SIR, WHETHER it is commo- n for you or not to be ad- dressed by a Female, I do not know ; yet, in this in- stance, I apply myself to you, that I may, in part at least, vindicate some allusions in a Letter contained in your paper of Saturday last, although the step may not be ex- actly political. I, Mr. Editor, am that unfortunate per- son, who is gifted with some good qualities, enumerated by A Husband; besides a lover of scandal, if you take his word for it, a propagator and a principal member of a Club which, without reserve, he would have you infer handles characters at its own discretion. My husband then, Sir, who signs himself^ Husband. is indeed kind, gentle, and indulging ; it isto him I owe the many opportunities I have of exercising charity among my poor neighbours ; yet he has many failings, and I am induced, from the substance of his letter, to communi- cate a few of them, those in particular which were the means of first suggesting to mp and some of my similar- ly situated neighbours, the propriety of establishing this Club, which he feels himself SQ called upon to be offend e: l with. In the first place, he is whimsical, and nicely so ; to- day he will have tea to breakfast, with an egg put in boil- ing water for a single minute ; to- morrow, perhaps, he will fancy the tea to be infused with unboiled water, disre- lish his favourite toast and fresh butter sprinkled with salt, and not unlikely would prefer a cup of strong coffee w ith out sugar, and a piece of flour scone thinly'tinged with pickled butter: all this I quietly submit to, but, ( which is not seldom) when late of rising, he wants a beef steak and a bottle of porter ; then it is that I grjimble, and get peevish, his depravity 6f stomach vexes me, the more so as it arises from stopping out. at nights. In the second place, which is very bad, he has been a great reader of Paine^ s Age of lie< isivjir and such like books, so that he is continually arguing with me, unwilling as X am to enter into such disputes, because I am by no means able to cope with his reasoning and quoting, for 1 consi- er Fame as giying pain to the soul, and anxiety to the mind, and mischief making in the hands of a woman. Lastly, his worst of propensities, and my worst evil i- j, his being connected with a Club, which I have long j known to be a Card one. Mv remonstances have been all II AVI NG performed a short quarantine of two weeks> we received pratique, that is, liberty to come ashore avA transact any business. Leghorn " is a well fortified place* especially towards the land : but towards the sea I think it is rathe!* weak, having few cr no guns exeept at the mole, which is strougly defended. Perhaps maybe thought that the water is too shallow before the body of the town, for large ships to approach near enough to do £ rear execution j but 1 believe, if it came to a trial, tha con'rary would be found by experience, aud it would be a very easy matter to bombard it. The houses of Leghorn in general are lofty, and make a | ffcod apye^ HKOi ; several of 4hem art* seven stories lijgb, and the roofs generally projecfrthree ot\ four feet over the Nflptofr mxk:*; siteity!* uf tfhich one secure if* rainy weather. No body lives on the ground fJ « : dr here, which, if it is not a shop, is made a warehouse or lumber - room. Some of the churches are very magnificent, ajid all of them adorne'd with fine paintings and statuary. Tbat de- dica'ed to St. Catharine of Sens, will be a very grand, church when it is . finished. It has a noble colonnade or marble, and a high octagon cupola, which overtops tin* whole town. In the Trinity Church is a fine marble statu. v of Edward the ConlVssor, with this title, G. Edwardus Angliaj Rex : and in the same,. church I saw a tombstone with this inscription, Petrus Yarvis, nobilis Anglus des Sandvich totus flagrans charitate erga catholicam . fidem ; ideo omnia sua ecclesise, degenis, captivis tradidit, cor- poi i quoq,. suo hie requiem dedit. The ai\ ernoou that I came ashore, I had an oppor- tunity of seeing ono^ of their processions. As I tvas pass- ing by one of their . churches, the door being open, curio- sity led- me in. v They were just then making ready t » begin, the procession. A man went before with a long pole in bis hand, having a golden cross on the end of it : then followed the Priest clad in white, with the host covered, walking under a canopy supported by four men, ari* d surrounded by others carrying large wax candles.— As soon as they went out of the Church door, all thes people in'the street immediately dropt down upon their knees, and Continued in that posture till the procession, was past. Just without the. wall, by the aid harboun stands a* noble marble statue of one of the Great'Dukes, with four , slaves chained to the corners of his pedes: d. 11 is not agreed upon, what great Duke is here represented ; soma, say Ferdinand the First, others Alexander the First: nor is ii better known who was the artist, some affirminglt to have been Donatelli, others Pietra Tacca ; but whoever is designed, and whoever, was the designer, the work- manship is. exquisite. The marble statue stands erect, look< ng towards the harbour, with a stern countenance : ,: nder his feet lies a turban and other Turkish ornaments,'. The four slaves are of cast metal, their hands behind the r backs, chained to the pedestal. One of them is a very old man, the other three are stoat young fellows. Their several attitudes are admirably well expressed : every muscle and vein appears very strong and natural, an J not the minutest tiling is neglected. Melancholy, and a certain slavish despondency, appear in their countenances in a very striking manner, especially in that of the old inan- . , They have a common traditional amount that tbesa statues were' erected on the following occasion. Tno bra? cn men, say they, were four Turkish pirates, ths iajh^ iWind his. jhrte sons, taken^ and brought mto t1> 4? harbour by tlie great Duke's son, who immediately wet.*,' ashore to acquaint his father, with his success, before ha h d performed quarantine. The Duke, though glad at his son's success, was greatly afflicted for his imprudence in coming ashore : for he was obliged, according to the strictness of the laws concerning quarantine, to cause him' to be put to death. However, in order to perpetuate the memory of this event, he caused the statue of his son, and those of the four slaves, to be erected in the manner above described., Leghorn being a free port, is a place of vast trade, by far the greatest of any iu Italy. The produce of the manufactures of Florence, Pisa, and Lucca, are brought hither and shipped, off. Mr. Addison lias observed, in his remarks on Italy, that Leghorn has accidentally done what the greatest fetch of polities would have found dif- ficult to have brought about, for it lias almost unpeopled Pisa, if we compare it with what it was formerly, and every day lessens tlienttmber o^ the inhabitants Of Florence. This does rtot only weaken those places, but at the same time turns many of the busiest spirits from their old no- tions of honour and liberty to the thoughts of traliic and merchandise. The people ber^ are very gay and polite. They have an O^ iera three or four times a week, one of which gene- rally happens on a Sunday evening. Their Sunday com- mences on Saturday at sun- set. In the Opera House there are'no open galleries, but these are four rows of boxes quite round, except where the stage is. There i* one circumstance " in the Italian Operas, that, T must ac- knowledge, gives me great dis^ Ost, though admired by those who pretend to be of a refined taste ; I mean, the singing or rather squeaking of the eunuchs.

Veil may dasilv imagine to yourself, the pleasure I took in this agreeable change of scenes ; for, except at Gibraltar, where there is nothing almost to be seen but the hard solid rock, I ha » e not b* en ashore at any place, nor met With such entertainment since we left England, which its now about five months. When one is at sea, the continual repetition of the same scene's, and being always confined to the same com- pany, tontracts a kind of rust and gloominess on the mind, with a certain'cloysorne weariness, which is immediately dispelled by such rural prospects as I have mentioned.— J J,, iv often at sea, have I envied the happiness of those who have it in their power to take an eatly refreshing walk, at this delightful season of tlie year, and to observe the various productions of nature, and their progress, both in the garden and in the field ! O Fortunatos uimium, sua si bona norint, Agricolas 1 Having always had a particular pleasure in viewing a Country from the top of a hill, where one has an extensive • prospect, I went the other day to the top of Monte Negro, j which is about four or five miles from hence. In my way | I passed by several ntat farm houses, and gardens. One may walk in theso gardens without interruption. In most of them 1 observed a machine, which is very con- venient for watering the ground. The) have a deep well, over which is a wheel perpendicular, with a rope, to which at convenient distances are fixed buckets, reaching to the surface ofthe water : these fill as the wheel turns round, and as soon as they mount to the top of it, empty themselves into a long trough, which carries the water to a canal divided into several branches, on purpose to con- vey it to any part of the garden they have a mind. This thev can easilv do, as the ground is level, by means of a Small furrow, which they dam up here and there, and throw the water over the ground with a shovel. I passed bv several flekls of wheat, already in full ear. The fields make a fine uniform appearance as the corn is all sowed ill drills or rows, and they promise a very plentiful harvest. By the way side. I observed a vast number of lizards, basking themselves in the sun, which, on approaching them, rustled away, and concealed themselves among the Corn or hedges. At last I ascended the summit of Monte Negro, where I had an extensive and entertaining prospect of the distant m aintains, the adjacent country, and the neighbouring sea, covered with small barks near the shore. About me round I saw Hill, dale, and shady woods, and sunny plains. MILTON. 