Embellished with A VIEW OF ABERDEEN FROM THE S. W. Drawn by Mr. GEORGE SMITH, Architect, Engraved, in the first style, by Mr. J. MOFFAT. Edinburgh : And 17 elegant Engravings, of the Bridges, Public Build- ings, and Sacred Edifices, in and about the City, from Designs furnished by the same Artist; and beautifully En* graced in the Line Manner, by Mr. JOSEPH SWAN of Glas- gow. NOTWITHSTANDING the publication of two historical accounts of the City of Aberdeen, within the last cloven years, yet both are destitute of those requisites which are necessary to render them of general utility. The " History of Aberdeen," written by Mr. Thorn, and published in 1811, was too profuse in mat- ters of general history, with little information of a local kind ; and the " Annals of Aberdeen," published in 1818, and writ- ten by William Kennedy, Esq. while a work of considerable merit, is, from its size and price, precluded from extensive circulation. It is also destitute of that systematic arrangement, as well as local information on many subjects, which are indis- pensable, to guide the citizen as well as the stranger to a thorough acquaintance wilh the City. But both these works were entirely destitute of a still greater desideratum; namely, Views of the Public Buildings, & c. & c. in and about the City. The Publisher, however, of this Historical Account and Delineation of Aberdeen, flatters himself, that he has sup- plied all these deficiencies, in a manner creditable to himself, and worthy of the City. In the possession of this work, the citizen " will become acquainted with every thing of importance, connected with the History and Topography of the City ; while the stranger may, with the utmost facility, gain the same ad- vantages ; and those who have been long absent in other parts of the world, may renew their acquaintance, and aid the re- membrance of places endeared to them by the recollections of youth, from the correct and beautiful engravings with which the work is embellished. These engravings consist of the fol- lowing subjects, viz. 1st. A View of Aberdeen from the South West. 12. Gordon's Hospital. IS. Lunatic Asylum* 14. Public Rooms. 15. East and West Churches. 16. Cathedral of Old Aber- deen. 17. St. Andrew's Chapel. 18. Aberdeen Bank, with part of Marischal Street and of Castle Street. H E Insured, whose Policies run to Lammas ( 2d of A\/ trust) are respectfully informed, that renewal Re- ceipts are now in the hands of the different Agents; and that, in order to preserve the Policies in forte, it is necessary to pay he Premium, within fifteen days. The Agents for this Office effect Insurances on all kinds of property, on terms as low as those of any respectable Office in the Kingdom, and one admntage of insuring with the North British is, that while the insured can depend on having their losses made good from the large funded Capital if the office, hey avoid the consequences of Partnership^ to which those are exposed who insure in Offices established on the principle of mutual guarantee, and where a prospect of a return of Pre- mium is held out. Policies are given by the North British Office gratis; and an ENGINE is kept at the sale expence of the Office ( under the charge of Mr. CLERIHEW) which is at all limes at the service of the public.

THE kING'S VISIT His Majesty's approaching visit to this Metropolis has be- come the universal topic of conversation and interest, and to those who are at a distance it would be impossible to convey any idea of the bustle and agitation to which it has given rise, and of the state of expectation which it has excited among all classes. Since the period when James VI. left Scotland to as- sume the sceptre of the United Kingdom, Edinburgh has not been visited by any Sovereign in the full and undisturbed en. ioyment of regal splendour and power. Charles li. is the only King who lias ever seen it; and whatever he may have been dejttre,' he was not at that time the Sovereign de facto, seeing that he was only contending for the possession of bis regal pri- vileges. It is scarcely worth while, therefore, to take notice of this hurried and unsatisfactory visit, to which the future So- vereign was besides in a manner compelled by the necessity of bis affairs. The expected visit of bis Majesty George IV. is iu all respects different. He is the undoubted heir of the British throne, and the only Sovereign since the revolution, inWhose universally acknowledged title every rival claim is extinct. His visit to the ancient Metropolis of the Scottish Kings is dictated bv no State necessity ; it is the free iinpul se of his Majesty's own gracious disposition, and purely complimentary to his loyal subjects in Scotland, and as such we are preparing to receive it. In this reipect all classes, not only here, but in every part of Scotland, are vying wiih each other in their preparations to do honour to this auspicious event. Already the town is beginning to fill with strangers, there Is a more than ordinary agitation and bustle in the streets, and every thing we see or bear gives note of anxious preparation. The gallery over the front of the Royal Exchange for the accommodation of ladies, to see the Royal Procession, is already in a state Of great forwardness. A stage to accommodate the noblemen and gentlemen Connected tvith the county and their families is also begun to be erected at the north end of the County Ilall. Most of the scaffolding lor the use of the different public bodies will be erected in course of this week. Meetings of the country gentlemen have already taken plitce in various parts, for the purpose of addressing his Majesty on his visit to Scotland, deputations will be sent to Edinburgh for this purpose. The same course has been adopt, ed by the burghs and towns, and dutiful and loyal addresses will come from all parts of the country. This of itself will create a considerable influx of strangers; but it will be nothing in comparison of Ihe crow ds which w ill pour in from the coun- try, for the purpose of witnessing the splendid ceremonies and processions which are in preparation in honour of the iRoyal visit. Already some impression has been made oil our provi- sion markets; lodgings for hire aie beginning to be in. great request, and individual bouses are alarmed wit| i threatened visits of country cousins from all quarters. The shops have begun to feel the beneficial elfecis of the increasing bustle in a greater demand for their goods. Court dresses are in great re- . quest, and there is no doubt but the levee and drawing- room will be most numerous and splendid. All classes in short seem to be looking to the approaching event viih symptoms of great excitation and interest; and the lloynl visit to Edinburgh will form an era memorable in the history of the city. It is understood that his Excellency the Lord Lieutenant nf Ireland will go to Scotland iu his yacht, on the occasion of his Majesty's visit, accompanied by Sir William Betham, Ulster King at Anns, and other official personages. — Dublin Paper.

A religious establishment is rw part of Christianity-: it is only ihe means of inculcating it— its authority, is therefore, founded in its utility. 1' ATKIF. Is our last number, v.- esiiew.- d that the Church of England was in possession of an annual inrrftav e'xclusfve of surplice end other fees, of L./. tfflO. iSOO; and that the Established Church of England nhdlrelaml together bad a'revenEe of nearly WSH MILLIONS a- vear. " being considerably more than the total ill- cOTiieof all the'Clergy of all theX'hristianHvirt- ldVsides! In tiie present article. we propose giving our readers some account of the nature and exterit of the service-, which the Clergy of the (" hurch- ttl ^ ingiand render to the public for this enormous ifi- coirre According Kt the best anthentionted statements. it appears, ( bat the total number of church livings in England and Wales, exclusive of situations in the possession of the dignified clergy, amount to about 10,500. Of these. 5.0SS are rectorics. 3,687, vicarages, and the rest neither rectorial n'Or vicarial.— ( Cot it on the Revenues oi the'Church of England, 3d edition, p. ) 1 1.) Our readers most not, however, fall into the mistake of supposing, that these 10 500 benefices are in the possession ( if so many different individuals. So far from this being the case, the last Ijiowan Ket urns laid before ^ Parliament shew, rhatiu 1800. 10, and II, the years to which they refer, only .? 397 benefices we> re occupied tiy resident clergymen, many of whom employed cJTaTes; and thitiif the other 5,103 benefices. 3.9L' 6 were enttrc'T- y intrust- ed to fue charge- of curates, and 1,177 left altoirether'unprovided with any spiritual instructor. and con- verted into absolute- sinecures'!—( See Abstract of the Returns in the Edinburgh Encyclopedia. Vol. ht, Part I. p. 3.3). In- deed, if any one will take the trouble < o look into the " Krite- • Sastical Director)'," he will find that a very large proportion of the incumbents are pluralists-"- rectors in one diocese, vicars in another, curates Th a third, and so forth. We have not been able to ascertain the exact ntenber of churches in England and Wales. A- CCorcting to the Diocesan returns already referred to, aud which, as they were drawn up by thevtt'rgy, ought to have been ac curate, the 10.500 benefices are provided feith no more than CUM tkihtfandjive hundred and thirty- three places of worship *! Wv understand, however, that these returns arc, in this reject, grossly erroneous, ar. t that they have contri- buted, in - no slight degree, to mislead both Parliament and the public, licit supposing that thrtt Ave i'OCO. plares of wor- ship, which is probably a great deaf too much, it is plain, that. ^ very large proportion of rh- 6 ' clergy of itae church of England can be considered only as ^ pernqmerarle*;. Mr. COVE esti- mates the total number of persons employed in the service of. the < Jhurch at about 10,000, and ottiers have estimated them as ' Iriw'h as \ 7 500; but supposing the lower estimate to be the more accurate, and supposing there are 5000 places of worship, that will • e upwards of three clergymen to each, . or a f'tiU third too many. If vee divide the total revenue of the Church of England, by t& e supposed number of Churches, or 5OCX), each church will have L. i 520 a- yeai— a sum that would be amply suflicient for the support offive of our Scottish churches ! It has beew- said, and by very high Authority, ibat // io^ i? » / io do not ii » jrk ought nut U* cot, But it unfortunately happens, thai notwithstanding the unparalleled wealth of die Church of England, the incomes of - the wot king clergy, or curates, are miserably and disgracefully deficient. The dignitaries, piura- jists, anJ siiucurists swallow almost every thing. According to the official returns, jjiven in a parliamentary paper printed by order of the House of Commons, in May 1817. it appears, that in 1814, the latest period to which the returns couUIbe • madtf up. out of the total number of 4,405 curates, there were 1.657 with incomes between L. 40 and L. 60 a- year. And esti- mating their average incomes at L. 115 a- year, which i*. as much as the act - 57th Geo. III. gives the Bishops authority to raise them to, the curates will only receive L. 506', 575 of the • L. 7.6' 00. GI> tt of church revenue ! This, surely, is a state of thrags which calls loudly for the interfei^ n< ce of the Legislature. If the system of non- residence is to be tolerated at all, justice and sound policy alike require that the possessors of benefices should l> e compelled to make a suitable provision for the support of their deputes or curates. It is disgrace fu I to the character of the church and the country, that a poor curate should be performing all the duties attach- ed to a benefice worth perhaps L. 200G or L, .3000 A- year, for a wretched pittance of L. 80 or L. 100. It is utterly impossible that such a person can maintain the outward respect and dig- nity of his station, or that he ran even purchase clothes to enable him to appear in the society of gentlemen. But this is not, all. In some parities the curates derive the principal part of their subsistence from the voluntary subscriptions of their parishi- oners; so that, in point of fact, a portion of the efficient clergy of the richest church in the world are really reduced to the ne- cessity of begging their bread 1 The Legislature have at different time?, attempted to enforce the residence of incumbents on their benefices. I n 1805, a bill was introduced into Parliament for this purpose by Sir WILLIAM SCOTT, now Lord STOW EM., and passed into a law. This act provided, that any spiritual person who should, without some legal excuse, wilfully absent himself from any archdeaconry, deanery, or other dignity, benefice, or donative, or perpetual curacy, of which he wis possessed, for