Accounts from Carlsruhe state, that Prince Paul of Wirtemberg is about to be divorced from his consort, to - whom he has beeu mar- ried 13 years. The children will, it is said, T> e placed under the care of the Queen Dow- ager. IS o cause is assigned for this measure. The Hector of Hesse Cassel has approved of the resolution of the synod for uniting the Lutheran and reformed religions throughout his dominions. The people on the Trench frontier still talk of the approaching removal of. the whole allied army, which they now consider very probable, because 600 British troops have recently beeu w ithdrawn, with- out their place* being iilkd up. A Flanders mail, with papers to the 8th Instaut, has been received.— They state that the Duke of Welli gton is expected to return toCambray 011 the 15th instant— It is represented, as a matter beyond all doubt, that the Army of Occupation will quit France in October next. Hut if this point, the only one which the Allied Sovereigns were to discuss at Aix- la- Chnpelle, has beeh • already determined, for what purpose afe they to meet there ? It appears certain, that the Allied Sover- eigns', before they meet at Aix- la- Chapelle, will review their troops in France, from the • Upper Rhin to Maubeuge; it is stated, that the DuLtiof Wellington will accompany th m to these reviews, which will le extremely brilliant. New York papers to the l4th, aiid Bos- ton to the Kith ult. have been received, from • which the following are extracts :— Charleston, July 3.— Captain B'atcsou, of the. sloop Floric who arrived here this morn- ing, left St. Augustine yesterday. He in- forms us, that a Spanish corvette, of 26 guns, ail Hermaphrodite brig, of 18 guns, and a brig, of 20 guns, arrived off that place on Sunday last, in a short passage from the Havatmah, under convoy of the schooner Bararita and Santa Rosa, loaded with am munitions of war, clothing, provisions, and about 30,000 dollars ( in doubloons,) for the use aud pay of the soldiers at that port.— The vessels of war sailed again on Monday and Tuesday; the schooners were discharg- ing when Captain B. sailed. A large body of Indians, with thpir women and children, were encamped within about five miles of St. Augustine, and a number of thein daily visited the town. The garrison, which amounts to about 400 men, were much elat- ed by this timely supply of clothing, provi- sions, and money, which they had long been looking for. Norfolk, July 8.— We learn from Captain Carrdway, of the sloop Howard and . lames, arrived here yesterday, in 13 day's from Por- to Rico, that a British frigate ( believed La Pique) arrived at Agnadilla on the 18th of June, for the purpose, as was supposed, of examining the harbours and ports of Porto Rico, having previously looked into all tiie ports, bays, and harbours of St. Domingo. Captain C. further states, that contributions have been recently levied on the inhabitants of Porto Bico, lor the purpose of putting the fortifications of th west end of tlie island in a general state of repair ; and consider- able military preparations were manifest in that quarter of the island, the object of w Lick we are left to conjecture. A Gentleman who left St. John's, New- foundland, on the 5th of July, states, that this valuable Colony is making a rapid pro- gress to prosperity. The cod- fishery he re- presents as most abundant.; and the seal- lisjheiy has already produced perhaps be- yond all pr ecedent. Phoenix- like, St. John's is rising with new and improved splendour from the ashes of three conflagrations. The increased breadth of the streets ; the solidity of the ne'w building materials, and other im- provementsof a cautionary nature, will make fires much less frequent, and infinitely less destructive. By the commencement of next fall, not a house will be missed from Saint John's. There is, of course, great demand for building tradesmen; most of thos£ who had passed over from Europe in expectation of employment, had, in despair of suoh pro- mising times, departed for America. The following is an. extract of a letter, dat- ed June 15, from Messrs. Bain and Dun- chee, ofNassant., New Providence, toMessrs Inglis and Co.:—" We have a reportin cir- culation hfere, Which, we fear, is too well founded, that General Jackson, on overpow- ering the Indians in West Florida, caused Mr. A. Arbuthnott, who was fixed there as a harmless trader, and Mr. L. Felix, the master of a vessel of his called the Chance, to lie hung, and the body of the former to be mutilated. Surely, if this turns out to be true, the British Government will not pass it over in silence. We have known Mr. Ar- bnthnott for years, but never, we assureyow, did. we know a more innocent man. You i* v » bson in t} re habit of shipping, through our medium; for some years, the goods made use of by Mr. Arbuthnott in his trade," The Duke of ROXBURGH, who has, for the first time, been elected one of the Six- teen Representatives of the Scottish Peer- age, is the only Scots Duke who is not also a Peer of Great Britain.— ilis Grace is now in the eighty- first year of his age, and his son, the Marquis of BEAUMONT, has just entered into his second ! We have already adverted to the great im- provement of the Revenue for the present year ; and it is truly gratifying to frail that it continues to increase in a most extraordinary, manner. We understand that the four last weeks yield an excess of upwards of eight hundred and fifty thousand pounds, as com- pared, with the likeporiod in 1817.— London Packet.

