Notwithstanding the principles which several distin- guished Philosophers have ascertained as effectual for correcting the nuisance of Smoke in Dwelling Houses, vet, in practice, these principles are so entirely disregard- ed, that this fl- il is very frequently to be suffered ; and it is generally believed, in this country, that its removal, by all the known operations, is quite contingent. I have, however, to certify, that the above- named GEO. SILVER discovered the cause of the Smoke, which I am persuadeS none of the Philosophers who have attend- ed to this object could have done ; and that he, therefore, adapted measures, upon those principles, which have en- tirely removed the nuisance ; and I have t^ ason to believe, that'he can, * in general, apply these principle*, w as the removal oi' ilie Smoke will not be contingent. And wher- ever this nuisance js complained pf, I would recommend them to apply to you for a remedy : and, with best wishes for your continued success in this, and in all other good things, 1 am.

PURSUANT to Requisition, a number of the Bur- gesses Und other Inhabitants of the Itoyal Burgh of In- verury, assembled iii the Town Hall, to vote a loyal and liutnble Address of Congratulation to her Majesty the Queen, on the failure of the Bill of Pain's and Penalties* Mr. CHARLES DAVIDSON being called to the Chair, the following Address was read and unanimously ap- proved of, and agreed to be transmitted to Mr. HUME for presentation* To her most gracious Majesty, CAROUNE, Queen Consort of Great Britain and Ireland. May it please your Majesty, WE. your Majesty's most faithful and loyal subjects, { he Burgesses and other Inhabitants of the Royal Burgh of Inverury, humbly beg leaVe to approach your Ma- jesty with our heartfelt congratulations on your Majesty's acquittal. We Viewed your Majesty's magnanimity with tin mingled admiration, in returning from the Continent ' to the United Kingdom to claim your legal rights, where your Majesty experienced such a long series of merciless and unmerited persecutions*— especially, when the only object of your Majesty's maternal affections, your dutiful and dearly beloved child, was removed by the untimely hand of death, and in the face of such a formidable fac- tion as was arrayed against your Majesty, to arraign, de- grade, and ruin a forlorn, innocent, and Royal Lady, and endanger the internal tranquillity of Britain by such disgraceful and unconstitutional proceedings. And while the process was pending, we beheld, with enthusiastic astonishment, your Majesty's surprising fortitude, in listening to the groundless and gross insinuations uttered in the Honourable House of Peers, against your Ma- jesty, by ungrateful, unprincipled, perjured mean mer- cenaries, suborned and prompted by the base promoters pf a black conspiracy. We now congratulate your Ma- jesty with the greatest joy, on the abortion of the Bill of Pains and Penalties, and the death blow that indignant heaven and your own innocence have dealt to your ad- versaries' diabolical designs. And we conclude with wishing your Majesty long life, health, and happiness, to reign over a free and prosperous people, and that the infamous tongue of slander may henceforth cease in Calumniating the character of Queen CAROLINE; and that such plear convincing proofs of your innocence may appear to the world, as to reconcile all parties to grant you the honour due to your Royal rank, is the prayer of ( t'ne loyal inhabitants of this town, ( which is diminutive in size, and situated in a remote and obscure corner of your Majesty's imperial dominions,) whose original resi- denters rendered aid to the renowned King ROIJKRT BRUCE in his adversity, recently returned from exile, to assert his rights; by whose example we have been ani- mated to range ourselves upon your Royal side, and raise our voice against your enemies, and openly an- nounce our abhorrence of any attempt against our laws and liberties by designing innovators. On the 29th ult. the Preses had the honour of receiv- ing the following Note from Mr. HU, ME, accompanied by her Majesty's most gracious Answer to the said Ad- dress. " The Address from Inverury was this day, the 22d of January, 1821, presented to her Majesty the Queen, at - Brandenburgh House, by me: and the following is her most gracious Answer. 44 JOSEPH IIUME." I gratefully accept this loyal and affectionate Address from the Burgesses and other Inhabitants of the Royal Burgh of Inverury. My enemies had no moral concern either about my guilt or my innocence, their sole object was to deprive me of my lawful rights; and to procure my degradation, without the smallest repugnance with respect to the mean* which they employed for the expedience to which they hud recourse. Hence they made use of perjury, frith as rrrtieh promptitude as if it w*= re truth ; and they Suborned witnesses to destroy innocence, with as little Compunction as honest men would bring forward honest evidence in support of virtue and of truth. All the char- acteristic features of that conspiracy, from which I have been happily rescued, exhibited malignity in its most distorted forms, and iniquity in its darkest shades.— The annals of Italy, where human beings have long traf- ficed in perjury and assassination, may produce instances in which every moral tie has been as shamefully violated, but the darkest pages of English history will in vain he ransacked for the example of similar infamy and turpi- tude. I have much pleasure in reflecting, that in the kind sympathy which this Address breathes, and in the generous sentiments by which it is animated, I recognize the descendants of those high spirited inhabitants of In- verury, whose hospitality relieved the gallant ROBERT BRUCE in his fallen fortunes, and whose valour assisted him in the overthrow of his enemies. 4thv To William Murray, servant to Mr. Scott, tokies- hill, £\ 5th, To John Pirie. servant to Mr. Bruce, Mill- hill, £ h 6th, To William Dickie, servant to Mr. Scott, Yokies- hill, 17s- 6d. 7th, To William Daniel, servant to John Hutchison, Esq. of Cairngall, l4s. 6d. 8th, To John Milne, servant to Scott, Yokieshill, 12s. 6di 9th, To George Addie, servant to James Ferguson, Esq. of Kinmuudy, 8s. 6d. 10th, To Alex.

On the 15th ult. James Connor, an Irish vagrant, was, upon complaint of the Procurator Fiscal, sentenced by the Sitting Magistrate, to banishment from this City and Liberties for life. On the 27th ult. William Milne, for returning, from banishment, was sentenced to six months' confinement and hard labour in Bridewell, in terms of the certification contained in his former sentence, and at the expiration of his imprisonment, to be of new banished. And upon the 29th ultimo, William Davidson and Robert Watt, who were both lately banished from the City and Liberties, were sentenced, by t' » e Sitting Magistrate, to confinement and hard labour in Bridewell, for six months each. A Collection was made lately in the Parish of Brechin, for the benefit of the Aberdeen Infirmary, amounting to Fourteen Pounds sterling, of which sum L. 10 15s. were collected in the Established Church, and L. 5 5s. in Mr. Gray's Meeting- house.

Urs of Ids motion, he should fee enabled to say what he j could agree to, and what he must oppose. He should have, however, an opportunity, on the motions being brought forward by the Noble Earl, of entering into such explanation upon the subject as he might deem advisable. As to the Copy of the circular published in Newspapers it was substantially correct. Lord HOLLAND said he had alluded, on a former evening, to a secret article in the Treaty between Austria and Naples, in June 1815, and he wished now to know whether that secret article was, at the time alluded to, or subsequently, communicated to this Government.. The Earl of LIVERPOOL said, that we were no parties to that Treaty, and he was not aware whether the ai- ticle had been communicated or not at the time allud- ed to. Lord HOLLAND observed, he was perfectly aware that we were no parties to that Treaty ; all he wanted to know was, whether the secret article had been communi- cated to this Government or not? The Eail of LIVERPOOL said, he could not take upon him to state whether the article was communicated to this Government at the period alluded to, but certainly it had been subsequently. The Iter I G RE Y said, he would communicate the par- ticulars of his motion, as requested, to the Noble Earl, in the interval between this and Monday. He observed, that in the document on the table there was a reference to in- structions sent to the British Minister at Naples, with re- ference to the late events there, would there be any objec- tion to communicate a copy or extracts of those instruc- tions ? The Earl of LIVERPOOL said, he could not agree to the production of the instructions. To the EDITOR of the. ABERDEEN CHRONICLE. MR. EI> ITCR, AS your paper has often been of service to the public, by pointing out to those concerned many real and dan- gerous obstacles of nuisances in and near this city, t beg you to point out another, which seems careless, dangerous, and cruel. I mean, that disgrace to the very name of Bridge, which connects St. Andrew's Street with the Lochside. It is built of such flimsy materials, that one would be led, at first sight, to suspect they had been rob- bing some of the church- yards of old covins, to make boards for its pathway ; and from a scarcity of which, or of other cheap substitutes, the proprietors, I suppesv could not afford to mend what they may have considered " only a trifling hole," made by the removal of only two adjoining boards, either by accident or design. However, in this bridge, or rather Man Trap, I was caught by the leg and thigh, the other night— and very nearly broke one or both. I assure you, that I was by no means 44 top heavy," and was only returning home from viewing the beautiful Panorama of the Siege of Algiers. But sobriety was no prevention against the accident, and the lamp at the corner of St. Andrew's Street, served as a 44 Will of the Wisp," by throwing my dark shadow before fire. My leg, foot, and left arm, were severely hurt, ivhich reduced me to a helpless and almost insensible state. 1 could only warn two men, I heard approaching, in time to prevent them from perhaps sharing the danger, which has been of very serious consequences to me, being confined ever since, under excruciating torment, from this accident, caused by what I conceive to be 44 the most abominably Cruet neglect." One of the men hap- pened to be a neighbour, who ( with the other) kindly as- sisted me from my self helpless situation, and to whose humane assistance, 1 was* enabled to reach my home. This has catreed the following considerations, viz. tem- porary Bridges across the Loch may be very well allow- ed for the accommodation of private families, because they will take care of their not becoming dangerous to them- selves or otlie/ s. But no Bridges ought to be allowed across it, which are intended for " general thorough BIRTHS. At Baberton House, on the 28th inst. the Lady of Archd. Christie, Esq. of a son and heir.

