Now seizing poor Puss, to the bright Boot he bore her, The Monkey, her shadow then gleaming before her, Ami answer'd her struggles with chatter and blows, Her phiz while he soap'd from her ears to her nose! The Cat, thus essaying in vain at resistance, And mewing, in pitiful plaint, for assistance, With wonder the same operation now saw, Pefform'd in, or shewn by the Jet of eclat! In front of the Boot then, as if to explain it, The method of shaving, how best to attain it, The act interspersing with grin and grimace, The Ape clear'd the Cat of each hair on her face ; Ami strange though it seems, yet the frolicsome elf Was much more successful with Puss than himself. The Shaver adroitly concluding his scraping! — The Shaved with the loss of her whiskers escaping!— The Monkey in triumph the Parlour now sought, And Cat and bright Boot to a company brought, Who saw what this barber had then been about, And hail'd his essay with a rapt urous shout Of mirthful surprise : the strange incident hacking The merits of WARREN'S unparalleled Blacking.

THIS Office was established in the Year 1797, by a numerous and respectable Proprietary; and the Board of Directors, with Con- fidence, arising- from the increased Prosperity and Permanency of the Establishment, as well as from the Experience of its Usefulness and Benefit to the Public, think it due to those who may he still unac- quainted with the Importance and Advantages of Life Insurance^ briefly to suggest some of its leading- and peculiar Recommendations to almost eveiy Rank in Society. Life Insurance is of manifest Consequence to all who hold Estates for Life* Situations and, Offices* Civil, Ecclesiastical, or Professional ; to Officers in the Army and Navv, & c. as, by Payment of an Annual Premium, tiie Party insured is enabled to provide for Wife, Children, or others, whose future Welfare he may wish in vain, by other Means, to promote. It affords a permanent Ultimate Security to those wfio advance Money upon Annuities or otherwise. It renders Leases, determinable on one or more Lives, nearly equal in Value to Freehold Estates, as an Insurance to the Amount nf the Fine, payable on the Demise of a Party nominated to such Leases, will produce the Snfn required for the! Renewal. It is a cheering Refuge to Paities en- gaged in extensive and speculative Undertakings ; it affords to Persons in Trade the certain Means of Indemnification against a bad or doubtful Debt; in short. Life Insurance, established iu Policy, sanc- tioned by Government, and confirmed by the Test of Experience, is become, to almost every Situation in Human Life, a Measure equally important, useful, and beneficial. Annuities are granted upon the most equitable Terms, under a special Act of Parliament granted to this Office. THOMAS PARKE, Secretary.

SIR,— Permit me to return you my most grateful thanks for the great benefit 1 have received frohl your ANTISCORBUTIC DROPS. Some years ago a small pimple made its appearance just below the knee of my left leg: not considering it of any consequence, I paid no attention to it 1' or some tirtte, but finding it gradually to iuerease I began to be nlartued, and applied to a medical gen- tleman in this town for relief, but all his endeavours to stop the ravages of the disease were fruitless, for the nicer continued to spread till it extended from the knee to the ancle. I was now reduced t « » ( he last extremity, being scarcely able to walk across the rooin< aud knew not where to turn for relief. On Ihe recommendation of some friends, who had experi- enced or heard of the efficacy of your Antiscorbutic Dropsy 1 determined on giving them a trial. At first my leg got much worse, and, I believe, hut for ilie persuasion of my friends, 1 should have given the medicine up; !. however, persevered, and can now inform you, my leg is quite well, and has remained so for nearly twelve months Any enquiries will |> e answered by, Sir, Your obedient humhle servant, MARTHA BAXTER* Shopkeeper, Snow hill.

HOUSE OF COMMONS— FRIDAY. Mr. BR OIK* HA ML moved tor leave to introduce the Rill for the sale of Beer. He did not design to urge the measure further until after the recess, as lie hoped that in the . mean time the subject would be taken up by Ministers. T- THB CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER declined going into the details of the measure which he proposed to introduce ; he wolJ'd, however, say this much, that its purpose was to give to the poor a better and a cheaper beverage than they can now obtain. Mr. CANNING, in answer to a question from Mr. BROUGHAM, said, that the hopes which Ministers had entertained of accommodating the differences between France and Spain had been greatly dimi Dished, but were not quite extinguished. Mr. Mabefily 1 fi resolutions for suspending the operation of the Sinking Fund, and for effecting a reduction of the National Debt, by a new plan for the redemption of the [. and Tax, were negatived by a division of 157 to 72. They were opposed by the CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER, Mr. RI- CA ft no, Mr. HUSKISSON, and Mrv BARING, the latter of whom designated the proposition as the lightest bubble that, ever was blown. Mr. W. L. MABERJ^ V and Mr. TIERNEY spoke in their favour. LON D ON^ sTnjK D AY. The Paris Papers of Tuesday contain an im- portant debate which took place in the Chamber of Deputies on that and the preceding day, upon the proposed grant of 100 millions ( francs) for ex- traordinary servicesbut the great question was the invasion of Spain: and it appears manifest from the speeches of the Ministers, that the French Government persists in its warlike resolutions. VVe subjoin extracts which are unequivocally hostile : In the debate on Monday, M. de Villele made a long and forcible oration to shew the necessity there existed for France to proceed to hostilities without delay, On Tuesday, the subject being continued, M. de Chateaubiiaiul addressed the Chamber to the following purport : Alluding strongly to the in- terference of tiie English iu the affairs of France at the beginning of the Revolution, he exclaimed, " If it has been permitted to England to repel French Contagion^ shall we be forbidden to repel Spanish Contagion ! England still acknowledged this principle ; she acknowledged that Austria had the right of destroying at Naples the Constitution of the Cortes." He then proceeded thus : " We are really in a situation which gives us the right of interference. Our political interests ave compro- mised, the revolution of ." Spain has destroyed a part of our commerce, and we are obliged to keep up « bjps of war to protect what remains. The War in Spain, by interrupting our relations with Spain, has reduced to halt its value the land in the depart- ments bordering on Spain. A great number of manufactures have lost their vent in Spain; oiir Consuls have been threatened in their persons ; iti fine,, our territory has been violated three times.— ffvlunnurs on the hfu) — WAR IS THEN INDIS- PENSABLE! It is preferable to this state of demi- hostilities, which has all the inconveniences of war without its advantages, and which exposes our soldiers to all insinuations of the agents of disorder. The violation of our territory is enough to justify our armed intervention. England herself declared at Verona— Lord Wellington said there, that the King, his master, had no objection to make to the measures of France towards the Spaniards, and especially those to guard against the. moral conta- gion of political principles and the violation of the French territory. — M. de Chateaubriand concluded by observing '" that the King wished 100,000 soldiers to assemble under the command of a Prince, who at the passage of LE DROMS shewed himself frank like Henry IV. He has confided the white was confined to insanity; that lie bad seen Lord P. whose case ia a perfectly unsound state of mind, which incapacitates him for managing hisown affairs. I Mr. Adam now cominmeneed summing up for Lord Portsmouth ; after which the Court adjourned. Yesterday, ( the 17th Day,) Mr. Adam concluded bis address, Mr. Wetherell followed with an eloquent speech in support of the Petition, and the Chief Commissioner summed up in a very lucid manner.— The Jury, after retiring an hour, returned an unani- mous verdict—" 7? Aat John Charles Earl of-' Ports- mouth, is a man ofunsound mind and condition, and incapa'de of • managing himself and his af'aiis; and that, he has been so from 1.9/ of Jan. 1809." Thus has ended a tedious Commission, which, ac- cording to the assertion of one of the Jurors, has cost no less than two guineas a minute. POSTSCRIPT. LONDON, Monday Wight, March 3, 1823. The intelligence received this day from Madrid is most important. On the 20th ult. Ferdinand, by a formal decree, dismissed bis Ministers, but he was compelled to reinstate them in their offices, under the influence of the mob of Madrid, who surround- ed tlie Palace, uttering the most sanguinary threats against. the Monarch. The national militia, who were on guard at. the Palace, dispersed the mob, aud saved the King's life.— A crisis in the affairs of Spain is manifestly at'hand. By the French Papers received to- day, we learn, that two more days of stormy debate have taken place in the French Chamber of Deputies, on the proposition for expelling M. Manuel ; and the question has been again adjourned. The fluctuations in the Funds to day have been very great. Our Private Correspondent informs us,' that at the close, the prices were — New 4 per Cent*. 93— Old ditto 92|— 3i per Cent. 85*— Re- duced 73J— Consols 73i- Spanish Bonds are dowu to 29}.

