A great proportion of the Land is of llie 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, bavins; 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 for the produce, and an easy supply of Lime, Coal, and other necessaries, ' The Property is fourteen miles distant from Aberdeen, nnd ten from Peterhead"; so that il not only possesses, within itself, the convenience of an an excellent Fish- market, and exhaustless manure, but lies also within a single stage of the best grain markets, and most considerable sea- ports upon the east coast. The Houses and Farm Steadings being all the property ofthe 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 letrte 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 Cotliill. 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 offers may be addressed till the last day of October next when the now Setting will take place at Collieston.

It is with great concern that we have to advert to such violent proceedings on the part of the Tenants 611 the Estates of Sutherland and I'ovntsfield, in the County of Sutherland, as disgraced those of Culrain in Ross- shire, last vear. We have known for some time, that proceedings have been depend- ing both before the Sheriff and Supreme Courts, re- specting the possession of. Griiids bv certain Ten- ants : and we looked forward for results that might render those disagreeable measures unnecessary, which are now 111 force against the present deluded . occupants of these Gruids From some mistaken notions and advice, they have been led to commit Acts of which they must ultimately repent, as well as to reject offers which have been made to them for their comfortable settlement in their native land. From the best motives, anil with regard towards the comfort ofthe people, the Marquis of Stafford offer- ed Lots of land , of moderate extent, near the coast, to the removing Tenants of the Povntsfield Estate, as w ell as to those on Ins Lordship's own Property ; and this offer was enforced by the strong recom- mendations of several of the most respectable gentle- men of the Countv, in personal communications with the people. All this, however, had not the desired effect; and we are sorry to sav, that last year the Sheriff officers and parties accompanying them, were obstructed in the performance of their duty at Grinds, more than once ; thev were literally Stripped of their Clothes, deprived of their Papers, and Switched off from the bounds ofthe Property ; and we are obliged now to add, that about ten days ago, when the Officers and party were dispatched for the purpose of legally summoning the people to remove, they met with such resistance, both at G ruiils and Strathbrora, as to render it necessary to obtain a military force ( part of the 41st Regt.) to quell these riotous proceedings, to, enforce an ac- ceptance of the Summonses at Gruids, and to eject ( he Tenants of Strathbrora. About 30 years ago, the introduction of exten- sive sheep farming was marked by riot and blood- shed in Ross shire ; but until within these two years past no similar resistance was ever offered ; nor would we now to have to record this blot on the cha- racter of the Highlanders, had it not. been for the toisehievous working of designing individuals by whom they were ill- advised and misled, and by whom their passions are inflamed and their prejudices flat- tered. Ufttil 1819 no resistance was offered to the civil authorities, except what we have just alluded to. The people quittted their ancient habitations with sorrow and regret; but thev did so in 1111 orderly and peaceable manner. Numbers of them emigrat- ed ; but many of them accepted proffered settlements iicar the sea, where themselves and their families now are, in tlie enjoyment of the rewards of meri- torious laboiir, in all the cleanliness and pleasure of well constructed and comfortable cottages. Rut un- happily their weak side was found out, and their credulity wrought upon, until they were impressed bv the belief that they were barbarously treated, and that thev Should walk in the " GOOD 01. D WAY," that is— retain possession of their ancient settle- ments, which it was not possible for them to do, without violating the laws of the country, and bringing misery and destruction upon fheirown heads, llence lias arisen all the shameful riots and illeoal acts, committed in these parts during these two vears past. These discontents are quite free of any dissatisfaction of a political nature. The only feel- ings ofthe Highlanders is the fear of being obliged to seek their bread in a foreign land ; but we are well satisfied th'at no' such fear need hurry them on to acts of violence in Suthcrlandshire, aS no man need leave the country for want of land or employ- ment, who is inclined to remain in it. We expect to be able in our next paper to give an account of the quiet termination of these disgraceful proceed- ings.— Inverness Courier, April 12. CUMBER!. A N D COUNTY MKETING— In pur- suance of a requisition to the High Sheriff", signed hy be- twen three hundred and four hundred of the most respect- able landed proprietors in Cumberland, a meeting took place at Wigton oil the 5! h inst. to petition Parliament, praying for a diminution of the public burdens— for such rigid economy in the expenditure as may render a re- duction of taxation practicable and safe— and more especi- ally for Mime reform in the system of representation.

PARTS, April 9 Private letters state, tiiat OIL tlie ' 21st a smart liattlc was fought near Galata, a small town of Moldavia, between tlie Greeks and the l urks, in which the latter were completely de- feated. The Prince of Moldavia, against whom the Greeks have risen, is the same who lately punished the linkers of his capital in a truly oriental manner, liv nailing theinhy the ears to the doorsof theirshops. The Lausanne Gazette of tiic .' id says, " The post from Milan is still wanting. This sudden sus- pension, at a moment when the season can cause 110 obstacle, gives rise to various conjectures, which the cannonade heard 011 the 26' th, and the position of the armies on the frontiers of Piedmont and Lombardv, would seem to explain." Letters from Villefranche, in Beaujolais, state that the Prince of Cisterna has passed through that j town with a suite of seven carriages. Letters from Naples, dated the 26th, state that perfect tranquillity then prevailed in that city. The public funds, w hich were JS low as 50, had risen to j 58. It is said that the King entered 011 the 27th. I Letter from Piedmont state, that the Austrian troops are concentrated on the Tecino, and that they are preparing to pass that river on the 10th and 15th of April. According to the latest ac- counts from Chamberrv, only about 300 troops re- mained with the government of that town, the rest having joined the troops of the Junta. Some ar- rangements have been adopted to place the town ont ofthe risk of a cottp- de- main, or to repress any popular movement. FRONTIERS OF MOLDAVIA, Marcll 10. On the 7th the following Proclamation was post- l j ed 011 the walls of Jassy :— " Inhabitants of Moldavia— We make known to you that ibis day all Greece has lighted up the torch of liberty and broken the yoke of tyranny.

AV, March 31— The following details have just been received from the head- tfuarters of Ins Lx- cellencv Baron I'rimont, dated the 21th instant:— " After that, iu consequence of the capitulation of Capua, hostilities had ceased. In the morning ofthe 21st, possession was taken of Capua, ami the division of the vanguard of Lieutenant- Genera! Count Walmoden marched forward to Casorta and Aversa. The two divisions of Hesse Hombourg and Stutterheffif eticnmjK- d near Capua. On the 22d the Commander in Chief let the troops rcpo9e. The division ofLederer arrived on that day at Capua. On the 23d, the- vanguard extended to Melito and Afragola, the main botlv ofthe array to Aversa. " In this space of time the delivery ofthe forts in Naples was entirely regulated, as also the entrance into the city, and the delivery of the fortresses of Gaeta and Pescara. On the 21th, in the morning, his Excellcucy the Commander- in- Chief, with the divisions of Walmoden, Hesse llombourg, and ' Stntterheim, and with the brigade of cavalry of j Taxis, was on the Catnpo di Marte Ijefore Naples, j at eight o'clock.

The finest weather favoured this en- trance ; and the troops to the no small surprise of many incredulous persons, sufficiently refuted, by their fine appearance, the unfavourable opinion which the revolutionists had studied to spread among I the people. : " The whole population welcomed the troops with i the most boisterous acclamations, and with cries of imperial parliament, HOUSE OF LORDS. Monday, April 9- POSTPONEMENT of tie CATIJOI. IC BII. L. The Earl of DONOUGIIMOHE saitl, that though no man could he inoreanxious than he was for the passing of that Hill of grace and justice, and mercy, which had come up from the other House of Parliament, awl which related to that Llass of their fellow subjects who professed the Roman Catholic Religion, yet as it was desirable that on a subject of such importance they should have as full an attendance as possible, he wished to postpone the second reading for a few days. Knowing that the feeling of the Ilo'j- e went along with him in the opinion of ihe great im- portance of the measure, and aware that many Noble Lords were now on the road who were desirous to take part in this discussion, he should move that the order which stood for two- morrow be discharged, antl that the House be summoned for Monday next, which he under- stood would he the day most convenient to all parties. Lord ROI. LE thought it rather hard upon these Noble Lords who had regularly attended their Parliamentary duties, that any delay should take place on account of those who had absented themselves. The Earl of DONOUGHMORE suggested, that whatever advantage the advocates of the Bill might he ex- pected to derive from the proposed delay, it would at least aflbrd the Noble Eord an opportunity of adding to the number of his Petitions on the oilier side. Lord ROLL 11 said, he was much obliged to the No- ble Lord for his hint, and expressed his conviction, that the more the subject was- considered and discussed, the more would the Table be covered with Petitions. The LORD CHANCELLOR wished to ask the No- ble Lord whether be was determined to bring on the mo- tion on Monday next ? The Ear! of DONOUGIIMORE said he would un- doubtedly move the second reading on Monday, and he hoped the Noble and Learned Lord would be prepared by that time [ a laugh'.

