progress of the Russtans, are hishly gratifying. Althougii
there had not at chat time been any oficial intelligence of
the surrender of Dantzic, information to that elect had
been received through private letlers from different parts
of the Continent and Islands up the Baltic. ‘The victori-
ous (roops of the Mimperor Alexander are also stated to
have entered Berlin, the capital of Prussia, and the head.
quarters of the Russian Monarch are said tu be at Warsaw.
To these satisfactory accounts it is added, that Denmark
and Sweden, the former being now reconciled to Great
Britain, are to co-operate with Russia; aud there does
not appear to be the smallest doubt, that in the event of
the above successes, the whole of the Northern States of
Germany will unite with the allies for the purpose of res-
toring frecdom to that long-oppressed portion of the globe.
There does not seem to have been any movement of
consequence by either army in the Peninsula ;—yeet it
continues to be rumoured, that the enemy’s troops are
about to depart for France, and the reason assigned for
this conjecture is, that they had very recently commenced
the plunder of those places that they were in possession
of. Dispatches had been received from Marquis Welling-

London, Feb. 26.—A Berlin Letter corroborates the
intelligence we communicated yesterday of the escape of
the King of Prussia from French controul, As soon as
Bonaparte heard of the defection of the Prussian army,
lw is Said to have seut seeret orders to the French Governor
of Berlio to arrest the King. A body of gens G@armes
Was sent (o Cliarlotteberg, the King’s residence, to execute
these orders. But the Ning received notice the day before,
and, assembling his body guards at Potsdam, proceedd
with the other Members of the Noyal Family to Breslaw,
without, as the [rench papers truly intormed us, SS passe
ig through Berlin.” Reeased thus from the Corsican
yoke, in the midst of his subjects, who to a man hate the
enemy, His Prussian Majesty has now an opportunity of
proving to Lurope that he is ‘¢every iv ck a hing.”
The following is a Copy of the Letter, mentioned ia
our last, to Mes Royal Highness the British Regent.
Sér.—Iis with great reluctance that 1 presume tu ob«
trude myself upon your Roya Highness, aud to sclicit
your attcuGion Co matters wlach may, at first appear rather
of a persoual than a public nature. If | could think
thems so—it they related iuerely to myself—I should ab.
‘fan fiom a procceding which might give uneasiness, cr
iWtcreupl the ose weighty occupations of your Reyal
Hishness’s time. T siiould continue, a silence and ret.res
ment, to lead the life which has been preseribed to me,
and console myseli tor the loss of that socicty and thuse
duimestc coudurts to wlieh | have so long been a strane
ger, by the relleetion thet it has beea deemed proper
sHouwd be ailiicted without avy fault of my own, and that
your Royal Uighuess knows it—But, Sir th re are consie
derations of a higher nature Chap auy regaid to my own
happiness, which render this address a duty both to Mys. If
aud Daughter, May I venture to Ssay—a duty alsu to
my Husband, and the People commited to his care? Thee
is a point bey oud which guillless woman cannot with safe y
Camry her forbearance. Lf her honour is invad d, the ac.
lence of her reputation is uo longer a matter of choice ;
and insignifies not whether the attack be made openly,
manfully, and directiy—os by secret infinuaion, and b
holding such conduct towarus her as countenances all the
suspicions that malice can suggest. LY these ought to be
the feclings of every woman in England who is conscious
that she deserves no reproach your Koyal Highness has
tuo sound a judgment, and tuo nice a seuse of honour, nut
to perceive how much more justly they belong to the Move
ther of your Daughter—the Mother of her who is destined,
I trust at a very distant period, to reign over the British
hmpire.—Itinay be known to your Roya Highness, that,
during the coutinuance of the restrictions upon your royal
authority, L purposely refeained frum making any repre.
sentations which might then augment the painful dilhculties
of your exalted station, At the expiration of the restrice
tions, 1 still was inclined to delay taking this step, in the
hope that Lm ght owe the redress I sought to your gracie
ous and unsolicited condescension. 1 have waited, in the
fond indulgence of this expectation, until, to my inexpres.
siblé mortification, [ find that my unwillingness to com.
plain has only produced fresh grounds of complaint ; and
{ am at length compelled, either to abondon all regard for
the two dearest objects which [ possess on earth, mine
own honour and my beloved Child, or to throw mysclf
at the feet of your Royal Highness, the natural protector
of both.—I presume, Sir, to represent to your Royal
Highness, that the separation, which every succeeding
month is making wider, of the Mother and the Daughter,
is equally injurious to my character, and to her education,
[say nothing of the deep wounds which so cruel an ar.
rangement inflicts upon my feelings, although | would faip
hope that few persons will be found of disposition to think
lightly of these. To see myself cut off from one of the
very few domestic enjoyment left me—certainly the only
one upon which I sect valuc, the society of my Child—in.

