Izttiitv Vol. 87. SATURDAY, May 23, 1807- No. 11. Ready Money is expected ) with Advertisements. S 5 Circulated through every Town and populous Village I Bedford, Buckingham, Hertford, Oxford, Warwick; in the Counties of Northampton, Leicester, Huntingdon, } Part of Cambridge, Nottingham, Lincoln, and Rutland. 5 - v. PRICE SIXPENCE, \ Stamp- Duty- • • • • - 3Jd. . ' Paper and Print Sunday and Tuesday's Posts. LONDON, • May 19- SATURDAY'S Gazette contains a formal annun- ciation, that hostilities have taken place between his Majesty and the Sublime Porte; pro- hibits all English ships from clearing out for any Turkish ports; orders a general embargo on ail Turkish ships and vessels; and directs the Com- manders of his Majesty's ships of war and pri- vateers, to detain and bring into port whatever ships and vessels they may meet with bearing the. Turkish flag. The Gazette also contains an official notification, that the Right Hon. G. Canning, his Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, has made known to the Ministers of friendly and neutral Powers, resident at the British Court, that his Majesty has. judged it expedient to direct, that the blockade of the Dardanelles, and of the port and harbour of Smyrna, shall he maintained and enforced in the strictest manner, according to the usages of war in such cases. The Gazette likewise contains aH Order of Council, of tl. e 10th instant, for regulating the trade between this country and Monte Video, in conformity with the trade between Great- Britain and his Majesty's colonies in the West Indies and South America; excepting in such cases where particular duties may have been imposed by the Commander in Chief or Governor for the- time Icing. The importation of Slaves into the settle- ment, is of course strictly prohibited. There is nothing in the accounts received on Saturday from the Continent, by the Husum and Gottenburgh Mails, to confirm the reports of Austria haying become a Mediator between the Belligerent Powers; on the contrary, all the private letters which have reached us are strongly indicative of a disposition on the part of the Em- peror Francis to join the cause of the Allies. He has issued a prohibition against the exportation of any provisions from the Austrian territory ; a cir- cumstance which nsay bo considered as striking almost, at the existence of the French army in Poland. An article from Vienna also states, " that the rumour of an alliance, with a certain Power is at • present roid of all foundation.''— By this Power ( expressed in the singular number) cannot be understood either of the Allies. A speech, delivered by the Archduke Ferdinand, at the opening of the Diet, contains, we under- stand, some very marked reflections upon the pusillanimous couduct of some of the nations which have lately fallen under the power of France; ascribes some of the victories of the French partly to chance; and is, upon the whole, an evident declaration, preparatory to hostilities. Private adviccs also state, that the Austrian Court has refused, a/ ryther passage through Istriti to the French troops intended for Dahnatia, in consequence of very pressing remonstrances from Russia.— It is, however, true that reports ofnego- ciations for peace have been as current in the North as they have neen in Loudon. It was even stated, that the Etnperor of Russia had been at Napoleon's head - quarters, and that the two Monarchs had a conference which lasted two hours. It is fully confirmed that the King of Sweden has refused to ratify the disgraceful armistice made by his General Von Essen. Bonaparte's bulletin- writer, therefore, must now alter the tone of panegyric in which he spoko of that Prince and of his political views. Hostilities have re- com mencvd between France and Sweden, and the French have advanced to Pomerania. Private letters from Konigsbtrg of the 28th, from Piilau of the 30th ult. and from Elsineur of the 5th instant, are received. Those from the latter place announce the receipt there of advices from Dantzic to the 1st instant. These have come to hand by the Husum bags, which have arrived in London. They all agree in stating, that Dantzic had been again bombarded by the French troops, under Lefebvre. The bombardment continued for 11 days, and the place was nt length relieved from the most alarming danger by the arrival ir^ the Tahrwasser of an English armed vessel, that had forced lier wav up with a view of protecting the town, and insuring a supply of succours from the sea. In accomplishing this object, the English ship lost several of her men in killed and wounded. Accounts from St. Petersburgh, of April 5, mention an Ukase, which revives all the restric- tions made by the Empresses Elizabeth and Cathe- rine, upon the freedom of speech. All political conversation is now strictly forbidden in the Rus- sian Empire, and the Senate is charged with making this law as public as possible. It is mentioned in letters by the Danish Mails, that a small corps of British and Russian troops had landed in Cyprus, and were cordially received by tlie inhabitants. A letter from Copenhagen, dated May 5, says, that the Russians hav e advanced within 40 miles of Constantinople; and that three English ships of the line arc lying near Dantzic. All commerce being stopped, from the Euxine by the ,' Jussians, and from the Mediterranean by the English, the want of provisions begins to be severely felt in Constantinople. The death of the Austrian Empress, however melancholy in itself, is represented as politically advantageous. She was reputed the author of the timid policy of her husband, and of the appoint ment of that miserable creature Mack. Every part of the conduct of the Archduke Charles in- dicates a