This Paper for upwards of FIFTY- SEVEN Years has been and continues to be Circulated early every FRIDAY Morning by Newsmen in all the Market Towns and Populous Villages in ttie Counties of LINCOLN, RUTLAND, LEICESTER, the ISLE of ELY, NORTHAMPTON; Fart of CAMBRIDGE, HUNTINGDON, NORFOLK, NOTTINGHAM, and YORK— And by the Port to the Houses of many of the principal Nobility and Gentry throughout the Kingdom.— It is likewise regularly Filed and Advertisements received at Mr. KIRKMAN's, Red Lion Passage, Fleet- Street; and at Mr. TAYLER's, Warwick Court, St. Paul's, LONDON. VOL. LVIIL— No 3050.] FRIDAY, AUGUST 21, 1789. [ Price Three- Pence Half- Penny. Saturday and Sunday's Posts. From the LONDON GAZETTE, Madrid, July 27. tHE distress which had begun to be felt in some of the provinces of this kingdom from the scar- city of corn has already been relieved, in - a great measure, by the provident exertions of the Spanish government, and is likely to be entirely removed by the good harvest which has been gathered in in the Sonth, and by the favourable appearance of the crops in the North. Vienna, August 1. The Emperor's fever has now entirely left him, and his Majesty was on Thursday so well than he took an airing on horseback, for the first time since his recovery. Intelligence has been received from the Bannat that the Turks have totally abandoned that province, and retired into their own territory. Florence, Aug. i. On the 6th ult. a French sloop of war arrived at Leghorn from Corsica, and brings accounts that the Algerines have declared war against France. Cogenhagen, August 4. An engagement took place Between the Russian and Swedish fleets near Bornholm on the 26th ult. which commenced at two o'clock in the afternoon, and lasted till eight in the evening. The particulars are not yet known here, any further than that the Russian fleet, under the command of Admiral TchitchakofF, bore away, and that the Duke of Suder- mania afterwards sailed for Carlscrona. Letters of the 2d instant, received this morning, mention that his fleet was seen off that harbour. The Russian squadron, commanded by Admiral Koslainoff, weighed anchor on the 30th ult. from Kioge Bay, and steered to the Westward ; and nearly at the same time the whole Danish squadron also weighed anchor, and steered the same course. A junction of the two divisions of the Russian fleet is now said to have been effected between Carlscrona and the Isle of Goth- land. Exeter, August 13. Their Majesties, and their Royal Highnesses tlie Princesses, having set out from Weymouth at eight o'clock this morning, arrived at the deanry at nine this evening, 111 perfect health. Whitehall, August 15. The King has been pleased to constitute and appoint the Right Honourable John Earl of Chatham, Richard Hopkins, Esq; the Right Honour- able Charles George Lord Arden, and Samuel Lord Hood, Vice- Admiral of the Blue, both of the kingdom of Ireland, Francis Drake, Bart. Rear- Admiral of the Red, the Right Honourable Robert Grosvenor, com- monly called Lord Viscount Belgrave, and the Honour- able John Thomas Townsend, to be his Majesty's Com- missioners for executing the office of High Admiral of the kingdoms of Great Britain and Ireland. The King has been pleased to constitute and appoint the Right Honourable Constantine John Lord Mulgrave, ef the kingdom of Ireland, and the Right Honourable James Graham, commonly called Marquis of Graham, to be Receiver and Paymaster General of his Majesty's guards, garrisons and land forccs. LONDON. In consequence of an invitation from his Majesty, the Prince of Wales, with his Royal brothers, embarked on Thursday night at Brighton, on board one of the packets, to go round by water to Plymouth, in order to be present at the naval review. The Princes ordered their horses and carriages to set forward for York. The report of a matrimonial connection between the heir to the King of Prussia and our Princess Royal is again revived. The King of Spain, though he has succeeded to the throne, has not yet been formally anointed and crowned as King of that noble country. We are informed by a correspondent at lisbon, that the Spanish Grandees have entered into a combination not to assist, countenance, or recognizance the validity of that ceremony, unless the King shall agree to re- establish the Cortez, and take the oaths that were made in former times by the Sovereigns of Castille and Andalusia, to their new subjects. The truth of this will soon appear. It is said that the valuable southern whale fishery has been greatly interrupted, and is likely to be wholly over- set by the King of Spain having ordered the commander of his squadron in those seas to remove all ships fishing on those coasts, and not to permit them either to Catch whales or kill seals. Their orders were given to the fishermen with the greatest civility, but at the same time in the most positive and decided manner, and with an in- junction to quit the coast in a very short but limited time, offering his assistance to expedite their departure, and positively forbidding them to return again into those sea claiming them as the sole right of the King his master.— One, if not more, of the ships thus forced away, is said to have arrived in England, and others are gone to dif- ferent port to complete their cargoes; but as the courts of London and Madrid are said to be on such friendly terms, it is to be hoped such a negociation will be opened upon it as will bring it to a speedy and peaceable issue. Search is now making in the Antonine Baths, by order of the Pope, for the concealed treasure of the Jesuits, said to amount to no less than nine million of crowns. His Holiness, in case of success, has agreed to bestoW a fourth of this sum on the ex- capuchin who made the discovery. The late insolence of the Algerine privateers to the French flag, is no more than an instance of what dear human nature every day supplies:— When the lyon is down every ass will have a kick a him. Many pious hymns were composed and sung in our churches, during the King's late indisposition. Some were very curious; but none more so than one which for a long time was sung in a country church, in the county of Suffolk, and of which we cannot refrain from giving the first stanza as a specimcn. To have a King so fully grown, So fit to sit upon a throne, Must surely give one pleasure ; But then to have a King so sick : — So cramm'd with Doctor's stuff, so thick, Must grieve one beyond Measure. BILLINGBOROUGH, August 16th, 1785. JOHN BURGESS, BEGS Leave to acquaint the PUBLIC, he has bought a Quantity of COALS, of particular good Quality, which, notwithstanding the Advance, he purposes to sell them at the under reduced Prices.

