Full text of "The National register, a weekly paper"

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

the gratification, which these circumsianoet mustafihrd to llie 
Ministers of the present a^i but we must tu: allowed to treai- 
lile for posterity. 

From this short vt«r of our internal situalion, by wMcb olr 
pfdsperity is chiefly tb be estluated, w^ turn b» tife considlcAt- 
iioii »( dui* (■tternal relations. Great Britain is now )>lace«l in 
it condition in Which she may distinctly ascertain whether her 
6wn intrntai fesdurr^ are iterfectly adequate to her defenre, 
or Ti'hethsr she eanno<i ivithout external aid, rftlst a cofflbiaa- 
(idn of ezleitial encttilni Tb<! m«M powerful PrlMe that has 
ever reigned in Eurdp^i il ftiali raised from obscnrlty by his 
OVrn tfaflscendaiit lalenisf has succeeded in reducing every snr^ 
rounding aatlAllio a Cdtrf^lete sublerviency, and has converted 
them all into instruments of vengeance against this hated notion. 
The plain of vengeance Whiini He bJts devised, tf not wise, are 
Are at least vast and magnilicenti Compariag our wonderful 
resources with those of the comtrift. niMlcr his own ddnrtnioo, 
and impressed with our striking sap«Moniyi b« has con- 
ceived that our external commerfc) the only advantage 
which we' seem exclusively to possess, is the sdWce of all 
our riches aitd aggranditettient f and that, if d<i>rived of this 
fountain of wealth, we should toon sink iota ntlseraUe decay, 
and becoifie humble suppliants for his faifcearBM'e andiavOhr. 
In conformity with these views, be has uodertakM to cut elT 
uur intercourse with foreign nations} and •« bebas aottbe 
poVver of blockading oiir island by sea, he has resolvM to compel 
overy nation of the Continent to exclude oar mercbandiie from 
Its shores; In this fnst enterprise he has ulready succeeded 
beyond all previous cftlcnlation ; and, witli the «x«eptiaa of 
Sweden, which cannot long resist bis iaAaence, (here is pot a 
sin'le barbour In the Continent of Europe, into whitli an 
English vessel can obtain a friendly nd Ailtta'nce. ' 

Thefolly'of these enftrprizea, ^nd the very false judgment 
'trVidh Bonaparte hns furilird of the real sobrcct of British great- 
MRS, will speedily he evinc«il. IlewillBnd that Ibe Interfu^' 
tion of our continental commerce may distress a few manufactur- 
ers and merchdnts, but will nrithef'diininisb the sum of oar na- 
tional industry, nor even the receipts ,of our Bxcliecpier. In 
tbne he would discover that his estlmate-'of oar finances is not 
letsobsOrd thanthe calculations of some of our own wise politi- 
cians, who, twelve ye.-irs ago, itffii'inod that France cobld not 
possibly support theexpcnces of anotifer tampalgii; 

It muct be tnlly consolatory to our countrymen, to be itssured 
that no nation in Europe can e)crtude our cominerce, without 
bringing dpon themselves tenfold greater distresses than (hey can 
possibly Make us sustain. The commencement of 'war with Bri- 
tain entirely deprived France nf nil direct commerce in her own 
vessels with other nations, and the late severe' edicts which Bo- 
napafle'has llsoed, with a view to prevent the iMporlation of 
our prddhctiobsby means of neulralsf has cut olf from hissultiects 
every source of comfort and opulence-whieh Ibey deriteil from 
•n intercourse' with foreign nations. " AH the slates wTilch he has 
leduced to sul^jection at^ equal or greater suVSrrers. The Dutch, 
who not only prospered but sobststed by external coriunercr, 
and who bad hitherto-been saVedfrom tbedeepest^iMfeaiby the 
connivance of their ralers'at a secret traflc tvith Britain, are 
Aow, by tfae-stricr InfoKeMMt of the prohibitory laws, reduced to 
lOch a calamitous cooditiM, tblt they have even Veotnred to mur- 
mur dierr WIsesies in the «H:«r of their oppressors. Russhs loses 
bar external «<tnimet«e, IMt tbe mcaai Of iaterntl cultivation ( 
PxnsiUU plated in (he wnMilahappy predicametit ^ Spain Sndt 



left on her liaodt those raw materials whioh she basHotthe capi- 
tal or (be indttsiry to manufacture ; and Portugal must desist 
from the cultivation of her vineyards, the former sources of her 
vrcalth, when she con no longer find a market for their produce. 

Froin these considerations, H appears, that Bonaparte canant 
prosceote his schemes of vengance agtrinst tbe external commerce 
of Britain, withoat bringing for deeper distress on Fiance, her 
allies, and dependents i thatf in sbnr^the more fiercely be deals 
his blows, he will the more rapidly shatter the weapon which 
be aims against the impeaetrable helmet of our prosperity. 
Nor has the ^Iscoatenb whicb bis impotent tnmity excites (o be 
overlooked. There is not a tnorHlme province whJiiit' bis do' 
minions, or the reach of his tnfluenre, Which does not smart un- 
der the rigduc of hll prohibitory edicts, mi send forth its mur- 
mars ngtfinsl (bent : and the Russtaas already begin to giveeri- 
dent indication*, that the timidity of their COtOt will not long 
be able to overcome a general sense of national interest. 

When we urn out eyes from (he Continent of Eai*ope, ire see-. 
vast entrances open to onr commerce, which- cannot be shut 
against ds, either by the arts or the arms Of our enemies, - and 
which can only be lost by our own misconduct. The Americans, 
indeed, have bCgUn to asrame that tone of preemption and in- 
solence, which is natural even (o infant Republics, from tt con- 
KiousneM of tbeir own vigour and enttgy f but by a mixture of 
moderation and flmiBess, (he angry demagogues of (bat cottntry 
may speedily be silenced. There, as in Europe, Brilahi vf oulA 
be a loser; bat America would be tenfold a sulTerer. lA (he 
pursuit of maritime rfgflts wbl(A she has not ihe power to as- 
sen,' she would only Incur the certain destruction of Jier coa^ 
mercCi and the deprivation of tlte most indi>peiiMbl« comforts c|

. Saicly, if there ever was a daty incnnbeot on a politica]

fairly detected in their practices, lose their influence over even 
the most credulous. Calumny, when fairly refuted, recoils 
with double force on tbe Inventor ; and virulent invectives, 
when uttered by impotent resentmeirt, serve onljf to convert In- 
dignation into immingied contempt. '

tbe two great contending factions, to the retained abettors of

cemcience, who dare neither praise nor blame, nor refute 
to praise nor to blame, unless as they are licenced by tbe 
sovereign nod of their masters. There have lately appeared 
certain political writers who vehemently afiect the praise- 
of impartiality, who actually lash bolb the outt and tbe fnt 
when it suits their occasions, and who certainly shew airandanco 
of intrepidity in their political decltmatieas. Bot'when we 
open their pafes- to :.)ok after tliese politlcnl novelties, Imth 
and candour, we find ourselves as far removed from tbem a« 
eier : we And misrepresentation! as groi», Invectives at virulent, 
designs as pernicious OS those frao wbleb we ttttned away la 
disgust. We discover that pride, BMlignlly, o^the mere lova 
of notoriety, may lead men to act at vllMnous a pan in poll* 
tics, as if they had srtd themselves to be tbe demoted tools of a 
parly : while their iniqniious glomes are for more daugerao* 
from their lofty pretemions of impartiality, and tbeir evIdM 
intrepidity in alternately tradacin| both our great political fac> 
tioos. 

At tiM ,bcad of this class of professed impartial ists, starida 
the anthor of Xi< FattHcal Regtttir. This man is pos«essed of 
very uncommon merit of a peculiar Itlnd. Without any educa- 
tion beyond the element* of reading and writing, and tvitboat 
a systematic knowledge of any sol^eet, he was led by the ardour 
and eneiyy of his mind to adventure into the world as a political 
autkor. The ftiry of his deelanutiont forced attention: and 
titoagh his ign»rann and outragivui viiknet have fret|tiently 
brought him into contempt and iUgram, he bns at length surceed.- 
ed, by invincible peraevcnince, in nU«tng binlilelf, solely by bit 
political writings, from poverty aad •obwurity, to very co^ 
(idocabieaflhieace, and very g(«at Bt>(p<4e:(y. With solid W 
formation, with a sound judgment, witki(3[>n4rmed prinriples of 
truth and honesty,..(uch a character wbal^kavetieea iovalnable: 
he might have proved the terror of^-^flticHl profiigacy, and 
have improved, the age by .lils. vigonius chastlsemenU. But 
destitute, as we siiall hereafter sbeti^Vin to be, of an tbeafe re* 
■{uisitcBt hisardour, his lntrepidlly,4iisperseve^nce, serve only- 
tu diffuse more widely, aod to Impress more deeply the dictatat 
of bis igooraoce, his pr^ndices, his perverted passions. The 
raidJIipg and low«r<lamet of the community, who rertd to be>' 
lieve, and wito baae deither leisure nor (nclination to sift fallacies 
to the bottiMB, haie TAe. PalMfal BegUter constantly Iq their

eagcnesB : It is, therafore, of importance, ttiat we should bring 
to. some lest thft infallibility of this gospel, to which some ifie*

cation of this principle was exhibited in his late attack on

wards to be treated of syttematically by some other MKbor, he 
makes no scruple, from a few similar liioughts, toinfin'tlMsi the 
work has been ftolen from him. A Mrioiit example efthia ha* 
lately occnrred with regard to a pamphlet published by a Mr.

sttSice to support, In a great laeasure, our inanufactareii « but in 
the exportation that louic of them may exprrience privalioas, 
we mus< have recourse, as far as potsible, to hemp and flax, in 
order lo provide occupation for tho>e manufacturers who would 
DO lonnr be employed with articles of cotton. It were desir- 
able that we would circumscribe our coatumptioo within the 
products of the materials thegfdwth of our soil, and restrain the 
unhappy etfrrls of habits and taste contracted for manufactarrs, 
that xvould render us dependent upon foreign countries. 

" The matrrinls for dying may become scarce — but mnny of 
thei« ni»y be replaced by tha productions of oar soil. We will 
dispense with the rest by a sliy:hl sacrifice of some colours, 
wMcli may plaase fro* their apparent greater beauty^ without 
adtiiii^ any thtug to the' intrinsic goodnrss of the article. Be- 
sides, nasmali rcKance is lo be placed on the Keuius.of our ma- 
nufarturers : it will triumphovrr thosedifHcullifS. 

" 'nie' chaniteU,' which tn spke efjhese usurpntions, will 
remain open to importation, may aot suffice for the consumptiou 
of sugar and cofl'ee | tlicsa objecis of a secondary utility may 
bcaome scarce < but the great mats of the nation will .not suffer 
from this temporary privation : habits of ioduli^ucc loo widely 
Indulged will be counteracted ood restrained by the rise in the 
price. 

" And besides, ls.it to be supposed that the Great Nation 
will allow Itself to be intimidated by the privation of tome 
futile ci^jnymenls ? Iler armies have endured, without amtr- 
mur, the must pinching Wants: that great example will not 
baye been held out in vain ; and when we have in view lo re- 
conquer the independence of the seas; when we have in view to 
■vsfue and redeem commerce from the ruinous arts of piracy 
that are Juridically exercised against it; when we have in view

teeretly increased by successive reinforcements to 25,000. On 
the 8tb of October, Hassan Pacha assembled all his force at 
Knila,'nn the Buzawa, not far from Sent za, and on the lOlh 
he passed (he river. He immediately advanced against the Ser- 
vian positions ; hat the latter fell back at every point, and |n 
t\\i evening the Turks reached the Castle of Soeco. On Ihe four 
following days the Servians made several attacks, and on the 
15th, having received large reinforcements, tliey repuUed the 
MnssOlmen. Follnwingup these ndvantagei, they re-pussed the 
Baaawa, and advanced to Vartx, a few miles from Tarajevn.

Nov. 87.— Mr. J, Clay presented a Memorial from sun- 
dry inhabitants and trailers of the city of Philadelphia, 
praying that the .4ct prohibiting the importation of trertain 
goods, wares, and merchiuidicei passed the ISth April, lb06, 
may be repealed. 

Mr. Clay moved, that the Memorial b« referred to the 
Committee of Coouncrceand Maiiufacl(ir«^, 

Mr. Howan hoped the Petition would not be referred to 
anv Committer. He thought it would be beneath the di>;< 
nifyoftho Hpnse to give it any consideration. Had, he 
been in Congress at the time the law pHSned, he would have 
voted agniiiat it t but as it had ptuned, and as we li»d re< 
ceived.a fresh' insult from Groat Britain in the attack 00 
the Chesapeak, he would not vote for its repeirt, 

Mr. Crowniushield said, thnt from the rumours which 
were afloat, and the dinpositinn of Great Britiin, he enter> 
tained no hojie that she would do America justice. Sho 
was rocking great j>reparations, endeavouring to decoy thp 
Indians on our frontiers, and was arming ner Militia iu 
Canada and Nova Scotia.' 

Mr. Randolph said, if the prayer of the petitioners was 
improper, would >t not be 'bettor to expose their errors in a 
maxterly Report from a Committee, thaato slam the door 
in their faces* and afloctiug all the airs cf nn Asiatic Sove- 
reign, refilse to' hear them I We were, he believed, <m tho

the vary footsteps of the British Ministry on the eve of an 
AmrritMn War, and on the eve of the French ^^ar.— The 
House, Mr, R, said, had now been |n session five -n-eeksi

iTEST ISDIES. 

^■^ Jamaica. — The House of Assembly of Jamaica have 
maile a Report on the Act passed in the la<t Session of 
Parliament, for the.. Abolition of the Slave Trade. It is 
the object ^of thi.s lU'porl to reprcsuiit the stop put to the 
importation -of Slaves, as ruinous to the Coluaies. This 
has been always the argument of those who opposed that 
benevolent measure ; but it is obvious that if it were true, 
it raunot be proved by any effects, which have yet resulted, 
from the abolition, as sutficirnt time hai hot yet elapsed 
to shew either benefits or di.sa<hantn;rcj of the Act. If, 
however, the wisdom of the Legislature had not adopted 
that measure, it is to be feared that the Colonists would 
have experienced the dreadful effects of an abolition, not 
brought about by the inftneuce of law, but by violenee. 
The constant and unlimited importation of Negroes from 
Africa would have finally reduced our West India Islands 
to the melancholy situation of St. Oominso. 

'Thefollowiag arethe liesolutions of the Committee of 
the House-: — 

'** BesoWed, That the Act ^f the Imperial Parlianent for 
abolishing the Slave Tnide, is pregnant with evils to this Island, 
Biiiitating not only against its grperal welfare and interest, but 
threatening its total drstmctioD as a Britiib West India Colonv. 
That depriving this extensive and yet unsettled Island of the 
nt^ansof a sopply of lubnnrrrs from Africa, to caltivate the 
rail, mwit be eventoally ruinoas to the proprietors and others 
interested in it : many industrion and enterprising settlers, who 
have braved t^e difficulties »d4 hardships rI ways attnidiut on 
infant eiobellisbineots in the interior and mountainous situation*, 
will, with their fanrilies, be redaced to poverty and wretrlicd- 
|iess; and, wh;n thrM settlements arc aliandoned hy their pre- 
sent hbabitanis, they Vill become the baunts and fAstoesses of 
diisaflwted and rebellions nrjpvcs: That properties in possession 
of mortgagees, receivers, guardians, and others, most shortly 
fall a sacrifice to this Parliamentary regulation : benuise, from 
their peculiar drcamstaoccs, tliey cannot he supplied with la- 
bourers, the result of which wilt be, to deprive a numerous de- 
,scriptiodr^f persons, from the earliest state of infancy to the 
quwt advanced and helpless ages, of the common ineans of cdu- 
ottion and sapport." 

The Jamaica Papers received on Tuesday, eontsiin a 
Memoriid of the of the Committee of Planters, Merchants, 
and others, interested in the West Iiidia Colonies, whirb 
though presented so long aeo as la^t June, ha« not, till 
DOW, been published in any Paper in'ihis Cpiuttry, In this 
M«morM the Flajiterf complaib. 



" That where tbe rdaication of the oav'igatinn System woulil 
i>e beneficial to.fbo British Planter,' it is rigidly enforced^ and, 
where the enfdrremeot of It'would be beneficial to 'him, it h 
uiiarroantabi/ rHaxed-by the novel permission granted to • 
Neutral Power of carrying the pvodace of his rivals to uader- 
sell bim«t the Kuropean market. 

" That year MeaorialUts are unwilling to intrude their eon. 
cerw upon the iaportaint relations of the Mother Country wills 
Neutral Powers t but humbly conceive, that iteanooi reasimaUy 
be expected that Great Britain should »m her Coloniue de.cay, 
herself deprived of Ihut Great bnlanr* of foreign trade, which 
she commanded by the export of herrurplus coloninl prodace, 
and tbe Colonics of Powers, with whom' she is at war, ag- 
qraodized by the continuance of a mistaken and injtiribus 
.jwllcy. 

" That yonr Memorialists, on these grounds, hnmbly suggest 
that the now acknonledged and extreme distress of th« 'West 
(- India Colonies oF Great Biltain, calls apon Ooveraaient Car a 
'revision of theexisl^^ystem, tespeetiag tbe-trade of Nenteal*

of a change .in that system, so far as may be necessarjr for the

HAYTl. 
Christophe had for some time bean coniined with a se- 
vere indisposition, of which Fetion had taken advantat;* 
to rally hispartizaos ted iwade several places, which 
adhered to his rival. On his recovery, Christophe lo.H no 
time in taking the field ; and his skill and energy enabled 
him to defeat with great slaughter, those coii>s of h\ti eae- 
mies which he first eacountered. Petioa, deterittitied to 
sheiv himself not less active, took adrantagia of his rivail's 
absence, to advance with all his fbroes against Sit. Marc

After the unsurcessftil atiack'of the 2(>th of September, ano- 
ther desperate aHrmpt of St, Marc was determined - upon, for 
which all the forces In the South of Ilaytl were collected. The

panies of arlillrry, and a squadron of cavalry, and set off hiof 
self from ths Cape on the S3d of October. On the S4th be en-

''^CT aation, going to or from the ports qt Britain,

'*• decree serTes to shew how far Bo)rAM»tc Wy be 
""«* kejfwd the bounds, not only of policy, bot wen of

wliich the British Island* will sustaui, from a blockade 
by sea, while the epemy dares not send out a single vcsseU 
u;ilesvby stealth^into the Ocean, pannot much alarm us « and., , 
the MDic circuin«tanr«s must frae neutral* from any con- 
siderable apprebeniion*. The terms of the decree, hou- 
ever, shew bow ready h« is to sacrifice the interest* of hi» 
owa subject*! aud of ail ol^r «a4io«* in the uaiierie, to 
gratify kis nng«v«rBable.-r«*e)itia«nt. • 

- But it is France that taa.it chiefly «iiA«r from this im- 
potent ebullitiott of vongeanre. To tha d««f«e is subjoined, 
in the. UantUittt m Circular Letter from the H>ni*ler of 
the iBterior, in which the cpia^rable condition to which 
France i* reduced by the prohibitory edicts of A^roiasier, 
isjorcibly though uniatnttionaliy depicted. The Minister ' 
iieni breathes nuthing of that lotty tone which has hereto- 
fore promiAed the speedy conquest of Britain, the sack of 
London, and the utter annihilation of the great rival of 
France. He tells the owners of privateers, that they will 
have greater chnnve for booty; he expresses a hope that 
neutrals may poiuibly elude our cruisers i he consoles his 
cpuotrymentlnt their privations will be oaly temporary t 
and thnt suhstitntes will probably be fonnd for the neces- 
saries and cpitiforU of which they will be deprived. This 
is truly an altered tone for a MiirLilcr of France ; and what 
must give tho slriwgest idea of the iud«fensible absurdity 
of. her ruler** present measures. 

I" Fii the course of the week, a ntim'ber of American 
papers have been received. They cuntaia the first proceed- 
ings in Congress relative to the disputes with Great Britain. 
There it rauHi bullying in the tone of the Americar^ 
orators, yet it appears evident that they- are much afraid 
of the consequences of a 'rupture with this country, as' 
indeed tliey may. The merchants of Philadelphia and of 
several other places, have pre«entcd strong memorials 
against the Non-lntportation Act, «4iich the poliry 
of Jefferson ha* never mforeed, though left at hi* dis- 
cretion. These memorials, which discover such 'a marked 
aversion to any rupture with Great Britain, have been re- 
jected by a majority ; but at the snme time, some vio- 
lent Resolution* agaiiitt Britainjhavo been rejected with 
equal firmness. . Tiie Report on the affair of tlie Chess- 
peake was very intemperate i bnt the Junction of the great 
opposition orator, Mr. Randolph, formerly the staunch 
friend of Britain, with the' advocates for war, shews his 
opinion that the American Government is inclined to paei-'' 
fie measure). It u, indeed, said that our wise abandonraeDt' 
of any pretension to search ship* of war, ha* entirely donn 
away the hostile feeling* of the American Government i 
and in this case we need not faar the foolish viole'nto of- 
those demagogues who would vainly attempt to wrest from 
us oven the right of searching nierchantmen. 

