A* Commodore Hamilton, who is at anchor before Napoli di Romano, has several times openly taken the part of the Greeks, the intelligence has excited a sen- sation here tlj& t it would be difficult to describe. This was still more increased by the information which was received at the same time, that the North American squadron, so long announ- ced by the Greeks, lias arrived off Hydras, and has take'u pos* session of the island of Pprros (?.), situated opposite to Hydra.

" TRIESTE, SEPT. 11.— According to accounts from Zante of the 25th August, Deputies from Greece, one of whom is the son of Admiral Miauli, had arrived there. They are going with passports from Commodore Hamilton, and from the Lord High Commissioner, Sir William Adams, to England, in order to solicit its protection. Commodore Hamilton is said to have ad- vised the Greeks, previously to this, in case of extreme necessity, to hoist the English or- the Ionian flag."— Allgemeine Zeitung, Sept. 18. CITY OF DURHAM, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30. In our p.- qier of the 10th inst., we noticed the then existing panic in the money market bf the metropolis, which tvas ascrib- ed by nearly all the London Journalists, to the conduct of the Bank of England ill contracting its issues— and we ventured to express our dissent frpm the conclusions of these somewhat too presuming leaders of public opinion. The proceedings at the General Court of Proprietors of Bank Stock, held on Thursday week, prove that we were correct 5 aud that the Bank had no- thing to do with the fall of tile funds, and the alarm that exist- ed at the Stack Exchange. The amount of bank notes in cir- culation is only about £ 400,000. less than it was last year; there lias been very little increase or decrease in the sale of Ex- chequer Bills; the amount of advances on mortgage does not exceed £ 1,400,000.; and that of advances on Stock is very trivial. In short, in the words of the Governor, ( C. Buller, Esq )—" The Court of Directors have gone through tlieir busi- ness regularly an:! quietly, iu a steady and silent manner, witb- i ut listening to evil or good[ lreport;" and " whatever fluctuation has prevailed,. lias. not been owing to any conduct" of that body. As we at all times , prefer T- ACTS to THEORY, these statements liave been gratifying to us in two points of view : first, as shew- ing that the opinion we expressed as to the cause of the certain-, ly extraordinary appearance of the money market was a correct one; and secondly, as they afford an additional proof of the un- conclusiveness of those abstract notions which the dabblers in political economy endeavour to disseminate with so much zeal and pertinacity; and which We have always derided, as utterly inapplicable, to the lidtieril state of tilings, however admirable they may appear when put upon paper— or however well adapted they may be to some Utopian system, under which the intercourse between man and man will be regulated by a skilfully contriv- ed machinery, which will obviate all those evils and disasters that are now continually recurring, either from the ever- varying taste and caprice of the human disposition— from the visitation of the elements— or any other cause " human or divine." As all sub- lunary affairs will then be conducted with the regularity of Clock. work, on principles which cannot be controverted, why then the doctrines of the political economists may be called into practice with some effect—- and not till then. At last, the question relative to the dissolution of Parliament is finally settled, and it will not take place this year. Mr Can- ning's influence in the Cabinet has triumphed ;— the statements iu the London Journals, relative to the Cabinet being unani- mous on ihe subject, arc not entitled to confidence;— and we confess we feel any sentiments but those of pleasure at the re- sult. We need not repeat the opinions stated in our journal of the 17th lust., to shew why we are thus animated ; and we have uo doubt, all who love " the- Constitution, the whole Con- stitution, and nothing but the Constitution," will feel as we do. We deprecate, as milch as any one can do, that excitement of party spirit, which would undoubtedly have taken plafa if an election had now occurred—( and which will take place, let it co ne when it will);— but the men are to blame for exciting it who would remove the good old land- marks of the Constitution, and not those who seek to preserve thein. lVe are not the as- sailants ; we do not seek to disturb any man in the possession of liis legal privileges, civil or religious;— but we will never tamely see those privileges put in jeopaidy by a false LIBERALITY,— which would concede every thing to noise and clamour, and disregard the claims of patient endurance,— without raising our voice against the suicidal attempt; and though we may, perhaps, fail in stemming that torrent of innovation which, in a few years, will leave us nothing but tho prized remembrance of those ve- nerable and excellent institutions, which were once our trust and glory— at least, the satisfaction will be ours, of having done our duty. • '• The accounts from Buenos Ayres to the 16th of July are of a nature to cause us to apprehend hostilities between more than two of the states of South America, unless tbe presence of Sir Charles Stuart should cause a more judicious policy to be adopt- ed by the Eiuperor of Brazil. In addition to the dispute with Buenos Ayres, relative to the Banda Oriental and Monte Video, a war with Peru is apprehended. The Emperor of Bra- zil has occupied the province of Chiquitos, in Upper Peru, with his troops, and General Silva wrote a very insolent letter to General Sucre, informing him, that that province was hence- forth to be united with Brazil. The Peruvian, in consequence, has threatened, not merely to drive the Brazilians from Chiqui- tos, if they do not quietly evacuate it, but also to carry the war into Brazil itself. On the 11th of July, the Government of tho province of Buenos Ayres, which had been provisionally Charged with the Executive Government, addressed a note to the Chamber of Representatives, requesting to be relieved from those functions, as the affairs of the province required their whole attention. This request was not complied, with. Up to the last dates, the m- gpeiations between the Govornment and the Brazilian Admiral had ptoduced no effect, as the'powers of the latter were questioned. ' Tile former had, however, disclaimed the imputation of having caused tho insurrection in the Banda Oriental; and added, that as the state of that country would not be indifferent to Buenos Ayres, that the government had re. solved, from the moment of its installation, to send an especial mission to Rio Janeiro, in order finally to determine the rela- tions between that republic and Brazil. This step would be accelerated by the late events. The Paris Papers of Saturday last Contain the following ar- ticles connected with the affairs of Greece: — " ZANTE, SEPT. - 1 1!)' the last news we have from the Morea, it appears that the affairs of the Greeks have taken a good turn. They have attacked Nisi and Calamata, and des- troyed there more that} , 1200 Arabs* Hussein Bey, sent with 10J0 men from Tripolizza on a foraging expedition, has been killed, and his corps utterly, defeated. Tile Turks have l'ost several boats at Missolonghi, and four ships of war, which the Greeks have burned. The Captain Pacha lias been obliged to raise the blockade which had been formed before this place. The land troops had tried an attack, in which they had been com- pletely overthrown. " TRIESTE, SEPT. 13.