Dated the Fourth Day of August, 1789. JAMES GRAHAM. Lincoln's Inn. AT a MEETING of the NORTH LEVEL COMMITTEE ** of COMMISSIONERS, and of the LAND OwNERS in the said LEVEL, & c. held pursuant to public Notice given in the General Evening Post, and Cambridge and Stamford Newspapers, at the Rose and Crown Inn, in WISBECH St. PETER'S, on Wednesday the Fifth Day of August, 1789, Mr. SAMPSON BARBER in the Chair, The Report of the North Level Committee of the Fourteenth Day of May last being read, Resolved, That it appears to this Meeting, that the Funds for the Support of the outward Banks and Works which preserve the North level and Portsand, are now inadequate to such Purpose ; and that the Interest of the Debt of 25,0001. owing thereon, is the Cause of such Insufficiency. Mr. Maxwell having stated to this Meeting, that a great Number of Proprietors intend to petition his Grace the Duke of Bedford, and Sir Sampson Gideon, to lower the Interest of their several Debts from per Cent, per Annum ; and also to petition his Grace to asSign over the Profits of the Banks and Fisheries, rented by him of the Corporation of Bedford Level, to the Public Use ; It is the Opinion of this Meeting, that the Funds, when so increased, will not be adequate to the future Support of the Works dependant thereon. But it appears to this Meeting, that if the interest of the Whole Debt could be lowered 2I, per Cent, that such an Addition to the funds may be adequate thereto. It appears to this Meeting, that His Grace is a Creditor to the Amount of Sir Sampson Gideon, — Other Creditors, — — NOTICE is hereby given, thaT we whose Names are hereunder- written, Commissioners appointed in and by an Act of Parliament passed this pre- sent Session, for imbanking and draining certain Fens and low lands in the Parishes of Nocton and Potterhanworth, in the County of Lincoln, and in the Parish of Branston, in the County of the City of Lincoln, will hold an ADJOURNED MEET- ING at the Rein Deer Inn, in LINCOLN, on Friday the Fourth Day of September next, at Eleven o'clock in the Fore- noon, for the Purpose of receiving Proposals from any Person or Persons willing to contract for the Building of Three Water Engines in the said Fens, in the Spring of the Year 1790, with Sails not less than 36 Feet in Length, and in all other Parts to be of sufficient Dimensions and Strength to carry a Water Wheel of 16 Feet Diameter, with Ladles 20 Inches broad, to be erected in the usual Form of building Engines, with Vertical Wheels, or with an inclined Wheel, after the Form of the Engine erected in Blankney Fen. JOHN HUDSON. 24th July, 1789. JOHN PARKINSON. NOTICE is hereby given, THAT we whose Names are hereunder- written, Commissioners appointed in and by an ACT of Parliament passed this pre- sent Session, for imbanking and draining certain Fens and low Lands in the Parishes of Dunston and Metheringham, in the County of Lincoln, will hold an ADJOURNED MEETING at the Rein Deer Inn, LINCOLN, on Friday the Fourth Day of September next, at Eleven o'Clock in the Forenoon, for the Purpose of receiving Proposals from any Person or Persons willing to contraCt for the Building of TWO Water Engines in the said Fens, in the. Spring of the Year 1790, with Sails not less than 36 Feet in Length, and in all other Parts , to be of sufficient Dimensions, and Strength to carry a Water Wheel of 16 Feet Diameter, with ladles 20 Inches broad; to be erected in the usual Form of building Engines, with Vertical Wheels, or with an inclined Wheel, after the Form of the Engine erected in Blankney Fen. Mr. Wing, Agent to his Grace the Duke of Bedford, having proposed to lower the Interest of his Grace's Debt to 3l. per Cent, per Annum from Midsummer last, if Sir Sampson Gideon will do the same, such Diminution of Interest, in both their Debts, will add to the Funds 3941. per Annum. It is also the Opinion of this Meeting, that the other Creditors to the Amount of 5 ,3001. not being Proprietors, it cannot be re- quested of them to lower their Interest to 3I. per Cent ; but Mr. Maxwell having offered to adVance 5,3ool. or any Part thereof, at Lady- Day, 1790, at 4I. per Cent, that such Offer should be ac- cepted, for the Whole or such Part thereof as the present Creditors do not chuse to lend at the Rate of 4I per Cent. On Application to Mr. Wing respecting the Profits of the Banks and Fisheries rented by his Grace of the Corporation, it was agreed, that the several Leases should be rcconsidered by the Corporation of Bedford Level at their next April Meeting; and that such Rent should be paid by his Grace from Lady- Day last part, as the Corporation, on their further Consideration of the Matter, should think proper. Resolved, That it is the Opinion of this Meeting, that so long as the Funds shall continue to receive the before- mentioned Augmenta- tions, no further Taxation than the present may be necessary; but that if an Alteration hereafter shall take Place to decrease the same, or they shall evidently appear to be insufficient, Application to Par- liament will be necessary for the Preservation of the North Level and Portsand. Mr. Maxwell not being prepared to assent to the lowering Sir Sampson Gideon's Interest to 3I. perCent. this Meeting is adjourned to the Duke Head's Inn, in Thorney, on Wednesday the Twenty- sixth Instant, to receive Sir Sampson Gideon's Determination ; and in the mean time it is the Opinion of this Meetings that Notice of an intended Application to Parliament should be given, that the same may proceed, in Case Sir Sampson Gideon should not assent to the lowering his Interest. Resolved, That these Resolutions be printed Twice in the General Evening Post, and Twice in the Cambridge and Stamford Newspapers. Resolved, that the Thanks of this Meeting be given to his Grace the Duke of Bedford, for his liberal and handsome Offer of the Reduction of the Interest of his Debt on the North Level, from 5 to 3 per Cent. Resolved, That the Thanks of this Meeting be given to the Chairman, for his impartial Attention to the Business of the Day. ( Signed) S. BARBER, Chairman. 24th July, 1789. JOHN PARKINSON.