YPSILANTL" The moment this proclamation was posted up, detachments of troops appeared, who drove away or massacred the troops that inhabited the town. The people assembled to flv to their succour ; but the Prince appeared and quieted tliem, and assured them that every thing was done by his orders. The Turks without the town were also massacred, and their property confiscated. The inhabitants every moment expect the Russians, who are already concentrated at Pruth, to the amount of six regi- ments of infantry and four of Cossacks. In Walachia, the Servian Theodore has assem- bled 6 or 7000 men, attacked tlie Turks, and now threatens Bucharest. It is said that the cause of these events is the decapitation of the Greek Pa- triarch at Constantinople. Well informed men assert that the conspiracy extends through till the Greek provinces, and that the object in view is nothing less than the establishment of a new Greek empire. P. S. The revolution extends over the whole of Moldavia, Walachia, aud Bulgaria. Many Turks liav'e sought refuge in the mountains. Some have been pursued and taken, and sabred by the Arnauts. Recruiting for the new Greek army is carried on every where. Several thousands of men are assemb- led at Jassy ; the greater part are Russians. As soon as the intelligence of this insurrection reached Laybach, the Emperor Alexander express- ed, in strong terms, his disapprobation of the en- terprise, and ordered Ypsilanti, its leader, to be ex- cluded from the service of Russia. He, at the same time, issued orders to Count Wittgenstein, Commander in Chief of the Russian troops in the Pruth and Bessarabia to observe the strictest neu- trality, and to take no part, either directly or in- directly, in these troubles. TRIESTE, March 27.— Prince Ypsilanti has advanced on the Morea and Epirtis. The Turks are every where massacred. Ali Pacha and Ypsilanti arc ready to support each other. Yesterday news arrived of an insurrection in Con- stantinople, m consequence of the insurrection in Wallachia being known. 1 he Greek Patriarch, it is said, was massacred. The letters received this day do not, however, confirm the news. We are quite at ease here respecting the affairs of Piedmont. The attempt at revolution there has proved abortive. Several Carbonari have been ar- rested at Brescia, and among others the comic actor Canova. Other comedians have fled to Switzer- land. NAPLES, March 24-.— The following arc the terms in which General Carascosa gives an account ofthe defection of his corps :—" General Mangier-! informed me that his brigade was in a state of com- plete disunion ; that the soldiers fired on their officers, and more particularly on himself. At the same time I received a report from General Cosia, who had experienced a similar occurrence at Scssa. While I was lamenting these events, I heard at a short dis- tance a brisk fire of fftusketry, and learned that it proceeded from five battalions of the first division, who were firing on their officers. Immediately after, my head- quarters, and those of General Ambrosio, were attacked by these ruffians. General Ambrosio was saved by a company of faithful sappers. I was protected by twenty gendarmes" ; they fired on the soldiers, who, as cowardly as perfidious, immediately dispersed through the country. I beg that patrols of cavalry may be established on the road from Naples to Aversa. 1 shall make the same arrange- to wear in their caps branches of olive, instead of other leaves which the Austrian soldiers are used to wear, which the people received with much pleasure. ] Neapolitan and Austrian officers have been sent to ! tlic Governors of Gneta and Pescara, with written ! orders from the Prince Regent to deliver up those j fortresses." | A Te Dcum will be sung tbe 2d of April next, to return thanks to'the Most High for the success of the armies of his Majesty tlm Emperor of Austria, i and the re- establishment of legitimate authority in the kingdom of Naples. j TURIN, March 31 At Genoa all is quiet. j On the 21- th, the galley slaves having procured arms, j attempted to revolt ; but the zeal of the guard and i the presence of the troops prevented a renewal ofthe j catastrophe of Palermo.

VIENNA, March 21- The military armaments have been increased w ithin these few days in an ex- traordinary manner. Above forty thousand fresh troops have already received orders to proceed to Italy, and all the corps ofthe Austrian army are to be put in motion as speedily as possible. Our Sove- reign is resoved to finish the war without delay.— 111 less than three Weeks we shall have about 150,000 men m Italy, reinforced by Russian troops.

The Karl of DONOUGIIMORE replied thatheliad no wish to interfere with the important duties of the Noble Lord, and therefore, he would distinctly assure him, that on Monday he would undoubtedly propose the second reading of the Hill. The motion was then agreed to. and the House ordered to be summoned for Monday next accordingly. GUAM POUND. Tile Earl of LAUDERDALE presented a petition from the Ilorough of Grampound, praying to be heard by Counsel against the disfranchisement llill. The Noble Lord proposed that some delay should be granted for this purpose. The motion was resisted by Lord CAERNAVllON, who charged the petitioners with an endeavour to get rid ofthe Bill by a side- wind. The delay was aUo opposed by Lord Holland and Earl Grey, and supported by the Earl of Lauderdale. It was finally postponed till Wednesday. 1 uesday, Apnl 10. The Earl of EGREMONT presented petitions from the owners and occupiers of land in the neighbourhood of Lewes, from Ilelsham, Cuckfield, Brighton, Y/ incbel- sea, and from four parishes iu the eastern part of the county of Sussex, complaining of ihe present distressed state of agriculture, and praying for relief. Petitions were presented from a number of places against any further concessions to the Roman Catholics.

The period for the opening of Congress was not fixed at the date of these letters from Angostura, as it would depend on the arrival of the deputies, many of whom have a very long and difficult journey to j undertake, before they could reach Cucuta, the place where Congress was to hold its sitting. One ofthe first objects of deliberation was expected to be the consolidation of the union of Venezuila and Gre- nada. Wednesday, April 11. FOREIGN TRADE. The Marquis of l. ANSDOWNE presented a report f'om the Committee on foreign trade. It related parti- cularly, he observed, to the article trade, which was di- vided into three different branches. The report pointed out various modes by which the trade to the East might he facilitated and improved. The Committee, in its la- bours. had been alive to the interests of all parties, and particularly to those of the East India Company, and the Committee felt confident that that Company would sanc- tion the adoption of the plans recommended, where they did not interfere with their commercial intercourse.— Some papers yet remained to be added to the appendix, which would be laid before the House in a few days. It was ordered, on the motion of his Lordship, that the report should be printed. GRAM FOUND. The Earl of CARNARVON, in moving the second reading of the Grampound disfranchisement bill, ex- plained the difference between the present measure and thatbrought forw ard last year. He denied that the mea- sure was any thing like a bill of pains and penalties; it was merelv remedial. Lord ASH BURTON objected to the bill altogether, as well as the Lord Chancellor. He was anxious that the whole facts should be laid before the House. The Earl ofCA UNAltVON replied, and the Earl of HA RROWBY s- ated his objections. Lord E'RSKINE spoke in favour of the bill at some length, and the Earl of CARNARVON further ex- plained its object. Friday, April 13. The Earl of SH A I- TSli C R Y presented a petition from the Corporation of Greenock against any alteration " ul the tUnber duties.

