SATURDAY, JULY 30, 1808 PRICE SIX P ESC E. WEDNESDAY'S POST. LONDOfr, TUESDAY, JULY 26. WE suppose we % Via\\ be informed of the result of Sir Arthur Wellesley's expedition about Vhe beginning of next month: he « u'l\ vi\ on the 12lh, and Kould reach the Tagus probably about tiie22d: Wis force is equa\ Ao that under JuiioV, of whom we hope he has, by this time, given a good account. Sir Charles Colton w iH give as good an account, we trust, of the Russian squadron. Lord Vi ni. Bent'mck goes out hi the fleet, in a cVi- pfotnati'c character. Private letters were on Tuesday received from Holland, which stale, ffiat the French troops have almost all evacuated that country, and proceeded towardsSpain. Extract of a letter from an officer of General Spencer's expedition, dated Gibraltar,' the f£ Hfi of June:—" The weather having set in extremely warm, occasioned the fe. ver to break out in the army of General Spencer, previous to its re- em- barfcaliun. The sea breezes however, were thought equal to cbeckinc it: some gallant soldiers had fallen victims, amougstthcra Capt. fluglies, royal artillery, in the prime of life, sincerely beloved and regretted throughout that regiment. * His remains • were interred with all the respect due to Iris rank : lis very faithful servant was much noticed in tlie solemn train. A tomb has been erec/ erl to his memory with this motto, " A'on Siln: sed Patrice," inscribed thereon, being that of his loyal family, which has ever been distinguished for embarking in the service of his country ; he w as son of the late Gen. Hughes, and a brother of Lieutenant Hughes, - who gloriously fell on board the Soya] George, in the ever memorable action ofthe 1st of Juue, 179i." Mr. Dutf leaves London on Tuesday for Ports- mouth, from whence he will immediately sail in a frigate already appointed for his reception, for Cadiz. From thence he is lo proceed to Seville, as Minister to the Supreme Junta. Mr. Frere < loes not accompany him. The frigate which con- - vevs Mr. Dull' to Spain, takes out one million of • dollars for the use of the Spanish Patriots, which are to be placed at the disposal of the Supreme Junta at Seville. Government has authorised the gallant Sir Sam. Audi muly to raise a Legion for the ' Service ofthe Spanish Patriots. The Ross- shire regiment of militia, quartered at Uorman- crosg, on Saturday made an oiler of their • services to assist the efforts ofthe Patriots. The Lord Mayor gave a grand dinner yester- day, in honour of the deputies from the various provinces ol Spain, who have arrived in this coun- try. A gentleman arrived from Port- au- Prince, via Jamaica, states, that in May, the northern and southern armies in Hayti, under the respective com- mands of the rival chiefs, were engaged for four < lavs, near Gro Morn, in the department over • which Chrrstophe exercises authority. The result was, that 1,600 of Christophe's party were killed, and 600 taken prisoners ; and Petion, at the head of 16,000 xeii, was marching for Cape Fran- cois. Cbristophe bad made his escape from the field of battle, and was supposed to be at Fort Milo, a distance of five leagues from the Cape. During the heavy storm of rain, thunder, and lightning, oil Monday morning, at half past nine o'clock, a ball of fire struck the house of Mr. Mil- Ion, fishmonger and fruiterer, of Crown- street, Walworth; ran down a sword hanging at the win- dow of a room where Mrs. Warner was sitting, • without doing her any injury ; passing a wainscot, which it shivered ' to pieces, it finally exploded in the lower room, where Mrs. Milton was at breakfast, and struck fier; she fell to all appearance lifeless, bui by medical aid, the use of one side • was restored ; the other is wholly devoid ot feeling, like the effects of a paralytic stroke. The thermometer belonging to the Liverpool In- firmary, on Tuesday sennight, stood at 90 in the shade; a degree of heat not remembered in that place for a number of years. A correspondent observes, " that the average beat observed at Port Royal, in Jamaica, is 84°. I have observed the degrees of the instrument at Port Royal, and compared them with observations made at" Kingston, and in Shirewood- pen, and have seldom found the heat greater iu the same day than 87°, and generally that heat, if continued three or four days, has produced most dreadful thunders and lightnings. I have known the? mer- cury sink to 36° during the night, the average lieat of the night air being about 41°, and thus, Sir, it is the sea breeze, which sets in about nine o'clock m the evening, that moderates the diurnal heats, and renders the day more supportable." Brighton, July 22.— The South Glocester mi- litia were reviewed on the Level this morning by Lord C. Somerset. There were but few fashion- able spectators on the ground. Earl Berkeley was in a barouche with his Countess, observing all that passed. The weather was fine, and highly favour- able to the proceedings. The Duke of Norfolk is in the list of departures. Public Office, Marlborough- street.—' Tuesday a man named John Reynolds, was charged at this office with riotious behaviour on Sunday flight, ill St. Giles's. The circumstances of his case, were somewhat singular. About twelve in the morning the prisoner cameup to a watchman in Dyot- street, and called on him to take him tothe watch- house. The watchman supposing such strange conduct could only be the effect of intoxication, paid no attention " to what he said. The prisoner then in- sisted on himself being taken into custody, saying that he had been guilty of so many robberies that his crimes sat heavy on his conscience, and he commanded the watchman to take him into cus- tody on his own confession. The watchman still refused to apprehend him, saying, that if there was anv truth in what he said, he should confess before a Magistrate; it was not in his power to appre- hend him unless be saw him kick up a row, break the peace, or thiewng, The man immediately took the hint, and became so extremely riotous, that for the peace ot the neighbourhood the watch- man was under the necessity of taking him to the •* atch- hotise. When aske'd by the Magistrate what he did to obtain a livelihood, he said " Nothing, Sir." He was committed to the House of Col- lection, Coldbath- fields. During some late excavations at Rome, there was discovered a subterraneous passage, by which the Emperors could go from their palace to the Flavian Theatre. Close to this passage there were about 20 J'ornkes or small chain bats lighted from above. PRESERVATION OF GROUSE.

RHEUMATISMS, PALSIES, AND GOUTY AFFECTIONS, with their usual concomitants, . spasm, or flying pains, flatulency, indigestion, and general debility ( originating in whatever source), are relieved and frequently cured by WHITEHEAD'S ESSENCE of MUSTARD PILLS, after every other means had failed. The Fluid Essence of Mustard ( used with the pill, ii\ those complaints where necessary) is, perhaps, the most active, penetrating, and effectual remedy in the world, generally curing the severest SPRAINS and BRUISES, in less than half the time usually taken by opodeldoc, ar- quebusade, or any other liniment or embrocation; and if used immediately after any accident, it prevents the part turning black.

