Colonel GORDON of Cluny, being out of Lease at Whitsunday 1822, lie gives notice, that he is ready to treat for a new term of Nineteen Years; and. to tenants of capi at and skill, will afford every reasonable encou- ragement in the w ay of additional Houses aud Enclosures, as well as Roads and Drains. The Estate comprehends, in the whole, upwards of Six Thousand Scotch Acres: and is divided into Farms of various sizes, from Twenty to Seven Hundred Acres each, including Kirktown of Stains, Sea fie Id, Whiteness, Crawley, Mains, Old Clochtovr, New Clochtour, Ogiton, Broadmuir, Eroadh/ hill. Fpper <$• Nether Brown- hilt, i'napslcask, Nelherleask, Myrclcash, Smuldyhill. Auchnabo, Knaperna, Alehousehitl, Mil/ own if Brogan, Upper Brogan, Feu Farm, Mihoum of Collieston, Cothill. Mu dhole, Midtown. I. ittle Collieston, Haddo, Milt own of Forvie, I. ittle Forvie, Waterside, i- c. all of which will be let. with entry at . the term mentioned, either according to the present, or any other arrangement, that may be preferred by intending offerers. A great proportion of the Land is of the finest quality, and adapted to the successful cultivation of every kind of grain and green crop. It abounds with calcareous sand, which, as a stimulant, has been found so highly valuable and in point of situation, its advantages are very rare, having the Fishing Village of Collieston near the centre of the Estate, and, immediately at the south west boundary, the Shipping Port of Newburgh, which affords a ready outlet lor the produce, and an easy supply of Lime, Coal and other necessaries. The Property is fourteen mile- distant from Aberdeen, and ten from Peterhead ; so that it not only possesses, within itself, the convenience of an an excellent Fish- market, and exhaustless manure, but lies also within a single stage ofthe best grain markets, and most considerable sea- ports upon the east coast. The Houses and Farm Steadings being all the property of ihe Heritor, the new tenants will have to receive them, upon dead inventory, without any payment in the way of melioration; and, as the outgoing. tenants are bound, by the existing conditions of lease, to leave one- third part of the arable land in grass, three years old, and a proportion of the remainder in grass two, and one year old, the entry must be peculiarly favourable. The different Farms, and their present boundaries, • will be pointed out by Alexander Fetch at Cothill Ground Officer on the Estate; and the Regulations as to cropping, and other particulars, may be learned by apply, ing to Duncan Davidson, Advocate in Aberdeen, to whom oilers may be addressed till the last day of October next, when the new Setting will take place at Colliestou. Oi- lers not accepted w ill be concealed, if desired. jj. u. There is abundance of Moss of excellent qua- lity. upon the Estate, and it is the Proprietor's intention to give ofl' from Fifty to a Iluudred Crofts, of different awes. to improving tenants. The Farm of Miltown of Forvie, consisting of nearly two hundred acres, is already open, and may be entered to Immediately. EXTENSIVE SALE OF WINES, SPIRITS, FURNITURE, & c.

AT the request of several friends, I some months ago published a Set of " New Tide Tables, for the " year 1821, shewing the true time of High Water at Aberdeen and London, with the depth of water on the Aberdeen Bar every second flood, 1' & c. & c. In framing the column of d viths in said Tables, I pro- ceeded upon data, which were furnished by a person whom 1 considered well acquainted with the state of the Tides in this harbour ; but I have since ascertained, not only thatthe information which I so received was erroneous, but that, from the structure ofthe coast, and the manner in which the Tides are affected by the winds, and other circumstances, no accurate calculation can be made of the precise depth of water on any given day, without a much longer course of experiments than I have yet had an op- portunity of making. I therefore think it my duty to caution all Mariners and others, not to rely on thai Column ofthe Tables for 1821, which relates to the depth of water at the Bar of Aberdeen ; although the other parts of the Tables may he depended on for correctness. Being anxious to have the column of the depths of water on the bar calculated, for the future, from data ob- tained from actual measurements, I have already measur- ed the metlium neap tide, and found it to be nearly three feet more than what I used in framing that column. The medium springtide I have not yet obtained with certainty. Aberdeen, April 13, 1821. GEO. INNES. AGENCY— SUPERIOR ACCOMMODA- TIO V— BANKERS' ACCEPTANCE. THE Advertisers who have been situated for years as Merchants in the City of London, with ex tensive first rate Connections and Foreign Correspon- dencies, have opened their House entirely in the Com- mission Line for the Side and Purchase of all description of Goods, they flatter themselves from their general knowledge of business and strict attention to the fluctua- tion of the London markets, they are enabled to purchase and sell goods on better terms than most houses in Lon- don.

As I one morning shaving sat, For dinner- time preparing, A dreadful howling from tlie cat Set all the room a staring ! Sudden I turn'd— beheld a scene I could not but delight in. For in my boot, so bright and clean, The cat her face was fighting. Bright was the boot— its surface fair, In lustre nothing lacking; I never saw one half so clear. Except by WARREN'S BLACKING. ( WARREN ! that name shall last as long As beans and belles shall dash on, Immortalized in every song That chants the praise of fashion ; For, oh ! without his Blacking, all Attempts we may Abolish To raise upon our boots at all The least of jet or polish.) Surprised its brilliancy I viewed With silent admiration ; The glass that on the table stood Waxed dimly on its station. I took ihe boot, the glass dfcplac'd, For soon I was aware, The latter only was disgrae'd, Whene'er the boot was near. And. quickly found that I could shave, Much better by its bloom, Than any mirror that I have Within my drawing- room. And since that time, I've often smil'd To think how puss was frighten'd, When at the boot she tugg'd and toil'd By WARREN'S Blacking brighten'd.

On Tue* da;' morning, as John Craig, miller at Nether Mills of Kinnabar. wasgreasin the machinery while the mill was goitig, his feet slipped from the brink of the hopper upon which he stood, and. in the attempt to save his fall, his loft band got entangled amongst the wheels, and was so much injured, that amputation of three of the finders was performed immediately after the accident. There was a considerable fall of snow last week on the road betwixt Inverness and Perth, particularly at Slough- niuick. We are sorry to hear frotn several parts of the country, that notwithstanding the mildness of the winter, the Sh£ ep Farmers have lost tnore hogs by brixy, on an average, than in m- re severe seasons. There has, however, been little loss of old sheep on the mountains. We understand that, on Saturday last, some gentlemen, on opening a box belonging to the late Mr. Eraser of I. ovat, in the chambers of Mr. Wisllart, Register- office, Edin- burgh. found a Queen Anne's farthing, which, we believe, was the only one amissing, of the four struck during her re'gn. A melancholy accident happened at Auldbar on Sib- batb, the 25th ult. A boy. in climbing a high tree in search of crows eggs, lost his hold, fell headlong to the ground, and was killed on the spot. This should operate as a warning to the young against such dangerous prac- tices, and to parents against leaving them at large on that sacred day. On the 15th ult. a quantity of potatoe oats was milled at the . Mill of Stonehaven, which produced 22 pecks and one lippie of meal, per boll. The grain was raised on the farm of Bugatuhead, in the parish of Dun- uottar. BURGH REFORM COMMITTEE. We regret to learn that two of the most efficient members of the Scots Burgh Committee have retir- ed from all further concern in its proceedings. Sir Ronald Ferguson and Mr. J..]'. Grant of Rothie- murchus. Tltev both stated to the House of Com- mons their reasons " To bo an utter despair of ren- dering any service to the cause of Burgh Reform, by any longer attendance, where a majority of the Committee was in direct opposition to their views, and to the verv objects for which the Committee Mits appointed." It will be observed, that Five Placemen are to be fount] in the number, namely, The Lord Advocate, Sir George Clerk, Sir George Warrender, both Lords of the Admiralty, Lord Binning, at the Board of Control, and . Mr. William Dttndas, Keeper of the Signet. The last gentle- man has been twice elected M. P. for Edinburgh, • while the burgesses were engaged in a law plea to prove that there were no electors. N.

