SALISBURY AND AND GENERAL ADVERTISER OF WILTS\ HANTS, DORSET, AND SOMERSET [ NUMBER • » 749. VOLUME LXXIII.] MONDAY, DECEMBER 26, 1808. PRICE SIXPENCE. £ Paper antl Print, Monday's and Tuesday's Posts. FOREIGN NEWS. VIENNA, NOV. 30. FROM Turkey, we learn, that propositions of peace have been recently made to the Porte on the part of Russia. This explains why the • Russians have not long since resumed offensive operations. HANOVER, NOV. 27.— It is finally settled that half of the country of Hanover is to be divided into estates, and bestowed on several of the Marshals of the Empire. They will produce a revenue of from 35,000/. to 100,000/. annually to be enjoyed by Generals Beruadotte, Mortier, Duroc, Ney, Augereau, Masse u*, Caulincourt, Davoust, Soult, Juriot, and Sebastitni. I'KTRRSBUJIGH, Nov. l( i.— Yesterday the bridges on the Neva were broken down by the ice. LONDON, MONDAY, DECEMBER 19. Dutch letters and papers to the 15th inst. reached Vown this morning.— A new decree has been issued by King Louis, for the more effectual execution of the former decrees against intercourse with tin-; country : by one article of this'new decree, all the crews of ships seized, on account of having arrived from an English port, are to be . Sent on board the lleet in the Texel, to serve during the war. The crew of orre ship which had been condemned, ^ 14 inmumber) were on the 13 th inst. marched through lii tterdam hand- cuffed, in order to bs sent to the fleet.— It is further said that 13 ships from England have been seized, that some of them had very valuable cargoes, and that in one vessel 3000 guineas and ( iO bales of cochineal weie fuond. ? Bonaparte has given particular denominations to the Ministers, See. whom he sum time Since created Counts, Mid has created, in addition, a great number of Nobles.-— General Clarke, the Minister of War, is denominated Count d'Huoebiiurg ; M. Cretet, Minister of the Interior, is Count de Q'anipemol ; 9 Senators ami SJ7 General Olfi- cers are created Counts; the Bishops have letters patent granting them the titles of Barops; 90 General Officers and 107 Colonels are al- 0 created Barons; and a great number of Chevaliers have received letters patent, several of whom add to their title a particular denomination. The hope of the defence of Madrid, which was cxcited by the dispatches from Corunna, received by Government on Friday, was short- lived; the Paris papers to the 5th inst. which arrived late on Saturday, having con- firmed the advices contained in our last Plymouth Letter, that the French have entered MADSID. The Moniteur of the 14th contains the thirteenth bulletin of the Trench army in Spain, which states that. 13,000 men of the Spanish • army of reserve, who defended the passage of the Souio- Siema, and who thought themselves in an unattackable position, being entrenched in the narrow pass called Puesto, with 15 pieecs of cannon, were attacked on the 30th ult. and completely dispersed ; the superior Officers all taken, the slaughter not great, as the soldiers threw away tluir arms and tied into. the mountains. On the 1st inst. the Emperor's head- quarters were at St. Augustin ;. and on th « Sil, the Duke of Istria, with the cavalry, commanded the heights of Madrid.— This bulletin is dated St. Martin, near Madrid, I) ec. 2/ The Moniteur has this short additional article :—" Camp at Madrid, Dec. 4. The town of Madrid has capitulated. Our troops. entered. it this day at nofm." I An accident, occasioned by the slippery state of the roads, pra'eiited the above' d:\ SStma intelligence from appearing in the ivtiole of our last im/ fessim: it is therefore here repeated.] Dispatches from . V. miral Purvis, at Gibraltar, dated the 28th nit. state that the Hydra, Weymouth, and Prevoyante, with a convoy, from England, arrived at Gibraltar on the 28th. The Eagle, of 74 guns, sailed from GidU on the « i7th ult. with a convoy for England. Admiral Purvis had with him, at Gibraltar, the Atlas, Kent, Volontaire, Leonidas, Scout, Kingfisher, and Sa- bina ; the last of which had arrived from South America with dispatches, which were carried to Madrid by her Commander, Capt. Kittoe.— The French fleet at Toulon mready for sea, and waiting an opportunity to slip out: Lord Collingwood was watching tin- in closely, having information both of their object and destination. Several transports are ordered to Cork, to take oats and forage to Spain, for the use of our cavalry. The storm on Saturday has done considerable damage amopg the shipping. Accounts from Margate state that the Walpole East India ship has run o » shore on the side of Fairness Rock, with her main and mizen mast cut awify ; she lay in a most distressed state yesterday morning, and great " apprehensions were entertained for the people on board: four other of the recently arrived Indiamen re- mained in the Roads on Sunday, two with signals for assistance flying ; a gun- brig had run oil shore in Margate Bay : the schooner Francis, of Exeter, with a cargo of iron from Wales for London, run on shore near Walmer Castle, and was beaten to pieces, crew saved: several transports, off Deal, had their masts, & c. carried away; others lost their anchors and cables; but the men of war rode out the gale in safety. This morning at five o'clock, Mr. T B , junior, of Threadneedle- street, shot himself in a fit of insanity, and instantly expired. Mr. White, - jf Ho", ( whose murder we mentioned in OUT last,) it appears, a short time since, detected a neigh- bour's servant in the act of robbing his master, to whom he gave information, and the man was discharged. The fellow vowed revenge, purchased a gun, and is suppose^ to have loaded it with pebbles. The piece found is proved to have been the same sold to" hiui; and, what strongly cor- roborates the suspicion that he was the perpetrator, is, his absenting himself from home ever since the murder was committed. He has been taken into custody at Babchild, and removed to, Rochester.