EXTRAORDINARY GAZETTE OF SARAGOS. 8A, of the 3: 1 of July 1808. rpHF. day before yesterday, the 1st instant, * about mid light, the French army artcanijied in the environs of this capitnl, began to bombard the tO'Vu, nol ( Continued the boiobai< bjnent until the ev en- ing of the t'ol'owing d rv v ; eltiring vvhich time, upwards iff ouo thousand four hundred boihbs and shells were tlmnvn into the place. The French cavalry and in- fantry at'ocVed some of the gAt. es; but the heroic valour ot'the iriUnhkantSTiud troops of die line suc- ceeded in destroying, bv a well directed tire, vvVich was ifepl up with uncommon briskness, till who came within the range of their g « n « . The neighbouring fields were, strewed with the dead bodies of the French. The Patriots biavoiy. inaintained iheir post, amidst the numberless bombs and shells which struck their batteries. In the afternoon of the 1st instant, the attack was continued - by tire French artillery and foot, but they were also routed with a very considerable loss. On the Id instant at break of day, the attack was renewed at all points, and af'er having sustained a severe loss, mid convinced themselves of the persever- ing valour of t he defenders of this capital, the French troops retreated, after a lire which lasted twelve hours, without intermission, and proved extneuiely destroeiive to theii ranks. The enemy's bombs, shells, and balls, without doing any considerable mischief, mes- elv served to increase the hatred entertained against the enemy, and to remind us of the sacred duties which weo- ve to our religion, our country, our honour, and our King. The gallantry displayed by the officers and soldiers, and in particular by the artillery then', and the officers and troops who were stationed in the batteries and points attacked, is bevond all praise. His Excellency t lie Governor and Captain General, in order to shew ho v much be f, els coiieeroed n> rewarding distin- guished intrepidity and courage, has directed the dif- ferent Commanders to sendon a list of the officers and soldiers of the regular troops, aud the mass, who have particularly distinguished themselves, in order to bestow on them, in his Majesty's name, those marks or distinction which their eminent services deserve. A great number of arms have fallen into our hands, - anil in the possession of the French, slain iu the action, many precious articles were found, of which the. v had robbed the churches aud private houses: we have taken a great number of prisoners of war. In the fivv'n of Exeo twenty- fire of the enemy's ravaW and foot were made prisoners, and brought to this capital. Rv an express, which I " ft Valencia on the 50th of June, the pleasing, intelligence has been officially re- ceived, thai t , e French ar: ny, " otniwnded by General. Moncen, hav'- wr ao'noached the s ' d- capital on the 28Ih ultimo; the b- riferies averted tpon I m, and kept up for seven iio trs rr'th such unremULing hrr. s. knethat the Frenfh tee re defatted its I • i intense s Brighter, a/ id the neighbouring Jiil- ls-- ere covered 7): th their Head. The remains of their army retreated in the utmost disorder, exhausted with fatigue, a id destitute of provisions, with a vast num- ber of wounded, on the road to Madrid, where the main body of the. army of Valencia awaits them, to cut off the retreat of the few who remain, and put thein to the s^ ord, in return for the acts of violence against ttiis capital. REMARKS. It was to be expected thnt Bonaparte would make every elfoi t tn fix himself in Arragnn and in Leon, mid to secure the cities of Valladolid and Saragossa. Their importance is obvious to every one who looks at the map :— Could the enemy retain Valladolid they would be ab: e to isolate Galicia and Asturias from the rest of the patriotic provinces, and to command the course of the Douro.— Could they get possession of . Saragossa they would command the course of the F. bro ; whilst retaining Old Castile aud Navai re, they would have a passage open from the Pyrenean frontier to the heart of the Monarchy. Arragon and Leon, therefore, may be exacted to be the scenes of many sanguinary struggles. But tiie Patriots wilt have one great advantage over the enemy, in the difficulty to which the latter will be put to procure provisions. The provinces of Arragon and Leo'n are not capable of supporting largo armies. Supplies must, be drawn from other parts: they cannot be conveyed from France in sufficient quantities.; and the sea is shut against them. It is open to the Patriots, and the friendship and resources of England will prevent them from feeling any want of provisions, ammunition, or any article tliev may stand in need of. It was Genera! Cuesta's intention to make a second attempt to dis'odge General I. essplles from Valladolid. The Gatician army was on the 15th estimated at 80,000 men, most of it of course raw levies; but so were the larger part of the French armies at the com- mencement of tiie last war. Yet these taw levie s have already taken a good step towards discipline • for we find that in the battle of the 14th they shewed gwiat steadiness— they were not thrown into eon fusion — tiiev wilt soon be excellent soldiers. Iod - ed there is something in the character of the Spaniard which fits him ftir military setvice;— his genera! gravity of deportment gives him steadin ss and coolness— litis patient under difficulties, and submits to privations with great fortitude. CVIEDO GAZETTE, JUI. Y 13— The French in Barcelona are greatly in want of powder and provisions. A vessel loaded with pow der, and ano- ther with pork, have been taken from them. In consequence ot" this scarcity, the people were in the most critical circumstances, avid the French were quite at a loss what to do. If fliey tried to escape by sea, there was an Engliih squadron ; if by land, there was a cordon of troops diawn from Moncaelo to Malaro. I heir attempts against the first of these places, and also that on Montealt'gre, termi- nateel rather unpleasantly for those heroes, as tliey fancied they could take them without any trouble; but nothing can deprive them of the glory of hav- ing laid waste the whole plain of Barcelona, all ( he cultivated fields, all the villages and churches.— They have also burnt down a great number of houses in tl\ e tow ns of Matorell, Palleja, Molinos del Hey, and other places, ail within the district of the city of Barcelona. The Junta at Catalonia have established themselves at Lerida, in order to render the communication with Arragoii and Va- lencia Wore certain. Cuidad Rodrigo, July 6 — The insurrection con- tinues in Portugal. According to the accounts which have been received from the Captain Ge- neral of Traslos Moutes, dated froth his head- quar- ters at Lamegb, we learn, thai be liael defeated the army of Loison, when it attempted to pass from Alrney. da over the River. Duero, and afterwards through the neighbourhood of Lainego and Tron- coti. T be French lost 600 men, two howitzers, and three cannon, alljheir baggage, and 15 caissons richly loaded. The General has requested that the city of Rodrigo sliould produce a diversion, to occupy the enemy for four or five days at Al- mcyda, to allow him time to attack their army, as be bad reinforced bis own army with 5,200 Gal- liciaus. Extract of a private letter from St. Sebastian, of the II til July, 1808.