Trevor, starting from Pradoe, the seat of the Hon. Thomas Kenyon, to a place appointed near Ne'sscliff, a dista. ice of 4 miles.—- The former to ride his c. hesunt horse, Beppo, lately purchased front William Lloyd, Esq. of Aston, for - 200 guineas, and the latter his well known iriare, Lady Jane.— II will be remembered that Mr, Trevor has been successful against Mr. Mytton, with this mare, 011 the turf": but Mr'. Mytton is backed at high odds to win, being so A- ell known as a hard aud good rider across country. HUNTING.— It is rumoured Ihat revolutions are about to take place in several of llie leading fox- hunting establishments. Worcestershire will cer- tainly become vacant; Mr. Walker declines the Hamhletou Country ; and we are, sorry to hear it reported tliat the Warwickshire Hounds are likely to lie given up.— Sir Thomas Mostytl gives his nephew, Mr. Mostyn Lloyd, three thousand guineas a- year lo lake his celebrated pack, which will, of course, con- tinue to hunt the Bicester country.— Sporting Ma. gazine. I We perceive that the extensive aitd valuable Racing Stud of the Right Hon. the Earl of Stamford, is advertised to be soli! I> v private contract : from which we infer Ihat the Noble Earl is about to lelire from the Turf— a circumstance which, we doubt not, will excite the regret of Ihe Amateurs of Racing Fox Huni'mej in Warwickshire. [ FTFOM THE SPOUTING MAOAZINE.] Whoever has been at school, has heard of the Trojan war, and who over has hunted in- Warwick- shire has heard of " the blood of the Trojans/-' which was a standing toast in thtit coifntry When Mr. CORUFT hunted it, and was always drank after " The ICing," in the club- room at Sfratford- on- Avon. The hero, from whom tbes « modern softs of 111011 were descended, was one of the best FOX- HOUNDS that ever challenged on a fox. Old Trojan was bred by Mr. Corbet, was entered in 1782, and hunted nine seasons. He would never look at a hare ; aud would speak only to a fox, a martin cat, or a pheasant. In chase he was as perfect as nature coula make him. With the nose of a blood- hound, his pace was a killing one ; and, as a proof of his powers in chase, Mr. Corbet has often' been heard to say, that be was the only hound he ever had who could leap Chilling- ton Park wall after a fox. It appears that Air. Corbet's hounds found a very dark- coloured fox, in Chiilington Park, the seat Staindrop ( the M........ V.. U. ; ~ ,.

' Flic Paris Papers of Thursday have been received by express. Oil Wednesday the resumed debate oil the question of peace or war closed in ail abrupt and most tumultuous manner.-— The discussion was commenced by Gen. Partooneaux, who argued in support of war. 51. Manuel next spoke in oppo- sition, and in endeavouring to shew that the in- vasion of Spain would increase whatever danger Ferdinand might be exposed to, made use of ihe following expressions :— " Must I say that the moment ill. which the dan- gers of the Royal Family of France had become tlie most serious was afterFrance, revolutionary France, felt that it was necessary to defend herself by new- strength aud by an energy wholly new?" This sentence was interpreted by the right side to fee an approbation of regicide, and a most frightful scene of confusion ensued. All the efforts of the President were ineffectual to appease the tumult, and amidst loud cries of " turn him out," " down with the base man," " down with the apologist of regicide," & c. he was at length compelled to dis- miss the Members to their separate bureaux. They assembled again in the course of an boor, when a motion was made for the expulsion of M. Manuel from the House ; but being irregular, its discussion was put off to the following day, when the propo- sition will be again brought forward.— The Cham- ber adjourned without entering further into public business. A courier arrived onThursday night from Madrid, with accounts dated the 18th ult. We understand that the Cortes have passed a decree for the removal of the King ami the Infantas toCorunna. Mediation is no longer talked of, and all negotiations are con- sidered as at an end. Mr. Sergeant Hullock was this morning sworn in as one of the Barons of the Conrl of'Exchequer, in the room of Mr. Baron Wood, who has retired.

CONCLUSION OF THE PORTSMOUTH CASE.— A jjreat number of most respectable witnesses have been examined this week, in support of the sanity of Lord Portsmouth. The result of their testimony was, that, though his Lordship's general character was that of imbecility, yet they did not consider him insane; anil they thought him capable of superintending his concerns with the assistance of sound and disinter- ested advice. On Tuesday, Dr. Bankhead, an eminent physician, stated, that he iliil not consider his Lordship a man of unsound uiintl : he really believed, that if Lord P. were under tiie protection of humane persons, he would be us well able to attend to the management of liis own affairs as any man. Oil Wednesday the Court further examined Lord Portsmouth ; after which they adjourned till next day, Ou Thursday, Dr. Monro stated, that bv au order of the Lord Chancellor lie visited Lord P. for the purpose of ascertaining whether his Lordship was of sound mind or not. He was introduced to his Lord- ship under an assumed name, had frequent conversa- tion with him, and did not hesitate to affirm that his Lordship was both a madman and a fool. Most cer- tainly he was not capatile of managing his ow n affairs. Dr. F. Willis, grandson of the celebrated Physician » ,' that name, was next called. He said hi « piactice Right Hon. the Earl of Darlington. The Noble Earl and Couuless, with Lord Barnard, General Meyrick, and the rest of the family and friends at Raby, were all present at the ceremony ; after which they partook of a most sumptuous dejeune at Raby Castle, and the happy pair set out in their travelling. carriage for the South.

By the numerous cottagers upon hit work, and hv all who were employed under him, his death will he long and sincerely lamented ; to thein he was ever a kind and libera! benefactor; under his auspices and protection many are the individuals who have risen from poverty to a com- fortable independence; and in times of severe distress and distressed trade he was ever found at his post supporting and creating employ for bun dreus of his fellow creatures. By his immediate circle of friends his memory will be cherished with the fondest recollection, as long as the character of a good and worthy mail holds its due rank in the estimation of the world.

SMALL DEBTS.— In our last Journal, under Parliamentary Intelligence, we noticed that Lord Allhorpe had moved for 11 Select Committee lo en- quire into the mode in which debts amounting to less than £ 15 were recovered in England and Wales; and that a Committer was- appointed for such purpose.— It is his Lordship's intention to propose a measure for the more cheap and speedy recovery of such debts ; and we are pleased lo find that a meeting was held al the Guildhall in this town, on Friday last, ( Samuel llarley, Esq, in the chair,) w hen several Resolutions were'passed ( see Advert.) and it was agreed that petitions in support of Lord Althorpe's motion should he presented to both Houses of Parliament. From a letter written by his Lordship, and read at the meeting, it appears lliat lie lias very powerful opponents, and that his only cfilfncc of success de- pends upon his getting powerful support by petitions fromjthe country, The advantages of an Act of that description are too well known to need pointing out, and tlie importance of it to persons concerned in business " ill, we have no doubt, be the means of getting the petition numerously and respectable signed" in this town, and, we trust, obtain similar petitions from every town in the kingdom. Neither of Ihe members for Shrewsbury are upon the Select Committee ; but we have reason to believe Ihat both will he put upon it.— The Hon. H. G. Bennet has had some conversation with Lord Althorpe 011 the subject, and lie and Panton Corbet), Esq. have staled tliev shall give it their best attention. The eldest son of George Brooke, Esq. of Haugliton Hall, iu this county, having lately at tained I113 majority, the tenantry and friends of that gentleman celebrated the event, in the pa risbes of Shiffnal and Sutton Maddock, on the 17th ult. The morning was ushered iu by the the ringing of bells, which continued at intervals during the whole of the day. A liberal subscription having been enteied into, 2 beeves, 25 sheep, and between 300 aud 400 gallons of ale were pui chased, and judiciously distributed, with a proportionate quantity of bread, to the poor families in the vicinity. The principal portion of the tenantry, several of the neighbouring gentry, and other re- spectable individuals, friends of the family, dined together at the Jerninghain Arms, and tpent the evening in the greatest conviviality. A Band of Music attended, and added considciably to the hilarity of the evening. FAIRS TO BE IIOLDF. N.

