There are about 200 acres of inclosed ground, 174 acres of which are arable land, of superior quality, and in a high state of cultiva- tion. The Farm is all divided, and inclosed with stone dykes, into 20 regular fields of a proper size, which are in general well watered.

To the EDITOR ofthe ABERDEEN CHBOXICLE. SIR, UN TIL I perused your paper of the 26th January, I was not aware, that any of the Feuars on your new Streets would have been indulged so far, as to be allowed to build only when convenient for themselves. Being a little interested in the matter, I have now made inquiries, and have learned a good many, particulars, some of which only shall be alluded to at present; the others shall he reserved for another occasion, if need be. Certain Feus were, it seems, taken on speculation, but the value of such properties having, like most other things, fallen in value, the original leu us cannct get quit of tin in. It w. uid appear, that some of the Trustees for the Creditors had been at different times extremely urgent, that the stipu- lated buildings should be erected, as security for the ground rent of those feus, and had more than once, by perseverance, been able to procure an order of the Board, on the ftniars to do the needful ; but which order has not been Complied with, neither has the Board gone the length of enforcing its com- mands : thus the matter rests—- of course, the security to the public is not now heritable, but personal. It would appear from the interference ofthe Trustees, that they take responsibility on themselves ; why then do they not > ersevetein seeing this order carried into execution ? Wiii they couv. tfmnv e the belief, that the order had been reluctantly extorted from them, by a few independent characters at their Board, while the majority of them nre willing to be stigmatised. as beingsuhservif-. ttoa secret influence, and dispos- ed to sacrifice the interest of the trust, to please men in power ? The • i. . c w open, they loofc. to the Trustees io ; o theif diuy ; or it' thatsbould be neglected, or over- tCi. eJt ty a srnUe majority, it i* & tfc hoped, thai the hide* pendent members will take effectual measures to exculpate themselves, by a public communication to the Creditors, tlieii constituent^. • ' • Some such determined measure appears Tiow proper and ne- cessary.

Tliis report consists merely of the echo of formet distresses. With respect to the routine of country bu- siness, there is nothing of novelty or interest to mention. The Wheats, where thev have not been flooded, are generally found to look well; but drawn upward as they have been, bv a constant series of warm and moist wea- ther, without the slightest check from frost, the appre- hension is far from being groundless, that they may be exhausted by excessive vegetation, and ultimately be more productive in Straw than Corn, it was supposed last month, from the wet and poachy state of a great part of the lands, that much ofthe Wheat sowing must be postponed till after Christmas ; but from subsequent ac counts, in spite of all difficulties, it seems, that a finish has been generally made. Talavera ( Spanish) Wheat is getting out of repute ; perhaps Corn from a warm cli- mate should never be sown in this country in the autumn, until it shall have bccome naturalised to our soil. Sheep, in course, are doing barllv abroad, with their fleece and loins constantly wet, feeding on sodden and half- rotted turnips. The mortality among them in various Counties, and in Scotland, has already been considera ble ; and unless a speedy change in the weather should supervene, a general rot, like those in former days may lie apprehended ; in the meantime they who keep sheep abroad in such circumstances, yet possessing the mean, of feeding them under shelter ( and there are many such men) may, perhaps, be wise men, though certainly sor- ry calculators. But custom and fashion must ever go- vern practices, as well in sheep husbandry, as in physic and divinity. A public fortune teller of prime notoriety, who, moreover, refers to tbe exact fulfilment of his for mer predictions, has lately ventured to prophesy a still farther decline in the price of Wheat, to the ratio of cent, per cent. Give the markets. time for this, and the pre- diction may be verified ;. but should the old rules of wea- ther- wisdom hold their ground, and a warm and moist winter be followed by a. cold and blighting spring and summer, it may be presumed, . that neither the quantity nor qualitv of the future Wheat crop will give much sanction to a farther decline of price, in whatever hu- mour currency may find itself. During several weeks past, the causes of rain and fog, of the former particu- larly, apjiears to have been evidently exhausted ; yet a state ofmoisture in the atmosphere has constantly prevail- ed, and the lands have remained in a very wet and poachy ftate. There are at present great hopes of a favourable change. Fine, heavy, dry V\ heat, short in quantity, and much in request, is wo- th 75s. per quar- ter ; but- in general, all kinds of produce are necessarily at a declining price, since the supply invariably exceeds the demand. Perhaps long wool is an exception, beine; rather ready of sale. Manufactures are in a far itiore prosperous state than Agriculture, and are gradually relieving the land from a part of its superfluous labour ers.—- Middlesex. KINCARDINESHIRE. With the exception of a few days about the 14th and 15th, the weather has been, uncommonly mild throughout the month, and farm work has been carried forward in fine style. Ploughing of lea is nearly finished ; and if good weather continues through next month, very little will remain to be done hut sow and harrow. The early sown wheat has a most luxuriant appearance; and We never remember being itr a better state for resisting the cold nipping frosts in February and March. The mild weather has caused the turnips run to seed—-,' t cir cumstance rather uncommon at this season of the year but there are no fears of a scarcity of this article fo.' keeping on cattle until grass. Farm stoci;. of ail- des criptions, continue to sell at low prices. Notwithstand- ing great numbers of cattle have been slaughtered dttr'n- the month, prices have been on the decline. Good f sells from 5s. to 6s. per sione, and the supply more thai: equal to the demand : good cows, near calving, are per l/' aj* worth a fittfe more money tlioft fat; but all other. ' ascriptions: of cattle are at dull sale, at um- ill pric- i."—, F< t she?]} are plenty, at no improvementin price.

The crop ( as was predicted) exceeds an avernge both in quarftity and ( fuaUtv ; and although the co- lour of both Oats and Bear ifi a shade darker th in last year, tint former yields well at the mill, and the latter malts very freely. Had we to stop here,- the Report would tie very favourable t hut in consequence of the absence of demand for produce, ' is situation of the Agriculturist is daily .. retting w > rse ; and if no very'considerable change takes placc in the markets. It is ut- terly impossibly the rents can hp paid. The br- st fat with di eulty brings 37s. 6d, to IDs. perewt. sinking offal, in Aberdeen market ; and Pork ISs to 21s per cwt. Wheat, tie growth . ofthe cmthty 24s. to 23s. per Linlithgow boll ; Cats ( PoU- toe) 15s. to 16-. 6d,; Citmmtfn, 13-. 6d: to 15s, ; Bear. 16s. to 20s ; and Oatmeal, 12s to i3i. . Under these cir- cumstances. a Petition to Parliament, setting forth tbe riiiuoiii state of the Agricultural interest of the County, and priving re- lief is in progress, under the ausjii'cos of the Agricultural As- sociation. Whether the praycrof the petition will be td alter • he Corn Laws, or if ( having shewn the existence ofthe evil) the relief is to be left to the : wisdom of Parliament, without pointing out any remedy, has not yet heen decided ;•— one hiitg, however, is pretty evident, that no immediate or ; if" C- » tuai relief can he produced by an alteration of the Corn Laws ( notwithstanding the urgent clamour for this measure among iur brethren in England) : No Ministry would he hardy enough to recommmend to Government to impose a duty ot* 40s. per quarter, at all times, and under all circumstances, on foreign wheat Land- even if they- didi and'the measure was carried, it is morally certain that a duty of whatever imoune could have no effect, as long aa we h: ive enough, >?, nd Prirf? than enough, ofrmr own. growth. In order in sorafe degren to fall in with the views of tbe English A griculturists, i' » -; said tbe Government intend to propose to Parliament to reductf the protecting price of wheat to 70s per quarter, with a cor- responding reduction on other species- of grain ; and to impose a duty of 15s. to 20s. per quarter on foreign wheat, when the price is at 70s reducing tbe duty one shilling for each shilling which the average price of wheat exceeds 70s. in England, unifl at 85s. or 90s. the du'y would cease altogether. The only be- nefit which cotild possibly arise from till- plan would be to pre- vent, in some degree, the excess of importation when ( he port* were open ; as soon as the price in England rn. e m 70i per quarter, some foreign tvbeat would be sold, and theref ire tho price- would sink a littje ; and as the foreigners in ordinaiy yeaiscould easily afford to pay 15s. to 20s per quarter of duty, he very same eff.' Ct would result as if the protecting prii c was reduced to 70s. or at most to 75s. Until the pri.- e rose to 70s. it is as clear as possible, that no effect whatever would fnl~ low from the proposed alteration i— it is not. however, impro- bable that the checking the excess of import might be as be* neficiai, as the lowering of the protecting price would Ire inju- rious : and my argument is not that" this measure would do mischief but only that it it would do nog wl. One thing i* however certain, that, the constant complaints ofthe Agricul- turists, ( however well founded,) by showing and exaggerating the stock of corn in th^ country, has had a tendency to keep down the prices fur the last two or three fours. It was well known to tbe Corn Merchants, that whenever the Govern- ment interfered to stop the distillers in the time of war. thirf was a signal for a rise in price, because the public dreaded the" scarcity : in like manner, when it is urged upon them, day after day. that the quantity i* f corn in the country cannot Ixf consumed, is it. reasonable to suppose that speculators wilt bo inclined to increase or to lay in a stock ? Nothing is nioro ideal than the value of food, if a man dreads want, he wilt look for tomorrow ; but if he believes there J3 more than I, a can consume, he will lay in liis food from day to day, in com- fortable security, as he does at present. One measure of very great importance, andwhich would pro. dure an immediate imptovement in the demand for Barley and Oats, and Ultimately for Wheat, seems unaccountably to havees* c. ped tbe notice ofthe Landed InterestaltogetUer-. hisis a com- plete revision aad alteration Of the Distillery Laws. At pre- sent the licensed distillers Consume annually 600,000 quarters of grain ; and it is probably below tire mark to state, that ( his . ( juantity, under a different system, might be deiibled. Were the Government ty lower the duty a little, permit them t. i make their worts as weak as they pleased, and allow the spirits to be bonded for tbe duty, the same as foreign, for two or three years; by this means- their spirits would he of such quali'/ aS almost entirely to supersede the use of foreign in Eng- land, and the first step for the suppression of smuggling w mldl belaid. It is well known that it is more Lhe superior quality than the difference of price which supports the smuggler; aiict that their article, exclusiteof the risk, is in general produced at a higher price than is asked by licensed distillers If tho cause of tliis inferiority lies,- as it Certain Ty does, with the law, surely the couu » ry should, wTtli ohe voice, demand a revisal, and a lilor* equitable system. A very able paper, on this sub- ject, will be found in tbe New Edinburgh* Iteview, which isl well worth the attention of the Landed Inteiest. Th « Salt Laws likewise teqtiire tevisa). As they stand at present, although the price of Pork, as aho^ e sia'cd, d. es not, exceed 20-. per cwt.

