' . , T presume, Sir, that you • will hsye the . goodness to publish inyour Chronicle, the following, word of informa- tion to those of our countrymen , w ho may be meditating emigration to America, from one whohas trode the putl>, and kuows. by certain experience . the sost of such an en- terprise. I chuse this way of communicating - informa- tion to » J1 whom it may, concern,, in general, and tu those of my friends and acquaintances: i, n jxmicular, who, on my departure froifr Scotland, earnestly entreated me to* '' write them particularly what views my experience should form of the measure 1 had just taken. You will at once perceive, theu, Sir, the great quantity of labour you will save in?, by giving this a place iii your public spirited Paper. It is very common foi writers cm such a subject as the present, to write according to their feelings, or their in- terest, and to give such a colouring to facts, as to render them nothing short of downright falsehoods; to avoid this error, 1 shall endeavour to state things as they are,, and only such things as I do know leaving those I am uncertain about until my own information respecting them shall be more perfect, * . • I sailed from Dundee, for New York, in the month of February this year, ( 1819) wh? re I was landed after ja passage of nearly 100 days. My intentions were to have gone to Illinois, allured to that quarter by the specious colouring of Mr. MORICE 13 ERE BECK. At New York, however, I had from some disinterested and intelligent persons such an account of that Western Country, that, all things considered, 1 judged Upper Canada far more eligible for farming, and as holding out greater advan- tages, with fewer difficulties, and where climate, inha- bitants, and manners, are more agreeable to British con- stitutions and habits. Here tho land, is given, not sold ; and here I am now located upon 200' acres of^ jood land, granted me by ( Government, with the privilege of ch us- ing in some measure my own neighbourhood. So much for myself. . To quali fya per on for emigration as a farmer, two things are necessary, namely, Resolution and Capital.—• The first of these is indi pensible. as he must expect to meet appalling difficulties— difficulties, however, which those who have the fortitude to struggle through, soon find themselves in comparative independence. This is. true uniformly. But many tfho. come here ( aud not a few that I know) get dispirited at the aspect of things and linger about. the toWns longer than is good for them, or return disgusted to their native country. Capital i. 4 necessary, though not indispensible; were I to assert the, contfary, thousands here would witness against me, who went upon land without a single cent m the Wor? d_ • and I know many who, even . thus situated about four years since, who could now sell their, property at double the sum they could possibly have earned in the time, at the highest wages paid in this county, for labour of any kind, Their pro- pect is now cheering ; but their outset was sUrely not enviable: people iit fVese circumstances aio obliged to work for those who can employ them, aboiit one half of their time, arid take farm produce at the rate of 12 dollars per month, besides being found for the time. They are, moreover, obliged to surfer privations which the people of Scotland know little about ; but they are encouraged by being able to see before thepi an aimqst certain prospect of better days. With regard to the ex- tent of capital necessary, one pound sterling per acre, in industrious hands, will do well, although between three and four pounds are necessary to clear an acre pro • perly. . When a person then has resolved to emigrate, suppose for Upper Canada, he should land at Quebec or Mont- real ; from the former to York is 585 miles, and fr< uii the latter 405 miles, water* conveyance all the way, which will cost from Quebec to Montreal 3 dollars, and from thence to York about 8 dollars.' But whatever port he chuses to land at, let him be sure to provide his own victuals during the passage. Thousands by trusting to ship stores, have ( to say the least) completely marred their comfort, besides paying more money to the ship for food which lie cannot cat, than would have laid in com- fortable dretfor him. It is surely enough' for a person to he exposed to the incessant noise and motion of the sMp, the consequent want of rest, as well as of exercise, vvjtji- out, at the same time, exposing himself likewise to a total change of food. Many, many have experienced the evil Of this, f did so myself, and that too under the best of Captains. 1 hope any f iends of mTiie, who may* take it into their heads fo make a voyage, will be careful to avoid this situation of which I am now speaking. When the emigrant arrives in Yoik, the seat of Go vernment for Upper Canada, he hvts to" repair to the Go- vernor's office, and he will there be furnished with a cer- tificate, authorising him to take the oath of allegiance to Government, and he will be directed to a proper office where the oath will be administered to him, for half a dollar ' y and the same person will write his- petition to. the Council',- for the other half of the dollar,. JJ" acres— but in few instances i-; more given. He will then have his land of his own chusiftop. or the Stu- • veyW General may locate him where'it pleases him when he lias by some of these means ascertained his lot. the Sur- veyor General will gnnt him a Location Ticket, authocis - ? ng him i'o possess afd improve such a h t, officii a,' co. n • cession, of such a township, fortius he pays half a d* ilyr^ From the date of location he iii allowed 18 months to do the settlement duties ; this is, to clear 5 acres out . o? evei* y hundred, besides © he half the roact adjacent to his lot.

The process Consists in. Chap- ping, Logirig, a'od Burnipg Chopping isfVllitig the trce. « r cutting the in in proper lengths for oxen to diaw m ae. ips, anil piling the brandies anil lintlfcr liritsb. Tills dime, fire is set lo it, anil if a dry time is ehBsen, it will burn iver the surface to the great benefit 6f the land.— After this commences the Logirig : and at till* the neigh- bours generally assist eacii other, in having the logs piled in Inaips, with the pint ( if there Is any) in the middle, because it is difficult totonStime • fire is then put to these piles, and persons Willi handspikes are employed in keep- ing them Mgelher— this they call Chunking. I should have told ycni that, before the trees are fallen, the under- brush, that is ail under 5 or 6 inches thick, are grubbed, or cut close to the earth, in order to let the harrows pass orer therti, and then they are piled. I may mention also, that, in mdst cases, the treesabove a certain thickness are lulled and left standing ; this way saves much labour at die outset, and does not hurt the crop. The acre can he diopped for .5 or 6 dollars, aud ii can he completely clear- ed, with the foregoing exception, for 12 or 15 dollars— so that the first crop, which requires only to be harrow ed iu, genera lly pays the expence of clearing, so that the farmer very soon finds himself proprietor of cleared land, for which he pays, in the name of tax, about one penny per acre, without any otfier burden, excepting a few days work annually to the improvement of his own roads. Should the emigrant from Britain intend settling in the Western territory of the United States, he should land at Baltimore ; and if he proposes to go down the Ohio, from Pittsburg, or from Wheeling, which is still nearer, he imist be there before the summer heat sets in, or he may be detained for months, owing to the shallowness of the fiver; lie has then a long troublesome journey, before be arrives at any of these notable prairies, so much extolled ; and w hen he has done so, and wants only a half section, Or a quarter om.-, he may in all probability lie miles from water, or from wood. This is an evil that will attend small lots on these beautiful, but dry priaries. This, with ( he jrreat distance and expellee of travelling, the difference in the price of land, and the known disposition of the Americans to the IJiidsh nation, and besides, on the part of Canada, a climate more suitable to English constitu- tions, and better markets, are considerations which will weigh with every considering man. Here also, from the Way in which the surveys are now laid out, with the lots lying parallel to the Lakes, which occasion the water from the higher ground on its way to Ontario and Erie on the south, and to Lakes Simcoe and others on the north, to pass along the roncessions, crossing in rivulets almost every lot. The Government here is good and well ad- ministered. Families coming here shouM bring out dishes and small household articles, at least they should not put to roup what they may have got. but bring them along ; and when they do arrive, they should be attentive to the state of their bowels, especially if tliey come in the hot season. Dysentry or the prickly heat, or perhaps fever and ague, will seise them. Ill tile case of the two former, cooling purga- tives. as cream of tartar, castor oil, & c- will be useful and for the latter, after the stomach and bowels have been cleaned by an emetic and salts, Peruvian bark is an excellent restorative ; but at any rate, the strangers must be careful not to overheat themselves. It is very common for old country people to hurt themselves by too much exertion in the outset of their labour ; they want skill, and that they attempt to supply by their strength, and by this means weaken their frames to that degree, that it will require many months of ease, good living, and medicine, to recruit them. The currency here is called Halifax, or is 5s. to the dollar ; but common business is done in New York currency, or 8s. to the dollar. Any sortVif specie will pass here, gold is the best— a Guinea, full weight, is worth 4 dollars and J do. Spanish Doubloons, which are sometimes sold in Scotland at 1( 5 dollars, are not in America, owing to their lightness, worth more than 15} dollars. English shillings lose in value one copper each, and paper money from Europe will not do. Servants are here hired by the month ; a female has at least 7 dollars, and found : a male servant, 10 or 12 dollars : and by the day, labourers who eat their own bread have 1 dollar. The place is overstocked with mechanics. The hospitality of the people, as far as I have seen or heard of in this country, notwithstanding all that has been said about it by some, is not greater than might be expected. They arc inclined to sell every thing, and the Irishman's remark holds good— that nut/ ling is lo be got here for nothing. With regard to religious society, it is not to be expected that it can much abound in newly Settled townships ; but in tin's respect the Government is very indulgent ; whether the tie be social or religious that unite a body of people together, they have hitherto been assigned a block of land, aud thus allowed to locate toge- ther. Here, in York, is an Episcopalian Church ; Presbyterians, but no meeting suitable to the number ; Methodists who have a meeting, and also a Meeting of Baptists : but I must stop, lest I encroach too much on jour room. The facts I have stated are true, and in as far as I have spoken from opinion, let it pass as such. I have no interest in writing, but feel sorry that so much has been published on this subject, and yet so little known. I think it a pity likewise, that so many of our country- tnen should be deluded to the States, under so many dis- advantages, merely for want of knowing it, and should seem fo think nothing at all of Upper Canada* I believe that the public mind has been so filled with an idea of the cold lengthened winter of Lower Canada, that, for want of distinguishing between the Provinces, suppose that what has Canada for any part of its name must be all equally cold : ti. is is a mistake, for here the summer is not so hot as in Low er Canada, nor is the winter either so long or so cold, and yet the summer is warm enough to bring to ma- turity almost every sort of fruit peculiar to the States.— And here, I find some fruits and flowers growing in the open fields, which in Scotland required the aid of frames find hot beds. Adieu then, Sir, at this time ; when I shall have been longer resident in this country, 1 shall perhaps know more ; and trust, I shall ever be ready to communicate in the cheapest and most public manner for tile information of my countrymen. Your humble servant, THOMAS FYFE, A SCOTSMAN. faofiireS some little unptrnfement ha « becri experienced ; but as far as his powers of observation extended, he could see no sign, he coufd discover no synrtptom of that iitterfial improvement on which the Noble Lords opposite Seemed inclined to dwell with such extreme satisfaction. He could not see any sign of the smallest improvement in the agriculture of the country. Perhaps the part of the coun- try to which he belonged might be different in that respect from others ; but it was a most unprecedented, and ano- » malous condition* where an improvement in commerce and manufactures was accompanied with a state of agri- culture so depressed and ruinous as that which now existed in this country, with whose most vital interests its pro- sperity was so intimately connected—( Hear.) In so expressing himself, he wished to guard against being misunderstood as advocating any of those restrictive mea- sures, such as the corn laws, which had been from time to time proposed, hut which were, in his judgment, ill conceived, badly framed, and worse understood.