CHESTER FAIR.— At the great born and hoof fair, held on Thursday, there was a tolerable shew of horses ; prime ones fetched a good price, and there was a general improvement iu prices. Of horned cattle, swine, and sheep, there was a plentiful supply, nud it was obvious, that an advance in their value had taken place. There is, indeed, an advance in ail kinds of stock, as well as of grain. WAREHOUSED CORN AND FLOUR— The quantity of Corn and Grain warehoused under the Act 55th Geo. III. c. 20, and remaining in the said warehouses 011 the 5th of January last, was 803,964 quarters and 1 bushel; ditto of Meal and Flour 77,193 cwts. 3qrs. 71bs. The Liverpool Advertiser says—" Oporto is now open to the admission of foreign grain ; about 1600 tons had arrived; but such is the extent of the wants of the country that it produced little or 110 impression on the markets. It is expected that Lisbon will also be opened. Barcelona, we have reason to believe, is likewise open. There is 110 doubt but that scarcity exists in all the provinces of Spain and Portugal, BO that otir warehoascs will soen be relieved of bonded grain." WALES, DIED.

WELSH CHARITY.— On Sat unlay the Society of Ancient Britons, in London, held, their 109th Anniversary, in Freemason's Hall, when upwards of 300 gentlemen sat down to dinner ; tlie Right Hon. C. W. W. Wynn was in the Chair; Lord Kenyon, with many other distinguished friends of the Principality, were present. It was announced that the subscriptions of His Majesty to this ex- cellent charity had amounted to £ 6000. The Lord Bishop of St. Asaph has been pleased to nominate the Rev. C. C. Davits, to succeed his venerable father, in the Perpetual Curacy of Flint — The Right Hon. Lord Rossmore has been pleased to appoint the Rev. C. C. Davics, to be one of his Domestic Chaplains. BENEVOLENCE.— Mr. Hugh Hughes, a most respectable farmer, of Train y fuel, Cerrig- y- dru- idion, has, for the last 33 years, received aud lodged for one night only ( unless from Saturday night to Monday morning), every poor person that has solicited such benevolence, giving them meat, drink, and lodging. There is a room set apart for this purpose, in which the sojourners are locked all night ; and if any of them wish to go before Mr. Hughes* s family get up in the morning, there is a horn provided for them to blow, upon hearing which some of Mr. Hughes's family go and let them out.— The father- in law of Mr. H. had, in the same benevolent manner, relieved those who ap- plied lo him for upwards of 30 years previous to Mr. Hughes's time.— Before the plan of the horn and the locking up was adopted, the beggars fre- quently repaid the kindness of their benefactor by stealing some of the blankets. The brig Flora, of Liverpool, Captain Meldrum, from Charleston to Liverpool, laden with cotton, tar, and rum, was totally vrecked off the Anglesey coast on the night of the 11th ult. and all on board perished! SPORTING ANECDOTE.— \ dog of the Rev. Mr. Ellis's, in the beginning of the coursing season, himself put up a bare at the foot of one of the mountains in the neighbourhood of Llangwm, and chased it to the top of a rock about 200 feet high, where he killed it, and, though a very large hare, he took it up and commenced carrying it down the mountain. On his descent, he was attacked by some other dogs, from whom he defended him- self and his prize, which he safely laid at the feet of the sportsmen at the bottom of the hill, to their great surprise, and without the hare being in the least torn,— The dog is not a thorough- bred grey- hound, but what is called a rough or long- haired one. On Tuesday, the ' 8th ultimo, an inquest was held before E Carreg, Esq. the Coroner, on the body of John Ellis, of Gorcuor, in the parish of Llanrng, who came by his death in a barbarous coniTrct with another man, in which bis thumb was nearly bit off; the in- flammation and fever brought on in consequence, terminated his existence- verdict, Manslaughter, and the brute was committed lo the County Gaol for trial at the approaching Assizes.

The third time they found him, Trojan leaped the park- wall after him ; but in consequence of the rest of the pack not being able to follow him, old Caesar, as this gallant fox was called, beat them again. The following season, Trojan found this fox again, nearly in the same place, and leaped the wall close at his brush ; but from the cause before mentioned, although he afforded a good run after the other hounds got around to him, he beat them once more! In short, in spite of Old Trojan, " Caesar's fortune" attended him to the last, as he was never killed by hounds, neither was it ever known in what way he ended his life. When Mr. Corbet sold his famous pack in 1790, reserved Old Trojan to himself. Mr. Corbet was, at one time, supposed to have injured his pack by too strict an adherence to " the blood of the Trojans." This, however, was not unobserved by Mr. Corbet, and the defect was in a great measure remedied, chiefly by a large draft of young hounds which he had from that celebrated sportsman, Sir Richard Puieston, whom he ( Mr. C.) was oft-# n heard to declare^ lie could never equal in breeding hounds. Tliis Candid submission to bis superior judgmen> in breeding hounds, from so old and ex perienccd a sportsman as Mr. Corbet, justifies the ligh compliment paid to Sir Richard, many years since, by the late Mr. Meynell— that he considered him u the best ( gentleman) kennel- huntsman in England." All that I have to say respecting the speed of Mr. Corbet's hounds is, that it was g- enerally too great for nine horaes out of ten that followed them, with a g'ood fox, and a good scent; aud such were their powers of hunting, that, even in their woodland country, they would always be backed at. even against their fox ; and, at one time, a good deal of money was won upon them, at this game. In my first letter on Warwickshire, I ventured to point out the late Mr. Corbet as a pattern to all masters of fox- hounds, which the esteem he was held in, and the satisfaction he g" ave, during an almost unprecedented career in the annals of fox- hunting, warranted me. in doing ;— and as influence can exist but by opinion, that exerted by him was powerfully felt by all ranks of persons in the field, nud no man's bounds were, generally speaking, less interrupted by unfair riding than his. As a master of hounds — a natural accompaniment to the situation— his temper was often put to the test; but a harsh, or ungentlemanlike expression was never heard to escape him. So far from putting himself out of temper on every little accident or irregularity that might occur, he may be said almost to have fallen into the opposite extreme, and powerful ex- amples of the command he exercised over HIMSELF, will be found in the following anecdotes. During the latter days of his favourite dog Old Champion, when bis powers were on the decline, and he could not run up with the pack, he accident- ally got under the horse's feet of a hard- riding ft iend of mine, and was laid for dead, on the ground. Unable to wound the feelings of any man, who, he was aware, would lament the accident equally with himself, all that Mr. Corbet said on the occasion, as he gallopped by him without turning his head, was— 4 4 killed the best hound in my pack, THAT'S ALL." I once saw another hound of his ridden over, and killed on the spot, but he did not see it. All the notice he took of this was, to address several of his friends, as he rode by them, with these words: " They've killed me a favourite hound, Sir — You don't happen to know who did it, do you ?" One very laughable scene I was also pre- sent at. A gentleman, no great proficient in the art, was caught by him in the act of hunting his hounds— not knowing he was so near to him! " Thank ye, Sir," said Mr. Corbet, " but my l » r> ut » < U will do that quite as well WITHOUT YOU." With some packs with which I have, hunted, my friend would not have got off quite so cheap. There may he those who may think that this forbearance may have been carried too far ; but the proof that it was not, will be found in the assertion m my former letter, and which no one can con- tradict— that when Mr. Corbet hunted it, Warwick- shire may have been called a preserve of foxes, and the destruction of one was very rarely heard of. As for blank days they were equally rare. There is on old adage, aud a very true one — " the less said is the soonest mended;" and I recol- lect an instance of its being very happily exempli- fied by Mr. Corbet. At a time that a certain Noble Earl was making an attempt to give a check to fox- hunting, by actions at law, not only against Tom Oldaere, huntsman to the Berkeley hounds, and his whipper- in, but against his own brother, Mr. Corbet received a letter from a Warwickshire farmer, who had conceived himself ( and I believe with justice) injured by some servants wantonly riding over his wheat, when that article bore a g- reat price, on returning with their master's hacks from covert. The purport of the letter was merely to tell him that he hoped it would not happen again — giving him to understand, with an allusion to what had passed in the Courts of Law, that be had the power to prevent his hounds coming on his land. Mr. Corbet brought this letter in his pocket the next time he dined at the Club, and, after reading it to the members, said, " Now, Gentlemen, you shall hear my answer, which I hope you will approve of. It is that I have written into Shrop- shire to order my keeper to send Mr. two ANTS a Situation, a professional experienced GARDENER, who has resided in his last Place Six Years, and can give a satis- factory Explanation for leaving.— Applications, by Letter (.

