A person sent from the Bepublieof Cblumhia had-entered the city to propose an armistice. Bolivar lunpself was to come i(�a^few days' fymaVitlea^a, Mf^ith is tmly seven or eight leagues distant, in tlie interior. Every thing .seemed to announce the end of this obstinate and unfortunate war. On the 8th of July, Rear Admiral Jurien proposed to sail, and continue his ccui^ev with the Colosae ship of the line, and the Ga/a/Aee frigate - Before he quitted Porto Cabello he gave orders for the captain of the brig Sylene, of the Egerie corvette, and the //iVowefe^ galliott, to return to i\4ar-tiniqiie, and put themselves under the flag of Rettr Admiral Du^erre. leave their anna and baggage on' shore, and take their departure as leftigees.

B'vear.) Sd. My lords are of opiniod, th/ttin adffition to the abovente, whiA may- be consider^ as a fair contribution to be required fium the individuals who may be entitlcd-to superannuation under the act of the 50tb CWge lU. c. 117, in aid^of the charge m curred by the public in xes^t thereof, a further contribiidon may justly be required from those who are ill possession of emoluments which have been ihcrieased since 1797, and which are greater than it is intended hereafter pemiariinidy to attaich to their respective situations. They therefore think that persons holding.offices, the salaries of whidh are hereafter to be reduced, shouldnbie called upon to pay an additional contribution of two and a half per cenu upon all offices exceeding .lOd. a year, and not exceeding *Q0l. Five per cent, from 50oL and not exceeding l,00ei^ And ten per cent: exceeding 1,(HkA. Provided that the increase of such respective salaries since 1797 shall have been not less than double the amount of the additional contribution hereby required. Such additibnal'Cdntributions respectively to cease whenever the parties paying the saine shall be promoted to a situation entitled^ under the new r^ulations, to asahury equal to that which they now possess. fthj No superannuation to be granted to any such contributor, except by- the Treasury, and by that board only, at four periods to be flted in each'year (except in cases of immediate urgency), when a special board or boards shall be held lor the purpose of considering all applications received in theprecedmg quarter; notice of which board shall be ayea to the heuis of the depart> ments recommending^ such ap^ications, froni each of which some proper o�Seer sfaalU if. required, attend to answer aU such questions as the board of treasury may put, in order to enable them to decide upon the fimess or relative urgency of each application; and to distribute the disposable amount of the fun^, or so miich of it as may be requisite, in such manner as, upon an examinatiod of all the cases before them, may appear mo:it cow-ducive to justice and the public interest. 7th'. The interest aocrumg upon the contributions to be ap))lietl in the first instance to the expense of management of the fund, and the remainder to accumulate for- the benefit of it. tb. If the aggregate sum now paid in superannuation allow, ances to public servants who hold i^es coming within the description of the first article, shall be found-to exceed-one-tenth of the aggregate amount of the salaries and l)ecuniiu'y onolu-InBients a� all the: said offices, the new superannuations to be granted in any one year shall not exceed one-half of the saving arising irbm such of those allowances as may have elapsed in the preoBcung-year, until the whole sum so granted shall be reduced to ten p^r cent, or under that amotmt, m conformity to the 4th larticie. My Lords are further of opinion, that it will be proper to propose to Parlianaent'torepeal the several ratesof allowances enacted by the 5th Geo. IIL cap. 117, and to substitute the following in tientisereof, viz^.>- Above ten years' service, and not exceeding 15, 4 12ths of the sal^: abtove -15; and not�xGeeding 80, &-l2du ; above SO, and not exceeding S5, &-i2ths; above 2S, and not exceeding 30,- 7-12th!s; above �0, and not exceeding 3jr, 8-l2ihs; above ai^ And not exceeding 40,9-12ths; above 40, and nut exceeding ;45, 10-12ths ; above 45, and not exceeding fO, ll-l2ths ; and above 5Q, the whde. Such reflective allowance* to be calculated upon the sahiry and pecuniary emoluments of the office, as Lbaiged to the paynoient made to the contribution fund; mi in ho case to exceed the net sum received by the officer ai'ter the de-dtietion-of sucb payment. My Lords are awaie, that notwithstanding the extreme importance of adhering t0 this scale as mndias possible, there na^ arise ^>eaal cases which it would be difficult to for^ee or enumerate, with respect to which some dieparture from this scale ' ma^ become indispensable, and that authority to provide accordingly should be reserved to their Lordships; they are of opinion, however, that it should be enacted, that in all such circumstances the cases should be laid before Parliament, togetlier with a- relent ofth^ cnrcumstances winch have led their Lordships to make tlie exception. My Lords, in calling upon the heads of the Other departments of his Maj^ty's Civil Government to enter upon a revision of theirrespeotiTe establishments, with a view to such economical reductions asmay^ fulffi the intentions of his Majesty, ex -ressed itfhiir answers to. the'addresses of both tiouaesof Pailiament, think it right to state the principles upon .which they have .proceed^, ana the course they^bave followed, in the revision of^th'e establiflhiBeat of the Treasury under their immediate diieetion. Tfiey have thought that they should best carry into execution the ihUjuiioiib-ieiepreBSed intheadUresses uf P&rHament, by keeping in view the following general rules :- 1st Triatevery office was to be restored to the situation, in re^>Qct^fa> the number of per^ns employed, and of their respe;.