Sunday and Tuesday's Posts. LONDON, October I'd. THE Paris Journals to the 23d, and Dutch Gazettes to the 26th instant, have been re- ceived; their contents principally relate to the movements and operations ot' the French and Aus- trian armies, and are truly important. On the 6th, the two hostile armies were in sight of each other; and their respective movements began to indicate clearly their mutual plans of operation. The Austrians strove to avoid a ge- neral battle, till their Russian auxiliaries- should arrive'on the banks of the Danube, and toward the North- West extremity of their line of defence; to preserve their communications with tlie Tyrol, and with Hungary and Austria; to oppose the pro- gress of the French by a war of posts, as obsti- nately, and as long as they could he rendered sub- servient to their purposes. On the forenoon of the 6th, the Austrians began to act in face of the French; and broke down the bridge over the Danube at Dqnauwerth. At seven o'clock that evening, the French advanced posts reached it. The foremost column came up almost instantly after to support them. In the night be- tween the 6th and 7th, this column took its position on the very ground where were the famous lines of SetiellCnberg in 1704, close by the town of 1/ onau- werth. The Austrians had planted their artillery on the opposite side of the river, and before morn- ing, an action commenced. The advantage was, at first, with the Austrians, but the French brought forward more artillery and new troops; and the efforts of the Austrian detachment began to be overpowered. As the firing slackened, the French, under the protection of their own artillery, re- stored the bridge. By noon, on the 7th, they had made the bridge again passable, passed it, and marched in numbers which were hourly augmented, after the Austrians. Tt had not been the intention of the Archduke Ferdinand and General Mack, there to risk a ge- neral engagement; the detachments at the bridge had therefore retired, after opposing the passage to their utmost. The French troops, determined to forcc the passage of the Danube, cost what it woujd, were received by the Austriaus with such showers of grape shot, that whole ranks nf the French army were mowed down; hut at last they gained their object, partly by swimming across the river. In the afternoon of the 7th, the French pursued their march along the great road % Augsburgh to Druisburg. They were much harassed, though not actually stopped on their march, by the lively and skilful fire of a party of Austrian Uhlans, re- tiring before them from the bridge. But, after their first success at Donauwerth, they passed, to the number of one hundred thousand men at Donau- werth, sit. Neuberg, and at Ingolstadt. At, Ncuberg, and at Ingolstadt, they were vigorously opposed by Austrian detachments, over which also, they pre- vailed. Passing in different columns at these se- veral places, they were enabled to intercept near Hochstadt, an Austrian detecliment, that appears to have been on its march to reinforce the Austrian strength at one of these posts. On the forenoon of the 8th, the advanced posts of the French were only at Meitingen, half- way between Donauwerth and Augsbtirgb.— On the 11th, Bonaparte's head- quarters were still at Do- nauwerth, and his columns which had crossed the Danube continued to advance into Bavaria.— The Austrians still fell back before them, from post to post. But they retired in good order; fought as they retired; and succeeded in retarding prodi- giously, and embarrassing the advancing march of the French. Actions have daily taken place between the two armies subsequently to the above date, in which both parties sustained great loss; but most of the accounts agree in stating, that the French, from their superiority in numbers, were ultimately suc- cessful. It appears that the junction of the first Russian column with a body ot Austrians took place on the Inn ou the 12th instant. The second Russian army was expcctcd to reach the Inn by the latter end of the present month. •— General Michelson, who commands the second division of this army, is the officer who so ably conducted the war against Sweden, in 1788. Ku- tusow, who leads the first division, is a man of infinite bravery, active, vigilant, and enterprising. He beat the Turks and Tartars at Barbada, with an inferior force; and at the close of that war was sent Ambassador to Constantinople. He has ever entertained the most determined hatred to- wards the French. General Tolskoy, who commands the Russian troops in Hanover, served with considerable suc- cess and talent against the Tartars, and is esteemed a brave and active officer. The Prussian Ambassador in London, has di- rected the Prussian Consul to notify to all the masters of Prussian vessels in this country, to be careful not to enter any of the ports of France or Holland, as they might thence be brought into danger. Lord Ilarrowby, accompanied by Mr. Hammond and Mr. Montague, set out yesterday afternoon for Harwich, to embark for Berlin. The object of his Lordship's mission is avowedly to give the greatest possible effect to the hostility which the Prussian Cabinet has at length manifested towards Bonaparte, and to afford whatever pecuniary as- sistance may be necessary. The co- opevation of Prussia in the war, an event now regarded as certain, cannot fail to produce the most important results. The conduct of the French forces iu the Prussian l'ranconian Provinces, has doubtless hastened the decision of the Cabinet of