The Convention then proceeded to consider the Peti- tion presented from' Arbroath ill 1S18, praying for ill alteration in the Set of that Burgh, which had been delay- ed last year, 011 account of the subject ot burgh reform bein< » then under the consideration of a Committee of the House of Commons. The alteration requested was. that on the first four vacancies which might occur 111 the Town Council, the same should be filled up by the Guildrv and Trades respectively ; and that these vacan- cies being so filled up. the Guildry and Trades should, at all future annual elections, have the right to nominate each four candidates, from which two Guildry and two Trades Councillors should be appointed by the Council. The petition was signed by the whole of the then Magis- trates and Town Council, and by all the members of the Guildrv and Incorporated Trades ; and an act of Council of the 7th July current, as well as resolutions of the Guildrv and Trades, approving of the prayer of the pe- tition, and requesting the Commissioner and Assessor to use their influence with the Convention to giant the same, were now also read ; upon which Mr. W. Ino- lis rose, and moved that the prayer of the petition should be granted. On this subject he trusted the Convention would be unanimous. Their powers were undoubted, as the whole community of Arbroath con- curred in the request, which was in itself just and rea- sonable ; he could therefore anticipate no objection what- ever to his motion. JIr W. Ritchie rose, not, he said, to second the mo- tion but to suggest that it should be seconded by the re- presentative of a Burgh of much greater consequence than the humble one which he appeared for. If the Lord Provost of Glasgow, who represented a populous and commercial city, would second the motion, it would confer upon it additional consideration. ' I he people of Scotland would consider this as a boon ; and as the altera tions prayed for were so obviously for the good ot the bur< rh, Kedid hope that his Lordship would support them. The Lord Provost of Glasgow said, that being called upon in this marked manner, he felt himself compelled to rise ; and, considering the whole circumstances of the present case, lie had no objection . to second the motion.— ( hear). He would decline entering into the general sub- ject of burgh reform. He saw great difficulty attending any general scheme of reform, though he was convinced that in several burghs certain reforms were necessary. It, however, the Convention were satisfied of their compe. tcncy to grant the alteration required by Arbroath, he would willingly, on general grounds, second the motion. W. W. Cook said, if the petition had been now before them for the first time, he should have been for delaying its consideration until it should have clearly appeared that it had the full approbation of all the parties interested ; as he would never consent to- any rash measure of reform. Tills was, however, no new measure. The petition had been before them since 1818 ; it was sanctioned by the signatures of all the parties concerned ; and by the resolu- tions which had been read of the prose it Magistrates and the corporate bodies, h was evident that the subject bad been fully considered in the burgh ; and as the alteration required appeared also just and rea onable, he was dis- posed to agree to the motion. But he trusted the grant- in- of this petition would he held as 110 precedent for the Convention, an 1 thai tW would never take up any pro- posal of reform until they were satisfied that it had the full consent of all the parties interested. Mr. Cook then call- ed ifie attention of the Convention to what he considered an ambiguity or obscurity in the language of the peti- tion regarding the alteration proposed, aud moved that the decision of the question should he delayed lill next day, in order that the Commissioner and Assessor for Arbroath might consider and amend the objectionable paragraph, so as to do away any ground of future cavil or litigation on the subject. This proposal after sume conversation, was agreed to. An explanation was given for the Burgh of Kirkcud- bright, why a sum, voted many years ago. for assisting in erecting a new harbour there, had not been expended It was Considered satisfactory ; but ordered to be stated in writing to the Annual Committee, that it might be re- gularly entered in the record. Petitions were then read from the Burghs of Perth, Dundee, Montrose, Arbroath, Forfar, & c. complaining of the expense of alimenting criminals in the jails, and requesting the attention of the Convention to the subject, when it was agreed to remit them to the Annual Com- mittee, to consider and report to next meeting, and oil the motion of the Lord Provost of Glasgow, it was remitted to the same Committee to inquire into, and report upon, the withdrawing of the military guard from burgh jails. The Convention then adjourned till next day at twelve o'clock. The Third day ( Thursday) was occupied chiefly with matters of form. The Committee on the Arbroaill peti- tion reported in favour of the application which, under on explanation, as to what was understood to be desired by the petitioners themselves. was OBJNTM; the Provosts of Aberdeen and Perth only dissenting, the fotlffer de- siring his dissent or protest to be entered formally, on the ground that any alteration whatever was illegal otul vn- coustitvtional. Much time was wasted in adjusting the terms of this explanation ; and a good deal more was con- sumed on a motion, made by the Commissioner ( we think) for Forfar, that an Abstract of the Accounts of the Con- vention should be printed annually for the use of the Members. This motion was strenuously supported by the Lord Provost of Glasgow, who dwelt on the great advan- tages to IK derived from publicity. The more openly, it was insisted, that they and all public bodies conducted their affairs the better. His Lordship was warmly sup- ported by the Assessor for Kinghorn, and the motion was agreed to, nernine contra dice nte. An animated discussion, but rather of an interlocutory nature, then took place in regard to the instructions to be given to the Agent in London respecting any Parliamen- tary proceedings that may be taken between and next Con- vention, in regard to the bounty on linen; the Provost of Perth being most anxious to retain the bounty, and the Provost of Glasgow to have it done away, as part of a vi- cious and impolitic system. Mr. Ivory concurred in the general views of the Lord Provost of Glasgow, but agreed with Mr. Ritchie in thinkir , tha*. as the Irish bounty would probably be continued, it- ras desirable, if the sys- tem was to be continued at all, that Scotland should par- ticipate in the bounty. Both reprobated the system ; but they were of opinion that under the peculiar circumstances of the case, the interest of the Scotch burghs should he attended to. This matter was referred to the Annual Committee, of the meetings of which in relation to this busi^ e., s, Glasgow and all the other Burghs should receive notice. The Meeting then broke up, after voting thanks, ( which were truly merited), to the Lord Provost of Edin. burgh, for his urbanity aud attention as Chairman of the Convention. PARIS, July 11— More than a week has passed since it was known at Paris that Napoleon was no more. I have delayed writing till I could inform you of the effect of this important intelligence— I do not mean on the funds, for mi human being in Pa. ris thought of the connexion til! they saw the idea in the English Journals ; sentiments and caleulatios of a much higher order imuiediately occupied the spirits of Frenchmen of all classes. The rtimour had been so oft repeated, that, 011 its first circulation, it was met by the smile of pleasantry and unbelief ; but when the same telegraph which had so frequently appriied his astonished capital of the rapid progress of his camp, and the splendid triumph oKliis arms, commented its mystic move- ments— when official lips proclaimed the fact, and it was announced to the ruling Sovereign, unbelief gave place to stupid consternation and despair. I first heard the truth from a Deputy of the extreme gavche, who was warmly opposed to Napoleon, but who had, nevertheless, propo- sed with others that his person should he placed under the protection of'the honour of Jie French people. " He had fine conceptions." said he, " and did many great things, but, surrounded by emcgres and the same niiscrob/ es who are flattering and losing Louis, it, is no'wounder that he- was below in virtue, his station in talent, and that he com- mitted great faults. His death may be yet serviceable to the cause of liberty." Louis had that very day removed to St. Cloud for the season ; the illuminations were glittering in the approa- ches to the palace, and were reflected by the silent and gliding waters of the Seine, when Pasquier arrived. It was amidst all the affected gaiety of the Advent— amidst the solemn shade of its majestic woods, and in the apart- ments slill rich in the magnificent proofs of his genius and his taste, that the once servile Prefect of Police of Napo- leon, now raised to the dignity of Minister of Foreign Affairs, announced to hi-: master, who is a mass of dis- ease and corruption, the death of the mighty, active, healthy, Napoleon. What the eflect was upon the Royal groupe, France is not informed ; the next evening I saw Monsieur, his silly son. and Madame, simpering, and chattering as usual, and coaxing some coarse looking Co- lonel of gens d'nrujes. Some say they are not surprised, that at least, certain individuals, and certain parties in certain Cabinets, know the history of the hereditary can- cer. Others declared that tile children of St. I. ouis are more horrified than ever, that they see in every old soldier an avenging foe, and that because the corpse of the father is at St. Helena, flit residence of the son is a great deal too near / lor them. As for the immense mass of the population, the impres- sion on them is more profound and awful every day. I know a Gentleman who was in the Halle an Cuir when the news was mentioned ; all business was immediately should not increase, hut this promise, !:•• as you see. not worth more than his former one— to give us a Constitution; A loan contracted 1> V the 1' rdviuce of lSraiiilcnbtirgh in time of war, has thrown tiie Government into a singular perplexity;— The Ministers have no money to repav the idan : tliev proposed an agreement to the chief members of the Stiftes of this Province, which these members refuse to enter into without the consent df their col- leagues. The Government ought therefore to as- semble the States, but the Ministers dare not run such a risk ; they, in consequence, form schemes over and over, to get money, but as it seems with- out effect. Several people are detained 111 prison for more thai) two years, without receiving sentence, which gives you an idea how justice is administered in this country. SPAIN. MADRID, July I.