LOT 1. ' tHE FARM of GREENBRAE, Jl occupied by WILLIAM MORRICE, consist- ing of upwards of 20 Acres of Laj) dr in a t^ gh state of cul- tivation, partly subdivided, and all enclosed. It is bound- ed on the south and east by the old public Road to Ellon ; on the north by the Lands belonging to Mr. Moir of Mur- car ; and on the west by the . Estate of Dyce. This Lot forms a most compact and desirable little Pro- perty ; it lies on a gentle slope to the south and west, having a finely wooded prospect in that direction ; com- mands an extensive view of the Coast and Bay ; and from its vicinity to Aberdeen and other local advantages, is ca- pable of being rendered a most convenient and agreeable residence. LOT 2. Consists of part of WESTFIELD and SIL- VERBURN, and is bounded upon the north and west, by the Lands of Seotstown ; upon the east by the Old- meldrutn Road, and upon the south by the Lands of Westfield. It contains about 50 Acres. 2 Roods, and 1 Fall, all arable ; except about 1 Acre, 1 Rood, and 4 Falls in Wood. On this Lot there is an excellent situa- tion for a House, commanding a fine prospect; and it is capable ofbeing rendered a very pleasant and convenient place of abode. This Lot will be divided into two, if intending purchasers desire it; one will consist of 12 Acres, 2 Roods, and 29 Falls; the other of 17 Acres, 3 Roods, and 1 2 Falls. LOTS. Consists of part of the LANDS of MUR- CAR, and is bounded upon the north and west by n com- mon Road, which divides it from Ironfield, and a Lot of Murcar belonging to Mr. Moir of Seotstown ; upon the east by the German Ocean ; and upon the south by the Land occupied by Mr. George Allan. It consists of 46 Acres, 2 Roods, and 24 Fails, or thereabout; whereof about 26 Acres have been in cultivation, and 4 are im- proveable ; the remainder consists of Links. Bents, and S inds. LOT 4. Consists of that part of MURCAR, posses- ed by Mr. GEORGE ALLAN, excepting a few Acres snd a small part of the Links to be retained. The whole of this Lot ( excepting the Links) is inclosed and subdivid- ed ; it is bounded on the north by Lot 3. ; upon the east partly by the German Ocean, and partly by the Ground to be retained; upon the south by the Lands belonging to Mr. Davidson of Drumside; and upon the west by the Turnpike Road. It consists of nearly 100 Acres, of which about 67 Acres are under cultivation, and part of these is old Infield. The remainder consists of Links, partly capable of improvement, and of Bents and Sands. On the Premises there is a good substantial Dwellin House of Two Stories, and a Steading of offices. This Lot forms a very compact Farm, capable, from its situa- tion, of being brought to the highest state of cultivation at little expense ; and it would, with Lot 3, form a very desirable small Estate. A more detailed specification may be seen in the hands of Andrew Jopp, Advocate in Aberdeen ; and David Cunningham, Grieve, at Fraserfield, wiil point out the boundaries of the different Lots. notorious also, that in the skirmishing warfare, by Ad-> dresses, the Ministry have lost much important ground. Wherever any thing like discussion on the conduct of Ministers took place, both talent and rank, if property and indepeud' ice constitute ranlt; were against Minister*. From « hat h is evidently appeared st most of the County Meetings, especially when tl. e officers of the Crown have attended, we are led to expert that a vigorous attempt will, as on former occasions, be made tb identify the op- posers of Ministers v ith the enemies of the C'iown. if, such be the resolution nf Ministers, it is a most injudicious one, it will certainly bring destruction to their doo » - s ; and in then will he verified the adage— Q: i:; s Japiier viitf yerdere dehientat. BREVIS. To the EDITOR of the AISERDEE'. I CHP. ONICLE. SIR, BEING determined not to be drawn int- a News- paper altercation. I think it proper to begin this Let:, i by telling yon, that it is . the last which y u will have from me, on the subject of the late County Meeting. " « ou i'wtvc noiHfs ion, in so jar as as regards me. t:> " vindicate yourself from the charge," ( which 1 did not make,) " of having wilfully misled the Public, hj a falsa report;" as you express yourself in your last paper; and wishing, on all occasions, to do full justice to every one, I readily admit, that, in the present case, the chargu could not apply; having understood, that you could not have personal knowledge of what passed at the Meeting, nut having been present. Of your Reporter, or those to whom you allude, as thinking his Report correct, not knowing them, I can s., y nothing; nor can it be at all surprizing if, in so crowded a Meeting, several persons may have heard imperfectly, or mi; understood what was said by tne, or by any other Gentleman. But, not to observe that I am, at least, as likely as any one else, to know what 1 said myself; I am quite certain, that neither the LORD LIEUTE. S/. NT, to whom, as Preses of the Meeting, I addressed myself ; nor Lord FORBFS, or Mr. MOIR of Scotstown; who werft on each side of him; nor Mr. IRVINE of Drum, who was at my rijjht hand ; ( I do not now recollect who was next to me on the other side) nor Mr. BURNETT of Park, who was directly opposite to me, and officially attentive to what passed ; will authenticate your report, in any of the articles which I felt myself called upon to contradict.— Besides the high personal respectability, in every view, of one and all of those whom I have named, it is obvious, that from their situation in the Meeting, they were most, favourably placed for bearing, and could not indeed fail to hear, most distinctly, what I really said ; nor wi: l I, after this Letter, as I said above, take ar. y^ iotice what- ever, of any further erroneous statements. In taking final leave of this subject, it may not be im- proper to add a few words of explanation, on the only oile of the points to which my former letter related, which, as regarding the object of the Meeting, can at all interest tile Fublic. The substance, then, of what I s: vd, relative to the Address was not, as stated in your Report, tlrat " so far from approving of the conduct of die Ministry, directly the contrary," ( whidh evidently means disapprov- ing) " was the case;" but, that either approbation or dis- approbation had been avoided, as party matteis, quite foreign to the purpose of the Address. 1 am. Sir, Your obedient humble Servant, T J. MEN2IES. , Belmont Street, Jan. 16, 1821. FOR COLDS, COUGHS, ASTHMAS, & c rnilli PECTORAL ELIXIR. Experience - a. during n very long period has incontestably provt d the superior efficacy of this Medicine, in all cases of Colds, Coughs, and Asthmatic affections. By promoting gentle expectoration it very shortly relieves the patient of a slight or recent Cold, and a few doses are generally sufficient to remove those which neglect has rendered more confirmed and obstinate, and which are accompanied with Cough, Spitting of Blood, and other serious sy mptoms. Its pe- culiar balsamic powers tend to heal soreness and allay the irritation of th? lungs, incases of Cough ; and in Asth- matic affections it assists and gives freedom to th » Breath. Thus it is an extensively valuable Remedy in the most prevalent class of complaints in this Country, during the winter season. Sold in Bottles at Is. 1 { d. and 2s. 9d.; by the principal Druggists, Booksellers, and Medicine Venders, in every Town throughout the United Kingdom. X. /?. Purchasers are - requested to ask for the Pectoral Elixir, arid to observe the name and address < if" / latter, 4. Chenjtsid'e,'' are engraved on the statnp attached to each bottle, to distinguish it J'roia IauxAXto. ss under simitar tills. We are, from the most respectable Authority-, enabled to state, that the meaning and substance of what Mr. MENZIES said at the County Meeting of the 20tii De- cember, as far as related to the object ,- ftlic address, was ; " that in framing the Address, all party matters whatever, and consequently any alhnidn to the Ministry, either i i approbating or disapprobation, had been expressly avoided, as altogether foreign to tlte object of the Address; which was to express loyalty to the King, attachment to tha Constitution, and detestation of Sedition and Blasphemy." That this was really the Convener of the County's mean- ing we cannot doubt ; and although it appears from hi* Letter to us, published this day, that the statements of individuals concerning his expressions really used ore directly at issue, yet as he acquits us of any wilful misre- presentation we most readily drop the subject. On con- flicting testimony we cannot decide ; but we trust Mr. MENZIES will believe, that nothing, in any the least de- gree, disrespectful to him was intended on our part. Anil although we shall ever endeavour to obtain Reports of such Meetings, we never shall give publicity to sui- h as we have not reason to believe correct. We trust the Edi- tors of the many respectable Journals, who copied the Report of the Aberdeen Chronicle, will accept of this explanation as satisfactory. FIRST SPRING SHIP FOR QUEBEC.

BEFORE your next publication, the Imperial Parlia- ment will have met, and the wise and faithful Ministers, about our King's Throne, will, in all probability, have commenced their second campaign against her Majesty It is, indeed, impossible to say, with any degree of cer- tainty what maybe the issue of this most ogly warfaie. One thing however i.- certain, and augurs very favourably for the country, namely, ihat since ihe termination of their last compaign, the ranks of the supp irters of Mini- stry have been greatly thimud, and that her Majesty's c use has in a still greater pioportion g ined n^ w -, r ng 1 , by iin? acquisition of many distinguished Noblemen and independent Gentlemen, and a left Clergymen. It is To the EDITOR of the ABERDIJUN CUAONICRE SIR, AS I know that your ear is ever open to the complaints of the unfortunate, I uke the liberty of writing you aibeit I am not well qualified for such' a task. My story is sim- ple, and I shall tell it in as few words as possible. I am, Sir, a married man, and my wife is a woman en- dowed with many Christian qualities. Shis is pious, dut- iable, and full of the milk of human kindness towards her poorer neighbours ; she has brought me a large family, on whose education she lias bestowed the greatest pains ; in short, she would be a most amiable character hut for one unfortunate propensity— and that is an inveterate love of scandal. In my presence, or indeed in my house, this propensity is little indulged in ; but I have known her walk upwards < f an hour, exposed to wind and rain, with- r out cloak or bonnet, rather than part with a favourite crony before they had sufficiently run down soma unfor- tunate devil whom they had fallen foul of. She has aho formed a CLUB; of which she is rewarded as perpetual President; and in that Club, which meets al- ternately in the houses of the ordinary members, the cha- racters of all their acquaintances are almost every night obliged to undergo a rigid examination. And the sittings are often so long protracted, that I have been obliged to go to bed by myself, and have been well through my first sleep before I was joined by my dear spouse. It will give you so, me id a of ihe ies;) ect- bility of thi. 4 scandalous eon rie wh. n I mention, that some of lire steadi- est Members are or have been mothers to illegitimate children — one of them having had a family of several; whose surnames were all dili'ereut. It is needless to say what atrocious falsehoods must have emanated from such a Club, where st) many of t!, u members are anxious to reduce the characters of their neighbours to their own worthless standard. Their false- hoods are often clothed in such a veil, that it is impossible to prevent them from doing mischief j hut awful ono d- iv must the retribution I. e. He who steals my purse steals trash : ' lis something— nothing ; ' twas mine—' tis his-, And has lieen slave to thousands ; But he tt'ho filches from me my good name, Robs me of that which not enriches him, But leaves me poor indeed.

