London : Printed for Baldwin, Cradock, & Joy. It is with feelings of pride and gratification that the Publishers of the Technological Dictionary announce the twelfth and last number of a work which, for variety and comprehensiveness of in- formation, systematic arrangement, and practical utility, challenges a rival in the annals of litera- ture; and it is nr. f the smallest part of their boast that, notwithstanding the unexampled difficulties • which have attended the progress of this work through the press, they have been enabled, by the assiduity of all engaged in it, punctually to per- forin their pledge. at every returning period of publication. As the publishers were determined to spare 110 expense in giving a work of this importance all the completeness which it would admit, they engaged artists of the first celebrity iu different departments to execute the plates, who have performed their part with such success that, combining the author's scientific arrangement with their own skill, they liave rendered these plates 110 less ornamental than they are useful. Having now done all in their power to give this Work a decided superiority over every other book of reference, the publishers look forward to the period, at 110 gi'rat distance, when its merits being fully known and duly appreciated by the public, there will not be found a lover of literature in this or any Other country, where the English language is known, who will not consider the Technological Dictionary an important acquisition to his library. The whole work, price £ 5.8s. in boards, may be procured on application to auv respectable book- seller ; or it may still he taken iu parts by those to whom such a mode of purchase is the most con- venient.

SIR, SOMETIME since T was attacked with a Violent Disorder in my Face, supposed to be either the King's Evil or a Cancer. At first I thought it oniv a trifling Eruption, and that it would I go off upon my taking a few Doses of Physic, but in ' this I was miserably disappointed, for my Nights nnd | Days became intolerable, from the disagreeable Ef- fects of the violent ichorous Humour, which spread in an alarming Manner, and rendered my Counte- nance horribly disgusting. In this deplorable State I applied to, and had the Advice of, several medical Gentlemen, all of whom exerted their professional Skill to no Purpose. Finding my Complaint still increase, and the Efforts of the Faculty ineffectual, I became low- spiritod, nnd a truly melancholy Spec- tacle ; no Sleep at Night; no Rest in the Day : what Medicine to try, or how to obtain Ease, I knew not. My Friends were alarmed, and began to make Jn- quirv among their Acquaintance for a Remedy. At length I heard of your far- famed PLOUGHMAN'S DROPS, nnd had them most strongly recommended to me by several respectable Persons who had expe rienced their wonderful Effects. A Bottle was pro- cured from Owner Yeates, of the Salt Warehouse, Iron- bridge, hy taking which I found immediate Re- lief; an amazing Alteration took place; the violent Itchirigceased—- the Humour disappeared ; 1 received the Congratulations of my Friends; and before the second Bottle was finished, L was free from either Evil or Cancer, and as well as ever I was in my Life. My Case being well known to many Persons in this Neighbourhood, who have the Comfort of their Fellow creatures at Heart, they have requested me to send this to yon, in order to its being made Public for the Benefit of those who are Unfortunately labouring under similar Complaints. 1 am, dear Sir, Your most obliged Servant, SARAH PENDREE.

LORD PORTSMOUTH'S CAUSE.— It gives us pleasure to find that this cause is drawing- towards a conclusion, the nattiie of much ' of. the evidence being- to the full, as disgusting as that brought forward1 on the trial of the late. Queen. In. the case last mentioned, a& narrators' of public events, the great public importance of the question obliged us to sacrifice our own inclination to the general cu- riosity : the present'case being- deeply interesting- only to & few parties, we feel it. equally our duty as; our iiiclination to suppress the fo. bidding detail or the evidence brought forward, satisfied that there is a moral sensibility iu tin? great ' body of our countrymen and readers, that Would turn with sorrow, shame, and indignation from the perusal of such odious trash. The examination of witnesses for the Petition con- cluded on Tuesday morning : and the substance of what had been deposed may be briefly reduced to the following. heads : 1st. It appeared from a va- riety of concurring testimony, that, subsequent to Lord Portsmouth's marriage, a person named AH HER,,, had been introduced into his family, which person not only treated his Lordship with the greatest cruelty, but actually lived m the most audacious state of criminal intercourse with Lady Portsmouth.- 2dly. It appeared that Alder was in- troduced1 into Lord Portsmouth's family by the friends''' of Lady Portsmouth, whose relatives, par- ticularly her Ladyship's brother and sister ( Mr. and Miss Hanson), had also cruelly horse- whipped or otherwise ill- treated his Lordship.— 3dly . It ap- peared that Lord Portsmouth had a kind of relish for attending, the funerals of any persons ( however . poor);; for ringing bell's ; for assisting in filling dung carts, or doing other work about his stable- yard : fo^ assisting in making- hay ; and for other menial services • that he was fond of low com- pany .-. and had a great desire to be often bled, and would a.:. k almost any woman he met to bleed him. — And lastly, that his Lordship's intellects were so weak, as to place him in a state of incurable l, unaey. It appeared also from the evidence, that the marriage between. Lord and Lady Portsmouth had been, brought about by her Ladship's family in a ^ ery mysterious manner, and tinder circum- stances that must induce a belief that the ipost sordid motives actuated her Ladyship's family ; while at the same time his Lordship was, from his unfortunate malady, unconscious of the nature of marriage, and of many of the acts in which he was unhappily made so deep a participator and so great a dupe. On TUESDAY , afternoon, his Lordship was in- troduced into a separate room, where he was pri- lined by. tiwr- CTommissioners, the Conn Mr. George Palmer, also' solicitor to Lord Ports- mouth ever since 1814, was examined at much length. He considered Lord P. to be a weak man, but said he had seen men of weaker minds. FRIDAY— The examination of witness in favour of Lord Portsmouth's sanity was coiifinueit.— M1'. Justice Bui- rough stated, thai he had known Lord P for many years before his first marriage^ and continued ac- quainted with him up to 1816; and during that period lie had no reason whatever" to believe his Lordship had an unsound mind ; he had never seen the least symptom of lunacy, but believed him not to have a very strong understanding. Remembered Lord P. particularly well, on several occasions, doing all the duties of an hospitable landlord, wiih great propriety, and paving tntich attention to hisgnests ; lie had frequestly taiked to Lord P. on mutters of business, aud he. alus talked rationally.— A num- ber of other most respectable - witnesses were ex- amined, among- whom were several Clergymen ; and the testimony of. the whole coincided vv. th the evidence of Mr. Justice Burrough. SATURDAY.— The. examination of witnesses was continued, when the testimony of Mr.- ' Vwifnham, went to negative, or to prove the exaggeration of the statements of former witnesses, who spoke of the Noble Lord treating- his horses with cruelty ; with driving them against trees to upset them : with taking liberties with his servants; and with being concerned in < c black job&," and bell- ring- ing-. Witness had observed, during the twenty years that I e had been acquainted with his Lord- ship, occasional Weakness of intellect, and eccent- ricity of manners; but he was sure that he was not a lunatic, for he could transact business with any man in the most accurate manner.— The case will not terminate, it is said, till next week. Whatever the Commission may make of his Lord- ship, it appears likely to effect a considerable re- duction ot his estate. Twenty guineas a- day are paidfort. be use of Freemason's Hall, where the inquiry is held ; covers are laid for sixty ev^ ry day at dinner, for the Commissioners, ; then there are the fees of Counsel, the travelling expenses, and maintenance of 5 or 600 witnesses, and many other minor charges. All these matters are said to cost at least £ 400 per day; and, should the enquiry continue one month, there will have been an expenditure o'f more than £ 10,000j- and that too, for a mere preliminary proceeding. he felt a difficulty in ' reconcilit\ g. the voting of so small a number of seamen'with' the clangers to which the commerce, and eventually, the honour and safety. of the country, might be exposed. 1 here was still, however, this alternative,- and, consider- ing the state of things abroad, it was a safe and consolatory, one, that the supply which any emerg- ency might call forth was not limited by this vote.. The House understood that' the voting of 25,000 m n on the supply far that night, did not take away the power of. increasing. pi* number to any f-. rr. her extent that might be necessary. There w us no such limitation on the House ; and they rSight, after the lapse of 24 hours, at least at their itting on Monday next, increase it to any extent Ji. ii L t-' ]>:> poniiinflH L'tifw that ihft House vatcly exami sel, and tile Jury. It has been stated that the Court found Lord P.' s notions in some instances very highly confused; he thought that women went nine years with child. lie discovered a great eagerness to inculpate Alder, and scrupled not to relate many things against him which involve/! his own disband r, without perceiving it. He was partially adroit in hiding his follies. When some of them were mentioned, he looked demure ; when they were mentioned to him, he said he had given up following bladejobs ( meaning his indiscriminate attendance at , all funerals) that he never used lancets now ; and as to ringing of bells, he thought it an exercise greatly beneath him. He was ge- nerally coherent, and displayed minute accuracy of memory as to places, names, and dates.