Letter from Lord Jjike to the Governor- General, dated Head- Quarters, Camp before Bhurtpore, 9tk March, 1805. MY LORD, I have the satisfaction to transmit, for your Lordship's information, the copy of a dispatch from Major- General Smith, announcing his com- plete success in an attack on Ameer Khan's force near the town of Ufzulghur, on the 2d instant. The indefatigable perseverance of Major- General Smith, in his pursuit of the enemy since he first, crossed the Jumna, entitles that officer to my best thanks and approbation; and his mode of con- ducting the attack on the 2d instant, under cir- cumstances of peculiar difficulty, and after a very long march, must ever reflect on him the highest credit. The cavalry appear, on this service, to bare maintained, in an eminent degree, that high character for intrepidity and discipline, which they have so successfully displayed on every foraer occasion; and the conduct of both officers and men has been represented to me, by Major- General Smith, as highly meritorious. Your Lord- ship will perceive, with much satisfaction, that our loss ua th: » occasion has not been heavy, and that tile wouudtxl officers are likely to do well. I have the honour to be, & c. LAKE. Return ttf casualties in the action near Ufzu/ ghur, Msretl, 1S05.— Total— 5 Rank and Pile killed; 1 Major, 2 Captains, 1 Lieutenant, 5 Serjeants, 1 Trum- peter, and 25 Rank and File, wounded. In the fetter of the Governor- General and Council, transmitting the foregoing accounts, is the following paragraph :— " On the 24th February the Commander in Chief took np a new position on the north- east side of Bhurtpore; and his Excellency is prepared to re- commence operations against that place as soon as he shall have received supplies of stores and ammunition, which are advancing towards the army from the stations within the Company's pro- vinces at which they had been collected. The Commander in Chief expresses a confident hope of obtaining possession of Bhurtpore, before the conclusion of the season for active military ope rations in that quarter of India. 1' ( The Gazette contains an account of the capture of the Blanche frigate, Captain Mudge, bv a squadron of French ships of war; and the taking of Le Faune, one of the above French squadron, by the Camilla mid Goliath.] LONDON, August £ 7. Paris Papers to the 18th inst. have been received, which add considerable strength to the probability of an approaching rupture 011 the Continent. As long as it was in the power of Bonaparte to dis- semble on this unwelcome prospect, he used every art to persuade both the people of France, and the other nations on the Continent, that he had nothing to fear, and the English nothing to hope, from the great Powcr# of Europe. When he begins, therefore, to complain of the influence of Great- Britain on the Continent, and to revile it, we may be assured that lie finds it out of his powpr to dissemble any longer; and that Lj. uiow sees mi probability of diverting the effects ot' the indignation of all his neighbours.—- The circum- stance of principal importance is an expression used with regard to Austria, whose co- operation in any eifectual coalition against France is so es- sential. In a note inserted 111 the Moniteur, on an account which appeared in the English papers, of the detention of the American ships, beside tlie wonted declamation 011 the maritime ascendancy, or tyranny, as Bonaparte calls it, of this country, there are various observations 011 the influence which she has acquired on the Continent; and among these it is asserted, that " she is precipi- tating Austria into a war, by inducing her to make in the Tyrol and in Italy, armaments which cannot be considered but as a commencement of hos- tilities." A letter from Naples, dated August 3, state* as follows:—" O11 Friday the 2( ith of July, there was an earthquake in the greatest part of this kingdom, which was so violent that since that of Calabria, there has been none attended with similar devasta- tion. In the city of Naples 800 houses have be- come uninhabitable, and upwards of 4000 are much damaged; 40 churches have been shaken to their very foundations. The number of persons who have perished by the fall of the buildings, is not very great in this capital, but in some inland towns, which are entirely destroyed, the inhabit- ants have nearly all lost their lives. The small town of Isernia, in the county of Molese, is no- thing but a Ilea]) of ruins, and upwards of 1500 persons have perished there. At Campo- Basso, and at Bajatto, in the same province, most of the inhabitants were destroyed. Aveliuo, Montesar- Cliio, Benevento, and Aversa, have suffered amaz- ingly. At Santa Maria tie Capua, a whole com- pany of cavalry wore buried under the ruins of their barracks. At Caserta the upper stories of the houses tumbled down, and the line palace is so much damaged, that it is feared it cannot stand. — The letters from Puglia and Calabria state, that those provinces have only experienced a slight shock. Since the 26th of July Naples presents a very unusual, and indeed a dreadful spectacle. All tint inhabitants remain b « th night and day without their houses, in the plains and roads near the city. They have, during that time, slept in carriages or 011 the bare ground. The general distress has risen to the highest pitch; and it is certain, that if the earthquake had been followed by some more shocks, the whole city of Naples would have been destroyed.— In the midst of the general distraction which has taken place ever since that moment, the greatest public order has been preserved; thanks to the vigilance and courage of the Duke of Ascoli, Chief Intendant of the General Police. The Lazzaroni have not com- mitted a single robbery or murder." New- York Papers of the 20th ult. contain a translation of the new constitution of Ilayti. This most curious document is comprised in above 100 articles. The supreme command is given to Dessalines, who is called Emperor I. & c. but the Government is not hereditary. Slavery is abo- lished for ever— no particular religion is acknow- ledged by the State— and the colours of the Empire arc appropriately declared to be black and red. The determination of the Blacks to destroy all the towns, in case of an attack from abroad, is made an article of the Constitution as follows: —" At the first firing of the alarm gun, the cities will disappear, and the nation rise !