—" l. ast Saturday, at half past one o'clock in tb « afternoon, arrived here a person of the name of Joseph, and found a city deserted by nine- tenths of its inhabitants, who fled before his arrival to shun his sight. T here was rot a single individual who returned the bows lie made in bis coach, and no shouts were heard but thoseofa woman in the Market- place, who on his passing by, exclaimed—' Long live Ferdinand VII' His entrv resembled the funeral of a poor deceased in the Hospital. A certain Urquijo complained of this conduct, but no attention was paid to bis com- plaints. The constituted authorities received him with the respect which is due to a foreign Prince, and told the Urquijo, that they could not controul the sentiments of the people. Joseph, on taking leave, expressed his gratitude to the constituted authorities, and found no fault with the w ant of attention on the part of the people, which he attri- buted to their attachment to the late dynasty, but declaring at the same time, that he hoped be should deserve and obtain the same attachment, in re- turn for the blessings which be should bestow ma his subjects." Some disappointment has been expressed, that, with such an evident superiority of force on the part of ( he Spaniards, General Diipont should have been able to maintain'himself so long. The delay is not however at all ominous. Gen. Dupont is one of the best officers of Bonaparte, an able1 engineer, an experienced soldier, and a man of strong mental resources. lie has displayed his skill in an extraordinary manner bv the position he has taken at Andujar: lie is plae: ed on the heights, which secure both his flanks and rear from attack, aiid he has the river ih front, over which alone he can be approached. General Castanos therefore, perhaps wisely, trusts to famine as the best means of securing his surrender without loss to himself; and if we may credit the reports from Cadiz, this event cannot belong protracted. The division that was sent to attack Saragossa a second time consisted of fresh troops— and it should seem under a different General. The name of Lefebvre, who made ( be first attack, is never men- tioned in the Saragossa Gazette of the 3el, and hence it is supposed that he fell in that attack. We have lieaicl that the General who commanded in the second was a General Moulraye, but of this we I are not certain. J Saragossa is capital of the province of Arragon, i the see of an archbishop ; situate in a fertile plain, , on the Ebro, by whose windings this country is J rendered so fertile, that it produces all manner of | fruits in great abundance. 1 lie city is large and handsome, the streets long and broad, but dirty and ill- paved. This city contains 17 large churches, with 14 convents, besides smaller. ' 1' he cathedral is a large and irregular building. The collegiate church of Our Lady of the Pillar is the most ie- markable edifice here, both for its supposed miracu- lous image, and its treasures. Whoever attentively views the image, finds his eye dazzled as it were by the sun, with the multitude of silver lamps and wax- lights continually burning in the chapel, mingled on all sides with I fie reflection of the gild- ings, jewels, and golden chandeliers, which are still a greater hindrance to the sight; so that it is not at all times the image can be viewed. The univer- sity here was founded in the year 1474, and confirmed in 1478. The trade is considerable. This city w. as founded by the Phainicians. 130 miles N'. N. W. from Barcelona, anil ICON. E. from Madrid. Bonaparte has been deceived ; he expected Spain would submit; but though the means he sent to enslave it are now found to be inadequate, and may be wholly destroyed, yet he will prepare such a force as will at first, perhaps, bear down all resistance, possessing himself of Madrid, Oviedo, & c. of all the great points, though not of an inch of the country. Then will comethe struggle. Then we shall see whether Spaniards act on the principle of victory or death. If they do they will succeed, Ihey will wear out and ruin the French; but this will be a work of time. Let us hope too, that other parts of Europe will throw oil' the French yoke, and that Spain will not have the cause of the world on her own shoulders. England should at this moment abandon all other considerations but Spain, Portugal, and the Mediterranean. Our fleets should surround the coast from Bayonue to Barcelona, having numerous transports with ar- tillery stores, troops, & c. to land at any point as occasion might require, annoying and diverting the French, assisting and protecting the Spaniards on the coasts.— Courier. The following are the positions of the French in Spain, as far as we have been able to ascertain them. There were two slrong divisions in and near Pampeluna. Bessiere's force, about 18,000 men, was on the frontiers of Biscay : it was that force which the Bishop of St. Atidero was march- ing against with the Asturian levies. Lassolles was at Valladolid. A French force was near Saragossa ; another occupied Barcelona; Mural's division was at or near Madrid; and Dupont was shut up at Andujar. A Commissioner, appointed by the Bishop and Provisional Government ot Oporto, is arrived in this country. lie is Mr. Ferrao, who was the Conservidor, or Judge, of British claims in the Supreme Court of Justice at Oporto, previous to the emigration of the Royal family. His report of the disposition and resources of the Portuguese Patriots is extremely favourable. No farther mili- tary proceeding hael taken place. Junot was strong- er than was at first believed. According to one report, he has received reinforcements; if so, it must be the detachment of Loison tent from Al- meida. The official papers have been published relative lo the treatment of tiie Pope, by Bonaparte. The Commentator upon these documents remarks, " that the last act of Bonaparte, which violates at once the most sacred principles of our holy religion and the law of nations, evidently proves thai, in- tending to destroy all ancient Governments, the family of Bonaparte wishes, above all, with a view to establish their atheism, to destroy the Roman Catholic Religion; being fully aware that it cannot build up its own tyranny, except upon the foun- dation of impiety."— Not content with occupying Rome, and taking from the Sovereign Pontiff ail temporal power, Bonaparte's troops laid violent hands upon the Cardinals, dragged them from the presence of the Pope, and treated them as prison- ers and criminals. T he Palace of the Pope was also violated. The following is extracted from a letter, lately received in England, from a gentleman resident in France:— " In this country very little is known of what takes place elsewhere : tiie greater part of the in- habitants allow, that there is no reliance to be placed on the public papers. Of the state of abject dependance in which the newspapers are kept, take the following instance: The official paper of Milan published a certain article relative to the political state of Italy ; this was copied a few days after into one of the daily papers of Paris, in conse- quence of which the publication of the said paper was suspended for two days, and soon after t he same article appeared in the Moniteur. You may thus easily imagine the ignorance we are kept in ; that, at most, we onlv see one side of the question. Of what is taking place south of the great mountains, we are perfectly ignorant, though now - and then a little ray of li'glil shines upon the back of the pic- ture, but'it is only seen by a very few; you may, however, take it for granted, that the general opinion here upon that subject, is such as the circumstances ought to inspire in every honest breast. " Colonial productions are become enormously dear: sugar, from Is. 8d. per lb. English, rose to 5s. it is now 3s. 6d. coffee is about 5s. it was 2s. od. some time ago; cotton 7s. or 8s. per lb. but the prices fall at present. There is a crow to pluck with Austria, and that soon, ifreportsays true." Philadelphia, June 20.— In the Washington Monitor, of Tuesday, 16th June, the editor, who is said to be the special protege of the Adminis- tration, expresses himself in these words;— " All things considced, it would not indeed, be ex- traordinary^ if he (( iJWArmstrong) had left Paris; for it is certain, that the voice of leason and justice cannot be heard, when rapine marches under the au- thority of an imperial mandate, and seizes its prey at the poiptof the bayonet." Have Messrs. Jefferson and Madison discovered that the spirit of our nation will no longer bear the concealment of Armstrong's dispatches, and is this intimation preparatory to a garbled disclosure of - them? A convention has been concluded between the Emperors of Austria and Russia, for the mutual surrender of deserters. French naval officers have been sent to all the ports^ of the Baltic, for the purpose of engaging German ami Polish volunteers for the French navy. A fourth expedition, of considerable force, is talked of, aid volunteers 19 it are expected from the militia and volunteer corps; most of the line regiments will come from Ireland...