Experience JL during a very long period has incontestably proved the superior efficacy of this Medicine, in all cases of Colds, | Coughs, and Asthmatic aifections. By promoting gentle ! expectoration it very shortly relieves the patient of a slight ! or recent Cold, and a few doses are generally sufficient to | remove those which neglect lias rendered more confirmed and obstinate, and which are accompanied with Cough, Spitting. of Biood, and other serious symptoms. Its pe- culiar balsamic powers tend to heal soreness and allay the irritation of the lungs, in cases of Cough ; and in Asth- matic affections it assists and gives freedom to the Breath. Thus it is . an extensively valuable Remedy in the most prevalent- class of complaints in this Country, during the winter season. Sold in Bottles at Is. l-* d. and 2s. 9d.; by the principal Druggists, Booksellers, and Medicine Venders, in every Town throughout the United Kingdom. Ar. B.

IN laying before the Society the Accounts of the Trea- surer for last year, the Committee have much satisfaction in stating, that a very considerable improvement has taken place in the Funds, and that a sum of £ 78 7s. 4d. has been added to the Stock of the Society. It is to be ob- served, however, that the accounts are brought down this year to the 1st of March, and that the receipts since the commencement of the present year fall to be charged with a quarter of the Master's Salary, which becomes due very soon. After making tiie necessary deduction on this ac- count, there will still remain a considerable surplus in favour of the Society : a fact which is the more gratifying, as it will be in the recollection of die Society, that there was a deficiency for each of the three preceding years, and that, to meet these deficiencies the small capital belong- ing to it had been nearly exhausted. This improvement has taken place pretty equally in all the branchesof the Society's Revenue. But it is farther to be ob « erve4, with regard to the School Fees, that every addition, which is made to the number of Pupils neces- sarily occasions, at the same time, an increase in the ex- penditure; and withregardto theother twobranches, name- ly, the Subscriptions and Donations, it is to be kept in view, that, during last year, in consequence of the alarm- ing state of the Society's Funds, unusual exertions were made by the Subscribers to obtain additional support to it, and some of the Donations are of so large an amount, that it is scarcely probable that they will be often repeated. When all these circumstances are taken into consideration, they are afraid that the Surplus Revenue, which appears upon the accounts of this year, can hardly be depended on for the future. It will be in the recollection of the Society, that, at the time of its institution, there was subscribed a sum of £ 190 for the purpose of Building a School House; hut that the measure was laid aside for the time, in consequence of that sum falling short considerably of the estimates which wrere procured of the expence of building. By the Committee's Report of last year, itappears that this Fund was reduced more than one- half hy the annual deficiencies in the re- venue, and the plan of building had, of course, been re- linquished; In the present state of the Society's Funds, the Committee certainly would not have revived this sub- ject, if necessity had not compelled them to do so. They understand, however, from the report of tradesmen, that the present School House is much out of repair, and, in fact, altogether inadequate to the accommodation of the Pupils; and, as the Committee are unable to procure the necessary accommodation elsewhere, it would appear, that it has become absolutely necessary to the very existence of the Institution, that some means be devised for raising such a sum, as, with the balance of the Building Fund still remaining, will enable the Society to build a School House. Under this impression, the Committee have procured Plans aud Estimates of a suitable Building. The esti- mates amount to about £ 350; which, after deducting the sum at the Society's credit in the Bank of Scotland, leaves about -€" 200 to be provided for. If the object in view were attained, it would produce an immediate saving of the Salary paid to the Assistant Teacher, and thus add a sum of £ 20 to the yearly reve- nue of the Society, besides the rent of £ 30 paid for the present School House; which sum would also be struck off from the expenditure, except a trifling feu- duty for the ground stance of the building. From the Report of the Master, likewise, it appears that the attainment of this measure, by which the Pupils would be contained in one room, in place of two, would accelerate their progress in a very considerable degree, and contribute most essen- tially, in every respect, to the usefulness of the Institu- tion. As the Society seem now to be in possession of a Re- venue sufficient to meet its present Very economical ex- penditure, perhaps a Loan may appear to be the most obvious mode of raising the sum required. The Com- mittee think, however, that nothing tends so much to embarrass the operations of an Institution of this nature, as the contraction of debt, and they would therefore sug- gest the propriety of trying, in the first place, the effect of a Voluntary Subsctlption. They do think, that the Institution has as strong a cl. i n as any other on ihe sup- port of the Public ; and they feel confident* that it will not now fail for want oi that suppou, Notwithstanding the disadvantages, under which the School in Harriet Street labours at present, the number of children on the lists has increased considerably during' the ia^ t year, and amounts now to nearly 500 ; and the Committee have much pleasure i » saying-, thaV they be- lieve the success of tire Institution is to be ascribed, in a great measure, to the personal exertions and merits of the Mister. In the present state of the Funds, the Committee are' aware, that any immediate extension of the operations of the Society is out of the question. Yet, they think it ought not to be forgotten, that the scale in which they have- been hithertoconducted, is but a limited one ; and that the Society cannot be said to have fulfilled completely tire objects of its institution, until the benefits of Elementary Instruction shall be made accessible to the whole popula- tion of this City.

