IRELAND.  DUBLIN, Feb. 3. The Public have been greatly difappointed this evening : the queftion of Union expected to have been brought forward in the form of a MeiTage from his Majefty, is further poftponed to Wcdneftla.y next. Thirty-two new Members were introduced and took their feats, of whom live are known to be Anti-Uni-onifts ; of thefe, two are Counfellors Sauren and Bur-roughs. On coming out of the Iloufe, Mr. Grattan was recognized by a crowd alfembled' in College Green, and was received with the loudeft acclamations, and an attempt was made to chair him, but he avoided it by returning back into the Houfe and leaving it by a-nother avenue. Several,of the leading Union Members were hiffed, and it was much apprehended that a riot would have taken place, but fortunately it was not fo. The Corporation of the City prcfented the Petition againft the~Union to Melfrs. Ogle and tlaxsford this <lay at the Royal Exchange, attended by ciicum-Iftances of much form and folemnitv ; a valt number of perfons attended, all wearing anti-union ribbands. !Suid preceded by a band of mulic playing iblemn and �ferrous airs. The Parliamentary Anti-Unionifrs had a Meeting '.^eftcrday at Lord t'Aarkmotit's houfe, in Palace-row. -"ThelVIarqitis of Duxaifnire was pnfcnl. and peculiarly active. it HOUSE of COMMONS, Feb. 3. The Sfifdlrr t�ok the Chair at four o'clock, when �^32 new Members took th-e oaths and their feats, after ti'hich, _ The ChancfUor of the Exchequer rofe to fay, that .^he noble Lord who reprefented the Government in that Houfe,' had been for fonve days violently in-'difpofed with a cold, and that he was commiilioned %�y the noble Lord, to expre.fs his extreme concern at iibt being able on this day to attend his duty in the Iloufe. He, however, was alio authorifed to ftate, that on Wednefday next, the noble. Lord would be-.y'ond a poflibility of difappointment attend in his ptace, arid therefore, he moved, that the Houfe Ihould .'�atitsriiing adjourn to Wednefdaylrext, - The motion Avas agreed to. The Chancellor o/"v th&Exchefnir moved, theor^fefs of the day, one ,of which was for a Call.of the Iloureji which was. alfo poftpoaed to Wednefday. ' Mr. C. Bercsford laid, heheld in his hand a number of Petitions from the different Corporate Bodies of the metropolis, againft the incorporating Union with Great Britain. Ho.was aware that Adminiltra-tion fometimes looked upon Petitions of this nature with no very high degree of refpect; but, when Gen1-tlemcn reflected that his Majefty's Goverment in Ireland,-fince the former rejection of this odious raea-fure by the Parliament of Ireland, have accepted ad-dreffes in favour of the meafure from individuals cliiting^rfilicd by no corporate character, and of whdin numbers arc not known at all; that they have, received, with favour and grace, addrefies for an Union from obfeure villages and petty hamlets in diftant quarters of the country-addrefies levelled directly againft the Confutation and the independence of the kingdom; he mould hope that Peti^oas, fuch as he had had the honour to prefent irom the metropolis of Ireland, and from bodies of men, whole principles and loyalty had flood a fevere trial, would be allowed by Adminiltration to weigh fomewhat with them againft fhofe addrefies to which he had alluded, lie then prefented a Petition from the Lord Mayer, Sheriffs, Commoners, and Citizens uf Dublin; one from the Guild of Merchants, the Guild of Goldfrniths, and another from the Matter Manufacturers in Wool and Cotton, which were read, and ordered to lie 011 the table. Mr. Ogle fecondetl Mr. Beresford's motion, that thefe Petitions fliould be received, ami laid he could not believe that his Maje'ly's Miniftcrs and the Parliament of Ireland would not pay the fame rcfpc<5t to the lenfe of the metropolis of this country, which is uniformly paid by the Parliament of Great Britain to the fenfe of the capital of Great Britain, Adjourned to Wednefday. PARLIAMENTARY INTELLIGENCE. HOUSE OF COMMONS, Friday, Fe�, 7. Lord Hazoke/bun/ moved, that it. fliould be an in-ftruction to the Committee to' whom was refeired the Ati of the 17th of the King, for regulating the Affize of Bread, to confider what remedies would beftanfwer to prevent the inconvenience arifing from the deficiency of the laft crop of wheat.-Ordered. The Bill enabling his Majefty to receive the affift-anceof Militia Forces in certain cafes, was read a iirft time, and ordered to be read a fecond time on Monday. .lie Military Seduction Bill was read a firft time, and oWered to be read a fecond time on Monday next. \ committee of supply. itfelf into a Committee of Supply. Mr. Wallace called the recollection of the Houfe to the vote for the Navy laft year. There was then voted 120,000 feamen, but from the alteration of cir-cuniftanccs fince that time, particularly by the fur-render of the Dutch Fleet, it vyas deemed prudent to reduce the allowance this year 10,000 men. He' iiiould therefore move it as a refolution of the Committee, that 110,000 men fliould be employed for the fervice of the Navy for the year 1S00, including 22,000 Marines. Mr. Nicholl laid he felt himfelf bound to oppofe any fupply for the carrying on of the War upon the prefent avowed principles. It was now acknowledged by Adminiltration that we warred for the reftoration of the Bourbon family-[A cry � of No ! No! from the Mhnjlerial Benches]-'Phe Hon. Member then infilled that fuch was the ncceiTary inference to be drawn from Lord Grenville's anfwer to Bonaparte. True, indeed, it did ftate other objects, fuch as the utter reduction and crippling the power of France. This he infifted amounted to the fame thing ; becaufe if ever the power of France was reduced to fuch a low ebb as that, they would