Ctor/ /' rem' Rear- Admiral Sir Edward Pettew, Bar!. to the Secretary of the . Admiralty,, dated on board his liftfjosty'i shif Cutfod& i, in Bombay Harbour, ( Ac 7< A, of April, 1808. SIR, " IRIIQUEST you. will suUm. it to the Right Hon. the " Lot\ ls Comm'fssiimtM's of the Admiralty, the in- closed letter / from Lieutenant William Dawson, acting ill the. command of liii Majesty's ship St. Fiorenzo, stating the particulars of the capture of La Piwlmontaise French frigate,- mounting 50 guns, on the 8th ult. in the Gnlph of Manaar. In making this communication to their Lordships I am desirous of expressing those u » i: « gled sentiments of admi- ration and concern which I experience in the loss of Captain George Nicholas Harding'-, who fell in the moment of victory, after having exerted, during three successive days, the most remarkable zeal, gallantry, and judgment in the conduct of this very brilliant action. His Majesty's ser- vice has been thus deprived of. a most excellent and distin- guished officer; of whom the highest expectations have been justly formed, from a knowledge of his many, great and excellent qualities. The merit of Lieut. Win. Dawson, upon whom the command devolved after llv; death of Capt. llardinge, is already well known to the Board by his gallant behaviour on a former occasion, when he was severely wounded at the capture of the Psyche frigate by the St. Fiorenzo, in which nearly the whole of her present officers and crew had the honour to share. The manner in which he continued the action, which h id been so nearly concluded by his lamented Captain, and finally conducted it to a successful isisue, will, doubtless, secure to him the high approbation and recompence of their Lordships. The undaunted bravery, the animated and persevering exertions of every officer, seaman, and marine on board the St. Fiorenzo, have been truly worthy of the beloved country in whose cause they have been so nobly engaged j ihe public gratitude will be commensurate with their * minent services. 1 learn that the St. Fiorenzo had arrived with her prize iu safety at Colombo, from whence she may shortly be expected at this port.— I have the honour to be, & c. ' EDWARD PELLEW. His Majesty's skip St. Fiorenzo, at Sea, ' March 9, 1808. IT is with great regret I have to inform you of the death of Captain Hardinge, late of his Majesty's ship St. Fiorenzo, who fell gloriously in the early part of an actioi. tin the 8th inst. between his Majesty's ship St. Fiorenzo an J the French national frigate La Pisdmontaise. The St. Fiorenzo sailed from Point de Galle on Friday the 4th inst. at half past eleven A. M. On the 6th, at seven A. M. passed three Indiainen, and, shortly after, saw a frigate bearing N. E. We immediately hauled our wind in chaee, and made all sail, being at that time in lit. 32', long. 77° 58'. We made the private signal, which was not answered ; ahd at five shewed our colours, which ' the enemy took no notice of. At forty minutes past eleven P. M. we ranged alongside of him on the lar- board tack, and received his broadside. After engaging till fifty minutes past eleven P. M. within a cable's length, the enemy made sail a- head, out of the range of our - hut; we ceased firing, and made all sail after him; continuing to come up with him till daylight, when finding he could not avoid an action, he wore, as did we also. At twenty' five minutes past six recommenced the action at the dis- tance of halt a mile, gradually closing with him to a quar- ter of a mile. The fire was constant and well directed on both sides, though that of the enemy slackened towards the latter part of the action. At a quarter past eight P. M. the enemy made all sail away; our main- topsail- yard being shot through, the main royal mast, and both niain- topmast- stays, the mainspring- stav, and most of the standing and running rigging, and all our - ails shot to pieces, and mo st of our cartridges fired away, ( as our guns w- re directed at his hull he was not much disabled about hi! rigging,) we ceased firing, and employed all hands in repairing the damages sustained, and fitting the ship again f r action. From the great injury our masts, yards, and sails hi' received, I arti sorry to observe that it was not in our p, var to chace to renew" the action immediately ; we, how- e - r, succeeded in keeping sight of him during the night; and at nine A. M. on the 8th, the ship being perfectly prepared for action, we bore down upon the enemy under all sail; he did not endeavour to avoid us till we hauled athwart his stern, for the purpose of gaining the weather gage, and bringing hiin to close fight, when he hauled up also, and made all sail; but perceiving that we came fast up with him, and that an action was inevitable, he tacked, md at three we passed each other on opposite tacks, and rec > mme iced action within a quarter cf a cable's length. With s r ef I have to observe that our brave Captain was kil ed by a grape- shot the second broadside. When the enemy was abaft our beam he wore, and, after an hour and twenty minutes close action, struck their Colours, and waved their hats fur a boat to be sent them. She proved to be La P; » dmont commanded by Mons. Epror, Ca- p: tains du Va'swaux; she mounts 50 guns, long eighteen- pounders en h t main deck, and 3b'- pounder carronades on hei quarter deck. She had 3SU Frenchmen on board, and nearly 200 Lascars, who worked their sails.. She sailed from " the I- le of France on the 30th of December. In the action she had 43 killed and 112 wounded. The St. Fio- renzo has 13 killed and 25 wound d ; most of the latter ar_' in a most promising way. A list of them I have the honour to inclose for your information. The enemy was cut to yi. eees in his masts, bowsprit, and rigging; and they all went by the board during the night. ft is now a pleasing part of my duty to recommend to your particular notice the cool, steady, and gallant con- duct of Lieutenants Edward Davies and Henry George Moysev; the latter, I am sorry to add, was severely wounded a out ' ten n i. mtes before the enemy struck. I also ex- p -; - need very great assistance' from Mr. Donovan, the Master, by the judicious and seaman- like manner in which he laid us alongside the enemy. ' 1 o Lieut. Samuel Ash- more, of the Royal Marines, I am much indebted, for the cool and determined courage evinced by him through the whole action. Indeed every officer, petty officer, seaman, and marine in the ship behaved in the most brave and gal- la t manner, and nobly maintained the pre- eminence of the British Flag. Iu the first boat from the prize came Mr. W. F. Black, Assistant- Surgeon of liis Majesty s 8( ith regiment, captured by the Piedmoutaise on his passage to Madras, who rendered the Surgeon great assistance. I am also much indebted to the officers of the army, and the captains and officers of the country ships, who were p. isoners on board the enemy, for the great assistance they a fordid us with their Lascars in erecting jury masts, and v.