MONDAY, Feb. 27. Last night's Gazette contains the names of the Officers appointed to Gen. Beresford's Skeleton Army, which is to organize the Patriots of Portugal. On Saturday, between 2 and 3 o'clock, p. m. a telegraphic communication, from Ply- mouth, announced to the Admiralty the sail- ing of the Brest Fleet. It got out of Brest har- bour on the 21st, and stood to the westward. It consists of nine sail of the line, and some frigates. Whether there were troops on board or not was not stated. On the same day, ( the 21st) Lord Gambier sailed from Torbay. The noble Admiral was apprised of the sailing of the enemy's fleet, and proceeded immedi- ately in pursuit of them. lie has also under his command, nine sail of the line, and has, we believe, a three decker, at least, more than the enemy. Various rumours are in circulation as to the enemy's d; stination ; by some it is ima- gined that they are going for Cadiz, Minorca, or Majorca ; others imagine, and with more probability, that they are bound to the West Indies. We learn by Portsmouth and Plymouth letters, received this morning, that great exertions are making to send all the ships of war to sea that can be speedily got ready; it is therefore to be hoped that the course of the enemy will soon be ascertained, should be not have been obliged to return into port, on account of the wind having again come about unfavourable. Spanish papers to a late date have arrived since our last, including Cadiz and Seville Gazettes to the 10th instant. They confirm the accounts we had previously received of the brave garrison of Saragossa having vigo rously and successfully Tepulsed the several attacks of the enemy at that place. The gal- lant Palafox, in answer to a summons of the French General Moncey, declares he will , hear of no alternative between death and triumph ; between the disgrace and repulse of the enemy ; or such a resistance as will render the fall of Saragossa, if it must fall, the wonderand envy of future ages. The Seville Gazettes confirm the intelli- gence which we had previously received from Jamaica, of the probability of the speedy reduction cf the city of St. Doming ® . The defeat and death of Ferrand, the French Governor, are officially notified. It gives us much satisfaction to learn from the Spanish Papers that the gallant Lord Cochrane, respecting whose safety some apprehension had been entertained, conti- nued, so late as the 1st of January, to act with his usual promptitude and vigour against the enemy. We are informed that the intelligence re- ceived by the Spanish Legation is favourable; that the exertions are continued in the South w ith unremitting ardour, and with the most flattering prospect of ultimate success* It was believed at Madrid that the garrison under the command of General Beliard in- tended speedily to evacuate that city. The french were fortifying the contiguous heights. German, Swedish, and danish papers to the 15th inst. have also been received. It ap- pears, by some of these, that reports of an approaching rupture between Austria and France continue to be circulated in the North ; with the important addition that the army of the Duke Auerstadt was in motion from llan- ovcr, and the neighbouring districts ; and that the Prince of Ponte Corvo had rt teived dispatches from France which had occasioned particular sensations at Hamburgh. Among other hostile demonstrations, Austria conti- nues to form large Stores of grain from the neighbouring States, particularly from Bava- ria. Private advices state, that Bonaparte's pre- cipitate return from Spain, was occasioned by dispatches w hich he had received from Peters- burgh, informing him that the Emperor of Austria had made known to the Emperor Alexander his hostile determination against France, in consequence of Bonaparte's con- duct towards Spain, and solicited his co- ope- ration in the common cause, of all legitimate Monarchy. It is added, that further infor mation on this subject has been obtained by means of intercepted letters from the Queen of Prussia to her father, the Duke of Mecklen- burg!) Strelitz, in which she expresses a hope that her husband would shortly be restored to liis former rank in Europe. The use which Alexander made ot the overture was, to send it oil' immediately to Bonaparte in Spain, and • tin; communication induced his immediate departure from that country. Since Bonaparte's return to paris, the con- scription for the year ISiO is proceeding iu With increased rigour The report of a recent attempt to assassinate the Grand Duke Constantine, is said to rest on the evidence of a Swedish pilot, who escaped from Sweaborg the 7th or 8th January.