V 3JM. I Paper and Print • - 2Aik Sunday and Tuesday's Posts. LONDON, July 21. TIIF. Gazette of Saturday ( for which see our last page) contains the official account of the second disastrous affair in Egypt; according to which, our reverses appear, in a great mea- sure, to have arisen from the disappointed ex- pectation of-, being joined by the Mameluke Beys. Whether our proposals were not thought suffi- ciently advantageous to them, we know not; but it appears they have made peace with the Viceroy of Egypt. The Gazette also contains an account of the capture of a large Spanish gun- vessel, by the boats of the Scout and Morgiana, belonging to Lord Collingwood's fleet, in the Streights, on the 21st of May: one man was killed; and another slightly wounded, belonging to the. Scout.—' 1 he Scout," Morgiana, and Redwing, had completely scoured the Gut; and, in the course of a fort- night, had taken and destroyed 13 vessels. The Gazette likewise contains a dispatch from Sir S. Auchmuty, at Monte Video, of the 20th of April. An attack had been made upon Colonel Pack's post, at Colonia, on the 22d. The enemy came in a body of 1000 strong, but were re- pulsed. They loft eight killed and eight wounded on the field. We hail none killed on our part; but Major Trotter was wounded in the body, and the bone of Captain Wingress's arm was shattered. The opinions which have been recently ex- pressed in parliament, on both sides of the House, as' to the necessity of bringing forward strong and efficient measure's for the protection of the coun- try, at the present crisis, give us reason to sup- pose, that the most effectual means will be adopted to preserve . us from the encroachments of the Usurper; who, actuated by motives of revenge, and influenced by his late" successes on the Continent, will leave nothing unattempted which may tend to the subjugation of this country. We sincerely hope that the similarity of opinion between Ministry and Opposition, will lead to future unanimity of sentiment on the measures to be adopted. A general union, indeed of all parties, on every topic which may become the subject of future discussion, either in or out of the House, is not to be expected; but we think the present situation of the country demands, that all should give the united influence of their talents and consequence to the support of such measures as may he deemed necessary for our security and independence. Subordinate consi- derations may be waved, and mutual concessions take place, while this grand end is promoted, is not worth the while to consider now, whether • the issue of the contest on the Continent might not have been foreseen; the events, which we deplore, have now actually happened; and, there- fore, if the threatening consequences of them, as far as they relate to this country, are to be pro- vided against at all, the very latest period for making that provision is now arrived. Our pre- sent situation is awful enough to require the anxious and incessant thought of every man in the kingdom who is capable of thinking, and who would not wisli, to see his country the prey of a Trench soldiery, and his fellow- subjects the slaves of a foreign power. But it may be said, that the enemy will propose terms of peace to us, and it is very " likely he may; such offers have generally preceded his most determined and overwhelming hostilities; so that in addition to the bitterness of defeat, his malevolence has had the gratification of galling his enemies with reflections on the blindness, the obstinacy, the infatuation of re- jecting his proffered friendship. But let not the sound of peace relax our efforts, or lull our at- tention : Peace itself, with such a man, is but a word descriptive of another species of warfare; a term applied to an incessant state of wrangling about rights, disputing about interests, and, on all occasions, the fraudulent seizure of ad- vantages. But how if peace is not concluded, or not even offered ? Then look at the state of the contest; and it is necessary that we should look to it. Then say if this is not a time to put forth all our ener- gies. Our enemy has not his plans to arrange now; he has not his troops to raise, to arm, to train and discipline. It is both folly and cowardice to hoodwink our minds to the consideration of these facts. Ministry and Opposition ( induced by a question of Mr. Whitbread's) wisely united on Monday night in culling our attention to them, and the same subject, is to be renewed on Wednes- day. We have no friend, no support, no a 11 v in the world, but our own courage and heroism; the whole earth contains not a nation, scarcely even an individual, that dares utter a wish or breathe a prayer in our behalf— Bonaparte would stifle it before it reached the air. But if the dif- ficulties of the times are unexampled, let the energies to meet them be equally vigorous; let us reflect that our existence as a free people is at stake; let there be no paltering for gain and office among our leaders : for if the predominance of a party, instead of the preservation of the whole; if petty interests, and not the general weal; if the triumph of factions, rather than the honour of the country,, is to be sought for, the game is already lost, and wretched indeed are the people who are under the guidance of such States- men. But other objects and other aims, we trust, incite the ambition, and stimulate the zeal of those who govern, and those who legislate for us in the present perilous times. The dangers that assail them from without have been considered; the difficulties that surround us within are scarcely less numerous or less formidable. Hie duties of their station imperiously call upon them for immediate execution; it must be theirs to search the records of the army and navy through, for bravery, skill, and enterprise, and call them into action ; to pry into the bureaus of office, for industry, talent, and fidelity, and give them employment; to brush aside the obtrusive importunity of family preten- sion, which tenders service only to grasp at place; to dispossess incompetence, whatever be Its rank or station; to cherish every patriotic principle, to rouse every latent energy, and to let the people know, from their speeches in and out of Parlia- ment, the infinite difference between the " high and palmy state" of a free, glorious, and inde- pendent nation, and that of an abject herd of slaves, crouching to the will of a foreign Usurper; between the mild sway of an hereditary and limit- ed Monarchy, and the remorseless tyranny of upstart ambition; and, above all, it must he their aim to increase this contrast as much as possible, by a rigid economy in the public expenditure, by the resumption of improvident grants, by heighten- ing our comforts, and alleviating our burthens. The resources of the country are under their direction; its cause, is in their hands. Remember, if it fails there, posterity will * ot liftyp one curse to spare for the tyrant who subdues us ; they must be all reserved, were they millions, for the States- men who betray us. Since our last, two Tonningen Mails have arrived, with letters and papers, from Altona and Ham- burgh, to the 12th instant. It appears, that the Emperors of Russia and France, and the King of Prussia, were still at Til- sit on the 1st, upon