THE NORFOLK OR, • NORWICH - Vox,. XXXVI. Ready Money with Advertisements, PRINTED AND ' PUBLISHED BY W. STEVENSON AND J. MATCHETT, IN THE MARKET- PLACE, NORWICH. Sunday's Post, SATURDAY's Gazette announces the promotion of 27 Major- Generals to be Lieutenant- Generals in the Army, 18 Colonels to be Major- Generals, and 19 Lieut.- C'ol onels to be Colonels. On Friday, Lord Harrowby and suite sailed from Yarmouth on board the Tribune frigate, to proceed on his mission to the Court of Berlin. On Saturday evening, between five and six o'clock, Mr. Rough, the Messenger, was sent off with all possible speed, from Lord Mul- grave's Office to Yarmouth, with fresh dis- patches for Lord Harrowby. The Messenger had instructions to engage the first vessel he possibly could, to follow his Lordship with all expedition. The latest accounts received at the India House respecting the movements of Holkar state, that he had been prevented by the judicious arrangements of Col. Don from throwing himself into the fort of Deeg. His emissaries had succeeded in exciting some serious disturbance in Bundlecund, and many 1 of the principal natives were engaged to favour his retreat into that county; which, abound- ing with innumerable fastnesses, would have afforded him an asylum from his pursuers. Lord Lake has however, formed a chain of posts on the frontiers, which, it is hoped, • will prevent his entering that district. Sir Robert Calder received his order of re- call on the 4th of October, when he imme- diately demanded a Court Martial, and Lord Nelson, in the dispatch to- the Admiralty, transmitted his Letter. The Noble Lord softened the terms of the recall, by that ge- nerous attention to his feelings which is so congenial to his nature, instead of sending him home in a frigate, he is coming home in his own ship.

SIR,— The LORD Chief BARON having done me the honour to state his eldest Son's case, and recommended that my son should try your Ching's Patent Worm lozenges— as their cases were perfectly analogous— he did so last. June, and to my great happiness found immediate relief; and he has, by taking a few doses since, been cured of a merciless disease, CONVULSION FITS, which notwithstand- ing, the Prescriptions of the most eminent physicians for three years, sea- bathing, and every other means that could be thought of, wore him down to an alarming degree, and I dreaded the most fatal con fequences.— To his Lordship's humanity, and the use of your Lozenges, I impute my son's existence now, and if you require any further testimony, I shall always be ready to give it. And remain, Sir, your obedient servant, RICHARD MARNELL. Buckingham street Adelphi, Feb. 25.

THIS MEDICINE, which is so superior to all others 111 efficacy, certainty, and safety, should ever be given on the first attack of the dis- order ; for, if it be- not sufficient of itself to effect a cure ( as in intermittant and putrid fevers) it is al- lowed to be the best preparative for, and concomi- tant with, the Bark and other remedies, which the symptoms require. But as the genuine Powder has been often known te restore the patient, after its substitutes, and every other sebrifuge, have sailed, it ought to be tried even in the last extremity — Great benefits have been icrived from the Powder, in disorders thought beyond the reach ot 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 in the Hydrocephalus, or Water on the Brain. Sold only by F.

In the abovementioned month I had the misfortune to fall from the deck of the Ship into the hold, which entirely lacerated all the back of my hand, and brought' en a violent inflammation, that prevented my dressing or undressing myself.

BEAUTY & CLEASLINESS AMBOYNA TOOTH & MOUTH POWDER. ANTISCORllUTIC MEDICINE, pre pared by Mr. JOHN LIGNUM, Surgeon, at his Dispensary, in Manchester; for those who value health of body, vigour of mind, and a good consti- tution, of all other blessings the most desirable : if then nothing is fo valuable as health, of course no- thing is so abslutely necessay as due and striCt at- tention being paid to thos indispositions to which the greatest art of mankind are subject, namely scorbutic complaints, which by too many nrc conli- dered as trifling, and neglected till they have taken deep root In the constitution, and brought on a com- plication of maladies too shocking to relate. When a tainted or scorbutic habit has undermined the con- stitution, no longer has the blood ( which is the life) a due circulation, without which no longer can the body be preserved in health and vigour. The great number of persons who have and daily experience the superior properties of Mr. LIGNUM'S ANTIS CORBUTIC Drops, is the best testimony that can be adduced to their virtue: those drops penetrate into the most intimate parts ef their body, open the mouths of the minuter vessels, restore the natural perspiration, and promote all the fluid secretions in every stage of this destructive complaint, and are an absolute specific; and as a preventative, an altera- tive, and a purifier of the blood, they are not to be equalled. ' They may be taken without confinement, are pleasant in taste, and may be safely administered to children, or people of the most delicate constitu- tion : they strengthen the stomach, create a good ap- petite, and are an excellent restorative to decayed constitutions. From their perfect digestive quality, they prevent the accumulation of wind causing head achs, vapours, and other indispositions incident to the human frame. These Drops are sold in moulded square bot- tles, at us. and 4s. fid. One lis. bottle is equal in quantity to three 4s. 6d. ones.

It is the produce of a far foreign country, never imported but by the proprie- tor: and the first gentlemen of the faculty who use it, declare it a fine stomachic and bracer, and tor safety. proper for an infant. It eradicates the foulness the mouth is subject to, from diet, or a disordered stomach, and by its healing, purifying, and balfamic qualities frees the mouth of those disordcrs to which it is subject, fills up the Gums which the Scurvy has eaten away, and prevents a caries or rotteness in the Teeth. The proprietor is a Gentleman of Fortune, and will forfeit 1000I. to any lady or gentleman who uses the Drug as he directs, if the Teeth ach, or a Tooth decays.— Ask for the Amboyna Mouth powder, price 2s. 6d- per box.