Earl GREY presented a petition from the town of Birmingham, complaining of great commercial distress.— His Lordship alluded, at considerable length, to the difficulties felt in that commercial town, and stated that it had been ascertained that the consumption of meat and bread was there reduced one- third. He felt considerable doubt of the boasted prosperity of the country, when he saw the distress ( and particularly agricultural) so generally prevailing. He put it to their Lordships, whether the farmers, with coi n at the price of 54s. or 55s. con id answer the pecuniary demands upon the in. The real cause of the distress was heavy taxation. His Lordship would not now move for a Committee of inquiry, because indis. position would prevent his attending it. The Earl of LIVERPOOL observed, that the word- ing of the speech of his Majesty was peculiarly guarded on the subject. He was aware that distress was felt in some place*;, and particularly at Birmingham. He knew, however, that the demands in the port of Liverpool were considerably increased. As to agricultural distress, many causes operated upon it, and one cause was the great in- crease of production. No corn had for two years been brought into this country from foreign ports. He, sug- gested the expediency of referring the petition to the Com- mittee on foreign trade. The Marquis of L ANSDOWNE was happy in believ- ing that commercial distress did not every where prevail. fares" « itho « laying « he applicants for the same uncfer j He tlu. ught that the true cause of ag. icultural distress was the obligation of building them with substantial materials, and to be severely responsible for any criminal neglect in not keeping them in proper repair : also, that the Com- missioners of Police should cause those under them to examine and report the same. I doubt not, but many have been hurt in the same way, although too timid or modest to tell you. With me it is otherwise, and ever shall be, ( although no scholar) while I remain, YOUF most obedient, but not very humble servant, TRITON DREADNOUGHT. Aberdeen, Feb. 1, 182L P.

On Tuesday the 30th ult. the Competition for the Pre" mi urns- given by the Aberdeenshire Agricultural Associa- tion, for the encouragement of Ploughing in the Deer District, was held- in a field on DowniehMls, Old Deer, when 47 Ploughs started. After completing their tasks, the Premiums were adjudged as follows : 1st, To James Dalgardno, servant to Mr. Paton, Green- hill, £ 2 5s. 2d, To James Walker, servant to Mr. Bruce, Mill- hill £\ 15s. 3.1, To John Davidson, servant to John Hutchison, Esq, of Cairngail, £ 1, 8s. not the increase of production, but the decrease of con sumption. If the Monarchs now about to meet at Trop- pau, were to consider the commercial interest of nations, it would tend much more to the preservation of tranquillity in Europe than any other scheme they might have in view. Lord CALTIIORPE afterwards shortly spoke, and the House adjourned. Thursday, Feb. 8. CIRCULAR OF THE ALLIED POWES. The Earl GREY adverted to the Paper which had been laid upon the Table, and which had been sent by this Government to our Missions at Foreign Courts, as an an- swer to the Circular of the Allied Powers, observing that it was not. to his mind pi rfectly satisfactory : he wished to have further information upon the subject, for which it was his intention to move on Monday. He particularly wished to know the date at which the Circular of the Al- lies became known to his Majesty's Government, and the time when a negative upon the assumption contained in that Circular was communicated by this Government to the Allied Powers. As the Circular itself could not be laid before Parliament on account of its not having been officially communicated to the Government, it would be desirable to know whether the copy which had been pub- lished in the newspapers- was sufficiently accurate as to substance to be referred to in debate. The Earl of LIVERPOOL could not say, at the pre- sent moment, how far it might be expedient for him to object to the production of the information to be moved for by the Noble Earl, but if the Noble Earl would, in the meantime,, communicate to him privately iheparticu- any nation in " Europe, ( fcekr; " hear.; tie must apologise to the House for having troubled them at such length.— Of this he ctiuhl assure them, that Warmly as he was at- tached to his friends around him, and great as was the deference which he was accustomed to pay to their judg- ment, if his motion were to prove successful; if they were to Come into power to- morrow, and if they were to at- tempt to remain in power, without endeavouring to do Something which should put the principle of Reform infco action, lie for one would cease to support them—( hear.) \ I To the people it was a matter of indifference in what j hands the Government was placed, provided the freedom j and happiness of the country at home, and its honour and j character abroad were duly consulted, and'provided that a i spirit of conciliation towards those who were at present j justly discontented, and a spirit of justice towards her who • was now unjuS'ly persecuted, were openly and uuerjuivo- I C. tlly manifested.—( hear, hear). If a disloyal and dis- > affected disposition did actually prevail in the country, to \ whom was it attributable ? When had it commenced ? — j Who did not recollect with what patience, and even J cheerfulness the people of England had long borne the [ oppressive burden imposed upon them ? Their conduct 1 in the circumstances in which they had been placed, could I never be sufficiently admired. Their temper and for- j bearance, under their various difficulties, could be sur- ; passed only by the generosity which had stimulated them j to step forward with one accord in the protection of a de- ' fenceless woman, ( hear, hear, hear ) Tbe Noble Lord j had announced his intention of meeting the motion with a ' direct negative. The eyes of the whole nation were at , ih it moment fixed upon the House of Commons. Justice j was loudly demanded from them ; and if they wished to j preserve even a remnant of character, they would not he- < sitate to grant it, ( hear, hear). The Noble Marquis con- j eluded an able and animated speech by thanking the { House for the indulgence with which they had listened to < him, and moving, That it. appears to this House that his Majesty's Ministers, in advising the measure which f led to the late proceedings against her Majesty, were 1 not justified by any considerations of political expediency ; i and that their conduct has been productive of consequences ' j derogatory from the dignity of the Crown, and injurious Si to the bets interests of the country." I Mr. LAMBTON seconded the motion. Mr. Bathurst spoke against the motion, and Mr. Whit- • more in support of it. J Mr. BANKES said, it must be with a feeling of dis- f gust, and almost with a degree of shame, that the House and the country found themselves occupied by the sub- | ject of that debate, at a time when so much important jj business remained upon their hands, and called for their most serious consideration. There was the whole system of domestic policy; the weight of debt— the disastrous pressure upon our most material sources of national pro- sperity, and most particularly upon the agricultural in- terests— the troubled state of the south of Europe, and the alarming symptoms which it held out; when these \ things were passing within and without the country, it \ was with disgust and shame that the House must, find it- t self occupied by the discussion then before it- But when ! they were at last, as he trusted, coming to spine defini- tive conclusion upon the question, he must, in a few mo- ments, state his reasons for the vote which he intended to give. The Honourable Members who had moved and seconded the resolutions had fairly avowed their purpose to be an accusation against his Majesty's Ministers, not merely brought forward as a theoretical subject, but as a practical and substantial motion, which, if carried, could lead to no other result than their dismissal from his Ma- jesty's service—( hear.) With regard to this point, he did protest that, after the best consideration he had been able to give to the subject, and not being satisfied with the transaction as it stood—( hear, hear)— being contented neither with the beginning, the continuation, nor the end of that transaction—( hear)— he must yet, injustice to the Honourable Gentleman opposite, declare, that he thought it extremely difficult for any body to say what would have been the wiser course to pursue.. It appeared to him ( Mr. Baukes) that Ministers did all in their power to avert the evil of her Majesty's coming to this country. And he would ask the House if the greatest evils had not been the consequence of her coming to it?—( hear.)— The Hon. and Learned Gentleman to whom he had before alluded was Commissioned to make the proposition, and was said to have it in writing. But they were told that this Commissioner, when he met her Majesty coming to England—- that this Ambassador never delivered his cre- dentials—( Cheers.) — Upon a subsequent occasion in that House, he knew not for what reason ( whether it might be that something pressing upon the Honourable and Learn- ed Gentleman s mind prevented him) but for some reason or other, lie said that he could not explain his con- duct then, but should have an opportunity of doing so hereafter. If he ( Mr. Bankes) might take the liberty of putting him in mind of that declaration, perhaps the mo- ment was now come when that opportunity was afforded. —( Loud cheering.)— And more particularly if, as be had understood, the Honourable and Learned Gentleman had not presented the written proposition which had been pla- ced in his hands, but called upon his noble companion, upon that occasion, to make a communication to her Ma- jesty not reduced to writing, and consequently less authen- tic. In compliance with the directions of a. large majority of that House, he ( Mr. Bankes) in conjunction with two Honourable Friends of his. had afterwards submitted cer- tain arrangements to her Majesty, which had been as un- expectedly rejected as those previously made by Ministers. Under all the circumstances of the case, there appeared ample reason to conclude that his Majesty's Ministers, in making that proposition, acted under the presumption that they were following the course most congenial to her Ma- jesty's wishes. It' blame was to be attached, he believed that it mu « t be divided, and he was not sure that Mini- sters deserved to bear a part, In the present state of parties, it is perfectly plain to every one,*' ( said the Ho- nourable Baronet, pointing to the two sides of the House,) " that if yon exclude that party, you raise this." If the present Miris't r; went out, those who sat on his side ( the Opposition) must form their successors; and he was wil- ling to do every justice to the talents of the Honourable Gentlemen, which he considered as perfectly competent to conduct the affairs of the State. One of those gentlemen ( Mr. Tierhey) had candidly and honestly expressed him- self a candidate for power. And he ( Mr. Bankes) wished that every public man would act as openly as he had done in that respect. It was a sensiment highly honourable, for he was not one of those who encouraged the vile slanders which were attached to placemen upon all occasions. He would now advert to what fell from the last speaker, with respect to the desperate faction which existed in this coun- try. but which he hopcc} had not extended itself far into that House. He must say, however, that the Honour- able Gen'leman of whom he had been speaking had of late given that faction too much countenance. He did not believe that any principle of union existed between them ; hut there was an evident sy stem of co- operation which had HOUSE OF COMMONS. Monday, Feb. 5. A number of petitions were presented in favour of the Queen. Mr. JAMES gpve notice of a motion for the 19th itist. relative to the employment at CarlisJe of the mili- tary force during the last election. Mr. H. G. BENNET gave notice for Wednesday, of the number of informations filed by the present Attorney- General for blasphemy and sedition. Lord J. RUSSELL moved the second reading of the Grampound disfranchisement bill. The Noble Lord ob- served, that the discussion would be taken in the next stage. Committee on Monday. AGRICULTURAL I) IS T R E S S. Mr. GOOCH begged to ask the Noble Lord a ques- tion on a subject of the most vital importance. It was connected with agricultural distress, which had increased during the last year—( hear.) He wished to know whether the