His Majesty ordered his'carriage lo slop whilst he received ( he congratulations of ( he authorities.- During this in- terval the garrison band played " God save the King." His Majesty immediately afterwards continued his route for Aix- la- Cbapelle, where he arrived the same evening. DRESDEN, Sept. 25.— A deputation, consisting of 24 members, waited ou the King to inform his Majesly of ( he installation of ( he Cortes. The King deciared his intention of opening the Session in person on the 2Sth, at 11 o'clock in the morning. VIENNA, Sept. 26. - The report of a visit from his Britannic Majesty is. received, and the middle of No- vember is the period fixed for his arrival, Great prepa- rations are making for ( he reception of his Majesty.

IIis Holiness interdicts any persons, under pain of excommunication, from becoming a member of that accursed society, affording any of them an asyluinvPr countenancing ( liem in any way whatever. london, Set. Letters from Perpignan, received on Thursday night, contain most distressing accounts of the ravage's of the yellow fever. In six days 267 deaths occurred at Bar- celona and Barcelonetta; and 642 new cases were then reported. The inhabitants of the latter place, in n fit of desperation, combined about three weeks ago and forced ( he military post, and thus introduced the fever into Barcelona. A similar attempt was made on the 26th ult. but the militia, alive to the fatal consequences, repulsed the assailants, when five vere killed ana eight wounded. The malignant character ef this dreadful scourge, baffies all the efforts of art, and lias extended its infec- tion to Tortosa, where the deaths have been very nume- rous, and also ( o other places in Spain. We trust the quarantine laws in this country will be strictly enforced on ( his occasion. There is no doubt lhat several English ships have received the infection on board: a small merchantman, the Eclipse, lately from Malaga to Mabon, was ordered to perform qua- rantine. All the crew, except one man and a boy, aied of the contagion. In the books at Lloyd's another case appeared of the approach of the danger to our own . shores. The Harriet has arrived at Milford from Ma- laga. bound to Liverpool, with fruit. A few days after leaving Malaga, the mate and one man died of a fever. At Milford, we understand, there is a quarantine sta- tion ; we have not yet learnt, but we hope the Harriet has been ordered thither. We understand that the Privy Council met on Wed- nesday, when the consideration of the quarantine laws, and the best melhod of giving them an effective opera- sion, came under the deliberations of the Council. At this particular crisis, Government is imperiously called upon to adopt a rigorous and unexceptionable policy, although private interests may he sacrificed, on an oc- fntWu nationally important. A correspondent Las pointed out the following anec- dote, as tending to show tb § degree in which just and liberal feeling has declined within three hundred years in Great Britain:— " When King William was pressed by his Ministers to discharge Sir George Rooke, on account of his continued opposition to their measures both in and out of Parlia- ment, he asked if they had any thing to object against him as an Admiral, in which case he assured them a Court of Inquiry should be instituted ; but being dumb on that head, he told them he would never discharge a brave and meritorious officer on account of his opinions on politics; at the same time declaring that the duties of a citizen and a member of Parliament were essen- tially different from that of an Admiral, and ought to be executed according to every man's conscience, without the imputation of being disaffected."

Ilcr next visit will be to Bath, to attend the Grand Festival for ( he 22d instant, and following days, being positively the last time of her ever singing in that city. Sir C. W. Bampfylde, and oilier distinguished amateur performers, have offered their eminent services iu the orchestra ou the occasion. Incled/ m.— Charles Incledon has now finally retired from the stage- He is living at Brighton, in comfort and respectability, upon the fruits of what he has realised, and his wife's income. The former is not a great deal, for Incledon was always open- handed and liberal; and, besides, with a degree of generosity which we think unique, he always gave up all he pos< cssed to the children of the late mairiage whenever he contracted a new one. He lias been married three times. By his retirement is extinguished what we boldly term the finest male voice that the history of music has upon record. Exceeding, in many degrees, all others in power, splendour, and extent, it was at the same time eruuisitely sweet, and possessed, a peculiarity of ( one which distinguished it from all otliers, and can never be forgotten by those who> - as wc did, heard it in its glory. — York Herald. • First General Meeting of the Cheshire Whig Club. . Tuesday Inst, being the day appointed for the first General Meeting of the Cheshire Whig Club, the public attention was considerably excited, and in the course of the day a number of the members from variouspaitsof the county arrived at Chester, in their several carriages, their equipages and liveries making a handsome appearance. About four o'clock they assembled at the Royal Hotel, where the dinner was in preparation, and proceeded'to transact the business of the society, of which it is unnecessary to give many particulars. It was. however, agreed, ( lint as ( be club Wis tow decidedly established, and more than 130 persons enrolled, the period had arrived when the limits prescribed to the committee for the admission of new members might, with propriety, be enlarged; nml as several gentlemen of the neighbouring counties had fell a delicacy in applying for admission, in consequence of the title of the society appearing to apply only to one county, it was resolved, that in future the Club should be denominnted " The Whig Club of Cheshire and the adjacent counties." It was nlsoagreed that Earl Grosvenor should be requested to preside at the next anniversary; a request to which his Lordship, who was present, very kindly acceded. Mr. Swanwick acted as secretary. .- At half- past five o'clock dinner'wns announced; and the gentlemen, about 100 in number, were ushered into the elegant Assembly room of the Hotel, where a sumptuous entertainment was provided by Mr. Willoughby, consisting of substantial and luxurious dishes, served op in the finest style, and succeeded by an abundance of game, venison, A- e. which gave the highest satisfaction. About forty waiters, chiefly the liveried servants of the individualsnresent, contributed to the fgcilitiraof the festive i. lord Crewe presided, supported by Lord Grosvenor and Lord Anson; near whom we . perceived Sir John Stanley, Sir Henry Bunbury, the Honourable R. Grosvenor, and other distinguished individuals. Mr'. Wilbraham, of Delamere, offi- ciated as vice- president, assisted by Mr. Davenport, of Culveley. The room, which was very spacious and neatly decorated, together with the brilliant chandeliirs, well furnished tables, the ball- rooms sofas, Ac. presented aa unusully handsome " tout ensemble." After ( he cloth was drawn " Non nobis. Domine" was sung by professional glee singers from Liverpool, who, during the evening, gave a variety of glees and songs : several other gentlemen also contributed to the vocal harmony of the party.— The tables having been covered with a vast profusion of fruits and wines, the following toasts were given : — The King. The Royal Family, and the principles which seated their ancestors upon the throne of these realms. Civil and Religious Liberty all over the world. The Whigs of the Empire. Trial by Jury. The Freedom of the Press ( very great applause). The Immortal Memory of Charles James Fox. Lord Grosvenor, and thanks to him for accepting the apjJbint- ment as Chairmnn of the next Anniversary. His Lordship, nfter returning thanks, commented on the necessity which existed for the formation o( the Whig Club, not for locul party purposes, but for the cherishing of those consti- tutional principles which were rendered conspicuous at the re- volution of 1688; principles - which- he- hoped would ere long apima[ e every British heart. He should be sorry to see any ad- ministration formed in this country upon any other principles, and he thonght, from the manner in which the preceding toasts had been received, that the meeting participated in his senti- ment. For bis own part, although he bad made some efforts for the abolition of useless places and pensions, he had been un- successful, but he hoped a day would come when the gTeat ob- ject of public economy would be successfully appreciated. It was peculiarly requisite at the present moment; and, although ministers seemed at lost rather anxious to adopt it, they began at the wrong end, by reducing smnll salaries instead of large sinecures. But there was another most important subject which demanded attention. It was reform; without which he felt assured the country would never experience that prosperity which he hoped yet to witness. He was glad that one step to- wards it, so far as to recognise an important principle, had been taken in the case of Grampound ; but something further was re- quisite ( although he would not now be minute as lo the proper extent of reform) and it was much to be wished that measures bad been adopted in all similar cases in favour of the enfran- chisement of such places as Leeds, Birmingham, and other towns. Parliament should undoubtedly be shortened by the re- peal of the Septennial Bill. They were told that the Whigs originated that bill; but they did so as a temporary measure in support of the Brunswicks and the new order of things, against the machination*, not religious merely, but civil, of the tyrannical Siuarls. But the Torjes availed themselves of xbat temporary act for the perpetuation of their system of misrule, still designating it a Whig measure, notwithstanding the fact that every Whig in the country wns favourable to its repeal. Had the principles of WhiggiSm been acted upon since their successful developement in 1688, we should not have witnessed ( he lamentable inroads which have been made upon the liberties of the people, the suspension of the Habeas Corpus Act, the Six Bills so restrictive of our rights and especially of the freedom of the Press, the persecution of an unfortunate and lamented Queen, or other recent and dangerous occurrences. But he j hoped those principles would yet be resorted to. The present as- . sociation might greatly contribute to that end ; and before he 1 concluded he would b? g leave to address a few words of advice 1 to the younger pari of the gentlemen around biro. He trusted | they would adopt the principles of liberty from conviction, and never change thein but frorti conviction. If they ever abandoned them from views of interest, or from subserviency to the in- fluence of power, however they might hope to disguise ( heir motives, the world would perceive the truth ; and he thought the loss of character, as to political integrity, a loss sufficiently great to warrant his putting his younger henrers on their guard. [ His Lordship sat down amidst great applause.] Lord Crewe, our worthy President. This icast was proposed by Mr. Wilbraham, who eloquently- eulogised the venerable nobleman as an honest man and an ac- complished gentleman, whose patriotism had ever been con- spicuous whether in strenuously opposing ( he unnatural war with America, or the oppressive taxation that followed that event. He had been the personal and political friend of Mr. Fox, and was firmly attached lo the liberties of the people. Lord Crewe returned thanks, and said he certululy had op- posed the American war ; he considered that war as the source of almost all the evils which the country had since experienced; and he bad the satisfaction to say, ibai however the people were oppressed by the public burdens, he could lay his head on bis pillow with the consciousness that he had never contributed in any degree to the weight of ihose burdens. Admiral Tollemache. Mr. Hume. In proposing this toast, the noble Chairman expressed a wish thnt the freeholders of the