Aa action on a policy of insurance on the ship William, at and Irom Hall to Naw - York ; it was effected by the plaint iff oo .. account of a person of the name of Towoshend, " resident in the Unit! State, nod subscribed by the defendant in the sum of 400. The facti were all stated ou Emissions ; the ahip tailed from Hall in ballast on the voyage insured la Dec. 1818, but was obliged to refit at Dover, in . coMcquence of striking upon a bank : on tht 19th Dec she spin proceeded on her voyage, - and sn the Win Feb. after Tery bad weather, it wss discovered that the main - mast was badly sprang ; on the next dav, the fore - yard, fore - tail, and top - sail were blown away, and the bowsprit i was sprung ; at the same time the ship was very leaky, and one pump was constantly kept at . - - work. On the 1 6th Feb. two vessels, called the Hyder Ali Bad Navigator, came in sight, and it was agreed on commuuication with the masters, that they should keep near the William during the night to render assistance u wanted. A squall however, in the evening, compelled the Navigator to abandon the William i but, on the 17th Feb. the captain of the Hyder Ali took the crew of the William on board his vessel ; at that timt the sailors who bad worked toe William were - quite exhausted, and both pomps could not keep Use water Mder. la the Hyder All there were : raany supernumerary American sailors, eight of Whom volunteered to risk their lives iu the William, in - the hope of reaching tome port of the United states and obtaining salvage : they sue eneded in caryiugher into Newport, in Rhode Island, where site was libelled, and a decree was pronounced; giving naif the value of the ship to the salvors. I he intelligence having reached Eoghod, the plaintiff abandoned to the under writers, but they refused to accept it, on the ground that the loss was ouly partial, and that . the William might have been easily repaired at Newport, in order to have completed her voyage to New - Tort; . It was admitted that the ship nad seen sold at Newport for JI4O0, or 315, - half of which sum was handed over to the eight A merinos, as salvage. The defendants paid into court a sum sufficient to cover a partial loo; and the question tmder the circumstances was, whether the lose was total or partial : if the former, the plaintiff would be entitled to a ver dict 1 u the latter, a nonsuit was to be entered Mr. Scarlett, on behalf of the plaintiff, said, that some modern cases seemed to have settled, that a sa.,i was not the subject of abandonment as long as the ccn' - d Heal : be retted the contrary position, pridi - iraUy on the authority of the case of M'ler v. Henderson (4 M. and S.) observing, that at the time the captain and crew left the William, she could no longer be navigated by them, from fatigue on their part, and from the condition of the vessel. The adventure of the Americans was desperate ; although they brought it to a favorable conclusion, it was scarcely to be hoped, and could only be attri - bated to unforeseen accident, aud the freh and vigorous strength with whirh they supplied the plans of th exhairlt - d enw.

Mr. Justice Abbott (who presided) intimated - a clear opinion against the plaintiff, viz. that he Could not abandon to the underwriters : but il was agreed that the nets sheulJ be inserted in a special case, a rerdict being taken iu the mean time for the plaintiff, 200. LONDON, Dec. 27, There hat been much speculation during the last fortnight, amongst the speculators in the funds. But there is no foundation for attributing this to a falling off in the revenue, as the follow in statement abundantly testifies : These gentlemen mutt have other motives for their enterprise; out iney wouici uo wen to re. collect that this desperate spirit has reduced ma. av of their predecessors from affluence to beg. gary, and in the present buoyant condition of tho industry and commerce of the country, the same fate may attend those who speculate upon the depression of the f unds.

Dispute between Spain and Portugal. Spain and Portugal have not yet came to any accord on the subject of the restitution of Monte Video. Oil the contrary Portugal, by authen tic advices received by the last Mails from Rio Janeiro, and confirmed by letters from Madrid, refuses to cede that fortress until Spain bas terminated the question with her Colonies, either by conquest or neeociation. opsin urges inc imrneaiaie resimuioii, as a sine qua non, that the may at that station land C .t - . J - . - .v. . . and reorganize the force which is ultimately to attempt the subjugttion q Buenos Ayres. H It is in theconhdence of that restitution she liss procured the Russian fleet, subjected her policy to ine reiruiatiun ot the Russian Auto crat, and equipped, with great sacrifices, seve ral thousand men to make the primary lodgment. Without that station as an harbou fur the sacred fleet, without that citv a a dVrmes, she con not pursue the emeiprue" rortugai replies" Monte Video was not occupied in a spirit of ambition or hosiiliity to any of the belligerents but became an indis - penkible measure of self - defence to prevent the revolutionary war infecting the Brazilian provinces. It cannot be ceded to Spain ander ex isting circumstances (a noble invention of mo dern diplomacy, committing nothinp and sit; mining every thing) without resented oy uil' Spanish Americans as an act ot hostility. " Poi tugal did not take Monte Video from the authorities or troops of Spain, but from the Government of Artigas, who if not directly acxnowieugingoDeaience to Buenot Ayres was nevertheless an ally against Ferdinand, and guardian of American Independence To restore Monte Video to Spain as a base for uer aggressive operations, would be virtually to engage the King of the Brasilsand Portugal in a contest which his policy, as an auxiliary or principal, must avoid. " If the troops of Ferdinand did re - possess Monte Video, what confidence could the Bra - silian Cabinet repose in the successful issue of an expedition, which batned a much larger Butish armament than Spain can send, when the defensive means of Buenos Ayres were much less Uian at the present moment i " In case of failure, what protection could Spain afford to the King of the Brazils against the vengeance of the injured and victorious Apanuli Americans!" 