— Should such be the dale of the report, it must necessarily be erroneous ; as we know he was well on the 7 th, and present at the entry of their Prussian Majesties into Petersburg!). Duke is universally detested in Russia, and, if the anecdotes we have heard of him be true, with abundant reason. Government yesterday received dispatches from Admiral Keates. The apprehensions which were entertained for the safety of our fleet in the Sound were unfounded. The dispatches from Admiral Keates are dated oft' Gottenburgh; they state, that the whole of our squadron was in safety, with the ex- ception of the Magnet sloop, which was lost; but the whole of the crew were saved. The Sound is now completely open. We understand that Government has agreed to make a Loan to the Prince Regent of Por- tugal of the sum of 000,000/. The mode of repayment is to be by consignments of Brazil commodities to Portuguese Agents here, and the produce, when converted into money, is to be delivered over to the Treasury. The sum of 80,000/. had been advanced at the time of the departure of the Braganza Family for the Western Continent. In the House of Commons on Friday, Mr. Ponsouby brought forward his promised moti- on on the subject of the Spanish Expedition, when an animated and interesting debate en- sued. After a very circumstantial detail of the operations of the army, and tKe conduct of Ministers in relation thereto, he concluded with moving for an Inquiry into the causes, conduct, and events of the Campaign in Spain.— Lord Castlereagh answered Mr. Pon- sonby at great length, denying the conclusi- ons drawn from the events.— The Motion was supported by Messrs. Tierney, Lord Milton, Messrs. Windham and Hutchinson, and op- posed by General Stewart, Mr. Colborne, Mr. Canning, and others — Mr. Ponsonby replied, and at half past three a division took place— Aves, for the motion, 127— Noes, 220.

DOUGAL, Clerk. Glaston, February 27, 181) 9. leicester Journal, and Midland Counties General Advertiser Wednesday's and Thursday's Post LONDON WEDNESDAY HOUSE OF COMMONS.— Thursday, After much private business had been transacted. The Speaker rose and stated, that since be had come to the House, he had received a letter, the contents iff which related to the Inquiry now pending before tae house respecting the conduct of his Royal High- ness the Duke of York, and be wished to know whether it was the pleasure « t the house that it should be read. ( A general exclamation of read! read! read!] The Sight Hon. Gentleman then announced that the let ter came from his royal Highness the Duke of York, was signed " Frederick," addressed to the Speaker, and dated Horse Guards, Feb. 23, 1809. The con- tents were as follows:-— ( COPY) " Sir, Horse Guards, Fob. 23, 1809. " I have waited with the greatest anxiety, until the Committee, appointed by the Mouse of Commons to in- quire into my conduct, as Commander in Chief of his Majesty's army, had closed its examinations; and I now hope it will out be deemed improper to address this letter, through you, to the House of Commons. " I observe with the deepest concern, that, in the . course of this Inquiry, my name has been coupled with transactions the most criminal and disgraceful; and i must ever regret and lament, that a connection should have existed, which has thus exposed my character to animadversion. " With respect to any alledged offences connected with the discharge of my official duties, I do, in the most solemn manner, upon my honour, as a Prince, distinctly assert my innocence ; not only by denying all corrupt participation in any of the infamous tran- i saction* which have appeared in evidence at the bar of the li oust of Commons., or any connivance at their existence, but also the slightest knowledge or suspicion that they existed at all. " My consciousness of innocence leads me confi- dently to hope, that the House of Commons will not, upon such evidence as they have heard, adopt any proceedings prejudicial to my honour and character ; but if, upon such testimony as has been adduced against me, the House of Commons can think my innocence questionable, I claim of their justice, that I shall not be condemned without trial, nor be de- prived of the benefit and protection which is afforded to every British subject by those Sanctions, under which alone evidence is received in the ordinary ad- ministration o' the law. " i am, Sir, your's, " FREDERICK. " The Speaker of the House of Commons." The Speaker then said, he felt it his duty to suggest e propriety of immediately ordering the Letter, in the first instance, to be copied on the Votes and Jour- , , that no delay might occur in placing it in the possession of every Member of the house. Tlie House concurred in the suggestion, and it was accordingly. } Lord Folkstone's Motion for a Call of the house on the 8th of March was carried yes- j terday by a Majority of 102 to 15. A question was asked by Mr. Ponsonby in : the House of Commons yesterday, Whether j the Treaty which had been said to be on the eve of being concluded with Spain, had been , a. s yet ratified?— And, 2d, Whether the re- port to which he had alluded on a former night, viz. that the force sent from Lisbon had been refused admission into Cadiz, was true or not ? j Mr. Canning replied to the first question, that the ratification of theTreaty had not been received ; and to the second, that he could Hut give any precise answer, though he did not know of any such circumstance having . taken place. j Accounts from Barbadoes have been receiv- ed to the 13th of January.