— On the whole, however, the proofs of insanity resulting from this examination were supposed not to have been so manifest as to constitute of themselves a full justification for establishing the commission of lunacy prayed for against his Lordship. On WEDNESDAY morning, Mr. Den man ( for the Petition) addressed the Jury. He took a minute review of the evidence of the brutal treatment, spoliation, and degradation, which his Lordship hud endured, the aberrations of conduct so indu- bitably substantiated, and the opinions of the eminent medical men as to the derangement of his- intellect ; and contended, that it altogether, fur- nished irresistible proof of the unsoundness of his Lordship's mind, lie admitted, that, on the pre- ceding day, when the Commission was introduced to his Lordship, the iC manners of the unfortunate Nobleman did strike him, as having'something of grace and good deportment— his smile had more of expression in it than he could have expected in a man of defective intellect, and his health seemed good. But what, had these to do with a general proof of insanity ? Or how was it calculated to set oft'that mass of evidence, of gross and continual aberration, not only from all that was dignified in conduct, but all that was merely decent and pro- per ?" He proceeded to show, that in every case where the weakness of the evidence, or the ma- teriality of some opposing fact, was relied on to render the insanity doubtful, the object failed. In conclusion, he declared that the sole object of the petitioner was to secure his Lordship from further insult and outrage, by placing him under the pro- tection of the laws, Mr. SergeaiH Pell ( in opposition to the Petition,) began by ifmarking, " on the deep importance of the subject, and the peculiar difficulties of his own situation. From first to last no one had felt more determined indignation against the parties who had treated Lord Portsmouth with so much cruelty. If there was a man who felt more horror and resentment against those persons than another, he was that man, These feelings were increased by the opportunities which he had enjoyed of seeing Lord Portsmouth. He found his Lordship peculiarly sensible to kind treatment. He had pressed the hand of the Learned Sergeant to hisbreast, and, with much mental distress, aud seeming agitation— w ith a faltering voice, a fail- ing accent, and streaming eyes— he committed to him this which he now felt to be a sacred cause." The Learned Sergeant proceeded to quote various authorities as to the legislative definition of lunacy, and its legal interpretation. He dwelt upon the con- duet of Abler iu an eloquent strain of indignant severity. He considered him rather as " a pestilence hanging upon Ihe unfortunate Nobleman, blighting his hopes and his happiness, rendering him wretched, making him mad ! exercising over him a species of IT fined cruelty, a terror and torture to him by day, by night his demon, fastening on his bedside, and mak- ing dreadful those hours which, if perfect happiness could be enjoyed on earth, were peifect in happiness to a faithful husband and a faithful wife! ( A burst of applause followed, which the Commissioners re- proved, as being incompatible with the serious nature of the business before the Court.) There was an action for criminal conversation instituted against the Countess: but if it were not yet brought, it might be; aud there was, no doubt, enough of ground to secure a verdict for Lord Portsmouth. A divorce might also he obtained — his wife was already sepa- rated from him : even now he was enjoying all the protection which tin ir verdict could in any case give him." He admitted lhat the conduct of the marriage ceremony yvas 44 most improper, and there was no oue concerned in it w ho would feel free from shame ; but let it be understood, that the crime carried its o^ vn punishment iu the censure it provoked from public opinion. What must have been the feelings of that family ( the Hansons) during the last fortnight! flow must they, in the bitterness of their hearts, have deprecated that marriageHow must they now de- plore departing from the straight road of truth and integrity, from motives of interest and ambition, to wander iu labyrinths of crime !" He contended lhat his Lordship was now sufficiently protected by the laws, and ought not to be placed under a Lunatic Commission. THURSDAY— Mr. Sergeant Pell terminated his ad- dress to the Jury at one. He admitted, in conclusion, that there was about Lord Portsmouth's mind a de- gree of mist and of delusion: but the question for their decision was, whether that delusion was in- capable of removal— whether a ray of light did not exist which might give hope of an opening- dawn of reason— or w hether all menial energy was to be con- sidered as involved in eternal darkness.? It was for the Jury to decide ibis important point - that Jury was of the first character— it was composed of men of superior intellect and judgment, of legislators, and even of descendants of the Royal blood— and to their candid and dispassionate consideration he was satis- fied he could safely leave the interests of his noble but unfortunate client. I he Court separated for a quarter of an hour, and then proceeded to the examination of evidence against the Petition. , Mr. Thomas France, joint solicitor to Lord Ports- mouth, was the first witness. He deposed to having received instructions" from his Lordship to defend his < H » use. When he first knew Lord P. in 1816, he con- sidered him of sound mind, tho' incapable of manag- ing his a flairs without advisers; but . admitted that his Lordship was now of unsound mind, and hud been so since his return from Edinburgh, last July. To some questions from the Jury as to the imperfect instructions of Lord P. if l| e'believed him insane^ witness replied by a query," how could his Lordship, if insane ' - ' ' . . . HOUSE OF COMMONS, THURSDAY. VOTING IN BOROUGHS. Lord JOHN RUSSELL moved for t he appointment of a Select Committee, to enquire into the right of voting on the election of Members to serve in Parliament. His Lordship prefaced his motion in a long and very able speech, in the course of w hich he cited a number of precedents, and stated that acceding to his pro- position implied no pledge upon the great question of Keform, but went merely fo obtain for the House and the country correct information as to the true state of the representation Mr. CANNING and Mr. PEEL resisted the motion, as likely to impress the public with the erroneous opinion, that Parliament is favourable to the design of a Reform; and as tyrannical ahd unjust, in ex- posing to light, and therefore to danger, the Charters and Muniments of the different incorporated towns and boroughs whose elective franchise . would become the object of investigation. Mr. A& ERC t able interest. He had no doubt but all those who would pay attention to the statements contained in it, would be uhanin » o » s iu their opinion of the hardships and sufferings of the petitioner. He bad given notice on a former day, that lie would on that night present the petition, and that lie would, on Wednes day, the 5th of March, move for the appointment of a Committee to inquire into Mr. Thompson's case He did not, therefore, at present, wish to provoke any discussion, nor detain the House from the state- ment of the Right Hou. Gentleman the Chancellor of tfie Exchequer; neither was be willing to give any offence to the feelings of the parties to whom the allegations in the petition applied by reading it through. He hoped, however, that those persons would think on the matter before the day for whiei his notice of motion for a Committee stood, and would enter into some arrangement with the petitioner. The history of the case was shortly this : — Mr. Thompson aud his father were respectable wine. tnerchams, and realised a considerable property by their industry and attention to business. Having a desire to in vest his money in landed security, the petitioner purchased an estate in Hertfordshire. This wa: several years ago, when land was in higher estimation than it was at. present. The purchase money was £ 62,000, which he paid dow n. The improvements cost him about £ 10,000 more, which, added to the purchase. money, made £ 72,000. In some time after, liis success in business enabled him to purchas another estate. It lay iu Herefordshire, and was valued at £ 65,500. The petitioner made a deposit of £ 5,500 on the purchase, but in some time after he was informed by his attorney that the title was not satisfactory. He according! v applied for his deposit, but the vendor made application to tlie Court of Chancery to coin pel'him to make good his purchase The bill stood on the files of that Court for several years, during which the Vendor kept possession of the estate, and received the rents arid profits. Tlie Vice- Chancellor, before whom the bill was at length brought, decreed that the title was valid, and obliged the purchaser to pay the rest of the purchase- money, together with the interest on it since the date of the contract to buy, the vendor accounting for the rents and profits in the mean time. Not being able to pay thf halunre in consequence of some tosses in the mean time, he gave the vendor a mortgage on both the estates, anil continued to pay till lie redeemed the debt to about£ 6i), 000, His losses in business being- very heavy, be was obliged to offer both estates for sale, subject to the murtgag'c, in 1821 In Hertford- shire he found mi bidder, and for tbe Herefordshire estate be was offered a small sum, in consequence of the great fall of landed produce. The vendor of the latter applied to the Lord Chancellor to have the mortgage on both estates foreclosed, and to have them given over to him in lieu of bis debt. Tbe conse- quence was, that Mr. Thompson loses both estates in which he had invested so much money, while the vendor gained an estate without tbe loss of any thing. He was in possession of tbe prolits of bis own estate, except from 1819 to 1821 He continued to receive the prolits, and bad also £ 5,500 of Mr. Thompson. Tbe case required relief, but be could not theu say what that relief would be. Tbe petitioner was in- volved iu those losses, not by any fault of his own, bat by the delay in tbe Court ot Chancery, and by tbe pressure on the agriculturists. It was stated to him that tbe petitioner was a rash speculator, if so bis claim to relief was weakened. He ( Lord Folke- stone) bad inquired into the truth of that statement, and found that tbe estate in Hertfordshire, which cost in purchase and improvements £ 72,000, contain- ed 770 acres, worth at that time £ 5 a- year per acre, The timber on it was worth £ 19,000. To the manor, which contained 2,000acres, was attached a right of advowson. Tbe purchase of all those for £ 72,000 could not be called a rash speculation. VOTE OF SEAMEN. Sir J. OSJIOKNE said, that tlie Estimate for the service of the Navy differed . somewhat from that voted last year. . The number of seamen proposed this year amounted to 25,000 men instead ot' 21,000, the disturbed state of South America, the West Indies, and the Mediterranean having rendered this addition of 4,000 men necessary. There was also a small increase in the rate of wages, amount- ing. to 6d. per head, th. c monthly expense for each man amounting to £ 2. 7s. lid. He moved that 25,000 seamen, including marines, be granted for tbe service of the Navy for the year. Mr BROUGHAM said he did not rise to oppose the vote, although he was rather surprised that a that might he required. He k, nfip! that the House w re well aware that they possessed this power ; hut he was afraid that there inight: be others who were ignorant of it. He should; regret if any pe sdu abroad, especially any - person connected wi h the Governments on ' the continent of Europe, ••• o tiid, in the present aspect of that continent, have any ground even fori momentary belief, that - he supply of our Navy for the rear was to be 1 tniml to 25,0.00 men.' He Uionld like, too, t » lave it said on the part of the Ministers of the Ci- pwn, that should the aspect of affairs became nich as to render the service of a greater lumber of seamen necessary, that number would be instautly demanded of the " House, and he was sure, that if the servants of the Crown did come down to that House lo make such a demand, they would obtain it without one observation in the House, anil, not merely their consent, but. the approbation of. the people without. He was sure that should any emergency arise that would call for it, the servants of the Crown would meet with every encouragement in supporting the honour of the Crown and tbe independence and interests of the country. He wiis sure that they would follow no that' manly and constitutional declaration which had been made on a former even- ing;. and. if Government shewed. the disposition, lie was sure that the people, would find them re- - ourcea for supporting the honour and dignity of the country. Mr. Secretary CANNIXG said:,' I take occasion, Sir, from the few sentences wfeti have. fallcn from the Hon. Member, to express my acknowledgments for the manner in which' he has expressed his opinion ; and my entire concurrence in tile propo- sition that lie has laid down. Undoubtedly the present vote no more limits the liberality of Parlia- ment, than it limits the capacity of the country. And if an occasion shall arise to render it necessary to enlarge tlie supply, there will be no hesitation on the part of Ministers to come down to this House with an explanation of the circumstances that re- quire an increased vote, and a Statement of the remand necessary to meet 1ho. se circumstances, lint having said this for the purpose ( as stated by the Hon. Gentleman) of obviating any possible mistake that might be entertained as to ' the powers of this House, I am sure the Committee will pardon me if I stop here— assuring tliefti that the present state of Europe is oue, on which the discussions in this House can produce no greater effect than has been already produced by preceding discussions but on which they might possibly do harm.