—( Hear, hear.)— It gave him great satisfaction to hear that his Ma- jesty continued to receive assurances of the pacific disposi- tions of foreign powers. But it was not with equal satis- faction that he heard the allusion to the occurrences on the Continent, with respect to which the public mind had been intensely excited.— Nothing had been said of those affairs which became the policy of a liberal and high spirited na- tion.—( Hear, hear.) He had seen nothing which indica- ted either the desire or the intention to adopt the line of conduct which such a nation ought to pursue in respect of those occurrences.—( Hear.)— He regretted to learn that no step, such as might have become this country in the lofty situation which she was said to occupy, had been taken towards preventing any foreign hostile interference in the affairs of Naples.—( Hear, hear.) He regretted all this, although he could not feel any surprise on the oc- casion for the answer which was given by the Noble Earl opposite to a question on this subject, which had been put to him by a Noble Friend of his on a former occasion, : had been far from satisfactory to him, particularly when he remarked that we had no accredited Minister at the I Court of Naples. From the statement in the speeeh, lie should have been led to suppose that we had observed a strict neutrality on the occasion ; but he could not think that a strict neutrality was the proper course for this coun- try to pursue—( Hear.) When it was considered that we had no accredited Minister remaining at the Court of Naples, and that an unusually strong squadron was col- lected there under tbe orders of a British Admiral, would that be construed as the conduct which ought to have been adopted by this country, and not rather as a recognition of the principles of the interference of foreign powers for the prevention of the internal improvement of an independent nation ? But, perhaps, it was to be held as a subject of congratulation— perhaps it was to be viewed as a matter of exultation, that the King of this country had not received a compulsory summons to abide the beck and nod of this kingly league.— ( hear.)— He thought we had but little reason to boast of the preponderance we were supposed to have gained in European affairs, if Monarchs were not now to be withheld from pursuing their dishonest inten- tions by the remonstrances of this country, provided the administration of its Councils were characterised by vigour, firmness, and good faith.—( hear) — He could not with- hold the expression of his satisfaction at the prospect of any reduction of the military establishment ; but he hop- ed that the amount of the reduction would only be regu- lated by the necessary attention to the safety and defence of the country and its foreign possessions. lie thought lity; but his doctrine would lead fo any ttnrig else than neutrality J for it must go the length of taking a decided part with one power or the other* His ( Lord Liver- pool's) principle was, that a total abstinence from any interference was the present tineof policy whicliour duty pointed out to us as the only one that ought to be adopt- ed; and he could assure the Mouse, that no measures would be taken by this Government that were tfot in the true spirit of neutrality ; and that there sholild be no at- tempt at interference in the concerns of other countries. With regard to that part of the speech which said that there should be a reduction in the military force of the country, he had to say, that last year there were circum- stances which rendered an increase of the military neces- sary. But noW he thought that such reductions might be made as could produce a considerable saving ; and, indeed, he thought that, altogether, the expellees of the country might be so reduced, that they could - be all pro- vided for without creating any new loans—( hear, hear.) With regard to other points, it would not !> e necessary for him to say any thing at this time. As to what the Noble Lord had said, that there was no precedent of Par- liament being prorogued without a speech from the Throne, he pointed out the prorogation which took place in 1785, when some very important propositions, relative to the trade with Ireland, were under discussion; and if Parliament continued to discuss anv measure at the time of the late prorogation, the business of Parliament could not have been entered upon without the greatest per- sonal inconvenience to individuals. At present, he should forbear making remarks on many other topics al- luded to by the Noble Lord, until the proper time came for discussing them.. Lord HOLLAND said, it was not his intention to enter on a wide field of discussion on the topics of the speech, whether foreign or domestic. It did not appear to him ( Lord Holland) extraordinary that the Noble Earl opposite should not understand what his Noble Friend ( Lord Grey) meant by a system of Government. It was not for those who adopted a measure one day and aban- doned k the next— who acted on no fixed principle— and who relied for their success on shifts and expedients— to understand what was meant by a system of Government. It was easy, however, for others to comprehend what was. designed by the change in the system of Government alluded to by his Noble Friend. It meant, an abandon- ment of the harsh measures pursued, and of the harsh language used towards the people— the adoption of a con- ciliatory spirit towards them— a return to that good hu- moured Government which they had formerly enjoyed— the restoiation of that happy old system under which they tasted contentment, and revered the powers which promoted their prosperity—( hear.) He then took a re- view of our foreign policy, and insisted, that before the Austrian Government began 1o expend such large sums as must be wasted in a war with Naples, it should pay us part of her large debt — a debt which, he apprehended, was at this moment not less than from L. 16 000,000 to L. l 7.000.000. This, he maintained, was in the power of Ministers, according to existing treaties* which it was their duty to enforce. His belief was, that Ministers did not wish for a war on the part of Austria against Naples. But it was not enough that they should confine themselves to the mere circumstance of not wishing it. They should remonstrate, and say to Austria, on the part of their Sove- reign, " I disapprove of this war, as I disapprove of any war with any na ion founded on the principles of such interference in its internal concerns. I disapprove of a war House of f ommAns to hhite the res£ riratjo? i ofhef "!\ fa- jesty's name to the Liturgy, in opposition to the general sense of the1 people. Let them not attempt to do so ; for they would then drive the people to reform that House from without. This petitiori Wife signed by mariy vino had hitherto supported the present Administration. The Duke of WELLINGTON supposed that the Noble Earl had alluded to him as one of diotfc whof signed the counter- requisit. ido.—( No, ntr.)— He did not sign tlnit counter- requisition* and the reason of his refusal to nit was that being Lord- Lieutenant of the county, and, besides, a member of the Government, be thought his signature under these circumstances, wodld have been mproper. Dut he entirely concurred with those who signed the Counter- requisition, as to the impropriety of j assembling the county. As an Address had already been presented to his Majesty, signed by 9000 names, he con- sidered the opinion of the County already expressed, and IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT HOUSE OF LORDS. Tuesday, Jan. 23. After thd delivery of his Majesty's Speech, as stated in our last, the House adjourned until five o'clock. At that hour, Earl B ELMO RE rose to move the Address, and said, that it required neither argument nor persuasion to induce their Lordships to concur in the motion he was about to submit. He alluded to the pacific expressions in his Ma- jesty's Speech, and hoped that this country would be l> lessed by a lasting peace. He adverted to an improve- ment in the revenue, and the commerce and state of the country, and touched upon the various points noticed in the Speech. He concluded with moving an Address, * vhich was an echo of the Speech. Lord PUtfmiOE seconded the Address. Earl GltEY then rose and said, the Noble Earl who opened the discussion expressed his confident hope that ifa difference of opinion would be felt among their Lord- ships as to the address now proposed, and he ( Earl Grey) had no doubt that the hopes of the Noble Earl would be gratified. For although he was fully convinced that there • were spirits abroad who were ready to take advantage of every opportunity to inflame and mislead the public mind, ' and to seize every occasion for diverting the feelings of the people from their proper channel*- yet he was sure that no person could be found who" had taken any pro- minent par ® in public affairs in either House of Parlia- ment, who was not penetrated with sentiments of the firm- est and warmest loyalty and attachment to Iris Majesty's person and Government.- A strong and unprecedcntedly unanimous expression of public opinion had lately been made in all parts of the kingdom. It was true that it had keen accompanied with expressions- universal and decided, pf attachment to the person and Government of his Ma- jesty ; yet it was not less true that it had- also been ac- companied with equally general and decided disapproba- tion of the conduct of Ministers. If, therefore, on the present occasion, it was meant to draw from expressions pf loyalty and attachment to his Majesty, any inference pf an approval of the measuresof Administration, He must lift up. his * oice and protest against any such attempt to deceive and mislead his Majesty or his people.- He la- men ted that he could not perceive in the speeeh from the Throne any disposition to relinquish that pernicious system pf Government which had brought the country into the trying difficulties that now surrounded it on every side, and which, if persevered'in, must lead1 it to inevitable r, V » iflu He believed that in, some branches of ounnaiiu- that gooil policy would lead to an attention and compliance with the wishes of the people, by departing from tire mi- litary system into which we had been dragged, and ceasing to present the appearance of keeping up a large force lor the purpose of intimidation, which only tended to exaspe- rate. He was sure such policy would lead to considerable reductions, without the smallest apprehension of danger. There were several other points on which much might Ire said, but which he would not now go into. . Tie could not, however, refrain from taking notice of the extraordinary prorogation of Parliament about two months ago, afier session,, in which that House in particular had been most laboriously engaged in the performance of a most serious duty, without any speech or statement of the view taken by Government of the state of public affairs wlrch a due regard to the feelings of the people, if not to the dignity of Parliament, might have been supposed to re- quire.—( Hear, hear.)— There Mas one more topic men- tioned in the speech, to which he would shortly allude : he meant the provision to be made for the Queen.— ( hear, hear.)— He hoped that the arrangement proposed would be such as might set those unhappy differences, which had unfortunately so long existed, to rest for ever. He sincere- ly hoped this would be the spirit of the measure about to be proposed; and most sincerely should he rejoice If he saw his Majesty's Ministers resort at last to measures of a soothing and conciliatory nature, and directly contrary to those which they had so long and so unpropitiously pursu- ed. The Earl of LIVERPOOL said, he should not trouble their Lordships long in replying to what had fallen from the Noble Lord opposite ; because his objec- tions to the address were rather of a negative, than a positive kind. But he could not allow the Noble Lord's speech to pass without some comment, lest it should be supposed that he acquiesced in the sentiments which it contained. As to what had been said about the senti- ments of loyalty which bad been expressed by people in dilferent parts of the country, he knew that a distinction was made between loyaty to the Throne, and an appro- val of the conduct of Ministers; but he wished to know what was meant by the declaration, that there ought to be a change in the system by which the Government had hitlrerto been carried on. If the Noble Lord expected that Ministers should propose such a change, he must tell the Noble Lord that no such proposal should be made, for it was to such a system as that which now existed that the country was indebted for all the greatness and the blessings it now had to boast of; and tin's was the opinion of all the respectable and thinking part of the community. The measuresof Ministers might sometimes be erroneous; but it did not follow that, in order to correct them, there should be a change in the system of the Government, which would be tantamount to a revolution. With re- spect to the improvements which were stated in his Ma- jesty's speech to have taken place in certain branches of our commerce, the Noble Lord seemed to be under some mistake. All the speech said was, that in certain parts of our commerce and manufactures great improvement had taken place. Agriculture was not by name directly adverted to; but an allusion was made to if in the pas- sage which spoke of the distresses under which a large part of the community was suffering. Whenever the Noble Lord had any proposition of that kind to make, ho ( Lord Liverpool) would be ready to give him his assist- ance. A twelvemonth ago, the great weight of distress fell upon the manufacturing districts; but there certainly was a great pressure on the agricultural interest, and he wished to caution the people against giving way to any rash expectation of a remedy on that subject, which, with- out producing any benefit, might cause a great deal of mischief. Some years ago, just at the conclusion of a long war, a remedy was tried, and it was since found, that prices had fallen down to the former amount at which they were when that remedy was adopted ; and to what was this fall of prices to be ascribed but to an in- crease of produce? During the last two years there was no increase of importation, and yet prices had fallen.