Noble Lord intended to move for a Committee ; if not, he hoped that some other member would bring for- waul the subject. Lord CASTLE RE AG II admitted the extreme in- . terest and high importance of this subject. On a former ^ d. iy he had stated that Ministers had no measure to re- commend : the events of the last year shewed that the evils did notarise from the defective state of the laws re- garding grain ; and, though he could not charge himself with the task of proposing an inquiry, he should not offer any obstacle, and Ministers should give all possible as- sistance to the investigation. In t' 10 first instance, how- ever. he should feel it his duty to guard himself on the subject, especially as to the great points, that no measure ought to be adopted that would affect the public credit or revenue; nod, secondly, that no change^ should be made in the existing circulation, settled by Parliament after the most mature deliberation. He could not easily see his way through such an inquiry, Mr. GOOCH gave notice, that, on a future day, he would move for the appointment of a Committee. QUEEN— CENSURE ON MINISTERS. The Marquis of TAVISTOCK said, he rose in pur- suance of his notice, and of the wishes of many of his friends, to move a Resolution expressive of the sense of that Ilou . e, on the measures which- had lately emanated from his Majesty's Government. In the course of the proceedings which had taken place in the other House of Parliament, the country had seen most. extraordinary and disgusting things. It had seen the public accusers of the Queen of England sitting in judgment upon her ; it had seen those who had already stigmatised her as a criminal, sitting as Judges and Jurors in her cause ; it had seen those who were deeply interested in her conviction, exert- ing themselves to obtain it, ( hear, hear, hoar.) Was that becoming ? Was that a tribunal before which any indi- vidual, under similar circumstances, would with to be brought? ( hear, hear.) Without going over the whole of the anomalous proceedings which took place on that oc- casion— without adverting to all the means of indirect policy which were continually resorted to, it was impos- sible for him to refra'n from expressing the disgust which the details, that day after day were elicited, excited, and his conviction of the irreparable injury on the morals of the country, which the circulation of those details must inevitably inflict, ( hear, hear, hear). When, however, the Bill of Pains and Penalties was withdrawn from the other House of Parliament, the country undoubtedly ex- pected, that with the abandonment of the Bill, - hich tiie Prime Minister felt himseff compelled to move, the ques- tion, as one of hostility towards her Majesty, was set at rest for ever. But now they were told that her Majesty was not to he rest, r.- d to all those rights and privileges to w hich she was justly and legally entitled. The Noble Lord opposite talked of ik a technical acquittal !" 11 is Majesty's Ministers having been compelled, by the strong expression of public setuiment, to withdraw the Bill of Pains of Penalties*, now presumed to act against her Ma- jesty as if that Bill had passed both Houses of Parliament, and had become law. ( hear.) Of all the pernicious doc- tri . es he had ever heard, that which justified the prac- tice of attempting to whisper away the character of any one who had been tried and acquitted, appeared to him to be the most obnoxious and monstrous.—( hear, hear.) — What security could anj individual in the country possess, if such a" doctrine were once to be tolerated ? lie protest- ed most strongly, therefore, against this new principle of justice maintained by the Noble Lord, who, after the legal acquittal ofher Majesty, took upon him to say, that that acquittal was merely a technical acquittal, because the evidence had made an impression on his mind opposite to that which it had made on the minds of the nation.— He ( the Marquis of Tavistock) trusted, that this novel doctrine would not be engrafted into our Constitution ; he trusted that we should adhere tenaciously to the old English maxim, which presumed every accused person to be innocent until he was proved to be guilty.—( hear, hear.) For the sake of retaining office, his Majesty's Ministers had brought the constituted Authorities and the Church into jeopardy, and almost into contempt. They had made, what he feared was, an irreparable breach between the Princc and the people. And all this mighty mischief they had perpetrated without the slightest shadow of a pre- tence of necessity, ( hear, hear). If there was a man in the House who could conscientiously lay his hand on his heart and declare, that he believed there was any necessity for the proceedings which had been instituted against her Majesty, he ( the Marquis of Tavistock) should be very much astonished. Of this, he had no doubt, that the personal feelings of his Majesty had been much misrepre- sented ; and, indeed, one of the worst features of the whole transaction was the abuse which had been made of his Majesty's name.—( hear). All kinds of whispers and hints had been resorted to by the Advisers of the Crown, to get rid of their responsibility. Was that fair ?— Was it manly ? Did they do their duty to their So- vereign by thus endeavouring to shuffle off their cons- titutional responsibility from themselves? ( hear, hear.) To all this, he supposed, they would makd their accus- tomed reply— an overwhelming majority, in defiance of the declared and universal sense of the ccuntrv, and in contradiction, as he fii inly believed, to the private senti- ments and conviction of almost every man in the House, ( hear, heai). If that should be the case, he wished the Noble Lord much joy of it. He ( the Marquis of Tavis- tock) would thenceforward feel very little inclination to give the Noble Lord any trouble ; seeing that the House of Commons, constituted ait at present was, considered the will of the Noble Lord to be every thing, and the sense of the people to be nothing.—( hear, hear.) As for himself, he had no personal object whatever in view : he felt so wholly unqualified and so utterly unfit for business, that he had long made a fixed determination not to accept of office under any administration. A seat in that House was valuable to him only as it enabled him to perform what he considered to be his duty to the public ; and he would with great willingness retire into the ranks of private life, seeing that in that House public opinion had less i& fluence than perhaps, iu the legislative assembly of been to him the cause of much alarm.—( Cheering, and a laugh from the Opposition.)— A Noble Lord, whom he saw (. Lord Folkestone), seemed to make it a matter of merriment, but in his ( Mr. Banke's) opinion, it was not so for the country. He could not suppose that if Hon. Gentlemen came triumphantly into power, they would forfeit the pledges which they had given, even to men so dangerous. They must keep their, faith ; and that circum- stance gave him great apprehensions for the measures which they would introduce. In the two last months of the late lamented Sovereign's reign, two very important: bills were passed— one for preventing seditious meetings, and the other for restraining the liberty of the press. The Honourable Gentleman opposed those bills as being un- constitutional, and not rendered necessary by the state of the country. They were for all.. wing the press to revel in its utmost excess ; and with them banishment for the second offence of libel was not to be endured. His opinion was so entirely different upon those subjects, that theirs had created jn his mind the greatest alarm for the safety of the cou ntry. " What they call liberty," said the lion. Member, " I call licentiousness; becausg I think that at this mement the greatest dangers which can assail a fiee country are to be seen in the daily poisons which are cir- culated and disseminated throughout the nation." Any Gentleman coming into office, bound to the repeal of these bills, never must expect to meet his support. The p irty now in Opposition must also come into power pled- ged to a reform in Parliament. Not to that gradually progressive reform which would make a blot here and a blot there, as circumstances would warrant, but to some system which was to supersede at once the present mode of administering the Constitution. He did not accuse the party of entertaining the wild doctrine of universal suf- ferage, and other visionary delusions, which wee employ- ed to deceive the people ; bat they stood pledged'to some sweeping, and* wiiafrtbe-- factious called, evident measures. of reform, tie cotild not, therefore, see them come ! ii under such auspices, without entertaining most serious and unqualified apprehension—( hear, hear.)— Upon the question of Catholic emancipation he also preferred the present Ministry; because the granting of those claims must necessarily be the consequence of a change.— ( Hear.) He was aware that some of the present Ministers were in favour of siiCh a measure, but then others were hostile t « » it, aud while the Cabinet was divided, the question would be kept off. ' Without intending to pass an unqualified panegyric on Ministers, he Would say that, for a series of years, they had carried on the government by measure^ that had generally demanded his support. But it was saia on the other side, that there must Lie a complete change in the system of government. Now, he did not know; what that meant—( hear, hear.)— He had never heard it explained —( hear, hear.) With respect to the late French war, the Opposition side had denied its policy, and looked with despondency at the. resources of the country. Under the management of the present Mi- nisters, the most glorious war had been put an end to by the most glorious peace that had ever been made within the four last Centuries. Under all the circumstances which presented themselves to his mind, it was impos- sible that he could form any determination but that of op- posing the motion. Sir JAMES MACKINTOSH felt himself irresistibly called upon, by the observations which had proceeded front the Hon, Gentleman who had just sat down, to make some animadversions which their extraordinary tenor did seem to him to call for. The Hon. Gentleman (. Mr. Bankes) said that he approved neither of the beginning, the continuation, nor the end, of the proceedings that were lately instituted against her Majesty ; and then, tx> prove that his consistency was at least equal to his impar- tiality, he refused to give his support to a motion which embodied in it that very sentiment he had so expressed— ( hear, hear.) He should not inquire whether an uninter- rupted support of Government for very nearly 40 years with rather fewer exceptions than any public man would, be fond of avowing, even iu an Utopian transport, sa- voured of that impartiality of which the Hon. Gentleman, so much and so largely vaunted—( hear.) He congratu- lated the Noble Lord ( Castfereagh) heartily upon that part of the Hon. Gentleman's speech which related fo the glo- rious peace of which - it spoke. The glorious war, and its splendid conduct, he ( Sir J. Mack iu tosh) mu- t take the liberty of attributing to the great captains, the skilful measures and the invincible heroism of the brave army of England ( cheers). . But this glorious peace was entirely owing to the Noble Lord ! His Lord ship's labours had established the peace of Europe on a basis not to be sha- ken ! Such was the import of the Hon. Gentleman's ar- gument ; but if they looked around, what did ihev find; what had those exertions left, but heart- burnings among; the foreign courts, jealousies among princes, disgusts and indignation with kingdoms ? The Noble Lord, in an official letter recently made public, had been obliged, in the face of all Europe, to disclaim and to deprecate the acts and principles of his allies. Ilis Lordship had been pleased to say, that he would not recognize them, as th- ey were contrary to the fundamental laws of Great Britain. He had been compelled to acknowledge that they were contr. ry to the laws of nations ; he had been forced to ad- mit, that with such principles* of government as those set up by his late allies, no such thing as national liberty could exist—( Loud cheering)— and whatever mental re- servation the Noble Lord might rrrake to himself, still that declaration remained, and would be looked upon, it was to be hoped, by the allied powers, as effectually dis- couraging their flagitious and unwarrantable designs upon the rights and laws and liberties of nations.