This Day was publised, a New Edition, being the Seventh* of an entire New and Interesting Work, with an eiegmt . Engraving of the Author, entitled, \ GUIDE to HEALTH : or, Advice to both Sexes in a variety of Complaints; with a Treatise on Nervous, Consumptive, Hypochondriac, and Venereal Dis- eases, ' Gleets, Seminal Weakness, and a solitary and destruc- tive habit called Onanism ; likewise an Address to Parents, Tutors, & c. By SAMUEL SOLOMON, M. D. London : Printed for the Author, and sold by Matthew.-^ No. 18, Strand ; Of Whom may be had, at half- a- guinea a bottle, the COR- DIAL BALM of GILEAD, which is a medicine possessed of extraordinary efficacy in Nervous^ Hypochondriac, and Con- sumptive ComplaintS and calculated to restore all weak and relaxed habits, whether arising from excess of grief or pleasure, indigestion, bilious or nervous afflictions in general. Doctor Solomon of Liverpool prepares this Medicine, and is a' 30 Author of the above celebrated Work ; the rapid and con- tinued sale of which is such as perhaps no medical work ever experienced, it being admirably calculated for the instruction of every individual, male or female, who find themselves greatly interested therein. It may be had of all the Printers of Newspapers and Venders of genuine established Medicines in the three kingdoms. Dr. Solomon observes that his Advertisements and Publi- cation are daily copied by those who are not able to write for themselves, with a view- of rising in tie estimation of the Public, and recommending their own Medicines, & c. in place of the Cordial Balm of Gilead and the Guide to Health. Buc many years extensive practice, and intense application, has enabled Dr. Solomon to obtain that confidence with the Pub- lic, which it is his ambition to preserve through life ; he rests his success solely on the merits of his own remedies, and pecu- liar mode of practice, and wishes by no means to deprive any Gentleman of the reward due to his merits provided he builds upon his own foundation.; hut he leaves them to discriminate between the regular practitioner and illiterate pretenders, who attempt to ascend the pinnacle of fame by climbing the tower which he has erected. Dr. Solomon may be consulted by Letter, post paid, inclosing his usual fee of Half- a- guinea, addressed to him at his house, No. 12, Marybone, Liverpool. , N. B. Those who wish to see a Pamphlet of the efficacy of this Medicine, and the Cures it has performed, may be sup-, plied gratis by the Venders.

THE ITALIAN PASTE is the most effica- cious and infallible thing in the world for the speedy and certain extirpation of those destructive animals Rats and Mice; for by its wonderful and powerful attractive quality, those Rats, & c. which are destroyed by the effects thereof are frequently eaten in the most voracious manner by the surviving animals, to obtain the composition, which, on their being opened, is found in their stomachs. They eat this Paste with astonishing avidity, preferring it to all other food, and it take's instant effeCt, after which they neithereat, drink, vomit, nor purge; consequently it is by much the safest thing hitherto discovered for said purpose. It is particularly worthy the attention of Gentlemen, Farm - ers, and all others whose Premises are infested with those ver- min, as it kills Rats of every description, the Water Rat as well as others ; and the very great and almost incredible de- mand for this Paste, proves it superior efficacy over all other Medicines used for this purpose.

Sirs, I beg leave to inform you, that I have tried your Italian Rat Paste on a large Farm and Premises ( where I reside), near this place, which was over- run with Rats, and in about a week it entirely cleared the Premises of the tame, having found upwards of three hundred of those vermin dead, ana doubt not but it killed many more ; and I am confident t4c- e is not one to be found on those Premises now.

The YORK BUILDINGS COMPANY, V. MACKEN- ZIE and Others. Counsel were finally heard in this long depend- ing cause, which it appeared has been in agita- tion for the period of eighteen years. The case was before their Lordships in the year 1795, when ( as we could collect) a decision with rested to some points of the case was made, referring certain other points to the re- consideration of the Court of Session in Scotland. The present Ap- peal was made res petting certain interlocutors in the second decision of the Court of:. : ssion. The AttornEY GENERAL and Mr. ADAM were heard on behalf of the Respondents; after which Mr. MANSFIELD for the Appellants, re- plied at some length. The LORD CHANCELLOR rose, and took a general view of the business, the peculiar circum- stances of which altogether, he observed, render- ed it a complicated, nice, and difficult case. His Lordship concluded by moving the House to re- solve, " That the Interlocutor complained of in this case he affirmed, and that the Appellants do pay. the sum of icol. costs, which was ordered accordingly. Tho MARQUIS of SALISBURY reported his MAJESTY'S Answer to the late Address of their Lordships, respecting the more effectual Promul- gation of the Statutes. The various Bills upon the Table were for- warded in their respective stages, after which the House adjourned till To- morrow. HOUSE OF COMMONS. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 14. JOHN LLOYD, Esq. took, the oaths and his seat for Flintshire. CORPORATION CAUSE BILL. Mr. COKE moved the Order of the Day for the House to resolve itself into a Committee on the Corporation Cause Bill, which being read, and a Motion being made that the SPEAKER do leave the Chair, Mr. WIGLEY said, that having at various former stages given his reasons for opposing this Bill, he would now confine himself merely to op- posing the SPEAKER'S leaving the Chair, without offering any farther reasons for it. Mr. COKE said a few words in answer, and submitted it to the House, whether after the Bill having so often had the sanction of the House, it would be Consistent to stop it here on the mere opposition of the Hon. Gentleman, without any argument being offered to ground a change in their determinations. He was surprised to find an attempt to prevent the SPEAKER'S leaving the Chair made by the Hon. Gentleman above all others : for no one liked attending Committees so well, and it was so far giving up his favourite amusement, and was as strange as if a school- boy should decline a holiday. The Gallery was cleared, the House divided, and there were for the SPEAKER'S leaving the Chair, ... - 36 Against it, 7 Majority for the Committee, - 29 The House then went into a Committee, in which several Clauses of the Bill became subjects of discussion and division. We were excluded, of course, during those divisions ; but we were given to understand, that in conclusion, the de- bate was, by agreement, adjourned for three months. Mr. HOBHOUSE said, he had intended to move that the Stamp Duty Bill, which had been so often postponed at the request of Ministers, should be again postponed to Monday next, on account of the