I ^ Tlie sdimmfr Favourite, Capfsiin Clarke, arrived liere 3r#lerrs to have b'en in the private letter from Havre, iIm* i3ih f Octofxr, which we insertod in our last numfwr. The majwiiy 4in Lird Fbringlon's motion in the House of C'fmmons, (HI Monday evening, the 10th, was 14J instead of 140. ^*j (: :M His F%..llency the (rovernor directed extracts from certain despatclies, received from the Colonial office, by llto middle S, ,tenibr packet, to be publishe.tin{/ pa|'r, were devoted to se jer*>ns ; No. S— a copy of the IwtitiontX the fiee persons of colour, residing in the IsUnd of New Proviiience, with a letter from the public Secretary, similar to that accompanying No. 2.

This I. certainly no 'more tlwin we ntici,tel from Mis Majesty's Colonial S^H-retary ; but we still assert, •nd wHl maintain our point, tit,m, „one but' im*r oflbno^ are cognizable in this Court, His Majesty's prwofative does not extend to it. We are sup,K>rted by tlie fsct, that since the pow.-r of trying slavi^ for capital ortincei was taken from this Court, neitlu^r Governor Grant nor Mr. Pri,lent Munnings. ever attempted to in•erfere with one of hs sentwces. as the clause of the lu giving such power to the Commander-in-Chief was obliu-ralml with tiK. one renting to cKpiul otfences • .„d we are also supjmrted by the re,H>rt of tinCommissiorer. of legal enquiry, who were gentlemen quite competent to jmlgeol the extent of the King's prerogative.-wbich. tale., Ihi there is no apjHal Jrum this Court-neither are the sentences •ubj.H^t to revision by the Executive ; and wc belK..ve, recommends that a chiie should be insert.HJ in the art. ci^M., that jH>wer to tin, Governor or Commander-in( hH L Crrnin it ia, tin. re,>ort complains of this deficiency. and rec.>mnends ttiat it should be amended.

Let tlMtm but do this, aiiM their complaints must meet with attention; and the objert so eagurly sought for, and ardently wished by all, nHiiioly — tlic removal o( the pie!>ciit Governor — must take place. We shall not encroach ufwn the part of our sheet devoteil to ourselves, nor exhaust the )>atience of our readers, by exposing tlie f^lschootJs and misrepresentations with which tlie iminoriul of th? twenty seven, tj'ems ; but sliall leave the autliors of them to the sting of their own guilty consciences, and to view with what feelings they may, the lasting monument to llieir dishonour and shanH>, which tliey have raised.

During tiK' operation of castigation, the apprentice made, in his own defence, a very loud use cf his lung-so much so, as to draw Mr. John Walker, Ordnance StorekeejK-r, to the pot, who immeliately directed a constable in attendance lo take both McNaughton and apprentice to gaol ; and it' IS much to I* regretted that he (McN.) refused to go, a. he would lve bcM^'n affordcxl an op,H,rtunity of punishing legally, a ,taut advocate of Sir J.

I liavo been informed, that a geatlenien, whose signature is to it, was asked what was ttie purport of liie iffiuaining part of this lying pt^ition] His answer promptly was" I do not know, for 1 never read it." 1 firmly believe, that if the majitriiy of the persons who signed it, were also asked the same questiun, and would as honestly answer as the gentleman above uienu()ned tliat the same reply would be given. It will l>e su()erHuous in me, Mr. Editor, to make any elaborate remarks on this counter petition : a discerning and intelligent community will properly appreciate it?i merits, and will determine most justly, si to the opinions that ought to be entertained of the twenty seven individuals who figure away at the bottom. I wdl, nevertheless, take the litierty of introducing to the world (wo require no furtlier knowh>dge of tliem) these conspicuous characters. The number who have signed, is twenty seven. — Fourteen are persons either holding appointments, pensions, or in the employment of (•overnment. Another is an old, infirm, blind man, and in his dotage ; tlie piety and filial duty oi whose son (holding not only an sppoiiitnient unler the Crown, but tlie Colonial appointUMnt also of clerk lo the Commissioners of Correspondef^iro,) signed, as 1 have heard, eitlier his name for him, or guided his hand.

Another has Iwen lately appointed preacher and teacher lo the chosen favourites of our Commander-in-Chief and the saints tll sable inhabitants of the dek^clable village of Carmlchatd. I now sincerely regret to Lriti;: into obs<'rvalion, an old and a respectable inhabitant of these islands — a gentleman fr wluun I entertain a sincere regard — and into whose hands, from some new contemplated arranL'emenis, tlie reins of this (toverniHent may one day lall — I should rejoice if it wero lo-moirow. 1 have ''carcely 4 doubt, that when this petition shall present itself b'fore him, in his present domestic retirement, that he will | sincerely regret he over saw it ; and I cannot but believe, frtmi the opinions he has frequently a u! publicly expresiud, respecting thr? measures of ow /vry erir^Uent iiovemw^ that some favoOrable up{ioi tunity b^au aougbt ^, to take an advantage of him. — Here twiare ninetCMn out of the twenty seven, absolutely koldinf situations^ or m tkg paif of the (worernment.