judgment equal to his bravery, and when we can rely on the nomination of Commanders proceeding from him, we shall not fear the issue of any contest. The war has filled the Austrian forces with men of skill and experience, who require only to be called forth by the eye of a discerning master. Previous to Sir Sidney Smith quitting his com- mand in Sicilv for Constantinople, he received the Order of St. Ferdinand from his Sicilian Majesty. Upwards of 14,000 British troops are to be immediately embarked at Deal; among these there are to be 10,000 infantry, 4000 cavalry, and four companies of artillery, besides three troops of drivers, & c. & c. The whole of the expedition, as soon as it has been joined by the Hanoverian Legion, from Ireland and other places, will pro- ceed to its destination, under convoy of a squadron to be commanded by Commodore Keates. The heavy artillery of the German Legion was tmjiarked at Plymouth on Monday: the 13th and tli regiments have sailed through the Downs; thn 10th veteran battalion, the 14th regiment, and part of the 38th and S'Jtb, will embark in the Course of tiiis week. The report of the dispatches from Admiral I. ouis, which were on board the Crafty schooner, having fallen into the hands of the enemy, we are happy to say is unfounded. They were destroyed before the vessel was captured. The new Parliament will meet on the 22d of next month, for the dispatch of public business. Lord H. Petty and A. Adair, Esq. were returned Members to serve in the New Parliament, on Sa- turday last, for Camelford, Cornwall. On Friday night her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales attended the Opera, after an absence of sonic years. She entered during the first Act, accompanied by his Royal Highness the Duke of Cumberland, and was received, from every part of the house, with enthusiastic applause. It has been determined ( and perhaps properly) that none of the proceedings upon the late delicate investigation into the alledged charges against the Princess of Wales, and the result of which com- pletely establishes her innocence, shall be published. In that voluminous mass, we understand there are many points so frivolous and indecent that they ought not to be obtruded upon the public. It is suffi- cient for the public to know that the Sovereign, all the Royal Family, and especially the Prince of Wales, are completely satisfied that the charges were false, unfounded, and calumnious. The Duke of Portland is appointed Master of the Trinity- house in the room of Lord Spencer. The following circumstance has lately oc » ttrred at Cork:— An American ship put into Cove last Saturday week, direct from Bourdeaux. A boat from the Virginia frigate boarded her, and the crew were examined. In the course of the exa- mination, three foreigners of creditable appear- ance were discovered, who, upon examination, were ascertained to be Frenchmen, and imme- diately from France. Passes were found in their possession, recently furnished by the French Go- vernment. As no satisfactory information was obtained relative to their destination and views, they weni sent on board the Amsterdam store- ship, and a Messenger was dispatched to Government, acquainting them with the circumstance. On Thursday afternoon, between two and three o'clock, as one of the Clerks belonging to an emi- nent Banking- house was returning home, he was attacked in Lombard- street by three desperadoes, who cut his pocket- hook out of his pocket, con- taining, it is said, Bank of England notes, to the amount of nearly ten thousand pounds, with which they got cfoir off. As Mr. Dallas, a rjopcctable farmer's son, at Garfdesdon, in Hertfordshire, was corning to'town a few nights since, he was crossed twice by a young man well mounted, who at last, much agitated, i presented a long pistol, or something like one, at Mr. D. and demanded, with a fatiltering voice, his money or his life; but as Mr. Dallas did not feel i inclined to surrender either, he gave the highway- man's horse a blow on the head with his whip, which made the animal instantly turn, and Mr. I), taking the opportunity, galloped off at full speed, leaving the highwayman to ruminate on his disap- pointment. On Saturday se'nnight a fatal accident happened at the Dock- yard, Chatham, at the lower part of which some men > vere at work, placing and se- curing booms, for the purpose of preventing timber from floating an ay ; when one of them slipped off a mast and fell into the river. Ano- ther came instantly to his assistance, and while endeavouring to extricate his companion, lie also fell in; a third then came to assist the other two, and he was likewise precipitated into the river.. The last, however, happened to be able to swim, and he made to the shore; the other two. were sucked under by the masts, where they remained, the otic ten and the other fifteen minutes; when first taken out, they both had some slight appear ance of animation, and the ono who - had been under the water the shortest time, after consider- able exertions and attention, was recovered; but the other, named William Henry Seeth, was too far gone to be restored by the means possessed by the attendants of the Dock- yard Surgery, being unfortunately not provided with the apparatus generally used for restoring suspended animation. On Saturday the Sessi » ns finished at the Old- Bailey, when Mary Barker and John Brown re- ceived sentence of death for stealing in dwelling- houses; J. Dignam, found guilty of manslaughter, fined Is. and sentenced to la months imprisonment in Newgate. A number were ordered for trans- portation, and others to various punishments ac- cording to their offences. R ESPF. F & CAMBRIDGE COMMENCEMENT, 1807. GRAND MUSICAL FESTIVAL.