the most intimate and friendly footing. Prince Kurakin was to negociate peace on behalf of Russia, and General Kalkreuth on the behalf of Prussia, withTalleyrand on the part of France. An artiele from Stettin states, that peace had been actually signed between these three Powers. The latest accounts from Berlin are dated the 7th, and add, that preparations were made in that city for the reception of the King of Prussia, who was shortly expected to arrive there, accompanied by the Emperor of Russia and Bona- parte. It is hinted in these papers, that the kingdom of Poland is to be re established, with the Grand Duke Constantine at its head; and that Silesia, with some other territory, is to be erected into a kingdom for Jerome Bonaparte; both these new Kings to be married to German Princesses. The remainder of the Prussian Monarchy will remain to its present Sovereign. Part of the troops from England had landed at Prouewick, in the Isle of Rugen; and other trans- ports of easy draught of water, had gone round to Plym. The King of Sweden has not yet evinced any pacific disposition. He removed his head- quarters to Frauzburg, on the 6th, and . only waited the expiration of the stipulated period to re com- mence hostilities. The Swedish army now comprises 56,165 men. The navy consists of 16 sail of the line, 12 frigates, 23 sloops, & c. and 183 gun- boats. Government yesterday received dispatches from the Mediterranean, dated Alexandria, May 21st, containing an account of the death of that gallant and worthy officer, Sir Thomas Louis, after an illness of only two days, on board the Canopus. The garrison of Alexandria was in good health, and provisions were abundant. The Albanians bad made two or three demonstrations of an in- tention to attack the city, but did not venture to make any serious attempt. Our troops burnt about thirty of their germs. The following is said to be a true statement of the landing in Calabria by the Prince of Hesse Philipsthai:— The Prince of Hesse Philipsthal landed in Calabria with only 3500 of iiis Sicilian Majesty's troops; they immediately advanced to Mileto, where a battle took place, on the 28th of May, between them and twice the number of French. The Prince did not lose more than 350 in killed, wounded, and prisoners. Among the first were 10 officers. The'Sicilian troops fought with the greatest bravery. After the battle they fell back upon Reggio, of which they kept pos- session, and the French were obliged to return within their old positions. His Sicilian Majesty's troops have also become masters of Colrone, of which they were not in possession before. It will be recollected, that this was the place to which the French retired after the glorious battle of Maida. The ship George is arrived in the Downs from St. Domingo. She has brought private letters which state, that, Christophe, the new Chief, was completely in disgrace, and that Petion had been invited to assume the supreme power of the State. — This invitation, it is added, was immediately accepted, and the first act of Petion was to order an embargo on all vessels in Port- au- Prince, in order to enable him to convey troops to Gonaves, to act against Christophe. Yesterday morning were received New- York Papers to the 14th ult. The trial of Colonel Burr was still suspended, in consequence of the non- arrival of General Wilkinson. Not a word is said in these papers respecting the treaty with this country. The first division of the fleet, destined for the Baltic,- set sail from the Downs on Sunday after- noon. Besides frigates, sloops, and brigs, it con- sisted of the undermentioned ships of the line:— Maida 74 Ganges 74 Defence 74 Captain 74 Saturday a Chapter of the Order of the Garter was held at Windsor, when the Marquis of Hertford and the Earl of Lonsdale were invested with the vacant blue ribbands, with the usual ceremonies. Army.— The Officers at present on the Half- pay of the British establishment are as follows:— Colo- nels, 70; Lieutenant- Colonels, 127; Majors, 67; Captains, 565. — On the Irish establishment: Colonels, 10; Lieutenant - Colonels, 10; Cap- tains, 64.— The Report does not extend to inferior ranks. It appears from the official paper delivered to the House of Commons, that the sums expended in Great- Britain for the Volunteer Service, from the 1st of June, 1803, to the 1st of January, 1805, amounts to the sum of one million eight hun- dred und thirty- four thousand three hundred untl eighteen pounds sixteen shillings. The total of Recruits enlisted in England and Ireland, in the course of the last year, was 10,783; in the present year 9,194 have been enlisted in England alone. Earl Spencer has hired Santon- Downham, in Norfolk, the seat of the late Earl Cadogan, for a sporting residence. It is with much pleasure we can state, that the subscription which was raised to defray tiie charges of Mr. Wilberforce's election, is more than ade- quate to discharge the expences on that occasion. The expences were under ^'. 40,000, and the sub- scription exceeded that sum; and Resides this, a subscription was set on foot, called a provisional subscription, that is, persons put down their names to supply certain sums of money in case the first subscription should not be enough. It is really pleasing'to find the nation thus forward in ex- pressing their gratitude to a man who has rendered such essential services to the cause of humanity and religion. A potter in Burslem has discovered a method of raising water from lower to higher levels, with less than one- half the power which is now ap- plied; and it is equally applicable to large or small concerns, even to a cammon pump. A most diabolical conspiracy has lately been discovered in the 28th Regiment of Foot, quartered at Maiden, in Essex.— It appears, for some time back, a great number of the privates have been afflicted with a disorder in the eyes, resembling the Ophthalmia, and accordingly many had been dis- charged from the service, and received pensions; however, upon a close investigation by some medi- cal men, one of, the villains confessed that a pernicious ointment had been applied to their eyes, purposely to injure the sight. Several of them have been taken up; and, upon an investi- gation of the business on Friday last, twenty- eight were committed to Chelmsford gaol for trial; and several others are to be tried by a Court- martial. A fatal accident, from the too prevalent mode of leaving fire- arms loaded, lately occurred at. Wicklmm Market: A young man, who had walked from Framlingham to meet his aged parents at Wickham, happeytd to take up itu old gun, which was occasionally used in keeping off birds, &: c. when it went off and the contents iodged near the heart of his mother, who expired the next morning. The Child with two ^ Mothers.