Tbe late Dr. WRIGHT, an eminent Medical Prnelitinuer al STAF FORO, applied himself diligently many years i endeavouring to tind an effectual Remedy for tl above utnmiing and ( too frequently) obstinnle Dis eases. Alier a series of experiineuis, much labour, aud perseverance, he at length produced Ibe PEA Iti OINTMENT, which, iu a long and very extensive practice, he found lo be utmost invariably successful. The present Possessor, tbe Doctor's Grandson, has been in ihe habit of preparing and distributing it ( gratuitously) lo the nlllicied formally years with iliet same success, until al length the applications for it became so numerous from different purls ut tbe king- dom, that he was compelled eillter to abandon Ihe. preparation of it altogether ( fruui tbe great expense which be incurred) or introduce it to the Public on Bule. Al tbe earnest entrenties of many persons of respectability, who had wilnessed its beueliciul ef- fects, and afler Ihe most mature consideration on his own part, Ihe Possessor has decided upon the laller Ian. The extraordinary efficacy of this Ointment las been fully proved for forty years ; iu many inve- terate cancerous cases it bus effectually cured those who had previously laboured under the agonizing apprehensions of surgical operations. It is entirely free from offensive smell ; and from Ihe harmless nature of the ingredients, it may he applied to children of tbe most lender years. It is iniroduced under the sanction and recommendation of Medical Gentlemen of great eminence and respectability ; aud arnuiid each Pot w ill be found most satisfactory Testi- monials of its efficacy, and also a few ( of llie many) Affidavits of Persons wlnvhave been cured of the most inveterate eul'aneous and oilier diseases; which, it is presumed, nre the surest proofs of its claims to general confidence.

N LTISS THAN THRRR MINUTES, BY ANNING's MALTA EXOTIC.— Nothing can be more deserving of public con fidence and patronage than the fact of the proprietor's offering to cure the afflicted gratis, without requiring them to purchase even after the cure is performed. The following is taken from the Weekly Dispatch :— It is a positive fact that when the Proprietor called to have the above advertisement inserted the Publisher was labouiiug severely wiih the Head- Ache, which had afflicted him two days incessantly ; Mr. Manning requested him to put the Malta Exotic to the test — this was accordingly done, and in about one minute he declared himself perfectly free from pain, to the great astonishment of several gentlemen then present the office. The Malta Exotic is prepared solely by Mr. Man- ning, Surry Cnlial Wharf, Old Kent Road, anil sold Wholesale at all the London Patent Medicine Ware, houses, and Retail by Messrs. W. & J. Eddowes, Booksellers, Pyefiuch and Pidgeon, Druggists, High Street, Whitney aud Co. Druggists, Castle Street Briscoe, Druggist, Castle Street, R.

The advantages especially appertaining to this Pro- perty are so many, that it will be impossible to com- press them in the limited space of this announcement. A few, however, will, it is apprehended, l> e quite sufficient to awaken the attention of the fuudholder to an investment not easily to be met with or resisted, thereby securing ( before it is too late) the benelil of the exceedingly high price of the funds. Recent in in ( lie events seem to concur, and give additional weight to this suggestion. The situation of this property cannot well be too much commended ; it is in the most rich aud fertile part, ami has uniformly been accounted THE GARDEN OF WARWICKSHIRE, within two miles of the renowned Castle, and onlv three miles distant from one of the most fashionable watering places in England, THE LEAMINGTON SPA; while the memorable town which gave birth to our immortal Bard is within seven short miles. The um- brageous walks within this interesting domain, extend more than two miles aud a half, and the property includes near I v THE WHOLE PARISH OF SHERBOURN, divided into convenient dairy farms, in tbe occupation of a highly respectable and contented tenantry. This latter allusion, though one of rare occurrence in the school of agriculture, is not difficult of solution. The farm residences throughout partake of the character of gentlemen's abodes; the land proudly challenges a comparison any where; the markets in the vicinity are highly favourable ; and though last, not least, IT IS FREE FROM TITHE, INCLUDING 1271 ACRES OF PRODUCTIVE LAND. It should have been remarked, that there are two Mansions, with corresponding offices, connected wilh this line Property, called SHERBOURN AND MOREVILLE HOUSE, visa- vis to each otlier^ sealed in finely wooded patks, and only separated hy the turnpike road to Stratford- upon- Avon.

SALOPIAN lOWlL AMP COUKIEE OF WALES. SPREAD OF REVOLUTION. The spread and contagion of revolution and political regeneration'arc as active and powerful, we should think, as fhe most sanguine reformer could wish. The accounts from the North of Germany clearly i$ 1icate that not only the petty ' States are revolting, but that the, larger. Kingdom of Saxony is in imminent danger. — The Duke of Brunswick has been obliged to leave his dominions after thedestructHm by fire of the ducal palace, and a narrow escape, wifh his life, and like Charles the 10th has sought an asylum in England. Thfc tbh. { notions ai Letpsic see hi for the present to have originated in private passions or angtv recol- lections of religious interference, and to have been checked by a timely union of the public force with the resi ectable inhabitants and students nf tbe uni- versity ; hut it cannot be concealed that the re igning Monarch is not popular, iind that he has been guilty of religious persecutions against his Protestant sub jects ; which, with the recollection they have of the principles of the reformed faith, wh. cb'were so early rccognizi d and so widely diffused amongst them, must pro luce rankling sensations and a hearty desire for change. At Hamburgh the tumults hitherto have been highly disgraceful, and have been directed principally against the Jewish inhabitants of the city. The disturbances in the Netherlands are far from settled, nor is it possible, till the meeting of the States General, to calculate upon the strength and success of the parties, the Belgians and the Dutch, who are now contending for a division of that kingdom. At our own glorious revolution, the great mov ing force, which put in operation all the proceedings which finally drove ihe House of Stuart from the British throne, lay in the Aristocracy. In the former French Revolution, ih its fierce and bloody stage-— that force lay in the most vicious and most degraded of fhe people. But the first impelling powers of the devolution of 1830 proceeded neither from the hitjh iior the low, but from the middle classes of the peoplej nnd not from the most affluent of these classes. Here, t'hen, these grave and important considerations will arise. With a popular Government in France, established solely by the will of the people, how long " ivill tiie power of Ferdinand remain in Spain ? How soon will ( he predominance of Austrian Authority in Jial'y Cease ? Can the Government of the Netherlands be long upheld iu its present state ? Will Saxony remain free from the contagion, and are not the minor German states already feeling the influence to a most alarming extent ? These are the momentous questions upon which the minds of the statesmen of Europe must . now he seriously employed.— Two most, im- portant enquiries, therefore, must also immediately / Higgest themselves to every thinking mind :— 1st. Is the present Government of France likely to he permanent ?-— and 2dly, ft hat are the views of oiir own Government, on the subject, in Connexion With the $ reat Powers of Eur6{. e, who were parties fo the Settlement of the last peace. As to the probable permanency of the present French Government, one of the warmest panegyrists of. the French Revolution, the Editor of the Times, lias the following remarks:— " What, let us see," says the Editor, so late as Monday last, , r has bben the tendency of popular opinion since the CITIZHN KING'S accession, and since LAFAYETTE gave his accolade to theKing, and entitled the new French Monarchy " a republic" " the best of republics" f 41 It has not," he says, " tiecome ruore favourable to ihe new - government. The ministers, several of whom are experienced, able, aud liberal statesmen, are considered and represented every where to be men who ought not to bo reckoned on for strict fidelity to the Constitu- tional Government, or at least for a full sympathy with tlie ftitional spirit. Their appointments to offices'are looked upon M not Sufficiently favourable to a rfcndvatfon of tfYSnce. Their sufferance of some fewplaeemensli. il in office, who' had been nominated under the old system, is loudly condemned as a criminal or suspicious indulgence to the public enemy. Their hesitation to dissolve the Chambers, and to pour into one of them a spring- tide of young and vigorous democracy, is made matter of seiions reproach. The KING, though of popular election is less spolcen and thought of every day. AH etiquette is completely banished from his court, and presence• The guards hive disbanded— the flower of the French military force; — yet the people cry out, that every thing is " too royal," and that IJO IVAL change has taken place, but in the substitution of the Iri. colour for the BOnrbott colours. If we be nskerl, is Ihere no effective autliority—- no controlling power within this mightV'land, on whose awful position v) e are now remarking] we answer at once, that there is; hut it is not a civil authority . - not the King fn Coftucil—- not the Legislature j— not- the Magistracy-• not the Law;-- IT IS A MLHITARY POWER, vast, irregular, and imperfectly responsible." And is it upon Such a precarious tenir.' e as this, under such a constitution, that France is likely to settle down ih peace and security ? And is it for such a military democracy as this, that she has . effected her glorious revolution? Is this the species of Go- vcnmKMit that the " unsullied patriotism of the virtu- Ciis Lafayette" has chosen for France? It is true, the iafigu'age of the National Guard is at present mild and constitutional; but " Esau's hands suit ill with Jacob's voice." A million of armed men is a tyrant in any country, overawing the government, which must bend to its most softly- expressed Wishes as promptly as poor Oil fthts did to fhe hypocritical whine of the mendicant whose fiiusfc'et was levelled at his breast. But even though the National Guard be itself better disposed than ever a million of armed men continued to be for three months,— bein£ independent of the government, and stronger than fire government, if destroys the moral power of lawful authority, and teaches such traitors as those who compose the society of " The Friends of the People," to despise the mandates of the legitimate magistrates; it constitutes, in fact, that, most dangerous of all states of society, an armed democracy, in Which free, and force on y, is the object, of obedience and respect. If the throne of Louis Philippe is' to be preserved, the National Guard- must, be disband*. d, or brought, like our militia and volunteers, in a qualified subordination to the crown and aristocracy. The zeal of the Jacobins to preserve this institution proves that it is intended to he an instrument of evil. As to ( he views of our own Government on the subject, little can be known until our Ministers are constrained to state them on the meeting of Parlia- ment. The Duke of Wellington is tfto prudent to follow the advice of the Times', and express his opinions in Taverns and at dinners. In short the policy of our Government cannot be settled and de- termined upon until it is* apprized of the intentions of the other Great, Powers with whom it is in alliance, * ubsff[ uent to every new revolution that breaks out, and every popular tumult that arises at this extra- ordinary crisis. Prince Talleyrand too has not yet. arrived with his credentials', and opened his portfolio of advice. The first impulse of Russia towards, France on hearing of the revolution, wits certainly hostile; and though she may have since repented of this hasty indication of disapprobation, and become alarmed at the expression of the consequences Of the spread of liberal opinions it? her extensive empire, and artiongsf an ambitious and powerful aristocracy, who are already jealous of several enlarged and beneficent nets of the Emperot- Nicholas, it is impossible not to perceive what was the first impression of the Russian Government. A more wily policy dictated pro-, destination, instead of prompfilude— circumspection instead of decision. The Russian statesmen have not certainly acted with the same caution as Mettermch and the other Ministers of the Allied Powers/ The policy of these, of Austria and Prussia in particular, whose proximity to tlie ptirtof Earope where liberalism is raging, must have rendered them peculiarly appre- hensive of revolution, is" undoubtedly to temporize and prepare for consequences; to wait until some in- temperate and dangerous proceedings of the liberals shall compel them to act with decision ; and to pre- serve peace. And above all things, they would feel themselves bound to ascertain, whether France can be governed firmly under its present. Constitution, so as to ensure her prosperity and domestic tranquillity, and to maintain her relations of amity with Foreign States. To recognize Louis Phillipe, as King of the French, to avoid any open manifestation of hostile feeling—- and to watch, sword in hand, the march of liberalism and democracy in France, iu the Nether- lands, Spain, Italy, Prussia, SaxonyJ and Poland, must for a time he the rule of conduct of the older Governments of Europe.

