( Paper and print A Monday's and Tuesday's Posts. FOREIGN N E W S. FLUSHING, Jan. 17. T one o'clock on the mariiing of tile ! 5tli, the tide rose over the quays, and being driven by a vio- lent wind, poured in torrents through all the streets of the lower town— the inundation was so rapid, as to have attained great height belore it was perceived, and many. had scarcely time to remove their children out of bed to a place of greater safety. In less than half an hour, the water in many places was nine feet deep, and, in the lower ' streets, more than fourteen, so that in some low house;, the inhabitants could only save themselves 011 the roofs. With liow much rapidity the water advanced wilt appear from the following instance : in the Paling- straat, a wo- man was found drowned, lying half out of bed, witli her youngest child in her arms: her eldest child wa likewise out of bed, hut in consequence, no duubt, of the rapid rise of the water, they were al! three found lifeless. At the break of day the v/ ir. d abated, and the water de- ceasing with the ebb, the water left the houses 011 the town i; uay, but it still continued in the lower parts of the town, anil was of a very considerable, depth till the fol- lowing day. Many person1-, in. boats and other small vessel's, • then conveyed some scanty supplies of provisions and water to the inhabitants in the Upper stories, and on the top" of the houses. The water on the vineyard quay, at the magazine ot provisions of the French empire, made a great breach, through which beams of ship timber were driven with so much violence, that tliey greatly damaged and endangered several houses, and entirely threw down other's, - causing the death of soveral persons. A great number of horses', aud cattle standing in the stalls id' the deal. r=, were drowned. This calamity was still more aggravated by a frost setting in, which rendered it necessary, as long as the frost lasted, arid no lain fell, to fetch rain water from Middlebourgh, what fresh water they before had having been spoiled by the salt water. Twenty- nine persons, who lost their lives on this occa- sion, have been buried at the exp nice of the town ; and subscriptions have been Opened for the relief of the sufferers. MARK- LANE, Monday, M. I. Wc hail a considerable airival of Wheat to- day from Essex and Kent, with some quantity fresh up from Suffolk, but not much from any greater distance. The mealing demand at the opening proved ex- tremely slack, but a decline of about 2a. per quarter being complied with in the terms, there was some clearance made towards noon. Spring Corn is here m sufficient plenty, of most sorts-; White red- seH. more heavily again ; Grey Pkos arc cheaper; Tick Beans, v& ich, under the firat- imprtssion rnide. by the American embargo the latter end of last Week, advanced a little in value, found no eager, sale, this . rooming, even at the prices of this day se'nnight: Oats also'are stither dull than otherwise.

[ 844 A L! LONDON, MONDAY, FEUkUARY 1. French Momteurs to the 26th ult. have arrived, since our last, but their contents are not interesting. Bonaparte is making arrangements for the improvement of his dock- yards; there are to be 18 companies of abont 270 men ea* S>, and to be divided in sub- divi ioni of 18. It is in contemplation in France to plant and cultivate the cotton tree in the Southern province of that country. The Rn am Seel is fitting at Constant with great acti- vity ; S6t » rO".- ga'. lies are to follow it when it sails fof Co- penhagen, Ti: er.. are numerous corps of troops ta be em- barked for that place. TUe last letters from America state, that the funds of the United States had fallen from 03 to 50, under the general, dread of a rupture with Great Britain. At the departure of the last accounts from India, an expedition was forming on tke Commanded coast, for a secret enterprize. Government, it is said, will r. ily require ten mil- lions for the Loan of the ensuir.- g year. The sum is to be burrowed in the 3 per cents, a id to be paid off at 80. The Property Ta* produced la-- t year frtjrteen million?, and the - linking Fund two millions, the Short, Annuities faffing in. These eireunutoacts will enable thjMi'nister to borrow the ten millions without imposing any ne- v taxes-. The Princess Elizabeth is about to establish a Fund for the portioning young women of virtuous character, inhabitants Of Windsor, in marriage. The portion to each is to be ten pound;, and the subscription is countenanced by the other Princesses, and persons of rank and conse quence. Admiral Bli^ h is recalled from the Government of New South Wales. . The Lords of the Admiralty have approved of a new portable Telegraph. It is attended with mush tes; expeirce and trouble than the present Tub- graphs, the working of which, at each station,' requires four meu, whereas, upon the new plan, one mail will be sufficient for each station. It is tbe invention of a Mr. ConoOy. The Count de Vajix has invented a machine which will shew the Latitude and Longitude at Sea, serving also for weighing any object, for measuring space, or the course of a ship, and time; shewing and keeping account upon dials, ami upon cosmographical columns, which are part of the machine ; and shewing also the leeway of a ship.— Part of the machine is applicable to other purposes. SETTLEMENTS.— It has been determined in the Court of Kiel's Bench, that an individual, who had enlisted as a soldier, and de- erted, and afterwards hired himself as a servant for a t'. v'elvemol. tii, and duly served that period, had not gained a settlement, inasmuch as the hiring w as illegal, he being a deserter, and consequently no legal results emld attach upou'it. This was an important deci- sion, because it ha; at times been considered, that a twelvemonth's servitude, under any circumstances, enti- tled an individual to a settlement. This is the first instance to the contrary. DUEL.— On Saturday the 23d ult. a meeting fook placc ill the county of Clare, between W. Hammond, Esq. of Limerick, and William Foley, Esq. of Shepperton. On firing, tlv former gentleman received the ball of the latter in the wrist, and Mr. Foley received a mortal wound, the bail entering hi; ide, pas, ed through the intestine?,' and perforated the spine, lie was taken off th » ground to the biu- e of Mr. Millar, r., miheeary, in Limerick, where tivery aid was afforded him ; but he expired on Sunday night., at f- Lven o'clock, in great agony. On Tuesday last, at Godmineheter, as Mrs. Pearee, the mother of Colonel Pearce, was standing by the fire, it is • uppoied a spark flew out, and set her veil in a blaze, which corarausi'- eating to the other parts of her dress, burnt her in so shocking a manner, as to taiwe her immediate death. " On Pridav night., about a quarter before twelve o'clock, a fire was il - wavered in the lenvi of Mr. I tales, grocer, in I'rinee's- stveet, the comer of Angel- Court, near Storey* j- If. ate, VI. ' ttnirtster. PitlVrent fire engines were soon on the spot, but the houses being very old, tbe flames quickly extended « . o Vt- e houses of Mr. Shvriey, cheesemonger and poulterer, ami of Mr. Oddy, the Bull's Head public- house, adjoining. Those throe, together •.',•;> n ihe house of Mr. Cl '. rke, a butcher^ iu the " onrt, and three others, were destroyed by the flames. " The greatest consternation pre- vailed iu the neighborhood, from tlie idea of the confined situation in whith the fire took place, the oldncss of the bouses, ami the great quantity of wood in their composi- tion. Tue JKXIT alarmed inhabitants tiew in all directions tor shelter." They were deprived of their all, but most, fortunately saved their lives. The only one who received any personal injury was a peer unfortunate female, who went to gaze through idle curiosity at the Satire ; a beam of timber iVll from one Of the houses h> to the street, and broke both her kgs aud her ancles. She was carried to the Westminster Int'uvnary. The engines played the greater part of Saturday. Tite place exhibits a melancholy heap of ruins. A subscription is set on toot far the relief of the sufferers. An alarming fire broke out on Saturday night, about twelve o'clock, on the premises of Mr. Sawyer, at Shaw- fitrni, Herts, which was occasioned by a servant setting >. fire to some straw iu a hen- roost whilst catching poultry. The loft where the fire broke out wa^ contiguous to a apaciou", barn, which contained a great quantify of tin- thraslied corn, and which was totally consume i in le s than half an hour. The ' lames were , e.- e-. entc: l spreading to the dwirfling- house and other out- buiSdiiig, hy a favou- raWe Wind. Some pigs and two horses were destroyed, and damage doae to the a<* jurvt of ibueit S000#. TO ARCHITECTS. WILTS COUNTY BRIDEWELL.