HUSSEY'S CONFESSION. The Rev. Mr. Rudge's Statement. " A number of contradictory statements hav- ing appeared respecting Hussey's ' confession it has been judged advisealde to give in an au- thentic shape, the whole of what really passed from bis lips in the cell on the morning of bis execution. It must be admitted that the situa- tion in which I was placcd witli respect to this wretched man, was one of great difficulty, and of peculiar delicacy. I had been requested by a number of respectable persons to go down 10 Maidstone. He had himself strongly urged me to see him. 1 was sensible, that if any confes- sion acceptable to the people at large, and sa- tisfactory to tlie inhabitants of Greenwich in particular, could be made, much would depend upon the manner in w hich the uo. versation w as conducted aufl the questions weie put on my part. Thai there was something which burden- ed and troubled his mind, 1 had every reason to conclude, from what I discovered at my first interview with him on the day ( Sunday) p. fetrous to his execution. I w ent, for the first time, accompanied by the chaplain and gaoler of the prison. When the humane and worthy clergyman had concluded the prayers, and read- ing a sermon, be and the gaoler retired, leaving me alone with the prisoner. In the course of a long and interesting Conversation, chiefly on re- ligious topics, I saw enough to give force and strength to/ the conviction; that if lie were not the actual perpetrator of tlrtf horrid deed, he was posses& ed of that which would Le of the utmost importance to have • jominunieated to the pub- lic. I had recourse to every means of persua- sion : I pressed disclosure as a matter of religi- ous duty— as one of personal favor: but they had no avail; and I saw the time was not yet arrived in which I should succeed in carrying mty point One observation w hich be made, iu reference to the murder, was ren arkabjft, and heightened extremely ail fay anxieties On the subject. " What goffd will it do for me to disclose any thing I know of the murder, now I am go- ing to suffer for it. The secret had better die with me. You must not— must not press me further. I am innocent of it!" In the course of this day I was frequently with him, but ill company with the chaplain and g, ol'er. On the Monday morning we settled with him to admi- nister the sacrament of the Lord's Supper at an early hour. On some person con. ing into the cell, and entering into conversation, he told me lie had slept little in the niglit, and that some- thing so troubled Jriui, that lie could not com- pose himself to rest. It had a reference to the sacrament, for which he thought himself not duly prepared, though he said be w as in chari- ty with all men, and had made, he hoped, his peace with that God, before whom he was short- ly to be summoned. I thought it might now be productive of good, if, after having shortly ex- plained the nature, and pressed the importance of this duty enjoined by his dying Saviour, I was to avail myself of the opportunity of urging biin to disclose the Btate of his niiud. i* make a frank confession of any tliiug which either inter- rupted bis peace or trouble^ bis conscience.— The words, as far as I can recollect, iu wliieh I addressed liim, are these: " And now, Hussey, before we communicate and take thissncrament to our comfort, I request you to declare as a dy- ing man, for the satisfaction of tlie public at large, and of the inhabitants of Greenwich in particular, did yon, or did yon not perpetrate this horrid murder! or, if yon did not, do ysu know who did ! Tell me as a matter of per- sonal favor." His answer was, " as God is my judge, and you are my w itness, these uplifted hands were never stained with the blood of Sir. Hird. or his servant." He was now 011 his knees, & giving me a keen and expressi ve look, be add- ed, in a tone scarcely audible— 1 know— but - more presently ! After the sacrament had beeti administered, which was done by the Rev. Mr. Argles with great solemnity, the chaplain and gaoler took their leave, and left me alone with him. AVe were together upwards of an hour. Immedi- ately as the door of the cell was closed, I en- tered into a religious conversation with him— discoursed on the state of the soul after death — on a future judgment, and on such other to- pics as were calculated to affect bis heart, and to produce within him true repentance before God, and faith in the lxird Jesus Christ! I thought that my endeavours seemed to bo now pre- eminently blessed. Hussey himself said that this was the happiest moment be bad yet experienced. 1 seized tbe favourable symptom, for I saw that the heart was disposed td be com- municative. After exhausting almost every other topic of address, I descanted upon the bomfo. rt of possessing a true friend, to ' w hom we couid unbosom our heart, and rfcveal our sorrows.— " You," said lie, " are that friend that I ought to conceal nothing from— I never'can make yotl any return for allyour goodness to me!" " Yes,' Hussey; there's one return which you can, if you will; make; it will be a sufficient reward, tell ftie all yoti know 1"" He ca^ t a look at the door, and listened for a momeiil; and then be- gan to address me in ( he fbtlotring words, ' to which I have strictly adhered, giving the narra- tive, as far as my recollection will enabie me, in the vfety same language in which it wars re- lated. The scene was a melting one; and he was occasionally so agonized, as 10 be obliged to take a little breath, and give vent to the feel- ings with which he was agitated; There w as a moment, indeed, in w hich I almost despaired of his being able to proceed, such w as the difficul- ty he experienced in embodying in language the horrid narrative: Husscy's Confession to Mir. Budge in h is cell. ' All along have I resolved, never even to my dearest relations to divulge the secret, but to let it die with me. Your letter staggered iny resolution, but I got over the difficulty; I am not the murderer, but I planued and instigated the robbery. The Almighty gives me the power to declare tins,- and to say, that in the blood of Mr. Bird, bis servant, or any one else, my hands vtcre never imbt ued. A man of the name of A. with one B.: did it: We had accidentally met in Greenwich, and we became intimate with each other. We had learned that Mr. Bird was very rich, and that he sometimes went to Lou- don to receive large sums of money. It hap- pened the same day as I was silting with A and drinking at the Tiger, we observed him sitting in one of his rooms at a table, whereon was a good deal of gold, and a number of what we thought w ere bank notes. I observed, this would be a fine job. This led' to something further be- ing said, and I - proposed the' robbery, saying let us meet this evening, and we w ill see what can lie done. It happened, however, that no- thing was attempted that night, nor was any thing finally se tled upon, we liot being agreed as to the parts we should take iii the robbery.