Berlin; but there is no doubt that it has, for some length of time, regarded the pro- ceedings of Bonaparte with particular jealousy and apprehension. The army of Prussia is estimated at 200,000 men, in an excellent state of discipline and ap- pointment; and her arsenals every where abun- dantly supplied with military stores of every de- scription. , The enemy's ships which lately committed such depredation on our commerce, have escaped the vigilance of our fleets. A notice was ou Saturday posted up at Lloyd's, stating, that an account was received from pfyinouth, that the Rochefort squa- dron had got safe into Fcrrol with all its prizes. The force which lately sailed under the com- mand of Sir Home Popham is, it is now generally believed, destined for the reduction of the Cupe of Good Hope. The King has appointed Lieutenant- General Henry Bowyer to be General and Commander of his Majesty's forces serving in the windward and leeward Charibbee island station. A person of respectability, who was liberated Under the last Insolvent Act, was yesterday brought before the magistrates at Union- llall, under the powers vested in them by that Act, charged with having made a false return of his debts and credits in the schedule he had sworn to and deposited with the clerk of the peace. The plaintiff, a creditor, made the charge, and now failed in substantiating it.— Mr. Morris attended as counsel for the de- fendant, and shewed that the alledged variance, to say the most of it, could not be construed into more than an unintentional error, and not a false return. The Bench, on hearing the whole of the case, were of opinion that the defendant should be discharged; and the plaintiff be adjudged to pay all the costs, which were put in at jf. 7 7s. At the New Bailey, Manchester, on Wednes- day last, the huntsman of the Oldham hounds was convicted in the mitigated penalty of £. 10, and costs, pursuant to the Act of Parliament, for having hunted in Droylsden, with eight hounds, no person being at the time with him duly qualified. It appeared he was entered regularly as the hunts- man, yet for want of this latter precaution he sub- jected himself to the penalty. Saturday Mr. King, an optician, undertook, for a wager of 30 guineas, to walk 26 miles in four hours. He started from the four- mile- stone, at Hammersmith, at seven o'clock, and went the first seven miles within the hour, and returned to the place from whence he started, without stopping, 17 minutes within the time allowed. Last week a gentleman of Melton shot a wood cock, on Sutton Common, which weighed seven- teen ounces and a half. The same gentleman has remarked a much greater number of rooks and crested plovers, assembled in flocks on the walks, than ever he remembers, which, according to old observers, indicates the length and severity of winter's cold. On Friday se'nnight, as the servant of Mr. Shank, of Cantley, Norfolk, was keeping crows off the laud, two eagles flew over him, when he fired, and brought one of them down. Its dimensions were 7 feet 4$ inches from the extremity of each wing, and 2J feet in height. On Sunday night the shop of a cheesemonger, in Brick- lane, Spitalfields, was broke open during the absence of the family, when a stone jar, contain- ing about £. 1,12.1 in notes and cash, svhich hud been placed in the betl chamber, between the sheets of the bed, was taken away, with some linen and wearing apparel. J. Colwill, of Newnham, Gloucestershire, a bankrupt in a late Gazette, and who contrived to persuade his creditors that he had beeu mur- dered in the road near Mintersworth, was ( para- doxical as it appears) detained in Edinburgh as the murderer of hifnself! A shocking accident happened last wfcek at Tewkesbury: a loaded gun being incautiously left, a little boy, about eight years old, took it up, not knowing it to be loaded, it iminediatejy went off, and lodged the contents iu the neck of his mother, who instantly expired. Comitatus Anglorum.— In this work it is stated, that in Great- Britain the number of people capable of rising in arms en masse, from 13 to 60 years of age, are 2,714,817; that the Volunteers in the United Kingdom last March were 700,000; that there are about 98,030 marriages yearly; that of 60 marriages 3 only are observed to be without offspring; that every 33 years produces a new generation; consequently, there have been 176 generations since the creation of the world ; that there die in Great- Britain every year about 332,708; every month about 25,592 ; every week 6398 ; every day 914 ; every hour about 40; and every three minutes 2 !! Jenkins's Bankruptcy.— Jenkins, the bankrupt, has undergone another close examination before the Commissioners at Guildhall.— His counsel spoke for a considerable time, and endeavoured to impress upon the minds of the Commissioners a belief that the deficiency in the bankrupt's effects was occasioned by losses in business". It was stated, that the average loss during three years and a half which he had been in trade, was at the rate of 8 per cent. His loss for the first two years was not near so great as during the succeeding 18 months. He had been selling various articles of trade at a very reduced price. There were, however, several articles, particularly cottons, which Jenkins had gained by. In a former estimate house- rent and servants wages were calculated: an estimate of £. 200 was, however, mentioned upon the present occasion, for servants and assistance. After an examination of near three hours, Jenkins presented a written calculation, signed by himself, wherein he estimated his loss during the first two years he was in business at <£. 