On Tuesday last the 22.1 Inst. a Meeting; was held at the George Inn, at Huittiligiton, to take into eonsidera- t'on the propriety of petitioning the House of Commons on the subject of the distress which now pervades all the active classes ofthe community, ainl the agricultural class in particular. Tlie Meeting was large ami most respectable. _ A dinner was provided at the Geor *.', aij. il Sajhitel \\ ejls, Esq. having been eallul to the Chair,- the company sat down to it at half past two'o'clock. After the cloth was removed, the Chairman intro- duced the subjcct ofthe petition m a neat and appro- priate speech. He said, that after sixteen vefirs of ar- duous struggle against the corruptions and violence of the fatal system" of Mr. Pitt, he hod, thank God, lived to see some hope ofa change. After many, many . years oi' the vilest political slavery, the. county' had gained something like, freedom when it returned lis present noble and excellent Representative, Lord John ttftsscll. But there was milch more to do in order to arrive at that Complete victory, with any thing short of which they ought not to be contented. God kuows what difficul- ties lie had to struggle with during the period to which he had alluded. When he looked back on the series of persecutions which he litul had to endi\ re, he sometimes felt astonished that he was still in existence. To des- cribe the piorti f'io. atiotis, the insults, the persecutions of all sorts that he had had to endure, was quite beyond i his, or the power of anv man that ever existed. To Have an idea ofthe thousandth part of them, they must be/ eft ; and he did not wish even his enemies to gain, the knowledge bv so cruel a proof. lie thanked God, however, that at last a change had arrived. _ He rejoic- ed at the change, though pioduced by suffering, since it was to be produced by no other means. The proof df that change was now actually before his eyes ; for when was there a meeting like the present in the County of Huntingdon ? They nil knew, that on the day of their great triumph ( a most glorious triumph it was), when they dined in that verv room to celebrate the re- turn of their aniiuMe, upright, and excellent Represen- tative, I. ord John Russell, who wasau. honour even to the iilustrion ; house, they could muster only eighty- two per- .' sons to sit down to dinner ; and he now saw in that room, nomethino approaching to double tli. it number. " Well then," said he, " 1 have not laboured in vain ; I have not suffered persecution for nothing ; and I have, Gentle- ! men, no hesitation in saying, that this is the proudest 3av of my life.' The Petition was then put, and, after some little ] objection on the part of Michael Well?, Esq. was carried, fciih only three hands held up in the negative. Th- petition stated the extreme distress of the Agri- ctiltnnsts—• which it attributes to the ruinous load of taxation, and the change recently made in the value of money calls f: ir the. abolition of all sinecures and pen- sions not fairlv merited— a diminution of the V* vil list, and a reduction of the interest of the debt— and, lastly, a reform in the House of Commons. Several toasts were drank during the evening,—" The King," " The Memory of the Queen," " Prosperity to the County of Huntingdon," " Lord John Russell," " Earl Fit'/, william," " Lord Milton," and many others ; amongst which was that of " . Mr. Cobbctt." Mr. CoBTSETT then rose, and made a long speech' anon the state of the agriculturists, in which he went lifer nearly the same ground as at the Sussex Meeting.! . He concluded as follows :— Gentlemen, to enable the tenants to pay the rents, the mass of taxation must come down to the standard of 1792. I am persuaded a great deal lower, but to that mirk at the least. How then,, is this to he accomplished^? . Certainly not without a re- duction, and a very large one, of tho interest of the debt.; To this it must come. They may do what they will.— They mav try and try again ; thev may even undergo the indelible disgrace of putting forth bales of paper a< min ; they may borrow, postpone, shuffle and deal as. thev like; they must, at last, come to a reduction of the. interest of the debt. And yet, who will dare to propose finch a measure unless the army befirst'discharged ? For, after the debt, this is thc great load of expense. And why not get rid of it ? How many ages passed without anv such thing as a soldier, in time of peace, being kiipwn in England ? And what do we now want with a standing army, with barracks, fortresses, and all the mormons attendant expenses ? It will he said, that the army is necessary to keep thc Radicals in order. Now, that is very true ; and I frankly confess that an army is accessary for this purpose. But would it not be best, then, to get rid ofthe Radicals ? And why not do it at once ? I would extinguish the Radicals in quick time. - The troublesome noisy f'cllo. ws should soon cease to trouble me. They are everlastingly bawling for a Reform of the Parliament ; and I would toss into their mouths the thing they are bawling for. That is the way, and he you well assured, Gentlemen, that is- the only way, of restoring tranquillity and happiness to this great, opulent, and justly renowned, but ' now harrassed and distracted kingdom. All 1 it will, by some, be said, but what a ' set of low- bred, illiterate, and stupid fellows a reformed House- of Commons would be 1 Gentlemen, a County Member in Somersetshire has lately assured the distress- ed people there, that the Parliament and the Ministers participated in their sorrows at what has happened.— Now, then, could a reformed Parliament do any thing rmre than what the present has done ? God forbid 1 should utter a sound tending to bring thc present House of Commons into contempt, not having, at this present time, anv inclination for a trip beyond the seas ; but I may ask, and I will ask, what a reformed Parliament could have done worse than ruin all the tenants ofthe country, and rob all the landlords of their estates ? What a reformed Parliament coiild have done worse than break all contracts to the enriching of all the idle at the expense of the lalioriaus, to send the farmer to gaol and his family to the poor- house in order to give triple pay to the placemen and pensioner, and to give the Nobleman's estate to the Jews and Jobbers of ' Change Alley ? We forbear to speculate on the manner in which a Reformed Parliament would be engaged at a crisis like this ; for, what Can imagination afford in comparison to thc reality of that which we now behold, but of which neither pen jior tongue will be able to convey to posterity any ade- quate Idea 1 From that book which we all read, w- e learn that they were married and given in marriage, till Noah went into the Ark : Mr. Gibbon ( 1 think it is) tell us, that the Turks were thundering at the gates of Cons- tantinople, while the Christians within were disputing about grace and free- will. And. while the very founda- tions of society are breaking up in England, its Parlia- ment is busily occupied with the means of causing two- penny publications to be sold for sixpence, and with turning those of one sheet into others of three sheets and a quarter, and that., too, for the express purpose of narrowing the circulation of that knowledge which is absolutely necessary to give us even a chance of putting an end to those evils which that Parliament itself must necessarily deplore. Gentlemen, 1 had before to thank von for the honour you had done me in- drinking my health : I have now to express my gratitude for the kind- ness which has allowed me to consume so much of your time. SUFFOI. K AGRICULTURAL MEETINGS. A meeting of the owners and occupiers of land in the county of Suffolk was held on Tuesday last, at Stow- jaarfiet, pursuant to a public appointment of its High Sheriff, Phiii'i Rennet, Esq. of' Rongllamhail, near Bury. At one o'clock the High Sheriff ascended thc Lilslings, which were immediately filled with a number of the leading nobility and gentry of die courtly. Among these present were, Ilia Grace the Duke of Norfolk, Karl Marsha! ; the Duke of GTWton, Lord II. l-' ilzroy, Lord C. Fitzroy, Loi- d Call tJiorpe, I. ord Viscount Dunwich, Lord Buntingfiehl, & c. The under Sheriff having read the requisition,- Sir Henry Banbury came forward, and, after addressing the meeting at considerable length, Concluded by tnov- iiwr the following resolutions, which were seconded W Sir Kober^ Haiiand, and Unanimously agreed to, viz. 1, ' I'll. it the owners and occupiers of land in the county of Suffolk arc now- labouring under unexampled distress, which is the more alarming because it does not appear to result from temporary or accidental cau- es. 2. That we cannot Concur ill the assertion that our distresses arc owi/ ig to an excess in the production of corn ; we cannot consider plenty as a curse ; hut we fear tiiat a decrease ill the demand has resulted from the lamentable poverty ofthe people; and w- e desire to see the condition of all classes so much im- proved, as to insure steady prices to the farmer, and employ- ment to the labourer. 5. That excessive taxation is the main cnuse of that distress which is crushing the landlord, the tenant, and the labourer, the gross amount of the taxes rising farabove that proportion which ihe income df tile nation is able to sustain, and their elFect having been aggravated by injurious effects upon thecur- rency of ihe realm. - J. That the return from a paper currency to that of gold has increased the profits of all persons enjoying fixed pay, or salaries, or places, as well as ofthe fundholders, at the expence ofthe agricultural and trading interest. 5. That if ( briber and more effectual measures be not ad- opted for the relief of Ihe agriculturists, the proprietors and occupiers of land, together ui'h those traders and artisans who are chiefly dependent upon the farmers for their support, must sink into irreparable ruin. 6. That the decay of agriculture already disables the farmer frotn employing'the labouring poor, and thus tends to degrade the Condition, to demoralise the habits, and to destroy the in, dependence of the labourer, as well as to aggravate the over- whelming pressure of the Poors* Riles. 