— Nothing had to that date been undertaken against Martinique, and the armament remained at Barbadoes. An expectation was entertained at Barbadoes of fresh reinforcements being on their passage from France both for Martinique and Guada- J loupe. It was said even that the Brest fleet ; was looked for. Admiral Cochrane had . therefore resolved to cruize oft' Point Salines. • The expectation of such large reinforcements ' being on their passage for the French West India Islands ought, we should have thought, to have acceleratedour attack upon Martinique. ( The delaying of it may have been, and we dare say was, produced by very sufficient i causes : but we ale as yet unacquainted with them. j The suspension of our communication with ' the Continent is extremely distressing.— Six- teen Gottenburgh Mails are now due, and a , considerable time has elapsed since we have received any French Bulletins. Not that we ' are displeased with this latter circumstance, because a confident inference may be drawn from it, that the French have gained no im- portant successes in Spain, since the retreat' • of our army.

Wardle against the Commander in Chief, to the almost total exclusion of every other matter. The examinations collectively are too voluminous for the columns of a weekly pa- per, and if entered into woiild be a barrier to more important information, for a great length of time ; we shall therefore wait the event of the determination of Parliament, Whether the Duke of York goes to trial or not. It will be seen by our Parliamentary Report, that < a letter has beeii addressed by the Duke of York to the Speaker of the House of Commons, in which his Royal Highness speaks of his feeling's being much hurt by the Enquiry that has been insti- tuted against him, in the course of which his name has been coupled with acts at once infa- mous and disgraceful, of which, on his HONOUR AS A PRINCE, he declares himself innocent, and trusts he shall be allowed that mode of vindicat- ing himself that is not denied to the meanest subject of the realm. The language of his Royal High- nesses letter is certainly that of a wounded it. ind, and speaks a strong consciousness of the impro- priety of associating with such persons as those who have implicated him in the suspicions that have gone forth respecting his public character, to clear which of every stain is the object ol his present appeal. A trial therefore is we think inevitable, nor would the country be satisfied without it, and the more prompt its proceed- ings, consistent with legal forms, the more satis- sactory to the country it will be. It will be a proud display of the advantages derived from liv- ing under the British Constitution ! A Prince of the Blood Royal, the second subject in the kingdom, brought forward, as it were, in the presence of its whole assembled population, to lay his heart upon the altar of his country, and bow submissive to its awful decrees I It has been said, " What must the nations of Europe th nk of us, in our present situatioii." Let them look at us, and then, comparing their own, let them say what they think of us; and also let them say, if they dare, what they think of them- selves!— We however do exceedingly regret that the attention of Parliament appears to have been totally occupied on incidental objects. By inci- dental objects we mean not to say objects in themselves of no importance, but on objects un- connected with the present current of affairs on which the prosperity of the country depends.— Spain, Portugal, nay the whole Continent of Europe, and even America, are apparently for- gotten ; whilst Bonaparte; to whom seasons and distances appear no obstacle, and who performs a journey over the half of Europe, whilst the portmantua of another Monarch would be pack- ing by his Valet, has again left Paris for Ger- many : whether the warrior politician, whose in- satiable ambition has desolated Europe, has sud- denly quitted the enterprise in which he was en- gaged, ( the subjugation of Spain,) to undertake otheis in a quarter more interesting to him per- sonally, is no longer questionable. Accounts agree that Spain is not subdued. He has taken no LON DON, THURSDA Y March 2. Advices were received by Government this morning relative to the Brest Fleet— It has only changed the scene of its blockade, and having slipped out of Brest, w hile we were blown ofli ran for Rochefort, off which it made its appearance on the 24- th tilt.— There were four sail of the line there which the Brest Fleet has increased to twelves— Out of Roche- fort, however, they have not thought it prudent to venture, because Admiral Stopford is now blockading them in Basque Roads, with seven sail of the line and live frigates. It appears that the enemy went but of Brest for the purpose of surprising our blockading squadron off Rochefort, which, by their tele- graphs along the coast, they had been inform- ed were at anchor in the L'ay with their sails down.