GLORIOUS VICTORY. death of lord Nelson, London Gazette Extraordinary. Admiralty- Office, Nov 6, 1805. DISPATCHES, of which the following are copies, were received at the Admi- ralty this day at one o'clock, A. M. from Vice Admiral Collingwood, Commander in Chief of his Majesty's ships and vessels off Cadiz : Euryalus off Cape Trafalgar, Oct 22,1805. Sir — The ever to he lamented death, of Vice- Admiral Lord Viscount- NELSON, who in the late conflict with the enemy, fell in tlie hour of victory, leaves to me the duty of in- forming my Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, that on the 19th instant, it was communicated to the Commander in Chief, from the ships watching the motions of the enemy in Cadiz, that the Combined Fleet had put to sea; as they sailed with light winds westerly, his Lordship concluded their desti- nation Was the Mediterranean, and imme- diately made all sail for the Streights' en- trance, with the British Squadron, consisting of 27 ships, 3 of them 64' s, where his Lordship was informed bv Capt. Blackwood, ( whose vigilance in watching and giving no- tice of the enemy's movements has been highly meritorious), that they had not yet passed the Streights.. On Monday, the 21st instant, at day- light, when Cape Trafalgar bore E. by S. about 7 leagues, the enemy was discovered 6 or 7 miles to the eastward, the wind about west, and very light, the Commander in Chief immediately made signal for the fleet to bear up in two columns, as they are formed in order of sailing; a mode of attack his Lord- ship had previously directed, to avoid the inconvenience aud delay in forming a line of battle in the usual manner. The enemy's line consisted of 33 ships ( of which, 18 Were French and 15 Spanish), commanded in chief by Adm. Villeneuve; the Spaniards, un- der the direction of Gravina, Wore with their heads to the northward, and formed their line of battle with great closeness and correctness,: but as the mode of attack was unusual, so the structure of their line was new ; it formed a crescent convexing to the leeward—- so that,' in leading down to their centre, I had both their van and rear abast the beam ; before the fire opened, every alternate ship was about a cable's length to windward of her second a- head and a- stern, forming a kind of double. line, and appeared when on their beam, to leave a very little interval between them; aud this without crowding their ships. Admiral Villeneuve was in the Bucentaure, in the Centre, and the Prince of Asturias bore Gra- vina's flag in the rear; but the French and, Spanish ships Were mixed, without any. appa- rent regard to order of national squadron. As the mode of our attack had been previ- ously determined on, and communicated to the flag officers and captains, few signals were . necessary, and none were made, except to direct close order as the lines bore down.— The Commander in Chief in the Victory led the weather column, and Ihe Royal Sovereign , which bore my flag, the lee. The action began at twelve o'clock,- by. the leading ships of the columns breaking through the enemy's line, the Commander. in Chief about the loth slnp. from the van, the second in command about the 12th from the rear, leaving the, van of the- enemy unoccupied: the succeeding ships breaking' through, in all parts; astern of their leaders, and engaging the enemy at the muzzles of their guns ; the conflict was severe ; the enemy's ships were fought with a gallantry highly honourable to' their officers ; but the attack on them was ir- resistible, and it pleased the Almighty dis- poser of all events to grant to his Majesty's arms a complete and glorious victory : about three P. M many of the enemy's ships hav-. ing struck their colours, their line gave way: Admiral Gravina, with ten ships joining their frigates ' to leeward, stood towards Cadiz. The five headmost ships in their van tacked and standing to the southward, to windward' of the British line, were engaged; and the sternmost of them taken; the others went off, leaving to his Majesty's squadron Nine- TEEn ShipS of thb Line ( of which two arc first rates, the Santissima Trinidada and the Santa Anna) with three flag officers, viz., Admiral Villeneurve the Commander in Chief, Hon Ignatio Maria D'Aliva, Vice- Admiral, and the Spanish Rear- Admiral Don Baltazor Hidalgo Cisneros. After such a victory, it may appear unne- cessary to enter into- encomiums on the parti- cular parts taken by the several commanders; the conclusion says more on the subject than I have language to express; the spirit which, animated all Was the. same; when all exert themselves zealously in their country's service, all deserve that their high merits should stand recorded: and never was high merit more- conspicuous than in the battle I have described. The Achille ( a French 74) after having surrendered, by some mismanagement of the Frenchmen, blew up; 200 of her men were saved by the tenders. A circumstance occurred during the action, which so strongly marks the invincible spi- rit of British seamen, when engaging the • enemies of their country, that I cannot resist the pleasure I have in making it known to their Lordships: the Temeraire was boarded by accident or design, by a French ship on one side, and a Spaniard on the other : the contest was vigorous, but in the end the combined ensigns were torn from the poop, and the British hoisted in their place's. Such a battle could not be fought without sustaining a great loss of men.— I have not only to lament in common with the British Navy and the British Nation, in the fall of the Commander in Chief, the loss of A Hero, whose name will he immortal, aiid his me- mory ever dear to his Country ; but my heart is rent with the most poignant grief for the death of a friend, to Whom, by many years - intimacy, and a perfect knowledge of the vir- tues of his mind, which inspired ideas supe- rior to the common race of men, I was bound by the strongest ties of affection; a grief, to which even the glorious occasion in which he fell does not bring the consolation which per- haps it ought: his Lordship received a musket ball in his left breast about the middle of the ac- tion, and sent an officer to me immediately with his last farewell, and soon after expired. I have also to lament the loss of those ex- cellent officers, Capt. Duff, of the Mars, and Capt. Cooke, of the Bellerophon; I have yet heard of none others. I fear the number that have fallen will be found very great, when the returns come in; but it having blown a gale of wind ever since the action, 1 have not. yet had it iu my power to collect any reports from the ships. The Royal Sovereign having lost her masts except the tottering foremast, I called the Euryalus to me, while the action continued, which ship lying within hail, made my sig- nals, a service Capt. Blackwood performed with great attention; after the action I shifted my flag to her, that I might more easily com- municate my orders to, and collect the ships, and towed the Royal Sovereign out to sea- ward. The whole fleet were now in a very perilous situation, many dismasted, all shat- tered, in 13 fathoms water, off the shoals of Trafalgar; and when I made the signal to prepare to anchor, few of the ships had an anchor to let go., their cables being shot-, but the same good providence, which aided us through such a day, preserved us in the night, by the wind shifting a few points, and drift- ing the ships off the land, except four of the captured dismasted ships, which are now at anchor off Trafalgar, and I hope will ride safe until these gales are over. Having thus detailed the proceedings of the fleet on this occasion, I beg leave to congra- tulate their Lordships on a victory, which, I hope will add a ray to the glory of his Ma- jesty's crown, and be attended with public benefit to our country, I am, & c.