1 was indeed a little fatigued before I reached the top of this hill, but was amply recompensed by enjoying the pure, fresh air, and feasting my eyes for about half an hour, in observing the variety of prospects before me. On the western side, near the top, is a large and mag- nificent Church, dedicated to the Blessed Virgin, in which they have her image, called Madonna di Monte Negro, which is saM to have preserved Leghorn miraculously from the plague ; for when it raged at Marseilles, a Vessel came from thence with the infection aboard, and landed some of her cargo, before it was known that sin- had the contagious distemper ; and as this was attended with no bad consequences, it was ascribed to the protec- tion of Madonna di Monte Negro. The Church is in a must delightful situation, being surrounded with a plea! sant wood, and having a small purling rivulet running close by it. From this Church to Leghorn there is a very good coach road. Mr. Bay says, there is a kind of stone found on Monte Negro, called by the Italians Petri Lattaria, or the Milky Stone, which, being pulve- rised, makes very good hair powder. As our time here is very short, I have endeavoured to make the best use of it I could, and to see as much of Italy as possible. I made a short excursion to Pisa, ^ hich is 15 miles distant from hence, with three others in company. We hired two Calashes, ( the ordinary post chaises of this country) and had a most agreeable journey. Soon after we got without the walls of Leghorn, the road becomes a fine avenue, planted on each side with tall trees, the lower branches of which ale cutoff, and leave the view quite cpen and uninterrupted. A little farther on the prospcct opens more and more, and presents the eye with most beautiful and diversified landscapes. And soon afterwards we plunge into the middle of a wood, where the view is entirely confined to the surrounding branches of the trees, with the shrubs and herbage, for a Considerable way. This wood consists chiefly of cork trees, elms, and oaks, especially an oak called by the Italians Lichii. It has a very small leaf, and is esteem- ed for its hardness and solidity. Tamarisks grow here in great plenty. Leaving- this wood, the road leads through a spacious lawn, full of tattle feeding ; most of them are of a grey or dun colour, and much inferior in size to the English bullocks. After the lawn, we enter an avenue of about two miles in length, where the prospect is closed by { lie square tower of St. Peter's Church, an old Gothic Structure, built as they ghe out, in memory of that Apostle's landing there in his way from Antioch to Rome -. they show an ancient Latin inscription in the Church to that purpose, and pretend to shew the altar where he said his first mass, with several other memorable things, equally absurd and ridiculous. From this Church to fisa, which is about four miles distant, nothing almost }*> to be seen but vineyards on each side of the way, the viuc- s loaded with grapes hanging in clustering festoons, between the barren trees which are plained on purpose to support them. At length we arrive at Pisa, and enter the town passing by the galley mole. A little within the gate, on the left hand, we saw a little old Chapel, adorned on the outside with the statue of our Saviour, and those of the twelve Apostles, with several other saints. It is said to have been built by a blind man, who collected so much money, as he sat a begging on the spot where it stands. Pisa is a large and regular city. The streets are broad and well paved, and the houses in general are lofty and elegantly built; those ofthe C- valieri, or Noblemen, are very grand and magnificent. There are seveial fine Churches ifc Pisa ; but the Cathedral, which is dedicated to St. John, greatly surpasses all the rest: they call it II Domo, or the Dome. It is greatly admired by travellers, together with the Baptistry, the Campo Santo, and the leaning tower, which are all built chiefly of white marble, and very near one another. The Cathedral is remarkable for its noble brazen gates, on which is curiously represented, in basso relievo, the history of our Saviour and the blessed Virgin, set off with ornaments of foliage, fruit, birds, and animals. The roof of this Church, which is richly gilded, is sup- ported by a double colonnade, consisting of 80 noble marble columns, each of which is one solid piece. The sides are mostly hung with red velvet, and the altars ate Verv grand and richly ornamented. While we were in the' Church they were performing High Mass, a sacred Concert of Music. Near the west end of this Cathedral is the Baptistry, in the middle of it is a large font, into which water runs continually. The pulpit is of marble curiously cut. and hard by it is a marble tomb stone, the streaks of which form something like the effigies of a friar : arid this they show strangers as a most wonderful opera- tion of nature.- The Baptistry ( being quite round) has the effect of a whispering gallery, for if you apply your ear close to the wall, and another apply his lips at the op- posite side, antl whisper ever so low, you ca » hear dis- tinctly what he says. A t the other end of the Cathedral is the Campanile or Leaning Tower, which has raised the admiration, and puzzled the understanding of many that have visited it— At first sight it seems as if it was just going to fall. Some think the foundation of it has sunk on one side, and others imagine it has been contrived so by the architect on pur- pose" as it is well known, from the principles of mecha- nics,' that a cylinder, or any oblong body, will incline without falling, till a line from the center of gravity falls without the base : but' however true this principle may be in itself, 1 think it makes but a very aukward experi- ment in architecture. The perpendicular height of this tower, as I was informed by our guide, is 94 braces, of 23 inches each, which make 180 feet 2 inches ; and the distance from the base to a perpendicular let fall from the top, is f>{. braces, almost 12 feet. On the outside, at proper distances, above one another, it has seven rows of marble pillars that, go quite round. We ascended to the top of it by a spiral stair within, of 293 steps. One is quite out ( if breath before he gets up, but as k commands a fine prospect of the town and adjacent country, and affords a refreshing draught of pure, cool air, we thought ourselves sufficiently rev.' artled f"> r our troi-. ble. There are two huge bells, with six small ones in it, which is tftc reason of its being called Campanile. Behind the Cathedral is the Campo Santo, which is an oblong square enclosed with a broad portico. The earth whiclv composes the burial- ground is said to bavt been brought fram the TToU Land, paintings in fresco, representing the watte are full of Scripture history and some remarkable transactions of the saints. These are. all executed in a very lively and expressive manner. The pavement is all of marble, under which lie interred several of the noble familie;? of Pisa. In the middle of the area is a great number of antiquities, Such as frag- ments of statues* pillars, and other ornaments of heathen temples* The river A mo runs through the middle of the town, over which are three beautiful bridges. This is a dead muddy river, and hardly fit for the purposes of drinking j or washing ; wherefore they have a noble aqueduct, coii- ' sisting of near 5000 arches, which brings the water into the town from a place about G or ? miles distant. About a mile out of town, at the foot of a hill, is a fine hot- bath, which is very much frequented. I had not time to visit the Physic Garden, where there is a curious collection of medicinal plants, and a great many exotic^ ; nor had I leisure, and an opportunity of gratifying my curiosity in several other particulars, as I could have wished. Pisa is a very ancient city, having been built even be- ay j fore the Trojan war, according to Virgil's opinion. At ' ~ ! present it is the See of an Archbishop, founded by ; Urban II. in the year 1092. The Council of Pisa, in | HOfi. is famous for deposing the two Antipopes, Benedict ; the XI I. and Gregory the XII. in whose stead they cho^ e Alexander the fiftiu I remain, & c. BANFF ADDRESSES. AT a Meeting of the Six Incorporated Trades of the Royal Burgh of Banff, held here, upon the 10th curt, in terms of a Requisition, the following Petitions and Addresses were UNANIMOUSLY voLed, in terms of Resolu- tions to that effect. Lanff, January 10, 1821. Unto the King's most Excellent Majesty, the humble Address and Petition of the Six Incorporated Trades of the Royal Burgh of Banff, in their Common Ilall assembled. J\[ aij it please your Majesty, WE, your Majesty's dutiful and most loyal subjects, the Convener, Deacons, and whole other Members of the Six Incorporated Trades of the Royal Burgh of Banff, beg leave to approach your MajesTy's Throne with undis- guised assurances of our sincere attachment to your Ma- jesty's person, and the principles of that happy Constitu- tion, ( purchased by the best blood and treasure of our forefathers) which placed your Majesty's illustrious Family on the Throne of these Realms; and also to ex- press our determination to support the dignity of the Crown, and the respect which is most justly due to all and every branch ofthe Royal Family. Impressed with these sentiments, we deeply deplore the present agitated state of the public mind, and the dangers and difficulties, in which the country is unfor- tunately involved ; and the private security of all classes of your Majesty's subjects invaded and endangered, by a system of ignorant and illiberal policy, pursued by your Majesty's Ministers for a series of years ; and which has now unfortunately become too apparent to escape your Majesty's observation. That these dangers and difficulties are daily becoming more conspicuous, by the itnprove- dent waste of the public treasury, and various other acts of mal- ad ministration, by which they have subjected themselves to general distrust and contempt; so much so, that in this populous district of country, hardly a remnant is to be found whom either persuasion or threats can induce even to give name to an Address approv- ing of their measures ; and, therefore, they appear no longer capable of managing the affairs of this great Empire with safety to the Throne, the Altar, and the People. We consider it, therefore, our duty, humbly to intreat your Majesty, to remove from your Majesty's Councils, those individuals by whose advice your Majesty, and the great body of your Majesty's subjects, have been involved in so many difficulties and calamities. And your Petitioners shall ever pray. Sec. Signed in name, and by the unanimous appointment ofthe Six Incorporated Trades, by JAMES JOHNSTON, CONVENER. on a former occasion, wticn the bases}, calumnies \ Verc circulated, and charges affecting her Majesty's life malici- ously laid against her, yet the highest Officers in the State pronounced ! ier Majesty innocent, arid declared it a base conspiracy against her honour and her life. And on the last occasion, the solemn pea! ofthe iiation itself has declared hei innocent, and marked the proceedings as originating in a base conspiracy, and an imposition on your Lordships* august assembly ; and all this arising, as your humble petitioners apprehend, from the simple fact, that such conspirators are not punished', nor their basest ac- tions even i$ ade the subject of judicial inquiry ; thus leav- ing the honour, the private security, and even the life of her illustrious Majesty to bo incessantly and openly assailed with impunity, and the laws made for the security and protection of the subject rendered a dead teller : Your Petitioners, therefore, pray your Honourable House will prevent the renewal of any measures whatever against her Majesty the Queen, and that you will imme- diately take the wisest and most effectual measures speedily to restore her Majesty to all her legitimate rights, honours, and dignities, and bring to punishment the authors and abettors of her M& jesty's innocent sufferings; and your Petitioners shall ever pray. Unto her Gracious Majesty CAROLINE AMELIA, QUEEN CONSORT of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, the dutiful and loyal Address of the Six Incorporated Trades ofthe Royal Burgh of Banff, in their Common Hall assembled. May it please your Majesty, WE your Majesty's dutiful subjects, the Convener, Deacons, and whole other Members of the Six Incor- porated Trades, with feelings of the most dutiful attach- ment and respect, hasten to join in that universal burst of applause and congratulation, so unequivocally display- ed in your Majesty's behalf by ail ranks of our country- men, on your Majesty's complete and glorious triumph over a formidable conspiracy, which basso forcibly exeit ed the indignation of all Europe, and which appears so atrocious as scarcely to find a parallel in the annals of history. But while we eagerly join in offering to your Majesty our spontaneous tribute of respect, we cannot refrain from expressing our indignation ofthe persevering male- volence of jour Majesty's implacable enemies, in their pursuit of a line of conduct, alike dangerous to the peace and safety of your Majesty, as it is to the Throne, the Altar, and the People; and in no instance has this, been