To the KING'S Most Excellent Majesty, WE, your Majesty's most loyal and most affec- tionate subjects, the Delegates from the Burgesses of the Royal Boroughs in Scotland, associated to endeavour, by the most constitutional means, to ob- tain a reform in the internal government of these Boroughs, feel ourselves impelled to embrace this the earliest opportunity which our situation has af- forded us of approaching your royal person, with sentiments of the truest and most unfeigned con- gratulation on account of your Majesty's happy re- covery from your late alarming indisposition. We felt, in common with the rest of your Maje- sty's subjects, that deep distress with which your Majesty's indisposition had affected the nation at large, and therefore we could nOt but sinCerely re- joice in an event which restored the energy of Go- vernment, and with it the public happiness and tran- quillity. In the midst of that national affliction which your Majesty's illness naturally produced, your subjects received consolation when they beheld in your eldest son, the Heir of your Crown, and of your Illustrious House, a Prince distinguished by virtues end talents which rendered him the fit re- presentative of your royal person, in exercising the functions of Government; and it is our earnest wish that there may never be wanting Princes of the August House of BrunSwick to sway the British sceptre, and to continue for ever, as they have hi- therto done, the illustrious guardians and protectors of national felicity and public liberty. That your Majesty may long reign in health and happiness over the freed and the happiest people in the world, is our most earnest prayer. Signed in our presence, and by our appointment, by R. Graham, President. John Ewen, Secretary. Edin. Aug. 19. 1789. / Vienna, Aug. 19. The Emperor, after three weeks of apparent re- covery, has been again indispofed.

The National Assembly still continue their deli- berations 0n the rights of man, the freedom of the press, religion, & c. in which they have made some little progress. A pamphlet on the commitments to the Bastile was announced to the Assembly as a publication that ought to be noticed ; but on the motion of M. de Mirabeau, it was not deemed worthy attention. In demolishing the Bastile se- veral cannon balls have been found, supposed to have been fired into it by the Prince de Conde, at the time of the civil wars in the minority of Louis XIV. These were presented by the engineers to M. de la Fayette, accompanied with a short and appropriated address by M. Jallier, a patriotic architect— The present ( said he) now offer con- sists, not in gold, but in iron.— Balls found in the ruins of the den of despotism— the dungeons of sor- row and slavery. Tuesday last being the anniversary of St Louis, which is kept as the King's birth- day, his Majesty, on this occasion, was complimented by a deputa- tion of sixty members from the National Assembly. The King received them in his closet , and it is remarkable that the only prince of the blood pre- sent at the procession was the Duke of Orleans, who with the Duchess of Orleans, his sister the Duchess of Bourbon, and some other branches of the family, formed the principal part of the court on that day. The form of the new loan is to be changed, and the interest, it is said, to be raised to six per cent. The occasion of the miscarriage of the former is at- tributed by the bankers to the National Assembly's taking it out of the hands of M. Necker, where they are confident it would have filled in three or four days. Thus the report of the city of Nantes having requested that they might be permitted to fill the whole, turns out to be mere rhodomontade. Lyons, however, it is still said, offers to furnish four millions, and Marseilles two. At this latter place, while good order and tran- quillity are restored to the capital, some tumultous people attempted to raise the populace, but by the activity of the military, seconded by the better order of the citizens, about thirty of the insurgents were taken, and peace soon restored. At Stras- bourg, and some other frontier places, all is not yet perfectly quiet, whence it is feared that, should any foreign power offer its aid, affairs might yet be thrown into a terrible situation. The Duke d'Artois is arrived at Turin, where his family are gone to join him. Several hogs- heads of money for the same destination, have been seized at Paris, and detained by order of the Na- tional Assembly. M. Necker was not well, when the last advices came. It is said that grief preys upon his mind, on finding himself thwarted by party, in his en- deavours for the public good. NATioNAL ASSEMBLy. FREEDOM OF THE PRESS, In detail, has been discussed— but with no new light upon the subject; with nothing either of sentiment or expression, but what every Englishman knows already, or may know much better— from Blackstone's Commentaries— the Reports of our Courts— or the common conversation of our tables. The only reputable speakers, were M. l'Eveque de Dijon, and M. Le Due de Rochefoucault. The deliberation ended as it " began, with this leading obvious principle : ' That freedom, of opinion is among the natural and indefeasible rights of men— that