three months together, unless it were to reside at some other dignity, & c. of which he was also possessed, should, if his absence exceeded three and was under six months, forfeit one- third of the annual value of such dignity, & c. if the absence exceeded six months and was under eight, one half; if it exceeded eight and was under twelve, two thirds; and if it exceeded twelve months, three- fourths of such annual value ; to be recovered by action if debt by ANY PERSON suing for the same. For about seven years after its enactment, this statute seems to have been wholly inoperative, and as little attended to as any of its predecessors ; but its subsequent history is extremely curious and interesting. In 1811, Mr. WRIGHT, a gentleman w ho had been secretary to the Bishops of London, Norwich, and Ely, and who must, therefore, have been intimately ac- quainted with the state of the church, commenced nearly 200 different actions against incumbents in the above three dioceses, to recover penalties to the amount of about 80,0001. which he contended they had forfeited under Sir WILLIAM SCOTT'S act. The actions were proceeding in their ordinary course, and no one doubted that Mr. WRIGHT would be successful in the greater part of them, when their further progress was stopped bv the inteiference of Parliament! On the 17th November 1813, I\ Ir. BRAGGK BATHURST brought in a bill to stay all legal proceedings against the clergy on account of the penalties they had incurred under the act 43. Geo. III. This bill was soon after passed into a law. Mr. WRIGHT'S actions were quashed— he was forcibly deprived, without receiving any equivalent, of a large sum to which an act of the Legislature had given him a just claim ; and the sacred cause of non- resi- dence and spiritual sinecuristn triumphed over all its enemies] This is a proceeding whose character cannot be mistaken, aod on which it vtould be altogether superfluous to make a single comment. During the period that Mr. BATHURST'S bill was in progress, ] VIR. WRIGHT published a series of letters in the Morning Chronicle, in which he states many curious and instructive facts relative to the state of the English Establishment, lie mentions, that " in one diocese there are about 216 clergy- men, who each hold two livings; 46 who hold three each; 1 o who holdjftwr; 1 who holds Jive; 1 who holds six, besides dignities and offices; and although many of these thus ac- counted tingle benefices are two, three, four, or five parishes consolidated, yet a great part of these pluralist s do not reside in any of their preferments"—( Letter V.)— In Letter VII. lie says, I will prove that there are pluralists holding more than seven benefices and dignities." Mr. WRIGHT has men- tioned some of the shifts and pretences to which he affirms the clergy resort, in order to elude the provisions in the statutes against non- residence. But for his remarks and observations cm these subjects, we must refer our readers to the files of the Morning Chronicle. The statements we have just made, and which are all found- ed on official documents, must, we think, satisfy every reason- able person that the Church Establishment of England might be advantageously reformed. We are aware, indeed, that any one who may have the courage to introduce a measure to effect this object, will be branded with the epithets of jacobin and leveller, and will be accused of openly attempting to over- throw our venerable constitution in Church and State ! But this jesuitical trick has become rather stale. No honest, or candid man will ever identify the support of the Establishment with the support of the many gross, scandalous, and flagrant abuses with which it is infected. We respect the Establish- ment, and are desirous to see it rendered worthy of general respect and esteem. But its support does not certainly involve the support of tithes pluralism, and non- residence. None but its deadly and inveterate enemies will say so. Those who are friendly to the Establishment distinguish between its prin Ciples and their abuse, and are as anxious to preserve and strengthen the one, as they are to reform and amend the other. Dr. PAI. EY, who cannot be suspected of being unfriendly to the real interests of the Church, distinctly lays it down, that 44 the preservation and communication of religious knowledge ought to be the single end and object of every establishment. " Every other idea, and every other end," says he, 44 that have been mixed with this, as the making of the Church an engine, or even ally, of the State; converting it into the meiW*$ of strengthening or diffusing influence ; or regarding it as a support of regal, in opposition to popular forms of go- vernment ; have served only to debase ihe institution, and to in* * This statement led the author of the pamphlet, " On the Consumption of Wealth by the Clergy/ 1 into an error in esti- mating the number of Churches, which he has corrected iu the second edition of his pamphlet. traduce into it numerous corruptions atid abuses."—( Palcy's Works, vol. ii. p. 29. edit. 1819 ) But surely no one will venture fo contend that p'luralfsm • and non-¥ esidence ere calculated to 44 preserve atici cominuni- , ca'te religious knowledge." Neither will it be maintained, that this object can be promoted by giving enormous incomes to cler^/ men who do little £ r no work, and starving those who have laborious duties to perform! Such obvious and glaring abuses alienate the minds of the people from the esta- blishment': the^ vitiate afcd contaminate the sound principles on which it is founded : they paralyse and defeat the exertions of its ministers; and, if not reformed, will certainly occasion its ultimkte overthrow. There is a passage in Mr. Burke's Works extremely applicable to this subject. 44 tCa'rlv refor- mations," he observes, '' are amicable arrangements with a friend in power; late reformations are terms fin posed upon a • conquered enemy. Early reformations are made in cold " blood ; late refortnations are made in a state of inflammation. In that state Of things the people see Frothing in the govern- ment that is respectable. They see the abuse, hut they will see nothing else. They fall into the temper of a furious po- pulace, provoked at the disorder of a house of ill- fame ; they neVer attempt to correct: they go to work the shortest way: they abate the nuisance, but. they pull down the house.

WM WALTER AND Mr. BARRY O'MEARA. The following ANECDOTES are from Mr. O'MEAEA'I from St. Helena: — " I inquired of the Emperor in what engagement or engagements he considered himself to have been in the greatest danger ? He replied, ' In the commencement of my compaigns. At Toulon, and particularly at Areola. At Areola, my horse was shot under me; rendered furious bv the wound, the animal seized the bit between his teeth, and galloped on towards the enemv. In the agonies of death he plunged into a morass and expired, leaving me nearly up to my neck in the swamp, and iu a situation from which I could not extricate my- self. I thought at one moment that the Austrians would have come up and cut off mv head, which was just above the surface of the morass, and which thev could have done without my having been able to olier the least resistance. However the difficulty of getting at me, and the approach of my soldiers, who rescued me, prevent- d them.' " I asked if he had not been often slightly wounded ? lie replied, ' Several times ; but scarcely more than once had I occasion for surgical assistance, or any fever in consequence of a wound. At Marengo, a cannon- shot took awav a piece of the boot of my left leg, and a little of the skin,' said he, shewing the mark to me, ' but I used no other application to it than a piece of linen dipped in salt and water.' I asked about a wound, of which there was a deep mark in the inside of the left thigh, a little above the knee. He said, that it was irom a bavonct. I asked if he lmd not had horses frequently killed tinder him? to which he answered, eighteen or nineteen in the course of his life." Mury- le- Bon Office.- Yesterday, Mr. Barrv O'Meara, the Gentleman who has lately published a work entitled " A Voice from St. Helena, or Napoleon in Exile," accompanied by Mr. Charles Phillips, the Barris- ter, appeared before John Rawlinson, Esq. the Sitting Magistrate, in consequence of a warrant issued against him on the complaint of Mr. William Walter for an assault. It appeared that the charge was preferred against Mr. O'Meara by Mr. Walter for a personal chastisement inflicted on him on the 22d instant, through mistake, Mr. O'Meara havingsnpposed himto be Mr. John Walter of The Times Journal, in which animadversions on his work, personally offensive to him, had appeared. Before the case was entered into, all the parties being in atten- dance, Mr. Phillips addressed the Magistrate, and said no person could lament the circumstance which had given occasion to the complaint more than Mr. O'Meara. It had occurred by mistake, he havingunfortunately mistaken Mr. William Walter for another gentleman. Everv wish, on the discovery of his error, had been immediately manifested to make an apology ; and, as the Gentleman ortended had expressed an inclination to adjust this un- fortunate affair, a meeting of himself, Mr. W. Walter, and another gentleman, had been held oil the preceding evening, with a view to anarrangement. On thatoccasion, a disposition to adjust the matter was manifested, and for the offence which his client had committed, he was most willing to make a public apology, never having intended any thing calculated to give pain to Mr. W. Walter. That Gentleman, he understood, had partially consented, and another meeting was to be held to draw up such an apology as would be deemed satisfactory to his feelings, in consequence of which, under all the circumstances of the case, he had consented to forego further proceedings on the warrant. Mr. William W alter said something to the Magistrate in a low tone of voice. We understood he said, his oulv object was an apology in the newspapers. The Magistrate ( Mr. Uawlinson) observed, he cer- tainlv did not wish to press proceedings, as Mr. W. Walter had thus handsomely consented to forgo them, - a 7 but he thought proper at the same time to state, that although the judicial investigation would be abandoned, yet, for the preservation of the public peace, he^ should find it his duty not to allow Mr. O'Meara to go at large without his holding him to bail, as he might vet fulfil his intentions with respect to Mr. John Walter, and it became, therefore, necessary to guard against a repetition AORICULtURAL REPORTS FOR JULY. ENGLAND. The oldest inhabitant of the country does not remem- ber either an earlier hay or corn harvest, or more suc- cessful ones, thus far, both with respect to weather, quantity aud quality of produce. Exceptions there ne- cessarily must be, in every season, to a character like this ; but it appears such exceptions will probably not be weighty enough to detract from the statement of a ge- nerally ample and productive crop. Wheat, the most important, will also be the most productive ; and it is supposed the Essex white, the finest of English wheat, will prove this season the heaviest and fairest sample which has been exhibited during many. The Lent corn and pulse, too generally injured bv drought, are yet in many parts fair crops ; and the showers, though late and scanty, have vet had considerable good effects. Potatoes will be a middling crop ; but the quantity of late years grown annually is very extensive, and their use in Eng- gland in a quadrupled ratio to that of former days. On tins consideration, materially, it may be averred that, the present harvest being successfully concluded, there will remain in Britain and Ireland a full two years' con- sumption of the first necessaries. Bad news this for the Continental cultivators, among whom there was, some years since, " a General Inclosure Bill passed," and supported by British capital. Clover- seed is a light crop, and rape, in too many parts. Turnip- seed has been well saved. Turnip- sowing, with those who attempted it too early, has been unsuccessful, and must be repeated. The not very common practice of turnip sowing after wheat, even in seasons like the present, will have a somewhat extensive trial in the present season. Hops have escap- ed as well as could be expected, during a season so varia- ble. On the same account, some smutted wheat must be cxpectcd generally. Fallows, which were not too stiff, have been worked very clean in the dry weather.— In Ireland the harvest has also been very forward, and new Irish oats have already appeared here. Fruit, par- ticularly of the most useful kinds, in great plenty.— Poultry and game most productive craps. The wool- market has been rather overstocked, but no great varia- tion in rice.

