Thursday morning;, his Majesty, Princesses So phia and Augusta, accompanied by Lady G. Mur- ray, Generals Cartwright and Fitzroy, and Colonels Taylor and Desbrow, rode in the Great Park, at Windsor, and returned at twelve o'clock. Wednesday, her Majesty, the Duke of Cam- bridge, Princesses Augusta, Sophia, Elizabeth, and Mary, accompanied by Ladies Ilchster, Thynne, and Albina Cumberland ( all the ladies in waiting,) Count Munster, Generals Cartwright and Fitzroy, and Colonels Taylor and Desbrow, went in her Majesty's Royal carriages to Maidenhead- bridge, where they alighted, and went on board six boats, prepared and ornamented under the management of Mr. Carter, boat- merchant, of Eton- bridge, and rowed up to Clifden, ( he seat of Lady Orkney, where they disembarked, and were received by Lady Orkney, and a great number of Nobility and Gentry of the neighbouring towns and villages, who were invited; and who congratulated them on their Royal visit. The shores, on both sides the Thames, were crowded by thousands of the most genteel and respectable company, who saluted the Royal party as they passed, whilst the band of the King's Own Royal Stafford, played " God save the King," and different martial airs. The Duke of Cambridge was cockswain to the Princesses' boat, and Col. Desbrow, to the Queen's; who steered them to and from Clifden. The barges were stopped during the time the Royal Party were on the river, to prevent any accident, The Royal Party walked in the pleasure- grounds a con- siderable time; and at four o'clock, sat down to a very elegant dinner, with upwards of a hundred of the first Nobility. At six o'clock, her Majesty and the Princesses embarked on board their boats, and landed at Maidenhead bridge, where the Royal carriages waited to receive them, and arrived at the Palace at eight o'clock. Much credit is due to Mr. Carter, the boat- master, for his steady care and attention on the occasion. LONDON. AUG 4. By the Pacific, returned from America, we have received letters and papers, by the way of Liver- pool. seven days later than those which had pre- viously arrived. One from New York, dated July 2, says, that notwithstanding the long cessation of imports, on account of the embargo and non- in- tercourse Laws, sales of dry goods are very heavy This effect seems to be the necessary consequence of the immense supplies of merchandize of this description, which were sent from England on account of the insufficiency of demand in the mar- kets of Europe. Bills were extremely scarce, and were not to be obtained under 11 per cent. It was supposed that no fewer than 1,120 vessels had sailed from New York only, since the date of the negociation with Mr. Erskine. The Dutch Herring Fishery which used to em- ploy several thousand fishermen, this year engages only three smacks.— The seizure of sixteen cod- nessels by the English, is made a pretext by the Government for preventing a trade which it has been feared might afford facility to commercial or political intercourse with this country. The wife of a private in the 7th Light Dra- goons, who was taken prisoner by the French the day before the battle of Benevente, between the English and French cavalry, very unexpectedly joined the regiment at Guildford on Thursday morning, after a long and perilous journey. The account she gives is, that she remained with the French army in Spain till April last, when they gave her a pass to go into France. She set out by the way of Bayonne, and travelled through France on foot to Calais, from which place she was taken in the barge by the canal to Antwerp, and thence to Flushing, which she left on Saturday morning the 22d inst. and landed at Aldborough the next day. She is a very intelligent woman, and says that the whole coast of France she has passed thro' is in great alarm at our expedition, and that there are no troops lett. The French behaved very well to her while their prisoner, and one of the Lieute- nant- Colonels employed her as his cook. Accord- ing to her report, in the retreat of the British army under Sir John Moore, the main body of the French only followed it as far as Astorga, when the Cavalry were immediately ordered hack to France, leaving a few squadrons to accompany the infantry, which, from the best account, did not exceed 30.000 men. It is to be lamented that our Commander had not been apprised of the circum- stance, and permitted our troops to engage at Villa Franca, as was wished and expected. Orders have been issued by the Treasury to the Mint, to receive all the old halfpence at present in circulation, and to issue for the future, none but those made by Mr. Bolton of Soho; such forgeries as are so well done that a common observer could not distinguish them from good halfpence, are to be taken. Some very beautiful animals of the goat kind, have been sent home from India in the late fleet, as a present from Sir E. Baillie, to his Royal High- ness the Prince of Wales. They are larger than the ordinary size, with smooth hair, beautifully speckled, as we sometimes see deer, but with very brilliant colours. One of them in particular, a male, is beautifully variegated with red and white. His horns, which are smooth, arc also elegantly mot- tled. These animals were brought to Calcutta, at the express desire of his Royal Highness to Sir E. Baillie, from Delhi, where they have been intro- duced from Persia. His Royal Highness intended them for his Royal Mother's lodge at Frogmore, and has already presented them to her Majesty, who is highly gratified with the gift. Two valuable horses having died, and several others having become sick, in consequence of drink- ing out of a certain trough at Newmarket, the water has been analysed, and there are strong grounds to supect, that poison was mixed with it. — A reward of l00 guineas has been offered for the discovery of the person guilty of this heinous offence.