more detectably displayed, than in their continued in- glorious efforts to crush an unprotected female, by a negative conduct in withholding her legitimate rights, after their boldest efforts, aided by venality and power, had been so signally defeated, even to tarnish her fair fame in the eyes ofthe world. But while the page of history will record to posterity the firmness and heroism displayed by your Majesty, under the most unparalleled innocent sufferings, it will not refrain from exposing to lasting infamy, the inglo rious acts of the authors and abettors of the many wrongs and indignities, by which your Majesty has been so re- peatedly pursued, nor the shameless manner, they have squandered the resources of a suffering people for the most u nh a 11 owed pu rposes And that your Majesty may be speedily restored to all your legitimate honours, rights, and dignities, and long continue the grace and ornament of Society, is our most ardent prayer. Given in our Hall, and signed in name and by ap- pointment of the Trades, by JAMES JOHNSTON, CONVENER. Unto the Right Honourable the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, in Parliament assembled — The humble Petition of the Six Incorporated Trades of the RoyalBurgh of Banff, in their Common Hall as- sembled, and of the Guildery and other Inhabitants thereof subscribing : Shewelk, WE, the Convener, Deacons, and whole other Mem- bers of the Six Incorporated Trades of the Royal Burgh of Banff, and the subscribing Members ofthe Guildry and other Inhabitants thereof, beg leave humbly to ap- proach the bar of your Lordships august Assembly, with feelings of the most profound veneration and respect. Though an humble body of individuals, living in a re- mote corner of his Majesty's dominions, uninfluenced by private ambition and strangers to the political intrigues of party or of power, yet we revere the ancient bulwarks of our venerable Constitution, and the laws established for its support and protection ; and, therefore, viewed with deep concern the recent proceedings of your Honourable House against her illustrious Majesty, the Queen Consort of Britain. Satisfied, in our own minds as we were of her Majesty's innocence from the beginning, we beheld with detestation the relentless disposition of her adversaries, and the foul and incessant calumnies of a hireling press, by which the virtues of our families were daily assailed, and the country inundated with immorality ; and fondly hop- ed, that the great question, which was justly denounced " derogatory to the Crown, and injurious to the best in- " terests ofthe country," would be finally set at rest on the withdrawing ofthe Bill of Pains and Penalties, and the consequent prorogation of Parliament, and that then her Majesty would be speedily restored to all ijer legiti- mate honours, rights, and privileges. These expectations, however, have not been realized ; and passing events seem to justify our fears, that some fresh muasures against her Majesty are still in contempla- tion. Your Honourable House cannot fail to recollect that, Unto the Honourable the Commons of Great Bri- tain in Parliament assembled, the Petition of the Six Incorporated Trades of the Royal Burgh of Banff, and of those other Inhabitants thereof who, concurring in their sentiments, have voluntarily affixed their names hereto. ITit m bly Sh ewelfi, THAT, influenced by feelings of pure loyalty fo the Sovereign, and of ardent attachment to the Constitution of the realm, and impressed with a deep anxiety for the preservation ofthe dignity ofthe Crown, and the inviolabi- lity of that Constitution, we approach the bar of your Honourable House with becoming respect, and beg per- mission to lay our sentiments briefly before you. Aware that, in conducting the concerns of private life to any useful or appropriate end. the utmost vigilance and diligence on the part of individuals are requisite ; and that all distraction of mind must be avoided, otherwise a neglect of the necessary duties must inevitably ensue — and entertaining a strong conviction, that, those principles which are proved by experience to be so necessary towards the right direction of individual conduct, apply with re- doubled force to public affairs, we deplore the circum- stances which have so long withdrawn the attention of the legislature from those duties which demand its paramount consideration. We dare not conceal, although we would guard our- selves from exaggerating the present afflicting situation of the kingdom, its commerce both foreign and internal al- most annihilated, its agriculture in a state of lamentable depression, and notwithstanding the continued bounty of Providence, a rapid and alarming increase of pauperism in every quarter. And to what causes are these calamities attributable? In vain shall we attempt to disguise the truth. They are the consequences of a system of misrule which the Minis- ters of the Crown have, unhappily for the country, been suffered too long to persevere in, instead of lessening the load of taxation with which the nation has been oppressed, to defray the ex pence of a war almost without a precedent; in place of remedying those errors which had crept into the general policy of the kingdom, we have witnessed, dur- ing a time of peace, a perseverance in the same ruinous system of wasteful extravagance ;' and seen with astonish- ment, the very bulwarks of our constitution broken down— the suspension of the Habeas Corpus Act during a period of profound peace— the employment of spies to goad on the unwary to acts of violence, in order to form apologies for oppressive measures— and an attempt to pot- lute the streams of justice by instituting the late anoma- lous proceedings against her illustrious Majesty the Queen. These are evidences of their incapacity to con- duct the affairs of this nation on constitutional principles. These are some of the reasons which not only justify, but imperiously call upon the nation to urge on your Honour- able House the necessity of a change of measures. Convinced in the strongest possible manner, that the restoration of her Majesty's name to the Liturgy, and to the full possession of all her lightful dignities and privi- leges, as Queen Consort of the Realm, would, in so far at least, speedily produce unanimity throughout the na- tion; and equal iy convinced, that the prolongation of the ill advised and unjust measures against her Majesty will continue to be, ( as your Honourable House pronounced them in the very outset) " derogatory to the dignity of the Crown, and injurious to the best interes s of the nation," we humbly pray, that the attention of your Honourable Houve will be ime& iatcly directed towards the accomplish- ment of this desirable object ; and that having performed this first act of national duty, you will then occupy your time, with minds undistracted, in devising the means of alleviating the burdensand of restoring rhe commerce of this industrious nation to its former glory, which will diffuse new vigour throughout every department of its in- ternalp oliCy. And we will ever pray, & c. FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. " fhe Emperor Alexander ornv'ed at Vienna on the 30tl » ot December, iin< 3 proposed to set out for the Congress df Laybach on the Sd instant. His Imperial brother of Austria wag to precede him in tile journey by a dav. The poor old King of Na- ples was expected to reach Laybach on the 8th ins- tant The Duke de Guild, the Neapolitan Minis- ter for Foreign Affairs, left Naples on the ' 20th of December, with a numerous suite, far the purpose of joining the King at Florence, and accompanying his Majesty to Laybaeh. Doubts, however, were entertained whether the Allied Sovereigns would per- mit so energetic an advocate for the late Revolution t'o appear in their presence. A letter from Vienna somewhat suspiciously observes, that the deliverance ofthe King was considered as a decisive stroke, and that his Majesty is so entirely beloved bv the soldi- ers and every class of subjects, that a simple sum- mons from him would be sufficient to induce them to lav down their arms. We have always suspected that the object ofthe Allied Sovereigns in requiring so particularly the presence ofthe old King himself at Laybach, was for the purpose of pr ictising upon the fears or the credulity that belong to advanced age, and inducing him to suffer a proclamation to be issued in his venerable name, calling on the Neapolitans to restore. the ancient system of government, antl in the event of their refusal authorising the Allies to devastate his realm with fire and sword. That hopes of this nature are entertained in Vienna may be col- lected from this letter. The Allied Sovereigns have, it is said, expressed their resolution that the Spanish Constitution shall not be adopted by any State with- in the Italian Peninsula. The Cortes of Portugal were installed in Lisbon 011 the 19th of December. Madrid Papers to the 3lst ult. state, that con- siderable disturbances took place in that capital on the 28th and 29th, though without any actual riot or outrage, in consequence of the determination of the Patriotic Societies to meet, in defiance of the orders of the Government. On the 30th, however, they were prevented from again assembling by a mi- litary force, and the Municipality published the fol- lowing notice:— " Citizens of Madrid— Our eternal enemies, knowing the impoteney of all their efforts, avail themselves of all imaginable means to excite discord ; well assured of their triumph If they should unhap- pily succred in this. It is, therefore, indispensible that there should lie an intimate union of all friends of order, which cannot subsist without due submis- sion and respect to the Constituted Authorities.— lie who deviates from this path is a declared enemy ofthe Constitution, a secret friend to despotism, and unworthy ofthe name of Spaniard. The Govern- ment has given the necessary orders for the execu- tion of the law respecting Patriotic Societies, and the urgent reasons are notorious which have rendered this measure necessary. It does riot fetter the just liberty which the citizens ought to enjoy, it only prevents the fatal abuses, which, if not checked in time, would lead us to anarchy, and from anarchy to slavery, which is its inseparable attendant. " Citizens, avoid these dangers, observe that the enemies of our system delight in every event which is calculated to obscure its lustre. The order for tiie suspension of political meetings existing without the forms required by law, has been published, and it is necessary to execute it. The authorities sup- ported by all good citizens have more than sufficient strength and energy to make themselves obeyed, and they would be wanting in their most sacred obliga- tions, if thev remained indifferent on an occasion so interesting to the public tranquillity. Tiie nation then signified, that only a fear of confounding the innocent with the guilty prevented the adoption of rigorous measures, but that from this davj whoever shall oppose the execution of the orders issued for the suspension of Patriotic Meetings without the knowledge of the Local Authorities, shall he con- sidered as a disturber of the public peace, and pu- nished by ail the rigour of the laws ; but the Mu- nicipality hopes no means will be necessary but those of persuasion and an appeal to the general utility." missr. ry- denerai of our army in Italy, with vtrv considerable emoluments. Great influence is at- tached to this offiee, and from its authority ema- nate all the measures of administration lelative to the supply of the army, especially with provisions. ' 1 lie Allied Sovereigns have given a fresh poof of their determination not to recognise hny of the acts extorted from the King of Naples by the revolution-, arv faction. Prince Uiilf'o, who was deprived of llis embassy at Vienna, and recalled by a decree ofthe Parliament, converted into a Royal decree, has been united to repair to the Congress at Lav- bneh, with the title of Ambassador from hit Majesty the King ofthe two Sicilies. A letter from Corfu States, that the famous Ex- Pacha of Jan in a has obtained his pardon, having; succeeded in gaining the party ofthe Haicm by the sacrifice of two millions of sequins ( 1,000,0001. English sterling), and jewels to the Value of half as much. BARCELONA, Dec. 22.