S PRICE SIXPENCE, \ S'amp- Duty •.... 3j< J. ' I Paper and Print • • ' Md. Sunday and Tuesday's Posts. From the LONDON GAZETTE. ADMJRALTY- OFFICL, Not. 12, 1807. Extract of a tetter from Captain Start, of his Ma- jesty's sloop Skylark, dated November 8, 1807, to Vice- Admiral Rowley. . SIR, IT is with great satisfaction I acquaint you, that we last night, after a chase of one hour and fifty- five minutes, captured Le Renarde French privateer lugger, of l- l guns and SO men, belonging to Calais, which place she had left that evening, Hnd w as in the act of taking possession of a collier brig, under the North Foreland, which they after- wards abandoned, on observing us pursue them, and we took charge of her. The obstinacy of the Captain in not surrendering when repeatedly called to, and likewise an attempt he made to lay us on board, obliged us to fire, by which he was severely wounded, and the lugger's main- mast shot away. The Captain of the llenarde is the person who took the Argus, an. I 1- ' comtrinicates, that his vessel was run down Ly her, and that the master has since had his arm amputated; the prisoners also mention, that the privateer who lately engaged the Active lost eight men killed and seven wounded ill the encounter. 1 have the honour to be, & c. ( Signed) H. E. P. STURT. [ This Gazette likewise contains a dispatch from Captain Down, of his Majesty's sloop Bittern, to Lord Collingwood, stating the capture of the Spanish settee privateer El Verga del Rosaria, of two guns and 20 men. ' 1 bis Gazette also contains the Order in Council respecting the distribution of prizes taken from Denmark, Etrurin, Naples, the Republic of the Seven Islands, and Ragusa, which is similar in its regulations and proportions to the Order for the division of French and other captures.] LONDON, Nov. 17. A Supplementary Gazette, containing the im- portant. orders of the King in Council which have been for some time expected, was published on Monday morning. The following is the substance of these regulations:— The. first Order directs that all neutral vessels shall iie forthwith warned not to trade in future at any hostile port, unless such vessel shall be going from, or coming to, a port of the United Kingdom, or to any port or place in the possession, or so far under thecontroul of France or her allies, as that British vessels may not freely trade thereat, except as aforesaid: anil in case any vessel, belonging to neutral subjects, shall he found trading or conveying goods, or to have traded or conveyed goods, after having been so warned, or after the expiration of a reasonable time for their being acquainted with sucn interdiction, unless going from or cuniing to a port of the United Kingdom, such vessel shall be seized, and brought in for legal adjudication, anil shall be condemned as good and lawful prizes to his Majesty; it being provided, that the cargoes of vessels so warned shall be admitted to entry into this country, subject to such duties and regulations as may be directed hereafter. ' 1 here are some exceptions in favour of vessels not belonging to powers at war with this country, by v, nich Government reserves to itself a right of prescribing the conditions ou which they shall be allowed to trade to certain specified places. The second Order applies particulaHy to the trade with the enemy's country, and provides for the exportation from the ports of the United Kingdom, of the produce or growth of France, Spain, & c that may have been legally imported, under certain conditions and regulations hereafter to be established. One of these regulations, we understand, will be, that persons exporting such foreign produce must enter into proper security that they will, within a limited period, export one- third of the tonnage of such goods, in British manufactures or Colonial produce; the said pro- duce of France to be subject to such duties, upon » xpoi tation, as may hereafter be directed. The - last Order declares that all sales of British vessels, captured by the enemy, shall be considered as void; and that such, though purchased by neutrals, and sailing under the protection of a neutral flag, shall be liable to seizure and con- fiscation We are thus fairly at issue with Bonaparte upon the question of blockade. The rigour of his decree^ against the commerce of Great- Britain has been encountered by measures of corresponding severity 011 our part. It cannot be doubted that their effects wilt be severely felt by the few neutral powers which the successful ambition of the head of the French Government lias allowed to retain that character. But as every measure of his is directed against a vital interest of this country, we must defend ourselves by all the means in our power. The neutrals can with little justice com- plain of this act of retaliation. The Earl of Pembroke, his Majesty's Envoy Extraordinary, and Minister Plenipotentiary, to the Court of Vienna, and suite, landed at Ports- mouth on Saturday afternoon, from the Melpomene frigate, Captain Parker, which was released from quarantine that morning. Dutch Papers to the 5th instant, and letters of a late date from the north of Germany, have arrived. The former confirm the accounts of the march of the French army destined to act