The fleet having been dispersed by a gale of wind, nO day has yet been able to be appointed for the above purpose." Euryalus, off Cadiz, Oct. 24. Sir— In my letter of the 22d I detailed to you for the information of my Lords Com- missioners of the Admiralty, the proceedings of his Majesty's squadron on the day of the action, and that preceding it; since which I have had a continued series of misfortunes, but they Were of a kind that human prudence could not. possibly provide against, or my skill prevent. On - the 22d in the morning, a strong southerly wind blew, with squally breezes; which however did not prevent the activity of the officers and seamen of such ships as were manageable from getting hold of many of the prizes ( thirteen or fourteen) and towing them off to the westward, where I ordered them to rendezvous round the Royal Sovereign, in tow by the Neptune; but on the 23d the gale en- creased, and, the sea ran so high that many of them broke the tow rope, and drifted far to leeward before they were got hold of again; and some of them taking advantage in the dark and boisterous night, got before the wind, and have, perhaps, drifted upon the shore and sunk: in the alteration of that day, the remnant of the combined fleet, 10 sail of. ships, . Who had not been much engaged, stood up to leeward of my shattered and straggled charge, as if meaning to attack them, which obliged me to collect a force out of the least injured ships, and form to leeward for their defence ; all this retarded the progress of the hulks, and the bad wea- ther continuing, determined me to destroy all. the leewardmost that could be cleared of the men, considering that keeping possession of the ships was a matter of little consequence, compared with the chance of their falling again into the hands of the enemy ; but even this was an arduous task, in the high sea- that was running. I hope, however, it has been accomplished to very considerable extent: 1 entrusted it to skilful officers, who would spare no pains to execute what was possible. The Captains of the Prince and Neptune cleared the Trinidada and sunk her. Cap- tains Hope, Bayntun, and Malcolm, who joined the fleet this moment from Gibraltar, had the charge of destroying four others. The Redoubtable sunk astern of the Swift- sure, while in tow. The Santa Anna I, have no doubt is sunk, as her side was al- most, entirely beat in; and such is the shat- tered condition of the whole of them, that, unless the weather moderates, I doubt whether I shall be abb to carry a ship of them into, port. I hope their Lordships will approve of what I ( having only in consider- ation the destruction of the enemy's fleet) have thought a measure of absolute necessity. I have taken Adm. Villeneuve into this ship; Vice- Adm. Don Aliva is dead. When- ever the temper of the Weather will permit, and I can spare a. frigate ( for there were only four in the action with the. fleet, viz. the Eu- ryalus, Sirius, Phoebe, and Naiad: the Mel-: pomene joined the 22d. and the Eurydice and , Scout the 23d) I shall collect the other' Flag Officers, and send them to England, with their flags, ( if they do not go to the bottom) to be laid at his Majesty's feet. There were 4000 troops embarked under the command of Gen. Coutamin, who was taken with Adm. Villeneuve, in the Bucen- taure. I am, ( Signed) C. COLLINGWOOD. Wm. Marsden, Esq It way assuage the bitterness of regret for his loss, to know, that Lord Nelson died, as he always wished to die. His death was precisely what he anticipated for himself. After the memorable battle, of the Nile, Capt. Hallowell presented to him a Coffin, made of the mainmast of the L'Orient, which blew up, with an attestation of the fact, and en- treated that the Noble Admiral Would order it to be preserved for his own body, when the fate of battle or the hand of time, might de- mand the debt of nature. The noble Admi- ral, on the day before he left London, called at, the house of ( Mr. Peddison, in Brewer- street, where the coffin is, and, with that familiar good humour which accompanied his address to all his people, desired him to have the attesta- tion engraved on the lid; as " he thought it highly probable that he should want it on his return." It was ever his expression in going into a battle, " Conquest, or Westminster Abbey!" and it was his peculiar good fortune to inspire the same sentiment into every follower, had he survived the glorious 21st of October, a grateful Sovereign would have given fresh proofs of his regard. Monument, Trophies, every device that can do honour to his memo- ry, is all his sovereign or his country can- now bestow. A Letter from an Officer on board the Eu- ryalus frigate, dated October 26th, says—' " I scarcely know whether, after so great a loss as the Nation has sustained in Lord Nelson, and every one of us a friend, added to the inevitable destruction of 19 fine prizes, I ought to congratulate you; but since the enemy, minus so many ships and we I trust not one, even in that there is matter to rejoice. Such a victory, and under circum- stance so disadvantageous to the attack, never was atchieved. Admiral Villeneuve, who is now at my elbow, can scarcely yet credit it; and his despair and grief exceed any thing I ever saw. To resist such an attack, and seconded as Lord Nelson Was, was vain. I did not leave the Victory till the shot were flying thick over her; and the last signal Lord Nelson made was such as cannot and never will be forgot— it was by telegraph- " That England expected every man would do his duty," I have time for no more— the Vessel is going, but I shall soon see, you, as I am to carry home the captured Admirals." Previous to the publication of the above Extraordinary Gazette, a Bulletin was issued early yesterday morning from the Admiralty- office, which was besieged with anxious en- quirers; it being known that important intel- ligence had been received Lieut. Lapinotiere, of the Pickle schooner, brought the important depatches; and. at noon the Park and Tower guns were fired. The Bulletin states, that previous to the action, seven sail of the line under Rear Ad- miral Louis, had been detached from the fleet, which reduced it to 27 sai of the line, & c.— The Victory which was lashed to the Santissima Trinidada, is said to have lost 160 men. The slaughter on board the enemy was immense. On our side the number of killed & wound- ed will probably prove to be above 1000. The Belisle was totally dismasted. The British Ships that suffered the most in the Action, were the Victory, the Royal Sovereign, the Belleisle; the Temeraire, and the Revenge. It is said, that Capt. Hardy had repeatedly asked Lord Nelson from the beginning of the aetioft, to change his coat, on which he wore the stars of the different Orders, but he would not take the time to do it. As soon as he received the fatal wound, he sunk into the arms of one of the officers near him. Mr. Scott, his Secretary, was killed near him ; he was shot through the head. Sharp shooters were placed in the main top of the Trinidada who kept up a perpetual fre into the quarter- deck of the Victory. The accounts from the fleet are full of the manifestations of the deepest sorrow amongst the crews of every one of our ships as soon as their irreparable loss was known. A brief abstract of the glorious Victory is as follows: Nineteen sail of the line struck— one blew up. Santis. Trinidada, 136 guns, sunk after striking— all perished. . Argonauta 84 guns, sunk after the action, in tow. Four sail of French or Spanish line, missing. Victory, 110 guns, Adm. lord Nelson killed— Mr. Scott, his Secretary, killed; and 200 men killed and wounded. Royal Sovereign, 110 guns, 400 killed and wound. . Not one