Leeds COURT OF COMMON PLEAS, DUBLIN, APRIL 21. HEM < TION. BlROlI V. MhR EDITH. This case, which excited a very lively inte- r - st, came on to be tried this day, before Lord iSrrrbury, and a most respectable special jury. Mr. Bnrrowes, in a most pathetic address, laid the plaintitl's case before the jury; and Mr. Gradu replied on b< half of the defendant. There was but one w itness called, Sarah Birch, daugh- ter ofthe plaiutilf, and the object ofthe action, a veiy pretty interesting English ifirl. of 19 years of age, and apparently, extremely fasci- nating in her milliners and address. She under- went a long and minute examination. The fol- lowing- is a sketch of » he leading facts of the case, as developed in evidence. The plaintiff was the proprietor of an hotel in the small town of Broadstairs, Ramsgate, within half a mile of which his daughter Sarah resided, at the house of her Aunt, a respectable lady : she had two sisters older than herself. one e. f whom had been married to a gentleman of fortune, the other to aCaptaiu in the Navy. In tho month of Augnst, 1815. the ( kfc Kiaut, a young Irish gentleman under age, who had lately become, by the death of his father, the owner of an estate of 4 or £ 5000 a year, arriv- ed at the plaintiff's hotel iu a barouche and four, and having seen the plaintiff's daughter, then but fifteen years of age, at her father's, where • he some times wentof messages from her aunt, and being struek with her personal charms, he soon effected an acquaintance with her. After a few interviews, he contrived one evening to iiiduce her to t ike a drive in his barouehe: but she findinghc was taking advantage of her ex- treme youthix. inexperience, when he had driven her- about the distance of 2 miles, get alarmed, end itsked him where he was taking her to. He gave her an evasive answer; renewed promises of nwjiajt ft had mad a. to her before,. aud continued driving on until they arrived, at 11 o'clock at night., 30 miles from Broadstairs, where they alighted ; aud after supping, they retired to their respective rooms. While the young lady, however, was in the act of locking her door, the defendant made his way in, and in despite of her remonstrances, completed her ruin. After taking her to different places in England, they went to London, and stopped at Batt's Hotel, Dover- street, where they were pursued by her brother, who, however, did not succeed either in rescuing his sister from her seducer, or obtaining satisfaction for the injury he had done her family. The defendant made his protege disguise he self in the dress of a housemaid, and contrived to avoid being taken up by the police officers, who were brought for that purpose by her brother. He then cam © over to Ireland, and after stopping at one or two places for a short time, he took a house for her at Ranelagh. where She was confined in July, 1S16. of a boy. who was called after his father, Joshua Paul Meredvth. Hitherto, and for some time longer, the defendant treated her with kindness, although of a very jealous dis- posi ion, so much so, that for sixteen tiionths she was in that house she was never permitted to cross the threshold. In August, 1817, he drew a kind of will, in the shape of a letter mi- serably ill written and spelt, in which he men- tioned her with great affection, and settled all his disposable property on her and her child, whom he confided to her guardianship. How- ever, his affection af length fbated. and his con- duct towards her changed; and she stated, that he even heat her cruelly. He sent a friend of his to tell her, at last, that he must part fpm her, as he was going to get married, and had therefore taken lodgings in town for her. her. child, and a couple of servants, And would set- tle an annuity of-£ 200 upon her. and give her a sum of money in hand. This promise, however, he did not think fit to perform, and she remov- ed to her new abode with no more limn five shillings in h< r pocket. Here she remained for several months, without his coming near her, or giving her any money for her support; ex cept oil one occasion thatshe went to him atan hotel in Capel- strecf, when hegave her a pound note, and on another, after an interval of si me weeks, when he gave her two pounds. She was consequently compelled to pawn her watch, seals, pelisse, anil several other articles even to her childs frocks, to enable her to procure the scanty means of sustaining life The witness, in stating this, pulled the duplicate out of her V. purse, at which tfife learned couanel who was* examining her ( Ms. Goold j was so much affect- ed ae. to be unable to refrain from shedding tears; as for the wretched girl herself, she, at different periods of. her examination, wept bit terly, and indeed, every body in court, appear- ed deeply to deplore the fatal indiscretion that had reduited this lovely young creature to such premature misery.. . , j. In charging the jury, the noble judge, offer deprecating the conduct of " the spoiler, who could first rob the ro?-> of all its sw eets, and then fling it, like a loathsome weed away," asked, what must be the feelings of the parents at los- ing bucli a child ; whose education, it was plain from her deportment on the table, was far from having been neglected, even at flic tender age at which she had fallen. His lordship was so overpowered by his feelings, that be w as oblig- ed to stop and weep for several minutes before he could proceed. He concluded by cautioning the jury against suffering themselves to be led' away by their feelings as he had been by his; at the some time to mark their sense of the de- fendant's conduct, by awarding suoh damages as would show, that crimes of this nature were not to pass unpunished.