— We again met— it may be about a week " after — ami my advice was, that we should try that very evening, and that I had provided a ham- mer to open the door with. We went all three about halt- past eleven ; but finding 110 answer was returned toour knocking, and as there was a great many people passing and re - passing, w e became disheartvtied ; and recollecting what my washerwoman had said about Mr. B.' s early hours-, we all Agreed to meet in the park at a certain spot, ami logo from thence to Mr. B.' s house, w hich we accordingly did, between eight and nine of the evening oi" tlie murder; The plan was this:— A. was to knock at the front door, and B. to get over, or break open the side door, and so proceed round to the btick window. While this was doing, A. was to engage the servant in conversation, until such time as be found B. had got in. I understoi d at'lerv, nrds B. had great difficulty in doing it{ hut lie at last did, when A. immediately knocked down and killed the servant with a mallet lie had provid- ed himself with, and B rnshod through the pas- sage and struggled with Mr. Bird, whom he soon done for w ith the hammer I had given him. — While this was going on I was standing out close to tbe Tiger's Head, and was to w histle if I saw any one was corning, which I did tw ice, as there were two persons that- passed ; but as the night was very foggy, rtnd it was a little be- fore eight in tbe evening, they seemed to take no notice of the light of the candle, which tbe servant had in her hand at Mr. Bird's door. I kept watch for about twenty minutes, and think- ing them a long time, nnd that they might be discovered, I crossed the street and gentlytap- ped at the door. No oue answered, nor did I hear any iioise. Thinking'this strange I w ent to the side deor, and tried to get in there, but found it quite fast. I then returned to the front door, but could not open if. I knocked again and w as at last let in. I forgot now by which of the two; but be said, " we W ere at the top of tbe house looking over what we bad found, and you alarmed us !" I went in, and in going up stairs, stumbled over the body of the servant, which we then removed out of our way. I was shocked to learn from them the fate of Mr. Bird and the maid servant; but B. said it could not be helped, as they found them ( aud particular- ly the old man) so resolute. After being in the house about five minutes it was agreed that I should go out, aud in ten minutes after they both came to me. I was then in the middle of the street, nearly opposite to Mr. Bird's house, and it was SO dark that no one Could sec me;— We now w ent into the park, and by tbe light from a dark lantern which A. had brought with him, we began dividing the property, w hicfi was tied up in a sheet. There w as a great many ar- ticles, but the smallest part fell to my lot. They' said, that in the bureau, a great many guineas were found, w hich it was agreed, they should have, and I the bank notes aud wat' het, 8cc. We then separated, and I went and changed myself. When I bad done this. I cahie down privately, aud went lo a pond nearVansittarf's place, where I threw in both the mallet and hammer,- v. bicli had been tied up in my bundle, and which the other two men requested Die to take with me. I met A and B only once or twice afterwards. Their ship was at tbe time of tbe murders about to sail for the Hast Indies, and in going to look after them about, four or live days afterwards. I learned that the ship was gone. This was on the 11 th or 12tli of Februa- ry last." •' The above is. to the best of my recollection,- a correct statement. ( Signed) " J. AMES RUDGK." " Liuieliotsse, 8th August, 1818." Immediately after the execution, the Rev. Mr. Rndge transmitted copies of Hussey's c Ses- sion to Lord Sidmouth and to the other t- ulho- rities, that steps might be taken to as. o ; in how far liis declaration attributing the guilt of murder to others might be telied on;— and, if true, that speedy measures might be adopted. by sending such proper instructions abroad, as would lead to tbe apprehension of the criminals, Tlje names of the two men are not mentioned, as their public designation thus early iriifrht frustrate their seizure. Tbe same praiseworthy motive, w e believe, induced tbe Revs Mr. Rudpe to w ithhold,, for a few days, the above statement from publication. Mr. Smith, ft magistrate at Greenw ich, has assumed to himself theardiioustask of ascertain- ing, by inquiry at the docks, nnd examining Va- rious ships' registers, whether the men named by Hussey, actually sailed from England for the East Indies, or any other destination. short- ly after the murders. We will not undertake to say, what degree of credit is dtie to IlussCy ; but the impression nptni our mind is; that his confession Ought to be received with a proper de- gree of caution.— Observer. B O X I N G. The battle between Painter, and Spring, for 100 guineas a side, and that between Craujey and a Clare- market Butcher, took place on Fri- day last, on the Russia Farm, betw een four and five miles from Kingston, in a 24- feet roped ring. Spring and Painter fought at Micketham Dow ns, 011 tiie lst of April last, and the former Won in an hoar anil a half. Painter it was said at that time bust his shoulder" in tlie early part of the tight, and the time which Spring occu- pied in finishing Itim. showed there w as but lit- tle devil about him. Oil this combat stinging sums of mohey have been lost by thfe very fiach- est of the cognoscenti, as those who backed Spring hefore. backed him again easily at five to two; and Painter's former backers, with few exceptions, w ere brought over to Spring's side. Seconds— Belcher and Harry Harrner for Pain- ter, and Cribb and Clarltfor Spring. THE BATTLE. Round i — Between four and five minutes . were occupied in form and amusement, until Spring made play, but bis left hand was well parried. Painter w as aiming- to get well in at a distance, and having done so, he tnadfe a left- handed feint, and slew out his right hand with the full weight of bis bo. dv, and ' floored' his adversary liy a heavy bit over the left eye, w hich decided ' blood' with the knock down.— Even betting on Painter— 5 to 2 against him. 2— Painter, in great confidence from the stream Of claret v/ hfeh flowed from his adver- sary's eye, made p! ay. and light hits were ex- changed. Both down. Paiuler under. 3— Painter received slightly on the side of the head with his adversary's left hand, and, in closing, both went down. 4— There was no hitting;, but Spring w as Strongest at throw irig. 6— After exchanging counter- hits. Painter got his adversary's'. head locked under his left adn, and' tr caved' with his ri<; M. Spring had too much' experience to stand this, and be seiz- ed Painter's weaving hand,. ti ml having his left, leg pressed against iiis qdt « r$ arjr> s,- hattifc, l'uiu- ter received a severe fail; 6- Thete was more fighting in this round than ill any. preceding it. Several hits w ere planted' on each side, but. Painter's object seemed to be to do well w hat he did perform, that is. to make his adversary feel his right hand. Spring had rather the best of the round, and in striving to give the fall he succeeded. 7tb ayd 8th— No mischief was done, the men were piping and scheming, what in the ring is termed * bellows- mending for more rufitahing operations.' They accommodated each oilier, and went down nicely. 9— Here was some mischief cut out, and the men met manfully , and ' turned to' in earnest. At the close of a smart rally, Spring received a ' chancery' right- banded lugger upon the ear, which brought the claret out, and it was a strong omen of speedy victory— seven to four on Painter. , - 10— Spring got up groggy, and fought his best, but Painter, although bit in the rally, broke ground with much adroitness to get his right hand to work again. He was thrown in a close. 11, 12, 13— There w as but little lighting, but Spring's nob was mortgaged by contusions, al- though he stood manfully to his adversary, and fought game. 14— Spring hod the best of fighting:,' and hit his adversary off'bis legs. To convey the latter part of tbe battle best to the sporting reader, we need not go over the whole of the rounds. as there was much hugging, and but little execution until the 22d round, w hen a rally took place with reciprocal advant- ages. Painter had the best of the round, by- getting his adversary's head under bis arm again, and dropping him when tired of weav- ing. Spring was now much reduced, and his head had suffered severely; but although be fought with much courage and fairness, Painter out- genemlled him, and the latter brought Spring dow n a bit in every round. In round ,11. alter some smart hitting. Spring received Painter's heavy right- hand upon the jaw. . ft waseven bet- ting that he did not come again, but he st- xid up till the 4' 2d round, and his game caused him to be severely punished. lie gave in, not by w ord, but from helplessness, after fighting one hour and tour minutes. REMARKS. Painter fought this battle with much judg- ment, aud he led from the first round. After the detail given, we have only to odd, that lie out- generalied Spring, who has shown himself ap- proved game. Crawley heat tbe Glare- market Butcher in < wo or three felling bits, and he won't want to fight any more. Carter threw up bis hat to fight any man in England. DIVIDENDS.