indisposition of his Hon. Friend, Mr. SHERIDAN : but as there would be an oppor- tunity of opposing the Bill in a future stage, he had no objeftion to the House going into the business now. , BANK. The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER gave notice that he would to- morrow move for leave to bring in a Bill to continue the Act for restrain- ing the payment of cash at the Bank. STAMP DUTY BILL. The House being resolved into a Committee, Mr. HOBHOUSE stated, that there were three points in the Bill which he intended to oppose. One, the additional Stamp Duty on Mortgages- a second on Deeds of Transfer— and the third upon Agreements. And as he did not distinctly know when his time was for speaking to those points, he requested the Chairman of the Committee would give him notice. When the Clause was read, which hid a Duty on the Enrolment of Freemen in Corporations, Mr. WILBERFORCE BIRD rose, and moved that an exception should be made in favour of those who, after a long apprenticeship, were obliged to enrol their names before they could carry on their business— and suggested the im- policy of touching with a Tax, any Right of Franchise. Mr. PITT said, the payment of 4s. in a man's whole life, could not be considered as unreasona- ble or oppressive. The House, however, divided on it, and the Exception was over- ruled by 61 voices to 11. Mr. HOBHOUSE then objected to the three objects of Stamp- Duty, mentioned before, viz. Transfer Deeds; Mortgages, and Agreements— on the two last he did not mean to divide the House, but suggested the impolicy of them, as they would not only be unproductive, but injuri- ous to the present Revenue. On thc first, Trans- fer Deeds, he would take the sense of the House, 4s he held it to be oppressive. he disagreed with the Hon. Gentleman in opinion upon it, he thought it would possibly require se- parate discussion, and had therefore made it the subject of a separate Bill. When the Resolution for laying three halfpence duty on Newspapers came to be read, Mr. HOBHOUSE rose, and after expressing his regret that Mr. SHERIDAN was absent, said, he felt it his duty to state at this stage of the bu- siness his objection to this Tax. He conceived that it was brought in by the Minister with no other view than that of invading the liberty of the Press, and was only a part of that system which the Right Hon. Gentleman had so long pursued. In the Treason Bill there was a Clause which, by a general sweep, carried away a great portion of that invaluable right, forbidding, un- der a penalty, the People to write :— by the Sedi- tion Act they were forbidden to meet in order to confer;— so that by one Act; they were not to write, by a second they were not to confer, and by a third they were not to read. He understood that it was put off so long, to consider of granting relief to the Proprietors of Newspapers.— This shewed the Minister was conscious of the Tax bearing hard upon them. They could not but know too that the sale of Newspapers would be diminished: for the great increase of price would compel people to decline buying, and to enter into partnerships for the use of one Paper- where many are now taken, and to take only twice or thrice a week where they now take every day. Besides this, another hard, ship to the Proprietors of Newspapers was, the necessity of increasing their Capital. The CHAN- CELLOR of the EXCHEQUER had, in proposing the Tax, given in a calculation as if not one Pa- per less would be sold in consequence of this Tax— a fallacy of which he must at the time have been conscious. As to the Tax on Advertisements it must ne- cessarily be injurious to the revenue: for there would be fewer advertisements ; and when it was considered that the principal advertisers were booksellers, auctioneers, and venders of quack medicines, who brought a large revenue to the Crown, the House must see that taxing them would create a defalcation in the resources of the country. He therefore opposed the whole as an invasion of the liberty of the press, as oppresive to proprietors, and injurious to the revenue. Mr. PITT said, he had proposed the Tax upon the grounds that it was an article well able to bear it ; and considering the vast circulation of Newspapers, he did not know one article more fit for taxation. The consideration, then, was, what allowance should be made to those who might otherwise suffer by the necessary advance of ca- pital. In considering this, the fair inquiry was, what increase of expence might eventually fall on the publisher, and what on the vender -, what allowance should, on the whole, be made, and how that allowance should be distributed between vender and publisher, so as to prevent and take away the pretence for charging any addition above the new duty, to the price of the Paper. After a great deal of inquiry, he had no reason to think, that on any given number of Papers, the profit to the publisher and vender would not be as great as before, on giving them, on account of their increase ot capital, 16 per cent, on the whole amount of the Stamp Duty between them. It was impossible, he observed, to estimate what their loss might be, by diminution of con- sumption ; or to say that their profits, on the whole, would be as great as before : but this was an objection equally applicable to all objects of taxation. For his own part, he did not believe that the sale of Newspapers would he materially or permanently decreased; but, at all events, it was a case which admitted no cure, without in- troducing into the measure principles unknown in taxation. Mr. W. SMITH said, that the country News- papers would be ruined by the tax; besides News- papers were not like other objects of taxation : they were the conveyances of political intel- ligence, and everv thing that affected them af- fected the Nation at large in a political view; and this Act would go to throw Newspaper Pro- prietors, whose concerns were in a tottering si- tuation, immediately into the power of Adminis- tration, by rendering them more needy, and of course more liable to temptation. Mr. ROSE said, the Proprietors of Country Newspapers were their own venders, and the discount would more than meet their hopes. He had not had an opportunity of hearing this from themselves, but he had it from their Agent in London ; and the discount would en- able the Proprietors in town to make a sufficient allowance to the Venders. For, allowing the loss by an increase of capital to be 9 per cent, it would afford, after giving 4 per cent, allowance to the Venders, 3 per cent, additional benefit to the Proprietors— who would be so far better by the Duty than they were before. On a division, there were, For tho Additional Duty 6c Against it 10 Majority 50 The farther import of the Clauses respecting this Tax, was to allow 16 per cent. to those Newspaper Proprietors who increased the price of their Paper no more than Three- halfpence— and 4 per cent, to those who did.— After which the Chairman reported the Resolutions, and the Report was ordered to be received to- morrow. The House in a Committee, went throngh the Scotch Militia Bill.