-! will make one observation more ; much as it is the wish and much as it is the w ant of this country, as well as of Europe, to preserve the peace of " the world and no effort shall be left untried, none left itnex hansted to promote that cnd> y yetyitttlris eoasidera tion, there enters no feeling of apprehension - confident as the country must be in its own inex- haustible . resources, anil ia the disposition of Par liament to maintain the integrity' of those resources and of the public credit, there Will be no want of means of exertion, if the necessity of exertion shall arise. - The Committee theii voted £ 455,000, for tlie pay of seamen, at £ 1. 8s, per man per lunar month ; - Hi, 7.50 for wear and tear ; aud £ 81,25!) ordinaries for the sea service. The House then resumed, and the Chairman reported progress. REDUCTION OF TAKES THE CHANCELLOR OF TBE EXCHEQUER ( Mr. F. J. Robinson), in a speech admirable for its temp? and clearness, brought forward what may not unaptly he termed his Budget. He took an ex which lie had undertaken, nor was lie unaware of the obloquy with which its performance must be at- tended ; but this lie now said, and he would pledge himself to ma.-. e it good hereafter, that spoliation, great spoliation had been committed, and that from it was derived nine teV. ths of the misery which the people of England now felt, and which the ad- ministration of the country would have to rue for niaiiy years that were yet to come. Lord MiETON observed, that it was so long since he had personally taken any share in the debutes of the House, and so little lie knew of what had oc- curred in it during his absence, that he could hardly tell with which party in ii he had now to agree", or to which party he had now politically to oppose, himself. Two surprises had, however, be- fallen him in the course of the evening - one of them was the speech of his Hon . Friend the Member for Shrewsbury, which he most strongly depre- cated ; and the other, which was of a more agree- able nature, w; as the speech of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, which was filled with a temper and good feeling that reflected upon him the highest credit. lie could not but congratulate the House and the country upon the spirit that had been manifested by the new Government; for new he must call it, since there was an evident change in all its feelings, and even in ail its modes of dealing . with important public questions.— Having said thus milch in praise of the domestic administration of the country, and giving Ministers every credit for the foreign policy which they seemed inclined to adopt, he must now proceed to remark that the relief which the Right Hou. Gent, had proposed, was less than that which the country had a right to expect, and than that which would do it any material good. Mr. Wo nr. no USE complained that the relief which the agricultural interest was likely to obtain from the proposed measure was wholly inadequate: he suggested some modification or diminution of the Malt KX-.— THE- CBAKCBI J.

Sijch is, in substance, the extent of relief from Taxation wlreh the country is this year to receive. In conclusion, the Right Hon. Gent, said, Who can lpok back to the vast efforts which the country has made— to the dangers which she has surmounted and the sacrifices she has made in order fo secure her capacity to meet those dangers— who can look hack to those things and contemplate the prospect <$ the future, without feelings of veneration and attachment for those' institutions wh- ch, having for their basis civil and Religious liberty, constitute in themselves the un- bending supporters of national glory and pro- sperity !"—;' Loin! ana' universal cheers. J Mr. MABERLY stated, that lie was prepared with a plan, by which forty- three millions might be speedily obtained from a redemption of the Land Tax— a measure which, without impairing public credit, would enable Parliament to suspend the Sinking Fund for five or six years, and thus to repeal the whole of the Assessed Taxes at once. He read a series of resolutions explanatory of the nature and supposed operation^ of his measure. Mr. RICARDO and Mr. BALING approved of the plan of the Ministers but with some qualifications. — Lord FOLKESTONE disapproved of it altogether. Mr. II. G. BENNET felt it his duty to remind tlie Right Hon. Gent, opposite,, who had talked so much about the honesty that was due to the public creditor, that there was alsd an honesty due to the public debtor. The country, he mainta; ned, was only bound to pay the debt which it had borrowed, and he would never allow move to be exacted from it by any shuffling trick regarding the public cur- rency to which Parliament might have consented, by lending its aid to the Government to despoil at one time the public creditor, and at aimther the public debtor. He would never allow tn- e people to be stripped of the last farthing of their property by a system which had created amongst them greater* misery, and inflicted upon them greater spoliation than had ever been inflicted upon any people by any system invented under any form of government. The question of the currency must come again and ag- ain before the consideration of Parliament. The people of: England would not consent to be robbed in the manner that was now attempted. County after county would petition and demand from the House— not spoliation, but justice ; and Parliament would be Compelled in the long run, in spite of itself, to come to that equitabte adjustment of contracts, which he now claimed at its hands for the people, of England, not as a matter of indulgence, out as a matter of right. The people of England would not allow themselves to be stripped of their last shilling by an act; which the House had enacted ignorant y and with no intention of robbing them, but which had produced all the effects of intended spoliation upon them and their fortunes. He should have been ashamed of himself, if he had left the House that night, without making this explicit declaration of . his opinions. Those opinions he should be prepared at a proper time to state more fully, and to justify by details and facts which would prove, even - with mathe matical certainty, the spoliation which the people for some years past had been obliged to endure. He knew the hazard and the difficulty of the tasK POSTSCRIPT. LONDONy Monday Night, Feb. 24, 1823. Mr. Jackson arrived on Saturday from Madrid, with dispatches from Lord Fitzroy Somerset. He left Madrid on the 13th, at night. Lord Fitzroy Somerset remains at Madrid. The Spanish Go- vernment have under consideration a proposal for removing the King and the seat of Government im- mediately to Cadiz. The proposal has not yet been submitted to the Cortes. It is added that his Majesty does not acknowledge the necessity of such a removaL and that it is not likely to be viewed with satisfaction by the Clubbists and the populace. It was known at Madrid that France was deter- mined upon sending her army into Spain forthwith, and that war was inevitable. We learn from the Lisbon Papers of the 15th instant, that a disposition exists on the part of the Portuguese Cortes to make common cause with Spain, in the event of a war between that country • ind France. The finances of Spain nre in a deplorable state, and the Government is about to collect the taxes in kind — that is, by a general taking of the goods of the defaulters.

On Sunday last, a Sermon was preached in the parish church of Whitlington, by the Rev. John Parker, B. A.; after which a collection was made in aid of the funds of the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge. CAMBRIDGE, FE3. 21.— At a congregation on Wednesday last, a grace passed the Senate by a very considerable majority, " to petition the House of Commons against admitting the Roman Catholics to political power." FATAL ACCIDENT.-— On Thursday last, about half past one o'clock in the afternoon, a melancholy and fatal occurrence took place in Wolverhampton. In opening the ground to replace some pipes, to carry water to a reservoir, under a large chimney upwards of seventy feet high, belonging to the works of Messrs. Mander, Weaver, and Mander, of that town, the foundation gave way, and the whole came to the ground. In its descent, a portion unfortunately fell on the work- shops of William Davies, a hinge- maker, adjoining, in which were his son, a youth about 17, and a workman, named Dudley, both of whom were unhappily killed. Davies himself was at dinner, as were also others of his workmen, or they must have inevitably shared the same fate. Dudley was a sober, industrious Workman, and has left a pregnant widow and two children. DREADFUL ACCIDENT. On Wednesday evening, the Theatre at Newcastle- upon- Tyne was the scene of one of the most calamitous events ever remembered in that town. Shortly after the commencement of the second act of the play { Tom and Jerry J, the gas- light in the third box from the stage, on the right side of the house, by some accident, set fire to the back part of the box in which the light was placed. It is said there was some wood near the gas- pipe, aud that an ex- traordinary efflux of gas had been the primary cause of the melancholy event we are about to record.— No sooner was the cry of " fire" heard, than the alarm in the gallery ( in which were nearly 1000 persons) became terrific, and notwithstanding every exertion made by Mr. De Camp ( the manager), the performers, and many of the res- pectable audience, the pressure from the gallery to the stairs was tnost appalling, in consequence of which seven persons ( three of them females) were bruised or suffocated to death, and several others wcj- e very dreadfully injured. OSWESTRY.—- A copy of an energetic memorial from the inhabitants of Oswestry to the Lords of Ihe Treasury, against any diversion of the line of the Holyhead Road in this county, will be found in a subsequent column. Among the benefactions for relieving the poor during the late inclement season, 25 tons of coal were distributed among the indigent in the parish of C'hurchstoke. The coal was given by the pro- prietors of the land, and the luggage thereof by the tenantry. EIRE.— The premises occupied byMessrs. Parry and Truss, as a coach manufactory, in Chester' were consumed by fire on Monday morning last. It is not known how the fire originated j the damage estimated at £ 1500. FAIRS TO BE HOLDEN.

