THE want of Public Schools for accommodating the Youth of Lcith, was long a fubjeft of regret and complaint. The Room? formerly occupied by the different Teachers were too fmall, at a great dillatice from each other, and Some of theni in improper, and even in unhealthy fituations. To remove thefe- inconveniencies, an application was made to the Lord Provoft, Magiftrates, and Council of the City of Edinburgh, for as imtch ground upon the Links of Leitli, as might be rfequifite for building School Rooms for the different branches of Education, upon a neat and commodious plan. This requeft was moll readily granted, the approbation of thp Edinburgh Golfing Society cordially given, aud a V O L U N T A RY SUBSCRIPTION was let on foot, to defray the neceffary expence. The Committee appointed to fuperintend the buildng of thefe Schools have now the pleafure to inform the Subfcribers and the public, That this very neceflary undertaking is almoft completed. The Room* are now opened for the different Claffes. and as tile fituation is pleafant, central, and healthy, they muft afford to the Youth the moft comfortable accommodation. The Committee acknowledge with pleafure, the cheerful and liberal manner in which the Inhabitants in general, as well as many of the Incorporated Societies, have' contributed to promote this important objsft. But, as a conftderable fum is iliil wanted to defray the expence already incurred, and to complete the plan, it is expected that every inhabitant who lias not yet contributed to this ufeful undertaking, and who withes te promote Literature, the patriotism, and the puMic virtue of his country, will come forward on this occafion, and heartily give his aid to attain an objeft fo neceffary in itfelf, and fo beneficial iu its cotifequences. Subscriptions will be received by the Leith Banking Company, and by any of the Magiftrates, Minifters, Mafters of Incorporations, or Members of the Committee. ARCH. GEDDES, Chairman.

Many of the barge- mafters had on black filk fcarfs, and all the officers of the River Fencibles wore crape round their atms. The bands belonging to the different companies at length arrived. Some of them were drefled in long mourning cloaks, and all had their drums muffled. They played " God Save the King," in a flow and folemn ftyle, as they came to the water- fide. At ten o'clock, the company n it having arrived to fill the different barges, the River Fencibles were obliged to proceed towards Greenwich, leaving them to make the beft of their way by themfelves. The barges then, without attending to any particu'ar onier, rowed down the river, fingly, as foon as they had taken in their company. At ten o'clock, the Lord Mayor, in a coach and fix, with four fervants behind, and attended by the City Officers, and many of the Aldermen, in their refpeftive carriages, proceeded from the Manfion Houfe over London Bridge, to Greenwich.

It is thought that the proeeffion will not reach London Bridge before four o'clock. On his arrival at Whitehall- flairs, the body will be landed there and carried to the Admiralty on bier. At the Admiralty it will be placed in the Captain's room, the whole of which has been covered with fupetfine black cloth, and will be lighted up by a profuiion of wax lights, placed in fconces on the fides.

