I Paper atiJ Print, 2$ rf. Monday's and Tuesday's Posts. INTERESTING ARTICLE from the DUTCH JOURNALS. TRIESTE, Novemlcr 3. IN the Adriatic there is at present an English Squadron, commanded, as is reported, by Admiral Collingwood ; the frigates belonging to it cruize on the coasts of lstria and Dalmatia. Within these 14 days the English have sent three flags of truce to the Russian Admiral's ship in our port, which each time gave occasion for holding a Council of War, at which the Russian Consul attended. It is said the English Admiral has demanded that the four Russian ships and two frigates which are in our port be unrigged, disarmed, and their cannon carried onshore, until six months after peace. It appears that the Russian Admiral is not inclined to comply with this de- mand. He has brought up his fleet nearer to the walls, and a courier has been dispatched to the Russian Ambassa- dor at Vienna. LONDON, MONDAY; DECEMBER Is. Last night Dutch Papers to the 25th ult. reached town: they contain Paris news to the 20th. Bonaparte has at length condescended to notice the operations of his armies, in regular Bulletins, and he boasts as much of the advantages which he has obtained over the contemptible Rebel Force in Spain ( to use his own language', as he did for the victories of Austerlitz, Auerstadt, or l iiedland.— The first of these Bulletins is dated the 9th ult. at Vittorla. It contains a detail of the operations of the armies down to the 7th, in which the Flench an;, of course, represented as being uniformly successful. The loss of the Spaniards is represented at between three and four thousand killed and wounded. The Duke of Dantzic ( Marshal Davoust) is slightly censured fortius attack; regret is expressed for its hiving taken place, though its termination was so brilliant, the Spaniards being in such a situation that they must otherwise have beeen totally destroyed. The second Bulletin Is dated tne 12th, at Burgos, and gives an account of the attack upon the part of the army of pstremadur* which occupied Burgos. The Spaniards, it is said, were defeated with the loss ot 3000 rhen killed and 3000 prisoners. This certainly is a most singular circum- stance, for the Count de Belveder, whocommanded the Spaniards upou that occasion, had not above 5700 men, and he retreateS in good order, with a considerable part of bis force. Further Dutch Papers to the 27 th ult. reached town this morning. They contain the third and fourth Bulletins of the French army in Spain. They are both dated from Burgos, the former the 13th ami the latter the 15th ult. They seem to have been published, not for the purpose of announcing victories, but as the vehicles of coarse abuse of a nation Which has taken up arms to resist the infamous aggressions of France. It is curious to observe the incon- sistency which Bonaparte manifests in these Bulletins. At one time he affects to treat the Spaniards with the utmost contempt. They are urtarmed, undisciplined, cowardly, ignorant, and dare not even face the French iii the field. And yet against such a contemptible foe, he has thought it necessary, if we are to rely upon his own accounts, to make greater military preparations than he did when he invaded Austria and Prussia, or when he advanced to the frontiers of Ru- sia. His present animosity seems principally di- rected against the Clergy of Spain, to whose exertions he attributes the spirit which at present pervades the people, and in order to give his abuse the more weight, be puts it into the mouths of the peasants. The third Bulletin says, In the prisons of Burgos are a great number of Monks, who were stoned by the peasantry.—" Wretches 1" said they to them, ' it is pan that have plunged us into this gulph of misery-; perhaps we shall never again behold our iMiappy udves and our peer children. TCretches ! a righteous God will punish you in Hell for all the calamities brought on our families and oar Country." The fourth Bulletin is principally devoted to the abuse of the English, and of Count Florid'a Blanea, President of the Supreme Junta of Spain, whom it describes as the blind partisan of England. After stating, " We entered Palencia and Val- ladolitl, and advanced even six miles further, and found no Englishmen," it petulantly adds, " in the meantime, it appears certain, that a division of their troops has disem- barked at Coruniia, and that another division, at the be- ginning of this month, entered Badajos. The day we fall in with them will be a< day of festivity to the French army. May they moisten with their blood that Continent which they have < leso! ated by their intrigues, their monopoly, aud their horrible selfishiress 1 May they, instead of 20,000, be 80 or 100,000 strong; that tbe English mothers may learn v hat the calamities of war are, and that the English Government may not always continue to sport with the lives arid Wood of tbe people 011 the Continent."— Every Englishman will join in the wish, that we had an aruiy ot 100,000 men eoiicimtrated > « Spain to meet the French; Ponaparte's march to that point would be rather cautious. The Bulletins prognosticate great events to be near at hand; and things were certainly in a situation in Which important events could not fail soon to take place. We are rather surprised at the ignorance which tbe Bulletins discover respecting the situation or advance of the English. This, however, is, perhaps, more affected than real. The King of Prussia has been obliged to deliver to tbe French his famous service of gold; it was conveyed to Ber- lin tinder an escort of General Blueher's hussars, called the " Death's Heads." A serious affray took place between these hussars and some French troops, who had insulted them, and several lives were lost before order was restored. The King of Prussia, by an ordinance dated the 20th of October, has prohibited all intercourse with Spain and Portugal, and ordered ships arriving from those countries, to be seized and confiscated. MARK- LANE, Monday, Dec. 5. This morning there was again a very large arrival of Wheat from Essex, and Kent, but not much of any other species or from any othelr district. The mealing trade for Wheat had by no means a continuance of that eagerness on the part of the buyers which we found on Friday", but the stands Were at lehgth cleared at a currency of about - 2s. per quarter dearer than on Monday preceding : Oats have also advanced in equal proportion. New Tick Beans are Is. pet qr. cheaper, and Barley nearly as much, except for the finest maltingquality ; the inferior Sorts of both being very dull in sale. Coriander and Carraway Seed are dearer again, as per particulais beneath, whereto we refer Wheat 6ts. to 92s.— Rye 5Cs. to 60s.— White Peas9lis. to 138s.