[ From our Private Correspondent.] In the Mouse of Lords this evening, the F. arl of LIVERPOOL, in reply to a question from the Marquis of LANSDOWNE, stated, that, should an open rup- ture take place between the Allied Powers on the . Continent and Spain, this country was in no way bound to take any particular or allotted part in reference to such conflict. No other subject of importance was discussed in the House of Lords.— In tbe House of Commons, Mr. Serjeant ONSLOW gave notice that he should, on an early day, move the repeal . of the Usury Laws. THE FUNDS— Contrary to the general opinion, stocks improved to- day : a fall of 1 per cent, at least was fully expected.— Consols did decline, however, when the market opened, to 7' 2|, but subsequently recovered to 73-| j, at which price they continued to the shutting of the Stock Ex- change.— The fall produced by the news from the Continent on Saturday, appears to have been an- ticipated, and the French Funds of Saturday having varied very little from the price of the previous dav, tended to support the English market— New 4 per Cent. 931— Old ditto 93|— Reduced 74| — Consols 734.

Public Money, and for no adequate Purpose; j Upon the Motion of the Hon. TIIOMAS KENYON, seconded by the Rev.

That, though your Memorialists admit that Pri- vate and Local Interests ought, in a great Degree, to give Way to the paramount Claims of Public Utility ; yet they humbly submit to your Lordships, that Public Faith once pledged should, in every Case, be held inviolate. Under these Impressions, they beg Leave to submit to your Lordships the following- Facts. , That, 111 the Year 1802. a new Line of Cornmuni- i cation was perfected, and shortly afterwards, under I the Sanction of Government, carried into Effect, between London and Holyhead, passing through i Oswestry and Capel Cerig, and thence to Bangor ; ' that the Sums necessary for its Completion were I raised principally by Subscription ; and that much ( the greater Number of Subscribers were Inhabitants } of Oswestry and its Neighbourhood., who were | mainly induced thereto by a Desire to secure to their | Town and Neighbourhood the Advantage of becom- ing the great Thoroughfare between the British ' and Iris!)

Consent, had it not been under a Pledge, strongly implied, that the present Line of Road was to and Dublin. That the Quantity of Travelling through the County of Solon is insufficient to maintain Two Lines of Road in a Direction so nearly parallel ; and that whatever Tolls may be imposed for the Maintenance " of the newly- projected Line, it is manifest that the Abstraction of Travelling by that Means from its old Cou. se will materially lessen the Funds and injure the Security of the Creditors upon the present Line. That it appears to your Memorialists that DO sufficient Necessity has been shewn for the proposed Alteration, inasmuch as the present Line of ( load may, by judicious Alterations ( mill preserving its old Course), and without any additional Burden to the. Public, secure lo the Irish Traveller every Convenience ( in Point of Time); he appears, by the last Report of the Select Committee made to Parlia- ment, to expect ; and the Object of the Post- Offiee has been already attained, inasmuch as the London Mail, even in the present State of the Communi- cation, now arrives in Dublin in sufficient Time for forwarding Correspondence into the Interior of Ireland by the same Ev. uiug Mail. Under all these Circumstances, your Memorialists beg Leave to submit to your Lordships that the proposed Diversion of the Road would be highly injurious to the Public and Private Interests of the Town of Oswestry and its Neighbourhood ; a vir- tual Breach of Faith towards a Majority of the Contributors to the Capel Cerig Road, and also towards the Commissioners who have most cheer- fully acquiesced ' in the Wishes of the Select Committee in. giving up their respective Trusts; and likewise, would facilitate in a very slight and uncalled- for Degree the Communication between London and Dublin. Yotir Memorialists therefore trust that the pro posed Plan will not receive the Countenance or Support of Ilis Majesty's Government.

Mr. BARRY O'MEARA. In the last Number of the Quarterly Review, published on the loth instant, there is an- article so trauscendautly powerful, as an exposure of O'Meara's Book about Napoleon, that it is hoped every honest man who has read the one will feel it a duty to peruse the other. The writer of the article, whoever he may be, has done a great public service-, by fixing an indelible brand upon a Work, which the willing credulity of a malignant faction had forced into something iik* e authority. The Quarterly flevicw ( aw is well known) is read wherever sound literature^ honourable principle, and manly loyalty, have estimation ; and it ruay seem a work- of supererogation to assist in difl'usins: its sentiments., But the disaffected. Press of the country circulated, with eagerness, detached pas- sages of O^ leaia's Book, " for the purpose of poisoning men's minds against the Public Autho- rities, and. against the honourable individuals whom those Authorities employed. Those frag- ments found their way iiilO places where the Quarterly Review certainly will not; and we, therefore, now use our best efforts towards mak~ ing ihe antidote co- ordinate with the mischief. EXTUACTSj Mr. O'Meara had been, it seems, a surgeon' in the army, aijd was dismissed from-' tiiat. service by sen-, teuce of a court. martial ; he then entered into the naval service, into bieh, we presume, he must have procured the admission by a discreet silence as to his having ever belonged to the sister service; and, ot Buonaparte's capture, in 1815, be happened to be surgeon of the Bellerophon, in which the prisoner was sent to England. We formerly observetff that it was curious Buonaparte could not induce oive of his own medical, men to follow him, and we attributed the fact to the. disinclination of the members of ah educated;, enlightened, and independent profession, to attach themselves to such a person; but we now doubt the justice of this opinion. There inu^ f have been many persons of that profession not so scrupu- lous ; and we suspect that Buonaparte—, w ho was never aci used of a want of knowledge of a certain class of mankind, and who had a peculiar and con- genial knack at discovering persons who were fit to he made his tools— soon saw that an English surgeon, if lie could so manage as to procure one, might better . answer all his present purposes, aud promote his ulterior views ; a thought not improbably sug- gested to him by the just appreciation, • ft hieh, on a slight acquaintance, be seems to have maffe of Mr. O'Meara. However this may be, the French Doctor. Maingaud was dismissed at Plymouth.; und O'Meara — who does. not appear to be even an M. D.— was ap- pointed ( probably without much previous enquiry into his former history), at Buonaparte's own re- quest, his body physician. In this situation Mr. O'Meara continued from August, 1815, to April, 1818, when lie was dismissed from that duty, for— its we gather from his book — a series of mis- conduct, of which, indeed, almost every page affords pregnant instances; and on his leturu to England, having demanded an inquiry on his conduct, he was? altogether dismissed from the naval service ; and it was then ( for the first time we hope) known that he had been already dismissed front the a liny. #'.###*'*#.# * His work consists of two great branches, which, though twined together, are yet capable of being promptly distinguished; the first is, the charges and calumnies brought against Sir Hudson in O'Meara's proper person ; the second, the charges and ca- lumnies against the governor,. and the lies and libels on aU subjects aiid against all men, which he puts into the mouth of Buonaparte. We shall examine these in their order; for it is evident that 0' Meara's credit is the hinge upon which the whole discussion must turn, and if we do not deceive ourselves, we think that, after reading the following observations, no man, nay, no woman alive will hesitate to say, that lie is w holly discredited as a witness; lie him- self will be overwhelmed ( if lie be capable of . the sensation) with shame; and those who have counte- nanced and encouraged him will be covered with ridicule. We doubt, whether the annals of literary criticism, nay, whether those of legal criticism, exhibit so decisive an exposure as that we are now about to inflict on this unfortunate person. # * * * * " * #.. O'Meara's dismissal from St. Helena was sudden, and earlier than his or Buonaparte's secret cor- respondents in Europe expected. A short time after his departure a ship arrived from England, having on board a box of French books verbally stated to be for O.' Meara, and a letter addressed to a Mr. Fowler, the partner of ' Ba I com be, Buonaparte's purveyor. Mr. Fowler, on opening the cover, found that it contained nothing but an inclosnre addressed to - James Forbes, Esq. As he knew no James Forbes, he thought it his duty to carry the letter to the Governor'; further inquiries ascertained that there was no person of the name of James Forbes on the island ; and accordingly it was thought proper to open this mysterious letter before the Governor and Council, when it was found to begin with the words " Dear O'Meara ;" it is dated Lyon's Inn, London, and is signed kt William Holmes." We find in vol. 1, p. 12 ( of O'Menra's Book), a confession of O'Meara's, which implicates him in the whole affair, and proves thai the letter was on the business of Buonaparte, namely, that4 Mr. Holmes, of Lyon's Inn, was Napoleon's AGENT in London, and that O'Meara kept up,— by means of a friend on board one of the King's ships in the roads,— a communica- tion with this Agent of Buonaparte.' If all had been of the most innocent and indifferent- kind, it must be admitted that, the very fact of such com- munications— secret communications between the confidential attendant of Buonaparte at St. Helena and his agent iu London— was highly improper, and of itself required the removal of O'Meara; but what will our readers say, when they see the nature of them ? " June 26,1818. 44 Dear O'Meara, 111 have at, length seen Mr. ( a person lately come from St. Helena,) who 1 am sure will exert himself much for bis friends at St. Helena. His stay in London will be about a fortnight, most of which tittle be Will remain at my house. The letter yon gave him for me, he left at Ascension Island, to be forwarded ; so that, I know not your instructions. He did think of going to the continent for the benefit of his wife's health, but is fearful of improper mo- tives being ascribed to the taking the journey, and particularly as the tongue of slander has already been busy with his name. I told him, that, if BUSINESS* had any thing to do with the object of his journey, I would be happy to go in his place; but, he says, he has only one commission to execute at Paris* which is so unimportant, ihat he would not trouble me ; and that, indeed, his name being men- tioned, be thought 1 could not effect it. If, there- fore, yoaare aware of the nature of the commission, and that it is necessary still to execute it, yon had better get ME AUTHORIZED to, transact the business. 