LONDON, THURSDAY, APRIL 25. Advices dated the 10th of February were re- ceived on Saturday from Rio de Janeiro. It was known by the previous accounts that the Portu- guese troops, after a fruitless attempt to excite an insurrection in the capital when the Prince's in- tention to remain in Brazil was declared, had been placed in quarters at Praya Grande, previous to their embarkation for Europe. Though awed at that time into submission, they liail subsequently assumed a holder tone, and declared their intention not to be shipped, except hy force, on hoard of the transports prepared for them. A contest was therefore expected by the inhabitants, and con- sternation reigned in the city. The crisis was averted only by the energy and presence of mind of the Prince Royal. He repaired in person on board one of the frigates in the bay, which he ordered to be made ready for action ; the gun- boats were also manned, and received similar orders. The native Brazilian troops, under the command of General Corrode, were instructed to surround the troops at Proya Grande on Ihe land side, and all tha inhabitants were compelled to quit that district. The Prince then sent for the Officers of the Portuguese troops on board his frigate, and explaining to them their situation, urged an im- mediate embarkation. A demand was made in behalf of the troops of three months arrear of pay, and a promise was given by the Prince that one month should be paid immediately^ and the re- mainder when on board the transports. This was refused, as some letters state, in a manner per- sonally insulting to the Prince, and the Officers returned to Praya Grande. The Prince passed the night on the water, animating the men, and arranging the mode of attack in the morning by the gun boats. He had intimated his intention, it is said, of himself firing the first gun. This occurred O'l the evening of 9th February. On the 10th, in the morning, the Portuguese troops were seen striking their tents, and continued during the day to embark their baggage. A messenger was sent off to the Prince stating their submission, and oil the following day the greater part of them were on board the transports. This event removed the agitation which previously reigned in the city ; business was renewed, and assumed a more favour- able appearance. One circumstance alone damped the general satisfaction. In the commencement of the alarm, the Princess Royal and her family had been conveyed to Santa Cruz. The infant Prince, owing to the exposure to the heat, by travelling in an open carriage, was attacked by a disorder which proved fatal. The Portuguese troops sailed for Lisbon on the 10th, under convoy of two frigates. The Lady Arabella packet has arrived at Fal- mouth, after a long passage from Lisbon. The advices do not reach to a later date than the end of last month. An important crisis in the Brazils seemed to be looked for daily; indeed some sur- prise had been occasioned hy the continuance of public tranquillity in the several provinces which had so often, since the revolution, shewn a strong disposition to renounce the authority of tbe Mother Country. Tbe King of Portugal is represented as deeply affected at the approaching loss of his South American Colonics, and by the want of money to carry on the Government at home. Petitions similar to those presented to the King of Spain had been laid before his Majesty, praying him to adopt measures to afford relief to the commercial portion of iiis subjects, by withdrawing the high duties imposed on foreign goods and manufactures. On this subject the letters are couched in the usual terms of despondency, and a very faint hope seemed to he entertained that any change would be made. The King, it is said, has replied to the Petitions, that it will remain for the Cortes in its wisdom to decide on those measures which are best calculated to prove advantageous to the king- dom, whether of a commercial or political nature, and that he declines to take any step without the sanction of that Body.

On Thursday there arrived advices from Con- stantinople^ the 16th ult. which are of a favourable character. It has been remarked that the Porte has throughout these negotiations, invariably met with hauteur thc proposals of the Mediating Powers, though it afterwards adopted them, by reserving all the merit to itself. Yet in all its notes il has not failed even in a single instance, to express a deep sense of the friendly views upon which tbe interference of England is grounded. Its confi- dence too, in this country, seems to increase, as the time of decision approaches. It never manifested for any European Power, the respect, which in the course of these perilous circumstances, it has evinced for our Government. To thc good offices of the latter, the publication of the amnesty, and the consequent security of the Greeks who have not joined in the revolt, are in a chief degree due. This is one effect of the honourable neutrality observed by this country, and it has saved the lives of thousands of Christians, who would otherwise have been immolated to the vindictive passions of ths Turks. Had a more lax course been followed, and the Ionian Islands heen thrown open without reserve to the Insurgents, the Porte would perhaps have rejected our mediation; and, left to the impulses of resentment alone, would have probably sacrificed all the Greeks it could have seized, without any distinction. The course that has been followed hy this Government, has therefore the sanction of humanity, as well as of a wise policy, 10 its favour. It has checked the tide of revenge and slaughter ; it has evidently prevented the Porte from rushing blindly into a war with Russia; ano has probably been the means of averting the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire, and the sub jection of its finest provinces to a Power, whose greatness, even at this moment, is a causc of jusf alarm. . A Letter from Constantinople to the 24lli of March, received Ihis morning, says—" To treat 011 politics I have not time, things are now quiet, and nothing new transpired with regard lo the question of war or peace.— The Turkish fleet has had au action with thc Greek in the Gulf of Palras ; the former was victorious, aud Iheir conduct has been highly praised by the Captain of the Rose sloop of war, who saw the whole transaction. The Greeks losl one vessel, aud were 71 in number. The Turks chased them for several hours. A squadron, consisting of six ships of the line, as many frigates, and about twenty sloops, ships, brigs, Si. c. are in readiness, and have drawn from thc arsenal here. They will sail as soon as they are manned, and will form a junction with the others already at sea. The Greeks, I am afraid; will go to the wall in a few weeks." Turkish Justice.— The Turkish Ambassador, who was at Paris in 1798, bought a diamond of a Jeweller in that city. While the bargain was concluding, one of his people stole a ring. A liltle child saw it, and told her falher after the Turk was gone. The jeweller immediately wrote to the Ambassador, who sent him word that he should wait 24 hours. After the expiration of this time, thc jeweller received a box directed to him, which be opened, and found in it the head of the thief, with thc ring between his teeth ! His Majesty's Birth- Day falling so late as the 12th of August, the celebration took place, by command of His Majesty, 011 Tuesday last, being St. George's Day, which was considered to be- better calculated for the encouragement of trade, as London is then fuller lliau at any olher time of the year. His Majesty accordingly held a Draw- ing Room at his Palace in Pall- Mail. The com. panv began lo arrive soon after 12 o'clock, and continued silting down till between four and five. It was considered one of the most numerous antl splendid assemblages that has met for some years, combining Ihe youth and beauty of the Nobility,, and of the ancient anil distinguished families of the kingdom. His Majesty, accompanied by the Duchess of Kent, the Princesses Augusta and Sophia Matilda, received the numerous presenta- tions in the Grand Saloon. The presentation dresses were most costly, and there was also a great display of jewels. Thc adjoining apart- meuts were filled with company whose splendid and costly dresses exceed all attempt at description. Amongst Ihc distinguished personages present were the Dukes of Montrose, Wellington, and Athol; Duchesses of Montrose, Buckingham, Northumberland, and Athol ; Marquisses of Stafford, Anglesey, anil Cholmondeley ; Marchion- esses of Bath, Stafford, and Cholmondeley; Earls' of Liverpool, Uxbridge, Whitworth, and Talbot; Countesses of Mountnorris, Wilton, Grosvenor, aud Delawarr; Viscount Belgrave; Viscountess Belgrave; Lord Gwydvr ; Ladies Forester, Win. nington, Dallas, Glynne, Gwydyr, Williams Wynn, and J.