— Yesterday, tlic King, ac- companied bv the Queeu and Royal Family, went to the Cortes to close the Session. The Iloval Speech, which is very long, commences with praising the intelligence, patriotism, and virtues of the Coites. The new organization of the army, so well adapted to the end or'its institution, is the work of the Congress ; the decree on the subject of public instruction form the first elements to the suhiimest degree of know- ledge, will diffuse light and useful information among all classes ; the system of finance, which derives the public revenue from taxes the least burdensome, partly already known to the Spanish nation, and partly new and conformable to the constitution of the monarchy— all these are the work of the Cortes. After thanking die Legislature for their '* zeal and wisdom" shown in these measures, and for their gene- rosity in providing for the expenses of his household and family, the King says— 44 Our relations of good understanding and of friend- ship with other Powers, have sustained no change since the opening of the Session, and I shall endeavour to pre- serve them by all the possible means worthy of the heroic nation, which 1 glory in governing. FORK IG N INTELLIGE XCE. suspended, and the tradesmen all retired without making a single purchase ; on the Saturday night the bust of Na- poleon was promenaded on the Place i'. o Louvre, the guard were called out. and the people fled. Several of my acquaintance heard the tumult. Sunday, multitudes put 011 black, and others went to salute the Column d'Austerli'z, in the evening there were great crowds on the Palais lloyal in black. Multitudes will not yet be- lieve that Bonaparte is dead, and even among the Garde Royale, this obstinate incredulity remains. The account of his interment has, however, compelled many to believe, and the effect is certainly terrible for the reigning house. I asked one of the Garde, whom I know, he i , related to one of my domestics, what his comrades said ? " They « ill not believe," said he, " Why?" " Because they dare not, they fear tike effect on themselves." " Ah !" continued he, • lawrved him in Russia too, and if I could see him aga'm. I would follow him to the end of the world—' tis too cruel to be dragged from his wife, his mother, his family, and his son. and to be carried to a hole by grenadiers, foreigners, and gaolers," The tears ran down his checks, and the drops tiungon hismustachios —- but not a muscle was distorted. Superficial foreign observers would be at a loss to know or imagine the state of public feeling, where a person who knows well the people, and the mode of getting at them, finds it most strongly pronounced A look thrown upon an object— a sigh in a certain place— a shrug when an individual passes — a bow to something of which a stranger knows not the history— the manner of placing a ribband or tying a knot, or holding a cane— all are indications of a depth of sensation which must one day burst through all the mass of spies, gens d'annes, agcus provocateurs, laws, plots, & c. and in a country where there is not the vestige of liberty for the press or public opinion, and where agents of the police are transformed into members of every class of society, from porters and shoe- blacks to Counts and Nobles— it is not easy to understand- that a certain opinion prevails in wiiud.: of y. lotha of the people— but it is not less true. A11 Officer of the ex- garde met one of his brother of- ficers and told him of the fact. The latter no sooner without assigning any reason for sodoin?, and that he was then preparing to Lave town. On the ris- ing of the curtain, there being some slight distur- bance and a call for the Manager, Mr. DufFawaiti appeared and stated, that Mr. Kean had been, dur- ing the day, repeatedly importuned by the Malin- ger and his friends to appear iii the part, but that he absolutely declined. Mr. Dud, on lieing ques- tioned, said, he believed the reason of Mr. Kcan's conduct was want of patronage.— Dostoij Paper, Ma il 21. " We understand," savs the Boston Daily Ad- vertiser, " that Mr. Kean, who was announced for the part of Richard the Third last evening, de- clined playing on account of the thinness of the house." Mr. Kean has published another letter in whicii he savs—" As I find it impossible for individual ef- forts to stem the torrent of opposition with which I have to contend, and as I likewise consider it in- consistent w ith my feelings and character to make additional apologies, 1 have resolved to return to my native country, and beg leave to oli'er to the public my thanks for t he portion of favour Ix- stoivcd upon me, aud respectfully bid them farewell." Deum was sung. The King and his family after- wards entered the Hall of tlie Cortes, where the King took the oath to maintain and observe the constitutional bases decreed by Congresss on the 9t! i May last. " During this august and solemn ceremonial the most perfect tranquillity and good order pre- vailed." AUGSBURG, July 8 Intelligence arrived yes- terday from Odessa, which gives reason to believe that a rupture will shortly take place between Russia and . the Porte. The Turks, bv moderate measures and taking proper advantage of their amicable dispo- sitions with foreign Powers, might have avoided the evils which menace tlieni ; but pursuing a diffe- rent line of conduct, they have, with inconceivable furv committed excesses revolting to humanity. heard it than he went to the place du Chalelet, and less magnanimous than his old master, blew out his brains. The Government has excited not only the horror, but the indignation of the public, by sending out hundreds of wretches, to cry tlie details of Bonaparte's death, for a sous, in all the streets; and not only this, but afterwards the pretended Confessions of Napoleon before his death, in which he is made to describe himself as the greatest monster that ever lived. These papers are embellished with the crown and arms of the Bourbons. All this, when the Ministers of the Interior— ofForeign Affiirs— of Po- lice— of War— were all of them the servants of Bonaparte, and some of them the most servile and abject. I send you a copy of the Confessions, and also— Pensec d'un Soldat a boltl and affecting appeal, just published, and which sells most astonishingly. There are also seve- ral pictures out, but all mystical; I send you one. There are, Le Tombeau d'un Brave— Le Convoi— Adieu.— All these are eagerly bought, and without a name or a word, circulate and excite the most terrible c motions. There is one party less in France ; all the friends of the The treaty with the United States, which terminates our differences with that Government, and which com- prises the cession of the Floridas, has been ratified by its President. I flatter myself, that by means of this treaty, accompanied with a fixation of limits, which will be made by a mixed Committee, our relations with the United States will remain in future unalterable, 41 The firmness of my government, and the generous and active co- operation of the King of the Netherlands, put our commerce, for the moment, in safety from all hostility on the part of the Regency of Algiers. " In consequence of the new order of things, generous- ly and spontaneously adopted by the King of the united kingdom of Portugal and Brazil, his most faiihful Ma jesty has resolved to return to Lisbon, leaving the heredi- tary Prince at Rio Janeiro, in the capacity of Viceroy I shall profit bv the return of his Majesty to renew the negotiations, relative to the occupation of Monte Video and the eastern bank of the Rio de la Plata. " I have made known to the Cortes my sentiments on the aflairs of Naples and Piedmont. Some ill- disposed persons wished to give to these events all importance, which can iu uo way belong to them, with respect to Spain " The Speech concludes by stating that the kingdom II enjoys tranquillity," a hand, which had existed, having been dispersed by the energetic measures of Government and the zeal of the troops ; that the ameliorations of the constitutional system are already felt; and that the King will direct all his endeavours to the re establishment of order in the provinces beyond sea. " The Spaniards of the two hemispheres must he convinced, that I desire no: h- ing so much as their happiness, founded on the integrity of the Monarchy and the observance ofthe constitution." The President of the Cortes replied in a Speech of less length, the only remarkable passage of which is the following : " In the midst of such vast occupations, the Cortes, subject by the constitution to a fixed term for the duration of their Sessions, and notwithstanding the foresight, with which your Majesty has prorogued them, see. Sire, the approach of this term, without finding a possibility of concluding the important affairs submitted to them, and oL. om. Ihu uut^ ol of the Statu Hooting between till* hope of having its future destiny confirmed, and the fear that new plots may make it take a contrary direction. Your Majesty, partaking these fears, lias deigned to announce the convocation of the Extraordinary Cortes." The moment the President finished his speech, shouts burst from the public of" I. ong live the Con- stitutional King !"—" Long live the National Con- gress .'"— On the departure of their Majesties, the President said, " the Ordinary Cortes ofthe years 1820— 21 close the Session of the present Legisla- Hundreds " of victims have been massacred in the streets; and in pursuance of the orders of the Grand Signior himself, who looked for the total an- nihilation of the Greeks with impatience, the wives and children of Christians have been embarked in small vessels in detachments of 150 and 200, sent to sea, and thrown to the bottom of the abyss at an aj, pointed signal. Under these circumstances, the Russian Ambassador, Baron Strogonolf, was de- sirous of once more taking part 111 delence of huma- nity ; but the rage of the barbarians knew no bounds, and the remonstrances of the Ambassador remained for three weeks unanswered, as if in defiance of the humane Russians. On the 12th of June, General Langcron, Go- vernor of Odessa, communicated to the comniere al interest a note addressed by Baron StrogonofF to the Porte, relative to the violations of the treaties concluded between Russia and the Ottoman Em- pire ; he formally protests against the measures adopt- ed by this latter Power relative to commerce, and holds it responsible for the losses which the Russian inhabitants may suffer. Another note, communi- nieated on the same day to the commercial body, an- nonnced the measures proper to be taken to ascer- tain the losses of Russian merchants, in consequence of the new step of the Ottoman Porte. There was scarcely any doubt of a speedy rupture between the two States, when on the 18th, farther intelligence of the 14th June arrived from Constantinople, which showed that the Porte was no longer scrupulous in its conduct towards the Russian Ambassador, and even that it was its intention designedly to give liitn offence ; he repaired to Bujukdere. Immediately after the arrival of this intelligence which was quickly followed by dispatches announcing fresh cruelties, the following Proclamation was posted at the corner of every street; it has excited a lively sensation ; a rupture is expected. PROCLAMATION. Bv order of the Governor of Odessa.— His Excellency Baron Strogonoff announces in a dispatch addressed to his Excellency the Governor- General, dated from Bujuk- deie, the 19th of May, that he had advised the Russian merchants residing in Constantinople to pat their affairs in order provisionally, and place their property in a state of security, that they may not be taken unawares by a Go- vernment whicli no longer has any regard to moderation in the line of conduct it h as adopted.

