SIR, tF you think the following remarks worthy of a corner fn your paper, yoil will oblige one of your numerous readers by in- serting them. In 14 A short view ofthe state of Ireland,*' written in 1/ 27 by ihe Celebrated l> ean SWIFT, he sets out with the following remarks: " I am assured, that it has for some time been prac- tised as a method of making men's court, when they are 41 asked about the rate of lands, the abilities of tenants, the state " of trade and manufacture in this kingdom, and how their re paid ; to answer, that in their neighbourhood ^ flourishing condition, the rent and purchase And if a Gentleman happen rents , things are in of land every day increasing. *• to be a little more sincere in his representation, beside being " looked on as not well - alu- ctcd, he is sure to have a do/ en Con- tl tradictions at his eifootyj -:. X think it is no manner of secret, why these quesUo. ls - al'e. . so cordially asked,, or so obligingly '' answered." . , •. • • i? How far the Dean's remarks, may apply to your late County Meeting. I cannot, say, and shall, therefore leave your readers to determine for t& em selves, l^ am^ t a loss, however, to find out the cause of opposition.. to the Petition moved by Major LEITII IIAY. If rt* con? ain'ed no . specific or practical remedy, for the distresses under which the occupiers of . land have been struggling for" these three or four years past, why did not some of those Gentlemen; opposed to that measure, propose some other in its stead ? Or how comes it. Mr. Editor, that in all our Scotch County Meetings, this practical remedy, so univer- sally known, and so- certain iri its operation, should be so stu- diously kept out of view, and never once in'the most distant manner hinted at ? It is true, one of your County Heritors proposed, as an " adequate remedy, paiient endtira ce nnd re- signation to Heaven;" hut should this very charitable proposal be generally followed, the result will soon show itself. ''* u • Farmer will fag on a little and but a little longer for a r subsistence of oatmeal and potatoes, till the last shilling of his capital iii gone, or at least so far reduced, as when the remain- der shall he rouped, the proceeds will just sui'Hce to pay the landlord ; v. hen " a patient endurance and resignation to Heaven" will then be the only means left for his fuuire support, and probably for that of a numerous and helpless family also j as he cannot in reason expect to be continued in his farm,, after h iving beggared himself hy its improvement. Hut. Sir, is this the language that a great, opulent, and powerful body of landed men should hold out to their tenantry under their present distresses ? Why do the> not come forward like men desirous at least of alleviating thom, and prevent those > fearful of exciting, by adopting the only can be tured to proprrse, wastme ol* great importance, and cvofy per- son interested in the upholding our present great and impor- tant privileges, must see that to uphold them it was necessary to oppose the introduction of Catholics Into Parliament. The Rev. Gentleman then spoke of the perseverance of the Catho- lics. . in renewing their attempts every year; and he had . no doubt, unless strictly watched,, they Would ultimately succeed. The Right Hon. Member who. gaVe notice of the motion said it was only a s'epto some ulterior motion, and insinuated that he wished to see Catholics in the Mouse of Commons and Judges of the land, and if they wero fit for these places, it followed by legitimate sequence that eventually we might have a Catholic King. Mr. Lapslie Seconded the motion. • The Rev. Mr. Form an was as far as any of his brethren in the Synod from defending the doctrines or customs of the in til cm, and cmmvt& U absolutely ifcduced to nothing Cor who woujJ speculate when nobody ^ m Le sure of Tb< i miserable clamours they seefn so measure which every individual of them must be aware, the only efficient one to relieve the present agricultural distress, I mean an adequate reduction ofthe present rents. If this is not done," and speedily too, all that Ministers, or Parliament can do, ( and 1 believe they have done and are doingall that is possible to be done) will avail but little in averting that ruin so universally staring the farmer in the face. Sooner or later a reduction of rents must take place, and the only question just now at issue seems to be, whether it will be for the ultimate benefit of the proprietor to save his present tenantry, by an im- mediate and permanent reduction, or by exacting his present exorbitant rents, and thereby inevitably ruin the whole ? In tie last case is he certain of a new race of tenants with adequate capitals, or admitting that such a race were to start up as if by magic, would they not profit by the example of their beg- gared predecessors, and take farms at a rate only, by which they could secure to themselves something more than a bare subsistence, alter pajing their rents. Improvement in agricul- ture must advance according to the skill and other means em ployed. How and by what means then have the landed estates all over Scotland been so* much improved in value, so that they now bear double, triple, and in some instances quadruple rents, to what they did thirty years ago ? Is it not from the industry, skill, capital, and credit of the ocenpieis ? Have they not, after paying their rents, and other annual contingencies, during the period when high prices were obtained for every article of agricultural produce, laid out every shilling of the surplus in farther improving their possessions, still looking forward to the time when they could lay by something 7 If these facts are admitted, and they must be obvious to the understanding of every unprejudiced reader, what must the poor farmer now / cel. rinding all his hopes blasted even by the progressive risei of lents, but more particularly that things have reverted to their old prices, or nave come down to that standard to which a superabundant produce must necessarily reduce every article cf it. Is it fair then, or even wise, in the Heritor, reaping as he has done all the advantages of these prosperous times, to come forward at the present crisis, and coldly tell his tenantry, that he sees no " adequate remedy" for their distress, but Catholic church, but he was against tiie Synod interfering in the matter. Dr. M'Farlane would Vote against the motion. He saw no good that could come froui it, and wished the Presbytery, in in their zeal against the Caholics, not to fill into what they had characterised as one of their most hateful error*, namely mixing up politics with religion. This was. an Ecclesiastical Court, and he thought considerations like the present. ought to be left to the Parliament. For his part he could see no danger from granting the Catholics what they asked, The proposed measure would not probably send more than six Members to the House of Peers. He wished to give his un- qu ali lied dissent to the present motion, and to wash his hands from any consequences that might ensue from it. The Itev. Mr. Lapslie begged leave to say a few words in reply to what the Rev. Dr. had said of our blending politics and religion together. Those that said * o mistook the Consti- tution. If they would study the Revolution settlement, the Claim of Rights, and the Articles of the Union, they would find, that the Presbyterian Established Church of Scotland was an independent church, and legally entitled and impe- riously called upon to petition Parliament against any innova- tion intended to be introduced into the two Houses of Parlia ment, in opposition to the Constitution fixed at the period of the glorious Revolution. In the second place, that the admit- ting of a few Catholic P£ ers into the House of Lords " would have little effect. Those who said so mistook the matter. There was a strong tendency at present to revive thr supersti- tion of the'Romish Church, which was wonderfully calculated for a dissipated, luxurious age ; for people that wished to livi* as they listed when in health, and yet had a desire to enjoy some peace of mind at their dying moments, which the su- perstition of tire Church of Rome promised to bestow. The Rev. Dr. had said, that it could not welj be expected that muc h attention would be paid lo the petition of the Synod of Glasgow. Mr. Lapslie had no doubt but that the present pe- tition would have its weight, coming from the most'numerous Synod in Scotland, and he ( Mr. Lapslie) trusted equally re- soectable with any other, and comprehending nearly one- fif- h turn ii v — t 41 patient endurance and resignation to Heaven/* Sir, a reduction of five per cent, on rents would afford more real relief than all" that Ministers can do, under present cir- cumstances ; but strch a reduction would be far from meeting the evil. 3 am a small proprietor myself, Mr. Editor, and being fully satisfied of the truth of these remarks, 1 have de- termined on adopting the^ plan of that patriotic Nobleman the Marquis of Stafford, as the one in rrry opinion best calculated to meet the situation of both landlord and tenant ; and i sin- cerely hope that every Heritor, on due consideration of his pwn interest and that of his country, will do the same or something like it. E. E. - i ja To ike EDITOR ofthe ABERPEEN CHRONICLE. SIR, 1 am a pretty constant reader of your paper, and hate always admired the candour, moderation, and independence with which it is conducted. Having taken a lease of a considerable farm about seven years ago. and consequently noW feeling, in Common with my brethren of the same profession, considerable difficulty from the depression of markets. I was willing to at- ich great importance to thelate meeting of our County Gentle- .. ierv, called for the'purpose of petitioning Parliament on the subject of agricultural distress ; but owing, no doubt, to the convincing eloquence of certain gentlemen of the bar, the re- jult has disappointed my expectations. I therefore take the liberty of addressing a few remarks to you on the subject.— According to the report of the proceedings, the most promi- nent. and persuasive speaker was Mr. GORDON of Kincardine, whose pithy arguments in favour of agricultural prosperity re- mained nncontradicted. Although this gentleman's short ex- perience as a proprietor, the local situation, as well as small- extent of his property, do not seem to justify his pretensions to dictate fo the many respectable gentlemen of large property there assembled-'- there is still greater impropriety of him sport- ing as it were with thepiesent distresses of the cultivators of flje soil, which are too notorious to be doubted, and are allow- ed by another gentleman of the law, to have- been " echoed and re- echoed from one end of the kingdom to the other." In all adverse circumstances, incident to human nature, the thy of our fellow creatures is a cordial balm, and seems a sort of honourable debt which we owe to the unfortunate— what then shall we say of that physician, who to a man racked with the agonies of the stone, or ( which is the true picture of the present British farmer,) lingering under tlie less acute but equally fatal malady of consumption, instead of soothing and prescribing for him at least some palliatives to the disorder, » ,; c fY? ends_ and assures bun in ti men. part ofthe whole population of the kingdom ; and he begged farther to observe,, that in this part of the kingdom, liberty, both civil and religious, had taken its rise. Even Bruce and Wallace belonged, properly speaking, to those bounds within the Synod of Glasgow and Ayr; John Knox was descended from a farmer in Renfrewshire. He gloried in the name of an old Whig, in the political opinions which distinguished that class of people at the glorious Revolution, and he hoped that the members of the Synod of Glasgow and Ayr were worthy descendants of their forefathers. Mr. Burns. Paisley, and Dr. Begg, Newmonkland. seve- rally spoke iii favour of' the overture. The Rev. Mr. Fleming Of Neilston reprobated the idea of this or any Ecclesiastical Court interfering with questions of pure politics, but this he said was not a pure political question. It was one which affected chiefly the religious establishments of Great Britain ; and as Catholicism was a system which