A HUSBAND. Aberdeen, January 16,1321. Charleston of aboynE lodge or free MASONS. On Wednesday the 27th Dec. St. . tohn's Day. the Brethren of the Charleston of Aboyne Lodge of Free Masons, tinder the Patronage of the Earl of ABOYNE, held their first inniversary Meeting at the Aboyne Arms, when, after examining tiie state of their Funds, which ( for the short time the Lodge has been established), are in a very flourishing state, and settling the other business of the Lodge, tliejr proceeded to the election of Oilice- bearers for lb-*} ensuing year, w hen the following were chosen, viz. LORD stRAThAVeN, r. W. mASTER ; Charles Wilson, Depute Master; John Strachan and Geo. cromar, wardens; James Duncan, grand steward ; Andrew Thomson and John Milne, stewards; David Smith," Treasurer ; Alex. Widdleton, . secretary ; John Grassick, chaplain and clerk ; Duncan Gordon, officer ; James Skene, Robert White, Shaw Cattanach, and Alex, Davrile, ' Counsellors. ' hie Brethren then partook of an excellent diunet, prepared for the occasion by Mr. MiddlETON, and at sis o'clock adjourned for a short time; they again met at seven in the Ball Room, attended by the Fair, when dancing commenced, ami was kept up with that innocent conviviality and enlivening spirit so Characteristic of the order, to an early hour in tlr* morning; when the com- pany separated, highly delighted with the entertainment of the evening, which '.- as best expressed by the joy that beamed in every cf'e, particularly in that of the Fair Sex, who did the Brethren the honour to attend them on the occasion: To the EDITOR of the ABERDEEN CHRONICLE. SIR, I am no wnv displeased to see so many loyal and duti- ful Addresses framed and voted to our King at the pre- sent time, but yet I have some doubts with respect to the avowed cause or causes of these loyal Addresses. The universal cause seems to be— 1st, The existence of a set of evil designing men. who go about teaching the lower orders to discard the laws, morals, religion, and to sub- vert the Constitution — 2.1, That, there are a number of the lower orders in different quarters, in consequence of stich teaching, reviling, and endeavouring to destroy the laws, and subvert the Constitution — 3d, That there is another set, sending forth thousands of blasphemous pamphlets, by which the dignitaries of the Church are ridiculed, and the people taught to despise the Church, the Clergy, and all true religion. Now, Sir, if these evil causes exist and operate, we ought to be on our guard, and we oughf'to thank those who are so kind as to warn CIs to guard against the operation of such dreadful causes. But the loss with me is, I am not at all sehsible of either the existence or operation of any or all of these causes, at least not more so, than has been the case from time immemorial. And I have one fault to the whole of the speeches, relating these evil causes, that is, that in none of them that I have seen, are we told where the evil setof men exist, or are at work in the had cause alledged ; w here the radical rebels are up in arms ; where the blasphemous pamphlets are published, or who are the authors of them, or what are the contents of them; or where, in conse- quence of these the dignitaries of the Church are despised, or religion discarded. I would, therefore, be obliged to any of the worthy Gentlemen who speak so well at tl^ meetings, to give us Some special specific account of these things, w here they have no hesitation to affirm so much and so often. In this way, I would be enabled to see mine enemy, and so may have it in my power to guard against him ; whereas, being only told that such and such dangerous foes exist somewhere in the dark. I am terrible frightened, but nave no way to save myself from danger. 1 only add, that in my opinion, if the dignitaries of the Church he not able to combat all blasphemous pim- phlets by the pen and preaching, they are scarcely worthy of being defended by the State : and some have been so bold as to alledge to mo, that many of those who declare in their loyal speeches, that they are mightily attached to our hoiv religion and are determined to uphold it till their last breath, are in reality totally destitute of this re- Ji- rion themselves; and to prove this, they maintain that they know some of those Gentlemen who ate profane swearers, whoremongers, and adulterers, and some of them covetous and extortioners— and some of them drink, f plav cards. & c. on the Sabbath- day. I shall be very glad if tiiese things shall be proved to be false. AN HONEST INQUIRER. to the burgesses or guild of the CITY or ABERDEEN. GENTLEMEN, THE present situation of public affairs calls loudlv On every individual, as well as every public body, to stand forward in opposition to the present weak and corrupt Administration. From the spirited manner in which you have defended your rights as Citizens of Aberdeen, it is to be hoped, you will not he wanting, at the present event- ful crisis, in that true loyalty and genuine patriotism which you have so frequently exhibited on former oc- casions. Several Addresses of the loyal kind have been sent up to his Majesty from public bo lies connected with this city, and unless you undeceive your Sovereign, he may be lead to believe, that all his subjects in this corner of his do- minions approve of the measures of his present Ministers. At such a moment as the present, to flatter Royalty is a crime, even silence is a shameful neglect of the trust com- mitted to British subjects : he alone is loyal who addresses the Throne in the language of truth. I therefore trust, that you will call together a Meeting of j our Fellow- citizens, and give them an opportunity of addressing their Sovereign in the language of truth. Be assured you will never gain emancipation from the thraldom of a self- elected junto, as long as the present Ministers sur- round the Throne. Your duty, therefore, as well as your interest, dictates to you to join your fellow- subjects, in petitioning the Crown for so desirable a purpose, i have the honour to be. GENTLEMEN, „ Your obedient Servant, A FELLOW- CITIZEN. tin: claims which this society lias on the countenance and support of the public, are perhaps more powerful than tho e of any other institution ; because the objects of its regard are the yoilng and inexperienced—- those on whose hearts impressions are easily made— whose tender itiituU j are open to receive instruction ; and because tiie princi- f pies communicated by this society arc purely of li reli- ! gious nature, which, when received and acted lipoit. give j rise to a course of conduct which commands the universal esteem of mankind, and the approbation of Ilim whose j approval is of infinitely greater value and importance. It j cannot be doubted that the existence of this society has I been the means of preventing much evil ; by the instruC- j tions which it imparts a moral character is formed pec'u- [ liarly amiable, which cannot fail to attract respect, and convince the opponents of the institution of its supreme excellency. Of the importance of instructing youth, an ancient writer stems to have been sufficiently aware, when be wrote tile fallowing just observation: •• Nullam munus, Reipulilicte afferre majus, meliusve p'ossumus, quam si dotTMmus atque erudiainus juventutetn." But while the instructions which the young receive at the Sabbath School qualify them for exhibiting a consistent conduct, they also prepare them for another state of existence ; and this is the grand and primary object of the institution. In a political and moral point of view then, this society has chums upon our benevolence particularly strong. But I shall not Say more upon the advantages of the institution, and on its claims upon our regard, but hasten to state the principal design of this communication. Great ;: s are the advantages which must result from the society, it is to be regretted, that so few take an active part | in the measures which it adopts Tor carrying its benevolent designs into accomplishment. When the Sabbath School was first established, the sphere of its operation was of course very circumscribed ; but since that time it has con- tinued to extend until an accession of teachers is indispen- sably necessary topromote on amore enlarged scale the object of the institution. It is true that Sabbath School teachers 1 receive no remuneration for their labours. In place of that they contribute as well as others for the support of the society. Perhaps this may be one reason why so few offer their services in this way. To those w ho are disin- clined to become a Sabbath School teacher, because no reward is bestowed upon them, it may be sufficient to ob- serve, that the consciousness of doing good affords more satisfaction to the mind than the receiving of any pecu- niary compensation whatever. Others again are not dis. posed to take the charge of a Sabbath School, because they are of opinion, that this is an office too far beneath their dignity, fitted only for the vulgar and the enthusiast — a term which they are . pleased to bestow upon those who discover most zeal for the attainment of any good end. But did the Lord of heaven and earth think so when he spoke these memorable words—" Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for pf such is the kingdom of heaven. " Were I to mention all the objec- tions which some persons bring forward in justification of their conduct by not becoming teachers of Sabbath Schools, it would extend this letter far beyond proper bounds, and encroach upon your limits and patience. It may how- . ever he proper to remark in a general manner, that if there is any excellency in communicating tlvose princi- ples to a rising race which will enable them to act as good subjects, and as moral and accountable creatures ; which will qualify them for imparting the same principles to their children, and thus exhibiting from generation to genera- tion a conduct worthy of universal imitation ; and if there is any pleasure to be derived from the thought, that when we are dead and gone, those whom we instructed in their respective duties will be engaged in the performance of the same kind offices— then the office of a Sabbath School teacher is an employment which does not derogate from the honour of the highest individual in the land, but on the contrary adds to his respectability, and renders him an object of respect and esteem among all the friends of the species. To those then, who may be disposed to come forward offering their services in this good cause, 1 would recommend them to peruse the report of the society lately published, in which they will find many excellent observations respecting its utility, and in which they will find also information given as to the proper quarter to which they may communicate their intentions. Aberdeen, Dec. 20, 1820. I am & c. Z. of snow on die tinouiitai nous par's of the country, which are at present quite enveloped ; and on the lower districts it lies to the depth of some inches, with eVery prospect of a steady Storm. The young wheats are promising : a considerable breadth, ovvir. o- f t cs ' a trt the wetness of the season, was not got sown after green crop ; but this is not considered as a loss, as it will come in spring, with a great cer- tainty of success, to be sown with oats or barley—• Markets were very low : wheat fetches 29s. per lioll ; barley, 17s. ; oats, 16s. ; oatmeal, 15s. to to 15s. Gu. ; pease and beans, l is. to 15s. ' Cattle markets are a shade higher : good fat fetches 8s- to 8s. 6d. per stone ; superior milch cows, 9s. Win- terings are enquired after, and seem to be in de- mand ; but we have not heard of any improvement in price. Farm work is much forward, except- ing the carting of dung, which was impeded by the softness of the land, but is now busily plied, and will be overtaken in good time. The present in- adequate prices of grain are heavily and severely felt. The absurd corn laws have perverted the very order of nature, and made an abundant crop ruinous to the farmer, and a scanty one advantageous. We conceive it high time that landed proprietors were taking measures tor the benefit of their tenants, as in the event of not so doing, they will ultimately find themselves the only losers.