WHEReAS I ROBERT LARRATT of Edith- Weston, in the County of Rutland, Butcher, did, On Wednesday the 5th Day of August Instant, salfely and unjustly accuse Mrs. ELIZABETH FREEMAN, of Edith- Weston afore- said Bread- baker, of selling Bread short of the legal Weight at Assize, and also made Use of other improper and unjustifiable Language, reflecting'on Mrs. FREEMAN'S Character and Conduct as a Bread- baker, accompanied with personal Threats, for which Offences she had resolved to commence an Action at Law against me; but, in Consideration of my Family, and of my asking her Pardon publicly, she hath generously consented to forgive me. N. I the said ROBERT LARRATT do freely own and acknowledge that all such Accusations and Insinuations used by me as afore were utterly false and groundless, and I do hereby humbly in Mrs. FREEMAN'S Pardon for having used them, and do undertake and promise never to be guilty of the like Conduct again but in future to behave orderly and peaceably to Mrs. FREEMAN . and all her Family. Witness my Hand this Fifteenth Day of August, 1789, ' ROBERT LARRATT. Witness, NICHOLAS Needham. this will be paring down the livings with a vengence for many of the country parishes, particularly in Nor- mandy, are worth 700I. a year. Letters from Paris sayt that it is the intention of the National Assembly to reduce the standing army of France to 80,000 effective men, and to embody provincial bri- gades of militia, nearly 0n the plan of that in England, who are to be called out and eXercised occasionly, or at periods, in the same manner. The foreign regiments to be disbanded; the officers, if they choose, to be pro- moted in the national troops, as vacancies occur. A committee of the National Assembly is shortly to he appointed, to revise all the municipal charters, in order to ascertain the rights and immunities of all corporations, to abrogate all obsolete and absurd customs and distinc- tions, and put the privileges of the freeman on a stable and rational footing. Though the National Assembly are indefatigable in their endeavours to restore order and tranquillity in the capital and country ; yet the disturbances are not entirely fubsided and every day brings accounts of fresh tumults in some quarter or other. At Rouen the populace seem particularly riotous, and the distant provinces are perpe- tually exhibiting instances of the rage of the inhabitants. By the unremitted exertions, however, of the popular party matters are every where taking a better turn. The roads are become safer, under the care of the militia; and tumult and disorder begin gradually to disappear. In the mean time the defeated party failing of success by open force, are as indefatigable in giving fresh proofs of their disposition to do all the mischief in their power. Matches of sulphur and other combustibles have been, found near the doors of several houses by the patroles, in different parts of the city. Eight of the city seals have been carried off, by means of which, and the forged hand- writing of the members of the committee, particularly those of M. Bailly and M. de la Fayette, orders of the most dangerous conse- quence are continually discovered to have been issued ; the placards calculated to tranquilize the people and restore order, are pulled down at night, & c. See. All good citizens therefore are desfired to be On their guard, until proper measures are adopted to prevent the possibi- lity of such traitorous proceedings. Two squadrons of patriotic cavalry, and a body ot infantry, went to the castle of M. de Goyon, an old Lieutenant- General, five leagues from Nantes, a few days ago, where numerous assemblies of the nobles have been lately held; but they found only one of the most active, M. de Tremarga. who fired at the people of Rennei from his windows on the 27th. He was con- veyed prisoner to the castle of Nantes, from whence he will be removed to Rennes. They suffered M. de Goyan to remain undisturbed, on account of his great age, he being past eighty, yet a most virulent partizan of the nobles. M. de Brissac was likewise taken, and sent to Ancenis, from whence he made his escape. Du Rocher, son of Du Rocher of infamous memory in the old times of despotism, and Captain of the Mare- chaussee at Chaillot, was put to death on Monday, and , another of the same complexion at Passy. The causes , of this act of violence are not cleared up, but are said to have originated in some real or supposed act of trea- chery meditated agianst the perfon of M. Bailly, whose countrv- house is at Chaillot. They were shot by the Swiss soldiers, who do duty with the townsmen. All the houshold of the Comte D'Artois is to be dis- missed, his horses, carriages, houses, & c. to be sold. The armed citizens of Lyons being informed of the intention of a band of villains to attack and pillage that city, marched out to meet them, and falling unexpectedly upon them, killed 60 and made many prisoners; but learning that the populace of the Fauxbourg de la Guil- lotiere intended to way- lay them, and release the pri- soners, they returned by the Rhone, and, after commit- ting their prisoners to custody, marched to the Fauxbourg, which these wretches had unpaved, and had mounted on the roofs of the houses to stone the citizens; they had likewise formed barricadoes. The commander of the citizens, after remonstrating with them in vain, took possession of some of the houses, and firing at the fellows on the roofs, brought down a great number of them ; who falling into the streets with the stones they had in their hands, struck terror into the rest, who instantly sub- mitted, and tranquillity was restored. At the Abbey of Clurey, the Monks behaved with great heroism. Being threatened by an immense number of banditti, they got together a few peasants, whom they armed as well as themselves, and placed four cannon with grape shot in the court. The villains appeared at night ; but no sooner had they forced the gates, than a general fire of cannon and musquetry laid a hundred on the ground, and the rest took to flight. A few such exam- ples will put all right, and destroy the last hopes of aristocracy. The clergy to their credit have given up their right to tithes, and thrown themselves entirely on the mercy of the people with whom they have agreed to pay an equal quota in all taxes to be levied for the use of the public. A criminal was ordered to be broke on the wheel alive, and then burnt, for having murdered his father at Ver- sailles ; but the Deputies of the National Assembly, learning that the fact was not premeditated, but arising from a fit of passion, and in a struggle with the father, who wanted to compel him to marry his [ the father's] concubine, went in a body out of the hall, calling Out " Pardon! Pardon!" and rescued the unhappy victim, who lay already stretched on the wheel, expecting the first blow from the hands of the executioner.— The father had pardoned the young man on his death- bed. LONDON. A ridiculous report has been lately blazoned forth by one of the daily papers, of an attempt to assassinate the King.— The whole, as we learn, originates in the reveries of an unfortunate maniac at Weymouth, who wrote several letters to his Majesty, which were inter- cepted, and the man properly secured. By a gentleman just arrived from Rotterdam, we learn, that on Friday se'nnight, being the Princess of Orange's birth- day, a man was stabbed in the street, and killed on the spot, for obstinately refusing to wear an orange ribband. We learn from indisputable authority, that the Russian fleet have, by the running skirmish of the 26th ult. compleatly accomplished their object. They have been joined by the lesser squadron ; but a circumstance has happened likely to produce serious consequences. The Russian squadron was convoyed and protected by the Danish fleet, notwithstanding the declared neutrality i and it is now a question, whether giving their protection to that squadron by which the junction, was ascertained, and such a superiority given to the Ruffian fleet as to make it impossible for the enemy to keep the sea, be not an infraction of the declared neutrality, on the part of Denmark ? This is a question in which of course England comes to be involved, and which perhaps we shall be obliged to consider as a national insult. The Russian fleet now consists of thirty- two sail.