8,835, and his loss for the last year and a half at. £. 6,628. The Commis- sioners warned him previous to signing this calcu- lation, to he accurate in what he swore to. On considering the estimate, the Commissioners were all of opinion that the bankrupt should be re- manded to prison; and he was accordingly con- veyed hack to his former confinement.. Fatal Instance of over Exertion.— A match of cricket was played near Totteridge, Herts, on Friday last, between two young men of the names of Gregg and Corderov, which was so well con- tested, that ill the first innings Gregg got 43 runs, and his opponent 45. Ijti the second innings Gregg wtis caught out, after gaining 32 runs. Corderoy had made seven runs in his second innings, when he hit the ball a short distance, and on hastening to save his wicket, lie fell down and expired. Attempt at Suicide.— On Sunday evening, at the Gloucester Coffee- house, Piccadilly, a Captain Colville, who lately arrived from Wiltshire, went into his room, stripped off his coat, and with a razor cut his throat, but not succccding in the first attempt to cut the wind- pipe, he changed the razor from his right to his left hand, and made a second effort; and not even then effecting his unhappy design, in vengeance against the right arm, which first held the razor, he cut the leaders across the bend of it, and, in the fury of his insanity, changed the razor to the right hand, and also lacerated his loft arm in the same part. The razor fell to the ground, and the blood flowing in every A ROBERT NIXON, BUILDER, WOBURN, Beds, HAVING taken and entered on the Premises lately occupied by Mr. THOMAS POPE, Car- penter and Joiner, of Woburn aforesaid, who has left tlie Country, returns his most grateful Thanks for • the liberal Encouragement he has received from his many Friends, and the Public in general, since his Commencement in the above Business, and humbly solicits a Continuance of the same; and hopes, by a strict Attention to the Interest of those who may honour him with their Employ, that he shall merit the Support of his Friends, and the Public. rr is uu- DiNosmeasuredand valued, on reasonable Terms, in all its Branches.

ALL the accounts we receive front the Conti- nent, though not official, speak so confidently of the defeat of the Austrians, and the capture of Ulm by the French, that there appears to be no doubt of the fact, however exaggerated the circum- stances may be which regard the general issue of that event. A series of very severe encounters succeeded each other from the 8th to the 12th, previous to the first action in the neighbourhood of Ulm, which did not take place till the ISth instant.— On that day, the enemy were unable to make any im- pression upon the fortress; nor were they more successful in the second assault, which was made on the day following. On the 16th the attack was renewed, when a most, desperate conflict took place. The Austrians displayed much bravery on this occasion, and se- veral times repulsed the enemy, after they had penetrated to the works that surround the fortress. In the afternoon, however, Bonaparte arrived in person with a reinforcement, and changed the fate of the day; and the enemy at length succeeded in carrying the works; but the town still remained in, possession of the Austrians.— Anlmperial officer, speaking of the action of this day, says, that • though the French were . ultimately successful in carrying the works, yet in the night General Mack was able to evacuate the place in perfect order, and the enemy had suffered so much, that for two days they made no effort to follow up their success. On the 19th, however, the decisive conflict took place, when Ulm fell, and the Imperial army was again defeated. The carnage is admitted on all hands, to have been dreadful; in the different actions between the Jllth and the 19th, the loss on both sides, in killed in d wounded, will amount to little short of A prison, on a very extensive sralf, is to be built immediately near Torr- Uoyal, on Dartmoor, about six miles from Tavistock. The prison and its courtlages, within the boundary wall, wii oocupy 15 acres of ground, iind contain 5000 pri- soners of war. This will be the future grand depot of prisoners from all the ports of Cornwall and Devon. According to the Rev. Mr. YVhithlaw's survey of Dublin, in the years 1798 and 1304, the popu- lation has been considerably reduced since the Union; at the former period, it amounted to 182, S70 souls; and in 180- 4, to 167,899.— In the former census the garrison was included, but not in the latter.— The inhabited houses in 1799 amounted to 16,401: and in 1804, to 15,645. The females exceeded the males by 20,247. < The first cast- iron road in Scotland is now con- structing at Ayr colliery, in the neighbourhood of that town, by which coals from the pit will be put on board ships at an expence of about a penny only per ton. This waggon road is upon a different construction from any in England, and is supposed to be on a better plan. Friday last a golden eagle was shot near Doug- lass, in East Lothian. Although apparently not quite full grown, its wings, when extended, mea- sured 7 feet 8 inches from tip to tip; the length of the body from head to taii nearly 3 feet, and its weight was about 9lb. It had been seen prowl- ing about the coast for near a week1 before. NEWMARKET THIRD OCTOBER, or HOUGH- TON MEETING, 1805. MONDAY, October 28. Mr. R.

