ON looking over some old papers t'other day, I found a copy of the original deed, by Sir ALEXANDER HAY, Clerk Register, mortifying to the Magistrates of Aberdeen certain feu- duties for the support of the Bridge of Balgony, now ycleped Polgonv, otherwise the Bridge of Don Fund. If I mistake not, the impartial Historian- in one of his Tomes gives this important deed in Latin, at full length., I shall, therefore, only trouble you with the last sentence : requesting, through the medium of your useful paper, a literal translation from some one of your municipal pious learned pillars of the Sea- men's Church, which will oblige an ignorant J. P. Ad reparationem et sustentationem dicti Pontis applicari et ad ttullos alios usus prout JDeo in extremo judicio responderc voluerunt. To the EDITOR of the ABERDEEN CHRONICLE. SIR, NOTWITHSTANDING what your Correspondent Herce- site Mastix has said, and after giving all that weight to his numerous marks of admiration which they no doubt deserve, I am at a loss to understand how it can bethought derogatory to the dignity or character of any Clergyman, whether belong, ing to the Churches of Rome, of England, or of Scotland, or to any ofthe various branches of these Churches, for the Con- gregation. which gives him a call, to expect that he should con- tinue stedfast in the faith in which he } ias been solemnly or-, dained, in the presence of God, and before the world. With respect to promises, the very essence of the obligation consists in the natural tendency of the words, to raise hopes in the mind of the man, to whom, or in whose favour the promise was made ; and all after explanations, especially ivhen the party has acted in consequence of such an as- surance, must be considered casuistical or evasive: and mo » t certainly they do little credit either to religion or mora- lity. No man will have the hardihood to controvert this, and affix his name to the denial. I recommend to all vour readers the perusal, or re- perusal, of Paley's chapter on promises, in his Moral and Political Philosophy : and I shall satisfy myself with extracting the following short passages. From the account we have given of the obligation of pro- mises, it is evident that this obligation depends upon the ex- pectations, which we knowingly and voluntarily exc. ite. Con- sequently, any action or conduct towards another, which we are sensible excites expectations in that other, is as much a j promise, and creates as strict an obligation, as the most express { assurances." He adds elsewhere—' Promises are not bind- ing, when they contradict a former promise, because the per- formance is then unlawful." The charges of heresy, circumlocution, and bad grammar, are too personal to myself for me to enter upon them. To deny them is quite enough, as all of them, at best, have only- been asserted. Now for one parting caution to your Correspondent him- self.

SIR, 1 have often thought that it would be beneficial to the Ship- ping Interest of this Port, if the' Tide Light, which is hoist at half flood, was kept up till half ebb,' ( a* it is at Scarborough and other Tide Harbours) but to be left to the judgment of • the Pilot or Harbour Master that Tioists it, as it would be im- proper to keep it hoist longer than high water with a Westerly wind, when a vessel could not get in, although there would be no danger— but itis certainly still worse to haul the light down exactly at high water, When the Wind is from N- E. or S. when a vessel, when there is no high sea, can run for the har- bour as well when the tide is one or two hours ebbed, and even three, if she do not draw much water, with as much safety as at high water; and I am confident fro. n experience, that if the light was kept up, it would'savfc many vesseis a tide, which, at this season, might be saving both lives and property. If you think, Mr. Editor, that these few lines will be of any service, you will be kind enough to give them a corner in your valuable paper, which will oblige, Sir, yours truly, A COAL SKIPPER. P.

For this purpose his Majesty's bizr Cherokee, commanded by Captain Keats, ajrpc& red'Tri Kes- sock Roads a few days ago. The state of the weather and tides, has hitherto prevented Mr. Adam's discovery being pu: to the test of experiment. A man of war has not been up stf far in the Frith in the memory of the oldest inhabitant; and the novelty of the sight attracted crowds of spectators t" the shore; At first our countrymen approached the formidable stranger with due caution ; but the officers having, with unremitting attention, received about 600 visitors whom curiosity had. at-> tracted on new year's day, a closer intercourse had since been kept up. On Saturday, Captain Kea'. s and his officers en- tertained a large party of ladies and gentlemen of the tow it and neighbourhood on board, in a manner which all who were present continue to speak of with delight. The behaviour of the crew, while on shore has been in all instances most praise- worthy, the officers having set the example of propriety of at- tending divine service in the established church on Sunday/ The Cherokee is now lying in the basin of the Caledonian Canal in 10 feet water; being the first of his Majesty's ships, which has parsed through the locks of that great national work: Inverness Courier. A numerous and very respectable meeting of the tenantsort the estate of Glengarry, took place at Macphee-' s inn, on Fri- day the 27th ultimo, when they partook of a sumptuous din- ner, to testify their high; esteem and most sincere gratitude to their worthy proprietor, Colonel Alexander Ranaldson Mac- d on el I of Glengarry, by drinking his health and that of- his ex- cellent lady and family, in the. most, respectful cordiality, for the very liberal and seasonable deduction of rents, being percent, on the rents for - 1.821, and 20 per cent, on the renti collected at Martinmass, 1822. At last collection along witlx the abatement of rents, the worthy. chief gave the tenants par- ticular satisfaction, by his cordially entering into the feelings, ofc*. distress which they must have experienced from the great aud, continued depression of the price or' allfarm produce.

