AND MIDLAND COUNTIES VOL. LXVIII. Printed and Published hy John Price Son, Market- place, Leicester. No. 3481 FRIDAY, APRIL 23, 1819. { Circulated through the principal Towns and populous Villages in the Counties of Leicester, Rutland, ) I Lincoln, Nottingham, Derby, Statiord, Warwiek, Northampton, Cambridge, and Yolk. 5 ( STAMP DUTY id. \ PRICE SEVEN" PENCE— OIL t PAPER Ar PRINT., 3d. \ EIGHT SHILLINGS per Quarter Sunday and Tuesday's Posts. LONDON, MONDAY, April 19. A mail from [' landers lias arrived, bring- ing Brussels papers to the lGtii instant. Uw tlio 14th instant the Duke and Duchess of Kent proceeded on their journey to London. His Lloyal ighness is so careful of the health of Liis consort, that he. suffers no one to drive the carriage in which she travels but himself. A combination took place last month among the female cotton- spinners at Brussels, to the number of 400, whose object was to stop the, manufactories of Mr. Peche and Mrs. Boulon, of that city; and to de- stroy a piece of machinery, which, it is said, when put in motion by / women, " will de- prive three hundred persons of the means of obtaining their livelihood." Five of the ring- leaders in this conspiracy, all young women under 20 years of age, were to be tried on the 15th before die Tribunal of First In- stance. The disputes between the cavalry and infantry of the garrison of Brussels have been terminated by the parties meeting at a piiblic house, crossing their sabres, and swearing over them eternal friendship; in consequence of which the lmssars in custody as riugle dors in the disgraceful fracas . which disturbed the peace of the capital ofthe Ne- therlands, have been discharged. A rumour was abroad in France a few days ago, that the Northern Courts of Pe- tersbnrgh and tftock olin were not on the liappiest terms. The cause of. this. alienation is left to conjecture:— the effect, howei er, up- on the dignity of one person may be esteem- ed of great i portance. We observe also, that our Paris correspondent does not speak in terms ol unqualified praise of the present King of Sweden.— Vhe Times. Private accounts state, that the negociati- OHS between Sweden and Dmiliar , respect- ing the fulfilment of the treaty of Kiel, arc solar advanced, that a diflnitive Convention i$. o! i the point of being conc luded. Hop Intelligence. 1— Accounts from Maid- stone say " The polliug and dressing of Hops has generally commenced in this neighbourhood. The warm u eat er for the list few duys, has uud a great ff ct on the voungshoots, which now appear strong and healthy in most places," Lieuten nt Beeehey, who made the draw- ings duri g the 1 te attempt to sail to ti. e North Pole direct, is appoi , ted to tue 1 lecla, aud Lieutenant tioppuer to t ie Griper, about to sail to discover a passage to the Pa- cific Ocean, through Davis's Straits. The former Officer is the son of Sir . B. echey, ; UK1 the latter of the late artist, Mr. Boppner. The account in Consols close > 011 > hurs- day; but the differences wore not fii;;> lly adjusted till Friday, when two defaulters only \ gere declared, and these to a very inconsid- erable amount. ending- the Sth of April was £ 42,235,726; for theyear 1818, £ 39,598,192: exhibiting an ex- cess of £ 2,637,534 by the former over the latter. Such is the financial state of the country.— Let us now turn to the state of its commerce.— From the abstract laid before Parliament ofthe imports and exports for three years, ending the 5th of January last, it appears, that the total ofthe declared value of the goods exported in 1816 was-£ 42,955.256 ; in the subsequent year, £ 43,626,253 ; and last year. £ 48,903,760 :— a vast increase beyond its predecessors. The to- tal ofthe declared value of the imports, includ- ing those from Ireland aud the Isle of Man, was, 1816, £ 30,105,565; in the following year £ 33,965,231; and last year, ,£ 40,157.034. We commend these statements to the serious onsideration of those patriotic persons among us who have for years delighted in predicting nothing- but ruin to the finances and commerce of the country. They show, that our commerce has not lost that elasticity which enables it to ecover from temporary depressions owing to causes aud events over which human wisdom lid sagacity can have no control Facts like these are sufficiently discouraging to such men. They musteither abandon the vocation in which they delight; or consent to have their sinister rophesies falsified, and their motives sus- pected. THE REVENUE. Abstract ofthe Net Produce of the Revenue of Great Britain, ( exclusive of the Arrears of War Duty on Malt and Property.) in the Years and Quarters ended 5th April, 1818, and 5th April, 1819, showing the increase or decrease on each bead thereof. THE REVENUE. The official accounts of the net produce ofthe Revenue of Great Britain in the years ending the 5th of April, 1818, and the 5ib of April. 1319, have been laid before Pa liament and published. A tabular view of them will be fbundat foot. As, however, someof our reade. s may not be very conversant in financial details it may be useful to such to have the general re suits ofthe accounts exhibited to tbetn in an intelligible shape. The net income of Great Britain, in the year which ended the fifth of April instant, was £ 49.056,503; that of the year which ended th< f Sth of April, 1818, was £ 47,247,631- The re- venue of the year 1819 exceeds, therefore, that of 1818 by the sum of £ 1,808,93 2. This itself is a very considerable improvement. But it is in strictness, even greater this. It must be re liiembered, that the revenue of the year 1818 was swelled by a larger receipt of arrears of Property Tax than that of the last year. 1818 these arrears amounted to £ 1,295,299 voiid the year 1819. If, therefore, we deduct this sum from the revenue