The departure of the Dukeof W< llingtoii; which took place on Monday, was, it appears, in consequence of previous arrangements in Fntnce, w here he, is expected to arrive ou the Itfth, to commence his reviews of the different c- wps of the Array of Occupation. Lor.! Gastlereag . left town for the Conti- nent' 011 Monday morning, in Lord Stew art's carriage. The Brussels papers state, that bis Lordship and the Duke of Richelieu are expected i; i that city in tho beginning of Sep- tember. ! n that event, it is probable tiiat iiis ' Lordship mean's to visit Paris before he pro- ceeds to Aix- la- Chupelle. . It'is sai - Mr- Ellis, who accompanied L6rd Amherst on bis embassy to China, is to at- tend Lord^ Castlereagh, as his Secretary, to tho Congress. The- squadroh of guard- ships, which sailed from Plyraoath 011 the 5th of June, to cruize, for exercise, two months, separated ou the 6th inst. to r turn to their respective ports. Their cruiziug ground has been between 20 ftrid 40 leagueVs, vv. of Sc%. A more te- dious cruise ( say the Officers generally) was never known'; the squadron was ( ill days without setingland. The Rochefort is to be re- conuuisrioned by Captain A. Green, for the flag of ltoar Admiral Sir T. Freeniantle, in the Mediterranean; and the Vengcur will be re- conunissioned by Captain F, L. Mait- land, for the flag of Rear Admiral VV. Ot- • way.— The RatniUies and Albion, with the Queen Cn. irhnte, it is s; rid, are to be guard- chips at Portsmouth, for the next 3 years. The Lords of the- Admiralty, we understand, vvitha view to save the exp nee of fitting out, have Eesolved to keep the present guard- ^ liips in service. Sir T. B. Martin ( Comptroller of the Navy,) Commissioner Fraser, and Mr. Sur- veyor Sejipings, have arrived at Portsmouth, to make a general inspection of the Dock- yard, the ships inordinary, and of the arti- ficers and workmen employed in the yard, & c. We understand many of the ships ( first rates) which wero supposed to be iu the most sound state, are, found, upon being ripped open, to be extensiv ely affected with the dry rot. , Letters from Naples state, that they have had an e uplion of Mount Vesuvius, which caused some alarm ; but it was of no long Continuance. The thermometer ill the. shade was at 88, which, after w hat we have expe- rienced for the last 70 days in England, we should not consider as extraordinary; but it u mentioned as being unusually high. ' Private communications have been receiv- ed from the West Indies, which mention, that much inconvenience is experienced by the foreign shipping w hich arrives from Mar- tinique, in consequence of recent regulations transmitted front the French Government, ' which are enforced with extraordinary ri- gour. A l itter, dated Port, Royal, the 21st Jane, says-—" A new Collector has arrived at St. Pierre's, from France, with instruc- tions, that as soon as any vessel comes to anchor in this place, a guard of soldiers are sent on board ; and after the Captain lias made entry of his cargo, an Officer takes an account, as it is landed, and if it is not ac- cording to the Captain's manifest, the vessel and cargo are forfeited, or a heavy fine im- posed. This has never been done in the Trench Islands before. They have seized two vessels since my arrival— one will be lost, tlie other will cost tho Master 5000 to git her clear. Private letters from Trinidtd, dated the S2dof June last, state that dispatches had just arrived there from General Morilio, con- taining an account of all the niovenieyts of liis army, and the different actions wbicblie ^ ad had - with the Patriots for the last three Or four months. lie estimates the loss of the Patriots during'this period, in killed, wound- ed, and missing, at 4500. Among the pri- soners there are a number of Europeans— ( most probably English.) He says also that tie has taken a great many cannon, large quantities of muskets, ammunition, baggage, provisions, cattle, mules, Aire, and some spe- cie— that he has recovered all the places of which the Patriots bad lately puss ssedtbem- jielves— and that the remaining' forces of tho latter were retreating towards Angustura, which be entertains strong hopes of reducing in a short time, as it has but few and very weak defences for its protection. General iVIorillo also relates, that Bolivar had been deposed by the Civil Government, or three ' Commissioners whichlie himselfhad appoint- , £> J to preside in that capacity: and the ru- asoor in Trinidad is, that Sir Grerjor M' Grtw jr. v ia going out to succeed Boliear, direct Jbtat. tielgiuw, * ruh a L » rjs, i.' stsgply of war- like Stores, and more volunteers for the . cause. The German Journalists still continue tlieir complaints respecting the iunndation of Their country with British manufactured commodities; and are strenuous iu demand- ing the imposition of heavy duties, and the adoption of a rigid prohibitory system. Extract of a letter from a British Of- er, dated Banks of the Ganges, January 21st, 1818.—" The army is expected in immedi- ately ; - every thing is settled, aud all our pos- sessions in India are rendered more, secure, as The war has given us an opportunity of clipping tho wings of Scindiab and liist.' hiefs, and of burthening them with the subsistence of an additional number of troops. Great praise is due to the Noble Marquis( Hastings) for his exertions in bringing so great a body of troops into tlie field, and regulating them so as at a certain time they all moved upon one spot, and completely hemmed in the In- surgents. Our army was computed at 95,000 men, a greater number of troops than had ever been in the field together in India before. The w hole Continent of Hindostan is now in our possession. There are six ad- dition;.! Sepoy regiments, to be raised imme- diately ; and also each regiment of cavalry is to nave two additional troops, that we may with facility retain our extensive rind important possessions in this quarter of the Globe The Bauk of the United States, it is said, in order to countervail the great demands of silver dollars to supply the East India trade, are sending them to the Mint, to be recoin- ed into halves and quarters, there being a de- nomination of coins not shipped to India. Extract of a private letter, dated Iruu, Tuly 21 :—" During the incertitude of the Government relative to the hostile disposi- tion which the United States have unceas- ingly manifested towards Spain, it appears certain that the fine Squadron which is equip- ping in the port of Cadiz ( composed, of the ships ceded to us by Russia, and such of our own as liave escaped destruction) will not set sail for South AmericamitSThe Government can determine the footing of our relations with North America. This squadron con- sists of eight ships of tlis line, several large frirai. es, and a proportioned number of cor- vettes ; the crews are complete. This force is • luiost wholly armed and equipped, and commanded by the best naval officers of the country." Hwerpool.— This town has already d istTnguish- ed itself by its loyal principles; and it is with pleasure we learn that between 1.5 and 20,000 copies of Mr. Canning's particular speech at the Election Dinner have been distributed in all important towns, for the purpose of counte- racting the evil designs ofthe wicked and mis- chievous. A True BlueCliib hns been establish- ed, which already reckons above 240 members of the greatest respectability, and which num- ber will very soon be materially increased. The staunch principle of this Club is to support the Kinfr, Constitution, and Government. The lirst graml dinner is appointed to take place on the Regent's Birth- day. The trade of Liverpool is now in the most prosperous state of progression. The docks are thronged with vessels, shipping and unshipping the produce of every quarter of the world. The business of the Custom House, we are told, is so much increased, that application has been made to the Commissioners for. several additi- onal clerks. What a pity it is. that our Ultra- Reformers are so likely to be disappointed in their patriotic anticipations ofthe total ruin of British trade! By the accounts laid on the table ofthellouse of Commons, it appears that the following is the amount of corn and grain, meal and ( lour, im- ported into Great Britain in the years ended the 5th January, lb 17 and 1818.