* Saturday afternoon dispatches were received at the Admiralty from Lord Keith, transmitted to his Ixirdship by Rear - Admiral Douglas, who com- mands the division cruising before Boulogne. They were brought to Dover late 011 Friday night by the Spv sloop of war, Captain Bushby, and are stated to contain intelligence, that a great number of the enemy's flotilla had got out of the harbour of Bou- injury that might be done to the standing crops, from the 1st to the 14th of September next. The expence of the splendid ffite given by the Marquis of Buckingham at Stowe, amounted, it is said, to ,£. 20,000. There are nearly as many large Capitals in the present Lottery ( to begin in September), as have been - usually given to Lotteries of more than double the number of Tickets; and the money allotted to a portion of the Blanks, together with the Twenty Pound Prizes, have reduced the risk to little more than two actualBlanks to a Prize. A clergyman, a native of Caermarthenshire, has taught, gratuitously, Sunday schools in eight different counties, in nearly 30 parish churches, in 14 market towns, and in numbers of chapels and private houses, in South and North Wales; catechising the scholars, at the same time, in the great doctrines of Christianity, and in the way to present and eternal happiness. Eating the leaves of Boliea tea is stated to have effected several cures in cases of dropsy, in the course of three or four days. About two large tea- cups full of tea are infused in about a quart of water, and during the day the decoction is to be drank, and the leaves eaten at short intervals. On Monday se'nnight, ten men being at vvo/ k in one of the Silkstone coal- pits, a dreadful ex- plosion took place, owing to tli « fire- damp, when six of them lost their lives. We are sorry to learn four of them have left large families. MANOR ot' DESBOROUGH. logne" into the Bay, with troops 0.11 board. The VfOTICE is hereby given, That all unqualified • " ' , FI, E I - L^ l PEI^ ons who shall be found trespassing within whole of our force in the Downs, and along the opposite lines of the coast, are on the alert, and ready to inflict upon the enemy the chastisement which his temerity deserves, should a serious at- tempt at invasion be made. Government was occupied the whole of last week, and is still employed, in taking up a great number of transports. They are probably in- tended for the conveyance of Russian troops to the Mediterranean, or to any other point where their services may be required; and we learn that a Russian squadron of ten sail of the line is shortly expected to co- operate with us in the North Seas. The transports are to rendezvous at the Nore. The Gazette of Saturday contains the official letters of Lord Lake to the Governor- General India, detailing the particulars of the different assaults on Bhurtpore, which place still holds out; and it is reported that, in the last assault, a consi- derable slaughter was made of our troops.— It is singular with what concern we look upon the loss of British soldiers in India, when the public is so much dejected and dismayed by any reverse in Europe. But it is necessary, if the war is to be carried 011 in India, that our force must be re- cruited ; and it is no pleasant thing at this moment to be obliged to ship armies to India, when the object of sending them is so little relished by the country at large, and the extension of our power in India has been so often and so formally protested against as impolitic, by both branches of the Le- gislature. Death of the Duke of Gloucester.— On Sunday niglit died, about eleven o'clock, his Royal High- ness Prince William Henry, Duke of Gloucester and Edinburgh in Great- Britain, Earl of Con- naught in Ireland, & c. Knight of the Garter, Sen. Field- Marshal of his Majesty's forces, and Colonel of the first regiment of Foot Guards, Chancellor of the University of Dublin, Ranger and Keeper of Cranbourne Chase, Ranger of Hampton- Court Park, and Warden and Keeper of the New Forest, Hampshire. His Roval Highness was born on the 25th of November, 1743, and was created a Duke and Earl by Patent., 011 the 17th November, 1704. lie was married 011 the 6th of September, 1766, to Maria Countess Dowager of Waldegrave, and daughter of the Hon. Sir Robert Walpole, K. B. by whom he had three children, viz. Sophia Ma- tilda, born May 29, 1773; Carolina Augusta Maria, born June 24, 1774, and died March 14, 1775; and William Frederick, born at Rome, January 15, 1776, a Lieutenant- General in the army, aud Colonel of the 6th regiment of Foot, llis Royal Highness received the Sacrament in the morning, which was administered to him by the llev. Dr. Duval. Yesterday at one o'clock the Physicians attended to examine the body of the late Duke of Glou- cester, when it was ascertained, that, ill addition, to the stone in the bladder, his Highness had been affected by a consumption of the liver, and a general relaxation of the intestines. He was also subject to ha; morrhoides, which, during the last month, had become extremely troublesome.— Or- ders were yesterday morning transmitted to pre- pare the urn, in which his entrails will to- morrow morning be deposited. The urn is to be of strong oak, cased with lead, and covered with crimson velvet. It is to have silver double gilt handles, to correspond with the coffin, which is ordered- to be prepared with all dispatch. The body will be in- closed in the vault of Henry the Seventh's Chapel, in Westminster- Abbey, and is to be placed on the right side of the coffin of his Royal Highness's late brother the Duke of Cumberland; and it is expected that the interment will take place' 011 Saturday week. Sunday night, at twelve o'clock, Mr. Vincent, the Duke of Gloucester's Secretary, set off express to Weymouth with the melancholy tidings to his Majesty of the death of his Royal Brother. I11 consequence of the decease of his Royal Iliglmess the Duke of Gloucester, every place of public amusement has been shut up. The follow- ing is the copy of a letter sent yesterday from the Lord Chamberlain's Office, to the Managers of the Summer Theatres:— " Six, " In consequence of the death of his Royal High- ness the Duke of Gloucester, I have received the Lord Chancellor's commands to desire that all entertain- ments at your Theatre be stopped till after the funeral of his Royal Highness.

