ADVERTISEMENtS taken in by W. TAYLOR, PRINTED AND PUBLISHED BY MEGGY, CHALK, AND CO. CHELMSFORD, ESSEX. FRIDAY, APRIL 29, 1803. 5 AIso GArraWAV'S, the ChAPTeR, LONDON, J } and PeeLe's, Coffee- houses, London. £ Price 6d. sunday's post. LONDON. SATURDAY. APRIL 23. last night, at seven o'clock, his Grace the Duke of Bedford passed over Westminster- bridge in a chaise and four, with a grand retinue, for Dover, there to embark for France. His Grace did not leave town till he was assured that an interruption was likely to take place on either . It i^ mentioned, among the articles of Paris Ne » the Hamburgh Correspondenten, that ar others, an English Officer, wearing the a Turkish Order of Knighthood, was ; d to the First Consul, at one of his public audiences, by Lord Whitworth. Bona- parte asked the Officer Where he had earned that honour?" " At Aboukir," replied the Of- ficer. Bonaparte answered not, but turned away with looks strongly expressive of dissatis- faction. By the last American Papers we find, that the Marquis de Casas Yrajo has sent a note to the • American Secretary of State, infonning him, that he takes upon himself to give the Americans the use of the port of New Orleans, as before, He says, that neither the Intendant nor the Go- vernor of New Orleans dispute the right of the 9 Citizens of the United States to a place of de- position tfie Spanish banks of the Mississippi; but the Intendant thinks that the term of three years, allowed for the purpose at New Orleans, having expired, and much prejudice to the Royal interests being experienced from its con- tinuance in that city, it was incumbent on him to suspend the deposit there, without venturing to take on himself the assignment of another equivalent place. Field- Marshal Mack has returned from the tented field, to farm his domain in Bohemia, with an additional pension of Sooo guilders per ann. to— speed the plough ! Thursday, in the House of Commons, a mes- sage from the Lords announced, that their Lordships had agreed to the amendments made by this House in the Bill for Officering the Militia.— The Clergy Residence Bill was read a second time, and committed. The Chancellor of the exchequer moved the order of the day for the House to resolve itself into a Committee, to consider of so much of this Majesty's Speech to both Houses of Par- liament, on the 13d of November, as relates to trie facility to be given to mercantile transac- tions.— The Speaker having left the Chair, the Chancellor of the Exchequer stated, that the object of the measure which he was about to submit for the consideration of the Committee, was intend- ed to simplify, consolidate, and amend the mode of collecting the duties. He wished to be understood, that the present measure was calcu- lated to form only a part of a more general sys- tem, which it was in contemplation to adopt, for revising and amending all the laws which relate to the public revenue. Under the opera, lion of the proposed measure, the duties would appear clear, precise, and uniform, a facility would be given to the collection of the duties, and at the same time the public revenue bene- fitted:— hi some cases, where fractional sums were payable, then it was intended to raise the duties for integral sums above the fractional part, and in other cases below it. In some instances, it would be observable, that in the Book of Rates, many would be omitted, and Others introduced. Duties ad valorem would be commuted for rated duties, and some of the rated duties made ad valorem. It would be proposed, that in many articles imported duty free, a small duty should be imposed. It was proposed that most of the articles imporl- • ed from the East Indies, excepting sugar, should be liable to the same duties a? the importations from other parts. The West India sugar would aho be liable to some little addition of duty. Some articles in the Schedule would, in order to counteract the views of the smuggler, be iaxed considerably higher. This would have the effect of damping the contraband trade, which was a great source of detriment to the revenue. It would therefore be necessary that these articles should not be admitted under a high duty, in order to discourage the smuggler, and prevent an introduction of the articles. If the resolution he now proposed should meet the approbation of the Committee, he should bring forward a measure for that purpose. After some observations on the commercial property of the country, the Right Honourable Gentle- man moved the Resolution, which went to pro- pose that the present duties on the importation • of goods should cease and determine, in order to adopt the proposed Schedule, which was agreed to. Yesterday, a message from the Lords an- nounced that the Royal Assent were given by Commission to the Four Million Exchequer Bill, Sir J. Saumarez's Annuity Bill, the Militia Offi- cers' Bill, and the American Commissioners' Bill. — On the mot ion of the Chancellor of ( he Ex- chequer, it was ordered, that a Select Committee be appointed to enquire into the Report made by the person authorized to examine into the state of the Highlands of Scotland. The object • f the . enquiry was to prevent emigration, and to give every facility to the improvement of TO important a part of the British Empire. ESSEX. EASTER QUARTER SESSION, 1803.

A letter from Brest, by yesterday's mail, states, that less activity prevails there at the pre- Stilt moment than at any time during the last ten years. The advices from every part of the French Republic are alike pacific, and so far from the mercantile interest being apprehensive of War, colonial produce, which rose consider- ably on the first alarm, is every day falling in price, and rapidly approaching its former level. Accounts from St. Domingo mention the arrival of some further reinforcements from Europe, and that Rochambeau was on the point of opening the Campaign. The last advices from Spain assert that every thing remains in a state of complete inactivity in the ports of that kingdom, and all the recent acts of his Catholic Majesty seem to indicate a desire to preserve a proper understanding with this country. The Spanish Ambassador, the Chevalier D'Anduaga, is at length arrived.— He landed at Dover on Sunday, from France, accompanied by a numerous suite. The health of Earl St. Vincent is so much im- proved, that it is now thought his Lordship will be disposed to continue in the high and im- portant Office he fills, in order that, under his « Ktn and penetrating judgment, me great Naval " Reform may be perfected, which he has so laud- ably instituted. Dispatches were on Saturday received by Go- vernment from Vice- Admiral Sir Roger Curtis, dated Cape of Good Hope, February 21.— They state the arrival a few days before of the Concorde frigate. Captain Wood, with orders for the evacuation of that place by the British troops. On the z ist it was accordingly surren- dered to the Dutch; and the British squadron was to take its departure from thence about the latter end of the same month. A Proclamation was immediately issued by General Dundas, absolving all the inhabitants of the Colony from their oath of allegiance to his Britannic Majesty; and that settlement is now, of course, in full possession of the Dutch forces. The Paris Journals of the 21st inst. contain some farther particulars of the correspondence between the Commissioner of the Grand Master of Malta and Sir Alexander Ball, the Governor of that Island. The former failing in his first e ideavour to obtain the evacuation of the place by the Britisli troops, has called in the French Minister to his assistance; but although the r- fusal on our part to relinquish possession is affected to be deemed a breach of the tenth article of the Treaty, Sir Alexander Ball con- tinues firm, and, the stipulated guarantee not being obtained, very properly objects to any measure that is not authorized by the express injunction of his Government. in the House of Commons, on Monday, Mr. Patten gave notice that in compliance with the wishes of many Gentlemen, he should postpone the motion of which he had given notice, for an Enquiry into the State of the Nation.