blended, most artfully, civil with religious power, they must fight it with the same weapons, which it employed to accom- plish, year aft. er* pear, its purpose, and its leap . into Parlia- ment. He reprobated the idea that there was no cause of alarm from the admission of Catholics—- pointed out their cer- tainty arising from their principles— showing that their prin- ciples must be always the same, whatever were their preten- sions— for infalliU'lity could not err, and Popery claimed this infallibility to the decision of a Pope or his Councils. It mat- ters not which you chuse; this '.. infallibility must always- be correct, and the fact was that the doctrines of the Council of Trent remain to this hour as the guide and rule of Catholicism, a system which equally chains the mind and enslaves the body, and which in every age aspired at civil power, and tyrannized over not the poor only, but the Kings of the earth. He pointed out France at this moment, the seat of the arts and sciences, and of all the elegancies of life, enjoying compara- tively a free constitution, and yet we beheld in the metropolis of that learned and renowned country, the Jesuits, under the name of Missionaries, restored, countenanced by the King and his Court, and the Legislative Body— and active in de- luding the multitude with' their wonder working miracles ! These facts were a sufficient refutation to the assertion, that the proselytizing spirit of Popery was changed— fir that science nd literature altered - its nature, or rendered it either more liberal in its spirit, or more active in diffusing the blessings of civil and religious libei ty. Of its m ral effects upon its population, Ireland was at this moment a standing monument among the nations, and, like the Jews, a warning to us ofthe Ireadful consequences of Popery upon the comfort, tranquil- iity. good order, and happiness of society. The Rev. Gentle- man then said, as to the fear of no danger from Catholic Peers the House of Lords, however few in number, he woukl ask who was it that formed thei famous cabal, and if two Papist Lords did not, by their influence and arts, endanger the iberties of our nation ? and what, he added} would be the consequence, if the First Lord of the Treasury, the Com- mander- in- Chief, and the Lord Chancellor of Great Britain, were Catholics, which might be the case the very next day after they were made eligible, would there be no danger from such men to our free Constitution in Church and in State. I'he Reverend Member concluded by supporting the over- presenmng mocks liim in the presence of his friends, and assures him the face of arpale emaciated form, that he is in good health. Mr. G. asserts, that the rent of crop 18til is already paid to Rim, from which it would appear, that not only are there none of liis tenants in arrear, but also that they have paid him six months before it commonly falls due ; this seems a proof, that the tenants of these highland districts have an unusual facility of raising money, whieh perhaps be accounted for. in conse- quence of a certain subtil/.*, warm, and penetrating mountain dcre * peculiar to that elevated region ; and much more en i iching if not for the soil, at te st for the pocket, than the com post midden of the lower districts of the county. Mr. G. next exultingly takes notice of a bargain of Oatmeal, sold at 14s, per boll, most probably on a long credit, as if that were a re remunerating price to the farmer : but why bring forward an isolated fact of this nature in the face of the Fiars of the county, which perhaps are as low as they were forty years ago while rent, price of labour, and expence of tear and wear, i? trebled in course of that period. The last'circumstance of lam in the immediate vicinity of Aber- improve it, seems ture. Mr. MArthur, Dr. Hodgson, and Dr. Maclean, likewise .- poke in favour of the overture, which was agreed to without a division, and Mr, Muir. Dr. Hodson, Mr. Bruce, and Dr. Maclean, were appointed as a Committee to draw up petitions to both Houses of Parliament. SYNOD OF PERTH AND STIRLING. On Tuesday last, the Provincial Synod of Perth and Stirling met at Stirling. Thei*' Moderator, the Rev. Wm. Herdmau of Rattray, having delivered an appropriate discourse from Acts xi. and 24, the members proceeded to business, when the Rev. Andrew Bullock, minister, -. of Alva, was elected Mo- derator for the ensuing half year. After discussing matters of minor importance, the Synod proceeded to consider of a pro- position laid before the Committee of Overtures, for petition- ing both Houses of Parliament " against admitting Popish Lords to sit as members in the British IIou. seof Peers." The overture being approv. crl of, the draft of a petition to the above effect was drawn up by a committee appoint for the purpose. The petition being read and adopted, ihe Moderator was in structed to sign the same, and forward copies to his Grace the Duke of Montrose, and Mr. H. Home Druyomond, member for the county, for the purpose of being presented lo the Peers and Commons. FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. being nlivg- lhe next dav ?

BKREIN, April 1-.— The official Gazette of this day, under the head 1 interior,' publishes the following article : " News lias been pi ed general disquietude serving peace in the east. Althomdi the negotiations, as well at Constantinople, cs at Vienna, are a secret of state, we are nevertheless authorised to declare that nothing has transpired which can be considered of a cha- racter to justify this uneasiness. Hitherto no Court has pronounced a word which can be looked upon as a dsfcl ration of war, or of a nature to lead to it. Considering the incontestable desire of his Majesty the Emperor of Russia to avoid war, if it can be dune consistently with the honour of his Crown— the earnest assurances of the Divan of a wish to remove whatever may furnish mo tivesof dissatisfaction of their powerful neighbour— the unceasing efforts of the Austrian Intel nuncio, the A bass,\ dore of England and France and tlie Prussian Charge d'Affairs at Constf. ntinople, to influence the I'orte to execute treaties— and lastly, the conviction o the Divan that these agents are guided by the most pur views in the advice which they gave to it, to avoid war bv concession, the most well grounded hope is entertain cd that the difficulties which still exist will soon be re moved." NAPLES, March 29.— The Minister of the Interior has addressed to the Cardinal Archbishop of Naples the following Decree, dated March 15: " The King, informed that. a great number of public and private masters have not taken care to watch that their scholars frequented the congregations di spirito, i established in the different communes of the kingdom, for the greater benefit ofthe studious youth ; informed also that'a grfat Hum! er of fathers of families; instead of J obliging their children to proceed on holidays to the said congregations', are rather disposed to keep them away from these religious ceremonies, orders as follow : " 1. All public and private masters ought to second the Bishops, in what concerns frequenting the congre- gation di spirito. Therefore the public masters must produce every week an attestation certified by the liishops, that they have taken care that their scholars were present at the said congregations. In default they are not to receive their salaries. With regard to private masters negligent in this particular, the Bishops mav shut up their schools. 2. Fathers neglecting to send their own children to the s iid congregations, his Majesty declares to be un- worthy of*" obtaining any public employment. This to be applicable to Tutors - and. Guardians. " 3. Children or young persons not proved to have been present at the said congregations, canilot aspire to any place, charge, or other favour " rnExcir POST OFFTCE. M G'rardin, in the Chamber of Deputies on Friday- last, made some severe, and we believe well- merited re- marks on the scandalous practice pursued by the French Post- oifice, of ojiening private letters. This disho- nourable, iminoral, and impolitic task has been perform- ed with equal diligence under the old and the revolution- ary regime of France— under the usurpation of Bona- parte, and the monarchy of I. ouis XV III. There are now, according to M. Girardin, above thirty officers employed in the business of breaking open, deciphering where necessary, forging seals, and re- enclosing letters, under the immediate inspection of the Director- General of I'osts. While part of tho correspondence is thus vio lated, another portion is suppressed; and one of till first benefits of a civilized community— that of maintain ing the intercourse of its separated members— is turned into the treacherous instrument of a prving and vindic- tive police. The effect of this, on the character of the Government, as well as, when it becomes notorious, on the national character itself, it would not be difficult to imagine. M. V'illele made but a feeble defence, consist- ing merely of assurances, that so long as he had been in office, he never heard this creditable expedient spoken of in the Council Chamber as one amoun* the resources of Administration. We can confidently - state, that for many years the breaking open of private letters has been a matter given mi as quite unquestionable, whenever the conduct of the' Post- office luu tea.,. - j^ Jcen of amJno> Frenchmen of whatever party. The practice isrepo. if ed to have been introduced into England at the acces- sion ofthe House of Brunswick, and under the apoiogv nf a disputed crown ; here, however, it is said to be re- sorted to but occasionally, and under a direct warrant from a Cabinet Minister. justice; and ttie Governor of Tomsk, M.. Illisenewskv is to be dismissed from his office, and, referred, with his defence, to the Senate. In Hie ukase, there follow the other fvT5 officers, - with their opines. The attentive dcei- yer of the Russianiiaihiiinistrat'ion of justice will find tills ukaSel extending to So lurgjj a number of indi- iduaifc, with the just severity that raises a barrier against 11 intetcessirtn, atid other ordinary preservatives, to be all . ... . a very rare, and for that reason ihe more benefitial phe- nomenon. At the same time with this ukase appeared an Imperial decree respecting the new division of Si- beria. FRANKFORT, April 7.— The Prince de Gallitzin, Minister bf Public Instruction, has, in the naine ofthe Euiperorof Russia, addressed thanks to the Count de Sobolewski, Minister Secretary of State, for the sub- scription ofthe inhabitants of Poland, iu behalf of the Greek families who have taken refuge in the Russian! dominions. The fund so raised amounts to . I51>()' JT- Polish florins. The thawing of the Neva commenced on the 18th lilt. It. is above a century since it took place before the 22d ofthe same month. SI. PETERSBURG!!, March 26.— On Sunday the anniversary of his Majesty's accession to the throne was observed in the most solemn manner. The new Tariff which will be printed in a few days, is in fact only a supplement to that already in force. It is not to be in force till Mav 1, ( o. s.) ; and all mercan- tile transactions and consignments of goods from abroad, previous to that date, a'e to be regulated according to the present Tariff It is now positively known, that by the new supplement the following articles are to be for the future prohibited :— All white, green, and black cloths, refined sugars and lumps, silk manufactures, jewellery, and several articles of steel. The import dutv on other articles', for instance, wines, will probably be raised 50 per cent. The question of peace or war between Russia and Turkey is still as undecided as ever. still feuing at a Mgh rate. tletn, and requiring besides jireat expence In impfovt ratlicr ii relevant to the present subject, as tlie feuar's object may have little connexion with the g. iiet. 1 pursuits of farmers. On the whole, the best comment on P. Jr. G's assertions on tlie prosperity ot agriculture is, the tact/ but impressive eloquence ef a much respected neighbour of his own.- j- having ( since the day of the above mentioned meeting, and consequently after duly appreciating these luminous assertions.) generously de- ducted twenty- five per eeut. from bis rents.— I am & c.