The weather, since our last has been extremely fa- vourable to the crop : and the oats, in particular, which in many places were scarcely covering the clod, have shot up to an amazing length, compared with their for- mer stinted appearance. Wheat is an excellent crop.— Oats will be deficient in bulk, compared with some former years, but may still reach near an average. Barley is far short of an average ; and very few good fields are to be seen in the county. The late sown, in particular, has suffered severely bv the worm, and will be the light- est crop we have seen for many years. Pease and beans are rather short of straw, but have plenty of corn, and are remarkably early. The rains in the latter part of June improved the flax greatly ; but it is still a light crop. Potatoes and turnips never had a more promising appearance. The frequent showers have been much against the hay ; and where it was only got into small ricks, it Ijas sustaiued considerable injury. The gene- ral price of hay seems fixed at 8d. per stone, although some lias been sold higher, and some rather lower.— Cleaning the turnips, and getting forward the fallow for wheat, have formed the principal part of farm work through the month ; and a large proportion of the tur- nips have been hoed the second time, and are nearly close in the drills. A good deal of wheat and barley are nearly ready for cutting ; and, if dry weather sets in, harvest will be general in three weeks. Grain remains stationary in price, except barley, which is perhaps a shade higher since our last. Wheat, from 26s. to 27s.; barley, from 17s. to 19s.; oats, 15s. to 16s. ; oatmeal, 14s. to 14s. 6d. per boll. Cattle have declined a little in price during the month, and some of the smaller sorts are totally unsaleable. Prime fat hardly reach 5s. per stone, and are in great abundance. Fat sheep are likewise in great plenty, at no better prices. Goodwoik horsesare in tolerable demand, but prices nothing improved. Notwithstanding great droves have been bought up during the month, in the neighbouring county of Aberdeen, for the Eng- lish markets, vet the large lots that are still in the hands of the farmers and grazieis, and which must be sold off before the end of the season, combined with the appa- rent scarcity of fodder in some places, form but a poor prospect for the grass rents being well paid. others laudably dasKcd in the door, and having taken the par- ties into custody, dragged them to the watch- h6il54 " in the very same state in which they Were found.- The person, why whs'sof taken along wtih thesoldfer of the Guards, was the Hon. aM3 Right Rev. Percy Jueelyh. Lord Bishop of Clobber, ( lately transla'ed to that Bishopric from the Bishopric Of Ferns) a Commissioner of the Board of Education,* and brother of the late Earl of Roden. The Bishop has since fuVfeited hi? haiF,- and i^ uitten for ever the country which lrin presence had polluted. Bill in such a case ! What sum could he named which the wretch would not have sacrificed ? . We know not " whether to rejoice or grieve that he has fled from justice. We known not whetlu- r the tiial of such a criminal, for such a crime, ftiijjht not have cost nipre in the way of corruption, than even his death by law cyuld'h. tve paid in the way of satisfaction to good morals. It is dreadful to remember, that a poor and perhaps innocent nran was sen- tenced to imprisonment and flogging, on the oath of this mitred repiobate, for onVy threatening to charge him with that of which he now stands ( by his tiiglu) confessedly'convicted. Itis more dreadful to think how the church has been scanda- lized and disgraced by soch a dignitary. THE IRISH BISHOP. [ From the Observer of July 21, 1822.] 11 It is our painful and disgusting task this day to notice a charge which lias been made against a Right Rev. Bishop at Marlborough Street police office, at which human nature re- volts. The circumstances are of such public notoriety at the west end of the town, thai it would be in vain, if any delicacy were due to the party accused, to attempt to keep them from general observation. The individual to whom we allude was recently promoted to ati Irish bishopric, and is nearly related to a peer in parliament. He is an elderly man, and we under- stand was much respected in that class of society to which he belonged. On Friday night, it appears, that he was detected in a back room of thy White Lion public- house, in St. Alban's Place, St. James's, in a situation with a private iu the Foot Guards, to which we shall not mi- re minutely allude," but which led to his instant apprehension and removal with his companion to the watch- house. There were no fewer than seven wit- nesses to the fact ; and it would seem that the reverend prelate with difficulty escaped the vengeance of the populace, who, if not prevented by the peace- officers, would have sacrificed him to their indignation on the spot. As it was, he was severely beaten. On being secured in the watch- house, he offered bail to any amount for his liberation ; but this was very properly refused, and he remained locked up in the cell during the night, in a state of mind which may be more easily imagined than described. Yesterday morning he was conveyed in a hackney coach to Marlborough Street, and was soon after- wards followed by the soldier. They were both pursued bv the execrationa and revilings of the crowd which had collected on so extraordinary an occasion. Mr. Dyer, the presiding Magistrate determined on a private examination, at which Mr. Alley, who attended for the Bishop, was present. The witnesses were called in separately, but their testimony was in all respects consistent, and the case established was to a certain extent of the clearest nat ure. Mr. Alley, however, submitted, that as the capital charge had not been borne out, his client was entitled to bail ; a proposition to which, we understand, Mr. Dyer was obliged to accede ; and the wretched offender was permitted, in the course of the day, to go at large upon finding sureties to the amount o- ne thousand pounds. The soldier, not so fortunate, was committed to take his trial."' The scene of the brutal transaction was. as is above stated, n back room of the public house above- mentioned. The par- ties had drawn down the curtains of the room, but had left a part that the curtains did not cover, aod that might be seen through. A little girl happening to go into the back court into which the window looked, wondering to see the curtains drawn, - had the curiosity to look in, where from what she saw, she ran to the landlord, who came out with other persons with bim, who were all witnesses of the fact, to that certain extent, at least, of Which the' observer syeaks; after this the landlord and TRIAL OF JAMES BYItNK. COMMISSION OF OYKK AND TERMINER. GREEH STHFEET, DUBLIN, OCT. 28, 1811. JAMES BYRNE stood indicted on two separate charges : for having himself devised a « d published a liliel, accusing the Bi shop ct terns of an attempt to commit an unnatural crime, and having joined in a conspiracy, the object of which was to vilify the Bishop by calumnies of that nature. Counsel for the prisoner offered ail affidavit, showing reasons why ihe case should be delayed, that certain writings necessaiy for evidence being withheld by the Lord Mayor on the prisoner's examination before hitn. That although prisoner had ottered bail on his commitment being first proposed by the Lord Mayor, his Lordship did not think proper to accept of it, which cir- cumstance had not allowed the prisoner's Attorney to make the necessary preparations ; and that Patrick Leonard, a man wh-. se evidence was material in the case, was at such a distance from Dublin as to make it impossible for him to be produced. It was stated, however, by the Lord Mayor, that there had been 110 papers of the prisoner's detained by him, and it was stated by the Solicitor- treneral, Counsel fat the prosecution, that Leonard, so far from being at an inconvenient distance, was at the moment in the Court; that there could, therefore, be found no proper cause why the trial should be delayed. The Jury was therefore SAorn. The Solicitor General rose, aud proceeded to the following effect :— Gentlemen of the Jury, from my knowledge of the cir- cumstances of the evidence, I Jo not doubt but I shall be able ! ttf connect the whole for your examination in such a manner as will enable me to support the indictment, and Jeave no doubt upon your minds of the commission of one of the most profli- gate and detestable crimes that ever disgraced human nature. We have frequently heard of the unnatural guilt of which men- tion is made in the indictment, but it is one which we have hardly or never had occasion tohaveonc's feelings shocked with; and though from the proximity of a neighbouring Isle to the Continent of Europe, and the great facility with which the corrupted manners of the Continent are introduced, ihe in- stances there are not a few, the contagion never yet has reach- ed us. and there is no instance of its existence in the memory of any professional man. Much less have we been even called upon to witness a crime if possible still more horrid, and still more humiliating to human nature, the shocking criminality of falsely imputing to an innocent person the £ uilt of that dis- gusting and unnatural offence. In Kuglaud this is a practice which has been frequently adopted, and J lament to say, with too frequent success, in order to extort money from those who the wretches supposed would rather pay any sum which might be demanded of them than have their names even come into contact in a public Court with such a crime ; tind it is well known that this practice has grown into such frequent use, that wretches have been known to gain a subsistence by the means of it, and it was found necessary to enact a law in that country inflictingsevere punishment upon those who so far de- graded themselves. It never will be considered by us a mat- ter of misfortune that such a law has not been enacted in this country. We may congratulate ourselves that necessity has never yet called for it, aud that our island has been hitherto free from such humiliating criminality. But the instance is aggravated. The accusation is made upou an exalted and venerable character, who, though raised to one of the highest dignities of the Church, is still less exalted by his rank than he is by the uniform piety of his life, and who ennobles by his virtues that high station which, without them, would only place him as a fitter mark for the shafts of obloquy. He is of* family of high rank, distinguished in every rank for the generous, noble, and beneficent conduct which ought to characterise those w.. oare placed in a situation which makes them have an ex- tensive influence by their example and services upon society, and whose feeViog- s could in no way be more severely branded than by an imputation of the slight.