There is one eircunutance which we cannot pass dnno- 
tieed. Lord EasaiNe, it scerai, had some time ago, from 
what motive we do not presume to conjecture, invested a 
considerable portion of hi* property in the American fund*. 
When hi* son wa* appointed Americno Aivbassador, this 
Tory cireumstMice wa* stat«d ks one of the catues of thaf.

with the lat# Orders of Council, and particularly to ascer-

of American produce, on board such American ships as 
siiituM, pursuant to their Orders, tonch at British ports. 
'I°h« in^niry of the Deputation was principally directed to 
tlte article 4(f Cotton, and the answer of Mr. Perceval was 
i[uile drcisfve, that Miuisters do intend to propose a duty

Drarottic Criticism, or something wbicli bears that title, is 
now so much in request, thuf ar Newspaper can scarcely obtAla 
a great ci^<^llalio(^ withkut'pr»*eoling a preny lurge t* Hon 
of >ach matter. ' We shall, "therefore, devote a considerable' 
space in The Nationxi. KnouTca to this f^ihinnablc sub- 
jrct, although we, do not inieod to treat it in the fa*hioni.ble 
•tyie. Of late, in the most Vopular of the periodical Criiique«, 
the absence of sci«ntIBc principle has bei.-a supplied by Ihc 
superfluity of spleen, and the vrant of eiuerience has b»«a 
coiopeosated by the ebullition of wit. The Yiillacy has ptra!<>i 
tbePt^Mc: because every body can admire what Is trilliant 
in wh. but -every body caaoot detect what t< errnoeuus ia 
'Science. The spectators ia n Theatre are diitniit fnuo the stage, 
and fo'^l dazzlci'theireyes with all the lustre of rpkl gold s The 
readers c^ those current criticisms are remote from those circles 
in which the Drama is oaiterstood, and puiuted aulilbesis strikes 
"them with the force of truth. In the columns of this J*aper 
we shall consider the criticism of the Drama not as a tatk 
which may be slurred by idleness or blotted by caprice : but w 
a science posscatiug principles as certaia and as exalted as the 
general criticism of poMry, of painting, of scnlptare, or of any 
other of the Kine Arts. 

The Drama, considered as a Fine Art, which may become 
the sntiicct of criticism, divides itself oatarally into two parts t. 
the. one is the art. of Dramatic Composition, which wc may - 
criticise as fully as any poetry can be criticised : and the otiier 
is the art of Acting, which can be criiicisfed as fully as we may 
criticise Painting or Sculpture. To dt-aw a parallel between 
the art of Poetry and the art of Dramatic Composition 
would be idle, becntne the lattrr is al.awe4 to be a 
branch of the farmer: but we ara no less certain of oar 
ground, when we assert that there is a strong analogy 
in tbe tbrce arts of PaMrting, Scnlptore, ' and Acting. All 
equally tend to the same object : that is, to plesiie by Ibe just 
'representation of whit is striking, inlrreitiag, or ai^aeable.in 
nature. Acting l>ears the same rclittive distance to Sculpture, 
that Scalptnrebean to Paiatiag— far Paiatsng represents Matnre 
by lines mid colours laid on a flat sarflice to be viewed tnai a.' 
single point : Sculpture goas Airiber, and represents the round- 
hness and real pruportinn af Nature in every point from which 
a statne <can be viewed i but Acting sarpasMTs ttiein both, 
and with a Pjometheau power, l^ve* matiua, ai:d Toice, and 
life! 

Bu't though Acting, thus considered, of all the Fine Art* 
comes neare>t to Nature's Prototype ; yet it is the most diUcult 
to be criticised, because its productions arc the must evanescent. 
tf we wish to decide on Ibe merit nf a picture or a statue, we 
may keep it before our cyeS, unvarying in its ctpro,tion and un* 
iiljared in its workmanship, for au hour, for a day, fbr years : 
if we disapprove it at a first glance, we have opportonllies of 
discovering iu beauties by dej^rees, of revising, perhaps totally 
changing onr original Jadginent. Bat the representation «>f 
Nature, which is prdducM by Acnoj;, vanishes as soon as it b 
beheld « and though tb« speetatar mv aa4 baiipta to be-in the 
right frame of mind at the moment when the aciur delivers a 
particular patiage, there is no opportaaity of arresting the 
tmi^s ia order to asccrusn tiieir merits or dciiscts. 

Yet, though Acting is thus of all the Pine Arts the nHiot dif- 
ficult to be criticised, it is iievertbetes the most naiversally and 
tbe most conAdnrtly canvassed. An ueinfbrmcd pcidoa who 
enters a gallery nf pictures or statn'm, if he gives aay' opinion 
at all, usually gives it with some sort of prs,*rve : be foi the 
OMMt part leans to the (Wvnnnibie sid^ : ond, even when he dia- 
apuroves a work, he tnaally makes use of some soch phnise ly, 
" 1 doa't admire it, bat very likely that is becaase I kasiw 
" nothing abont painting or scsitpta-v." Butalmaat evory body 
WhoesMers a Theatre, thinks kfnkself eirthled to give a pusillve 
opinion on Acting, although be perhaps raav never iaveseea' 
fifty plays in Ms whole life. No one sborid believe •haterrry 
reasonalile crralu>e whoie Nature Kas broaght into tbo worid» 
can JBdge of acting, beeanse good acting Is a reasonalile repie- 
seotatioa of ^rataie t/Jor Acting, as wrU aii the other Art« by 
which Nature is rrprescnt«(), has rales whirb'directi nod rules

luleii nldcti cannot he understood nnd applied without orifrinal 
ij.'-te, exteniive leading, theatrical iDlercounr, and long ex- 
perience. 

.. If tliewposidoiH be trne, our readers will not be aarpr'ued, 
when we declare the very low opinion we eoterlnin of the thea- 
ii'l.«lcrilira, who blot the pcriodtral pnljlicalions of the preheat 
•' .^e. Ai dramatic nalnre now appears, rcdaeed to regular trien- 
'iflc principles, yet ca'suallx " snatching a grace ^evond the 
" reach " of any settled prinriplc at.in,»ttired in a garb, which 
t;iough it ought to Bt her closely, yet is mit the dress which 
■be wears on ordinary occaaiont, sometimes restrained by the 
tiecessity of subordination, and lomclimes stimulated for the dis- 
play or magnificent effects, there can be but very few persons 
trho have the natural qualifications forjudging nicely of actlng,- 
.lad fewer yet to whom education and practice have imparted 
their final and ncceswry skin. In our theatres there'mnst ai- 
ways be a. scarcity of fiue actors, heraiuc io the hlghei^ walk of 
the profession no msuKnn be really grenf, without a Hnion of 

, all the qualities which can give executive brilliatiey to arrurale 
t':inception ; among which are many of the powers of poetical 
•'(■inbluatinn, all the qualities of discriminative analysis, and .-ill 

• 'lequaliiies of a finished gentleman. There is as a Inmenlnblr 
fcarcity of fine critics in our newspapers j and it would be dif- 

. Ijcult to find four of these authors who possess poetry enough to 
' f'ol, and yef coolness enough to discriminate: guiety enough 
11 laugh, and yel tlrgance enough fo nddcrsland kigh-brecding : 
>i ho linow the gieprNroom sufiiiientfy to disttnguivh how much 
.:!rcct is produced by (he author, (ind how much by the actor: 
nho, niih all these natural and artificial requisites for forming 
''ioirJud»raeut, have adequate powers of composition for de- 
livering that jiidgmt-nt gracefully, and so much moderation as 
' ) ah«tain from condemning unmercifully. 

.■Vfter having udd so much of the requisites for perfect critl- 
<i«m, it woulu be the height of vanity and presumption to pro- 
mise that our criticisms wHI be peifcct; but we may be allow- 

• it to sayi tbat if we are not capable of doing all that these 
principles require, we trait to avoid what these principles con- 
■'emo. Before we aniuiBdvert upon a play or upon an actor, 
it \i our custom tn study the play itself, with a view either Af 
•iircussing its merits, or of estimating iu characten. Before we 
ttuike positive. ussertlons, we shall talie care to ascertain our 
lUrts ; and having once made up our minds upon truth, we shall 
iifver sacrifice that truth to party pique, or to the vanity of 
;>uiated Jtvlc. We shall criticise new plays with lu much c^- 
•lour at old ones, and eodfavonr to recommend our observations 
"a the actors, by pointing out the b*anties of their conceptions, 
■irA expUiniag the principles in which they may fail, rather 
t'liin by the puffs of person.-il partiality, or the vulgarity of per- 
--'iiKil abiise. While other critics write tn obtain fame f<^r their 
■ «n ingenuity, we shall laboiirtoexfaibil truth for our readers) 
i4!das truth, in theatrical affairs, has so long been a stranger to 
:';e public, we have no doubt that the public will receive her 
\>ith all the bospitolity which a stranger should claim! 



On Monday the SSlh of December a Pantomime was produced 
r t Orury-lane called FarHond, or Harhqmn Negro. This 
; ece w;ai so exceedingly defective In Its machinery, that on the 
iVst tight It very niirrowly escaped a total condemnatins. Nor 
< in we discover that, iadependenUy of theawkwardueKsof worlc- 
'-.cnandtberoneonpss of ropes, the plot of this paoloroine isde- 
• "rviog of commendation. It i« difficult to comprehend the mo- 
' ive or use of the triclfs or scenic exbibitioM : and the piece ha« 
'>^cordingly been litUe successful. Mr. Ilartland is a graceful 
^ -arUquin, tasA Mrs. Sharp is assuredly the best dancer who has 
1 'F some years represemed the Columbine. Nor can we allow 
ift well-earned popularity of Mr. firiraaldi, the Clown of Co- 
v^nlfiarden, to obstrutt oar praises of Mr. Laurent, whoacU 
> >e blnndcrer at Drory Lane. Mr. Grimaldi is famous for put-

On the foIlnwii\g Wednesday, Mrs. H. Johnston, wlm Im 
for some time been absent from the Ixindon Boards, prrsealnl 
herself as Beatrice, in Sbakspeare'x Much Ado Atout Stthht. 
Her private history had naturally created her some eirnia 
who, during the eariy part of the play, were . cxce(llis{l} 
boisterous I their murmur gradually fell away, and Mrs. II. 
Johnston is now, in all probability, engaged at Coveot-ganlrB 
Theatre. Mn. H. Johnston is certainly a very pretty woniao, 
and so far abe is qualified for the representation of Bealrict; bsl 
Beatrice is a wit as welt as a beauty, and the character rrqiiira 
intellectual powers far beyond any which Mrs. H. Johnston Ifu 
within our recollection e\-liirpd. She spoke in a silver tQiie,ind 
walked in a delicate man'b i she displayed all the re<|ui<i>n 
that we expert in lite Ladg Carolim of John BmU, but did sol 
convey that light, yet poignant satire, that keeu good naiatt,] 
that sparkling but eoergflic mind, which ihouO aniiii<>te ik 
Beatrice of ifiicA Ade. Mr. Lewis played Benedick i\ith iqli- 
nite spirit and whiini tbc character that he rrpresciiled vtai 
highly diverting, but it was a Benedick rather of .Mr. [.enit's 
conception, th«i of Sb.tk^peare'i. In the lightest parts «f all 
these characters, Mr. Lewis is inimitable: acme of Aeii«!Jci:]s 
gaiety was, therefore, well pourlraycd by him; bat 0cu/A'i-lri< 
a man of more than surface, a wit whs has a^ mucli of resiM s> 
of jest. These features af the cliaracter were neutraliird br 
Mr. Lewis; nnd that colour of character, wliich ought u> hare 
been a mi zture, was rendered one brililaut scarlet. Mr. Mtto'es 
was too shrewd in Dogherri/, fur Jiugberry is not like the Yori.- 
shiremon of the modem stage, a clever fisol, but a mere ss- 
perannuated simpleton. Mr^ C. KembU is |»laoed benealh hi) 
merit, in so wretched a character as Cfaarf/o,- but he did si 
much as possible fur the part ; and Miss Bolton, in Here, dis- 
played great sweetness and feeling.

other countries, .vcasclii arc imroodiatcly char.'ercd, g»o* 
embarked, aod the inarkst stocked with every vendibk

■econd thii energetic (birit ofonr countrymen by the cow*

. The eyes of our mercautile adventurers, are, of course 
at' present turned on the Brazil*. «s the most desira^N

•ewed, tiic market be overstocked, the commoditiet be 
naiiited t» it, awl tlie result to -our commerce be, at first, 
JUIrcMiog insteoU of profilable> 

Therxtentof IheBrazib is nearly thirteen times greater 
tbaa that 5f Great BriUtiu t but ibt buundlew |ilaiu9 are At 
}«l ilnuMt wholly Uucultivatedt aAd its population does uut 
cuted aboTC uue million. Of these not above three hun- 
ini tbvusand aro whites and freemen i the re^ consist of 
the Datives, who ha>'e survived the oppression of their 
t'ortoipiese nuuterst and of negroes imported from Africa 
Id iif their mines. 

It thus appcmfS) both from the extmt and nature of the 
|M|i>iialiait, that the market of the Brasils must) in its 
pfneat state, be limited. We arc, however, to take into 
iW scc0Wit'tbat a i»rgt numbef of eraiipraiits will now ac> 
«Mg^; Bad follow the Court from Portugal i and that 
&ae new scltiers are much more accustomed ti> the con* 
taioeie] uf the old worki, and vrill conse(|uentl^ have a 
Bwk greater proportional ilemandfor its productions. We 
u; tbo tak-e it for granted, tliat the whole suppljr of the 
Bmili vrill be in our own hands, since the Americans, the 
odj otfa«r nati'oil that can &l present be permitted tu trade 
Uine, are in want of almost exactly the lame articles as 
Ux Brazilians. 

The commodities Which, ° at preiient, wHI be chiefly 
tnotcd, are all articles of dress. Cotton, both coarse and 
fioe, will be la great dcmttnd, but woollens will also be 
Midi required, as the more iu>uthern parts of the Brazils, 
tnd even the higher ground uf the mure northern, arc 
luliject to Colds and damps at particular seasons of the 
itar. Hats, - shoes, boott, and every inaiiufUctureU ar* 
ticlcof drcsi will be e»|ually m rcquiMtion. 

Hfte, as id Ncirlh America, every Article of furniture, 
Wh iron and wood, is imported, owing to the total want 
of internal mlnuract'urcs. lUidtvareof every description, 
Jndlcn, saddlery, r.ll utciuiSs both for the mines and for 
■Minndry, must assy lie supplied from this couatry. The 
MMHRiption of theiP. la'trf articles must rapidly increase 
vitk tjic prtv^ress of cultivation, and we may in a few 
inn, find the dmiHind for them in the Brazils not less than 
unarcat present in North Amcric:). 

Winc«, and the various luxuries of Rurone, which were 
'wswly procured from Portugal, must now be drawn 
tat this count ry> 

The princi|»il imports which our merchants, will derive 
im the Brazils ia rotum, aro articles capable of fnrther 
bRofiicturc, and consequently extremely benefici^il to our 
Biantfj. Cotton, wool, hides, tallow, the precious metals, 
siln-, and wiMjd of evefy description botn for furniture 
•ml •hip'liuiiding, Nearfr all the principal articles, which 
*e iave been accustomed to derive from Ihc Baltic, may 
wpiocured ill this uew kingdom) and will, of coarse, in 
»>f arssent stale «f things, be that part of iU produce

1 TffE DOMINION OF THE SEAS. 

Tbe DomiDion of the Seas is (he forest bout of BritoBs, the 
BWt ncred portiun of oar nalioDal treasure*. We are up io 
umt at Ike slighteit intimatioD (hat thia poasenionis in danger : 
iti if aay inierested person wishei to set us by the ears with 
tMW foie^ power, or to procure tbe establishment of tome || 
viUaium monopoly, be h^ only (o produce a belief, by some 
lilanilleuid very low! declamativ!is,\that our Dominion of the 
Swnaoot otherwise be preserved. In the same maouer the 
rr^sf any pernicious rcgolatioo, the offspring ot jgnoiance 
ir prejudice, may be prcvcn(ed j.and the real interests «f tbe 
(Dwtrjr be sacrificed to ima|inary apprebeiisioDS. 

When Ctllaf ies of ibis sort are daily played off Bpoa the 
^Mic cTcdaiity, wben our attachment to tbe dominion of the 
Kn it so food as to blind ns occasionally to our best interests, it 
Isa utioml olyect aftbefirst Importance to ascertain dis(inctly 
da ml natare of this domioloD, the foundation on which it 
MsiiUy rests, and the propriety and impropriety «f (he regu- 
lation by which we attempt to maintain it. Surb an inquiry 
mat particularly Bccesiary at a period like tbe present, when 
ik<aalni«a of tbe aeas is tiie watcb-word of one of our fac- 
Um, ui whea the preservatiou of this favourite object is held 
lorlk, without any arxument, ai a full a^olpgy for unjust aqd 
(kUc Mttuti Wifll wrhlch ' it hat'io reality no connection.

I'M Mr maritiflie commerce feoai etery species af ii\|ary ; 
kinist with certatoty of nicoess every naval anBOment which 
or MiM, or all the nations' in the world, may scud into tbe 
m: xadto present at all times lo formidable an aspect that no 
■Misi am presume lo disturb tbe rights and tranquillity of the 
•OSS vithont omr ]>ennis!iion. To these we may add the ho- 
*>*n sf the flag, an acknowledgment of oar sovereignty : 
*'>'*(kiHh a prerogative is an eye-gore to other nations, and of 
■"3lse«faateverto ourselves, yet it is a sacrifice to (heir pride, 
'Msir teunlrymea would be unwilling to forego, and which 
■(■iss great boon io others to yield, 

fsriB these purpose* it is evident that onr navy at .present is 
■*« tkMi sufficient t aod -that we eqjoy :the dominion of tbe 
ni as eempletely ai the domkiioD of tbe British Islands. It 
vmU de aadness in any power, or any conbinotiAn of powers, 
**Mnip( (0 if rot it from us ; tbe attempt could ouly lead 
■•theaaaikilatton of their -own mari(tme forces and commerce. 
11^ (keteforr, our naval power can be maintained in (he same, 
"teulj (ht same proportion (o (bat of other states which it 
Udi It preieat, oitr dominion of the sea* can never be io the 
XMUcstdaifer. 

tiattwe CiM asserted this dominion in the time of the long 
nrtiaMat, onr naval preponderancy bat been continuaUy on 
<h iioeaie. At first the Dutch, aod afterwards the French 
I 'ociapable of maiotaining a doubtful cootett, but now every 
"^■■■l hope of openly opposing our fleets on the seas, is at an

But though these considerations may sufliclenHy show (he {*.• y

adopted for the mainteoance of our naval predonderaney, lMyir4 
ever nugatory or pernicious they really may be, are not iodis-t 
peasaUy Bcoestary to the end proposed. We allude id paidM'/ 
lartothe provisions of tbe Kavigfttlon Act, which have beeslf 
demoMtrated to be eztiemely iigarious to oar national weaHk,/ 
bat which StiH have iaoumerable advocates, from, tbeir «ap^

be very di«(inc(ly shown, that whatever has a tendaacy to dlnU^

this truth be luccrtained to tbe satitfactioa «f oar coantryaieoV 
little opposition would be made to the abolitioa of whatever ik. 
penrioions in tbase fegntationi. ' 

The Navigatioo Laws were oimecenary to aor naval saperiok 
rity, even at tlie time when tbey were enaeled ; nor was thifi 
tbe otyect which their ftramen had in viesr. Tbe Long Fadl»n 
meat, desirous t« extend and seenre its own InAnoce, proposeA 
(o fbrm an union with Holland so strict, that tut tw« state* 
should seem to farm portions of the 'saan empire. Tbe SatcfaV

BqgUsb lepublicns, fired with indignation at this refiisal, ra-> 
solved to chastise the Dstcfa for irhat they accounted-^ i«t«M' 
Icrable piece of insolence ; and the Mavigatioa Act, which ti*>! 
po«e<i severe restrictions on foreign nations trading to Britiunf 
and wholly excluded (hem from her colonies, was immedia(clyi 
patwd. The terms «f this Act were general, but its proviiiena« 
exclusively affected the Dutch, the oniy nation which at than 
time possessed any commerce. B«t the intcntioo of this -iaiw 
was merely to ruin the commerce of Holland at Ear as possible,; 
without any idea that it was necessary to oar naval tuperiarity.< 
The vrar wirich imnediotely succeeded Its enactmeat prov«d, 
that it was wholly unoecessary for this purpose; for we de- 
feated tbe Dutch in every general engagentcrtt, and we «o«« 
linued to display the same superiority both over them and the- 
French, in seme succeeding wart, before lit* KavigatioK Jkol, 
had been eofereed with any degree of vigitaace. - « 

We shall find, that as thw act was unmiWsiary to onraaT^

'll has merely obliged us to go direi-t to France or Russia, for 

, <he respective produce of these countries, tustead of going to an 

' iatermedlate depot in Holland for them, a step which, rarely, it 

' i» aalikelY <rar merchaats should ever be indliHHl to (atte. We 

~nmiat coBCcive that a single vessel Imt been nddni to the Bri-

Arodueed, unless io the vessels of that country or in British vcs- 
tth. But wbQe the mannfartum of Britain ronliane to be fai 
gMMt dmaad with almost every aation, U Is evident that the 
MMcIt of every country, whirb ran be spared from its own 
ooastiag trade, will have more temptalion to bring Its produce 
ti Great Britain and receive her goods in return, than to any in- 
termediate nation wbich might afterwards re-^export them 
hither I and the British vessels, when they can carry out a sale- 
Ale cargo of their own goods. Will always be able to bring 
komein return the produce of the coantry to which they trade 
tt aheap at any other nation. This is futteicnt to shew how 
wry limited must be the eflSect of this legvlatiai «f the Na- 
vf^tion Act i« -increasing our shipping) bat the argu- 
nwnt win bettill Bare unanswerable wbcn we shew how little 
•f the maritime commalce, either of our own, or of, other coun- 
tries, can be affected by the vrhole class of iu provisions. 
I Wesball first take example from the trade of France. Beforr 
t]w war, in the year 1192, while we were stHl' at peace with 
tkat powOTt the whole vessels employed in oar trade with 
yrance, that entered inwards, or cleared outwards, amounted to 
S,S01, carryiog 217,366 tons. Of these only 8,706, carrying 
IM,Q67, were Britisb ; and this latter ramber could alone be af- 
fceted by our navigation laws, as these laws were then in (bll 
fcree. Byt the number of vessels employed in the c o nstl ngtmde 
of Francff, that entered inwards, or rieurrd outwards in the year 
1801, amounted to 60,890, carrying 1,»90,S48 tons; and from 
Ulis traffic not a tingle vessel or ton could, even in the event of 
•cace, be deducted by our navigation laws. This example may 
th«w bow little effect they have io diminishing the siOpping of 
foreign nations i and we have equal proof of their insignificance 
in increasing our own. 