PARTS, April 13.— It has been rumoured in tills ca- pital, during several davs past, that General Berton had disembarked at St. Sebastian, but this intelligence ap- pears apocryphal ; it is onlv certain that some of his par- tisans have arrived at that port. A letter from Li si en x states, that on the 6th the gen- darmerie arrested in that town an individual who was journeying ii) the character of merchant and who had been denounced as having attempted to inlist, for Gene- ral Berton's troop, three sub- officers of a regiment in garrison at Caen, lie was, it is said, furnished witlrse- vera] passports in blank form, bearing the stamps and seals of various civil and military authorities. M. Bodin, a pensioned officer, who was formerly Aide- de- Canip to General Berton, and who had been arrested at Pont- Carre, near Brest, has just been libe- rated. On the 5th inst. two tri- coloured flags, made of paper bearing seditious inscriptions, were found in a street at Vv isseinbourg. An investigation of the circumstance has commenced. A private letter from Bucharest, of the 12th of March, says—" We are still in a most dreadful situa- tion ; Jassv has just become the prev of the flames ; the same deplorable fate is perhaps reserved for us. Not a day. passess but what is marked by murders and partial fires ; the day before yesterday a whole family was mas-, sacred in the suburbs, and after the Turks had plundered the house, thev set it on fire.

S.), there appeared at St. Peters burgh an ukase of very great importance, and of which there are few in- stances in the annals of the Russian administration of justice. It pussfes judgment on a great number of civil officers, who carried on their mal- practices in Siberia so long as the Privy Counsellor Pestel was Governor of that immense country. When, in 1819, M de Sper- anski was appointed his sucessor, he received, at the same time, orders to make a report on all the existing abuses. This was done, and the Emperor referred the report to the examination of a Commission, of which Count Kotschubei, was President, and in which the two Ministers, Count Guriew anil F. Gotitzen, General Count Araktschejew, and Privy Counsellors Speranski and Campenhausen, had a seat and vote. The result of th's investigation, confirmed by the Emperor, is, that 678 civil officers in Siberia have been removed, punish- ed, or reprimanded. Without'going into the catalogue of their transgressions, which is indeed printed and pn blished, but not generally circulated, we observe that the chief inculpations were— 1. Kxaction and monopoly in supplying the Siberian Governments with grain ; Peculation in the making of roads, and in calculating the contributions of the country ; 3. Embezzlement in levy- ing the tribute ofthe subject tribes; 4. Embezzlement to the detriment of the colonies, <& e. & c. and-, that, in consequence of tlie Emperor's confirmation, the late Governor of Siberia, Pestel, is discharged from the service, 4 because he had remained . twelve years absent from the scene of his official duties, ant}, bv this long absence, kit amp'ie room for these ' evil practices ; " that , the Governor ofIrku. uk, M* Turkin> i* given over to AMERICA. [ Frdm the National InttdUgcncxi ] The following MESSAGE was transmitted yesterday ( March 8,) by the PRESIDENT to the House of Re- presentatives : TO THE HOUSE OF . REPRESENTATIVES OF THE UNITIVD ST A FES. In transmitting to the House of Representatives the docu-. merits called for bv the resolution of that House ofthe 30th January, I consider it my duty to invite the attention of the Congress to a very important subject, and to communicate the sentiments ofthe Executive on it, that should Congress enter- tain similar sentiments, there may be such co- operation between the two departments of the Government, as their respective rights and duties may require. The revolutionary movements in the Spanish provinces attracted the attention, and excited the sympathy, of our fellow- citizens. From its commence- ment this feeling was natural and honourable to them, from causes which need not be communicated to you. It has been gratifying to all, to see the general agreement which has been manifested in the policy which the constituted authorities have deemed it proper to pursue in regard to this contest. As soon as the movement assumed such a steady form as to make the success of the provinces probable, the rights to which they were entitled by the law of nations, as equal parties to a civil war, were extended to them. Each party was permitted to enter our ports with its public and private ships, and to take from them every article which was the subject of commerce with other nations. Onr citizens also carried on commerce with both parties, and the Government has protected it with eacb in articles not contraband of war. Through the whole of this con- , t the United States have remained neutral, and have ful filled with the utmost impartiality all the obligations incident to that character. This contest h;. s now reached such a s age, and been attended with such decisive success on the part of the provinces, that it merits tlie most profound consideration whether their light to the rank of independent nations, with all the advantages incident on it, in their intercourse with the United States, is not complete, liuenos Avres assumed the rank by a formal declaration in, 1816, and has enjoyed il since 1810. free from invasion by the parent country. . The Provinces composing the Republic of Columbia, afier having repeatedly, declared their . independence, were united by a fundamental law of. the 17th D ' ce- mbcr 1819. A strong Spanish force occupied at that time certain parts of | he territory within their limits, and waged a destructive war ; that force has since been repeatedly defeated, and the whole of it either made prisoners, or destroyed, or expelled from the country, with the exception of an inconsiderable proportion which is blockaded in two fortresses., The Provinces in the Pacific have likewise been very successful. Chili declared independence in 1818 and has since enjoyed it undisturbed • and of late, by the assistance of Chili and Buenos Ayres, the revolution has ex- tended to Peru. Of the movement in Mexico, our informa- tion is less authentic, but it is distinctly understood that the new Government has declared its independence, and that there is now no opposition to it there, nor a foice to make any. Ft these last three years the Government of S^ ain has not sent a single corps of troops to any part of that country, nor is there reason to believe it will send any in future ; thus it is manifest that all these provides are in the full enjoyment of tlleir inde pendcnce. When the result of such a c utest is manifestly settled, the new Government have a claim to recognition by other Powers which ought not to be resisted. Civil wars often exrite feeling-; which the parties cannot controul. The opinion entertained bv other powers as to the result may assuage these feelings, and promote au accommodation . between them useful and honour able to both. The delay which has been observed in making a decision on this important subject will, it is presumed, have afforded an unequivocal proof to Spain, as it must have done to other Powers, ofthe high respect entertained by the Uniteii States for her rights, and of her determination not to interfere with them. The Provinces belonging to that hemisphere are Our neighbours, and have successively, as each portion ofthe country acquired its independence, pressed their recognition by appeal to facts not to be contested, and wfiich they thought gave them a just title to it j but to motives of interest this Go- vernment has invariably, disclaimed all pretensions, being re- solved to take no part in the controversy, or other measures in regard lo it, which should not merit the sanction of the civilized world. It was incumbent on this Government to look to every im- portant fact and circumstance on which a sound opinion codul be formed, which has been done. From the present condition of the parties, and the utter inability of Spain to produce any j„ weare compelled to conclude that its fate is settled, j and that the r rovu< wu.{!£> rlarfid. their independtyiee, and are in the enjoyment of it, ought to be recognised, Ofthe views of the Spanish Government on this subject no . particular information has been lately received, nor has any authentic information been recently obtained of the disposition of other powers respecting it. A sincere desire has been che- rished to act in concert with them in the proposed recognition, of which several were some time ps- st duly appiisod ; but it was understood they were not prepared for it. The immense space between these powers and these provinces makes the move- , ment an affair of less interest and excitement ' o them tlian to us. It is probable, therefore, that they have been less attentive to its progress than we have been. It may be presumed, how- ever, that the late events will dispel ali doubt of the result. In proposing this measure, it is not contemplated to change thereby, in the slightest manner, our friendly relations with either of the parties, but to observe, in all respects, as here tofore, should the war lie continued, the most perfect neutrality between them. Of this friendly disposition, an assurance will be given to tlie Government ol Spain, to whom, it is presum ed, it will be as it ought to be. satisfactory. Theuieasure is proposed, under a thorough conviction that it is in strict ac- cord with the law' of nations ; that it is just ai d right as to the parties ; and that the United States owe it to their station and ; character in the world, as well is to their essential interests, to 1 adopt it. Should Congress concur in the view herein present- ed, they will doubtless seethe propriety of making'' the necessary appropriations for carrying it into effect. JAMES MONROE. Washington, March 8, 1822. NEW YORK, March. 15.'— it is said that the Spanish i Ambassador at Washington is preparing a protest against the recognition bv our Government of the independence j of the Spanish American Colonies. Should Cortgr th of May, move to refer the report of the Committee ou Welch judicature to a. Comniittee of the whole House. Mr. BENNET moved for leave to bring in a bill to amend the law relative to accessories before the fact in certain felonies. Leave was given. The Hon. Member also mover! for leave to bring in a bill to amend the law relative to the punishment for manslaughter. The Hon. Member observed, he thought the Court, as the law now stood, did not possess a sufficient power of punishment on this beau. He should therefore pro- pose to give iii this case a power to the Judge to transport for seven years; After a few words from Mr. WYNNE, who. expressed his opinion in favour of this object, leave was given to bring iu the bill. AGRICULTURAL DISTRESS. Lord LONDONDERRY said, having understood that his notice on the subject of agriculture, which stood for Mon- day. was likely to interfere with the notice of a Right Hon. Baronet, relative to the state of Ireland, tvhich stood for that day, he was desirous of now postponing his notice to Friday the 26th inst. ; longer than that he could not consent to delay this important Hrcussiou. Sir T. LETH BRI DGE presented a petition from certairt owners and occupiers of land in North Corry, in Somerset- shire, complaining of distress, and expressing their opinion that the course recommended by the Agricultural Committee iu their report would fail to givy relief. They strongly re- commended the, imposition of such a prohibitory duty as would tirely prevent importation. They prayed not only for a pro- tecting duty on corn, but on every other species of agricultural producc. He had heard it said that the cause of the present distress was over production aud