HUSKISSON. The details'bf this melancholy event will be found in our fourth page.— In the course of Thursday a deputation from Liverpool waited upon the Duke tff Wellington at Childwall, to whom he expressed the deepest regret, at the sad catastrophe, and informed the gentlemen that he could not participate in any further festivities on the occasion. The dinner which was to have been given I> y tfie. Mayor at the Town hall on Thursday, and the bail at the Wellington Rooms, at which seven hundred persons were expect- ed to be present, were of course Abandoned, as also was the public dinner proposed to be given on Satur- day at the Exchange News Rooms, at which the Right Hon. Gentleman was likewise expectcd to attend. The inhabitants of Liverpool, oft tbe arrival of the melancholy tidings of Mr. Huskisson* s decease, uni- versally closed their offices and shops, the vessels hoisted their flags half- mast, and every demonstration which could denote the deep feeling of grief so generally felt, was instan{ lv rftade. On the following day a requisition, signed by three hundred ^ entlenien of the highest respectability, was addressed to the Mayor, requesting him to make immediate applica- tion to the friends of their deceased and lamented Representative, that his remains . might be interred within the precincts of the town. The requisition was confided by fhe Mayor to the Rector of Liverpool, the Rev. J. Brookes, by whom it was Conveyed to' Ecclcs. Mrs. Huski^ Spn was deeply affected by the application, her own feelings leading her to desire a private funeral, but she at length yielded to the proposal. The remains of the deceased were in con- sequence removed to the Townhall, Liverpool, oil Saturday last, pre pa fa tor y to their interment oii Friday neict.

HA/.

In the present year, it produced clusters of from eight to ten each, and on one cluster thirty fine nuts were taken. A NF. W OPERATION FOR A STIFF JOINT.— Mr. Cross,' of Crock Meole, near this town, has a valuable waggon horse, which became lame in the coffin joint of the off hind leg : every means was used to remove the lameness, by blistering, firing', & c. & c. without effect. At length the joint became so much con traded, that the horse could not put bis heel to the ground, and walked upon his toe for upwards of two years: consequently, he was unable to draw any weight, and was perfectly useless. Mr. Cross sent the horse to Mr. E Hickman, veterinary- surgeon, who recommended that the two flexor tendons ( or back sinews) should be divided, as the only means of bringing the heel to llie ground. Mr. Cross at first thought this a very startling operation, hut consented lo have it performed. Mr. Hickman performed the operation hy making an incision of about three inches in length on the inside of the leg, in the direction of the lendons; then dissecting the stein back a HI tie, he felt for the vein and nerve, which with his fingers he pushed hack-, at the same time introducing a scalpel between the suspensory ligament and tendons, as far as Ihe Common integuments on the other side : by that means he was able to execute1 Ihe division of the tendons without touching the skin on the back of the leg : a bandage Vfas applied to the part, and a dose of physic administered. Immediately after Ihe ope- ration, the horse put his heel to the ground ; alter the Second day, he appeared to sutler very little pain ; and in a short time he will be as sound as ever. This operation has never been performed by any veterinary surgeon in England : but Professor L) ick, of the Edinburgh Veterinary College, has operated in a similar way three times, and succeeded SHREWSBURY RACES, 1830.

Albion of Monday last g! t » es fhe following corrected detail of tbe lamentable accident by which Mr. Huskisson was deprived of life At Parfeside tbe engines were ranged under differ- ent watering Stations to receive fresh water, the whole extending along nearly half a mile of road. After two of the engines, with their trains^ had passed the duke's carriage, although four other* had to follow, fhe company, with the exception of the ladies, in despite of the printed request of 4Ue.. Direc- tors, that they should not quit their seats at ( he watering- stations, began tf> alight from the three state carriages. Perhaps, not less than twenty noble- men and gentlemen had alighted from these vehicles, and were walking on or standing in the road close to the ducal car Among the group was Mr. Huskisson, whom Mr, Holmes, M. P. of the Treasury, joined, and, with the view of bringing him and the Duke of Wellington together, feeling flint these two statesmen ought never to have been separated, lie walked up to the part of the car in which the noble duke Kad taken his station His grace, perceiving Mr. Huskissnn by the side of the car, extended his hand over to the right lion, gentleman, who shook it most cordiillly, A few words of mutual compliment had passed, when tbe duke ai; d ihe other personages in bis car, per- ceiving an engine, which turned out to be the Rocket, rapidly approaching upon the other line, called out to the passengers on tlie road, " Get in, get in !" Several did get in before the engine reached the state carriages; but Mr. Husskisson, who was in a weak state of health, ( he effect of his recent indisposi tion, and one of whose limbs was somewhat tender, became Hurried, and, after making two attempts to cross the road upon which the Rocket was moving, ran hack, in a state of great agitation, to the side of the duke's carriage. White, the engineer, saw the unfortunate gentleman, as ( he engine approached, in a position of ( he most imminent . danger, and he im- mediately threw the machine aback; but it and its train moved onwards several yards by the impetus before tbe operation of stopping it could be performed. Mr. Holmes, M. P. who had not succeeded in getting into the carriage, stood next to Mr. Huskis- nn, and perceiving that he had altogether lost his presence of mind, seeming like a man bewildered, he cried out, " For God's sake, Mr. Huskisson, be firm!" The Space between the two lines of rails is just four feet; but the ducal car being eight feet wide, it extended 2 feet beyond the rail on which it moved, thus dimin- ishing the space to two feet between its side ahd the rail on which the Rocket was moving, and on which Mr. Huskisson and several other gentlemen were standing. Then the engine itself projected somewhat over the rail on which it ran, still further diminishing the standing room to not more, perhaps, than or. e foot and a half, when the vehicles were side by side on Ihe opposite rails, a space scarcely sufficient to allow a man of ordinary bulk to escape contact by placing himself sideways between the carriages. The door of the ducal car happened, most unfortunately, to be three feet broad, and, when on the full swing, extended one foot beyond the rail on which the Rocket moved ; so that it was impossible for that engine to pass without striking and throwing it back with a violent concussion, in the direction in which the machine was moving. Of this door Mr. Huskis- son had grasped hold, when lie stepped back, after his vain attempts to cross the road, when Warned of the approach of the Rocket, Mr. Littleton, M. P. for Staffordshire, who had sprung, we believe, into Ihe drfcal car, which was ascended hy a step- ladder broad enough, we believe, to permit only one person on it at a time, had just " pulled in," to use his own expression, Prince Esterhazy, when he saw Mr. Hus- kisson, alarmed aud agitated, with his hand on the door, which he seemed to grasp with a kind of trembling or convulsive hold. Mr. Holmes, as we said above, pressed up, with his face to the duke's car, and exhorted his next neighbour, Mr. Huskisson, for God's sake to be firm, and take care of the " infernal machine" which was approaching them. At this moment the Rocket struck the door of which Mr. Huskisson Ifad a hold, fractured the edge, peeling off nearly two feet of the red haize with which it was lined, and pushed it back wilh violence, squeezing a gentleman against the side of the car. Mr Huskisson, being weak and agitated, and having lost all presence of mind, fell as soon as the door was struck by which he h. id supported himself, and the space between the MR. M. OYD.

