'Under the impreffion of this fentiment it is, that we feel happy to be able to ftate from the belt information that diligent enquiry could tput us in pofTeflion of, 2nd which We have every reafon to credit, that the difference between Mr. Burke and Mr. Sheridan, nianifelled in their sefpeclive fpeeches in Tuefday's debate,, in the Hoiife of Commons, arofe merely from the warmth of the public argument of the moment; that it Had no reference whatever to any opposition of opinion without doors on any other fubject, and that, however the two Gentlemen may differ in their fenfe of the French convulsions (to adopt a neutral phrafe) about which, it is fcaVcely poffible, that even the beit informed men ihould think exactly alike, -here is great probability of a fpeedv and perfect conciliation j well allured we are, that Mr. Bu-ke and Mr. Sheridan have met, and already palled the form and c.remony of renovated friendiiiip, and we hope foon to be enabled to-afiure the publick that the effentiah of reconciliation are atchieved. A meeting of the Welt-India merchants-, mortgagees, &c. was held yefterday at the London Tavern, which was thinly attended. The bu-finefs commenced at one o'clock, and after appointing a Committee; and paifmg a refolution to raife a fund to defray expences, they adjourned j before t.vo o'clock. . j Pallavicini, the Doge of Genoa, was crowned j on the nth of December, with the ufual for- ' maltties. So converfant are the French nation with our belt Lnglilh authors, that one of the National Affembiy frit read in Englifh, and then tranflated into French'. Yefterday a Court of Common-Council was held at Guildhall, at which the L'ord-Tvlayor, 16 Aldermen, Recorder, and a great number of Commoners, were prefent. The Lord-Mayor informed the Court, that the reafon of calling them together was at the requi- j lition of many Members, to conftder of the pro-grefs of the Excife Laws, Sec. The doc ;uets of feveral Teafes were then read, as were alio a number of petitions for renewal cf leafes. The requifition was then read, on which Mr. Powell apologized to the Court for being led into a recapitulation of the many arguments that had been urged againft the extenfion of the Excife Laws, and why an application fhould be made to Parliament for a repeal of the Tobacco Excife Ait; but as many gentlemen, � for the firft time, had taken their feats in the Court, he hoped to beitidulged for a few minutes ; he then entered very largely on the fubject, and concluded by moving that the Court do agree to petition for a repeal of the faid aft. Mr. Pari'.h feconded the motion, and a'rgfled much on the unconlututional privation of a ^rial by jury. Sir James Savf.'erfon confidered ,the motion for petitioning to. be premature, until the Court had come to fome ground or refolution for fuch application; he therefore moved, " That it is the duty of this Court to refill, by all lawful meanl, evcrv extenlTch of the Excife Laws, fo j long as thev continue to invade the juft privilege of our glorious. confiitution, that of the Trial by Jury ; therefore do agree to petition." &c. Mr. Pearkes fuggeiled the word right inftead of privilege, which being aiTented fo by the AUe'r-\ m:.ii, the motion was unanimoufly agreed to. \ The motion for petitioning was then put; fome \ gentlemen were for a general petition again!: the \ whole of the Excife Laws ; but after fome con-j veriation the queftion was carried in the aff.rma-| tive, and a Committee appointed to draw up 1 the petition, which, was accordingly prepared, j and being read was agreed to, and ordered to be J prefentedby the Sheriffs. The Infh Society Was then filled up, and notice was given by feveral Members of motions they intended to make at the next Court. DAVID GARRICK. Some years fmce, this amiable character Was at Akhorpe, while the Ducheii of Devonfhire was a child ; and, in a letter from that feat, after fpeaking of her fportive innocence and good nature, the epifde concludes with this Compliment to the infant Lady Georgiaria.

The vacancy in the Royal Academy, occa-fioned by the death of Myers, the excellent miniature painter, was fupplied on Wednefday evening. The ftruggle lay between Bonomi, the architeO, and Fufeli, the painter; the number for Fufeli was twenty-one, and for Bonomi, nine, fo that Mr. Fufeli is now a Royal Academician. The fea has recently made confiderable innovations on the Earl of Bute's eftate near Chriil-church; two fields of fome acres each have been entirely wafhed away, and further lofl'es may be feriopfly apprehended, unlefs fome iteps are reported to', to prevent the further encroachments of the ocean on that fpot of land. ......
