Sugar— The sugar market continued very steady till towards the
close of last week,when a renewed demand commenced, and prices Is
per cwt. higher were obtained, and more business was reported on the
Friday than for sometime preceding. There was not much business
doing in Muscovades early this forenoon; as the day proceeded, the
demand revived, and the estimated sales exceeded 1,500 casks; the
prices are fully Is.-higher than on this day week. The deliveries
from the warehouses. appear to have fallen off materially last week.—

*#* In some of the earlier impressions of our last number, the letter |
of the Rev. Mr. Browne, appeared without our having been
able, for Want of time, to get it corrected. “ Bating the right,”
ought to have been barring the right. Instead of “ the law,”
taken before Ministers—vow should be the word. In the last 1
line of the first column, the adverb not is omitted before the
word “ allowed.” There are some other blunders in spelling
which the indulgent will overlook. “ Austin” is printed]
“ Austen” in the Pamphlet. The Latin words connubium
and contitbemium were erroneously printed conwbium—eon-
■tuberniums.—The above corrections apply only to the papers
issued in the evening.

GEORGETOWN,

THURSDAY EVENING, DEC. 11, 1823.

OiR Second October Mail arrived yesterday morning, with »
papers to the 23rd inclusive—being but three days later than
our previous accounts. We are not informed of her having
brought out any Government despatches, relative to the pre-
sent state of this Colony; but, if so, the general feeling of
anxiety which prevails on that subject will be soon relieved,
we presume, by their publication. The London Newspapers,
with the exception of the New Times, of the 22nd October,
have hardly thought it worth while to discuss the question
arising from a consideration of the late horrible events in this
Colony, in way of argument ; and that paper, which is de-
voted to Ministers, and the Editor qf which (Dr Stoddart,)
we know to be the personal friend of Master Stephen, the
Coun el of the Colonial Office, contains a long letter, breath-
ing sentiments of the utmost hostility to this colony, clothed

jin the persuasive language of that imposing style which allures
but to deceive—which captivates but to destroy. We dread
the impression it will produce. The laws, policy, character,
and institutions of this country are held up, in a clear and
decided manner, to the detestation of every Englishman.
Pinckard’s Notes on the West Indies are speciously referred
to in proof of the protracted and revolting cruelties which
the Law recommends to be inflicted oh the persons of con-
demned insurgents. The cause of the late deplorable insur-
rection is ascribed to any thing but the right one:—our
"y Planters are brutally stigmatized as men, than whom, in any
' part of the British West Indies, no Body entertains feelings of
more decided and universal enmity to any humane object—
and that, in fact, they are almost the only persons who have
\ not yet felt enough of the ruinous consequences of the existing
/ system to weaken their attachment to it, and dispose them, in
some degree, to concur in its reformation. The Missionaries
Per are described as Ministers of the Gospel of peace, who go
(from a happy country to the worst of climates, to instruct,
)&c. without the hope of any temporal recompense beyond a
— a bare subsistence, and with the certainty of meeting in the I
society they are to reside in, hatred, and contempt, and perse-!
cutions. A hope is expressed that if any of these men are to
be tried, that it will not be by men, like the Governor himself,
( Planters and slave owners of the Colony, who are hostile to
] the instruction of the Slaves, and determined opponents of
\ the measures recoininended by Parliament. The necessary
1 example which has been.made of the desperate criminals is,
execrated as an indulgence of extreme vengeance, and the I
Governor is almost directed to arrest the course of even-
handed justice, by putting a stop to further executions.

We cannot trust ourselves with a farther elucidation of the
odious character of this production. What we have adverted
to is sufficient to call for the utmost vigour of this traduced
and aggrieved Colony, in order to defend itself against pro-
\ ceedings which are getting beyond all bounds in violence and
^disgrace. Is there no man to be found, in this crisis of terror,
be we had almost said dispair, to speak for his country ? Can
’ such things be, and we suffer ourselves to remain passive spec-
. < tators? Two months ago, we predicted that the late events
’ / here would be twisted and turned to our disadvantage. Even
\ those of the West India interest itself, who are unconnected
““ ^with this Colony, appear to be opposed, or, at least, indifferent
about us. The old impoverished Islands, we fear, entertain
|feelings of selfish prejudice against a luxuriant soil, and a sa-
/ lubrious, though decried, clime. It is the indispensable duty,
/ therefore, as we have often said, of every man amongst our-

> selves, possessed of the means of giving information, to come
. forward with documents and facts. Silence, under present
( circumstances, is absolutely criminal:—it is only commendable,
at the best, in a “ neat’s tongue dried.”

I With respect to the enormous calumnies recently vomited
\ against this Colony, in particular, in reference to what Pinc-
kard wrote, thirty years ago, about the cruelty of its Laws,
I we could wish we had a voice of thunder to call upon these
' slanderers, in habit and repute, to shake off their drawling
effeminancy, to forego their ease, and pleasure, and doating
attachments, in nubibtts, and set out on a voyage to a country
th 1 which fearlessly invites, which courts, demands inquiry; and
.'challenges comparison with any place where Slavery exists,
for the mildness, humanity, and indulgent kindness with which
it treats its black population. Why don’t they commence, in

/ their own proper persons,'an investigation upon the spot, as
I to the truth or falsehood of those Colonial Reports or docti-
i ments which they have the audacity to pronounce to be
untrue, both in Parliament and out of Parliament, from
/ whatever quarter they may be derived, or by whatever
f evidence they may be supported? There is no class of,
\ persons, scarcely a single individual, connected with the West
a'l Indies, whom they do not brand with infamy, and hold
_ up as totally “unworthy of credit.” Even Clergymen, of
“ / the most irreproachable lives, are treated in this vile, ‘ satanic’

I manner. Shall the beer and porter brewers of London, the
I Quakers of Liverpool, an old slave-holder Master in Chan-
cery, the squires of Yorkshire, and their proteges the traders
\e to Sierra Leone and the East Indies, be cooly permitted thus
L co trample upon us in their own parlours ?—We want to see
ythem face to face, Macauley, it is true, is coming out with a
ie green bag to the Virgin Isles, in order to collect, from the Slaves,
ie 1 complaints against their Masters! Is not such sort of agency an
lunutterable mark of disgrace to the whole Country ? We

â–  desire enquiry, indeed, and shall be happy to submit to scru-
/ tiny, the most close, but none but accredited Commissioners'
( regularly appointed by Government, need ever expect per-
' mission to interfere with our local laws and regulations. There

= is nothing in those laws we have reason to be ashamed of;
>r but if, upon deliberate consideration, alterations may appear
n ^beneficial or expedient, the most willing disposition, we are
’’ /sure, will be manifested, in every quarter to agree to them.