— They thought therefore they should be able by slipping out of Brest to take us by surprize— The Naiad, our look out frigate to the northward of the bay, saw them, and instantly made the signal for an enemy.— Ad- miral Stopford immediately made sail to another part of the Bay . The French Fleet., on nearing Rochefort, instantly ran to that part where they had been informed our Squad- ron was, but not finding it there, concluded we had made sail, and went themselves into Rochefort. Admiral Beresford has joined Adm. Stop- ford with three sail of the line.— The latter therefore has now seven sail of the line.— Ad- miral Duckworth had proceeded after the Brest fleet, detached b> Lord Gambier, but the Cuckoo was sent alter him to bring him back, and from the state of the wind it was supposed would catch him. Lord Gambier will imme- diately take the command off Rochofort, in person, with a superior force. War Office, Feb. 21— 4th regt. Dragoon Guards. Brevet Lieut. Col. Francis Sherlock, to be Lieut.

Drew and 76 non- commissioned officers and pri- vates, marched into this tswn on iheir route for Nottingham, the head- quarters of the Regiment ; the 45th, both in Spain aud Portugal had greatly distinguished itself and was terribly cut up ; the poor fellows had all the appearance of having " borne the tug of war", and excited so inu^ h com- miseration, that a subscription was set on foot to contribute to their momentary comfort, and 3 » .

We will insert the Resolutions in our next, a want of room preventing our doing so this week. A farmer, named Monk, of Heighington, near Stamford, was last week cozened out of 24/. b^ the stale practice of ring- dropping. The following distressing case of hydrophobia oc- curred lately at Bidford; in Warwickshire.— David Hale, a young man about 20 years cf age, son ot Mr. Hale, shoemaker, of Bidford, while leaning over the gate of his fathers garden, on the evening of the 1st of September last, observed a cat coming down the garden walk towards him. As the animal seemed resolved to pass Under the gate, the young man placed his foot in the way to prevent her; which she instantly seized and 011 putting down his hand to extricate himself, she bit him very se- verely by the thumb. The father of the young man hearing a noise', ran out of the house with a stick; h'e pointed it towards the cat several time's; and she as often seiz'd it in ihe most ferocious manner. Mr. Hale then declared the animal was mad, and immediately destroyed Her. The young man went, without delay, to Witminster, and was; according to the opinions of his ad- visers there, properly dipped in the salt water; in the hope of averting the dreadful consequences ihat might otherwise arise from the bite of the animal. He returned home again, and for more than a month enjoyed his usual health. On Tuesday the 11th of October, tlie young man was taken ill with the head ache. O11 Wcdnes day his head- ache continued and got worse and rri the evening he had symptoms of a sore throat. On Thursday the soreness of his throat increased, he could not swallow, his head was very bad, and if any liquid was offered him, he was much agitated and convulsed. On Friday- he could not suffter any liquid to come near him, but he eat a small bit of toasted bread. He was sensible of his situation, ar. d desired every one not to endanger themselves by attend* ing him. He foamed at the month- very much, and at times was greatly convulsed. On SatUr- day his malady increased, arid on Sunday he was confined in bed; raving triad. Two people were constantly employed ih wiping the foam from him; which issued from his mouth and nose in large quantities. On Monday morning the l7th, this unfortunate young than was released from ihe most dreadful of all human afflictions ; he expired about seven o'clock in the greatest agonies. A transaction of a very mysterious and horrid nature . has come to light Within the list few days, — A few Weeks ago; a box was left at the Black Moors Head coach office, Nottingham, directed to some person in London, wMi a request that it might Be forwarded by some of the coaches. It was sent off accordingly, but on its arrival iri Lon- don, no such person asthe direction contained could he found'; and the box was, of course, detained at the office there, until it should be claimed, A foetid ar. d unuSual smell having been experienced for several days in the office, it was at length traced to the box in question ; when, on opening it, it was found to contain the dead body of a male in- fant, apparently about two months old, and ip a putrified state, It coUld not be ascertained whe- ther the child had been riiuiderto, or had died a natural death ; but the circumstance certainly af- fords strong grounds fot suspicion, that it had been made away witH. .

