seized upon the Government from which his want of faith
towards his late Sovereign had removed him, and in the
execution of his purpose put to death the frst Minister of
his Government; an Otlicer, whose office and person were
solemnly protected in all the existing engagements, and
until his time, had been held inviolate. ‘The British Go-
verninent, with a tender respect for his advanced age, his
high rank, and supposed misfortunes, were willing to
make a new trial of his conduct, and on his expressing a
contrition for his past offences, even confirmed him in the
throne he had presumed to usurp.
Scarcely, however, was he restored to power, when he
caused to be assissinated the father of that Minister with
whose blood he had recently stained his hands—a dlame.

dered to be strangled seven of the highest and most respec.
table chiefs of the country without even an alledged oflence ;

detected in arguing with the Court of the Svofoonau, in
violation of the most solemn aud important eugagement
of all the treaties, with the avowed object of uudermining
aud subverting the British Suprimary in Java.
By such conduct, inimical to the peace, good governs

the Sultan has displayed to the world, how uaw urthy he
is of (fe high and important Trust which'the British Go-

Again—Is this restitu(ion of the English prisoners a
proper thing ?—-those who had sv impudently attempted
the dignity of the King, and vivlated his territory ? Restore
without any satisfaction! not so, Muusieur de
Cadore? [The Minister, all in tremulation, did not omit
replying afirmatively to this as well as to some other fimilar
questions.] Another violation of territorial right is the
capture of a French privateer in the interior of the port
of Stralfund ; but to me, nothing has been rendered !
It is not to one’s friends that one shews these little atten.

you never could have been better friends to the English
than at this moment. Oh! oh! it is you that tell me so!
It is you who assure me that Sweden wishes rather to re.

Two Gentlemen, Mr. Auran Nicholas, and Mr. J. B.
Smithson, have lately arrived in England with the much-
admired bas reliefs at Ephesus, supposed to have belong-
ed to the celebrated Temple of Diana, and consisting of
(bree parts, viz.—
View original First—The lamentation of Achilles for the death of his
friend Patroclus, whose body is borne before him,
Second—The body of //ector fastened to the Car of
Achilles, aud ol Priam turning away and weeping at the
sight of the body of his beloved son,
Thisd—The lamentation of Andromache and two fee
male attendants, mouraing over the body of Hector, and
Astanax taken away by Ulysses, from his mother An-
The whole containing 26 human figures and 2 horses,
of the finest and most ancient Grecian sculpture.
Mr. Nicholas has procured those marbles with consider.
able risk, trouble, and expence, haying early in the year
1811 gone to dificrent parts of the Archipelago and Con
stantinople, to obtain the best advice and assistance in this
object. He found that several English, German, and
French travellers had failed in their attempts to procure
them, even with the aid of a Firman from the Grand
Seignior. He determined, however, to persevere at all
hazards, and went to the Aga; or Commandant at Ephe-
sus, in order to bribehim, when he told him that nothing
but an order from Cara Osman Oglu, the Governor of
Anatolia, should induce him to allow them to be taken
downu.—Mr. Nicholas then went to Cara Osman Oglu,
and becoming well acquainted with him, applied for leave
to carry olf the bas-reliefs from Bohesus. He reusd for
some time, and said that several travelless had already af-
fered him large sums for them, but compticd at length
with Mr. Nicholas’s entreaties, telling him at the suce
line, that the inhabitants would rise against him. With
this order Mr. Nicholas returned to Ephesus, and em.
ployed 50 men to take themdown, which he accom) ish.
ed with great ditheulty, and meeting with constant ob.
struction from the inhabilants, who imagined that he was
searching for some concealed treasure, and was therefore
under the necessity of distributing. a cunsideyable sum of
money amougst them. He had then to make carts to be
drawn by builaloes to the sea side. where he had them
safely shipped in a mall vessel which be had hired at Sca.
la Nova, and proceeded to Smyrna. He had no sooner
arcvived at the latter place, than he had new difiicultics to
contend wits, sume of Bona, arte’s agents trying by faic
and unfair means to get them fromhim, and at length ob.
tained, through the iuterest of the French merchants at
Constantinople, an order from the Grand Seignior to stop
(hem. Me. Nicholas had fortunately secretly shipped
them Chere theee days before the arrival of this order, and
conveyed them to the iland of Matta.
