SATURDAY's P O S T. LONDON, Thursday, October 21. Extract of a Letter from Ostend, Oct. 15 THE British Lion cutter ( so well known for the defence of her several cargoes, and more particu- larly for having, in a very masterly manner, out ma- noeuvred Capt. Thornborough, of the Hebe frigate, while in the smuggling employ) was sold here about eight days ago to the Dutch, for the enormous sum of 150,000 florins, and left this port for Kelvoetsluys, in company with the Charming Molly cutter of Folk- stone, carrying twenty guns, sold also, but for a much less sum. " The British Lion is esteemed here the fastest sail- ing cutter that ever was built, and I am sure that no- thing but the decisive effect of Mr. Pitt's late bills against smuggling, now nearly at an end, could have prevailed upon the late owners to have parted with her at any price. " The Wasp cutter of 24, and the Thunderer of 22 guns, are also sold to the Dutch, but are detained here by our Admiralty, alledging as a reason, that they are as able to pay for them as the Dutch. " Since writing the above, news is brought here by express, that the dispute between the Emperor and the United States of Holland, is at last come to an open rupture ; it is further added, that the Dutch have ac- tually taken possession of Ships, in Flanders, and of a small Imperial fort in its neighbourhood." Extract of a Letter from. Utrecht, Oct. 15. . " One of the German news- papers just received, ' has the following article : M. le Comte de Wassenaar, the Dutch Ambassador at Vienna, is making prepara- tions for his speedy departure ; and in consequence of an immediate war between the Emperor and the Seven United Provinces being deemed inevitable, the under- writers at Genoa, and in all parts of Italy, refuse, upon any terms, to. ensure vessels sailing under Dutch co- lours." The Dutch funds have fallen very considerably, in consequence of the opposition given to the Emperor's ships in the Scheldt. As to the report of the firing having taken place without design, there is an absur- dity on the face of it, as the ships were stationed there with no other view than to impede the passage of the Imperial vessels. Extract of a Letter from Naples, Sept. 12. " The royal squadron, on its return from the expe- dition againd Algiers, put into this port on the id instant. It came last from Carthagena, from whence it sailed on the 13th of August. The ships and crews are in good condition. All the officers have been pre- sented to the King, and were most graciously received. His Majesty, satisfied with the conduct of his men, of which the Spanish commander gave the best testimo- nies, and in compliance with the powerful recommen- dation of his Catholic Majesty, has been pleased to grant relief to the families of the small number of his subjects who lost their lives on that occasion : he hath granted pensions to the widows of Antonio Chitarino. Diego Brugnona, and Giovanni Agnone ; the first seaman of the second class, the next a soldier of the royal corps of volunteers of the marine, and the last a seaman of the third class, who arc to have the same pay which their husbands received. " His Majesty proposes also to reward the six indi- viduals wounded in the different attacks, independently of the gratification which they have already obtained, and to extend his favour likewise to the families of those who were killed or wounded in the gun- boat, No. 27, when he shall have received more circumstantial particulars of that unfortunate event. On Monday last, as one of the constables belonging to Greenwich, was conveying two prisoners to Maid- stone gaol in his cart, who were fully committed there for a capital felony, they stopped to dine, when one of the villains stole a knife, and in going along, the con- dable riding on the seat before, he took an opportunity to cut his throat, on which he fell from his seat, and shortly after expired. Two post- boys coming by se- qured them again, and with other assistance, conveyed them to the above prison, / On Sunday afternoon, as one Lucas, a constable, and an officer belonging to the Police, was coming through Chick- lane, observing a woman with a bundle, he accosted her with, " Well, mistress, what have you got there ?" To which she replied, with seeming confusion, " What's that to you ?" This brought on some strong suspicions'j he insisted on searching her, and for that purpose conveyed her into a public house. On opening the bundle it was found to contain up- wards of three thousand forged stamps for receipts ; and on more strict examination were also found a wedge of silver, weighing about six ounces, and two smaller pieces, which had evidently been in a crucible. From many circumstances there is great reason to be- lieve she is an accomplice with the man frequently ad- vertised in the public papers for having put off forged Bank notes, in different disguises, and is known in Bow- street under the appellation of Old Patch. She is about forty years of age, has the appearance of a Jewess, and is very guarded and cautious in every thing the says, and supposed to be capable of making very important discoveries, Extract of a Letter from Dublin, Oct. 6. " It gives pleasure to the well- wishers of this coun- try to perceive the late exports to America and else- where. Though not at present of so extensive a na- ture as may hereafter he expected, they serve to keep alive a commercial acquaintance, which will assuredly ere long widen into a more consequential and produc- tive intercourse. The importation of various fabricks which the establishment of manufactories here has precluded the necessity of continuing, added to the non- importation agreements, have bettered materially the Condition of those persons depended on our ma- nufactures;- and, though it mud be gradually effected, there is reason to hope, by a steady attention to the good quality of what'ever articles we may send to fo- reign markets, we shall partake largely of the trade which hitherto has been confined to Great Bri- tain." Extract of a Letter from Newbury in Berkshire. " Friday's post brought several letters to this place, among which was one addressed to the Mayor and Corporation, signifying that Mr. Blanchard and Mr. Sheldon had determined to pay a visit to Newbury in their atmospherical vehicle, and that they would de- scend in that fine extensive meadow behind North- brook- street, This news spread like wildfire through all the adjacent towns and villages. Saturday morn- ing the flag was displayed upon the Town- Hall; " and before noon the neighbourhood had poured forth all its inhabitants, who being joined in the meadow by great numbers from the surrounding towns and villages for many miles, a groupe of about two thousand was collected by one o'clock. The carpenters brought planks, and tressels being procured from the under- takers and other tradesmen, for supporting them, a sort of homely tables were formed, round which the rustics crouded to regale themselves with ale and cakes, the consumption of which greatly exceeded that, in the same space of time, at our annual fair. In the mean time, those in a more polishcd station formed themselves into small parties, keeping their optics im- moveably directed full in the wind's eye, momentarily expecting the organs of vision to be gratified by the appearance of the travellers in the trackless regions of the air. In short, till the near approach of even- ing, all was jollity and merriment : but as the appre- hension of being deceived increased, the good- humour of a large part of the company subsided. Disappoint- ment excited mirth in some, who laughed at each other's credulity : othere were sullen, and retired in silence, or muttering dissatisfaction." Thursday se'nnight, between eight and nine o'clock in the forenoon, a dreadful fire broke out in the dwelling- house of John Moor, at Abbotsbury, in Dor- setshire, which entirely consumed the same ; the wind blowing very drong at N. E. and the houses being all thatched, in the space of three hours, 21 other dwell- ings, with all the out- houses, and a large quantity of hay, corn, nnd hemp, were consumed, by which means the poor sufferers are reduced to the utmost distress. It is not certain how the fire began ; but it is thought to have broke out in the chimney. Sunday morning a fire broke out at Martin's Tower, a village about two miles from Dorchester, which in a short space of time consumed seven dwelling- houses, besides out- houses, and a quantity of wheat and other grain. A child in bed at the house where it began was terribly burnt in one of its legs, which was obliged to be amputated. Extract of a Letter from Edinburgh, Oct. 13. " We are informed, that a most extensive cotton manufacture is to be erected in the immediate neigh- bourhood of Lanark. The partners in this company are said to be George Dempster, Esq; Richard Ark- wright, Esq; of Cromford, in Derbyshire, who is just now on a tour through Scotland with Mr. Demp- ster, and an eminent merchant in Glasgow. " On Sunday the 12th of September last, between the hours of eight and nine in the morning, the water at the East- end of Loch Tay ebbed about three hun- dred feet, and left the channel or bed of