MONDAY, Feb. 1.] Lord Viscount Catheart was intro- duced by Lords Viscount Wentworth and Lake. His patent of creation having been read at the table, his Lordship took the oaths and his seat. Lord Auckland gave notice of his intention to present a petition on Wednesday, for the appointment of a special day for hearing the Appeal respecting the Roxburgh Estates, autl state his reasons for moving to that effect. The Lord Chancellor communicated the Thanks of the House severally to Lord Viscount Catheart and Lord G mbier.

TUESDAY, Feb. 2.] Mr. - Bankes, accompanied by Lord Mar- sham, the Hon. Mr. Ward, Col. Mathew, and a considerable number of Members, appeared at the bar, and presented from the Commons a Bill to prohibit the granting of Places in Reversion, or for joint lives, with benefit of survivorship ; which was forthwith read a first time, and ordered to be printed. The Karl of Mount brought ill a Bill for. the Amend- ment of the Laws of Debtor and Creditor, and for the punishment of Fraudulent Debtors, which was read a first time, aud ordered to be printed.— Adjourned.

The bill for Prohibiting the Granting of Offices in Re- version, or for Joint Lives, was read a third time, and passed. Mr. JVindkam moved, that there be laid before the House an account of the number of men raised for the regular army, by tueaus of the ordinary mode of recruiting, from the 1st of July, 1307, to the latest period at which the returns could be made, with a comparative list of the nu liber of men raised in the same period, from the 1st of Judy, 180a; An account of the number of deserters from the regular army in the period abovementioned ; Ail account of the number of men who have volunteered from the militia into the regular force, within the above- mentioned period, specifying the regiments into which they have entered; and An account of the return of the actual state of the militia force.— Ordered. Mr. Robert Ward brought up the Report of the Com- mittee of Supply, and the resolutions were read a first and second time, and agreed to.— Adjourned. TUESDAY, Feb. 2.] The Hou= e in a Committee of the whole House, to consider of a motion for allowing Goods to be brought into the Ports of Great Britain in Portuguese ships, Mr. Robert Ward in the chair; Mr. Hose explained the necessity of allowing such a course to be taken under the present circumstances, and the state of the affairs of the Portuguese Court; which could not be done without the authority of an Act of Parliament, because the Navigation Act prohibited bring- ing into our ports any goods except in British ships, or those of the country from whence the goods came. He therefore moved, that the chairman be directed to move the House foe leave to bring in a bill to permit the impor- tation of Goods into Great Britain, by Portuguese ships, from the Continent of South America. Lord II. Petty asked, whether Sugars were to be in- cluded in the permission ? Mr. Hose said they were, under an high duty. The motion was then agreed to. Mr. M. A. Taylor, at the request of Mr. Secretary Canning, deferred his promised motion on the subject of the Dardanelles expedition to Thursday the 11th inst. A Committee was ballotted to try the merits of the Banbury Election petition. Mr. Eden moved an humble Address to his Majesty for an official copy of the communication made by the Presi- dent of the United States ( alluded to in his Majesty's Speech) to both Houses of Co: gross. Mr. Secretary Canning said there was no objection to the motion, which passed unanimously. Mr. Tierney moved ( preparatory to the Right Hon. Gen- tleman, Mr. Perceval, bringing on the business relative to the Bank on Monday) for Copies of all Correspondence sin; .- the 1st of May 1307, between the First Lord of the Treasury, the Chancellor of tbe Exchequer, and the Go- vernor i. nd Deputy Governor of the Bank of England, respecting the arrangement of the National Debt", the application of unclaimed Dividends, and the Loan of Money. The Chancellor of the Exchequer observed, the arrange- ment would by no means benefit the Bank. He could not s * e any public grounds for exposing the communication, 1 hough he would not objeot to it. A great deal had passed i n personal interviews, and the correspondence in writing principally referred to the arguments on the former inter- view .. Mr. Thornton and Mr. Haskisson made similar observa- tions, and then the motion was agreed to. Mr. Hushisson moved tor an account of the Balances arising from Unclaimed Dividends as it stood at tbe last quarter,— Ordered.— Adjourned. Several Paris Journals were received yesterday, and another arrival this morning completed the series to the 2Sth ult. From a number of articles in these Journals, it appears that popular discontent has begun to manifest itself in various parts of the Continent. As these articles are no otherwi. se deserving of notice, we shall not occupy our limited space by inserting them at length. A letter from Leipsic states, that the French troops have rendered essen- tial services in repressing some disorders, " the inevitable consequences of the war."— The King of Bavaria also has been obliged to make a circuitous route ill a journey to Munich, in order to avoid the dangers of the more direct road. Among other interesting articles in the Moniteurs, they contain the reports of the Minister for Foreign Affairs upon the motives whieh induced France to make war against Portugal—- of the Minister of War relative to the measures necessary to be adopted at the present crisis— and of the Government to the Senate upon the necessity of calling out the conscription of 1809. The motives for the last measure are stated to be to carry war into the heart of England, Ireland, or our Indian possessions. " So far from diminishing the military force ef France, it ought," Says the Minister of War, " to be increased till England shall have recognised the independence of all Powers, and restored to the seas the repose which France has given to the Continent.— No rest till the sea shall be rendered free." Iti the reports upon Portugal, the Minister for Foreign Affairs supposes we meditate an attack upon Cadiz anel Ceuta. Spain also entertains such apprehensions. These papers likewise contain two decrees of the Conservative Senate; one of which places 80,000 conscripts of the year I 80Q at the service of the Go vernment ; and by the other Kehl, Cassel, Wesel, and Flushing, with their dependencies, are annexed to the French Empire. The Danes have seized a vessel under Russian colours in the Sound, which they state to have had false papers on board, and to have been loaded with English goods. Her cargo is valued at 100,000 rix- dollars. The appearance of some English ships of war in the Sound has excited considerable alarm in Denmark for the safety of some valuable homeward- bound Indiamen. A neutral vessel arrived yesterday from France.— She had sailed on the 13th ult. from a port in Normandy, and at that time there was no embargo there. She was, however, obliged, some days after, to put into La Hogue, where she was informed that an embargo had been imposed in all the French ports, and instantly put to sea to avoid detention. The Intelligent gun brig, Lieut. Tucker, has been on shore near Dieppe, hut got off again without damage. Every preparation was made to give the enemy a wai'm re- ception in case they had annoyed the brig during her cri- tical situation. Government are said to have received some infor- mation respecting the Rochefort squadron, which leads to a supposition that it is primarily destined for the supply of tbe French West India Islands, and ultimately to act in consequence of some arrangements which have taken place with the United States of America. It must be still within the memory of our readers, that two years since, a French squadron escaped out. of Toulon, under nearly the same circumstances, and making imme- diately for the French West India Islands, carried supplies to them all; and though followed by two British squadrons, effected its purpose, and escaped back into Brest. Letters from Oporto of the 20th ult. have been received in town. The writers describe their present situation as lamentable, and their prospects equally deplorable. They are suffering under a scarcity of provisions; and this calamity is aggravated by the obligation of supporting 15,000 Spanish troops. It was yesterday reported, on the authority of letters said to have been received from Rotterdam, that Ituv- ia had form ally declared war'Sgainst Sweden.