Hut it is my anxious wish, and ( as j far a< I c* n f< tesee and confront the course of my own thoughts j and expressions.) my fixed determination, not to suffer the j faintest allusion to escape me, which could endanger the quiet j or ruffle the temper of a tenowned seat of learning, where the j objects pufitted were those whirh are equally esteemed by rea- sonable and vti'muis men of every description ; and where nothing is r. uyht. or ought to he ^ udied, but that which con- tributes to vender men good members of every honest party, and " oo'l subjects of every j ust government, I feel myself honoured and farmed by the consideration of the illustrious competitor to y hom you have preferred me.— " Cum quit contendere erat. gl'oriosius quant omnino adoersarium van habere" and T should wi. th the utmost pleasure have taken this opportunity of saving of him in public what 1 have always said in private— if the debt of my admiration had not already been paid bv my friend and predecessor, . Mr. Jeffrey, with an eloquence of which f will not mar the effect by any mixture of Ivss skilful praise. The presence of my excellent friend re- strains me from saying how: much I feel the honour of succeed- ing him. But 1 am sure that I shall be acknowledged to un- derstate my own feelings, and the general opinion, when I sisv that be is still more loved hy his friends than admired bv bearers aud readers, or than be has been sometimes dreaded bv writers ; and that he is almost a solitary example of so long and brilliant a career of literature, combined with a course of equal length ami brilliancy, in a laborious and generally ex- clusive profession. If I were capable of forgetting my resolu- tion to avoid what is called politics, I should feel a constant restraint from the presence of two of the dearest friends of my j youth, ( Lord Gillies and Alio way,) who I know would not be induced, even by friendship, to descend from judicial station, by mingling in any assembly where the discordant sounds of political contest could be apprehended. It is peculiarly grateful to me that any part of my conduct, in those public affairs, in which I am immersed, should be honoured with the approbation of those who are devoted to study, and there are many circumstances which render such a mark of distinction from a Scottish University more than commonly dear to me. It reminds me of the time, and the scenes in which I first imbibed that love of letters, which had ever afforded me the j most steady. enjoyment and the most unfailing consolation— where I learnt to estimate the pleasures of study, concerning which, after a life somewhat diversified and not very short. I can venture to confirm, almost from direct experience, the j celebrated testimony which had beefy borne by . the great orator j of Rome.- Tinec Studia Adolescentiamalunt, Senectuiem ob• iket'int, secun'lasres ornant. adnersis Perfuginni ae Solatium paebent." I feel the pleasure of my election sensibly incieas- eel by the youth of the greater part of the electors. There is something in the applause of youth ( which must be at least dis- interested.) which is more than ordinarily grateful to those who have passed through the mixed scenes and characters of. active life. It revives those remembrances of early years, which in- crease in their vivacity and charm at the period when hope begins to contract, and common enjoyments to languish. It transports the mind back to that age of simplicity and ingenu - ousness, when no cruel experience had crushed virtuous hopes or dispelled benevolent illusions. In your presence 1 feel a momentary renovation of these happy moments. I become one of you. I sympathise with your honest feelings; and I cannot but own that I feel that if T were in your situation I should long for an opportunity of acting from as pure motives as those which have influenced you, though I should wish to do so with happier success. I cannot so well express my feel- ings as in the language ofthe poet, when he comtemplated the scenes of his early st udies : — " I feel the gales that from ye blow, A momentary bliss bestow ; As waving fresh their gladsome wing, My weary soul they seem to sooth ; And, redolent of joy and youth, To breathe a second spring.'* But. Gentlemen, no personal gratification could induce me to commend an institution in which such privileges are granted to youth as those which you enjoy, unless I were convinced by reason and experience of their utility. But it appears to me ljiiat the ancient franchise enjoyed by the academic youth of this University for ages, may be justified on every ground of argument and fact. It contributes to sweeten study, to lighten obedience, and to make the youth proud as well as fond of an University which bestows upon them an unusual privilege, and places a generous confidence in their early discretion. In ap- pealing to experience, and looking over the lists of your Rectors, I cannot find that the youth of this University have ever made a bad return for this confidence, by a bad choice of their acade- mical magistrate. I see in these lists a selection regulated by the most reasonable principles— directed to every sort of emin- ence— from the conventional distinctions of rank and fort line to the national elevation of reason and virtue. I observe a due proportion of men,, distinguished by literature, and of those who have attained to eminence in the public service of their country ; for, with all tenderness to the feelings of men of letters be it. spoken, a still greater proportion of the highest powers of the human mind must be employed in the conspi- cuous duties of which the performance is necessary to preserve and improve the community, than , in those great works of li- I terature which are destined to the general delight, ornament, j and instruction of mankind. The youth of this University } have always observed these principles. They revere the philo- sopher— they admire the poet— but they have shown also that due value for those who frame laws, who administer govern- ment, who dispense justice. I can see no name in your lists which you can wish to be expunged, and I can see one im- mortal name which this' University probably owes the honour of numbering among her Magistrates to the generous spirit of her youth. In the year 1784, I doubt whether the governor of any academical institution would not have been too wary, j too exclusively timid, or if you will, too commendably cautious, to have chosen for their chitf magistrate a man then so obnoxi- ous to the powerful as Edmund Burke. The noble and un- corrupted spirit of your youth fearlessly placed at the head of ' this university the man whom I should have called the most philosophical of orators, if I do not think htm better characteris- ed as the most eloquent political ^ philosopher of the modern world. The mora! discipline by which the character of youth is fitted for the business of life, is fuli^ as important an object of a seminary of education as the instruction in science and literature which it imparts. Can it be wrong that the youth ofan Uni- versity should, among other preparations for manhood, be earl': accustomed to those elections for office, in which it may be the duty and privilege of many of them to take a part ? It seems reasonable to expect that this early practice may in some measure train them to habits of examination and deliberation, and at least may prevent them from being taken by surprise, from being elated . and intoxicated by such a franchise, when the free constitution of their country calls upon them to exercise it on occasions ofthe highest importance. May I venture to say that your right of electing your chief Magistrate will be fully vindicated, i fit be granted to'me that the remembrance of one honest and certainly disinterested election may shield some of you, on future occasions, against those ignoble tempta- tions by which you are sure to be assailed. In me, Gentlemen, you have selected a person who has little claim to your favour beyond the love of letters ; a warm attach- ment to his native country, and an honest performance of public duty ; for. iu every other respect, I should hold out to you as a warning the unfortunate effect'of that variety of pursuits which has so long retarded the execution ofthe literary projects of my youth, and has converted, into a period of anxious and fearful labour the approaches of ihat age which excuses some remission of industry, and tempts to some indulgence in repose. ' Beyond the bumble qualifications which I have mentioned, I am conscious that I owe your partiality chiefly to that happy generosity ofa youthful imagination which liberally bestows excellence on every object of its favour ; aided perhaps by that partiality of Scotsmen for their countrymen which is natural in such countries as ours ; and which, though ) aid to our charge as a fault, is enumerated by Citiero among the virtues ofthe people of those Italian Highlands, of which he was a native. 44 Tata ilia nostra aspera et montuosa etjidelis et simplex et fautrix suorym Iiegio. Gentlemen, The foundation of this University is contem- porary with the invention of Printing, when a few obscure mechanics, by the mere contrivance of a more rapid copying machine, altered the condition of the human race. It is not many years since the records of a lawsuit between two of these artizans have been discovered at Strasburgh, which took place in the year of the evacuation of France by the English army. That evacuation was doubtless regarded by all Europe with the interest which so great an event naturally inspired. The lawsuit was probably unknown beyflnd the street where the copyists carried ou their trade. How greatly has the import- ance of these two events been altered ! The dare of the evaroa- ! tion of France is remembered only by those who ate more than commonly accurate in their historical recollection. The dis- covery of printing will grow in interest and importance with every step in the progress of human civilization. The Reformation, by the destruction ofthe ancient hierarchy, seemed to destroy the chief stay of this University. But the progress of improvement, though it ma dor a moment shake and disturb, always fixes useful institutions on more solid founda- tions. The Reformation, a period for ever memorable, not only for the correction of religious error, but for the emancipa- tion of the human understanding, gave a naw life to this ^ University under the government of Andrew Melvitte, the lawgiver of the Presbyterian church. In the next century, the church of England was indebted to Gilbert Burnett, a Pro- fessor of Theology in the University of Glasgow, for the history of her reformation, and the exposition of her creed, and to the same excellent, man, the British nation owes an honest and spirited narrative of our deliverance from civil and religious tyranny. Gentlemen, Tn ( his University tlie sciences have not retired into solitudes, but have planted themselves in the midst ofthe activity and struggles of a great, populous, and commercial city, which has risen to be the second in Great Britain, and the thiid in the British islands. To this position it has owed great advantage. The eighteenth century has contributed two new sciences to ( he stock of human knowledge— chemistry aud political economy— and it is remarkable that the foundations of both were laid almost at the same moment within the walls where I have now the honour of addressing you. There is no one whom it can be necessary to remind, that I advert to the illustrious and- immortal names of Black and Smith. At the same time was made in this city by their friend and scholar, a man equal to them in genius and fame, Mr. Watt, the grandest application of science to the purposes of life, of which we have any information since the dawn of the arts, and the first rise of civilized society. Can we doubt that the genius of Smith was roused to the examination of the sources of wealth, by the scene of commercial enterprise which surrounded him, or that Wait placed, if I may so speak, within view of the confluence of two new sciences, was not led by his philosophical friends to apply the results of physical science to the aid of labour and the multiplication of the accommodations aud enjoyments of the human race ? Neither did these practical branches and views of science J daunt the University from the cultivation of those more abs- * truse speculations in which the genius ofthe Scottish nation seems from very ancient time* to have delighted. I say ancient times— for I hold in my hand an extract which I made some years ago from a description of the characters ofthe principal nations of Europe, hy the famous and unfortunate Servetus, prefixed to his edition of Ptolemy in 1553, in which he thus characterizes the Scotch. " Subila ingenia el ad ultionem prontpta ; ostentant plus ni/ nio nobililatem suam ut in summa etiam estate suum genus ad regiam stirpem referunt, neciwn dialecticis argutiis sibi blandiunturIt is curious to observe the operation of time and circumstances on the violent temper, the ostentation of birth, and the dispositions of metaphysical speculation, which three centuries ago were thought to be characteristical ofthe nation. Equal laws and general educa- tion have softened an angrv and vindictive temper into a gallant and honourable spirit. The progress of commerce and the diffusion of intelligence have abated the pride of birth. But the passion for abstract speculation, though it has entirely changed its object, continues to flourish with undiminished vigour. Before I proceed to exemplify this remark, the name of Servetus presents to my mind the only virtue which the ancient Calvinists wanted— religious toleration. That want was however common to them with any other sect of christians. It was the common vice or infelicity of the age, from which no religious communion was exempt. But let it be remember- ed that the Calvinistic city of Amsterdam was the first which practised religious liberty, and that a subdivision of Calvinists, the English independents, were the first who adopted its prin- ciples, and that ofthe three most famous seats of Calvinism.— I have S€, eft Catholic clergymen in their sacerdotal habits, in rhe struts 0f Geneva. I know that there is a Catholic Bishop ot Boston, and I observe with pride and delight that the city of Glasgow now contains the most beautiful Catholic church which has been erected in Great Britain sincc the reformation. Far be it from me to utter or to harbour a sentiment incotu sistent with the principles of a zealous protectant, and with the most determined opposition to the erroneous doctrines, and still more to the domineering spirit, of the church of Rome.— I was rather influence* 1- by zeal for th. honour of the Protestant Religion; and by exultation'that the stain of intolerance was so far effaced from her character. lint to return to my subject. For the eminence of this University in the mental and moral sciences,' I need only ap- peal to the three teachers of Ethics, who followed in immediate succession, Hutchl- sott, Smith, and Reid, and I think I may presume to say that various and unlike as their merits are, no succession of three teachers in any Ethical School can surpass them. I need say nothing of the two last of these celebrated men. They have been sufficiently described and honoured by my illustrious and reverend friend Mr. Stewart, who in his retirement enjoys the recollection of having breathed a purer and a warmer love of truth and virtue into more human minds' than any other teacher alire in the world. But though I have already occupied more time than I ought, I cannot refrain from saying a word of Dr. Ilutcheson, whose merits have some- what more faded in the recollection of an ungrateful posterity. To him. who was born in Ireland, belongs the merit of having awakened the speculative genius of Scotland from its lethargy, and of having, given to it that character and form which it has retained for a century, and by which it is known throughout Europe. Beautiful and original as " the theory of moral senti- ments" is, no intelligent reader can doubt that to tile writings of Hutcbeson we must ascrilie toe union of two such scarcely compatible sorts of eminence in Dr. Smith, as that of being the most eloquent moral philosopher as well as the greatest po- litical economist of his age. Let me be allowed to add that the life of Hutcheson, by Dr. Leechman, long Principal of this University ; a composition much less known than it de- serves to be, is in my opinion a model of panegyrical biography, breathing throughout the generous sentiments and liberal principles of Hutcheson himself, written with an elegance which often naturally and gracefully rises intt^ eloquence, and peculiarly distinguished by an easy and nativ « low of English diction, which includes the learned and laborious research ot some of our celebrated writers. I should dwell with pleasure on the extraordinary merits of my late learned friend . Mr. Millar, if the presence of bis pupils, the ornaments of the bar and the bench, did not present you with living proofs ofthe greatness of his powers and the happy influence ot' his mind. The progress of the day reminds us that it is time to conclude. I have thought it my duty to illustrate the good consequences of some of your institutions, and to hold up as example for imitation a few of those illustrious men who h< tve shed so much lustre on this ancient and flou- ri- hing - jeat of knowledge. I have now Only to repeat my thanks for the honour which you have conferred on me, and for the patient kindness with which you have listened to me. EXTUACTS FROM " SIR HARCOURT LEES ADDRESS, " TO TIIE " ORANGEMEN OF IRELAND, " On the Subject of tbe late Jesuitical and ludicrous attempt, " to charge these gallant and loyal Protestant subjects, with " having actually conspired to Murder the Marquis Welles- 4" ley. with an empty bottle, in the Theatre Royal, Dublin." [ Taken from the Antidote, Dublin Weekly Paper.] On the eve. Gentlemen, of leaving this part oFthe country for a short period to attend to my parochial duties in another, I cannot refrain from alluding to the Protestant theatrical Mag- num Bonnm plot, of Saturday night, to assassinate Lord Wellesley with ah empty flask bottle, & e. to knock out the teeth of Conyngham Plunkett. with the handle of a rattle because they would not permit King William to be decorated in his Orange breeches. This really flogs all the conspiracies I ever yet read of, except that Sanguinary Plot entered into by the Spinsters to drown Dick Twiss, by putting him at the bottom of a certain utensil for saying the Irish girls had thick legs. It was therefore reasonable to expect that a strong party spirit would exist in Dublin, at direct variance with the Popish spirit which lately has unfortunately been considered as tbe pink of the mode of Dublin Castle. The two great rivals of the day was an uncompromising heretic called Ilarcourt Lees, consistent and steady to his King and Creed, aud that accom- plished statesman and liberal advocate, Marquis Wellesley, tem- porizing as a Protestant, but firm as a rock to his party. Of course a political row was expected, and the worthy Papists determined ( and no blame to them) to make tbe most of it— Lees not caring one sixpence for the entire corps diplomatique of Pope, Apostates, and L > rd Lieutenant, went quietly to dine with his children, aud write heretic hexameters for the Dublin Weekly Register; while the Viceroy, surrounded by all the cortege'of a Court, and applauded by all the flatterers of the capital, went to receive the homage ofthe demagogues and and the plaudits of the fools ; of course he was sadly disap- pointed at his reception, and as this excellent man has been persuaded to believe, nearly murdered by the Orangemen— Lees drank his bottle of Sneyds, 1811, to the Glorious Me- moiv, and retired to bed at night, whilst his Excellency sang Patrick's Day in the morning with the national anthem, at the theatre, and got no rest at all. I understand the hisses of ail the Protestants were loud, and I am also informed general in most parts of tbe house, which I am happy to learn, because I consider a good hissing if well merited, to a veteran Statesman, by way of a Ilouser, as efficient an antidote against political drowsiness, as a shower bath would be to an old Dowager, or Maid of Honour, who had been stupifying her faculties fur months over a Cassino table. The Orangemen contemplated nothing farther than a few harmlc- s hisses— ami long and loud, my boys, may you continue them against every Protestant Advocate for the ex- tension of Political Power to Jesuits, to carry their murderous plans against our lives and properties into full effect! But the Papist's plot was the cream of the joke, for during the storm one of the hired Ribbonmen, sitting near the pit door, close to the orchestra. under hand, flung a bottle over the lights, against the curtain, never dreaming of'either breaking Lord Wellcsley's or Plunkett's heads at all ( indeed the latter no bottle could damage, not even a Scotch pint), but determined, under the villainous civ of Orange Assassination, to break up that powerful and loyal Institution, as well as freemasonry, altogther. This is the infernal object the Jesuits have at heart, my brave and cruelly insulted Protestants, and which I will prevent, or tbe four quarters ofthe empire will be yet fixed at one and the same time. The Itase has taken well you see ; Poperv, to set tbe example, firstcries out " An Address ! an attempt has been viaile by the bloody Orangemen to murder Lord Wellesley /" You will find now how all the despicable time- servers— Popish Aldermen, Protestant Apostates, and Corporate fo. ds in counties and cities, will hark in with the Jesuits ; mind the fellows wsJ who sign the Requisitions, you will discover them to consist of a few well- meaning nervous men, who fancy themselves attached to their King and Cons- titution, and who would butter the devil himself if they could get any thing for the basting. But the great body of Addresses will belong to the ranks of Popery and rebellion— the object is, I tell yoil, to run down the Orangemen by the charge of mur- der, and the Noble VV'ellejley is made the stalking- horse and laughing- stock of these villains, to destroy the finest institu- tion that this or any other country ever yet could boast of; nor among litem is there one individual that would not protect with his heart's blood, the illustrious brother of their adored and truly Protestant Wellington. Gentlemen, through the columns of your faithful and uncompromising guardian, the new Anti- dote, I take tbe opportunity, before [ retire to rest, to sub- mit my sentiments to the nation 011 this infamous but laughable conspiracy to murder with an old portieen bottle, the King's Representative, and to dislocate the jaw of his faithful and wise Attorney General with u watchman's rattle. When our venerated Viceroy h » s become a little better used to hisses, which he most assuredly will tie'subject to so long as he con- tinues to support Popery in Parliament, particularly since the developcment of the late truly murderous conspiracy framed by the Court of Rome, as disclosed by Mr. Plunkett, he will be inclined to treat as I do all charges brought against the Orangemen of wishing to assassinate him in the theatre.— When he has experienced * few of those conciliating and bloody attempts that I have done at the hands of the Romanists, he will be willing to urftnit that the object now is to impose upon his credulity, and to alsi 111 his apprehensions for the vilest party and factious purposes. I charge this excellent Nobleman to be upon his guard ; for I assure him, that a mine is ready to ex- plode in this country, vfliicli may really involve his own with the lives of thousands of his Majesty's most faithful subjects. He little knows what had been determined 011, even fifteen months ago, as respecting the King, had his Majesty remain- ed six weeks longer in Ireland ; and, if he will not believe me, let him consult the file of American Journals for Septem- ber, 1821, and in their columns he will read an article which will cause the blood to curdle in his veins, and must at length convince him that Mr. Plunket, although one of the most brilliant advocates that the bar of Ireland e%' er produced, yet as a Statesman, when compared with Sir Harcourt Lees, that he is a political infant in silken swaddling clothes. For that article asserted, " that the King had been assassinated in Dublin." Any further comments would be useless ; but should his Excellency require them, 1 refer him for the con- text, to the confidential correspondence carried on ( through sworn agents) between the dangerous and secret societies ofthe Church of Rome, in the north of England, and those now spreading rapidly over the entire of Ireland, & c. & c. I have only time left. Gentlemen, at present, to inform you, that the diabolical plot of Royal Murder and general Rebel- lion, was frustrated by the firmness, foresight, and opportune disclosures, of Your faithful and undoubted Friend aud Brother, IIARCOURT LEES. P. S. I wish that wise philosopher, the Lord Mayor; would exercise himself a little by trying to throw the bottie from the upper gallery, surrounded by a mlmber of people.