— The Greek Deputies who are going to Loudon to claim the protection of the King of Great Britain, have arrived at Zante; they will iorttinue their journey with the passports of the Lord Comiliissioner and Commodore Hamilton. The Greek Admiral, Sachtury, has set sail for Alexandria, to block up there a squadron which is going to carry fresh rein- forcements to Ibrahim Paella." The following are extracts from the German Papers : — " CONSTANTINOPLE, AUGUST 22— The Porte lias received very alarming news from tlie Archipelago, which, being most *„* Some advertisements not requiring immediate insertion, as well as several articles of intelligence which have reached us, are unavoidably postponed from Want of room. OPENING OF THE STOCKTON AND DARLINGTON RAILWAY. The fotmal opening of that stupendous work, which effects a communication between the port of Stockton and the coal, field in the interior parts of this county, took place oil Tuesday- Ias » , agreeably to the notice which has of late appeared in our columns. The Weather was most propitious. So early as half- past five o'clock in the morning, a number of waggons, fitted up with seats for the reception of strangers, and others for the workmen, were fully occupied, and they proceeded ( drawn by horses) along the Railway, from Darlington towards the permanent steam- engine, situate below Brusselton Tower. About the same time in the morning, several of the members of the Railway Company and their friends set eut in post- chaises and other carriages towards the same point, near to which it had been determined the procession for Stockton should be formed. These latter drove to West Auckland, where a scene of gaiety and bustle was witnessed, surpassing, perhaps, any thing that ever occurred in that place before. Gentlemen's carriages, post- chaises, gigs, jaunting Cars, waggons, and carts, filled with com- pany, were seelt entering the village from all directions, while equestrians, mounted oil spirited steeds, and others on broken- down hacks and stupid donkies, added to the general effect, which Was still further increased by a vast concourse of pedes- trians, who pressed forward, eager to behold a sight altogether new in that part of the country. About 8 o'clock, 13 waggons, 12 of them laden with 2 tons of coal each, and the other with sacks of flour, the whole cover- ed with people, were drawn up the inclined plane at Brusselton in admirable style, amidst the cheers of assembled thousands. This inclined plane is 3,000 yards, or above a mile and a half long yet, by means ol the ttvo powerful steam- engines, erected at its top, ( each being of 30- horse power) the waggons with their immense load were drawn up in 8 minutes, by a patent rope, in one piece, which extends the whole length. These engines drew forth expressions of admiration from every one who in spected them, so beautiful is their construction, and so complete- ly'did they execute their- work. After remaining a short time at the top of the inclined plane, the waggons descended the other side of the hill from the permanent engine, and took their station An the level below, whence the procession was to. set out. A considerable time, of necessity, elapsed before the arrangements could be completed, aud the numerous company accommodated with seats, ( although tickets had been liberally given, appoint- ing their possessors to the different waggons), and the hour of ten arrived before all was ready for a start. About this time the locomotive engine, or steam- horse as it was more generally termed, gave 14 note of preparation" by some heavy aspirations, whiji'll seemed to excite astonishment and alarm among the " Johnny Raws" who had been led by curiosi- ty to the spot, and who, when a portion of the steam was let off, ( led in affright, accompanied by the old women and young children who surrounded them, under the idea,- we suppose, that some horrible explosion was about to take place ; they af- terwards, However, found courage sufficient to return to theii posts, but only to fly again when the safety- valve was opened Every thing being now arranged, tbe welcome cry of '' all ready" was heard, and the engine and its appendages moved forward in beautiful style, and in tile following order :— The Company's Locomotive Engine. The Engine's Tender, with water and coals. Five waggons, laden with coals, one with flour, and one con- taining surveyors, engineers, & c. The Committee and other Proprietors, in the coach belong- ing to- the Company,* Six waggons, with strangers. Fourteen waggons, with workmen and others. Six waggons, laden with coals. The whole of the above were attached to the Locomotive Engine. Then followed 24 waggons filled with workmen aud otheis, drawn by horses. Flags with the following inscriptions were displayed on four of the waggons: — , 1st. A large white flag, inscribed—" Stockton and Darling- ton Railway opened for publicise, 27th September, 1825 Periculam Privatum Utilitas Publ- ica." Beneath this inscrip- tion a landscape was painted, having in the foreground a repre- sentation of the Locomotive Engine drawing several wantrons o o so - ol coals. 2d. A flag inscribed—" Periculum Privatum Utilitas Pub- lico," which may be rendered into English thus— Private Hist far Public Utility. 3d". " Prosperity to the Stockton and Darlington Railway.: some accident must happen, for it was found to be quite impos- sible to restrain the enthusiasm of the multitude. These fears were unfortunately but too well founded, for a keelman named John Stevens, who clung for Borrid time to the Waggon immedi- ately in front of the coach, at length stumbled and fell, and one of the wheels of the coach passed over One of bis feet, which was dreadfully crushed,- and it is believed amputation must be resort- ed to to save his life. On reaching the Company's wharf at Stockton, a salute of 7 guns was fired, and the band, which had played a variety of tunes on tile way from Darlington, immedi- ately struck up " God save the King," which was followed by three times three Stentorian cheers. The members of the Com- pany and their friends then descended from the coach and wag- gons, and preceded by the band and the'men appointed to take charge of the waggons, ( each of Whom wore a blue ribband over the shoulder), walked ill procession two and two to the Town': House. It was ascertained that nearly TOO persons were in and upon the waggons attached to the locomotive engine, when it entered Stockton. Tlie distance from Brusselton engine to Stockton is twenty and a half miles, and the entire length of tbe line from Witton Park Colliery nearly 25 miles, being, we be- lieve, the largest Rail- road in the kingdom. The whole popu- lation of . the towns and villages within a few miles of the Rail- way, seemed to have turned out on this occasion, and we be- lieve we speak within the limits of truth, when We say that not I less than 40 or 50,000 persons were assembled to witness the proceedings of the day. THE DINNER. A very elegant dinner, was provided at the Town House, Stockton, for the Proprietors and their friends, and about 5 o'clock 102 gentlemen took their seats around the festive board. Thomas Meynell, Esq. of the Friar- age, Yarm, was in the chair, supported on his right by Win Wright, Esq. of Kelvedon, Es- sex, and on his left by William Thomas Salvin, Esq. of Crox- dale. The vice- chair was occupied by John Wilkinson, Esq., Mayor of Stockton. Immediately after the removal of the cloth, the Chairman proposed the health of the King, which being drunk, the band, stationed in an adjoining room, struck up " God save tile King." The next toast was " the Royal Family" followed by " Hail, Star of Brunswick" by tbe band. The following toasts were then given in succession : — Success to the Stockton and Darlington Railway," with three times three— Tune " the Railway." Duke of York and the Army."