N llie CAUSES nf the-i.rferinlendance of JAMES HEATH, Esq R.A. accompanied by Explanations of llie various Sub-jerts,by JOHN NICHOLS, E>q F.A.S L.E. & P, The4'tatea of lhe'inimitabIe'Hog.irth have not only been sought for with avidity in onr own country, but.have been admired in every civiliz.'d nation in the world; and,, since his death, various copies of them have, f.-um time to time, been published. Bui, wilhou.l a wish tu depreciate IheBe copies, it must he allowed that those which were engraved by himself, and received the advantage of his hitesl thoughts, may fairly claim the preference. Almost eighteen centuries ago it was observed by Horace, of men of genius and atlainnient superior to tlie vulgar, that Ihe honours and applause, which were denied them by malignity or envy during their lives, would be rendered them by more generous and jtiht posterity afttr their decease i- " Urit enim fnlg'jre suo, (jui pra*gravat arles Infra se po.3itas: extinclus aniat)ilur idem.** If this remark were ever true or applicable, it has proved peculiarly so with respect to Hogarth. Ihe man, who, with persevering application in the exercise of extraordinary talents, found himself at a veiy advanced period of life before those talents were suitably rewarded, before he could enjoy the ease of independent afBiience, had no sooner left the world than a multitude of advocates and admirers presented themselves, lo comment on the pruduclions of his genius; to point them out to that admiration which had been cautiously aud coldly bestowed ; anil to excite that spirit of i partiality in his favour, which, by rendering his works the j objects ef search and curiosity, progressively made them, more and more valuable. The productions of Hogarth's satirical and bnmornns pencil hove been universally allowed lo have promoted the cause of nioralily and virtue, by painting vice in those disgusting coUurs which compose its natural and unavoidable contrast. His Euhjecls are calculated lo improve the Man as well as the Artist; and he teaches with effect, because he delights while he instructs. It has been said of him, th:it, iu his pictures, he composed comedies ; his humour never fails lo excile mirih ; and is directed against the fil objects of ridicule or contempt. The powersof his pencil were not wasted in Ihe illiberal efforts of personal attacks; the application of his satire was general, and the end at which he aimed was Ihe defeat of Fully and of Vice. " His graphic representations are indeed books : ihey have the tecmius, fruitful,suggestive meaning of words. Other pictures we look |it: bis prints we read." Many of Ihe. early Plates of Hogarth were engraved by hint for different prinlsellers; but those retaineil by himself, and sold both in his life-liine and after his death as a set of his works, weie seventystveii; which, in 1790, were bought by Messrs. Buydell, who added lo them more lhan thirty other Plates. All these have been rPcently purchased by the present Proprietors, who now ofl'er them lo the good lasle of the admirers of IJritish genius ; iulemling lo adLt.ON'S M " ,4v^^ . - .., r�S-BY HI MSELF, 'HE ENGLISH -fi^^NSilStlON, l.v Mr. O-M EA KA, - ' -------"......."" *' ING,; with Ihe ad Author of these Memoirs fii-Ihei'Editor, proving Anouynious " Manuscril di^iSlfiffelene" was not written .by Nap.i�lei�n., . . v. ��'fjv.' � ~' � - The FRENCH EOlTlON'ciJmin'ucs oil sale at IZs. extia boards.  - ^. i':.>^^'t.;^-v,. -^v.^..^ Prioted for Sit Btti%cI'yebilp�.!iU*^^^ N.B.--The nnprrcedeiited.;4;|^d >i>r (bja Work having reuriereil it necessary to pfepar^^^^iurh larger Eililiun of the Translation than was 'orighidi))p1n�ehd^l, the publi�*Bou has been unavoidably. ijet'erre.^Jif'om >TI>urst)ay till Tomorrow, when it will potitiveljf: (jijce place. rT>HE OBSERVERTof SUWiDAY U�t (iVlLL BE ON SALEDUR-lNi3 THE WEEK.