TH E leading object in the political retrospect for the fast week is, the Catholic Emancipation Bill. This subject lias been agnin brought before Parliament by Mr. PLUNKETT, in his morion. - 4 that a Conrnittee be appointed to con- sider the state of the laws by which oaths or declarations are required to be taken to qualify for offices, so far as the said oaths or declarations affect Raman Catholics, and what modifications it was desirable shou? d bo made in the same." The political expediency of this measure has been long and anxiously debated, and the first Statesmen of their age have differed materially, in their views and opinions with regard to it. We are inclined to think, that the present time has been judiciously chosen, for bringing this subject once more into consideration. If thir pre- sent Ministry have the interest and " prosperity, yf a large portion of his Majesty's subjects truly at heart, let them at once, with a majority of their vo^ es, put at end to tli desire to see no more, than that die good, and learned 1 f ™ ^ , 1 ' 1 e « • and virtuous, of whoever class or^ denomination^ they m, ly > ^ M * SCRSC m0r » , ltv be. should go hand in hand, upholding that Constitution which has been the pride 6f Britain, and the admiration and envy of foreign nations. CLElUCUS. To the EDITOR of the ABERDEEN CHRONICLE. SIR, AT a time like the present, when the actual state of this once happy, but now miserable, country, calls so loudly for that immediate and radical Reform, which alone is able to save our few remaining liberties, and to prevent the worst evils to which a state can be subjected ; and as the principles of that Reform seems to be greatly, misun- derstood by many, I think it is a duty which devolves upon every man. wb > wishes well to his country, to rouse in his fellow countrymen as much as possible, a spirit of inquiry into the conduct of Governors, ^ particularly so far as it more immediately concerns those governed. I will, therefore, take theliberty of saying a few words on Reform, which, if you think in the least worthy of a plaee in your Valuable paper, you wiU^ blige one who would feel happy in being in the least instrumental in forwarding that spirit of inquiry so prevalent in many parts of the country. This country* once in reality the Land of Freedom, now present& tfs with the awful spectacle of a nation, the principal fVnfts of whose industry are swallowed up in the mainte- nance of Placemen and Fundho'ders. Whose Go- vernment, by its fiscal" exertiensand incessant destraintsfor ( axes, occasions multitudes annually to be turned into the Streets, and to seek for parochial relief; whose opulent members in general are gradually sinking into morestrait- ned circumstances, except those who live upon the taxes ; in fine, a nation whose handicraftsmen have no better prospect than, by unremitting drudgery, to eke out a de- pendent and miserable existence, without ever having it in and their adherents- will re Roman Catholics will accept eve" ii from tlie present Mi- nistry, the glad boon, which ' will place them ir> the scale of political existence at • tire- equilibrium, which their num- bers and respectability entitle them to. The Catholics have urged their claims with a moderation which should Command attention. They have urged them, without regard, to the great question of Reform, and we would fain ' hope, that on this score the Ministry may be inclined to give them their support. If, as is reported, the King be * favourable to the measure, we have little doubt of its success. But. independent of this, the justice of the case de- mands a concession like that petitioned for. Wherever a flagrant and glaring act of injustice has been committed, it is the bounden duty of a Government to grant a speedy remedy. In this view. then, the Catholic claims are pre- eminently entitled to consideration. The Catholics have been excluded from those benefits and privileges, which they have defended with their best and noblest blood, and Mr. PLUNTCETT was only doing them justice, when he stated, that no class of his Majesty's subjects had shed their blood with a prodigality more approaching to self- devotion. And why then are thev refused a participation in the benefits of that Constitution, which they have so fiobly defended ? What crimes have they been guilty of, that they should be excluded? Have they been less for- ward in their loyalty than other classes ? No, but a nar- row illiberal prejudice has been in active force against them and their religion. They are regarded more as out- casts than as men. This spirit is alike hostile to every dictate of Christianity. The same Goo who looks on us, protects them, and it is not for man to say, that their re- ligion or principles arc less pure than other doctrines that > i e professed. But the monster prejudice is a stum- bling block, which neither argument nor reason can re- move. It weakens the understanding , and chocks up every avenue of compassion to the heart. Mr. PLUN- KF. TT. I « > HIS motion, had more of this to encounter than any arguments or reasons which the opposite party had to produce. Indeed, this is sufficiently obvious, by a glance at the speech of the Gentleman who rose to oppose it.— We allude to Mr. PEEL. The arguments he adduced • were feeble and ifl supported ; and, by the spirited and energetic reply of Sir JAMES MACKINTOSH, they were com- pletely overturned. Indeed, Mr. PEKL appears, rather to have delivered his speech as a matter of course, and from an anxious desire to appear consistent in his opi- nions, more than from any well grounded conviction, that the claims he was opposing were inimical to the interests of the country. It would have been far more honourable, had he made an open and candid avowal.— IVe are open to conviction, whenever good grounds shall be shewn by Mr. PEEL and his adherents, for their side of the question, then we shall most readily subscribe to their tenets. Till, however, we are satisfied, that they have pursued the most judicious course, we shall not hesitate to avow our entire disapprobation of their pro- ceedings. In his acquiescence, in the high and merited eulogium paid by the mover to the late Mr. GRATTXN, • we cordially concur. That Gentleman had all along clung with a 44 desperate fidelity" to the measure. It was alwavs nearest his heart, and in his death the Catho- lics and Ireland sustained a loss which will not be soon I repaired. The eloquent appeal which Mr. C. GRANT made in behalf of this oppressed and insulted body, was such as to deserve the highest praise. Ireland has in him a true patriot, one who is alive to her dearest in- terests, who is ever anxious to do all in his power to meliorate her condition ; and although we differ from his politics widely, yet to his sentiments, on the present oc- casion, we heartily subscribe. In former Parliaments, in the first stage of procedure, tlie ftill has met even with a much more favourable re- ception than at present, and yet been lost. Looking to its former fates, we cannot disguise our anxious fears for the issue; of the justice and liberality of the measure we never entertained a doubt. Both in a political and re- ligious point of view, they are entitled to all they have petitioned for. Because, in the first place, no good grounds have been shewn for their exclusion from any privile. eS, which another class of his Majesty's subjects enjoy; and consequently, we must hold them equally well entitled to the same benefits, until such grounds be established : and secondly, because, although their tenets, almost in all respects, are essentially different from those professed by the greater body of the population of this empire, yet this can form no just basis for their exclu- sion. They are not bound to acquiesce in any particular faith, certain oaths arc proposed for them, and if Catho- lics with safe consciences can take these oaths, on what grounds are they denied their just privileges ? Will it be said, that a Catholic cannot be believed on his oath ? Why allow it in one instance and not in all? By law, a Catholic on oath is as much entitled to be believed as the ittost rigid Protestant in the land; and thus one part of tlVeiV doctrine is indirect opposition to the other. The time; when any danger was to be apprehended from Catholic intrigues; is long gone by— and although Mr. PEEL is desirous that no " irrevocable" change should take place in the laws, with regard to this particular part of the Constitution, he has stated no grounds on which he can for a moment rest his arguments. If the Ministry grant the boon so earnestly prayed for, they will secure to their Royal Master, the hearts and affections of a truly loyal and constitutional sect. The act will be fcailed with enthusiasm, not only by the parties more im- either to themselves or the infantine objects of their _ - and affection. When we see all this come to pass, cer- tainly no man will be base enough to deny the immediate necessity of a Reform in the Representation of the People. We fully recognis." the doctrine of representation and taxation as being inseparable, and as being founded upon that maxim of our political constitution, ,4 that every Briton has a light to. be governed by laws enacted by his own consent, or that of his representatives." This is surely the very essential of liberty, auu all deviations from it, by fraud or force, ought to be regarded as usurpation and tyranny. An individual cannot surely be stated to en- joy political liberty, while at the same time lie is denied th9 right of voting for his representative in the legislature, without the most absurd mockery. If the best govern- ment and laws under heaven owe their existence entirely to the will of a Monarch, or a privileged few, it can by no means constitute political liberty. If the exercise of our callingsconstitute our whole property in the state still, our liberty, and the fruits of our industry, ought to be held no less sacred than the liberty and property of the richest in- dividual in the state, and ought to be no less the objects of protection. But this protection can never be enjoyed, while we are deprived of the rigbtof choosing oUr Legisla- tive Representatives. From all that I have seen written, or heard for and against the universal right of suffrage, I must declare its reasonableness to be founded on the im- mutable bases of truth and justice. As to Annual Par- liaments, they appear to have been in practice at certain periods of our history ; the frequency of Parliaments would form the best pledge for the good behaviour of the Representatives, and which, together with the immense number of voters, would effectually put it out of the power of the most extensive fortune to bribe ; conse- quently, a stop would be put to those outrageous scenes of riot and drunkenness, which the present system of Borough Election occasion. This then is what I mean by Radical Reform, viz. every man, including soldiers and sailors, not upon foreign service, arrived at the age of twentv- one years, not incapacitated by crime or insanity, to have a light to give his vote annually for his Repre- sentative in the House of Commons. This Reform we claim as perfectly congenial to the spirit of the British Constitution, and consonant' to its practice in its best times. We regard such a Reform as the only means of effectually closing up that fountain of political corrup- tion, whence our ' manifold calamities have so copiously flowed. Then would our political fabric, our far- famed Constitution, so well calculated in its purity to consoli- date the affections, and to promote the interests of all, do away the very possibility of plots and conspiracies ; for in every citizen in would find a defender. I will here eonc'ude in the words of JUNIUS— 44 This is not the cause of faction, or of party, or of any individual, but the com- mon interest of every man in Britain." A FRIEND OF REFORM. To the EDITOR of the ABERDEEN CHRONICLE. SIR, AN acquaintance happened to call upon mca few even- ings ago, just as I was perusing the annual report of the Shipwrecked Seamen s Fund, as it appeared in your paper. Our conversation naturally turned on the propriety of such occasional reports, from the Managers of all Insti- tutions that receive Contributions from the Public ; and this led my friend to complain, that the Managers of the Infirmary and Lunatic Asylum, who first began the prac- tice, had neglected it for the last two years, although, during that very period, besides the usual annual Collec- tions for the Infirmary, there have been other two Collec- tions at all the Church Doors in the City, for an addi- tional Fund to the Sister Institution, the Lunatic Asylum. As I have a very good opinion of the Managers of those Institutions, I endeavoured to excuse them, by saying, that perhaps, during the last two years', they had had oc- casion to transact no business' beyond the usual routine, with a detailed account of which it was unnecessary to trouble the public. But my friend informed me, that so | far was this from being the case, that, during the period ; alluded to, no less than four or five principal servants to I the institution had been elected— that considerable addi- , tions had been made to the buildings of the Infirmary— | that a New Lunatic Asylum had been built altogether— I and that, in consequence, a considerable sum of money had been borrowed by the one Institution for the use of the other— so that, during the period in question, more business of importance had been transacted, than during any two years previous. Still partial to the Managers, I caught hold of the last clause, and maintained that they had been so occupied with important business, as. to have had no time left them for informing the Public of what was going on. But I must confess, Mr. Editor, that by that time, I myself also began to feel dissatisfied, that the annual reports had been withheld ; and resolved to apply to you, as 1 now do, to see if you, or any of your Corres- pondenK can find a better excuse than I, for the Mana- gers of the Infirmary.— I am, your constant reader, Aberdeen, March 8, 1821. G. A. atid decency is re- moved, were brought into operation. The degree of litefafy talent whidi was displayed in this publica- tion, teas sufficient to* raise it above Contempt, and to make its portentous immorality the more strik- ing. Mr. Scott wasthe Editor of Baldwins Lon- don Magazine, which he conducted with great abili- ty. In a series of articles which he published in that Journal he took to pieces and exposed the whole of the machinery of Blackwood's publication ; and, by merely bringing together the instances dfits falsehood and malignity, he presented such t\ picture — so undeniably correct, but vet so disgusting, that personsof ail literary sectsand political parties started from it, with abhorrence. Of the scoundrel system of this Magazine Mr. Scott believed Mr. Wilson, ( who, during the continuance of this publication, had been elected Professor of Moral Philosophy at Edinburgh, by the elose Corporation of that town) and Mr. John Gibson Lockhart, to Ixi the prime movers ; but he seemed to believe that more of the moral guilt rested on the latter than on the former. Under this- belief, he spoke of Mr. Lockhart in the terms which would suggest themselves to any ho- nourable mind, respecting a person w ho stood in Mr L.' s supposed situation. These articles were pubhsh- Magazines of Nov. 1, Dec. 1, and Ja- tier* seems to be uttl, ehaoce that' they could reocl. Rome before the A ustrians. There fs. however, no account to be depended upon ot the- march of the latter bevond the fron- tiers of the 1 uscai » States. The Courier Krancah says that a Proclamation, in the Latin language. Supposed to 71] T" 01 N3pK'S' , md circulated amongst . the Ruirganan regiments, which form part of the Austrian army in Italy. ed in the miary 1. It was no wonder that a man should not like to be held lip to tlie world in connection with such a publication. On the 10th of January, Mr. Christie waited on Mr. Scott in behalf of Mr. Lock- hart. Mr. Scott's statement of what followed that interview we have laid before the pub- lic. Mr. Scott would not consent to treat Mr. Loekhart as a gentleman, unless he previously dis- avowed his having received money from the manage- ment of B/ ackwood'$ Magazine, or having a pecuni- ary interest s the sde. This disavowal Mr- Lock- hart did not. \ hirik proper to give, and denied that lie was called upon in honour so to do. The affair had thus no issue. Statements and restatements fol- lowed ; in the course of which, Mr. Scott having conceived that offence was given him bv Mr. Chris- tie, the second of Mr. Lockhart, and a person, to whom, as a gentleman, he had no exception to make, the affair which ended in the death of Mr. Scott ensued. Mr. Lockhart, jjvee the termination of the cor- respondence with Mr. Scott, published a disavowal nearly similar to that required bv Mr. Scott. If he has been wrongfully accused, we consider him to be a most unfortunate and ill advised man. lie should have been eager to disavow all the conncction with Blackwood, which he could in truth disclaim, even if he were not hound in honour so to do. We sub- join the following remarks of the Editor of The Scotsman, whose opinion, from his knowledge of the reports at Edinburgh, is entitled to peculiar at- tention : The natural fruits of the Blackwood system are now becoming palpable. It is nearly three years since it was prophesied, that the ordinary business of life could not proceed if it became general," and that we " should have nothing but a perpetual round of cudgelling, duelling* and stabbing, if every weak, odd, or even vicious private act of every individual were to be published, with all the cir- cumstances. of name, time, and place, for the general amusement." To us it appeared strange that the indigna- tion of society in general was not much sooner roused against the atrocities of Blackwood's gang; but though j sometimes apparently slow, and, perhaps, inexplicable, 1 Providence never fails in the end to vindicate itself to man. An awful retribution most certainly awaits those, whoever they may be{ who have been the first to reduce abuse and slander to a system; and already we think, there are symptoms to be seen of an unequivocal nature that tbe retributive process is begun. But who will pity the in- dividuals who planted daggers in the heart in mere wan- tonness, and whose sole object it has been to calumniate, FROM GEIiMJX PJl'EIiS. FRANK FORT, Feb. 28.— It is reported here, that we may soon expect the publication of a declaration of the Court of Russia, and of a similar piece from the Court of Berlin, relative to the affairs of Naples. It is event stated that the Russian Manifesto has been already received by M. d'Anstett, the Envoy from that Power. The first act of the Plenipotentiaries at the Congress of Laybach was the decision of the allied Sovereigns on the affairs of Naples. Papers are expected to appear of equal importance with that which is probably going to occasion, a war in the South of Italy. Tlie accession of Russia to the projects of Austria, gives rise to very serious conjec- tures. It is probable we shall soon learn on what sub- | jects the Congress has come to any final resolutions. A declaration ofthe Sovereigns relative to the affairs of Spain, is spoken of, and also that a Russian Envoy is commis- sioned to go and notify it to the present Government of that country. It is much doubted whether this declara- l tion will be received by the Cortes. • j I NSPRUCK, Feb. 22.— Tbe Swiss papers speak of ' the arrest of several suspected persons at Bologna and other towns of the Roman States. BERLINS Feb. 17— It is said that Prince Mettcr- nich and Count Bernstroff are perfectly agreed in their views of the present state of Europe, and it is though that a Prussian lXjch* ratiou against the Neapolitans, drawn up in tire same spirit as that of Austria, will be published immediately. j There is no mention at present of the publication of a j Constitution for Prussia, and many persons fear that the events which took place in the course of last year will cause it to be indefinitely deferred.