1 be matter then stands thus : Spam thea - tens the seizure of Portugal to compel acquie scence ; the King of the Brazils is said to be prepared for the sacrifice, which if it deprive mm of a country dear to his atlections,releases him from a vassilage molting to his dignity and ruinous to the interests both of bis Euro pean and Americans subjects. In Portugal he is seated on a Throne which, obliges him to receive his orders from the Custom house otli cers of England, or Uie AJguazils of Madrid, an America, if he adapts bis policy to the spirit of the country he bas adopted, he may reign independence lord or the sou, and the elected Constitutional Kuler of a r ee people. On Thursday morning Lord Caatleresph, ac companied by his brother Lord Mewart, setoff for Brighton, no doubt tor the purpose of com' muiiidlinir to the Prince Regent the late im portant matters upon w'lich the consultations have been held, and the dispatijies sent off. Il was the proposal of our Ministers, that the conferences on the mediation between Spain and Portugal should be held in London not in Paris, because a negociation for a point so strongly insisted on by one branch of the House of Bourbon should not be carried on at the court of another. On the commencement of the business is shown a leaning. The most material point in the matter of mediation is tliat Spain, supported by Russia, resolves to eipedite their armament to South America, at the same time that the quest. on is submitted to reference. The English Minis tei s justly say, that all mediation is hopeless, if this threatening course be pursued. But the remonstrances of our Ministers are disre garded. LIVERPOOL, Jaouarv I. Of all the maladies to which the human frame subject, none, perhaps, is more distressing than that of the travel and stone ; whatever will afford relief, therefore, in this paiuful disor der, ought to be generally known Mr. Thomas Rboads. ebony ink - stand maker, oa, ld street - road, who bad for many years been afflicted with the gravel and stone, for which he bad taken the best medical advice in Loouoo, without enect, was advised to try Dicey's Daffy's Elixir, from he use of which he has voided not less than 50 tones, many of them as large as peas, and the tan which cams from bim sum an oolong lorm, 'hree quarters of an inch in length, and three - t'.;hts ol an inch in diameter, and which he is ready to submit to the inspection of any person who may be doubtful of the fact. LivisrooL, January 3. The French Chamber of Deputies have at length completed thep ojet which regulates he freedom of the prcs, and having carried it through the requisite fi rm, it has finally been transmitted to the House of Peers. It mail oe e .nfi - vsed that the n casurr of liber - ty dealtoutbv this new C Klification is not ven d.undant, bi t it is to be hoped that tho privi - lejjes now granted to the press are only a prc - a I so i of St. V oy ten sayt the that and shall For been liufe la further and further indulgences. The caution and reserve with which reform is admitted cm this delicate subiecU lives as a right to expect that all the reforms which these legislators may attempt will be solid and permanent, it proportion as they are slow and reluctant. One defeat in the new regulations must be universally res - retted. Persons accu sed of abusing the freedom of the press arc not to have the benefit of a trial by jury. This circumstance is to be n grrtted on twoi grounds. First, because the accused will be deprived of the only tribunal which is compe tent to oppose the influence of government, and to counteract that inevitable bias wiucq Judges and Magistrates arc so apt to feel towards the sources of their power , and secondly, because the want of confidence in juries excites a suspicion that the great mass ol .me neonle have not vet entirely shaken off the re volutionary spirit, or returned to that state of sound and regulated tv elmg, on which alone genuine liberty can ever be engrailed. Within the last few days the funds have expe rienced a fall of nearly two per cent ; and after many ineffectual straggles to recover from their depression, they still remain about 1 - 2 per cent below their former elevation. AU the politicians who were not in the secrets of (he money market were, as usual, exceedingly puzzled to account for this phenomena. The ministerial writers, perplexed at a circumstance which seemed to indicate a retrogression in our nation al prosperity, the increase of which they have so elaborately endeavoured to demonstrate, ob tained from the government otnees a premature statement of the public revenue lor the present quarter, though it docs not close till the 5th intt. They could not, it teems, conceive any other cause for the unexpected tall of the stocks man ad apprehension of some great deficiency in the revenue. 1 be published statement, hewever, thoiuh only brought up to the 26th December. shew a considerable increase in the princijial branches of the national income, though net quite so great, as at first tight appears. Since then another circumstance has been brought for ward which is quite sufficient to explain the whole mystery. The French government has issued proposals for another large loan, aud this loan is to be again ncgoriated iu London. Considering that this new French stock will pay the holders upwards ol 7 tier cent for their money, whilst the British funds afford lett than 3 12, wc cannot at all be surprized that the transfers from the one to the other will be very numerous. We expect this with more confidence, as it is certain that an opinion of the growing stability of the trench government ts become general throughout r.urope. x.vcn the Edinburgh lie. viewers, (a valuable authority on this point) are disposed to admit, " that no very outrageous act is doing ; that the great landmarks ol the revolution are left untouched, awl that the sure, though slow progress towards a truly popular constitution it permitt J gradually to consolidate the fabric of the government upon the basis of public libel ty." A letter from Amsterdam of the 24lh, brought by the mail of Friday, informs us that the auto - Ja - fe at Wartbnrg bas attracted the official notice of must of the continental powers. All the tos'iian youths at the university of Jena, who were present at tbat fete, have, it it said, receiv ed a public intimation to return forthwith to Vi - enra. It is als asserted, that the French mi - lister, the duke of Richelieu, has addressed a note upon the subject to the different courts of Germany. The French government has transmitted to that of Saxony 02,000 crowns, in part paymcrt of its claims for supplies to Bonaparte's army. frtce of torn ana Jlowr n L.terpool, Uee. 30.