JOSEPH SMITH, Corn inspector which has been paid to the Treasurer of the Female Asylum, for the benefit of that Institution. We have pleasure in announcing the following additional Donations to the Female Asylum in this town : I cicesfer Journal, and Midland Couln'ties General Advert wet To the Editor of the Leicester Journal- Mr. EDITOR, As you have admitted into your p^ pcr some ob- servations on ibe late proceedings of a Special Board at our Infirmary, I cannot doubt from your ac- knowledged candour and impartiality tut you will allow another friend to Oie Institution to correct the erroneous statement of your Correspondent. Jt should serm from his account, that the very numerous and respectable meeting of ( governors upon that occasion came to an unjust decision re- speciing the Overseers of parishes, and the Heads or Representatives of Societies, subscribing to this Chaiity. Now, Mr. Editor, the case was simply this; in ascertaining the validity of Votes, : hey could find no Statute which gave the persons in question the right of appearing at the Board or of acting in the capacity of Governors, nor was there any precedent of their ever doing so. The Statutes have assigned them the privilege of recommending as many Patients as any individuals in proportion to their Subscriptions. No other privilege was ever given them, and it was always supposed that this was satisfactory. There are many other sub- scribers and Benefactors in the sarr. e situation: and even the largest sums given will not entitle anv man to vote by proxy or deputation, as parishes and societies must do, if they vote at all. These of- ficers and representatives could not appear at the Board, as the Statutes now stand. Whether any alteration in the ir. ode of govern- ing this Institution be necessary or expedient, is altogether another question ; the discussion of it for the present is premature. It should be reserved for the serious consideration of the Governors at their Annual meeting. The last Special Board, though very numerously attended, had certainly no power to make any new law in favour ofthe persons who were desired to withdraw : and therefore no blame whatever can attach to that Board. Had their proceedings been different, they would have been illegal. It is said, that the exclusion of these proxies or representatives from voting is unjust. But with what propriety of speech is this maintained? There lias been no violation of law. They are not depriv- ed erf any one privilege, which they ever did pos- sess. ' I he subscriptions of those, by whom they are deputed, were perfectly voluntary ; and they were paid with no other expectation than the liberty of recommending patients which is still granted to as great an extent as e\ er. Your Correspondent, Mr. Editor, styles himself A FRIEND TO THK INSTITUTION. But dots he act consistently with that appellation, when he suggests 10 certain societies to withdraw their sub- scriptions, unless further power be given them ? Or will it be for the advantage of Parishes to refuse anv further support to this Charity, when it is obvious that for every TWO Guineas, which they contribute, they are spired an expanse of FIVE? It is not uncharitable to suppose, that they subscribe tor their own interest, rather than for the exercise of power. I am sorry, that your Correspondent has made any reference to an inviduous distinction for men's religious opinions. As if Dissenters had not the same privileges in the lnfiimary, which churchmen possess. Such distinction ought not to be known in public Charities; it is never mentioned in our Statutes: and it should be gratefully acknowledged that this noble Institution is liberally support ed by persons of all religious persuasions. It is open to all such; and the Ministers of dissenting congregations may possess as much power and pri- vilege in it, as the Vicar or Hector of any parish. Where then is there any thing like the shadow of persecution ? I have only further to suggest to your Corres- pondent, that all his complain's may be removed by an easy expedient, without 3ny alterat'on of the existing Statutes Let- vlie Subscriptions from Con- gregations be paid in the name of their respective Ministers, and from other Sociities in the name of any one deputed by them, and these persons will possess the lull power of Governors. I am, Mr. Editor, AN IMPARTIAL OBSERVER. To the Editor of ( he Leicester Journal. SIR, The observations made in the two last Journals Concern ng the smuggled Election at the infirmary are veiy true ; the election savoured of party, and the meihod cramps the good wishes of the subscri- bers ; I am shocked to find that Dissenters are ob- jected to, as to the freedom, they ought to enjoy, both in voting, and being voted for; this is contrary to the Law and Practice of Jesus Christ ; he cen- sured ihe proud Pontitf as also the self- impor- tant Leviie, in passing by the sufferings of the poor man who was wounded having fallen amongst thieves. He approves and even places before our eyes, for ou. example, the charitable hand of the person who relieved his fellow creature ; and he was a Samaritan, that is a Dissenter from the then established chuich. ' I he Physicians and Surgeons who liberally at- tend the charity gratis, have but one good will to assist the charity, and ye- goon Sundays to diffe- rent places of worship. Would it not be pleasing to see the clergy of the established church offciing their services as Chaplains^ ru/ iJ also.