— Adjourned. THE S U N. LONDON, JUNE 15, 1797. AFTER our Paper was put to- Press yesterday; we had several times occasion to make insertions in it, in order to communicate to the Public the very important information which arose in the course of the day. We were enabled to state with certainty the appointment of Lord MALMES- BURY as our Negociator with France ; the ne- cessary Passport for himself and Suite having reached Lord GRENVILLE'S Office from Paris 0n Tuesday night. Yesterday forenoon a Cabinet Council met in Downing street, and a Messenger was imme- diately sent off to Lord MALMESBURY in the country, requiring his attendance in town. Lord MORPETH, it is said, will accompany Lord MALMESBURY. The rest of his suite have not yet been named. < It is reported that LISLE is to be the place of negociation and not Paris. It is also said that Lord MALMESBURY sets out on Saturday next. We do not vouch for the accuracy of these re- ports, but we have them from good authority. In addition to the above important intelligence, the Public was yesterday also made acquainted, through the channel of THIS PAPER exclusively, with the fact of the MUTINY at the Nore being completely AT AN END. We yesterday announced, that on Tuesday night, only Five Ships, viz. the Sandwich, Montague, Director, Inflexible, and Monmouth, remained at the Nore. These, early yester. day morning displayed a White Flag, in token of submission, and a Flag of Truce came on shore, to give information to the Admiral that PARKER was confined to his bed on board the Sandwich, by a fever, and that DAVIES was in irons on board that Ship. In the course of the morning Captain Moss, of the Sandwich, went on board, and PARKER was soon after carried on shore to Sheerness Garrison, where he underwent an examination before the Admirals BUCKNER and Lord KeITH, Commissioner hARTWELL, & c. & c. It was intended to have brought him to Town, but he was too ill to be moved, in consequence, it was supposed, of his having swallowed poison. Thus this formidable and alarming Mutiny and Rebellion is at length happily subdued, and in a way highly honourable to the dignity and firmness of the Executive Government, and ad- vantageous to the future discipline of the British Navy, without which, in place of being the glory and bulwark of the Nation, it would, as in this recent instance, become our reproach and our scourge. We have no doubt but that, with his accustomed clemency, His MAJESTY'S Royal Mercy will be liberally extended to these de- luded men ; but, at the same time, public duty demands that some signal examples should be made of the instigators of a Rebellion that might have been attended with consequences the most fatal to the British Empire. Yesterday a Court Martial was assembled on board the Clyde frigate in Sheerness harbour, for the trial of one of the Mutineers of the Repulse, who, when that ship left the Nore, made an at- tempt to blow her up, but was fortunately ar- rested on his passage to the Powder Magazine. We received the following Letters last night and this morning. " Sheerness, Wednesday, June 14. " Last night the Monmouth came into Harbour, and Sandwich moved her birth to the Little Nore. " PARKER has been sent to Maidstone. He says he can clear himself.— The Montague's Crew have delivered up their head Delegate, with seven or eight of his Co adjutors. All the Officers of the different Ships, who had been sent on shore, are going on board again." u Sheerness, Wednesday Afternoon. " The Monmouth has come into this Harbour, and the Sandwich has left her station at the Great Nore, and anchored at the Little Nore and submitted. PARKER, DAVIES, and GrEGOrY, the three principal Mutineers, arc secured. The for- mer either is, or affects to be, much indisposed. Se- veral of the other Delegates are also in custody. Those who had quitted that ship before she left the Fleet at the Nore, have been taken on shore; and ten 0n board the Monmouth, the most active in firing upon the Repulse, arc also secured, Upon her arrival in the Port, the- Commander in Chief sent fifty Soldiers on board, to bring them on shore. The Mutiny may be considered as at an end. It is much wished here, that a special Commission may be sent down immediately to try the Ringleaders of the Rebels, and that ex- " PARKER was for a short time on board the Bull- dog sloop of war; and I have heard that during the time he was a Midshipman on board th at vessel, he challenged Captain Riou upon a slight quarrel. On board the Lascelles East In- diaman, of which he was a Mate, he had many disputes with the Officers. At that time he was very much addifted to drinking, and in constant broils with all his ship- mates. He re a most worthless fellow, and his family have long been tired of getting him out of difficulties." " Rochester, June 14— Wednesday Evening. " The Sandwich is between the Ardent and the Sheerness Batteries. The Monmouth is in the Harbour, and the Inflexible and Belliqueux are the only two that remain mutinous. " The men who landed at Gravesend have been taken out of the Leopard, and marched off for Chatham : there are 63 of them from that one Ship, as fine looking lads as ever were seen— what pity, their inveteracy was not shewn hi a better cause. " Parker is taken to Maidstone Gaol ; Davies is supposed to have drowned himself. " The Ships now in the River are not com- pletely returned to their duty, and are not under the Command of their Officers. " The Warwick Militia marched into Gravcs- end this evening from Norwich ; a remarkable fine body of men. Detachments of the Prince's and 12th Light Dragoons are doing duty there ; and also the Yeomanry, who are most indefatigable. The Gravesend Volunteers have a Battery, and are always at the great guns, and in tents. There are near five hundred prisoners in Til- bury Fort, and the guns there pointed well for the Ships coming up." We lay before our Readers the details from the French Papers, of which we yesterday gave only- an abstract. Our receipt of the French Papers of the 12th inst. containing an Official Letter from General BUONAPARTE, we find to have been EXCLUSIVE. The Hamburgh Mail due on Wednesday, had not arrived when this Paper was put to Press, Yesterday morning THEIR MAJESTIES and the three elder PRINCESSES, came from Windsor to Buckingham House. The King came soon after twelve, in his pri- vate coach, to St. James's Palace. The Levee began at one, and was over at half past two o'clock. Present, His Serene Highness the Prince of ORANgE, the Turkish, Neapolitan, Swedish, PorT tuguese, Saxon, and other Envoys ; Baron Nolc- KEN, and Baron MONTESQUIEU, The Lord Chancellor. Dukes— Portland, Dorset, and Leeds. Marquisses— Salisbury, Bath, and Huntley. Earls — Chatham, Spencer, Westmorland, Berkeley, Darnley, Uxbridge, Warwick, and Harrington ( Gold Stick in Wait- ing)- Viccount Hood. Lords— Malmesbury, Somerset, Romney, Leslie, Brownlow, Calthorpe, Bagot, Hawke, and Rivers [ Lord of the Bed- Chamber in Waiting). Sirs— G. Bowyer, G. Shuckburgh, P. Littleton, R. Sloper, R.