;t Away with the feeling of veneration attached to the name
e/ of Wilberforce, which so many of our countrymen are not
g ashamed to own is, with them, a habit of which they would
not divest themselves without sorrow, and humiliation ! < They
talk of defending the cause of Slavery with temper ! It may
s pe very easy to prosecute the war against it with temper ;

/for any one may feel a perfect calm in his mind, while sitting
down deliberately, in his library, in England, to compose
I, Speeches, and write books; but would he do so on the edge
” ef a volcano ? For our own parts, we are more than ever
/convinced, whatever discretion ought necessarily to be exer-
(cised, in these distressing times, that Romeo’s feelings towards
Tybalt, on the death of Mercutio, could not have been
more acute, than what should actuate us, now, under circum-
stances of the deepest, gloom. We are not timid alarmists:
but we must not conceal the apprehensions we are impressed
Iwith, as to the ultimate and approaching fate which awaits
the integral parts of the British Empire, if the preponde-
rating influence of mistaken Philanthropy is not speedily
subdued. 1

r The events which have recently taken place at Demerara
must make a deep impression on the public mind. Had not
the rebellious spirit, which manifested itself so boldly and un-

1 equivocally, been met at its commencement with decision
j and vigor, the result might have been productive of the
, most calamitous and incalculable consequences. Without
stopping at present .to enquire into the causes of so foul a
revolt (causes which we make no doubt will be forthwith dtlly
investigated) we feel it our bounden duty to express our un-

’ qualified approbation of the wise and spirited conduct pur-
â–  sued on the occasion by Major-General J. Murray, the Mi-
) litary Governor, and to bestow the due meed of praise, on all
, the officers and men, who so manfully encountered and so
effectually subdued the malcontents. The example thus set,
deserves to be recorded, and followed on similar emergencies.

js WEST INDIA QUESTION.

j . (Letter in Lloyd's Evening Post.)

r, /S~ . ------ .

j ' Sir,—When the bill for the amelioration of the slave popu-

lation in the West Indies was under the consideration of Par-
" liament, many of the members connected with the colonies,
d and acquainted with their local circumstances, deprecated it
h as useless and theoretical, and calculated only to produce dis-
content and rebellion among the slaves. Petitions were also
presented to both Houses on this subject. These statements
r* were, however, disregarded, and the bill, with certain amend-
ir /tnentss meeting with the approbation of Ministers, passed into
y a law. The consequences of that bill are just what were ex-
jf pected by every man acquainted with the West Indies. The
_ slaves of Demerara are in open rebellion, and the greatest fears
are entertained for the other colonies. It at first appeared to
e me surprising, that Parliament should altogether listen to the
ig statements of men perfectly ignorant of colonial affairs, while
n the planters themselves were entirely disregarded; but this
;s has been since accounted for. There exists both in the House
of Commons, and also amqng the people, a strong prejudice;
and the West Indian Planters are considered as men quite
L void of humanity, as incapable of the feelings of Englishmen,
a I and as unable to appreciate the blessings of liberty and educa-
e| tion. The fact is this—the planters are, for the most part,
3_ men who have received a liberal, though perhaps not a classi-
\ cal, education in this country; they have imbibed the same
0 1 free and liberal sentiments with their fellow countrymen; they
f, tare equally anxious for the happiness and comfort of their
o /slaves; but knowing, ‘ as they do, the real state of the West
>f Pn4’es’ d° not wish to see a system acted on, which, for
ats impatience and violence, will do no good, but will at once
y /destroy the existence of the Colonies ; they feel it a duty,
is i which they owe to themselves and to their families residing
el in the settlements, to oppose such measures as endanger
their personal security and their lives; but when these
things are ,urged in Parliament, they are immediately obli-
terated by\a canting speech from Mr. Wilberforce about
e religion, and violent irrelevant orations from Mr. Brougham
d about the rights of mankind. I hope, however, since the evil
d has begun, Government will send a strong force for the protec-
_ tion of the Whites, who are, in point of numbers to the Blacks,
Jas 1 to 500; and I entreat Mr. Brougham to reside a short
cl time in the colonies before he talks any more respecting them.

FRENCH OFFICIAL ACCOUNT RELATIVE TO
a SPAIN.

t •

tl.

recapitulation of the events of the campaign.

', x '. /French Official Account.)

On the 2d of April, before entering Spain, the Duke of An-
gouleme addressed a Proclamation to the Spaniards, and ex-
pressed himself thus:—

[Here follows an extract from the Proclamation, in which the

> Duke stated that he came to deliver the King, to restore the altar
and the throne, to rescue the Priests from proscription, &c.; and

] that he came neither to impose laws on the Spaniards, nor to occupy
rhe country.)

Next day, the 3d, in an order of the day addressed by the
’’ Prince to his soldiers, it is stated—“ It is not the spirit of con-
e quest which induces us to t&ke up arms. A more generous
; motive animates us. We are going to replace a King on his
2, throne, to reconcile his people to him, and to re-establish in a
country which is a prey to anarchy that order which is neces-
I sa7 to..the happiness and the safety of both states.” His
Royal Highness closed the address by recommending the most
;, exact discipline, which has every where been religiously ob-

1 served. Such was the commencement of a war destined to
place in so conspicuous a point oi view French generosity and
glory.

On the Gth of April the army was put i'n motion. The Bi-

- dassoa was passed on the 7th, and his Royal Highness was
a received at Irun with cries of “ Live the King !”—“ Live the
j the Duke of Angouleme 1”—cries which were the presage of

the sentiments with which the French were welcomed through-
r, out all Spain, and the pledge of the success which on all points
‘ • has accompanied our arms.

t Ort the 17th the white flag waved at Vittoria; on the 22d
] at Burgos; on the 25th at Saragossa, On the 24th qf May
c the Prince Generalissimo was received as a deliverer in the
‘ capital of Spain. A new proclamation repeated there the mo-
tives and the promises stated in that of the 2d of April.

2 In anticipation of'hostilities, the King of Spain, the prisoner.

- of the Cortes, was removed with the Royal Family to Seville.
5 The revolution not being terminated at Madrid, the army

of the centre continued its march.

3 On the 12th of June the Cortes considering themselves no
3 longer safe in Seville, decreed the departure of the King, in
i spite of his refusal, declared his dethronement until his arrival

in Cadiz, and exercised the most odious violence towards him.
j Cadiz, at the southern extremity of Spain, reputed impreg-
nable, could not be so regarded by our soldiers. The Prince

3 Generalissimo was there and directed them.

Seville received our troops with acclamation. Granada fell
‘ on the 25th of July. Cadiz was invested by land and sea.

Meanwhile other armies were besieging the small number of
places which still held out, or pursuing the enemy wherever
" resistance might be made.

> Catalonia, Arragon, the kingdoms of Valencia, of Leon, and
r of Gallicia, have been the theatre of some of the most brilliant

> feats of arms. Corunna, at the western extremity of Spain,
on the coast of the ocean, surrendered on the 21st of August.
Several Spanish Chiefs successively made their submission.

: Cadiz still remained, and to it all eyes were turned.

t The fort of the Trocadero, which protected Cadiz on the
I land side, was carried on the 31st of August, amidst ^cries of
, “ Long live the King!” and by prodigies of valour.

Santi-Petri, one of the bulwarks of the Isle of Leon, was
taken on the 20th of September by the Fleet. Three days
I previously, Pampeluna, the capital of Navarre, fell; and on
j the 27th St. Sebastian and Figueras yielded to the courage
; and the ardour of our troops.

The 1st of October crowned these high deeds. The King
of Spain, at liberty, repaired with the Royal Family to the
head-quarters of the Duke of Angouleme, and on the 3d Ca-
â–  diz surrendered. Thus were glorious events precipitated.
1 Thus in less than six months all Spain had submitted, and its
King was delivered.

