In my defence 1 have expressed a
wish that those who read the defence
of Commodore Barren will also read

quest you will publish with my defence
the enclosed evidence of the Com

Mud understood to have

interests of Great Britain have not
been compromised by any concession
of ours on this important point.

Consequence of a private but positive j
communication, that an order had

embargo all Ameri IsatCha

following morning.
Late last night a Portuguese officer '
arrived at South Audlcy street, with
the long expected and joyful intelli
gence of the safe arrival oi the Prince .
f Portugal at Babaia, on the j
25th January ; and after n
thereabout a month,had sailed for the j
made several excursions into the sur
rounding country, and was present at
a gre.a hunting party at Cachoeira,
about fS leagues from Babaia. The
concourse of people from the interior
was incredible, and his royal highness,
with his usu.d affability, gave audience
to every one.
It appears that the Principe-Real
was separated in a gale of wind from
the rest of the squadron, and it was

The remaining persons of the royal
family had arrived al the Rio de Ja

Some details have just been receiv
ed from Spain, which are highly in
teresting, and which strongiy mark
the national feehn.
At Madrid, in the Plaza Maya,
I French troops were collect* d,
with artillery mounted, and every
other manifestation of hostile designs
against the inhabitants. It is staled,
that this force was successfully resist
ed by the populace, and that all ranks
| of persons united in publicly proclaim
ing their indignation at the conduct of
these intruders. When Murat ex
postulated with the people, lie observ
; ed, that his countrymen appeared not
to injure, but to protect ttie Spanish
people as friends; he was told that
weapons of war were not necessary
for the intercourse of friendship, and
that the valor of the .Spanish people
was equal to their own protection.
In another place a large body of
French tioops are said to have been
disarmed and deprived of their can-j
j non ; ihe people declaring that, if they
I came as friends they did not want can
■' non, and if as foes, ii was proper for
the Spaniards net to suiter them to have
A volunteer of Arragon is reported
to have been affronted by three of the
Mamelukes, two of whom he killed,
and wounded the other, but was at
length killed hims<
A man had been tried according lo
the short ceremonies of martial law,
for a robbery, and had been found
| guilty, lie was to undergo military
: execution ; the regiment was drawn I
'up Which was to inflict the punish->
' meat, and before he reached the ranks
jhe was rescued by the populace, who
[conducted him to the commander in
chief, and loudly demanded las libe
ration and pardon. Murat thought fit
to condescend to the wishes of liie ci
tizens, and the man was conveyed
away amidst loud acclamations.
The journey of the new king to I
line had produced an almost ge- /
I neral dissatisfaction, which was loudly
J expressed in the different pi
I through which he passed, it is
J that in one of his proclamations issued
'on Ids journey, he declared that but
: for Ihe beat assurances his royal |
son would be safe, he would not have
acquiesced in the invitation to go to
i Bayonne ; and that in the course of
lour or five days he shall, with the as
sistance of his good brother and ally,
sehle the affairs of Spain to the con
lent and joy of his subjects,.
This proclamation, which shewed
i that Bonaparte was to interfere in the
j affairs of the country, did not by any
j tneaus tend to quiet the people, and
loathe next day, 19th April, another
i was published, tin" people having as
! sembled in crowds round the new
king's residence at Vittorhju The
duke de f infantado addressed them,
and at last persuaded them to retiie,
though not without expressions of
much dissatisfaction. The new king,
;it is added, means to represent toßo
nap.u'le the antipathy the people have
lo the French tr to press
. immediate recall.
Meanwhile Catalonia has offered to
raise and maintain 160,000 men, for
the support of the new king, and An
dalusia 50,000. The C'ssiilbs have
; mot imitated the example of these two
provinces, and in Newcasiille the pub
lic opinion does not seem favorable to
the new monarch. It is feared that
i Spain wid be convulsed by the parti
sans of tne deposed King, and the new
king, for every one sees that the ab
dication of the former was a measure
iof compulsion, not of choice. In-
I deed it is reported that he himself
protested against it, and is gone to
! Bayonne, to interest Bonaparte in his
favor. Bonaparte the u.mrper himself
of the crown of one branch of the
Bourbons, will thus have a legitimate
1 sovereign belonging to another iranch
of the Bourbons pleading against his
son for having usurped his crown and
j dignity !
I But it is impossible not to fear and
feel thai these disturbances may be
detrimental rather than beneficial to
Spain, and that Bonaparte may take
.nag.: of them, to fix his yoke
more firmly upon her neck*—That he |
.ssist her in renderi If-in- i
surd ;
to suppose—-that he will withdraw hi*
troops, because they are hated by the
Spaniards, it were impossible tv be
lieve.—Partial successes indeed the
Spaniards may have had against IsO
lated bodies of French troops, but ir !
regular and undisciplined valor can
effect but little against them when
their force is united and concentred.
We wait with anxiety for the full de
veldpement of Bonaparte's plans and
