The following are the general instructions for the guidance of her Majesty's naval officers employed in the suppression of the slsve trade, presented to the House of Lords by the Earl of Aberdeen, on Thursday Inst 1 The slave trade has been denounced by all the civilized world as repugnant to every principle of justice and humanity You are, however, to bear in mind that Great Britain claims no rights what ever with respect to foreign shi|* engaged in that traffic, excepting such as the law of nations war rants, or as she possesses by virtue of special trea ties and conventions with particular States. 2. In proceeding to deal with a vessel suspected of being engaged ir|. the slave trade, you are in the first instance to refer to that part of tne instructions which applies to the particular circumstances of the case. But those instructions in no degree diminish the necessity of a careful study of the treaty, con vention, or law upon which they are founded. You are therefore to make yourself thoroughly conver sant with the treaties, conventions, and laws, as well as with all the instructions given to you rela tive to the slave trade; and you are to enjoin the officers under y?ur command to make themselves acquainted with the parts that refer to the duties which those officers are to perform, taking care to afford every facility for this purpose. 3 The powers with which you are invested on this service are intrusted to you for the sole purpose of suppressing the slave trade, and are never to be exercised without reasonable grounds of suspicion that the case is one oi a vessel liable, on account of being engaged in the 6lave trade, to be brought to justice by her Majesty's ship under your com mand. 4. You are not to visit a vessel under a foreign flag on the high s-as on suspicion of slave trade, except in virtue of special authority under treaty, or in case you have reason to believe that the ves sel has no right or title to claim the protection of the flag she hears. 5. You are not on any account to search any vessel, whether British or foreign, lying within the recognised jurisdiction of a foreign civilized state, wi hout the formal permission of the local autho rities. 6. Towards every functionary, British or foreign, with whom you may come in contact, you will invariably maintain a respectful and cour eous de meanor. 7. Towards the masters and crews of vessels whose cases it will be your duty to investigate in the service of suppressing the slave trade, you will not only use moderation and discretion, combined with firmness in the execution of the duty intrust ed to you, but will take every opportunity of af fording them assistance in distress, _giving them medical advice when required, and furnishing sup plies when tliey are urgently needed, and can pro perly be spared by her Majesty's ships. 8 You will take special cate to ensure propriety of language and demeanor on the part of officers, seamen, and marines towards all persons with whom they may come into contact in the service of suppressing the slave trade ; and they must be reminded that any breach of discipline, or any ex hibition of intemperance, will be visited with se vere punishment; and, in all cases, her Majesty's officers are to recollect that they will be held an swerable, not only for their own conduct, but for that of their men. 9. You are not, without necessity, to resort to coercive measures for bringing vessels to ; and yon are to be cautious not to occasion further devia tion from the course such vessels are steering than a due regard to the service on which you are em ployed may require ; and you will bear in mind, that in every case, and in all stages of the proceed ings, it is highly important to cause the vessel visited as little delay or incnnvenienoe as possible, consistent with the effectual discharge of the duiy to be executed. 10. You are not entitled to insist that a boat shall be sent to you from a vessel which has been brought to for the purpose of being visited, or that any person shall come, or that any papers shall be brought on hoard of her Majesty's ships, upon such 11. On all occasions of visiringsuspected vessels, the officer sent on board is to be in proper uniform, and of the rank required by the treaty or instruc tions under which the visit's made; and the boat tn which he goes is always to carry a British flag and pendant; and he is to be provided with the documents conferring authority to visit and search, and the instructions applicable to the occasion. 12 Before an office1' proceeds to search a vessel, the minutest inspection is to be made of her pa pers, and every information elicited which can he obtained by inquiries courteously made, as by this means the necessity of a search may be avoided. 13. The crew ol a boat sent to visit a suspected vessel is never to be suffered to quit the boat unless s, ecially ordered to do so. The officer is not to order them to quit the boat, unless it may be ne cessary to search the vessel, or unless circumstan ces of th? moment imperatively require it. If further assistance is obtained from the cruiser for the purpose of making a minute search, the addi tional men must be accompanied by a sufficient number of officers to prevent damage to the cargo, or any irregularity or excess. 14. Neither the master, nor any of the persons on board the vussel, are to be removed during the search, without their consent. 15. When, alter the examination, there appears to be no sufficient ground for seizure, everything that has been removed is tube replaced as quickly as possible, and carefully restored to its original state and condition; and the vessel is to be permit ted to pursue her course without delay. 16 In the case mentioned in the proceeding ar ticle, before the officer quits the vessel, he is to H?k the master whether he has any complaint to make of the manner in which the search hus been con ducted, or on any other ground; if the master should have any complaint to make, the officer is to request him to ppecify the particulars in writing, for your information, and you are to investigate the same most carefully, and to loose no time in applying such remedy as circumstances admit and ine case may require. If von make the search in person, you will your self follow the directions contained in this article. 