Generals Adean ( Groom of the Bedchamber in Waiting), Stevens, Blathwait, Gordon, Bowyer; Colonel Glynn, and other Officers. Several congratulatory, and other Addresses, ! were presented by the Earl of WARWICK, Sir W. HEATHCOTE, Mess. KNIGHT, BARTON, & C. The personal Presentations were as follow ; Lord ROMNEY, on being appointed Lord Lieute- nant of the County of Kent; and Sir G. BOWYER, Bart, first time since the glorious first of June, when he commanded as Rear- Admiral— both of whom had the honour to kiss His Majesty's hand ; thc Count BRATAlle, by the Neapolitan Envoy; Mons. COMIER, from Lisbon, going Envoy to the Court of Stockholm, by POrtugueze Envoy ; Lord GARLIES, on his Mar- riage, by the Earl of UXBRIDGE ; Lord GEO. THYNNE and Mr. BRODErIC, on Marriage; Ma- jor- General BOWYER, on his arrival from the West Indies; Mr. StoNE, by the Duke of DOR- SET, 0n his return from attending the PRINCe and PRINCESS of WirtEMBERg to the Continent; and several Officers on Promotion. A Council was afterwards held in the Closet, when Lord ROMNEY was sworn in Lord Lieute- nant of the County of Kent, and took his seat as one of His MAJESTy'S Most Honourable Privy Council. After the Council the KING gave audience to. the Duke of PORTLAND, Marquis CORNWALLIS, Earl SPENCER, Earl of LIVERPOOL, and Lord GreNVILLE ; and at half past five His MAJESTy. set off to Buckingham House to dinner. Several Seamen, supposed to be Delegates, at- tempted to make their escape a few days since in, an open boat from the Nore. Finding both shores lined with Troops, they went down and turned the North Foreland, pursued by a Cutter, and' ran into one of the gates in the Isle of Thanet. The alarm was given, the Volunteers turned out, and they were taken. On Monday afternoon, a sailor belonging to His Majesty's Ship Gibraltar, of 80 guns, at Plymouth, was killed by the Boatswain's Mate of that Ship, for a very slight provocation : he first struck him a blow, which brought him to the ground, senseless ; he then jumped upon his body, and continued- his brutal treatment until all signs of life had left him. He was imme- diately secured, put in irons, and removed to the- County Gaol at Exeter, to take, his trial at the MAIDSTONE, JUNE 14, I am happy in acquainting you that Richard Parker, the Sham- Admiral at the Nore, was this evening brought to Maidstone Gaol, under a Guard of the East York Militia, amidst the ac- clamations of a vast number of Gentlemen and Yeomanry of the County, and joined by the loyal Inhabitants here, who, on his entering the Gaol, gave three huzzas. , I have been in company with the Constable, who says, that last evening about nine o'clock, a Lieutenant MOTT, of the Sandwich, took an opportunity of seizing Parker by the collar : he made little or no resistance, and was taken below, where, he was put in confinement ; and this morning at half past six o'clock, he was taken to the Commissioner's at Sheerness, and underwent an examination of three hours, and was committed to the Gaol here, for acts of Pi- racy and High Treason. He is to go to London on Saturday morning next, where he will undergo an examination be- fore the Privy Council. He is a native of Exeter ; has been in the Navy from the age of twelve years, and he is now about thirty- six He expresses his hopes he shall have an impartial Trial, and flatters himself he shall escape punishment. PLYMOUTH, JUNE 13. LORD BriDpoRt's Fleet again appeared off the Sound this morning, where they have been cruiz- ing off and on the whole day. The Minotaur, of 74 guns, which put in here on Saturday last, will rejoin the Fleet as soon as the damages she received are repaired. Several vessels are loading at the ViCtualling- Office here, with Provisions and Water, in order to carry to Torbay for the use of the Fleet, 40 which place they will certainly proceed in a short time. WEYMOUTH, JUNE 14. THE Alomette Frigate, with the Fleet under convoy for Lisbon, which sailed yesterday, are put back again, the wind coming round to the Westward. PARIS, JUNE 10. THE THEATRE. Covent Garden THE appearance of this Theatre last night was highly honourable to the feelings of Englishmen. The House was opened for the Benefit of the Widows and Orphans of the gallant Men who died, in the glorious ACtion of the 14th of Fe- bruary, under Lord ST. VINCENT, as well as for those who were wounded on that memorable occasion. At a very early hour the Theatre was crowded in all parts The dramatic entertainments were, The Country Girl, and No Song No Supper; and the Performers who liberally came forward in support of so in- teresting a cause, besides the ACtors of this The- atre, . were Mrs. JORDAN, BARRYMORE, and STO- RACE, who ail received the fervent tribute of public respect. Mrs. AbINGTON, after too long an absence from the Stage, considering the aCtive state of her powers, spoke art Epilogue, which had some merit in itself, though it bore little re- ference to the purpose of the night. To increase the attraction of the evening, and to render pleasure instrumental to a nobler object, DIDELOT, ROSE, GENTILI, PARISOT, and HIL- LIGSBERG, with all the subordinate Dancers of the Opera House, distinguished themselves by supporting the laudable undertaking. The in- teresting Ballet of Peggy's Love was given at the end of the Comedy; and the grand Ballet of Cupid and Psyche closed this triumph of British gratitude and generosity. The uncommon crowd at the Theatre may be referred to the attractions of the night; but the benevolence, which provided those attractions, and the extraordinary contributions of part of the Audience, form a strong reproach to the mutinous and rebellious crews at the Nore, who, while the Country is providing for the comfort and happiness of the wives and orphans of their deceased brethren, are aCting with the basest in- gratitude, joined to the most consummate Wicked- ness, towards that Country. Yesterday a Court of Directors was held at the East- India House, which adjourned at six o'clock, till Tuesday next. One evil consequence of the disorders in the Navy has been the dismission, by the Crews, of some of the best Officers in the service ; who are, by that means, deprived of all the benefits to which they arc entitled, in the line of their profession. This is a serious evil, both in re- spect of the Public, and with regard to the In- dividuals themselves. We think it a justice due from us to state that Mr. RUPERT CLARKE was the Magistrate who committed Richard Fuller on Saturday last, at the Public Office in Bow- street, for distributing Seditious Hand- bills to the Soldiers; and that the public are much indebted to the exertions of this gentleman, for having placed in The hands of justice the first offender against the late well- timed ACt of Parliament to prevent seducing his Majesty's forces, and a man whom every English- We are assured that a violent explosion is pre- paring in the Council of Five Hundred, the ob- jeCt of which is to make the parties declare them- selves, and to intimidate the weak. It is the unhappy Commune of Lyons which is to be the pretext. We ought, it is said, to de- nounce the assasins of the patriots, and to pro- pose measures proper to prevent a conspiracy upon the eve of breaking out. The Batavian Constitution is at length com- pleted, and it is to be presented for the approba- tion of the People. JUNE 11. The fate of Italy seems far from certain. The Republics which this Country has seen start up in the midst of her, during the last year, change their Limits and their Laws at the will of BUONAPARTE. Nothing can exceed our ad- miration of this Hero, and we think him deserving of every species of confidence. But it may, nevertheless, be a question whether sound policy dictates it to us to leave a General thus to make and unmake Governments at his pleasure, and whether it may not be attended with considerable inconveniences. Why does not the Directory rather adopt for Italy some system, the execution of which it might commit to the General; but- the absolute independence in which he is left, certainly furnishes a danger- ous example. He has just at one blow dissolved the Republic of Bologna, the Constitution and the Directors which he had given to it. The following is his order on the subjeCt.— Perlet. " Head- Quarters, at Montebello, 19th May.

Great News. — These consist of the Capture of Venice by the French, who had not set foot there before since the time of Pepin ; the destruction of an execrable Oligarchy; and the substitution of a patriotic Municipality. I am herewith Six Thousand Men, and a superb Fleet. The slaves in the pay of the British Minister, and of M.