— The Chancellor of the Exchequer said, it was possible for him to say whether or not he should be in a situation to make any communication be- fore Friday, but the House may rest assured, that when his Majesty's Government was in pos- session of what may be deemed of sufficient im- portance to make a communication upon, no time should be lost in laying the same before the House.— Mr. Patten replied, that the notice he had given was provisional. He did not wish to exclude himself from embracing in his mo- tion any topics which, in consequence of the communication, it might be necessary for him to consider, and observed, that if no communi- cation should be made, he would certainly bring forward his motion on Tuesday sc'nnight.— Sir Henry Mildmay said, that he had given notice, before the Christinas recess, of his intention to bring forward a motion respecting the abuses which had been practised in the Naval De- partment. He wished to ask an Honourable Gentleman, whom he saw in his place, when it was likely that a Report would be made from the Committee. Near four months had elapsed since the Committee had begun their enquiry, and no Report had been made to the House. - The Honourable Baronet waited some time, and no answer being given, he said he should submit a motion on the subject on Thursday se'nnight. The Banking- House which stopped payment on Saturday is said to have failed for 500,000!. One of the partners is son- in- law to Lord Mel- ville. An Infirmary for the County of Bedford is nearly completed at Bedford, according to the will of the late Mr. Whitbread, who bequeathed for that purpose the princely legacy of 8000I. Six of the young Naval Officers, who com- mitted a riot at the Portsmouth Theatre some time since, were arraigned at the Sessions, and pleaded guilty. Mr. Burroughs, the Recorder, addressed them in a very impressive manner, and earnestly recommended to them never to draw their swords again, except in the de- fence of their country. He should not sentence them to imprisonment, as some of their ships were on the point of sailing; yet he felt it his duty to pass such a sentence, as, he trusted, would serve to prevent such outrages in future. The Recorder then sentenced two of them to pay a fine 40I. three of 151. each, and one of 10!. Sunday morning a poor man cut his throat in a fit of insanity while shaving himself, at his lodgings, in Earl- street, Seven Dials. He was conveyed to the Work- house till the Coroner' Inquest shall be taken. On Sunday afternoon one of the heaviest showers of hail almost ever remembered fell in the neighbourhood of Windsor, particularly about Colnbrook and Percy Lodge; the force of the hail- stones was such as to pierce the leaves of the cabbages and other plants, as though they had been shot at; the ground was completely covered, nearly shoe- deep ; it was accompanied by tremendous thunder ami lightning. The gar- deners' glasses and frames have suffered very much, and great part of the wall and other ' fruit, it is feared, are destroyed. The amount of the Permanent Taxes is at present 27,531,358!. 14s. <> id. The Archbishop of Canterbury has recently- proved himself an exemplary encourager of en- closing Waste Lands, within the county of Kent. Most of the Wastes for several miles 011 this side Canterbury, belonging to that See, his Grace lias kindly allotted in different portions, from one to ten acres, to various deserving and in- dustrious men, on trifling fines, for the term of thirty years. • More than forty neat white cot- tages have already been erected upon them, to the great comfort of as many poor families, and the credit of an extensive district, which a well- directed benevolence has so highly^ Ornamented, and essentially improved. Yesterday morning, about eight o'clock, Cor- poral Lynn, of the second battalion of the ar- tillery, was shot at Woolwich Warren, for having deserted from three several regiments; the procession from the prison was as follows:— first, drums and fifes; second, the prisoner; then six privates; and lastly, the band. The prisoner shewed not the least signs of dismay or contrition, and even the moment before his exe- cution, he smiled and said, without the least concern, it was the happiest day of his life. He sat down on his coffin; the soldiers appointed for that purpose fired and killed him instantly. On Saturday William Newton was appre- hended, on suspicion of having been concerned the murder of Mr. Steele. He was sent by Lieutenant- Colonel Ray from Uxbridge, and was examined on the same evening and yester- day morning. The different parties attended from the country, as well as Mr. Bullock, the Surgeon belonging to Hounslow Barracks. It clearly appearing that Newton was innocent of the charge, he was set at liberty. Robert Smith was capitally convicted at the Old Bailey, on Saturday, for robbing Francis Tredwell, on the highway, the 6th of March last, of twenty- two shillings and sixpence.— The prosecutor is a hackney- coachman, and was called ofl" the stand by the prisoner, and ordered to drive to Paddington; when he arrived there, the prisoner jumped out of the coach, presented a pistol to his head, and demanded his money.— There were no less than six indictments against the prisoner; five for highway robberies, and the sixth for maliciously shooting with intent to kill. Yesterday Peter Gregory was indicted at the Old Bailey for putting off a forged Bank- note to Mrs. Goodall, in March 1802, knowing the same to be false and counterfeit.— It ap- peared by the testimony of Mrs. Goodall, that at the time mentioned in the indictment, her husband kept the Boar's Head public- house, in Exeter- street, Strand, and that she gave the prisoner change for a one pound note, desiring him to write his name on the back, but whether he did or not she could not say, for the note was put amongst a great many others without any notice being taken of it. In the May following a one pound note was stopped at the Bank, hav- ing upon the back, Peter Gregory, No. 3, Cra- ven- buildings, which was the name and address of the prisoner; this note was traced to have been given in change by Mr. or Mrs. Goodall, and upon information being given to them there- of, they concluded that it must bfe the one which had been taken of the prisoner; he was applied to, on which he went to the Bank, where he denied it to be his hand- writing, or that he had passed any one pound note to Mrs. Goodall though he afterwards agreed to let her deduct its value out of some linen which 6he purchased of him.— To bring the fact home to the priso- ner, a man of the name of O'Laughlin was exa- mined, who went into a long history of his getting acquainted with Gregory, and a person of the name of Warren, and of his having a variety of dealings with them respecting forged one pound Bank- notes; in the course of which Warren told him that he made the paper for and printed the notes, and that Gregory filled them up; the latter at the time adding, that, when sober, he could imitate any man's hand- writing in the kingdom; he said they also acquainted him that they had carried on this traffic for the space of six years without the least detection: that they had put many off at the playhouses, and twenty of a night at Vauxhall Gardens; but that they generally passed them at public houses ; this led to the only part o£ his evidence which applied to the present indictment, he swearing positively that Gregory told him that he had put off one at a public house in town, for which he had been examined by the inspec- tor at the Bank, and had got off by denying his name which was written on the back.— This was considered as a sufficient corroboration of the identity of the notice in question, and he was consequently found Guilty. Presence of Mind.— A young monk in Italy on shewing the curiosities of his monastery to some strangers, told them that the most extraor- dinary thing of all remained for their devout in- spection ; and- then pointing to a casket, gravely assured them that therein was contained a feather which dropped from the wing of the angel Gabriel when he visited the Virgin Mary. The company were on tip- toe to see this won- derful object, when, lo ! on opening the box, nothing was found therein but a cinder which some wag had put there to mortify the holy- brother. No ways daunted at this unexpected disappointment he thus addressed the company, " Well, though the feather is removed, here is a curiosity worth notice, for this is an identical coal which helped to roast St. Lawrence." MARMONTFl.