7. That the landed property of England is burthened ex- clusively with the support of the unemployed poor, with the maintenance of our church, and with various charges to- which oilier property is exempt; whilst, on the contrary, most of the, branches of our national industry enioy immunities and pro- tection, from which the agriculturists are excluded. Under this double inequality they find it impossible to bear that! amount of taxation which is demanded from thetn, on account ofthe civil at} d military establishments of Government, and of the inierest of the national debt, 8. That the expences of the Government ought to be re- duced immediately,' and to the lowest scale possible ; not ^ nere- i ly by the dismissal of inferior clerks, but by the abolition of all unnecessary places, aud by large reductions in the charges upon' the civil list, as well as in all otlicial salaries, and in the ex- pellees of the army, ordnance, colonies, collection of taxes, and other branches ; and, if possible, so to regulate the finan- j ^ ces of the kingdom, that the gross amount of taxation may be lowered in as large a proportion as the difference in- value be-' tween- our preseht currency and that of the depreciated paper, in which the greater part of our debt has been contracted. 9. That these resolutions be embodied in a petition to the Commons Utilise of Parliament, conveying our strong but re- spectful solicitations, that its attention maybe given, without delay, to this most important subject, and that effectual mea- sures may be adopted for the relief and protect ion of the owners, occupiers, and labourers of tl^ land, as well as of the other profitable classes of the British people. Mr. Grigby, attributed the distress to excessive taxa- tion, to support. wars that had not been called for, and a profligate expenditure: he would, therefore,'. propose;• an additional resolution, as follows : ** That to the want of control over the public purse, which a Parliament freely elected would exercise, we attribute the i origin of our present distresses. And therefore it is - necessary I that the attention of the Commons House of Parliament be di- rected to effect an immediate reform in the representation as the only means of saving what remains of our property of pre- serving the tranquillity, and insuring ihe liberties of the country." Considerable discussion took place as to the propriety : of putting this resolution to the vote: which it was con- tended involved a . subject not stated in thc requisition ; and after much clamorous altercation, the High Sheriff positively refused, to put it; but said if a requisition, em- bracing the subject of Parliamentary Reform, wcrt pre- sented to him, he would appoint another meeting to be held forthwith. This was immediately done, and the second meeting having been regularly convened, Mr. Grigbv's resolution was carried with three cheers. It was then unanimously resolved, that tlie resolutions should be embodied in a petition to the House of Com- mons ; and tlianks having been voted to the High Sheriff, to the Dukes of Norfolk and Grafton, and the other Noblemeu and Gentlemen who had forwarded the objects of the meeting, the High Sheriff declared the business of the day concluded. NORFOLK FOX DINNER. Thc annual dinner to celebrate the Anniversary of the Birth- day of Mr. Fox, was held oil Thursday, at the Assembly Rooms, Norwich. So great was the anxiety of the Gentlemen of the Coiintv and City to be present on this occasion, that applications for tickets. were made several weeks hack, but as the Assembly Rooms could dine no more than 2.30 persons, the issue of tickets was restricted to that number ; the consequence of which was, that upwards of one hundred Gentlemen who wished to be present were excluded from the diaper. The Earl of ALBEMARLE having taken the Chair, supported on the right by the Duke of Sussex, and on the left by the Duke of Norfolk, the party sat down to an excellent dinner. Thc cloth having been removed, " Noil Nobis Domine' was sung. The Earl of ALBEMARLE rose. He said, if he had before expressed his satisfaction at seeing such multitudes of enlightened and respectable yeomen, he felt particu- larly gratified at seeing them all again assembled there, as high in spirits, though much lower in pocket. lie felt the pressure of the times himself, and was bold to say there was not a man who did not. He knew not how others felt; but for his own part lie felt the highest indignation against the authors of the calamities of the country. We were told that thanks were due to " the Pilot that weathered thc storm." He had made a slip ; he begged pardon— for he should have said the pilot who gathered the storm. It was to him, and to the wicked and accursed wars in which the country had been engag- ed through his means, we owed all the distress and cala- mity under which the Country suffered. But we were not to grumble, because by these means we were told the liberty of Europe- had been secured— the Constitu- tion of the country had been preserved— and the liber- ties of the people secured. But he would ask, is Great Britain by these wars more respected abroad ? is she more happy at home? is the confidence in the Govern- ment more securely established? » He would answer no. The only consequence of those wars was, the establish- ment of the Holy Alliance, the placing of Louis the Eighteenth oil the Throne of France— Ferdinand on that of Spain. It was, in fact, the triumph of legitimacy over the rights and liberties of the people. This was what the pilot who gathered the storm had done for us, and to him all the distresses and calamities ofthe country were to- be attributed, ( applause.) But it was not only to the pilot who gathered the storm, but to the crew who succeeded him, that the country was indebted for its misfortunes and distresses. It was said that they were inferior in talent and abilities. lie believed it might be so, for of late years talent had not by any means been a requisite for obtaining a situation in his Majesty's Councils : but if by talent was meant ability to do mis- chief thev had it with a vengeance. But when the situa- tion of the country was ! oiked to, it appeared that thc storm was now so completely gathered by the pilot and his crew, that scarce a plai. lf was left of the vessel. In . speaking ofthe late Mr. Fox, he could not avoid pay ing a just, tribute of respect to the excellence of his heart — the beautiful benevolence ofh is nnnd, and the perfect and upright consistency of iris conduct. If others who now ( ill the situation which he ought to have filled, hai , had the slightest spark of his benevolence, that blot on i the character of the country, the Manchester massacre, would never liavo taken pis r Reform were Jacobins. He ( the Duke of Sussex) then denied the Noble Lord's assertion, and challenged hi at to meet thc friends of Reform and see then which were the real and best friends of order and the Constitution—^( Hear, hear.) His Royal Highness concluded by expressing his cordial coheurreiic'c in the opun3nsoT the Yilorifanry of'the county of Norfolk, and his thanks to that Meeting for the kindness which they had shown him—(- Loud ap- plause.) The CHAIRMAN then proposed— " The respectability ofthe Crown, the durability of the Con- stitution, and the prosperity ofthe People and it was follow- ed by—' The cause for which Hampden bled in the field, and Sidney on the Scaffold."— Drank with three times three. ' The CHAIRMAN next gave— Their worthy and long- tried Representative, Mr, Coke.'* —( Loud cheering.) Mr. COKE, in returning thanks, expressed the delight; and gratification which he'injoyed on the present occa- sion.-— He was proud that on an occasion so dear to his feelings, they were honoured bv the presence of so illus- trious a guest as the Royal Duke who sat near him. Mr, Fox was an Englishman of frank dealing and plain speaking with his countrymen ; he was a m in ofthe most unbounded benevolence, the firm friend of civil and religious liberty all over the world, and the determined opponent of tyranny and corruption in every shape.— ( Hear, hear.) Mr. Fox had used his greatest energies' to avert fiom this country the calamitous war with France against the efforts of the people to assert their liberties ; but Ins counsels, unfortunately for mankind, had not prevailed. Let, then, the haters ofthe liberties of man- kind rejoice at the success of their schemes : let them take the " lorv of which thev talked so much, and with it the taxation, which was the price ofthat glory ( Hear, hear,' he'ar.) ITS had Still hopes that the energ es of the people would compel even the present Ministers toi be less' prodigal. Unless some speedy step were taken, it would be difficult to preserve the country from ruin and destruction. He hoped, however, that something! might vet be done, and tli. it the example of one revolu- tion, would not l » e productive of another.—( Hear, hear.) 1 " he Hon. Member then glanced at the proceedings of their late County Meeting, and was glad that thev had the credit of being the first to come forward and speak out upon the real situation of the country. He knew' that there had been other Meetings got up and put' down in holes and corners. A Noble Lord had said at one of theiu ( we believe the- Sussex Meeting), that taxation was a great blessing". ' ( A Laugh).. In Suffolk another' Noble Lord recommended the farmers to go home, for that they could do no 110 good by calling County Meet- ings. A Meeting was intended, in. Kent, but it was suppressed : every step > vas . taken to. prevent theexpres sion of the public sentiments He would here treat them with an extract, from an excellent pamphlct which lie had only letreived that morning." It was called " liemarks upon th flats Session of Parliament, by a Near Observer." Hie passage to wliiih he should first call their attention was the following, in which Mr. Gooch avowed himself ready to do justice to Mr. Hume. The p. issage was ! this—" Here he ( Mr,. Gooch) must observe, that, much as he differed in opinion and politics from th& Member for Aberdeen, Mr. Hume, he thought lie had bv his indefatigable industry and valuable exertions done great service to the country.- - He did not- say this from anv wish for popularity— iTe'owed it to his constituents to say tills, knowing it to be their sentiments ; and he could not return to them without having said it." There was another passage in the same pamphlet, which, as it re- lated to the Parliamentary efforts of a great ancestor of his own, Lord Coke, he could not refrain from the grati- fication of- quoting, leaving it. to the Meeting to hpplv it as they pleased, TIrtrquotSTioh frotn the speech of Lord Coke's was as follows :—•'" What shall we do ? Let us palliate nOionger ; if we do, God will not pros- per us. I think the Duke of Buckingham is the cause of all our miseries—( applause and laughter); and till the King be informed thereof, we shall never go out with honour, ' or sit with honour here. That man is the grievance of grievances. Let 113 set down the cause of ail our disasters, and all will reflect upon him." How personal the Lord Chief Justice would have been con- sidered had he been in Parliament in our times. These arc the specimens of what an English House of Commons has been— the model of what it should'he. What a. contrast they present to a modern Ministerial, Pension making Committee.