—" Duke of York's march." Duke of Clarence and the Navy."—" Rule Britannia." The Ladies," with three times three.—" Here's a health." " Custos Rotulorumof the County."—" Appropriate music." Lord Lieutenant of the County."—" Old Towler." " Members for the County," with three times three.—" Scots wha hae," & c. Members for the City," with three times three,— Appro- priate music. The other Peers and Members who supported the different applications of the Company to Parliament." The Mayor ar. d Corporation of Stockton," with three times three. The Mayor, in returning thanks for the honor conferred upon himself and the other Members of the. Corporation, begged to assure the Chairman and the company present, that every mea- sure calculated to improve the pott and trade of Stockton would at all times meet with the cordial support of that body. Great improvements, he observed, had of late years been made in the navigation of the river, and still greater improvements were in contemplation, which, if carried into effect, would be productive of - the greatest possible advantage to tbe port. A very complete survey had been made by a justly celebrated engineer, who had suggested two different plans to accomplish the desired object- one of these was, by tile erection of jetties in certain situations, the other by the cutting of a canal to pass close by Newport, which:, would shorten ' the distance between Stockton and the Tees Mouth about three miles, and enable vessels of 250 or 300 tons burthen. to come up to the staith of the Stockton and Dar- lington Railway Company. In alluding to these projected im- provements, he felt much, pleasure instating, that " the Tees Navigation Company," who, by Act of Parliament, were not permitted to receive more than 10 per cent, on their capital, were at present in the receipt of a surplus of from 7 to £ 800. a year, which they had liberally offered to pay over to the Com- missioners who might be appointed under any new act for car- rying the proposed cut or canal into effect. IApplause. J With- in the next month, he trusted they would see in the public papers a notice of ail intended application to Parliament, to enable them to carry the proposed improvements into execution, and in less than five years lie hoped to have the pleasure to meet the same company wdiom he now saw around him, in that room, to cele- brate the completion of the plan. ( I. pud applause. J The Chairman next proposed, " Success to the projected Li verpool and Manchester Railway," with three times three, which having been drank with great applause, Mr Hamper, of Bir- mingham, rose, and having expressed regret at ttie absence of bis friends, who had just left the room, said, lie should not fail to make known to them tbe kind wishes which the Chairman and the company had just expressed for the success of the Man- chester and Liverpool Railway. Much, lie observed, bad been said against rail- roads by those who were interested in canals, and much sophistry had been used to prejudice the public mind against them ; he however felt satisfied, that the triumph of art which lie had had the pleasure to witness on that day, would speedily dispel the clouds which had hitherto darkened the pros- pect. It had been an argument with those who opposed the introduction of rail- roads, through interested motives, that there is 110 necessity for them, canals answering every purpose for the transit of goods— that the present system is so excellent that we need no improvement. They, in fact, desire that the Book of Science shall be closed, considering that our present stock of knowledge is sufficient; and lie supposed they would have us send out and supersede Capt. Parry, and all others who ate engaged ill scientific . pursuits. But lie would say to such persons— the mind is not to be fettered, man is not to place a padlock on that gift of Providence; the old maxim, which they would still lay down, that the mind of man is not to travel beyond, Jhe circum- ference of his . wig, has long since exploded, and improvement, he trusted, would continue to advance with each succeeding year. He considered it kind in the company to express their sentiments id favor of the projected Birmingham, Manchester, The next toast was " the Plough, the Loom, and the Sail, 1 meneement of an export trade in coals from the river and may the Railway contribute to their prosperity," with three j Tees. times three, after which the Chairman gave " George Stephen- There are now resident in Redcar four fishermen, who son, Esq. the Company s surveyor, drank also with three tunes still regularly go to sea for the purpose of taking lobsters and crabs, whose united ages amouht to 310 years. Their NNMOE T.- L — 1. • . .1 ,, - , M, three and loud plaudits. ( Mr Stephenson, who had been pre- sent most of the evening, had quitted the room before liis health was drank.) Mr Meynell now left the chair, and the Mayor was loudly called upon to succeed him in that honourable post; the com- pany were thus kept together for some time afterwards, but all finally separated before 11 o'clock. The dinner and wines were excellent, and^ the dessert com- prised all tbe choicest fruits in season. The yvhole proceedings of the day ( save and except the acci- dents we have mentioned) gave general satisfaction, and we know that some persons who previously entertained a prejudice against railways, and particularly against locomotive engines, have en- tirely changed their sentiments from having witnessed the pro- cession on Tuesday.