About half- past ten on Friday night, a Gentle trtin Of the name of Kent passing aiong Brydges- ttrcet, discovered thata fire had broken out in that part ol'ihe Theatre fronting Bridges- street— an im- mediate alarm was given, but the tire had by that time acquired such force, that every attempt to extinguish it proved ineffectual, and it continued its ravages until every thing combustible in ihe'l he- a're was consumed, and the walls had fer the greater part fallen in. The fire was said to have originated from the carelessness of some plumbers who had been em- ployed during the day repairing the water- closets; but from the situation in which the flames were first discovered, it is believed the fire began in what was called the Chinese Lobby, underneah lhe grand- lobby which faces Bridges- street. ' I his Chinese lobby was the second entered going in. o the theatre from Brydge- streel; and froin itascend- ccl two stair cases to the main passages and lobbies level with the back of the front boxes. Ac cording to th? original plan of the Theatre, ihij Chinese lobby was intended to be suirouodcd with ihofi, for the sale of various articles, such as gloves, fruit, & c. during the performance. The shops had ac tuallv been made since the opening of the Theatre, but they remained inclosed with shutters: it was j deiermined to open ihem this season, during the whole of which the entrance to the Theatre from Brydges- street has been shut up, that this lobby and the shops in it might be finished. They were nearly ready ; the varnishers were ai work ra'her late en - Friday night, and from their negligence, the fire is supposed to have arisen. IIow it hap- pened is not exactly ascertained ; but it is kno< vn that the varnish caught fire, and that almost instant- ly the whole Theatre was in a blaze. No perfor- mance having taken place on Friday, it being Oratorio night, there was but a watchman or two and a porter in the house ; and as the fire began at the most remote part from their usual stations, it had acquired an unconquerable height before they were aw are of it. The supply of water on the top ofthe Theatre was quite useless, the flames, being up there as soon as any person could have reached the roof. When the leaden cistern on the top fell in, it produced a violent concussion, and the burning matter forced up into the air resembled a shower of rockets. 1 he iron curtain, which in case of fire it was in'ended to drop in the r- entre of the house, thus to save one- half of it at least, had been found so rotten, the machinery so impracticable, that it bad been removed. In less than a quarter of an hour the fire spread in one ut. broken flame over the whole of the im- mense pile extending from Bridge- street to iJrury- lane; so that the pillar of fire was not less than 450 feet in breadth. The Metropolis was illuminated to the remotest parts of the town, and the intelli- gence of the scite of the calamity seemed to spread wiih equal rapidity, as people from all parts came flocking towatds the melancholy scene of action, as to a central point. The crowd near the fatal spot was immense, and all the streets leading to it were thronged with pe » ple ; yet perhaps there is no instance on record in which there appeared less turbulence and confusion. As far as it was possible to detach the mind of the spectators from the awful and tremendous calamity ir. view, the appearance of the metropolis was in the highest degree striking and magnificent. The tops of the houses in all directions were covered with people, ana those who stood upon any house, from which a view of Westminster and Blackfriars Bridges could be seen, could perceive every passenger go over them, and distinctly mark the baliustrades. The Patent- shot Manufactory, and, indeed, every large edifice on the south of the I hames, as well as those on the other side, Were illuminated with great splendour, and contributed to render the coup d'icil the grand- est spectacle of the kind that perhaps has ever been witnessed since that memorable calamity, empbati rally denominated the lire of London. ' I he re- flection of the fire on the Thames was another striking feature in the general magnificence of the scene.