of his Majesty's ships lost Thank God! . The wind having changed to a favourable point, the Expedition, consisting of the Cold- stream, the 3d Guards, the 4th, or King's own, the 14th, and 23d regiments, the 95th Rifle Corps, the German Legion, and. the Artillery, sailed from the Downs on Tuesday afternoon. The friendship between the Austrian and Russian Courts is happily unabated. It hav- ing been said in a Morning paper, that the Russians had been tardy in their advances, the Austrian Ambassador at our Court, Count Starhemberg, has publicly contradicted this statement, declaring that the Russians Were twelve days sooner at their posts than they had promised, or. could have been expected. The French, immediately after the surren- der of Mack, began to file off in great force towards the Inn and the Tyrol. The Porte has received the welcome intel- ligence that the Ottoman troops had obtained a complete victory over the Beys at Cairo. According to the barbarous practice in Tur- key. the heads of seven of the leaders' among; which was said to bn that of Elfi Bey, were publickly hung up on the Seraglio. Some Paris papers contain, an accouut. of the death of Our gallant countryman Captain Wright, in the Temple at Paris, which they most impudently assert to have happened from the commission of suicide. The Jour- nal de Paris says, that, after perusing the account of the defeat of the Austrians, in the. Moniteur, he cut his throat with a razor, The event being ' mentioned in several of the French papers, we are mortified to say that we cannot see any reason to doubt the fact, but his throat was actually cut with a razor; but we are well persuaded, that it was not by, himself !— What man can be so weak as to believe that a Briton, aud more especially it Captain of a man of war could be so pusillanimous or so silly as to put himself to death, - merely on account of the Austrians having been defeated, or from sensations ex- cited by perusing the ridiculous vapourings of the Moniteur. Admiral Collingwood has been appointed to an, with the same powers as Lord Nelson had. the command of the ships in the Mediterrane- The several ships of the line at Portsmouth aud Plymouth, are ordered to put to sea with- out loss of time, to reinforce Admiral Col- lingwood. Two Hamburgh Mails arrived this day. They state the important fact, that the King of Prussia has taken Possession of Hanover, in the name of his Britannic Majesty. It gives us great pleasure to be able to announce, that the intelligence received on Monday, of the Archduke Charles having obtained a victory over the French in Italy receives some- confirmation from the Ham- burgh papers. The Archduke is stated to have attacked the French at Verona, taken possession of the place, and made 4000 or" the enemy prisoners. . French and Dutch Journals, the former to the 31st ult: the latter to the 4th inst. have also been received. A letter from Berlin, dated the 22d of Optober, states, that 011 the 18th of the same month an escort of 600 French infantry; and 800 cavalry, was attacked by 6000 Austrian cavalry between Nordlingen and Dinkelsbihl, and were' beat by the superior force, with the loss of 50 pieces- of artillery, and a hundred ammunition Waggons. The Stutgard Gazette of October 17, states, that an enterprize undertaken by the French under General Ney on the 11th of October, in the afternoon, on the left bank of. the Danube, betWeen Ulm and Alpeck, had not succeeded, and that on the 18th the Austrians, had carried off a considerable quan- tity of baggage belonging to the French army. Government, this day received various dis- patches from thr Continent, all of them much more satisfactory than we had reason to ex- pect from the late French accounts. The advantage, stated above, 011 the authority of letters of the 22d, from Berlin, to have, been gained over the French, was achieved by the Archduke Ferdinand, This is a most impor- tant piece of intelligence, for great fears were entertained that his force had fallen a sacrifice in consequence of Mack's surrender. We have also to add, that Capt. Langford arrived at the Admiralty this afternoon, accompanied by a Russian Officer, bringing with him most important - dispatches from the Elbe. These dispatches bring a Treaty of Alliance which has been concluded between, this country and his Prussian Majesty, Whose army of Eigh- ty Thousand Men, was actually on its march against the common enemy,. when the dis- patches were sent off". . The Emperor of Russia had been to Ber- lin to hold, a conference with his Prussian Majesty. The same Emperor is hurrying to the scene of action, at the head of an army of Sixty Thousand Men ; and his Im- perial Brother of Germany is also marching at the head of another army. The van guard of the second Russian array, amounting to 20,000 men, had arrived about the middle of last mouth in Bohemia, and formed a junction, we have no doubt, with the troops on the Inn, in a few days after- Indepedent of tye immense armies which were pouring down through Prussian Poland- and Gallicia, from the Russian territories,, a con- siderable reinforcement to the troops already- landed in Pomerania, were expected to arrive from Revel at Wolgast in the same' province. Ten thousand Swedes were also expected to advance through Mecklenburgh into Hanover, permission having been requested of the Go- vernments of both the dutchies to that effect. A Messenger from Gottenburgh reached the Secretary of State's Office, this morning. We are happy to hear, from respectable autho- rity, that lie is the bearer of a TreATy of . quiNTreplE alliAnCE between the Em- perors of AUSTIUA and RUSSIA, & the Kings, of englAnd, PrUSSIA, and. SweDen, to which the, signatures of all the contingent parties have been already affixed. His Majesty's ship Egyptienne has captur- ed a vessel laden with naval stores, Which has arrived in Baltimore harbour, Ireland. She was one of a fleet of 20 sail, all laden with naval stores from Bilboa, for Rochefort, under convoy of a corvette, which escaped, but AL- most THE WHOLE Of HER COnVOY WERr destroyeD.— This intelligence has arrived by a letter from Cork, this day. There is but little to add to the simple and most impressive account of the action render- ed by Adm. Collingwood. Unfortunately the boisterous gales . which followed the battle may deprive us of some of the benefits with which it was fraught; but that is the slightest consideration in the event. British honour is satisfied— and a blow is struck at the com- bined naval force of France and Spain by an inferior fleet, ( on the very day when Mack's army were piling their arms at the feet of their conqueror,) which they will not be able sud- denly to recover.. One general and deep lamentation prevail- ed through the metropolis for the loss of Lord Nelson; when the intelligence of his death was sent down to the King and Royal Family at Windsor, they were all most deeply affected.- Government have given directions that immediately on the arrival of the body of Lord Nelson, it shall be brought to London under a military escort, and after being laid in state in the Prince's Chamber, in West- minster, be interred In the Abbey, with grand : funeral honours at the public expence. A public mourning is expected to take place on the arrival of the body. A general illumination was expected las night in honour of tlie victory, but time did ' not permit the necessary preparations. A ge- neral illumination will take place this night. Capt. Tyler, of the Tonnant, was wound ed, but not dangerously. From our Correspondent at Dover, The Expedition' sailed ou Tuesday after- noon. More transports are expected here daily, when a further embarkation will take place.

