HfSTORrCAL ILLUSTRA TrONS, OtrTHECHAHACTEHSOF SHAKSPEARE'S KING FLICHARD Ill. DUCHESS op YORK.— Few persons ever lived to see such great revolutions in their families, as Richard's mother, Cicely, Duchess of York. She was, by birth, a Lancastrian; her mother being the illegitimate daughter of John of Quint, by his I net Duchess; and by marriage of Yorkiit, her husband being Richard Plaotagenet, Duke of York. Though the wife of the representative of the second son of King Edward III., whose josi rights had been usurped by King Henry IV., sou Of the Duke of Lancaster, the third son of that monarch, fbere yel appeared but little plausibility of her husband's ever obtaining the crown, it having been possessed by three Sovereigns of the reigning branch of Lancaster and the father of Richard, her husband, had been attainted and executed for treason. Notwithstanding these discouraging circum- • tances, she saw her Lord, through her family interest, declared heir-line and after obtaining the greatest power that could he enjoyed by a •wfcjcet, tt»*t of Governor~>f nn»i just ascending the steps of the throne, she saw him, by his own rashness, killed in battle, and his head, separated from his body, in derision crown- ed with a paper diadem. Of her sons, five died children, Edward, the oldest surviving one, became King. The second, Edmorid, a youth of twelve years of age, was cruelly put to death after the battle of Wake- fie Id. George, the third son, who had been some rimes true, at others disloyal to the eldest bro- ther and sovereign, was convicted, and put to death by the procurement of one, and at the order of another of his brothers. Richard, the youngest son, after usurping the throne, and disgracing himself by many murderous deeds, fell in the field of battle, fighiing against a Prince who was descended from aa illegitimate branch of the Lan- caster line. The Paston Letters say she came to Coventry, December 8, 1459, when her husband had just been attainted, with their eldest son, and many others, by the Parliament. In January 1359-60, she wag ,still again received in Kent," whilst the Duke of York, her husband, was at Dublin, strengthened with his earls and homagers." Christopher Hausson writes of John Paston, Esq. a letter dated from London, October Ilith, 1460,that- The Monday after our Lady Day, there came hither to my master s place, the harbinger of my Lord of March, desiring that my Lady of York, and her two sons, my Lord George, and my Lord i Richard, and my Lady Margaret her daughter (which I have granted them in your name), might lie here until Michaelmas; and she had lain here two days, but she had tidings of the landing of my Lord at Chester; and the Tuesday next after my Lord sent for her (hat she should come to him at Harford (Hereford) and thither she went, leaving the children, whom the Lord of March, her eldest son, every day paid visits to." The Duke, her husband, fell at Wakefield ou the last day of December in the same year. This letter justifies Lord Orford's encomium of the Duchess of York, in his 11 Historic Doubts," that she was a Princess of spotless character," as it furnishes proof of her love to her children, obedience to her husband, and the regard of the public towards her. In her widowed state she was equally respected, notwithstanding her husband was attainted, and herself deprived of rank and fortune. Many and great were the changes this Princess saw she lived ja tl)e reigns of five Sovereigns. She saw the crown of France wrested from the infant brow of King Henry VI. and she saw him deprived of that of England, restored, again de- throned, and his innoceut blood cruelty sl)ilt.- She saw her son King Edward IV. crowned, de- throned, restored, and cut otf by his intemperance at an early age. She saw her grandson, King Edward V., upon the throne, but deprived of his eceptre, imprisoned and murdered. She saw her youngest son King Richard L11., usurp the regal honours and lose them soon after, with his life, when not more than thirty-two, or at the most thirty-five years of age; and, finally, she said the enemy of her family, who had vanquished him, proclaimed by the name of Henry VI f In her life time there were these Queens :— Joan, relict of King Henry IV. Catherine, the Dowager of Henry V. Margaret, Elizabeth, Anne, and Elizabeth, the consorts of King Henry YI., King Edward IV Kifl Richard HI., and King Henry VII. It is difficult to say which of these illustrious females wa most Oil- fortunate. Cicely was deprived of the title ot Queen only by the premature death of her hus band, owing to his own intemperate anger. She saw these Princes of WalesEdward, the amiable son of the unhappy King Henry Vt. Kichard, Duke of York, her husband, for so he was created. Edward, her grandson, the 500 of King Edward V., and who afterwards was styled King Edward V., Edward, son of KiDi Richard 111 ••»)#» her grandson; an;} Ar tbttr* liei"e> oat-grai 'ls(»o, the son of King Henr> V i !