He trusted that all would be brought under the common roof of the Constitution- thai all would be allowed to worship God ac- cording to their, conscience without subjecting tileal to civil disabilities. The Petitioners claim- ed the common law right of eligibility— they claimed no fantastic rights. They submitted the light of eligibility ought to be restored. If it were refused, they said, a case of delinquency opght to be established against them before they were required to make out tbeir innocence. They did not deny the right of Parliament to deprive particular classes of certain privileges conditionally, but they did deny the right of Parliament to prescribe how they should wor- ship God.— This, however, had- been done. A Ilouian Catholic had been deprived of civil rights, because he wnuU not lay perjury to his soul; and the restoration of them was refused on the ground that they disregarded their oaths The exclusion was not partial, it continued without a sufficient case being made out against the body. He maintained that theCatholicliad been deprived of bis common law, because he would not abjure his religion ; that had been • done for w hich a Judge, werehe taaetso^ would bo liable to impeachment. And what was re- sorted to in support of this conduct? The di- vide authority of the Roman Catholic Religion was denied, as was the effect of the oaths made in its faith. The resultof divine revelation had been, w hat be spoke with horror— the idolatry and perfidy of human nature. Protestanism had been remembered— but alas! the gospel had been forgotten. The great Redeemer came to promote the love of God and the love of man, li-. it the,. latter they denied. They denounced the greater part of Europe on account of its Popery, and thus they renounced what their religion Imposed— the love of their fellow crea- tures. And it now became a question, whe- ther tliey should continue to exclude the Roman Catholics • from the benefits of their Constitu- tion. The charge against them was their im- morality— that they did not believe in oaths. Why they did not believe in the charge, their various aots proved it.—( Hear.) The Hon. ^ Mcinbcr concluded with moving for a commit* tcc. to enquire into the state of tfie laws affecting the Roman Catholics, particularly as far as re- garded the oaths required of them previously to JOe enjoyment of civil offices. Mr Crvterin a speech of great length warmly seconded the motion. For the motion, 2tl Against it, 243 - Majority against the motion.. 2 Adjourned at a quarter to two. The manner in which the debate terminated, waft certainly not. expected. After the Speaker Jiad put the question, which was negatived," the Noes having it, Mr Peel and Mr Plunkettboth offered themselves to the attention of the House amidst the post violent calls for the Question, and a k> ng discussion arose, we understand, w hether tliese Gentlemen' could be heard or not. It was at length decided, that the nega- tive vote having been given, no Member could afterwards speak to the question, and that the • observations to tire order of the House could only he delivered in the w ay of advice to the Speaker, by the Member sitting and covered. A division then took place, when the numbers ap- peared- to be, for the Committee, 242; against it, 24;!. On dcclaiingtbeseuumbersatthe table, Mr. Croker, one of the tellers, stated that it was his duty to report to the House, that during the discussion w hich had taken place on the point of order, some Members hud irregularly entered the House, whose votes must, therefore, be dis- allowed, and accordingly it was decided, that tlio names of Lords W orcester and Rooksavage, Mr. Banks, . Mr, Ure, and Gen. Porter, were struck oil' from the noes, and that of Lord Forbes from the ayes. It is asserted, however, by the opponents of Catholic Emancipation, that about 40 more Members were in readiness to vote against the question: but tbey were taken by surprise. It was not expected that a division would take place till Lord Castlercagb, Mr. l'eel, Mr. Canning. Sir W. Scott, Mr Plunketi, ami otliers had spoken. , An Account lias been laid before the House cfCbmmons of the total weekly anjount of Bank notes and Bank Post- bills in circulation, sincc ". the last return, on the 19th of January, 1819, to the 2Vth of April, 1819 inclusive. The greatest finouut is that of April 20, £ 27,456,900; the lowest, that of April 8, £ 24,409,770. Hence, we see that, within the short period of 14 days, Between the 6th and 2t th of April, there were three millions withdrawn from circulation ;— a l'act v\ hich may help in some measure to account for the extreme pecuniary distress experienced among commercial men a few weeks ago.— Within the last week the amount in circulatign has cuercased to £ 26,776,410.