The Gazette also contains a notice that his Ma-, jesl y does not require the officers of the army, lleei, or marines, to wear any other mourning on the present melancholy occasion than a black crape round their left arm, with their uniforms. LONDON, August 29. - The following Bulletin was received at Lloyd's oil Tuesday, from the Admiralty:— " ADMI RAITY- OFFICE, August 21. " A letter from Admiral Cornwallis, dated the 22d instant, states, that on the preceding evening the Brest fleet, consisting of 21 line- of- battle ships and four frigates, appeared outside of the harbour. The Ad- miral anchored his fleet off the Black Rocks, and in the morning endeavoured to bring the enemy, who were under weigh, to action; but when their head- most" ship was within gun- shot, she fired a broadside and tacked, the rest doing the same, and took up tlicir anchorage between the points at the entrance of Brest. An attempt was made to cut off the stern- mo.-.: ships; but a heavy fire of shot and shells from the batteries prevented its success." Letters from Plymouth and Torbay, contain some further interesting particulars respecting the la'e demonstration of the French fleet in Brest. The Barfieur, of 98 guns, fl otn the Channel fleet, arrived at Plymouth on Tuesday, with a few men who were wounded in t!. - partial action which took place. It ' appears, that the Cajsar engaged for a short time the French Admiral's ship in a very gallant stile, and shot away her mizen top- mast, together with that of a frigate. The Cmsar hail three men killed and seven wounded. The. loss of the enemy was probably much greater. The Barfleur harl one man killed. A French ship, bearing a Rear- Admiral's flag, was very nearly cut off by the Ville de Paris, Foudroyant, and Ctesar; the Frenchman, however, unfortunately succeeded in escaping, and, together with his companions, ran away, covered with glory! Yesterday dispatches were received at the Ad- miralty from Admiral Cornwallis, giving an ac- count'of a very gallant action fought by the Phrcnix frigate, of 36 guns, Captain Baker, with a French frigate, called La Didon, which she cap- tured after a severe contest of three hours. The intelligence was made known to the mercantile interest by the following bulletin, posted at Lloyd's:— " ADMIRALTY- OFFICE, August 28. *' His Majesty's ship Dragon, which joined the fleet under Admiral ' Corn allis on the 23d inst. reports, that on the 13th, off" Cape Ortegal, she had fallen in with his ivlaies: v's ship Phoenix, of 36 guns. Captain Baker, having in tow the French frigate Didon, of 41 guns, and 300 men, which she had captured on the 10th. after a scVere action of three hours, in lat! 43. 15. N. long. 12. 14. W. " On the 1- 4th a large fleet of the enemy was seen u) the N. F.. quarter, having their heads to the North- war- and Westward, a t": < ite from which came near ei. j-. ' h to the Dragon, to make out what she was, and speaking a Danish ship, and making several signals, r!•• » i'ued toherown fleet, which hauled iti wirid, and w.; s not in sight the next morning." The Didon is one of the finest and largest fri- gates the French navy ever possessed. She. sailed from L'Orient to Martinique in 26 . days, with intelligence of Lord Nelson having. passed . the Straits; and on the day the combined fleets en- tered Ferrol, she was dispatched from that port to obtain information respecting the movements of our fleets. The capture of a vessel so superior in number of men and guns, and in the weight of metal, does great honour to Captain Baker and his braie crew. The action was maintained with great obstinacy on t he part of the Didon, and she did not strike until she was totally dismasted. The slaughter was very great on board the enemy's ship, in which the number of killed and wounded is stated to be about 150. The killed and wounded in the Phoenix amount, according to some reports, to 32: wc hope, however, that there is a good deal of exaggeration in these reports. The large fleet which the Dragon saw on the 14th, to the N. E. of Cape Ortegal, and standing a N. W. course, was doubtless that of the com- j bincd squadrons of the enemy; and this intelli- gence lias very much shaken the confidence which j was generally placed in the opinion, that Ville- ] neuve intended to proceed to the Mediterranean. ' Various conjectures have been started: to raise the blockade of Brest— to make an attempt on Ireland— to go North about for the purpose of relieving tin: Dutch fleet, and several other pur- poses— have been attributed to the enemy. The information, however, brought by the Dragon, does not appear sufficient to enable us to form a decisive opinion respept. ing the object of the com- bined fleets. - Whatever movements are made by the fleet in the Texel, they appear rather to be intended for demonstrations, than purposes of real activity and enterprise. It is understood, from very good authority, that the military part of the expedition Ht the Helder is far from bring at present of a formidable character. A considerable mortality has prevailed among the troops embarked in the ships of war and transports, to arrest which it has, within these few days, been found necessary to land them. The number originally embarked, and which was supposed to have completed the army destined to the expedition from that port, amounted to no more than 13,000 infantry and 2000 cavalry. Of these no small proportion have been rendered unfit for active service, by the temporary incon- venience to which they have been subjected during the short time they continued embarked. To make up the deficiency, and to render the expedition adequate to the purposes for which it was intended, troops must be drawn from other quarters, or time must he allowed for the invalids to recover. The Batavian troops, both military and naval, to be engaged in it, have manifested their discontent : n a general and a decided manner, which the Commander in Chief has found it more conveni- ent tu connive at than repress. Bonaparte, is is stated, was still at Boulogne on the 18th ; and there is no doubt that he was there for the purpose of selecting and organizing the army which is to be employed on the German side, to co- opcrate with the army of Italy against the Austviatis. It is confidently asserted, that Russia, Austria Sweden, and other Powers, have entered into a positive arrangement respecting the measures which are to be adopted in relation to France; and it is further stated, that one essential point agreed upon by all parties, is, to demand an un- equivocal declaration from Prussia of the part she means to act in case of a war against Bonaparte, as her direct co- operation with him is deemed less disadvantageous to the general cause, than a neu- trality. Prussia is busied adding to the fortifications of Dantzic, and constructing new works on the Vistula. The plan of the war about to be commenced by Russia has been projected by the Grand Duke Constantine, who is to have a distinguished share in its direction. The veteran Von Buxhoevden, Governor of Lithuania, has been called . from Riga, to assist in the discussion of this plan, and to give it effect. The efficient army of the Emperor of Germany is now upwards of 300,000 men, in the best con- dition and discipline. All the useless exercise has been abolished; a concise, but much more ef- fectual manual has been introduced; all super- fluous baggage and servants are dismissed, and all officers below the rank of Captain are obliged to march. A system of dress, better suited to the fatigues of a campaign, has been established for the soldiers: they wear their hair short; and all those minutift, which added nothing to their strength, are dispensed with. Mr, Elsworth, the Messenger, who arrived on Friday from St. Petersburgh, is understood to have brought his Imperial Majesty's ratification of the Treaty of Alliance with this country.