Thirteen hundred Merino sheep were, on Mon- day and Tuesday, landed at Deptford from eight transports, for the use of his Majesty. There were 50 also for Lord Holland, and the same number for Lord Mulgrave. One hundred and fifty- seven common Spanish sheep were landed for the King; 5.000 more Merino are on their passage for his Majesty. Sir William Curtis's watch, with the worthy Al- derman on hoard, which accompanies the expedi- dition, is under the orders of the Admiralty, that being the only condition on which it could be permitted to sail with the armament. The Marquis of Huntley, and several other Gentle- men are also on board her, at the invitation of the worthy Alderman. At Derby assizes Mr. John Satterfield, a linen- draper, of Manchester, brought an action against Mr. JamesSutton, who keeps the Navigation Inn, at Shardlow, near Derby, to recover a compensation in damages for the expences incurred in conse- quence of his leg having been fractured in Novem- ber last, which accident was occasioned by his horses taking fright at the tarpawling covering of a shed placed upon the defendant's premises very- near the turnpike- road : the tarpawling hung down on the sides of the shed, and flapping about and making a rustling noise when there was any wind, it became a great terror to horses. The Judge de. clared that the defendant had no right to place, although on his own ground, any erection produc- tive of such effects; that he had been very culpa- ble in permitting such a nuisance to remain so long, aware as he must have been of its dangerous tendency; and that he was responsible for the consequences.— Verdict for plaintiff, damages - tool At the Suffolk Assizes, which commenced a Bury, on Thursday, among the civil actions tried was that of Lees v. Guest." It was an action, be fore a Special Jury, brought by the Plaintiff, a baker at Clare, against the Defendant, an Adjutant in the Suffolk Local Militia, to recover a compen- sation in damages for Criminal Conversation with the Plaintiff's wife; but it being clearly proved, to the satisfaction of the Court and Jury, that Plain- tiff connived at and encouraged the familiarities with his wife, he was nonsuited. Actions of this kind, to the honour of the married females in the county of Suffolk, being very rare, it excited con siderable interest. - A young officer, quite a boy, was ordered on Thursday se'nnight to embark for India, and re- ceived 951. by a bill, and 40l. in Bank notes, for his passage and pay. On Friday evening, while on the qnarter- gallery of the Indiaman, at St. Helen's, he dropped his pocket book over board, containing these sums. This happened about eleven o'clock at night— he was in a deplorable situation— without friends nearer to him than Aberdeen. As the mail- boat, from Portsmouth, was crossing to Ryde, on Sunday following, a passenger saw something at a distance in the water, and persuaded the Captain to go towards it— it proved to be the pocket- book, with all the notes and bill. The passengers, on landing, mentioned this circumstance, and, in less than an hour,' the officer was put in possession of it. The pocket- book was in the ocean from eleven o'clock at night, on Friday, until the same hour on Sunday evening, and must have gone up and down with the several tides within that time— pos- sibly from Cowes to Spithead, and back again, with every tide. Sunday se'nnight a duel was fought at the back of St. Nicholas's Island, near Plymouth, between two midshipmen belonging to the Princess Char- lotte frigate, lying in the Sound. They exchanged three shots each, at five paces distance, and wers reloading for a fourth time, when the commandant of the garrison interfered, took away their pistols, and sent them on board their ship. One of them appeared much inebriated, and was in the act of chewing a musket- ball, to make it fit the pistol, when the Governor of the garrison very properly interposed his authority. We extract the following singular epitaph from a recent lively and interesting Journal of a Voyage down the W\ e.—" There resided at Chepstow a man of the name of Downton, who married a daughter of the Rev. Mr. Chest. His father- in law was, when alive, the constant subject of his ridi- cule; and upon his decease, he wrote the following lines which appear on his tomb in the church- yard :— " Here lies at rest, I do protest, One Chest within another: The Chest of Wood was very good,— Who says so of the other?" A letter from Stewarton, Scotland, dated July 18, says—" On Tuesday, the 11th instant, at this place and some miles round, a noise, loud as thun- der, but of much longer continuance, and very dif- ferent in send, was heard in the air. It is some- what strange that, at the time, the sky was remark- ably calm and serene, and not so much as a single cloud threatening the approach either of thunder, or fire, could be observed. The noise began with three loud distinct reports, accompanied with a kind of whizzing resembling very much the firing of cannon. After that, it was, to appearance, oc- casioned by the rumbling of a vast heap of stones, which continued for some considerable time, and then turned into something very like the rattling of carriages. This rattling continued so long, that some people could hardly be persuaded that it was in the air, but actually thought that it was occa- sioned by a number of carriages. To those, how- ever, who were out of their houses at the time and took particular notice, the noise appeared as be- ing almost perpendicular above their heads. What makes this still more surprising is, that, about the same time, some persons are said to have seen red hot balls of fire to appearance rise from the earth near Rosemount, on the road to Ayr, and, after ascending entire a great height, fall to pieces into the sea, upon which a most tremendous noise im- mediately succeeded Some think the noise heard here was occasioned by these balls of fire falling into the sea. Some say, that they felt the ground tremble under their feet at the time." Wednesday Capt. D. of the Royal Marines, ( a person of good property, besides his commission) went to the shop of Mr. Bunter, mercer and draper, Taunton, to look at some muslins; complained to the shopman his neck handkerchief was not proper, and wished him to get a looking- glass; in the in- terim he made free with a piece, and put it in his pocket It happened to be perceived by the shop- man that a piece was wanting; Mr. Bunter was acquainted with it, who immediately procured a search- warrant, went to the Captain's lodgings, and broke open a trunk, in which were the piece of muslin lost, a piece of cambric, and many other suspicious articles, with a great number of gold seals. He was taken to a Magistrate in a chaise, who committed him to Ilchester gaol.