Cargoes of wool, after having arrived at. the English ports, had been sent to the United States and elsewhere, being unable to meet our duties. Th. it l; ix drove away the best wool. It had in- creased the duty 25 per cent: and the operation of the sys- tem was to make the Americans manufacturers, whether they would or not. The amount gained by the duty could not be a matter of consequence ; it was as nothing, com- pared with what was lost by the injury done to the trade. Mr. BARING remarked, that if something were not done, we should run great risk of losin, together.— ( Hear, hear') The petition was then received. CASH PAYMENTS. In the Committee on the Bank Cash Payments Bill, Mr, g the wool trade al- \ Dr. LUSTIINGTON presented a pe\: ifon from Mr. Merry, praying that means might be adopteos to restore to him his two children, who had been forced frV> m him at Lisbon, under pretext of educating them in tin • Ruinam Catholic faith as well as considerable property, SLC. Mr. T. ROBINSON said the Government kr^ ew no- thing ofthe case, but added, that inquiry would be injath , Sir » ^. MACKINTOSH then brought in his three to amt'ii^^^ Jfeminal laws. They were severally read first uitJMPfer second reading fixed for May 4th. ARMY ESTIMATES. . The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER mov- ed, that the order ofthe day be read for the House to resolve itself into a Committee of supply on the army estimates. Lord PALMERS TON then moved, that i. sum not exceeding £ 6,844 be granted to his Majesty to defray the expences ofthe Adjutant- General's establishment at head- quarters, office. clerks, assistants, & c. Mr. H UME, after stating that 5561 1. of this sum was to be appropriated to defraying the salaries of clerks, ami the other expences ofthe office of Adjutant- General, nsked for some explanption of She duties performed by those clerks. lie moved an amendment that the sum of 5,8411 be substituted for fhe above sum. Lord PA LMERSTON sard that the duties of theof- fice consisted in receiving returns from every regiment twice a- month— in receiving reports of inspections twice a- year— in instituting inquiries founded upon those reports,, with all the voluminous correspondence incident to those duties, in short every thing connccted with the mlistiiigr recruiting, and discharging of soldiers— and leave of ab- sence, & c. belonging to the department. He was s » m-- fied that there was no public office in which the clerks had so much business to transact, or in which tiny per- formed it with more accuracy and clearness than iu that ofthe Adjutant- General. Colonel DAVIS said it was not the object of his Hon. Friend to propose a return to the same extent of estab- lishment as the country had in 1792. Now, he would lake the year 1807, a year of war, and it would be found that the salaries of this office alone, in that year, amount- ed to only 18141. and they were now no less than 2G00L Mr. HUME wished to state also, that the total amount of expenditure for this office in 1808 was 59S7i. Lord PA LMERSTON said, though it had been stat- ed that the expence of this department in 1808 was 59871* he begged to say that it was 77071. The gallery was then cleared, and the Committee di- vided on the amendment of Mr. Hume— Ayes 54 Noes 85 Majority against Mr. Hume's amendment— 29 The original motion was then carried. Lord PALME RSTON moved, that a sum not ex- ceeding CI821. 7s. IOd. be granted to his Majesty, to defray the charges of allowance to the Quarter- Masier- General, the expences of his office, clerks, assistants, & c. Mr. HUME moved as an amendment, that 46* 221. be substituted for 61621. A short discussion ensued, and on a division there ap- peared— For the amendment, 60— Against it, 104— Ma- jority against the amendment. 44. A vote waS, then moved of 9221. for the. salary of the deputy Quarter- Master- General. Air. II UME said, he had strong objects to this office as he considered it totally unnecessary whilst there were so many clerks in the Quarter- Master- General's office, who must be supposed capable of doing all the business of it. Lord PA LMERSTON, 011 the other hand, argued that the duties of ( his officer were of a distinct and'very extensive nature, as it was his business to attend to the xnai cbing of troops. Mr. 1JENNET thought the offise of Deputy Quarter Master- General so unnecessary, that he would move, as an amendment, that the salary attached to it should be reduced to 3001. a- year. The LORD ADVOCATE stated, that it was not long since six regiments had occasion to tnarth upon GLs- govv.-—( A laugh.) A division then took place, when there appeared—• For the amendment, 58— Against it, 96 Majority, 58. The next vo'e was one for 51801. for defraying . ho cx- pences of the Judge Advocate- GeneraTs department. Mr. CHETWYND said, that of all the instances pf 1 waste of public money, this was the most glaring, and | wanton. The Judge Advocate- General had a i. nger salary than- the Chief Justice of England. lie had be- sides a Deputy and Assistant- Deputy, one with a salary of 4001. and the other of 6001. a- year. He had ids., " a house estimated at 5001. a- year. With such liberally as thi% to officers whose services were., not wanted, he- thought the Ministers ofthe Crown aud the 12 Judges were very inadequately paid. lie moved, as an amend- ment. that the expences of this department should be re- duced to 3180..—( Hear.) Mr. BECKETT ( the Judge Advocate- Gencral) com- plained that the Hon. Gentleman had made a great charge against him, without possessing sufficient information either as to the amount of his salary, or the salary ofthe- Judges of the land, to one of whom he compared his ( Mr. B.' s) office. The salary of the Judge Advocate- Genera I was, in fact, only 20001. a- year. With regard to the [ house which was given him by Government, this officer had always had an apartment iu the Horse Guards until 1805, when it being found convenient to convert these apartments to other purposes, the Government purchased a house for the Judge Advocate. The Court of the Judge Advocate was a Court of Record, where all the judgments in the army were preserved. In 1805,. Lord Grenville in- vestigated this office with great care, and then discovered that it was one of great trust and delicacy. It was not true that there were either coals or candles applied to his ( Mr. Beckett's) individual use; they were solely for the use of the office, ' llie office was not a sinecure; for sinco 1792, the business of it had greatly increased.— The progress was in this way : in 1792 there were but 29 Courts Martial; in 1807, 183; whilst in 1819, there were 259; and in 1820, no less than 2GO.-~ ( Hear, hear.) Sir RONALD FERGUSON thought the office a wanton expence. After some further conversation, the Committee di- vided 011 Mr. ChetwvruPs amendment. The numbers were, 44 for the amendment, and 92' against it. Dr. LUSH1NGTON then proposed, as an amend- ment, that the sum of 12001. be deducted from the sun* proposed. On this a division took place, when the numbers were- — ayes 51— noes 85. A third division took place on the original resolution the number in favour of which was 82, and 55 against • itants of Thursday, April J 2. A petition was presented from certajn inhabit. Coventry Against the Catholic claims. Mr. LAMBTON presented a petition from certain freeholders of Lime Regis, stating, that, from the reigit of Edward I* t » that of George l. the Representatives were elected by the whole body of resident freeholders ; since that time the right of election had been con fined to the Corpoiatioft'only, and the whole influence had fallen into tfej hands of : v certain Peer, whose relations hud for many 1 I f elec- tion ' fto- number of resident freeholders amounted to / ip- IVardsoflOO, no" they were reduced to about 30, r Host of them non- resident, and placemen or pensioners. The petition was read, and on the cjue3tion for its lying on the table, Air. HOBIIOUSE moved ( til amendment; tha t, as the interference of a Peer in elections was a breach of privi- lege, this petition should be referred to a Committee of privilege. Sir J. GRAHAM opposed the amendment. Lord LOWTI1ER thought this was ayli election peti- tion. and therefore out of time. Mr. LAAIBTON said it was not anel- ectionn petition, but complained that the petitioners had ilost their rights. On reflection, however, he considered bis Honourable Friend's suggestion as that most proper to be adopted, and was willing to withdraw his motion / to make way for it ; or his Honourable friend might i/ nake it a subsequent motion. After some conversation as to the form to be adopted, between the Speaker, Mr. Hohiiiouse, Mr. Lambton, and other Members, the gallery i/ vas cleared for a division. For the amendment 33-/— For the motion 82— Majority for the petition Ling on'the table 49. Mr. Serjeant ONSJTOW moved- forand obtained leave to bring in a Bill tivnepeal the present Usury Laws. Tlk- F. TIMBER DUTIES. Mr. ff. lu'. ACE, in reply to a question from Air. J. P. Grant,> sitid he wished to move the second reading of the Timber Duties Bill to- night, without debate, and to take t'ue discussion in the Committee on Monday. > Clr. J. P. GRANT agreed to this proposition, and yjjave notice that he would, in the Committee, move tiie . re- consideration of the duties. . SCOTCH MALT. The CH ANCELOIl of the EXCHEQUER moved, thatthe Petitions from Scotland, complaining of the Malt Duty, and of illicit distillation, be referred to a Select Committee. Mr. BENNET observed, this was the first payment} A iieaT made to Scotland for the vote on the Malt Tax Repeal Bill ( hear !). Sir G. CLERK said these Petitions stood oil very dif- ferent ground from the repeal of the Malt Tax in Eng- land. In 1819a duty of 8d. per bushel had been impos- ed in Scotland beyond what was imposed in England ; a difference which formerly existed to that extent having been done away. Sir R. FEKGUSSON said, though he knew it would lie an unpopular thing, he should oppose the motion, be- cause he considered it unjust ( much ofthe barley grown in England being worse than much of that grown in Scot- land), aud because he considered it a boon to the Scots agricultural Members, for voting with the Minister. In answer to a question of Mr. R. Gordon. The CHANCELLOR of theEXCHEQUERstated. that his mind was not made up as to the measure lit to be adopted. He only w ished to give the Scots Gentlemen an opportunity of stating their case. Mr. MONCK opposed the motion, asastep towards a measure which would be unjust. The Scots barley growers had no case at all for general exemption. Mr. MACKENZIE denied this was a boon to the Scotch Members, for he and other Scotch Members bad voted for the second reading of the Malt Tax Repeal Bill. He hoped the Gallant General ( Sir It. Fergusson) would withdraw bis opposition, as the motion for a Com- mittee was of much importance, especially to consider the state of illicit distillation. Mr. J. P. GRANT supported the motion, though he confessed it was brought forward under very suspicious appearances. The CHANCELLOR ofthe EXCHEQUER said, Ire hail given his promise to accede to a Committee so early as last Session. The House divided, when there appeared— Ayes, 53— Noes. 17— Majority. 36. Mr. M. A. TAYLOR moved to refer the petitions from the inferior districts of England, such as certain parts of Cumberland, Northumberland, the West Riding of Yorkshire. Wales, and the county of Cornwall, to the same Committee.— Negatived without a division, ORDNANCE. Mr. HUME rose for the purpose of moving for leave to bring in a bill to prevent Civil Officers of the Ordnance ' from voting at the election of Members of Parliament, as was the case in dther public offices. All the statutes oil this subject went to prevent the exertion of improper influence. The Act 22( 1 George III. had a most salu- tary effect, and had been attended from the House of Commons by 100 Members to the Upper House. The restrictions which extended to the Customs and Excise, the Masters of Packets and of Postmasters, he proposed to apply to the Ordnance. By the 5th of William and Mary, no Collector was to attempt to influence the vote of any individual, and that principle had been cairied through the whole of the Customs, and had been subse- quently extended to the Excise, the. Post Office, and to almost* all the other departments connected with the ma- nagement of the Revenue. He wished only to extend thc^ old principle to the only branch to which it at pre- sent was not extended. The 6th of Queen Anne, chap. 2, said, that no persons holding offices created after a certain time should be capable of a scat in that House; and extended it to many Agents, Commissioners of Transports, and persons holding pensions at pleasure. In 1R02, 156 electors voted at the election for Queen- borough, and the numbers were, 76and 75; when the election went against the Government. But at that time the number of persons in the Ordnance at that place was only 1 7. At the last election, Messrs. Hunt and Villiers, the Government candidates had only 66— But now there were 147 Freemen who had places to the amount of 14,0001.; and 32 others bad situations in the Customs and the Preventive Service. The Mayor, nam- ed Greystock. had a sinecure in the Ordnance, and was part of his time in France collecting oysters, and the other at Billinsgate selling them. From a person ofthe name of Grigg, a Jurat, the Ordnance hired all their ves- sels ; anrl his brother had been made a barge- master. A Captain Dickinson, who had been admitted to the Bench at Queer, borough, had 5001. a- ycar, and a house and coals. He ( Mr. II.) had much difficulty to collect in- formation on this subject, as he understood that a threat had been held out, that whoever afforded him informa- tion would be dismissed—( Hear, hear!)— He ( Mr. II) • was happy at the cheers of the Master of the Mint. Mr. W*. POLE rose to order. It was irregular to notice anv individual in that way. The SPEAKER said, that whatever interrupted the freedom of debate was irregular. Mr. HUME disclaimed any intention to hurt the feelings of the Right Hon. Gentleman, and proceeded to state a number of cases of persons who w-^ re freemen of Queenborough enjoying places under Government at the pleasure ofthe Master of the Ordnance, aid who there- fore could not exercise an unbiassed franchise. The Jlon. Gentleman's observations went to show, that 147 persons had among them 14,0001. and 32 houses,.. to- gether with servants ; 11 freemen of Queenborough had among them 26001. a- year ; and the sum total, with the houses and the Preventive Service, came to 25,0001. lie had a list of 16 persons who had been dismissed, and their places supplied by the inhabitants of Queenborough. Sooner than this system should go on, he would consent that the Master- General of the Ordnance should choose the two Members. He should move for leave to bring in a bill disqualifying certain Civil Officers of Ordnance from voting at the election of Members of Parliament. > 1 r. IIERNALL seconded the motion. At a late election for Rochester, no less than 25 persons belong- ing to the Quarantine Establishment had given their votes. He did not mean to say that Government should exert no influence, but he wished that influence not to be corrupt. Mr. WARD would oppose the bill in all its parts, as it tended to throw a stigma on a meritorious body of men. The Hon. Member, to be consistent, must tend the bill to every department of the navy. But be hoped the House would read him a belter lesson.- The hill went on a false assumption that all in the ser- vice voted for the Government candidate. But the contrary bad appeared in the tase of Great Yarmouth and Ipswich, which had been carried by the Dockmen against Government. He had been informed that there was. in bis own office, a radical reformer. lie ( Mr. W.) asked if the man was a good clerk, and being answered in the affirmative, he hail alloveed that individual to go thrice tir Maidstone to vote against the candidate supported by Government, if he ( Mr. II.) complained of the in- fluence of Government, what became ofthe influence on the other side of the House. Would he prevent tenants from voting agreeably to the wishes of their landlords ? The motion of the 17, m. deiitlemnn Was either a wild Utopian scheme, or made with a view to hurta particular body of men. Lord Si. Vincent, at the approach of an Election, used. to telegraph the different sliip'i that the men might come on shore, and . enjoy the elective franchise. In 1802. the Member for Coventry, and, Mr. Prinsep, had turned out the Government candidates at Qnecri- bnrough. Sir Samuel Iiomilly had twice represented that Borough, and the purity of his character was uni- versally known; Though the Government of 1812 had failed at Queenborough, yet that of 1806 succeeded,- no doubt, by honourable means. The Hon. Member had not m- ide out his case ; and the House would not be able to stoji if it went on to deprive Englishmen of the invalu- able privilege of exercising the elective franchise. On a division, there appeared— For the motion, 60— Against it, 118 — Majority, 58. Friday, April 13. BANK CASH PAYMENTS BILL. Mr. ELI. ICE wished to call the attention ofthe Right Hon. Gentleman to an omission which it appeared to him there was irr the Bill. In this Bill there was no clause to oblige the Bank to change large notes for small, or for the current coin of the realm. The want of this clause might be productive of great inconvenience to country bankers pr traders; and to obviate the evil, he had prepar- ed a clause to be added to the Bill, by way of rider, if the Right Hon. Gentleman concurred.— After a discussion of some length, the Bill was read a third time, the Hon. Gentleman brought up his clause, which was read a first and second time, and added, by way of rider to the liill, which was then passed in its amended state. ARMY ESTIMATES. On the first resolution being put, that 174 should he granted for the Commander- in- Chief and his staff, Mr. HUME said he should move that a deduction be made to the amount of ,£ 2000. lie should not meddle with the Chief Secretary, and the Private Secretary ofthe Commander- in- Chief ; but lie thought the Assistant Military Secretary might well be dispensed with. He ould not see what use there could be for a Chaplain for the Commander- in- Chief. He should move that a reduc- tion be matle of .£ 2000, and would leave it to the Com- mander- in- Chief to make the reduction in what proportion he thought best. Altera good deal of discussion on the part of different Members, the Amendment was negatived, on a division, by a majority of 63. Lord PALMERSTON moved that a sum not exceed- ing £ 650 should be granted to bis Majesty, for defraying the expenses of Deputy Judge Advocate of Scotland. The grant was opposed, oil the ground that the office was unnecessary, considering the large salary paid to, and the small services performed by, the Advocate- General. It was also objected to, on the ground of its being nothing else than a Scots job, which had originally been devised as a job, and was in future to be voted as a job. The grant was defended upon the plea of necessity and ex- pediency. The House divided, when there appeared — For the motion, III — Against. it, 72— Majority, 39. Several other amendments were proposed and negatived, and the Committee was ordered to sit again on Monday. REVENUE LAWS. Mr. LUSIIINGTON having moved thatthe House resolve itself into a Committee on the Acts for preventing Smuggling ill Ireland, with a view to bring in a Bill on that subject, a short discussion arose oil the nature of the smuggling preventive system, which was strongly censur- ed by Mr. Bernall, Mr. Gordon, and - Mr. Ilobhousc.— Leave was given to bring in the bill.