Alcala, Oct. 2.—His Royal Highness the Duke of Angou-
leme arrived here yesterday, and is to leave to-day for Seville
Paris, Oct. 18.—We have for some days past the Spanish
Journals, in which is to be found the letter of Don Antonio
Salinas, on which the Liberal Journals are much occupied;
as we have not found in them a single fact, and only decla-
mation, we have waited in order to learn the entire truth. '
The Restuarador, in which this dispatch appeared, repeated
what it said the day before, which was, “ that there was a re-
volt amongst the troops of Ballasteros.”

To-day we learn that the King has assigned the town of j
Granada to Ballasteros, to await there his orders. The dis-
banding of his troops hao been ordered, and this measure ex- f
periences no difficulty.

The King has confirmed General Morillo in the command
which the Regency has confided to him. <

* Madrid, Oct. 10.—-The dawn of peace and happiness did
hot long beam upon unhappy Spain; the Decress of the King (
of the 1st and 4th of this month, have spread consternation (
amongst all classes in Madrid, not excepting even the monks t
and most decided Royalists; but the worst is to come. Al- ,
ready the inquisitions are preparing, and further decrees of a t
more rigorous nature are expected, amongst others one for a r
forced contribution of twenty millions of' reals to be levied £
upon Madrid, and the exile of numbers of the Nobility of
Spain, and the confiscation of their property.

“ Among the names cited to be denounced for banishment
are, the Marquis d’Alcanizes, the Marquis de Santa Cruz, the
Marquis de Villafranca, the Marquis de Villa Paterna, the
Count d’Altimira, the Duke d’Abrantes, the Prince d’Anglona,
and the Duchess de Benaventa. It is also a question of the ge-
neral disbanding of the army, which will reduce thousands of
’ officers to despair and mendicity; finally, there are no expres-
sions sufficiently suitable to pourtray to you the deplorable
' state into which we are plunged by the perfidious Counsellors
, of our Monarch, who appear resolved to conduct him direct
’ to the precipice, and to plunge the country into an abyss of
> evils; and it is at a moment when Lopes-Banos has yet 6,000
men in Estvemadura, when Morillo exercises great influence
; in Gallicia, and when Mina firmly maintains his position in Ca~
' talonia, that such measures and decrees are adopted and pro-
’ mulgated. By this system they drive to despair all the Con-
4 stitutionalists; for perish if we must, say the most indifferent
' and the least courageous of them, it is better to perish, arms
, in hand, than to receive death on the scaffold.

’ “ The occupation of the fortresses of St. Sebastian, Pampe-

; luna, and Cadiz, by the. French army, is another subject of dis-
’ content on the part of the Royalists, who fear (without any'
ground, in my opinion) that they will always retain them. The
officers of the corps of Ballasteros observe no reserve on this
subject, and say openly absurdities which I will not venture to

’ repeat, so repugnant are they.

, “ It is notorious that the King does not live in harmony with

; the Prince Generalissimo. His Royal Highness desires that
. his Majesty would accomplish his promises, and throw a veil
. over the past; bnt Ferdinand inexorably persists in being an
; absolute King, and in governing according to his own good
, pleasure ; and hope vainly seeks for some means of opening
the eyes of Ferdinand, or of inspiring him with moderation.

’ May the councils of wisdom and experience penetrate the
; heart of our King, who may compromise for ever ahe fate of
„ Spain, and involve himself in a labyrinth of sorrows, per-
' plexities, and disasters.

“ The King makes a devotional sojourn of nine days at Se-
' ville; he has exiled the Duke Medinacely for declining to fol-
1 low him. It is said that the French troops have not entered
the town of Cadiz, in which the most complete anarchy reigns,
that the Members of the Constitutional Government have been
’ arrested, and that the majority of them had taken refuge in
the fortress of St. Sebastian.

“ The number of persons who, in conformity with the De-
cree of the 4th instant, must leave Madrid, is estimated at
15,000, and they form the flower of the capital. The munici-
pal authorities have published pn outlawry register fun ban),
and each hastens to obtain his passports; it is an afflicting spec-
tacle, of which no man can form an idea. A1I the exiles seek
a refuge in France.”

Extract of a letter from Corunna, dated Oct. 12.—

“ Thp King’s arrival at Port St. Mary was announced here by
a general salute from all the batteries, illuminations were ordered
by the Ayuntamiento, and the Cabildo Eclesiastico sang a sokmir
Te Deum of thanksgiving,'at which all the Public Authorities us-

â–  sisted. His Majesty Proclamation previous to leaving Cadiz was
instantly reprinted and profusely circulated among the troops;___

peace was hailed by all parties with much apparent satisfaction

. Morillo’s officers publicly declared they had attained the object of all
. their wishes; that it was never their intention to support an abso-
| lute, but a moderate, monarchy, to unite the desires of the people
with the instruction of age; amnesty, forgiveness "and oblivion, they
said (in all the coffee-houses) had been conceded by His Majesty,
and Spain would now' be happy. In the midst of these rejoicings,
a Correo de Gabiueti arrived; we all anticipated good news : each
officer expected promotion, rewards, and honours; some had made

' preparations to set out immediately for Madrid, to demand pensions,
empleos, &c. ; in fact, every one had built his temple of Fortune.
—In about an hour corrillas were observed in front of the post and
printing-office, a confused rum rum hinted that some unpleasant
information had been received. After a short time his Majesty’s
Decree, confirming the acts of the Regency, and destroying and an-
nulling every thing done by the Cortes, ivas generally known; all
rejoicings were at an end. Losada, Loriga, Novilla, and the other
principal officers, declared they'had been imposed upon ; that un-
der Morillo’s Convention the Cortes par tcstamentos had been a-
greed to be established ; that they would not hear of despotism, in-
quisition, or allow themselves to be governed by the Fray/es; there
was considerable agitation among the troops, some of the seijeants
and subalterns of the regiment of Granada, who cried out “ viva la
Constitution,”' were arrested, and towards night several French pa-
trols paraded the streets and preserved order. Should violent mea-
sures continue something serious will ensue.”