- - A great number of carriages and horses were on the road near to Yarm aiid close to the railway, yet We did not observe that the horses were much alarmed with tlie noise or appearance of tile engine. A windmill by the side bf a turnpike road is, we conceive, quite as likely to frighten horses. On Wednesday last, pursuant to advertisement, a show of eattle took place at Stockton upon Tees, which was at- tended by an immense number of gentlemen, farmers, gra- ziers, & c. who came from a distance of many miles, so great was the interest excited on the occasion. The cattle shewn for the sweepstakes were of the very first class, and did very great credit to the breeders. It is hoped that this show is but the prelude to the establishment of a Cattle Market in Stockton, which will rival those of known celeb- rity, and increase the agricultural fame of the neighbour- hood. Nearly a hundred gentlemen sat dowa (^ dinner at the Town Hall, John Wilkinson, Esq. Mayor, Ui tbe Chair, supported on his right by the judges ( Mr Heslop1, Mr' JaeR-' son, and Mr Willis), and on his left by C. Masoti, Esq. The greatest harmony and conviviality prevailed in the meeting, which was kept up until a late hour. A number of subscribers bave already entered their names for the sweepstakes of 1826. The following are the names of the successful Candidates:— Mr T. Robinson, of Marsh- house, Cleveland, first for the cow; Mr Thornton, of Barmpton, second for do. ,* Mr Crofton, of Holywell, Durham, first for the two- year- old heifer in calf; Mr Parrington, of Mid- dlesbrough, Cleveland, second for do.; John Hutchinson, Esq. of Stockton, first for the one- year- old heifer; Mr John Robinson, near Borougbridge, second for do. ;' John Hut- chinson, Esq. of Stockton, first for the bull; Mr Buston, of Coatham Stob, first for the mare for breeding coach horses; Mr H. Cass, of Acklam, second for do.; Mr Far- row, ofDrummondby, first for the shearling tup; Mr Jack- son, of Stockton, first for the boar; Mr Robinson, of Marsh- house, first for the sow; Mr S. Langdale, of Man- dale, secdild for do.; Mr Bamlett, of Haverton Hill, first for the tup lamb.:— The first horse fair ever held in Stock- ton also took place on the above day, when several excel- lent animals were exhibited. The new butcher market at Stockton was opened for public use on Wednesday last. When the Mayor, who had been principally'instrumental in rearing the building, ap- peared insthe market, he was received by the butchers with three cheers. The Mayor, Aldermen, and Committee of Management dined together at the Town Hall yesterday, to celebrate the opening of the new shambles, and in the evening the workmen, amounting to about 100, were treat- ed with a supper, which was served up in the new building. 4th. « May the Stockton and Darlington Railway give pub- ' d Liverpota luilway ,* nd l, e should be glad to'meet then, at' if cariernftmu on/ i rougri lie ilinrn ivrixt- mt/,,.. " I • ' ' u ... lie satisfaction, and reward Us- liberal promoteis.' The scene, on the moving of the procession, sets description at dcfiance; the welkin rang wilh loud huzzas, while tho happy faces of some, the vacant stare of others, and the alarm depicted on the countenances of not a few, gave variety to the picture. Astonishment, however, was not confined to the human species, for the beasts of the field and the fowls of the air seemed to view with wonder and aw- e the machine, which now moved on- ward at the rate of 10 or 12 miles all hour, with a weight of not less than 80 tons attached to it. A number of gentlemen mounted on well- trained hunters, were seen in the fields on both sides of the railway, pressing forward o'er hedges and ditches, as though they were engaged, in a fox chace, yet tiiey could Hot at this time keep up with the procession. One of the waggons having, soon afterwards, slipped off the rail- road, owing to a defect in its wheels, some little delay took place, and this having occurred a second time, the faulty waggon was removed out of the line, in effecting which a man, who was standing near, re- ceived a somewhat severe, though Accidental, blow ou tile side, as it was turned off into a passing track. A further delay of more than half an hour was occasioned by some oakum bavin) got into the fc4d- pump of the engine, after which the procession i aiUjrcled! 11 inning!:,- nil, when, as Chairman of the Company, he should preside on the opening of that rail- road. The people of Bir-. raingbam, he knew, were accused of many imitations, yet lie assured them that they know not what counterfeit hospitality is. f £ oud applause. J ' The Coal Trade," with three times three, was next given from the Chair, which being drank, the band played the popular tune " Wecl may the Keel row." " The Tees Navigation Company." The Mayor now rose, and begged to propose the health of a gentleman w. lio had been most anxious to promote the under- taking, the completion of which they had that day met to cele brate, and who had always been ready to forward every mea- sure, which tended to . benefit the neighbourhood in which he lived— he meant their worthy Chairman. The toast was drank Willi three times three. The Chairman, in returhing thanks, said, be was greatly obliged to the; Company for the honour they bad done him, and. to the Mayor he felt particularly indebted. For any exertion he had made in favour of the Railway, he felt amply repaid by the prospects of success which the proceedings of that day had moved forward towards Darlington,, which it reached about I £ o'clock, there llping at. that time in and on the Waggons to the Loconlojtiiie Engine ( part of which, as we hav& before stated, were loaded-, with coals, & c.) no less than 553 persons. The crowds wllieh. had been w itnessed iu progress towards Dar- lington, seetnied to be almost forgotten when the procession ap- proached that tbw'ii, there, being not less, we suppose, than 10 or 12,000 persons, there assembled, who gave vent to their feel- ings by loud ami reiterated cheers. The boiler of the locomotive engine was replenished with water - from " the Company's reservoir, near Darlington,' and stoppage of half an hour, or upwards, in - consequence took place.; Six of the. waggons- laden with coals,' and twenty- foiir with workmen, here separated from the others, and proceed, ed down the branch to the town of Darlington, wlieie the coafs were distributed to the poor, and tire workmen- entertained with dinner'and ale. The remainder of the procession, comprising six waggons of coals, one waggon of flour, the Company's coacli, twenty waggons containing: strangers and workmen, and Mr Meynell's band, of music, occupying two waggons, the whole' drawn by the locomotive engine, proceeded onward, followed by s& iie oilier waggons drawn by horses, and filled'with com-, paii'ft towards Stockton, which they reached ( after taking in a fyti till*' supply of water at Goosepool), ' about a quarter before four o'cVdck. ' As the procession approached Stockton, a most lively scene presented- itself to those who occupied the Coach and wag- gons, tile bridge anil the neighbouring roads and fields being literally crowded with spectators, who testified their satisfaction by approving shouts, and by the' waving . of hats and handker- chiefs. The crowd upon the railway in the immediate vicinity of the town was alarmingly great, The road beyond that al- lotted to the waggons being very narrow, and the engine and Its appendages moving on the descent at the rate of 15 or 16 miles an hour, the most serious apprehensions were entertained that * This coach,, named " The Experiment," Is fitted up on the principle of what are called the long- coaches,: tire passengers sitting face to face along; the sides of- it. It is calculated to carry 16 or IS inside, and i;-> intended to travel daily l'or public accommodation betw een Uaiiinytuu and Stockton, The Lead Trade, and other Mining Interests of the Coun- ty," with three times three. \ " The absent Members of the Railway Company," with three times three.