—( Hear.) — This was the harmony of Europe— this the august alliance — these the glorious effects, and these the enviable rcr. uhs of measures, ( accomplished under ,4 the auspice^" of Mi- nisters), which formed the subject of the panegyric that bad been lavished on the Noble Lord and his colleague*, by the rigorous impartiality of Hon. Gentlemen—( Cheer- ing and laughter). Now he would say something to another point ; the Hon. Gentleman had generously allowed, that there were many persons besides Ministers in whom that House and the country might have confi- dence ; but having laid down that doctrine, he gave proofs that he confined his liberality to one side of the House, and though he allowed the qualifications of can- didates for office in the Opposition benches, he could never agree to their eligibility—( A laugh).— He thought that they had the talents and capacity to be competitors for office, but could never allow any real competition. He would give a most liberal range to. expectancy for power, but would, at the same time, have a perpetual dictator- ship—( hear, hear), and would support Ministers at all hazards, although he could not approve of their conduct either in the beginning, middle, or end. He could not, for any liberality of theory, give up his practice of exclu- sion, and therefore he negatived the motion in fact, to which he virtually a^ ented—( a laugh). He was also ap- prehensive, lest his friends near him on the Opposition benches might redeem the pledges which they had given to the people, and he objected to them strongly for the countenance which they gave to public meetings and their opposition to the bill for the suppression of such assem- blies as he chose to call seditious. But, he would ask, what was there amiss in all this ; where was the matter .- f well- founded imputation ? When had it become a crime for Members of Parliament to appear before the people - to face their constituents— to reclaim them If mis ed ( cheers from the Ministerial Benches, re- echoed from the Opposition), or to teach them confidence if right ? As 1 - the Noble Lord, and those who rallied under his banner* when he gave the signal, he. w ould ask him and his friends if it was by declaring war, that the people, if mistaken, were to be reclaimed, or was it not rather by listening to,- ahd redressing their grievances, if real, by kindly shew- ing them '. heir error, if imaginary, by doing justice where there Tvas injury, and passing no condemnation without reason ? Is it ( said the Hon. Member emphatically) be- cause the majority of this House had declared war upon the people— f Great interruptions and cheers on the Mi-- nisterial benches, re- echoed by the Opposi I n.) As soon as the noise, which continued forgone time, sub- sided, Sir James Mackintosh resumed and said, Mr. Speaker, if I have said anything improper, you will cor- rect me ; I spoke of the tendency of the measures of the majoiity. Lord CASTLE RE AG II— I beg that the Spealcer will declare his opinion, whether it is competent for any Meirber to use such language, as that the majority of this House have declared war on the people?—( Cheers.) Mr. SPEAKER— I am sure there can be but oue opi- nion as to the words, and when I say jn. t one opinion, [ do not even except the Honourable and Learned Member who uttered them ; they are highly disorderly, antLI ex- pect they will be explained, being confident that the Horu Member would be the last person to refuse to stale their meaning. Sir J AMES MACKINTOSH tosumcd, and repeat- ed what he had said with respect to the tendency in place of the intention, and added, that it was the first time in which he ever knew a Member to call for an explanation after it had been in substance made. ( Hear, hear.) But I he would return from that interruption to his subject, not | less alive to its interests, nor less inclined to argue freely and fearlessly the topics which it involved. He asked, if a feeling of hostility towards the people, if the political schisms and dissensions to which it led, could produce any- good result? If that House was to be leagued against them, whom could they have to look to ? And would not such conduct be the very best means of giving them up to- the incendiaries who be et them ? He then vindicated the conduct of those Members of Parliament who- attended, public meetings, by the example of Sir George Savile and that of the Marquis of Rockingham.' and other celebrated Whigs, in the years 176' 9 and ] 772. The Hon. Genth- man ( Mr. Bankes) next turned his observations to Parlia- mentary reform, which he conceived several Gentlemen oil that side of the House stood pledged to ; and his great ob- jection was, that this reform was to be effective. — ( Hear, hear.)— He ( Sir J. Mackintosh) was not friendly to mahy of the plans of reform, but his objection to them arose- from their being ineffective; but the House were to'lcfc by the Honourable Member for Corfe Castle, that all reforms were to be dreaded, but that which filled him most with horror, was an effective reform.— ( Hear, hear.) lie would now say a few words on . the subject of the Li- turgy, and of the erasure of her' Majesty's name. Ile- would say, that it was illegal and impolitic. He wou'd not now, however, go into that question, nor would he ex- amine as to whether a bill of pains and penalties ought to- have been introduced, even supposing the chargesagaiust her Majesty well- founded-; though'he would say, in pass- ing that, if such were believed to be the case, an impeach- ment would have been the less objectionable of the two; but his objection went to all and every proceeding against her Majesty u^ impolitic.• The whole of the procevd- ft t i 4 Ings against lier Majesty had, ho conceived, been marked by injustice against her. lie had alluded to re- cent loyal addresses, and all of them had spoken of sedi- tion ana discontent. Who was it that caused this agita- tion of the public feeling to which those names were now given? He would say, the prosecutors of the Queen. It was to them he attributed whatever of discontent and ir- ritation agitated the public mind on the present occasion. It was to their first unjustly condemning, and afterwards unconstitutionally trying, then giving up the case as not sufficiently supported, and again punishing for what they had thus failed in carrying into effect— it was to these circumstances he attributed all that irritated and angry feeling which was now abroad, and which would be de- precated in its cause by every impartial man, except the Honourable Member for Corfe Castle, the advocate for a perpetual Administration. Ministers, instead of throwing a veil over, had made public the differences which unfortu- nately prevailed near the Throne ; and by this they had effected more to bring the monarchy into contempt than polled the idea of a conspiracy, and vindichteu the cha- racter of Count Munster from tiny concern in such pro- ceedings. The Noble Lord concluded his speech by an attack on the general conduct of the Opposition, whom he described as forward for a series of years in opposing every measure of the Government, whatever might be the state of the country, whether in a state of foreign war or internal rebellion, or whether a mutiny prevailed ih the fleet. As to the petitions, upon which so much reliance was placed, they were not by any means so numerous as those collected by the veteran Major iu favour of radical reform—( Loud and continued cheers). Mr. BROUGHAM rose immediately ; and, as soon as order could be obtained, requested the favourable atten tion of the House, not so much because he was in some degree personally concerned in what had passed, as because he had still to discharge the remainder of an anxious duty to her Majesty, rendered infinitely more painful and bur- densome by the tone and matter of the speech of the Noble had ever been done by any other set of men in this coun- try—( hear). He had little more to add—( loud cheers). The Noble Lord ( Castlereagh) might be assured, that his words, however warm, had proceeded more from sorrow than from anger. He felt the utmost sorrow that they had passed from a season of peace to a season, he would say, of peril—( hear, hear). The greatest breach had been made by the last division in that House that had occurred in his memory— a breach between the people and that House—( cheers.) He was afraid that the division of this night would widen iho breach — ( hear, hear, hear) ; and he greatly feared that it would soon become impossible to prevent the most deplorable consequences—( hear, hear). The House of Commons had supported Ministers in the late proceedings by a majority of 2 to 1— the people had opposed them by a majority of 20 to 1.—( No, no, from the Ministerial side, and loud cheers from the Opposition side of the House). He wished that this ground of dif- ference and war were removed, and that a 44 glorious peace" should be made between the people and their re- presentatives ; he wished that " a happy alliance" should be formed between the Parliament and the nation—( loud cheers). If this glorious peace— if this happy alliance could be effected, they would enable this country to brave the consequences of' 4 the glorious peace" and •• the happy alliance" with the potentates of Europc-( repeated cheers). If Ministers, whose proceedings had injured the throne and disgusted the nation — if Ministers, pronounced by themselves to be no longer trusted but tolerated— call for support, and should be supported on the principles of the Member for Corfe Castle, all he could say was, that he had exerted all the means in his power to prevent the fatal consequences which he dreaded ( loud and continued cheering), Lord Milton supported the motion, which was opposed by Mr. Twiss, when Mr. Bennet moved to adjourn, which was agreed to. Tuesday, Feb. 6. A number of Petitions were presented in favour of re- storing the Queen's name to the Liturgy. FOREIGN TRADE. Mr. WALLACE, in moving for the appointment of a Committee to inquire into the state of our foreign trade, said, the Government were fully impressed with the importance of navigation laws; but he would refrain from any observations on that subject till he should have some proposition from the Committee to lay before the House. Another object would be the consolidation of the commercial laws ; and another point of consideration would l> e the veryimprtant one of the shipping interest of the country. The Committee would also have to consider what advantages would be derived to trade by the opening caused by the change of circumstances in another distant part of the woild ; and if these circumstances were consi- dered, he believed we might not only still maintain, but even improve the forcigh trade of the country. Tne Right Honourable Gentleman concluded by moving the appoint- ment of a Coimnitteee to inquire into the foreign trade of the country. After a few words from - Mr. Curwen Mr. Baring, and Sir Jv Newport, a Committee was appointed, consisting Binong others of the following members :-— Mr. Wallace, Lord ' Castlereagh, Sir J, Newport, Mr. Ellis, Mr. D. Gilbert, the Chancellor of the Exchequer. Mr. Baring, Mr. Wilmot, Mr. Douglas, and Mr. Curwen. QUEEN- CENSURE ON MINISTERS. The adjourned debate on Lord Tavistock's motion was resumed. Sir R. Wilson, the Hon. Mr. Bennet, Sir F. Burdett. and Mr. Tierney supported the motion, which was opposed by Mr. Huskisson, Mr. Wellesley Pole, and the Attorney- General. Lord CASTLE HE A Gil commenced by saying, that the Noble Lord ( Tavistock) and the Honourable Gentle- man ( Mr. Lambton) had, in a fair and manly manner, brought the question under the consideration of the House. He wuuld meet it in a manner equally open and direct. With respect to the appointment of the Milan Commission, lie had no difficulty in stating, that though his Majesty's Government was in possession of the most painful informa- tion, they felt that they should be chargeable with disre- spect- to wards her Majesty if they had taken any proceed- ing without obtaining some official intelligence. He next adverted to the statement of a Right Hon. Gentleman now absent from Parliament ( Mr. Canning), who had Lord. It was mighty well for the Hon. Member for Corfe Castle ( Mr. Bankes) to assert that the time was now come when he (. Air. Brougham) might offer his promised explanation ; and it was easy for the Commissioner of Woods and Forests ( Huskisson) to repeat the taunt, and to allege as a reason for compliance the conclusion of all inquiries regarding the Queen. He would appeal to the House, after what had occurred, whether there was any appearance that those inquiries had terminated. Had all intention further to molest the Queen been finally and completely abandoned ? ( Hear.) Did the