CURRENTS OF THE OCEAN.— The following document was inclosed in a bottle, and thrown into the sea just 12 months ago. It was taken upon the shores of Martinique, on the 4th February last. The bottle had thus travelled a distance of 2.500 miles in about ten months, 2.50 miles per month, or 8 miles per day. We give a copv of this instruc- tive document, with the notice subjoined :— " The bottle which contains this card was thrown into the sea in lat. 5. deg. 12 min. S. long. 24. deg. 40. rnin. W. at noon, on the 28th day of March 1820*. from the ship Ospray of Glasgow, which sailed from Greenock on the 26th February, on a trading voyage round the world.— Whoever finds this, is requested to insert a notice of the time and place in some literary or political publication, with the view of establishing facts'relative to the currents ofthe ocean. All well." This bottle was found on the 4th Feb. 1821, near the eastern point of the Salines, qtiarterof St. Ann's, Martinique, in tin: best order, as will be seen by this paper, which it contained. T. BOURAMT, Printerand Director of the General Post Office, Martinique. St. Pierre, Martinique, Feb. 26', 1S2I. AGRICULTURAL REPORTS FOR MARCH. ENGLAND. The almost constant drought of February left the country 111 little need of March dust, of which, how- ever, it had a number of pecks. So little rain, in- deed has fallen throughout the winter season, that . . . • straw has superabounded from deleetofthe necessary moisture to convert it into manure. The- slight and flying showers of the present month have not had tiny verv signal effect in forwarding vegetation ; nor has the temperature been genial, from the variable- ness ofthe winds, and the prevalence of those from the east and north, from which, perhaps, mav be drawn a fortunate prognostic for the spring and sum- mer seasons. Crops'of every description have a healthful, if not forward appearance, and only watt for the refreshing showers and mild temperature of spring to burst into full luxuriance. Notwithstand- ing the general and extreme distress, the- spirit of the farmers has been highly commendable in turning a most favourable season to the utmost national ad- vantage. Considering all circumstances, the lands have been generally well tilled and vast stocks of cattle reared and fed. ' 1 he seeds have been got in ear- ly. Much wheat was sown in the bean planting season, in various parts, and barley ; and in few seasons has so little of semination remained to be completed as in the present. Out- door stock has done well, and such continues to be the ease with the Iambs, of which the fall is great and successful for the most part. All field labour is forward.— Turnips began to run with the present month, but cattle food has been plenty throughout the whole season, consisting of great stocks of hay and straw and low- priced corn. I'lie markets have been amply stocked with both fat and lean cattle and sheep ; Ireland supplying us with pigs at a very moderate price. Milch cows have generally sold well. The slight variation in the price of wool ( long fleeces) scarcely worth noting. Fine hops readier' sales at some advance. The late advance in the price of corn has drawn a considerable supply to the markets, and since that advance, to shew the estimation in which quality is held, fine Kentish runs of wheat have reached the price of 61s. whilst fine Essex wheats were worth 70s. In the mean time, from the most solid proofs, it is apparent the farming in- terest must be relieved or ruined. The event will disclose to those concerned, whether or not, the proper steps to obtain relief have been taken. KINCARDINESHIRE. The severe storm and heavy fall of snow which ushered in the month of March went off more rapid- ly than had been anticipated ; but the weather did not resume its former mildness till the 8th, and scarcely then. A piercing easterly wind on the 9th and 10th brought heavy showers, which cleared the atmosphere, and induced the hope of a favourable spring season ; but it still continues sharp and stormy. The sky continued gloomy and unfavourable from the 16th to the 22d, with heavy showers of rain and sleet, and sharp night frosts. We had heavy showers again 011 the 2.5th ; but the wind shifted to the west, and was rapidly preparing the ground for sowing-, till itvvasagain drencheduith rainonthe27th. Though theweathcr is now dry and favourable for field labour, it is still hard and stormy. Upon the whole, the past month has been very unfavourable, and has disappointed the expectation of an early seed time. Pease, and some oats, have been sown towards the end of February ; but, from the frequent interrup- tions, and generally unfavourable nature of the past month, the oat seed can scarcely be considered half finished. Wheats, though generally a strong healthy plant/ have suffered considerably from the late frosts and blasting winds, particularly the late sown, and those 011 wet soils, which present lather a bleak ap- pearance. Grain markets are a shade lower, and sales dull and heavy. Seed oats have been sold at 16s. to 21s. per boll. Cattle, except good fat, have rather declined since last report, but these bring a fair price: calves, for rearing, are briskly sought after at high prices. Draught horses have been iu full demand at £ 25 to £ 30 ; some of strong bone and good figure as high as £ 35. Grass parks that have been offered, are considerably lower than last season. The demand for perennial grass seed continues at 12s. to 20s. per boll. Taking the present aspect of affairs into view, the prospects of the farmer are far from flattering. FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. FROM FRENCH PAPERS. PARIS, April 1.— A telegraphic dispatch an-- nounces that the Austrians entered Naples 011 the 25th. The King of England will this year visit his kingdom of Hanover. That country has not en-, joyed such ail advantage since 17.55. There is a report now prevalent, and which is deserving of credit, that the King has written a letter to the Duke de Cazes to forbid him the Court. The letter was couched in the most cour- teous and friendly terms, and the prohibition was ascribed to motives of political necessity alone. Still, the letter is thought to be a measure not dictated bv generous or liberal feeling, inasmuch as it is sent at a time when the Duchess de C- izes is dying. The two documents which follow, and which an- nounce the termination of the expedition against Naples, were received at Florence 011 the 24th of March : FOURTH BULLETIN ofthe AUSTRIAN ARMY. " Head- quarters at Teano, March 20. " The grand army, after passing the Liri, at Ceprano, advanced rapidly on San Gerinano. General C'arascosa had fallen back with his army into the entrenched posi- tion of Mignano, on the road to Capua. The same spirit which caused the dispersion of General Pepe's army in the Abruzzi manifested itself in a still more violent way in the camp of Mignano. The troops, unwilling to fight for the insurgent causc, declared against their Chiefs, who could only escape from the danger that threatened them by allowing their soldiers to disperse, and retire to their homes, after laying down their arms. " The Neapolitan army no longer exists. The Royal Guard alone, faithful to the sentiments which its name was calculated to produce, preserved order and dis- cipline. " The forts of San Germano on the Monte Cassino surrendered yesterday. The soldiers were compelled to surrender, with cries of ' Live the King /' " Capua, one of the strongest bulwarks of the king- dom. opens its gates to- morrow. 41 To- morrow our advanced guard will be at Versa. " The war is terminated. Our entrance into the capi- tal will be that of an allied army. " What has been done at Naples was neither the wish of the people nor the army. The facts prove." . CONVENTION BETWEEN THE AUSTRIANS AND NEAPOLITANS. The undersigned, furnished with full powers for that purpose, have agreed upon the following articles :— " 1. There shall be a suspension of hostilities on all the points of the kingdom. " 2. Hostilities shall also cease by sea, with as little delay as possible. Orders to this effect shall be immedi- ately dispatched by the two armies* " •"• The Austrian army shall occupy Capua. To- morrow, the 21st, its posts shall occupy but not pass the town of Aversa. 4. The occupation of the town of Naples and its forts shall he the object of a particular convention. " 5. The Austrian army shall respect persons and property, whatever may be the particular circumstances of each individual. • 6. All Royal property and property of the State existing in the provinces occupied by the Austrian army, or which it may occupy ; all arsenals, magazines, parks, dockyards, manufactories of arms, & c. belong of right to the King, and shall be 1 espeeted as such. *' 7. InVill the places aud forts occupied by the Aus- trian army there shall be, independent of the Austrian commander, a Governor in the name of the King. All the imateriel of war. in as far as respects the administrative part, shall be under the Royal administrative direc- tions. 8. The present Convention shall be ratified by the Prince Regent and by Baron Fiitnont, the General com- manding the Austrian army.