Every body be- lieves, that, his detention caused his death— if no violent means were employed. All wait for Bertrand's account, and rely on that. The Government in the mean time is doing ail it can to lower itself. I send you as a proof M. Eilcagarav. FROM GERMAN PAPERS. TRIESTE, July 1.— It is stated that Alt Pacha, ofjanina, is not only still living, but that he has become a Christian, and more than ever makes com • nion cause with the Greeks. It is said, that the Ottoman squadron, which was cruising in the waters of Prevesa, has been entirely captured by the insurgent fleet. The Greeks have a squadron of observation which cruises near the Dardanelles, waiting the favourable moment for acting against Constantinople. HERJIANSTAD r, June 24'.— A traveller, who has arrived from Kicbenou, a commercial town of Russia, states, that the Russian troops expect dailv, and with the greatest impatience, orders to enter Moldavia. CONSPIRACY IN PRUSSIA. BERLIN, June 26.— A conspiracy to introduce the Spanish Constitution into Prussia has been dis- covered. At the head of it stood a Nobleman in the neighbourhood of Dantzic, a relation of M, von Humboldt, the late Minister. A great number of country people had pledged themselves bv oath to support lnm ; his design was to take bv surprise Stargard, a strong town, where a depot of arms be- longing to the Landwehr would have furnished the means necessary for such a project. lie probably stood in collection with some powerful people in Po- land, where the Hussian Government is much de- tested. A short time before the conspirators intend- ed to begin their work, the plot was discovered, and fourteen members arrested. The Government is anxious to prevent any thing transpiring of this ac- cident, which although ineffectual, proves enough, that sooner or later, our military despotism must have an end. The Government plunges itself, from day to day, in greater embarrassment ; for, in spite of all the restrictions, theexpetiees are greater than the reve- nue, because the soldiery swallows up such enormous sums. It is true' the King promised that our debts AMERICA, SfC, American Papers have been received to the 10th ult. They contain interesting accounts from the seat of war in South America, by which it appears the Patriots are proceeding rapidly in their career— Caraccas, La Guavra, and Porto Cabeilo, having already fallen into their hands ; the Royalist forces seem to be but few in number, and not able to op- pose the progress of the Patriots We have also, by this conveyance, advices from the Snuthren Ocean. The Dutch squadron in the straits of Banca have made au unsuccessful attack upon Palembang, and were waiting for reinforcements. The Mission- aries in the Sandwich Islands, it is said, were vcrv comfortably situated, and well treated by the natives, but they had made very little progress in the con- versation of them, from their firm attachment to their established usages. PHILADELPHIA, June 7.— We have Cnracoa Papers, of May lJ) th, which state that a division of the Patriot Army, under General Bermudez, advancing to the capital of that province, were on- posed by the troops under Colonel Esturriz ; they met near Rio Chieo, when the Rova'ists were to- tally routed. The latter, then under the command of Colonel Arbuthnot, were again attacked, but again defeated, and Colonel Arbuthnot killed in the action. The Captain- General of the Caraccas ( Corrca), finding it impossible to oppose the Patriots, called a Junta, and determined to abandon the pro- vince Up to Monday last, Caraccas had not been taken possession of, but the firing of cannon was heard, as well as the ringing of bells, which inferred that the Patriots had entered. La Guavra was subsequently evacuated, a fleet of 45 sail being employed for that purpose, bound to Porto Cabello. By arrivals from Porto Cabello, we learn that Generals I, a Torre and Morales had formed a junc- tion at Pao, a town between Calaboza and San Carlos, and close to the Republican head- quarters. NEW YORK, June 5.— By the Hippomenes, from Curacoa, we learn that Porto Cabello was in possession ofthe Patriots ; also a fleet of upwards of 20 sail, having on board a great number of in- habitants from those places which had fallen into the hands ofthe Patriots ; among them was the Governor of Cora. A letter from Ilavannah, dated May 22, says— " Bv a late arrival from Vera Cruz, it appears that the inhabitants are m great consternation for its safety.

