Mr. Grenville has informed the gentlemen concerned, that it is now too late this year to bring it forward, and that it will certainly be fubmitted to Parliament in the next Seffion. The outline of the plan is, that Canada fhall be divided into two Governments, Upper and Lower. This divifion they Hate to "be neceffary, on account of the increasing population of the upper parts of the province, and the necelfity of a ltrong government. The defue of the people is to be complied with in giving them an AfTembly in each ; and the whole to be under a Governor General. The Count D'Artois is faid to be now at the Court of Maarid.

The fame night the houfe of Sir Edmand Head, of CookeVcourf, Carey-ftreet, was broke open and robbed of plate, apparel,  erit the good Opinion you entertain of us, by ailri<3 and unfliaken Attachment to the Princi les of the Conflitution, by an upright and independent Conduct in Parliament, and by a zealous and active Attention to the In-terefts of the County of Hints. If we have inadvertently omitted paying our perfonal Re-fpefts to every Fr-enoider, we hope it will be attributed to the very great Difficulty of waiting on every Individual in lb extenfive a County.