— Bath Chron. A Gentleman of the name of Bowton was on Thursday held to bail at Union Hall, to take his . trial for violently striking Mr. Dodd, jun. the En- • gineer on the head, so as to cause a compression on the brain, in a dispute upon the subject of the projected Vauxhall Bridge. It was at first objected to admit him to bail, the life of Mr. Dodd being considered in danger : but the evidence of some eminent professional Gentlemen not establishing this fact, bail was ordered to be taken. Tuesday se'nnight, a very severe tempest was felt in Norfolk, when Mr. Fulcher, of Bradenham, had a fat bullock killed; Mr. Butcher, of Ship- ham, a cow killed; and Mr. Mellish had a very - fine oak tree rent to pieces. We are concerned to state, that Mr. George - Edmeads, an eminent stationer, of Leadenhall- street, was drowned, on Monday, in the Medway, at Maidstone, it which place he was on a visit to his numerous and respectable relatives and friends. He had been paying cricket, and sent, with some of his companies, to bathe in the river, when be- ing heated, it is supposed, on plunging into the water, he becane suddenly chilled, and sunk. His body was taken out almost immediately, and bled freely, but all means to restore animation proved ineffectual. He was a very amiable young man, and had not exceeded his < 23d year. An unfortunate Irishman named O'Flagherty, who was desperately wounded in an affray with some of his countrymen on the night of last Sunday se'n- night, in Chick- lane, died of his wounds in St. Bartholomew's Hospital, on Tuesday night. A Coroner's Inquest was held on the body, on Wed- nesday evening, at St. Bartholomew's Hospital, which, after sitting in deliberation until one on Thursday morning, brought in a verdict of Wil- ful Murder, against three persons, two of whom are in custody. Monday morning, Mary Moore, an elderly wo- man, decently attired, endeavoured to intrude her- self into Windsor Palace. On being questioned respecting her business, it appeared she was de ranged in her mind. She said she came to advise with the King, on the necessity of making peace; that she had many things to communicate, and, among the rest, that she had brought her pepper- box with her, ( which she produced,) and, it being quite empty, she hoped his Majesty would fill it. Several of the attendants present, recollected hav- ing seen her there before; but, as she became very noisy and troublesome, and could not be prevailed upon to depart quietly, she was at length given in charge of Savers, the police- officer, who carried her before - the Sitting Magistrate, and he being convinced of her insanity, ordered proper care to be taken of » » , could be further investigated Sunday night, two hackney- coachmen, passing along the lower side of Leicester- square, ran a race with their coaches, and after overturning a chaise at the end of Oxendon- street, one of the coaches was run with such fury against a post, that a pannel was broken, and the coach was overturned. A Mrs. Smith and a youth, who were passengers, were conveyed senseless to the hospital-, and the coachman had his arm broke The other roach was stopped in the Haymarket, and the coachman, who was inebriated was secured. The neighbourhood of Covent- Garden was thrown into considerable alarm at twelve o'clock on Sunday night, by a fire which broke out at the house of Mr. Prague, a broker, in Lower Bedford- street. The flames burst out of the front kitchen, and issued through the area grating. The parish engine speedily came to the spot, and being sup- plied with water, by the industry of the neighbours, it extinguished the fire, which otherwise might have produced alarming consequences. The kit- chens were completely destroyed, and some damage was sustained at the back of the house. PLYMOUTH- DOCK, AUG. 2 Yesterday, ar- rived the Vinago gun- brig, Lieutenant Pettman, having in tow a ship, waterlogged, called the Re- liance, which she picked up in the Western Ocean, without a mast, bowsprit, or rudder, or anything living on board. She appears to burden upwards of 500 tons, and being laden with the valuable ar- ticle of masts, she was by this means kept afloat. Her sides are covered with barnacles, and she ap- pears so weather- beaten, that she might be sup- posed to have been in the water 12 months. The Virago fell in with her five weeks ago, since that time she has been towing into port. A bottle was found in her pump, containing a memorandum in pencil mark, of her being fallen in with, on the 24th of May, by a British frigate, who took out of her six men and an officer," and left her on the wide ocean. She is a Danish- built ship, supposed to be sent to Quebec as a transport in the English service, and loaded with masts for a foreign market, computed to be worth 30,0o0l. About six weeks since the Cadmus, Captain Wynter, fell in with the same vessel, out of which she took some spars; but having dispatches on board, reluctantly quitted her. The Virago's Officers and crew were reduced to short- allowance, from the length of time she had her in tow. She is brought up along- side the dock- yard, and, as soon as an answer re- turns from the Admiralty, it is thought she will be unloaded in the mast- pond. FOR THE LEWES AND BRIGHTHELMSTON JOURNAL. The following Verses, written by F. NEWBERY, Esq. for the Anniversary of the Royal Society of Musicians, ( an Institution for the relief of the aged and unfortunate Persons of the Profession, and the Families) were set in a beautiful glee and chorus, accompanied by wind instruments, by the celebrated Dr. Crotch; and performed with the happiest effect, at the last meeting at Willis's Rooms. Sweet soother of the soul! Who seek'st the helpless, and forlorn, To aid with kind controul. ' Tis thine to cheer the Minstrel's heart, When low his sands are running; When his faint voice denies its ait, His hands forget their cunning. When gone, and in the grave he lies, Borne down by weight of years; ' Tis thine to hush the Orphan's cries. And dry the widow's tears. ' Then shall the Sons of Song rejoice, Their grateful strains shall raise; ' And every heart in every voice, " Shall celebrate thy'. praise. [ \ n:• • • And while thy care, thy power benign, In vocal peals they hail; The breathing instruments shall join, And swell the tuneful gale.

Lord George Stuart of his Majesty's Ship ttie Amiable, addressed to Rear Ad- miral Sir Richard Strachan, and a Duplicate of which has been transmitted to the Hon. W. W. Poie. His Majesty's Ship L'Aimable, off Cuxhaven, SIR, July 29, 1S09. TIE French troops in Hanover, not content with frequent predatory and piratical in- cursions in the neighbourhood of Cuxha- ven, had the audacity to enter the village Ritzbuttle with a body of horseat mid day, 011 Wednesday, the 26th imtant, and very narrowly snissed making several officers of the squadron pri- soners. In consequence I was induced to land a de- tachment of seamen and marines from the vessels composing the squadron under my orders, for the purpose, if possible, of intercepting them. In the ardour of pursuit we advanced until we got sight of the town of Bremerlake, into which we learnt they had retreated. The information was incorrect. On entering the town we were assured that the enemy, to the number of about 250, occupied the town of Gessendorf, two miles distant, and further, that it contained a depot of confiscated merchandize. It was resolved instantly to attack it. For this purpose Capt. Goate of the Mosquito, advanced with a de- tachment, while I directed Capt. Pettet of the Bri- seis to take a circuitous route, and take a well con- structed battery of four 12- potlnders, commanding the river Weser in flank, while the remainder, under my own immediate directions, headed fey Captain Watts, of the Ephira, advanced to attack it in front The road we had to pass subjected us all to. a galling fire of round and grape from the battery, the guns of which were all pointed inwards, and which in Treturn we could only answer by discharges of mus- ketry. Gessendorff, though certainly tenable with the numbers the enemy had opposed to ours, was on the approach of Capt. Goate precipitately evacuat- ed The enemy being previously informed of our ap- proach had put into requisition a number of light '• waggons for the transportation of the foot, in the jear of which sixty well- mounted cavalry drew up. The enemy in the battery, seeing us determined, notwithstanding their fire, to carry our point, and that we were making preparation for forcing a deep and wide creek in their front, abandoned it, and embarked in boats 011 the Weser ready for their re- ception, under a severe fire of musketry from our detachment, with the loss on their part of several killed and wounded. From a fore knowledge of our intentions on the part of the enemy, we made but 4 prisoners, the