—-( Great Applause). The Hon. Member then proceeded to state, that nothing but the united voice . of the people would compel Ministers to observe a rigid system Of economy and retrenchment. They would urge every excuse to keep up the establish- ments which were the source of their patronage. The late melancholy atrocities in Ireland might have liecn prevented, had the Government paid timely attention to the state of the people ofthat oppressed country. But the Government had no wish to redress grievances ; they were rather anxious, as the result showed, to aggravate them, bv keeping, tip a large Military Establishment. He hoped their measures would be defeated, and tliat the great principles of Mr. Fox would ultimately prevail. He had already told them that these were the sentiments which had hitherto. governed the public life, and they were those to the dissemination of which his latest breath should be devoted ( Cheers.) The company did not break up till near one o'clock. ainmifrin , • fOpiIGN INTELLIGENCE. FROM FRENCH PAPERS. The Paris journals are taken up entirely with the pro- ceedings of the Chamber of Deputies on the law for re- gulating the press. The debate was most tumultuous ; at times the clamour was so great as entirely to suspend the discussion. In the end, however, the measure was carried. Sonje amendments were proposed by the left side, but thov were all rejected, and when the question was put by the President, on the sftcond article, the whole of the Members on that side rose and quitted the Chamber, so that the remai ning Members of course car- ried it by an unanimous vote. The third article was then put immediately to the vote, and carried, it appears, bv the same undisturbed majority; the minority quitting the Chamber, that they might not sanction, bv their presence, tlie passing of such a law. The Chamber then immediately adjourned till Monday. ' Alarming rumours, it appears, are spraad in Paris of commotions in Brest, and it was added that two regi- ments of marines, and one regiment of infantry of the line, had hoisted the standard of revolt. It was not be- lieved, however,' that the matter Was sb serious as at first represented, and Government have in the mean time adopted all the necessary measures for repressing any disturbance. PARIS, Jan. 29— In addition to the insurrection at Brest, a simultaneous attempt was made by a part of the garrison of Rochefort; two hundred of whom left it ou the same night that their coadjutors of Brest endea- voured to possess themselves; of the principal fort. This detachment proceeded to Soubise, on the coast, when tile tri- coloured flag was displayed, and whence emissaries were seat to Bonrdeaux, and other places. At Brest, a misunderstanding amongst the principal leaders is said to have nqw prevented the success of the project. The spirit and determination manifested bv the inhabitants of that important place, have thiwn the Court and Mi- nisters into the greatest, consternation ; both have, in fact, recognised the impossibility of putting this epirit down. Two legions have already been marched! from Paris towards Brittany ; but, from the gccerai state.'- of the departments, there is no - kntjwjng where to provide ivgains't what is aiilost. inevitable, ilia ojnliiirrassiittet of those who have taken the reins of Government iiit.- their hands is much increased, in consequence ofa report * made to the King on Monday, by \ ictor, the Minister of War, who told his Majesty that, after a careful exa- mination and minute inquiry, the fidelity of the troops could, not be relied on, as they wera all Carbonmrise ; , this was the phrase. The circumstance which occurred in the Chamuerof Deputies yesterday, when all the Mem- bers of the Caie galicke left the House without voting, will give a better idea Of the state of things than volumes:' This is a most important event; and. following the mo. meijtous discussion of Thursday, will, it is supp lied, create a powerful sensation throughout France. Chat, auhriand is so well convinced that his Colleagues can- not stand, that he has. told - them so., and hail si violcnU quarrel with his sworn friend, Montmorenev. It was on the 17th, that the Note of Alexander readied this,' expressinghisregret at the lateclemge-, and plniily telliivr Lou's, that- whatever might be the result, he would not consider himself as bound to interfere hgain irf. any dis- pute which might arise between the Bourbons and France. This reorientation gave rise to a letter from Monsieur to the Minister of Justice, begging that he would act with the utmost mildness towards those arrest- ed at Belf'ort, Brest, and other places. Great fears arc entertained ! es. t something. should occur at Paris to em- barrass the Mcmbtrs ofthe new Government. The police are on the alert night and day.

Letters from Madrid, dated the 1 1th January, n « -.' noutice the important fact that the whole of And'alusuB had returned to its duty, and submitted to the GoveraB ment of the King and Cortes. This fortunate. termina- tion of a resistance which threatened Spain with a (' iviV war, and the throne w uhjaiiii, was eff cted at Seville by the change which Ferdinand had at last consented ti* make in his administration. As early as the 12th . T. m. the Commandant of Seville informed Mr. Albistu, who had been appointed Political Chief of that city, that all the obstaclesiwhich had hitherto prevented its submis- sion were removed, and that he would lie received within its walls to fulfil his functions, without auv other at?' thority than that of the law. The submission of Cadiz took place about the same time, though the intelligence was only communicated to the Cortes in their sitting of the 1 tth, in a dispatch signed by Jauregnl himself. He liad resigned his command into the hands of General llomaratc, whdrrf tlie Government had appointed to succeed him, declaring stt the same time that he would have done so sooner, had he not feared to compromise the tranquillity ofthe province. Tin.- party of agitators, who had proclamieddisobedience to the Government, say the letters, " is now ascertained to have been small, and it is the general sentiment of the people, tired by tlie excesses daily committed, which has forocd them tu th* only alternative-— tMat of obeying." FROM GERMAN PAPERS. Brussels papers contain the usual reports as to Turkey and Russia, which it is not worth while now to repe rr. i ntelligence, it is said, had also been received from Biej- dad, that hostilities had ceased with the Persians. BERLIN, January 8— Three students ofthe names of'Bandemer, Krebs,' and Koch, had conceived the bold plan of forming a band of robbers in Italy, and for this- purpose/ had already persuaded a number ofstudent3, be- tween 17 and 19. years of age, to accompany theat thither. By various robberies and burglaries, they hai already got. together - tOO rix dollars, which sum was found in the possession of Koch. Bjiiikmer, a youn » man of a liad character, was to be captain of the pra • posed hand, and they were, to set out a) soon as, they had got together 4000 dollars, which they had hopes < if accomplishing in a short time. This plat, which woul. l have plunged many parents into affliction, whose sous were engaged in the plot was happily discovered. Koch and Krebs l( jwe been txpellcd from the Gvnmaalam, at Joachimstlml, but received into another, where they are placed under strict superintendence. Bandemer has dis- appeared, and is sought after by the Police, on account of robberies since committed. It is well known th:;& Professor Jahn, among his gymnastic exercises, intro- duced a game which he " called " The Banditti aud the l'ravellers.' Some persons suppose that this gamesi* much leased the students in question, that tlicy resolv- ed to practise it in earliest. JA NDARY S,— A sudden indisposition ofthe Prince Chancellor of State excited great alarm ; which, how- ever, is now removed, as the danger is past. The pub- lic confidence is so intimately connected with thc Princs Chancellor, that the remotest apprehension ofa change has a great effect on the people's minds. It is with jus- tice that the life ofthe Chancellor is looked upon us one tnat wokld be irreparable at, this moment, when' Europe is on the eve of great events, and the weight which Prus- sia has in the political scale must contribute to the decisive result. The change which has lately taken place in the Ministry of a great foreign power is the more deserving of the attention of ad, the other powers, sis the language held, in the. address to thc Sovereign which led to thin change was far from expressing those principles of pcace and moderation which . might well have been expected V> be permanent, after so much melancholy experience of the illusion of a false glory, In the internal fr. hmmsrra- « tion, the Prince Chancellor has hitherto understood tiw difficult arrof introducing improvements anJ correction? gradually, without violent innovations, and, as it were, arising of themselves as necestary* consequences of the wants of the moment; and he ]> ossessed at the same time an unequalled talent of conciliation, in uniting the vari- ous interests which, in a state without great constitu- tional bodies especially, cross each other ia the highest departments of the Administration. AMERICA. $ c. Letters and papers have arrived from Buenos Avrcs to the 20tfl October. Tlie fall of Lima had produced a very animating elr. ct upon trade there, and n great num- ber of vessels had been dispatched thither with cargoes, in the full expectation of large profits. We were pre viously informed that the Government of Buenos Ayres, by a decree of the 6th October, had recalled ail letters of marque arid reprisal, and the almost immediate cousc- quence had been, the disappearance of privateers from the neighbourhood of the River Plate. This fact is given on the authority ofthe Agent at Lbvd's Coffee- house. Tranquillity prevailed at Buenos Ayres, end no ne\ » attempt had been . made to destroy the authority of the Director Rodriguez. The- military force under" hia- orders was extremely small, but Suwicieut to protect the place from attack. " . The Natcfies has arrived in the ' Civile from New- York, in twenty- two days, but brings no news.

' Intelligence of rattier an alarming. natnre, as respccta the ijew British Settlement at .:\! gon' Bay, has- been re- ceived in London. It is coiiimiinicated, in letters of the 14th November from the Cape of Gopd Hope.

Such are all the particulars \ l> 3t are at prcsept known ; but as no act of aggression - Juts vet been attempted by the savages, some hopes are entertained that matters'may yet be accommodated— The arrival ofthe next intelligence from the Cape will of • couree be looked for with uiixiety.