• None'of these j'rinces o! Wales were fortunate, for they all c • > 10 violent death-; except the two last, aud the 1 ata 'very early age. Tin* Dnchi/? ^rpesrs to tiMve had hr r general .dt'¡¡, at rJi}tinr<1 £ J-»stl-e, in Lon/Ion. and BClklimp<;te.;¡". in Herts; but these though her usual, were not her only residences, for in Aog. 14'13, ii) the reizii of King Edward IV., she was íH. (he mifred Abbev of Sl. Bellel Hnlm in Nllr. folk; this we learn from a letter of Sir John Paston to his son in i, he sa, 11 my Lady of York. and all her household were fliere. and where she proposed to reside until the King, cati,e I)e)oisd ,ea, liketj he air there, as it was said." Edward IV. was therl in Fritnce. In the reign of Richard 111. she resided in London, but she died sit her Castle of Berk* hampsfead, and was buried at her own desire at Fotheringay, in Northamptonshire, by the side of the Duke of York, her husband of whose splendid funeral Saudford gives a particular re- lation it was all but reg-sl. The chancel of the choir being destroyed. Queen Elizabeth, her grt at-great-grand daughter ordered the bodies of this illustrious couple to be placed in a vault pre- pared for that purpose in the church. GEORGE, DUKE OF CLARENCE.—The Duch- ess of York was extremely unfortunate in the quarrels of her sons. Clarence was peculiarly turbulent, fickle, ambitious avaricious, and rash. His quarrel with his brother Richard about his marriage, desirous of retaining ;r;e whole of 'he great poss- ssions of Ear I of Warwick. e»lh-«i the King-maker," whoseehiest daughter he hsd married, was perhaps lie first cause of rheir ex- treme dislike to each other and King Edward IV. never forgave hi;r« his disloyalty. If our common historians are be credited Clarence openly accused his mother of adultery) to stigmatise the King with bastardy, that Its might claim the d adem at the expense of her honour and this was one of the accusation* against him st hi, trial. They also allege that Richard,improving upon the hint, persuaded (be infamous Dr. Shaw, at St. Paul's, and the Duke of Buckingham, in Guildhall, that she had taken to her be<i rvrtaio persons perfectly resembling Edward IV. and Clarence, who were their fatheld, unit thit Ri. chard only had the features of Duke of York her husband, and consequently was the onlv som she had by the Duke. These, however, appear to he merely" Lan- castrian Tales;" If Clarence was weak, the other brothers were not. All men would have looked npon Richard as such a monster, that he would never have gained his aim, f these r«l»«'o«$featf been made by his mean*. EDWARD IV.—Edward, though little regard- tul of the ties of blood, or susceptible of the moral duties, appears to have behaved with much filial respect to his mother. In 1461 he sent, under his sign manual, a letter, acquainting her of his havine defeated Kiug Henry Vt., witt% every particular of (he bloody hatile ot Towton. Fabian says, that to February, 14T0, when this Nobility strove to make up the breach between him and Clarence, these Royal brothers met for that purpose at Baynard Castle, where the Duchess their mother then lay. In his marriage with Elizabeth Woodvile, he is said to have slighted her good advice, not to marry a subject, though be had thought it hit duty to consult her upon it. But love in this instance proved a more powerful passton than duty, or even his own security- The Kiug, how- ever. does not appear in the least to have rlero- gated in his wonted respect to his mother after- ward, though the influence of his Queen was su- perior to that of the widow of his father. THE QUEEN was more beautiful than wise, more accomplished thsn politic, for she studied more to fill The Court of her husband with her own relations, than to gain the friendship of the King's. This impolitic conduct gue a mutuat distrust (o the Royal Faniily and the Nobility, Eliaabeth was as intriguing as her predecessor Queen Margaret, and it was equally ruinous to the interest of her offspring. Henry VII., who, though for security he married her daughter, hated her and the Yorkists, on ascending the throne, totally neglected her, and at length suf- fered her to die literally a pauper, in Bermoud- sey Abbey. RICHARD IlL-To the numerous accounts of this Monarch it is almost impossible to add any thing new. Buck, in his reign of him*, and Lord Orford, in his Historic Doubts, have, however, said enough, nOlwilhstaudillg the vices ascribed to him by Shakspeare, and those whom he copied to make us hesitate before we pronounce defini- tively on his character. According to the latter author, it appears that King Richard's first Council was held in his mother's house, and that he wrote her a most affecliollate lelter ffOm PQft- tefract, June 3, after he was King. The iauguage is humble and respectful However, it must be supposed that she was greatly shocked at his conduct, when he had