volves mcin stich inisery, as I weil know your Royal
Highness could never intlict upon me, if you were aware
of its bitterness. Our intercourse has been gradually di-
minished. <A single interview weekly seemed sulliciently
hard allowa~ce fora Mother’s afiections. That, however
was reduced to our meeting once a fortnight; and I now
learn that even this more rigorous interdicioa is to be
still more rigidly enforced —But while | do not venture
to intrude my feelings as a Mother upon y our Royal High.
ness’s notice, | must be allowed to say, that in the eyes
of an observing antl jealous world, this separation of a
Daughter from her Mather will only admit of one con.
struction fatal to the Mother’s reputation. Your Royal
Highness will also pardon me for adding, that there is no
less inconsistency than injustice in this treatment. Ile
who dares advise your Royal ‘Llighness to overlook the
evidence of my inuocence, and disregard the sentence of
complete acquittal which it produced—or is wicked and
false enough sti)! to whisper suspicions in yourear, betrays
his duty to you, Sir, to your Daughter, and to, your
People, if he counsels you to permit a day to pass with.
out a further investigation of my couduct. Ll know that
no such calumniator will venture to recommend a measure
which must speedily end in his utter confusion Then let
me implore you to reflect on the sitnation in which Tam
placed ; without the shadow of a charge against me, with.
out even an accuser—alter an inquiry that led to my am-
ple vindication —yet treated as if 1 were still more culpa-
ble than the perjuries of my suborned (raducers represented
me, and held up to the world as a mother who may not
enjoy the society of her only child.—The feelings, Sir,
which are natural to my unexampled situation, might
justify me in the gracious judgment of youe Royal High.
vss, had I no other motives for addressing you bat such
as relate to myself, But L wilt wot disguise from your
Royal thictness what 1 cannot for amoment conceal rom
myself, that the®serious, and it svow may be, the irrepa-
rable injury which my daughter sustains from the plan
at present pursued, has dune more in overcoming my re.
luctance to interde upon your Royal Highness, than any
suficrings of iny own could accoujlish ; and iffor her sake
1 presume to call away your Royal Highness’s attention
from the other cares of your exalted slaiion- I fecl con.
lideut Lam not claiming it for a matter of inferior impor.
tance either to yourself or your people. ‘The powers with
which the Constitution of these realms vests your Royal
Highness in the regulation of the Royal Family, Eknow,
because | am su advised, are ample and unquestionable,
My appeal, Sir, is made to your excellenC sense and libe.
rality of mind iv the excecise of those powers ; and If wil.
lingly hope thatyour own parental feelings will lead to
excuse the anxiety of mine for impelling me to represent
the auhappy Consequences which the present system must
entail upou our beloved child.—J» it possible, Sir, that
any one can have atiempted to persuade your Royal
Highness, that her character will not be injured by the
perpetua lence ollercd to her strongest ailccuons—the
studied care taken tu esteange her front my society, and
even tv interrupt all communication between us? That
her love for me, with whow, by His Majesty’s wise and
gracious arrangements, she passed Cie years of her infancy
and childhuod, never can be extinguished, Powell know,
aud the knowicdze of it forms (he greartest: blessing ol

View original Extracts from Baron de Wumbold’s Political Essay,
on the kingdom of New Spain, lately published ;
they throw considerable light on topics which it be-
hoves the friends of the West India colonies, on
both sides of the Atlantic:
** Fortunately the introduction of negroes has not aug-
mented in Mexico in the same proportion as the sugar
produge. Although in the Intendancy of Puebla, near
Guantla de las Amilpas, there are plantations which yield
annually more than from 1,100,000 to 1,665,000 Ibs. a-
voirdupois, of sugar; almost all the Mexican sugar is ma-
nufactered by Indians, and cousequently by free hands,
It is easy to forsee that the small W. [. islands, notwith-
standing their fay ourable position for trade, will not be
long able to sustain a competition with the continental
colunies, if the latter continue to give themselves up with
the same ardvur to the cultivation of sugar, coflee, and
cotton. Inthe physical as well as in the moral world,
every thing terminates in a return to the order prescribed
by nature, and if small Islands, of which the population
was exterminated, have hitherto carricd on a more active
trade with their productions than the neighbouring conti-
nent, itis only because the inhabitants of Cumana, Cara-
cas, New Grenada, and Mexico, began very late to pro-
fit by the immense advantages derived by them from na-
ture. But roused from a lethargy of many ages, freed
from the, shackles which a false policy imposed on the
progress of agriculture, the Spanish colonics of the couti-
nent will gradually take possessivn of Cie dillerent bran.
ches of the W. 1. trade. ‘This change, which has been
prepared by the events of St. Domingo, will have the
inost furtunate issue in the diminution of the slave trade ;
and sufiering humanity will owe to the natural progress
of things, what we had a right to expect from the wisdom
vs the European Governments. ‘Thus the colonists of the
Havaunah, welleinformed as to their true interests, have
their eyes fixed on the progeess of sugar cultivation in
in Mexico, and the colice of the Caracces, ‘They have
long dreaded the rivalship of the continent, especially since
the want of fucl, aud the excessive dearth of provisions,
slaves, metallick utensils, and the necessary cattle, have
considerably diminished the net revenue of the plantations.
‘6 Such is, in general the fertility of the soil of equi-
noctial America, that all the sugar consumed in France,
which is estimated at 44,000,000 lbs. avoirdu poise, might
be produced on a surface of seven square leagues, an ex.
tent which is nut Chicticth part of the smallest depsrtment