Nothing is more remarkable on the great stage ofEuropean
politics, than the difference of conduct observed by the pre-
tended friends of Constitutional Government, and the zealous
supporters" of absolute.power, together with the result of their
respective systems. Russia, for instance, is at the head of the
European party for absolute power, and against political amc- -
lioration. England, so far as there is an opposite or Consti-
tutional European party, is at the head of it. IIow different
is their conduct! Every one knows the principles of the Go-
vernment of Russia ; they are impressed on every agent whom
itemploys; they enter into every negociation in which it
engages. Not only every petty prince, and every petty party,
in every petty state on the continent, may rely upon the Em-
peror for countenance and support, if they pursue his princi-
ples, but even every useful or marked individual receives testi-
monies of his regard. A Procureur-General at (M. Mar-
changy) cannot make a foolish tirade about the universality of
Carbonarism, without receiving a diamond trinket, and an
autograph letter of approbation .' there cannot be a poor fugi-
tive from the rigours of the absolute despotism which his
Imperial Majesty supports, take up his asylum in the mountains
of Switzerland, without being pursued by his enmity. M. de
Chateaubriand, for his refusal to admit English mediation in
Spain, and for his firm declarations against the establishment
of Constitutional freedom in the Peninsula, has received three
autographs, and other more valuable marks of friendship. The
absolute-power people, therefore, know on whom they can
rely, and are in danger of mistaking the principles on which
they are expected to act. The clients and the patrons, worthy
of each other, are in close alliance and cordial union. On
the other hand, nobody knows what foreign policy England,
which is at the head of the other party, really is inclined to
pursue: no one knows the principles of her Government, or
what reliance, even in a notoriously just cause, chn be placed
on her countenance and approbation. Her Alien Act seenls
framed against the persecuted friends of her freedom; her cold
dissent from the principles of continental absolutism appeal's
like a secret approbation of them. There is nothing decided
in her march—there is nothing that inspires confidence in her
intentions—there seems nothing fixed in her principles. She
holds out no lights to guide her friends in ordinary times, or
to allay them in danger. Her agents abroad are supported by
her money to counteract her influence; and never venture
upon the approbation of a free opinion, or the disajiprobation
of an arbitrary act. The consequence is, that the Holy Alli-
ance, with the .Emperor of Russia, is every where and every
thing in Europe; and England is no where and nothing ex-
cept in Great Britain and Ireland. “ Verily, the children of
“ darkness are wiser in their generation than the children of
light.” England, which could about a year ago have roused
the Continent in favour of human rights and national inde-
pendence, must sdon feel the evils to which her vacillating
and indecisive policy exposes her.—Times.

It is said to be in agitation to bring bills into Parliament, in
the ensuihg Session, to restore five or six of the Scots Peer-
ages, forfeited by accessions to the Rebellions in 1715 and
1745, the favour being (at least for the present) confined to
cases where lineal descendants of the persons forfeited now
exist. No person, it is presumed, can object to the grace of
the Crown and Legislature being shown thus far; but it does
not seem easy to discover a solid principle for the selection, or
to say why the same grpee should not be extended to collate-
rals. Why those whose blood is, in the legal sense corrupted,
should be preferred to those whose blood’is pure.—(Edinburgh
Cour ant, Oct. I6.7

• LORD COCHRANE.

The following letter from an eye-witness (an Englishman)
to his friend in London, gives a tolerably clear idea of Lord
Lochrane’s measures:—

“ Maranhqm, ■Aug. 29.—Since my last of the 26th June, the
place has been a scene of confusion which it would be useless to
endeavour to describe. A new occurrence, however, has now pre-
sented itself) which bas produced a change of scene, though perhaps
eventually it may only serve to plunge it into additional difficulties.

“ On the 26th arrived ofl this port a 74 gun ship, under English
colours, which turned out to be the Brazilian man of war, Don
.•) Pedro the First, commanded by Admiral Lord Cochrane. She
presently anchored in front of both the forts, brought her broadside
to bear upon them, and then, for the first time, hoisted the Imperial
Brazilian flag. The forts could do nothing against his Lordship,
£jr the cannon formerly mounted on them towards the sea had been
almost all removed to the land side of the town, to protect us from
an enemy in'that direction. There remained, indeed, in the two
forts, about six or eight guns mounted on the batteries; but as it
was manifest tliat these could not sufficiently protect the town, our
authorities resdlved, wisely, I think, to surrender at once. His
Lordship consequently took possession of the place without firing a
shot. A revolution was immediately effected in our political situ-
ation. Maranham joined the cause of independence. All the
European Portuguese here were disarmed, and every one of them,
high or low, that held any office, was at once turned out, and his
situation filled by a native Brazilian.

“ Lord Cochrane at present acts as sole Governor of the place,
and exercises a pretty comprehensive patronage; for he nominates
any person he chooses to any office he thinks proper, appointing
them all, of course, in the name of liis Imperial Majesty, Don
Pedro. Several Proclamations have already been issued from on
board the Admiral’s ship, and signed ‘ Cochrane.’ His Lordship
has not only made prize of all the Portuguese ships in the harbour,
but he insists on having two-thirds of the property in the town be-
longing to Portuguese in Europe. This seetns to be pretty sharp
practice, but I presume his Lordship will find some convenient '
chapter in the Law of ^Nations to sanctioh his doings ; he has, of
Course, taken all the money in the Treasury, and, in fact, I think
he means to drain-us of all money in the town. No vessels have
been allowed to sail since his arrival, nor can any business be done;
he is at the present moment busy in overhauling the Custom House
records in order to discover Portuguese property.

“ A steam engine lately arrived out here from England to work
a double force pump,; it is to be put up at Itapicaru. The rice
s mills in this neighbourhood are all stopped' from want of a supply
. of rice. There is much difficulty, to get in funds of any sort; and,
as I said before, I fear it will be a long time before this neigh-
Jucurhood will be restored to a state of peace and tranquillity.”

We regret to learn, that a distinguished officer, who has
just returned to his country, after a long absence on a distant
expedition, has experienced since his return home a shock
more fatal to his happiness than could have been inflicted on
â–  him in the inhospitable regions from which he has just escaped.
We hear that a beautiful, lovely, and accomplished young la-
dy, who had exchanged with the gallant officer in question a
mutual pledge of unalterable attachment previous to his. em-
barking on his dangerous enterprize, and the promise of an im-
mediate and honourable union on his return, has, during his
absence, /jrgotten the pledge she bad given, and afforded rea-
son to believe that the gallant officer is no longer the favoured
object of her object of her affections. On the arrival of this
distinguished officer in London, he hastened, after the first dis-
charge of his public duty, and drove with an unaltered attach-
ment and. fond anxiety to the lady’s house, in the neighbour-
hood of Portland-place, to pay his first attention to the ob-
ject of his highest esteem, and receive her congratulations on
his safe return; but, to his surprise and sorrow; he found that
the house had been for sometime shut up, and that the family
had quitted London;- and upon further enquiry he learned
that some change had occurred with respect to the affections
of the chief object of his solicitude, which made it advisable
that he shouln endeavour to eradicate from his mind all recol-
lection of her plighted faith and influence over his heart. So
severe has been this shock to the brave officer, who could
smile at the horrors and dangers of a frigid zone, that he has
â– continued ever since this discovery in such an unhappy state,
as to seclude himself front the society, of all his friends, who
have in vain'endeavoured to console him on the unhappy oc-
casion, and entprtnjn some tears of serious consequences to his
health.—Courier.

We are gratified to learn that Captain Parry was much bet-
ter last night. He lost 20 ounces of blood yesterday, (22d
Oct.) by which he was greatly relieved, and his medical attend-
ants are now of opinion that a few days will place him entire-
ly out of danger.