— But all sense of the grandeur of the spec- tacle must vanish the tnind, in contemplating the wretched condition to which so many people must be reduced, by a calamity so sudden and extensive. Such was the extraordinary rapidity of the flames, that in about thirty minutts after its commence- ment, ihe Apollo on the top fell into the Pitt, and soon after the whole of the roof also fell. Mr. Kent, accompanied by two others, proceeded by way of the stage lo the spot on fire, and at that time it was confined to the saloon under the coffee room which fronts Brydges- street, in a very few minutes the whole of that part of the Theatre, to- gether with the front row of boxes, were on fire, and before twelve o'clock the whole of the interior of the Theatre was one blaze.— At the suggestion of a Gentleman present, Mis. Jordan's dressing room was broke Open, and her bureau, the looking glasses, & c. were conveyed away. The Treasury was next looked to, some Gentlemen present hav- ing directed the attention of about a dozen persons who wete in the house thither, and all the books, papers, & c. were conveyed to the houses of Mr. Grubb, Mr. Bowlev, in Russel- street, and Mr. Kent, in Tavistock- street. These books and papers, with the articles ftom Mrs. Jordan's rooms, were the only things saved. T he persons interested in the ' I heaire speedily arrived, but these, together with the performers, were in time only to witness the destruction of the property. The Theatre was at that time left to its fate, and the interior was most completely destroyed by one o'clock. S'ome of the houses partially caught fire in Mus- sel- street, but the engines, with a plentiful supply of water, continued to play on the houses contigu- ous to the i heaire. The advantage of having a great public structure of this kind in an insulated situation was apparent upon this awful and melan- choly occasion. Although ihe engines could not arrest the progress of the flames in the Theatre, they were able IO play upon the surrounding build- ings, and thus saved the neighbourhood from de- struction. About half- past twelve, parts of the outward walls, both in Russel- street and Vinegar yard, fell down and completely blocked up the passage; — At three o'clock the flames had nearly subsided, and that once magnificent structure presented to our view nothing but an immense heap of ruins. At five o'clock the flames were compleiely subdued. At eleven o'clock yesterday; great quantities of smoke were issuing from ihe ruins, here and there small quantities of fire were burning, and some of the engines were occasionally playing. The heat was so great in Brydges- street, and indeed in all parts nearly surrounding the Theatre, that it effectually kept off the crowd. By the in- cessant elforts of ihe respective firemen, though the whole neighbourhood seemed to be threatened with ruin, the houses in the vicinity were preserved, and only one or two, particularly that cf Mrs. Mac Bea: h, a vender of oysters, fruit, See. suffered in the roof. Mr. Sheridan was in the House of Commons when he received the first intelligence of the fatal event, and though he was evidently much affected by the shock, yet when it was observed that it would be proper to adjourn a debate in which he was expected to take apart, he summoned forti- tude enough to say, that however lamentable the event might be as to himself, he thought it ought not to interrupt the business of the country.— Next to the injury which this Gentlemen will suffer, is that which befals Mrs. Richardson and her four amiable daughters whose sole dependence was on a quarter part of the Theatre, of which they wcr » proprietors. One man was killed by the falling ofthe wall in Russel- street, and another was dangerously hurt; but these were the only accidents of the kind which had occurred last night. The amount of the insurance is staled at about 70,000/. The Building of the Theatre, and its internal furniture, cost upwards of 180,00( V. and the Libel COURT OF kiNCs BENCH, Thursday, Feb. 23. THE KING V. BEAUMONT. This was an information tiled against the defen- dant, by his Majesty's Attorney General, for pub- lishing in a Weekly Newspaper, called the British Guardian, a gross and scandalous Libel upon his Majesty's Government, tending to vilify the same, and to bring it into hatred and contempt. ' 1 he libel was contained in a Letter to the King, which inferred