r ■ vujoi o »ALL.-The Steamboat Kentucky
Ji_ will be offered at public sale, with her inventory
and appurtenances, on Friday, t „ oth day of June, at
1 o clock, P. M., at the Exchange, in tliis city, in pur
suance of a decree made at the last September term, by
Baltimore county court, sitting as a court of equity.
The Kentucky is, in all respects, one of the finest
steamboats in America; she was built of the best mate
rials, and in beauty of model, strength, speed, and con
venience of accommodations, combined, she is not sur
passed. She lias only run two seasons; is coppered and
copper fastened. Her dimensions are as follows : length
on deck 17.1 feet; breadth 24 feet; width of deck, includ
ing guards, 52 feet; depth 9 1-4 feet. She is about 400
tons burthen, and draws from 4 1-2 to 5 feet water. Her
two boilers, which are of the best of copper, are each 18
feet long, 9 1-2 feet wide, 1) feet high, and cost upwards
of twenty thousand dollars. She has two first-rate steam
engines, made by Watchman & Bralt, the cylinders of
which arc ;it» inches in diameter, with !) 1-2 ll-et stroke,
the cost oi which was above twelve thousand dollars.
1 lie decks ol the Kentucky, both main and upper,are
very spacious; her cabin occupies the whole length of
the boat, and is w ithout berths, as she was built for a da/
boat, but there is abundance of room for a large number.
I he ladies cabin is on deck, is very tastily fitted lip, and
contains every convenience, with 12 berths. So spa
cious and well arranged is this boat, that a thousand pas
sengers would not be deemed a crowd on board of her.
Her paddle wheels were put in new- last year, the first
set not being deemed large enough to consume the pow
er of her machinery; they nre double wheels, 20 feet *>
inches in diameter, 11 Ibet 0 incites broad, and are as
perfect now, so strongly and judiciously are they put to
gether, as they were when first put in, allhougli they >du
the whole of last season.
The Furniture ot the Kentucky is ample, well selected
and in good condition. Her inventory comprises every
article usually employed in steamboats of the first class;
her boilers and engines may be considered perfect. She
requires no repairs whatever, and is in complete readi
ness for use.
The Kentucky cost between eighty and ninety thou
sand dollars, and the important works added to her last
year, which have probably made her the strongest boat
of her class in the Union, have increased her value, in
the estimation of the best judges, upwards often thou
sand dollars. She should be well examined to l»o duly
1'he terms of sale, as prescribed by the decree, arc one
third cash, and the balance in equal parts, in two, lour,
and six months, secured by notes with endorsers, to !«•
approved by the Trustee.
Q.j' 'flic sale is peremptory,of which all persons will
take notice. SAMUEL M’CLEDLAN, Trustee.

One third cash, one third in six, and the balance in 12
months—-the two latter payments to he secured by a
Deed of Trust. 'The Land will be shown to any person
by Mr. Shcppersnn, living on it—and I will attend every

Loniion, April 18.
Lord Melbourne rose und said—My Lords, I tise to
address your Lordship*, lor the purpose of informing
you that hi* Majesty has been pleased to appoint me the
First Lord of the Treasury, anil that this day l anil my j
Colleagues have received the appointments to our re
spective offices With respect to the difficulties under
which the Administration has been lormed, und great
und many have they been, some indeed of a peculiarly -
severe and mortifying nature, it is not now my busi- j
ness to say any thing; nor, indeed, need 1 nay more of .
the principles upon which that Administration has
been constructed, than that they* are those principles j
ot reform and econoinyu which have been to a very ;
great extent admitted and confirmed by nil those who
profess to be the true friends of the country, and of j
that kind ol reformation which seeks to be strength
ened and established by the good wishes of the peo- :
pie at large. In reference to those particular sub
jects which lately engrossed the attention of Par- j
liamcnt, and have been alluded to by some Noble
Lords on the other side,— 1 mean those measures
which relate to Lcclesiasticnl Government,—allow
me to inform your Lordships, and therefore through
your Lordships, to tell the country', that every measure :
contemplated in reference to that subject, will have Un
it* end and tturpose the promotion of true piety through
out the whole and every part of lus Majesty s dominions.