— This curious cause was again brought forward at Guildhall oa Satur- day, but the circumstance having taken place within the district of the Ilatton- garden Police, it was referred to that Office, when it clearly ap- peared, by the testimony of the midwives, & c. of of Mary- le- bohnc workhouse, where the prisoner said she was delivered,' that no such circumstance had occurred; and by that of the midwife of St. Andrew's, Holborn, that the claimant was actually delivered in that workhouse of this identical child, which she was enabled to swear to by a peculiar mark on its forehead; and this testimony being cor- roborated by several women belonging to the work- house, who swore that the clothes in which the infant was found, were those delivered to the pro- secutrix by the parish- officers, the child was or- dered to be delivered to her. The prisoner, whose motive in getting possession of the infant appeared to be to enable her to extort money from some man with whom she cehabited, was committed for the misdemeanour. LONDON, July 16th, 1807. RICHARD ATTENBOROUGH, - SHEEP- SALESMAN, begs Leave to inform the Gen- tlemen Graziers and others, that his SHEEP will continue to be collected by his Brother JOHN ATTEN- BOROUGH, of Titchmarsh, instead of Walter Suction. R. A. also takes this Opportunity of thanking his Friends for their past Favours, and hopes, by an assiduous Attention to their Interest, to merit a Con- tinuance of them in future. GENERAL INFIRMARY, NORTHAMPTON, Jui. Y 18, 1807. r|', IHS is to give Notice, That on SATXRDAY the 8 lst Day of AUGUST next, will be held a General Court, at Twelve o'Clock in the Forenoon, to take the Reports of the Committee concerning the present State of this Society. And such Persons as wish to serve the Infirmary, are desired to send their Pro- posals, sealed up, to the Secretary, on or before Twelve o'clock on that Day, mentioning at what Rate they are willing to furnish the following Ar- ticles, for the ensuing Quarter, viz. BUTCHERS' MEAT, FLOUR, BREAD, made of all good Wheat, in Loaves of 14 Ounces each, Candles, Kice, Sugar, and Soap, in order that the most reasonable may be accepted. And it is further requested, that the Bills due by the Infirmary to the Lst of August next, may be then sent in to be examined and discharged. By Order of the Committee, W. INGM. AN, Secretary. GENERAL INFIRMARY, NORTHAMPTON, JULY IS, 1807. rjpiJIS is to give Notice, That the ANNUAL L STATED COURT pf the Governors of this Infirmary will be held here on SATURDAY the 1st of August next, at Twelve o'Clock in the Forenoon ; at which Time and Placeall I'er- ons subscribing Two Guineas or more per Annum ( being Governors accord- ing to the second Statute), are desired to give their Attendance ; that being the Court now appointed for the Examination of the Conduct of the Infirmary for the past, and the Direction of it for the ensuing Year. As the first Saturday in August is the Day now fixed by the Statutes for the Commencement of our Year, and as all our Annual Accounts are constantly made up to that Time, the Subscribers are earnestly desired to send or pay their Subscriptions for the ensuing Year at this Annual Stated Court. It is taken for granted, that all the Subscribers ( even those whose last Year's Arrears are yet unpaid) will continue their Annual Subscriptions, unless they send the Governors Notice, in Writing, on or before this Annual Stated Court in August, ot their Intention to withdraw their Subscriptions. By Order of the Committee, W. INGMAN, Secretary. Linen Rags are very much wanted for the poor Patients; if any Ladies or others have any such to dispose of, it would be deemed an acceptable Present to the Charity. Prince of Wales Alfred Centaur Brunswick .... Spencer .. 98 ... 74 ... 74 ... 74 ... 74 R1 The Mars, of 74, and three frigates, remain in the Downs. The second division will probably sail from Yarmouth to- morrow or Thursday next. It is now said, that Admiral Gambier does not vacate his seat at the Admiralty in consequence of his appointment to the chief command of tho Baltic squadron; and Admiral Stanhope's station in the river is to be kept open for him till his return. We may, therefore, presume, that the service upon which these officers are going, is expectcd to be of short duration. • The Expedition to the Baltic must be supposed to have other objects in view, besides merely keeping the navigation of the Sound open : a great number of flat- bottomed boats are preparing at Chatham and Sheerness, to go out with the fleet. These can only he of use in landing and embarking troops, a service for which, we think, they can hardly be wanted in our hostilities ( if hostilities they are to be) with Denmark. The following is an extract of a letter from a passenger on board the Coruwallis packet, lately arrived from the Mediterranean :— " On the 2d of July we fell in with a lugger privateer, under English colours, until she came within half- pistol shot, then gave us three cheers, and hoisted Spanish colours at the inizen, French and a bloody flag at the main ( thinking to make an easy conquest), firing a volley of musquetry and a broadside, which was instantly returned. Three times they attempted to board, but were repulsed with great loss of men; and af'fcr an engagement of an hour and fifty minutes, the whole time within pistol shot, she was obliged to haul off. There were five sail in sight, but she never at- tempted to speak any of them; from which we supposed she must have sustained considerable damage. The lugger mounted 14 guns, besides swivels, and quite full of men; our number, pas- sengers and all included, amounted to 36, bat very fine lads, not one above 30 years of age. TJiis is the second time the Cornwallis has been saved from a superior force; the former, which you might have been informed of, was in the Gut of Gibraltar, with eight gun- boats and a privateer, 450 men against 40." In the House of Commons, on Friday, Lord Castlereagh deferred his motion on tho National Defence until Wednesday next.— The Bill for the relief of the poor, aud encouragement of industry among the labouring classes, was read a second time on Monday, and committed for Thursday. JOSEPH OKELY, Grocer, Tea- Dealer, fyc. Bedford, F. TURNS his most sincere Thanks to his Friends and the Public, for the liberal Encou- ragement he lias met with in the WINE, SPIRIT, ai! d PORTER TRADE, during his late Partnership with Mr. BROWN, and respectfully informs- them, that that Partnership is now dissolved.— As he purposes to con- tinue the same Business on his own Account, and on his own Premises, he hopes to be favoured with the Continuance of their Orders; which he engages to execute with Care and Attention, on the best possible Terms, having laid in his WINES, LIQUORS, & C. of the first Qualities.

Wednesday and Thursday's Posts. LONDON, July 23. PARIS and Hamburgh Papers to the 15th inst, and Dutch Journals to the 20th, have been received. The Hagtie Courant Extraordinary of the 13th, gives the official account of the signature of the Preliminary Treaty of Peace between Russia and France on the 8th instant, at Tilsit; aud states, that the Ratifications were exchanged on the following day.— Peace with Prussia was likewise to be signed on the 9th of July. The Palis Papers contain the 85th and 86th bulletins of the French army. Their contents are unimportant. It is stated in a private letter, that Marshal Brunc has issued a threatening order of the day against the King of Sweden, in which he says, that his army will enter Swedish Pomcrania on the _ 13th. An express was received yesterday at the Ad- miralty from Plymouth, containing intercepted dispatches from " the French Government. They were found on board a French ship lately captured and carried into Plymouth. The King has granted to the Hon.