against Portugal. It is stated also, that 30,000 Spaniards were 011 the march to co- operate with them. If the Spanish army has been put in motion, it is more probably i'or the purpose of getting it out of the country, than sending it against so feeble a state as Portugal. The eastern provinces of Turkey are. in a state of general revolt. The authority of the Porte is every where resisted. About 17,000 French and Spanish troops were assembled at Hamburgh, and the neighbourhood. None of them, however, had entered the Danish territory. The guard- ship usually stationed at Cuxhaven has been taken possession of by the French, and an intimation given to the Danes at the same time, that it was not expected in future from them that they should protect the navigation of the Kibe lower down than Gluckstadt. The half measures pursued by the Prince Regent hive by no means satisfied Bonaparte. We find that the Portuguese vessels in the ports of Holland hate been embargoed, and that the Minister of that country to the Court of King Louis was pre- - paiing to depart. The French troops are pro- ceeding through Spain in vast numbers. Letters from Sicily and Malta, of the date of , he 23d of September, mention, that the British army at Alexandria had embarked, and were hourly expected at Messina, to reinforce the army of Sicily. Th § 10th regiment had also arrived from Gibraltar. A flag of truce passed by Dover on Sunday, arid came to anchor the same evening in the Downs. A messenger landed from her, who immediately set out for London. He was the bearer of dis- patches for Prince Stahremberg, the Austrian Ambassador. Different reports prevail as to the nature of these dispatches. By some persons they are supposed to relate to the measures which Austria, in obedience to the dictates of France, lias found herself under the necessity of adopting, for protecting her purls in the Adriatic, and for prohibiting all commercial intercourse between them and this country. Others conjecture that they relate to an offer of her mediation to bring about a general peace. Sir Sidney Smith, who did not sail from Ply- mouth till Thursday, in consequence of the unfa- vourable weather, proceeds directly to Cork, where he will wait, during a large embarkation of troops, the arrival of another division of thegrand expedition fitting out in the Channel. A squadron of eight or ten sail of the line, be- sides frigates, is to be fitted out with all dispatch, at Portsmouth, to he sent 011 a particul r service, under Admiral Keats. Such ships are to he scut as can be soonest got ready for sea They are not to receive their orders till they have all assembled at St. Helen's. Orders have also been received at Plymouth, to prepare, with all possible expedition, every vessel in a state to go to sea. We understand, ihat fgr these four or five months General Christophe has maintained agents here, invested with powers and instructions to make over- tures to the Ministers of this country, and to pro- pose to them to put the island of'St. Domingo under the protection of his Britannic Majesty. These proposals arc accompanied with many others, 110 less interesting for our military than our mercantile operations; and, it is said, that the project of a treaty of amity, commerce, and alliance, between England and Ilayti, isactually before Government. Ministers have directed a Court of Enquiry, to enquire generally into the causes of the failure of our expedition to the River Plate, and of the attack on Buenos Ayres. They have done this, we understand, because they do not know how far the criminality may extend, and what persons may- be implicated in guilt or error. The amount of the investments from this coun- try to the river Plata, the greater part of which has been lost, is estimated at five millions sterling. A third party is likely to make its appearance in the House of Commons in the next Session of Parliament. It is of a perfectly neutral cha- racter, but bottomed upon liberal and consti- tutional principles. In all measures of a com- prehensive and enlightened policy, we understand, Ministers will receive its decidbd support. The list contains many names highly respectable for character, fortune, and talents. This phalanx, though it is not expected to amount to more than thirty- five, Will be a strong check upon the Minister and the Opposition. A party of English prisoners attempted to make their escape from Verdun, between the 9th and 10th of last month; the general alarm was immediately given, and some of them were shortly after taken, and lodged in close con- finement. Advice has been received at the Admiralty, of the re- capture of the William Tell, a transport ship, which took out convicts to New South Wales. . Accounts have been received of a very gallant action fought 011 the 1st of October, by the Windsor- Castle and a French privateer, in which the latter was captured and carried into Barbadoes. The privateer was superior in guns and in men; very much so, having had 109 men, of whom 57 were killed or wounded— and the packet 28, of w fi 0111 she lost 13. The Court- Martial which has been sitting at Sheerness, 011 Lord Falkland, Captain of the Quebec frigate, has terminated, and adjudged his Lordship to be dismissed from his command. The letters received from the out- ports contain many melancholy accounts of the effects of the late storm. On the shores of Holland its ravages have also been very extensive. Information was received yesterday of the loss of 110 less than three of our transports returning from Copenhagen, 011 the Dutch coast. One, which had on board 188 soldiers, 19 officers, and 10 women, was wrecked near Catwyck, but in consequence of the assist- ance afforded from the shore, all 011 board were happily saved. The ereiv and passengers were made prisoners. Longevity.