CONTINENT.—; The Foreign Journals are full of neconnts of pre pa rations for the reception of the King of England in various pans of the Continent, e « pecially" Ger- inauy. His Majesty w ill visit Cologne, Bonn, Cob- lentz, there cross the Rhine to inspect Ihe almost impregnable fortress of Ehrenbreitstein, Johannis. burg, ihe seat of Prince Metternicb, Wiesl- ade. r, Frankfort ( and in lhat neighbourhood continue a day or two with his sister the Princess of Hesse Hnmburg), Darmstadt, Manheim, Heidelburg ( to see tbe great tun), Ludwigsburg, Stutgard ( where, with tbe Queen Dowager of Wirteinburg, late Princess Royal of England, lie will remain some time, not having seen her since she left her lirune) • from thence to ITIm, cross the Danube, and pass through Augsburgh lo Munich, afterwards over tha Plain of Hohenlinden lo Passau, or go at once to Regensbnrg, In visit Ibe falher of tbe Princess Esler- hazv, and there embark 011 the " Dark rolling Dan- ube" for Vienna. It is said his Majesty lias ex. pressed a wish lo slop at the fine city of Leniz, also' at the noble Convent at Molk ; also' to inspect the tine ruin in which the lion- hearted Richard was eon- fined.— The Marquis of Hastings, who is on his return from his Government in India, has been ap- pointed Ambassador lo Austria ; he does not come here, but is expected lo meet the King of England at Vienna. Tbe spoi ls nnd pnstimcs in preparation by ihe Emperor of Austria, are reported to be on a scale of uncommon magnificence; nil the peliv Princes and inferior Kings in Germany will assist n't these banquets. Iiis Majesty has promised to visit tbe Principality of Esterhazy, in Hungary, and return by way of Prague, Toplitz, and Dresden. Should Ibe stale of the road permit, he will go from thence to Berlin, and take Hanover 011 bis way home. Paris is included in llie lour, but in what stage ol it is 11. t yet determined. The Marquis of Conyngham, Marquis of Lon- donderry, Lord Mouutcharles, Sir Wm. Knighton and Mr. Walker, the apothecary, are to attend his Majesty to ihe Continent. The Marchionesses of Conyngham and Londonderry are to join the Royal escort at Paris and at Vienna. FRANCE.— The Quotidienne contains a lefier from the Duke de Fitzjames, which gives an afflicting detail of the devastation which has been produced by Ihe diabolical arls of incendiaries in the Department de I'Oise, and soliciting a public, subscription for t lie relief of the numerous families who are in consequence reduced to indigence. " III designing men," says the Noble writer, " have availed themselves of the public dismay which has been exciled by this system of burning, to provoke commotion, by circulating calumnies against the Nobles and Clergy, affirming that they have in view to revenge themselves upon the purchasers of national properly. The most august names an; not respected, and absurdity is mingled with villainy by their directing against Ihc King and his Government Ihc despair of the wreTchcd victims of these heinous combinations." Tho Constitutionnel says—" We are assured that The Morning Chronicle is to be prohibited from entering Fiance; ii is eieu added, that Ih" FI ench ambassador at London must prefer a com- plaint before the English t ribunals against the number of that paper, which has already been seized in Paris." Thursday last being Ihe County Day for Mid- dlesex, a very numerous attendance of Magistrates took place ai the Sessions House, Clerkenwell, and after transact ing ( he public business, they adjourned to their private room, when a report was made by tbe Committee appointed to investigate the late Treasurer's accounts, by which it appeared, that the whole arrears amounted to £ 17,505. 12s. fiid • the bonded security in favour of the County is altogether £ 12.000 ; and there are other circum- stances in the case from which it is probable that more may he recovered. A long discussion then took place, relative to Ihe office of Treasurer, w hen Sir R. Baker declared himself a candidate, and Mr. Serjeant Sellon and Dr. Gwynne withdrew themselves in favour of that gentleman, and he is at present the only Magistrate who is a Candidate - the future security to be given was fixed at £ 20,000. HOUSE OF COMMONS— THURSDAY. Iri presenting a petition from the agriculturists FIF Leicestershire, Mr KECK said that no language could adequately express tlie distress under which the graziers of that county laboured.— Petitions of a similar nature were also presented from Shropshire and other places. PARLIAMENTARY REFORM, L ord J. RUSSELL rose to bring forward this great question. The course he would take would he to p- opose a resolution that the present state of the re- presentation required llie most serious consideration and. if he should succeed in carrying that resolution, lie should follow it up by moving for leave to bring in a hill lo reform the mode of representation. The present period was favourable to this discussion, be- cause we were tranquil at home and at peace with the world. Jacobinism and insurrection were no longer objects of present apprehension. He would rather follow the plan of others, than suggest a plan of Reform himself for the adoption of the House. Already tiie country had expressed its wishes as to t;> e extent of Reform, necessary in a House which it was intended should represent the people of this country. It never could he meant that this House should represent the interests of the Crown, or of the Members of the House of Lords. In point of fact, then, did the House represent the people ? Within the last 40 years a great and important change bad taken place iu the country, owing to the increase of our national wealth, by agricultural, mercantile, and manufacturing improvements. From 1782 to 178r, the average export of manufactures had been 13 millions ; from 1702 to 1700, the export had been 17 millions; arid in tbe last year amounted to 40 millions. The progress of education had also been great : and one author was saiil to have received £ 80,000 as the reward of his literary labours. One bookseller alone sold annually to the amount of five, millions of volumes, paid £ 5000' for advertisements, and employed 600 clerks. At one period, there were only four circulating libraries iu London, the number now was above 100; and the increase had been equally great, in the country. The Lnncnsteriari Schools had been followed by the National Schools, with distinguished success; and knowledge had been disseminated by cheap editions of standard works, until one of the Acts passed in 1819, for the suppression of education and information ( a laugh!) materially checked the progress of both. In 1790, the number of Newspapers had been 114, and iu 1821, thoy amounted to 284. The question was, had Government kept pace with the improvement in the public mind? The necessity of such an equality of progression seemed indisputable; had it not been stated, that on account of the enlightened state of the people, useless offices should be kept up ; wbich was in fact to say, that as the people became more • enlightened, the Government should be more cor- rupt? The Noble Lord here quoted a statement from a calculation, made by a Noble Friend of his, of the number of Members who had voted with or against Ministers on the question of retrenchment ; nnd it appeared that almost all the Members for small boroughs of 1000 or 2000 inhabitants voted with Ministers, while their supporters decreased as the boroughs increased in population. On ihe question of the Salt Tax, when the numbers had bpp. o 100 to 1(? 4, there had been only 14 County Members in tbe Ministerial majority; on the question of the Postmaster- General, w hen the numbers had been 184 to 159, while on the side of Ministers, there had been only 34 Members for counties and large towns, no less than 69 had voted against the obnox- ious tax. The Ministers, indeed, might boast of tha confidence of the House of Commons; hut it was of a House of Commons that did not possess the con- fidence of the people. In a reformed Parliament, if their measures were not approved, Ministers might niter and vary them; and, if sanctioned by a reformed Parliament, they would also have the approbation of the country. Of the present Ministers he believed they wished to do ns little as possible, and only were anxious to keep their places, for which purpose they had called in the aid of what was termed the" Gren- ville Party." His Lordship commented with great severity on the conduct, of Members in the Grenville Interest; and proceeded to quote the opinions of Lord Clarendon, Mr. Locke, Justice Blackstone, Lord Chatham, Mr. Pitt, and Mr. Fox, who, however nt variance on other " subjects, coincided in their opinions on the subject of Parliamentary Reform. The people were now in such a state of iiyion, that they well knew how to guard their rights; aud he hoped t he- Whigs would give up their Boroughs, and consent to a Reform. Il was the opinion of that great Statesman, Sir W. Temple, that England could only be ruined by herself. As our ancestors ac- quired liberty for us, so our posterity wonld demand the same boon at our hands. He hoped that this Constitution, which had not lasted much more than 100 years, would rank with those of the highest antiquity. ( Repeated cheering.) The Noble Lord ( whose proposition was, in substance, to take 100 Members from the rotten boroughs, and give the right of electing that number to populous towns, at present not possessing the elective franchise,), con- cluded by moving his first Resolution. Mr. HORACE TWISS opposed the motion, which was supported by Lord FOLKSTONE, and further opposed by Mr. DUNCOMBE, and supported by Mr. DENMAN. Mr. C. W. W. WYNN was received with signs of impatience. It was by no means agreeable to him said, to claim the attention of the House, when it had already shown such marks of impatience ; but when it was considered that out of the five hours during which the debate had already lasted, only one half hour had been occupied with observations on the side of the question which lie supported, it was not asking, he thought, too much to he heard for a short time. This indulgence he expected with the more reason and justice, as the Noble Lord who introduced the motion had given him a personal motive for rising, by making it necessary to reply to a personal attack. In the course of his speech that Noble Lord, alluding to his ( Mr. Wynn's) family, had said that all classes of the nation, whether they abused the Whigs, the Ministers, or ihe Radical Reformers, al) looked npou the Grenvilles with particular abhor- rence. He ( Mr. Wynn) would not submit his cha- racter to the decision of the Noble Lord, or take the opinion of the country from him. On the contrary, he would appeal from his judgment to the sense of the country, and fearlessly oppose his own character to that of the Noble Lord. This might be called vanity, but some indulgence was due to the feelings of one who, while thus attacked, was conscious of the purity of his intentions, and knew that, whatever construction was put on his conduct, he had pursued a straightforward course. The Noble Lord had stated that he ( Mr. W.) and his friends, when they accepted of office, and had vacated their seats, had no constituents by whom they could be called upun to explain and justify their conduct as a condition of their re- election. To this he wonld reply, that he was returned . by as large and respectable a body of constituents as the Noble Lord. After he liad accepted of office, he went dow n to that body, and having informed them of his appointment, and ex- plained his reasons for again soliciting their suf- frages, he received their unqualified approbation, and was elected without opposition-. He vvas sorry to he obliged to obtrude any account of his personal concerns or personal conduct on the House; but everv man's character was dear to himself, and the attack which had been made upon him justified him in attempting to repel insinuations which he scorned, hy appealing to his Parliamentary life for evidence of his political consistency. When he first obtained a seat in Parliament, in 1797, he was directly opposed to those who occupied the opposite ( Opposition) benches, many of whom were the same gentlemen that now sat there. And why was he opposed to them ? Because he was convinced that, under the name of liberty, they advocated licentiousness; because he thought that, under the idea of support- ing the friends of freedom, they were encouraging and strengthening the enemies of the Constitution. After the party whom he then opposed agreed in the necessity of prosecuting the war against the enemies of real freedom, the differences between him and them ceased ; nnd without changing his principles, he voted generally with them. In 1817, he ( Mr. Wynn) found nearly the same state of things and the same disposition in the Hon. Gentlemen opposite as w hen he first entered the House. He found the same system of combining against the Constitution, the same system of Secret Meetings for illegal pur- poses, the same disposition to tumult, and the same feelings of disaffection. The Gentlemen opposite, in these circumstances, maintained the same conduct on the latter as on the former occasion. He did not complain of them for supporting their own consist- ency ; but if they were consistent in adhering to their side, he could not be called inconsistent for reverting tn his former opinions. In these circum- stances lie found the difference between himself and the gentlemen who sat on the benches opposite growing greater and greater every day. This was particularly manifest in the different views which they entertained ou tlie question of Reform, aud the necessity of the Six Acts of 1819, which in his opinion were indispensable for the salvation of the country. The Noble Lord had supposed the case of his ( Mr. Wynn's) being called to answer questions on the hustings relative to his reasons for joinino* an Ad- ministration which he had formerly opposed and he thought he could satisfactorily reconcile this appa- rent inconsistency. He had been opposed to Minis- ters on the question of the currency. That question had been se{ at rest by a measure in which Ministers and the House cordially concurred. All obstacles to an union on this topic had therefore been removed. After the peace, he had been opposed to Ministers on the subject of the standing army. He resisted their original estimates in 1816, because he believed* that they manifested the adoption of a military sys- tem— objectionable on account of its expense, but more objectionable from the dangers with which it threatened the Constitution. Such was the military establishment which he opposed in 1816; but he had since seen that military establishment reduced below any estimate which iie could previously have formed. The Noble Lord had adverted to his votes oil the proposed repeal of the Salt Tax at different periods, as evidence of his inconsistency; hut these likewise admitted of a satisfactory explanation. He was opposed to that tax before he accepted of office — he was so still. He thought if highly objectionable, and was of opinion that it ought to he repealed as soon as possible . consistently with the public welfare. The Gentlemen opposite had many of them opposed tiie income tax before their friends accepted of office, ahd when in office ihey had continued and increased it. In this they were not inconsistent; neither was he ( Mr. Wynn) in voting against the immediate re- peal of ihe salt tax, of which tax he as highly as ever disapproved. When the question came lately before the House, lie was of opinion that in the face of the pledges of Parliament to maintain a sinking fund of a certain amount, and during the progress ofa great financial operation, the success of which depended on the fidelity with which Parliament observed those pledges; he could not consent to the immediate sur- render of so great a portion of the public revenue as this tax supplied. Oil the question of abolishing Catholic disabilities, to which the Noble Lord had alluded, lie ( Mr. Wynn) still, maintained every opinion which he had ever expressed. The question was so important, the interests which it involved were so momentous, that he was willing to incur every sacrifice to accomplish the measure ; and if he had been of opinion that by refusing office he could have promoted ils success more than by accepting it, he could assure the House that he would not have hesitated for a moment to adopt the former course. With these views, it, was pleasing to him to reflect, that a Noble Marquis, whose views on this subject were similar to his own, had been placed at the head of the Irish Government, and that a Right Hon. Friend of his ( Mr. Pluhkett) had likewise come into office. These appointments he regarded as a pledge, that though that great measure itself might not he immediately Carried, it was only post- poned ; and in the mean time afforded the country a security that the laws would be administered with impartiality, and that the privileges which the Catholics of Ireland had already obtained, would not remain a dead letter, but would he executed in their true spirit, and. to their full extent. The Noble Lord had laid too much stress on the circumstance of some of his ( Mr. Wynn's) friends not having con- stituents, when he brought it forward as a disquali- fication for office. Suppose there should he a change of Ministry to- morrow, arid that the two Hon. Mem- bers for Knaresborougb ( SirJ. Mackintosh and Mr. Tierney) were promoted to office, would it he any reason against their appointment that they could not be examined by iheir constituents ? Having- said thus much in answer to the Noble lord'sobservations respecting him and his family, he ( Mr. Wynn) would now beg leave to say a few words on the subject of the motion before the House f Coughing)— but he would first revert to a part of the charge against him which he had nearly forgotten. He was accused of not only accepting office himself, but of bringing in two of his friends to the Board of Controul along with him. He could assure the House, that nothing would have given him greater pleasure than tliat his Right Hon. Friend tbe Member fur Christchureh ( Mr. St urges Bourne) had remained at the Board; but when he had long previously resolved to resign, it surely could not justly be made the subject of charge against him ( Mr. Wynu), that he advised the appointment of two of iiis friends, with whose talents and assiduity ho was best acquainted. He would now return to the Noble Lord's motion—( Coughing) — He would oppose the motion of the Noble Lord as too general and indefinite— fie would oppose it, because it condemned ihe existing order of things without suggesting a substitution, and because, from its vague nature, it would admit of the plan of the Noble Lord ( Folkstone) w ho spoke last, as well as any more limited Reform. Mr. CANNING then rose, and in a forcible and elo- quent appeal, which produced a powerful sensation on the House, maintained that it was not true that, the House of Commons was defective, because if did not respond to every impression of the people : that if the House of Commons should feel that ii was imme- diately deputed from the whole people, that it met to speak the wiil and not to consult for the benefit of the people, it must of necessity soon swallow up the whole power of fhe State ; that a House of Commons freely chosen, if admirable in theory, was not tii Constitution under which we lived : that the Mouse as at present brought together was perfectly compe- tent to the discharge of its functions, and therefore that the mode of its election was of secondary im portance. Mr. Canning concluded in the following terms:—" This, Mr. Speaker, may be the last op- portunity I shall ever have of raising my voice against such a measure as that now proposed by the Noble Lord. But should the Noble Lord succeed in carry ing this measure, and thereby bring on the country all those eviis which 5 anticipate from it, may his be the punishment, the having promoted such a measu — may mine he the consolation, the having opposed it."— Loud cheering. About two o'clock the House divided, when there appeared for the motion 164; against it 262 Majority 105.