— The imme- diate accession of Austria to it may be expected, if it be true, as generally asserted, that the inso- lent tone and demandsi of France haye induced the Emperor of Germany to require the execution of a Treaty with Russia, by which the two Powers bind theij] selves to assist each other, under certain circumstances, with a stipulated force. Russia has complied with the requisition, and 60,000 Russians are said to be on their march to the Aus- trian frontiers. Letters by the Gottenburgh mails state, that a number of' English merchant- ships- at Cronstadt have, with the concurrence of the British Mini- ster, been put in requisition, for the purpose of transporting Russian troops. It is said, they will be carried to Stralsund, tind employed in con- junction with Swedish forces in the protection, of Pomerania, and for any future operations that may be undertaken. There is a letter in the French papers, dated Madrid, which, if it be correct, shews that there has been an action in the Mediterranean between the Spanish fleet from Carthageua and a British squadron, probably the one commanded by Sir 11. Bickerton, in which the former were defeated. It states, that information having beeti received by signal that some English ships wi re on the coast, Admiral Don Juan Martinez sailed with his fleet from Carthageha to intercept them ; but after engaging thetn for some time, the fire of the English was so incessant that the. Spanish Admiral found it expedient to haul his wind, and to retuiif to port with all possible expedition. A long note is inserted in the Moniteur of the 15th in answer to the English papers upon the sub- ject of the invasion. It boasts that the Shannon is blocked up by a fine squadron; that our colo- nies had drawn up their articles of capitulation, and sent agents to Villeneuve to treat with him, but that that was not his object; that the invasion will take place if we do not make peace : it will take place in a year, perhaps in two, perhaps in three. The Diligent fell in with, oil Tuesday se'nnight, about 30 sail of schooners, schuyts, and brigs, going to Boulogne. She engaged them in Whit- sand- Bay, and handled them very roughly; but get- ting herself too near the shore batteries, and hiving had two men killed and two wounded, her fore top mast shot away, and her rigging much cut, she was forced to haul off. The enemy got into Vimereux. An American gentleman from Boulogne says, the French are from daily practice become very alert in getting out or getting into the harbour, the various gun- boats and praams striking their masts and running end on the shore, as if attempt- ing to force a landing by a tremendous line of fire. Each of these, . vessels carries two long 32- pounders, one elevated upon the other. The troops do not seem very sanguine or hearty in the business, though they say they are ready to start at a mo- ment's warning.— They have had infused into their minds a strange idea, that the British will not grant them any quarter in case of their being defeated. Lord Keith has sailed in the Edgar, to join the fleet under Admiral Russell. His Lordship, we believe, has joined the North Sea squadron merely for the purpose of inspecting the preparations of the enemy. Sir Edward Pcllew has taken great pains to strengthen our navy in the East Indies. He lias added to our naval strength the Charon and Kai- kaussaoo, two India ships, which were converting, with all possible expedition, into 44- gun frigates, 18- pounders, to be called the Lord Howe and Lord Duncan. It was in agitation to convert the Castlereagh into a frigate, to carry the same num- ber of guns. The Tremendous and Grampus were under orders to proceed immediately to the Isle of France, for the purpose of blockading it. Orders are issued for every line of battle ship at Portsmouth or Plymouth, in a condition for sea, to sail immediately for the Channel fleet. The Windsor Castle, of 98 guns, and the Cap- tain and Audacious, 74 guns, have sailed to join the grand fleet. The first payment of the subsidy to Russia is now preparing to be sent to St. Petersburgh. Great quantities of dollars are collecting for this service. Theinngazineat. Placenza, in Italy, blew up on the lSt. li July. The keeper of the magazine was sus- pected of embezzling the stores; and as a search was going on, he was seen to enter with a roll of paper in his hand, in which it is supposed he had concealed a match, and therewith setting , fire to the powder, involved in his own destruction that of a Captain and seven cannoneers, who were blown to atom?; and 14 privates of the corps, who were outside the magazine,, were much wounded. Thirty- two artillery - waggons were blown up, and an ancient Gothic church was de- stroyed by the explosion, but the place was not otherwise injured. The Gazette of Saturday contains a long Order in Council for carrying into effect the Legislative restrictions lately imposed on the Slave Trade. After December next the annual importation of slaves into our Colonies is limited to three for every hundred in the colony, provided it shall appear that casualties to that extent have taken place in the preceding year. An Order of Council was issued on Jie 15th instant, for the establishment of a Fot rth Division of Royal Marines, to be stationed at Woolwich, consisting of 31 companies, one Naval Colonel, one Colonel- Commandant, one Second Colonel- Commandant, three Colonels, four Majors, two Adjutants, one Barrack - Blaster, one Quarter- master, bne Surgeon, & c. This augmentation includes Captain Savage, of Portsmouth, to be full Major, and 22 First Lieutenants to beCaptains. The Duke of York, in consequence of the death of the Duke of Gloucester, becomes the senior Field- Marshal of Great- Britain. The other three Field- Marshals are the Duke of Argvle, Marquis Townshend, and Duke of Richmond. His Royal Highness the Duke of Kent is to have the command of the first regiment of Foot Guards, vacant by the death of the Duke of Gloucester. Early yesterday morning a will of the Duke of Gloucester was found, in which he expresses a de- sire to be buried at Windsor, of which notice was given to the Lord Chamberlain; and forthwith an express was sent off to Weymouth, to inform his Majesty. In consequence of this circumstance all preparations for the funeral, which were to have coinmcuced yesterday, were suspended until his Majesty's commands are known, which are ex- pected to arrive this day. No intention, we understand, is entertained of embalming the body of his Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester. This custom, usual on the death of Princes of the Blood Royal, is in the present instance to be omitted at the express de- sire of his Royal Higbness's only son, Prince William. The Court mourning on the occasion of the death I of the late Duke of Cumberland continued six ' weeks, viz. four of whole mourning, and two of ! second. His Majesty has subscribed if .100, her Majesty > if. 50, and the Royal Dukes and Princesses ^ f. to each, for establishing village- schools for 10,000 children, on the plan adopted by Mr. Lancaster, the quaker. Instances of Spanish Cruelty.— In the year 1630 they ( the Spaniards) landed on trie island of St. Christopher's; they selected 600 of the ablest men among , the English settlers, and condemned them to the mines, and ordered all the rest, con- sisting chiefly of women and children, to quit tlie island under pain of death. Eight years after this they attacked a small English colony at Tor- tuga, and put every man, woman, and child, to the sword.— In 1650 they laiided at Santa- Cruz, which the English were then in possession of, and murdered every man, woman, and child, as at Tortuga; and they treated the Dutch, who- took possession of it some time afterwards, as they had treated the English.— Ahout the yeHr 1680, they landed at. New- Providence, one of the Bahama Islands, and totally destroyed the English settle- ment there; they carried Mr. Clark, the Governor, away to Cuba, and there put him to death bv tor- ture. It is true that Cromwell very justly chastised them for their insolence and barbarity in his time; but under the reign of the Stuarts, and even in later reigns, it is much to be lamented, that they have been permitted to outrage humanity with impunity. And it is not to be doubted, were some of the mines of South- America to be ex- plored, that there would be found in them, even at this time, a great number of English, as well as other Europeans, dragging on a miserable exist- ence, and doomed to perpetual slavery.— From the Notes to Whitchurch's Hispimiola. By the command of the King of Spain, a me- moir by Dr. Lafuente has been published, which contains a new method of curing the yellow fever. According to the experiments of this physician, quinquina is the most powerful remedy for that dreadful disease. By taking from eight to ten ounces of quinquina in the first forty- eight hours of the disorder, the fatal consequences of the yellow or any other fever may be prevented. Hawthorns.— The necessity of inclosing land is generally known: hawthorn fences have been found most effectual, but are tedious in their growth; to obviate this inconvenience, Samuel Taylor, Esq. of Moston, near Manchester, has proved, by a variety of accurate experiments, that a greater increase of hawthorn plants may be had from cutcings of the roots than by any other mode, and that such plants are stouter and quicker in growth. HOP INTELLIGENCE.— Worcester, August 15. It is not possible for the hops to be in a worse state than at the present period, and bets are against if. 300 duty for the county, which has paid up- wards of £. 6000.— Canterbury, August 22". The appearance of the growing crop is by no means mended; the weak grounds have totally done growing, and the strong are infected with vermin to an uncommon degree, and if the weather should continue cold, will produce but very few hops. A naval officer was on Tuesday put on shore at Dover, and sent to Maidstone gaol, charged with forging the name of his Captain, with intent to defraud Government. At Croydon assizes, T. Newsham, a clergyman, who stands charged with various swindling trans- actions, was indicted for obtaining, from Thomas Ramsdale, a shoemaker, the sum of five guineas, by falsely pretending he could procure for him a presentation to Christ's Hospital for one of his sons. The Jury found him guilty, and the learned Judge, after addressing the prisoner on the enor- mity of his offence, which was rendered deeper by bis rank and education, sentenced him to seven years transportation.