- st wavering from the paths of rectitude in any of its members. The Learned Gentleman having at great length stated the manner iu which the prisoner had made the charge, continu- ed : — 111 do not think I should do justice to the respected and re- vered character of my client, by saying 1 have evidence > » dis- prove what this miscreant has uttered— when I think of a man whose rank shed lustre upou him, Adored by all those who know him for those virtues— on the Reverend Bench which he adorns never sat a man of more exalted honour. I would call ihe attention of the Jury to every act of his life, and they would find them marked by the display of virtue, piety, and benevol- ence. When I consider the Noble family to which he belongs, so numerous and so beloved— when I look upon the head of the family, so great ami estimable in character— w en I con- sider how his life Iras been employed— a life repeatedly aud voluntarily risketl in defence of his country ; when 1 consider the other noble branches of this stock, and reflect upon the un- sullied purity of the ir sires ; I should apologise for saying that there is tiie most undeniable evidence to prove, that every tittle which this most atrocious wretch has aliedged is utterly false. I am sure / may safely claim for the Bishop the thanks of Ihe community, because he was to have been the first victim of the accursed conspiracy. In England some of the first charac- ters have yielded to it; it has become a frequent offence, and but few have had the firmness to oppose it; to this Noble family, theiefore, the public are greatly indebted; and if the Bishop had compounded his own honour, I know not the rnau who could resist. Now from all the facts which have been proved, I anticipate your ready verdict." The Hon. John Jocelyn was examined, and proved all the facts ill which he was concerned, a- i stated by the Solicitor- General ; and he identified all the letters he had received from the prisoner. On his cross- examination by Mr. Ridgway, said the letters were all sealed when they came to his hand, and they were re- ceived in the county of I. outh. The Lord Mayor gave evidence to the examination which took place before his Lordship, aud handed iu a written state- ment of what thp prisoner had said in his presence, which was made by his Lordship's clerk, and read to the prisoner, who acknowledged it was correct. His X. ordship observed, that there was a savage ferocity about him that never was surpas- sed. His Lordship was cross- examined by Mr. Wallace, relative to his authority and jurisdiction for interfering in cases between master and servant. Here the statement made by the prisoner was given to Ire read, but its tendency was such that it was not made public. Mr. Johnson, attorney, proved the payment of wages to the prisoner, & c. The Hon. the Lord Bishop of Ferns examined : Witness remembers to have met the prisoner in Sackville- street. Prisoner passed witness, aud took off his flat ; he asked him if he had left his master— he said he bad ; desired him, as witness had but one servant in town, to come next morning to wash the carriage. On Thursday morning witness went to the stable, and saw prisoner 011 the top of the carriage, cleaning it ; the cariiage, at this time, was half in the lane ; witness did not remain there at the utmost more than three minutes and a half; did not see him again that day ; called next morning, which was Friday, and gave him a letter to take to the Rev. Mr. Harper, Monkstown ; did not see him then more than four or five minutes, when he desired him to bring post horses to leave town the next morning— did not see'him again that dtiy. Witness, in the course ot Friday, found that a letter he had written to Mr. Merge to the country, did not reach him until the day after he expected it would, and there- fore he could not leave towir on Saturday, as he intended.— On Saturday morning, when the post- horses came, he desired them to be sent away, and directed that the prisoner should be sent in, to be paid for what he had done that morning, when the witness gave him some silver. Prisoner did not remain in the room more than five minutes, and never was in the room after. Witness left town after church the next morning. Question by the Solicitor- General. — Did your Lordship take or use any indecent familiarities with his person?— No. Did your Lordship use any obscene or indecent conversation with him?— I did not. J a/ a not in the habit oj' doing s<>. • Are the contents of that paper, which contains his charges against his Lordship, true or false ?— His Lordship rose, and it 1 the most impressive and dignified manner placed his hand upon his breast, and said " Jatse." Here the Counsel for ihe prisoner declined to cross- examine his Lordship, and intimated to the Court that they had given up the case. Mr. Justice Fox then proceeded to pass sentence to the fol- lowing effect : — James Byrne, you have been found guilty of a libel against the Bishop of Ferns,' imputing , to_ his JLurdshijr an attempt to commit what is emphatically called ar. unnatural crime. You have also been found guilty, that, not confining to your own breast the horrid malignity of your mind, yo. u did . conspire, with others unknown, to impute to the said Right Rev. Prelate the horrid charge. X really am oblige to pause for words to express in any adequate terms the feelings of my nvml— feel- ings which are painted in the countenances of every person in the Court, at the extreme audacity of hardened guiit. that 1 could induce to impute q crime of this nature to sucli a in- in. I speak not to you for the purpose of exciting contrition, fur it is impossible but that a heart which could imagine— a miiyl which cottld mark for destruction— a character of such sacti,- fied purify, must be utterly impenetrable to shame. You hava caused an exposure in this Court of a crime which can scarcely be thought of without horror and amazement— you have sought to asperse a Clergyman of the Established Religion, raised b* his Sovereign lo the highest station in our Church— elevated slill higher by those virtues which are not made known by th « casual ebullition of a day or of years. bui\> y the whole peiiott of a life devoted to the. uniform exercise of every duty which becomes a man and a Christian, elevated by religion and edu- cation, anil by those principles which, if he - departed from them, would have made his £ yiit greater than that of ordinary men. What motive could m irk out to your mind an individual so exalted, to whom you were scarcely known, and with whan; no probability of such an intercourse could exist ? You hare acted w ith a degree of guilty frenty, with horrid and unprin- cipled villain', and. soaring alrove all idea of probability of being believed, you- have given vent to so wicked a calumny that ho idea is loo horrible to he formed of you. That you, not the servant of ihe Bishop of Ferns, should be so infatuat- ed as to expect that you should for a moment make it be accre- dited that guilt of such a nature could make its way into suA a mind, is astonishing, and i believe youreffrontery is unpre- cedented. It may be. that you have been advised to do'So, and how could the wicked folly of advice induce you to attack an individual so unassailable, whose character would be suf- ficient to repeal such 1'. charge ? . Your crime is aggravated, if possible, by your attempt to involve the malignity of your ca-, iumny into the private feeling of a Nofcle family, so justly and so universally beloved. Under su<| h feelings they acted con- sistent with the whole tenor of their lives. They have come forward to give evidence at the expense of those feelings which they ntust l. e more than men if they did not possess— they clii not enter into A compromise with your villany— Srut ifoey boldly . stepped forward to meet your charge in a Court of Justice.— The sacred person who was the object of your malignity has unnecessarily produced himself in this Court, to give.' the- sa* fc- tion of his name aud his virtues to an investigation of a charge, which aimed against him rhe most deadly injury. It hat already been mentioned that terror has frequently in^ uerrced the ipinds of men under charges of this kiiud to yield t- o the de- mands of miscreants. A men- ion this 10 contrast the dignity of mind, the purity of sentiment of those w lio liisdained aav com- protnise with guilt. That Noblefamily fM> c. « ssan Irumrurable ascendancy In this country, and never tlid they earn their higli reputation better than when, instead of yielding to the threat^ they dragged them into light, to deter other miscreants. It remains for me to pronounce the sentence of the law which your crime is to be visited w ith ; 1 regret that I cannot males it more adequate to your guilt, but it is necessary that yoa should feel for the purpose of deterring others from following so had an example. Your sentence is, that you, James Byrne, be imprisoned in the gaol of Kilmainham for two years, from this d » tc; . tlut you are to be whipped three times, at such periods as I shalt appoint ; aud at the expiration of the two years you enter in", » security for your future conduct, yourself iu L. 500 and two sureties in L.} 2O0eacb.

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. FROM FRENCH PAPERS. A dispatch from Straslmrg, dated, the 26th mst. at noon, announces that the powder magazine at Coin:, IT blew tip at six o'clock that morning. Several [ lersons were wounded. The military | « » sU havfi lieen doubled, detachments patrol the town, and public order has not been disturbed. . . The Courier of the Lower Rhine ( Strasburg) contains the following:— The second Council of War, held at Stmbwrg, ha< i a second sitting on the 22d, in the affair of Messrs. Walther, Pcnguict, - anti Troli, accused of forming a part of a secret society called Carbonari. The eaitg froij gravity of' these v- oung officers in the presence of their accuser were remarkable. Two remarluhle incidents occurred in the course of the debates. The first, on the subject of the qualification of the accuser, that one of the defenders of the accused had given M. Clmrvais, Lieu- tenant of the - tOth regiment of the line, and who, after being Summoned, had entered the 11 oval Guard as Lieu- tenant, so that he could « ot give evidence. This qua- lification the accuser reserves'! iu terms of the law. The other occasioned a deliberation of the Council, in the course of which women and children were ordered out of the hall; and the witnesses gave evidence to some facts which very seriously affected the morality and vera- city of the accuser. Two short- hand writers attended the debates in this proccs. Is- it that the whole of the debates are to be published ? of that we are ignorant. - Still we must congratulate ourselves ort this occasion, ot » the publicity of the proceedings, which we with n- tisoti consider as the mos: faithful guardians, as the palladium of our public liberties,, and as the guarantee 01 the citi- zens against oppression— against the hatred aud craft of calumny. * - P. S. ( F1VF. P. M.) After six hours ant! a hatfY. etiber. i- tion, the Council sentenced Walt her atid Penguiet to a line of 16 francs each, aud Troii to three months sofitatj imprisonment. So ends the great conspiracy which ) ia3 made so much noise. According to intelligence contained in the Parispnpere, Madrid has been the scene' of new commotions,' tis to the result of which we have the most contradictory ac- counts. One of the Prench papers, the Drapeaa Blanc, states, on the authority of private letters from Madrid, without any date, however, that the Royalists, headed by M- orillo, had defeated the Constitutional party, and hail succeeded in rescuing the King out of their hands— that all the Constitutional emblems were destroyed, and that the Royal cause was every where triumphant. Another paper, the Gazette- de l'raiice, states, Oil the authority of a l;- ttVr, dated the 15th, that Madrid was iu a state of great turbulence and agitation— that several thousands of the populace who had been sup- plied with arms on a late occasion had refused to lay them down, that the inhabitants were in great conster- nation, and that many families were preiwring to leave Madrid. A Madrid Extraordinary Gazette was. published on the 18th ult. containing a dispatch from Field Marshal • O'Donoghue, which announces that the whole Brigade of Royal Carabineers had . surrendered at di- crction to the force under his command, without having fired a- shot. They had been deprived of their arms, hones, and accoutrements, and. had been led to Almtvdova del C'ampo under a proper escort- Meanwhile efficient measures are adopting for placing the Constitutional Army 011 a commanding footing. After consultino Jag Council wf Stats and the Permanent Commission of the Corfps, the King issued the following Decree : " Viewing The eilraordinary circumstances of the country, unci the disasters which affiict . Catalonia,, in consequesce of the plots of the enemies of the State, who have, succeeded in disturbing the repose and tranquillity of its inhabitants ; and Considering thatIhe national militia, , who have given so many proofs of their adherence to tite Constitution, are still employ- ed in a service as painful to themselves as it is prejudicial to their families, by withdrawing them from their tonal occupa- tions ; we have, after taking the advice of our Council, after consulting the permanent deputation of the Cortes, and sub- ject to the approbation of. the Extraordinary Cortes, which we are about to eonvoke, decreed us follows . " 1. That there shall be a fresh levy of 25,000 men in the Peninsula and theislatuk on tin* i- t of August. " 2. ' flint these :.'