[ 503 This morning, at eight o'clock, a Flag of Truce arrived at Dover from Boulogne, with a Russian and French Messenger on board. The dispatches of which they were the bearers, were brought to town yesterday evening, and delivered to Mr. Canning. They probably contained the Answer of the French and Russian Ministers for Foreign Affairs to the Reply sent from this country some time ago, to the Overtures at Erfurth- J but their contents have not trauspired. Sir E. Pellew had, at the date of the last accounts ifrom Bengal, dispatched from thence three frigates on a secret expedition to the Eastward. The American ship Margaret, with a cargo of 1M, W) 0lbs. of coffee, and 140,000/ 6*. of sugar, detained by a Danish privateer, has been condemned at Copenhagen, and sold for the benefit of tbe captors. Mr. Carlisle, of Soho- square, was on Saturday elected Professor of Anatomy to the Royal Academy, iu the room of the late Mr. Sheldon. Fir Timber is risen to 19/. per ton, in consequence of tbe destruction of Covent- GAI den Theatre, the demand for it, for the rt- ereetion of that structure, being so sudden, and extensive, and tlie English market having 110 other but a scanty supply from Sweden: more than 100 vessels, however, sailed from Halifax last month, in order to freight home with timber. The use of Steam is daily extended. It is now used in warming some extensive manufactories in aud about the metropolis: that of a celebrated upholder, in Bond- street, wherein twelve coal fires produced an imperfect heat, and the buildings and whole neighbourhood were in constant danger and terror of a conflagration, is now effectually and safely warmed by one small boiler of steam, which is • onveyed by numerous pipes through the extensive work- shops and ware- rooms. It is also so contrived, that tbe workmen heat their glue hy the same pipes. All the world allow that " Fortune is blind."— Hew then can she stumble on us unless we throw ourselves in her way ? Many an individual may largely profit by this hint, through the medium o{ the great Lottery Scheme, that is now rapidly hastening to its important issue— a Scheme no less distinguished f1) r n0Velty of construction thai! for its supreme opulence in point. of capita!

To Proprietors of Water Wheels it may be observed, with great justice, that many of them daily experience incalculable loss and inconvenience from the ill construction of their wheels. In most instances all water wheels ars made of the same diameter and width, without the least attention being paid to the quantity of wafer or height <* the fall, by whi^ fr their power is diminished or increased; as the altitude and quantity of water vary, so in proportion should the water wheel, " or the water can never be applied to its greatest advan- tage. That the altitude ought to regulate the diameter, and the quantity of water the width of the wheel, is known to every experienced practical mechanic; therefore the prevailing opinion that bucket wheels on low falls cannot revolve in flocias so long as ladle wheels, is decidedly erroneous. This objection to bucket wheels can only arise from the ignorance of the mechanic in giving an improper positition to the risers, thereby preventing the admission of air. P. and S. have no hestaition in declaring, that a well- constructed bucket wheel recflving water at the centre, and sheeted round with stone, will perform three parts of its work, whilst a ladle wheel, in the same situation, will not revolve on its axis.

LONDON, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 7. Yesterday morning the Russian and Ftench Messen- gers, who arrivt din a flag of truce, were permitted to land at Dover, from whence they immediately set off for London, where they arrived last night, and proceeded to Mr. Can- ning's house, in Bruton- str. ect, and having delivered their dispatch s, they were placed under the care of one of his Maj « tv'- s Me sengers. A Cabinet Council was held this moriiin", ' to take the dispatches into consideration, but nothing i nspecting them lias transpired, Letters from Princc Edward's Island, dated the 1st of November, state, that Sir George Prevost was, on the - 25th of October, waiting at, Halifax the arrival of the 4; Kli regiment, from Canada, to sail from thence with the secret expedition ; and that Major- General Martin Hunter returns Jroiu N W Brunswick, to take the command in Sir George Trevost's absence. The expedition is supposed to be des- tined against Martinique. A letter from Rio de Janeiro, of the Gth of Oetobcr, states that the market there was quite overstocked with British manufactures, very few of which would sell for saving prices. On Sunday night an express was sent off by the Duke of York, to the Officers commanding the fir- t bat- talions of the 2d and 3d Regiments of Foot Guards, Stationed at Chatham, to hold themselves in readiness for foreign service. The 2il battalions of the same regiments, doing duty in London, received similar orders yesterday. About 30 or 40 of the leading Mercantile Gentle- men assembled yesterday at the Mansion- house, among whom were, the Lord Mayor, the Barings, Mr. Mellish, Member for Middlesex ; Beeston Long, Mr. Angerstein, Mr. Parry, tbe Chairman of the East India House; Messrs. Goldstnid", Roweroft, Inglis, Bainbridge, & c. & c. when it was determined that a General Meeting should be called for the purpose of receiving subscriptions in support of the S'paiii- h patriots. A Court- martial was lately instituted, by desire of Capt. J. G. R; gby, of the East London Militia, for the trial of Quarter- master Burling, of the same regiment, on four charges preferred by the Captain. The proceedings have terminated i i the acquittal of the Quarter- ma Her, and the dismissal of Capt. Rigby from the regiment, by command of his Majesty. EXTRAORDINARY DINNER,— At Constantinople, on the 10th of October, tht? Grand Vizier gave a splendid dinner to about 30,000 person-, in the great plain of Kaitliana. All the neighbouring hills were filled with spectators, ad- miring this gr,- at scene, which the Grand Slgnor honoured with his own presence. Unveiled Ladie\ were not allowed to fee present. It wa, given oil account of the introduction of the corps of Seimetis, who replace the Janizaries. IHY. MAKKET THEATRE.