of the year 1818, the total amount of the income of the last year will exhibit an increase of not less a sum than £ p, 104,231 beyond that of its predecessor, most gratifying increase. Ia the great sources of revenue, the Customs and the Excise, there has bee. i a very cunsi derableand pieasing improvement during the past year. Compared with the prec< dingyear, 1* he excess in the Excise is £ 2.884,476 ; ill the Customs £ 259,( Kit; making, together, a total of „£ 8,143,54i>. The account of the Excise dti ties v. ill be read with satisfaction. It exhibits a marked increase in almost every article of domestic consumption on w hich an excise im post is levied ; particularly in some which are regarded as indispensable . to an Englishman, and the increased consumption of which marks the gro. w ing ability of the people to enjoy not few of the cumfurt, of life. In the two articles of malt and beer alone there lias been an in crease beyond the year 1$ I8 of £ 1.4 : 0,659, — The iiicieasciu the consumption of wine and tea has also been considerable. The only ar- ticles in which tiiere has been a decrease are poll'ee and cocoa, soap, and tobacco and gnu IT; amounting, altogether, to the sum of £ 81,759 jguch is the satisfactory state of the annual in- come of the country. 1 he iuc. ease 011 the quar- ter which ended tile 5th of April, compared with the correspondent quarter of the prect - ingi year is not less satisfactory.

The Viceroy, iL. is said, received the Deputies with every mark of respect-— expressing t. is determination to supply them w ith all sorts of arms, coilsist- i: ig of muskets, lances, and a considerable quantity oi gunpowder. He also advised, that they should be accompanied by cxpe- l- ienc d Officers, w hose duty it would be to point, out to the inhabitants of Arancana the best measures to he adopted to make it- difli- < tilt fiir the I'atriots to penetrate into their country.

Wednesday morning they commenced at 723 for the Account, but from the immense sales thrown upon the inar- Vet, they fell to 7I1; the depression is attributed to the present stagnation of Commerce, and t ie reports in circulation respecting a Loan.

A Hamburgh mail arrived, on Wednes- day morning, bringing papers to the 13th instant: These assert, that the dignity of Land Marshal of Hanover is to be made'he- reditary in the family of Crmnt MunsCer, lire" Ambassador irom thateouuirv toourCourt. The Deputies front Livonia, headed l; y their Land Marshal, have been presented to the Emperor of llussia, from whom they re- quested a confirmation, of the new Consti- tution, giving emancipation to t e peasantry. In his reply to their request, the Emperor said, " It must bo agree. ible to your carts to have contributed to the happiness of a nu- merous and important class of men, by con- cessions, which facilitate the means of ae- ' quiringit, to persons born with equal claims lo it. You have acted in the spirit of our agS, in which liber., 1 principles alone can found the happiness of nations." The Nobi- lity ofthe Government. of the Duna have now also resolved on the emancipation ol' the pea- sants, their vassals. The King of i rtissia has issued aa Ordinance, enjoining such of the youth of his dominions as are students at the Lnive- sity of Jena to quit that place, nrtd pursue their studies at some University in t e Prussian dominions. Those who do not comply w ith t is order of recall at e to be rendered incapable of holding any office under , the Prussian Government. A Con- v ention has been concluded between Russia and Prussia, by which woollen, linen, and leather, of Prussian manufacture, imported into Poland, will be greatly favoured. Car- n< it, the French exile is still at Magdeburgh, instead of hav ing gone to Frankfort, or Of- fenbach, us was reported. A loan, in the form of a Lottery, is to be opened in Han- over, to the amount of 800,000 dollars ; the price of each ticket to be 1.00 dollars. By a re olution of the states of the kingdom, the forced loan raised by the French, during their occupancy of Hanover, has been de- clared part of the public debtof'the state. • Ml • » 5g Charleston Papers, of a late date was re- c. ei ed this morning- Interesting from Washington.— We are in- debted to our friends at AVashington for the lollavv iug.= political news ; the views which they furnish ofthe late Treaty with Sp in are interesting, and vv ill only give you the out- line of the Treaty with Spain :— 1. Tue Floridas are ceded in full to the United States. The session includes all the t.- riitory ot Spain east of the Mississippi river, w ith the ad acent islands dependent on the Provinces. 2. The w estern boundary commences at the mouth of the Sanine liver, continues north along the western bauk of tlie said li- ver to the 22d degree of latitude ; thence by a line due north, until it intersects the Rio ]{ o\ o, or red river; thence along the river Jlio Uoxo, westward, to the one hundredth dogree of longitude west from London, and 32 from Washington; thence, by a line due north to tiie river Arthanas, to its source in latitude 42; thence, on that parallel of lati- tude, to the south sea. The last map of Me- lish, improv ed to the first of January, 181ft, is referred to in the treaty for the line, and vou will have no difficulty in tracing it. 3 The 24th January, 1818, is selected for regulating the validity of grants by Spanish i. utnority ; all before that day are declared v idid by the treaty, all subsequent to that day are void. 4. The United States and Spain mutually relinquish all claims for injuries, either na- tional or private, prior to the signing the treaty. 5.'" The United States assume payment to their own Ckizens of claims to the amount of - 8), 000,000 dollars, to be ascertained by Commissioners appointed by the President. G.