speeches with- in the last few days, even the most, moderate and guarded of them, give any such indication ? The Attorney- Gen. to excuse himself, had taken upon himself to re- assert what he had only asserted elsewhere ; the Member for Surrey, backed by the Member for Somerset, and sup- ported by a noble but voluntary witness, the Member for Westmoreland, had even introduced charges unheard of until long after the acquittal of her Majesty, and had ac- cused her, not only of maintaining a correspondence with Bergami, but of transmitting to him large sums of the public money to support him in a guilty splendour. The Nob'e Lord had stated, and justly, that a proposition was made, upon the part of her Majesty, in 1819; but he ( Mr. Brougham) distinctly stated, in express words, that that proposition was made without the knowledge of her Majesty, and that it was in terms at least the same which was afterwards offered by his Majesty to her. One re- markable feature, however, was not only omitted, but the direct contrary was inserted, in a subsequent offer made to her Majesty, then Princess of Wales, who was to have been allowed to have taken her royal title. It was in that offer declared and stated to be the title of Duchess of Cornwall. This was that title of the peerage by which, in fact, her Royal Highness was then recogniz- ed in the peerage of this country. He must remind the Noble Lord of another circumstance, which he could hard- ly however have forgotten— he meant the delay, upon his Lordship's part, between the months of June 1819 and February 1820, a term of nearly eight mouths, before any thing was done respecting that proposition. The Honourable and Learned Gentleman here declared that tiie Noble Lord, in asking him ( Mr. Brougham) to gain the Queen's consent to a proposition, which set out with declaring that it was made without her Majesty's know- ledge, could have expected but one answer to such are- quest. What then was the nature of the offer ? It was only a suggestion on the part of her Majestylegal adviser, that if such a proposition should be made to her, on the part of his Majesty's Government, they would advise her to adopt a course of which that should form tbe basis. It had been asked, why he had from the 15th of April to some day in June kept in his pocket the proposition he was charged to deliver ? Why, it was intended not that he should send over that proposition to her Majesty ; it was only meant that when he saw her he should deliver it to her? but the Hon. Member for Corfe Castle ( Mr. Bankes) talked of a delay of weeks and months, and this night the Noble Lord was urgent to know the reasons why that delay had occurred. He ( Mr. Brougham) never for one moment concealed from Lord Liverpool the impossi- bility of his going ( o such a distance as Geneva. ( Hear, hear). He had never given the Noble Earl the slightest reason to suppose- that he could be absent from his place in that House for more than six or seven days at the ut- most.—( Hear, hear). If then it was so especially neces- sary that this proposition must be made to the Queen at Geneva, or on the other side of the Alps, he should like to know why Lord Liverpool did not select some other channel, which might have saved the lime ; and what the Noble Lord opposite seemed to think of greater conse- quence, have saved the distance. Undoubtedly the fact was, that the Queen had no intention ofnegocuuiug— no, terms were suggested to her, either through the propositions offered by himself ( Mr. Brougham) or by Lord Hutchin- son, - or by any other person whatever, but those which she obtained, or rather ought to have obtained, by the conduct she had finally pursued. It seemed now absolutely mani- fest that no terms which could have been offered to her would have had the slightest effect in deterring her from returning to this country. The Honourable and Learned Gentleman then proceeded to refute the supposition that her Majesty had acted by any other advice than that of her legal advisers. No man who possessed common sense, even in the conduct of his own affairs, could have thought of venturing to advise her in such a matter of importance. It could only be known to her Majesty herself, whether end to them ; but oaf. of their rum would arise what would prove the disgrace of those who had been instru- mental in bringing on and sanctioning this violation of justice 1—( Cheers from the Opposition, followed by still louder cheers from the Ministerial Benches.) lie said, out of their ruins j— and after the pajans which had been sung in anticipation of triumph had subsided and were heard no more, would arise what would remain a lasting disgrace to the Parliament which had supported such measures— measures which were scandalous to Parliament.!—( Cheers from the Opposition.) — It would never, said the Learned Gentleman, be forgotten, that Ministers, having it in their power to produce the means of ascertaining the truth, hadv neglected those means— had chosen to bring in this bill, when, by sending for one or two witnesses, who were, he might say, living in their neighbourhood,- tbey might. have - prevented all the injustice and infamy ;' whieh had follow- ~ ed. Adverting to the Milan Commission^, which the Noble ; Lord had described as having been employed in a rigorous investigation to vindicate the character of the Queen, he observed, that the House would not kobw what " as the 1 description of the witnesses out of tlie> 80 whom they : had rejected. The House might, however, judge of \ their anxiety to avoid sending any thing very low or j mean when they sent out Rastelli ; of their wish to avoid j every thing that was filthy when they sent the pimp Cusbi . ( cheers) ; of their determination to avoid sending any one who was infamous and degraded, when they sent Ma- jocchi, Sacchi, and that pattern for all modest . chamber- maids. Mademoiselle Dcmont— ( h * ar, hear;) In conclu sion. he said, that every act of his in this proceeding, from the commencement, was governed solely by his duty to his Queen, and his " attention to the interests of his country.—( Loud cheering.) The question was then loudly called for, and without waiting , he usual formality of a reply from the mover, the Marquis of Tavistock, the House divided— Against the motion - - 324 For the motion - 178 Majority for Ministers - 146 Some other orders of the day were then disposed of, and the House adjjurued at a quarter before seven in the morning ! The House did not meet on Wednesday-. Thursday, Feb. 8. The House was occupied a considerable time in hear- ing petitions relative to the Liturgy question. STATE OF THE COUNTRY.

The account of this solemn ceremony details the taking of the oath of allegiance to the King, and an elo- quent discourse pronounced from. the pulpit; and thus concludes— " After this speech, which Was generally applauded, his Excellency declared the Cortes to be installed, and the President thanked the Government, in the name of the nation, for its labours. in so arduous a crisis. The mem- bers of the Government then withdrew, and those who were deputies went and took their seats as such. The election of the President followed ; the choice fell on the Archbishop of Bahia by 64 votes out of 74 ( the President to be chosen monthly.) The Deputy Manuel Fernando Thomas was elected Vice- President, and four Secretaries were chosen. 44 The Assembly proceeded to deliberate whether they should immediately choose a new Executive Government, but it being late, it was resolved to defer this till the fol- lowing day, aud a Decree was passed that the Provisional Government should continue to exercise its functions. ii) the interim.

Bench for three months, and ordered to pay a fine of -£ 2000. declared in that House, that after the appointment of the Milan Commission, a proposition was made by an Honour- able and Learned Gentleman supposed to be in her Ma jesty's confidence ( Mr. Brougham), which was regarded by the King's Ministers as entitled to their serious atten- tion. AH they desired to know was, whether that pro- position had been made w ith the knowledge of her Ma- jerty. Ministers had been, all along, most anxious to avoid a question, to the investigation of which there were so many objections, but despairing of being able other- wise to " protect the country agaiust the misfortune of hav- ing her Majesty placed at the head of female society while such charges existed against her. they were compelled by her own act reluctantly to do so. It was # mistake to suppose that her Majesty's intention to return to this country had grown out of the determination to remove her name from the Liturgy, for it was perfectly well known that she meant to return before the month of February, when that determination was first taken. The Govern- ment had been anlicm « * H along not to seek the opportuni- ty of prosecuting her Majesty, but to avoid it by all means in their power ; and he would ask, whether it was an irra- tional attempt in them to try whether the same proposition which had been stated to them by her supposed agent, might not form the basis of a satisfactory arrangement ? The Hon. and Learned Gentleman had stated in Parlia- ment, that the omission of her Majesty's name in the Jjiturgy was a circumstance light as air, as no other member of the family besides the King was named in it. lor iris own part, he ( Lord Castlereagh) had no hesita- tion in declaring, that if the same question were to be considered over again, under the same circumstances, he would act in the same \ yay to- morrow. He might assume that there was nothing very objectionable in the proposi- tion made at St. Owner's, when the Honourable and ^ Learned Gentleman had consented to be the bearer of such a proposition. The fact was, that he could not un- derstand the course which the Honourable and Learned Gentleman had pursued and was pursuing. He could not understand how, after stating that the insertion of her Ma- jesty's name in the Liturgy was a trifle light as air, he could come down to the House with a message, of which he might be fa » rlv considered the adviser, and say that the tranquillity of the country must be disturbed till her Majesty's name was restored. He could not understand how, when he was in possessi' n of a proposition from his Majesty's Government on the 15th of April, he should have remained till the latter end of May, and then pro ceeded to St. Omer's, and afterwards assert that her Ma- jesty had never seen it till she came into this country ; an event which he knew must be followed by a Parliamentary inquiry. The Honourable and Learned Gentleman had, with that knowledge in his mind, thrown upon Lord Hut- chinson the task of communicating imperfectly a proposi- tion with which he himself was furnished. Another cir- cumstance that puzzled him was, why he should have de- clined meeting her Majesty at Geneva, and appointed a place so near the coast. It was true that he might have been anxious to vote for a Whig candidate, but that was these charges were just or otherwise. Her own con- science told her that she was innocent of those acts which had been falsely imputed to her, in charges which had been, as they were now told, finally abandoned.— " I have stated this much," continued the Honourable and Learned Gentleman ' 4 as to the conduct of the Queen. It is fit I should now discharge what I call a debt of justice to her. I know it has been invidiously and male- volently asserted, aad most industriously circulated, for purposes which must be obvious to every man. that my expressed opinions of her Majesty's conduct are not the same in fact with my own conscientious conviction. It, is necessary, Sir, forme, with that seriousness and sincerity which it may be permitted to a man upon tlie most solemn occasions, to express— to assert— which I do now assert in the face of this House— that if, instead of an advocate, I had been sitting as a judge, at another tribunal, I should have been found among the number of those who, laying their hands upon their hearts, conscientiously pronounced her Majesty 4 Not Guilty.' For the truth of this asser- tion, I desire to tender every pledge that may be most valued and most sacred. I wish to make it in every form which may be deemed most solemn and most bind- ing ; and if I believe it not, as I now advance it, I here imprecate on myself every curse which is most horrid and most penal."