We have this evening ( Fridav), received a Ma- drid Gazette Extraordinary, dated the 7th inst. which contains the following official article :— An extraordinary courier, dispatched from Lis- bon, by the King's Charge d'Affaires to the Portuguese Government, lias brought to the Spa- nish Government the following communication, dated the 4th inst. :— " Yesterday, very early in the morning, a signal was made that the Portuguese squadron was in sight, and at eleven a. m. the ship of the line John VI. anchored it, the Port of Belem, and the other ships of the convey in succession. To- day, at noon, his Majesty and the Royal Family landed with great pomp, and proceeded to the Cathedral, where Te V LONDON, July 21. CORONATION OF GEORGE IV The firing of gUns and ringing of bells at one o'clock on Thursday morning, announced the opening of the in- teresting day. and so early as two o'clock the streets re- sounded ivith the rattling of carriages of every descrip- tion, passing to the scene of this gorgeous ceremony, or its vicinity. t . ,, At three o'clock the platform leading frorti Westmin- ster Ilailto the Abbey, was thrown open to public view. The removal of the boards which formed i's sides com- menced on Wednesday night and discovered the interior, like the celebrated Trojan horse, filled with soldiers.— They were lying down with arms at their sides, excepts few « ho were on the alert to prevent the intrusion of the people. The canvass covering was furled up close to the top ridge, thus affording a view of the procession to the spectators in the most elevated places. The ledge along the outside of he platform was occupied by a detachment of the grenadier guards. There were also in attendance several troops of the 1st, ad, and Blue regiment of Horse guards, which were stationed in several places near Westminster, but not in line with the platform. At this early hour carriages made their approach from several parts or the town, with persons entitled to seats to see the solemn ceremony, and with others who had paid for seats outside to see the procession, we were sorry to see that persons who had been at such expence in fitting up places for the accommodation of the public, were not likely to be remunerated for their trouble, as seats which were ex- pected to bring three guineas, were offered this morning at 10s. Very good seats were obtained at so low as 7s. The working classes of the public did not appear to take that interest in the coronation which was expected. The streets and neighbourhood of Westminster were not great- ly crowded. THE QUEEN. About half- past five o'clock her Majesty in her state carriage, drawn by six horses, and accompanied by Lord and Lady Hood and Lady Ann Hamilton, followed by another carriage, entered St. James's Park by Constitu- tion Hill- gate. Her Majesty was not observed by the public until she entered tlu Park, but it immediately dis- played a busy scene by persons turning to greet her Ma- jesty, and by the time she arrived at Storey's- gate, a great concourse of persons had collected, who loudly cheered her. and the general exclamation was " God bless your Majesty ! stick up for your rights, we will pro- tect you I" The soldiers at the different posts as her Majesty passed presented arms to her. About six o'clock her Majesty's carriage entered Deau's- yard, and from the length of time before it was again seen, it was confidently asserted that her Majesty had been admitted, but at seven o'clock the carriage was again visible in Parliament street, her Majesty still seated in it with the same cheerful ap- pearance that she bore in her passage down. Her Ma- jesty was dressed in white, and had on her head a cap or " bandeau, with a large plume of white ostrich feathers, she appeared in full health, and returned the congratula- tions of the public by bowing to them in her usual gra- cious manner. Her Majesty having driven round by the west front of the Abbey, proceeded in her carriage by the side of the platform towards the Hall. When the carriage drew up. Lord Hood alighted, and proceeded to search for some means of ingress to the Hall, from which the carriage was separated by the platform. Having found a gate in the rear of the Champion's stable, he returned to the car- riage ; and her Majesty, having alighted, was conducted typhis Lordship towards that gate, attended by Lady Hood and Lady Ann Hamilton. On reaching the gate the royal party was informed that it was no thoroughfare. They then proceeded by the side of the platform, till they arrived at the passage across it from the end of Parliament Street, which was open for persons with Peers' tickets. Here an Officer of the guards presented himself, and half- drawing his sword, sskedfor their authority to pass; when Lord Hood pre- sented a ticket, and they were allowed to pass over the platform. They then proceeded towards the House of Lords, to try to enter the Hall by some of the passages, l)> Jt were debarred from all ingress to the Hall. They then proceeded to the passage leading into the Abbey from Poets'- corner, and were informed that peremptory orders had been given not to admit any persons not fur- nished with a regular ticket. Lord Hood asked whether tftey were aware that it was the Queen who sought admit- tance? and her Majesty twice repeated, " I am your Queen! I am your Queen !" The persons in attend- j snce repeated tliat their orders were peremptory not to nil- | niit any person whatever without a ticket. Her Majesty with her attendants then returned to her Majesty's car- riage and drove off greeted as the carriage passed along with the most enthusiastic cheers. The reception of her Majesty by the people, of all ranks, was most flattering and enthusiastic; and the demeanour of those persons on duty to whom it fell to approach her Majesty, was uni- formly marked with due and becoming respect. The carriage on returning proceeded slowly along, at- tended by an immense concourse of people; passing Charing- cross, Cock spur- street, Pall- mall, up St. James's street, and along Piccadilly to Hammersmith. The multitude kept increasing in number as the carriage mov- ed along ; but except some hissing and groaning at the Horse Guards and Carlton Uouse, no other symptom of ill humour was displayed. Her Majesty entered Cambridge House at half past seven o'clock, when the crowd that had accompanied her separated. As they went along they vented their dis- pleasure on the preparations which were made for illumi- nating the houses of several Noblemen, & c. where they broke great numbers of lamps and many windows. THE KING. About nine o'clock on Wednesday night, the King left Carlton Palace for the house of the Speaker of the House of Commons, in Palace- yard, where his Majesty slept. His Majesty's coach was escorted by a strong de- tachment of the Oxford Blues, accoutred as cuirassiers. They made a most beautiful appearance. The carriage drove at a rapid rate across the parade in St. James's Park through Storey's- gate and Great George- street His Majesty was recognized by the crowd on his passage, and saluted with every expression of loyalty and attach- ment. Prior to the departure of his Majesty from Carlton Palace, the crowd between Storey's- gate and Westmin- ster Hall had been cleared by the Scots Greys, so as to make a convenient passage for the carriage, and his . Ma- jesty did not set out until after an officer had arrived at the'Falace gate to announce that all was ready. His Majesty was guarded through the night by the Lord Great Chamberlain and the Usher of the Black Rod.— There were no preparations ofimportance. His Majesty's sofa bed was brought from Carlton House. On Thuis- d. iy morning the Lord Great Chamberlain at seven o'clock, carried to his Majesty his shirt and apparel, and with the Lord Chamberlain of the Household dressed his • Majesty. His Majesty then breakfasted and afterwards proceeded to his chamber, near the south entrance into Westminster Hall. The Peers having been called over ill the House of Lords by the Deputy Garter at Arms, proceeded to the Hall, where the other persons appointed to walk in the procession had been previously arranged on the right and left by the Officer of Arms, leaving an open passage in the middle. His Majesty preceded by the Great Officers of State, entered the Hall precisely at ten o'clock, and took his seat in the Chair of State at the table, the whole of the company rising and remaining standing during the time of his Majesty's presence, and the band playing God save the King. At this moment a gun was fired to announce that his Majesty had taken the chair. The Manpiis of Salisbury not being in his proper place ns one of the great Officers, the error was detected by his Majesty, who called to the Deputy Garter and pointed it out, with some remarks on the inadvertence, appar- ently of a jocose nature, for his Majesty was smiling as he spoke. While the procession was moving off, his Majesty called to him successively the several Pages in attend- ance, and spoke to each of them with the greatest urbanity and condescension. His Majesty afterwards conversed most affably with the Nobles near him, and called the I Duke or York to him, and spoke with him for a few minutes. The regalia having been brought by the Lord Cham- berlain, assisted by the Officers of the Jewel Office, and bis Majesty having commanded Deputy Garter to sum- mon the Noblemen and Bishops who are to bear them, the Deputy Lord Great Chamberlain, then taking up the several swords, sceptres, the orb, and crown, placed them in the hands of those by whom they were to be carried* fir. it, St. Edward's Stuff, by the Marquis of Salisbury. Second, The Spurs, by the Lord Caltliorpe, as De- puty to the Baroness Grey de Ruthyn. Third, The Sceptic- with the Crdss, bj the Marquis WeUesley. ,. , l oin- th, The Pointed Sword of Temporal Justice, by tile Earl of Galloway. . Fifth; The Pointed Sword of Spiritual Justice, by the Duke of Northumberland. sixth, Cui- taiia, or Sword of Mercy, by the Duke of Newcastle. Seventh, the Sword of State, by the Dpfee of Dorset. Eighth, the Sceptre with the Dove, by the Duke of Rutland. Ninth, The Orb. by the Duke of Devonshire. Tenth, St. Edward's Crown, by the Marquis of Angle- sey. as Lord High Steward. Eleventh, The Patina, by the Bishop of Gloucester. Twelfth, The Chalice, by the Bishop of Chester. Thirteenth. The Bible, by the liis. hop of Ely. The two Bishops to support his Majesty, viz. Lincoln and Oxford, were then callcd, and placed themselves on each side of the King. PROCESSION TO THE ABBEY. The second gun was fired at ' 25 minutes past ten o'clock, and the procession moved upon blue cloth spread on the platform, from the throne in Westminster- hall to the great steps in the Abbey Church ; the following anthem, " O Lord, grant the King a long life." & e. beingsungin parts, in succession with Iris Majesty's band playing, the sounding of trumpets, and the beating of drums, until the arrival in the Abbey. ( Here follows the order of procession.) In the early progress of the procession from Westmins- ter Hall to the Abbey across New Palace- yard, there was a little straggling, and the van had to halt twice or thrice to allow the rear to close; it then proceeded in very good order. His Majesty walked with a firm and dignified step. On his passage he was greeted with the most rap- turous plaudits. The Ladies were most prominent in the expression of their joy. There was an incessant clapping of hands, waving of hats and handkerchiefs, and cheering along the whole line. His Majesty seemed pleased with the manner in which he was received, and bowed graciously to the spectators on both sides. His Majesty wore the hat of the Order of the Garter, decorated with a plume of ostrich feathers, surmounted by a beautiful black heron feather. Miss Fellows, the herbwoman, who led the procession, wore a superb lace dress, over white satin, with a long flowing scarlet mantle, embroidered with gold, achaplet of red and white roses in her head. Her six maids wore lace dresses, with wreaths of flowers, and across the body scarfways. On the arrival of the procession at the Abbey, the Herb Woman and her Maids and the Serjeant- porter remained at the entrance within the great west door, the drums and trumpets tiled oil'to their gallery over the entrance door. The Archbishop then pronounced the benedictions, the Bishops and the Peers answered each benediction with a loud Amen, l'be Archbishop then, turning to the people, said, " And the same. Lord. God Almighty gnitH," & c. The King then kissed the Archbishops and Bishops, who knelt before him The Tc I) t: um was sung, during which time the King removed to the chair on which his Majesty first sat. on the egst side of the throne. THE I NTH RON IZXTION. Te T) evm being ended, the King was then inthroaed by the Bishops and Peers; and the Archbishop pronoun- ed the exhortation, " Stand firm.,: ind hold fast," & c. THE HOMAGE. V The Archbishop of Canteiburv then knelt . before the King, and. for himself and the other Lords spiritual, pro- nounced the words of Ijpmage. the Bishops kneeling around him. anil saying after, liinl. Tile Archbishop then kissed his Majesty's luft cheek, and the rest of the Bishops sifter htm, and retired. Then the Duke of York ascend- ed the steps of the throne, took off bis coronet, knelt be- fore the King, and, for himself and the other Dukes of the Blood Royal, pronounced the words of homage, the rest putting off their coronets, knolt. with hiin and about him, and said after. him. The Duke of York then touch- ed the crown upon his Majesty's head, and kissed his Majesty's left cheek, the rest of the Dukes of the Blood Royal after him, and retired. . The Dukes and other Peers observed the same, the senior of each degree pro- nouncing the words of homage, and the rest of the same degree saying after him, and each Peer of the same de- gree, successively, touched his Majesty's crown, and kiss- ed his Majesty's left cheek, and then retired. During this time, the Treasurer of his Majesty's House- hold threw about the medals of the coronation. During the homage the sceptre with the cross was held on the King's tight hand, by the Lord of the Manor of Worksop ; and the sceptre with the duve, by the Duke of Rutland. THE HOLY SACltAMENT. After the homage, life two Bishops, who had read the epistle and gospel, received from the altar, by the hands of the Archbishop, the patina and the chalice, which they carried into St. Edward's Chapel, and brought from tliene UniJeJ Kingdom, or that lie ought not to enjoy the-, same, here is his Champion, who saith that he: l. icth, ami is a false traitor ; being ready in . person to ebri.^ Uat with him, and in this, Quarrel will adventure his life against him ori what day soe. ver he shall J> e appointed." .. Whereupon the Champion threw , down his gauntlet ; whie. h, having lain, a short time upon the ground, the Herald. took up and delivered again to the Champion. They then advanced to the middle of the hall, vvlierc tlje « ceremony was again performed in the same manner. Lastly, they advanced to tlie steps o. f the throhe. where the Ilerald ( and those who preceded him) ascended to the middle of the. steps, proclaimed the challenge in tije like mangier; when the Champion having thrown down his gauntlet and received it again from the Herald, made a low obeisance to the King; whereupon the Cup- bearer, having received from. the Officer of the Jewel- house a gold cup and Cover filled with wine, presented the same to tlie Ring, and his Majesty haying drank to the Cham- pion, sent to him by the. Cup- bearer the said cup, which the Champion ( having put on his gauntlet} received, and having made a. low obeisance to the King, drank of tire wine ; after which, making another low obeisance to his Majesty, and being accompanied as, before, he departed out of the hall, taking with him the said cup and cover as his fee. ... P11O C L A MATT O N" OF THE STYLES. . Immediately after. Garter, attended, by Ularenceux, Norrov, Lyon, Ulster, and the rest of the officers of arms, proclaimed his Majesty's styles in. Latin, i'Vench, and English, three several times ; first upon the uppermost step of the elevated platform, next in the mjddle of the hall, and lastly at the bottom of the hall, the officers of arms, before each proclamation, crying " Largesse" in the usual manner. SECQND COURSE. The second Course was then served up with the same ceremony as the first. SERVICE IN PURSUANCE OF CLAIMS. Then the Lord of the Mauorof Nether Bilsingtou pre- sented his Majesty with three tfjpple cups. The office of. the Chief Butler of England, w, as executed by the Duke of Norfolk, as Earl of ArdndeJ, and Lord of the Manor of Keninghall, who received a gold bafchi and ewer as his fee. Dinner being concluded, the, Lord Mayor and twelve principal citizens of London, as assjstants to the chief Butler of England, accompanied by the King's Cup* bearer, and Assistant, presented to his Majesty wine in a the bread upon the patina and the v ine in the chalice. Ilis Majesty then descended from the throne, and went to the altar, where, taking off his crown, his Majesty delivered it to the Lord Great Chamberlain to hold. Then the Bishops delivered the patina and chalice into the King's hands ; and his Majesty delivered them to the Archbishop, who reverently placed the same upon the altar covering them with a fair linen cloth. His Majesty then received the sacrament, the Archbishop administering the bread, and the Dean of Westminster the cup. The choir then sang the last anthem, " Blessed be thou, Lord God of Israel," & c. ; and, at the conclusion, the trumpets sounded, the drums beat, and, amidst the accla- mations of the assembly, the King put on his crown, and, taking the two sceptres in his hands, again ascended the throne, and sat there, supported and attended as before, until the conclusion of the post- communion service and the blessing. The Choirs of the Chapel Royal and of Westminster im- mediately proceeded with his Majesty's band, to the organ gallery ; and on his Majesty's entering the Abbey, the Choirs commenced singing the anthem, t% 1 was' glad when they said unto me, * We will go into the House of the Lord', " & c. The Prebendaries and Dean of Westminster filed off to the left, about the middle of the nave, and there await- ed the King's coming into the church ; Mien they again fell into the procession. The standards were delivered bythe bearers of them to pages at the entrance of the choir, and borne in the return. The Princes of the Blood Royal were conducted to their seats as Peers. The Prince Leopold to his seat in the Royal Box. The Barons of the Cinque Ports bearing the canopy and the Gentlemen Pensioners, remained at the entrance of the choir. The King, ascending the theatre, passed on the south side of the throne to the chair of state on the east side thereof, opposite to the altar; and after his private devo- tion ( kneeling down upon the faldstool), took his seat, the two Bishops, his supporters, stand on each side; the Noblemen bearing the four swords on his right hand, the Deputy Lord Great Chamberlain and the Lord High Constable on his left; the Great Officers of State, the De- puty Earl Marshal, the Dean of Westminster, the Noble- men bearing the Regalia, Trainbearers, with Deputy Garter, the Lord Lyon, the Lord Mayor of London and Black Rod, standing above the King's Chair.