Commandant of the Battery, Mons. Le Murche, a Lieutenant, and two inferior officers, The battery guns were burst in pieces, the embra- zures demolished, the gun- carriages burnt, together with the magazine, guard houses, & c. & c. The pow- der we brought off, together with six waggon loads of confiscated merchandise. I beg leave to state to you, Sir, for their Lord- ships' information, how much I feel indebted to Cap- tain Goate, for the zeal and ability evinced by him on this, as 011 all other occasions, during the time la has bien commanding officer on the station. I also feel indebted to Capt. Pettet, for his punc tuality and promptness in executing my orders; and can only regret that an opportunity was not afforded liim of distinguishing himself on this occasion 9011- genial to his wishes. But I beg leave particularly to mention Captain Watts, of the Ephira, who in the most gallant and active manner advanced intrepidly in front of the attacking party amid the enemy's galling fire, and Tendered himself equally conspicuous afterwards, for his unremitting exertion in the complete demo- lition of the battery; in the execution of which service, I am concerned to say, he received a wound in the leg, but which from its nature will in no ahape incapacitate him for future service. A want of Zealand activity was discernable no • where ; to every officer and man 1 must award the meed of praise so justly their due; but of Lieute- nant Burgess, of the Pincher, and W. Hawkins, 2d lieutenant of the L'Aimable, lam more competent to speak in favour, for their indefatigable exertions in forwarding my orders to the different detach- ments. The distance from Gessendorf to Cuxhaven is 28 miles; I leave it then to their Lordships to esti- mate the spirit, alacrity, and expedition with which this service must have been performed, when I state that in 44 hours from our departure, the whole de- tachment returned, and were safely embarked on board their respective ships, without the loss of an individual. I have the honour to be, & c. ( Signed) G. STUART. Sir R. J. Strachan, Bart. K. B. & c. & c. [ This Gazette also contains Sir James Sauma- rez's dispatches to the Admiralty, enclosing Capt.

The total of killed in that affair was 17, of vounded 37, on thesideof the British.

LONDON, SUNDAY, AUG. 6. THE EXPEDITION. CAPTURE OF WALCHEREN & FLUSHING. Still we are without official intelligence from the Expedition— but we are happy to lav before our Readers the following letter, which informs us of the surrender of Flushing and the whole island of Walcheren :— " HARWICH, AUG. 4. » • Intelligence has just been brought from the Expedition, by a foreign Vessel which left the Dutch coast last Wednesday night. She had been with the Expedition from Saturday last— on tha < Iay3b. 0ut. Orii P- m,, she was in the midst of otir Expedition, which was then about two miles dis- tant from Flushing. Thev were then at anchor.— Three guns having been fired at the British Admi- ral's ship, the whole of the fleet weighed and stood closer in. The foreign vessel then set sail for ano- ther part of the Dutch coast more to the North- ward, where she remained until Wednesday night, when she received a short note by a fishing vessel, directing her to return with all haste to England, and adding, that—" Flushing had been taken by the the English.— By Flushing the Master of the foreign vessel means the surrender of the whole island of Walcheren. The above intelligence comes from a source that may be relied on " The Court Martial upon Lord Gambier, is con- cluded, and his Lordship has been MOST HONOUR- ABLY ACQUITIED. It is confidently believed in town, that Govern- ment has received positive dispatches of the con- clusive signature of Preliminary Articles of Peace between Austria and France. A private letter from Lisbon, dated the 19th of July, states, that according to the latest accounts, Sir Arthur Wellesley was still at Placentia on the 12th last, waiting the arrival of the light troops under General Crawford. The news of the Ar- mistice would probably reach Madrid about the 26th, and as it would infuse fresh spirit into the French, and give a new impulse to theis operations, we trust that Sir Arthur has not since advanced to that city The armistice of Znaim will enable Bo- naparte to send large reinforcements into Spain, and Sir Arthor would have scarcely arrived at Ma- drid before he would find himself obliged to aban- don it, and endeavour to retreat to the coast. Nothing can be more horrible than the state of a city alternately possessed by friends End enemies. This constant ebb and flow of the tide of war wears a country Into dust and sand. The Arethusa frigate, of 38 guns, Capt Elliott, arrived on Wednesday at Falmouth, in four rfavs from Corunna.— The province of Gallicia, and in- deed the whole of the North West corner of Spain, being cleared of the enemy, we do not expect that the Arethusa has brought any intelligence of im- portance from Corunna. The Seamen of his Majesty's ship Caledonia, ly- ing at Spithead, 011 Friday night illuminated that ship in honour of Lord Gambier's acquittal. Col. Anderson, Commandant of the Chatham Division of Royal Marines, has retired on whole- pay.— Col. Bell, has succeeded him. We are concerned to state the loss of his Majes- ty's brig Jaseur, commanded by Lieutenant Tho- mas Langharne, son of the late Captain Lang- harne. LEWES, AUG. 7, 1809. No official intelligence has yet appeared of the progress made by the great Expedition which lately left this country, and towards which all Europe must be looking with the most anxious solicitude. The account from Harwich, inserted in the pre- ceding column, obtained some credit yesterday, in the Metropolis; but we should have liked it better if it had mentioned the name of the ship which brought the intelligence, and a few further particulars. The last words of the brave Lieutenant Hawkey, who was killed by a grape shot in the brilliant affair near Percola Point, were, " Huzza, push on ; England for ever I" The Local Militia, it will be seen, by the LORD LIEUTENANT'S advertisement, in the front page of this paper, are exonerated from the duty which it was expected they would be called upon to perform in tha autumn of the present year. An Act has lately passed for the more effectual prevention of frauds committed on Ship Owners Merchants, and others, by Boatmen, Pilots, and Hovellers, respecting anchors, cables, and other property lost at Sea; and we understand that per- sons are empowered at every out- port to carry the Act into execution. The same Act obliges all per sons dealing in maritime stores to note the same by having their names painted on their premises in let ters six inches in length, under a penalty for not complying with the same. We understand that licences were received du ring the last week, at the Custom- house, Newhaven for seven persons to act as pilots at that Port, and on the coast from Dungeness to Selsea Bill, under the authority of the late Att for the better regula tion of pilots. A French Privateer, which a few days since made her appearance, in company with another, off Beachy- head, has been taken by the Osprey Sloop, commanded by Capt. Finch, and sent into cither Portsmouth or Dover. Owing to the strong westerly winds which have prevailed ever since the embargo has been taken off, there have been no arrivals of coals in the ports of this county; that necessary article there- fore continues at a high price; but, should the number of transports now employed oh the expe- dition, be paid off in the course of six weeks, the markets may be well supplied for winter consump- tion, otherwise fuel will be a very scarce and dear article. The Assizes for the county of Kent, held at Maidstone, finished on Thursday last.