All was hurry and confu'ion for about an hour, when every thing being prepared, the different boats took in theii refpeftive crews, and with flags lowered halfftaff, ftood out a fhort diftance from the fhore. They there lay to, waiting until the barges of the- feveral companies, which lay at the wharf, ffiould be ready to fail. It was. a corrfiderab)-; time before the gentlemen belonging to the different Corporations, who were to embark on board LORD NELSON LYING IN STATE AT GREENWICH. SECOND DAY,— Yefterday being Saint Monday, and the twelfth day, feveral hundreds 01 the holiday folks who were d'fappointed feeing Lord Nelfon lie in ftate the firft day, repaired to Greenwich to gratify their curiofity. The manner of lying in ftate was precifely the fame in every rerpe< 3 as mentioned in our laft. The gates were opened on Monday morning at eight o'clock, and fhut precifely at four. The great weftern gate was the place appointed for general entrance, but by fome unaccountable negleff, inftead of opening the carriage gate, as on Sunday, fo as more eafily, and with more fafety, to admit the throng, the fide wicket were only opened, which being extremely narrow, and the crowd without immenfe, on their being opened the rufh was fo violent and irrefiftible, that thofe perfons who had the misfortune to be near the fide of the entrance, were dread fully bruifed, fome were knocked down, and the current from behind was fo ftrong that it was impoffible for fome time to releafe them from being trampled upon by the throng. Though the guards were much more numerous and vigilant than on Sunday, they could fcarcely ( lem the impetuofity of ths thoufands who preffed for entrance. One old lady had her nc- fe literally fcraped from her face againft the fide of the front entrance; another woman had her child crufhed to death in her arms. Shoes, pattens, cloaks, pelices, muffs,, tippets, coats, caps, and liandkeichiefs, were torn from their owners, and a heap of the feveral articles enumerated, picked up by the guards, lay at the Hall fteps to be owned. Accounts of fome accidents on Sunday- ftate, that a man who had been fomewhat top- heavy, fell overboard and was drowned— that another man, who was thrown from an unruly horfe near the Bricklayers Arms, and his foot hanging in the ( tirrup, was dragged a coofiderable way, and taken up fpeechlefs— that a butcher in protedling his wife from being cruffied to death, when afcending the ftaircafe to the painted Hall, was jammed againft the corner of the ftone baluftrade, and had ope of his arms broken, and otherwife very much bruifed ; that a coach alfo broke down between Deptford and the Elephant and Caftle, with a gentleman and three ladies in it, by which accident one of the ladies had her arm broke, the others efcaped unhurt; and that a variety of 0- ther misfortunes were experienced by thofe who had the curiofity to adventure. The quantity of black cloth ufed in hanging I, the Painted Hall in Greenwich College, where * the remains of Lord Nelfon lie in ftate, exceeds 1700 yards. The Rev. Mr Scott, Chaplain to Lord Nelfon, fat in an arm chair at the head of the coffin, as Chief Mourner, on Monday and the day before. Amongft the vifitants of Monday were num bers of high rank and faffiion ; hei Grace rhe Duchefs of Devonfliire, and many of her noble friends, were in the throng. A vaft number of military officers alfo attended to pay their laft tribute of refpeft to departed heroifm, and to contemplate the roblefl ffimulus to gallant deeds. Notwithftanding the unfavourable ftate of the weather, the confequent deepnefs of the roads, and the diftance that Greenwich is from town, as vefterday was known to be the laft da) tor the boiy of Lord Nelfon lying in ftate, the crowds that fucceffivelv thronged along the roads were confiderably more numerous than a i y that are witneffed on the fineft day in fummer, flicking to ihe f/ liivitks of Greenwich fair. Such, hjw- T h e St George's jack, at the maft- bead of the brig, was lowered half- matt high, as a funeral falute, which was immediately returned by the colours of all the fhips in figlit from. the TCTrace. T h e Lieutenant- Governor of Greenwich then proceeded to inform L o r d Hood of the arrival of this brave band ; when the g„ llarit Admiral, accompanied by a party of the River fe'ncibles, armed with their pikes, proceeded to the nonli ga'e, next the River, and