LONDON, Fi b. 2. The preparations for opening the - approaching Session Af Parliament are ryow nearly completed. Iiis Majesty will go down to the House of Peers in person, and deliver a speech from the Throne. This being the first. instance of iiis Majesty meeting his Parliament since thq Corona- tion, every form necessary to add to the dignity And im- portance of the occasion will be observed. His Majesty will take his seat on the Throne in his lull Robes of State, and will wear his Crown. The Earl of Roden is said to be the Nobleman ap- pointed to move the Address to his Majesty in the House of Lords, on the opening ofthe Session of Par- liament on Tuesday next. It is understood that Mr. R. Clive, Member for f Ludlow, will be the mover, and Mi;. C. Duncombe, Member for Nevrpoit, Isle of Wight, the seconder, of the Address, in echo to the Speech on the first day of Parliament. His Majesty's acccssion was celebrated on Tuesday by a grand dinner at the London Tavern, Sir W. Curtis, Bart, in the chair, at which it was resolved to continue the meeting annually. The Goldsmith's Company also gave a grand dinner at their hall, at which the Lord Chancellor, Lord Stowell, and many other distinguished . characters were present. COURT OF COMMON COUNCIL. Yesterday a Court of- Common Council was held, which was made , special, for the purpose of receiving the report oi the Committee of General Purposes, relative to the inquiry into the disturbance at Knightsbridge, on the ' 21st Au- gust 1821, which having been read, Mr. Favell moved a resolution, that the Court approve of the report, and also a resolution grounded upon the report, stating, that the. Court viewed with concern and alarm the many fright- ful attempts his Majesty's Government made to supersede the civil authority by military power, and deemed it ne- cessary to present a petition to Parliament, praying them to cause an investigation to be made in the whole of tiie circumstances mentioned in the report.— Mr. Eicke se- conded the motion, which after some discussion, was agreed to without a division. It is reported in the political circles, that the Mar- quis of Waterford is to be created an Irish Duke. Wednesday and Thursday, Cabinet Councils were It eld at the Foreign Office 111 Downing Street, which were Attended by all the Cabinet Ministers, except that Yesterday the Duke of Wellington was rot present. The Cabinet Council on Wednesday assembled at half past two o'clock, and broke up about four. The Ca- binet Council of yesterday was unexpectedly summoned. The Marquis of Londonderry having left town after the separating of the Cabinet Ministers 011 Wednesday, the Noble Marquis sent orders at a very early hour yesterday morning, to summon the Cabinet Council, from his seat at North Cray, in Kent. The Cabinet assembled in the Foreign Office at half past two o'clock, and continued in deliberation about an hour. The Right Hon. Nicholas Vansittart was on Wed- nesday night admitted a Fellow of the Society of Anti- quaries, into which learned body he was elected 011 Thursday se'ennight. The Earl of Aberdeen, the President, was in the Chair. The Clerkship of the Pells was held by the late Col. Barrc, who was blind for many years, and upon his death, the virtuous Mr. Addingtnn, being Minister, presented it to his son, no doubt for his public services. Lord Sidmouth, we are told, enjoys 30001. a- year as Ex- Speaker. The Courier of the 29th takes occasion to animad- vert upon the conduct of the Duke of Leinster for his refusal to preside at a dinner to celebrate his Majesty's Accession, upon the grounds of the clemency and for- bearance shewn by the late King to his family. If this claim of gratitude is correct, surety he could not shew liis sense of it more strongly than by refusing to cele- brate the death of his benefactor, The same sense of the loss we must always deplore of the " best of Kings seems to have guided the Royal Family and the Minis- ters of State ; they wisely and considerately abstained from attending those drunken revels— those feats were reserved for men like Sir Wm Curtis or Mr. Secretary Murray. They did not reflect that while they were shouting and revelling for an eveot which took place two years ago, at about tlie same time the corpse of their late Sovereign, whom they pretended to adore during life. w;) s not vet cold. The Fox Club, on the 24th January, unanimously voted that a monument should be erected to the memory of the late Mr. PERRY, for his faithful exertions in the cause of the people, and for his constant and uniform adherence to the principles of Mr. Fox. A vessel has arrived at Liverpool from Buenos Ayres, frith letters to 30th October, ten days later than the advices previously received from the same quarter; but thev do not contain any political news. Order and tran- quillity prevailed, and the affairs of the Government were gradually becoming more organised. The markets • were glutted with merchandize, which had induced seve ral English houses established' there, to send cargoes round Cape Horn, to Chili and Peru, and this circum- stance will no doubt add to the dilemma of the many speculators who already swarm on all the shores of the Pacific. ' i'. io Lords Lieutenant of Ireland- since the Union are, Earl of Hardwick, Duke of Bedford, Duke of Rich- mond, Viscount Whitworth, Earl Talbot, and Marquis Wellcsley. It appears that they enjoyed the same power as their predecessors, of conferring the hpnourof knight- Iiood, cud that there is no flaw in the title of the gentle- men who received that honour from their hands, as re- port lately stated. The order adopted by the House of Commons last session, requiring the estimates for the service of the year to be laid upon the table within fourteen davs after the meeting of parliament, will be found particularly ad- vantageous in the ensuing session. It is very desirable that the members should be apprised as early as possible of the extent to which the ministers propose to carrv the. r intended reductions. Upon this point will depend, in a grfnt measure, the future conduct of the indepen- de t members during the remainder ofthe session. Thev wi'' l have an early opportunity not only of proving the sincerity of the prbmisia Jicld o. d fp the country by tbc ministers of die crown, but they will also be enabled to see, at one view, the total aniouut of the supplies re- quired bv tho government, and to compare it with the ways and means which, to their own knowledge, the country may be fairly able to afford. - There have been some serious riots in the woollen' clothing districts of Wiltshire, where great numbers of the weavers have struck work for an advance of wages,! and, Congregating together in large bodies, have taken! ' on co r? , ' the work from the looms, and in some instances have de- 1 stroyed the latter. Some ofthe volunteers in the neigh bourhood have been called out, and about a score of the; ringleaders in the disturbances have been lodged in Devizes Bridewell, happily without bloodshed. Many ofthe rioters have been held to bail. WESLEYAN MISSIONS.— By the Report lately made at the meeting of Missions conducted by the Parent Society, it appeared that the Society have extensive Missions in the West Indies among the negroes, in Ceylon and Continental India, in West and South Africa, New South Wales," Van Diemcn's Land, nnd other parts of the world. It was stated that the Society employs in this work one hundred and fifty Missionaries, independent of Cateehists and other subordinate agents ; and ( hat the number of persons connected with them in religious society on the above Missions, is upwards of 28,000, who, for the most part, have been converted from Paganism. Tho number of children taught the principles of Christianity and useful knowledge in the schools connected with those Missions, and superintend- ed bv the Missionaries, was stated to be in the island of Ceylon 5000 ; in the West Indies, 4227 ; and in the island of Newfoundland, 987. The contributions to the Parent Society were last year upwards of £ 26,000, being upwards of £ 2000 more than had been raised for these benevolent purposes in anv former year ; but still leaving, the general treasury considerably in advance owing to the extent of the Society's operations. THE PAVILION AT BRIGHTON.— Some time ago we gave a familiar illustration by Cobbett of the Map of Italy. That gentleman follows the same mode in his ar- chitectural descriptions as in his geographical, as witness the following :— " Brighton is a very pleasant place, The Kremlin, the very name of which has so long been a subject of laughter all over the country, lies in the gorge of the valley, and amongst the old houses ofthe town. The grounds, which cannot, I think, exceed a couple or three acres, are surrounded by a wall neither lofty nor good- looking. Above this rise some trees, bad in sorts, stun- ed in growth, and dirty with smoke. As to the " palace," as the Brighton newspapers call it, the apart- ments appear to be all upon the ground floor ; and when you see the thing from a distance, you think you see a parcel oi' cradle spits, of various dimensions sticking up out of the mouths of so many enormous squat decanters. Take a square box, the sides of which are three feet and a half, and the height a foot aud a half. Take a large Norfolk turnip, cut off the green ofthe leaves, leave 3 stalks nine inches long, tie these'round with a string t& ree inches from the top, and put the turnip on the middle of the top of the box. Then take four turnips of half the size, treat them in the same way, and put thein on the corners of the box. Then take a considerable number of bulbs of the crown imperial, the narcissus, the hyacinth, the tulip, the crocus, and others, let the leaves of each have spouted to about an inch, more or less ac- cording to the size of the bnlb ; put all these pretty pro- miscuously but pretty thickly on the top of the box. Then stand off and look at your architecture. There 1 That's " a Kremlin." Only you must cut some church- looking windows in the sides ofthe box." A FORTUNE HUNTER. One of these minions of Cupid, being in a ball- room at Bath, heard a gentle- man giving an account ofthe death of a rich old widow, thus—" Died yesterday, in her 89th year," said the nar- rator. " V> hat a pity !" exclaimed the fortune- hunter, " what a fine match she would have made two days ago!" IRELAND. The Whiteboys of the south are carrying their lawless measures to an alarming extent. They have attacked the mail coach, and murdered several persons. They have resisted small parties ofthe military, for a moment, and, exclusively of prisoners, many pf them have been killed and wounded.. The deluded creatures have plung- ed themselves into an awful state of frenzy and despera- tion ; but the soldiers are numerous, the gentry are ac- tive, and the law is powerful. The Special Commis- sion for the county of Cork will be opened in a few days. Through a private channel we are enabled to' give, the following authentic particulars pf the attack on the mail coach. The coach. lcft Cork at five o'clock on the morn- ing of the 25th, and was attacked by a large body of the insurgents at Carrignamana", about five miles beyond Macroom. The coachman was severely wounded with a pike, and the guard also in the head by a musket shot. Three ofthe horses were piked, and the fourth was carri- ed off by the assailants; the coach was thrown into a bogbole. The bags missing are those of Mill Street, . Killaraey, and Tralee bye, with Mill Street and Kill- arnev, Dublin. Bv letters received this morning, we learn that the road was dug up in many parts between Mill Street and Killarney, and the coach could not pro- ceed in that direction further than the former place.— Dublin Journal, Jan. 28. ANOTHER HORRIBLE OUTRAGE. The newspapers received this day from Cork confirm what we stated on last Saturday respecting the insurrec- tionary outrages of a part of the peasantry in the county of Cork. In addition tci those frightful details, which, at the same moment, disclose the ferocity and the folly of those infatuated wretches who attempt to resist the laws, we are under the necessity of stating another instance of their infuriated cruelty. In consequence of the non - arrival on Thursday even- ing in Tralee of the mail coach from Cork,, it was de- termined to send the mail coach from Tralee to . Cork, on Friday morning, by a special messenger. Accord- ingly, a Mr. Brereton, head clerk to the proprietor of the mail coach, set out from Tralee, on Friday morning, at six o'clock, on horseback, with the mail bags and at- tended by one of the assistants belonging to the office.— On their arrival at a place called Tuckbeg, which is si- tuate about 12 miles beyond Killarney, 011 the road to Cork, they were surrounded by a numerous party ofthe insurgents, who commenced their horrible outrages bv o . o mortally wounding the horse on which Mr. Brereton rode. Tlity then dragged the . unfortunate man to the ground, and'after having wounded him in several places with bayonets and pikeS, finished the atrocious crime by severing his head from his body with the blow of a sevthe affixed to a pole, or billet of wood. The person who had accompanied him was taken prisoner; but in the confu- sion of the moment, he was so fortunate as to make his escape. He brought the first account of this horrible act to Tralee. We have seen several letters which were received in town this day, and which relate the circumstance in the same way. A letter, too, has been received by the Postmasteis- General, which confirms the melancholy account given us as above.— Correspondent. SERIOUS AFFAIR. We learn with great affliction, that there has been a most serious affair between the military and insurgents, near Kanturk. The troops were commanded by Gene- ral Sir John Lambert. It is stated in letters that we have seen, that the insurgents had thirteen men killed ; and it is said that the army also suffered, but not so considerably. We wait with the greatest anxiety for farther particulars. The country between Mill Street and Macroom may be said to be in possession ofthe in- We We just learned! bat aii afer las occuVreq in the neighbourhood of Mil Street, between the peasan- try and a part ofthe rifle brigade, probably that referr- ed to in the preceding report. The peasantry attacked the houSe of a mail ofthe name of Al'mit. While the attack going m, a party of the rifle brigade came u]). The peasantry retreated ; but, on the signal given, rushed down the hill. The military fired— killed six—•' the remainder fled in disorder; and thirty are stated to have been made prisoners. Dublin • Evening Pott,: Jan. • Accounts from Dublin are of tho 30th, and from Cork ofthe 28th ult. We are happy to find that the inhabitants ofthe parishes of Clondrohid and Kilmichael, near Macroom, where the late melancholy conflict took place between the insurgents and the military, Miave made a voluntary offer to surrender their arms, and take the oath of allegiance, which has been adcepted- by General1 Sir John Lambert. These parishes embrace a large population, and great hopes are entertained that their example will be imitated by the neighbouring parishes. This appears the only bright speck in the horizon ofthe south of Ireland. With this exception, all the rest 6f the news is gloomv. The peasantry in the mountainous and difficult parts of the county of Cork appear to he in open insurrection, and in Limerick at'd I ipperary, - al though not violently agitated, some fresh outrages have been committed.. In the course of the present month the Special Commission again commenced its operations in Limerick, ft will then sit in Kerry, Cork, and per- haps Tippsrary. There has been, unfortunately, a large increase of crime since its adjournment. MARKETS, S> c. AVERAGE PRICES OF CORN.