— THe Swedish of twenty- four. The latter are gone into port. But for the misconduct of the vice- admiral of the Swedish fleet, there might have been a decisive action on the 26th ult. In the late running fight between the Swedes and Russians, two frigates of the former power absolutely silenced two sixty- fours of the latter. The Duke of Sudermania, with two other ships, were attacked closely by five of the largest Russian men of war, during which time the Duke made fifteen dif- ferent signals to his vice- admiral to attack such ships as were pointed out before the engagement, but the Admiral did not obey the signals, nor fired a single gun; if he had, the Duke avers, that he should most assuredly have been master of at least five Russian men of war. A Major of the corps of Yagers in Savolax haS brought immediate intelligence to Stockholm, that Brigadier Stedingk had attacked the corps of Russians under General Schultz, near Partumati by Nyslot, and had entirely destroyed them. That the Russian General had, however, made his escape— but he had taken prisoner Major Toll, the commandant of Nyslot, together with 24 officers, and 650 rank and file, 1 metal howitzer, 5 cannon, z standards, and 15 ammunition waggons. The Swedes had 6 subalterns, and 42 rank and file killed, and 131 wounded. His Majesty, in consequence ot the bravery of Brigadier Stedingk, instantly promoted him to the rank of Major- General in his service. The account in continuation states, that General Meyerfeldt had sent a party from the pass at Hogsfors, and taken possession of the passes of Summer, which are within one mile and a half of Fredericksham— and that he had sent a train of artillery by water thither, the better to attack the town. The directors of the East- India company have come to a resolution that of 32 ships which they will take up for the present season, 1789, 14 of them shall go to China direct, and home again, for the more full supply of the markets. M. Bosanquet, the banker, has purchased Lord Mon- son's seat, at Broxburn Bury, for 50,0001. The late General Fitzwilliam distributed his fortune in the following manner:— To his housekeepcr, an annu- ity of 5001. per annum, to his nephew Lord Fitzwilliam, a legacy of 500I. to Lord Amherst, 500I. to another gentleman, 500I. his house on Richmond- green, with the residue of his fortune, to the amount of 50,000l. to Tom Jones, a young foundling Welchman, whom he had brought up as a musician. In Holland, when a minister. or clergyman, meddles in politics, or state affairs, the magistrate sends him a pair of shoes, as a hint for him to quit his flock, which if he does not take he is drove out of his parish with ignominy. It would be very advantageous for the lea- ther trade if such a custom was followed in this country. The Marchioness of Landsdown's death was so imme diate, that on the preceding day she dined with the Mar- quis in the usual dining parlour. On that day, however, she chose to dine in her dressing room ; and, in conse- quence, her sister, Miss Vernon, proposed remaining with her. A moment before her death, her Ladyship arose from her chair, and walked to the bell; while ringing it she funk on the floor; Miss Vernon instantly ran to her and conveyed her to a sopha, but she expired soon after she was seated in it. Her Ladyship had said in the morning, " that she knew she should not out- live that day." Lately passed the great seal, a grant for an invention for sweeping chimnies, without the necessity of boys climbing up. We are informed, that the method is so simple, so effectual, and so easy, that a servant may perform the operation every morning, if necessary, in the course of a few minutes. On Wednesday last, at Stevenage, in Hertfordshire, an antiquated couple made shift to hobble into the temple of Hymen, whose joint ages amounted to 143 years ; the bridegroom, of the name of Piggot, a cooper in his 75th year, having plighted his troth to the widow Kit- chiner, aged 68. What renders this alliance the more remarkable is, the amorous couple had formed this attachment in their juvenile days, and though fortune, till now, never crowned their mutual wishes, they have contrived to fulfil the scriptural text, " increase and mul- tiply," bv a propagation of the human species, to the number of one hundred children and grand- children Monday the walking sawyer, and Thomas Morgan, a Greenwich stage- coachman, ran ten miles on Black- heath, for ten guineas : The sawyer was beat by about half a mile ; Morgan performed his task in an hour and 23 minutes.

INSURRECTION IN FRANCE. Paris, August 6. On Tuesday last the King notified to the national assembly the following appointments, viz. the Archbishop of Vienne, secretary of state for eccelesiastical benefices ; the Archbishop of Bordeaux, garde des Seeaux ; M. de la Tour du Pin, Minister for the war department, and the Prince de Beauveau a member of the council. The evening assembly met at eight o'clock on that day, and continued sitting till near two in the morning, having passed, by a very great majority, twenty- two articles, forming in part the basis of the constitution, which were confirmed by the national assembly this day. These articles include an equal taxation ; a renunciation of a privileges, whether personal, provincial or muni- cipal ; redemption of feudatory rights; various sup- pressions and abolitions of particular jurisdictions, duties and services ; abolition of the sale of offices ; justice free of expence for the people; admission for all citizens to civil and military offices ; a medal to be struck in commemoration of this event ; Te Deum to be performed in the King's chapel, and throughout the kingdom ; and his Majesty to be proclaimed the restorer of French liberty. Paris, August 13. The unexampled violences every where committed in this country, though the capital at present enjoys a state of tranquility, have induced the necessity of putting the provost law into immediate and full force, for the speedy execution of justice; and his most Christian Majesty's edict to that effect was yester- day regiftered in parliament. The new code of muni- cipal laws, comprehending* the general police of this city, is completed, and its operations are directed at the Hotel de Ville to begin from this day.-— Gazette. The London Gazette of Saturday, has given a brief state of what has been done in the national assembly towards the establishment of a free constitution. So general, fo unequivocal are the articles in favour of the people, that even the game laws are abrogated ; not however for the sport or profit of the vagabond or the poacher, but that the farmer and holder of property may enjoy it in common with the nobility. Before the Duke of Dorset left Paris, he sent another letter to the French Minister, and which was read in the national assembly on the 4th inst. Letter from the Duke of Dorset, Ambassador from England, to M. le Comte dc Montmorin, Secretary of State for the department of foreign affairs. " Sir, Paris, Aug. 3, 1789. " My court, to which I gave an account of the letter that I had the honour to write to your Excellency on the 16th of July, and which you had the goodness to communicate to the National Assem- bly, has by a dispatch of the 31st ult. which I have received this instant, not only approved of my conduct, but specially authorised me to express again to you, in the most positive terms, the ardent desire of his Britannic Majesty, and his Ministers, to cultivate and encourage the friendship and harmony which subsists so happily between the two nations. " It is so much the more pleasant to me to announce to you these renewed assurances of harmony and good understanding, as it cannot fail but that the greatest good must result from a permanent friendship between the two nations. And that it is to be desired still the more, as nothing can contribute so much to the tranquility of Europe, as the co- operation of these two powers. " I shall be obliged to you to communicate to the President of the National Assembly, this confirmation of the sentiments of the King and his Ministers. " I have the honour to be, very sincerely. Sir, your Excellency's very humble and obedient servant, " DORSET," This letter was read in the Assembly with much appa- rent satisfaction, and was ordered to be printed and pub- lished, to confirm in the minds of the people the impres- sion of the honourable conduct of the English nation, which the Duke's first letter had successfully made. The National Assembly have come to the following resolutions: First.