the expression of his opinions, whether he speaks, writes, or pu- blishes, must be also free— and when that freedom is abused, then alone he is to feel any operation of the law. Authentic Copy of the Declaration of the Rights of the Man and Citizen, as agreed to by the National Assembly of France, with the Preamble. PREAMBLE. tHe Representatives of the French people, con- stituted in National Assembly, considering that ig- norance, forgetfulness, or contempt of the rights of man, are the sole causes of public misfortunes, and of the corruption of governments, have resol- ved to set forth, in a solemn declaration, the natu- ral, unalienable, and sacred rights of man, to the end that this declaration, being constantly present to all the members of the social body, may perpe- tually remind them of their rights and duties ; that the acts of the legislative and of the executive power, being at every instant liable to be compared with the object of every political institution, may be the more respected by them ; and that the claims of the citizens founded henceforward on simple and incontestable principles, may uniformly turn to the maintenance of the constitution and to the happiness of all. In consequence, the National Assembly acknow- ledge and declare, in presence of, and under the auspices of the Supreme Legislator, the following Rights of the Man and Citizen. Art. I.—- All men are born, and remain free, and equal in rights; social distinctions can only be founded on common utility. Art. II.— The end of every political association is the preservation of the natural and imprescriptible rights of men ; these rights are liberty, property, security, and resistance to oppression. Art. III.— The principle of all sovereignty re- sides essentially in the nation ; no body of men, n0 individual can exercise any authority, but what e- manates expressly from it. Art. IV.— Liberty consists in doing whatever does not injure another; accordingly, the exercise of the natural rights of each man has no other bounds but those which secure to other members of society the enjoyment of the same rights, these li- mits can be determined only by the law. Art. V.— The law should only prohibit actions injurious to society. Nothing can be prevented but what is prohibited by law ; nor can any man be constrained to do what it does not ordain. Art. VI.— The law is the expression of the ge- neral will ; all the citizens have the right of con- curring personally, or by their representatives, in its formation ; it ought to be the same for all, whether it protects or whether it punishes. All the citizens being equal in its eye, are equally ad- missible to all places, employments, and dignities, according to their capacity ; and without any other distinction than that of their virtues and their talents. Art. VII.— No man can be accused, apprehend- ed, or detained, but in cases determined by the law, and according to the forms which it has pre- scribed. They who solicit, expedite, execute, or cause to be expedited, any arbitrary orders, should be punished ; but every citizen, summoned or ap- prehended by virtue of the law, should instantly obey, and he becomes culpable by resistance. Art. VIII The law should establish none but punishments strictly and evidently necessary; and n0 man can be punished but by virtue of a law esta- blished and promulgated prior to the offence, and legally applied. Art. IX.— Every man being presumed inno- cent, until he shall have been pronounced guilty, if it be deemed indispensable to apprehend him, e- very species of rigour, not absolutely necessary for securing his person, should be severely prohibited by the law. Art. X.— No man can be disturbed in his opi- nions, even religious, provided their manifestation do not trouble the public order established by the law. Art. XI.— The free communication of thoughts and opinions is one of the most precious rights of man Every citizen, therefore, may freely speak, write, and print, under condition of being respon- sible for the abuse of that liberty in cases provided for by the law. Art. XII.— The security of the rights of the man and citizen renders a public force necessary ; that force then is instituted for the good of all, and not for the particular advantage of those to whom it is confided. Art. XIII.— For the maintenance of this pu- blic force, and the other expences of administration, a common contribution is indispensable ; this should be equally apportioned among all the citizens, in proportion to their abilities. Art. XIV.— Each citizen has the right, by him- self, or his representative, to determine the neces- sity of the public contribution, freely to consent to it; to attend to its employment, and to fix the quota, the mode of imposition, the collection and duration of the same. Art. XV.— Society has a right to demand an account from every public agent of his admini- stration. Art XVI.