F O U R P R I Z E S OF ^ 20,000! And Only ONE DAY more to draw. T P- irus, Nov. 21.— Yesterday the King transacted business v. i> h the Duke ot Richelieu. At two o'clock his Majesty went to St Cloud. The obsequies ot the Pere Elysee took place yesterday afte noon at tour o'clock, in the Church of St Germain L'Auxei rois, the parish uf the Castle. His Majesty is desirous of defiayitig the expense of it. The Duke of Angoule. ne, during his stay at Ryuen, received a great number of petitions, for the most part praying relief. Ilis Royal Highness has remitted to the Prefect of the department money to be distributed among the most indigent families. Minute inquiry has been made by Administration to ascertain the wonts ot the petitioners, and their claim to the bounty of the Prince. It is said, that ihcie wiil be presented the proj t of a law to establish, with lespect to all the administrations, an uniform mode ol paying the pensions of all persons employed by the sute. The Prevotal Couit of the department of Landes | " The enchainment of France until circumstances may permit other powers, to co- operate in her, partition, is the true key to those extravagant demand* of. which the treaty never proposed to take cognizance. Demands which she knows cannot be paid, and which are urged only to afford a pretext for protracted bondage. " Fortunately for Frante, those Powers which might wish to assist the scheme of dismemberment : t!- e paralyzed by their own internal difficulties. Still Fiance now feels that her dangers increase as the moment of her redemption approaches— that opportunities will be industriously courted to involve her in hostile discussions, which may retard the period of emancipation— and that an union of wisdom and energy can alone save her from the toils which the Prussian Cabinet is endeavouring to throw over her.'' PAR'S, N o v . 30. CHAMBER OF DEPUTIES, Nov. 29: His Excellency the Minister at War ( Gouvion St Cyr), ascended the Tribune, to corrmunkate ! the proj.' t of a law upon the ilecmiting of the Army. The Minister adverted to the disrto'kions of the 12th article of the Charier, which enacts that a l. i, v should fi> t the mode of recruiting the army, and supply the place of a code, the forms and severity of which had rendered its name odious. His Excellency was anxious to , aiiny all apprehension!:, by announcing the pacific intentions of the Fiench Goveiniiient and of theAIIied Sovereigns. His Majesty; said the Minister, has coir. municated to you the spirit of the proposed law. It has been dictated by no sentiment of fear or inquietude. Its only object is, to provide for the service of garrisons; and to complete the actual corps of the army. It has no intention to arm, or to render disposeable, i hr population. Peace continues to reign, upon terms certainly painful for France, but wbich will terminate by the operation of peace- itself; that is, by nejjociations, which the King confidently establishes upon the justice, the wisdom, and the Friendship of the Sovereigns. With iespett to us, maintaining silence up ® n ahd to compromise it, not only with the Ottomoo Porte; but with other Powers. " The fact is, as wjll be clearly proved, that the sole purpose of the mission of Ismael Gibraltat is the establishing of a direct trade between Sweden and Egypt, b-' a reciprocal exchange of the productions of both Countries. Ismael has caused a cargo of the prodtice Of his country to be brought to Gottenburgh, and is now employed in the purchase of Swedish productions: As tor the unhappy fate which the ciew of a Swedish vessel is 6aid to have met wilh off Coiunnaj we need only tematk, that this absurd story has come by the way of Paris and London ; and that in Sweden nothing at all is known ot it." EAST INDIES. fJcaammpp JKK- uukltr raa, , six irolcs north- west of Cuttacfc, May 15, 1817. This morning; the 1st battalion of the 18th regiment naiivt intantiy, the detachment of the Governor- General's body gnatd, and a brigade of guns, crossed the Mahanuda J iyer on its maich to Koordah. The general crosses in the evening, and will procced with us. M. jor Carter, with live these grave tojiics, we shall confine ourselves to developing the nature and motives of the law which we are instructed to present to yolj. All recruiting reduces itself to two principal kinds— voluntary service and compulsory service. Here the Minister traced the methods conseciated by law, for encouraging voluntary service. His Excellency thus recapitulated the principal points : The proposed mode of recruiting has then, for its object, merely to complete the actual corps of the army. The completion itself will be only according to the registers ; and the expenditure of the State will not permit that there should be kept on foot a greater force than is strictly necessary to relieve, in the duty of garrisons, those citizens who are taken from their families and their labour, and who, for the greater part, cannot continue without a proper indemnity.

They were executed next d; iy ; and at tile place of execution they all confessed their guilt. A lefer from L. iu'anne, dated Nov. 21, says, that the Ministers of France and Austria have in concert sent an official note, complaining foi mally of several Swiss public journals, which became the echo of the incendiary journals ot other countries ; the directors of which are incori igible revolutionists, and declared enemies of the repose of nations. These two Ministers complain also of incendiaiy pamphlets, which they designate by name, ana \ t- hich the Swis3 press disseminates in France. They conclude th-' ir note by demanding the ellectual repression of these scandalous abuses of the press. f From the Morning Chronicle.) The Prussian Minister at Pans has delivered a second Official Note, expressing the serious uneasiness and alarm which bis Court felt at tint pan of the speech - where his Majesty announces his intention ot recruiting bis armies— and to which the assembly reply in teims of approbation. No rcmatk upon this notice was made last night by the. demiofficial papers ot this country. Perhaps tbey h. d not received their instructions tu deny the f. tc , though true. We can assure the public that they could not deny it bona Jide— for the paper was actually delivered, and a warm conversation is said to have taken place on the topic between the Due de Richelieu and M. de. Goliz. The Prussian Note, after referring to the intimation given in the preceding Official, that the Couit of Berlin would insist on the payment of the liquidations stipulated by treaty, complains of the mea- uie proposed, of immense expenditure in the augmentation of the French army, for which there could be no reasonable cau- e, and of other equally unnecessary and burthensome measures ( alluding, no^ doubt to the Concordat,) instead of applying their resources, in the first instance, to the payment of their debts. Report says that tbis is the purport of the Official Note, which now agitates the first political ciicles in Paris— as the following letter will prove : — " PA R I S , NOV. 27.— The violent language of Prussia is certainly a species of fere mnjeste against legitimacy; and if there was any serious respect for the doctrine, we think the Holy Alliance would issue a Writ of Correction against the Minister Hardenbeig. " Prussia would certainly wish to drain France of more treasure ; but the true motive ol hei present exaction does not originate in a spirit of avarice, but in the suggestion of her fears. " She feels conscious that she has wounded the pride and excited the animosity of the Fiench nation collectively, by injudicious insults and an ungenerous abuse of victory. She 6c- es the moment approach when the cords which bound France to the rack must be cut— when she will be released, lacerated, but not mutilated— momentarily weaken ed, but with all the vital faculties unimpaired. " This image of renovated power st ates Pm- sia out of all respect for justice and the Bouibon dynasty. She sees no salvation uulets she can consummate her oppressions hy the dismemberment it France ; and the policy urged in her famous note when the Treaty of Paris was negociating, has rtceived an additional incitement ( torn the council? of her present tenor regular army, and to render it disposc. ible, so as to re- establioh order wherever it may be disturbed. This service aline can permit of limiting the ballots, and of liberating without return those who are not balloted ; because, in providing for necessity, a force preferable in point cf number, there will be added a security of fact, to the legal security of that liberation. Such is the whole military system of France, and the whole basis of the recruiting of the army. The mode is at once simple, and limited to the wants of a state of peace. The projet of the law- was then read. Its principal'enactments are developed in the pt^ ci'dirg speech. It was ordered to be printed annsent to the different Bureaux. Tbe commencement ot the discussion upon it wets fixed for Thursday la t. The President s. iid lie could not inform the Chamber when the Central Committee would make ts repoit upon the projet of the law rela'ing to the Liberty of the Press. The Deputies would receive notice upon that subject, at their own homes. The Clumber then adjourned. SPAIN. MADRID, NOV. 17.— Our official Gazette ha published, from the Mexican Gazettes, fresh de9 i s relative -. 0 the operations ofhis M j .- sty's troop- i r. iinst the rebel . Mina, and various advantages gained over him. But this intelligence comes down no later than to the 21st ot last June. Publ'c at'en: oi is chiefly fixed here upon the Russian squadron which has been ceded to us ; but the conditions of the cession have not yft been pubished. It. appears that the Ambassador of that na'i- m, u h i has quitted this capital, is at present at Cadiz, where, however, it is not believed that the squadron will arrive for some time.