—( It would be difficult to describe the earnest emphasis with which this asseveration was deliver- ed, and the deep interest with which it was listened to ) The important, the most material, question which was now before the House was, whether any measure should at all have been introduced against her Majesty ? The ; conduct of her Majesty was alleged to have been carried ! on, not in private, but in public ; and what he charged [ upon Ministers was, that in all and every stage of this I most unfortunate proceeding, from the sending out of the Milan Commission down to the latest act in it, that they had not taken any of those ordinary pains, or made any of those ordinary exertions, which would have been necessary on the most common occasion, where the ob- ject of the parties was to inform themselves of the truth of the information which they had got—( hear, hear). The same objection applied to their conduct in the secret Com- mittee, They had called so many witnesses, and they said that they might have called others; but he asked, why had they not called those others ? Why had they not called Dr. Holland. Lady Charlotte Lindsay, Mrs. Falconet, and several other most respectable individuals, whose situation had given them such opportunities as must have rendered their testimony of great importance ? But it might, perhaps, be said to the friends of the Queen, Why did you not call those witnesses, and they were open to you ?"—( Cheers from the Ministerial side)— Tie would answer, 44 We did call them—( Cheers from the Op- position)— and it was because we did call them, that we have aright to assume that if you had called them before, thev would have completely defeated the story which your servants and others had got up."—( Cheers from the Opposition )— This omission of calling all the witnesses, whose evidence would have put the country in possession the trade of Birmingham had greatly declined, and that an alarming dimunition of tbe consumption of the articles used by the lower orders was found to have taken place. The petition stated, that though some improvement had taken place in trade, yet with respect to hardware, there had been a diminution in the demand of 25 per cent. Mr. LAW LEY said, the petition involved the most important interests of the empire. The petitioners had found that a diminution of one- third had taken place in the necessary articles of life, such as bread and beer, and what was procured by credit. Mr. LITTLETON, as the most promising remedy for the embarrassments, which it was generally admitted do exist, suggested a commutation of some of the more oppressive taxes for an impost upon property ( not income) which should impartially affect land and funded property. Mr. CURWEN strongly resisted this proposition and gave it as his unequivocal opinion, that the remedy was to be found in a decrease of interest to the fundholders." In the course of the discussion the necessity of adhering to the decision come to with respect to the resumption of Cash Payments, and of maintaining, the public faith to the National Creditor, was strongly enforced on both sides of the House. The Petition was then brought up and read. After a few remarks from Mr, Baring, Mr. Ricardo, and Mr. Attwood, it was ordered to be printed. After some routine business the House adjourned at twelve o'clock. Friday, Feb. 9. Mr. CURTEIS presented several petitions from agricul- turists, complaining of the depreciated value of all the ar- ticles of their produce. KI L M AIN11 A M ME E TIN G. Mr. J. P GRANT, in absence of Mr. C. Grant, post- poned the notice which he had given on this subject till the 22d inst. In a Committee of Wavs and Means the CHANCEL- LOR of the EXCHEQUER proposed a vote of =£ 5,000,000 of the Aids of last year towards the supply of the present year, with several other resolutions. The Hon. Gentleman observed, that the reduction of the military expenditure mentioned in the speech from the Throne was a pledge of an intention on the part of Government to effect farther retrenchment. A saving of a large sum per annum had been made in the expense of collecting the public revenue, and he hoped, though he could not be certain of the exact sum, that a reduction of at least one million would take place in the whole expenditure. CONDUCT OF SHERIFFS. Lord BELGRAVE rose to present a petition from three hundred Freeholders of the county of Chester, com- plaining of the conduct of the High Sheriff at a late meeting of that county. After a long discussion, the petition was read, and ordered to be printed. It stated the complaint against the conduct of the Sheriff, for having violated tbe rights of his fellow- sub- jects, by refusing to put an amendment which had been proposed by Lord Grosvcnor, at a county meeting. and the hall resounded with cries of Long live the Kin the Royal Family, Religion, the Cortes, and every thing that is dear to the Portuguese. The whole city- was splen- didly illuminated in the evening, in honour of the national solemnity of this memorable day." Ourrfloioin « of the Douro.— Oporto Papers to the 27th ult. contain farther particulars of the damage done by j the late flood in the Douro, which, however, was not ac- | companied by an earthquake as stated in some of the 5 former accounts. Among the vessels which were in im- j minent peril we find the English brigantinc, the Fair Hibernia, which being ready to sail for London, with a cargo of wine, was forced from her moorings and driven on shore. F'our men unfortunately lost their lives. The Matilda, another fine vessel, laden with wine, and bound for Dublin or Greenock, was also carried away by the impetuosity of the current and stranded. Four Portu- guese yachts upset in the river, and sunk. A Spanish vessel shared a similar fate, as did a number of small craft of every description. The damage sustained by the vessels which withstood the force of the torrent, in their hulls, masts, and rigging, is enormous. The waters rose to an unprecedented height, and boats plied in the streets of the city. Several houses were swept away, and many suffered much injury. From the LONDON GAZETTE, Feb. 10.

THE KING'S VISIT TO t) RURY- LANE THEATRE, It is almost imposib- je to give an idea ofthfe, anxiety which the v isit of his Majesty to this Theatre excitcd on Tuesday night. All the avenues were crowded at it very early, hour, and loner before six o'clock the whole of the portico at the front of the box entrances, in Brydges- street, was so occupied as not to allow standing room above the steps to a single person. When the doors Mere opened the uM most confusion prevailed, and many ladies who tiskeil the chances bad reason to regret their temerity, from the pressure to which they were exposed. At. the pit entrance in Vinegar- yard, the assemblage was still more nume- rous; and in Russell- street great numbers werp also col- t lected. The house was of course incapable of holding all the candidates for admission in the first instance. Many hundreds went away disappointed. At a few minutes be- fore 7 bis Majesty arrived, accompanied by the Dukes of York and Clarence, and a large retinue of Lords in '. Vait- ingand other a t, n. lants.. The two bqxes op the right, of the stage were fitted up in the tame manner as they used to be for the late King, and the same ceremonials were ob- served, On the appearance of his Majesty, the whole of the audience burst into the most enthusiastic applause, which lasted so long as to interfere with the commenee- jrient of the performance for many minutes. The anthem of" God, save. the King," was executed- in a superior style by the vocal corps accompanied by the orchestra.— Ilis Majesty looked extremely well. The Du!< e of Cla- rence sat 011 his right and the Duke of York on his left.—, He appeared to pay great attention to t! ie performance on the stage and frequently joined in the approbation which was given to the performers. The Opera represented by! his Majesty's command was that of Arlaxerin, in which Miss Wilson had already made so strong an impression. This Lady exerted herself with great effect, as indeed wo may stateot'all the individuals concerned in the Opera, and in particular of that great ornament of the Knglis'i stage, Mr Brubam. But Miss Wilson was, of course, the novelty of the evening. The graceful cjirrihge of this Lady on the stage, tile elegance of her movements, and" the propriety of her action, have been justly admired She ovves these accomplishments to the skilful tuition of Mr. D'ICgvilie, by whom she has been instructed in that department. Another Gentleman to whom she has been indebted is Mr. Alvey, who was her tutor in elo- cution ; and we expect that, when she makes ah attempt in parts which call for display in that department? of the profession, the facility of the pupil and the experience of the teacher will be equally' apparent. At the conclusion of the Opera •• llule Britannia" was loudly called for, and sung by the company, whose efforts were rewarded with cheers of applause. Ilis Majesty joined in the approba- tion. He also appeared highly delighted, and laughed heartily at the humour of that admirable comedian, Mr. M uuden. At the conclusion of the Farce, " God save the Ki ng" was. again demanded bv the audience, and ac- companied with tiio same manifestations of sympathy as in the first instance. We have not yet mentioned one or two instances of dissent which took place in the course of the night, as they were so weak in their expression as. scarcely lo call for observation. The effect of the whole was certainly to illustrate the good policy of Kings ap- pearingamong their people, sharing in their amusements, and participating jn their feelings ; and we may quote this instance in addition to more important arguments, to prove that any Monarch iu this country at least, must take but an .: m, x rfect view either of bis dignity of llisiilterest, when he thinks it necessary to retire from the people, whose loyalty and affection constitute bis best support. At about eleven o'clock his Majesty was ushered front the box, an'd conducted from thence through the private entrance usually appropriated for his Majesty. He was attended by their Koyal Highnesses the Dukes of York and Clarence and suite. Mr. Ellis on, Mr. Winston, and Mr. Russell, attended as Principal Proprietors of the Theatre. On the announcement of his Majesty's approach be was received by a Iloval Salute, and the Horse S.. Idl- ers immediately drew their swords, and formed then' elves i in regular order. Ilis Majesty en entering bis carriage, j proceeded along Russell- street amid the applause and dis- J approbation of the populace. He wasfolluwed by the re- tinue who attended him to the Theatre. We did not hear of any accident happening during the evening. FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. LONDON, Feb. 10. Mr. Laplume, an Admiralty messenger, was on Tuesday suddenly ordered off to Naples, with dispatches to the British Admiral commanding tbe ships on that station. THE KING'S COURT.—- Tuesday his Majesty held a Court at his Palace in Pall- mall, when, among other business, the Earl of Westmorland, Viscounts Cas- tlereagh and Sidmouth, and Earl Bathurst, gave back their seals of office to the King ; when bis Majesty was pleased to present them respectively with new seals, as en- graved for his feign and approved by him. and the former seals were destroyed by the Clerk of tbe Council. Thursday morning, at nine o'clock, his Majesty held a Court at his Palace in Pall- Mall, which was attended by all the Cabinet Ministers. The King left the Palace for tbe Pavilion at Brighton, immediately after the break- ing up of the Council. His Majesty was attended by Sir B, Bloom field and Sir W. Keppel, aud escorted by a party of the 10th Hussars. The Coronation, it is said, is fixed to take place on the 18th of June, the Anniversary of the celebrated battle of Waterloo. Letteis from Rome mention Sir Thomas Maitland's arrival at that place, and his subsequent departure for Milan. On Thursday se'ennight a Meeting of the County of Surrey, was held for the purpose of petitioning Parliament to adopt such measures as would prevent any further pro- ceedings against the Queen, and to press on the Legisla- ture the necessity of taking some steps for the alleviation About 9000 persons were pre FROM FRENCH PAPERS. PARTS. Feb. o— The King has received the depu- tations of the Chambers of Peers and Deputies, and se- veral others, charged to express the regrets and indigna- tion excited by tbe late attempt at the Tuileries. The Court of Inquiry, as well as the two Legislative Cham- bers continue to carry on their investigations on this sub- ject, and it would seem not entirely without success. A man of the name of Ne'veu was taken up on suspicion of being concerned in those explosions. On the point of en- tering the office of the Commissary of Police appointed to take his deposition, escorted by a Peace Officer and two Inspectors, he took an opportunity, whilst pass; ng through a narrow corridor, to cut his throat, which he did so effectually by means of a razor concealed on his person, that he expired on the spot. The Maniteur gives the fol- lowing account of this man : He was formerly a merchant, since a broker, and in a state of bankruptcy. It is said he purchased on the day of the explosion twelve pounds of powder at various places and under different disguises.