— Every society in which the guaran- ty of their rights is not secured, nor the separation of powers determined, is without a constitution. The National Assembly. having established nine articles of the declaration of the rights of the man and citizen on Saturday, a motion was made to adjourn to Monday ; but a powerful party, head- ed by the clergy, insisted on the Assembly meeting on the next day, Sunday, to take into considration the next article relative to religion ; and it is re- markable enough, that this should have been the eve of the massacre of St Bartholomew. A very long and warm debate ensued. It was at last agreed that the article should stand thus : " No man can be troubled for his religious opinions, nor can any man be troubled in his reli- gious worship." The General Assembly of France, in first debat- ing on the rights of man, as a free subject ( if free subject be not a contradiction in terms), certainly have begun at the right place. It would, however, have been more agreeable to Louis the Sixteenth— and to all Kings— had they begun with considering the power of the King. Their process, however, is perfectly constitutional, and proves that all power must be derived from the people. . An account has just been received, that the sister of the Duke of Orleans was met on her way from Paris, so early as her third stage, and stopped by a party wearing the national cockade, who in- formed her that her brother was in favour of a general amnesty, and therefore she must prepare to die ! No more than seventeen minutes were allowed her ; at the expiration of which she was hanged, from the window of her apartment, before some thousand spectators, and the lady was conveyed upon the open Skeleton of her carriage back to Paris. The fact and undeserved catastrophe of this unhappy lady is the subject of general regret; as is the unbounded violence and barbarity of the mob, which, during the present panic, there is neither force nor authority to controul. BURGUNDY. The inhabitants have now been for six weeks past under arms night and day, for fear of the attacks of the rabble;— a very heavy misfortune on the poor artizans, at this time of public distress for subsist- ence. Forty- four Noblemen's seats have been de- stroyed in this province alone. The account is not exaggerated when we say, that near a thousand persons were murdered in the course of three days, near Chalons on the Soane. The ringleader of the villains was put to the torture— he was a country attorney. This man had a private printing press, which he carried about with him. One of the papers he issued from the press is as follows : " By Royal Authority It is permitted, for three months, to burn all the chateaux, mansions, abbeys, and other houses, having weather- cocks; and to hang up all those who Shall offer any opposition " STATE PAPER. In COUNCIL of the NOBLE CITY OF LIEGE, held specially the 20th August 1789. In consequence of the reintegration of all citi- zens in their rights and prerogatives, which they enjoyed before the regulation of 1684, and also in consequence of the new order of affairs to be esta- blished, it appears that the places, in the chambers, formed by the BiShop to represent the Generality, are to be suppressed. The Council therefore will communicate to the citizens in print the plan of their new Municipal Order, with a desire that they may thoroughly in- spect it, to the end, that what is to produce wel- fare to all, may be truly the result of the general will. The Council declares, that its principle being to respect the property of every individual what- er, the reimbursement of those places, acquired on good faith, will be secured to all those who pos- sess them ; the citizens are requited to reflect on the multitude of affairs which are rapidly succeed- ing each other since the first day of our happy Re- volution, and which keep the Council continually employed night and day in assuring the felicity of the people who have honoured them with their con- fidence ; and being impressed to give momentarily an account of their operations, and of all that is done for the people, that it may be known to and approved by them, they order that the present or- dinance be printed, affixed up, and distributed to the public. By Order of the said Council, ROUVEROY, pro de COLOGNE. Royal TOUR. Weymouth, Sunday, August 30. The Royal Family attended divine service this forenoon at the parish church here; the morning being wet and dirty, they went in their carriages. After church, they took a few minutes walk upon the Esplanade, the weather not permitting them to continue out long. In the evening, the King, Queen, and Princesses, with, a whole retinue of Nobility, went to Stacie's Long Room, where they lounged till near eleven, when they retired to Glou- cester House. The Duke of Richmond, who arrived here a day or two ago from Plymouth, in his yacht, got under weigh this afternoon, with a fair wind, for Ports- mouth: In going out of the bay, he saluted his Majesty with 21 guns; and when he had got a- breast of the Magnificent, he lowered his top- sail, and struck up " God save the King!" for which polite and handsome mark of behaviour, the officer then commanding ordered the shrouds to be man- ned, and gave his Grace three cheers, which he re- turned very graciously, and appeared highly pleased with the attention the Magnificent shewed him. Monday Morning. The weather continues to look bad, so that their Majesties can scarcely be expected afloat, unless a; sudden change takes place. The King is in