From the conimerce of the port of London, to which all the 
Bast Indian commerce, and the greater part of oar forrlgn rom- 
merce in general is eoaveyed, an estimate, may be formed of the 
woportion between the extent of (hat portion of unr thip- 
ft ^, which can be affected by the regulations which we hate 
■tated, and that portion which cannot. By a statement made 
^-from the public accounts of the port of London, it apprarr 
that the number of vessels which tjrantported the coiaraerre of 
the port of London for the year 1798, amonntcd to 13,444, 
carryiH lt118>$l* <■>■•' o^ <*■***• i^rlW vessels, carrying 
1,188,168 Ions, were employed in the ceaMing trade, and only 
9^146, carrying 526,148 tons, in both our foreiga and colonial 
trade. In ether parts of the kingdom, the proportion mast be 
ttill greater in favour of the coasting trade i and we may heace 
infer that the whole of our shippiagi which could polsiby be ' 
•tfet-ted by those regulations of our Navigation Laws, wUeh 
we have hitherto discussed, dors not amoum to above • twen> 
(iftb or thirtieth part of our maritime trade. 

Bcgulations which can possibly affect so very trifling a part of 
oar commerce may surely be considered as unnecessary, and as 
in BO degree conpcaiaUag by their atility any serious national 
^Utadvaataget. Biit wo i»ve proofs by no means doabtful,

inM e ai Bi RVrli^ tb« laMtiAi, the aResiity of our affairs com- 
pelled lis td relax oor navigation laws in a degree hitherto uo- 
known since their eoactmeat i Isr thiae famous laws are cnlni- 
lated for times of peace, when we need no increase of onr Ba«al 
power, but cnonatbc enforced in the time of war, when weneei 
such aid, without depriving our coiamerce of all that vut aud 
indispensable protection whicfi it derives from nrulral flags. Bat 
during the relaxalinn which -<^-e have mentloneil, what wastbe 
consequence ? A dimunitiun of our slilppiitg and seamen ? No— 
a prodigious Increase even under the most disadvantagcons cir- 
cumstances, and when there was every lure to foroigncn from 
the high j»ri^e of our native frerghtige. In lire year 1792, tb^ 
mimber of suitor* on boiird British vessels, according to the rc- 
tnnis made to Parliament, amounted to II8,?86. lnlS02, llie 
number of men employed in Our maritime trade was greater by 
between twenly and thirty thousand. Yet in the space of (be 
intervening ICn years, a number of scaineA, perhaps one ha!/ 
more than file whole of those employed in our iiavigalino in 
I79S, had been transferred from (he merchant vessels to thenar} ; 
for in 1801, the compliment of the British navy, in spite nf its 
numerous losses, amounted to 130,000 men. VuHng tlic same 
period, there were added to the British merchant shipping ua 
less )han 2798 Vessels, carrying 303,293 tons. What ran I* a 
stronger demonstration, of utter indifference to our naval domi- 
nion, of repealing those provisions of the Aavigalion Laws wbich 
we have hitherto considered ? 

A few observations oijy will be requisite in regard to tlie 
other proviiion>i, by which we secure to ourselves the exclusive 
possession of our Coasting and Poionial Trade. As far as re- 
lates to our CoastiAg Trade, the rFgulaliuns are wholly super- 
fluout. ' No nation, after having at all eugnged in commerrinl, 
affairs, has ever been supplanted in its own coai^ting trade : the- 
Dutch, at the period when tliis Decree of ICxclusion passrd. 
scaltely carried on any part of ours t and indeed not even the 
most timid entertainony apprehension of our coasting trade bciujH 
snatched out of our hands. 

As to our Colonial Trade the argument is imlcli more intricate, 
though by no means less conclusive. The spirited renionstrancci 
of the Jamaica planters against this part of tlie Navig^ion Lam, 
the distresses of all onr West Indian Colonies, wbich can uriy 
be alleviated by their repeal, must call (lie attention of tlie 
Legislature and the Nation to (his suhjert, soon after Parliaoirnt 
assembles ; and we shall, therefore, take an early op|>onunity 
of giving our readers as full and satisfactory an explanation of 
it, as much observation and reflection en.ihle us to do.

if (be vindeot attacks ^mde on individaals. because they were

twsasethey trere so, we shall only select the most recent — an 

tnective against Lord Strangfurd, which appeared in T/ie 

KtnuKg Ckronicle of Tuesday last, the 5th of January. Of 

Isid Straogford, w<> know nothing beyond what is known to 

'the worM; nor do we desire to know aay thing of him, 

«<las the pablle services which he may hereafter render his 

tMOry. It is not as an individual that Lord Strangford rails 

Mk9m strictures in his defence, and far less as the member of 

*;|MliticaI party : it is as the representative oCall those whose 

"piiuioB aaay be injuriously traduced to serve the views of a 

Adhu, that we ave dvsimas to rescue htm from (he fjngs of 

bternwd karpies.' It is a crUrl private injury to f;ive unde- 

wnrd stabs to the reputation of a man ju»t romnioncing his 

ciKer: it is a cni«l public i^oiy, causelessly to destroy (be 

Ksfcciabilily of a asaa to whom a portion of the oattoiial In- 

«ns«s is intnifted. Sueh are the ronsi^mdoAs which call 

ftilh oar pr<.-feot remark?. 

AsHranas it na^ kauwo that the Court of Portugal had ac- 
is^y coiigrated to the Brazils, The itonting Chronicle began 
I* prcpu* (he puitlic mind by aaaoimcisg the extivme import- 
•ace «f appoioting an Ambassador ut° commanding tnlcnts and 
«<j»itj to the new empire ; and thus, ns soon as (he expected 
tiaiaatiuoof Lord Stroaigforil na; made public, the mtrditated 
Uow was ready to begiventaMiiiision,throBght]Mcharaelerof 
>Us voaog Bcgociator. That his repntatioa was to be sacrificed, 
■etsly for the take of barting the Administration, will pretty 
clorly appear, frpm the proofs adduced of his incapacity.' 

First, we are informed, by T/ie Morning Chronicle, that his 
Lndkhip possesses no qualifications, «f any sort, which could 
poialUmaotas a negoriator; that the world fcne«' lartMng ' 
•* fc"", e««ep( bis ha\tng published a few amatory' p()en:1i 
Mtraartiliom, from Camoens, Wc must own if to be a" me- 
•"Aflly (ruth, that liiile attcniiou is ever paid to the original 

Mtlificatioas of gar diplumalisls ; tlxir sppoiuUnent is matter 



of mere favour; and Ministers have the phiUMbropy to look 
upon them as very able men, (ill they have proved themselvea 
otherwise. In this state of things, Lord Strangford's nombxyr 
tion to a diplomatic station, must be (»Misid«rcd as rath«r« faiw 
tunate selection. His poetical effusions prove that be is-po»4 
semed of some genius and some taste) his translations front 
Camoens shew that he was well acquainted with tbo PtirtugUMtt , 
language,aiidsolioitousabout the literature, and, coosequeatlyy 
the mamiers of that country. How many of our Secretaries of 
Legation cotdd be named with equal qualifications ? How many, 
even of our Ambassadors know and care nothing more about tbn 
language of the country to which they areseix, than the beani 
of Siberia? 

The aext olijectioa is, that although Ijofd Slrangford may 
do very well for some subordinate place, fur a Secretary of Lc« 
gation, yet he is every way unfit for the high station of Am- 
bMMdoc.; that he has neither rank to impress the Por(ugne«A 
with asease of bis dignity, nor experience to make up for this 
lamentable deficiency; that he is only a poor Irish \Mpit whts 
must have recourse to bis industry, and has hitherto beea oiik>. 
ployed in a subordinate oiSce. 

It is curious to observe the ctovfo foot of this tool of the greatr 
aristaciacy, which sumetinies p r ets o ds to be the friend of tb« 
people^ the asaertor of equal rights.- Because Lord Strangford it 
not bom a Marquis or a Duka, we are told that he is not at all a 
fit person to negociate with theHurtagueseOrandee?., the !>ouras»' 
and Araojos, aiM Almeldas, and twenty other odd names, of 
which no one ever heard before : men who would have beea 
glad to retain their places %t the price of licking the dust off a 
French Viceroy's foot ; and whose counsels protracted the slay 
of their PHnoe, till he could scarcely evade the chains of bit 
opp ra sstr. It Is amusing, in the oiueleenth ccD(ary, to hear it 
objected, to an Ambassador, (hat he was not bom^.to a great 
title t at a period' when the greatest generals, statesmeo, and 
negociators pf the age caascaKely tell the names of their great 
grandfatbefs i wlieo the ancient nobility of the Holy Empire are 
hardly ever meatioiu^d, and the ensigns of the upstart Legion of 
Honour are received by Sovereign Princes with profound revo* 
rence. We must own that we have no particular satisfoclion ia 
seeing important trusts placed in tho hands of untried men, 
merely because they happen to be born Earls or Dukes. 'We 
never beard that those servants were best who received the 
wages before they did the work ( every employer will tell you« 
that sueh a practice serves only to render them nqHigent, lacy, 
and insolend The nuhappy Emperor of Austria affords a sad 
instauce of a great Prince, mined by adjusting the appeint- 
iiMBts ot his servants, ncrording (o the rank of their birth. 
'The argument which The. Morning Chronicle here ui^es against 
liord Siraiisford's appointment, we should urge- in favour of it.* 
.Utbeogh a Lord, he is not possessed of suOrtent inftuence or

TO CORRESPONDENTS. 

A CorrespoadEent,' who eubscribet bhnself JUrra, is very 
angry at oar assertion. In our Review of Folttical Declaimer*, 
last Sunday, " that Cobbett'r arguments against the olillty of 
the learned languages impoeed only upon those who were as ig- 
norant as himself." la refutallaa «(. (M« leaiark, Hitr* 
statei,that he himtelf is a leaned aiaa t that he bad twme* 
frott' bis own refleeiiom the taraa conetdttoni with Cobbett, 
even bcfcre he had read Cobbett's ditc^uistlions, and that teveiat 
respectable Philoeopiiers were of the saole opinion. All this 
may be very true, but it is no refiitatioa'.af whatwe iuli«a<>«d* 
I far it appear* that naitfaer tbe Isorns^ JKere, atr these d uD sasid 
Philotepiiers, nor indeed any iateWcent pcnoa we have ever 
heard of,dferived their conviction on this fobjecttkvsa Mr. Cob- 
' belt's reasonings. 

We are much obliged to FiHlai aad P.W.K. tot teirh

selves- aad their friaid* anly in proportion as tha faulu they 
allude to are remedied. '' 

The complaint of a JTtgltcUd JrHtt will speedily meat with 
consolation on a scale that, we (rasi, will satisfy his *'P*^'*I 
tion*. We shall be obliged to him for the eommuaiealioa of 
any thing in bis Art, which has beaa nsglectad, and yet i> 
worfliy of the Pablic notice.

THE THEATRES. 



ttRBRT lAflB. 



Daring tbe return of Mr. Garrick and Mr. Kemble, Tmgedy 
«M pccidiarly coUivated at Dmry Lane t nd the aiiilieacFS, 
Iboajch tn Reosnl they preferred Comedy, were induced by the 
t f M t i ie M of the acton, to cooatenaace a cpecies of entertain- 
Beat whiefa they bad a vanity In admiriog, though, nith a few 
cice]ttion5, they did not uudcrstaad it. But the present Ma- 
aagen perceiving that the town, wideis led into aoother channel 
by MiaM cmaoiaading geaias, iodines Ktfacr to Coaiedy Una to 
lYagedy, and having ao Tragadlan af lofBcient powers to stand 
aleor, liite Ajax, and turn an overwhelming moltitnde, lave 
illowed the Comic Mose to ro-assume her reign. Comic vtors 
at always to be found : both because Comedy is of all dramatic 
«ai tke most oocoangad, aad bfcaase it does aot lequire in its 
nqpeseatatsvea tb« sane fiaad qaallSeationt of oatara and 
edaeatioa. 

At the bead af tkis Theatre stands Mr. Ellis'ton, a gentloman 
who, thoagb be «cti in every thing, is most particularly emi- 
■cat is elcgaat comedy % and we have often regretted that he, 
'Who might approach so near to perfection in one sphere, will 
pcntst in weakeniag his efforts by dividing his pursuits. 'As 
lu> peweis are adapted latiier to charm in established Comedy, 
than to sapport the tottering pile of Tragedy, !ie would do 
wen tn ahawion the latter : for though, perhaps, the tbwn it ill 
ewfore a Tragedy at Drnry Lane, once in a mnath, an actor 
Iil(e Mr. £Ilistou ought never to play but when he can be ad- 



Thaagh this is our general opinion of Mr. Etliston's genius, 
yet 0Kfe »re two or three characters Of Tragedy which he plays 
THk gireat farce : and among them is the Barl of fVarwick, 
mkicb he represented on Wednesday aight. 

The Tragedy of The Earl 0/ fVarwfck was written by a 

fir. Franiilln, who wa* Chnplains to His Mi\iest} : and is one 

•f (base plays which are never very liliely to incor execration, 

betaaae they never take the chance of delighting. When a 

fact bvMly pots oa his Parnasseao wings, he may fail, like 

t>adrilns, by soaring too high ; but an author who creeps along 

Aepwnd bas at least the solid satbfaction of considering that 

he aoswt easily be lower. Dr. Franklin selected the safer 

csane -. he constructed his play with great regnlarity, and, with 

a auM laudable respect for custom, abstained from inlrodaeing 

aay cbaracters but these to which the stage had been long 

iaMtaated. A Monarch amiable but misled, a Nobleman the 

Mot of the people, a patriotic Peer, and a cringing Conrtior, 

Willi « couple of Ladies, One on angel and the other a devil, 

are tke Dramatis Penon^ of " TAt Emrl of Warwick." The 

D>j«tar, however, was evidently as faonesta pnins-taking poet as 

aay Court-Chaplain who ever wrote : and by his labotr he 

hm at leatt succeeded in obtaining some cold eulogies, as a mole 

wacks bis way through earth to day-light. From (his sample 

vf ikr worthy Doctor's gesuos, we cannot help conceiving that, 

in appointing bim to a Chaplaincy, his M^esty acted with 

•tore AcTtminatioa than patrons osually evince in the business 

•f proaratioo : for hii reverence has brought his clerical taste 

•■to the tbeatjc itself, and manifested bis zeal for the church 

%j prtaekiag en the stage. We have in vain endeavoured to 

doevrer a tingle poetical pawage, or a single situation of real 

t tbrongb the whole five acts of the play, ff^aneicky io- 

i, fs exhlMfed ia various tempers j hut whether he be 

I or vexed, angry or alKctionatc, he invariably fails to 

i«Bremotioa, An actor may create something from the 

r, aad.ta bar* givoi an opportunity for good actli^, is 

It, bat it'ia oidy the merit of a raw outline ; the actor 

i^rt ttika the pictbre. An author of real genias leaves nothing 

t> the actor but the .bosincss o^ varaishing, and the discretion of 

) ^fcwiiiUsikiiy tofidiet. Tbc Doctor has ouce or tnice 



endeavoured to speak bold-coastitationallanguage ; but just a* 
we expect a plain Tioditaaion of popular rights, «e liodtbc 
King and People makiag up matters ina good-humoured way^ 
and submission, as usual, walUng quietly, arm in arm, with ln> 
justice. 

We are happy to speak with unequivocal praise of Mr,.BI- 
liston's fVantick. His magnificent voioegave apowerful encr* 
gy to the vigorous scenes : and where alfectlon for Kliiairtk 
was to be expressed, he evinced all that tenderness and feeling, 
which so particularly distinguish his representations of love. 
There is one passage which he delivered iu a manner so noMy 
accordant with the gcsiius of bis character, that we cannot deny 
ourselves the pleasure of pointing it out to our readers. W<»r. 
•J(A, havinigqaarrelled with Edioardthe Fourth, whom he justly 
considers, as a creature of his own elevation, is ordered into 
custody by the enraged King. The guards are about to take bit 
sword, when fVaraick exclaims : 

" Slaves, stand off I 
" If I must yield my swurd, I'll give it him 
" Whom it so long has served ; there's not a part 
" In this old faithful steel, that is not stained 
" With Bai^ish Mood In grateful Edward's cause. 
'^ Give me my chains ! they are the bands of friendship^' 
" Of a.King's ^iendship! fur his sake, a while 
" ni wear them." 

An actor of vulgar conception would have contented hiinsrlf 
in this place, with presenting the SMorJ m mock humility to 
Sdmard. But Hr. Ellistoo, who knew that the very <fa»y or 
so high-spirited a being as Warwick, was epmlg coatempto- 
ous, did not affect a reverence for Edward, but having spoken, 
with undhgnised resentment, the line — 

<' With English binod in grateful Edward's cause," 

he stalked boldly to the King, and tlirew the weapon at the 
monarch's feet. The audience, though perhaps Ibey did net 
reason the question, felt the beaaty, and their instinct produced 
a loud applause. 

Mr. and Mrs. H. Siddons wereable representatives of Edward 
and £fizale(A ; but Mrs, Powell forgot tliat Margaret of Aajon 
should exhibit a deep and deadly revenge, rather than a loud 
and unvarying passion. The rage of Margaret, though it* 
casual flashes ace tremendous, yet burne, for the most part, like 
a subterraneous fire, and seems to be gathering strength for the 
groat explosions. All that should have been subtle was open : 
and ifthe author had not taken care to let JVarforet acquaint the 
spectators, with the villainy of her own character, probably, 
but few of last night's audience would have guessed her to <be 
evil-minded, till she had actually murdered Wnrmtk. 

The Pantomime has been contiimed through the week, though 
without any powerful attraction. 

OPBIUf 
This fashionable Theatre, which has lately given occasion to 
such vigorous disputes between Managers and Ballet-Master?, 
and such ungentle usage from a Lord Chancellor to n beautiful 
woman, . was at length, on Saturday, the 2d of January, oi;ened, 
for the season, with the Opera of Semirimide. The histories nf 
all the altercations to which we have alluded, are now a little 
out of date, and therefore we shall not molest our readers by iiH 
troducing them into ourcolnnms. Of the Operait is our intention 
to give regular and ample accounts : but we shall m.lkeitapria- 
ciplc In insert no observatioas, vamped in the hurry of a Satur* 
day night; lest tbe necessary speed of that agUatiag poritd 
should l>etmy us into some inadvertences, which we may too 
late discover, and which our readers may too ekriy regret. 
Madame Catalani was warmly received on licr tirst apprarsuce ; 
and seems. likely to produce to tbe Theatre maeti more tbau tite 
sun^ for whi«b the hat to firmly and to justly contended.

aarc advaatacc than in the corretpondeaee which was pld>- 
Itsbed in the French Papers. Instead uf ae]uM>wlad|(iag any 
oficnre, his Royal Highness is said to have vindicated himself in 
K very manly manner, and with considerable ingenuity. The 
examination of the Prince, which took place befoi« the Com- 
mission appointed te inqvire into the Conspirary, was very 
shert. Four qoastioBS were pat to him, which, withtheiraa- 
tweri, were to the following effect : 

Q Is it true that your Koyal Highness has cinspired dgaldst 
the life of yoor Royal Father and King ? 