— It was therefore his opinion that no Legislative regula- tion whatever ought to take place on this subject; for of one law of this kind which had done any good, nine out of ten had done mischief. Let not the idea then go forth, that, because an evil existed, there ought to be a Legis- lative remedy. He should now proceed to notice the most important topic connected with his Majesty'* speech, and the observations of the Noble Lord, in order to ex- plain the policy and the views of the Government.—. Nothing could be more explicit on this subject than his Majesty's speech, in which the King said, he should re- gret if the occurrences in Italy should lead to an inter- ruption of tranquillity in that quarter, and that his ob- ject should be to secure the continuance of peace. Indeed, the system and the policy of this country leaned to peace, with a view to our own condition. But he would now say, that there was no war which we, should be more backward to engage in, than one that had for its object an interference in the concerns of other countries. ( Hear.) He had often before stated, , tbat cases might occur in which such interference would be necessary, on the ground of our security. But he would say, that the ge- neral doctrine ought to be, that of the standing policy of this country being to avoid wars of this kind. The pre- sent was not the time to enter into such questions as these; but opportunities would hereafter arise, in which it might be necessary to speak out on this subject. The Noble Lord allowed. that this couutry had maintained a strict neutra- nlafe than two ccntcrks, ( hear.) Bid tl » c " Noble Lor3 dare or presume to state that the Privy Council had acted vt'ithout due inquiry ? ( cheers.) Mr. BATJiURST rose, but was Interrupted by Mr, IltJlif E, who suggested that tlie Hon. Gentle- man had vacated His seat by accepting an office of -€ 5000 a- year, ( hear, bear.) Mr. UATHUHST said, that the statute did not In- clude his office, as lie had no salary, and diu not vacate his seat, ( hear, hear.) Mr. TIERNEY was riot satisfied. If ( he Right Ifon, Gentleman were President of the hoard of Control, lie was entitled to a salary, tliotigh perhaps lie bad not receiv- ed it. Mr. BATHURST srtid, that he l. ad accepted no sa- lary, as he was also Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, Sir J. MACKINTOSH said a few worffo. itt support of tbe motion." The documents might provfcthe illegality and impropriety of the step taken bv . minister^. against a nation with which I am connected by treaties, and in which you cannot engage without destroying th< principles on which we have acted." Such ought to be the language which the Ministers Of the Crown should hold to Austria, and he wassatisfied it would not be with- out the proper effect. He had heard it sa: d, that thou Austria could not expect any direct assistance from this country, she still would calculate upon the moral assist- ance of England. Now this he could not too strongly condemn, and it was a great reason with him for ma n- tainingthe necessity of having the most explicit avowal of the disapprobation of this Government. If it were once known that the British Government were warm y opposed to any hostile proceedings towards Naples, it wou? d soon have the effect of depriving Austria of* that moral assist- ance which she might look to from other ijuarters in tli absence of a positive disavowal. He would wish to be informed whether our Ambassador or Agent at Napl was still the accredited agent to the Neapolitan Govern mem, and if so, whether he had received instructions to assure that Government, that this country would not disturb the state of affairs there, or give any support or - sanction whatsoever to any such disturbance by any other flower, on tl> e piineiple of interfering in her internal ar- rangements. ' His next question wa ® . whether the secret article of the treaty of 1815, to which he had before al. luded, was Communicated to his Majesty's Ministers ; and if so, was it followed up by any remonstrance on our part, aud if it was not then communicated, whether Ministers, when they became acquainted with it, remonstrated fas he thought they were hound to do) against any treaty in which this country was concerned, containing principles which we disavowed ? His next question was, whether, within the last year, the Noble Lord had applied for the repayment of the Austrian loan, or any part of it, or of the interest which we ought to receive from Austria— the interest of which Mr. Pitt once talked s6 confidently. The Earl of LIVERPOOL thought it was impossible to give answers to questions of such magnitude, upon so short a notice. Indeed, he did not well know how he could answer them without going info a review of the general principles of Government. He thought lie had been explicit enough, as to the views of Government, and, considering the occasion which drew forth his remarks it occurred to him, that enough had been said for the occasion. He hail no hesitation, however, iu saying, that if at any future time the Noble Baron would make a motion on the subject, he ( Lord Liverpool) would be ready to meet and give him al! necessary information. He did not now think iie ought to be called upon to go into details. Lord IIOLT. AND was still of opniion that the ques- tions were questions of fact, and that they were capable of an easy answer. The Earl of LIVERPOOL could give no answer on so complicated a subject, without going into a review of the general policy of the Government. Lord HOLLAND congratulated the country, that so entangled were the public affairs, that a simple question could not be answered without unravelling the whole sys- em. The question was then put on the address, which was agreed to without a division.— Adjourned at a quarter to eight o'clock. Thursday, Jan. 2.5. THE QUEEN. Lord ERSKINE presented a Petition from Banff, praying that. Parliament would oppose the institution of any farther proceedings against the Queen, and en- deavour to procure the restoration of her Majesty to all her rights. The Noble and Learned Lord also presented Petitions to the same effect from the incorporated trades of Arbroath, the town of Montrose, the Burgh of Sel- kirk. the city of Aberdeen, and from some other places in Scotland : and finally, his Lordship presented the Pe- tition of the Lord Mayor and Common Council of the city of London in Common Council assembled. Read and ordered to lie on the taWe. The Earl of DA UN LEY in presenting the petition of the County- of Kent, wished to say a few words on the prayer of it, that her Majesty's name may be restored to the Liturgy. He hoped, that as this question was now before the other House of Parliament, they would agree to advise the restoration of her Majesty's undoubted rights; and that he ( Lord D.) should not haveoccasion to call their Lordships* attention particularly to it. He was still convinced, that the unwise measure of with- holding her Majesty's name from the Liturgy, was the cause of all the excitement of feeling throughout ( he country. If the House of Commons should fail in pro- em ing her Majesty's restoration tc her rights, he would bring the subject before the House in a short time. The petition was then laid on the table. Several noble Lords presented similar petitions from a great number of Counties, Cities, & c. on which interest- ing discussions took place, but our limits will not permit us to give them in detail. Earl CARNARVON presented a petition from Hampshire. In doing so he condemned the opposition given to this meeting . but notwithstanding which the petition was signed by from seven to eight thousand of the Nobility. Gentry, Clergy, and Freeholders of the County of Hants. The general prayer of tile Petition was, that their Lordships would not suffer a renewal of the proceedings against the Queen. He trusted that Ministers would Jiot try- the mad attempt of inducing the that it was not necessary to go through the farce of a County Meeting. At the meeting which took place, only one side was allowed to be heard. The Member for the County, whose view was different from the re- quisitionists, attended, and wished to state his sentiments, but could not oroenrea bwaring. Earl CARNARVON said, as bis Majesty's Minis- ters began to think all County Meetings farces, it was high time to bethink them what this system would tend to. The dearest privilege of Englishmen was to meet and petition ; and the people now expected a system of conciliation to be used towards them, instead of a system of taunt and insult. The counter declaration was ob- tained by circular and pastoral letters to tire Clergy of the County, and was signed by the Under Sheriff, as Secre- tary to the Pitt Club. If the Noble Duke and others had come forward at that County Meeting they would have been heard patiently and calmly. The Marquis of LANSDOWN was happy to find that the Noble Duke's name had not been attached to this counter Requisition ; because it was to procure signatures to a Declaration that no one bail ihe power to object to, namely, that there was 110 occasion tocall the County to- gether again. He trusted the invaluable right of assem- bling to petition ill the face of day, and of freely, openly, and publicly canvassing state affairs, would for ever re. main the constitutional right of the People of Great Bri- tain. That kind of assembly which was now called a farce, was a year ago, the only regular and constitutional mode through which the throne bad been approached with ad- dresses of congratulation. Did any of his Majesty's Mi- nisters then call these meetings a farce?—( Hear, bear!) Such meetings would never be stigmatised when their pro- ceedings accorded with their opinions and wishes. The Duke of WELLINGTON explained. I. ord HOLLAND wished to know the opinion of the Noble Duke as to County Meetings. Were they those which were held with closed doors, and where no men could deliver their opinions but those of the party assem- bled at them? Such Meetings calling themselves Repre- sentatives oftheir several Counties were only frauds 011 the Public. He ( Lord II.) had certainly at a late Meet- ing exerted himself to obtain a hearing for those who did not dwell 011 topics likely to excite the feelings of the As- embly, But both at Oxford and at Bedford the discus- sion was fair and open. He must say the Noble Duke's noli ms of Meetings were unconstitutional, or be would not have considered them as farces; if they were, they had been practised and resorted to by both parties. The Earl of LIVERPOOL said, his Noble Friend behind him ( the Duke of Wellington) had been complete- ly misunderstood ; he had said that Meetings of ibis kind were legal and constitutions! j hut he had said that if a mob were brought in by cl unour and by force, and only one party could deliver their opinions, ti » ey then became mere fan e— If they were held legally and properly in the County Ilallsas formerly, where none but Freeholders eould attend, they would be' the most valuable part of the Constitution ; but when they weri held in tire open air, there could be no certainty oftheir being Meetings of the Freeholders. .. Earl Grey, the Duke of Leinster, the Earl of Bles- sington, and Lord Ellenborough also spo* c, after which, the petitions were ordered to lie 011 the table, and to be printed. NAPLES. Earl GREY wished to put a question to the Noble Earl opposite, respecting Naples, and the allied powers. The Noble Earl must be aware that a certain Declaration had appeared in the public Journals, purporting to be a Declaration of the allied Sovereigns at Troppau, address- ed to the different Powers of Europe ; and, among oilier places to which the document had Iween sent, tbe Senate of Hamburgh was particularly mentioned. ' Hie paper stated their intentions to settle the affairs of Naples either by mediation or by force j and that they entertained 110 doubt of the concurrence of the Courts of Lon- don and Paris, by virtue of existing treaties. He wished to kr. ow if that paper had been communicated to the Noble Earl, and whether the expected concurrence of the Court of London in the measures of the allied So- vereigns was authorised by any conduct on the part of this Government. Tbe Earl of LIVERPOOL said, that the paper read by the Noble Earl, was an incorrect copy of a real paper. But there existed no treaties that entitled the Allied Powers to call for the concurrence of the Court of Lon- don ; which was 110 party in tbe proceedings against Naples. A paper had lieen sent by tbe Government of this country to the Allied Powers, explanatory of the policy which this country intended to pursue ; and he had no objection to lay the paper before tbe House on an early day, probably in the course of the ensuing week. Earl GREY expressed himself perfectly satisfied with the answer of the Noble Earl ; and it was stated by I. ord Liverpool, that it would be found to contain a most com- plete contradiction to tbe paper that had been quoted by the Noble Earl.