Thisr is a shameful and criminal act of Popish villauy, my dear Lord Mayor, and all your Addresses will uot clcar a certain indi- vidual from the suspicion of having assented to a scheme for overturning the Orange Institution of Ire! and, as the fore- runner of Popish Emancipation. Let Ministers now be cau- tious what they are about ; they will soon have a war on the Continent. I tell them ; for PUZZLE di Borgo has puzzled X. ord Wellington, or I uir. po'Statesman. His Grace was a- s fit to deal with these political swindlers a* a tailor would be to ride a fox- hunt. He ought to have been otherwise employed ( brave and honourable us he is) than in playing a platonic game at Blind Hooky with Maria Louisa. The moment I heard Wellington was to succeed my lamented friend, Lord Londonderry, I prophesied the result. On this account let Ministers prevent a civil war in Ireland. They know my re- medy to prevent it* ofa most vindictive and revengeful spirit. He had beetl punish- ed when at school, and, in revenge, contrived to get from his bed iu the night, and destroy the whole of the fruit trees and every plant and shrub in his master's garden. At another time having robbed a neighbour's garden, he was delected and punished ; when, in order to wreak his vengeance, he set fire to the house in the night, which was nearly destroyed, together J with its inmates. lie had adopted a plan to e- cape from his father's house in the nighttime, without detection, which was done hy means of a rope ladder, that he let down from his bed room window, and after effecting his robberies he used to re- turn to his room in the same way. Hartley had once before received sentence of death, and was not respited till within a few hours of the usual time of execution ; he was then sent to Botariy Bay, frotn whence he contrived to make his escape, and afterwards entered on board of one of his Majesty's ships iu the East Indies. Whilst at this station he was removed to the hospital on shore, at Bom- bay, on account of sickness ; but even iu this state he could not refrain from thieving. His practice was to scale the walls of the hospital in the evening and way- lay the natives, whom he contrived to rob by knocking them down with a short ebony stick, aud then seizing their turbans, in which tlit'ir wealth was usually deposited, he stole off unperceived, whilst his victims were left weltering in blood, which always followed his blows. Whilst on this station, a gentleman on board the ship missed a valuable box of pearls, and suspicion falling upon a native India, he was put on shore and dreadfully tortured ( his finger and toe nails being torn out) to make him confess. A few days before Hartley's execution, he confessed that he had been tbe thief, having stolen the pearls, and secreted them in a crevice in the ship's side, where they had slipped down to the bottom, aud be never could get at them again. Hartley wrote an account of this circumstance to the commander of the ship, who came to Maidstone immediately, and recognised Hartley as having been engaged as an officer's servant on board, and Hartley assured him that the pearls still remained in the place where he had secreted them, " Hartley acknowledged that he was an accomplice in the murder of Mr. Bird and his housekeeper, at Greenwich, for which murder Hussey was executed in 1818, but that neither himself nor Hussey were the actual murderers. Hartley ob- tained admission into the house by presenting a note at the door, when himself, with Hussey and another person, whom he named, . rushed into the house and shut the door. Hartley instantly ran up stairs to plunder the drawers, and whilst there he heard a loud crv for mercy. He went to the top ofthe stairs, and saw Hussey pull Mr. Bird's housekeeper to the floor, whilst struck her repeatedly wnh a hammer. Hartley ran down stairs, and saw Mr. Bird lying dead on his back. The sight so affected him that he immediately threw on the table two watches which he had secured, and ran out ofthe house, and never saw Ilussey rfterwards, nor had any share in the plunder. Happy would it have been had his hands always been as free from blood, as he confessed that he afterwards met a gentleman on the highway and shot him dead, after which he took from his person a watch and 1.. 7S. Hartley was also wit- ness to another scene of murder which occurred in one of his midnight robberies. Himself and a companion had entered the house ofa gentleman, who, being alarmed, seized a poker, and made towards Hartley, who snapped a pistol, which missed fire. The gentleman seized him by the collar and dragged him to the floor, when Hartley'^ companion plunged a knife iiito his heart, and he fell dead upon Hartley. Two ladies had followed the gentleman into the room, and at the horrid sight they instantly fainted, whilst Hartley and his companion made their escape. He has also frequently confessed that the murderer of Mrs. Donatty was the above mentioned , who he represented to be a most blood thirsty villain. " In one ofhis midnight excursions witli two ofhis compa- nions, he had a narrow escape of his life. They had packed up the principal part of the plate in the lower rooms ; when one ofhis companions, with horrid oaths, declared that be would proceed up stairs, in attempting which he was shot dead at the side of Hartley, who, with his other companion, made a hasty retreat. This circumstancejonly served to harden him in iniquity, as he acknowledged that he was totally devoid of fear or natural affection. Feelings of remorse were, however, a little awakened a few days before his trial, by an affectionate letter from a sister, imprisoned for debt, whom he had robbed of L. 200, by forging a power of attorney, by which he obtain- ed possession ofa legacy of L. 200 which had been bequeathed to her by a distant relation. " He looked forward to the time of his execution with asto- nishing coolness— and, in ordtfr that he might have the day continually before him, he had drawn a circle on paper, to form a kind of dial, with an index pointing to the number of days yet remaining, aud this index he moved daily as the days of life decreased. This monitor he fastened against the wall of his cell, where it was constantly in view. He was but twenty- five years of age, and about five feet six inches high." LAW INTELLIGENCE. i • EXECUTION. On Thursday morning, the 2d instant, Robert Hartley was executed on Peneiiden- heath, near Maidstone, pursuant to his sentence at the special jail delivery holden at Maidstone, for the county of Kent, the 16th December last, for wilfully stabbing Captain Owen, ofthe Bellerephon convict ship, lying at Sheerness, on the 2<} th of August last, where the prisoner was confined as a transport. From the time ofhis condemnation to Wednesday evening last, the unhappy man behaved in the most hardened and impenitent manner, stating his disbelief of a future state, and disregarding the pious exhortations of the Rev. Mr. Winter, chaplain to the jail. On Sunday last, one of the turnkeys asked him if he was not cold : he said ** No ; but I shall be a d d sight colder this night week, or else hotter ; I don't know which yet. but I will come back and let you know." On Monday he said, " If I was to be set at liberty to- nrght, I should do sotttethiug before morning to get In again." In the evening, Mr. Winter was with him from six till half past eight o'clock, when he, for the first time, join- ed in prayer, and consented to receive the sacrament in the morning. The worthy chaplain visited him agam at eight o'clock on Thursday morning, when he said he had slept very well till about three o'clock-, from which time he x*- as much harassed with shocking dreams. He received the sacrament, and appeared much affected : but, upon being asked by Mr. Winter whether, if he was drselrarged, he should lead an honest life, he replied, 44 No, he should go on the same way again." On coming to the brow on the heath, where the gallows first appeared to view, he looked towards it and smiled ; on arriv- ing at the fatal spot, the worthy chaplain read a very impressive and appropriate prayer, to which the unhappy man appeared to pay. great attention ; at the conclusion of their devotions he ascended the scaffold and turned to the executioner, and, whilst he was putting the rope round the beam, said, Do not be long about it— let me feel what drop you Have given me."— He then lent forward to try the length of the rope; and said, That will do— the knot is too much under my jaw." The executioner moved it towards his chin ; when he said, " It is now too much under my chin." When the rope was adjusted, he said, " Put on the cap now. ' When drawn over his face, he said, '*' Let me draw it off my mouth." When he had re- moved the cap he said with a loud voice—" Lord Jesus, into thy hands I commit my spirit— pray let this be a warning to you all— I wish you alia happy new year." He was then launched into eternity : he was much convulsed, and struggled for ten minutes after the drop fell. His body, after hanging the usual time, was taken down and buried iu Maidstone burial- ground. CONFESSION OF HARTLEY. It will be seen by the following particulars which have since transpired, that he has made confessions which may be the means of bringing to justice the long- sought murderers both of Mrs. Donatty and Mr. Bird and his housekeeper, at Green- wich. The ruthless deeds of this man appear to have rivalled even those of the notorious Abershaw, whose body was stolen from the gibbet on which it hung on Wimbledon Common. " Some days before his execution Hartly confessed to the Rev. Mr. Winter having been concerned in upwards of two hundred burglaries in Kent, Essex Surrey, Middlesex, Hamp- shire, Hertfordshire, Yorkshire, Westmorland, Durham, Lin- coln, and Norfolk. lie had been confined in sixteen different prisons, besides undergoing several examinations at the differ- ent police- offices ; and had gone by the following names— Robert Stainton, Alexander Koinbollen, George Grimes, Robert Wood, William Smith, George Ordggington, and Robert Hartley. " Hartley's father formerly kept an inn ( Sir John Falstaff), at Hull, in Yorkshire. He was put to school in that neigh- bourhood, but his conduct at school was so marked with depra- vity, and so continually did he play the truant, that he was dismissed as unmanageable. He then, although only nine years of age, began with pilfering and robbing gardens and orchards, till at length his friends were obliged to send him to sea. He soon contrived to run away from the vessel in which he had been placed, and having regained the land, pursued his old habits, and got connected with many of the principal thieves in London, with whom he commenced business regularly as a housebreaker, which was almost always his line of robbery. 44 liar. ley acknowledged that from his earliest days he was JURY COURT; Jan. 10. j Friday came on in this Court, before the Lord Chief Com- missioner, Lord Pitmilly, and a respectable Jury, an action of damages for libel, at the instance of William Fraser Tvtler, Esq. of Balnuin, Sheriff Depute and Vice- Lieutenant of In- verness- shire, against Lachlan Mackintosh, Esq. of Raigmore. The damages were laid at 50001. The libel was contained in various letters, quoted in the issues, written by the defender to Col. F. W. G rant, the Lord Lieutenant of Inverness- shire, and the Right Hon. Charles Grant, M. P. imputing to the pursuer actions inconsistent with his station and duty ; such as appointing improper persons, or recommending persons of abandoned character to be Justices of Peace, and insinuating that the pursuer was a man of abandoned principles, and un- worthy of public trust, & c. The case was opened hy Mr. Moncreifffor the pursuer, who called several witnesses, anion.' whom were Colonel Francis William Grant. Charles Grant, Esq. senior, and the Right Hon. Charles Grant. Mr. Jef- frey spoke for the defence, for nearly three hours. The case was summed up by the Lord Chief Commissioner, aud the Jury, after a short consultation, returned with a verdict for the pursuer— Damages, 8001. Counsel for the pursuer.