A. I um a Christian; I fear God, and cannot bat shudder at 
the mention of an accusation so horrible. Such a thought never 
entered my mind. 

Q. What ate did yon mean to make of the ciphers of corre- 
kpondenre found in llie lining of ynur roat. 

A. The cyphers you speak of were found the first day I w«re 
thnt inn. Those who luade the coat can best dnswef your 
qne«tion. 

(^. For what purpose did yoar Royal HigbiMSS correspAid 
witli the Emperor Napoleon, and what was the object of Ihat 
correspondence. . . 

A. I have no hektlatlon In owning; that f have kept ^gt 
corTe>pondeiice with that august Sovereign, bat it conCnined 
nothing prrjadicial to the interests of my coantry, and iiotMng 
that could provoke the displeasure of my Royal Father the 
King. 

Q. Why did yonr Royal Hlffancn order,- and keep ready, 
loariMrseBt under -circBinstanccs which indicated aa inteotiou te 
escape} 

A. It ts true the horses were ordered to be kept in readiness, 
but iMa wn& not done wiHi the iitmrtien of flytofftrsm Spain 
but for the parpoM of joining the French aiviy : afler which I 
intended to make known to my Royal Father the imhappy situ- 
a^n to which the conniry is reduced, by the truly bad admi- 
•iftrationaiid despotic menmres of the Prince of Peace. 

SPORTING INTELLIGENCE. 

Fox-nrifTiKC in Kent. — The Lodge bounds are now 
in the hi;:he»t vigour, or to speak technically, well blood- 
ed. They riowd the sport of the Itist year in very good 
style, notwtthstandinj; the sky was - stormy and the day 
far advaacrd lirfane they foand the fox. In tlrawlog 
the last co\er, Uakcn Pole, the bound* struck open the 
drag at a qu&rier l>cfurc two, and in a fi>w moments the fox 
broke away, in view of the field, with the hounds close at 
him. His first point was op wind for Henncker Earth, across 
Brorkeden. fti4ipn«<d out there he instantly tamed down the 
wind for W'Uiow Wood, and skirting Dally, the boonds were 
to near him iae dared not try the earth. He then stretched 
across, with a side wind, in a line with Croote's Earth ; (rat 
the boitnds again gainin; upon him, he turned down the whole 
extent of King's down Wood, for 8h rubber's Karrh. Here he 
was again baulked, and rwi for the earth opposite Lineted 
Lodge I at this moment »ome of the horsemen rode into the 
hnnnds and brnafbt them to a check: Jerry, however, mafie 
a good and <|aick cost down wind, and immediately recovered 
the (Cent. The honnds now went away w i th a gaoi bead across 
JS'enherry, Petwood, and Kkudiling^tna, ioto Mr, Lake's 
Chesnut Plantation. Here we all looked very dismal, lest he 
thould go Io ground io the mbbit l)urranrs ; but, as if despising 
• safety tiwt he did not owe to bli own powers, he went gal- 
laMly across the open country to Barling's Wood. Fearing niat 
ho was running for TynlMun Great Karth, whieb was open, we 
sent the whipper-in forward, at speed, to prevent, ifjMwsible, 
this intention. He bad scarcely readied it when the fox came 
<(p, and, seeing the whipper-in, passed on to RotuPs Mount, 
artd thence into Tynhain Osiers. Afier fioing half over the bed 
he retunied, brake aerofs the marsh, and nm' the road towards 
CoMon Miil. There be was met by a lubonser an4 turned,

WESTMINSTER SESSIONS. 

TOUaSOAY, JAN. 7. 

PwLi.liio Noses. — Henry Sawyer took his trial on a charge 
of pulliaii and twisiiaf^tbenoeeof Thomas Alkins. From the 
evidence it appeared, that the prosecutor had made use of very 
indccnrons Iangua;;e to the defendant, which he reseated, and 
fold the prosecutor that if he repeated the same a^ia hcwould 
wring his nose; and that the prosecutor not regtsrding the wara- 
ing, the defendant did twice pull his nose. This happened at a- 
pnblieroom in Westminster, wliare several peitons were present. 

Many of them were called, who corroborated the foregoing 
eirenmstaoces, aud the Counsel for the defendant observing, that 
as the prosecutor was one of those men, whn,caraia[g into a pub- 
lic room with n mouth full of slaader, having neglected to soap 
his nose as a precaution against elfciided individuals, deserved 
all the pain tmd all the anguish which such a circumstance pro- 
duced, so say nothing of the disgrace attending it. 

No evidence being brought forward eu the part of tae de- 
fendant he was found Guilty. 

The Court, however, in mild consideration of the provoctti** 
altogether, sentenced him to pay a tine of Gs. tid. 

FBIBAY,- JAW. 3. 

William Soames, Henry Woodford, and William WhitJ', elliit ' 
Conkey Beau, were brought to the bar, and hoard by Connwl 
against their conviction, before the Magistrates at 8ow.«treet, 
under the Act, the 4«d of the King, chap. 78. commoaly calico 
the Vagrant Art. , . . 

Mr. Knapp, the Coansd for the Prisoaert, started a ^*"^^" ' 
objectinns.with respect to the legality of the conviction. Among 
other thills he argued, that the title of the Act of Pf^f^Z^ 
had been mis-recited, inasmuch as the actual title of the * 
ddiued the Jurisdiction of the Magistrates to the Jnslices •« t" 
Thanes Police Office, &r. wheraa* the roaviction, •**f*P "l! 
to recite the title of the Act, sUted the words to be w • 
Thames Police," *c. ^ .i_i »«. 

Mr. Gleed answered Mr. Raapp.— -Tha evidence affordea no 
thing new. , . .■,.• 

The Chairman observed, that he was dearty «f ''P'"'5^ „

((renter pcrtion of his tubordlnate klngdnmi, Bonaparte hut 
dfrided among his nwa brothers, and the nmr relativts of hit 
family, thus adding the lie* of Uaod to aU olbcx bond* of cpo- 
nectipu, )n the jappes that the House of Napoleon will not fori^t 
tlieir romtnon origin, orceasc to revercnrc the jotentioas of tbeir 
fif nadcr. 

. In. addition to these precautions he has adopted aaother, 
\fUicli shews a still deeper polilieni sagacity, and a mind capa- 
ble of ovrrluulctng inferior considerations in puniiit of its grand 
ullimaic ol>jecis> Several possessors of great empires have, at 
t6rir deaibb, apportioned their territnriesamoug their principal 
follow«rs, and left io legacies wliat they rnuld no longer retain 
tg themselves. The eomlutt of Uoiiaparte is very difTrreut. 
J}e has fonue(l a plan of fmpire io which his great usurpations 
apd conquest* are not to be Ciinfined to (he grasp of one over- 
KroWD monarch, bat to be divided among many for the security 
oi the whole. Instead of retaining all these piis«e>siaDS in his 
oW|i bands during his life, and parcelling them out only in his 
lyt will, as a man of impolitic ambition would have done, 
bt has h;.d the magpanimliy and wisdom to distribute them 
Airing his lifetime, and while he m&y still look forward to 
many day* of health uod vigAur. Kyen his favourite kingdom 
of Italy be. has lately disjoined from the central Govcrument of 
Franee, and formalist cousigscd it to bis step-son, Eugene 
Beaahiurliais. 

.Tbe'iacrea«ed ebanee of liability which bU new empire dc- 
rlyc* from titii mode at procecdiog, i« very great. It prevvuts 
•U eotttettn among bi« followers, with regard to their sli.:u-rs in 
tbe diitribation : it prevents the taceelsor to the metropolitiui 
gbntnneai. at Fruare from retaining the dependencies in his 
own baad», wbieb be might well do oDJer various pretexts, were 
tkcy to be given aivay only in CMSMjuence of the provisioM of 
» will: it enal>les tbe Mbordionte prince* to get acquainted with 
the fuDCtiunii of government, tite dispositions, nnd the interests 
«fthccoimtry eummittcd to tbeir rbarge, and by tbis means 
^oMotidates their power. It uecuslami them to perform with 
efactaess, nlltbefti^uUtioia attrndaijt ^n their comieciion with 
Fnwce, and thus consolidate* the wluale empire i in^burt, it 
obviate* tbie ehancc of any confusion on the death of Bouaparte, 
fiaee every titing will have alrrafly been established in the 
ender in which it is destined to conliUic, 

-la addition to thi* very poUth neatore, BompDrte has 
isdaplcd another, which, may .ultimately prove not less eOica- 
citHu : — the exteMioD of the Napoleon Code over bis w|iote 
empire. Thi* rede maj') in general, notwithstanding its de- 
fecif, be contidetcd a* a very grvav blestiag io tbe people .of 
miut of the coimtrtc*. which be has eonquerrtt, since they itill 
labour under the miterably uneqiiBl aud oppressive regulatioos 
of feudalism. ItJs needlM* to dwell on the vast cfii-ft* which 
tbe same laws, and the same admtnistralioa of juf lice have in 
biisdiaf csmmauitiei together. 

8«cb is tbe plan of the. Empire of the West, and such the 
means adopted by itsfoonder, to reader it perauwent. Itt^an- 
net be qaestiobod that tbe idea i* magnificesit, and that more- 
]>alitical sagacity is.dtsplayedia thcptBvisi'ms, ibna wecaodii* 
eover in the foandatioa of any other great empire. Yet, we 
■Wall thortiy stale circamstnnre* in its struetare, which aaem in- 
compatible with any great d^ree of pemunency. 

History presents us with many instances of a ckuter of mn»il 
republics confederating together, a«d rematnitig united t&r a 
great series of year*. The ancient confedemttons -of Greece 
tlie Aebeoji Leagne, the 8win Cantoiw, the Voiied State* uf 
Holland, the province* of North Americn, all atfbrd (trikiag 
prooA of the powibility of giving permaoeary to sacb asseeta- 
tina*. History alTords no lucb-example* of a cflnferfeniliaMof 
nrl>itrary prince* attaining any denree of stability. The Sa- 
traps iK fersia, tbongb merely oBcers, were la perpetiul rc- 
beliien against their sovereij^ t the laaBe majrbc sfidof the 
forctMrrs uf proviaiw ia Moditra, Turkey ; and (here i« not 



fei4iap* a single state of Germany that has not as often anied 
in nppositJoD to (he bend of the empire a* in hi* behalf. . 

The ceasoos of this diference between a coalition of frtc 
States and of arbitrary Princes, are very evident. .IntheSwiM 
Republic,, for <xample,' each of the Slater had tbe nuna^norf 
of its own iatcrsol regulations, its police andjadieatarefhalall 
■be public concerns, which might efli;rt the nhqie a»socialio«, 
such as the qaestiohs of war or peace, nnd themakitij; of Itut, 
%vere managed by delegates from every State. Thi* represealt- 
ii»u, called the States General, gave an appearance of on* Go- 
vernment to the whole association, and. tl(e jn^bitjmt* of tach 
Slate felt tltcir own participation in the Sovereignty; Butia* 
confederacy of absolute Princes, like that of Bonaparte's. »a- 
pire, no such common tie exists. As farai regard* his scritjects, 
each Prince is the only ostensible Sovereign; and he in bittim, 
receives, without aay consultation, the mandates of the freath 
Emperor. There is here no rL-pre»cnlatioa, ao deliberation o« 
common interests j the gloomy aEraogemeots of ailiitraify powtr 
are subslilutrd for an equal voice and a mutual concern, ^ar- 
reeding Emperors may have neither the mod«ratioo uor the po- 
licy of Boiupartr : and the dependent Allieji may Imagine it 
more for their safi-ty to unite with the ent'mies of France for 
their protection, than to commit tbemsetvet io tbe bands of their 
own gr^t Despot. . . 

There it another radical defect in tbe donslilntion which Bo- 
naparte has prepared for his Empire. Bred in a camp, and ac- 
customed tothe depotic habits of a Commander, l>e has made no 
provision for the progress of society, and for those effects which 
the extension of political knowledge must speedily produce. No 
share is assigned to the people in legislation i they are entitled 
by the Napoleon code to no political rights whatever. Hut in 
tbe present age, it is not to be imagined that the people ehlier 
of Fmnee or her dependencies will long sttbmK t» Ibis de- 
gradation, after tile terror of « great conqueror'* name Is re- 
moved. The people now know that they mo»t have frenlon 
and political rights, if they resolve to have them : aivd the ei- 
ample which Great Oritaio cominunlly present* before their 
eye*, of acuunlry so vigorous, weallhj, ajiJ powerful, entirely 
ia consequence of the proud rights to which nil her iuhabiiHii>« 
are entitled, must rn.iiiiuttally terve to stimulate the feelings of 
human nature. Of tiiis last circuiiistauce Bonnparte seems 
aware ; and hedcv, iu a Into peeviih tirade in the Moniiatr, it 
was de.iared that the world would neyvr be at rp»t _till Great 
Britain bcrome (ike other monarchic^ — in other words, till »hc 
n'as ruled by a despot I lie .does, not |>erceive tht^t Ilic want of 
tliose popular rights which she enjoys is .the surest, cause of con- 
fusion and ruiu to tbe Empire hclalmurii tu ej>talilith.

Hott, having got its cue, bas cnniiuued to rail, in strict uniMi 
u'ith Alcxa'udrr, against tltegoud faitl\ of our ciiun(r> i till at 
last Ri^naparte iia> cliiined in nilli adiniral>)e rflrrt; aad w« 
s!i:ill now hear AInxaiidcr, Bonapartr, attd our deni-oflirial 
journal slienio^ who sh.-ill he most lurccssCul ia ruiniag oar 
national reputation for good faith and honour. 

It h h^Tll ibfit Britaiii, who has ever been the dupe of her 
Allies; who, after repeated eiipericnce of their perfidy, hat 
continued to waste her blond and treasure In support of ifae Con- 
tinental Powers < who. for this purpose, has impaired ber own 
prosperity, and loaded her people with intolerable burdens^ 
should now be thus reproached not only by the enemy, hut also by 
her own degenerate progeny. I.et it not be supposed, that w« 
luran to ndvorate the cause of the last adoiinistnttion : their 
apology was sueakiag and unmanly beyond all endurance. They 
only asserted that tbey had given no formal lusuranres of aid 
to our allies, and that consequently no hope of aid from iw 
could reasonably be formed. But such an excuse was only 
an aggravation of tbeir misconduct: if it was proper to 
render assistance to our Allies, their fault was doubled in not 
giving timely assurances that It would be furnished: if it wai 
improper to aid them, this silly and pusilUuiimous evasion wai 
utterly mean and degrading. The defence of oar national 
honour, against both our internal and external enemies, should* 
in our apiiiiao, have proceeded upon much loftier grounds : It 
should have staled, first, that we had no cqromon interest with 
the King of Prussia, and were in no respect called upon to assist 
him { secondly, that no diversion In fovour of our Allies by 
land could have bad.any |)robability of success ; thirdly, that . 
Britain was mi^iug greater and more efiiracious eSbrts against 
France than all her Allies together. If these positions be .true, 
which we shall endeavour to shew in afitw words, whit are we 
to think oftl^Ase PolHlcal DM^almets, who unite w^h oar ene> 
niies in reviling our conduct ou this OL-caiioo, with the mo«t/oul 
and false aspersions } 

'VnsM-were'oisreastKRNkiMnait*. with IbeConilar Prmrtfe? 
After one gasconading but ineffSsclaal campaign against France, 
for which he was well reimbursed by British treasure, the King 
of Prussia contrived first to trick as out of some 'Airther sub- 
sidies, and then perfidiously made peace with the enemy. H« 
afterwards saw tha mhetabte min of tin British and Austrian 
armies, without making the least effort to . id Ibem ; and 
shewed himself abundantly rejoiced at the triumphs of France, 
since he was allowed, in the mean time, lo seiie tratcberoatly 
on some eftbedeieiiicetess-smaller sutes,. and add them to hit 
douiinionf. When the Nortbem CenfWIenicy onitad agalim 
Britiiiii in the hour of her distress, the King' of Prtissia did not" 
lail to bo among the conspirator! for ber humiliation. Yet 
this same'^hampion, after having Iwlrayed Austria intoa league 
by his promises of assisUoce, left her to be ruined at the iialtie 
of AoMerlitx, while hia Ambassador! were perfldibusty Mg»- 
tiating in the enemy's -cjimp I But this gallant Monarch was at 
longth roased to action : he boldly stood forth with bis own 
forces to oppose the Conqueror of the Continent. And what,

miifitaitt hta right to it by arms. And this is the Prince, aixl this 
the orcasien, in Hekalf of which Britain should have hastened 
to expend brr blond and treasuivs 1 Had the King of Prussia 
been successful, what would have been the result ) Hanover 
would have been finally imnezed to the Prussian dominioat ; 
and UiilMa, bikd she assiMcd him, would have coMrihi^tcd to 
ploader iMnelf in order to prosper bis treachery. Can any but 
a fool or a knave maintain that we oufhl, in ntcfa cireaak- 
stances, to have assisted Prussia? 

>Ve bare «!» uid that such asittauce would have been inei^ 



wu •rca'ianally eclipsed by the popular fulminatiflos of thi:>

frcloal. No on«, ire believe, has ever looked upoo the opporitiop 
of (he Pnissiao Ktiig to France at any Other than an art of the 
most otitrageoUs presumption and madness I and no one examined 
the details of the Campaign in whirb Bonaparte Has checked) or 
considered thi* tbal-acter of A-lexander, llift was codtibc^ that 
the weather and not the Rustsiant were the caOqtRYol^, andthat, 
oil any rovers* of fortune, the feeble AlezAndet n-ollld throw 
himself upon the mercy of the eiieniy. The landiof; of twenty 
or thirty thoasaad British troops, to co-operate with allies, ifbo 
kad no cordial feelings towards as, and tfi combat (he vastly bo- 
perior armaments of Bonaparte, could only have added to the 
tnisernble catalogue of disasters which our Cantinerital expedi- 
tions have brought Upon thk nation. 

But our highest And most ttoansnrerable reply to Atexander, 
Bonaparte, and Tie Homing Post Is, that Britain was making 
greater and more effitaclod* efforts against the common enemy, 
than all her allies together. Brltaib Was, at (he time alluded 
to, patting forth all her strength, besieging and harrafsing 
France with a naval armament of immense expence, carrying on 
board at least a hundred and 8fty thousand men t she had de- 
prived the enemy of his large foreign possessions! she bad ol- 
iBOSt entirely annihilated his coromCrre ) and had driven his 
navy from the seas | she had cut off from biro the most fertile 
■nurccs of revenue t and had thwarted Bonaparte la the most 
favourite otfjeets of his ambltton-^blps, rommerre, and colo- 
nies. What proportion do the efforts of Prussia or Russia bear 
to these amazing exerlioaS) ei^erin cxpencc, in magnitude, or 
in efficacy ? And Britain is reproached for not co-operating 
with her allies! What will The Morning Pott say (6 these

' redouble tbe zeal and energy of every Bnglisti citizeiii" — 

As the roetJtiiie of Parliament is so near, we have no 

■ doubt tbat sucn maiignaot insinuatious will be efTectually 

•ilenced, by tbe ac|ual production of tbeic docuroenb in 

the con^tilutiona) channel, It is ungenerous, and even 

, crimiital, to allege that our Ministers are so destitute of | 

common sense, as to have com^ifomiicd tbeic' own honour 

' and that of tb^ nation, by asserting, and acting ujxm tbe 

Miertiou, that th«y had proof pf a conspiracy against 

Britain, while no such proofs were really in existence. 

We trust that we shall soon be presented with tbe ineans 

of rptai>!tting tbeae insults upon the Utniteut, 

But the Manifesto goes on to assert, that our Minister* 

° not only had no proofs of any secret hostile engagements 

at .Tilsit, but that they did not themselves believe such 

' engngements existed. The following is thf tcxv cucious 

reasduiag employed »n this occasion t-^ 

" If, la fact, the Cablnrt of London did brKeve in lh«

Tliev seized Uani^h vessels, oa accoant uf arninnmenu which 
the E«|>eror of Russia had laadc at Tilsit s ibay permitted

it i« henee not true thai they itow hcliev* in the exiitrnee of

w*y to retrieve his bonoeri a^ perfectly limHar t« the 
conduct ot Britain himself, who makes treaties m ew ^ y for 
the occasion, and maintains tbefli only a* l«B^ aa soita her 
convenience! 