perfect health : The swelling of his Majesty's ancle was occafioned by a fall at Sal- tram ; he is however recovered of it, so as to walk apparently as well as ever. It is extremely doubtful whether the Marquis of Buckingham will return to Ireland. It is be- lieved he will not, but that he will replace the Duke of Dorset as Ambassador to France. In this case the Marquis of SaliSbury will go as Viceroy to Ireland, and the Duke of Dorset suc- ceed the Marquis as Lord Chamberlain of the House- hold. The Marquis of Buckingham has neither visited the King nor Mr Pitt since his return from Ire- land. Mr Mortlock, the late Member for Cambridge, is appointed a CommiSsioner of the Tax office, ( and not of the Stamp office, as some papers have erroneously mentioned) in the room of the late Mr Heathcote, deceased. Robert Nicholas, Esq. Member for Cricklade, is to be appointed a Commissioner of the Excise, in the room of William Burrell, Esq. who retires. Buller, Esq. to be appointed Commissioner of the Customs, in the room of Edward Hooper, Esq. who retires. And Colonel Farnaby to be a Commissioner of the Salt office. His Royal Highness the Duke of Clarence spends the winter in England; but is expected to go to sea again in the spring— probably to the East In- dies, as his Royal Highness has expressed a desire to visit that part of the globe. The Prince Royal of Denmark, and the Prince of Hesse, returned to Copenhagen from surveying the garrisons in the duchy of Holstein the 16th of last month. According to letters from Constantinople, re- ceived in town this day, the Divan had been assem- bled five days on the question—" Whether it is expedient to continue the war, or listen to the pro- posed terms of peace from the Imperial Courts?'' There is no news of either the Russian or Swe- dish fleets by the mails, but a confirmation, that the former run from the latter, which only went into Carlscrone to land their sick. The garrison of Bender have carried in 900 Rus- sian horses they found grazing within the limits of their patroles. . A revolt has taken place in the Russian province of Kiowie, where the inhabitants are driven to the greatest misery, owing to the repeated levies of men and money for the war. Three regiments have been sent thither, who have arrested some of the leaders, and forced the unarmed to be peaceable. The French, if justly accused of levity, are not the only people on earth who deserve that censure. The destruction of the Bastile, performed in London in no less than three pantomimes, is n0 great proof, that great revolutions are serious things even in this country. . V EAST INDIA INTELLIGENCe. The Airley Castle, Stewart, from Bencoolen Is arrived off the Isle of Wight; she sailed from Ben- coolen the 18th of April, arived at St Helena the 26th of June, and failed from that island on her voyage to England the 7th of July last : The Con- tractor, which sailed from China, in company with the Bridgevater, Raymond, & c. had not then ar- rived at St Helena. The Lord Macartney sailed from Bencoolen on her voyage to Bombay the 12th of April. The following passengers are arrived in the- Air- ley Castle : From Fort St George. Lieutenant Colonel Eddington, Mrs Eddington, Mr James Eddington, Captains Blunden and Becket, Lieutenant Brodie, of the King's troops, and Sheriff of the Company's cavalry. From Bencoolen. George Salmon, Esq. late Governor, Mr Robert Pearse. From St Helena. Miss Wynne. Thomas Palmer, Esq. a member of the Council at Fort Marlborough, died in October last. The Airley Castle is the last ship expected to ar- rive from Bencoolen this season ; her cargo chiefly consists of pepper and gold dust. The Bridgewater, from China, is also arrived. The purser of the Duke of Montrose, from Chi- na, Captain John Dorin, came to the East India House yesterday with the news of the safe arrival of that ship off the Start. She is the last ship but one ( the Contractor) which is expected from Chi- na this season. DUEL near PONDICHERRY. Mr Wooley and Dr Ruddiman, both of Fort St George, met lately in the environs of Pondi- cherry to decide an affair of honour. They fired by agreement together. The first ball of Mr Wooley struck Dr Ruddiman in the side, but was resisted by the rib, and fell to the ground with no other effect than a considerable con- tusion. They continued to fire till the fourth shot of each took place. Dr R. was wounded in the leg, and Mr W. in the head.— Both fell, and the affair was terminated. We are happy to add, that the rencontre did not prove fatal to either party. What France did for England in 1688, England now does' for France, affords an asylum for the friends of the deposed Monarch ; with only this difference : France cherished the adherents of the exiled James, as martyrs to a glorious cause. Eng- land can look on the fugitive French with compassion, but more the tools of tyranny do not deserve. In the report made by M. Bargasse to the Na- tional Assembly, of the plan for the institution of the judicial power of France, it is proposed, that all torture shall be abolished ; and that simple death, by hanging, shall be the severest punishment to be inflicted by law. The punishment of death to be inflicted only in the cases of