Suppression of Vagrancy. npHE Mayor and Magistrates of the Borough .1 of Leicester, pursuant to their intentions publicly announced a short time ago, having now formed an establishment which has for its object the suppression of PUBLIC BKUGIXC, take leave to call the serious attention of the Inhabitants to the subject. Vagrancy and Mendicity tiave long been consi- dered the source of much moral and public- evil, and many Statutes have, from time to time, been j passed with a view to suppress them: but it has- been found that no Laws, however. severe or salu- tary, can materially check their progress.— This crime has, on the contrary, of late years, increased in such an alarming degree, as to shew that without the aid and co- operation of the Inhabitants in gen- eral, little good ran be effected by the authority vested in the hands of the Magistrates. They there- fore call upon their Fellow Townsmen, to lend their assistance towards suppressing this increasing evil, by refusing to give relief to all public beggars of what- ever description, and by giving information against Impostors, in order that they tuny be pmished. Institutions for the suppression of Vagrancy and Mendicity have already been established at Kendal, Leeds, and other populous towns: and the experi- ence of those places has shewn the great advantage of them, both as regards the comf i ts of really de- serving objects, and the correction ot those of a different character. It may, indeed, be asserted with great truth, ( in th* language of a Publication on this subject at Leeds) " That this institution is " by no means intended to harden the heart of Man " against his fellow- man, nor to dry up tbeSprings " of Charity from the worthy apd necessitous poor; " but rather to provide a medium through which " benevolent streams may be directed to objects " that are in real need; it being intended as a mean " that shall discriminate between the clamours ot " systematic beggars, and the friendless objects of misfortune; that shall kindly alleviate the pangs "' of veal misery, and, if possible, reclaim, or at least " deter, tiie able bodied and idle stroller from Va- " grancy and Mendicity." Nor is it any small recommendation to the present plan, that it seconds in a very important degree, the objects of that excellent Institution, the Fever House, wlii'h has been lately established ill this town. It was asserted at Leeds 1 and the state- " mentvvas corroborated by the Physicians of the " House ot Recovery, that two tlurds of the cases of. T. ijphus Fever admitted in that ht> « se could be clear- •' ly traced to the Common. lj> dging- howes " Tile pre- sent establishment will annihilate most " of tUase sinks of infection and vice; and the few Lodging- houses which will be permitted to remain, will be under the immediate inspection and superintend- ence of the manager of the Vagrant Office. The funds necessary for the support of this estab- lishment will be provided out of the Poor Rates of the several juirishes, iu certain proportions which have been already agieeil upon:— and the Magis- trates feel great pleasure in stating,. that one impor- tant feature of the measure is, thai it is likely to be as economical as it will be salutary. This has been clearly demonstrated at those places where similar1 Institutions have b- en established during the last year or two : for, " when the system is properly or- ganized, none but thereully travelling ami deserving poor will apply ;" whereas hitherto, Vagrants of all characters and descriptions have been relieved almost indiscriminately : in fuct, the impudent ami clamorous beggar ha » had the advantage over the more modest and deserving. iliiv i| ig made these observations with the view of e gibimng the nature and object ot the Institution, ••; of shewing the benefits likely to result from it, u remains only to state the regulations, & e. under which it is intended to be conducted, and which it is necessary should be. strictly attended to. 1st.— A House catled the " VAGRANT OFFICE" is taken in the Cank street, two doors from the shop of Mr. John Gray, baker, who is appoint ed Agent or Manager, under the superintend- ence of the Mayor and Magistrates for the time being. All strangers begging and applying for relief are to be referred to ' his office to be examined. An accurate description of their persons & c. will be registered, according to a prescribed form, and to such as appear proper objects, relief will be given : those who may appear Impostors, or undeserving objects, will be carried before a Magistrate and be proceed- ed against under the Vagrant Acts, if thought proper. 2nd.- To give effect to the above regulation, 110 re- lief should be given by any Inhabitant or other person to Vagiants or Strolling Beggars, but all should be sent to the Vagrant Office. 3rd The Inhabitants are rsquested to giveTickets ( with which they may be . supplied on applica- tion at the^ Vagrant Office) to all strangers so licltingCharity; which tickets will entitle the bearers, on appling at the Vagrant Office, to every attention that their cases and circum- stances mar require; and every person found begging after receiving such a ticket, will be proceeded against under the Vagrant Acts. If any Inhabitant should happen not to have any ticket ready to deliver, a verbal direction may be given to the Vagrant to apply at the Vagrant Office 4th.