COMMON COUNCIL. A Court; of Common Council w as held on Thursdays at Guildhall for the Election of Common Serjeant, at which 250 ' Members « ere present. Mr. Slade nominated Thomas Denman, Esq. who was seconded by Mr. Brogden ; and Mr. S. Dixon nominated Wm. Bolland, Esq. who was seconded hy Mr. C. Stuart. Scrutineers were then appointed, and the ballot commenced immediately, and was open till three o'clock, when it was closed, and the same being then taken and cast up, the numbers were as follow— Thomas Denman, Esq 131 William Bolland, Esq 119 Whereupon the Lord Mayor declared Mr. Den- man duly elected ; and he being sent for, was intro- duced and took his seat at the table. Mr. Denman then rose and said, that the feelings by which he was oppressed scarcely left, hiin the power to express them. If they Who had taken a part iu this great contest on either side were greatly affected, how much more so must he the individual on whom the honour of their choice had fallen. He could therefore only offer his deep and heartfelt thanks to this enlightened corporation for the dis- tinguished honour they had conferred upon him. Their conduct upon this occasion had been great aud noble. To the end of his life he should cherish the most lively gratitude to those who had supported him : towards those who had opposed him, his only feeling Was that of thankfulness for the temperate and honourable manner in which they had done so. So longas he lived, he should discharge his judicial duties uninfluenced hy party or political feelings; he should even, forget private affection and friend- ship. He should endeavour to show his friends that his conduct would reflect no discredit upon their choice ; and to prove to those who had opposed him that their opposition would have uo influence upon his mind beyond exciting an anxious desire to coil cilinte their feelings towards him. He had once more to express his most grateful thanks to the Court; and knowing that he could not. strengthen that ex- pression by lengthening this address, he sat clown in the hope that they would give him credit for the warmth of his feelings. The learned gentleman resumed his seat amidst loud cheers. MARRIED. On Saturday last, at Oswestry, hy the Rev. John Russel, Mr. Evans, draper, of'Welshpool, to Miss Davies, of the former place.

SAVINGS BANKS.— A practical proof of the great importance and utility of these excellent in- stitutions, wherein the lower ranks in society may safely deposit that portion of their earnings which in very many cases they were previously in the habit of squandering, or if not, of placing in the bauds of persons whose security or honesty too frequently turned out to be fallacious, we are happy to record in the increasing prosperity of the one established in the Abbey Parish in this town, in which, it appeared from the statement produced at- the General Annual Meeting of the Trustees held lasl week, that between August, 1816, and March 31,1818, there was deposited about £ 4220 In the year ending March 31, 1819 7390 1820 7450 1821 G840 1822 10,300 The number of Depositors from the commence ment appears to be 1141, and the sums deposited ( including interest), amount to £ 39,185. 12s. Id. of which £ 10,465. 12s. 4d. has been withdrawn at different periods. Ths amount of sl^ ck st^ dii. g in the names of the trustees on the 31st of March last was £ 27,970. 4s. 5d.; the balance in the treasurer's hands £ 418. 6s. lid.; and the interest due from Government £ » 49. 5s. 40d; making a total of £ 28,833. 17s 2d. now belonging to the depositors, whose disposition for saving will, we doubt not, increase with the accumulation of their little property; and we hope gradually inspire them with, and by their example incite others to, a renewal of those truly British feelings of manly independence, that characterised the lower ranks of our forefathers, and to which the acquirement of property ( however small) generally stimulates, hot which, owing principally to the operation of the Poor Rates and the facility of obtaining Paro- chial Relief, have for many years past been so rapidly on the decline. The Petition of the Owners and Occupicrs of Land in the County ofSalop, agreed to at the late County Meeting, setting forth the state of Agri. cultural Distress, and praying for retrenchment of the public expenditure, was presented to- the House of Commons, by Mr, HILL, on Thursday night e The Rev. Professor Lee, M. A. of Queen's College, wason Wednesday last appointed Chaplain to the town gaol of Cambridge. We understand that the whole of the new scenery, with the changeable wings, painted by that celebrated artist, Mr. John Stanton, for the Oswestry Theatre, are finished in a very masterly style, pre- paratory to the performances which are expected to commence ihe week after Chester Races. Upon an appeal at the late Stafford County Sessions, the Court confirmed a rate on the coal mines of Sir John Heathcote, at Talk o' th' Hill, for the repair of the highways. attributed to certain Members of the House by the newspaper reports must, therefore, be considered as the gratuitous endeavours of certain newspaper writers to traduce by a sidewind species of attack, where they know a more open method would be alike false as dangerous. The Hon. Frederick West, at his recent audit, held at Llangollen, & c. returned 20 per cent. 011 the rents payable by his tenants, being the second half- year of such allowance. Desperate Attack and Highway Robbery, on the Great Holyhead Road, North Wales.— OnWed- riesday last, the 24th April, as Mr. Sturdy, a supervisor of excise residing at Llanrwst, was pro ceeding on the great road leading from Capel Curig to Bangor, on horseback, he was attacked by a single highwayman, between the hours of 3 and 4 o'clock in the day, aboul 9 miles from the former place, who demanded his money, and at the same time presenting a pistol to his breast, threatened immediate death if lie refused ; the latter, at such a time, and in such a place, felt unwilling to comply; when the robber, impatient of delay, instantly fired, but providentially missing his direct aim at Mr. Sturdv's breast, the ball lodged in his arm ; although wounded and naturally agitated, Mr. S. still refused to surrender his property, when the sanguinary villain, determined to effect his purpose at every hazard, levelled his second pistol at Mr. Sturdy's head, but Providence again interposed, and the ball passed through his hat without further injury ; upon which the ruffian then commenced a violent assault, and striking his victim on the forehead, with the butt end of his pistol, brought him senseless to the ground, when it would appear that he changed his purpose, and was satisfied to substitute Mr. Sturdy's horse and saddle- bags, new saddle, & c. for the booty he ex- pected to find on his person, and instantly mounting fhe horse, rode off in the direction of Capel Curig; here, at the turnpike, the horse was recognized with a strange rider, and suspicion was also excited by his refusing to stop, or pay turnpike. Shortly after, one of the coaches passing, brought intelligence of the robbery, and immediately the hue and cry was raised in pursuit; the robber had been seen to strike off in the direction of Llanrwst, and 4 individuals, including the gate- keeper, named William Thomas, set off in chase ; they kept in one direction for the distance of 10 miles, and the latter had performed this space, though on foot, in less than 1 hour aud 10 minutes, far outstripping his companions; here they were at fault, and therefore took different direc- tions; when Thomas fortunately procured a horse, and shortly after got sufficient scent of the robber, to be sure of the road he had taken ( being towards Denbigh); the latter appears to have jaded his horse from the severity with which lie had driven him from the beginning, for Thomas, shortly after, namely, between 9 and 10 o'clock at night, overtook, and entered into conversation with him, but sing'le and unarmed, he durst not venture, however willing, to attack him; they conversed familiarly tog- ether, and the robber observing a better stick in Thomas's hand, than he had himself, requested an exchange that he might drive his horse faster, which the other instantly complied with, unwilling, as he said after- wards, to excite any suspicion by refusing, and knowing besides, that he had the pistols with which the robbery was committed, and which afterwards appeared to have been re- charged. He also allowed him, with singular sagacity and presence of mind, to get before him into Denbigh, knowing that he could not proceed further, from the harassed state of his horse, and that he could readily trace him hy enquiry, whereas he might endeavour to elude his grasp, if he kept company with him to his resting place. Here, atthe Swan Inn, at 11 o'clock at night, he was found by his intrepid and vigilant pursuer, snugly seated at a good fire, and with the assistance of one or two men, secured hiin without any resistance, though armed ns before stated. He was next morning committed to Ruthin Gaol, for the present, by Alderman Hughes, after the usual exa- mination, disclosing these facts. This fellow, named Lewis Owens, appears to be a native of the county of Denbigh, about 36 years of age, was formerly an ostler at the Bull Inn, Denbigh, but naturally vicious. He was convicted about 8 or 9 years ago, of a burglary, and confined ftfr' 2 or 3 years in Ruthin Gaol; since then, it is suspected that he has led a profligate life, in different parts of the kingdom, including London, where he has a brother residing, a tailor by trade. He admitted having come last from Liverpool, three or four days ago, but obstinately refused to satisfy any enquiry respecting his mode of life for the last six or eight months. He was decently dressed, black coat, pan- taloons, and half- boots. The pistols were quite new, and screw. barrelled. The ball is extracted, and Mr. Sturdy doing well. MENAI BRIDGE.— The large pier on the Car- narvonshire side is carried up to the level of the road way; that on the Anglesea side to 15 feet above the spring of the arches. One arch on the Carnarvonshire side is turned; of another three- fourths is turned; and of the third about one- fourth. The arches on the Anglesea side must wait the three centres, now employed, being relieved; which would have been before this, had not stormy weather prevented vessels from venturing upon the exposed part of the coast, where the quarries are situated, and where a great quantity of slone now lies pre- pared for shipping. The Second Report of the Select Committee on the Holyhead roads has been printed. It treats exclusively of steam packets. It states there is no doubt of the practicability of performing the Post- office service at Holyhead by steam- vessels as safely as by sailing vessels, and in less than half the average time, and therefore recommends a third steam packet, upon the same general plan of con- struction as that of the two present steam- packets, the Meteor and Royal Sovereign, which were built in the river Thames by order of the Postmasters- General At Brecon Great Sessions, Catherine Llewellyn, for sheep- stealing, received sentence of death, but was reprieved ; and Jas. Briffet, for stealing seven pounds from J. Powell, of Brecon, was ordered to be transported for seven years. At Radnorshire Great Sessions, held at Presteign, 011 Friday se'nnight, before Mr. Chief Justice Wing- field, the only prisoner for trial was Samuel Harley, for the wilful murder of Arthur Bedward, a respect- able old tailor, on the turnpike road between Knigh- ton and Knucklys, on the 4th of October last. It appeared, that the deceased and the prisoner had been in company together in a public- house, where ihe former had casually exhibited a £ 1 note and some silver; and on his leaving the house to return home, the prisoner followed him some distance, and then murdered the poor old man with a hedge- stake, and rifled his. pockets! The Jury found him guilty w ithout a moment's hesitation, and be was sentenced to be executed 011 Monday week, and was executed accordingly.

PUGILISM.— On the 15th instant, a most san. guinary conflict took place at Hodnet, in this county, between two well- known pugilists of the names of Wilks and Evans. They fought 26 most tremendous rounds; but victory was declared in favour of Evans, who appeared to. be an athletic man, and much superior in muscular strength, the other being; of a more diminutive stature.. Francis Blithe Harries, Esq. of Benthall Hall, in this county, at his audit held at Allesley, near Coventry, on the llth ult. made an allowance of from 15 to 20 per cent, on the rents due from his tenants at Michaelmas last.