This da)', Peter Donaldson, alias James M'Don- aid, was indicted for having, in the month of Septem- ber last, broken into the house ot' Mrs. Ancliie, Mer chant Street, Edinburgh, and stolen several articles of wearing apparel. The prisoner pled guilty ; and the libel having been restricted to an arbitrarv punishment, lie was sentenced to 18 months' confinement in Bride- well. Janet Brodie, alias Elizabeth Levock, was indicted for having, between the term of Martinmas 1821, and that of Whitsunday ] 8' 22, stolen from the house of her master, Mr. Mitchell, residing at Warriston Crescent, a quantity of table cloths, napkins, and other articles. After the examination of witnesses, the Jury returned an unanimous verdict of guilty, and she was" sentenced to 7 vears' transportation. Thursday, James Robb was put to the Bar, charged with stealing four highland stots frotr, tlie Fir Park of Touchadam, Stirlingshire, the property of William Murray, Esq. on the 1st of October 1818, to which the prisoner pleaded guilty. The Jury accordingly found the prisoner guilty in terms of his own confes- sion, aud he was sentenced to 14 years' transportation. Friday, James Robertson, Robert Simpson, and William Mactaggart, were indicted for having, upon the 14th September last, in Church Street, Inverness, robbed Angus Fraser, porter to the Caledonian Coach, of a trunk belonging to Mr. William Cameron in Rothtemureus, containing shirts, neckcloths, Stockings, and shaving utensils; also promissory- notes to the amount of 1,6+ 21. odds, two extracts of a bond for 2,8001. and a number of tax- papers ; as also, for as- saulting, time and place foresaid, John Fraser, in In- verness, with intent to rob him of a bag containing sundry articles belonging to Dr. Herbert Taylor of Utonetcr. The panels having pleaded not guilty, the ordinary interlocutor of relevancy was pronounced, after which their declarations were proved and read. Mr. Cameron deponed, that on the day libelled, he arrived about 10 o'clock in the evening, in the Cale- donian Coach, at Bennet's Inn, Church Street, Inver- ness ; that all the beds of the Inn being occupied, he, along with Dr. Taylor, took tip his residence at Mr. Cant's lodgings in the same street; that soon there- after he was informed of tlie robbery of his trunk ; that lie, accompanied by others, proceeded to make a search in order to recover it ; and for that purpose he went to the house of one Bernard Wood, which is upon the sliorc ; that, after returning, Mr. Cant, brought him his trunk, which was broken open, and its whole contents, excepting the tax- papers and the extracts of the bond, abstracted. Aligns Fraser deponed, that on the night libelled, he was desired bv the guard of the coach to carry Mr. Cameron's trunk, and Dr. Taylor's bag to Cant's lodg- ings ; that while in the lobbv of the Inn, he observed the panel Simpson within the lobbv, and Robertson at the door; that the former offered him his assistance, which he declined ; that meeting John Eraser in the street, he gave him the bag to carrv; that they rested at Mr. Tait's shop, when Simpson and Robertson again appeared, and tendered their assistance, which was de- clined as formerly ; that on reaching the court leading to Mr. Cant's, the trunk was pulled off his shoulders with such violence as to bring him to the ground ; that the force applied was continued after his endeavours to keep hold of the trunk, round the handle of which lie contracted his hand more firnilv when he discovered the attempt to deprive him of it; that on rising, he was held fast bv Robertson ; and at that time he saw Simpson running awav with the trunk, and heard hint crying,' " come awav ; we've got the spoil;'' that Robertson' then stepped aside, as if to take the baa; from Joint Eraser; when the witness pursued Simpson, but, ou second thoughts, he returned and secured Robertson ; that Robertson got out of his hands ; but, on witness raising the cry of murder, he was immediately laid hold of by the guard of the coach, and conveyed to Bennet's, where witness identified hint. John Fraser corroborated the preceding witness, with those differences; that Mactaggart was with the other panels when they accosted Angus Fraser at Tail's shop ; that he was also present at the robbery, and received the trunk from Simpson ; that he noticed Angus Fraser on the ground ; and that the attempt made upon the bag by Robertson immediately preceded the robberv of the trunk. ( The witness who at first gave his evidence in English, which he seemed to understand very imper- fectly, afterward* delivered it in Gallic, which was in- terpreted by Mr. Cameron.) The remainder of the evidence went to shew, that about an hour after the robbery, Mr. Cant and others went to Bernard Wood's,, when Mr. Cant observed Simpson walking about the floor with only ins trowsers on ; but upon the party getting admission, lie was found in his bed apparently asleep ; and at that time he stated, he had been in bed since nine o'clock ; that when the party were at Wood's door, Mactaggart came u;> dressed in soldier's clothes, but wanting the stock and waistcoat, though, according to his own declaration, he had been dressed the previous part of the eventnir in plain clothes ; that on his being asked to give his assist- ance, he said that he would go and procure his drum- mer, but immediately ran awav up a lane, thence across the main street, and thence up another lane, where the party who pursued him heard a crash, and at the head of it found Mr. Cameron's trunk lying broken open; that the panels, contrary to the tenor of their own de- clarations, knew each other; and, in particular, that Robertson and Simpson were drinking together that evening, immediately before the arrival of the coach. The only " evidence in exculpation was that of a cor* poral and private of the first regiment of foot ( to which regiment Mactaggart belongs,) who deponed that, for any thing ever they heard, M'actaggart bore a good character ; that he was stationed at Inverness on the re- cruiting service, and that none but men of good char- acter are employed in that service. The Lord Advocate, in addressing the Jury, aban- doned the charge of assault upon John Eraser, with at- tempt to rob, and proceeded to comment upon the evi- dence as it affected each of the prisoners. The Counsel for the panels insisted, that, according to tbe evidence, there was not that evidence employed which constituted robbery ; but at all events, he con- tended, the charges were uot brought, home sufficiently to either of his clients. The Lord Justice Clerk, in charging the Jury, ob- served, that the facts sworn to by the two Erasers, if believed by the Jury, certainly amounted to the crime of robbery. This was the opinion not of himself alone, but of his brothers Lords Gillies and Meadowbauk. His Lordship proceeded to sum up the evidence with his usual impartiality ; in the course of which he observed, that in his opinion the Jury would go too far were they to commit Mactaggart. His Lordship concluded the summing up about five, o'clock, when the Jury were directed to retnrn their verdict in writing next morning ( Saturday) at 10 o'clock. On Saturday morning the Jury returned their verdict, finding, by a plurality of voices, Robertson and Simpson guilty ; and,' unanimously the libel not proven against Mactaggart ; and alsu unanimously and earnestly re- commended the two former to mercy. The Court, in respect of the verdict, assoilzied Matf- taggart, and adjudged Robertson and Simpson to be executed at Inverness on the 21st February next. Simpson, on being removed, addressed the Court in nearly the following words :—" My Lords, I am not guilty, I know I cannot make you believe me, but yet it is the case. I was with Robertson on the night before the robbery. I saw the robbery, and Angus. Fraeer ob- served me standing at the jail, but I had nohand in it as I shall answer to God.'' Simpson, one of the prisoners, was confined in Dum- fries Jail for some twite when Haggsrt murdered the turnkey, and was a material witness on the trial of that young man, having seen him commit the horrid deed. The Court then proceeded to the trial of Charles M'Lafew, Thomas Grierson, aud James M'Ewan, ac- cused of two, separate acts of theft and housebreaking; first of having, on the Sth ' or 9th of September, broke into the house of Thomas liiddcll, Esq. \ V. S. at New- ingtoi!, and abstracted a wooden box, and various va- luable articles of furniture, and farther of bavin", on th ® I 1 th or 12th December last, entered the house of Col. Munro, in George's Square, and stolen various articles of furniture aud apparel. The prisoners pleaded Not Guilty. After the examination of witnesses, the Lord Advo- cate addressed the Jury for the Crown. lie regretted he could not restrict the libel, in consequeni e of the de- plorable frequency of the crime. He then entered at considerable length into the evidence, and concluded bv demanding awrd'ict of guilty against all the pannels, at least on the first charge. Mr. Donald was then heard in defence of M'Larcn and Grierson, who confined himself chiefly to the testi- mony of the witnesses in whose possession the stolen goods had been found, and submitted that, on account of prevarication and concealment, for which they had all received the reprobation of the Court, no credit was due- to their statements. Mr. Alexander M'Neill, for the pannel M'Ewan, took: a general review of the whole evidence ; and after warn- ing the Jury, in considering the case of this pannel, to. place the declaration of M'Laren, and the evidence of the- second charge, which had been abandoned by the Lor. i Advocate, entirely out of view, lie submitted, 1st, that there was no sufficient evidence of the time at which the- housebreaking had been committed, so as to connect the- appearance of the panncls at the house of Mr. Riddell, with the crime charged ; 2d, That there was no evidence- to establish the identity of the goods seen by the witness, Louie, and his wife, as the same with those which had been abstracted from the house of Mr. Riddell ; and in conclusion, strongly urged the Jury to beware ' ofgiving way to mere suspiciorf, however strong, beariivr in mind the melancholy assurance of the Learned Lord" that an unfavourable verdict would necessarily lead to the un- timely end of the miserable boys now in their charge. The evidence was then summed up at great length bv tlie Lord Justice Clerk. The Jurv, nfte" consultfno- f„' r a few minutes, without leaving the box, returned a% a. diet, unanimously finding the first charge of housebreak- ing and theft Proven as libelled, and the latter Not Proven ; but also unanimously recommended M'Ewan to the mercy of the Court on account of his youth. The Lord Justice Clerk, in pronouncing sentence, said it was absolutely necessary in their case to set an awful example to the youths who were instigated to these crimes bv elder people, in order to screen themselves from punishment. He cautioned M'Laren and Grier- s'on against entertaining any hopes of mercv. His Lordship then sentenced the prisoners to be executed 011 Wednesday, 12th February, between the hours of eight and ten in the morning. During the whole trial the prisoners behaved them- selves with perfect propriety, and with seeming intel- ligence of what was going 011. They frequently made observations 011 the testimony of the different witnesses to their Counsel. Grierson alone was moved to tears on receiving sentence. Thev all respectfully bowed to the Court on retiring. M'Laren and M'Ewan are fine looking bovs. M'Laren is about 14, and the other two about 13 yenis of age.