Marsh, of Canterbury, from a most deplorable accident:— He climbed upon a part of the ruinous wall of St. Augustine's monastry, to view an exhibition of fire- works in the tnclosure, when a loose stone giving way he was precipitated upon the jagged end of a piece of timber, which entered the lower portion of his back and penetrated upwards into his body more than six inches: from this dreadful si- tuation he alone extricated himself, at the same time withdrawing his clothes, which had been forced into the wound, and walked more than a quarter of a mile to his own house; bu* the most skilful assistance could not prevent a mortincation. A pregnant widow and five small children lament his untimely end. MILLINERY AMD FANCY DRESS- MAKING. EBLAXLEY begs Leave to return her grateful .

DOUGAL, Clerk to the Trustees of the said Turnpike- Road Glaston, 29/ I Aug. 1805. . •,'... 1 Friday and Saturday's Posts. LONDON, August 30. THE affair of the 22( 1, between Admiral Cornwallis and ! he Brest fleet, was more serious thrin the bulletin published by Government led u » to suppose. The sallant Admiral himself, in the Ville de Paris, led the van, and had nearly cut off the French Rear- Admiral; He was nobly supported by Sir R. Strachan, in the Caesar, who requested permission, by signal, to range next to him in the line. The other ships particularly en- gaged were, the Namnr, Captain, and Montague. The Captain had recently joined the fleet, and distinguished herself very much. Her fire was the most tremendous ever witnessed; she appeared one entire blaze. Part of a shell struck Admiral Cornwallis upon the breast, hut fortunately it. did him no injury. The Cajsar hod three men killed and seven wounded. The Ville de Paris and Namur had several wounded, hut none kille d they received several shot in their hulls and sails. The French fleet only advanced just outside their bat- teries, when the action commenced; vet, had they not tacked and ran back so soon, a general en- gagement must have ensued, or several of them would have been taken. The enemy, no doubt,, suffered severely, as our ships were enabled to rake them. The Montague, Captain Otway, followed them close in under their batteries, constantly exchanging shots with ." hem. Notwithstanding all the accommodation and pliancy of the Cabinet of Berlin, the Prussian Monarch will find it a most arduous task to per- severe in his neutrality. If he suffers a Russian army to accumulate in Swedish Pome'rania, dls- , taut only a few hours march from the Electorate of Hanover, how is he to acquit the engagement which he is supposed to have made with Bonaparte ? If, on the other hand, he should declare against the occupation of that province bv an ally of f4Sweden, how is he to avoid embroiling himself with the Emperor of Russia? Should his Minister, in the diplomatic communications that may arise, advance that his Master opposed the occupation because it compromised the tranquillity of the North of Germany, would not the argument be retorted upon him ? Would he not be required, upon the same principle, to expel the French from Hanover? That Electorate is just as convenient for making an irruption into the dominions of his Swedish Majesty, as Pomerania is for the invasion of Hanover, and the bringing of a Rus- sian force in contact with the vmies of France. Had his Prussian Majesty resolutely declared against the occupation of the Electorate, when first thai, bold infraction of the public law of Europe was meditated by France, he would not be placed in the state of difficulty and danger in which he now finds himself; for there is no alternative for Prussia between the friendship and enmity of Russia. If she connive or acquiesce in the iiitro- rlui tion of a Russian army into Swedish Pome- ranin, she must, incur the displeasure of Bonaparte; if she oppose it, war ensues with Russia;.— We king to see the attempt made; it will be the touch- stone of her neutrality. A considerable body of Hanoverians, it appears, if about to be raised, for the purpose of adding them to our Corps of Marines. There is no doubt of ihe dispositions of the unfortunate subjects of his Majesty's German dominions being loyal in a high degree. Indignant at the treatment they have experienced from their invaders and oppress- ors, they feel many personal reasons to strengthen their affection to their Sovereign, and their hatred to the tyrant of France, all whose efforts have hitherto been completely unsuccessful to wring from the people of Hanover any expression of submission, or approbation of his injustice, or any requests of union with France, or of a constitution of his appointment. Wi re the Russian forces to proceed through the North of Germany into Han- over, and to succeed in expelling the scourges of Europe, there is 110 doubt that the Electorate would afford at h ast 20,000 brave soldiers, eager to avenge the wrongs of their country, exclusive of the general voluntary patriotic efforts of the people. Bonaparte has used every artifice to raise troops in Hanover, but has been unsuccessful. The few whom he procured at first he can scarcely trust; th;- remainder, we believe, are perfectly sound and well- disposed. Disarmed at present, they wait only the opportunity which, we trust, will speedily be given them, of a terrible and just retaliation.— Human nature must, indeed, have been strangely changed for the worse in these revolutionary tiroes, if the case he not the same ill all or most of the conquered countries; but an opportunity must be afforded them. It is observable, that in one of the late official notes in the Moniieur, the language of defiance which is usually held towards this country is ma- terially changed. It will be Recollected, that in the famous expose, published before the war by the French Government, it was triumphantly as- serted, that " England, single- handed, was not a match- fir France." Two years of war, however, through the whole of which France has had the as- sist ahee of Holland, and during a part of which she has had the command. of the whole navy of Spain, have convinced her of the futility of that boast. Instead, therefore, of now asserting, that " Eng-[ land' is not a match, single- handed, for France," the proposition i. i considerably softened, and the J Miniiteur contents itself with declaring, that 1 " England, single- handed, Can do nothing against Fiance." The French have long been proverbial for mis- representat n as well as gasconade, and a glaring proof of theii talents in the former respect is ob servable in the returns they have made relative to the late action between Villeneuve and Sir Robert Calder. According to all the accounts from our fleet ( in which the Spanish Captains fully concur), the French ship Scipio was Very severely handled by our gallant tars, and had absolutely struck, though it contrived to make its escape, favoured by the state of the atmosphere; yet, in the French Admiral's official return of this ship, it was stated, that it had neither killed nor wounded. A more impudent falsehood hardly ever appeared, even in the naval records of Republican or Imperial France. The arrival of the East and West India convoys is daily expected. Directions were forwarded some days since to Admiral Cornwallis off Brest, and to the Admiral on the Irish station, to afford them every protection possible, should they fall in with them, and to convoy them up the Channel, should it be requisite. By letters just received, we learn that the cele- brated traveller Muugo Parke, with his compa- nions, Messrs. Anderson and Scott, who sailed from Portsmouth in the Crescent transport six months ago, having touched at the islands of Jago and Goree, arrived at Kayay, on the river Gambia, on the 14th of April, whence they were to proceed in a few days into the interior of Africa, to effect the business oil which they were dispatched, and which we believe to be of a very important, and extensive nature.— The heat was at that time so excessive, that the thermometer was constantly at JOO degrees and upwards in the shade, and for two or three hours after sunset continued at from 82 to 92 degrees. We are happy, however, to hear, that notwithstanding this excess of heat, the whole party had onjoyed perfect healththey only lost one of the 50 men they had received from the African corps at Goree, though they had been above fourteen days on had been unwell before they Model of an impregnable Castle.— Mr, Gillespie ' has invented a model for a covered battery, which is intended for guarding the coasts of the United Kingdom. It is upon a movable principle, and carric only one gun ( an 3- 1- pounder), which can he directed in a moment to any one given point. This gun can he elevated or lowered by the most simple machinery, and having a tube at the top parallel to its axis, it may be brought to take surer aim than by the mode now in use. The mechanism is so wonderfully ingenious, that it is calculated to turn the most ponderous mortars of guns of any calibre with the greatest ease, and the whole can be worked by five men, who remain inside the battery in perfect safety. It is so constructed, that it resists the most powerful engines used in the besieging of towns, & c. This wonderful in- vention has excited the admiration of all who have seen it. The Board of Ordnance have borne tes- timony of its merit. Mr. Pitt, Sir Sydney Smith, Sir Thomas Trollope, General Debbeig, are among its admirers. This impregnable castle resembles in slrtpe a polygon, moving round upon an in- clined pljuic, so as always to present an acute angle to the point of an attack. It is intended to be completely boinb- proof, by being lined on the outsides with iron, from two to four inches in thickness, which would render it impregnable to any shot, if even taken in a flank direction, which never presents itself, the'sides of the battery being BIRMINGHAM FIRE - OFFICE. ripHE Directors of the BIRMINGHAM FIRE- though they bad been ; | OFFICE being desirous of appointing AGENTS the river, and this man i in the CITIES and principal TOWNS in the Kingdom, ey left the island. ! request Persons of Respectability, who would wish ' to be appointed, to make Application to Ihe Secretary, who will inform them of the Allowance made for transacting the Business.