ordered the Ucrc s of Trafalgar to be brought on ffiore. The brig then hauled up alongfide the quay, and the brave > ars jumped afhore, amidft the warm greetings and grateful acclamations of the furrounding throng. A l a s ' , how different the fenjpjrions of thoP: gallant fellows from what they would have been under the brave Nelfon's eye, in boar, iing the deck of an enemy 1 They confided of 4 6 feanien and 1 4 marines, each bearing his hammock ; and if they were a air fpecimen of their m; ffm. ites in the Vidlory at Trafalgar, that tiiumph 1; the lefs wonderful; for each fcemed a true bre<;. cub. of the Britiffi Lion, and mod; of them bore the h o - nourable fears they received on the day their lamented leader fell in the caule of his country. Upon their paffing within the gates, they wete ordered by L o r d Hood, who approached them, to f l ow their baggage in tile Royal Charlotte W a r d of the Hofpital ; after which they fhould be gratified with a view of their heroic leader's body lying in ( late which} however, he was fure, would be to them no pleafant light. The " brave fellows bowed affent to this remp. rk ; they then prOceedcd to ftow their hammocks in the w. id appointed, and were afterwards efcortedby a party of the military to the Great H., 11, when they were conduced to the Saloon, where the remains of their beloved Com . .. n ier lay ; they -. yed the coffin with melancholy a miration and efpetS, while the manly tears g'. illencd in their • yc ., and ltole reluctant down their wrather- bean cheeks. Strangers were exc'udrd during his affecting fcene, nor atterwards admitted. Yefterday Parliament was further prorogued until Tuefday the 2 1 f t inft. The Commiffioners were, Lord Ellenborougb Lord Ardtn, and Loid Hawkefbury. Lord Ellenborough, who officiated inftead of the Loid Chancellor, dc- / claied the prorogation in the ufual form ; but thete are reports in circulation that Minifters intend to poftpone to a ( till more diftar. t period tlie meeting of the Leg- flature. The expedition which failed under the command of' Sir Home Popbam an'd Sir David Baird, is now undcrftood to have proceeded againll the SpaAifh fettle mem of Buenos Ayres, in the firft inftance. The lateft intelligence received from the Cap: of Good Hope affords reafon to expeft' that ; ts redu£ tion will be eafily accompiifiied. The fituation of the Cape at the latter end of May was fuch, that it feemed impoffible for the enemy to offer any effectual refiftance. It is ftated that the number of regular troops . then amounted only to one thoufand four hundred men, and a fmall galliot was the only naval force at the fettlement. Cape Towa and its dependencies had long been in a ftate of the utmoft diftrefs for provilions of every kind. Bread and flour were ferved out t « the inhabitants, as well as to the troops, : inly twice a week, anJ in very fmall quantities, rhe neccffitrv » ffe£ t of thele privations has been to e cite a fpirit of revolt and mutiny among the troops, and much difcontent among the inhabitants. The latter, we are allured, have made tlieir wants the fubjetft of frequent remonftrances to Government, which, however, poffefles not the means of alleviating their diftrefs. The Britifh public will rejoice to hear that the Emperor Alexander has fent to this country the moft pofitive and unqualified aflurances that, notwithftanding the hafty armiftice concluded by Francis, which left him no alternative but to retire from Germany with his army, agreeably to the ( lipulation introduced for that purpofe in the armiftice, he will ftill maintain inviolate the treaty into which he has entared with his Britannic Majefty, and aft upon it in any way that nuy be deemed beft adapted to anfwer the purpofes for which it was concluded. This is atcfolution worthy of the magnanimous Alexander, and cannot fail t ® be followed by confequences biohly beneficial to this country, in the protecution of the war in which we ave engaged.-— Slav. This was the only confolatory information received by the laft difpatches from the Continent- The other communications related merely to the events that have recently taken place in Moravia, and to the line of copdudt likely to be purfued by Pruffia. On the latter point, we can affure the public, that Government have received no information that can encourage them 10 hope for any co- operation whatever frcm that power.— Ibid.