— All Keepers of Common Lodging Houses, except those under the superintendence of the Agent of the Vagrant Office, who shall hereafter har- bour or take in Beggars or Vagrants of any de- scription, w ill be prosecuted for the penalty of 40s. for every Vagrant tliey may so harbour or take info their houses 5th. The Constables and Headborougbs are particu- larly called upon to be very vigilant in appre- hending all Vagrants who shall lie hereafter found begging within the Borough or its li- berties. 6th.— Ill order the more effectually, to keep the town free from Vagrants, and to prevent improper lodging- house keepers from harbouring them, the Magistrates have determined to issue Privy Search Warrants more frequently than heretofore. 7 th.— The Magistrates pledge themselves to enforce, the Vagrant Laws against, all such as shall prove to be Impostors, sturdy beggars, or otherwise undeserving objects of Charity; aud they rely upon the Inhabitants to give prompt informs ti » n against all characters of that description who may apply at their houses, or be found in the streets..

SIR} IN consequence of the Honorable Member for Shrewsbury, having stated his intention, on Thursday the - 28th of January last, of bringing iu a Bill after Easier, for the better regulating the LICENSING of PUBLIC HOUSES, T had anx- iously hoped, that with yotlr permission, some one, far more able than myself would have at- tempted, through tho medium olyottr extensive- ly circulated Pnper, to address a few observa- tions to my brother Publicans. at this import- ant crisis, when their dearest interests are about to be submitted to the considerations of the Le- gislature, for the revision, and probably for the complete alteration of the present mode of Li- censing Victuallers. The important necessity of the subject has long been acknowledged, and it will be found no easy task to devise enactments to provide against the number of existing evils, also the deepest penetration will be required to avoid creating greater. Many of the Honorable Mem- bers, and even the Magistrates themselves, are the friends who will generously assist its. in breaking those shackles that have been so long ami patiently borne by every licensed Victualler. — Surely, at least it is our duty to endeavour to assist in pointing out the besi means to accom- plish sc desirable an under taking, therefore let us, to a ma. , endeavour to trace the existing evils, and try to point out the best remedy to Correet them, to add to our own respectability, and rescue our injured country from the odium of possessing upwards of forty thousand trades- men, v. ho, although they ate carrying on trade annually to the amount of many millions of pounds, are totally excluded, in the nineteenth century from a Trial by Jury, the grand Palla- dium of British Liberty. Surely . ben no time ought to be lost, when it is recollected that we arc a body of men dis- persed all over the kingdom, and it will not be possible for us to communicate our views to each olher in a few days. Let us turn our im- mediate attention to the subject, as one month hence our property, nay every tiling dear to our lives, may unintentionally receive an irrecover- able shock, or if well directed, as Heaven grant it may, we shall be rendered comparatively happy. I sincerely hope Meetings will be held in eve'y pait of the kingdom, for the purpose of communicating with each other, that this im- portant subject may meet with a cool and dis- passionate deliberation, fiee from all party views, then, and not till then, may tho po r Publican hope to exult and smile, undei the benign influence of British Law s, the envy of Mtrrouudiug nations. S 15 Licensed Victualler. April 12, ISl'>. all wliosegoods and commodities are exempt from search. But, as a precedent has beep quot- ed, I may just be permitted to hint, that it v, iil not exactly apply. The precedent isthatofthe l/ otter. tot Venus, who was imported into this country some years ago. and exhibited to the curiosity of the Public, for a certain o- aljtif in which, in a decent Newspaper, I can only say, she has not left her equal behind! But this was a case so very opposite to the present, that I am surprised any resemblance should be dis- covered, This Hottentot Venus was not coil cealed from the Public; she was made a public show of: and therefore, the ouiy question be- fore the Learned Bench, then was, whether site showed her arm by her own consent, and whether she ought not to have a certain per ren- tage upon such exhibition, proportioned to its magnitude ? Now, the case is surely differ- ent here, and his Excellency doe3 no more than any prudent husband or parent, when be arrives in a country, where gay men and gal- lants are sometimes too plenty and too artful for domestic peace, would do ; and to interrupt any such husband or parent, in this his care and concern, would, in my humble opinion, be an attack on that very system of liberty in which we pride ourselves. His Excellency has alrea- dy, we are told, remonstrated against the im- pertinent