VENICE, MAY 20.— The first aCt of our Pro- visional Municipality has been to vote public thanks to the Council, for the good- will with which they abdicated their functions, and re. nounced their privileges, as well as to the Com- mandants of the Armed Force, for having on the' day of the 12 th preserved the City from pillage, fire, and conflagration. They then sent two of their Members to General BUONAPARTE, to intreat him to grant a pardon generously to the three State Inquisitors, as well as to all those who were accused of having committed certain offences against the French Nation. On the 17th, they repealed all the Taxes on Wheat, Wine, and Meat. On the 18th, they ordered, by Proclamation, every Citizen to wear the National Cockade, of three colours, Green, White, and Red. They have besides diminished the price of a great num- ber of articles of food, forbidden the exportation of corn, and created a Military Committee, con- sisting of five Members. On the 19th, they declared, that, in conse- quence of the amicable entry ot French Troops, in order to guard and defend their City, Vessels laden with provisions should not be under the ne- cessity of having a Passport. Instead of these words on the Venetian Stan- dards, " Pax tibi, Marce," we read these "' I di- ritti del uom0 et del cettadino that is, " The Rights of Man and of a Citizen," LEGHORN, MAY 19. This morning, imme- diately after the arrival of a Courier from General BUONAPARTE, all the French Artillery- men and Sailors, Corsicans as well as others, set off to man the Venetian Fleet, of which the French had taken possession. Letters from Lisbon give an account of a very brisk ACtion, which took place on the Coast of Malabar, between four French Frigates, com- manded by Rear- Admiral SERCeY, and two Eng- lish 74 gun Ships, in which the latter were obliged, after an obstinate engagement, to make for Bombay, much shattered and leaky in all parts. It is firmly believed that the Venetian Repub- lic, and its possessions on Terra Firma, will be united to the Republic of Milan. The people of Faenza have dedicated a Tri- umphal Arch to General BUONAPARTE, with the following inscription : PostRIDIE KALENdAS FEbruARIAs, ANNO aerae CHRISTIANae CIOIOCCLXXXXVIl, REIpuBLIcAE GALLIcAE.

It is certain that the Directory have written to the EMPERoR; advising him, that in setting at liberty General LA FAYETTE, and his Com- panions in misfortunes, he would do a thing agreeable to the French Government.

BUONAPARTE, COMMANDER IN CHIEF OF THE ARMY OT ITALY, TO THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTORY. " Head- Quarters at Montebello, June 3. " CITIZENS DIRECTORS, " I send you by SERRURIER, a General of Division, . twenty- two Standards, taken in the last actions which were : fought in Germany, and against the Venetians. General SERRuRIER, during the last two Campaigns, displayed as much talent, as valour and civism. It was his Division which gained the battle of Moldovi, which contribut- ed so much to the victory of Castiglione, which took Mantua, and which distinguished itself so much in the passage of the Tagliamento and isonzo. " General SERRuRIER is a man of severe manners, in what relates to himself, and sometimes also in what respectS others. A strong friend to discipline, to order, and to the vir- tues necessary to support society, he disdains alike intrigues and intriguers— a circumstance which has sometimes raised him enemies amongst men who are always ready to accuse those of incivism, who are of opinion that submission is due to the laws and orders 0f our superiors. " I think General SERRURIER will be a very proper man to command the Troops of the Cisalpine Republic." OFFICE OF THE MINISTER OF MARINE. There has been brought into the road of Min- den, an American Vessel, with three masts, called the Oneida, laden with sugar, coffee, cotton, to- bacco, and rice, on account of the Enemy, and run on shore by Le Fataie Privateer, Capt. SAW- ESTRE. This Privateer also, after a battle of four hours, sunk the English Packet boat, the Eagle, of three masts, copper- bottomed, sixteen six- pounders, two eighteen- pound carrOnades, and four swi- vels, returning from Santa Cruz to Liverpool. The crew of the boat were saved, but the Cap- tain was killed in the engagement, and several men wounded. Another Privateer has brought a Prize into Perlier. JUNE 12. In consequence of the agreement between the Court of Vienna and GeneraL Buonaparte On Fridav last General Fox reviewed the Re- giment of Kent Yeomanry in Wilderness Park, the seat of Earl CAMDEN, their Colonel. In the absence of that Noble Earl, who is Lord Lieu- tenant of Ireland, the Regiment was commanded by Earl DARNLEY, the Lieutenant- Colonel.— They made an extremely fine appearance, and went through the sword exercise and various evolutions in the most correCt and soldier- like manner, at which the Reviewing General ex- pressed the highest approbation. After the Re- view, they marched to a temporary building ereCted in the Park, where a dinner was prepared for the whole of this most respectable Corps by the orders of their Colonel, Earl CAMDEN. The whole ( being 400 in number) were seated by troops, and the entertainment was conducted with the utmost order, hilarity, and liberality. Lord DARNLEY took the Chair, having General Fox seated on his right hand, and gave many excel- lent, loyal, and patriotic toasts, which were drank with peals of convivial acclamation. Among these were, The KING. The QUEEN and ROYAL FAMILY. The Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, and prosperity to our Sis- ter Kingdom. General Fox and the Army. The Yeomanry of Kent. The Navy. Earl CAMDEN, our Colonel. Earl DARNLEY. The Men of Kent, & c. & c. & c. An excellent Band of Music played during the entertainment, and accompanied these toasts with loyal and patriotic tunes, the effeCt of which was greatly heightened on drinkihg the King's Health, when every voice joined in chorus to " God save the King." The Festival being over, they all returned by Troops to their respective quarters, every man impressed with the attentive hospi- tality of their Colonel.