West- Haddon, October 30th, 1805. M1 A better defence of the liberty of the press could not proceed from the pen of a subject, than the following by Gustavus III. King of Sweden. ' It appears to me ( says Gustavus), on atten- tively considering the subject, that the liberty of the press is not injurious in general, and that it cannot become dangerous but by the abuse of it, which sometimes is displayed.:— Abuses are the consequence of human frailty, which blends with the best institutions; and, if we must oppose those which are in themselves beneficial, through the 1 Icar of abuses which might be introduced, we should never establish any thing useful to the General C. ower's Swinle'y, 3 yrs old, 6st. 7lb dr public. j Mr. Andrew's Fathom, 3 yrs old, 6st. 61b dr ' In a disunited nation, divided by oppositions, ) Lo. rtl sir Harry Dimsdale, 5 yrs old, principles, and interests, as the Swedish nation has been, a subject cannot be always considered Mr. D.

These engagements are reported to have been unusually destructive to the French officers. Of those that have fallen are mentioned, Generals Murat, Matmont, and Dumonceau, Bondet and Grouchy; and General Vignolles is stated to have had both his legs shot off. It is extremely probable that these accounts are exaggerated, but such an enemy Europe has never La-' l to encounter; and strong as the confederacy is, if, by plunging through Austria, which is the heart of it, Bonaparte can disable the allies in one campaign, a peace with those allies may be speedily made— he will then be at our gates— his blas- phemous self- confidence, swollen to the uttermost, with halt a million of men ready to devote them- selves to the task of extirpating us, and with an insolent confidence of success diffused through the meanest ranks of his army— Englishmen, bt, ready for the combat; your subsidies, your allies, are not sufficient defence! arm and prepare against invasion! If the loss of r. few battles oil the Con- tinent can bring the enemy to your door, where is your fancied security? is it believed that the hi. sts of Alexander, and the incalculable number of the allies, are to overwhelm our opponent? No, we disparage ilot the bravery of all, or any of those nations— but who shall ensure the event of a campaign so disastrously begun? A vigour, a con- fidence, and a power of Generalship prevades the French army, of which it is awful to anticipate the possible effects.— On our own ground, list us be prepared to light those enemies; if disciplined as we ought to be, we shall repel them, formidable as they are: but if a thoughtless alid besotted spirit continue among the people; if they dream of security, because they have uniforms for parade, and muskets, of which ( hey imperfectly know the use, let us expect the scourge of our folly, for we shall deserve it."— Star. A Mail from Gottenburgh was received this morning. It contains an article from Stralsund, dated October 27, which affirms, that the joint Swedish and Russian armies, to the number o( 30,000 men, marched from that place and its neighbourhood, on the preceding day; their de- stination was supposed to be Hanover. On Monday an experiment was tried on the Queen's bastion, Portsmouth, by a party of artil- lery, with a view of ascertaining, by principles laid down, the possibility of throwing shells from a mortar, in a direct line, to an objcct, without its verging, which seems to be the grand arcanum. Five shells were thrown, two of which were in a direct line, and nearly struck the flag, which was placed about 500 yards off; but ' - a « judged, as is usual, the effect of < nance, and not by the direc- tion of the iugcrtiou table which was calculated to regulate it. Several artillery officers, and a great " number of spectators were present. It is understood that the subject of the Catholic claims will he again brought forward at an early period of the next sessions. The discussion, how- ever, will not be preceded by any petition from the Catholic body. That is deemed unnecessary, the Catholics having so recently stated to both houses the nature of their grievances, and the ob- ject. of their request.

Oriental Literature.— The most valuable col- lection of Eastern manuscripts ever brought to Europe by any individual is said to be that of Major Ouseley, which arrived by the late Bengal fleet. Besides Arabic, Persian, and Sanscrit luoks, ' amounting in number to nearly 1500) there are several port- folios of immense size, containing mythological paintings of the most ancient kind, splendidly illuminated, and prorured at a great expence from all parts of Hindoostan, Tibet, Tartary, China, Ceylon, Ava, & c. with idols of stone, metal, wood, and other materials. Many of the volumes are filled with botanical paintings, executed in the most accurate manner; vast col- lections of natural history and mineralogy; ori- ginal views and - drawings, taken on the spot, in various parts of India; with a cabinet of the most nre medals, gems, and other antiquities; a com- plete series of the coin struck by Mahometan princes since the rei>, n of Timour, with the armour, horse- furniture, swords, spears, bows, arrows, and all the weapons used in Persia, India, and other countries in the East; with various musical instruments, and several hundred tunes set to music by Major Ouseley, from the voices of Persian, Caslunerian, and Indian singers.— The Lords of the Treasury, in the most liberal manner, have exempted this valuable collection from the usual duties; and their example was followed by the gentlemen of the Custom- house and India- house, through whose hands it passed.— His situ- ation as aid- de- camp to the Nabob of Oude, and commander of his Highness's body guard, gave Major Ouseley such advantages in forming this collection as t'ew Europeans have ever enjoyed. His brother, Sir W. Ouseley, already possesses near 800 Arabick, Persian, and Turkish manuscripts. Westminster Sessions.— On Thursday last John Stewart was tried at these Sessions on a charge of maliciously throwing a glass bottle from the gal- lery of Drurv- lane Theatre, on the 8th of February last, whereby one person was dangerously wounded in the head, and another severely hurt. A variety of evidence being heard, substantiating the charge against the prisoner, Mr. Mainwaring addressed him at some length, on the serious nature and magnitude of the offence; and concluded bv sen- tencing him to be imprisoned one year in the house of correction.