N. B. Letters addressed to the Patentee, Norwich, or Mr. James Ball, No. 13, Marine Crescent, Dockhead- road, Bermondsey, l. ondon, will be duly attended to. In our preceding columns will be found the official accounts of the glorious VICTORY obtained over the Combined Fleets of France and Spain, off Cadiz, 0n the 21st, of Oc- tober last; though most, dearly purchased in the loss of our beloved countryman, LORd nELSON, TO these most- interesting and affecting details we are enabled to add the following authentic particulars respecting the departed HERO of the Nile, who drew his first breath IN this county, who lived and conquered for his country; glory, and who perished in her cause ! When Lord Nelson found that by his skil- ful manoeuvres he had placed the Enemy in such a situation that they could not avoid an engagement, he displayed the utmost anima- tion & his usual confidence of victory ; he said to Captain Hardy, and the other Officers, who surrounded him on the quarter- deck, " Now they cannot escape us; I think we shall at least make sure of 20 of them. I shall probably lose a Leg, but that will be " purchasing a Victory cheaply." - About two hours before the. close of the Action, his Lordship received a wound in the shoulder from a musket- Ball which was fired from the tops of the Santissima Trinidada with which ship he was closely engaged. The ball pe- netrated his breast, and he instantly Fell; he was immediately carried below, and the Surgeons pronounced, the wound mortal; His Lordship lived about an hour, during the whole of which time he remained, perfectly collected, and displayed the same heroic mag- nanimity in his death, that had marked his conduct in every Action of his glorious Life.— A few minutes before he expired he ordered Captain Hardy to be called to him ; when the Captain came, he asked how many of the Enemy's Ships had struck; the Capl. replied that as nearly as he could ascertain, Fifteen Sail of the Line had struck their Colours. his Lordship then, with that fervent piety which as strongly marked his character as skill and courage, returned thanks to the Almighty ; then turning to Captain Hardy, he said, " I know I am dying. I could have wished to survive to breathe my last upon British ground, but the will of God be done." In a few moments he expired !!! Thus fell one of the best and bravest Men that ever graced the British Annals ; and thus ended the life of Horatio, Lord Nelson—- a life, that from the twelfth year of his age, has been indefatigably devoted to the public service. Upon such an occasion our readers will ex- cuse us for indulging oar feelings, and paying a short tribate to the Memory of LORD NELSON. This unrivalled ornament to the naval ser- vice of Great Britain, was born at Burnhain Thorpe, in this county, on the 29th of Sept. 1758. He entered the service at an early period of his life, was made a Lieutenant in 1777, and a Post Captain in 1779 He was Engaged in 124 actions with the enemy, in all of which his bravery and skill were con- spicuous. He was always as forward as pos- sible in action. He lost one eye at Calvi, in Corsica, and one arm at Teneriffe, and on all occasions proved that he thought his body as well as his mind were the property of his country. But his piety and hu- manity, were, as distinguished as his courage and his judgment. In the memorable battle of the Nile, which will be. recorded in the annals of mankind till the human race shall be wholly extinct, knowing that the wounded of his own ships would be taken care of, he bent his first attention to those of the enemy, He established a truce with the Commandant of Aboukir and through him made a com- munication to the Commandant of Alexan- dria., that it was his intention to allow all the wounded Frenchmen to be taken ashore to proper Hospitals with their own surgeons to attend them, a proposal which was assented to by the French and carried into execution ' the following day. . Thus, amidst all the glow of patriotism and the exultation of vic- tory, the Hero did not, lose sight of humanity and a sense of compassion for his Suffer- ing fellow creatures; but what still gives a nobler lustre to his exalted character, he did not forget his duty and gratitude to that Being who had gifted him with his high faculties, and whose Providence had directed him to such a scene of glory to. himself and service to his country, and the general . cause of man- kind. On the morning after the victory, he issued the following memorandum to the dif- ferent Captains of his squadron, which deserves to be recorded in letters of gold, as a proof of pious gratitude, and an example to all who may be benefited by divine favour, und which appears to have been followed by Adm. Col- lingwood, on the present occasion. " Vanguard, off the Mouth of the Nile, Aug. 1, 1798. " Almighty God having blessed his Majesty's arms with victory, the Admiral intends returning Public Thanksgiving for the same at two, o'clock this day, and he recommends every Ship doing the same as soon as convenient. [ To the respective Captains of the Squadron.] Such were the splendid talents,, the heroic energy, the elevated piety, and the unparal- leled services of this distinguished man ; and as his death must be considered as a national loss, it ought to be the. subject of a general mourning. Lord Viscount Nelson was in the 43th year of his age, and is succeeded in his titles and estates by the Rev. Dr. Nelson, Preben- dary of Canterbury, his Lordship's only brother. On the receipt of the important news here, 011 Thursday, the bells in the several parishes were raised, and they continued ringing and firing throughout the day; but all the joy that would have arisen from the victory was wholly absorbed in sorrow and regret for the death of Lord Nelson.— Glorious and gallant Shade of our Nelson, farewell! . Many are the tears which have been shed in grief for thy me- mory, and admiration for thy last atchieve- ment! For ages to come, may his name prove a talisman of inspiration to the heart of every British seaman, and every British sol- dier, in every clime, and in every future com- bat with our inveterate enemies!.. We have happily in St. Andrew's Hall, an excellent portrait of this Great Man; and we. should rejoice to see a statue erected by pub- lic subscription, to his immortal memory, and placed in some eligible situation in this his native county.