— The National Assembly ordain, that in future no money shall be sent to the court of Rome, to the Vice- Legateship of Avignon, nor to the Nunciat of Lucerne, for any religious purpose whatever ; but the parishioners shall apply to their Bishops for benefices and dispensations, which shall be granted to them gratis, notwithstanding any privilege or exception to the contrary. All churches in France should enjoy the same liberty. The Deports, Droits de Cote- morte depouilles, Vacat, Droits censaux, Peter's pence,, and other rights of the same kind, established in favour of Bishops, Archdeacons, Canons, Curates, & c. are hereby utterly abolished, except they should belong to Archdeaconships, or cura- cies not sufficiently provided. Secondly.— No person shall in future hold a benifice or benefices exceeding the annual income of 3000 livres. No person shall enjoy pensions or benefices to a greater amount than the above sum of 3000 livres. v Thirdly.— On the delivery of the account which shall be laid before the Assembly, of the state of pensions and rewards, the Assembly, in concert with the King, shall proceed to suppress those that have not been merited, and to reduce such as shall appear excessive, reserving to themselves the power of determining a certain sum which the King shall dispose of in future to such purposes. The sum which the Assembly intend to allow the Rectors of country parishes, in lieu of tithes, is no more than 1 500 livres, or about o guineas a year. Fridays Post by Express. LONDON, ThUrSdAy evENINg. His Majesty, the Queen, and Princesses remain in the best health and spirits.— They were at Plymouth on Sunday. The Prince of Wales, Dukes of York, and Clarence, were expected yesterday to attend his Majesty at the re- view of the fleet near Plymouth sound. There are few scenes of pleasure without some inter- ruption. That of the Royal excursion has been dashed by an accident which must give the utmost pain to the Royal bosom, as well as the surrounding multitude. A sloop without ballast was crouded to view ths Royal procession ; numbers were thoughtless enough to climb up the mast, which depriving her of her balance, she overset, and at least forty persons perished. The Royal Family feel the most poignant distress on account of the unfortunate circumstance. We have now to announce, that the system to be estabished in France, and which is not only proposed, but actually determined on, is, that all those titles, on which the nobility have for so many centuries placed such value, are to be abolished, and the ancient peerage of the realm levelled in common, with all other distinc- tions. The King is to retain his title and his supremacy, as head of the people; but he is to be so restricted by the laws of the national assembly, as to have the shadow without the substance of Monarchy, the ostensible pos- session, whilst the people are the real proprietors of the crown. And what further subverts the ancient constitution of France,— the private hereditary rights of whose pro- vinces are taken away,— rights of property that cen- turies on centuries have guaranteed, and which every court of justice in the universe must allow to be legally, constitutionally, and properly founded. Tuesday came on at Ryegate, in Surrey, the election of a representaiive in Parliament for that place, when Lord Hood was chosen without opposition. The Lord Chancellor and Lord Kenyon both agree in this, that the present state of paper credit in this coun- try, is a subject which requires the most serious attention of the Legislature. The accommodation notes of many fallen houses, like a pestilence, have spread their per- nicious effects through every part of the kingdom, and have proved the ruin of many virtuous and respectable families. Yesterday was married, at St. Peter's, Cornhill, Lord Massarene, to the Lady who accompanied him to England.— His Lordship has been twice married to this Lady in France. A letter from Northampton, dated Tuesday, August 18, says, " Mr. Gordon who had been reported to have received a third respite was executed here this day.—- He went in a mourning coach to the fatal tree, attended by two clergymen, where his behaviour was quite resigned, and becoming his unhappy fate.— The surgeons declining to receive his body, it was delivered to his friends." CORN LETTER. Mark- Lane, Monday, August 17. Several samples of new wheat made their appearance at our market to- day, which being of a fine quality sold as high as 56s. per quarter, together with a small quantity of superfine white of the old year, at an early hour ; but the general arrival ( being more than equal to the demand at present) was taken off very slowly at 51I. to 53s. per quarter for the best runs, during the first of the morning, and upon still lower terms afterwards, especially for the midling and ordinary sorts.— 1956 quarters were sold, viz STAMFORD, AUG. 21. Wentworth House, the seat of Earl Fitzwilliam, will soon exhibit a scene of elegant festivity, which will do ho- nour to the munificent owner. Nine additional rooms are fitting up in the post beautiful and liberal style; and six Germans have been employed for fome time in decorating the saloon with lamps, & c. as a hall room, for the reception of the Royal brothers, and a select number of people of the first rank and consequence.— Dr. Miller, of Doncaster, is busily employed in engaging for Earl Fitzwilliam as good a band of music as the country will produce, for a grand ball to be given at Wentworth House, on Wednesday the 2d of September, for the amusement of their Royal High- nesses the Prince of Wales and the Duke of York; and also a band of wind instruments, which are to be continued for a few days after the hall. The Royal brothers have signified their intention of ho- nouring the city by taking a dinner at the Mansion- house, where every preparation is making to receive them suitable to their illustrious rank. Their Royal Highnesses are expected to pass thro' this place on Saturday or Sunday next. On Friday the Lady of Sir John Thorold, Bart, was de- livered of a son, at Sydon Park, in this county. Wednesday last was married at St. Mary's church, Bury, bv the Rev. Dr. Onslow, Sir Patrick Blake, Bart, of Lang- ham, to Miss Phipps, of Bury, daughter of James Phipps, Esq; late Member in Parliament for Peterborough. On the 6th inst. was married at Ashby- de- la- Zouch, Mr. Smith, attorney, to Miss Vincent; the daughter of Mr. Vincent, surgeon, both of the aforesaid place. On Friday se'nnight died, Richard Hattley, Esq; of St. Neot's, Huntingdonshire. Last week died, Mr. Templeman, farmer, of Carlby, in this county. On Friday last died at Barlbrough, in Derbyshire, Mr. John Norborn, in the 95th year of his age, Wednesday morning died at Leicester, Simpkin. Her husband left her perfectly well at six o'clock, and at nine found her dead in bed. Last week died at Leicester, Mrs. Marshall, wife of Mr. Joseph Marshall, watchmaker, of that place. On Saturday night died suddenly, at Leicester, Joseph Bull, carpenter. He went to bed a little before his wife, who soon following him, found him lifeless. On Sunday morning died suddenly, at Belgrave- mills, near Leicester, Mr. Swain, miller. He attended Leicester market, the preceding day, and appeared as healthy as usual. On Monday the 10th instant died suddenly, at her house at Willington, Derbyshire, Mrs Sale, a maiden lady, aged 73. Same day died suddenly, at High Field, near Sheffield, as she was throwing a silk handkerchief round the neck of a person who had requested it, Mrs. Baker, widow. Monday last as a child of Mr. G. Marriot's, Uppingham, was at play in the street, it was accidentally run over by a cart loaded with flour, which broke one of its thighs. A mor- tification was dreaded, but there are now hopes of its recovery. A hog— a gown piece-— and a tea- kettle— was won by lot- tery— for the trifling sum of nine or ten pounds— at a mountebank's stage in St. Martin's, Stamford Baron, yester- day evening.