-— Several small packets . have been found upon him, con- taining a whitish powder, presumed to be poison, and ** girdle containing a large sum of money in gold. He stu- diously concealed his place of residence, and there is rea- son to believe that for some time past he slept ai houses of ill fame. He was a native of Rheims. At. one o'clock on Friday, a person of whom the Police had been in pur- suit for some days, was arrested in the Court of the Tui- leries, and delivered to the corps de garde. It is not known whether this arrest has any relation to the explosioas at the Tuileries, and other parts of Paris. FEB. 4.— Letters from Rome ofthe22d January say, " We expect a strong column of the Austrian army short- ly to pass through this city. Several contractors have un- dertaken to supply the troops." FEB. 5.— M. Bellart, the Procureur- General, had a private audience of the- King at two o'clock the day before yesterday. This Magistrate remained an hour and a half with his Majesty. A regulation of Police, relative to the sale of powder j and artificial fireworks, has been posted up in the streets of Paris. of the existing distress, sent, including a very large proportion of the nobility aud gentry of the county. The proceedings were conducted throughout with the greatest order and decorum. Lord King moved the resolutions, which were supported in ad- mirable speeches by the Hon. H. G. Bennet, M. P. Mr. Maberly, M. P. Mr. Dennison, M. P. for the county, & c. Lord Ellenborough opposed the resolutions, and was followed on the same side by Sir T. Turton, and Mr. II. Su. nner, M. P. The different speakers were heard without interruption ; and in conclusion the resolutions were carried by an immense majority, only five or six hands having been held up against them ! Lord Ellen- borough declared, that although he could not support some parts of the Petition, he would bear testimony in his place in the House of Lords to 44 tiie high respectabi- lity of the meeting, and ro the fairness, manliness* and moderation with which their proceedings had been charac- terized." What an admirable commentary on the Duke of Wellington's insolent declaration, that the English HIS MASESTY AT COVENT- GARDEN THEATRE. On Wednesday, his Majesty and suite left Carlton Palace exactly ten minutes before seven o'clock, in five or * ix carriages. Ilis Majesty was attended by the Duke of Montrose, the Eail Cathcart, the Gold and Silver Stick, & c. & c. The cavalcade arrived at the theatre just at seven,' preceded and followed by a division of the Life Guards ; j the iron gates were immediately thrown open, and the I carriages entered, followed by the loudest acclamations and j shouts of ,4 God save the King." " Long live King George | the Fourth," and similar expressions of loyalty and at- i tachment. The usual ceremony was observed by the mj- | litary on the King's approach, and Messrs. Han is, Faw- [ cett, & c. immediately approached the Sovereign, each { holding wax candles in silver candlesticks, and ushered, j his Majesty in. Sir' Robert Baker, Mr. Birnie, and other Magistrates were in attendance, with the principal police officers. His Majesty behaved with the greatest condescension to all around him, returning their obeisan- ces in a most dignified manner. Ilis Majesty was con- ducted to his box, w here he took his station between his Royal Brothers, the Yeomen of the Guard, and fouroftho Horse Guards mounted guard in the lobby, and remained near the Royal box during his Majesty's stay in the house, During the evening, the policy were stationed at both ends of Hart- street, to prevent the intrusion of carriages ( except such £ is accompanied the King), and we regret that an accident rather serious in its nature took place, ow- ing to an unfortunate misunderstanding between them and the military. When his Majesty arrivtd, an order was was given to force all persons back, to afford free access to the carriages ; but one of tlfe Bow- street patrol, who had lost his staff', refused to go away until- he found it, when one of the foot soldiers felled him to the ground by a blow of his musket, and inflicted a dreadful wound on his temple. The man, on receiving the blow immediately rail into the stage door, and was taken from thence to a. sur- geon's shop to be dressed; MARKETS, 4- r CORN EXCH ANGE. I* b. 9.

ALARMING FI RE.— On Sunday forenoon, about 10 o'clock a ( ire broke out in the still- house of the Snn- tJery Distillery, at Bell's Mijls. near this city. Although the engines belonging to the different Insurance Offices were promptly on the spot and every possible effort was tised all exertion to overcome the raging element proved unavailing, and the r © of fell in shortly after the firt* was discovered. Fortunately the building destroyed was un- connected with the rest of the premises, and the fire was got under without, other damage. Tiie premises belong to Messrs. Ilaigand Sons, and we understand are fully in- sured iu the Sun F. re Office. Three men were - severely hurt. FRIENDLY SOCIETIES.— A caw of considerable Importance to friendly societies was last week decided in the Justice of Peace Court here. It seems that an opinion had gone abroad that a member of any such society, though he had ceased and even refused to pay his quarter accounts for upwards of two years, and of course was li- able to be struck off the list, of members, in conformity to the rules of the society, had a right at any time, upon paying up his arrears, to the benefits of the Society. This, however, is an error; for in this case, where a member, ftp wards of two years in arrears, pursued the Slateford Friendly Society, for sick money, the Justices found that, the . pursuer had no claim whatever to the benefits of the society. The act of Parliament expressly stipulates, that when any dispute arises betwixt the society and a mem- ber. such is to be settled by two or more Justices, who are to decide according to the strict meaning of the rules of the society, provided the same be sanctioned by a Justice of the Peace. © umrnani of Ipohttcg.

He successfully displayed the fatal tcmlencv of those measures they had hitherto adopt- ed, and supported his reasoning by such convincing arguments, drawn from the continued misgovern- ment ot our rulers, as could not fail of carry ing con- viction to the mind of every man divested of preju- dice. The motion was ably and energetically se- conded by Mr. LA. MBTON, when 4 long, and in some parts animated, debate followed, which was adjourned to the dav following. On Tuesday, this most interesting debate was resumed, and protract ed until near seven o'clock next rooming, when the motion was rejected bv a majority of 116, the num- bers being— ayes, 178— noes, 321. We have seen the House of Commons resisting the most powerful influence which - talents and experience could command, even that of PITT and Fox united, against the imbecile Administration of HENRY AD- WNOTON, but we were not prepared for such a re- sult in .1 case like the present, where the voice of the country had been so loudly aud unequivocally expressed. Composed as it now is, the interest of the Members and Majorities, it seems, rests on too solid a foundation to be moved by public opinion ; and the indifference to it, on this occasion, the most important jierhnps ever submitted to the Le- gislature, was seemingly a subject of triumph to an Hon. Member, Mr. PEEL, when he congratulated himself on the quality the House of Commons so eminenll)' possessed in this respect. Lord CASTLE- REAGH, who had vamitiugly used similar language 011 a former occasion, completely failed in his vindi- cation of the conduct of Ministers, nor could he answer in a satisfactory manner one of the grounds of charge so ably urged in the luminous speech of Mr. TlERNEY. But his Lordship, with his col- E leagues and his majority, readily admit, that the opinion of the people at large is against them, ex- pressing themselves confident, however, that the country will soon " come to its senses ;" which means, tlmt thev shall be able to tire out the coun- try. This is one of the arts 011 which corruption relies and usually takes refuge ; but we trust, that the country, which has now so deep a stake, will never relax Its efforts, but will support its own in- terest and the national character, by coming forward once more in a body against Ministry, whose deri- sion of public opinion, as well as that of their par- tizans, shews it is high time to rouse ourselves — Opposition, with the most convincing arguments, in their favour, may Ciil in gaining votes, without the aid of such irresistible motives as were found on occasion of the repeal of the Property Tax, but the jjersevering and united voice of the nation cannot long be desregarded, much less despised.— The noble Mover has, in despondency, expressed his intention of leaving the field to his opponents ; but although his present patriotic exertions add another to the many claims of the House of Russell upon the gratitude of the country, we cannot think of acquiescing in the sentiments of his Lordship on this occasion, while we hope he may yet come for- ward to assist with his upright, manly, and inde- pendent counsel and support. We must never yield to despair, otherwise we can no longer indulge the hope of renovating the Constitution we so much value, of seeing it in practice what it is in theory, or of enjoying those blessings which it conferred. Much has been said of our Overwhelming national debt, and of the little effect, the deduction of all tlie money given to Placemen and Pensioners could have, when taken into account with such an enormous amount. But this will be found not so inconsider- able ; and taking another view of the matter, we must consider it of vital importance to subdue the corrupt influence, now so obviously prevalent in the Honourable House, by applying vigoiously and skil- fully the pruning hook to the Sinecures of our Re- presentatives. The attention of Parliament has at las* been drawn to the deep distress of the country, in the way whero relief to the suffering classes of tiie community can alone lie obtained, the consi- deration of the financial system. In a Committee of the House 011 the Ways and Means, this impor- tant subject underwent a discussion, in the course of which various propositions were brought forward by the several Members who spoke, each, according to the different views taken of this difficult and in- tricate question, calculated, in their opinion, to lessen the burdens under which we totter. A re- duction of the interest to the national creditor had been proposed on a former debate ; but 011 ail hands, we are now told, justice demands a sacred adherence to on* engagements. The fundholder shared the Income Tax, and as we then saw 110 violation of public faith in such a proceeding, neither could it now tie a just subject of complaint. Taxation cannot be allowed to drain drv one part for the sup- port of the other ; nor can that state of society long exist, where not only income but capital is taken away, not only the means of support, but of future production. Such a state of things must soon break the spirit p. nd exhaust the strength of the country. Rigid, strict economy, and a consequent reduction in our expenditure, seems the best and surest remedy which, in our present circumstances, can be applied. Out of a revenue of 18 millions of i. nnual increase in our expenditure, since 17S2, with what is unap- propriated of that bubble the Sinking Fund, we have the authority of one of the most respectable London papers tor saying, that " immediate relief from Taxation to die amount of at least seven millions per annum might lie given to the country," This would at once Conciliate the people, new life and vigour would be the almost- immediate consequence in the three great branches of Agriculture, Manu- factures, and Commerce. Increased consumption would revive trade at liojne and abroad, and keep the country actively engaged in comparatively pro- fitable pursuits, until Parliament shall have investi- gated fully the causesfof our present disordered state, and maturely weighed the remedies applicable to our situation, or likely tobe productive of perma- nent advantage. It somehow unfortunately hapnens, that many of our public State Papers are couched in that ambiguous language, or have a veil of such mvsterv thrown over them, as to render them either of doubtful interpretation, or requiring such explana- tion as to bring them to the level of our understand- ing. Of this nature is the Answer of our Govern- ment to the circular addressed by the Congress of Sovereigns at Troppati, with regard to Naples; so that Earl GREY, in the House of Lords, has stated, that further information on the subject is necessary, and was to move for some papers 011 Monday last relative thereto. The production of these papers will throw some light on the part our Government has taken in this tusine- s from the commencement. Lord CASTLEREAGII has already disclosed enough ta shew that Great Britain, once the Protector of European 1 iberty, is no'lotiger to uphold that ge nerous and noble character by interposing in favour of the devoted kingdom of Naples, but in language which cannot lie misunderstood, says to our worthy allies— that " although 110 longer able to supply them with money, yet they shall meet with 110 in- terruption from us, and that although we cannot openly avow their principles, yet they have our best wishes to GO ON aud prosper !'