£, 000 uien shall setve to form, with the { hottest delay possible* the od battalions ol- the 37 regiments of the line and light troops. " 3. They shall complete, likewise, those of the " cavalry of ' the line and light troops. " 4. This measure shall extefid equally to the regiments of foot arid flying artillery, and to the sappers and pioneers. " 5. All the extra officers joined to the different regiments of,( he regular army shall be called to form the third battalions, and those who are not in activity are placed at the disposal of the Minister of War as if they were. " Finally, t* iere is placed at the disposal of the Minister of " War a sum of eight millions of reals, to aid in this levy of 25.000 men, subject to the ulterior arrangements which the Extraordinary Cortes, whom i shall convoke as soon as possi- ble, may make, taking into consideration this decree, and the pressing and urgent circumstances which have induced me to jssue it. " Madrid, July 17." The Papers of the 30th bring no intelligence of the reported tumults itt Madrid : the whole storv therefore appears to be extreme))' doubtful. If such decisive events had taken place on the 20th or 21st, we must certainly before this have received some positive intelligence on the subject. A French Papej- asserts, that the Marquis of Lon- donderv is expected in Paris on the 10th inst. and that he will proceed from that capital, accompanied by Vis- count Montmorency, French Minister for Foreign Af- fairs, to the Congress, which is about to take place in Italy. It is reported in Paris that the King of Prussia will shortly visit that capital; and private letters state that the French Government have consented to the free pas- sage of an Austrian and PriSsiau army through France into Spain. VIENNA, July IS.— The last post from Constanti- nople brings details c. f the death of the Captain Pacha, and the destruction of his fleet. It was in vain that the Greeks offered him battle several times— it was in vain ' that thev sought to attack his position or to burn his fleet; So when they found it impossible to tight him openly, thev resolved to combine stratagem with courage. The naval Commanders of the Greeks held a Council at IJJ- sara, at which they arranged the following plan :— They asked their men to volunteer. More than two hundred presented themselves, and swore upon the Cross either to execute the projected enterprise or to die gloriously. Forty- eight were chosen by lot out of the two hundred, as leaders ; received the blessings of their Priests previ- ous to engaging in their generous design. The whole having been arranged, on the first day of the feast of Bairam, a Greek frigate and five boats ap- proached the Turkish line. They made it appear as if they had come to take a part in the feast. The two hundred heroes who passed tor French and English were well received by the enemv, and they were allowed to enter the harbour of Tschesma, and anchor in the inidst of the Turkish fleet; but scarcely had they arrived, when they began the execution of their project. In a short time five ships of the line were on fire ; the Ad- miral's ship, in flames, made for the harbour, to escape total destruction ; she was run ashore opposite Scio, and the Captain Pacha was cast ashore in a dying state. After this brilliant success, the two hundred brave Greeks retired, without having sustained any injury.— It will be recollected that the whole of the Turkish fleet was burnt in the same manner, during the war between the Empress Catharine and the Porte, by the Greek Captain Lampros. It is to hoped that this great event will secure the liberation of Greece, The Greeks have celebrated it with the greatest religious enthusiasm throughout the whole Archipelago. They have ordered a fast of three days. CONSTANTINOPLE, June 25.— The Austrian Ob- server has an article of this date, which contains ac- counts of the arrival of 8000 men in Candia from Egypt, and of a defeat sustained by 70 Greek vessels, going with troops to Candis, which were attacked by the Egvptiau and Algerir. e fleet : 27 of them were taken, several sunk. On the 20th a firman was published, forbidding the Sale of Christian slaves ; and another, • which was immediately put in forre, to disarm all the Mussulmans below 18 and above 60 years of age. It is hoped that this is intended to lead to a general disarm- ing of the people, and it has made a very agreeable im- pression on the lovers of order. The negotiations with the Bovars of Moldavia and " Wallaehia are concluded ; thev are at liberty to go a21 over the City and converse with whom thev please. The Ministers of the Porte affirm that the nomination of the Hospodars w ill soon be published, and orders were issued a week ago to hasten the departure of the Otto man troops from the Principalities. The following is the Postcript to this letter :— " Just before the post sets out, we have received the news that in the night of the 19th, the Turkish fleet, off Scio, experienced a. severe loss. The follow- ing are the particulars of this catastrophe, which we have been able to collect with some certainty, at the first moment of receiving the news :—. " Three Greek fire ships, disguised as merchantmen, and appeared to be laden with tobacco, anchored before Thirmiana, and had beer, for some davs near the Tur- kish fleet. As they had hoisted the Austrian flag, and had Austrian papers either forged or taken from some Austrian vessels, they were considered as harmless, and disturbed by nobody ; nor were they hindered when they took a position in the evening, very near the Ad- miral's ship. On the following flight, these same ves- sels ( with what material or instruments is not known), set fire to the ship of the Capitan Pacha, and two smaller ships of the line. The crews of the two latter succeeded in extinguishing the flames, but the Admiral's ship blew up, with the Capitan Pacha and the whole crew. The corpse of tlie Capitan Pacha was found floating on the sea, and wa^ buried at Seio the next day. The Greeks bad already made two other attempts, which failed— Their stratagem must have been contrived this time with great cunning and ability " It may be foreseen that the Capitan Pacha will be severely blamed for his delay at Scio ; but he had, doubtless, reason for it, and the catastrophe of the 19th might as well have happened a fortnight before. His death, however, i3 a great loss to the Porte, both in the command of the fleet and in the deliberation of the Divan. Caramahmed Pacha, who is appointed to suc- ceed him, was some years back General of the Artillery, and is accounted a brave and able man ; but whether he has a sufficient knowledge of naval affairs is another question; and as he is now at Patras, his being at such a distance will be very injurious in many respects." feeling of the British Cabinet with regard to his preten- sions. As, however, it has been declared from authority . that our Government baa protested in strong terms against the pretended, right of) bis Imperial Majesty, it is pro- bable that he will dee © it not only advisable, but abso- lutely accessary to conesde the point at issue.

Borthwici, the cashier of the bank of East Lothian, in Scotland, who was arrested a few days ago, and who is advertised, and charged with having eloped with one hundred anil seventy- seven thou- sand dollars, of the funds of that institution, was brought be- fore Judge Charlton, by writ of Habeas Corpus. ; .. Borthwick was committed by a judge, under a general affi- davit that he answered the description of the cashier, who was in default to the bank of Lothian. Judge Charlton decided, that the prisoner was not charged with any criminal offence— and that if he had been, that offence would appear to have been committed in a foreign country, over which the court had no jurisdiction. There was no prin- ciple of amity, or international law, which would authorise the arrest ofa fugitive from the justice ofa foreign independent sovereignty. It must be a matter entirely dependent upon treaty arrangement. Upon these grounds, if we correctly understood tile judge, lie directed the prisoner to be discharged. Borthwick, however, was immediately afterwards arrested by order of the judge, on a bill in Chancery, praying for the writ ne eleat— a discovery of the i. fFatrs in relation to the bank, and for an account— and required to give bail to abide the de- cree. He lias leave, however, after notice, as we are informed, to move to set aside this writ of ne exeat. The prisoner not being able to procure bail has been com- mitted to gaol. Jmpertal Bavliamcnt. HOUSE OF LORDS. Tuesday, July 30. The Royal Assent was given by Commission to a number of public and private Hills. Lord HOLLAN 1") asked when the Noble Earl ( Liverpool) intended to move the next stage of the Scots Burghs Accounts Bill, as it was E measure of such importance that he wished to be present on its passing that stage. Lord LIVERPOOL replied that he saw no objection to taking the discussion, if any, to- morrow, upon the Bill. Wednesday, July 31. The Royal assent was given by commission to the lotteries bill, and the Court of King's Bench sittings bill. Lord HOLLAND moved that the House do resolve itself into a Committee on the Scotch Magistrates residence bill. Lord MELVILLE said that several Noble Lords had left town under the impression that this bill was not to be pressed farther, and therefore he felt bound to oppose it, and he should move that it be committed this day month. Agreed to. The appropriation bill was brought up from die Commons, and the bills before the House were advanced a stage, and their Lord- ships adjourned On Thursday and Friday, their Lordships forwarded the bills before the house AMERICA, tJc. Letters from Washington, of the date of the 25th ult. mention that fresh dispatches had been received from Russia, stating that the Emperor entertained the most friendlv disposition towards nil powers, but particularly to the United States ; but his Imperial Majesty, it ap- peared, had not consented to withdraw the edict respect- ing the Russian possessions on the western coast of America. Matters therefore remained in precisely the same situation as by the preceding accounts; and it was conjectured that the Emperor had delayed giving any specific answer to the remonstrances of the American GoTerftmcst until he had ascertained what v/ as the real HOUSE OF COMMONS. Thursday, July 25. THE SINKING FUND. Mr. HUME rose to bring under the consideration of the House his resolutions on this subject, and on the state of our finances. It would, no doubt, be considered by many as a bold proceeding on bis