BRUSSELS, March 5.— Since five o'clock yesterday afternoon five couriers have passed through here : three from Holland for Paris, and two from Paris going to Ilollaud. A British Cabinet Messenger was dispatched for London. LEIPSIC, Feb. 8,— A prohibition has been issued against printing any thing here respecting the deliberation of the last Polish Diet; this prohibition is not confined to writings in the Polish language, but includes also those published iti German. It is reported that search has been made to discover an " Appeal to the Poles," which is supposed to have been printed clandestinely. If such a writing really exist, it is certain that it has not been ex- posed to sale by any of our booksellers. VIENN A, Feb. 21. — It is long since the public here have been so much interested about foreign affairs, as they now are about those of Naples, which are the prevailing subject of all conversations. It is generally believed, that the Constitutional Government will exert all its means and all the forces at its disposal, in order to obtain as fa- vourable terms as possible. The Sovereigns, we know, intended to remain at Laybach, till they learnt the effect produced at Naples by the dispatches entrusted to the Duke de Gallo ( we have just learnt the arrival of a Courier at Laybach on the 16th, with the first answer to the King's letter from Laybach). If the Neapolitans should submit to the condition imposed on them, the Sovereigns would go to Italy, and the Emperor Alexander is said to have expressed his intention of going not only to Milan, but even to Florence, Rome and Naples, if matters should be terminated amicably. In the —— " vilify, and traduce all who were mo^ t worthy of esteem, and to poison all the intercourse of society ? If there be any thing like cause and effect in morals— if moral agents be responsible for the consequences of their own acts— the conductors of Black wood's Magazine are chargeable with all that has happened to Mr. J. Scott— with his death, even, if that unfortunate event should result from his rett- contre- with Mr. Christie. For, to our minds, the whole chain t) f sequences appears to have been neec.- isari'y con- nected. We should have thought the elementary prin- ciples of our nature changed, indeed, if some one had not been generous enough, and bold enough, to resent, in the name of his kind, the indignities and offences com- mitted in the Blackwood school, against the best and worthiest of the community. And we now owe it to Mr. Scott— who has made himself the victim of a great public cause— to say. and we say it, not on our own authority, hut on that of honourable men who are conversant with affairs of honour-// W the reports iter e so prevalent, and the presnmptioiis so strong and pregnant, that Mr. Lockhart had a share in the management of Rlackwood'$ Ma- gazine, and the opinion ofthe infamy of that work so universal, as to render it necessary for Mr. Scott to insist upon a preliminary explanation. That he did so on serious grounds no one can doubt; and that he did not do so from any fear of meeting an honourable antagonist, of which we never doubted, is now, we trust, as unquestionably, as it has been too grievously, if not fatally^ established." Mr. Scott was a native of Aberdeen, in the Uni- versity of which city he received his education.— L pou coming to London, he held a place in the War Office, which he soon resigned. lie was afterwards conncctcd with various literary and political publi- cations. His i Visit to Paris,' and * Paris He- visited,' are well known ; and he had prepared dur- ng his residence m Italy, Observations on the Mo- ral and Political Character and Manners of the In- abitants of that interesting country, which, it is to be hoped, are in a state of arrangement lit to be presented to the world.— TravelUr. Kise, uie oo. ve- reigns will return to Vienna, and it is thought that King Ferdinand will be invited to reside for a time in the en- virons of this city. But at the same time, a plan is spoken of to conduct King Ferdinand with a sufficient force to Sicily. Eetters from Florence state, that considerable dissatis- faction had already manifested itself among the Austrian troops. A panic was prevalent, tfaat they were going upon a war of assassination, into a country famous for the op- portunities it gave to ambuscade, and for all the secret modes of murder. Inured as they are to implicit obedi- ence, and acting in general like automatons, they are ex- tremely superstitious; and the alarm of the stiletto and of | poison, though dreadful to think of and totally unfounded, 5 may become so general, as to make their Commanders hesitate as to their advance. CONGRESS OF LAYBACH. The following account of the form with which the sit- tings of this assembly have usually been conducted is ex- tracted from a letter recently received from Trieste: " The hours during which the deliberation? of Congress are conducted are generally from ten at night tilt three in the morning. The doors are kept close locked, and no person besides the members is suffered to be present, not even a secretary, that office being performed by Prince Metternich himself, who writes the protocols with his own hand. In addition to those functions, this distinguished statesman a so acts, not merely as the censor, but as the editor of the Lay bach Gazette, for which he is under- stood to compose the matter, thus giving whatever colour he may think fit to the conferences* The greater propor- tion of the sittings has been transacted in the sole presence ofthe Ministers of Austria, Russia, and Prussia, those of England and Naples having been excluded.