Whee our Ministen state the moderate manner in-whkh 
tt«y applied t^Ute Ihrrt^pm of Rtrssn, for th^commui 
Bkatiou of (be aacrct ^t^dea of the tn^tj of Tiiiiti the

nied any inch articles ei^isted wliicb at all concerned ns, 
and that we still seemed resolved not to beaatiafted trnks* 
he would actnally forge such articles for uj. To thi* 'ta 
may answer, that wf have a# yet no authority, but that of 
the ftoniicur, that the Expebob of RiuNta actually haa 
denied the existence of su<sh articles, 

.The nuAPer in which th» MoitUeur eva4es tbe unanswefi 
able itatemcnU qf our Ministers, that the canse of the 
Kiws Of PaOssiA Was not more that of BiHain than of 
Russia, is a singulaf display pf unblushing sophistry ^ Tire 
war in Which Austria was overthrown, and that ia which 
FrtNWa was eooqnered, ara confounded together : a d'isci«t 
sioa is then entered into with a view to prote oar ole*» 
conneetipq with Austria, and the very particular cJaiiis 
she bad on our atsiistance ; and hence it is concluded thit 
we were under much greater obligations than Russia t<i 
supiiortAMtria) l{o~4« auffiort t^cMMta | Bnt the meat 
smgnlar part of this "very whiroaicai piece of aifumeatatien 
is the copclution. The writer of the article, flnAhig that 
he had fairly involved bimsdf in a labyrinth of confnsioo, 
bfcuu to rail at the English Oovernmeot for the very -folly 
into which he baa himself fallen, "This confbmidiag of 
the most recent events," says he, " this ignorance of the 
occurrences of our own times, is worthy of the present 
Ministers of England lit" 

A long d'isserUtion follows, in which the JtfoMiteKr, after 
maintab'mg the charge that we deserted our alfies, very 
ingeniously details the operations for their support, which 
we ought to have undertaken. This siHy tirade, deservis 
neither repetition nor remark, In the second artltle of 
this paper, oar readei^ wiD find a diort rtatemcntof pnr 
santinents on this question. 

In iUMwer to the assertion of our Ministers, that oaly 
one Russian sbip has been oondemnod in our Courts, the 
MoniUwr recounts the oppression of Our cruisers id Mopf, 
ping and $emrckittg Russian vessels \ and aaserts, on what 
anthority It does not think 111 to tell, thattweKe more of 
tbe detained ships hUve been ctuidemned lince our declara* 
ttoii of war w'at published. 

The ^tement of our Ministers, that they had not in* 
mediately accepted the mediation of Russia, because she 
was «o httimately connected with our eaeeaiet, aud wouM 
not communicate the secret articles of the treaty of Tilsit, 
is lioticfed in the fbttowing singular passage, of which ever j

«iH be iaterealed to Jean the terms wbieJi Fnaee and

. " France, Austria, aad 9wnla require that tha Danish fleet 
AsaU be' restored « that 'rrparation should be made to the 
Kfimf Royal « that (be English people, fqllawinK the pxaoipl*

the last paragraph. It neietes to that declaration which 
tmr Ministeri made, io deibnce of RAmiI^ adherence t» 
tbe principles of the ar^ed neatrah'iy, that we Aoutdre* 
Rolutely mahitain our principles of maritime law, and never 
allow Mem to be brought into quMtion. It is as fdh

" It is because you do not wi>h fur peace that yon raise use-

as well a» the Emperor of Russia, Uiat they proiicUm anemthe

leai-the right to declare the principles which are to be the rale 
of their policy ; they have tbe ri^ht to say on what conditions 
it becooies them to lie yoqr enemies, or neutral. Fou, t/ott 
procIMm smcsD the prhurlphs afj/our Uaritime Lttos. Well then ! 
Ibis appositian of priaclples will not be an Impediment to (be 
re-ettablitbment of I'eacc. They have oa aeitber side ai^ 
ettect duri^i pence 1 they have no application except when yoa 
are at war with a Maritime Power { but in that case, each Gon 
venuneot has'ihe right and power to consider the first violation- 
of its flag la an act of hostility. Tlio cirmantaaces in wbic:i 
yau will then find yourselves will deteruuBe your coadact then. 
If it is with France that you aieat war, you will oot Judge her a 
power suiliciently feeble to render it indiflereot to you whether 
yoa draw oflier enemies upon you, and you will shew some 
cuasideratii>n for the rest of Kurope, You dirt not venture to 
insult the (h(gs «f every power, till you had tbe address to arm 
all the Continent against France. It was then your maritime 
principles were chuiged ; and they became mure ui^iiat and 
more violent, in proportion as your Oonlioental coiincetioiis 
became more contracted, or your allies maintained with more 
difficulty the struggle in wliirh you had engaged them. It was 
thus that when Russia was obligvd Io collect all her force 
•igainst tbe French in Poland, you violated her flag, and refused 
her. In respect to her Commercial Treaty, conceisivas which 
you shewed yourselves disposed to {;raiit when i.he had no lunger 
any enemies to combat. Tbe Powers of the Crmtinent, in 
proclaimiag anew tbe principles 9 f the armed nentrafilj/, do but 
uunounce the maxims upon which they purpiisc to act io the 
next maritime war. Yoi rainot prevent their diivcliog their 
policy as they undeistand it; they exercise in this the right 
which appertains to all (ioveminenis, aud'to the usurpation 
of which they would have nothing to oppose but the 
tiltiiua ratio reguiii. On your part, you proclaim tha 
linnciple$ 0/ your maritime latu, that is, tbe maxims 
which you will employ io your next war. The Co»» 
liuont has no iotereat in demanding frnm you either dt- 
durations or renunciulions. OeclariiLi>)0> would have aa 
eltei t, from tbe moment yen might tliink >ou could fiirgettbem 
with impnnlty. Rcnuncntions are without an object, since we 
eaortOt renoance what we do not possess. If we judge of what 
yuu will do, by what yssbavebitherto d»ne,weiuaycoarlBile, 
ibM you will not require from the Powers of the Continent 
eKbcT drrlaratioo or rHranelation « and as they will demand 
ouae from you, there is heaee no anestinn to discuss, no diiflcuity 
to Ksolve t there is nothing which can retard tor a day tlte blc8> 
sings of peace. If, however, you should mise the sirange and no- 
vel pieteaSion of imposing opou France, and the other Powers of' 
tbe Continent, by an art of your will alone, tli« obligation nfsnh. 
scribiog te yoar muritiine laws, this Is as if you were to require 
that the Laglslatare and Sovereignty of Russia, Kraaee, and Spain 
should be traasparted to Usoden— a fine prerogative for yotir 
ParliaaMoc. It wonM be the same as if you were to procltstin 
everlasting war, or as if yon-were to 8x as the terailnatlou of 
war tbe aioaieM when yoa sbnald bate wticed on St. Peters- 
bargb, Paris, Viema, aad Madrid. But if tUs be not at the 
Imttom of ynor seotimeat, there is no fhrtlier obstacle to peace : 
far, according to your own expressions, negnctatitiu vert bro- 
ken a_f on pointt which touehtd immedialel;/ not theinlarutt «/ 
hit Britannic MaJeUgy tnt thooo of his ImpertalJlln \ for the 
Imperial Ally of bh Britannic Hajasty b-if infornied you, that 
peace is henceforth tbe principal cad of his with, the principal 
otfjcct of his interest." 

Our leaders will perceive, with pleasure, that this artide 
contains far more pacific indications on the part of France 
than have hitherto been uttered. She ingeniously finds 
otit a mode of getting over the chief difliculty which stood 
in the way of pacification ; and when this is once removed, 
certainly very little seoini to stand in the way of opening 
o^ociations, if out Governmcut is inclined.'

received bi* pastportt ; but nothuig it known of the time 
•f bis departore. If Ministers are engaged in negocia- 
tions, they are kept a profound secret t but some papers, 
if -we beliere themselves, are quite in the confidence of 
the Cabinet, and pompously announce to the public, that 
they are to discuss tbe question of ptaee or wart 

Some Interesting accounts have been received of insur- 
rectioas in Lisbon against tbe French. As they have come 
through different cbanueis they seem entitled to some 
credit, and we have, therefore, inserted them t but we 
must observe, that the information comes through Ame- 
rican captains, and we shall, therefore, defer our obsarva- 
tions on them till they are better authenticated.

(Extracted from a Duilm Papor,) 

The following highlv intemtio); infrHliteDcr has hem .fast 
cornninnifated at nur OfBee, by tbf> Csiptani of an Americiui 
TcssrI, wblrrli arrWrd in oor taiirbonr this day, from Cadix, 
« hirh pUre he left on the 81st altt— 

" It apponrs, that previous to his sailio;, letters from 
Lisbon, dated on the l?(h and ITth of December, had 'been re- 
rcivcd, whii-h etntedtbat on the 12th, atnitbt (the French hav- 
inK prrv<oo»1 v takea pnstenion of all the forts, aod the remain- 
ing >hipt of war, on whirh tbey hoisted French colours), the 
uoptilarc, in imnieasr numbers, romoirnred an attack upon the 
Fr nt-h and Spanish troops ; that a general enfcaceineot took 
pUce in the streets, and that great numbers were kill<-d on both 
tides before the populace were reduced to submission. The 
fnllntving morning nrneral Junol isned a menacing proclama- 
tion, tlireateniog the ringleaders, whirh he said were well 
known, with the most dreadful pnn'isbmant. The immediate 
exrculion of the prisoners taken by the French, folliiwtd this 
prorl;im<ilion : tome were shot, and many were hanged. These 
dx'adful examples, however, wore not of snfTirieut force to 
prevent a second iinurrectioo, i^hich took plare three days 
after, on (he 15th, more drendAil and t«nj(oinary in its efl^ls 
than the former, in which, oar reports state, between "five 
and liT thousand French and Spaniards were killed," and that 
^he most dreadful disorder prevailed In the Capital when tbe 
last arrniiots were sent off. The greater part of the troop> 
stationed there are Spanish. To the horrors of insurrection are 
^d.^e I the miseries of want ; asif scarcity of the most dreadfuk 
and alTectini; Icind prevailed generally in and about Lisbon."

*' I have the pleasure to arqualnt yon. that the Isabella 
arrived here safely la^i aight (Sunday), after a i>:<s*age of ten 
days^ She left Cadiz on (be SIst nllimo. Before the came 
•way, the Captain saw letters from Lisbon, of. the ITth of De- 
cember, which stated, that an imurrection bad taken place 
there on th« 18th, ^t oi^ht. Tbe pspnlai-e surprized the guards, 
and a verv lovere conflict ensued, and many on both sides were 
kilted. On the I3(h, manv of the leaders (\f the populace were 
iMiot, which to hieroted Ibtt iahabitaals, that they arose again 
on the night on the 15th, vtiea the slauf hter was drtndful : 
above 5,000 person;! «n bo<k««4M were killedf The arrouiits 
add, tlial the iahabilmti are dreadfully ill ofl° for provitiom. 
Tbe greater part of the wealthy totally fonoolc the city. The 
French colours were hoisted oa board the forts and thips of 
war. When the ncconntt left Lisbon, peace had not been en- 
tiiely restored} but it was iliougbt famine would rid the coun- 
try of the French aod Hpauitbtoldiers. Captain lligginstbrew 
etsierbaard all hit p*pen, being chared by three privateers." 

A Meectiag of the Committee of the American Mer- 
cbuts took j^ace on Thiirsdar, pursuant to adjonmmont, 
out the maiu business for which they were assembled — 
nuncly, that of presenting a Memorial to Ministers, re- 
lative to the late Orders 'of Council, was not gone into. 
The consideration of it was fartiier postponed till Thurs- 
day next. The Chairman, however, was delegated to wait 
upon Ministers, relative to the applicatioQ of the mer- 
chants and manufacturers of Lancashire and Yprkshirc, 
far licences U> protpc| such cargoes as tbej werp about lb 



embark for Aiperica. — Mr. Saasom accordingly proceeded 
to the Treasury, where he had na interview with the Cha^ 
ccllor of tbe Exchequer aiid Lord Bathurst, whose answer 
to his application was, we' understand, to the following 
purport, '■ that he saw no necessity fat such licences, as 
ire are not at war telth Jmertca i" but that, however, 
they had no objection to grant them, in order to satis^ 
thepcrsons who applied. 

The Recorder made his Report, oil Wednesday, to bts

in Newgate :—

tesi,tonched by his misforttuei, provided him With apparel, 
and concerted meani fur his escape ; but her scheme was fuiifd 
by the vigilance of the guard, under the ceminaiid of Sfarre and 
Baiiuer, We forbear to explain the manner ia which these mea- 
sures were frustrated, because we are onwilling to anticipate 
tbe pleasure which our rraders will fed from the repretcotation 
itself. Again, i'riiies SigUtuuHd, astUted by tbe C«un<<«, by 
''iiiaiina, aad by Hamsaji, attempted to escape on board the 
Danish Heel, isbich was hovering on the coast t luid agaiu.bo 
was prevented from nccomplisbing his purpose, by the inter- 
veatioo of Coiini yafdtnttrin. A very interesting scene then en- 
^ucd, in which Valdtnetein himself, though fimily attached to 
(be crowB, wiu induced to coimive at tbe Prince's esrape : 
Hparre and the guards were fuiti-d in tbeiz turn t and a letter 
written with pencil, arrived to inform tbe Cpantsas that Stgit' 
imind had safely joined the Danish fleet. J*rmc« Otittams, tbetoa 
of (be reigning monitrcli, then appeared t in consideration of tba 
interesting cirrumstaiicra of the case, he pardoned the Vatdea' 
steins for aiding the unfortunate euemy of the king, and the 
piece concluded with the union of Comit Sparr* and Christina. 

From this outline our readers will perceive, that tbe Wan- 
derer, like the modern raeladramas, is, la its ftiMe, fognded 
on heroic siluittino ; but in no other respect does it bear the least 
affinity tp tlicse fashionable afterpieces, lor tbe Wanderer pot- 
lesses character ns well as iucideiit, and w bile it interests by 
the strength of its titualioos, it charms l>y the elegance uf its 
li.-ilogue. We ngtireJ, indeed, wime passages of popular pa« 
triotism, which, though not violently introduced, arc still un- 
worthy to osfurt wilb tbe chaste simplicity uf the language in 
general. But in every one pf the great requisites for dramatic 
composition, Mr. C. Keinlilr has most huaoarably succeeded ; 
and we have declared our objectiun to the two or three strag- 
gling clap-strapi which are fiiuod in the first act, not for (lie 
sake of picking put a petty fault, but beraqse where a pieee 
approaches so nearly to perfection, we cannot but be vexed to 
see Its claims ohstructeil by so slight iso impediment, It cop- 
tianes to attract crowded audiences. ■ 

■ The author is biuuelf the mpresenlative of Sigismvnd. Ittt 
a character of various passion ; and both in its deeper and in its 
lighter tints, it is aduunilily coloured by tbe actiiig nf Mr, C 
Krmble. We sboulil give equal praise to Air. Fancelt's perform- 
once of tbe (rifling clwracter of Itanua/i, if he would but talk-iit 
a Scotch dialect ; but, perhaps, be considers that as 0006 uf the 
party would iu reality be spcakin;; Knglii>b, it is not necessary 
for Aamsay to mark bis country by hi j accent. Mr. Pope in 
yaldtttfteiu, is loud, but not iutcrestiDgi and Miss Smith, as the 
Cviiii<<«s, is too cold and deilaniatury. She has (be habit of 
giving a great appearance of sentimental importnuce to passape* 
which ought to be siuiiily spoken. The otlier performers do 
Utile which demands eiiber praise or censure. There ore cbp- 
nisse«, and noexcellrnt overture to tbe play ; these are the work 
uf Mr. Kusscll and Mr. Davy. The Prologueis spoken by Mx. 
Uruotoo, and the Epilogue by Miss Norton, 

Kixe's TKK.trnn. 
The Comic opera of I.a Fraeealana, was revived on Satur- 
day the 9th, for the purpose of di.-playiog the admirable powers

pinjed to ens^y the tubs in which the slaves dojinsited tbeii 
nlth. On one occasion, when he bad upset one of these tiibi 
upon the deck, the Caplaio beat him with a handspiiie, and 
bruised and larcrated bis body in a must piliahte «Tay ; the 
blood flowed from hi« head andcoverrd his suouldcrs. He like- 
wise had his bead half shavrd and painted, his body marked uiih 
'olourc, and <iuiprndrd by his wrists, tird at the extreme end uf 
a lifiiomstirk. In this way he left tlie slaves upon drrk lo 
laui(ii at him. His daily allowance was a poooa of yam or 
hrcad, and (liree half piolf of water, an^, of Course, his body 
l>et-aio« emariatrd, and hit flesh and sirenKtli dwindled awa>.

ill- continued in thai situation till he explrrd about three or 
four da>s after. The Captain wa* told of his death, nod rt-

— his belly was shrunk in — bi< whole frame Emaciated, and liii 
body covered with bruisesi" 

The Prisoner, w hen railed on" for bis defence, gave in a 
written paprr, stating, that he had the nii>fortua« to have a 
turbulent aod mutiuouscrcn, and that be W3< roiupeltrd lo have 
recourse to severities in ordwr to maintain his command. Smith, 
the gunner, after disobeying his ordrrr, said, be bad the key sf 
the maf^azine, atid wnut'd blow up the ship; aod on another 
orrai«inn eleven out of twenty-five of his crew went onshore, 
fn short, that the whole was a coiiKpiracy to takeaway hit 
life, aod the chnrge hail been made up by the Doctor out ofse- 
venge, be (the Prisoner) having punished biiu for his mil- 
conduct. 

Mr. Justice Le 'S\mt wmmed up the evidence, ant aftr^ 
commeiitiiigal great length, said it was a question pnrrlv wiih 
respect to lliu credibility of witnesses. If they heiievrd the 
facts deposed on the part of the prosecution, they ccrlaiiily 
amounted tn murder ( but if they thought the fUcts bad hrrn 
overcharged, and the case bad be«^n made out from motives of 
|>ique, rather than of public justice, then they would take the 
improbability of the case into consideration,' andsay whether, 
under all the circamstaoces, the Prisoner was aot'intitiod to 
theif acquittal. 

TheJury withdrew at five minutes after nine at night, and 
did not return with their Verdict until ten minutc« after three 
iu the moraine, 'When they urbDouoced the UefWidanI— Aof

vent an accident. The horse went quiet fora.sbon distance and 
began to pliinge, and on his rider ctappiiig spars tu uim h* 
reared, and fell over on. his back. Mr. H. was taken from

brthe enmityof this worrt of governments, (rrfafbrrthN worst of 
• anarch iej, is of »o little importance, as scarcely to de^erTC men- 
tina among anr other truly great and interesting confcrti!. 

The Speech extols the fidelity and m.igminimity of the King 
of S» eden ; it hints that it is a eacrCd duly to renirr acsi^lance 
to that Monarch ; and expre«sesa hope Ihit Parliament will 
enable his M.'uesty to discharso .iiiv oblig.-ili.ins conlr.irdd for 
this purpoje. The conduct ofthe Kin;; of Sneden tnnard» tlii» 
country ha.occrlainlv been nieriiuriuu> ; but nednubt his ability 
in resist the powerful cimibination of the ^uri'oundir.g powers : 
and we are apprehensive that Our subsiilie» to liini will prove a< 
fruitless as they have done iu every other country of the (!:onti- 
nent of Europe. , . 