44 1 expect to hear from my friends at Rome and Munich, of which you shall have due information." Our readers know, that at Munich resided His Imperial Highness Prince Eugene Napoleon, and at Rome Cardinal Fescli and the princesses of the im- perial family. Before this letter was dispatched, O'Meara's own letter, which bad been left at As cension, reached the hand of Buonaparte's agent, who thereupon adds a postscript, from which we may judge of the nature of O'Meara's instructions. u I continue the duplicate, to say, that the letter from Ascension Island, left by is just come to hand. All the parcels sent in July last, by Mr. J. are safe; since which, two have been left by some unknown hand ; one brought by P » . and two by B. This is the sum total of my receipts, except your letters of the 17th and 31st of March, and 2d April, u I intend starling for Paris next week, to see LA PITT Band, perhaps, will see Las Cases; but 1 fear my journey will be useless, from the insufft- ciencif of the documents I hold. " Seek every opportunity of writing me, and sending what you can. S. and P. refused to pay Gourmand's bill for £ 500, but they have since heard from Las Cases, wild it is settled. I understand the old general does not mean to publish ; but should be, Perry, of the Chronicle, has promised his assistance. " 1 understand YOU are to draw for £ 1800. You shall hear• the issue of my visit to LAFITTE ; and,. if your remittances are paid, TRADE of that kind can be carried on to ANY EXTENT. 41 W. HOLMES." The friend on board the King's ship in the roads was, we suppose, the surgeon Stokoe, whom O'Meara had probably initiated into these practices, to supply his place when he should be sent away. Stokoe was also dismissed from the service, we suppose, on the discovery that Holmes had endeavoured to transmit secretly. through him, 44 in case O'Meara should have left St. Helena," a communication to Gen Bei trand : * This word is double- uudetlined iu the original. tc 3, Lyon's Inn, Strand, London, August 26,1818. " Dear Sir, 4i If my friend and client O'Meara has left, oblige me by giving the inclosed to Count Ber'traiid in private^ for although it is not of much importance, 1 nevertheless do not wish the Governor to peruse it; have the goodness also to give my address, and desire any letters to be sent to my office; " 1 am, & c. U W. HOLMES." [ Letter inclosed in the cihove without address.] 44 Reply to Letter addressed fo Paris : 44 The. 100,000 francs lent in 1816 ~ » te paid ; - like- wise the 72,000 francs, which complete the 395,000 fraii, es, mentioned in the note of the 15th of March. The 36,000* francs for 1817, and the like sum for 18: 19, have also been paid by the person ordered. " Remain quiet as to the funds placed ; the farmers are good, and they- will pay bills for the amount of the income, w hich must be calculated at the rate of four per cent, commencing from 1816, that is to say, there will be three years of the interest due the expiration of the present year. " All other letters have been delivered." We shall not insult the understanding of our readers by any comments on these letters; we will only remind them, that it has since appeared, by legal proceedings in France, that the house of Lafitte had in its possession, at this period, an immense sum of money belonging to Buonaparte. It will also be observed that O'Meara, whose salary appears to have been Under £ 500 per annum, was to draw, in one sum, for £ 18001 We believe we shall hear no more of the injustice of removing Mr. O'Meara from about Buonaparte; and vie hope that the world will ap- preciate the credit to be given to so candid and disinterested a witness. # * * 4 # * * Our next observation relates to fhe statement of O'Meara, so often repeated, that Sir Httds- bfi Lowe endeavoured to induce him to act as a spy on ftnona. parte. This slander, we might perhaps' c'o'nfent ourselves by indignantly denying, but some little circumstances- require ( for OWeara's sake)' frarthej' elucidation. On the 23d December, 1817, O'MWra, who bad,- by this time, quite thrown off the mask, writes a Let us loot? at some of1 the, topics ot these eothfhft- nications, and compare, them with the corresponding passages of his work. The reader will see, that to the baseness of " espionage" he adds that of falsify- ing in his hook the statements which he had ori- ginally ma lie. One of the most grievous, and apparently the least excusable, offences charged upon Sir Hudson Lowe, is, that, on the arrival of the Marquis de Monehenu, the French Commissioner, at St. Helena, Sir Hudson refused Madame ' Ber11. and permission to see the Marquis and inquire of him the state of her mothers health, whom lie had lately seen; and that lie rejected, w ith equal cruelty, a similar desire from Las, Cases to inquire after his wife. 44 ' July 67/?., 1816.— Madame Bertram! informed Captain Poppleton and myself, that she had written a letter to M. Monehenn, in Which she had requested hiiu to call at her residence, as she had heard that lie had seen her motherwho was in an- indifferent state of healthy and she was very desirous to inquire about her; that Las Cases would also come and meet him on his arrival, as he was informed that Monchenu had seen his wife a short time before his departure from Paris."— Vol. i. p. 70. The fact of this letter having been sent direct fo the French Commissioner, and without the Governors knowledge, as enough of itself to prevent M. de MouoheuuV accepting the invitation; but this was wrested into a design of Sir Hudson to torment Madame Bertrand, when, in fact, lie only disap- proved of the invitation having- been sent hy an iui- most insolent letter to Sir Hudson Lowe, accusing the Governor of having attempted to seduce him to become a spy on his patient. This letter was sent by O'Meara fo England, and soon appeared in the Morning Chronicle. To malign Sir Hudson Lowe was, no doubt,- the object— but we shall now show, by a series of extraordinary facts connected with thfs letter, that 1 even handed justice Commends the ingredients of his poisoned chalice To his own lips; if we had no other evidence it would be sufficient to overwhelm the Writer. The letter is dated Longwood, the 23d December, 1817, and the following is an extract : — 44 Sir— tn consequence of some circumstances which have latterly occurred relative to the obliga- tions expected from a person filling the situation I have the honour to hold, 1 conceive it to be essen- tially necessary to lay ihe following statement before your Excellency. 44 When asked by Napoleon Buonaparte to tell him candidly, whether he ought to consider me as a surgeon d^ un Galere, of as a medical man in whom he could repose confidence, I replied, that I was not a surgeon d'un Ga! eie\ that t was a surgeon and riot a spy, and one in whom 1 hoped he might place con- fidence— THAT MY PRINCIPLES WERE TO FORGET THE CONVERSATIONS I HAD WITH MY PATIENTS ON LEAV- ING THE ROOM, unless as far as regarded my allegi- giance as a British officer to my Sovereign and country— and that my orders only obliged me to one thing, viz. to give immediate notice, to the Governor incase of any serious illness befalling him, in order that the best medical advice might be promptly aff„„ led." Unhappily for Mr. O'Meara's credit, the account given in the letter, and that given in the book, essentially differ en and the cause of, the difference is infamous. In the journal [ O Meala's Book], which, written at the moment, ought to have been more full and detailed than the letter written eighteen months after, there is no trace of these re- markable words— That my principles were to FORGET the conversations I had with my patients on leaving the room ! Why was this important omission made in the journal ? — because every line of the journal gives the letter the lie—- because the preface to the journal, in recommending its authenticity to the reader, states that— 44 immediately on retiring from Napoleon's pre- sence I hurried to my chamber, and carefully com- mitted to paper the topics of the conversation, with, so far as I could, the exact words used." The baseness of such an act is scarcely surpassed by the folly of such a confession ! but even this is not all. In several places of the book O'Meara boasts tliat he communicated these conversations to official persons in. England: not content with this, the mo- ment the unhappy patient has expired, the moment he can no longer deny or explain the abominations imputed to him, the faithful physician— 4 whose prin. ciple it is to forget the conversations he had with his patients, on leaving* the room'— hurries to sell the hoarded scandal, and exposes to all mankind the conversations which had been confided to the private ear of friendship. We should be at a loss for lan- guage to express our sense of such conduct, but we fortunately find it already done by Mr. O'Meara himself, in another passage of this extraordinary letter of Dec. 23, 1817 :— 44 He who, clothed with the specious garb of a physician, insinuates himself into the confidence of liis patient, and avails himself of the frequent oppor- tunities and facilities which his situation necessarily presents of being near his person, to wring ( under pretence of curing or alleviating his infirmities, aud in that confidence which has been from time imme- morial reposed by the sick in persons professing the healing art) disclosures of his patients' sentiments and opinions for the purpose of afterwards betray- ing them, deserves most justly to be branded with the appellation of 4 ( a wretch more in- famous even than a spy." Mr. O'Meara may, perhaps, affect to see some difference between being a spy for the Governor, and a spy for his official friends in England, or for the booksellers ; but even this paltry subterfuge we shall not allow him ; we shall show that, after all his rant about principles and honour, he volunteered Xo be A SPY to the Governor himself and consummated his duplicity by forcing on Sir Hudson Lowe his reports not only of what passed amongst the men at Longwood, but even interlarded the details relative to his female patients with sneers and sarcasms of the lowest kind : we could not have believed this on any verbal statement whatsoever— nothing, in short, but the having before our eyes, as we have, the proofs, would have induced us to state so incredible a fact; and we now proceed to lay them before the eyes of our readers. Sir Hudson Lowe was accompanied to St, Helena by Captain Sir Thomas Read, as Aide- de- camp, and Major ( now Lieut.