country would send such men as Mr. Hume to Parliament, instead of tllose whose subserviency to the will of the ministry Was so disgracefully conspicuous, par- ticularly on the occasion of the Malt Tax question being dis- cussed, when, ufter u majority had voted for its repeal, the ministers who told the majority not to hollo before they were out of ( be wood, brought up their forces the next dny and re- scinded that vole. They, however, conceded the repeal oflbe Agricultural Horse Tax ; a mere humbug not amounting to one per cent, of our burdens. If they wished to relieve agriculture let them give up the Salt Tax, which compelled a farmer keep- ing forty cows to pay 20s. per week instead of abou tfld. Sir Henry Bunbury, and the Whigs of Suffolk. Sir Henry returned thanks. He was but a stranger amongst them, but he always looked with interest to the proceedings of the county in which bisoncestors had resided during six or s. ven centuries, and he had great pleasure in witnessing so respecta- ble u meeting as the present, for the support of those principles, which it should ever be bis price to profess and maintain. The Cheshire Whig Club, and success to it. In introducing this toast the Vice Chairman dilated upon the views of the club, in constitutionally opposing the arbitrary con- duct of Ministers, who had plunged ihe country into distress, and in cherishing the purest principles of our ancestors who bad declared that Parliament should be frequent and Eleotions free, without which, no system could be established capnole of com- manding Ihe respect and obedience of the people. The con- stitution which the Wbigs advocated, und which they sought to restore to its purity by Parliamentary Reform, was as different from the constitution which the Tories lauded, when it suited their purpose, as - ros the Ailsome adulation of which they had recently heard so much, from that genuine loyalty which ani- mated the Whigs and the people in general. They respected the prerogatives of the Crown and the privileges of the Peers, because they hjid been established for the good of tiio people ; but they would strenuously advocate the rights of the people, whose freedom and prosperity was the object of all good go- vernments. Mr. G. Phillips, M. P. returned thanks. The establishment of sitLb a rallying point as the Whig Club was highly praise- worthy, especially in a neighborhood were many timid persens had associated the ideas of liberty with those of alarm. It was certainly possible that large bodies of men might seek redress for their grievances by means which would rather increase than diminish those grievances; but the good sense of ihe people would prevent any long career of error, and it was his lirm opinion, thai nil the fears and terrors which had been purposely excited, were utterly groundless. Recent proceedings in Par- liament demanded the liveliest attention of the people, and he more and more raw the necessity of Lord John Russell's advice, thafuien in power should avoid tyrannical measures, and the people practise moderatiop. Lord Anson, and the Whigs of Staffordshire. Lord Anson returned tlinnks. Ttie present important meeting 1 rendered this a glorious day for the county or Chester, and ift the example now set were followed throughout the kingdom, Ministers must soon seo that the principles of 1688 were not extinct in British bosoms. Those principles, if the Whigs and the people united, would check the measures of ministers, and cfTect the most salutary changes. If the Whigs took their proper stand, the people would naturally look up to them, and not to any turbulent and fadtious pnrtifeS, and would becomo irresistible. Colonel Hughes, Mr. Madox, Mr. Williams, and all our In- dependent Brethren in Wales. Lieut. Col. Hughes returned thanks ( in tho udavoidable ab- sence of Col. H-.) Tho Noble Lords and Gentlemen " who pre- ceded him, had left him no occasion to give reasons for his presence there, further thnn to say lie considered the principles of Whiggism to be those sound English principles, which were diametrically opposed to the Toryism of divine right and passive obedience. He had been asked why he, as a soldier, took any luterest in politics ; just as if, being a soldier, the Habeas Corpus Act, the trial by Jury, and other safeguards of our liberties were of no importance to him : but he would say that, in pro- portion as it was his duty to submit, in a military capacity, to the doctrines of passive obedience and non- resistance, he fell himself bound, as a citizen, to promote the rights and. liberties df his fellow subjects. May the Commons' House of Parliament be the REAL repre- sentative of the people of England. The Memory of Lords Somers and Delaware, who- supported the Revolution of 1688. Sir John Thomas Stanley, and the Independence of the County. Sir J. T. Stabley returned thanks. He had lately kept aloof front politics, t> n! frora hi. 7o., tb upwards l,„ lind always nd- been in- sulted and despised— it bad been united with every thing licen- tious and vile— by demagogues and designing knaves. He toped that an example was this day set which would confound their adversaries, and shew them ( hat ihe Whigs were not inferior to any in point of loyalty, property, birth, and respecta- bility. He was yesterday coming to this dinner, when he was met by a Tory, who said, " I know where you are going to- you aie going to fan the dying embers of Whiggism." Yes he was come to fan the sparks of Whiggism, which he hoped would again bluze out as they did in the days of Anno and the two first Georges. - Applause-" I thank you, gentlemen, this is the blaze 1 wished to shine forth." This was the spirit that would serve as a rallying point. They would now walk the streets uninsulted and uninterrupted. Who had dared to chal- lenge the Whigs as dissaffected ? The Whigs disaffected ! To whom? Their disaffection was to the Stuarts and their prin- ciples, nnd it wns they lhat, in defiance of the Tory facticn ( for faction be would call theln) had dared to advance the liberties of England, and to piece them on a sure Tooting, by calling tho present Royal Family to the throne. Some of that familv were perhaps ungrateful to the Whigs, but the day was coming when tbe Whigs would be proved to he the best advisers of tho King nnd tbe best friends of tbe people. The Committee ol the Club. Mr. E. Davenport thanked ihe company oa behalf of tbe Committee, and detailed their motives uDd operations. He trusted that the Noble Lords who bail this dny honoured them with their company, and who bad last year fought their battles and encountered, in theircause, tbe insolence of their opponents,' were by this time convinced that, what he would venture to call their martyrdom, had been attended with at least some beneficial consequences. But they should give the thanks where tbey were most due; it was to the Tories that they were in- debted for the pleasure, and ( he county for the honour of this dny. He invited them, therefore, lo let any feelings of indig. nation excited by the outrages of the famous Norwich meeting subside in the pleasing nnd grateful recollection of this one solitary service, this insulated b° nefit, which they, iu their pre- destination to blunder, had involuntarily conferred upon their country. There had hitherto been much prejudice arainst be- longing to u party, as ir parly was something criminal, or as if men who associated disinterestedly, as they did, for the good of the country, wero less respectable than those who, for the lasi fifty years, had united for the purpose of dividing nmong them- selves the honours, profits, nnd patronage of the stnte. Such nonsense ns this prejudice against party reminded bim of the saying of " a great man now no more," who flourished upon tbe public purse; he meant Jonathan Wild, who, when he was going to be banged, declared, with all tbe dignity of conscious innocence, that be bad fallen a victim 10 a party of twelve men, whose verdict hud doomed him 10 destruction ! Objections to Parliamentary Reform had been started on the gronnd that tbe Hdrvcnic* of tar measure were no) agreed upon a jolnn. When ever Ministers were threatened with the dreaded subject of Ite- form, they brought forward their heavy artillery in the shape of the Right Hon. Member for Liverpool, who, in reply to all tbe unanswerable arguments in its favour was certain to dis- charge this his usual subterfuge, " Gentlemen, as you are not agreed among yourselves upon the precise quantity of the ar- ticle you ask for, not nn ounce shall you have from our shop he wns like a man asked for charity, who should put his hand in his pocket, pretending tolisten to snme asking for more, others for less, and then suddenly tnrning round and saying, I will not give you a furihing becaustfypu have neglected to come to a previous egreement upon the precise minimum of quantity necessary lo save you from starvation. Tbe Cheshire Whig Club were ready to receive whatever was conceded in remedying tbe evils of which they complained, yet if the remedy granted proved insufficient for the complaint, they asserted their right to refer lo history and first principles; and to examine the original contract which connected them with the reigning family. ( Here Mr. D. commented on the mischiefs arising from placemen voting in Parliament, enrrying measures favourable to Iheir own interested views, which, but for them, would be frequently negatived.) Short Parliaments were recognised " by our best statutes, and it was well known ( hat the honesty of Parliament bore an inverse rutio with its duration ; for, in fact any incret sed infusion of conscience into the votes of our re- presentatives might be regarded, like the singing of swans, as a token of speedy dissolmion. The Cheshire. Whig Club had " resolved to foster aud maintain" principles which, it tbey meant any thing, were a virtual recogaition of a safe and con- stitutional Reform. And what did that term signify but mend- ing what was amissT— Why then then should we be ashamed of Ihe term, when the idea and the synonime were universally admitted T Let them not imitate those political drones who were always complaining but never acting; whose constant reply,' whenever they were invited to desist in denouncing in- justice, or any other grievance, wn^ always—" I cannot go at length." What would be thought of'n man who on seeing bis friend up to the neck in a ditch, wus to begin a compassionate sermon upon his cuse ; and on being invited to substitute a little more substantial aid, were to say " I am truly sorry, it was not I who sent you there ; you buve my heartfelt conimiseru tion, but as to helping you out— why— I cannot go that length, and for this reason, ( Jiat on tbe other side the road there is another ditch, which may be as deep us the one yoii have fathomed, and into which you might possibly fall." Absurd as such logic might appear, it was precisely analogous to thnt used by Ihe non- reforming Whigs. He was not for killing these drones ( as the bees did) but rather tbun increase the Club's numbers at tbe expense of its efficiency, by such recruits, be would willingly give them crowns for convoy to stny uway. With respect to Annual Parliaments nnd Universal Suffrage, ho might conlfilen^ y assert thai noi one man ill the room fnvoured those doctrines, which it would be consequently super- fluous to discuss or disclaim. As to ( he object of those who bad brought them together this dny, he conld solemnly declare, dm which of himself he knew, Hnd of others he bel evod, tb* t tbey had been actuated by no one sordid, selfish, or even aggres- sive motive. Their principal object was to breathe tbe uir of local independence; and the magnitude nnd respectability of the present meeting was a pretty safe guarantee against future molestation. The general utility of such meetings he considered us twofold:- 1st, ns they acted directly as a check to bad government; und, secondly, ns they ssrved to direct populur opiniou: for it was reasonable to suppose that when men saw tbeir natural guardians occupying the post assigned them, an 1 asserting their rights, they would show confidence, nnd leave all initiative measure* to them. But in order to inspire confi- dence in others tbey must