- rki g the ship into port, as from our weak state, and ti. e great number of prisoners on board us, we could spare but few hands from our own ship to send on board the prize.—— I have the honour to be, & c. 1 WILLIAM DAWSON.

A Gottenburgh Mail arrived yesterday, and brought an account of a Convention concluded on the lytli of No- vember, between thy Russian and# Swedish troops in Fin- land, by which the StVedish General agreed to evacuate Uleaborg, and to take a position on the frontieis of the district of that name, between Pockawara and Peni. This line of demarcation places the Swedish army upon the frozen confines of Lapland, and is tantamount to the entire abandonment of Finland. The reason given by General KJcrcker for concluding this convention, which makes over to Russia the ancient province and harrier of Sweden, is the great superiority of the enemy, who had been reinforced with 20,000 men, furnished with 60 pieces of ordnance, whilst his own little army was reduced by deaths in the field, with continued and increasing sickness, to 7000 men.—- In addition to the Convention, General Klercker proposed an Armistice to the 12th of January. Count Kaminsksi, the Russian Commander, refused to accede to this proposition ; but though he would not sign a formal truce, he agreed not to re- commence hostilities without giving fourteen days previous notice. The fifty- two clays for returning the Writs to elect a Temporal Peer of Ireland, in the room of the late Lord C anricarde, expired on Thursday, when the F^ arl of Clon- carty was declared by the Clerk of the Crown and Hanaper duly elected.— Fifty- one Peers only voted, of whom fifty were for Lord Cloncarty, and one for the Earl « £ Mount- Cashell. The Earl of Liverpool, who died on Saturday last, had attained the 80th tear of his age. He had a severe dis- order iu his bowels, which must soon have carried him oft"; but his death is supposed to have been hastened by the shock he received when Lady Liverpool's dress caught fire a few days before, and he was too much exhausted by illness to assist her. Lord Liverpool was the second son of Sir Robert Jenkinson, of Headiugton, in Oxfordshire, and commenced life with very little fortune, without any re- gular profession, and with scanty patronage. It is said in an evening print, that " in the earlier part of hi-- life he was much inclined to literary pursuits." The fact is, that he wrote essays, & c. for the Gentleman's Magazine, at a weekly salary ; but not being eminently successful iu this employ, he obtained an appointment ill a public office, where he soon learnt to make himself useful to his politic d connections, especially to the Earl of liute, and rose rapidly to places of honour and emolument. Besides his efficient offices, he had the patent sinecure of Collector of the Customs inwards in the Ports of London ; and Mr. Fox, in the days of hii dissipation and embarrassment, having , improvidently bargained to resign the place of Clerk of the Pells in Ireland for the inadequate pension of 10O01. a year for 30 years, which he could bring into the money market, Mr. Jenkinson obtained also that lucrative sinecure. In l~ 68, he was created Baron of Hawkesbury; in 17& 9, by the death of Sir Banks Jenkinson, he succeeded to the family estates and the Baronetage ( a title which of course merged in tlte Peerage]; and in 1796 he was advanced to the Earldom of Liverpool, and was authorised by his Ma- jesty to quarter the arms of that commercial town with his own honours; which were peculiarly appropriate, ou account of his great ability and industry in superintending the trade of the kingdom, as President of the Committee of Council appointed for that purpose. In private life his Lordship was truly amiable, and was looked up to as the arbiter and adviser in all disputes aud difficulties among his relatives aud friends. The Dckf. of QuEENSBr. RRY has given Jive thousand pounds to the fund for the assistance of the Spanish pa- triots. This Nobleman is the incessant object of attack in different newspapers, wherein his little foibles are most severely commented on; J. ut for years past, whenever any great object has occasioned an appeal to the liberality of the public, he has uniformly been the most munificent sub- scriber ; and he has also shewn that he does not merit the treatment he has received, by the good- humoured forbear- ance he has manifested towards those who have attacked him. Such is the increased consumption of coffee, in conse- quence of the reduction of the duties, in October last, that one house in London has already cleared out of the docks two hundred tens for home consumption. SMITHFir. t. n CLUB CATTLE SHEW.— On Monday the Duke of Bedford, Lord Somerville, the Earl of Thanet, and a great number of other Noble and distintinguished patrons of grazing and agriculture, assembled at Mr. Sad- ler's yard, and examined the excellent stock exhibited for the premiums.— At three o'clock a meeting of the Club took place at Freemason's Tavern, the Duke of Bedford in the Chair, at which 29 members were present, and several new members were elected.