A preterence is given to Spanish ves- sels, to the exclusion o those of other na- tions, in the ports of I'ensscola and August- inft, for twelve years. This is an outline of the. treaty ; it will not be printed in form until after the exchange of ratifications. It passed the Senats by an unanimous vote, and a resolution was agreed to, allowing tue substance to be given.— Sun. The House of Commons re- assembled on Wednesday, pursuant to adjournment; and the Lords yesterday. No less than 2- K> of our Naval Lieutenants have recently embarked for Canada, to pos- sess themselves of their portions of land in that province, conformably to the regulations oi Covermeut in their favour. Brace's Watch. — Among oilier pieces of anti- quity, in Iits present Majesty's possession, is a watch,- which was found fa Bruce's Castle in Scotland, about 45 years since. On the dial plate is written,—" Robertus 15. Re* SciflV runi," ; and over it, is a convex born, instead of a glass. Now, as Robert Bruce began his reign in 1305, and died in 1328. the watch must have been made upwards of5f) 0 years since. The outer case is of silver in a raised pattern, on a ground of blue enamel. Coolie.— A physician seeing Cooke about to drink a glass of brandy, said, " Don'tdrink that filthy stuff; brandy is the worst enemy you have." " 1 know that," replied Cooke, " but you know the Scriptures command us to love our enemies ; so here goes!" A letterfrom Tewkesbury states, that thetah- tinued depression ofthe stocking maniifaetmy has reduced the masters to suspend their em- ploy to artificers. It says, we have no trade- no money—- and unless something is done to re lieve the accumulating burthen of the poor's rate, we must all be ruined ; one house dis- charged 100 bands last week, and others are daily decreasing the number of workmen ; the consequences have caused an influx of applica- tions at tlie workhouse, more appalling and ex- iensive than at any future period. It further no- tices the gradual decline of business, an. 17' Ju, 1SOC, i816, and 1818, as laid before the House of Commons :— I, i tiie year 1756, the total amount of toe Effects of tlie Suitors iu the High Court © fChancery, w as ..£ 2,864,975 16 1 In 1760 the total amount " was 1,01< J, t « > 4 19 4 In 1776 the total amount was 6,602,229 8 6 In 1786 the total aniountnas .... £. 848,535 7 II I" 1796 the total. inioiiHt was ..

John Baguley', John Drummond, and Samuel Jo'ni. mii, convicted of Sedition, on the 15th itist. ( see trial in the last page,) were this day brought up to receive sentence. The Chief Justice, after having very patiently heard the Prisoners at the Bar make their de- fence respecting any mitigation of punishment, then addressed them as follows: " Samuel Johnson, John Drunimonit and John Baguley, yon have been charged, severally and jointly, vvith Sedition, with addressing a large meeting, and uttering such expressions as to stir up and incite the people to disrespect and hatred ofhis Majesty's Government and his Mi- nisters. You me likewise charged in this Indict- ment with a conspiracy against the Government of this Realm, with an intention to subvert it." His Lordship then observed, that the prisoners had pleaded Not Guilty to the Indictment, that the case had been patiently heard, that their Counsel was not interrupted, and that they had called on their part no witnesses, for they would have been heard also with the greatest patience. — His Lordship likewise observed, that the evi- dence w as so clear, the witnesses so consistent in every lespect as to their evidence, and that the Jury were so convinced of their guilt, as ap- pears fiom their verdict, to the satisfaction of himself and all persons present, appealing to them, and observing, that if any of them were not perfectly satisfied, they should state why they have any doubt on the subject, beeause he himself was perfectly satisfied that tbe case was so clear and convincing as nut to he contradict- ed. Elis Lordship then adverted to an opinion of one ofthe prisoners, who had been speaking concerning Judges, Juries, & c. having previous instructions from Government how to act; re- marking that they must be ignoinnt of the duty, See. of Judge, if they supposed their judgment depended upon any previous arrangement of Government, or of the Cabinet Ministers, for he declared, as be had frequently done before, that the sentence which would be presently passed upon them, would chiefly depend upon the evi- dence ofthe prosecution, and that it would have no relation to any other circumstance but w hat was connected with the present case; that he was biassed by no authority, hut he should pass sentence according to tire evidence he had heard. His Lordship then read some of ( lie speeches of each prisoner, with suitable comments: he ad- verted to the distress of the times when these meetings occurred, that the Weavers and Spin- ners were chiefiy out of employ, that they pa- raded the streets ia vast bodies about that pe- riod ; and then observed, that they took advan- tage to call a meeting to incite the people there assembled, by various inflammatory and sedi- tious speeches, intended to atir theni; » p to dis- affection to flie King and hatred ef the Govern- ment, and so forth, as was expressed in the in- dictment. He here read a great part ofthe evi- dence respecting the speeches of the prisoneis. — He observed uLo, that the meeting was c< j. lt- ed under the pretence of taking into csnslder- ation the distress and grievances ofthe people, and importing ti nt a change of representation was absolutely necessary, with other topics of the