Three ammunition waggons arrived at Wor- I cester on Wednesday seViiight, with 200,000 rounds of ball cartridges, besides gunpowder, for the use of the Volunteers. The last accounts from Weymouth state his Majesty to be in all respects in excellent health, though the death of so near and dear a relation as the Duke of Gloucester must naturally have excited very distressing emotions. An answer has been received from his Majesty respecting the funeral of the late Duke of Glou- cester, in consequence of which the corpse of his Royal Highness is certainly to be interred under Henry the Seventh's Chapel, in Westminster Abbey, along with, the remains of the departed branches of his illustrious family ; and the prepa- rations, which were suspended, have been ordered to proceed.— The funeral is to take place on Thurs- day next. A young man of respectable appearance was apprehended at Hull on Friday last, for uttering forged five- pound notes, purporting to he those of Raper, Swann, and Co. of York. He says his name is Charles Butler, late an Ensign in the 50th Foot: when taken into custody, four hundred and ninety- one forged notes were found tipon him, and he had passed seven just before, besides destroying two.

A few days ago, our squadron perceived the ex- tensive camp along the hills of Boulogne, to be struck in a few moments; immediately after 200 sail of the enemy's vessels came out of the harbour, and were attacked by our crhisers: they were full of troops, and even the smallest boat had as many oil board as she could possibly stow. ' Ihe wind, however, coming about to the westward, they all returned into the harbour, and our ships were not able to make any impression upon them.— It is supposed, from the number of brigs, praams, sloops, schuyts, gun- boats, and luggers, which are now stationed at Boulogne, and the adjacent small harbours along the coast, the enemy's ships in that quarter cannot amount to less than 2000, all ready for sea at a moment's notice; the luggers are parti- cularly numerous, and they are well known to be the most convenient for the debarkation of troops. The enemy's camp, it is caid, extends in a line of at least seven miles along the hills near Boulogne. Two Hamburgh Mails remain due. The intel- ligence which they may be expected to bring, has, however, been already anticipated; and we re- peat, that a grand plan of Continental co- operation is about to be adopted, the object of which is to restrain and correct the present system of French perfidy and aggression, inconsistent as it is with the tranquillity atid safety of Europe. A spirited Manifesto upon this subject is expected on the part of the Confederate States, to precede the actual commencement of* hostilities against the common disturber, of mankind. PRICE or STOCKS.

It is ferfon ' Al> PUCa"- mOMAS MCHl! thereforc not treasonable to suppose, that they Txuywtllt Aug. 1805. must either have got into Kochetort or Ferrol, or LONDON, August 31. SOME further dispatches have been received at the Admiralty from Admiral Cornwallis, dated the 25th instant. At that time, the enemy had not made any fresh movements, nor- had the gallant Admiral received any advice of the combined fleets. We understand, however, that the dis- patches state the arrival of Admiral Sir Robert Calder off Ferrol; and this circumstance gave rise to a report, that the combined fleet had again returned to Ferrol, where they were blockaded by the British squadron.— The master of the Trimmer cartel, arrived at Portsmouth from Corunna, states that when he left that port on the 20th, there was not a single ship of the line there. The day after he sailed, he fell in with the Defiance, one of Sir I Robert Calder's squadron, about seven leagues I from Corunna. The former statement of our squadron having been off Ferrol on the 20th, ap- pears, therefore, to have been correct. The cartel neither saw nor heard any thing of the combined squadrons. It is the opinion of Lord Nelson, that they may have got into Rochofort; but no certain information respecting them has vet been received. NORTHAMPTON, SATURDAY EVENING, August 31.

His Lordship was in his 71st year. He was on a visit to Viscount and Viscountess Villicrs, at. their house, Prospcct- Lodge, and had accompanied them that morning to the Wells. Upon his return from the walks to Prospect- Lodge, after drinking the waters, he fell down in a fit and instantly ex- pired.

Broad, eleven years Matron to the General Infirmary in this town. - Lieutenant C. W. Kerr, of the 62d regiment, is appointed to be Captain, without purchase, vice D'Alton, appointed to the 90th Foot.— London Gazette. I The Altborp, Northampton, and Wymersley Troops of Yeomanry, commanded by F. arl Spencer, and the Northampton Troop of Cavalry, com- manded by Captain Kerr, were inspected on Thurs- day last, on the Market- Hill, bv General Gwynne, General VV'arde, and Colonel Corbett. who indi- vidually expressed themselves perfectly satisfied with the state and appearance Of the different troops; remarking, with pleasure, that notwith- standing the very important avocations in which so many of tin. members « f the different Troops were at; this time necessarily engaged, but few were absent. ' I^ he third battalion of Birmingham Volunteers have offered to extend - their services, at this mo- ment, to anv part of Great- Britain. The offer has been accepted.- Wednesday last being the Anniversary Meeting of the General Infirmary in this town, for the relief of the sick and lame poor of all counties, there was a great appearance of Governors a* d Subscribers at the Angel Inn ( the Right Hon. Earl Spencer in the chair); where the report of its present state of the patients, admitted and dis- charged, and of tJie monies received and paid within the last year, was read and laid before them; when they rxpresscd great satisfaction in the management of this noble charity, by which •' Sr, 490 persons have been cured, and 5402 have been relieved since' the foundation of the Old County Hospital in 1744. After which the Go- vernors and Subscribers walked in procession to the Parish- Church of AH Saints, where a most ex- cellent sermon was preached on the occasion, by the Rev. W. S. Willes, from the 3d chapter of the 1st book of Kings, verse the 14th, And if thou rcilt walk in my ways, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as thy father David did walk, then I will lengthen thy days; and a collection was made j at the church doors as usual, amounting to £. 76 12s. Sd. to which 4s. has since been ! added. Grand Junction Cunal.— We are happy to nn- I nounc. e the completion of nearly all the great | works which were going on upon this important and extensive line of inland navigation, rendered I peculiarly interesting to Englishmen by forming an j immediate connection with the British capital, and ( the numerous canals which intersect and cross each other in all directions between our great ma- ! nufacturing towns and works.— On Monday morn- | ing last, the stupendous embankment between 1 Woolverton and Cosgrove, near Stony- Stratford, ! Was opened for the use of the trade. Boats navigating the Grand Junction Canal will now avoid the delay, labour, and danger, of passing: I ei^ ht locks; and there is plenty of water secured n ( till lately) one of its mOst deficient levels.— We are also assured that ihe Tring summit, not- withstanding an increasing trade, and that period of the year is arrived when deficiencies as to water are generally beginning to be severely felt,— is as completely supplied, as evidently to rise daily( when the steam- engine there is kept constantly at work; nor was there any necessity for using it at all, till July had commenced.— The Braunston summit is also equally improved.— Besides the water now remaining in the two reservoirs, tile steam- engine, which began working about Mid- summer last, throws back half, or more than half, the necessary quantity for working the locks towards the Oxford Canal; and side- ponds have within this fortnight been connected with the locks, to the south of that summit, saving also in that direction a very considerable quantity of water. The branch and iron railway, which arc to con- nect the Grand JunctionCanal with the river at this town, as also with the Leicestershire and North- amptonshire Union Canal, are proceeding with great spirit, and their completion may be c- xjjec^ cd about the end of next month. This new junction is expected to prove of great importance to this county, Leicestershire, and several of the adjoin- ing coun'k s. A meeting of the Commissioners named in the Act, for deciding nil differences be- tween the Company and individuals or bodies of men, began on Monday last, nt Aylesbury, find continued its sittings until Wednesday; when the disputes between the Company and the millers on the Thame river were fully gone into; and we are happy to hear, that, the millers agreed to withdraw all claims for satisfaction, for the water of which they have been hitherto deprived. We are now surrounded on every side by the bounteous attributes of the " God of harvest;" and whether jve look to the species of grain con- stituting the " staff of man's life;" to the bearded ear, which supplies his most wholesome beverage ; or to the bending oat, the chief article, of pro- vender for his cattle ; we are equally filled with gratitude to the Divine Dispenser of Gocrl, for the great plenty of every kind with which it has pleased him so generally to fill our corn fields.— The crops were never known to be greater, and the weather has hitherto been propitious to their maturity. At Hinckley fair, on Monday last, mcated stock was ready sale, and the major part bought up early ill the day. Last week, 200 sixpenny loaves were distributed among the poor of the parish of St. Martin, Leicester, being the produce of a wager between an assessor and a parishioner of the said parish. Some words arising between the parties, it was as- serted the assessor had obliged a neighbour to pay his assessment twice. Five guineas were laid by tiio assessor that the party alluded to would not . near, it: the party did swear before a Magistrate, " that he had been charged twice, and tens otd. gcil to pay the second time, on the caih of the assessor." The money was consequently won by the parish- ioner, who disposed of it as above among the de- serving poor. On Sunday night last, about half past eisht o'clock, a gentleman in his own carriage, with post- horses from the Crowns, in Leicester, was stopped within a short distance of Ro'thley- House, on the road to Loughborough, by two highwaymen, apparently well mounted, one of whom l- ode up to the post- boy, presented a pistol to Ijis head, and threatened to blow out his brains, whilst the other robbed the gentleman of his watch, and pocket- book, containing upwards of .20. On giving the watch, the geiitloinan said it was a family piece of little value, and expressing a wish to keep it, it was Tturned, and the highwayman also gave him a guinea out of his pocket to pay his expences. They turned their horses towards Leicester, sup- posed for Northampton races. They are repre- sented as small in stature, slovenly in appearance, but capitally mounted. Saturday last was committed to the gaol of this county, by the Rev. Thomas Hornsby, William Coburn, charged on suspicion of stealing a piece of Russia- duck cloth, the property of Mr. Joseph Enock; and a brass furnace, a small brass kettle, a pewter pot, and a copper tea- kettle, the property of John Willson ; both of Radway. —— NORTHAMPTON RACES.