On the 10th inst. Thomas Rladen and Thomas Roicley, convicted at our last Assizes for highway robbery, James Rlaheway, Richard Rlakeway, an" d Thomas Duce, for horse- stealing, John Gamble and Thomas Raker, for liouse- breaking, and Tliomas Chetuood, for sacrilege, were removed from our County Gaol, and conveyed to the hulk at Sbeerness, to undergo their sentence of transportation.— It will be recollected that Chetwood broke into Condover Church, and there committed the felony of which he was convicted, by stealing the communion plate : in offering part of this sacrilegious plunder for sale at Bridgnorth, he was apprehended; and previous to Ills being delivered up at Sheerness, Mr. Griffiths, the Keeper of our Couoty Gaol, induced him to confess where the remainderwas hidden.— On Thursday last, Mr. Griffilhs,- with . Mr. J. J. Peele, proceeded to the spot that had been pointed out by the convict, and under their directions the remainder of the stolen plate was c'ug from its place of concealment— a ditch, near Bonnie, about a mile from Condover.— From this circumstance Ihere is every reason to believe Chetwood had no accomplice in the crime of which he was convicted.

J. IV. WATSON. DATED 3d SEPT. 1830. WORCESTER Mt'SIC MEETING Commenced on Tuesday. At an early hour, the company began to assemble at the Cathedral ; and by half- past ten, there was scarcely a place vacant, though the accommodation was so ample. Their Royal Highnesses the Dtlchess of Kent and the Princess Victoria arrived, with their suite, before eleven, at the Deanery, where they were received by the Bishop of Rochester and Ladv Sarah Murray, and soon after passed into the Cathedral. Hie venerable Diocesan conducted the Duchess of Kent, and the Bishop of Rochester led the interesting Princess Victoria. A long train of Nobility oc- cupied seats near their Royal Highnesses, towards wlioni every eye was directed. At this moment thc Church presented an appearance > qually striking and beautiful; the magnificent chanccl gallery was filled in every part. At eleven o'clock thc service opened with that sublime and affecting composition the Dead March in Saul ; and the whole of thc performances were given with the finest effect. The Sermon was preached by the Bishop of Rochester, from Luke xv; • 25. " Now his elder son uas in the field, and as he came nigh to the house, he heard music and dancing." The object of bis Lordship's discourse was to meet some objections which has been raised against Festivals of this description. At the Concert at ( he College Hall, in the evening, Madame Malihran ( the principal novelty among the vocalists at this meeting,) made her debut in an Aria, and fully justified her claim to rank as the greatest singer now in this kingdom. On Wednesday morning, the Messiah was most admirably performed, but although the audience was not so numerous as on the preceding day, the chan- cel gallery and choir Were full Tlie Duchess of Kent and the Princess were not present.— In the evening, the Concert was well attended, and Madame Malibran, Mrs. Knyvett, . Miss Cramer, Brahatn, and De Begnis, exerted their best powers with eminent success. On Thursday morning a Selection comprising some of the choicest productions of Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Citnarosa, Beethoven, Paesiello, & c. at- tracted a crowd of fashionable company, and the evening's Concert, which closed the Festival, was also honoured by a numerous assembly, hut our. limits will not admit of our particularising the per- formances. It is eminently gratifying to state that the con- tributions to the Charity were most liberal. The collections were as under: First Day £ 367 14 0 Second Day 302 3 6 Third Day 335 16 0 1005 13 6 In the above amount are included the following contributions:— Duchess of Kent, £ 50; Lady Co- ventry, £ 52 10s.; Lord Plymouth, £ 50; Earl Bean- champ, £ 50; E.

As no correct account of the Otiuoor riots has been published, we insert thc following :— Otmoor is a marshy waste piece of land in Oxford shire, of 2500 acres, with a sniail brook running through it, and seven neighbouring towns had a right of common upon it. As it was of little value, from the continued floods, and the encroachments, and other abuses, an act of parliament was obtained in 1815 to drain and inclose it. This was carried into execution, and all continued quiet till last year, when the rainy season in June having occasioned great floods in the lands above Otmoor, and the embank- ments there being supposed to impede the descent of the water, a riotous mob of farmers and others assem- bled, and cut dow n tbe batiks. They were indicted for felony under Peel's Act, but were acquitted, under tbe directions of Judge Parke, on the ground that, as- the enibankments stopped the water, and occasioned the injury to the lands above, they were a nuisance which the occupiers bad a right to abate. He added likew ise that the commissioner had exceed- ed the powers given him by the act of parliament in making this new drain and embankment. In consequence of this decision, the poor people and farmers of the Otmoor towns entertained a notion that the act of parliament was void ; that the in- closure and all the proceedings under it were illegal; and that they had a right to destroy the fences, and lay the whole open as it was originally. They as- sembled, therefore, on Saturday night, the 28th Aug. in large bodies, and began breaking and cutting up the fences and hedges. These proceedings were con- tinued every night for a week. Tbe rioters, who were often disguised, were joined by people from the neighbouring villages, and their numbers at some times amounted to more than a thousand ; and lite greater part of the fences were destroyed to a very great valne. Many persons were assaulted and wounded, particularly a sou of Sir Alexander Croke, who went to protect his father's property, and was left for dead. All attempts of the civil power being found insufficient to quell them, the assistance of the military was called in. The Oxfordshire Yeomanry Cavalry, tinder Lord Churchill, and the Buckingham- shire Yeomanry Cavalry, under the Marquis of Chandos, lent their ready protection, and thc rioters were stopped in their proceedings. About forty were taken prisoners on fhe moor, but on being carried tn wa gons to Oxford, escorted by a detachment of the Oxfordshire Cavafry, they were rescued by the mob w hich was assembled al Ox- ford, it being St. Giles's fair. A detachment of Dragoons has been sent down by government, many of the rioters bave since been apprehended, and measures are pursued to bring them to justicc. A notion had been entertained that Otmoor be- longed to the poor inhabitants of the surrounding towns,— an opinion which has been fully confuted, 1 and it has been proved that tbis moor differed in n'o respect ftom all other commons: that the poor had 110 other right than 1 hey bave in other places, and every cottage house had an allotment for it upon the inclosure. So fair from doing any injury, the proprietors have rendered an essential service to the country, and even to the poor themselves, by bring- ing this targe tract of land into cultivation. The Duke of Wellington at Manchester. On tbe subject of his Grace's tccenl visit to Man-. Chester ( see 4th page}, the Manchester Chronicle of Saturday has the following observations :— " Thc speech of the Duke of Wellington' at tlie great dinner in the Theatre on Monday last did not touch upon politics. For this we were perfectly pre- pared. His Grace had been originally invited before that change in his Jirie of policy bad taken place which has deprived hint of the friendship and follow- ing of so many of his former most zealous partizans,' and it would have been impossible to draw up any line of dunduct which would not have produced some dissent. It was therefore wisely, iu our opinion, re- solved that the Duke should he received in that character in which we all delight to honour him—: as tbe great general ti'bo fought with glory antl success the most dreadful and gigantic struggle lit which it was the lot of this Country evei; tu BS Mi-* gaged. The absence nf Sir Rob - ft. Peel, if? r. iigh it was urgjd on the Committee tl. fi lie rhotild have been invited, vfcas a sritiipent prtfof that Ihe compli- ment was intended for lite Cotj. tjiieror ot' Napoleon— not for Ihe'First. Lord of the Treasury. The inscrip- tion of' WATERLOO,' pISied in gigan'ic letters oppo- site his Grace, was a significant explanation of the intentions of his entertainers. " The Duke therefore a hntained purposely front any political allusions, except those of the vaguest nature. Hi* compliment* to the manufacturers and the commercial spirit of Manchester, and his declar- ation that his Ministry ( IcSlred nothing so much as' the applause of such assemblages as tllosc which he. saw about him, were nothing rriore than words of course— the ordinary civilities which are ft I ways to be expected on such occasions. Mis Grace's liirfct as to the necessity of a new Police* if meant to be signify cant in the manner that so many of OCif contempo- raries construe it, is not so palatable. The Police which he has introduced into London is occasioning' a general outcry,. ParisTi alter parish ii meeting to' complain of the increased expense and diminished efficiency of the Police; and in oiie of them ati address to the King has been almost unanimously carried bv men of all parties, the prayer of which is/ that his Majesty will abolish the new System. Oil general grounds, even if fhe new Police were cheaper.' more effective, and more orderly tliaji the old ( aria the reverse is the case), We have a stfOrig* pbjectiorf to the principle of putting the powers of a Police info the hands of the executive; and that objection is considerably strengthened by tlic late affairs iti France. " Passing bv this, hoVvevCr, a? r perhaps being fort curiously considered, we. have nothing further which, by any implication could be construed into political matter, except, what fell from the Earl of Wilton. We have neither motive nor inclinatioh fo, think slightingly of his Lordship, and yet we Cannot help agreeing with some of our London contemporaries^ that his speech w* as ill- timed and injudicious in many particulars. It wits hardly in keeping with the ob- ject for which the cfinrffcr was £ iveri— li? honour of one of the greatest improvements that sCieric'e has made in the useful arts of life— 16 descant with' any, appearance even of harshness upon the a mardh of intellect; 1' nor was it true that the tide of knowledge1 has always flowed in this or any other cotintry from the higher orders : the contrary would be far. Hearer the truth. Neither can * ve agree with his Lordship' in thinking that the aristocracy of the country has. been lowered in public opinion through any fault of the inferior classes. As knowledge advances in s'oci- dtvy the principle which leads men of intellect to- scout the absurd dogma of divine right, in kings, will! gradually. operate to overthrow the dogmas equally absurd of inherent arid natural superiority in the' nobility. But so far from this endangering the hold of the aristocracy on the. good opinions of the people^' or rendering their station less honoured, or