part thus to step forward and challenge a system, upon which, with the sanction of our greatest finan- ciers, our finances had been conducted for the last 50 years ; but he was persuaded he should be able to prove to the House, that, notwithstanding the sanction it had received, this system was fallacious. A sinking fund, he believed, was acknowledg- ed on all hands to be a sum sot apart to accumulate, at com- pound interest, towaids paying off the national debt. The House were acquainted with Mr. Pitt's opinion as to the merits of a sinking fund, as declared by that individual at the time he proposed its establishment. He differed from that opinion; he did not think a sinking fund could ever be established to act with advantage to a country in any situation, if left to act with- in itself, for that which was given to the sinking fund must be taken first from the people. It must be disadvantageous to the amount of the money expended in the management, even if the country had a surplus revenue ; but much more must it be so when we had no surplus, as had been our case for the last 24 years ; as he would show that we had borrowed money at a higher rate, and greater loss, to advance to this fund, than could be made up by the advantages to be afterwards derived from the sinking fund. If he could show that on ac- count of this sinking fund we bad borrowed more money than we should otherwise have done, he thought he should have established this fact; for it would be clear to every one, that if, instead of borrowing, as we had done, 60C millions, we had borrowed only 300 millions. We should have borrowed on better terms. The great evil of our system had been borrowing at all, departing from the wholesome system of raising the sup- ply of the year within the ye3r. Had we done so, what Would have been our situation now ? instead of 3 dt'btof 35 millions, we should have had one of seven millions annually ; and in this situation we might have been, by raising five millions in each year, instead of borrowing, if we omitted what had actu. illy been borrowed for the purposes of the sinking fund. On the 5th of January 1793, the capital of debt was 239 millions,— He had divided his statement under two heads, namely, from 1793 to 1817, during which time we had a deficiency of in- come ; and the second head was from 1817 to 1822. from which period we had a surplus income. Now, from 1793 to 1817 we had borrowed and funded 110 less than 6' 18 millions, but for this sum borrowed we haul actually received only 57$ millions; the difference, therefore, was total loss to the public. Calculating the compound interest on the 50 millions, the loss was, in bonus and interest, about 54 millions. He had, how- ever, not included that, though the saving of the income tax of 10 per cent, on these loans was an evident loss to the public. He hoped that next session he should be able to show, by more accurate statements, that on the whole 29 years there was a loss of 38 millions to the public. If there were any errors, they, were those of several excellent accountants that he had employed. The fourth resolution showed, that if the whole of the annuities had been converted into 3 per cent, stock, as if the Chancellor of the Exchequer had borrowed in that, it would have given a difference of 2millions out of 1001 millions. This was, therefore, a loss to the public, as being j borrowed in too high stock, of 25-| millions ; and that had i caused a payment of L. 766,000 interest more than they ought | to have paid. The difference of 10s. interest would, in 57 years, if allowed to accumulate, have paid off the 3 per cents, j at par. Whatever had been saved on the 5 per cents, during I the 37 years was advantageous to the public above all the other j funded savings. There was, however, a loss in the redemp- i tion of 188 millions of b- 602.000. The 10th resolution sfrew- ! ed that in the 24 years the total revenue fiom taxes amounted to 1114 millions. Though they had live millions surplus, they borrowed 90 millions at L A : Si 3d. per cent.; and out of this they paid 12 millions to the Commissioners of the sink- ing fund, and they had purchased, since 1- 817, at a loss of L. 2,6^, 000, This was a most serious loss to thej) ubiic,— During i> ie whole £ *> years < lliey hac! borrow^, or. ti?.- average, L.;> and JOd per cent. This was a.' loss erfaal to 38 ' millions; which would not have happened- if the sinking fund hr. d never existed; - $ ince; i81? to- 1822-- wd> had increased our annua? charge by L. 300,000 and. upwards. His either resolutions were Uiatters of deduction entirely, and therefore liable to dis- pute., The 28th and 29' U; shewed that to pa\ i-} 38 millions j we hatj actually borrowed above* 400 millions. U per ha ps was not known, that, Up to 1817 the people of England had never gii% n a farthing except towards- the interest of the debt, and since that, they had only begu n,(, Jp . pay off the debt itself. Since 1819 the Chancellor of the Exchequer had an excess of revenue over the charge, which rendered it unnecessary for him to go into the mairket to borrow any money whatever. The remain- ing resolutions shewed? the savings that might haVfl Lve^ n made in, funding the debt without having Such a fallacious scheme as the sinking - fund. If we had not had that, we should have only had an annual charge of nine millions a year, sin con- clusion he contended, that no reduction had been made in the debt since 1793; but thai the debt had increased 6Q0 millions, being an annual charge of twenty- two ^ millions. Notwith- , standing the care of Mr. Pitt, no Chancellor of . the Exchequer had there been since his time who had not laid hands, on the sinking fund. lie hoped he should at length be able to in- ' duce the House to give up the sinking fund entirely, and es- pecially because the Chancellor of the Exchequer could so easily lay hold of it, and to prevent any reduction of taxes, which must occasion an increase of pauperism. There was a degree of delusion in thinking that a sinking fund kept up public credit ; but that might have been done by having fewer loans. lie thought he coulii shew in the whole 29 years 50 millions fiad been gi\ en away to contractors. The effect of giving money to the Commissioners for reducing the national debt enabled them to raise the price of the money market against the Chancellor of the Exchequer himself. If we had a surplus revenue, let them apply it the only useful way- it could be employed, and that was by taking off taxes as the surplus continued to increase. Every one knew that a sinking fund in this country was unfounded. There was no such thing. He wished to know Why there had been 17 millions of foreign loans contracted for in thiv country during the year.- r- Such was the productiveness of capital in this country, that there was every expectation of the funds being at par before long, and without any sinking fund. It was in vain to talk of preserving faith with the public creditor, for that had been very often broken. There might be inaccuracies in his resolutions, but he hoped the House would agree in the first that he should move, namely, that early in the next session the House would take into consideration the state of our finances. The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER said, it was impossible, in so short a time, for him to say whether these statements of the Hon. Gentleman were or were not correct.— He wished, therefore, to be understood as neither admitting nor denying them, especially as they were intended to precede some other measures of the Hon. Gentleman to be proposed in the next session of Parliament. He therefore thought it would be better to adjourn the consideration of them till next, session. In 1812 the House came to a resolution similar to the Hon. Gentleman's proposition ; for it said that it was better to carry on the war by war taxes, raised within the year, and not by resorting to loans. In this respect he could oiler no objection to the resolutions ; but he could not agree in those parts of them where the Hon. Gentleman had adopted the opi- nion of Dr. Hamilton on the management of the sinking fund. As to the future management of the finances of the country, that had better be taken into consideration when the Hon. Gentleman brought that part of the subject more fully.. before the House. The Hon. Gentleman mistook the principle ofa sinking fund, which, in his opinion, should only exist in time of peace, and when there was a surplus beyond the expenditure. But if this was to be applied to taking off taxes, that would make the debt permanent. He moved as an auiendmeut, that the farther consideration of the resolutions be adjourned till this day three months. Mr. G REX FELL did not agree with his Hon. Friend in wishing to destroy the sinking fund, both with a view to na- tional faith and the extinction of the debt.— Still the mode used by the Commissioners of the national debt was a great absurdity, in raising the price of the market, as the Chancellor of the Exchequer had to come into it for a loan. He considered this motion as intended to attract the attention of the House to this subject before next session. Mr. HUME replied shortly. Mr. VANSITTAItT'S amendment was then carried with- out a " division. Tuesday, July SO. ADJOURNMENT OF THE HOUSE. The Marquis of LONDONDERRY grated that it was his intention to- morrow to move the adjournment of the House until Mondav next. SCOTCH BURGHS. Lord ARCHIBALD HAMILTON wish - d to submit a motion relative to the Scots Burghs, previous to the adjourn- ment of the House. It would be for a return of the number of Councils of the different Burghs of Scotland. He understood that some objection would be made to the motion. The Marquis of LON DONDERR V said it was perfectly competent for the Noble Lord to submit the motion to morrow. PIRATES. Mr. MAIIYATT rose to present a petition from the ship- owners and merchants of the city of London, complaining of danger and losses to which the British merchants were exposed from pirates, the diminution of British trade, and the conse- quent injury of the shipping interest. The honourable mem- ber said, that British ships of trade were exposed to every spe- cies of danger and annoyance in the South American seas.— Chili and Peru at present in a state of warfare, and the Bri- tish ships, unprotected by British men of war, were exposed to the alternate fire of each of those contending parties. The Hon. gentleman next said, that the British merchants had another cause of complaint, with respect to the policy of foreign nations, where Spanish or other ships, taken by pirates, were recaptured by the British— those ships were immediately res- tored ; but the same measures of justice and liberality was not dealt out by foreign powers— they refused to restore British ships so recaptured. Sir GEORGE COCKBURN expressed his surprise that the honourable gentleman did not see the distinction between those ships which carried the flags of other States, and absolute Pirates which carried the flag ot no State whatever. All that the vigilance of the Admiralty could effect, was to take all vessels that had committed any aggressions on our trade, or any ships which had not committed aggressions, but against which cause of suspicion existed. The honourable gentleman ran into an eulogiutn on the American Navy. Why did not the American Navy annihilate those Pirates ? They were upon the American coast. If instead of frequenting those distant seas they lurked about Spithead, the honourable gentleman might rest assured that they would not long remain to interrupt the trade of this or ai> y other country. After some remarks from Lord Londonderry. Mr. Bright, Mr. Croker, and Dr. Lusliington, the petition vfas read and laid on the table. Wednesday, July 31. lord A. HAMILTON submitted to the House the mo- tion of which he yesterday gave notice respecting the number of the Town Council of the several burghs of Scotland, and their residence in the several Royal Burghs.