THE disastrous accounts received from the. Continent last week are fully confirm- ed by the arrival of Paris papers to the 20th ult. and Dutch to the 2d inst, received on Sunday. The brief summary of the 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th, Bulletins of the Grand Army, is, that on the 13th ult. Marshal Soult having taken Memmingen with 6000 prisoners, and the Austrian army at Ulm being completely surrounded by the other French divisions, there capitulated in Ulm, on the 19th, with General Mack thirty- three thousand Austrians, delivering sixty pieces of cannon and fifty stands of colours to their conquerors; that another Austrian di- vision under General Werneck and seven Generals, surrendered near Nordlingen, on the same day, to Prince Murat; that the escort of the heavy baggage of the Austrian army, with the baggage itself of course, were cap- tured, on the 18th, near Bopfingen, by Ge- neral Fauconnet, and that upon the whole out of 100,000 men, composing the Austrian army in Bavaria, 60,000 have been taken prisoners, with their whole park of artillery and 200 pieces of cannon. Bonaparte's own as- sertion is, that his own loss in these atchieve- metits amounts only to 1500, rapid marches and brilliant manoeuvres having been substi- tuted for battles. The Bulletins further say, that of the army Of 84,000 men, under the command of the Archduke Ferdinand and General Mack, not more than 210,000 men remain to Austria. It is added, that General Murat pursued the Archduke Ferdinand, and took 3000 prisoners from his retreating division. It. does not ap- pear by these Bulletins that there was any hard fighting between the two armies; Mack and the Austrian Generals are stated to have surrendered without any desperate conflicts. [ In the capitulation of Ulm, General Mack agreed, that if not relieved by an Austrian or Russian army by the 25th at Midnight, his forces should march out prisoners of war— the men to be sent to France, the Officers to Austria on parole. Without waiting;, however, till the stipulated term had expired, General Mack agreed to new articles, by which, in consequence of Marshell Berthier de- claring, upon his honour, that the positions of the French army were such as to render any assistance to Ulm impossible, it was stipulated that the Aus- trians shouid march out on the 20th, ( except Mar- shal Ney's corps) which enabled Bonaparte to pro- ceed to Augsburg on the 21st, to head the army proceeding to the Inn ] The Emperor took his station, from two o'clock in the afternoon to seven in. the even- ing, of the 20th of Oct. on the heights near Ulm, where the Austrian prisoners marched past him. The French army were posted on the heights. The Emperor, surrounded by his life Guards, sent for the Austrian Gene- rals and kept them with him until their troops had filed off. He treated them with the ut- most. distinction. There were present besides the General in Chief Mack, eight Generals, and seven Lieutenant- Generals. The first column of the prisoners at Ulm have just begun its march for France. The following is a statement of the total of the prisoners, with their present situation :— 10,000 at Augsburg, 33,000 at Ulm, 12,000 at Donawerth, and 12,000 already on their march for France. The 9th Bulletin states " that the Emperor Napoleon addressed the Austrian Generals, whom he sent for, as their army were filing past him in the following terms:—" Gentle- men, your master carries on an unjust war. I tell you plainly, I know not for what I am fighting; I know not what can be required of me. It is not in this army alone that my re- sources consist, tho' were this the case, I should be still able fo make head with it; but I shall appeal to the testimony of your own prisoners of war, who will speedily pass through France; they will observe with their own eyes, the spirit which animates my peo- ple, and with what eagerness they flock to my standards. This is the prerogative of my nation, and my condition. At a single word, 200,000 volunteers crowd to my standard, and in six weeks become good soldiers; whereas your recruits only march from com- pulsion, and do not become good soldiers but after several years. I would give my brother, the Emperor of Germany, one further piece of advice— let him hasten to make peace. This is the crisis, when he must recollect all states must have an end: The idea of the approach- ing extinction of the dynasty of Lorraine must impress him with terror, I desire nothing up- on the Continent. I want ships, colonies, arul commerce; and it is as much your inter- . st as mine that I should have, them." M. Mack replied, ' that the Emperor of Germany had no wish for war, but was compelled to it by Russia.' 4 If that be the case,' said the Emperor, ' then you are no longer a Power.' " Most of the Generals have confessed how disagreeable this war was to them, and how much they were affected to see a Russian army in their country. They rejected a blind system of politics which would bring into the centre of Europe a people accustomed to live in an un- cultivated country and in the field, and which, as well as its forefathers, might once take a fancy to settle in a milder climate. The Em- peror has treated Lieut.- Gen. Klenau ( whom he knew as commander of the regiment of Wurmser) with much civility, as also the Lieut- Gens. Ginlay, Gettersheim, Ries, and the Prince of Lichtenstein, & c. comforting . them in their misfortunes, and telling them that the. war has its chances, and that they who had frequently been Conquerers, might be conquered in their turn." , The tenth Builletin, dated Augsburg, Oct. 22, state's, that on the capitulation of Gen. Wer- neck, near Nordlingen, Prince Ferdinand, With a body of 1000 horse; and a portion of artillery, had taken to flight.: he, threw him- self into the Prussian territory, and took the route by for Nuremberg. . Prince Murat followed on his heels, and succeeded in overtaking him; which gave rise to a battle on the road between Furth and Nuremberg, in the night of the 21st. All the rest of the park of artillery, and all the baggage, without exception, were taken. The Chasseur's a Cheval of the Imperial Guard covered themselves with glory; they overthrew every thing which opposed them; they | charged Mack's regiment of Cuirassiers, The march of Prince Murat from Albeck to Nuremburg is truly astonishing. Though constantly engaged, he gained on the enemy, who were two days march before him. The result of that prodigious activity was the taking of I6OO waggons, 50 pieces Of cannon, and 10,000 men, including those capitulated with Gen. Werneck.— Eighteen Generals have laid down their arms. The Emperor has made a present to the Ba- tavians of 20,000 Austrian fusils for the army and the National Guards, he has also made a present to the Elector of Wirtemberg of six pieces of Austrian cannon. During the ma- noeuvre of Ulm, the Elector of Wirtemberg was, for a moment, apprehensive for his Elec- tress and family, who then went to Heidelberg, and he disposed his troops to defend the heart of his States. The Austrians are detested by all Ger- many, well convinced that, without France, Austria would treat them like its hereditary States. No idea can be formed of the mi- sery of the Austrian army— they are paid in notes, by which they lose forty per cent. Our soldiers pleasantly call the Austrians ' paper soldiers'. They are without any cre- dit. The House of Austria could not any where borrow 10,000 francs. The Generals themselves have not seen a piece of gold for ; several years. The English, when they heard of the invasion of Bavaria, made a j little present to the Emperor of Austria, which has not rendered him more rich ; they have engaged to remit him the 48 millions which they had lent him during the last war. If this be an advantage to the House of Aus- tria, it has already paid pretty dear for it. A Bulletin from the Army of Italy states, that on the 18th ult. an attack was made 011 the bridge of the old Castle of Verona ; the wall which blocked up the bridge in the mid- dle was battered down, and 21 companies of light troops, with the first division, crossed to the other side of the Adige, The AuS- trians fought with the utmost obstinacy till dark.