C'awthorn. from O. leisa to Penrtn, arrived in the Ouif of Spezia, 13th, ultimo, . with her cargo shifted, loss of bulwarks, maiutopniast, and jib- boom, and considerable damage in her sails and rigging.- OPORTO, January i4. — Such tremendous whatber has been experietw- ed during tlie montiis- of November and Decern- lic- r as was hariily ever remembered. This plaee has escaped, tolerably well, and the dam- age in the shipping dtiring. the lute heavy fresh in the river is very inconsiderable, compared to what was apprehended. Some . cables cut. and cordage des troyed. besides expellees of booms to keep the vessels from the quays, will, 1 believe, comprise the loss sustained." The George, Tanner, of Liverponl, was lost on the rocks of Bald Cape, near St. Mary's, Africa, 27th November.— Crew and part ofthe cargo saved. The Young Arion, Clevering, from St. Mary's ( Africa). to London, was lost on the Red Bank, near St. Mary's, 8th Dec. Crew and a small part of the cargo saved. The Rufus King, from Liverpool to New York, put into Halifax 26th December, very leaky, and with loss of fore- mast, The Maria, Joues, from Bristol to Liverpool, struck upon a rock near the Holmes 23d ult. and broke her keel. Cargo discharging. The Lady Kinntprd, Chapman, from Dundee to London, lately ran on shore on some rocks near Holy Island, and it was feared would be totally wrecked. The East India Company's ship 1 nglis left Bombay for China, on the 24th of July, and the Marquis Camden, Charles Grant, and Kent, on the 29th of the same month. The Waterloo arrived at Bombay on the 22d of July, and was expected to proceed on her voyage to China about the 22d of August. On Monday the Hind sloop of war, Sir Charles Burrard, Baronet, returned from New York. She arrived there on the 25th December, and sailed on tho 2d January.— The sum recovered from Tweedie was 18,000/. and this was effected by intimidation. Within an hour and a half after the arrival of the Hind by the vigilance of the British Consul, and the offer of 500 dollars to the Miigrst^ ftes, Tweedie was traced to his lodgings, and tile option offered him of either being sent on board the Hind or giving up the money; he acted upon tile latter, the amount being in bills. On the following day to that on which the money was restored, the American Judges said, if they had been consulted, they would have contended against the right of exacting the money from him in that country : the Government would not permit Ins person to be given up. The Hindi s come into Portsmouth harbour. EDINBURGH, FeB. HIGH COURT OF JUSTICIARY. Yesterday, Robert Dundas, Esq. of Arniston, was sworn to discharge the officeof A'qyocate- Depute. John Douglas and Matthew Adie were placed at the bar. These men were tried on the 13th July, anil found guilty nf robbing James Kirk, on the highway leading from Jock's Lodge to Edinburgh, of two shillings and a basket of eggs. After the verdict had been recorded, I. ord Meadowbank ob- served, that there was an anomaly in the manner of preparing it. The law. he said, in reference to the proceedings in this Court, required that where the Jury were unanimous, they should give in their verdict viua voce; but where any difference of opinion occurred, they were directed to give in a written verdict. In this case the verdict was partly written and part- ly printed. Me was not prepared to sav that it was an illegal verdict; but he thought the circunistalfces required the consi- deration of the Court, and he therefore moved that judgment should be deferred until the matter be discussed by the whole Bench. In this opinion the other Judges concurring, minutes were ordered to he given in, and the prisoners were now brought uj) for judgment. Mr. Cu lien, for the prisoners, with great clearness and ability, and at considerable length, argued that the verdict was not valid. Mr. Hope, also at great length, contended that the verdict was good, as the mere matter of form could be of no consequence when the Jury heard their verdict as recorded without expressing dissatisfaction. The Solicitor- Central fol- lowed on the same side. Their Lordships then delivered their opinions, Lord Gillies in the course of his observations said, that from the slovenly, irregular, and carelpss appearance ofthe verdict, bethought the Jury had not bestowed that attention on the case which its importance required. Lord Pitmilly, while he agreed in what fell from Lord Gillies as to theslovenly nature of ihe verdict, acquitted the Jury of inattention ; he thought the verdict a sufficient one, and that judgment ought to be pronounced upon it. Lord Meadowbank. although at the time he thought the point worth consideration, was now decidedly of opinion thai the verdict was good, The vote being taken. Lords Pitiuiliy, Succoth, and Meadowbarrk repelled the objection, which was sustained by Lords Hertnand and Gillies. The Lord Justice Clerk had no vote, but his Lordship expressed his opinion that no judgment ought to follow on such a verdict. Mr. Cullen then addressed the Court in mitigation of punish- ment. Sentence delayed till Monday next. Mary Bentlv, alias Bingley, alias Miller, was placed at the Bir, i barged with robbing John Alexander, of Linlithgow, of a pocket- book, containingbank- notes of tbc Commercial Bank to the" amount of L. 106' 8s. in or near Burthwick's Close, on the 28th ' of September ; Houston Cathie also stood charged with resetting the sauie, aad both with being habit and repute thieve-. The prisoner pleaded Not Guilty. On the motion of Mr. Constable, the trial was delayed till the 4th of March, that Informations may be given in. Joseph M'Farlane and Margaret Brown or Palmer, charg- ed with stealing various articles from the sln. lp of Mr. Spittal and others, on the South Bridge, pleaded Not Guilty. Owing to the late hour ( between three and four o'clock, v. M,), the Court continued the diet till Monday next. COURT OF SESSION.— SECOND DIVISION. On Saturday, Mr. Martin, agent for the heritors of the Abbey parish of Paisley, appeared at the bar, agreeably to an order'ofthe Court, and being examined, emitted a declaration regarding his connection with an article inserted in the Glas- gow Journal of 7th December last, lie stated that lie was ac- quainted with Mr. David Prentice, editor of that paper; saw him ina company in Paisley, about the time when the article in question was inserted, when Mr. Prentice asked him if the case, the poor. of the Abbey parish agaiiwt the heritors, was finished ; to wliich he ( Mr'. Martin) answered it was. This he said from the understanding he had of the situation of the par- ties in the process. The Court having asked Mr. Prentice If he visited Mr. Martin to be any further examined, and he having signified in the negative, tile Court dismissed that gentleman, obseHvIng tliat although it was necessary, from what had come out on a former examination, to call him before them, that they were satisfied no blame whatever could be attached to him. The Court then Agreed that this declaration, and the former ex- amination should be printed, and that Mr. Prentice should appear at the bar on Tuesday next ( to morrow), when he or his Counsel would have an opportunity of urging whatever they thought proper in his defence. The Candlesmus Term in the Court of Exchequer ended yesterday. On Saturday, the Hon. William Erskine, having finished his trials as Lord Probationer, took the usual oaths and his seat on the Bench, by the - title of Lord KINNEDDER. Lord Gillies is now one ofthe ordinary Judges in the First Division, anil is succeeded as per- manent Ordinary, iu the First Division, bv Lord Mea- dowbanlf. Lord Kinnedder is Ordinary on the Bills. In the line of Lord Balmuto, who lately resigned his situation as one of the Lords of Session, there are only four Judges, who have sat in direct succession to each other since the Revolution, viz.— Lord Fountainhall sat from 1689 till 172- 1 35 years Succeeded by Lord Milton, who sat till 1 767 43 yeius Succeeded by I. ord Monboddo. who sat till 1799- 32 years Succeeded by Lord Balinulo, who sat till 1822—(- 23 years 133 years. The Annual Committee of the - Royal Burghs, at their meeting held here yesterday, unanimously agreed to present a memorial to tde Lords of the Treasury, pray- ing them to direct a Bill to be brought irtto Parliament for the continuation of the Bouiity oil Linens exported from this country, which will expire in July next, and for pkieing. the bleachers of linens in Great Britain on the same footing as to drawbacks and otherwise, with their brethren in Ireland. The weather the latter end of Last week was remark- ably tempestuous, particularly on Saturday, when the wind blew a perfect hurricane from the west. On the evening of that day a stack of chimnics fell oil the roof of a house in which the Jewish Synagogue is held, in East Richmond Street, but fortunately the tf ior of the upper story sustained the increase of weight, without any farther damage or loss of- life. i'he beautiful ves?. i the Surprise stevm boat, in attempting to cross from Largo to Leith, in the heavy gale of Friday, was forc- ed ashore ifear Leven.