be consistent wiih themselves, net up to their professions, ond not refuse the inductions drawn from their fundamental resolutions, which inductions be asserted lo be the wish for a safe, efficient, and constitutional Reform. Mr. Coke, of Norfolk. Mr. Counsellor Williams. Mr. Williams returned thanks. He considered thn present as an auspicious dny, not only for the conuly, but for tne kiuudom at large. He wus not aware upon what ground be had been honoured by being noticed, except it was supposed thut he did his duly in a profession, which though honourable in itself, was nut oversteoked withthkcoinnioJiiywiUeiiudependence. There were, however, occasionally, characters who preserved its re- putation, nnd seemed to lift up Ih? profession after them, as if it were a burthen upon their shoulders. There had been Ash- burtons, Camdens, nnd Romillies; nnd there were, now living, men who showed that the piofe^ sion was not naturally senile ; bul some influence was ni work lo render it as much so as possible. It was indeed snid, ihat lawyers should huvc no politics; as if they weretoslnnd with tiieir hand.; extended and i petuoted. Even as it was, such were the encroachments made upon the constitution, ihnt our ancestors, if they could rise from the dead, would shudder at finding that 180 individuals re turned 350 members to the House of Commons; being, in fact, a majority of the whole House. He wished our illustrious peerage ever to preserve their privileges; but be would main- tain that ihe people, the majesty of tHe; p* ople, should not be neglected. The right of representation should be fully re- cognised as the basis or crtir Governirthit. The County of Chester bad in old times felt the evil of being taxed without represented, and by a powerful petition obtained its rights.. It was the case also with Wales; for when that province became united under the legislature of England, representation was given not to Snowdon, to Cader Idris, or to the goats upon those mountains, but to menj taxed men. Durham also was admitted to representation upon tie same grounds; and that county now elected one whom he wns proud ; o call his Hon. Friend ( Mr. Lumbton) whose efforts for Reform he should he proud to seco: id, if he bad a seat in the Honourable House. That House ought to be the real and not the virtual representa- tion of the people. Reformers were charged with innovation ; but be denied the charge— the theory of tbe constitution denied it; for it recognised the representation of the people, and it was proved by the fact that decay, and decay alone, had caused the present disproportion in the elective franchise. This be would maintain in defiance of tho hypocritical sophistry and contra- band commentaries of interested men; his own disinterestedness he need not profe. ss, for those who had known tbe map of Eng- land for the last thirty years must be convinced that popular principles, or popular prepossessions, were not the roads to pro- fitable honours.

Mr. Tollett and Mr. Sudworth, and success to tbe Plough and the Pail. Mr. Tollett returned thanks, and commented ably on the vital imporlance of agriculture, which, in ibis country, should be coupled with independence. Bui he could not avoid saying, that the apntby of tbe country gentlemen hnd been the cause of all our political mischiefs; the people naturally looked to them, and tbey should defend the rights of the people. Instead of this, they left every thing, good or bad, to those in power, relying implicitly on the wisdom of their forefathers, and on heaven- born ministers. They were very fond indeed of heaven- lorn ministers, every thing was right which they did; whether in fighting ngoinst liberty on the other side of the Atlantic, or in- stituting expensive wars against France; nay, if more recently they had waged war about a few cat- skins in tbe wild regions of North America, they would have thought it right still. He hoped, however, they were awakening to a senseoftheir duties ; and he would exhort them, where they bad the power, lo return honest men to Parliament. If only fifty- two men had been sent from the fifty- two counties, determined advocates of liberty and economy, they might, by honorable perseverance, have saved the country from its present lomentnble- stnteof distress. Mr. Sudworth also briefly returned thanks. May the County of Chester be as rich in honest principle as in valuable- produce. May tbe example of ( he Cheshire Whig Club be followed' throughout the Empire. Lord Erskine. Hon. H. G. Bennet. May the Bill of Rights and the Act of Settlement be tbe stan- dard of our principles, until something better be poiRted out to us. Mr. Counsellor Cottingham. Mr. C. returned thanks, assuring the company that he vene- rated tbe principles which he had heard avowed in the present meeting, and should continue to cherish them to the latest period of his existence. Tbe perfect union of the People with the Whig Aristocracy of the country. The Rev. Mr. Lyons, in proposing this toast, said he did so as an ardent friend of freedom. The Whigs must perceive thai without the people's support they could accomplish no good, either in or out of Parliament; ond he thought tbe experience of the last few years must convince the people, ihat ihey could not effect their restoration to. liberty and prosperity without the co- operation of the talents, the wealth, and influence of the Wbigs. By union, and union alone, could they obtain a redress of their grleroucea. Mr. Lambton, and success to his motion for Reform. Mr. Roscoe. Abont ten o'clock Lord Grosve- nor and several friends retired from the room. At eleven Lord Crewe took bis leave of the company, declaring tbat he had spent with them one of tbe hap- piest evenings of bis life. He retired amidst reiterated applanfe. Mr. Davenport wns thea called to the Chair, and about midnight tbe company separated, fraught with elevated feelings, sober mirth, and puiriolio sentiment; all delighted with " the feast of reason and the flow of soul."

M. T begs to inform the Public, thnt it is not Transparency, or a flat Picture, but a real IMITATION of NATURE.— Each Piece is animated by a variety of JFffluvcg, Carriages, parses, 9nfmaTs. And the various movements, executed by the power of Mechanism, are so natural as to strike the spectator with astonishment. Tbe labour which M.

Monday dispatches were received at Carlton Palace, dated from Dusseldorff, where his Majesty arrived on Thursday, the 4th Inst., in perfect health. His Majesty was to set off on Friday for Hanover. Every where his reception has been en- thusiastic. Extract of a letter from Hanover, dated September 25 :— " The Castle of Herrenhauson, situated near ourctty, has been ojmngvd In a Myu Siting to r>' Delve our Sorwilgn, and the load lending to it has been furnished with lamps. " It is affirmed, that our States will be convoked immedi- ately after the arrival of the King, and that bis Majesty will make n proposition, tCDding to relieve the country from the burthen of maintaining an armed force » dlsproportloned to its resources. To attain this end, there is n rumour of employing 15,000 Hanoverians to form the garrisons of Malta, Corfu, and the Ionian Islands; they will be paid by Great Britain. It was by a similar measure that in the war of America the Ha noverinns fought under the English floj." The following account of the " hair breadth" escapes of his Majesty on his late aquatic excursions, first appeared In a paper called '* The John Bull." We copy It, divesting it of the fulsome parenthetical rematks of the writer, and leave our readers to judge of tbe veracity ol that statement, which concludes by de- claring a French fishing boat, ( having the King on board) Striking " three times on the bar" and a " heavy sea" rolling furiously, and yet, landing its pnssenger* safely !! " When the yacht was endeavouring to double the Land's End ( on the return from Ireland) the weather was terrific; It blew a hurricane, and seemed setting in. Sir Chas. Paget told the King that he would not be answerable for the consequences of persevering. His Majesty said, " Paget, do nothing but what is right; net as you would do if I were not here." In altering the course to run for Millonl, a thick fog c. ime on, ond it was impossible to see a ship's length ; the gale increased, nnd Sir Charles, naturally anxious In having such ii djafge ns the King, agailn felt it his duty to state tbe danger in which be thought the vessel. His Majesty received tho communication with tho greatest coolness, and again desired him not to think about him. Still the wheather grew worse, and while the yacht was under bare poles, or nearly so, n set struck her wheel, nnd unshipped her tiller ropes; to any person acquainted with nautical matters this occurrencc, in a storm, needs no remark; and Sir Charles felt it his duty ( notable himself to quit the deck) to dispatch an Officer to report the accident lo the King. - " Tell Paget." said the Monarch, " that I am quite satisfied in having ns gallant and skilful Officers, and as active a crew e. s Europe can produce— for the rest we must rely upon Providence." Similar fortitude and presence of mind marked his Mntesty's conduct in his short excursion to Calais: when the yacht arrived off that port, it was blowing hard, with a heavy sea running, the waves rolling in struck her on the weather side, and dashed furiously over her quarter- deck. It was reported that as his Ma- jesty's barge was not arrived, and no means of ensuring a safe lan- ding were at hand, they must stand out to sea for the night. The King asked if there was no French boot; a French fishing- boat was dancing before the vacht at that moment; the people offered their services. Sir E. Nagle and Sir C. Paget ( both ex- perienced Nairn I Officer-) wished to deter his Majesty from going, but he cailcd to the Frenchmen in their own language, nnd asked them ifthey could carry hiin safe ashore; they affirmed that they could; upon which his Majesty, turned with n smile to hi; nau- tical attendants, said. " Come- I am quite sure you don't wind a ducking ;" acd instantly went down the side - the)- of course followed. " Tbe boot having got entangled in some ropes which were adrift, a sen completely washed Ihe whole crew.— Sir C. Paget, alarmed for the King, was about to seize the helm, when the King, touching his arm, sold—' Be quiet, my good friend, leave the Frenchmen to manage their own boat in their own way, and I'll be bound for them, they shall land us safe.'" They however struck three times on the bar, and were very nearly swamped. Friday dispatches were received announcing the arrival of hi* Majesty, in high health and spirits, at Hanover. He entered tbe citv al nine o'clock at nirfit, on Monday last. The town was oil life and splendour;" the streets were Illuminated, the mllitarv drawn out on duty, the guns fired, the liells nmg, and the population flocking from all sides toward* the barrier through which bis Majesty entered - nil appeared animated with the most loyal and affectionate enthusiasm. The Quakers.— The late Edinburgh Review, in tbe con- clusion of its article on the subject of " Capital Punishments," in speaking of tbe exertion of the Society of Friends observes - " The Quakers have taken a considerable interest in this ques- tion ; nnd to them we also, in a great measure, owe the abolition of the Slave Trade. They have been ridiculed, as a body, for cot lending themselves to this pomps and vanities of the world; but they devote themselves to prying inio and alleviating its evils. If v. u see one of item come into a Bookseller's shop, it is not to inquire for Campbell's Pleasures of Hope, or for Rogers's Pleasures of Memory ; but for Buxton on Prison Discipline, or or the last account of the State of the Gaol at Leicester. Ti es? are their delights their luxuries, and their refinements. They do not, indeed, add new grace to tbe Connthian capital of polished society; but they dig down into its dungeon- glooms and n0B° me « ' Do good bv stealth, and blush to find its lame." They bear the vote of tbe wretched, and lighten the burthen o • humanity - and they have, and will have, their reward." MEADOW LAND adjoining, by estimation three acres and half, occupied by Messrs.