thrown off the mask; when he had bastardized all King Edward's children, when he had im- prisoned, if not destroyed, the sons of that Mo- narch, and she saw the daughters of Edward, instead of sharing the thrones of the greatest potentates in Europe, doomed to be oDly the wives of some of their father's subjects ? when she saw him change the succession so frequently, and at length saw it taken by him from the Plan- tagenets. But the tales about Richard's defam- ing her character, as well as the pretended its. persious of it b^ Clarence, Shaw, ami Bucking- ham, as we have hinted, appear to be lulallf ou. founded. All Richard' proeje's failed, and by his death at the battle of Bosworth, the crown went to an illegitimate stem of The Lancastrian line. The Duchess, his mother, however, must have had satisfaction in seeuig it settled with lu r eiuest grand-daughter, Elizabeth thus Twillin;; rhe roses, fed and while top'her:' She lived to see se»etal ihildren of this union. 0 See Bishop Kennel's Complete History of England,

LONDON. SATURDAY, NOVEMBERS, Madrid, Oct. 25.—THE political state of Spain has not changed since our last communication j the disbanding of Ithe Constitutional troops, however, continue whether they belong to the corps of Riego or Biillasteros, or are prisoners of war.— -The othcers are at the disposal of the Government, but without pay, for want of fonds. The plan for the new Royal Army has not yet been published. A new organization of the provincial Militia is spoken of as shortly ta take place; but we well know the mania which prevails in Spain of issuing Decrct's, without calcu- lating the means of carrying them into effect. If the machine of Government had received such a shock under the Con- stitutional system, that the Government of the Cortes could not exist without burdensome loans, how will the King be able to satisfy all the claims on the Trea- sury, considering the disorder which now reigns-in aU branches of the Administra- tion, and the small hope of an effectual remedy being applied ? People speak of the new loan, and the hesitation of the King to recognise those made by the Cortes; at least it seems that his Majesty would not be averse from giving to the lenders of the hundred millions of reals, credit for the fujidi which served for the support of the Royal Family during the Constitutional Government.* It is cer- tain, however, that this subject seriously occupies the attention of the Spanish Mi- nistry. which sees the difficulty of borrow. ino- in foreign countries, without first re- cognizing the|l«ans of the Cortes, How- ever this be, considering the actual situa- tion of Spain, we apprehend that the holders of Spanish bondsof the Cortes,both old and DeW, and foreign capitalists, will find the Spanish Government wholly un- able to pay the accumulated interest of the loans of the Cortes, supposing they should be recognized as valid,and still less ofcontracting new eligagetnentr,, whatever securities and guarantees may he offered, unless France or England will be surety. The first Power is most likely to render this service, and it is what Ferdinand aims at, though it does not appear how he will be able to indemnify his good Allies without some territorial sacrifice. In the midst of these embarrassments Ferdinand Still so far depends on his resources, that lie has given orders to send immediately to the Havannah, and then to Lima, the poor remains of the Spanish navy, consist- ing of the Asia ship of the line, two fri- gates, a corvette, and two brigs. If we may believe the reports in circulation, this expedition will be seconded by some French vessels which will join it in Ame- rica. It is affirmed, also, that the French commerce will enjoy henceforth, at the Jjavannah and in the colonies which are not yet independent, severel important privileges; in fine, that Ferdinand thinks of long making use of the support of the French, for preserving the integrity of the Spanish territory, It is said that'the oc- cupation of Cadiz and the Isle of Leon, has been a subject of dispute with the Cabinet of St. James's. In reference to the English commerce we may observe, that Gibraltar will soon feel the effects of this occupation, that is as soon as the Eng- lish goods which are in Cadiz are disposed of for the French being masters of that place, will deluge Andalusia with their own goods, and will establish their fac- tories and connections which they had not before. The differences said to exist between the Cabinet of St. James's and Ferdinand, attract the attention of the Constitutionalists, who, though not sa. tisfied with the English, would wish how- ever to see them masters of the Balearic islands, which thev consider as the only means to check the ambitious views of a Northern Power, and to save a great num- ber of ""fortunate Liberals who have taken refuge there. The journey of his Royal Highness to Madrid, preceded by the head-quarters, the