curiosity of the Parisian public; and if he is to be assailed by us, in our graverforms of law, he may well exclaim, as in a song which I remember Quick bung with great humour 40 years ago. " Zounds! That an old man can't keep a chicken I <' A snug tit- bit for his own private picking." But in spite of all I can advance, public cu- riosity is at present so ftsni. that I have no doubt every expedient will be made use of to gratify it. This law- motion is only the first. We shall probably hear soon of more. It is thought that some new Member of Parliament, who has no other way of distinguishing himself, will pro- cure a petition from the fair stranger, and move for a Committee of the whole House, to inspect, fcc; Some talk of the probability of a fire, or hn alarm of fire; and some of a bit of a riot and assault in the Ambassor's house, in which ease the Lady may be sub- poencd. All these are no doubt extravagant expedients; but what n ill not some people 8o to gratify their curiosi- ty ! Have we forgot what Lady Alary Wortley Montague did to obtain a peep into the Serag- lio! Much the same that a zealous Physician did, who, in order to acquire a knowledge of the plague, sailed on board a ship « vith a foul bill And if individuals make such sacrifices, merely to gratify curiosity, what may not be ex- pected from a whole Public, a London Public, increased in its numbers and its anxieties, by the usual influx of country cousins at this sea son ?

COCKNEY CUI7I0SITY. THE E A lit CIRCASSIAN. Jo the Editor oj the London Packet. SIR, A Paper of Saturday last, with very just and patriotic feeling, seems to deplore that the at- tention of the Public, at this very critical time should be drawn oil'by the expected Report of the lliuh Committee, from the more important t< nsideratitiii ofthe motion to be made tonight respecting Catholic Emancipation. And I agree with the writer of the article alluded to, that it is rather unfortunate that two such questions should press upon our consideration at one and the same time, although I am most decidedly ofopitiioc that they differ very greatly in im- portance ; and that whether the Bank pays in gold or paper, is of no consequence whatever, com- pared to the admission of Roman Catholics to a share of political power. But the writer. who has suggested this thought may rest assured that there is another topic which presses more strongly on public attention p. t present, than either Popery, or Cash- pay- ments, fires in Smithfield. or loans at theStook Exchange— and that topic. Sir, is the Fair Cir- cassian. Go where you will, into streets, squares, orallej3, intopii ; <* or public houses. taverns, touts, assemblies, grand dinners, or Cabinet dinners, you hea. nothing but an unceasing and incessant anxiety to see the Fair Cureas- sit. n. So exquisite is this anxiety, so intolerable this curiosity, that aU manner of expedients are meditated to procure by foree, what it ap- peal's, cannot be obtained by favour; and, as we profess to live in a free country . where every tiling is first attempted under colour of law, we tire told of a clever fellow, who is determined to immortalize himself by moving the Court of King's Bench, iu favour of this Fair Circassian upon the ground that no Slave, the moment she sets fool on this land of liberty, is any longer a- slave ; and, therefore, this learned Gentleman wishes to ask her, in a public Court, whether it is her free will and pleasure to be thus coo- fined from the sight of mankind, reasoning, no doubt, upon right English principles, that no woman would be to confined, unless by force. I shall not enter into the legal merits of such a. motion, nor inquire whether it may not inter- fere with the privileges of theHiplomaticBody, Lord John Russell has published, " A Letter on Foreign Politics," addressed to Lord Holl- and. Of the political research displayed in the work, and of its general style, the following sketch of the Netherlands will present a fan specimen:— The only change, of importance which Lord Castlereagh made in the project sketched by Mr. Pitt, in 1S05, was to give the Netherlands to Holland instead of Prussia Whether the original plan was a good one may be doubted ; but the merit ofthe alteration is still more equi- vocal. A proposition of joining the Netherlands to Holland was made to William III. but he rejected if, says Burnet, on account of the dif- ference of religions opinions, and he seems to have acted with his usual knowledge and judg- ment. The Belgians require their Government to be strictly Roman Catholic and intolerant; the Dutch « ish no less for a Protestant King and general toleration. Nor is this the only difference— the Belgians wish the land to be free from taxes ; the Dutch will bear of no du- ties upon commerce. The Belgians ure accus- tomed to use the French language; the Dutch will not be governed except ia Dutch. The. Bel- gians despise the Dutch as a covcteus. unpolish- ed. unfeeling people; the Dutch despise the Belgians as an ignorant, stupid, bigotted race. — The Belgians, in fact, wish to return to the French Government, and in the scramble for the patronage of the combined Crown, they are not able to contend with the superior ability and