Dated 0th October, 1821 sloth, and meanness. of men not free, he may be ini- ! l » elled to raise the latter from the kennel into which German notions and German oppression have plunged ( hem, an J place them In ( heir rank in the scale of nature. Every human being, who is not free, ought to be des- pised . is inferior to the Ounan Outang of the forest— as more degraded in his nature, and therefore beneath the uncivilized brute. Should his . Majesty discover tbe foiling of haired with which tlie political principles of his Ministers are erery where greeted, except by the minions of power, it may teach irira that the applause of the renal few is of much less importance than the esteem of nations. In his travels his Majesty may learn the folly, as well as the wickedness, of ( hose who, unfortu- nately for mankind, have poverned the affairs of Europe for the last thirty years: he may read a lesson which may incline hitn to disregard the false notions and hideous principles of Tories and Ultra- Royalists, who have sacrificed the wealth and the happiness of empires, covered their fields with human blood, desolated their cities, and employed myriads of mortals in the pleasing occupation of destructiou, to revive and give vigour to unjust pretensions, at war with justice and the welfare of society. If his Majesty return thus instructed, and his actions run in unison with his opinions, he will not be rewarded by the love and esteem of the passing day alone, hut posterity will embalm his memory as a bene- factor of the h'imau race. Such considerations may reconcile the most scrupulous to ( he advantage of such royal excursions; hut if our King should draw his conclusions from the notions of the base nnd slavish inmates of foreign courts, his travels will he in effect disastrous, nod his labour spent in vaiu.

THe ALFreD ' It is my duty to leave the People free as the thoughts of Man.' . EXETER, TUESDAY, Oct. 16, 1821. A delignlful account is given of the King's progress through the dominions of the Prussinn monarch, through roads almost impassable, in a condition so deplorable as to exercise his Majesty's patience at every step. This, among an hundred other things, will convince hiin of the folly, as well as wickedness, of despotism. If the personage who governs the Prussians by ( lie sword and the bayonet, and speuds their treasures in maintaining one hundred and fiftv thousand idle soldiers, of no use to the Slate, yet draining it of its wealth and wasting it in the wantonness of idleness, were lo form just notions of the advantage of good government, and the mischief of bad, he might be tempted to mend his ways, morally, politically, and physically. The Prussians themselves deserve no compassion if ( hey were obliged to travel from town to town through a slough, worse than the Slough of Despond ; if they were compelled to live in huts, worse than the wigwams of savages; if they were plundered, to the utmost extent, of Ihe fnrts of their labours, to enrich the worthless wretches who support the despotism that devours their vitals, they nchly deserve ibeir fate. To yieltl obedience to caprice, ( o lie governed by the will of one man, is sb degrading to human nature, that those who submit to sufcb misrule ought » o be considered as beyond Ihe hounds of pity, and lost ( o the feelings of man. Our King seeins ( o have been received with apparent zeal, on his journey, by the assembled crowds; but this, perhaps, may be justly attributed to his politeness and their civility, rather than to any regard of the continental people towards a Sove- reign, whom they consider as leagued with their monsters to destroy the just rights and liberties of man- kind. The poverty which his Majesty will perceive in his Hanoverian dominions may teach him ( he necessity of giving freedom to their inhabitants: he will see ( here ( hat man, the automaton of power, is a despicable being in comparison with the freeman, who despises power when unjust, and opposes tyranny that freezes humanitv. His Majesty'* visit to Ireland'may prove beneficia'l, because he is convinced that the Irish are loval, even to the heart's core; and, if he conclude that the rebellious insurrections and riols were the effects of the villainy of the petty tyrants who. in the name of the Constitution, have plundered the People, and under the mask of loyalty, have turned the arms of the Sovereign against his subjects, his travels will be productive of much good. Should his Majesty reason on the subject, it may induce him to crush the serpen( s which have poisoned the hap- piness of a nation committed to his care : it may teach him to doubt the loyalty of the courtier, and the zeal of the bigot; and, if this suspicion be eenerated, ( he journey has effected more towards the union of Kin- r and People, than all the corporation of Dublin, and ils ramifications, have done for a century to prevent this consummation so devoutly to b « Wished. This sojourn- ing with his German subjects may produce a similar effect, if his Majesty compare Britons wifh Hano- verUas: tf be set the wealth, industry, independence, and dignity of freemen, in opposite eo tHe poverty, The astonishing success that has attended M. Thio- don's beautiful exhibit ion is ( he most convincing proof of its real merit. In all who have had an opportunity of witnessing it tlie most enthusiastic admiration has been excited; and ( hose who may be so unfortunate as ( o let it pass unseen, will have ample cause for regret. The connoisseur in painting, the lover of nature in its most lively character, and the curious in mechanical ingenuity, cannot but feel highly gratified while viewing the pleasing scene. On Friday evening nex(, ( he per- formances will he by desire, and under Ihe patronage, of ( he Right Worshipful ( he Mayor of ( his city. We are sorry to observe that one improvement cannot be made in this city without the sacrifice of another. The common sewer lately made is assuredly most cs- senlial lo ( he comfort of ( he inhabitants; but, if we are to be deprived of water by the means of it, we may con- sider the advantage scarcely worth receiving. It appears that, in forming the sewer, considerable damage has been done to the water pipes, for which the Commis- sioners refuse the proprietor ( Mr. Golsworthy) the required remuneration. He has, therefore, sent nofice ( o many individuals, ( hat, after a certain day ho shall discontinue to supply them with water. Our opiuion is, that whatever, injury might be effected, should certainly be made good by" the parties concerned; otherwise we may go on improving ( as they call it) to the Day of Judgment— while mending one hole they make two. It is saitl, however, by some, that the Commissioners have offered a proper recompense ; but, as it embraced a condition with which Mr. G. would not comply— that of furnishing a written statement of the damage ( he wafer pipes have receired— we are to lose, between the both parties, the benefit of having in our houses an article so requisite for the preservation of health, and what is of general domestic utility. We hope those gentlemen will see the necessity of settling the diffe- rence that exists— it will be as creditable to them as bereficial to the inhabitants. We have much pleasure in announcing, that a nume- rous and very respectable Meeting was held on Wednes- day , ( be lOlli instant, at the Fortescue Arms, Barnsta- ple, for the purpose of promoting the interest of the Bible Society iu that town and neighbourhood. Lord Viscouut Ebrington, on being called . to Ihe chair, ex- pressed his decided conviction of the usefulness of ( he ! Bible Society, and ( he warm satisfaction with which he regarded its growing prosperity. The Rev. Dr. Stein- kopff, Foreign Secretary to tlie Parent Institution in Loudon, explained its object and constitution, and gave a sketch of the stupendous operations, . which, with its assistance, or under the influence of its example, arc carrying forward to promote the universal dissemination of ( lie Holy Scriptures. Earl Fortescue then rose and declared that, although he had at one period doubted the propriety of supporting the Institution, his doubts had long since been entirely removed. Ilis Lordship expressed his persuasion tliat no Society, formed on a less simple and comprehensive basis, could possibly ac- complish the great work of offering the Volume of Divi ne. Revelation ( othc people of every nation in their own language-, and that, while the Institulion was con- ducted wilh the fidelity which had hitherto marked ifs proceedings, no danger could possibly arise to ( lie Esta- blished Church, tu which he was conscientiously and warmly attached, from a Society whose only object was the circulation of ( he Bible. A resolution was unani- mously passed for establishing a Brunch Society for Barnstaple and its neighbourhood, in conuexion with tbe County Society and Exeter; and ( he regulations usual for such Institutionswcr£ adopted'* - Bourchior Palk Wrey, Esq. ( he Rev. Prebendary Thomas, Rev. B. Marshall, F. Gribble, C. Gribble , and I. Marshall, Esqrs. and several other genllemen took part in the proceedings; in the course of which the meeting was likewise addressed by the Rev. R. C. Dillon and the Rcv. l. W. Middlelon, who attended with Dr. Steinkopff, as a deputation from the British and Foreign Bible Society. These gentle- men Coin Bated, in a very able and satisfactory manner, the arguments by which the Society has been assailed. The limited space we can afford prevents us from giving even an outline of the Speeches which wcra delivered ; but we are happy to state, they made a very strong im- pression on the meeting, which was evinced by a liberal subscription at the close. Among the contributors to the new Society we notice, in addition ( o Ihe respected names already mentioned, those of Sir Thomas Dyke Acland, and Sir Arthur Chichester, Barts. On Monday last the annual meeting of the Tavistock Auxiliary Bible Society was held in the Guildhall of that town, C. Greaves. Esq. in the Chair. The report, pre- sented by Mr. J. Rundle, one of the secretaries, stated that the number of bibles and testaments, issued since • ( he last report was 3S5, and since lhe forma( ion of the society, nine years ago, 2155, aud the total amount re- J reived £ 903. The Meeting was addressed by the Rev. ' Dr. Steinkopff, and Messrs. Middleton and Dillon, the' deputation from the Parent Society, in speeches of j marked and varied excellence; able and impressive ad- j dresses were also delivered by the Rev. Messrs. Hooker : aud Whillans, Mr. Nicholls, of Beeralston, Messrs. W. Rundle, J. Rundle, and Flamank. The chairman , conducted the proceedings of the evening in a warm j and able manner; and the meeting, which will long be ! remembered iu Tavistock, for the pleasure which it gave lo those assembled, and ( he hopes of future benefit to the great cause ol" bible distribution which it excited, , closed by several additional subscriptions, aud a collec- tion superior to those on former occasions. The melancholy catastrophe, which we briefly noticed I last week, respecting tbe loss of the Clovelly boats, em- ! ployed in the herring fishery, proves to be of the most | appal line description. It " appears that those boats, , about sixty in number, were compelled, by the sndden j springing up of the dreadful gale of wind allndcd to. to relinquish their nels, in the hope of gaining the shore in ! safety; but unfortunately more than forty were driven | among ( lie rocks. The crie « of the drowning, thirty- five in number. moU of whom have left large families 1 produced au effect too heart- rending to bo adequately | expressed. Tbe distress occasioned to the families of tbe unhappy sufferers, who looked forward to ( he fishery j for their entire support, but who are now bereft of the meaus of subsistence, is most afflicting.