A paper of the 3d announces the ariival of intelli- gence of the capture of Lima by" Lord Cochrane, derived from the Bermuda Gazette of the loth January, which says, 44 that intelligence had been received at Jamaica from the Spanish Main, and across the Isthmus of I) a- rien, from the South Seas, of Lord Cochrane's having captured the city of Lima, - aft^ r a tremendous resistance, during which four of his Lordship's vessels were sunk.— The particulars of this splendid victory had not been re- ceive:! ; but its immediate consequences had been, to in- j.. _ . < • - ~ - • duce the people of Panama to ,1 eel, re for independence and the kingdom of Quito to shake., ff'ibe Sp-, nK fce » It is not improbable, however this i the « « r I - since, and was proved to have been unfounded by the receipt of adviccs from Lima, several weeks later than the ru- moured successof Lord Cochrane.

FROM FRENCH PAPERS. PARIS, March 5.— Yesterday, the 2d, there was a Secret Committer of < he Chamber of Deputies, in which the Minister for Foreign Affairs was called upon to let the nation know the situation in which France stands with respect to the kingdom of Naples. M. Etienoe and Generals Fov and Sebastiani delivered speeches which were in the highest degree interesting, and'which affected the whole Chamber. The Minister was hard pushed, but persisted in keeping silence, and would not give any in- formation upon our situation with respect to Naples and Spain ; he pleaded the Charter as his authority, which gives to the King the right of making war and peace.— The speeches delivered in this important sitting are going to be printed. IM. Pasquier has said in private, that France had signed nothing hostile against Naples, hut that it had only consented to pay down to Austria 15 millions, which were due at more distant terms. MARCH 5.— The King held his usual Court on Sun- day, amongst those present were the Spanish and Neapo- litan Ambassadors. There is no further intelligence in these Journals res- pecting the march of the Austrian army, but a Turin ar- ticle expresses a belief that hostilities would commence about the 25th ult. The Gazette de France quotes a pri- vate letter from Naples of the 15th ult. stating, that after a long Sitting of the Parliament, in which they received and discussed the Report of the Committee on the ulti- matum of the Allied Powers, the Prince Regent at the head of the Members, went forth from the llall of the Sittings, and pronounced, before the assembled people, a formal declaration of war- against Austria and the coalesced Powers.

Friday, March 2. SCOTS APPEILS.— DINGWALL V. GARDINER. This day their Lordships pronounced judgment in this case. The circumstances out of which it arose were as fol- low :— In the year 1814, the respondent, who is minister of the parish of Aherdour, in Aberdeenshire, applied to the Presbytery of Deer, within which the parish is situate, pray- ing that the heritors should be ordained to build him a new- manse. as the one he occupied was in a ruinous condition. The appellant, as one of the heritors of the parish, con- tended that the act of 16( 53, under which the respondent claimed, was merely a temporary measure to meet, the exi- gency of the moment, and without any view to establish a general rule applicable to the future. There w is not a word in the act applicable to the case of rebuilding, when the manse, once built, had become ruinous, or to a second repair, at the expence of the heritors. The respondei % maintained, that although the act of Parliament restricted' the sum to be allowed for a manse to L. 1000 Scots, the Legislature only alluded to those new manses which were to be built immediately after the date of that act. The same act provided that every minister should have a " competent manse," and from this i' was evidently not the intention of the Legislature to impose any absolute limitation with respect to the sum to be allowed.

Mr. CURWENrose to call the attention of the House io that subject. It was not necessary to inform the House, that such was the extent of distress that prevailed all over the country, even in the most favoured districts, that it was quite impossible the country could remain longer in its present condition, if something were not done to relieve the dreadful agricultural distress. There were various objections to the Horse Tax ; it was most vexatious in its operations, for it falls with mo. t weight on those who are least able to bear it. There were several other resources to which the Chancellor of the Exchequer might resort for increasing the revenue ; there was the Game Tax, and an increase might be made on pleasuie horses ; on tallow, too, there might be a tax imposed, which would l> e a great increase. The Hon. Member concluded by J was a difference of 20 per cent, in favour of the latter, ceoded to state tlie several I'nftM^ df expenditure for the year 1320, and the ' income l'iabVl^ pgbe applied to meet tiiat ex p e n d 11 lire, co m p 1 a i n i n g. of tlfe'dstn pi ex nature of the accounts as laid before the House^ Bgter^ s far as he could collect,, the whole arriount of expe^ i^^, for last jj year was I, i2G 763, SG0, for the civil and. militat^ sfahlish- mehts of the country. " In the year 1792. the \ vfilrile_ ex- penditure, civil and military, including the interest national debt, was L. 15.709,000 ; and the estimated ™ come, to meet this expenditure, amounted to L. J 6 212.000. The sinking fund of 1821 had been broken in upon by the Chancellor, ofthe Exchequer, to the amount of five' millions. Iti i792, Ireland was a separate kingdom, and her expenditure for the army, navy, ordnance,. and mis- cellaneous services, amounted to L. 1.200,000. In 1792. the expencesof thearmy, navy, ordnance, and miscellaneous services of Great Britain, had amounted to somewhat more than four millions.; and, in 1820, the expellees of the army alonehad been nine millions ; and the whole had amounted to L. l 9.303,300. Such an expenditure must be cut down, or it would be impossible for the country ever to go to war. The difference between the expenditure of 1792 and 1820 was equal to fifteen millions. There was also a great percentage in the collection ofthe revenue The expence of collecting the Customhouse duties amounted in Great Britain to 13 per cent, and in Ireland to 23.— A Committee had been appointed to inquire into the dif- ferent branches of the public expenditure, by whose la- bours some good had been effected, though it had been appointed by tlie Crown, and not chosen by that House. That Committee ( termed the Committee of Finance) had made a report in June 1817, that L. l7,550,000 was suf- ficient to cover the expence of the army, n< Jvy. ordnance, and miscellaneous services; yet. in 1S18. the estimates had risen L. l. 900.000 above the report ofthe Committee. He conceived that, in the estimates for the present year, the Chancellor of the Exchequer was bound to keep with- in the report of the Committee. It ought also to be kept j in view, that between the prices of 1817 and 1821, there Mr. Lushmgton, Mr. " B. Wilbraham. and Mr. Mansfield, and rejected bv a majority of 86 to 53.

PARLIAMENTARY REFORM. Mr. LAMYiTON said,, it was decidedly his intention to bring on his trtfjtioti on the subject of Parliamentary ; Reform on the 10th of April. 11 is object would, as last j year, be the extension of the. right of. voting to all house- j holders paying direct taxd^, to abolish all decayed Boroughs, and to restore Trie$^$ lftL Parliaments. A GRICU LTU R A I^ H* X HESS. l\ Tr. GOOCII rose to move for the appointment of a • Committee to inquire into the distress Of tlfe agricultu- > ral interest., After some observations, he concluded by moving, that the " several petitions which had beeHi^ ure- scnted to the House respecting the present state of Tvgrk culture be referred to a Select Committee, to inquire, into i the allegations thereof, and to report thereon to the ; House. The motion, after much debate was agreed to, ! moving " That instructions should be given to the Com- mittee to provide the means to repeal the duty on draught horses solely employed in husbandry." Fhe CHANCELLOR ofthe EXCHEQUER com- plained of the manner in which the subject had been brought forward without notice, but he imagined there must be some misapprehension on the subject; the matter now to be brought under the consideration of the Commit- tee was for the renewal of a mitigated and reduced rate, • which was imposed about three years ago ; and, there- fore, to go into the consideration of the tax itself now would be highly irregular. He was not aware of any substitute that he could propose for it. and could see no probability of such an expectation being realised if it were held out. so that there should be for the present year a reduction of a million below the report of the Committee. He should state the income of the country at 120 millions annually, on which a per centage of 45 § was paid, being 25 per cent, on the interest ofthe national debt, and 22', on in- direct taxation, making in the aggregate 45 § per cent.— With such accumulated burthens to pay, the agriculturist was not in a better state now than he had been in 1792, and was in fact paying all the increase above that period out of his capital. At the same time he was firmly of opinion that nothing but absolute bankruptcy should oc- casion a breach of faith w. t'. i the public creditor.