17. In all cases where vessels are visited or searched on suspicion of being engaged in the nlave trade, the visiting officer, before quitting the vessel, is to offer to enter on her log a statement of proceedings on board; and, in Case the order is accepted, be is to be carelul to note down the ex act time that elapsed trom the time the vessel was boarded to the time she was liberated or seized. 18 When the visiting officer has verbally report ed his proceedings to you, he is, in all cases, whe ther tne vessel be seized or not, to commit the same to wri'ing immediately, with all the particu lars, while the facts are fresh in his memory; and this written statement is to specily whether any complaint was made by the master or any other Csrson on hoard the vessel. This statement is to e inserted in the log, with the officer's signature attached, and you will forward a copy of it, with vonr own remarks, to the senior officer of the sta tion, and a duplicate thereof to the Admiralty by the first opportunity 19. When you have determined to detain a ves sel, you will immediately notify your intention to her master: you will cause a careful search to be made for all papers and documents on boatd ; and will take possession of the same, causing tliern to be numbered and described in a list which >oa will sign. In this list the papers voluntarily deliver ed up must be distingniEhed from any ihat may have been concealed, it any should have been de stroyed or thrown overboard, the nature of ihe pa pers, so tar as it may be known, with the circum stances under which they were made away with, must he carefully stated at the bottom o? the lint; and some person cognisant of the facts must be sent with the vessel to make affidavit thereof to the Court of Adjudication. 20 On the detention of a vessel yott will have a note made of the quantity ol money or other valu ables on board, aud sign the same, and have that note duly witnes?ed, to be produced upon the trial of the case ; and you will take especial care that the articlen are deposited in safe custody. 21. Whatever arrangement may be made for the disposal ol the crew ol a captured vessel, the mas ter and two persons at least of her crew must be sent, together with the vessel, to bs produced be fore the Court, as necessary witnesses in every case. And one of those persons should be the chief mate, supercargo, or boatswain. 22. If you do not yoursell accompany the detain ed vessel for trial, you will give the officer in charge directions iu writing for his conduct during the voyage. . . # , 23 You will place undef the command of the officer sent in charge a crew sufficient for the ves sel's safe conduct, with provisions for the voyage ; and you will give the officer strict orders for the preservation of the ship, her cargo, and everything on board, and for the prevention of embezzlement, excess, or irregularity of any sort. 24. You wilfdeliver to the officer sent in charge all the papero found on hoard, together with ihe other necessary documents, and the officer must be careful to keep them in sale custody during the voywte. Yon will also instruct him to endeavor to obtain, by every proper means, additional informa tion as to the case ; and if he succeeds in finding any additional papers or documents, he ia to pre serve them carefully to be produced at the trial. 23. The officer in charge, as soon as possible af ter he has gone on board the vessel, is to draw up, with the assistance of the master, an inventory of the stores, furniture, and also of the cargo of the vessel, so far as it can be ascertained without dis turbing the stowage ; and, should it be practicable, the*cargo is to be secured by sealing down the hatches. The inventory is to be made out in dupli cate, and signed both by the officer in charge and the matter of the vessel; and one of these docu ments is to be retained by the officer, and the other by the ma-ter. 26. If slaves should be on board, every effort is to be made to alleviate their sufferings and improve their condition, by a careful attention to cleanli ness and ventilation, by separating the sickly from those who are in good health, by encouraging the slaves to feel confidence in fur Majesty's officers and men, and promoting amongst them cheerful ness and exercise. 27. The officer in charge of a captured slave-ship will be warranted in landing the slaves, or trans ferring them to other vessels, wheoever such mea sures are absolutely necessary, but not otherwise; and in such cases a certificate of nil ilie circum stances mast be drawn out, and be taken with the vessel to the place of adjudication. . In most cases of seizure under treaty, this con tingency is provided for; under some of the trea ties the slave must be carried eventually to the port of adjudication. Reference on this, as on other points, must be had to the treaty or conven tion applicable to the case, and to the instructions thereon. 28. All British subjects found employed on board a detained British or foreign slave vessel are to be sent with two witnesses to a British port for trial as soon as possible Foreigners on board a British slave vessel, or in a foreign slave vessel seized in British waters, are to be dealt with in the same manner as British subjects. Foreigners forming the crew of foreign vessels captured under treaty, are to be dealt with accord ing to the stipulations thereof. 29. The master and crew, or such part of them as may be left on board a detained slave vessel, are to be well treaied, nud not to be subjected to further restraint than may be requisite fot insuring llie due execution ol the service inirusted lo the officer in charge; but it will be necessary to guard against attempts at recapture, whether by open force or any other means. 30. The officer in charge is to keep a log of his proceedings from llie time he goes on board until ne is relieved from his charge; he is to note iu this log any perceptible changes in the state, quantity or position ot the cargo, and all accident to the vessel or rigging, and iheir results. 