— Adjourned to Wednesday. HOUSE OF COMMONS. Tuesday, Jan. 22. The gaallery was opened at 12 o'clock, and the Speaker arrived at a quarter before two. At two the Usher of the Rlack Rod summoned the House to the Peers, and the Speakerrepaired thither immediately, followed l-. y about 1() 0 Members. In about ten minutes he returned to the House, when' it adjourned during pleasure. Oil his return at a quarter before four, he noticed the issue of new writs for Roscommon, St. Alban's, and Yarmouth, in the Isle of Wight. Several new Members were then sworn. At this time the House was very full. OMISSION OF THE QUEEN'S NAME FROM THE LITURGY. Lord A. HAMILTON gave notice for Friday nest, of a motion relative to the insertion of the Queen's name in the Liturgy.—( Hear, hear ?) Mr. WETHER ELL wished to submit a preliminary motion for papers.— ( Hear.) Lord CASTLEIIEAGH hoped that the Hon. Gen- tleman would give notice of a motion as usual. Mr, WETHERELL thought it expedient that the papers should l> e laid upon the table before the discussion. He had no objection to give a notice of motion.—( move, move.) He would move directly, that there be laid upon the table copies of all the collects or litanie* from the reign of James I., in which the name of Queen Consort had been inserted : copies of collects or litanies annexed to the Act of Uniformity, and of the order in Council* of the 12th February 1820. The various points could not be illus- trated without these public documents. No man could come to a right judgment ofi the question without them, nor cou d justice be done to the King, Queen, or the pub- lic. Lord CASTLEREAGI! thought that the breach of the ordinary rule regarding giving notice was most incon- venient. He thought the precedent bad ; and put it to the House whether the Constitution was likely to be im- proved by some of the late reformations.—( Many cheers.) He was not prepared to give or refuse his concurrence, but the information could not be supplied by Friday.- r- Unprepared as he was he moved the previous question. Mr. TIERNEY thought the conduct of the Noble Lord most extrordinary. The Noble Lord had decided j on the question, yet could not produce the document on ! which that opinion was founded. He adverted to the sub- | ject of ministerial influence, and disavowed any influenc on the part of the opposition. The coiiductof the Noble. | Lord was most calculated to produce debate and irrita- 1 tion. I Lord CASLEREAGH rose, but was interrupted by 1 cries of " spoke." l\ Ir. WETHERELL thought himself bound toper- severe. The Queen's name was omitted in February last, and did the Noble Lord mean to say that he had not pre- The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER hop- ed the House would look upon the point of the liturgy, not as a party matter, but as a question of constitutional law. A division then took place, and the numbers w « re, for the previous question 206"; against it 169. The previous question was therefore carried by a majority of 91. Mr. WET HER ELL - gave notice for to- morrow, of a motion for all orders in council, and other document*, relating to the exclusion of the Queen's name frjm the liturgy. THE KING'S SPEECH. The SPE A KE It read a copy of the King's specch. Mr. G. BANKS rose to move the address to the Throne. He stated, that the spirit of folly and tlw* spisii of mischief were abroad ; the latter exciting to discon- tent and idleness, and the former endeavouring to per- suade the people to be miserable, when they might be happy. He noticed the difficulty of the situation of a Prince at such a period, and the choice he had to make of dilH- cultics and expediencies, and applied his observations to the existing circumstances of the country. Blasphemy was abroad, and immorality was left iu some sort to be its own cure. Still we have liv^ d through die meetings of the past year, aud the pageantry o! the present. Abroad^ all was calm and tranquil. Our flag was respected in every quarter of the globe, but still the voice of clamour was loud and incessant— in such a state, suprnoness was a crime, and the refusal to express the feelings of loyalty a cowardice at least. The Hon. Gentleman then notice;! the separate topics in the speech, as to a . provision for the Queen ; it was sufficient to express acquiescence without uttering a word that could prevent that unanitnuy he hop- ed and expected. He then read the address founded up- on the Royal speech. Mr. BiiOWN seconded it in so low atone of voice as to be quite inaudible for some time in the gallery. He hoped that all classes would return to a sense of their duty and loyalty V) their Sovereign. National debauchery audi national ruin went hand in hand. The justice of then- cause would carry Ministers through their arduous labours in defence of lawful power and hallowed institulious. The Addresshaving been read, Mr. CUR WEN found nothing in the Speech mate- rially to be objected to ; but he complained that minis- ters were little acquainted with the i^ eal state of the coun- try. The agriculturists were in a state of ruin, and ail- men were called upon to admire their patriotism and their loyalty, in times of such deep distress, ( hear.) For years it had been foretold that certain ruin was approaching; but session after session had passed without inquiry, la the speech, the olive branch of peace seemed to be held out, jmd he trused it might be accepted. lie was con- vinced that a moderate and timely reform was absolutely necessary, and all ranks agreed in tire total inability of ministers. The country could not go on paying its pre- sent taxes ( hear, hear.)— The only way to meet danger was to look it fairly in the face. Mr. TIERNEV observed, that he did not. intend to trouble the House with any Amendment on the Address which had just been read. When nothing was introduc- ed into the Speech from the Throne which could provoke discussion, it was useless to propose any thing which might disturb th « unanimous concurrence iu the Address pro- posed, and which merely repeated the topics of the Speeds • This was not the time for entering into discussion upou the affairs of Italy ; but he could not avoid saying, that Ministers would imperfectly perform their duty, if tliey would stand by, aud not - prevent the Grant Powers from exercising acts of wanton aggression on the smaller ones, ( hear, hear, hear.) After all the millions which England had expended to secure the peace of Europe, it was very- modest of Ministers toexpress their humble hope that the peace might not now be cli- turbed. ( hear.) There was a time when England would have ensured the preservation of peace, and not be content with expressing so vague an ex- pectation about it. There was one part of the Speech which was of a most extraordinary natur:—'; e meant thai; part which alluded to the state of the finances. It stated that the Revenue of the United Kingdom for the last year, by which, he presumed, was meant the year ending five 5th Jan. 1821, exceeded that of the preceding one : un- doubtedly every one knew it, and every one was aware of the cause also, or else it would not have been stated.—• The fact was, there were 3 millions of new taxes which came into operation last year. Three quarters of the pre- cedingyear had not the benefit of any part of that sum.-— The tax was laid on lor • he purpose of raising ^ 3,200,000^ but the increase of the income of the last year over the pre- ceding one was only £ 2,200,000. Thus it would appear, t'rat instead of an improvemeni in our revenues, we had lost a million, ( hear, hear.) The revenue arising from- articles of consumption also, which had been relied on a « r shew ing an improvement in the last quarter compared with the corresponding quarter of preceding year, proved no-* thing, because it did not prove that the consumption of the whole year was improved. What a regular deJusioa this was! IJut every man could see the progress of na- tional calamity, and it was impossible the deJusiou could any longer deceive the nation. As to the demand for ma- nufactures, there was no doubt, that iu some manufactur- ing districts there had been an improvement, and in those tranquillity prevailed, which formed an additional argu- men to those which he and others had advanced last Ses- sion, against the charges of extensive sedition, thai the people were not disturbed by a spirit of disaffection, but from the pressure of distress, ( lreai, hear.) He bad now to touch upon a delicate subject, he meant the provision for her Majesty. The Speech stated, that the separate- provision of £ 55,000 which was made for the Queen a& Princess of Wales, in the year 1814, terminated with the demise of his late Majesty ; his Majesty had in the mean time directed advances, as authorised by law, and, unde^ present circumstances, it would be for Parliament to con- sider what new arrangements should be made on the sub- ject. He ( Mr. T.) thought that when the Crown recom- mended a provision for any branch of the Royal Family, it was usual to state the sum required, or something near it- It was wot customary for the Crown to speak of pecuniary provisions under the indefinite term, arrangement. Mi- nisters should Have stated the sum ; for it was not th ® business of Parliament, and never bad been its practice to* make such arrangements.— ( hear). The manner in which- this subject was expressed was also out of the ordinary way. The more gracious mode, as well as the more pre- cise, would have been the usual one, and which would be hailed with more pleasure now than at any former time, because it would help to put an end to the quarrel by which the country had been so iong harassed and disturb- ed. It certainly did appear very strangp, that iu a Speech from the Throne, professing to review the state of all na- tional interests, no notice had been taken of the existence* of agricultural distress, which was pressing on the country, from all quarters : but it remained for them to do their duty, and to impress on the people the conviction of their anxiety and readiness to relieve them. Theit? was another topic which the Speech did not omit to notice: it was- that which spoke to the satisfaction which his Majesty; had received from the loyal addresses which ha< ii been voted to the Throne from different parts of- the- kingdom. He was glad that those things had given his- Majesty satisfaction ; but it was very remarkable that the Loyal Addressers did not express affection or attachment, to anything in the shape of a man in this coun try but his Majesty, ( a laugh. Where a respectable County Meet- ing was demanded, to animadvert upon the late measures. ' of the Government, the Sherifl'iuterposed obstacles in, the way, and did all in his power to prevent it. He ( Mr. T.) did not forget that in the discussion on the Bill for regu- lating Public Meetings during last Session, the advocates-- of Ministers had stated that it would add a dignity to the right of Petition, lo put Meetings for that purpose under the control of the Sheriff; but now it appeared to be equi- valent to obstructing the right of Petition. He must say^ that in some instances the conduct of the Sheriffs had been quite outrageous. But whenever Meetings had been al- viously looked into the documents and history of the sub- ject? It was * desperate step after the unvarying usage of i lowed tu be convened, whether, ill Whig_ or Tory couniu.% as they were called, to vole Addresses expressive of loyjl- ty they could not refrain from tacking to them Amend- ments, condemnatory of the conduct of Ministers, to whom the country was aware that it was indebted for more evils than 10 the licentiousness of the press. These Addresses, however, we were told, had contributed to the happiness of his Majosty, although he ( Mr* Tiemey) must be al- lowed to state that they had not contributed to the hap- piness, honour, or security of any other man in the king- dom, ( hear, hear ! and laughter.) Lord CASTLE RE A Gtl said, we could not say how ptlier nations were to feel who thought their interests en- dangered ; if \ Ve enjoyed peace ourselves we should endea- vour to preserve it, but not presume to dictate to other powers, and thus arrogate t\ ie right of intermeddling vith the affairs of others, which we condemned in them.