1 hose are all the observations which I shall make on the
[•resent occasion. In the pressing hurry under which '
those arrangements have been framed, 1 apprehend that
all the formal business has not been brought before the (
House of Parliament.' And, in order that that should be
finished, it ha* been necessary for that House to udjourtt i
to Monday next. Should your Lordships think lit to
pursue that course, and that it appeals necessary to meet 1
on Monday next, I shall be prepared to make that mo- ,
tion ; but, it not, 1 shall move the adjournment of the
House to .May 12. I apprehend, under all the circum
stances of the case—considering the great pressure of
business that remains to be transacted, and those who ;
ore to conduct the business in the other House, cannot
be in their place* that day—that your Lordships will not
think the 12tli of May too long an adjournment I shall,
therefore, move that this House, at it* rising, do adiourn .
toTuesdav. the 12th of Mav.
I he ilukc ni Richmond thought it was impossible that
their Lordships could adjourn for so long n period, lie ;
would suggest that their Lordships do udjourn to the i
3ltth inst., with tint umier.-.tandmg that no public business i
be transacted until the liitli May. It would be necessa
ry to swear witnesses to be examined before the Com- <
in it tee °t Secondary Punishments; and he therefore '
moved that their LorJshipsdo adjourn to the 30th in *t.
Lord Alvanley, (we believe,) said he wished to put a ;
question to the noble Viscount before the motion of ad- |
journment was put. lie wished to know whether the 1
noble Viscount had or had not the powerful aid of Mr. ■
0 Connell and his party. (Cries of hoar, hear.) A 1
question like that, in ordinary times, might very well '
have been leA without an answer—but these were not
ordinary times. J lie same ministry when in power ;
only a few months ago had the most determined
opposition of that gentleman, and they, (the Min
islry,) denounced tin.* learned gentleman in the King's
speech in every thing but by name; therefore, he
now wished to know in what way and on what
terms they stood with the lion, and learned gentleman.
It was impossible to suppose Mr. O'Connell would have
withdrawn his opposition to that Administration, unless
he was to he pacified in some way.—(Hear, hear.) The
cause he asked the reason so early was, that the learned
gentleman only a few months ago, and for many months
before, had lost no opportunity in stating his opinions
with regard to the Repeal ot tin* Union, and the ncoessi- i
ty of the destruction ofthut House. The noble Lord t hen
referred to Mr. O 1 oimell s letters to Lord Duiieannon,
and some of his speeches in the Anti-Tory Association!
He said tiiat such language was not to be considered as
mere words ot course, when coming from such a quarter—
coming, as they did, from the powerful, honorable aud.
learned gentleman, they were pregnant with meaning;,
and he considered that the noble \ iseounl, under all
circumstances, was hound to afford the House all the in
formation in their power.
Lord Brougham—I wish to know if there was ever_
Lord Alvnuley—1 merely put u question to the noble
lord, Melbourne.
Lord Broughalrt—rA.nd that is the very reason 1 an
swer it.—(Carers and crteV tif-'vTdcr?1) ~~ “
Lord Kenyon rose to order. The quostion had been
pin to the noble and learned lord. Did the noble and
learned lord rise to order?
Lord Brougham.—Most undoubtedly.—According to
the strictest limns of the house, 1 am right in speak
ing to order. How does the nohle lord know that 1
did not mean to ground n motion upon the course
taken by the noble lord (Alvanley)? 1 interrupted
that nohle lord to call him to order; but when I
• understood the noble lord that he had done.
I In i. I sMwha|^>! call him to order, but 1 craved
pennission^^^^^^b. friend, MeU>om^^oa)low
noble Lorr^^^^^^^br irregularity
ed in this house—(Hear.) The measures of the
meat will show what course my noble friend has taken*.