- Colonel) Gorrequer, as Military Secretary. These two gentlemen partake, of course, next to Sir Hudson, . the honour of O'Meara's abuse ; almost every time that he mentions their names it is to cast some ridicule or odium upon them. Yet it is to these gentlemen that he yvos in the habit, volun- tarily, of addressing frequent notes, containing the intelligence which we are about to produce, and which, after all the surgeon's boasting of Sir Hudson's designs, and of his own high principles of honour, will astonish the world. In these notes, we see ho allusion to their being answers to any inquiries ; and several passages distinctly shew that they were O'Meara's own unprompted effusions. Nor were they what, can he called private; for the two officers seem to have had no private acquaintance with O'Meara, and the notes were generally addressed to them in their official characters. They usually began with some matter of business, and then the little anedotes—- specimens of which we are about to produce— were, as if ca- sually, slided in. The honourable minds of Sir Thomas Read and Col. Gorrequer never conceived the double treachery which O'Meara was practising, and they looked upon these anecdotes as the ordinary gossip of, a village doctor, and paid little attention to them, till the subsequent conduct and calumnies of O'Meara recalled them to recollection; and it was found that, by good luck, enough of this cor- respondence had been preserved to confound the writer. We have Sir Thomas Read's and Col. Gorrequer's authority for this statement, and the notes themselves are deposited in the hands of our publisher, to satisfy any one who might doubt the accuracy of our quota- tions, which, we confess, will be scarcely credible. * If this sum of 36,000 francs was, as it appears to have been, interest money, \ t would, at 4 per cent, which, we see, was the rate the 44 farmer" paid, prove a capital in the hands of one person alone of IK) 0,000 francs. proper and secret channel. It is obvious, that if Madame Bertrand could have a letter of invitation irregularly conveyed, she might equally well have had letters of another import; aud the practice once established, there would have been no limits to the correspondence : and no check whatsoever on Buo- naparte's intrigues. But was it, indeed, likely that Madame Bert rand's filial piety, and poor Las Cases's iiXoriousanxiety Were to be made the cover of acom- munication of Buonaparte'' s?— perhaps not likely, but it was so! the story of the mother and wife was all - A fable, and the whole was a device of Baorat- parte'* ow n to open a communication with the newly arrived Frenchman; and the best part of the affair is, that it Was O'Meara himself— the faithful, con. fidential, hignviuinded O'Meara— Who betrayed the plot, put: Sir find son Lowe on his guard against the frau'duleivt pretences of Madame Bertrand's letter. On the Very day that Madame Bertrand made him the confidante above stated, viz. oir the 6th July, he writes to Sir Thomas Read the following very different account of it:— 44 Madame Bertraod tohf tiVe this morning, that the letter she Wrote to Monchenu was at the express desire of Buonaparte himself repeated twice to her; and that in case he had come up, old Las Cases was to have immediately proceeded to her house in order to have an INTERVIEW with him. 44 if vou think Sir liu'- dson would like to know the above circumstances, you had better cowmniuicate them to him." Not a word of the mother— not a Word of t'b: 6 Wife — not the slightest allusion to ill- health & anxieties ; but a direct and clear warning to Sir Hudson Lowe to beware of the plot which Buonaparte had planned,- and to prevent the INTERVIEW— which word, in order to mark his own suspicions that an illegal interview was intended, O'Merira had written in great letters, and double- underlined. As Madame Bertrand's letter had been sent, pri- vately, this advice of O'Meara's was all that Sir ' Hudson Lowe could have known of the matter, and it is riot therefore surprising that he should have refused his sanction to the INTERVIEW, if ever, in- deed, his sanction was asked, which does not appear. What will O'Meara and his friends and admirers say to this I ^ •){• ^ 4S- We shall conclude this important topic by observ- ing, that Buonaparte's design in having this letter written was, probably,- not any hope he entertained of seducing M. de Monchenu, but the Act of Parlia- ment for regulating the intercourse at St. Helena had j ITS t arrived, and the Governor, in obedience thereto, had published a proclamation, forbidding ( except under certain specified regulations) any written communication between the detenus and the other inhabitants. It was to brave this proclamation that Buonaparte, immediately on its publication, desired, and, by repeated orders, obliged, Madame Bertraud to break the law and defy tlie Governor's authority ; and, with his usual artifice, he thought it would sound more cruel to have it said that it was the letter of a poor lady which was intercepted and, tb& t the letter itself might not want the sympathy of tender hearts— the fable of the wife, and the mother, and the ill- health, and the aWirz'e/ z/, Was iiilroduced. In short it is impossible to give a more sii- ikrug speci- men of the candour and simplicity of Bu4na » > ari « » , and of the honour and accuracy of O'Meara, than may be collected from a due consideration of the whole of this extraordinary transaction, which, by the fortunate preservation of O'Meara's note to Sir Thomas Read, we have been enabled thus to deve- lope. We need not ( indeed our limits would not permit it) extract the thousand passages in which O'Meara's publication repeats the complaints of tlie French upon their hard usage and ill- treatment; nearly half his book is composed of them; and all that Warden, Santini, Las Cases, and Montholon, have written on this point, is written with additional ve- hemence and exaggeration by O'Meara; but as to the truth of these complaints, and of the objects for which, and the spirit in which, they were made by Buonaparte and his followers, we have O'Meara's own evidence, in another of his precious notes to Sir Thomas Read, dated July 24,1816 :— 44 I understand from Madame Bertrand, that they ( the French) have it in contemplation to forward a letter of complaint against Sir Hudson Lowe, to England ( by what channel I do not understand), containing no doubt various CNTRUTHS, and praying that he may he recalled; you had better give Sir Hudson a hint about it ; but let it be between you and me only ; as, though I have some reason to think SOME PLOT is HATCHING, I am not quite sure of it, and any premature disclosure would not be the thingy Not the thing! elegant O'Meara!— And we beg- our readers to observe his anxiety lest any premature disclosure should disable liiui from detecting the progress of the plot. One is curious to know what this plot was, the hatching of which the close and trusty surgeon thus communicates;— what the?/ w- truths were of w hich his delicacy and honour ap- prise Sir Thomas Read. Our readers must remem- ber the famous letter written by Buonaparte himself, arid signed by Montholon. This letter is the au- thentic text book from which all the partizans of Buonaparte have drawn their facts of his ill- treat- ment; this letter was, we believe, the chief cause of Lord Holland's motion in the Lords, and furnished the main topics of his speech ; this letter, in short, is the authentic and official document in which are embodied all the hardships and grievances which O'Meara's publication repeats in a more colloquial and diffuse manner, but with greater vehemence of statement, and grosser violence of language— Well! this very letter is the very PLOT which O'Meara denounces ; and these very hardships and grievances are the very UNTRUTHS which he suspects to be in preparation.— He subsequently tells Sir Thomas Read— 44 I believe I was pretty accurate in the informa- tion I gave you about Montholon's letter [ these words are underlined by O'Meara's own handj. Montholon has been very busy finding out the price of every article used in the house, which he earefully committed to paper: he keeps a register of every article iu the eating and drinking way which arrives." itrefclied man himself' were alone concerned, we Should leave him; but truth and justice to others oblige us to proceed with the nauseous detail of the 44 malignity aud falsehood" of this 44 evil. disposed and cankered mind.''''— 44 I thank thee, Jew, for teaching me that word." Count Moiitholori's name lias been so interwoven with all this tissue of complaint against Sir Hudson Lowe, and his authoHt^ is so often referred to, that it is necessary to state O'Meara's confidential opinion of this person. In the publication ( vol. i. p. 363) O'Meara imputes to Sir Hudson Lowe, the having, ou the 31st of January, 1817, called Count Montholon a. liar. Now it happens that this was O'Meara's own designation of the Count, and was used by him to Sir Hudson LoWe, and not by Sir Hudson Lowe to him. In a note to Major Gor- ieqner, dated the 10th of October, 1816— several months prior to the imputed use of the word bv the Governor— having occasion to mention Montholon's name, he adds— 44 better known here ( viz. in Buona- parte's family) by the appellation of it buggiardo,— THE LIAR !" And again, in another letter to the same officer, 44 1 ( O'Meara) explained to Montholon— who, if he were not a COWARD and a LIAR, Would lie a fine fellow, and, abating these two little defects, is a perfect gentleman - that you were combining heaven and earth to lodge him and his amiable consort iu state, w hich he assented to, with several hypocritical grimaces aud professions of thanks."— Note of ' 21st June, 1816. We shall leave Count Montholon to settle with Mr. O'Meara the complimentary part of this information ; but. We must notice, that,. notwithstanding O'Meara explained, and Moutholon thankfully acknowledged that Major Gorrequer 44 was combining, heaven and ! earth to lodge him and his lady," we find in, the I Journal, uinter the date of September, 1;> 16, tlie i following grievous statement of their habitation :— 44 Count Montholmi called Captain Blakeney and myself this day to look at the state of his apartments ; the rooms, especially the countess's bed- room, the children's room, arid the bath- room, were in a shock- ing state, from the extreme humidity of the place ; the Walls were covered with green fur and mould, damp and cold to the touch, notwithstanding the fires which were continually kept in them. 1 never saw a human habitation iu a more mouldy or humid state; in Which opinion the orderly officer agreed." — Vol. ii. p. 210. It. is to be observed, that this 46 damp, cold, mouldy1' hovel had been the residence of the Lieut.. Governor of the island, who, with his lady, left it at two days' notice, for the reception of Buonaparte and hi$ suite; and since that period no trouble, no expense had been spared to extend and improve tlie accommodation: hut although in his hook it suits Mr. O'Meara to gi'Ve such a melancholy description, we find i'h another of his private notes, that Mon- t'holou's apartments were. so splendid, as to be an object of jealousy to the French. " Cipriani" [ the fellow who dropped his real name of Franceschi] 44 told Buonaparte, that Mon- fholon's house was more like a COURT —[ underlined by O'Meara himself]— than a private house, that it contained a magazine Of furniture ; and that when he could not find any thing else, so desirous was he of gia'ffiprg [ stealing] something, that he went out and laid5 hold of the Wood for fuel, and carried it with him' info'iii^ Store. Buonaparte sent for Mon- tholon immediately aftef, aud; they have been- since closeted togethei4 above three hours."