— Thomas Smithers, for horsestealing; William Austen, Thos. Pollard,, and William Francis, for sheepstealing ; Robert Hughes and Charles Rowles, for burglary ; William Boreham, for stealing naval stores; and William Hall, for stealing two logs of mahogany, on a wharf adjacent to the river Medway, were capitally convicted, and received sentence of death, but were all reprieved before the Judges left the town. Jeremiah Barlow, and Francis Hudson, were convicted of felonies, and sentenced to seven years transportation each. Ann Courtney, John Lewis, John Wenham, Thomas Slaughter, and Thomas Corbett, were also convicted of felonies, and or- dered to he imprisoned and kept to hard labour, in the House of Correction at Maidstone, Ann Court- ney, for the space of two years, and the others, one year each. George Moore, a Serjeant in the 12th Light Dragoons, was found guilty of manslaughter, and ordered to be imprisoned for the space of six months. On the Nisi PRIUS sida, thirty- five causes were entered for trial, eight of which stood for special juries; but of these the following, only, has any claim to public notice: DEEDS V. ABBOTT, PERCEVAL, and others. It was an action for timber sold for the purposes of the Royal Military Canal, at Hythe. The Plaintiff claimed to be paid for all the timber he had furnished of FOUR inches girth, and it was proved that he and his father had, for many years, been, in the . habjt of measuring to that dimension, and' had actually sold to Col, Brown, who bought for Government in the present instance, and had twice before so bought of the Plaintiff, without complaint. The Defendants admitted the purchase, but con- tended the agreement was for pasts and rails for the canal, and that a considerable part of the tim- ber delivered was not fit for that purpose, and proved that the CUSTOM of Kent was to measure to the girth of six inches, ONLY. The Judge held, that as the Plaintiff sold differ- nt from the custom of the County, he should have given notice of the same prior to the agree- ment's being entered into; and the Jury, in con- sequence, gave a verdict for the Defendants. The Judges of Assize, on the Home Circuit, ar- rived here on Saturday evening, and opened the Commission. Yesterday their Lordships, accom- panied by the High Sheriff, went to St. Michael's Church, where a sermon was preached by the Sheriff's Chaplain, suitable to the occasion. The business will commence in both Courts this morn- ing at nine o'clock.— On the side of NISI PRIUS, 26 Venires have been returned, and last night 6 causes were entered for trial. On the Crown side the business will be light, there being only one aveise, and nine prisoners for trial, viz. Richard Morris, for stealing a rabbit, in the warren of the Earl of Ashburnham.— William Martin, for steal- ing in a lodging- room, in the dwelling- house of Michael Tiltman, of Rye, a pair of velveteen breeches, the pro- perty of William Watson.— Henry Charman, the elder, for stealing a mare, together with a saddle and bridle the property of John Neal, of Bignor.*— James Leping' well; and John Trigg, for stealing in our barracks, fou,- woollen blankets, the property of the King- Benja_ min Baker, for receiving the said woollen blankets, knowing them to W— » toteti. Samuel Fairs, tor burglariously entering, in the absence pf the family, the dwelling- house of James Beeny, of Crow- hurst, and therein stealing two cotton gowns, and other artielcs of wearing apparel, the property of him, the staid James Beeny.— Mercy Wickham, tor felonious y stealing in a field at Wadhurst, 14 yards of linen cloih, value 4fis. the property of James Rogers.— And James, otherwise George Cox, for having feloniously stolen in the parish of Ashburnham, two silver watches, one pair of half boots, and a great coat, the property of differ- ent persons. Our Theatre, which was fashionably attended on every night last week, will this evening, close for the summer season, with MAN AND WIFE, and MODERN ANTIQUES, under patronage that we think cannot fail of producing a bumper, in return for the liberality with which the Managers have conducted their business during their short stay amongst us. The rage for Theatricals must he great indeed, when the little town of Seaford can sport its CORPS DRAMATIQUE, and thrice a week give support to their struttings in the sock and buskin I Tunbridge- Wells has been, for some time past unusually full of company. The Master of the Ce- remonies' Ball is fixed for Tuesday next, and we have no doubt but it will be brilliantly and very numerously attended.— See advertisement. SUSSEX AGRICULTURAL REPORT, Aug. g — The Wheat crops have considerably bettered in appearance since our last Report; but the late rains have, in many places, very much beaten them down. — Barley on the Downs, is generally a good crop ; and the Oats are expected to produce a fair aver- age quantity; some fields of the latter have been already cut. Pease are very hackward, and rather deficient. Turnips are generally promising, but the slugs have been partially very active among the latter sown ones. The Hops are not expected to produce a fourth of the quantity of last year. Lindfield Lamb Fair, on Saturday, was the largest ever remembered Between 30,000 and 40,000 South Down lambs were penned, and nearly all sold. Head lambs fetched from 19s. to 22s. 6d. a few prime ones 24s. and culls, from 13s. to 17s. At Broad- Oak Fair, on the Dicker, oil Monday se'nnight, nearly NINE THOUSAND sheep and lambs were exhibited for sale. In our last, by a typogra- phical error, the number was stated at only 900. At Buxted Fair, on Monday last, two lespectr able men, the one aged 36, and the other 67, were duped of two guineas each, by the stale trick of pricking in the belt I At what age is man exempt from folly ? The match of cricket to he played on the Cliff- hill, Lewes, on Wednesday next, between New- haven and the Cliffe, is expected to be a well- con- tested game; but the odds at present are against Newhaven. The furzes, which we in our last stated had been wantonly set on fire near our Race Course, were the property of Mr. Tourle, of Landport, near this town, at whose expence the same species of fun has been twice practised within the last two years; that gentleman, therefore now, very properly, offers a reward of TEN GUINEAS, for the discovery of the incendiaries. See Advt. A few nights ago the house of a poor man, at Westham, named Samuel Brook, was broken into and robbed of a box, containing nearly the whole of his wife's apparel, and a gold ring, by some villains who escaped with their booty. The box was after- wards found empty, in a neighbouring field. A youth of 13 years of age, the only son of Sir Edward Pryce, Bart, of Brook- House, in the county of Somerset, and of Westmoreland- House, London, has been ever since the 17th ultimo, mis- sing from the residence of his disconsolate parents. The young gentleman, will on his attaining the age of 21 years, become possessed of a fortune of 20,0001. per annum. For a dsscription of his per- son, & c. See advertisement. MARRIED. On Wednesday last, Capt. Betts, of the Lion Revenue Cutter, to Miss E. Holt, se- cond daughter of John Holt, of Rye, gent, on which occasion flags were hoisted and guns fired at Rye, and as soon as the ceremony was over the po- pulace took the horses from the carriage and drew the happy pair to the new turnpike- gate, and after giving them many congratulatory cheers, departed. BRIGHTON, AUGUST7, 1809. His Royal Highness the PRINCE OF WALES is expected, at his Pavilion, on Thursday, or Friday next, in order to celebrate there, the anniversary of his birth- day, which is on Saturday. Preparations are also making for the Duke and Duchess of MARLBOROUGH, who are expected at their house adjoining the Pavilion, in the course of the present week.