Sir Thomas Constable, Bart, has lowered his rents in Staffordshire, according to circumstances, and to the satisfaction of each tenant. The Rev. Dr. Berkeley, Rector of Shelsley, Worcestershire, at his late tithe audit, returned 20 per cent, to those who paid their tithes. The following Members voted in the Minority in favour of Sir F.

Your obliged and very obedient Servant, RICE WYNNE. Shrewsbury, April 29,1822. Had I ot any time previously to your visit to me oil Sunday, 21st instant, conversed with you on the subject of Mrs. Drury's Aecouchment ? Answer: Never, directly or indirectly. Did you accompany Mr. Watton to Mr. Drury's Warehouse, as his ( Mr. Watton's) friend ? Answer: Most undoubtedly under that impression. Did Mr. Drury, in yonr presence, deny to Mr, Watton that he had ever uttered what is attributed to him iu my " Statement of Facts," viz. his having- told tne, in the presence of Mr. Maddock, that Mr. Watton, contrary to his ( Mr. Drury's) wishes, omitted to call at my bouse as he passed by? Answer: He did not deny it, for the question was not put to him. Did Mr. Drury, in your presence, say any thing relating to the importunities of Miss Firth and the Nurse to have Mr. Griffith called in? Answer: Mr. Drury stated to Mr. Watton, that Miss Firth and some one else came into his room wishing that Mr. Griffith might be called in ; he endeavoured tp persuade ihem to have the same confidence in Mr, Wynne which he had himself; and it was not until Miss Firth said, " Do you mean mv sister to be lost?' 1 that he ( Mr. Drury) sent fur Mr. Watton to beg he would call in Mr. Griffith, On your leaving my house on Sunday, 21st, please to state the messages you look from me to Mr. Watton, and his answers?— Answer: When 1 left your house op Sunday, 21st, after reading my me- morandum, the words I received from you and de- livered to Mr. Walton were as follows:—" I wish you will inform Mr. Watton I have not the least enmity towards him; if lie will call upon me, I shall be glad to meet him as a Gentleman, and ex. plain the business to him." This I immediately delivered to Mr. Walton, and brought the following- answer :— If Mr. Wynne is satisfied that I did not act as stated in his Pamphlet, he w ill not object to take the same notice of it which he would haie ex- pected from me iu a similar case."— To which Mr. Wynne answered, " It will be much best for the parties to meet und settle the business amicably. 1'—? To Mr. Watton's answer to this message I replied, If you wish to send this message to Mr. Wynne, write it yourself, for I will not take it." THOMAS DONALDSON. PRIBE^ HILL.

Forty nine Years ofthis Lease are unexpired at the very low Ground Rent of £ 9 per Annum.

The Grand Jury at the East Kent Quarter Sessions, holden on Friday and Saturday last, presented an Address to Sir Edward Knatchbull, Bart, one of the Members for the County, praying him " to endeavour to obtain for the Agriculturist such a protection for fixed duties as will enable them to compete with the foreigner in tiie home market," and expressing their extreme concern to see " the attempt made to lower the average price below 80s. per quarter," & c.— They conclude with stating' their conviction, " that nothing but a strong stand made by the Landed Interest in the House of Commons, can save the country from being sacri- ficed to commerce." A long established and most respectable bank in the county of Norfolk has stopped payment. The consternation excited throughout the county on Wednesday was proportioned to the unlimited con- fidence reposed in this establishment. The con- nexions and credit of the firm extended universally through Norfolk and the neighbouring counties. At Thetford, Brandon,* Stow- market, and Bury St. Edmund's, the scene was truly distressing. DURHAM.— Joint- stock Banking Companies. —- A general meeting of the nobility, gentry, and other inhabitants of tbe county of Durham has been held, by whom resolutions have been adopted expres- sive of a strong conviction of " the superior security afforded by joint- stock banking companies ( on the principles of tbe Scotch banks), and their more ex- tensive influence in promoting the agricultural aud commercial prosperity ofa country."— A committee was appointed for the purpose of promoting such establishments, and of corresponding with persons who entertain tbe same sentiments. It is stated that similar opinions are generally entertained amongst the mercantile community, and that Ministers have shewn a disposition to encourage them. Papers just laid before the House of Commons contain the following information :— u The quantity of foreign undressed Flax imported last year was 490,847cvvt. 3qrs. lOlbs. This is the greatest importation in the years for which the return is given, viz. since 1815. The undressed Hemp imported last year was 242,876cwt. 2qrs. lib. In 1818 the quantity was 660,403cvvt lqr. 20lbs. which is the highest quantity given. The quantity of 7yallow imported last year was 619.598cwt. lqr. 8lbs. In 1820, the quantity was 804, G17cwt. lqr. 19Ibs. which is tbe highest quantity given. There are only a few pounds of dressed flax imported. Nearly the whole Of these commodities are imported from Russia. Of foreign Butter last year, 115,849 cwt. lqr. 5lbs. were imported. The largest quantity stated was in 1815, when 125,159cvvt. Oqr. 27lbs. was imported. Of foreign Cheese, S4,068cwt. lqr. 20| lbs. were imported last year. The largest quantity imported was in IS 14, viz. 145,562cwt. Iqr. 5lbs.

The late Dutch Papers contain a Report made to the States- General on the Agricultural Distresses of the Netherlands, which are represented to be quite as great as those in this country. The Dutch attribute their sufferings, in a great degree, to the want of that foreign market of which the English corn law has partly contributed to deprive them. MELANCHOLY SHIPWRECKS.

To J\ Jr. Rice Wynne, Apothecary. SIR, EVER since I saw your Publication in Vindication of your own Conduct, in relating what took place at Mrs. Drury's Labour, my Mind lias been very much disturbed that you should give an Insinuation that I bave not been used to attend as a Nurse upon such Occasions, and as though I vvas ignorant of what ought to be done in such Circum- stances. 1 think it necessary, therefore, in Justice to myself, to contradict you : for my living depends as much, and perhaps more, upon the good Opinion of the Public as your own does. Now, Sir, I shall tell you truly, that I have attended as a Nurse with the " late Surgeons DODD, SANOFORD, BEETENSON, and HARDING, the present Mr. HUMPHREYS, Mr. THOMAS SUTTON, Mr. CLEMENT, Mr. GRIFFITHS; and, moreover, have delivered a number of Females myself, without any other Assistance, and can still do so in common Cases, if forcpd to it; but I refuse the Practice w here other Help ean be obtained ; and not only so, I have had Twenty Children myself, and, thank God, am none the worse for it; although some of my own Labours were so difficult as to make tbe Use of Instruments necessary. Take Care, then, bow you attack an Old Woman, lest she aU > should beat and expose you, iu spite of all your big Words, For if your own Practice as a Midwife bad not been so little, I must bave been known to you, as well as to other Professional Gentlemen. But it seems that every Body, and every Thing, must give Way to your own Self- importance, and Self- sufficiency ; altho' whatever you may think of yourself, I will take Care that I am never employed again as a Nurse, where you only are employed as a Midwife. lam, Sir, your humble Servant, ELIZABETH BUETHEN.