— The Rev. Mr. Putt and Rev. Mr. Luxmore, tbea staying at C'ovelly. were particularly instrumental in saving the lives of many who, but for their humane exertions, must have inevitably perished ; and at their departure generously left £ 5, to be distributed amoDg those families who are now become utterly destitute. We are happy to observe : hat a subscription has been opened at Bideford for ( he relief of those who unfortunately suffer by this dreadful calamity. A meeting was held at the Guildhall, in Barnstaple, oa Friday last, for tue- purpose of raising a subscription for the relief of tbe unfortunate sufferersat Clovelly and the neighbourhood. It was most respectably attended by the inhabitants of the town and its vicinity, and a liberal subscription entered into. B: ft » re the close of ! the day nearly £ 200 was subscribed. We understand that tlrc Magistrates ( the Members of | the Association for the Protection of Game) who lately ! convicted Hugh Sloley, nt Barnstaple, in the penalty of ( £ 10 and costs, for having in his house two young hares, ! which were accidentally killed by his mower, have j thought it proper to re- hear his case, and reverse the i conviction: which, in all probability, the Conrt of l King's Bench would otherwise have done, j Sir John Kennaway's regiment of East Devon legion I[ Yeomanry Cavalry assembled al Honiton on Wednes- |! day, for eight days training. I last week, the servants of Mr. John Coles, of Lythe- | court Farm, about ( « o miles from Tiverton, discovered I a fine male infant, apparently about a week old, which had been deposited in a three- wheel put, standing in a lane leading to the house. The child was delivered to the parish officers, and in the course of the day baptized I by the name cf George Lythcourt. I At Torrington fair, on Wednesday last, there was a I, large shew of cittle, which met with a dull sale at || reduced prices. I! Last week, at Northtawton Michaelmas fair, Mr. Thomas Hooper, of Bow, purchased three milch cows, aud forty sheep, for eighteen pounds, sixteen shillings, and sixpence! ! Tavistock fair on Wednesday last was very full of cattle, and a great deal of business was done. The sel- lers complained that the prices offered "- ere low, but on a comparison with the prices given at other fairs of late, the buyers thought they were rather on the advance. Cows and calves sold well, and on the whole a great quantity of cattle were disposed of. At the said fair a young woman, named Monroe, one of those ladies not much celebrated for virtue, pickcd the pockets of a countryman of £ 63, and is brought here for trial at the present Sessions. 1,655 10 214,063 16 To the EDITOR of the alfred. Sir,— On my first visit to Exeter, my notice was attracted by tho singular appearance of the vanes fixed upon the steeples of seve- ral of its churches : one of the two points seemed like tbe letter C, for wbicb I could not possibly account; but, on inquiry, found thnt the north part of the Heavens was pointed out by ihe sun, iiiid the south by the moon: here again my Perplexity increased, for although the moon it frequently seen in the south, yet the sun bus ncrer yet been visible in the north ! Would it not, Sir, be more consonant with reason, and tbe usual practice in other parts of the kingdom, to assign the dominion of tbe uir to Boreas nnd Lis companions, and ienve the sun nnd tbe raoori to their respec- ivo situations in the Heavens, since singularity can only be de- fended when it possesses some peculiar advantages, or is war- ranted bya neurer approximation to truth t Yours, ( fee.

The Lord Bishop of Exeter has commenced his dis- tribution of church preferment in this county, in a manner which does equal honor to his head nnd heart. By the death of ( he rev. h. Pooley, the living of Newlyn, the first wc believe in this part of his dioceso that has fallen into the hands of tuc Bishop, became vacant, wbicb he has presented to the Rev. 11. Pol- whelc. To the attainments of this gentleman as a scholar, to his merits as au author and zealous defender of our excellent Church Establishment, the Bishop of Exeter could have been no stranger^ and of his charac- ter and ability as a clergyman, he could easily obtain the most accurate and satisfactory information. To his Lordship, who but lately expressed his determination to promote the interests of religion, by giving every encouragement iu his power to men of piety aud ability, these were strong points of recommendation ; and when to these considerations was added the care of a family of fourteen children, which wa believe the Rev. Gentleman has to maintain, the good Bishop not only gratified his feelings as a man, but evinced his judgment as a discriminating Prelate, by confeiring the favor upon ( his worthy clergyman in the most handsome and obliging way. On Tuesday last, according to annual custom, a court was held at the Town- Hall, Truro, at which the Mayor presided. It was ulso the usual lime for electing and swearing into oflicc the Mayor for the ensuing year ; but as a majority of the Corporate body did not attend, no election took plnce, and J. F. Bennallack, Esq. holds over tbe office of Mayor the third year.— Alter the public business was concluded, most of tho members of the Corporation who were present, ourgallant townsman, Sir llussey Vivian, M.

S S W,— but about fOUr o'clock in the afternoon the wind suddenly shifted, and blew a gale, or rather a hurricane, veering from the N N W. lo N. nnd N N E. The shipping were enabled to ride it out with- out much damage; but ( lie fishing boats suffered much. Three foundered in Gwaves- lake, and two were driven 6n shore. Happily no lives were lost. Several of ( he boats were in such peril that their crews were com- pelled to remain the whole night bailing and pumping, to prevent them from sinking.— At Treriflf, near ( his place, several large trees were blown down, and tho orchards and gardens in the neighbourhood suffered severely from the tempest. Several farmers and their wives, who had attended our market, werfe unable ( o sit their horses in exposed situations, and were com- pelled to remain for the night. The Elizabelh, Furse, master, suffered so severely at sea, during the gale oa ( he 4th inst. that she was forced to put in here to have her sails, & c. repaired. A large piece of American timber was lately picked up oft' Ihe Lizard, by the Hope, Kaller, master. " It has been towed into this place, and from its appearance, being covered with barnicles, it is supposed that it had been" in the water a long time.

The Emperor Alexander, it is asserted in letters from Vienna, has proposed to submit the dispute with the Porte, more especially as it relates to the future condi- t'on of the Greeks, to the decision of a Congress of " the Allied Powers. A general opinion prevailed in Spain of Riego's inno- cence, and addresses to the King, hi his favour, were daily presented from all parts of the country. That from Valladolid requests his Majesty to be King him- self, and foreign constitutionally. " If," say the ad- dre- sers," General Riego be guilty, which they strongly doubt, let him be proceeded against by law ; if lie be innocent, he ought to be restored It his command." The Editor of The Regulator, a Madrid paper, having alluded to a report of his Britannic Majesty being about to be married, in terms decided by the British Minister to be libellous, a prosecution was commenced - against the Editor, but the Jury of Accusation unanimously dismissed the charge. The Morning Chronicle says— Sir Robert Wilson's case is not the only one of a similar nature, and in some measure arising from a similar cause, which has re- j cerrtly fallen under our notice. We have now before lis an authenticated statement, with tfie official documents, of Serjeant Cummins, who, after 16 years' servicfe in the army, t. vo of Which he served as corporal, and nine as serjeant and colour sereant in the Royal Marine Ar- tillevy, was some time ago dismissed without a court- martial or any inquiry at which he was present, merely for proposing in a company the Queen's health, after that of the King bad been drank. For this heinous Offence this meritorious soldier, whose conduct, although a subaltern, has gained him an order from the Emperor Alexander, has been dismissed after 16 years' service, without pension or any remuneration whoever !"' An ancestor ol Richard Cumberland, of the same name, who was consecrated Bishop: of Peterborough, in 1661, was of so humane and gclieroufc a disposition that no church revenue could ever enrich him. At the end of every year he distributed to the poor whatever surplus he found upon a mihule inspection of his accounts, re- serving only one small deposit of ttventy- five pounds, which was found. ot his death in his bureau, with direc- tions to employ if for the discharge of hrs funeral ex- peuces : a sum, in his modest calculation, fully sufficient to commit bis body to the earth.