On Wednesday last, Jones the Pedestrian, accomplished his task of walking 61 mites in 13 hours, including one hour for resting, 4 minutes within the given time. The spot marked out for this undertaking, was a quarter of a mile be- tween the turnpike at Stivichal, near Coventry, and the second mile- stone on tiie Warwick - road. " Jones is a native of the city of Oxford, is 27 years of age, of rather a short statute, and light weight, but remarkably strong jn the muscles. His first attempt in pedestrianism was 6( 1 miles in 13 hours, at- Malborough, in Wiltshire; he afterw ards walked 60 miles nt Bath races, it raining tremendously all the time; he next walked two miles in 18 minutes, on the turnpike road, near London; nt Oxford tie performed 1050 mites in 20 successive days ; 111 Banbury, in March last, 600 miles in ten successive days; at Warwick, in July last. 120 miles in 25 hours ; at Leamington last week, 60 miles in 12 hours ; and lastly, 61 miles in 12 boms, at Coventry.—- The above tusks were all performed within the given time. He has lost but two matches, viz. 60 miles in 12 hours, atSution. near'Bath, being taken ill ou the ground; and 50 miles in 2£ hours at Banbury." At Boscobel Wood, in Shropshire, w as found a short time ago, l. etweeu 3 and 4 feet below the surface of the ground, a horse shoe, w hich, tho' milch corroded, is complete in form. From the singularity of its shape, and llie remains of the fastening iruils adhering thereto. it was evident- ly placed backwards upon the hoof; and, from the bent and twisted slateof the nails, lias much the appearance of having been forced off by pn over- reach. The shoe has been inspected by several antiquarians, who are of opinion, that it was thrown from thjj horse rode, by Charles the Second, upon his escape from Worcester, after the defeat of the royal army by Cromwell, in 1651 I! The shoe is now in the possession of a gentleman residing near to Boseobel. It is rather singular, that the sister of Hussey destroyed herself in a tit of insanity at Mr. Shore's, at Highgate, last summer; and that Hussey's brother and uncle are at present con- fined in Bethlem Hospital. Among the improvements in the House of Commons, is a second stab case to the Gallery, by which 110 strangers are to he admitted. But, upon orders for clearing, thestair case is toserve for egress, while the old one is for ingress. By this arrangement, it is calculated that the delay and difficulty which have heretofore occurred in clearing the gallery, will be obviated, those who go out first at one door being sure of the first ad- mission at the other, while by the former system those who were last to go out, were the first to return. We extract from the Manehhter Mereurt) the following passages from the speech of Mr. Citoss, ns counsel for the prosecution, against seven Workmen, convicted at the last Sessions at Manchester, of a riot and assault on some of the Peace Officers at that town. Our readers will fecollect, that Mr. Cross was the very able couusel em- ployed for the Conspirators Braudreth and others, at Derby. IT has been too often my duty ( said ihelearn- ed Counsel.) in the course of the last " 20years, to prosecute, its we'll as on many occasions to de- fend, persons of tlie labouring classes charged with unlawful combination* and other more se- rious offences which gerier'tlfy result from theul. I have, therefore, beeu obliged to become inti- mately acquainted with their proceedings, as far ns they have beiirr brought from timo to time before the public. But whether acting for them or against there. I trust I have nqver ceased, as far as my situation would admit, to afford en- couragement and protection to that portiou of the labouring classes who have been compelled, by threats ^ nd intimidations, to become the un- willing associates of crime; and of this des- cription, I have a!\ vays found by much the largest portion of those who have bee 11 brought under the band of public, justice for such of- fences. Combinations of Workmen for Advance of Wages, upon a small scale, urn! in single estab- lishments, have doubtless occasionally taken place here as long as this hns been a comroer* eial country. But never beforfe the French IIe- volution were they so extensive and organized as they have since become throughout this king- dom. It* was chiefly by means of the horrible combination of the clubs of Jacobins and Re- publicans, established in every town in France, and united by Delegates, and Committees into one general confederacy, that the entire subver- sion of the Government ot that kingdom < vas ef- fected. ' i'tii* project was soon after imported iutrt Ireland, and produced there the rebellion of the people calling themselves United Irish- men. From thence it was introduced for the same purpose into this country, about the year ninety two, and although it happily failed at that time of its intended effect. it was taken up by the handicrafts for the purposes to which it has since been so extensively aud so mischiev- ously applied. Upon this model, permanent organized com- binations have been established and now exist among the workmen in almost every branch of trade, and to which every workmen either by persuasion, threats, and insults, is obliged so far to associate himself as to sulpnit to all their illegal regulations. By rim 1 unl correspondence and co- operation of their committees, and the employment of de legates, those who assume a lead amongst them can at any timeorder out an insurrection in any one or more branches of trade, in any town, or district, or country they think lit, and levy con- tributions upon those trades that continue in employment, for the support of those whom their orders have turned adrift. In this way, the insurrection of the Weavers was ordered out in 1808, and the still more alarming, and general insurrection against ma- chinery in 1812, which extended throughout the greatest part of this and two or three adjoining counties, and which brought many ofthe offend- ers to au ift nominietis death. In 1816, the com- mittee of Calico Printers \ ve; e arrested at Bol- ton,, hi the midst of their deliberations, and their papers seized,. Tbey were brought to trial in thin Court, for a conspiracy, and on that occasi- on it appeared a general turn- orrt, as it is called, of that trade, had taken place ; that the persons on trial were, or assumed to be, each a delegate, representing some large establishment in that extensive branch ef trade ; that they collected contributions, for tire subsistence of the unem- ployed. from committees of almost every other branch of trade, in London, and various other places, and some from Scotland and Ireland, for so far their correspondence and communications extended. And among the rest of their mis- chievous proceedings, this incredible fact ap- peared, that 110 printer. in times of employment, was allowed-- admission into a workshop unless lie hroughf with him a certificate frem some se- cretary or other person in authority among them, that lie had puiditp all demand*, or in other words he was not to earn bis daily bread, till he had purchased a Licence fiom some of the Conspi- rators ! We a re'now in the midst of a new insurrec- iton ofthe Cotton Spinners, and of several other trades, who have been compelled, by orders from their committees, to abandon llieir employ- ment, in the delusivehope of forcing an advance of tnelr Wages, and under this hideous and abo- minable system of terror, nir ny thousands of in- dustrious families are at this moment wander- ing up and down in a state of vagrancy & idle- ness, depending for tlieir subsistence 011 the small and precarious wagi » of iniquity which, their committees choose to deal out from the contributions they levy upon other trades.