— Such an event is probable; and on its probability alone perhaps the rumour, though premature, may have arisen. At a numerous Meeting of the Roman Catholic inhabi- tants of the town and county of the town of Cahvay, the 22dult. it was—" Resolved unanimously, That we concur in opinion with the Roman Catholic Committee of Dublin, and adopt the Petition prepared last year by the said Peti- tion's being presented to the Imperial Parliament this Session." The papers moved for by Mr. Ponsonby, respecting the negociations with Russia subsequent to the treaty of Tilsit, were on Monday laitl before the House of Commons. They comprise the whole of the diplomatic correspondence between our Ministers and those of Russia, commencing on the 30tli of August and ending on the 9th of November last,— On the 30th of ACtgust, Lord G. L. Gower, our Am- bassador at St. Petersburgh, requested from the Russian Minister, General Budberg, a communication of the secret articles entered into at Tilsit, when General Budberg ad- mitted that there were secret articles, and followed this avowal with a note, stating that the Emperor of Russia had " just learned, with the utmost surprize, by accounts from his Minister at Copenhagen, as well as by a dispatch from his Danish Majesty's Minister at this Court, that Mr. Jackson, his Britannic Majesty's Plenipotentiary, has made propositions as derogatory to, as incompatible with, the dignity of every independent Power, and that, upon the re- fusal of the Prince Royal of Denmark to accede to a preten- sion so extraordinary, the English fleet has taken a position which evidently announces intentions hostile towards Den- mark." To this Lord G. L. Gower replied, that the British Ministry had been along time in possession of positive data, which left no doubt as to the intentions of the French Go- vernment to use the Danish fleet for the invasion cf the British Isles.— Mr. Secretary Canning, in a letter to Lord G. L. Gower, dated Sept. 27, approves his Lordship's conduct, and states the following as the conditions on which the mediation of Russia could be accepted by this country, viz. 1st, The frank communication of the articles of the Treaty of Tilsit, secret as well as avowed ;— 2dly, a distinct ex- planation of the basis oil which France proposes to treat, and which appeared to his Imperial Majesty, when at Tilsit, so just and honourable.— In the mean time Lord G. L. Gower avowed the principles on which the English Govern- ment had attacked Denmark ; and Mr. Canning, in a letter dated the 28th of September, asserts that his Majesty's Ministers had positive information from Portugal of the use the French intended to make of the Danish fleet, and urges Russia to interfere with her mediation to make up the quarrel between England and Denmark. Previous, however, to the receipt of this letter, General Budlierg was succeeded by Count Soltikoff, who refused to commu- nicate the secret articles ; and lie was soon succeeded by- Count Romanzow, who is stated by Lord G. L. Gowcr to have been very unfriendly to England.— In a letter of the 28th of October, his Lordship informs Mr. Canning, that Count Romanzow had said he would not be answerable for the consequences of the attack of Copenhagen ; and in a subsequent letter of the 2f) th, he says the Count had in- formed him Russia could not interfere ill the business. Lord G. L. Gower then demanded the reasons for refusing to communicate the secret articles of Tilsit, but could obtain no satisfactory answer; and on his urging the Russian Minister for a reply, Count Romanzow informed his Lord- hip, that his Imperial Majesty had broken off all communication with England— a result which his Lordship imputes to the growing influence of France over the Councils of Russia. These papers leave no doubt of the existence of a pre- vious league between the Emperor Alexander and Napoleon, against the particular interests of this « country.— That there were secret Articles in the Treaty of Tilsit is admitted; that they contaiiieil no provision immediately hostile to this country is indeed loosely said by the Russian Ministers, who add, that thev cannot be divulged, because the Emperor of Russia had given his word that they should not.— The Russian Ministers also refused to give any explanation of the basis on whieh the French were willing to make peace, and which the Emperor of Russia had thought proper to consider honourable aud satisfactory. And yet his Imperial Majesty reproaches our Guveruuieat for having rejected his proffered mediation! A paragraph which lias appeared, stating that the Hon. General St. John had been tried by a Court- martial and broke, is not quite correct. General St. John has not been tried; but a speial board of General Officers was ap- pointed by his Majesty, to enquire into his conduct at the battle of Laswarre ; the report of which board being con- sidered by the Commander in Chief as unfavourable, he has communicated to General St. John, that it is not his Majesty's intention to appoint him to any military com- mand. In the violent gale of the 14th ult. a post- windmill at Barrow was blown down, anil the owner, named Hemp- stead, had a very narrow escape for his life; as, in at- tempting to turn it round, he was thrown from the stairs over a building into his yard, by whieh fall he was inueh bruised.— It is very singular, that in the gale on New Year's- day, ( about 7 years ago) the same mill was blown down, and nearly destroyed.— These two circumstances have almost ruined the poor miller. A few days since a windmill, belonging to Mr. Hines, near Melton Mowbray, was blown down. Mr. 11. and his son had just quitted the mill, leaving the journeyman, who on perceiving tin: fabric totter, leaped from the top of the stairs to the bottom, and bounded over the fence whieh inclosed tlx- mill, when he fell down; at this instant the whole 111,1.-: fLdl within a few feet of him, without eloing him the least injury.— Such a providential escape is seldom paralleled. I. NCOSSTANCV.-^- The marriage of a respectable trades- man of Beverley, with a lady of that place, was fixed for one day last week ; the ring was bought, and every pre- paration made; but on his going in the merning to call upon the intended bride, he found, to his great surprize, that she had setoff that morning on a matrimonial jaunt to Seulcoates Church, with a Serjeant in the East York Militia. BREAD.