AVith regard to .^.oierica, H is slated that an attempt has been 
qiode by that Govcmment to connect with the alTnir ofthe Clie- 
sapenke, pretensions inconsistent with tHe matStime rights nf 
Britain : such pretensions, it is added, his Majesty is determiocd 
never to admit. We cannot but give our hearty as^eirt to this 
4etermiaation of his Majesty, in tlic sense rn nfhi'U we uuder- 
t'landit: It is <urely absurd in The Americans to imagine that 
•w-e should gratify them b/ renouncing oor right of searching 
either for deserteni, or for contraband gooil-.,.'t>u bo.ird thcfr mer- 
chant vessels. The rights Which we here claim,, arc accor^-d 
equally to e»ery state hiy the law of nations.

talialion, indispensably necessary Io counlcraet ll|c previou;

tipux to tbcce measures by iti sanclioa. Vif never doubled of 
the jislictv of these Ocders, ns they were plainly an .-irl of reta- 
liation ; but we must otvn that We entertain great doubts of their 
expediency. The>comin«r(c of iieutralr. was the only means re-

I.OHD Acvro^rseroadrd the Address. ' 

Thc Vvkt. of HonroLK said, there was one point, wirti 
ref^ard to which he was nnder the necessity of disturbing the 
nnanimitv of their Lordships' vote on Ibc occnslou i namely, 
that part of the Speech which related to the attack upon Co- 
p^ln^en. No' imnrmation whatever bad yet l>ecn laid beftira 
Parliament lu justify that measure. Ministers staled the r*. 
lurtance eviiired by &is Majesty with regard toil: he wished 
they could shew that they entertained a similar feeling. Parlia- 
ment wao tolA, In the King's Speocb, (hat the eyes of all Europe 
were now upon them. II was for that reason, he wished Par- 
liament to postpone its decision npon the conduct of Ministry, 
as to Denmark, until the fullei>( information was presentc<4 
them to shew that she bad entered into hostile eiigsgcmentt 
against n^. He should, therefore, move, asan Aniendroent, to 
ten vp out the whole of the pnragrupU in the Address rotative to 
the attack upon Copenhngru. 

l,:tUB S»Dwnrrir expressed the e»tteme ragret with wMeh 
he found himseff compelled to concur in Ibe Amendmeni. He 
had come down with an anxlndt hope that DOthioi; wouhl be in- 
serted in hit Majesty's Speech which should crriile a dillercnce 
of opinon. He was s'>rry that he had been disappuinicri. He 
long clung to the opinion, aud he would not now abandon it, 
Ibat Ministers would furnish Parliament and tlie countin, with 
cogent reasons, founded nn Justice and sound polilie.ll rx 
prdiency, for their conduct towards Denmark,' nut till they 
did so, nn man could be required to give up the honest feel- 
ing of hi< heart ■nnd under'taoding, and his attacbnieni to the 
ancient policy of the British Nation. Admittinjj, with the 
Noble Mover of the Address, that the arscuals of Denmark 
abounded with naval stores,' It w.is dear to hi- miud, that they 
f-ould not have been iiilended agtiinst this Country, bet-au-e at 
thie tima they were colleciing, Russia, who was supposed to have 
the greatest 'inQuen'ce over hfr councils, w-inat war with France. 
To the alledged secirt articles at TiUit, Denmark could not 
Have been a party at llie lime the attack npon her was medl- 
U«ed, ft.r the Treaty of TiliU was dpied iiB the 8t)i of .lulv, and

much niisiiifnriaed if thc Crown Prince of Denmark did not

s( roved bv their olferinp to defend that island, and togui«r,-inte«

TUOHSDAV, JAX. 21, 

After his Majesty's Speech was read, Loftty ft'.otti.TOW rose 
4o move the Address. It was his maiden speech t and if it con- 
tained notbio.3 new, it way, at leai^t, appropriate to the occa- 
sion. He spoke highly of the warlike triumphs of Ihcnatioo, 
and he anticipatcil more. 11 had been, and it must be, said be, 
that mtr muit be the 04:ly channel and tuurce of our nalioiml 
k-enrity. Such sias the uiict-itaiiity of any peace lasting, that 
in bis mind it is more than probable the eipence of a pmet 
establishment would tie great, and alwaysalteiided by the haaard 
of bein^ sud:Ienly and uiirtpeeleJly violated. The Nohlo I«rd

11 './My eoiiiplimented for hiiiih.Tnding the resources of the eoun- 
iry in the iii.-tiincr liiey had d<HH>, They had done their daly, 
and were doing it daily, and they highly merited the counte- 
iiaiiee and support b«ih of Ibat iiouse aud the country at laege. 

Mm. ^i.i.iss.-coiided the nMiiion. 

J.nno iliLTos vindicated his conduct with respect lo the dif-

Hu. Gcour-t f'o.yso.vsi- oliserved, that the Speech now rrad 
fr«m the Chair was the longest he bad ever Iteard of. itnd em- 
braced a grcatur viiriety uf topics titan ooy other. It ax'peajred, 



by tlie Address, that Ministers jrequired the onqualiSed appro- 
bation of Parliament, for the ofiairof Copcobuguu, aad dit^rcd 
materially in opinion with the Noble Mover and iieruadrr, fpr . 
he eould lu-ver reconcile jlimself with the idea thai the Ruler of 
I'raiire had the intention ofscijiing on the Danish navy, lie »« 
bound lo say that Ministers could not produce the Iciift (jruuud 
for the supposition. Ministers had, therefore, onl> aiiiicipairil 
what they imagined he might do. With respect to Aiueiica lie 
had notlii'ng to say, n'> the |iapers were not laid upon tlie tahli-, 
«h^t question inu<t rest for the present ; but the >iaie of Irfl.iiiil, 
on which the Speech was.«Uent, required an immediate roi^idiT- 
ation. — ■He pledjed himfetf to bring forward, as soon as possi- 
ble, the affairs of Copeuhigen, Which lie considered iavolvtd 
with its di.<graec the charac icr of the Jtritish nation. 

itn. Mii.\T:t at great leojjtb vindieated the condurt of hit 
Majevty's Minivers, and took a clear and coraprehen«ive view 
ofihesiinntion of tlie Powers of Europe, with their iuflurr.rc 
and connections with Fiance: but yet, war In the present in- 1 
stance was nhsitM/eln nircs'stiry for our existence as a nation.

Bemuse, it has oi^ly been through the slow and painful pro- 
gression ofuiany ages, that civ irfted nations have emerged Irom . 
a state of continual insecurity and violence, by the bstablishuirut ' 
of an universal public law, whose mn^iIus and precedents have [

-The cnmlutt, beside;, of Ministers, in the whole transaction, 

it In manifest opposition to this principle nf the altnck Tl<ey 

DHide no such cnnrge upon Denmark when before Cnpcuha.^cii, 
sor ev;o pretended to hare invaded her with the cnuie nf wax. 
Tut Ir language upon the spot, and even in the Address proposed 
tn Ml M^esty, Is the language of regret, a language tUterly 
Inconsistent with the Tindication of a proe««diiq(, which would 
bave'been as mild and forbearing against ao^nemy, as it was 
t>Mbaroat and treacherous against a friend. The position alto 
«f Oeumrk, whea the assault was made upun ber, is the 
ttrangett evidence to resitt the presumption of nn understaodiug 
WtH France. Her army was in Holstcin, which Fnuice was 
vMiMteg, whilit ZMla'nd was left dcfenceTess, and the ships 
di>manlled, at a moment when the consciausness of a treaty or 
t^iMtney mmt far>re sDgge«ird to all the conlractiiig or con- 
fedtntlng par ief« the necessity nf concrntnittng the whole 
force of DenmariC, to di-fi n I b^ r capitot, ai d so secure her deet. 

BeCMOte, tio evidence wliatever has been laid before the 
Hnnte, to establish any hotlilc confederacy between JJeoncirk 
•nd f ranee,- bur aaj design M the part of the former to depart, 
from ihe s'rictejt peatrality f on ^he contrary, the abovc-nien- 
fintwd tolemn deciaratlon of the Crown Pritice to the British 
Miniaier, ought to have been received by his Majesty's servants 
a< the pledge of • firm resnlation to loainlain neutrality; nnd 
bt^cMase iratbing short of a hostile design in the Ciurerniiient of 
Drniuark cnuld Jutdfy tbe demand of ber fieet, or tbc boiubard- 
aient of Ccyrabagea to eftforre the surrender ofit. 

KeeauK, It was cnmgjeielv in the power of Oneat Britain to 
btve proteeied the Danish tieet f^um nay l^ostilc atlarlc of 
France, wMcb dcktroys the pretence oT such an indispcnsible 
aeretslty w CoaM alone justify even tbe ilightest trespass upoa-l 
a pMoeaMe and nnotrending state. 

Becatfe, Still Kaomiag, in the abaenee of all evidence t<l the 
roBtnry, that Ihe C^vermaent of Denmark wa« faitliful tn 



Into the poiKMba mr power nf Fmnce, coald possibly justify 
its hotllle teiZtti« hj Great Britain. Such a principle wnuld 
be utterly tuhverttve of tbe first elementii uf Public Law, as 
bring dcttrtietive of the independence of weaker States, in as 
Biueb at it would create a jurisdiction in the stronger natiDm ' 
to snbftitute their own se<!urily and coAvealence for the general 
rule, and invest them also with the sole privilcgeofdetrrminiag 
t1i« accationt apon which tbey might consider Ibem to be ea- 
dangf red 1 and becaitK, to justify the attack' aad plunder of a 
■*t3k uobiTcndiog Power, upon tbe astvmptlon that a stronger

fo erect a new Public Law upon tbe foundatiaai of dtshonour

■ubstitutiog tiK doroiaioo of oppression for the sacred obli{a> 
.iuns of morality, buaanitv, «od justice. 

Bee lase. Supposing it to &8ve been not only probable, bnt evta 
certain, that France could have succeeded in carrying a«»j in 
t e winter (he ships and stores from Cupenhagrn,bot withoutfhe 
einsent6f Denmaik, faithful to her ueutralily, tbe Iniqaityof 
that act, in sound policy, independently of all considerations of 
iKlice, ought to have been left to the French (iovermncat to per- 
n •Irate; because Ibccarcwset of the ships would 'have been tbe only 
f oit of an act o,f the deepest atrocity, whilst the iudigaalioii nf 
a brave and geocronsitcople, now- too justly directed iigaimt 
trfeat Britam, would then hare been pointed against Fimcf) 
an I Denmark, with the pmteriion «f our fleets, might have kept 
open tbe B:dtic to our commerce, and e»toided our maritliao 
me-tnt of restoring the'tranqntllity of the world. 

Because, Until nh attack upon Copenhagen^ shall teteive 
vindication by proof of its justice, or condemnation, in thesh- 
lence of il, from the Parliament of Orcat Britain, she has M 
|ier moral station in the world, since the very system of wrong 
^nd violence, which ^he hat so long confederated Enrope to a*- 
ftrpv, »t the eupcnre of her blood and retonrco, will Iwu* httfl 
fttablis^ed and confirmed by her own example. 
' B^ecauce, A whole nation ought not in the mean liiae lone 
dishonoured, nor'lts immemorial characteristic brought into 
qucsiionfor ihcartkof Ministers; and bccauw it is the doty of 
those sulject"^, who", by the ronstilotiou of the Government,

The attention of the Public has this week teen .dtielf 
engroMed by the Wwiin g ot Partiatkent. The Iddrrs*. 
bj 'pMBtetD^ hr'tmgiag futvrtkii the moit important and 
molt ditptited poUlical topic*, has at once called forth ait 
the energy of the Opposition. The chief point agaiust 
which they have directed their attacks i« the afiair of Cu- 
penbagen : and the refusal of Ministen to give any direct 
proof Miivt thay bail n.>ciiiv«dpKvioHs iufonnatioa of the 
hoelile ditpMitiOM of BoMaark, vfiiBrded tb«m a icopc too 
aniptofAr eensore and m\e(tiT9. It had been reported, 
that there existed some ditt'creiice of opinion on lliijibcr.d 
between the Members of UpposiUou ; but the contrary 
was very clearly domonstrated, by the energetic and lUv- 
cided disaj>probation exprcued by Lord Qhbnvii,i,>, of thr 
in«4<ure« adapted by MinisMrc. U is still idmo worthy of 
remark, that Lord Sidmohtn, who has «tway$ been noted 
forlhe CQhicUeoeet>f his 's<ntimenU with those of His Mx- 
.issTT, expfeasad hi» disapprobation of the attack on Co- 
penhagen, with a d(;gree ,of vehemence and acrinumy 
which his Lordship ijcldom employs. This circumstiinc'., 
might give riae to f orae spurulatioiNit cspiicially as Ills .1U- 
jbstt's re(uctaiica la th* ^ucasure h|w not bnen concealed : 
but Lord llAWKssBtuir, wfaotc oimncctinn with the Court. 
renrAiilVMiinpaiiH, «trepi6Dualy de&udcd its propriety. 

TheOppoaitiondidnotcfansBtotry their strength .\!^aiiisi 
the Address, and tlierofore it was carried in both {|<>u«p% 
without a division : but a Protest has since bccu cnlvrul »u 
the Journals of iJic Lords by several Pecr^i, a;;ain»l tluit 
clause'in tlie Aildress afiproving the attack of (!upcnh3«;e.ii,

Jtoyaliy. But nature is liot s<^ soon overcome. S o sooner were

("Solr rrferrrd to in So. \.) 

The Emperor Urancts II. could «o| behold without thedeepesl 
oneern; the rnptore which took place last Antumn, befwef* 
his Miijestv the Enipernr of the French, King of Italy, and bis 
M:tjest> the' K inc;_ of Prussia » and l>e Vas shortly afterwards 
stlHmoro painfully nlTecli'd, by the extension of hostilities over 
a coiaiderahle part of Europe. *If by observins; a strict and 
scrupulous impartiality frt>iii the very commencement ofthe 
war, his Imperial :iiid Royal Aposlolick Majesty, has had the 
siitisfaction to maintain his'jys'tein of neutrality in circnmslanrcs 
81 critical,, and to pres»'r»c his people from the ravages of war, 
he did not enter the less fully into llie miseries which were mul- 
tiplied around his stales ; and in his just solicitude for the tran- 
quillity .and the security of his Monarchy, ho could "not but he 
sensible to theconliniiaily renewed alari\is upon his frontiers, or 
to the fatal effects which they Inevitably produced in varions 
br.inches of his interior Administration. The Emperor, tmtfnrro- 
Iv animated withthesome dispositions, has hart no other view 
from the commencemenf,and4urin^lheco^rse of hostilities, tian 
to endeavour to bring .ibiiut a reeoncilintiou, ami to avail him- 
elf of every proper oppiirlnnitv to put an end to thecalamltes 
of wart he judged he cotild not better effect this desirable resJilt 
than by cmistanlly inprcssing the liellegereat Powers with his 
senlimenti of niod'iTMtlnn and of conciliation, and In giving hit 
whole aitc-iition towards prod'icing iu Ihcin a similar disposition. 
The reception which his first overtures to this effect have (*- 
tHiiied; appears 'to announce that the moment of so desirahlea 
reconeili.-itiouisiiotfardlna«t. In the confidence inspired by 
• 1 eonsolitnry a prospect, the geiieial welfare and the ioierestt 
nfhis own dominions call upon his Imperial Miyesty to offer t<» 
the Belleger<<Bt Powers his friendly intervetilioa ; and jo ronsf- 
jjueoceof this, he does not hesitate to makeio bis llritaiuiic }ix- 
jpslv-the offer of his medtetion, and of his good offices.

reason to be convinced, that he is sincerclv dciirous <ff the re- 
ettabliihment of a maritime peace, upon equitable and lionour-

_ The Emperor of all tlie Rufsias not only offers his inlerpo'i-

The IJndCr»i£ued hM ilin command from the Kii^ h\i Master

celiaoce on-tlie King's ditpositioo to contribute (o the restora- 
tion of a gcn>>ral peace, Sdch as may ensare the repose of

POUTIC.tL 2i>K.vrs Of TUB IT^MMt 

ifjiti artirles of iateni°:ence received this week are net of 
pc^itiV importance, at lea^t Trbon compared with the great 
f'Vjsiits to Viiich M^ Ijave lately Wn accustomed. Bona- 
r > uTK secins to )i;jTe sorac schemes in aeitatVon for ititl fur- 
»i|< r allerinjrlhe (listribi>i:ion of Italy. The Queen of JExnu- 
MA has been' mailc to Ir.d adieu to her dominion's | and, 
ji,ft''r taking an ati'ec'lionate titreMcU of her people, and 
ullinj tiiom the lasf ot mind "he felt at leaving them in the 
jiand-i of so eti^Kllqtt a ^civ^nigH as-the Emperor NAroLco'ic, 
li.is formally i\vacua!ed the country, carry inj; a\<mf; whb 
per .-I tram of, fifty wa»»on» loa'ded with- her baggaj^c. 
Mic bus the pror^iisc of bemg'indemmfted in tome otber 
ijuartcr for tbe loss of her teeritorien j but whether fo 
/urtr^' or not, tbu account! do not state.' 

The re«uU pf our present discHSsioM with Americft it not 
2|f yelMccrtiiued. The American* seem equally alarmed 
■I'^e proceedings ef the trench nnd the liri'liih ; a^d 
^reading that the vessels will be captured and confiscated 
w'^rev0T they steer, they ha^ lakian embargo on all their 
pwp gliips at present in port. It must be allowed that it is 
j^crncl neccsstty for a neutral najtioo to be obliged to put 
ap ,end to Jiirir own commerce, ift. order to prevent it from 
nlliiig into the hands of Allies with whom they are at peace ; 
put it ^ot% not seem probable that they can remain any 
longer neutral, if the report be true that UowArAitTE hat 
^a)ly demauicd of tbem to join oitber i'lance or Britain. 

The same prderf ifstied by BoWrARTK agai;nst all neu- 
troll Tvjio have any i|fterco«fr*e whatever with us, havr 
peep .enforced in Hiiiland by King Loots. He has also it- 
fued similar' ordpr^ against the veueUof Sweden, ns have 
formerly 'been issued against those. Of Britain, declaring 
)hat be is equally at yrar with both coi^ntries.

.at our Court, pbich has been laid before pjjrliainenr, and 
which wc have iiiS(>*Htd at jengtb-jn our.Papcr of this doy» 
/t prove!* tlist AiutriahaVlheinciination, liut not theiih- 
fluencc, to meilialc a Peace between Britain and I'rartce. 
Tlic notes of I'rincc^rAiiRmiiETiG shew a coH*cioi)sness of 
thii circiimit^ncf. The ltus<iian correspondence discloses 
.^iltle that was noti previously ktioTn.

^Jtioof "<l<'P^ed in the Rio de la Plata, with respect to neu- 
tral tjrade. ' All neutrals are excluded for two years, even

There is every rcaMn to suppose it woi one 01 the latter, il

Tobago, oil <he (round of ill bfii«( an Eagliih Colour. 

JrlieU VITI.— Bonaparte will demand the reuion of Sieil^, 
t« complete the kingdom of kit hnotiier tha Kii^ of Naplet. It 
•roald indeed be an unfair cirrunntance for King Joseph to 
lw«c fo lajTKe and poputou* an iitand.io bh neighbonii|aod,.ttill 
•rkao«r)ed|;iBg the xrav of that mnnarrh it horn he had drivra 
from hU other pottewioM.'" Great Dritain, howtf cf, ^"1 "ot 
eMMrql t» K* ber ally (Mpoiled of territories which (be can dr- 
fett, onlew a itff lar^ rompfenvation, meh as she would bet 
'willing to accept, khnnld ba prnrided for him. The Ital(«ric 
I4wid«, which France propoKd a* aa equivalent, are by no 
tncau* • (ntSvinit cnntpeusatiou H* Sicily, whether we ttgutA 
tlieir roainitadr, their fertility, their population, or their 
ftten^th. It docs not appear, hOAverer, Uiat the Franch were 
likely, in IMt^to make this an article nna qua nont adlr it it to 
he mpp«te4 tlwit they wotitd have broke off a ocfociation 
uieirly on thU accoaot. 

jirtMe IX.— France .irooM refine to aegociate naten in 
ewwrt with Rucsia, and wonld therefore demand that the 
^i\m» of this ally rlwuld be rathfied. To this we could not 
well reftise oar sitcDt, as tve broke off the lasit negoriatlonwilk 
yrntre, merely becawe >he would not listen to sifch a proposal 
on Our part. We could not rijiect, as onreasmMble, a propositi 
«n the fcaionaWeness of which we bad oarselv** lo loodly iu- 
»i.ta«. 

^r«c'« X.— Reparatinn will be demanded for the damage 
which Denmark uttahied fraai o«r forces, preriom to the 
dertarstion of War. That ]H>wer is aow the Ally of Rotsia 
Md Fr%nre, and both these powen have pledged themselves to 
•r«rure for her this reparation. We orast achlMwIedge that 
tlic dtScnIty attending a rompromiie of this eiritiimsiance, is the 
•nfy nbttacte which se^nM likely to perplex the negociation in a 
ve^y ferloui manner ; yet we cannot conceive that oor notions of 
national pride, either on the one itde er the other, hboaU allow 
the c«aieqaeaees of this trinsacttoa to dcfriTc tba anirerte of 
thcbleisiagsef Peaee. 

/IrHile XI.— Great Britain will demand of France the rmti- 
tuAon of those- territories of which she has lately robhed Por. 
tugnl. To this dennind,' it is not more likely that, the Fren^ 
will accede, than that we should pay a compensation to Den 
mark, tt is probable that, in the event of negorintion, (he two 
tra°U9(wtions with mpoct to' Portugal and Denmark, n ill be set 
off againtt earh other i and that some Spanish islands wiU be 
altoted as a fttrlherroiiipeDiBftnn to the Prince of tlM Urazils. 

JrlUh XU.— Great Britain will demaod Cor her faithful ally 
the King of $weden, tbi* restoration of those postessiom in Po- 
meraal* which hare been wrested from him by the arms of 
Ffaoce. It is not, however, to jbe expected, that Bonaparte 
wbl' readily retract tho>e threatV, which he has so often ut- 
tered again<t that restless and spirited monarch, to deprive him 
entirely of every posseasion wliich might give him any tiUe to 
interfere in the affairs of Germany, (iroat Bri'ain, on the uthrr 
hand, could never consent to see the King «f Sweden left wii boat 
a»y indemnification ; and it is probable thnt theltrtile gcaias of 
Bonaparte, ni,ded by his complete comuasd 4if eontinenifU 
territory, wouldi soon devise an expedient to reeoacilc these 
difltenltits. Byaa ac^'csiionof the populous and coamercisd ter- 
ritory, t« the South and East of Holstein, Denmark might b< 
raised to the tank of a considerable continental power i and 
Bopapaijie would ti^ to the auiinosUy excited in this power 
against Britain for,* long continuaoee of her friendship with 
FraiKe." Ip lien oT.this accession of .territory, Denmark might 
not bcimwilLingta rcnonnce her claim to the iahospibible re- 
gions o^ Korway t and these, in lam, roijikt afford to Sweden 
such a compensation as mi^t sooth her feelings for the loss of 
Pomcrania^ 

Such are the stipulations si'hich would, ' at present, probably 
form the basis of a negociatian.between..Fr.-uire and England, 
if these could be ai\iuited to the latisfaction «f both parties, it

is not probable that considerable dTflirulti'es would ocenf «i|h 
rrgand to less important points. The fejutt wotild certainly be 
liighly ajdvHDtagcoHl to both paiiirst since, in the Cenditinnt 
which we have specified, Bonaparte fuikct no demand wMth 
could dimiiiiih either the powpr or the prosperity of Britain; 
uar are the demands of Britnln anywise rcpagnant to (he iu-' 
tcretts of France. 