His Lordship said, that it was the intention of Government to hold out an inducement to the Volunteer Corps, to pass a portion of their drill- days on permanent duty, instead of common ordinary drill- days ; a mode which would be of the greatest advantage to the discipline of the I . Volunteers, and would convincingly prove what Vo- j lunteer force we really have, and what portion ot the | corps it might be necessary or desirable to dispense r with the services of. He concluded by moving for j leave to bring in two Bills, one for allowing enlist- j ment from the Militia into the regular army; and the other for supplying by ballot the deficiencies iheieby created in the Militia. Sir G. WARRENDER contended, that as the exer- tions required on the part of the country were great and unprecedented, so the country had a most un- doubted right to expect a just and rigid economy in its expenditure and dispositions. He was much afraid, however, that the plan just stated by the Noble Lord would not add to the strength of the country. The Noble Lord had talked of calling out the Supplementary Militia; but this, instead of doing good, he thought would produce nothing but embarrassment; besides, it would prove highly in- strumental in defeating the recruiting for the regular army. Mr. YORKE did not object to that part of the plan that went to draw a considerable number of men Irom the Militia into the regular army. He objected, however, to the balloting of 36,000 men to supply the vacancies in the Militia, and to increase its force. As to the plan which had been brought forward by a Right Hon. Gentleman ( Mr. Windham), he certainly thought that Parliament ought not rashly to repeal it, ST. PETER'S, BEMORD, July 14th, 180?. MRS.

In looking • , , i I r. vr. r tl,,. ruhirns witiirt, hurt hppn laid nnnn the table, he susx it appears that the regular recruiting ser- vice is upon the increase. The number of men ' and boys enlisted in the course of the last month j amounts to 1864; for the corresponding periods in the Years 1805 and 1800, the numbers were 1527 and 1239, out of which 997 were raised under the Additional Force Adt. In the last monthj not a single man was raised under that Act. An extraordinary commotion was observed in the tide, in Truro river, on the morning of Sa- turday se'miight: the sea had been ebbing about an hour and " ail half, when it suddenly recoiled, with a verv rapid current,, and flowed about 18 inches perpendicular at Truro quay— then ebbed off, and reflowed a second time. On Saturday se'nnight, in the evening, the rec- tory- house at Great- t ressingham, in Norfolk, was struck with lightning.— It entered one of the rooms with a most tremendous crash, rent the chimney- piece, and some pictures above it; and was then at- tracted bv the bell- wire, which it melted. Three ladies were in the room at the time, which appeared in a blaze, hut providentially all the family cscaped unhurt. The same afternoon, as a team belonging to Mr. Potter, of Leziate, near Lynn, was returning home, three of the horses were killed on the spot by the lightning; the fourth horse on which the man rode killed himself from his fright, and the other horse received a severe shock.— The rider sustained no injury.

DEFENCE OF THE COUNTRY. Lord CASTLEREAT, H rose, and said, that at the period at which Ministers came into office, the prospects on the Continent were not so unpromising as they have since proved to be. The situation of this empire Tendered it necessary that we should place our military establishment upon the most imposing footing. The same amount of force which now existed, would not enable his Majesty to maintain his foreign establish- ments, and teed his army. Before he sat down, be was in hopes he should be able to prove that ordi- naiy recruiting was far from being adequate to the exigency of the present crisis. He would admit, in- deed, that ordinary recruiting, freed from competition, bv which he understood it would be left to its own fair operation, might feed and keep tip an army al- ready brought up to its height ; but that it was wholly inadequate to feed and increase it at the same time.' Of all the measures which had ever been employed in this country, for raising a great military forte to meet the pressure of the moment, the mea- sure resorted to in 1804 was the most powerful; he rner. nt ihe creation of an Army of Reserve. The opera- tion of that step produced, in a very short space of time, tl ' greatest and most extensive advantages to the military service of the country. It was not, however, the intention of Government to draw trom that source at present. It was his intention to pro- pose a levy cf Militia, ar. d not an Army of Reserve. There we. e several reasons which induced him to think that a levy of Militia was preferable to an Ari' V. of Reserve. In the first place, there was a j proutness in the peasantry of this country to enrol themselves in the Militia. It was a service to which they naturally gave a preference. The average of bounty woukl'also be less in raising from the Militia than directly for the army. The habits of the country were long made up to ballots for the Militia. 11 was a species ot. compulsion which they viewed without any t'. rror. It had been calculated, lhat, from the month of December next to the May following, the Militia would be subject to a waste of from 5000 to 6000 men, who would be entitled to their discharge, from the suspension of the ballot made by the system of the Right lion. Gentleman ( Mr. Windham), which was adopted last year; anu this number, as well as those be his P'roperty, who should how volunteer into the line, was to be made up by the ballot. Atter this operation ot the ballot » vas ended, security ought to be given to the line, that no b- llot should take place for two or three years, and thereby devolve on the regular army the rnly system of recruiting by the ordinary method. In looking to what the Militia Regiments might be able to spare, he should go back to what had been done at former periods, and he believed the draft had been calculated at two- fifths of the establishment. It was now proposed to take the excess on three- fifths only, which he believed would in England give a force of 21,700 men; and the same mode resorted to in Ireland would give 8000 men. By the law as it now stood, his Majesty had the power vested in him of raising a Suppleinentaiy Militia of 20,000 men for England, and 4000 men for Scotland. He thought, therefore, it would be most advisable, in the present instance, to call for a Supplementary Militia, and an half of which would give a force of 38,000; out of those, there would be 10,000 supernumerary militia- men, which would make up tor the different wastes that must take place, and would thus leave to the country an increase to the army of 28,000 men. Having stated the extent to which the particular exigency of the times require the measures to be put, he should propose, that giving the men to the line should be left entirely to - the Militia Officers; and each regiment of Militia should from time to time receive his Majesty's warrants for this purpose : that for 30 days no man should leave the regiment, but with the consent of the officers thereof, and a third to be accepted if they ollered within the first 20 days. The Officers of the Militia to have commissions in the line, according to the number of men they re- spectively take, and to go with them directly from the Militia regiment, to such regiments of the line as they meant to enlist into.