- - On Monday last one of the keepers of the wild beasts, at Exeter Change, had his hand nearly torn off by a young lion. On Saturday the colossal statue, of William III. by Bacon, was pjrt up in St. Jamcs's- square. Horse Qrtanb, July 20, tSOS.—" The Commander in Chief directs it to be notified, that in consequence of the state of preparation for immediate service in which lite zeho'e army is at this present moment held, his Majesty has been graciously pleased to dispense with the use of the quern, until further ordeis. His Royal Highness desires the commanding officers of the regi- ments will take care that the men's hair is cut close to their necks, in the neatest and most uniform man- ner, and that their heads are kept perfectly clcan, by combing, brushing, and frequently washing them ; for the latter essential purpose, it is his Majesty's pleasure that a small sponge shall hereafter be added to each man's regimental necessaries, " Bv order of his Royal Highness the Commander in Chief, " HARRY . CALVERT, Adjutant- General." Court of King's Bench, July 25.— Carr v. Hood. The plaintiff, who is Sir John Carr, the author of several books of travels, particularly " The Stranger in Ireland, the Stranger in I'ranee, a Northern Summer, and a Tour round the Baltic," brought his action against the defendant, a book- seller in the Poultry, for publishing a libel against him under the title of " My Pocket Book, or Notes for a ryghte merrie and conceytede Tour ' through Ireland, by a Knight Errant." In this work the plaintiffs writings were ridiculed with extraordi- nary wif; by which he had received special dam- age, inasmuch as two booksellers, Sir IL Phillips, and Mr. Leigh, had refused to purchase another work of his, lo be entitled " A Scottish Tour," for which they would have given 600 guineas, had it not been for the effect of this publication of the defendant's. The Attorney- General contended, that the work published by the defendant was a species of fair criticism upon the works of the plaintiff, which were in general compiled of old jokes and inflated common- place reflections upon men and manners, which were set off by hot- pres- sed paper and fine plates. Lord Ellenborotigh de- clared his opinion to the jury, that every man who published a book laid himself beforethe pub- lic, and became a fair subject of criticism. If his bojk were penned in a pompous and empty style, rid cule might fairly be used to strip folly of its sel importance. There would have been no doubt, if Sir John Carr's private character had been de- graded, it would have been a libel. Nothing of tnat kind was imputed to the defendant. Then it was of the highest importance that criticism should be free, for without it there coulel be no improve- ment In taste, in- politics, or in science. Every branch of learning was indebted for its advance- ment to the severe strictures which succeeding writers had passed upon the works of each other; and the only question w'as, whether this author had done more than expose, according to his best judg- ment, what he conceived to be a vitiated style of writing.— Verdict for the defendant. flRIS'rut.

POSTSCRIPT. LONDON, TfirfUSD AY, JULY 23, 1S08. THERE is a very material difference between the accounts received by the Deputies and those received by Government, relative to the bat- tle between General Cuesta and the French, near Vafadolid, ( noticed in the Iff column of our last p. ge.) The account transmitted to Government came from Mr. Hunter, the British Consul at Gijnn, who had received it from Sir ' I ho'nins P\ er. Alter the action on the lAth, at Medina de Hi 3 Seen, the Spaniards were said to have retreated to Benavento, \ vhither the French had not been able to pursue them. Sir Thomas Dyer's letter was dated on the \ 6lh. Rut the account received by the Spanish Deputies is very different. It as- Geueta\ Cvxetta V\ ai been VvAoT'wwn, and that the French force under Bessieres had been de- Tim fovce \ s vau\ Vo We io\ iiit\ a sale retreat only in an almost inaccessible mountain, wYitcYi V. as Wteioiote lot me A \ be rendezvous and the asylum of the Contrrtbandistas. The infor- mation conivrmmeaietl to tY. e Commissioners states, that the van- guard of General Cuesta's army hav- ing overtaken VVie Y tench force much sooner than MILS expected, found it convenient to fall back. " But immediately afterwards Cuesla advanced, am) comp'/ ferf the French to seek safety in flight. Such is the intelligence the Commissioners received tn the vessel which brought the statement of Sir Thomas Dyer. A letter from Gijon too, of the 18th, States, that, according to accounts ju- t received from General ( uesta, he was, with 71,000 men, \ iutsuina, a French force of 1.7.000, under Marshal Bessieres, which tocce he expected to come u\ y witb aud en- . gage at Valencia by the 16ll>. The letter adds, that General Ponti, at the head of a formidable body of patriots, interspersed w ith regular soldiers. Mas in ymsuit of a French a< m\ uvvdet Geueta\ iL'erle, who bad lied from St. Andero. Another statement in this letter is. lYiat. the FvcncU Wins but a small force at Madrid ; the great body hav- ing e,' we out under Bessierev Dutch papers, received to the 24th, contain Paris news to the 19U\ instant. Accounts from Madrid of tiie Sth say, that the French were in IvoutW expectation ot receiving advice ot the suv- iender of Saragossa. as a third grand attack was to be made upon it on the 5th, the arm} of that dis- Irict having been reinforced by 10,000 men from 3* ampeluna on the preceding day. The accounts from Bay onne, in the French pa- • pets, are to the 15th.— It appears that Joseph Bo naparte is advancing to the capital of his new king- dom with a slowness that indicates fearand caution. UP had not advanced farther than Vhtoria, on the 12th, " receiving the homage of the constituted authorities," and, as the French papers add, " that of all the ue/ l disposed inhabitants." The French papers now boast of the ability of Na- poleon to reduce the Spanish nation to immediate subjection ! The French zvere lately assured that all Spain was in a state of perfect tranquillity, and rctidij to receive him with open. arms. Lord Bentinck is entrusted with the political re- lations, and Mr. Dntfthe commercial, between this country and Spain. It is said", that a third expedition is actually or- dered, consisting of 20,500, the flower of the re- serve of our army, with which the Duke of York vill go forth, aud assume the command in chief of the whole of our troops sent to the assistance of Spain and Portugal, as soon as a footing has been made in those countries. Transports, to the amount of 5000 tons, are lo assemble in the Downs, and proceed lo Cork with- out delay, where another embarkation of troops is to take place. A strong battalion is about to be formed from the different divisions of the Royal Marines* for Spain. The expedition was still detained yesterday, at Spitbead,. by contrary winds. An order'of corr ril is exported by Saturday, • which shall abolish the commission that lias so long Jield in suspense three millions of property belong- ing to the Portuguese and Brazilian merchants, viio had it conveyed to this country. By order of council, no licences are to be grant- ed to neutral ships to import French wines or French brandies. This will operate to the advantage of the trade of Portugal and Spain, and quicken the sale of rums. Master Bettv has realized, in a very few years, Biore money than Garri. k did in liis whole life. Yesterdav a cause of crim. con. Gregson ( w ho lately obtained a verdict against his coachman) ver- sus M'Taggart, was decided in favor ol the for- mer The defendant is a broker, and the crimi- nal conversation took place before the affair of the coachman's. Stocks fell yesterdav nearly one per cent. This uras not the result of any political news, but arose entirely from circumstances within the house. Corn- Exchange, July 28.— The arrivals ol" Wheal to- day are few, and the supply on hand, again short; the sales in general are at a small advance in price; Barley and Malt also in short supply, the latter rather dearer; Beans of both sorts like- wise; the supplies of Oats are considerable, partly from Wales, but this trade fully maintained last prices ; in flour little variation.