— This great Author was born in the little village of Bort, at the foot of Mount D'Or, pursued his studies at Toulouse, was crowned at the games of Flora, and attracted to Paris by the advice of Voltaire, whom he al- ways called his master. He made his debut in the literary world by Bellisarius, which he first published, and which procured him the Doctors of the Sorbonne for antagonists. He afterwards launched into all the species of literature ; tragedy, opera, ballad, tale. In the latter he greatly excelled ; and his Contes Moraux are, perhaps, of all modern works, the most known and celebrated throughout Europe. He also wrote a poem, and has proved, besides a thousand others, that it is more facile to trace rules than to follow ( hem. The best French the- atrical pieces are Racine's, as those, for ode and fable, the works of Rousseau and la Fontaine. Marmontel saw his patrons and friends suc- cessively drop off before him, Voltaire, Vauve- nargues, Florian; a misfortune reserved for those who attain to advanced years. He died at Gail- Ion, in the ancient palace of the Archbishops of Rouen, the last day of the year 1799, aged up- wards of 80. This century, for ever celebrated by the eloquent pens of Montesquieu, Buffon, Rousseau, d'Alambert, Voltaire, Thomas, and the charming productions of Florian, Favart, and Marmontel, has, as one may say, been closed by him.

' James Alston, of Bocking aforesaid, the said Martin Carter. desired James Alston, By the last Dutch Mail accounts have been re- ceived,. of an unexpected insurrection having broken out in Arabia, where a man of the name of Abdul Mechab has collected a great number pf partisans, and threatens the overthrow of the ( present religious constitution of Arabia and Tur- key. His followers are excited to massacre in- discriminately all those who acknowledge the Grand Seignior as Sovereign Caliph ; and he liar; h^ s declared, that he will immediately advance to take possession of the cities of - Mecca and Medina. The partizans of the present establish- ment were, in consequence, flying on all sides, aud the army of this blood- thirsty leader was ad- vancing with hasty strides towards Mecca. the French Legislative Assembly on Satur- day last, a Member opened a discussion upon the plan of a law for granting to the national vete- rans, stationed in the 26th and 27th military di- visions, ( conquered countries) certain national lands. In thecourse of his speech he took a view of the late war, and of the plans of domestic pros- perity which have followed it, paying the high- est compliments to the- First Consul. The per- manent encampments of these troops in their stations would render them the brethren of the inhabitants; in time of peace they would employ themselves in cultivating their lands, which, after twenty- five years would become their own, and might be alienated. He concluded by saving, " if ever our neighbours, jealous of our glory, should wish again to cover the earth witli mourn- ing, and to try the fate of battles, what energetic resistance would these old soldiersoppose to their | invasion, fighting for their homes, and finding all the vigour of age in the remembrance of their victories. Victory and the national will have irrecoverably fi# xed the limits of the French em- pire where Nature herself placed them. You will render tliein indestructible by confiding them to the defence of these respectable warriors." A lettgr from Stockholln, dated April 1, states that suspicions have been for a long time enter- tained. of the conduct of Boheman, the Secretary of the Court; in consequence of his mysterious conduct he was closely watched by the Police, and the whole of hi* plans have been discovered. It appears from his ^ papers, that he is a Member, or perhaps the Chief, of an Association who call themselves the Asiatic Brothers, who are bound by the most solemn oaths to pay the most im- plicit obedience to an unknown Council. The object of this institution was nothing more or less than to be arbiters over all governments, to decide upon peace or war, and upon the lives and deaths of sovereigns. This Society took its rise in Germany, but it spread with so much rapi- dity, that the Chiefs were obliged for some time to suspend the meetings of the Members, lest they should attract too much public attention. A letter from the Hague, dated April 22, says, — For several days there has been no new ar- rival of the French troops 011 our territory. Bat the expenditure which those already here have cost the Government, has so exhausted the pecuniary resources of the State, that several de- partments have been rendered unable to pay the salaries due to their official servants, for the last three months. All is in the greatest embarrass- ( m « » nt, in regard chiefl yto financial rrwttw*. Owr public funds, however, keep up greatly above their real value ; for it requires little skill in cal- culation to foresee, that if war should take place a general bankruptcy must here ensue. But our Government appears to have good hopes of the continuance of peace. Within these last three or four days orders have been given to renew the equipment of ships for the Whale Fishery, which had been interrupted, as well as to put the ships destined for the West Indies in a condition to sail. A large sum of money has been put on board a ship belonging to the Asiatic Council, which is soon to sail with it for Batavia. It is to be hoped that the measures of the Government will be crowned with happy success. A letter from Flushing,' inserted in one of our Gazettes, contains the following passage:—" The convey- ance of artillery, and the requisitions of labour- ers and horses, in the isle of Walcheren, still con- tinue. At Middleburgh, General Monnet's au- thority has not been acknowledged; and we learn that his demands have been here resisted." The Minister has declined all interference with the election of a Scotch Peer, agreeably to the constitutional principle, that regulated his conduct through the whole of the late general election. We have to state, that the Honourable East India Company's ship the Travers, Capt. Tho. Sanders, arrived at Colombo on tin? 2< 1 of No- vember, with a detachment of his Majesty's 65th Regiment, consisting of 205 men; the Travers, was to sail for Bombay the 7th of No- vember. Captain Macnamara is now in a progressive state of recovery; and hopes may therefore be entertained that that gallant officer will shortly be able to resume the duties of his profession. The partnership ' of the Banking- house which stopped payment on Saturday had previously been dissolved, and Mr. Agnew, whose, bank- ruptcy is announced 1 the Gazette of-' 1 uesday, it should seem was the only proprietor at the time the failure took place. The former firm of the house was, Strange, Dashwood, Peacock, and Agnew. A few days ago, a poor man, at Chertsey, died of a locked jaw, in the most excruciating agony, occasioned by cutting a corn, which had been troublesome, rather too close ; in conse- quence of which he was seized with such acute pain as to prevent him putting his foot to the ground, and expired, as above described, three days after. Yesterday morning, about seven o'clock, a fire broke out at the house of a tailor, in Castle- street, Falcon- square, Aldersgate- street, the in- side of which, with the furniture, were entirely consumed. Tuesday, John Grant, the person in custody on a charge of firing two pistols, loaded with powder and ball, at Mr. Spencer Townsend, the 16th inst. in St. James's- place, was finally exa- mined before Mr. Bond and Sir W. Parsqns, at Bow- street, and fully committed to take his trial under the Black Act. The folal amount of the Public Expenditure, from the 5th of January, 1802, to the 5th of January, 1803, including the Irish Loan of 2., ooo, oool. and the interest of the Imperial Loan, was 54,2 59,301!. 