the Loch quite dry, at that part where the water is usually three feet deep ; and being gathered together in the form of a wave, rolled on about three hundred feet farther to the West ward, until it met a similar wave rolling in a contrary direction. When these clashed together, they rose to the perpendicular height of about five feet, emitting a white foam on the top of the water. Then this wave so formed took a lateral direction Southward towards the shore, gaining upon the land four feet beyond the high water mark of the Loch at that time. Then it returned, and continued to ebb and flow every seven minutes for two hours, the wave gra. dually diminishing in size every time it reached the shore, until it wholly disappeared. It is to be ob- served, that, during this phenomenon, there was a per- fect calm. During the whole of that week, at a later hour in the morning, there was the same appearance, but not in any respect to the same degree." SUNDAY'S POST. LONDON, Friday, OCTOBER 22. Extract of a letter from Calais, Oct. 12. " The French are making a canal from the ditch of the citadel at the upper part of the harbour, leading to an extensive morass many miles within land, they say to drain it, and thereby gain a great extent of useful land ; the fact is not so, they are doing it to increase the back water of Calais harbour, by letting the sea further into the country every tide , which, with the addition of the springs from this extensive morass, will so increase the current upon the ebb as to scour out the sands of the harbour to a very great depth indeed. That will not only make Calais a rival and equally good port to its opposite neighbour Dover, but far superior, unless the English should keep pace with them in improvements. The French engineers are men of great judgment, and what they are doing at Calais is such a proof of it, as I fear we shall expe- rience in a future war; for I much mistake in what they are about, if the increase of back water they will obtain will not render Calais a good port, not only for the large privateers, but also for frigates, and far bet. ter than Dunkirk ever was. They have already agreed to lay out near 100,0001. sterling upon this work, and are likely to expend double that sum before it is compleat." A letter from Paris gives an instance of the danger there is in sending up lighted balloons. One of this description fell fome days ago on a building at. the fair of St. Laurent, where wild beasts are kept for show, such as lions, tygers, & c, providentially, however, the exertions of the firemen, and the place being tiled over, prevented the dreadful consequences which otherwise mud unavoidably have taken place. Sir James Long, who inherits all the Tilney estates, is supposed to be now one of the most wealthy com- moners in England ; his own fortune was rear 12,000l, per ann. and his late acquisition makes the aggregate not less than 30.000I. per ann. Wanstead- house is still to remain unoccupied. The Rev. Mr. Penneck, who on Tuesday last at- tended Justice Russel's funeral, was grossly abused by the rabble ; he received a violent blow on the side of the head with a bludgeon, and severe contusions on both his legs. Three different- attacks were made on Wednesday night last by the River pirates on the Westminster side above the Bridge, but fortunately all without success. They first attempted Mr. Heeker's yard, the stone- mason ; but being disturbed by the brave defence of a fine dog, they killed him, and took to their boat. They next endeavoured to get within the premises of Mr. Gaunt, a little further up tbe River ; but he owed his safety to a few terriers, who kept a noise while the villains could not get at them. The family were immediately roused, and the thieves decided. Having failed in these enterprises, they assaulted a lime barge, which had taken in a valuable, cargo of goods, and lay at anchor just above the bridge, in hopes of finding her unguarded ; but they were mistaken; for a blunderbuss was fired among them, and it is pro bable not without wounding some of them. They then sailed down the river. Yesterday morning about two o'clock some part of the gang of fresh- water thieves, as it is supposed, at- tempted to break open the accompting- house of Mess. Wallinger and Fletcher, in Millbank- street, West- minster. The shutters were broke open ; but the villains by breaking a pane or two of glass alarmed the family, in consequence of which they made a precipitate retreat, A large house dog they poison- ed, it is supposed, before they attempted to break open the house. To the PRINTER. SIR, BELIEVING you to be a frend to humanity, I bespeak a place in your paper for a short address to the advocates for a Tax on Dogs ; the idea of which, being now publicly adapted and recommended Hath found many friends, In behalf, therefore, of an useful race of animals, about to be doomed to per- dition. I appeal to the good sense and humanity of the British nation. The smallest tax that can be levied, even such an one as would product little more than the expence of collecting it, would doubtless be the means of de- stroying an infinite number of these creatures. Its proportion as the sum is augmented the destruction will be still greater, and thus the tax be rendered inefficient. Whoever confers this, as well as the difficulty that would be found in identifying the per- son to whom a dog belong's, will not form very san- guine expeditions fiom this pitiful resourcej Dogs have been the companion of mankind in all ages, and in all countries, Where the cow and sheep are withholden. even there is the dog constantly found. They have forsaken the woods to come and inhabit our houses ; thev bear hunge patience, and ac- cept the smallest relief with gratitude -- are sa- tisfied with a kind look, and the restr— ... our pie- vision ; thev feed on the bones we have picked ; they are the guard of our infancy, and the companions of our youth. In short, whoever considers there love of mankind, their agreeable manners, their attachmeat to their particular masters, and hatred to his foes ; the various qualities so peculiarly adapted to our ser- vice and society, will be led to think that the Sove- reign of Nature has bestowed the dog on mankind, as a steady friend, a cheap servant, and an agreeable companion. In the annals of ten years there may be found per- haps ten persons who have perished by the cannie mad- ness ; for this reason alone; some in their zeal to pre- serve mankind seek to slay them, and for the offence of a few, doom the whole race to destruction, not reflecting on the other hand how many lives have been preserved bv their means, how often their sagacity has discovered the murderer ; their vigilence terrified the midnight robber, and their instinct preserved the infant when struggling amid the waves, Others as- sume an appearance of regard for the poor, and tell us that the dogs they maintain, devour part of their provsions which ought to be applied to t i own subsistence; but as no poor man is compeled to keep a dog, let us leave him to manage his property as He likes best, satisfied that if he voluntarily chooses to do it, it is because he finds a gratification in their society, equivalent to the expence he contracts on that account. The day on which the tax commences, thousands of these miserable animals will be dragged through our streets, some to be shot to death, others to be suffocated in the rivers; the trees will be loaded with their carcases ; they will be given up to the cruelty of the rabble, and the malice of school- boys. In what manner the promoter of this scheme will find himself affected on that day I know not. I would not have these bloody scenes to answer for to God and my own conscience for his whole inheritance. I think I see the poor man with an heavy heart, un- able to pay the tax exacted from him, compelled to seize his faithful dog, the companion of his walks, the playmate of his children, and the watchful guardian of his property, I behold him binding the fatal stone about his neck, and while he immerses the wretched animal in the stream, I hear him curse the cruel laws of his country, which Have reduced him to this sad necessity. Our streets no longer en- livened by their playful tricks, will be dull and me- lancholy ; those putrid mortals which are now re- moved by the constant attention of these useful crea. tures, will offend our senses, and numberless sorts of vermin will thrive and multiply. Why must the mischievous monkey, the selfish cat, parrots and cockatoos of all descriptions, escape the comprehensive views of financering ; and this kind, this generous beast alone be singled out, I conclude with recommending a short story to the attention of your readers. In the year 1613. Sultan Achmet the first, being disturbed at the noise of the dogs, banished them all from Constantinople to E- kutari, where he not only refrained from killing them, but allowed a daily portion of flesh and bread for their subsistence; let us learn justice and compas- sion from this generous infidel, and forbear to per- secute these sociable animals for the sake of a paltry sum, or without Having better reasons than those com- monly alledged, A.