like nature, but that they at this meeting delivered speeches of a seditious tendency., as specified in the evidence: that their several speeches were on very inflammatory subjects; and such as were more calculated to rouse the feelings of their hearers with respect to their alledged grievances, sufferings, and so forth; adding, that in one speech the King is called, a robber; that they have been starved by him ; and that all thieves are cunning; and then their miseries were painted to them in the strongest colours, and they vv ere advised to redress them by arms; that the National Convention, which they would have established, should supersede the present Constitution, and the ordinary laws of the country, and that the people then present, together with the Delegates, should go armed to Loudon, should there remonstrate about their grievances, and if not immediately redressed, should contend with force for then liberties, " their long lost liberties." His Lordship then adverted to Johnson's speech, wherein lieavovv- ed an intention of assassinating certain indi- viduals therein named in a wilful, cool, and de- liberate manner, persons in the Cabinet ofthe names of Castlereagh, Sidmouth, and Canning, and he pointed out such evidence, as to render the case clear to all persons, evidence indeed so clear and consistent as not to be contradict- ed in any point whatever. His Lordjhipstated Baguley's sentiments respecting tbe Petition, & c What was the meeting held for? l Was it to take into consideration a redress of the griev- ances of the people? Did they think. it legal, when they asserted that they were so peacea- ble, or else they might be committed ! The of- ficers of justice were at hand, and they were conscious that very little would cause them to be co/ jimitted. lie then commented o'- i th » language maide use. of by Johnson and Drum mo. id, and informed them, it was very fortu- nate that they were secured so early in their, measures ; for if they had proceeded one step further, they would most probably have stood at the bar indicted for High Treason, the pun- ishment of which is the most severe that the Law inflicts, instead of the present judgment. — He then spoke of the prisoners, alluding to Sidney, Hampden, and I? ussell, ihe Founders ofthe Constitution names w hich they ought to revere, but which they had profaned, and al- luded to by tlie( n in an assembly of persons who could be little read in tbe English History.— That Government was under no alarm of such persons as themselves, that the great mass of the people were allied to the Constitution, and that. only - such poor and deluded wretches as listened to theirs and such speeches were dis- affected to it. His Lordship then pronounced the sentence of Two Year's Imprisonment, and the prisoners to find bail in £ 5ii0 each them- selves, for their good behaviour for two years- longer, and sureties in £ 100 each. v Corn Exchange, April 21.

Resolved— That 111 the opinion ofthis meet- ing the bill for amending the law relating to the settlement of the poor is a partial measure, cal- culated to relieve country parishes exclusively, to the disadvantage and at the expense of the manufacturing and populous towns. Resolved— That the said bill, will in the opin- ion of this meeting, be highly injurious to Lei- cester, by making many thousand of settle- ments beyond those which would - otherwise be acquired and consequently that it will greatly increase the burthen of the poor's rates. Resolved-— That it is the duty of every owner and occupier of property in Leicester, pay ing poor's rates, to use bis utmost exertions to pre- veif ti. e said bill from passing into a law. Resolved-— That petitions be presented to both Houses of Parliament against the said bill, anil that the petition now read be adopted, as em bodying the sentiments of this meeting. Resolved— That the petition lie for signatures at the Tow n Hall, for a few days. Resolved— That the Members for the Borough be requested to present the petition 1o the House of Commons, and to give it their sup- port; and that tUe Lord Lieutenant of the County be requested to present und support the petition to the House of Lords. Resolved— That copies of the petition, and of these resolutions be sent to the Members for the County, and that they he earnestly requested to support the same Resolved— That these resolutions and a copy of the petition b^ ctfculated in hand bills, anil advertised in the Leicester papers. Resolved - That the Magistrates be requested to forw ard copies of these resolutions and peti- tion to such places as they shall think fit. JAMES J^ ANKART, MAYOR, ( COPY OF THE PETITION) To the Honorable the Commons, ef the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the Churchwardens, Guardians, Overseers of the Poor, and other In- habitants of the Borough of Leicester, whose names are subscribed. Sheueth, That your pstit^ opers are deeply interested in the bill now befiOre your Honourable House for amending the laws relating to the settle- ment of the poor." That your petitioners are sensible of the grievous pressure of the poor rates, and of the difficulty of legislation upon this important subject, and your petitioners would not there- fore be disposed to hazard objections upon slight or frivolous grounds, but the provision that settlements may be gained simply by three years residence, seems to your petitioners tobe so pregnant with evil to Leicester, and all other manufacturing and populous towns, that your petitioners would hold themselves deficient in duty, did they not solicit the earnest attention of your Honourable