Ensign, da- ted March 14, 1809, appear in the Gazette of Sa- turday last. Our Theatre, under the able and spirited ma nagement of Messrs. BRUNTON and FIELD, was last week the principal resort of elegance and fashion ; and it will this week, no doubt, become the very eentre of attraction, as MRS. SIDDONS, who here, has catered into an engagement with ttie Ma- nager, to play three night. Her first appearance will be to- morrow evening, when she personates Mrs. BEVERLY, in the GEMESTER.— See Advt. Last Monday; one of the stage coaches from London to this place, was overturned on its passage through the streets to the office, by which accident a lady withinside had her coller- bone broken, an outside passenger his thigh fractured, and the stable keeper, who had just before ascended the dickey be- hind, suffered some very severe bruises, but the coachman escaped without receiving the least injury The unfortunate sufferers, we are glad to hear, are in a fair way of doing well. Oats have been cut in this neighbourhood, and should the weather prove more settled, the wheat harvest will commence in the course of the present week. On Friday se'nnight, a child belonging to a la- bouring man named Russell, at Etchingliam, was drowned iff the river near that place. The BRUTAL OUTRAGE, SO loudly complained of at Worthing, appears to lie enveloped in more mystery, than the affair, which, some years ago, so much distinguised the BRIGHTON TAYLOR. MARRIED.

French Journals have been received to the 25th last. They announce the execution of some of the articles of the fatal armistice of Znaim. Presburg has been delivered up to the French army, and the Austrians having evacuated the Tyrol, the brave and loyal inhabitants of that ill- fated coun- try have been obliged to implore the mercy and forgiveness of the Corsican. The Argus has made tome observations on this unfortunate event. Joseph Bonaparte, it is said, has returned to Madrid, from his Southern expedition ; the flight and disperson of the insurgents having rendered his presence no longer necessary. The French Papers contain an article dated Rome, July 10, • which states that the new Government has issued a great number of decrees, abolishing the Inquisi- tion, as also several special tribunals, divesting the clergv, both secular and regular, of all temporal jurisdiction, and annulling all clerical privileges. The right of asylum exists no longer, and thus the principals and accomplices it) crimes will no lon- ger be withdrawn from justice. Among these nu- merous decrees, the wisdom of many of which cannot be disputed, there is one appointing a com- mittee for the preservation of all the ancient and modern monuments of Rome, and the Roman States. It may be doubted whether Bonaparte be more formidable as a reformer, than as a conque- ror. FROM THE DUTCH PAPERS, The Dutch papers contain a Circular Mandate, addressed bv Bonaparte, on the 13th u It. to the Bishops, commanding them to offer up pravers on account of the victories of Enzersd of and Wagram. In this instrument he savs:— " Though our Lord Jesus Christ sprang from the blood of David, he sought no worldly empire; on the contrary, he required that in concerns of this life men should obev Caesar. His great object was, the deliverance and Salvation of souls. We, the inheritors of Caesar's power, are firmly resolved to maintain the independence of our throne, and the inviolability of our rights. We shall persevere in the great work of the restoration of the worship of God: we shall communicate to its Ministers that respectability which we alone can give them: we shall listen to their voice in all that concerns spiritual matteis and affairs of conscience. We eliall not be drawn aside from the great enel which we strive to attain, and in which we have hitherto succeeded in part— the restoration of the altars of our divine worship; nor suffer ourselves to be per- suaded, that these principles, as Greeks, English, Protestants, and Calvinists affirm, are inconsistent with the independence of Thrones and Nations. God has enlightened us enough to remove such errors far from us. Our subjects entertain 110 such fear." COMMON COUNCIL. COLONEL WARDLE's THANKS. The Motion for rescinding the vote of Thanks to Colonel Wardle, in the Common Council of the City of London, fell to the ground; and the fol- lowing resolutions, moved by Alderman Goode- here became the original question, which was car, ried against Mr. Mawman's amendment, by a ma- jority of five•— Resolved, That this Court did, on the 6th day of April last, express its thanks and gratitude to Gwyllym Lloyd Wardle, Esq. for his conduct in bringing forward and substantiating serious charges against the late Commander- in- Chief, which, not- withstanding the majority in his favour, in the House of Commons, compelled his resignation. That no circumstance has since transpired which can in anv manner lessen the importance of that investigation, impeach his motives, or affect the merits of the case. On the contrary, his unwearied exertions, perseverance, and fortitude, under un- exampled threats and difficulties, have developed a scene of scandalous abuse and corruption, not onlv in the army, but in various departments of the State. That it has heen discovered by the said investi- gation, that these abuses have extended, not only to the disposal of Church and East India Patron- age, but also to the disposal of Seats in the Legis- lature, and charges have heen brought forward, and proofs offered, implicating in such corruptand illegal traffic Lord Viscount Castlereagh, the Hon. Spencer Perceval, and the Hon. Henry Wellesley, all Members of the House, and then and now hold- ing ostensible situations in bis Majesty's Govern- ment; a traffic, which, in the language of the Speaker of the House of Commons, " would bring a greater scandal upon the Parliament and the Nation, than this Country has ever known, since Parliament has had an existence." That the said investigation has also led to the discovery, that the said Lord Castlereagh, one of his Majesty's Secretaries of State, and late Presi- dent of the Board of Controul, did, in flagrant breach of his dntv as a Minister, abuse of £ is patronage, and gross violation of the Constitution, place a Writership in the hands of Lord Clancarty, a Member of the said Board, for the purpose of obtaining for him a Seat in Parliament; which fact the said Lord Castlereagh has