— It might be expected he should say something, as to what course Govern- ment intended to take with those branches of the force of the country which could not be considered as re- gular, and particularly with respect to the measure submitted by t! » Right Hon. Gent. ( Mr. Windham) called the Training Act. With respect to that measure, he must say, that had his Majesty's present Ministers been ever so much disposed to it, they had not had it in their power to make any effective progress in it, as that Kight Hon. Gentleman had most inge- niously contrived to lay aside the ballot in several counties, that it could not be proceeded on. With respect to the term for which the ballot should take place in this case, he thought thiee years not too long over the returns which had beenlaid upon thetable, he could not avoid observing, that as to the regular army, there were at present from 20 to 25,000 men deficient of that number which was applicable to the defence of the United Kingdom, at the time that he and his col- leagues were obliged to resign, on the charge of not having done their utmost to put the country into a proper state of defence. As to the men, however, who were to be raised by ballot, he should infinitely prefer the raising them on the Army of Reserve system to that of the Militia, and principally because in that case they might be sent over to Ireland. As to the Militia,' he really thought the best plan to pursue, was, to keep them up to the number of 30,000, and then send them to their respective counties. If the Train- ing Act were to be carried into force, he thought that 200,000 men, or whatever number were judged neces- sary to be called out, should be engrafted upon the Militia; that they should exercise in their own coun- ties, and never to be called out of them, except in case of actual invasion. The 30,000 Militia soldiers would be perfectly sufficient to instruct them in their military discipline, and such a combined force would be sufficient, ill conjunct ion yvith our Volunteer force, to repel any attempt which the Tyrant of France could make against this country. Mr. WINDHAM, however averse to prolong a pre- mature discussion of the Noble Lord's project, thought it incumbent on him to take notice of a few of the topics on which he had dwelt. Whatever opinions he might entertain on the general policy of the Mi- litia laws at the present crisis, he must certainly disapprove. of a system which took away the Militia, and gave us nothing in its stead. He had been tra- duced as an enemy ot the Militia, as well as the Volun- teers. He believed the Militia Officers wtre by this time convinced, lhat they had more to apprehend from their pretended friends than from him. He I begged the House to recollect, that he had never pro- posed his own plan as a specific or nostrum, which was to operate miraculously. On the contrary, he directed their attention to the simplicity of its prin- ciple, and to the probability of its ultimate efficiency. The returns before the Hquse justified his expect- ations. The Right Hon. Gent, reverting to his plan of temporary service, said, that his great object was, to bring back the military system to its original principles, according to which the service was its own reward. He knew of no criterion of the merits of a military measure but its failure or success, and in this point of view, he contended, the Additional Force Act had completely failed. It was to have raised 40,000 men by the 1st of October, 1805, and the whole that it had produced, tip to the period of its suspension, did not exceed 16,000; a number which could have been got in the time by the ordi- nary recruiting, at a much cheaper rate. The SECRETARY at WAR niade a few general obser- vations on the speech of Mr. Windham. Leave was then given to bring in the Bills; and Lord Castlereagh accordingly brought them up, when they were severally read a first time. A conversation of some length took place on the day to be appointed for the debate on the second reading of these Bills. At length Lord Castlereagh consented to delay their second reading until Monday. Sir A. WELLESLEY gave notice, that on Friday he should move for leave to bring in Bills for Ireland, of a similar description to those just introduced by his Noble Friend. The other Orders were disposed of, and the House adjourned at halt- past twelve. WJ ANTED immediately, An APPRENTICE to IT a SURGEON and APOTHECARY. ( pf A Premium will be required.

YESTERDAY Government issued an Order for laying an embargo on all foreign ship: to the the rty ' N in he he hat ng ms ses ra- J r. ort ID, lehe > ut Ery led ice his ' pie ind ID D, b y Ihe the ins ; E & all the t. ide sm , is ind > N, t he ) P fcr- British harbours; and also on those belonging to British merchants, outward- bound. Not even a Ramsgate or a Margate hoy is suffered to pass Gravesend. Press warrants have been backed by the Lord Mayor, and there was yesterday a general sweep of all the seamen from every ship in the river.— It is generally understood, that the object of the embargo is to compete the manning of the 2d and 3d divisions of the Baltic fleet. Various rumours are afloat respecting the destination of this expedition, which is now fitting out with such uncommon activity.— In those circles that have the best means for obtaining information, it is believed that its primary object is to afford protection to a certain • power, not yet involved in the war, but which, by the effect of recent events, might be compelled to act against this country, if we did not send a force of sufficient magnitude to occupy, in spite of the enemy, those positions which otherwise might be gained by the French, and employed as means for our annoyance. It is also of great importance the French should be prevented from adding to the strength of their navy, by seiziug on the fleet belonging to a neutral Power. A Caution.— The following case is recommended to the particular attention of farmers and others, who occasionally send their carts under the care of servants on the public roads, to inform them that they are answerable and responsible for any . misconduct of those they employ:— Fulling v. Keketbick.— The plaintiff, a farmer at East Ham, brought his action in the Common Pleas, to recover a compensation in damages for an injury done his child, by the negligence of the defendant's servant. It appeared that the plaintiffs servant had the care of two children, and she was walking out with them in the above neighbourhood ill October last. One of the children was in her arms, and the other was playing in the . road, where the defendant's cart ran over it, and broke its leg. The driver of the cart, instead of minding his horses, was usleep on the shaft, and the accident mis attributed to his negligence. The infant was afterwards attended by a surgeon, whose bill amounted to,£. G0; and the learned Serjeant who conducted the cause was instructed to say, that amputation of the child's limb was yet likely to take place. An application was made to the defendant, who is also a farmer at East Ham, to com peps at? the plaintiff and his child for the misfortune that bad happened ; and the defendant was willing to pay the surgeon's bill, but observed he coti'd not be answerable any further for the negligence of his man : the present action therefore commenced. After the evidence had proved the facts, the- Jury found a verdict for the plaintiff. — Damages ,£. 160.

F R E D E R I C K WILLIAM. It appears that the hostilities between France and Sweden w ere re- commenced on the 13th. The French Commander has orders to prosecute the ! war with the greatest activity. The Swedes are retreating to Stralsund, which Napoleon has ordered to be taken by storm. From the present aspect of affairs, his determination seems to be to drive the Swedes entirely from Pomerania, and exclude the King of Sweden from all interference with the affairs of Germany.— A peace may, however, soon put an end to hostilities in that quarter. Poland, it is said, will be once- more restored to the rank of a kingdom! The Russians and Turks have hod several severe conflicts by sea and land; and the Porte has published an official account Of the second defeat of the English in Egypt, with the addition, that the garrison of Alexandria bad applied for permission to withdraw 011 board the ships of war in the harbour, which was granted. The second division of the English Expedition arrived at Elsineur at four o'clock in the afternoon of the 7th instant, several of which came to anchor; hut, 011 the filing of a gun at nine the same evening, they all got under weigh, and proceeded on their destination.