— Tune, " Should auld acquaintance be forgot?" ' I'he Chairman in introducing the next toast, " The Solicitors to the Railway; Company," expressed bis regret that both were absent, one froiii indisposition, ( Mr llaisbeck had a short time before left the room in consequence of illness,) and having paid a well merited compliment to both, proposed— " Success to the Leeds and Hull Railway," with three times three. A gentleman; connected with the projected undertaking, whose name we could not learn, returned thanks. lie considered that facility of communication by- means of railways liad beep fully established by tile experiment of to- day, and lie trusted that - the- spirited promoters of'the Stockton and Darlington Railway would find their reward iii'ati increase of commerce and population. ( Applause.] ( A gentleman present now offered to purchase any number of shares; - at a premium of £ 20. ; another gentleman said he'd give £ 30.) ' The next toast- was " the- Coal Owners of the district who are connected with the Stockton and Darlington Railway," With three, times three. Mr George Dixon-, of Bishop- Auckland, iti behalf of himself and the other coal proprietors returned thanks. lie felt satis- fied that if the railway proprietors and the shipping company would go hand- iii- liand, the town of Stockton must derive very important advantages from the communication now opeiied with the collieries, and he doubted not that ill a short time it might compete with Newcastle and Sunderland, as a shipping port for coals. Much would of course depend on the charges made by the Railway Company, and he would caution them against fet- tering tho trade. If tlieir charges were moderate, he did not despair to witness the overthrow of the monopoly of the Tyne aud Wear, and to see Stockton rival Newcastle aud Sunderland • in the coal trade. ( Applause.) Mi* Thomas Parker, formerly of Sunderland, but now of Liverpool, has presented £ l. Is. to the Sunderland Dis- pensary. On Sunday last, after an excellent sermon by the Rev. Charles V. Vernon, M. A., Rector of Rothbury, Northum- berland, preached in Bishopwearmouth Church, the sum of £ 16. 18s. Oid. was collected in aid of the funds of the Sub- scription and Sunday Schools, established in that parish on the Madras system. On Sunday last, after a sermon by the Hon. and Rev. Edward Grey, A. M. Rector of Whickhain, at all Saints, Church, Newcastle, the sum of £ 61. Os. 4kl. was collected in aid of the erection of a building in that town for the re- ception of poor married women lying- in. The Rev. E. S. Thurlow has made a present of a collec- tion of useful books to the Mechanics' Institute at lkiugh- ton- le- Spring, and also adonation of two pounds in money. The owners of Willington Colliery have presented a keel of coals to the Newcastle Infirmary. On Sunday the 25th ult. an interesting and gratifying scene was witnessed in the Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, Stockton, when the examination of the children belonging to the Sunday School connected with that place of worship took place. Mr W. Dawson, a popular local preacher from the neighbourhood of Leeds, delivered two sermons on the occasion. The natural eloquence and pathos of the preach- er, the appearance of the children, and the deep solemnity of overflowing congregations, conspired to raise feelings in many bosoms of no ordinary description. The collections amounted to upwards of £ 30. St George's chapel, Villiers- sti'eet, Bishopwearmouth Sunderland, is now, we understand, nearly finished; and will very soon be opened for public worship. The members of the old church in Robinson's Lane, by whom it is erect- ed, were admitted last week to select their pews and seats. They have already engaged almost the whole of the. gallery and seats below, leaving for the accommodation of others, who may be desirous of joining the congregation, only a few of the best pews in the middle area, which are now let- ting at an annual rent to the first that apply. This chapel is connected with the Established Church of Scotland; and, by its deeds and constitution, is bound to adhere to the doctrines, forms, and discipline of that National Church. Accordingly, its Pastor, or Clergyman, must always be a man educated at one of the four Scottish Universities, licensed by some Presbytery in Scotland, regularly ordained, and qualified by the usual oaths of Government: besides whom, there must also be Elders, chosen from among the people and ordained to their office, whose duties are to assist the Minister in dispensing the sacraments and in all matters of ecclesiastical government and discipline, and privately to exhort the people, and pray with them when such services are required : and Deacons, who have the management of all temporal concerns, and to whom is specially entrusted the oversight of the poor members. All these offices, we learn,. are to be distinctly maintained in this chapel; and to complete its arrangements, as a Scots' Church, there is also to be an every- day school, for the common brandies of education, taught in one of the large vestries by a qualified master, under the authority and inspection of the Consistory or Session, as the parochial schools in Scotland are. But with these arrangements completed, it utterly disclaims every thing like opposition to the English Church, assuming only the same footing here which the English Episcopal Chapels have on the other side of the Twgedj. and ptomi- ies^. to be a great advantage to thole whoso attachments are Formed to the Presbyterian mode pf worship. . ,- The Marquess and Marchioness of Londonderry and suite arrived at Wynyard on Sunday last, from Doncaster. The Lady of Richard Wharton, Esq. late M. P. for this city, arrived here on Saturday evening last, and was greet- ed with a merry peal from the bells of St Nicholas and other parish churches. On the following morning, this respected lady received a similar compliment from the bells of the Cathedral. The Lord Bishop of Salisbury arrived in the College here, yesterday afternoon. The ringing of the Cathedral and other bells made known to the inhabitants the circum- stance of his Lordship's arrival. On Wednesday se'nnight, Prince Schwartzcnburgh and the Count Francois D'Harach, who have lately been on a visit to the Duke of Northumberland at Alnwick Castle, descended a coal pit at Howdon colliery, for the purpose o'f'examinihg the workings, with which they expressed them- selves much gratified. . Mr Charles Churnside, for upwards of 40 years employed in. the Post- offices of Newcastle and Durham, has been. ap- pointed Post- master of Gateshead. Mr- Charles Green made a second ascent with bis bal- loon, from York, on Tuesday last, and descended about 3 miles east of Selby, after a voyage of about an hour. The weather was delightful, and the spectators very numerous After Mr G. had attained a considerable elevation he sent down a parachute, to which was suspended a basket con- taining a cat, which descended very gradually into a field near the gas works, without injury to the animal. Mr Miles, of Yarm, has already ordered a cargo of coals to be shipped at Stockton for Holland. This is the corn- names are, Thomas Fleck, Christopher Burnicle, Thomas Walton, and William Greensides. > There is now living at Newbottle, a person named Thomas Freaker, whose age is 111 years! He is , by trade a cooper, and has worked at his business and enjoyed good health all his life, until within a few days past, " when he took to his bed. He says he seldom drunk any spirituous liquor, but always drunk freely of good ale. ! A goose, belonging to Mr Wm Newby, of Trinadon, has laid 14 eggs within the last