Letters were received in . town on Wednesday from Ireland, announcing the death of the Marquis of Lon- donderry. the father of Viscnnnt Castlereagh. His Lord- ship was in the 82d year of his age. having been born on the 27th September, 1736. He was the first of his family advanced to the Peerage, and when in tile rank of a private Gentleman, as Itqbert Stewart, Esq. married on the 1st of June, 1 766, Sarah Frances Seymour, second daughter of the first Marquis of Hertford, by whom, who died in 1770, he had Robert, Viscount Castlereagh. now Mar- quis of Londonderry, born the 18th of June. 1769. On the 7tll of June, 1775, he married, secondly, Frances, eldest daughter ofthe first Earl Camden, by whom he- had issue, Charles William, Lord Stewart, present Am- bassador to the Court of Vienna ; Frances Anne, mar- ried to Lord Charles I-' itzroy ; Caroline, married to Col. Thomas Wood ; Georgina. married to Lord Garvagh ; Selina Sarah Juliana, married to David Kerr, nf'Portavo, Esq. ; Matilda Charlotte, married to E. M. Ward, Esq. Emily Jane, married to J. James. Esq. and several other sons and daughter's, now deceased, one of whom. Catherine Octavia, married the present Lord Ellenborouch. The late Marquis was created a Baron in 1789, Vis- count in 1795, Earl in 1796, and Marquis in 1816.' lie was Governor and Custos Rotulorum of the Counties. of Down and Londonderry, a Privy Counsellor, a Trustee of the Irish Linen Board, and a Representative Peer of Ireland in the Imperial Parliament. By his death his titles and estates devolve upon Viscount Castlereagh, now Marquis of Londonderry, whose seat as a Representative of tile county of Down in the House of Commons becomes vacam. The difficulty of finding a person competent to fill his place in the House of Commons may probably induce his Lordship's return to Parliament as Represen- tative of ail English Borough.