On Tuesday se'nnight, as two post- boys, belonging to the Crown, at Brackley, were returning home from Middleton, one of them thrown from his horse in Tusmore- lane, and expired in a Short time. On Monday se'nnigbt, a shocking accident happened at Staughtsn, in the county of Huntingdon : | — As John liall and William Bolton, tw. o young men, one about 20, the other 18 years oi' age, were keeping a cherry orchard there, the latter took up a fowling- piece, belonging to the fubner, which was loaded with powder and small stoners; the gun, accidentally and unawares, whilst in the hands of William Bolton, went off, and shot Hall between the left shoulder and breast, which caused his instantaneous death.— The coroner's inquept was taken, and a verdict of Accidental Death returned.— It is to be hoped this will be a caution to farmers and others, not to entrust their servants with guns, especially lads. On Thursday last was committed to the gaol of this county, by the Rev. Thomas Fawcett, Clerk, John Lee, charged with stealing an iron chain, & c. the property of Lord Forbes. - ASSIZE INTELLIGENCE. At Oakham assizes, John Lewio, of that place, was found guilty of an assault, accompanied with some very gros3 and aggravated circumstances, 011. a respectable young woman of Knosington, and sentenced to three months' imprisonment, with hard labour, and to find security for his good behaviour for two years. Mary Scott was found guilty of stealing from the house of her master, with whom she lately lived as servant, and was sentenced to three months' imprisonment, and a fine.—- The Judge, before j passing sentence upon her, laid much stress upon the impropriety of hiring any servant without a character from the place of their last service. He stated, that nothing could be more prejudicial to the true interests both of masters and servants; that it was particularly cruel and unjust towards the good servant, as it put the good and the bad upon the same level, if the one could get a place as easily as the other; that when it was considered how much the comfort of families and neighbourhoods depended upon the orderly and regular conduct of servants, and how many opportunities for dishonesty must necessarily be afforded to those who were dishonestly inclined— he hoped that all masters and mistresses, not only from a proper regard to their own interests, but from a sense of duty they owed to society in general, would he careful not to receive a servant in their family without a good cha. acter; and would afterwards pay the strictest attention to their behaviour, fur which they were both morally and legally responsible.— By an Act of theSSdof George 3d, " Anv person giving a false character to a servant forfeits At Lincoln, Charles Wilcock, butcher, for uttering a bill of exchange for forty pounds, drawn on Messrs. Smith, Ellison, & Co. knowing the same to be forged, received sentence of d^ ath; as did John Coxon, alias Lincoln Jack, aluis' Grantham Jack, alias Silk- eyed Jack, late of Birmingham, horse- dealer, for stealing a black gelding, the property of John Holland, of Holbeacli. T. Fletcher, for having married three different wives, all of whom are now living, was ordered to be imprisoned nine months; Robert Dydle, charged with receiving sundry bank- notes and cash, the property of John Winks, knowing them to have been stolen, to be imprisoned six months; and Frances Lefevre, alias Frances Marshall, for bigamy, to be imprisoned three months.— John Herring, charged with breaking open a desk at Coningsby, and John Wighttnan, charged with' stealing the country bank- notes, & c. which were found on Robert Dydle, were acquitted; and against John Hammond, charged with a rape, and Serjeant Thompson, charged with breaking open the shop of Richard Everard, of Spalding, 110 true bills were found. At Nottingham, William Marriott, for altering a w ill, f nd Samuel, Jennings, for stealing banknotes, were found guilty— death; the former left for execution. James Travis and Christopher Harding, for liousc- breaking, and Mary Harding ( Harding's wife) for stealing a piece of linen- cloth, to be transported for seven years. At Derby, James Walton, for manslaughter, and Ann Barlow, for felony, were acquitted; and Benjamin Sturges, for manslaughter, was fined Gs. 8d. and discharged. At Leicester, Wm. Smeeton, for shop- breaking, was sentenced to be transported for seven years; William Woodhouse, for stealing fowls, to go for a soldier; Thomas Fisher, for horse- stealing, John Ward, for obtaining money under false pretences, and William Porter, for stealing fowls, were acquitted. Thomas Bradsliaw, for highwayrobbery, had not received sentence; and Thomas Chamberlain, for a rape, had not been tried when this account left Leicester. Lord Ellenborough and Sir Nash Grose opened the assizes for Cambridge on Monday last, but as there was not a prisoner to try on the Crown side, the learned Judge, after complimenting the county on the excellency of its police, discharged the Grand Jury.— The trials on the Pleas side commenced on Thursday morning. At Worcester assizes, a cause which excited considerable interest in the county was tried by a special jury, viz. an ejectment brought by Sir J. G. Cotterell, Bart, the heir at law of the late Mrs. Freeman, of Henley Park, Oxfordshire, against Joseph Harris, of Stanford, Esq. the sole executor and residuary legatee of that lady. The trial commenced at half- past eight o'clock 011 Tuesday morning, and Mr. Baron Graham finished a most able summing- up of the evidence at half- past two o'clock on Wednesday morning. The jury immediately retired from court, and after a consultation of about twenty minutes, delivered a verdict for the defendant, thereby establishing the codicil to Mrs. Freeman's will, and Mr. Harris's right to the residue of that lady's personal property, ar. d also to a considerable estate in the parish of Rock, in the couuty of Worcester, P R I C E of C O R N per Quarter Northampton, Saturday, July 25. at Wheat, 62i. to 72s.