In the event of any change in the Government of the country, he looked to no other place than what he then occupied. But if Ministers were not disposed to make the retrenchments which the state of the country imperiously demanded, they ought to give place to others that would. He should shape his motion so as to obtain the assent of the agriculturist, and of all who were anxious for the honour of the country. The Hon.

After some conversation, the House divided— For Mr. Cur wen's motion 65— Against it 122— Majority 57. TRANSFER OF STOCK. Mr. CURWEN said, he never rose with more painful feelings than he now did, accused as he was of showing in the motion, which it was his duty to make, little regard to private property and public credit. lie, however, did not admit the justice of the charge ; but it was fair to avow, that in moving for an account of the Stock transferred at the Bank of England in the last ten years, his direct pur- pose was to point it out as an object of taxation. The first Loan Act which passed in the reign of William and Mary, contained a clause in which it was said, that the annuity paid to the public creditor should be exempt from all burdens. In this he doubted whether Parliament had not exceeded its power, for there was an inherent necessity in the nature of all Governments, that property should pay for the protection afforded it. He contended that even if there bad been no instance in which a tax had been imposed on it. it could not claim an exemption ; but the fat was, it had been subjected to the Property Tax, and Vas now subject to the Legacy Duty. There were grave authorities which supported him in saying that it should take its shaxe Ofthe burdens of the country. In the case of Clerketiwell, in the reign of George I. the Judges de- clared, that property in the Funds might be made available to the support of the Poor. And in a case from Norwich, Lord Ellenborough distinguished money in the funds from money lent on bond ; and stated, that it would be chargeable with poor rates, but for this circumstance, that it could not be shown in any instance to be visible property, arising within a particular parish But, if the fundholders could plead an exemption, they should be the first class to foregoit, as it was so much their interest to encourage the payment of taxes, from which they derived so much. Jt was said, it would be fair to tax the fundholder to a certain degree; but it was asked, where would it stop? . Tt would stop where it should ; for he hoped the House would never tax any class beyond its fair proportion. It . was not sound reasoning to resist a fair and equal tax, lest an unequal one should be imposed. As he thought, there . was a fair claim in justice and expediency that the Funds should he subject to taxation, he did not shrink from the odium of avowing his Opinion. He moved for an Account of all Transfers of Stock at the Bank for the last ten years ( except that transferred to the Commissioners of the Sinking Fund), distinguishing each year, and each species of Stock. The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER said, he should oppose the motion, on the broad grounds ofthe basis which the Hon Member had laid for it. He was far from wishing to charge the Hon. Member with aiming at the destruction of public credit and private property, but he was compelled to say that the pioposition of the Hon. Member was fully deserving of all the reprobation . that could be bestowed on it. The Hon. Member had confounded two very distinct" things— a tax on the funds as such, and a tax on th& funds in common with all other property. The furidholdi? rs had submitted to the Property Tax without a murmur, but to subject them to special taxation would be a violation of the faith which had been pledged to them. The question had been much confused by the assertion that the debt had been contracted iti a de- preciated currency. In the years in which the currency was depreciated sums were borrowed not to a greater amount than one- fourh ofthe debt, and this was so mixed \ ip with the rest ( as no one who purchased stock really knew in what year his particular portion was created), that it was impossible to trace it. Any tax that was im- posed on the funds would less affect the rich fundholder than any other. His capital was speedily transferred, and would be transferred, on the first intimation ofthe inten- tion of Parliament, to foreign funds, where he could get a higher interest for his money—( Hear !)— from which lie was now withheld only on account of the supposed superior security and faith of this country. At New York or Paris he might laugh at our taxes. The alarm would soon extend beyond him. The word with all pro- prietorsof stock would \ xesauvc < jui pent. and transfer must soon stop for want of buyers. Then it would be that the Cries of distress and ruin would be heard from the orphan and widows, and from thousands who depended on the funds alone for their support. The good faith of this ! country had been its surest stay in times of danger, and tiie measure which would rob England of its public credit, would deprive it of its best support. The motion was then negatived. A debate of considerable length took place on a motion by Dr. Lushington for an Address to his Majesty, tore- move Thomas Ellis, Esq. from his office as a Master of Chancery in Ireland, which, on a division, was negatived t> y a majority of 112 to 52. Tuesday, March 6, ECONOMY QF EXPENDITURE, !\ fr. MA BERLY rose to bring forward his motion on this subject. He was persuaded nothing but eco- nomy could benefit the agricultural or any other class, and he hoped he should have the support of. all persons in the House on that subject. He would not ask Ministers to repeal taxes, unless he could shew the expenditure could be reduced, He was persuaded a reduction to the amount of L. 5,000,000 might be made in the public ex- penditure ; anil if the present Ministers would not under- take to govern the country under such retrenchments,' they should retire, and suffer others who were ready to under- take it to supply their places. He was decidedly of opi- nion that faith should be kept with the public creditor, but this could only be done bv economy. And he would * endeavour to point out the branches in which such eco- nomj' might take place. To do this, he should take, as be considered he fairly might, the years 1792 and 1820, and compare them. He should do this under four heads m— first, the income of 1792, and then the expenditure for the same year ; next, he should take the expenditure of 1820, and the. income. The Hon. Member then pro- Making a total sum of And whereas it appears that the supplies of 1820 have exceeded the amount recommended by the Committee of Finance in 1817, by L. l, 900,000, it is therefore expedient' to take measures to prevent the expences of the present year from exceeding that recommended by the Committee of Finance in 1817, and recommends for that purpose a reduction of 50 per cent, on all inhabited houses and windows." The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER ob- served. that though the notice of tbe Hon. Gentleman's motion related exclusively to the duties on houses and windows, no mention whatever had been made of those duties in his speech. It could not be imagined that he v ould. on the sudden reply to all the statements of the Hon, Gentleman. In 1792, the taxes had been lower than they had been since the American war ; but soon after the close of that year an increase of the expenditure had taken place. On the comparison of the expenditure of 1792 with that of 1820, the sum of five millions was to be struck for expences which had no existence in 1792.— Since that period the country had nineteen additional co- lonies to defend ; and those additional colonies had the effect ofinereasigg the expenditure at home. He must also state, that the present was not the proper time for the motion ; and- that the Hon. Gentleman seemed to have begun at the wrong end. As the annual votes would come soop before Parliament, that would be the proper time for inquiry. A great source of expence had been created by the pensions to officers, and the half- pay list, but to such expence no man could object who knew how nobly it had been earned. As in a period when the articles of life were dear, the allowances were not increas- ed ; so they should not be diminished in a season of cheapness. In the estimates that would be submitted to the House, it would be found that a reduction of above a million had taken place, and that the total amount would hardly exceed the report of the Committee of 1817. The income of the country was 200 millions, and not 120, as I had been stated by the Honourable Gentleman ; that had \ been the same in which the property tax had been charged j in different proportions, and that tax had not affected the j income from labour. Tho Hon. Geutleman had afforded ' no explanation of the practical part of his motion, nor i why he had selected the tax on horses, as that tax bore ! but in a very small degree on the agricultural interest. — The amount of the tax was L. 3,000,000 ; the duties were collected at a small expence, and the expence of collect- ing the half would be almost equal to that upon the whole. The tax was also paid by the higher classes, and. if taken off, there would be no great ready money taxes. In 1792, a great part of the salaries had been paid by fees and perquisites, the amount of which it was impossible accurately to ascertain. But those had been all done away, and the whole had been now brought under the eye of Parliament. He did not say that no reduction could be made ; for a diminution of expence, to the amount of L. 130.000 annually, had taken place in the management of the Customs. He should meet the motion of the Hon. Gentleman, by moving the previous question. After a long debate, the House divided, for the motion, 83— Against it, 109— Majority, 26. Wednesday, March 7. Mr. JAMES presented a petition from Nathan Broad- hurst, confined in Lancaster jail. The petitioner had been taken up on a charge of treason, but was tried for a misdemeanor, and sentenced to two years imprisonment. The petitioner stated, that his great offence was- that of advocating the opinions entertained by a certain Noble Lord before his accession to office, that of Parliamentary Reform. His letters had all been opened ; he was con- fined in a damp cell, where there was neither chair nor table ; the jailor was most severe, and the petitioner was compelled to work, or to be deprived of part of his al- lowance. Mr. IIOPcNBY defended the character of the jailor, and observed, that the rules of the prison had been de- termined by that humane Judge, ( Judge Bailey.) The power of opening the letters was essential to the good go- vernment of the jail. He, as a Visiting Magistrate, was well acquainted with the prison, and particularly he knew the cell alluded to by the petitioner; and it was as dry and free from damp as any cell in the prison, and no prison could be more dry or healthful than Lancaster Castle was. The petition was then brought up and read. It farther stated, that all newspapers were refused him ; that he had been condemned to a place of peculiar degrada- tion, called the Ditch, and laden with irons 16 days; but they were eventually removed by order of the Ma- gistrates and physicians. On the motion « bat it do lie on the table. I, oid STANLEY and Mr. SUMNERopposed it. and bore testimony to the general good conduct of the jailor. Mr. Serjeant ONSLOW also opposed the reception of the petition, couched as it was in most slanderous lan- guage. Sir II. Wilson, Mr. Hobhouse, Mr. Lockhart, Mr. Bernall, Mr. Lambton, Mr. F. Palmer, Mr. Hutchin- son, Mr. Creevey, Mr. Ben net, Mr. Calcraft, supported the petition, which was. objected to by Mr. C. Wynn, the House adjourned, Friday, March 9. Mr. WALLACE brought up the report of the Com- mittee on Foreign Trade— Ordered to be printed. Sir R. WII SON gave notice, that on the 20th inst. he would move for the production of Sir W. A'Court's letter to the Duke de G. illo, on the subject of British neutrality. BREACH OF PRIVILEGE. Mr. S. WORTLEY complained ofa breach of privi- lege in the Morning Chronicle of 26th February, in the title which it gave to a list of the majority against the reception of Mr. Davidson's petition, and as the news- paper expressed it, " in favour of Lord Castlereagh's admonition to the people of England not to trouble and take up the time of the House with petitions." This was a gross libel, a false libel ; there had been no such pro- position. and no such vote. If the proceedings of the House were noticed, it was important that they should be given fairly and correctly ; and, under all the circum- ; stances, lie called upon the House to vindicate its dignity, and therefore moved, that J. Lambert, the printer, do attend at the bar on Monday next. Mr. G. BEN NET was glad that the Hon. Member had plucked up courage enough to submit his own com- plaints to the House instead of employing some other Gentleman, as in the last instance ( Mr. Hobhouse's pamphlet.) He ( Mr. B.) believed the statement in the Morning Chronicle to be substantially true, and he was , happy that it had been made. Why were any persons \ hurt at the expose? Were they ashamed of what had passed ? Were they ashamed of its going forth that they had voted against the reception of the petition, and even j against its being read ? He moved as an amendment that the House do adjourn. After a long discussion, tbe House divided— For the motion, ... ,.. 155 Against it, ... ... ... 54 Majori ty. ... 121 While strangers were excluded, Mr. Lambton moved Previous Question, and another discussion took place The followrng'^ ejtefc Members, and Members connect- ed with Scotland, vixpj^ ivmotion of Miv Plunkett for the appointment of a Cbni^ iftee to consider of the laws affecting the Roman Catholics : -- MAJORITY Abercrombie, Hn.