that his Majesty governed the Country by unconstitutional means; that he had a private Ca- binet, and that his Councils were directed by a secret Junto, no way responsible for the advice i hey gave. The publication being proved read, Mr. Cliff. ird, for the defendant, contended, that Lord Chatham, Mr. Burke, and others, hr. d each of them maintained ihe same opinions as the British Guardian, and said, that if the freedom of dis- cussion was to be thus trammelled, the Liberty of the Press would soon become a non entity. Lord Ellenb irough said, it was nothing to the Jury whether Lord Chatham, in his speech in the House of Lords, or Mr. Burke, in his writings, had advanced doctrines similar to those promulgat- ed in the Letter under discussion. The question was, whether the publication, looking to its entire- contents, was or was not li ellous, and written With an intention to vilify and degrade his Majes- ty's Government ? His Lordship then commented upon ihe several passages deemed to be libel- lous, and left the Jury to draw their own con- clusions. The Jury immediately found the defendant Guilty. THE KIXG HORSEMAN. Same day.— This was also an information for a Libel, tending to degrade and vilify his Royal Highness the Duke of Sussex, and to bring him into hatred and contempt ; inferring that his Royal Highness had been guilty of a criminal offence, for which he was liable to be brought to public jusiice, and punished The l. bel was contained in the fol- lowing hand- bill, stuck up in various parts of the town :— " His Roval Highness the Duke of Sussex I ! " Twenty Guineas Reward ! I " Whereas, in the night of the 23d instant, a hand- bill, signed, ' a Yorksairemaii' was stuck up in seve- ral ( daces, without a Printer's name affixed to it :— Now, as 1 suspect ttie Duke of Sussex to be the Author or privy to it, whoever will give information, so that he may be acquitted of that suspicion, or the real offender brought to justice, shall receive from me the above reward, at No. S, Hanway- str « et. " THOMAS HAUUfc." W, Horseman informs the Public, that not- wisbstandingsuch handbill is meant to dc'tet him from selling' An Englishman's Letter to his Majesty, and Traits of all the Royal Dukes,' ill which the morals of the Duke of Sussex are explained, yet new editions are now selling of that Work. Also, Mr, Hague's Letter to the Duke of York, upon the appointments of Sir Hugh Dalryinplc." The above being read, and Mr. Horseman proved to be the publisher, residing at No. 8, Hanway- street, Mr. Adolphus made a very ingenious defence ; and said, thrt to discuss the morals ot an indivi- dual, however elevated nis condition, was not criminal, provided it was done with temperance and truth. The Attorney- General replied. Lord Ellenborough told the Jury to strikeout the notne of the Duke of Sussex from the hand- bill, and substitute their own, and then ask if they would not feel themselves libelled, to be advertised, with twenty guineas reward, in the same way as if they had been suspected of breaking open a house ?— His Lordship then commented on the expressions in the handbill, and called upon the Jury to give the Duke ihe same measure of justice they would expect for themselves tinker similar circum- stan- cs. The Jury without hesitation found the defendant Guilty. Taylor's Remedy for Deafness.— Miss Charlotie Fuller, of Souihovcr, in the Vicinity of Lewes, who had been several years afflicted with extreme deafness, on F riday last ca ne to the Office of W. Lee, and informed him, that on seeing the Remedy advertised in this Paper, she sent for a bottle, and applied its contents, agreeably lo the primed di- rections until about one third part was consumed, when she had the happiness to find herself perfect- ly restored ro hearing, which she communicated from motives of philanthropy, and under an idea, that others in like manner afflcted, might leceive similar benefit from its publicity The manner in which the organs of sound, on being brought into action, played upon the imagination of Miss Ful- ler, is rather singular, and cat, not be better, or more emphatically expressed, than in her OWN WORDS, which were —" That she fancied ihe " medium of her existence changed, and that she " had been imperceptibly introduced to the society " of A New World..'