NOVARA, March 23.— The following deelara- tion has been published here : '• C1IAUI. ES AI. BERT OF SAVOY, RRJN'CE OP CARICNANO. When we accepted the difficult functions of Prince Regent, it was only done to give proofs of our entire obedience to the King, and the ardent desire with which we are animated for the public good, which did not per- mit Us to refuse the reins of St ite confided to us for the moment to prevent its falling into anarchy, the greatest of. Ml evils that can afflict a nation. But our first solemn oath has been that of fidelity to our well beloved King, Charles Felix. " As* pledge of the firmness with which we maintain the faith we have sworn, we have quitted the capital with the troops which follow us, anil having arrived here, we declare openly that, renouncing the above- mentioned functions of Prince Regent, we have no desire remaining but to show ourselves the first in the path of honour w hich our august Sovereign points out to us, and to set the example, once and forever, of the most respectful obedi- ence to the will of the Sovereign. - CHARLES ALBERT. " Given at Novara, March 23, 1821." PROCLAMATION. " Pieilmontese 1— His Majesty Charles Felix, on whom, after the abdication of his Majesty, Victor Em- manuel, the sovereign authority has devolved, has com- manded me to unite his faithful troops into one army, and to assume, the chief command. Already his Royal Highness the Prince of Carig- nano, giving the first example of obedience to the so- vereign will, and of fidelity to the throne, has repaired to Novar. i. followed by two regiments of cavalry, and one- battery of artillery, which he has conducted hither front the capital. ' All those who are not blinded by deceitful illusions will applaud this example, aware that our firm re- union around the throne of our Kings is the sole way to safety which remains to us, to avoid the calamities with which our dear country is menaced ; of which that of seeing ir occupied by foreign troops ismot one of the least dis- astrous. Piedmontese I I feel proud at having been se'ected for ibis undertaking, for which I prepare mylelf with con- fidence, bccausu I know that you are loyal, and animated like myself by the love of our country. Let us restore to our beautiful country that tranquillity which a handful of ill- judging individuals, impelled by unbridled ambition and insolent folly, have essayed to deprive us of, in wish- ing to make us lose the reputation of fidelity to the august House of Savoy— a reputation which, during eight cen- turies, has formed our most valued possession. " Citizens and soldiers! Recollect that you form but one family, of which our good King Charles Felix is the father. His voice alone is that which you are to follow ; any other will plunge you into mourning and desolation. Love the King! " Given at Novara, 23d March, 1821. " DE LATOUR, Gen. in Chief." April 3.— M. dela Ferronave, Ambassador from France to Russia, who attended { he Congress of Laybach, has returned to Paris. Count. Nesselrode, Minister for Foreign Affairs to the Emperor of Russia is expected at Paris. A letter from Grenoble, dated March 29, says— " For some davs past the movements of couriers and estallettes have become very active. Yesterday two estaflettes arrived here, one from Chamberry and the other from Lvons Another set offimme- diately for the latter city. Two couriers on the same day passed through here, one a Russian, who stop- ped at the Prefect's Office, the other a Spaniard from Turin, proceeding in all haste to Madrid, who had been obliged to come by the way of Mauri- enne, iu consequence of the events in Savov." General Lacroix's proclamation, dated the 27th nit. for relieving Grenoble from a stale of siege, states thaj measure to be adopted in consequence of official information of the re- establishment of legitimate order in Piedmont, and the general tranquillity which prevails in all the departments of France. NAPLES, March 23 A part ofthe Austrian army already assembled in our neighbourhood, has this morning entered the capital. We admired the fine condition of these troops, who, during their long march from the frontiers to Naples, have ob- served the strictest discipline. Al! the corps passed through Toledo- Street to defile before the King's Palace, where were the Regent Duke of Calabria, and his brother the Prince of Salerno. An im- mense concourse of people . expressed their applause ofthe King, and saluted with joyous acclamations the troops of his august Ally. March 24.— By a Royal Ordinance, dated at Florence on the 15th, his Majesty has named a Provisional Government, to, whom the care of the kingdom shall be confided until a new Royal dispo- sition shall be made. APRIL 4.— General Gout- gaud has arrived in Paris, at the house of his mother. Private letters state the 30,000 Austrian . troops, 10,000 of whom are cavalry, have arrived at Milan. The Duke of Calabria was to depart on the 26sh for the Castle of Cascrta. His brother, Prince Leopold, it is said, goes to Florence to the King. EXTRACT OF A PRIVATE LETTER. " If the reports disseminated in the political cir- cles here may be relied on, the Austrians, on their entry into Naples, offered to the Neapolitans a mix- ed constitution, something resembling that of France, and, as an iudiiccnunt for their acceptance of it, in- timated that refusal would be immediately followed by the advance of a Russian armv also into their ter- ritory. The Neapolitans are said to have acquies- ced immediately in this proposition, and also, anxious to suspend the threatened march of the Russians, to have sent an express to the bead- quarters to declare their obedience. " They were informed, however, that it was too late; the Russians were on the march, aiwl must proceed. Vrr. s'N'A, March 20.— According to accounts from Bucharest, of the 22d February, the leader ofthe insurgents, Theodore Wladimiskoi, has been j beaten by the troops of the Prince, assembled by ! the BovdrS, so that there is reason to believe that this revolt will be speedily suppressed. It is said that Wladimiskoi litis been an officer in the service of Russia. The Functionary nominated by the Sublime-" Furte, as the representative of the IIos- podar, had arrived at Bucharest. A letter from Vienna, dated the 23d ult. states that, a Declaration of the . three Powers against the Piedmontese insurrection is about to be published. PRIVATE CORIt ESP0 A'/ JEXCE. TURIN, March 25.— This city is greatly agitat- ed, in consequence of the arrival of' intelligence from Genoa, bv which it appears a dreadful commo- tion has taken place in that city. The Constitution of Spain was first hailed with rapture, but when the protest of the new King was made known, a di- versity of opinion prevailed, and the result has been that blood was spilt. The batteries were opened, I have heard, on the people; and the troops in that garrison took different sides. The British Charge d'Aflaircs has requested the English here not to pro- ceed to Genoa until further intelligence shall be re- ceived. Every ' nan here is under arms, and the whole of the regular army is on their march to the frontiers. The report is very generally circulated here, that the Austrians are in possession of Naples. I have not a moment more, for the Courier— The following Placard has just been issued here : <• THE" PROVISIONAL JUNTA. " CITIZENS!— The country has to deplore the tumults which have happened in Genoa, and to rejoice at the same time in seeing the new order of things enthusi- astically received there both by the royal troops and by the people. The Constitutional System will be the greatest and most durable chain of the yet lecent union between Genoa and Piedmont. A publication, not very prudent, which, by the advice of persons the most prudent and esteemed both in the old and new order of things, was avoided at Turin, wasthe cause of the tumults.— Let us comfort ourselves, however, with the reflection, that in Genoa good arose out of the evil, as frequently happens in human affairs, namely, the atdent, loud and strong manifestation of a great wish— the wish of Pied- mont, of Italy, and of Europe. " The extraordinary nature of the circumstances in Genoa, induced General Count Desgeneys lo give his powers to an administrative Commission of Government, which has already connected itself with the National Giunta. It has nominated, provisionally, a Chief of Police, of which it demanded the continuation. The Giuuta will do every thing to satisfy the wishes of the Genoese, and to preserve to the King and the country so precious and noble a part of this flourishing dominion. Given at Turin, the 25th March, 182!. ( Signed) " MARENTINI, President. " DAL POZZO." Bv subsequent letters from Turin, it appears that a formal declaration of war litis been issued by the Piedmontese Government against Austria, and that troops have been collecting with a view of inarching on Milan without delay. The militia had been called out, and the Austrian Ambassador. Binder, who had been detected in an endeavour to excite disturbances in Turin by offering bribes to both officers and men, has been politely invited to leave the capital. The Austrians are supposed to have only from twelve to fourteen thousand men in the Lombardo Venetian kingdom The friends of the Italian cause expect much from the Subalpioe armies, whose cry is " guerra ai barbari." STOCKHOLM, March 20.— A remarkable pro- posal having been made to alter the mode hitherto adopted for calculating the amount of the import duty on foreign wool, his Majesty has decided the duties shall henceforward be estimated according to the value of the article. Bvgger still refuses to confirm his statements by evidence. It is positively affirmed that the application made bv the Ex- King of Sweden to the Norwegian Diet to obtain the rights of a citizen in Norway, is to be considered as having never existed. VALENCIENNES, March 28.— The Armv of Observation which is going to be formed in the South of France will be composed, as it appears, of between 30 and 40,000 men of all arms. It will occupy positions upon one part of our frontiers to- wards Southern Switzerland, in Daphinc and Pro- vence, in order to observe what passes in the Pied- montese dominions, where the revolution seems to be general. The'Marshal Duke ofBclIuno will provisionally fix his head- quartets at Lyons ; but if the nature of circumstances should require it, he will remove them to some other place. II is powers will be verv exten- sive— a measure which is rendered necessary by the late manoeuvres employed by a certain party to ex- cite troubles at Grenoble and Lyons, though these criminal projects have been happily stifled in their birth. But as it is not to be dissembled that eternal agitators may again attempt to disturb public tran- quillity, by spreading news as false as thevare absurd, which yet find dupes sufficiently simple, or always disposed to believe them, these precautions do ho- nour to the foresight and wisdom of the Govern- ment. On the other hand, il is impossible to foresee what nitty be the consequence of the Piedmontese revolution. What is certain is, that all Italy will be occupied by numerous Austrian and Russian armies, and probably for a long period of time ; many regiments in garrison on the northern fron- tiers expect every moment orders to commence their march fof the south. FROM GERMAN PAPERS BRUSSELS, April 2.— We learn, by accounts from the frontiers of France, that in consequence of orders sent by the Minister of War, several regi- ments are already on their march for Lyons'. and Dauphine. A train of artillery is preparing at La Fere; it . is intended for the co^ ps of observation which is going to be assembled in the south. AMERICA, $ c. THE PRESIDENT'S SPEECH. American Papers to the 11th ult. have arrived, with the inaugural Speech. of JAMES MUNROE, on his re- election as President of the Uniled States. We should be happy, . if our space would allow us. at once to present our leaders wit h the whole of this document, as it presents a pleasing contrast to those official documents which have issued from the Club at Lavbach. The modest and temperate exposition of this elected Minister of a great nation— a man who, after being selected from the whole population • to direct their affairs, has been re- chosen bv those for whom he has administered— is somewhat more congenial to our notions of a proper state of Go- vernment, than the itisolent assumption of supreme wisdom, of a right to dispose of the bodies and minds of men, on, the part of the despots who are now leading on slaves to put down liberty. The Speech, from which we make the following extracts, was delivered at the Capitol on the 5th of March, when the re- elected President took the oath to support the Constitution in the presence of an immense multitude. The passages which we select are those which refer to the actual foreign relations ofthe L nited States :— " Great confidence is entertained that the late Treaty with Spain, which has been ratified by both the - parties, and tile ratifications whereof have been exchanged, has placed the relations of the two countries on a basis of per. manent friendship. The provision made hy it for such of our citizens as have- claims on Spain of the character de- • iilh. d. will, ti Is jWes^ mru. oe very satisfactory to them ; and the iKiundarj which is established between tlie territo- ries ofthe parties, westward of the Mississippi, heretofore in dispute, has, it is thought, been settled on conditions just and advantageous lo both. But, to the acquisition of Florida too much importance cannot be attached :—• It secures to the United States a territory important in itself, ami w hose importance is much increased by its bear- ing ou many of the highest interests of tlie Union ; it, opens to several ofthe neighbouring States a free passage to the ocean, through the province ceded, by several rivet's, having their sources high lip within ibeir limits it secures us against all future annoyance from powcifut Indian tcities ; it gives us several excellent harbours in • he Gulf of Mexico for ? hips of war of the largest s're ; it cov '(•-, by its [ Kisition in the Gulf, the Mississippi and othei gr- at waters within our extended limits, and there- by enables the United Slates to afford complete piotectioii to the vast and very valuable productions of our whol$ western country, which liud a market through iho*: streams. By a treaty with the British Government, bearing date on the 20th of October, 1S18. the Convention regu- lating the commerce between the United Statesand Great Britain, concluded on the . jJ of July, ( 815. which was about expiring, was revived, and continued for the term often years, from the time of its expiration. By that treaty also ihe differences which had arisen under tins treaty of Ghent, respecting the right claimed by the United States for iheir citizens to take and cure fish on the coast of bis Britannic Majesty's dominions in America, with other differences on i- nportaut interests, were adjusted, to the satisfaction of both parties. No agreement has yet In- en entered into resecting the commerce U'tween the United States and the British dominions in the West Indies and on this Continent. The restraints imposed on that commerce by Great Britain, reciprocated by the United States, on a principle of defence, cominuc still in force. " The ilegociatron with France, for the regulation of the commercial relations between the iwo countries, witicii. in the course of the last summer, had been commenced at Paris, has since- lieen transferred toth « city, and w. il 1- e pursued, on tbe. part of tire United States in the spiritof conciliation, and with an earnest desire that it may termi- nate in an arrangement iatisfactory to both parties. Our relations with the llarlwiry Powers are preserved in- the same stale, and hy the same means, that w- o e em- ployed when I canve into this office. As early as IS !!, it was found neces-. ary to send a squadr. m into the Medi- terranean. for the protection of our commerce, and na period has intervened, a short time excepted, when it was thought advisable to withdraw it. The great interest which the United States have in the Pacific, in commerce and in the fisheries, have also made it necessary to main- tain a naval force Ihere. In disposing ot this force ia both Instances, the most effectual measures ill our power have been taken, without interfering with its other duties, for tlie suppression of the Slave Trade, aud of piracy, in the neighbouring seas. " The situation of the United States, in regard to their resources, the extent of their revenue, and the facility with which it is raised, affords a most gratifying spectacle. The payment of nearly sixty- seven millions of dollars of the public debt, with the great progress made in measure* of defence, and in other improvements of various kinds, since the late war, are conclusive proofs of this < xtraordi- uary prosperity, especially when it is recollected that these expenditures have been defrayed, without a l. urthca on the people, the direct tax and the Excise Iwving been repealed soon after the conclusion of tlie late war. and '. iw revenue applied to these great objects having been raised in a manner not to be felt. Our great resources, there- fore, remain untouched for any purpose which may affect the vital interests of the nation. For all such purpose* they are inexhaustible. They are more especially to be found in Ihe virtue, patriotism, and intelligence of our fellow- citizens, aitti iu the devotion with which hey would yield up, by any just measures of taxation, all their pro- perty in support ofthe rights and honour of their country. Under the present depression of prices, affecting all the productions of the country, and every branch of in-, dustry, proceeding from ciuse . explained on a fotmer oc- casion, the revenue has considerably diminished } tile ef- fect of which has been to compel Congresscith: r to aban- don these great measures of defence, or to re ort to loans or internal taxes to supply the deficiency. On ihe pre- sumption that this depression, and the deficiencv in the revenue arising from it, would he tempoiary loans were authorised for the demands of the last and present year. Anxious to relieve my fcllow- citizengiii 1817 from <' Verv hurthen which could be dispensed witli, and the stale of the Treasury permitting it, I recommended the repeal nf the internal taxes, knowing that such relief was tOe cttliarly necessary, in consequence of the great exen mi made in the late war. I made that recommend ton . oiler a pledge that, should the public exigencies require , i re- currence to them at any time while 1 remained iu this trust. 1 would, with equal promptitude, perform Ihe duly which would then be alike incumbent on me By tie ex- periment now making it will be seen, by next Session of Congress, whether tlie revenue shall have been so aug- mented as to be adequate to all these necessary purposes- Should the deficiency still continue, and especially should it he probable that it would be permanent, the course t » l; e pursued appears to me to be obvious. 1 am satisfied that, under certain circumstances, loans niny lie resorted to with great advantage. I am equally well - a i - lied as a general rule, that ihe demands of the current year es- pecially in time of peace, should he provided I'or- by the revenue of that year. I have never dreaded, nor have I J ever shunned, in any situation in which I have been plac- 1 efl, making appeals to the virtue and patriotism of my fellow cit'zens, well knowing th. it they could never be made in vain. es| x> ciaiiy in times of great emergency, or for purposes of high national importance. Independenrly of the exigency of the case, many consideration . of great weight urge a policy having in view a provision of revenue to meet, to a certain extent, the demands of the « ai icm. without reiving altogether on the precarious resource of foreign commerce. I am satisfied that internal duties and excises, with corresponding iinpo- ts on foreign articles of the same kind, would without imposing any serious bur- thens oil the people, enhance the price of produce, pro- mote our manufactures, and augment the revenue, at the same time that they made it more secure and permanent.. • " The care of the Indian tribes within our limits has long been tin essential part of our system, but. unfortu- nately, it has not been execute! in a manner to accom- plish all the objects intended by it. Wt have treated them as independent nations r- ithout their having any substantial pretensions to that rank. The distinction lias flattered their pride, retarded their improvement, ami, ii* many instances,- paved the way to lb- ir destruction. ' I ho progress of our settlements westw ard, supported, as they are, by a dense populatsnn, has constantly driven them hack, with almost the total sacrifice of the lands which they have been compelled to abandon. They have claims on the magnanimity, and. I may add, on the justice of this nation, which we must all feel. We shoal t btcoine their real benefactors, we should perforin the office of their Great Father, the endearing title which they em- phatically give to the Chief Magistrate of our Union Their sovereignty over vast territories should cease, iu lieu of which the tight of soil should be secured to each individual and his posterity, in competent portions ; and, foi the territory thus ceded by each tribe, some reason- able equivalent should be granted, to hi- vested in per- manent. funds for the support of Civil Government ever them, and for the education of their children, for their instruction in the'arts of husbandry, and to provide sus- tenance for them until they conlil provide it for themselves.