thefr property leWs secure, the contrary is the filch Tii'e increasing intelligence which makes men disbelieve the doctrine of natural superiority of one man over' another, except by tlie gift of talents from GdPj? makes them also' more sensible of the blcssiitgs of* order, and more strongly impressed with the necessity of preserving those rank's and classes'which' the well- being of all civilized society demands. Educated and intelligent men will riot, admit, that « n isjnorant; or stupid Lord is their superior— but neither wilf they join iii a Jacquerie to pull down L/ y forte the order to which he belongs. li That, individual members of the aristocracy may disgrace themselves, is unhappily too consonant, witii what we find to be fhe case wherever w° consider detail the conduct- of individual members of large bodies of mankind, not to be expected it's a matter of course; but with reflecting persons fIris is Of nt* moment. We arc sorry, however* to say . that the events of last year have tended much to lessen the general respect to the aristocracy, as a hody; but that is to be attributed not to any feeling On tii'e part of the people generally to dislike them, but to their1 own conduct. No man, whether he be favourable or unfavourable to the emancipation of the Roman Catholics, can feel the same honour for the House of Lords that he, formerly felt, when lis finds that if carried. by an immense majority in March a question: which by a numerous majority it had refused even to consider in the July preceding—• nothing- having? changed in the mean time except the mind of the Prinze Minister Here the people are not to blame ; the cause is to be sought in the conduct of the Peer* and the Bishops. They have by such a course alien- ated from them a great proportion of that particular party which was most decidedly their friends, without in the least diminishing the ranks of th'eir former enemies. If Lord Wilton wonUl give himself the trouble of thinking, he would find that the march of mind has less to do with the matter ( if it had any thing, which we deny) than the march of ajytwtate principles. " The elections, according to Lord tVrtfon, will shew that tbe Duke of Wellington's Administration? 1 is popular— an inspection < rf the lists has given us very different impression, but as a few weeks- wil'l now afford us demonstration on the subject, it k of no* use to speculate. As we are not, much enamoured of politics merely factious, thc main end and object of which are no more than place anil jrav, we are only anxious that such a party may be formed iu Parliament as will, without looking whether their measures strengthen or weaken the hands of Govern- ment, whether they deserve the now idle nickname* of Whig or Tory," steadily pursue that course of retrenchment and economy which the Country so imperatively demands. In other part culais we would? trust almost arty Administration— in foreign affairs there is seldom al motive for a Minister to act against the general interest, and the Country is so decidedly in favour of non- interference with politics that affect us very remotely, if at all, that there is no chance of any one pushing us into war. Indeed, tiie policy of the Duke is decidedly pacific, and- that being the' case we can hardly go wrong. It is in the internal government of the nation that we are distrustful, ami particularly in the administration of its finance.*. Here every Minister is continually tempted fo g* o astray, and it is the first duty of the representatives of the people to keep' baft in the right path. Wl at a relief to all classes the reduction of ten' rfnflioiis of taxation would be-^- and it is easily in the ptnvr of Parliament to reduce by that sum, without injuring or crippling any of tire useful departments' of our public service. HoW paltry, compared with this, are the squabbles about Terceira' or Portugal,- which wasted so niuth time and labour last Session.*' BANKRUPTS, SEPT. l7.~ Janres Smallbone, of Tich. born- street, Ilayurarkel, picture dealer.— Thoiiitts Bryan, of Commercial Sale Bourns, and Northumber- land- street, New- road, wine- broker.— Thos.

There has been lately a great influx of foreign capital into tbis country. It is said that no less than mnety new banking accounts have been opened at the Bank of England within the last three weeks iw the names of foreigners. An incident in London, arising out of tbe Jtfft? affairs on the continent, is worthy of observation, perhaps, for some graver reafst>* ns than its extreme absurdity. The latter is, lnrweter, the ouly reason for our noticing it. ail ride to a meeting of pec- sons, under the auspices- of Lanark O. ven, to consider the means of averting the necessi v of similar pro^ ceedings in this country to those in Eranee and Bel- gium, by means of a radical change in the education* . sentiments, and habits of the people, and in the direction of their industry. The moral- moiety of the proposition was met by tbe project * f abolishing* religion from the scheme of education in youth; ami the mechanical part was considered to be sa isiied by the destruction of machinery, and a return to manml labour in all operations of industry.

The Roman Empire, in its brightest sunshine of prosperity, never extended over such a space as that in which the Moslem dominion was comprised, about the time that Charlemagne sent an embassy. from Air.- la- Clitrpelle to Haroon » i" i ' RashCed. Tlie reader of F. astPrn History eannot refrain from smiling, when lie recollects how near we have been becoming a nation of Islantecs. The sons- of the Prophet! once held the whole of the European • coast of the Mediterranean In the reign of Solyman, a brother and predecessor of Vi- Z'rd, the followers of Tarile Ebn £ arka, were contending in Spain against Peine iuo and Xinienes; and in the feign of his successor, llesham, Ihe Moors' had . not only reached the heart of France, but; if report is not a liar, their wild and heroic- leader, Manasseh Ben Nazir, had also reached the heart of - one of her fairest daughters. The city of the C'a'sars has been sacked hy a horde of Saracens. from the Desert, and the cry ( if Allah hit.' has echoed in the metropolis of the christian world. The Turks have thundered at the fery gates of Vienna; and the savage Tartars- of Zingis Khan once overran the whole of Germany, till their career of desolation was cheeked by the brave Bohemians near that field retuleie. il ever- memorable by one of the greatest of modern chieftains— the bloody plain of- Austerlitz. Indeed, lint forCharles Mai'tel, in France, and John Sohk'.' lki, at Vienna* instead of being the tight and buttoned nation wc now are, we might- have been treading . our . native fields in caftans and pupoushes ; wearers of the stately turban, inr place, of bearers of ungraceful piles of felt and pasteboard; and where our emphatic oaths now prevail, we should have adopted the more seemly custom of stroking our beards, and swearing by the souls of our grandsires. MACHINERY. The question of Machinery, which the people of France so little understand; is equally as little under- stood in this country. Interest generally decides it; anil the national good or evil resulting from it is not considered. The owners of machinery approve of it — they profit by it; the working people disapprove of it— ii throws them out of employ, and the elo- quence or logic of lite economists, who contend that if they will hive patience it will tcrid to their ultimate good, is not sutlicient to satisfy the starving com- plainants. This question is not only one of interest, but, with abstract reasoners, one Of novelty, which it may take an age to- elucidate. Certainly the philosophers of the present day are in error-. for Ihey say, the fault is not- in the machinery, but in the redundancy of labourers, and recommend their removal, or conclude that tbe ultimate effect of the decrease in the demand for labour will decrease the ntunlier of those who have that valuable commodity to dispose of. They are entirely wrong in saying machinery is good, if in its substitution it is necessary to reduce the number of the human species, for whose happiness and wel- fare it is intended. Us end cannot be right, if it be the destruction of that it was intended to support Tliey are entiiely wrong in saying, that decreased demand wilt cau. e a decrease in the supply of labour, and thereby produce its ultimate good; for experi- ence obviously shews,- according to the economists1 on n shewing, that population has increased more rapidly since ( lie use of machinery ( ban before. In- order to sliest that machinery is really useful, it ought to be proved, that it would enable a nation to support a greater aniorint of population, or the same amount with increased comforts. The failing to pro- duce such proof only shews that it is worse than use- less. But, let us seir how fhe case stands upon a first view. A nation has a certain population, and certain amount of produce in food and clothing The people are well fed; well clothed, and happy They then - invent machinery, by which they are, enabled to increase the amount of every thing' which; industry produces, and then the labourers becortte, in' proportion lo fhe facility of production, less fed and wwse clothed ; and; as the potver of production in- creases, fliey become more ami more impoverished, for the want of that which they prodocc ill greater Abundance, Until fhe poorer classes are swallowed up in the vortex of poverty, crime, anil misery. All will readily say, tbis is an anomaly in reasoning— the effect does not correspond with the cause in the remotest degree. Did Ihey not actually see such effects, none could believe their possibility ? But it is singular lhat people should here pause at a certain stretch of reasoning, and say, So it is, arid end the argument. We want proof; and if that pvoof is- not fmmil in one source to which they have attempted to tracc the evil, it may be in another. We cannot afford space to argue at any length on 1he subject, but we cannot avoid throwing out a hint or two that may lie caught hold of by those more - capable of solving the difficulty, who will, we trust, be induced to apply tlteir talents to that purpose. It - is on admitted axiom, that the power of a country depends on the number of its people, as long as it does not. exceed the means which the country provides for their maintenance. If, then, machinery provide these means in greater abundance, so much the less does the number exceed them, in Ireland and England we may safely say that, if ever there were abundance of food and clothing, that abundance exists now. The Irish are constantly sending over an overwhelming supply of provisions to F. ngland, and the English can get no demand for their produce in a redundant market. The cause of the evil, then, is evidently not a want of food. What it is we have already shewn; and shall now leave the economists to find out a better reason.