three weeks, a very uousual cir- fumstance at this season of the year. ( Three very fine tups of the pure Leicester breed were Shewn in Stockton market on Wednesday last, and were generally admired. They were bred by Mr Parrington, of Middlesbro', in Cleveland. On Saturday last, Mr John Brown, baker, North Shields, in going up the stairs at the Lowlights, fell backwards, and 4 fractured his skull in so dreadful a manner, that lie instant- ly expired. , A horse was drowned, and his driver narrowly escaped- with his life, in attempting to pass the ford at Blackwell, near Darlington, on Wednesday se'nnight. The number of lives of men and horses lost at this place within the last , 8 or 10 years is almost incredible; and this frequency of accidents certainly calls aloud for the erection of a bridge over the Tees in that, neighbourhood. A cfeain- bridge _ might be thrown over at a moderate experice, and the tolk we have no doubt, would pay ample interest on the capitaf necessary to be- embarked. a-- v Yesterday, Martin and f hos Enimerson, of Birtley, were convicted before Robert Shaw and Wm Loraine, Esqrs. for breaking the door of the lock- up house at Birtley, and finect 10s. -~ d. each. Martin was committed to the County Gaol on default of payment. At the same time, Nicholas John- son, of Witton Gilbert, was fined 5s., for having destroyed some young trees belonging to J. G. Lambton, Esq. M. P.,. at Lanchester. The proprietor of the Morning, Chronicle has been heli to bail till the Sessions, for an alleged libel in that paper on Mr Martin, of Galway, which, as Mr Martin stated^ vnight tend to cause the Smithfield drovers, or other evil disposed persons, to murder him or do him some bodily harm. c Several of the newspapers announce the recent death of a man named Landy, at the age of 101, who ticy state " served under the great Duke of Marlborough." We are not aware that the body of his Grace was ever taken up - after interment, yet if Landy served under him, it mast have been in bearing his remains, as the celebrated warnior died in 1722, being 103 years ago !

LIFE PILLS, entirely vegetable, discovered by the Rev. C. CARRINGTON, Vicar of Berkeley, one of his Ma- jesty's Deputy Lieutenants, & c. for tbe county of Gloucester.— To alleviate the tortures of Spasm, Gout, Rheumatism, Cholic, and Nervous Affections, with superb success, by giving fresh life and energy to the efforts of nature, is not the only merit of CARRINGTON'S LIFE PILLS. On the same principle the bloom of health on the palest cheek. They strengthen the digestive organs and expel wind ; they cherish and prolong life in those debilitated by years orpleasure ; tliey restore the powers of imprudent youth ; and they prevent the attack of many fatal acute diseases, if resorted to on the first sensation of chill, pain, or morbid lassitude ; ou which account no person should ever be without them. A large portion of the human race is hurried to an untimely grave by Inflammations, Consumptions, & c. the effect of neglected colds; but a recent cold is so certainly cured by these Pitls, invigorating the torpid arteries of the skin, and there- by restoring tbe perspiration, that whoever throiys away his life by omitting them, dies little better than a suicide.

SIR,— Tn forwarding for insertion in your Paper a list pf subscriptions received since the last advertisement, I take the liberty to remind your readers, that the Society for promoting the enlargement and building of Churches and Chapels directs its funds and exertions to a class of objects whose necessities arc incapable of being provided for by - those grants of money which Parliament has made for the same excellent purpose. The Parliamentary Grants are applicable only to those parishes whose population exceeds 4000 persons ; tliose which fall short of that number belong, exclusively, to this Society, the wants and the merits of which are most respectfully, but very earnestly pressed upon the consideration of the Public. The merits of the Society will be sufficiently understood by a very brief statement of its proceedings. It has now been in operation for more than seven years, and by its exertions and aid it lias, upon an average, been the happy means of enabling up- wards of sixteen thousajid persons in each year to obtain a seat in their parish church; and during the whole period of its exist- ence it has conferred the same blessing upon no less than one hundred and thirteen thousand seven hundred and fourteen persons. The amount of spiritual good which it has thus silently and un- ostentatiously effected, it would be impossible to calculate, and it must be left to every pious mind to imagine it for itself. But it must not be omitted that of the increased accommodation in churches and cliapels, which has been thus procured, eighty- four thousand jive hundred and forty. eight sittings have been appropri- ated as free seats, open to the humblest and most indigent of our brethren in Christ, for the purpose of receiving instruction in the word of life, from the established Minister, and worshipping God in the pure and fervent prayers of otir Liturgy. It is only necessary to add, that those seats have been occupied with an eagerness and regularity which prove that tlie attachment of our people to religion and the Church is still vigorous and unaba- ted, wanting nothing but the power to shew itself. In prosecuting its pions designs, and securing this great amount of good, the Society has expended the comparatively pmall sum of £ 86,140. To meet continually increasing de- mands for assistance, to cases where the necessity is most pres- sing, the Society had in their possession, on the 15th May, 1825, a disposable balance of no more than £ 2,869. 10s. It is hence unhappily but too evident, that without additional and prompt support from the public, this Society must stop short in the full career of its usefulness, and leave undone that, which every one who is attached to the cause of true religion in the Church of England must be compelled to acknowledge to be one of the most desirable objects of benevolence in which be could engage. A new and necessary appeal is therefore now made to the friends of Christianity and the Church, sanctioned by a most gracious donation of £ 1000. from His Majesty, as a testimony of Hi* Majesty's sense of the value of the Society, and followed by donations for the third time, and of the most liberal description, from the many of the tried supporters of the Society, both among the Laity and Clergy. When it is considered, that for every guinea which has been subscribed, a free seat has been provided for a poor person for ever— a seat where he, and his children after him, may learn the knowledge of God and his duty, hear the pure doctrine of the Gospel, and obtain the blessings which are promised unto pray- er— it is very earnestly hoped, that your readers will not deem this an intrusive appeal to their piety and benevolence, but give to it that due and serious attention and support, which the abil- ity with which God has blessed them may enable them to afford and which an object at once holy and definite, at once good and practicable, seems so richly to merit and so greatly to want. I have the honor to be, Sir, your most obedient servant, W. JOHNSON RODBER. SOUTH AMERICA. The following details have been furnished by M.