LOSS OF THE ALBION PACKET. CFrom the Liverpool Mercury of Friday J. Extract of a letter addressed to Messrs. Crop- per, Benson, and Co. of Liverpool, dated Kinsale, April 22, 1822:— " On my arrival in this place early this morning, I was informed of the melancholy fate of the ship Albion, Captain Williams, one of the line of packet ships from New York to your port ; she was cast away before day- light this morning, to the westward of the Old Head, near a place called Garretstown ; and I grieve to say, poor Capt. Williams is no more. There were 22 passengers on board, in the cabin ( 15 men and 7 women), al! of whom have met a watery grave, with the exception of one young man from Boston, I understand, and he is so exhausted he could not give the names of the others, or any parti- culars; seven of the crew are saved, one of the mates and six men. I am informed that there vvas a considerable sum of specie on board ; part of tbe deck only floated ashore. Last night vvas very tem- pestuous, and it seems the ship lost ber masts about ten O'clock, carrying a press of sail, off the land, wind S. S. E. which was the cause ofthe misfortune ; and it was about three o'clock this morning that she struck on a ledge of rocks, and went to pieces. I understand a few bales of cotton are come ashore." Another letter, dated Garretstown, the same morning, conveys the following additional parti- culars : — The Albion struck on the rocks under a very high cliff, it blowing a dreadful gale and the sea running mountains high. Attempts were mnde by a few per- sons who were early drawn to the spot to rescue some of the survivors, four of whom, one a female, were discovered on the deck of the vessel. The part of the ship to which they clung shortly after rolled info the waves, and tbe whole were washed off; one of the crew stuck to the mast which projected towards the cliff, and after many ineffectual and hazardous attempts on the part of those on the cliff, a rope was thrown to him, and he was brought safe on shore; another man was also saved in the same manner.— This letter adds tbat the Albion left New York on the lst, with a cargo of cotton and about 28 passengers; her crew consisted of 24; and of the whole there were only nine saved ( including two passengers), making the sufferers amount t, o 43; the bodies of five men and two women were picked up in the Course of tbe morning. She very speedily went completely to pieces. A letter from Cork, dated the 23d April, says that Major Prevot, of the 6th regiment of foot, was among the unfortunate sufferers on board the Albion. It was on the rocks of Garretstown bay, two or three miles to the west of Kipsale, that she struck. This account states the number of pas- sengers at 43. The Albion, says the Editor of the Mercury, was one of the finest American ships that ever entered Liverpool, and her melancholy fate excites a more than usual degree of interest from its being the first misfortune, attended with circumstances of a painful nature, that has befallen the line of packets since their establishment between that port and New York. Captain Williams was an excellent seaman and a skilful navigator, and no one in his situation was ever more generally respected and esteemed. A letter received on Sunday morning from Liver- pool, by a mercantile house in Birmingham, states that advice had just reached that port of the Albion's letter bag having floated on shore, and that many of the letters were found in a very mutilated condition. The names of the passengers were not then known. His Majesty's packet Sandwich, Capt. Stubbles, carrying over the Bristol mail of the 20th April, to Waierford, wa^ also, with al! the crew, ten in number, lost off the Wexford coast in the dreadful gale of the night of the 21st. Fortunately there were no pas- sengers on board. She sailed from MiJford on Sun- day morning— The Esther barque, of and for Liver- pool, William Catstell master, from Charleston, laden with cotton, rum, & e. ran on shore on the same night between Slade and Hook Town, and became a comp'efe wreck. She had been five weeks out, and of her crew, thirteen in number, the captain, two mates, and five hands perished; her eargo is nearly a total loss. The Nimble smack, from Plymouth to Cork, in ballast, went ashore in Ringabella bay, in that harbour, on the same morning, and all on boaid perished. The shore about tbe mouth of this harbour, says the Waierford Mirror, inside and outside the river, presents a dreary spectacle, in consequence of being strewed with wrecks. COLLIERS, & c. STAFFORDSHIRE COLLIERS.— A numeroiur and highly respectable meeting of the principal coal and iron- masters took place at Bilston on Tuesday last, for fhe purpose of investigating the causes of the present disturbances in tbe mining districts in that neighbourhood ; when it appeared from the testirtiouy of all ihegenflemen present, that the situation of fhe colliers was by no means so distressing as had been represented, and that the practice of paying them in provisions instead of money vvas not at all a general one. The ratio of payment to a collier appears to be from 2s. 6d to 3s. per day, besides three pints of pit drink and coals for his family. The meeting came to au Unanimous resolution to protect and support those men who were willing to return to their, ernplov- incnf, and to prosecute_ as vagrants ail those who continued begging for subsistence^ ( Depreciating, as we do in the strongest terms, the unlawful acts committed by these headstrong men, we yet think it ty. it justice to say a few. words upon the grievance which ihey represent to have been the occasion of them. With respect to the re- duction of wage£, said fo be the original cause of complaint, they now either are, or afsp:: ar fo be,' convinced of its necessity, and willing to work at that reduction; but that of which they most bitterly complain, and are most decidedly opposed" to, is receiving in what they call Tommy or Truck, at an exorbitant rate of profit to their employers, that which ought to be p, aid them in money.— Wo herha rnpfon Chron icle. . DISTURBANCES IN MONMOUTHSHIRE— O- I Friday last, a Meeting of tbe Magistrates and Deputy Lieutenants was held at Usk, at which his Grace the Duke of Beaufort,. Lord Lieutenant, presided, for the purpose of taking into consideration tbe disturbed state of the county; when resolutions were entered into, and other measures adopted, for the purpose of reclaiming the deluded workmen to a proper sense of their duty to their employers and families. A Special Sessions of the County Magistrates was also. held at Pontypool, on Friday se'nnight, which, tho' convened at a very short notice.* vvas numerously attended. A reward of £ 50 was ordered to be offered for the conviction of persons going about in disguise, in women's clothes and wilh blacked faces, by night, exercising anv species of threat or intimidation ; a. proclamation was also ordered for preventing or suppressing mendicity ; and other energetic ond necessary measures for preserving and restoring the peace of the county were adopted. I be Magistrates present beard with great pleasure from several gen- tlemen present, connected witb the Iron Trade, that a general resolution has been entered into, of paying- the wages of the workmen employed in the Iron Trade in money, weekly, without any restriction whatever as to the place or manner of laying out the same. The preceding night ( Thursday), a violent attack had been made on a house at Tredegar, iu which were some men who still continued at work : as they repelled the violence by fire arms, one or more of the..; assailants were wounded, which, it is expeeJed, wi f lead to their being discovered and taken. Early on Saturday morning a large party of colliers assembled at Gelly- haw colliery, stopping by force. and chaining together nineteen waggons, laden with coals for the- Tredegar Works. Intelligence of this outrage and complaint having been made to J. H. Moggridoe1 Esq. tbe neighbouring Magistrate, be instantly re- paired to the spot, accompanied by Capt. Lewis's troop of Yeomanry Cavalry, who were at the time breakfasting at Woodfield. Every endeavour to dissuade the misguided workmen from their illegal purpose, and every warning of danger and friendly exhortation proving in vain, the Riot Act was read, nnd the consequences of remaining together after the expiration of an hour or of any previous breach of fhe peace, fully explained. In less than 20 minutes^ however, a genera! attack was made on the waggons in the rear, and the coals were thrown out ; upon, which, hoping still fo avoid the painful alternative of ordering the Cavalry to charge, the Magistrate seized one of the ringleaders ; but, after some resist- ance, be was rescued, and the Cavalry were then ordered to clear the ground, which was effected in a few minutes, with equal celerity and humanity, not a single individual being even wounded. The wag- gons were then forwarded under guard of the Cavalry, and, together with 55 others, making in the whole 74 waggons, Were convoyed, notwith- standing repeated attempts to break up fhe roads in advance, to within three miles of the Tredegar Works, where Ibev were met by a detachment of tbe Scots Greys,, under Capt. Wy ndham, accompanied by the Vicar of Abergavenny, Much praise is due to Capt. Lewis's troop of Yeomanry Cavalry, fifty of whom, partly from the confines of Herefordshire, bad mustered in the western part of tbe county by ten- o'clock iu the morning of Saturday, though the orders for their assembling were not signed till the preceding afternoon, and bad then to be dispersed throughout nearly half the county. Every possible exertion bad been previously made by the Magistrates to preserve the peace of the county without having recourse to the military, even that! most Constitutional species of it, fhe Yeomanry Cavalry, which is composed of the gentlemen anil yeomanry of the county ; and therefore, as soon as* the proprietors of the NaUt v- glos and Beaufort Works line) given way to the claims of their work- men, tlie Monmouthshire Yeomanry Cavalry, which had been called out, and stationed at Abergavenny,- were dismissed. The hollov? sort of truce obtained by these concessions \ vas,: however, as was foreseen, only of short duration. Then endeavours were made to swear in special constables; but this being found impracticable iu numbers sufficient to be of adequate use, the High Sheriff of the county was written to for the purpose of having tbe whole civil force of the county embodied ; and, at the Special Sessions of the Magistrates, on Friday, the 19th ult. a Resolu- tion unanimously passed, for applying to the Sheriff raise the posse comitatus, the terror of a night to visitation from the " black cattle'"'' and " black ladies," as the bands amounting sometimes to 200 in each, who scour the country by nighf, are called, deterring not only well- disposed persons in tho neighbourhood from aiding the Magistracy of the county, but large bodies of workmen from continuing at work. On Sunday morning last, a most inflammatory handbill, containing the most horrid menaces, wag found stuck up in a level belonging to Messrs. Leigh, George, and Smith, near Pontypool ; and we Under- stand the collieries of those gentlemen are so com- pletely deserted, that not only must the furnaces at Biaendore be speedily blown out, but it is expected a supply for their tin- works will not be to be obtained. WRECKERS.— Thomas Moore, of Moreton, labourer, was convicted^ at the Chester assizes, of stealing ropes from the wreck of the Mary and Betsey, stranded on the Wallasey shore, in October, 1820, and sentenced to suffer death.— It is to be hoped that all those persons who have hitherto looked upon wrecking as a lawful trade, will learn from his sentence, that by the law of the land as well as tbe laws of humanity, it is considered a most atrocious crime. By the 20th of Geo. It. plundering a vessel in distress ( whether wreck or no wreck) is felony without benefit of clergy, Deserting Farms.— The desertion of farms by their occupiers, after a thorough clearance of the properly, is beginning to be very alarming in part of Mon- mouthshire. It is'an absolute fact that two Magis- trates, residing in that county, travelled 18 miles orr Saturday se'nnight, to give possession to the land- lord of a deserted farm, and iu order to complete the business, they must travel as many more ! The same Magistrates bad the mortification to learn, as thev went along, that several other tenants in that part of the couuty had already done the same thing! Sir William Congreve's New Stamps on the Country Bank Notes, which were put forth as inimitable, have scarcely been sent into circulation, but it is found tbey may be imitated with the greatest ease; and a forgery has already been committed on the Blackburn Baiik by various parties who have severally been apprehended and committed to Lancaster Castle, to take their trial at the next Assizes. NOTORIOUS FEMAT, E OFFENDER :— - Ann Lay. shaui alias Sarah Wardle, the enterpirising female whose extradinary escape froni Stafford Gaol, in 1818, was lately mentioned, and who recently stood charged at the Police Office, Lam bet b- Sf reef, London, as an extensive dealer iu forged notes, has been finally committed to Chelmsford Gaol, for trial at tbe nexi Assizes. Out of the many charges pre- ferred, five cases were substantiated against her* The prisoner, who was respectably dressed in} mourn- ing, appeared overwhelmed with grief, and swooned away several times; she was accommodated with a chair at the bar, and supported by an officer, who occasionally held a smelling- bottle to her. On being called upon, if she had any filing to say, she in a faultering manner answered tbat <% hef husband was a cabinet maker; she had not lived with him the last five years, and her late residence was at Newport iu the Isle of Wight." A statement of the parochial expenditure of the town of Liverpool for the year 1821 has been published, by which it appears that a saving of £ 9,381. 18s. 7d, has been effected, compared with that of the year 1820, and a further diminutiou i » confidently looked for in Uie current year. " TNE MOPES OF MY BOYHOOD." There is life in the greensward, There's bloom on ihe hough! But the hopes of my boyhood, Oh, where are they now ? Tiie spring dew may charm forth The hud on its stem ; But what spr'mg can awaken Fresh beauty in ihem ? Alas ! that such visions Should e'er fade away ! Alas ! that such sweet smiles Should ever betray! The breeze sighs on many, But tarries with none— And such is thy love, oh ! Thou treacherous one!

FORD'S recent Report on the state of tbe Road from Shrewsbury to London, as related particularly to the district immediately within our circulation, were inserted in our last Journal.— After giving his Report on the state of the several Trusts, Mr. Telford con- cludes as follows: — " Upon the whole, the state of the Road from Shrewsbury to London, shews that the surveyors have made considerable exertions to improve il ; and that they have attended to the rules which were drawn up and published for their instruction, by the Parliamentary Commissioners. The use of the road level is gradually bringing the transverse section of the road to the proper shape; and the defining of the road with proper side drains to 30 feet, gives the whole line a neat uniformity, and makes it appear that all the work is conducted on a well adjusted principle. The supplying all the stone- breakers with proper hammers and iron rings cf 2^ inches diameter, has nearly accomplished the great object of getting the stones broken toa proper size ; and the discontinuing' of the use of gravel for the repairs of the 18 middle feet of the road, has been attended with all the good effects which were anticipated. The general attention which the Trustees have paid tothe letter of tlie Parliamentary Commissioners of Noveipber, 1821, concerning the cutting- down of hedges, has been of the greatest service; but tiie Trustees should not allow so many trees to remain, as noticed in this Report; many of these trees are full grown, and a greater number so crooked or bushy as not to be of any value, therefore no loss can be sustained by the owners in cutting them The Trustees should be aware, that trees add at least 25 per cent, to the expense of keeping a road in repair; and therefore, that out of every hundred pounds they spend in repairing a road sheltered with trees, £ 25 goes to repair the injury which is occasioned by the owners of trees not removing them, and should be set down to their account."