The Knights of the Garter deliver- ed the pall to the Lord Chamberlain. THE ANOINTING. Upon the conclusion of the hymn, the Archbishop read the prayer preparatory to the anointing (" O Lord, Holy Father, who, bythe anointing of oil, didst of old make and consecrate Kings, Priests, and Prophets," & c.) At the conclusion of this prayer, the choirs sang the following anthem, " Zadock the Priest," & c. During this anthem, the King was disrobed of his crimson robes by the Deputy Lord Great Chamberlain, who delivered them to the Master of the Robes ; and his Majesty taking off his cap of state, the Deputy Lord Great Chamberlain delivered the same to the Lord Chamberlain ; and the robes and cap were immediately carried into St. Edward's Chapel, the robes by the Groom of the Robes, the cap by the Officer of the Jewel- office.

THE INVESTING WITH the SUPEIITUNICA. The Dean of Westminster then received from the of- After which his Majesty, attended as before, descended into the area, and passed through the door on the south side of the altar, into St. Edward's chapel : and the Noblemen who had cariied the regalia received them from the Dean of Westminster as they passed by the altar. The King being come into the chapel, and standing before the altar, delivered the sceptres to the Archbishop, who laid them upon the altar. The rest of the regalia w ere delivered to the Dean, and laid by him on the altar. Then the King was disrobed of his royal robe of state, and arrayed in his royal lobe of purple velvet, by the Deputy Lord Great Chamberlain. The Archbishop delivered the sceptre with the cross gold cup; and the King having drank thereof, returned the gold cup to the Lord Mayor as his fee. The Mi lyor of Oxford, with the eight other Burgesses of that city, as Assistants to the Lord Mayor and citizens of London, as Assistants to the Chief Butler of England in the office of Butler, were conducted to his Majesty, preceded by the King's Cupbearer, and having presented to the King a bowl of wine, received the three maple cups for bis fee.

The Lord of the Barony of Bedford performed the office of Almoner ; and the office of chief Larderer was performed by the Deputy of the Earl of Abergavenny. Soon aftervvarcK at a quarter before eight o'clock, his Majesty, who appeared to have gained an increase of strength, and a large accession of spirits as the day ad- vanced, rose and left the Hall in the same state as he had entered it to the dinner. The company then began to separate ; many, however, kept for some time hoverin. into his right hand, and the orb into Ills left. The Dean round the tables, some eagerly catching the remains of the delivered the sceptre with the dove to the Nobleman who had before carried, and now bore it in the returning pro- cession. As soon as the King had gone into St. Edward's chapel, the officers of arms began to call over and arrange the pro- cession for the return to Westminster- hall ; and at the moment when his Majesty came out of the chapel, the procession moved forward ; except that the noblemen who, in tie former procession, ha 1 borne the gold spurs and St. Edward s staff, left in St. Edward's chapel, and the orb and the sceptre with the cross, borne by bis Ma- jesty, walked in their due places, according to their degrees in the peerage.

