The following most judicious document has been addressed to the army serving in Ireland, by the Earl of Harrington, Commander in Chief:-


            "Adujutant-General's Office, Dublin, Jan. 1811.
"Reports having been circulated, that Catholic Soldiers have been prevented from attending Divine Worship according to the tenets of their religion, and obliged, in certain instances, to be present at that of the Established Church, the Commanding Officers of the several Regiments are to be attentive to the prevention of such practices, if they have in any instance existed in the troops under their command, as they are in violation of the Orders contained in the Curcular Letter of the 14th of May, 1806, and since repeated to the Army; and the Catholic Soldiers, as well as those of other Sects, are to be allowed, in all cases, to attend the Divine Worship of the Almighty according to their several persuasions, when duty does not interfere, in the same manner, and under the same regulations, as those of the Established Church.
"WM. RAYMOND, Dep. Adj. Gen.
"N. RAMSEY, Maj. Assist. Adj. Gen."

So late as January last, some of the artillery, privates and drivers, quartered in Enniskillen, continued to do duty with turned coats, the most mortifying punishment ever inflicted on a brave man, and this merely for having attended according to law, to the worship of their church; but on the evening of that day the scene was somewhat changed – the General Order arrived; on the following morning the Officer accused of the oppression departed for Dublin; and on Sunday the Catholic soldiers of the Garrison were MARCHED TO THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHAPEL, ACCOMPANIED BY TWO OFFICERS OF THAT RELIGION; and on Sunday also, for the first time, the Catholic soldiers of the 59th were marched to the Chapel in Newry by three Officers of that regiment.

The Captain of the galliot North Star, of Papenburgh, arrived on the 9th ult. At Aberdeen, from Christiansand in Norway, reports that a Revolution had taken place over all Norwa, in consequence of Bonaparte having demanded a certain number of Norwegian seamen to man his navy. The forts on the Norway coast are all in possession of the insurgents, consisting of the whole military, and naval force of the country; the former having been ordered to enforce obedience, the latter not only refused, but joined them.

Upwards of 600 sail of ships have arrived this year at Quebec for timber; and the exertions which are making to give effect to the same, by the erection of steam-engines, &c. cannot fail to render it more advantageous to Great Britain, as it will supersede, in a great measure, the importations from Norway or the Baltic.

Intelligence has been received of an attempt having been made by French emissaries to shake the allegiance of the people of the Phillipine Isles to Ferdinand VII. which was, however, frustrated by the Governor.

A letter from the French Minister of Justice to the President of the Council of Prizes, at Paris, dated Dec. 25, after referring to the Proclamations of the President of the United States of America, directs, "that all causes pending in the Council of Prizes, on account of captures of American vessels, made from the date of November 1, and those which shall be thereafter made, shall not be judged according to the principles of the Berlin and Milan decrees, but that they shall remain in sequestration; the vessels taken or detained before being alone under sequestration, and the rights of their proprietors being reserved till the 2d of February next."