MATCEI TO TROT SIXTEEN MILES.— Mr. Jliggs, the dealer, undertook his match on Tuesday, at Totbridge, to trot his grey mare 16 miles within an hour, for 200 guineas. This match caused much betting, and the performance was over a two mile piece of ground, the mare carrying 10 stone, and it was done in 50 minutes three seconds. The mare broke into a gallop, and had to turn in the sccond and last mile, but the match was easy won. White, the pedestrian, who lately undertook to walk 42 miles, between Nottingham and Mansfield, in 12 hours, and to rest three 011 his journey, performed his task wilh the greatest ease in 11 hours aud a quarter, having three quarters of an hour to spare. He was so little fatigued, that he went the last mile and a half in 15 minutes. The day being both rainy and stormy, was much against him ; but he kept a regular pace of five miles an hour, and on his arrival at the Cock public house in Mansfield ( being the end of his journey), he offered for a wager to return to Nottingham ( 14 miles) the same evening in three hours and a half. — White had no previous training, and v/ as not particular as to diet on the road. Mr. Somerville, who has been trying the match of 1000 miles in 1000 hours, at Dance, in Oxfordshire, resigned on Saturday week, after labouring at it more then five weeks. He was too lame, and too much exhausted, to proceed. It was for 200 guineas. A Good Daifs Sport.— The Roxby hounds met on Wednesday ( a bye day) at Roseberry, and found a dog fox, which they killed in prime style, after running about three miles; at the moment they were breaking up this fox, they were hallooed to another, which, after a run of ten miles, without check, was likewise killed; but the pleasure of this chase was somewhat destroyed to the sports- men, when they found it to be a bitch fox, with no fewer than eight young ones in her— a number seldom, if ever, heard of. They found again, aud, after a severe run of six miles, killed, in gallant style, their third fox— hoises, hounds, and sports- men, alike ready to retire to rest. It was the best ecenting day these hounds have had this season.— JZxeler Gazette. A few years since, there was a litter of Nine young foxes found in a copse at Rock Hill, near Taunton, all of which were taken to Hestercombe, and reared by a fox- hound bitch that had recently whelped. RINGING.— A selected eight of St. Peter's youths, a short time ago, at IIuddcrsfield, in Yorkshire, rung at St. Peter's parish church a fine peal of 6,720 musical changes in that most intricate method, Cambridge Surprize; being both composed and conducted by Mr. Benjamin Thai kray, woollen- cloth worker at Dewsbury; the first true peal performed in that intricate composition in England; weight of the tenor 18 cwt. net bell metal : in the key of F. Hand bell Ringing.— A few days ago a select four of St. Peter's company at the city of Norwich performed upon a musical peal of eight hand- bells, a quarter peal of Mr. Fabian Stedman's Triples, comprising 1,260 harmonious changes, ( totally free from any lapping systems,) which they boldly struck and nobly brought round, being both com- posed and conducted by Mr. Samuel Thurston, a Stone- mason.— This is tiie greatest performance in the kingdom on hand- bells. STRANGE BIRDS.— In some parts of the country in the angle between the Moselle and the Rhine, great numbers of strange birds have lately arrived, none of which were ever seen there before. They are about the size of a starling, of a brown colour, with blood red spots 011 their wings and a yellow pi ripe across the tip of the tail. They have a pointed tuft of feathers on the head, and are so tame, that they let people approach them within a few paces, remain in flocks together, and change their place, almost daily. Many of them have fccen taken aiive. HOUSE OF COMMONS— MONDAY. STATE OF IRELAND. Sir JOHN NEWPORT brought forward his motion for an Address to the Throne on the state of Ireland. The Hon. Baronet said, he thought it necessary to inquire how it happened, that a country possessing an immense population, and boasting an unexampled fertility of soil, had beeu reduced to sueli a situation, that it could not be governed without recourse to perpetual and rigorous coercion. They were called upon to legislate for seven millions of people; they were then solicited to rescue the inhabitants of Ire- land from a state of insubordination, and indeed almost despondency. The bad practice of governing that unhappy country by the disunion of her people, had been too long resorted to ; but it had been resorted fo iu vain. Divide et impera had been the motto aud the principle of the successive govern- ments of Ireland. An attempt had been made to embitter the feelings of the population one against the other; and, would the House believe it, a Judge in Ireland deprecated the plan of uniting the people? It was quite manifest, that as a great portion of the landholders suffered from a depreciation in the value of land, they were compelled, in many instances, to seek iu other countries that contracted mode of existence which their pride would not permit them to adopt in their own country; and thus the great bulk of the people became a prey to rapacious agents, and were completely deprived of that super- intending protection which the residence of the rich would naturally afford. There was a circumstance, too, which seemed not a little strange, as it regarded the revenue of lhat country. In proportion as taxa- tion increased, the revenue had diminished, lo 1806, he had pointed out to Ministers the evil effects which would arise from an increased taxation. He had then said, and it was proved by the event, that without adding to the revenue it would serve merely to spread thick jealousies over the land, to embitter the feelings of ihe people, and to excite universal discontent. The gentry of the country had been broken down, and with the diminution of their pro- perty died away that respect which they had- so long enjoyed. They saw that their former glory had faded, and they transferred themselves from their own homes to the lodging- houses of this country, and passed their days in useless occupations. In Ireland, the iron hand of poverty had paralysed the exertions of the people ; but they had drawn upon tiie capitalist a3 long as the capitalist was able to pay, and now they had succeeded in reaping a plentiful harvest of discontent. With respect to the tithe- system, the lower orders of the Irish people were oppressed in this way almost beyond human endurance. The vegetable upon which those people subsisted was tithed beyond any description of pro- duce, and this excessive pressure, added to the repeated failure of a measure, the object of which was to identify every class of the inhabitants of that country by making them participators in the same rights— tended much lo the disturbance of Ireland. He understood it would be said that the present was not the precise moment for investigating this subject; but he feared that to those who stood upon such objections the time would never come. The right lion, gentleman concluded by moving that an humble Address he presented to his Maje> ty representing that the melancholy detail contained in his Majesty's speech from the Throne, and in the documents laid before the House respecting the disturbances of Ireland, obliged them to consider the. state of that country, as affecting in an extreme degree the well- being- of this country. That under circumstances of daring insubordination Parliament deemed it fo he their first duty to suppress insurrection and to restore the original vigour to the laws and tranquillity to the country. And the Address concluded by recom- mending the adoption of a system of such remedial, measures as would effect a valuable improvement in the morals of the people, and thus strengthen the interests of the State. Mr. GOULBURN deprecated so early a discussion ofa subject involving the measures of a Government so recently established as three months since ; and whose attention was, of necessity, in the first instance called to measures for the immediate repression of existing commotions. He did uot deny the necessity of a deep inquiry and a solemn consideration; bnt the evils alluded to were tiie growth of centuries, and though the present government could not be pre- pared with measures to remedy such deep- rooted grievances, yet he assured the House that they had the whole of the important topics alluded lo under most anxious and attentive consideration, and that when they should have made up their minds, they would lay before the House llie measures they should recommend. The Hou. Bart, had said that " taxation was too great in Ireland; but even admitting that statement, how could he show that Ireland suffered more from taxation than did England ? The rate of taxation might be regarded as too great in Ireland ; but w hen the rate of taxation was so much greater in England, why should the hon. hart, use that rate of taxation asa ground for stating that the inhabit- ants of Ireland came to England, when they could not meet the increased difficulties attendant on the taxes paid here? The reasoning of the lion. hart. 011 that head was therefore inconclusive, and ihe House could not agree to the hon. bart.' s inferences. As to the other topic on which tbe hon. hart, had dwelt with so much emphasis, he would say in relation to it, what he had said on another important subject, that it embraced a consideration of subjects so intri- cate and extensive, as to demand the most serious deliberation. The hon. hart, had drawn a distinction between the rights of the People, and those of the Church. He would agree with the hon. hart. that, the House ought to weigh impartially ihe rights of both, and that a settlement agreeable to the feelings and rights of each party would he a desirable regu- lation ; but he thought that the rights ofthe Clergy to their property were as immutable as those of any description of the subjects, and that if the consider- ation of tithes was connected with the introduction of principles, by which tbe rights of the Clergy would be endangered— the admission of such princi- ples into tlie grounds of legislative enactments would be attended with results of the most woeful descrip- tion. It might be urged that the system of tithes which was carried on through the intervention of three persons, was one which was highly objection- able ; but he begged to ask the gentlemen opposite, whether a similar system was not encouraged by the lauded proprietors of that, country. Were they not in the practice of letting their estates to men, called Middlemen, who afterwards let smaller portions of those lands to the peasantry? If the system was wrong in one branch, why was it not to be considered so in the other? The House ought therefore to he careful in allowing those principles to enter into the grounds of its legislative measures, for they embraced consequences tending to endanger not only the pro- perty of the clergy but all other descriptions of property. Any attack upon the system of tithes was to be looked upon wilh fear. As to its being- deno- minated a grievance, or the source of grievances, the House ought to know that every other species of money payments were regarded as oppressive and as grievous also. The Hou. Geut. concluded by moving the previous question. Mr. N. CALVERT and Mr. S. RICE supported the motion for an Address. Mr, C. GRANT said, the late disturbances in Limerick were excited, in the first instance, by the conduct of the Agent to the Conrtenay estate.— They extended, and were marked by great ferocity. He was satisfied that, even in the county of Lime- rick, gentlemen conld be found anxiously to oppose the outrages which disgraced it. But he might ppeal to gentlemen present, that Proprietors in that country who, at fhe commencement of those disturb- ances, resisted the proceedings of the Agent to whom he had already alluded, had actually encouraged the peasantry in their resistance; but they had done so to alarm the Agent, and thereby to prevent the recurrence of the practices on liis part which hail given so much offence. Those disturbances, marked as they were by so many acts of outrage and atro- city, yet proceeded from local causes. The wretched abject stale of the tenantry was no small cause, and here lie could not help observing that . distress in ils most frightful form had made its appearance in tlie southern counties. Symptoms of famine had already commenced in Clare, in Limerick, and in Kerry. The- first exciting cause of discontent lie had already said was the abject state of tbe peasantry. In no part of Europe, save Poland, were the peasantry so badly oft' as ihey were in Ireland ; in point of food, clothing, and lodging, they were in the lowest estate; all the habits of the people were low and uncomfortable, and the least local misfortune exposed them to distress, and rendered them desperate. It had heen truly said, that when potatoes and milk were in abundance, tbe people, naturally social in their temper, were glad to seize on any moment of hilarity, and with them the absence of actual distress was a cause of enjoyment; in such times they were tranquil, hut the slightest reverse rendered* them again miserable. In every point of view their situ- ation was the reverse of the English peasants ; and here he could not help submitting to Irish gentlemen, 1 that it would be well worth their while to adopt on their estates the improvements of English landlords' — to encourage the industry of the people, and to inspire the tenantry with a taste for the useful com- forts of life. The absence of great landed proprietors nothing could wholly supply; but where absence was indispensable, it was the duty and the interest of proprietors to leave behind them agents of respect- ability and character. A great cause of complaint undoubtedly was the pressure of taxes; but when tho people cried out against taxes, it was not of general taxes they complained; local taxes, county assessments, formed the great causes of discontent. He would give one instance to shew the increase of those taxes. In the county of Cork, previous to the war, thetownland cess amounted to between five and six shillings; it increased during the war to £ 20; since the war it fell down to from £ 12 to £ 15. With respect to tithes, the effect of them, he believed, was over- rated ; but when he heard it said that a moder- ate commutation of tithes affected the Established Church, he protested against such a consequence. Surely it was meet that a clergyman commencing his sacred duties should not be obliged to commence them bv quanelling with the flock. He was far from intending to say any thing of the clergy that was not to their praise; they were a respectable order, and supplied, in 110 small degree, the place of the absentee proprietors. The present system of tithes was vexatious chiefly in consequence of the manner in which they were collected. Under this system the farmers and peasants were kept in a state of continual fever and trouble of mind. In tbe month of May two viewers come 011 the land ; iu three or four months after they view the crop ; in October the tithes ore demanded, and the farmer passes his note, payable fifteen days before the January Sessions, if the note he not paid, it is generally renewed, payable fifteen days before the April Sessions; if not then paid, process is served, and the law takes its course. In April ihe viewers again come on the laud, and thus throughout the year the mind ofthe farmer, or wretched peasant, is harassed with apprehensions. But the causes of discontent did not stop there: a deep distrust of British leg'slation had sunk deep in the hearts of the people. They sought not the overthrow of the Government— they entertained 110 revolutionary no- tions ; but they had a great distrust of the law, because they believed it was not intended for their benefit or protection.— The legislation which had been applied to Ireland had been, up toa very late period, hostile to the people ; not to the lowest class merely, hut to the whole mass of the population. I: i Ireland every thing was done by effect and force. In England there was a moral and religious princi- ple in the peasantry, directed to the maintenance of property and tranquillity. In Ireland there was no such feeling. I11 England there was a substantia! yeomanry; in Ireland there was no such thing— in England there was a resident gentry ; in Ireland there was a lamentable void— in England there was a vigorous and united magistracy ; in Ireland there was a magistracy distracted and supine— distracted, he meant, by party and political differences. As to thc want of niorarinstruction in Ireland, it was not attributable to the want of schools, for there were no less than 8,000 schools, and giving each 50 scholars, there were no less than 400,000 children in the course of education in Ireland. The schoolmasters, however, were of the worst species, and employed themselves in ail the agitations of the country; and the hooks which they put into the hands of the people were calculated to create a love of adventure and secret' combination— which were too congenial with their temper, with their dispositions to court danger, and their romantic idea of faith arid personal attachment. In looking to the causes of the want of instruction he could not acquit the Clergy, neither Protestant nor Catholic. I he Protestaot Clergy, in spite of the obligations imposed upon them by their large endowments, and their interest in the peace of ihe country, had till lately thought themselves bound only to instruct the Protestants and to contemn the Catholics. Some of the Protestant Clergy were now, however, among the most anxious to diffuse the blessings of education. As for the Catholic Clergy, their neglect was not to be condemned while the persecuting code existed. They had then but few and stolen visits with their flocks, and those visits were chiefly confined to the offices of their religion ; but since that code was relaxed, their inattention was culpable. With respect to the Magistracy he spoke with much deference, as there were many of them who possessed much influence, and exerted it most beneficially. But there were among them a great many who, to say the least, ought not to be there. The want of activity was the mildest, account that could be given of their conduct. The great misfor- tune was, that the Government was never reduced tothe necessity of sympathizing with the people: it had been supported by foreign force or foreign fraud. — The Right Hon. Gent, concluded by opposing- the motion, because he was satisfied the present unhappy state of Ireland was under the most anxious examin- ation of the Government. Mr. ELLIS, of Dublin, attributed the recent out- rages chiefly to the habits and prejudices of the lower orders of the Roman Catholics, and the want of sincerity and energy on the part of their Priests. At present thc first thing to be done was to put down insurrection. That could only he done hy arming the Executive government with a power almost absolute. There were at present about 18,000 sol- diers in Ireland ; but if they wonld tranquillize that country, they must double or even treble that number. They must also put down the system of 40s. freeholders, together with that of Illicit Diste- ntion, and endeavour to give the people, not a literary, but a moral and religious education ; an education founded 011 the basis of Scripture, withont which all knowledge was mischievous. Mr. PIUNKETT defended the conduct of the Catho- lic Priesthood. When he looked to the increasing population, the increasing commerce, the improved knowledge and education of Ireland; he confessed that he could not entertain those gloomy feelings with regard to the state of that countiy which some hon. gents, had indulged in the course of the present debate. He was persuaded, that if a judicious sys- tem of police were established in Ireland, and if the country gentlemen were willing to do their duty, that country, instead of being a source of weakness and annoyance, would become as sound and efficient as any part of the empire. There were three or four measures which came within the limits of legislative interference ; tithes, the system of police, the magis tracy, and the system of education. He would only add a few observations on one of these topics, namely, the system of tithes. He confessed that this was a subject which involved much difficulty in whatever point of view it was considered. In the first place the Government had no more right to intermeddle wiih the property of clergymen than with any other classes in the state. He was firmly of opinion that the Clergy were not only not more than adequately provided for, but that they were in many instances not able to obtain any thing like what they were entitled to receive. He did not mean to cost any imputations upon the country gentlemen of Ireland, buthe must in justice observe, that throughout the south of Ireland, where the disturbances were great- est, the landlord considered himself at liberty to raise from bis unfortunate tenant the highest ren which h- e could possibly obtain. In many instances, the rack- rent so raised amounted to 7, 8, 9, or £ 10 an acre, leaving the tenant nothing wherewith to pay taxes or tithes. The clergyman, therefore, had to deal wiih an insolvent fund, and when he went to a beggar to endeavour to wrest from him more than he could pay, it was natural lhat an outcry should be raised. Il was but justice, however, to the clergy, to say, that their general conduct in regard to the levying of tithes was most forbearing. There was no class of country gentlemen more useful to the State than clergymen; in one respect they were preferable to every other class, as they were sure to be resident on their estates; ihey were an educated body, au informed class of men ; and he could never subscribe to the policy of depriving the clergy of any portion of what tbey justly considered their property. The subject was certainly surrounded ; with difficulty, but he thought some means might he contrived by which the clergy might he enabled to treat with the proprietors instead of the occupiers of land. In this manner an agreement, not amounting to a commutation of tithes, might be entered into, by which the clergyman might receive a certain sum for a certain number of years; and this arrangement might he farther perfected by making the tithe an actual charge upon the land into whatever hands it might fall. The occupier of land in the North of Ireland was generally a Roman Catholic, who was naturally disinclined to contribute fo the support of a religion which he did not profess, hut if the trans- fer which he had just alluded to were adopted, the Protestant clergyman would no longer have to deal with a Catholic occupier, but with the proprietor, who was generally a Protestant. He did not despair of some such moosure being matured so as to be capable of being laid before Parliament. The sub- ject was now under the consideration of wiser heads than his. With regard to the system of police and the magistracy of Ireland, he could assure his right hon. friend that those subjects were now occupying the most earnest and serious attention of his Majesty's government. Mr. GRATTAN supported the observations of his right, hon. and learned friend, whose knowledge of the state of Ireland made him competent to point out all the bearings of the question under consideration. The hon. member recommended unanimity in Ire- laud, and expressed a hope that he should see the day when Protestants and Catholics would he firmly united under the same laws and government. Mr. PEEL said the discussion which had already taken place rendered it unnecessary for him to trouble the house at any length ; but, connected as he had heen with the Government of Ireland, for a longer time than any of his predecessors in office for the last century, lie could not permit the discussion to be closed without adding a few observations. In these observations he should make no allusion what- ever to the Catholic question ;— but when his right hon. friend should bring forward his motion in the next Session, he should feel it, his painful duty to oppose to it his firm and uncompromising resistance. It appeared to him, lhat the points of difference between the right hon. hart. ( Sir J. Newport) and those who opposed his motion, were not very numer- ous or important. He could assure the hon. baronet ( Sir J. Newport) that the Irish Government had been most solicitous to promote the interests ofthe people. He had had the honour to belong to the Irish Govern- ment for six years, and it would have been a painful reflection to him if he had not given the grievances of which he complained his serious consideration. He would mention in particular the case of the Sheriffs, and that of the Grand Juries. The mode of appointing the Sheriffs, which was previously very defective, and liable . to many abuses, had been assi- milated tothatof England, by the Judges recommend- ing- three persons in each county. The Grand Juries had been put in a better state, and the Government had effected the improvements which went to remove loeal taxation, even against considerable opposition. He ( Mr. Peel) was most anxious thai the police of Ireland should he put on the best footing. He did not mean the extraordinary, bnt the ordinary police. He felt that police to be very defective, atid he and his friends had done every thing in their power for its amelioration. The duty of appointing the con- I stables would devolve upon the Grand Juries, or, i failing them, upon tbe Government. The appoint- I inent of constables in Ireland was different from that j in this country ; for in Ireland they were paid, and i here they were not. He could wish to see an ordinary police in Ireland, adequate to the carrying into effect of the common law of England ; and lie ' hoped that after a few years that law would suffice j for preventing insurrection, and there would be no j need for those temporary measures to which they were at present forced to resort With regard to the education of the peasantry, that was not affected by opinions on the Catholic question He wished the benefits of knowledge to be extended to all, and if any effective measure could he proposed, it would be adopted. In respect to the tithes, he thought the conduct of the Clergy very much misunderstood and misrepresented. There might be a few cases of extortion ; but he was convinced that the very for- bearance of the Clergy wonld be a bar in the. way of commutation. The commutation would he an injury to the Church, if less than the full tenth were allowed ; and, if that were allowed, there would he no advantage to the farmer. The project was fraught with difficulty and danger. He agreed with many of the views which had been taken— the faulty nature of the leases and tenures— the poverty of the farmers— and the uncertainty of their crop. He hoped, however, that the House would rest satisfied with the exertions of Government, and not concur in the Address. Sir H. PARNELL supported the Address. Sir JOHN NEWPORT, after what had been stated, did not press his motion, and it was rejected without a division. HOUSE OF COMMONS— WEDNESDAY. Several petitions complaining of Agricultural Distress, and others praying relief from the Leather Tax, were presented. HUNT'S IMPRISONMENT. Some petitions for a remission of Henry Hunt's sentence were also presented. Sir Francis Bordett then brought forward his mo- tion for an Address to his Majesty, praying that he would be graciously pleased to remit the remainder of Mr. Hunt's imprisonment. The Hon. Bart, pre- faced the motion by an history of Hunt's imprison- ment, contending that he had been treated with un- heard of and unnecessary severity. Mr. G. DAWSON said, that until Hunt's concubine, Mrs. Vince, was denied access to him, no complaints were heard, buton the contrary, Hunt had expressed his satisfaction at the treatment he received ; as soon, however, as means were taken to prevent his adulter- ous intercourse, loud and incessant complaints were made. His treatment was much superior to that of tbe unfortunate debtors in the same Gaol, though he was the last man that hail any right to expect in- dulgence. His career had been long and dangerous. He was a man possessed of considerable talent, which he had employed to the worst purposes. He had gone about every where inculcating the doctrines of rapine and violence. Ho was the founder of anew school for sedition and blasphemy. Since they had incarcerated Mr. Hunt, and his brother incendiaries, Wooler and Carlile, the country had returned to a more sober state ; and he hoped the result of that night's debate in favour of Mr. Hunt, would not be allowed to go forth to the encouragement of rebels and blasphemers. The motion was supported hy Mr. TIOBHOUSE, Sir MACKINTOSH, and Mr. BUXTON; and further opposed by Mr. PEEL, Mr. DICKENSON, and Mr. WYNN.— On a division, it was rejected by 223 to 84.