b< unable to refift any form of Government that we fliould be plcafed to ini-pofe upon them. Indeed he had given credit to Miniftcrs in having acted wifely and magnanimoufly in having avowed that object, becaufe he confidered that a Nation at war ought always to know, and be able to ftate with precilion, the objedt for which they were contending. The Hon. Gentleman afiumed this point, that we were at war to reftore the. Bourbon Family, and from thence went into a long detail of the arguments which have been already ufed, to (hew the improbability of accompli.lhing fuch a meafure. From the change of property-from the deftructron of the Nobles and Ecclefiaftics-from the unwillingnefs of the Country to re-fubmit to Feudal and Ecclefiaftieal Burthens-from the probable future want of concert among the. Allies, &c. The Hon. -Gentleman was proceeding, but was interrupted by Mt. Baker, who itated, that he did not doubt the ingenuity of the lion. Gentleman would be able to connect his arguments with the quoftion, but he thought thev were rather remote, and begged the qucllion read  Mr. liobhouje rofe to fupport the proceeding of his Hon. Friend. Mr. Pitt thought it was not correct that another and another ihould i'ueceed to explain for the Hon. Gentleman. Mr. Hob/ioufecontended that his Hon. Friend was in order. Mr. Ticnicy obferved, his Hon. Friend was afiign-ing-reafons why no fupply ought to be granted, and every Member had the privilege of fpeaking, it was not confined to any particular Members. Mr. Pitt begged to fay a few .words. In what had been fa id it could not be prefumed that there was any .-intention to fetter the freedom of debate. The only with was to lave time : but if all the Hon. Gentleman's fpeech was to be connected with the queition, not only by his own ingenuity, but alfo by that of his Hon. Friends behind him, the Houfe had made a bad Mr. Nichott accordingly rcfumcd, ar-1 continuedf His arguments to fliew the improbability of fucceed-r ing in the attempt to reftore the Bourbon Family.- From thence he adverted to the commencement of the War, which he faid was pufhe.d forward by Wxa^r of his Majefty's Minifters, not frdm principles or' juftice or of national advantage, but from principles cf private intereft; and it became the Country to confider whether they would fupport them in the dif-aftrous conflict? He could "not conftioufly do it, as he was perfuaded that every thing depended upon the Ipeedy reftoration of peace. - Mr. Addington profefied himfelf greatly furprized that the Hon. Gent. Ihould oppofe the Supplies, and he was equally furprized at the reafons by which he had attempted to jultit'y that conduct. -The.Hon. Gentleman had gone info the queftion of war, a queition which was fo abry difcufled the other night, and fo completely anfwered by his Hon. Friend below him. Upon that therefore he ihould lay nothing, but content himfelf with calling, the attent'on of the Houfe to one argument of aii Hon. Gentleman's (Mr. Sec. Dundas) which was, fuppo.fing you made peace, f;theftabiIity of the French Government!"-There-" was' as.gVeat a fpirit of moderation now in France as at any tiinefince the Revolution. This fpirit had fticwn itfelf in the Council of Elders, Ihortly before the arrival of Bonaparte. If France.was now ib weak and ruined as had been ftated; this country has in that v.eaknels a fe-curity which ihe could not have under any other form of Government that might exilt in J'Yance* There was as much fecurity and as little perfidy to be expected after a peace made with Bonaparte as with . any of the Bourbons. But from the whole line of conduct purfued by Minifies, he wardenrly of opinion, that their object was to carry en the war .till they retlored that family to the Throne of Prance. Bonapaife would fay the fame thing now to the people of France, and would make ufe of the rejection of his overtures a> a means of confolidating the whole power of that country in his own hands. It was England then which furnifhedhim with the belt mean* and the beft arguments, The object of reltoring the Bourbons was as unattainable now, as at any period fince the commencement of the war. Every means had been already tried to effect it; powerful confederations had been excited-great armies had been brought into the field under the molt experienced Generals: yetwe were not nearer to the attainment of the object, tie deplored the refolution which the.'Houfe had -come to on the fubjeet of the late overture, and he was fure this country would be obliged to make peace on worfe terms than it was now in its power to obtain.-' The conduct of Minifters then wits as rafh as it was inconfiftent.. They were obliged on this occaiion to fay, that they were not bound by their former pro-fellions in favour of peace; and this they, did at the very time they were charging .the enemy with a breach of kis^p^JMiojis, befides his^other crhiies. . Lord Haw/ce/bwy obferved, that the argument's of Gentlemen on the other fide of the Iloufe appeared to reft on an affumption that there was a fuflieient degree of ftability in the Government of France; and that, if there was none at all, that might n io-lation of their treaty with the Porte by the .invafion of Egypt, at the very time when a Turkilh Ambafia-dor refided at Paris. Evecy thing that happened fince the laft experiment Ihould make this country cautions how The negotiated again. . With refpect td\ the reftoration of the Houfe of Bourbon, he Ih'ould be afhained if he did-not fay he wifhed fiich an evf to take place. He wiflied it on the pi'irie.iplesluf hu inanity and of public juftice, as it was the only rafe of blotting out of the page of Hiftory; and rid ' the. wo rid of the crimes of the '.French Revoiutio! llttt