great superabundance, but lie had not heard the cause of that superabundance assigned. The cause was the great importation not only of corn, but ot" tallow, bides, and every other description of agricultural produce, which had of late flowed in upon us on every side. Mr. PHILLIPS said a few words, which were inaudable in the gallery. The petition was then received. Sir J. NEWPORT presented a petition from Wuterford, praving a repeal ofthe window tax in Ireland. THE CATHOLIC PEERS. Mr. Secretary PEEL presented a petition from the Synod f Ayr, praying that the House would adt entertain the pro- position for admitting Catholic Peers, to seats in Parliament. He wished to take this opportunity of st ain;-, that the sense of the House would be taken in the first stage of this proceeding, whether it was for a Committee or leave to bring » n- a bill. Mr. TIEllNEY could not but consider the lecture read ( by the petitioners to the House in this petition, no bill being1 before tiie Howie), as impertinent, to say the least of it. Mr. PEEL defended, the petition. It was well ICHOWII \ r> every one that such av measure was contemplated, and tha petitioners had only exercised their right of petition, and ex- ercised it in the most respectful terms ; but he hjd observed that, whenever a petition was presented which did not quite meet the views of gentlemen opposite, they were most acute in find- ing out objections, Mr. H Ui\ j E denied that assertion. Objections to petitions always came from the other side of the House. Petition re- ceived. Mr. BROUGHAM then presented a petition from certain dissenters of Kendal, praying for an alteration in the mar- riage act; other petitions on the same subject from Portsmouth, aud other places, which were received. MARRIAGE ACT. Mr. \ V. SMITH then rose to bring forward his motion, for leave to bring in a bill to amend the marriage act as related to dissenters. He believed it was universally acknowledged, that marriage was a civil ceremony. Previous to the passing of the act of 2(? th of George II. marriage ceremonies perform- ed in dissenting places of worship were held legal, but by that act it was provided that all marriages, to render them legal, should be solemnized in church, and with all the forms and ceremonies of the ritual. This was to oblige dissenters either to submit to ceremonies contiary to their consciences, or to give up the ccremonies altogether. This was a most severe punishment upoii a numerous class of persons who had never committed any offence, and was a grievous hardship, especially as exemptions from the operations of this act were given to the ( Quakers, who were in fact a body of dissenters. Every one would now agree that marriage was a civil contract, and this had been held to be the fact by the present Lord Chancellor, who. in a ease decided by him in 1813, said marriage was founded on the cation law, and being so founded, was a civil contract in all countries, unless where the canon law was re- strained bythe statute law. Now he ( Mr. S.) was not aware of any statute law which restrained the canon law, except tho marriage act of 17% ; that act was intended to restrain and prevent clandestine marriages, and w. » s not intended to give solemnity oi religious character to the ceremony. Now be did not wish at all to interfere with the legal provisions of that act, hut merely to regulate die religious solemnity belonging t « it- The Hon. Mem!> er concluded by moving for leave to hang in a bill for altering and amending. cerUi. n parts of the act commonly called the marriage act. Lord LONDONDERRY would not oppose the hill being brought in. but would not be understood as pledging himseVf to support it in its progress. Mr. H. GU RNEY would not oppose the bill being brought in, though he conten^ pJated considerable difficulty. Leave given to bring in the bill. Thursday, April 18. Upon the motion of Mr. KENNEDY, the second reading of the Scotch Commissary Couits Bill was postponed till the 29th inst. PUBLIC ACCOUNTS. The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER rose, in pursuance of a notice he had given, to move for a Select Com- mittee to investigate the public accounts ; but from the noise that prevailed in the House, and the very low tone in which the Right Hen. Gentleman spoke, we could merely catch the substance of his motion, namely— < 4 That a Sclect Committee be appointed to consider the best mode of simplifying the accounts luid annually before the Houses of Lords and Commons, including the national debt, the national expenditure, aud the trade « " 4 » « vigadon ofthe kinfjvjcwfV. Mr. MA BERLY did not rise to give any op- wat ion to the motion proposi ti by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, for he felt that the errors and inconsistencies which had been dis- covered i'n. the public accounts during the present year, louklly called for some such measure. Last year a balance sheet- had been proposed by the Right Hon. Gentleman opposite, to which he imag'hied the House was indebted for the present motion ; and he thought if the public accounts were rendered consistent with that balance sheet, ihe country would derive considerable btnefit, for it wou d enable the country gentle- men to understand the public expenditure without w- ading " through such a masse of unintelligible figures as were at pre^ sent presented to them It would be well if the course pursued by the' Committee were to put the' accounts in u mercantile shape rather than any other. TheCli \ N CELLO 11' of the E X CII E Qt/ E It explained. He said the House would see that the en or.-, complained of arose from the mo'de'in which they were directe d to bo kept by Act of Parliament. Sir HENRY PARNELL did not mean to oppose the tr. o - tion for a Committee, but he wished to impress upon the mind of tl » e Chancellor of the E* u* heq uer that fie had ndt gone far enough; for it was not a siurpii'ication of the public ac- counts only presented, to Parliament that was necessary, but oi the entire system. He held in his hand an extract from a fcUfcwn. tml uuuta by Mr. Stednwo, * the Aeeo intimt- General, in 1830 which stated that a sum of fourt. e millions annually passe^ tbrojigh hi* office, and he hail no hesitation inlaying, that if a proper system * Vere awop; ed, the accounts of that office ' might be kept much more clearly and regularly There were oesi'des, variousomis- ions in the public accounts. For instance, no account was given of the supplier granted, which would tble Uie House to see whether a balance remained on bauds, r whether the entire was disposed of: He therefore thought t e present measure would be rendered much more efficient'if - i. extended to'the en; ire system. ' He t* Mild sl- e- no objection .. v> rhis„ for it would not materially increase the ' a'oours of the Committee. M » . PETER MOORE expressed a hope that one general ' I to. qunt would in future be laid before the Houseofall the da- pendencies of Qreat Britain. They well enpugh knew t! T\? ? I f t ii ti • i i c a I K H a li H • iu fjiWs tint were annually, voted to maintain tf, etti ; bat they were altogether ignorant of the resources derived from them. He. therefore, hoped these resources would he carefully ex- amined and explained, and that the public accounts would not only be put in an intelligible shape, but placed before the House at a period sufficiently early to he rendered, useful. Mr. LUSHING TON said, the object of the Hon. Gentle- man who had just sat down would he fully accomplished by the motion ofhis Right Hon. Friend, the Chancellor of the Exchequer; and there was no doubt the public accounts would be placed in the hands of Members at the necessary time. . Mr ELI. ICE could not concur with his Hon. l riends in the expectations they entertained of the great benefit to be de- rived from this Committee. He did hope, from what had pass- ed last year, that a Committee would have been appointed to inquire into the accounts generally ; and he thought it extreme- ly advisable that thev should report at different periods the progress they had made. One of the objects to which the attention of the Committee should be directed would be the best mode of managing the sinking fund ; for by the system whieh was going on at present, it was, in fact, only paying money frimTone pocket into the other. And he understood an alteration was about to be made in the sinking fund, which would probably form a part of the Chancellor ofthe Exche- quer's budget, and which would alter its most essential feature. He alluded to the plan for ceasing to multiply the compound interest upon the sinking fund. If that were to be dpne, and tbe sinking fund were to be limited to five millions, would it not be better at once to strike oil' that amount from the 1111 ttonal debt, ami get rid of the enormous sums paid to clerks for the management of it ? They had heard numerous state- ments of the great increase of trade, and the exports of last year exceeding by so much those of former years; but, so far from that, they were considerably diminished. He well knew the principles upon which these calculations were made, and if those principles which were acted upon during the war were found erroneous, the sooner they were departed from the better. These were the objects to which, in his opinion, the attention of the Committee should be directed. One good, however, would be done— the Committee would be appointed ; and he hoped the Chancellor of the Exchequer would give an assur- ance, that, at the end of ( tie Session, the Committee would report the progress they had made, and be re- appointed at the commencement of the next Session. Mr. J. 51 A RTIN thought the Committee had been ap- pointed rather late in the Session to enable them to complete their duties, and he therefore hoped they would be revived. Sir JOHN NEWPORT Was of opinion that the Committee should proceed seriatim, and report from time to time. Tee CHANCELLOR of the EXCH FQUElt objected to partial reports being made by a Committee intrusted with • n extensive inquiry, as it must necessarily lead to great in- convenience. Mr. GRENFETX, adverting to a recommendation which he bad before made to the House to abolish the present method of working the sinking fund, and reduce the fund and ma- chinery of 17 trillions annually to the real amount of three or. five millions, whichever it was, wished to know if the Right Hor.. Gtntl » man had any intention of subjecting that qucs- * bn to the Committee. * He had been given to understand that there would be no objection to send the subject to the Committee for consideration. The CIIANCF. LOU of the EXCHEQUER repeated • what he had stated before, that it might lie useful for the Com- mittee to inquire how far it would be practicable to new model the law appertaining to the operations of the sinking fund ; hut he had never held out any intimation of anv intent on the part of Government as to a reconstruction of the sinking fund. The motion was then agreed to. The several Acts relating to ihe public accounts were ordered to be referred to the said Committee. The Seditious Meeting Amendment Bill was read a second time. Mr. DENISON moved for the Committee on this Bib for this day fortnight, when he proposed that it should pass the Committee pro forma, and the debate be taken, afier the cir- culation of the Bill among the gentlemen of the country on tile bringing up of the Report. The Committee was fixed for this day fortnight. Friday, April 19. There being but 57 Members present at four o'clock, the House adjourned till to- morrow. Saturday, April 20,_ The SPEAKER took the Chair soon after twelve o'clock. There were about CO Members present. Mr. ARBHTHNOT gave notice, that on Monday, in the Committee of Supply, he should move certain estimates for extraordiuarv and miscellaneous services. Adjourned. From the LONDON GAZETTE, April 20.