information of their neighbours. In 1810, of eight Ministers of State only one was a Bel- gian; of twenty- eight diplomatic agents, one: of eighty- live Generals, sixteen, & e. so that of one hundred and sixty- nine ofthe first employ ments of Government, the Belgians had only thirty. Add to this, that the Belgians are oblig- ed to pay taxes for the interest of the Dutch debt, and the repairs of the Dutch dikes. It may easily he believed, that amongst the dis- contents which this arrangement has occasion- ed, the Government cannot hold a very steady course. The Sovereign authority is exercised neither w ith the youthful vigour of a new. nor the prescriptive majesty of an old Government. And what shall we say to this limited Monar- chy, in which the King by his first act abolish- ed Trial by Jury, and named his own Chamber of Deputies? Or to a Parliament, of which the Members rail at one another in different lan- guages! Where a Belgian Deputy, who pro- poses a financial question, is completely foiled, by the unintelligible reply of a Dutch Clancel- lorof the Exchequer? Where one half of the liouse do not understand the ether half. till they see their speeches translated in the newspapers ofthe following day? " If the internal Government of this country wants stability its external situation is not more secure. Flanders, said Sir W. Temple, is not of a size to support a large army . nor of a figure to be defended by a small one. The union with Holland has not added much to its military strength. The Dutch foree is chiefly naval, and the colonies require a large nnmber of troops. The present army of the kingdom consists of 40,000 regulars, and 60,000 militia. Even with the additions which may bo made in time of ward hey will not be more than sufficient to gar- rison the'fortresses. Austria and Spain will no longer empty thrir treasures to support Fland crs. The only Power from w hich money and men- can be expected, will be England. " We have here an instance of tw o nations posse ssir. g no natural attraction, but rather a a very great repulsion to cach other, pounded together in the great mortar of the chemists of Vienna. What is to result from the mixture of two equal parts of Catholic bigotry, and Pro- testant freedom, of land and commerce, of French and Dutch, of polished stupidity and vulgar talent, of natural servility and ancient love of freedom, no man can guess. It may be supposed, however, that one of the parts will fly off as soon as it can join any foreign maltet.—• And this is the kingdom which is considered by all foreigners as raised out of deference to Eng- land, at the special demand of Lord Cas- tlereagh!" In the same vein Lord John review s the state of Prussia, of Saxony, of Russia, of Austria, of Bavaria, Baden, & c. of Italy, and lastly of France ; and he concludes his review of the transactions of Congress iu the following terms:— " He who has read the foregoing pages can- not be at a loss to discover ihe causes of the unpopularity of England on ; he Continent. It was supposed that she was the friend of right, and the patron of that liberal Constitution which has been the foundation of her own glory. In- stead of this, she has been found the follower and the tool of the great Continental Monarchs; assisting their spoliations, and confirming their destructions of free Governments; violating promises solemnly given, and conditions offered in the fall plentitude of success ; pursuing her course, totally regardless of the cries and sup- plications of the people of Europe ; and after this she has joined the same Monarchs in their profanation of the names of religion and mora- lity. whose precepts they have never consulted. It will be said, perhaps, that England was not able by herself to protect the rights and inde- pendence of nations ; but if so, in God's name why did she interfere? Why is the name ofthe English Minister to be affixed to every act of injustice and tyranny which is performed in Eu- rope? What deadly enemy of England's hon- ourable reputation persuaded Lord Castlcreagh that the repose of the world depended on the slavery of Saxony and Genoa? " It would be difficult, I imagine, to give an answer to these questions. It is clear that Eng- land might have appeared as the member of a confederacy to oppose France, without sancti- oning any of these acts of pillage by " which the deliverance of Europe has been disgraced. If she was not able to prevent those acts, she need not have soiled her fair fame by appearing to countenance them. " It would be impertinent in me to pretend to point out to you what principles should guide the future policy of England. But at the same time I cannot conclude this letter without reca- pitulating the arguments and facts contained in it...