— The Covent- Garden Company removed on Monday night from the Opera- House to the little Theatre, on the opposite side of the Haymarket ; where, after the play of the Mountaineers, a neiv after- piece, called A School fbr Authors, was pel formed. The story of the piece turns on the rage which Mr, Diaper a wealthy old citizen, has for the Muses. He writes the tragedy of Gunpowder Treason, and having insured its appearance ' at one of . the Theatres, though tremulously apprehensive of its failure, he intreats Mr. Cleveland, a • v nun J- gentleman of known literary talents, to father it. This " piece is nissed off the stage; and Cleveland having a - ked the hand of Diaper's niece Jane, as a recotnpence for tbe disgrace, but which was refused by the Citizen merely because he bat! resolved that his niece should marry no one bur a . Teat author, Cleveland makes good his claim to the Ladv on this ground, a Comedy which he had actually written having been brought out ( at the other Theatre) on the same night as the condemned Tragedy, and most favourably received.' Wormwood, a snarling critic, had been the l ival of Cleveland, and understanding the Tragedy to have been written by him, be had been extremely active in hissing- it; he afterwards boasts of this to Diaper, and bestows the coarsest abuse on the unfortunate Tragedy. Diaper, ' forgetting his own. misfortune, -. joyfully gives his niece to Cleveland, and the piece ends with the disgrace of Wormwood, antl the union of the two lovers. This per- foniiSnce U attributed to the late Mr. Tob'm, author of the Honey Moon, and gives additional reason to regret the loss of'so pnniiium- a dramatic writer. Though but an after, piece,' it has high, claim- to comic merit, and displays more dramatic anility than halt. a score of the melo- dramas which are n , w made to, occupy, tbe great portion of our evening'! entertainmentthe characters are drawn. from • Nature! the dialogue is sprightly and witty, and the inci- dents , muling: it has the advantage too of being' per- formed where it can b heard; and the true lovers of plays may now find a high treat iu the School for Authors, at the little Theatre. It was received with every mark of anprobat'oi). Fashionable RUMOURS.— It is intimated in the prinst devoted to the records of Fashion, that the bridal garments are making, in which Mrs. Siddons is to appear in the character u[ an English Baroness, for her own exclusive benefit; and that the fasbumating Miss Smith, late of C vent- Garden Theatre, is about to give her hand to Mr. P over, a gentleman of great fortune in the county of Kil- k'- mv, distinguished for his ta- te for dramatic entertain- m ts. ' h" e prints have circulated three other report-, the first « vhich relates to a transaction sufficiently scandalous. It i 5 follows :—'" An indictment for bigamy is preparing a ;. i 1 t the Heir Apparent to a Scotch Earldom, for having li ly married a second wife in England; a Miss G a iei tmg that she is his only lawful wife, having been " married to him some years since in Scotland, accenting to t ie usual rites of the Scottish Church. This is a case that excites considerable interest iu the fa . liiunable world, as the conjugal claim of Miss G M zealously maintained bv the House of G , and all the clans of distinction coil- Hie d with it; whilst that of the wi/ e in possession is as sr. r luou lv supported by several branches of the English No lesse "— M. Herald. T ie other articles to which we have alluded adduce char es of a more infamous nature:— It is stated that a High. Honourable Personage, suspecting that all his wife's engagements were not regulated by strict decorum, e upliryecj confidential agents to trace the place aud motive of li - r S'cret vi its, the ICey to which was discovered at a re built h one of accommodation in Clundos- street, where s't • was found with her bu- b mil's valet; but an aukward d nauement was produced by another of. his agents, ac- companied bv some legal terriers, who burst into an apart- ment in the'- ame hotel, where he was himself discovered titt- c. tile with the titled mother of his wife ! • The last article we shall notice, in tin: black catalogue, is a statement that " Tne wretched son of an English Mar- quis has aVnconded, whose I adv has instituted chatges against him, similar to those which the Countess of Castle- iuven exhibited aeaitut her husband, Lord Audley, whose brutal atrocities : omed him to an ignominious death in lg' 81. A specs; wa" ant- has been issti" d for apprehending- this Lord, whose inf inites have long rendered him a dis- grace to human nature!"— Herald. PEE, 1| » .— Yesterday the Lord Mayor ordered the price of bead to be reduced an ai- ira and a half, or 84. in a pick la,- if, making ( ha pries of the quartern loaf, wheatcu- Ma. how- hold \ t\ df. i LAW.— Ye- terday was tried, in the Court of King's Bench, all action brought by Ciyit. Chambers ( son of the late Sir William Chambers) against Mr. Jones, tbe Marshal of the King's JBench prison, for the sum of 2,120/. being the amount of the damages and costs awarded ta Capt. Chambers, oil an action against the celebrated Capt. Caul- field, lor the seduction of Mrs. Chambers, for which sum Capt. Caulfield had been ill the custody of the defendant, who, it was alledged, had rendered himself liable to pay- ment by suffering his prisoner to escape. It was proved that the Marshal had allowed Capt. C. the privilege of the Rules, within which, at No. 15, Melina- place, he had a lodging ; but thi3 was kept only for a blind ; be usually resided with Mrs. Chambers, at Hampton Court; he was in a decline, and therefore bad the benefit of good air, and the most tender attentions from Mrs. Chambers. The Marshal could not produce him, at different times, when suddenly called on. Dr. Blackburn saw Capt. Caulfield at Hampton Court on the 22d of August and tbe 8th of Sep- tember, and afterwards saw bis corpse at Melina- place.— John Rawlins, a plumber, said he had been sent for to a house near Bushy Pin k, where he soldered down a leaden coffin, but did not see the corpse, The Undertakers proved that they took the coffin to a house near Bushy Park, but were not allowed to see the corpse ; they saw the same coffin in a few days after at Melina- place, with the body of tbe deceased in it, which they buried. The evidence being so clear, a verdict was given for the plain- till'.— Capt. Chambers, but for the discovery of the indul- gence granted to this gay young man ill his last illness, would never have recovered the money which the Marshal must now pay. It is, however, supposed that he was fully indemnified by the friends of Capt. Caulneld, who, with all his faults, possessed many endearing qualities, and was much beloved. BREACH of PROMISE.— On Monday was tried, in the Court of King's Bench, an action brought by Mary Howell, a farmer's daughter in Monmouthshire, against John Charles, a young farmer ill the same county, for breach of promise nf marriage. The defendant appeared to have been a sufficiently dashing character to cut a figure iu high life. He had sought the acquaintance of the plaintiff, had told lier father and other relations that it was his wish to marry her; had agreed on the fortune he was to receive, the set- tlement be was to make, and the time and place of marriage, but had from time to time evaded the performance of his promises, and was at the same period engaged in an in- trigue with another Lady, the fair daughter of a black- smith in Abergavenny. Like many heroes of higher rank hi the annals of intrigue, he was, however, caught in his own snares: the blacksmith's daughter, by whom he had a child, had the address to frighten him into a private marriage, the report of which occasioned Miss Howell to decline receiving his further visits; and when, on his having the effrontery solemnly to declare that there was no truth in the report, he was permitted for a short time to renew his visits, he did not, as the Attorney- General stated, obtain his purpose ; the plaintiff had not to lament that by these deldsive promises he had triumphed over her virtue,' she came to demand reparation for tiie insult offered to her, and through her to the whole sex, by his first addressing her with a promise of marriage, by his breach of that promise in marrying another, and by then daring to continue his profligate addresses under the false assertion that he was not married.