— Whenever the proper time should arrive, his Majesty's Government would be prepared to shew, that the language had been held by this country* and the principles on which that language had been founded, were perfectly consistent with its character. This, however, he begged leave at once to say, that it must not be inferred that Great Britain was of necessity a party to all the delibera- tions and conclusions consequent on those discussions, at which a British Minister might be present. We had our own interests to watch over ; and in his opinion it was an additional proof of the confidence happily existing among the great- Powers of Europe, that they received at their meetings the Ministers of Powers, who werj not imme- diately connected with the measures in progress ; in or- ' der that their respective Governments might, nevertheless, have the satisfaction of knowing the exact nature of those measures. He would uow shortly state, what the propo- Right Hon. Gentleman was wholly insufficient. Ad verting to the Address which had been cited by the Noble Lord, he characterised it as foully scandalous ; and com- mented with math severity on the bad grace with which the selection of it proceeded from a Noble Lord who had issued a celebrated circular to the Magistrates of the country, on the subject of libel. Hie Address was then put and agreed to. Adjourned at nine o'clock. Wednesday, Jan. 21'. THE QUEEN. The Marquis of T A VI STOCK gave notice, that on Monday se'ennight he would move a Resolution, expres- sive of the opinion of the House 011 the conduct of Minis- j ters towards her Majesty. Sir H. LEMON presented a Petition from Truro, praying the restoration of the Queen's name to the Li- • tttrgv. ! Mr. TYNTE laid upon the Table a Petition from Bridgew- ater, praying inquiry into the conspiracy against Mtion was, which the Speech was intended to express.- The object of the passage in the Speech was to declare • that the revenue of the present year, notwithstanding the deficiency of the Irish Trade, and of the Foreign Trade, bad considerable increased, as compared with the revenue of the former year ; and, givingcredit to the new taxes for their produce, that there was on the face of the returns a clear indication of an increase of the revene indepen- u rlcntly of the produce of the new taxes. In the early part of the last year there was certainly a marked fall- ing off in the commerce of the country, but that de- pression had ceased; and lookir.--. tfce last half year, there was great reason to entertain the prospect of a complete return of our commercial prosperity. Although every man must regret that there still existed much local pre- sure and distress, he appe. ded to the House whether in the situation of those districts which were suffering most when Parliament last inquired into the subject, there was not a marked improvement. Not only were the wages of the manufacturers in general increased, but those wages were rendered more applicable to the wants of the individuals, bv the reduction which had taken place in the price of the necessaries of life. There was every reason to hope, that this favourable state of tilings would become more satisfactory. Now with respect to that part of his Majesty's Speech which related to the provision to be made for her* Majesty, he did uot understand theTlight Hon. Gent, to make any complaint, hut that it would have been more becoming if bis Majesty's Ministers had advised his Majesty to suggest some specific sum as that which he would recommend for their adoption. He could assure the Right Hon. Gent, that, if he imagined that his Majesty's go- vernment advised the prosecution { a loud laugh.) lie could assure the Right Honourable Gentleman that, if he ima- gined that his Majesty's government advised the proroga- tion of Parliament, to evade the discussion of their con- duct in that or the other House, he was much deceived. Jle could assure the Right Hon. Gentleman, that nothing was more gratifying to him than that the moment had ar- rived in which the whole of that conduct might be inves- tigated. and considered with that gravity and delibera- tion which, it was the interest of the country, should attend all their proceedings. For himself, he could justly say, that he had never felt any difficulty, in the situation of the country, which had not been considerably relieved by the application of the wisdom of Parliament to the subject. Ill recommending to his Majesty, therefore, to prorogue the Parliament in November last, his Majesty's minis- ters had not been influenced by any wish to elude inquiry. They had no disposition to conceal any thing from the J louse on that subject. Public opinion, when once fairly and coolly collected, must always have its due weight on the measures of public men. He ( LordC.) trusted that no minister would ever dare to show his face in that House, who had lost the confidence of the country, ( a [ apgh, and cries of hear.) The minister who had really l05f the confidence of the country, could not possess the confidence of that House; for the people of the country, he meant the rational part of the cominu- nltv that part which alone ought to possess any Influence over the legislature— always made its sentiments as dis- tinctly and intelligibly felt in that House as if the wildest plan of reform that was ever proposed had been adopted, lie could assure ifce Right Honourable Gentleman, that if lie supposed either himself or his colleagues wished to re- main in the service of their Sovereign a moment longer than they possesed the confidence the House and the country, he had mistaken the men he had to deal with. Lord FOLKESTONE certainly did not entertain much hope that the country would get rid of the Noble J , ord if it depended on that House. So long as the influ- ence of Government was exercised in that House; that was, so long as the House was constituted as it was, solong be had no doubt the Noble Lord would enjoy the confidence and support of that Iiouse in spile of the country. He dared to say that the Gentlemen of the Treasury, if they exhibited the correspondence which usually took place be- fore the meeting of Parliament, would all'ord a very satis- factory reason for the expectation of Ministers 011 the sub- ject. But if the Noble Lord relied on the confidence of the country — if he thought, that because he possessed the confidence of the Sovereign and of that House he there- fore possessed the confidence of the country, he w ould find that be was very much mistaken, l'he events of the last three months ought to convince the Noble Lord of his error, if he supposed that he and his Friends possessed the confidence of the country. At no period of our history had half, or even a tithe of the number of public meetings taken place, that had been held within the period he had mentioned ; andat every one of those meetings, held in such a manner as to admit of public discussion, the con- duct of the Noble Lord and his Colleagues had experien- ced the most unequivocal reprobation. That a number of what were called Loyal Addresses had been sent up to the Crown, he knew perfectly well ; but they had been voted in secret, among gentlemen w ho were professed supporters of the present Administration, though not one of them had ventured to ezpress any opinion of the measures of the Noble Ixird and his colleagues. Expressions of loyalty coming in such a way were not of much value. In his conscience he believed that his Majesty knew nothing of the way in which these addresses were got up ; and of this he was persuaded that some of them contained ex- pressions. which, if repeated to his Majesty, would incur his reprehension ; and here he could not but remark on • what be conceived to be the impropriety of a person taking upon himself, as the Secretary of State did, to select par- ticular addresses to be presented to his Sovereign, because he considered them more affectionate, more dutiful, or more loyal than others ; he disapproved of this sort of proceeding, as unconstitutional and unfair. It only gave lis Majesty one view of the question, and deprived him of the opportunity of knowing any thing of the other. The Noble I. ord hail selected one address among others which had rcceutly been inserted in the Gazette, which, had it" appeared in any other paper, would have called down severe indignation. It was an Address which had come from a set of clergymen in Scotland, and which, among other things, inveighed against the " unconstitu- tional speeches which appeared to have been delivered 111 both Housesof Parliament ;" and then adverted in strong terms to the conduct of that House in particular, 0) 1 the Lite extraordinary prorogation. It was an Address con- taining those sentiments which the Noble Lord had taken upon himself to select to be sent up to the Crown ; and jt was language of this sort, applied to the Constituted Authorities of the State, that he had thought proper to publish, and then complained of the licentiousness of the Press > Mr. WOni'. IIOUSF. protested against the assump- tion that whoever supported the measures of Administra- tion, especially with reference to her Majesty, must neces- sarily be a most servile dependent on a moat wicked Go- vernment. Mr. BATHURST explained ( but in so low atone of v « iee as prevented us from hearing him) the circumstances which rendered it incumbent 011 the Noble Secretary of S- ate for the Home Department to malce the selection from the Addresses, with which he had been charged by the Noble Lord. Mr. W AKR. E contended, th » t the explanation of the the Queen. The Hon. Member bore witness to the loy- alty and respectability of the Petitioners. Mr. WESTERN alluded to the professions of readi- ness on the other side to meet inquiry. The country had been insulted by false and perjured evidence, and by a case of the grossest conspiracy, and he wished to know whether the Noble Lord ( Castlereagh) intended to institute any such inquiry. Lord CASTLEREAGH said, that he would not be dragged by high sounding phrases into a premature dis- cussion of a subject yet to be debated, and he should de- cline therefore to answer the question, though not from any feeling of disrespect to the Hon. Member. If he thought Ministers had misconducted themselves, and in- quiry were necessary, a motion for that purpose might be made. Considering the disinclination of the other side formerly to enter into the subject while the proceeding was pending in the Lords, it was singular that they were now so anxious to meet every question. General FERGUSON referred to amotion in the last bach. On that ground, after remaining throe weeks here, he understood that the individual in question returned to the Continent. If that was really the fact, it mattered little what hope of the preservation of peace might be ex- pres'ied in his Majesty's, Or in the Minister's speech. fo> here, was a ih'rect overt act of hostility against the Neapo- ] lita'n Government. Lord CASTLEREAGtl declared the impossibility of entering into all the. details of this subject, even were he prepared himself to feel all the animation with which the gallant General appeared invariably to contemplate every possible species of revolution, lie denied, however, th.^ t a reluctance to acknowledge a revolution suddenly effect- ed in any couutry was a just ground of hostility. With- out entering into particulars, he would merely observe that the English Government were required to recognize new forms and changes, suddenly brought about under very mysterious circumstances, and principally by one sect. It seemed tolerably evident that the Object of that sect was not confined to Naples, but extended to the sub- version of all the existing Governments in Italy, and the union of the whole into one State, rfe by no means wished to declare that such a plan demanded, or would justify, the interference of neighbouring powers. That must be a subject of much deliberation and investigation on the part of those powers, and it was a problem, which he trusted, we should not undertake to solve. He posi- tively denied, however, that we had done any thing which would justify the Neapolitan Government in considering it as an act of hostility ; and he could assure the Gallant General that we had not done any thing which the Nea- politan Government so considered. Mr. HUME, although he rather differed from his Hon. Friend on the question of the propriety of interfer- ence on the part of this country, thought that we ought to take every opportunity of showing olir good will to- wards the Neapolitans. It had been stated to him. that an application had been made to our Government, to know if permission would be granted to export to Naples a supply of arms, for the manufacture of which a cotn- I mission had been received in this country. If such an application had been made and refused, it would show Session made by him for this subject, the Noble Lord then said that the time was uot come : the timefiad now arrived, aud he wished to know whether the Noble Lord would produce them.