SIR ROBERT WILSON. 18, Regent- street, Pall- mall, Oct. 9, 1821. GENTLEMEN',— I feel it lo be my duty to lay before you the copy of a letter which I addressed to bis Royal Highness the Duke of York, immediately on my arrival in England, with a Copy of his Royal Highness's answer. I am, gentlemen, your very obliged servant, To the Electors of Southwark. R. WILSON. , Regent- street, Oct. 8,1821. SIB,— I have had thehonorof receiving your Royal Highness's answer to my letter an the 20th ult. in which, after complaining. that I had been removed from the army without a hearing, and without even the statement of any Charge against me, I respect- i fully demanded an investigation of my conduct, cither by | a court of inquiry or court martial. His Majesty's Ministers have , advised their Sovereign to refuse this request; and I thus find myself, after so many years of senrice, subjected to the severest punishment which can be inflicted on a British Officer, without' being'told of what I am accused. To defend myself against charges which, if tbey exist at all in o tangible shape, are studiously concealed from me, is evidently impossible. 1 can neither conjfefiture'tbeir motive, nor by whom tbey are preferred, nor on whose statements, misrepresentations, Oj— ifilneiiuL, IhAjr' tjury ' nrt— n- bHol thin « jncraiment gives h to e very latitude of surmise in wh'ch mnllce or folly may Indulge. It is true I have seen in the papers, and heard by rumours in society, a variety of things imputed to me, and suggested as the grounds of my ( lisfriEssaT; blrf I'declare," upon my honour, that every one of lliest; oJlegAflohs is " utterly false, and. that in every iristdflce Vliere the mention of names lins enabled me to trace those? sto'tfem'eliK to their supposed sources, their falsehood has either bo en ; il once exposed ni: d acknowledged, or they have been illsa\' 6to etl by the p'aiiie* said to have nJude tbem. Tho « e Who liltve' pCOceedcd to pnnlsh rtie wHhont either trial or h^ flrilig; or fkloiteltion, render it Impossible to give a more pietist1 contradiction,' until they shall be pleased to inform me wQtaf I Have dtine,' or what has beert whispered against me. But I onc6 hi6fe eflfneMlV beseech your Royal Highness to In- stitute, 111 WHaWer wuy slinll be deemed'the most searching, a rigordus Investigation of every part ofrfiy conduct. Your Royal Highness Is* well awflre, that before my dismissal L Was," beyolid all doubt, sulijrtct tomurtial'law; and if it be now sdid I aril no longer In this predicament, I desire to wove all ob- jections to tbCjtirlfihclloii of n military tribunal, in onler that no obstacle may lie Interposed to the inquiry' which I court. It is * 1tli\ infeigned reluctance that I ugoin presume to remhid your Royul HighnessOf tliOse services which you were formerly pleased t< J acknowledge';, but the strange situation in which I um now umccbutitaBlyplaeed, compels mo to itfer- your Royal High- nfewlo your letter of the 24 th January, 1815, and the documents tO wbich It relftWt; in further support of my claims to justice on tie jlrtsent o'chSToii. I httye the honour- to be, YourRoyal Hlghneis'smort obedient servant, R. WILSON. HOUSE GUARDS, Oct. 9, 1821. Sir,— I " have to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of yesterday, urging agaln an Investigation into- your conduct; to which I can only reply, that having- Iaid your former application before his Majesty, and communicated to you his Majesty's sen timents upon it, I " do nor consider myself warranted in taking any further step. " I am Sir, yours, FREDERICK'; Commander in- Chief. Sr Robert Wilson. J'opulaticn.— The population of Great Britain, nt the census in 1811, was ll, fi( J0,000, exclusive of the nrmv and navy, then about 500,000. From the returns, so far as " published, under toe present census, It appears the increase Is about 15 per cent. This will make the population of Great Britain at present to be 14,000,000 or souls. Ireland contains aboiK 6,500,000 people, making the population of the British dominions in Europe 20,500,000. The population of our North American possessions cannot be less- tbnn 1,500,000; the population of the West Indian colonies,' 900,000; Africa, about 130,000; in the Medi- terranean, 150,000; . colonies and dependencies in Asia> 2,040,000; and in oui1 extensive territories in the East Indies, perhaps 70,000,000 of sQuls. The whole population of tllf British Empire will, at that Tate, contain 05,220,000 of souls. The Russlnn, the next highest in tbe'scale of civilized nations, contains 50,000,000; Frtince, 30,000: 000; and Austria, an equal- number. The Roman Empire, in all its glory, contained 120,000,000, one half of whom were slaves. When we compare its situation w ith that of tho British Empire, in power, wealth, resources and industry; the arts, sciences, commerce, and agricul- ture, the preponderance of the latter in the scale of nations and ofempiresis great and most remarkable. The tonnage em- ployed in the merchant service is about 2,640,000 tons for Great Britain; tho exports 51,000,000, ( including 11,000,000 foreign aiid colonial); and imports, 36,000,000. The navy, during the last war, consisted rff 1000 ships of war; tho seamen at present in the merchant service are about 174,000: the net revenue of the state, £ 57,000,000 sterling. The capital of the Empire contains 1,200,000 persons, the" same number which Rome contained in the days of her greatest strength. The value of fixed or landed property in Great Britain, as calculated by Mr. Pitt, in 1787, was A'l, 600,000,000, and it may now be fairly takeu at £ 2,000,000,000. The cotton manufactures of the country are immense, and reach, in the exports, to £ 20,000,000, or one half of the whole. In short, taking eveiy thing Into con- sideration, the British Empire, in power and strength, may be stated as ihe greatest that ever existed on earth. On her domi- nions tho sun never sets; before his evening rays leave Quebec, ! his morning " beams have slione three hours on Port Jackson ; and while sinking frt> m the waters of Lake Superior, his eye opens upon the mouth of the Ganges.— Literary Chronicle. Anecdote.— An Englishman, who, attracted by the amenity of the climute, wished to fix his residence in Naples, desiied his banker to look out for a villa for him, which was done, and the gentleman regularly in- stalled iu his purchase; tbe next day, however, became in much hurry and alarm to his banker, to say he was determined to be off, for a fellow had assailed him with a claim for 12,000 crowns, which he swore had been lent half a dozen years ago, though the poor Englishman was scarcely a month old in Italy. How many witnesses has he got to prove it ? said the banker. No less than tfcn. What is to be done? Acknowledge the debt. Acknowledge the debt ? Certainly, and we will get 20 witnesses to swear that they saw you repay it. This was decisive, for the lawsnit was settled by a simple rejoinder and meetiug the cheat upon his own terms. Episcopal. Benevolence.— Richard de Berry, Bishop of Durham iu the reign of Edward the Third, had every week eight quarter* of wheat made info bread for the poor, besides nb alms dishes, fragments of his house, and large sums of money wbich lie bestowed on his journies. West, Bishop of Ely, in 1562, fed 200 poor people daily at his gates; and the Lord Cromwell usually the same number. Robert, Bishop of Winchelsea, gave every Friday and Saturday, a loaf of bread of a farthing price, to every beggar that came to bis door. Slowe says, the loaf was sufficient for the day. In time of dearth there were usually five thousand applicauts; and in n plentiful time, not less than four thousand loaves were distributed on a day. One of Bishop Burnet's parishioners, who was in ex- ecution for a debt, applied to him for assistance. The Bishop requested to know what would serve him, and re- instate him in his trade? Tbe man named the sum. Burnet instantly called hrs servant to give it him.— •' Sir," sard he, " it is all we have in the bouse."— t: " Well, give it thispoor man, you do not know the plea- sure there is in making a man glad." The late Queen - Soon after the death of her late Majesty, the Rev. Mr. Emmott, of Yarm. a dissenting minister, belonging to the Stockton circuit of the Wes- leyan Methodist connexion, being appointed to preach at'Stockton, refused to do so, because the pulpit of the chapel was not hung with any emblem of mourning befitting so solemn an event as the death of the late Queen, observing, that the abeuce of such customary indications of honour on the demise of any branch of the Royal Family, was a tacit acknowledgment that her Majesty was guilty of the accusation of her enemies. Hut, in consequence of many and repeated solicitations, he at last wuved his objection, and consented to preach; and be preached accordingly from the following passage: —" Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked; between him thnt serveth God and him that serveth him not."— Malachi cb. iii. v. 18. The reverend gentleman from these words delivered a most excellent discourse, whicb was so pa- thetic in some parts, as to draw tears and sobs from the congregation, concluding it with the Queen's own em- phatic observation, u They have destroyed me ;" after which, he proposed the following beautiful and appro- priate hymn :— " Tho morning flowers display their sweets, And gay their silken leaves unfold, As careless of the noon- tide heats, As fearless of the evening cold, " Nipped by the wind's untimely blast. Parched by the sun's directed my, The momentary glories waste, The short lived beauties die awuy. " So blooms the human face divine, When youth its pride of beauty shows, Fairer than spring tbe colours shine, And sweeter than the virgin rose. " Or worn hy slowly rolling years, Or broke by sickness in a day, Tho fading glory disappears, Tli# short- lived beauties die away. " Yet there, new rising from the tomb. With lustre brighterfar shall slriqe, Revive with ever- during bloom, Safe from diseases and decline. " Let sickness blast, let death devour, If Heaven must recompense our pains, Perish the grass, and lad* the. flower, If firm the word of God remains." The whole of the service excited so much approbation, that an Address, expressive Of the opinion o fthe Con- gregation, was prepared, and signed by a large majority of the members present, which was afterwards pre- sented to the Rev. Gentleman, notwithstanding we be- lieve, an attempt to suppress it.— Durham Chronicle. Letter- Writing.— A mistake, fatal to good eating and drinking in good companyi if not. to expected prefer- ment, if we may believe a London paper, occurred a short time ago. A celebrated Clerical character, well known in the literary World, who has long been in habits of intimacy with Mr. and Lady Elizabeth Whit- bread, and wlio- was also often seated at the lower end of the table of Lady Augusta Murray, better known to many as Duchess of Sussex, was the blunderer. The Rev. gentleman was under an engagement to dine with the former on a day when lie received a sudden invita- tion to make up a dinner party with the latter. He made his election directly. He sat down to write bis acceptance of the honour done him ; and to make nil apology to tile lady he had determined to disappoint; but unfortunately hq sent them most crossly ; for by mistake he addressed that intended for the Duchess, to the other party ; and Lady Elizabeth, on opening ( lie note addressed to herself in Dover- street, rcaif the following— Dear Duchess,— A thousand thanks for your most delightful invitation. 