LORD BYRON.— Some mis- statements have got inlo circulation on thc subject of the late in- crease of fortune to which Lord and Lady Byron have succeeded by the death of Lady Noel. The following particulars are said to be correct:— The late Lord Wentworth left, by will, a life- interest ill his Leicestershire estate ( about £ 6000 per annum) to his sister, Lady Noel, at whose death it \ va9 to descend to Lady Byron, for her life only, and consequently to Lord Byron, in right of his wife, during her Ladyship's life. At the period of the separation between Lord and Lady Byron, it was agreed lo by his Lordship, that should he, by Lady Byron's surviving Lady Noel, ever come into possession of the rental of the estate, a friend should be named by Lady Byron to meet a friend on the part of his Lordship, and that their decision should fix what portion of the rental should be appropriated to her Ladyship's sole use. Lord Dacre, on the part of Lady Byron, met Sir F. Burdett, on the part of Lord Byron, and they have decided that one moiety of the net annual produce of the estate shall be appropriated to her Ladyship. The Duke of Devonshire has been at Chatsvrorth superintending the improvements in that magni- ficent chateau. Tbe alterations are so multiplied, that but little of the old mansion will be allowed to remain. The grand front, upon which so many thousand pounds have been at various times expended by its. present owner, will be allowed to remain; but the other parts of the edifice have been pulled down.