Iinmedintely nfter the ceremony of proclaiming King George IV. at Hylhe, the Corporation met for the election of a Mayor for that place, for the ensuing year. The custom hns heretofore been to appoint to that office (in rotation) one of the le-siHent Jaruts; H. Tritton, Esq. however, on account of his Hiivaiiced age and iiifirmitiei', declined ill favour of his son ; on which T. Cnstle, E.sq. was put ill nniniijHtion by the Freemen :' a shew of hands was decidedly in favour of the latter, but on a poll being demanded, the numbers at the close were for W. Tritton, Esq. 23-T. Castle, Esq. 18, when the former was declared duly elected. Ou Monday a royal salute was fired from tJie Norlhiimberland, lying ofll" Sheerness, in honour of the accession of his present Majesty, King George the Fourth, to the throne. MARGATE, FEB 3. This day htis witnessed the proclamation of our Gracious Majesty George the Fourth, The official document did not arrive till this morning: but notwithstanding the shortness of the notice, we seldom remember to have seen the streets so thronged. The Deputy, Ihe Magistrates, and the principal itihabi-tants of the town, attended at the Town Hall, nt one o'clock, where the Proclamation was first read, in a distinct and audible voice, by Mr. J. Boys, the Solicitor, followed by the reiterated acclamations of the populace. The procession then moved forward in tbe following order :- Constables, to clear the way. The Town Band. Three Gentlemen on horseback, bearing .polours. "Three Gentlemen on fool, performing the same office. The Depufy, Francis Cobb, Esq. supported by tbe two Magistrates of the parish." Thc Rev. W. Frederick Baylay and Edward Boys, Esq. . f ulhiwed by an immense crowd of eentleiuen of Ibe (own and neighbourhood. The procession passed up High-street, to the Church Gales, where the ProclatnBtion was again read; it then proceeded to the house of the Rev. Mr. Baylay, in Cecil-square, where the ceremony was again enforci^d. At the hospitable mansion of the above Gentleman, tlie principal inhabitants partook of refreshment, and drank the health of George the Fourth. The cavalcade then further proceeded lo the abode of the worthy Deputy, the last point at which the proclamation was read, and the party partook of further refreshment ; they then marched to the Pier and back through the Parade, to the Town Hall, where Ihe liberality of the Deputy had prdvideil a barrel of strong beei-, which was drained by ihe populace in drinking " long life and a happy reign to George Ihe Fourth." tore, february.5. Early on the morning of Thursday, a hand-bill, of which the following is a cojiy, was circulated through the city :- " February 3, 1820-City of York-The Lord Mayor having received a eoinmand lo proclaim his Majesty King George ihe Foiirth, King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, hereby gives notice, that such Proclamation will he made at the usual places, and with Ihe usual forms, this day, al oue o'clock. The Lord Mayor requests, that inch of the Gentlemen and Clergy of this city as wish tu form part of the procession, will do him the honour of meeting him and the other Members of ihe Corporation, at tbe Guildhall, at the above hour." The Members of the Corporation assembled at ten o'clock, in order to complete the usual formalities incident on the transfer of the power of the Chief Magistrate of ihe city ; and by ihe hour of one, a great number of Gentlemen arrived. The Archbishop of this province (on whom a deputa-'tion had previously waited), and several' of the Clergy, were met by the Lord Mayor, &c. in the Hall, near the entrance, and the procession moved soon after lo the front of the tVIaiision House, ou the steps ef w^hich the ProclamBtioii was first read. The order of the pri:yfj|ssioii was as follows ; - The Ancient Flag*, &c. of the eorpdration. Five additional Emblematic Flags, procured f�rtheday. The City Band of Music, and the Lord Mayor's Esquires. Tlie Lord Mayor, the Archbishop, and the late Lord Mayor. The Archbishop's two Chaplains.

The greater part of the company soon after retired ; but several gentlemen remained till late in the evening. We cannot, however, conclude this detail, without expressing the sincere pleasure we experienced, at witnessing the cordiality and gentlemanly condesceii.sinn exhibit-: ed between the Dignitaries of the Church .and. those of llie Corporation; and we would gladly hope, that what we have niready witliessed in thi). respect, may prove the harbinger of no Uiiimi sentiment between the two, which will increas-e more and more, till each shall strive to surpass the other in acts of friendshi)) and in deeds of cnurte.-y, generous as the bounty of heaven, and pure as the Christian religion which they respectively teach or profess. FOr.KSTONR, FEBRUARY 3. This day his Majesty George IV. was proclaimed through the principal streets of this town, uniidst the heartfelt acclamations of all descriptions of pe.->-ple. The procession was accompanied by colours and a band of mui�ic, and consisted of ,)ohn Bate-raan. Esq, Mayor, supported on his rigiit by the Rev. F. Cox, and on his left by J. Sliiden, Es^, the senior Jurat; the remainder of the Corpnnilion I'ollowiiiiT in regular order. Inconsequence of the long period elapsed since the performance of this" ceremony, it was extremely difficult to ascertain the regular mode ol conducting it. In the present instance recourse was had to the recollections of an old inhabitant, Mr. Michael Minler, who acted in the capacity of Town Drummer at the proclamation of our late lamented Sovereign. CARLISLE, FEBRUARYS. Yesterday the Civil Authorities of tin.'* city piil>-licly piocUimed his present Majesty, George IV. The whole of the military were present on the occasion. A bonfire wns lighted, and a qnantity of nie was given to the populace to drink his Majesty's health. After the ceremony, the Mayor, four Aldermen, and 25 other Gentlemen, assembled at the B'jsh Inn, when the Mayor being culled lo the chair, the following toasts were given : - � King George Ihe Fourth"-" The Duke of York and Ihe Army"-" The Lord Lieutenant"-"The Duke of Chnince and Ihe Navy"-" The Duke of Wellinglon"-" Tlic Cor. puration of Carlislp," three times three-" .Sir Jauies (Graham, M.P."-" Mr. Thompson, wilh thanks for his i�4: wheje, after driiiking the health of King GeorgelVi the prddatbation will'be signed by those pTesei t, 1^ ;