Did any one ever hear of a Minister being called upon
to teli whom the King meant to appoint to office, or w hat
arrangements were in progress with a certain individual,
or whether that individual had been gained over to the
government? 1 advise my learned ami noble friend not
to sanction such questions by giving them an answer.
Lord Wicklow insisted that his' noble friend, Lord
Alvanley, was perfectly justified inputting this question,
and the noble and learned Lord's, Brougham's, rising to
order in this unprecedented manner was a most disor
derly proceeding.
Viscount Melbourne—Perhaps the Noble Lord was not
greatly out of order in putting this question; hut, at the
Hame time, I think that the Noble Lord might have put
the question in plainer terms, und not accompanied his
question with n greater number ot observations than is
usual. The Noble Lord asks me, how far I coincide in
opinion with Mr. O’Connell? 1 do not at nil coincide
with him in opinion, (loud cheers.) It is impossible for
any question to receive a simple answer. The Noble L >rd
also asks me whether 1 entertain the same opinions
w hich 1 did on a former occasion, which I apprehend to
be, when the Coercion Act was under consideration? 1 an
swer him tiiat I certainly do i ntcrtniu the same opinions,
and tiiat I nerservere in them. (Hear, and cheers.)’
1 lie Nohle Lord also asks me whether 1 have taken any
means to secure tin- assistance of Mr O'Connell, and up
on what terms? I do not know whether I have the as
sistance of Mr. O'Connell <>i not; but I say most distjnob
lv that 1 have taken noineana to secure it; (Cheers,) and
1 most particularly state, that 1 have entered- into-no
term* whatever, or have said ny thing, from whiohany
inference can be drawn in order to secure dial indivi
dual s support. To the noble Lord’s question, therefore,
l given most decided negative; and if he has been told’
any thing to the contrary, lie has been told what is false,
anil without foundation. (Cheers.1
riu- Duke of Buckingham trusted that the Uoum and
the people would he disabused of the impression that was
abroad relative to the imputation that had heeu east upon
the present Government, of desiring to conciliate Mr.
U Connell. The noble Viscount had distinctly slated
the same principles would be voted upon ns be pursued i
before, when the Church (Question was under consider- !
ation, and that he was still determined to promote the
interests and extend the usefulness of piety and true re
ligion. Every one knew the cause which compelled his
Majesty's late Government tore.ign—namely, the prin- j
cipb; of appropriating Church property to secular par* |
poses. He (the Duke of Buckingham) begged, there- j
fore, to a<U the noble Viscount (Melbourne) distinctly 1
and emphatically, whether he was pie pa red to bring for- I
ward a measure for relief from the grievances from the '
Irish Tithe System, and appropriating the snrplus reve- I
nuc to other than religious purposes.
I-ord Melbourne -It is premature logo into this dis- I
cussiott at present, for if we enter once upon it, we must
tnko it up ns a whole measure, nod so consider it. This
would be a most inconvenient coarse now to pursue; but
I have no hesitation in declaring to the noble Duke, that
I hold myself hound, and pledge myself to act npon the
principle of the resolution adopted by the House of
Commons. The noble lord made this statement with pe- !
culiar emphasis, which crested s great sen-ration in the
House, and was received with loodrlmers.
The Marnuhtof f-ondonderry felt himself bound at the
Eresent crisis, charged, a« he was, with a petition signed
y (10,000 Protestantsof the north oflrelancl, to trxtke a few
observations on the present occasion, as he felt this duty
more incumbent upon him, when he saw who was at the
head of his Majesty's Government, and considered the
opinions and sentiments that had been announced as their
Intentions respecting the appropriation of Chnreh proper
ly. Under the ei re nm stance*, however, lie begged to give
notice, that on Thursday, after the recess, he would,
with iiit* ptimialoik of the House, pmeot tins petition
■> tilt ir Lordship*, if he was to go further, and follow the
example of the noble Marquis opposite, in commenting
upon the competency of a Ministry, Jbc might ask whe
.|U r * V*8l‘ "'h«> hud obtained and held ollice only upon
tin- toi bcarance of the Conservatives, or by the delusive
promises held out to Mr. O’Connell, were competent to
c irry ori the Government? He was glad to hear from
the Noble V iscount that he had given a veto to O'Connell
and his rudicnl crew. (A laugh.)