- Mary Ralpson, aged 109 years, horn in Lochaber, Jan. 1, 1098, is now living in good health, in Kent- street, Liverpool, where she has resided upwards of fifty years. She has lived in three centuries, and enjoyed ail uninterrupted state of good health, during five successive reigns, viz. King William, Queen Anne, and three Georges. She was an active partaker in the great battles of Dettingcn, Fontenoy, Preston Pans, Falkirk, Ctil- loden, & c. and followed the arms of William Duke of Cumberland in all their toils, both at home and abroad. On Sunday se'nnight died, at Ely, Mr. George Apsey, youngest son of William Apsey, Esq. of that place.— At the age of 14- year's lie weighed upwards of 15 stone; and at the time of his death, being in his 20th year, he weighed upwards of 22 stone. This young man, though of an extra- ordinary size, and of a gross habit, enjoyed ex- ceeding good health until within a few hours of his death, which was occasioned bv a mortifi- cation, proceeding from a rupture he received by a large piece of wood falling against him, a few weeks since, and which he took 110 notice of till a mortification had taken place, and surgical assistance could Ue of no avail.— Had his life been prolonged a few years, it is likely he would have equalled, if not exceeded, the great Mr. Lambert in size. On Wednesday, a female, named Marianne Rebecca Johnson, alias William Johnson, was brought before the Lord Mayor, at the Mansion- house, under peculiar circumstances. She had been fount! in the dress of a sailor, on the threshold of a door, apparently in great distress. She stated, that she was a nature of Whitby, in Yorkshire, from which town she had been forced by her father- in- law, at the age of 13, to put 011 sailor's clothes, with threats that,' if ever she discovered her sex, he would murder her. He bound her apprentice on board a coal- vessel of Sunderland, at present lying off Woolwich, - here she served four years, and from which she took the opportunity 011 Tuesday of running away.— ' Ihe Lord Mayor ordered proper care to he taken of her, and that, she should not be compelled to return to the coal trade, but passed, by other means, to her native parish.— Fridav, the above young woman attended at the Mansion- house, in decent female apparel, preparatory to her journey to W littby.

Mrs. BOONF,, in St. Giles's- Street, NORTHAMPTON, has proved the Truth of the above Declaration in almost every Instance; but Mr. Guest finds, that those few who have not been so relieved, cannot be cured by a constant Use of these Medicines; yet those who have been relieved, may most assuredly be perfectly restored by using them a reasonable Time; therefore promises to give any one so afflicted a Trial at a small Expence, by applying to Mrs. Boom, or Mrs. SMITH, Abington- Street. s. d.

They contain the strongest assurances of the pacific disposition of the Russian Government. The exchange, not- withstanding the arrival of several British ships, had fallen considerably. The cargoes, it was said, had been purchased, and drawn for long before the vessels arrived. This would account for the de- preciation of the exchange. The Russian army is described as being more numerous, and in a higher btate of discipline and appointment, than at any period of the late War. All apprehensions of a rupture between Russia imd this country appear to have subsided. Some vessels which thought it necessary to make enquiry tit Risa, were told" that they might prosecute their VovaL'e in perfect safety; and the Court of St. Petersburg!), we understand, has made application to our Government to allow the Russian fleet, now at Gibraltar, to winter and repair in one of our ports. This proof of confidence is sufficient to obviate any fear of a rupture with that country. A Gottenburgh Mail has arrived, by which pri- vate letters are said to be received, stating, that new and tempting offers have been exhibited to Sweden, to induce her to consent to shut her ports against English commerce, but hitherto without effect. According to the following account from Con- stantinople, dated Sept. 25, and received through Hamburgh, that city is in a state bordering on revolution:—" The Grand Signior'continues to exhibit a singular firmness of character. He has adopted the resolution to re- orgauize a part of the troops according to the Nizain Gedid, or new tactics; only with t. ho difference of these troops preserving their national costume.