—( Hear.) Lord CASTLEREAGH replied, that if the time was now come, the Hon. Gentleman might move for the papers. that our Government favoured the objects of Austria, Russia, and Prussia, rather than the struggle of the Nea- politans for independence. He should be very sorry if such a disposition had manifested itself, and he requested to know how the fact stood ? Mr. F. ROBINSON replied, that as the law at pre- sent stood, there was no obstacle to the export of arms to assemblies of the I louse of Commons to be found or, re- cord. The House did not. adjourn till near seven o'clock on Saturday morning.— Particulars iu our next. FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. Mr. RENNET repeated the charge of conspiracy, and demanded inquiry. Lord CASTLEREAGH answered, that it was for those who charged conspiracy to make out their case by proving it.—( Cheers.) Petitions were laid upon the table from Bedford, Hull, Cockermouth, Gloucestershire, Gateshead, Wiltshire, Grimsby, and the Ward of Cripplegate, for the restora- tion of the Queen's name to the Liturgy, and for the im- peachment of Miuisters, Sheriff WAITHM AN presented at the bar the peti- tion from the Common Council of London against further measures against the Queen. Mr. IIUME presented similar petitions from Banff, Arbroath, Aberdeen, Perth, aud Annan. Several other petitions were presented. The Marquis of TAVISTOCK begged to know whether Ministers intended to propose any remedies for the distresses of the country. < Lord CASTLEREAGH expressed his sympathy with the sufferings of the people, but he was not aware j that Ministers were in possession of any measure, whether regarding the averages or otherwise, which would be likely to afford r^ ief. Lord J. RUSSEL gave notice, that on Tuesday fort- night he would submit a motion for o general measure relating to Corrupt Boroughs.—( Hear, hedr.) Sir F. BU11DETT said, till to- night he had not distinctly understood that Ministers had given up all further prosecution of the Queen. If so, it would give the country great satisfaction and tranquillity. In future it would not be said that the slightest aspersion remained on her character. He hoped therefore that there would now be no need of further discussion here, and that the King would at once restore the Queen's name to the Liturgy. Lord ;, GA STL ERE A GIF begged it might not be understood that Ministers had changed their determina- tion. The Bill of Pains and Penalties had been with- drawn without any intention of submitting another measure of the sabie character. Mr. BROUGHAM asked, whether the Noble Lord meant that no new inquiry was to be instituted against the Queen, but that all proceedings in the way of punish- ment were to be continued ? Lord CASTLE RE A Gil would not anticipate the argument on the subject. Lord JOHN RUSSEL said, that Ministers had re- fused to insert the Queen's name in the Liturgy, because proceedings of a criminal nature were pending. Now they were terminated, Government was in consistency bound to restore the Queen's name to the Liturgy. Lord CASTLEREAGI1 made no reply. Alderman IIEYG ATE presented a petition from Su cf bury. He Vegretted the original onus ion of the Queen'st name from the Liturgy, but it was now a tota ly differeu question whether it might now be restored. He took oc- casion toewnsure severely the letter of her Majesty to the King. It became the House of Commons to reflect be- fore it paid respect to such an individual, especially after the answers she bad given to the many addresses offered her, Mr. HUME termed these general charges unfair, un- manly, and ungenerous, and with great warmth justified the Queen's letter. Mr. Alderman IIEYG ATE vindicated himself in his turn. AFFAIRS OF NAPLES. Mr. BANKS appeared at the bar with the Report on the Address. On the question that it be brought tip, Mr. W. LAMB observed, that with respect to most of the topics to which the Address referred, there would be Various opportunities of discussing them. There was one, h- owever, of so urgent a nature, and on which a step might suddenly be taken so irremediable as to place it en- tirely out. of the power of that House, that he felt it to be impossible, consistently with his sense of duty, to allow it to pass without a few observations. The topic was the present state of the affairs of Naples, and of the conferences with reference to that State, which were supposed to be going on among the great Sovereigns of Europe. He knew that in touching on this subject, he was touching on a delicate matter, because it was one which might be considered in a course of negotiation, and he should therefore treat it accordingly. What he wished particu- larly to impress on, the minds of the Noble Lord and his Colleagues was, that if hostijties wefe once to commence in any part of Europe, no man could tell how far they might extend ; and to urge them to such an interference with respect to Naples as might prevent any such calamity. By such a wise and timely interference the peace and tranquillity of this country would stand a much better chance of being effectually secured than by the indulgence of any fallacious hope, that if hostilities were once com- menced in any quarter whatever, we might be able to keep this country from being compelled to enter into the contest. Lord CASTLE REACH observed, that as it was im- possible to dispatch a subject so interesting and important in a few sentences, it would, in his opinion, be more ex » pedierit to postpone its consideration until an opportunity might be afforded for discussing it in Parliament, in the amplest manner which it deserved. The general reason- ing of the Honourable Gowtleman was undoubtedly fair, but it did not appear to him to be strictly applicable to the line of policy which this country was, in the present ins- tance, called upon to adopt. He begged not to be under- stood as giving any opinion upon the present subject; but it must be evident to the Honourable Gentleman, and to the House, that other Powers might entertain apprehen- sions with respect to their own security, on which subject they might have opportunities of judging which this coun- try could not possess, and on which it would have no right to interpose. Sir ROBERT WILSON said, that he had been given to understand that a Neapolitan of high rank and charac- ter had been sent to the English Court by the Constitu- tional Government, recently established in Naples, but that having tendered his credentials, he was, though re- ceived with the Noble Lord's usual urbanity, not recog- nised in his character of Envoy, on the ground that it was impossible for the British Government to recognise any act of the new Government at Naples, until the Allied Powers had come to some decision on tiie nego- ciaiion then carrying on at Troppau, and tiince at Lay- any part of Europe except Spain. Power was given by J law to prohibit the export of arms by an Order of Coun- cil, but that power had been exercised only with reference to Spain. The export of arms to Naples was therefore perfectly free. THE QUEEN. Lord CASTLEREAGII gave notice, that on Wed- nesday he would submit to the House a motion on that part of his Majesty's most gracious Speech, which related to the provision to be made for her Majesty the Queen. Mr. WETHEREL gave notice for to morrow, of a motion for all Orders in Council, and other documents, relating to the exclusion of the Queen's name from the liturgy. PRIVATE BILLS- The Oth of February was fixed as the last day of re- ceiving Petitions for Piivate Bills. The 5th of March as the last day for the fust reading of Piivate Bills, and the 19th of April as the last day for receiving tire Reports of Private Bills. FtlOM FBENCIIPAPERS. PARIS, Jan. 27.— The Moniteur contradicts the re- port that the allied Sovereigns had invited the King <.•'' Spain to join them at Laybaeh. Mr. Canning is arrived in that city. The Emperor of Russia and King of Naples have arrived at Lay bach. The Chambers present nothing of any interest. The fortune left by M. Fouche is said to be two millions of francs. , TURIN, Jan. 13.— The day before yesterdvy four students of the University appeared at the theatre of Argene with the famous bonnet rouge on their heads, and Using improper language. Two of them were arrested on their way out, but their fellow- students collected in great numbers, and the Adjutant of the place was obliged to set them at liberty. Ilis Excellency the Governor as- sembled the troops, which marched towards the Univer- sity with the greatest enthusiasm, amidst shouts of " t7iv'e le Roi /" Having arrived at the University, they forced the great gate, when a party of the students attempted to pass. Twenty of them were wounded, some severely, and the most, mutinous were arrested. Several of the soldiers were hurt. During this affair the people assembled on the spot applauded the soldiers, aud shouted " i'iue le IioiJ" FROM GERMAN PAPEIIS'. VIENNA, Jan. 6.— Lord Stewart, the British Am- bassador, is not going to Lay bach, where his place will be taken for the time by Sir A. Crordon. It was remark- ed that when Lord Stewart gave his fete on the 1st of this month, none of the Archdukes were present— a circum- stance which is contrary to the usual custom. In case the Austrian troops should advance against Naples, it is supposed the Allied Sovereigns will prolong their stay in Italy, and follow the army to the south. AUGSBURG, Jan. 14.— The Swiss Confederation and the Piedmontese Government had conceived some alarms on account of the assembly of a considerable corps of Austrian trdops on the frontiers of the Swiss Cantons of Tessino and the Grisons, and of Piedmont. It appears from the explanations given on the subject, that the ne- cessity of distributing over several points an army so con- siderable as that which is novv in Italy, is the cause that some provinces adjoining to the Swiss frontiers are more or less crowded with troops. VIENNA, Jan. 19.— Parties seem united in this capi- tal in the sentiment, that for the safety and tianquillity of the Italian territories of the Emperor, it was necessary to ascertain precisely, aud from the highest authority, the nature of the proceedings at Naples. The King and his friends were overpowered by a great faction which has long been gaining strength. & nd he, not less Instil the Emperor and his Allies, was anxious that some interposition should be made for his own personal security, and for the preser- vation of the Crown and his family. It is generally ru - moured that the Emperor of Austria was not the first to snggest a conference, or at least the possibility of inter- position, AMERICA, <£ c. papep to the 28? h. religious mingled itself with these civil distinctlor^ and Contributed not a little to heighten. and inflame them, 5" The following article is copied froiti the Dublin Morn- ing Post of the 20th instant :— , , SUCCESS OF TLLE KUTCII EXPEDITION AGAINST THE SCINDIANS. » " Bombay, Sept. 12, 1820. • " While T was seeing the last of your goods on board last night, a vessel arrived jn the. harbour,; having oil board an officer from Kutch, y/ ho was the bearer of the, official intelligence of the complete success of Sir Charles Colville'sig& peditlon: against the ;, Sc. india- ns, The expe « dition consisted of 12* 000 men, commanded by his Ex- cellency the Commander- in- Chief; from all I could glean of intelligence from the followers, it appeared there had ; been some hard fighting for five days, but it ended as might . be, anticipated* from the imposing , force sent against the Scmdiahs.. The moment the officer ( who i t one of the Staff and an Irishman) landed, he set out tor Government House, to inform Lady Colville of the event, as it must be supposed she was in a state of anxiety-, her hitvband being the Commander, and lier brother and her uncle, Colonel T. Blair, being also in the expedition.— At day- light this, morning orders arrived froffl Govern- ment House to secure a passage and pi ivate cabin for the officer. in. theshipwhic. il takes this to England, but there, was no such accommodation, as the cabins- were all full, and as another vessel vvilj not sail from thence before teti! days, and this will be off to- day,, the chance is*. you wilt have tills letter at least six weeksbefore the officer can reach England with the official intelligence. All kinds of Euro- pean produce are a drug here, particularly fine goods ; and rum, brandy, and geneya ^ are for a song. The cholera has rather abated, but still rages in a frightful manner.". ... . }. , BISHOPS.— All Bishops are not batterers. Tn the first. division of Poland,; in 1775 the. Bishopric of Erm- land fe. ll to Prussia. Bishop Kraisky, a man of great learning, audrwit^ and. a severe sufferer on this occasion, had frequently the honour of dining w. Uh his Majesty.— The King one day said pleasantly to the Bishop, " Bo pleased, when you go to Ileaven, to take me under your mantUs" Upon which the. Bishop replied, Your Ma- jesty has been pleased to Curtail so much of my revenue, and ip consequence, so much of the. length of my cloak, that I fear I shall not be able to cover your Majesty's feet,, and shall be detected in the act of smuggling contraband goods /" , MARKETS, Sfc. CORN EXCHANGE, Jan. 2$. . A considerable quantity of Wheat remained over froni Wednesday's market, for which there was little demand this morning, and the sales were heavy even of the finest qualities, at Monday's prices.