4s. o| d. Yesterday, in the Court of King's Bench, Mr. Erskine moved for a rule to shew cause why a criminal information should not be filed against Mr. John O'Reilly, foi challenging Dr. Mingay. — From the statement of Mr. Erskine, it ap- peared that the parties reside at Windsor, Mr. O'Reilly practising as an apothecary, and Dr. Mingay as physician. Some circumstanees had occurred in the former's practice, which Dr. Mingay, having recommended him, did not like; he accordingly stated so - much to Mr. Clode, a patient. Some letters passed in conse- quence, and Mr. O'Reilly meeting the Doctor afterwards, called him a damned cowardly ras- cal, and desired that he wotild meet him with pistols. On the affidavits being read, disclosing these circumstances, a rule was. granted to shew cause.— Mr. Jervis moved for a writ of Habeas Corpus, to bring up the bodies of Lieutenants Fraiicis Hastings and John Fortescue Morgan, committed upon the Coroner's inquest, for wilful murder, to Dorchester gaol. These gentlemen, in concert with Captain Wolfe, of L'Aigle sloop of war,, were on the impress service in theisle of Portland, with a warrant backed by the Mayor of Weymouthr and were resisted by the inhabitants; in the scuffle, the Captain's pistol by accident went off; in consequence of which, the assailants fired several gun- shots, which' wounded five of the seamen. In endeavouring to execute their duty, and impress the men, three of them were killed. Mr. Jervis also moved, that the evidence , taken before the Coroner be laid before the Court, and that the proceedings be removed by certio- rari.— Rule granted. At the Old Bailey, yesterday, Patrick Coffee, alias William Boulton, was capitally convicted for feloniously personating, and falsely assuming the name and character of one Patrick Coffee, late Serjeant of Marines, entitled to certain prize monby, as serving in his Majesty's ship Hector, ? with intent to defraud Christopher Cook and James Halford.— Thomas Hughes was tried upon the capital charge of stealing a red morocco purse, containing two ten pound Bank notes, and other notes to the amount of six pounds, the property of T. W. Tatersall, in the dwelling- house of Mary Ann Cotton. The Jury found him guilty of stealing only.— Thomas Jones was also tried iipon the capital charge of feloniously breaking into the dwelling- house of Thomas Gover, in the day- time, certain persons being thereiu, and stealing a cotton gown ; but the Jury found him guilty only of Stealing.— Patrick Craig was found guilty of stealing a quantity of sheet lead ; Thomas Moore, for stealing two half crowns and four shillings; Thomas Gallo- way, for stealing a piece of printed calico; anil Thomas Freeman Jones and Mary Smith, for stealing various articles. Twelve other prisoners were tried and acquitted. Yesterday morning were executed at the Old Bailey, J. Jemmet, for forging and- uttering a promissory note, and M. Healy, for personating a seaman, in . order to defraud him of his_ prize- money. Jemmet was a stout well- looking mid dle- aged man ; Healy was quite a youth, of a rather interesting appearance. They both conducted themselves in a manner becoming their awful situation: the execution occupied a short space of time, and was not attended by any very great concourse of spectators. The speech delivered by Lord Moira at the Anniversary Meeting of the Westminster Literary Society, on Monday, was finely illustrative of the benefits resulting to Society from the general diffusion of knowledge. After a most elegant exordium, his Lordship thus proceeded:—" I am persuaded, all of you can bear witness to the immense benefits that must inevitably accrue to this country from the increase of similar insti- tutions, and the consequent ciffusion of know- ledge. It is to that diffusion of general know- ledge to which, next to its liberty and its con- stitution, that this country owes its proud pre- eminence in arms, in arts, and in every discovery that can promote the comfort and convenience of man. Look upon the surrounding nations, bur- dened with imposts and taxes as this nation is— can one of them be mentioned in which the conveniences necessary to the poor man's happi- ness can be purchased at an easier rate? The la- bours of the man of study in his closet are even- tually turned to the advantage of the community by the artizan, and the sublime discoveries and improvements in the sciences are rendered appli- cable to the comforts of social life. A certain degree of luxury in a state, so far, therefore, from being pernicious, as was formerly asserted, is not oRly necessary, but highly advantageous to it. It is the vital, the exhilarating spark, which animates and vivifies the whole system of com- merce and principle of industry. This cannot be better illustrated than by referring to the use to which the science of chemistry has been ap- plied ; a science, at the first glance, not supposed capable of producing the immense advantages that have resulted from it. I know that there have been men, men who arrogated to them- selves the proud character of Statesmen, who maintained the absurd and tyrannical position, that Governments were not benefited by the extension of knowledge, and that the ignorance of a people was the best security for their obe- dience. But," I trust, that it is not in this country that maxims so base and degrad- ing will find countenance of toleration. Tt cannot be denied, but that the cupidity and malignity of some natures will endeavour to break through all the mounds that can be raised against them; and that siich men will seek to arm those that have nothing, against those that possess every thing ; but it is in this diffusion of knowledge, and principally of that knowledge which embraces the principles and ends of Government, that the rulers of any coun- try may draw the best antidote against the poison of such doctrines.— His Lordship then proceeded to illustrate this principle, and concluded by ob- serving, that " it waj on the' obedience of hearts, resulting from conviction, that the Mo- narch and the Government would find their best Security."

At our Quarter Sessions, two very young women were tried for a felony, against whom, a boy ( brother of one of them, and an ac- complice) was admitted evidence; they Were both found guilty, and ordered to be trans- ported for seven years. A woman, said to be? seventy years of age, convicted of receiving the property stolen by the above- mentioned prisoners, was sentenced to fourteen- years trans- portation ; in respect of which last mentioned sentence, the Court could not exercise any dis- cretion, the Same being pursuant to the direc- tions of an Act of Parliament. Christian Crew, a Prussian, who had been convicted at the lasl Sessions, on an indictment for uttering counter- feit coin, and sentenced to six months imprison- ment, having obtained his Majesty's pardon, was received as e\ idefice against John Carrol, a person tried and convicted 011 the same indict- ment at the present Sessions; and who, appearing 011 the trial to have been the chief indicator of the offence, and evidently to have misled the foreigner, was sentenced ( according to the statute) to- six months imprisonment, and to find sureties for his good behaviour for six months more. James Garner, a pauper in our workhouse, and who had nick- named him- self Bonaparte, was very deservedly ordered twelve months imprisonment in the Ilalsted Bridewell, for grossly assaulting the governor of the said workhouse, and other flagrant acts of misbehaviour. Several others for smaller offences received sentences of imprisonment. The taking down Widford Bridge, was re- commended, and the erection of a new bridge, m some other place proposed, of which the Court took time to consider. The tenants having quitted the houses, and the old materials thereof, which stand in the way of our intended House of Correction, being all disposed of by auction, we understand the new fabric is to be forwarded and completed with all convenient expedition. One of the Magistrates moved, and it was seconded, that the remarks made by Baron Hotham to the Grand Jury, at the last Assizes, on the necessity of impressing the chief and parish constables with a due regard to the per- formance of thfet part of their office which re- lates to the making of proper presentments, and - en& reirrfjr— dire ertk- r in public houses, should be strongly recommended by the Magistrates, and the attention ot those officers