The House met at JO O'clock to hear appeals, after whirl) it was ordered that no petitions for private bilishe received after the 15th day 6f March, and that no reports from the Judges, on petitions for private hills, he receiv- ed after the 18th April next. Lord G RENVILLE presented * petition from the potteries in Staffordshire, praying a removal of the re- strictions upon foreign trade. The Noble Lord said he apprehended a Committee on this Subject would be ap- pointed simitar to the one last year, when he would move ( bat this petition shou'd be referred to that Committee. f foiise in' tfie eye of the law the King was supposed - never *. to die ; but he conceived that such a suggestion would be a weak answer to his arguments. If, then, by the act of ; Charles II. it was equally imperative to mention berth the King and Queen, why did not the order On the accession j of his present Majesty embrace both their names? Me ivould further ask, and he should be happy to receive in- ; formation on that point, either from the Noble Lord op- posite, or from any of the Law Officers of the Crown, to what extent that act gave them authority Id act ? He ; wished to know whether the directions given by that act were precise, or whether it was left to their own discretion or caprice to insert in the Liturgy whatever names they ; pleased? He would ask them, whether it gave them au- thority to commit an act of degradation to the Queen ; I and he felt convinced, that whether the question was con- ; [ sidered as a matter of law or justice, the House would | come to the resolution that Ministers had ac The Marquis of LANSDOVVNE said, it was cer- tainly his intention to mcv*. the revival of the Committee in the course of next week. He took this opportunity to . Tsk the Noble Lord opposite ( Liverpool), whether it was likely any measure would be adopted with regard to the timber t rade, which he considered a matter of consider- able importance, and thought the acts relating to the timber trade required consideration. Lord LIVERPOOL admitted the importance of the subject, and was of opinion that some measure should be adopted on this subject during the present session ; he was unable, however, to go into farther explanation at present, but should not be backward at the proper time to give the question all the consideration it might re- quire. This Noble Earl then referred to several ques- tions which had been put to him, on a former night, on the subject of Naples, and said that he moved for an ad- dress to his Majesty, for the production of a copy of the dispatch which had been sent out to the Allies, in con- sequence of a declaration issued by them, and which had been received in this country. Earl GREY expressed a wis!) that a copy of the de- claration in question might be included in the motion. The Earl of LIVERPOOL said, that although the declaration had been received in this country, and the dispatch in question sent out in consequence, yet that declaration had not been received officially, and therefore could not be recognised so as to lay a copy before the House. A desultory conversation then followed, and the motion was ultimately agreed to. Thursday, Feb. 1. The Earl of LIVERPOOL laid on the table, by command of his Majesty, the dispatch for which his Lordship moved yesterday. Lord HOLLAND said he had not been very fortu- nate in asking questions; but viewing the subject to vhich this paper referred as essentially involving the honour and character of the country, and perhaps also the peace and happiness of mankind, he wished, under the impression that this paper negatived the assertion of cur being bound by any treaty to attack Naples, or that it contained a disclaimer of those principles which were urged against the new system adopted at Naples— he wished to be informed whether tin's document had been officially communicated to the Neapolitan Government? The Earl of LIVERPOOL had no hesitation in Statin* that the paper had been communicated to all his Majesty's Missions not only in Europe, but also in the Brazils.— Adjourned till Mpjiday. 1 Although h< i rately acquainted with the legal ground upon which the Gentlemen opposite had proceeded ; yet he did not mean to question that they had proceeded upon the act to which he had before alluded. But he could not avoid express- ing his surprise, that not only the head of the Church, but the head of the Law, the Lord Chancellor, should have been present in the Council where the order for the exclusion of her Majesty's name from die Liturgy was determined upon. It might appear presumptuous in him to question so high an authority as the Lord Chancellor of England and the law Officers of the Crown, but he would mention one instance in which that order had been either illegal, or, to say the least, nugatory. The self- same order which had been issued in England, had also been sent to Scotland, over which it had manifestly no power ; and he would therefore say, in the presence of . the Lord Advocate opposite, that the order as it regarded Scotland was either a dead letter, or a direct violation of the law. What had been the consequence ? In Scot- but a feint, fd put { rf- ttie test the feeling?' of the House ; but why did the Noble Lord anticipate the resolution pro- posed by him, or rathfer, why did he not more manfully bring it forward ? It was impossible for any reasoning mind to account for the motion of the Noble Lord on any grounds, unless it was supposed that, in order to obtain the benefits of every shade of opinion, he had thought proper to modify his proposition. The Noble Lord had laid great stress on the petitions presented to the House, calculated to produce an effect, which washy him much desired, for they all prayed for the prompt re- insert ion of her Majesty's name in the liturgy, fhear. hear, from the opposition.) The Hon. Gentlemen who had thus cheered him, ought k) consider how that was to be effected. The course was by an address to the throne, but that the Noble Lord was not prepared to submit to the House ; no. the Noble Lord had hesitated to propose an address to the King, knowing or fearing that that proceeding would have been disagreeable to his Majesty. No, the Noble Lord had endeavoured to entrap the House of Commons, in order to induce it to do what, he feared to attempt. lie would therefore, partly following t'jje example of the Noble Lord, take the liberty of moving an amendment to the Noble Lord's motion, which was, that the House should then adjourn. Mr. IIOBHOUSE supported the original motion. Mr. WE THE RELL said, not only had the House to consider whether her present Majesty was to be deprived of her rights, to be dethroned by any act of the King's Privy Council, but whether a precedents was to be esta- blished. authorising that Council to act in a similar man- ner on any future occasion. In this view of the case, it was impossible to say that the case was one adapted only to the present moment. The future Queens of England were all interested in it. In deciding upon the case the House had to decide upon futurity, and to decide upon the abstract right, as well as whether the Privy Coun- cil could render void the practice and usage of the king- HOUSE OF COMMONS. Fridayi Jon. 426. MOTION RESPECTING the ERASURE of the QUEEN'S N A M E from the LI TU RG Y. I. ord A RC H IB A LD H A M ILTON, after apologising for his inability to do justice to so important a question, proceeded to observe, that he should limit his observations to the mere subject of the Liturgy, because more ample opportunities won Id arise for the consideration of all the proceeding*. But it was impossible to contemplate their Consequences on the country, and not feel disgust and in- dignation at the conduct of those men who had placed the country for so many months in such a state of jeopardy and danger. The conduct they adopted was not only un- wise and unconstitutional, but required the sirorigest ex- pression he could use to designate it properly— it was of the most revolting description he had ever witnessed. lie ( lid not use this term unadvisedly ; it was the only one suited to the occasion. He was not afraid of either Radi- cals or Reformers— he was aware of no danger equal to that risked by the Ministers ofthe Crown in advising the prosecution of the Queen. For himself, lie had all through been as forcibly impressed with their mischievous policy3as those petitioners were whose complaints the House had heard to- night. The ground on which he 1 called on tiie House to come to a Resolution was, " That it was unwise, improper, and inexpedient to have omitted the name of her Majesty in the Liturgy;" and lie called on Honourable Gentlemen to consider well the siru ition of her Majesty when that was done. Some gentlemen said, the subsequent conduct of her Majesty should be as transferred to what was charged before against her; but he wished them to divest themselves of such unworthy prejudices. A wprthy Alderman had lately said, that he - that he, forsooth— regretted the omission of her Majesty's, name in the Liturgy ; but then he talked of her letter to the King. What was that but trying her then for one thing, and punishing her for another ? Under one set of circumstances you ex- cluded her name from the Litur « y— and if you would ap- ply all bei subsequent acts to give a colour of justice to that act, he only asked them to apply the subsequent in- justice her Majesty had experienced toiler case, and give her the benefit they claimed for themselves and their acts. The principle on which they proceeded was most properly and happily alluded to the other evening by a Noble Friend near him, ( Lord Nugent), who said it was laying a person on the rack, and taking down the expicssion eli- cited by pain as the depositions of guilt. Before any trial, Ministers proceeded to takelier Majesty's name out of the Liturgy— an act not only unwise, but unjust, an act of <> TOSS injustice. For all that followed from this, they were indebted to his Majesty's Ministers. What was the situation of her Majesty then ? The laws had deceived fier. By law she was a Queen. In domestic enjoyments she was equally deceived— she had no husband— no state, and left this country with a letter of licence for her con- duct. Abroad she was followed by spies— persecuted by c* verv thing in the shape of diplomatic function— she was forced to go abour with no sort of protection from any one quarter. Placed then as her Majesty was in this condi- tiori, would the House affect to be shocked at her doing what her letter of licence allowed her—( if any thing guil- tv were done by her?) If even all was true itli which she v\ as charged— he still thought she never should have been prosecuted in the manner she was. The course of treatment adopted towards her both in this country and abroad was of such a nature, as should in his view prevent any reasonable man from preferring any accusation against her. But werethese tiie only thingsof which her Majesty had to complain ? Had she not already undergone one serious trial— a subject it was hot now necessary to enter on— but © n that trial was she not acquitted? Iler married life was a continued scene of suffering. Has her Majesty had fair play ? quite the contrary.—"( loud cheers.)— He should sav little on the legal part of the subject; but he wished the Right Honourable Gentleman opposite to state why her Majesty's name was originally excluded from the Li- turgy? It was said there were heavy charges against licr ; but why, when these charges were not proved, was riot her name restored to it ? The fact was, the Ministers Neither wished to consider her as innocent or guilty ; but they bottomed their conducC on a vague mixture of her be- ino- botli. The Noble Lord here referred to the Minutes land, as it ought to have been in England, the order had proved mere waste paper. He felt that he was not go- ing too far when he said that, as it regarded Scotland, the order was either illegal or useless. Now, though it was not very material to notice all the names which were at- tached to that order, yet there was one name which, from the extraordinary circumstances with which it was con- nected, he felt in some measure obliged to revert to.