State of the Nation. topics. question of Si a,—- Complaints of the misconduct of female servants in- our day arc loud and universal, aud 1 fear not made without sufficient reason. It would be foreign to' uiy present purpose, to attempt to point out tile causes which have been productive of a more general' deficiency of those qualities which constitute a good servant than loritierly existed. They, or the combinations of thein, niav he as various as the various circumstances in which each individual servant has been placed ; and it is difficult to lix upon any one which may be supposed to have operated more extensively thap au- other; but there is one important restraint upon the indulgence of idleness and viee^ which 1 am afraid is too'much withdrawn, and for " the effects of this relaxation masters and mistresses have themselves alone to blame. Greatly as it is to be lamented, that men in general do not. act under the influence of nobler principles, yet in the present state of things it is of the utmost importance that a salutary- fear of the consequences of misconduct should be preserved. The restraint I allude to is, the fear of losing a good character. We know by experi- ence, that, where this is kept iu view, it has generally a most beneficial effect. But where masters and mistresses, from a misplaced feeling of Compassion, almost universally conceal the real truth, and endeavour to give a fair character to those who do not deserve it— what are we to expect will be the consequence; Just what we see or hear of every day. A servant goes into place with a determination to please no one but herself, till she is likely to want a character, when she begins a course of diligence and good conduct for the purpose of conciliating her mistress, and of working upon her feelings So as to induce her to give her a favourable one. " Slie thereby obtains another place, in which the same system is acted upon ; and wherever she goes, vexation, mistrust, and till manner nf domestic unhappiness is sure to be introduced. It wouid be well if mistresses would reflect, that by acting in the way 1 have mentioned, they are. guilty of the crime of falsehood, or at least of prevarication and deceit, and that they are injuring, not only the person from whom they conceal any part of the truth, but also her on whose behalf they do this, and eventually society at large, by encou- raging tliose very faults which have keen the cause of so much " uneasiness to themselves. I do not mean to say, that these consequences are always foreseen, I believe the contrary to be the case in general ( and therefore 1 write this), but they will assuredly ensue. Were the contrary course adopted— were mis- tresses to do their duty to God, toj themsel ves, and to others, by a steady and undeviating adherence to truth— were servants assured that they would only get a good character when they deserved it, 1 am persuaded that we should very soon both hear and see less of that self- will and self- sufficiency now so much aud so justly complained of; for what a sense of duty alone will not effect, a sense of interest and duty'combined generally will. In hope that these few hints may he useful, I remain, Sir, yours, & c.' A. D. REPEAL OF TAXES. We announced in our last Journal that a con- siderable remission of tile Assessed Taxes was intended, while at the same time a clear Sinking Fund of Five Millions per Annum would be main laiued. And it may be useful to present, in one distinct view, a statement of the amount of the Revenue and Expenditure of the Country, and of the particular items of Taxation in which a re duction is to take place, as laid before the House of Commons by the Chancellor of the Exchequer. The estimated Revenue and Expenditure for the year 1823, is as follows. INCOME FOR 1823.

The total number of sheep brought to the » ame market for sale iu 1821, was J, 275,700, and iu 1822 it amounted to 1,548,700, being an increase of 207,500 sheep above the return of 1821. A pamphlet, entitled " Opinions as to the Real State of live Nation," has been recently published ; and is very ably written. Among oilier the Author enters deeply into AGRICULTURAL EMBARRASSMENT; and reference to some recent dishonourable projects, makes some concise and unanswerable observations. Oa this point he prefaces Ins considerations by these remarks: — " As the Constitution of England is di vided into three estates, so also is the commerce of England. The distinctions of the latter are agricultural, ma. nufacturing, and commercial. If the political tran- quillity of England depend upon the well- ordered adjustment of such three estates, so is the prosperity of EngU-. nd identified with the fair balance of its three sources of wealth.— It will happen, that one may casually preponderate more than another, yet neither cau tor a long period maintain a superiority of success beyond the other. Since the peace, manufactures and commerce have soonest revived ; because, for tliein there was not only tlm field of home demand, but of foreign supply. Agriculture still lingers behind, because her market is limited to the boundary of an Island, and to its own popu- lation.— To the one are opened an expansion of en- terprise, and a variety of market.; the Other is con- fined to its own internal demand. The one may lose upon its outward consignment, yet by the produce of its homeward freight realize an average profit; but the sale of the agriculturist determines at once bis- chance of profit or loss. When demand presses upon the manufacturer, he adds an extra hour to the play of his machinery, and such demand is sup- plied. When the wants of population press upon agriculture, the farmer lias recourse to inferior soils ; but the measure is one of almost certain ruin, for the very instant the price of the day fails to remunerate the cultivation of such soils, they be- come not merely unprofitable, bat they leave liiin amenable to ali the burdens ot the state and of their ocaiity.— The points to be then argued are these : Is agricultural depression occasioned by taxa- tion, change of currency, or over- production ? 2. From whatever cause it may arise, is it temporary, uid open to relief? 3. By what means or to what system may it look for relief? 4. Cau it be placed " erinaueutly upon a footing of less uncertainty of iiiicfuation ? 5. Are the many remedies proposed, applicable or not to its relief?" For a detail of the Author's conclusions we must refer our readers to the Pamph'et itself; but some idea of his mode of argument may be formed from the following extracts relative to Mr. Cobbett's notable propositions :— " The county of Norfolk may possibly feel as much pressure, probably more than any other county ; and Mr. Coke may learn from the result of the late county meeting, how dangerous it is to turn farmers and tenants into political economists. I will waste as little time upon' that meeting as possible ; but will merely recount the remedies, with a brief ob- servation or two upon them. The remedies pro- posed were of two kinds, prospective aud immediate. TILE prospective were— 1. ' An appropriation of part of the public pro- perty, commonly called Church property, to the liquidation of the debt.' — Public property is here evidently intended. to mean ' national property;' lnd in that sense conveys a right of ownership, and power nf redemption." I deny that the Church property is, in that sense, public property — I assert that the Church has as much right to her estates as Mr. Coke to his own. I propose, therefore, ' that part of / IJr. ( ' okers property he appropriated to the liquidation of I tie said debt.' The one principle is as j list as tlie other. ' A reduction of the standing army, including staff, barracks and colleges, to a scale of expense as low as that of the army before the war.' — Agreed — provided tlie1 country " will give up and cede the property acquired by her during the war, with all its mercantile interests ; and which, at a very mo- derate calculation, may be estimated atone hundred and fifty millions. 3. ' A total abolition of all sinecures, pensions, grants and emoluments, r. ot merited hi/ public ser. rices.'' - Agreed to on the part of the Tories— pro- vided Mr. Coke will consent to the same on behalf of the Whigs ; and the Whigs ratify the contract. 4. ' A saie of numerous public estates, commonly called Crown lands, and an application of the money towards the liquidation of the debt.'— The Crown lands, which can hardly now be so called ( they having nothing to do with the support of the Crown), do form part of the public revenue of the State. All fines, forfeitures, rents and renewals, goto the national account; and subject to these casual and periodical payments, nearly all the Crown Lands are private property. If not sold, tlve Crown Lauds are ( if I may use the term) alienated. 