It had been said that tlie refiners had calculatud u{on tlie continuance of this measure ; but it was well known that it was at first hut an ex(>eriuient, aid tlmt it had failed. The refiners were aware of this, and ihertfonj had sufficient notice. He was satisfied that the Right Hon. (iontleman (Mr. P. Thompson) would feel tlie responsibility attaching to His Majesty's (iovernment, in a measure of "this description, of relying on the repri'sentatiuns received from the refiners of Liverpool in opposition to the reprjteniations of the West liidid interest, and of saying ibat the only pt^rsons capable e;' giving information to His Majesty's Ministers were the refiners, who had a direct interest in'the (juestion, making as they diii large profits from tie measure. With re|)ect to the argument, that au injury could be done by the slight tpiantity of foreign sugar iin(>orted, he begged to remind the House of Mr. Hu.skiison's remark res|)ecting the small quantity of Mauritius sugar that could be produced, and to ask them to look at the quantity now imported. Wtiea ofiwj the door of penaisned, it wa, difficult to say to what extent the privileges might not be carried. When the difficulties of tlie West India proprietors were considered, and when ruin looked them in the face, was this a policy whichought to be pursued towards an interest to relieve which an anxiety was professed, particularly when that interest did not ask relief, but only that its burdens sliouUl not be incred T [Hear.] Was it wished to retain the colonies ? If so, and if the distress of those colonies were such as it notoriously was, it could not lie consistent with the professed view, and intentions of his Majesty's Ministers to refuse an inquiry. He trusted no reliance would lie placed ii{mni a statement which had been addressed ^o the .Noble Lord (Lord Althorp signified assent) by some gentlemen, and which he (Mr. Buige) had seen some Members reading, which contained the grossest falsehoods ever pennctL W liuever llie gentleman might be who wrote that address, he could not permit to gross a litiel on the character of tlie West India interest to pass unnoticed, which had no foundation in fact. The Hon. Mernbrr liere pointed out some mis-statements in tlie paper he referred to. He eulogised the character of the West India merchant, and coloiial hody, many of whoe dilh^ies, he observed, had jesulted Irom their liberal condOrt towards their labourersil>road. He would instance the case of a West India erclunt of the highest respectability^ lone a Member of thai H^tim, who had recently failed (Mr. Manning, we f>resunie), not through any extravagance or Uiinton speculations, but ihrouph the drain ocCiiioned by the demands of tlie laboun^rs on his estates for clothing and subMst. nee. The Hon. Mendx-r concluded by m.>vinga8 an amendment •' That a select committee be appoiut4>d to inquire ho* far the |)erriiission to refine lorciL'n siii^ar in this country i, op|>osed to tlie interests of iIm' West India colonies, and tends to encourage Uie continuance of the slave-trade." Mr. P. Thompson Mid,tlie Hon. Member had completely failed in establishing that the consumption of fiireign sugar would increase*in this country, and that the measure of Govcinment was not at all calculated to favour tlie slave trade. The fact was, that the bill was nothi ng but a renewal of tlie old bill with provisions of which the Hon. Gentleman wa, evidently unacquainted. He did not appear to be aware that for every hundred weight of foreign sugar imported into this country, an equal quantity of W est Indian sugar would be ex|>orted, and bearing in mind this inqxirtant point, it was difficult to perceive the injury to be inflicted on the colonial interests. The truth, was the principle of the bill had been sanctioned by the legislature over and over again — in tlie silk trade, tlie cotton trade, and other leading branches of our manufactures. The sugar must be refined somewhere, and the bill would enable this country to have the In^nefit o( the process instead of Hamburgh or Amsterdam, or any otlier place oo llie Continent where it might be refined, and imported into Fngland for consumption. Tlie Right Hon. (ientleman went into numerous details, to prove that the West Indian interests ai present posse.vs-d all fair advantages of tlie market. He believed that the intro^liiction of foreign sugars fiir refining, if carried to any extent, would be most beneficial to the British shipowners, fur a very large amount of British capital wa, invested in the productiS4 of sugars in the Rraxiis ; and it was to tlie advantage of the grower, to import it in British bottoms. He was satisfii-d that llie measure did net effect any injury to the British West Indian interests, and he only begged tlie House to bear in mind that the bill was to last but