— lie alluded to the name of Mr. Canning. Nothing could be more disagreeable to himself than to speak invi- diously of a gentleman in his absence, but it was of that absence that he felt obliged to complain, ( hear.) That gen . tleman, he believed, at least so common report assured him, differed from Ministers in the view which they had taken of the prosecution of her Majesty. If then he had ; differed from them as to the propriety of that prosecution, j was it too much to expect him to have appeared and ex- j pressed the regard which he felt for her Majesty, and his j denunciation of the proceedings against her ? If his re- : signation had proceeded from principle, as lie had wished j it to be understood, would it have been too much for him j to have delayed his departure for a few days, in order to , have given her Majesty the benefit of his presence in that House? Having made these remarks, he should confine . the businessof the present, evening to moving a Resolution. : that the Order in Council by which her Majesty's name was removed from the Liturgy, was ill- advised and inex- pedient. He wished it, however, not to be imagined that his exertions should be con fined to that object alone. No. The rights of justice, the interests of the country demand- ed, that Ministers should not only be censured for the errors of the past, but stimulated to act right in future, and right could only be done by restoring her Majesty's name to that Liturgy from which it had been so unjustly expunged, ( cheers.) The striking of the name of the Queen out of the liturgy was not merely an injury done toher Majesty ; it was injurious to the crown itself. On what principle would it be contended that the dignity of the crown could remain safe and uninjured, whilst the Queen was exposed to calumny and insult ? Would it be urged that it was in consideration of any personal quality, or on account of any merit in private life, that the King was entitled to lie prayed for in the liturgy ? No ; he held his place in the liturgy as a member of the Royal Family, independently of any merit or desert of his own. Could any thing be imagined more unjust and unfair, or more likely to excite an invidious comparison, than to say that the name of one of the parties was fit to be inserted in the liturgy, and the other unfit; if the House began to set the example, how far would not the evil spread itself, or at what limit would it stop ? He was decidedly of opinion, that the measure would prove injurious not to the Queert alone, but the whole of the Royal Family. When the Noble Lord said, that he would do no more against her Majesty, the House understood his reason for desisting. The fact was, he could do no more— the public feeling would not allow him, ( Hear, hear !) He therefore begged the Noble Lord not to take any credit to himself for his forbearance ; he had done his utmost, and being at length reduced to abandon his designs, he now came dom for three centuries, and the Statute Law, by any ar- bitrary act. He had, on a former night, had the liberty of making some observations, as to the fact of no such proceeding as that act of the Privy Council which was then before the I louse for its consideration having taken place since the Reformation, " I say," continued Mr. W. that the present is one which relates to the past, to the present, and to the future ; it is one which requires this House to say, not whether the present Queen is to be thrown at the fe^ t of the Ministers, to be spurned, to be degraded, to be dethroned, at their pleasure, but whether the established laws of England are, or can be abrogated by any power other than by the Legislature ; and whether i any future Queen Consort is, or may become the victim I of any Privy Council. I take the liberty of declaring it 9 to be my opinion, after a full and satisfactory deliberation, Sthat the act of the I 2th of February last is grossly illegal. If the Right Honourable Gentleman thought that the i motion of the Noble Lord to- night was one of mere milk | and water, he will not have to reproach me with using j such language, for I thus openly declare that the erasure of the name of her Majesty from the Liturgy was' grossly illegal and unconstitutional, ( loud and repeated cheers.) I am not accustomed to hesitate in expressing my opini- ons, however humble my efforts may have been else- where ; neither do I now think that I ought to conceal my sentiments. To the Right Honourable Gentleman, and to the Noble Lord, I am sure, I cannot be required to He was not or. e who imbibed the ridiculous notion* of radicalism ; he knevV their objects too well not to despise them ; and although the Noble Lord and his friends might choose to- C& s t the paltry imputation op oft those who op- posed their measures, that monarchical, that anti- Radical Administration, that discard all encroachment upori pre- cedent ; that had alarmed the country with the danger of the si$> version of established custom ; v that anti- radical Administration that feel so nervous at. the least approach at Change, had, when it suited their purpose, contemptu- ously crushed beneath their feet those rights which had been recognised and acted upon for so long a period, ( loud cheers.) Upon what but custom did the prerogative of the Monarch depend; ? by what but custom did they enjoy these privileges ? what but custom protected the rights of the community ? what indeed could be named, that was possessed by any man, that was not secured by usage ? ( cheers by the opposition.) Was it for the Noble Lord and his Antl- Iladical coadjutor, after exciting an alarm at innovation, thus to set at defiance usages of three cen- turies— they might deny radicalism, and so would he, but yet. whether radicals or anti radicals, he wished men to be consistent, ( cheers on all sides of the house.) The Noble Lord had established a new Court: a new mode of evidence bad annihilated the usual forms by the intro- duction of a succession of innovations.—"( cheers from the opposition.)— From the moment that the fatal Order in Council was issued, lie found a determination to oppose every measure that should be brought forward respecting the Queen. He would not anticipate what the talents of those might be who might undertake to answer him, but he believed he knewthe arguments they would adopt. The fact was that ofthe omission ofthe Queen of Geo. I. That mo- narch, it would be recollected, ascended the throne in the year 1714. At that time the Princess of Zeli, to whom he had been married, had been a captive at Hanover a consi- derable time ; she was never known in this country as Queen Consort ; she had never had any Court, nor exer- cised any privilege. In the addresses presented by that House and by the House of Peers to that Monarch, nor indeed in any address, had she been noticed ; added to that, she had been divorced upwards of eighteen years.— George I. had contracted a bad handed marriage, as it was termed, with the Duchess of Kendall, who was entitled to the style of Queen Consort in preference to the Princess ofZell. This precedent could not therefore be received. Hehad taken the liberty of analysing thisquestion and he believed he had done it with fairness. He had shewn that that wretched, miserable, and contemptible order was not reconcilable wiih thecanon law, the moral law, nor the laws of reason, ( loud cries of hear, hear.) At an early period after the 12th of February ( when the monstrous and illegal order was issued), he conversed with wiany expe- rienced Clergymen upon the clause of the Act, and also with many Gentlemen of sound learning, whollv uncon- nected with any party, and he never yet found the opinion of any one upon it, that he had not ie.- eived an answer in unison with his own sentiments. They all considered that the words of the Act, coupled with immemorial usage, was completely at variance with the legality of the order, ( cheers from the Ministerial benches.)— Let them look at the conduct- of this Monarchical Administration.--( coii- tinued cheers ) — Might a plain man be permitted to ask a simple question without meeting the sarcastic cheers of ' those on that ( the Ministerial) side of the House ? If the Privy Council had the power of omitting the name of the make any apology, for they know too well my manner to suppose that I should be guilty of any personalities Co- wards them ; but I could, not, nor can I avoid expressing what I think, fully and boldly;—( repeated cheers.) In order to substantiate his case, it vfas necessary t6 enter | into some preliminaries. If tbe historical facts, to which he begged the attention of the House, were known to the Lawyer, as well as every Gentleman present, they would pardon him for stating them as the grounds of his judg- ment. Prior to the Reformation the Liturgy of England had been regulated by the See of Rome; but when Henry VIII. had separated himself from the Communion of the Church, the church discipline and the regulations of it had been placed under the superintendance of the same power as the civil right of the subjects of the realm. In the reign of Edward VI. the Liturgy had been established; and thus, in the successive reigns, the Church became part of the State, as the State became a part of the Church, None could deny that such was the political effect pro- duced by the Reformation. It was true that in this coun- try the reign of Queen Mary produced a fevulsiun ; but Queen, could they not also takeout that of the King ?— ( loudciies of hear, hear.)— He had read enough of tile history ofliis country to know that there were factions at Court, as well as factions among the people ( cheers.)— The Queen, who was now opposed hy the Court party, was at one time strenuously supported hy them. That fact plainly elucidated his argument, ami evinced the dan- gers that might ai- ise from such a discretionary power being intrusted to any party, hy which they might dc prive the Queen of her attributes. Hecould not compare the pro- ceedings of the Privy Council to any thing but the High Court of Commissi,!!, and the Members lie must describe as Inquisitorial Judges. The language be uttered was the conviction of his mind • and thank God, his vote was his own, and so were his principles; as be fell so would he speak, and nothing should deter him from giving utter- ance to his opinion. Could it be expected that the sequel would be just, when the proceedings were founded on such gross illegality and monstrous injustice ; evidence so de- testably obtained ? D -' throned aud cashiered in the face of England before trial, by that illegal order. Then came the consequences of that revulsion were removed in the I the Noble Lord with his threatening letter, with which the reigns of her immediate successors. In tlw^ reign of James I. the Liturgy had been established nearly in the same form as at present. In the reign of Charles I. war, civd and religious, had raged, for the contests of" that period arose from religious, as well as from civil feelings. After the accession of Charles ] I. when all parties had been eager for peace, the Act of Uniformity bad been sanctioned by the Legislature. If subsequent to the Reformation the King had been at the head of the Church, arid therefore was in possession of the right of r forward to argue their legality, ( loud cheers.) A spir t had been shewn in the cause of justice; the people had every where declared themselves in favour of the Queen, and had stood up in the cause of the injured. What other conclu- ion could be drawn from the signs which were every day and in every place manifested ? Besides, there was another reason which strongly pressed upon the house to settle this important question. Was the country, suf- fering as it did under the double weight of depression in its agricultural and commercial interests, to be utterly excluded from their debates by one single question ? He would say that the House of Commons had not partici- pated in the feeling and interests of the country at large. The House knew that the eountiy laboured under ex- traordinary difficulties, and would they suffer the whole ofthe present session to pass in a similar manner to the greater part ofthe last, because ministers now found them- selves in a situation which they had not before contemplat- ed ? How they got into that situation it was not now necessary to inquire ; but he did in his conscience believe that the Nohte Lord and his colleagues were too honour- able and too wise to advocate the abominable and foolish measures, the responsibility of which they were now com- pelled to bear. He believed, as it was generally under- stood, that in an unfortunate moment thc^ y had given a pledge, that if the Queen set foot in England they would proceed against her, thinking no doubt that there was no chance of her ever doing so. By this means they had now become responsible for conduct which they were ashamed tocantemplate. Having said so much upon the " subject, he would now venture to say that the name of her Majesty had, in the lir. st instance, been unjustly erased from the