— The Bulletin adds, that they were driven from all their positions, and lost 1300 killed and wounded, and as many prisoners. It was reported in Germany on tbe 22d, that the Emperor of Germany has demanded a cessation of hostilities, and that Bonaparte replied be would consent, provided the Em- peror sent back the Russians, relinquished his alliance with England, and surrendered Venice and the Tyrol to France. " Recollect, that the most remote posterity will remark the conduct of each of you on this memo- rable day. Your progeny, five hundred years hence, who may place themselves under those eagles around which we rally, will know in detail every thing that your respective corps shall at- chieve to morrow, and the manner in which your courage shall confer on them eternal celebrity. This will consitute the perpetual subject of their conversation ; and, from age to age, you will be held up to the admiration of future generations. " Soldiers, if I wished only to conquer tbe enemy, I should not have thought it necessary to make an appeal to your courage, and your attachment to the country and to my person ; but merely to con- quer him is doing nothing worthy either of you or your Emperor. It is necessary that not a man of the enemy's army shall escape; and that that Go- vernment, which has violated all its engagements, shall first learn its catastrophe by your arrival under the walls of Vienna; and that, on receiving this fatal intelligence, its conscience, if it listens to the voice of conscience, shall tell it, that it has betray- ed both its solemn promises of peace, and the first of its duties bequeathed by its ancestors, with the power of forming the rampart of Europe against the eruptions of the Cossacks. " Soldiers, who have been engaged in the affairs of Wertingen and Guntzburg, I am satisfied with your conduct. Every corps in the army will emu- late you, and I shall be able to say to my people— " Your Emperor and your army have done their duty." Perform yours, and the 200,000 conscripts whom I have summoned will hasten, by forced marches, to reinforce our second line. October 18. " NAPOLEON." " By order of the Emperor and King, the Ma- jor- Gen. of the Grand Army, " BERThiER." Thursday morning, at five o'clock, the steam corn mill, at Attercliffe, was discovered to be on fire. The flames burst through the windows, and raged with such destructive and inextin- guishable fury, that nothing could be saved. The roof fell in about six o'clock. All the grain, machinery, & c. See. were consumed. The loss must be very great. The French prisoners of war confined at Norman Cross, it appears, have of late been very successful in making their escape; several of them have, however, been retaken. on the 26th ult. seven broke through a large hole which they had cut in the wood ; but on the next day they were discovered by a Serjeant and corporal of the Durham Militia, who succeeded in securing two of them, who proved to be a French Naval Captain, and a Midshipman. On Monday two more were taken in Uffington Thicket; the. other three are still at large. On Tuesday morning three men were discovered loitering about on Fries- ton shore, by a fisherman, who seized and conducted them to Boston, whence they had escaped on the 23d ult. IMPERIAL PROCLAMATION. " Head- Quarters, at Elchingen, near Ulm, Oft. 2t. " Soldiers of the Grand Army,— In 15 days we have made a campaign. What we proposed to ourselves has been accomplished. We have driven the troops of the House of Austria from Bavaria, and established our Ally in the Sovereignty of his estates. The army, which with so much ostenta- tion and imprudeuce came upon our frontiers, is now destroyed. But of what importance is this to England ? her end is fulfilled. We are no longer at Boulogne, and her subsidy will be neither more nor less. Of 100,000 men which composed this army, 60,000 are prisoners. Tbey will go and replace our conscripts in the labour of our fields 1 Two hundred pieces of artillery— all the park— 90 stand of colours, and all the Generals are in our power. There has not escaped from this army more than 15,000 men. Soldiers, I had announced to you a great battle, but thanks to the bad com- binations of the enemy, I have been able to pro- cure the same advantages without running any ha- zard ; and what is without example in the history of nations, we obtained these great results with the loss of only 1500 men hars de combat. Soldiers, this ' success is owing to your unbounded confidence in your Emperor, to your patience in bearing fa- tigues and privations of every kind, and to your rare intrepidity. But we do not rest here. You are impatient to commence a second campaign, the Ruffian army, which the gold of England has transported from the extremity of the universe, is about to experience the same fate. This attack more especially belongs to the honour of the in- fantry. The question is now put for the second time, which has already been decided in Switzer- land and Holland— whether the French infantry is the first or second in Europe ? There are 110 Gene- rals there in the conflict, with whom I can acquire any glory. My effort will be to obtain victory with the smallest possible effusion of blood.— My soldiers are my children. NAPOLEON." Address of the Emperor to his Soldiers. The evening before the surrender of Ulm, the Emperor issued the following Address. " Soldiers— A mouth ago we were encamped on the shores of the Ocean opposite to England; but an impious league compelled us to fly towards the Rhine. It is but a fortnight since we passed that river, and the Alps of Wirtemberg, the Nec- ker, and the Danube, aud the Lech; those cele- brated barriers of Germany have not retarded our march a day, an hour, or an instant. Indignation against a Prince whom we have twice re- seated on his throne, when it depended entirely on our pleasure to hurl him from it, supplied us with wings. The enemy's army, deceived by our manoeuvres, and the rapidity of our movements, is completly turned.— It now fights only for its safety. It would gladly embrace an opportunity of escaping and returning home ; but it is now too late. The fortifications which it erected, at a great expence along the Iller, expecting that we should advance through the passes of the Black Forefl, are become useless, since we have approached by the Plains of Bavaria. " Soldiers,— But for the army which is now in front of you, we should this day have been in London ; we should have avenged ourselves for si centuries of insults, and restored the freedom of the seas. But bear in mind, to- morrow, that you ' are fighting against the allies of England; that you have to avenge yourselves on a perjured Prince, whole own letters breathed nothing but peace, at the moment when he was marching his army against our Ally ; who thought us cowardly enough to suppose, that we would tamely witness his passage of the Inn, his entry into Munich, and his aggres- sion upon the. Elector of Bavaria. He thought We were occupied elsewhere; let him, for the ' third and last time, learn, that we know- how to be pre- sent in every place where the country has enemies to combat. ," Soldiers— To- morrow Will be an hundred times more celebrated than the day of Marengo.

DIED.— At Mount Pleasant, in the vicinity of Dublin, Dean Kirwan, the celebrated preacher. His disorder was a fever, which carried him off after a few days illness. The numerous charitable institutions of that city will long feel and lament his loss. Many of them owe their existence and pros- perity to his unparalleled exertions, where, regard- less of his infirm state of health, to use the language of Mr. Gratton, " in feeding the lamp of charity he almost exhausted the lamp of life."— At Bath, aged 95, Rev.