NEWPORT brought up from the Commons the Roman Catholic disabilities removal hill. He u- asac- companied by a vast number of Members, particularly Irish The Earl of DONOUGHMORE, in moving the first reading of the Roman Catholic disabilities removal bill, could not help congratulating their Lordships that the measure ha I come down from the Commons to this House. He felt that he was now placed in a most res- ponsible situation. He had had a conversation with the supporters of this measure, and he believed that several material amendments would be proposed in it, that would itave the effect of benefiting the Catholics without weaken- ing the securities to the S ate. It might he so modified as to do away every conscientious objection Catholics could entertain. He proposed that the bill be printed, and that it be read a second time on Tuesday next. The Earl of I IVIJ It POOL did not rise to give the motion any opposition. Coming as the bill did with the authority of tbe other House, it merited the best conside- ration their Lordships could give it. At the present mo- ment. anil in tbe present stage, it would be highly indeco- rous to discuss the subject, but on the second reading he should state at large the objections he felt to the measure* He could not consent to grant these privileges to the Ro- man Catholics, and should particularly resist those clauses v hicll related to the Catholic clergy Many of those enactments were not only unjust, but would defeat the \ erv end proposed by the framersof the bill. The Earl of DONOUGHMORE added, that on the subject of securities, and the particular securities propo- sed he was disposed to think with the Noble Earl. He wanted no additional security. If he doubted the loyalty of ti e Roman Catholics he should be unfit to be an ad- vocate of their cause. He much regretted that the Noble Earl did not approve ofthe measure itself, but he felt - very grateful that the other House at length had passed it. The I. ORD CHANCELLOR said, that he had at- tentively read this hill, and, situated as he was, it was very important for him to consider whether he could consent to the vast alteration proposed. He had no difficulty in saying, that he found no reason to alter the opinions he had always entertained and expressed on the subject. It was in consequence of the danger that, it threatened to the Mare that he should resist it on the second reading. With regard to modifications, he held it impossible so to alter it as to reconcile his mind to tbe principle of the measure. The bill was then read a first time, and the Lords were summoned for Tuesday next, for which day the second reading was appointed.— Adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS. Monday, April ci. CORN AVERAGE BILL. Mr. K DOUGL\ S presented a pe ition from the corn merchants of Leitb, against the corn average bill, and praying that it might not be hurried through the House. Sir M. W. RIDLEY observed that it was a mistake likelv to be attended with mischievous consequences, if not exposed, that the hill was calculated to raise the price of corn. Mr. LUSIIINGTON said, the exposure would soon be made as he w as about to lay before the House a return, from which it would appear that if this bill had been a law nine months ago, the averages would now have been lower. Mr K. DOUGL ASremarked that the bill would have the effect of depressing the average 7s. He moved that the petition be referred to the Agricultural Committee. Mr. II. SUMNER was of opinion that the bill was calculated to fulfil the provisions ofthe act of 1815, which be added was prejudicial to the general interests of the farmer. After a few words from Mr. Gladstone. Mr. Ellice, and Mr. T. Wilson, the petition was referred to the Com- mittee. SCOTCH BCRGIIS. Lord A. HAMILTON presented a petition from cer- tain Burgesses and Members of the Guiklry of the City of Edinburgh, complaining of corruption and abuses in the election of the Magistracy, and of abusts in the ad- ministration of the public property ofthe Burgh. The Noble Lord stated, at considerable length, tbe grievances and evils complained of, and that having in vain applied for redress to the Courts of Law. they now find themselves compelled to apply to the Legislature for a remedy. He hoped the House Would give every attention to the matter, as he was convinced that, if they did not, there would be no hope for the petitioners. Mr. ABERCROMBY gave his cordial assent to the statements of the petitioners, and concurred in the prayer of the petition. He urged the necessity of the redress they sought to obtain, and said that it was a subject which • would be pressed again and again, until redress was affor- ded. Mr. WTLLIAM DUNDASsaid it was not his inten- tion to take up the time of the House by arguing the merits of this case ; but he must remind the Hon. Gentle- man and the Noble Lord opposite, that three years ago a Committee of that House decided this question. The facts of the case were, that two parties got to law together, and one being defeated, applied to that House to do what the law refused. He bad no doubt the statement of the petitioners, as to the expence they had been put to, • was entitled to the fullest credit. Had they asked his ad- xice, he would have recommended them upon no account to go into a Court of Law, the inevitable consequence of which must be discomfiture to one party, and a most ex- pensive litigation to both. He could not exactly see what that House could make of this application : but his advice to the petitioners was, that they should drop their arms, and sit themselves down in peace with their neighbours.' Mr. HUME said, it was not to be wondered at that the Right Hon. Gentleman who spoke last should have cautioned the petitioners against litigation, as their law- suite was levelled at the abuses and irregularities of that same self- elected Magistracy which returned the Right Hon. Gentleman to that House, in which he bad been sitting for two Sessions, although illegally elected.— ( Hear, hear !) He would repeat, that the Right Hon. Gentleman was illegally elected ; for, by a decision of the Court of Session in Scotland the Magistracy by whom be had been returned was declared to be illegally con- stituted. What the petitioners complained of was, that individuals who suffered under abuses in the Scots Burgivs, could get no redress, and were overwhelmed with ex- penses. The petitioners complained that the self- elected Magistrates had squandered '£ 350.000 of the public pro- perty. Did the Right Hon. Gentleman recollect that the individuals who petitioned were answerable for the debts contracted ? The Right Hon. Gentleman told them to wait till the subject came out of a Committee. The Right Hon. Gentleman must have imagined that he was speaking to persons ignorant of the proceedings of that Committee—( Hear, hear j)— for they had shown no disposition to any Reform, though no one had shown so . little disposition to it as the Right Hon. Gentleman. him- • self. The Burgesses having in vain sought redress in a Court of Law, now called upon Parliament for a change of the self- electing system, and to be enabled to call upon F the Magistracy to account for the expenditure of their funds. Sir R. C. FERGUSON observed, that as the peti- tioners could get no redress from Courts of Law, it was very natural that they should turn their attention to that House. He decided!* objected to refer the petition to the Committee on Scots Burghs, for that Committee had come lo Resolutions entirely fatal to all inquiry—( Hear!) — The Members had shown themselves so ho- tile to any inquiry, that he ( Sir R. F.) had, withdrawn from that Committee, and another Member had followed his ex- ample. The Noble Lord ( Lord Archibald Hamilton) from a sense of duty, remained in the Chair, but without the least hope of doing any good. . The LORD ADVOCATE defended the Committee. It was to be recollected, lie observed, that the Committee had been appointed three years ago, and that it had made Reports unexampled, he believed, in minuteness. So far from their having stopped all inquiry, they bad resolved, in every one instance in which tbe petitioners had com- plained, that the abuses complained of did exist. As to the nature of the remedies, there was a difference of opi- nion between the Committee and the petitioners, but. it could not. he said that they had resisted all inquiry, when they had inquired into and admitted the assertions of the petitioners. LoVd A. H AMILTON said he would confirm the as- sertion, that the Court of Session bail come to two deci- sions in favour ofthe petitioners. As to the Committee on Scots IJurghs. another opportunity would come for entering into their proceedings ; but he wondered how it coulel be said that they had never resisted inquiry, when in two instances it was urged by himself, and by his Hon. Friend behind him, and refused. He implored the House to consider that the petitioners had been three years en- gaged in law before they troubled that House with their application. On tlie question that the petition should he printed. Mr. J. P. GRANT took the opportunity of giving notice, that in the course of the Session he should move for an inquiry into the practice ofthe Court of Session in Scotland.— The petition was then ordered to be printed. Tuesday, April 3. Mr. C A RTWRIG IIT presented a petition from Northampton against the last malt duty act. Several other petitions were p esented from various places against it. Mr. WESTERN put a question to the Chancellor of the Exchequer as to the duties paid by Scots barleys mdt- ed— whether if this duty of Is 2d was now done awav, the advantage previously given to Scotland, which had been taken from her in 181 9, she being then put on an equality with England, would be restored to her. The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER said he had no objection to this question going to a Committee. Mr. COKE feared the hopes of this Committee would influence the Scots Members. He called on them to ad- here to the votes they had given on a former night. MALT DUTY REPEAL BILL. The order of the day for the second reading of this bill was then read. Mr. WESTERN said the bill having been for some time in the hands ofthe Members, he should content him- self with moving, that the bill be read a second time. Mr. WARD hoped that those who wished to support the Government would re- consider the subject. Mr. LOCKHART expected nothing from theagricul- J tural Committee, and saw for the presenj session no hope ; of any legislative measure. Ministers were not aware of j the extent of the agricultural distress, as for some time back the farmer had been selling his stock to pay his rent. Mr. J. SMITH could not conceive that the repeal of this comparatively small duty would materially relieve the far- mer. He must oppose the second reading of the bill. Mr. CURWEN explained. While the landholder had only L. 68 out of his L. 100 from the different charges upon him, the fundholder pocketed the whole of his L. 100. It was impossible to proceed with the present system of taxation, as one sixth of the means of the community bad been taken away. He should always maintain that the fundhoider was bound to pay for the security of his pro- perty, as well as any other class of proprietors. Captain GORDON wished for an equalization of the duties of malt in Scotland. Lord CASTLEREAGH moved that the resolution of 1819 should bo read, which declared, that a surplus of five millions, over the expenditure, was absolutely necessary to support the public credit. He then rose- to redeem his pledge bv opposing this bill. If we were in a situation to get rid of any of the present taxes, still this was not the tax which hecould recommend to have repealed. Hewas not afraid ofthe British Parliament doing any thing to break down the public credit of the country, wl Hi had raised us so high among the nations. But he warned the , House not to admit such a measure indirectly ; and by so | doing to reduce Ihe public creditor to depend on the preca- rious loans which might be effected by a bankrupt Exche- , quer. The repeal of this tax would not carry the smallest j quantum of relief to any one farmer in the country, which i he. or the whole farming interest would be able to discover. , This tax was not laid incidentally, but as a branch of a large system, solemly recognised by the British Parlia- ment, as a means of preserving entire the whole public credit ofthe country. This fact he ( Lord. Castlereagh) wished to press particularly on the attention ofthe House. In no degree bad the consumption of barley been decreased by this tax; on the contrary, it bad increased in a very considerable ratio ; and he could assure the Hou e that the price of beer had been twice reduced since this tax was laid on ; and so far had it not been burdensome on the consu- mer. The amount