!" Deprived, there- fore, of the assistance of the only power which could have saved them, the Neapolitans, it is much to be feared, cannot meet the overwhelming force arrayed against them, and in all probability now invading their territory. France countenances this unprincipled aggression, Austria and Russia unite in crushing these unfortunate people, and Prussia espouses the unhallowed cause of despo- tism. We tremble therefore for the fate of this lately emancipated country, exposed to such a for- midable, thou. h unprovoked, profligate attack, as that of which intelligence has been received, as stated in the following article taken from the Englisk- man, in whiclj it first appeared. WAR BETWEEN AUSTRIA AND NAPLES. " By an express which arrived yesterday from the Continent we have received the important intelli- gence, that the main division of the Austrian army, consisting of 60,000 men, broke up from its quar- ters 011 the right bank of the Po on the 29th ult. with orders to march 011 Naples. A manifesto has, we understand, been issued, announcing the inva- sion to be made, not bv Austria as a separate Power, but as a member, and in the name, of the Holy Alliance. O11 that basis all intention is disclaimed of occupying Naples with the view of territorial aggrandisement, but solely for the purpose of dicta- ting such a form of Constitution to the Neapolitans as may be consistent with tlte safety of their neigh- bours. A11 outline of the form of government meant to tie imposed, as the ultimatum of the Allied Powers, has been dispatched to Naples, for the consideration of the Parliament, who will be allow- ed a very short period, some letters say only two days, to deliberate 011 the proposition. Meantime the Austrian army will advance to Rome, to receive the answer of the Neapolitan Parliament ; but as there is little doubt that the high and spirited tone assumed lately by the nation will produce an indig- nant rejection, it is expected that a verv few posts will communicate an attempt, at least, on the part of the Austrians, to occupy the fortified posts of the Neapolitan frontier. The proposition to the Parliament of Naples is signed by the Emperors of Russia and Austria, and the King of Prussia. It is mentioned, lint we feel disposed to withhold our credence 011 that head, that the name ot the King of Naples is also affixed to it." The French papers do not altogether confirm the above intelligence, but their contents render it too probable : nor can we doubt, from the tenour of the continental news of late, that although these ac- counts may be premature, the despotic Powers, and Austria in particular, are fully determined on sub- duing the liberty of Naples. Austria has every thing seemingly in her favour at the outset, but the fortune of war is not such as the wisest can calculate upon, so as to predict the consequences to which it may lead, or be productive of to the powers engaged. The spirit of liberty and liberal sentiments is now abroad, and in spite of all obstacles has discovered itself among all nations ; and although a temporary check mav be given to its enlivening impulse, yet, we trust, it shall finally prevail; to the discom- fiture and shame of its enemies, and prosperity and happiness of mankind.

On Wednesday last, the Pier was crowded to witness a Race between a Boat belonging to the, Alexander and one belonging to the Hercules. Whalers, which was won by the latJer by about two lengths, and was warmly con- tested. The distance, 4 miles, was performed in 37\ minutes. The excellent Band of the Panorama of Algiers, now exhibiting here, was paraded on the . water, which, with the serenity of the day, and calmness of the sea, tended much to enliven the spectacle. We undersiand, that this Race has given rise to a little Pi Giving among the Whales— and that a Subscription is now on foot for another Race, by Whale Boats, early in March, w hen each Ship will have an opportunity of shew- ing the speed of her best boats.

The Dress Practising given by Mr. CORHYN. on Wed- nesday last, for the Benefit of the relatives of the Fisher- men who penshed on the < 3d instant, was very numerously and genteelly attended* The proceeds, after deducting the charge made by Mr. Dempster for the use of his Hall, and incidental cxpences* amounts to £ 1.8 10. for which the Managers for the distribution of the Charity return Mr. Corbyn their best thanks. The handsome manner in which he came forward, and his exertions on the occa- sion, cannot be too highly praised. THE PLAGUE IX ALGIERS.— Algiers, it is said, is very frequently visited with the plague ; but, we believe, the greatest plague that ever that city experienced was the British fleet. The lively representation of that victory continues to draw a greater share of public atten- tion, than any exhibition ever tendered to the inspection of the tasteful citizens of Aberdeen: as it is about to close in a few days, we earnestly entreat our Readers not to lose the ptesenf opportunity ; and we assure them, they will be most amply gratified.— See Advertisement. It gives us pleasure to have to state, that Capt. FLRau- SON of Pitfaur, before setting out for England last week, made a Donation of Fifty Pounds sterling, to the Poor of the different parishes in which his Estates are situated, in Aberdeenshire— to be laid out under direction of the Ministers and Kirk Se-. sions.

On Thursday, between two and three o'clock, p. M. the Work Shop of Mr. CLARK, Cabinet Maker, was dis- covered to be on fire ; but owing to the prompt exertions of those who hastened to the spot, it was fortunately ex- tinguished in a few minutes, with very little damage. Wre understand a SERMON is to be preached in the West Church, To- morrow livening, the 18th, by the Rev. Dr. LEE, from St. Andreids. in aid of th. e Female Society for the Relief of Aged and Indigent Women.. A the usefulness of this Institution has been long proved, and the objects of its relief are known to be of the most helpless kind, having, from advanced age, outlived their friends; secluded from the e} e of public charity, and living in neglect and poverty ; it is hopfcd that the generous friends who have hitherto come forward tp assist, will, on this occasion, continue their benevolence, that the Mem hers of the Society may still have it in their power to sup. ply the wants ofs*> numerous a class of Widows and Aged Females. The Society beg leave to state, that they have always studied to avoid interfering with any other Public Collection, and thought they had done so on the present occasion, not having heard of any other after the one for the Poor House. They would have most willingly put off their Sermon to a future period, but from particular circumstances, cannot get it done ; and as the claims of the Society are at present very urgent, they hope a gene- rous public will make an exertion in their behalf.

At the former of these competitions forty- five Ploughs started, and at the latter thirty- five ; and we are inform- ed, that the work was executed at both competitions in such style, as clearly to evince the perfect state to which this important branch of Agriculture has been biouglit in j the County of Aberdeen. At Little Clinterty. the task prescribed was limited to three hours, both for Cattle and Horses; notwithstand ing of which, the second Premium was gained by a pair of Oxen. An accident of a most distressing nature happened, on Thursday last, to a Farmer who lived near Higi. biidge on the braes of Lochaber. Two boys, his son aud nephew, were amusing themselves with a loaded gun, when it un- fortunately went oil; and the contents were lodged in the body of the Farmer, who fell down and instantly expired. We arc sorry to learn that a man was last weeE thrown overboard from a boat, in a sudden gust of wind off Ross- keen. The bbut belonged to luvergordon, and was re- turning from Alness- point. The poor man has left a widow and seven children to lament his loss. A collec- tion is making for this orphan family at Cromarty aud Inverjjordon. POSTS Cil I FT. LONDON, Feb 13. The Austrian* have atlergth marched towards Naples, and we much fear that they will succeed in imposing their iron German yoke on the unfortunate inhabitants of thatf country. After what we have learned from Lord Castle- reagh's Circular of the part taken by Great Brit< « n intlt^ negociations which hav'e led to this,, disastrous event, we confess that we have little hope of any successful resist- ance on the part oftbe Neapolitans, to this most profligate and most unprovoked invasion of their territories. Lord Castlereagh's Note speaks too plainly tobe misunderstood. Do what you please, and what you can with Naples, my noble Allies— it is true I have no money to give yen* —. 1 must also, to a certain extent, disavow your principle*- in the popular Assembly to which my condwct will be submitted ; but go on, in God's name, go CNV Sett'ie among yourselves what you will take in the way of mutual compensation and security ; hut GO ON, and prosper ! ! !" This is the plain language of his Note-; this frthe result of that degrading system of semi- netitrality, to which the Foreign Administration of Lord CastJereagh and his Col- leagues has reduced this generous and once preponderating country ! We have said that we " fear" that the A u stria t> armiea will met with no successful resistance. We fear this, more from our detestation of the cause for which they are marching to Naples, that from the certain consequences ( more or less remote, but in our opinion certain) of their success on the heads of their innocent subjects, when the* day of retribution shall arrive. These short sighted So- vereigns little think how they are swelling VUE GUANA AC- COUNT CTFKFCENT, which, ever since their triumph over Napokron, they have opened with mankind. Let them depend upon it that account will one day be settled, aud in a way more bloody and more horrible than can l> e found in the history of any Revalution since the beginning ot the world— Morn. Chron. Earl Grey's motion respecting the conduct, of the- Al- lied Sovereigns towards Naples, which stood for last night, was postponed until Monday next. The rumour of the passage of the Po by the Austrian troops, which prevailed on Sunday, rendered the delay necessary. It is now discredited by the foreign papers, aud will, we hope, re- ceive a complete contradiction before that time. The King, through Sir B. Bloomfield, expressed, that he never was more delighted than with Miss Wilson's per- formance of Mandane, on Tuesday night at Drury- kne theatre. A numerous and respectable meeting of the Electors of Westminster was held yesterday at the Crown and An- chor, in the Strand, when a Subscription was opened for raising 20001. * o defray the expanses attendant on the sentence of Sir Francis Burclett. At half past eleven o'cloc k yesterday morning, a very numerous procession of the inhabitants of Spital- tield? passed the Strand, on its way to Brandenburgh House, with an Address to her Majesty, Consisting of Twenty- carriages filled with ladies and gentlemen, the postillious wearing yellow satin Jackets. We understand the above Address was signed by above 10,000 pen- ons; In addition to the twenty Addresses already memtione.' I presented to her Majesty yesterday, we have to notice one from the town of Belfast, to be presented by the Duke ot* Lelnster ; and one from Kidderminster, vtry uumtroijaly signed, to be presented by Lord Foley.