— It appears, { lien, from what has been stat- ed, that the old system of the balance of power which governed the wars and treaties of Europe from the fifteenth century to the year 1818, has now been exchanged for another, which may be called the system ofthe Holy Alliance— that this system is one of general antl mutual guaranty of all the Governments now subsisting on the Continent— that this system docs not afford any security against the preponderance of any one state, inasmuch as any great accession of terri- tory to one of the powers, must be agreed to by the rest, for fear of provoking insurrections and revolutions; that it does not afford any security for the rights and privileges of the people of any state, since we see that those rights, even when ratified in the face of the Congress, as in the case of Saxony, or guaranteed by the Congress itself, as in the case of Genoa, are subject to violation and destruction. And whilst other powers derive many advantages from the Am- pbictyonic Council, England, who used to hold the balance of power, is losing her fair fame and sullying lier former pure character. So that the Emperor of Russia, the Conqueror of Finland, has get praised for liberality, whilst England, the protector of Spain, is blamed for injustice. Such facts prove beyond a doubt, that whilst wc maintain the faith of treaties, and shew our- selves tbe determinate friend of peace, we should keep aloof from meetings of Sovereigns, and auctiois of subjects." FRANCE. The most important feature in the late intel- ligence from France, is the discussions in its legislature on the great subject, the liberty of the press. Nothing more fully than this brings the wisdom of statesmen to the test, and by no- thing more certainly are the real views of vio- lent political parties made manifest. All theo- ry is in favour of the unrestricted liberty of pub- lishing the thoughts of men on every subject.— When the question is considered abstractedly, we know of nothing which can be forcibly urg- ed against it. Knowledge is the result of judg- ment. judgment can only be formed by compa- rison and deduction. Every kind of materials ought, therefore, to be furnished to the judg- ment by which to conduct its operations, and ought to be communicated w ithout reservation or partiality. Again; as man depends on man, reciprocal duties arise between the giver and the receiver. He who is benefited by another, ought to benefit him in return, if in his power. He who receives knowledge from the mighty mental operation of the minds ofmcn in all ages ought, in return, if it be in his pow er, to add to the common stock for the benefit of fulure generations, in grateful return for what he has received from those who have lived before hint; and on what principle of right can any govern- ment interpose to annul this obligation, or pre- vent the payment of this debt of gratitude?— Further it may be added, that great geniuses are born for the world. Men have a kind of property in them, and what human power can claim the light to extinguish the lights of ge- nius, and deprive the world of the benefit ofits inspirations, bceauseitmaj happen to pursue reasoning to results which may he neither con- venient to the interests nor grateful to the pre- judices of the power thus interposing ? Were legislatures infallible judges of truth and error, it might be argued, such an interposition w ould be necessary, because, as truth must always have greater evidence than error, it must ulti- mately work conviction in the minds of the pub- lic, who will then be more attached to truth when they admit it upon their own convictions, rather than on some authority ; and if legisla- tures, on the contrary, are fallible judges, then the evil of legal interposition is. that truth may be very often suppressed, or fail to crown itself with victories over error, because error will pos- sess, when taken under the patronage of go- vernments, the vantage ground in the combat. But, however plausible all this, and much more which mightbe said on the same side, may appear, experience has proved, that they are principles not reducible to practice at all in many instances, and, even when applied, are of very mischievous operation. In all wellcon- stituted states, and especially in our own, the liberty of writing and publishing has always been under control. The liberty has rested upon the acknowledged truth of the general principles just mentioned, and the control has arisen from a necessity of the case, resulting from the actual condition of society. With us, therefore, the benefits of this kind of liberty have been fully enjoyed, and the effects made obvious in the advancing knowledge and virtue of the community ; the ill effects of unrestrain- ed license have been prevented by making the uttering of thought, in many cases, criminal and punitive, and thus have civil order, reli* gion, and private character been guarded and preserved. That the theoretic principles above mention- ed cannot be, to iheir full extent, applied in the practice of good government, must be clear enough to any who have any thing in view in such discussions except the purposes of faction or a silly tenacity as to some favourite Utopian dream. Their fallacy, as unrestricted rules of practice, lies in this, that they assume three things which, in most eases, do never occnr.— The first is, that men are all lovers of truth. and dispassionate inquirers after it. This is as much as to say, that all men arc virtuous, and it would be no less ridiculous to form laws for the regu- lation Of manners, on the assumption that men are universally disposed to good morals, as laws for the. press; on that of their being universally disposed to truth. The second thing assumed by the theorists Is, that there shall always be as many writers on the side of truth as <.