Dr. Addington; the father of Jthe. Speaker, is fd ill, as to be defpatred of. The Speaker was fent, for j2&prefs On Friday, and he put off hie public dinner, on Saturday. t .His death, would make it,critical ftogpage of fome days in the oil- finefs of the Houfe. Mr. Hammond Is* a candidate for the county of Cambridge^ on the Bedford intereft. The following is confidently faid to be the pre-tife poflure of affairs1 on the. Continent: Leopold having manifefted fo explicitly, hiS defire of peace, me Britidi court is difgolea to favour the reunion of the Belgic Provinces with the Auftrian Crown. Our minifters forefee the danger of their falling foon into the" arms of France, if Teparated from their German Sove reign ; and they naturally dread an event, which would give fuch an acceffloh pf ftrength to their powerful rival. Holland wifely dreads the fame contingency ; but (he is fo much in tlie power of Pruflia, that ihe cannot maintain her 'opinion with, firmnefs- Pruflia, for the fame reafon that we oppofe a meafure that may unite them with France, oppofes their reunion with Auftria, who is his rival. He has no dread of their falling into die arms of France, who may, by an obvious change of connection, become his ally-and; therefore, the court of Berlin, poffeffed of a fine army, is for improving the favourable crifis, and crippling its moft formidable rival j as the means of doing which, they are defirous of bringing over England to the treaty, fome time ago coSclud'ed between them and Holland for fupporting Brabant- A demur has takeh place in the negociation for the Belgic independence, and fomething like a coldnefs (ubfifts between the courts of London and Berlin. Perhapa the word coldmfs is too ftrong a term : but thercls an hefitation and a difpute which accounts for the filence which our Gazette has maintained oh the fubj*& of the revolution. The King of Pruflia xi not himfelf eager for War, but he is goaded on by the advice of his minifter, the Count de Hartzberg, who inherits, more than his Sovereign, the politicks 6F his late great mailer--and by the Duke of Brunf-wick, who is ambitious of fignalifcing himfelf as commander in chief of the Pruflian army. The young Prince of Pruflia has alfo an efeterprizing and eager fpirit, anxious far glory, and he is faid to urge His father to war. In the mean time, Leopold has jsropofed to accept the raediatidn of the courts of London and Berlin^ as offeredby them to Jofeph, and refufed.   Our court is willing to renew the offer. The Duke of York's carriage which he fported at the London Tavern, on the Anniversary of St. Patrickj was a very fine vis-a-vis, an4 the h'drfes manes beautifally decorated with Jhamrt'tki. Hyde Park was yefterday more crowded than ever : there was literally no moving.-" This promenade," faid an Irifti wit, "is a walk where every body Jiands fliliy Tne Duke of York was on foot, and did his utrrioft to fqueeze throagh the croud. The" Duke and Dutchefs of Laval were alfp among the ptdeftriar.'s. She declared her afto-nithmetit at the number of cheeks that were r$d without rouge, and faid that all France could not exhibit the quantity of natural bloom, of which Hyde Park could boaft that day. Money is fo plentiful at prefent among certain defcriptions of people, that bills are difcounted at four and a half per cent. ; and a quarter per cent, premium is often added. Land fells very high on the other hand. Wales is at laft beginning to emerge from that indolence fhe has been long funk in. A fpirit of indtiftry; once introduced,-would extend itfelf by degrees, arid the country would every day irri-prove in agriculture arid manufactures. The philanthropy of the preferit day is truly diftirtguifhable. In the courfe of the lall week we find that thd Scottifh Corporation received at a di-.fn.er upwards of 506I. arid that without any contribution froip any .branch, bf* tne fioyal Family; ^he Irifli Society r^coi^ed 8o3l. of which 200I. howiverV came frorti thi liberal puHe$ 6f the Prince of Wales and Duke bf York'.'