-tive emoluniedfo, id irhTch'it stood in 1797,1 a nd the amount of Uieir emoluments in some parts of the offi< which no greater iimaber of omcers simuld be retohietV tlnn w S necessary tor the execution of thebusinesM of the Treuniry in itk present stutc, enlarged 4s it has been by the iueorporatlmi of tlie whole business of tiie Irish Treasury, as well as greatr^lncreaSiMl in olher respects, and in wliicb the emblutnen** of taih class of officers should be as iK^Iy assimihited ta>'tiK>!jej>f corresponding situations in 1797, aa the alteration of the circuimtunces of tlie office would fairly adait. Such a plan haVhM Men prepared accordingly; and approved Iw their Lordships, mpyhart directed tltat tlie new ei>tabhsiinient shall be considered b.<i takh^effixt from tho 5ihaf January nest, and that every new aupmnmentor pfooiatitm whfth nt^ake-place front time day snail be considered as subject to the new regulations. In order to introduce this new system as early as may be practicable, yet with ssr little incumrenience as possible to the mdivi-duals wuose interests may be aflfected, they have directed that every person whose situation is not to be abolished shall retain his present emoluments (subject to snch payment to the siijier-aiinuated fund'as may be due therefrom), until, by promotion, or allowance ibr length of service, he shall be entitied, under the new reflations, to a salary at least equal to tiial which he now possessfcj.

Captain Oakes replied, * Sir Robert Wilson, I know you perfectly well, but f shall enter into no discussion witii you on this^^ point at present. I shall do my duty, and my men will do theirs.'- Ntithing further passed oii thiit occasion. Oli the following day Captain Oakes submitted' the occur-reho^ to the other officers of th& regiment, in oid^r CO obtain their opinion oil thb course which it' becuMli' him, as a'man uf honour, tb pursue on the subject. -He was willing tu regard the affair as one of a persbndl nature, solely fSk.-ti\ig hiinself, and only reqilired their sanction to take inimedi^ly tHe proper measures to obtain reparation- The ot J&'officeif of the r^m^nt, however^ itfusedtb dllbw^^ a ttans-atitSbn which they considered- itbply a' general reflection on the regiment ^tO' be ai^sied^on the terms of a private difference, sid wimld nbt consent that C^pt. Oitkes silbold take the affdir^upon bimseli^ iii tfie ihanner ^ibposedl A statement of what'dc� cunred at Cuniberldnd-^te bet^^n Sir R. Wilson and Capt. C^kes was in consequence drawn upi and transmitted to the Duke of York. His Royal Highness, on receiving it, caused' a private ihqliiry into the correctness of the facts to be instituted, and having found them established to his satis&ction, he referred the whok affair to the *King, who in consequence caused his royal plea.sure to be declare^^,. that Sir Robert Wilson should be dismissed the service." We see nothing to justify so harsh a measure if the above were true-we fearlessly, however, assert that the following is a far truer dtatemeiit of wht.t really occurred:- " The 14ili of August was indeed- � day fertile in tojacs of something niore than regret; since on account of the some anxiety for the preservation of hu'aan life, called forth from two honest iiearts by its outrageous proceedings, the country-has in-corred the double loss of a benevolent magistrate, and a gallant and skilful soldier. Sir Robert Wilson was lidmg with the other gentlemen who attended tu pay the last ttibute ^respect to her \a.i� Majesty. When he beard the pistbl shot? he expressed a desire to go up to the spot,- and ascertain the' cause of them.- His friends would have dietaiued him, froni consideting that his presence at such a scene might, .'ik'e liiany other innocent Und well-meant acts, be liable to malicious construction. This, Sir Robert W.lsuu declared to be nnwertby his r^rd, so long as there was a chance of saving oue life, or dissuading the military from the smallest exerdse of violence. Hie therefiire accosted the coiBuianding officer, simply astcidg- faim-�faether it was by his orders that the soldiers firoL- Th�Offi|;ec replied* No.* Sir R. then begged him ' for' God's^�IKe"tb intetl'ere and prevent the effiisiua of ' blood.' The firing did, as our informants have assured us, cease almost imnediatd^, end by the interposition of the officers." Those who consider the Peirpetrators of the massacre at Manchester worthy of the thanks of the Sovereign, may well, properly and consialeutly, punish such officious interference as this.
