It is now well understo.Hl, that the Bill of last session will undergo some alterations ; but what iho.sc will be, is at I'ltWMit unknown. We observe, with re>,'nt,that numenms fires have occurnil kiely in KingHoii, Jamaica, which are suppusi-d to be iIhj work of incendiaries ; and, ahhouL'h tlaMayor had offered a reward of £l(KX) for information to convict the oHendr, nothinir had transpirel that cmhl in any way bad to the discovery of the |M'rp'trdtors of thesw atrocitis. Several iM-rwms have bi^-n taken up on suspicion, but dischati^oila^ain for the want of evidence againstthem. We are not surprised at these outnicros — more jmrticularly wlH-n commitled in Jamaica—as they are only a pju-t of the dnadful conaequeMM to Inexjjected fn)ni the evil advice ofour blood-thirsiy and impl.o .l.le •neniies.who have lon-j Wm MMiirai^vd to make their debut in that Island, in the lucrative trade of Cant and !lyjM>crisy,and wlnre the most mischievous part of the calumnies and mi^repres^nlations • 'iii>t the Colonies are preparerrv to say, an|><.werful from the situations they hold in tin.

The following Ls the Extract : I have just ben informed at the Colonial Office, that a letter is about to be sent to me, in reply to mine to Lord (nxlerich, respectiiiff the American brig Comet, ami cargo of Slaves, wherein it is stated, that as it apjH-ars frora a despatch from His ExceUency tbe (iovernor, be}u-ing date the lnh March last, that the said Slaves are for the most part rmployrd,^.*:. that Lord (iodetich cannot recommend a compliance with your wishes res|M'ctin(f their removal, so long as they conduct llienis* Ives well, and are not a public burthen. *' The letter was onlf read to me, and I cannot ph'dge mys laiiire of agitating topics that demand immediate inquiry and decision, there is not one ujwn which more passion has boen excited, or concernintr which more delusion and prejudice exist. TlM-re ap|Mar to us to Imthree mixiifications of opinion asto the jxdicy profxr to be pursued towards the slaves and their masters. In the first jilace, the |>lantrs ap|M'al to thejustice of the government, who, under certain pledges of protection, they say, ori finally induced them to vest their property in colonial speculation. They rpT. Eq.. of Jamaica, arrived at NewYork on the Ai Jnne, in the packet ship Hamubal, from London. Would be a literal violauon of honour, and a dinct act of dishonesty. In the second place, the majority ofthinkinjr men who have visited the West Intlies, and, unconnected with the planters, have dispassionately examined tlie practical o}M'ri.tion of the existing system, express themselves hesitatintrly about the propositi cliaiMjes. Thev are in faaddressed to Karl Gmev, the first of which will appear i^ the Atlah of nvM week. To this important inquiry, con. ducted with tenqi^, talent, and in good taste, we earnestly recommend tiie attention of our readers. Tliey will find, perhaps fr the first time, the case of the negro candidly discussed in a public journal. We believe tlie pubU ration of thes*' pajMTs will do good. At all events, it j^ • alculated to dispel much mistaken intemperance on a subject in which the greatest merit exhibited by yomts people has been that of l>eing right by accident. m .^—1-1.1. . 1.1 .,i.. ..

Truth must lie somewhere amidst this conflict of statenunlsaiid opinions; and it can only be reached by a calm analysis of the \li(de (jiiestion, grounded upon a comphte knowh'dL'e of all its hearinirs.