(' error, when it may possibly happen that nincy errors maybe published, and of a very pernicious kind, when there shall be no writers of equal power to expose them, or not bold enough to attempt it This may. surely, oectr, and a go vernmentis not to suffer the religion and morals and civil duties ofits subjects to lie ttqder the contingency that able writers may be found suc- cessfully to advocate them before the public.— It is, thirdly, supposed, that there are no pet - sons in a community cif weak understanding, no young persons whose judgments are imma- ture, and none willing, and knowingly willing, to take the advantage of bad opinions to pro- mote their own corrupt private ends. These considerations are sufficient to show, that the ibest principles in the abstract must take the impress and submit tothc action of existing cir- cumstances to be practically beneficial. • Ml regular governments, which have paid any respect to liberty, have felt the force, both of abstract principles iu favour ofthe liberty of thepress, and of the practical dangers of li- cense, But they have proceeded to guard the latter in different ways. The most common has been to impose a previous license upon publi- cations, a practice which ( ins had the effect of preventing a salutary freedom of discussion, and or perpetuating error and ignorance. Our laws have adopted a different principle, wbiah, whilst it holds a just general view of the sub- jects right, effectually prevents, as far as any thing human can prevent, the civil, social, anil moral mischiefs, which would arise from leav- ing the exercise of ( hat right without control — Every man among us has a right, acknowledg- ed, to lay what opinions he pleases before the public; but, if his writings shall be judged, upon fair trial, before a jury of his country, to be dangerous or offensive to morals, religion, the public peace, or to private character, he is then punishable according to the nature of his crime. This is, perhaps, as perfect a state of fiie press as the state of human nature, and leaves nothing to be complained of. except by those mischievous men who. for private ends, would corrupt and subvert society. If France come fo this, it will be well for her, and the pro- ceedings in her Legislature give some room to hope, thatshe is iu progress towards it. Since the Revolution, fhe press has been unfettered enough, at least in w hat relates to morals and religion. The consequence has 1 een, that the country bas been inundated and the people cor- rupted by books ofthe grossest immorality, in- fidelity, and atheism. On the 17th instant, the Chamber of Deputies was occupied in a dis- cussion on the law relative fo 1be press, and it was proposed to subject to punishment out- rages on " public morals, and good manners." Benjamin Constant, an old republican, and a great oracle with our reformers, objected to fhe clause " good morals," but, on perceiving that he was likely to be outvoted, confessed himself convinced by the arguments of the speakers, that the clause ought to stand! Thus has this man, who has held himself up as an oracle of politics, confessed that till lately he was not convinced that legislatures ought to take any steps to preserve good morals in a nation. A tolerable specimen this, we judge, of the u'tra- reformers on both sides the water. A proposal to put " religion" tinder the same protection, and to guard it against infidel and atheistical attacks, was negatived, by the efforts of the republicans and Bonapnrtisls, on the 17th;— but carried, in another shape, on the 1.9th, by a great majority, the friends of religion having been rallied on the occasion. Thus wiil a cheek be given to the blasphemous and irreligious writings which have filled France, that is, if ihe law be acted upon. And though, perhaps, popery may find some protection under if, yet we had rather see that protected than atheism triumphant. The clause, however, is left gen- eral, and does not in the letter favour the doc- trines ofthe Romish church in particular. How fat it is to be construed, wiil depend upon ju- ries, as they will depend upon the public mind A fireat point has been gained in favour of reli- gion in general, and so far France will be be- nefited by this decision. A Caution to Mothers. AT a critical season like Ihe present, when children are Teething, the utmost atten- tion ought to be paid to them, particularly as the measles and chin cough are so prevalent. If the ir- ritation ofthe gums comes with any other disorder, very few infants recover. Mothers ought never to be without the AMERICAN SOOTHING SYRUP in the • misery, for if a child w akes in thenight w ith pains in its gums, this valuable medicine applied will im- mediately op-. ii the pores, heal the sums, and th- re- in prevent fevers or convulsions; for should it come in competition with any other disorder it often destroys the mother's brightest hopes Parents who may be dubious of the virt- esof the Soothing Syrup, may refer to the different cases that have appeared iu the newspapers for the last ten years.