The new WisUop preaches the anniversary sermon for the benefit of the H o/ ces- let lnfttmaty. The judges are expected in this city on Wednes- da- v evening. The business at the Ctown bar wi\\, we are happy to Hnd, be very light. A cause of consequence to the. spotting world, and of great importance to the landed interest, « ill be tried at the ensuing assizes, in which I he Right Hon. the Earl of Berkeley is plaintiff, and I'etev Clisscld, Esq. defendant, to ascertain a right of free- warren, which the noble Karl conceives extends over nearly the whole ol the lower pail of the county. Mr. Abbot and Serjeant Williams are retained for Lord Berkeley; Messrs. Dauncey, Wigley, and Hughes, for Mr. Clissold. Prince William of Glocester was expecled to dine in Cheltenham yesterday. The Roval Glocester Volunteers meet to- morrow ( not on Monday) for the purpose « > f receiving the signatures ot such of the corps as have not ye expressed their determination upon the proposition for volunteering into the I^ ocal Militia.— The TweTiesbury and Cirencester Iraveagreed ta transfer their services. A few days since, the circular letter relative to the volunteers transferring themselves to local mi- litia, was read in the Exchange to the Royal Bristol Volunteers, by companies, when the whole una- nimously declined doing so, considering the present nature of their services, viz. that of per- forming the garrison and prison duty, whenever they should be called upon, free of every expence to Government, as much more serviceable. A letter lias been transmitted to the War Olfice, ex- pressive of this decision. The return of the officers, non- commissioned officers, and privates of the Loyal Worcester Vo- lunteer Infantry, who are willing to transfer their services lo the local militia, consisting of between four and five hundred, was transmitted to Govern- ment on Monday last. Numbers are still offering their services. The volunteers at II at hers'one, in Warwickshire, have resolved to extend their services lo the assist- ance of the patriots of Spain, if Government shall think proper t<> accept of the offer, and send them off along with the other troops in any expe- dition that may be destined for I hat object." The majority of Ihe first regiment of Hereford- shire volunteers, have enrolled their names for the local militia Their Lieut.- C'olonel, Sytnonds, has communicated his resignation. In an address to the corps on this occasion, he thus explains his motives.— " The outrage which I experienced at Monmouth, has, unfortunately, left me no choice in the conduct 1 am about to pursue.— It is impossible that I can compromise so far with my own feelings, and those of mv family, as to continue iu a regiment, whilst two individuals of it, who have basely and cowardly at- tempted my life, remain undiscovered and unsus- pected." Tiie conference of the methodistsis now sitting in Bristol; about 250 Ministers^ re assembled, and the Rev. Mr. Wood is the president. The pro- gress of the sect, particularly in Wales, is rapid beyond example. Above 50 chapels and meetings have been built and organized in the course of a lew years. The remains of the late Mrs. Miller ( whose death we mentioned in our last) were interred in the fa- mily vault al Bockleton, on Friday, with great fu- neral solemnity : this amiable ladv was in her 24th year, and married only on the 4th ult. Mrs. Mary Lewis, who lately died at Bristol, be- queathed her property in the fallowing manner:— To the Bristol Infirmary ( independently of 2001. left by her husband, to become payable at her decease) 1,0001.3 per cent, consols annuity ; 1,5001. ditto lo the Bristol Dispensary ; 4001. dillo to the minister and churchwardens of St. James's parish, the interest to be annually applied in the distri- bution ol shoes to the poor of that parish; 2001 ditto to the Asylum for poor Orphan Girls; 2001 ditto to the Sunday School of St. James's; 2001. ditto to the Blind Asylum ; and the residue of bet- effects, which is considerable, to th" ministers and churchwardens of St. James's, the interest to be ap- plied to Ii poor widows of that parish not receiv- ing alms. She has also handsomely remembered a servant who lived with her 50 years; and left some legacies lo a few particular friends. By ail advertisement in the Bath paper, in June, 1804, it might have been perceived, that the late Wm. Barton, of Frome- Selwood, Esq. gave by bis will 5,0001. bank- stock, together with the accruing dividends thereon, to his first and second cousins, who should legally prove such relationship within two years from the time of his decease. So many- were the applications, founded and unfounded, that the executors were necessitated to refer the discrimination of the legal from tiie surreptitious claims to the Lord Chancellor; under whose de- cision, we learn, with pleasure, that a satisfactory distribution of the whole ( amounting to more than 11,0001. sterling) was a few days since made by the executors, lo seventeen families, the legality of whose claims was established in the Court of Chancery. On Sunday a party of young men took a boat to sail into Kingroad, and attempting to land at Portisbead, they ran against the fishing- stakes with such violence as to perforate the bottom of the boat. Two of them, who could swim, leaped into the water, and endeavoured tosave themselves, but, after a bard struggle, one of them sunk, and was drowned ; the other contrived to lay hold of some fishing- tackle, and, by means of ( he nets, kept his head above water, till lie was taken up by a boat, nearly exhausted. The three which re- mained clung to the boat till they were fortunately extricated. Resofutions have been enteredinl and city magistrates of Worcester, their determination to put the lawssfl against the profanation of the sabbat/ i. Another sweepstakes has ljeen added, for at Worcester races, on Wednesday Particular pains have been taken to' rendiT course in good condition ; and we hear the con pany will be numerous, ami the sport excellent. At Ludlow races, on Thursdav se'uio-. Jit, Lord Stamford's St. Domingo walked over the course for the sweepstakes; andtbe 501. plate was won by Mr. Goulhourn's Borneo, beating three others. On Friday the hunters' s, VjVe. s was won bv Mr. Benson's Fisherman, heating Mr. Adams's hi. Ii. and the 501. plate was won by Mr. Vinson's Ceci- lia, beating Mr. Goulhouro's White/ lose— which was very we\\ contested. The first Somerset regiment of militia, tinder the command of Lieiii.- Col. SirC.