There at« men, both In Britain and lo-FranM, who aiifht • 
quarrel with the moderation of the^e citnditiow, and think that '" 
neither of their goveminents « ere jusi iCrd in cniuredii^ so much 
to the enemy. The sanguine French politician might exriaim, 
that the modem Cvthage (mght tn be hnmbled, that the nuglit 
to be compclh;d to renounce her .is:<uiiird tyranny over Ihe.scaj, 
and be liroaght to acknowledge herself ex.nctly on a level with 
all other maritime nations. Onr Knglith politiclatti of rife 
same stamp will, no doubt, tind that sttch conditions ite tame, ' 
spiritless, and insecare ; that Bonaporte ooght to be made to 
stipulate ezaeily the number of ships which he shall be coflHed , 
to build' or maintain in the hai^otirt both of France and of her ', 
dependent allies ; and that lie ought not to be left in possrssioa 
of thenomernus imphrrtant naval stations which be has ocMpied. 
Bnt it it evident, that neither the one nor the Other canror 
speetively force its nntagonist to submit to such Conditions : 
and between faidepcndent nations, everyman of real dlscemmcot 
will allow, that a Peace of modeiatloa is alone likely to be per* 
manent. 

We eannot close this article withirat mnarking tliat the light ' 
in which Bonaparte views this conntry, at present, fs very dif- 
Irrent from that in which she appeared to him at the period of 
the Peace of Amiens. At that titne Fraiice had not fairly tried 
her uttermost eflbrts against Britain i and Bonaparte, on tiirvey- 
iiigliis own vast resources, and observiag that Billafti had al- ' 
ways so anxiously courted and "bought the asistoncertrf folHgtr 
Allies, wiiile France bad so complMely overtuiiied' fliese coin- ' 
bimttions, eonceitM that NrHatn was acftraHy unable to coti- 
teod siogK-handed wMi Fiwice, a«i had even the temerity t» ' 
make a public boast of this oi>fnton. But ex pericnce has tlore 
proved to him the (Mter futility of sach notions ; nnil at prestint, 
though Franre is assisted by the anited power of the Continent, ' 
the has been aUe to shew her antawtlty against IMtain, only bv ' 
vexations decrees which have annthHated her own a omm sr te 
and injatti that of neutiwl liatiom i >vhUe'BfMihi, attogMker 
hryond the reach of ber enmity, continues to insiitt bt^ coattt, 
and to navigate tbe Seas in perliKt security. It it not'Ilkrty, 
therefore, that Bonapartr wHI siHRrr s«toe suddlen gust of p«>- 
sion to precipllhte him again inia hostilities witii a datioa. ' 
which, he kimws froia experience, is capable of intlicHng ail his 
subjects such serious injuries, while retaliation it be'^ood bis

should consider himself as eoonsel for the prtsouer, and 
consequcmly bound to he mast iwneular i.i reeountlng 
every cirenmstance tliat may weigh, on the side of mer- 
cv. This singolnr trail of bomaolty has arisen from a very 
cruel practice in our criminal procedure, one of the •barbarous : ■ 
remains of the feudal svstem. Accordins to that sy.«tem, both 
the lands and the people were considered as the property of tt»e 
King; and hence tlie Art ton arow, that all oflenoe»/l».j.engain«t, 
the wbjects were aj-ainst the Kiog.-..- But it was th-tfid.t unpar- 
donabli in tho* d»ys, that a subject should '«':""«'•'' '" P"""! 
against the King in his liwn courU ; and theft.-ft.re tlie,p«»oi.er 
was denied evorr aid ou his trial. In eases of high treason, 
where the KingVas pertoreUly interwted, not only xvns tho pri- 
soner refused the assiJtnnce of coon^el, butit was even acrounlea 
a special favour if he were allowed to ,nmm,.n »vitne^sesmbis 
■favour, to cro«.<jueriio» those of the King, or th makt anV 
eoneluding commV-nIs in his, own behalf. Sarh was the shvie of 
things when Sir Walter Raleigh prayed for deliverance fronvlhe 
bM^ lams of England. An alleratioa, which does bonour to . 
the humanit v «f modem times, hat taken (ilace in these aOairs ; 
and State Trials arc uinv couductea, as they so much reqnirc to 
be, with every indulgence to the prisoner. In the or<li«iry 
criminal prosecutions at common law, however, ^the arcus«d-is . 
»till left at a cruel disadvantage : he. is allowed the ass-wtanc^ of 
<;ounsel merely in suggesting qacstums to be put to tJie wit- 
nessis, and ingivlng him hints for his own procedure. He is 
MIoued no assistant* in suinmiag up the evidence, or ni ftaling 
his CISC in the most forcible rammer to the J ury . t rom bis ifc- 
noranecand want of aliility, he is usually obliged to cousisn . 
himself silently into the hands of bi» Jodgss.- 

The humaiilty of the Kogltsh character, revolting nt the 
cruelty of the«s institntioas, and yet unwilling to depart from 
ancient forms, has endwivowed to •"'"^."P .''"^ •*/''' ''>;''^ 
si wular fiction, that the judge is to Reconsidered as coon*rt

AFrAIR* OP COfBlTRAtfCH. 

Afa. G, ToxfoSBt', agreeable to a previous notice, rose and 
tald he faiid .-in important aud anxious duly to perftvm, a duty 
which he hoped. wjiuld lead to disclose ihr circumstances which 
Induced bh )1.tjest.v to direct his naval and military force against 
the capital of an annffeiiding neutral State., His Majesty otved 



motives n hieb led him fn violate the laws of oeatrality. ' It 
was «-eII understood that the diicrareful expedition was not un- 
dertaken by the advice of his M^esty, but trith other views, 
and perhaps interested motives, which M>i|isten only could 
explain. It was not thfc conduct of Denmarlc whieh led to it, 
but an anticipation that France would, ~at some time or other, 
compel that State to^Sio in tbe . eontBion canx a^almt this 
country. At the time Admiral ftainhfer entered the Sound, 
netimark dreaded no harm from this country, conscious of niit 
huvinj; entered into anv eiiifngrnient wlh the French Eiiiperot;. 
Tbree hundred and fl^ty of her ships were In dilTcrent British 
pprts, with cargoes Amounting to two millions of rix dollars ; 
and when the Danish subjects got alarmed by the rnmonrs 
spread, respectiug the destination of the arntantent, they ap- 
plied to the Oaulsh Court, and received a reply, which at once 
allayed their fears, namely, that Great Uritain had no such in- 
tention, as both Courts were then on the best possible noder- 
Mandln;:. Was it to he supposed that Denmark would risk her 
most valuable colonies, her commerce, and ships, and every 
tbinj else dear to her exIMencr, merelyto gratify the wish of the 
French Huler. But at the time the negociation between the 
C >urt of Demailc and the I'mperorof France was sun"osed (u 
be goinft forward, the former had, according to the lalc lation 
of the llight Mon. Genlleraun opposite tn him, .(Mr. Pa eeval) 
fixty-live thousand men in /e.-iland and Holfteio, tu oppose oil 
the force France could bring.against her, therefore it was mo- 
rally inipossibie she could lie compelled to enter into the views 
Of France a'aire<t this country; on the other hand, asapmof 
that Denmark did not intend to Join in the common cause, her 
sailors were nt the time all abroad, consequently hernavy could 
not be Minnned witbout them. He would spare them the trouble 
of replying, and boMly affirm that they had not the slightest 
Ifround for impeaching the good faith of Deumark ? He defied 
JHinistcrs to produce any paper which would convince the 
Mouse of the intention of Riis<!ia tn intuenee Denmark to dr- 
clare against this country. The Hon Member then moved, 

*' That an humble Address be presented to his Majesty, that 
he would be graciously pleased to give directions that the sub- 
stance auri dales of all infaramtion, seat by oar Oflicers or Agenli> 
from the coakt of Coprahagen, last year, respecting the Danish 
fleet, the repairing, impraviag, and manning of the same, tn- 
ntber wUb #11 accounts that were trausmitted relative to the

that day. 

Tltp Secret Articles of the Treaty of Tiliit are moreoTer still 
Unknown to the Court of London ; and ilif T;odcn>igned has 
vainly required a communication of thu^e arrangements, the 
*tccotlun of which dally devclojies objects in no way conform- 
able to the spirit of the ancient alliances, and absolutely pre- 
judicial to those interests, the inainlenancc of which formerly 
connitutrd an es^otial part nf the Russian system. Is it then 
forRus»iato complain of secrecy, whilst that Court absolnlrly 
refuses (he only pxptanatinn which could ha^-c been satisfactory 
M> the Court of Luodoo, as to the imeiidaus and (he projects 
meditated with regard to her? This silence, this extreine re- 
jfrte, may serve as proof, that (heCabiupt of St. Petertburgh 
were ihemselvet persuaded that thoif secret arraogcmenis were 
directly contrary to the interests of Great Britain. As to the 
tranquittity of the Baltic, hiigland has never recognited any

There was n custom in some cities of Holland, that a respect- 
able householder shoiild every erenlug take a round of earli 
diMrict, to fee that the guardians of the ni^ht performed their 
duty. It » al>5olutrly m-ces:>ary that loinr person should, in 
like manner, take a snrvry of those criiirs who pretend to be 
the watchmen of (be public (a»te. Feeling this necessity, ite 
coine before oar readers to expose the folly aid ignorance of the 
periodical KCibhlers, and scour a little of that filth which is 
tbroKii op In blind the eves of imp.-irtial people. Vfc havr not 
<|uite so iiiurb vanity as the persons whom we wish to lay upen, 
and therefore we do not, tike ihcm, set out by prof, ssiog an 
uoifualKied satisfaction in our own abilities:^ but therouscioat- 
Bcsi of experience, perhaps, authorizes us' to promise ii>me- 
thing, and if we have not al^'ays wit, we hope never to aban- 
don diecencv. If lending the way, we can induce others, better 
qualified than ourselves, to undertake tht; office of undeceiving 
the public, we shall think onr laitoan aiuply rewarded : to 
have opened the first drain will tie somesort of credit — lie who 
cleanses the whole rppusitory, will be a Hercules indeed ! 

Among those Papers which have struggled for pre-eminencr, 
in coar!>ene»s uf abuse, The \rm> has loi^ stood eompicuous. 
The theatrical department of that publication was formerly oc- 
cupied by a gentleman, who, while the ardour of y«albM 
zeal perpetually hurried him into gross error, seldom railed to 
di'plny luleots which, in many opinions, redeemed bis faults. 
He held do certain course, for be wandered thriiagh an ex- 
panse with which be was totally unacquainted: but If, like a 
meteor, be travelled irregularly, like a meteor he blaied as be 
flew. Now we are told, in the Psper ittelf, that bo no luogrr 
directs its colnmni : and if we hod not been told so, we should 
pnibiibly have discovered it, witbAut taking much trouble in 
hunting for a cine. The internal evidflnre is sufficient. The 
new Uritic imitates the faults of bit predecessor, though be can- 
not catch his keaittiu : and having dressed Jiimself in the 
plumage of the pencock, he does not expect to te recognized as 
a daw. But literary qien will see the diflVrence between bim 
and bis predcceisor— «nd Peter Pindar will, perhaps, apply 
hU old line, 

Fleai are q^t lobster*, d->« their ioult ! 
The Setct of lall Sundky contains rematk* on the Comedy of 
Something to Da, at which wegAvenn account in 1'lie ftaliSnal 
H'Jiiiter iifjast Suuday sc'imigbt. Thil Comedy, as our readers 
will recollect, was never acted bat oncet and any body would 
think that it must have been very •tioecessarjff for The tfemt to 
di!4arb the dead. Hut in comes their critical Returrection-man, 
and lays out the pourcorpse, ia order to shew that It would have 
b-en a good figure, if it bad not been bruisMl to a premature 
d«alh. We are really eoaeeraed not to take \ity •nlire of this 
wC«t«ked piece, bat wa laall; fb*l tk» <■«» ivaltcd when a 



ptar devoid, of iaeliJent, and stulfed with flat caricature in- 
stead *f character, is flung once more in the face of the 
world, aad set afloat in all the buoyancy of putrcfacUiin.— 
Wc were unwilling, i« our t^wn accouut of this piece, tn 
siy any thing about the manner in which it was_ actt J| be- 
cause the plav was^condcinned, and, as the, object of cri- 
tici«m is refiinn, it secmsin general a needless cruelty to attack 
an actor for ftiults which be can never have an upportunity of 
repeating. Hut when we And tlih critic coming forward to la- 
vish encomium on tlie acting of Mr. Elllston, in the character 
of JnttM Mem, the only comic part we ever saw him act m 
which it was Impossible to praise any thing, we feel ourselves 
a little irrilatod at the owtragewhich is committed on every pnn- 
ciple oftrue taste, and cannot fofbenr.froro entering our proltsl . 
against the luii-rcpresentations of Th* Kex». The character, ■ 
though iutolcrahly flat, is gross enough for the lowest farce.and 
Mr. Elliston ««!. not satisfied with plajirg itai farce, but he 
mutt needs pbiy it as broad pantomime. The elenul bustle of 
his hands and feet, the |ierpetual saluiskllon of his neighlMinrs by 
riiOiling itg"inst thetn, and the interrupted delivery of passages 
which dught t6 be eonoeeliNt, would prrhap< be very St for Mr. 
Orimaldl in a melo draro», but are faults to be avoided by Mr, 
Elllstcm in cmnedy. air. Ellistnn is an excellent comedian 
t> hen be cbuses : w«l as it very seldom happens that he does not 
rhuse it, nothing should have tempted us to recard an exceptiiw 
to our general admiration of bis talents, but the absurd leal with 
» hich his deftcls have been construed into beauties. We can 
never conuive at a system of triticisra which is intended tn make 
black look like white, and we have received ton much pleasure 
from Mr. Klllslon's meriU, to encotwage bim In a repetition 
l-of his errors. , . \. 

So much far the matter of Tke Kern, and the manner is about 
as giiod I for we flltd several such elegant fcliaiies of expression 
as the following : " Tha nsMt. of U was," &c.- " Every body 



was in tke niceii tune (• rtUih a basUiag comedy," &c.— " In 
the former incident Is a greater reeifrotUji «/ fuller and . 

guUee," &c ^The last two «r(. actmitg seemed,' Ac. 

Theit! are several mote such phrases, but we are sore our 
rcai'en will spare us the tedium of extracting there. Tlie critic 
mistakes perliiess for wit, and vulgBrtty for ea»e ; but the dap- 
per smartuett of literature l8*t least as tiresome as this fiirailUr 
impertinence that apes good manmsrs : and Tbe Nnr$ is as »e-

omflietiiiK tjoicn of lOisiia 
and France upon the Tiirkiib Empire, it ran never be ceoteodeii 
that onr iotemis were mtfnanjr Woimitihy ndK oMTentton. 
That, If any article in the Treaty of Tilsit related to the TurUrh 
Empire, it waiaa artirlcrciEoiatia^tiMWMpeMHUi »f the de- 
$ijn» of the contracting partiei apoo that Empire, \» abwhilely 
<^rtai«. Chi no other tcrmiooaldEeace hetifcen them have been 
eontmcted. The design* of Ruisiaapon the Torkuh Empire, and 
(be designs of France, are opposed to one another. About the 
partition of those spoils they never wilt ap«e. In that question 
,toi>, Austria is more deeply interested than any other Power, 
•nd will, whenever it comes to be derided, risk even ber exist- 
encf , to turn the decision In her own ikvonr. To have agitMed 
the qnettion of the partilioa of the TarkM Empire, was to 
kiadt* aaaw, iMteml -of •ztlB(;aifhiag, the flaaes of war} and 
tt was only by a^treelne to lay aside tkeie designs for a season 
that Raisia and Tnnte could have concluded a Peace. Nor Is 
tbls the only convincing proof afforded as of this Important 
ipoini. What raliooal motive could the Emperor Alexander 
kave for urging Peace between this c«aatry and France, bad 
kekaown that, iacai^^netion with France, he was aboalto make 
■B attack opon the Tarkith Empire) Was be not aixehitely 
certain that we should take arms on such an aceaslon, if not to 
preserve the Turkish Empire, at least to secure to Austria as 
Urge a share of that Empire as possible? He could have no 
motive, therefore, in argiag, with so nMcbcamestacm, a ^ace 
which must Immediately be broken < and fr«m this circtaa^riec 
it b abundantly evident that no secret article for the partition 
•f the Turkish Empire existed. If it be said that be and 
Hapoleon intended tn deceive as into Peace, the mare easily to 
arcnmpllfh their detlpis upon Turkey, this is absurd. , The 
fact is, that a state of War ajfbrds many oeeasinot for sarprising 
a neighboorii^ state, but a condition of Peace I* eatirriy ad- 
^iie to It. When a large force is already on foot it is «a»y, by 
pretending one desiinatinn, to aroompllsh another. But, if in 
• season of Pc<ter, Europe bebcld Kiisiia aad France conjointly 
Arming, and drawing force* towards Turkey, there would be 
•aly one conclusion. It is a very extraordinary truth, that at 
fbe moment of the Treaty of Tilsit, the Emperors Aleaander 
iknd Napoleon, could they have agreed about the partition of 
Turkey, poesesied advantages for the aecomplistament of their 
•bject, which there was no probability they would ever again 
obtain. How easy for them would it have been to have im- 
|MHed absnhite silence npon Austria, which had no force tliat 
tiottid once bavefiiced them, and have been in possession of Con- 
stantinople before a British army coald have approached thr 
Oiiene of action .' That ihey did not act in this manner, at the 
■lonentof oaequalled advantage^ is demonstrative proof, that 
the design was laid aside, because the two Monaroht were sure 
diey cottid not amicably settle their pretensions. 

In regard to a Northern Confederacy against <mr maritime 
daim<, and a secret article to thi* etktt in the Treaty of Tilsit, 
Credulity and prejudice themselves will not believe this after the 
tntelllgence which we have now received. What is it that his 
Imperial Majesty so earnestly nrge* In the conferciice, we have 
previously inserted, with Lord Hutchinson ? It is Peace. But 
a Northern Confederacy required War. With what absurd al- 
legations have we been perplexed. Cottid a Northern Confede- 
racy have acconplisbed any ol^jeet which they had at heart, 
their business was to prosecute the Warj tbey wnnid never have 
tpoRen of Peace. It Is said, however, that the Northern Con> 
frdcracy was planned, in case we should refuse to make Peace. 
This Is truly amusing. What indication of this do we And in 
t)ie tone or proposals of the Emperor ? What was he to gain by 
tl i What possible consequence could a Nnrthem Confederaey 
iavc produced, but, at the wont, to reader the War a little 
more expensive on our part ? That tt could have had any snch 
•Sbct as to force at to renoance oar claims, is absurd. In the

therffore, n4 a jipint ascertained to certainty, {hat no tonMe 
racy, onthe part of Russia, was meditated against us at the roi* 
•etasloa of the Treaty of Tllsttt w« regard it tooatapoist 
equally certain, that she would have opposed herself, if s<it 
with arms, at least w itb ruaoastraacns, tn any attempt »f Bosa- 
partc to violate the neutrality of Denmark ; and we regard it as 
a pniqt highly litihabte, that bonapnde would not have vie* 
lated it In the face of these remonstrances. 