' ( One Concern.) To the GENTLEMEN, CLCC. OY, and FREEHOLDERS of the COUNTY of HUNTINGDON. R. PROBY JERXY begs Leave to return his Thanks to the Freeholders of the County of Huntingdon, for the Civilities he received in the Course of his Canvass on Behalf of LORD PROSY. TO tfluse who did his Lordship the Honour of voting for his Re- election, he offers the most grateful Acknowledgments of the whole Family. One of Lord Carysfort's Sons, in the Flower of his Age, has perished in the Service of his Country ; those who remain have devoted themselves for the same Cause: To the Freeholders of the County which has so long been the Seat of their Ancestors, they bear hereditary Affection. When they reflect upon the large Number of most respectable and independent Men who ap- peared in Support of Lord Proby, tlicy cannct feel that they lisve suffered a disgraceful Repulse; auH actively employed in the public Defence, and conscious of their Zeal and Integrity, they will no doubt look forward without Discouragement to the Time, when one of them^ may again make a Tender of his Ser- vices in Parliament, and solicit the Suffrages of his Countrymen. Huntingdon, May 16/ 4, 1807. To the Gr. NTI. FMIN, CI. ERGY, and FREEHOI. HERS of the COUNTY of HUNTINGDON. GENTLEMEN. esenting trust I may, without impropriety, in the Absence of my Son, who is abroad on His Majesty's Service, convey to you the Expression of those Scntimefits by which he, and all his Family, are actuated towards you, and towards our common Country. This, indeed, is necessary, as it is evident that Lord Proby was deprived, upon a late Occasion, of the Suffrages of many respectable Freeholders, by the Clamour raised against the Friends of the late A'dmi- nistraticn, as Enemies of the Protestant Religion, and of the English Constitution. The Measures which were made the Pretence of this Clamour, were in no Degree connected with the Security of the Church of England, nor had they the smallest Tendency to change the Constitution of the State; they were Questions merely of political Expe- dience, such as must be always open to Discussion and Modification, because the Circumstances on which they are grounded must continually vary. It is indeed extraordinary, that this Clamour should have been raised by the Advocates of the present Ministers- - of those who were themselves the Contrivers and Sup- porters of all the Acts which have been passed, during His Majesty's Reign, for changing the Laws respecting Roman Catholics in Ireland, and especially of the Measure proposed by Lord Howick; in which the late Ministers undertook to redeem a Pledge given by their Predecessors. But Lord Proby is in no Degree implicated in that Matter— he never was a Ministerof the Irish Parliament; and as to the Catholic Question, neither he nor his Father are pledged, or have declared an Opinion, upon the Whole or any Part of that ex- tensive Subject. As to their general political Principles, the Proby Family will continue, as they have ever been, Friends to Toleration, Friends to Liberty, loyal to His Ma- jesty, and faithful to the religious and civil Con- stitution of the State: The Constitution is Liberty, and the Sovereign of the British Empire is the greatest Prince in the World, because his People are free. The Principles of Administration we profess to sup- port, are, Economy, Freedom of Opinion and Dis- cussion, Indulgence, Conciliation. The first is necessary to the Security as well as the Ease of the Community; the Rest are the Means by which States- men govern Freemen, to the End that they may lead them to Happiness and Glory. These are the Principles which we approve, and are proud to avow; and conscious that they are the genuine Principles of the Reformation an J the Revolution; the Principles of the Act of Settlement; the Prin- ciples upon which His Majesty ami his illustrious House have, through so long a Course of Renown and Prosperity, governed the British Nations, . we shall continue to solicit your Favour, and to claim your Esteem. 1 am, Gentlemen, With the greatest Respect, Your faithful, and obedient Servant, CARYSFORT.

THE Gazette of this evening contains an ac- count of the capture, off Cape Ortega!, of L'Alerte French privateer, of 14 guns and 85 men, by the Pallas frigate, Captain Miller; also, of the capture, on the Leeward island station, of a fine brig privateer, L'Austerlitz, of 18 guns and 125 men, after a chace of 18 hours, by the Circe frigate, Captain Pigot. This vessel has done more mischief to the trade than any other from Gua- daloupe during the war, and has been chased by several of our frigates before, but from her supe- rior sailing always escaped. Dutch and French Papers to a late date have been received, with two Gottenburgh Mails, and the Husum Mail due on Sunday. The intelligence by all these conveyances is of but little importance. All is . vet quiet " with the armies. But the siege of Dantzic has produced some warm operations. It seems to be most vigorously defended against a furious attack. The precipitation of Bonaparte has induced him to make some desperate attempts to carry the place by assault, in which his troops, however, were repulsed, with the loss, it is said, of 6000 men. TU « reduction of it, we trust, will cost Bonaparte both time and troops. If the siege can be protracted till the country will bear the movement of troops and artillery, the endeavours of the Russians to relieve the fortress will probably bring on the first general engagement. The idea that a diversion may be operated in Favour of the Allies, in which it is expected that the British will co- operate, lias . effected the resn- lution of collecting a French army of observation on the Elbe, which is to be commanded by Marshal Brune. It is reported that the King of Prussia is to send 13,000 men under the command of Blucher, to the assistance of the King of Sweden. If this be true, it must be understood that the Russians in Poland are a match by themselves for the force of Bonaparte. Bonaparte seriously purposes to remedy the fault he has committed in the eyes of military men, by advancing so far into Poland, while Stralsund, Colberg, and Dantzic remain in the power of an • enemy who has also the command of the sea. Every thing shews that he is resolved to act for a time on the defensive. He has taken a strong position in Prussia, by means of which he hopes to repel the attacks of the great Russian army, which lies before him; and he in the mean while orders the siege of the maritime fortresses in the Baltic. Hence the waste of blood before Dantzic. The Altona Mercury relates, in a second edition, that on the 29th ult. at night, the Trench made three attempts to take Dantzic by storm, but in vain ; after which an armistice of four hours was granted for burying the dead. It is said, that ships which passed by on the 5th instant, heard a violent cannonade from the city. This last intelli- gence discredits a report which two days since had gained great ground, that the siege was raised. It was added, that the Saxons had deserted to a man ; that an attack was made by accord at the same instant, from the garrison in the city, and the English frigates before it, upon the French works; and that, after an obstinate contest, the enemy was forced to yield his positions, heavy artillery, & c. The desertion of the Saxons is said to have been acknowledged by the French Minister Bourienne. According to the Konigsberg Paper of the 25th ult. the arrival of the Emperor and the Grand Duke ConstaDtine has caused great joy in the army. On the 9th of April, Gelteral Blucher and his two suns arrived at Rosenberg'.' near ' Finkenstein. On the 22d, an orderly officer waited upon him with ail invitation to proceed to Finkenstein ; he rode, aceoBipanicd by his eldest son and an Adjutant, and was admitted to an audience of the Emperor Napoleon, by whom he was rrrv gnscrmialy re- ceived. On the 23d, he proceeded, with his sons and his Adjutant, to the head- quarters, of his Prus- sian Majesty, at Bartenstein. The King of Sweden, if is said, has renewed his treaties with the King of Prussia; all animosity between these two Sovereigns is forgotten; and 6000 Prussians are on their passage to Stralsund, under Generals Blucher and Tauenzien, while the diplomatic relations betweetf the two Courts are restored. Sweden having persevered in its hostility, the French, it is said, are about to collect a large force on the northern frontier of Germany. On Sunday last, Marshal Bruue received, by a Courier from Finkenstein, the command of all the forces in Lower Saxony, which, united with the troops coming from Italy, are to form an army of obser- vation against the Swedos and English, and at the same time cover the operations of the Grand Army. The English prisoners at Verdun are said to be treated with unusual lenity. Their limits have been enlarged, and they are permitted to be absent for three, or even four days, without a personal appearance at the Town- house. A curious reason is assigned for this mitigation. Some of the naval and military officers are said to have adopted the singular expedient of soliciting the intercession of the Archduke Charles of Austria; and to have addressed a memorial to biro, as to the bravest soldier in Europe, the acknowledged Head of the European Military. This memorial is said to have had its expected success, A very large importation of foreign oak hark is shortly expected from Norway. The practice of stripping it from the trees at the spring of the year, instead of Midsummer ( which used to bo the practice on the Continent), is this season universally adopted there; the quality of the bark will there- fore be equal to English oak bark. The woollen manufactory of the West- Riding of Yorkshire, from the 25th of March, 1806, to the 25th of March, 1807, produced 6,430,101 yards of narrow- milled, and 9,561,178 of broad- milled; total 15,291,279 yards: decreased this year 281,294 yards. This decrease is attributed to the unsettled situation of our political relations with America; and the ascendancy that the battles of Austerlitz and Jena have given tlio French over the Continent. Sons of the Clergy.—' Thursday the anniversary of the Sons of the Clergy was celebrated at St. Paul's Cathedral. The collection at the Cathedral and dinner amounted to £. 596. A fire which destroyed Detroit, in America, the 1st of June, 1805, consumed the houses in 25 streets, lanes, and alleys. • Sixteen human beings were burnt* and cows, horses, and sheep shared the same fate. The wretched inhabitants escaped ' with only the linen on their backs. A tribe of the Delaware Indians, who lived within five miles of Detroit, held a council the next day, and came to a resolution to relieve the sufferers; and the third day after the fire, sent 18 milch cows, 25 sheep, with turkies, chickens, and other necessaries, to their relief. Major Campbell, the Commandant of Fort Maiden, on the British ii- Jfi of the river, also contributed to their relief, and sent them five boat- loads of - clothes, shoes, and other useful articles. The probable expences of Lard Milton and Mr. Lasc'elles, in the present contest for the county of York, are estimated at ^ f. 150,000 each, and of Mr. Wilberforce, at ,£. 100,000, making together the sum of ,£. 400,000. A subscription has been opened for Mr. Wiber- force, 36,000 were subscribed in one day in the City of York. Sir F. Burdett knew nothing of the proceedings of the Westminster Election, respecting himself, until Friday last. The custom of pouring brandy into shoes or boots, with the view of preventing the effects of cold, was the occasion of the death of Mr. Alder- man Hankey. Feeling his feet damp and cold, he was induccd, at the recommendation of some friends at the Hall where he had been dining, to pour a glass of brandy into his shoes, in which state he walked home afterwards. He was almost immediately seized with an inflammation and con-; sequent obstruction in the bowels, which, in a few hours, terniiaated fatally. This practice is adopted upon the supposition, that because spirits, when swallowed, excite universal warmth, and restore the circulation in the extremities, they must do the same when applied to the extremities themselves. But the very reverse happens. Fluids, when eva- porating, produce cold; and the lighter or more spirituous the fluid, the more quickly it evaporates and greater is the degree of cold generated. This may be proved by a very simple experiment. If one hand be wetted with spirit, and the other with water, and both are held up to dry in the air, the hand welted with spirits will feel infinitely colder than the other. Or if the. bulbs of two thermometers be so treated, the mercury will be observed to fall much more rapidly and extensively in the one case than in the other. Whatever dan- ger, therefore, arises from the cold and damp feet, it is greatly enhanced by the practice alluded to. If such a remedy is to be at all employed, it ought to be taken into the stomach. The Turkish Stone Shot.— Those monstrous engines of destruction, which have been described by Admiral Duckworth and his Offioers, are fined out of guns of enormous size, which are not placed on any carriages, but rest on banks of earth or stone very near the water's edge. They nre wholly immoveable; the stones are raised up to their muzzles by means of levers; and it takes half an hour to charge one of them. They therefore can fire but once at the same object, they must catch the ship at the moment she passes within the line of their aim. Had these guns been pointed lower when the British ships they lately fired at were passing, the balls must have penetrated the hulls between wind and water, and sunk them. Had a few British soldiers been sent on shore previous to the passage of the Streights, to spiko these de- structive engines and demolish the batteries, all the mischief they occasioned to our ships, and our national glory, would have been prevented. The book lost by the clerk of Herries & Co. on Friday last, was found in Lombard- street by a journeyman carpenter, who took it, with its valu- able contents, to the banking- house ill St. James's street, the same afternoon. The firm rewarded his honesty by handsomely presenting him with £. 500. Last week a mo3t extraordinary circumstance happened in Plymouth. A most beautiful cock pheasant, from fatigue, it is supposed, dropped down in the Sound, along- side the Santa Marga- rita, of 36 guns, lying there. This handsome bird, by a boat being put off from the frigate, was picked up alive, and is now at the pheasantry in the delightful woods of Strode, Esq. ofNewnliain Park, near Plympton. Lambert's Leap.