PARIS, January 6.—- The article ofthe Qltotidienne, ' which seems to 11s to deserve most attention, is that iu which it proclaims the benefits for which we are, and shall be indebted to Russia. Its enthusiasm is great 011 j this subject, and induces it even to quote Voltaire, who was supposed to be banished from the office ofthe Quofi- dienne, as well as froiii the book- stalls. The Quoti- dleilne, actually prints at length a whole verse of Vol- t. iire— '• Cost ( lu Nurd aujnrd'hui que nous vient la lumiere." " This piece of flattery," says the Quolidienne, has now become a truth ; Europe has 110 longer to fear an invasion from the Tartars; she has need of the protec- tion ofthe Tartars against herself. To the Cossacks be- longs the task of dissipating the darkness which surrounds us, and of converting us to reason." Some Officers have started doubts as to their obliga- tion to demand the authority of the Ministry of War when they are desirous of marrying. The Ministry have referred to the decision of the Council of State, which declares that they cannot contract marriage without such previous consent. Madame the Duchess de Berri was present yesterday at a soiree which his Serene Highness the Due d'Orleans gave to Prince Leopold of Saxe Coburg. Thanks to lithography, we shall soon have a complete collection of all the personages, whether at Madrid, at Perpignan, or at Toulouse, whose names Fame trum- pets. forth.