— Last week in the streets of Tophana, the Sultan was pressed upon in such a manner by a number of Janizaries Coming from the castles of Fanaraki, that he was compelled to give orders to drive them off. The Janizaries consequently attacked his retinue, but the laiter obtaining the assistance of the guards, a number of the Bsstangis were wounded, so that the assailants were compelled to draw off. The refractory were however punished with such seve- rity, that 50 of them were strangled on the spot, find good order restored." A decree has been issued, forbidding the sailing of any flags of truce from Morlaix for England) which is once more denounced " as the unjust and eternal enemy of the Continent."— In Holland, the ports are actually ordered to be shut against the entrance of all vessels whatsoever, except such as bring cargoes which " cannot be furnished by England," such as timber for masts, and other produce of the North. The Proclamation of King Louis, prohibiting • the entrance into the ports of Holland of all vessels that may even be suspected of having English goods » n board, has been forced upon the King of Prussia, < and published in all bis ports, as well as at Ham- burgh. The enmity of the Danes towards England ap- pears to increase. All letters from Copenhagen jo Gottenburgh are to be opened, with a view to vobstruct still further all possible mode of commu- nication between England and the Continent. The Da lish Government has ordered that none j> f their pilots should go on board of English ships, | vcn if signals of distress are made. The hopes of peace, excited by the arrival of ( he flag of truce, have been soon dissipated, and the Stocks have come to their former level. It is Jiovv ascertained, that the dispatches brought to Prince Stahremberg, relate to some private concerns of that nobleman, and not to any poli- tical object. It is stated, that some farther Orders of Council for the regulation of tradefare determined upon by Ministers. To some of those orders the late decrees refer, but one of a new description is expected, which is said to be much more of an liostile character, with regard to neutrals, than any that have yet appeared. the latest letteVs from Gibraltar infivm us, that a spy had been detected there. He is described to be a French officer in disguise. A bribe offered to a British officer led to a discovery; and the French- man was secured. It is added, that it was this circumstance which induced the Governor to order foreigners to quit the garrison, or submit to the registry of their names and places of abode. Doctor Vernon, Bishop of Carlisle, will, we understand, succeed to the Archbishopric of York ; and it is reported that Doctor Zouch is to be the new Bishop. The late Archbishop of York gave i\ 1000 last Christmas to each of his grand- children, amount- ing to the number of forty- seven. Saturday last died, at his house near Alnwick, Northumberland, in the 79th year of his age, the Right Hon. Charles Earl Grev, K. B. a General in the Army, Colonel of the 3d Dragoons, and Go- vernor of Guernsey. His Lordship served at the battle of Minden, and was the only surviving officer who served under tien. Wolfe at Quebec. In 1782 he was appointed Commander in Chief ill America, but in consequence of the peace did not go. His Lordship served at the relief of Ostend and Nieuport in 1793, and went soon after as Commander in Chief in the West In'dies, and suc- ceeded in capturing Martinique, St. Lucie, and Guadaloupe. In 1802 he was created Baron Grey, anu in 1806 raised to the dignity of an Earl. His Lordship has left four sons and two daughters, and is succeeded in title and estate by the eldest of the former, Lord Howick, now Earl Grey. Cow- Par.— By a Medical Report from the Infirmary at Birmingham, it appears, that since the commencement of the practice of inoculating with the cow- pock matter, by the surgeons of that institution, - 1543 persons have been inoculated by them with complete success. It also appears, from the unanimous opinion of the surgeons, that no case has occurred, either in public or private practice, in which the small- pox has taken place after inoculation with cow- pock. It is likewise their unanimous opinion, that no eruptions on the skin, no scrofulous complaints, nor any other disease whatever, have occurred in their practice, as a consequence to inoculating with cow- pock matter. A very melancholy event occurred at Wick, in the parish of Berkeley, in Gloucestershire, on Sunday the 8th inslant. About four o'clock in the afternoon, Mr. Bennett, a respectable farmer of the above place, and his two sons, were walking over their grounds ; when, being overtaken by a thunder- storm, they imprudently took shelter bAVfeNfRV.

IN the great Concern which includes the various Property consigned to the Hammer, and which has rendered the AUCTIONEERING I'ROIESSION so expedient and extensive, the present Candidate for S Participation of public Patronage presumes to flatter himself, that, from an already considerable Employ and Experience, he will be found adequate to the weighty Trust, and not undeserving of general Con- fidence. CULLING WORTH, therefore, does himself the Honour to inform the Ladies and Gentlemen, and commercial Inhabitants, of DAYENTRY anu its Vicinity, that he has re- newed his AUCTION LICENCE, for the dis- posing by Auction, or appraising, of all HOUSEHOLD- FURNITURE, PLATE, BOOKS, ESTATES, HOUSES, and every other Description of Property.