himself admitted; and, notwithstanding there appeared a smaller ma- jority in his favour than appeared in favour of the Duke of York, in manifest injustice to his Royal Highness, and gross insult to the nation, the said Lord Castlereagh still retains his official situation. That these attacks upon the vital principles of the Constitution have been made without punish- ment or; censure and motions for inquiry int such practices have been rejected, upon the alledged frequency and notoriety of them; and Parliament has thereby, as well as by passing a Bill to prevent the Sale of Seats in that House, recognized and acknowledged the corrupt influence under which it has been called together, and exercised its functions. That it was stated by Mr. Wardle, that there was an office publicly kept open for the sale of Places under Government, and although such statement, when made, only excited the derision of Ministers and the House, it has since appeared that the above statement was correct; and his Ma- jesty's Ministers have indicted and convicted seve- ral persons concerned therein, and such practices were declared in the said indictment to have a tendency to degrade, vilify, and traduce and bring into contempt, the Administration of the country. That by various statements which Mr. Wardle has lately submitted to Parliament, it appears, that, by a correction of the frauds, abuses, corruption, and peculation, which have been found to exist in every branch of the public expenditure, to which inquiry has extended, and a wise and honest appli- cation of our resources, the people might be re- lieved from heavy and oppressive burdens, if nor wholly from that inquisitorial and most grievous of all imposts, the Tax upon Income. That his con- duct on this occasion seems to have drawn upon him, in a high degree, the malice and rancour of those, who are interested in the continuance of these abuses That in the op'nion of this Court, individuals who devote their exertions towards exposing and correcting public abuses, are at all times entitled to the support and protection of the country, par- ticularly at the present moment, when there ap- pears an unabating effort, on the part of those no- toriously under the influence of Government, or who participate in the existing frauds, corruptions, and peculations, to cry down, vilify, and traduce every man who has courage and integrity to ex- pose such practices, in order to mislead the public, and divert their attention from these great evils. GALLANT ACTION. We have been apprised by the Swedish Papers of an attack upon a Russian flotilla, in the Baltic The following is, we understand, an- authentic account of that achievement:— In the beginning of last month, the Russian flotilla took up a posi- tion under a point called Bencola, having each of its wings flanked by a rock. Here the enemy fan- cied them salves secure from all attack. The Bri- tish squadron entertained a contrary opinion. The boats of the Bellerophon, Implacable, Melpo- mene, and Prometheus, were accordingly manned under the command of Lieutenant Hawky, to at- tack the enemy in their strong position.— They were received on their approach, by a heavy fire from the flotilla, and the two rocks on which the enemy had planted some cannon. Our gallant tars, diregarding the fire of the enemy, ad- vanced with their characteristic bravery, and re- served their fire until they came close to the flo- tilla, when they opened upon it, boarded it sword in hand, and drove all before them.— The flotilla consists of eight gun- boats, each mounting a 32 and 24- pounder, and 46 men. Six of these were brought out, and one was sunk. There were, besides, twelve vessels under the protection of the flotilla, laden with powder and provisions for the Russian army— these weie all taken, and a large ship was burnt. We grieve to say, that Lieutenant Hawky, as promising an officer as any in our service, was kil- led by a grape- shot, after he had taken one of the gun- boats. Lieut. Sterling, of the Prometheus, was so severely wounded, that he died soon after the action— Mr. Mouteney, a midshipman was killed. We had 17 killed, and 37 wounded. The loss of the Russians was much greater; they had 63 killed, a great number were drowned, anil 127 Were made prisoners, of whom 51 are wounded. AGRICULTURE, & C. MONTHLY REPORT FOR JULY. The Whea Crops have generally gone off the bloom well; jut in the principal corn districts of Kent and Essex, they are too thin 011 the ground for a considerable produce: in the Midland Coun- ties they are far more promising. Upper cold clay soils the Oats and Barleys have not recovered from the heavy rai:> s which proved so injurious to these plants in the spring; but on light lands they pro- mise a full average crop Beans, Pease, and all articles of the pulse kind, prove generally defec- tive.— The harvest will probably prove a late one. Potatoes look promisingly in most counties ; but in Ireland, where thev are so essential to the suste- nance of the people, the crops arc likely to prove very light from the drought that has continued so long in that island. The Hop Plantations have much recovered by the favourable rains, and are expected to turn out half a crop. The Meat Mar- kets have declined in price considerably in the course of the month, particularly Smithfield, from its abundant supplies. Lean Stock continues dear, both in Sheep and Neat Caitle. The Wool Market has had a further rise for long as well as short wool: fine South Down Fleeces fetch 4s. and Me- rino as high as 15s. per lb. ESSEX ASSIZES. Before the LORD CHIEF JUSTICE. RAPES. John Ryan, a soldier in the 57th regiment, was indicted for ravishing Susannah Hall, on the 28th of May last. This was a most cruel case, as detailed by the prosecutrix, a girl of 17, who stated that she was nursery maid to Captain Buntling, of the 92d regiment, and, on the night in question, she was going from Week ley Barracks, in company with one Connel, who, it appeared, was her sweet- heart. After they had passed the centinel some way, thev met three soldiers, one of whom she kiiew to be Ryan, the Prisoner. One of them laid hold of her, and attempted to free her from Con- nel's arm. Connel told them she was not a bad girl, and desired them to desist. Ryan swore he did not care what she was, for he would have her: the other two then forced her awav from Connel, and dragged her to a neighbouring field, while Ryan