assembling of the chosen cavalry about his person, the re- turn of Molitor to Murcia. with a division, are all indications of the return of part of the army to France, which, at the same fime, will securc the provinces of Ali- caut, Carthagena, V alencia, and Arragon, on the one side and Andalusia La Mau- cha, and Castile on the other. These movements will also ProCect. the Royal Family on the journey to Madrid, but oil the other hand it has resulted from all this, that General La RochejacqueSin, having been called with his troops Tru,x.iiio and Toledo, the left lfank of the y ex nosed, an- the Empeciaado r. 0 took advantage of this to return towards Truxillo and attack Caceres, where the Royalists attempted to defend themselves; it was on the 18th that that General, at the head of 200 horse and 300 foot, took the town by storm, and put to the sword of Quesada's troops and some mon ks and priests, setting fire- to the Convent of St. Francis, in which they had sought re- fuge. lie left the place on the 21st with the booty which he had made. The Duke of Reggio, on hearing of this affair, immediately sent General Marguerge to Truxillo with 1,200 men. It is thought that Carthagena and Alicant will submit as Peniscola has done. Cadiz Oct, 17.—-General Ballasteros, fearing to experience some unpleasant treatment in travelling through Spain, to retire to his own province, Arragon, has solicted and obtained permission to make Port St. Mary his temporary residence.— He vegetates there in a melancholy style, abandoned by every one. The inhabit- ants of Cadiz continue to be distinguished lor a moderation, which forms a singular contrast with what is pacing at Seville, Madrid, and other places. Notwith- standing the immense change which has taken place, no act of insult has beeu committed. No song or acclamation which might, even indirectly, wound the feelings of the vanquished party, has been heard. The King is *till at Seville. The Duke of San Fernando, who was Minister for Foreign Affairs when ttie broke out in March, 1820, and who has since had no employment, on hastening to pay his respects to his Majesty, was ordered to exile himself to Murcia.' This order caused great surprise. it is possible, that the Confessor-Minhter (Don Victor Saez,) who now fills the office which (he Duke of San Fernando occupied in 1820 has thought it prudent-to remove his pre- decessor, at a r.n n nf when it i- ptoposnl to place every on the old fo .ti.i^r- The decree of th 1st ofOcto'be;, s g>?ed by the King at Port St. Mary, was not I published here till yesterday. This tardv publication of a document which com- pletely undoes every thing which had been promised in the proclamation of the preceding day, caused the greatest asto- nishment. Various attempts have been made to explain the cause of the deiay in publishing this important document. Bemhrara -By the arrival of the Shan- non at Liverpool on Monday last, we have received advices from Demerara to the 17th Sept. at which time all was quiet. Twenty- three of the black in- surgents had been executed, and the trials of others implicated in the late diabolical attempt was proceeding. Smith, the Missionary, was still in custody, and there was every appearance of proof being produced that he was the principal promoter of the insurrection. He preached to a large assembly of blacks on the evening previous to the intended massacre of the whites, and took his text from the four last verses of the 149th Psalm, viz, Let the praises of God be in their mouth and a two edged sivord in their hand,1 To be avenged of the heal inn and to rebuke the people, To bind their Kings in Chains and their nobles with links of iron. That they may be avenged of them, as it is written such honour tiave all saints." The following is an extract from the Demerara Gazette of September 8 On Monday the 25th, a General Court Martial assembled at the Colony House, and has met daily (e-xcept Sundays) since. A particular detail of their proceedings we cannot at present give. The evidence before theCourtwill afford the best and most correct narrative of the causes which occasioned the revol t- a report of the trials of the respective prisoners is preparing, and will be laid before the public as soon as the Court shall close. Fourteen of the ringleaders have already been executed on the pa- rade ground in Cumingsburg, independ- ent of those tried and shot on the differ- ent estates on the Coast—and upwards of 200 remain yet for trial. The whole of the ringleaders are now taken,except two (Quamina and Richard,) belonging to Plantation Success. Jack, the Chief of the Rebels, who had hitherto eluded pursuit, was arrested yesterday. Tranquillity is now completely restored, and we have the satisfaction to know that our present military establishment is adequate to put down any insurrectionary movement, however formidable, that might be meditated by the eaemies of the Co- lonies.