5. ' An equitable adjustment with regard to the public debt, and also with regard to all debts and contracts between man and man.'— As to an equit- able adjustment of the national debt, the term is very indefinite : — paying it off is an equitable ad- justment; and it is iu such course : — as man be- tween man ; tliose to whom debts are due, con- tracted before 1797, in a metallic currency ; may receive payment in a metallic currency— those who borrowed in paper money may repay in paper money, or gold at their option— and the rate of interest now is in favour of the borrower.— All equitable adjustment has also taken place, by the fall in price of every article of commerce— and by a great decrease of taxation. The immediate remedies are— 1. ' To. suspend by law, for one year, all dis- traints for rent, and to cause distraints to he set aside where they have been begun.' That is ; A. cannot pay this year bis rent of £ 500, but next year he will be able to pay £ 1000. This is a very exhilarating prospect, but one certainly not meant. The plain English is: begin a little system of robbery, and let us see -. vliere it will end. Or— sell your goods, cheat your landlords, and trans- ports America. 2. ' To suspend all process for tithe, for the same period.'— The ground is now so very unproductive, that there is hardly a shock of grain, for the parson to put bis bough in; but next. y » ar there will be double crops: — delightful anticipation ! 3. ' To suspend for the siiinc period, all processes • riln P ROT EST A N T PETITION, VOTED AT T1IE LATB PROTESTANT MEETING HELD IN DUBLIN. parliament. arising out of mortgage, ' bond, annuity, or other contract affecting house or land.' That is, liavin robbed the landlord aud the parson, rob one another. 4. ' To repeal the whole of the tax on malt, hops, leather, soap and candles.' That is, having rob- bed the landlord, the parson, and one another ; stop the dividend of the fuudholder.— Was there ever a more ignorant, roguish and ruinous system broached ? this too, called a system of remedy, and which amounts to this ; ' destroy income, and spend your capital.' A pretty remedy truly ! Those who couple politics with agriculture mix up with it such terms— as arbitrary government, enormous and uncontroulled expenditure, unfor- tunate wars, profligate confusion and corruption, inconsistent and contradictory expedients, subser- viency of public men to tlie Minister of the day, and silent revolution steadily proceeding to its con- summation, necessity of reform. These are the clap- traps ofparty ; they have been in the constant use of the opponents of every administration, from the days of the revolution to'tlie present moment; they are words of course, made useful as preludes to propositions, which otherwise, without such high seasoning, would never he forced upon men's judg- ments.— But those who acknowledge the existence of agricultural distress, and seek not to make it the hobby- horse of disaffection, confine themselves to the questions, of national debt, currency, taxation, poor rates, and tithes; and to these I will restrain my further observation." The Author then pursues these topics, in the course of which, whilst speaking- of the fancied depreciation of the Bank of England pound- note, he says, " I may be allowed here to recount an anecdote of a transaction which, I hear, took place a little while ago at the Bank. A countryman went to receive bis dividends : they amounted to upwards of a thousand . pounds. I'll ha' it all in gold, if you please, Sir ( speaking to the cashier). It was counted out to him. You'll lend me a bag to carry it awa' wont ve ; My business is only to • pay you ( said the cashier). Nay, but ye'll lend me a bag, or else how shall I carr' it awa' ? I don't find bags ( said the cashier). The countryman be gan to fill his pockets; they would not hold his money. Here, Sir, take back your money, and gi' I^ notes, if you please. I have paid your dividends its you wished, I cannot change ( said the cashier). Well then, will ye watch the money till I gets a coach ? I have other business to attend to ( said the cashier). However, a bank porter was dispatchcd for a coach, and tlie countryman was helped to a bag tocarryaway his dividends ; inthe demanding of which in gold he thought he was a second Lord King." " To tlie Right Honourable and Honourable the Knights., Citizens, and Bnrgesses'of the United Kingdoms. of Great Britain and Ireland, in Parliament- assembled,.- 44 The Hum hie . Petition of the Protestant Inhabitants of the City and County of Dnhiin, 41 HUMBI. Y SHEWETII — That the Petitioners are true and faithful sublets of his Majesty, our most Gracious Sovereign Lord King George the Fourth, not yielding to any in loyalty and devoted attnohmeut to his Royal Person, arid to the Illustrious House of ijbuns- wiek, in . defence of which they are ready to risk their lives and properties, should foreign invasion, or domestic dissension, ever require it. " Thar Petitioners have learned, with much sur- prise, regret, and alarm, that another attempt by a motion is about to be submitted to your Honourable House, having for its object, the granting- df further concessions to persons professing the Roman Catholic Faith. tk That should such " motion succeed-, Petitioners hunihlv submit, that the consequences io that part of the United Kingdom called Ireland, would not only he injurious at the present moment, but fait a I in its probable consequences. : 44 That in Great Britain, the admissibili ty of Roman Catholics to seats in your . Honourable House, would have the obvious effect i> f strengthening the hands'* and emboldening'the acts of that numerous portion of discontented spirits* who hesitate not, even at this early period, ftfavow their hostility to the successful administration of affairs to wh-; ch, under Divine Pro- vidence, we owe that I he flag of Bri tain waves triumphant over the Ensigns of Europe. That experience teaches your Petitioners, tliat every Coif cess.! on that has been made to the Roman Catholic Body has hot germinated a fee'sh demand ; anil, therefore, that Petitioners' are warranted in expressing their decided opinion, that should th; e present motioh succeed*,- admission to the House of Peers would be the nex t demand of that Body, dud would flow as a Hat oral consequence _ front the success of the measure submitted to your Honourable House. " That thus, part of the Hereditary Peerage of England being Roman ( Catholics, Would possess seats as a matter of course, and of right'; aud little doubt exists but that from the zeal and perseverance of the Roman Catholics in the pursuit of political" power and privileges, a portion of the Irish Representative Peerage would soon be chosen from the Noblemen of that persuasion.. 44 That the Representation of the Prelacy would be equally divider! as regards this put of the United Kingdom, between the heads of that Faith, which is the Established Religion of the Realm, ami the heads of a Church in open and avowed hostility with Protestantism. 44 That front this combination of influence much dissension would arise, aud every measure which might hereafter come before your Honourable House, having for its object the preservation or the advan- tage of the Church now by law established, would meet vVith considerable opposition, if not complete defeat. " That the Protestant Prelates, who are men of rank and education, would be degraded by. a fellow- ship with the Roman Catholic Bishops of Ireland, who are universally men sprung from the dregs of the people, many of them nearly illiterate, ami all of them imbued^ vvith those Jesuitical principles so Utterly at variance with Civil and Religious Liberty, and therefore so repugnant to the glorious principles of onr inestimable Constitution. 44 That the Pope having the nomination of the Roman C. itholic Bishops, might, at a future time, for the furtherance of political purposes, appoint foreigners to the fri* h Roman Catholic Sees. That the Roman Catholic Clergy possess unbounded influ- ence over their fl » eks, even over those of their persuasion of the highest rank : that it follows, the Roman Catholic Peers, and Roman Catholic Mem- bers of the Honourable House of Commons, obeying ( as in conformity with their religion hound) the dictates of their Bishops, and the Bishops being in the same manne. r bound to the Pope, at a future time, and perhaps at some eventful pe'iiod, when the Roman Catholics would have gradually crept into numerical strength in your Honourable House, a foreign and hostile influence might eventually exist iu, nay, over- rule the Legislative Assemblies of- this- realm. 44 That the influence of the Roman Catholic Priest- hood of Ireland has been largely enerensed by the introduction of the Jesuits into a country where th'ey are permitted to assume, even at the present bour^ not only a religions, but political influence over bis Majesty's subjects.