Masters in the Navy.—By the plan, which has been sub-
mitted to the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, for the
promotion of practical navigation on board ships of war, and
the improvement of the condition of that very useful class of
officers, Masters in the Navy, the service would be enabled to
train and bring up her own navigating officers, without having
recourse to the merchant service for auxiliaries as masters;
another circumstance, strongly in favour of adopting a class of
navigating lieutenants, is the great experience they would gain
while commanding gun-brigs, cutters, and schooners on the
several-stations where they might be ordered, as well as a local
knowledge of the harbours, which would be their particular
rendezvous, and, to further the extent of nautical experience
still more, it might be deemed expedient to change the stati-
ons of all vessels commanded by navigating lieutenants once
in every two t ears. All those lieutenants who are now desir-
ous of holding commands, would, of necessity, qualify them-
selves as navigating lieutenants nor would it be requisite to
limit the number; as, admitting that there were twice the
number of navigating lieutenants, that there ships in the list of
the navy, it woidd not be detrimental to thfe service, because
those officers could neither do the duty of lieutenant of a
watch, or take upon them the charge and navigating of the ship.
On the contrary, it would rather have the effect of bringing
forward a great many skilful and judicious navigators, whose
abilities otherwise might never be brought into practice; and
it is generally allowed, that of all the theories of science that
of navigation is the least useful, without the experienced and
practical part.

Loading of Guns.—There is nothing more false than the
general notion entertained, that increase of charge will give
proportionate increase of distance: that a greater charge of
powder will expel the shot to a greater distance cannot be de-
nied, but not at all in proportion, as double the charge of
powder would only throw the shot one-sixth further, whilst
Hie danger of bursting is encreased in a tenfold degree. Those
who wish a greater than the customary distance, must do it by
keeping the weight of the charge, both of powder and shot-,
the same as usual, and increasing the size of the shot, by which
means it will be thrown much further, and more together than
the smaller shot. The weight of a double-barrelled gun is from
six pounds three quarters to seven and eight pounds, and will
carry two drachms of powder, and one ounce and a half of
shot; a single gun will weigh from five pounds and a half to
six pounds, and will bear a charge of two drachms and a half
of powder, and two ounces and a quarter of shot.

The great reduction in the price of whisky, which has taken
place within these few days, has been a matter of continued re-
joicing to dram drinkers and tipplers of every description ; and
intoxication has prevailed to a degree that says little in favour
of the temperance and self-denial of the lower classes. Lately
the cinder-women congregated at an early hour, and the mo-
ment thesgpjrit shops were opened, proceeded to try the qua-
lity of the twopenny—at which price a gill of whisky may now
be had—some is even sold so low as three-halfpence. Before
noon many of these worthies were seen prostrate m the water
ruts. In one place two of them quarrelled about the relative
qualities of the twopenny and three half-penny—both of which
they had taken care to taste, and from words proceeded to
blows. In the end they were both floored, and the police were
under the necessity of removing them as nuisances.—Not less
than a dozen of drunkards, who were unable to give any ac-
count of themselves, were taken to the Police Office on Satur-
day evening. All these were picked up in the Cowgate.—

POYAIS EMIGRANTS.

____________________________________ J

m)__________________________________. £

rd Mr. Prince, the Common-Councilman, who has kindly taken r
up the case of the unfortunate emigrants to Poyais, latey at-
,lie tended upon the Lord Mayor at the Mansion-house, with se-
to veral others of them, to request assistance for those who lay
re_ ill, and were unable to obtain relief. Five of them were placed I
tps at the bar. They were all but one, young men of the decent
es. and well-informed class of Scotch labourers.^ They had evi- 1
ish dently undergone extreme suffering and illness, as their ap- '
on pearance was ghastly and cadaverous. *

he The first who was called upon to state his case was a man
de named James Hastie. He said he had been brought up to the '
ial plough, and to agriculture generally, and that he had besides
â– P> learned the trade of a sawyer. He had been induced hy flat- I
en tering promises, which were made to him at the Poyais Land- a
>m office, at Edinburgh, to sell all he had, and leave Scotland with t
his wife and family for Poyais. They showed him thebeauti-’ k
14 ful picture of a town called San Josef, where they said there
were 2,000 inhabitants.

The Lord Mayor.—Well, did you find a town there ?
’ Hastie answered in the Scotch dialect.—There were two
he houses or huts found belonging to two persons who were cast
away. That was all the town found, but there no inhabitants. t
iis They had fled, for if they had stayed they would have been
starved.

:e,. The Lord Mayor inquired in what condition the settlers ar-
tes rived at the place ?

ng Hastie stated that they all arrived in excellent health, ex- s
on cepting one or two, but that they were much affected by the
on bad provisions. Near the place where they landed was a dan-, j
dp gerous bar which the boat could not get over, and they were ,
Ir> obliged to roll their casks on shore in the water. The casks
)e" were mostly open, and their flour, their meal, and barlev, were
irP all spoiled by the salt water. He thought that the badness of

' the provisions from this cause greatly promoted the destructive 0
disorders brought on by the “ hot, wet, and cold” climate. c
The Lord Mayor inquired of what nature they found the 1
ie land? _ ! t

|Sg Hastie said the “ land” they found was all sand; nothing J
but sands with underwood, of a nature which grew in those
,rk -arid lands. It was easy to clear away; but when it was clear- )
ice ed they found nothing but sand. The sea Shore of England, 1
)ly which was washed by the tide every 24 hours, would, in his ‘
id, opinion, be just as productive as the best of the ground he saw I
;h- there. They tried various sorts of Scotch seed in it; but none

of them made the slightest progress, and he was sure never 4
would. This was the description of land for about ten miles
ias that he saw; but he was informed that there was some good 5
mt land about 40 miles up the river amongst the savage folk: in-
ch deed, he saw some glorious timber. He described the greatest
on annoyance they encountered in the endeavours to work in the 1
3(h place, was from the venomous insects with which they were (
In- assailed and constantly tormented. The “ chigoes,” the sand-
1 a flies, and the mosquitoes, never left them free from pain; and t
m- they could not push through a bush of underwood but at the r
hazard of rousing a snake or a tiger cat. In every direction
ris they worked they found “ venomous beasts plenty.” (

His Lordship asked whether they- met any hostile treatment j
P. from the natives ? |

|!is Hastie said, that when thejr had been there about 14 days,
J?" the Mosquito King came down, attended by some of his savage
'subjects, and said, “ That unless they swore allegiance to him,
u.1' he would not permit them to stay there, and had upwards of (
’ ” 7,000 men whom he would bring down to massacre the whole j

of the settlers.” This King had been brought up at Jamaica,
and understood English well. He was said to be fond of rum,
1 X and the people said that Sir Gregor Maegregor, once, when
,e his Majesty was in good humour from the rum, got from him |
’Vs a grant of 30 miles of Poyais land. But Hastie declared, he (

* .e heard his Majesty say, he did not hold thegrant to be good, and j
2" and that if he had known who and what Sir Gregor was, as

well as he now knew him, the grant never should have been

* made. Never more would he have Sir Gregor’s people in his

as dominions. The subjects of his Majesty, when they heard Sir |
l,e’ Gregor’s name mentioned, drew their hands across their throats, |
10 cried “Yaw, Xaw,” and looked quite “fashed” angry.