Oil the other hand, accounts from the interior of the empire state, th. it in several parts they have already cold cil 7 degrees of Reaumur anil more. Sixteen millions of loubles have already been received by the Committee of the Sinking Fund towards the new loan. The most considerable sums are from England and Holland. Three hundred and seventy- six vessels have sailed from Archangel this year. H . - . M B U K G H , NOV. 25.— The Correspondent of 25th November having quoted an article which appeared in the English and French papers respecting the intention of the Pacha of Egypt to declare himself independent, and his overtures to England and Sweden to that effect, continues thus ; — " So runs an article which has been inserted in the ' Times of 29th October, and in the Journal des Delats, under the head of Hamburgh, October 16. " Fiom time to time there have appeared in foleign journals articles evidently talseand fabricated, respecting the abode ol Captain Ismael Gibraltar in Sweden. It wss made known last su ijpic- r byforeign p. ipers, that the arrival of this qfficer in Sweden had not any political object whatever. It is evident that such an article as the above can only . have bctn fabricated with is ? ir. v to injure Sws- den, companies ofthe 30th anil ^ company ot the lltli together with a brigade of guns, crossed the Ku;- goora, on the evening of the 13th, in progress to Ko'ordah by another loute. We undeistand also; that Major Hamilton's detachment from I'ooree, or Captain Armstrong's from Peeplay, wiH proceed by a third route to the above destination, so that we may expect that the insurrection will now be very soon crushed, as the instngents; finding themselves thus pieased on alt sides, by these combined and welldirected movements, Will most likely disperse, ani will be, in the end, obliged to solicit forgiveness oa cur own terms. General Manindell has caust- ii proclamations to be issued in all directions, offering a general amnesty; provided the rebels will return peaceably to iheii homes and desert their leaders, to whom only no pardon for their crimes will be granted. Ju^ bundoo is stated to be at Koordah, all the passes to which have been strongly stockaded. Captain Armstioiig's aft. iir at Peeplay must have had a nio6t happy effect on the insurgents. It is supposed that their inteoticn was to have attacked Capt. Lefevre in his march from Pooiee to Cuttack, and to have endeavoured to rescue the R. ijah, ur » der his chai ge. They were however, too late, Captain L. having Is ft PeepLiy the day before they arrived. In the action, Dhurnoo Huri ichunder, their Sirdar, is leported to h ive been wounded, and another principal i ingleadei killed. Twenty bodiea weie fuUiid dead on the plain. Colonel Greene, with the other wing of the Qd battalion LOtii native infantry, arrived at Cuttack this morning. He is to be in command of the station, having under him the above companies and tout companies of the 11th intantiy i the latter from the Rajah's guard, who has not yet set off tor Calcutta, whither we understand he is ultimately going. He is rather a good looking man, of about 30 yeaij of age ; his pride and sett- importance are truly ridiculous; he nevei condescendsto returnthesalute of any one, whatever may be his rank. Next to Juggernaut, he conceives himself to Oe the greatest being in existence. The Minto, which we understand is conveying a detachment of artillery by sea to Cuttack, has not yet arrived.— Cal. Times. M A D R A S , July 22.— We hear from public report that his excellency the most noble the Governor. General will, eaily in July, leave the Presidency tor the Upper Piovinces ; and that Sir John Malcolm is toembaikin a few days, io a pilot schooner, and to proceed on a mission to the southward. • From the following extracts of a letter from Cuttack, it will be seen with tegret that the district of Khooidah continues in a disturbed state, owing to tbe obstinate resistance of the Pykes. It will be lenuiked that several of the rebels have been executed, which we ti us: will have a good elit- ct ia restoring order : — June. 3.—" The party which I mentioned iti my last, ot tiie 29ih ul. inao, ordered from the 1st battalion 18th, to lioid itself in readiness to march at a moment's warning, was merely to escort a brigade ot guns to Major Cartel's detachment, employed clearing the Gungpairah Pass, from whose force two companies and a couple of six- poundera had been detached towards Pooree ( Juggernaut), as reports prevail that the insurgents are assembling in that quarter. However, the destination of this said party is not known exactly ; although we have every reason to believe that it is intended to reinforce Major Hamilton, in command ot that post. The two companies of the 11th regiment under Captain Nicolson are now at Balccttee, for the purpo- e of keeping up our communication with Cuttack ; and that in consequence of these steps, the inhabitants are returning in that quarter, with the sanction of the Pykes, and. under a promise ol paying the revenue to them, or whatever power is most predominant. May 30.—" Last night we heard some shots in the jungle to the west of our camp, and at lour o'clock his morning the insurgents set fire to the village of Mucken Persaud, close to our cairp Several bullockmen were fired at from the jungle about eight o'clock, vheu going Out for forage for their cattle, but no accident occurred. A letter from Pooree of the 29th mentions a paity having marched out that day teu miles in search cf some rebels, but letumed without firing a shot or seeing a man. A party trom Captain Armstrong's force this morning attacked some of the rebels not far distant ft om his post at Baujepore, in or near a village belonging to the Dewan or his son, who it is supposed was at tiieii head ; but, as usual, after they fired a few shots from the jungle, they were off. Some grain was taken, and the following day a party was sent to burn the Dewan's house. May 31.—" Between seven snd eight o'clock a continued firing was heard in the direction of the hills, which pioved to be an attack on Captain Lefevre's detachment, stationed at Khoordaghur, at the foot of the hills, and on a 6mall party ot 20 men of his posted in the stockade up the pass, eight of sVhom had ju^ t come down to cook ; fortunately the escort with the dawk was just passing, and saved them from being cut up, together withCal air, Legettmg together as many men as he i and pursuing the party as tar as possible. The rebels came close to a tank and sortie huts, and fired into his camp without v.' aunaing a man. ' One maa was killed belonging to the n bels, who was an archer* and ia jirob ibility y/ as obliged to c « m< f i r..-- iver than a person with a matchlock. Our parly ep the pass had or. e sepoy killed, and another dangerously wounded, who died shortly alter being brought into our camp. The number ot rebels were about 200, and their attack upon Captain Lefevre was evidently with the intention of cutting off the retreat of the party stationed up the pass. Reports stare, that four or five others were 6hot, but carried off. June 1.—" A letter from the Magistrate of Cuttack intimates that the Tykes are laying waste the district in all quarters $ that the insurrection is extending itself towards Balasore. A company ofthe 11 th regiment left camp this evening to join Major Carter's detachment at Gor. gparah, the company of the 18th regiment being ordered to return. June 2.—" I think you would not be surptised to 6ee, as we did this morning, the dawk escorted from Baujepore to this and back again by a Jemcdai's party of 24 sepoys, although the distance does not exceed 5 miles. I fancy indeed this is not the only one, for other dawks are obliged to be escorted likewise. The Thannah of Gope, and it is said the only remaining salt- wotks or Choukees on the Mahahnuddee, have been destioyed by the Pykes ; it is reported that fresh outrages are committed by the Pykes from Coojung and other partsi June 3 " Yesierday afternoon informatiort was received of Major Carter having 6ent out a paity the night before, who surrounded a village and took a Sirdar and six of the Rebels \ the former was ordered to be bangi'd yesterday, and 1 make no doubt bnt the others will be disposed of in like manner. We heard also that Lieut. Peatson had succeeded in getting hold of two, some distance from Peeplee, where he is stationed with two companies ; and orders have been sent, so report says, forjtheii being hanged also. Lieut. Herring has arrived in the camp with the light company 2d battalion I Sth regiment from Captain Armstrong's detachment at Baujepore. " It is impossible to say what effect an example of these rebels may have on the minds of the inhabitants ; as to the Pyke3 there is no hope yet of their coming in, for they can always effect their re- | treat and keep out of our way in such extensive and thick jungles, if they wish, and at the same time, bv their threats, prevent the inhabitants in this quarter from returning. Some villagers have lately been taken in the jungles, and say if they were to return, the Pykes wouid the first oppoitunity take off their beads, and therefore they prefer remaining. Under these circumstances tranquillity in this ptovince, I fear, will not be easily restored." given in detail, as sion as received.— Fayeitevitle Observer, 16th inst.

In the afternoon the royal visitors took an airing in their carnages to- S wards Cl. iverton Downs, and in that neighbourhood ; for upwards of two hours. Last night the Earl of Shaftesbury, with his three lovely daughters, Ladies Harriet, Charlotte, and Caroline Ashley, arrived at the White Hart Inn, from their seat at St Giles's; in Dorsetshire.

The fnllowing melancholy particular of the loss of the Diana, we copy from the Calcutta Government Gazette :— " Captain Lyell left China on the 18th February, and arrived at Malacca on the morning of the 4th of March ; he remained there but a few hours, and made sail in the evening for Madras. Two hours after leaving Malacca, the ship struck on a rock which is not marked in the charts— she had then top- gallant sails set, and had been going at the rate of 7 knots and a halt per hour ; after some time she righted and floated again in 19 fathoms. " As it was discovered that she made much water, all sail was set with the view of stranding her, but the land breeze and the currents opposed this. " Captain Lyell, who was in a very infirm state of health, remained by the ship to the last, endeavouring to save the people and the property committed to his charge, in the performance of which duty his life fell a sacrifice. About daybreak the next morning ( 5th) the Captain and Officers, with a few men, in all 10 persons, were on board, when the ship filled uncommonly fast, and went down suddenly. At this lime the Captain was on the quarter with two men, and from his never rising again, it is supposed he was forced into the stern windows: the two men who were with him also perished ; the remainder were saved, some of whom were taken up almost in a lifeless 6tate. " The ship went down in 21 fathoms, about six miles distant from Malacca." June 21'.— The rebellion in Cuttack would appear to have been finally quelled by the judicious arrangements of General Sir G. Martindell. July 1.5.— The three expected Indiamen, Rose, Streatham, and Princess Charlotte, anchored in the Roads on Tuesday evening. Detachments of troops for the several regiments on this establishment were landed from them on Wednesday and Thursday, and marched to the depots at Poonamalee and the Mount. It is with much concern we state, that considerable sickness has again made its appearance in Allahabad.— The patients in hospital of his Majesty's regiments had suddenly increased from 50 to 170, and the number was daily accumulating, trom 15 to 2 0 going daily. The sickness also prevails, as last year, among the natives. U N I T E D S T A T E S . CHARLESTON, Oct. 2 1 . — A gentleman who arrived here yesterday, from Fernandina, which place lie left on the 16th inst. repotts the following particulars relative to the situation of affairs at Amelia Island ; by which it would appear tbat a scene ol the utmost contention and confusion has arisen among the Patriots. It would seem that the French officers, with Com. Aury and his ****** troops, form a strong party, in opposition to that which ( with Sheriff liubbatd at its head) is still in entiie possession of the civil authority. The parties were pretty nearly balanced in strength and resources, but the appearance of Com. Champlin oft St Mary's bar, with from three to six sail ot vessels, supposed to contain a number of troops, was expectcd to turn the scale in favour of what is called the American party— the pert/ of Governor Hubbard. In a few days we hope to present something more satisfactory, in regard to this revolution, to our readers. ANOTHER LETTER. A gentleman who left Fernandina on the IGth inst. inform us, that the French party, under Commodore Aury, with his troops, on one side, and Governor Sheriff Hubbard, with all the Americans, and the greater part of the seamen, on the other, are at open war, and it was generally expected blood would be shed before the commotion ended : such was the instability of the Government, that new Councils were formed every two or three days. On the 15th, an arrangement was formed, which excluded the military entirely from power, and there was no doubt that this Council would be overturned soon by the military, who, in their turn, would exclude the civilians ot this rising empire from all participation in the administration. For the last three j days, the parlies have been actually in arms against ! each olher. By a gentleman direct from Nashville, Pensylyarta, ( 6ays the Washington North- Carolina Recorder) we have understood that a duel was tought just before he left there, between Generals Adair and Jackson, of which the latter was killed.

Tiitf affair was terminated by the arrival of a suptiior officer, and the day after, the Judge de Fait made his report, when nine individuals were apprehended and conducted to St Omet's.