of the tax. he believed, was three far- ( things on a gallon ofbeer ; and if that was taken off. how } coulii the consumer of beer feel any relief when he drank it hy the quart ? The increase in the consumption ofbeer exceeded 1.200,000 barrels a year since this tax was im- posed ; so that they were now looking at Ihe surface of the question, rather than going into its proper and minute details. He was sure that the landed interest would not accept a paltry relief at the expence ofthe finances and the public credit ofthe country. He thought that, ifit were . proper to deprive the revenue of any tax, they should ra- ther propose the repeal ofthe window and salt tax, which bore more on the agricultural interest, and the poorer ( orders of the people of this country. I fall the tases in the state were to be repealed to- morrow, it would give no ; relief to tbe farmer, except they could go a little farther, j and increase the consumption of his commodities. It was I better to have three millions coming into the sinking fund ; than nothing at all. Ministers were occupied in conside < rations of reduction'to that point which w ould not interfere j with the public credit, or the wants of the slate ; but they , did, in 1819, lay on three millions of taxes to support that public credit. Would they then in two years allow that the country was so bankrupt in resources as to be obliged to give up one million and a half, which might influence our meansof maintainingpeacewith Europe and the world? This was not a question between the House and the Go- vernment, but between tbe House and the country, and ho was sure they would view it as such. If this measure should be carried, it woiild then be for the Government to say what it would do for its ow n honour with the public creditor ; but if it should be carried, it would bea most suicidal measure for the country. Lord A. HAMILTON said, that last year he exerted himself strenuously in order to procure a repeal of this tax ; and he remained of tbe same opinion still as to its impolicy. Those who supported tjiis tax, on the ground j of its being necessary for the exigencies of the State, should shew that those exigencies could not be reduced or I got rid of. He was one of those who believed we could not persevere in our present system of expenditure, accord- 1 ing to our present system of taxation. The consequence ! of this tax . in Scotland had been to increase illicit distilla- : tion to such a degree, that the Magistrates had found their duties too, irksome for execution. The Noble Lord then noticed the circumstance of a Noble Friend of his ( the Earl of Fife, we believe), who had been removed from an office in the Royal Household shortly after he had given his vote in favour of II • measure—( hear, hear). The re- moval of the Noble Earl was highly creditable to him as a man of honour ; he had acted in conformity with his own feelings, and also according to the' dictates, if not the ac- tual instructions ofbis ( Lord Fife's) constituents—( hear, hear). He felt it necessary to say so much in favour of his Noble Friend, whose manly and independent conduct was highly honourable both to his head and his heart— ( hear hear). Tie hoped that the case of his Noble Friend (" the Earl of Fife) would be a warning to. other Hon. ( the : Members— that it would evince to them that there were certain situations, however honourable in any other point of view, which could not be held consistently with an in- dependent vote in that House—( hear, hear).— The Noble Lord concluded by supporting the motion.—( Loud cries t of Question, question .'—" Lord FifeK Lord Fife." CORRKCTFl) STFFCtt OF THE EARL OF FIFE. The lively indignation excited throughout the countrr, at the paltry insult offered to the Earl of FirE, for having done his . duty faithfully to his Country a^ d his Constituents in Parliament, will render the corrected Report of his explanatory Speech in the House truly interesting. It is taken from the Morr. ing Chronicle. • The Eail of FIFE rose amidst, loud cheers. Tie stated the reluctance he felt to be obliged to intreat the indulgence of the House for a short time-; hut placed * s he was by what, fall from the Noble Lord ( Lord A. Hamilton) it was impossible to avoid making a few ob- servations. He was notef. cn ambitious of engaging the attention, or occupying the valuable time of the House, and it would be more congenial to his feelings not lo speak on the subject alluded to. Occasions might occur, when to be silent would warrant a conclusion to he drawn he little wished, and hoped not to deserve. lie had no hesi- tation, however, in declaring, that the hasty mode adopted lately regarding the office he held in the King's Family, was not rendered more necessary at the present moment i than for a year past — and certainly by no change of eon- ; duct on his part. Sufficiently did he announce, a con- siderable time. ago. . by communications and explanations addressed to a proper quarter, his desire and readiness to retire, from his inability to attend regularly to the duties, and some of them in Parliament, to prevent, disagree- ! ment— owing much to being obliged to watch over the interests of a vast number of people, under circumstances j cruel and vexatious. , Delicacy alone prevented him last ' jrear from relinquishing, till after the coronation, a place • he had accepted under particular circumstances; and it was a satisfaction tobe released from it for various reasons. • But the time selected was not the most suitable, having, received orders to attend the King to Ireland— and after , a vote given in the House, advised by bis constituents, j in unison with one on a similar occasion last year, urg. « d : bv the state ofthe country, and the dictates o'f his judg- ment. As the resolution communicated so abruptly was considered as a reprimand for that vote ( he had it from authority), lie must own lie did not repent it. Ifit was intended as a signal of terror to alarm others, he left it to Hon. Gentlemen the mode of appreciating it, to whom it • miglitapply. He always understood that resistance when > successful was not called a crime; but there ( in ihe House) it seemed to be construed otherwise Voting with the minority of lasr year, no notice was taken— but acting with the majority of the present, he wa- visited with high displeasure. He did not feel hurt— he was not offended, he trusted— be would ever be ready to act when necessary, in a fearless, independent, and, as far ns de- pended on his abilities, in a becoming manner. And that . his loyalty to the Throne ( for such a proceeding would in no ways alter his conduct)— his devotion to the House of the Monarch, to whose gracious will he was indebted solely for the favour he lately enjoyed, would always ap- pear, " true as the dial to tlie sun, although it was not always shone upon." In referring to the question, he was bound to observe, that in whatever light be viewed it, he considered the lax impolitic and unjust in principle — baneful in Ihe effects— dangerous and ruinous in the re- sult. The Right Hon. Gentleman could not complain ; of having met vexatious opposition from various Mem- . hers, particularly those from the North of the Tweed, who raised their voices against tbe odious tax. If the state ofthe Southern part of the kingdom afforded such reason of complaint. Scotland was in a worse situation ; for with all the perseverance and ingenuity, Scottish Agriculturists were known to direct their efforts, there existed causes which neither they or the Right Hon. Gentleman ( Mr. Vansittart) could successfully struggle against. Late seasons, Ihe chilling blasts of the climate, added to the complicated machinery of the Excise Laws rendered the state of the kingdom deplorable in the extreme. In many parts of Scotland the religious and orderly character ofthe people was in danger of wearing away, and becom- ing what it was before the wise and politic custom pur- sued, creating a revolution in the habits and behaviour of the inhabitants, often described— making them a loy 1. moral, and industrious community; and by no one bet- ter pourtrayed than by a Learned Gentleman, by whose exertions future generations had a chance of being greatly benefitted. The contented and quiet peasant might be changed into a ferocious banditti, whose oaths were con- sidered as of no importance, except to escape from the toils of the Excise, to evade fines ; grasping lo retain, perhaps, the only pittance to support numerous families. The consequence was. that no less smuggling went on from home illicit distillation, and there was an increase of the Foreign, notwithstanding all methods and cx- pence to prevent them. The whole population was in motion, and as a Gallant General once remarked, bow- could ir be otherwise, when all drank Poteen? Noble Lords, Hon. Gentlemen, nay, the Lord Lieutenant par- took of the prohibited liquor, and no Parliament Whisky to be met with, except in large towns, and the greatest part of the spirits from the large slills was sent out of the country, and people little inclined to hazard their for- tunes in establishing small ones, from the uncertainty of the continuance of the laws. Was it therefore to be borne in a state of peace, that the duties should amount to one- fourth more than the price of the grain, then ofa very in- ferior quality, in a country where the harvest home was called a winter, when stagnation pervaded the agricul- tural and commercial interests alike, where part of the consumption arose from the destruction caused by Ihe Revenue Officers, goaded on rigidly to do their duty— like the inroads of the Guerillas, with the terrors of a Spanish avto dafe He did not mean to blame the Ex cise Board, the worthy Chairman, or the Officers gene rally— they often interfered for the poor people. The subject had for a long time engaged the attention of all ranks in Scotland. Remonstrances sent— plans resorted to— but the true cause was always kept out of view— moderate duties— simple rules for distillation; if such measures were adopted; the revenue would increase, the country greatly meliorated and alleviated, Magistrates and all ranks active, as they had commenced before the late additional tax, which had relaxed the efforts of the well- inclined to put down and prevent all evasions of the law. He appealed then to Members belonging to Eng- land. who bar! ever shewn a disposition not only to listen to the complaints of their fellow- subjects, but to com- miserate and assist those people from all parts of tho world— he requested the Gentlemen from Iteland, from what had passed, and was passing there, not to tarry— he called on those connected with Scotland to consider the state of their country and the distresses of the people, whose eyes were on the votes and resolutions of the night — he implored his Majesty's Ministers to think well on the danger to be apprehended in times of restless irrita- bility. caused often by no imaginary grievances, to con- ciliate when policy and interest dictated, to be contented with moderate taxes, instead of attempting to force the payment of enormous ones. He concluded in the ener- getic language of the Scottish Poet, Thomson— *' — Ye masters, then, Be mindful of tbe rough laborious hand That sinks you soft in elegance and ease— Be mindful of those limbs, in russet clad. Whose toil to yours is warmth and graceful pride. And, oh, be mindful of that sparing board. Which covers your's with luxury profuse, Makes your glass sparkle and your sense rejoice, Nor cruelly demand what tbe deep rains And all involving winds have swept away." After apologizing humbly for detaining tbe House so long, he said, as it was always irksome to speak of one's self, he threw himself on the urbanity, candour, and Courtesy usually shewn to justify and pardon the ne- cessity. Lord FOLKESTONE contended that it would even be for the benefit of the fundholder himself, that public faith should be broken with him ; since, if such a course was not adopted, the whole of his property might be lost.— ( Cries of Divide). Mr. WESTE RN replied, when the House divided— For the second reading - - 144 Against it - - - 242 Majority against the bill - 98 The other orders were disposed of, and the House ad- journed at half- past twelve o'clock. Wednesday, April 4. At four o'clock the Speaker took the Chair, when the House was counted, and there being but thirty- six Mem- bers present, the House adjourned till to- morrow. Thursday, April 5. Mr. MONTEITH presented a petition from the corn factors of Glasgow against the average bill. Mr. HUME give notice. ftikt he would, on Tuesday, move for leave to bring in a bill to disqualify certain offi- cers of the Ordnance department from sitting iu Parlia- ment, , - Mr. CURWEN moved for leave to bring in a Bill for ihe repeal of the Husbandry Horse ' Fax ; bill after some discussion the Hon.