On Wednesday the Furious gun- brig was at- tacked by a French lugger privateer, by which she liad five men killed, and nine wounded. The lugger, finding she had a vessel of war to contend with, made her escape. The Warspite, a new ship of 74 guns, was ^ launcliod on Monday last from Chatham yard. The bustle prevalent in every branch of the naval department is said to be extreme— and the most active means are resorted to for equipping a number of small vessels to cruise along the enemy's coasts, to give effect to the new blockading system. Six vessels of a fleet of fifteen, under convoy of the Forester sloop, going too close to the shore, have been obliged to surrender to the Castle of Cronenburgh. An English frigate has been since stationed in the Sound to protect our commerce. Of all the transports from Copenhagen, we un- derstand, the number of missing does not exceed nine, and hopes are entertained that several of them are safe. It is a melancholy fact, how- ever, that more lives have been lost in their return home, than in the whole campaign in Zealand, and the bombardment of the Danish capital. Some of the transports have been cast on the Dutch coast, but the greatest loss has been sus- tained upon our own shores, in the passage from Yarmouth to the Downs. The late dreadful gales drove the Danish 74- gun ship Fuen from the North Foreland to Yar- mouth Roads. She tailed on the Corton Sand, was obliged to cut away her masts, and would in- disputably have been lost, had not Admiral Douglas ( the Port- Admiral at Yarmouth) sent off a lighter, with anchors and cables, previous t » her driving, he having perceived her to be in a danger- ous situation. Scyeren, another Danish V't, was also Saved by the same anticipation. The former had above 800 people on board, aud is laden with brass otdripuce and knees; the latter laden with copper, cordage, & c. The transport, No. SO, from Copenhagen, with 1870 men of the German Legion on board, wa3 blown ashore on Wednesday night off the Kentish Knock, and only ten of that number were saved! The following accidents and losses in the late storms appear in the books at Lloyd's, viz. The Shorn transport, sunk in Dover Roads ( run foul ot). The John and Ann, Hutchinson, of Scarborough, and Mary, Wright, from Yarmouth to Grangemouth, • re lost near Scarborough. The Betsy, Nailer, of Whitby, and the Sophia, Cook, are I6st near Whitby. A coal- laden brig is lost, and all her crew. The Providence transport, Blaby, is lost on the Long Sand— people saved. The Hardys, Hardy, from Archangel to London, is sunk on the beach at Harwich. l The Anna Maria, M'Miller, from Liverpool to Westporf, and a large ship with timber, are lost near Port Rust. The Salisbury transport, Purdie, ii lout, with part • f her crew, and 240 soldiers. The Providence, Sanders, of Sunderltnd, is on <* fc> re oh the Yorkshire eotst^ itm « vwd.

THIS Office was established in LOMBARD- STREET, LONDON, in tht Vear 1797, by a numerous and respectable Proprietary; and the Board ot Directors, with Confidence, arising from the increased Prosperity and Permanency of the Establish- ment, as well as from the Experience of its Useful- ness and Benefit to the Public, think it due to those who may be still unacquainted with the Importance and Advantages of LIFE INSURANCE, briefly to suggest some of its leading and peculiar Recommend- ations to almost every Degree and Rank in Society. Life Insurance is of manifest Consequence to all who hold Estates for Life, Situations and Offices, Civil, Ecclesiastical, or Professional; to Officers in the Army and Navy, & c. ; as, by Payment of an Annual Premium, the Party insured is enabled to provide for Wife, Children, or others, whose tuture Welfare he may wish in vain, by other Means, to promote. It affords a permanent ultimate Security to those who advance Money upon Annuities or otherwise. It renders Leases, determinable on one or more Lives, nearly equal in Value to Freehold Estates; as an Insurance to the Amount of the Fine, payable on the Demise of- a Party nominated in such Leases, will produce the Sum required tor Renewal. It is a cheering Refuge to Parties engaged in extensive and speculative Undertakings; it affords to Persons in Trade the certain Means of Indemnification against a bad or doubtful Debt; in short, Lite Insurance, established in Policy, sanctioned by Government, and confirmed by the Test of Experience, is become, to almost every Situation of Human Lite, a Measure equally important, useful, and beneficial. Annuities are granted ufion the most equitable Terms. JOSEPH HAWTYN, Company's Agent at Banbury. To Timber- Merchants.— Bedfordshire.