A yesterday at the York House Hotel, This evening the Earl of Shaftesbury, bis three daughters, the Marchioness ot Bath, and several other distinguished personages dined with her Majesty. To- night the fancy balls at the Upper Rooms commence under the direction cf Captain Wyke, A numerous assemblage of fashionables are expected to honour the Rooms, from a probability that the Master of the Ceremonies will retire from that situation to accept of an appointment in the West Indies. IIER MAJESTY. B A T H , Monday morning.— Yesterday morning, the Queen aga n visited the Pump- room, in a private carriage and pair.. She was accompanied by their Royal Highnesses the Princess Elizabeth and the Duke of Clarence. Her Majesty continues to enjoy good health, and entered the room with her accustomed complacent smile ; condescendingly bowing to the persons present as she passed to the handsome chair ptovided for her sole use, by the Corporation, and which always stands in the centre of the carpet, immediately opposite the pump. After her Majesty had drank the water, and remained a few minutes in conversation with her physician, Dr Gibb^, the royal party retiied to their carriage, and ie'. u: ned directly to Sydney Place. At 12 o'clock divine service was performed at the Queen's house by the reverend Charles Crook, M. A. rector of Bath. There were p- esent t'le Queen, their Royal Highnesses the Princess Elizabeth and the Duke of Clarence, the Countesses Ilchester and Melville, the Earl of Winchelsea; Generals Sir Henry Campbell and H. Taylor, and Colonels Desbrowe and Stephenson. Two of the pews cn the south side of the chancel in the Abbey Church have been fitted up in the most supei b style, with fine crimson cloth, in festoon draperies, surmounted with the crown, and this circumstance inducing an expectation that the Queen would attend divine seivice, the church was crowd cd to excess at an ea- ly hour this morning ; but," as we have before slated, her Majesty does not intend appearing at public worship during her stay in Baih. At the conclusion of the service, her Majesty, accompanied by the Piincess Elizabeth, the Duke of Clarence, and Lady Ilchester, proceeded to take her customary airing in her travelling carriage and four. They passed up Great Pulteney Street into Northgate Street, and taking the direction of Walcot Parade, extended the ride as far as the beautiful village of Batheaston, and returned by the same route, after having been out about an hour and a half. At iix o'clock the Royal Family regularly sat down to dinneri The Corporation ot Sristol are expected here on Tuesday, for the purpose of presenting an address of condolcnce ; after which, we understand her Majssty intends passing through B istol to King's Weston, the romantic seat of Lord De Clifford, about five miles from that city. Sir Henry Halford will not leave Windsor till j the breaking up of the Queen's Council, when he will be the bearer of their report to the Queen. The proprietors of the theatre hare lined up a ' box in the highest style of elegance, in compliment to her Majesty, and for the reception of any of her suite who may honour the theatre with their presence. B A T I I , Tuesday, Dec. 2.— At an early hour this morning, Captain Wyke, and Mr Marshall, tbe Master of the Ceremonies, attended at the Pump- room, and ai the company arrived, they were conveniently placed at each end of the recesses. From this regulation, the whole of the spacious avenue was kept fiee for the admission of her Majesty. A few minutes before nine o'clock, the Duke | of Clar ence, Lord Winchelsea, Colonel Desbrowe, and several other distinguished noblemsn arrived. Piince Leopold leaves Clarcmont in a few days for Weymouth. Fie will reside at Gloucester Lodge, in which apartments are pieparing for his reception. His Seiene Highness will afterwards return to Saxony tor two or three months, on a visit to his family. His Excellency the Dutch Ambassador gave an elegant er. teitainment on Wednesday, at his residence, Whitehall Place. The table formed a beautiful coup d'ceil. In the centre was a costly plateau, on whicli were eight figures, each beaiing a branch with three lights, and a large one in the middle, beaiing eleven, with various licli ornaments; the whole was served up in silver gilt, anil lic. h French porcelain. Among the numerous and distinguished pel sons piesent weie— Prince Estt- rhazy, Duke San Carlos, Duke of Leeds, Count I. ieven, Count Muuster, harl of Liverpool, Earl Harrowby, Earl Bathiirst, l. ord Castlcreagh, Lord Melvilie, Count Palmella, Count d'Aigle, Monsieui de Bourke, Baron Pfeffel, Baron Just, the Turkish Minister, Mr Planta, Mr Croker, Chevalier Campuzane, Colonel Ragay, Mr Wagner, £ cc. BRIGHTON1 , Dec. 1.— The weather being so very unsettled, and the rain having fallen nearly the whole ot the day, his Royal Highness the Prince Regent was prevented from taking liis accustomed ride on the Downs, but enjoyed exercise in the Riding School. On Sunday last, a chatity sermon wa3 preached by the reverend E. B. Vardon, LL. B. ot Clare Hall, Cambridge, curate and lecturer ot St Anne'?, Westminster, in aid ofthe funds ol" the Brfghthelmstone Dispensary, at the Chapel Royal, whin upwards of 701. were collected. We have received a communication from a correspondent, who states, that the arrangements for the retirement of his Royal Highness tiie Duke of York from the office of Commander in Chief are nearly completed. His Royal Highness will carry with him into retirement irom the active duties ot this situation, a consciousncss of a most independent and useful discharge ot them, and will be accompanied by the applause and good wishes of ail classes.— The functions of Commander in Ciiiet will devolve ( as is usual in time of peace), on the Secretary of War,' who will conduct tiie same under the control ot his Majesty's Ministers That most active and excellent public servant, Sir Henry Torrens, will, on the retirement of his royal master, succeed to the appointment of Adjutant General, in the room of bir H. Calvert, who lias so ably filled that situation lor many years, and who will retire upon a handsome private fortune, and the provision of his regimctt of two battalions Sun. It. was on Thursday, at Brighton, as we understand, that the Duke of fork teudeied his resignation. The proposal was not then taken into consideration ; but Mir. ir. ers have since intoimed his Royal Highness, that, in their unanimous opinion, it is not called for by any icasons aiisingoutot the constitution.- — Packet- In the event ot G- meral M'Q leen retiring from New South Wales, it is said tiiat Sir T. Busbane will pioceed thither. A statue of the light honourable Spencer Perceval was placed, last week, on the north side of the chancel in All Saints' Cbutch, Noithampton. It represents the late Minister in his robes, as Chancellor ot the Exchequer, with a roll ot paper in his hand. The figuie stands on a piaio pedestal of maible highly ornamented, on which is tile simple inscription— SPENCER PERCEVAL. The Glasgow, 50, Captain the honourable Anthony Maitland, arrived on Friday at Portsmouth from Deptford ; and tbe Andromache, Captain Shireff, fiom Chatham— both fitted tor foreign service. The Glasgow is destined to the Mediterranean service, but more particularly, we understand, to attend upon his Excellency the Commander in Chief ( the honourable General . Maitlana), in his vitjts to the mote distant parts ot his important command. The Andromache will sail immediately for the Brazil station, Commodore Bowels having gone, in the Amphion, round Cape Horn, to attend to the British interests in ijthe Pacific. One ot the main points, it is said, given in charge to the Commodore is, to demand satisfaction from King Ferdinand's autlicriti'.' S for British property seized ur. d withheld by them. Extract of a letter from Captain James, of the brig Hero, from Zante, dated Stangate Creek, Nov. 3 0 : — " On the 8th inst. we fell in with a sauadron of Algerinc cruisers, three brigs and one schooner, about 4 0 miles east of Gibraltar. The schooner ran alongiidejunder American colours, but we soon saw that they were Turks. They hailed us, and ordered us to heave to and get our boat out, and come alongside. I was loath to comply with these orders, but being obliged I got the boat out and went alongside the schooner; 1 was then ordeied to the brig, which I supposed to be the Conmodoie. After examining our Mediterranean pass, I was told to return on board ; they then hoisted that previous to his leaving St Helena, his baggage was strictly examined by order of the Governor, and that a packet, containing the history of Buonaparte, written by Las CaSas by the immediate desire ot Buonaparte, and under his direction, was taken from him ; he made pressing applications that it might be returned, which the Govetnoi pointedly refused ; at length it was agited, that t- is most; extraordinary document should remain in the possession of General Lowe, and with his sanction Las Casas affixed his seal, that the packet should not be opened without his consent. Lis Casas states, that lie knows more of the history of Buonaparte than any other person, being for a 6eriesof years his Private Secretary ; and to no other peison did Buonaparte ever disclose his mind. Las Casas is a middle- aged man ; his son, a youth of 12 or 14 yeai3 of age, accompanies him. SHOCKING OCCURRENCE.— A seijeant, corpora', and two privates of his Majesty's marines, on duty looking atter smugglers on tbe sands near Ranisgate yesterday morning, at six o'clock, were, by a sudden separation of a great part of the chalk cliff, buried, and instantly killed. Two of the bodies have been dug out hteially ctushed ; the others ate not yet found. The serj- ant is a married man, but has left no family. A subscription tor the widow has been opened. The woik of retrenchment in the establishments of the Government departments is going on, and the whole, it is understood, are to be reduccd to the lowest possible scale. Tbe ordnance department, it is said, is among the most prominent, and at the arsenal at Woolwich it has already commenced. A farther reduction in the labourets employed there has been cariied into effect, and several of the mechanics are now substituted in their places. The reductions, it is said, are not to be confined to subordinate situations, tor it is added, that the department for barracks for the artillery is wholly to be abolished, while its business, which must now be trilling, merges into the general icutine of the Ordnance Office in Pall Mall. The principal, Colontl Neville, ot c. iurse retires on some allowance, and probably his assistant ; of clerks who will be thus removed, some have it is said been employed five or six years, and it is reported that there is a possibility of no allowance being granted them. Reductions at the Tower aie also it seems intended ; as likewise at the stations rouad the coast, to consist ot inferior officers, & c. Mr IlJbei. t Waid's journey to Ireland was for the purpose cf inspecting the several depots tor ordnance stores in tbat country, where reductions to as great an extent as possible will also be carried int> 6 effect. Tbe individuals have received notice that their services will not be lequired after the termination of tbe present year. The Ordnance depaitment, it ii stated, is -> otv under the contiol of the Lords of tbe Treasury, same as ail olher effices, as was recommended by the Committee on Finance in their report These measures of economy must of course reduce the estimates for this extensive department for the ensuing year, and which, in thcBe times of pressure, is some relief to the country. Yesterday, at two o'clock, a Cabinet Council was held at the Foreign Office, which sat liil about half- past four. Tuesday evening Mr Latchford, the King's Messenger was sent off with dispatches to the Court of Madrid. Mr Krouse, an extraordinary Messenger, was sent off with dispatches to Vienna. Shortly followed the Piincess Elizabeth, attended by Lady Ilchester, into the Pump- room. The royal and noble party were not long in waiting before her Majesty came in a supeib chair of state, carried bv men in scarlet cloaks, preceded and followed by two footmen in state liveries. As soon as the Queen alighted from the sedan chair, the whole of the admitted company stood up, and the scene was tiuly interesting. The honourable Mrs Captain Paulett was introduced to her Majesty, with whom the Queen remained in conversation for some minutes. General Johnson hid the honour of being particularly noticed by tbe royal visitors. The Queen confined herself to the drinking of one glass of water, which was handed to her by Colonel Desbroive, Toe Princess Elizabeth most affectionately assisted her royal mother into and from the Pump- ioom. We ought to observe that the Queen was pleased to express to Captain Wyke and Mr Marshall ( late paymaster in the 81st regt.), as well as to Dr Gibbs and Mr Tudor, surgeon, her extieme pleasure in passing her morning visits at the Pump- toom. At ene o'clock, her Majesty, attended by the Duke of Clarence and Lady Ilchester, took a carliage airing through the principal streets in the city, for upwards of an hour. B A T H , Wednesday, Dec. 1.—' The morning visit of the Queen, and their Royal Highnesses the Duke of Claience and Princess Elizabeth to the Pump- room, was distinguished for the veiy numerous assemblage of fashionables, who avail themselves j the red flag. They had thiee or four prize ships of this very favourable opportunity of seeing the royal party. The usual attendants were in readme, s to receive the august personages, and we only observed the Earl ef Shaftesbury and Lord John Thynnc, as an addition to the distinguished characters mentioned in our previous communications. Dispensing with the routine of movement, we shall confine ourselves to the more interesting particulars of the introduction of persons to the royal presence. Among those who were honoured this morning, | we observed the Viscountess Anson, Lady Chailotte Fitzgerald, Lady Adelaide. Forbes, Mr Forbes, Mrs Hudson ( sister to Sir Charles Palmer), | M'S3 Blackweil ( cousin to Lady Anson), and seve- | talctljci individuals v. hete names wc could not learn.' with them, Swedish or Poituguese. They did not board us, but were vety impertinent." It is stated in a letter from Calais, dated the 28th ult. that a few days ago, a party ot British dragoons, within a few miles oi Calais, having occasion to return to their former cantonments, were refused admittance, when a Iracas took place, in which two soldiers were killed and 11 wounded. The affair had occasioned much conversation in the neighbourhood ; and the circumstances attending the quarrel were expected to form the subject of an immediate investigation.— Morning paper. The following account of the above affair is trom a ct r espohdent: CUSTOM HOUSE REGULATIONS. The following is a copy of a letter, dated Custom- house, London, Nov. 29, 1817, to Collectors and Comptiollers of Out Ports, containing some regulations interesting to merchants, patticulariy that which directs that parties may be informed of the causes of seizure, an ignorance of which has sometimes given the seizing officer a decided advantage over the party :—. " Gentlemen— Having had under consideration a Me. mortal of the Committee of Ship- owners of this port to the Lords of the Treasury, resquesting relief iu several matters therein al. uded to ; and being of opinion that iu the following cases the delay occasioned to the parties, in making application to us, may be dispensed with, viz- " Where an error or omission is discovered in a Master's report on the day on which it is made, and before any seizure, stop, or detention has taken place, you may, on being satisfied that no fraud was intended, permit the report to ' oe amended. " In c- ses when an additional number of wether sheep is necessary to be put on board vessels outward bound, for the use and consumption of the passengers and others, you may permit such additional cumber to ba shipped, on application being made to you for the purpose. " When vessels lying at a port to which they do not belong require new registers, the Collector and Comptroller at the port where the vessel is lying, may cause the vessel to be surveyed, and take the Master's bond, and transmit the certificate of survey aud bond to the Collector and Comptroller of the port where tne owner, reside, and the Collector and Comptroller of such port may thereupon register the vessel de novo, on all the requisites of the law being first duly complied with. " Marine lists delivered in after the time limited bv fiw, may be received by you, on proof to ycur satisfaction that the delay arose from the sickness of the Master, or other unavoidable cause. " In committing to you the discretionary power of granting the request of the paitles in the above c„ ses, and thereby relieving them from the inconvenience and delay of trai emitting their petition to us ; we think it right at the same time to enjoin you to be vigilant ap.- l circumspect in application of these indulgences, for which we shall hold you responsible ; and you are to transmit to us, at the end of every quarter, a list of the cases com. prehended in this order, i-. i which you have exercised tin discreiion hereby committed to you. " We further think it fit to direct, that in cases of seizure of goods or vessels, when the proprietors are de^ sirous of being acquainted with the cause of such se; zure,' yourselves and the seizing officers are not to withhold any proper information, on application being made to you or them respectively by the owner, or any feiscn duly authorised by him." We are assured tbat the American Congics^ will meet on the first Monday in this month, accoiding to their Constitution. A treaty has been entered into between the United States and several nation* of Indians on the Ohio, by which the United States become possessed of eight million acres of lard. This treaty, with Others of a similar nature, forms the commencement of a system by which the w hite and red population of the United States will Le PAHIS, NOV. 29,-— A very seiious affray took | amalgamated by a gradual but surepiocess. The foundation of this system wns laid by President Jefferson, with a view to the civilization of the Indian nations— a system which has alr eady diffused among them a knowledge of the value of property, created ,, a corresponding desire to appropriate it specifically, and impressed them with the necessity of adequate V « " « protection. It is said, that, on board the vessel which sailed lately from Portsmouth for South America, were a Colonel and his officers, non- commissioned office: J, and appointment^ for a regiment ol Lancers. We have been favoured with the perusal of several letters respecting the seizure of British vessels • n tiie United States. The writers express theit hope that the Government of America will not proteed to extremities, by condemning the ships and cargoes, as it was next to an. impossibility that the new act should be generally known. The Navigation Act of the United States, which was to be carried into effect 1st October, is an imitation of bes, Bart, who then lived in Prince's Street, ' over- selves. We ofcierve, that this question has also powered the managers of the town, and the design to build in this situation was finally abandoned in the year 1793. In the year 1801, tbe Magistrates were again frustrated in their designs to build to the westward of the Mound by a letter, written in a firm and decided tone, to the Council, by the late Honourable Henry Erskine, Mr Baron Clerk, and Mr Henry Jardine, in which they boldly and svowedly maintained the real right ot servitude, in virtue of their contracts enteied into upon the basis of Mr Craig's plan. In 1811, the question Wis again agitated, and a case was submitted to eminent Counsel, the opinion was in all respects unfavourable to the wishes of the Town Council, extending as well to the right to build upon the Earthen Mound, as upon the south si. ieof Prince's Street, to the westward of 1. The town was advised, that il it had been the intention the famed one cf England, prohibiting all wares, i of the Magistrates to build in the proposed situagoodf, and merchandize from being imported, except direct from the country of their growth or manufacture. These vessels were in consequence seized for having Madeira wine on board bringing it from England, and not being the growth or manufacture ot that country.