J NVER^ ESS, Jan. 31— Between, Saturday night and Sunday morning a, large, tenement rip Mnrkiiich,. oCctii pied by six families, some of them riot of the fairest re- putation, . was burnt to the gfound ; and melancholy to relate two children, the. one a girl - of four. years old, nru( the other an infant boy of only 12 days old, perished in the flames, . These children belonged to a man - ofthe name of Cameron, commonlv known here " as the rich beggar." The hortie was slsothe property of the samq person, ho, if common fairie may be believed, has re- duced the art of begging and fortunertelling ton trade, regularly transmitting the spoils gleaned from the credu- lity or compassion of the peewit of the " south, to his head. i quarters in this town. The fire was discovered about ofte the morning by a person who was watching in th, church yard. Tho. alarm was iroim- diatelv, given, and ninny persons ciovvded to - tile spot, and smceee-.- d ii( dragging the sleeping inmates from their beds, and even in saving the furniture of the several' apartments, with the exception (>' f Cameron's, in whosc- foiim the fire ririgis nated By a well applied use of rite tire engines^ thy adjoining premises were saved.. Awjjng the many per- • sons who exerted themselves on this ocetialoo, we. cannot pass over the names of Serjeant Robertson, of . the Po- lice, Allan Eraser, painter, and John Brown; drift* of the mail coach. It is said, and we fear with too great truth, that Cameron's wife, after . die carousals which too often distinguish Saturday njght, had. gone to sleep in a state of deep iiitoxientioii—! tn# that- the flume- of it candle had communicated with tlic curtains of her becl. When roused from this slate, the wretched woman was still so uUerlvStnpifiediis lobe unabieto think ofthe dan- ger of the 3 i i tie- girl or the infant, and thus thev both perished tne victims of their mother's intemperance.— Throughout the Sunday a great croud of persons wtrj admitted to the scene ofthe tire. DUNDEE, Jail 31.— On Tuesday se'emiight a ir. fln named George Morrison, belonging to the Royal Sap- pers and Miners, presently lying at Plymouth Dock, ami Aim M'Dowall, wife pf'r, cordwaiuer in Plymouth, wu: t3 apprehended on board the smack Rose of tin's port on her arrival from London, in terms ofprevious instruction received from Bow Street Office ; the foniivr on a charge cr: desertion, and the latter for robbing a woman of £ 170. In her declaration M'Dowall adinitted that an American. woman, who had lodged, in her house, had entrusted her with a sum of money, the amount of which she did not know; and that having formed ah attach- ment for Morrison, she had prevailed on him to elope with her. Between L. 20 and L. 30 was fomid on' her person; but a bank bill for L. 100 has not been disco- vered. Morrison stated . that be was a native of St. Madoes, near Perth, and had wrought at one period ad a mason in Dundee; and that when he eloped with his chere amie, lie was intoxicated, and did not know she was a married woman, nor possessed of money to a great extent. Both prisoners have been remauded-' for farther examination. MAIL ROBBERY.— On the evening of Wednesday last, about ten o'clock, Alext Hopkirk, tli3 postman or carrier of the mail bags from Whitebanklec to Galashiel?, Melrose, and Earlstour,, . was robbed near Kiluknow, in the county of Selkirk, about a mile west from Gala, shiels, by a stranger whom he had met at Wbitebanklee, arid who accompanied him cjown the road, without ex citing any suspicions in the postriian till he readied thu spot where he committed the robbery ; and there sud- denly stopping Hopkirk, he presented a pistol, and threatened to blow out his brains if he did not instantly deliver ail up,, with which the. postman, an old mat!, was . obliged, very reluctantly, to comply, the robber having at same time stripped him of his plaid and coat which he wore at the time. An active search bein j set on foot, to which a large reward offered on the part of the Post- office stimulated, the robber was, after a lorn' and uninterrupted search of sixteen hours, and a pursuit of about forty miles, apprehended at Macks- miln, near Greenlaw, about four o'clock in the after- noon of the following day, by Robert Howden, weaver in Galashiels-, who had traced him from near that place. Thus the short space of eighteen hours only elapsed from the period, ofthe robbery till tile robber was in custody- an instance of zeal and activity which reflects the greatest credit on all concerned, the more particularly considering the mountainous and rugged country over which the robber was pursued, and the difficulty of procuring information in the dead of the night.— The robber is now lodged iu Jail here.

IT has licen a common practice in this country, When any considerable infringement upon the Constitution has been in contemplation; to spread abroad the most alarm- ing accounts of intended insurrections, of the prevalence of sedition and blasphemy, and in short to represent the country as completely demoralized, the public peace only to be preserved bv new and unprecedented restrictions of the Liberties of the people. While the Bill for the extinction of the Libcrtv of the Press in France is tinder discussion, we have accounts of insurrections, in many parts ofthe countrv ; are assured, that the tri- coloured cockade has been mounted by considerable bodies of the troops, who are said to be carbonarise ; and the infe- rence, we presume, thnt it is intended shall be drawn from all this is, that the strongest restrictions upon the liberty ofthe press are indispensiblv necessary, other- wise the countrv must be lost. That the Bourbon dynasty possess not the attachment of the French people is well known, and the soldiery cannot lie supposed insensible to the degradation of their country, the idea of which must ever remain inseparably connected with that of their return; but the rejiovts of organized insurrections break- ing out simultaneously in Brittany, and other parts of the countrv, are most probably ministerial fabrications, intended to alarm the timid, and reconcile them to the want of true information regarding passing events, as a lesser evil, or rather as something necessary to the pre servation of the public peace. It appears now certain, that those who oppose this infamous Bill will be out- voted in the Chamber of Deputies should they divide ; and it is therefore said to be their intention, to retire in a body every- time that a vote is proposed,- to mark in the strongest manner their detestation of a measure so ' unjust ; in itself, and so degrading to France. How soon the time mav come when the French people shall assert their rights, and take their proper place amongst the nation's of Europe, we pretend not to say ; at present, they are prosperous and happy in every respect, unless in the want of political liberty— and that they can obtain when- ever they see lit to make the necessary exertion. France has long since recovered from the efFects of the war, and has at present a population fit to bear arms, without reckoning, upon men past forty, of more than four mil- lions. We can only acquire accurate knowledge ofthe state of public opinion in France, and other nations of the Continent of Europe, by means of private letters from respectable individuals, or reports of travellers who have conversed with the people, and know their senti- ments. All that can be collccted from these sources indicates a great approaching change, for the people have gained so much information rtsjiecting their poli- tical rights, and the abuses of bad Governments, that they are no longer fit to remain the slaves of ignorant despots, who have so long ruled them by practising upon their credulity and their fears. The example of North America, it might be unwise in any European state to attempt to imitate at the present time ; but when the degree of liberty— the absolute freedom ofthe Press— the admirable political economy, and very mo- derate expenditure of the United States— are contrasted with European establishments— the effect produced upon the reflecting mind must necessarily he strong. We shall be enabled, in ottr next publication, to give an account ofthe opening of Parliament, and what busi- ness has first occupied its attention. The anticipation, however, we believe, may safely be formed, that Minis- ters will insist upon the flourishing and glorious circum- stances of the country, and ol course the inexpe. lience of Reform and Retrenchment. A Pamphlet has appear- ed under their sanction, which has been widely circu lated amongst their adherents, ( not a few of them w aver- ing) in order to furnish them with some show of common place argument, for still adhering to the Treasury Beuch during the ensiling Session. In the midst of the most irresistible evidence of general distress, arising from the most wasteful profusion, the Writer of this Pamphlet asserts, that our Finances, Foreign Relations, Ilom, Department, and Colonies, all, are in a state of un- exampled prosperity. The country has not only wea- thered the storm, but is now actually running before the wind, whose favouring breezes convcv it over the unruffled surface of the azure deep, and none but dis- contented and mutinous fellows dare say to the con- trary, A sy9tem of Retrenchment has gradually and silently been going on for many years, ( no thanks to Mr. HUME) and not a sixpence of the public money is un- necessarily or improperly expended. The following remarks, from this production, we copv from the Traveller of the 4th inst. Any other set of rulers than the present might, during all this interval of peace and improvement, have augmented the public debt— might have increased the army till they had oil foot a military force that might enable them to set public opinion at defiance— they might have squandered the public wealth on spies and- i^- cophants, have got up plots and conspi- racies for the purpose of furnishings pretext for increasing the power that was to protect us against them : — they might have depressed public trade and taxed private industry, till the far- mer flur. g aside his plough, and the mechanic fainted on his loom— lmving done all this, when the pressure of private suf- fering excited turbulence and discontent, they might have pu- nished a murmur as sedition, and indicted remonstrance as blasphemy. Ali this, and much more, we might have wit- nessed under another set of Ministers than those who have so long reigned over us, and who have made us so " happy and glorious;" that we have little left to do but to sit, " every man under his own vin » " and sing Jubilate. This writer sets out with informing us that " the Ministers of a free and bigh- u minded country cannot be without a due feeling for the " value of public character. That they ought not to be with- out it, we agree ; that they cannot, is a proposition to which we are not so ready to assent. We are of opinion, that they know quite as well— perhap., much better— the valueofpublicjintro* mrge t that they find it to weigh much heavier in the scale of power, and to be a mtuh better source of reliance towards get- ting a majority. With all their due feeling for tfie value of public character, we think, they have a much higher sense of the value of the Six Acts and an immense standing Army. " They know," proceed the Pamphleteer, " that in public station, still more than in private life, a good name is connect, ed with the due and effective performance of duties ; that cha- racter is influence, nnd that influence is power." Really this is mighty common place. Ministers may know that character is influence ; but they also know that the power of bestowing places, pensions, and sinecures— the creating Colonial ap- pointments with high salaries— the Array and Navy list— the immense^ eivstribution of offices under the Revenue ; they know- that all this is influence, » nd an influence which they would not exchange, tor any thing In the way of public churacttv.— That influence is power, is an abstract truism that is worth nothing. The influence arising from superior talent and tried integrity is certainly the great source of legitimate authority ; but what hasthis do with Ministers, or with " the state ofthe Nation at the courmencement of the year 1822 !!" When we look at what that really is, what is tiie lesson which it reads to other ministerial voters, whs Tiavc Lecn ViK- ly so myvli abashed at Couhtv Meetings, shall not be so far reassur- ed by this consolatory statement, as to go through their • usual and expected duty during the Session ! And why speak of Reform and Retrenchment, when it is obvious that none are necessary. The Noblemen and Gentle- men, the Yeomanry and Peasantry of F. ngland, all are deceived with regard to the real state of the country.— Ministers know it to be prosperous and thriving, and why should their adherents seek better authority ? STATE ol? IRELAND.— The reports concerning the actual state of the countrv, are still very contradictory ; but upon the whole, they arc more satisfactory than they were at the date of our last publication. A Coroner's inquest lias been held upon the body of the illicit distiller BUCKLEY ; but, by the last accounts, the Coroner's Jury had not given in their verdict. No discovery of arms collected by the peasantry has vet been made, and their plans remain undiscovered, at least lo the public. BIRTHS.— At, Lnngley Pari;, on the 30ih ult. the Rt. Hon.