— Saturday as a servant boy was riding a spirited horse from Newcastle towards Sandyford, the animal ran away with him, and at the dangerous turn at Sandyford bridge, dashed full speed against the battlement, the coping stones of which were loosened by the shock, and the the INDEPENDENT ERF. EHOLDEJIS BEDFORDSHIRE. of had a'arge family of children, and knew so much To of the blessings of connubial happiness, as to satisfy him of the extent of the crime he so wan- j OIR GEORGE OSBORN purposing to establish tonly committed. It, so happened, that the lady > kj> a Constitutional Independent Club, to unite the was in a delicate state of health, and her phy- FREEHOLDERS both of TOWN and COUNTY sicians were consulted on her case. The gentle- men of the profession advised, that she should take the benefit of sea- bathing; and Aberystwith, on the coast of Cardigan, being at a convenient distance, her husband consented to a temporary separation. Tbe lady took her departure, and her husband, impelled by that affection with which he was always influenced, followed her in a few days. He arrived one night before he was expected: he found his wife absent; she had left her lodgings in an open carriage with Colonel Bedingfield; and on this discovery, he remained in a state of distraction more easily imagined than described. After having stated the particulars of the case, Mr. Garrow proceeded to examine the several witnesses. Mrs. Collev, the innkeeper at the picturesque situation popularly called the Devil's Bridge, said, that Mrs. Railston and Colonel Bedingfield came to her house on the 9th of October; that they returned again on the 19th of November, and continued there until the 24th of the same month; that they returned again in January; and during all the time they were there, they lived together us man and wife. Dr. Morrison said he was a physician, at Wol- j verhamptoH, and knew both the plaintiff and his | wife, before and since their marriage. He had only visited the family professionally; but, from ! what he could observe, the plaintiff always con- • ducted himself as a most affectionate and iadul- | gent husband. Miss Brown said, she was the sister of Mrs. Hailstone, and the daughter of Mr. Brown, of Tothill, near Wolverhampton." Mrs. Railston being indisposed, the witness accompanied her to Aberystwith. She there became acquainted with the defendant. The plaintiff came to the place one evening, unexpectedly, at ten o'clock. His wife had gone out the same afternoon, in an open carriage, with the defendant: it was wet weather. Upon her not returning, the plaintiff was in very great distress; and about twelve o'clock at night he procured a conveyance, and left Aberystwith in search of her.— Oil her cross- examination by the Attorney- General, she said, that neither she nor her sister were acquainted with the defendant before they saw him on the 25th of September. The plaintiff came to the place on the 3d of October. On the 25th of the preceding month, the defendant introduced himself to them on the public walk; on the 26th, they walked with him and Mr. Edwards, his friend; and on the 27th, the same party took a walk into the adjacent country. On that occasion the defendant and her sister separated themselves from Mr. Edwards and the witness for nearly an hour, and it was towards ten o'clock before they returned home. Joseph Lane, Esq. had known the plaintiff for 17 years. He had the best opportunity of ob- serving the conduct of the plaintiff and his wife, both before and after their marriage. No mau could make a more indulgent husband than Mr. Railston, and the lady appeared to be a most domestic and affectionate wife, with a tincture of religion stronger than the generality of the sex. The Attorney- General, for the defendant, said, that he had no difficulty in concurring in the general observations made by his Learned Friend in the opening of this case; but unfortunately for the object of this action, many of them did not apply to it. There were many cases in which a defendant would not be called upon to answer in considerable damages, although an improper connection had taken place. The defendant in this case was not acquainted with the husband of the lady, or the lady herself, more than three days before he obtained the accomplishment of his wishes. He introduced himself on the 25th of . September, and was accepted without the ordi- nary ceremony prudence and delicacy have en- joined. With these observations, the Learned Counsel would leave the case to the determination of the Jury, sensible that they would deal with it as justice required. Lord Ellenborough, having explained the nature of the action, said, that the question was, not as to the commission of the crime, but as to the extent of the damages to be assigned to the plain- tiff. There was every proof supplied of the ten- derness and affection of the husband, up to the moment of the departure of the lady for Aberyst- with. The Jury having retired for about an hour, returned with a verdict for the plaintiff— Damages £\ 1000. who have made so noble a Struggle in Defence of the Liberties of this County, wishes the Club to meet this Year at the SESSION s.

The Kingston papers contain a kind of public notice, that it is the intention of the British Legislature to indem- nify any individuals who may be injured by the Abolition, and that the Jamaica Slave Factors may be comprehended, by petition, in this com- pensation. i'riday were received from New South- Wales, the Sidney Gazettes to the 9th of November in- clusive. The scarcity of grain was at that period so grout, that wheat had been selling for several days at £. 4 per bushel, arid the price of the 2lb. loaf had risen to 4s. Sd. Fowls sold at from 8s. to 10s. per couple, and eggs at 3s. per dozen. At the market on the 8th, no wheat was to be bad, and very lilt, Is maize. Potatoes were eagerly bought nt from 4d. to 5d. per pound ; and the sup- ply of vegetables was very scanty. To add to the distress of the colony, several fields of young corn had been destroyed by the grub. Con- siderable relief was, however, expected from the approaching harvest. Captain Baker, of the Tribune frigate, has tWtroyed a convoy of Spanish gun- boats and quasters, in a vefy spirited action; but, unfor- tunately, in the contest, he lost. 16 men killed, wounded, and missing. Captain Baker had a verv narrow escape; a ball struck the flint out of a n. usket which he was about to fire. His cockswain was one of those wounded. Admiral Duckworth, after taking measures to cut off tlm supplies of provisions from Egypt to I " rkejr, directed his coarsc northward, to prevent ! • the i'otilori and Barcelona floets from coming out. escaped without any broken bones, and was en- abled to remount the horse and ride off. A woman of Falmouth, known there by the name of Tammy Dunstan, lately in an altercation with another who charged her with calumniating her, was in the act of denying the charge with the most solemn asseveration, when she dropt down and instantly expired. Fordham, Harvey, Harford, and Ridge, the men who w ere a short time ago convicted of a burglary at Ponder's- Eiid ; and Freeman and Fisher, con- victed of forgery ; were yesterday morning, pur- suant to their sentence, executed at the Old Bailey. They all behaved with becoming fortitude. The two former strongly protested their innocence; the remainder acknowledged the justice of their sentence. COURT of KING'S BENCH, Wednesday, May 20. RAILSTOI^ V. BEDINGFIELD, Esq. The plaintiff is a merchant at Wolverhampton, the defendant an Officer in the Army, of the rank of Colonel. Mr. Garrow, for the plaintiff, said, that this was a case which called for the most serious at- tention, as the offence committed wasiof the most flagrant nature, being nothing less than the se- duction of a chaste, moral, and discreet woman; withdrawing her affections from a most indulgent husband ; and carrying the most nefarious project for the destruction of domestic peace and happi- ness to ultimate success. It was no inconsiderable aggravation of this offence, and ho was sorry to | shuck the sensibility of the Jury by such a state- ment, that this delinquent was a married man, MORETON- PINKNEY.