Petitioners humbly submit are all sufficient grounds to warrant their conclusions; and Petitioners humbly entreat that your Honourable House will lake the averments of Petitioneis into your serious consideration, and resist any further concessions to the Roman Catholic Subjects of these realms , all which is humbly submitted. 44 And your Petitioners as in duty bound will pray." HOUSE OF LORDS— MONDAY. The Archbishop of CANTERBURY brought in a Bill to suspend, provisionally, all the embai rassing Clauses New Marriage Act, so as to place the law upon footing on which it stood before the late Act ed, with the sole addition of the clause rendering marriages indissoluble. HOUSE OF COMMONS— MONDAY. Sir ROBERT VVILSON took the opportunity afforded by the presentation of a Petition for the Repeal of f Ih the pa si the Foreign Enlistment Law to compliment th « Ministry upon the liberal, policy which they had adapted with respect to foreign politics.— Mr. Hon- HOUSE joiued'iu the compliment, contrasting the line of, conduct lately taken by Government with that pursued during- the ascendancy of Lord'Londonderry. — Mr. CANNING indignantly rejected the praise, of- fered to him at the expense of his predecessor* pointing to the record of the late Marquis's liberal sentiments contained in his Circular of January, 1821. After some subjects of inferior interest had been disposed of, Mr. BROWNI. OW moved for copie&. of the papers connected with the late state prosecutions in Dublin;— The motion called up Mr. PLUNKETT, who complained that Sir John Stewart ( formerly Attorney- GeueiaJ in Ireland:) had assigned to Mr. Brownlow those charges, which he was, in some measure, him- self pledged to prosecute. A conversation followed between Sir John Stewart, Mr. Robinson, Mr. M. Fitzgerald, Mr. Croker, and Mr. Abercroinbie, which was only remarkable for the disinclination mani- fested on all sides to engage with the merits of the case. Having obtained the papers for which he moved, Mr. Brown low pledged himself to bring forward. au ulterior propositi on at some convenient day shortly before that fixed, for the discussion of the Catholic question, the 17th of April. Nothing in- teresting occurred io the subsequent stages of the night's proceedings. HOUSE OF LORDS- TUESDAY. The. provisional Marriage Act Amendment Bill was read a second time. ! 1OUSE OP COM MONS— TUESDAY. Upon the presentation of some petitions against the Assessed Taxes, a very strong feeling was mani- fested iu favour of a total repeal. Mr. BRIGHT, however, submitted, as Mr; Calcraft had done on a preceding- evening, that the taxes on leather and candles were more eligible objects for a repeal. Ou the presentation of a petition against the In- solvent ACT, Sir ROBERT WILSON called the attention of the House to the oppressive operation of Ex- chequer prosecutions; the costs upon which, in manv instances, exceeded the fine which it was sought to impose.— Mr. LUSMINGTON explained thai these expenses could be incurred only where an obstinate defence was opposed against the Crown. Mr. HUME then adverted, at some length, to the important question-- of our Colonial system. The Honourable Member remarked upon the expense of maintaining the Colonies, upon the mischiefs result- ing from the patronage which they afforded to Ministers, upon the oppressive construction of most NEW LONDON BRIDGE.— The arches of Mr. Fowler's design are segments of circles, springing five feet below the high water mark of ordinary spring tides, the span of the centre arch is 154 feet, and of the two next 143, and each of the smaller arches 125, making a total water- way of 690 feet. The height of the centre areh, above the high- water of spring tide, is 23 feet, or 28 feet above the chord line; the crowns of the two in- shore arches are 16 feet above the same high water mark, and 21 feet above their chord lines. The thickness through the crown of the centre arch is eight feet, i. e. from the soffite of the arch to the surface, of the pavement. The roadway is level over the middle arch and its piers, from the extreme points of which it slopes both ways, with an inclination of one foot in twenty- six, till it intersects the existing streets on both sides of the River. The spandrels of all the arches are light- ened by hollow cylinders, placed at right angles to the roadway, which of course passes over them, hi lieu of a ballustrade Mr. Fowler has adopted a parapet wall seven feet six inches high, pierced with large circular apertures, filled in with open cast iron work, to afford a view of the river These parapet walls terminate in quadrant sweeps, at the ends of which are monumental columns about 50 feo high, around the base or pedestals of which the stairs descending to the water's edge are wound. The extreme width of the bridge is 48 feet. The piers on each side of the centre arch are carried up in a manner resembling those of Westminster Bridge, except that their plan is a semicircle instead of a half- octagon; they are finished with a hollow half dome; over eaeh of the other piers and the abutments arched recesses are introduced in the main body of the structure. The voussoirs of all the arches are rusticated. Mr. Fowler has concluded that it will not be necessary to drive piles in any part of the founda- tion. The estimate is about £ 306,000. of their Governments, upon the danger of war which they constantly draw upon the empire, and upon the probability of their ultimate separation. As an inference from ail these considerations, he did not hesitate to urge the expediency of conferring upon such as should be able to maintain their independ- ence ( Canada in the first place) an absolute manu- mission, aud bestowing the benefits of the British Constitution upon such as it should be thought advisable to retain as dependencies. Mr. Hume concluded by moving for some Financial1 Returns from the Colonies.— Mr. WILMOT suggested a post- ponement of the discussion until after the returns demanded by Mr. Hume's motion should be pre- sented,— Mr. BRIGHT expressed his dissent from Mr. Hume's opinions, and the motion was agreed to without further debate. Mr. BROWNLOW fixed his motion respecting the Irish State Trials for the 15th April, notwithstanding the solicitations of Messrs. Goulbnru and Brougham to name an earlier day. Mr. Brownlow assigned, as his motive for the delay, the absence of the'".' Irish Members, who are likely to be for the most part engaged at the assizes. HOUSE OF COMMONS— WEDNESDAY. SURREY PETITION. _ . Mr. BENISON presented the petition agreed to at the late Surrey County Meeting, to which Cob- bett's 44 equitable adjustment11 amendment was attached.— Mr. H. SUMNER, on be half of ninety- nine parts in every hundred of the respectable inhabitants of Surrey, disclaimed the petition.— The Hon. H. G. BENNET supported the petition, and said the House would ultimately be obliged to reconsider the subject of the currency.— Mr. PEEL defended tlie return to cash payments; and Mr. RICARDO said he was of opinion the price of gold, and the distress, of the country, great as it was, would have been the same if the bill enforcing a return to cash payments had never been passed. THE CORN LAWS. Mr. WCLRYCIIE WIIITMORE, pursuant to notice, brought under the consideration of the House ihe laws relating to the trade in Corn. It was a sub- ject of vast magnitude, and of complicated interest, but he trusted he should be able, without occupying much of the time of the House, to place his view fully before them. He considered that the main feature of the question affecting- the. agricultural interest was the principle of fluctuation, and here he felt it right to state, that, he wished to keep the question of the currency as separate jis possible ' from the present, that the House might more easily form a right view of both. He would, ih illustra- tion of his view, suppose that a law, similar to the Corn Bill, had been adopted in Holland, which was an importing country to a considerable extent. Suppose then such a law in Holland, there would be high prices for some years— a great appropria- tion of capital to agriculture— poor soil' brought iuto cultivation— the breaking up of old pastures. Now suppose the extent of territory sufficient, there would at length be, in average years, a produce sufficient for the consumption of the country, and it was quite obvious abundant crops would give considerably more than the necessary consumption. The superabundant quantity so produced would fall back on the market; the produce would, in conse- quence, fall in price until it came down to that of the corn m the exporting? markets. The result would be very considerable ; distress— destruction of capital -- deterioration of soil on account- of the abstraction of manure— poor land forced out of cul- tivation, and, instead of abundance, there would be, in two or three years, a positive deficiency. Thus it appeared that such a law could only ope- rate, either in producing- a' superabundance and glut which brought ruin to the farmer, or a great want, which, he believed, in the end would be as injurious to the farmer as to the other classes of the community.. He drew this state of things with respect to Holland ; and if they looked to England they would find that, from the similar character of the State, the operation of the law must be the same. England had been, as to agricultural pro- duce, an importing* country as well as Holland. Let them look to the year 1815, the one subsequent to the war. The events of that