On Tuesday, a respectable General Meeting of the Inhabitants, convened by public advertisement, took place in Merchants' Hall, which, before the hour appointed for business, became so crowded, that it wis found necessary to adjourn to the Freemasons' Hall, Tile purpose of the meeting was to consider what measures it would be proper to take in regard to the buildings now erecting, and prop o s e d to be erected, on the North Biidge, in violation of the original plan of the New Town. Professor Playfair, having been called to the chair bv acclamation, Mr James Stuart opened the business of tbe meeting by a very long speech. Alter stating under what circumstances the meeting was held, and why • it was held in the place it was, he gave a detail of those proceedings which had taken place since the act fnr extending the royalty of Edinburgh was obtained, in the year 1766, between the Magistrates of the city on the one hand, who have shewn great anxiety to erect buildings on the south side of Prince's Sheet, and their feuars in the New Town upon tbe other, who have shewn no less zeal to prevent so obvious an encroachment on their privi leges and comforts. of last century place, and parliamentary commissioners, to superintend the election of public edifices, were appointed. Among the buildings projected and erected by tbem was the Register Office, and Lord Mor. tor, who was Lord Clerk Register, obtained a large giant of money for electing that most useful and splendid edifice. Those Commissioners concluded their labours by paying over some thousand pounds, the balance of the unappropriated funds in their hands to the Town Council, to assist them in building the North Bridge. The Town Council of that day did not act upon, or even adopt the plan for the New Town furnished by Mr Craig, • trrfiitect, though it was universally approved of, until they had the sanction of the Comnii: sioners. Having adopted this plan they advertised in the newspapers that it would lie open at the Council XJaahiuer, for the inspection ot such as inclined to become feuars, and upon the faith of this plan the feuats o! the New Town contracted with the Town Council. No long time, however, had elapsed before tbe Town Council, instead of adhering to Mr Craig's plan of the New Town, granted feus upon the very tpot to which it is now our business particularly to refer, ,- iz. the ground upon the north eastmost row of houses in Prince's Street, and the North Loch upon the south. IT fact a row of houses began to show itself where St Anne's Street lately stood, and where, in Mr Craig's plan, you will find a row of trees, instead of a IOW of houses. These houses no sooner appeared, than the feuars took the alarm, and represented to the Town Council that such buildings were a violation of their contract with the Town, but tbey were for the time satisfied by assurances that those feus were granted in order to remove the hazard arising from the precipice occasioned by the working of the quarries in that quarter, and also that the feuars were restrained from raising the chimney tops of the houses to be built so high as the level of Piince's Stteet : But as soon as the feuars found that feus had actually been granted upon the south side of Prince's Street itself, without any restriction as to the height of the buildings, they, in the month of September, 1771, obtained an interdict to stop the leuars from proceeding with their buildings, which interdict was finally confirmed by the House of Peers on the lOih of April, 1772. At last a compromise was made, when a submission was entered into between the town and the feuarj on the 19th of March 1776. The arbiter found the Town Council liable in the whole expense of the legal proceedings ; that the whole ground to the east of St David Street should be k - pt as garden ground, excepting only that pait which falls under the feu granted to Messrs John Home, and Young and Trotter, which I hereby declare shall remain as their private property, subject to the restriction contained to their feu rights already granted. As also excepting the feus upon the Street commonly called Canal Street; and that the houses presently unfinished, which are the- property of Reid and Thomson, slull be dressed up in some decent manner, and that the areas to be built upon, betwixt this last mentioned house and the front buildings upon Prirtce's Street aforesaid, • hall be executed in proper taste, at the determination of tiie said James Stoddatt, Esq. ( then Loid Provost) and under the inspection ot David Henderson, architect." Accordingly the Magistrates immediately inserted in the charters wbich they granted of building ground, both in Prince's Street and other parts ot the New Town, an express declaration in the following terms, most of them bearing date in the ysar 1781 :—" That the ground lying to the south, betwixt Prince's Street and the lake called the North Loch, is and shall remain, in all time coming, as is directed by the decteet arbitral, dated," See, The first attempt on the part of the town to build on the south side of Prince's Street, occurred in year 1779, within four days after the date ot the decreet arbitial. At that period the town granted a building feu to Mr William Jamieson, mason, of v ground on the south side of Prince's Street, aiid immediately to the westward of the Earthen Mound, and the feuar actually began by erecting his cellarage. Upon tbis occasion, the weight that attached to the itraonstiances of the late Sn William Forlion, " it w ' u! d have been necessary for them not only to have laid aside Mr Craig's plan, but to have adopted another in its place," and " to have advertised leuars in some decisive way ol this change of pi, n." In the year 1814, an act of Parliament was passed, appointing Commissioners for building the Regem's Biidge, and executing the other magnificent improvements. The Lord Provost, and otheis ot the Magistrates of the city of Edinburgh, could not fail to know that that statute enjoined that no building should be erected upon that part of the Calton Hill belonging to the town, higher than the foundation of the Bridewell, excepting the jail, or some such building, without the expiess approbation of the Lord President, and certain other persons named in the statute. Yet, Sir, did the Magistrates of this city, in the year 1816, without any previous communication with the Commissioners, joined wiih them by the act in 1814, pursue measures tending necessarily to lessen the value of those feus on the Regent Biidge, to the price of which the acting Commissioners alone looked for indemnification K r iheir heavy advances, and enabling them, according to their construction of the act they applied tor and obtained, to erect buildings of greater height than was permitted by the act of 1814, and of such height as to deprive us ofthe splendid prospect of the city and public buildings, which the works in progress on the Calton Hill gave us the prospect ot so soon enjoying. Nay, more, without noti, e to any one ol the feuars in the New Town, and especially to those feuars whose leal light of servitude was expressly declared in tbe charters, following the date of the decreet aibitral ; without notice in the Edinburgh Gazette, or in the Edinburgh Evening Courant, they applied for and obtained that statute, by the provisions of which they conceive themselves entitled to proceed with the erection of buildings on both sides of the bridge. in consequence ot an agreement between the Council and Messrs Ciegboi n and Wilson, the proprietor ol St Ann's Street, an act of Parliament was actually applied for and obtained, in the year 1816, authorizing the Magistrates and Council of this city to erect houses and buildings on the Earthen Mound, and to contract with the proprietors ol houses and areas in St Ann's Street and Canal Street, in order that buildings inay be erected within twelve feet of the paiapet walls ot the not th end' of the bridge. It is the last provision of the act on which the Magistrates found their light to erect that unseemly pile of buildings which so much deforms the city. Tiie avowed object ot tbis act was to enable ihe M igistiaies to authorise the erection ol a chapel at the west end ot Piince's Street ; and even if it had been intimated in the Gazette or Courant, the notice must have failed to attract the attention of the inhabitants, as- the only part of the title of the bill applicable to the enactment I have read, runs thus : —" And for effecting certain improvements in the neighbourhood thereof' ( chapel at the' west end of Piince's Street) " and in other parts ol the extended royalty of the said city." Mr Stuart, after referring to the ulterior proceedings o f t h e Council, moved a string of resolutions, on which the Meeting came to the following decision, " That they having obtained the opinion ol biea agitated in the Bargh of It vine, and that the Incorporated Trades there have a I ftj. jd y resolved to petition the Prince Regent on the subject.— Ayr Advertiser. At the general meeting ofthe county on Monday last, after the business of the day was disposed of, the report of the committee of the Commissionei s of the county of Edinburgh, relative to the proposed bill for the erection of district lunatic assylums in Scotland, was presented and read. The committee state it as their opinion, that this humane and necessary legislative measure, by the aid OT judicious alterations, may receive effect, without affording any reasonable ground of complaint to any party. On Monday, during the masonic procession, a young fellow picked a gentleman's pocket ol his handkerchief. He was immediately detected, and sent to the Police Office. Next day he was sentenced to thirty days' confinement in Bridewell. On Thursday a journeman baker was lined five shillings for walking on the side Pavement with a bi « ket of bread on his head ; and itjwas at the same time intinated by the Magistrate that if this reprehensible practice was persisted in, a much more severe punishment would be awarded to future offenders. D A R I N G ATTEMPT AT ROBBERY.— On Tuesday, about eleven o'clock in the foienon, as a piivate ot the Scots Greys was on his way to Glasgow; a tall man overtook him near B'oxbum, and after attempting to take from him a bundle he was carrying, struck him on the face with a large stick, and wounded him severely : the soldier, however, wrested the stick from dip fellow:, knocked him down and some men having come to his assistance, he was secured, and brought to Edinburgh.