— Yesterday the Club again met at Freemason's Tavern, and after transacting some ordinary business, about 220 Gentlemen sat down to dinner, the Duke of Bedford in the Chair. After dinner, and some ot the usual toasts, his Grace, iu an animated speech, noticed the very jreat degree of improvement and excellence which i tills year evident in the cattle exhibited; he also entered into a detailed statement of the number ef beasts and sheep sold in Smithfielil, on the average of every five years since the A nerican war; noticing particularly the astonishing intreise which has taken place, and which never conld hate been supplied but by the gradual banishment, within that period of numerous coarse and unprofitable breeds o ' attle from our pastures, and supplying their place with b e. eds uisposed to early and pcrfect maturity; principally through which the pri? e of meat, at least between the grazier and butcher, has not increased in any degree pro- portionate to the other necessaries of life. These argu- ments were supported by Lord Somerville, who stated that, in compliance with the wishes of many breeders of cattle, a sale of stock of superior quality will take place on the Wednesday preceding his Spring Show of (.' attle ( t'he 8th of March). " The Woburn sheep- shearing" being given as a toast, the Duke of Bedford rose, ami gave the company a general invitation to his agricultural fete in June next. Having drank " the memory of Mr. Bakewell," and " Prosperity to the Agricultural Societies throughout the kingdom," his Grace quitted the Chair, which was taken by Sir John Sebright, _ who drank, " Long leases to good tenants," which was much applauded.— At this meeting several new regulations were made to secure to the public the advantages intended by the premiums. The officers were chosen for the year ensuing; the Duke of Bedford is re- elected President. CitiM. CON.— Yesterday was tried in the Court of King's Bench, before Lord EUenborough and a special jury, an action brought in the name of Mr. Parr, against Air. Ralph Benson. The parties are both wealthy merchants at Liver- pool ; the defendant was charged with seducing the wife of the plaintiff, and the damages were laid. at 30,000;.— It was stated by the Counsel for the plaintiff that the injury sustained by his client was of a most aggravated uature : the dishonour brought on him by the defendant, who had been his intimate friend and companion, had occasioned the derangement of his intellects, and lie was now a confirmed lunatic. This action was therefore brought by his brother, Mr. Edward Parr, an attorney at Liverpool, and would have been tried at the last. Lancaster Assizes, but that Mr. Parr had no evidence of the conduct of the defendant, till since that period. Several witnesses proved that the be- haviour of Mr. Benson to Mrs, Parr was remarkably free and familiar, even in the presence of her husband ; and on their crpss- exainination it appeared pretty evident that Mr. Parr cared very li ttle about his wife's conduct, in behaving with equal familiarity to Mr. Benson. Mr. Parr has now been confined nearly a year in a private mad- house, and from that period Mrs. Parr has lived with Benson at his seat at LudwiCh Hall, his own wife having separated from him. — Mr. Garrow, for the defendant, observed that this cause been much over- Stated : the Plaintiff's Lunacy was not attributable to the Defendant: I^ Hiad been twice before confined on that account. Thes^ Koiuts were proved by the unwilling confession of Mr. Edward Parr, on his cross- examination by Mr. Garrow, and also by other witnesses.— Lord Ellenborough in summing up the evidence, severely censured two of the witnesses ( Major Chamberlain and Capt. Gladwin) who, according to their own statement, had frequently partaken of Mr. Parr's hospitalities, anil observed the indecent familiarity of Mr. Benson towards Mrs. Parr, which tbev countenanced by continuing their visits. His Lordship contrasted this with the truly honour- able conduct of Mr. Penny, a merchant of Liverpool, who having dined with Mr. Parr on Benson's invitation, and made the same observations, remonstrated with him on leaving the party, told liiui he behaved like a scoundrel, that if she were his wife, he would kick him out of the house ; tnd never repeated his visit.— The Jury, after ten minutes leliberatioh gave a verdict for the plaintiff, damages 1000A— The defendant was stated to be worth 300,000 , A very considerable improvement iu barley- bread has been discovered by Edward Stracev, Esq. by which it may be made as light as wh.- ateu bread," without the addition of any of the latter grain, the usual method adopted for rendering it light. In ihe present situation of the Colli Market this discovery promises the most beneficial con- sequences. On Tuesday morning the 13th inst. a fire broke out on hoard the True Briton trading vessel, in Penzance harbour, which at first threatened all the vessels around her, but was extinguished in the vessel where it began, w'hose cargo was considerably damaged, and a young man, whose care- lessness had occasioned the accident, perished in the flames I A fire broke out on Sunday night, in the house of Mr. Hend, near Colebrook, occasioned by the very culpable carelessness of a servant- maid, who, having put a little boy, four years old, to bed, left a lighted candle so near the bed- curtains as to set them oil lire, aud the child perished iu the flames. Mr. and Mrs. H. were on a visit about a mile from home ; before they could return, their house was consumed, and their child with it I A man hatne. l Ci oke, a vender of pamphlets, was found frozen to death on Sunday morning, in a ditch near Bag- nigge We'll. Mr. Jonathan Peste, a grazier, who resided in Cross- street, Hatton- street, was found frozen to death early the same morning, iu the road leading from the bot- tom of Gray's- inn- lane to Camden Town. And on the same morning also Mr. Bisset, a respectable builder, who resided in a row of new- built houses in the Hampstead- road, and had been to Newington oil the preceding evening to receive some money, was found frozen to death in the foot- path across the fields from Islington to Hauip- tead- road. Three persons thus perished from the same cause, a short distance from each other, and nearly at the same instant; and it has since been ascertained that they had all called at diffe- rent public- houses, and drank feeely of warm liquors, pre- vious to their setting off to walk home.