After this the Dean took the spurs from the altar,- and delivered them to the Deputy Lord Great Chamberlain, who, kneeling down, touched his Majesty's heels there- with, and returned them to the Dean, by whom they were laid upon the al* ar. THE SWORD. The Nobleman who carried the sword of state deliver- ed it to the Lord Chamberlain, and in return received another sword in a scabbard of purple velvet, which his Lordship delivered to the Archbishop, who laid it on the altar, and said the prayer, " Hear our prayers, O Lord, we beseech thee ; and so direct and support thy servant King George, who is now to be girt with this sword." The Archbishop, assisted by other Bishops, then de- livered the sword into the King's right hand, saying, 4 Receive this kingly sword," & c. His Majesty then standing up, the Deputy Lord Great Chamberlain girded his Majesty with the sword. The King being again seat- ed, the Archbishop repeated " Remember him of whom," & c. The ceremonies of offering the Sword, investing with the Mantle, the Orb, the Ring. & c. were then succes- sively performed. THE CROWNING. The Archbishop standing before the altar, and having St. Edward's crown before him, took the same into his hands, and consecrated and blessed it with the prayer. " O God, who crownest thy faithful servants with mercy," Sec. Then the Archbishop, assisted by other Bishops, came from the altar, the Dean of Westminster carrying the crown, and the Archbishop took and placed it on his Ma- | jesty's head ; while the people with loud and repeated | shouts, cried—" God save the King!" the trumpets \ sounding, the drums beating, and the Tower and Park ' guns firing by signal. The acclamation ceasing, the • Archbishop pronounced the exhortation, " Be strong and | of good courage." & c. Thechoirs then sung the following ! anthem, " The King shall rejoice in thy strength," & c. As soon as the King was crowned, the Peers put on their coronets, the Bishops their caps, and the Kings of Arms the crowns. THE HOLY BIBLE. The Dean then took the Holy Bible from the altar, and delivered it to the Archbishop, who, attended by the rest of the Bishops, presented it to the King, and said. " Our gracious King," & c.; the King returned the Bible to the Archbishop, who gave it to the Dean, which was I by him replaced on the altar. the Earl of Denbigh ; and those of the Assistant Carver by the Earl of Chichester.

THE KING.— We are extremely happy to say his Majesty was in the enjoyment of good health yesterday, | after the excessive fatigue which he underwent on Thurs- j| day at his coronation. A great number of anxious in- | quiries were made at his Palace. | On Tuesday his Majesty held an investiture of the j Order of the Thistle, when Lord Viscount Melville, the Earl of Cassillis, and the Earl of Lauderdale, were ore_ ated Knights of that order. This increases the num- ber from 12 to 1 5. CONSTITUTIONAL ASSOCIATION.— The London Grand Jury on Friday, found a true bill against Sir John Sewell. Charles Murray J. B. Sharp, and one Longueville Clarke, for a conspiracy, in forming an un- lawful Society, and for committing several alleged acts of intimidation and ex- Lortion Murray and Sharp are of course well known as active officers of this mischievous and officious Society. Clarke is, we conclude, a clerk in their employ, and all have been doubtless selected for the purpose of trying the question with the ostensible, though peihaps in themselves insignificant, agents of the Com- mittee. PROTEST OF IIEli MAJESTY AGAINST the DECISION OF THE PRIVY COUNCIL. CAROLINE R. TO THE KING'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY. THE PROTEST AND REMONSTRANCE OF CAROLINE, ( LUEETF- OP GREAT BRITAIN AND IRELAND. Your Majesty having been pleased to refer to your Privy Council the Queen's Memorial, claiming as of right 10 celebrate the ceremony of her Coronation on the 19th day of July, being the day appointc- d for the celebration of your Majesty's lioyal Coronation, and Lord Viscount Sidmouth, one of your Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State, having communicated to the Queen the judgment pronounced against her Majesty's claim ; in order to pre- serve her just rights, and those of her successors, and to prevent the said minute being in after times referred to as deriving validity from her Majesty's supposed acquies- cence in the determination therein expressed, the Queen feels it be her bounden duty to enter her most deliberate and solemn protest against the said determination ; and to ailirm and maintain, that by the laws, usages, and cus- toms of this realm, from time immemorial, the Queen Consort ought of right to be crowned at the same time with the King's Majesty. In support of this claim of right her Majesty's Law Officers have proved before the said Council, from the most ancient and authentic records, that Queen Consoits of this realm have, from time immemorial, participated in the ceremony of the Coronation with their royal husbands.

Iler Majesty returned tlfe following answer ;— " I am much obliged by this affectionate Address from the operative Sawyers of London, Westminster, Soutli- wark, and the Dock- yards upon the River Thames. " The late conspiracy against my honour and my peace was defeated: by the union of the people. The people for- got all their political differences while they were gene- rously defending a vilified woman, and a persecuted Queen. The bad passions were never more infuriated in one part of the community, nor the kind and better feel- ings more sublimed in another. The people should never cease to remember that the great victory which they then achieved, they achieved by union ; and that it is nothing but the most thorough and entire co- operation of men of all sects and parties, that ever can enable the best part of the nation to triumph over the worst; or the upright and patriotic to prevent their degradation by the profligate and corrupt. During the performance of the solemn Ceremo. nialon the 19th, I trust that the people will conduct them- selves with an order, a forbearance, and a moderation, that will completely falsify liie evW forebodings of their enemies. The best friends of liberty are always the most determined opponents of violence and confusion'. Anar- chy can profit none but oirfenemies. It is ( heir hope, but it is our fear ; it is our loss, but it is their < rain. " If the enemies of the people are crafty, let the people themselves be wise. Without wisdom, and withcrut virtue, which is a part of wisdom, liberty rs but a delusive show, or an intoxicating sound. While we pfefer realities to shadows, let us leave it to our enemies to mistake shadows for realities. The eternity of freedom does notcoftsiat in the pageant of a day.

Your Majesty's Council, however, without controverting any of the facts or reasons upon which the claim made on the part of her Majesty has been supported, have expressed a judgment in opposition to the existence of such right. But the Queen can place no confidence in that, judgment when she recollects that the principal individuals by whom it has been pronounced were formerly her successful defenders ; that their opinions have wavered with their interest, and that they have since become the most active and powerful of her persecutors ; still less can she confide in it, wnen her Majesty calls to mind that the leading members of that Council, when in the service of your Majesty's royal father, reported in the most solemn form, that documents reflecting upon her Majesty were satisfactorily disproved as to the most important parts, and that the remainder was undeserving of credit. Under this declared convic- tion, they strongly recommended to your Majesty's royal faiher to bestow his favour upon the Queen, then Princess ot Wales, though in opposition t.< v.., ir Majesty's declared wishes.

William Cum- , ming and wife, reset of theft— and Francis Wood, mur- i der. FRIDAY. Alexander Uro « n ami Hall Dick, for theft— John RobertsoW, swindling— John Douglas and Matthew Addie, highway robbery. Samuel Warren, auctioneer, from Glasgow, accused of reset of ibelt. The prisoner pleaded not guilty, and no objection being made to the relevancy, the 1' io'ccutor called a number of witnesses, who clearly proved the crime libelled. No evidence was offered in exculpation. The Jury were addressed briefly 011 the part of the Crown by the Lord Advocate, and by Mr. Dickson oh the part of the prisoner. Lord Ilermand recapitulated the evidence - and the- Jury, without retiring, returned a Una voce verdict, find'- mg the prisonei guiliy. Lord Piluiilly said this was one of th _ i worst eases of reset of theft he h. rd ever setrt come before the Court. They had often lamented the great increase ot' juvenile depravity in this country, and such persons as the prisoner were hot only answerable for their own crimes, bill for those of the boys whom they seduced by their temptations. It was the duty of the Court to stretch forth the arm ol the law to punish this person. It wus rece* sai* y that he should go out of this country ; but be roust not go out ^. f it in the ordinary- w^ y. He must be made a marked oxam]> K', tliat bis punishment might be a terror to e\ i! doers ; and ibis example should tnhde in the < rreat city wliere bis crime h id hee. h corhn itted. and where such crimes were unfortunately too prevalent. FFis lordship proposed, therefore, that the prisoner should be rent back to Glasgow jail, and front thence, on a maikft day. be brought forth to tbe public, W « t1v a label on his back, declaring ti is crime to be reset of theft from young persons ; and in this manner be led through! the street ® , r> ilow » > d by the common executioner. That he should then be transported beyodn seas for the period of 11 years. Lord Meadowbank < bncurrcd in all the observations which bid. been ihade bv Lord Pitmilly, and in the tneasufc of puHif. hment proposed ; sentence to that effect was accordingly pronounced, after an impressive admoni- tion To the prisoner bv Lord hermand.