directed to these important points. At the Quarter Sessions, held at Bury on Mon- day last, was tried a traverse to the presentment of a Magistrate against the Surveyors of Stan- stead, for neglecting to keep in repair a road lead- ing from that parish to Shimpling; when, after a long hearing, and the examination of a great number of witnesses, a verdict of Not Guilty was given for the defendants; it appearing that the said roads were in a progressive state of re- paration previous to the presentment being pre- ferred. In consequence of the Lord Lieutenant's Let- ter, a meeting of- the Stoke next Clare Loyal Volunteers took place yesterday se'nnight, when nearly ninety of the old members enrolled them- selves again, and were joined by upwards of twenty new ones— since which they have con- tinued entering daily. On Sunday last the Lady of Lord Viscount Brome was safely delivered of a daughter, at the Marquis Cornwallis's, in Burlington- street London. The Rev. James Douglas, M. A. F. A. S. Chap- Iain in Ordinary to his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, and Rector of Middleton, in the county of Sussex, is instituted to the Vi< age of Kenton, in Suffolk, on the presentation of her Grace the Duchess Dowager of Chandos, and the Hon. John Henniker Major. On Sunday evening last, a barn filled with straw, belonging to Mr. James Ward, of Haugh- ley, was set 011 fire by lightning, and entirely consumed. On Saturday afternoon, whilst Mr. William Cornell, farmer, of Needham- slreet, in the parish of Gazely, was overlooking his work- men at plough in the field, a very severe tem- pest arose, when suddenly one of his ancles re- ceived a shock like a violent blow, and on call- ing his eyes downwards he saw the lightning playing 011 his shoe. His whole frame was so much affected, that he remained in a state of stupor some minutes ; on recovering from which, he perceived, at the distance of about 100 yards, that two of his best horses had also been struck by the lightning, one of which was totally dead, and the other in the most acute agonies, which it survived only a few minutes. A young man who had been ploughing with them received so violent a shock, that he continued very ill till ten o'clock the same night, but was much recovered next morning, and happily neither he nor Mr. Cornell have sustained any material injury.— The horses are valued at 70I. On the 21st instant Robert Gentry, servant in husbandry to Mr. William Wade, of Great Stambridge, Rochford Hundred, was convicted and paid the penalty and costs, for riding- in a cart loaded with harrows, & c. drawn by one horse, with a loose horse in harness before not having any reins, or any other person on foot to guide the horses. It is hoped this will operate as a caution to servants in Rochford Hundred, who are particularly addicted to this idle and dangerous habit. Mr. Stephens's History of the late War, which has just been published, has received the assist- ance of Lord Nelson, Lord Melville, Lord Hawkesbury, and other persons of undoubted authority. It is indeed no less valuable for its authenticity than for the eloquence of its style and the moderation of its political principles. On Sunday morning, the 17th wist about" half past seven o'clork, a fire broke out in a lodge or ont- house belonging to a cottage at Barton Mills,- from the carelessness of the wo- man residing therein throwing out her ashes, which almost instantly set fire to the lodge. The wind being very high, carried a part of the burn- ing thatch nearly half a furlong, and deposited it upon the thatch of a large barn belonging to Thomas Wenman Martin, Esq and set fire to it, which communicating to the buildings ad- joining, in a very few second-; a general con-, flagration ensued, by which means three cot- tages, three barns, one large cart- lodge, and granary over it, containing about twelve score of corn, various other out- houses, and two stacks of hay, were in much less than half an hour re- duced to ashes.— The impetuosity of the flames was so great, that although there were about fifty coombs of barley in sacks in one of the barns, and two waggons loaded with straw stand- ing near the barn, it was totally impossible to pre- serve them.— Happily no lives were lost.— The damage is supposed to_ atnoiinL. to full 10.00]. Lately was married, at Braintree, Mr. Tho. Messent, baker, at Great Bardfield, to Miss Hill, of Braintree. Tuesday se'nnight was married at Ipswich, R. Wiltshire, Esq. of New Bridge street, London; to Miss M. Bleaden, daughter of John Bleaden, Esq. of Stoke- Hall. Lately was married Mr. Geo. Arnold, of Rochford, to Miss Allen, of the same place. Yesterday se'nnight was married, at Hazeleigh, Mr. Hayward, grocer and draper, of Maldon, to Mrs. Trapps, daughter of Mrs. Shuttleworth, late of Purleigh Barns, in this county. Same day was married Mr. George Gar- rett, of the Angel Inn, to Miss Charlotte Threlfall, both of Woodbridge. Wednesday se'nnight died, aged 91, Mrs. Grimsey, widow of Mr. Grimsey, late of Bury. On Saturday last died Mrs. Oliver, wife of William Oliver, Esq. Chief Magistrate of Sud bury, after a long and painful illness, which she bore with great resignation. On Sunday last died, after a long affliction, much respected, aged id, Mr. Samuel Fyson, farmer, of Ixworth. Same day died, in the 63th year of his age, Mr. Richard Lewin, sen. farmer, of Lever- ington Same day died, at Copdock, Mr. George Kerridge, jun. china and glass merchant, of Ipswich. Same day died, at his house in Picca- dilly, Sir John Smith Burges, Bart, a Director of the East India. Company, ond lieutenant- CoIonel of the Third Regiment of East India Volunteers. He married the only daughter and heiress of the late Ynyz Burges, Esq. of East Ham, in this county- and, took - the name oT Burges in addition to that of Smith. Dying without issue, the title becomes extinct. On Saturday last died Mrs. Moore, relict of the late Mr. James Moore, of Panfield ; she was universally beloved in life, and as universally re- gretted in death ; she was a devout Christian, ; i faithful wife, an affectionate mother, a humane benefactress to the poor, and a kind and valuable friend to all those who were connected with her. Lately died Mrs. Jay, of Purleigh. MARK- LANE. APRIL 27. We had little or nothing fresh up on Friday or Monday last, and in consequence rather a brisker sale, and in some particulars an advanced price. Superfine white wheat sold as high as 62. or 63s. per quarter for select samples— red wheat to 58s. for the best— barley and oats to r$ s.— malt to 46s. This morning there was a considerable arrival from Sufiolk, and a general idea prevailing thr. t it will be followed speedily by large suppli, s from Norfolk and the more distant ports, thij market entirely lost the briskness of Monday, and the prices of that day are no long T to b « ; realized for any thing, although there" has scarcely been business enough effected to esta- blish a new list. The aspect quit-- drooping at the close. BANKRUPTS. Saturday, April 23.— Joseph Marriott Waller and Michael waller, of Birstall, Yorkshire, merchants.— William Henry Hitchener, of Bird- in- hand- court, Chcapside, warehouseman.— Robert Chapman, of Old Bethlem, London, chip and straw hat manufacturer. Tutsday, April 26.— John Hudson, of Devonshire- square, merchant.— Jnmcs Harris, of Exeter, coach- maker. — Joseph Jones, of Wood- street, Cheapside, Leghorn hat warehouseman.— John Agnew, of Gros- venor- square, banker.— John Donald, of Alderman- bury, warehouseman.— William Chater, of Charles- street, Long- acre, coach- spring- maker.— Samuel Ja cobs, of Tabernacle Walk, Finsbury- square, dealer. Friday's post, by Express LONDON THURSDAY, APRIL 28. A French mail arrived yesterday. It will be seen by the following communication, that the continuiance of peace is considered no longer doubtful by the best informed politicians of ( jfe French capital. mm Paris, April 23.— The question of Peace or War is here so far at rest, that not a voice is heard but in' favour of the former. Even the Politicians of the Palais'Royal have ceased from their harangues, and their plans of aj^ scent upon England, all written in wine, Jra com- pletely dried up and forgotten.