murder and treason. Confiscation of property, on conviction of felony, to be abolished. if any person shall complain of loss by the condemned felon, he shall, upon proof, have compensation made him, either from the goods of the convict, or from the province. All the code of criminal laws to be revised, and punish- ments in every case to be accurately proportioned to the offence. Some of the papers have insinuated that Spain will probably follow the example of France. But although Spain is a more perfectly absolute mo narchy than France, yet the last Sovereign ( and the present follows his steps) always directed his attention so much to the happiness and welfare of his subjects, or, as Shakspeare says, " bore his faculties so meekly," that perhaps there is no coun- try on earth under a despotic government that feels the horrors of despotism less. The inquisition is a mere bugbear ; and in no case can now commence a criminal process without laying the particulars of it before the King and Council. It is now so much the fashion for people of fortune to introduce their boys, fresh from school, into par- liament, that at the next general election the num- bers are expected to stand thus: Members in all - 558 Members with beards — 109 Without beards — 290 With Wigs — 59 Total • 558 At a late review in the Phoenix Park, Dublin, the horse of a Lieutenant Colonel received a ball in his shoulder, which entered and lodged in his body. The poor beast, on receiving the shot stag- gered, but did not drop. The ball seemed an in- tentional one, but it happened that the officer, the owner of the wounded horse, was luckily not mounted, though standing very near at the time of the accident. A soldier in the ranks, at this review, was observed not to level his firelock in the usual direction, but obliquely; which gave such strong suspicion, especially as he was nearly in a line with the officer's horse, as to warrant his ap- prehension. He was accordingly sent to, and con- fined in the barrack prison, in . order to be tried by a Court- martial ; but contrived to make his escape, and though every pursuit was instantaneously made, he has not been retaken. The horse died 0n Satur- day last, and is said to have cost the Lieutenant Colonel upwards of 50I. Among the collection of fplendid furniture, be- longing to a bankrupt lottery office keeper, sold last week by auction, was a mahogany house, orna- mented with fluted pillars, and on castors, which belonged to the lady's favourite lap- dog. This mansion, which must have originally cost 12 or 14 guineas, sold only for one guinea and a half; but the furniture, which consisted of a bed, matress, and .. muslin curtains, the auctioneer had the delicacy to keep back from the hammer, through the fear of impressing too strongly the marks of modern vanity and dissipation. PARISIAN MODES. The first and second ladies dresses describe the half mourning, if any thing so fantastic can proper- ly be called so, now worn by females at Paris. They are given only to the waist. Although colours are adopted, it is necessary that each article of the dress should be plain and simple, and that a distinguishing mark of mourning should be added, even if it consist in a ribbon only. THE FIRST DRESS Consists of a robe of apple- green taffety, and a hat a soufflet, edged with a black ribbon, and bound round the middle by another black' ribbon, form- ing a rosette before, and a knot behind ; the crown is very high and full, and of plain white gauze. The hair in front is in large curls, three of which fall a little upon the forehead ; behind, it is relieved in a floating chignon. On the neck is a very large kerchief of plain white gauze, the ends of which are tied behind the waist. THE SECOND DRESS Consists of a robe of crimson taffety ( which co- lour is likewise much worn by ladies out of mourn- ing)- On the head is a plain hat of white taffety, trim- med with rose ribbons, a black rosette in front, and a large knot of black ribbon behind. In the front is also an aigrette of round plumes, of rose- colour, except the tops, which are black. The hair, in front, is one half in large detached curls, the other frizzed. Behind, it falls loose. The neck kerchief, is of a plain white gauze, very open before ; the ends are fastened under the robe. THE THIRD HALF MOURNING LADIES DRESS Consists of a caraco and petticoat of grey taffety. The caraco is edged with a long crimson fringe, and beneath it is a stomacher of crimson taffety. The neck- kerchief is of plain gauze, very full; the ends are knotted behind the waist. The gloves, which reach to the elbows, are of white leather ; the shoes of crimson taffety, with white rosettes. The hair in front is frizzed, and four large curls, in two rows, fall at each side of the bosom ; be- hind, it is in six plaits. The bonnet is very small, and of black gauze. Round it is a large stripe of black taffety, with double papillons of black gauze in small plaits. The crown, which is almost covered by the stripe of black taffety, is of gauze plaited at top. In the front, is a large plain white feather. On Friday last, Lieutenant Elford, of the 73d regiment,, was unfortunately drowned, while ba- thing, near Guildford, in Surry. BIRTH.