ACCOUNTS have been received from Sil- T. Duckworth's fleet, by a vessel which has • arrived at Liverpool, from one of- the Seven Islands, ' Ihe intelligence, though not of a very pleasing kind, is what might have been expected. In obe- dience to the circular Firman of the Grand Signior, illl the Barbary Powers have declared against us, and the Mediterranean is covered with their cor- sairs. The Bey of Tunis and the Dey of Algiers are foremost 111 this general hostility. The mis- chief of this vexatious warfare is more than pro- portionate to the actual strength of the Powers concerned. The corsairs are invariably small vessels, some of them sloops, aud more of them a kind of armed wherries. It is almost impossible, therefore, to bring any force to bear against them. The merchants of the Levant Trade, will suffer ' much from their piracy. It is true, indeed, that the events of late years have reduced this once flourishing commerce within very narrow limits; but something of it still exists, and its produce consists in articles of the first necessity. The extinction of the Levant Trade, therefore, must rot be considered as wholly without importance. When the above accounts left tiic Mediter- ranean, Lord Collingwood's fleet was reported all well. Mr. Arbuthnot was momentarily expected in the Amphion; and Sir Thomas Duckworth was said to have reached Messina on his way home. It was added that Sir Sidney Smith was ordered to remain at the mouth of the Dardanelles. Letters from Rotterdam, dated on Monday last, were yesterday received. Intelligence from Dant- sic, of the 5th instant, had reached Holland. At that time the siege had not been raised, but there was an evident relaxation in the operations of the enemy. This was attributed to the vigour with which the reiterated attempts of the French to carry the town by storm, 011 the night of the 29th of April, were repulsed. The garrison made sorties almost every day, most of which are repre- sented as having been completely successful.— These letters state it to be the general opinion in Holland, that the Court of Vienna was on the eve of declaring against France. It was even rpported, on the loth instant, that such a declaration had actually been made. We do not believe- that Austria has vet gone so far. The intended inter- view between the two Emperors will, however, produce something decisive; it will either termi- nate in confirming Austria in her system of neu- trality, or making Iter a party in the war. The Rotterdam Courant, of the 16th instant, contains a speculative article of great length upon the advantages which Sweden may derive from an alliance with France. It is contended, that " Sweden will ever be a dependant nation, in the exact proportion in which she struggles for inde- pendence ; that she has only therefore to take her choice between France and Russia— between the protection of the former, and subjection to the latter; that France has every interest to protect Sweden, and none to enslave her; that the im- mense empire of France requires not the addition of Sweden as a member of her dominion: But is it so with Russia? Sweden is here a weak Power, which borders upon a strong Power: Sweden is to Russia what Portugal is to Spain, and Scotland to England. Nature seems to have intended them as members of the same body; and ambition will sooner or later work upon these physical advan- tages." We are happy to state, that our commercial relations with Russia, which were likely to have been interrupted, owing to sotne mismanagement, are in a fair way of being placed on a solid and per- manent footing. Matters were lately so circum- stanced, that a passport could not be obtained for an Englishman without its being sent from St. I'etersburgh, which was attended with much trouble. We now have good authority to announce, that his Excellency the Russian Ambassador is authorized by his Court, to grant passports to all British subjects who may be desirous of entering the Russian territories, provided such persons he 1 properly recommended to his Excellency by his Majesty's Government. The Earl of Pembroke, now gone to Vienna, we understand, is invested with full powers to treat for peace with France, conjointly with our Allies, as circumstanccs may arise. Ilis powers, we are further assured, are verbatim, the same as those with which the Earl of Lauderdale was in- fested on his mission to Paris. The war in Poland having nearly exhausted the stenk of provisions, we understand that Govern- ment is about to send up the Baltic, for the use of our allies, a large quantity of different articles of domestic consumption. The embarkation of troops for the grand expe- dition has commenced with the Royal artillery, of whom a large division has just been shipped on board the vessels provided for their reception. The embarkation of the foreign corps will imme- diately follow at Ramsgate, Margate, and Deal. Lord Keith has been ordered to strike his flag, the Admiralty having resolved to divide the com- mand into three separate commands. In consequence of information having been laid against some of the Underwriter* of Lloyd's Coffee- j house, for using slips of unstamped paper instead of Policies, a meeting of the Merchants, Under- writers, and Brokers, took place on Wednesday, at the Coffee- house, at which it was resolved to appoint a Committee to confer with the Commis- sioners of Stamps on the subject. Yesterday a new Lottery was contracted for, to consist of S0,000 Tickets only, and to begin Drawing in July next. The following were the bidders:— Bish & Eranscomb, Richardson & Swift, Hensley & Pulley, and T. Cope £.