— But thW- l; the main question i* thus set aside, there isJnuch of speculation respecting the delays, which are at- tributed to Ministers on your side of tjjE water. O11 this subject there are many versio* afloat, but the que which 1 subjoin, without pledging myself for its accuracy, is that whjen has here t the greatest share of ciiculation and of credence. Bg^ The various differences respT? aing Malta, the ^ wape, and Egypt, this statement says, were 011 Uic eve of being very amicably adjusted, when Bie British Ministers, with a most laudable zeal, Rut forward the necessity of a Commercial Treaty • between the two* countries. On this subject Bo- f naparte, even in the opinion of bis most confi- dent advisers, is most impolitically obstinate. He could never be brought to see that England must llefthc best customer in the world to France, and vice versa; or that the French can never be brougll| j to rival the manufactures of Great Britain, unless they have them as objects of emu- lation before their eyes. He therefore refused every proposition 011 this head, and from this arose the first symptoms of animosity between the two Governments. Thedjscussion was prolonged on the other topics, whilst the main cause of jealousy remained in petto. The British Ministers, ! it is added, wishing to carry so essential a point, began to arm, and of course to menace the slen- der remains of the French Marine. These, however, were valueless in the eyes of Bonaparte, and he remained sternly fixed to his first deter- mination. In this case, the British Government found that they had gone so far, that it was difficult t » reeede, and recourse was had to the aid of mediation. Austria and Prussia, wishing to re- tain their station as calm observers, refused to jneddle with so ticklish an interference. Appli- cation was then made to the Court of Russia, and it is held to be not improbable that Alexander, educated as he has been in the lessons of Cathe- rine, who never refused a manifesto or a medi- ation, where she would not have lent a musquet or a rouble, will not refuse an inter- ference which will cut short all difficulties.— You will disarm of course, and the Consul will tranquilly proceed 011 his Northern Tour Such is the language- of the political circles of this capital.— Since writing the above, I have been assured, from well- ascertained authority, that not the smallest apprehension or idea of hostili- ties is entertained by the Cabinet of the Tuilleries." Yesterday all the Stocks experienced a rise of nearly one per cent.— the demands for money purchases in all the funds, were the largest that have been known for some months past. " The greatest alarm is still said to prevail in the Empire of China, in consequence of the sudden incursions of the rebel Tartars. The avowed ob- ject of the insurgents is to establish a different line of government. The number of inhabitants in Canton is computed at 1,000,000, and ten thousand troops are already provided with arms and accoutrements. The Indemnity lo his Sardinian Majesty, it is said, has at length been settled. Report says that it is to consist of the principality of Sienna, the Duchy of Orbitello, the Stato del Presidi, and the Maremma. The King of Etruria is to trceive in exchange the Duchy of Parma, and the Duchy of Placenza is to be united to the Italian Republic. His Sardinian Majesty, it is added, has obtained this indemnity through the interference of the Emperor of Russia. We some time since stated that the American Minister at Paris had received the most satisfac- tory assurance from the French Government with respect to the future conduct to be adopted at New Orleans. We now find that dispatches have been received in America from Mr. Livingston, in which lie informs his Government, " that in consequence of a diplomatic note presented by Jiini 011 the subject of the late irregular proceed- ings at New Orleans, he received assurances from the French Minister, that France would re- spect the rights of America; that she had re- ceived Louisiana from Spain, subject to such sti- pulations as are contained in the Treaties with that Power, and that she would wish lo cultivate with the Americans a spirit of harmony and good- will." The conduct of the Spanish Intendant, 111 shutting up the port of New Orleans, is strong- ly censured by Picliion, the French Envoy in America. Loussot, the Provisional Governor of Louisiana is arrived at the Havauuah, on his wav to his destination. The Dutch Papers contain letters from Milan, stating, that in consequence of an order from the First Consul and President Bonapartp, several persons who filled distinguished offices in the Ita- lian Republic have been arrested. The real mo- tives of this order are not known— but the intel- ligence, itis said, is certain. It appears by accounts from Semlin, that the firmness of the new Pacha has reduced the rebel- lious Janissaries of Belgrade to the most com- plete submission. It is also stated, that the Turkish Government seems resolutely bent on the subjugation of Passwan Oglou, and on pre- venting that empire from being any longer dis- turbed by the establishment of her rebellious ser- vants in independence. A report has reached Vienna, that an alarming infurrcction had broken out in Constantinople, and that that city was in the greatest confusion. The Plymouth letters of Tuesday state, that the relaxation in some of the departments there jtill continues. iPUnUap's post continued,. Accounts from St. Comings state, that on the 19th of February, the Negroes made a fierce at- tack on the Cape, and after a loug contest were repulsed. They took Fort Belair, and had they known how to work the guns, would have bat- tered the town to pieces. Some reinforcements liad arrived. A letter from Canton, by the Alnwick Castle, states, that great rejoicings took place at Pekin, on the 2d of December, by the express com- mand of the Emperor, in consequence of a de- cisive victory having been obtained by the Em- peror's troops over those of the rebels, in the district of Kio, on the 14th of November. A lady of much celebrity in the beau violide, lias quitted Dublin abruptly, in consequence of having been detected in a forgery to a consi- derable amount. One of the greatest curiosities in the kingdom is in the garden of the Duke of Dorset, at Knowle: a Silver Fir Tree, one hundred and fifteen feet in height, upwards of a hundred years old, and still in full health and vigour. The peculiarities of the late Duke of Bridge- water's manners and temper - are well known. One of his most favourite amusements, for many years of the latter part of Lib life, was cmoaking tobacco and drinking porter; and he would never go into any company unless he was permitted this enjoyment, which he would not forego even in the presence of ladies.— His Grace, a short time before his decease, made an offer of his in- vaiuable collection of books to Mr. Todd, the editor of Milton ; who declined accepting the munificent donation, being unwilling to deprive the successors of his Grace of a property which he knew they prized very highly.