Urling and Co.: in the Strand,) for improving- Tin re ad er • Yarn; in infringement;' df the Patent he had Obtained for. the exclusive use of. that Indention. The Letters Patent werq obtained in November, IS 17 ; and tkey stated that the object of the Improvement wias to remove the- projecting fibres from - every , description' of Thread or Yarh. and' render it stronger, smoother,, and finer. The Plaintiff had expended, in eXperirftftntSs anterior to the completion of his Invention, Five Thousand PoiiFids,. an^ upwards ;.< and, from the date of the Patent till the present time, had been in theundisturbedtfossessiori and useofthe Invention, with the exception- that, for some time past, the Defend* an ts had been secretly . u^ ing it. which,- if- they could do safely, it was very natural they would ; for the Plaintiff's Invention, had obtained- a celebrity ofa very distinguish- ed kind amongst those who were. fanciers of Lace under the nartie of " Ufling's new Improved Lace.", It. Was a subject of very great profit to the Plaintiff; and his Lord- ship might form . spine Idea of i; t, s - excellence^ as her late Majesty had granted to Urling. & Co permisson to supply her exclusively with the Lace, her Majesty being a very, good judge of specimens of the kind. - This appointment, together with other circumstances which had given a- de- cided superiority to " Urling sLace." had induced. the at- tempt of the Defendants to hifringe upon Plaintiff's Pa- tent.. , The Plaintiff was not able, for some time, to, bring it home to. the Defendant; but in the course of the prc- v sent month of February, in consequence of his suspicions, he placed a ladder, at night, against a window of the De- fendants' Manufactory, and there very ! clearly saw the Defendants carrying on the process of Improvement in-, vented by him. This was confirmed by four other persons* and certainly, the very midnight. mode of, carrying on tho work was strong evidence of concealment, and an inte'i-. tion of pirating the Invention. His Lordship having ex- amined several specimens of the Lace and Thread of which it is manufactured, granted the Injunction. Hamilton, Lord A. Warrender, Sir G- MINORITY. Fairlie. Sir W. C.

The CIIANCELLORoftheEXCHEQUER mov- ed the Order of the Day for the House resolving itself into a Committee of Supply. Mr. CRF2KVEY must oppose the motion. Nume- rous petitions had been presented to that House, com- plaining of distress, and yet the only two motions, viz. that of the Member for Abingdon ( Mr. Maberly), and. the Member for Cumberland ( Mr. Cuvwen), with a view to alleviate that distress, had been negatived by the House. He should move as an amendment, thattl e House should take into its consideration the circumstance of Members of that Flouse holding offices under the Crown, and that to the amount of ^? i50,000, atid should move a resolution that an independent House of Commons was essential to the redress of the grievances of the people. Lord PALMERSTON thought the Hon. Gentle- man had made this motion to obstruct the whole march and machinery of the Government. Tbe House would consider that the Mutiny Act expired on the 24th of this month; and unless the number of men were voted the Mutiny Bill must be stopped. He considered this as a record of the Flon. Gentleman's opinion, which he held eleven years ago, of the necessity for Parliamentary Re form. Mr. CALCRAFT could not assent to this motion i for, hostile as he was to the present Administration, he could not consent to clog the wheels of Government; for • lie knew the Mutiny Bill must be renewed. Sir J. NEWPORT and Mr. iiUSKISSON should vote against the motion, because it would interrupt the public business. The House divided— For the motion of Mr. Creevey, 58— Against, it 172— Majority, 154. Lord PALMERSTONE then moved that the House should go into the Committee ; but, after some observa- tions from Mr. Hume, and other Members, which our limits will not at present permit us to detail, it was re- solved that Lord Palmerston should postpone his state- ment till Monday.

Wednesday, the new Tariff was received from Russia, and we are sorry to say that it is more unfavourable even than was apprehended. The duty on the import of ma- nufactured sugar is advanced to a rate that will operate as a prohibition.

The cause of Parliamentary Reform, we are happy to find, is making considerable progress in every part of the country, and amongst all classes of his Majesty's sub- jects, from the humblest individual in the State to the roost distinguished Peer of the Realm. In the course of the present spring the County of York will, we believe assemble under the auspices of the wisest, the most pa- triotic, and the most elevated men in the county, to pro- nounce the opinion of its inhabitants. That the House of Commons, as at present constituted, does not fully and fairly represent the nation in Parliament, and that it is highly expedient to obtain such a Reform in the Constitu- tion of that House, as will render it an effectual repre- sentation of tbe people"— To give effect to the prayer of a Petition grounded on these views of national policy will be proper to pray also for the removal of men from power who are the pledged adversaries of all efficient Re form, both Parliamentary and economical ; and for a sys- tem of Government, which, by conciliating tile confidence and securing the affections ofthe great body ofthe nation, can dispense with a large standing army in time of peace, and rule without the agency of Laws at variance with the J genius of a Constitution famed in every quarter of the \ world fur its enlightened spirit of freedom.—•( Leeds Mer- J curi/) 1 Mr. Sheriff Waithman has great credit for having inde- fatigably and successfully ascertained the innocence of an interesting youth, of the name of White, who was con- demned to death, and was ordered for execution on the 31st of January, on evidence that has been clearly dis- proved. lie was seized by a person in the crowd, at a fire in Wardour Street, as a pickpocket, an attempt heing made to rob the person of his watch, and this youth being near, was accused of the crime, A spectator who saw the attempt, justified the youth, but his evidence was not credited, as he was supposed to be an accomplice. The ingenuous conduct of young White, while in prison, and after his condemnation, made such an impression on Air. Sheriff Waitlnnan in his favour, that he exerted himself to discover the truth, as well as to learn all the particulars ofthe boy's family, connections, and previous character ; all of which turmd out most favourable— and finally, the fact of his innocence was put beyond a doubt by the alH davit of a respectable gentleman, who was wholly ignorant of White's unfortunate situation, but who, on being re- ferred to. deposed, that he saw the youth at the fire a few minutes before the at'. etnpt a: robbery, ami spoke to him ; at which time the youth was alone, evidently a mete spectator of the conflagration. The facts being verified to Lord Sldmoutb. the Wo thy Sheriff had the beartr'elt satisfaction of piocuriilg his .' ilnjesty's pardon, and of re storing the grateful youth to the b « sum uf bis family, Sligvie. do.