In address, thc German looks like a blockhead ; tbe Englishman resembles neither a fool nor a wise man ; the Frenchman is gay ; the Italian is prudent, but looks like a fool; the Spaniard is quite tbe re- verse. In courage, the German resembles a bear ; the Englishman a lion; the Frenchman an eagle ; the Italian a fox ; and the Spaniard an elephant. In the sciences, the German is a pedant; ihe Eng- lishman a philosopher; the Frenchman is a smatterer; the Italian a professor ; and the Spaniard a grave thinker. Magnificence.— In Germany the Princes, in Eng- land the ships, in France the court, in Italy the churches, in Spain the armouries, are magnificent. Servants are companions in Germany; obedient in England; masters in France; respectful in Italy; submissive in Spain. The women are housewives in Germany; queens in England ; ladies in France; captives in Italy; and slaves in Spain. KOTZEBUE. building of the kind in the kingdom, has been demolished. A great number of men are now busily employed in the new erections. At the entrances into the park will be erected lodges of stone afler the Doric order. It is supposed that the improvements will not be completed in less than seven years. The Bishop of Exeter, by his admonitory charge to the clergy of his extensive diocese, at his late visitation, has been the means of causing resident curates to be appointed to all the parishes possessed by pluralists, with full stipends according to the Act of Parliament. Thirty- nine Gentlemen have been recently added fo the Commission of the Peace for the county of Norfolk, of whom several qualified at the late County Sessions. This addition to the local Ma- gistracy is the result of the late disturbances in that county, and may furnish a useful hint to the Government of Ireland. Mr. IIICARDO has just published a Pamphlet on " Protection to Agriculture." He divides his subject into nine sections, commencing with observations " On the Remunerating Price," and concluding with " The connection between Distress and Taxation." In recapitulating his opinions, at the close of the Pamphlet, he attributes the present depression of Agricultural produce to the general prevalence of abundance, arising from good crops, and large importations from Ireland. " The fall has been increased by the operation of the present Corn Laws, which have made the price of corn in average years, greatly to exceed the price in other countries: and therefore, in proportion as it is raised, liable to greater fall." He proposes that to obviate, as far as it is practicable, this evil, all undue protection to agriculture should be gradually withdrawn. A monopoly of the Home Market should be given till corn reaches 70s., when all fixed price and system of averages should be got rid of, and a duty of 20s. the quarter on wheat imposed. We must, however, proceed farther. The duty of 20s. should every year be reduced Is. till it readied 10s. This duty is rather too high as a countervailing duty for the peculiar taxes on the corn. grower; " but," he observe?, " I would rather err on the side of a liberal allowance than a scanty one." As he had fixed the duty rather too high, he proposes that the drawback on exportation should only be 7s. A Financial Document of some interest, relating to the Sinking Fund, has just been laid upon Ihe table of the House of Commons. The first division of this document presents an account of the total capital of Stock redeemed on the 5th of January, 1822, by virtue of the various Acts that have been passed for regulating the operation of the Sinking Fund, since the year 1786, from which it appears that the gross amount of capital Stock thus redeemed is £ 403,970,095. To this is added the capital contracted for by tbe Sinking Fund Loan of 1821, which loan is in the course of payment, viz. £ 16,296,875, making a total of £ 420,266,970. The above capital includes £ 5,209,633, redeemed on account of outstanding- Exchequer Bills, & is exclusive of £ 180,296.9s. 4d. Irish Five per Cents, redeemed in England. The Inverness Courier says, " The manufacture of linen goods in the east coasts of Scotland has been for some time past, and is, we are informed, at present unusually brisk. A vast quantity of goods from these parts have lately been exported from this city to the Brazils. The quantity, in most instances, is considerably more tban double what was previously sent to the Brazil market." A farthing, in good preservation, of the date of 1504, is now in the possession of Mr. Edmunds, smith and farrier, of Southampton, who extracted it from the foot of a horse, on examining the cause of its lameness. On Tuesday last a respectable druggist in Sheffield was fined in the mitigated penalty of £ 31. 10s. for having sold to a victualler a mixture of liquorice, ginger, and pepper— articles which, how- ever far from being deleterious in themselves, the Legislature has thought fit to forbid in the manu- facture of malt liquor, under the very heavy penalty of £ 500.— Sheffield Paper. Adjournment of the Assizes from Lancaster to Manchester— A plan for obtaining at. ad- journment of the Assizes from Lancaster tj Man- chester, and then to Liverpool, for the Hundred of West Derby, was submitted in a Memorial from the Magistrates at the last Assizes, to the Judges, who received it favourably. Its importance is considered to be great, . nut only as lo the saving tothe county in travelling and other expenses of witnesses on prosecutions, but also to avoid the irreparable loss to persons taken, as at present, so far from their business. SINGULAR CASE OF INSOLVENCY.— In the Insolvent Debtors' Court, on Tuesday, V\ illiam Ritchie, a private in the Guards, was heard on his petition. He was not opposed; but the chief Commissioner, in looking over his schedule, ob- very curious circumstance— namely, to that of finding one hundred pounds. It appeared from the answers to the interrogatories put by the Learned Commissioner, that the insolvent some time ago, in passing through Oxford- street, found this sum in five notes for £ 10 each, and one £ 50 note. The tens he gave to a person of the name of James Wright, to get then, cashed, who absconded. The fifty he presented himself at the Bank of England also to be cashed. He was detained and given into custody, and taken befoie thc Lord Mayor, and subsequently brought befoie the Magistrate four times, and was finally discharged, w hen he was arrested by Mr. George Thomson, the owner of the notes, and his only creditor. The Chief Commissioner, in adjudicating him to the benefit of the Act, cautioned him not to find another hundred pounds, and ordered him to be discharged forthwith. EXECUTION.— At an early hour on Monday morning the avenues leading to Ilorsemonger- I'ai. e gaol were crowded to excess, to witness the execu- tion of Dalton, for a r;. pe committed on I lie sister of his wife, wlio was of very tender age. A great number of persons attended on Sunday to hear the condemned sermon, which \ Vasdelivered hy the Rev. !\ lr. Mann. The discourse evidently affected every | one present more than the unhappy culprit, who frequently rose, and interrupted llie Clergyman. When pointing out the consequences of particular crimes, the prisoner ... tillered, " 1 am not gnilty of that." It is proper, however, to observe, that he evinced apparent devotion and contrition, during the reading of the Church service, and frequently shed tears. At the close of the Sermon lie rose, oni begged permission to say a feiv words, when Mr. appeared anxious that be however, said, " Gentlemen, I sawed in two, was their only cooking utensil.

The Malabar convict ship bad just arrived, and was then riding at anchor iu the Cove. Numerous parties of settlers continue to arrive in the colony. The good land near Hobart's Town, and 20 miles round it, was all disposed of. Even in the interior, good land was eagerly sought after, and rapidly increas- ing in value. Some farms, in advantageous situa- tions, had sold for 30s. the acre— a very high price in tbat country, considering the expense of clearing and preparing it for cultivation. A passage from one of the letters will further describe the situation of the colony:—" The flocks of this Island, from the numerous importations of Merino rams and ewes, are very much improved, and the wool fetches a good price. For a man, who loves his independence, this country appears to me one of ; served, he attributed hfs insolvency to the most desirable in the world, besides that it is a most healthy place. We pay no taxes, have our land for nothing, get 10s. per bushel for our wheat, 1 and 6d. per pound for our meat from the Govern- ment all the year round. Convict servants are provided by the Government for all settlers who apply, and are furnished with provisions for six months. The families of the settlers are also furnished with provisions for six months, which is a great thing for young beginners. Of the general character of the settlers hitherto I cannot say much; did they but correspond with the soil and climate, it would be a most delectable spot to live in ; but time, I have no doubt, will, in this respect, ameliorate our condition." Loss of the Blenden Hall East Indiaman.— The Blenden Hail, extra Company's ship, Captain Greig, from London to Bombay, was totally lost on Inaccessible Island, one of the group of Tristan D'Aeunha, in the South Atlantic Ocean, on the 23d July last. The Commander, Officers, and passengers got safe on shore, but eight of the crew perished. They remained on the island exposed to the cold and rain until 8th November ( four months), on which day the carpenter and three or four of the crew embarked in a small punt made out of the wreck, with surgical instruments which were throne on shore, and reached Tristan D'Acunha, where they procured two whale boats, and brought those that remained on Inacces- sible Island away. On 9th January, a brig from the 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 carpenter and boatswain came home in thePheenix. Captain G. was waiting for one of the Company's ships, hourly expected, when the Phoenix sailed, on 2d February.

RECIPE FOR GRAVEL.— By means nf the fol- lowing important specific, the late S. Rudge, Esq. of Watlington, Oxfordshire, who lived lo thc advanced age of 30 years, was released from a quantity of gravel, according to his own calculation, equal to half a pint measure. He was a great sufferer from calculous complaints, and was ac- custoiaed, during forty years of his life, to recur constantly to a decoction, for the formation of which the following receipt, by himself, conveys the most minute and particular directions:—" Boil thirty- six raw coffee berries for one hour, in a quart of soft spring or river water; then bruise the berries, and boil them again another hour in the same water; add thereto a quarter of a tea- spoonful of the dulcified spirit of nitre, and take daily half a | » int cup of it, at any hour that is con- venient. Its efficacy will be experienced after taking it two months." SURGERY.— On the 30th of January, a farmer j from the Hartz mountains had a most difficult and extraordinary operation for the stone publicly and 1 successfully performed upon him, in Ihe Chemical i Institution of Berlin, by the Privy Counsellor Graefe. The stone, very solid and hard, was carcfully examined after thc operation, and found to weigh above twenty- one ounces and half, its length was four inches three lines, Paris measure; its greatest circumference eleven inches nine lines, and its least nine inches ten lines. The patient had suffered from his earliest childhood, for above thirty years, incessant torture, and now enjoys the first moments of his life that have been exempt from pain. In the year 1745, Mary Powlis, of East Dere- ham, in Norfolk, spun a pound of wool into a thread of 8- 1,400 yards in length, wanting only SO yards of 48 English miles: a circumstance which was considered so great a curiosity al the time, as to obtain for itself a situation upon the records of the Royal Society. Since that period, Miss Ives, of Norwich, spun a pound of wool ( combed) inlo a thread of 168,000 yards ; which wonderful suc- cess in the art of spinning wool, induced her to try her exquisite talent upon cotton, when, out of a pound of that material, she produced a thread that measured thc astonishing length of 203,000 yards, equal to 115j English miles and 100 yards. The last mentioned thread, woven into cloth, would ( allowing 200 inches of it in warp and weft to a square inch of the manufactured article), give thc fair artisan 28' J yards, nearly, of yard. wide cloth, out of her pound of cotton ! Twenty- five pounds and a quarter of cotton, spun iu that man- ner, would reach round the Equator. wonld be possessed of a little property. 1 beg your prayers, I need then, for other offences, though not for this. I am innocent, Grniletnen, anil shall say- so to the last." From the time of his conviction lie treated the benevolent interference nf tl. e clergyman w ith a degree of disdain. He replied only by horrid oaths, abuse of nil those who had been connected w ith him, and those who had endeavoured to restrain his propensities, and in this course of conduct he con tinued even until his Inst hour. After the usual pre- parations hod been innde, at a little before nine o'clock, Ihe culprit was conducted to the top of the prison. Here the clergyman renewed his endenvottrs to impress the miserable wretch with a sense of his nwl'nl situation, but could gain no satisfactory mani- festations from him. The prayers having concluded, the culprit was led to the platform, where he slep- ped to the front, and in a firm nnd audible tone, nd- I dressed the multitude to declare his innocence. He was, at the conclusion of his address, led to the drop, and a few moments of preparation had elapsed dur- ing which time the culprit appeared to he in contem- plation, and at ihe conclusion he desired to speak to Mr. Waller, the Governor of the prison, and some olhrr persons, as he had something to say to them. They accordingly approached him, antl to them he made a short confession of his guilt. In n minute after he was launched into eternity. The whole life of the wretched man was one scene of the most in- veterate depravity. He had kept a wife and a mis- tress. lie obtained his living some times by going about to public- houses with oysters, & c. aud at olherj by assuming thc character of a blind man, and caus- ing himself to be led about for charity. James Gallagher and John I. airless, for a burglary ot Mr. Lyon's, at Bold ; George Farrow, for a burglary at Hopwood ; and John Duckworth, for forgery, underwent the awful sentence of the law, at Lancaster, ou Saturday, in the presence of a large concourse of spectators.