— After the caution given last week to the pub- lic, the wary surely could not contribute to the extravagance of a vagrant— the ignorant, we again repeat, claim pro- tection_. Abstract of the several duties upon horses. Every person who keeps horses, mares, or geldings, for the purpose of riding, or for the purpose of drawing any coach, berlin, landau, chariot, calash, chaise, or other car- riage, by whatsoever name or names such carriage or carriages now are or hereafter may be called, which shall be used at any time for the carriage or conveyance of persons, are subject to the under- mentioned duties: One — o 1 o 0 Four — J 2 6 Two — 150 Five — 3180 Three — 250 Six — 5190 ' And for every horse, & c. above six, ll. in addition to the above. In order to give all possible encouragement to the fisheries of Great Britain, round the coasts, every restriction formerly laid on is removed, the bounties are increased, and the fol- lowing regulations enacted: That liberty be granted of making use of fuch netting as the fishermen shall find best adapted, provided each buss carries a specified quantity of nets; that during the intervals of fishing the vessels may be em- ployed in any other business not prohibited by law ; and that there should be permission for making use of any waste or un- cultivated ground, loo yards at least above the highest water mark : They are not to be confined with respect to the thick- ness of the staves, as heretofore, iu the barrels for packing the fish. These arrangements, with liberal bounties, will make the coast fifheries of this country almost equal to the Dutch. ' Defects in trees cured.— To Cure the defect in trees, or bark of timber trees, or trees that are hollow :— Thinly lay on tar to the part affected, and clay ( mixed like mortar) to fill up the hole. or cover the place; after which let it be covered with cow- dung, to prevent the air from getting to it. This has been Frequently used, with astonishing success. ASSIZE INTELLIGENCE. ' At Norwich, Mary Bunn, the wife of a respectable farmer, was tried for stealing four remnants of printed cotton out of the shop of Messrs. Lewis and Hayward.— This was a cause of a very extraordinary nature, the facts being Clearly proved; but the defence set up was, that the prisoner, who was preg- nant, conceived an irresistible longing for the goods in ques- tion, and the jury having sufficient faith in this evidence, brought in their verdict, Not guilty. At Coventry, a bill of indictment was found by the grand jury against John Hewitt, Esq. One of the alderman of the said city, for unlawfully, and contrary to the duties of his office as a magistrate, refusing and neglecting to give judgment on sundry informations laid before him against different per- sons in that city licenced to let out horses to hire for travel- ling post. At Warwick, came on before the HOn. Sir Nash Grose, Knight, and a respectable jury, the trial of Thomas Wale the elder, Joseph Cater the elder, churchwardens and over- seers of the poor of the parish of Sow, partly in the said county, and partly in the county of Coventry; Thomas Tucky, of the same parish, victualler, and Thomas Iorns, of the parish of Stoke, in the said county of Coventry, sawyer, for a conspiracy in bringing about, and procuring by improper means, a marriage to he had between one Joseph Dee, a parishioner of the parish of Stonleigh, in the said county of Warwick, and one Elizabeth Horne ( a loose and disorderly woman), a pauper and a parishioner of the said parish of Sow, and thereby removing her settlement from Sow to Stonleigh, in right of the said Joseph Dee, under the said marriage ; when, after a hearing of near four hours, they were found GUILTY, to the satisfaction of the learned Judge, and a crowded court; and were, thereupon, sentenced to be im- prisoned fix months in the goal of the said county of War- wick, and that Cater and Wale should pay a fine of sol. each, and be imprisoned till payment thereof.— It is to be hoped that the stigma which the above verdict has fixed upon those thereby found guilty, will deter all others from a line of con- duct so unjust and dishonourable. At the above assizes, the two following prisoners were capitally convicted, and received sentence of death, viz. Matthew Delaine, for assaulting and cruelly beating Mary Pane, in Birmingham, and taking from her person divers articles of wearing apparel; and William Hutchins, for feloniously breaking into the dwelling house of Abraham Eades, and stealing thereout 11 guineas in gold, and divers goods and wearing apparel. The latter is reprieved, and Delaine is left for execution. At Shrewsbury, seven persons received sentence of death, viz. William Jones and John Jones, for assaulting Mary Challinor, and robbing her of a crown piece in silver, & c. also for assaulting William Preston, and robbing him of 12s. 6d. in silver; Richard Price, for robbing Susannah Tonge; and also feloniously ravishing her at the same time; Thomas Phipps the elder, and Thomas Phipps the younger, for a for- gery ; Rowland Edwards, for stealing a black gelding; and Thomas Andrews, for stealing divers articles out of a shop in Shrewsbury.— The three former are left for execution ; the Phipps's respited for one month; and the two latter re. prieved. John Baker, convicted last York assizes of grand larceny and left for execution, is respited during his Majesty's plea- sure. Meteorological Journal of the weather in Stamford. BY MR. RAYMENT.

On Tuesday last died, Mrs. Hancer, widow of the late Mr. James Hancer, master of the Pack Horse, in this town. Last Saturday night a man had the impudunce to steal a truss from the door of Mr. William Simpson, draper, in this town, before eight o'clock ; and notwithstanding the most diligent search was made for him almost immediately, he got off undiscovered. Since our last 3560 quarters of oats, 32oo bushels of malt, 750 quarters of oatmeal, 400 quarters of wheat, 300 quar- ters of small beans, and 100 quarters of pease, have been imported at Liverpool from Ireland. LINCOLN, AUG. 20. the Lord Chancellor passed through this city on Thursday in his way to Scarborough. After dining at the Rein Deer, he pursued his journey to Brigg that evening. On the 4th instant the Lady of Lieutenant- General Hale, was safely delivered of a son, being her 21st child, at his seat at Leaven- Grove, in Yorkshire. On Tuesday last was married, Mr. Lockwood, of York, 19 Miss Moss, daughter of Mr. John Moss, grocer, of this city. Wednesday se'nnight was married, at Peniston, Mr. Joseph Charlesworth, an eminent wheelwright, of Thurs- tone, aged 30, to Mrs. Ann Woodhead, of Hoyland- swain aged 25. What is remarkable, this - is his fifth wife, and he her third husband. Yesterdav morning died, Mr. John Kent, wholesale linen- draper, and an alderman of this city. Last week arrived in this town from America, after nine weeks passage, Mrs. Eliza Davies, with her two daughters, natives of that country, and wife of Mr. John Davies, of this city, who lived near twenty years as a merchant at Charles Town, South Carolina. This gentleman and his family were among the number of those unfortunate persons who suffered all the calamities and miseries incident to civil war, during the unfortunate disssentions in North America. He was closely confined