— If our adherence to the Constitution has been notorious and sincere, if our love to our King has been pure and cordial, it respect to the legal authorities lias always been the rule of our conduct, we now think it more than ever necessary to declale, that Catalonia considers the Spanish Constitution as its property, which it uifl defend against all the enemies of the public felicity, whether they be secret or open. The accounts we rcccive from NapEs induce us to hold this language, since we unhappily know, that the affairs of Europe are taking a turn, which we did not expect. It was thought that the Great Powers, as they are called, attacked only the prin- ciple of the Revolution of Naples, that is, what they called a Military Insurrection ; but the mask is thrown off; it is not the military'insurrection, it is the Spanish Constitution which is to be attack- ed at Naples. It cannot be any longer dissembled, it is Spain which is attacked indirectly in Italy, till an opportunity should offer of attacking it directly. ' I he injustice of the inteutions of those who op- pose the Spanish Constitution of Naples is self- evident, as well as the manifest contradiction into which they fall, alleging that this Constitution gives too much power to the people and too little to tha Monarclu The Sovereigns who now think thus, arc the same w ho, a few years ago, solemnly recog- nized this Constitution ; which then roused them from the lethargy— from the humiliation in which they were plunged ; which was the basis to preserve their thrones, to support their vaeillatory sceptrcs, to recover their dignity, their honour, their strength, and their rank, & c. We are far from comparing Laybach with Bayonne, Ferdinand IV. with Ferdinand VII. or the Emperor Francis with Bonaparte. If any act of injustice like those committed by the usurper of the throne of the Bourbons should be seen in our days, we shall not impute it to the Sovereigns, but to their evil councillors. Meantime Ferdinand is gone to Laybach, but for what ? It can only l> e to repeat by word of month what he has frequently declared to the whole world. And what may be the results of this new Congress? The Neapoli- tan nation will not yield ; the Monarch will main- tain Ins oath; the Cabinets, meantime, will intro- duce delusion, inflame people's minds, excite parties, outrage the law of nations, trample upon justice ; but at the same time they will animate in the people their love of liberty: thev will cause men to reflect on their rights, and oil the means of recovering them, and of establishing them on more solid foun- dations than they have hitherto had. Naples will be invaded, and tlie Spaniards cannot look at its situa- tion with indifference. FROM FRENCH PAPERS. PA IUS, Jan. ] 4'.— The domestic intelligence these Papers contain may be dispatched in a few words. The Chamber of Deputies in the sitting of Tuesday adopted tlie project of law for collecting, provisionally, the first six- twelfths of the taxes lor the current year upon the estimates ofthe last year, and presented it by deputation to the King, who immediately transmitted it to the Chamber of Peers. The foreign intelligence brought by these Papers is . interesting. JAN 16.— Letters from Madrid, of the 6th instant, confirm the intelligence of the invitation from the Allied Sovereigns to King Ferdinand to proceed to Laybach. The Permanent Deputa- tion of the Cortes assembled specially very late in the evening of the 4th. The general opinion was, that this body would not consent to the Monarch quitting the Kingdom. The Courts of Turin, Rome, Florence, Modena, and Lucca, have been invited by the Allied Sove- reigns to send Plenipotentiaries to the Congress of Laybach. It is said, that the Sovereigns themselves will march at the head of their troops, should there be a neces- sity for employing fotce to ^- establish the Legiti- mate Authority at Naples.—( Gazette de France.) From Naples the 29th ult. it is said, that the Prince Regent had declared lie would bring troops from Sicily, should the combined squadrons, who anchored in the port of Naples, oppose any obstacle to the present order of tilings. His Royal High- ness had also declared, that on the first shot being fired, he would be at the head of the army. The Ex- Ministers, Count Zurlo, and the Duke de Campochiaro, appeared before the Parliament, in the Sitting of the 26th, and gave explanations of their conduct. The discussion was postponed till the next day, when, after a debate, the Charges against these Ministers were got rid of by an indefi- nite Adjournment, which was carried 65to 17. It is said that the Spanish Government has trans- mitted to the French Government and to others, a Diplomatic Note of the highest importance.— ( Const itutionnel.) MADRID, Jan. a.— I hasten to write to vou that the Cortes are convoked for Tuesday, the 9th of this month, for the purpose of taking, into conside- ration the invitation made in the name, ofthe Allied Sovereigns to his Majesty Ferdinand VII. to repair in person to the Congress at Laybach. This news has produced the greatest sensation.— If his Majesty is authorised by the Cortes to leave the kingdom, it is probable that he will embark at Barcelona. According to the most recent letters from Spain, the conclusion of a treaty of triple alliance between Portugal, Spain, and Naples may be- regarded as certain.. FROM GERMAN PAPERS. STOCKHOLM, D C. 22.— The Emperor of Mo- rocco has written to Mr. Craherg, Secretary to the Swedish Consulate, at Tangier, the following let- ter :— " Write immediately to our mighty and much beloved friend the King, and request him to send us, as soon as possible, 20 small cast cannon, five palms long, . and only so heavy that one with its carriage may be transported on the back of a mule ; or like those which Mnleiel Jarid lias received from Fmg- land. What they cost we will pay, and if thy King should want any thing for his army, or any thing else, be it what it ir. av, and we possess it, let us know, and we will not refuse to give what you desire." In consequence ofthe above, and after the Board of Convoys had received from the Consul at Tan- gier more particular information and drawings of the cannon required, his Majesty the King has given orders to cast them in the cannon foundry at Marleberg. BERNE, Jan. 3.— Several Germans, whom po- litical opinions had obliged to leave their country, have lately been arrested in Switzerland, in conse- quence of an application from the Courts of Vienna and Berlin. It is even said, that pressing applica- tions have been made by these Courts for the adop- tion of the system ofthe Holy Alliance, by refusing an asylum to any individual who has incurred their anger, and rendering our press entirely subservient to the despotical purposes of this sacred body. There is an aristocratic faction among us, willing to act as constables of the Holy Alliance, and to join in,- or if possible, even to outrun their detestable designs. The seat of this faction is at Berne. There the infamous falsehoods which appeared a short time ago in German newspapers of Carbonari in different towns of Switzerland, Germanic Unions, and Se- cret Correspondence, with I know not whom, & c. were manufactured. The Holy Alliance cannot have better friends, if oppression and general sla- very are their detestable designs, or more implacable enemies, if'any country should be allowed to rule it- self in- a free and constitutional manner ; audi dare say, that in no monarchical country are the people more the objects of contempt and oppression, than in the Canton of Berne, although the republican name is kept up by these haughty patricians. There- fore the protection of the Holy Alliance must be purchased by base crawling and absurd calumnies. VIENNA, Jan. 5.— The military armaments are still continuing with the greatest activity. The corps called Staabs dragoons, for the internal ser- vice of the head- quarters, has just been formed.- This is always considered as the last of the measures necessary to the organisation of an army on the war establishment, and on the point of advan cing. General Baron Von Koiler is appointed Com- AMERICA, ,( f. New York papers to the 8th ult. h » ve arrived. The important Treasury Report, containing the estimates of the expenditure and receipts for the years 1820 and 1321, has been published, and the American papers state, it will carry dismay into every jiart of the Union. The revenues have fallen off in such an alarming manner, that the de- ficiency, December 1821, is estimated at seven millions four hundred thousand dollars. The question of the Missouri territory being ad- mitted into the American Union has given rise to much discussion. It is expected the measure will > e warmly opposed in both Houses, oil account of the Constitution of that State with regard to the Slave Trade ; the importation and traffic in slaves being still allowed in the Missouri. The Committee appointed to report respecting the Petitions, presented to Congress on the subject of the tariff, have reported unfavourably for the pe- titioners, who wished a higher rate of duty on Bri- tish manufactures. No change in the import duties is now expected. THEATRE, NEW YORK Mr. Kean's second and best performance of Richard attracted again au overflowing audience. Public opinion, which was somewhat unsettled as to Ills merits in consequence of the new style introduced, is perfectly reconciled: to the simple, natural, unostentatious display of liis genius. Ilis strong points, the second night, were given with a greater force, and the applause was more general ar. d merited. The following information relative to the state of affairs in the north ofthe Great Peninsula of South America, brings down events to a more recent date than any account yet received by way of the United States. " It will be recollected that a negotiation between Morillo and Bolivar, was commenced by the for- mer early last summer. The following were the proposals submitted to tlie Commissioners on the part of the Patriots :— " 1. That the political Constitution of the Spa- nish Monarchy shall be adopted and sworn to in those provinces ; and that Deputies shall lie forth- with nominated and sent to the Cortes in conformity with the provisions thereof. " 2. That if the Constitution is thus adopted and sworn to by the disaffected provinces, his Majesty will confirm to the present Chiefs the command of the provinces, which they now hold ; subject, how- ever, to the General- in Chief of the Army of Paci- fication, or to the direct orders of the Government of the mother country." " These propositions were indignantly rejected, and the Commissioners on the part of Bolivar gave what tliev termed an irrevocable assurance, that thev would answer no farther proposition, not hav- ing for its object the recognition and complete estab- lishment of their independence." Private letters have been obtained from Buenos Avres to the commencement of November. They speak of the late revolution in that capital as having been short but bloody. All was then tranquil, and Rodriguez was still at the head of the Govt « tneut. It is supposed,, however, that he would not lonfr continue in that situation, a. s the parties who were inimical to him were preparing their forces for a I fresh attack. i y n T A. The tranquillity of India, which, at the last peace, was settled on'a new, and apparently more solid, ba- sis, by the humiliation of every rival power, is now seriously threatened by new enemies, who have ari- sen without the pale of the British influence and authority. The Sindians, a nation beyond the Indus, had sent an ambassador to our Government, escorted bv a body of armed men. Thev were mistaken at first for marauders, so common in that part of the country, and a scuffle ensued, in which the ambas- sador was unfortunately killed. An explanation of this mistake was immediately given by the Hon. Mr. Elphinstone, with which the Sindians in appear- ance were satisfied ; but it was in appearance only, as thev shortly after invaded Kntch, and plundered a village. They have sent a dispatch to the Government of Bombay, expressing the highest indignation. They have since refused all amicable intercourse— have called in the aid of the neighbour- ing powers, and have already mustered a force of between 30,000 and 1- 0,000 troops, chiefly cavalry. The Governor- General is extremely anxious for peace, which is highly necessary to secure the con- quests made bv the Company's arms in the last war, and to consolidate the different members of their vast empire, bv the ties of policy, superadded to those of conquest, into one great whole. But however desi- rable peace may be, the aggression of the Indians on the Company's territories render it impossible, and a brce of 14,000 men is accordingly to lie assembled, md is expectcd at Kutch by the end of October.