On the following day, the body, calling themselves the Junta, met for the last time, aud it was arranged, that King Joseph, with all the members of the Junta, were to leave Bayonne on their way to Spain. The route of King Joseph is marked out with great precision, ami the 27th inst. is fixed for his entrance into Madrid. Why so much time is taken for so short a journey, the'situation of the country will, per- haps, best explain. Napoleon accompanied his brother Joseph to Audaye; the latter was received atlrun by a body of Italian troops, who escorted him to St. Sebasti- an's. Joseph was accompanied by his Minister Ur- quijo, and Admiral Masseredo, who is appointed Minister of Marine. A list of Ministers and great Officers of State is given in the French papers, comprising names of the first respectability in Spain, but, we trust, they were appointed without their consent. The different columns of French trcops at Bilboa, Burgos, Pampeluna, and Yittoria, were stated to exceed 50,000 men. Letters from Cadiz ofHhe 8th inst. slate thai the Supreme Junta of Seville were occupied in delibe- rating on the propriety of declaring the son ofthe Kin? of Naples ( nephew to King Charles the IVth), Regent of Spain during the absence of Ferdinand the Vllth. Their object is said to be, to give more eclat to their proceedings. We do not see the ne- cessity of such a measure. The Madrid Gazette continues to defeat the patriots— upon paper. It has announced officially that Seville, Keres, and several other strong places, have been taken by Dupont, who, according to the last accounts received from him, was bombard- ing; Cadiz, in conjunction vfith the trench squa- dron ! !— Well done, Madrid Gazette ! !

The American Captain stales, thai the most gloomy si- lence prevailed during the ceremony. From St. Sebastian's he proceeded to Tolosa, and thence by Mondragon to Vittoria, where he was again pro- claimed on the \ 0th, and intended to Ivave \ wose- cuted bis route to Burgos; advices from Marshal Ressietgs; bad however " uvduced him to delay bis departure, anil he remained at Vittoria on the I lib. " Mafshsd fie. ssieres had on the V2th assembled a body of about 18,000 men, including some Po- lish teguments, avid was stationed between BWboa and Marquina. The Asturian army amounted to • H, iroo men, including the division of Gen. VovtV'i, and had at the above date entered Castile, for the purpose of giving battle to Uwoitmy." In speaking of the measures which have been pursued by France towards Spain, Cobbett intro- duces the lolloping passage:— " Napoleon, for once, outwitted himself. He. should hare suffered no cessation ofthe despotism. The new master should have come in, before the old one quit- ted the house. There should have been not a moment's • suspension of the use of the rod. When a German bird- catcher sells you one of the poor little creatures it / loin he has enslaved, he takes special care to put him out of his hand safely into yours j but, King CBarles, as if he had meant to defraud his " intimate friend," Napoleon, let the bird fly, and left his inti- mate friend to catch him and tame him again. The bird, delighted with the enjoyment of his native free- dom, has hitherto withstood all the temptations of the decoy at Bayonne, though the old bird- catcher has lent it his assistance; and Napoleon, in a rage, has sent out his marksmen to destroy what he fears he cannot possess." To the Editor of the Glocester Herald. SIR,— By inserting the following extract from Semple's Tour through Spain and Italy, made in the year 1805, you will much oblige, AMATOR LIBERTATIS. * EXTRACT.— VOL. 1st.— P. 220. " In ( lie present political state of Europe, and at all times, the propriety of England cultivating a close and friendly intercourse witli Spain is so apparent, that we cannot but feel surprised it should have been so long neglected. On enquiry we find the causes of this to be various. Ancient wars; alliances between the two former monarchies of France and Spain; and the interests of the latter comitrv and of England badly understood by both. — Yet" l affirm that such are the dispositions of the Spaniards towards the English, that with a little care on the part of the Government, the two coun- tries might become indissolubly united. It is here that we ought to look for a great balance to the power of France in the west. It is in this country, perhaps, unfavourable as appearances may now be, that the freedom of Europe is destined to commence. 1 he Highlanders of Britain may still rouse to arms in a kindred language, their Celtic brethren in Ihe mountains of Leon, Biscay, and Gallicia ; and even extend their enthusiasm over the plains to the centre of the country, and the mountains of Ar- ragon and Guadarama. But the great events likely soon to take place in this country, mock the vain'spirit of prophecy. I bid adieu to Spain, and should quit with regret its lofty mountains, its al- most boundless plains, its delightful climate, and the many monuments of its departed glories: but I have been always used to breathe the air of free- dom, and around me I see nothing but slavery, stifled indignation, and misery. Its happy natu- ral situation is over- balanced by political errors, and the blindness of despotic power: and whilst we regret that so fine a country should be almost abandoned to nature, we cannot but feel some small portion of contempt for the inhabitants who permit it ."— End of vol. 1 st. Gottenburgli, July 18.— The conquest of Norway by this country seems to be given up for the pre- sent ; the Swedish army has returned within its own borders, and all military operations have ceased ; the two armies remain upon the frontiers. We have nothing official from Finland, but report con- tinues to say, there has been an affair near Wasa, in which the Swedes have suffered considerably. The last packet from America brought over to this country the celebrated Aaron Burr. This gen tleman was under bail of 10,000 dollars to remain in America, and to stand his trial for a misdemea- nour, at Kentucky. That bail is, we understand, by his emigration, liable to be forfeited.— Upon Ins departure from America, his baggage was sent on board the packet at New York under a fictitious name, and after the packet had come out of San- dy hook, lie was by some preconcerted arrangement taken on board from a boat, which conveyed him from the shore. The object of this gentleman's voyage to England is generally understood to be in consequence of an arrangement with our Admi- nistration, to concert measures with General Mi- randa, for another attack upon South America The insurrection in Spain, however, having totally subverted this project, Aaron Burr is not likely to be called into action.— Sun. The following communication, which was on Friday received at Lloyd's, seems to sustain the re- port that Bonaparte is strongly disposed to conci- liate the Americans:— MR. JOHN CHESTER, LONDON. Alicante, ilth of June, 1808. SIR,— 11 Inclosed you have a letter from Captain Charles Bradford, of the ship Ann, Alexandria. He will advise you that the Consul of the United States of America has succeeded in obtaining an order both from the French and die Spanish Government of this country to liberate all the American vessels detained by either in virtue of the Milan decree of the 17th Dec. 1807, and accordingly Capt. Bradford is sailed for Villeneuve, to take in his cargo for your place. " He carries a copy of his protest, and every other paper, in order that you may settle with the under- writers, for the damages on his detention. ROBERT MONTGOMERY and Co."

Being lately dunned for the sum which was due, the debtor gravely- replied— " Go back and tell Mr. Madison, if he will take off the embargo, I'll pay him for his wheat." THE AMERICAN CRIES, Being an Acrostic formed on the Burden of a celebrated Pro- ject called the Embargo : Embargo ! a hoy ! all hands pipe Embargo !