- - A Court of Aldermen was held yesterday at Guildhall, which was attended by the Master and Wardens of the Baker's Company; and after hearing them, and in- specting the meaUveighex-' s returns of the average prices of wheat and flour lor the last week, the Court directed an advance of half an assize in the peck loaf, making the price of the quartern loaf, wheateu, 1 Hrf. household 10 the embargo, and under- tanding that, on the 17th of Sep- tember, the French Government gave a different expla- nation of its decrees frpm that previously adhered to, and determined rigorously to execute it, he was led to hope, that this conduct of tire French Government might be the motive for the embargo. The motion was agreed to, as were also two other motions of Lord Holland, for certain proceedings in the Court of Admiralty. Earl Grey complained of rumours having again been circulated, he did not know whether maliciously, but cer- tainly falsely, of the late Ministers having attacked Alexan- dria whilst we were at Peace with tbe Porte. He felt it to be his duty under ? uch circumstances to move on a future day ( probably on Thursday) for several papers connected with that expedition, and particularly for tbe Instructions Sent to our Minister at Constantinople, and the Officers employed, when he was convinced it would appear that the conduct of the late Ministers was in every respect con- sistent with good fsith. His object in this instance was not merely personal feeling, but the vindication of the honout and gi^ od faith of the country. The Curates Suspension Bill was read a second time, and ordered to be committed. Adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS. WEDNESDAY, Feb. 3. Mr. Bathurst obtained leave to bring iu a Bill for the improvement of the Port oi' Bristol. Mr. Rose gave notice, that he would to- morrow move for leave to bring in a Bill to amend the Treasury of the Navy Act, pursuant to the recommendation of the Com- missioners of Naval Inquiiy. Tne Brazil Ship Bill was read a first time, The House resolved itself into a Committee of Ways and Means, Mr. Ward in the chair, and agreed to a resolution moved by Mr. Huskisson, for regulating the duty paid on Property, as far as relates to the places and pensions held under Government, particularly exceeding 100/. a- year. The Chancellor vf the Exchequer moved, that the Rev. John Woodkouse do preach on the Fast Day, on the 17th inst. before the House ; which was agreed to. Sir C. Pole moved for leave to bring in a bill, directing that all Offices held in the Naval Asylum shall be filled by persons who have served his Majesty in the Navy ; but after a long discussion, he agreed to withdraw his motion til! the regulations for the Asylum should be laid before the House. Sir C. Pole next moved for a copy of the warrant ap- pointing the commissioners; which was agreed to ; and for an account of the persons appointed officers of the said Asylum, salaries, & c. Ordered. He then moved for a list of the persons who have made applications for offices in the instil utioh. Mr. Rose objected, on the grounds that several repect- abie ladies, the widows of officers, applied for the situation of matron, and he submitted the indelicacy of laying their names before the House. The House divided for the last motion, Aye's 75, Noes 130— Majority against it 115. Mr. G. Ponsonby rose to make his promised motion re- lative to the Copenhagen Expedition. The object he had i view was. he said, to a. certain how ta1' his Majesty's Ministers had been justified in advising his Majesty to employ his forces on that expedition. That this was a subject which peculiarly demanded the inquiry of the House, he was fully authorised to state on the Declaration i ". ltd by his Majesty himself, in the first clause of which htf declares that he" owes to himself and Europe a frank •^ position of the motives which had dictated his conduct with regard to Denmark. It was scarcely necessary to premise, that all the remarks he had to make must be understood to refer to his Majesty's Ministers, and not to his Majesty himself, to whosa native rectitude and he our he was convinced that the transaction was as opposite as it had been disgraceful to the projectors of it, and disadvan- tageous to the country. He argued, that from the limited means which Denmark possessed of fitting out a fleet, the Government of . that country must of necessity manifest the intention to do so, many months before such intention could be fulfilled ; if, therefore, Denmark had actually meditated hostility against Great Britain, it was impossible to conceive that she would not have demonstrated that lurking intention before the period of Lord Gambier's arrival in the Sound. He asked, therefore, if his Majesty's Resident at Copenhagen had sent any advices to this effect? His Majesty's'Ministers had told him, that they meant to refuse an answer ; he hoped the House would not agree with them. When Admiral Gtimbier was preparing to sail, many of the Danish Captains, hearing among other rumours, that it was as likely that the British force was destined against Denmark as against any other place, consulted the Danish Consul on the subject. The Consul applied to the Chamber of Commerce in Copenhagen, a branch of the public . administration of Government. He received for answer, that there Was not the smallest ground for anxiety or alarm on the part of the Danish mercantile interest, for that no such circumstances existed which tended to di- tnrb the neutrality of Denmark, or to place her in a state of hostility with Great. Britain. At the time that this answer was received, there were 350 Danish Ships in British ports, whose cargoes amounted to two millions sterling. Was it possible to suppose, that under these circumstances, when the. d) ani- h Government de- clared to her commercial interest that they need not hurry themselves— that there was no fear of an interruption of the good understanding with Great Britain;— was it possible to suppose, that when a third of the commercial property of Denmark was in our hands, the Danish Govern- ment meditated hostility against us? Such a thing was incredible. But it was said, that, though Denmark herself might entertain no hostile disposition, against Great. Britain, she was likely soon to be forced into a state of hostility. One of his Resoultions went, to ascertain what information his Majesty's Ministers had l'ec ' ived respecting the power that France possessed of seizing the Danish navy. It. had been said, that France, having taken Jutland and Holstein, might have marched an . army across tbe Great Belt, when frozen, and have seized the Danish fleet. He had consulted books, and other authentic sources of in- formation ou the subject, and lie diil not find that any considerable force had passed the Great Belt » n the ice for above 150 years. It had rarely happened that even indi- viduals had been enabled to cross in that maimer. It was well known that the cold in most, of the European States was not now what it had'been. The draining of morasses, the cutting of forests, and the general cultivation a id im- provement of countries, had made great alterations in their climates, so that not only had no troops passed the Great Belt on the ice during the last 150 years, but during the last 60 years no instance had occurred in which that arm of the sea had been so bound up by'frost that a General would have ventured to march a: i army across it. It was said that Ministers had secret information that by tbe. Treaty of Tilsit Russia had guaranteed to France the use of the Danish fleet for invading this country. He defied them to produce any paper which would prove this assertion : the papers on the Table proved indeed that they had actitd without information. He therefore moved,—" That an humble Address be presented to his Majesty, praying that he will be graciously pleased to give directions that there be laid before the House the substance and dates of all in- formation transmitted by his Majesty's Ministers at the Court of Copenhagen, at any period during' the last year, " respecting the naval force of Denmark, and particularly with respect to any measures adopted to augment, the same, or of [ jutting it in a state of forward preparation, or in procuring. seamen to man the same in any part thereof." Mr. Secretary Canning' rose, anil in a speech of great length, replied to the arguments of the Right Honourable Gentleman. He was well convinced that Ministers had obtained what they deserved, the thanks of their country, for the success ot the expedition against Copenhagen, as that enterprise . had been in a great degree the salvation of the country. Whatever might be the decision of the House ou the present occasion, he should contemplate ii with the highest satisfaction, as Ministers had been ac- cused of various things in which they had no eo yefn. if was fully fCware that Ministers had receive ! n) htard if glory from their predecessors, and there could be no com- • parison between tbe success which crowned the Copenhagen been done by e. terpri^ k when contrasted with what h « d the late Administration. The designs of Fi glad to find, were not disputed, as it was one of Bona- parte's most favourite objects, now that the idea of an in- vasion had been in some measure given up, but not relin- quished, to exclude the trade of Great Britain from the Continent, by combining the naval forc.