— Agreed to. Mr. ABERCROMBY, adverting to the papers relating to the Lord Advocate's case, which he had mentioned on a for- mer night, expressed a hope that the papers would be before the House by Monday. On the order of the day for the third reading of the appro- priation acti Dr. LUSHINGTON objected to the terms on which the grant of 12,5001. was made to the executors of her late Ma- jesty, as likely to be productive of great inconvenience to the executors, the servants, and the creditors of her late Majesty. The granting its appropriation was confined to persons who had furnished goods or done work for her late Majesty. Now there were some individuals who had advanced money to her out of their own pockets, and by this appropriation they were totally excluded from any benefit under this grant: The Hon. and Learued Gentleman then proceeded to detail certain circumstances connected with her Majesty's pecuniary circum- stances previous to and pending the trial of the charges institu- ted against her The Hon. Member also read the correspon- dence which took place between himself and the Government; immediately after her arrival in England, relative to her future residence and establishment, and contended that* by the letter of Lord Liverpool on that subject, Government were bound to make good the expences of her outfit and establishment at that time, and that these charges ought to have been made good in- dependent of the vote now proposed; as her Majesty had been left to commence her career as Queen of this country without a single shilling allowed to her for procuring such an outfit as was required to her high and exalted station in society. Me was of opinion that her Majesty, independent of the 55,0001. a- year, should have had an allowance for plate, carriages, furniture, & c. It was the farthest from her Ma- jesty's disposition to have incurred debt to any one, but the treatment she had received had obliged her to do so. After her Majesty's death, he laid a statement of her affairs before Lord Liverpool. Her English debts amounted to about 34,0001. ; her foreign obligations to 10,0001. j on the other side her effects amounted to about 16,4001. to which might now be added the present grant of 12,5001. making about 29,0001.; but from this must be deducted certain expences of sale & c. and thus would be left seven shillings in the pound at least deUcient in the English debts; bat by the appropria- tion of the present grant, some of them would get twenty shillings in the pound, and others Vt- ould not get a farthing.— Now as to the foreign property of her Majesty, tie had no hesi- tation in saying, that at the1 time of her Majesty's death her . property, in Italy was worth 30.0001. but during her residence in England much of this property had been taken afray, great (.'^ predations having been committed *;- « As soon a| her Majesty died, a'rtiessenger was dispatched to' rare of the projjjfeity as he should lind it, but it was foundT* msh diminish- ed, in valti^. If her Majesty's Jtalian creditors"' W'ould take her Majesty's Italian property in payment, and re:? 5 . satisfied, he should bp most content-; but unfortunately they- would not, but had -. determined to proceed against him in hii character of executor,'- and, as stich, He was ; answerable. Stfch was the state of her Majesty's affairs. - He*, Majesty hade for many years given up.. 1.6,0001- a- year tathe^ country of that income which Parliament toad assigned to her •• and it shouf* jlj) Qw> tfe • considered that a grant of one year of. arrears, of whr-^ j Seve- ral y& Ars were in fact- due to her Majesty, would pajfiall the just dibt's- riow resting aga « i< t her, and satisfy the demands of those whose claims against- her were mo^ t equitable. He.- was convinced the- personal feelings of the Noble Marquis vV- g% ihi induce him to this course j and he trusted the Qne^ H being now no mora; and all party fee. lingn at an end, he con- fidently hoped this course would be adt> j> ted. - » Mr.' LUSHING TON', in reply, £ ud, . the pravhfon td w& ii'h the Hon. Gentleman had alluded had" beef? introduce?! into the- bill for the purpose '^ protecting her - Majesty's- feri^- lish tradesmen. Had it not been for this provision, all her Majesty's debts must have remain^ tM hrr ItaIirai- property had l^ een converted ftoto money, and it could have been as- certained what proportion could be assigned to each of hot creditors. As to the payment, jvhich her Majesty had received, he contended it had been more liberal than those held out to her by Lord Liverpool's letter. He considered. the limitation as a wise one, as it would be much more dishonourable to suf- fer tradesmen who had Furnished heni Majesty with necessaries to go unpaid, than it would be to stiffer others of more exalt- ed rank, who had made loans, & c. to> incur some ri. ski _ The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER acknow- ledged, that some part Of her Majesty '^ Outfit of carriages. See. were to be paid for by Government, and not to be deducted from her income of 35.0001. and advances had been mad^ to her accordingly ; but other obligations were afterwards incur- red, for which Government ivere not at all pledged. In fact, & o far from Government not having fulfilled its engagements with her Majesty, the sum paid to her in 14 months, was 78,0001. and her law expenses were fixed at an unlimited sum. He called on the House to reflect a little, before they adopted such a proposition as that now brought forward, namely, that Parliament- should take on itself to pay , ail the debts of any branch of the Royal Family.' Sucfc a proposition had never been made before, and lie hoped never would again, Mr HUME denied the assertion of the Hon. Gentleman who spoke ) ast, that her Majesty had had more* than was held out toher by, Lord Liverpool's letter; Lord Liverpool said, that during the pending inquiry her Majesty should be con- sidere. d as entitled to the sum she received under the decision of Parliament of 1814; now that allowance was 50,0001. though her Majesty had declined to receive niore^ thah 35,0001. so as to house furniture, carriages, & c._ Lord Liverpool had sent persons to examine these, and to inquire into the expence of them. If Government had not considered themselves bound to pay for those things, what right had they to make any such inquiries. He thought all her Majesty's English creditors should be paid, although no advance s- hould be made for her foreign creditors till her foreign property was settled and dis- posed of. ;•- i \ After a few words from Mr. Alderman Smith, A ft. W. Smit% and the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the bill was read a third time and passed. ADJOURNMENT OF THE " HOUSE. The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER moved that'the House, , at its rising, do adjourn until Monday. Mr. BENNETT was anxious to- take- this opportunity of expressing his great satisfaction that the prayers, of the people had been attended to, and that a certain reduction had been madji in the taxes and the expenditure of the state. The House had taken a greater stride towards improvement than in many Sessions past. The influence of the • rown had been diminished; and by the votes of the House two important offices had been reduced. I n the next Session, lie should call the attention of Parliament farther to the subject of the influence of the Crown. It iivas not to be endured that 10 Placemen should hold seats in Parliament. He congratulated the House upon the vote for Reform, because- it was a pledge by those who voted in its favour that they would not. auction, but oppose to the utmost the corrupt influence of the House, He. should have no objection to the terms of reformers and anti- reformers, and he should be happy to be classed among the number of the former. The parties of Whig and Tory might now be considered as extinct; and until a reform were attain- ed, at least this new title might be given to the contending political parties. lie hoped that next year the House would meet at an earlier period, to avoid sitting so late as August. After a few words from Mr. BUTTER WORTH and Dr. PHILLlAJOtiE. Mr. IIUJIH said, lie was not so well satisfied with the proceedings of the House as the Hon. Member for Shrewsbury. He considered that Government had not acted upon a sound policy. Sufficient reductions had not been made. With re- gard to the agriculturists, it would have been much more man- ly for Parliament to have said We cannot afford you ade- quate relief." The House would not do its duty if from seven to ten millions were not reduced next year. He wished country gentlemen to think tor themselves, and pin their faith no longer on Ministers. With respect to Ireland, nothing but coercion had been used. Mr. H. MARTIN defended the measures of Ministers, He neither hoped nor wished for any office under Government, ( a laugh.) He assured the House that he would not accept of any if it were offered toliim Mr MABERLY could not congratulate the House upon any material reduction in the expenditure. After an explanation from Mr. BENNETT, the motion was put and carried. Mr. BENNETT gave notice, that early next Session it was the intention of the Hon. Baronet ( Sir K Burdett) to sub- mit a motion relative to corporal punishments in the army.— He ( Mr. Bennett) would also bring forward a motion regard- ing military courts of justice, Mr. HUME gave notice, that unless spme steps were taken by Ministers, he would next S ssion submit a motion re- garding the Court establishment of Ireland. The oilier orders of the day were then disposed of, and the House adjourned. LONDON, August 3. Saturday morning the Honourable Sir Charles Paget, K. C. B. hoisted at Portsmouth the superior broad pen- dant of a Commodore,, which confers on Him the same honours and advantages as are enjoyed bv a Rear- Admi- ral— Captain William James Mingav having been ap- bointed to command the lloval George yacht, under the broad pendant. The usual honorary salutes took place between the Commodore's and the Commander in Chiefs ships. Captain Mingay took the command of the ltoyal George on Thursday. Lieutenant George Russell ( son of Lord John Russell), is appointed Signal Lieutenant to the Commodore. She sailed yesterday for Greenwich, accompanied by the Calliope and Oameleon tenders, to await his Majesty's embarkation for Scotland, which, it is believed, will take place about the 8th of August. The Phaeton frigate, Captain W. A. Montague, C. 15. the Forte frigate, Sir Thomas Cochrane, and the Egeria, 28, Captain J To if]) Nicholas, C. B. sailed on Thursday for the Nore, where the Royal squadron has been ordered to assemble. The Lord Chamberlain a! id the Secretary of State, with their respective suites, will, it is said, embark in the Forte frigate, Sir Thomas Cochrane. The only Equerries that will attend his Majesty to Scotland are General Bavly and Sir II. Vivian. Parliament will be prorogued oii Tuesday bv the King in person, and Thursday is mentioned as the day on which his Majesty will leave London for Scotland. It. is expected he will embark on board a steaul- vessel, somewhere about Tilburv Fort, opposite Gravesend, where several steam- vessels will be stationed to receive His suite, and then proceed to the Royal Squadron at the Nore. It is stated the Portuguese Gorernment has acknow- ledged the Columbian Republic, M Zea, we under- stand, has received dispatches through the Minister of Portugal resident hefe to the above effect.