Green- made a second trip in his balloon from this town on Tuesday last. The day was again propitious, and the crowds of people who gathered upon every elevated spot in the town and neighbourhood, evinced an unsated desire to witness the interesting spectacle. We are glad also to re- port that some recompense was made to the aeronaut for his labour and risk. The ground chosen for the second as- cent was the vacant plot of land between Fishergate and Friargate. from which Livingston ascended during the Guild. The area being large, a great number of persons were ad- mitted to an outer boundary at reduced prices; and the Committee of Gentlemen who had taken a lively interest for Mr Green, succeeded in bringing a respectable company to the inner circle. Before the aerial vessel took its full range in the boundless atmosphere, persons were taken up a short distance, and drawn down again by means of a rope attach- ed to the car. Several individuals, and amongst them some ladies, availed themselves of this opportunity to try the strength of their nerves in so unusual a situation. About four o'clock, the young female ( a Miss Blackburn, of this town), who had promised to be the companion of Mr Green in his excursion, was introduced to the ground. She was habited in a nankeen travelling dress, and perhaps from being gazed at by so many strangers, she appeared at first a little confused and abashed; but she soon recovered her self- possession, and when tho time arrived for entering the car, she displayed a becoming intrepidity, and took her scat with as little appearance of alarm, as she would on entering a common sailing packet. Mr Green was also per- fectly cool and collected, manifesting all the qualities re- quisite in a skilful and intrepid aeronaut. The balloon rose rapidly, and in about ten minutes was faintly seen through a light cloud; it then totally vanished, and in about twer minutes dropped again from the dense medium in which it had been lost. It seemed at this time to be falling rapidly, and the general expectation was, that the aeronauts were about to alight in the neighbourhood of Longrtdge, After continuing, however, a few minutes at a low altitude, the balloon was again observed to rise, and entering another cloud, became lost to the sight. We learn from Mr Green's own account of the ascent, that ail easy and safe descent was made in the township of Long Preston, a few miles south of Settle, about half an hour after the balloon ascend- ed. He arrived here with his fair companion, in a post chaise, at two o'clock on Wednesday morning; and on Monday goes to Carlisle, from which city he is to ascend on Wednesday or Thursday next. We understand that he has received encouragement to make an ascent from Blackburn, after his visit to Carlisle.— Preston Chronicle, Sept. 24. BALLOON ANECDOTE.— A few minutes previous to Mi- Green's descent with his balloon at the foot of Murton Pike on the 30th ult. an aged man and his feeble rib were at work in a clover field, the husband cutting down grass, the wife raking it together; but not pleasing him he bestowed upon her many of those epithets which form the discords of matrimonial life. Amongst other delicate expressions, he " wished the devil would fetch her;" at this identical mo- ment the balloon burst upon the astonished old woman's sight, close upon them, and she ejaculated " he's comen hooiver;" down went the rake, as suddenly followed the scythe, off they both scampered, for they verily believed it the devil indeed, and secreted themselves in the inmost re- cess of their cottage, taking care to bar out " auld clooty." The old man considers it a lucky escape, promises to keep a better tongue, and tbe old woman, we hope, will have a better life. Such is the force of conscience, which makes cowards of us all.— Kendal Chronicle. A similar accident to that which occurred last week in Portsmouth, happened about two years since in the Ply- mouth yard. A bridge at the end of the South or Basin Dock gave way, though, from the few persons passing, two onfy were drowned. The bodies of these unfortunate per- sons were taken up by Mr Smith, clerk of the works, who descended in the diving- bell. Yesterday morning, the 20th inst. about 6 o'clock, Francis Despard, Esq. of Killaghly Castle, whose activity and pub- lic services as a Magistrate are but too well known, was attacked by two assassins in his own shrubberies. It being his custom to visit a certain house in the shrubberies every morning at this hour, which must be known to the assassins on this morning, as, in the act of entering it, a shot was fired at him, which tore his coat close to his body; on turn- ing round and seeing a second man with a blunderbuss, Mr Despard darted in and closed the door, upon which the blunderbuss was discharged and seventeen bullets were driven through the door, which Mr Despard, thank God 1 escaped by inclining to one side; immediately he rushed out with a pistol, which he had the precaution to carry, in consequence of friendly and anonymous letters he lately re- ceived, when the assassin who had fired the blunderbuss missed fire at him with a pistol, and when in the act of making off; Mr Despard fired at him, when the villain drop- ped his pistol, which has since been found; from the quan- tity of blood that has been traced for three or four fields, it is considered he must be severely wounded. Mr Despard then returned to his house to procure arms for his men and a policeman that was there, when they went in pursuit, but in consequence of the wooded state of his demesne, the blood- thirsty villains unfortunately escaped. Mr Despard has sent the military and police to scour the country, in the hope that these villains may be found concealed or lurking somewhere in the neighbourhood, and the more particular- ly, as he would be able to identify the wounded man. The Insurrection Act, we fear, must again be adopted; the usual winter scenes are commenced; arms are yet in the hands of murderers from principle and habit; and such restrictions as are sufficient to keep the people in their homes between sunrise and sunset must, we fear, be enforced Clonmel Herald. Some itlea may be entertained of the quantity of beer drunk in the metropolis, from the fact of one house alone employing 60 drays and nearly 200 horses to carry it about. The will of the late Right Honourable William Lord Radstock, Baron of Radstock, in the county of Somerset, K. G. C. B., Admiral of the Red, was proved, with eleven codicils, in the Prerogative Court, Doctors' Commons, on the 12th Sept. by the oaths ofthe Right Hon. Granville Georjje Waldegrave Lord Radstock, his son, and the Hon. Sir James Allan Park, Knight, two of the executors, Sir Abraham Hume, Bart., the other executor, having renoun- ced the trust. The personal property is sworn under £ 80,000. Among other bequests there is fifteen guineas for a Family Bible, to Sir Allan Park, for his life only, and then to revert to the testator's family 1 HORSE DEALING.