John Ronnie and William Sutherland was put to'thehar. accused of tbree separate acts of house- breaking ami theft, and also bcrn< j habit and repute thieves. Thev were found guilty, and Lord Gillies, pre- viously to passing the awful sentence, earnestly advised the prisoners to prepare for the fate which awaited them, as their ease was not one which the Court could recom- mend to fhe Seat, of Mercy for an alteration of the sen- tence. which bis Lordship pronounced, ordaining them for execution on the 22d of August next. The other prisoners were all found guilty, and sen- tenced to transportation for different periods. Tliurday. being the day appointed for his Majcfy's Coronation, t! ve royal standard was hoisted on the Castle won after six o'clock in tbe morning, previous to which an immense number of colours were displayed on the j walls and buildings, which, from the fineness of th* 1 morn- ing. bad a beautiful effect. Three flags were fixed on the turret above the regalia room, ami a number on the same building, which, viewed from the High Street, were very striking. At 11 o'clock the Fourth Dragoon Guards took post at the head of he Mound, and soon after the whole of the t& oops formed in the following order;— The 41 st Regi- ment. on the right, extended along the road at the back of the Bank of Scotland ; } the Royal Edinburgh Volun- teers on tfjo Castle Bank and Ramsay Garden's, with the Rifle Company on the left: the Dragoons in tbe centre ; the Leith Rifle Corps were stationed in the inclosed ground to the west of the Rank, and the Yeomanry in two divi- sions in Prince's Street. A salute of 21 guns was fired from the Castle, after every seven of which a feu- de- joie was fired by the line, and on a signal gun from the Castle the whole gave three hearty cheers. A few minutes before 11 re feu- de- joie a balloon ascended majestically to a great elevation, passing directly along the line of the Mound. The Illumination may be said to have gone off veil.. In not a few instance, indeed, the windows rather seemed to apologise for what was intended than to accomplish it. This was observable even in the f ashionable paitsof the town ; and was marked enough in most of the bv- streets. There were no symptoms of a re- joicing spirit pervading- the hearts of the neople ; bat there were every where sufficient proofs of a disposition to com- ply with the recommendation of the Magistracy, and to respect constitutional ceremony, though it took place uryJer an administration which in many of its acts, is con- sidered unconstitutional. Every body, also, seemed to be in good humour, willing to enjoy the spectacle, such as it was : and, with respect to most of the public offices, it was rather gorgeous. The desire in all thece instances to make most of the occasion was abundantly conspicuous. *" The Hon. Thomas Bowes, who, by the recent decision of the Committee of Privileges, has become Earl of Strath- more, has taken possession of the estates attached to the earldom Wednesday the Lord Advocate received a warrant from Itis Majesty, declaring his Royal pleasure to extend his grace and mercy to 51 persons against whom true bills for high treason were found, before the Court's of Oyer and Terminer, held in Scotland last year, but who were not brought to trial owing to their having absconded. Im- mediate orders were, in consequence, given that such of these persons as have been taken into custody should be liberated in the course of Thursday, being that fixed for Ms Majesty's coronation, and all proceedings against the others lujve been ordered to be discharged.

OUR readers will lie batppv to learn, that tlie Coronation passed over on tiie 19th without any serious misfortune or accident, and as a pageant of of pompons show has not, we believe, been sur- passed in England. Her Majesty, agreeably to the notice she sent to the Earl Marshal, presented herself with her attendants early in the day at the Abbey gates, but was refused admission. When the deafening shout was heard which announced her approach there was an immediate erv to shut the gates— and for a short time thev were actually shut, but were again soon opened, when it appeared, that the dvty of refuaieg admission to the first Subject of the Realm ultimately devolved tipon a poor Knight of Windsor, who, in the true spirit of chivalry, half drew his sword, and informed her Majesty, that he had peremptory orders not to allow her to pass. Upon this she smiled, and said to Lord IIOOD, that site considered the shew ofviolence quite enough, and retired amidst the shouts of the people, ller subsequent demand to be crowned bv herself was re- fused, Ujion the plea, that the 1' rivv Council had de- cided against Iter right; and preparations are made to:- his Majesty's departure for Ireland, while the Queen has declared her intention of immediately visiting Scotland. The indignities offered to the Queen upon this occasion have created a great sen- sation in England, nor is it to be wondered at, after every attempt to criminate her Majesty under co- lour of judicial proceedings had failed, that what must to the people appear an act of arbitrary injus- tice should excite great indignation. In fact, the Coronation appears to have been got up as much with the view of insulting the Queen as of doing ho- nour to the King ; for, at his time of life, the mere pageantry of a Coronation must be supposed a mat- ter of the greatest indifference. No disputed suc- cession rendered a public recognition of tire King's title requisite, it was undisputed, for no pretender to the Throne of these kingdoms has been in existence for more than thirty years, and no other plausible reason presents itself why, at such a period of public distress, an unmeaning and most expensive ceremony should be insisted upon, than that his Majesty's atlvisers having failed in their attempts to injure the Queen under colour oflaw, thought that something might yet be done under the sanction of the Roval will and pleasure. It remains to be seen what con- sequences are to follow upon this advice; and if her Majesty make good her promised visit to the North, we shall find the public opinion truly expressed in the reception she meets with. Enraged at the expression of public feeling called forth by the appearance of the QUEEN at the ceremony of the Coronation, her enemies would raise a clamour against her fur showing herself to the people upon that oct-. ision. This is a sufficient proof lhat the conduct of her MAIESTY was wise. Hut there are other and more weighty reasons, vhich must convince reflecting peisons that the QUEEN'S demand to be admitted into Westminster Abbey was a measure rendered necessary by her situation. K iUl expe- rience must luve long since Convinced her MAJESII that if ever si, c should lose the support of the people licr enemies will destroy her. The higher classes, identified with*' the Powers that be," by gratitude, and csjiectaucy, and fashion, have at one time meanly courted, and at another time basely betrayed her. But the disinterested and gene- rous people, uilder every change of circumstanccs, have re- mained devoted to her cause, and they, as was well known lo lu r M. VJLSVY, were solicitous that she should appear amongst ihuni at the Coronation, and on that solemn and memorable occasion, and in the presence of the KINO and of his assembled Nuhles, afford them an opportunity of ex- pressing their attachment lo her person, and ( heir detesta- tion of the illegal and Revolutionary measures which depriv- ed hefofher rights. And washer M> JKSTYto- disappoint the laudable wishes of her friends, in order to gratify the malignant passions of her enemies ? Had shedone this, she would, in truth, have been guilty of the absurdity with which Tin- Courier falsely charges her. Gratitude and prudenre alike required thai she should not on this trying occasion, withdraw herself from those who had been her safeguard during pa-:. and must be her shield through future dangers. If she shall ever lose the support of the people, those who could set up the John Hull would not hesitate to employ the dagger or the bowl. Having employed all the means in her power to main- tain her rights, and to prevent the I. aws and Constitution of the eoon'ry from being violated in her person, her MA- JESTY will retire wiih the consolation, that if she has not obtained success, she had deserved it. She w ill n » t seek to disturb her enemies in tiie enjoyment of the personal triumph, which they have obtained at. tbe expense of the monarchial principle; and we earnestly hope that her ok- clttsion from the Coronation will terminate the scries of revolutionaty measures which a corrupt and selfish faction has pursued against the legal paitner of he Throne. It is time that the agitation created bv those measures should be permitted to subside. We require repose— we want the leisure and the calm which are necessary to in- tpiire into our internal affairs, and to devise appropriate remedies for the multiplied evils which a protracted system of extravagance and misrule has inflicted on the country. A breathing- time— an interval of reflection between the present time and the next meeting of Parliament, may be attended with the most beneficial results. In moments of excitement the spirit of tbe times is shown ; but in intervals of repose the spirit of the times informed ; and knowledge, striking deeper, and spreading wider, increases the power of the people against the next occasion. Il is therefore, thatwewish our infatuated Ministers would cease* to agitate tire country. The state of the poor— the. state of trade— the state of agriculture— and, above all, the state of the Representation, demand our attention. To these great and vital questions the public mind will now direct its energies. The progress of truth is certain— the force of opinion irresistible. Let the friends of liberty rejoice in their strength, and glory 111 their inevitable triumph, for the time is already at our doors when reduced taxa- tion, a free trade, and a Reformed Parliament will ren- der England the happiest and most glorious country which the world ever saw.— Traveller. The certaintv that hostilities are about to take place between Russia and the Sublime Porte, and that the flame of war may very probably be again lighted all over Europe, has produced a considerable sensation on the Continent. Two Russian armies are now upon the confines of Turkey, while the Greeks have obtained several advantages bv sea, 1I19 grand Turkish squadron having been defeated with great loss, one ship of the line only having re- turned to Constantinople with the disastrous in- telligence. Our Ministers long affected to believe that Russia entertained 110 ambitious vie> vs 011 Turkev, and Lord LONDONDERRY lately declared j iu his place, his entire confidence in the magnani- mity of tbe Emperor ALeXANDER, who had dis- claimed all views of aggrandisement. Did not his Lordship recollect, that when, at the great Con- gress, he ventured to sav something concerning Poland, he was immediately snubbed hv the mag- nanimous ALEXANDER with the pithy observation— " Mi/ Lurt/, I have five hundred ihousnnd men in that country!" But England, itissaid, canuotlaok tamely on and see the balance of power completely destroyed ; hut what on England do under its pre- sent circumstances ? The effectual interposition of British power is impracticable, and the allied Poten- tates knowing that, will hold rcmoostrai ces and threats cheap indeed. Tho downful CV, is not to be regretted, but the occupation of Cons- tantinople by the R » suians, ami subjugation of the Turkish Empire, must confer upon Russia a [ rower absolutely uncontrollable. It is amusing, in such a state of things, to hear the effects mi our public stock quoted, as indications of the real state of things in Europe, as if a fall of two- thirds or three quarters, 011 what is intrinsically a mere bubble, which must break when delusion is at an end, de- served attention in the present state of the country. Assoon as time would allow the receipt of private Letters from Paris, we expected true accounts of tltc manner in w hich the French people had received the accounts of the death of NAPOI. F. ON, which, in the present degraded state of the French Press, could not possibly reach this country in print. Our readers wiil find, in another part of this paper, a Letter from Paris upon this subject, very interest-, ins indeed, and containing intelligence win h must trj ' on lie regarded as of a most portentous nature as it re- gards the Bourbons. That family has no real hold of the affections of the French people ; and to in- sult them, bv directing accounts of the death of NAPOLEON to be hawked about the streets for a sous, witha pretended confession, in which he is made to admit himself to have been guilty of crcrv possi- ble enormity, is not merely folly, it is downright insanity. Indeed, it seems not improbable, that such a measure as this, which implies such contempt | for the understandings of the people of France, may have been advised bv those who are but seeming friends of the imbecile Family now on the Throne of France ; unless we could suppose, that the terror of an impending and dreadful reaction had actually I dtprived them for the time of the exercise of their reasoning faculties. We shall not be at all surprized, to find an attempt made in this country to revive the calumnious falsehoods of the Revolutionary Plutarch, and LEWIS QOLDSMITII ; but to insult the French people, acquainted as they were with his real character and conduct, with such trash, must be a hazardous experiment indeed ! The stories con- cerning hereditary cancer are treated in France with the most consummate contempt ; and as we before anticipated, tbe information of ANTOmMARCHI, BERTRAND, and MOnThOLON, is the only testi- mony that will obtain credit with the French people, concerning the real circnmstances atteriding the death of NAPOLEON, who has lived and died the greatest Man of modern times. 2 2 3 3 2 2 ) I 4 4 5 BIRTHS — At Fraserfield, on the 14th instant, Mrs. | FORBES, ol a Son.