No person must turn his back to the Ring in retiring. # •• On this'dcca^ ion, no geuttetean appear otherwise than in a full dress suit, with sword and bag 5 but haii powder is not now held to be indispensable. Gentlemen may appear in any uniform to which they have a right ; and for those who present themselves as Highlanders, the ancient costume of tTveir country is always sufficient dress. Those who Wear the Highland dr'ey, s must, however, be care- ful to be armed in the proper Highland fashion— s'eel- wrought. pistols, broad swoVd, and dirk. It is understood that Glengarry, Breadalbane, iluntly, and several other chieftains, mean to attend the lev'ee with their tail on, i. e. wiih a con- siderable attendance of their gentlemen followers. A hd, with- out doubt, this NSill add very greatly to the variety, grace- fulness, and appropriate splendour, of the scene. 44 The state rooms in Ilolyrood ( including the long gallery and 1 hS a'partriieuts lately occupied by the French Princes) are certah; iy much more spacious than those of. Carlton House or Bu^ kftigham House ; so that here a very favourable oppor- tunity for the display of courtly magnificence' is about to be afforded. . We may add, what all will hear with pleasure, the best iv'orks of Messrs. Raeburn, Allan, Nasmi. ih and the other SeottiJf artists, are to be exhibited in the Kind's presence chamber during the " stay oft he Court. " A considerable difference of opinion having arisen as to the propriety of gentlemen, privates, in yeomanry corps, wait- ing on the King in their uniform, it- may be as well tost . teat once what is th: e truth of the case. <• Every geiitleman in this situation may, without doubt, ap- pear before the'King in the dress of his regiment; but it must be the full dress, viz a coat with bkirts." & c. " On the fourth day, it is understood, his Majesty will hold a ( trawing- room. No gen tic man can come to the drawing room without having-. been previously presented at a levee. The proper ob- ject of the drawing- room is thte presentation'of Ladies; " Ladics' nre introduced to the King, either by 1 tidies who have already been at Court, or by the Lord in Waging. " Tl'ife Lacly drops her train ( about four y « rds in length) when she enters Hie circle of the King. It is held up by the The King raises her up, and salutes her on the cheek. She then retires, always facing the Sovereign till she is beyond the circle. A considerable difficulty i< presented to the uuexperi- t'need by the necessity of retiring ( without assistance) back- wards. The Ladies must exert their skill to move their trains quietly and neatly from behind them as they retire ; and tho* e strict! on of paper, issues, It is out of tlic question to ex- pec. t1 ble'- relief from the reduction of perhaps four miili& ife of t fixes, or that the c ami fry can reniain for many, months in its present state. It appears more than probabW that the interest of money must be still farther reduced ; some legislative enactirtent must speedily take ' place, to reduce the interest of debts contracted previ- ous)): to the present reduetion; and in such circumstances, it vy. oltld be th. e hei^ lit of injustice to pay the Stockholder in full/, at the expeuCe of'those- Who arc only receiving a small part of what they calculated upon as their certain • property. W « hike the following extract from the Aberdeenshife Agricukttrid • Report, Tn tfie Aherchdi Journal of the 7th, winch we believe to be a plain, un- varnished, and unexaggerated statement of the real Situa- tion of Farmers aud Landlords in this part of the coun- try. It is melancholy to turn to the state of the markets : al- tholigh we have been'favoured with- t- he most delightful sea- sons, and abundance in the land for. man and beast, the" situa- tion of the'Agriculturists never was so deplorable. As far as the season has gone,-.. the graziers have again lost the whole of the grass; and unless where the purchases were very Well made, from 10-. to 20s. on each ox more ; fine Stots, in full condition, bring 4s. to 4s. 6d. per stone*— and it is only very superior quality and condition united ' which'' will command 5s.: and even at these miserable prices, the demand is scarcely equal to take off the stock shewn. Corn markets are nearly as bad : Wheat brings 2Qs. to 2- ls. per Linlithgow boll; Oats, ( Potatoe) 15 s. 6d. ro 16s. for export; and'for very superior quality, the Aberdeen millers have been giving f> d. to is. more; common and early Angus Oafs, 13s. ( Jd. tol^ s ; Bear, 14s to IGs. for export ; 20s. to 24' sl if u can bo delivered OM the border of the highlands^ ( Our O- Hand Baf- ley measure is nearly equal to G| . Wiucbester bushels.) Oatmeal, 12s. 6d. to I. 3s. 6d. per HO lbs. ; Butter, 7d to 9d. and latterly lOd. per lb. of 28 oz. to- the country merchants, aud 10d. to Is. in the Aberdeen market. I'hfe disproportion betw. ixt the price of produce, and rent and expenees, is now so great as to leave no- doubt of, a fall in botli ; and although few reductions have yet taken place in this country, the time is evidently not distant when proprietors will have only two choices— either to reduce the rent corresponding to the value of farm produce^ or to'take the lands into their'own hands; arrears are in the meantime accumulating, and the spirit of the tenantry sinking in ' proportion ; nor is there any probability of the times improving so much as to enable the most active tenant, holding land at rack rent, to wipe them off. farm servants have fallen about 25 Lord in Waiting till she is close to his Majesty.

A good ploughman who, during the war, would have got £ H for the half- year, will now be got at =£ 6 ! and had rents fallen in the same proportion, the relief would have been great, and probably the interest of landlord and tenant more | effectually promoted in the end— for Agricultural capital is who have never worn such dresses should lose no time in be- jj ginning to practise this. Most painful must be thesi'uation of a young female who is so unfortunate as to make a faux pan on such an occasion, ft was by no means so difficult when hoops Were in fashion ; but now that these have been discarded, there is nothing to assist in keeping the - train oft'the ground.

The French army, ridiculously called the cordon sanitairc, I.; to enter Spain in aid of the legitimate, cause, while strong bodies of the allied s will enter France, to overawe what patriotic spirit yet remains in that country, and allow the French army to become altogether disposeable. It is said, that operations will eonimence. in October, and yet we hear of no adequate preparation on the part of the Patriots of < sp;) in— no general levy of troops— nor summary pro- ceedings against those whose hostility lo the cause ol lilcrty is, and has been, long notorious, although it is very evident, that they have more to fear from domestic than foreign enemies It is understood, that Russian troops are to be employed to act against Spa: n ; but as vet, we hear nothing of how the expence of this Holy War is to be defrayed, and ALEXANDER lias already a heavv claim upon the Allies, for his forbearance in the case of Turkey. The Great Diplomatist, the Mamuls of LONDONDERRY, proceeds however very soon to as- sist at another Congress, and explain every thing to the satisfaction of all concerned. Indeed, if a few posts do not bring accounts that the Spanish Patriots have adopted active aud energetic measures for the preservation of the Constitution, it must be considered as in extreme danger; for MORILLO has still very great influence with the army, and however well he may have affected to support the patriots during the partial insurrection of the Royal guards, he is unquestionably their enemy, and will so manifest himself, whenever a favourable opportunity occurs. It is said by some, that whatever measures the Cortes may adopt against their enenyes, the inviolability of the King must save him— but circumstances must be taken into account. As loner as a Km ' maintains in- . ° violate the engagement and obligations he , owes to his people, his person ought to be held sacred; but if, on the contrary, after having solemnly accepted the Consti- tution, and sworn to defend it, he plots its distinction, and would foment rebellion against the constituted au- thorities, even amongst his guards, he will no'.^ onbt be held responsible for his actions like anv other man., - It is believed, that the infants, his brothers, have already been tried for the part they acted during the late insur- rection. The discussion in the Frencit Chamber of De- puties, concerning the designs formed against the liberties of Spain, have of late been verv animated, and at times disorderly. The ultra party no longer dissemble their intentions to put down the free Constitution, while their opponents reprobate the attempt as base and unjust, and in every respect unworthy of the French nation.— There is no doubt, however, of the fact, that the inde- pendent party in France are to be overawed bv foreign troops, anil may perhaps be expected to pay for their protection. The prosperity of all classes of Frenchmen, since the peace, may contribute for a time to check the re- action that such indignities are calculated to produce, but when . excited, the great resources of the country must render it truly formidable. The venerable FAY- ETTE, even at his advanced period of life, enters wariu- lv into these discussions in the Chamber, and still mani- fests that manly independence of character, which shone out so conspicuously at the Revolution.

Upon the same ' occasion, the Stewards of the Turriff Dis- trict took tm ! er consideration what appeared to them the plan best suited to their District, of appropriating the premium of L. 20 awarde I by the Association, for the encouragement of Vetcr nary S irgery, the which it was optional to the Stewards to give in such manner as was most likely to procure the resi dence of persons skilled in that profession, within the different districts of the county. In so far as regards the Turriff district, there was laid before them, an application from Mr. John Keith, Surgeon and Apothecary in Turriff, accompanied by ample testimonials, from which it appeared, that lie had been educated under a Veterinary Surgeon of eminence in Edin- burgh— that be had made the diseases of cattle a particular s udy — that he was well acquainted with Pharmacy, and that he hadilre idy practised with considerable success at TasrriSand ! ls vicinity. The Stewards were therefore of opinion, that Mr. Keith was entitled lo the' premium of L. 20 ; and it was ac- cordingly awarded to him upon the conditions prescribed by the Committee— namely, that he should continue to reside and practice in the district, and give the preference to Members of the Association. The au aril was then intimated to Mr. Keith, who expressed his thanks lo the Stewards, aud readily under- took to comply with the Regulations prescribed. gives no additional accounts cf the Greenland Whale KslieTy, to those formerly stated.

MOON'S AGE. C Last Quarter, the 10th Aug. at 4h. l( y MornimV. At the close of the Session of Parliament, reflections naturally turn to the state of the country, and what re- lief is like to be experienced from the reduction of taxa- tion, which has uo doubt been considerable, and greater than was to be anticipated at the opening. But many causes cooperate to prevent the people from enjoying that relief, which the abatement of taxes to the amount of several millions at other times would have offered— . the Farmer cannot obtain a fair price for his produce, and consequently is in arrcar to his Landlord, who must soon reduce his rents or take his farms into his own hands. The annuitant, by the reduction of interest fitids twenty per cent, of his income gone ; and manufactures and Com- merce are well known to be in a most depressed state, in which speculations are more than usually hazardous; as markets are yet uncertain. In this state of things, and while money is daily becoming scarcer, from the re- On Sunday last, a fine young woman, servant to a family m town, was unfortunately drowned in one of the locks of the Canal, near the end of Virginia Street. In crossing the Canal by one of the gates, she lost her balance, and fell backwards into the lock : the gates being shut, there w- ere 12 to 14 feet water in. the Ipck at the time, so that a consiiletable space elapsed before the body was got out. Mr. WILSOX. of the Customs, kindly received the unfortunate girl into his house, and humanely afforded every possible accommoArtron to ihe Medical Gentlemen who attended ; but. all their efforts tore- store suspended animation, we are grieved lo say, failed of success.

The accounts having been examined, tlie funds were found to be in a very flourishing condition. They then proceeded to the election of Offiee- bearesr. when JOHN POLSON was unanimously chosen MASTER, ALEX. I-' IDDES, Depute- Master. David Cromar, treasurer; William Grant, John Thomson, and John Robertson, keybearers ; John Strouach, Alex. Smith, and James Brown, stewards ; Alex. Thomson, clerk William Linton, Officer. After which, tbe Brethren paraded the streets, accompanied hy a full band of music. At four o'clock, an excellent dinner was served up in the Town Hall, when many appropriate and loyal toasts were given in honour of the occasion. The even- ing's harmony was concluded with a ball at which tbe Scottish Florist dames tripp'd upon the • light fantastic toe', until the downing of the succeeding day. We do not recollect that the display of beauty or fashion was ever equalled upon the like occasion. At Fraserburgh, the Herring Fishing commenced some weeks a go. and several cargoes have been already sent from thence to the Continent ; the quality of the herrings have been uncommonly tine, and we have no doubt the industry and per- severance of those engaged in the trade will be amply recom- pensed by quick sales. For some years past, Fraserburgh has enjoyed a considerable share in ibis branch of trade, and we trust that it will continue to do so. as it has the advantage of a spacious harbour, of easy access to vessels of all descriptions.

There is a new law fov regulating the sale of bread, of which it is interesting to ail millers, floor dealers, and bakers, to know the particulars. After the 2Cth September, no baker is to make or sale peek loaves, half peek, or quarieru loaves, under a penalty not exceeding I,.! 0 nor less than 40s. With excep- tion of French anil fancy bread or rolls, bakers are to sell f eir bread by weight, undera penalty pot tu- wnling 40s. They are allowed to make bread of what weight and size they please, ex- cept of the weight and siZc above- prohibited ; but they are not only to sell it by weight, but to sell it iu tie otlier way. ' Tney are compelled by the act to weigh, all their bread in the pre. sence of the party purchasing,' whether fequired by the pur- chaser or not, under a'pennjty not exceeding 10s.