for one year. Mr. (fiMilburn thought the merits of the question lay in very narrow compass '" would delay tlM bill too long for any useful practical wif pose this session. [Hear.] *^ Mr. Gordon contended that if tlie bill were allowed to commute in force one other year, tlie result woukJ be ruinouto the West India interest, and perhaps fatal to the connexion of the West India colonies with tlio mother country. [Hear.] Mr Maberly, as a friend to the West In.lia interest. would suggest to the Hon. and Learned Gentleman (Mr. Burge) the expediency of wiUidrawing his motion for the present, and d he so thought fit, of bringing it forward on a future occasion, in a mode pointed out by the Wobl, Chancellor of the Exchequer. Mr. J. Wood f onceivod that the Hon. and Learned t^-entleman had entirely failed in tracing tlie existing dis^ tressed condition of tlie West India interest to the operalion of tlie present bill. Mr. Hunie argued that relief ought to be extended to the W est Indian colonies, but contendtnl at the same tinnr that, as Government had determined to grant a committee of inquiry, the West Indiaa interest ouht to alloiftiw Bill to puss for one yeai. ""^ Mr. J. Weyland supported the proposition of Governnient. Mr. Robinson was almost inaudible amidst the calls of the House for Questioa/' He was understood, however, to support tlie melk>n of Hr. Burge. The House then divided, when there appeared— for the motion 113 Aga"t it 125 Majority for Ministers . .—12 On out entering the gallery we found Mr. Burge on his % legs, declaring tliat he wouUl, in every subsequent statre *^^ oppose the process of this Bill as far as the farms of th^ House would allow. Mr. B. Gordon hoped, that after the small majority tiie Ministers had obtained, tliey would not persist in fo'rcinf this Bill upon the Hou8(^ A desultory conversation then took place between Sir F. Burdett, Mr. (;oulburn. Mi. C. Ferguson, and Mr. K, Douglass, after which Lord Althorp declared his intention of |>ersisting in this Bill. Tlie Speaker then put tlie quaafion that this leport be now received. w TIk' gallery was cleared for a division, but no devision took place. Tlie report was ilwn received, and a Bill was ordered lo be brought in pursuant lo the resolutions. From the New York Commercial Adwcri'uer, FROM CANTON. ^ We published on Monday, a letter from Bafavia, stating that the sloop of war Coote left Anjier on the ^th July, for Lugland, with tlis|>atclies from Canton, announcing that serious difficuhies had occurred l)etween llie Lnglish Com^ pany and the Chinese, which were likely to retalt in a total suspension of the tiade between the two countries, and probably in a war. [A paragraph was publiihod in this paper of last evm^ ing, giving tlio substance of a letter iVo-n St. Helena; September 21. reporting tlie entire breaking up of the Last India Company's Lstablishment at Canton, the murder of llie princi|al English residenu, Ac. which'happily proves by subsequent advices, not to be true. Sffieak* ing of ihe letter to which we refer, tlie Mercantile 6f this morning, from which we take the subjoinetl extracts, says :] The above intelligence wouW Iwive excited consider'ablo interest here but for the fact of the arrival of letters by the way of Mexico from Canton as late as the ralA •/ Jnl^ which state that the trade had not been susfx-nded. Th# following is an extract from one of these letters. ** Camton, July 6. — There was a little imfirovement a| the moment in imports, in consequence of the difficulty hew tween the Chinese authorities and the Company. The latter threatened to stop the whole English trade, and issued notices to that effect, but finding that the proce'dings of the Chinese emanated from Pekin, they ha*e withdrawn tlieir notice, and referred the affair to the Governor General of India and the Englbh governrmmt at home.

We fnive nothing matenai to 1 boujrh he had examined the ) communicate, to assist in forming a judgment as to its pr^ subject with his Ix'St attention, he had not been able to make up hi, opinion one way or tlie otlier, and saw not how any Hon. .Member cmild arrive at a decision upon siH'h a complex question, without inquiry iNsfore a eh;ct committee. That inquiry lie earnestly urged upon tlie House. Lord ikltliorp had no objection to inquiry, so as jt did not interfere with the proirress of the present bill. It should be recollected that Ministers had, on a fiirmer occasion, assented to a proposition of tlie Noble .Member for Buckinehamshire for a committee of inquiry, but 4hat the West India interest had refused to take advantage of tlu bable tennination, unless it be that a growinp conviction of the unjiistifiabh' n i ire of tlw; proceedinjfs which are comfilained of, apjx .r u, j.i.vail in tlie minds of tlwise Cluneal whose opinion we have an opportunity of knowing.