— The marriage of the defendant to Elizabeth Jones was proved to have taken place ill September 1807. The defence was a very lame one ; and the Jury made the defendant pay for his l'rolies by a verdict of 150/. damages. SEDUCTION.— A young woman, with an infant child, two, months old at her breast, was found dead on Saturday morning early, at the corner of a bve- lane, leading from Edgeware to Beaconsfield, and is supposed to have died from fatigue and hunger. The infant, which was alive, arid excited the alarm which led to the discovery of its situation, was conveyed to a neighbouring house by a waggoner who found it, and is likely to do well. The un fortunate young woman resided in a respectable service in Baker- street in August last, and went to Dunson, in Ox- fordshire, her home, to lie- in; since which, deserted by her seducer, and scorned by her former friends, she had been begging about the country, till her sufferings were terminated as above. On Monday morning a young woman named Heater, servant in a family in Oxford- street, was found dead in her bed. She was observed during the last week to labour under deep melancholy, from some Unknown cause. It was, however, discovered that she had poisoned herself, in consequence of her being pregnant; add from a letteji; found in h r room, it appeared that the wretch . who had, seduced lier avowed his determination to visit lier noj more and to give her no assistance, unless compelled to do it. OLD BAILEY,— On Saturday James Atkins, alias Starky, Samuel Lasper, andT. Cavill, were tried for burglariously entering the house of the Countess of Morton, in Park- street, on the night of tbe 5th of October, with intent to steal, but Which Was frustrated by tlieir encountering Foy and Jackson, Police Officers, who had stationed themselves in the house, when a desperate conflict ensued, in which Lasper was wounded so as to occasion cjne oF his arms to be since amputated a little below the shoulder, and Starkey, in jumping from the garden wall into Park- lane, broke his leg; Cavill was taken in the house; a fourth robber escaped. The evidence was so clear against the prisoners, that the Jury immediately found them guilty,— Death. The Judge ( Sir N. Grose) bestowed high commendations on the conduct of Foy and Jackson, in discharging the desperate duty of apprehending these offenders.— Starkey was allowed a seat during the trial, and was taken into and out of the Court on crutches— Lasper appeared much emaciated by the operation and illness he had undergone. — Cavill was. an interesting young man, only la years of age, and appeared indifferent about bis fate.— Robert Simpson was also capitally convicted, for stealing nine shirts and several other articles. On Monday Patrick M'Mahon was indicted for stealing a single- horse chaise. Tho prisoner lias been a dashing swindler, and he and his associates have obtained carriages of different coac'nmakers, by drawing bills on Ryan and Co. Cannon- street. When these bills were offered for ac- ceptance, one of the firm would be In attendance to " do ( he needful;" but w'hen they became due, and were pre- sented for payment, " the needful" was invariably found wanting. The judges having, in different instance's, decided that this species of fraud does not amount to a felony, because tradesmen part with their property on the' credit of the bills, and the Recorder now repeating the same opinion, the prisoner was acquitted; but he was de- tained on an indictment for " a conspiracy to defraud." E. W. Roberts and J. Maitland were indicted for a felony ill having obtained from Mr. Smith, an upholsterer of Cheshunt, a variety of articles of furniture.— This ea* e was similar in point of fraud to the foregoing, and the parties were acquitted on the same ground, and detained to be tried for a conspiracy.— Roberts is a Barrister of Lincoln's- lnn, and he, with his Lady and friend, greatly excited public attention a few months ago, when their frauds were first di- covered. At the close of the day's business, the Recorder passed sentence of death on Thomas Wright, for a rape; Robert Simpson, tor stealing goods in a dwelling- house ; Thomas Cannon and James Coddington, for a highway robbery; Samuel Lasper alias Collins, Thomas Cavill, and Samuel Starkey alias Atkins, for a burglary.— The hoary miscreant, Wright, she 1 tears oil his first appearing at the bar ; and Cannon was greatly affected the whole lime, and cried bitterly at the prospect of his fate. Yesterday 12 prisoners were tried, two of whom were convicted of felony. The Recorder passed sentence on the various prisoners convicted of felonies: Fenton, convicted of bigamy, was sentenced to be transported fbr seven years. CORN- MARKET, Dec. 7.

All our hopes respecting the success of the Patriotic Annies in the North of Spain, have vanished. The brave Casta'nos, who had gained some advantages over the enemy on the Ebro, has fallen the victim of military stratagem. His army is said to be no longer in existence. Intelligence to this effect was yesterday received by Government. The following is the meagre, but too fatally explicit account, which has been circu- lated asofficial in the Ministerial circles. " The intelligence yesterday " received from Gen. Sir 1). Baird, is dated As; oi* ga, the 29th ult. by which it appears, that the army under GeneralCastanos had sustained a de- feat, the particulars of which, however, bad not been re- ceived. General Sir John Moore had directed Sir D. Baird to re- embark, and proceed immediately to the„ Tagus, f n- the purpose of assembling the British army in . force, and enabling it to act ill such a manner as circumstances might point out, for the support of the common cause." Of our troops we have no very detailed information. — General Moore's first division reached Salamanca on the 15th. Sir David Baird was at Astorga on the 22d ult.; but it is now apprehended that they must both fall back. It is asserted in a letter from Corunna, dated Dee. 1, that the transports at Corunna had, on the 2d inst. begun to take on board the heavy baggage • belonging to the British army under the orders of General Baird ; and that the most, ample means bad been provided for the se- cure retreat of tbe whole of our forces. The defeat of the army of General Castauos appears to have been of a most decisive description. Whilst Bonaparte seemed to direct his chief attention to the operations in the western part of Spain, he was preparing a most decisive blow against Ge- neral Castanos, anil his plan has unhappily proved but tqo successful. Another letter from Corunna, of the same date,' says, " There is the utmost reasou to apprehend that Ge- iv. al Hope, who is arrived at Madrid with the cavalry and artillery belonging to Gen. Moore's army, will be cut off.— He must be so, if it be true, as we bear, that both Moore and liaird are retreating. In short, it i; absolute despair." The intelligence from the army of tbe Marquis De Jtomanai; rather more satisfactory. The Marquis, it ap- pears, had collected a force of above 20,000 men, and had taken a very strong position: there was nothing to prevent their junction with Sir David B. iird's army.— Lord Paget Juid been - sent to Leon, and had just returned when the courier left Astdrga. It appears, from a Proclamation of the Supreme Junta, iu the Coruhna papers, that the enemy had advanced in an oblique direction from Bttrgos to Lerma, Aranda, and across the Donro, They had got to the neighbourhood of Samozierra, a small town in the mountains that are due North from Madrid, from which it is about 40 miles dis- tant. Their number is said not to exceed 8000 men.