\ iscount Melbourne said, that he had never used the
word \eto, what he said was, that he had taken no inenns
to secure the assistance of Mr. O’Connell, nor had he
o>!*< r*i ®ny terms with him. (Inercused cheering.)
i lus lie would positively say, he had never used tTie
worn veto.—T lie Marquis of Londonderry explained.—
Me was sure that any Ministerial connection with Mr.
Connell, or his tail, would be the curse of the country.
AllJOl'Rtf M ENT Of THE UUl'ir.
Lord Melbourne observed, willi respect to the adjourn
nient ol the House, he had no objection to the adoption
ot (he course which w as proposed by the noble Duke on
the cross benches, (Richmond,) provided it was under
stood that no public business was to be lakeu before the
12th of May.
o,iVU .^yUlle then adjourned, as we understood, to the
301 h ot April.
Hoi sr or Commons—the i.ate Ministry —Sir Ro
bert 1 eel entered the House at ten minutes past four
o clock. He first proceeded to the Ministerial side, but
imirwui&tciy afterwords crossed over, and look his seat
on the Opposition side of the House. As soon as the
members who supported the Right Honorable Baronet *
Atkinniatnation, and who were still sitting on the Min
isterial side of the House, perceived this, they gradually
left the House, and upon their return, took their seats
on the Opposition benches. For about half an hour tl
J*\r R’e House presented a very curious appearance,
the treasury bench and those immediately behind it
were altogether unoccupied, while the Opposition side
presented « dense mass of Whigs, Tories, and Radicals,
mingled “in most admired disorder.” A few of the
Stanley section still retained their seats, and with these
we observed the Marquis of Chaudos and Sir Robert
the new ministry.
. At twenty-three minutes past five, Mr. F. Haring en
tered the House, followed by a large numlicr of mem
—thu House was instantly in commotion—those of
the Reformers, who had taken their sents on their old
side, moving over to the Ministerial side amidst loIHr—
cheers. Mr. O Connell took his seal at the lower end of
the Ministerial Bench.
New Writs.
New writs were then moved for elections in the vari
ous districts rendered vacant by the appointments to the
new Ministry.
i lie Rill ol Indemnity i* at length passed, principal,
interest, ami all, in exact compliance with the Treaty*
but accompanied with a condition, which, if it be any "
Uiing inure than mere i- rencli gasconading. puls the pros
pect ol restitution to this country lor the outrage* lone
since committed on our commerce further olf than ever
lhe l resident of the United States, it will Ik seen, is
required to make an apology to France for the terms of
las last annual message, be tore w« can be paid our just
and too long deferred debt! Me is to offer a satislaito
ry explanation ! Uc is to refine away all that true re
publican grit, which it seems mode his conuminica
tion to Congress too rough for the delicate nerves of
irncliiucn. He in to eiinuculate hit* proposition of
reprisals ol all its virility, and go on his knees and
beg pardon for daring to intimate that, if further in
stilled by 1-ranee again refusing to perform her viola
ted promise, it would become the duty of America to
take the redress of her grievances into her own hands
and pay herself her admitted claim. This is the .rr.......f
on winch the French Government dcuJRSson expbuin
lion ol the I resident of the United Slates, as the condi
tion on iiluuli she will pay her too long deferred debt.