THIS was an ACtion against the Defendant to recover damages for criminal conversation with the Plaintiff's Wife.— The damages were laid at Ten Thousand Pounds. Mr. GILES having opened the pleadings, Mr. ErSKINE addressed the Jury— He said, the Plaintiff, who sought, by this ACtion, to recover a compensation for the injury he had re- ceived, was a very respectable merchant of the City of London, probably known to many, if not all the Gentlemen oh the Jury. The Defendant was Sir Thomas Turton, a Gentleman of high rank, and, as he understood, of considerable for- tune ; he was besides a married man, and the fa- ther of a family. As the Defendant was early in life, destined to the profession of the Law, and had been aCtually called to the Bar, he must have been led to estimate and contemplate, not only the nature of crimes, in general, but of this of- fence in particular, which, not only in its imme- dia te effeCt, by destroying the' happiness of an innocent husband, and ruining the peace of a fa- mily, but also in its consequences to Civil Society, was one of the deepest and most aggravated a man could commit. He was sorry to observe the course which the Defendant had instructed his advocates to take; they had directed all the witnesses tb withdraw from Court, and therefore meant, he supposed, to deny the faCt, which this declaration charged against him. The attempt in this case to evade justice would unquestion- ably fail ; but he should consider it as adding t0 the criminality of the Defendant— and when he had stated his reasons, he was sure the Jury would agree with him in that opinion. . Mr. ERSKINE then proceeded to detail the faCts of this case, which as they are again repeated in the evidence, we forbear to state at length here. He said, that Sir Thomas Turton having insi- nuated himself into the favour of the Plaintiff's wife, prevailed upon her at different times to meet him.— That they did frequently meet in Gray's- Inn Gardens, and these meetings lasted for a Considerable time. At length the Defendant grew more bold, and not satisfied with the vio- lation of the Plaintiff's honour abroad, he at last ventured to carry on his licentious intrigue under the roof of the injured husband. In order. to be more conveniently situated for the iniquitous purposes which he had in view, and, if possible, to escape detection, he took a lodging in the Ca- rolina Coffee- houSe, which is very near the Plain, tiff's house, and assumed the name of Thomas.—- From thence it Was that he was enabled to ob- serve the motions of the Plaintiff, and in his ab- sence to enter his house. He would prove, that at those interviews which took place between the Defendant and Mrs. Dunnage at her hus- band's house, they were frequently locked up for one and two hours together, sometimes in the. Lady's dressing- room; and sometimes in her bed room ; that after the Defendant had gone away there were marks of powder and dirt on the car- pet in the dressing- room ; and that when they were in the bed- room, the bed bore the appear- ance of two persons having been in it. It would appear also, that he came to the house without the knowledge of the Plaintiff, was let in secretly, and departed in the same secret manner.— But if these circumstances were not sufficiently strong to satisfy the minds of the Jury, he was prepared to lay before them some evidence of a less deli- cate nature, that would remove every doubt from their minds. The principal person employed by these parties was a girl of the name of Sarah Sefton, about whom it was necessary he should say a few words. She was an orphan her father, who had left her a small sum of money, had appointed Mr. Dun- nage, the father of the Plaintiff, his Executor.— The Plaintiff's wife expressed a wish that this girl should be introduced into the house, partly to attend upon her, and partly as her companion : She was accordingly brought into the house, and it would appear had been employed in the secret intercourse between the Defendant and Mrs. Dunnage. But he understood the Defendant meant in some degree to rest his defence, not by objecting to this girl's competency, but by insi- nuating that she was not deserving of credit ; if this was the course which his Learned Friends on the other side, meant to pursue, he was sure the Jury would agree with him in the observation he made in the early part of his speech, viz. that such conduCt would tend extremely to aggravate . the criminality Of the Defendant : for in this case he not only imputed to him the seduCtion of the Plaintiff's Wife, but he also charged him with debauching this girl. By that he did not mean that he had debauched her body, but her mind— . that he had corrupted her principles-— that he had injured her character, and cut off all her pros- peCts in life. There was one other circumstance in this Case which he was compelled to mention, though much against his own inclination, because it might make the Damages, which the Jury would give, appear as if given upon other grounds than those upon which he wished them to be given. Mrs. Dunnage was the niece of a Gen- tleman of the name of Frier, who, at his de- cease, bequeathed her a very considerable pro- perty, much more considerable than the amount of the Damages laid in the declaration. This property was, by the Will of her Uncle, settled upon her, to her sole and separate use ; and con- sequently this conduCt of the Defendant had not only broken in upon the peace of Mr. Dunnage's family, by depriving him of the affection and so- ciety of his Wife, but had actually injured him in a pecuniary point of view to an amount considerably greater than the damages were laid in the Declar- tion. Therefore, without appealing to their feel- ings as men of honour, he had a right to ask da- mages to that amount from their justice. He was sorry he had been obliged to introduce this part of the case, because it was not the part, upon which he wished them to frame their verdiCt." He who steals my purse, steals trash— steals nothing. ' Twas mine—' tis his, and has been slave to thousands could compensate the feelings of a husband under such circumstances. His domestic comfort was not only violated, his strongest attachment broken, and all his plans of happiness in life de. stroyed; but the very same act which made him unhappy, made him to a certain degree ridiculous. A man in this unhappy situation, without contri- buting to it by any misconduct of his own, always felt himself lessened in the eyes of mankind, and miserable when he was the subject of conversa- tion. Mr. ERSKINE concluded with observing, that he should now call his Witnesses, and if the de- fence was set up on the grounds he suspected, he should like nothing better, either for himself or his Client, than to have an opportunity of a re- ply. He called The Rev. Mr. Hughes, who proved the mar- riage of the Plaintiff and his Wife in the year 1788. Sarah Sefton said, she was an orphan— the Plaintiff's father was her Guardian; she was about sixteen years of age, and for some time previous to the separation of the Plaintiff and his Wife, she lived in his house as companion to Mrs. Dunnage. She was acquainted with the defendant; she remembered having seen him se- veral times with Mrs. Dunnage in Gray's. Inn Gardens.— Upon these occasions, Mrs. Dunnage and the Witness used to go in Mrs. D.' s chariot to the corner of Warwick- court, neat the Gar- dens ; they then alighted, and walked into the Gardens, where they met Sir Thomas. When they used first to meet there, Sir Thomas and Mrs. Dunnage used to walk apart by themselves, and the Witness walked by herself in another part of the Gardens. After they had met in this manner several times, the Defendant and Mrs. Dunnage, instead of walking apart, retired out of the Gardens, and remained about an hour and a half, or two hours. The Witness, in the mean time, remained alone in the Gardens. The De- fendant, upon these occasions, used to bring Mrs. D. back to the Gardens, and then the Wit- ness and Mrs. D. returned to the carriage. Sir Thomas never attended Mrs. D. to her carriage. The Witness once attended Mrs. D. in the cha- riot to Kensington Gardens ; they met Sir Tho- mas there ; they got into a hackney coach, and drove to a house. She did not know where it was. The Defendant and Mrs. D. alighted; the Witness remained in the coach, which drove to a public house in another street; it was there sent for, and the Defendant and Mrs. D. got into it, and drove back to the Gardens. She remembered Sir Thomas taking lodgings at the Carolina Coffee- house ; the witness has taken Letters to him there, addressed to " Mr. Thomas," which was the name Sir Thomas went by there. She used to receive Letters for Mrs. Dunnage, direCted to " Mr. Wilkins." Sir Thomas sometimes used to correspond with the Witness: in his Letters to her, he addressed her sometimes with " Dear Sally," sometimes • with " Dear