THE storms on Monday' the 7 th and Thursday the 17th in< t. have liken particularly cfestiHictive,. and occasioned great damage to. the shipping and small craft in the river. The lives lost on these occasions, we fear, are numerous. . Six of the Hot!. Company's ships were driven from their mooring*; three of them got 011 shore,, but they were all got off anil " secured with little damage. ' The river craft driven 011 shore, sunk, and dashed in pieces upon the beach, are innumerable ; indeed, the vio- lence of the gale can scarcely be conceived, or the effects describM. One singular circumstance may lie mentioned, which serves to illustrate its violence.— A six- bared pinnace belonging to the - lady Barlow, which was lying upon the beach war tho top of the esplanade, was thrown up the bank, carried across the Respondentia walk, and lodged among the bricks on the opposite side. The beach, to a considerable extent, both above and below Ulcutta, exhibited a scent ot the most distressing Mature. It was strewed with wrecks; and scarce a Vessel in the river escaped the ravages of the storm. On shore s. « voral brick'buildings were blown down, and numerous tiled and thatched huts levelled to the ground.. In one house seven natives were crushed to death, and we Sear we shall hear of many other similar accidents. LONDON, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 23.

After the dividend . had been declared, and the Chair- man, had stated the tranquil state in which the last ac- count's left India, Mr. Handle Jackson rose to call the -•' Stention of the Court to the extraordinary ascendancy of tie enemy's eruizers in the . Indian, spas, arid the dreadful » vages w'bich they had been. tamely permitted to commit Won British property. With, a maritime force greater liin. h^ d ijeeii usually kept in those seas, the trade had k< ti> so. completely unprotected, that the Calcutfa in- Suhtice. Companies alone had paid losses Jo the amount of aijre that) two miili iusrof money within the last seven or eijht. years ; and in the month of September and October oily, oi the year 1807, their losses had been upwards of JSi. QOOA These, as well as numerous other captures, 1- 4 been effected by two French . frigates, and principally bystii-; Revennatit privafecr, o< Mi runs, which latter hail Sc « » « l those seas for three months together, and in fact bliekaded during that time the Bay of Bengal, although a great maritime force, with an Admiral's flog and several ( Mints flying, was then lying within three hundred Bilee- of this scene of depredation. He did not pretend, ftr where the fault lay; if with the Commander, the Board tf Admiralty that wanted nerve enough to recal such a man' Oight to he dismissed by the Minister, and changed for Bien of more comprehensive faculties and more vigorous exertions, fff the Minister wanted courage to do this, he was not the Minister for such a country in such times. The Chairman ( Mr. Parry) said, this subject had not SSsapnl the attention of the Directors. The depredations bai been scantulous, and certainly there had been neglect Somewhere. At present be could only add, that the Ad- miral had lie » n recalled, and he trusted precautions would be . taken to prevent the recurrence of the evil sd justly complained of, Mr. Rock alluded to a report out of doers, that the re- Bewal of the Company's Charter was to be a subject 01 dis- cussion during the next Ses^ on, arid wished to know if it Wert true, that Gentlemen might prepare • themselves accordingly ? The Deputy Chairman replied that nothing had occurred which authorised him to say the discussion would take place next Session. Mr. Rpekr- referrtng] to the late gift of one thousand £' » < illd « - W the Spanish Patriots, protested against the lirectors giving away the fundstif the Coinptmy, however meritorious the object, without the consent of their con- stituents. In this protest Mr. Jackson and other pro- prietors agreed.— The Court then adjourned. His Majesty's ship Victor, Captain Groube, accom- panied hy a very rich Danish ship, lately from the Isle of Fr ujee, h » * arrived at Madras. We understand the Victor,- during her crui « to the southward, captured seven Da- nish vessel, laden w ith articles of considerable value. His Majesty's ship Modiste took possession of the Admiral Chapman Danish ship, off Gai. ja. ni, and sent her tor Cal- cutta, where she lias arrived. From the Kentish . coast we learn, by- this day's post, that the Walpole Lidutnan lies upon the shore near Margate, in such a stale that hopes are entertained of saving the greater part of her cargo.