As to boots the wages paid for making them are in general greater than those given for shoes. The variety of pi ices however, render it difficult to give any specific statement as to them, and the circumstance of not one man in twenty being employed in this branch makes such a statement not so necessaiy. Tun SEASON.— There are at present in the shiubberry of the Rev. James Smyth, at Cnurchtown, in the county of Wateiford, two cabbage rose bushes, with a lull blown rose, and a number of buds in diffeient stages, on each bush. In Mr Thomas Elliot's garden, Randlestown, there is an appletiee in full bloom : and in the garden adjoining to Mr Moore, there are two trees in the same situation. ANTIQUITIES.— As some workmen were foiming a small quay, a few days ago, at Carnarvon, they discovered the remains of an immense wooden bridge, formed of oak, buried several feet in the sand, and extending over the river Seient. One beam, which was got up, measured upwards of fifty feet in length. This biidge appears to have formed originally a communication between Segontium and Coed- Helen summer- house, in all probability a Roman watch tower, one end ot the biidge being contiguous to the old walls ol Hengaer Cysteint.. The entiie of this biidge is supposed to have extended upwards of 400 yards. FUMES OF PITCH IN CONSUMPTION.— In consequence ot the numerous applications from patients aborning unuer the pulmonary consumption, for leave to inhale the fumes of pitch, in Portsmouth dock- yaid, the honourable Sir G.

A Newspaper once confided to the Post Office, is as sacred, in the eyes of the Postmasters General, as a letter, and it cannot he purloined, tampered with, or abused, without violating the solemn obligation which every person entrusted with the public correspondence is bound by. Although Newspipers do not yield postage, their uninterrupted circulation is immediately connected with the privilege of Parliament, and while they contribute largely to the finances of the coun. try, through another branch of the Revenue, the Starrp Office, tbe Postmasters General are not unmindful that the property thus contributing to the State belongs to individuals whose interest cannot bejnifringed upon w ithout lessening the public Revenue. The Postmaiters General therefore desire from henceforth— " ISt.— That where a Postmaster, on opening his mail, shall find that any Paper which he thinks should have reached his Office, has not arrived, he will, by letter, acquaint the Secretary with ttie circumstance, and the name of the Subscriber whtise Paper may appear to b « missing.

Such a practice, w hile it must add to, if not creare the very evil complained of, affords the same advantages with Subscribers lo Persons who thereby contribute nothing either to the Post Office, the Stamp Office, or the Editor Deputy Postmasters must not be agents in acts which have a direct tendency to injure one branch of the public Revenue, and by curtailing the circulation of Newspapers, interfere with the interest of the Press.

BOROUGH REFORM— We are informed, that the Agent ofthe town of Montrose has received intimation Irom I. rinilon, that the proceedings, under the report of Montrose poll warrant, bad been approved of by the Prince Regent, iii the Council held at Brighton, on Thursday se'ennight. We understand that the Incorporation of Cordineis', Edinburgh, on Wednesday voted twenty guineas towards defraying the expense of the process presently depending before the Court of Session, for setting aside the last election of the Magistrates and Town Council. The Incorporation re peated their resolution not to incur any general responsibility for the expenses that might, be incurred in prosecuting that object. The Society of Barbers of Edinburgh have voted L. 25 from their funds, ler the purpose of carrying on the proceedings now in progress in regaid to the reform of the burph. The M agistrates and Town Council of Dumfries have agreed to . in alteration in the set of that burgh, and meetings ofthe Trades and Burgesses are to be called to take the same into consideration. The Magistrates and Town Council of Ayr have returned an answer to the petition presented by the Burgesses, craving their co- operation iri an applioation lor a new Set. In this answer, the Magistrates and Council decline coming to a hasty and final decision, on a matter which they consider so vitally important as to require consultation with the other Boroughs, as well as mature and de'ibeiate consiaeration, and'the principal reasons they assign for this aie, that neither the ftancbise nor credit ofthe Borough is lost, and that, iti place of any imputation being on their management, their conduct, and that of their predecessors, for a number of years past, is highly spptoven e l e v e n by the petitioners them- Riga At Paris, the H « n.

SHOEMAKING— Tbe dispute between the masters and workmen at Ayr has produced the following statement.:— Journeymen have been paid for working gentlemen's bespoke shoes from to 2s. 6d. a- pair; the average of these wages is, consequently, 2.-. 3d., from which however there falls to be deducted 2,1. a- pair for furnishing, and thus a balance ot 2s. Id. is left. A steady workman will make six pair a week, which will yield him 12s. 6d. s but the greater part of workmen will scarcely make five pair, which, of course, at the same rate, produce only 10s. 5.1.— This work, to complete it, will require on an average 14- hours a dav.