Mr. 13 AftING presented a petition from the merchants J of London, trading to the north of Europe, praying that i the trade with the American colonies and the: north of Europe might be placed on the same footing by a pro- portionate adjustment of the duties.— Ordered to be print- ed. >, • In answer to a question from Mr. J. P. GRANT, it was stated bv Mr. W A LLACE that communications hail been received from the Swedish Government on the sub- ject of the alteration- of the duties on timber. The House then went into a Committee, when Mr. WALLACE said he would not long detain the House on this. subject. There- were so many objections to the proposed amendment of the timber • duties, that he was of opinion they had struck upon the fairest- line be- tween all parties concerned. ' File alteration proposed was taken from the best evidence before the Committee; and on those grounds he could make no- concession as to the present- measure ; because, however useful to the revenue, this proposition would show no disposition on their parts to give an advantage to foreign commerce. It evas found necessary lo lay a duty on Colonial timber, ill. order to satisfy the Northern Powers, who might prevent us from getting any timber from their States. He bad received above 100 schemes, but they all agreed in - one thing, and that was lo bring about a monopoly of th? trade with Norway. The measure now proposed would give some advantage to Russia, as compared with her,- competitor, Norway. All the evidence in favour of die North Ameri- can timber trade seemed to originate in the bad debts of the merchants who had been engaged in tho Norway deal trade. Norway bail had her full share in this trade tor a number . of years ; he therefore thought that some relief should be given to the Russian trade and that of Norway at the same time. Under the plan he had to propose Norway, would have I.. 1 12s. and Ru sia L. 1 13s. which would be as equal as could be. The proposition of a Noble Lord, if admitted, would give double the advan- tage to Norway, and, consequently, Ihe effect of it would be lo give her a perfect monopoly of ibis trade. It was necessary to grant an equality to Russia, otherwise we might find Norw ay incapable, of supplying us with timber. He thought that considerable protection was due to the shipping interest, and to the colonies of this country, and- this measure was intended to convey that protection. Sir II. PA RNELL had heard nothing to alter his opi- nion on thissubject. The Right Honourable Gentleman had taken no notice of the tax on Ihe consumer of deals in this country, and the whole of his proposition went to give Russia an advantage over Norway. He should propose as an amendment on the resolution which was moved on the previous debate, " That after the 5th of January 1825, the duty on foreign timber should be L. 2 per load of fifty cubic feet, and L. 2 5s. for every load of deals of the same contents." Whilst strangers were withdrawn, the House divided four times— On Lord Althorpe's Amendment in favour of Norway Deals— Ayes, 24— Noes, 75 — Majority for the original Resolution, 51. On Mr. Marrytitt's Amendment, against reducing the Duty on Foreign Timber— Ayes, 17— Noes, 71— Ma- jority for the original Resolution, 64. On Sir M. W. Ridley's motion to reduce the proposed duty on Colonial Timber from 10s. lo 5s. per load ; and lo take off only 5s. per load from the Foreign Duty- Ayes, 15— Noes, 70— Majority for the oiigiual Resolu- tion. 55. On Sir Henry Parnell's motion to equallize all the Duties at the end of five years— Ayes. 15— Noes, 54 — Majority for rbe original Resolution, 39. ' I'lie other Orders of the Day were then disposed of, and the House adjourned at Two o'clock. Friday, April 6. A private Bill ( a vestry Bill, of no interest but to the parties concerned.) gave rise to a warm discussion, brought forward by Sir Robert Wilson's alluding to what had passed in the Committee sitting to inquire into its merits or demerits, in which the friends and opponents of the measure appear to have exceeded all decorum. Mr. Hume proceeded so far as to propose a Resolution of censure on Mr. Sumner, the Chairman of the Committee ; hot the subject was ultimately suffered to drop at the point where it was oiigiryally taken up.— The Order ofthe Day then being moved, for the House resolving itself inter a Com- mittee of Supply, the motion was opposed by Mr. Creevey, who proposed a very long and sweeping amendment, ad- verting to the number of petitions that had been presented to the House oil the subject of Economy and Retrench- ment, and the neglect with which ihey had been treated ; the case of tbe Earl of" Fife, and various topics; and con- eluding with stating, that under such circumstances it was wholly unnecessary to go into Committees of Supply. The amendment was opposed by Lord Castlereagh ; And Mr; Tierney stated, that though he might not perhaps object to the various parts of . he Resolution, if given in detail, he was not prepared to support it in the gross, or iu the sweeping form in which it had been exhibited to the House, j Upon this Ilesoluti. n a Jong discussion took place, and { ultimately the II use divided ; when the numbers were—- [ For the resolution, - 56-— Against it. 120. — Mr. Hume then proposed a Resolution, but it was ultimately with- drawn, and the House went into a Committee on the Army Estimates, when Lord Palmerston proposed that £ 50.418 should be granted for the allowances of the office of Secretary at War ; Colonel Davies moved as an amendment, that £ 45,000 should be substituted in the room of £ 50,4] 8. Upon this a discussion of some length arose, When the amendment was lost on a division, 67 voting for, and 106 against it. LONDON, April 7 THE QUARTER'S REVENUE.