She Lord Mayor.—And what has become of Sir Gregor ,
1 Maegregor ? Did you soe anything of him ? (

Hastie said that Sir Gregor’s agent represented that he Was
' j in Paris. Hastie here pressed his own case upon his Lordship,
nd He had been engaged to go out by Sir Gregor himself as one â– 
' of his labourers at 451. a-year, had lost all his savings; two of
his “ bairns” had been carried off’ by the fever, and his wife
now lay dangerously ill with the fever, and his remaining bairns
were unwell. The fever and the ague were upon .himself even
the now while he was speaking to his Lordship, and he had no
ind bread, and was quite destitute. * ,

°f The Lord Mayor gave him an immediate order for his and ,
. to his family’s reception in St. Thomas’ Hospital.
inS The next case was that of a lad named James Burgess, who
;rs > said that his father was a boat builder, and with his mother
1 of and four children went out by the persuasions of Sir Grdgor
ain Maegregor to Poyais. Witness’ father and mother sunk un-
the Jef the climate, ane died of the fever on their way home, and
caf lie (the boy) was now left an orphan with his three sisters,
ilar The next was a man W]TO had formally been .in the service
nc.e of the Duke of Argyle. He was induced to embark his savings
at,_ and go out with his wife and family. He had lost his wife,
ape and returned in the utmost Wretchedness.

‘ " The Lord Mayor thought it unnecessary to enquire further
' into the cases. He asked a few general questions, and all the
tl_ie poor creatures concurred in the account cf the expedition,
and of the arts used by the promoters of the scheme to entrap
them, They expressed their regret that they had not return?
P ed sooner, as, a little before they arrived, two vessels full of
emigrants had started for the same place, and doubtless would
- meet with the same, or perhaps a worse fate. One of those
os” vessels, called the Albion, had started a few wrecks since from
the river, and besides natives of England, had on board some
^at Lascars,, and others of a “saleable colour,” who, it was stated
inj had been induced to go out as a “body guard” for the Go-
vernor of Poyais. The other vessel, it was said was called the
Scheme.

the The Lord Mayor observed, “I understand they are negoci-
lve. ating another Poyais loan. Does any one know what security
! they offer ?’j

”e'„ A gentleman replied, “ the security of a grant of this sandy
ot land made by a drunken chief, who now denies its validity.”
ast The Lord Mayor said he never heard of a more complete
°®e humbug, and expressed his surprise at its success, which was
by amazing.

iotr ° • •

The settlers said, that supposing the climate in the interior
lan to adapted to British constitutions, ane the land was good,
Jin the settlers could only exist in a strong force and combined
to act, as they would have to encounter the hostility of the ,

* op Mosquitos, a warlike tribe, or the still more powerful enmity .
’ to t'ie Spaniards, and that it would be in vain to attempt to
lalf attemPt to conciliate the good-will of .both powers,

Mr Prince said the misery of the orphans and the sick who
had landed was extreme. He had witnessed it. Some hu-
"re_ mane person had suggested a subscription for their relief, and
md he niost heartily concurred in the proposal.

Jur The Lord Mayor agreed that the case was highly deserving
. of the beneficent exertions of the public, and put his name at
the head of the subscriptions.

Mr Prince, his brother, Messrs. Fry and Chapman, also sub-
o‘w scribed, and she house of Fry and Chapman expressed their
3re readiness to receive subscriptions. Mrs Fry is to enquire in-
ter to state of the orphan females.

ive His Lordship soon after received a verbal communication
jch from Mr Sheriff Lawrie, who said the Scottish Hospital had
to in cansequence of the statement in the papers on Saturday,
ere instructed him to offer a free passage home to the whole of
ess the survivors, who had no occasion to apply to any parish but
ac_ might claim the aid of their countrymen for that purpose,
ur- The Lord Mayor said that the liberal offer would be joyfiil-
.— ly accepted; but the subscription for the orphan and the sick
must not be prejudiced by it.

The Governor of Barbados having received from the Society
for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures, and Commerce, i
an account of the Premiums offered by that Society, has di-
rected the following to be published:—

Kali for Barilli.

To the person who shall have cultivated, in the Bahama .
Islands, or any other part of His Majesty’s dominions in the j
West Indies, or in any other British Plantation, in the year ;
1823, the greatest quantity of land, not less than two acres, (
with a Kali equal to the Spanish Kali, for the purpose of j
making Barilla—The Gold Medal, or Thirty Guineas. (

For the next greatest quantity, not less than one acre— <
The Silver Medal, or Fifteen Guineas. i

Certificates signed by the Governor or Commander in ,
Chief for the time being, of the quantity of land so cultivated, j
and of the state of the plants at the time of signing such cer- ,
tificates, to be delivered to the Society, with samples of the -
kali, on or before the second Tuesday in February, 1824. j

The same premiums, on similar conditions, will be given ]
for Barilla grown in 1824. ]

Destroying the Insect commonly called the Borer.

To the person who shall communicate to the Society an j
effectual method of destroying the insect commonly called
the Borer, which is so destructive to the sugar-canes in the n
West India Islands—the Gold Medal, or Fifty Guineas.

The discovery to be ascertained by satisfactory certificates, j
uqder the hand and. seal of the Governor or Commander in •
Chief for the time being, and of some other respectable per-
sons, inhabitants of the Islands (or other place) in which the ‘
remedy has been successfully applied; such certificates to be
delivered to the Society on or before the first Tuesday in Fe-
bruaey, 1824.

Substitute for Hemp.

To the person who; in the years 1823 or 1824, shall raise ;
at the Cape of Good Hope, in New South Wales, or in any
of the British Colonies, and import, a substitut® for Hemp, ,
not less than two tons) equally cheap, durable, and applicable <
to all the purposes for which hemp is now used—the Gold *
Medal, or Fifty Guineas. s

A. quantity of the substitute, not less than 20 lbs. together .
with the proper certificates from the Governor, Commander
in Chief) or Secretary, of the Colony in which 'the same has ;
been raised, to be produced to the Society on or before the .
last Tuesday in February, 1824. ,

The Society particularly direct the attention of the Public
tc> the Phormium tenax, or New Zealand Flax. ’ i

N. B.—The premiums (above-stated) are all extended one
year farther, on similar conditions.

Coacoa-nut Oil. <

To the person who shall,, in the year 1824, import thd
largest quantity of Cocoa-nut oil, not less than fifty tons, and
of the best quality—the Gold Medal, or Thirty Guineas.

Proper certificates, with the bills of lading, and samples of 1
the oil, to be produced to the Society on or before the last 1
Tuesday in February, 1825. 1

This premium is proposed particularly with a view to en-
courage the use of Cocoa-nut oil in the making of gas for the
purpose of illumination, such gas having been found much su-
perior to the gases commonly in use.

Annatto.

To the person who, in the year 1823, shall import into the
port of London, from any part of the British Settlements in
the East Indies, the greatest quantity of Annatto equal to that
imported from Spanish America, not less than one hundred
weight—the Gold Medal.

A quantity of the Annatto, not less than ten pounds weight,
to be produced to the Society, with proper certificates, signed
by the Governor or Secretary of the respective Settlement,
that the Annatto is the produce of such Settlement, on or
before the last Tuesday in February, 1824.

Diminution of Human Labour in the Cultivation of Sugar.

To the person who, previous to the 1st January, 1825, shall
present to the Society a satisfactory account (founded on ex-
perience) of the most advantageous mode of diminishing the
lsMouf.of persons employed in the cultivation of sugar, cotton,
aha coffee, in the West Indian Colonies, by the substitution
of agi’icultural machinery, or by the use of cattle—the Gold
Medal, or Fifty Guineas.