House to the subject. Your petitioners are alive to the distress which removals after long absence, to distant, and as it were strange places some time's occa- sion, and they can well appreciate the benevo- lenee by which this evil would be relieved or re- moved, but your petitioners can see no resem- blance to such a case ill instances where the residence of parties in the removing parish- has continued for only three years ;— a period w hich can scarcely have been sufficient to form new habits or acquaintances, much less to have ob- literated all regard to those associated with for- mer settlements. In objecting to this provision, therefore, your petitioners do not see that they ore " violating any feelings of humanity, or that theycon be justly char'gable with insensibility to the comforts of the poor. Your petitioners can see no other principle by which this measure can be either justified or palliated, for as a measure of relief they conceive that it does no- thing; having no tendency whatever to dimin- ish the quantum of public burthen or to prevent the evil of litigation, but rather increasing the chances of both. That it will transfer numerous settlements from Villages to the County Towns, and thus operate exclusively to the disadvant- age of large and populous places is obvious, and it is upon this ground your petitioners feel themselves aggrieved. Y'our petitioners are al- ready burthened with the maintenance of a ve- ry large proportion of manufacturing poor, and if the above bill should pass into a law, your petitioner- scan fix no limit to the incre ise of poor parishioners, or to the consequent distress which must ensue. The opulent and more al ! 6 payers of rates will necessarily abandon the tow n, and the master manufacturers will even- tually reside in the villages, thus leaving to Lei cester a consolidated population of persons needing relief, and none able to supply it. Your petitioners most earnestly beseech your Honourable House to take these objections and partial effects into your serious consideration, and they humbly pray thai liis saiU l| i! l t » ay j no! pats Into a Uuv. A meeting of the Churchw ardens, Ganrdlnns, and Overseers of the poor of the several parishes in this town, was conversed by the Mayor and Magistrates on Monday last, to deliberate rn the " Bill for amending the Law relating to tho settlement of the Poor." Several resolutions were ente> ed into, and a Petition to the Legit, latnre drawn tip and agreed to, which is iuseitu ed in this page. On Tuesday morning last about half past 4 o'clock, as the Telegraph Coach, going upwards, was entering the Gallowtree Gate, ( and a short distance from the Three Cranes Inn, its place ot destination) it was upset by the breaking nf the nxletree:— the Guard was seriously hurt, but • lie Passengers escaped without material injury. Two accidents occurred in the Market- piece yesterday morning in the short space of a few minutes, the horse of one of the Privates of tho Ith Dragoon Guards, during parade, reared up and fell backwards upon bis rider, w ho was in- inred, but 110 bones broken ; a Boy passing through the passage bv the Lion and Lamb . on horseback, about the same time, the horse slip- ped down, and in the fall the boys leg was bro- ken. He was taken immediately to the In- frmary. At the County Sessions held during the pre- sent week, the following Piisoners took tlieli"- trials, and w » re severally sentenced as under: — In the County Gaol.— Thomas Beggs aud James Gamble, chaiged with having stolen a quanti- ty of wheat) to be transported for seven years j two were acquitted and one discharged. In the County Bridewell.— James Burton, charged with deserting his family nnd leaving them chargeable upon the palish of Hathern, and John Dennis with running away and leaving hi* wife nnd family chargeable upon the parish of Loughborough, each to be imprisoned C months and kept to hard labour; Henry Steward and James Gregory, with liming extorted money under a false pretence and begging wiih afalse. petition, and other acts of Vagrancy tobeim- prisoned 1 ntil next Sessions, and kept to hard labour; John Read, with an assault, tobe im prisoned three months and kept to hard labrtsr ; Benjamin Glover, with beating and otherwise ill treating an infant child, which he was ad- judged to be the putative father of. John Stirk, with assaulting the constable of Sileby when in the execution ofhis office, and Wm. Scarbrow, with running away and leaving bis family chargeable upon the parish of Oadby, each to be imprisoned one month and kept to hard la- bour; John Cory the elder, charged with an assault upon the Headborough of Wallcott, when in the execution of his office, to be im- prisoned 14 days, and John Cory the younger, for the same offence, to be imprisoned 6 weeks end kept to hard labour. Ten were continued and 16 discharged. The following . lamentable instance of the consequences resulting front the. careless use of fire- arg^ s, occur red at Bristol on Saturday week: two respectable youths called at Mrs. Wilkin- son's, gunsmith. in St. Thomas- street, and upon asking to look at some pistols, one w as handed to them, which unfoitunately happened to Le loaded with ball. One of the young gentlemen, after lookii.: into the pan, and being satisfied that there was no powder in it, pulled the trig- ger, when the ball struck Mrs. V\ iliianrson in ths breast, and caused her immediate death.—. A coroner's inquest was held on the body, ar. d the Jury, after investigating the evidence, with* out hesitation, returned a \ erdict of— actidtnilil death. ADDRESS to SPRING.