Sister," and sometimes with " Dear Brother," at the beginning of his Letters, and always signed them by the name of " Anstey." The Letters which the Defendant used to write to Mrs. D. directed to Mr. Wilkins, used to be- gin sometimes with " My Dear Love," and sometimes with " Dear Margaret." Mrs. D. used to read them to the Witness. The Witness remembers Sir Thomas coming to her master's house. The Witness used to watch for him, and let him in ; he never knocked, but used to stand upon the steps of Mr. Thellusson's door, which was opposite to that of the Plaintiff, and when the Witness saw him, she used to go and let him in. Mrs. D. used to receive him in her bed- room, or in her dressing- room. They generally locked themselves in, and the Witness remained in the adjoining room. After Sir Thomas has left the house, the Witness has observed that the carpet in the dressing- room has been powdered very much ; and when they were in the bed- room, the bed used to be tumbled. When Sir Thomas was expected, Mrs. D. used frequently to change her linen, and to put on clean stock- ings. Once when Sir Thomas was- with Mrs. D. Mr. D. came in, and came up to his wife's dress, ing- room. The Witness gave them the alarm, and Sir Thomas was put into a closet in the bed- room. Upon another occasion, when Mr. D. unexpect- edly came home, Mrs. D. went down to the dining- room, where Mr. D. and his Brother were, and played upon her Harpsichord, while the Witness conducted Sir Thomas out of the house. On the night they were deteCted, they were, as usual, in the dressing- room locked in. Mr. D.' s brother and the Clerk came up stairs ; the Witness knocked at the bedchamber door— There were two doors to the room, Mr. James D. broke open one, and the Clerk broke open the other: they found Mrs. D. and Sir Thomas, there. Upon her cross- examination she said, that since the detection she has lived with old Mrs. Dunnage. She confessed that that Lady had urged her to state things in her evidence which were not true ; and had told her that it would only be a white lie, and what tradesmen were every day guilty of. She has ever since carried 0n correspondence with Mrs. D. the Plaintiff's Wife. The Plaintiff behaved affectionately to his Wife ; he used frequently to come home drunk ; some times he slept in his chair upon these occasions, and sometimes he went to bed. The Witness remembers his having- company at home, consisting of Gentlemen, and being so much intoxicated, as to be obliged to go to bed, and leave his Wife to entertain the company. The Witness has sometimes been obliged to clean the sheets, in consequence of Mr. D. being in- toxicated, and sick, before Mrs. D. went to bed. On her re examination, she stated some visits that were paid by Sir Thomas to Mrs. D. last Summer at Clapham. Martin Foster, Clerk to Mr. D. stated, that some circumstances having caused suspicions in . his mind, he one night observed the Defendant go into his Master's house. He immediately went in after him by another door, and in about half an hour went up stairs, accompanied by the Plaintiff's brother. They broke open the doors, and found Sir Thomas in Mrs. D.' s dressing- room. Lucy Rogers was Cook to the Plaintiff. She was down with her Mistress last Summer at Clap- ham. The Defendant used to come down on horseback, and walk about the Common; Mrs D. used to take her hat and cloak, and go out to him ; they used then to walk away, and be absent sometimes two or three hours. Mrs. D. was some time ill while she was at Clapham, and confined to her bed. Sir Thomas used all that time to come riding and walking about the Common. When Mrs. D. recovered, she walk- ed out to meet him : when they met, she flew in- to his arms, and he seemed as if he would eat her up. When they were in Town, she knew that some- body used to be in Mrs. D.' s bed- room and dres- sing- room: for she has listened and distinctly heard the voice of a man and a woman in them. After these visits the Witness has observed a great quantity of powder upon the carpet, not loosely scattered upon it, but apparently worked in. She was once called up after the Gentleman was gone,. and her Mistress desired her to make the bed : it had been before made in the course of the day. There were evident marks of two bodies having been on the bed. The Witness followed up this with an observation upon the . state of Mrs. D.' s linen, which delicacy will not permit us to repeat. John Chambers, the Waiter at the Carolina Coffee- house, said Sir Thomas Turton took a room there under the name of " Thomas." He used to come there about ten o'clock in the morn- ing, and stay till two or three. Nobody used to visit him but Sarah Sefton, Mr. Cooper, and a person who appeared like a Steward. Mr. Cooper, a Stock broker, proved, that the lodgings were taken at the Carolina Coffee- house by his advice, as Sir Thomas had some business to transact in the City. The Witness did not believe that lie took the lodgings with any view to the subjeCt which gave rise to this Cause. Lady Turton and several of Sir Thomas's inti- mate friends knew that he had a lodging there, and went by the name of " Thomas." The Witness at that time did much business for Sir Thomas in the Stocks. The Witness also proved the hand- writing of a Letter written by the Plaintiff to Mrs. D. the night after the disco- very^ in which he seemed to consider the Lady as very ill used by the intrusion which had been made into her apartment the night - before. Mr. Smalman, Executor to the late Mr. Fryer, proved that Mrs. D. was entitled, under the Will for her sole and separate use, to a sum of 1o, 0ool. besides which she was entitled to the reversion of one third of 2000I. per annum on the death of her mother, and one third of 170I. per annum. Dr. Taylor and Sir J. Eamer proved that Mr. D. was a kind, affeCtionate husband. Mr. PERCIVAL made a most able speech for the Defendant; he commented with the utmost ingenuity upon what he considered as a deficiency of proof of the adultery: he admitted that his Client had aCted with great imprudence, but without guilt. He had formed a very strong friendship for Mrs. D. which had led him to great imprudencies. He was a married man, and was the father of seven children, and the greatest part of his property came by his wife ; therefore if the Jury should feel themselves bound to give large damages, they would fall not upon Sir Tho- mas, but upon his innocent wife and children. He begged the Jury not to be too rash in judg- ing upon circumstances which certainly con- tained no positive proof of guilt. He lamented that he had not abilities equal to those opposed to him : for he felt the strongest and warmest anxiety in this Cause because his Client had re- peatedly assured him in the most solemn manner, that he was innocent of the crime now imputed to him. Lord KENYON said, that whatever might be the event of this Cause, the Defendant could not com- plain that his advocate had been either deficient in zeal or in ability. There were two points for the consideration of the Jury, viz. as to the proof of the faCt, and the extent of the damages. With respeCt to the circumstances given in evi- dence, they certainly were very strong, and call- ed upon the Defendant to give a clear explanation how he came to be under such circumstances with the Plaintiff's wife. As to the damages falling upon his wife and children, his Lordship ob- served that it had been the policy of all Laws, from those of Imperial Rome down to those of this Country; that by extending the effeCt of the Laws to the posterity of offenders, it operated as a stronger check upon the vices of mankind, than if the Law simply affeCted themselves. His Lordship observed, that there were some circumstances proved of Mr. D. being inebriated, and leaving his wife to entertain his company, which he did not approve of, and which he thought the Jury ought to take into their consi- deration. The Jury retired for a quarter of an hour, and brought in a verdict for 5000I. Damages. " Why," says the sober Citizen, ( when put in a state of requisition by his Wife and Daugh- ters to attend them to places of Amusement) " Why should we go to Sadler's Wells in pre- ference to any other Show Shop, when so many others are open ?" " Why, because in the first place," answer his Girls and their Mamma, " Sadler's Wells is the oldest and most respect- able Shop of them all-; because, in the next place, they have brought out a grand new Pantomime, and above all, because every body goes to see it." The reasons, though womanish, appear feasible. A Bill of the Entertainment is pro- duced, all doubts and hesitations are done away by the Ventriloquist and the Rope Dancing, the Duke of Wirtemberg's Picture, and the Portraits of the Admirals, and off goes the family ding dong for the Wells, with as many of their neigh- bours as the tea table of the afternoon can colleCt into their party.