And we have the great satisfaction to know, although the accounts of the Irish revenue cannot be made up till the arrival of the accounts from Ireland, including the 5th of April, that the ac- counts of that period, of the quarter which have been re- ceived, shew an increase much exceeding the small dimi- nution above mentioned in the English revenue.

Let- ters were yesterday received in town from Corfu, stating that an Insurrection had broken out in the Grerk Islands ofa most formidable kind, and for which secret prepara- tions had been making for along time. It is understood that the Insurgents have been supplk'd from Odessa with warlike stores of every description, that numbers- of Of- ficers have received Russian pa.- xports IO pass over to the Islands,, and that considerable treasure has been amassed to forward the attempt. There is no doubt but that the Greeks act in concert with Russia, and that what was foreseen by every able statesman will speedily be realised; The Emperor Alexander will make- the emancipation of the"' Greeks the prefect for an attack On Constantinople; and : it is most, probable that this was to be his eirUitiatent for acquiescing in- the subjugation - of- Italy by Austria.— i Here then, if this " news, which is communicated to us by letters of high authority, should be confirmed, we havtjj the commencement ofa war in which ' we cannot fail to be involved.-' unless we are willing to submit to the unbi'idii ed ambition of these Despots, and- quietly seethe' Turk is!'* dominions,, tire Ionian Islands, Malta, Italy, and Sicily, delivered Over to them.

Shortly after six o'clock the Lord Mayor, who presided on this occasion, accompanied by upwards of 50 Noblemen and Gentlemen, Members of Parliament, and other persons of distinction entered the room, and about 500 Gentlemen sat down to an excellent dinner..

Tbe indictment having been read, the Solicitor- Gene- ral stated that he passed from the charge as laid on tbe statute, and restricted it to that of common law.

To b e Let. for the Hem ( tinder of a Lease of Sixty Year from Whitsunday, 179}. RSNUE F VK M of UPPER, MIDDLE, AND X NETHER DORBSHILL. situated in the Parish of LOGIE BUCHAN, along the Turnpike Road from Peter- head to Aberdeen, and distant only five miles from the seaport of Newburgh. The Farm contains about 180 acres, all Arable, under a regular rotation of cropping, and in a high state of cultivation. The greater part of it was lately limed and dunged; and a freld of about 20 acres of excellent Meadow has been drained, pared, and burned, at an expence of not less than £ 5 per acre, and has not yet borne a Crop. The Dwelling House, upon the Farm is two stories lifgb, arid slated-— and the Rooms, which are neatly fini- shed, are well adapted for the accommodation of a gen- teel family. The Offices too are extensive, built of stone and lime, and slated. And there is also a good Threshing Mill, which the Tenant may have, at a fair valuation. There are likewise accommodations for a Wright and Blacksmith, close to the side of the turnpike road. The Tenant will be entitled to enter to the Houses and natural Gra^ s at Whitsunday ensuing, and may have the Whole of the Crop then on the ground, or the Fodder with- out the grain, as well as the Dung aud Turnip- field, at a valuation of men mutually chosen. The Houses and Incloaures on the Farm cost about £ 1500 ; atid the Tenant is entitled to receive the value of them at the end of the Lease, with the exception of ^ 100 already paid by the Proprietor. On the whole, a Farm in such good order, and with so favourable an entry, is seldom to be met with. Further particulars may be learned, by applying to ]\ Iissrs. Robertson and Gray, Writers in Peterhead; or to David Mutch eon, Advocate, Aberdeer, ^ ummarj) of } j? oltttcj$. AT the time of our last publication, the incon- sistencies and gross improbabilities of accounts, re- ceived through the medium of the French Journals, of the operations carrying on in Naples, induced us to believe the whole founded on falsehood. Bear- ing iii mind, that when a French army approached Naples under CHAMPIONET, who was treacher- ously admitted to Fort St. Elmo, which commands the city, the citizens defended the place for two days and three nights, and only ceased to resist when they found the guns of the fortress readv to be opened upon them, we could not believe it possi- ble, that a disciplined army, of more than sixty thousand men, sl » ould allow itself t » be cowed by the very first revt rse, and the inhabitants to receive as friends a foreign army avowedly sent to enslave them. That the Lazzaroni, scarcely one degree above the brutes iii information, might be induced bv even alms to cheer the Austrians on their entry was easily conceivable : but that the well informed classes in Naples should express satisfaction upon such an occasion was just as improbable, as that Austrians entering the cities of Philadelphia or Washington, as invaders, should be received with ae clamations of joy. That bribes might have been employed to thwart the plans ofthe patriots was ex- ceedingly probable, for all the advantages gained against the liberties of France, with very few ex- ceptions indeed, were in this manner purchased ; but that the intelligent and spirited Neapolitans should at once give the lie to tlieir solemn defiant tions, that they were readv to devote both lives and fortunes in the cause of Liberty, did appear utterly incredible. Another week lias now elapsed, and although it appears to obtain general credit, that the Austrian army is actually in possession of Naples, no account to that effect has reached this country through un- suspicious channels. At Genoa, on the 26th of March, the Commandant informed the garrison that General WALMOCEN had been defeated, and that the Neapolitans were drawing near to their Piedmontese friends ; and it is quite certain, that throughout Piedmont the greatest activity prevails in training troops, and in all sorts of warlike pre parations : but we still wait for authentic accounts of what events have really taken place in Naples, although letters both from Genoa and other places state, that the Austrians entered without resistance on the 24- th ult. A very important fact, developing in part the plans of the Emperor ALEXANDER, has lately been communicated to our Government, viz. that a general insurrection has broken out in the j Ionian Islands, the insurgents receiving Russian supplies by the way of Odessa. The time has been, when such an act of hostility would have been promptly resented ; but such is the condition to which false policy has reduced Britain, that the Northern Antocrate knows he has nothing to fear beyond remonstrances, however injurious his con- duct may be. A private letter from Paris has also the following paragraph :— The arrival of Count NESSELRODE has put all Paris in an uproar. He conies with a proposal from the Emperor of Russia, to suffer the passage of a Russian army of 100,000 or 200,000, according to circumstances, through France into Spain, of which a certain number, some say - 10,000, shall rest in France, and be replaced by an equal number of French troops for the Spa- nish campaign." We cannot believe that the peo- ple of France will submit to this indignity and na- tional degradation. But the inability of the Russian Emperor to proceed in until enterprises without sub • siJics is well known ; and unless he be determined to allow his troops to live at free quarters in friendly countries, he will find it no' easy matter to cou- cotiditions imposed by tbe House of Commons, we per- ceive that almost all those whose opinion will influence Government would be not only satisfied, but grateful for the removal of their disabilities. The multitude may be made to believe that, their Religion is in danger, and it is droll enough that many in this country, of the same in- tellectual calibre, think the Protestant Religion in danger from the same cause. Ihe Catholic Clergy too will, generally speaking, act on this belief of the majority of their flocks ; but the way to prove both mistaken is to pass the Hill, and show by its operation ( as we have no doubt would be the result) tiiat Protestants and Catholics may enjoy equal civil rights without the least injury to their respective Religions. Just as otir paper is going to press, we receive accounts that can no longer be doubted, that the Austrians entered Naples on the 24th of last month ; and there cannot exist the least doubt, that the people have been betrayed both by their King and their General Officers, who pretended to favour the Revolution, while they had secretlv engaged to prevent aiw scri « nts opposition to the progress ofthe invaders. If the parts acted by the Kings of Spain and Naples be not sufficient to convince nations of the lolly of expecting Princes to join heartily in re- volutionary movements, necessary to the welfare and liberties of their subjects, it must be fruitless to at- tempt to convince them by argument. W hat should we say, if the French were toset about a new order of things under the auspices of Louis, or the Duke " ANGOULEME ? The Prince Regent of Naples, who, in his proclamations and correspondence with his Father, expressed himself in terms so lofty con- cerning his devotion to the cause of liberty, and the independence of his country, appeared upon a' balcony to bow and smile upon the Austrians as they entered. The Prizes at Kite's Cotr. ECK were this Session award- ed according to the suffrages of the Students. This is only the second time iu which this Plan has been pursued, but the success which, in borh cases, has attended its adoption, leave no room to doubt of its efficacy. The abiiitiesof the individuals, the progress which they had made in their respective studies, and a regard to their general good behaviour, being uniformly kept in view, the de- cisions were in consequence such as proved no less credit- able to the successful Students, than to the discrimination of those who, by their votes, considered them worthy of the Prizes which they ob'ained.