' MEATH the tall oaks that shade yon village spire, Where slowly winding steals the silver stream, Where weary'd mortals from this world retire, Sleep undisturb'd and free from fancy's dream ; There lies entomb'd, beneath the mould'ring sod, The orphan's father and the poor roan's friend, Who smooth'd the rugged path Affliction trod. Whose pride was virtuous knowledge to extend. There oft at eve the rustic village throng, Stre*\ flowers with fancy o'er the good man's grave, There oft at eve they sing the sacred song, The song of sorrow for the good and brave. A SPORTING INTELLIGENCE. In » onseq* ence of Mr. Bromford's declining to J& le on Saturday, attheYork Races, Mrs. Thornton To the PROPRIETORS of ESTATES in the Pa- rishes and Hamlets of TVJRS GHOF. and PIOI'ITLES- TUCIKNK, in the County of Bucl: s. MEETING of " the PROPRIETORS of ESTATES in those Parishes, is intended to be holden at the KINC'S- AR « S INN, at IVINGHOE, Bucks, on WEDNESDAY the 28th of AUGUST next, at Eleven o'Clock in the Forenoon, to take into Consi- deration the Expediency of applying to Parliament for Leave to bring in a Bill for inclosing, or allotting and dividiijg- the several open and uninclosed Common Fields in the said Parishes and Hamlets; at which Meeting the several Proprietors are requested to give their Attendance. WILL. HAYTON. 27lb July, 1805. ( Stocks- House, Hempsted- Bag.) ~ N OT1CE IS HEREBY GIVEN, Application is intended tc loflourable Co the Honourable the House of Commons in the next Session ot Parliament for Leave to bring in a Bill in order to obtain an Act for continuing the Term .. . and altering and enlarging the Powers of an Act passed walked, or ratlier cantered, m a most excellent stile, t jn the twenty- first Year of the Reign of His present over the course, accompanied by Colonel Thornton, j Majesty King George the Third, far mote effectually 1 agreeably to the terms of tiic match, for four hogsheads of Cdtfs It otic, 2000 guineas, h. ft. and for COO guineas, p. p. bet by Mrs. T. Afterwards commenced a match, in which the above Eadv was to ride two tuilcs against Mr. Buckle, the jockey, well known at Net/ market nail other places of sport as a rider of the first celebrity. Mrs. Thornton appeared dressed for the contcst in a purple cap and waistcoat, nan- keen - coloured) skirts, purple shots, and em- broidered stockings; she was every way in health and, spirits, and scorned eager for the decision of the match. Mr. Buckle was dressed in a blue cap, with blue- bodied jacket and white sleeves. Mrs. Thornton carried 9st. Gib.; Mr. Buckle > 3st. Olb. At half- past three they started; Mrs. Thornton took the lead, which she kept for some time; Mr. Buckle then put in trial his jockey- ship, and passed the Lady, which he kept for only a few lengths, when Mrs. Thornton pushed forward, and came in in a stile far superior to any thing of the kind ever witnessed, gaining her race by half a neck. The manner of Sirs. Thornton's rifling is certainly of the first description; indeed her close seat and perfect management of her horse, her bold and steady jockevship, amazed one of the most crowded courscs we have for a long time witnessed; on her winning, she was hailed with the tiiost reiterated shouts of congratulation. Mis. Thornton rode Louisa, sister to Kill- Devil, by Pegasus, out of Nelly: Mr. Buckle rode Allegro, by Pegasus, out of AHegranti's dam. A terrible row took place at the stand in the afternoon, in consequence of a dispute between Mr. Flint, who rode against Mrs. Thornton last year, and Colonel Thornton, respecting c/. 1000. " Mr. Hint posted the Colonel on Thursday, and the Colonel recriminated yesterday. This day Mr. Flint came to the sJatid with a new horsewhip, which he applied to the Colonel's shoulders with great activity, in the presence of a crowd of ladies. All the gentlemen in the place, indignant at. this gross and violent outrage, hissed and hooted him. He was arrested by order of the Lord Mayor and several Magistrates who were present, and" given into custody of the city runners, until he can find bail, himself in ,£. 1000, and two sureties in £. 500 each. Colonel Thornton is also bound over to prosecute the party for the assault. limiting regulated.— At a late meeting of the Jockey Club, it was resolved, " That all bets made on the Derby or Oak's Stakes at Epsom; the Pavilion tit Briglithelmstonc; the St. Leger at Doncaster; and also on the Newmarket Stakes, and the Oatlauds' Stakes in the Spring and October Meetings— be deemed play or pay bets; and also, that all hots between particular horses be null and void if neither of the horses happen to be the winner, unless specified to the contrary." Sir Sydney Smith's Erpen\ ment.— Friday this gal- lant officer entertained the iuhf. bitants residing at the water- side with a new kind of nautical experi- ment. Some time since Sir Sydney constructed the model of a vessel intended to convey large bodies of troops, without, noise or confusion, in shallow water, under the enemy's batteries. The first, experiment took place on Friday morning about ten o'clock, when Sir Sydney, a naval Lieu- tenant, and six men, independently of four others who were stationed at the oars, got on board the vessel, proceeded up to Chelsea, and from thence sailed down the river to Greenwich. The form of this spft resembles two wherries laid alongside, but separated by means of a platform twenty- four feet wide and twenty- two feet long, to which the wherries are attached. Eight sprit- sails carries the yessel. These sails are so constructed as to form, when necessary, a complete tent, under which the regulating officer and men are stationed. The' whole contrivance appears very, ingenious, and the most sanguine expectations are formed of its ultimate success. A patent has lately been obtained for sundry improvements in the art of making paper, and which consist in the application of machinery instead of hand- labour, in almost every branch of the process; and although the apparatus is said to be extremely simple, the effect surpasses all credibility, as well for its facility as the accuracy of the execution. By this machinery, paper can be made of very great diincnsiops ( even many feet square) with perfect ease; and, by a continual or circulating process, sheets may be made of an immoderate width ami almost endless length. Paper can also be completed from the liquid stuff to a marketable state at ot^ o operation, that is to say, bypassing only once through the machine; so" that if there is a river of pulp or prepared stuff on one side the apparatus, a stream of finished paper will issue from the contrary to the warehouse, with a velocity proportioned to the speed of the machine. At York assizes, General Dickson, in the ser- vice of the East India Company, brought an action against. Mr. Allen, an attorney, at Harrowgate, for false imprisonment. It appeared that the de- fendant had arrested him instead of a Mr. Dick- son, and, though assured by Lord Balhavcn and Mr. Ramsay, the banker, of Edinburgh, that the General was not the man, persisted in holding him to bail.— The Jury gave a verdict for the plaintiff, with £. 200 damages. rsa.";' -'- --—'-' 1 —— SEPERNE's BLOOM OR WHITE CEPHALIC SNUFF.