— Hath Journal. ELECTION WIT— On the conclusion of the Borough contest for Stamford, an adult public immersion of several unhaplized Anabaptists took place in the river. On every plunge the populace, in the interest of the losing but popular candidate, exclaimed, " a plumper for Tennyson !" Gilbert Higgott, Postmaster of Tarporley, was on the 2d inst. committed to Chester Castle, charged witll detaining a letter, containing a remittance, ad dressed to Mr Charles Cheston, of Birmingham, from the 6lh until the 23d of July. It was not discovered that the letter had been put info the Tarporley oflice until the arrival of Mr. Cheston's traveller tliere 011 the 17th of that month, in a few days after which the letter came to hand, but under such suspicious cir- cumstances, that, the Magistrates of Tarporley, in conjunction with the Post- office Inspector of the district, caused an investigation to take place, the result of which was the committal of Higgott to take his trial at the next assizes. Grand Dinner given to the Vrike of Wellington, in Manchester* His Grace arrived at Heaton Park, the seat of the Earl of Wilton, on Saturday, preparatory to bis being present at the opening of the Manchester and- Liverpool . Railway.— On Monday, pursuant to an invitation given two years ago, his Grace dined with Ihe Boroughreeve and principal inhabitants of Manchester and its vicinity, the Theatre having; been fitted up for the purpose of accommodating the immense assemblage who had paid two guineas each for the distinction of participating in the pleasures and honour of the feast.^- Bulkeley Price E? q. tbe Boroughreeve, entered the room accom- panied, by the Noble Duke ; and the following was the ordef of the guests, as they took their places at the circular head table :— In the Chair, the Boroughreeve pf Manchester aud Salford, from him to the right, the Duke of Wellington, Lord Com- bermere. Count Matoushevitz, Lord Delaware; IxiI'd Stanley, the Honourable IL Chohhondeley, il. Greville, Esq. On llie Chairman's left, Earl Wilton, Lord F. L. Gower, Count Bachyamis, Ixird Sk- lmersdale, the Hon. W; Anson, J. W. Patten, Esq. Lieutenant- Colonel Shaw. The suinptuofis repast being ended and the cloth re- moved, the customary toasts Were drunk with due honours.- The CHAIRMAN) in rising to give the next toast, regretted that lie. had not the power to do it the justice it deserved. He regretted that it bad not fallen into hands tbat would have been bettef; able to do it the honour to which it was entitled; he meant the health of. their distinguished visitor, whq bad honoured them with his presence on' that day { loud and tong- continucd applause) i His whole life had been devoted to the service of his country { renewed. applause) ; but lie would sSy that they, he belie, ved,. would all agree with hini that their Noble visitor was justly entitled to their gratitude. He ( concluded by proposing " the health of his Grace the Duke of Wellington"—( fouti applause; which lasted several minutes); r]" he toast was ' hen drank, with nine times nine. The Duke of WELLINGTON then rose to return thanks. He observed that he was trjuch gratified with the honour which they had conferred upon him, by inviting him to attend them there on the first occasion 011 which he had had it. in his power to vijsit that part of the country. He had then to return thanks for the honour tbey had done h| m in drinking bis health in fhe manner they had done, an. d for the manner in which they bad received the toast. Their Chairman had been pleased to refer lo the services which he ( the Chairman) had thought lie had conferred upon the country—( applause). He again begged to thank them for tbe honour they had conferred upon him by their invitation, and the maimer in which they had received him 011 this occasion. He could not help feeling the mote, as the sentiment was pronounced, by those who, by their enterprise, their industry, and their ability; had raised the prosperity of this town till they , had made it the fountain and centre of a system of commerce. which, had never before existed in any • part of tbe world, and which, was the en. vy and admiration of the world,—( The Noble Duke sat down amidst loud applause, . which continued for some minutes). When the applause had in some measgre subsided, the Noble Duke again rose, and said he had. obtained permission to propose a toast, but be should be, obliged to them first to 611 their c| » t « Mlaughter). He begged to propose to tiipm tbe health of their worthy Chairman, the Poroughreeve of Manchester—( applause j. He begged fo say that the gentleman to whom he had alluded bad done every thing that was possible to do to study his ( the Dttke of Wellington's) con- venience—( applause). He felt great pleasure in proposing tbat they should give this mark of respect tp him, as he was the, chief Magistrate of this town, which he had already said was the centre of thpir great system of commerce. He trusted that they would all feel; with him, that if good order did, not prevail, if a good police was not preserved, it was not possible to keep up their prosperity, as that was the only result of good Oixler—( apptutise). He concluded by proposing " the health of the Boroughreeve of Manchester ;'* and .> . The CHAIRMAN shortly returned thanks, and observed tbat he should never reflect on this day but with the greatest pleasure-^- fgreat applause). " The Anny aud Nav. y" was then drunk with Ihree times three; as was also " Our pride and safeguard, the British Constitution." " The health of the Earl of Wilton" was then drunk with like honours. The Earl of WII. TON then rose to return thanks. After a few observations,- he thanked them heartily J'or the. cordial manner in Which bis health had been drunk—(" applause), by every individual present. He fell the more indebted to them, as it reminded him that his family bad long been connected with tliein—( applause). He knew there were many persons present who remembered his predecessor. He ( Lord Wilton) would say that tliere was not oue of the titles which his revered predecessor had bequeathed to him, there was not one which he valued so highly as his hereditary claim to the attachment of the people of this town—( applause). He coul'l not express his gratification when they drank his health iu so warm a manner, and estimated so highly the poor services which they thought he had conferred upon them. He returned them his most sincere thanks, and trusted that they would continue to prosper, under a mild and benevolent Government. He could not sit down without expressing his regret at the state of opinion ill Ibis country, Me remembered when the public opinion was obedience to the laws of tbe land, and when ( he people were obedient to the laws of the country, wifnqot cavil or complaint. Then they were happy in attachment to the Aristocracy of the country, He was sorry, how- ever, to say that it was not so now. What the cause of this difference was he knew not. Goi> forbid that he should do aught to stem the progress of knowledge.; but he did regret that the higher classes of this country, from whence tiie tide of knowledge has always flowed, were not, ju the present state of public opinion, estimated as tliey ought to be. It was deeply to be regretted that it was so. He did not know how far such opinions had affected the late elections, but he believed that their Noble gftest would not in any way suffer from it. For his own part, he hoped and trusted that they would not prove unfavourable to him. He wished to say that their Noble guest had his most sincere good wishes, and, as far as was in his power, his cordial support. He believed lie could say that thefe was not one person who hpard liini who did not join iu the opinion that whatever measures had been taken by the Noble Duke and his Honourable Colleagues, those measures were tiiose which they considered best calculated to meet the exigencies of the State—( loud and con- tinued applause) He believed they were all intended to maintain the prosperity, happiness, and integrity of the empire, He hoped that they should never forget, either individually or collectively, what the country owefl to the Noble Duke— fap- plause). He thought that tbey could not easily forget that it was the Duke of Wellington who had restored them lo the blessings of peace, and over- thrown the power of an usurper. These were facts that would be known to their children's children—( loud applause). He would conclude by proposing " the health of his Majesty's Ministers" —(. loud applause). The toast having been drunk with great mani- festations of applause, The Duke of WELLINGTON returned thanks. He did so most sincerely on behalf of himself and of his Right Honourable Colleagues—( applame); he returned his best thanks for the honour the meeting had done them. He was convinced that they did not expect him to enter into a discussion of systems of policy—( long- continued applause). But he could assure them of this— that they desired to retain the confidence of his Majesty only so long as they retained the confidence of such an as- semblage as this—( loud and continued applause). He concluded with again thanking them for the honour they bad done him. The Duke of Wellington at Liverpool. On Tuesday his Grace proceeded from Heaton Park, to Child well,. the seat ofthe Marquis of Salis- bury,, and- op Wednesday Jiiorning yisited Liverpool to witness the interesting ceremony ofthe OPENING OF THE RAILWAY. The interest which this event excited, not only in the two great towns at the extremities of the line, biit also in all the adjacent districts, and even in remote parts of tlie kingdom, was extremely powerful; and the concourse of spectators Assem- bled was greater. than lias been witnessed in this part ofthe country 011 any. previous occasion : As early as Monday crowds of persons flocked ( Into Liverpool, and continued to arrive until Wed- nesday morning, in addition to the immense population of Liverpool and Manchester which were distributed through tbe line, hundrpds of thonsands of people flocked in from Bury, Bolton Preston, Wigan, and tbe other populous towns of Lancashire ; from all parts of Shropshire, Cheshire, Derbyshire, and North Wales ; and even from Scotland and trelaud. It was computed: that not less than 500,00( i persons were assembled through out the whole line, Besides the additional interest arising from the presence of the Duke, of Wellington, Ihe. event of the opening of ' he Railway w as of itself sufficient lo justify the curiosity which was felt- , As a, work of drt it has seldom been ttqft. illed in magnitude aud importance; the tnnnpl, the rock excavations at Olitte Mount, the embankment of ijrOnd Green, the Newton Vjaduef, the cut, ting at Keuyon, and the 6rm and beautiful road across Ihe swamps of Chat Moss, are all great and admirable triumphs of seience, industry; and cnterprizt; indeed, whether taken as a w hole, or. examined in detail, llie Rail- way maj fairly be ranked as one of Ihe noblest and most useful Works that this or any other cAuutiy has ever pos& essed. At Literpool and Manchester the intense and ansioits iuterest was most natural. The amount of property invested , iu the Railway is nearly a million sterling, and this was the com- mencement Of the Series of trials and experiments which will difcide the value of ( hat property. Tlie company assembled at the Crown- street Station, Edge Vale, tibottf half- paSt nine o'clock, The carriage containing tbe Duke of Wellington and the distinguished visitors, was truly magnificent.