THE NEW CROWN.— This splendid attribute of Royalty, which has just been completed by Messrs. Run- dell and Bridge, was on Tuesday deposited in the Jewel- house, Tower. It is much larger, loftier, and more mag- nificent than the former Crown ; appropriate to the digni- ty of the British Empire. The new Crown is about 15 inches in elevation ; the arches, instead of sinking in their centre, are raised almost to a point, being themselves em- bossed and edged with brilliants, and supporting an orb of brilliants also, more than six inches in circumference.— This is surmounted by a Maltese diamond cross of exqui- site workmanship. on whose top and sides are suspended three remarkable large pearls. In the front of the Crown is a unique sapphire of the purest and deepest azure, two inchcs long and an inch broad, At the hack is the unci- OLD BAILEY SESSIONS. TRIAL OF MESSRS. CHRISTIE AND TRAIL. CHARGE OF MURDER. It having been generally understood that this was the day appointed f or the trial of these gentlemen, the Court was crowded to excess at an early hour. There was scarcely a seat to be had at 8 o'clock. A few minutes after ten o'clock, the Chief Justice and Air. Justice Park took their seats on the Bench, when Jonathan Henry Christie, and James Trail, who had previously stood in the bodv of the Court, were put to the Bar. The youthful and respectable appearance of these two gentlemen excited in every one present the strongest sympathies. The Jury were then sworn, and the clerk of the ar- raigns then read the indictment, which charged the pri- soners at the bar with the wilful murder of IVIr. John Scott. Mr. Walford then rose to state the case to the Jury.— He said it was difficult for him to find language to con- vey an idea of the painful feelings with which he rose on the present occasion. Indeed the man who, recollecting the circle in society in which the two respectable young men at the bar had moved, and bearing in mind the awful consequences that may ensue, could behold their situation without emotion, must be possessed of much, firmer nerves than the individual who had then the honour of addressing them. lie should, however, endeavour to discharge to the best of his ability the painful duty that had devolved on him, and, in the first instance, he must entreat the Jury to dismiss from their minds altogether any rumours or reports that tn< iy have previously come to their ears, respecting this melancholy transaction. They should direct their attention, and be guided in their de- cisions by the evidence alone that should be laid before them. It was his duty to lay that evidence before them. But before he did so, he must premise, that the pirties concerned in this prosecution had instructed him their advocate, to disclaim on their part all vindictive motives; they were merely actuated by a desire ro lay the case be- fore a Jury, that such conclusions might be come to as the justice of the case demands. Of the nature or extent of the provocation that led to this transaction, he had nothing to communicate. The late Mr. Scott was a Gentleman highly distinguished in the literary world, and, at the time of his decease, was the principal con- ductor of a respectable periodical work, The L< mdon J\ fa- gazine. Mr. Christie, one of the prisoners, is a Gentle- man in the law, in the conveyancing department. Mr. Trail is also a Gentleman in the law, a member of tiie profession ofthe Bar. At the period at which this un- fortunate transaction took place, Mr. Pettigrew ( whom he should call), a surgeon residing at Spring- gardens, was summoned to attend the late Mr. Scott, by Mr. Patt- more. who is not now present, to Chalk Farm, in a professional capacity. lie obeyed the summons, and took a gentleman of the name of Morris with him in a coach to Chalk Farm, On coming near the spot, he heard a shot, which he supposed was the report of a pistol ; he saw some gentlemen measuring the ground.— Soon afterwards heard another shot, and saw a person fall, upon which he got over the hedge, and saw Mr. Scott on the ground. lie states, that Mr. Christie ap- peared in extreme agitation, and coming over to Mr. Scott, said he would most willingly exchange places.— He also heard him say, he should not have been allowed to fire a second time, having discharged his first pistol down the field. This was all Mr. Pettigrew could state, lie afterwards returned to town, to make some prepara- tions for Mr. Scott. Mr. Scott was then conveyed to a tavern at Chalk Farm, where he was atiendedby an emi- nent physician, Dr. Darley, and to him he described what had passed on the ground. But, for reasons he would state, he should abstain from mentioning that conversation. According to law, the statements of a man dying of a mortal wound was evidence against a prisoner. But at the time this conversation occurred, there was reason to suppose that Mr. Scott did not apprehend his death was approaching. However, Doctor Darley should be called, and if what he states can he considered legal evidence, it should then, and then only, be submitted to their consideration. These were the facts of the case as should be detailed in evidence, and now he should say a few words respecting the law as it affects this transaction. If two. persons have a quarrel and meet together at a sufficient distance of time after the provocation has oc- curred, to leave a reasonable presumption that their pas- sions had cooled, then the law, considering it a cool de- liberate act, if either of the party come by his death, looks upon not only the person who uses the instrument whereby the life is taken awav, but all those that are present, liable to the charge of wilful murder. But if the meet- ing take place immediately after the quarrel, so that it cannot be supposed their passions had time to cool, then in the event of the unfortunate consequence he had de- scribed taking place, the law contemplates it in the more lenient light of man- slaughter. And here he begged to impress upon the minds of the Jury the hour at which the meeting took place. It was by moonlight, a most extraordinary hour, and on the night of the day on which the provocation took place. This was a material point, and although Counsel for the prosecution, he could not conceal it, because it afforded a strong presumption, that their passions had not cooled at the time, and therefore theoffence came under the denomination of man- slaughter. There remained but one consideration more, and that was, whether any doubts were entertained in the minds of the Jury as to the prisoners at the bar being the persons en- gaged in the transaction ; if so, they were, of course, bound to acquit them. Of this he had no expectation.— It would rest with the Jury to take all the facts of the case into their most serious consideration, and to return that verdict which their own consciences, after mature deliberation, dictated. Mr. Pettigrew was then called, and swore to the facts pretty nearly as stated by the Learned Counsel, He re- sided at Spring Gardens, was requested by Mr. frittmore to attend Mr. Scott in a professional capacity to Ch- ilk Farm. He accordingly did so, accompanied bj his pupil, Mr. Morris.. 041 coming near the ground lie heard a shot fir. ed, saw some gentlemen apparently treasuring the ground, heard a secohdshot, and saw a person fall. . He immediately got over the. hedge,, and on . coming tortile spot,, he found Mr. Scott on his knees, he pointed with his finger to the. place where he was wounded. He heard Mr. Christie say,- he wished he had been in the^ situation of Mr. Scott, rather than Mr. Scott himself. Mr. Scott then fainted. On his recovery he Said, " Whatever the consequence of. this may be, I beg you all to bear in re- membrance that every thing has been fair and honour- able." During the time lie , was examining; the wound, an altercation took place between Mr. Pat.( mo re- and another gentleman, with whose person he is not acquaint- ed. He did not hear all that had passed, but he heard Mr. Pattmore exclaim, " Why was not this communi- cated to me?"— lie exclaimed, " Good. God, why -. was f permitted to fire a. seeond time; I fired down the field, I could do. no more."' '•• ' Witness conceived it best that Mr. Scott should be brought to London, and he left to give • directions fbr that purpose. lie was not brought to London. His death was occasioned by- the wound he received. Cross- examined by Mr. Gurney— Mr. Christie said he was obliged to tire the second time in his own defence.— lie behaved in the most humane manner, and appeared greatly agitated. „ • ^ , • By the Judge— The night was not. sufficiently clear to distinguish the persons of either of fhe two Gentlemen whom he saw iu the field. ... Wm Belvill Morris examined by. Mr. Halford— On his way to Chalk Farm on the evening mentioned in the in- dictment, he was in a Chaise with Mr. Pettigrew, and heard the report of a pistol shot. ... They made for the. spot, and he heard a noise like ramming pistols, and two heads appeared above the hedge ; on, his approach hesa. vv two gentlemen presenting pistols at each other, they fired,, and the one nearest me on the, right fell. lie went and assisted to raise him from the ground. A conversa- tion ensued between two of the gentlemen, one, he be- lieved, was Mr. Pattmore, the other he does not know. By Mr. Pettigrew's desire he went for the post- chaise, in which they came down. On hisretupi for the chaise, he was stopt at the Farm House, and on returning towards the field, found they, v\ e, re bringing the deceased on a shutter towards Chalk Farm. Four or five gentlemen were round him. The prisoner, Christie, was one of those in the room, but he can't say if he was in the field. Several other witnesses deponed to the same effect. Mr. Walford then closed the case for the prosecution. Mr. Gurney left his seat at the table, and conversed for several minutes w ith the prisoners. After the Learn- ed Counsel had left them. The Chief Justice addressed them severally, and said, the time had now arrived when they might, if they thought proper, address the Court in their defence. Mr. Christie, with much evident emotion, replied to this communication, that he should call witnesses to shew the Court that his character was free from any im- putation of inhumanity and cruelty. IVIr. Trail replied, that he should make a similar re- ference to witnesses as to his character. A number of witnesses then gave the prisoners a very j high character for humanity and mildness of disposition. The Chief Justice Abbott ( after consulting with Mr. Justice Park) charged the Jury. The Jury consulted about half an hour, and returned a verdict of Not Guilty. long, and several ofbotb kinds left Unsold. Beef rcril 6s. to f! d. per stone, sinking! offals.