liturgy, and that the non- restoration of her name was more than unjust— it was shameful ; at least if it were not con- tended that the verdict in the other House was a real and effective judgment. He called upon the House calmly and deliberately to consider the motion which he was about to submit to them, and to take some measures to tranquil- lize that ferment which the proceedings against the Queen had created, and which if not put a stop to, he believed would end in general discord. The Honourable member then concluded, amid loud cheers, by moving " That tbe Order in Council, dated the 12th of February, under which the name of her Majestj, Caroline, Queen Con- sort of these realms, was erased from the Liturgy, ap- pears to have been ill advised and inexpedient. Mr. ELLIS said, tbe course which Mr. Canning had pursued had been dictated bv a strong and conscientious sense of the duty which he owed to that Illustrious Person w ho had so long and so unfortunately occupied the atten- tion of the House ( hear, hear.) Mr. ROBINSON said, according to the Noble Lord, those advisers bad violated the laws of the kingdom ; they t had insulted the King ; they had betrayed the Queen ; j they had fomented rebellion throughout the country, and i the Noble Lord having come forward before the House of 1 of Council, by which certain alterations were authorised to be made- in tbe form of praying for the different mem- bers of the Royal Family, and contended it contained no- thing to justify the omission of her Majesty's name. It authorised an alteration of the names, but not their omis- I sion in the prayers. The concluding words of the docu- ment to which Tie alluded were, " and all such alterations as are fitted to the occasion." Did the occasion justify the alteration— not the alteration, but the total omission of her Majesty's name? The act • of the Council was not made to add a prerogative to the Crown ; it gave no posi- tive directions a's to the prec- jse alterations; but to such as • were 4< fitted to the occasion." The only act of Parlia- ment from which they could pretend to have derived their authority was the 1.3th and 14th of Charles 11.; there- tore he presumed that that act would be considered as their authority. He wbukl undertake to say, that no ati- thoritv was given by the act which he had just mentioned. Another observation occurred to him. That act gave no more authority to pray for Geo. III. than to pray for the Queen. It might perhaps be argued on the other side that the mention of suece& Mvc Kings was not accessary;, bo Commons to make those charges, had brought forward a motion, not calculated to induce the House to have the heaviest punishment inflicted on those traitors. No. The punishment of the Noble Lord for those charges was a nothing, it was contained in a mild— a mitigated motion. If the ministers of the crown had been guiiiv of crimes, thus boldly laid to their charge, if they had ever given cause for suspicious of such accusations, he declared to God that he considered the proceeding adopted to be the worst injury which could he inflicted on the liberties of the people, ( violent cheers from the opposition. J The pro- ceeding of the Noble Loid, who thus thought himself justified in compounding the most dreadful charges, and in supposing it his duty to bring forward only a milk and water motion, ( limtl cheers from the Treasury benches.) If the Noble Lord wished to do justice to the Queen, why had he not endeavoured to do so, instead of cring- ing to the gain of a few votes ? Why else had the Noble Lord been satisfied with such a weak, such a futile con- clusion as was contained in lug motion ? Perhaps it was ecclesiastical discipline, so he had been the Head of the State. When therefore, from the necessities of the times, he had yielded a portion of his power to the other branches of the Legislature, lie surrendered as well a part of his ecclesiastical as of his civil jurisdiction. Tiie Liturgy had therefore been regulated by the Acts of Parliament in the subsequent reigns. He was far from denying that plenary power existed in the King and in the Legislature to regu- late the discipline ofthe Church ; but until they Agreed, no branch ofthe Legislature could be justified in doing what required the assent of ihc whole. During the civil wars the Liturgy had been much canvassed ; and on the restoration ofthe second Charles, its regulation, so as to ensure the reconciliation of all parties, Puritans, Conve- nanters, and all others to the established forms. The Liturgy then became part ofthe Law of the Land ; for the Act of Uniformity, having mentioned the established forms, rendered them as much a part of the Statute law as if they had been copied word for word and introduced at length into the Statute Book. The Act of Uniformity, therefore, under the Great Seal, had authorised the Litur- gy as much as if it had beeh included at length in any act of Parliament. Twenty- one copies of it had been ordered to be deposited in the Tower of London, in order to pro- cure for the public means of consulting the copies, to which they could refer in cases of difficulty or doubt. He had consulted the Act, but could not find any position of it, or any clause in it, which could sanction the Act which he had a heady pronounced illegal. The particular clause which had allowed the alteration or changingof names of those persons ofthe Royal Family for whom the Act re- quired the subjects of the Kingdom to pray, was in sub- stance as follows:—" Be it enacted, that the names of the King, Queen, and Royal Progeny be challenged and altered from time to time, and fitted to the present occa- sion, according to the directions of lawful authority."— This might authorise the alteration of the young George for Frederick, or of Anne for Elizabeth, but certainly nothing more. At the time that it passed our language was sufficiently copious to furnish words expressive of its meaning: expunge, omit, order, See. were not unknown. Was it not then strange, that . this clause, that had under- gone the revision of Parliament, of the House of Convo- cation, the revision of those eminent lawyers who had be- fore been alluded to, if they meant that it should vest dis- cretion in the King or of the Privy Council to expunge or omit, should have introduced words so opposite as those of to change and alter, as fitted the occasion ? His eyes | must be blinded before he could believe that those lawyers j by whom the Act was framed would have introduced it at | the time of the restoration, when the Throne was restored, I and the object of which was designed to place the Royal | Family in the situation they had previously held. In the. j Liturgy of the Church, the Queens of Henry the VII I. | James I. and Charles II. had been uniformly introduced, and the Liturgy of that day was precisely the same as that which had existed previous to the Reformation. It was somewhat remarkable, that in the printed copy of the Common Prayer attached to ti e Statute, that a- blank was also left . where the name of the Queen had been usually inserted, because that Monarch was not married, and therefore there was no Queen Consort. In the Col- | lect, too, for the Queen a blank was also left, as wasano- sj tlier for the title. He knew not what effect this argument | might have on the minds of others ; but to his own, it was Iseemingly conclusive, that . the names of the King, Queen, and II yal Family should be invariably inserted. . In his mind it was the object of the Act that the Liturgy should be, and he believed it was then, exactly similar to that used in the antecedent reign. The clause upon which he had been inquiring was the only one on which any discus- sion could arise. They had then before them the establish- ed usage ( with the exception of that of George the First) of a connected success'on of reigns for upwards of three centuries in all of which the name of the Queen Consort had appeared in the Liturgy ; the Queen, then, had a right founded upon iiumemerial custom and prescription. flinwtv fo flic Queen ? fiat how did tliev slatul wit") res- pect to the Queen herself. Had they not, with Lord F. rskine at their head, who was always talking of the ad- vantages of the trial by Jury, and who boasted that be had spent ( lis whole life in defence of them— bad they not, he would ask, placed her conduct under the investigation of four Commissioners without informing her of tbe exis- tence of such a trihuinj, much less of the serious charges which I ad been brought against her ? Had not that se- cret tribunal even closet? its proceedings, without ever hearing a word of defence from her unti I they brought her up to receive judgment from her King and father ? If.- ever the Queen had Cause to complain of any party vt public men, it was of that part with which she was at present politicallyconnectcd. ( hear, hear.)— His Lordship then proceeded to ask, whether those persons who had., upon mere idle rumours of occurrences abroad, deprived, a valuable member of the lioyal Family of that revenue which would have enabled him to live in bis native coun- try, were entitled to accuse Ministers of nrting with a want of delicacy to the Queen, when they had evidence of such serious charges against her ? For bis own part, lie would say, whatever might tie the present decision of the House, that under the same circumstances he would, with bis eyes open, and with the experience which he uow ha, I of the case, pursue exactly the same line of conduct.—• Gentlemen ought to recollect, that the question was one full of doubt and environed with difficulties, and of such a nature that he would frankly confess that it Iwrd caused considerable embarrassment to Government from tku handle which it trad given to the disaffected, ( hear.) — His Lordship then proceeded to state, that be felt com- passion for the state to w hich the Queen had reduced her- self ; but there were so many circumstances that render- ed her dangerous, that it became necessary to tear t. ity tbe veil from her guilt, ( hear, bear.) She had lent herself to a paity, who he believed, entertained views dangerous to tbe established institutions of both Church ami . State ; and be therefore could honour her us little in a political as he could in a moral point of view. He would cautioui Honourable Gentlemen not to be deceived by iter advo- cates, nor to be entrapped into tile support of. the present milk and water Resolution, by any rash dedication that might have been made in the country. Tile country W AS now, thank God, coming to its senses, ( hear, hear, from the opposition benches,) and the efforts of that party which bad hitherto distracted the country would soon expire, if Parliament maintained its present firm tone of determina- tion. It ought to support the existing Government < 1 undiminished lionouT aud character, or at once to ex- tinguish the present Cabinet as Ministers. If any resolu- tion were brought forward on the other side, containing charges of accusation, he trusted that it would appear JI, T a distinct, tangible, and manly shape. Ministers would then be fairly put upon their trial, aud be ( Lord Castle- reagh) pledged himself that if there were a cH.