The liquid, in this thin state, is to be laid on the wood w ith a soft brush. Repeat this process two or may not be productive of immediate, it will tend to the most useful effect. The expected discussion will, it is said, be opened by the same distin- guished personages who last sessions presented the petitions. As 30 men were lately working in a coal- pit, near Newcnstlt- upon- Tyne, the sulphureous air took fire, and they all perished : 26 of their wives assembled near the pit, two of whom miscarried from the fright, and one died in going home. Numbers of people daily assemble a little to the northward of Jarrow, in the county of Durham, to ? v iuiess the progress of a man who resides there as a labourer; he has dug a hole near a bank side, about four feet deep, the same in breadth, and bad reached eight in length on Saturday se'nnight.

Remedy for Cattle, zrho have filed themselves too full of young Clover.— Dr. Darwin, in his Zoono- mia, says, that he was informed by, he believes, the late Dr. Whytt, of Edinburgh, that of twenty cows in this situation, two had died, and that he had directed a pint of gin or whiskey, mixed with an equal quantity of water, to he given to the other eighteen; all of which eructed immense quantities of air, and recovered. This seems a much safer remedy than opening the stomach, which is fre- quently done with success; but requires a skilful hand.

THE Hamburgh Mail not having yet arrived, we are obliged to depend upon ihe reports which have been received from the enemy, for all information relative to not only the late engage- ments that have taken place between the Austrian and 1' reach armies, but also for the imperfect knowledge wc can gather, from their unconnected and confused accounts, of their present situation, and in what state they may remain for future ope- rations. As all the accounts we are possessed of come through the hands of the et. emy ( and it is indeed remarkable that we have had no other since the beginning of the war), we may be certain they are stretched to the very extremity of the truth, nor is there any doubt but they are stretched much further. There are too many concurring circum- stances, however, not to obtain belief that the Austrians have received a most severe blow; but in the position of TJlm, which is a very strong, though not a fortified place as it once was, the Austrians had great advantages, and from the steadiness of their valour it is impossible but the j French must have dreadfully suffered in forcingth'e \ post, and must, in a great degree, have been disabled from pursuing, with any activity, the ad- vantages of their victory. Report states their loss at 25,000 men in killed and Wounded. It is . next to impossible, too, that the whole of the Austrian army, which consisted of 84,000 men, could have been entit ely destroyed; for although after the */" ANTED immediately, A steady WOMAN, n as HOUSEKEEPER, who perfectly under- stands the Management of a .

Ibis action is said to have happened on the 83d. It is now ascertained,- that the Russian afmy, which has now joined the Austrian column under Genera' Kienmayer, on the Inn, amounts to. little short of 100,000 men, and as the French column opposed to it is very much inferior, even with every reinforcement that can be supposed to have- reach- ed it, the- ro'ult of a spirited and determined attack could hardly fail to be successful and deci- sive. Even the disasters that have happened, great as they are, do not discourage the hope, that the judicious direction and vigorous exertions of this combined ariny may be Sufficient to turn the current of success, or at least to retard its progress till the new resources of the Austrian monarchy are brought up, to restore the natural prepon- derancy of the allied arms. The following interesting communication re- specting the distances of the different places at and near the seat of war, may serve to illustrate the relative situation of the contending armies:— From Vienna to Munich there are three roads, the two principal of which, at this juncture, are those by the way of Brunau and Saitzburgh. From Vienna to Ens the distance is 105 English miles; from thence to Brunau on the Inn, the last Imperial Town, 105 miles; to Munich 85,; from Ens to Saltzburgh the distance is 100 miles; and from thence to Munich 85. Ge- neral Kienmayer has joined the Russians either at Brunau or" Saltzburgh; if at the hitter place, assistance might have been sent, if there had been time, to General Mack by. Lispruck in the Tyrol: this place is 60 miles from 1' unsen, very strong, and 30 from Kempten, which lies by Isneg and Wangen; fr<> m Lindau 45 miles; from Memmingen 20, and from that place to Ulm 30 miles. Ulm, by Memmingen to Lindau, is 75 miles, and by Ravensburgh 05; Rcgentz is from lindau 3f miles. From Ulm, by Frankfort and Cologne, to Amster- dam, the distance is 410 miles; and by way of l3asil to Pans 390 miles.