LONDON, April 20. On Wednesday night at half- past eight o'clock, his Majesty arrived at his Palace in Pall Mall, from Brigh- ton. • ' KING'S LEVEE— Yesterday his Majesty held a Levee tit his Palace in Pall Mall, which was more numerously attended than any for several years past. The French Ambassador went in state with his suit in two carriages. Earl Grosyenor went in state, and there was a general display of splendid equ ipages. The Levee was attended generally by most ofthe principal families in the King- dom. The carriages began to arrive at one o'clock, and continued setting down without intermission till near four o'clock, three and four carriages setting dowirat a time. The line of Carriages occasionally extending to Grafton Street, Bond Street. Sir Richard Birnie, the Chief Magistrate ofthe Po- lice, was early in attendance with numerous parties of the Bow Street patrole. The King's Guard in white gaiters, preceded by their band in state uniform, marched into the Court Yard soon after one o'clock. Tiie Grenadier Life Guards attended with trumpets, trombones, and kettle- drums; these played alternately with the band of the Foot Guards during the whole of the afternoon. After the Levee his Majesty retired to the Royal Closet, when the Marquis of Queensberry was invested with the Order of the Thistle ; after which Lieut.- Gen. Sir Rufane Darkin, Major- General Sir Hudson Lowe, and Major- General Sir John Cameron ( being preceded . by Sir George Nayler, officer of the Bath), were se- verally invested as Knights Commanders of the Bath : Captain Sir Jaliel Brenton, Bart. R. N. Knight Com- reander of the Bath, was Knighted. Lord Napier gave tip the Ensignia of the Bath worn bv his late brother- in- law, Admiral Sir John B. Warren, R. N. THE KING'S VISIT TO THE CONTINENT. The foreign Journals are full of accounts- of prepara- tions for the reception of the King of England in various {. arts of Hie Continent, especially Germany. His Ma- jesty will visit Cologn, Bonn, Coblcntz, there cross the Rhine to inspect the almost impregnable fortress of Eh- renbreistein, Jonannisburg, the seat of' Prince Metter- ji. ch, Wiesbaden, Frankfort ( and in that neighbourhood iontmue a day or two with his sister tho Princess of ITesse Hamburg), Darmstadt, Manheim, Heidelburg ( to see the great tun), Ludjvi,;: burg, SliHgard ( where with the Queen Dowager of Wurtemburgh, late Prin- cess Royal of England.,. he will remain some time,, not having seen her since; she left her bonk;); from thence to Ulm, cross the Damlbe, and pass through Augsburg to'Munich, afterwards over the plain of Hohenjiriden to Passau, or go at once to Regensburg, to visit the father of the Princess Estei'huzy, and there embark on the " Dark rolling Danube" for Vienna. , It is saiu his Ma- jesty has expressed a wish , to. stop at the fine city of Lentz, also at the noble Convent at Molk, of which a correct description is given by Dibdin in his . Bibliogra- phical and Picturesque Tour; also to inspect the fine ruin in which the lion hearted Richard Was confined.— The Marquis of Hastings, who is on his return from his Government in India, has been appointed Ambassador to Austria ; he does not come here, but is expected to meet the King of' England at Vienna. The sports and pastimes i'n preparation by the Emperor of Austria, are reported to be on a scale of uncommon magnificence ; all . the petty Prinr. s and inferior Kings in Germany will assist at these banquets. His Majesty has promised to visit the Principality, of Esterhazy, in Hungary, and return by Way of Prague, Toplitz, and Dresden. Should the state of the road permit, he will go from thenee to Beflin, and take Hanover on his wav hoiiie. Paris is included in the tour, but in what stage of it is not yet determined. Although the demand among the farmers for a reduction of rent is become nearly universal, it is an actual fact, that when- ever a survey is held for letting an estate in this neighbour- hood, it is fully attended, and the renters outbid each other, the landlord realising a price far exceeding his expectations.— Plymouth Journal. Three months Half- pav to the Reduced Officers ofhis Majesty's land forces, to the 24th March,- will com- mence paying on the 24th inst. and continue every day ( Saturday aud Sunday excepted) till the 22d of May ; after which time, on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wed- nesdays. Ilaytian papers have been received to the 10th of February. They contain a full account of the entry ofthe republican troops, without opposition, into the citv of Santiago, in the Spanish part of the island, and of the adoption of the Republican Constitution by the inhabitants. Prior journals are filled with the speeches of the various Generals to the troops on the 19th year of Havtian independence. Among other benefits which are stated in these speeches to have occurred from the independence of the country, are reckoned the public schools established Lv the President, for the instruction of Youth. Besides Santiago', it appears that Cutuy, La Vega, Porta Plata, and Monte Christi, had hoisted the republican flag. On Wednesday a Court of Directors was held nt the East India House, when the following Commanders took leave ofthe Court previous to their departure for their respective destinations, viz.— Captain Richard Clifford, Lady Melville ; Captain John Small Henrv Eraser, Marquis of Huntly ; Captain Robert Wright Norfor, Regent; and Captain Thomas Williams, Princess Amelia, China direct. The under- mentioned Captains were sworn into the command of their respective ships, viz.— Captain Brook Kav, Marchioness of' Ely ; and Captain William Adamson, Winchelsea, consigned to Bengal direct. A meeting is about to be called of the merchants, ship- owners, & c. of London, for the purpose of pre- senting a representation to Government on the expedien- cy of permitting the ships belonging . to the republics of Columbia, Buenos Ayres, Chili, & c. to be admitted into our ports ( when coming direct from their respective countries, and laden with the produce thereof,) in the same manner as the ships of the United States and Brazil, The altered situation of these Countries, in consequence of their being no longer colonies of Spain, seems to render some such regulation advisable, and the mercantile interest feel a degree of anxiety lest the with- holding it should produce, on the other side, regulations unfavour- able to the admission of our shipping into their ports on the same terms with those of nations which may tyrant to these republics that reciprocity. Extract of a private letter, dated Paris, April 15:— " Mr. Burdett, a relation of Sir Francis Burdett, and who iias not been in France before for four years, has just been arrested, on his arrival in Paris, bv the Police, on suspicion of his having treasonable papers in his pos- session." Letters are unable to describe the internal wretched- ness of Ireland ; and the public observe with great satis- faction that Sir John Newport will not abandon his re- view of'the state of that countrv. Much benefit is ex- pected from his knowledge and sound judgment. From Lord Londonderry's field- day on Agricultural Distress, the people have no reason to look for any good result; as his proposition will probably be founded on the nota- ble and never to be sufficiently valued Report of the Agri- cultural Committee. Should his Lordship propose any real remedy, the public will be most agreeably disappoint- ed, for at present they expect nothing from him, and take no interest whatever in his promised notion. THE DIAMONDS Many obscure allusions have been made to the subject of the sum of L. 70,000, which it was said was intended to be charged to tiie coronation expenses. The following we believe to be, a fair state- ment of the facts :— His Majesty presented, some time ago, to the Marchioness of Conynghan; an elegant dia- mond collar. At a party at the Pavilion next evening, Lady Francis Conyngham, the Marchioness's daughter- in- law, appeared with the collar on her neck. The King said he intended it for the decoration of the person of the Marchioness, who replied, that she considered it more appropriate to the person of Lady Francis, and that she wanted a Diamond Stomacher the latter article was therefore procured and presented, and the bill for the two baubles, amounting to L. 70,000, sent into the Treasury. Lord Liverpool immediately wrote a letter, in which he stated, that " in the present time of cavil at expenditure, he could by no means countenance such a payment from the public funds, but the demand must be met from the privy purse." This letter arrived at an inauspicious moment, and was reserved, as it is supposed, until a propitious opportunity should occur for the com- munication of so unpleasant a document. In the interim however a second application was made to the Treasury for payment, and the Earl of Liverpool went immedi- ately to Brighton, where finding his letter had not reached its destination, he* protested against any intervention be- tween his Majesty and his Ministers ; and in consequence . of Lord Liverpool's sternness on the subject, Sir Benja- min Rloomfield's dismissal took place. It is but justice to both parties to add, that his Majesty intimated his gra- cious intention to continue his salary; to which Sir Ben- jamin nobly replied, that if his services were no longer required, he could have no possible claim to oe paid for them. Sir Benjamin is succeeded by Lord Francis Co- nyngham, a younger son of the Marchioness of Conyng- ham 1! 1— Country Paper. ADVANTAGES OF RATTING.— A few weeks ago, there was a vacancy amongst the Commissioners of the Lottery Office at Somerset Place. These situations are comfortable little sinccures of L. 200 per annum each ; and about two- thirds of the Commissioners reside at a distance from London, and their duties are then per- formed by such of their colleagues who are on the spot, and who by such extra attendance increase their pay to about L. 230 per annum. The conscientious and reli- gious Lord Liverpool resolved, that the vacancy in question should not be filled up ; but a member of the house failing iu his application for the place, considered himself very ill- used. Subsequently, however, to this member's disappointment, the Duke of Buckingham ap- plied to Lord Liverpool for the Comtaissioijership, and obtained it; the place being bestowed upyij a friend of the Duke's tides!- son.—" So much for Buckingham." A Correspondent inquires whether during the pending negoci'itfons'at Vienrta, in. which tho interests of Great Britain are so deeply concerned, our Ambassador to Aus- tria, Lord Stewart, who is now in this country, has con- timred to draw/ his enormous salary ? DEATH M A. BcI. I,.