From the LONDON GAZETTE. Saturday, July 18. Dozening- Street, July 17, 1807. DISPATCHES, of which the following are copies and extracts, have been received by Viscount Castlereagb, from Major- General Eraser, commanding in Egypt:— Extract of a Letter from General Stewart to General Eraser, dated, Roselta IJnes, April 18. From the great extent of the town ( Rosetta), it was found impossible that our small army could invest more than one half. A line was accordingly taken up from the Nile to the front of the Alex- andrian gate, thence retiring towards the plain, where our dragoons were posted. A mortar and some guns were brought into play early in the afternoon ; these were answered by the shouts of the Albanians from their walls, and by incessant discharges of musketry through the loop- holes and crevices, which were innumerable. In conformity with your instructions, Captain Hallowed and I sent, on the 8th instant, a summons, and favourable terms, to the Civil and to the Mi- litary Governor, accompanied by an address to the inhabitants. We were requested by the former, in their answer, to await their receiving instructions from Cairo, for which purpose a temporary sus- pension of hostilities was proposed. It not being expedient to accede' to this, we continued to batter the town; and by the 10th, had two mortars, two 12- pounders, a howitzer, and a six- pounder, in play ; on the 12th, a work for five six- pounders, and 32- pound carronades, was completed, imme- diately opposite to the Alexandrian gate. Skir- mishes on our left were in the mean time frequent. The summonses were repeated to the Albanian Chiefs, on the 12th. Our flag of truce was thrice ! fired at; and it was only bv means of a great reward, that a common Arab could be induced to be the bearer of any communication with such enemies. From the 12th to the 18th nothing extraordinary occurred. Relying on the approach of the Mame- lukes, every exertion was continued in getting up stores, ammunition, and provisions from the depot on the lake. This service was attended with con- siderable fatigue, the route being for a space of nearly seven miles over deep sands. On the 15th, the enemy gave our right flank con- siderable annoyance, by two guns in separate bat- teries, on the opposite bank of the river ; of these it was necessary to dispossess them. MajorM'Donaid, 78th regiment, was detached across the river, in front of Aboumandour Mosque, before day- light on the 16th, with 250 men; Lieutenant Robinson, of the Tigre, accompanied the Major, with 40 seamen, whose services were particularly valuable; he made a circuitous march, and arrived in rear of the batteries by dawn of day; he captured and completely destroyed them, and fired several rounds into the town from their own guns; he then sent the guns, with 12 camels and a considerable number of tents, across the river. The enemy receiving reinforcements, the Major retired, and effected this service in an equally good style: although under fire from the enemy, he reimbarked the whole of his detachment in the best order, and had only four men wounded. We have done great damage to the town, and have not thrown less than 300 shells from mortars alone. The indifference, however, of the enemy to the miseries which are unavoidably caused to the inhabitants, is manifest. Although his force be said to exceed 300 cavalry, 800 Albanians, and 1000 armed inhabitants, yet from the extent, and from the peculiar nature of his lines of defence, to attempt an assault is decidedly not an adviseable measure. Our success will depend on the arrival of the Mamelukes. General Return oj Killed, Wounded, and Missing of 1 he Army serving against Roselta, from the 6th to the 18th of April, inclusive, 1807. 1 Serjeant, S rank and file killed; 1 Brigadier- Ge- neral, 1 Brigade- Major, 1 Captain, 1 Lieutenant, 6 Serjeants, fjO rank and tile, 5 horses, wounded. Extract of another Letter, from the same to the same, dated Camp, Eastern Heights, Alexandria, April 26. The expectation of the junction of the Mame- lukes had chiefly induced me to persevere in the attack of Rosetta: every exertion was continued to be made by such artillery as we could command, in reducing the enemy to'surrender, but without effect: the mistaken ground upon which we were acting, respecting the Mamelukes, and the general deception of our informers, were now about to become manifest. On the 19th, the enemy left his position opposite Ilamet, and, crossing the river near Elsme, esta- blished himself there. He advanced from Dibet against llamet on the same day, and attacking Major Vogelsang's position on the left, was re- pulsed with loss; a diversion was made at the same time at Rosetta, in a sortie against the loft of our lines, by about 80 cavalry and 200 infantry ; the 35th regiment and the dragoons were engaged; they repulsed the enemy with much spirit, and drove him as usual to his walls. The 35th had in this affair two killed, and 14 wounded. I this evening detached the light companies of the 35th, and of De Rolle's, to the post of El Hamet, under the command of Captain Tarleton, of the former. His orders were to drive the enemy across the Nile, either during that night, or early next morning. On attempting to effect this service on the 20th, the enemy was found to be powerful in cavalry, and Captain Tarleton retired. Ashe retreated, he divided his detachment; he directed the march of his own company to the left position, and sent De Rolle's, reinforced to 100 rank and file, to Hamet village. While crossing ' the plain, the latter detachment, under Captain Reinack's orders, was suddenly attacked bv 200 cavalry, and as it should appear, was with little opposition routed; two thirds were cut iu pieces. Report of this reaching me by eleven o'clock in the forenoon, I detached Lieutenant- Colonel M'Leod, with two companies of the 78th regiment, one of the 35th, a picquet of dragoons under Captain Dclancv, and a six- pounder, to reinforce ; to the advancement of our Indian brethren in. the the post and take the command. Two more com- I scale of civil life, but, like the gift of old, mentioned pan, es followed in the afternoon, with a day's pro- | tyj,^ ,' P?!' 1?.' nlav be I vision for his whole force, ammunition, & c. all which arrived safely. On the arrival of the rein- forcement, the enemy retired towards Dilcg, and I received assurance from the Lieutenant- Colonel, before sun- set, of the perfect security of his post. I visited the post of Hamet during the night of the 20th, and confirmed mv former instructions to Lieutenant- Colonel M'Leod, viz. that he should defend the post to the utmost. I at the same time conccrted measures for a general retreat on the succeeding night, unless certain intelligence ot the Mamelukes should arrive on the 21st. About seven o'clock on the morning of the 21st, I received the following express from him:-- " The Cavalry were not to be seen this morning; but to my utter astonishment, from 60 to 70 large germs, and a large brig, are now coming down the Nile upon us. 1 do not know what to say of this; it appears, undoubtedly, a reinforcement to the enemy, and one of considerabe magnitude. I take it for granted they have gun- boats among them. I must make preparation, and be ready to retire upon you. Let me know as soon as possible."— My answer was not received, the dragoon being unable to penetrate to the post. The advance upon us of a strong body of cavalry, prevented my detaching single corps to their relief, and it was necessary that the whole army should move to- gether. T he field guns were first withdrawn from the batteries, all camels were laden with ammu- nition and isdispensable stores; the carronades and mortars kept up their fire on the town to the last moment that could be spared, and were then de- stroyed and buried; all spare ammunition and stores were set fire to, and blown up. The picquets remained in their fleeches until the field train, the wounded, and the stores, were assembled in the plains, under the charge of the 78th and De Rollc's regiment, which formed a square round them.— The brave 35th then retreated, followed by the picquets. Our casualties, during this retreat, did not exceed 50 killed and wounded, and none were captured. The loss of the enemy was considerable, but we made no prisoners. By sun- set we arrived at the depot. Having left'our wounded and our 12- pounder on board germs here, and refreshed the army, we advanced to Edko, and took up our former position about two in the morning. On the 22d, the whole of the stores, which were at Edko, were safely embarked for the Caravansera, when the army marched for that post, and arrived in the afternoon without opposition. No certain intelligence has reached me respecting the fate i5f the detachment under Lieutenant- Co- lonel M'Leod. General report confirms their defeat in the forenoon of the 21st, and states many of them to be prisoners.