Wednesday, an overture was moved in . the Synod by the Rev. Mr. Lapslie, minister of Canipsie, to petition the House of Lords against the Roman Catholic Claims;, which, after an animated and protracted discussion, was carried by a majority of 14 to 12. The Rev. Mover 111 an energetic speech, cal eil upon; every one to exert himself to prevent such impolitic and dangerous concessions as those required from passing into a Law, and deprecated the erroneous opinions which were abroad in the world under the cant term of liberality He stated, that lie could only view in Roman Catholics, the followers of the P. pc and . the Council of Trent, the principles emanating . from which icinained and must ne- cessarily remain unchanged— principles which induced them to seek power, and. which power would never rest satisfied till, they had obtained the control of soul and body in this country, and had undermined our Protestant establishment, .. The consequences of granting all that they wanted would, lie said, one day prove fatal to the best interests tvf this country. The liev. Dr. Chalmers, in a speech characterised by all his wonted eloquence. and energy, opposed the mqiiou. He opposed it, he said, because he hated and detested Popery, its superstitions, and delusions, but w hich could only be convinced, reclaimed, and vanquished by theji- dit of gospel truth being diffused amongst its votaries, and which could not he accomplished otherwise than by mix- ing with them 011 311 equal footing, and in the most friendly manner. He deprecated and condemned tl. e erroneous and irritating policy which had beep so long pursued by the Government of Great Britain in all that regarded Ireland, and which tended to prolong those em- bittered feelings so injurious to her repose, her instruc- tion, and our safety. To destroy Popery, and the evils and ignorance resulting therefrom, it was only necessary, he contended, to meet it with the light of truth, and not with the arm of the civil power ; and for that purpose, the Legislature ought now to sweep away, blot out, and abo- lish every invidious mark of distinction— every provoca- tion, every stigma at present known or complained of— admit them into Parliament— into every office— and place them completely on a par with Protestants iu every rela- tion of civil society. They ought no longer to remain de- pressed in the scale of society, for, while they were so, we should still find a population determined on resistance, ready to be irritated, and liable to be misled and become discontent. Dr. M'Farlane of Drymen, while be concurred that the Synod and the Country were much indebted to the zeal of Mr. Lapslie, moved, that confiding in the wisdom' and justice of the Sovereign and the Legislature, it was judged inexpedient to proceed any farther 011 the subject. This motion was supported by several speakers in very e speeches, and . Mr. Lapslie's motion opposed chiefly able 5 MARKETS, CORN EXCHANGE, April 13.

Air. Lapslre's motion, however, was carried by tire majority mentioned; when the Synod adjourned. CIRCU. lT INTELLIGENCE.

SIR, t tiftncrs? r « nd oile ofthe offenders, cor. vh ted at the pre- sent assiies, is Hot yet of age, nor by the law supposed to possess judgment sufficient to manage his own affairs. It. is true, that there is little hope of reclaiming to the paths of virtue one whose habits and disposition appear to be so depraved, but I deprecate the punishment of Death, when the offenders have not yet reached years of mature judg- ment. Banishment for life may be verv necessary for the safety of society, but to take awsjv tlie life of one w ho, in the eye of the law is an infant, for any xcrime, appears to lne very revolting. We had here an example, in the case of J'unies Ritchie, of a young man of excellent good na- tural disposition, but educated hy the most depraved parents, who juSeK- d d'Jath for a dime which he was at seventeen, ind^^ l fo Cottlmit, at the instigation of a villain. This youth was perfectly susceptible of virtuous instruction. Alas ! he had it not ; and although, at the very same assizes, a fellow of the name of Grant, a noto- rious sheep stealer, made an example of himself by throw- ing himself over the Bridge of Dee. thus confessing his guilt, the boy was executed ; yet to the applications for jj mercy in the case of Ritchie, it vvas answered by Lord Sid mouth, that an example was necessary.

" HUM ANUS. Tu the EDITOR ofthe ABERDEEN CHRONICLE. Sin, TVIA V I solicit^ small corner of your Paper, for the purpose of stating a few suggi stu ns which a circumstance, in my opinion rather singular, excited in my mind. I was always of opinion, that any Building erected fov pub- lie - business at the public expence, was open to the public vithout discrimination : and I likewise understood it to be the law ofthe land, that Courts where cases were institut- ed, ' either for the good or for the example of a country, were not to be the receptacles of favourites only ; but on asking admittance, the o: her day. into your Court, I was not a little surprised on being told, " you canna win inn here without a ticket, an altho' you hae, lis only ltdies that win inn at this door." Ladies in a criminal Court ! 1 exclaimed I, ( doubting whether the Porter jested,) this is certainly novelty, to me at least. What in the name of wonder makes their attendance necessary ! But being answered, that it hyd now become customary in this place, and finding that it was in vain to remonstrate, I was ob- liged to withdraw. Now, Sir, I think it will be allowed, with a very few exceptions, that Ladies are entirely out of their own de- partment, when attending such assemblies ; and I am of opinion, it will be pretty difficult to advance a single satis- factory reason in favour of their attendance, as it is more than probable, that they will never become Bwrrislers at Law, and it is anxiously to be hoped, that they never will have to appear in such places as principals. It may be advanced by some, that " the Court was beaming with beauty and fashion.'* Vet, in my opinion, the time nor place js not suitable for such a display, nor can the pro- duce of a toy- shop be any acquisition to a place where life and death are in the question. To conclude, as I am rather unacquainted with Court practice ® in general, and of this place in particular, I hope some of your Corres- pondents, skilled in these things, will t ike the trouble to inform me, if it be a point of legality, or a matter of caprice, that any Gentleman who may feel inclined to attend is denied admittance. April 20, 1821. Yours, & c. AD \ NDY. We give our Correspondent's Letter a place, although lire can see no impropriety in the practice of Ladies attend- ing the proceedings of our Courts of Justice, unless in taste where parties necessary to the due administration of justice, and those only, are permitted to be present ; on the contrary, we have always thought, that accommodation for Ladies is one of the many and great improvements in our Court House, now one of the best in the kingdom. However, as our Correspondent is a Dandy, he has but to proceed a step farther, and disguising himself as a Miss, be may obtain admission even by ticket.