The tall of snow has been very great in various parts of the kingdom. It fell with such rapidity on the evening of Friday, and the forenoon of Saturday last, on, the north- east and east coast of Yorkshire, a: totally to suspend the progress of even' kind of public carriage. One of the nieces of a General Officer on the Dublin Staff, who had the conduct of hi-, house,- lias been detected in defrauding liim, by forged receipts, jud other artful means, to the amount of 5,000?. The humanity of tho uncle has only made banishment to England the punish- ment for her offence. A Coroner's Inquest was yesterday held on the body ol Mis.

No further intelligence has been reeeived from Spain. The anxiety for advices from our armies in that coun- try is veiy sreat, in every classof the community. It is said that Sir Arthur Weliesley has offered to undertake the defence of Portugal with ? 4,000 in- fantry and 2000 cavalry. It is further said that Sir Arthur Weliesley is to be appointed Commander in Chief of the British forces in Spain and Portugal. Yesterday arrived a Mail from New York, which brings letters and papers to the ] 8th of November. The latter contain the Message of the President of the United States to Congress, on the opening of the Session on the 8th of November. It appears from it that the pro- posal made to France by the American Government, stating the conditions on which the embargo would he taken off, has received no answer from that country, while it has been rejected by the British Ministry. To England it was proposed " that on her rescinding her Orders in relation to the commerce of the United States, their trade would be opened with her, and remain shut to her enemy, in case of his failure to rescind his JDecrces also." The same proposition, under a modified form, was submitted to France. Under a continuance of these mea- sure-, Mr. Jefferson cannot see either safety or honour for the United States, but in a rigid adherence to the prin- ciples that induced them to have recourse to the embargo. It of eour- e continues in full force. The President slurs over the affairs of Spain, by simply itating, that their relative connections and pending nego- ciations with that country are suspended by the events of the moment, respecting which the great advocate for the independence of States, and the rights and liberties oj mankind, gives no opinion! The President recommends the perfecting and improving the militia system, as most competent to the internal, and gun- boats to the external, defence of the country. During the operation of the embargo, the attention of Congress is called to ( he improvement of the internal re- sources of America, and the encouragement of its arts, manufactures, and commerce; as also to the extension of intellectual knowledge throughout the great mass of its population. Mr. Jefferson takes leave of Congress, with an apology for ail his political errors, as being merely those of judg- ment. The President"; Message was taken into consideration ' n the House of Representatives on the IOth of November, when Mr. Chittenden observed, that after ten or eleven months experience, he could not perceive that any benefit resulted from it; he therefore moved a resolution, pur- porting that it ought to be repealed; and next, that it 1 l) e referred to the Committee of the whole House on the state of the Union, to whom is referred the President's Message. Mr. Epps moved that a resolution of a directly opposite tendency, prohibiting all intercourse between the United States and England and her colonies, should be referred to the same Committee as the President's Message, t ea be resolution, modified and thus coupled, was carried. — Nothing further of the proceeding of the Legislature, on this important question, had been heard at New York. Neither of his Majesty's Proclamations for a Ge- neral Fast notices his " Dominion of Wales," or " Town of Berwick upon Tweed." Those parts of the TJnited Kingdom called England, Ireland, aud Scotland, are par- ticularly specified; but if the good subjects of the Princi- pality anil the aforesaid Town chuse not to s'. omach this mode of attacking the enemy, they may reasonably hesitate which of the battalions to place themselves.

The em- bargo continued; but it was understood a relaxation would take place in favour of the powers not belligerent. The Resistance frigate is arrived from a cruize. The Urania Portuguese frigate sailed on Monday last, with a fleet under convoy for the Brazils. A fleet of light transports, which had sailed from Portsmouth for Vigo, is arrived here, having received counter orders. PLYMOUTH, Dec. 23. The West India fleet, from Portsmouth, has passed down Channel. Yesterday came in several transports, from the eastward. Sailed the Norge, of 74 guns, for the westward. This day came in the Espiegle sloop of war, from a cruize. Sailed the Brilliant, of 28 guns, for Portsmouth. A Swedish ship that has discharged her cargo at this port, upset this morning in Hamuazc, being very light in ballast. At a Coroner's Inquest on the body of Cant. Balderston, the facts recited in our last were established by evidence, and a verdict of Wilful Murder was returned. The same evidence was repeated before a Court Martial, by which Smith was found guilty of the murder, and condemned to be hanged a' the yard- arm of such ship, and at such time, as the Lords of the Admiralty shall direct.— The warrant for his execution is hourly expected. PORTSMOUTH, Dec. 24. Vice- Admiral Berkeley has hoisted his flag on board the Conqueror, of 74 guns, Capt. Fellowes, and will sail on Monday next ior his station off Lisbon. The Victorious, of 74 guns, lately launched at Buckler's Hard, is ordered to be commissioned for im- mediate service. The Dromedary store- ship is fitting for New South Wales. Monday.