— ^ ir Charles C'olvillc is to have the command and lin- ger him Major- General Lionel Smith. CAMBRIDGESHIRE MEETING, Taesdi v. puisuant to public requisition, presented to the High Sheriff, T. Burgess, Esq., a meeting of the freeholders and inhabitants of this county was held in the 7: Iarket- place, to consider the propriety of addressing his Majesty to dismiss his present Ministers from his presence r » d Councils for ever. The Shire Hall was the place ori- ginally fixed for the meeting, and long before 12 o'clock it was crowded in every part. As it was not found suffi- ciently large to contain even the one-* fourth of those who wished to be present, an adjournment to the Market- place ( where a temporary platform had been erected in front of one of the houses, for tiie convenience of the speakers) was proposed, and immediately agreed to. The Mayor had previously refused the requisitionists the use of the Town 3Iall. Mr. Wells, the Under Sheriff", presided over the meeting in the absence of the High Sheriff. The address was moved liy Lord Dacre, and seconded by Karl Fitz- willum. ( the Earl of Hardwieke and Lord I*. G. Osborne were absent, from indisposition). A ] Ur. Fordham moved a resolution, pointing out the necessity of obtaining a re- form in Parliament; but the Under Sheiiffsaid the meet- ing was convened under a particular act of Parliament, and he could not put a resolution, the subject of which was not mentioned in tile requisition. The Reverend Mr. MABE.' IT. Y said, he admired the purity of the female character, and lie loved his Sovereign, and would sacrifice bis life and property in his defence, and he prized liberty as highly as he did bis life. 13ut though he loved bis Sovereign, he could not at present express affection and attachment to him, when be knew that he had degraded the female character. After expatia- ting on his Majesty's treatment of the Queen, and on several other topics, the Reverend Gentleman proceeded to read an amended address, the first line of which stated that the parties addressing " view with the greatest regret and abhorrence the conduct of your Majesty."—( Here a violent storm of disapprobation prevented the Reverend Gentleman from proceeding.) The UNDER SHERIFF.— There never was a man more favourable to free diseussion than the High Sheriff of Cam- bridge ; but he is commissioned by the King, and be would disgrace his office and himself if be allowed any of- fensive language to be used towards his Sovereign— gene- ral cheering.) Gentlemen, you are quite conscious that the High Sheriff has an awful duty to perform towards Iris Sovereign, and I trust he will be protected in shield- ing that Sovereign from insult. Mr. LITTLE opposed the address. He defended the conduct of Ministers, who, he affirmed, had never done anv thing since they came into power prejudicial to the interests of the King or the people. They had terminated the late war most gloriously— they had raised the British name all over the world— they had given freedom to Eu- rope, and had transported to a rock in the Atlantic, the despot who would have enslaved her for ever. In conclu- sion, the worthy Gentleman said, " In holding up your bands for the address, you are literally holding them up against votlr Sovereign."—( Great disapprobation). ° The UN- DCU SHERIFF.—- The High Sheriff of this county will never hear it said in his presence that any individual is hostile to bis Sovereign. The Hon. Gentleman ought to explain words so offensive to us all. Mr. LITTLE, as we understood, said be did not mean the expression in the strict sense in which it was taken. The question was then put, and carried affirmatively by an immense majority, not more tlian a dozen hands being held up against it. MIDDLESEX MEETING. Tuesday, a meeting of the Freeholders of tlic county of Middlesex was held at the Mermaid, at Hackney, for the purpose of considering the propriety of petitioning for a leforin in the representation of the people iir Parlia- ment. At one o'clock, Mr. P. Moore, Sir G. Noel, Mr. Jjyng, Mr. S. C. Whitbread. Major Cartwright, Wooler, Mills of Bristol, & c. entered the room amidst much ap- plause. On the motion of Major Cartwright, Mr. P. Moore was called to the chair. Major CARTWRTOHT moved three resolutions, and a tn tition to the House of Commons, in favour of reform. Dr. DtiAPF. lt seconded the resolutions, and made some observations on the necessity of reform. Mr. FiTzr. F. n. u. 1) next came forward, but disdaining to inarch slowly into the fields of oratory, he mounted his - Hibernian Pegasus at once, and gallopped into the pure empyrean, beyond the reach of mortal eye. Soon after we bad thus lost sight of him, we found him gasping on the ground, bis faithless steed had kicked him off', aud he tinnk away in shame. The resolutions were of course carried unanimously. Tb « petition, which occupied £ 5 minutes in the reading, was received with great approbation ; it was seconded by Mr. Mills. The CHAIRMAN having put the question, " that the pe- tition now read be adopted," Mr. Brxc came forward amid loud cheers, and said, that before the question put from the chair was decided 011, Ire thought it his duty to state, that he agreed most cordi- ally in the purpose for which the present meeting had been convened. At the same time, however, he felt it right to state to the meeting, that towards tho end of the petition words were introduced which, if he was not deceived, it • was not safe or proper for them to adopt. They bad un- doubtedly a right to say that such and such things were not constitutional; but while the House of Commons con- tinued as it was at present constituted, he apprehended that its Members must be acknowledged as the legal Re- presentatives of the people. ( Disapprobation, and cries of •• No, no.") Every gentleman present had a right to judge for himself on this subject ; but as the petition had been read rather rapidly, he thought it isduty, as their Repre- sentative, to apprise them that such words were intro- duced ; ( applause) for if it were presented in that form, be apprehended it was doubtful whether the House of Commons would receive it. Before the business of the Meeting drew to a conclusion, it was his intention to state more fully his opinions on the subject of Parliamentary reform ; but, at present, he did think that these words would only weaken the effect of the truths stated in the petition, aud give a handle to the enemies of reform— The friends of freedom ought not, for their own sakes, to be too tenacious of their opinions, but should at times make some little abatement, even contrary to their own convictions in order to be as united as the friends of power and corruption were. At the request of Mr. Byng, the Chairman read the objectionable part of the petition. It prayed the House of Commons not to agree to any future taxes imposed by the votes of persons who were " not legal and constitu- tional Members" of the House. Major CAUIWJUCU'I explained the distinction between I tie facto and dejtire, and contended that the House of Commons de facto was not the I louse of Commons dejure. Mr. WMTBRKAIJ said, it was not worth disputing about the word " legal" being retained in the petition, but the retaining of it might have the effect of occasioning the rejection of the petition,—( Applause.) The very act of petitioning the House of Commons implied that the peti- tioners considered it a legal House of Commons, for . why ask. as a favour, what the House of Commons, if not legal, could not grant ? Major Cartwright conceded the term, and the petition so amended was unanimously agreed to. Mr. Wooler next addressed the meeting, and moved three resolutions, which were carried unanimously. Mr. Clarke moved the next resolution, which was agreed to unanimously. Mr. Mills moved that the petition be presented by the county Members, and animadverted on the conduct of Mr. Sheriff' Waithman, in refusing 10 call this meeting. Mr. Mallet seconded the motion, and defended Mr. Waithman. Mr. BYNG said he would present it with the greatest possible pleasure—( applause)— having been uniformly* through life a friend to Parliamentary reform. But he had always expressed, in the most decided manner, how far he would support Parliamentary reform. He had aaretd with Mr. Grey ineary life, and with Mr. Lanibton. He had wished then, and he wished now, to see ihe rot- ten boroughs cut off, and the most populous places repre- sented in their stead, and to see all inhabitant household- ers, paying direct taxes, admitted to vote. The right of representation had originally been given to all consider- able towns, at least to all those who were able to pay a representative. This principle of representation, long lost sight of, ought to be restored—( applause.) A great many mercantile and manufacturing interests had since arisen ; it was therefore preposterous, from fear of innovation, to refuse to destroy the rotten boroughs, and to give to the j people what they were clearly entitled to. Bravo, ( that's J'air. J If the people came forward, he was confident re- form would be granted—( applause.) The Crown had not sufficient power to carry any measure without the decisive voice of the people. Mr. WHITBBFAIJ was always happy to meet the free- holders of Middlesex 011 any occasion, but at present he felt a greater pleasure than he had ever dune since he had the honour of being connected with them. He could as- sure them that he was more strenuous in the cause of re- form than ever ; for the more he reflected 011 the subject, the more firmly was he convinced of the necessity of re- form. He was at present loo young a man to give any decisive plan of reform that should bind hiln ever after ; but this he would say, that he should never be pleased till he saw the House of Commons so constituted that its Members should not be ashamed of the manner in which they were elected ; till he saw that House different from what it was at present, when it was a breach of privilege to say to any of its Members, " You came in by bribery or improper means." Although he wasunwilling to propose any specific p'an of general reform, yet there was one species that he would suggest, and that was, to make the House of Lords independent of the Crown, in which case the Peers could have no interest or object but the good of the country. He knew that some persons w^ rre exulting in the belief that the failure of the bill of pains and penalties had given a death blow to reform, by showing that it was not necessary in the House of Commons. He thought, however, that the failure of that measure had rather opened the eyes of the country to the necessity of a reform in Par- liament. If the people persevered in the cause of reform as stedfastly as they had done in the cause of ( lie Queen, they would be as successful in the one as in the other, un- less indeed. Ministers thought they could govern the country without the assistance of the people. If, even with the assistance of their five bills, they could not govern the country on the present system, let thein dare to deny reform. Thanks having been voted to the Chairman for his able and impartial conduct, the meeting dispersed at five o'clock. NORTHUMBERLAND MEETING. On Wednesday last, a meeting of the Freehold- ers and Inhabitants of Northumberland was held in the Town Hall, at Morpeth, to take into consider- ation the measures lately pursued for the degradation » of the Queen, & c. ; when an address to his Majesty j and petitions to both Houses of Parliament, were ) agreed to, praying that her Majesty might be rein- J stated in all the distinctions belonging to her high station ; - that her name might be restored to the li- turgy, and that an establishment suited to her rank might be provided for her.