MIRACULOUS ESCAPE.— The life of a well known character, an admirer of shell fish suppers, has been saved, by bis time- ously disgorging a quantity of Muscle Pearls; and he has thus, for the present, been saved much painful concern for his posterity; Our Envoy to the Court of Montrose returned some weeks ago. We are glad that the little difference between the Gentle, man just mentioned and him was made up ; for he does well to those that do ill, and in tiis cordial way, throws people off their guard. We think it our duty to state, lhat, on the oc- casion of his late Embassy, he abated 20 per cent, of his stipu- lated salary, much to his honour, and an example worthy imitation by all men inofficial situations. The mildness of the season has caused a surprising turn- out on ihe Beach. We have heard of marvellous effects pro- duced on a Genilepian by a dip En the sea ; and if this meet his eye, we hope he will be induced to make them known, for the benefit of w: akty members of society. Mr. W » * « * « begs the Mirror to refect, that Fools make feasts, for Wise Men to eat. them. 1? what is the appalling truth, which, like the baud- writing on the wall, is legible, to the alarm of every one ? It is this— that corrupt injluence also is power; and a power too that withers the energies of the country and brings its' prosperity to the dust. We have no room for lengthened comments ; we must content ourselves with merely suggesting to our readers, what will carry their own minds into a wider field of reflection, " Under these considerations," the writer adds, " bis Majesty's Ministers, for themselves, and their friends for them, must naturally desire to stand well in public opinion— they desire it for themselves, and they desire it for the country." " The time is gone by when this sort of puerility will pass muster. What would any man of common sense say in answer to this ? That Members may desire to stand well in public opinion, no doubt, becau- e to desire this costs nothing, but to deserve it is the praise. Ministers will naturally desire to stand well in public opinion, if they can at the same stand firnj in their places. This is what " they desire for themselves," as for the country, their great desire is that we seek no change," and that we 1 learn -' in whatever state we are therewiih to \> e content." t Strange- it must appear, if Mr. WonEIiovSE and We understand that the Lord Provost yesterday received a letter from Mr. Shearer of tbe General Post Office, informing him, that the intended alteration in the Dispatch of the Mails will t ike place, on or before tbe 18th inst. and according to the original plan bf the Post- master- General.

Issue of Tracts from the Depository of the Religious Tract Society, Aberdeen, ( or the Quarter preceding Feb. 2, 1822:- Tracts sold to Hawkers, to Members, & c. 301) 0 Tracts distributed among Sailors, & c. 7000 A singular stratagem was lately employed by some thieves, for* carrying into effect a scheme of depredation at a Farm House in a country parish. The Cattle from the Byres were all let loose, with the exception of one, by tbe bellowing of which the people, then in bed. were attracted to know the cause, when, with surprise and consternation, they discover- ed what had happened. The confusion arising from so oncx- pected a circumstance, and the time lost in seeking and bring- ing buck ihe entile, afforded the wished- fur opportunity of robbing the dwelling house, a suspicion of which prolrirljle de- sign striking the Good wife, she hastened back, and no doubt interrupted tbe proceedings of her unwelcome visitors; although, to her great mortification, she found they had succeeded in taking her husband's Watch, with which they escaped— and no trace of the depredators could be had, although a neighbour- ing wood w^ s quickly surrounded by a number of people, and diligent search made for that purpose. Last week, at Balfour of Durris, a farm servant in charge of a horse and cart was, in endeavouring to fbeck the horse, which had taken fright, struck by one of the shafts, and thrown down before one of the wheels, which passed over him— when he was taken up lifeless, the stroke which lirought him to the ground, being that which is supposed to have proved fatal. We understand tliut, by the death of the seamen and pilots, resident at Fraserburgh, who lost their fives there on the 25th ult. inhumanely endeavouring to save the crew of the Mary of Gardenstown, ( as noticed in last Chronicle) there have been left no fewer than eight widows, and twenty- three children, and, among the latter, thw is a family of six. almost aH in- fants, now rendered orphans. The situation of the afflicted survivors is truly distressing, nnj « nany of thenj are in an ex- tremely destitute condition, while they can derive no aid from tiie Shipwrecked Seaman's Fund at Aberdeen, A Subscrip- tion lias, in consequence, been set on foot, for thei! benefit, at Fraserburgh and other places adjacent; and, when the magni- tude and effects of the calamity are considered, it is to be hoped that a considerable amount will be raised. Any contribution, however small, will be thankfully receiv- ed by the Rev. Mr. Cumrning, at Fraserburgh, or by Mr. W. Simpson, Advocate, Aberdeen. Subscription Papers are also placed in the Athenaeum, Exchange News Rooms, and differ- ent Banking Offices in Aberdeen. ABERDEEN GRAIN MARKET, Friday. Feb. 8.

On his Majestv's entrance the Pceri, who wore their rolies, and of whom therfe were a very numerous attendance, together with the Peeresses, stool up, and the other usual forma having been observed, hij Majestv delivered the follow ing most gracious Sfiecch, la a firm ami audible voice :— Ills MAJESTY'S SPEECH. " My Lords end Ger. tleotrit, " I have the satisfaction of informing von, that I con- tinue to receive from Foreign Powers, the strongest as. suranccs of their friendly disposition towards this Coun- try. " It is impossible for me not to feel deeply interested in a « v event that mav have a tendency to disturb tin* peace of Europe. My endeavours have, therefore, Keen directed, in conjunction with my AiFies, to the settle- ment of the differences which have unfortunately arisen between the Court of St. Petersburg}! and the Ottoman. Porte ; aud I have reason to entertain hopes that these dillerenccs " ill !> e satisfactorily adjusted. " In mv late visit to Ireland, I derived the most sin « cere gratification from the loyalty and attachment mani- fested by all classes of my subjects. " With this impression, it must be matter pf tiie deepest concern to me, that a spirit of outrigc which has lei) to daring and systematic violations of the law hits- arisen, and till prevails in some parts of that countrv. " I am determined to use all the means in my power for the protection of the persons and proportv of IIIB- loyaLand peaceable subjects. And it will be for your immediate consideration, whether the existing laws are mlfieient for this purpose. " Notwithstanding this serious interruption of public tranquillity, I have the satisfaction of believing that my presence in Ireland has lic- en productive of very lier. efi- ciat effects, and all descriptions of my people mar can* fidently rely upon the just and equal administration of the laws, and upon my paternal solicitude for their wul- fare. " Gentlemen of the House of Car. imoTf, " It is very gratifying to me to be able to inform von, that during the last year the Revenue has exceeded that of the year preceding, and appears to be in a course of progressive improvement. " I have directed the Estimates of the current vcar to belaid before you. Thev hare been framed with cwrv attention to economy which the circumstances of tlje country will permit; and it will he satisfactory to yon ti » learn, that I have Leerf* ab! S*" lo m'alte a large reduction in our Annual Expenditure, particularly iu our Nav* I aod Military Establishments " My I. m- ds and Gentlemen, " I have the greatest pleasure in acquainting yso, tliat a considerable improvement has taken place in the coury. of the last year, in the Commerce and Manufactures of the United Kingdom, and that I con now state them to be, in tlicir important branches, in a very flourishirc condition. " I must at the same time deeply regret tlic depressed state ofthe Agricultural Interest. " The condition of an interest, so essentially connected with the prosperity of the country, will of course attrac* your early attention ; nnd I have ths fullest reliance on vour wisdom in the consideration of this important sub- ject. " I am persuaded, that, in whatever measures 70a may adopt, you will bear constantly in mind, that, iu the maintenance of our public credit, all the best interests of this Kingdom are e- jttallv involve!! ; and that it is by a steady adherence to that principle, that we have attain- ed, and can alone expect to preserve, our high station tmongst tfie nations of the world."