31. In all cases of capture, a full and accurate account of everything captured or destroyed, and of the disposal of the tame, is to be sent in together with a report of the case, by the officer in charge to the senior officer on the station, and a duplicate thereof to the Secretary to the Admiralty, by the earliest oppoitunity. 32 If a vessal, at the time of seizure, shouid be nm on shore and wrecked, or alterwards lost or abandoned, the slaves, the stores, cargo, Arc , that can ba saved and transported, ate to be tukento the port ot adjudication, together wiih the necessary witnesses. All papers which may be found are to be carefully preserved, and an affidavit of the facts must be mude, as the foundation of the proceed ings before the Court for trial of the case. When there are no slaves on board, the equipments, or such parts thereof as are saved, should be carried to the port of adjudication, for the purpose of sup plying evidence of the slave trading. 33. On arriving at the port of adjudication, the officer in charge is to make himself acquainted with the course of proceeding iu the court before which the vessel ia to be tried. In nil cases it will be necessary for him to make an affidavit, verifying the papers brought into court, and to annex the papers thereto. It any should have been destroyed or concealed, the particulars are to be stated in that affidavit. In c?m-? ot captures under treaty, the instructions thereon must he referred to for tne lorms of documents and course of proceedings nt the port of adjudication Iu other cases, the affi davit as to ship's papers should be drawn up in the form, standing us au appendix to this section, un less there should he a different form prescribed by the Coiut before which the vessel is adjudicated 3-1. it, upon any occasion of capture, there are U"t any papers found on board, an affidavit to that effect will be ihe ground of the proceedings. 35. On delivering over the vessel to the person authorised by the Court to receive her, the officer in charge is to produce the inventory drawn up by himself and the master; and he is to request that a receipt may be given for all the articles contained in the inventory, except tug of course where any deficiencies may appear, a?d where this isihe case, he will report the cause thereof to the Court, aftd to his commander, on his return to the ship. 36. The officer sent in charge will give his best assistance in every way, when called upon, to the Court, for the due adjudication of the case of the vessel and her cargo, if any : and, upon judgment being given, will immediately report in writing to the officer under whom he is serving his proceed ings and the judgment of the Court, and will send a duplicate of that report to the Admiralty by the first opportunity.

More Mob Law.?A man named Abraham Smith was tuken from jaii by force, and executed by a lawleM gang at Fredtricktown, Mi.koin i, on the Ath in?t Smith liad t<een convicted of ipurder, and was sen tenced to be executed on the 1st day of June. The sen tence had been stayed until the 1st September. An at tempt was made to execute him by mob violence on the 1st of June, which was resis ed l>y the assembled people On the day of the late election, a company ol half tntuxi cated men succeeded in breaking open the jail with axes, crow bars, Itc., and hung the prisoner. The following we copy from the St. Louia Republican?One of the gang got down in the eoil where Smith waa in irons, and tied u rope round his neck. Those above hauled Smith up by the rope, dragged him down stairs, and about fltty yard* from the jail, and notwithstanding ha waa apparently dead when they reached the tree, hung him up, where be remained some minutes. They then let him down, when One of the gang, smpeeling life was not sufficiently ex tinct, peisisted that they should again hang him up, which was done accordingly. Robt. M. Friar, coroner, issued process immediately tor a Jury, and on Monday night held an inquest on the body ot Smith, when the jury returned a verdict that Smith came to his death by the hauda of Jones, Sinclair, Mayse, Pollis, Cox, Blackburn, Sbettly, and live others, the names of whom wn have not learned. On Thursday a State's warrant waa issued for the arrest of the offenders, and on UVdneaday the Sheriff* had auc ceedad in arresting Cox, Shettly, Blackburn, Pollis, and another man, who were undergoing an rxaminaiion be fore Justices. Sinclair and Mm) se, two of the ringleaders, had not been f und when the nnwa left Krrderfcktown. On Saturday, we understand, Mayse was at St Mary's Landing, wilting for the llrst opportunity afforded, to es cape from justice, and no doubt has succeeded. The par ties arrested were committed to taku their trial for mur der. Canadian Affairs.?There have been .strong rumors within the last few days that a Ministry would be announoed almost immediately, but we cannot name a single member of the Assembly that ia to have anything to do with it. The Hon. Mr. Menials spoken ol as either Receiver or Inspector General. Sir Charles Metcalfe has bronght the Sovereign whom he represents into a most humiliating position, indeed he haa done n.or? to weaken and degrade the Royal Prerogative then all hia predecessors put together, and this We lie endeavoring to maintain It. Within the last week or two leading French Canadian gentlemen have again decliued most important offices. Subsequently we learn that the At torney Generalship of L. C. was offered to the Hon Henry Black of Qu-bec, sndAy 'im dec inrd. Mr. Black although he does n?t profess to be a supporter either of the indivi dual* who composed the late Ministry or of the mea sures leels himself bound to adhere to the Resolutions of 1841, ami can give no counti nance or stippart to their un constitutional proceedings ol Mir Charles Metcalfe, ft would have been well for Sir Allen McNab's political im putation had ho taken the same stand. We trust he will yet do so. We believe that Mr Black haa raised himself very much in public estimation by his conduct since the resignation Such conduct will fee grateluliy remember ed by bis country men when the name of Sir Chailes Met caife shall have been forgotten. Our readers will gather from the foregoing remaika that it would he easier to mention the names of those who will not join tho weio Mis n than ol those who will.