— The meeting was at- tended by most of the leading Whigs of Northum- berland, and the hall was excessively crowded. The following is the substance of Earl GREY'S Speech : Earl GRF. Y gave credit to the gentleman in coming for- ward manfully and stating his sentiments. It was better than to skulk into corners to manufacture addresses.— With respect to the conduct of the High Sheriff, he read a letter from Lord Ossulton, in which he gave it as his opinion, that in calling a meeting a Sheriff had only two things to attend to : if the requisition was respectable enough, and if there would beany danger in calling such a meeting. As nothing was stated on the score of respect- ability, or of any danger likely to arise from the intended meeting, he thought the Sheriff had been guilty of a great and violent breach of his duty, and should be severely censured. Mr. Orde seemed to think the right of petition and the liberty of the press should undergo farther restric- tions ; but if the public discontent was not allowed to evaporate in this way, it would break into commotion, and be productive of open violence and bloodshed ; or the country be attempted to be kept in a state of fictitious tran- quillity, by the strong arm of power, and the establishment of a system of terror. With respect to the guilt of the Queen, so different was his opinion from that of Mr. Orde, that he would declare, that if the proceeding had been altogether judicial, if it had been a simple question of in- nocent or guilty, both conscience and honour would have impelled him to say— Not guilty—( loud applause.) As to what Mr. Orde says about the reports circulated against the Queen, he thought they were propagated by the very men who pretended so much care for the honour of the King arid country, by those who complained of the re- ports— ( Applause). Ilis Lordship then alluded to the manner of getting up loyal addresses. If they were not intended to support Ministers, what was the use of them at this time? Are the institutions of the country threatened with destruction ? Are there now nightly meetings on the Tyne and Wear, secret drillings, with all the catalogue of horrors which frightened our old women and magistrates almost out of their senses ?—( Laughter and applause.) j One of these addresses he had lately seen, which emanated J from a solemn conclave of piiests " assembled at my house in the college at Durham." in the requisition calling that county together, in order to endeavour to pleasethem, the word " clergy" was omitted ; but it appeared this would not do, for they issued a paper disclaiming all participa- tion in the measures adopted by the county meeting, and requesting the Archdeacon to call a meeting in order to rescue the Clergy from the disgrace such proceedings might, bring upon them. They said no meeting liad a right to express the sentiments of those who did not at- tend it ; but if they were not convinced that the universal feeling of the county was against tfcem, would they have kept away ? But what occasion was there for this decla- ration of the Reverend Conclave ? Did any one ever sus- pect them of joining in the sentiments of that meeting ?— ( Cries of *' No, no, and laughing.)— Did any one ever suspect them of an inclination to differ in opinion from ! the Minister of the day ?—( Renewed cries of no, no.") No such imputation could ever fall from any quarter. So ! little indeed can I suspect them of any such disposition, | that should I by any accident be called to power, a cir- i cumstar. ee by no means likely to happen, even I. repro- j bate Whig as I am, would not despair of receiving the support of these men—( Loud applause and laughing.)— They t > ok a different view, they said, of the real dangers of the times. What the county meeting complained of ! was the distress in all branches of trade, commercial and | agricultural. And vill the Clergy deny that great and j universal distress prevails throughout the country ? that 1 great discontent has been excited by the harsh and severe ! rebukes given to the people on the expression of their grievances : They cannot deny it. Passing over this, they come to general charges of sedition and disaffection, and the licentiousness of the press. If it were true that the country, after a series of most glorious victories, were so disaffected as they describe, what does it say Tor the conduct of the Government under which such a state of things has been produced. ? All history proves that the surest signs of misgovernment were complaints, discontent and disaffection, on the part of the people.—( l oud ap- plause.), I reject, therefore, with indignation, such ca- lumnies from such persons, and I will resist to the ut- most of my power every attempt to impose fresh restraints 011 the liberties of the country.—( Applause). They next say that they have seen, with feelings which they cannot express, men of exalted rank and distinguished talents, fostering the discontents of the multitude, to forward the miserable purposes of party ambition. Stand forth, ye Reverend Slanderers ; and tell us who he is that thus per- verts his rank and talents, that if guilty, the odium may justly fall Upon his head, or, if the accusation be false, may revert upon the heads of those who made the Charge. Who gave them the power to dive into the hearts of other men, and luiowthe motives of their actions? It was evi- dent that the allusion wasdirecMed to him, as he was the only person above the rank of Commoner who attended the Durham meeting ; and he would say a few words in reply. " If power were my object, how happens it that I have been all my life, with the exception of one year, excluded from the possession of it ? I have not the vanity to think very highly of my own abilities ; but on a compari- son with those who hold office, emoluments, and honours, I think I might have possessed power myself, had I cho- sen to profess principles similar to those of the persons who enjoy it. Do these loyal addressers think I am so foolish as not to know that the principles I have advocated through life were not the principles that led to power ? I can truly say, it has happened to me more than once, twice, or thrice, to refuse the highest stations, when 1 could not accept them without compromising my honour and my principles ; and if such lias been my conduct, I may be permitted to ask whether these Reverend Calumniators can alledge that they have ever made such sacrifices ? A firm adherence to my principles has hitherto excluded me from power ; and I will put these divines at ease on that subject ; following the courses I have hitherto pursued, as I shall, I must still be excluded ; I shalt remain true to the principles with which I set out in life—( applause)— and were the government offered me to- morrow — and it would be a task to which, in the present circumstances of the country, and the present state of my health, I am by no means equal— I would not accept it, but upon terms satisfactory to my conscience and honour ; and these terms should be nothing short of a complete and total change in the system of government.—( Loud and continued cheers.) Tliis declaration I make without fear. There is one sub- | ject of great public importance, a Reform in Parliament, J as connected with that change, upon whichT fear I have \ been much misunderstood— perhaps misrepresented. I f will not deny that my opinions as to the mode in which j Reform should be effected have undergone some modifica- > tioti since my outset in life, when hope was more fervent, and the fears of consequences less strong ; but to the principle of Reform I am as strongly attached as ever. To those who may think it worth while to inquire respect- ing my opinions on this subject, I would observe that they maybe found in my speech in 1810, on the state of the nation ; to those opinions I still adhere. I conceive a change of system in the Government absolutely necessary, and reform should be a principal feature in that change ; but whether it should be pressed as an indispensihle object in the first place, when other most important questions connected with the general state of the country demand attention, is a question which, like every other question of a public nature, mtfst be determined by considerations of expendency at the time. More than this I do not feel it incumbent to say. If I have animadverted severely on part of the clergy, conceiving I have been attacked by them, I do not wish my observations to extend beyond those who excited them. Born of parents belonging to the Established Church, educated in its tenets, and at- tached to its interests, I feel anxious to see the ministers of our holy religion enveloped in that respect w hich must ever be entertained for the clergyman, the parish priest, who performs the duties of his office according to the pre- j cepts and in the spirit of Christianity— a friend of his pa- f risliioners— their consoler in affliction— their guir'e inJ error— their comforer in sickness and in trouble — their admonisher in life— and their supporter amidst ti tor )> •-; \ of approaching death mild meek ~ benevoio nr— a charitable— such a character is entitled to respcei. esteem and honour, and if such characters were more common, there would be more peace and harmony among mankind. But if we look at the reverse of this character— at the busy middling- ambitious priest— scarcely ku-. Avn to his parishioners, but as the collector of tithes.-— seldom heard in his pulpit— a virulent writer of party pamphle — never allowing thost? who differ from him to be severe or conscientious in their judgments— but fulmina. Jng politi- cal anathemas against all who dissent from him and his party— denouncing them as traitors to their King and apostates to their God— setting one part of the com- munity against the other, for the furtherance of his own views of worldly ambition— 1 will tell vOu that one such priest, but. much more a conclave of them, do more injury to the character of the Church, than twenty libellers of cur holy religion ; for, if there were no such priests, there would be no such libellers. In conclusion, I shall only add, that I shall ever be happy to meet my former constituents, to whom I feel bound by every tie of grati- tude for the many obligations they have conferred upon me, and I beg to assure them that my best endeavours and assistance shall always be devoted to the maintenance of that liberty, which, when it falls to decay, must involve the country in ruin."