-— On the ' 2- 71It ult. John Gills of, Kider, near Kirkoswald, Cumberland; went to the crew- yard to let Out a bull of thd'short- horned breed, as . was his custom ; hitherto the animal ha< J been per- fectly4 harmless, but on tin-; occasion, he stepped bacls a few yards, and then rushed upon his master, with all the ferocity which these creatures are known to possess when irritated; his master fell before him, and the sa- ; agc beast began to gore him dreadfully. Gill s. wife, hearing an unusual bellow from the bull, i\ m out, and saw her husband gored by the savage animal. In the horror of the moineiit, she'rushed in, took up her hus- band, and carried him into the house, the bull stand- ing motionless ; as if striken with his work of destruc- tion, he suffered her to depart without molestation. She passed a gate ingoing into the house with, her almost lifeless husband, and when she had readied the door, the bull darted forth, and in the furv ofhis passion com- pletely demolished the gate. On surgical aid being pro- cured, it was found that the whole of the unfortunate man's ribs on one side were broken, as also his breast bone, and one of his eves gored out. After lingering nine days iu great agony, lie breathed his last. IRELAND. DUBLIN, April 16.— A proclamation by his Excel- lency the Lord Lieutenant and the Privy Council was vesterday issued, declaring the Baronies of Chuiwilliam, Slievardagh, Middlethird, Ufa and Offh East, and Elip- garty', in the county of Tipperary, ( with some local ex- ceptions.) to be in a state of disturbance, and placed them undfir the provisions of the insurrection act.— Dublin Patriot, DUBLIN, April 18.—- We are gratified in being able to state that his Excellency the Lotd Lieutenant lut3 re- covered from the indisposition Under which he laboured for the last few days. WATERFORD, April 17.— A daring outrage was committed on Sunday night, seven miles south- west of this. citv. Three. cows, the property of Mr. Thomas Hally, - were houghed on the lands of Coolnacuppogue, in the county of. Waterford, a house on said lands at- tempted to be set on fire, a. nd a notice left with the per- son in care ofthe house and lands, threatening the said Thomas Hally with further injury, unless he gave up the possession of that farm, which he had lately taken from Lord Doueraile. On Monday occurred the most audacious violation of the peace that we have yet had to record for this neigh- bourhood, since the commencement ofthe present odious disturbances. About three o'clock in the afternoon, to the terror and astonishment of numbers, a well armed and tolerably well- appointed party of about ten men travers- ed the south- eastern extremity ofthe barony of Knock- topher, in the countv Kilkenny, in a body, undisturb- ed, and proceeded to the house of Patrick Murphy, of Buckstown, near Mullinavat, a tenant of Thomas Edmund Lalor, of Cregg, in the county Tipperary, Esq. About two months ago Murphy had besfn served with a White Boy Noticc to Quit, which having disre- garded, he received a domiciliary visit and personal cas- tigation, on the night of the 8th March. Still he per- severed, and the mid- day legislators of . Monday broke his doors, windows, and furniture, gave him a dreadful beating, and were with much difficulty and supplicating importunity prevented from putting a fatal termination to his persecution. This threat, too, thev left behind in case of finding the necessity of another visit. They then perambulated the country in various directions, searching almost every house for arms. We do notthink that they were so lucky as to succeed in any one instance. After some time thev were encountered and put to the route by a party of voting farmers whom Dr. Dillon, of Ballyquin, lately formed into something like a mili- tary band. In the flight one of the marauders lagged, and was taken. He has been committed to Kilkenny gaol by Joseph Bobbins, ofFirgrove, Esq; his name- is Power ; he is the son of a farmer who lives at Cotters- town, near Kilntaganny, at no great distance, in the county Kilkenny. The scene of these operations was from seven to nine miles from Waterford, in a northerly direction. NAVAL REGISTER. FItOM LLOYD'S MARINE LIST, April 12.

THE AKCTIC EXPEDITION.— On the 9th March last at six o'clock, A. M. a countryman who was employ- ed gathering sea- weed on Irris shore, in the parish of Clonmannv, county of Donegal, found a bottle which had been thrown out by his Majesty's ship Furv, Capt. Parry, in lat 62. 8. N. long. 62- 27. W. The coun- tryman, anxious to ascertain the contents of the bottle, conceiving it contained something which might be valu- able to him, instantly broke it and found a paper, on which was inserted the following in seven different lan- guages :— " H.

Conside: able doubts had for some time past been entertained fori the safety of this vessel, and, indeed, so late' as tiie last week insurances to a greot amount, were effected at the rate of 14 per cent. Besides a valuable . cargo, she had rom £ 150,000 to £ 200,00;) in specie, on board. . ILFIIACOMBE, - April G.- The schooner Olive Branch, ofTeignmouth, Peter Mann master, bound to Bristol, with a . general . cargo, was, brought into this port in a sinking state. She was seen near. Lmuly Island bv a Pill pilot- skiff with her colours in the shrou Is, and when, boarded the crew were about to quit her,, the boat being hoisted out, and their clothes placed therein. By greal exertions at the pumps and the skiff towing, the vessel was got into this harbour on Tuesday- forenopn. When the tide ebbed from her, it was discovered that five holes had been bored from within, through her bottom, to sink her ; three are in the Captain's state- room and two in the lockers in the cabin. The vessel is the sole pro- perty ofthe master, and is insured at Lloyd's. The mate, . the Captain's spn, has since absconded Tne East India Company's ships Royal George and Bombay, from China, passed Portsmouth on Friday for the Downs. The Royal George sailed from China, the 13th December, arrived at St Helena the 16th February," and sailed from then'ce for England on the 20th of the same month. The Bombay sailed from China the 7th December. Left the Inglis at anchor off Lucepara, in the Straits ofBanea, on the 24th of De- cember, arrived at the Cape the 3d of February, sailed from thence on the 13th, arrived at St. Helena on the 22d, and resumed her voyage to England on the 26th ofthe same month. The Minerva arrived at the Cape on the 4th of February, and was left there on the 13th by the Bombay. LOSS OF THE, SHIP BLENDEN MALL. Extract of a letter from Messrs. Goodwin, Curling, & Co. agenis to Lloyd's, at Deal and Ramsgate', dated Deal, April 19:— The Blenden Hull, Captain Oreig. from London to Bombay, was totally lost on Inaccessible Island, one of the group of Tri. tan D'Acunha, in the South Atlantic Ocean, on the 23.1 July la^ t. The commander, officers, and passengers, got save on shore, , but. eight of the crew perished. Tluy re- mained on the island, exposed to the cold and rain, until the 8th of November, on which day the carpenter, and three or tour of the crew, embarked in a small punt, made out of the wreck with surgical instruments which were thrown on shore, and reached Tristan D'Acunha, where they procured two whale boats, and brought those that remained on Inaccessible Island away. On 9th January,, a brig from Brazils put into Tristan D'Acunha for water, and took them all away, and on the 18th January they arrived safe at the Cape. The carpen- ter and boatswain came home in the Phoenix. Captain G.. was waiting for one of the Company's ships, hourly expected, when the Phuetlix sailed, on 2d February. During the lime they were on the island, they had no food hut penguins and their eggs. Out of some bales of cloth, washed on shore, they made tents ; an iron buoy, saw- ed in two. was their only cooking utensil. They were for four days exposed to heavy rains and intense cold, before they could procure lire. The ladies and passengers suffered severely, nothing being saved but the clothes they wore, the ship going to, pieces two hours after she struck. Capt. G. and son were in perfect health on the 2d February. I MARKETS, Sc. AVERAGE PRICES OF CORN.

CO li N EXCHANGE, April 19. Having but little fine Wheat at market, in proportion to that of inferior quality, prime samples were in tolerable de- mand this morning, and obtained full as good prices as on Monday: but we have no buyers for the ordinary descriptions, which have only a nominal value. Superfine malting Barley is rather dearer, but there is no amendment in price of the siained and inferior samples— The Oat trade is brisker, and from Od. to Is. per quarter higher than on Monday.

Tiie very best beef in the market sold at 8s, and 8s. 6d. a- stone ; and very good beef was bought, considerably cheaper. As there were neither ewes nor lambs brought to the hughts, the supply of sheep was scanty ; and the demand being good, the whole stock was soon sold of, and the prices of wedders, both ofthe black and white faced breeds, ran from 22s. to 26s. 6d. a- head. SKIPTON FORTNIGHT FAIR, April 9.— Our fat and lean fair both happening to be on one day, caused this place to be very busy. We had an abundant supply of prime fa'- beasts, but cannot quote higher prices than last fair. Pile . show of lean cattle was very large, and experienced rather a brisk sale, hut wiih little advance in price. We had a good many south country dealers, which helped the cattle off a little sharper than otherwise would have been the case. At Ledbury Fair on Monday se'ennjght, ( here was a large and remarkable line show of cattle, but the sale was very dull, at the usual reduced prices. Good horses sold well, but the inferior ones were in little demand. Cheese, best making, averaged 48s. to 50s. and two- meal, 35s. lo 36s. per cwt. At Thrisk Fair ( Yorkshire), on Saturday week, there was a great show of cattle for sale, which were sold at low prices. There was also a great quantity of Leather, which was sold at prices about the same as at tbe fair at that place in February last. Wigton annual Laity Fdir was held on Saturday week, when there was a numerous show" of cattle ofthe lono- horned and Scots breeds, both fat and lean, which were in little de- mand, it being Calculated that only one- ninth part of what were exposed for sale were sold, and those at prices Considerably re- duced since December 1821. MULLING A R FAIR— At our fair, on. Monday last, there was a great show of black cattle and pigs, and although - the buyers were numerous and from many parts ofthe kingdom, prices were lamentably low. Graziers, who offered their cattle for sale,' some nfne. or twelve moiiths- ago, and could not think of taking what was then allowed to be a saving price, were obliged lo dispose of them at this fair considerably und^- r what they formerly refused. If we except the linen trade, exclusively confined to a comparatively small portion ofthe north, Ireland has rio other dependence than her cattle and agriculture ; wjien these have failed to afford her any effectual aid, we really know of no adequate resource.— Westmeath Journal.