LIN GO L N : G A Z E T T E E R I MONDAY's POST. LONDON, Saturday, OCTOBER 13. Extract of a Letter from. Paris, Oct. 18. \ " The news of the Dutch having commenced hosti- lities against the Austrian ships in the Scheldt has been received here, and gives general uneasiness, as it may finally involve France in a quarrel With the Emperor, at a time when we have most reason to wish for and cultivate peace. "* The Spanish Ambassador has daily conferences with the King's Ministers, though we do not expect any thing but the plans of commerce now in agitation ' to be the cause of such frequent interviews, the En- glish not being immediately concerned in the dispute between the Emperor ef Germany and the Republick of the States- General." Inspruch, Sept. 22. For these last eight days Mount St. Martin has exhibited an awful spectacle. The forests that cover it took fire, and the flames still continue to rage with great violence, in despite of all the endeavours of several thousand men to stop the ' progress. Thirty thousand cords of wood are already destroyed. • Rome, Sept. SO. The Apostolic Missionary, father Montegazzi, is returned to this capital from Ava in Asia, accompanied by two idolatrous priests whom he had converted to Christianity, and three young Moors, who have received baptism, and are to be placed in the College de la Propaganda for education. Letters from Amsterdam, dated Oct. is, mention, that every thing in that city bears the face of hostile preparations. The burgomasters and merchants of Zealand have subscribed a large sum to raise a corps of 2000 light troops. Their caps are to bear on their front the arms of the province, with the following Pulchra pro Liberate," For beauteous infeription, Liberty. Extract of a Letter from Middleham in Yorkshire. " Sincc I wrote to you last, an extraordinary affair happened here : A reputable married tradesman ( whose name is L—-) had been attempting to use some violence of a particular nature to his servant girl. She next day complained to the neighbours; the story with amazing rapidity run from mouth to mouth through the whole village, when a mob of people arose, beset his houfe, and took him prisoner. They proceeded much after the Irish form, but with more decorum for after having instituted a tribunal of justice their own, with proper officers ( pro tempore) they passed sentence, that the culprit should be treacled and feathered, and carried in a chair upon a hand- barrow, on the shoulders of two tall men, round the village ; which sentence was most rigorously put in execution, to the no small diversion of the inha- bitants. Being thus disgraced, he obtained a warrant to carry some of the ringleaders to a neighbouring magistrate ; but the magistrate, like an honest country Squire, upon hearing the parties, he thought the tradesman merited the punishment inflicted upon him ; and, finding the precedent new in England, advised him to pocket this outrageous insult, and dismissed the prisoners. If this is to be the case, your courts cf law at Westminster might as well be shut up, when such justice, without much trouble or expence, can be administred at home." Wednesday morning a very eminent merchant in Coleman- street shot himself through the head, in a room adjoining his ' compting- house, while a friend whom he had invited to breakfast, was waiting for him in the parlour. The deceased has left a wife and nine children, who fortunately were at the country- house when the melancholy event happened, which is supposed to be occasioned by various disappointments, but particularly in not receiving remittances from America, where he had sent goods to a considerable amount. Tuesday afternoon a battle was fought in the place called the Hollow, between the upper end of Goswell- street Road and the City Road, between the noted Death and one Hill, a dustman, for ten guineas a side. After fighting near 20 minutes, Death acknowledged his adversary to be the conqueror. General Boyd, who distinguished himself at the siege of Gibraltar, is to have the red ribband, vacant by the death of Sir Eyre Cootc. This compliment has peculiar propriety, in so far as that, independent of General Boyd's military merit, he is allied to the late possessor. The Earl of Bellcarras is certainly appointed to go out to India second in command to General Camp- bell. This advancement has taken place exactly through the same interest, as that of the Commander in Chief— through the recommendation of Mr. At- kinson. The public have been deluded, in a print at the devotion of Ministry, with the story of General Sloper's appointment. It is true, that General Sloper was a candidate ; but we can pledge ourselves on the truth of our first intelligence, that Mr. Atkinson's friend, a General Campell, is the man, speech occurred, until he again exclaimed, " And to say with Mr. Pope, Sir,— An Irish wag, tired with the verbal vacuity Of the speaker, said. " I see plainly, my Jewel, you cannot say with Mr. Pope at all, therefore, I beg you'll go 0n and say without him." ' The Balloon Handkerchief is much worn ; the ap-, ' pearance of it is promising and balloonfies the bosom ' to a magnitude, at least capable of raising one person from the earth. Among the variety of questions which have been asked Mr. Lunardi respecting his aerial journey, none was more natural than that which was put by the Lord Mayor, the day he dined with the Judges in the city ; who no sooner saw the hardy adventurer, than he ex- claimed, " Pray, Mr. Lunardi, did not the air get you a great appetite." A correspondent desires us to recommend his wife to Mess. Blanchard and Sheldon, and the other flying - Gentlemen, as a proper person to furnish their ma- chines with gaz. She has inflammable air enough at her command to set in motion all the balloons in Eu- rope. Five minutes conversation with her will con- vince any person of the truth of his assertion, as she can, by her breath only, set a whole neighbourhood in a flame at any time. Mess. Blanchard and Sheldon both declared, that during their voyage they continued in high Spirits this we think nobody will doubt, from the altitude to which they were raised in the atmosphere. It hath been just discovercd that the phaeton in which the freebooters rode, who lately robbed Mr. Burke's house, had an Earl's coronet on it , but from the turnpike- man not being able to trace any thing like consistent heraldry on the pannels, it is supposed to belong to one of the new created Peers- The Spanish hat and feather bids fair at present to eradicate the balloon from the heads of our pretty women; they being resolved for once - to have weight in appearance, however light they may be in reality. The reason assigned for the expulsion of the balloon hat among our young Ladies, is said to be, their having found by experience, that if they make one of inflam mable matter, they are not likely to go off. Every knee of the amorous tribe displays a fillet in- scribed LUNARDI ; the Chevalier has surely a plea to stile himself a knight of the Garter. Mr. Pillon's new farcc is called Aerostation, the Covert- Garden manager is now engaged filling it, not with inflammable matter, but some of the most vaporous performers of his stock, which, for his sake, it is to be hoped, will long keep it afloat. It was observed of the Ladies who bestrode. the. trees to see Blanchard ascend; that they shewed an il- liberal prepossession in favour of Lunardi, by display- ing garter's inscribed with his name. The balloon influenza is very rife among the Ladies. Mr. Lunirdi every day rceeives letters from fair peti- tioners, requesting to accompany him on his next tour to the regions of bliss ! It is thought that the CITY ARTILLERY are the most formidable corps in Europe ; as after the late flight of Mr. Lunardi, they attacked and beat down the walls ( if two brick venison pasties, carried the out- works of twelve pies, and dislodged two tur- tles, at the London Tavern ; and there is an idea that some powder will be granted them the first moment they can be brought to stand fire ; but the master of the ordnance thinks this will never happen. Clouds and fogs were considered formerly as emblems of dullness, at present we find philosophers getting into the clouds to discovcr new lights, and endeavour to inform the world by losing sight of it ! The Ministerial Prints modestly boast that the East India Company has flourished ever since Mr. Pitt came into Administration: no wonder they should, since by taking off the duties on teas, and leaving the price in the power of the Company '( which they have so generousy availed themselves of, by selling them at the same rate as formerly) he has kindly made those vir- tous men an annual present of Six HUNDRED THOUSAND POUNDS, and that at so trifling an expence t0 the public as merely by imposing an easy, an equitable DUTY ON WInDOWS-- a tax of which nobody complains Mr. Pitt has taxed soap, and the nation