Ito this first conversation, every thing on the part nf the Eot. 
peror breatl)es a spirit of fri«ndsbip towards this cnnntry. He 
Is first anxioas to justify to us the Fraea which he had n&dc. 
He appeals to our Minister, whether even he did nntncconnl Ike 
Peace, whirh had been concluded, necessary to Russia, in the 
atostcmphatical manner did that Minister pronounce his opinina 
In oaisoA with that of the Emperor. Cnmprlled, by iopcriogs 
necessity, to make a Peace for himself, his good offices were in- 
terposed immodiatcly to accomplish Peace between us and our 
eoem^l not (according to the jnst distinction which he mads 
himself) in the spirit of vanity, but in that of friendship, siac* 
he regarded Peace as equally conducive to onr lotemts, and t* 
those of the other notions of Europe ; and since he luiew that 
termSi which kt considered both reasooable and hononmblr, 
nay, which, be csald appeal to our Minister himself, wen 
reasonable and banoorablc, would be oflcred by our rneiay. 
Nothing, too, can aford a greater indication of simplicity ami 
sincerity, than the maimer io which the Emperor answers tiie 
olyertion of Lord Hutchinson reipecting the shortness of lbs 
tine ofiercdfor our acceptance of the mediation. It appran, 
clearly, that the limitatioa of the period, on which so mack 
stress was laid In this country, hod been regarded by the Ea> 
peror, as a mere formality, and of no imparlance whaltarvrr. 
At the moawat of Ibis coBfcrcnci-, it appears a cortfunty alimt 
as strong a* a case pf such % nature admits, that Russia %ras en- 
tirely tile firiead of this coantry i and the probability was great 
that she woold much sooner agaia be tb« enemy of Franc? > (lis* 
the enemy of Bo g la a d. Htr friesulsbip with Frnaee was «am- 
pelled; of coarse ungratefiil, and likely to last no laager tb*< 
tbe necessity was aifeat. All that fear and jealoosy of ITraac*, 
which had predpitated ber into the contest, not only remained, 
but WM more r«4«ooaU« tbaa ever. With England she bad o* 
qoaricl, but that of too fieeble a co-operation i the tie of ancirst 
connection cemained unbroken i and England was still the grasd 
resource a^nst the terror of her great continental aotagoaiit. 
She might still, in a very important sense, have been legiorded at 
the Ally of England. Such, it appears with the stronsmtavi- 
dencc, were the relatians between Russia and Engioad, which 
remained after the Treaty of Tilsit. How depjnsable ami 
mighty was the change affected by the attack on Coprnhage*. 
ibe Kcood conference with the Emperor, of whirh Lord Ilutcb. 
i|iSMi staled the details, is a memorable and striking proof:-* 

" IntrUigeoct, said bis Lordship, of the rrralt of the attack 
on Copenhagen arrived at St. Petcrsbur;;h on thr 87th or S8(h 
of August. On the 4th of September 1 saw the Emperor a te- 
nand time nt KamhtrostrolT. 

" His Imperial Mi^my began the niaversatioM by asking 
me, what I tboncht of oar attock apon Copeobogen i 

" I replied, that I was entirely IgnBreat of the circfmstaoce* 
whirh had occasioned Ihiit attark, but that I hoped the .Vdmi" 
iiistraiion in England could justify themselves, and prove to tb* 
world th.1t the Danes were on the eve of julninr nil their fortes 
to the French, to make cemmoa c^use against Engtiuid. 

" His Imperial Mi^y told ate In reply, that tt was impos. 
sIMe for me to be of that opinion. If I would recollect the ro- 
i^ated conversations which bad taken place between us, on ili* 
subject of Denmark, at Bnnenstein, in which be toM me that bW 
had awd every eCert in his power to brii^ forwatti tbe Crown 
Prince of DenoMrb, and to induce him to tola tbe coalitiod

REVIEW OF POUTJCAL DECLAIMERS. 



No. VII. 

MR. COBBETT'S SPITEFUL ATTACKS UPON THl 

AMERIfA.N'S. 

If It has beei} violently objected to Mr. Cnbbeth that his 
opinions are uifitulile, andshort-li^d, he inav def v his hitterert . 
enemy to hrlog this accusation agaiitft his reienimcntt. These 
woaldapueor to he at deep npd durable, n» the other* are h^stt 
and transient. Whelher this perul'Ktrltj of rhararlL-r is a proof 
of great wisdom, and greafviriue, or the oonimry, is not thft 
present question. The fact h ondtiiiable, and is of no littl* 
consequence toward enabling ut to form a jiidRment of the worth 
of bit leatimeatt relating to the momentous quettinos on thk 
ti^^etkofouT lelations with America. Ahuo-t all the opioioiii 
which Mr. Cobbett held oo the other £>d'c of the Atlantic at« 
now changed. Mr. Pitt be then regarded as no angel for 
taleatt, and a taint for parity; be now desiKtiatei him at the 
shallow- hearted Pitt, and describes him as Ijuviiig been a cor* 
ivptiag, jobbiug, squandering oppres>or. Sir Francis Burdett 
wat then a hend let loa^e from thesulphurout pit ; he it now Iha 
only' man who has a chance to be the saviour of his couolry. 
At that lime be described the Briliih Constitution as equally 
pWf^tin practice and i» theory t he now represents it as prao- 
tically teaailog with aiMue* aud corruption. S'ach is a :^oit 
tperiatea of the<l»ange» in Mr. CohbetCs opinions ( hut hi^ re» 
tantmeata agyiost the Americans appear to be .is keen as ever. 
He seruisiocapat>(eof for(!etting(he violent qui:nvl he had wills 
llisin, and tho lotsr« and hardships which it ro^t hiiii. There is 
8nmetbiagia.tfais, however, extremely unreaseoiible. 

If was in pteaehin^-with violence andfurytbotevery opiniiim 
which Mr. CoW»etl hannow renovated that be created tboseen». 
mief w hose ill ofRres have madeto deep an ire pression fin h is mind. 
Is It not eitraordiiiary therefore that Mr, Cobbcltdoes not reJc« 
that as his vloleiKC and fary in favonrof opinions which he no^ 

j condemn!, was hifthly unreatonalile, he may have given cooti- 
derabte-caasefor that enmity which he excited, imJ araintt 
which it rmentmeni is yet so intense > If ;0 maoy of bis opinion* 
were entirely wrong when be was in America, why may it not 
happen that tbe very bad opinion wl.ich he formed of the 
Americans theinselveswas uroni; lil^ewiie? Witl»^ut advening 
to any other evidence of this ayegation, may we not w.^niier 
why Mr. Cobbeit does not rslfecf that tbi« opinion wliirh h« 
fumed of the .'\ro?riciins, wa' ,1 iille better th.in a corollary from 
theerrtmaout.notioinuader^ Jch he then laboured. If Mr. Cob- 
bett, when in America rojjRercd all Kings, with theirsom,n(>- 
Ules,uiid cle^v' asdenii'^.o^s, heroesan'ian el-; and tiy cm 5«- 
auenca.hated a'peoale^^vlio Iwd violent piqudires ayrainst thelfi 
all ; and if Mr. cAli.-lt now hat (n'<'stly altered his opiri.'ni

hoq the advantaged the Bank ei\joyed inpoisesiing the balances

lie ictimmed off. — The refuse of fish-nil. from the above process,

^Is likewise an excellent ingredient for blacking for Ici'ther. such

€lefence of his honrtty, after fome jeTcre taools from fir jirthur^^ 
produced the deed, eicrofed in his favour by the Inte Baronet ; 
Sir Arthur Y^ay'raji hiiuglitilv _demandt:d, ** Why was not thik 
produced before?" he emp'bati<^lly relortt, .''Why woj ll 
produced now V — 'Wennnnt avoid notlein{ the qwiint attempts 
at wit, which often degmernted into puns, vtmfof which, we 
hape, the public will be excused front liitenh^ to in future; 
particularly where Leww, in Modem, expreutt his dislilte for 
novob; as arising from his love of n«tie/(j); nnd also where 
Solace tallcs of having got tipsy, and being liable to a fine, for 
moving Wine, without a Permit, ^beyoad the quantity allowed 
by the Excise. 

It also deserves notice, that Mgtrnon, the hero of the piece, 
did not appear, until the last Act ; this, perhaps, was in imi- 
tation of 7'«reace, In his " Fair Audrian," wnere Glycerium 
the Heroine, i* never tcfrn, hut is /leard, by the audience awt 
the old fathers, crying «ti< for assistance, on a very Interesting 
occasion, to Judo Ladm, the patroness of ladles iu the 
•traw. 

To analyse each Actor's exertiom, would be beyond our 
limitF, and where all did well, to notice one or two might ap< 
pear invidiimi; but it is not ntaf i prop** to obterve, that 
Ali»s Smith's character will, perhaps, be better liked, when 
the plot is undeittoed, as on ilktjint representation it appeared 
rather disgusting to see the supposed fVift of AlgtrnQti, co- 
<(uctting with Capt, Koisrv, and (uffering blm to kilt her 
hand, &C. 

There was another actress, whose general mode of acting 
aod evident efibrts to please, ought always to screen her from 
illiberal censure « but we hope she will not be oflSmded at a 
friendly bint, that, although a fremient extension and eren 
violent action of the arms, may be alUwable ia tragedy, yet it 
|« ra(bcr«nnatural in the simple Country Girl, theprofif /e of 
«C«itt«ge, aotwilhstandiiig she wo* Just come from a Boarding 
School. 

Upon ithe- whole, onr general opiaion Is In favoiv of this 

J)iece, yet Are strongly recomiuend much curtailment, jlarticn- 
arly in tlie-tw^ first Acts, vhere the action seems to haqg very 
much ; anS .nisa in the common-place puns, and leiktimeiKal 
clap-ln\|>f.: 'olhiTwIte the authors attempt at wit, upon the 
Parli&ineiitar}' Debates may be turned upon himself; and we 
may he tempted to congratulate, ourselves, " that although 
(greed «« Aear, it is fortunate that we are not oblijged /• rcatf."

At the most Remarkable trait in the character of Hercules was 
his itreo<tth, nnd the most Interesting incidents to hit poetical 
life, ^rose from hh almost miraculous exercise of it, we are ra- 
'ther surprised that the artht should have choMn to represent 
him In a state of repose— ft ^ as unnatural at reprtsentlng a 
war-burse A^Trept "'' *■ frozen catarach. In this rompntitinn, 
cootWiIng only uf Hercules nnd his Clith, the pyfjunldal outline, 
and the anatumiral filling up, are well preserved, yet there is a 
cold sameness of colonrtng, like a work done in bistre, which 
though it produces relief, yet, from the want of contrast in the 
tlghfi and shade!, preteolt to the mind the idea ofabronie batto 
rtffsvo, rather than a painting. In other respects, the expres- 
itoa of the countenance, and tb^ lassitude and relaxation of the 
Musdes, admirably denote a state of repo«e,' whilst the fore- 
•ihorteniBg of the right ibigh shews an intimate acquaintqnce 
With anatomical perspective. - 



No. 224.— Sca-St'TW— S»n-Set. J. PotocK. 
The well'camed fame of Mr. Pocock, as a Marine Painttrn 
will always indocf ip to turn to his perfoifMisces, with analiuMt 
certainty ofgratttcatioo, and in thb eifort of his pencil wewcia 
not disappointed. The surf, breaking on the botch seems evi- 
dently copied from nature, and not as we are often forced to wit* 
ness it, as if the Artist bad formed bis ideas from a storm is a 
washing-tub ! — The effect produced by the S^ttiog-8un, givti a 
pleasloc glow to the fure'^ftrpond, and marks that (brquered sb- 
scurity in the dislMce, so characteristic of an eveninggalc.trhea 
the ansiotis Mariner watches the declining Sun, doomed, pct- 
haps, lo see liim rise no more. 

With nich acknowledged skill as Mr. Pocock possesses is this 
line of painting, we raiutot hut feel regret when be turns bis at> 
leution with kiu effect to other subjects. This ohsei^atioi >t 
drawn from us by- No. So!: — A Landteape and Aomtjltf — ia 
whiofa there is a tame, uninterestingaccuracy of outline, rendered 
even moie displeasing by an affected contrast in the colourin;. 
The distant mountains hsive a darkness of parple which aaty'* 
never glsKs, whilst the trnes aad rocks in the forf-groundt, «r« 
marked with a general smoothness and equality of browsiih 
tint, that destroy the effects, and is by no weans consonant t» 
arial f t p n t tlve.

A* a Cattle Painter, Mr. Gilpin has oflen gained the need 
of applaaseat former exhtbitions, aM in this piece, his H«n» 
are certainly wail grouped, and miritedly executed as Utrm t 
but were it not for the Cgvre of Gulliver (n a corner tracing oat 
a suture ndouhi oo the land, they might pass for English 
horses in a Park, as nMKh as for the Houhnhyms of Swift.— 
Thene b so«ethiiig so hisarre, aod beyond nature, in the ori- 
ginal idea, that wecanaltwdonly to the satire eoutaioed in it» 
we are Mt ■srpri s ad, theicfote, if Mr. Gilpin has failed ia his 
attempt to embndy mi idea on enovas, to wbicb the nott 
luMriant fancy cannot give persenttcatioa, and where the es- 
prsssion of wonder or delight might as well arise front th» 
sight of a good feed of corn, as from all the horn works and 
huf-mootts of a Pleydell, or a Vaabaa. 

We looked round with anxious expectation for some tpecimnu. 
of Vceehey's pencil, bnt were rather disappointed at finoiag odI^ 
some pretty little Londscape*, with the exceptinn of a Monk t 
Head, No. 389. In this there Is much character and explo- 
sion : the mixed tone of religious Hope nnd R<->igt»tioB i* well 
marked, the lights are nell matwged to aid the gieneral effect. 
aod there is nothing of that stifiaets which might be ciptctel 
from a pencil so macb acoutoUKd lo Portrait painting. 

We snail be happy lo a fuuue Number, tn notice the nnme- 
rous efforts of Miss Spilsbury's pencil, together with WettoU, 
Thomson, Drammond, and a long elrelrra.

Fridav the Opera House disputes were again submitted I*

was made to enforce the late award of the Marquis of UcadCbrt 
aod Mr. Ogilvy, sultjectto thetemperageof the Dulie. of Bed- 
ford. The ease was stated at great length by Messrs. Fmi- 
blanque, Hart, and Johatea, aiM the old topics of C.-italnBi'i 
enormous salary, the dlKharge of the Treasurer and Sub-Trea- 
surer, and the misapplicatioo of the funds on the part of Mr. 
Taylor, were ag^o Urged | when the Cliaocellnr obiterved, that 
hs would hear the other side next week. In the course of the 
liincredings hu Lophip also observed, that it waspextkinto 
madness to submit the di«pute« in qnestion lo the Court. He 
roidd do nothing unices all the parties were before him, and h 
that case it would probably involve the concern in utter rain.

mother, became Cotwteu of Orkney. By this Lady he hud no 
Children. His Lordship was celebrated rather as a tun vivatil 
thanafhshionable, and for many years had the reputation nf 
being a fix iottfe man. For many years he had a seat in tho 
Brillth House of Commons, as well after as before his acces- 
sion to the Irish Earldom of Incblquin. Abopt the year lt$4, 
he was married (his first Lady being dead several years) to Alls* 
Palmer, the amiable and accomplished neice of Sir Joshua Rry> 
•olds, the bulk of whose fortune she inherited : Mr. Burke act- 
ed as father to the bride. In 1804, he was created Marquis nf 
Theaond in Ireland, and shortly after made a Peer of th« 
United R ingdon^ by the title of Baron Thomond. His [^rdshi|» 
was in his 85th year, and to his last hour enjoyed a most envia-

As his Lordship fell, a cart came up, the wheels of which went

FlllK.<— The fire virhich broke out at Mr. Nichols's Printings 
oiSce, Bed-lio]i-pasuge, Fleet^lrcet, broke out at ten oa Mon- 
day night, and coatioued burning until four the next noming.— • 
Tliere if no certainty as to the manner io a hich it origiMted, 
more thau that it is generally supposed to . have begun fk-om a 
snuiT of a caudle having been dropped in the ware-room. Tha 
whole of that very extensive concern is coosumed, and valuably 
works that have be<!n nccumulntin;^ fof many years have been 
entirely lust. It issaid that Messrs. Nichols nod Son were in-- 
sured to a considerable amount, but by no means equal to c<ivcr 
their loss. There is a remarkable circumstance related, wbicli 
is as follows : — A servant girl was in the kitchen, alnoel sufib— 
cated with thesmofce, aad uiable, through terror and depriva-> 
tioa of breath, to move ( a firemaii discovered it, broke open 
the wiudow, and at the risk of hit own life saved the girl's. 

The weli-knowo character James George Scmple Lisle, com- 
monly called Major Semplc, has again been apprehended for 
having, under false pretrnccf, obtained money Trum Mary Bur- 
roughs, who some time Bgd advertised in one of the Dnily Pa- 
pers for • sitaatlon, as a nursery-maiil ; the Major had in con- 
teqoence thereof .applied to her, infonning her that his nam* 
was George Smith, F.sq. of Ruehampton, and that he was 
in wont of a servant of her dcscriptitm s tikis being the case ' 
she readily accepted of hisodfr; it «ns agreed upon, that io 
thecourseof a day or two he shotild call upon her,' ami inform' 
her w hen she might go down to his residence. The Major, wli«n 
nbout to leave ner, said, thut he nnfortunately hail left hts' 
purse at home, and, as he wonld see hershortly, reque<ted tbo 
limn of a few shillings, but she having no silver, oB'crcdbima 
even shllliB^ piece, which he took, laitbfully promiriiig to re« 
turn it her at the next meeting, since which she had never heard 
fi-om him, or seen him, till the day of his apprefacosina, aad 
then met him in St. Jamr>'s-street, from whence she watched 
him to hisaixide, and had him avpfBheaded, The Complttiii- 
ant, however, not appearing to substantiate the charge, tb* 
Major was dismissed.

thiiusonds a- year in addition to th« present revenue of liie 
Princes. In tbli view of th« itthjeet, thr f;r»nt to t1i«ir Ito>«> 
IIigliues.4rs loay ereo be rej^arded ai a saving to the nttiun. 
Ilnn' n.iiurni n it for other pareott to gratify tlieir fo«lia£s l>i 
jtijjiartius the rircuinslaJicn of their good fortune to tlieir fii- 
mity? IIn\r cruel would it be to deprive, a good father of thii 
grUifieatiou becau^ he is a King ? True it Is that the cireuiii- 
Mancesoflh people require aiuelioralion. But the eonipara- 
tive (rifle which A»as bestowed upon the-Princef, would have 
frfhly operated toward this mit;lily object. 

But the iiyustice and indclicary of the complaint', mhleli 
liaTc bee* raised <ta this subject, arc not app^ueiit from (hesf 
coa!!i<]eratinn« alone. When we compare the revenue, which is 
enjoyed by the junior male branches of the Koyal Kaniily, w illi 
.the iniomesof a great proportion of our Noliility.nnd even ofour 
fientry, we sliall tiiidthat it is far from exorbitant. It is not in 
the first, it i», perhaps, not even in the second, rank of the reve- 
nues which are enjoyed by the leading men of the country. 
Vheir rank, hoivev«r, is the highest of all ; and, by the received 
ideas of our country, it is underMood and expected, that exi'ence 
, thoujd keep pace with rank. A great evpence, therefore, in 
not so wucU a matter of choice with the Princes, as a matter of 
neiefiilv. No economy on their par* could enable Ihrm to 
prevent it. In all public subscription?, for objects of charity,, 
or of utility. It is expected tliat the Orilish Princes shall take 
tl:r. lead, and both In tlie frequency and the magnitude of tlieir^ 
donations) jiive an example to the rest of (he community. It U 
not computed how large a dc.uclion i< maJe from their receipts 
In (he course of .i year on this sole accouu(. I'rom all those 
roiisiderntions, itdoc> appear illiberal to criticise, with severity, 
(he paternal generosity of his Majesty on the present occasion, 
Were it not for the Mcrifices which the people are obliged (o 
make, lo the roninleoiince of an arduous contest; were (hi'- 
eountrv in the full enjoyment of peace, and of (he blessiiiss, 
and riches, which it bestows, it would be far mire becoming a 
liberal Xat ion, joyfully to welcome the proposition of an in- 
creased revenue to the Sons of their Sovereign. This, indeed, 
. we are fully convinced would be the case ; and were (he pro- 
ductive powers of peace enjo'jed, for but a fetr yfiirs, we have 
not a doubt, that a revenue, con cf ponding with the improved 
circumstances of the country^ would be readily granted to the 
J'riuces.

."^■•iikiug a stand against the pr.icticc of disclosing what 
t ** pMsedia conSdencc between a Uritisii Alinister and a IToreiyn 
t" Prince." The sense, in which this was uuderatood by (he 

ntmae, appears, by th6 remarks of some uf the opposite Speak- 
icrs. Mr. Windham cotigratulalcd the House on a new defeadei 
.«&etiqueUe. Mr. Ponsonby said, " lu the best times 'of 
<" English history, the conduct of persons lu the highest staliom,

Mr. Cnuning defended his npiiiiua, by stating, that thitmodp

suij, not contented , with jEO^uuii^m^ions, in the ordinary and

Miiiis(er« of Circa( Britain, that (bey migbtjlpt betrMteiias Vi- 
ferlflr, insiiitcd upon simil.-ir privileges. It'thus happened, that 
all the m«<( important parts of diplomatic iiHercotrse were hi- 
eluded in those rungeonieef. Kings and Emperors, hovevrr, 
would not submit to have their private communications divulpd 
in our Parliaments and Keqspapers; and would, for tjiit 
rea'on, deny, our Ambassadors that access tiy their persons 
w bich they granted to those of other nations. 

■This doctrine, without doubt, was very unlhinkinglyadrancff 
by Mr. Canning. It is opposed to the very office of Parlianrat.

as a good, but that it destroys the evils of society by destroying 
luxury, you venture a bold doctrine upon a feeble fuuudatinn.