PERTH, Gth April— On Wednesday, about four o'clock in the afternoon, an attempt was made to iauncl « the large and elegant steam- boat just finished in the yard of Mr. Brown, ship builder. Unfortunately. the vessel slipped half- way off; and although it was an uncommon!/ high tide, every effort to move her farther proved ineffec- tual. The concourse of people both on the shore and on Friartown Island was immense. While the workmen were endeavouring to contplete the launch, a large new- cable which had been thrown across the river, ami fasten- ed on the island opposite, was wantonly cut by the Capt. of a sloop which was dropping down the river. They, however, succeeded in launching this fieautrfn! vessel At five o'clock on Thursday morning. She is named the Tourist— destined to ply between Aberdeen and I. utli ; and is supposed to be the largest of the kind ever j et built in Scotland. S'e. uri Vessels, to run between T. eitli and London, are now building in the Thames. One of these, named the City of Edinburgh, was launched on Saturday se'ennigbt; she measures 400 tons ; and it is said, will cost 20,0001- Scm- Humanity Class— 2d Hum.

The Annual Competition for the PREMIUMS offer- ed by the Aberdeenshire Agricultural Association, for Draught and Carriage Stallions, was held yesterday, upon the Links of Aberdeen, when the following prizes were awarded, viz.

Fifteen Draught Staliions appeared on the ground ; and it is but justice to the owners to remaik, that we have seldom had an opportunity of seeing so many fine animals collected together. Of the four successful Horses, three of them had formerly gained Premiums in this County ; and the stock after them begins to exhibit a srbstantial improvement in that important branch of agriculture.

The following anecdote will shew that her Ma- jesty is still the ofjject of persecution and insult.— Did the French police dare to act such a part, with- out English sanction ? The QUEEN'S Courier was stopped last week at Lyons on his way to Rome, and had all his dispatches seized by the French Police ! his person was searched, and his letters were taken from him ; a seal was put upon Iris bag, which was sent to Paris. The Courier was desirous of conveying the dispatches to Paris, but was prevented, when he returned to England, aMd arrived at Branden- burg!) House on Saturday night. Lord HOOD wrote im- mediately to Lord CASTLEREAGIL who replied, that an instant communication should be made to the British Am- bassador at Paris. The QUEEN'S Courier above alluded to was CARLO FORTE, one of the principal witnesses exn- mined on the proceedings in the House of Lords against her MAJESTY, and whose testimony completely exposed the perjury of the notorious SACCHI. ' I'he dispatches, of which lie was the bearer, we understand, were the papers ne- cessary to effect, the sale of her MAJESTY'S Italian proper- ty on the Lake of Como, & c. It may be also presumed that he kindly undertook the delivery of various letters from his countrymen hereto their relatives and friends in Italy. W7e learn that her MAJESTY feels much hurt at this proceeding, andthat theChevalier VASSALI, who only arrived in town last Friday is, by berorders, to set out, with CARLO FORTE this day for Paris, with instructions that all the letters shall be opened.— Globe.

There was no particular business before the Synod ou this occasion. We are happy to hear, that on the 29th March last, our townsman. JAMES ANDREW. LL. D. Principal of the Honourable the East India Company's Military Seminary, at Croydon, in Surrey, was unanimously elected, by bal- lot, a Fellow of the Royal Society of London. The Managers of the Shipwrecked Seamen's Fund gratefully acknowledge the Receipt of £ 4 10s. from the Reverend Mr. COCK— being a Collection made at the Parish Church of Cruden, in aid of that Institution. The Earl of Aberdeen generously gave for distribution, in the parishes of Methlic and Tarves, Forty Bolls of Meal, in the severest part of last winter. Upon Monday last, the Justices of Peace, upon the complaint of STEPHEN PELLATT, Esq. sentenced John Berry, a refractory Apprentice, to one month's confine- ment in Bridewell, for irregular attendance at the Broad- ford Works, insolence, and disobedience of orders. We are extremely concerned to state, that on Friday last, the Earl of Kintore met with a very serious accident while hunting with his fox- hounds. His Lordship's collar bone is broken ; but we have the pleasure to say. that the bone having been almost immediately set, lie is in a fair way of recovery. Fortunately the accident hap- pened in the immediate neighbourhood of Brechin Castle, where he now remains under the care of Messrs. Ogilvy and Sandeman, and is keeping free of fevei\— Dundee Paper, The ensuing week being positively the Last Week ofthe Panorama of Waterloo, the Proprietors, on pur* that no person may be prevented from witnessing the re^ presentation of th<; se memorable Battles, have made the ADMISSIONS HALF PRICE; this, we are convinced, will be a great inducement for the community at large, to visit a Painting of such known merit.— See Advertisement. On Saturday last, two Sheriff officers arrived at Glas- gow from Nairn, in search of a person of the name of David Howie, who had broken out of the jail there, where he had been confined for theft, and were fortunate enough to find him in the hands of the Police, he being a well known character in Glasgow, and under sentence of ba- nishment frem the county. 1 hoy accordingly look bin) into custody, and set out with him to Nairn, where be i to stand trial for the theft. A few days ago, there was dug up, on the Farm of Whitestone, in tbe parish of Skene, by the labourers, while in the process of trenching, a rude earthen Urn containing bones, ir, a state of almost complete decay 11 is remarkable, that this is the third of the same kind that has been got upon the property, one of which ha: been fortunately obtained in nearly an entire state, and is now preserved by the proprietor. Whether there is any connection betwixt these and a Druids' temple which stood there, or they are the pious care of an after age, it is for the antiquarian to determine. A set of sw indlers are at present going round the west country, imposingon the unwarydiBerent articles of Scotch and English manufacture, pretending them to be foreign They generally dress as seamen, and tarry only small par- cels. Some of these impostors have been pretty successful iu tbe neighbourhood of Paisley, selling an imitation of French cambric, worth about 2s. per yard, as high as 12s, and 14s. They also carry lace and silk handkerchiefs for which they charge exorbitant prices. On Saturday fast, a Summons before tbe Court of Session, raised at the instance of the Kirk- Session of Iireclnn. was executed against James Watt, publisher of the Montrose Review, on account of a letter in his paper ofthe 2Gih January'last, deemed to be a gross libel on ihat body. A mcjst daring robbery was committed at Montrose on the night of Monday last, in the house of Mr. Jolly Tbe villains having entered while the family were asleep, proceeded in the most cool and deliberate manner, to re- fresh themselves with the choicest viands tbat the cellar and larder could afford, and then rummaged the drawers and side- boards, from which they abstracted silver plate, and various articles of wearing apparel, to a considerable amount.

POSTS CR I PT. LONDON. April 10 The second reading of tbe Roman Carbolic Bill, which stood for this night in the House of Lords, was last nioht postponed, on the motion of Lord Donoughmore, until Monday. The grounds assigned by the Noble Earl for tl'. e proposed delay were, to afford time for the arrival of several Peers, now on their way to town, and who are desirous to be present at the debate, as al. o for public meet- ings now in progress to declare tlieir sentiments on tile subject. It is now said that his Majesty's intention of visiting. Ireland is given up. Jf he had gone in regal state the expence would have been considerable, and it would not have been consistent with tbe King's station to have gpu » to any part of his own dominions, under an i/ u- ogui! o. Yesterday the Neapolitan Prince whoarrived 111 Lon- don a few days since, bad a long interview with Lord Castlereagh, We understand, that when Mrs. Becber wasprrsenteel at the last Drawing- room the King was graciously pleased to advance three or four steps to meet her, and extending both his bands, received and sa uted her ( as takes place on all presentations) with a Boy- al- ki.- s. IL- r Majesty will hold a drawing room, i. t ner house, as soon as the alterations in it are completed. ^ HWe understand that the measure which was in contem plation, of reducing tbe duties 011 French wines, anH certain, other articles, upon the investigation of which Mr. TVewen has been so long engaged, is abandoned. Whether this isowing to the unwillingness of the French to assent to any reciprocal Tariff; or that it proceeds from an apprehension of loss to the revenue, we known nor. but the consequence is tbat the preventive service, with jit its expcnce and casualties, must be persevered in. SPANISH CORTES.— At the Sitting of the Cort * em the 22d ult. the Minister delivered a Mes. age fiotn the King, communicating the late events in Piedmont. Thanks were voted to Ins Majesty for the communication, and Selior Moreno Guer/ a propo- eel ihat fortunate revolu- tion should IK celebrated by public rejoicings. The dis- cussion on ttie plan proposed by the Special Committee nf Public Safety was resumed, in the heat of debate, Senor Moreno Cuerra said that Naples was the constitutional advanced guard. Spain tlx? centre, and Portugal tbe rear; that if the first was attacked, it behoved Spain to be on her guard. Two thousand Spaniards in Sicily, be con- tinued, will maintain order better than twenty thousand Neapolitans; and, observing tbat several of the Minister* were present, he asked whether there would be ar. y objc c- tion to send two thousand men to Sicily ? Count Toieno complained of the scandalous conduct of foreigners under the Spanish fhg, who were engaged in the Slave Trado on the coasts of Africa and America. ' The private letters by tbe Hamburgh Mail, contain some opinions rattier unfavourable as far as recards the state of Prussia. The writers state that there is lilt e doubt tbat tbe King will be obliged to resort to measnr s to counteract the discontented disposition of bis sttbiect-. The standing army of Prussia is calculated to amount to between 70 and 80.000 men ; and it is asserted that the Ca- binet of Berlin has found it necessary to take measures so far lo augment it as to raise it to 100.000 men, The insurrection in Walaehia and Moldavia is men- tioned ill a let er from Vienna, in tbe Paris Papers 1 f Thursday. It is there said that it is of serious character, rind connected with a general plan formed by the Greeks for withdrawing themselves from the Ottoman Porte.