In that state, of confusion he wandered in search of some known object from which he might direct his future steps. Chance atlast bicught the lost shepherd within sight ol what he supposed to be a very large mansion, which he did not remember ever to have seen before ; but on his entering tbe visionary castle to inquire his way home, he found it inhabited by his family. It was nothing mo e than his own cottage. But bis organ of sight had so far misled his mental faculties, that some time elapsed before he could be convinced tbat he saw real objects. Instances of the same kind of illusion; though » ot to the same degie?, aie not unfrequent in those mountanious regions. From these effects of vision it is evident that the pupil and the picture ol an object within the eye, increase at the same time. T H E PRINCESS C U A R L O T T U . - H E R Riyal Highness the Pnncess Charlotte sat, a few days previous to her confinement, to Mr Dawe, the portrait painter, fur a full length likeness, which was the last sitting required by the artist t he afterwards took it home with bim, from Claiemont to bis house in London, to give it the necessary finishing touches. After the lamentable decease of the Princess, and when her coipse Was soldered down, Prince Leopold sent a carriage from Claremont to Mr Dawe's house in London, with directions to bring tbe picture to him without any delay, whether it was finished or not, which was of course complied with. His Serene Highness has since kept it under lock and key, in his own piivate room, where he constantly si: s. It is a fact but little known, lhat the lamented Piincess Charlotte cortespondeil every fortnight with PI ince Leopold, until the day of her marriage. Foe epistolary communications commenced from the time of the meeting ot the parties in the Pulteney Hotel, where they were introduced to each otber by the Duchess of Oldenburg. We btlieve we may assert wiih confidence that the retirement of the Duke of York from the office of Commander in Chief has never been contemplated, and that, of course, no arrangements on the subject were ever suggested or thought of.— Cow. On reading the order of Ceremonies to be observed by the Court of the Governoi- General of India, an anecdote presents itself that has been told some months since, which shews how natuie prevails over ceremony, and is examplified by the Countess of Loudon herself. It is told that on oneoftliese state occasions, when her Ladyship was walking to her seat, her pages holding her train, & c. she happened to observe two young Scottish officers who had been her playmates in her childhood, and who were of the same clan, waiting the arrival ot the Countess to be presented in due order. With a sudden impulse ol joy and surprise, she bounded towards them, seizing a hand of each, gave them a laeaity shaking, with " How do you do, Jock ? How do you do, Bill ?" DELIVERY OF NEWSPAPERS, We are happy to inform our subscribers that measures ate in piogress to insure the sate delivery of their papers in the country. By the annexed official document, they will perceive that the Postmasters General view the offence, of which there is such gicat reason to complain, in its proper light, and that offenders in this respect cannot hope, in future, to escape with impunity. The document in all its hearings is highly creditable to the General Post Office Establishment:— To all Surveyors and Deputy Postmasters.

FRENCH Papers have been leceived to the 3i ; nst. The only subject cf any consequence which they contain, is the prnjet ofa new law for recruiting the army, brought forward by the Minister a; War, Gouvion St Cyr. In the speech, with which the projet was introduced, seme allusion is again made to the hard terms imposed upon France by the Allies ; but though the general tenor of it is a sufficient proof that, on this subject, much dissatisfaction exists in Fiance, the speech itself advances few sentiments from which a probable conjecture can be formed with regard to the real t bject of the present measure. This much is certain, that with a population anxiously desirous of war, no Goranment, however peaceably disposed, can long remain on amicable terms with its neighbours; and France, humbled as she confessedly has been, stilt possesses the means, as well as the inclination, of rekindling t ie flames of war, and producing a- fresh all the direful calamities from which Europe has scarcely yet emerged. The present projet, therefore, which it seems is to be enforced by conscription, cannot b-- too narrowly watched by the Allied Powers. According to the reports brought by the Dutch Mails, the Army of Occupation is to be reduced next Spring, by withdrawing the contingents of the smaller States ; and the arrears of the contributions, it is added, are to be remitted, in order to enable France to fit out an expedition to re- conquer St Domingo. The latter report, we need scarcely remaik, is entitled to no credit. The dispute between the King of the Netherlands and his son is said to be re- adjusted; and the dismissal of Count Gel z, the Commissary General of War, is stated to be one of the first consequences of their reconciliation. This might have been expected ; it is only in a free government, like eur own, that the political intrigues ol a prince can be safely opposed by an upright and conscientious minister. Some additional intelligence has been received respecting the destination of the Algerine Squadron, which created so much well- founded alarm in thi? Spanish Government. The Prussian Consul at Antwerp, has given notice that an Algerine Squadron, having the plague on board, was seen on the 20th of October, off'Cape St Vincent, steerino- towards the north, in quest of Prussian vessels. If this information be true, and there seems no reason to doubt its correctness, this formidable Squadron . may ere long make its appearance ia the Biitish Chan, nel, or even in the North Sea, The disturbances in India, according to the la. test intelligence from that quarter, were neaily suppressed. Advices from Madras to the 24th of June mention that the insurrection in Cuttack appeared to have been finally quelled, by the prompt and decisive measures adopted by Gener. il Martindell ; and though the Piodarees still maintained a sort of predatory warfate, not a doubt was entertained, that in a shoit time, tranquillity would be le- established throughout the whole of the Company's possessions. Some discussion has taken place with regard to the propriety of the Duke of Yoik being continued in the office of Commander in Chief, now that his Royal Highness, by the death of the Princess Charlotte, has become presumptive heir to the Crown. On this subject the London papers give very opposite statements : A Morning Paper asserts, that in consequence of a good deal of discussion in a high quaiter with icspect to the constitutionality of the continuance of his Royal Highness in office, it was undeistood that ' he Duke had tendered his resignation, but thai it had not betn accepted ; while fhe Courier affirms, that there is net the sraaUest foundation for such a report; add Shg, that thOtlgh such a step as the ofle alluded to would have been absolutely indispensible on the pai t . of the Heir- Appaient, it is by no rtteans necessary in the in the case of the Heir- presumptive, who is equally responsible for his conduct in office, as any other of his Majesty's subjects. A meeting of the Noblemen, Gentlerrteh, Freeholders, Commissioners of Supply and Justices of P- nce, of this county, convened here, in the Sheriff O u i t Room, on Tuesday, in consequence of Adverti etllcnts irt the Newspapers, to consider the propriety ot presenting an AubRESS 0? CONDO JLENCE, to his Royal Highness the PRINCE RE < I;-. VT, on occasion of the lamented demitC o f t he Princess Charlotte of Wales,— His Grace the Duke of Atholl in the Chair. After explaining to the meeting the purpose for which it had been called, and expressing, in a very feeling manner, his regret for the melancholy event, Svhich had involved the rtation in deep and universal affliction, His Grace produced to the meeting the draft of an Address ot Condolence to his Royal Highness on this lamented occasion ; which be ing read, and seconded by the Right Hon. the Earl ot Kinnoul, was unanimously adopted-, Si' A l e x . Muir Mackenzie then produced the dralt of an Address of Condolence to his Serene Highness tbe Prince of Cobourg, which being lead, and seconded by General Campbell of Monzie, was also unanimously adopted by " the meeting. The meeting was then dissolved, without discussing any oihcr business. THE PLANETS.— Only three cf the Planets are, at present, visible: Venus in the morning, and Mars and Saturn fh the evening. Venus, which has been lor soiiie- time the Morning Star,, makes her appearance about a quarter past 6 A. M., in the S. E. by E., and continues to shine with great brilliancy, till she gradually vanishes before the increasing splendour of the sun's r a y . Mars tisesinthe N. E. about 3 o'clock in the afternoon, and crosses the meridian about midnight. This planet is ot a reddish appearance, and . shines at present w( ih_ conciderable biightness during the whole night. Saturn, which is nearly TOO times as- large as both Mars and Venus togethei, but seems smaller than eitl er on account of his vast distance, rises in the E. S. E. a few minutes past noon, and crosses the meridian about 5 P. M. at a small elevation above the hoiizon. This planet, which is distinguished from all the other planetary bodies by being suirounded by a double concentric ring, may be iecognized by the taint but steady light with which he shines, compared with that of the iixc- d SUis. Mercury, Jupiter, and the Georgium Sidus, are, at present, invisible, being Ion in the rays of the Sun, with which the thiee are now nearly in conjunction. Last night the minimum temperature, according to a self- registering thermometer, was 2 2 ° , or 10° below the freezing point. It wiil probably be lower to- night. Andrew's- mas market was this day held in the North Inch. There was a considerable show ot cattle ; and fat, as well as good lean stock sold readily, and biought good prices j inferior met with a dull sale. The number of horses was perhaps less th„ n on former occasions, especially those of a good quality ; good horses, however, were in demand, and higher than formerly ; a great number of an inferior description remained unsold. Cheesefrom 5 to 6 shillings and butter from 17 to 19 shillings, a- stone. This day a parcel, containing a quantity of blue cloth and some small articles, was canied off from the Shop of Mr Peter Maxwell, High Street, by some persons who entered the shop unobserved. T h e cloth had been purchased by a country man. We hear that the Duke of Saxe Gutha Prince OscAr of Sweden, Rev. D r Irvine of Little Dunkcld, and Rev.

