V 7 HEREAS The Berbice Gazette of the 29th.
May last, did contain a leng and libellous
paragraph upon the subject of Mr. Bent’s appoint-
ment as Receiver and Manager of alien properties a!
Surinam, studiously calculated to excite dissatisfac-
tiun in the minds of His Majesty's subjects, and ap-
pearing from the channel thro’ which it obtained
publicity, to derive a sanction for such a feeling as
well as by its falsity tending to mislead the ignorant
or unwary.—
I dodeei it no less a duty which I owe to the In-
habitants now committed to my jurisdiction, who
might be led into error by the above offensive publi-
cation, than to the King my Master, who is pleased
to repose sueb a trust in me, and at whose Govern-
ment it was levelled; to declare, that altho’. this co-
lony has experienced the mild sway of His Majesty’s
arental Government alone, since it sttrreridered to
his arms, and that the terms then granted to the co-
Jonists until his pleasure should be signified, have
remained unaltered, that it is névertheless within
his conipetence atid Royal prerogative to make such
changes in the Constitution of his Conquests, as he,
may judge necessary, without any reference what-
ever to his Parliament; and that itis the effect of
1¢ Conqueror’s clemency or of his wisdom, that in
lis his conquest, the former Usages and Laws are
continued until circumstances arise to make the a-
doption of others necessary : of which His Majesty’s
Loyal and Dutiful Subjects are required to take due
holice, and govern themselves accordingly.

to say any thing further about our Packet.--Some ves.

_ From the late knglish Papers.
We understand that it is intended to confer the honors
of the Peerage, with appropriate pensions, upon Sir T.
Graham, and Sir R. Hill, for their distinguished conduct
in the late battles,
The loss of the French in the Glorious Victory of Vit-
toria, was unknown to our immortal Hero, Wellington,
but it was understood by his gallant Aid-de-Camp, Major
I'reemantle, that since the commencement of the opera-
tions, not less than 20,000 men had perished or been ta-
ken. ‘T'woFrench Generals were prisoners at Vittoria,
when the Major passed thro’ that town on his way to
England. and it was stated by them that 8 Generals had
been taken, wounded, or killed.
A number of dispatches have been received from Officers
in the Mediterranean and Adriatic; detailing a variety of
very gallant exploits by the crews and marines of our crui-
sers on thosse statious, particularly those of the Berwick ,
and Euryalus, who took and destroyed 23 vessels, and a
ship of war; those of the invincible who spiritedly co-
operated in an. enterprize with a Spanish force; those of
theeV olontaire and Repulse, who gallantly cut out anum-
ber of vessels ; those of the Apollo, who, with a detach-
ment of troops uuder Col. Robertson, captured thre Is-
land of Augusta; and several other enferprizes of minor
descriptions, by other ships.
Major-Gen. Dalaval has proceeded to Trinidad to take
the command of the truops stationed there, in the room of
Lieut.-Gen. Munro, who is about to return to Euro,e.