NFJV LIME. rpHE FARMER LIME COMPANY have JL received the first LIME of the season, and will continue to have a regular supply. This Company was formed some years ago, by numerous Farmers, for the purpose of obtaining / or themselves the best English I. itne at the cheapest rate ; and since then, the public have been served with better lime and at a less price than formerly. The Farmer Lime Company will always have the best lime, and dispose of it at tbe lowest price possible. . The arrangements which they have made enable them to lower the price this season. And they are confident that the public will always find it their interest to deal with them. The usual credit will be given, but those whochuse to buy with ready money will find it particularly advantageous to do so ; aud it is requested, that all who intend to fa- vour this Company with their orders, will be very Careful to direct their servants and others, carrying lime from them, " To the Farmer Lime Comjxmy"— as mistakes have frequently occurred, persons who conceived they were getting then lime from this Company not having done so. The Company are about to place their business at Kintore upon a different and more advantageous footing for their customers than formerly. In the meantime, a proper supply will be found there, and at Port Elphin- ston. Mr. JOHN GILL, the Company's late Manager, bas now no concern whatever with their business : — Mr. GEO. CllUICKSIlANK is the present Manager at Aberdeen; and SEBASTIAN DAVIDSON, Assistant. Cus- omers will please attend to this. ^ umnmrp of politics. AS it appears not at all improbable, that the King of Naples may accompany the invading Aus- trian army, and enter the Neapolitan territory as an enemy, we shall, ill that case, have an opportunity j of knowing the nature of the instructions given to our naval officer, commanding the squadron of observa- tion now in the Bay of Naples. Sir VV'. A " COURT declared, that the squadron would not interfere, un- less insult should be offered to the Royal Family ; and it will no doubt be held to be an insult, when hissubjeits meet him with arms in their hands, and resist his authority, as being ' himself under constraint and not a free ' agent. That the people of Naples have nothing to expect from the good will of the British Government is sufficiently apparent, froin the refusal of the request of some officers to have permission to volunteer for tiie defence of Naples ; and as our navy had the honour of conveying FER- DINAND on his way to the Convention of Lavbach, there to receive his instructions Irom METTKUNICH, it will afford no matter for surprize, should our squadron be found still farther serviceable in pro- moting the views of the Holy Alliance. It is true, that in Parliament the conduct oft be allied Sovereigns has been condemned as unjust in the extreme ; but Ministers possess strong powers of persuasion, an^ a well taught majority mav see matters iu a different point of view, when re; d or pretended expediency comes to be concerned. " 1 never think about the business before Parliament ( said a Member of the Honourable House some twentv- four years ago) Mr. PITT thinks for me ;" and perhaps the race of implicit believers in ministerial infallibility may not be quite extinct in the present day. Iu the mean time, it is certain, that Lord CASTLEUEAGH'S circular, declaring the neutrality of Great Britain, in as far as regards Naples, has excited no small surprize upon the Continent; as it was understood, according to a communication from Vienna, that the allied Sovereigns had assured themselves of the full co- operation of England, in putting down the new Neapolitan Constitution. With regardto Spun, the French Government has been most explicit, assuring the King and Government of Spain, that they will not in any way interfere with the constitu- tional system established in that cenmtry; farther adding, that the French territory or frontiers shall not he made use of by any power whatever, for the pur poses of hostility, or with a view to disturb the order established by an independent nation for lite manage- ment of its own local concerns. Is it possible, that the powers of Russia, Austria, and Prussia, are pursuing plans against the liberties of independent States, of w hich the French Government really dis- approves ? If so, an extraordinary and unexpected state of affairs may soon occur on the Continent; for report says, that the Emperor ALEXANDER is about to send a fleet into the Mediterranean, with an army ostensibly to act with the Austrians, but it is suspected, with ulterior views against tbe Otto- man Empire. Bv the latest accounts from Naples, the hostile armies were very nearly in contact on the 23d of last mouth, the Neapolitans having advanced into the Papal territory to meet the enemy. Whatever may be tbe issue of the contest, an excellent spirit has manifested itself amongst, the people of Naples, the news of the approach of the Austrian ® having been received in many places with demonstrations of joy, such as ringing of bells, firing guns, and the most enthusiastic and confident anticipations of vic- tory. In Spain, it appears that serious misunder- standing still exists between the Corte3 and their King, who had been, by letters of tbe 2d inst. pre- vented from appearing in public for some davs, bv the insults of the populace ; and on the opening of the Cortes on the Ist, he delivered a speech which excited great indignation, and it was feared would lead to some sanguinary commotion. That I* ER- DINAND has never been the sincere friend of the liberties of his country is sufficiently well known ; and he mav very probably have received encourage- ment from the allied Sovereigns, to attempt to pre- pare the Cortes for a recurrence to the ancient re- gime ; but there is too much information, as well as oublic spirit in Spain, to permit any rational hope of success in such an enterprtze. At the same time, that the Spanish revolution cannot be considered as being even now fully established. FOR MIRAMICHI DIRECT, THE FINE BRIG MARGARET, JAMES AIKEN, . MASTER, 22G Tons per Register.

The report of the surrender of Lima, to the In- dependents under Lord COCHRANE and General SAN MARTIN, although it has Ireen contradicted, comes from so many quarters, and so many concur in the principal facts, that we are ranch disposed to believe the capital of Peru, and indeed of South America, now in the hands of the Patriots. The first accounts were frotn New York, stating, that the news had been received in that city, both from the Bahama Islands and Isthmus of Darien ; and the Glasgow frigate, arrived at Portsmouth, from the Bay of Naples, brings the intelligence, that the day they left Gibraltar, information was received direct from Cadiz, that Lima had surrendered to Lord COCHRANE and General SAN MARTIN.— Should this intelligence be confirmed, the result will be most important to the cause of the Patriots. The acquisition of immense treasure— the great quantity of mihta. y stores— the ships of war in the harbonr of Callao— will enable them to prosecute the war with redoubled vigour, while the Rovalists are deprived of their principal resources. Such an event, happening when a Revolution is taking place in Portuguese South America, must tend to tile speedy establishment of Independence all ever that Continent, from the Isthmus of Daricu to Cape Horn. The proceedings in Parliament have of late been distinguished by a greater degree of liberality, than lias been observable in them for a good many years past. The claims of tile Roman Catholics, so ably advocated by Mr. PLUNKETT and other eminent speakers, appear to be now in a favourable train ; and tlie distressed situation of the conhtry is now admitted by- all, although a majority is still found to vote for a' most enormous military establishment, hitherto considered as altogether unnecessary in the time of profound peace. . The most singular feature of the present times is, that while all classes in so- ciety experience great distress, and their property is diminishing dav by day in value, the doctrine is still held, that faith must' inviolably lie kept with the Fundholder, who, amidst the general calamity, is said to have alone the right to escape all inconveni- ence, and stiller not the smallest loss. This doctrine, however, has fewer supporters than it had ; and in no long time it may be discovered, that there is noth- ing more sacred in , the property of the Fundholders, than in that of any other, part of the community. Whether a reduct ion of interest on the public debt shall be adopted, a3 the means of bringing the. Fund- holders to nearly the same condition as others, we have not the means of knowing ; but it would be too much to expect, that tlie country shall be sacrificed for their sake, and the onimjraired possession of their property. It appears to be now determined upon, that his Majesty is to visit Ireland next summer ; and several Noblemen have been apprized that he intends to honour their mansions with his presence. Slane Castle, on the Bovne, the seat of the Marquis CONYNGIIAM, and Elavnev Castle, in the county ofCavati, the seat of Lord BLAYNEY, are already mentioned ; and it is believed, he will proceed through a considerable part of Ulster. Next summer, ac- cording to common report, fie intends to visit Scot- land, so as to make himself generally acouainted with the appearance of the countries over which he holds sway.