1 must, 1 will accept it; though to do so I am compelled to put off" the Brewer and his Wife." Lady Augusta Murray was little less' surprised, when she read in the note addressed to herself— lt The Rev. H— present's his respectful compliments to Elizabeth Whitbread, and regrets that the in- disposition of an Aunt, from whom ho has. great expec- tation, will prevent him from indulging himself iu tbe honour of, waiting upon the family this evening, i| DOrset- street." This mistake which he had fallen into, he discovered immediately on going to the table he had preferred ; and he took prompt measures to deprecate the wrath be felt conscious that he deserved. He wrote to Lady Elizar beth in terms of contrition, and amongst other things he said " that his soul would be in purgatory, while for this one error be felt that he merited banishments from the Paradise or her Patronage."— This letter did hiip no more service thau the former, for the lady is said to have replied in the following terms:—" Lady Elizabeth . Whitbread presents her compliments to ( he Rev. H—, and doubts not but that, when fatigued with, the society of Dukes And Duchesses, he would kindly condescend to put up with the humble fare of a Brewer and his Wife. At the same time, the Reverend applicant for pardon must clearly understand, that Lady Elizabeth Whitbread can never admit blasphemous language as an apology for ungentlemanly conduct," TO THE KING'S REGAL SUBSTITUTES. MY LORDS,— At a moment when the country is wrapped in a deceitful and dangerous calm— ut a juncture marked by silent, but universal apprehension— at a period when the deeply- invaded Constitution, shaken to its very bnsis, threatens chnnges thai them every thinking mind; at such a season, that the whol* executive government of this mighty empire should be entrusted to the guidence of men, who, in tbeir ministerial capa- city, have heaped so many calamities on the country, can be viewed only us an augmentation of our mislortunes. Were » yen ihe pillnrs of the imperial edifice erect and unimpaired, eiiher by ihe slow, bnt inevitable ravages of time, or tbe more insidious undermining of ministerial craft, such virtue talents as yours would be far from sufficing for its preservation ; nay, the very tendency of their exercise would be, to give ob- liquity to its rectitude, and dissolution to its soundness. With tbe qualifications, mental und moral, of the whole score of his majesty's Regal Substitutes, i am tolerably well ac- quainted : and of the pretension of u certain portion of the Sacred Junta, the new Holy Alliance, the public are by no means ignorant. Too convinced, indeed, too fatally convinced, have ihe people long been, of their devotion to place, and aversion to public liberty, not to expect from their newly authorised administration, still furiher insults and injuries. To find in the list of any royal stud, ihe names of their old oppressors, were iufBciently afflicting; but ( o see them in a catalogue of cop- missioned Lords Justices- set of men invested yvith a species of regal authority— a circle of imperial umpires nnd magis- terial dictators— is painful 10 British pride, nlnrming to British reason, and repultlve of every hope. With all my respect for the royally of whloh this Irtiperium is the representative, ( and who more reverences hi| King than does the loyal Algernon?) I find it impossible to suppress my astonishment, that his Ma- jesty should include, in n body of temporary rulers, persons whose publio characters and official conduct are to generally obnoxious. That minutf- rial venality and corruption have, like a fetid torrenl, infected qnd svept away almost every thing that is sacred, every thing that is truly valuable to Englishmen; and thnt hit . servants ar'^ ( be consequent objects of almost uni- versal detestation, the Sovereign could not possibly require to he informed, because he could pot possibly be the most igno man in the kingdom. If, then, my Lordr, I cannot applaud the royal policy that has blended with the better portion of your viceroysbipF, with whom I should have thought you would by no means have been proud 10 associate officially, how far must I be from discovering either sage calculation, or manly spirit, in your acceptance of such companions! I knciw that in the political world ( wbich will constantly have its eyes upon your conduci) there are many who nffirm, thpt you nre very well matched; at leasl, that no one of your commissioned body is so eminently good, ns to form a foil to bis brethren. How far they may be right in ( hat point, 1 will not pretend to determine; but cer- tainly, soma uniong you are so eminently bad, that the blackest complexioned ofannncieni nnd very renowned synod, would appear fair by tbeir side. Bu( though, my Lords, 1 use the liberty of censuring some of you, for compromisingyour cha- racters, by suffering yourselve- s to be mixed with such col- leagues ns we find among ypu, still, ns a body, you cannot be offended ; since those of you who need be nsbpmed ofthe rest bear a very dimmuiive proportion to tl\ e whole. Were it happily otherwise; were the greater the better portion, the force of its light might illumine even ibe darkness of corrupt and san- guinnry ministers, hud Ibe revival of miracles be acknowledged. The idea ii pleusing. L « us indutgb tlie speculation, and ima- gine the consequences. Tbe characters nnd sentiments of the present ministers reversed, what would they produce? So meiamorpbosud, how would they act? First, such n change would present us with men conspicuously honest in their prin- ciples: men distinguished by their love of the constitution in its primeval purity; men as respectable for their virtue and humanity, as by the elevation of their office ; men who, seeking their master's glory by tke securily of publio freedom and happiness, wduld be regarded by tbe people as ( heir tutelary guardian?, nnd honoured by their applause and pariinlity. Secondly, these men would act ( he parts of Patriots nnd Chris- tians. Did sorte miteonceived measure on the part of Pnrliu- tor themselves create n feeling of discontent, instead of viewing it with unconcerned coolBess, or unmanfully shrinking fr'oin the charge, and then meeting the provoked popnlace with the butchery of muskets and sabres, they would com » freely and frankly forth, correct the public judgment, sootlw tbe rising passions, Hnd dread to spill the blood of their fellow- subjeots. Really thinking tbe People in error - thai their fears were groundless, nnd tbeir complaints frivolous, tbey would be soli- citous to tranquillise their apprehensions, and silence their murmurs, by the most gentle and reasonable means ; nud value their places only as they afforded tbem the opportunity of con- vincing the country, tint nothing is so dear to the Sovereign's heart and their own pbilnnthropio bosoms, as its freedom, prosperity, and hnppines?. Standing, as did tbe Chief Priests of old, in the gap between the ICfng and the Nation, they would fearlessly, because patriotically, raise aloft the scales of justice, and scorn, were bis conduct irregular and reprehensible, to be panders to his vices, public or private, or to feed his follies, at the expence of tbeir own sobf- r and discreet characters. Did tbeir own voices lack the power to restruin his wanton will, either in respect of Ihe community, or of nny member of his royal house, they woutil will upon the Bishops - ibe servants of the living God would bo implored " To cry aloud, and spare not— to reprove even Kings for bis sake ;" and to pray for tbe salvation of tbe Crown and tbe People. Had he an unfortu- nate predilection for stuntling armies in limes of peace, tbey woidd incessantly remind him of their incompatibility with tbe geniys of a free nation; ihnt millinry habiis, at ihe best, but rpore especially if deteriorated by a barrack system, soon ren ders them fitter guardlaps for a despol, ihan defenders of their fellow citizens. Tbe npblo truth uttered by iEschines, would be frequently dropt in his ear—" Know, Oh, Athenians ! thnt a free people preserve their liberty and live ijy reason and ibe laws; tyrants and oligarchies, by blood and standing armies;" nor would tbey suffer him to iorget, that neither Israelites nor Atheniun « ,. Corinthians nor Achaeians, Lacedaemonians nor Thebons, Samuites nor Romans, while tboy preserved their liberties, maintained any soldiers in constaht pay within their cities, or suffered any of ( heir subjects to make war their pro- fession; well knowing that the sword and absolute rule always march hand in hand. . But this is a golden dream, and ill, indeed, does it ncoord witH tliis our iron age; an age that, feeling all the evils of mis- government,^ ees myriads of ihreatening bayouets, and is bushed. To say, my Lords, that Europe is not ruled by the sword, were to contradict evidence that has long convinced tbe dullest; nnd to say thai, regarded in the aggregate, you uro not a body tolerably well qualified to wie'lf the tWenty- heuded sceptre left in your hands, would be to court contradiction. The reasons why delegated sovereignly is ineligible in principle and injurious inpruolice, are numerous; and you could not so promptly ac- cept your shores in tho officiul unomaly, without incurring as many exposures of your bad judgment, or something worse than thep^ lio doubt of yo. ur virtue. But tbe fact is ( and you will not be hardy eaougb to dw it), that, when you accepted your, present appointments, you knew you w; erppngaging to act pans that it neither bneame you Xo undertake, nor tbe people to view with satisfaction. You knew that, nt tbe best, a transferred regality is a monster in politics; nnd tbnt upon tbn principles on which such mun as you would be expected to modulate yonr measures, every vestige of tbo country's remnlniug freedom would be endangered. You knew that Hunover had always been a dead weight upon England ; that as encouraging a personul intimacy between our own Monurchs and the Conti- nental De.