Addressed to His Royal Highness the Duke of Sussex,
in consequence of his Speech at the Dinner given to
the Catholic Delegates.
Sin—You have forced into discussion a question, which
honester Lawyers and wiser Statesmen than your ivy al
flighness takes into your Councils, bave deprecated and
avoided. For tits imprudeuce, your elder brother, the
Regent, will give you little thanks; though, happily, tus
principles aud his measures disarm the question of all its
present mischief. Let us hope, Sir, that the time biay
never arrive, When onr lineal safety shall be exchanged for
collateral danger; that the plume which now waves on
gur Regents head shall never be cast by your hand into
the **seale;?and that Englishmen shall never again be ur-
ged to restore its balance by a Kevolution.—By what right
does your Royal Iighness, stending at the distance of se-
ven degrees from the throne, prescribe to Englishmen the
measure of their allegiance, and slander the principles of
the Revolution as treasonable ? Are you alone conpetent
to decide on the Jaws of the jand, the obligations of your
father’s Crown, or the duties of his subjects? Has any
distant anticipation raised a contingent reversion into a
vested possession? Is your prospective interest so closely
approximated, or ts your fraternal anxiety so affection.
ately excited, that you should demand from Englishmev
an unconditional allegiance to your Father’s Throne and
to your Brother’s Government ?-—Fear not, Sir, for the
Regent. His vindication of those principles which com.
mitted the scepter to his House, his maintenance of the re-
ligion and liberties of Britain, secure to him our allegi-
ance as strongly as if it were his unconditional right.—
Fear not, Sir, for yourself. Your title is yet too remote
to need our consideration; and possibly we shall never
be visited with an occasion for discussing the conditions
of our al.egiance or of your Sovereignty.—Sir, it very
ill becomes a Prince of your House to advance .so wild a
claim. Neither your Father nor your elder Brother did
ever put it forward; and, had any one been so mischicv-
ous to dio them that ill office, they would have silenced the
impradent assertor. Of your Father, I may now speak
as of the honored dead ;—of that departed virtue, to which
the praise of man is indifierent while it pierces not the
grave.—Of our Regent, 1 will net incur the charge of
View original adulation, But T willinsist, that hey, to whom uncon.
ditional allegiance might have safely been given; did never
require it. Conditional allegiance was sufficient for So.
vervigns who had no wish of infriuging its condition ;—
uncond.tional allegiance can be demanded only by Tye
rau(s in possession or expectancy, preditermined to vioe
fate his own compact, and to compel the sublnission of the
people. low long docs your Royal Highness calculate
that the Members of the Whig Club, the successors and
disciples of Fox, the posterity of the Revolution Peers,
‘*the descendants of the Russells, the Cavendishes, and the
Somers,’”? would abandon the nation and support the des-
pot?—You may chafe, Sir, and your high dignity may be
offended ; but 1 will take the privilege of a Briton, aud
read you a lecture on the British Constitution, with which
you seem less conversant than with the dogma of the Pos
pish Church, or the advantages of your own Protestant
Royalty. You say, that you know the principles which
placed your family on the throne Whence comes it, Sir,
that your pride has conquered your recolicction? W hy
compel us to inform you, that our ancestors did not
change their dynasty for the mere pleasure of the
change, or for the personal preference of one family
to another? Sir, despite of my attachment to your
Brother, and my veucration for your Father, you oblige
me to repeat to you amost uncourtly lesson; one which
you wii pever hear from your Popish Parasites, until EB.
manci, ation shall have aceomplished the separation of Ire.
land, and the restoration of the Stuart race.——that the Pros
testant Estabiishment was the end of the Revolution, while
the Hanoverian succession was but its means. Dispute this
position, and you dispute the Act of Settlement, dhe Title
Deedof your Estate, which secures the Crown in y our Fae
mil), **peinc Protestant,” but which excludes any one
ofits Members who should liberalize his conscience into Po.
pery. In this event, which 1 expect that you will tell me
is impossible, the succession must pass by Royal Convert,
aud, as your admirer, Mr. Whitbread, says ‘‘light upor
the head”? of the neat heir werne'a Protestant; unless,
indeed, you shall insist that our conditional allegiance can.
not be withd.awn from the violator of the condition.-Sir,
your hiscorical researches into the ara of the Revolution,
with which your Royal Highness’s interest in our British
annals commences,and your poleinic inquiries into theC reed
of Catholicism, must have taught you that tyranny and
Popery have been alway» concurrent; thata Tyrantis ge.
nerally a Papist, and that a Papist 1s alwaysatyrant; that
the Stuarts always vindicated Popery, and that Popery al.
ways vindicated the Stuarts. Ltis not therefore astunishiug,
that the advocate of unconditional submission to the Papists
should insist on unconditional allegiance to the Sovereign.
But we may still wonder, that the example of James Stuart
should be so speedily forgotten : of that misguided Duke,
who suyported Popish Emancipation and unconditional
allegiance ;-—the one to relieve his conscience from the act
of uniformity, and the other to protect his inheritance from
the Bull of eaclus.on, In Engiand Sir, as in a neighbouring
State, we have witnessed the dangerous interference of the
ikoyal Dukes. One ruined his own accession and created
a Revolution 5 auuther overtarned the crown of his family,
and cicated a rebellion, Never, Sir, may a Prince of your
Royal House 0 casion to his country the same ealamity,
or to himself the same retribution,