PRINTEr Can hold no longer, but must speak my mind. I know that hundreds of men, such as I, think as I do, but nobody says so. Why should not 1? I mean as concerning the Mildew. And I think, that they that write about it know no more than I do; which is, that ' tis just as please God. I must tell you all I have heard about it, as first one thing, then another come in my way. Our newspaper of the 30th of March last, both pleased me at first sight, and puzzled me when I come to reading, so as nothing could be like it, more than any one as ever I remember. There was a fine letter in it from a fine spoken man, who, they tell me ( but that may be a mistake) is Secretary to the Agricultural Society. It was all about the Mildew— Aye! Aye ! says I, as soon as I heard 0n it, if that there Society that do so much good, have taken the matter in hand, and a Sir Joseph have made a whole book about it, I'll warrant ye, the business will soon be rightsided. We shall soon have done thumping and bumping the straw all to mammocks, and getting ten times more chaff than corn after all. And that's a main matter to me, Mr. Printer, that am a plain little hard- working farmer of the old sort, standing at a high rent. So I lets me down to read it very ear- nestly— for I would have you know that I can read; and pretty runnably too. I soon found that the Mildew is a fungus ; and then I read about pores and glumes, and how some of these here things germinate, and some of them are enveloped, and how this thing is parasitic, and cellular, and how something or other, but I don't know what, has a central position. All this, Mr. Printer, I do assure you, I have carefully wrote, word for word, and letter for letter, out in the paper, for I am sure, if I had pretended for to remember it, I should have made such blundering work, that the gentleman would never have known his own fine words again. Surely, surely, says I, this can have nothing to do with husband- ry— this can't be meant for such as I. Why ' tis Latin ! My poor old schooldame, I well remem- ber, when we came to a cramp word, used to tell us it was Latin, and bid us skip it. And so I was going to do with this. Howsomever, the Gentle- man said that it was all for the. instruction of farmers, and " particularly" of those who had no means of learning such things but by a weekly newspaper— which is exactly my case. So I went boldly all through, from great A to ampersand as the saying is; but, for the life of me, I could make out no more than what I have said, except that the fungus is first orange- coloured, and after- wards chocolate- coloured; but not one word about mending its complexion. I was looking sharp to be told how it comes about, and what is the rea- son of it, and when it is likely to come, and how it may be stopped ; but there is nothing of this sort, but the old story of the barberry- bush, which my old Grandmother used to talk of above 50 year ago, before ever Agricultural Societies were dreamed of; so there I got no new wrinkle, as they say— You understand me, Mr. Printer. And yet the Gentleman tells us again, at the last, that " all farmers ought to peruse this, as being of infi- nite importance ;" that they should all know about this same orange- coloured, chocolate- coloured, enveloped, parasitic, longitudinal, impersorate, cellular fungus which germinates in a central position, 0n pores and glumes. If it be so, quoth I, they must be a deal cuter than I, or they will read to special little purpose. So in all this puzzle, what should I do ? I takes my hat and stick, and walks over the green to our Parson. He goes partners with me and two more neighbours in the papers, and his turn is next to mine — Mayhap you may know him, Mr. Printer— Parson Sly — as clever a man, and as willing to give a neighbour advice, or do him a kindness, and a merry humoursome man too as any in the hundred of M d, to go no further. So I thought I would e'en ask him about it, and I gave him the paper, and put my thumb 0n the place.—- Let's see, Sam, says he, let's see— and he puts on his barnacles, and begins to read; looking very grave, and rub- bing and scratching his bald pate, and screwing up his face, and curling his forehead, and seeming to be right on in a puzzle and a quandary. At last he threw down the paper, and said— Neighbour Sam, says he, these here things are out in your way and mine ; what the Gentleman means I can- not conceive, but I dare say he is a very learned Gentleman, and a famous bottomist — But says I, I have been thinking of writing to the Printer to get all this explained— Let that alone, says he, I am afraid you would make but a poor hand on't. Howsomever, let's wait and see the upshot of the business. Well, Sir, not long after comes Mr. Sly, and. tells me that he has been enquiring about this bu- siness, and has heard from two or three very great agriculturists ( not farmers, Mr. Printer; no! not farmers) and had even read it in two or three places in print, that the Societies had found out, that Mildew always comes in cold and wet summers. — Now, says he, Sam, this is something to go upon, and between the two accounts we may come to some certainty about it. Surely no sum- mer was ever fitter for making proof of it than this. Till now very lately we have had nothing but cold and wet weather— we ought certainly to have had a lamentable Mildew. I determined to watch my wheat very closely. All the month of June, which they say is the most ticklish time, I was at it early and late; but not a single spot did I see, either of orange- colour or of chocolate- colour ; but I faw some yellowish stripes, where the land had been moist in winter. Oh, says I, there it is ! As sure as a gun that is a central position, and the mischief is coming! Howsomever, after all, harvest is come, and lo ! and behold I of all the five- and fifty years that I have been concerned, man and boy, : in shearing wheat, I never did once see the cosh fuller, nor the straw cleaner, nor more boke to the acre, no nor, I day say, more bushels to the acre neither. What a strange affair is this ! Being now more puzzled than ever with all the " useful and important things" I have learned about the Mildew, I went to the Parson again. He laughed and seemed mightily tickled with some joke I did not understand, and said — Sam, says he, now is your time ; print a string of Que- ries, it is the agricultural fashion— The Board of Agriculture did so when it was consulted by the Parliament— the Societies do so— and the Secre- tary, who has puzzled us so confoundedly, did so in his second letter. Give him a quid pro quo. Print your queries. That I would with all my heart, ( says I, if I knew what either of those things is. Why, says he, a query is any question that happens to come into your head, and quid pro quo is Latin, and means a question for a query; which, in the present case, for what I see, may be a very fair answer. Why then so I will, says I, for I am sure I can do something in that way. Aye, aye, do so, fays he, and bring your work to me when you have done, and I will look it over, and mend the spelling, that you may not make gentlefolk laugh, which I should be sorry for; but it shall all be your own talk, and if I put in any- thing of mine, I will set my two letters to it P. S. as tbe Secretary himself puts S. P. which will be making a proper difference between us. So here it is for you; Mr. Printer. I am sorry it is so long, but I could not make it shorter. I could not stop till I had had my whole story out; but if you think here is enough for twice, you might put my letter into one paper, and my Queries into the next. So no more at present from Your humble servant to command, Slushington- green, Muckfield, SAM. SLOD. Sept. 10, 1805.