—' Note of 1th . September, 1816. We are very far fro'nY being inclined fo iudge of Count Montholon from the reports of such persons as O'Meara and Cipriani £ but i'u weighing the accuracy aud authenticity of O'Meara's publication, it is impossible not to observe upon such assertions as the foregoing, that the liar, and coward,• and plunderer, of the private notes, isa disinterested hero in the public work ; and, what is the most ridiculous rapprochement of all, it is to this proverbial LIAR, as he designates Count Montholon, that the writer refers, in his preface, for his own veracity. It is painful to be obliged to repeat these personalities, but the exposure of O'Meara requires it, and truth and justice require the exposure of O'Meara. We trust that a similar apology will be accepted for the statements we are about to make. It is odious to us to bring the names of ladies before the public in any way that may he unpleasant to their feelings ; but justice to the authorities at St. Helena, and to the British nation itself, obliges us to state that this man, who accuses Sir Hudson Lowe of making 44 common- place observations on the delicacy of French ladies," ( vol. ii. p. 338), and who tnak- es a still grosser charge of indelicacy on the part of Sir Thomas Head ( vol. i. p. 219) is, as in the former ca « e, the persou really guilty of what he imputes to others ; and that he not only makes in detail the identical observations whitdi he- charges in general terms iipon Sir Thomas Read ; but betrays, in the most delicate points, the secrets, even the medical secrets, of his female patients, and defames, with the grossest im- putations, the personal honourofat least one of them. Our respect for female feelings and public decency forbid us to enter into these revolting details; but the letters which our pen refuses to copy are lying before us, and shall be communicated to Counts Bertrand and IVJoiltholon, if they ever condescend to take any notice of such unmanly calumnies. Here we pause to ask our readers, whether we have not redeemed the pledge we gave at the begin- ning of this article ?— whether any man alive can now give the slightest credit, to O'Meara's work? whether its author ought not to be overwhelmed with shame ; whether his partizans are not covered with ridicule ; whether there ever has been so com- bat which we imperial $ arlfamettt. plete, so ignominious an exposure as th have inflicted on the luckless O'Meara? BANKERS' PARCELS.— A friend ( says the Editor of the Bristol Journal) has favoured us with a copy of the following Memorial, which it is in contemplation to present to the Lords of the Treasury, for the purpose of more effectually securing the safety of Bankers' parcels. We rea- dily give it insertion, having within the last year reported to our readers some serious losses which have been sustained from the insecure conveyance of Cash Notes by Coaches, and knowing that the object prayed for is one of vast importance, not only to the Bankers of the Kingdom, but to its trade generally. A Petition so respectfully worded, and holding out, as it does, a reasonable expecta- tion that an increase of the Post Office Revenue vyill result from a compliance with it, caiinot fail, we think, to receive the friendly consideration of his Majesty's Ministers:— 44 To the Lords Commissioners of bis Majesty's Treasury. The Memorial of the undersigned Bankers. HOUSE OF COMMONS— TUESDAY. INSOLVENT ACT. Mr. PANTON CORBETT presented a petition from the Town of Shrewsbury against the Insolvent Act. — The Hon, H. G. BENNET supported the" petition. SMAI. L DEBTS. Lord ALTHORP, after a few remarks upon the great advantage that would arise to the public from a more cheap and speedy mode of recovering small debts, and after alluding to the method pursued in Scotland, where debts to the amount of £ 5 were obtained by summary process before two magistrates, moved for a select committee to inquire into the mode in which debts amounting" to less than £ 15 Were recovered in England and Wales.— Mr. WARRE seconded the mo- tion.— Mr. LITTLETON thought that the magistrates of England would object to exercising such a juris- diction as the noble lord seemed to propose.— Lord ALTHORP explained, that lie did not intend lo re- commend the Scotch system, hut merely to throw it out as one of the points for the consideration of the committee.— The committee was then appointed. CATHOLIC QUESTION. Sir JOHN NEWPORT submitted to Mr. Plunkett the propriety of postponing his promised motion for Catholic emancipation for two months, so as to allow the House to recover a proper temper for that calm discussion which the subject deserved; but. which recent transactions in Ireland had rendered unat- tainable at present.— Mr. CANNING concurred in the opinion that a discussion in the present temper of the House would be injurious to the interests of the Catholics, aud Mr. PLUNKETT acquiesced, expres- ing, however, his regret at the disappointment which the postponement of the discussion must occasion to several of his friends whom he had solicited to attend it.— The motion was then fixed for the 17th of April. BANK OF ENGLAND Mr. GRRNFELL moved for certain Papers connected With the Bank of England.— He said that Ihe object of his motion was to shew that the balances of public money in the hands of the Bank were productive of an undue profit to that establishment, and proportionality injurious to the public credit. He added also, that £ 270,000, the sum paid annually to the Bank, for the Management of the. Public Debt, was far too liberal a payment.— Mr. MANNING and Mr. BARING defended Ihe right of the Bank to the profit of the balances, as having been contemplated and paid for when the Bank purchased its Charter— Mr. RI- CA R DO, Mr. MABERLY, and Mr. HUME:, coincided in Mr. Grenfell's views, and the motion was agreed to without the express assent of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, HOUSE OF LORDS- WEDNESDAY. MARRIAGES. The Bishop of CHESTER gave notice, that he should move a clause in the New Marriage Act, for the purpose of permitting banns to be published and marriages to be solemnized in all chapels of ease under the jurisdiction of the Church of England. The Archbishop of CANTERBURY observed, that the late Act had taken away from Surrogates the power of granting licenses; from an ignorance of that clause, surrogates had continued lo grant licenses ; lie should, therefore, move iii> tbe New Act a clause to render valid the marriages so contracted, and to indemnify the surrogates. HOUSE OF COMMONS— WEDNESDAY. LIEUTENANT- GENERAL OF ORDNANCE, IVJr. LLUME, after a speech representing the great expense, & c. of the Ordnance Department, concluded bv moving that the recent appointment of Lord Still ia'rn Beresford to the office of Lieut - General of the Ordnance, was not essential to the. public service, in contradiction to the recommendation of the Commissioners of Military Inquiry, at variance With the professions of economy made by Ministers, and inconsistent With a due consideration of the present situation of the country, which requires every possible reduction of expense. Mr. R. WARD Opposed the motion, and shewed that the opinion rif the Commissioners was directly the reverse of what Mr. Hume had stated, and that the place of Lieufenant- General of the Ordnance was one that required' constant attendance and applica- tiotf. Mr. CANNING also opposed the motion, and, in reply to the former statement of Mr. Hume that the place was a sinecure and conferred on Lord William Beresford for the Ministerial services of his family, re- stated that the place had been previously offered to Lord Hopetoun, and then to Lord Hill, He had been favoured with the. letter sent by the Duke of Well i ng'fi) n ft'oni Vieuna to Lord H i I!,- and it won 1 < V show that . the place was not looked upon as, sinecure. The letter ( which lie read to the Ho ran thus ;. 44 MY DEAR HILL— You are aware of the death oP the late Lieutenant- Genera! of the Ordnance. It will be a pleasure to me, if you will allow me to recommend you to his Majesty. The office is Worth about £ 1500 per annum; but the business is con-. slant, and I am afraid will render your residence in London necessary for the greater portion of the year; and perhaps for the whole of it." In his answer, Lord Hill, after returning his Grace his sincere and hearty thanks, observed, that lie thought, under all the circumstances, he had better decline the offer ; that he bad never been accus- tomed, to office duty; that he feared he should ill pjerform the services required of him ; and that his permanent residence in town would most materially affect his health.--- Lord Hill having thus declined the situation, it was conferred on Lord William Beresford. Mr. M. VCDONALD wished Mr. Ilnme to withdraw his motion, but Mr. CANNING said he would not permit that course to be adopted.— On - a division, Mr. Hume's niolion was negatived by a majority of 200 to 73. Mr. Tierney, Mr. Brougham, and Lord J. Russell left the House before the division; and Mr. Mac. dotiald, Mr. Abercrombie, Mr. Rice, Mr. Gten- fell, Mr. Leycester, Lord Norma » iby, and several other leading Members of Opposition, who waited the division, voted iu the majority against Mr. Hume's motion. The Rev. C. A. Bellis ( brother- in- law to the Bishop of London), since his late induction to the Rectory of Paglesham, Essex, has, it is stated, most liberally accepted a composition for his tithes for the present year, at the offers made by the parish* rioners themselves, being 36 pet ceftt. below thcif former payment to his predecessfOf. 1 ROBBERY OF THE CHELTENHAM BANK.—^* The Cheltenham Chronicle of Thursday last says—* 44 We lament to state that a most daring rohberj/ was committed on the Bank of Messrs. Turner and Co. which was entered by means of false keys, and property to no very considerable amount carried off' from the safe. In order to accomplish their pur- pose the thieves had to unlock live doors, all of which they again fastened, and left the Bank ap- parently as secure, as if it had never been entered. An officer has arrived from Bow- Street, whose endeavours, aided by our very vigilant police, will 110 doubt lead to the detection, and ultimate capi- tal punishment of the Offenders. The robbery must have been committed on Saturday night, as the thief presented himself at the Bank of Messrs. Esdaile and Co. London, on Monday morning, with notes to the amount of One Thousand Pouuds, for which he immediately received one Bank of England note for that amount, posted away, and received one thousand sovereigns; this sum, with four hundred pounds in Exchequer Bills, is the total amount of his success in securing his ill got- ten booty—- as all other notes, & c. are stopl, and he has left some promissory bills for acceptancc, endorsed by him iu the name of Smithsoii, promis- ing to call again on Monday nexf.