LONDO N, APaiL 1a.
A CONSUL from the United States of Ameri-
ca, for the regulation of commerce between
Englan nd America, Ii tortll to make his ap-
pearance in Loodop. Mi. tarid, of South-Caro-
lina, is faid to he appointed.
The Lord ChanctUr Itent on Friday to St.
James's, and received fr6m ilt Mrefty the Great
Seal newly engraved by his Majety's Engra-
ver I the temporary Great Seal, which the day
after the rbbery was caft in copper, was at the
fame time delivered utp In bia Majfty's pretence,
and defaced'fote him.
Yesterday his Majefy honoured Capt. Douglaf
(now Sir James Iouglafl) with the dignity of
knighthood at St. Jameas'
On the late grand queftlon rrepefing a Reform
of Parliament, fevera bf the Minitcr'e particular
f.icnds divided againff him I among them were
Lord Mulgrave, Sir Gregory Page Turner, Mr.
William Grenville, Mr. Role, Mr. Banks, and
Mr. Scot.
Mr. Jenkinfon and all his friends voted against
the Q.,eflinn of Reform. The Earl of Lonflatel's
people w-nt for it.
The late decision against a Parliamentary Re-
form is nothing more than was to be expected.
No projc6 of that kind can hope for fuccfa, till
it orwinates with the people.
A Guelntleman w'rfaying to friend on Monday
laft, that he was now in hopes the Conflitution
would be amended by taklug away the rotten and
corrupt boronuhs. I' Let the Conltitution alone,
(replied his fi icnd)it Is like an oldl Ciielirc Cheefe,
take away the rotten parts, and the rell will be
worth nothing.
It is generally thought that ftme depredations
will Ihortly be committed on the Spanillh fettle-
ments by fome enterpriflng Americani of the New
Staten, who have the /limului of poverty, unfup
ported by principle, tio urge them on. All claIffe
of people there wili for a retete to commence
hostilities, to that Spain bids fair to be rewarded
for fitpporting the New States in a way that lhe
little dreamed of.
Extral of a letter from Of/lnd, April rI.
4" Luke Ryan and Mercator, the two piratical
Captains who committed fo many depredations
on the Englifh Eaft country trade, during the
course of laf war, and were capitally conviAled
for their offences at the Old Bailey, after their
enlargement, which \rwa procured by the inter-
ftrence ofllit firit female chaiadcr in France, re-
turnedto Dunkirk, where, to their great furprife,
they foulnd the Bank, in which they ad deposited
near a hundred thousand pounds of their ill.gotten
wealth, was broke, and In coittfquence themselves
reduced to poverty. Mercator embarked as mate
of a ihip foon afterwarnl for the Weft.lnlies,
anti perillted in a form of Cape rrancois. Ryan
is now a waiter at an hotel In this city, and con-
duAs himself with the utmoft property in that
humble Ration."