- pols, it exposes British Kings to ibe influence of arbitrary examples. YQU know too by what House our liberties have always bt- en grudged as. You know, that the visits of soma of our Into Kings to Qe^ many, was almost uni- formly productivp of lesser or greater evil. You know that ihe repeal of that clause in the Act of Settlement, which Restrained the Sovereigns of Euglaud from quitting the empire without the ttonsent of Parliament, was directly at vurianoe wjtb the spirit of the British Constitution; you also know, tbat according to the principles of that Connittoion, no subject, or body ofsubjeots, could exercise tbe monurchinl authority ; and tbat nothing short of dire « nd inevitable necessity, could snucrion so high a irust. You knew, that, in cases of capital delinquency, it would bu youi; Motion to, dccide upon Urn, life orid^ ath of yourfellow^ subjects; and, jpi, you did tot shrink from thaawfully respon- sible task ! You knew the poor criqjjnn^ wouy no lopger have the benoflt of those feelings of clemency nnd pity, whjcji cop I ulone inhabit tbe bosom of the common father of his people all these things you knew; and yet, instead of representing their importance to his Majesty, and strenuously advising him to forego his unpnrental resolution, to tear himself from the embraces Of bis subjecls, you promptly, and with alacrity, ac- cepted your new dignities, aad found ample compensation for tbe public misfortune, in the temporary aggrandizement to which yourselves are exalted! x Upon what principle tbe first parliament of the First George deemed itself justified in, subjecting the country to these and a thousand other efils, nt tlie'caprice of a loco- motive King, who wonld rutber be any where than at home, I can no more con- ceive, than how you, my Lords Justices, can reconcile it to your professed love of the people, for whose good you are now affecting to act, not to have sincerely and earnestly remonstrated with his Majesty, against a measure that virtually amonnts to his temporury abdication of the Crown; and for a while, nt least, throws the fute of his subjects upon the arbitrary whim/, conceits, and passions, of a club of raw nnd inexperienced Vice Roy>. Surely, my Ixirds, a proper representation of the inevi- table inconveniences of his Majesty's tbus withdrawing himself from England, could not have failed of its due effect! An ex- postulation to so gracious a Monarch, from n body of snch pure nnri amiable characters, must have touched and melted bis paternal heart. Between bosoms so congenial ns his and your own, in all the tender relations of life, a sympathy would have been awakened, soothing to yourselves and beneficial to tbe people. Reminding him of ibe cruel nakedness of a free land, without eiiher an acting King, or u convoked Parliament, you would buve moved his inmost soul; uiid apprizing him of the possibility of the sacrifice of lives, which, were he present, his benign consideration might spare, you hud checked his step, and changed his resolve. But Heaven ordained it otherwise, and piety commands onr content. Though you, my Lords Justices, are not too good to be bis Majestj's representatives, perhaps he is too good for bis people to be entitled to his con- stant presence; and since even the merits of a wife did not ensure tbe honour of his unremitted favour, it were indeed un- reasonablu in his people to expect indulgences of which the Queen Consort was deemed unworthy. Since, then, the die is cast— since at tho royal fiat ihe British Constitution is melted down to an oligarchy, and for n term, we are doomed to be governed by a nest of commissioned rulers, ( insects, more re- nowned for tbeir stings than tbeir bonev) it only remains for us to be patient and submissive under their supreme domination. But then, where is the bnppy provision of a third estate to him, und balance the scales of the Constitution? By tbisunjusrifiable stnte of the executive portion of our government, are not the three branches reduced toone? v Nay, 10 worse than one? the Sovereign, at bis pleasure, can delegate his regal functions to men who tire both Ministers and Members of Parliament, where is the security for those rights nnd liberties, the preserva- tion of which constiiui » d the motive of our wise nnd provident ancestors, in the tripartite form they gave to the Constitution, nod the limitation they assigned to the power of the Crown 1 And did this limitation include the transfer of royal authority to whomsoever, or to any number of persons whatever, it may please tho head of ibe state to place in the seat of snp. remacy 1 Certainly not; though nscertainlyi tbis has been dorfe; and we nre expected to - hail, und to obey, as our royal and rightful masters, a body of men who, strictly spenking, ate oi mneh entitled ( o command and rule us, n « the membersofHhe Turkish Divan. You, my Lords, nccording to the principle on wBftJh you have Wen placed over the English people, they are your obligated und bounden subjects. wheil ibe royal Shepherd resigned his crook, be transferred the sheep and tbe pasture; and now, we can live but by your bounty. No King, po Peers, no Commons, to controul ambitions frincy, yoar despotic ldeils mny roam at large ; and, while abrOad, yoar mastef is visiiing the first schools In the universe for tyranny, you, at home," may be hubiiunting his subjects to its endurance. Oct. S, 1S81. ALGERNON. Miserable State of a Swiss Colony.— Thursday a Meeting, both numerous and respectable, consisting principally of Swiss Gentleman reading in London, took place ut t^ ie City of Lon- don Tavern, to iflSe into consideraiioiji the vnrious documents ' ught to this country by P. Schmidtmeyer, Esq. describing dreadful situuiiod of a Swiss seulement in the district of Canto Gollo, Rio Janeiro. Most of the- Swiss Gentlemen and Merchants of London were present, the Chair was taken by Mr. Doxat, and several most excellent speeches were made, de- scribing, In forcible nnd affecting terms, the present melancholy condition ofthe unfortunate settlers. Tho report stated ihe ex- patriation on this occansion amounted to nearly 2,000 men, wo- men and children, from the canton of Friburg andoiber parts of Switzerland, it arose from a very considerable reduction whicb took place in ihe manufactures of that country, and from other circumstances, which bereft a great number of people of iheir usual occupations nnd resources. The colony was formed un- der tbe an « plces of the Portuguese Government. They pro- ceeded by the way of France and Holland to ( heir new desti nation, where they arrived by several ships, at the end of 1810 and the beginning of 1820. On tbeir arrival nt the'district " des- tined to them many unforeseen difficulties intervened. Owing to the thick woods, the very unlevel face of the oountry, and olhar difficulties, but few of tbe subdivisions of tbe lands which are to constitute tbe several lots destined to the respective families of settlers nppear yet to have been mado; and, owing to ( his and other circumstances, a large portion of those settlers were still, nt tbe date of tbe las: accounts, deprived of the possibi- lity of commencing ibgsejirduoiis occupations which were to procure them means of subsistence; and notwithstanding tbe steps taken by tb » Portuguese Government towards this opera- tion of subdividing ibe land; no inconsiderable numbpr or families remained, still ignorant of the spots on which they were to pluce themselves. Cases had occurred in wbich the settlers who had commenced clearing the ground, and brought it in a state of much forwardness, were deprived of tbe fruits of their exertions, on its being discovered that they had been at work on a plot which had originally fallen by lot to another family, 10 which they were consequently obliged to cede it, and com- mence again their laborious tasks. In such a state of things a large proportion of the colonists have been deprived of every means of obtaining yet a subsistence from tbeir individual ex- ertions, at the same time that all their little supplies of raiment, ( fee. have been gradually exhausted: and their situation would buve become irretrievably disastrous, but for Ihe subsidies of the Portuguese Government, which, however generously- afforded, could not meet every exigency incident to such lamentable cir- cumstances. The Meeting warmly eulogised Mr. Schmidt. meyer, for the philanthropic views which had led him 10 visit ihese unfortunate people ; and it WaS ultimately agreed open a public subscription, and to solicit tbe donations of every friend of humanity to ulleviate their sufferings. The meeting then broke up. CONSOLATION OF RELIGION. If we were without hope, we should be of all men the most miserable. And what is it that smooths tho rugged paths of life— softens the, asperities of wayward misfortune— alleviates tlje forlorn condition of the poor and miserable, but the consolations of Religion? It is that which reduces worldly vanity to sqbgr reflection - pride to humility— and inspires the awakened proffl- gato with a sense of riiontl duty and religious rectitude. When the soul is weighed down with accumulated wretchedness and misery, what bat the revealed will of the Father of all can cheer or emit a ray of enlivening reflection o'er the gloomy waste of affliction and deppqir ? Religion may be snid to be tho sheet- anchor, of a l.'| iristian'sliope. When the storms of unrelenting advet> ity display their rude and unfeeling character— when the earthly prospect is clonjcd with bodings of misery nnd woe, what hut true religion can impart consolation to tbo hearl- brokcn feel- iiigs of the child of misfortune and wretcheduess? The value of this greatest of all human blessings must be more fully appreciated by the poor and needy, than by tho rich and affluent. A due sense of tho all- wise dispensations of Providence, grounded in a humble nnd devout feeling of faith and hope, is calculated to impress upon the mind or the meek and lowly, the most comfortable and consoling assurances in tbo possession of a religions expectation of heavenly happiness. Poverty may denu- diite the believer In Christianity, it may expose him to the bitter sarcasms ofthe hypocrite on the one hand, nnd the proud on the other; It may rob him of the couniepance of the wealthy and the support of tbe vain; it may subject him to the taunts of ridicule and the ' effi^ ls of wanton misrepresentation— but it affords a noble recompense for these varied ills; it teaches the mind the philosophy of earthly expectations, and reduces it to a calm, sober reliance on the resources irt religion. The general benefits which flow from the consolations of religion ore inesti- mable in their character and invaluable in their operation. The principles upon whldi true religion Is founded always present a point to which the mind may gravitate amidst the most seductive, the most jncpnllnpnt wanderings of the passions and feelings. In the progress of Ufe, every species of uncertainty is liable to em- barrass the most confident expectations, or the most stvpgitine The brilliant picture of hope, the glowipg feeiipg ,; knd the lull sense of fruition, whether it applies to time, things, or sense, are orten frustrated by the unforeseen, result1 of circumstances, and by the unstable condition of all earthly speculations. When timse discouraging events occur, they teach the salutary lesson of the unsubstantial pleasures of this life, and evince the frail and transitory nature of sensual and worldly enjoyments. than in the zenith of prosperity and the pursuit of unabated en- joyment But tlie consolations of Religion upon a Death Bed, are to a Christian the most Important of all blessings.