The shock of an earthquake was very distinctly felt at Crieff and neighbourhood, betwixt nine and 10 o'clock, on the morning of the 18th inst. The shock was so severe at Ferntowc- r, the seat of Sir David Baird, as to set the bells" of the honse a- ringing, Extract of a letter, dated Connie, 15th April:— About half past nine on Saturday ( the 13th iustj w/ iil^ at breakfast, we were visftcd with tile smartest shi>< f!^ » f an earthquake that has heed felt in this neighbemrhotftt for the last fifteen, or twenty years. It was accompanied by two very loud reports, one apparently above Our head.-, and the other, which followed immediately afterwards, under our feet. The noise of these, which were much more terrific than thunder, lasted, I should think, fully 30 seconds. It set our kitchen utensils a- ringing, and brought down some of the covers of the pots and pans. I have felt much severer shocks in the West Indies, but not accompanied with such a noise, The sensation it created in me was exactly like that I have felt on tho deck of a vessel on her guns being discharged. A young man in Methven, lately paid his addresses to a voting damsel of the same place. After tiie banns of marriage had been proclaimed, the maiden thought proper to draw back.

THE Austrian official journalists, who so long have . maintained that there would be no war between Russia and Turkey, now inform their readers, that war is in- deed, certain, but tliey. cannot see why that should have any effect in brinoino down the value of Austrian sectiri- ties. the war they say is just and n c. cssftry, and every good christian must heartilv wish success to the arms of Russia. The Editor of the Morning- Chrnnicle, surpriz- ed at this sudden conversion, exclaims—" What ! and are not Lord LONDONDERRY, Lord LIVERPOOL, and our LOUD CHANCELJ- OR. who talks so feelingly about his conscience, nut good Christians ? Aye ! tl\ at they are, Christians of the first water; Bible Society and Suppression of Vice Christians too !— and vet they wish well to the Grand Signior, as a legitimate all prosperity and tranquillity.'" To be sure, it would have been more agreeable had the Emperor A LEX AND EH paid sotne respect to the plans of our Hibernian State Physician, and abstained iron) disturbing the Reposcof Europe by firing of guns, and in indictment language committing acts of violence with swords, sticks, and so forth ; and by the bye Christianity ought not to be propagated by force of arms. But the Northern Autocrat is wilful, and the reasoning of our Statesmen is upon him altoge- ther lost. As he formerly silenced Lord LONDON- DERRY, when making a Specch about the independ- ence of Poland, by the laconic observation—" My Lord, I have Ji. ve hundred thousand men in Poland"—- so we suspect, lie would briefly mention the returns of his ar lilies assembled on the Pruth, were he now rt quested to abstain from ftny attack upon the Turks. In fact, he knows his power— and now that NAPOLEON has been removed, no matter by what means, he feels himself at full liberty to act bv and for himself. The sudden change of the language of the Austrian Journals has given rise to the supposition, that more than an armed neutrality is intended, and that there is a design of partitioning the Turkish Empire ; and were such a plan successfully exe- cuted, the Spanish Revolution would then be the object of hostility to the Holy Alliance— but at present this is mere conjecture. That the Russian armies arc by this time upon the advance is generally believed ; and it is said, that a descent in the vicinity of Constantinople will lie made in great force By the latest accounts, the Russian fleet in the Black Sea was ready for service ; but as yet, we have heard nothing ofthe immense num- ber of transports necessary for tbe conveyance of such an army. That the Greeks will appear as auxiliaries in this great expedition cannot be doubted— and as they, single handed, have already resisted the Turkish naval pcTwer, there can be no doubt ofthe issue, when they have the assistance of the Russian fleet. The comn and of the seas is of thegrcutcst impprtance to invaders, for by making feints, they tfiay wear out their enemies by con- stant marches, so that at last, - when the descent really takes place, no effectual resistance . can be made. The preparations on the part ofthe Sublime Porte are upon a great scale ; and very probably, the Turkish armies may be superior in numbers to their assailants, but in every other respect inferior lievond comparison. Yet we'fit, d it reported, in some of the London journals, that the success of Russia is by no means certain in this great cnterprize ; no doubt the race is not always to the swift,- nor the battle to the strong, but as the Russian army, excellently well appointed, is in the highest state of discipline, while the Turkish force can be considered as nothing better than an irregularly armed mob, the result may be anticipated with confidence, treachery out ofthe question. It were idle to indulge in corijectures, what consequences shall follow upon the overthrow of the Ottoman power— fot assuredly they are not foreseen even by tbe Statesmen of Russia. The shock will be felt far and wide, and in the present state of society great changes mav take place, not at this time in the contem- plation of the human mind. ! The history connected with the dismission of Sir B. BLOOMFIELD, from his situation in his Majesty's household, is not a little curious and interesting, as given in the public prints, and we have no reason to doubt the authenticity of the narrative, which is in substance this : His Majesty made the Marchioness of CoNYINGflAM a present of a diamond necklace in summer 1820, and upon seeing it worn upon the first public occasion by her daughter, Lady FRANCES CONYNGIIAM, told the Marchioness that he had intended it as a decoration for her own person ; but the Ladv said, that it better be- came her daughter and for herself she wanted a i> ia- mond Stomacher, which was accordingly procured. The price of the Nccklace and Stomacher, amounted to seventy thousand pounds— an order upon the Treasury was given for the amount, it would appear, as a matter of course. Lord LIVERPOOL, however, engaged in the prosecution of the Queen, and somewhat unpopular, as well as other great folks at the time, declined comply-, ing with the order, stating, that there being at preseut such a disposition to cavil at public expenditure, he could notconsent that the sum should be paid by the Treasury, adding something about the Privy Purse. His Lord- ship's communication was received . bv Sir B. BLOOM- FIELD, as the journals have it. at an unlucky time ;• and having some reasons to be shy of the announcement of unpleasant intelligence, he resolved to keep the Letter in retentis. A second order upon the Treasury was however presented cosne months ago, when Lord LIVER- POOL immediately posted off to Brighton, aud in con- sequence ofthe explanations that took place, Sir. BEN- JAMIN was dismissed from office, and his place suppli- ed by the appointment of Lord F. CONYNGHAM, the second son of the amiable Marchioness. THE VELOCITY STEAM YACHT, ANDREW CKANE, COMMANDER, WILL continue to sail from ABERDEEN every MONDAY and FRIDAY, at Six o'Clock in the Morning; and from NEWHAVEN, near Leith, every TUESDAY and SATURDAY, at the same hour— calling iff Stonehaven, Montrose, Arbroath, Crail, Anstruther, and Kiie- till further notice. The Public are respectfully informed, that this fine Vessel has undergone considerable improvements si ace last season, and no expence has been sp ired to render her un elegant, safe, and comfortable conveyance for Passengers. From tbe superiority ofthe Vessel, and the weH known at- tention and experience of Captain CHANS. wh-> has been many years in the Aberdeen and Leitli trade, it is hoped the VELOCITY will be fnund worthy of a continuance of tlie liberal patronage she experienced last season For farther Information, apply at the Aberdeen, Leilh, and Clyde Shipping Co.' s Office, Uuay, Aberdeen ; or at their Office, Dock Gates, Leitli. Aberdeen, April 15, IS22, even receiving stolen gftods, lie . admitted— but lie contended, that this had done the plaintiff no in- jury; besides, Said he, " there Waft no malicious intention in these statemSli'fs, thev were merely put forth in the way of political Warfare !" Why did not this pleader Urge, as his clients themselves did upon a former Occasion— that they, being Englishmen, must necessarily life men of ItOnOirf— that they published false accusaticths with the very best intentions in the world, in order to support our politicaffiistitutioha, as row happilv administered ? It is highly probable, that a good deal of tlie private history of this Journal will come abroad ; for although the fines and damages awarded may be paid for the Editors, the chance is, that some of them, like BoutfnvtCK, may turn evidence for tile public, and make disclosures. STATE OS IRELAND.— The state of~ that unhappy country was brought under the particular notice of Par- liament bv Sir JOHN NEWPORT on Monday evening ; and although the ministerial vote prevailed, much valua- ble information has been communicated tb the public, which must be productive of the best effects. Ireland is an oppressed and enslaved country ; and although Mr. GOTTLBOEJKNE attempted to say, that the misgovern- iment of the country was solely attributed to King John, the fact is most notorious, that the Vite- regal Govern- ment of that country has been ever notorious for Oppres- sion, abuses, and jobs of 1 he very worst description.—• Mr. C. GRANT opposed Sir J. NEWPORT'S motion upon the ground, that his Majesty's Ministers had some measures in view for the relief of Ireland, just as the Lord Advocate has a salvo for the grievances of the Scottish Burgesses. Upon this occasion, tire speeches of Mr. SPUING RICE and Mr. PLUNKF. TT were truly admirable ; and that, of Mr. ELLIS was in so far good, that it gave a very fair idea of the esprit de corps of the Dublin. Corporation. BIRTHS - At Kinnriundy. oiithe 12th inst.

At Aberdeen, on the ] 4th curt. Mr. JOHN I. OGIE ARNOLD, son of the late JOIIN ARNOLD. Esq. Calcutta, in the 14th year of his age : a very promising young man, and of a sweet and amiable disposition.