It is reported that, immediately upon the meeti n g o Parliament, a. bill will be Submitted by intfters to its confideration, for the more effectual encreafc oi- the military force of the country With the details and provifions of it we do not piofefs to be acquainted ; but the obj "< 3: which it will ollenfibiy hate in view, wiil be to raife 60,000 men by a new mode jof recruiting. I t is alfo laid, that a confiderable alteration will be propofed in the exifting conflitution of the militia, and probably fome changes in that of the TO. lunteers, with the view of rendering each body more fubfervient to the urgent neceffities of the State.

Yeilerday a Court of Diredtors was held at the Eaft India Houfe, when the following Captains were ( worn into the command of their refpeCtive fhips, viz. Captain Chailes Jones, Dav i d Scott, Madras and China ; Captain James Jamefon, Fame, Bombay and Bengal. E x t r a f t of a letter, tinted Bombay, July 2 6 .— A ferious degree of difaffeflion, has lately appeared in Colonel Wallace's army, particularly in the 6' h regiment of native cavalry, brought about, it is faid, by the intrigues of Holkar, two oi whofe Chiefs are in confinement, together with a Z e m - indar, and one hundred and fifty men of the 6th regiment. The iflue of the Court Martial hold- • ing in his camp is not yet known, but it is faid that the difaffeCtion has taken fuch root in that detachment as renders it unlafe to attempt to criminate any thing near the number that art known t o be implicated. The plot was providentially • difcovered before it was ripe. A party of two thoufand Arabs, in the neighbourhood, were to have fallen upon the 84th regiment, while the Zemindar and his party were to have proceeded t o murder the officers. This, I hear, is the outline of t h e plot. Lord Cornwallis has hid indifferent h : al h ftnee his arrival in I n d i a : H e has proceeded up the country, " I n a Supplement of the Madrid Gazette of the 29th of November is pubhfhed an a d d r e f s t o t he people, entitled " An Exhortation in behalf of the Poor W i d o w s and Orphans o f the Defenders of the Country j w h o fell in the Bay of Cadiz, on the 2 i l l of October." It is figned by a F e l l ow Countryman ; but, from the paper in which it appeals, as well as from the matter it contains, there can be no doubt o f its official character. It exhibits, on the part of the Spanifh Government, a remarkable confcffion of their want of refotirces, and penury. While it pretends to folicit contributions from the people for the relief o f thofe who Suffered in the battle of Trafalgar, or their relatives, it appears to have for its real o b i e t , the railing throughout Spain a fpirit of emulation for Supplying, according to the refpective means of public bodies and individuals, eithei money or materials for the formation and cquipment of a new fleet. It is faid, a gentleman w h o arrived on Sunday from the Continent brought the following copy of a handbill which has b: en la'ely circulated in France. It is a curious produ& ion, and, if genuine, tends in fome meafure to ( hew, that the internal Situation of France is not fo fatisfaftory as her external power is brilliant and d a z z l i n g :— " Frenchmen, your Emperor lias conquered Austria, humbled Russia, silenced Prussia,'. and commanded the admiration of the world, by his generosity and moderation, as much as by his va lour and achievements.' England still dares to resist, but her resistance is the struggle of agony, of death. She is breathing her last. If she de a f ew years longer existence, instead of immediate destruction, she must, in the East, re- establish the kingdoni of Mysore, such as it was in 1784 ;; restore Ceylon to Holland, and renounce her monopoly in Indian commodities and trade. In the W e s t , she must give up Jamaica, as a security for her assistance to us to destroy the anarchy of the blacks iu St D o m i n g o . She must evacuate the Mediterranean, give up Malta to its Grand Mas ter, and Gibraltar to its lawful and territorial sove reign. No where more inimical ports will be declared in blockade, or the flags of neutrals be mo- Jested, insulted, and pillaged. The sea shall be as free as the earth, and without the permission of the Emperor of the French, a vessel shall no more dare to sail, than a fort be built or a cannon fired. Frenchmen 1 you are already, thanks to your heroic Emperor, the most powerful of people— a little more patience, you will also be the most happy and the most wealthy. " DUBOIS, Prefect of Police.

For these two days | xist the London papers have been almost filled with the ceremonial to be observed at the late lamented Lord Admiral N E L S O N ' S funeral, and the necessary orders given to rentier that solemn spectacle as splendid and impressive as possible.— The crowds that have attended the lying in state at Greenwich have been great, and the eagerness of the people to gain admission has occasioned considerable mischief.— On Wednesday at ten o'clock the procession by water commenced from Greenwich to Whitehall Stairs, where the body was landed about four o'clock and carried to the Admiralty.— The grand procession to St Paul's was to take place next day The number of strangers who have arrived in London to witness this solemnity is immense, and the most extravagant prices are paid for places in the streets through which the procession passes. HIGH COURT OF JUSTICIARY. . Yesterdav came oil before the Court the trial of THOMAS WATLING. late limner in Dumfries, accused of forging and uttering five pound notes, in imitation of those issued bv the Bank of Scotland. The libel chargcd the prisoner with utteri n s , or causing to be uttered, four forged 51 notes. The first was changed bv Anne Tining, the pannei's servant, at the Bank of Scotland's office, Dumfries. The second was given as genuine by the panuel to John N i l s o n , residenter in Dumfries, w h o gave it for value to W i l l i am Law, innkeeper, Carlisle, but he discovered it was. a- forgery, on which the pannel wrote a letter to Mr Law, in name oS N i l s o n , desiring him to remit the note bv a sure hand, and he should have its Sterling value. A third was passed as genuine in the British Linen Company's olficc, Dumfries. And a fourth to some person in Dumfries, unknown to the Prosecutors. The libel farther stales, tha, t on the 5th of April last, on search being made in Nilson's house in DumSries, there were Sound concealed, wrapped in waste paper, in the Soot oS a stocking, three oS the said Sorged notes, which had been concealed by the panael. The prisoner pled not guilty, and 110 objections being made to the relevancy, the Court proceeded to call t h e witnesses. After two or three had been examined, the LORD ADVOCATE intimated, that from what had already passed he believed lie could not bring home the crime of uttering to the pannel ; he therefore declined proceeding farther in the cause. The LORD J U S T I C E CLERK then shortly addressed the jury, who were immediately ' inclosed, and in a short time returned a verdict finding the libel nut proven, 011 which the pannel was dismissed from the bar.