When travelling alone, quite forlorn, nuhefrierided, Sweet the hope that to- merrovv my wandering will cease. That at home, th - n, with care sympathetic attended, I shall rest unmolested, and slumber iu peace. Or when from the friends of my heart long divided, The fond expectation with joy how replete! That from far distant regions, by Providence guided, To- morrow will see us most happily meet. When six days of labour, each other succeeding, With hurry aud tod have my spirits oppress'd, Wh it pleasure to think, as the last is receding, To morrow will be a sweet Sabbath of rest. And when the vain shadows of time are retiring, When- life is fast Heeling, and death is insight, The Christian, believing, exulting, expiring Beholds a to- morrow of endless delight. Cut, the Infidel, then !— he sees no tomorrow ! Yet he knows t.' iat his moments are hastening away;— Poor wretch! can he feel without heart rending sorrow, That his joys aud his life will expire with to- day: TO THE EDITOR. Game Laics.

UNITED ST A TES. To those who look with seriousness upon the affairs of the political world, it is of much in, ire importance t > trace the operation of good priii teifrles. than to mark the glaring, but transito- ry changes whi h some admire, and some fear too much : and it is particularly important to every man who feels as a citizen of tbe world, that good principles should strike root among the trans- Atlantic part of tbe family of man.— The United States are in progress to become a great power. The increase of her population, the abundant employment for it which her com- merce and agriculture afford : the reinforce- ments she is receiving, not only of physical strength, but of knowledge and art from Eu- rope, together with the natural magnificence, variety, and extent of her territory, must con- duit her to greatness. She must have not only the superior command in her own quarter of the globe, bi t also considerable influence in European politics, and she must have it quick- ly. For the case of the empire of the United States is totally different fiotn that of the old states of Europe. They had to commence from infancy: she has had her start from manhood. They all rose together from the mass of barbar- ism, deriving but scanty and slow aids from each other: America took her rise from > e country which bad already distanced the rest of Europe in Knowledge, liberty, " enterprise, and refinement. Her civil constitution bad not to grow up by tedious process, nor to sustain doubtful assaults. She bad not to furnish mar- tyrs either to civil or religious liberty. Her laws were received ready framed, and she ac- quired at once the benefits of the concentrated lights of the sages of jurisprudence, which, for ages, had l> een shining to a perfect day When s! i i began to exist as a state, she began her be- ing under a Protestant system of religion, the parent of liberty, morals, industry, and national strength, and bad not to rouse herself from the t - i'porarid lethargy, the corroding canker, the silent sap of the strength of nations which Pop- ery has ever been, and of which Catholic states are every where the examples. She was, there- fore, from the lirst, prepaied to receive all the benefit ofthe transmission of tbe improvements of Europe, She is little dependent upon her own authors, for tlk: books of the world flow, into her libraries; she is as little dependent upon native genius and invention, for the sci- ence and new arts of Europe are immediately 1 transmitted to her shores, and nothing is left but for her lo niake them known, and turn them to her advantage. As her rise has, from cir- cumstances, been rapid, so her progress must continue. In fact, she litis rather risen, and continues to rise, by being impelled upwards by the confluence of favourable circumstances, than advanced by her own energies It would be ridiculous to lament all this. It arises from circumstances which no power could arrest, and which no power ought to arrest, had it the ability. America must be great: but it depends upon herself to turn that greatness lo her own advantage, and that of tbe world. For she is not out of the reach of danger, or rather she is place I in the very mouth of it, by the conduct and principles of nb small part of her popula- tion. With ail the advantages America has de- rived from her intercourse with Europe, they have not been received without concomitant evils. Her republicanism prepared tbe mass of her people, violent and ignorant, like tbe populace of every other country, to receive the inoculation of European jacobinism. Their besoming parties to France and Bonaparte, operated with them as with tbe lowest of our factious, to blunt the sense of right and wrong applied to public aiiairs, and to raise a pas- sionate and malignant enmity to the old govern- ments of Euiope, and to none more than our own, because to us alone waa tiic interruption tif the destructive march of military jacobinism owing. The emigrations from Europe have been, in a vast number of instances, of per- sons rendered hostile to their own governments by the spirit of democracy, and, in. nlanv, ot men of no principle; infidels in religion ; jaco- bins in politics; tyrants in temper; broken in fortune ; and black with hatred of the country they were unworthy of. Many of these were, how ever, men of activity and plausible talents, ( so much the worse for the country they have empoisoned,) and not a few of them have got possession ofthe American press, and have at once secured themselves, gratified their own malignancy, and corrupted the American pop- ulace, by ministering to their worst passions.