On J^ week, Sir Arthur Wellesley's expedition, ^ 000 men, were within two days' sail of Lis- lt was expected to be reinforced with part if General Moore's army. Sir Charles Cotton lias ten sail of the line off the Rock of Lisbon. Russia is said to have finally determined to with- draw her army from Finland. Letters state, in very positive terms, that a peace has been concluded between the Courts of St. Petersburg!! and the Porte. Ure trust that this is the harbinger of a pacific arrangement between Russia aud Sweden. Ill consequence of the opening of the different ports, and the probabilities of the trade of Russia again becoming free to England, a fall of twelve per cent, has already taken place on hemp; and a manufactory has commenced at Driffield, in ihe East Riding of Yorkshire, for using long wool for the purposes of cordage, which is report- ed as answering extrcmeW well. Letters from Cadiz state, that the Emperor of Morocco has declared war against France, in con- science of Bonaparte having persisted in requir- ing him to sYvut his potts against English ships. Several regiments of volunteers have offered to extend theif services to any part of Spain. The 1st brigade of Guards, now at Deal, which lately returned from Sicily, have likewise petitioned to be sent to assist tlie Spaniards; and in consequence, the order for the 2d brigade of Guards to bein readiness for immediate embarkation, has been countermanded. Transports ate preparing for the reception of this distinguished corps, and it is expected it will be embarked in time to sail wilh the troops now collecting at Portsmouth. The Gendurmrie sedentaire have been marched from Paris to Spain, a measure which has not been adopted in the whole course of the revolution. But though this order has been given, we doubt whe- ther Bonaparte will venture to carry it into execu- tion. He has more than once called out the Na- tional Guard, but lie has never left France to their protection. This is, iu our minds, the most fa- vourable circumstance for Spain, that he dares not to trust the internal defence of France to its own population. At no time, when lie has been forced to send his regular forces out of France, has he trusted arms in the hands of the people. His con- fidence has rested entirely on the eclat of his vic- tories. And lie is noiv, as we believe, pursuing the same course. Marshal Ney is about to enter, or probably before this time has entered Catalonia with a great force— and with his usual alacrity he has been collecting his armies in silence, without a moment's delav as to the choice of commanders, and forcing ( hem from every direction towards the passes of the Pyrenees. Paris papers contain a supplement fo the constitutional code of the kingdom of Naples. Il has nothing remarkable in it, being entirely in the spirit of that system, to which all the Governments under the controul of France must conform. An instance has lately been discovered of the vindictive spleen and cruel caution of Bonaparte. It will be recollected, that in his unnatural attempt at the display of clemency towards his rival Mo- reau, he refrained from confiscating his property, and left it at the disposal of the General's lady. Not long since, however, Moreau's estate was sold; a part of the proceeds paid over to one of his bit'erest enemies, a favourite General of the Corsican's; and the remainder placed in the French fmids, of which he is allowed indeed ihe interest, but not the power of withdrawing the capital. The tyrant thus re- taining the means of laving his rapacious hands on the last shilling of his ii'.- fated antagonist. Marshal Brune, we understand, has been sent to the T emple. His conduct towards the King of Sweden, and in Pomfania, is said to have dis- pleased Bonaparte, who recalled, and ordered him into confinement. It is confidently repr rtetl that the object of the King of Sweden's visit fo Finland, was to hold a personal conference with the Emperor of Russia, wlfo was expected to meet him there. Capt. Skinner, of the Tickler, who was killed in a late contest with the Danish gun- boats, was buried by the Danes, with military honours.. A sum of money was likewise given to his widow, by the king, to bear her expences to England. The Princess of Wales has made great progress in the art of modelling. Her Royal Highness has lately finished busts of the Duke of Brunswick and herself, and presented several copies to her par- ticular friends. A nobleman of great respectability, who is far from being habitually addicted to the gamingtable, has been lateN drawn in to play for such sums, that it has been necessary for him to break up his esta- blishment in a county where he held an honour- able office, and to retire, at an age not suitable to such a removal, to a residence in a distant country. We are told, iu a Paris paper, of two Frenchmen, who ascended each in a balloon to fight a duel, when one of them, at the height of 900 yards, fired and penetrated his adversary's balloon, who, with his second, in consequenteof the rapid descent, were dashed to pieces on the top of a house. We are likewise told of a smith, who lately undertook, for a wager of one guinea, ( the loser to pay for the beer) to drink a butt of porter, of 108 gallons, in six days, being at the rate of eighteen gallons per day ; and, extraordinary to say, he per- formed the disgusting feat with apparent ease. An attempt is now making to convert whalebone into sheep netting, in consequence of the rise- on the latter article, and the great depreciation of whale- bone, which is in so little request as scarcely to be saleable at Hull. A manufacture has already been established of hats for men, which are nearly as light, and much more durable than straw. Last week a boy, who was at work upon a rick in the neighbourhood of Worcester, suddenly dropped down, and soon after expired ; little doubt is entertained that his death wascausedby the heat: two women who were hay- making near Peishore, likewise dropped down, overcome by heat, but soon after recovered : a woman died on Thursday, in a field near Stratford, from a similar cause; and we have heard of many more such accidents in various parts of the kingdom. The following accident happened on Friday at Banwell:— A cart- horse, harnessed, took fright, and galloped off; in his progress he overtook a man named James Chipper, when a part of the harness tightly encircled his waist, and the poor fellow was dragged nearly a mile, and literally dashed to pieces. In consequence of the many fatal accidents which occur at this season of the year from bathing, we are induced to insert, briefly, the cautions of the Royal Humane Society in cases of suspended ani- mation :— Prevention of Death.— Cautions:— 1. Never to be held up by the feet.— 2. Not to be rolled on casks, or other rough usage.— 3. Avoid the use of salt in all cases of apparent death. Restoration of Life.— What thou doest, do quickly.—. THE DROWNED:— 1. Convey carefully the body, with the head raised, to the nearest convenient house.— 2. Strip and dry the body, clean the mouth and nostrils. — 3. Lay the body on a blanket or bed, and to be ex- posed to the sun in summer.— 4. The Society's process is to be used for two hours. It is an absurdity to sup- pose persons irrecoverable, because vitality does not soon return.