The Beacon it appeari, is again to make its appear- ance, not iti Scotland, but in tbe Metropolis, where it will no doubt enjoy the Patronage of the Bridge Street Association, shaving the labours and partaking of the honours of the JOHN* BULL. Whether it is to receive pecuniary and literary support from Scotland we are not as yet informed— but we understand, it is to be conduct- ed upon the PRINCIPLES SO much approved by " men in high official situations. The Editors of the JOHN BULL have again been convicted of malieious falsehood in the Court of King's Bench, and found liable in £ 500 . damages to Mr. Alderman WAITHMAN. These Edi- tors having already officially admitted, that they had de libcrately published wilful falsehoods, the trial would in this case be altogether without interest, were it not for the argument made use of by their Counsel in pleading mitigation of punishment. That they had falsely accus- ed Mr. WAITHMAN of dealing in contraband goods, aad play of squibs, crackcrs, a nd bonfire?, while tnanv loyal ar, 4 convivial parties met to commemorate tile occasion, by drinking our Sovereign's health. We understand, that tlie Association nf Students in Divinify here, in aid of the Diffusion of Christian Knowledge, have voted tile sum of Fifteen Pounds, to the funds of the Society at Inverness for the Education of the Poor in the Highlands, an Institution highly deserving the siippurt of every lover of his country aud of inanfcirid. We have heard that ' the man Nairne, lately imprisoned itt Ihe jail of Elgin, for stabbing his wife ifi several places, got out of custody the other day in ratheV an ingenious w- ay. Hi* Sister, according to our information, went to the Sheriff, and stated that she was tiie prisoner's v » ife, and had perfectly reco- vered of her Wounds, The story was believed, and N'airne go his liberation before Ihe trick was discovered. lie has of course absconded.— Inverness Courier. Two of the London smacks here, within these few days, have been brokeinto .-' nil rptibed of a variety of valuable article*. On Friday se'ennight, 8 or 9 blankets, several bed covers, and feather pillows, with three great coats, were abstracted from the cabin of the Cato ; and on the night between Tuesday amd Wednesday last, from that of the Regent, there were carried off 15 or 16 blankets, 15 pairs of sheets, with some bed covers and feather pillows, a pair of pistols, and several bottles of brandy, as also various small articles Tbe depredators ap- peared to have regaled themselves with two bottles of brand?, before leaving the calriil of tile latter vessel ; from which it is supposed, that there were several concerned in this daring and nefarious business. We understand, that part of the blankets and sheets have been found in the sand among the bents; near the bathing machines, and that some suspicious characters have been taken into custody. About the middle of last week, a man came into a public house in the Back Wynd bete, and after ordering supper to Ire prepared for several people, began to drink pretty freely from a Bottle of Whisky, which he took from his pocket. None of hisexpeetCd companions appeared, and it was soon found ne- cessary to pitt him to bed, ns he seemed rather intoxicated, and complained lit tfia same time of being unwell. In the course of the night, the people in the house paid Id in several visits, without observing any particular change or cause uf alarm, until the morning, when be was found lifeless. The body was afterward, laid out in Drum's Aisfe, for two days, and no per- son having claimed it, was decently interred in the Church* yard here on Monday last. The deceased appeared to be a middle- aged man, was dres- ed in blue clothes, and said hh name wa* John Macdonald. FIRE BNGINES.— Mr. John Leith who has hitherto had the management of the Fire Engines belonging to the Commissioners of Police, having resigned his charge, the Engines have now been committed lo David I. ongmuir. Over- seer of the Police. Regent Street. Y,' e are desired to state, for the information of the public, that in the event ofa fire taking place, information thereof should be instantly given at the Watch House, as the surest means of obtaining an early attendance with the Engines. The Gentlemen composing the Jury in ihe cause SORUTON against CATTO, & c. have paid to the Treasurer of the General Institution for the Education of the Deaf and Dumb, in aid of its funds, the sum of Six Guineas, being the allowance made to them as Jurymen on the above trial. On Monday last, a meeting of Ihe Ship- owners of this port was- hefd in the New Inn ; the Lord Provost in the chair — when it was resolved to petition the Legislature against certain parts of the Bill lately introduced into Parliament by Mr. Wallace, on the subject of our maritime laws, which appeared to the meeting to be fraught with consequences highly injurious to the British Ship- owner, and calculated to shake the naval preponderancy of the country, by doing away the essence of that great bulwark of our naval rights, the Act 12. Charles 11, commonly called the Navigation Act. The Petition has been very numerously signed, and has been transmitted by the Lord Provost lo be presented to Parliament. The Treasurer of the Aberdeen Education Society, has re- ceived from a friend to the Institution, by the bands of R. Morrice, Esq. Advocate, Five Pounds ster. And the follow- ing letter, enclosing a One Pound Note, has been received h\ the Secretary : — " Institutions similar to that ofthe ' Aberdeen Education Society, on the plan of Mutual Instruction,* have experienced very beneficial effects from being provided with a juvenile library, and miking the use of tbe books one ofthe rewards of merit. A few pounds would probably answer the purpose ; and it is requested that the enclosed One Pound Note may be forthwith applied to the purchase of Books, suitable to such a purpose, bv way of a beginning." MR. PUTNAM'S RECITATION,— We were much pleased with Mr. Putnam's Recitations at ihe Argyll Rooms last night. His selection of pieces is very judicious, and liis delivery very chaste and elegant. He has the utmost variety of subject, from the deepest pathos to the lightest gaiely, and yet there is not on the whole a single line or allusion which is at variance with the purest and best feelings; and, while every piece is given with due effect, there is none of that broad mouthing and ranting which, in most of our pretenders to elo- cution, are so offensive to good taste. His is not " the true Ilerricoles vein— a tyrant's vein— a part to tear a cat in ;" neither does he ' roar you, as it were, a sucking turtle," in all ihe lisping mawkishness of an affected miss. He adapts the tone very accurately to the sentiment, and suits on the act. very gracefully to the word. His audience was numerous and very genteel ; and we were not at all surprised at the applause which he received. That applause was, however, of the same chaste and dignified character as the delivery of the reciter.— The audience were held in mute and almost breathless atten- tion during the recital of each piece, and gave their roll of sus- tained thunder only at each close. A considerable number of very interesting females were present ; and a physiognomist would have found a high intellectual treat in contemplating, upon their features alternately glowing and sad. the effects of those powers of enunciation and of action which arrested ' their attention. We felt confident, that, from the tnore intellectual part of a London audience, Mr. Putnam could not fail to meet with encouragement. He deserves it. We have known him for many years, and we have ever been of opinion that the elegance of his manners and the accuracy of his conduct in private life, are every way accordant with his professional abili- ties. To have said this before Mr. Putnam began his profes- sional labours in the metropolis, might have been considered as the partiality of friendship, but we can now do it without hesitation, as our opinion must be confirmed by the voluntary sufliages of all who have heard him.— True Briton. The Guildrv Incorporat oil of Perth, met on Tuesday last, iu their hall, to take the Lord Advocate's bill into considera- tion. After tbe bill was read and considered by the meeting, it found only four supporters, in the person ofthe Dean of Guild, and three Baillies. It was agreed to petition against the whole measure, and that the petition should be entrusted to Lord A. Hamilton. The other public bodies of Dundee have followed the ex- ample ( fthe Hammermen Incorporation, in passing resolutions against the Lord Advocate's bill. MEMBERS OF ASSEMBLY.

The fine brig Palladium, Crabb, which sailed from this, place on the 9th ult. for Riga, has not since been heard of ; and as her boats were found on the Jutland coast near Ilt » bsnaut, about the 1 Itli ult. there is too much reason to fear, that the vessel with all on board met a melancholy fale, in the tremen- dous gale of that day, which proved so. destructive to the ship- prng on that dangerous coast, as appeared by the many vessel** missing, and great Quantity of v^ reck cast ashore.

A second Letter from li. has been received, upon the sub- ject of his former. communication— the decay of Literature. We have not room for its insertion this week, and as a second Letter from M. is in types, perhaps rt' may be better for our first Correspondent to hear bis antagonist out, before entering npon his reply. He may have his Letter, which appears to have been hastily written, upon, application, should- bc thiuk any alterations neces- arv. The Song by a School Bur/, although not sufficiently co/ rcct for publication, is not without merit; and: if the young aspir- ant to the favourable regards of the Muses persist, he ha » a fair prospect of success. We give as a specimen, his two GisJ- verses. — The subject is his Majesty's Birth- day. " Come lot us sing, God save the King* An* dance an' drink, an' a' that, An' he that winna join the King, A saul- less dunce we ca* that. For a' that., an* a that, Guid cause we hae for a* that. King . George is guid. gin wicked cheels } Vad only let him shaip that." Hang the Rogues f We are still obliged to defer M. ys second Letter, but hT shall positively appear in our next number. Several other Communications have beyn received, and shall be attended to. POSTSCRIPT; LONDON, April 23. New York papeis have been received to the 25th ult. They contain the. report of the Committee of Foreign Affairs to the House of Representatives oif the . message of the President, recommending the recognition of the independence of the Spanish colonies. The Committee entirely concur with the President, and unanimously declare it to be just and expedient to acknowledge the independence of the several nations in South America, without any reference to the < fiversity in their forms of government. They also recommend a sum of 100,000 dollars to be placed at the disposal of the President, for the purpose of carrying this measure into effect. It is mentioned that the Spanish Ambassador has formally protested against this proceeding. On Sunday, a Cabinet Council was held at the ' Foreign Office, Downing Street, which assembled at two o'clock, and continued in deliberation for about three hours, not breaking up till five. All the Cabinet Ministers were present. The whole of the King's establishment have left Brighton. Mavijuisses Conynghamand Londonderry* Lord Mountcharles^ Sir W. Knighton, and Mr. Walker, the apothecary^ are to at- tend his Majesty in his ensuing visit to the Continent. Mar- chioness of Conyngham and Londonderry jt in the Royal escort at Car is ami Vienna.