- mee of its success, it should be resisted by r » o influence of the crown, whose servants would rest thuir claim to public confidence on the reputation they had acquired duriug an arduous and glorious war, and a subsequent interval of peace, dur- ing which they had never lost an opportunity by their best exertions to promote the interests and welfare uf the empire, ( hear, hear). Mr. BROUGHAM said, that on no question tiarl more party spirit been shewn ; and while ministers, under pretence of impartiality, and with the cunning that be- longed to weakness, kept in the back ground, quietly but industriously entrapping and securing votes, they left three or four of his ( Mr. Brougham's) Noble Friends to bear the brunt and odium of the debate. In tbe outset of his speech, the Noble Lord, with a charity peculiarly hi* own, undertook to defend tbe Queen from the Noble Lord who introduced this motion and tire rest of her friends. He had maintained that her Majesty was de- graded before her trial— degraded by the confession ofher advocates. The House would know how to make allow- ance for the delicacies and difficulties with which he ( Mr. Brougham) in the instance referred to bad had to con- tend ; he was at that time as powerless to resent as to resist imputation ; and the Noble fjurd, with an ingenuity it, which few would be proud to be bis rival, well knew how to heap together a few adjectives am' minding epi- thets, and thus to comjround a sentence difficult ( if com- prehension, but, as far as it was intelligible, calculated to till the ear and to delude the mind. It was not for hi- n ( Mr. Brougham) then to say that his royal mistress was degraded ; she was on the brink of a; i investigation * here innocence was no security, wliere perjury and bribery were united to accomplish one object, where the strong aria of power, and the long purse of ministers joined their in- fluence over Italian hands and hearts, ready to crouch under the one. and greedily tosnatch at the other, ( beer.) From such a trial-— from such a threatened prosecution— the most guiltless might shrink without for a moment in- curring the imputation of crime. Iler Majesty had pre- viously made her ill fated voyage ; contrary to bis and Mr. Whithrend's earnest representations, she had left this country, aud for six years was all hut forgotten. Nuw nothing was talked of on the other side but her increas- ing and inconvenient popularity. Why was she popular? And why were the hearts of all classes interested in her behalf ? Because she w as oppressed and persecuted ; and if ministers wished to sink her into comparative oblivion, they had nothing to do hut to abstain from that persecu- tion, ( cheers.) ' lire people had witnessed a woman antj a Queen maltreated, insulted, trampled upon ; tliev had seen injuries inflicted where injuries were possible • and j insults where injuries were powerless. They left for her, | because they loved the monarchy and the persons of their Queen was met at St. Omer's, the language of which might he thus interpreted— Madam, we have degraded you in the face of Europe ; we have dethroned and cashi- ered you at home, and if you dare place your foot upon the English coast we will accomplish your ruin t and thus, by proceedings so uncongenial with the principles of our law, they had endeavoured to terrify her Majesty from com- mencing her defence. ( prodigious dicers.) Such princi' pies were unworthy and disgraceful in any civilized com- munity ; they were, in fact, unknown in any but Pagan States. That . attempt had been made, but the dignified spirit of the country had prevented its accomplish- ment. From the moment he repeated, that the order of Council was issued, he resolved to oppose it. What an absurdity was it to call the Bill of Pains and Penalties a Bill to dethrone the Queen, when, by the order itself, she had been already dethroned in all the churches in the kingdom. The principle thus acted upon was substan- tially nothing less than the erection of a new Court, where, without trial, without examination, without opportunity of making a defence, condemnation might be pronounced.— If the power was possessed thus to try the Queen, it would become also a Court for the trial of the King. • But by the law, they ought not to proceed upon ex- parte statements alone. Such were his opinions, and upon the grounds on which he argued he should support the motion of the Noble Lord.—( loud and continued cheers.) Lord CASTLEREAGH said, it was extraordinary that 12 months had elapsed, during which ministers were allowed to perpetrate a great injustice against the Queen, and at the expiration of that time nothing but ail abstract proposition was brought forward. Tbe Noble Lord had, it was perfectly true, supported the same opinion as be did now upon a former occasion; but the House then rejected it by to decisive a majority, that when the numbers were going to he taken on his amendment, he thought it better to take them on the negative of the original question, than to put his own amendment to issue. Even when the ques- tion was so decided, the numbers were in favour of the original motion 391, and against it 124, of which latter number many would not have voted for his amend- ment if he hail pressed it. If therefore, the servants of his Majesty were in the wrong, that House was their accom- plice in it: for it gave its sanction t o the principle of their proceeding, when it determined, as in July last, to ad- dress Iter Majesty—( loud cries of hear from the Ministe- rial Benches.) As to the law of the question, he thought that there was nothing so decisive in the clause so much relied on by tbe Noble Lord, as to render it imperative to insert the Queen's name in the Liturgy. The Act of Uniformity was not passed out of any jealousy of the Crown, but to prevent encroachments and alterations from being made in the prayers of tbe church, and to put down heresies and schisms injurious to tbe establishment. That clause, therefore, was inserted in the statute to show that, though no alteration could be made in the general prayers of the church, those collects and litanies which affected the Royal Family were open to alteration. The genius of our political agreed with the genius of our ecclesiastical constitution ; for so far from the constitution being jea- lous of the rights w hich the King exercises over his family, it leaves every member of it completely under the discre- tion of the King. This was the case with regard to their education and their marriage ; and it would be a most dangerous precedent if Parliament should now, for the first time in the history of the monarchy, take upon itself to interfere with the King's management of his family.— If the King, dn the exercise of his royal prerogative, should he forced to insert the name ofher Majesty in the Liturgy, ( loud cries of hear,) that would be found to be only tile first step to greater encroachments ; for he should wish to known on what principle, after such an advantage were gained for the Queen, she could be excluded from the coronation, ( hear, hear.) and all those privileges of grace and favour which, in happier times, it would have been the pride of the King to have afforded her. ( Cheers from the opposition re- echoed by the Ministerial benches.) His Lordship then proceeded to argue that the charge of prejudging the Queen, by striking her name out of the Liturgy, came with a very had grace from that party, which, when it impeached that meritorious servant of the Crown, Lord Melville, struck his name out of the list of Privy Councillors before they brought him to trial, and that, too, for no other purpose than to inflict an additional wound upon the feelings of that distinguished character. Where at that time did they display that delicacy to Lord Melville which they uow so loudly stated bad nw* been rulers with what ail historian had called with someohat of a sneer " a childish admiration of royalty." Kur i ],; - » i, c people of England coveted their Queen with the » hielcl of their protection, and had covered themselves— he would boldly say it— with immortal renown, as lovers of justice and dctesteis of tyranny, ( repeated cheers.) After advert- ting to the notice Lord Castlereagh had taken of him- self, Mr. Brougham proceeded to observe upon tiie re- luctance with which ministers, not long since, had hiea compelled to pronounce the name of Queen. In this res- pect he- bad lived to see strange things, lie had heard not only the the Right Hon. Gentleman opposite ( Mr. Vansittart) pronounce the title as glibiv and as frequency as- sums of money to be voted out of the pockets of the people ; but even the noble lord had been prevailed tipoil to treat her Majesty with the respect which became " an old courtier of the Queen's, and the Queen's old courtier.'"' ( hear.) What was still more astonishing was, that in ano- ther place, where her Majesty had so recently been upoo the trial, he had heard even the Sovereign himself pro- nounce the name of Queen. The Hon. and Learned Gentleman concluded by calling on the House to restore the Queen to all her rights, as they valued justice and tho safety of the count) y ; for if she wa s not ; re tied now as- if she had never been tried, there was no ju . tkv. no se- curity in the land. That question the Queen could never give up, and the people would never give it up, ( loud checrs.) The House then divided on Mr. Robinson's amentj- meut for an adjournment. Fuf the amendment, . - .510 Against it. _ _ . 209 Majority for the adjournment - ] oi Wednesday, Jan. 5) 1. A petition was presented from Richmond, in York- shire, praying that the Queen's name might be restored to the Liturgy. Similar petitions were presented from the city of York, the county of Durham, the Lodge of Odd F. llows of L- verkeithing, Stamford, Litchfield, Aylesbury, Sutton, Ashfield, Dundee, and a number of other places. Mr. HUME presented a petition from the Incorpo- rated Weavers of Leitb. He said, that he understood th. s petition had been forwarded to the Hon. Member for Edinburgh, who had refused to present it. He had no- doubt the Hon. Member could satisfactorily explain this circumstance. For himself, as he understood the duty of a Member of Parliament, he could conceive nothing- more culpable than the refusal of any IJon. Gentlema » to present to the House a petition, not improper in itself from his Constituents. Mr. W. DUN DAS declared, that he had not enter- tained any wish to refuse presenting the petition in ques- tion. The facts were these. The petitioners, in their application to him, required two things ; the first, that he would present their petition, the second, that he would give it all possible support. Conceiving that they were not aware that bis opinion was opposite to theirs and that it was his duty to apprise them of that fact, that if they chose they might select some Hon. Member who would willingly advocate the prayer of their petition, he had told them what his opinion was. lie had no inten- tion of refusing to present the petition, on the ground, that it did not coincide with his own sentiment?, for In- had presented a hundred petitions from the prayers of Which h « d. a'erud. He had merely returned the peti iion in loudness. not with the least vfcvfr of shutting the door of the House upon it, but because he thought him- self bound, as a man of honour, to give them the op- portunity which he had already described. The petition was brought up and read. On the ques- tion that it do lie on the table, I\ Ir. HUME begged to read the application which had been made to the Hon. Gentleman to present the petition and his answer, and then to leave the House to judge bow far the Hon. Gentleman's explanation was satis- factory. The application was, as the Right Hon. Gen- tleman had observed, twofold. The first part requested, that the Hon. Gentleman would be pleased to present the petition as early as possible; the second observed, that the Corporation would consider itself highly honoured if lie would favour the petition with his efficient support.— Such was the application. The answer was very short. It was this, " Sir, I cannot present the petition y# u have § ent me." Then came a full stop; after which the letter proceeded, '' should any proposition be made for the restoration of the Queen's name to the Liturgy, X shall certainly oppose it." And this Was the whole of the letter ( hear, hear,) The latter paragraph merely stated, that the Hon. Gentleman differed iy opinion from the petitioners, but he left it to the House to judge whether the former was not a direct and unconditional refusal topreseftt the petition. Mr. W. DUN DAS also expressed his willingness to leave it to the House to judge upon the subject; and re- peated, that his object bad been to give the petitioners an opportunity of choosing a warmer advocate. Lord MILTON confessed, that when the Hon. Member for Edinburgh made his first speech, he ( Lord Milton) thought that that Hon. Gentleman had not been dealt fairly by. In that speech he merely stated that he had informed the petitioners that he could not support their petition, and that he had explained the reasons which induced him to give them the opportunity of choos- ing another Hon. Member to present it. But then came the unfortunate letter: and that was totally at variance with the Hon. Gentleman's explanation in his speech ; for it consisted simply of a declaration that he could not pre- sent the petition, and that if a proposition should be made to restore the Queen's name to the Liturgy, he must vote against it; and contained no suggestion whatever to the petitioners that his refusal proceeded from a wish to give them the opportunity of choosing another advocate, which was tbe sense in which he had appeared to wish that the House should understand it. Mr. W. DUNDAS again explained, and begaed to know if the Noble Lord meant that he wished the House to believe what he did not himself believe to be the fact ? Lord MILTON disclaimed any such opinion. The confidence which every man had in the rectitude of his own conduct, frequently made him view it in a light dif- ferent from that in which it appeared to others. lie was far from intending to state that the Hon. Gentleman wished to lead the House to believe what he did not be- lieve himself. Tbe petition was then ordered to be printed. Lord A. HAMILTON gave notice of his intention of moving this day se'ennight, for the copies of the whole proceedings relative to a clergyman in Scotland having keen put under arrest for disobeying the order in Council, and praying for her Majesty by name. Mr. HUME gave notice, that on Friday next he would move for a copy of the appointment of Mr. Bathurst as President of the Board of Control, and of the warrant for hissalary. He also laid upon the table a petition from the Provost and Corporation of Dundee, in favour of the restoration of the Queen's rights. REFORM. Mr. WYVILL said, he held in his hand # 2 petitions from the city of York, in favour of Parliamentary Reform. These petitions were each signed by 50 persons; they pray- ed for extension of suffrage and more equal representa- tion. The Hon. Member made some comments on the vote come to by the House on Friday night.