— Sailed the Zealous, of 74 guns, Rear- Admi- ral Sir Samuel Hood, Capt. Boys ; Norge, of 74 guns, Capt. Raieier ; Resistance, of 38 gun-, Capt. Adam ; Are- thu « a, of 36 guns, Capt. Mends ; and Hope sloop.— Ar- rived the Defender gun- vessel. On Monday a special County Court was holden at the Castle, for " the purpose of electing a Representative of this county in Parliament, in the room of the late Sir Henry Mildmay, Bart. The forms of opening the Court having keen gone through, Sir Nathaniel Holland recommended Mr. Heath* eote to the freeholders, a- a gentleman qualified by his rank, fortune, connections, and indapendent spirit, for the honourable situation ' hev were about to till up. Sir Charles Rich seconded this nomination. Mr. Herbert objected to Mr. Heathcote, that being al ready Member for Klechingly, in Surrey, and it not being possible for him to vacate that = eat during the recess, be could not accept of the representation of the county, if elected. Ijfe should therefore protest against his election, Mr. Todd presented a protest against the election of Mr. Heatheote, signed by himself arid several other freeholders, containing the same objections as had been urged by Mr. Herbert. Mr. Bigg With » r said he did not object to the High Sheriff's receiving that or any other paper, but he re- minded that gentleman that he had no jurisdiction to try the que- tion. He said Mr. Heathcote was fortified by ' lie lest legal opinions that by accepting the Chiltern Hun- dreds he had vacated his seat for Bletchinglv, and was eli- gible to take his seat for the county ; but to prevent Mr. Herbert from obtaining the representation of the county with an inferiority of votes, he should propo- e another gentleman for their choice, and accordingly he did propose Sir John Pollen ; which nomination was regularly se- conded. Some further argument then took place between Mr. Herbert and M- Heathcote; after which the Sheriff called for the sense of the meeting by a shew of hats ; and it being decidedly in favour of Mr. Heathcote, Mr. Her- bert demanded a poll. Sir John Pollen said, he had no wish . nor pretension to represent the county, but to prevent Mr. Herbert from stealing in. Mr. Herbert said, there was nothing in his conduct to warrant this expression. He had acted fairly and openly in every way.— Sir John Pollen explained. Mr. Rose said, Mr. Herbert must be acquitted of any dishonourable intention in the present occasion, aud in- deed he thought him incapable of a dishonourable act. But with regard to Mr. Heatheote's eligibility, if any one thing was better established than another, it was that the accepting of the Chiltern Hundred vacated his seat. It had frequently been so decided by Parliament, and the usage of Pa^ iament. was the law of Parliament. Mr. Portall replied, that before the Speaker issued a new writ on a vacancy occasioned by the acceptance of an office, he required some proof that the office had been accepted. As the House wa= not sitting, this proof could not be given, the writ for Bletchinglv could not be issued; and the vacating of Mr. Heathcote's seat had not been completed. Mr. Barham maintained the same opinion ; and said that he had frequently moved for writs on the acceptance of the Chiltern Hundreds, which he had once accepled him- self, and the Speaker uniformly demanded an assurance of the acceptance. Mr. Ro e averred that the Speaker had never called for such proof within his recollection ; and he did not think it probable that a Committee of the House of Commons would undo what Parliament had been doing, for a century past. It was then agreed that an adjournment should take place, anil the poll c immence on the morrow. It was afterwards resolved by Mr. Heatheote's friends to re t the success of hiscause on the decision of a Committee of the House of Commons, and Mr. Herbert agreeing, for the same purpose, that Mr. Heathcote should poll double his number, when the poll opened on Tuesday 42 votes were taken for Mr. Heathcote, and 31 for Mr. Herbert. The Sheriff then returned Mr. Heathcote duly elected. On Saturday was married, at Eling, by the Rev. Mr- Phillips, Mr. Joseph Bishop, miller, of Fontmell, in Dorsetshire, to Maria, youngest daughter Of Mr. Lane, of Han < er Ftjrm. On Thursday die I, at her house in Southampton, the Dowager Lady Shelley. Her Ladvship was widow of the Right Hon. Sir John Shelley, Bart, of Michel- grove, in Sussex, after whose death she was married to Dr. Stuart, of Southampton. Died, on thi 11 tip inst. at West Cowes, in the 73d year of his age, Mr. Joseph Harrington, a wor- thy and respectable inhabitant, and a gottl father and friend ; many years master of the Vine Inn. On Tuesday died, at Lynwood, near Ringwood, much respected, aged 6l, Mr. William Large, for- merly of Oxford- street, London. The Prisoners in the County Gaol and Bridewell return their most grateful thanks to Thomas Freeman H » athcote, E< q. for a donation of five Guineas to the former place and three to the latter. On Tuesday morning, as Mr. Thomas Richards was en- deavouring; t o draw the sluice in the River Itchen, to bring up his barge, he unfortunately slipped in and was drowned. He has left a wife and two children to lament his lass. He was buried by the Winchester Volunteers with roilitaiy honours.