U Geu. Jockanu complies with tins condition, we have
in ach niistaken the character uud temper of thul heroic
nian. And we have much mistaken the spirit of the
American people, if they would not cast him off from
their. alluOtions lor so doing, deeply fixed as he is in the
hearts ol lux countrymen. The very proposition by
r rauco is an additional insult, and compliance with it
would be degradation fur greater, than would have been
a year ago, Uie total remission of the debt due from that
Buniirrfr-kjjot the slightest reason to apprehend that
this insolent deimiiuTwillin any degree. b« complied with,
it tin- Trcsidcnt makes any cTmumuiication at all on the
subject, it will be one Which France may ImnsnTtT'trft—
apology or explanation, if she pleases, but which will
receive a very contrary interpretation Irom all the rest of
Uie world 1 he truth is, no explanation is expected.—
lhe Whole proposition is a mere last ineffectual splutter
to ti.ru attt-uiu.ii from the sorry altitude in which tho
r rcncli Government has placed itself by its had faith
and by lending a too credulous ear to the representations
®* 5*l-.be1,,ir“r and others, that the United Slates might
be lobbed oti, Irom time to time, us long as it suited the
Pleasure o! France to temporise, 'lhe energetic nus
ol General J-ftvimon rudely awakened dial Govern
ment from its delusion. They suddenly i., ^ 4. ia ;/- itj^y
were dealing with an Aaliiiinistration which would “ask
nothing that was not clearly right, and subinit to no
thing tnat was wrong. They saw that this Administra
tion possessed the unbounded aoufidence of a vast ma
jority of the American people, and that its noble rule of
action in Its foreign relations met with their cordial ap
proval. I hey saw that there was a fixed determination
on the pattot this Government and this people to obtain
our just and acknowledged debt from France, “peacea
bly 11 we could, forcibly if we must.” Seeing this, lhe
tone of 1- ranee was at once wonderfully lowered, and the
silly measures of bravado that Government has adopted
to hide its real sentiments mid motives of action do but
add to the ludicrousness ol the unfortunate posture in
which it has placed itself. The United States will get
the indemnity, principle and interest in full, according
to the Treaty negotiated by Mr. Rives; nrnl France will
get no apology—nothing bearing even such a remote re
semblance to one, that it can lie palmed off upon the
world as such by all the vaunting and gasconnding of
sputtering Frenchman. To such luckless straits n na
tion is reduced that has not sense enough of right to re
deem its faith, nor might enough to mumtaiu its perfidy.
The Bill of Indemnity, it will be seen, was passed by
a vote of Sirilt to 1B7. 3

(From the Tiro**.]
In the French Chamber of Deputies on Thursday last,
then* was a regular debate for the first time since the in
troduction of the amended hill relative to the American
claim. M. Thiers, the Minister of tbe Interior, spoke
at great length in answer to M. Rcrrycr'a speech of the
orevioum day. M. lierryer replied, and the Duke cl.*
Broglie undertook to refute some of the arguments used
by M. Uerrysr in bis reply. IMher members took part in
the discussion, which, on account of the exclusion of
written speeches, was unusually animated, and protract...
cd till the late hour of 7.
The ground on which M. lierryer hn>l taken his stand
was not such as to prove tenable, notwithstanding nil
that his powvr-j of ontory had been able to make of it,
and the patient hearing which the Chamber, most incon’
"latently with its restless and petulant habits, gave him
lor three whole hours lie had set out with the assump
tion that the Berlin and Milan drerec* had been ren
dered unavoidably necessary by the fosev of circum
stances; and that being, as lie conceived, isdinitted, he
inquired whether the cases which gave rise to the Ame
rican claims under consideration, did not originate in i%
violation by the American Vessels of the provisions of
those decrees. M. Berryes labored to show that they
dul so originate, by going through the bbtory of several
cases, winch certainly justified Ijs view of their merits
but he left out n very great number of others, which were
unquestionably entitled to indemnity. No Government
in France, since the claims were brought forward, ever
admitted the whole to he satisfactorily proved. Hence it
is, that the amount of indemnity from nearly IIM(,(KKit0()0
(fanes, that the original estimate of the losses had been
raised to, ban undergone reductions at almost every ex
aniinatiouof accounts, and ultimately fixed at one-fourth,
which was the lowest value (hot the United Htntes Go
vernment thought itself justified in assenting to.
The debale on Thursday referred entirely to the par
ticnUvsof the eases which were admissible or ought to
be rejected. Very few material facts, therefore, were
brought to light besides those wbieU were summarily
stated in the committee's report, which gave an abstract
Home rbty* ago.