A vcrv extensive and formidable insurrection lias broken out in Greece, which is evidently favoured 1 iv tlie Russian Government, and threatens the in- dependence of the Turkish Empire. The procla- mation, addressed to the inhabitants bv tiie leader of the enterprise, reminds them of the glorious deeds of their ancestors, the herds of Marathon and Tiler niopvhe, rtnd the noble sifirit that actuated the States of Greece, while vet undebased bv slavery. The proclamation is well drawn up, in order to excite a warlike and patriotic spirit among the Greeks, and had we not so lately and so cruelly been disappointed iu the wretched attempt at defence made against their invaders by the Neapolitans, we should be inclined to augur well of tile rising spirit in Greece. In one essential circumstance the situations of the two countries differ, for the Russian Emperor is under- stood to favour the movement, and most formi- dable that movement is to the OTTOMAN I'OHTE. That Power, it is sai l, can muster in arms upwards of 400,000men; but should the Emperor ALEX- ANDER become a partv ill the field, the Turkish troops, we are persuaded, cannot stand before those of Russia, trained and disciplined as they have been bv their campaigns against France. For the Grecian States it is a great matter indeed, that they have preserved the language of their ancestors, so that the modern and ancient Greek is read w ith almost equal ease, and records that convey down the noble deeds of their ancestors are understood by all. In this respect, they possess a great advan- tage over the Italian States, whose language can scarcely be called older than the twelfth century, when Roman virtue had become a mere name. To be sure it is reviving an old grudge to incite the Greeks against the Turks, because they are the des- cendants of the ancient Persians ; but as tlie saying is, nil is fair in tear, and there will not be wanting pretences for animating the believers in the'Holy Prophet against the modern Greeks, although their ancestors were worshippers of the Sun. With regard to Piedmont, we for the most part receive our accounts through countries occupied by the Austrian armies, or through France, and both channels arc highly suspicious. If, with the in- formation that mankind have - acquired within these thirty years, thev still remain enamoured ofimbe- eilitv, and despotic rule of those who have no other claim to the confidence of the people than is derived from hereditary descent, time and experience must cure them of their prejudices. It augurs well for the Independence of the Piedmontese, that the Students of the University are amongst the most zealous supporters of the Revolution; for when the most enlightened in society have once seen the pro- priety and necessity of a change in the political state of a country, the ignorant may be brought to oppose them for a time, but that time is necessarily short. It was, therefore, natural enough for the Emperor of Austria to declare his dislike to learned men, and tell the Professors of Laybach, that lie expected them to teach no new doctrines, but adhere to such as were old ; for, bv new doctrines, this Imperial Dictator means doctrines favourable to Liliertv ; and bv old and approved doctrines, such as inculcate unconditional submission to despotic rule. It may, however, be inferred, from the disposition of the Students all over the Continent, that the Professors do their duty, inculcating sound doctrines, and form- ing the minds of their pupils according to the princi- ples of Virtue and Patriotism. tided. A Neapolitan Bulletin lias been published at Alexandria, 011 the 4th April, stating, " that the army having been betrayedbv thcGencra's CAHUA- MOSA, I'LANGlEIil, AMBROSH7, COLLETTA, CAMPAGNA, and MAIO, the troops dispersed as if on furlough, with their arms and baggage, On the 26th of March. An army, however, of 20,000 men, remained under the command of Generals FLORIO and MOHELLI, ami the whole troops, amotmtingto 120,000 men, were about to be united and march towards Capua." We have to add, that some suspicion attaches to this document, as it may possibly lie continued to keep up thfc spirit of the Revolutionists in Piedmont. Should it prove a genuine document, ofeat events must have al- O . O ready taken place in Naples. It was mentioned some time since, that the Austrians were sur- prised at the disappearance of the materiel ot the Neapolitan army, and were sending out troops daily to some distance from Naples, to know if any enemy was near. This information, coming from the Austrians themselves, we have no reason to doubt, anil further accounts will be anxiously ex- pected ; but, we are sorrv to leant, that assassina- tions ofthe Austrians are common during the night in the streets of Naples. For the honour of the cause in which they are engaged, we should wish the patriotic Neanolitans to confine themselves to honourable warfare, and in that all the liberal and the good must heartily wish them success. The proceedings in Parliament are in so far inte- resting, that many disclosures are made, chiefly bv the exertions of our excellent Representative, Air. HpMR, that most in spite of opposition lead to the correction of abuses. He is met bv assertions, which mav produce a faint cheer from the Treasury Benches, but his rejoinders, and the autlrorities with which he takes care to be armed, leave Ministers no other resource than the votes, which are uninfluenc- ed by argument. The Catholic question, accord- ing to some reports, will be carried in tiie House of ' j Peers, notwithstanding the opposition ofthe Bench 1 of Bishops ; but we know not upon what authority j these reports rest. We are. however, happv to find, that a most respectable Bodv of Catholics in Ireland have declared their satisfaction with the Bill, as in- troduced by Mr. PLUNKETT, although thev regret that so many securities should be thought necessary. It is however Understood, that Lord DONOUGH- in a very no. it and able speorh on Ixliulf of the prisoners, mid addoced witnesses, wire pave thcfti i haraeurs of be- ing very quiet and peaceable persons, and not quarrel- some.

The prisoner pled Not Chilly. It appeared from the evidence in this rase, ( hat. oil the night before the theft was committed, ( being in the beginning of the month of November last.) the pri- soner had gone to the house of Blelaek. occupied by George Gordon. Esq; to whom be had formerly been a gardener. That the housekeeper had left the key i » i the outer door, in expectation of her masiei's coming borne that night, and had gone to bod. This ap- pealed to have been a practice others, as not knowing when her master would return, she usually went to bed, and left the key in the door, so that he might enter ufu- n became: the kitchen, where she slept, being separated from the Mansion Mouse. Unfortunately, Mr.' Gordon not having come home that night, ami the prisoner find- ing the key in the door next morning, entered; and be- ing well acquainted with the house, went to Air. Goidon's parlour, where, having forced open a press, he stole from it a [ portable Writing Desk, containing £ 112 or thereby. He was a few days afterwards apprehended by George Fyfe, Messenger, at his own bouse in ITuntly, ami the Bank Notes were f nttid concealed in the house. On these being found, the prisoner confessed to the Mfc- sengcr ho., he he had come by them. The Public Prosecutor departed from tbe housebreaking, but in his address to the Jury stilted, that the crime was still cavital, and craved of them a verdict of the prisoner's guilt as to the theft, ae• cording to the libel. The prisoner's defence was very ably conducted by Robert Hunter. Esq; vho argued, that the Public Prosecutor had beenoblig, d togive u• thehouse- break- ng, as he could not establish it— am! that the Notes libelled on. a particular inventory of which was added, and formed part ofthe indictment, bad not been proved to be the property of Mr. Gordon : and that, as the l'ublic Pro- secutor had so minutely inventoried the, e Notes he was bound to produce evidence to prove them to be Mr. Gor- dun'sproperty. and that iu doinjf this he had completely failed.