— Jan. 1, 1821. To the EDITOR Tif th « ABERDEEN CHRONICLE. SXIS, I am at a loss to account for the apathy of my fellow- citizens at such a time as this— why so dilatory in hold- in" a Meeting to address his Majesty, and petition the House of Commons, not only praying for a change of men, hut also a change of measures? Can we be the descendants of those who so bravely suffered amidst blaz- ing fa" ots for the liberty of conscience— and have w e not the courage to speak our sentiments, and save ourselves and our children from a wretched tyranny ? Let us push on while the day is doubtful, when the battle is won volunteers will not be wanted— for a nation to have its will obeyed, it needs only to make it known. A. R. Aberdeen, Jan. 11, 1821. To the EDITOR of the ABERDEEN CHRONICLE. SIR, AS vour paper has ever been distinguished by a regard to the public good, and as it has been the vehicle of liberal discussion upon all subjects, I send you the following lines, tinder the impression that they will obtain a place in one of its columns ; more particularly as the subject to which I am to call your attention and that of your readers, is one which demands immediate consideration. It is well known that several years have passed away since the Sabbath Evening School Society was established in this place ; that from its commencement to the present moment, it has continued to bestow on the rising genera- tion blessings of inestimable value ; and like'the gentle dews and showers of heaven which distil upon the open- in" bud and tender flower, this institution has watered many a soul, the happy fruits of which have been very apparent even to the most superficial observer. But, useful as this society has been, it has, like many others, its enemies who would, in place of contributing to its sup- port, encourage its friends to withdraw their countenance from it. In opposition, however, to the opinions or the scowl of these men, there are not wanting those who stre- nouslv exert every faculty of their minds and every mem- ber of their bodies, in order to secure its preservation and perpetuity. Aware of the inestimable benefits which such a noble institution as this is calculated to produce, and which it has already produced to a certain extent, nothing could deter or intimidate them from persevering in their efforts to promote its great and iauthiblti object. AGRICULTURAL REPORTS FOR DEC. ENGLAND. A considerable quantity of wheat was put into the ground during the first ten days of the present month, that so much of the wheat seed business has not been deferring to spring as had been expected. The ap- pearance both of the forward and latter sown wheats, also of rape, rye, and other cattle crops, is fine and luxuriant. Drill sowing or row culture, after so many years ofdcliberatiou, is greatly on the increase, the motive assigned, is clearing the land of weeds— liv good hap, renewed deliberation may induce a more perfect row culture than that in fashion, which assuredly can never prove radical, in the respect of cleaning or generating the land. From the gene- rally favourable state of the weather and plenty of hands, country labour is very forward, and the lands are well fallowed for the spring crops, by the plough ; an Hon. General's plan of substituting the scarific for the plough, not having yet obtained the sanction of fanning opinion. Every article of produce has decreased in price since our last, and with respect to fruit, poultry, eggs,, game, butter, cheese, ba- con, park, pigs, & c. we have had as much assis- tance from France and Ireland, as though we had needed it, demonstrating genera! superabundance. Live stock of all kinds, at far other reduced prices. The pastures now no longer afford and keep, and turnips, except partially, are a scanty crop ; in consequence the surplus of barley, oats, and pulse, will be converted into firm, sound, and wholesome beef and mutton, a character which cannot fairly be given to fashionable oilcake meat, with its loose, inelastic, unsavoury flesh, and dull- couloured grease- tub fat. Fodder is in universal plenty, rendering the winter home of the cattle quite comfortable— An endemic disease has affected swine in some parts of the midland counties. Our reports from even Kent, Essex, and the most productive and opulent counties, to use the language of former days,' are trulv deplorable. They express the utmost appre- hension as to their ability of supporting their la- bouring poor through the winter. The associated farmers are, it seems, about to renew their appli- cation to the Legislature for relief : now, some, we do not pronounce the most judicious of the peti- tioners, have not scrupled to avow their expectation that Parliament ought to make enactments on the affair of import, tantamount to raising the price of corn to the height which might be in their estima- tion, a saving standard. Should they have the dis- cretion to inquire previously, how much it might probably cost to cffectuate such purpose, Lord Chesterfield's well known reply would be most apro- pos, " about three crowns /" The true and only mode of relief appears to us obvious, but its diffi- culty equally so enhanced by inveterate prejudice and want of independence. Scotland, hitherto the most prosperous of the three kingdoms, is following apace in the common track of calamity, in the midst of abundance. Yet rents are there held up, to the astonishment of all. Ireland, misery's eldest daugh- ter, sends us the report that she is labouring under war rents, and taxes, with feudal suit and service, and selling her produce at the lowest peace prices. KINCARDINESHIRE. The month of December has been variable and unsteady : with the exception, however, of five or six days about the middle of the month, we have had no frost. In the early part of the month we had a good deal of rain ; and towards the end of it, six'or eight days of high easterly wind, with a greater intensity of cold than is generally felt in open wea- ther. On the 80> th frost set in, with a heavy fall con STY OF L. 4 NARK MEETING. Oil Thursday the 11th inst. the most numerous and respectable Meeting of the Noblemen, Free- holders, Justices of the Peace and Commissioners of Supply of the County of Lanark that ever took plate, was held in Currie's Inn, at Hamilton, Lord Belhaven i. i the Chair, Sir C. iVJacdonald Lockhart moved that a loyal and dutiful Address be presented to his Majesty, ex- pressive of their attachment to his Person and Go- vernment, which was seconded by Henry Monteith, M. P. Mr. Hope Vere then rose, and declared his in- tention to propose an Amendment, on the ground that this Address and the others which had gone from Scotland were more expressive of loyalty to the Administration than to the King ; and that the county of Lanark, a county which had the honour ofsending a representative to Parliament who had done more for his country than ALLL the other Scots representatives put together, ought to address the Throne in the language of truth, and not of flattery. Mr. Hope Vere concluded a long and able Speech, by moving the following Amendment. " That while we humbly offer to your Majesty these assurances of our determined loyaltv to your sacred person, and to the constitution as established at the revolution in 1688, it would be want of duty not to express to vour Majesjty our conviction that a strict regard to economy in the public expenditure, and the adoption of conciliatory measures, are es- sentially necessary to remove the financial embar- rassments of the country— to allay the prevailing dis- contents— to restore confidence to the people in your Majesty's government — and to secure the tranquilli- ty and prosperity of the nation." Mr. Mossman seconded the Amendment. The original Address was farther supported by Mr. Stirling, Mr. John Dickson sen. Advocate, Mr. Kirkman Finlay, & c. The Amendment was supported by Mr. Inglis, Mr. Cranstoun, & c. Mr. Cranstonn's speech made a very powerful impression. It was no less temperate than it was forcible and convincing. Mr. C. contended that the real object of the Address,' an object which its sup- porters had not dared to avow, was to use it as a make- weight in favour of Ministers, to balance tiie overpowering declarations of public opinion against them. lie put it to gentlemen, whether the pur- pose to which lie alluded was not that for which this Address was intended ? whether it would not be so construed by all persons out of doors? whether this intention would not be openly professed by the sup porters of the address themselves, so soon as the meeting was at a close ? If, then, it be not proper that so many of our fellow subjects as disapproved of the conduct of Ministers should be caluminatcd, and if an address like the present ( vague and indistinct although it lie, yet on that very account the better qualified to accomplish its true, but unacknowledged ends) might become an instrument by which this calumny was to be proclaimed, it was impossible for him to give it his support. On the other hand, no similar objections could in his opinion be hud against the amendment. If adopted, it would obviate all dan- , ger of such inference being deduced. Equally with the address, it expressed loyalty to the King, and attachment to the Constitution ; and it recommended measures of economy and conciliation— measures which ifadopted, there was no one, lie conceived, but would acknowledge them to be for the advantage and security of the country. Before concluding, t he learned gentlemen made some pointed remarks on the inveterate imbecility of that party spirit which would arrogate to itself exclusive or at least pre- eminent loyalty, and would brand their antago- nists with the opposite vices. A firm and indepen- dent opposition to the Ministers, be they who tliev might, he considered as the very life- spring of the Constitution. Mr. Cranstoun concluded amid loud cheers; and the meeting divided, when there ap- peared, For the amended Address, - - 94 For the original Address, - - 90 Mojoritv in favour of the Amendment, - 4 The cheering upon the armtsitneement of the vote was instantaneous, and, communicating from the Hall to the people out of doors, extended itself throughout the town. Lord Belhaven, upon obtaining silence, stated, that although he did not w ish to vote, from the cir- cumstance of his being their chairman, he begged leave to state, that, had there been an equality, lie would have given his vote for the. amendment.— ( Cheers). It was now moved by Mr. Hope Vere, and agreed to unanimously, that the address adopted by the meeting should be presented to his Majesty by the Duke of Bedford, Earl Fitzwilliam, Lord Ers- kine, and Lord A. Hamilton. Thanks were then voted to Lord Belhaven for his conduct in the chair, which motion was carried by acclamation. FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. Bl'NDEtt MEETINT,. A MET tingoft. be Inhabitants of Dundee was held, on Monday the 3th, in the Steeple Church, for the purpose of considering the propriety of addressing his Majesty on the state of public affairs, and of recommending the dis- missal of his present Ministers'. The day was excessively stormy, and the streets were almost impassable. Notwith- standing of this, upwards of two thousand persons were within the church— comprising a fair representation of all classes of the people of Dundee. At half- past twelve, Mr. Saunderson mrfVed that Mr. Thornton should take the Chair; and shouts of applause followed the nomination. Mr. Thornton, after explain- ing that Provost Brown, the Chief Magistrate, had de- clined to call the meeting on the requisition of 100 resec- table householders, stated, that in compliance with the act of Parliament, notice of this meeting was then given to Mr. David Blair junior, one of his Majesty's Justices of the Peace for the County of Forfar ; and that they were now legally met, to exercise one of the most important privileges belonging to the subjects of a free state— the privilege of approaching the Throne with a statement of their grievances, and of pointing out what they conceived to be a remedy for them. The business of the meeting was opened by Mr. Saun- ders, in a very able speech, which we regret much we cannot give at length. He concluded by moving a most spirited and well- written Address to the King, praying, that his Majesty would be graciously pleased to exert his Royal prerogative in forthwith dismissing from his pre- sence and councils those men whose measures have so much degraded his Majesty's throne, and retarded the prosperity of his virtuous people ; and that, when his councils shall be composed of men actuated by the true spirit of constitutional loyalty, his Majesty may be pleas- ed to signify to them his Royal wish that the representa- tion of his Majesty's people in the Commons House of Parliament should undergo such changes and modifica- tions as the increased intelligence and importance of the Hfople, asvfell