" jt is an honour for a man to cease from strife: But every fool will be meddling." M R E D I T O R , — - A S you may judge by my now writing to you ol the advantage 1 have received by reading the ubove, I have at present to- request you will recommend tiie consideration of it to your very classical and critical Correspondent A. ; at same time letting him know thai } ie is not desired to lay before the public his lucubrations, but keep them for his own meditation and benefit! as from the specimen he already his given of his talent', the seldomer he appears in your columns, the more it will be for his own credit. And if he is not better quali. fled for any employment, he at present is engaged in, than he is for letter- writing, it may be advisable for him to apply to the awl, or the shuttle, unless engaged Uith one or other-. already. He seems to think that a Subscriber to the Coffee- room should not be allowed to thrust his be.. k forward ; but with all due deference to A.' s judgment, the Subscriber, makes the best appearance of the two, and in my opinion, it will be prudent in A. n « t to risque his own beak in matters with which he has nothing to do, aud in which he ought not to appear. Should Ibe inclined, at any after p - iod, to trouble ysu with my correspondence, I reserve to myself the liberty of deviating Irom the spirit of any motto I cliuse to prefix, or even the liberty of makitijj the conclusion of my letter quite belie any profession I make at the commencement, as some other of your correspondents tike the liberty of doing, B. rather show by such tiutiry inflated language that he olily i conceals the penury of hit Ideas. This much from his own record ; and if your readers cannot discover him from it, let them leok around for some half scholar, fuii of conceit, but void of discretion, and if they ftod such a one, lhal is the author of thfe apology for duelling and posting. No regard is due to the teport that he is a limb of the Church— that is utterly fal- e— for he must know no more of religion than a Hottentot, who can call the man " innocent and inoffendmg," who eagerly desires an opportunity of shedding tbe blood of his brother, and then call him a coward, no gentleman, or worse, for refusing him this gratification. Were Mr A. as Well acquainted with the spirit tif a book, which ( whoever he be) he ought to revere, or even with classical authorities, as he affects to be with the^ modern laws of honour, he would be ashamed to lilt his. face or his pen in defence of duelling and posting, or to palliate tbe practice by terming it a " painful nlternatjo''. ' He sneers at a A S U B S C K I B E R V S being a reformer; - butt it strongly appears irom his own record, tbat his " cthle of honour," and his moral ancl religious principles staiid as much in need of reform as the set of our ancient bo lough 1 am, & c. ' "'' A Subscriber to the Coffee Room." Peath, 10th Dec. 1817. Sm,— That those who set at defiance the laws of God end nun, have but little title to respect in society, is a proposition, I think you will as readily admit, ;. s any of those propounded by your correspondent A, iu your hit number, in ih* commencement of his attack on " A Subscriber to the Coffec- r « om," for so « ie remarks on duelling and posting. Had it been apprehended that tbe particular cases which excited these remarks were to be the subject of any » lher investigation, no notice would have been taken of them farther than what related to posting in the Coffeeroom. If such placards are obtruded upon the Subscribers who rent that room for very different purposes;— placards, contrary to good morals and sub versive of the peace and order of society, each of them has a right, and it is his duty to stigmatize them. The author of these remarks must therefore be excused from coming lorward ol) the call ol Mr A. to beg forgivenness f i r them. But who is this Mr A- that'calls out to " A Subscriber" to beg forgivcttncss,— who knight- errant like, volunteers himself an apologist for duelling and posting, and • who i n s t e a d t. r answering observations on these barbarous practices, disclaims with so much sound and fury against the author, and attempts to describe liirn by his habits and professions ? Surely there is no better way of diictinrnaling him than to fallow his own example, and to annalize the feature, he gives you of himself. Observe, then, his affected abhorrence o f " low diction and stile," which but for " peculiar circumstances he would be ashamed to reply to;" of course, mark his pretensions to a perfect classical itandird ; his profound discovery of Hermand Boat being an impostor; the " gratuitous eminently charitable purpose" with which he misstates some circumstances, and magnifies others; hit devotion to the " Code of Honour;" his woudcrf. il knowledge of the powers of numbers, by which he finds one sentiment to be " ten thousand times better" than another; his " highly edifying indignation," and otber « ' crudities," and " rhapsodies," with w hich" he thrusts in his beak." and makes himself a party " in gross viol a t i o n of the rides of propriety and decorum;"— all to jtoYi; his correct taste and classical composition, but which Many of the observations in the following letter, we have no doubt, will give offence to several' individuals, whose private characters we respects, and whose feelings it is far from our wish to injure f i ut as the subject of discussion ia one winch, seems very intimately connected with the interests ot the rising generation of this city,, and is therefoie a fair object of public animadversion, \ Ve have hien in duced to give it a place- in but columns, with the lull resolution of affording those who may consider themselves aggrieved by an opportunity of vindicating their . opinions, atsd intentions through the same channel. Strictures OK Takariinde • Indepcndene'j. Ma EDITOR,— I latefy " observe!) a law ca* e iii an English i " . vspaper", " Tile King u. James Willi. uYis; Printer at Po ea," for printing what Was there designed, " a prol and scandalous I'lDel, tending to bring into ridicule a.,.. contempt, a part of the Divine Service of the Church of England." There it was pled that the form of public Worship in the national church being settled by. law, is part of the law of the latld, and that such 4 publication disseminated aiiioiig tbe lower ranks, especially uf the rising generation,- must necessarily weaken a due respect and reverence for ihe' national litar. y and creed. The decision was, that Williams be imprisoned during 8 calendar months, pay a fine of 100/; to the King, and find securities himself for 3bC/., with 2 sureties lor ISO/, each, to be of good behaviour for 5 years. Whether " a Catechism on the constitution and ordinances of the Kingdom of Christ, by William Orme, 2d edition, enlarged, and printed for James Kobertson, 7, Parliament Square, Edinburgh," be of the description to incur such pains of law, I am not lawyer enru^ b to determine; but it appears to me to be as cold- blooded and deliberate an attack upon tlie constitution and older cf the Presbyteiiaii Church of Scotland, as by Lv> established, as the Parody printed by Willianis can be upon the Litany of the Church of England.' Being a " Catechism," the youth of the nation ia evidently the object ot it, and verily as- ured, that it will be as extensively circulated by the party as they can, its manifest design is to prepossess the minds " ofthe rising generation" against the Presbyrerian constitution, and order ol tbe New Testament Church, in our happy land. Besides, by throwing such a topic into'a'Catechetical form,- au< T'quoting scripture so liberally, as it' the authorities from hence for their scheme were unquestionable, the low cr3f't of the policy cannot be mistaken, and tb. t is to inveigle the frank and generous feelings and affections of the' rising yeiuh, in fsvoiu of Tabernacle independency, at that period ol iife when the mind 16 very unfit to decide whether the, e appeals to Scripture in support of his positions be conformable to the mind of the spirit speaking to the churches, or not ? And should the trick succeed to a sufficient extent, down goes Presbytery, to the clevat. on of the levelling system ol llle " Community of the Faithful." It is not my pre en: intention to dip into the merits of the production. But looking i* to page 9 oi the ' Ai edition, the history of the party formed in tny muida very curious contrast to the description of the Kingdom of Christ, by this Catechist, asnot of this world. " It is not supported," or promoted, says he, by -' worldly measures." This remark just enough ill the abstract, is at once a severe cen ure, and very aukward exposure of his own connection in its rise and " progress, as rather bare of practical evidence of this characteristic of his spiritual church. An appeal to its history during tbe few years of its existence, will manifest as much bf the policy of thii world, or what the Apostle Paul calls " flesh'y wisdom," in the " measures" of these regenerated and rightly otter- . aiued members of church fellowship, to promote their cheme, and gain proselytes, ' as can be laid to the charge of any religious party among its, not excepting that corrupted coal? lion of our Presbyterian establishment, which seems so sorely to vex his upright and utidesi'gning spirit Al the outsctj of the Tabernacle business, when uncertain how it wa. to c une on, it was judged a safe and prudent precaution, to leave independency lor the present, ul concealment in the back ground, and propose nothing to tbe public, but what was sure to ob'ain their approbatioii; namely, au ardent zeal for evangelical doctrine, and a melting compassion for the touts,')! men, perishing in thousands, under corrupt and erroneous teachers. They accordingly iii the 2d and regulations, delivered to their itinerant preachers and Carechists, restrict them from shewing4* a preference to any denomination ol Christians, either established, or dissenting-, but to exhort the people to attend wherever the gospel is preached in purity, and to endeavour to strengthen the h,. nds of all faithful ministers of JesU3 Christ, of whatever denomination !" What a well dressed bait for the public was this? And who would have supposed that in the lapse of a few years, a Catechism, asserted by its composer, 11 to contain a fair and candid statement of the views generally held by these societies," would have proceeded from that quarter, denouncing all coalition of Churth and State, to be an execrable iunb of antichrist ? What a contrast between the imposing smoothness ofthe outset, and the disclosure of the real plot, when, through tbe increase of their membti's, tbey suppose they can with safety avow themselves ! It was not long, accordingly, till the original ground was shifted. Instead of continuing to labour in the remoter parishes, and other parts of the country where they were ascertained th it ihe Gospel was not preached, and where the^ eople were destroyed for lack oi knowledge, they soon cast their eyes on the warmer and better cultivated spots of the vineyard, where evangelical labourers . in abundance, am' -. lely f w W and appointed to their w. nk, weie attending their charge in conformity to their master's orders. There they pitched their tents, invaded the field of operation by the regular servants and dressers, and, by the forced production, of hot beds, raised the exotic plant of independency, and recommended it with all their zeal to the people, as of greatest renown ; although, according to the most approved judges in Spiritual Gardening, it ought to be rooted out as a spurious plant, which our Heavenly Father hath not planted. What but " worldly measures" characterise this obtrusion, so contrary to the original pretensions ? An order of men, who have devoted 14 or 16; cars ofthe sweetest and most precious period of human life to preparatory stutlies for the ministry; and who, by a scriptural call and ordination, have entered upon the labours of that sacred function, will certainly be considered by people of correct thinking and of scriptural devotion, as an eminent blessing to the church, and the honour of their country. Aud who but fools or emhssiaits would not prefer the ministrations of such to the crude effusions of the tailor who has thrown aside hit needle and thimble, of the shoemaker who has dropt hi* last, of the weaver who has deserted his shuttle, cr the wright who has cut his fingers, and taken up the trade ot preaching, in a great measure, al their own handt, frequently within as many months as the former have studied years f The obstacle was real, and tbe objection formidable ; but if a worldly measure shall support or promote their pretensions here, tbe end is too important to any way ceremonious about the means. These holy and reverend mechanics embark with all their zeal to render a regularly bred and duly ordained minister as contemptible as possible. It was asserted with great confidence, that all men have a right to preach the gospel, j if they have gifts for it; and considerable care was taken ' to have tbe point ef possessing the gifts cr net left iu a great measure to the pos-. cssor to decide. Th us, in place o! the original object ot this party, to " strengthen the hands ol all faithiul ministers of Jesus Christ," these untutored mechanics turned preachers, ill so irregularly invading the office of the priesthood, are at all due pains, to infuse into thy minds of their followers, a sovereign contempt of a regularly bred and ordained ministry, and thereby made- lit. their endeavour to destroy the usefulness ot that orflinsnce of heaven, as far as their influence . could extend. And this is a kingdom not of this world, because neither supported nor promoted by worldly measures! ! It has been another part of their pblicy, to collect as many of the youth'ioto Sabbath Evening Schools as pos sible, always taking care to have them as generally under the superiiitendaiict of Tabernacle people, as their activity and addreso could accomplish. Tbus of late a society for promoting Sabbath Evening Schools, both in the city and through the extensive and populous county ol Perth, has been formed, with a clergyman of the church of Scotland as its patron ; and presbyteiian mini- • sters not in the church, occupying subordinate appointments. But is it not a fact, that 111 the operation of this short lived institution, a large proportion ol the Tabernacle Independents have wormetl themselves into the charge ol the youth in these schools ? Nay, if report be true, a tabernacle teacher or teachers have been bold enough to reiuse to exercise the youth in the Assembly's Shorter Catechism ; and yet, as a proof of the ascendency of the party, he his been continued in the important station of a teacher. In prosecution of the same policy, things thus matured to favour its extensive circulation among the youth, out pops this redoutable Catccllism, doubtless as a valuable substitute of the Assembly's shorter one, il riot in the schools, at least in the families, from whence the scholars are sent, as widely as the circulation can be ; ressed. By such " worldly measures" of craft, of consummate and dextrous management of times and occurrences, and of suppleness of pretensions, ill . lulling their ground with the quickness and motion of a drill- serjeant, when a new position is judged preferable, has this scheme beeu hitherto supported and promoted. These are. facts too, stubborn to be controverted ; too glaring a contradiction of this Catechist's description of his spiritual kingdom ot holy self denied brethren. Would he therefore take the hint, it might be wise in him, in connecting and curtailing lor his 3d edition, to suppress this 1- st cliUse, and perhaps a little more, as safest for the credit of his party, till tbey get a little better round, in practising tbe selfdenial and spirituality of the kingdom of Jesus Christ, to which there is reason to " dread, that they are rather too presumptuous in their pretensions. Silly and weak in the extreme as tbe production is generally accounted, except by the party, and though it may and will unquestionably sink under its own weight, ic is notwithstanding calculated to do considerable mis chief in tlie meantime to the young and uninformed, far whose seduction it is evidently prepared. Is it not wise and benevolent then, speedily to adopt such precautions as shall counteract the trick designed to be played upon them? Parents and others entrusted with tbe education of youth, cannot surely be too " atterrive to the character and tbe principles of the teachers to whose care they commit them. Is it rot time for Presbyterians to take the hint, and by prompt and decisive measures, ctninteract the invidious attempt ?— It is too manifest that Presbyterian antl civil establishments of the true religion are sucb marked objects of the hostility of tabernacle independents, that co- operation wttii them, npon general principles, is ultogei her impracticable, if the purposes of self, and the interests cf their niotely and unscriptural scheme can be served by tbem. While, therefore, 1 am a warm advocate for Sabbath Evening Schools, for the religious education of youth otherwise neglected, if these schools be properly guarded against tbe attempts of designing men, I cannot help wishing it as a pi blic good in the issue, that the partnership of the county firm were dissolved as soon as possible, when it now appears what unworthy advantages have been taken of it, by the deceitful and imposing arts of some ol the partners ; and should an immediate dissolution not take place, that every Presbyterian parent, and others having tiie care of youth, withdraw tbem immediately from the Sabbath Evening Schools conducted by Anabaptists and Tabetnacle independents, be roused into a becoming zeal for their religious principles, when thus bluntly and ignorantly attacked, and resent with a firm auo spirited indignation, the crafty and sneaking maiiceuvre attempted by mean? of this Catechism, Silly as it u » <| « « .- ttooa%: y is, and althoti^ fc the pretensions of independency h ive been advanced tell thousand times to better purpose St fore this Catechist was born, and most triumphantly Powered too, yet a due portion of wholesome chastisement by some able pen might serve several good purposes. It would rescue the points in dispu- e from tbe deforming rubbish which the untutored Tabernacle independents have laboured so uuwtjariedly to heap upon them. Truth, in support uf Presbytery, would appear in its native vigour and evidence. Many, staggered by the attempts of seduction, would be satisfied, recovered, and established. And by means of a liberal puncturing, skilfully applied, the patients labouring tit present under the dangerous symproms of a progressive smelling in their vanity, may be happily relieved, and thus be recovered to a li- tle more modesty and diffidence, when the nakedness of their scheme is forced upon them, by a calm, judicious application of the word of God, in exp ising the unscriptnral nature of the peculiar tenets of the party, as they are detailed in this Catechism. Should you honour me by giving these lucubrations a place in your paper, I may perhaps trouble you again with a humble attempt to set this Catechist right, by . hewing that his scheme of Congregational Churches, in other words. Independency, has not the sanction of Chri-. t and his Apostles, if the language of inspiration be correctly understood. 1 am, & c. A P R E S B Y T E R I A N. Perth, 10th Dec. 1817.