— Under the influence of this system every family in this populous district that surrounds us is kept in a state of continual alarm and anxiety, especially those ofthe unfortunate employers of the confederates, who are doubtful of the secu- rity of their property r r their lives for another day. Is this a state of things to be endured iu civil- ized society or compatible with its existence?— of w hat avail are the justly boasted liberties, Constitution/ and Independence of Englishmen, to those who are- doomed to live under the arbi- trary and despolio dominion of an invisible com- mi, ttee, eoniposed probably of the vilest and most despicable of men, terrible only because they are unseen and unknown I I protest, for my part, I hail rather live under the single dominion ofthe worst ty runt that ever existed in the world than under such odious authority and control, exposed to the continual recurrence of tumult and insurrection. Let us consider the effect of all these pro- ceedings. -' The Confederates may gain their im- mediate object. ns they have often done before, they may extort an advance of wages. Since these combinations were began, and all in the course of about 20 years, they may have raised wages, that is Ihe- priue of labor, to Ue » « ly dou- ble the former amount. But as the price of la- bor in all manufactures is raised in the same proportion, the Farmer, the Baker, and the Butcher, who are to purchase them, must in like proportion raise the price of provisions. If the Hatters' the Tailors, and the Shoemakers com- bine to ryise their prices, the Whole man is equipped from head to foot upon lii< fher terms and consequently he is no better for the advance, of wages. Anil thus 2s now is of no more value than one was before. And if the process be car- ried on till every handicraft in the Kingdom- has turned his Shilling into a Guinea, he w ill ; not be one farthing the richer. The numerical amount of his vva res w ill be changed, but the actual productive value of them will remain llio same; so nutbing in effect is gained by all the trouble anil vexation of these illegal proceed- ings. But let these deluded men rellect liovv much they lose by them. Ail the contributions, charged upon their w ages, for the support of Delegates and Turn-' outs, and other charges ofthe combinations,^ taxes., that would not be endured,, if levied under the au- thority of Parliament,) are so much actual loss, arid if to this be added the loss of wages during all the time they are out of employment, they will Soil nothing to congratulate themselves upon, in a pecu- niary view, if they gain their object. Lei them reflect ajso on tiie injury our trade with Foreign Coimtries must sCisiain by the forced and artificial price of English labor and the consequent high price of English Merchandize abroad. Already otlr ingenious neighbours iu France and other sur- rounding nations have established cotton factories, and by the cheapness of labor are able to imitate all oar manufactures to great advantage, and while our workmen are unemployed amid these dissensions, they are actively engaged in driving out our trade from all Foreign Market*, and a general stagnation and final ruin of our Foreign Commerce must be the inevitable consequence Nor will the mischief end there. What is to become of this Country if every Workman is to live in continual hostility with his Employer, and the Law, while even the - Apprentices ! and other children in all the Factories are trained j and initiated into all the mysteries, stratagems, and ' vices of Conspirators, as regularly as to their lawful occupations, and thus qualified to become the most dangerous members of socis ty. I coryrire all those who hear me and are engaged in these combinations, to rise and r evolt against the lawless tyranny which forbids them to earn their daily bread, and commands them ajld their families to live in poverty and idleness ' and to deliver over their oppressors to public justice, if any further at- tempts shall be made to obstruct their returns to the ' natural habits of mutual dependence and good will with their Employers, and to the paths of industry and peace.

' To the " Editor of the Leicester Journal. SIR, Having seen in the Leicester Chronicle of last week a letter signed Q, reprobating the Par- liamentary conduct of our late worthy Repre- • fntatue Mr. Keck; I think like Vindox, it is high time for justice to brandish her sword in defence of a man, w ho by bis Independence, bis Integrity. a: nl his anxious atlcniion to the inte- rests of this county, has, and will ever deserve, the esteem, and applause of all Loyal and Inde- pendent men The ouly objections Q. states to Mr. Kosk's Parliamentary conduct; are, that he slid not Bpurn with indignation, the assertion, that disaffection to Government pre vailed in this County, and consequently, ( for that is his mean- ing) that he did not give his negative to the sus- pension ofthe Habeas Corpus Act. Now let me nsk the author of this letter ? how any indivdual with the least regard to veracity, cotlldhave de- nied the existence of disaffection in this county, an I th ii. even to un nlarming extent. Can any one suppose the Hampden Clubs, ( composed of Repub. icans, and Dissenters; and which com- municated by Delegates with those established In other parts- <> f the country) were calculated to promote Loya'ty, and Attachment to the Go- vernment; No 1 the very reverse, their profess- ed aim was a change in the existing Govern- ment, and unless their increasing strength had been suppressed, by arming the executive Go- liopc to attain, but is remarkable also for that w ell- bred ease with w hich a man of fashion can apply ancient maxims to modern times. And, here I Cannot help admiring the freedom and spirit with which a scrap of rjalin has been turned into English by the same masterly hand ; I allude to the translation of " Vox populi" and " Vox Dei," which the orator made for Iho be- nefit ofthe Freeholders, lam assured that when he translated the one into " Atheism" and the other into " Revolution;" all his friends around him were in an ecstacv, and with one voice pro- nounced it divine.— 1 hear too, that that they have entreated liiia to bear the words " Vox Dei" as a motto on bis family seal.— On the re- verse of this seaT, which is to be cut by the Re- gent's best engraver, I would suggest the follow- ing motto, no less applicable, " Vox et preelera nihil." Another good effect which I have been. Iiappv to observe, is a remarkable degree oi hospitality in a quarter, w here it could never be expected. . An open House— frequent Dinners— and a tap, always flowing— are said to be some of the wonders produced by our late events.— The Freeholders of Leicester, as report says, need only take a walk, to see the mighty change;— and what is more wondeiful, when the sporting season comes they will doubtless bo invited to sport Without alarm.— This hospitality, as the good pfeople are told, is not merely for the occa- sion, but to continue as long as the New Par- liament, they may, therefore, make themselves at home for tbe next seven years. ' the last effect of the contest, which I shall mention, is a subject of great congratulation— II has discovered who are tbe pretenders to loy- alty, and who are the truly loyal—' The " TrUe Blues" with their usual modesty) have exclu- sively assumed the title to loyalty, and Called themselves the only loyal party in the County-.