NAPLES.— We would still hope, from the latest accounts received from Naples, that the spirit of the people remains good, although the capital has been treacherously delivered into the hands of the enemy. It is utterly false, that the Austrians were received on tbe' 24- th, when entering Naples, with acclamations qf joy ; on the contrary, the greatest surprize was manifested at their unexpected appear- ance, when the people were anxiously waiting for the news of a general engagement. The Constitu- tionalists are bv no means satisfied with the conduct ofthe Prince Regent, who appeared to receive the Austrians with much complacence, and refused to allow the publication ofthe speech of the Deputy POEtt 10, who besought the Parliament " to remain firm attheir posts, andsiiould the presenee. ofaforeign army render it necessary for them to separate, to pro- test before God and man for the national independ- ence, the independence ofthe Throne." A Spanish ship of the line, accompanied by a frigate, entered the Bav of Naples on the same day that the Aus- trians entered the city, and the presence of a friendly armed force would tend to animate the constitution- alists, whose hostility to the Austfiaus is most dc- CIRCUIT INTELLIGENCE. On Thursday last, the Circuit Court of . Tustic'iarv was opened here, bv the Right Hon. Lords fIEUMAND and SCCCOTH ; and afier the usual preliminary forms, They proceeded to the trial of William Graham, John Graham, and Arthur Connelly, from Stonehaven, ac- cused of housebreaking and theft. John Graham having failed to appear, sentence of fugitation was pronounced against him. William Graham and Arthur Connelly, the prisoners at the bar, pled Guilty— and the Jury found them guilty accordingly, in terms of their own confes- sion. Altera suitable admonition from Lord Ilermand, they were sentenced to two years imprisonment in the Bridewell of this city, and to be kept to hard labour. Thomas Donaldson, Coal Carrier in Aberdeen, ac- cused of housebreaki n<£ and theft. The Public Prosecu- tor having departed from the charge of housebreaking, the prisoner pled Guilty. The Jury found him guilty in terms of his own confession, and after an impressive ad- dress from Lord Succoth, he was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment in the Bridewell of thiscity, and to be kept to hard labour. David Ramsay, Fyeman in Aberdeen, accused of reset of stolen goods, knowing them to have been so. The prisoner having pled Not Guilty, the case Was remitted to the knowledge of an assize, under the usual interlocutor. There were no l> ss than four different specific charges libelled on. Tl e Public Prosecutor, however, departed from the second . ud third, and tried the panml on the first and fourth, namely, the reset of six gold mounted seals, stolen from the shop of Mrs. Dunn Castle Street, and some pairs of worsted stockings, from the shop of Mrs. Milne, also in Castle Street. The conduct of the' panneI seemed to have been very improper. It appeared from the evidence, that he had been in the practice of en- ticing young hoys to steal articles and bring them to his shop ; and that, lie usually paid them for these stolen goods, not by giving t\ em money, but by giving them pyes, porter, and confections. The gold seals and a pair of blue stockings were identified. Robert Hunter, Esq. addressed the Jury on behalf of thepannel. Lord Iler- mand then summed up the evidenoe in a very able man- ner, and in his address to the Jury, particularly animad- verted on the nefarious traffic of the pannel, stating, that if these young boys did not know where they could get a ready market for the stolen articles there would not be such inducements to commit thefts. The Jury unanimous- ly found him Guilty. After a suitable and impressive speech from his Lnrd hip. on the necessity of his future good behaviour, he was sentenced to be transported be- yond seas for 7 years. William Grant, Aberdeen, and George Moram, mariner, from Dundee, accused of housebreaking, . and of being habite and repute thieves. The Public Prosecutor having departed from the charge of housebreaking as to Moram, he pled Guilty. William Grant having pled Not Guilty, the case was remitted to the knowledge of an assize. It appeared from the evidence adduced, that the prisoners, along with two lads who were brothers, named MT. eod. had. intheendof the month of August last, gone one night to two shops in College Srn et, rented by Messrs, Levs, Masson, & Co for weaving cloth. That Grant had broken a pane of glass of one of the shops, and having entered by it, he opened the door from the inside, and ihe others got admission. That they stole from this shop, three webs of a particular kind of linen cloth called Dow- las. That they next entered the other shop, by means of removing some of the tyles on the roof, and stole from it, four webs of the same kind of cloth. The cloth Was taken the same night to the Links, and concealed in the sands, but was, a few nights after, removed fo the house of a William Simpson, vintner, Guest row. The property was identified by the weavers, from whose looms it had been stolen : and the particular ficts of the housebreaking and theft were proven by Neil AT; Lend, a soeins criminis, ( or one ofthe party) who was admitted an evidence for the Crown. The other M'Leod escaped soon after the theft. The Jury were addressed on behalf of the pannel Grant, by A. Urqubart, Esq. who pled as to the credibility of the evitiv- nct uf M'Leod, w ho had been jnost actively employ- ed in the whole business, and on account ofthe youth of the prisoner. Lord llermand then summed up the evi- dence in a very able and impartial manner ami the Jury having retired for a short time, returned with a verdict of guilty, but unanimously and earnestly recommended him to mercy, on account of his youth. The prisoner, after a most impressive speech from his Lord- hip, was sentenced to be executed here, on Friday the first day of June next, betwixt the hours of twoand four o'clock afternoon. He is a good looking young man, and we understand has not attained his 18th year. The Jury found George Moram Guilty, on his own confession, and he was sentenced to J4 years transporta- tion beyond seas. FRIDAY.— Helen Brelmer, from Stonehaven, accus- ed of child- murder and concealment of pregnancy. The , Public Prosecutor having agreed to depart from the i charge of murder, the pannel pled Guilty to the conceal- ; ment of pregnancy. The Jury found her Guilty, in terms of her own confession. She was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment in the Bridewell of this'city. George Summers, James Ritchie, and James Grcig. sea- men from Stonehaven, were accused of assaulting George Mayes, gamekeeper to Robert Barclay Allardice. Esq; of Ury. A number of witnesses were examined in this case, without materially elucidating the nature of it. It ap- peared from the evidence to be a drunken brawl in the streets of Stonehaven, on a market day in the month of November last. Robert Hunter, Esq; addressed the Jury retired for some time, returned to the Court with a verdict , of Guilty, but unanimously recommended the Prisoner j to mercy. The prisoner's Counsel then argued, that a capital punishment could not follow on the verdict now returned, and pleaded an arrest of judgment, on the follow ing grounds. That the Public Prosecutor had omitted to libel in the major proposition of the indictment, as an aggravation of the crime, that the pannel had broke up lock- fast places.; and on account of this omission, a ca- pital punishment Could not follow capital punish- ments. by the law of Scotland, did not follow on a simple theft, and that they only followed either where housebreaking was libelled on, or habit and repute, or a grave fun um had been committed, which this was not. The Public Prosecutor replied. The Judges were of | opinion, that the last punishment of the law followed in thi* case ; but willing to give the prisoner every benefit ofthe question, they certified the case to be tried by the Court of Justiciary, on the 14th May next. yllexander Mockie and Robert Mai trie, Blacksmiths, Aberdeen, were accused of various acts of reset of theft.— The prisoners pled Guilty to tiie two first, charges in the indictment, and the Public Prosecutor departed from the others. The Jury found them Guilty on their own con- fession. Lord Succoth, after having addressed them in an impressive speech, sentenced them to two years imprison- ment in the Bridewell of this city, and to be kept to hard labou r. The Caurt meets this day at ten o'clock, theie being other two trials, besides some appeals. Particulars in our next. STEAM VESSELS. The establishment of STEAM VESSELS to pass daily from Leith to Aberdeen, and from Aberdeen to Leith, will be productive of many advantages to the community. although the interests of the Proprietors ofthe Mail and Stage Coaches must no doubt suffer. The fine vessel the Tourist, lately launched at Perth, is now in the Wet Dock, Leith, getting in two Steam Engines of 40 horse power, and mcy soon he expected here. This vessel is if great dimensions—- one hundred and twenty- eight feet in length— forty in breadth— and elevc n feet depth— and is said to be fitted up in the most admirable manner for the accommodation of passengers. During the summer months, Ihe passage must be uncommonly pleasant; the vessels leaving the respective ports at seven in the morning, and completing the voyage at seven in the evening, after Having touched at several of the intermediate ports. We presume the vessels are constructed after the most approv ed models, as tho^ e that ply between London and Mar- gate, and in the River ; a Confectioner's Shop forms part of the establishment, and one for a Cook, or rather Res- taurateur, and a band of music, which prevents any an- noyance from the noise ofthe working of the machinery. " Travellers ( we quote the Scotsman) will then he able to reach Aberdeen in ten hours less time than at present, for about a sixth part ofthe expence, and with infinitely more comfort. Put the conveyance northward by Steam Ves- sels is not to terminate at Aberdeen. The same Company is to continue the navigation to Inverness, where they will be met by the Steam Vessels now plying on the Cale- donian Canal. Tbo intercourse between all parts of the country will thus be prodigiously facilitated, the various productions of art and industry will be better distributed,, prices and wages w ill be brought more nearly to. a level, and a new and powerful stimulus given to internal com- merce." There are steam vessels plying on the Caledonian Canal, and, when it is finished, the traveller, emhaikingat Lou- don, on board any of the magnificent and powerful steam vessels lately launched there for the northern trade,, may visit Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Inverness, and Glasgow, and reach Liverpool, in these conveyances alone, within ten days. This circuit is about 1200 miles, and in good weather, could easily he made in 150 hours ; thus allow- ing the traveller 90 hours ashore out ofthe ten days. We are happy to be informed, that on Sabbath Even- ing, April 21, at G o'clock, a SE KMONwill he preach- ed in the Relief Meeting House, St. Andrew's Street, in aid of the Baptist Mission. Owing to some disasters which have of late befallen this Mission, its pecuniary embarrass- ments are considerable.

As tiiis is stated merely as a Report, and the Communi- cation is anonymous, the Editor does not think himself entitled to enter into detailed circumstances; but, al- together agreeing with his Correspondent, that the public are entitled to full explanations upon the subject, he be- lieves that it is the duty of such of the Managers as have disapproved of the irregularity which led to the loss, t » s ate the case explicitly.

LONDON, Jpril IT. CATHOLIC HILL. The Earl of Donoughtnore last night moved the second reading of the Catholic Relief Bill in the Honseof Lords. The Noble Ea, rl in the course of his observations stated, that he was m,> t the advocate ofthe Biil as it stood, but proposed, if the Bill went into a. Committee, to maks several alterations, not however affecting the great princi- ple of the measure. Lord Mansfield opposed the motion, and moved, as an amendment, that the Bill be read a second tim « this day six months. This amendment was supported by the Bishop of London; They were followed by the Duke of Sussex and the Marquis of Jkn kiogham, who ably supported the original motion. Several Peer and Prelates took part in the debate, which was protracted to half- past tw elve o'clock, when, on tlia motion of the 50 against the second reading this night. The party opposed to the Bill anticipate a majority of Earl of Liverpool, the debate was adjourned until this day.