Prices nearly the same as last day.— Barley jFriday, Jan. 23. * LIBEL. Sir JOHN NEWPORT gave notice of a motion for Thursday, respecting a gross libel on both Houses of Par- liament. A great number of Petitions were presented, com- plaining of the proceeding against the Queen, and pray- ing the. House to adopt the most effectual measures for procuring the restoration of all her rights and privileges, which were are all laid upon the table, and ordered to be printed. Mr. JERVOISE presented a Petition from the Free- holders of Hampshire, signed l « y upwards Of 10,000. Sir W. UE CKESPIGNY said, that having been one of the chief actors in the farce—( Laughter)— of getting up the Petition ( for in future county meetings were to be consipered as farces, he wished to say a few words on the subject. He pledged himself to the respectability of the very great numbers of freeholders who attended. He was astonished hear of such an assembly having been call- ed a mob. By and by every assembly would be called a mob, except battalions of infantry and squadrons of dra- goons. Those very Gentlemen opposite, who had, as he would say, dared to laugh—( Laughter)— ought to have resented such language as degrading to the country and an affront to Parliament. He cared not from what mighty mouths such expressions might come, but they wire dis- graceful. He could admire the great talents of a military Chieftain; but such persons ought to consider that they were uot then in Waterloo, or the Peninsula, nor in the Wretched states of Germany, where they were to be cowd into slavish submission and silence. Mr. WELLESLEY POLE would take the liberty of offering a few observations in reply to what had fallen from the Hon. Baronet, He hoped he had not miscon- ceived the Honourable Member's allusions ; but he could inform him that if acquaii* ted with the character of that Noble Personage, he would say that there was no indivi- dual in this country, nay, in the world, who valued more highly the liberties of his country,—( Loud cries of" Hear, heara nd laughter J)- o7ti the Opposition Benches j— There was no man in this country who knew him that did not value his constitutional principles. He believed that Hon. Gentleman misunderstood the statement of his Noble Relative, whose great achievements had not only been valued here but all over the world. He did not mean to say that all count vmeetings were Jarces, but that thosemeetings deserved the appellation where nothing pre- vailed but disorder and tumult, and where only one side could be heard. He was not in the habit of weighing his words, not being a regular public speaker, and that a hasty observation had been snatched up by those who were in the habit of bestowing more attention to their words; but he was quite sure that there was no man in this coun- try valued more highly than his Noble Relative the inva- luable right of petitioning. Sir W. DE CRESPIGNYreplied. AGRICULTURAL PETITIONS. Mr. SYKES presented a petition from the East Rid- ing of Yorkshire, complaining of agricultural distiess.— He wished that the House would take this subject into consideration. He was satisfied that nine- tenths of the people were favourable to the prayer of the petition. The petitioners also prayed the dismisssal of Ministers. It was read and laid on the table. LORD REGISTRAR OF SCOTLAND. Mr. KENNEDY wished to know what determination Government had come to with respect to the office of Lord Clerk Registrar of Scotland, Vacant by the death of an Hon. Member. Lord CASTLEREAGH answered, that as the office was not within his department, he could not give a satis- factory reply. lie would, however, make inquiries. The House having resolved itself into a Committee of Supply— Mr. CREEVEY wished to make one observation on that occasion. With respect to whether the observation said to have fallen from an illustrious individual in another place, were true or not, he could not tell. That obser- vation might perhaps have been imported from the Sove- reigns at Troppau, who seemed to consider every thing a farce but power and rapine—( Hear)-— but for a real farce, recommend him to a Committee of Supply—-( Much laughter.)— But he hoped the people would take this matter into their serious consideration. They should hold public meetings for that purpose all over the " country. The people had lately taken a noble attitude, they had preserved the Queen from being sacrificed by the Ministers of the Crown—( Hear, hear)— they had (' preserved the laws and constitution of the country from being subverted by the Ministers of the Crown— and he hoped they would now take into their serious considera- tion the preservation of their own properties against the Ministers of the Crown.— ( Loud applause.) Lord ARCHIBALD HAMILTON then brought forward his promised motion in the shape of the following. Resolution :—" That the Order in Council of the 12th of February, 1850, which excluded the nartteofher Ma- jesty from the prayers of the Church., appears to this House to be a measure ill- advised and inexpedient.' 5 The Noble Lord's proposition was met by Mr. Robinson moving an immediate adjournment, which was carried bv a majority of 101 ; the votes. for Mr, Robinson's amend- ment being 310, and against it 5203— one of the fullest American papers received at Liverpool, state, that the bill for the admission of the state of Mis- souri into the Union, which had passed Senate by a ma- jority of four, has been rejected in the House of Repre- sentatives by a majority of fourteen, in consequence of its proposed constitution, Which recognises the existence of slavery. We stated in our last that the William, which arrived at Liverpool on Friday, from Jamaica, brought accounts of a noticehaving been posted up at the Coffee- room, King- ston. 15th November, stating that Lord Cochrane had taken Lima ; but accounts from Jamaica, through the United Suites, have been received to the 50th Nov.. which do not make any mention of the fall of Lima. It must therefore be incorrect. This report appears to have arisen from the defeat of a corps of Royalists by the Pa riots, the commander of the Royalists being called General Lima.— The battle took place on the 4th November, near Santa Martha. General Lima, with about half a dozen officers and privates, were all who escaped— 200 were killed. It was supposed that Santa Martha would surrender to the Patriots on the best terms that garrison could make. Wheat. Hrst— 32s Second- 50s Third— 28 s Od | Od I Od I liar Icy. Oats.

Id. FAIRS. JANUARY—( New Stile.) LONDON, Jan. " 27. On Wednesday and Thursday his Majesty held a Court at his Palace in Pail Mall, at which the addresses of the Houses of Lords and Commons were received, to which his Majesty returned most gracious answers. The meeting of the merchants, & c. was attended on Wednesday at the Mansion House by all the young and middle aged ; some of the oldest members of the very first houses of London. Never before was the representation of so much wealth assembled in the Egyptian Hall. There were present fully two thousand persons. When Mr. Baring was about to reply to the amend- ment proposed by Sir W. Curtis, and seconded by Mr. Bosanquet, from a signal, as is supposed, by some of Sir W. Curtis's adherents, the most dreadful uprdar com- menced, and was continued, so as to drown Mr. Baring's voice. Mr. Wilson, the Member for the City, then presented himself, but having a feeble voice, soon lost the Hall's attention, which became tumultuous. The resolutions, however, were carried by a large majority, though the previous question may have been supported by 400 persons. ADDRESSES TO THE QUEEN. A great number of Congratulatory Addresses were pre- sented to her Majesty] at Brandenburgh- bouseon Monday. The processions of { he Working Mechanics and Indus- trious Classes, with numerous flags and bands of music, passed Hyde- park- corner about ten o'clock. The Smiths, the Calico Printers, the Glass Blowers, the Carpenters and Joiners, and the Brass Founders, marched in regular order, decorated with the appropriate emblems of their respective trades. The concourse along the principal streets leading to Hyde- park corner was immense during, the whole of the morning. The Strand, for some hours, was almost impassable. The Lord Mayor, with the City Address, went in his state carriage, at 12 o'clock, accompanied by the Sheriffs and Livery of London, there being not less than oO pri- vate carriages in the procession. Letters and Papers from Naples to the 3d instant, were received on Saturday. To give additional zeal to the officers of the army, a general promotion, of one step in rank, has taken place, from the Lieut.- Colonels to the Second Lieutenants inclusive. The measure is, however, freely condemned, on account of the increased expfcnee imposed by it on the nation, and its tendency, by making promotion universal, to lower its value as the distinctive reward of merit. Some embarrassments have arisen in the financial- department of the Neapolitan Government, from an unexpected refusal of the bankers at Paris, who h, 1d contracted for the supply of a loan of three millions of ducats, to pay the second instalment ; but this backward- ness is said to have arisen solely from some informality in the documents, and not from any distrust of the resources of Naples. The security to the Paris bankers has been, indeed, so complete, that scarcely any reverse would make it their interest to evade the fulfilment of the con- tract. The following is a report of the intended reduction of the army :— The whole- of the veteran battalions ; in the three regiments of guards, all men under 5 feet 8 inches high, in the three battalions of the first; those under 5 feet 10 in the Coldstream ; and 5 feet 9 in the 3d regi- ment. Sir James Craufurd quitted Paris on Monday morning; two gendarmes and his servant were in the carriage with him. The wise man hath recorded that there is nothing new under the sun. The thing that hath been is the thing that shall be. An historian as eloquent as faithful, has registered the transactions of his own country for our ins- truction, though it will scarcely be credited that the fol- lowing passage, from Robertson, is not an interpolation to suit the events of Britain's history in the year 1820- 1 . " Meanwhile all the miseries of civil war desolated the kingdom— fellow citizens - friends— brothers, took dif- ferent sides, and ranked themselves under the standards of the contending factions. In every county, and almost, in every town and village, King's Men and Queen'-, Men were names of distinction ; political hatred dissolved al^ natural ties, and extinguished the reciprocal good wii* and eonfideoee which hold mankind together in society .