— And on Wednesday morning, as another barge was coming up from Northam, near Wood- mills, laden with loo= e oats, by some accident she sunk, and the Master, & c. narrowly escaped being drowned. John Horloek, of the parish of Sopley, aged 17, » nd John Reading, of the parisb of Titchbourne, aged 02, were discharged, cured, from the County Hospital al Winchester, on Wednesday last, after having undergone the operation for the stoile. The stone extracted f. ura the former weighed one ounce and si* drams; that from the latter two ounces and five drams. SIR, To the EDITOR of the Salisbury Journal. In your Paper of December 5, having rather mis- stated what passed between Mr. Heathcote and myself on the day of the Hampshire Nomination, you will doubtless be glad to rectify the error by publication of the inclosed correspondence.— I am, Sir, your obedient Servant, J. FOSTER BARHAM. STOCKBRIDGF., Dec. IS, 1808. Stiff To Thomas Freeman Heathcote, Esq. In the last Salisbury Paper, what passed between us on the day of your nomination has beep stated in a way I presume must be as lit tie agreeable to you as it is to myself, being incorrect ; and though we may neither of us be disposed to attach much importance to Newspaper reports, yet as this Account is given as if it came from authority, it is not quite unworthy of notice. To the Question I put to the Candidates ( which is also not accurately stated,) you are said to have replied, " that to such a Question as this the only Answer you should give was, & c. Sc. &<:." Now, Sir, I confess I did not understand you to apply the De- claration you subsequently made to mv question at all; in this however I may be mistaken, but I am confident you did not do so in any terms that could imply any im- propriety in that question. My Question was put with the freedom that became me in my situation, and with the respect that was due to your's. I am satisfied your Answer was correspondent to that respect, and that if it has been otherwise represented, you will have pleasure in correcting the error by the same channel through which it was conve ed.— I have the honour to be, & c. & e. & c. & c. a ( Signed) J. F. BARHAM. WEYMO TH, Dec. 8, 1808. To J. Foster Barham, Esq. M. P. Stochbridge. SlH> ove I must, - gret that, owing to my having taken an unexpected j uiney to London, your Letter did not reach me soon enough to receive an early answer.— I have never authorised any kind of Statement of the Proceedings at the Hampshire Nomination in the public Papers, nor have I ever seen that to which you allude in the Salisbury Journal. I can therefore only repeat, as nearly as I can recollect, the words I used in replying to the Questions you proposed to the Candidates that day. To the first, respecting the Con- vention of Cintra, I replied that I felt it impossible to de- cide how I should act upon a subject still under discussion and investigation;— to the second Question, respecting the right of the subject to petition the Throne, I replied that no man in the, kingdom could be more convinced of that right than myself.— This was the purport of what I Said, and I believe nearly in the same words; I have therefore to add, that I should feel infinite concern to appear want- ing in proper respect to any gentleman merely because he i, politically opposed to me.— I have the honour to be, Sir, Your obedient humble Servant, THOMAS FREEMAN HEATHCOTE. LONDON, Dec. 16, 1808. SALISBURY. MONDAY, DECEMBER 26, 1808. The five East Indiamen, which sailed from Ports- mouth on the 10th of June, have again been heard of. They entered the Indian Ocean, all well, on the 13th of September. The weather, during the whole voyage, had been remarkably fine, and not the least accident had happened to any one of the ships. On that day spoke the American ship Egeria, from Cal- cutta to New York, which gave them the agreeable intelligence of the capture of the Picdmontaise. On Monday the West Wilts Volunteers, com- manded by Colonel Penruddocke, assembled at Hin- doo, and were sworn in as Local Militia. On Tuesday last the Remains of the Right Hon. Henry Lord Arundell, eighth Baron of Wardour, were deposited in the Vault beneath theChapel of Wardour. The funeral service was solemn and impressive..— His Lordship was born March 31, 1740; succeeded his late father in his honours Sept. 21, 1756; married May 31, 1763, Mary Christina, daughter and sijle heiress of Benedict Conquest, of Irnham Hall, in the county of Lincoln, Esq. and by her had issue Mary Christina ( since deceased), late wife of the Right Hon. james Everard now Lord Arundell, and Eleanors, the wife of the Right H09. Charles Lord Clif- ford.— By his Will he has devised the whole of his very improvable etsates to his Lady, subject to the payment of bis debts, directing that the same should be paid with in- terest at 5 per cent, from the time of his decease.

On MARIA'S winning the SILVER Ctr, at the ILSLEY COURSING MEETING, NOV. 9, 1808. To William Cobbett, Esq. O for thy flowret's, May! to deck In brilliant wreaths Maria's neck : The blushing rose, the jasmine fair, The heart's- ease gar, should mingle there. Rut chill November's dreary day Has chased each blooming flower away ; The sad arbutus, drooping pale, And bending to the wintry gale, Or laurestinus, modest flow'r ! Alone survive the cheerless hour. Then round her neck of jetty bue Entwine the band of heavenly blue> Colour of Triumph! to proclaim Maria's deeds, Maria's fame. And ne'er, Maria! Greyhound true Like thee o'er hill and valley flew; And ne'er like thine, on Haley's plain, Could dauntless spirit vanquish pain.. Fresh and unhurt thy rivfils stood, Thy wounded feet all bath'd in blood; But when the destin'd prey was found Those little feet scarce felt the ground, Chased thy poor victim like the wind, And left each far- famed dog behind. In vain the fated quarry flies, Her death decides the envied prize; Loudly th' assembled crowd proclaim My own Maria's well- earn'd fame, And round her neck of raven hue They twine the band of Victor Blue.