— The circum- stance coming to the knowledge of Lord Cower, his Ijordship, with characteristic liberality, re- quested Mr. T. to continue to use the collection as his own, and presented him with an annuity of 200I. The immense Bog of Allen, in Ireland, which contains more than 100,000 acres, is in a fair of being completely drained, by a spacious canal that is now cutting through its centre. The beautiful statues and antiques, which for- merly stood, as it were, concealed, at least un- known and unseen, in the palace of Michaelof, at Petersburgh, have lately been removed to the Taurian Palace, where, the present Emperor intends to reside in Spring and Autumn. It is now necessary, in order to be accom- plished, that every Lady must be musical, Many have made rapid advances on the tam- bourine, in order to shew a fine shape in all the attitudes of modern modesty; and some even threaten to practise on the trumpet, and the long drum. A duel was fought near Vauxhall, 011 Wednes- day morning, at live o'clock, between Captain C———, in the merchant service, and Captain G , of the navy. They fired two shots each. Captain G. was severely wounded in the left breast, and Mr. C. in the shoulder. The seconds then interfered, and a reconciliation took place. The balls have since been extract- ed, and the Gentlemen are both in a fair way of recovery. A native of the county of Antrim, named named Patrick Patride, who has attained the ioid year of his age, is now in London, on his annual visit as a dealer in linen. This man has never experienced a day's illness; and such are his strength and activity, that he can now walk • forty miles a day; his memory is as retentive, His sight is as good, and his sensations are as acute and animated, as at any period of his life. On the 7th inst. a most dreadful fire broke out in the upper part of the house of a brewer, at Lierop, near Helmond, in Holland. The brewer, his servant, and a neighbour, had not left the house when the roof fell in, and hemmed them in on every side. In a state of desperation they ran to the cellar, where, after ineffectually struggling to get out, they were all burnt to death. Another person in the house at the, same time made his escape, after being moi shockingly burnt. All the furniture, n oxen, and a great quantity of grain, were consumed. Wednesday presented the very extraordinary circumstance of a vessel wrecked, from stress of weather, in the Thames, between Blackfriars Bridge and the Temple Gardens. It \ va large coal barge, with two men on board, vast number of skiffs went off to her assistance, but they could only save the two men; the vessel went down in a few minutes after. It hardly possible to parallel an instance in this part of the River, of so formidable an hurri- cane as that by which the Thames was Wednesday agitated. It wm ev* » i » considered- act of daring intrepidity on the part of those who ventured out in boats for the purpose rescuing those who were in the barge. The following extraordinary discovery was lately made in the neighbourhood of Strasburgh — A person who had purchased the remnant a wood, that esaped the ravages of a Prussian army, which had been encamped there during the last war, sent people to cut down some of the oldest oak trees, in order to convert them into fuel. The first which they attempted, be- ing a mere shell, was soon cut down, and in the hollow of it was found the skeleton of a man, from which all the flesh had fallen away. There was also found ico Louis d'ors, in a rotten purse, and from the remnants of clothes, antl of a hat th. it lay near the body, it is supposed to have been that of a Prussian Officer, who had in the night time climbed up the tree, and accidentally fallen into the hollow, from which he was unable to extricate himself. I11 a Glasgow newspaper is an advertisement for an Executioner which says, " the bad cha- racter of the person who last held the office having brought upon il a degree of discredit which it by 110 means deserves, the Magistrates are determined to acccpt of none but a sober, well- behaved man." Some days since, in digging for the founda- tion of a house in the new buildings, to be called Skinner - street ( Snow- hill), eleven guineas, and six half guineas, of the reigns of Charles II. James II. and William III. a Louis d'or of Louis Illth, a moidore, twenty- four shillings of Charles Ist. and two of James I. were found by the workmen. At the Old Bailey on Thursday, Thomas Smith and William Jones wore tried and found guilty upon the capital charge of burglariously breaking and entering the dwelling- house of James Fontaine, and stealing therein a metal can- dlestick. John Chambers was indicted capitally, for burglariously breaking into the dwelling- house of Williams Williams, and stealing twelve pair of Ladies cotton stockings. It appeared, that the prisoner went into the shop and took the goods; the burglary, however, not being made out, the Jury pronounced him Guilty of stealing to the alue of 39s. Elizabeth Ann Hunt was found guilty upon the capital charge of stealing Bank- notes and cash to the amount of fifty- throe pounds three shillings, the property of Salmon Handheld, in his dwelling- house, in the day- time of the 4lh * April. Yesterday morning Capt. Macnamara was re- moved from Blake's Hotel, in order to take hi: trial at the Old Bailey Sessions. He went ii his brother's coach, which, on account of the weak state of his body, drove very slowly to Mr. Kirby's house. At one o'clock the Cap- tain appeared in Court, attended by a Medical gentleman and a great number of respectable friends ; and being unable to stand, a chair. was provided for him at the bar. The Clerk of the Ar- raigns read over the charge, which was founded 011 the Coroner's Inquest, of Manslaughter; and which the Captain was charged with firing off a pistol, loaded with ball, which caused the death of Colonel Robert Montgomery. To this charge the Captain pleaded Not Guilty. Mr. Knapp opened the case for the prose- cution :— lie stated that the simple question for the Jury to / was, whether the deceased received his death from the hand of. the prisoner, in consequence of a rencon- tre on Primrose- hill. If they found that fact, tlie law he believed was not liable to any doubt, but clear and explicit. He described the prisoner as a gentle- man of rank and high respectability, famed for the courage and magnanimity which lie has invariably dis- played in the service of his country, and every other quality than can do honour to a Man and a Gentleman. The deceased was a man equally honoured and es- teemed, and possessed of the affections of an extcnsiv< and respectable connection. Mr. Knapp having stated the progress and effect of the duel, concluded by say- ing, tnat the prosecutor had no wish as to the event of the trial, but to acquit himself of the duty to his deceased relative and to the Public. If, in conse- quence of this prosecution, a stop or a check should be put to such fatal transactions, this prosecution would be attended with the best effects that had re- sulted from any trial that had taken place before Jury of the Country. W. and S. Sloanc and C. Smith, Esqrs. deposed as to the origin of the dispute, exactly as it has been before related, viz. that the Colonel's dog being ti the tight, he threatened to knock the Cap- tain's down, unless he called him off; to which tlie Captain replied, he must knock him down after- wards;— the subsequent conversation produced the challenge, but it did not appear in evidence from which partly it originated. The fact of the Colonel's death being proved, Capt. Macnamara read, in a low lone of voice, his defence, which stated that he was consoled that his character had been delivered by the verdict of the Grand Jury from the most horrid imputation : it then stated that the origin of the difference was insignificant, and the dcfiance alone which produced the fatal com- sequences. The words used by the Colonel have been considered by Criminal Courts as sufficient to support an indictment for a challenge : and an Officer, how- ever desirous to avoid a quarrel, cannot refuse derstand what the Law must interpret as a defiance.— ' I could well have overlooked the defiance, lie con- fumed, if the world would have overlooked it also but had the insult been submitted to, it would have passed from mouth to mouth, been exaggerated at every repetition, and my honour would have been lost. Gentlemen, I am a Captain in the British Navy. My character you can only hear from others; but to maintain my character in that station, I must lie respected. When called upon to lead others into honourable danger, I must not be supposed to be a man who had sought safety by submitting to. what custom has taught others to consider as a disgrace. I am not presuming to urge any thing against the laws of God, or of this Land. I know that, in the eye of religion and reason, obedience to the Law, though against the general feelings of the world, is the first duty, and ought to be the rule of action : but, in put ting a construction upon my motives, so as to ascer- tain the quality of my actions, you will make allow- ances for my situation. It is impossible to define ii terms the proper feelings of a gentleman, but theii existence have supported this happy country many ages, and she might perish if they were lost." Among the persons called to the prisoner's diame- ter were, Lords Hood, Hotham, Nelson, and Minto, Sirs Hyde Parker, and