This old man is aged 70, and still sppcars full of energy It is affirmed that the likeness is perfect. An extraordinary courier arrived on Saturday, at the Spanish Embassy; he was the bearer of important in- structions for his Catholic Majesty's Ambassador at the British Court. Yesterday morning, M. the Duke de San Lorenzo sent off dispatches for London. The choice for the Embassy to England is now be- tween M. the Prince de Polignac and M. the Duke de Fitz- James. Whichsoever of these two personages may be selected bv the Government for this important mission, the political views ofthe Ministry cannot lose a support. UAYONNE, Dec. 31.— The Regency appears to have abandoned the project of settling at Bayonne. Charles O'Donnel is still at the head of some bands, but he avoids every thing like an engagement, and his friends attribute this inactivity to political motives, of which they pretend that the French Authorities are iu the secret. The Ge- neral of the Franciscans arrived two days ago from Ma- drid at Bayonne, where he appears to be likely to stay some time. M. the Baron de Merle, Lieutenant ofthe 1 particulars if it'acceded to them, and 011 the other hand, King hastened to pay him a visit, and he also met with a ' the Cabinet of St. Petersburgh cannot consent to the gracious reception from M. the General Autichamp.

The failure of this attempt at scJurtio ought surely to undeceive those persons who fattguj themselves to prove that the Constitutional system adopt ed iu Spain is contrary to the genei'al wish ofthe 11a tion, and that the most distinguished men of all class are lorded over bv a faction composed of the very dre of the rabble. Any man of the most moderate undo standing, who might be invited to put himself forwi in the insurrection, must have foreseen that one of tj things would be his fate— either to live abhorred, detq ; ed, and in continual terror in his country, if, which j next to impossible, the enterprise should have a suee ' ful issue; or to be condemned to perpetual exile, and, j despised in a foreign land. Thus Eroles and O'Do j are to be classed, not only as traitors, but as block!

From all quarters of'the capital, the throng to contemplate this unexpected exhibition, sentence ( jaftaj placed above the head of thi powerful man, states that he abused, in the mosi nal manner, the unlimited confidence which his had placed in him. The official recital of his tragical end shews t favourite, unlike others, did not want personal c Supported by 40 friends, or devoted servants, i to defend himself against the Capidgibachis, whop stnted themselves to demand his head. Haleb and his trusty defenders, after a long resistance, were over- powered by numbers, and cut to pieces. But the crisis is far from its term ; the Janissaries, in- furiated at their triumph, demand that all the public of- fices shall be filled by their creatures. The Sultan recent- ly went, in the most cautious incognito, to the residence oi' the new Grand Vizier, probably, to ask his advice. The interview lasted three quarters of an hour, and was followed by the dismissal of numerous dignitaries of all ranks. This Grand Vizier is himself only a vulgar fana- tical Janissary, therefore the worst may be expected.— The Sultan merely reigns nominally. The death of Chourschid Pacha is also officially an- nounced ; but it is not stated whether it has been ef- fected by suicide, which all here believe to have been the case. He is replaced in the command of the Morea by Teheleddin, Pacha of Bosnia, and a creature of the Janissaries. Since the revolution operated in the Ministry, all communication with the Christian Ambassadors had ceas- ed. Lord Strangford will find things much changed on his return. AUGSBURG, Dec. 28 It was lately supposed that in case of war between Russia and Turkey, Austria would remain neutral. A different opinion is now en- tertained ; an offensive and defensive alliance between Russia, Austria, and Prussia, having been concluded at Troppau, bv which the two Imperial Courts engag- ed to hold 60,000 men ready for their mutual aid, and Prussia 30,000. In case of war it is thonght the Prus- sian contingent would go into Poland, and the Austrian down the Danube to the frontiers of Turkey. Now, it is difficult to hope that Russia and the Porte will agree : there are two difficulties ; one to bring the Porte to enter on the proposed negociatlon, the second to recon- cile the pretensions of the two Powers, if the conferences should take place. The Porte persists in asserting, that it is on a level with all the Christian Powers— that Russia cannot give a solid reason for withdrawing her Ambassador, or for refusing to send another, which would be the best proof of her pacific dispositions. In the last Note delivered by the Reis Effendi to Count Lutzow and Lord Strang- ford, it was positively declared that the Porte would never consent to send an Envoy to the frontiers, since it had nothing new to negociate with Russia, and the pre- servation of peace depended on the faithful execution of subsisting Treaties, which the Porte would faithfully observe It is not likely that the Military Divan will adopt a more pacific resolution, or that M. Ottenfels, however skilled in the Turkish language, will be able to ; to obtain what was refused to his predecessor. The pretensions of Russia are such, that the Turkish Government, must change its political system in many drcssen to Sut— For some time past I have been urged to publish a statement ofthe circumstances which accompanied my arrest, imprisonment, and liberation; some surprise has been ex- pressed at my delaying to do so. I had determined upon this step immediately 011 my return to my country, and it was, in- deed, due to the kind and generous sympathy which has been expressed towards ine, and in exciting which you had so large a share. It was, however, suggested to me by . Air. " Canning, that any premature discussion might possibly embarrass the British Government, and I was certainly disposed to allow the Cabinet of the Thuilleries ap opportunity of repairing the ac- knowledged outrages of which I had been the victim.

On the night mentioned, however, his Majesty was again attacked by the gout, accompanied with much pain ; and so severe has been the visitation, that his Majesty ever since has been con- fined to his bed. Hopes are entertained, however, that the attack will not prove of long duration. No invita- tions have been issued from the Pavilion since Tuesday. Prince Leopold of Saxe- Coburg took a family dinner with the King of France, at the Palace of the Tuilcries, on Saturday the 4th ult. Lord Fitzroy Somerset sailed on Wednesday from Dover, on his mission to Madrid, via Paris. It appears that the Athanasian Creed was not read or sung in his Majesty's presence in the Palace Chapel 011 Christmas Day. It must be imagined that the omission was intentional; and if so, as the King is the head of the Church, we hope it may be regarded as a prelude to the expulsion of that, to use the mildest term, uncharit- able Creed from our usual Church service.— Brighton Chronidc.

DONATTY— Yesterday morning a long private examination took place at the public office, Bow Street, before Sir R. Birnie, of some parties who ha ve been apprehended by Vickery, the officer, 011 sus- picion of being the murderers of the late Mrs. Donattv. The parties in custody are of quite a different connection from any of those who have hitherto been taken, or even suspected, and there is every reason to believe that the guilty is at length in custody, who was committed for farther examination bv Sir 11. Birnie. TWELFTH NIGHT— The Marquis of Huntly en- tertained a gay party 011 Monday at Kimbolton Castle, the venerable seat of the Duke of Manchester; a dinner was given to a large party in the evening, a juvenile circle drew King and Queen with great delight. Miss Byrne, the singer, has entered the holy state of matrimony with a namesake of her own. Mr. and Mrs. Byrne have taken the Belfast theatre. against :.! i tiie persons charged with this infamous con- spiracy, on as early a dav as possible in the next term." Mr. Justice Moore then stated, that he hjtd taken a rapid view of the informations s. vorn against the prison- ers, and he felt 110 hesitation in Saving, that if the evi- dence were believed, it fully went to establish the facts ofa conspiracy being formed to create a riot, and of it occurring in consequence; for himself he must say,- that his astonishment was so great at the finding of Jury, that were he alone, and the law officers ofthe crown, not the prosecutor, he would have felt it his duty, to have ques- tioned them as to their reasons for Coming to such an extraordinary decision. Such a course had been adopt- ed in other cases bv great and eminent men; The infor- mations, as he before Said, contained such a chain of evidence, that if believed, the bills must have been found. He lamented greatly that the conscience of the Grand Jury did not allow them to have the business brought to a public investigation ; and he felt convinced there was not a good man in the country, no matter to what party he belonged, who did not wish to have it probed to the bottom. It was then ordered, that Mr. Forbes be bailed, him- self in £ 1000, and two sureties in £ 500 each, to abide the result ofa criminal information to be filed against him by the Attorney- General, in the Court of King's Bench, in the next term ; and the other persons to find bail, themselves in £ 200 and two sureties in £ 100 each for the same purpose. Bail was instantly tendered for Mr. Forbes in Court, but the Attorney- General stated, that twentv- four hours' notice must be served on the Crown solicitors.

On Friday night last, the mail coach from Dublin to Belfast, when about 14 miles on the road from Dublin, at a place called Ashburnam, was beset by a banditti of sixteen in number, who, having previously blocked up the road, attacked the coach, robbed all the passengers in it, and carried off the Drogheda bag, which seems to have been their chief object, as a great market was to be held at that place in a day or two after ; they no doubt conceived it contained much money. The loss thus sus- tained is not yet known. The bankers' parcel for Belfast being seemed in an unusual part of the coach, fortunately escaped. One ofthe guards, we understand, is danger- ously wounded. They carried away the arms of the guards, and, besides other booty, got five watches, one of thein gold, worth 60 guineas, and about £ 75 in dollars. The passengers were ordered out of the coach, and made to kneel on the road, where they were rifled of every thing. One gentleman concealed a few notes in the sleeve of his coat. The guard who was wounded received four shots ; the other guard was slight- ly wounded. . MARKETS, SFC. AVERAGE PRICES OF CORN.