The Report of the Royal College of Physicians, on the Vaccine Inoculation, being printed, we find their opinions corroborated by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Edinburgh, and by the Royal College of Surgeons iii Ireland, who all concur in the efficacy, safety, and almost certainty, of the Vaccine Inoculation. Among other things in the Report, the College state— " As there were, however, a few who differed widely from their Brethren on the subject, the Col- lege deemed it their duty, in a particular manner, to enquire upon what grounds and evidence the opposers of Vaccination rested their opinions. From personal examination, as well as from their writings, they endeavoured to learn the full extent and weight of their objections. They found them without experience in Vaccination, supporting theii opinions by hearsay information, and hypothetical reasoning ; and upon investigating the facts which they advanced, they found them to be either misapprehended or mis- represented." The concluding paragraph of the report will convey the general opinion of the College. It is as follows :— " From the whole of the above considerations, the College of Physicians feel it their duty strongly to recommend the practice of Vaccination. They have been led to this conclusion by no preconceived opi nion, but by the most unbiassed judgment, formed from an irresistible weight of evidence, which has been laid before them. For when the number, the respectability, the disinterestedness, and the extensive experience of its advocates, is compared with the feeble and imperfect testimonies of its few opposers; and when it is considered that many, who were once adverse to Vaccination, have been convinced by further trials, and are now to be ranked among its warmest supporters, the truth seems to be established as firmly as the nature ot such a question admits; so that the College of Physicians conceive, that the public may reasonably look forward wijh some degree of hope, to the time when all opposition shall cease, and the general concurrence of mankind shall at length be able to put an end to the ravages at least, if not to the existence, of the Small- Pox. " LUCAS PF. PYS, President. " Royal College of Physicians, 1 < Sth April, 1807." YEARLY EPISTLE OF FRIENDS. The Yearly Epistle of Friends, lately printed, contains the customary exhortations to their Brethren to pursue a religious life and con- versation, and to train up their youths and servants in the same paths, consistent with the Christian profession. Some hints to, and concerning those who, by convincement, have joined the Society, are likewise included.— The following are the only temporal subjects touched on in this year's Epistle:— " On the particular inspection this year into the state of our religious Society, various objects tending to its welfare have engaged our attention; some of which we shall endeavour briefly to lay before you. But first we are inclined to express our thankfulness for an event which concerns not us only, but incalculable multitudes of our fellow- creatures— our fellow- possessors of the faculty of reason— our fellow- objects of the redemption which comes by Christ. We scarcely need name the I :,' n"= n", I, lcr? a, on' at the White- Hart Inn, Ainpt- , lull, Bedfordshire, unless disposed of by Private Contract, of which timely Notice will be given t, _ - J — — IJIH- r, A Very neat, well- built, Brick and Tile Sashed Jc HOUSE, in good Repair, pleasantly situated HN CHURCH- STREET, AMPTHILL, Bedfordshire, fit afor the Reception of a small independent Family • j consisting ot a good Kitchen, Pantry, Cellar, two hieat Parlours, four Sleeping- Rooms, with neat Fire- places and Closets, three good Garrets, a detached tpcullery, with a Pump and Well of good Water bherein, a good Laundry, a Two- stall Stable and some of the Indian nafions to' aTtam to the oenents of civilization, is still continued with vigour and with increasing success. We are gratified with being informed of the contribution which Friends in this nation have raised in order to participate in this work of benevolence. Six thousand pounds of it are al- ready put in train to be remitted to America; about nine hundred more are ready to follow, and we have cordial assurances from our friends abroad, that they will readily take upon them " the administration of this service;" which we trust will not only prosper ORNAMENTAL ARCHITECTURE.

Her Knee was healed in the Worcester Infirmary; and she experienced some Benefit while a Patient, for a short Period, in St. Bartholomew's Hospital; 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 fo' 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, Drury- Lane.

A Letter from W. DRAYTON, Esq. Sion- Hill, Bath, to, Mrs. VINCENT, sole Proprietor of the GENUINE GOWLAND's LOTION. M ADAM, AYoung Gentleman, aged about seven Years, . Son of a Colonel in the Army, was afflicted with a virulent and sore Eruption, accompanied with a running and an intolerable itching in the Wrists and Insteps, the only Places of Attack of the Complaint, and that to so violent a Degree, as to make it necessary to confine his Hands in Bags, particularly at Night. The Complaint resisted various Applications from the united Consultation of three Physicians of Eminence, and continued to grow worse under the Regimen prescribed ; when a Lady, who had received a Cure of a very bad Case of Scurvy in the Face, of several Years standing, by your GOWLAND'S LOTION, recommended a Trial of the same Remedy. It was applied under my own Inspection— the Disease gave way— and three Quarts of your Lotion performed a radical Cure of a loathsome Disorder, which had been of about four Years' Duration^ and had baffled the Skill of several Physicians eminent in their Profession. From my Conviction of the above Cure, I recom- mended your Gowland's Lotion to a Lady, whose Face exhibited a very disagreeable Eruption, even large Pustules, and as one died away another appeared, so much so, as to prohibit her going into Company ; a Pint of your Gowland's Lotion effected a Cure, and she is now free from Eruption.— I am, Madam, Your very obedient humble Servant, WILLIAM DRAYTON.

Copy of a Letter from Mr. Brett ( Father of the. late Mrs. Chapman, Theatre- Royal, Covent- Ga'rden), new 71 Years of Age, and resident in Liverpool, to whom Reference may be had. SIR, Liverpool, 9th Feb. 1805. FOR many Years during the Winter Season, or in foggy Weather, I have been subject to Asthma, Cough, and Wheezing, which rendered mv Breathing very painful and difficult, so that I could scarcely follow my Profession asa Music- Master, particularly when I had to ascend rising Ground, being obliged to stop frequently, for a considerable Time, to re- cover my Breath. After having taken every Thing that was prescribed in vain, I was prevailed on to try the Effects of the Cordial Balm of Gileatl— a single Bottle produced the most happy Change for the better — every Symptom was relieved; and I can safely aver, that it is one of the best Medicine? I ever knew for such a Complaint as I laboured under, and have no Doubt of its being of the like Service to Persons suffering uneler the same Affliction. I am. Sir, Your obedient Servant, G, BRETT. To Dr. Solomon, Gilead- House.