LO NI) O N, November 20. THE Hamburgh Correspondenten, of the 7th and 20th instant, were received yesterday. They contain not the least information; and as to the politics of the Porte they are completely con- cealed from us. The King of Saxony is going to take formal pos- session of the Duchy of Warsaw. By another Gottenburgh Mail, which arrived on Wednesday, we learn, that the Danish Magistrates in Finland have issued Proclamations, prohibiting the people from conversing on political subjects. The Russian Ambassador, Count Tolstoi, has arrived at Fontainbleau, and Bonaparte has nomi- nated his Ambassador to the Court of St. Peters- burgh. We hardly think that Russia will feel much flattered by the choice Bonaparte has made. The Emperor Alexander has afforded an asylum to the Bourbon family, and Bonaparte has nominated Caulaincourt, who seized the Duke D'Enghien, a member of that family, as his Minister at the Court of St. PetersbUrgh. Travellers who have come from the interior of Russia stale, that the greater part of the troops who served in the late campaign, are still collected, and have not yet received orders to return to their respective quarters. Two- thirds of the provincial niiluia- that were formed last winter, have been dismissed; the remainder are still under arms. The Captain of a vessel which arrived yesterday from Memel, states, that the King of Prussia, who still remains in that town, is rapidly recruiting his army, with whom his Majesty is extremely popular. Jri pursuance of his Majesty's Proclamation for seizing the persons and properties of the subjects of the King of Denmark, the crews of The Hit- ! cannot have ferent Danish merchant vessels, detained at Leith, I Employer, were 011 Thursday taken into custody, and marched off the same evening, under a military escort, to the depot for prisoners of war at Greenlaw. A deputation of American Merchants, consisting of Mr. Sansom the Chairman, and Messrs. Bain- bridge, Baring, Shaw, Mallett, and Iuglis, waited upon Earl Bathurst and Mr. Rose, the President arid Vice- President of the Board of Trade, with whom they continued in conference between two aud three hours. The deputation wished first to obtain some modification of certain parts of the Orders in Council, particularly that relating to Certificates of Origin; and secondly, to procure some explanation with respect to other parts.— . The result of the conference was communicated to a meeting of American Merchants, held this morning. It has not yet transpired. All the battalions of the King's German Legion are under orders for Portsmouth and its neigh- bourhood— several of them have already arrived in transports from North- Yarmouth. The Garland frigate sailed from Cork on the 11th instant, with a fleet of sixty- eight sail, bound to the West Indies. Sunday night, about seven o'clock, a French privateer came into Dover Road, and ran along- side a brig that was lying at anchor within gun- shot of the pier- head. She immediately fired a volley of musquetry into the brig, boarded her, cut her cable, and carried her clcan off. The James, Richard Wilson, from Leith for Newcastle, with goods and passengers, drove from her anchors on the Holderncss coast, off Wax liolme, near the Sister Churches, six miles from ParringSon, about three o'clock on Monday morning in a heavy gale of wind, and soon af terwards be- came an entire wreck. We are sorry to state that all on board perished. Four of the bodies, and part of the cargo, have been washed on shore. There were warehoused at the Custom- house on Monday last, 3787 pipes and 1034 hogsheads of Portugal wine. The leases of Lord Foley's estates, in Worces- tershire being expired, the lands have been valued at £. 15,000 a year more; the advance commences from Lady- day next, and the tenants have all agreed to remain. ' The following truly melancholy occurrence took place, on Wednesday last, at Sherringham, on the Norfolk coast:— As seven men, in two boats, were going out to fish, the boats were upset, and dashed to picces, by a sudden gale of wind, and the poor men were all unfortunately drowned, although not more . than 50 yards from the shore. Tuesday se'nnight, about ten o'clock at night, the mail- coach from Plymouth- Dock was over- turned upon Dinham Bridge, about four miles the western side of Ashburfon. The coach was pro- ceeding with more than common velocity, and, from the circumstance of the horses instantly stopping, the driver was precipitated over the bridge, where the waters had swollen beyond their ordinary size by recent torrents. He was much bruised by the fall,; was carried some distance by the current, and probably would have perished but for the exertions of Lieut. Mainwaring, of the Narcissus, who caught hold of his great- coat, and dragged him to the shore. None of the passengers were in the slightest degree hurt. There are' now living, in the neighbourhood of Bolton, Lancashire, two men, the one named Abraham Haslain, aged 94 years, who can read any chapter in a small Bible with the naked eye, and is in other respects lusty and healthy; the other named William Lomax, a weaver, by which he at present earns his subsistence, at the length- ened age of 98 years, and sings TuUy- I- ho the Grinder, with as much glee as if he was but forty! R. SCRIVEN ri ETURNS his sincere Thanks to his Frifends ^ for the numerous Favours he has so long been honoured with, and informs them that lie has declined the SADDLERY BUSINESS, the Stock of which will be sold by Auction, by Mr. Kirshaw ( see Advertisement), 011 Saturday the28th Instant.