The army, which is the greatest tax room for the other impression, he made an attempt to get into the car- riage of the Duke before the Dart came up. The unfortunate gentleman beCatne flurried, and hastily caught hold of the door, but unhappily in endea- vouring tq ascend lie missed his footing, and either fell, or was thrown, down by the door, and lay across the other line, the moment before the Dart came up! The conductor of that engine immediately stopped it, but before this was completely effected, both wheels of the engine, and one of those of the first carriage attached to it, passed over the right leg of the unfortunate gentleman, which was placed across the rail, his head and body being under the engine. The right leg was frightfully shattered below the knee; and the thigh also suffered a com. pound fracture. The entire was the work of a mo- ment. An instant previous he was in the full pos- session of health and spirits; lie now lay bleeding and mangled before his friends! To pourtray the scene that followed would be impossible; Mrs. Hus- kisson uttered a scream of horror, and fainted under her appalling aflliction. The Earl of Wilton, Mr. Holmes, and Mr. Parkes, solicitor, of Birmingham, raised Mr. Huskisson from the ground. The . only words he uttered at that time were to this effect:—" I have met my death— God forgive me." The first thing that was done was to twist a handkerchief ( in the manner of a tourniquet) tightly round the wounded parts of the lirifb, for the purpose of stopping the effusion of blood ; and the Northumbrian, being detached from the carriages, was sent forward with the greatest possible speed to Eccles with Mr. Huskisson, the Earl of Wilton, Mr. Stephenson, and two medical gentlemen, ( Dr. Hunter, of Edinburgh, and Mr. Brandretli, of Liverpool,) who happened to be present, but had no. surgical instruments with them. On their arrival at Eccles, IIi\ Huskisson was conveyed to tbe house of the Rev. Mr. . BlackUltrne, Vicar of Eccles, which adjoins the road, and the engine proceeded to Manchester, with Lord YVilton and Mr. Stephenson, to procure farther medical assistance. Fortunately, on the arrival of the Northumbrian at Manchester, Mr. Ransome, Mr. Whatton, and Mr. Garside, all eminent surgeons, were among tbe company on that part of Ihe road; and they immediately returned with Lord Wilton and Mr. Stephenson to Eccles. At first amputation was proposed, but the intention was subsequently aban- doned, it being feared that the operation would cause the immediate death of the patient. Towards even- ing he became more calm, and had sufficient strength fo make his will, and was also sufficiently composed to receive the sacrament; and at twenty minutes past nine o'clock he calmly and resignedly breathed his last ! At the Cathedral Church of Lichfield, on Wednes- day, the lie v. W. E. Coldwell, Rector of St. Mary's, Stafford, and the Rev. W. F. Hook, Vicar of Iloly Trinity, Coventry, were chosen to represent the clergy of the diocese of Lichfield and Coventry in the ensuing convocation;— For the diocese of Worcester, the Rev. J. W. Baugh, Rector of Ripple, and the Rev. Francis Mills, Rector of Barford, have been elected. individuals present. On the south of right hand line of the Railway, was placed a single engine,- the Northumbrian, to which were attached three carriages, the first, con- taining ihe band, the Second the Duke of Welling- ton, and a number of other persons of distinction, and ( he ( bird carriage the directors, and their friends. Seven othef engines, drawing twenty- nine car. riages, filled with proprietors and their friends, were placed on the north litte of the railway. The two first, namely, fhe Phtenix and the North Star, five carriages, the Pocket, three, and the f) art, Comet, Arrow, and Meteor, each four. These engines were built by Messrs. Stephenson. The arrange- ment of placing the Duke's carriage on a different line from that on which the main procession moved was fo gWe his Gracc and his party an opportunity of passing and repassing the other carriages, which was done several times during fhe journey, to allow of accelerating or retarding the velocity of his progress, and to shew him fhe power of the engines, without dragging the rest of the procession at a rate which might be inconvenient, and perhaps dangerous. By this means too the persons composing the main procession had more frequent opportunities of seeing the distinguished visitors than if the w hole were placed on one line. The carriages contained only 772 persons, to tbe bitter disappointment of nearly as litny more tbat expected to enjoy the same gratifi- cation. It was at one time expected that the directors would have been enabled to convey about one thousand persons to Manchester on this occasion; but llicir means of transport were curtailed by some very mortifying disappointments. The engines of Messrs Braithwaite and Erlcson, the Afielaide and; King William IV. from which so much was ex.- pected, ( and which certainly evinced a degree of ingenuity highly creditable to the inventors) have not, it is said, hitherto answered the expectations entertained respecting them ; at all events they were not in " working order" 011 Wednesday. In ad- dition to this disappointment, an engine constructed by Mr. Stephenson, and sent off from his works; ( leaf Newcastle, was detained 011 its way by an accident to a steam- boat at Carlisle, and could not reach its destination in time for the ceremony. The cortegc started at 2X) minutes before II, amid the most deafening shouts of the assembled multi- tude, accompanied with the waving of hats and handkerchiefs. The pace at starting was not par- ticularly rapid, being only about sixteen miles an hour, nnd did not exceed 24 miles an hour on any part of the line. At the Sankey viaduct, Ihe pro- cession halted for a few minutes, and tbe Duke, the Russian Charge d'Affaires, and some others of tlie party alighted to inspect this admirable piece of masonry upon which they bestowed unqualified admiration. The viaduct was rapidly passed, anil the engines entered on the Kenyon embankment, and at Parkside, seventeen miles from Liverpool, stopped to renew the feeders and take in a fresh supply of fuel. FATAL ACCIDENT TO MR. HUSKISSON."' We have hitherto spoken with pleasure of the day's proceedings. With. most sincere feeling we have to detail the particulars of a melancholy event which will excite sorrow throughout the empire; and make the loth of September be long regarded with general regret. Before starting from Liverpool, the company were particularly requested not to leave the carriages, and tbe same caution was repeated in the printed direc- tions describing the order of the procession. Not- withstanding this regulation, however, it appears. that Mr. Huskisson, Mr. William Holmes, M. P. and other gentlemen, alighted while tbe procession halted at Parkfield ( a little on the Manchester side of Newton), and walked about on the road. At this time three of the engines on the north rail, the Phcenir, the North Star, and the Itockct, had passed on towards Man- chester, and flic other four, the Dart, Comet, Arrow, and Meteor, were rapidly approaching. As the gentlemen who had alighted were preparing to re- enter the carriages attached to the Northumbrian, on the south line, Mr. Huskisson approached that part at which Mrs. Huskisson was sitting, when he caught the eye of the Duke of Wellington. A recog- nition immediately followed, the Duke extended his hand, which Mr. Huskisson advanced to take. While in the act of shaking hands, heralds' sounds announced the approach of the Dart engine, on the opposite rail; a cry of danger was instantly raised, and Prince Esterhazy was helped into the carriage by Mr. Littletoni the member for Staffordshire. Mr. Hus- kisson remained outside, and several voices exclaimed " come in"—" take care, Mr. Huskisson." He was at this time standing in the road between tbe two lines of railway, and had he remained in that situation no accident would have occurred, the two lines being about four feet distant from each other. Unluckily Return Hre htJ* to Hie sc'erie of the accident, and to resume the detail of tbe remainder of the proceedings of this eventful day. A consultation was next held by the party at Newton as to the course best to be adopted under these melancholy circumstances. The Duke of Wellington and Sir R. Peel were strongly desirous that the procession should be stopped, and return to Liverpool. After some consultation, how- ever, this proposal was relinquished, and it was finally agreed to proceed with the ceremony of openiiig the railway, to prevent, in some degree, the alarm and disappointment which must otherwise have been occasioned to the vast multitudes at the Manchester end of the line. The carriages of the duke and tbe directors were consequently attached to those which accompanied the Phosnif engine, and in this manner tbe whole proceeded at a slow pace towards Eccles, where a stoppage took place, while ( lie duke anil his friends made inquiry respecting fhe condition of Mr. Huskisson. As they proceeded towards Manchester, no display was permitted, and fhe bugles ceased th'eir sound. The crowds tliat cheered on every side met no kindfed response, and no doubt felt much surprised at the apparent want of courtesy in ( hose ( bey were anxious to compliment. The Northumbrian, with the duke and directors, & c. arrived in front of the company's warehouses, about a quarter before three, but the other engines and carriages did not arrive for some short time afterwards. The duke was received at his entrance with military honotirs by the 59th regiment, which was drawn up for the purpose. Crowds collected round his carriage, and he was principally employed till bis return in Warmly shaking their hands. Oil their arrival, the company proceeded to the upper rooms in the warehouses, and partook of a splendid dejeuner / l la fourchetts, provided by Mr. Lynn, of the Waterloo Hotel, Liverpool. The Duke of Wel- lington, however, declined, in consequence of the accident to Mr. Huskisson, to enter the rooms, and remained in the carriage, where some slight refresh- ments were handed to him. He was here fully occupied during the space of an hour and half that the rest of the company spent at breakfast, con- versing with his friends, and shaking hands with the hundreds who thronged around him