as the corruptions introduced by time, and the changes in the relative population of the several parts of his Majesty's dominions may require." Mr. Henry Bell seconded the address; and Mr. Mudie addressed the meeting in a brilliant Speech, of which we cannot even give an outline. We subjoin, however, a si ngle passage: — " A clamour is no doubt raised against the expression of public opinion ; but though I would be the last man who would wish to see one peg of the constitution displaced, or one bond of society broken asunder, I would not refrain from complaining of palpable misrule. A set of men are no doubt abroad, who are hired to Calumniate the loyal and virtuous people of this country— who will say any thing for pay, and w ho are paid for saying any thing, provid- ed it be but black enough. These men w ill no doubt lie against us, as they have lied against others. They have branded as '• ragged rascals," as " the offscourings of the earth," as " the ignorant and illiterate mob," and as " mischievous and seditious Radicals," a meeting which Comprehended all that was high in honour and integrity, and transcendant in talents, in our country— a meeting at which were a Jcffiey, a Cockburn, a Moncrieff, and a thousand other names, to the least of whom the whole congregated herd of the hireling calumniators, ay, and of the fools in office who set them on, are not worthy to hold water for the washing of his hands. Yes, those names who stand highest in the roll of all that is wise, and man- ly, and independent in our country, have been belied, and defamed, and traduced, and balladed, and placarded through the streets, by the literary blackguards oj'tke me- tropolis ; and we cannot hope to escape from the tongues of the small black fry of the province. Mr. Mudie con- cluded by moving, as an amendment, that there be incor- porated in the petitioning part of tho address, some such clause as this— " We farther implore, that your Majesty would imme- diately cause the Queen's name. to be inserted in the Li- turgy of the English Church; and order a palace, and recommend a revenue to be granted to her, suitable to the high station of your Majesty's lawful consort ; and that she may enjoy all the honours and privileges which belong to the Queen of the British people." The amendment was immediately seconded, and car- ried by the uplifted hand of every man in the meeting. It w as moved, and unanimously carried1, that the gen- tlemen who- subscribed the requisition should be a com- mittee for the purpose of attending the subscription of the address, and of taking care that no person under age or otherwise disqualified should sign it; Mr. Saunders to be Convener. Tt was moved, and unanimously carried, that the Dukes of Bedford, Hamilton, and Leinster, Earls Grey and Rosslyn, Lord Erskine. and Lord Viscount Duncan, be respectfully requested to present the address to his Ma- jesty, and that the latter be lequested to see it duly for- warded. The Meeting displayed the most cordial and unanimous feeling, and met and separated without the slightest symptom of disorder. The exertions of the adherents of Ministers to procure a majority to vote their address in the county of Lanark, were beyond all precedent. Of the ninety whom they brought forward, twenty- four held no property in the county ; their rights arising e. r officio from their holding the situation of Ma- gistrates of Burghs, Sc. & c. One of these, Mr. Avton, the Sheriff- substitute, was placed in most distressing circumstances— his wife died'the night before. But this was no excuse. He was dragged to the meeting by his principal, and compelled to i vote. FROM FRENCH PAPERS. PARIS, Jan. 8 On the 4th inst. the Arch- bishop of Bourdeahx blessed, in grand pomp, the bedquilt which is to be presented to his Royal High- ness the Duke of Bourdeaux, in the name of the city of Bourdeaux. FLORENCE, Dec. 25.— The King of Naples left Leghorn on the morning of the 23d last, and proceeded to Pisa, where he found the Grand Duke. These Sovereigns proceeded on their route together, and entered this capital last Saturday. A discharge of one hundred and one guns announced the arrival of the Neapolitan Sovereign, who alighted at the Palace of Pitri, where he was received by the Prin- CJS of the Grand Duke's family, Prince Maximi- lian of Saxony, and the Great Officers of State. After two o'clock the Ministers, the members of the diplomatic corps, Sc. had the honour of being presented to his Majesty. Yesterday, the 21th, the Duke de Gallo, Minis- ter for Foreign Affairs, ad interim, of the kingdom of Naples, arrived here. LISBON, Dee. 18.— The brigantine La Pro- vidence, which left Lisbon on the 5th September last, with dispatches which announced to the Court of Kio Janeiro the events at Oporto, entered the port of this capital, returning from that mission, on the 16th instant, at eight o'clock in the evening; she arrived at Brazil on the 17th October, and left it on the 29th with the dispatches of the Govern- ment. His Majesty, informed of the events of Oporto, and, at the same time, persuaded that they did not extend beyond some cities and villages of the pro- vince of Minho, granted a general amnesty, and authorised the Cortes, convoked by the ancient Re- gency, though the convocation might be somewhat irregular without the concurrence of his Majesty. He ordered, besides, that it be declared, after the Cortes had ended their labours, and submitted their propositions to him to be sanctioned or rejected, the Portuguese should have among them eithar his Royal person or that of one , of his august sons, on con- dition, nevertheless, that the subsequent news would give assurance that the Iloya! dignity had not been endangered by the execution of the measures taken by the ancient Regency. All the Royal Family enjoyed the best health, except his Majesty, whose sufferings for many years, from a disease in one of his legs, had lately increased. According to the reports circulated by the officers and crew of La Providence, the dispositions of the Brazilians in favour of the cause of their ancient metropolis cannot be more satisfactory. They add even that this cause is not without protectors in the Councils of the King. The Supreme Junta pf Government have deter- mined, conformably to the proposal of the Military Board lately created, that the present Majors of Briga. le shoull ho employed in their corps, accord* ing to their rank, and that officers selected from the Staff, by the choice of the Commanders of Brigades) should by commission perform their duties.— Lisbon Gazette. VIENNA, Dec. 29;— The Emperor, oiir Sove- reign, arrived here yesterday from Troppan. We expect to- day the Emperor Alexander. As' to Ins Prussian Majesty, thei'e is no doubt that coirfforT" mable to his promise, he will soon arrive hero, in order to proceed with the two Emperors to Lay- bach. The Austrian Observer published yesterday the following article :— ' , " TROPPAl/, Dec. 23, 1820.—" The three allied Sovereigns opened the conferences at Troppau by mutual explanations, as to the point of view in which they regard the Revolution of Naples. The result was an unanimous conviction thai tint Revolution was planned by fanatic serts, and carried into effect by soldiers forgetful of their duties. The violent overthrow of all legal relations, which was the consoqnence of that Revolution, and the arbitrary and anarchical system substituted for those re- lations, being not only in direct opposition to the princi- ples of law, of morality, and of the true happiness of na- tions— principles which the Monarchs have so often and so loudly proclaimed, but being also, by reason of their inevitable results, incompatible with repose and tranquil- lity, and consequently with the maintenance of the peace of Europe. Penetrated with these truths, the Sovereigns have by common accord, adopted the firm, resolution of directing their united forces, for the purpose of destroying the pre- sent state of affairs in the Kingdom of Naples, as being destitute of all legitimate basis, and brought about solely - by rebellion and by violence ; and to place the King in such a situation that he inav be enabled to decide upon a future Constitution for his States, in a mode that may ha in har. mony with the true and stable interest of his people, and with the tranquillity of neighbouring countries. " At the same time, the High Monarchs, animated by the most lively desire not to proceed to extreme measures, except in the event of their becoming indispensible, wi-. ii to omit nothing that may tend to contribute to their pacific and conciliatory object ; and they have therefore weighed, with the greatest care, the means which present themselves. After mature deliberation, they have determined to take for Naples and for the King himself, a step which ap- pears eminently proper to remove, on the one hand, all doubt as to the real sentiments and viewsof the Allied Powers ( if any can still exist in ( lie minds of rational men), and, in the other, to save, under the mediation of their benevolent King, the great majority of the Neapolitan nation, who wish for nothing but tranquillity and order from the oppression which weighs upon them, and from all the evils with which they are still menaced, and to secure also the repose of the rest of Italy, " Inconsequence, the Emperor of Austria, the Emperor of Russia, and the King of Prussia wrote, on the 20th of November last, to the King of Na- ples, a letter from each in the same terms. [[ This letter we have already published. J " Shortly before the arrival of this letter at Na- ples, the King received a letter from the King of France, persuading him to accept the invitation of the Allied Powers. The Holy Father also address- ed to him another of his own motion, and written ia the same sense. " Some days afterwards his Neapolitan Majesty wrote the following letter to each of the three Allied Sovereigns. " Silt, MY 13 ROTH FIR, AND DEAR CoUSIX, " If under present circumstances my heart could bo still open to impressions of joy, it would doubtless have been at the moment of my receiving the letter of your Imperial Majesty dated from Troppau, and those of the . Allied Monarchs assembled there. I have been affected beyond all expression by the greatness of soul which direeW all your measures for the welfare of the nations of Europe, and by the sincere particular interest of which I have had frequent proofs, which you take in my | ierson, and in the people whom Providence has confided to my care, and who e happiness, repose, and welfare are Ihe objects of all my efforts. Afier this frank expression of my sentiments, your Majesty may easily conceive with whatdecp gratitude I have received the invitation which you have addressed to me, as well as the Emperor of Itus ia and the King of Prussia, to take part in the deliberations of the Congress of Laybach, which has only for its object to confirm the object of the holiest of alliances. I see in this invitation a new mercy of Providence, which opens to me a way for labouring with my illustrious Allies in a work that will render their names dear to the remotest posterity, and of sharing some part of the glory which awaits them. Your Imperial Majesty will not doubt my eagerness to accept such an invitation, and my departure will be as spcedv as circumstances may permit. " It w- ill be a particular consolation to me to see again your Imperial Majesty, and to become personally acquain- ted with the Emperor Alexander and the « King of Prusiia, to owe also to your wisdom and kindness the peace of my country ; and my most agreeable occupation will he divide,, with all the members of my family, those sentiments of gratitude with which my heart is penetrated. Accept, & c, " Naples, Due. 11, 1820. FERDINAND" The Paris Papers contain nothing else of any im- portance. The King held a court as usual on Sun- day. FROM GERMAN PAPERS. FRANKFORT, Dec. 29.— The last courier from Stockholm has brought the following news:—" Im- portant, negociations are sfticl to be on foot between Denmark and Sweden, the object of which is to insure effectual protection to the commerce of the North. The Cabinet of St. Petersburg!) is sup- posed to take part in these negotiations, which may probably lead to a maritime ' league between the three Northern Powers." NAPLES, Dec. 21— Letters from Milan con- firm the intelligence that the tvphus fever prevails amongst. the Austrian troops assembled in " the Lom- bardo- Venetian kingdom. The number of soldiers w ho are attacked with this dreadful malady is con- siderable. Some of the regiments have from seven to eight hundred men in the hospitals. At the de- parture of the last courier, the number attacked amounted to 16,000. The cavalry have sustained a loss of 1500 horses, which is attributed to a want of provender. VIENNA, Nov. 29.