— In this state ot affairs, the Junta po led a strong force at the important post of Guadarama, N. W. of Madrid about 26 miles. Th » English, who are said to have been on the 21st ult. at the Kyurial, were about to march to Guadarama, to reinforce the Spaniards iu that quarter. This, it is'pro- bable, was Genentl Hope's brigade, which was said to li:. ve reached Madrid on the 19th, but got ru> further than the I'inurial. Guadarafba is certainly an important post to defend, supposing the Trench t- o be advancing to Madrid by Medina, Arevallo, and the Monies Sargetanes— but it cannot check their march, supposing them to be proceed- ing « o the capital ? n a direction due South " from the Douro. Soon after the- arnsal pf the Messengers from Madrid yesterday, a Cabinet ( iauncil was assembled, which sat till fix o'clock, and was " attended by all tbe members in town On its rising, Mr. Shaw was sent off to France witb answers - to the di « pat^ e? brought.. by the flag of truce. Yesterday aftemooij tlie iftfnch and Russian couriers left town, on their returft to ii'rance. Two ladies, who \ ver6 lately . captured in a French privateer, have received permission to take their passage to Boulogne, in the flag of truce. "... • We learn, by a letter of the 3d of October, from St. Croix, that " the JVench- have succeeded in throwing large supplies mto Guadalojipe. Five vessels have arrived there, with upwards of 3( 100 battels of flour, and other provisions. One of'these, a ; slup armed jtfij/ t, with 33 guns ( heavy metal) ' and 350 men, captured the Eiijjiah brig Maria, with only, 12 guns ( 18- pounders) and 65 men yet our brave tars gallantly fought till 35 of this heroic band had fallen, ere they struck to this verysnperior force The Rook schooner, mounting two 12- pounders, manned with 25 men, and commanded by Lieut. James Lawrence, <; n her passage froin Jamaica, to Londun, with dispatches and a considerable Quantity of money, was attackek,. four days alter quitting that island, by two French privateer schooners, the one of 12, the otlicr of 10 ginis, and full of men. The action took place off St. Domingo, when, after a most gallant and determined resistance of an hour and half, the Commander unfortunately- fell', having received seven different woUnls, the last of winch terminated, the life of as Jjiillaot and able an Officcr as the service can boast of. T.; e action was still continued, in the most gallant manner, by Mr. Seward, the Master, until over powered by the number of the eneniv, and carried fly boarding, when the villains got possession, and no quarter itas given. After exercising the nw- t wanton cruelties on the few survivors, they were stripped, ordered into the boat, and to make for land in the best maimer. possible, which, after four hours, they succeeded in, and sot on shore on the South erul of St. Domingo. Neither Officer nor man has escaped being either killed or wounded. The Master, the only surviving Officer, ha; received live wounds in diHerent places; but, probably, not mortal, as it is from his letter this information is derived. Yesterday the Lord Mayor went in state to Guildhall, a id held his fir , t Court of Common Council. Mr. Deputy Hallier moved the thanks of the Court to Alderman Atisley, the late Lord . Mayor, for the zeal, integrity, and ability with which he had discharged the duties of his high office. Mr. Qnin oppoied tbe motion, insisting that the late Lord Mayor had failed in his duty, by abandoning the rights of the City, iii refusing protection to Mr. Chris- tie, a Liveryman, who bad been impressed. Mr. Deputy BOM, Mr. Vandercomb, and Mr. Alderman Birch, de fended the general conduct of the late Lord Mayor, and argued that in the ea- e, alluded to he had acted from error in judgment. Mr. Jacks said, the late Lord Mayor had frequently b:: en absent, from his residence for several days together;- that when he had waited on him, on public busi- ness, l, e had been received with great hauteur; and he thpujfhtthe thanks of the Court ought to be given with discrimination, and withheld for neglect or demerit. Mr. Griffiths, Mr. Diirhfurd, and Mr. Waithman spoke against the motion. The question being put, the Lord Mayor declared the shew of' hands to be in favour of the vote of thanks ; hut a division being called for, the numbers were, i ll the motion 0 Aldermen, 38 Commoners, 47; against it 59 Commoners."

LAW.— Court of King's Itench, Dec. 7.— The KINO V. Au: xASi> rp. DAVISON.— This was an information laid by the Attorney General, and prosecuted by prder of the House of Coinraous. The defendant, in the year 1793, became Agent fiir Barrack Stores* and an agreement was entered into with General De Laucy, the Barrack Master General. Jiis duty was to purchase all articles Jvhich might be re- quired for that department, foriwh'c'i he himself, in his letter of the 10th of January to th# J4ariack Master Gene- ral, thought that SJ per eeut. was fully sufficient as a com- mission for devoting his whole attention to the business., He, continued in this situation, performing the duties ofhis Station, and certainly no fault could be alledged against him Lill the year 1798, when he began ( o manufacture the articles in demand, in large quantities, and charge them to Government in the name of George Watson, who was his apprentice, and a young. man about twenty years in his own employ; on these goods which he so sold he directed Bjwring, his principal clerk, to manufacture false vouchers, ith a view to defraud the Barrack Department ; he also nfluenced John Alien, another clerk in his employ, to give receipts for large sums of money, pretended to be paid to " Watson, so as to give the whole the appearance of fair and bona file transaction. This practice he continued till the change of the Administration, in 1801 or 1802, when it was likely that an invetisgation would take place, and it struck him tha. t it would be adviseable. to change the mode of rendering his accounts, and soon after he sent them in without charging the commission of 2$ per cent, on the goods he himself manufactured and sold. In the eir 1804, suspecting that his accounts would be investi- gated, he sent in to the Barrack Office a supplemental account, wherein he debited himself with various errors in his former transactions, to the amount of more than 5,000/. but at the same time not a word was said about deducting the amount of the commission charged on the oodshe sold himself. In the year 1805, a Committee was appointed to investigate the Barrack Accounts, when he fused to give a Statement of his cash accounts, alledging that he had closed ali his transactions- with the Barrack Department, but. being examined as to these points, he sfiited, on oath, that there was no other agreement be- tween him and Gen. Delancy than the one dated 24th of December, 1- 794; and he had no other emolument from the business than the 2| per cent, stipulated in that agree- ment. Mr. Thomas Bontiar, Secretary of the Commissioners of Military Inquiry, produced the agreement, and the subsequent nine half- yearly accounts, with other vouchers, rendered to'the Barrack Board, wherein he charged large quantities of stores, bought from George Watson, and the different receipts, as proof of payment for the same, signed by John Allen. William James, clerk to. Mr. Lodge ( the packer employ- ed), proved the various returns made by his employer, of the stores forwarded ; and that a great part of them came from the defendant's warehouse in Bedford- street, in the name of Muhgo Sheddon, who had been manager of Mr. Davison's army cloathing concertos. He knew Watson, who was a clerk in that warehouse ; and did not think he was, at the time, in any condition to buy or sell goods.