Frotn day to day. we are furnished with incidents in- teresting to the public, which we take great pleasure in laying before them, with every accuracy in our power. We cannot omit to mention, the high estimation we have formed of the Panorama of Waterloo r it requires 110 re- commendation, it has already gained the interest of our citizens so much, as totally to exceed our most sanguine expectations. To those who have an alliance to that memorable battle, we earnestly invite their presence to such a meritorious representation, which, in our opinion, surpasses any thing of the kind we ever witnessed. " Of Scotia, see thy sons in warfare striae* " While man to man in combat seem alive. The Earl of FIFE, before he set out this season for Lon- don, generously ordered 70 barrels of coals to be distri- buted among the most necessitous in tbe too n of Turriff. Last winter also, the sufferings of the poor iu that place were greatly alleviated by a similar donation from his Lord- ship, as well as by a libera! allowance of meal and money from the same noble and truly benevolent individual. On Sunday evening, about 8 o'clock, some villains con- trived to enter a shop in North Street, by a back window, and carried off about £ 2 in copper. The money was'riot in the till, but in one of the shop- drawers; from which circumstance, it is supposed, they had made their obser- vations on Saturday evening, at which time the shop- keeper placed the money there, for safety, before shutting his shop. He was only absent from his premises about 10 minutes, during which the robbery was committed. NAVAL INTELLIGENCE. The Eltick, M Lean, from Rio Janeiro-; Glory.

MELANCHOLY SHIPWRECK. It is with much regret we have to state tbe almost total loss on this coast, of the nhalefishing ship the Hebe, of Hull, Capt. Cozens. The Ilebe left Hull on Tuesday the 6th inst. and saw 110 land after passing Whitby ; but, on Friday evening the 9th inst. about 8 o'clock, while run- ning under the single reefed top- sails and fore- sail, with a strong gale from S. S. E. the vessel struck, it is supposed, on the Girdleness, near this harbour. Tbe ship was going between 7 and 8 knots, and tbe shock hav- ing unshipped and broke her rudder, and damaged the vessel, she became quite unmanageable, and drifted to the northward, where she went aJiore, about three mii, .5 to the southward of the Ythan. Of the crew, M2 in number), 28 got to land, about midnight, in threo boats. On endeavouring to draw the last boat again to the vessel, the rope broke, when those remaining on board, 14 in mfmber, including the Master, were left for a length of time, as it were, to their fate, tin re appearing no farther attempt to have been made for their preservtv- tion, until after the vessel broke up, which happened, about .5 o'clock in the morning. A most distressing . scene, ltow presented itself; this unfortunate pari of tbt^ crew, being now exposed to tbe utmost danger, were seen clinging chiefly to the chains, & c. on a piece of the st. r- hoard side of the wreck, in which melancholy situation, tliev remained for four long hours, frequently coveted by. the breakers. It being now evident, that they were on the point of resigning themselves to a watery grave, somu fruitless ill conducted attempts were made to get off it boat to their assistance, when, about nine o'clock, A. is. five of tbe unfortunate seamen were swept off by the waves, and sunk in the merciless ocean. At this awful crisis, some country people, under the direction of, and accom- panied by, Mr. JAM£ S Svitn and Mr. GREKS: manning a . boat, with the most laudable humanity and iiltrepioity, pushed off from Uje shore, and happily succeeded iu rescuing the remaining nine, when nature uassolar ex- hausted, that they cot, Id not for ten minutes longer have stood the unequal conflict with the elements. The five who suffered were Zteliurluh Iloruby, cooper of the ship, who, we grieve to say. has left a widow ami nine children; Francis Smith, a lad; Elah Pearson and Robert Laing,: Irelenging to Yarmouth; and Nicholas J'. ign- mouth, a boy. The bodies of the three former were soon after found, and on Monday were decently interred in the Church- vard of Belhelvie. Tiie Hebe, which is about 9 years old, was a ship of 3G4 tons per register, formerly iu Ibe East India trade, and had been fitted out in the most complete manner for the whale fishery.' to which this was only her second voyage. The vessel is nearly a total loss, the whole toast King strewed with her wreck. Three boats, a few lines and sails, and a part of her casks, together with some of the larger tim- bers of the hull, & c. are xA that remain of this fine vessel. The well known humanity of the inhabitants ot tliii . country w as very conspicuous on this occasion, and needs no additional testimony from us ; at the same nine we think it but justice to add. that to the exertions ol the above- mentioned individuals, and their praise- worthy associates, especially Mr. I. UMSLEN O' Leyton who renoer- ed essential service on the occasion, a great part of the crew of this vessel owed the preservation of their lives; and IS soon as the circumstance of the shipwreck was known in Aberdeen, a subscription was raised for their relief. This subscription amounted in a few hours to above £ 35; and it is a coincidence r. oiess s ngular than true, thai 011 that day week on which the Hebe left her own port, tbe survivors ot* her unfortunate crew were again safely embarked tor their native countiy, and bad their passages paid ; while the balance of the subscription will be transmitted 10 tbe widow wliose husband perished 011 tbe melancholy occasion.

Much interest was excited in the City on Salurda. v by the rumour that a revolution had taken place at Babia, but no confirmation of the rumour was received. We are novr enabled to communicate certain intelligence of tbe pmcfat- rnation of the Constitution towards the northern extremity of the' Portuguese possessions. " PARA, Jan. 4. 1821— On the Ist of this month a Revolution was effected here, w ithout bloodshed. Thfc Colonels of the 1st and2d regiments of Foot, bad been sent for the night preceding by the Governor. They repaired to the Palace, accompanied by 50 or 60 of their Officers, and were interrogated as to certain rumours which had prevailed respecting their intentions ; they declined to give a satisfactory answer, and the next morning, at nine; o'clock, the infantry declared for tbe Constitution, and were shortly afterwards joined by tbe cavalry and artillery. A feu- dc joie was fired, and a Provisional Government was formed. All this w as done in the name of tbe King. For three nights the town has been illuminated, and every thing is perfectly quiet." Tbe latest accounts from the north of Italy come dowt » to the 27th. Of the main body of the Austrian army, about 50,000 had passed through Florence, prior to lliir 24th, on their march direct for Rome. The van is re- presented as being within twenty- seven leagues of that celebrated city. Another Austrian corps bad reached Rieti, about two leagues and a half from tbe frontier of the Abruzzos. In the mean time we find the Neapolitan* excited to the highest decree of patriotic enthusiasm, all distinctions merged in the general resolution lo maintain the integrity of their country, and to repc| ancJ pi„, jst, t|, e invaders. A Neapolitan corps has already passed tbe frontiers, and entered the lands of the Church, pushing forward to within sijteeen leagues of Rome. There is no country in the world better adapted for prolonging against an invading army a desultory warfare than Italy, ami it is upon this principle, as it would seem, that the Minister of War, Carascosa. has former! bis plan for the defence of Naples, should the Austrians pass the frontiers. It is intimated in a private letter, that the Officers anil crews of tbe British and Frciich ships in the harbour ot" Naples have evinced a deep interest in favour of tire Nea- politans. Considerable numbers of French and Spanish, officers have arrived in Naples and offered their services la- the Government. They have been of course favourably received. It Is an opportunity for distinguishing them- selves, of which the gallant spirits of Italy, France, ami Spain, will not fail to take ad vantage. The accounts from Spain are far from satisfactory. The unpopularity ofthe King seems daily to increase, and be j is insulted by the populace wherever he appears. Me op. j cned the session of the Cortes on tbe Ist March, and the i speech which he made on this occasion appears by no meant j to have met the approbation of that body. According to report, it was drawn up w ithout the advice of his Minis- ters; and this seems the more probable, as it contains ac- j cusation against themselves, and as they were all dismissed I the same evening in which it was delivered with the ex- ' ception ofthe Minister of Marine. Next day, tbe 2d, the j most violent agitation prevailed in tbe metropolis, and it I was feared that some unhappy coumotion would take I place. i There is a rumour of a partial change of Ministry. TIis j Lord Chancellor and the Earl of Liverpool arc mentioned j as two of tbe . Members to go out. The rumoured < hanga j is ascribed to a favourable disposition towards tbe Catholic ! Claims presumed to be entertained in a certain quarter. Copies of a letter from a gallant Marquis who distin. gtiisbed himself at the battle of Waterloo, addressed to the highest Personage in the kingdom, on the subjictof the Queen, are handed about iu fashionable circles, and, it is said, has excited considerable surprise in the quarter to which it is addressed. Oil Monday tbe Glasgow frigate, Captain the Hon. A. Maitlaiid, arrived at Portsmouth in twenty- one days from the squadron of observation in Naples Bay. The Liffev. Capt. tbe Hon. II.