^ of the rest of Europe for the exclusion and consequent depression of our commerce. In all his capitulations and decrees he most manifestly declares his'design, and his firm and inveterate determination, to persevere in such a confederacy, in which nothing should prevent Denmark from being au associate. When the fir. it danger menaced the frontiers of Denmark, it was the French force that occupied Hanover in the year 1803. This cordon of troops was however withdrawn when the troops of Sweden and England en- tered Holstein. After the battle of Auerstadt, Denmark was violated by the French, and a Danish General taken prisoner, and was treated at the French head quarters with every species of contumely and disrespect. He would ask if this was a mark of respect for the Danes, for one of their Generals so to be used ? The Dani h forces were, however, compelled to retreat from the frontiers of Hol- stein, which had given rise to a calumny against this country, that they had sn retreated at our express - olici- tation. For that, however, there was not the most distant foundation. After that Prince Murat was sent by Bona- parte to tbe King of Sweden, entreating that Monarch to make common cause with France, and promising him, in that event, Norway, which belonged to Denmark, the King of Sweden instantly communicated this offer to the Prince Royal of Denmark, and offered him 20,000 troops for tite defence of Holstejft. This generous offer tbe Prince Royal refused, believing be could rely on the assurances of France ; and he did more ; he concealed from England the fact of the French offer of Norway to Sweden. Having stated these and other points, the Right Hon. Gentleman appealed to the House whether or not it would have been v. ise or prudent in Ministers to have relied on the fidelity a: ta independence of Denmark, especially after the warnings she had received. After IIamburgh had been evacuated by the French, the Holstein gate. was re- occu- pied on the 19th of November; and on the 21st of that month came forth the famous decree of Bonaparte against the commerce of England. Ministers resorted to a measure of retaliation; but of a. meek kind when contrasted with the decree ;— theii came fury and rage from Denmark, and tbe world knew the result. The French decree caused many remonstrances to Bonaparte, and a deputation from Hamburgh waited upon that person. They represented to him the utter ruin which threatened them, by the annihi- lation of their intercourse with England. The answer of Bonaparte was, that he was fully determined to put an end to all commerce ; that as England and commerce were linked together, the one should be put an end to, and England would of course fall. His mind, he said, was made up, and he would compel every Power on the Con- tinent to combine with him for that purpose. Mr. Can- ning, after these statements, went at great length into the general policy of the attack at Copenhagen, which he justified email its grounds, and on others of . comparison; lie could not assimilate that achievement to the business at Alexandria, that of the Dardanelles, or of Constanti- nople. After some further ramaks. " lie concluded by giving the Resolution his most decided and hearty negative. Mr. Windham allowed the Hon. Secretary to be ac- quainted with stage effect; but through the whole of his speech, call it acting, or by any other name, there never was such insanity exhibited. Ministers had assumed a new morality: himself, and others of the old school of morality, considered it necessary to state facts correctly; but these moralists of the new doctrine stated former occurrences incorrectly. They had introduced a new system, and, like I'rospero, they would, perhaps, in a few days; leave off their new morality, and abjure their magic. The Right Hon. Gentleman deprecated all the measures adopted by the present Ministers, and accused them of sacrificing the reputation of the country. Mr. Mi. lnes reprobated the line of conduct adopted by the Gentlemen opposite. They attempted, he said, to impute to Ministers a disregard for the abstract principles of justice; but the insinuation was unfounded. He knew that the measure had the approval of that class of man wbo had minds to think for themselves, and never framed their opinion according to thar of a Noble Viscount or a Member ol that House. Mr. II. ISathurst argued against tho conduct of Ministers, in refusing to produce the documents, on which alone the House could forma proper opinion. Mr. Foster ( Member for the University of Dublin) argued that the papers on th'? table proved the hostile dis- position of Denmark towards us, and justified Ministers in the attack of Copenhagen. Lord Palmerston conceived that the present motion was precluded by the Address voted on the first day of the Session, by which t>, e House still stood pledged. He vin- dicated the expedition, by the state of Europe, and the necessity there was of guarding against the danger by which we were threatened. Its justification, he said, might be stated in twovvords— Denmark lyul a fleet and was weak— France was our enemy, and was powerful. Mr. Morris was of opinion, that the attack upon Copen- hagen was justifiable on the ground of the well- known de- termination of France to force the Powers of the Continent into a confederacy hostile to this country, and the inability of Denmark to resist the power of France. Mr. Lytielton regretted extremely the necessity he was under of withdrawing his vote from the Right Hon. Gen- tleman ( Mr. Ponsonby) who introduced the question, but in obedience to his feelings, and the dictates of his con- science, he was compelled to acknowledge, that, in his opinion, there was enough before the House to justify the conduct of Ministers in the attack upon Copenhagen. Mr. WHit bread, was surprised at the determination of his Hon. Friend to support the conduct of Ministers, who had refused all information, and that he should have drawn such a conclusion from the garbled extracts quoted by the Right Hon. Secretary of State from papers which he refused to produce, lie wished to recti the attention of the House to the real nature of the question. They were not called upon to decide whether Ministers had been right or wrong, but whether they were to have before tliera information to enable them to decide upon the propriety of that c in- duct, or be content with the evasive ' justification \ vhich they had heard. He deprecated tbe use of any means to mislead the House upon this subject . if the act was wrong, there could be no justification ; if right, let Ministers come to their trial, after laying b fore lite H m e all the informa- tion. they possessed. They bad said, that it was long before the Peace of Tilsit they had information respecting the intended confed racy. Before the battle of Friedland nothing was heard of this; that battle took place on the 14th of June; the armistice was signed on the 21st, anil ratified on the 24th ; the conference on the Njemeu took place on tlie 25th, an I the treaty was signed on the 7th of July. How was it possible, therefore, that Miiiistera could have informati > n to enable them to take