— The general character of America has, in pro- portion, suffered. There w as in tbe days of Washington, and preceding them, much of tbe spirit of the English gentry ; a nobleness and honour, which, though by no means now ex- tinct, are neither so apparent nor so influen- tial. It is not at all surprising, that the pros- pects now so tempting to American ambition should be too much for the genera! virtue. Pub- lic principles and morality have been dreadful- ly shaken and enervated, and the power of re- sistance diminished. If the good principles which remain should acquire new vigour, then the rising greatness of Amcrica may be equally beneficial to herself and to the world. Of this we regret to remark no symptoms. All file appearances seem ra- ther to indicate that they are not quite extinct, than that they are in healthy action. But the increase of the spirit of democracy, in the form in which it has long existed, affords no prospect of solid mid durable advantage to America.— ' I hey may give her temporary advantages, for who does not derive immediate advantage from roguery ? That honesty is the best policy, is a maxim which is only true as it takes in the ul- timate result, aud rogues are too short- sighted to look at that. The felon docs not, at first, pick up tbe haltci ; he picks up the money. Thus it is with nations. The immediate ad- vantages arising from a disregard of truth and justice, of bright and daylight proceeding, will dazzle an unprincipled populace : but the prin- ciples of a bad public policy have a fearful re- action upon domestic principles and interests, lay tbe foundation of internal disorder and cor- ruption, and, by an irresistible retribution, produce internal dissentions and weakness, which, at length, prostrate every country before some other rising and oppressed state. The very progress of the American States, if not bound up, in the process of advancement, by the firm bonds, the natural tonics of honour and integrity, is but a sw ifter progress to wretch- edness and dissolution. IMPORTANT TRIAL FOR SEDITION. CHESTER SPRING ASSIZES, APP. tl- 15, 1819. Before Serjeants Copley and Marshall. The King, versus J. Johnson, S. Drumnyind, and J. Bagnley, for Sedition. THE CHARGE. That the Prisoners, with others, did unlaw- fully conspire, assemble, incite, and stir up cer" fain individuals against the Government and Constitution, at a meeting beld Hear to Stock- port, on the 1st of September last, at which were present from 3000 to 4000 people assembled, under a pretence of petitioning Parliament for a Reform in tbe Commons House of Parliament. That the three prisoners mounted on a stage to address the people, derided monarchy, recom- mended to go with arms to obtain what they had demanded, nnd recommended a National Convention. If they do not attend to the peti- tion, you are to consider the Nation as your Re- presentatives, that they should arm themselves against the tyrants, and use force to force. The Attorney General stated the charges against the prisoners, with great candour aud liberality. Seven witnesses were examined on behalf of tbe Prosecution, namely, Mr. William Boul- ter, ( certainly nbe ofthe best evidences we ever beard .-) Mr. John Livesay, Mr. John Horatio Lloyd ( who stated the facts which had come to his knowledge with great perspicuity,) Mr. Ramskirk, Mr. James Coppack, Mr. Ralph Fogg, and Sir. Thomas Robinson. Their testimony disclosed one of Hie most ag- gravated cases of conspiracy and sedition, that ever claimed the attention of a Jury. The ha- rangues of these inob orators were made lo about 5000 people, at a place called Saudy Brow, near Stockport, and they bad chosen a period when the spinners and weavers were " off" for wages, to forward their insidious and revolut. onary schemes. They were mounted on V age, eight or nine feet high. A man named Harrison, was the Chairman ; be declared ( in his opening speech) the people of England as being run down at the point of cavalry swords and Cnstlereagh bayonets; be invited tlie mob to petition for a redress of their grievances, and if not successful iu that way, to obtain their rights by force. Baguley then stepped forw ard. He reprobated the apathy of the people, eulo- gized Tom Paine, and abused the Magistrates. He said a National Conv ention should be form- ed, modelled from that of France—, hat tbe whole country should proceed with petitions to London ; tlnut the Delegates should not wait ( br the tedious forms of the House of Commons, but go directly to the Speaker's chair, and insist on their demands being granted ; if they w ere not attended to, the Convention was then to act. and the existing Government be destroyed !— Johnson said the men nt Derby had been mur- dered ; and that Government had v. i ittcn to the Clergymen of that county, who bad packed a Jury to convict them. He added, " O ! that I had a sw ord large enough to strike off the heads ofaUtejiints;" and gave the names of Lords " SlumOTtli and Custlereagh, and Mr. Canning, whom he termed " rascals."