AMATEUR THEATRICALS.

Suppose us, now, at Mrs. Flourish’s,—chairs 'and sofas, all
crowded; the ceremonies of tea and coffee quite finished, and
the eyes and ears of the visitants all expanded for the promised
display. “ Now, my dear Diggory,” said the young gentleman’s
doting mamma, “ make your best bow to the company, my love,
and let Doctor Tadpole hear you speak ‘ the Newcastle Apo-
thecary,’ I always likes my Diggory to say summat happlica-
ble.”—“ Then suppose, madam,” replied the Doctor, “ sup-
pose the young gentleman recites Gay’s fable of ‘ The Old Hen
and the Cock ! ”—“ Deary me, Doctor, he shall larn that next,
after he has got ‘ Giniblett' and ‘Mounseer Tonstrn? and
‘ Bucks have at you all I and ‘ Young Norval-1 and ‘ OldTowler?
and ‘ All the World's a Stage,' and ——” “Held, hold, my
dear madam 1 why there’s enough for the next nine months
already ;■—why, you’d multiply the ten parts of speech by forty,
arid let us have all of them !”—“Come then, Diggory, my
man, I’ll ring the bell, and snuff’the candles, and you shall give
us that there one first, howsomever; and we’ll have t’others
afterwards,”—The Doctor interfered no farther; the compa-
ny adjusted themselves in proper order, and sat in rueful ex-
pectation of the coming pleasure.

I iSust here premise, that Master Flourish’s memory, al-
though tolerably tenacious as to the number of it’s subjects,
was rather variable as to the method of detailing them; thus
making a kind of dramatic cross reading, which sometimes
marred the solemn effect of his tragedy. At length, therefore,
after blacking his face, clearing his throat, and pulling up his
trowsers^he thus began:—

“ I do remember an apothecary,
And in his needy shop a tortoise hung,
A halligator stufT’d ■—

A member of this Esculapian line
Lived at Newcastle-upon-Tyne,
His name was Bolus !

My poverty, but not my will consents,
When taken—To be well shaken !
A beggarly account of empty boxes,
Calling aloud—What, ho J' Apothecary!”

During this very extraordinary exhibition, the good old lady
winked, nodded, and prompted, but all to no purpose. The
fact was, Master Diggory’s speeches were literally at his fingers’
ends, as, being accustomed to work them into his head, by
scratching himself with a particular finger, the same manoeuvre
was always to be performed at the recital, and the application
of a wrong digit, invariably introduced a wrong passage.—
“ Why, Diggory, my love !” at length, exclaimed his perturbed
mamma,—“ you were sadly out, my dear J Now do try again,
chuck, andt let the company hear Gimlet’s sillyliquus, about
about - Toby,”—Mister Flourish, junior, accordingly again
hah’dandhemm’d; and, after the other usual evolutions, thus
broke out :—

“ Toby, or not Toby,—.that there's the question ?

Whether;—my name is Norval

On the Grampion hills,—My father feeds his
Pigs,—no, sheep,—his flocks—flocks of
Pigeons, that flesh is heir to.

To die, to sleep, a horse ! a horse !—.

My kingdom for a horse !

Aye, there’s the rub 1 for, for, for,—

Heaven soon granted what my sire denied, yon moon !

Here young hopeful concluded; most of the company ex-
pressed themselves perfectly satisfied, and even Doctor Tad-
pole was convinced, that in some cases, a single dose is one too
many.—“ Master Flourish’s memory, madam,” quoth the Doc-
tor, “ puts me in mind of a most excellent 6tory of a very old

friend of mine, and z/«w is thi. ;—My old friend, Admiral—A -
rniral—bless my soul'!—Admiral—pshaw 1—1 never can r-col-
lect his name, but that’s of no consequence; he fought a. t\e

as long as they lived after warns 1—and 1 never told'the story
to any body, who didn’t say that it was the most iuterestmg
narrative that they ever heard in the wole course of their
lives!”-----

Suppose, that we introduce you to my old friend Manager
Varnish, of strolling notoriety, collecting a new company di
Barn-door Comedians to provincialize, alias to vagabondize*
over his stage of six heal boards, and saw-dust in the boxes.—
Behold him at his morning Levee, then—bursting with import-
ance, and swelling “like a shirt bleaching in a high wind1”—
“A hem! Timothy!—this is my Court of Apoilo, my morn-
ing nuisance, my—why Timothy, I say!—Oh! here you come
sir, crawling in, like the half-price on a rainy evening !—Well,
sir, who waits?—Any body wanting the Manager?”

“Oh, yes! lots oi them, sir; there’s a one-armed man en-
quires if you want another hand,—a wooden-legged gentlemau
to play the Lame Lover,—a real blackamoor tor Othello, four
Romeos, one Harlequin, three Fools, and a French marquess
to come out in Richard.

“All waiting now, eh Timothy?”—“Yes,sir.”—“Then tell
the one-armed man to take to his heels, and the wooden-leg-
ged gentiemail to /jop the twig, and skip to another branch.—
Harlequin and the Romeos may keep the Fools company; and
send me up the Blackampor and the French Gentleman, one
at a time.

The man of colour having made his entre, after much grin-
ning and gesticulation, thus addressed the astonished Manager,
—“You massa Jonkoo man? keep play-house, shew fine tra-
gedy.” ’

“Massa Jonkoo man!—why—Oh ! that’s blacky language
for an acting manager, I suppose!—1 am, sir, at you service,
you wish to Appear in Othello, 1 understand, and, to do ye u
justice, you will, look the part certainly.”—“Iss, inaasa, blacky
ali through, through; no come off) when hug! Now me show
how act niassa, Gtheily peech to him father-in-law.”

“What with that cursed twang, fellow?—Do you imaging
that the Noble Moor spoke after that fashion ?—however, e’en
let’s have it.” Upon which Chingaree assumed what might
be an elegant attitude among his native tribes, and thus cum-,
menced the famous oration to the Venetian Senate,

“ Most potented sir reverences!

My very good massas! dat I take away

Old buckra man him daughter,

It all true, true, no lie was;

Den she marry, I make her my Chumchum

Dat all I do, cause I do no more was!”

The Manager could listen no longer,—“ Well, sir, if Othello
did harangue in that fashion, he might Well say—‘ Rude am 1
in speech!’—‘Oh! the more angel he, and you the blacker
devil!’ You may begone fellow, for much as tue public like
novelty, they never could bear your abominable Chumchum,
and the greatest favour you can do me, is to make your exit
as fast as possible.” Othello having followed the Manager’s
advice, was very speedily succeeded by the French gentleman,
whose ambition was to enact Richard, Duke of Glo'ster.—
“Aha! Sare, Je suis, I am come to surprise you,—1 shall as-
tonish the town, ma foi!—De play has never been persone,—
it was never performe, as I shall perform it,—Mais, vous -etes
silent,—to all dis you say nothing 1”

“ Then I will say that I shall be extremely happy to have a.
specimen, Monsieur. 1”

“ Ecoutez vpus, shut your mout, listen and you shall hear.