" On Friday the Prince of Wales did Mr Jolliffe the honour of taking a breakfast with him, at his seat at Nunmonckton. " The Prince of Wales left this city on Satur- day evening, to pay a visit to the Earl of Carlisle at Castle Howard, from whence he returned hither on Monday, and soon afterwards set off, as did the Duke of York, who is happily recovered from an indisposition that had confined him to his room from Tuesday till Sunday. The Prince proceeded to Wentworth House, to be present on Wednesday at the sumptuous entertainment given by Lord Fitzwilliam. The Duke of York went forward for the South. " The Prince of Wales and his suite passed through the back part of Pontefract on Monday night, about nine o'clock ; before he turned off to leave the place, the populace would have taken the horses from the carriage, and drawn his Royal Highness through the town, but he would not suf- fer it, and ordered the men to drive the back way, to the great disappointment of the inhabitants. " His Royal Highness the Duke of York ar- rived at Doncaster on Monday evening, without being much fatigued. He had a good night, and on Tuesday morning set forward for London, per- fectly recovered from his late illness." Lately was married, at Longtown, Thomas Bar- stow, Esq. of Leeds, to Miss Mitchelson, daughter of the late Mr Samuel Mitchelson, clerk to the signet. Upon the 21st of last month, at Talisker, in Sky, was married the Rev. Mr Murdoch M'Iver of Grinnard, minster of the gospel at Lochalsh, to Miss Sybilla Fraser, youngest daughter of the late Mr William Fraser, of Boughton, Town Clerk of Inverness. On the 24th of June last died, near the Island of St Helena, on his passage from the East Indies, Mr John Simson, youngest son of the deceased George Simson, Esq. of Inverighty. On Thursday died Mrs Elizabeth Duncan, spouse to Mr George Younger, merchant, Glas- gow. Last night two gentlemen, with their seconds, in consequence of a challenge, met near St An- thony's Chapel, King's Park: But previous in- formation having been given to the Lord Provost, Mr Williamson, with proper assistance, was sent to secure them, which he accordingly did ; and, after being examined by his Lordship, were all commit- ted to prison. They had five pistols in their pos- session, which they very readily delivered to Mr Williamson. Extract of a letter from Mullingar, Aug. 20. " At a time when the public prints teem with recitals of duels between bloods of the first rank and consequence, the relation of a point of honour settled between two gentlemen of the first weight in this county, may not prove unacceptable to your readers. " Mr C— y— n, Surveyor of Castlepollard, a gentleman of 22 stone weight, waited on Mr D— w— l, of this town, ( whose corpulency sur- passed his own by at least four stone) on some busi ness, and having never seen the gentleman before, after some converfation complimented him in his native Caledonian dialect, on his soncy appearance ; this Mr D. mistook for saucy, a word of opposite meaning, and instantly taking fire, returned the compliment in such a manner as urged the Caledo- nian to send him an invitation to the field of ho- nour on the following day. The jolly son of Saint Patrick was not to be intimidated; a meeting took place ; the concourse of spectators was proportion- ed to the greatness of the combatants; their curi- osity was however disappointed ; the humane se- conds, by explaining the word, explained away the quarrel, and these thundering sons of Mars re- tired to the temple of Bacchus to drown their ani- mosity, and try their prowess in a less dangerous encounter." His Grace the Duke of Quensberry is arrived in town ; last from York races. Monday last the University of Glasgow, after the usual private and public trials, conferred the degree of Doctor of Medicine upon Mr Joseph Healy, A. M. of Ireland. The following swindling trick deserves to be noticed— A smuggler called at the house of a vint- ner at Canon a few weeks ago, about one in the morning, with a cask of brandy which he wished to sell, he pierced the cask, and showed that it was excellent; and the vintner having occasion for it to make rasp brandy, the bargain was agreed 0n, and the money paid ( three guineas). The cask was put into the cellar till a proper opportunity should occur for making the rasp brandy— when the bar- rel being brought forth, and again pierced, it run about three gills, and immediately stopped. It was thought the stoppage was occasioned by want of air, and a hole was bored to give it vent, but to no purpose : The head of the cask was then taken out, when to their astonishment it was full of wa- ter. The ingenuity of the smuggler had contrived a white iron tube opposite to the bung hole, which contained about four gills, strongly nailed round, and neatly soldered, so as to prevent the water and the brandy from mixing.