— Their Majesties the Em- peror and Empress arrived here yesterday. The Russian Ministers, Counts Nesselrode and Capo d'lstria, came in the suite of their Emperor; On the 1st of January Prince Mctternich will set out for Laybach, with the same persons belong- ing to the Imperial Chancery as accompanied him to Troppau. His Majesty our Emperor sets out on the 2d, the Emperor of Russia on the 3d, and the Ambassadors and Ministers who are to attend the Congress at Laybach ( to which it is said deputies from all the Italian States will probably be present), are to leave Vienna on the 4 th. Lord Stewart will give a grand hall on New Year's; Day, which the Sovereigns will honour with their presence. The substance of the letter of the allied Sovc » reigns inviting the King of Naples to Congress, and his Majesty's answer, as given in the Paris Papers, is inserted abov* c. The German Papers, give the following version, professing the same prill* ciples and views. HAMBURGH, Dec. 28.—- The following* the Declaration addressed to the Governments by tho Sovereigns at Troppau, relating to the affairs of Naples and the events connected with them, which piece was delivered to the Senate of this city by tho Austrian resident Minister, Baron Hadel: " Thy overthrow of tile order oft things ui Spain, I'^ f- \ U tugal, and Naplo >. tins necessarily catised the carcS and fhe uneasiness of Hie rowers who combated the revolu- tion, and convim " 1 them of the necessity of putting a check on the new calamities with vhicd Europe is threatened. The principles which united the great Powers of the Continent to deliver the world from the military despotism of an individual issuing from the re- volution, ought to act against the revolutionary power which has just developed itself. •• The Sovereigns assembled at TrOppaU with this in- tention, venture to hope that they shall attain this object. ' J'liey will take for their guides, in this great enterprise, the Treaties which restored peace to Europe, and have united its nations together. , " Without doubt the Powers have the right to take in common general measures of precaution against those States, whose reforms engendered by rebellion is openly opposed to legitimate Governments, as example has al- ready demonstrated, especially when the spirit of rebellion is propagated in the neighbouring States by secret agents. Jn consequence the Monarchs assembled at Troppau have connected together the measures required by circum- stances, and have communicated to the Courts of London and Paris their intention of attaining the end desired, either by mediation or by force. With this view they have invited the King of the Two Sicilies to repair to Eaybach, to appear there as conciliatory between his mis- guided people and the States whose tranquillity is en- dangered by this state of things; and as they have re- solved not to recognise any authority established by the seditious, it is only with the King they can confer. " As the system to be followed has no other foundation than Treaties already existing, they have no doubt of the assent of the Courts of Paris and London. The only ob- ject of this system is to consolidate the alliance between the Sovereigns ; it has no view to conquests, or to viola- tions of the independence of other Powers. Voluntary ameliorates in the Government will not be impeded— They desire only to maintain tranquillity, , and protect Europe from the scourge of new revolutions, and to pre- vent them as far as possible." At a meeting of a political club at Madrid, the Address of the Common Council to George IV. re- quiring him to dismiss liis. Ministers, was read ; the reading was loudly applauded, and a Petition of a similar tenor to King of Ferdinand was instantly drawn up, and received numerous signatures. Extract of a private letter from Madrid, dated Dec. 25 " An alliance, offensive, and defensive, is talked of in this capital, which is on the point of being concluded, between our Government and those of Naples and Portugal."— Juurual de Paris. MANIFESTO OF THE PORTUGUESE NATION to the SOVE- REIGNS AND PEOPLE OF EUROPE. The Portuguese Nation, animated with the most sin- cere and ardent desire to maintain the political and com- mercial relations which have hitherto bound it to all the Governments and People of Europe, and having more particularly at heart to continue to merit in the opinion of illustrious men of all nations the return and consideration which have never been refused to the loyal and honour- able character of the Portuguese, judges it indispensably necessary to ofTer to the public a succinct but frank ex- position of the causes which produced the memorable events that have lately taken place in Portugal, of the true spirit which directed them, of the sole object to which the changes tended that have been made, or which it is intended to make, in the internal form of its Government; it is confident that this exposition, rectifying the false ideas which may perhaps have been conceived of those events, will merit the kind attentions of the Sovereigns and of the people. All Europe knows the extraordinary circumstances which in 1807 forced his Majesty John VI. at that time Prince Regent of Portugal, to remove with his Royal family to his transatlantic dominions ; it is granted that this resolution of his Majesty was judged then of the most decided advantage to the general cause of liberty in Europe. Nobody, however, failed to perceive the cri- tical situation in which Portugal was placed by this absence of its Prince, and succeeding events proved that this foreboding was not vain or rash. Portugal, separated from her Sovereign by the vast ex- panse of the ocean, deprived of all resources from her transmarine possessions, and of all the benefits of com- merce by the blockades of her ports, and governed at liome by a hostile force, which was then thought invin- cible, itemed to have reached the final term of its political existence, never to be replaced in the rank of independent nations-. In such a desperate crisis this heroic people did not lose its honour, its courage, or its fidelity to its King, which could not be torn from its heart by the force of cir- cumstances, nor by the preponderant power of the enemy. They in fact displayed themselves in the most energetic manner as soou as a favourable opportunity oflered. The Portuguese, with the assistance of their Allies, recovered at the cxpence of the most painful sacrifices their politi- cal existence ; restored with generous loyalty to their Monarch the Throne arid the Crown ; and impartial Europe must confess ( though this justice is not always done) that to them are also in a great measure owing the triumphs'which have since been joined to the advantages of the liberty and independence of Thrones and Nations. Jt is more easy to conceive than to express what was the internal situation of Portugal, after circumstances so new, effects so extraordinary, and a convulsion so general. The ruin of its population, commenced by the emigra- tion of the inhabitants who followed the Prince, or en- deavoured to withdraw from the distrustful suspicion, or the systematic persecution of the enemy ; was increased by the two fatal invasiohs of 1 809 and 1810, and by the inevitable losses of a long and obstinate war of seven years. Commerce and industry, which can never prosper but under the beneficent protection of peace, security, and public tranquillity, were not oniy depressed and abandon- ed, but seemed to have been wholly destroyed by the un- limited liberty given to foreign vessels in the ports of Brazil, by the disastrous Treaty of 1810, by the conse- quent decline of tile national manufactures, by the almost total destruction of the mercantile fnaMne and naval force ; by the absolute want of all care to protect and en- couraee tliew two most important branches of public pros- perity. Agriculture, the basis of the riches and strength of na- tions, deprived of the arms which the army or death took from it ; destitute of the capitals which supported it. and which had been sometimes employed on objects of the more urgent necessity, deprived of the vital strength • which it used to receive from the national industry, and from the active circulation of commerce, both domestic and foreign, lay in a fatal lethargy, and presented to the astonished spectator only the melancholy picture of famine and misery. The sensible diminution of the public revenue, caused bv the ruin of the population, of commerce, and of in- dustry ; by the irrevocable loss of the great sums which the enemv violently extorted from the hantlsof the Portu- guese ; and by the excessive expences of the war, obliging the nation to contract new and enormous debts, for the ., payment of w'.. ich its resources were, engaged, gave the final blow to public credit, which was already shaken by the scandalous malversations of the fiscal agents, as well as by the most erroneous system of administration. If the Portuguese did not love and respect their Prince and his august dynasty with a kind of love and admira- tion almost religious, if they did not wish to receive from liis justice and kindness alone the reforms and public im- provements which such a state of things imperiously de- mands, it would be very easy at that time to fix limits to power, or dictate conditions suitable to such urgent cir- cumstances. They were not ignorant of their rights : the general tendency of opinion, guided by the light of the jige. and openly manifested among the most civilized nations of Europe, invited them to such use of these rights which their ancestors had recognized and exercised on less pressing occasions, the victorious and triumphant army would have supported such just pretensions, and the nation would be now free or certainly less unfortunate. liut the character of the Portuguese could not bely itself. They chose rather to hope every riling from their Prince than to give to Europe, already afflicted by the late misfortunes, the sight of, a turbulent and impatient nation, or to appear to abuse the facility afforded by cir- cumstances to shew a spirit of revolt and want of submis- sion! The silent and peaceful endurance of their evils was the basis of their proceedings-— confidence in the acknow- ledged viitnesofthe Prince, the foundation of their hopes. Uut ( it is hard lo say it !) these hopes were wholly de- ceived, and tins suffering was carried IcMfce utniost extent to which it seems possible for the patience of a high- spirited nation, full of the feeling of its misfortunes, and not ignorant of the means of remedying them. After this introduction, the Manifesto proceeds to ob- serve, that it is unnecessary to paint in detail the melan- choly picture of the progressive decline of Portugal in the last six years, as being notorious to all Europe. Refer- ring to the preceding, it states, as additional causes of ruin, the sending so many thousand troops to Brazil to carry on a war of which Portugal bore tile burden, and which exposed it to the attacks of a powerful neighbour, always its rival, and now offended and provoked. Commerce was without encouragement, and every re- gulation tended only to the advantage of foreigners.