Tuesday, the Aberdeenshire Regiment of Militia, under the command of Lieut— Col. GORDON, of Cluny, com- pleted their period of training and exorcise for the present year. The steadiness of the Regiment and their rapid improvement in discipline, during the time they were embodied, were very striking ; and with one or two ex- ceptions, the conduct of the men was orderly and soldier- like. The Forfar and Kincardine Regiment of Militia, under the command of the Hon. Archibald Douglas, which had been assembled at Montrose for twenty- one days drill, returned to their respective homes on Tuesday last.— While in the field they went through the different military ma men v res with steadiness and precision, and their con- duct iu quarters was most exemplary.

On Thursday last, we had some very loud peals of thunder to the south westward, with vivid flashes of light- ning. followed hereby genial refreshing showers, but at a little distance with violent hail. The electric fluid struck into a field at Banchory, in this neighbourhood-, where, after furrowing up the ground, it kindled a cock of hay, which was entirely consumed. The great Cattle Market of Aikev Fair, on which much dependence was placed by the Farmer, was held on Wednesday last ; and we regret to state, proved lik « all others this season, extremely unfavourable. The greatest and finest Shew of Cattle known, it is believed, these fifty years, could not attract the few Dealers who were pre sent, there being almost no business done, and so very little the demgnd. that only two or three parcels were sold, at very reduced prices. On the 25th curt, being St. James* Day. the Annual General Meeting of St. James' Society was held here.— This Society was instituted in the year 1807, has now a Capital of upwards of Eleven Hundred Pounds ster. and less than Fifty Members whereby they are enabled to open their Funds, and to pay the decayed Members, and Widows and Orphans of Members. Annuities far superior to the generality of Benefit Societies. The following Gentlemen were elected Office- bearers, viz.: Mr. JOHN BOOTH, Jrx. PUESKS. Mr. JOHN CHALMERS, Vice' Treses.

On Saturday last, a band of rubbers, eight to ten in number, men and women, broke into a public house at Murcar, where there was only an ol< 1 man and woman in bed, when one of them, a man armed with a large blud- geon, with dreadful threats kept the poor people in bed, while other three fellows broke every lock in the house, chest, presses, Sec. rifling a pocket book of 10s — the woman's pocket of 5s. Gd— carrying off a quantity of whisky, tea, and sugar, and the old man's best coat.— Having thus accomplished their purpose, this desperate gang secured the old people in their bed, by placingagainst the door of it all the furniture in the room, so that an hour had elapsed before they could get out to give an alarm. It then appeared t hat, after drinking part of the whisky near the house, they rode off with a mare, which was nest day found at Belhelvie j as was the same day, thestolen coat in a park at Murcar : from which it is supposed the party the following very itnfavo; vr< A> 1e ncccun't of il^ e t!: at Fishery, received by Mr. A.

The sloop Field, Ov in stone, of Ely, from Beau'y to Newcastle, with timber, was towed into this Bay dismayed on Monday last, by a sloop belongingto Dundee, having tlVeday previous, in a strong gale from south eastward, ca'r'- ed away her mast, about 15 miles off this place, when it was- found necessary to cutaway all the sails and rig^ in^, for safety of the vessel. On Tuesday last, the Pilot, Law. prtsseS this place for Arbroath, after a passage of about 39days from Miramicbi- The same day, the Earl of Dalhousie, Livie, arrived here, from Quebec ; sailed on the 14th ulf. along with ther Mary Ann, Moore; left the Patriot.

It is confidently stated in tjie French and German Papers, that the Great Turkish fleet which had sailed a sho. ttime since from Constantinople to clear the passage of the Dardanelles of the Greek vessels which abound m those seas, was surrounded oil'the Isle of Mytiiene by the Greek squadron and totally defeated. ' Die Turkish fleet cous sted of two ships of the line, several frigates, and numerous smaller vessels. Of the ships of the line, one was burnt, and the other with difficulty escaped. Seven- teen other vessels fell into the power of the Greeks. The- Turks hu\ e finally raised the blockade of Joanniua, having lost two- thirds of their i' ree. His Majesty, it is understood, will embark on his. voyage to Ireland la about ten days. Captain Crokat, who was the bearer to Ministers of the tidings of the death of Bonaparte, at Sc. Helena, has. he* n, promoted to the rank of Major. It may be inferred from this, that his Maje ty's Government consider the death o£ Bonaparte as a national benefit. Major Gosscquen, Sir Hudson Lowe's Aide- dc- Camp, who superintended the Purveyor of Lpngwoo. i's department, has alio beeu pro- moted to the rank of Lieutenant- Colonel- The Marquis of Hertford, it is said, has resigned Us place of Lord Ciiauibet lain. It was extraordinaiy. we hope not ominous, that the noble Duke, wljo distinguished himself by pronouncing judgment against his Queen without hearing the evidence in her favour, she uld have been selected to bear theswoid of Merry befo/ e the King.

Her death is attributed to taking too much ii. udanum by mistake ; she had been sick fof several days previous to this unfortunate oceur- iGnCa.