— He always considered that they were manufactured at the Bedford- street warehouse,, and belonged to the defendant; tiiough the half- yearly returns were made out in the name of Mungo Sheddon, the manager,- and afterwards in that of George Watson. John Allen Said he had been in the defendant's employ since 1800, and had the management of his books in his army clothing concern. Wafton either was, at the time alluded to, an apprentice to the defendant, or had been. Neither he nor the witness carried on business on their own account. The receipt far 15,136/. dated December 31, 1798, signed by the witness, and importing to be for bedding furnished by Watson, the witnessed not write till 1800. The witness did not receive any money, and did not know of any supply by Watson : he signed the paper by the desire of Mr. Bowering, the defendant's clerk, at his office in St. James's- square. Mr. Bowering dictated it to the witness. Sheddon had mentioned it first to him at Bedford- street, and desired him to go to St. James'- square upon the business. The witness signed similar ree ipts in half- yearly accounts for four or five years, besides the yearly ones, being all done at one time— they were fur years during which the witness had no acquaintance with the subject or the parties. The latter receipts he signed as the half years came round, lie always wtnt from Bed- ford- street to St. James's- square to do this, by the desire of Bowering. The Attorney- General here stated that the hills and re- ceipts, from the 24th of June, 1800, were as from Allen himself ; but he too never received from the defendant the msney for which he had signed receipts, nor did he, at anv time, supply bedding to any amount whatever. The articles so supposed to have been supplied, were sent fro the defendant's warehouse in Bedford- street. Upon Allen's cross- examination by Mr. Wilson, he said the defendant was concerned in other branches of business, and his general office was ill St. James's- iquaro. Bowering told him, as a reason for requesting the witness to si411 the receipts, that the defendant could not appear both as buyer and seller in the same account. The witness knew that some of these transactions were before his tim >. The de- fendant kept four or five elerks in Bedford-- street, about 100 work- people in the warehouse, and employed many hundreds out of it. The goods were sent to Lodge from the defendant's warehouse, without any charge of secrecy and the. witness knew of no instance where goods were brought from any other merchant's to Bedford- street. Upon his re- examination, he . said that Watson. was absent, a con- iderable part of the year, in which the witness signed receipts as for him ; but the witness ditl not know whether he was absent at the present time of signing. The witness was not it London before 1800. Here'tne case on the part of the pro~ eedtion closed. Mr. Dallas, for the defendant, made a, speech of more tliari two hours, wherein he appealed to the.' ury, in very forcible language, on the great propriety of discarding from their minds the abuse which they h id been accustomed to read for several months pa= t i. t the newspapers against the defendant, as his future honour and happiness depended on. tUe-' lmpartialitv of their verdict. He then took a view of the manner in which the Barrack Department bad been conducted previous to the year 1805, when a great- varietv of frauds had been committed to the injury of the public ; but Wuen General Delancy had been appointed, that evil became the object of his attention ; with a view to remedy the inconvenience he appointed Mr. Davi- ou sole Agent, to buy all the stores, and to transact the whole business, tor which he was t- » have. 2 § per cut. commission. In the year 1798 the demand- for Barrack stol'es becam - so great, that the articles could not be proeured in the market; and by a new agreement entered into with the Barrack- master General, Mr. Davison was ordered to supply th m himself. Being an army clothier, he possessed every facility and advantage, and for which he was allowed to charge tbe commission originally .' agreed on. These important facts would be proved by General Delancy, whom he would call, and whose testimony would place his client in a very defe- rent light, with respect to his transactions with the public; independent of which, he had 01 her witnesses to call, who would also prove that the articlss: suppli d were charged 3 [ Ver cent, under the prices charged by others ; 0 that the public gained, instead of losing, by the transactions. The defendant employed one thousand workmen, and he acted under a new, positive, and particular agreement; a ! ii, reason for making out his accounts in the way he did n* a by the suggestion of his clerk, as conformable to the 01 i- ginal agreement, and the barrack regulation. General Delancy proved that he appointed the d fendant as agent to barrack stores in the year 17.95.:; he at the time had 110 knowledge of him, but meeting him at public offices, where he was considered as a very aitivts punctual man in all his transactions. He acted as agent till 1758, when the demand for barrack stores was so* great, that he allowed him to supply the alleles from his own stores in Bedford- street. The patterns and the prices were submitted to the witness, and approved of. The whole was, except this de- viation, conducted on the principle, of the old agreement as to the commission. He had no suspicion of his acting fraudulently ; 011 the contrary, he had the greatest confi- dence iu his skill and activity, and he still thought the same. J. Bowering, the defendant's clerk, said, that he made out the accounts, and it appeared to him, that his master, according to the barrack regulation, could not stand in the same light as buyer and seller, and suggested the. propriety of making them out in the names of Watson and Allen, but the prices were charged lower by 3^ per cent, than the stores purchased by any other person. In the year 1803, the method of making out the accounts had been altered, and the witness proposed to take off the commission from the year 1797; and he applied to the Accountant- Gcneral to get hack the vouchers for that purpose, but had been refused. Mr. Standbank, the Accountant- General, said, he had been applied to, but he could not give back the vouchers without an order. Lord Moira, Sir E. Nepean, Sir W. Rule, Sir 3. Ham- mond, Messrs. Long, Huskisson, and several other gentle- men, gave the defendant a most excellent character. His Lordship took an extensive view of the evidence, and concluded with saying, that there could be no doubt of the fraud committed by the defendant. The Jury retired for fivtf mirtotes, and brought in a ver- dict of-— Guilty. The trial l isted from nine in the morning till i. ear tight o'clock at night.