— Looking to that vote, it might be said that the House represented the Noble Lord and his colleagues, but it was a farce to call themselves the representatives of the people. Mr. HOBHOUSE wished to know from the Member for Durham, if it was his intention to renew his notice on this subject which he withdrew last session. Mr. LAMBTON said it was his indention, but he considered it could not be brought forward with advantage till the business respecting her Majesty was disposed of; and therefore he should now name the 10th of April for bringing forward that motion. Mr. GRENFELL said he had up to the present time invariably voted against all motions for Parliamentary Reform, and he had done so conscientiously, as believing that whatever might be said by theorists, still this House acted under the opinon of the people, and were controll- ed by that opinion; but after the vote come to by the House on Saturday morning last, he could no longer be- lieve that public opinion had any control over the House, and persuaded of the fact, he could not refrain from ex- pressing a hope, that before the present session had pass- ed over, some Gentleman of weight would come forward with a proposition for reform of that moderate nature which the House Hir'ht sdopt for the benefit of the coun- try. Mr. PHILLIPS urged the necessity of reform, and besought the Heuse to listen to the voice of the people. Mr. S. WORTLY maintained that the vote of Satur- day morning was the sense of the majority of the people. The real opinion of the thinking classes was, that the mat- , ter should beset at rest, and I'c Queen no longer perse cuted. ( Cheers from all sides). PROVISION FOR HER MAJESTY. Lord C A STLERE A GII, amidst the profound silence of the House, rose to move the order of the day for the House to resolve itself into a Committee, in order to take into consideration so much of his Majesty's most gracious Speech as related to the makiug of a suitable provision for the Queen. Mr. BROUGHAM rose and said, that he had re- ceived her Majesty's commands to present the following message: 4T CAROLINE R.— The Queen, having learned that the House of Commons has appointed tin's day for taking into consideration the part of the King's most gracious Speech which relates to her, deems it necessary to declare, that she is duly sensible of his Majesty's condescension in recom- mending an arrangement respecting her to the attention of Parliament. She is aware tliat this recommendation must be understood as referring to n provision for, the support of her estate and dignity ; and from what has lately passed, she is apprehensive that such a provision may be unac- companied by the possession of her rights and privileges in the ample measure wherein former Queens Consort, lier Iloyal predecessors, have been wont in time past to enjoy them. "' it is far from the Queen's inclination needlessly to throw obstacles in the way of a settlement which she desires, in common with the whole country, and which she feels Lord Casttereagh was repeatedly called to order; and Mr. Tierney. in reply to an observation of his Lordship, said, that he would never stoop to accept Or hold office on the terms upon which the Noble Lord had held it. He would never accept it on terms that, were not perfectly honourable to his feelings. " I would sooner die on a dunghill, than receive the Ring* s pay for wading through^ some wot k that I have lately seen." The question of adjournment was negatived without a division ; and the House went into a Committee. Lord Castlereagb pro- posed that a sum of L. 50,000 per annum should be grant- ed her Majesty for life. An amendment was moved by Mr. II. Sumner, that a sum of only L. 50,000 should be reduction was fo be made in the Naval Establishment.— lie would not occupy the Committee at present with any further* ebservations. He would content himself by merely submitting it to their Consideration. The lion. Baronet then moved " « tbat 22,000- seamen should be granted for his Majesty's sea service, for thirteen lunar months, from the 1st January, 1821." Mr. CREEVEY moved thatthe Chairman of the Com- mittee should report progress. He objected to granting any sum of money until the Committee were in. posses- sion of the estimates. Sir GEORGE WARRENDER stated, that no es- timates of any kind were made. He proposed nothing : it was the uniform practice for several years. allotted for this purpose. The original motion was, how ever, carried without a division. Thursday, Feb. 1. A number of Addresses were presented, praying for the restoration of the Queen's name to the Liturgy.— Ordered to be printed. SCOTS CRIMINAL LAW. Mr. KENNEDY gave notice, that in the end of Fe- bruary he would move for leave to bring in a bill to re- gulate the manner in which Juries should be chosen for the administration of the criminal law BREACH OF PRIVILEGE. Sir J. NEWPORT said, he now rose to call the at- tention of the House to a most serious breach of its pri- vileges. A breach going to affect its best privilege, free- dom of debate ; and he did it more especially, because it was Contained in an Address which had received his Majesty's sanction ; for it was an Address inserted in the London Gazette, amongst many others, headed as Ad- dresses, transmitted to Lord Viscount Sidmouth. and which his Majesty had been pleased to receive most gra- ciously. Now, he was convinced this was an Address which his Majesty could not have received graciously, nor could he ever have seen it. It was an Address coming from a Clerical Body, and charged the House of Com- mons with making and promulgating speeches calculated to spread disaffection and discontent through the land.— The Noble Lord on a former night said, none of", these Addresses were inserted in tbe Gazette, until they had received the sanction of the Secretary of State for the Home Department. Now, he would read some extracts from this Address, and ask if this was such a one as ought to have that sanction. The dutiful and loyal Address of the Presbyteiy of Langholm, in the county of Dumfries, to the King's Most Excellent Majesty. lie then read the following extracts : — 44 We have witnessed with much concern, and we strongly deprecate the spirit of disaffection lately become so prevalent, from what we would term the violent and unconstitutional speeches of the Opposition in both Houses of Parliament, and the infamous scurrility and misrepresentation of a licentious Press. 44 As teachers of religion we deplore the infidel senti- ments that are sedulously disseminated, and that have contributed more than any other cause to excite the feel- ings which have of late been but too opetdy manifested ; for it must be evident that when men renounce their al- legiance to God, they will also betray their King and country : and would not those to whom we allude rejoice to overturn the Altar, the Throne, and the Constitution, when they scoff at religion, insult their King, and bring such railing accusations against the men who, under an all- wise and overruling Providence, and supported by your Majesty, have saved their country, and in whom, we will venture to say, the good sense of the nation still confides ? • 4 With every good citizen and loyal subject, we repro- bate the Address and Petition of the Common Council of the City of London, than which a greater insult could not be offered to Majesty, and which it behoves all who wish well to tiieir King and country publicly to condemn ; nor can we refrain from reprehending severely the inso- lence of ceitain Members of the Opposition upon the late prorogation of Parliament; for if such conduct in the Representatives of the people pass unnoticed, what may be expected from the people themselves? 41 We fervently pray that Almighty God may confer on your Majesty every spiritual and temporal blessing, and that your reign over a free, a loyal, and an united people, may be long, happy, and prosperous." It was signed and transmitted by William Berry Shaw, Moderator.—( Much laughter.) The Right Hon. Baronet then handed the Gazette to the Clerk, who read the three passages marked with in- verted commas, which having been done, the Right Hon. Baronet moved— 14 That the paper entitled 1 The Dutiful and Loyal Address of the Presbytery of Langholm, in the county of Dumfries-,' published in the London Gazette, on the 2d day of January, is a direct and manifest breach of the essential privileges of this House of Parliament." Lord Castlereagh and Mr. B. Bathurst regretted that this Address had appeared in The Gazette. A selection was made of these Addresses, and perhaps care had not been been taken in this instance. The Address was cer- tainly improper ; and if the Right Hon. Baronet would frame some other motion which might meet his views, it would no doubt be agreed to. new Mr. C RE EVE Y replied that he was extremely sorry it had been the Uniform practice, but for the present, he should beg leave to deviate from that system. The peo- ple had been plunged iilto the deepest distresses, and he would not. feel he discharged his duty to his country if he gave his consent to any supply without having the esti- mates before them. Mr. Hume, Mr. Bennett, and Sir Francis Omitiany, perfectly concurred in the sentiments that had been ex- pressed. They should always support those who advocat- ed a reduction in the public expenditure. Mr. C REEVEY expressed his determination ( though it might be a new practice) to divide upon this . and every Committee of Supply in future, unless fuller information were laid before them. The gallery was then cleared for a division, and the Committee divided on Mr. Creevey's amendment. The numbers, we understood, were-— For the Amendment - - II Against it - - - - . 41 Majority, - - - 50 The Commiite afterwards divided, t? s we understood, four times; once on each of the following Resolutions : 44 For number of Men— Wear and Tear— Victualling and Ordnance." On each division the numbers were as on the amendment. On our return to the gallery the Llouse had just re- sumed, when— Mr. C REE VEY rose and said, in allusion to an ex- pression said to have been used by a Noble Duke relative to county meetings, he had on a former occasion observ- ed, that for a real farce commend him to a Committee of Supply in that House. The proceedings of this night had been a happy illustration of that observation of his.— Out of 658 Members, of which the House of Commons consisted, they had this evening only 55 present. They had had five divisions ; and in less than 20 minutes they had voted away one million nine hundred thousand pounds, without any of them knowing a single iota of the subject, except the Hon. Member who had brought it forward. They had on this account been overpowered by numbers, but fie was determined on all future oppor- tunities to take the same course, and if the people of England knew in what way their money was voted away, and did not take some measure to obtain redress, they de- served all they got. But he hoped their table would be covered with Petitions from all parts against it. Mr. Bathurst rose to make some observations ; but the Speaker having counted, and finding only 26 Members present, the House immediately adjourned. an independent state. After the whole was settled, Boli- var and Morillo had an interview, and embraced in the most friendly manner. - Moi illoj- it is said, was to proceed to Europe,, accompanied by four deputies, two from the Patriots, and two from the Royalists, to arrange matters with the Cortes.

