They ftill continue to arreft a number of perfons, whom they fufpect: to be concerned with; and the Marquis de Ve-valdi, we arc aflured, is taken up on the fame account at Trieiie. During the Carnival many perfons, who distributed cockades with patriotic tbvices, were feized and fecured. In mort, this Caglioftro has put an end to all our tranquillity.. Tae following is an extract, of the origin arid travels of that Jamous adventurer. His real name is Jofeph Balfamo. He was born at Palermo on the Stii of June, 1743. In his 16th year he became a Monk of the Third Order at CaUagiron, but not liking that Hate, he fhortly after entered himfelf amongit the Capuchins, who expelled him. Pretending that he had difcovered the fecret of making gold, he took in a gold-{Tiith named Marano, who advanced him configurable fums of money to carry on the procefs, with which fums Balfamo decamped to Calabria, where he loll all he had. He then went to Rome, turned tranferiber, and married Laurencia Feliciani. Finding he could do nothing there, he departed for France in 1773, and the year after appeared at Naples under the title of the Marquis of Pellegrini. He there met an uncle, with whom he returned to Palermo, whei'e Marano arretted him, but he was after wards liberated by the protection of a- Prince. He then went to Malta under the name of Count Caglioftro ; from Malta he went to Mufcovy, Poland, Pruflia, and Holland, where he embarked for Morocco ; then went by Gibraltar, Marfeilles., and Lyons, to Stfahburgh-, where hefet up for a phyfician, pretending to be poffefTed of a fecret by which he cculd cure the molt defperate diforders. He was in confequence fent for to Paris to cure fome fick, but being concerned in the affair of the necklace he was arrelted, and put into the rjaitile ; having obtained his liberty he fet off for England, and from thence went through Holland, Switzerland, Revero, and Trente, and then came here, where be was arreited, and conducted to the Caltle of Saint Angelo.

Tuesday, March 9. The Duke rf AtholVtPetition was referred to a Committee. The Houfe, in a Committee, went through the Scotch Creditors bill. Ordered the report to be made to-morrow. The Hou.e, in a Committee on the trade carnal on between the United States of America and the Bridfh dominions, came to a refolution, that the Ch airman mould move the Houfe for leave to bring in a bill to continue the act: now in force for regulating the fame. The Report of yefterday's Committee on Ways and Means was brought up, agreed to, and a bill ordered to be prepared accordingly. The Scotch Summer Semens bill was read a Mcond time, and committed for to-morrow. The Houfe was ordered to "go into a Committee to-morrow to confider of the duties on foreign cocoa n.�ts. The Houfe was ordered to go into a Committee to-morrow on the duties on low wines and fpirits in Scotland. Leave was given to bring in a bill to continue the Aft for empowering the appointment of Com-mifliotiers, to enquire into Crown Lands, Fo-refts, &c. &c. Mr. Popham faid he had as yet been unable to fulfil the promife he made laft Seffion to bring forward a bil! for the regulation of the Poor ; if the Seffion fhould however continue any length of time, he feoped to be enabled to bring it in before the �ejBon ended. At Four o'clock the Houfe adjourned. Lord Wycombe, who is arrived from the Continent with Mr. Markham, and who with good obfervation had the belt opportunities of informing himfelf, fays, that the Democracy in Brabant is gamiftg fuch ground that it is the general belief they will prevail over the Nobleffe and Clergy. The Democratic faction are all favourable to the French people, and have imbibed the new principles of France, and will prefer a connection with thzt country to any other. To favour this fpirit in the people of Brabant, M. Simonville, a known friend of M. de la Fayette, and an agent from his party, has been received with great honour in Brabant, and entrufted with high military command. In addition to thefe appearances, we learn that three royal regiments of France have gone over to the Brabanters-The regiment de la Couronne, d'Auxerre, and another. Their Lieutenants and many of their Captains have gone with them, but not their Field OiScers. Thefe regiments have always been confidered as the belt in the French fervice, and it is not imagined that they would have deferted-but it is believed they have gone over in confequence of an under-{landing with their own country. We learn further, that the new principles are penetrating every quarter of the world. The people are -every where examining their fituation, and prejudices are yielding to the force of truth. At Manheim there has been a formidable infur-rection, and an engagement. In Hanover itrong refolutions have been entered into. The people complain that a heavy tax laid upon them for a debt incurred during the feven years war is ftill continued upon them, though the debt has been paid-and they require to, know where it is gone, and why it is itill exafted ? In Sardinia the people are fo clamorous that an order has been iffued to prevent all French papers from being circulated. At Rome an Ailembly of Barons has been called for the piirpofe of raifing new levies of militia in their-refpective fcigniories, to counteract the effect: of the popular meetings, which are already tumultuous. Nay, the fpirit has even penetrated to the Brazils, the Governor of which, when recalled, couid not quit the place, but informed his Court that the people were ripe for revolt, and that ftrong meafures muft be taken. The Archbifhop of Canterbury has waited Jn perfon on the Miniiter, and returned him thanks, J in the name of the whole Bench, for his excellent defence of the rights of the Eftablifhed Church in the Houfe of Commons, againft the innovations attempted by the DifTenters, in the recent bulnefs of the Teft and Corporation Acts. Thurfday laft being appointed for rise c""�-bration, in Dublin, of her Majefty's birthday, the fame was obferved with every mark of loyalty and affection. At noon an Ode was performed before their Excellencies ai�d a numerous AiTembly of Nobility and Gentry; and in the evening a molt fplendid ball and entertainment were given at the Caltle, and attended by moll of the perfons of distinction in the country. Her Imperial Majefty of RulTia, .by the reward (be beilows 011 military merit, deferves the character the has acquired. She has lately honoured an Englifti Officer, Lieut. Trevennen", who commands a fquadron in her fervice," with a diitingaiihed mark of her approbation for his excellent conduct in taking, in the late campaign, the port of Barefound, in Finland-a fort deemed, from its fituation, almoll impregnable. She has prefented him with a golden fword of great value. The King of Pruflia, in his preparation a for war, is not unmindful of the interefts of fcience. He has lately parchafed the Roloffian library, confuting of 5085 volumes, collected at Berlin by the Rev. Mr. Roloff, preacher to the J erufalem church in that capital. A catalogue of it has been published, which fells upon the Continent for 5s. 3d.