T. Trowbridge, General Churchhill, and several Captains of the Navy, all of whom coincided in representing him as a man of the most amiable manners, of great moderation and mild- ness of temper, and more likely to make up a dis- pute, than provoke or aggravate one. Mr. Justice Heath observed to the Jury, that their duty in this case was extremely obvious. Had the prisoner been indicted for murder, then it might be an Unpleasant task. But, by the Coroner's Inquest, lie had been acquitted as to' the charge of murder, but had been found guilty of manslaughter, which he indeed confessed, in his own defence- fortunate that they had not to examine the extent of the provocation given. They might in that case have a painful duty to perform. A great deal had been said respecting the provocation given. It ap- peared, however, that some time had elapsed while the dispute was going forward, and a considerable • time had intervened before the parties had proceeded to terminate the quarrel. Their verdict would, no doubt, be such as would tend to prevent as much as possible such quarrels for the future. All the evi- dence for the prisoner went to his character; but, however high and respectable that was, it could only be of advantage ill doubtful eases, and ought not to influence them as far as regarded facts. They were to consider whether the deceased had not fallen by the hands of the prisoner, and give their vcrdi accordingly. The Jury, having retired about 20 minutes, turned a verdict of— Not Guilty.— Captain M. then bowed respectfully to the Court and retired. ANECDOTES ALEXANDER I. Justicc and clemency are in all cases the fairest and firmesj pillars of the throne; and the Prince, who, likl- Alexander the First, acts uniformly upon this principle, may rest securely upon the affections of his people. The short period of his administration has been distinguished already by the noblest actions; as a proof of which we have only to peruse his excellent edicts, which are so full of humanity, affability, clemency, and justice; and especially his ordinance by which he has granted an unlimited freedom from informers and spies. Let his imperial letter be attentively perused, hicli he wrote lately to one of his grandees, and which is one of the fairest jewels of his crown. In what humane and paternal lan- guage does he there express himself on the de- gradation and slavish misery under which the Russian peasantry for the most part groan ! He detests the idea of human creatures being bought and sold in the manner of cattle; and is engag- ed seriously in making such arrangements a> set bounds to such abuses for the future. To himself, besides the occupation of govern- ment, he allows so few pleasures or amusements, that the Emperor might be taken for a private person. Of the simplest appearance, and gene' rally clad in the strictest stil « of military uniform, he is seen almost every day on the parade, and receives the petitions of suppliants himself, or gives orders to his adjutant for that purpose. With the greatest affability, and a pleasing smile, lie salutes every one that comes in his way, and gives audience to each of them him- self. lie then takes an airing on horseback, attended only by a single servant; and when he meets with any of those persons \ vhom he for- merly knew when Grand Duke, he enters imme- diately into familiar conversation, and talks of past circumstances in the most engaging man- ner. Even those who are entire strangers to liiin, however disagreeable their subjects of con- versation, and at times highly improper and 1 pertinent, are frequently heard by him with the utmost composure, of which the two follow- " ng are striking examples. A young woman of German extraction, wait- ed once for tlie Emperor on the stairs, by which lie was accustomed to go down to the parade. When tho Monarch appeared, she met him on the steps with these words in her mouth— Please your Majesty, I have something to say to you." " What is it?" demanded the Em- peror, and remained standing, with all his atten- dants. " I wish to be married, but I have no fortune; if you would graciously give me a dowry—" '.' Aii, my girl," answered the Mo- narch, " were I to give dowries to all the young women in Petersburgh, where do you think I shall find money?" The girl, however, by his order, received a present of fifty roubles. O11 another occasion, at the very moment when the Emperor had given the word of com- mand, and the guard 011 the parade was just on the point of paying him the usual military- honours, a fellow approached him with ragged garments, with his hair in disorder, and a look of wildness, and gavfe him a slap on the shoulder. The Monarch, who was standing at that time with his face opposite to the military front; turn- ed round immediately, and, beholding the ragga- muflin started at the sight, and then asked him, with a look of astonishment, what he wanted. I have something to say to you, Alexander Paulowitz," answered the stranger, in the Russian language. " Say 011 then," said the Emperor, with a smile of encouragement, and laying his hands upon the vagabond's shoulders. A long solemn pause followed: the military guard stood still; and nobody ventured by word or motion to disturb the Emperor in this singular inter- view. The Grand Duke Constantine alone, whose attention had been cxcited by this un- usual stoppage, advanced somewhat nearer to liis brother. The stranger now related that he had been a Captain in the Russian service, and liad been present at the campaigns both in Italy and Switzerland; but that he hail been perse- cuted by his commanding officer, and so misrepre- sented to Suwarrow, that the latter had turned him out of the army. Without money, and without friends, in a foreign counlry, he had afterwards served as a private soldier in the Russian army; and being much wounded and mangled at Zurich, ( and he here pulled his rags asunder, and shewed several gun- shot wounds) he had closed his campaign in a French prison. He had now begged all the way to Petersburgh, to apply to the Emperor himself for justice, and to beg him to enquire into the reason of such a shameful degradation from his post. The Emperor heard him to the ^ pd with patience; and then asked, in a significant tone, if there was no exaggeration in the story he had told?" Let me die tinder the knout, ( said the officer) if I shall be found lo have uttered one word of falsehood!" The Emperor then beckoned to his brother, and charged liinj to conduct the stranger to the palace, while he turned about to the expecting crowd The commanding officer, who had be- haved so shamefully, though of a good family, and a prince in rank, was reprimanded very severely; while the brave warrior, whom he had unjustly persecuted, was reinstated in his former post, and had besides a considerable present from the Emperor. Every thing that savours of harshness or cruelly is abhorrent to the temper of this ami- able monarch: as an evidence of which we netd only mention the well- known story of the torture inflicted on a poor Russian, who had fallen under the suspicion of wilfully setting fire to buildings. No sooner was the good- natured Emperor in- formed, that this poor wretch had, upon mere suspicion, been put to the rack in the most in* human manner; that he had given up the ghost in the midst of torments, and asserted his inno- cence with his last breath, than he sent imme- diately an oflicer to Casan, in order to investi- gate the matter to the bottom; and published at the same time that remarkable edict, in con- sequence, of which the term lortureis for. ever blotted out frwn the legal language of Russia, A writer of great knowledge and exi serves " that at the spring and fall the Mortality is generally greater than in th< seasons of the year" and with great truth many are also sent to their long home by early in- discretions which materially affect them at these seasons, cither fruid injudicious treatment, or by not hrving recourse in due time to Medicine. It is - however a pleasing consolation to the afflicted, to rtfleqj that a Medicine of the fint character is now extant, and which, if applied, will effectually relieve them, and restore them^ again to the blissful enjoyment of health and happiness.