— A person may with ease ' reach Amsterdam in four days, and Paris in tiiree days. Lord Mulgrave, his Majesty's principal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, has given official notice, that the blockade of the Spanish ports of Cadiz and St. Lucar, by tiie British squadrons, is so far relaxed, that neutrals may euter the said ports laden with provisions only. The Game haws.— A case of some interest came on, lately, at' the Public- Office* Union- streot, before ' 1'! F. vance, Esq. It was an information under the game laws; founded on 5th Ann, cap. 14th, which states— mat if any person shall keep a gun ( not being duly qualified) for the purpose of destroying game, lie shall forfeit the same, and be liable to a penalty of five pounds. The defendant was a foreigner, and, as it appeared in evidence, v. as out shooting in the woods, at Dulwich, on the 2d of September, when he fired at a pheasant. He was told tiiat he acted wrong; he, however, conti- nued his sport. In his defence, the defendant pleaded ignorance of any infringement of the laws, as he had taken out a licence. The informer, however, observed, that the defendant had been often cautioned, that he was not duly qualified. Ihe magistrate therefore informed him, that hav- ing been frequently cautioned, he had no right to plead ignorance, and the defendant was convictcd in the penalty of rive pounds. Mail Couch Robbery.— Rd. Walker, and Thos. Chester, were yesterday tried at the Old Bailey Sessions, for feloniously, receiving, in the citv of London, a large quantity of jewellery goods, which were stolen out of a mail coach ill the city of j Oxford, the property of Messrs. Pemberton and Son, of Birmingham.— Wm. Dobbins was convict- ed of the felony at the last Sessions for the city of Oxford, and sentenced to he transported for seven years, Wakelin, an accomplice, being admitted King's evidence, and on whose confession the two prisoners- were also tried. By the evidence of Lee and Duke, two servants of the prosecutor's, it appeared that the articles stolen were sent from Birmingham in May last-, directed for Mr. Pemberton in town, anrl that they never arrived at the place to which they were directed. The evidenee which chiefly went to criminate the prisoners was that of Christopher Wakelin, the accomplice. He stated that he was an extra guard to the mail coach, and that the driver of the coach who was convicted of the robbery at Oxford, brought the parcel to his house in Oxford, where it remained for six weeks, and that afterwards by his direction he carried it to the prisoner Walker's, who kept a hair- dresser's shop on Snow- hill, and that Walker and Chester, the two prisoners, dis- posed of the goods. Several witnesses were then called, who proved, that Chester and Walker had disposed of several parcels of the stolen articles, particularly to a Mr. lloby, a Jeweller, iullo'lborn; a Mr. Brogdon, in Barbican; and others,— The Jury found theiu bolli •— Guilty.

' Yesterday an order was sent off, from the Ad- miralty, for the expedition in the Downs to put to sea. The wind having shifted to the West, the armament has probably sailed. It has been aug- mented, and rendered still more complete, during the time which it has been delayed beyond the period originally fixed for its. sailing. Five trans- ports, laden with one hundred ammunition waggons, and other military stores, sailed from Portsmouth, on Wednesday, to join it. The troops, which are supposed to have sailed, consist chiefly of the detachments of the Guards, General Paget's brigade, General Moore's brigade, and the German legion under General Don. ft has been reported, for some days, that the following is the arrangement for its staff:— His Royal Highness the Duke of York, Commander- in- Chief; His Royal Highness the Duke of Cumberland, to the command of'the British cavalry, with two Lieutenant- Generals under him; and His Royal Highness the Duke of Cambridge, with seven Lieiitenant- Generals, and twelve Major- Generals, under him, to have the command of the Infantry. Other reports state, that the Duke of Kent will command the cavalry. The King, we are sorry to hear, labours under a severe cold; inconsequence of which, the Coun- cil intended to have been held yesterday was post- poned. Yesterday morning was married, at St. James's church, by the Rev.