LocnurapD, v. Facncy anp Grant.
Mr. Lochhead was appointed to the charge of superin.
tendant of His Majesty’s Botanical Garden in this Island,
by a Warrant from the Secretary at War, dated in August
last, and arrived in this Colony to occupy his situation im,
October. His Excellency Sir C. Brisbane, the Governor,
by and with the advice of his Privy Council, was pleased
to suspend Mr. Lochhead from his situation, in January,
and very soon after, by his own proper authofity, as far
we know, to supersede Mr. Lochhead by appointing in
his place J. F. Grant, Esq. one of the defendants, as ape
peared by the following notification inour Gazette of the
13th Feb. :—
“Government House, St. Vincent, 12th Feb. 1813.
“ His Excellency the Governor has been pleased to appoint John
Francis Grant, Esq. Superintendant of His Majesty’s Botanical Gar-
den, until the pleasure of kis Royal Highness the Prince Regent shali
be made known, By his Excellency’s command,
“Anton WARNER, See?’
View original Mr. Lochhead refused to leave the Garden, and the’
house belonging to the establishment, unless obliged to do
so. The Commanding Ojlicer here was applied to, we
understand, but declined interfering on one side or the
other—Mr. French, one of his Majesty’s Council, and,
consequently a Magistrate, took upon himself to dispos-
sess'Mr. Lochhead, by going to the Garden with a Con.
stable, and using those means which the law calls forcible
dispossession, or forcible entry ; the other Defendant, Mr.
Grant, was in company, and had previously written to Mr.
Lochhead, to say, that having been appointed to the place
of Superintendant of his Majesty’s Botanical Garden, he
wished to entcr upon his duty, and to take possession of
the premises as carly as possible, being obliged to leave
the house where he then was for a few days.—The fol-
lowing Jury were impannelled after a multiplicity of re.
jections on the parts of the Defendants, but vot a single
one on tho part of the Plainuill:—
James Higgins, Esq. Foreman; Alex. Cruikshank,
Thomas Patterson, J. W. Carmichael, W. Ilepburn, J.
Nichoil, James Cruikshank, F. W. Ward, John Luke,
H. Hackshaw, A. Cuthbert, and Isaac Barker, Esqrs.
It is impossible for us to do any thing like justice to
the very able and cloquent speech in which Mr. Keane.
opened and pleaded the case on behalf of the Plaintill, but
we may briefly attempt to give the leading points of his
arguments :—
He began by saying, that it would be the extreme of'
affection to presuppose that the Jury were ignorant of
thenature of the cause which they were now to try, for
that the public voice and sentinient had been so loudly and
So strongly expressed already, and the impression made on
the public mind was stil] so warin, as to leave no doubt of
the earnest attention with which the Jury were prepared
to hear it.—Ilis doubt was only whether he should be able
on his part, to gratify their indulgence, and meet the pu-
blic expectation in the manner he wished.’ Whatever his
deficiency, there should be found none in the zeal which
he possessed to do justice to his client, and the cause he
had undertaken. Llis zeal should vot be of that kind which
would avail itself of the notoriety he had alluded to, or of
any popular ferment, but of a true and loyal zeal fo- the
cause of truth and justice, the law of the land, and the
liberty of the subject. Both he and his client abhorred
the discordant aud opposite principles of revenge and jus-
tice being blended together, nor did they suppose that such
a monstrous combination would influence the verdict of
the Jury. Asa proof of his moderation, he necd only
Say, that this cause might have been brought on at a much
earlier period than the present, when the public indigna.
tion was recent and high, and when any quantum of da.
mages would not have been considered exorbitant, or per-