on board a loathsome prison ship seventeen weeks, during the most Sickly and hottest season of the year, for refusing to fight against his countrymen ; and while imprisoned by the Americans, and personally exposed to the dangers of a long siege, his house and plantation were plundered of every article of property by the opposite party; his family not only deprived of every comfort and necessary of life, but likewise of every kind of provision, and hourly exposed to the insult and abuse of a licencious soldiery, who threatened to murder them On every complaint of their cruelty and ill treatment. Such misfortunes, and such heartfelt distress, are little known in this happy country; where good laws and good government effectually protect every individual in his person and property. On Saturday se'nnight died at his house in York, aged upwards of 80, Mr. Joseph Randall, formerly master of academy at Heath, near Wakefield. Thursday afternoon as three young men were bathing in the river at Ferrybridge, two of them, by going out of their depth, and neither of them able to swim, were unfortunately drowned, They were under water about twenty minutes ; and when they were found every possible means were used to bring them back to life, but without effect. Last week, a man servant belonging to Sir R. S. Cotton, Bart, of Cumbermere Abbey got up in his sleep, and went through the window ( two stories high) and fell to the ground, in a gravel walk; he is so much bruised that his life is in danger. An eel was caught in Whitehaven harbour, on Monday night, which measured four feet nine inches in length, six- teen inches in girth, and weighed twenty- two pounds. Christopher Hartly, the person for whom search was made in Whitehaven, on a violent suspicion of having committed the murder of Miss Corbridge, of Barnside, near Whilley, was apprehended on Saturday the 1st instant, at the house of Peter Butler, farmer, of Cartmel, to whom he had engaged himfelf to work as an hired servant for six months. The dis- covery was made by means of a letter which he had written to his father at Barnside, not knowing that be had been com- mitted on account of the murder; the letter, having to pass into the post- office at Lancaster, was of course delivered to a magistrate ; and, on opening it, the necessary information was obtained. Some other of the family had been secured, but only the father and son are committed to Lancaster goal, to take their trial at the ensuing assizes. , Singular circumstance.— On Saturday the 1st inst. as one Redmond was passing by the window of a tap- room In Capel- street, Dublin, a person Called him familiarly by his name, requesting him to Walk in and take share of a glass of some- thing with him, which Redmond refused, dreading him to be a swindler, as he had not the most distant reCollection of him :—" pray, Sir, oblige me," said the other. " and I will give you 40 guineas," putting a purse of gold into his hand; on which Redmond ( very much surprized was for returning the money, thinking the other meant to turn him into ridicule ; when he was accOsted in the following manner —" Pray, Mr. Redmond, do you recollect your lending forty guineas to an intimate friend about thirty years ago. when you and your friend were both very young men?" ' Yes, I do,' replied Redmond, ' but I heard he was drowned, and was more conCerned for his death than for the money.'—" You were mistaken then, replied the other, " I am the identical person to whom you so generously lent your money; you shall have the principal in that purse, and if you come to Derham's and take a chop wiih me, you shall have the interest with grateful thanks; for though I was very poor when I borrowed your money, thank God, I am rich enough at present, so much so, that if you stand in need of a few hundreds, ask them and have them." Redmond thanked him for his friendly offer, which he declined; but accompanied his old friend and debtor to Derham's, where he received tbe legal interest of his forty guineas for thirty years — a good dinner, and as much Madeira and Claret as he could drink.— This is really a fact, and deserves to be recorded HULL, August 17.

James Rouquet, B A. of Hert- ford College, Oxford, and Chaplain to the Right Hon. the Earl of Deloraine, to the vicarage of West Harptree, in the county of Somerset, and diocese of Bath and Wells. On Monday se'nnight was nominated by the warden and fellows of the Collegiate- church, at Manchester, the Rev. Joshua Brooks, M. A. and assistant master at the Free Gram- mar school in that town, to the perpetual cuiacy of Chorlton, void by the death of the Rev. Mr. Salter. Thursday last Mr. Richard Clark, of Royston, grocer, was married to Miss Nancy Wilkin, daughter of Mr. Wm. Wilkin, attorney, of Soham, in this county. Sunday se'nnight Mr. Head, baker, of Bury, was married to Miss Prior, of Wood- ditton, near Newmarket. Thursday se'nnight died suddenly, at Lymington, near Ilchester, the Rev. John Clothier, M. A. rector of that place. Saturday se'nnight died, the Rev. Thomas Goddard, M. A vicar of South Petherton, and Clevedon, in the county of Somerset, and Minister of Barrow, in the same county. Friday last died, after a lingering illness, which he bore with the utmost patience and resignation,, Mr. Charles Pun- chard, bookseller, of Ipswich. A few days ago died, of a consumption, in the 23d year of her age, Mrs. Pearson, wife of Mr. James Pearson, far- mer, at Northrepps, in the county of Norfolk, and only sur- viving child of Mr. John Sparshall, of Northwalsham ; who has now lived to see his " once fair spreading family" swept away by this fell disease, having in the space of about a dozen years, buried his wife and six children. Extraordinary vicissitudes in life.— A person in Norwich, who has hitherto remained in a menial situation, has lately become possessed of property to the amount of 1o000l. the legal heir to which had been advertised for several times with- out success. Sunday last as Capt. Topham editor of that eccentric paper Called The World, accompanied by Mr. Reynolds, was coming from London, in his way to Norwich, in a cur- ricle and four, the pole broke at Chapel- hill, neat Bradfield, about four miles from Bury; by which accident thev were thrown out of the carriage, but received no hurt. A drove of geele coming by at the same instant, ( whether attracted by any supernatural cause we know not) six of them were trampled to death ; and the drovers, in pursuing their jour- ney, vented curses on these distinguished travellers for refu- sing to indemnify them for their loss. Last Monday night, Mr. Williams and family, of Brat- ton school, in Wilts, were alarmed from sleep by a dreadful fire, which burst out of the roof of their house.' The con- sternation occasioned by this event; at such a time, is inex- pressible. By the mercy of Providence, however, not a single person of nearly fifty was hurt. Such was the vehe- mence of the flames, that the greater part of the clothes and furniture were consumed with the house. On Monday se'nnight Edward Everett, late of Barrow, in Suffolk, was committed lo our castle for further exa- mination, he having offered three silver table spoons for sale at Chippenham, and not being able to give a satisfactory ac- count how he came bv them. Tuesday Robert Knights, of Clouden, in Leicestershire, was convicted before James Oakes, Esq; in the penalty of 10l. for hawking earthenware about Bury, not being duly licensed for that purpose; when for want of effects to answer the same, he was committed to our goal for the space of one month. , Sunday se'nnight, about four o'clock, in the afternoon, William Wells, a convict under sentence of transportation for felony, broke out of Lynn goal; he was seen in Marsh- land, making his way towards Wisbech. The goaler has offered a considerable reward for his apprehension. Monday last an inquisition was taken at Newmarket, on the body of Mr. Charles O'Conner, an eminent farrier who the night before tumbled off his horse, and broke his neck. For the Stamford, & c.