— The following curious fact occurred at the last Horncastle Fair. A tradesman went to the fair For the purpose of purchasing a horse; he soon found one likely to answer his purpose, which he tried and purchased for £ 51. In a short time he met a neighbour of his; " Thomas ( says he) I have bought a horse, but as I am not much of a judge, will you be so good as to look at him for me?" " With all my heart;" so they went to the stable. " John, you have not bought this horse, I expect." " But I have, and paid for him also." " Why ( says Thomas) he is blind!" which was the case. It would have been in vain to have returned the horse, as the jockey was not the most respectable, and had got the money ! But an idea struck him : lie went to the jockey and said he had either paid him £ 32. or lost a £\. note. The jockey insisted he had only received .-£ 31., and after some altercation laid down the money, saying, " Count it, that is just as you paid it me." John counted it, found it right, and then said, " the horse you sold me is blind; yon may fetch him back ag; in ; you have your horse, and I have my money." A letter from Botany Bay states that an edition of" Bai- ley's Dictionary" was put up atan auction. The auctioneer observed, it was a New Bailey. " I am glad of that, with all my heart," said a bidder," for most of vis have had enough ofthe Old one." AN AUTHENTIC ANECDOTE OF GEORGE WASHINGTON.— " In 1777, while the American army lay at Valley Forge, a good old Quaker, of the name of Potts, had occasion to pass through a thick wood, near Head Quarters. As he traversed the dark brown forest, he heard at a distance before him, a voice, which, as be advanced, became more and more fervid and interesting. Approaching with slowness and circumspection, whom should he behold, under a thickset bower, apparently form- ed for the purpose, but the Commander- in- Chief of the armies of the United States, on his knees, in an act of devotion to the Ruler of the Universe. At the moment when Friend Potts, who was concealed by the trees, came up, Washington was in- terceding for his beloved country, with tones of gratitude that laboured for adequate expression; he adored that exuberant good- ness, which, from the depth of obscurity, bad exalted him to the head of a great nation, and that nation fighting at fearful odds, for all Ibe world holds dear. He utterly disclaimed bis own ability for this arduous conflict. He wept at the thought of the ruin which his mistakes might bring on his country, and with a patriot's pathos spreading the interests of unborn millions be- fore the eye of Eternal Mercy, he implored the aid of that arm which guides the starry hosts! Soon as the General had finish- ed his devotions, Friend Potts retired. lie returned to his house and threw himself into a chair, by tho side of his wife, under the influence of feelings, which, for a time, refused him utterance. 1 Heigh !— heigh, Isaac !' said she, with tenderness,' thou seemest agitated; what is the matter ?' ' Indeed, my dear,' quoth he,' if I appear ngilated, ' tis no more than what I am. I have seen this day what I shall never forget. Till now I have thought that a Christian and a soldier wore characters incompatible with each other. But if George Washington be not a man of God I am indeed mistaken, and still more shall I be disappointed if God do not, through him, perform some great thing for his country.'"— American Paper. The ex pressed ju ice of an onion, or scallion, is said to be an instantaneous cure for the sting of a wasp. A SiNGur. Aa DISSOLUTION OF PARLIAMENT.— Upon the 10th of March, 1628, the day to which both Houses were adjourned, the King ( Charles I.) came to the House of Lords, and, without sending for the Commons, spake as followeth :— " MY LORDS— I never came here upon so unpleasant an occa- sion, it being a Dissolution of Parliament; therefore men may have some cause to wonder why I should rather not do this by Commission, it being rather a general maxim with Kings to leave harsh commands to their Ministers, themselves only exe- cuting pleasing things."— And then, after some further words, the King directed the Lord Keeper to dissolve the Parliament. The entry on the Lords' Journal is—" Ipse Do minus Re*, hoc presens l'arliamentum dissolvit." LONDON MARKETS. CORN EXCHANGE, FRIDAY, SEFT. 23 There have been but few fresh arrivals of Wheat since Monday, and the quality not being very fine, the trade is dull; what few tolerably fair samples appeared were taken off on quite os good tef ms. * Bar- ley, Beans, and Pease, are steady in value, and Oats fully sup- port Monday's prices, having a very short supply at market. MONDAY, SEPT. 26— The contrary state of the wind last week occasioned this market to receive short supplies of all de- scriptions of grain. There is a fair quantity of Wheat at mar- ket this morning, from Essex, Kent, and Suffolk; a good sup- ply of Barley and Pease, but not many Beans. There are se- veral vessels fresh up from the north with Oats. The samples of new Wheat come better in condition than of late, and such as are quite dry have obtaiued Is. to 2s. per quarter more, but there is not much doing in other qualities. Barley being plenti- ful is reduced Is. to 2s. per qr., but Beans remain as last quo- ted. Boiling Pease are 2s. to 3s. per qr. cheaper. Grey Pease are unaltered. Oats, of good quality, sell at tbe prices of last Monday, but other kinds are rather dull. Flour is without al- teration.