may go with dirty linen, but this tax 1s qualified by his im- post upon windows and candles, as we are thereby deprived of light to Contemplate the state of filth to which he has reduced us. Although there was very little business done last Saturday week at the Stock Exchange, there, were se- veral transfer's to a great amount made in the neigh- bourhood of the Military Academy ; several Gentle- men complained that for want of touching the regulator their watches went to fast ! T! thousand disciplined ; 2dly, that there is not a man in every town, who is not in fact sol- dier ; that all the places, both on the frontiers and in the interior parts, are fortified hy nature and art so as to defy the united strength of the empire ; 4thly, that their High Mightinesses, by the disposition Which they have shewn to employ foreigners in their service, can, it they think proper, gather more than 300,000 brave soldiers from all parts of Europe, even from Germany and England. Utrecht Gazette. Kingston, Aug. We hear from Kildare estate, in St. George's that a few days ago, a party of five new Coromantee negroes, and another negroe who had been longer in the country, all belonging to that estate, conceiving themselves- ill- treated by the overseer for punishing one of their wives, resolved to take ample revenge for the supposed indignity ; for which pur- pose they had a private meeting, at which their leader, whose name was Charles, having made an incision on one of his arms, obliged his associates to suck the blood as it flowed warm fiom the wouiid, by which, and some ether infernal ceremonies, they bound them- selves in a solemn league, to murder every white person on the estate, and to stand by each other to the last extremity. In consequence of this, bloody resolution, they forthwith armed themselvres, and seized upon the over- seer and a bricklayer, belonging to the estate, both of Whom they were about to dispatch, but the latter falling upon his knees, and implored mercy in the most moving terms, they consented to spare his life, provided he would kiss the sole of each of their feet, as a token of his submission. which being assentcd to on his part, the oversecr took an opportunity, while the ceremony of killing was in agitation, to fly to a large fowl house near the spot. which he luckily reached and made the door fast : The conspirators leaving the bricklayer, immediately pursued the fugitive, and attempted to force into the place of his retreat ; by cutting away the wattles with their bills, while, he made his escape out of a back door in the garden, and mounting a horse that was ready - saddled at the bottom of the garden, which his boy, who had been an eye witness to the whole transaction, had generously pro- vided for him, he alarmed several gentlemen on the neighbouring estates, and a party ef the maroon negroes, Who, after arming themselves, proceeded to the estatc to seize the insurgents : Upon the approach of this force, the conspirators took to their heels and endeavoured to effect thcir escape, but being closely followed, - they turned upon their pursuers and a bloody contest ensucd, in which five of the rebellious negroes were wounded and taken prisoners, at the con- clusion of a stout resistance, and their leader, Charles, who obstinately refused to be taken alive, was slain, after being shot through the body three several times. One of the gentlemen and one of the maroon, were also wounded, though not dangerously.' The Coro- nor's inquest examined the body of Charles and brought in their verdict, " Killed in open rebellion.: " In . consequence of which a magistrate ordered his head to 1 be cut off and stuck upon a pole over the mill- house, and his body to be burnt, which was accordingly car- ried intlo execution. . - Extract of a Letter fr0m Hertford, 0ct. 21. " Our hop- picking is over, and cyder- making- com- menced. The crops of apples this year, particularly - the red- streak have been so abundant, that from small Orchards, where, in the bcst year, they have made only five, the produce this year is eleven hogshcads.

" Saturday a child at Ipswich, a year old, was left tied to a chair by the fire, while the mother went to a neighbour's, and before she returned, the child was burnt in so terrible a manner, that it died next day.

In a society called the Cieesonians, at the west end of the town, a pious looking orator rose to speak to - the question of the evening, and after conveying a few incongruous ideas, in language pitifully poor, he had recourfe to Mr. Pope, in order to elucidate the subject, addressing himself to the president, he en- thusiastically ejaculated, " And to say with Mr Pope, sir,—,— herw a temporary suspension of the faculty of When Commodore Thompson was lately in his Majesty's ship Grampas, 0n the African coast, he found, to his surprise, that the French, in violation of the Preliminary Articles of Peace, had taken pos- session of Albrida, at the mouth of the river Gambia. — This circumstance, we hear, has been properly re- presented to the court of Versailles : but notwith- standing the spirited remonstrance of Mr. Crawford upon that head ; n0 satisfactory answer has been ob- tained from the French Ministry. Extract of a Letter from Bristol, 0ct. 23. " Thursday morning a most cruel premeditated murder was perpetrated by John Collins on Rebecca Butler, in Lewin's- mead in this city, the particulars of which are as follow : — The murderer had for four or five years lived and cohabited with this woman, by whom he had two children, but some disagreement arising a few weeks ago, she dropped the connection, and formed an acquaintance with one Butler, to whom she was soon married. Since that event took place, it appears that Collins has been meditating revenge against this unfortunate woman.-— Sunday last he called upon her, and shewed evident intention of mischief, but by the interference of neighbours, he was prevailed on to retreat from her habitation with- out doing any ill; but that diabolical passion, Revenge, reigning predominantly in his heart, op Thursday morning, he watched the departure of the husband to his work, and then stole secretly to his lodging, which was up two story, and on entering the room, he seized the poor woman, who was dressing herself, and gave her two fatal stabs with a knife in the throat.- Some shoemakers, who occupied and worked in a room on the first floor, were alarmed by the scuffle, and were proceeding up stairs to see what was the matter, when they met Rebecca Butler coming down the stairs, and Collins behind her, with his hands over the wounds; she then muttered out, that the villain ( or rogue) has murdered me, and going into the shoemakers room, fell down, and shortly after expired, without uttering another word. The shoemakers, with other help, | then secured the villain, and by the order of a magi- strate, he Was Conveyed to Bridewell. Upon inspect- ing the body of the deceased, her arm and breast, were found to be cut also, judged to be done in opposing his attempts to cut her throat. The same afternoon the-. Coronor's inquest sat on the body and the Jury brought in their verdict wilful murder against the said John Collins, on which he was committed to Newgate, to take his trial at our next gaol delivery. On that day he expressed some satisfaction that his revenge was fully gratified, but we heard last night, that he attended prayers yesterday at the. chapel 1n Newgate, wept- bitterly, and shewed evident signs of sorrow and con- trition ior the heinous offence he had committed. He is strongly ironed, and every precaution is taken to prevent his making away with himself; he is an Irishman, and declares himself a native of Rackeen, near Limerick." WEDNESDAY'S POST. LONDON, Monday, OcTOBEr 25, This day arrived a Mail from Holland. Utretcht, 0ct. 19. The Austrian and Dutch armies are not yet in sight of each other, but we already may fancy them drawn up, and ready for battle. The Commanders of twelve hourqucs and armed gallies have received orders to station themselves immediately, so as to block up the ports of Flanders. The Austrian troops are in motion on the side of Zandvliet; in the neighbouring villages, quarters are ordered to be pro- vided for 2000 men. Nothing is in prospect but sieges, battles, defeats, and victories. And if, after what happened on the 8th of this month in the Scheldt, we may consider the war as begun ; Brussels, Mons, Antwerp, and Namur will soon change their masters, and the Republick of Holland double its domains. And if the great attacks are not made until the spring, and if the German troops profit by that delay to cross the empire, and appear in the Austrian Netherlands, even in this case the United Provinces alone, and without allies, will be able to face their enemies, should their number even be 200,000. This assertion may appear presumptuous to them who are ignorant, first, that the Republic has from 3o to 