The French Official Paper of the 12th contains a journal of the siege of Dantzic, from the 22d 10 the 30th of April. The enemy confess that the place was defended with uncommon activity and resolution. The cannonade was kept up 011 both sides with groat vigour. On the 25th, in the afternoon, Marshal Lefebvre ordered the firing to cease, and sent his Aid- du- Camp to summon the place; but General Kal- kreuth replied, " that he should not listen to anv proposal of that kind, until a practicable breach had been made." On the following night the bombardment was kept up with great spirit, and several buildings in the town were set on fire. When it had slackened for some time, the garrison attempted a sortie, but were repulsed with con- siderable loss. On the night of the 28th, the be- sieged made another sally, which is said to have been conducted with much skill, and executed with great courage, but the French corps of re- serve at length succeeded in repulsing them. Government, it is said, have received confirma- tion of the account of the defeat of the French, in their attempt to storm Dantzic, with the loss of 6000 men. Mr. Kraws, one of the King's Messengers, has arrived- in the Dorset packet from Mr. straLtou, his Majesty's charge d'affaires at the Court of Sweden. It is reported he brings intelligence of the armistice between the French and Swedes having been at length ratified, or at least farther extended. The Person who ro de away with the same, was a jolly well- looking Man, with a mettled under Coat, and a dark greatCoat; he had also a rough great Coat tied on the Saddle with a Halter.— The above Horse was led by the Hand, and the Person rode a black i Pony, with a Hog Matte, a Star in the Face, and a | j.

Ampthill, April Ttth, 1807. w vhich the Among the popular superstitions almost I'eneral illumination of modern times has not been able to obliterate, the dread of the " Death- Watch may well be considered as one of the most predominant, and still continues to dis- turb the habitations of rural tranquillity with groundless tears and absurd apprehensions. It is not indeed to be imagined that they who are engaged in the more important cares ot pro- viding the immediate necessaries of lite, should have " either leisure or inclination to investigate, with philosophic exactness, the causes of a par- ticular sound; yet it must be allowed to be a very singular circumstance, that an insect so common should not be more universally known, and the peculiar noise which it occasionally makes be more universally understood. . It is chiefly in the advanced state of spring that this alarming little insect commences its sound, which is no other than1 the call or signal hy which the male and female are led to each other, and which may be considered as analogous to the call of birds; though not owing to the voice of the insect, but to its beating on any hard substance with the shield or t'ore- part of its head. The pre- vailing number of distinct strokes which it beats is from seven to nine or eleven; which very cir- cumstance may perhaps still add, in some degree, to the ominous character which it bears among the vulgar. These sounds or beats are given m pretty quick succession, and are repeated at un- certain intervals; and in old houses where the insects are numerous, may be heard at almost every hour of the day; especially if the weather be warm. The sound exactly resembles that which may be made by beating moderately hard with a nail on a table. The insect is of a colour so nearly resembling that of decayed wood, viz. an obscure greyish brown, that it may for a considerable time elude the search of the enquirer. It is about a quarter of an inch in length, and is moderately thick in proportion, and the wing- shells are marked with numerous irregular variegations, of a lighter or greyer cast than the groundcolour. Ridiculous and even incredible as it may appear, it is an animal that may in some measure be tamed; at least it may be so far familiarized as to be made to beat occasionally, by taking it out of its con- finement, and beating oil a table or board, when it will readily answer the noise, and will continue to beat as often as required. Wo must be careful not to confound this insect which is the real Death- Watch of the vulgar, em- phatically so called, with a much smaller insect of a very different genus, which makes a sound like the ticking of a watch, and continues it for a long time without intermission. This latter be- longs to a totally rliiferent order, and is thcTcrmes pulsatorium of Linimie. NORTHAMPTON, May 14th, 1007. " f .' T R..

Tupp & Ferry, Oxford. Street; afterwards Crok at Melun's Hotel, Bath; and now tf Martelli's, Albany, London. The Lateness of the Season in which the fourteenth Edition of this Work is brought forward, requires the strongest Apology from the Proprietors to those nu- merous Subscribers who have so patiently waited its Completion; and they beg to assure them and the Public in general, that it arose from the very rapid Sale of the last Edition, which was sold completely off several Months sooner than was expected, together with the great Difficulty of getting any Book oVinted in haste, from the extreme Pressure of that Business at this Time ; but they hope, the many Improvements made in the Culinary Art will sufficiently recompence the Delay, and place the fourteenth Edition of the Housekeeper's Instructor in the first Degree of Esti- mation in the Kitchen Library of every Nobleman, Gentleman, and good Housewife.

Ulceration in her Hand, giving her much Pain ; it then broke out in her Wrist, both her Shoulders, and her Knee, each Ulceration discharging much, and not disposed to heal; it then affected her right Elbow ; and these Ulcerations, with a Disposition to general Debility, she suffered for twelve Years. Her Knee was healed in the Worcester Infirmary; and she experienced some Benefit while a Patient, for a short Period, ill St. Bartholomew's Flospital; when she made Application for the Benefit of SPILSBURY'S PATENT ANTISCORBUTIC DROPS, at the Dispensary, No. 15, Soho- Square, London. By the Application of the Drops for six Months, her Ulcers gradually healed, and she regained her Strength and Appetite"; it is now a Twelvemonth since, and she remains per- fectly well.— Any Information of the above Fact may be obtained at No. 9, Duke's- Court, Drurv- Lane.