LONDON. SATURDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 10. Two Gottenburgh Mails arrived this morning, wit!) letters and papers from Stockholm to the ' 25th ult. The Swedish army in the^ orth of Finland is retreat- ing. On the 10th its heaii- qiu'irters were at Brahestad, not far distant from the head of the Gulph of Bothnia. It has not only to contend with'a superior enctliy, be- fore whom it has been constantly retreating, but also with want and disease. Mails from Jamaica and the Leeward Islands were received yesterday. By letters from Barbados we learn, that all the French island, have been placed under a strict blockade, and the usual orders for stopping and seizing neutral ships which may attempt to violate die b! tkade, have been issued. Yestejday, about three o'clock, the Purser of the Sarah Christiana cams to the Ea « t India Mouse, with the agreeable intelligence of her safe arrival off th, Lie of Wight on the 8th inst. ; she sailed from Bengal the 1,9th of June, in company with the Ceylon and extra ship North- ampton, under convoy ot ids Majesty's shitt] Terpsichore. The intelligence from India is perfectly satisfactory. The Company's possessions are iu a state of tranquillity ; and ace in lit, had been received from Capt. Malcolm, who was gone 011 an embassy to the Court of PersiaWhat he had been very favourably received, and had hopes ( Accomplish- ing the'.- bject of his mi ision. .

These dispatches, it appears, were brought by Sir Thomas Dyer, w in of course has given much va- luable information to Ministers. Capt. Carpenter, of the army, and three Sicilian Messengers, arrived in the last packet from Malta, and h ive brought accounts of the 1 oss of the Aukland packet, iirthe Bay of Cadiz, on her passage home with Mails.

SPANISH PATRIOTS.— \ numerous and most respectable me tittig of the Merchants of London and others, took pl. t.-• ye terdav at the New London Tavern, Bishopsgate- rtreet," pursuant to advertisement, in order to take into t' isideration the propriety ofopeniugaSubscription, forthe j n- pose- of supplying the Spanish Patriots, engaged in the id in defence of th « independence of their country, with articles - of Clothing, and other necessaries.— The Lord Mayor stated very shortly the objects for which the meet- ing had belli called together, and expressed his conviction that they were of such a nature, as must powerfully recom- 111..;! themselves to the feelings of every Gentleman pre- *•• t.— Sir R. Wigram spoke shortly to the same effect.— Mr. Alderman Rowcroft explained the motives of those Gentlemen who had called the meeting, and read a letter fr. ini Mr. Perceval, stating that Government had amply provided shoes, coats, & e. for the Spanish armies, but titat there were many other objects to which the produce of private subscriptions might be beneficially applied. He moved that subscriptions should immediately be entered into for supplying tile Spanish armies with necessaries,- and that a C nilmtLt. ee should be appointed to regulate the dis- posal of'sueh money asshodld be subscribed.— Both motions pas « cd unanimously; a' Committee, compo.-. ed of the n " St respectable merchants, & c. was formed ; and in less than an hour upwards of ten. thousand founds were' " sub- scribed.

The 1 ith regiment of Light Dragoons arrived here, in two divisions, on Sunday and Mot day last, ; md were embarked immediately oti their arrival in transports which lay alongside the quay. The embarkation was well conducted, and occupied only about one hour of each day. The 16' th regiment is 011 its march, iittd expected about Sunday or Monday next. It will be followed, it i-, understood, by two regiments of cavalry of the German Legion. The wind is now fair for Spain; but it is said the 14th waits orders for sailing. The Marlborough packet from Madeira, the Cornwallis from St. Thomas, and the Prince Ernest from Jamaica, arrived on Tue- day. The Marlborough was boarded by a French privateer, of 14 guns, two days after leaving Ma- deita on her pa sage to Brazil, and after being plundered, was alia tdontul by the enemy. They took out six of her best crew. The mail was, as usual, hove overboard.— The Cornwallis, oil her passage out, engaged and beat off a French privateer. Two of the packet's men were killed, ft .1 two wounded. The i/ i ly Pellew and Princess Elizabeth packets sailed yesterday ; the former for Cqrunna, the latter for Lisbon.

The writ has been issued for the election of a Member to represent this County in Parliament, in the room of our late worthy and lamented Member Sir II. P. St. John Mildmay, and Monday the 19th instant is fixed for the day of election.—( See the Sheriff's Advertisement, in the next column.) We have received a Letter from Mr. Cobbett, re- citing a paragraph in our last Journal ( which explained that Lord Fitz- Harris does not at present posse , s any rever- sionary grant of a pen ion), and commenting on that paragraph at some length.— It w* as admitted bv the Gentle- man from whom we received the explanation, that the error was not ill the least imputable to Mr. Cobbett, the Com- mittee of Finance having reported the grant, and omitted to state its relinquishment:— there is therefore no necessity for our dwelling on that point; and Mr. C. say.,, he should not have noticed the explanation, had not our corres- pondent asserted that the public purse had been relieved by Lord Fitz- Harris's appointment to the Government of the Isle of Wight, which Mr. Cobbett considers not to liave been the case, since the Noble Lord receives 13791. a year immediately, whilst he gives up only 1200/. a year, the payment ol which was not to commence till after Lord Malmesbury's death. Mr. C. argues, that to make the assertion good, it must first be proved that there was a necessity for keeping alive the place; and next, that it was impossible to give it to some military or naval officer, as a compensation for real services.— Our inserting at length his arguments on this head would be embarking in so wide a field of ccntroversy,— in which we may expect that many champions will claim the right in equity of defend ing the propriety of retaining sinecures, with that of the King's Miui- ters to judge of the fitness of those on w. iom they a: e . estowed,— that we must either ren- der ourselves, liable to the charge of gross partiality, or abandon tor a time a part of our title,— that of " General Advertiser" to which we feel au extreme reluctance. Mr. Cobbett must therefore admit us to announce that we here drop the subject, which is of the less consequence as it often has been, and doubtless often again will be, ably discussed by his masterly pen, in the pages of his own Register. On the 30th ult. died, at Cowcs, in the Isle of V, ight, in the 82d year of his age, Richard Svkes, Esq. brother rj" the late Sir Francis Sykej, Bar t. M. P. for Wallingford. On Saturday died Mrs. Barton, who had 011 that day completed the 80th year of her age. She was tha relict of Mr. Barton, carpenter, of this city, and one of the widows of St. John's House. The following dreadful accident happened last Monday, at Mr. Curtis's grist- miil, in Fordingbridge :— As Daniel Rogers, the working miller, was reaching something near one of the principal wheels, the cogs caught the sleeve of his round froek, and drew in his arm, which was crushed to a mummy ; in an instant he was whirled up to the ciel- ing, where his ribs, & c. were dreadfully broken, and one of the cogs pierced his heart. O11 the stoppage of the mills his mangled and lifeless remains were extricated, andexhi, bited a most shocking spectacle.