Con. 59} GO EDINBURGH— JANUARY U. — Three mails remain due from Hamburgh, and, as is usual when there is 110 diiect communication with the Continent, a number of rumours have been in circulation for these two or three days I t was reported that his Prussian MAJESTY had taken Hanover under his protection ; that the British troops were partly embarked ; and that a considerable subsidy was to be immediately sent to the Continent. Others assert, upon the alledged authority of private letters from our army on the Continent, that the advanced posts of the French and British troops are contiguous to each other, and that it was thought the French would make a speedy attack. We do not know what credit is due to any of these rumours. Notwithstanding the unfortunate issue of affairs in Moravia, it is said, and we trust truly, that the Emperor ALEXANDER has given the most positive assurances to our Government* that he will maintain inviolate the treaty he has entered into with this country. The Venus frigate, arrived from Cuxhaven, is said to have brought dispatches to Government of a highly interesting description ; but 110 particulars respecting them had transpired 0: 1 Wednesday T h e Venus ran ashore on the Goodwin Sands, but has been since got off without, damage. Tuesday evening the Earl Howe frigate arrived at Portsmouth from the East Indies, having onboard the Marquis of WELLESLEV, late Governor General of Bengal, and his suite.

T h e Committee for managing the fubferiptions at Merchants Hall have remitted to the Patrio - ic Fund at London three thoufand pounds, in part of the fums already fubferibed and colleifted, the receipt of which has been acknowledged to their Treafurer by the Secretary at Lloyd's. We are h ' ppy to learn that the fubferiptions for the benevolent purpofes of this inftit'ution, as well as thofc for ereCting a monument in this city to the memory of L o t d Vifcount NELSON, are daily increafing. On Thursday, at fottr o ' c l o c k p. M. an unfortunate affair took place between Major T . of the l o t h militia, and an officer of the fame regiment, which, we are extremely forry to ( late, terminated rather unfavourably with regard to the Major, who received a ball in his thigh. Only one round was fired, and it is believed the Maj o r ' s piftol went off as he was falling. CORRI'S ROOMS.— The Vocal Concert at thefe Rooms lalt evening, we are much pleafed to re port, went off with much luccefs. The feleftion of the glees and fongs were judicious, and the performers gave real Satisfaction. The Rooms were filled with perfons of the higheft rank and fafhion, and the amateurs enjoved a high treat indeed. We hope ihe f ew evenings of the glee party's performance may be c r o w ed with equal fuccefs, and the Company return as much pleafed as on laft night. It would be great injuftice to the proprietor, if we omitted this opportunity of paying oar tribute of applaufe for the pains and extent e he has been at to render their Concert Rooms equal to any in this country. The Orchellra has been enlarged, and beautified, in a capital ( tyle, and exhibits the. p'ure Gothic tade in perfection. T h e Rooms were well lighted, and ' perfectly warm. The occafional Dirge j< t( t. he memory of our departed hero, NELSON, was peculiarly fine, and, coming on the day of bis interment, was moft affefting.

On this occafion no other boat could have lived in the fea ; and, at a place where So many wrecks happen, this ingenious invention may be the means of faving many valuable lives.