— We persuade ourselves there is but little doubt of the villain's speedy detection." There are two good articles regularly given in Monday's Edition of The Obsei ver ; one is a fuller and more detailed account of the prices ami state of the London Coi n and Flour Market than is usually given. The other article is the Price of Stocks, which is not merely confined lo the prices, but con- tains very full explanations of l& e causes of the fluctuations in both the British and tile Foreign Funds, This Edition of the Observer is well adapted for Country readers. If iV published iif London every Monday evening in time for that day's post. The price is Eight Shillings aud Two- pence the Quarter. On Thursday a most numerous meeting of the most respectable Solicitors of Ihe metropolis, as- sembled at the Crown and Anchor Tavern, in the Strand, for the purpose of adopting sach measures with respect to the Gentlemen of the Bar, in the highest practice in the Court of Chancery, as might lead to a more effectual performance of their duty to their clients, than has taken place since the establish- ment of the Vice- Chancellor's Court. There were upwards of 250 of the profession present. Mr. Le Blanc was unanimously called to the chair. The principal members stated what had been long matter of complaint amongst Chancery Solicitors, but to which the public attention never before was called, that the proverbial delays in the Court of Chancery were greatly increased, and the expenses of suitors alarmingly augmented by the manner in which the Chancery business was transacted by the leading Counsel at ihe bar. It uas usual for a King's Counsel, after making a speech in Ihe Couit of Chancery, to jiop off to the Vice- Chancellor's Court, and there to make another speech ; after which lie perhaps ran down to the House of Lords, or back to the Court of Chancery, without making himself acquainted with the arguments on the opposite side, or doing any thing further for the lie refit of his client. The consequence of such a mode of dis- posing of the important trust reposed in I fie hands of Chancery solicitors was excessively injurious. The complaint comprehended aii almost total carelessness as to the event of the cases in which the Counsel were retained, and the solicitors were hound, in justice to the public, and for the sake of their own reputation, to interfere, for the prevention of a practice which aggravated the burdens of the law by creating expense, which in many instances was not recompensed by a single effort. It was notorious that leading Counsel Walked from one Court to the other, and kept the fees they received in. cages which were going on fit the same moment in both Courts, being an established principle w ith fbem never to ^ tufvi- a fee, to whatever motive their absence from • the Court, in which their attendance might be of vital importance to suitors, should be attributable. It became necessary therefore to adopt means of remedying inconveniences and vexations of thi* description, for the purpose of accomplishing which the assistance of all solicitors whose practice com- prehended the Chancery Court was necessary. The conduct of the bar alluded to was compared to that of an actor engaged at two different places of public entertainment, say Coven! Garden and Drury Lane Theatres. Only anxious To do w hat was specifically required1, he cared not about what followed at the theatre he left, but proceeded* to Sing a new song and then walked off as careless as before. Under such circumstances the measure w hich suggested itself as most advisable was the appointment, of a Committee, to consider the propriety of sec'uri'rtg justice to their clients by employing those Gentlemen of the Bar only who would attend strictly to the business placed in their hands, and Were determined not to divide their attention between the Courts in sueH a manner as to give cause of complaint to th'Ose whose interests depended so much upon the talent and care of tluv Advocates.— Resolutions to this effect were imme- diately agreed lo. The Committee Will report to a General Meeting of the Solicitors. The Meeting, separated, after a motion of thanks to Mr, lie Blanc for his conduct in the Chair. We must here interrupt our spy to observe, that his own publication registers the grievances iii 44 the eating and drinking way," with as much detail as Montholon could have done, and, we believe, with equal truth; and throughout his work, as we already observed, he confirms, with all his force, Montholon's statements, which on his private notes he had characterised as untruths. Witness the fol- lowing extract from his journal of the 10th of July, 1816:— 44 A great deficiency has existed for several days in the quantity of wine, fowls, and other necessary articles— wrote to Sir Thomas Read about it."— Vol. i. p. 71. Here, at last, is one word of truth; He did write to Sir Thomas Read about it— but mark what follows. The letter to Sir Thomas Read has been most for- tunately preserved, and in it is found, after the statement of the deficiency, the following paragraph : 44 They ( the French) are sufficiently MALIGNANT to. impute all those things to the Governor; instead of setting them down as being owing to the neglect of some of Balcombe's ( tlie purveyor's) people. Every little circumstance is carried directly to Buo- naparte, with every aggravation that MALIGNITY and FALSEHOOD can suggest to evil- disposed and cankered in i nd. s." Need we write another syllable ? 44 Out of thy own moulh shalt thou be judged'" and here, if the 44 Respectfully Sheweth, 44 That your Memorialists in the course of their business as Bankers issue, under an annual license, Cash Notes which are re- issuable and payable at the Houses of their respective Correspondents in London, and which said Notes bear a heavy ad valorem Stamp Duty. 44 That when the re- issuable Notes have been so paid in London, your Memorialists are deterred from having them returned to their several Banking Houses iu the Country through the medium of the Post Office by the present rate of Postage Duty. 4t That your Memorialists also receive in the course of business re- issuablc Cash Notes payable only at the Banking Houses where they are issued ;• and that they are in the habit of transmitting these, in large amounts, for settlement, from one pro- vincial Banking House to another, which they are likewise prevented from doing through the medium of the Post Office by the present rate of Postage Duty. 44 That owing to this impediment, several of your Memorialists have incurred, and all of them are more or less liable to incur, considerable pecuniary injury from the loss of parcels containing Cash Notes, which are often stolen in the process of transmission, notwithstanding the great care and caution of your Memorialists. 44 That the long continued and systematic depre- dations upon the property of Bankers are not only injurious to your Memorialists, but are also em- barrassing to Trade, and the source of much public alarm and inconvenience. 44 That under these circumstances your Memorial- ists respectfully solicit your protection and consider- ation, and your Lordships' consent for such a Re- duction of the Postage Duty, so far as it regards the transmission of Cash Notes by Bankers, as would enable your Memorialists to send them through the medium of the Post Office; and they would further respectfully state, that they are of opinion, that a compliance With their request, would not only be the means of giving them a protection from which they are at present precluded, but would also afford greater facilities to Trade, and considerably increase the amount of the Post Office Revenue." The Madrid Papers of the 7th install.!, state that the Speech of the French King had arrived there, and was regarded as a declaration of war. ft was communicated to the Cortes on the 5th instant by a royal message, and to the message were sub- joined a series of propositions, having for their object to accelerate and extend the preparations of the military service. On the 6th a project of decree was discussed for giving efficacy to the ministerial demands of the day preceding. The existing es- tablishment of the Army being about 87,000 men, the first article of the decree proposes an imme- diate addition of 29,973 men, to be drawn, as before, from all the provinces of Spain, according to their population. Young men who have com- pleted their 17th year may be admitted as substi- tutes, or as volunteers. Soldiers who have already served may be re- enlisted by the Government; and this provision is by the 9th article of the decree made to extend to foreigners. The Militia is to be rendered disposable. The importation of arms, atnmuqition, & c. is to be authorised; 200 gun- boats to be fitted out and manned, for the defence of coasts and harbours. The active Militia was calculated by Seuor Romeiro at 58,000 men. A few days ago a pulilis meeting of Geiiiicmeiv interested in the formation of a " General Steam Vessel Company," took place at the London Tavern, ljishopsgate- strfet. wlien it was determined to raise a capital of £ 300,000 by 150 shares of £ 2000 each, to be called for by instalments. Twenty- four vessels to be purchased, or built by the Company, to be of the best construction for saffciy, strength, and rate of going. Steam power, to the, extent of eighty horses, to be applied to each essel, wiiJl which it is proposed to trade from - ondon lo C'a'ais, Ostcnd, Rotterdam, IIamino'— Dover to Kouiog'ue— Brighton to Dieppe— South- ampton to Havre— 1' Southampton to Guernsey » ncj Jersey— London to i'iymoath— Plymouth to Bour- deaux, Bilboa, Coruntca, and Lisbon. Jamaica papers to the 15th of December have been received. They contain a very spirited Pro. test by Sir C. Rowley, the British Commander on the West India station, against the Decree of the Spanish Royalist General Morales, relative to foreigners in the service, or resident in the territo- ries, of the Colombian Republic. The Admi protests, in the name of the British Government, against the execution of this decree on the persons or property of British subjects, and declares that he shall feel himself hound to demand reparation for any injury which they may receive at the hands of the Royalist commander. He also protests against the paper blockade of the whole Colombian coast, as established by Morales, and stales it will be his duty to protect such British vessels as may fall under the meaning of that part of the decree. The Admiral fiually concludes, by demanding of the Royalist General restitution of the British " pro. perty condemned hy him at Maracaybo, on the late capture of that province, and expresses some in- dignation at the violation of faith on Ihe part of the Spanish Chief, in the sequestration of British property, after having promised it should be re- spected. The protest is couched in very energetic language, and is dated on board his Majesty's ship Sybille, in Port Royal Harbour, Dec. 5, 1822. On the 10th instant, John Wrottesley, Esq. was called to the degree of Barrister at- Law, by the Honourable Society of Lincolu's Inn, The three Noblemen who formed Ihe Minority on the Amendment proposed hv Lord Stanhope to the Address in answer to his iljajesty's Speech, have entered the following Protest against the Ad- dress on the Journals of the House of'Lords:— " DISSENTIENT, " 1st. Because it is at all limes the < fi. 1v of Parliament toexamine and redress public grievances, and that duty is most urgent at the present moment,, when the country is afflicted with severe aud un- exampled distress. 2d. Because Ihe nation has a right toe^ peet that the causes of the present distress shall lie immediately examined, shall he fully ascertained, and shall, a'j speedily as possible, he removed. " 3d. Because the investigation of the subject cannot be delayed without injury and injustice to those who suft'er, and without the utmost dang- r to the country, of which the welfare ninst lie destroyed, and of which the tranquillity may be disturbed, by 3 continuance of the present calamities. " 4th. Because this House ought also lo exa, m, ra. e, ' the results that have arisen from altering tiie vafii<> of the currency,' as that measure has very consider- ably diminished the prices ( if all produce, and verv considerably increased the burden of the taxes which have been imposed, and of the engagements which have been contracted. " 5th. Because the subject of w hich the immediate examination was proposed is of vital importance, as it affects directly all the owners and occupiers ofi land, and indirectly all the other interests of the country.