year were Jicted upon by the peculiar circumstances of the war. The year before, the crop had been poor and the demand very great. In that year an important re- action took place. In that year the Bill, which sooner or later must be repealed, was passed. There were higher prices in consequence at the close of 1816, and they continued in 1817 and 1818, In 1817, the wheat was 80s. a quarter, in the beginning of 1818 it was 84s. a quarter. In 1819, prices fell, and succeeding good crops kept them down ; that of 1820 was abundant, and that of 1821 was a good average crop, though somewhat injured in quality. This abundantly bore out the analogy of his supposed case of Holland to that of this country. At present we had arrived at the term of low prices, and a period of considerable danger. The consumption of the country, in consequence of the low prices, was going on in a way which could not be supported. All the stock sold by the farmers went into the hands of the millers, and thence into consumption, so that the stock of corn in the hands of the farmer was considerably less., now than he usually had at the same season of the year. The Hon. Member then referred to some documents in support of his position, and read a paper from Mr. Cropper, of Liverpool, whose authority, he said, should have great weight with many who heard him. The paper stated that the extent of growth and rate of consumption were difficult to ascertain. In the year 1820 the crop was considerable; in 1821 it was partly injured, but still an average crop; in 1822 it was something below an average. It was stated that the consumption of wheat was 7 quarters per cent, more in 1821 than in 1820, and in 1822 above 27 per cent. more. It was also stated that the present value of wages operated against economy, as, for instance, the people in Man- chester could eat nothing but fine flour. Through- out Lancashire a similar efl'ect was produced, and the consumption was going on at a greater rate than the growth. When, in consequence, a want occurred, the question would be, whence we could ' be supplied ? We mig- ht be nearly exhausted be- fore the deficiency could be satisfied. In common times this matter might be left to itself, but these were not common times. The wages of the manu- facturers in Nottingham iti 1820 hardly gave them sustenance, but now, when of higher value, they were so far from being economical, that they Used ' tlie' best articles. The Hon. Member proceeded to observe, that he could shew by documents the general state of the country, and the general result of the Corn Laws, which had produced a great deterioration of the soil, it being now beggared of manure, and through neglect become fo'ul. j In some places, where it was usual to consume bones for manure, not more than half the quantity was now used that had been formerly. In other places, where lime was burned for the same purpose, the quantity had. fallen off variously from two- thirds to one- tenth and one- twentieth. . Tie then read a document from a lime"- WoFk of his own, setting forth that the quantify used in the average of ten years before' 1819 was 42,861 bushels ; in the year 1820, 30,334; in 1821, 30,368; and in 1822, but 20,790 bushels. He would now ask Gentlemen to look back to the period when the Act passed, and consider whether the law was or was not. the cause of the present state of things, and if they ascertained it to be the law, as he believed they would, lie entreated, them to take it into their serious consi- deration, as there never was a greater emergency, or one that required more attentive examination. He need not, in the presence of the Gentlemen who heard him, appeal to the poverty and distress of the fanners. It was obvious to e very man, that the present condition of the Farmers had taken place under what was called protection, but what could only be called protection by a mere mockery of the idea, which insults their misfortunes b. Y derision and a cruel irony. Before he adverted to the alteration which it was his intention to propose in the existing law, lie would briefly review, the efleets of the present law politically and comtnereu ally considered. And first with regard, to its poli- tical tendency,- he was persuaded that nothing could be more calculated to subject the country to the greatest peril. The law would either answer the purpose for which it was framed, or it would not. If it did not answer its purpose, it was contemptible below ridicule. If it did answer its purpose, in what situation might not the country be placed by its operation ? The effects of it would be totally at variance with all that had been hitherto considered as practically beneficial in the Country ; they would be at variance with all that union " of interests which had hitherto constituted the strength of the Country ; they would be at variance with all that feeling which had hitherto caused the aristo- cracy of this Country to be considered as the friends and protectors of the other classes of the Com- munity. In vain was snch an attachment as that to which* he last alluded looked for in any other Country than in England ; and every circumstance by which it was endangered in this Country, also endangered the public tranquillity. With regard to tlie operation of the existing law upon trade, the effects of it must be in the highest degree injurious to those manufactures which it ought to be our object to promote, as on them so materially depend our strength and prosperity. Instead of ex posing manufactures to danger so" imminent, every'effort ought to be made to prevent our manufacturers from being- tempted to'withdraw their capitals to other , countries ; and thereby to deprive great masses of our population of employment. On that point we ought to take warning from the fate of other nations, once opulent, but now the abodes of poverty and distress. Let the House look at Italy : — 44 Not far removed the date, When commerce proudly flourished thro' the state : At her command the palace learn'd to rise, Ag- ain the long- fall'n columns sought the skies : The canvas glow'd beyond e'en Nature warm ; The pregnant quarry teem'd with human form ; Ti'l, more unsteady than the southern gate, Commerce on other shores display'd her sail ; While nought remained of all that riches" gave, But towns unmann'd, and Lords without, a slave ; And late the nation found, with fruitless'skill, Its former strength was but plethoric ill'.- The alteration which it was his intention to propose in the present law, vvas to lower the import price two shillings a year, until it came down to 60s.; because he was thoroughly persuaded that foreign Corn could not be brought in any considerable quantity into our markets when the price was so low as sixty shillings per quarter. Encum- bered as the agriculturists were with the pay- ment of the Poors' Rates, he certainly eonld not say that he was an advocate for a free trade in Corn. But he maintained at the same time that it vvas altogether impolitic and unsafe to continue the duty at its present amount. If would be by no means politic, or even practicable, to continue* the high diity, when Corn should arrive at the scarcity Eriee. It was impossible that foreign corn could e purchased abroad at a less rate than 35 ® . If the expense of freight, the profit to the merchant, the contingent losses, & c. were calculated, it would be evident that with a duty of 12s. foreign com could not be broug- ht. into the English market under 60s. All that w- as wanted by the country was to avoid the injurious fluctuations that had of late years taken place in the price of corn, and to secure what might be considered as a fair level price. The Hon. Gent, concluded by moving- for leave to bring in a Bill to amend the Corn Laws. Mr. CURWEN and Mr. BENETT ( of Wiltshire) opposed the motion, and, while they maintained the necessity of keeping the present corn law, said the chief remedy for the existing and overwhelming agricultural distress was the repeal of taxation.— Mr. WODEHOUSE also opposed the motion.— Mr. HUSKISSON wished the motion to be withdrawn ; he thought the corn law as it now stood, was as perfect as it could be made, consistent with the feelings of the interests which were concerned.— Mr. RICARDO supported the motion, but thought it did not g- o far enough. Mr. ATTWOOD, Col. WOOD, and Sir T. LETHBRIDGE opposed the motion ; Mr. STUART WORT LEY, Mr. MONCK, and Mr. IIUME supported it.— On a division, the motion was rejected by a majority of 78 to 25. EXECUTION OF SIX MEN— The crowd as- sembled in the Old Bailey on Wednesday morning to witness the execution, was the greatest collected on a similar occasion for some years. The follow ing were the names of the men who were to suffer: — James Brown, William Watts, Thomas Fuller, Mark Herd, John Harris, and John Wait. Four of these had for some years past carried on the work of plunder with reckless avidity, and in a manner that, for desperation of purpose, and ex- tent of villainy, perhaps, during the same period, was unrivalled.