FRANCFORT, NOV. . 0 0 The Sovereign Princes of Hohenzellern, Ltchtenstein, Reuss, Schaumbourg- Lippe, Lippe and Waldeck, have acceded to the H o l y Alliance, at the invitation ot the Em. pei or of Austria— C o u r i e r. The P/ ank ot England has again given notice, that the Three Shilling and One and Sixpence Tokens - will not pas3 nor be exchanged alter the 25tr> March next. than from 4 to 500,0C0/. But this disaster was not the only one ; for, on t h e - 2 1 s t of the said month, another tire broke out, and burnt a great part ot'tjie western half of the town, which had served as a shelter for the houseless sufferers of the first conflagration. We sincerely deplore these awful calamities, and hope some means may he devised to relieve the hapless viet i i n s - o f them. His E x c e l l e n c y Vice- Admiral Piekmore, very properly issued a proclamation, prohibiting the exportation of all provisions, till it should be ascertained what supply would be necessary to prevent the Colony from experiencing the additional misfortune ot' a scarcity. We regret to add, that private letters from N e w - foundland attribute these fires to the diabolical conduct of incendiaries. The following letter contains some particulars of this disastrous event : — " T O R B A Y , Dec. 5.—- Arrived the schooner Rover, Captain Bywden, from St John's, Newfoundland, in 2 0 days ; landed several passengers, who report, that on Friday, 7th November, about nine o'clock at night, a fire took place ( supposed to be tile woik ot incendiaries) between the Upper and Lower King's Wharfs, St John's, which continued with dreadful fury, until eight the next morning, having destroyed all the houses, wharfs, stores, fish, tkc. and was not entirely got under for several successive days. All the shipping lying at or near the wharfs began to take in the stores as fast as they could be sived, and then hauld off, and little or no damage happened to the vessels.

It was- on i h e 7th ult. that the first of these occurred ; and the devastation which ensued is described as most afflicting. A of ground, e x t e n d i n g nearly a ately laid on all shipping, and no boat or vessel suf fered to leave the harbour for one week. Among the numerous stores, wh. ufs, See. destroyed, the d. veiling. house, wbaifs, & c. of Mr Hunter; all the stores, & c. of Messrs Atwood and llaynes ( the largest concern in St John's) ; all the stores, wharfs, See. of Mr Tremlett; all the gaol and courthouse, with post- office, & c . ; ail the stores, See. of Hait and Robertson ; all the stores of Bu^ ley and Job ( the north side) ; and all Mac Brier's; and hundteds of other houses', shops, & c. with about 3 0 , 0 0 0 quintals of fish. To give a just desciiption ot this dreadful fire, the passengers 6tate to be impossible. The general distress now prevailing, with the loss of so many thousand bags ot bread, barrels o f p o i k , See. is heart- rending, 3 0 0 families at least, left without house or home, or common necessaries of life ; people hiring vessels and flocking away to Halifax, and other ports in America, every day. The schooner Pike is sent home with the dispatches by Admiral Pickmore, and no doubt, ere this reaches you, will have ariived in some port of Englamd. We have received N e w York and other Ame vican Papers to the 14- th uit. The rumour of f i e cession of E; i. st Florida to the United Slates is declared to be altogether premature. One of the rumours of t h e day is, that the Commissioners appointed to proceed to South America will have instructions to acknowledge some of the newly, formed republics in that quarter. A general Thanksgiving has t a k e n place throughout and happiness o f t h e American people. A dread ftil fever prevails at N a t c h e z , Virginia, two- thirds of tiie inhabitants l i a i e left tiie place, and there are not enough remaining to attend the sick and bury the dead, The only recent intelligence from Amelia Island, represents the same scene ot confusion.— Broils, and contentions, respecting the division of the plunder, still continue aliiongst tiiese self- styled Generals of Divisions, Lord H i g h Admirals, & c. There is no news Irom the Caraccas. Late i n t e l l i g e n c e had b e en received from Buenos Ayres and Chili. At a late hour this morning we icceived a Flanders Mail, fiom which we give the following important extract : — " BRUSSELS, Dec. 2 All the doubts which still subsisted, ' especttng the retirement of his Royal Highness the Prince ot Otange, trom his military employments, have now ceased ; it is no longer doubtful that the Prince has demanded his discharge, and that, by a Decree of his Majesty, of the 15th November, it has been accepted."— Oracle, Dec. 3. ' 1 he Papers o f t h e S; h contain intelligence, to the 3J August. The news appear to come through the Channel of tbe Insurgents, and is, of course, t ) be received with great caution. It is represented that the Royal force, under the command of General la Serna, which had taken possession of Saltaand Jupuy, was put to flight the Sth of May, a id tell back on Potosi. Tbis evacuation of a province which consitutes the only magazine of Peru, h is been effected by the constant and bloody attacks of the Guerillas and the Militia of the Insurgent Governor Guemes, assisted by Colonel La Madrid, who, with Ins flying troops, is stated to have fallen upon the rear e i the Royal Army, and occupied ' 1 atiffa,. making the garrison ( 4 0 0 veterans) prisoners. On the eastern shore of the Plate, the insurgent General Artig. is, is represented to have had three different^ engagemcnts with the Portuguese troops, and, of course, he was always successful. A vessel with military stores, going to supply his troops with muskets, Sic. had been captuied, and had artired at Montevideo. The American Papers state, that considerable damage had been done at Chailestou and our West India Islands, by strong gales towards the end of Sept. Charleston continued exceedingly ur. healthty. Spain appears to maintain strictly her territory in the Florida? from encroachments by the United States. A letter dated St Louis, Missouri, 27th Sept. mentions, that a detachment of American riflemen had been sent to protect American subjects- From the Spirit of the Captain, no dcubt was enteitained that the Spaniards would have to submit. A Petition is in circulation in the Missouri territory, praying to be admitted into the Union on the footing ot the other States. E L S I N O R E , NOV. 22.— Captain Simpson, of the sloop Stella, which is ariived here, states, that when he left Cronstadt, on the 14th of this month, the trost had set in with such severity that no more vessels could put to tea.