— He observed be was fearless of consequences, and begged he might be particularly understood, for he would say it fearlessly, that whenever an opportunity offered he would blowout their bruins, and be would as Boon do so as get bis dinner and a bot- tle of wine with it I He then recommended the weavers not to go to work nt the old wages, and told tlicui if they were not satisfied in their de- mands, to burn their looms I Sooner than return lo work, he said, be would rob, and plunder, aye, even murder ; and put a pistol to the head, if he died on tbe gallow s! John Horatio l. loyd stuJent at Oxford, was at the meeting; 3000 and upw ards of people were there; saw Harrison in the chair: Baguley and Drummond. Harrison ( irst addressed the meet- ing; Baguley spoke afterwards; and then Druiumoud took minutes ( produced them to the Court.) Harrison spoke of the doctrine of re- sistance; Drunimoud spoke of mal- adniinistia- tion of Government, increase of the National Debt only to support the Royal Family ; Drum- inond continued, " We have now not only one Tyrant, but we have Commons, Lords, and Kings." Baguley said," 1 can rioiny duty. whe- ther by sword in band or otherwise. Drummond stigmatised the masters of factories? Rouse yourself Jfroin this pernicious lethargy. This was tiie last time they would meet to disenss tho question ; the next time they mii'st act— Liberty or Dealb. Johnson began in a violent manner, nnd spoke loudly; spoke of his long imprison- ment, and the next time they came must be with • swords in their hands.— Oh I that 1 had a sword large enough to strike off the beads of all the tyrants in the land. Some I will name, Castie- reagh, Sidmouth, and Canning. The prisoners called no witness in their de- fence; but Mr. Williams, their Counsel, spoke 2 hours and - 15 minutes. The Chief Justice summed up in a most im- partial and masterly manner. His Lordship observed, the question was entirely one of fact— and he entreated the Jury to dismiss from their minds all prejudice against the prisoners, and give their verdict on the evidence only. The Jury, in less than a minute, found the Prisoners— GUILTY. MEMOIRS OF KOTZEBUE. M. Kotzcbue, was the son of a Counsellor of Legation of tbe Duchy of Weimar. Having be- come at the age of 20, private secretary to Ge- neral Baur, one of the best informed military men of Russia, lie gained the good will of the Empress Catherine, for whom be composed some pieces which were acted at tbe theatre of the Hermitage. Induced by a romantic attachment, he married a Noble Russian Lady. He was quickly raised to the situation of President of the Civil Government at Revel in Esthonia, and to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, and was de- corated with the insignia of several orders. The independence of his principles caused him in 1795, to send in his resignation. He accepted in 1796, the oflice of manager of the theatre at Vienna, but was soon disgusted with a situation surrounded by embarrassments and unpleasant- ness. On his return to Russia, in the spring of 1800, he was arrested on the frontier of the em- pire, and conducted to Kurgan, a pretty little town in Siberia, where he enjoyed full liberty, and he caused bis pieces to be actcd by the in- habitants. His numerous friends soon removed all impressions against him from the mind of the Emperor, Paul I. and this Monarch recall- ed him to Court, and heaped favours on him,— Dining the lirst years of Alexander's reign, be travelled through France, Italy, and Germany, and afterwards, apparently, fixed his residence at Berlin, where he undertook the management of a Journal; but after some years. having given cause of displeasure to Bonaparte, he retired thence to a small estate which he possessed in Esthonia. Admiration and hatred did not fail to pursue him even to bis rural retreat. While tho thunders of the Moniteur, were hurled against him, tbe Agricultural Society of London sent him some farming implements, and the English Admiral, commanding in the Baltic, permitted the present of peace to pass unmo- lested. M. Kofzcbue took part in the manifestoes and diplomatic notes of the Russian Cabinet, published in 1811 and 1812. Tbe Emperor Alexander recompensed him by naming him at first, inl813, Consul General atKonigsberg; and afterwards, in 1816, by connecting him with the departments of Foreign Affairs, and Councillor of State. His delicate health not being suited to the climate of Russia. the Emperor permitted him, in the year 1817, to travel as much as he pleased in Germany, and at the same time pre- served for him all his appointments, on the sole condition of his sending a regular report on the state of literature and morals, atd on the politi- cal character of the country. Having received information of the fanatical rage excited against him in the Universities, he sent fo require bis passports to Russia, when be was prevented by assassination. He was but fifty- eight years old, although the public supposed him much older, from the numerous writings which he published ( lining the last forty years. He was twice mar- ried, and has left fourteen children ; the eldest of whom is a Captain in the Austrian Service; another son, M Otto de Kotzebue, in a Lieute- nant in the Russian Navy, and has already ren- dered himself remarkable by his voyage around the world- A third son, Maurice, an Officer iu the Russian Army, published some time ago an interesting account of the Russian Embassy in Persia, to which he was attached. Thus the talents of the children seem prepared to render the name as illustrious as it had been made by the father. The German Journals continue to express their feelings of horror and amazement at th ; horrible assassination, which ferocity and fanaticism have committed. | Club ; but lie killed the next 17, and missed the last bird.