— Mark Herd and William Watts were thieves from infancy, and were inured to punishment and prison discipline. Herd was ( he leader of the gang of ruffians denominated 44 the Rescue Gang," who, about two years since, in mid- day, attacked Marsden, the Marlborough- street jailer, and having rescued five prisoners from his custody, left him weltering in his blood, and nearly dead, in the street; for this offence some suffered punishment, and Herd and Watts were imprisoned twelve months, and twice pub- licly w hipped. Brown had once been transported, and Fuller, although a man of small stature, was remarked for desperation of character, and had several times been tried for offences remarkable for barbarity. John Harris had been a soldier, and was servant to Colonel De Burgh, of the 63d Regiment, whom he had robbed of much property. The Colonel endeavoured to procure a commu- tation of the sentence on account of the fact of his having, during an alarming fire at Woolwich, which threatened destruction to the Arsenal, risked his life with an intrepidity unequalled, at a moment of the most'imminent danger; but the Royal clemency could not be extended towards him.— Mr. John Wait was trustee to a will or be quest of £ 1,300 to some young children, and he availed himself of the confidence reposed in him to obtain the money and appropriate it to his own use He had moved in the first respectability, and was regarded as a gentleman of talents. On his trial he received an excellent character. On being informed that there was no hope for him, he gave way to the most violent excess of grief. Subsequently he became more resigned, and his mind was ciilm, collected, and penitent; his edifying example to the other condemned men was attended with the best effects. In cases of doubtful morality it is usual to say, Is there any harm in doing this ? This question may sometimes be best answered by asking our- selves another— Is there any harm in letting it alone? FINANCES OF SPAIN.— The Madrid Papers of the 14th wit. state that the finances of the Govern- ment are eveu in a worse condition than was anti- cipated. Arrears of taxes, from the impossibility of getting money, and from the necessity of sup- plying the troops, have been ordered to be levied in kind. The produce of the territorial taxes* which had been estimated at 50,090,000 reals* amounted in reality to 8,000,000 reals. The tax on patents, which should have realized 25,000,000 reals, had given only 143,000. The House Tax, instead of being 6,000,000 reals, as reckoned on, had, in fact, produced 550,598 reals; and the other taxes had fallen below expectation in equal proportion.— This defalcation, is principally owing to the disturbed stale of the country, which, never in a high state of cultivation and never wealthy, has been soon exhausted by the contributions levied by both the Royalists and the Constitution* alists. The suspension of many branches of in- dustry, from a state of civil war, has cut short the resources, and a great part of the national exertion also has been lately employed, not iu creating, but in destroying wealth. France, on the other hand, though long weighed down by the contributions of the Allies, has been able, during a peace of seven years, to increase her commerce, improve her manufactories, and add to her resources. Though divided in sentiment, though a large party is strongly opposed to the war, no opposing bands traverse the land from end to end, pillaging, devas- tating, and destroying. She begins the contest, therefore, with many physical advantages. TRIE BRITISH GLORY.— We copy with great pleasure the following extract of a letter from the Right Rev. Dr. Griswold, Bishop ot the Eastern Diocese, and member of the Episcopal Bench iu the United States, from the last Church Missionary Report:— 44 From the sure word of prophecy, and the evident signs of the times, we are authorized in the belief, that the unprecedented and astonish- ing exaltation of the British Empire, in the wise and gracious purpose of the Almighty, is intended to facditate the extension of the Redeemer's King- dom ; that your victorious armies will be the pioneers of the Prince of Peace; and that your fleets, w hich disperse through the earth the various productions of nature and art, are destined to be freighted with the richer treasures of the Saviour's Gospel. From the number and variety of your religious and charitable institutions ; from* the readiness and liberality of the English in contri- buting to every good" work; as also from the increasing disposition of the various denominations of christians, to unite their efforts in propagating the faith of Christ— they are not, we have reason to hope, insensible how much it is in their power to benefit the world, and what high obligations arc attached to their present pre- eminence among the nations of the earth." The Lord Bishop of the Diocese of Hereford, has been pleased to collate the Rev. J Lilly, of Newcourt, to the Archdeaconry < f Hereford, void hy the death of the iate Rev. Dr. Jones, A Court Martial assembled on Wednesday, on board his Majesty's ship Superb, at Plymouth,, to try ^ Captain Suckling, and the Officers of his Majesty's late sloop of war Racehorse, for the loss of that vessel al the Isle of Man; Capt. M'Kcnzie, of the Superb, President. After examining, a nutnbei- of witnesses, the sentence of the Court was, that the Captain and Officers were fully acquitted, with the exception of the Master, who was slightly reprimanded for not keeping the lead going; and the Pilot, in consideration of his certificates of former good conduct, was only severely reprimanded and mulcted of his pay. BILL SOAMES.— This notorious rogue was, on Thursday, convicted at the Old Bailey Sessions, of picking the pot- bet of a genlleinan in the Sti'aud, and sentenced to ti- anspoitation for life. He \ Vas atlireil in a decent suit of black. The Recorder, on passing sentence, observed, that " il would only he a waste of words to attempt making any im- pression upon a hardened wietrli, who, for so long a course of ycavs, had braved the laws with im- punity." He heard his sentence without belrayin? the slightest change of countenance, and left the bar apparently unconcerned. By Charleston Papers to the - 28th ult. we learii that the Imperial regimen established in Mexico may be of very transitory duration. The republican? are making great progress in the interior. ON EXCESS IN EATING.— How many are the diseases which may bs traced to improper quantity or quality of food; and bow grievous are the suffering's which may be ascribed to excess ol nutriment among the higher classes of society, more especially of those resident in London, who live full high, without that proportion of air, exercise, and employment, which is requisite t'o. iu due elaboration ! How many bilious and nervous disorders, as our Doctors call them, are thus excited or generated, and how much bodily and mental suffering might be spared by temperance in rating. In our days, the degrading fashion of hard drinking- has certainly declined, and a corresponding im- provement in health and morals has been the con- sequence. We have but few tipplers left, and tiiey are deservedly excluded from all decent society. But hard- eating, has unfortunately gained a pro- portionate ascendancy, and the appetite is arti- ficially stimulated and excited by a thousand mis- chievous combinations nuknown'to our ancestors, and infinitely seductive and hurtful. The roast beef of Old England has ceded its wholesome dominion to a host of French entremets and hors dWuvres, and with them a series of disorders have become prevalent, quite as grievous as those which our forefathers derived from the bottle. It is not, however, to one, or even two good dishes, that we object, hut the system of overloading the stomach : nine persons in ten eat as much soup and fish as would amply suffice for a meal, and as far as soup and fish are concerned, would rise from their dinner, satisfied and even saturated. A new sti- mulus appears in the form of stewed beef, or coteletles u la supreme— then comes a Bayonne or Westphalia ham, or pickled tongue, or some ana- logous salted but proportionately indigestible dish, and of each of these enough for a single meal is superadded to the burthen under which the stomach is already groaning: but this is not all— game follows, and to this succeed the sweets, and that most indigestible of all coagula, cheese, associated perhaps with some saline stimulus in the form of an anchovy or caviar: the whole is crowned with a variety of flatulent fruits, and indigestible knick- knacks, included under the term dessert. Wine we have purposely omitted. Thus then it is that the stomach is made ( with many of us daily during the seasonj to receive not one full meal, but is actually distended with a succession of meals rapidly follow- ing- each other, aud vying in their miscellaneous and pernicious nature with the ingredients of Mac- beth s cauldron. It is an ungracious task to curb the appetite of the sensualist, and restrain the voracity of the glutton; but it is one which the doctor, who does his duty, often ought to perform, instead of tain peri ngwith the epicurean propensities of his patient, by the administration of rhubarb and bitters. Tile studious and sedentary are the prin- cipal sufferers, and they seldom " discover their danger till it is past removal; they are assailed hy head- aches and hypochondriasis'— by plethora and palpitations, by vertigo, constipation, nausea, and want of sleep"; the physician tells them tliat thev are bilious, and perhaps quells the most press, ing symptoms hy antispasmodics and evacuants, op flatters them bv the assurance that thev are suller- j ing- under the. disorders of the genius. a" s Dr. Stuart has lately called these maladies ; whereas the cure is to be found in air, exercise, and a plain diet, physic being, at the same time, 44 thrown to the #" 1 AfTO / I.- Drryi^ o ( V L- dogs."— Dr. Paris\ t Work.