— Manufacturers were equally discouraged, and while their own manufactures were going to decay, and innumerable workmen reduced to idleness and want, the most insigni- ficant articles of furniture or dress were imported from other countries. Portuguese vessels were taken by friends and enemies, insulted and captured by pirates, in sight of our own fortresses. The Portuguese saw and suffered. But why renew these profound sorrows ? Even strangers, who profited by the dreadful indifference or coldness of the Portuguese Government, often said with honourable frankness—" This fine country was worthy of a better fate." Blessed as Portugal is with a most fruitful soil, overflowing with agricultural riches, augmented : n quantity by the improvident permission of excessive im- portation, yet the general distress was so extreme that the poor were pelMling with famine in the midst of plenty, and the bounty of Heaven was blasted by the folly of tnan. The Manifesto then shews how this distress was still further aggravated by continuing an immense expendi- ture, as if the Court were still at Lisbon, while the re- venue was sensibly diminishing by the above causes, as well as by the negligence and peculation of the officers. The sums sent to Brazil for the war in America, & c. in- creased the distress, and caused the salaries of the public servants in every department, as well as the interest of the public debt, to be dreadfully in arrear; and, finally ( with shame be it spoken), it was not possible to com- plete a loan of only four millions of crusadoes. The Portuguese knowing the heart of their Sovereign, hoped he would prepare the necessary reforms, a hope which his Majesty sometimes encouraged ; but the hope vanished, and the Ministers at Rio Janeiro turned aside the King's mind from it, and were displeased when any patriot dared to publish his opinions on this important subject, and shewed the necessity of restoring the seat of Government to Portugal. Hence the Portuguese began to lose their confidence in the sole remedy which remained; the idea of being re duced to a colony affected them ; and all saw it was im- possible for the affairs of a Monarchy to go on regularly at such a- distance from the centre of its action, frequent- ly impeded by the malignity of men, the violence of pas- sions, and even the effects of the elements. What could the Portuguese nation do in § uch a situa- tion? Suffer and hope. It did suffer and hope in vain for many years. Sigh, remonstrate, complain ? It did sigh, but its sighs were not listened to. Not listened to ?— They were repressed, cruelly stifled. It remonstrated and complained, but its remonstrances and complaints never readied the Throne. The King was told that his people were contented and faithful, and the M.- ftiifcsto protests, in the face of Europe, the unalterable loyalty of the na- tion, but oliserves that content Is inconpatible with a situa- tion like theirs— it shews that the late events have not tfie'r origin, as has been intimated, in the false principles of an absurd and disorganising philosophy, or the love of un- bridled chimerical liberty, but in the conviction of the public distress, and the desire of remedying it. It shews that government is essential to society ; but that whatever may be the species of government established in a nation, arid by whatsoever exercised, neither force, nor habit, nor the lapse of time, can deprive a nation of its inalienable right of revising its fundamental laws, and introducing such improvements as may be necessary. The Portuguese acted upon these- principles ; they wished to place the Throne on the solid basis of justice and law ; they did not desire to introduce an innovation, but a restoration of the state of things which formerly ex- isted in Portugal, when in 1159 they gave the Crown to their first Monarch, and made the first fundamental laws of the Monarchy in the Cortes of Lamigo ; when in 1585 they gave the Throne to John I. on conditions which he accepted ; when in 1640 they gave it to John IV. who alio respected their liberties ; when the Portuguese had their Cortes through a long period of five centuries, when they reached the summit of glory and greatness. It is, therefore, absurd and unjust to stigmatise what they have done as rebellious or unlawful. Philip IV. in the same manner denounced the glorious rising of the Portuguese, in 1G40, as rebellion. It is equally absurd to attribute the late events to a faction. Taking every thing into con- sideration, the Portuguese cannot doubt but that their patriotic proceedings must merit, not only the most favour- able consideration, but just praise, both in the public opinion of enlightened nations, and in the Cabinets of the European Sovereigns. In conclusion the Manifesto remarks, that it would be most afflicting to the Portuguese nation, if the powerful Sovereigns with whom it has always been on the terms of friendship, should abuse their power to impose laws oil it, or to repress the noble efforts of a nation, incapable by its geographical position of troubling the peace of other people, which has never interfered in the internal concerns of others, and which may depend on the acknowledged justice of the Princes of Europe ; but which, if its hopes in this respect should be disappointed, it will risk every thing in the defence of its just rights ; that the maxim, " No nation ever failed to be free which desired to be so," is their encouragement; and that if unhappily they should fail in attaining this happiness, the nation will be destroy- ed sooner than conquered, and no good citizen will sur- vive the ruin of public felicity, They, however, anticipate a more fortunate result.

LONDON, Jan. 13. Tim REVENUE.— Although the accounts for the quarter which closed on Friday are not yet com- pletely made up, we have the satisfaction of knowing that the produce of the revenue for the. year 18' 20 has exceeded that of the year 1819, by a sum of about 2,300,0001. This excess appears to have taken place wholly ih" tl, ie revenue of Excise, includ- ing, however, the produce of the new duty, and the transfer of duties from the Customs, and affords a satisfactory proof, that tlie consumption of those articles which form the comforts of the great body of the community, has increased during the year which has closed. The Revenues of the Customs have been about 300,0001. less than in the preced- ing year, arising principally from the reduction oc- casioned by tiic transfer ofsonie considerable articles ! to the Excise; and the accounts which we have re- ceived of the improvement of trade during the latter part of the year, afford Reasonable grounds of ex- pectation that an augmentation will take place in this branch of the Revenue. We have, indeed, been informed, that the export of British produce and manufacturers On the half year ended 10th October, 1820 ( which is the latest period to which anv ac- count can be obtained), exceeded by two millions the exports, of the corresponding part of the preced- ing year. The Stamps have nearly produced the same sunt as in the year 1819, the difference being only about 30,0001. upon a revenue of 6,000,0001. The Post office has fallen short of its produce of the preceding year by about 50,0001., and upon the Land Tax about 40,0001. less has been paid. The miscellaneous articles, including Exchequer repay- ments, and other casual receipts, have also diminish- ed by nearly 100,0001; on the other hahd, the As- sessed Taxes have produced an augmentation of above 130,0001. The great increase lias, as might have been expected, taken place upon those articles upon which new duties were imposed in 1819 ; the in- crease of the Malt Duty alone having exceeded 2,000,0001. and that upon Tobacco being very considerable.— Courier. Upon the above article, The Englishman savs: " It is defective, bv having entirely avoided that part of the question to which the greatest degree of interest is attached, in treating solely of the Reve- nue for the vear, neither offering any remark 011 that for the quarter, nor instituting, anv comparison, in point of productiveness, with the corresponding pe- riod of the preceding vear. We are not prepared to supply the deficiency by the official statement, but we arc assured, there has been a falling off 111 the quarter ending 011 the 5th instant, to the amount of 820,0001. It is true, that the quarter ending 011 the 5th of January, 1820, was unusually produc- tive on account of a sufjplus of sugar duties, [ laid in by anticipation, yet the present inferiority, inas- much as the new taxes have since come into full ope- ration, must excite in many unpleasant doubts res- pecting the continuance of the existing rate of public income. As the official return for the vear ending on the 5th of Januarv last, assumes a surplus over that ending on the 5th of January, 1820, of 2,300,0001 only, there is, in fact, even on that ex- tended view of the revenue which the report referred to exhibits, a virtual deficiency of 890,0001. since the new taxes, which have been effective solely in that period, should have produced 3,190,0001. according to the original estimate."— Englishman. The accounts of the revenue of the country have been laid before the public to the 5th January 1821, and from these it appears that the revenue for the last year, 1820, has exceeded that for 1819 by L2,338,249. This, however, includes the taxes' which were imposed in the year 1819 011 malt, to- bacco, British spirits, coffee, and pepper, which were calculated to produce an additional revenue of three millions. These taxes took effect from the 5th of July 1819, and though they would not produce their full effect in the two first quarters, they would no doubt make a considerable addition to the reve- nue of that year. Adding this income to the L. 2,338,24- 9, it is likely that the new taxes will be found to have been productive to the amount expect- , ed from them. This quarter's revenue has fallen off to the amount of L. 309,329, so that the increase in the yearly revenue has arisen from the three for- mer more productive quarters Col, Mer. BRIGHTON, Jan. 10— The weather, to- day, has been mild, but not inviting 10 the walk. The King has promenaded the Palace- lawn, and appeared in good health and spirits. Yesterday General Sir William and Lady Jane Houston, and General M'Leod, had the honour of dining with his Majesty and Royal Suite, at the palace.

KEPPEL CRAVEN, Vice- Chamberlaiii. " Brandenburgh House, January 12, 1821." Upwards of forty Addresses are now waiting for presentation. The negociation to obtain Marlborough House for , • • . , the Queen s residence is not likely to succeed. The Duke of Marlborough has an interest in it for 20 years to come, subject to a lease to the Prince of Saxe Coburg for a term of years, of which there are fiye unexpired, at an annual rent of 3,500/.— We understand that his Royal Highness was ready to transfer his interest in the premises to her Ma jesty ; b. utitis said he has recently received an inti- mation that the arrangement, if carried into effect, would be attended with inconvenience and dissatis- faction in a certain quarter. Wishing to accommo- date on the one side, fearful of offending on the other, and standing in the same relation to both-, the situation of peculiar difficulty and delicacy in which he is placed must, in every just and liberal mind, ac- quit. his lloval Highness of all blame in this transac- tion.

Thursday the Common Council of the city of London met to consider the expediency of petitioning Parliament for the restitution of the Queen's name to the liturgy, and for the full restoration of her Majesty's rights and privileges. The resolutions were carried without a divi- sion. The Dnke of Portland, as Lord- Lieutenant of the county of Middlesex, has, in pursuance of a requisition for that purpose, fixed Tuesday the 16th instant for a general meeting of the Freeholders of that county, at the Mermaid, at Hackney, for taking into consideration the propriety of petitioning the House of Commons for a constitutional. Reform in the representation of the people 111 Parliament. The Bank of England commenced paying the di- vidends on Tuesday, amounting to about ten mil- lions sterling. Every day brings with it new failures in the loyal addressing system resorted to bv Ministers, and not . - . . . merely simple but compound failures, which increase their difficulties. A Derby County Meeting was held on Monday last for the purpose of voting a Loval Address ; hot an amended Address, moved by the Duke of Devonshire, was carried bv accla- mation. Thus every county from which Ministers solicit an approval of tlifir conduct, directly or indi - rectly, rejects their claim. The Address is either amended by an unqualified condemnation, or, if carried in its original state, is accompanied with a disavowal of any view to their conduct. We have also to notice the meetings of four Counties, Budfords- hire, Hampshire, Cheshire, and Shropshire, con- vened for the purpose of ascertaining flic sentiments of . the inhabitants respectively upon the pretensions of the j present Cabinet. . The ttvo former of these were summon- j ed publicly, and Without the intervention of any trick or ; stratagem, with the sincere desire of collecting, the real • opinions of the Freeholders. The two latter were called } tit very short notices, for the purpose of voting Ministe- rial Addresses, and preventing ail discussion upon the Cabinet. At the Bedfordshire and Hampshire Meetings, Resolutions were adopted by overwhelming majorities, condemning the Ministers, and declaring ifiem Unworthy of the confidence of tile King or of tile people. The Right Honourable C. B. Bathurst has en- tered upon office as President of the Board of Con- troul.