Surprise and indignation to pass away, and waited till it

and upright mauner in which he wished lo view the cause
now before them, he had refused to sign or even to sue any
Papers or proceeding which might prejudge the case; it
could not therefore be supposed that he had a wish to
work on the prejudices of others. With this he might
contrast the conduct of the adverse party-——Uheir cabals,

To identify the lawles outrage committed on his Client

given him, as it would allow him to enter thus generally
into all proceedings, instead of confining himself to the
issue as a mere matter of trespass by individuals. He cer-
tainly, if he chose, might treat it as any other simple ac.
fion of trespass between individuals, for weither of the
Defendants was charged, in the declaration field, as a
Magistrate; the Defendants themselves, through their

was nothing on the record which could render it other
than an individual ease of trespass, and the Jury conld

might benecessary,j— «tin a sinall community like this it
was superfluous. ‘The Plaintiff, however, was a stranger
—he was present: he was one to whom some delicasy was
due, as he was no glutton of flattery. He would leave
the Jury to conjecture what he was, by stating only what
‘he was not. He was not a mischievous political scribbler
‘(as reported), for he never had, by any ribaldry of his
insulted the character, or disturbed the peace of socicty.
He was not a libeller, for he had not anonymonsly, or
otherwise, attacked any man’s character. He was not, in
short, any thing but what an honest man ought to be,
and should wish to be. Such a character for his Client,
were it necessary, he could support by the testimony of a
dozen witnesses then present. It was well known to lhe
Community, that the Plaintiff was called from ‘Trinidad
by the late respectable Doctor Anderson, to take the
charge of his Majesty’s Botanic Garden iu this colony,
and recommanded by him as his successor. Having twice
come over for that purpose, as long as his duty in Trini-
dad allowed him, and no appointment having during that
time arrived from the War Office, he was under the ne-
cessity of returning tv that colony. His warrant having
at last arrived, he came to St. Vincent to his charge, which
he found occupied by Mr. Grant, one of the Detendaurs,
by the appointment of the President, and the approbation
of the Governor. As his Excellency had, in a letter to
the Plaintiff before his leaving Trinidad, declared, that he
considered him as the fittest person for such a charge, and
as it was a public charge of sume consequence, he certain.

mostinvariably been shewn by all former Governors, and
by Sir Charles himself, to the establishment aud its Super.

it his duty to make to oblige or to consiliate’ were so re-
ceived, that he ceased to repeat them, and confined him.

relired and inoffensive, that he thought himself complete.

Counsel), it seems it was not so ;—premeditated mischief

Suspicious dogged him at the outset.—IHle had allowed the
manager ofa neighbouring plantation to take away four
the copper-holes or the stills, some of the saperHuous and
useless wood, which he wished the garden clear of, and a
domestic to sell some Malacca apples, which were falling
from the trees and rotting on the ground. Would it be
believed that such ridiculous trifles were carefully stowed
in the Vice-royal mind to be brought forward in dread
array against the Plaintiff? ‘Lhe quarrel was previously
picked, systematic, and digested, and ready for the fiest
opportunity to burst out in all its fury ; it began by de.
ferring and a refusal to sign the Garden accounts, which
had been attested as usual; this brought ou a correspou.
dence, which he should now read to the Court. (Here
the Counsel read several notes and letters which had
passed on the occasion.) ** Now, Gentlemen,’ said he,
‘*y ou will see the reasons, why this premeditated quarrel
rypened invo such irreconcileableeumity, aud was followed
up by such unprecedented proceedings. ‘The Plaintifi had
unforvunately hinted at the depredations made in the Gar-
dey by cattle, said to belong to His Excellency, whose
ranges he had thought it his duty to contract, and had
accordingly commenced his labours by repairing or re.

was the consequence? The very first or second day after
(hese coriwunications were made,: His Excellency was
pleased to call an inspection of the Garden. What. the
object of that inspection was, may be easily guessed,