FROM the Prevalence of Diseases of the Skin in Children from Inoculation, and other Causes, and the Difficulty of eradicating them, it has been long wished that an Alternative could be devised that should comprise real Benefit in a small Compass, and at once be innocent, cheap, pleasant, and effectual. A Practitioner, of great Experience, contrived, many Years since, a Medicine of this Description, for his young Patients, and gave it a Form peculiarly adapted to the Palate and Stomach of Children. The Success of it fully answered his Expectation in all Eruptions upon the Skin, whether arising from original Impurity of the Blood, or acquired by the Vaccine or Variolous Inoculation, natural Small- Pox, Measles, or any other Cause; and it is now with Confidence recommended to the Attention of the Public.

Notions Original Maredant's Drops. rI,< UE following remarkable Cure, effected by - L these Drops, is submitted to the Consideration of the Afflicted, as a further Proof of the Efficacy of this Medicine when procured genuine:— " To tile PROPRIETOR of NORTON'S MAREDANT'S DROPS. " liar lesion, near Northampton, May 28, 1806. " It would be ungrateful in me not to acknowledge the great Cure my little Girl, aged five Years, has received from your valuable Medicine. More than a Year since she was seized with a violent Pain in her right I • eg ; after some Time an Abscess formed in the Ancle, which was attended with such a violent Pain that she could get no Rest Night or Day; her Appetite was quite gone, and she was reduced to a mere' Ske- leton : Being advised to get her to be an Out- Patient at the Infirmary, she was attended by two Professional Gentlemen, who told me the only Chance to save her Life was to take her Leg off. In this trying Situation I made my Case known to Robert Andrew, Esq. of Harleston- Park, who bought me a Bottle of NORTON'S MARF. DANT'S DROP'S, which he advised me to make Trial of. After the Child had taken this Bottle I found her Appetite mush better, and she began to gain Strength. He then sent me another Bottle; in taking wMch, two Pieces Of Bo,,^ came from the Ancle, and, before she had finished the Bonie. the Discharge increased, and the Wound looked much better. Encouraged by the Success, he sent me two Bottles more, and before she had finished the fourth Bottle the Wound was closed, the Child gained Strength daily, and is jiow ( thank God) quite well and in good Health, and can go without the Help of Crutches, which she had used some Time before " MARY WRIGHT."' Witness to the Truth of the above, ROBERT ANDREW, one of His Majesty's Justices ot the Peace for the County of Northampton. The Medicine which effected the above Cure was purchased of Messrs. Dicey & Co. Northampton. The genuine Maredant's Drops are sold in Bottles of 5s. od. 01' 10s. each, Duty included, by S. RANDAL, Successor to Mr. Tutt, Roval- Exchange, London; also bv Messrs.

Life insurance is of material Concern to all who hold Estates or Income dependent on Lives ; as by Payment of an Annual Premium, it enables the Person assured - to make Provision for his Widow, Children, or whoever he is desirous of assisting ; to Persons in Possession of good Estates, it vvill provide a Sum of Ready Money, for thePurpose of discharging Incumbrances, immediately on the Decease of the Person whose Life is insured; and will be found to operate very beneficially, in a Variety of Transactions, too numerous to recite.

EDGE, NORTHAMPTON, :\ S receiycd a fresh Supply of Dr. Freeman's GUTTA SALUTAR1S, for a certain Disorder, under its various Appearances, and complicated At- tacks, which may be speedily and secretly eradicated from the System by the Use of Dr. FREEMAN'S DROPS; which, for their salutary Effects in cleansing the Blood from all Impurities, whether from a certain Disorder or Scorbutic, are termed GUTTA SALUTARIS. By persevering in the Use of this Remedy, the Patient gtadually loses all Pain and Inflammation, all foul and corroding Ulcets, Lumps in the Skin, and other corresponding Symptoms of this cruel and relentless Disease. Nearly thirty Y'ears' Practice hath proved to Dr. Freeman that all this is accomplished bv the Drops, without the Aid of Surgical Operation's, or the usual Application ofgreasy mercurial Preparations.

Dr. SOLOMON'S ABSTERGENT LOTION. IT is unnecessary to enumerate the Advantages - resulting to the " Constitution of every Peison, by effectually removing Obstructions from' the Surface of the Skin, and thereby keeping free and open the innumerable Passages ' and Pores through which Nature expels all useless or noxious Humours from the vital Fluid, and which being obstructed, are forced back again into, the Blood, and become the Sources of many dangerous Diseases. It is therefore a Matter of much Consequence, as well to prevent hurtful Disorders, as for the Preservation of Ease, Comfort, and Beauty, to Persons ( however slightly affected), that they should occasionally have Recourse to the Abstergent Lotion; but more especially it becomes urgently re- quisite when the Effects of Obstruction make " their Appearance, and break olit into Pimples, Redness, Carbuncles, or other cutaneous Eruptions. The Ab- stergent Lotion never fails of Succe> s with those who GIVE IT A FAIR TRIAL; and as its Price evidently shews that no private Emo- lument is sought for by the Proprietor, so also may the Public be convinced, that Nothing but a Certainty of Success could induce Dr. Solomon to hazard the good Opinion he is honoured with by all Ranks, in presenting them with this Cosmetic, were it not a safe and certain Remedy for herpeitic Complaints in general. gy l'rice 4s. 6d. a Bottle, Duty included.— A Government Stamp is pasted on each Bottle, with the Name and Place of Abode of the Proprietor, thus, " Sarnl.