A meeting of Merchants, Bankers, & c. of the City of London, was held 011 Thursday at the City of London Tavern, when a loyal Declaration was agreed to, declaring their " firm and unalterable purpose to uphold our vener- able and happy Constitution, composed of King, Lords, and Commons, against all and every attempt to alter or subvert it, and to maintain, in all its purity, our holy and revered religion ; regretting the Pleasures which abound to destroy these sources- of present enjoyment and of future consolation ; and trusting the laws will be enforced to de- ter and to punish all who, by their factious or blasphe- mous proceedings, wish fo deprive the subjects of this great and free country of these inestimable blessings."— The meeting which brought forth this loyal Declaration having been composed exclusively of the friends of the Minister, we know that measures are now taking to coun- teract. the impression which it is intended to make, by af- fording to all Merchants and Bankers of the City who may dissent from it an opportunity of expressing their senti- ments.

It is with the most poignant regret we have to com- municate the melancholy fate of the Abedna transport, o'f 328 tons, tinder the charge of Lieut. Mudge, of the Royal Navy, which sailed from Greenock, in October last, with settlers for the Cape of Good Hope. On the 25th Nov. about noon, in lat. 4. deg. 50. mill, N. and longitude 25 deg. 30 min. W. the Aheona unfor- tunately caught file, and was burnt, under circumstan- ces of the most awful and distressing nature. Out of a crew of 21 persons, and 140 emigrants, men, women, and children, making a total of 1G1 persons, only 49 are sav- ed. These are " happily all safely landed at Lisbon ; and have subseqently sailed in the Royal Charlotte merchant brig, for Greenock, except ten orphan boys, whom the Gentlemen of the British Factory, at Lisbon, have taken under their kind protection. The fire broke out in the after store- room, whilst the chief- mate was occupied in some necessary business there ; and such was the a. vful progress of the flames, that only three small boats could lie got overboard, before the flames consumed the tackle, See. necessary fur hoisting out the long boat. In these three small boats, forty- nine persons were re- ceived on board, with so scanty a supply of provisions, that the'consequences must have been almost equally dreadful with the untimely fate of those left onboard, had not a Portuguese ship from Balda, bound to Lisbon, most providentially fallen in with them at day* light next morning, and received them 011 board, in which they were safely and hospitably conveyed to Lisbon, after cruising about the fatal spot till noon, in hopes of descry- ing some of the miserable sufferers who might have clung to parts of the wreck, but without success. Of a crew consisting of twenty- one persons, fourteen are saved, including Lieutenant Mudge. the Agent ; Mr. Fisher, the Surgeon ; the Master of the ship, and second mate— the first mate, in the most feeling manner, refusing to go into the boats, saying that lie would abide the fate of those left 011 board. Of the emigrants, consisting 111 all of 51 men, 24 wo- men, 55 hoys, and 30 girls, only 10 men, 5 women, 16 boys, and 6 girls are saved. NAMES OF PERSONS SAVFtl. Lieut. Mudge, Agent, R. N.

DfjNDEE, Jan. 12, The briganfine Olive, of thi » port, with a cargo of flax and . iintseed, from Riga, wa « lost during the night of Friday the 5, th, off the coast .0* Fife. About, midnight, she drove ashore at Wormiston* a mile northward of the C'arr, Roclt ; and a heavy gale blowing from east south- east ( accompanied by a shower of show and hail), she was carried about half a mile over the rocks towards the main. The. vessel struck, fell over tipon the larboard- side, and bilged and filled with water. The night was extremely and the sea tempestuous, The crew, eight in number, endeavoured to gain the rigging ; but a heavy sea breaking over the vessel, swept four of them away. The other four clung to the rigging till about seven o'clock neqft morning ; when, bbipg quits exhausted and benumbed with cold, they crept slowly down to the cabin. In about an hour afterwards, the wreck was observed from the shore; and the news spread- ing ranidiv, the whole neighbourhood was around. A number of persbns succeeded in getting to the vessel, and found the survivors in a state of insensibility. They were immediately conveyed ashore to the house of Mrs, Gray, at Wormiston, and put to bed, where they were treated with the utmost tenderness and attention. Lord Kelly sent some linens and other articles for their use Mr. Todd of lialcombie, and Mr. Staig, are warmly ap - plauded for their humane exeitious ; and indeed great praise is due to the whole neighbourhood. The vessel is a complete wreck ; the greater part of the bottom and tha wholfi of the larboard- side are stove in. The masts ana part of the rigging and saibare saved ( though in a damag- ed state), and about fifty tons of flax, and five barrels of lintseed. The persons saved are Peter Barclay, master ; James Ogilvie ( owner's son), mate; John Robertson, Seaman ; and John Mackintosh, carpenter ( a passenger.) Those drowned are James Alison, Charles Scott, Jona- than Fitch ell, seamen ; and George Ferrier apprentice. The Cornbro', belonging to the same owner ( Mr. Ogilvie), has been amissing these two months j and it is generally supposed, she has foundered at sea 011 her voyage from Riga to this port.

On Friday, the 29ih December, an action of divorce, at the instance of Lord Erskine against Lady Erskine, his wife, for adultery, alleged to have been committed in England, was fi nally disposed of by the Commissary Court of Edinburgh." • In defence against that action, Lady Erskir. e had plead- ed, that she was not amenable to the jurisdiction, b'ecausd she had never been in Scotland but for a few hours, w hen she vv- aj married to the pursuer at Gretna ; and because the true and proper domicile of both parties had, since their marriage, as well as for many years before, beeti exclusively in England, where alone they had a fixid re- sidence, home, and establishment, although Lord Ers- kine himself was by birth a Scotsivin, and had been on a visit in Scotland a short time previous to the date of his action. Her Ladyship also positively denied the truth of the accusation. Upon. t'ne other hand, Lord Erskine, in his condescend- ence, alleged that he had resided in Edinburgh for ( he space of forty days previous to the date of t5e action, which residence, be contended, was by law a sufficient domicile ; but he did not deny that bis permanent residence and establishment, and the home of both parties, were in England, where Lady Erskinc had always remained dur- ing her coverture. At the close of the debate. Lord Erskinc, in a minute lodged by him, spontaneously stated, that Lady Erskine had for some time been under restraint while he was iii Scotland ; but no such circumstance had been alledgcd or founded upon by her. His Lordship did not, however, deny in any respect Lady Erskine's allegations, that at the date of the action, the true and proper domicile of both parties, by the law of which the sufcessieil to the personal estate of either would have been governed in case of dyin" intestate, was in England ; and finding her objection to the jurisdiction 011 these grounds to be seriously main- tained. his Lordship, in his minute, eipropria motii, staled that he should abandon this suite, and institute a new or, e in the English Consistorial Court. Ladv Krs- skine was therefore, of consent, assOili2ed with expences. BIRTHS. On the 11 th inst. in Albany Street, Lady John Camp- bell, of a son.

The kingdom of Portugal, with which we have been intimately connected, and in the welfare of wjiich we take a lively interest, proceeds in the consolidation of its new Government', with energy and wisdom. With the excellent disposition which his appeared in the great body of the people, as well as those to whom the management of public aflairs has been confided, for establishing on liberal principles such a Constitution as to meet the wishes, anil answer the expectation of all true friends ot the country, a corresponding inclination, on the part ot the old Government, was only'wanting to confirm the best hopes of the nation. This great desidera- tum. without which the victory would have been incomplete, has been now attained in a manner which has spread universal joy and satisfaction throughout Lisbon, in which the kingdom in general will immediately participate. The answer of the King to the first dispatches sent over by the old Regency, as regarded the revolution in Oporto, has been received ; and under all circumstances, is of a most gratifying nature, such as has made a strong impression on the people of the Portuguese capital. King JOHN, in the spirit of conciliation and huma- nity, bv w hich his character is distinguished, dis- J regarding the unfavourable representations which j the Ex- Regency had, judging from the tenor of l their subsequent conduct, given of the revolt of his subjects, confined, as he believed from the state- ments sent him, t. s. The Louisa has excellent accommodation for Passengers, being fitted out on purpose for the trade. At Home, the war of addresses continues with almost unabated vigour; and was the importance of the question regarding the conduct of his Majesty ' s Ministers to be estimated, from the activity which prevails throughout the country in collecting the public opinion, it has seldom been equalled, and certainly never surpassed, by any question at any former period. The daily failure of this addressing system, it might be supposed, would put a- speedy termination to a meashre thus calculated to cover its authors with merited disgrace. But Ministers cling to the last shred of hope, and shew the ut- most reluctance to quit the field, unwilling to yield even to numbers, or to allow the possibility of their being defeated. The fact of their discomfiture is, however, no longer to be doubted; and if any weight is found due to the great majority of the nation, uniting in one common sentiment of dis- ' o approbation of the public measures, we may con- sider it equally certain, that those from whom they emanated, aud to whom we owe our present heavy grievances, must speedily resign their situations, and give place to men more worthy of and possess- ing the confidence of the people. An upright Ministry, with honest intentions, might, by the reformation of prevailing abuses, and a due regard to economy in husbanding our resources, yet do much to raise our fallen country, and rescue it from impending ruin. From what we sec passing be- fore us, it is evident, that every means which corrupt influence can command will be used, and " no stone left unturned" to bolster up the tottering system, by doing away the effects of that scheme which has proved so unsuccessful, and on which they seemed to place their dependence. It has been the great business of nearly all the counties of Scotland to conceal the real object of their adulatory addresses, by general expressions of loyalty and attachment to the King and Constitution ; and the supporters of these say, that they are neither meant to express approbation or disapprobation of Ministry. But these fallacious pretences have readily been detected', as unworthy attempts to insure unanimity, by ren- dering the matter palatable to all, and thus strengthen the hands of those very men, who have done so much to injure the best interests of their King and country, which it is the professed inten- tion strenuously to support.