lations of St’ Domingy; nanely, the introduction of the
sugar cane®of Oraheile, which on the same extend of
ground yiclds a third more liquor than the common cane ;
the progress of agriculture on the coast of Mexico, Lou.
isiana, Caracas, Dutch Guyana, and Brazil; aud lastly,
the importation of sugar from the Kast Indices into Eu-
rope. This importation especially ought to fix the atten.
tion of those who reflect ou the future direction of com.
merce. ‘Ten years ago, the Bengal sugar was as little
known in the great market of Europe as the sugar of New
Spain, and now both of them compete with the sugar of
the West India Islands. The United States have received.
sugar from Asia, as follows:

View original 1,060000 | 1590000 | 2,450,000
‘¢ The great fertility of the soil, and the immense po-
pulation, gives such great advantages to Bengal over every
othertountry of the globe, that the sugar exported from
Calcutta, after a passage of 5,200 leagues, is still lower
at New York than the Jamaica sugar, which comes only
from a distance of 860 leagues. This phenomenon will
View original not appear so astonishing to whoever considers, that ace
cording to Mr. Playfair (Statistical Breviary, 1801, pace
60), the price of labour in Bengal is as follows: a mere
labourer gains 12 shillings p. month; a porter15; a mae
son 183; a blacksmith or carpenter 221; au Indian sol-
dicr 20; all in the environs of Calcutta, reckoning the
nglish at25 French sous, and the rupee and two shil-
lings and sixpence—and who reflects that the sugar of
_Hiudostan is manufactured. by frce hands, while in the
W. I. Islands the price of negro labour is very high.—Ac-
cording to the curious information given by Mr. Bocks
ford, in his Indian Recreations, printed at Cale:tia, the
sugar cane is cultivated in Bengal, principal!y in the dis-
tricts of Peddapore, Zemindar, in the Delta of Godavery,
and on the banks of tbe river Elyseram, The plantations
are watered there, as is also customary in several parts of
Mexico, and in the valley of Guines, to the south-east of
she Havannah. In Bengal an acre yields 5,500 Ibs. of
Sugar; consequently the produce of the soil is twice as
great as that of W. I. islands, while the price of the free
Indian is almost three times less than that of anegro slave
in the islind of Cuba. | In Bengal six pounds of the juice
of the cane yields a pound of crystalized sugar, whic in
Jamaica eight pounds are requisite to produce the same
quantity of sugar. Cuonsidering the cane juice as a liquid
charged with salt, we find that in Bengal this liquid con.
tains 16, and in Jamaica 12 per cent of saccharine mat-
ter. Hence the sugar of the East Iudies is so low priced,
that the culttvator sells it at 4 and 4.fifths rupecs the
quintal, which is nearly the third of the value of that
commodity in the Hiavaunah market. Although the cule
tivation of the sugar cane is spreading with astonishing
rapidity in Bengal, the total produce is still much less than
that of Mexico. Mr. Bockford supposes the produce of
Jamaica to be the quadruple of that of Bengal.
‘¢'The quantity of cutton which new Spain now supe
plies Europe annually, tho’ in itself very inconsiderable,
is, however, six times greater than that exported by the
United States, of their own growth in 1791, according
(o the information which I owe to the kindness of M.
Gallatin, Finance Minister at Washington, But the ra.
pidity of the increase of industry, among a free peopie
wiscly goverued, is so great, that according toa note fur.

From these date of Mr, Gallatin, it follows that the
produce of cotton has becomes 377 times greater in 12
years. When we consider the physical positions of the
United States and Mexico, we can hardly entertain a
doubt that these two countries will one day be enablid to
produoe all the ‘cotton employed in the manufactures of
Europe. The enlightened merchants who compose the
Chamber of Commerce of Paris, have asserted in a me.