We regret to learn that the wife of General Riego, as also a sis-
ter and brother of the General, are now residing in humble lodgings
in the Vicinity of the City Road, in circumstances' far from com-
fortable. What are the Spanish Committee doing with their money,
when such neap connections of the unfortunate Hero of the Con-
stitutional cause are thus neglected ? And at such a moment as
the present, when the mental angiiish they must feel, inconsequence
of the uncertain fate of their relative, stands so much in need of
alleviation ?—Morning Post.

To test the^purity cf flour, grasp a handful briskly, and
squeeze it a half a minute; if genuine, it will preserve the form
of the cavity of the hand, even although rudely placed on a
table. If adulterated, on the contrary, it will almost immedi-
ately fall down. Flour mixed with whitening is the most ad-
hesive of adulterated flours, though it soon gives way, but if
the adultering ingredient be ground stones, bones, gypsum, or
wood-ashes, it tumbles down in an instant.

Colonist Office, Half-pqst Five, r. n.

We have received, by the Latona, just arrived from London,
a paper of the 25th October. It is provokingly silent on West
India affairs. The 27th Regiment of Foot, however, has been
ordered, it appears to the Head Quarters of this Station, in
addition to the 93rd.—The following extracts concerns the
King of Spain, not for having talked, bqt walked Spanish.—
He has been making decrees -

“ The fiqst of these decrees grants a general amnesty, but in the
Neapolitan manner, a great number of inuividqals, who have acted
a prominent part in the Constitutional Government, being outlaw-
ed, and many others condemned to exile, or to punishments more
or less severe. Among the former are the leaders of the insurrec-
tion in the Isle of Leon, in 1820; and the violent deputies and
chiefs. Riego, therefore, would be sacrificed.

A second decree orders the pacification of all the civil authorities, .
and the suppression of :he Constitutional army ; no officer shall be
admitted into the Royal army, till he shall have purified himself
(puri ficado), in one of the councils of vrar, which shall be formed
for the purpose.

“ A third decree expels from the Spanish dominions all foreign-
ers, of whatever nation they may be, who have taken part in the re-
volution, or supported or served the cause of the-revolutionists.

“ A fourth decree convokes the ancient Cortes of tfie Kingdom,
and fixes the mode of election.

“ A fifth gives splendid recompenses to the French Generals;—•
but it is said, that the Prince has referred these recompenses to Pa -
ris.

“ The publication of these decrees is deferred, in expectation of
receiving every moment the answer of the Constitutional Chmfe
who have not yet submitted.”

ADVICE TO THE KING OF SPAIN,

On his Working a Petticoat to the Virgin Mary.

BY THE LATE DB J. WALCOT, OLIM PETER PINDAR, ESQUIRE.

Great King, the Newspapers declare,
Which puts me quite on the broad stare,
(Though Newspapers from truth too often vary),
That you, dread Sir, of needle note,
Have work’d a pious petticoat,

A hallow’d off’ring to the Virgin Mary.

Why tr:ck your Lady out so fine ?
She never once went forth to dine,
Nor play or opera ever deign’d to grace ;

She never gave a rout,

Not e’en poor tea, and then turn out,

Nor at the bulk-feast shew’d her holy face.

Then heed the Bard :—Your state maintain,
Nor thus expose yourself again
A standing jest for every saucy railer;

Bid Superstition’s flame expire—
Fling all your needles in the fire—
Give King-craft up—and turn an honest tailor.

*,* The humourous Jeu d’Eprii of the facetious Peter Pin- I
Bar, who is without a rival in his original style of poetry, may be I
properly revived at the present moment, when the Pious Ferdi-
nand has shewn himself to !>e utterly destitute of every quality re- I
quisite to adorn the Royal character, or do credit to human nature, I
jt is not in the old Bard’s printed works.

HOHENLOHE MIRACLES.

Air— “ Green grow the Rushes, 0."

There’s nought but wonder through the land,
In every hour that passes O

When Lasses are, with sleight of hand,

Restored by Priests and Masses O ! I

The Host doth make the cripple leap,
The Post doth make the dumby speak—
And all make bawling newsmen shriek,

“ Miracles agoing, O.”

Chorus.

Hey I ho ! Hohenlohe 1 I

There’s not a day that passes, O, I

But by a Mass, you cure a lass,
And set her tongue a-going, O !

’Tis only for the Romish Church
That wonders are a-flying O;

The Protestants are in the lurch, I

Or Papists are a-lying, O. I

'The Priests are working very hard

. For all the ailing Misses O— |

And these will shew their true regards,

By holy Bamberg kisses O.

Hey ! ho ! Hohenlohe, &c. I

We do not mean a sensual kiss,

• For Nuns and Monks know none such O—

But such a holy mystic bliss I

. As might be shared by Hohenlohe. I

Hohenlohe, that gallant Prince, I

Who, high and low, takes pain to please, I .

And never, at a pinch, will wince, I

To give a pious Lady ease. f .1-

Hey I ho ! Hohenlohe, &c.

To make a girl freely talk

Has ne’er been deemed a wonder O !

The wonder would be should she balk

'rhe clack your head would dunder O. I

But though fair maids to bed will take

To please, themselves or others O— I ‘

The same they’d do, my life I’ll stake. I

If they were wives or mothers, O !

Hey! ho ! Hohenlohe, &c. I -

The Royal Bamberg Accouchier

So busy is in Erin’s Isle,

That, through his miracles, I fear I

Will many a pretty cherub smile ; I 4

But “ Rouan Matrons be of cheer,” I j

The sins of all your lasses, O! I tj-

Our handsome Priests, and Hohenlohe, I w

Will wipe away with Masses O.

Hey > ho • Hohenlohe, &c. I I

Now let all pious Christians pray

For those deluded people O, I p

Who humbug lasses with their Masses I p

- In Church without a steeple O.

May crucifix, and bag of tricks, I

And darkness banish from our land—

And, in their place) may faith, with grace,

'Stop Miracles and . slight of hand. I -

Hey! ho! Hohenlohe! &c. I

THE PARTING. 1

____ I B

I E

Since, Mary, we are doom’d to part,

Since I must tear you from my heart, I

That faithful heart, which will I fear)

Too long your lovely image bear.

A moment your attention lend,
And hear the counsels of a friend.

When first I saw those beamy eyas, I jy

When first I saw those blushes rise, I jn

When first I saw those ringlets break I ]j0

In jetty beauty on your neck:

V hen first I heard your lips dispense
The strain of modest eloquence,
Oh, how I wish’d (bat I could move
The beauteous charming maid to love;

v And when you heard me tell my flame, I «

And when you said you felt the same, I

. And when possess’d of channs like thine, I

No happiness could equal mine.

But soon the gaudy dream was o’er, I

The painted phantom was no more; I sk<

And in the place of virtue’s charms, I S0£

f Deceit and folly filled my arms. I

What tortures did my bosom move, I ro<

What pangs of disappointed love, I mc

When to my hopes I bade adieu, I mc

And turn’d away from love and you. 4 I Mi

From love said I,—how vain the boast, I tr*.’

Tho’ by the foulest mischief crost; I

My coward heart still pants for you, ! I Pe

And knows not how to say Adieu. I Ur

Thus the poor moth around the light, I wr

Though scorch’d its wings, renews its fight, I ™e

Nor wounded from the foe retires, I lnfi

But in the very flame expires. I