On Tuesday morning last, between five and six o'clock, a most daring robbery was committed on the person of Mr. Benjamin Burbidge, shoe- maker, of Sympson, near Fenny Stratford, Bucks, at a place called No- man's- land, between Denby Hall and Shenley Inns The robbery was perpetrated by two men in short smock frocks, armed with large bludgeons, one of whom seized him by the collar, while the other rifled his pockets of thirty- five pounds seven shillings, being the poor sufferer's all, and which he was taking to pay his currier at Towcester fair. A person who is a resident of Finedon, in this county, has been convicted before a magistrate of having violently assaulted the keeper of the Oadby toll- gate, in Leicestershire. Upon his expressing contrition for the offence, he was fined in the mitigated penalty of 51. and discharged. On Tuesday se'nnight a farm- house and two smaller dwellings were burnt down at Holme, near Stilton. The fire is supposed to have been occa- sioned by incendiaries. Exchequer writs have lately been issued against several hatters in an adjacent county, for selling hats either without stamps, or with stamps under the proper value.— Milliners and others will be cautious to obtain a licence before they sell beaver hats, and to accompany those they may sell with a proper stamp. A few days since, a fine child, the daughter of ' Mr. Bowker, of Bridge- street, in Manchester, died suddenly, in consequence of having eaten a quan- tity of berries of a deleterious quality, which it is supposed she picked off a hedge.— A short time ago a boy of nine years of age, of Portsea, aLo died, from having eaten a similar kind of berries. At the last quarter sessions for the county of Cbcster, Thomas Newel), of Stockport, weaver, was convicted in the penalty of 401. for purchasing from a workman a quantity of embezzled cotton weft; and in consequence of his not being able to pay the fine, he was sentenced to six months im- prisonment to hard labour in the house of correc- tion, at Middleu ich.

Meteors.— On Tuesday evening, about six o'clock, an uncommon luminous appearance was observed near York, supposed to he produced by a meteor, which the cloudiness of the sky concealed from view. On Wednesday evening, after sun- set, the sky being unclouded, a meteor, resembling a ball of fire, was observed in the east, at an apparent altitude of about 20 degrees. In a moment it began to descend, emitting a train of light, and suddenly vanished, without reaching the horizon. The whole appearance did not occupy more than three or four seconds. At the time of this ob- servation it was about half- past five o'clock, by the Cathedral clock, but not more than 15 minutes after five by true time.— The same evening, at a Anecdote of Mr. Nield, the philanthropic Trea- surer to the Society for relieving persons imprisoned for small debts.— This gentleman had long been in the habit of receiving so many pennv- post letters, as to have given orders that none should be taken in, but such as were post- paid. His maid servant, however, being married oft", and another come in her place, lie one day found a penny- post letter, unpaid, lying upon his table; he hesitated whether he should not send it back to the post- office, but at last resolved to open it. What was his surprise, when he found it contained a bank- note for o£. 1000, without a word said from whom it came, or how it was to be disposed of. The direction on the outside was simply " James Nield, Esq." He car- ried it to the meeting of the above Society, which consisted of many of the first, characters, when they refused to receive it, as it was not even di- rected to him, " Treasurer ot' the Society for the relief of persons imprisoned for small debts." He insisted, however, that they should take it, as lie knew of no person who was likely to send him such a present. Advertisements were inserted in the papers, acknowledging the receipt, and stating to what purpose it had been applied; but no ac- count lias ever been received from what quarter it came! Murder.— Mr. J. Wigpnore, sen. farmer, , of Knovle, in Wiltshire, was found murdered on Thursday, on the road between Stockbridge and Winchester. He had been to Winchester with a load of cheese for the fair, and was returning on cning, when it is sup May, 1803, are desired, within fourteen Days from the Date hereof, to send an Account in Writing to Mr. Burton, Attorney, in Daventry, in order that the same may he liquidated and discharged; and those Creditors of Mr. William Adams who have executed the Deed ot Assignment, and have not yet received the first Dividend of ten Shillings in the Pound, are desired immediately to attend at the Ac- compting- House of Mr. Wm.'