^— But since this contest, though I have frequently beard the King's health pioposed as a toastf I have as frequently seen tbe Blues turn pale, aud pass the toast in silence.— On tbe other hand) the opposite party drink it with enthusiasm) calling down a " long life on the good old King."— Now, it is clcar, that upon their defini- tion of the term, the Blues are not the loyal sub- jects they pretend to be, but all tlitj loyalty of the counfy is on the side of their Opponents. Now, then, as to the Statements— your JoUr1- naj of the last week contains Mr. Pbillipps's " Answer to tht Plain Statement," and " The ad- ditional explanatory Statement," signed by tbe three Gentlemen, who have formed the " triple alliance."— His answ er contains the facts, which In stated on the Hustings, when he entered Into tbe explanation of his conduct; and all these faefs are admitted by the u explanatory Staie- applicatlon of such a nature, when a former had been so refused ? And why should Mr. Keck repeat his solicitation in this quarter, when he might select a Nominator from his " True. Blue Friends" ! There is only one way hi which 1 can explain this conduct of Mr. Keck and Mr. Mun- dy, who wrote the two pressing letter* request- ing him t « > attend at Leicester. ' They must have beard, that a Deputation had waited on Mr. Pbillipps, they might have some doubt whether he would listen to their proposal, perhaps they were afraid he would. Whatonght they to have done ! they ought to have arked him immedi- ately whether he intended to come forward as an opponent; instead of this, they have recourse to a trick, aud try to entangle by drawing him Into a consultation with their party. By this scheme * hieh we impute to them, they hate de- feated themselves. If these letters so fatal to them, had not been sent, tho W embers of the Triple Alliance might have Been atthis moment reposing, at Stonghton iu all the security cf an uncontested Election;— aud the Ex- Member might have had another opportunity of treating the county w ith the coolness and indifference, which are usually the fate ot a close borough — But to the joy ofthe Independent Freeholders, their letters were destined to bring over to Lei- cester, one w ho should afterwards beforccdinto thp Nomination. The consequence was, that Mr. Keck in it moment fled and left the field, thus forfeiting for ever his title to a " Taut. Blue." And let the Freeholders of the County now consider, whether* man of such a tremu- lous, feeble, and dispiiited character, is worthy of Representing them in Parliament. Tho Triple Alliance after adverting jo a pass- age in Mr. Phillipps's answer, in which he says that he w ent over to Leicester in compliance with their pressing requests and also for the purpose of making a communication to Mr. Keck, proceeds thus, the fact is, Mr. Keek and his friends only heard by ACCIDENT of flSr. Phil- lipps't arriturt at Leicester, and the Plain State- ment wills/ itnv, HOW stick intendedcommtadealun was made Here is an insinuation thrown out,, but it is not any answ er. Tho instant that he ar- rived atLeicester they knew it; theirscouts were on the ahirt; they took cure to anticipate any per- sonal communication on his part, by forcing an interview at Mr. Pares'*. When they know the purport of his communication, it is singular, that instead of conveying it themselves to Mr Keck, they again had recourse to their old plan of pressing Sir. Pliillippu to join them, and ap- pear among their party, another prool of their spirit of tricking and ihanoeuvring. In the next passage " the Triple Alliantt" alluding to a statement of Mr. Ptullipps's, that he had no con- ference with Mr. Paget mid Mr. Part.', say ( as if correcting a mistake) they beg leave t « remind Mr. ment " with the exception of of « . e which shall correetingu mistake) they brgleav, Urtmxna Mr. l" e afterwards mentioned. This admission is | Phdhpps that for alterable time during which most important; as all the facts of the case are now fully before the public. Mr. Piiilfipps's answer completely removes the false colouring which is so dexterously thrown over some part of the business by the Plain Statement." If 1 am not greatly mistaken, Ihat " Plain State- ment" cost no little trouble, and passed under the revision of more heads than form the " tri- ple aliiauce." It is impossible to read this Statement, together with Mr. Phillipps's wer. without perceiving tbe art with which tlie triple alliance hove got up their case. Their explanatory Statement is any thing rather than an explanation— it shows extreme weakness, and completely establishes the case of their op- ponent. In the first place, " they submit that ihey have made no representation whatever in thrir " ti. e .,/ ittrra e- » - < MirrU of Mr. veruiHe. it with a stronger power than nt that I plum Statement, of the » n< i « r<, of Mr. time existed ; I feel confident that the kingdom j phillipps's tappnt."— On the other band Mr. — -' I ' • !.— I- - J >- . v.- " f I Plnllippa' My*, " they represent him as having given a general promise. Their words arc these. would have been involved iu the horrora of insurrection and bloodshed. It ntn at this peri- od, when die Hampden, and Spencean Clubs weic fast increasing, and threatening the very existence of the Monarchy, that Ministers pro posed the suspension of the Habeas Corpus Act; and it was at this period, and under these circumstances, that the Independent part of the House of Commons, ( amongst which was our late worthy Representative Mr. Keck) support- ed the suspension ; a measure w liiuh has enti- tled them lo our thanks, which has preserved British liberty, ( the admiration of surrbuuding nations) and enabled us to hand it dow n to pos- terity unimpaired, at a time when liberty was becoming licentiousness ; and would soon have existed only in idea; far from thinking that Air Keek's v i le on this occasion was wrong, I think l) is Constituents have reason to be proud of it; have reason lo think it a proof ofhis lndcpend ence; but a short lime previous to it, he had voted iu opposition to Ministers, on a question of the utmost importance to his Constituents, and the country at large, I menn the Property Tax. And in short upon a careful review ofhis votes for ( lie last twenty years ; 1 doubt not, all impartial, and unbiassed individuals, will ac- knowledge them to have been prompted by con- scieiitious and independent motives. These are the principles upon w hich I conceive his claims rest, aud which will secuie him the support of tbe moderate and independent Freeholders of the county. I am, Mr. Editor, Your obedient Servant, li. REMARKS ON THB STATEMENTS, & c. To the Editor of the L ncester Journal. sin. As yon are a Friend to free enquiry, ami have admitted into your Journal many letters and • addresses on the subject of the late Election. I trust you will favor me by insertiug the follow- ing remarks, I have read with great attention, the " Plain Statement," the " Statement in Answer," anil the Additional StatementI have read also, with as much attention as they deserve, the nddrcss of the " Independent Freeholder," and tbe production of " Publivns."— The " Independ- ent Freeholder" is an echo of " The Plain Stnt- ffleot;" and contains, like the original, much insinuation without any argument. ' As for Publicus," he dips bis pen in dirt, nnd affect.? line wriling. before be has learned to w rite Eng- lish.