for that purpose. During this interval the different engines had gone to Eccles. for a supply of water, and on their return Ihey were attached to the carriages to which they respectively belonged. The duke took his departure about ten minutes past four. He quitted six miles from Liverpool for ChildwalL Hall, the seat of the Marquis of Salisbury : tbe procession to which be belonged arrived at the tunnel at seven o'clock. The other carriages, twenty- one in number, did not leav Manchester, owing to the departure of their engines occasioned by some misdirection of orders, till half- past five o'clock. ' Ihey were conveyed in a line by the three remaining engines, and proceeded but slowly : tbey were met at the Kenyon Embankment bv the others, and did not arrive at Liverpool till ten o clock. DINNER AT THE WELLINGTON ROOMS. This entertainment, which was given by tbe directors of tbe railroad, was intended to be on scale of great magnificence, but, as might be ex pected under the circumstances, was but thinly attended. Neither the duke nor most of the dis- tinguished persons expected were present. Only forty- seven gentlemen sat down, among w- hom w- Mr. Brougham, who arrived at three o'clock, M Catcraft, M. P. Admiral Fleming, & c. Mr, Law- rence presided. „ the last session before nie, to give implicit, credence to King's sp'eeciieS. ffjear.) Cine or two taxes have been rediiced, but, give me leave to say, that when his Majesty's ministers have been charged with it in the House of Cortimons, 1 have never heard them deny the truth ofthe matter, that when that King's speech was delivered there was 110 intention of repealing arty taxes. It was in conse- quence of the universal cl- y which aroSe ai the commencement of the late session of parliament, which began in the country, and was repeated within the walls of parliament, that a reduction of taxation was forced upon ministers. fCjieers-) Now, gentlemen, 1 am not going to deny that tbe Duke of Wellington is entitled to great credit. I think that he had, in the session before last, the praise of knowing when to yield, f Cheeri.) But give me leave to say, that it is 110 proof whatever of his principles being altei- ed, and I can bring you proof before 1 sit down that they are ntit altered ( Cheers.) In the course of the last two years we have been negotiating aud treating with foreign nations. The country to which I allude was Greece. A proposition was made to embody Greece under a sovereign to be chosen by the great powers of Europe—^- England amongst the number. The boundaries were marked out, it being understood that it was to be subject to the Ottoman Porte.— In the course of these negotiations, however, arrangement was altered, and Greece was to be made independent of the Ottoman Pol'te ; and as soon as that was defeimiued, the limits of Greece were curtailed by the Duke of Wellington and his Cabinet; and that is a proof that the Duke of Wel- lington is no friend to freedom. ( Cheers.) But I will go further. Twelve months ago, some 2,000 unhappy Portuguese, expatriated from their country by the tyranny of one ofthe vilest tyrants that ever disgraced a throne, had sought refuge in tbis country. [ Here an elderly person of clerical appearance ni. de a remark which for a moment interrupted the speaker, but he was soon silenced, and the lion, gentleman proceeded ] These unhappy individuals were desirous of making efforts for the restoration of the constitutional government of Portugal. An island in the Atlantic remained faithful lo Donna Maria. That island they thought would be the lever upon which they could act to effect their object; but what said the Duke of Wellington ? He said to those men who had arms in their hands and were ready to serve ( heir legiti- mate sovereign, " You shall not go there as troops" ( which was the only way in which they could go there for any effectual purpose), but he said they might g- o there as individuals, two or three at a time—( cheers)-, and thus I am bound lo say that the Duke of Wellington is 110 friend of Portuguese freedom, and if he is not the friend of Portuguese eedom, I very much doubt that he is the friend of English freedom. 1 love freedom, and do not wish to be confined to any geographical limit; I love freedom iu Portugal, and 1 love freedom iu England, and 1 wish those who do not enjoy it to have the power of attaining it; and I say that the government which takes that power away is no friend to freedom. (" Cheers.) During the last two sessions of parlia- ment I have supported few of the plans brought forward by the Duke of Wellington ( with the exception of that great measure which was the glory of his life), aud when 1 have done so, I have always thought it necessary to guard myself from being supposed to have atiy immediate connexion with him. ( Applause) Before I connect myself ith any man 1 like to know what his principles are. Many men of good principles of government may be led to bad measures, but I find that there are more bad men forced into good measures ( chcers) ; because necessity has made the Duke of Wellington and Sir Robert Peel concede this mea- tre of religious liberty, and thus enable the lion, entleman (, YIr. Jerningham) who sits last but one on my l ight, to become eligible to sit in the Com. mons House of parliament; it is erroneous to attribute it to any change of their principles. They have, over and over again,- acknowledged that it was necessity which caused them thus to act; and 1 have heard that Sir R. Peel said that he wished things had been otherwise ; that his principles were unchanged, aud he wished it were possible for them to go on in the old train, f Cheers and laughter.) But I will go back to 1828, and inquire Vilio proposed the repeal of the Corporation and Test Acts. ( Cheers ) If there should chance to be in this room an individual; who thought it not ri"- ht to take the sacrament according to the rights ofthe chttreh of England, aud who now is qualified lo fill the office of an alderman of the City of York, we must not suppose that lie owes his present privilege fo the love of liberty entertained by the Duke of Wellington and Sir Robert Peel; and, therefore, if 1 drink the health of the Duke of Wellington, I do it as the hero of Waterloo, and to encourage him to adopt those measures; and give force to Ihe senti- ment which my hon. friend thought fit to attach to his name. ( Long and continued cheering) The Chairman— It gives me very great pleasure to hear Lord Milton declare that lie'has no objection to drink the health of the Duke of Wellington as the hero of Waterloo, with tli. e qualification that I have attached fo it; because it is the most anxious wish of myself as chairman, and 1 am sure it is the wish of of every member of the committee, that no toast should be given this evening in this room, that can give offence to any one present. ( Cheers.) 1 therefore, was extremely happy, to hear the com- ments upou that toast which have just been made by his lordship, and I hope we shall drink the Dtike of Wellington as Ihe hero of Waterloo, and in the hope that his ministry will promote a timely reform and economy in the state. The toast vvas then drunk. PREFERMENT.— The Lord' Bishop of St. AsapH has been pleased to appoint the Rev. Thomas Gorst Mtmlsdale,. nearly fifteett years perpetual curate of Llanfairtaliiaiarn, to the living of Hope, in the county of F| int. The announcement of the very extensive sale of Dishley. sheep has long, been communicated to the public ( hrbtigh the medium of the newspapers. Oti Tuesday, the ' jth instant, the day appointed, it took place. At a very early hour the company began to assemble to look over the stock, and at twelve o'clock the sale commenced. There were many hundred gentlemen and breeders from various places, Ireland, Scotland, Devonshire, Worcestershire, Shrop- shire, Durham, Yorkshire, & c. & c. The great num- ber of lots to dispose of ( nearly two hundred) ren- dered it necessary that every arrangement, should be made for the despatch of business; and it is but justice to Say that the excellent fcOridjtiori of ( he flock did infinite credit to Mr. Smith. There was great competition for many lots, and tbe company were highly satisfied with their purchases. Mr. Breary, the salesman, in a very neat address, complimented Mr. Smith, by remarking upon the very great succeSJ life has had in the improvement Of sheep. His long experience had plafced tiiiO amongst the most esteemed breeders in the kingdom ; but he knew he was ad- dressing nuriierous genilemeri whose pride it was to excel in the breed of sheep, and lie therefore should not presume to say that Mr. Smith's flock was su- perior to any other, but he considered that he might place them in competition witli sheep of any other gentleman's breed. The sale lasted for seven hours, without the least interruption— we cannot recollect so great a number of lots of valuable property ever being sold in one day.— Derby Reporter. WALKING MOUNTAINS in CALABRIA.— From each side of the deep valley or ravine of Terranuova, enormous masses of the adjoining flat country were detached and cast down into the course of the river, so as to give rise to great lakes. Oaks, olive- trees, vineyards, and corn, were Oftert Seen growing at the bottom of the ravine, as little injured as their com- panions from which they were separated in the plain above at least 500 feet higher, and at the distance of about three quarters of a mile. In one part of this ravine was tin enormous mass, 200 feet high, and about 400 feet in diameter at its base, which had been detached by some former earthquake. It is well attested that this mass travelled down the ravine near four miles, having been put in motion by the earthquake of the 5th of February. The momentum of the " terre movitine," or lavas, as the flowing mud is called in the country, is no doubt very great; but the transportation of masses that might be compared to small bills, for a distance of several miles at a time, is an effect which could never have been anticipated. — The first accounts sent to Naples of these two great slides or land slips was couched in these words : —" Two mountains on the opposite sides of the valley walked from their original position until they met in the middle of the plain, and there joining together they intercepted the course of a river," & c. — DyelCs Geology. HARD SWEARING.