-—( Loud and long continued cheer- ins.) LONDON, Jan. 20. A paper of Thursday states, that after a lone discussion ill the Cabinet Council, the Earl of Liverpool arid Lord Castlereagh set oil'together to Brighton, to lav the results before his Majesty.— The matter probably alludes to the course which they desire to pursue on the meeting of the two Iloutes, and upon which they are to take the King's pleasure. The rumour in the political circles is, that the Speech is to be extremely mo- derate ; that a proposition is to be submitted to the Commons to fix the Queen's establishment at 50,0001. a year, the sum offered her at St. Outer's, ( and which, wc trust, is to, » be paid from the Civil List, not fixed on the Consolidated Fund,) and that Ministers are to stand or fall on the question of the restoration of her Majesty's name to the Liturgy. Upon this point they calculate ( but with the hope of gaining the Saints), on a majority of seventy, which, in the House of Commons, is less than a majority of nine in the House of Lords. It is whispered, that Ministers are anxious that his Majesty should open the Session of Parliament with a speech from the Throne ; to this the King is extremely indisposed ; and it is said that the main object of the journey of the Earl of Liverpool and Lord Castlereagh to Brighton, was to beseech his o o t ' t Majestv to comply with fWir wishes in this respect. What effect their application produced, we know not ; but their solicitude seems to arise from the consciousness of the insult they pas- e l on the two Houses by the abrupt and unceremonious way in which they dismissed them at the close of the last Session, . md the degree of amende which they think his Majesty's presence 011 Tuesday would take for the indecorum. Wednesday a meeting was hold at the Mansion- hnuso, at which many of the most considerable merchants, bankers, traders, and members of great public bodies ( including 23 Members of Parliament) were present, for the purpose of considering the propriety of call. ng a pub- lic meeting of merchants, & c. upon the subject of the late declaration, professing loyalty to the King, and pur- porting to be the declaration of the mercantile body. The gentlemen present determined to request the Lord Mayor to preside at the intended meeting; and it ia the design of those who are to take a principal part in the discussion to propose a resolution with reference to the late nveting, to which they received no invitation, and which, in fact, was got up without the knowledge of the great mass of the citizens of London. The proposition being submitted to the I. ord Mayor, his Lvrdship immediately ivn^ entcU to take the chair, and offered the Egyptian- hall for the accommodation of the meeting, which will be held 011 Wednesday next. " The Weak and wicked advisers of the Holy Al- hauce- men at length speak out. . They use terms which cannot, be misunderstood— they fearlessly throw aside all regard for justice, and promulgate the most base and infamous principles as. sacred truths— they cover tyranny with the cloak of legiti- ' gitimacy, laugh at popular rights, call patriotism rebellion, and brand with the foul name of anarchy the truly holy alliance of People and King! Speak- ing of the Deliberations at Troppau, the Austrian Observer savs—' that the result was an unanimous conviction, that the Neapolitan Revolution was planned by fanatic sects, and carried into effect bv soldiers ' neglectful of their duties' The fanaticism of which these advisers speak, is the fanaticism of' wisdom which has unmasked folly : the fanaticism that discloses the wickedness of royal usurpations, and overthrows the violation of the just rights of mankind. This is a fanaticism inconsistent with the inclinations of these debauched and unprincipled di- rectors of the affairs of nations. This is a fanaticism that will burn the cords of powerful conspiracies which bind tyrant to tyrant to wrong the world.— The other complaint displays the wince of the galled jade. " Carried into effect by soldiers forgetful < rf their duties," says the Austrian Observer. The first duty that a soldier owes is to his country : a soldier that acts contrary to this duty is a traitor. But these wiseacres would induce the soldier to believe that he is the slave of the King, whether the Kino be a Nero or an Antonine, good or bad, just or unjust; that it is his duty to support the royal mea- sures though they bring the country to ruin. It is politic tor these fanatics to preach such vile nonsense to the banditti assembled to enforce tyranny 011 Naples. What if these banditti should begin to rea- son ? " This same Austrian Observer draws the cur- tain, and explains the intentions of the conspirators —' Penetrated with these truths, the Sovereigns have, by common accord, adopted the firm resolu- tion of directing their united forccsi for the purpose of destroying the present state of affairs in the king- dom of Naples, as being destitute of all legitimate basis, and brought about solely by rebellion and vio- lence.' A nation cannot rebel. The whole nation has adopted the new Constitution ; and this adop- tion is the only legitimate basis of Government.— Never was such a just and necessary revolution brought about with less violence; but it is laughable that these men talk of violence who are violently to effect the overthrow, if they can, of all that is good in the Government, and substitute the old mum- mery, tyranny and, superstition. May the Sove- reigns of Europe detect the incapacity and wicked- ness of their advisers before it is too late. May they dismiss the Hardonbnrghs, the Metterniches, and the Nesselrodes, who would rather see thrones prosterate in the dust than witness the triumph of LIBEKAL OPINION! It is unwise to oppose the spirit of the age; it is dangerous to play with its power. To be secure, Kings must be just!"— Alfred, Sir Francis Burdett's solicitor has received no- tice, that the sentence ofthe Court of King's Bench upon the Hon. Baronet will be moved for on Mon- day tiie 29th inst. " or as soon in the next Term as Counsel can be heard," and requiring Sir Francis personally to appear and receive such sentence.— " It is understood," savs a Morning Paper, " that as soon as the defendant is brought up, a motion will be made in arrest of judgment; and if that should be over- ruled, that there will be an appeal to the House of Lords."

MONTROSE, Jan. 12— About seven o'clock in the evening, the Sisters, W itt, of Kincardine, a brig of 124 tons burthen, fourteen days from Riga for Hull, with flax, flax- seed, & c. went on shore on the rocks near the fish- town of Usan, about two miles from this place, at a pi ice called Si Hey Craigs. The vessel was, providentially for the safety of the crew, carried up between two jutting rocks close to the land, the tide having receded only about half an hour. Mr Guthrie, a farmer in the immediate neighbourhood, in returning home from a visit, perceived the masts of the vessel between him and the sky, and with the most praiseworthy alacrity, dispatched men on horseback to Usan, Ferryden, and this place, for assist- ance. Immediately 011 the arrival ofthe lirst ofthe fisher- men, Mr. Guthrie and his people proceeded to the ship with lights, made known to the crew their situation, and offered their assistance.

PLOUGHING MATCHES. npiIE STEWARDS of the ABERDEEN JL DISTRICT are requested to meet in the Office of Charles Chalmers. Advocate, Adelphi Court, upon Fri- day the 2d day of February next, at 2 o'clock afternoon, V fix uuon the day and pla. ee for holding the PLOUG II- ING MATCH for that District. The sums after- mentioned, given by the Agricultural Association, for the encouragement of Ploughing, from vvfiicfi Ministry ( tad laid so much stress, 13 given in our preceding columns, as far as oitr limits Will ad- mit, and will he read with particular interest. They afford noble specimens of the character and genius of the English, always awake to the call of indepen- dence, and animated by a spirit of patriotism and of zeal for the British Constitution. It is one of the most striking features of the addressing svstem, the cordial union and sympathy among all ranks and de- grees of society, in the decided disapprobation all, from the class of Nobility to that of the humble Labourer, have strongly expressed, regarding the conduct of the present Ministers. Such unison in sentiment, such correspondence in opinion, among the independent part of society throughout the kingdom, approaching to the unanimity of one con- gregated meeting of the nation at large, is truly as- tonishing, and speaks more than language can ex- press, of the unexampled abuses and misrule, with their concomitant evils, which could have produced such extraordinary and wonderful effects. There is here 110 party work, no factious combination ; all men, high and low, ofevery rank and in every si- I tuation of life, who stand clear of the influence of i those circumstances, which always operate in favour I of present power, are - loud in the expression of in- j dignation at the ruinous policy of Ministers, to ; whose rn al- ad mi nist rati on the present and suffering ot the country are to be There is an united, strong, and nearly universal i feeling throughout the kingdom, that the present | administration, and the safety or happiness of the | country, a'' e incompatible with each other. That i a long established Administration, basking in the sun- shine of power, hitherto nearly uncontrolled, with the disposal of the immense resources of this once great nation, and consequent extensive in- fluence, should have a number of dependents ready to support it on all occasions wits to be expected— Parasitesandsveophants will always be found, readily to lend their aid in maintaining that corrupt system, from which they derive pecuniary emolument or for themselves or their friends, have either en- joyed places or patronage, or have such advantages iu expectance. But when we find that, with all this overweening influence, strengthened by every art or auxiliary which such a powerful engine could equally to protect and maintain the just rights of the Prince and the People. Such an unprincipled ag- gression against an unoffending nation, at peace with its neighbours, without the violation of any treaty, and only desirous of having, by unanimous consent, a representative constitution for their ge- neral advantage, is without excuse. Such a dis- graceful interference, in the affairs of a free country, is an abuse of power of the mftst atrocious nature, and nearly without parallel. With any other Mi- nistry than those who have already violated solemn treaties, such an act of cruelty and injustice would have appeared incredible. But all ranks, it is to he hoped, w ill press forward, and declare their abhor- rence of such an outrage on the law of nations, urge the dismissal of those Ministers, capable of enter- ing into a combination for exterminating by force j those very principles, which has raised Great Bri- tain to such a boasted proud distinction among na- tions, and from which we have derived so many lasting and solid advantages, and thus save our na- tional character from reproach, bv upholding the principles of rational liberty, it has always been out- great aim to foster mid maintain tlie Funds « f last and former year, are still to be compel- j ^ one- tenth part of the population can ed for 111 the following Districts :— AJord, Xtucartune j , , , r - 1 - .