the King's plea- sure on the 19th of July? But it was said, with a most splendid contempt for geography, time, anil space, that the information came through Portugal and through Ire- land, so as to be ready on the I91I1 af July. The Hon Gentleman adduced several other arguments, to shew that the Danish fleet was n t in a state of preparation That tf the act was necessary to be do it was only half done. That if no necessity was shewn, it was a gross violation of the law of nations, anil seems to imply, that because France had overthrown a giant* we must slay an infant. Lord G. L. Gower did not consider either the want of aid from the last Administration, or the attack 011 Copen- hagen, to have been the cause of the hostility of Russia. File real cause was the alteration produced by the effects of t be battle of Friedland. The'views of the Emperor of Russia might, perhaps, in some measure, be collected from hi • subsequent conduct. Now the first thing the Emperor did, when he returned from Tilsit, was to send for the Minister of the Mart e, The" first place he visited was Cronstadt, and tbe first order he gave was for improving the fortification 1 of that place.' His Lordship remarked, thit ma \ y persons iu this country seemed to be oi opinion that tlie exnedition to Copenhagen was generally execrated on the Continent-. H • could assure them, however, in so far as his ex 1 erience went,' that the outrary was the case, particularly in Huss a. The Noble Lord pointed cut the i- . : v-:• ve aris- ig from the publication of what passed be.. v. v : ni .. Majesty's Mini a. and th 1 Governments of other countries Foreign Ministers frequently expressed au tuv. v'.' i : : n. e- s to communicate freely with him, because they did 11 know but that what they stated might, per- hap•., in the eon: a . if a year, be made public. L'ird CtsHereagh contended, that Milli ters were not bound to lav before Parliament all the information on w. ii b hi , M j - ty's declarati . had b? en founded. Au Ho,,. \ i ntlemtin had dwelt much upon the circumstances of h. s Majesty's pleasure being taken on the expedition to Copenhagen on the 1.9th of J - - The fact, however, was. ; hat what pa. - si our that itf relate I onl* to sending a force fc. the ialt'j, in/ ader V j'certain th* disposition of Denmark ; the final ' nstructious to attack were sent out afterwards. Sir C. Price regarded the Copenhagen expedition not only as just and neceAary, but as wisely planned and glo- riously executed. Mr. Davis Giddy was sorry the information on which Ministers had actcd could not be laid before the House. However, as that wis the case, he thought himself bound to acquiesce in the concealment which the Government thou " t necessary- Mr. Ponsonby, 111 his reply, remarked, that all he had asked for was information, and that all the answer he got to that request, was respecting other expedition-, in order to prove some supposed misconduct iu the former Admini- stration. Extracts had be n read, to prove the hostility of Denmark, but to this he objected, on the wholesome prin- ciple, sanctioned by Courts of Justice, which was, that when yon propose to read a document in your defence, you must read the whole of it, for if you were permitted to read extracts only, it is proble that you would read nothing but what was favourable to yourself, and that yon would omit all that was against you. After some brief explanations between Mr. Canning, Mr. Ponsonby, and Mr. T. Grenville, the House divided on the first resolution—- Ayes 108— Noes 253— Majority in fa vour of Ministers 145. Adjourned at half past six o'clock iu the morning. THURSDAY, Feb. 4.] A ballot took place for a Com mittee to try the merits of the petition complaining of the Chippenham Election. Mr. Rose moved for anil obtained leave to bring in' a bill to amend tbe Act for the better regulation of the Office of Treasurer of the Navy. The Brazil Goods Bill was read a second time. The order for the production of the Account of the Amount of Unclaimed Dividends at the Bank, was dis- charged on the motion of Mr. Hushisson, and a new order made for an Account of the Amount of Unclaimed Divi- dends in the Bank, at the end of each quarter for the last three years ; and also of the Lottery Prizes unclaimed within the same period. Mr. Htishisson obtained leave to bring in a bill to regu late the issuing and paying of Exchequer Bills, Mr. Sheridani withdrew his notice of a motion on the state of Ireland, in order to consult Gentlemen from that part of the Empire, and fix a more convenient day for them than Monday, for which the notice now stood. Adjourned. LONDON, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5. Government yesterday received dispatches from Jamaica ; every tiling is quiet there; the Assembly has been prorogued. A Jamaica Mail arrived yesterday, bringing letters and papers to the 13th of December. It seems that ipprehetisions of some designs of the Negroes were prevalent at Kingston, where the negro- houses had been searched by three troops of horse for fire- arms, the avenues of the town being guarded at the time by other bodies of the military. In the month of September a dreadful gale of wind as felt in the Bay of Mexico. At Campeachy fifty houses were destroyed, and about fifty vessels lost. The tide rose to such a height, as to drive some of the vessels three miles into the interior. About twelve vessels were lost at Vera Cruz, and most of the crews perished. Letters were yesterday received from Gibraltar, dated the ( ith ult. they state that the French and Spaniards openly avowed their intention to commence the Siege of that place, and were making the necessary preparations. A letter, dated Villa Real, 1 Oth December, extracted from the Gibraltar Chronicle, gives a deplorable account of the state of Portugal since the entrance of the French, who, it says, came as lambs, but ave shewn themselves ravenous and bloody wolves. Though Jutiot has a large army of French and Spaniards there, he has required more troops, to com- plete the subjugation of the country. By the Malta Mail we learn from Sicily, that nn fears are yet entertained of an attack from tbe French. The Sicilians coi - itler themselves as doubly seeure, from the naval force, which serves to prevent any invasion, and from the respectable military force, which would frustrate any weak attack. Private letters estimate that military force at 12,000 men, but we suppose that this includes Sicilian troops. On Tuesday the Duke of York received out of the Registry of the Court of Admiralty, bv virtse of a grant from the King, 20,000/. arising from the pro- ceeds of ships and cargoes condemned to his Majesty. N. On Wednesday his Majesty held a private Levee at the Queen's Palace, at which the Rev. Dr. Busby was pre- sented to his Majesty on his being appointed to the Deanry of Rochester; Lord W111. Bentinek, on his return from Madras; and Brigadier- General Acklaud, 011 his return from South America. The Members of the House of Commons who hold offices under the Prince of Wales, all voted with the Ministers on the question of the Copenhagen Ex- pedition, on Wednesday night. The Sidmouth party voted with the Opposition. The five sail of ships, seen off the Cove of Cork, are now supposed to have been five Danish lndiamcn, which were going North about to escape our cruizcrs. The Leda frigate ran aground a few nights ago, and apprehensions are entertained that she will be lost. The crew however are all saved, and it is possible that the ship may. be got off. She was endeavourihg to enter Milford. Our intercourse with Russia being suspended, R. Crawshay, Esq. of Mertlivr, Glamorganshire, has suggested, as the earliest, most effectual, and most profitable'ms- thod of reclaiming marsh lands in general, the sowing of hemp, which in a year or two usually leaves the soil firm enough for potatoes, or even corn.