L0UTH, August 17th, 1789. WHIMSICAL EPITAPH, In a Country Churchyard. READER, I've left this world, in which I had a world to do, Sweating and fretting to be rich, Just such a fool as you. 6d. never be departed from. At the same time, his Lordship observed, that the gentlemen of the jury were infinitely better judges than he, of what would be most convenient 0n this subject, and of what Would be most for the benefit of commerce. The legislature alone, however, had power to make any alterations in it; and it was his duty to adminster the law as it now stood. NOCTAMBULATION. AReport has lately been made to the philosophical Society at Lousanne, in Swizerland, by commis- sioners appointed to enquire into the case of a boy named Devaud, aged bctweed thirteen and fourteen years, who had every indication of an extreme irritabi- lity of nerves— of which the following is a summary. " The patient, though apparently stout and robust, possessed the senses of smell, taste and feeling, in the highest state of delicacy, and he was subject to involun- tary fits of laughing and weeping. His disorder was very irregular with respect to the periods of return ; sometimes several weeks intervented between the pa- roxysms, which, at others, attacked him two or three nights successively. They generally commenced be- tween three and four o'clock in the morning, and some- times lasted three or four hours. A paroxysm might be accelerated, or prolonged, by tickling his nose with a feather, or by whatever caused a slight irritation of the nerves. On the evening before the fit, he was gener- ally observed to complain, after supper, of a heaviness in his head and eyelids; and his sleep, which was sel- dom very quiet, was then attended with more agitation than usual. When the paroxysm came on, he muttered broken sentences, in a manner scarce intelligible, start- ed up in his bed, then lay down again, till at length he rose and pursued the ideas which his dreams suggested ; these were such as commonly occur to lads of his age ; but he is particularly Afraid of thieves and apparations, and if a story be told relative to either of these, it is certain to influence his dreams, which are observed to be of a more melancholy and terrifying nature, when he eats more than usual at supper. His recovery is al- ways preceded by a tranquil sleep during two or three minutes, attended, however, with snoring ; after which he rubs his eyes, and awakes without any recollection of what has happened; but feels himself fatigued, and sometimes sick; when the commissioners saw him, this was accompanied with violent vomiting, from which he soon recovered. To awaken him suddenly is dan- gerous, as it has been found to throw him into violent convulsions from the fright which it occasioned. During the paroxysm, his smell is very acute, and he expresses his dislike to any disagreeable odour that is presented him : when some wormwood wine was offered to him, he said, he knew by the smell, that it was not the wine he drank at table ; some of the latter being given him, he drank it with avidity ; but it rendered him more eager and vehement in his words and actions, and even occasioned involuntary twitches in his coun- tenance. At these times he dresses himself with great, regularity ; one night; when his cloaths were laid on a large table, intermixed with those Of others, he per- ceived the trick that had been played, and complained of it; but a small taper being brought, he was seen to dress himself with the utmost exactness. If any one slightly pinches him, he immediately feels it, unless very earnestly employed, and endeavours to strike the offender; but his resentment is directed, not against the person who has thus disturbed him, but against the ideal phantom of his dream, after which he will run with great violence round the room, without touching the furniture ; nor can he be diverted from the pursuit. When he wants to look at an object, he endeavours to open his eyes; but this is not effected without diffi- culty, nor can he raise the eyelid above a line or two, and his eyes appear fixed and dull. When told that any thing is offered to him, he will thus open his eyes, and shuts them again as soon as he has taken what was presented- In one of his noctambulations, the commissioner: persuaded him to write an exercise; this happening to coincide with his dream, he lighted a candle, took pen, ink, and paper, out of his table- drawer, and wrote the exercise dictated to him. At another time, he did this of his own accord, and, as he was going to begin, he either perceived or remembered, that something had already been written on the upper part of the leaf, and immediately began lower down, where the paper was fair; while writing, he recollected that he had spelt a word or two wrong, and, instantly recurring to them, made the proper corrections ; if, while he was thus en- gaged, any thing was held before his eyes, so as to in- tercept the light of the candle, he still continued to write, and to form his letters with the same exactness as before; but complained of the interruption. In one of his paroxysms, he took into his head to write a piece consisting of text, round hand, and running hand, in order, as he said, to please his master. This he per- formed with great care, taking the proper pen for each kind of writing, and afterwards asking for a pen- knife, erased a blot of ink that had fallen between two letters, without damaging either of them. When he thus sits down to write, he generally opens his eyes to ascertain the position of the ink- stand, but closes them again di- rectly, and afterwards dips the pen in it with the utmost exactness ; when it had been removed without his know- ledge, he continued to carry his hand and pen to the place where it had stood, till he came to the level of its height, when not finding it, complained of the decep- tion; and, opening his eyes, perceived the ink- stand, and replaced it where it stood at first. From these, and several phenomena of the same kind, the commissioners infer, that, in this patient, the office of the senses is not, during sleep, suspended with such perceptions as relate to the objects, concerning which his imagination is intensely employed. In order to dis- cern objects, and to determine those accidents of rela- tive locality, which memory could not suggest, he is sometimes obliged to open his eyes; but the impression thus received, however rapidly made, is so lively, that it need not to be repeated ; for the idea is thus as distinctly represented to his imagination, as if he con- tinued to behold the object that excited it. Thus all his senses seem to be subordinate to his imagination; to be, as it were, concentred in the object, concerning which it is employed, and to admit of no perceptions except such as have some relation to it." .

Farnham body grounds, it is said, are not likely to yield more than 2 cwt. per acre. Some parts of Sussex promise kindly, but the bulk of their plantations are bad. The strong grounds of Kent in general yield to the disaster. It is now certain, the sample will be ordinary in the main, and without a continuance of bright weather, unripe. Where there is plenty of bine, the bur forms into hops very slowly. The duty is laid at 52, oo0l. Essex and North Clay plantations are rated at half a crop. BANKRUPTS.

Tht following IMPORTANT CONVERSATION respecting BiLLs, which took place in the COURT KING'S BENCH, GUILDHALL, LONDON, in a cause that • was tried on the 23 d ult. before LORD KENYON and a SPeCIAL JURY of MERCHANTS, we COnCeiVe will prove acceptable to our commercial readers. Mr. Campbell, as foreman of the jury, said, he was desired by the other gentlemen of the jury to observe to his Lordship, that they conceived it to be an extreme hardship, that the holder of a bill, for a valuable consi- deration, should be obliged to look after indorsements. Lord Kenyon said, there was one class of bills, where the drawers of these bills contracted that they should be paid to the parties to whom they were given. There was another class of bills, payable to a man or bearer; but when a bill was payable to a man or his order, the law supposed that this bill could not be transferred but by indorsement; and if any man put a forged indorse- ment on the back of a bill, it was a capital offence, for which numbers had been executed. One of the gentlemen of the jury, whose name we have not the pleasure of knowing, said, no man was safe in taking a bill. Lord Kenyon said, it was undoubtedly a little hazard- ous ; at the same time, there was in some cases an advan- tage, as for instance, if a man drew a bill payable to A. or his order, and lost it, if this bill was not indorsed, the finder could have no benefit from it. Another gentleman of the jury said, if he received a bill with six indorsements upon it, it was sufficient for him to prove the last, in order to entitle him to recover. Lord Kenyon said, this was very true, as against the last indorser, or he might come against any of the indor- sers, but that he must prove the first indorsement before he could come upon the drawer. His Lordship observed, that it was of infinitely public concern, that the rule making it necessary to prove the indorsement, should Alford, Miss Worley, Bookseller. Bofton, Mr. Preston, Bookseller.