— 5. Breeding only to be used on the at- tgadaace of a nodical practitioner. Saturday the remains of the Riglit Hon. Laura Pulteney, Countess of Bath, were removed, in great funeral pomp, from Bath- house to West- minster Abbey, where they were interred in the cloister of that cathedral, near tiie remains of Sir William Pulteney. The will of the lafe Countess of Bath has at lenght been found. She leaves to Sir James Pulteney the income, for his life, of, ill her personal property, amounting to near six hundred thousand pounds. After his decease this immense property is bequeathed to her cousin, who was the wife of the Kev. Mr. Marfcham, son ( o the late Archbishop of York. That lady was divorced, some years ago, from her husband. She is fhe daughter of Sir Richard Sutton, and has lived, during several years, principally under Lady Bath's protection. The fortune is to descend to her children by Mr. Markham. Sir John Johnson, the Earl of Darling- ton, and Sir liichard Sutton, all inherit very con- siderable estates. A dispute has taken place between the minister and churchwardens of the parish church of St. Alban, Wood- street, respecting the right of burial in certain parls of the church. The minister claims the whole interior. The churchwardens insist that only the communion and chanceX belong to him. The consequence was, that when the re- wiainsof Mr. Mountain, the late proprietor of the Saracen's Head Inn, where taken inside the church foe the purpose ot buviai, an understanding having been previously entered into with the church- wardens for that purpose, the minister refused to officiate, and the corpse was kept till another tier- gyman could be sent for to perform the funeral service. ' I'his occupied the space of half an hour, when the Rev. Mr. Claike, one of the Minor Canons of St. Paul's, committed the body to its lad abode. This misunderstanding isYikely to become a matter of legal investigation. The Courts of Law have lately held forth a doc- trine, that juries in cases of crim. con. are not ft. give damages as a punishment on the aggressor, hut as a compensation to the injured party. If this maxim is to be established, some progressive scale of the value of female chastity, from the wife of a Duke down to the wife of a cobler, should be regulated, and made public, in order to remove certain old- fashioned impressions which lead mankind to con- sider the injury to be as great in one rank of soci- ety as in another:— 10,0001. have been awarded for the loss of a countess, but we never heard ofthe same price being put upon the wife of a cobler; yet it requires some ingenuity to make a distinction between the wrongs sustained in the one case and in the other. Modern Definition of Honour.— In a late crim. con. cause, Lord Uorfogdon, v. Sir Arthur Paget, fhe Counsel for his Lordship complained that his client had been libelled in the daily papers, with the obvious intention of depreciating his character in the minds of thejury. The learned Counsel for the defendant, in reply, disclaimed all knowledge of any such libels, and felt assured that the jury would not believe that a man of such high rank, and of such fine feelings and nice sense of honour, as Sir Arthur Paget, could be capable either of writing or of circulating them. Thus, it seems that a man may seduce the wife of another, and still be considered as possessing fine feelings and a nice sense of honour. Grapes.— In the second part of the Transactions of the Horticultural Society, there is " An account of a method of hastening the maturation of grapes," by John Williams, Esq. At the end of July and beginning of Asgust, says the writer, I took annu- lar excisions of bark from the trunks of several of my vines, and, that the exposed alburnum might be again covered with new bark, by the end of autumn, the removed circles were made rather more than a quarter of an inch in width. Two vines of the white Frontiniac, in similar states of growth, being trained near to each other on a south wall, were selected for trial; one of these was ex- perimented 011 ( if I may use the term) the other was left in its natural'tale, ( 0 form a standard of comparison. When the circle of bark had been removed about a fortnight, the berries on the ex- perimented tree began evidently to swell faster than those on the other, and by the beginning of September shewed indications of approaching ripe- ness, while the fruit of the unexperimented tree continued green and small. I11 the hesitining of October, the fruit on the tree that had the bark rem- iyed from it was quite ripe, the other only just began to show a disposition to ripen, for the bunches were shortly after destroyed by the autumnal frost, fn every case in which circles of bark were removed, I invariably found that the fruit not only ripened earlier, but the berries were larger than usual, and more highly flavoured. Mr. Williams recommends that where the trunk of the tree is large, the incision should be made oh the smaller branches, and says it is necessary that not only every part of the outer, but also of fhe inner bark, should be removed, in order that the experiment should succeed, and that all shoots which come out from the root of the vine, or from the front of the trunk below the incision, must be removed as often as they appear, unless bearing wood is wanted to fill up the lower part of the wall, in which case one or two shoots may be left. EXECUTION OF JAMES GILCHRIST, FOR THE MURDER OF HIS WIFE. This solemn and awful scenetook place, on Wed- nesday, on the platform erected in front of the Tolbooth, at Glasgow. The unfortunate man died, as he had lived, solemnly declaring his innocence of the crime for which he was to suffer. Soon af- ter one o'clock, he was attended in his room by the Rev. Mr. M'Lean, of Gorbals; Mr. Brodie, of Dove- hill; and Mr. M'Donald, of Edinburgh, They conversed with him for some time, in the course of which lie repeated his declaration of in- nocence, in the strongest terms. Taking up one of the books, lying beside him on the bench, on which he sat, and holding it before Mr. M'Lean, he said " I am as innocent of the crime, for which I am to suffer, as that book is ;" then rising from his seat, and going to the window of the room, he poured out some beer or porter from a bottle into a tumbler, and turning round before he drunk it, he said " I never did any injury in my life to any man." After part of a psalm was sung, James asked for a glass of winefrom Mr. Gardner. When the first prayer was finished, he requested the at- tention of all present, and in a clear, audible voice, " called the Lord Provost, and all who heard him, to witness at the tribunal of God, that he was in- nocent ofthe crime for which he was to suffer." After the second prayer, the Lord Provost told him, he might still have a little time longet. He replied, " I am ignorant of the rules of this place — lam ready— I go as a sheep to the slaughter." The Lord Provost then suggested, that Mr. M' Donald might pray with him.— James expressed his satisfaction.— The third prayer being over, Mr. M'Lean requested James would excuse him from going tothescaffold, to which hereadily consented. Before leaving the hall, he repeatedly declared his innocence. His last words to the Lord Provost were, " My Lord, you are parting with an inno- cent man." He appeared 011 the scaffold at a quar- ter after three precisely, decently dressed in black. There he acted just as he had done in the hall, call- ing attention, and declaring his innocence almost in the same words. After singing two portions of the 51st and 102d psalms, both selected by him- self, with the most astonishing firmness and compo- sure he mounted the platform, and at twenty ini- ttutegpast three, was launched into eternity. Lord Louth was married, on Thursday se'nnight, at Dunsanv castle, to the eldest daughter of Lord Dunsaiiy." The following extract is taken from the life of Richard Co, bet, Bishop of Norfolk, prefixed to his poems, lately republished by OctaviusGilchrist. In 1619, Samuel Harsnet licensed the Walloon congregation to use, during his pleasure, the Bishop's chapel. This indulgence was continued during the government of his successor, Francis White. But Laud would be content with nothing short of conformity ; Corbet, therefore, prepared to dislodge tliem by the following characteristic letier:— " To the Minister and Elders ofthe French Church, in Norvviehe, tliese : Snlntem in Christo. " Yoa hareprotnisedme from time to time, to restore my stolen bell, and to glaze my lettiee windows. Af- ter three yeeres consultation ( besydes other pollution) \ see nothing mended.