PARIS, Jan. 27.— At three quarters of an hour past four o'clock this day, a very loud explosion was heard in the Chateau des Tuilleries. It was immediately discover- ed to have proceeded from a small barrel of gunpowder which had been placed behind a wooden box upon the lauding place of one of the staircases of the chateau. Se- veral doors and many squares of glass were broken. The Prefect de Police, the Proeureur Genera?, and the Pre- mier Advocate- General, the King's Proeureur and his Deputy repaired immediately to the spot, and began their examinations, in order to discover the authors of this daring attempt.— Moniteur. This evening, at half- past four o\ lock, as the King was engaged in his Cabinet, a loud detonation was heard at a short distance from his room, The gates of the pa- place were immediately closed. The troops got under arms, and the most minute search was made. It was found that the explosion had proceeded from beneath his Majesty's Cabinet, and above the apartments' of Madame, the windows of which were broken. The explo- sion was so loud, that it was heard at the Pont Louis X VI. Fortunately no accident has been occasioned by this occurrence, which can be only attributed to the- most detestable intentions, or to an extremely culpable negli- gence. At siz o'clock another explosion took place on the Place Lcscot, near the Louvre, but no damage was done by it.

LONDON, Feb. 3. A letter from Brighton, dated January .51, s'ny « ~- 4( The King has taken his us'ual promenade to- day on the Palace grounds, and appeared in excellent health aud spirits." Two of his Majesty Cabinet Ministers have recently favoured us with their views on Constitutional matters, the Duke of Wellington in the House of Lords, and Lord Castlereagh in the Commons ; and certainly between them they would bring-- us to a fine pass. The one de- clares himself a bitter enemy to c\\ l Secret Meetings, while the other declares County Meetings a farce. This reminds us of the man with two wives in the fable, one of whom plucked out his grey hairs, and the other the black, and between them left him bald. There cannot, we should | think, be a closer approximation to the ideal calculated to give satisfaction at Laybach. Without pretending to a j complete knowledge of all the qualities which may belong j to Meetings, we should think, that with the exception of public and private meetings, all others might be safely where their own. immediate security or essential interests are seriously endangered by the internal transactions of another State. But as they regard the assumption of such right as only to be justified by the strongest neces- sity, and to be limited and regulated thereby, they cannot admit that this right can receive a general and indiscri- minate application to all revolutionary movements with- out reference to their immediate. bearing upon some par- ticular State or States, or be made prospectively the basis of an alliance. They regard its exercise as an exception, to general principles, of" the greatest value and impor- tance, aud as one that only properly grows out of the cir- cumstances of the special case : but they at the same time consider, that exceptions Of this description never Can, without the utmost danger, be so far reduced to rule, as to be incorporated into the ordinary diplomacy of States, or int^ tlie institutes of the law of nations. As it appeats that certain of the Ministers of the three Courts have already communicated this circular dispatch to the Courts to which they are accredited, I leave it to your discretion to make a corresponding communic: itioit on thf? part of your Government,, regulating your lan- day say messages, for the Commanders no longer make use of the ordinary couriers to transmit their important dispatched. It seems that the discontented have risen in several places at once, and that they assemble under the title of Defenders of the Faith. It is said that instructions have been given to the Poli- tical Chiefs, which invest them with extraordinary powers. The National Guard of Galicia and Andalusia, who are employed in pursuing the Insurgents, murmur at being engaged in a service which belongs to the troops of the line. It is said that the Chief of Granada has sent a list of the several Officers of the army, who have desei ted with the soldiers of their companies. The men whoare at the head of these Defenders qf the Faith, consist chiefly of peasants j or mechanics, who aspire to the reputation of Mina, and the other Guerilla Chiefs, Sir John Newport assented to this proposition, and Lord Castlereagh to afford time for this, moved that the debate be adjourned till to- morrow, which was agreed to. THE REVENUE. Mr. MABEIILY, after a few observations, moved for an account of the sums applicable to the redemption of the funded. debt in 1821 ; an account of the unfunded and unredeemed debt for the same period ; the unfun- ded debt, distinguishing that provided for ; and also the amount of charge for collection and management of the Revenue since 1790. The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER saw no objection to the motion, and he trusted that they were now arrived at the period, when, for some years, there would be no necessity for a loan or new taxes. After some further discussion the motion was agreed to. PROVISION FOR THE QUEEN. Sit G. CLERK brought up the Report of the Com- mittee, granting =£ 50,000 to the King, for the separate use and maintenance of the Queen. Mr. H. SUM NE R rose to propose a smaller sum. He contended that any man who was present when Lieut. Howman was examined, could not be at any loss to form an opinion on tWe whole trial, and, therefore, he came to the conclusion that the Queen was guilty; and coup- ling her conduct with that at home, he could not consent to give her so large a sum. He should therefore submit to the House that the sum of =£ 50,000 mentioned in the Report be reduced to =£ 30,000. Mr. BROUGHAM did not oppose the amendment, because it was indifferent to the Queen whether it was =£ 50,000, =£ 20,000, or =£ 10,000, for her Majesty would have no money until her name should be restored to the Liturgy. It was impossible to hear Gentlemen, night after night, " taking part of the evidence, and coming to persuaded the best interests of all parties equally require ; conclusions of guilt against her Majesty. It would be and being anxious to avoid every thing that might create impossible that the matter could rest there. The Queen g sucti communication, to do justice, in the name of your Government, to the purity of intention, which ha? no doubt actuated these august Courts in the adoption of the course of measures which, are pursuing. The dif- ference of sentiment which prevails between them and the Court of London on this matter you may declare, can make no alteration whatever in the cordiality and harmony of the alliance on any other subject, or abate the common zeal in giving the most complete effect to all their existing engagements.

Irritation, she cautiously abstains from any observation upon the unexampled predicament in which she is placed ; but she feels it due to the House and to herself respect- fully to declare, that she perseveres in the resolution of declining any arrangement while her name continues to be excluded from the Liturgy. Brandenburgh House, January 31, 1821." [ The message was received with loud and repeated cheers.] Mr. WESTERN said, he would oppose all grants of the public money until a special inquiry was made, with a view to some reduction in the expenditure commensurate w ith the pressure and distress which bore upon all classes of the community, and until an inquiry had taken place into the conduct of Ministers. It was the duty of the House to protect the public purse; and it was the opinion of the country there should be a serious reduction in the expenditure of the State. The Noble Lord had already stated, that the Queen of England was convicted of adultery by 125 Peers, and yet became down to the House to propose a prov ision for her. But the Noble Lord could not so impose on the House. The bill of indictment had been withdrawn ; and would it not be a libel in the Nobb Lord to say, out of the House, that the Queen of Eng- land was an adulteress ? The bill of indictment had been withdrawn ; and yet the injured person was to be degra- ded, and her character libelled and destroyed, lie could- rot consent to vote a single shilling until the Queen was declared innocent. But the Noble Lord had comedown to the House to declare her guilty, and, at the same time, to propose a grant of =£ 50.000 a year to her. He thought he was justified in opposing the motion, and moved, . that the Hou? e do now adjourn. A long debate ensued, in which Lord Castlercagh, Mr. Tierney, Mr. Bathurst, Lord Folkestone, and Mr. Brougham, took part. In the course of the debate, was either guilty or not guilty ; and if this course was continued, let Gentlemen come forward and try her again, if they and the country had not had enough of it. Her Majesty was prepared to meet them. After a long debate; the gallery was cleared, but no division took place, and the original motion for =£ 50,000 was carried. Friday, Feb. 2. A great nutfibeir of petitions were presented in favour of the Queen. THE LITURGY. Mr. .10II>?

TRIESTE, Jan. 16 We hear positively from Lay- bach, and on good authority, thatthe old King of Naples has distinctly refused to enter into any of the arrangements proposed to him, avowing his determination to adhere strictly to that form of Constitution to which he has taken the oath. This unexpected firmness, of course, puts an abrupt conclusion to the deliberations, and the Congress is expected to break up immediately. As soon as the dis- position of the King of Naples was known, orders were forthwith tl- ansmitted to Milan, the head- quarters of the army, to put the troops in motion ; and all persons who have entered into engagements to supply forage, provi- sions, or other necessaries, have been called upon for the immediate fulfilment of their contracts. The Emperors are expected in less than ten days to be in this place. NAPLES, Jan. 21.— The English General Church, who, ou tlie sanguinary day of the 17th July last com- manded the Sicilian troops at Palermo, having been cited before a Council of War, in consequence of charges pre- ferred against him, has been discharged by the said Coun- cil, from all these charges. He was immediately set at liberty. The news from Sicily continues to be of the most satis- factory description. Every where order prevails, and the laws are executed with facility, especially at Palermo and Messina. BERLIN, Jan. 17.— It is said that the King, who had put offhis journey to Laybach, having received from his Allies another invitation, has promised to undertake the journey, in case his presence in person should be necesssary to the progress of the negociation. AMERICA, $ c. New York papers to the 5u ult. have been received.— Their contents are not very important. It has been dis- covered that the American revenue is not so much defici- ent as was at first stated, and the amount of the loan is re- duced to six millions of dollars. A notice has been given to resume the consideration of the bill introduced into the last Session of Congress, for authorising the President to take possession of the Floridas ; from which it would ap- pear that there was no truth in th'e report that the ratifica- tion of the treaty by Spain had arrived at Washington. From St. Thomas's the important intelligence has been received of the conclusion of an arn istice on the South American Continent between Generals Morillo and Boli- var, with a view to a final pacification. It is to hoped that this desirable end will be accomplished, and that these fine provinces will be at length freed from the miseries of in- ternal warfare, by which they have been now desolated for nearly ten years. The armistice was agreed toon the 25th November, and was ratified by Morillo on the fol- lowing day. It was concluded in the name of the govern- ment of Columbia, which is in this i$ ianuer recognised a:> allowed in any country. We know no men who have greater cause to declare themselves against both private and public meetings than Ministers ; nor would it be easy to say which have been most injurious to them. The private meetings to which, in an evil hour, they had recourse, compelled the country to disown the foul imputations which they were intended to cast on it, and to prove by public meetings that Minis- ters had completely lost its confidenca. It may be therefore laid down as a rule for the guidance of all Ministers, who, like the present, are detested by the great body of a people, that private meetings are use- less for purposes of delusion, so long as public meetings may he held. If the zeal of the placemen and sinecurists should, from the prospect of a turn out, become so un- governable as positively to require private meetings, in which to give vent to their exclusive loyalty, the condi- guagc in conformity to the principles laid down in the tion on which their utility, nay, their innocuousness de- \ present dispatch.