There can, we may rest as- sured, be but one stns. ver to this note, namely, an ab- solute rejection of all foreign interference in the internal affairs of Spain. The French Ministers must certainly be aware, or we cannot give them much credit for pene- tration, that no other answer can be expccted ; thev must have already settled what course they are to pursue in reference to this answer ; and as to waiting for it, as if it could make any alteration in the state of affairs, this appears to be either an apology for tlieir wavering policy, or downright affectation without any apparent object. Advices from Bayonne state, that the Colonel, the Lieutenant- Colonel, and sixteen Officers of the 38th Regiment of the line, have been dismissed, as also the Brigade- Major ofthe 37th. The Bayonne Papers also contain intelligence from Madrid, by which it appears ed to several years'imprisonment for having joined in secret association, the remainder of their punishment, and at the same time declared' them admissible to public offices, from which tlieir sentences excluded them. LEGHORN, Dec. 19.— The affairs Of the Porte are going on badly in Asia. Bassora is occupied bv the Per- sians, and the communications of the Turkish army with Bagdad intercepted, so that the speedy capture of this fortress is expected. The Persian army has received large reinforcements, while the Turks have suffered much from desertions ; but what augments the embarrassments of the latter, is the defection of the Pacha ofDamas.— He has burnt Saint John d'Aere, but has not made him- self as yet master of the fortress. It is said he has con- cluded a secret treaty with the Persian chiefs, who arc the possession of Syria, conduct of this Pacha is j said to have guaranteed to him t i independent ofthe Porte.

COMMISSION COURT, JAN. 3. Mr. D RISCOLL, K. C. addressed the Court, on be- half of the prisoners Henry Handwich and George Gra- ham, for whom he was retained. He stated that bills of indictment, continuing two distinct charges, had been sent to the grand jury, one of which tlic- y ignored alto- gether, and the other they found in such a manner as to make it a nullity in point of law. As there was, there- fore, no charge ineffect against. them, he moved that their Lordships would forthwith order them to be discharged. Mr. 11. JOHNSTON, K. C. followed Mr. Driscoll on the part of Mr Forbes. He stated the prisoner was not apprehended until severAl days after the riot. He did not fly from justice, but was found at his ordinary avocations.

On tbe 28th, the Quinta, or drawing for the recruits which Madrid, according to the new law, lias to furnish to the armv, took place, and the business is stated to have been conducted with the greatest order and tranquillity. The Espectador ternaries, that the manner in which this measure, involving a sacrifice at all times painful, has been carried into effect, " particular- ly in a place which the odious distinctions of despotism bad hitherto exempted from it, is a proof of the spirit of liberty which prevails, and a complete refutation of the journalists of the Seine, which represent the capital of Spain as a prey to all the horrors of anarchy." ' In an article on the success of the military operations in Catalonia, the Universal has the following observa- tion ; " When the materials for fomenting the civil war which lias distracted some provinces of Spain were in preparation, it is well known that the promoters of the rebellion made overtures to some of our officers of dis- tinction, in the hope that they would lend their names ' to give credit to the enterprise. However, as to induce the acceptance of such offers, it was necessary'they should be addressed to men who, besides being evil- dis- posed or hostile to the new institutions, should also be absolute fools, it has happened that in the whole Spanish army not more than two or three persons of any degree of reputation have been seduced by the cajoling promises of Egypt, who had received orders to send troops to Jaffa to compell him to submit, has not obeyed, which has irritated the Porte against him.

She brings intelligence that a most violent storm lias done con- siderable damage to the shipping, and particularly to his Majesty's ships of war then lying in the harbour. The lightning appears to have been very destructive in ita effects. On this occasion the Chanticleer lost her main- topmast, and the Medina one of her men. The Pros- pero, Malta packet, also fost both her lower masts.—•' The whole'of these accidents were occasioned by the effects of the lightning in this dreadful storm. EAST INDIA SHIPPING.

Upwards of 430 Noblemen and Gentlemen were present, but the room not being large enough to contain them, about fifty dined iu an adjoining apartment, and were accommodated in tlie large room after the cloth was re- moved.

IT was our intention, in this day's paper, to have offered some additional observations upon the prevailing distress— and to oiler some reasons why we think the County Meetings in England justified in calling for a modification of the national debt; but a document that reached us on Thursday evening, iu the form of a Circu- lar or Manifesto from the Holy Allies, declaratory of their intentions towards Spain, demands our immediate attention. The distresses of our country are of no fugi- tive nature, and we fear we shall have but too many opportunities of recurring to the subject ; hut as the world has never yet seen such a production as the Mani- festo to which we allude, we would hope that it shall re- main unique— that none but itself can be its parallel. Never was tbe jus dioinum of Kings more f'ullv asserted, and never were mankind more grossly insulted, by being told that they are merely made for their Rulers, and have not sufficient information and judgment to discrimi- nate between what is good and what is bad in political institutions. All must recollect, the attempt lately made to ameliorate the situation of the kingdom of Naples by a free Constitution, the solemn oath ofthe Kmgtoroain- Iticir sepa conn ly. hi. ces of the pr a gene in fi an asse cite i If'evej alien in wl Spain " c so ma man affai the Ion da> eve colt is rt dest be d the T1 the cal with lr. ost i unqun army power called ft. establis witii'. It is nl have been^ WBHP^ Snin^ iiiisrobvious improve- ment of the constitution, nor would any thing resembling civil war have taken place in the Peninsula, had not the instigators of insurrection been set in motion by that Very alliancewhich now affects todeplore its consequences. It is a transgression of eternal laws is it, to restrain a weak and wicked Prince from doing what he pleases against the interests of'the state over which he presides ' i A violation of the moral order of the world to assert, that free men have a right to equal laws I Very well— but why do not these Roval Logicians illustrate their reasoning bv examples. If reformation in the political institutions of a state be fraught with consequences so fatal, how comes it that the United States of America, adopting nearly half a century since a form of Govern- ments purely republican, have experienced no inconveni- ence from the want of a Crown, Coronets, Mitres, or Inquisitors? In their widely extended Empire, flou- rishing and dailv acquiring strength, crime is less frequent than in anv nation of Europe, no anarchv prevails, but a virtuous and enlightened people conduct their i; ffairs with the greatest propriety, as well as economy. They intermeddle with the Constitution of no other Govern- ment— but if the Holy Allies threaten to deprive them of their arms, as with them they may threaten the repose of the world— for such is the language they hold to Spain — we have no doubt of their receiving the celebrated laconic answer— come and take them. The purport of the Manifesto is simply this— that there is no prosperity or repose for Europe unless under the rule of absolute despotism— that political liberty is an evil— and that to seek it is not consistent with the will ofthe Deity, or the Welfare of Mankind. It is dis tinguished throughout by hypocjrisy— but hypocrisy ill disguised. Let the reader take as an example its con- clusion : £ 10 10 0 The Treasurer of tlie General Institution for the Education f the Deaf and Dumb, lias lately received the following De- lations in aid of the Funds, viz. : — Friend V ihe Institution, per Alexander Low, E- q. ines Gamtnel, Esq. of Countesswells, thud Donation,. - Falconer.

SHIRE SALT.— In this country, it has been for ears customary to use the . salt manufactured from sea nd to consider the Foreign Bay Sa ts- from St. Ubes, in, & c. as ^ preferable to the Cheshire Native Salt.— ict. ire has been continued owing to the great amount of duty on the English salt.

" No secret plan— no ambition— no calculation of their own interest was concerned in their resolution to oppose resistance to the revolution, to prevent the disor- ders, the scourges, the crimes, which it desiredxo bring upon all Italy— to restore peace and order in that coun- try— to afford to the legitimate Governments the protec- tion to which they had a claim— such alone were the thoughts and exertions of the Sovereigns." That the adoption ofthe free Constitution in Naples occasioned or threatened disorders or crimes is altogether false ; the people, including the army, were decidedly in favour of the adoption of that constitution, although the soldiefs, betrayed and disorganised, made no opposition to the occupation of their country by foreign troops, and the restoration of despotism. " At the moment, sav they, that the military insurrections in Naples and Turin yield- ed, at the approach of a regular jorce, a firebrand of the name of future generations. May they he all pe trated with the great truth, that the power confided to their hands is a sacred trust, for which they are accountable to the people, and to their posterity, and they expose themselves to a serious responsibility when they fall into errors, or listen to Counsels which would sooner or later deprive them ol'the pos- sibility of protecting their subjects from the ruin which they had themselves prepared for them. The Monarchs have the confidence that they shall every where find true Allies in those who are invested with the supreme authority, under whatever formsit. may be— Allies who do homage not tneieiy to the letter and the positive precepts of the conventions which form Ihe basis of the present European systeci, hut also to their spirit anil principles ; and they flatter themselves that the words here spoken, will be received as & new confirmation of their firm and unalterable resolution to consecrate all the means entrusted to them hy Providence, to promote tile welfare of Europe." Well may the Editor of the Morning Chronicle say, that the reasoning of these barbarians is not to be fear- ed, but their bayonets. We have, however, the satis- faction of knowing, that many of their subjects enter- tain better sentiments.