DR. JAMES's POWDER. rpHIS MEDICINE, which is so superior to all X others in Efficacy, Certainty, and Safety, should ever be given on the first Attack of the Disorder; for, if it be not sufficient of itself to effect a Cure ( as in intermittent and putrid Fevers), it is allowed to be the best Preparative for, and Concomitant with, the Bark and other Remedies, which the Symptoms require. But as the genuine Powder has been often known to restore the Patient, after its Substitutes, and every other Febrifuge, have tailed, it ought to be tried even in tne last Extremity.— Great Benefits have been derived from the Powder in Disorders thought beyond the Reach of Medicine, when taken every Night, as an Alterative; and, from the Success of the Rev. Mr. Singleton Harpur, of Dublin, there is Reason to believe that it may prove a Remedy iu the Hydrocephalus, or Water on the Brain.

SI R, IConsider it but an Act of Justice due to the Merits of your LEAKE's PATENT PILLS, to communicate to you the following Cure, which has recently b: en performed by them:— An Acquaintance of mine, who, by the breaking out of an old Venereal Complaint ( attended by a Complication of Disorders arising therefrom), was reduced almost to a Skeleton, and although he had the best Medical Advice which could be obtained, and tried a Variety of Patent Me- dicines, Nothing could be procured which seemed to suit his Case, or to do him any Service: He remained in a most reduced and pitiable Situation for two Years, unable to follow his Profession, and scarcely able to walk or even to stand on his Legs; in Fact, no one who knew him ever supposed it possible for him to, recover. He was advised at last to try your LE AKE'S PILLS ; he did so, adhering strictly to the Directions given with them; he had not taken more than two Boxes before he found an Alteration for the better; this encouraged him to proceed, and by taking a few Boxes more he found his Appetite and Strength gra- dually return, and is now as healthy and stout as any Man 1 know. You are welcome. Sir, to refer any Person to me for a Confirmation of the above Account if it should be doubted. I am, Sir, your » bedient humble Servant, THOS. PURDAY.

Fond of Chymistry and its Pursuit, he knew it to be desirable to produce a mild Diaphoretic, which should give Vigour to the System, by promoting its natural Secretions, This is the Principle on which he acted, . keeping in Mind the Necessity of rendering the Dose small, and palatable to the Stomach.

Many unsuccessful Remedies, recommended By the most eminent in the Profession, were tried, which would be tedious to recapitulate; suffice it to say, that the Cordial BaWn or' Gilead was the only Remedy that had the long- wished- for Effect. So sensible is the Colonel of the great Effi- cacy of this Medicine, that lie has generously given Dr. Solomon Permission to make Ose of his Name in recommending the Cordial Balm of Gilead as a most valuable, safe, and efficacious Medicine, in all Cases of Weakness or Relaxation of the Nervous System, & c. & c.

JAMES's ANALEPTIC PILLS, a new Mode of administering these DR. FROM Pilfs, by the Advice of an eminent Phvsician ( see the new Directions), Bilious Diseases, So prevalent, particularly among Persons who have resided in hot Climates, are removed with greater Ease and Safety than by any other Medicine. They are equally effi- cacious in all Disorders of the Stomach and Bowels; in Indigestions, Loss of Appetite, habitual Costive- ness, troublesome Flatulencies, and Cholics; like- wise in Gouty Habits, in Giddiness, or Rheumatic Pains in the Head; as well as those occasioned by free Living: Thereby preventing Palsies and Apoplexies, so often the Consequence of Intemperance. Recourse should be had to them on the first Attack of a Cold, or any slight Indisposition, or after any Excess ot eating or drinking; and thus their well- known Characteristic will be maintained, of promoting Longevity. Travellers, by Sea or Land, should never be without the Analeptic Pills, as they require neither Confine- ment nor Alteration of Diet. They are sold only by F. NEWBERY & SONS, at the Warehouse forDr. James's Powder, No. 45, St. Paul's Church- Yard, four Doors from Cheapside, London, in Boxes, Price 4s. 6d. each; or in one large Box, containing the Quantity of six, for 24s.

Marshall, Northampton." I^ ROM the Nobleman to the Peasant, Intoxica- . tion is the Cause of many of the Disorders which now afflict Mankind. When Reason is thrown off her Guard by the potent Force of drinking to Excess, it too often happens that this Imprudence produces another, or, in plain Terms, a Connection with a disordered or unclean Person; and frequently those who are guilty of these Indiscretions are on tile Point of entering into the sacred Band of Wedlock, with a discreet and virtuous Companion. What is the Con- sequence of these repeated Improprieties' The in- fectious Poison which has lurked in the Body of the Husband is communicated to the Wife, and entailed upon the Offspring, who comes into the World a disgusting Spectacle to all Beholders, and subject to the Evil, Eruptions of the most inveterate Tendency, & c. A Mechanic, who uses Metal in the Completion of any Performance, that has not been properly refined, will find his Workmanship break, crack, and display a Variety of Imperfections, in Defiance of all Pains and Diligence: It is exactly the same with those who enter into the State of Wedlock without having their Bloofl properly purified from the contagious Dis- tempers it receives through these Errors; than which Nothing is more efficacious than Dr. BRODUM's BOTANICAL SYRUP, being an admirable Diu- retic, and acting by Perspiration, never failing to cure Complaints of this Nature, after they have lain dormant in the Blood for seven, eight, or ten Years. Although it is so effectual, it is at the same Time so innocent, that a Child, or a lying- in Woman might take it with the greatest Safety; nor is there the least Danger of taking Cold even in the most inclement' Season, which it is scarcely possible to escape during the Administration of a Course of Mercury. The BOTANICAL SYRUP and RESTORATIVE NER- VOUS CORDIAL to be had at the House, No. 9, Al- bion- Street, Surrey Side of Blackfriars Bridge, in Bottles at £.\ 2s.— lis.— and 6s. Duty included. ( J^ T A.