Chron. The Paris Papers of Sunday last, contain a few details respecting the conspiracy, which we give in another column. It turns out to. be another explosion, but to which, if we | may judge from the slight notice taken of it in the Jour- nals, . littleimportance is attached by the Government.— It is a curious fact, that of several conspiracies, all of them by the way of explosion, which have lately been dis- covered at Paris, in no one, so far as the particulars have been allowed to be discussed, have the means been adequate to any end which it might be supposed the conspirators had in view. There must either be a regular manufactory of conspiracies at Paris to suite State occasions, or else one set of bunglers have succeeded to another in the business of conspiracy in a manner the most unaccountable. We do not mean to speak lightly of any conspiracy, depend- ing for its execution upon the horrible means of sudden explosion ; but the sameness of the expedient used in some late conspiracies at Paris, and the singularity of such means being at all carried into effect in a Royal Palace, the re- sidence of the Sovereign, where guards and the police- officers must be supposed to be continually on the alert, cannot fail to strike every one as very extraordinary.— Morn. Chron. The preparations for the Coronation in Westminster Ilall are now proceeding, and rumour fixes the. month of May for this splendid spectacle. The four Indiamen, and all tlie outward- bound mer- chantmen, which contrary winds had obliged to anchor within the Isle of Wight, have proceeded on their respeet- tive voyages. The Caxton printing- office, Liverpool, was totally destroyed by fire on Tuesday last. This extensive esta- blishment was insured for =£ 3G, 000, but it is not known whether this sum will cover the actual loss. By this ca- lamity, it is stated, that nearly 100 individuals are de- prived of the means of gaining a livelihood. CIRCULAR DISPATCH TO IIIS MAJESTY'S MISSIONS at FOREIGN COURTS. Laid before both Houses of Parliament, in pursuance of an Address to his Majesty, Feb. 1821. Foreign Office, Jan. 19, 1821. SIR— I should not have felt it necessary to have made any communication to you, in the present state of the discussions begun at Troppau and transferred to taybaeh, had it not been for a circular communication which has been addressed by the Courts of Austria, Prussia, and Russia, to their several missions, and which his Majesty's Government conceive, if not adverted to, might ( however unintentionally) convey upon the subject therein alluded to, very erroneous impressions of the past, as well as of the present, sentiments of the British Government. It has become, therefore, necessary to inform you, that the King has fVlt himself obliged to decline becoming a party to the measures in question. These measures embrace two distinct objects : 1st, The establishment of certain- general principles for the regula- tion df. the future political conduct of the Allies iti the cases therein described— 2diy, The proposed mode of . dealing, under these principles, with the exi ting affairs of Naples. The system of measures proposed under the former head, if to be reciprocally acted upon, would be in direct re- pugnance to the fundamental laws of this country. But even if this decisive objection did not exist, t he British Government would nevertheless regard the principles on which these measures rest, to be such as could not be safely admitted as a system of international law. They are of opinion that their adoption wrould inevitably sanc- tion, and, in the hands of less beneficent monarchs. might hereafter lead to a much more frequent and extensive in- terference in the internal transactions of States, than they are persuaded is intended by the august par ies from whom they proceed, or can be reconcileable either with the general interest, or with the efficient authority and dignity of independent Sovereigns. They do not regard the alliance as entitled, under existing treaties, to as-- sume, in their character as Allies, any such general powers, nor do they conceive that such extraordinary powers could be assumed, in virtue of any fie'sh diploma- tic transaction among the Allied Courts, without their . either attributing to themselves a supremacy incompatible COURT OF KING'S BENCH, Feb. 5. THE QUEEN.— Mr. Brough am moved for ,1 criitit. nal information against the Rev. Richard Blacow, M. A. for. a libel published in a pamphlet at Liverpool, profes- sing to be the substance of a discourse preached at St. Mark's Church in that town, otl the 26th November lust. The reverend author admitted the publication of the pamphlet. The learned Counsel then read an extract from thd work ; which states, •• that Radicalism had one feature more disgusting than Jacobinism."—•< Tliey ( the Jaco- bins) fell doWn and worshipped the goddess of reason, but the Radicals fell down and worshipped the goddess of lust, an object of all others, the most worthy of their adoration." The libel then went on to state, that thisgodiless of lust had exhibited herself in two or three quarters of the globe, and even violated the holy sepulchre itself with her presence, to which she was carried in mock triumph astride upon an ass; that she returned to this country so bronzed and callous to shame— The I. ord Chief Justice— Ifou have read quite enough."

The Attorney General prayed judgment on Sir Francis Btirdett.— The worthy Baronet, who had been previously sent for, appeared in Court. A great number of affidavits were then put in 011 behalf of the Defendant. They will occupy the whole of this, day . in reading ; most probably a great part of Monday also. They relate, as far as they have gone, to the cir- cumstances attending the celebrated Manchester meeting It is questionable if the Court Will be able to arrive at ilia judgment in the course of the Term. From the number of Counsel who are to be heard, namely, live for the De- fendant and three for the Grown, taking the case of Major Cartwright also into the account, the pleadings are very likely to overrun the Term.

Ministers who, by abandoning the Bill of Pains and Penalties, virtually admitted the falsehood of those charges, on which they affirmed they had originally struck her Majesty's name out of the Liturgy, were bound 111 duty immediately to restore the Queen Consort to all her rights and privileges. Every measure adopted against her Majesty, on the gronnd of Ministry believing the odious charges preferred against her, should im- mediately have been abandoned by them, on their failure in establishing those charges : and such was the view every independent mail took of the sub- ject. Our Rulers, however, have not seen through the same medium ; but have, by their adherence to that weak temporising policy which marks our affairs, left us exposed to a repetition of those ungrateful discussions, discontents, and jealousies, which, for the peace of the country, ought to have been sa- of the question - regarding the restoration of the Queen's name to the Liturgy. Sir JOHN NEW- POKT brought forward a motion relative to a breach of privilege, contained in nil Address from the Pres- bytery of Langliohi). Of all the degrading and dis- gusting specimens t> f servilfc flattery and mean sub- serviency, which lias yet appeared, this stands pre- eminent, and cannot fail to attract the attention of our readers ; as it will clearly shew to what shifts Ministry were reduced, when such ti production was allowed to appear in the Gazette, as an Address which his Majesty was pleased most graciously to accept. Ministers, ashamed of this fr. il tribute of homage from this worthy Body of Reverend Poli- ticians, acknowledged the impropriety of inserting such a document in the Gazette, which, it was said, had occurred through accident. AIL insertion to this effect was directed to be engrossed in the Journals of the House, when the business dropped. Mr. J. SMITH gave notice of his intention or'. mov- ing an AdJrcss to his Majesty, praying, that he would be graciously pleased to command the inser- tion of her Majesty's name in the Liturgy, as has been customary heretofore. In the House of Lords, . the Earl of LIVERPOOL produced die promised cir- cular communication to his Majesty's Ministers at Foreign Courts, which will be found in a preceding column. This State Paper gives satisfactory ex- planation of the views of our Government, when it disclaims any participation in the measures pur- sued by the Allies against Naples ; aud savs, that the system proposed by the Conns of Austria, Prussia, and Russia, for the regulation of the po- litical conduct of the Allies, " if to be acted upon reciprocally, would be in direct repugnance to the lundamcntal laws of this country." But the lan- guage of Ministers does not accord with this approxi- mation to a more liberal system, when, in conclu- sion, they say, that other European States, and Austria in particular, may be dilfcreutly circum- stanced, and therefore, " that it was not their pur- pose to prejudge the question as it might affect them, or to interfere with the course such Slates might think fit to adopt." This, taken with the declara- tion, that " the British Government at the very ear- liest moment expressed their strong disapprobation of the mode and circumstances of the Neapolitan lie- volution," shews a very different feeling of charity and respect for the Anstrians, but of prompt sum- mary decision against the Neapolitans, as to their views and intentions. to refute the calumnies against the latter, so widely circulated by his enemies in Europe : General BOLIVAR receiving him in the most affectionate manner, while he expressed his esteem for his character, and gratitude for his meritorious ser- vices. MOMLI. G, it is said, was to proceed to Europe, accompanied by four Deputies, two from the Patriots and two from the Royalists, to ar- range matters with the Cortes. Should the renewal of hostilities unhappily lie determined on, forty days notice are to be given previously to either party; while it is also stipulated, in that Case,, tliat in future the contest shall be carried on according to the principles of civilized warfare. During the armistice, Maracaibo and Carthagena are declared free ports. We trust the war thus happily suspend- ed shall never again be renewed ; and that, as these colonics have, by their long and arduous contest for attaining their independence, manifested their determination to be free, the Mother Country shall not endeavour to control a people conscious now of their own importance, and whose zeal in. the cause of liberty affords no prospect of a successful conclusion of protracted hostilities, in any farther attempt to defeat their object. The distance from the Parent Government, from which these colo- nists have shewn their fixed resolution of being dis- united, and this strengthened by the absence of those feelings and interests which formed the bond of union between them, clearly evinces, that they will never again become the voluntary subjects of Spain, and that all endeavours to subject them should be abandoned. Whether the possession of such extensive and distant dependencies are pro- ductive of benefit to the remote countries, by which they are governed, is very questionable.— The general experience of nations proves, that when colonies, from whatever cause, become im- patient of farther submission to the" Parent State, all idea of forcing, any obedience, not springing from voluntary allegiance, should be dropped The people, who have displayed so noble a spirit of of independence, it is to be hoped, may prove worthy of it, bv shewing that intelligence and wis- dom necessary for framing a new Government, such as to relieve them from the hardships and difficulties to which they may be exposed by intestine divisions. By thus establishing it on a firm and solid basis, they may heal all their differences, so that it may prove a happy bond of harmony ;, i; d union, suikd to their situation aud ciicun. stances. to tie in distress, spied me fin the wrcctc. They could r. Oi get out a boat, but hove a rope to me, of which I got hold ; but so very weak was I become, that I could not tie, or get the rope round me. but I took it in my mouth and hands, and was bawled on board, where my clothes were cbabged for Warm blankets. This was about live o'clock, when I hod been seven hours in distress., and night coming on. They brought me to Aberdeen bay, where thc- y put me on the vessel William & Henry. Allan, who sent trie ashore iti his own boat." Besides the son of this man, who lias a wife and five children, there Were lost, a father and his son ; the father I leaving a widow and five children, none of whom arenblti to go to sea, aud some of them are very young. One soil of a father, agedat. il weak; who has a wife advanced irt life, twocbihlrcn, and a grandson, all depending on him that is lost ; and a son of one who has a wife and six children, himself going to sta. Subscriptions have been entered into for their relief. It is melancholy to think, that several Fishing Boats were at no great distance, without observing the accident; and the crew of one boat, it is said, saw the sail of thei unfortunate boat disappear, without apprehending thai any- thing serious had" happened, a circumstance which must be deeply regretted ; and, we trust, will prevent any similar neglect in future : as it must fully point out" the ufcee- sity of going in any such doubtful case, to the spot where assistance may be useful or required. The greatest credit is due to Cap'. MrrcHittr.. of the sloop Aid of this place, and to Capt. IIuMKof the Sunderland brig, the vessels above alluded to, as to their humane exertions the survivor, undet Providence,' owes hi preservation. We are happy to observe, that Mr. COKBYN, pith the. most laudable attention to tlie relief of the still'ereis by this calamity, has fixed Wednesday first, the 14tll curt, '" or Dre- ss Practising, the proceed, of which are to be ilppiied furtheir relief; and v.' e dotibt notihepub'lic will, withihiir wonted benevolence, patronise the occasion which now presents itse f, of administering to the wants of these poor people, in this trying period of their affliction.