About 3000 Militia and 2000 Indians can be as- sembled on the shortest notice at his call, and upon his taking the field a much larger force will join him. So that the late provident measures of Ministers, seconded by the exertions of Sir John Johnson, will oppose a formidable barrier to ajiy attempts on the part of the United S lates, in the event of a rupture. A fine French privateer, just off the stocks, and oply two days from Morlaix, of 18 guns, and 110 men, has been taken, after a chase, and sent into Plymouth by the Surinam, of 18 guns. The French privateer's name is Admiral Du Croix. The Swallow brig has captured, off the Lizard, the French privateer Friedland, of 14 guns, and 45 men. She threw all her guns overboard during the chase. She left Morlaix on Saturday, in com- pany with two luggers, and had made no capture. —' The Carrier privateer has capture^ the Active, off the Dogger Bank— she parted from her in a gale of wind, after having put a prize- master and men on board. The Active had 32 men, the Carrier 17. It appears by a letter from Portsmouth that the fleet, under the command of Admiral Keats, has dropped down to St. Helen's ; it consists of twelve sail of the line.— The gallant Admiral's flag is on board the Superb. Respecting this force, it was absurdly reported yesterday, that it was intended to take possession of the Russian fleet, now lying at Gibraltar, and conduct it into an English port. Such a proceeding we consider as altogether unne- cessary. Sir Samuel Hood, it is said, is to have the com- mand of the squadron now fitting out with great activity at Plymouth, for a secret Expedition.—. Sir Samuel is at Portsmouth, from whence he is to proceed to Plymouth in the Centaur.

THIS morning, ere yet 1 arose from my bed, Your Birth- day, deal Mother, can-. e into my head, With a heart lull of pleasure I welcom'd the date That marks your arrival at Seventy- eight. Then reflecting how few, either women or men, E'er attain to the limits of three score and ten, I ador'd the AI. MICHTY, whose goodness so great Had preserv'd your existence to Seventy- eight. But when I consider'd the years that are fled, And of those you lov'd living how many are dead! Surely vain, I exclaim'd, is this mortal estate, And I pity'd the sorrows of Seventy- eight! Still, to those who so number the days that pass o'er, As of virtue and wisdom to lay up a store, Whose wishes are humble, whose thoughts are sedate, Some comforts remain e'en at Seventy- eight. Yes, they who have eatly accomplish'd the mind, E'en in sickly old age many blessings may find; And such is the case, I exult while 1 say't, Of my excellent mother of Seventy- eight! Iler patience and piety, goodness and sense, Will live in remembrance many years hence; Her praises too highly 1 never can rate, Nor recount half her merits at Seventy- eight. Her tender regard, her attention and care, 1 have tilt from a child, but want words to declare; Oh' let me then pay, ere it yet be too late, Due homage to her and to Seventy- eight. Contented I'd live in the lowest degree, To see her from care and anxiety free; And while some court the rich, others flatter the great, I bow to my mother of Seventy . eight. Might I live to behold her an hundred years older, In the arms of affection 1 still would enfold her; No distance of time should my ardour abate, I'm so fond of my mother of Seventy- eight. Ami now I have only to sing or to say, Way you see many happy returns of the day; And, another year gone, may the office be mine, To hail your arrival at Seventy- nine! C O 1* Y Of a remarkable INSCRIPTION on a MONUMSNT, lately erected in Horsleydown Church, in Cumberland. He'e lie the Bodies OfTnoMAsBoND and MARY his Wife. She was Temperate, Chaste, and Charitable; BUT . She was Proud, Peevish, and Passionate. She was an affectionate Wife, and tender Mother; BUT Her Husband and Child, whom she loved, Seldom saw her countenance without a disgusting frown, Whilst she received Visitors, whom she despised, with an endearing smile. Her behaviour was discreet towards strangers; BUT Imprudent in her Family. Abroad, her conduct was influenced by good bleeding; BUT At home, by ill- temper. She was a professed enemy to flattery, And was seldom known to praise or commend; BUT The talents in which she principally excelled, V/ ere difference of opinion, and discovering flaws and imperfections. She was an admirable Economist, And. without Prodigality, Dispensed I'lenty to every Person in her Family; BUT Would sacrifice their eyes to a farthing candle. She sometimes made her Husband happy, with her good Qualities; BUT Much more frequently miserable, with her many failings; Insomuch, that in thirty years' cohabitation he often Lamented, that, maugrc all her Virtues, he Had not, in the whole, enjoyed two Yeais ot Matrimonial Comfort. AT LENGTH, Finding that she had lost the affections of her Husband, As well as the regard of her Neighbours, Family disputes having been divulged by Servants, She died of Vexation, July 20, 1768, Aged 48 years. Her worn- out Husband survived her four months and two days, And departed this life, Nov. 28, 1768, In the 54th year of his age. WILLIAM BOND, brother to the deceased, Erected this Stone, fts a Weekly Monitor to the surviving Wives of this Parish, That they may avoid the infamy Of having their Memories handed down to Posterity With a patch- work Character. —- in Post- Horses.