The Moniteurs contain an account of two conversations, stated to have passed between Mr. Canning and Mr. Rists tbe Dani sh Charge d* Affaires; the object of publishing which is to make it appear that Mr. Canning, by threaten- ing " the confiscation of the detained Danish vessels, the capture of the Danish Colonics, the destruction of the Danish trade, the possibility of being obliged to introduce Swedish troops into Cajienhagcu, and the necessity, which might arise, of rewarding and indemnifying his Swedish Majesty with the possession of Norway," expected to ter- rify the Danish Government into an acquiescence with all the plans of the Cabinet of London. - A correspondence ensued between Count Bernstorff, the Danish Minister, and Baron Taube, the Minister of his Swedish Majesty. The former demanded a denial, 011 the part of his Swedish Majesty, of " this calumnious insinuation." The latter at first said it was unnecessary to give the explanation re- quired ; the Court of Copenhagen might judge his Swedish Majesty by his actions; but on being further pressed for an explanation, Baron Taube wrote in answer, that " had iiis Swedish Majesty judged it necassai'y to occupy Zealand with his tioops, jointly with those of UU All}', he should have done it."

Richards, Leech, and Agar. It appeared that his Lordship devised to * he next anil nearest of his kindred, " he being a male, and of his blood and name," certain parts of bis estate in remainder. Now the question is, whether the son of the* sister of the testator, who has changed his name from Smith to Leigh, is entitled to such remainder ? It is ad- mitted lie is next male heir by blood, but it is contended that his name having been originally Smith, he does not answer the description in the Will; and that the licence of his Majesty to assume the name of Leigh will nrtt entitle him to take under the provisions of the Will. The case stands over. Landed property to an immense amount is dependent upon it. The Chancellor has called two of the Judges to his assistance upon this occasion. COURT ((/' KING's Br. scn, Feb. 1.— The King v. William Courtney, Ls'j.— This was a question upon au information in the nature of a quo warranto, to try the legality of tbe Defendant's election and swearing in as Alderman of the borough of Saltash. The objection taken was, that the Defendant had been elected in 1802. It was neeessaay that he should be sworn in before the Mayor, Justices, and Aldermen. A meeting was held iu 1805, before Mr. Buller, Mayor, when it was proposed to swear him in. Three of the Corporation objected, becaus?. they asserted that the Mayor had said that the meeting was to elect au Alderman. They were going away ; and one of them actually went. In his absence ( but in presence of the other two, who made 110 objection), the Defendant was sworn in, a majority of the Corporation consenting. His Lordship now gave judg- ment ; and, after a full examination of all the authorities, decided that the Defendant was duly elected and sworn. CORN EXCHANGE, Feb. 5. To- day there ate some fresh arrivals of Wheat, which makes a middling supply, and continues nearly at last prices; Barley and Malt likewise ; Beans of the two sorts are rather dearer; Rye and Rape Seed also; the Oat trade, for fine samples, fetch rather better price ; in Flour- no alteration. Yesterday morning, at half past six o'clock, a fire broke out in tbe house of Miss Pickman, a lace- shop, in Castle- street, Leicester- fields. It was with difficulty Miss Pick- man, her servant, her niece, a gentleman who lodged in the house, and her shop- woman, could be awaked ; when this was effected, they all, except the shop- woman, got uut of a window on to the leads of the shop- window, and reached the ground in safety. ' The flames spread to the house of Mr. Blewett, a cool- i's- sliop, and to that of Mr. Kemot, chemist, in Bear- street, both of which were burnt down, and in the, latter very considerable property was destroyed. Whilst tbe flames were burstiivg out. with great violence, Miss Fickman's shop- woman appeared at a window on the third floor ; her senses were bewildered by the dreadful scene ; and some ot the spectators calling out that she would be burnt if she did not jump down, she unfortunately obeyed them, and was dashed to pieces on the pavement. No other lives were lost, but many persons very narrowly escaped perishing. GOVTR- NOR I'ICTON. Yesterday the Court of King's Bench acceded to the motion for a new trial. Their Lord- ships observed, that they did not mean at present to ex- press any opinion 011 the points urged by the Counsel ; but they granted the new trial in order that a special verdict might be delivered, after which the question might be solemnly discussed and determined.