— The same man played the like trick to several people in Falkirk. Yesterday, by order of the Magistrates, a quan- tity of unmarketable lamb was seized, and sent to the Charity Workhouse. Tuesday the Magistrates sentenced one John Cameron to be banished the city and liberties for seven years, and if he shall be found within the same during that period, he shall be whipped on the platform at the west end of the tolbooth, and after- wards banished for life, under the same certification. The crime of which Cameron was convicted was keep- ing a disorderly house, and thereby creating an in- tolerable disturbance and nuisance in the neighbour- hood where he resided. The sitting Magistrate, at the same time, fined Cameron's landlord in 20I. Scots, agreeable to an ancient law of the burgh, for letting his house to a person of bad fame. This regulation the Magistrates are resolved to put in strict execution. on Monday evening as a man was going with a cart from Mellerstain to Earlstoun, the cart overturned, and he was found dead next morning with the cart lying on his neck.

The mansion- house is at present converted into an inn, and af- fords much satisfaCtion to travellers. There is also upon the lands a great deal of old and young planting, of different kinds of timber. All the arable land is in rhe natural state, and capable of great improve- ment.

TO BE LET, COUSLAND AND CRANSTON COALS, and EDGEHEAD WINDMILL. IN the Coal at Causland Mire, there are five seams, which may be taken out of the same shafts; one seam about four feet thick, another two feet thick, two others three feet thick, and the last thirty inches. The four first are within two or three fathoms of each other; but the last is seventeen feet deeper than the last of these, and is an exceeding hard coal, which will carry to any distance without breaking, and sells twenty per cent, dearer than the others. The roofs and pavements are good. The rise of the coal is one in seven, and the rise of the land about one in five. The field is above 1000 acres. The first coal will be struck at ten fathoms from the level, and the first pit will be five or six fathoms deep. The four first of these coals are level free; but the last can- not be free of water, without a steam engine to cost 3001. or carrying forward a mine about 100 fathoms beyond the coal immediately above it, at 15 s. per fathom. The colliers will lay the great and middle- sized coal for 2s. p: r ton on the ground, all expences included, except sink- ing shafts, and paying overseers, and damages to tenants for breaking ground. The selling price is 4 s. 2 d. per ton for the four first seams, and 5 s. for the li ft. And the market to Edinburgh and Leith, and for exportation from the har- bour of Fisherrow, at three miles distance, and downhill, is as great as can be desired. There is also a market for the small coal, or what is called Slack in England, and Panwood in Scotland, for the lime- works 011 the estate. The colliers get 10d. a ton, for throwing it out, and the selling price is about I s. 6 d. A very great sale may be opened for exportation of the' lime, on account of its superior quality, and the cheapness of the small coal. There is a village for the work people. The rent asked is one- sixth of the produce, when water- free, and one- tenth, if a steam- engine be used. The crops of the five coals have lately been opened, and may be seen. The dip was formerly opened. Two Seams at Cranston are to be let on the same terms. ' The Windmill at Edgehead, quite new, ar. d of great power, is also to be let. William Nasmith, overseer at Cranston coal, will show the coals at Cousland and Cranston. And John Aitken smith at Cranston will show the windmill.