National Expemditube, and Colowial RErriiE.vTATION. rema"rf 'IT ^l*^ "^ ^"'l ^'^'''^ ^'^^ '^ Colonies, one remark wdl strike our readers ; that these cohmies must b^ most wretch..Uv manaM if they cannot afford to pay their own judge, and bw ofiic^rs. It seems most absuH to cry them up as the great stay and refuge of England, (and we cmditi:;" ""'*'' ^'^^"^ ^"^ whilst they ^Amt;:;: But our present purpoj is ,o consider a much more important question,-, question which has frequently b^en brought before the public on many occasions, but never tjsfactonly explained or discus^ned. It is simp y this -wb^I ther or not these Colonies oupht not to have^repre^mariv^; m Parliament, and whether the present criL ^'no' afn.rd a fit opportunity of givin, them such representa ives It has been strongly argued that, as the population of tl^ British dependencies, including India, exceeds that of tt mother country, — and as th. w..al.k J^a of many nf thJri . *"*^ "*'"^ importance i 01 many of the Colonies mark them out as the cradle of i future empires, it .rould be the manifest p^l cy a^d dot' of Great Britain to attach them bya cIommVnrZ!" i to give them, by representation, a' :h:rT:^ Z7nZr:t ul'T^^'i^^^^^ ^y ^^ -tinctLTth Z r rnov> Whose property was invested in our settlements tatK>n which they have hitherto anjoyed. It i. not to he diaaembtcd but that tht new Reform Bill strikes a hard Uow upon this descriptijn of members of Parliament r^ presenting colonial intereata. They will, by the natural consequences of this political exclusion, be more alienated from us than they are iior inclined to be, and every Hay become more indispoaed to hear the yoke of the parent sute. An opportunity now oflers of giving them a direct representation. It may be carried into eflfect simply by receding from that {>art of the reform plan which was never popular, — we mean that part which propose* to reduce the number of oOr representatives in Parliament. It is known that Lord Grey does not obstinately persist in the reduction of the members of Parliament. It never was a favourite measure with the people. W'hy not, then, kten up the number of our rei>reeniatives in llie House of Commons to tiieir ancient amount, — distributing a certain portion, say fiftec^n or twenty, amongst our Colonies and foreign dependencies 1 The mode, and the term of their election, might easily be arranged. If the principle were once conceded, the policy of it would be obvious. Our Colonists, or those British owners arul merchants whose property is largely en^iiged abroad (for we are not speaking of the native born colonists only), must desire, like other men, to have some share in the management of public afTairs, chiefly on account of the importance which it would givetfiem. Upon tiie power which the greater part f the leading nun, the aalural aristocracy of eveiy country, have of preserving or deluririing their respective impurtance, depend the stability and duration of every system of free government. In the attacks which these leading men are continually making upon one another, and in tle defence oi iheir own poAer and station, consists the whole play of donwatic faction and ambition. It is but natural that tli leadir.gmen possessed of colonial property and influence should be actuated by similar motives of ambition. Th y feel, or imagine, tliat they slril be excluded fi-om Parliament by the extinctiv can no longer expect to see them seated in a reformed Parliament, their pride will be hurt, and their a/Teclions tveakened ; and, like other ambitious ami high spirited men they will ratlier choose to throw off the yoke, and draw the sword in defence of their own importance, than live in a conneiion with the mother country, which is injurious, unequal, apd disparaging. Great Britain , perhaps, since ti.e world began, the only state which, as it extended its empin-, has only increased Its expenses with Roman Republic, the allies of Rome, who had borne the principal burthen of defending the state, and extendiiifj the* bt)undarie8 of the empire demanded to be admitted to all the privileges of Roman 'cititens. Upon being refused, the Social war broke out ; and during the course of that war Rome granted those privileges to the greater part of them, one by one, and in proportion as they detached themselves f'rom the ceneral confederacy. Why should not Enj^land do by choice what Rome was compelled to do by force? It is a fimdaraental maxim of our policy, since theAmerican war thai there can be no taxation without repre-se-ntation. Our Colonies therefore must always be an incumbrance to us whilst they remam unrepresented. We shall always be taxed with the enormous expenses of their civil and military establishments, until we pot them in an equal condition', and give them equal political privileges with the rest of our empire, Ljet them be adroitte-d to the same privileges, and tbey could no more object to a tax for paying their judge. aid governors, thai, the inhabitants of a county could object to a county rate for thehuildinc of their bridges and the maintaining of their pnsons. Why should not Great Bntain aMow to each Coh.ny such a numbe-r of representatives as suited the proportion of what it contributed to the public revenue of th^.mpire.-in consideration of its being "^r:;?' r. !/": !:.^^^ -^ ^^^ -^' -. compensation, J VL, I-^IVo, TI.

Though the Roman constitution was netcessarily ruined by the union of Rome with the allied states of Italy, there is not the least probability that the British conMi'tutioi would be hurt by the union of Great Britain with her Colonies. Tliat C4>niitution, on the contrary, would bo completed by it, and seems to be imperfect wiilwut it. 1 lie assembly which deliUrales arid decides concerning the affairs of every part of the empire, in order to be perfectly informed. oight certainly to have representatives from every part of it. ^ That this union, however, could be easily effectuated, or that difficulties, and great difficulties, might not occur in the execution, is undoubted. We have heard of none however, which appear insumjountable. The principar perhaps, arise not from the nature of things, but from the prejudices and opinions of the people both on tliis and on the other side of the Atlantic. But if Lord Grey and the Ministers shall yield to the reasonable desires of Parliament, and to the natural wishea of the people, in keeping up the present number of tlie members of the Houseof Commons, an opportunity would be imwKjdiately afforded (and the hewn will, we are sure be roost acceptable) of aelmitting colonial property to iu just share of represemtation, and to its due and salutary i weight in a reformer! ParliameoU *] Supposing that the sixty-two members, intended to bo struck off, should be retaineel upon a revision of the Re Aim Bill, would it not be an admirable measure of policy to allot a certain portion of them to our Colonies I It would greatly tend to conciliate tlie mercantile and shipping intere^sts of the country, and would strengthen the popularity of tla Bill anaongst all those persons whose fortunes are bound up with tlie trade and commerce of the Empire. /Vom the IjondoH Atia*.