40 LONDON, Tuesday, OCTOBER 26. Munster, Sept. 20. The 12th of next month is appointed for the ceremony of enthroning the Elector of Cologne, in quality of Prince Bishop of this city ; and splendid preparations are making for this solemn occasion. Extract of a letter from Bruges, 0ct. 15. " The Prince of Liege has given orders for all the regiments in Flanders to be ready to march at the shortest notice ; the regiments lying here are provided with twenty rounds of powder and ball each man,, and hold themselves in readyness to move at a moment's warning;. The Prince is set off this day for Antwerp. - "' The garrison of Sluys is augmented to 6,000 men ; the ferry which past from thence to Flushing is stopt ; as are those on all the waters from Flanders to Zealand ; and no persons are permitted to pass to or from any of the towns or villages without passports ; all lodgers are also examined with the most scrupulous exactness.; and the inn- keepers have received instruct- ions on the same head." Authentic letters from Ostend mention, that Lieut. Col. Joseph Wall, who was some time since advertised in the Gazette, ( in consequence of being charged with murder during his residence at Gorce) was lately mar- ried there, to Miss Catherine M'Kenzie, a young lady of great beauty and merit, descended from a noble fa- mily. The new- married couple, as the above advises inform us, set off a few days after for Pisa, in Italy. A gentleman who was a spectator of the King of Prussia's late reviews, nt which his Royal Highness the Bishop of Osnaburgh assisted, was much surprized that among the rising competitors for martial fame, scarce a British officer attended this great military parade. The English regimental did not shine but this tempting occasion : he recollects- however, that he saw the uniform of the Guards, which. was worn by a young gentleman whom he recognized to be a Cap- tain and Adjutant In that corps. To the P R I N T E R. " Impell'd by honour, and compell'd by shame, " She hazards being to preserve a name." SIR. IT was no small mental distress that I read in . one of your late papers, the unhappy catastrophe at Sutton Crothorne , in Somersetshire, where Ann Day was delivered of a child, which she afterwards destroyed, and then made an attempt upon her own life. Good God! to what a phrenzy had the event of. one guilty moment driven an unhappy girl You tell us she is in the very bloom of youth, descended of re- r putable parents, and that the cause of those rash acti- ons may be laid to a young man who had courted and deserted her.--- Well may the Poet exclaim-,' Trust not a Man, he is by nature false." To this ungenerous and base villain may be imputed the tragedy already acted, and the horrid scene yet to come. When the faculty have reported this unhappy woman recovered of from bodily infirmities, ( her mind who shall restore!) she must be removed to a loathsome gaol there to drag out a dreary winter, then undergo a painful trial in a crowded court, and lastly to close her wretched exist- ence suffer an ignominous public death. And such is the, inequality of our laws that the seducer, the original cause of this scene of bloodshed remains un- attainted, unpunished. I trust is not intirely so but that the stings of a guilty conscicnce, and the remem- brance of the victim of his lawless passion shall haunt him through life! Like Cain he will seek a resting place and find none, for a wounded spirit who can bear! These reflections led me to consider the law; of this country for the prevention of murder in cases of bastardy. The 6th volume of the mcdical enqui- ries contain; an essay upon the signs of murder in infants, which I could wish were always to be read in a court of Justice before the trial of the prisoner, it is not less fraught with medical knowledge than huma- nity, and does infinite honour, to the head and heart of the late great author Dr. Wm. Hunter. The bastardy laws of England, Mr. Printer, reflect a foul disgrace upon an enlightened nation. It is to those laws we may justly impute most of the horrid trage- dies which await unlawful intcrcourse. Deserted by him who ought to be her dearest and moet affectionate friend, overwhelmed with shame and agonized with pain, the wretched female, frantic with despair, sacri- fices the innocent cause of her misery ; that babe which in any situation but the present, the mother would preserve at the price of her own life now dies, destroyed by the cruelty of its father and the merciless law. The day is I hope not far distant, when the man who has seduccd a female will be compelled to marry or portion her as she shall prefer, ard that amongst the several taxes imposed there will be one for building a foundling hospital in every county through the kingdom, an asylum for the wretched where they may lay their burthens down, fearless of reviling and the finger of scorn, and where the little innocents shall rcceivc that assistance and education which may render them in time valuable members of society. I am not an advocate for illicit amours, but for the honour of humanity, let a means be found to rescue the babe from the hands of despair, and pre- serve the mother at least a penitent example if not a useful membcr to society, HUMANUS, BEELSEY, Lincolnshire.

It is remarkable that his brother, about Six years- ago, wss killed on the spot by a fall from a Scaffold On Friday as a man at Kirton was leaping his horse, - he fell over his head, and expired immediately. On Saturday the windmill at Hibaldstow was blown down ; the miller was found with his brains dashed out; two boys, who were with him, fortunately escaped unhurt.

We hear from Chester that the linen- ships, which had been . detained by contrary winds from arriving time enough for the fair held in that city, are now Safe ' . arrived at that port. On Friday night the 15th instant, one Robert Durham, who for about a fortnight past, had lodged at Mr. Leeson's in Town- hall- lane, Leicester, com-, mitted the following robbery, and got off with the ar- ticles undiscovered. About 12 o'clock at night he entered the apartment of some Other lodger' in which were two beds and two men in each ; from one of the bed's head, he stole two watches, and also took con- siderable quantity of wearing apparel. He is a low fel- low in Size, dressed in blue cloaths, by trade a gar- dener. Is Supposed to have gone, off in the coach the, same night, On Sunday se'nnight the following convicts were taken from the county- gaol at Derby to be Conveyed. to the bulk on the Thames, where they are to labour as follows, viz. Joseph Allen and Samuel Campion, for fivc years each ; Thomas Wragg, George Limb, Thomas Chapman, George Jackson, Thomas Arnold, and William Heath, for the term of three years each, They were conveyed on the outside of the Coach, and on their way between that place and Northampton, they broke open a gentleman's box, from whence they stole a pocket- book, containing a bank- note, value. 10l. and 101. in cash, with many other things of value, Immediately on their arrival at Northampton, a general search was made to recover the stolen property, when the pocket- book, with its contents, was found in Allan's breeches, who is Said to have behaved very ill on the occasion.- Patience Elsam, tried at our last assizes for Setting fire to the dwelling house of William Golding of Ingoldsby in this county, and Sentenced to be hanged for the Same, is ordered for execution on Friday the 12th of November next, Wednesday se'nnight was married at Hull, the Rev: Thomas Tate, vicar of Sheriff- Hutton, to Miss Fox of the former place; an agreeable and accomplished yOung lady, with a genteel fortune.. Last week Mr. Jonathan GouldSon, hatter at Che- ster, was convicted before the Sitting magistrates, of selling a hat, not having the stamped label affixed therein, and fined in the penalty of 10l. but it being the first offence, they were pleased to mitigate it to 5l. with costs. On Wednesday se'nnight died at Mr. Dinsdale's surgeon in Otley, in the 46th year of his age Mr. Christopher Pryme, of Hull, merchant. A few days ago died, Mr. Joseph Moore, jun. mer- chant, at Hull. A vessel belonging to Liverpool was lost the last week going into Dublin, and all on board perished. At Leicester cheese fair last week, some of the best- dairecs sold for 34s. per cwt. from 31s. to 33s. were general prices. Horses and cattle in general did not sell so high as was expected ; and sheep Sunk about 2l. a score from the price they were supposed to have fetched. There was a very great fair of sheep in par- ticular, and gave a flat contradiction to the opinion which had prevailed, that the wool- dealers had con- spired amongst themselves to export all the wool; and had likewise sent the sheep. after it to France. On Tuesday, at Gainsborough, one Joseph Creasy, a coal- porter, was thrown down by a horse, and hurt in so terrible a manner that his life is despaired of.