— After the ltumerou- similar accidents, recorded in the last five or si s years, it is wonderful that men in this employ should continue to wear a loose dress, which exposes them to so much danger, and from which they would be secured merely by adopting a close jacket for their outer garment. The above unfor- tunate man was upwards of CO years of age, and much es- teemed f'or his industry and integrity. He had three daughters resident in Fordingbridge at the time of the fatal accident. SOUTHAMPTON, DCC. 10. Bellevue, the late do- main of our Member Josias Jackson", Esq. it is reported, will, in the ensuing Spring, undergo great alterations. The lawn, which commands the most picturesque and beautiful scenery of the banks of the river Itchen and Southampton Water, is to be sold out in large allotments cre- cent, and will, from its situation, aflofH an advantageous speculation, particularly to those who look forward to the value of laud in this neighbour- hood on the return of peace. The superfluous buildings adjoining the mansion- house are to be taken down, so as to make it a compact residence for any gentleman of mo- derate fortune; and the intended improvements, when completed, will be highly ornamental to the environs of this much resorted town. On Monday last v. as married at Holyrood Church, by Hugh Hill, D. D. rector of that parish," Mr. Pierce, of Ringnood, to Mrs. Spurrier, a gay and lively widow, of Southampton. After the marriage ceremony was over, amd partaking of a little dejeune, the bridegroom and his lovely bride, accompanied by two elegant and beautiful bride- maids, set off in a coach and four for Lymington, to spend the honey- moon. On Thursday the 1st inst. died, at Hythe, after a long and painful illness, which he bore with trulv christian fortitude and resignation, James Irwin, Iv. q, Captain in the Royal Navy. He was of a sweet and amir. ble disposition, a brave officer, a tender husband, a good father, and a sincere friend. On Saturday last died, at the house of Majofr- General Richardson, in this town, Tbo. Scott, Esq. aged 25 years, late of the island of Tobago. To thePrinters of the S. U.

The Anniversary of the Bath and West of England Society was holden last Tuesday, at Hetling- house, Batli, B. Hobheuse, Esq. iu the Chair. The exhibitions of Live Stock were deemed better than for several years past.— The samples of manufacture in Broad Cloth, Cassimere, & c. evinced the growing importance of the Anglo- Merino wool, with every prospect of permanent advantage to the community. Carcasses also of this mixture of sheep were exhibited in a slaughtered state, and the meat appeared very fine. Several u- eftil implements in mechanics were produced for the Society's approbation. The Duke of Gloucester attended the Meeting, and was elected an hono- rary Member of the Society. An interesting memoir on the subject of Manure, ex- tracted from a M. S. lately discovered at an inn at Lynd- hurst, said to have been in the hand- writing of an inge- nious domestic in the ancient Baronial family of Delabere, was read ori the eve of the above meeting to a select party, who were much gratified by the communication.

The Corporal, besides complimenting the clergy- man who married them with 201, gave 50/. to his brother soldiers, to regale themselves 011 the joyful occa- ion.

From the late contest* iri which 1 was engaged singly against united adversaries, I withdrew under the disadvanr or circumstances, when the piflili'e m^ jUiad been violy agitated. Mindful, however, of the pnflnise I made at that period, that, whenever the ferment shoul#* have subsided and a fairer prospect should present itself, I wquliagain ap- peal to the sentiments of the county, I feel myself called upon by every consideration of your former confidence to re- new the humble tender of those services, which it has been my pride to execute with diligence and fidelity. My principles are known to you; my conduct has been uniform. If you again depute me to Parliament, I shall ex- ert the same diligence in promoting the just objects of your local inu rests; I shall pursue the same steady conduct in de- fending the true Rights of the People, and maintaining the real Lustre of the Throne, and the Integrity of the Established Church, I have the honor to be, Gentlemen, [ 293 With the greatest respect and devotion, Your faithful, humble Servant, Ilighclere, .

THE STATEMENT of the SINGLE- STICK PLAYING which took place at TRowB. iiDGn, that appeared in your Paper on the 2. sth uhtirno, was a correct one; I was th- i f - t exceedingly . ' rpr;/ ed to find that person, calling himself an Englishman, should deny the truth. Your well- known can :• * - ar rill see the propriety of repelling such a breach of stubb - n fatjts; that it should be replied to and set at rest; otherwise the first statement of course cannot be admitted. In consequence of this attack, I am now driven to the disttgr • « ble necessity of stating to the public some additional circumstances, which, Jrom motives of delicacy, I was before in : iced to conceal. I, t'o insist On it that Kearslv did break Hjmphies' head, anf the Jtmpife for Wilis would read'ly have admitted it as a fair head, : f his very delicate situation with Humphries .' which cannot here he explained; had- 4iot prevented him: Kearsly, however, was not reckoned as a tyer,' although in justice he ouKiit to have been. Next, Popham brbke Coleman's head, at the sajtie time he lost his own ; and, contrary to the declaration in the advertisement, which stated that " no player should leave the stage without permission of the umpires," and being him- self conscious of having lost his head, was instantly hurried off, though repeatedly requested to remain by the umpirf for Somerset, for a fair decision : this point was immcxiia^ ly dis- puted and insisted'on, but the- cfamour was so great^ hat it bore down all opposition ; although the blood was seen to drop by two most respectable eentlemen then present, who will now readily make their affidavits, if necessary, Of the same. Again, it is stated that Htbbard was allowed a head and thus reckoned as a tyer, because no Somerset man ap- peared in a limited time : this is a palpable falsehood ; no time whatever was proclaimed or mentioned, and a Somerset man, of the name of Baker, mounted the stage when called on; but the time being long expired for playing Out the tyers, they were now called.— The original advertisement before alluded to, also declared, that no person would he suffered to be on the stage but the players and umpires;" but in direct contra- diction to such a pledge, three or four of the defeated game- sters of Wilts were shamefully permitted to remain thereon ( in opposition to every remonstrance), encouraging and in- structing their countrymen during the remainder of the con- test.— To say no more, if the Somerset lads had been treated at Trowbridge in that very handsome and liberal manner that the Wiltshire were at Irome, and if they had been dealt justly by, the conclusion of the contest would have left them six tyers to two, and then of course their superior science in this manly exercise would not have been questioned.