HIS Majesty, on Tuesday the 2: id inst. opcneJ the Session of Parliament by a Speech from the Throne, which was given in our tust paper. Minis- ters, whose speech this constitutionally and virtually is, in assuming a less lofty tone than hitherto, ami adopting the language of moderation on the great and leading topics to which tile public attention has been directed, encouraged the hope of a deference to the general opinion, 9tieh as w ould tend to tran quillize the country. But the ambiguity and obs- curity of this, as of all similar documents, is such as to admit of any interpretation, and therefore renders it impossible to collect any information as to the real intention of Ministers. It commences by saving, that " it will be matter of deep regret, if the occurrences which have taken place in Italy should eventually lead to any interruption of the tranquillity in that quarter;" but in that case, thev are to secure to '• this penjt/ c the continuance of peace." This is far from that open candid declaration of the sentiments of a Government determined to avoid all cause of olience, or appearance of countenancing the hostile designs of despotic powers against the freedom of their unoffending neighbours. If this does not afford a confirmation of the lute declaration of the Allies, it furnishes no proof to the contrary. Great Britain may not give \\ nr formal assent to the present meditated attempt tt » rivet the chains and perpetuate the slavery of the Italians, vet, by a neutrality which, in the present case, is neyrlv as hurtful to the cause of liberty as would an open avowal of hostile sentiments,- mav virtually aid the cause of its enemies.. But do we even adhere to tlte principles of strict neutrality by our line of conduct, as regards the kingdom of Naples ? Or, will our late proceedings warrant such a conclusion ? An Ambassador of the highest rank', from the Consti- tutional King of Naples, was not allowed to present his credentials to our Government, and a powerful British fleet has for a length of time been anchored in the Bay of Naples, with orders as strict in regard of their maintaining that station, exposed to till the peril of such a situation and climate at this season, as if they were actually- engaged in a blockade.— The Earl of LIVERPOOL has, indeed, disclaimed any participation in tlte measures of Austria, or any, other of the Aliied Powers, in regard to Naples.— To several qt- estions put to his Lordship bv Earl GREY, Lord LIVERPOOL replied, that the Court of London was no party to any proceedings now in progress with reference to Naples ; and that he would soon lay on tlieir Lordship's table, a paper addressed to the different powers of Europe, which would give the most complete contradiction to the notion, that the Courts of Vienna, Petersburgh, and Berlin, could have calculated upon the co- ope- ration of this Government. Lord CASTLEREAGII, in a subsequent discus- sion before the House of Commons, declined to answer the questions put to him 011 this interesting subject ; but disclosed enough to shew, that he bore r. o good will to Napbs in its regenerated state. His complaint of the revolution being brought about in secret societies is singular enough. Tvranny would never be successfully attacked, if the mea- sures for its subversion were publicly known, so its to allow preparation against the meditated attack.— But wltenwe see the leading Members of Adminis- tration at such variance 011 this interesting subject, with the important facts before us above stated, there is too innch reason to fear, that the conduct of Ministers is not such as ought to have been adopt- ed, by those wielding the resources of a free Go- vernment. Britain might have done much to avert the threatened blow by negociation or remonstrance. Sue!) a declaration iu favour of the Neapolitans would have had a powerful effjet, and is justlv due to a nation onfv asking from their King in his own language, what he promised them in 1815, the aboli- tion of a Government of Ignorance and Superstition, and a Representative Constitution. And if by our supincness, to say nothin'g more, we shall tamely allow the overthrow of this newly established Go- vernment, and by this tacit connivance present 110 obstacle to the scenes of horror and devastation which must accompany such unprincipled aggression, we shall have very little cause of gratulatiou iu see- ing the flame of war kindled, a calamity which mav involve the remotest countries of Eurojie, aud of which the consequences cannot be foreseen. A re- duction in our military establishment is announced in the Speech, but it must indeed be inconsiderable, if we judge from the previous total ignorance of the public on the subject, either as to its extent or effects. The Revenue is on the whole said to have exceeded that of the former year, but if the new taxes are taken from the account, we apprehend the balance will be against the country. Ireland, it is allowed, has in its receipts proved greatly deficient; and what branch of our commerce or manufactures has so far improved as to make tip this deficiency, we are at a loss to discover. No financial means are alluded to in the Speech, but one important dis- closure was made m the House of Lords, bv Lord LIVERPOOL, who stated, that the supplies for the present year would be provided without creating any new stock. In the present distressed state of the country, we do not see how taxation carried farther could be supported or rendered productive. His Majesty then introduces the subject which lias so. long agitated the country, and speaks with due resjiectof the Queen. He says, " the separate provision which was made for the Queen as Princess of Wales in 1811-, terminated with the demise of his late Majesty ;" recommends an arrangement for her Majesty ; and in conclusion, expresses " the firmest reliance 011 the affectionate and loyal attach- ment to his person and government, of which he has recently received so many testimonies from all parts of the kingdom." How widely different this enunciation of his Majesty's sentiments, from that odious and contemptible outcrv of disaffection and sedition, of blasphemy and irreligton, raised by the exclusively loyal addressers ? And what a cutting rebuke . do they here receive, in their basj attempt to vilify the Queen and libel the country, by which they expected to recommend themselves to Royal favour'{ The first division of the Session was that 011 a motion, offered without notice, by Mr. WET1IER- ELL, for the production of copies of all collects, liturgies, & c. from the reign of James I. in which the name of Queen Concert had been inserted : copies of collects or litanies annexed to the Act of Uni- formity, and of the Order in Council of the 12th February 1820: with a view to the better prepara- tion of tlte House for. the motion of Lord ARCHI- BALD HAMILTON, for obtaining tlic restoration of the Queen's name to the Liturgy. Lord CASTLE- REAGH, resisted the motion, which was negatived by a majority of ninetv- onc, the numbers being, on a division, 2C0 to 166; the motion was repeat- ed the following evening, and no opposition to it being made by Ministers, the papers were ordered. The great question, on which it was believed, hung the fate of Ministers, if not of the counti- y, was brought forward on the 26th tilt, when Lord ARCHIBALD HAMILTON made his promised mo- tion. Prepared as we iiave been, by dire experi- ence of disapjHMjitment on various occasions of vital importance to the country, we vet could not have anticipated the result of this momentous discussion in the House of Commons. If deference and re- spect to public opinion was to be expected; if it was to have its due weight with our Representa- tives, surely at no former period could a stronger ground of confidence been afforded the nation.— History does not furnish an example of a more loud and unequivocal expression of public opinion, in anv case, than that against the leaving outjthe Queen's name ill the Liturgy ; nor at any time could greater unanimity from all ranks of the community- be had, to manifest the decided disapprobation, almost univers- ally entertained, of the odious measure in question, and of the conduct of Ministers in general. The fecl- nigs and sentiments of the people, however, do not appear to have influenced the I louse of Commons 011 this occasion. Iu the verv teeth of public opinion does the Honourable House, by a majority of 101, refuse to decide, that leaving the Queen's name out of the Liturgy' was " au ill advised ami inexpedient measure," the numbers being for ad- journing the question 010; for the motion, 209. W hether Ministry have acted wisely, in setting their face directly against public opinion so decided- ly expressed, time will shew ; tutd no doubt prove also, how far it was expedient for them to exercise the power- thev now possess, of setting the voicBof the public at defiance on an occasion like tlte pre- sent. The act of leaving out the Queen's name in the Liturgy was not only unwise aud impolitic, but grossly illegal, as has been demonstrated by Mr. WETHKRELL, in one of the most able, speeches ever delivered in the House of Commons. In the majority of 101 were 80 Placemen, so that Minis- try have nogreat eausefor boasting of a majority, by which no Administration could have stood before that of Mr. PERCJVAL. Lord CASTLEISEAGH shewed great anxiety during the night, and im- mediately after the division sent a note bv Mr MASII, one of the Gentlemen Ushers, communicat- ing the result to his Majesty. In order to give as full a report as our limits will admit, we must postpone the particulars of this interesting debate till our next. The next question tobe brought forward by the Op- position is, the Marquis of' TAVISTOCK'S for a censure 011 Ministers. This will lie followed by another, for an Address to his Majesty, praying , him to restore tiie Queen's name to the Liturgy. . By a private letter, of date the 12th September, intelligence has been received of the complete suc- cess of Sir CHARLES COLVILLE'S expedition against the Scindians. The force under his Ex- cellency the Commander in Chief consisted of 12,000 men, who, as is reported, after five days hard fighting, were victorious. From the short time elapsed from the expedition leaving. Bombay, 011 the 27th August, and distance froiy jlje scene of action, this account appears verv doubtful, and therefore requires farther confirmation. The report of the fall of Lima to the united force under Lord COCHRANE and General SAN MAR TIN, on the authority of the master of a vessel ar- rived at Greenock, appears to lie discredited. On the contrary, it is stated, that Lord COCHRANE'S enterpiise must be unsuccessful, from the formid- able state of defence of the city of Lima. bourl, cod of Fochabers, a blue r0r" 7> wlmb i » also r>| i. posed to have been stolen. The people in Glenlivat . i,.' 1 Braemar, very much to their credit, refused to purchase the horse stolen from St. Vigeatts, because Andersen ( whose dialect is evidently lowland) otiered him at an un- dervalue. A METEOR.— On Saturday evening last, a lar e Meteor wa, i seen, about, half past 8 o'clock. Its direc- tion was nearly from east to west ; it appeared to have a dull r? t! bv'lv. with a tail of a biigtn red colour : it emitt- ed such a brilliant light, that the smallest objects on <} « e ground were visible to those w hu witnessed its woincntaiy appearance. By a Correspond- out at the distance of'abotft five miles, we are informed, that a space of so great an extent was illuminated, that one person might have seui. another at the distance of a mile. Front the cirtiHnst. n. ee of its being seen here, and likewise' at the distance of five miles, we are led to suspect that its altitude, when pass- ing over this city, WHS greater than we'at first imagined^ We are authorised to contradict the statement given iu some of the English papers that the Planet . Mercury waf* to pass over the Sun's disc at 6 o'clock this morning. At that hour, the Planet was full 5° west of the Sun, with more than 2° of South Latitude; consequently, the i'iamt must, at the time of conjunction, pass to the South of the Sun's disc. (£/• A SERMON will be preached to- morrow* ( February 4th) at St. George's Lodge. LtfcU Street' Worship will commence at ( 5 o'clock, p. M. Tiie Person who preaches on this occasion stands con- nected with the English Baptists; he will ultimate, at the close of the Services, his future mode of pro- cedure. CJ* Amongst the progressive improvements of many of our Manufactures in this place, we can- not in justice overlook that of fine BLACKING, as prepared by JAMES ROSS, Huxter Row, AUT- deeu ; the Specimen already offered to the Public, has a strong claim upon its patronage and eiicooni" c- metit, both on account of the reduced price, its beautiful black jet shiue, and its preservation for the leather. The Government of Spain, in a spirit,( of manly indcjxnidence, has given peremptory orders to their Envoys to deliver in a protest to tiie Governments of Austria and France, against the conduct of the allied Sovereigns with regard to Naples. An ex- planation of the reflections made 011 the Spanish Constitution in the late declaration is demanded.— The Emperor of Austria had called the Spanish Constitution " the Code of Anarchy ;" so that it was evident, the feeling at Troppau was as much against Spain as against Naples, while France, byv her offer of mediation to tlte latter, under tho in- sulting conditions proposed, displayed a hostile spirit against the cause of liberty in both kingdoms.— Such a firm and manly line of conduct justly be- came the Sovereign of a tree nation determined to defend its liberty and independence, aud thus assert not only those of his own, but the rights of all constitutional monarchies Had Great Britain, by a like open and liberal declaration, maintained its principles and character, a successful issue, alike favourable to the cause of liberty and our national honour, would, there is no reason to doubt, have quickly followed.