On Wednesday was apprehened at Smalley in Der-;, byshire, Thomas Cook, the prisoner who broke out of Nottingham gaol a few weeks ago He was taken before John Radford, and by him ordered back to, his old apartments.

Last week was brought into our deeps by two fishing cutters the French ship Le Mareschal de Cas- tries, burthen . about five Hundred tons, Captain Pierre Couvrier, laden with oak timber, from Hambro' for Brest, for the service of the dock- yard. ' The above cutters met with her in great distress upon the coast of Norfolk having lost her rudder and two anchors. Last week put in here his Majesty's cutter the Speedy, Capt. Rogers, stationed to cruise off this coast against the smugglers Last week the Boston Packet, from Hull, laden with salt, & c. after delivering part of her cargo on the Main, near Anderby, sprung a leak, and was obliged to be run on shore, where she has since gone entirely to pieces, the crew and remainder part of the cargo were saved. The Favourite, Capt. J. Gilderdale, in coming through Yarmouth- Roads, fell foul of a large ship, and tore her main- sail so much that the vessel could not proceed without having it repaired. The Captain having got it into the boat to carry on shore, was himself, with three of his crew, washed overboard, and unfortunately drowned. POSTSCRIPT. LONDON, Wednesday, OCTOBER 27 On Tuesday last Both Houses of Parliament were further prorogued to Thursday, the 2d of December, next. We are informed from good authority, that the Dutch have sent, orders to the merchants of Cork and Belfast, to prepare with, all expedition beef and pork for victualling ten sail of the line. This is a proof that the States do not mean to submit tacitly to the Emperor's design of ruining their commerce, Now that America is become a separate power, to- tally unconnected with Great Britain, and almost as inimical to her as France, it Seems something surprising that we should still continue the laws originally made here for the encouragement of these modern Neroe . who the instant they have strength successfully aimed a dagger at their mother's heart. Why, for instance are the people of this country, still prohibited from the culture of tobacco ? It will thrive exeedingly well in this climate, and even in the poorest soil ; It would give bread to thousands, who to the irre- parable loss of the nation, emigrate to America: and who might with equal emolument to themselves, and much advantage to their country, rais'e that plant in England as well us in Virginia or Maryland. Last Friday night- between the hours of eight and nine, Wm. Ogilvie, late a schoolmaster in Newcastle. Upon Tyne, now in Wapping, was attacked in Black. . lane, foot of Rosemary- lane, by three men, who rob- bed him of 1l. 9s, and two pen knives, not contented. with his money, they returned, and covering his face with a cloth, they stripped him of his hat, coat, wais- coat, shirt; neckcloth, and shoes, in that deplorable Situation they left him almost suffocated; when his. Senses returned, be called out murder, when two Watchmen came, and immediately entered some sus- pected houses, but found none of his property. BANKRUPTS.

A Constant Reader's Account of a Marriage at Boston cannot have a Place in our Paper, being too personal. G. C. on Thursday next, at Mrs. Straw's, the Roebuck,. A very celebrated physician is just arrived from the continent, who is particularly famous for the cure of very desperate disorders, and it is said means to prac- tise on a very large scale in this kingdom. He has already given fome advice, gratis, in certain cases which have been thought incurable. He has advised Lord N— to retire, study the whole Duty of Man, with spiritual exercises for penetent Sinners. He has advised his Colleague to forego the opinion, that he is now as popular as he was before the coalition. He has advised Mr. Sheridan to leave politics altogether, and write plays for Drury- lane theatre. He has advised Mr. Burke not to speak above ten minutes at any time, and, if possible, throw a new light upon the subject of his discourse. He has advised the Duke of P d to confine himself to close study, and endeavour to procure some- thing to say for himself. He has advised Lord L— borough to fear God, and honour the King. He has advised Mr. Pitt not to be deluded by evil councellors, nor to regard their aspersions and clamours. He has advised Mr. Dundas to study the English language, and, if possible, speak it. He has advised the whole blue and buff sqad, to avoid the least mention of private character and inte- grity. He has advised a certain patriotic Alderman not to be ambitious of being a Dutch Burgomaster, and to leave off raving about Republicanism. He has advised the Court of Aldermen and Common Council to live temperately, and abstain from strong drink, and seasoned dishes on next Lord Mayor's day. He has advised play- writers not to be more fond of their pieces than other people are. He has advised the Perdita, the Bird of Paradise, and a few more ladies of the same character, to live. soberly, chastely, and religiously in this life,, and leave swearing and drinking for praying and fasting. He has advised the enemies of ministry to endeavour to fabricate some other stories, than that every body is blocking up their windows. He has advised the Dutch to apply themselves to such devotions as are suitable, previous to being turned off. He has advised the writer of these lines not to say more in his favour at present. The success of Mr. Blanchard's fourth voyage, has not only entirely removed the doubts of the unbeliev- ers in this land of solid sense, but has occasioned, in the breasts of many, both male and female, the strong- est ambition to ascend, were not the expence too great for many whose spirits are above their fortunes, Mr. Jean Pierre Blanchard is, we understand, a native of Audley, a village in Normandy, and had rendered himself well known in France long before the discovery of the aerostation, by inventing a ma- chine for flying.— It seems he tried his project at Paris, which did not succeed, as he could not raise himself to any considerable height; but although he failed in this attempt, it did not discourage him, for we find he made a second experiment, by sending off a Criminal in his machine from the top of the church of Notre Dame at Paris. The criminal who had been con- demned for a robbery, was informed he should be pardoned, if he would venture himself in it; he con- sented ; the day was fixed, and the event proving successful, he was liberated. Spurred on by this little advantage, Mr. Blanchard again exerted his abilities, and soon after, during the late war, formed a flying boat, which he intended for carrying the dispatches from Brest to Paris, but as this did not answer his expectations, he was obliged to give up his design, and relinguish the idea of elevating himself above the clouds. Not long after this, the invention of aero- station arose, and Mr. Blanchard could not let pass so favourable an opportunity for his former pursuits; and when Messrs. Charles and Roberts ascended from the Tuilleries, he formed a balloon with wings or oars of his own invention ; and on the second of last March, arose to the altitude of 1500 fathoms, steering his courfe amidst the solitary paths of air, an height that no mortal ever before attained, in his boat, from the Camp de Mars, near Paris, amidst an incredible num- ber of people. An accident happened which had like to have proved fatal to this expedition : a young gen- tleman of consequence, of the Ecloe Royal Military at Paris, insisted on ascending with Mr. Blanchard, and on his refusal, drew his sword, and cut the bal- loon in several places, but it was soon mended, and the gentleman taken into custody. The success of this expedition answered his wishes, and being deter- mined to go onward in his career, he again ascended in the month of May, at Rouen, in hopes that he should be able to find a method to direct the balloon at will; this likewise proving satisfactory, he resolved on a third in July, the result of which, with the whole account of his journey, observations, & c, we refer to a former paper. On the 20th of July, on his arrival at Rouen, from the third voyage, he was crowned at the public theatre. POLITICAL REMARKS, Whoever takes upon him to rule a country, free as England is, muft part with his own liberty. While he holds out liberty to the meanest in the kingdom, he gives that meanest a scourge for his own back. Some men serve one master, some two or three masters; but a Minister is the servant of the, State. All the statesmen since the time of Lord