— His last sentence is the perfection of rhapsody, and precisely what might have be<* n' expected Irom the title, which he assumes, of * The True Blue Friend-"— when pertuess. flip- pancy, and low- bred familiarity pass for argu- ment, Publicns will be thought a sensible writer and sound reasoncr. Before I allude to the Statements, and tlie © hsfrvatioiw llmt have been made upon them, let me congratulate the public on the great and important effects of the late contest. In tbe first plaee, it has brought forward such splendid ta- lents for eloquence and classical taste, as have Jaeen rarely equalled, nnd never excelled, by all the Baronets of the land.— That unexpected al- iusion to " long train of Ancestry" who have in former times represented the county, was vastly pathetic, and affected the 9)> eaker no less than the audience. Then tbe remark, that we read in Hainan history, of " bravery being rewarded," / i< tt only shews such a deep nwpmintnncft with ^"'• Slyi!> feff w » t « Htrj Gentlemen c; ui ever Mr. Keck had received some letters from his friends promising their support, among others one from Mr. Philiipps." Now when a Candidate tells me, that when a Gentleman has promised hiin his support, I conclude that the promise is general, unless the contrary is expressed. A promise is not lo be presumed to be subject to conditions or qualifications, when none are mentioned. What is expressed in general terms, must be understood as general. Under certain circumstances, indeed it may be evident from the nature if the case, that a promise is not to be taken as general, though generally expiessed; for instance, if a person were to tell me that the Ex- Member had given him the liberty o( sport- ing on Ids manors, there from the nature of the case. 1 should conclude, that it was a very eon lined and special liberty. But others, wh « ave not the same means of knowledge, would come to a different Conclusion ; and very justly, for what is expressed without limitation, is not to be consideied as limited. The Triple Alliucce tire clearly in the wrong upon this p< int, tin every principle of common sense and common grammar. It is true, then, that they have mis- represented the leifer They have represented a piomise as general, which in its terms tras li- mited, and specifically pointed to one particu- lar instance. To say t^ e least of this part of their Statement, it was most uncandid and un- fair. The next remark in the Explanatory State- ment, relates to a supposed friendship between the New- Member and the Ex- Member. Upon such a subject I am not sufficiently acquainted with these gentlemen, to give any opinion. ' Ihat no intimacy subsisted between them, is evident from the facts stated in Mr. Phillipps's answer, which are admitted oil tbe other si-; e. I con- clude these gentlemen met upon friendly terms, the one writes a letter civilly, anil the other an- swers it as civilly. But, is Mr. Keck weak enough to imagine, because a gentleman iu tbe county meets him on friendly terms, or even on some former occasion gave him his vote, that he is therefore bound lo him for life ? or, that if he is put into the nomination, he is bound to re- fuse that honor? Tbe notion is too absurd to be supported for a moment. Then again the Ex- Member seems to have imagined, that our New Member ought to have explained to him his po- litical creed before be ventured to come forward as a Representative. But bis late constituents may with much more reason comphtiii of him for not apprizing them of his intention to eulogize Oliver in the House of Commons. The idea that the Ex- Member is to set himself up as a Political Co tffessor, or that any gentleman should be expected to state tohim bis political opinions before he can aspire to the honor of represent- ing the county, is childish and preposterous in the extreme; mofe partieulnrly in the present case, as Mr. Phillipps did not stand on tbe in- terest of Mr. Keck, or on that of Mr. Keek's personal friends. The Triple Alliance in the next passage of fhe Explanatory Statement, submit whether it can be considered extraordinary, that Mr. Keek should pressingly solicit Mr. Phillipps's attendance at the Nomination. I eonnot but think, that itwas not only extraordinary, but most undignified and beneath him. Mr. Phillipps had positively re- fused to nominate him ; for what reason, unless he disapproved of some part of bis public con- duet, or differed from him on the subject of po- litics. And would any man of spirit or high feeling, condescend t* make a scconu pressing Mr. Mundy and Mr. Maior inert U' tlking with Mr. Pares, ht appeared ta them to bt in close con- versation with Mr. Paget. But tbe question is whether he had any CONFERENCE, a very diffe- rent tiling from a CONVERSATION. They intimat- ed in their plain statement that he lir. d n confer- ence ; for they say, after JVr. I'hillipps hadfmi sh- ed his conference with Mr. Paget he joined them ; in answer to this, Mr. Phillipps denies having hui any conference, and now they reply that he appeared to be iii contcrsation. It may be so, they might have been conversing upon a > ariety of topics, but slill the fact is unaltered, ( and this is the only uiatcriul point) that they had no conference, or consultation relative to the Election. I will trouble you now with only one addi- tional remark. It w ill be reuieml » ci.: d that w hen a proposal was no; « ! e to Mr. Phiilipps on the hustings nominate bmi, he declined it. say- ing, No, No, let it pass, J am satisfied, and Mr. Muudy on the day of Election admitted that he had used these expressions, ' l'kis circumstance is however, entirely omitted in " the Plain State- ment." They now soy, that the omission was un- intentional. If it was so, it is most extraordina- ry. They could not have forgotten the circum- stance, bccititse it produced a great impression; and it was clearly of the utmost cousequence to Mr, Phillipps in tbe explanation ofhis conduct If they did not intend to omit, it is clear at least, that they did not intend to insert it. Aud the non- insertion is ofa piece with the uncandid and artful texture of the w hole of their State- ment. But they goon to say, the inference drawn by the public from the facts ditailed in the Plain Statement would not hare been alien d er affected by ike insertion of such expressions. This subterfuge leads one to suspect llie sincerity of their de- claration, for it must he obvious, that Mr. Phil iipps's declining to'he nominated, nt the very moment w hen he w as put ibid nomination; is utterly inconsistent with. the notion ofhis having expressed a few' minutes before ( as Mr. Mumiy anel Mr. Keck w ould wish to insinuate) an inten- tion to be nvminated. The fact of his declining at the lost moment isa convincing proof, that when lie told Mr. Mundy lie was going to be put into• nomination, he could not have used theise words in tbe sense which that Gentleman has aflixed to them, but inthe sense which he nientions'in his answer. These are the only words in the Plain Statement" which require nny ex pin na- tion, and tbey are most satisfactorily explained by the other passage above alluded to- The in- sertion therefore cf these expressions in their I3lain Statement," so far froui being unittlport- ant, would of itself have given a plain answer to all their insinuations, and have removed tlie false colouring which they liaye so artfully spread over tlieir account of the transaction. But whatever ihey may eay, it was par; of their plan, as they thought it also their interest to take no notice of the circumstance; and if Mr, Phillipps had not mentioned it in his answer those only who were present at the dny of Elec- tion would have known the facts. I now tr. ke leave, for the present, of this fa- mous" Triple Alliance", and when they ortheir friends again issue foithwitb fresh Ictlei s br ail- dresses, I shall be ready to give them aSecoud Meeting, I remain Sir, Yours respectfully, VERAX.