The breaking out ofthe same evil, in so many different points, did everywhere, though under various pretexts, yet accompanied by the same forms and the same language, too evidently betray the common focus from which it proceeded." But we are told, " the Monarchs resolved to repel the Maxim of Rebellion, in whatever place and under whatever form it might shew itself, immediately pronounced their unani- mous sentence of disapprobation upon it. Devoted with unceasing attention to the object of their common cares, they witlistood every consideration that might have led them aside from their truth ; but at the same time they followed the voice of their conscience and a sacred duty, and spoke for the cause of humanity ill favour of the vic- tims of an enterprise equally rash and criminal." Thus do these Holy Allies characterize the, gallant efforts of the Greeks to recover their long lost liberties, efforts that have excited the admiration, and called forth the ap- j plause of the civilized world. Why would thev not quietly remain slaves to the most infamous and detestable despotism on earth ? Why not continue to submit tlieit lives and properties to the arbitrary will of their oppres- sors, and allow their wives and daughters to be carried away at their pleasure for the basest purposes ? Their efforts endanger the repose into which Lord CASTLE- REAGII had lulled Europe by bis consummate diplomatic skill, and nobody knows what may b? the consequence. " Very annoying! so it is." Now for Spain. " Spain now endures the fall which awaits all States that are so unfortunate as to seek what is good in a way in which it never cau be found. It passes through tbe fateful circle of its revolution— a revolution which deluded or ill disposed men would willingly have represented as a blessing, nay, as the triumph of an enlightened age. All Governments are wit- nesses of the seal with which these men have endeavoured to persuade their contemporaries, that this revolution was the ne- cessary and wholesome fruitofthe progressof civilization, and the means by which it has been effected- and supported the no- blest essay of generous patrioitsin, If it coidd he the object of civilization to overthrow human society, if it were possible to suppose that the armed force which has no other vocation than tliat of maintaining the internal aud external peace of the state, might with impunity as'. ume ( he supreme dominion ov « r it, the Spanish revolution might ceitaiuly pretend to the admira- tion of all eyes, and the military insurrection in the island of Leon serve as model for Reformers. But truth has soon asserted her rights, and Spain, at the expence of her happiness and her glory, has only furnished a new and melancholy ex- ample of the inevitable consequences of every transgression of eternal laws, of the moral order of the world. The legitimate authority followed, and changed kitoa forc- ed instrument of ihe over throw of rights, and all legal privileges;"' all classes of ihe people flurried away by ihe stream of revo- lutionary movements, violence and oppression exercised under tbe formJ of law ; a whole kingdom given up a prey tu disor- der ami convulsions uf every kind, rich colonies which justify disorganize the efforts of the friends of liberty, Spain may no doubt be over- run and enthralled ; just as an otherwise impregnable fortress may fall, if apart ofthe garrison prove faithless, and ^ igree by blowing up out- works of importance, and by other means, to facilitate the advances of the enemy. The Spaniards are not a people to be intimidated bv bullying— they know how their threateners are provided with that which has been justly called the sinews of war— they know the strength of their country and the sentiments of the population, and we have not the least doubt that they will acquit themselves like men on the present emergency. It appears that our Government have lately claimed an indemnity from Spain, lor certain captures of Eng- lish property since the year 1804-; and by a State Pa- per published in Spain, it also appears, that ships of war have left English ports for the purpose of detaining Spanish property to the amount claimed as lost. We have however reason to believe, that our squadrons are solely destined against the pirates, . who have so long, and so daringly, carried on their depredations, aggra- vated bv acts of the grossest cruelty, in the West Indian and South American seas. We sincerely hope that our Government and that of Spain may keep on amicable terms, for the advantage of both parties; and at pre- sent, our information is not sufficient to warrant our saving any thing more upon the subject.

The mild open weather of fast- week has been succeeded, dur- ing the present, by all the severity of winter. Oil Sunday night last, we had a considerable fall of snow, and although on Monday and Tuesday it partly disappeared, yet, tbe wind then shifting to the eastward, brought strong frost with frequent snow showers. And 011 Thursday and Friday, the fall of snow was so great as to lay several feet deep iu the country, with every appearance of what is called a feeding storm ; so that the com. punlcatinn must soon, it is to be feared, be interrupted generally. The Mail Coach from Edinburgh arrived about two hours later than usual yestciday, hot r ithoui Ihe - London Mail, which has not yet reached this place. But the Mail, and other North C\ aches, catne ill here within two h. urs of thiir usual time. The Cheshire Salt possesses the following advantages over - all the foreign Sails, aud those manufactured from sea water in this country. 1st. The Native Rock Salt contains almost 110 water, and thus is a strong salt for preservi.*^ meat, by dissolving its juices. j 2d, Tt docs not alter by being kept. 3d, It is in larger crystals.

It is feared that a vessel from the Baltic has foundered off tbe South- East Coasi of Fife, as ibe beach between Pitten- weem and Kingsliatns is strewn with deals and planks. On Friday night,' a boat with the name Thomas of Liver- pool" inscribed on its stern, was washed ashore at the E ist- haven ; and on Monday, nearly tho whole of the ringing of A brig was found on the beach near Ferry- Purt- oh- Oaig. A. vessel was seen on Friday 1 ff Easthaven, contending with a dreadful sea ; and it is feared the boat and the rig^ ius must stratifying mode of' salting, because it allows of a slower or more gradual solution of the juices of the meat.

DUNGA 11 VON, Dec. 3Q.— I'lie sloop Swift of Banff, Mair. from St. Michael's to Bristol, was last nighi driven on shore- about three miles from hence ; the ciew are saved, and, if tbe weather moderates, it is expected the vessel will be got off. A fleet, of upwards of twenty vessels, was obliged to run up the Moray Frith, and take shelter at Cromarty, iu the storm. Among these, three Revenue Cruisers, including the Prince- Regent, reported to be lost ; but since,, we learn, sailed for Lcith roads.

It has been found, that when Cheshire Salt has been boiled in fresh water, it coiiturns uo Sulphat of Magnesia whatever. At a Meeting ofthe Caledonian Hunt, held at Edinburgh on Tuesday the 14th inst they elected for the year— The Earl of ELGIN, I'RESES. Sir Alex. Don, Bart Treasurer— Lord ICelbnrne, Lord Elcho, Hon. John Stuart, Counsellors. And they fixed their Annual Autumn Meetingto beheld at Aberdeen. THE TURF.— There are no less than 84 horses entered for the Great St. Leger Stakes, at Doncaster, for 25 guineas each ; a number unprecedented in the annals of those Stakes. Mr. GRORGE DAWSON- has purchased of Mr. KIRBV, the beautiful and high- bred racer, Champignon. The Aberdeen mail- coach arrived here on Sunday an hour later than usual, owing, we understand, to the following ac- cident. Turning a corner of the road near Craniond Bridge, it upset, by wli'Ch one gentleman had his leg fractured, and one or two persons who were in the coach were much bruised. At a meeting of the Society of Scottish A ntiquaries at Edin- burgh, on the 9th ult. the Rev. l^ r.

JVI. A. sent by the Author from London. The thanks of tbe Society were voted, and part of the M.

This Chapel, as stated in our last, is a very neat and com- modious building, and calculated to hold from five to six hun- dred people but nearly treble that number thronged to the spot, and of course many were disappointed. The presence of the Lord- Provost and Magistrates, on the interesting occa- sion, reflected honour upon themselves, whilst it bestowed a merited sanction on the undertaking. A- v soon as they had taken their seats, the Rev. Dr. KIBD commenced the sacred duties of the evening. His sermon was strictly appropriate, and replete with edifying lessons. They applied not only to those for whom the temple was erected, but to the various classes of the community, who, from the indispensible assistance of seamen towards the accomplishment of their Worldly objects, were bound, in gratitude, to take a deep concern in the work they , were engaged in: Among the variety of those on whom claims of- this description rested, wi h irresistible force, he, besides Merchants and Manufacturers, enumerated the various branches connected with maritime objects, from the Ship- builder to the least important occupation connected therewith. The cost of wet and dry docks, the piers, harbour improve- ments, and other immense disbursements, with a view to pub- lic benefit, he shewed to have no other foundation to rest upon, but the exertions of seamen : and he touched, with great effect, on the personal and domestic comforts, o{ which utl classes partook, ' in a less or a greater degree, from th& same source. After alluding to the channels through which mari- ners contribute to the increase, of national wealth, he closed an animated statement of their powerful claims, in a worldly point of view, by an impressive illustration of what we owed to them as the defenders of our foreign possessions, and the triumphant vanquishers of our foreign enemies. Finally,, he proceeded to argue the far more important duty we owed to them as fellow- creatures, the neglected condition of whose souis had too long fastened upon us an alarming and awful responsibility ; and pointed at the establishment then commencing, as eminently calculated to relieve us from so criminating a reproach. The discourse was, upon the w hole, a specimen of pulpit eloquence admirably adapted to the occasion, and calculated to beget powerful sensations in all whq heard it. It was followed by a most affectionate appeal, and the kind- liest admonitions to seamen, from the Rev. Doctor CRUOEN, by whom the congregation were duly impressed, not only with a just sense of tfie usefulness and the necessity of tfie Institu- tion, but of tile irresistible nature of tile application about to be made to the public for the expenses of the piaise- woithy . un- dertaking. The Chapel was opened again 011 Sabbath last, and will be every Sunday and Wednesday evening at. 6 o'clock, the Mini- sters of Ihe several places of wprship who are attached to the cause ( and Ministers of all our chuiches are invited) having arranged to succeed each other iu rotation. The seats are all to be free. Iu tbe final arrangement, the Trustees, ( who are to be chosen out of the congregations in Aberdeen, wnose Mi- nisters supply the Chapel, and who are annually to choose the Office- bearers,) are, when the objects of the Association are accomplished, ( viz. payment of the Chapel ; establishing a Schoel in. the various branches of nautical science, gratis; and- providing a Libraiy,) to summon the Shipmasters of the port, i ' grain, lie. one of which, a Ship fioni Dantzir, for Leghorn, with wheat, having shifted her cargo, wa « obliged to discharge, and h id a brig and sloop alongside- for that purpose, in order to allow the necessary repairs, lu the fleet also, was a Dutch Indian, an. from Holland for Bata- via, which had been three months sailed— during part of which she was in Norway— and, 011 again putting to sea, was over- taken with the late violent gale, and obliged to put into Cro- marty for the purpose of repair, and to recruit her stock of pro- visions and water.