Bacon, appear to have adopted his maxim, that the rise to the pinacle of promotion, is by a winding pair of stairs; and if factions prevail, ' twere good to stick to one party, whilst a man is climbing to honour; and to reduce himself to a balance, when he has attained the same." Quere— Is not this a defence, or apology, for poli- tical apostacy ? And at the same time does it not speak a kind of necessity for changing certain principles, ac- cording to situation ? The multis utile bellum of Lucan, is a bad sign of a state. Desperate remedies indicate a suspicion of des- perate diseases. Slight ills, are cured by lenitives ; but our constitutional complaints require every now and then the strongest corrosives; and even then, part of the morbid matter remains, and in a short time breaks out afresh. When we reflect upon the many calamities which have afflicted this little island, and the fortitude and patience with which they have been borne; when we reflect upon the asperitics which have, by a certain fa- tality, made Shakespeare's words too true, in the case of our excellent Monarch, " Uneasy lies the head that wears a Crown-,"' May we not— will not every good man say, " Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces?" The following, concerning the African negroes, may be deemed curious by our philosophical readers. " It is not a question with some naturalists but that many of the negroes imported from Africa partake of the brute creation ; not long since a cargo of them arrived in Jamaica, whose hands had little or no ball to their thumbs, whose nails were more of the claw kind than otherwise, and their want of intellectual facul- ties was very apparent. Every planter knows that there are negroes, who will for ever remain almost as much: uninformed as when they were first bought ; that they cannot be humanized as others are ; that they will remain, with respect to their understanding, but a few degrees removed from the oran outang ; and from which many negroes may be supposed, without any very improbable conjecture, to be the offspring. It is an undoubted fact, that those brutes will have in- tercourse with the human specie, that they, and the whole baboon- tribe, have the strongest propensity for them; even the monkeys shew the violence of their inclinations at their appearance. May it not then be fairly conjectured, that the female negroes who live wandering in the wilds of Africa, are, there, frequent- ly surprised and deflowered by the oran- outang, or other such brutes; that from thence they become re- conciled, as women more civilized have been, to similar attacks, and continued to cohabit with them. If this be granted, the Colonists of the West Indies are instrumental in humanizing the desendants of the offspring of even brutes ( for a generation or two will change their nature, as much as the negro is changed to a mulatto, mustee, or quadroon, by the intercourse of the whites and blacks) to the honour of the human species, and to the glory of the Divine Being." A few quotations in support of my argument I trust will not be unacceptable to the intelligent reader : " Their bestial or foetid smell, which they all have, in a greater or less degree : the Congos, Aradas, and Angolas, particularly the latter, who are likewise the most stupid of the negroe race, are the mod offensive. This scent in some of them it so excessive strong, espe- cially when their bodies are warmed by exercise or anger, that it continues in places where they have been near a quarter of an hour. In general, they are void of genius, and seem almost incapable of making any progress in civility and science. Their barbarity to their children debases their nature even below that of brutes. They have no moral sensation ; no taste but for women, gormandizing, and drinking to excess ; no wish but to be idle. Their children from their tender years, are suffered to deliver themselves up to all - that nature, or passion, suggests to them. They are represented by all authors as the vilest of the hu- mankind, to which they have little more pretension of resemblance than what arises from their exterior form. Their brutality some what diminishes, when they are imported young, after they become habitu- ated to clothing and a regular discipline of life ; but many are never reclaimed, and continue savages, in every sense of the word to the latesst period. The oran- outang, or wild- man, has some trivial resemblance to the ape, but the strongest Simili- tude to mankind, in countenance, figure, stature, organs, erect posture, actions or movements, food, temper, and manner of living. He has no pouch, tail, or callosity, on his hind parts ; these parts and the calves of his legs are plump and fleshy, differring entirely from the ape and monkey. All his teeth are the same as the human ; his face is broad, naked, and tawney ; his ears, hands, feet, head, and belly, arc likewise without hair, and of the same tawney complexion; the hair or wool of his head is like the human spccies ; he grows from five to fix feet. " The nose is flat as the nose of a negroe, the breast of the females furnished with two paps, and they are subject to the periodical flux. The latter character- istic is equally common to the monkey class. LE COMPTE, in his Memoirs of China, asserts, that " in the Straits of Malacca, he saw some that walked erect, and had faces like those of the Hotten- tots of the Cape of Good Hope. They made a noise like a young child, their passions appeared with a lively expression in their countenances; they seemed to be of a tender disposition, and would kiss and em- brace those they were fond of." Mr. NoEL speaks of apes, which he saw in Guinea, and calls " Barris, who walked erect, and had more gravity, and appearance of understanding, than any other of the ape- kind, and were passionately fond of It is also averred, " that they endeavour to Surprize and carry off negroe women into their woody retreats, in order to enjoy them." LE BrOSSE says, he knew a negroe women at Loungeo in Guinea, who had resided three years with them ; he asserts, that they grow to the height of six and Seven feet, have vast muscular Strength, and de- fended themselves with Sticks. " The Indians associate him with the human race, under the appellation of Oran- outang, or Wild- Man. He is a creature sui generis', he fills up the Space be- tween mankind and the ape, as this and the monkey- tribe Supply the interval that is between the Oran- out- ang and quadrupeds. Mr. GROSE reports, that they resemble mankind in all their actions; a male and female he had, co- vered with their hands those parts which modesty for- bids to expose, if gazed at. GAUT Says, that a female he Saw at Java resem- bled strongly Some Hottentot women he had seen; her Stature was very large. FRANCIS PYRARD reports, he found the Barris in the province of Sierra Leon in Guinea; that if pro- perly instructed when young, they become very good Servants. " They live in woods ( as almost all Africa on the coast of Guinea is uncultivated) the negroes and In- dians believe them to be wild men. They conceive strong passion for the negroe women, coveting their embraces ; they have a conformity in the Sexual distinctions with the human Specics, all their females Suckle their young. What are the Hottentots ? They are, Say the most credible writers, a people certainly very stupid and very brutal: In many respects they are more like beasts than men; their complexion is dark, they are short and thickset; their noses flat, their lips very thick and big, their teeth exceedingly white, but very long and ill- Set; their hair black and curled like wool; they are very nimble, and run with a speed that is almost incredible. They are, taking all things together, one of the meanest nations on the face of the earth." " Has the Hottentot ( whom we allow human) from this portrait a more manly figure than the oran- outang — That the oran- outang and some races of blackmen are nearly allied, is, I think, more than probable. The Sole distinction between them and man consists in the measure of intellectual faculties, in these they do not seem at all inferior to many of the negroe race; with Some of them it is credible that they have the most intimate connexion and consangu- inity. The amorous intercourse between them, pro. bablv, is much more frequent than is known, the ne- groes themselves bear testimony that such actually happens, and it is certain that both races agree per- fectly well in lasciviousness of disposition. As it is with the Indians of America and of Cali fornia, So is it with the negroes of Africa, and with the Savages of all climates. Man in the state of na- ture his nothing more than animal instinct to direct him : ideas are created by the polish which education ( the social intercourse of man with man) gives to hu- man nature; endowed with the faculty of Speech, pro- vided with hands, he would, nevertheless, not have an idea of the proper life of either, if, from his infan- cy, he dwelt amongst brutes only. Are these beings, when under the controul of their masters in the West- Indies, in such a miserable Situation as in the state of nature ? Are the old and decrepid deserted and Suffered to perish for want? No.