Whether Parliament is to entra^ e us in a fruitless contest o o during their sittings, and thus allow another Ses- sion to pass without any legislative measure for re- lief of our pressing necessities, is a question which to the public will naturally be suggested, by what has now taken place, but cannot at this stage be answered On the 31st ult. the two Houses of Parliament met pursuant to adjournment. The House of Commons, after being for some hours occupied iu receiving petitions relative to the Queen, on the motion of Lord CASTLEU EAGII, proceeded to the order of the day for taking into considera- j tion so much of the King's speech as related to her j c Majesty's pecuniary establishment. Mr. BROUG- ' " I IIA. M immediately presented a Message from the Queen, expressive of her resolution not to accede to any arrangement, until her name shall be restor- ed to the Liturgy. The House having resolved it- self into a Committee, Lord CASTI. EREAGH pro- posed that £. 30.000 a- year should be granted to her Majesty, whieh was opposed by an uniform sup- jmrter of Ministry, Mr. HOLME^ SOMNER, who moved as an amendment £ 30,000, which, alter an animated discussion, was negatived without a division. Her Majesty's Message cannot fail to make a deep, impression on a nation which has so warmly sympathized in her wrongs ; and on this oc- casion, the magnanimous spirit Vhe has displayed will bo duly appretiated by a people, on whose love of justice aud hatred of oppression she must There are no very recent accounts from Lay bach ; but contradictory reports are given as to the proba- ble result of the conferences, which, it is now said, are to be removed from Laybach to Gorice. In the mean time, the Sicilians do not appear to unite with the Neapolitans ill adopting the new Constitu- tion. Four deputies elected at Palermo have re- fused to proceed to take their seats in Parliament, in which a great uproar took place oil this being an- nounced, but no resolution on the subject was finally adopted. The city of Paris has for some days. been kept in a state of alarm from explosions of gunpowder, in some instances indicating a conspiracy against the Royal Family of France ; while, in others, the object cannot be ascertained, from the seemingly inadequate means to produce anv great catastrophe. The first occasion of alarm was on Saturday, the 27th ult. in the afternoon, when a small cask of gunpowder exploded in the Thuilleries, under the room where his Majesty was engaged in business, and immediately above the apartments of Madame, the Duchess of BERRI ; but no trace of the incen- diary could be discovered. The Duke d'ANCOU- On Friday evening the 2d inst. a Boat, with feiir mum went oil' from Peterhead to a vessel which had ishcwo a light ; but it came to blow- afterwards, and the - vessel- did not reach the harbour, nor has the boat been , since beard of, by . the last accounts from that place.

Daring Robbery.—' On the night Between Sunday asd Monday last, a Gentleman's hmAe in O+ d, Aberdeen was broke into, and a very considerable value of Property, in Plate. & c. carried oil'. Mv- aus are taken, to detect the depredator-, which, we trust, will be successful. We again caution the public lokeeip fast doors: a verydarin-' set of culprits are at present prowling about in this neigh- bourhood. watching every opportunity t « , commit mischief. We are glad to observe, that the Commissioners of Police, lor this City, have so readily agreed to depart from the Sixpence per Pound < » f Watch Tax, imposed iu June, 1818, and thereby removed. the least ground lor excuse, in those who suffer their Police and Watch Taxes to fall into arcear. The notice of an objection to this Tax was first brought into the view of the Commissioners at the General Meet- ing for the Election, in July last, when a Committee was- appointed to meet with, and explain, to the Board, the grounds upon which the objections to. that ta* were foun- ded, and endeavour to make such an m. r « » gemeut as might prove satisfactory to the Public.. We have the authority of the Commissioners to state,, that several Meetings, and various communications, pass- ed between that Committee and lire Board, at different periods since its appointment ^ and that the Board, at their Mceti ng of the l5tli ultimo, resolved to auihori2e their Collector to return the Tax- in dispute, to all those who had paid it. All further discussion of the subject w as therefore rendered unnecessary, and ihe matter ter- minated to the mutual satisfaction of the parties. LEME was exposed to a similar danger, when, on the Thursday following, as he passed along the street of the Palais Royal, a petard exploded close to his carriage. The latest Paris papers announce three more explosions, two of them in the streets, and the third in the Treasury, whew a box capable of containing about two pounds of gunpowder explod- ed, damaged several doors, and broke a number of panes. While these alarming and dangerous breaches of- the peacei. go on from dav to day, by which the lives ot individuals may be lost, whether the obnoxious victim aimed at or otherwise, an in- quiry hitherto altogether fruitless has been going on, but no discovery of those concerned, even in the explosion in the Thuiiieries itself, has been made. On the contrary, as if in derision or mockery of the investigation, this daring species of outrage is con- tinued ; a melancholy proof of the inefficient state of the hitherto highly celebrated police of France, and of Paris in particular. Important intelligence lms been received from St. Thomas's, of an armistice being concluded in South America, between Generals MOIULLO and BoLIVAR. This amicable arrangement was made on the 25th November, and ratified next dav by General MORILLO, with a view to the conclusion of a permanent peace. Such an event is highly desirable, so that this fine country may be freed from all the calamities attendant on the internal warfare, by which for the long period of ten years it has been desolated. The armistice was concluded tn the name of the Government of Columbia, tile independence of which is thus recognised. BOLI- VAR and Mo ft I LLO afterwards bad an interview, and embraced each other in the most friendly man- ner. It may not Le improper to mentijn, that, a Sir We understand a SERMON, is to be preached in the West Church, on Sunday evening the 18th, by the' Rev. Dr. LEE. from St. Andrews, in aid of the Female Society for the Relief of Ageih and Indigent Women. As the usefulness of this Institution has been long proved, and the objects, of its relief are known tobe of the most helpless kind, having, from advanced age, outlived their friends; secluded from the eye of public charity, and living in neglect and poverty : It is hoped that tl/ e generous friends who have liitherta. come foiward tu assist, will, on this occasion, continue their benevolence, that the Mem- bers of the Society may still have it in their power to sup- ply the wants of so numerous a class of Widows and Aged Females.

MELANCHOLY ACCIDENT. On Saturday last, the Sd inst. by a strong gale from the south- west, one of the fishing- boats of Torry was lost, on her return from the fishing- ground. The following is the account, which tile only survivor of a crew of six men. William Wel- ster, gives of the disaster i " About ten o'i lock forenoon, when nearly a mile and a half from land, a heavy swell of sea capsized our boat, and washed us out. We all got on her bottom, and were togetherfor three quartets of an hour. Then anothersea separated us, and some got hold of oars, but four of us soon sunk iu the ocean. I and my son got again on the bottom of the boat, where I held fast, and kept him, who' was fainting, for nearly two hours. At this time, my dear sun was washed offi notwithstanding all the help 1 could give him ; and I. w ith the wreck, was carried by the current four or five miles southward. Now, by Pro- vidence, there came a sloop past, the sight of which re- vived me, and she made for me. but, being to the leeward, she could not reach me. She, however, put out a dag of distress, to a brig which appeared ; and the people in her, as they came towards the jioop, which ihey thought POSTS CN ! P T.