EDINBURGH, JUNE 10. last Monday two men found a large dead whale, floating on the sea, and brought it into Carrick shore. He measures 90 feet in length, and about 50 in breadth, and his tail feet long. Thirty men and women stood in his mouth, and not near full. In the Camp on the left bank of the river Don, near Aberdeen, the Anniversary of His Majesty's Birth was marked with every circumstance of loyalty and respeCt. At noon the whole line were under arms, and after firing vollies and feu- de- joye, the Artillery, Dragoons,. and Infantry march- ed up from the ground 0n which they first formed, in a very grand stile, saluting the General as they passed. General Hay, who commanded, gave an ele- gant entertainment in honour of the day. to the Officers of the different Corps, and to a very nu- merous company of Ladies and Gentlemen from Aberdeen. The Soldiers also, by the generosity of General Hay, shared in the festivity of the day, and drank His Majesty's Health from hogsheads of porter. We hear from Dunkeld, that on Monday last at noon, a number of Gentlemen of that pla_- e, who had voluntarily got themselves trained to the use of arms, assembled on Stanly Hill, which lies adjacent, and after a discharge of artillery be- longing to His Grace the Duke of Athol, fired several vollies in a manner that would do honour to a veteran Corps. The evening concluded with ringing of bells, bonefires, & c, & c. till ranks vying with each other in expressing- their attachment to the Constitution, and long life to the best of Kings. CRIEFF, JUNE 6. The King's Birth- Day was yesterday celebrat- ed at this place with extraordinary pomp and fes- tivity.— Sir William Murray of Ochtertyre, De- puty Lieutenant for the district, attended by Mr. Stewart of Ardvorlich, Mr. Drummond of Stra- gaith, Mr. Drummond of Comrie, and the Fac- tors of the absent Proprietors, entered the Square about three o'clock, at the head of 700 men, all inrolled as Volunteers of this district, who, be- ing most of them dressed in the loyal uniform, a blue coat with scarlet cape, made a very fine ap- pearance indeed. After being drawn up in Com- panies, before the principal inn, the King's health was drank, amidst'the loudest acclamations. The Volunteers then repaired to a Court adjoining to the Inn, which was fitted up for the purpose, when they partook of a sumptuous entertainment. After dinner, the King's health was again drank, with the health of those who have the sense to support him, together with many other loyal and apposite toasts. After rising from table, the. Vo- lunteers returned to the Square, where they were drawn up in line and dismissed, the Highland Lads retiring, as they had come in, with their respective Landlords at their head, each preceded by a piper playing the martial airs of the Country. The Favourite, Mulrea, from Martinico to Cork, is taken by the Thetis French Frigate, in lat. 34. long. 35. and sunk.— The crew are car- ried to Rochefort.

An extraordinary circumstance took place at Bury on Monday evening :— In going down the hill of Eastgate- street, one of the wheel horses in the Norwich stage- coach fell down, and in its struggle to get up again, accompanied by the exertions of the driver to bring him on his legs, he broke his traces and also the reins, by which the coachman was pulled off the box, and the horse got entirely free. The other three horses ran away with the coach to the Six Bells, turning the corners with the greatest safety, but from the rapidity of their pace were unable to stop at the inn door as usual, on which they entered into the Chequer, and nearly rounded the obelisk, where two female passengers on the roof, and one within, alighted unhurt, though much frightened. ' The coachman received a slight contusion on the head, but a man on the outside, who jumped off the box, received n0 injury. BIRTH. On the 8th inst. at Bath, the Lady of John Ensor, Esq. or a Son.

In testimony of the singular virtues of the Cardiac and Ner- vous TinCture, in the cure of Spasms, Mrs. Young, of the Parish of Fresh Water, in the Isle of Wight, has esteemed it her duty to transmit to Mr. Rymer the following account of her recovery, namely, Mrs. Young laboured under a nervous disorder, which particularly affeCted her jaw and tongue, in a degree beyond description. the spasm first attacked her in February 1794, and so increased till November, that at times her screams were heard at a great distance ; no words can de- scribe the misery she endured. At last, hearing of the Car- diac and Nervous TinCture, she resolved to try it; she ac- cordingly procured a bottle of it, and had not taken that excel- lent Medicine three days before she found a considerable bene- fit, and she now has the happiness to declare, that, by the continuance of the Medicine, and the blessing of God Al- mighty, her severe affliction is removed. March 31, 1795. Mr Rymer begs to add, that various dangerous and severe spasms in the throat, chest, stomach, & c. in and and in utero, have been relieved and removed by the above Medicine, when all other means had been tried ineffectually, many of which cases may be seen in the Pamphlet of Directions and Diet, among the Certificates of Cures, delivered with the bottles. 7 To Mr. RYMER, Gerrard- street, Soho. Sir, ever since your Cardiac Tincture removed my Paraly- tic, Nervous, and Bilious Disorder, of which I gave you an account some years ago, I have recommended it to a great many others, and I have never known any one take it without the most wonderful good effects. One friend lately took it with the greatest benefit, in a numbness in her limbs, a wan- dering and giddiness of head, with a sick windy stomach. Another a young woman, dying a longtime with spasms in her stomach, has been cured by your very excellent Medicine. I am, Sir, your obliged humble Servant, Manchester, Aug. 20, 1796.