— The humane feel- ings of man in his civilized state forbids it, These poor creatures have, at least, as much attention paid to their wants by their masters, as the impotent poor, in most parishes in England have by the generality of the church- wardens, and probably, such poor fare better in England than in most parts of Europe, although not altogether So well as those in the West Indies. The proper materials for a monument in honour of Mr. Russel, are marble or, brass, as either may give a proper idea of the heart of the deceased. The inscription and figures may be in wood to de- note that the head of the gentleman corresponded with his other parts If there be any poverty of invention in the author of the Epitaph or Inscription of the monument, it may be proper to look into the chapter of Roderick Random, were Bowling brings young Rory to look into the grand father's will, and finding no mention made of his poor relations, bursts out in a loud " whew, Somebody's soul howls for it, D— me." A correspondent thinks it is very lucky the Edin- burgh balloon failed of success, for had it answered expeditions, England would Soon have been invaded in a most formidable manner— Apropos, might it not be prudent in Mr. Lunardi to take a trip to Edin- burgh or Dublin, York, & c. and profit by curiosity which has not yet been gratified? The daily accounts we receive from America of thousands of emigrants arriving there from Scotland and Ireland, must alarm every man who has the least regard for this countiy. If Government does not Speedily interpose, and put a stop to this pernicious practice, those kingdoms will soon be reduced to mere deserts. It is usually Said, that people cannot be detained in a country by force ; that were there are more inhabitants than can find Subsistance, the overplus is only a dead weight, and that permitting them to depart is not only an act of humanity to them, but a relief and even benefit to the Public. But this reasoning, however Specious, is Sophistical. The point to be examined is, whether these emigrants really are so destitute as it pretended whether they are not rather decoyed by the insidious arts of Cap- tains of Ships and others to leave their country on the prospect of speedily accumulating riches; instead of which they are immediately reduced to a state of the most wretched Slavery, their service lost to their country, and themselves made miserable for life. A very slight enquiry would diScover to which of these causes this depopulation is owing. If real necessity forces those unfortunate people to leave their homes, ' no stone ought to be left unturned to procure them a means of subsistence; if oppression drives them from their native land, let redress be immediately afforded; if they are deluded by the fraud and villainy of kidnappers, let these be made Severe examples of, and at the Same time a law be enacted Subjecting those who shiall be found wantonly endeavouring to aban- don their country to certain penalties. Above all, let it be made felony in any Captain to indent peo- ple, as is now the practice, and let no ship be Suffered to leave any port until it be carefully examined whe- ther there be any such passengers on board. M. I'Abbe de Crillon received from Madrid on the 8th instant a print of an amphibious animal found among the Mountains of Chili. The length of this carnivorous creature from head to tail is eleven feet; his body is covered with large scales ; his physiog- nomy reSembles what daubing painters draw for the face of the moon ; at the end of his chin depends a long thick beard ; his forehead is broad, and armed with horns like those of an ox ; his ears are like those of an ass ; his breast, as well as the features of his countenance, have Some resemblance to a man's; on his back are two fins or wings for enabling him to swim or fly; his jaws are of an enormous size, Set with teeth six inches long; his rump terminates in two tails, with one of which he seizes his prey, and with the other, he defends himself when attacked, it being armed with a short kind of dart, which he points in a threatening manner when provoked, uttering a horrible bellowing. This creature is the male ; the female that was taken having escaped, still continues a terror to the inhabitants of Chili ; his food is nearly a whole sheep each day. This non- descript animal was brought to Madrid on the 25th of September} and to gratify the curious, it is Said he will be con- voyed to Paris towards the end of the winter. Although the public were inclined to indulge the laugh against the Spaniards, On account of their late failure when attempting to take Algiers, that failure is nevertheless in some degree to be regretted, as their design was to root out a nest of the most savage pirates that ever disgraced humanity; and we cannot but hope, that this great purpose may on some future, and that not very distant occasion, be accomplished. The Hay- market Theatre was crowded on Wed. nesday evening to see the deceptions of Mr. Pinetti. It was really entertaining to observe the avidity of the people to be deceived— It was considered as an ungracions office in those who endeavoured to open the eyes of their neighbours, and several who laughed at ths weak credulity of the rest were severely checked. —" We came here to be deceived, and it is unkind in you," says a lady to a gentleman who sat in the same box, " to rob me of my pleasure. If you are too wise or too gloomy to be entertained with juggling, why did you come here? There are rational amusements for your very sagacious people ; and we beg you will suffer us to remain the delighted dupes of our own Senses." This rebuke, or something like it, was pretty general at first, and John Bull enjoyed the tricks with no other abatement of his pleasure, save the tedi- ousness with which they were performed. But when Signor Pinetti failed in some of his measures— when he commanded a box to open, and it was too sulky to obey him— when he repeatedly shot his pistol, and no card appeared to stick against the wall, and when at last, provoked at the dullness of his confederate behind the Screen, flew up in a rage and discovered the arti- fice—- John Bull began to grumble, and expressed his disappointment in loud and continued hisses. The multitude was assembled chiefly by the promise that a man's Shirt fhould be taken off, " without any other- wise undressing him, or causing the least immodesty." It seemed as if this had been given out for the purpose of trying the full extent of our Englishman's patience. A fellow was got, who was ready to assist in the expe- riment; and by command of the conjurer he stripped his coat and waistcoat, and put on a loose great coat. Mr. Pinetti then threw a large black cloth over his body, and in this manner he Stood, while the juggler pulled his shirt over his head, thrusting the body of it at the same time into the inside of the great coat — He then drew out one arm, and then, as it may be ima- gined, was able with perfect ease to strip the whole through the other sleeve of the coat. So palpable a humbug was too much for the patience of fifteen hun- dred people; nor indeed could they reconcile to themselves the grossness of the matter. The beautiful Lady Spencer and other noble and delicate ladies were present; and though these absurdities were practising, it was still a Theatre Royal, dedicated to the exhibi- tion of the English drama. The house burst into an uproar of dissatisfaction, and if this piece of bottle conjuration had not concluded the night's performance, the audience would in all probability have peeped be- hind the curtain, and given themselves more insight into the matter than they in the beginning seemed willing to accept. The juggler, though he did not understand English, seemed perfectly sensible that he was wrong, and he made many Scrapes and bows, and assured them that he would in future perform more wonderful tricks ; which means, we suppofe, that if John Bull will be patient, he will, instead of his shirt, strip him of his skin.