— We have heard of an Irish process- server who was so celebrated in this line, that it was said of him " he would swear an hole through an iron pot !" but the following beats him hollow :— At the late Gloucester Assizes, a person named Blakeinan was tried for sheep- stealing, aud while one of the witnesses was giving evidence of a confession, the prisoner exclaimed, " You are a false fellow ; you would swear a grey horse was a chandler's shop, and every hair upon his back a pound of candles." A new species of com from China has been introduced into Ireland, a sort of skinless oats, the most valuable produced in auy country. It has many advantages over other grain— when thrashed from the sheaf, it is exactly like oatmeal fit for immediate use, and free from rind or husk. The flavour is delicious, and it contains much farinaceous matter. There accrues, of course, a great saving of the o its ; and the expense of kiln- drying, grinding, and sifting, is avoided. Tile Svertlge produce is 20> barrels of 14 stone, to tbe Irish acre. It is remark- ably hardy, and well adapted for this climate.— Limerick Chronicle. RAILWAYS.— Should the Manchester and Liver- pool railway answer the expectations that are generally formed from that medium of conveyance, it is probable that it will be connected wilh the Leeds and Selby railway by a line from Leeds to Manchester, by way of Bradford and Halifax, surveys for which are at present making. There is also on the tapis a project for a general railway from London to Liverpool, by way of Northampton and Birmingham, and it is by no means improbable that from Northampton a line will extend along the eastern side of the kingdom to Selby, and ultimately to Newcastle and Edinburgh.— Leeds Mercury. WoNtJERFut, STRENGTH OF INSECTS.— Tho employ of the Dorr Beetle is to mine holes in the soil, remove the earth, and secrete the nuisances and incumbrances that may be found upon the surface ; and this no weak animal could accomplish ; but the strength of this beetle almost exceeds credibility. It has little power as a draught animal; but his busi- ness is to heave up the earth, entombing matters; and his muscular means appear to be situated in his legs, the upper joint of which is very large and firm. Having repeatedly placed one of these creatures, weighing 15 grains, tinder a weight equal to 4,796 grains, sufficient, it would be considered, to crush its body, 319 times its own weight! it heaved it up and withdrew ; and the same pressure, being placed on its leg, was immediately disengaged by the powers of the other. Man effects his objects by the reasonings of Tin: DUKE OF WELLINGTON. At a recent public dinner given to the Right Hon. Edward Poire, Lord Mayor of York, and High Sheriff of the County, some curious matter was broached in the shape of speeches, by certain of the Wlijg Noblemen and Gentlemen present; and as a specimen or. two may tend to show their senti- ments on the existing slate of affairs, as well as upon some past proceedings, we shall give an extract from Ihe report of the meeting. The Chairman gave—" The Duke of Wellington ; and may his Majesty's ministers promote a timely reform and economy in the state." Lord Milton, before the toast was drunk, rose and said— You will probably be surprised to see me rise iu this manner. If you do not interfere with me, 1 will interpose a few moments' delay, before you accede to the proposal which has been made to you by my I1011. friend ; but I think tbat the senti- ment which be has attached to the name of the Duke of Wellington and his ministers is a sufficient justification for my venturing to make one or two observations, before I raise to my lips the glass with which t have to drink his Grace's health. It behoves us to drink the health of that great hero, who dared to do what others would not, dare not to do ; but 1 am not, on the present occasion, asked to drink his health as the hero of Salamanca and Waterloo, but as the head of his Majesty's Cabinet. As I am one of an assembly which, in a short time, will be summoned to the capital of this empire— as 1 am a person who has a public character to main- tain, I owe it to myself, to you to explain Ihe sense in which 1 will drink that toast, and to add those qualifications to it which will secure my conduct against misconstruction ( Hear, hear), where it is of importance that neither my conduct, nor your conduct, nor opinions, should be misconstrued. ( Chcers.) I entirely agree with the sentiment Vhich iny hon. friend as thought necessary to add to this toast, because 1 am particularly desirous that his Grace and his Majesty's ministers should pro- mote a timely reform and economy in the state ( Cheers)-, and 1 think it exceedingly necessary that, in drinking his Grace's health he should understand that that qualification was appended to it. ( Great applause.) In the course of that long period during which I have had a seat in par- liament,! never remembera King's speech in which so much was promised ( hear, hear)-, and I will go lo the length of saying, that the performances of ministers have not come up to their promises. At a public dinner also recently given at Leicester, on the occasion of the election, Mr. Monday, the chairman, in introducing the health of tbe Duke of Wellington, said—" Had the Duke of Wellington slopped there, content with military fame, no one would have deserved the name of Briton, tbat did not worship the very ground lie walked upon. It is not the political character, it is not the Minister that I now oft'er to your notice.; the health which I now propose to drink in a bumper, is that of Field Marshal the Duke of Wellington, the victorious leader of the British army, the liberator of Europe, the conqueror of Napoleon." ^ Miscellaneous SntcUigenrf. We have received letters from Smyrna, to the 4th ii| l- which represent the Turks as very active in training and disciplining their troops. They are also augmenting rapidly their navy, but the de- ficiency of sailors is severely felt, their commerce being inadequate to the formation of a nursery for seamen. The Turkish merchant ships are few in number, aud consist chiefly of small craft. It appears that the sultan is adding diligently to his revenues, by laying new taxes 011 almost every article, so that, with due care, considering tlie great extent of territory, it is supposed that Turkey may speedily possess internal resources even more ex- tensive than before. The Sultan continues exceed- ingly active, and lias done much to improve botli the. army and navy. One striking piece of information is supplied by our correspondent, who states that a school has been established upon a large scale by the American missionaries at Smyrna, and that it has already met with great succcss. There had been a long succession of northerly winds at Smyr. ia, which rendered the heat very oppressive, and occasioned much sickness; they still prevailed at the date of our correspondent's letter, but much relief was derived from the inbat, or sea breeze. Freights for England were very low, but they were said to be good at Odessa. There was a great demand for grain at Marseilles. The French commodore sta- tioned in the roads fired a salute when the news of the surrender of Algiers arrived at Smyrna, and hoisted the French flag above tbe Algerine, refusing to listen to tbe representations of the French consul, who, apprehensive that it might be displeasing to the Pacha, and ultimately to the Sultan, had requested him to take the flag down.— Brighton Gazette. We are sorry to state that two- thirds of the land in Aylesbery parish is, or will be at Michaelmas next, to be let.— Berkshire Chronicle. TRADING STOCK OF FORMER TIMES.— In 1206 and 1301 a carpenter's stock was valued at a shilling, and consisted of five tools. Other tradesmen were almost as poor. A tanner's stnek was worth £ 9. 17s, lOd. being more than ten times any other. Tanners were principal tradesmen, the chief part of dress being made of leather. his mind, mechanical agencies, or the strength of others. Had he depended upon mere animal power to accomplish his wishes, in order to equal the means of a common beetle, he must have raised liis body from an incumbent pressure of perhaps twenty tons Our glow- worm requires all its facilities, retiring in autumn into the crevices of a stony or earthy soil, where it passes its inanimate hours. Before the spring arrives, all these passages by which it entered would probably be closed by the decomposition of the one or mouldering of the other, through the agency of frosts and rains; and it is thus probably endowed with strength and the faculty of contraction and flattening its body, in order that it may remove the weights, or squeeze through the impediments that check the return to light and warmth, and the accomplishment of Ibe purpose of its being. These are but lowly things to converse upon, creatures fashioned beneath in the earth ; yet, hallowed by their Creator's hand, they manifest his omniscience, anil we cannot but revere his wisdom and goodness. — Journal of a Naturalist. Third Edition. Loss OF THE NOTTINGHAM STEAMER.— Extract of a letter from Belfast, dated 11' th September, 1830 :—" 1 am truly sorry to inform you that intelligence has reached Belfast of the Nottingham being on shore at Larne, and the following are the particulars I have been able to. collect from the passengers several of whom are in town. About half- past nine last night the Nottingham passed Larne Lough, aud shortly after struck on a rock at Scarnaghan Point in island Magee, and nearly opposite the little Island of Muck. Immediately after she struck the engines were reversed, aud the topsails set ( the wind being off shore), and in about 15 minutes got off, and run about two miles from where she struck, when the water got so high in Ihe engine room lhat the files were put out, and she shortly after sunk in three fathoms of water on a sandy bank inside of Ihe Lough. From every information I can collect, I conceive Ihe vessel is now iu safety, inasmuch as there is " not any danger of her going fo pieces, and tlie breach made in her bottom cannot 1> e very severe, when she was able to run 3 miles after it. Capt. Bibbiu was on deck at lite time, and the regular watch forward, but tbe night was exlremely thick and dark, and lo this circumstance I suppose must be attributed thin unfortunate circumstance."