FRIDAY, Feb. 5.] The Marquis of Titchfield, Chair- main of the Chippenham Election Committee, reported that- James Dawkins, Esq. was duly elected. The Biil to amend the Act for regulating the Office of Treasurer of the Navy was brought in by Mr. Rose, and read a first time. On the question being put that the Speaker leave the Chair, in order for tiie House to go into a Committee of Ways and Means 011 the late Orders in Council relative to Neutrals, Lord H. Petty arraigned the justice and policy of the Orders, and wis supported therein by Dr. Lawrence, Mr. Windham, a .1 Sir A. Pigot. The. Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Master of the Hithi spuke in dcT- mee of the Orders in Council. The motion wa- 5 carried without a division, and the House went into a Committee. In the Committee, Mr. Perceval submitted a string of Resolutions, imposing various duties on articles the pro- duce of British colonies, 011 their exportation from Great Britain. These Resolutions lie intended to be printed ; and they might be taken into farther consideration on a subse- quent day, when the merit of these duties would be ap- preciated. This was agreed to, and the report wat ordered to be received on Monday ; to whieh day the House ad- journed at Two o'clock in the morning. LONDON, SATURDAY BVENIN&, FEB. 6. • No account has yet been received of the French squadron which lately escaped from Rochfort ; and the. reports respecting Sir John Duckworth and Sir R. Strgchan, who are in search of it, are confused and contradictory. The Madrid Gazette contains the official details of the actions at Buenos Avres ; they are not of great length. Liniers asserts, that the English army lost 4000 men in the first attack. It is also stated that Gen. Whitelocks made him a present of a sword as an acknowledgement for the humanity shewn by the Spanish Commander to the English prisoners and the wounded. In return, General Liniers presented some valuable minerals, and other curiosities, to Geno- rul Whitelockc. The EssSx, one of the last outward- bound East India fleet, was run foul of by a ship oft' Sciliy, and suffered considerable damage in her rigging, which obliged her to return to Torbay, where she must remain till another convoy. Mr. Steele, wiia was shot through the lungs in a duel, about six weeks ago, on Wandsworth Common, and of Miho. se recovery great doubts have been entertained, is de- elared out of danger. GENERAL WHITELOCKK'S TRIAL.— The Court has pro- ceeded with the examination of witnesses every day in the present week; but as the publication of the evidence is prohibited till the trial is ended, a repetition of the forms used each day could afford neither instruction nor amuse- ment to our readers. A young gentleman, the son of a very opulent mer- chant, near Crutched Friars, has been missing since last Thursday. Oti that evening lie was seen at the play, and, it appears, went afterwards to a noted house in £ t. James's- street, where he lost a considerable sum at Hazard. There does not appear any defalcation in his accounts, aid being an only son, his unhappy parents are almost frantic at his absenco. John Hicks, Clerk to an Attorney in Wmdey- street, Oxford- street, is committed to Newgate, after a long ex- amination before the Lord Mayor, charged with uttering a forged check for Or. lOrf. with intent to defraud house of Prescott, Groot", and Co.

The American ship Active, Capt. King, which arrived 011 Monday last, from St. Lbe's, has brought the following latest accounts' that had reached that place from Lisbon : they stated that all was tranquil. A slight disturbance took place on the 12th of December, in which ten of the inhabitants were killed; this arose in consequence of the French attempting to place their flag 011 the fort of Beleno, & e. which the Portuguese resisted— since then the French have not attempted it. The guards are doubled at all tlui public avenues and squares; and not more than ten persons ( Portuguese) are allowed to assemble together. During the nights several of the French have been mur- dered— all British property has been confiscated— provi- sions of all kinds are at such a price, that it is supposed the French troops must shortly return. Very little short of 40,000 men are at this moment in Portugal. The Por- tuguese ships of war are fitting out, by the French, with the greatest expedition possible. The Minotaur, of 74 guns, w ith Sir C. Cotton on board, is arrived off the Tagus, to . join the squadron under Sir Sidney Smith. Neither of these vessels brought any news of importance. When the Duke of Kent sailed, no attack had been made on the Danish Islands ; but orders were anxiously looked for from home for that purpose. PORTSMOUTH, Feb. (>• The Baraconta, which sailed 011 Tuesday, is charged with dispatches to the Brazils, to Bombay, and to Madras. The latter are supposed to be of importance, and to direct that par- ticular care shall be taken to guard against any surprize from the enemy. Monday— Arrived the Sharpshooter gun- vessel.

CANINE MADNESS.— A dog, in a state of hydrophobia, was shot on Sunday the 24th ult. at Christchurch: be was known to have bitten several dogs, which have all been killed. The Magistrates have ordered all dogs in the town ! to be confined, fearing he might have bit tap other dots, & c. which have not come to any person's knowledge.— And in the. previous week, Mr, Yelf, of Horn, in the parish of Christchurch, was under the disagreeable necessity of shooting three excellent cows, having tdl been bitten by a mad dog, about a month since, and were all of them in a state of hydrophobia. We hope and trust it will manifest itself in no other instance. SALISBURY. MOKDAY, FF. ERl'ARY > 1808.

On Tuesday last died, after a lingering illness, Mr. Wm. Mowland, a resectable farmer, of the borough of Downton, aged G6 yeats. On Friday se'nnight died In Walcot Poor- house, Bath, Jas. Waite, aged one hundred and seven. Hk was born in the house adjoining the White Horse Cellar, opposite Wal- cot church, aud was never out. of the parish a twelvemonth together. He lived as a servant to old " Squire Hooper" 16 years; but was the greater part of his life a chairman. He remembers when there were only eight houses in the parish of Walcot— and no poor- rate 1— There were two capital c'othiers in it. Waite had three wives; by the first he had 15 children, one of whom survives him, and who is like- wise a eh irman. He went into the poor- house April 7, 1797 ; and was then by bis own account, 97, though it was reported he was 103. He has lived there nearly 11 years, and always expressed him elf grateful for the humane attention he experienced. He perfectly recollects hearing about the rlwath of Queen Anne, aud the coronation of George I. His faculties were clear till within three or four days of his dissolution. Mrs. Wansborough of Romsey, daughter of the late Alderman VVansborough, of this city, has gene- rously sent a benefaction of 1001. to the Treasurer of the Salisbury Infirmary, for the use of that excellent Charity. A forgery has been committed 011 the notes of the De- vizes Bank, but we have authority to say that it was con- fined to the notes of one guinea only. The forgery was fortunately discovered on the day after any of the forged notes had been first passed, and by the active exartions of the Magistrates at Bath, several persons, supposed to be concerned, were immediately taken into custody, some of whom have been committed for trial.— From the early discovery of the forgery, very few forged notes are supposed to have been circulated, and those chiefly in Bath and the • neighbourhood. On Monday last a fire broke out at Tingleton Cottage, near Dorchester, which entirely consumed the dwelling- house, barn, and stable. The furniture, & c. were mostly saved. The damage is estimated at about 700/. two of which is only insured ; it is the property of Mr. Arney, of llsington. To the PRINTER O/" F AC SALISBURY ^ WINCHESTER JOURNAL.

Constellation of An- dromeda, forming a triangle witd the Stars p. and t, and that its situation was su'ch 011 the night of the Sfa'th of De- cember last, having 8° of right ascension aud 40° of North declination:— I beg to inform such of your readers as are fond of astronomical pursuits, that the supposed new Comet is a nebulous or elondy star, of which there are several; but the most remarkable one is that in the middle of Orion's Sword, in which Huggeus and Dr. Long observed twelve stars, seven of which ( four of them being very close toge- ther) seem to shine through a cloud, very lucid near the middle, but faint and ill- defined about the edges. Dr. Herschel, by means of bis powerful telescopes, has disco- vered that those lucid specks are composed entirely of masses of small stars. Your's, A CONSTANT READER.