In a spirit of for- bearance and moderation, very different from that by which his worthy Representatives in Europe were actuated, his Majesty agrees to bury in obli- vion what is past, and authorizes the convocation of the Cortes, as directed by the old Regency. In conclusion he assures his subjects in Portugal, that he or one of Ins sons will soon be with them again. Such a proof of paternal regard to their welfare, such assurance of his attention to their interest, has banished all apprehensions, and perfectly satisfied his subjects of a successful issue of their affairs.— The elections in. the mean time are conducted in the way most likelv to insure permanent advantage- to the country, and to consolidate the new system. The people hail with joy and enthusiasm, the happy prosjiect which the returns of the persons elected affords, all of them being men distinguished alike for their talents and attainments, as for their patriotism and their zeal for the new Constitution. In a pre- ceding column will be found, a very important State Paper, the Manifesto of the Portuguese Nation to the Sovereigns and People of Europe. This inter- esting document, calculated so much to impress the nations of Europe, and Great Britain in particular, details in the njost feeling terms the calamities to which that kingdom litis long been subjected. The sufferings and degradation of the nation for many years are stfonglv represented, the causes described and enumerated, especially the corrupt administra- tion of the Government, and prevalent mal- adminis- tration in every departtnentof state, such as to render the pressure of those accumulated evils no longer to- lerable, and the recent changes the unavoidable re- sult and necessary consequence. It is couched in manly language, expressive of a sense of their wrongs, and of their determination to redress thetn, while it breathes an animated spirit of resisting with vigour, any attempts on the part of other Govern- ments to interfere in their internal affairs, or reduce them to that state of debasement and slavery from which they have happily been emancipated. The Congress of the allied Sovereigns, it is now ascertained, will take place at Laybach, where the authorities have been officially charged to select lodgings for the Courts and their suites. King FERDINAND is, in the mean time, said to have ar- rived at Lnvbach ; but report says, some time must probably elapse before the conferences commence. The Prince Vicar General, Regent of Naples, has, on the occasion of the departure of his august Father, issued a Proclamation on assuming his new functions, which exhibits a gratifying proof of his devotion to the new Constitution. " 1 shall," says the Prince, " redouble my anxiety and my la- bours for your welfare, always pursuing exactly the career pointed out by the Constitution to which we have sworn. I feel secure, however, that you will always listen to my voice when in concord with that Constitution. This is tfve more necessary, since it is by the prudence of your conduct-, at once firm of Lanark, stands proudly pre- eminent, by having, in a Meeting of 18t Freeholders, had a majority of 4 against the original Address. In England, the triumph of patriotism and true constitutional loyalty is complete and perfect, all the great and leadincr counties having, nuuiv of them unanimous- lv, expressed their decided and unqualified disap- probation of the conduct of Ministers. We feel much pleasure in having authority for inform- ing the public, that the Master and Crew of the late brig Charles, of this port, have, after a tedious trial for the pretended murder of the Spanish Pilot, who was received on board the vessel at Teneriffe. and who unfortunately, in a state of insanity, threw himself overboard in the silence of night, been completely acquitted of the charge and false accusation. The Master, ROBERT BRODIE, has arrived in London, and one of the crew, JOHN TUHNRIHX, in Plymouth ; who report, that the rest of the crew have been enlarged from prison, and will be sent to Britain how soon vessels can begot to convey them. This case is ot a most distressing and altogether tin. precedented nature. The vessel, after the crew were taken from on board by military force, was refused to be given up to the British Consul, and having been insuffi- ciently moored, was driven upon the rocks at Port Oratava, Tenerifl'e, and dashed to pieces ; the wreck was seized as droits or rights by the Spanish Government, aud sold for its behoof. The hardships and privations experienced by the crew have been great indeed, and such as it is only surprising they were able to surmount ; aud but for the humane and praiseworthy exertions of G. STUART BRUCE, Esq; Consul General, manifested in their behalf, the lives of all of them would, to a certainty, have fallen a sacrifice to their cruel and barbarous treatment. The crew being now set at liberty, we hope the case will be taken up with spirit by the British Government, so as ample indemnification may be obtained, both to the Owners " of the Vessel for the loss of their property, and to the Crew for their imprisonment of almost three years, which has certainly been a gross violation of the law of nations. The declining state of the revenue, in spite of the extraordinary exertions to keep it up, is suf- ficiently indicative of the depressed state of the country, the prosperity of which cannot possibly be expected, while a grinding taxation paralyses every effort for its relief. The Courier itself, the organ of Administration, is compelled to admit, that the produce of the quarter just ended is £ 309,000 less than that of the corresponding quarter of last year.— On the whole year, there is an apparent increase of £ 2,358,000 ; but as additional taxes, calculated to produce £ 3,190.000 have since been imposed, there is a real deficiency in the entire revenue of the present year, as compared with the last, of about one million. The fate of a country Struggling under such a system cannot be doubtful, especially when it is considered, that each individual is not only paving about a third part of his income, but also a part of that capital, by the agency of which his in- come arises. Where this must soon carry us. if nor remedied, no discernment is necessary to dis- cover. The Anniversary Dinner given at Edinburgh, on the 12th inst. in conuflemoratidB of the immortal Statesman and Patriot, the Right Hon. CIIAULES JAMES FOX, was attended by the greatest assem- blage of men of rank, talent, and respectability, ever known on any occasion in this country ; and opened tile enlivening prospect of a zeal in the cause of Reform not to be subdued, until this great object, on which the safety of the countrv depends, shall be fully accomplished. The following excel- lent observations and particulars, we copy with pleasure from the Supplement to the Scotsman : We doubt not that all who were present will remember the meeting, while memory remains, with pride and ex- ultation. The impressions then made could not fail to reach the soul, and they will continue to operate as pow- erful auxiliaries to every magnanimous or patriotic reso- lution which can betaken in after life. The most inveter- ate enemies of liberal principles will not venture to assert, that this meeting was not attended by rank, and property, and talents, and numbers. Four hundred and seventy- five gentlemen dinedon Friday last at the Waterloo Hotel; and a great number more, who, from the fear of being called out of town, and various other reasons, did not apply for tickets of admission until shortly before the meeting, were disappointed, through the impossibility of procuring ac- commodation for them at so late a period. But although the great room u as oppressively crowded after dinner— even with those who did procure admission— every inconve- nience was submitted to with the utmost good temper. The whole assembly seemed animated with one heart and one mind ; but how could it be otherwise, when such an intellec tual feast was before thetn ? The hearts of all hail to respond only to seuiiments which will be acknowledged and applauded wherever cultivation of intellect is united gratitude, r ecu's ed the very scasotaUe e:, i; when I state, that 20 had not left, . w hen Lord Uoss. y at a quarter from two o'clock, gave gooH night, when t! t.; company rose spontaneously, and in about 10 minutes m/ t an individual was in the rooms. Very much the rev,-. a, of order was observed by the Heaven- born Statesman"* adherents; for, with all the smutty toasts and Billings- gate songs, aided with £ 500 worth of extra wine gratis, alias from the Pitt Club or Treasury, they began to slink oil'by 10 o'clock, and broke up soon after 12. Of all speakers I ever heard, I think . Mr. LAHHTOS is the first." NAVAL INTELLIGENCE.

The Pri nee, Cobourg, also belonging to Peterhead, had sailed from Sti John's sometime previous. The John, Allan, arrived at Poole on the 13th inst. from St. John's, New Brunswick ; sailed on the 30th November, and on the 23d December made the EriglLIi Channel, jn the mouth of which, to the westward of Seilly hc has been beating since, with hard gales from the eastward : but only lost a small part of his bulwarks in consequence.

Mr. M'Donold of Stafiais reported to have said, at the Lanark County Meeting, that should the Constitution he again attacked, it was attacked at Bonnymuir— the Aristocracy would he the first to storsn the breach in de- fence of that Constitution, and to avert the storms with which ' it ever may he threatened."— Mercury, Jan. 15. We never pretend to dispute with a Highland Chieftain, ( and from the title we presume the spokesman to be one.) but we may venture perhaps to say, that we never heard of breaches stormed, unless in the way of attack, nor knew how storming a breach may avert storms with which the Constitution may ever be threatened. We have morals of the new School, aud such eloquence is certainly not of the old. INI ii. LOOK HA UT of Camhusnethan { jave lately at a public Meeting, as a reason for not trespassing upun the time of the Noblemen and Gentlemen, that he was a bad and in- distinct speaker, and ( shortened his speech. We highly ap- prove of the candour and good sense of the Hon.

It is now understood that Ministers tendered their re- signations immediately after the failure of the Bill of Pains * and Penalties ; but were prevailed on to retain them. Should the arrangement which they mean to propose for the Queen, on the meeting of Parliament, not meet the support of a decided majority of the House of Commons, it is said they are determined to remain no longer in ofiace. Globe. Ministers are now actively employed in mustering all their Parliamentary friends. They will have a meeting on Saturday, at which a return will be made of their strength. Their future proceeding will be regulated l> y the- re » ult. Not satisfied with the insult offered to the Queen of de- laying the message of- the death of her Majesty's brother six days, the Ministers have inserted in The Gazette, " the death of a brother of the late Duke of Brunswick," with- out having taken any uotice of his being a brother of her Majesty. A public meeting was held at IT Arcy's rooms, Dublin, on Thursday tast, on the subject of. the late violent dis- persion of the late County Meeting at Kilmaiuhanu Colonel Talbot was in the Chair. Mr. Finlay read the report of the proceedings of the Committee appointed to obtain redress for that outrage since the last meeting. The Committee, he said, had presented an Address to the Lord Lieutenant on the subject, but no answer was return- ed. Mr. Curran concluded a long and able speech witfi moving a Petition to be presented to both Houses of Par- liament. It was nearly a transcript of the Memorial U\ the Lord Lieutenant. The motion was carried with ac4 clamation. A letter was read from Dean Ponsonby de- clining to attend the meeting, being occupied with the important duties of his clerical profession, but expressing his unqualified disapprobation of the measures pursued ai 4he late County Meeting. Messrs. O'Connell, Clinch,, and Macdonnel spoke at considerable length. Frankfort Papers to the 8th inst. have been received.— The following is the only article in them that has not been anticipated from other sources of intelligence : — VIKNNA, Dec. 30.— However the negociations with, she King of Naples may turnout, it is affirmed by some persons, th. it at all events our Austrian Army of Obser- vation will occupy the fortresses of the kingdom of Naples for five or six years. The Northern Powers, it is added, are perfectly agreed on this measure, which is deemed necessary to the security of all truly. FOUCHE, Duke of Otranto, died at Trieste, on the 2Sth of Dcceml^ r.