THE CHRONICLE. he brought to approve their conduct, the conclusion is obvious, that the country is beyond measure dis- gusted with the mismanagement of public affairs, and i withthe menbvwhom thev have beenso administered. With regard to the addresses in general, it has been observed, tl^ it a small proportion of them, supported bv the friends of Ministers, have been voted at open meetings; while those of the inde- pendent description have been publicly carried, in the most open and avowed manner. Such were those we have lately had to boast of in this part of the country. The Magistrates, Town Council, and Citizens of Montrese, in Head Court assem- bled, have unanimously voted a loval Address to his Majesty, expressive of their inviolable regard and adherence to the Constitution, deeply lament- ing the encroachments on the principles of the lie- volution of 1688, which established Triennial Par- liaments, and earnestly imploring his Majesty to take to his councils men of approved talents, inte- grity, and patriotism, from whose wisdom, a re- dress of grievances aud reduction of expenditure and taxation may be expected. A very numerous and respectable Meeting of the Citizens'and Inhabitants of Dundee voted a similar address, couched in the like manly and patriotic language, as have also the Incorporated Trades of Banff; ( which will be found in page 2d of this paper) gratifying proofs of the growing spirit of independence and liberal sentiments. Could we know that the loud and universal expression of discontent and disapproba- tion of public measures, the voice of complaint and suffering, could reach the Royal ear, we could not hesitate to conclude, that the authors of our mis fortunes would speedily be dismissed from his Ma- jesty's councils, which they have proved so unfit and unworthy to direct, and from sharing his con- fidence which thev have so grossly abused. But we must have our doubts as to the management in this respect, when we see that all the exclusively loyal addresses are inserted in the Gazette, while all those more justly entitled to that character, but disapprov- ing of the conduct of Ministers', are omitted. The clamour about infidelity and irrehgion seems of late to have been abandoned ; and if the report of what took place at the late Pitt dinner in Edinburgh is correct, the adherents of- that Ministry, who profess themselves the guardians of our morals, and under whose auspices this great Meeting was held, appear to think that no very exemplar}' strictness was ne- cessary on their part ; or, that the danger from that blasphemy and irreligion, which so lately threatened the land, iio longer exists. The licentiousness of the press is, the loyal addressers tell 11s, the danger now to be apprehended. But they had better leave this topic untouched and preserve silence ; the mi- nisterial writers have in that respect far exceeded in rancour ami degree their opponents. The object, therefore, herein view, is not improbably, a farther restriction on the Liberty of the Press, so that our Rulers may be left free from those restraints which, however salutary for the country, or necessary for the preservation of our rights and privileges, must clog their measures and check the heedless career 011 which they seem bent. Parliament, however, to which our longing eves have been directed is now assembled, and we shall soon see whether the House of Commons is actuated by the same feelings and sentiments, and may therefore be considered in this case actually or virtually our true Representatives, or whether we shall have an additional and painful ground for complaining of our inadequate Repre- sentation. What Ministry may have in contempla- tion, or have prepared for us, cannot exactly be known ; but we can sec nothing of a consolatory nature from what presently appears, should their administration, unfortunately for the country, be continued. It is not at home alone that we must view the danger to which we are exposed from their measures ; we are, there is too much reason to be- lieve, about to embark in continental politics, and thus lava foundation for farther distress, by the im- position of increased burdens, already intolerable. ression of in- The flame of war is, in the mean time, likely to ; Ministers, to j break out in India, and the tranquillity of that conn- j i degradation ) try to be unexpectedly interrupted, which, at the : attributed.— j last peace, was believed to have been settled 011 a solid basis, by the humiliation of every rival power. An ambassador from the Sindians, a nation beyond the Indus, escorted. by a body of armed men, having with ( lis party beet) mistaken tor marauders, so com- mon in that part of the country, was attacked, and in the rencontre was unfortunately killed. An im- mediate jsxplanation was given by the Hon. Mr. EtniixsTONE, which at first appeared to have been gatissf. ietory, but in appearance enlv, for thev soon after invaded K utc! » and plundered a village, sending, a dispatch to the Government of Bombay, expressed in terms of the highest indignation. They have since refused all amicable intercourse, calling in the aid of the neighbouring powers, and have already mustered a force of between SO, 000 and 40.000 troops, chieflv cavalry. With cverv de- sire on the part of the Governor- General for pre- serving peace, so necessary for securing our con- quests in the last war, the aggression of the Indians 011 the Company's territories render it impossible, and a force of 14,000 men, commanded bv Sir CHARLES COLVILI. E, and under him Major- General LIONEL SMITH, was to be assembled, and expected to b. c at Ktttch by the end of October. The Constitution accepted by FERDINAND VII. in old Spain, has, by ths latest accounts fi- onn Lima, been promulgated in that city and its depen- dencies, with all the formalities due to so important a change in the government. The several public authorities, with the Viceroy at their head, had begun to act upon it, to the great satisfaction, not only of the { loyalists, but a large proportion of the inhabitants, who, although reluctant to join in a complete revolution, were anxious for a change of system. The Revolutionists, harassed and worn out with the fatigues of distressing warfare, gladly embraced this opportunity, it is said, of putting an end to their haidihips by accepting the Constitution. Bv advices from the same quarter, we learn, that Lord COCHRANE had detained the American brig Warrior, for what reason, is not mentioned; but probably, from having been engaged in conveving ammunition and stores to the lloyalists. A letter from Liverpool states, that the ship William, Glas ham, from Kingston, had just arrived, bringing accounts of the fall of Lima to tlvs arms of the Chilian Government, under the command of Lord COCHRANE arid General SAN MARTIN. Capt. Glasham says, that when he was on the point of sailing, this news was officially stuck tip in the Cotlee- room at Kingston. QUESTION EKXVV2KH ' rill: MAGISTRATES or INVEBCRY ANB CKRTAIN OF THE BUIIGESSFS. In a Report of this case, it has been, in a former Paper, correctly stated, that the second division of the Court of Session had decided that the Itargesses had no such direct patrimonial interest in the Funds of the Burgh, as entitled them to resist in this action ; and that their Lordships acquiesced iu the previous judgment of the Lord Ordinary, Pitmillv. to the above efleet, 011 the ground also of the Court of Session's having no jurisdiction in questions of this nature ; but we only do an act of commoti justice to the Magistrates of that Burgh, in thus publicly mention- ing, to their credit, that they felt 110 desire to shelter themselves from the strictest Count and Reckoning, upon any legal plea whatever ; having previous to the com- mencement of their suit, made a voluntary proposition to submit all objections to their Accounts to the first Counsel at the Bar, to be mutually named by thein and the Bur- gesses, hut which wasdeciined on their part.

THE proceedings of some of the leading . coun- t'es in England, in the great business wherein the country has for some time been occupied, and 011 In our last, we gave a copy of the Declaration of the Members of the Holy Alliance assembled at Troppau, relative to the affairs of Naples ; and we have the authority of these Potentates for con- cluding, that Britain takes part against the emanci- pation of that kingdom. These worthies affirm, that they have concerted together the measures re- quisite to put down the spirit of revolution and re- bellion, and that " they have no doubt of the assent of the Courts of Paris and London." This appears an authority not to be questioned, as to the certainty . of Great Britain joining a confederacy of despots to crush a rising country, the only crime of which is establishing a free Constitution, which promises BIRTHS.— At Cannanore, Madras, on the 25th Aug. the Lady of Lieutenant- Colonel ROBERT M'DOWALL, of a son.

At Inverness, on the 12th curt. Miss MARGARET WAR- RAND, daughter of the late Robert Warrand Esq. She was greatly esteemed by her friends, and is sincerely re- gretted. We are happy to hear, that a new Congre- gation, in connection with the United Secession Church, has been formed in this city, aud that they meet for SERMON 011 Sabbath first, in that large Hall, Milne's Close, Gallowgate, when tiie Rev. Mr. BALLAMINE, of Stonehaven, will officiate ; arid at 6 o'clock evening, in the Rev.

The Treasurer of the Lunatic Asyl uin ha- j received from the Executors of Mrs. Cbesser, late of Queen Street, for hebouf of the Hospital, a legacy of Twenty Pounds. Alexander Crombie, E^ q. of Phe. sdo. has very gener- ously sent to the Kirk- session of Fordoun a donation of Five Pounds, for the poor of that parish. / It is with the Kincerest regret we mention the loss of a fishing boat off Helmsdale, on Tuesday se'enmght, with a crew of seven men, who we lament to say all perished. The boat belonged to Brora, and had gone out in the morning in company with another boat : on their return in the evening they were overtaken by a squall— the one got into the harbour of Helmsdale, the other was seen no more. The seven men have all left wives and families to bewail their untimely fate.— Inverness Courier. We have particular pleasure in learning, that Sir JAMKS M'GRIGCR, Director- General of the Army Medi- cal Department, solicitous for the improvement of the Profession in his native country, has transmitted to the Secretary of the Medical Society of the North here, a handsome donation of modern Medical Publications for the Society's Library.— Ibid. The following Address from the Magistrates and Yesterday, the Sprightly, Johnston, and Margaret, Aiken, arrived in this Bay from America, with timber. The Sprightly sailed from Truro, far up the Bay of Fundy, on the 3d December, and experienced several violent gales, so that be lost part of his bulwarks and sprung his bow sprit ; and to replacothe latter, the vessel, although bound to tbe southward, was obliged to come into this hiutbour.

The sloop Venilia of Anstruther, James Brace, master, from Belfast, with a cargo of provisions for London, was, in a heavy jrale of wind on the night o( tbe I8th curt, driven ashore on the Sands of Dunnet, about eight miles from this place. The crew were providentially saved. The cargo is landed, partly damaged. If the weather prove favourable it is expected the vessel will IK- gat oft'. The attention paid by the inhabitants in the neighbour- hood to the crew on landing, is very praiseworthy ; and it is highly deserving of public notice, that although apart of the cargo consisted of about a thousand small casks of butter, containing from 30 to ( 50 lbs. eaeh, and the greater part thereof was lauded in tbe night time, and carried to a considerable distauce, there was not one -> acka /. LONDON, Jan. 23. We understand, in consequence of the recommen- dation respecting the Queen in the King's Speech, it was settled at a meeting of'the Opptwi- tkm last night at Burlington House, that there is to be tio amendment moyed to the Address this evening in either House. Among the morions in contemplation in tlio House of Commons, is one for the insertion of the Queen's rain; in the Liturgy by Lord A. Hamil- ton, and another by Mr. Western for a censure i a Ministers.

The Gazette notifies that his Majesty will hold a Lever, at Carlton House, on Friday next. An attempt was lately made 3t Milan to assassinate Colonel Brown, so well- known in the proceedings against • the Queen. He was just ready to set out for London, t<> vindicate his character from the heavy charges which have been brought against it. He was alone, returning from the opera, when the attempt was made by two men, who cut him on the head, and stabbed him under the seventh rib. Fortunately !, he thickness of his great- coat preserved him from receiving any mortal wound. Piinee Cimitell', Ambassador from the Constitution.'!