— The season has already arrived when these poor beasts experience the full mea- sure of their tortures. The winter promises to end the career of many of them.— Oil Tuesday, in the short distance bet' een Glaston and Morcot, in Rutlandshire, two post- horses lay dead on the road, and the sight is becoming very common on all the roads of much traffic. The admirable lines of the feeling Bloomfield are a lesson to impatient travellers, which would be well remembered at this season:— All chains were freedom, every toil repose. Could the poor put. horse te( l thee all his woes; Shew thee his bleeding shoulders, and untold The dreadful anguish he endures for gold : Hir'd at each call of business, lust, or rage, Tlut prompt the trav'ller on from stage to stage. Still on his strength depends their boasted speed ; For them his limbs grow weak, his bare ribs bleed; And though he groaning quickens at command, Their extra shilling in the rider's hand Becomes his bitter scourge:—' tis he must feel The double efforts of the lash and steei; Till when, up hill, the destin'd inn he gains, And trembling under complicated pains, Prone from his nostrils, darting on the ground, His breath emitted floats in clouds around; Drops chase each other down his chest and sides, And spatter'd mud his native colour hides; Thro' his swoln veins the boiling torrent. Sows, And every nerve a separate torture knows. Ah, well for him if here his sufT'rings ceas'd, And ample hours of rest his pains appeas'd I But rous'd again, and sternly bade to rise And shake refreshing slumber from his eyes, Ere his exhausted spirits can return, Or through his frame reviving ardour burn, Cdlne forth he must, tho' 1 imping, maim'd and sore; He hears the whip, the chaise is at the door:— The collar tightens, and again he feels His half- hcal'd wounds inflam'd; again the wheels With tiresome sameness in his ears resound. Thus nightly robb'd, and injur'd day by day, His piece- meal murd'rers wear his life away. COURT ot KING's- BENCH, Saturday, Nov. 7. COUNTRY BANKS. Giles Forrest v. Perkins Sf Co. Mr. Garrow moved for a rule to, set aside the verdict in this case. It was an action brought to recover the. sum of .18,000, and was ons of great importance to the commercial world, and also of great consequence to country bankers. The defendants were the assignees of Dickenson & Co. persons who carried on the business of bankers A « Birmingham, and they were entitled to the sum for which they had taken their verdict, provided certain bills of exchange, paid into their bunk, were to be considered as the property of the plaintiffs, and not of the bankers. This case depended upon the manner in which the business between the plaintiffs and the bankers was carried on; ami it is extremely different from the manner in which it is carried on in London. To point out that difference, he should contrast the two modes of carrying on business. If bills, which are not yet due, were paid in by a customer to a banker in London, the London banker writes it short in his book, and does not carry it to the credit of his customer until these bills be paid; not so with the country bankers, such as those now concerned in the present action. They had always dealt iu this manner: when a customer came to their counter, and made a payment of cash or undue paper, it was deemed a payment made to his credit The banker considered such bills as his own, and made use of them to serve his own purposes; and in many instances, in order to save the expences of stamps, he actually gave away the undue paper, in payments to other cus- tomers, using a bill of exchange not due, a guinea, or a Bank of England note, equally as his own property. T he three notes which constituted the subject of the present case, were not yet due, and therefore the plaintiffs then insisted that this was money of theirs which they had a right to take from the banker, because, if the bankruptcy had not taken place, they were not entitled to specie. This matter was tried at Guildhall, and the Jury, uniting in opinion with the Judge, formed their judgment upon the London practice, because all these bills were indorsed when put into the banker's hands. This, however, must necessarily be so. In London, bills are paid in a state of negociation; but, not- withstanding their having an indorsement, a London banker would not give credit to his customer for a single shilling. He ( the Counsel) was in a state to produce evidence that country bankers considered these as a gross payment, and that the parties charged interest both ways.— T his was not like a case where a bill was paid in against another bill. Lord Ellenborough-—" The Jury had a strong opinion that every person who pays bills into the hands of a banker, pays them to an agent, to re- ceive money for them; and, in case tiiey give credit for these bills, they will have suit against that party, by means of an indorsement; these bills, therefore, remain as a dry deposit," Rule refused.