After con- tinuing stationary for a short time, it disappeared, but a brilliant light continued in the sky, in the direction of the meteor, for some minutes after. A meteor was also seen in the neighbourhood of Beverley, at the same period of the evening ( as nearly as can be collected) as that at Helmsley. If it was the same meteor, its elevation must con- sequently have been very great, the distance be- tween these places being at least 40 miles. On Wednesday evening, about seven o'clock, K brilliant and most beautiful meteor was observed by many persons at Yarmouth. Those who saw- its whole progress, describe it as rising from the eastern horizon, and consequently appearing as if issuing from the sea, it seemed to reach the zenith, and then disappeared, leaving a luminous cloud of a large magnitude apparently fixed. Although there was a strong breeze from the S. E. at the time, this cloud disappeared by slow degrees, and was partly visible near fifteen minutes after the meteor burst. WESTMINSTER SESSIONS. Cruelly.— On Friday, Robert Reynolds, a soldier in one of the regiments of Guards, was indicted for assaulting, beating, and otherwise cruelly treating George and Elizabeth Reynolds, his own infant children. The case for the prosecution was very patheti- cally stated by Mr. Const, and the tenor of the evidence was as follows:— The prisoner, who is a soldier and armourer, had lodgings for himself and children in the kitchen of a house, No. 12, North- row, Parish of St. George's ill the West; and a Mrs. Elizabeth Fry proved, that on the morning of Sunday, September 22, as she was passing by the house where the prisoner lodged, she heard repeatedly the piteous crv of children. She went to the window of the cellar whence the voice proceeded, and, looking through, saw two children, apparently tied to a dresser, and crying lamentably; she tapped at the window, and, on enquiry of the- poor infants, understood that their father was a soldier, quar- tered at Portman- street barracks, and had beaten | and tied ihetD the re. She went immediately to the > h'-. nvWlf^- stiirl endeavoured to get in, with a view ! of complaining to the officers; but while she was \ disputing with the sentinel, who refused her ad- mi; ranee, two gentlemen came up, the one named Keeling, the other Bligh, to whom she told the story and tlicy accompanied her back to the house. They could not get into the cellar, as it was locked; but one of the gentlemen, by breaking a pane of the window, was enabled to get out a nail, or screw, that prevented the sash from being put down, and to enter through the. upper part of the window, and in the kitchen he found two children, the one a little girl about ten years of age; she was naked, standing upon a dresser, with her hands extended to the utmost stretch asunder, and tied to the top of the dresser, her feet tied together to the lowest part, and her back so lacerated with stripes as to present a most shocking spectacle. The boy was tied with his hands before him to the lower part of the dresser, and hid feet tied together to the foot of it. lie had marks also of severe beating, hut not so severe as the girl. Uags were fastened round their hands, to prevent them from untying the ligaments; and upon a table, at some distance from them, stood a large loaf, which had been cut, with the slice lying upon it, and a piece of beef about nine pounds weight. They mnied the poor infants, and the giiT, on being liberated, was so exhausted that she fainted away. They wore both conveyed to the workhouse, and placed under the medical gentleman in attendance. The apothecary and Dr. Jackson, who saw the children and gave their testimony, said that they considered the life of the girl, especially, in danger; that her back, about her shoulder blades, was so much contused and inflamed, he apprehended a suppuration, which might have brought on a fever extremely dangerous to her life. It was with dif- ficulty tlit children were conveyed to the work- house, where however, they recovered- in a rea- sonable time, but were not sufficiently well to attend, last. Session, to give their evidence on tbe prosecution of the prisoner. The poor children were also sworn, with the usual precaution towards their tender age and ca- pacity, end examined. They corroborated so much of the former evidence as concerned their situation; said their mother was dead, and that j their father had beaten and tied them thus, for absenting themselves from school; that they had eaten nothing after dinner on Saturday until found in the situation described on Sunday. The wretched prisoner, who, either from the stings of remorse, or some other caHse, appeared wasted to a skeleton, ottered, in his own defence, a statement in writing to the court, in which lie alledged that he had always treated his children tenderly, and gave them enough to eat; but that they frequently told him lies and staid from school, and that he had chastised them with a rattan, and punished them thus to delcr them from so doing m future. A man named Plant, a beadle, who lodged in the house with the prisoner, appeared to give evi- dence in his behalf, but only corroborated the evi- dence against him. The court, in charging the Jury, observed, that if they believed the prisoner, in correcting those childrui, had transgressed the reasonable bounds of severity, which parental discretion ou;: ht to limit, it would be their duty to find the prisoner guilty, wliiih they did without hesitation, and the prisoner was remanded, that the court might con- sider of the proper sentence to pronounce upon him. liini, a ball having passed through his body, w hich from its direction was evidently fired by sonic person on foot, l'lie body had lain some hours on the road, and was quite cold and stiff when found in the morning by a shepherd. His horse was at a little distance, in a field, liis body was removed to Stockbridge, where an inquest was taken by a coroner. Verdict, wilful murder, by some person unknown.—' Ihe deceased has left a widow and nine children.— There is yet no clue to discover the murderers, who did not effect their purpose, Mr. W.' s property being all found upon him. Shocking Catastrophe.— A woman named Ann Perroff, who resided in l'arker- street, Bloomsbury, Inning been missing for some time, search was made for several days without effect. Her chamber- door being fastened in the iuside, it was suggested by the neighbours that she might have made away with herself; accordingly, a constable was pro- cured, and the room door forced, syhen, shocking lo relate, she was discovered extended upon the floor, with her face downwards, quite dfiad; npon turning her she presented a most dreadful sight, nearly the whole of the flesh on her face being eaten off, as is supposed by the rats. It is ima gined she got inebriated, and was suffocated.— ' An inquest was held yesterday evening, when the Jury returned a verdict o(— Died by the visitation of God.

He was advised at last to try your LEAKE'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 tew Boxes more he found his Appetite and Strength gra- dually return, and is now as healthy and « toutasany Man 1 know.