stood guard over Connel, to prevent him in- terfering. When the two other soldiers got her in the field, they dragged her through a small pond, then threw her dowr » and violated her; afterwards, Ryan did the same. This they repeated twice, the Prisoner Ryan being the last man. She was posi- tive to the person of Ryan, as he had a broken tooth in front, and his teeth projected. The Pri- soner. evidently with great care, kept his mouth shut; hut upon being called upon for his defence, when he spoke, it appeared that his teeth were as the Prosecutrix had described. Her statement was corroborated by Connel, who also identified the person of the prisoner. Verdict, Guilty. George Nelson was indicted for violating Eliza- beth, the wife of James Pool, on the 30th of March last. The prisoner was an artilleryman, quartered at Warley Barracks, and the prosecutrix said her hus- band « as ostler at an inn at Brentwood. On the 30th of March, she had been at Warley Barracks, whither she usually went to sell small articles. As she was returning home through the fields in the evening, she found it getting dark, and saw the pri- soner following her. She paused a moment whether to return to the Barracks or not, but found herself further off than she expected The Prisoner asked her why she was going so fast ?— she replied, she thought her husband was coming to meet her, and she expected him every minute. She walked on, and shortly heard the prisoner behind her, who threw her down and stopped her mouth with one hand. Me perpetrated his purpose, and just then her cries brought two persons to her assistance, Bombardier Roberts and Serjeant Duncan. She knew the latter; he seized the prisoner, who then pretended to be drunk, hut she was sure he was not. Roberts and Duncan were both gone on the expedition. The Jury found the Prisoner guilty, and he was sentenced to be transported for life. MURDER. John Tierney was convicted of the wilful mur- of Samuel Watkinson, at Colchester, on the 2$ th of June last. The comiuct of this Prisoner was most unac- countably wanton. He had no malice against the deceased in particular, but in a fit of brutality de- clared he would knock down whoever came near him. The deceased unfortunately came in his way,' and he struck him with his bludgeon, which knocked him down: when the poor man rose, he repeated his blows, and actually killed him. He was sentenced t « be immediately hanged on Monday morning. Walter Clement.;, Gale, and Simmons, for house breaking, and Ryan, for the rape, were also left for execution. The Chief Baron did not finish until late on Saturday, but the Common Jury Causes were very uninteresting. WINCHESTER RACES. Tuesday, his Majesty's Plate of lOOgs. was won, « t three heats, by Mr. Trevanion's Bucephalus, beating three others.— Wednesday, the Noblemen and Gentlemen's Plate of 50l. was won by Mr. Bou- verie's Smallhopes, beating three others. Same day, Mr. Dilly's b. h. Gnatho, 6yrs old, walked over the course for the City Plate; and the Hun- ter's Plate of 50l. was won by Mr. Morant's Lord Warden, beating Mr. Cox's Godolphin.— The La- dies' Plate of 50l was run for on Thursday: Mr. Frost's Barley- corn, Mr. Chilman's Tumbler, and Mr. Dilly's Sturdy, were entered for this race, but before starting Sturdy was drawn. Barley- corn and Tumbler were so well matched, that they ran three very close heats, ( the second being a dead heat) but Barley- corn won the Plate. The Subscription Cup, value 70gs. was won bv Strip- ling, named by Mr. Dundas, beating Gnatho, named by Mr. Drummond. DIED. Mrs. Rolfe, wife of Mr. W. D. Rolfe, surgeon, of Bristol. As she was proceeding to London on the night of the 25th ult. in one of the coaches, a storm of thunder and lightning frightened the horses about two miles distant from Reading, and the coachman having given a sudden pull to the near side leading horse which had stumbled, the rein broke, and the leaders ran across the road, when the two near- side wheels got upon the foot- way; one of the outside passengers immediately jumped off and secured the leaders, but the coach- man afterwards in his fright getting down on that side of the coach which hung over, it immediately fell to the ground. It is supposed Mrs. Rolfe burst a blood- vessel during the fright, which shortly ter- minated her existence. None of the other passen- gers were materially hurt. A few days since, in a workhouse at Liverpool, Mary Elizabeth Williams, a female pauper, at the extraordinary age of 124 years. THE FINE ARTS. On Thursday the scaffolding and awning were removed from the statue erected in Russell- square, in honour of the late Duke of Bedford. Many friends of the Duke and lovers of sculpture attend- ed : the effect produced on the spectators was a lively admiration of the performance, mingled with emotions of regret for the loss of 3 Nobleman who delighted in promoting the good of his country.— The statue is colossal ; the attitude well chosen- graceful and manly; the folds of drapery are am, pie, yet sufficiently detailed. His Grace reposes one arm on a plough, the left hand holds the gifts of Ceres, conforming with the genera! plan of a monument intended to mark the Duke's patriotic fondness for agricultural pursuits. Spring, Sum- mer, Autumn and Winter, persotiificd in the en- dearing semblance of children, play round the feet of the statue, whose apparent magnitude seems augmented by the contrast. The pedestal, in em- bellishments and size, is well adapted to the pur- poses of illustration and strength: to the four cor- ners are attached bulls' heads, in very high relief, the cavity immediately beneath the upper mould- ing is adorned with herds of cattle in recumbent postures; on the curved sides are rural subjects in basso relievo; the first represents the preparation for the ploughman's dinner; the husbandman's wife, on her knees, attends the culinary depart- ment ; a youth, sounding a horn, two rustics, and a team of oxen at rest, finish the groupe— The second composition is made up of reapers and gleaners variously employed; the young woman in the centre is delineated with the comeliness and grace of a village favourite. These enrichments, the four Seasons, and the statue of the Duke, are all cast in bronze, and so very successfully, that, with the polish of high finishing, they preserve the spirit of an original model. The massy materials of the pedestal is Scotch granite, and, together with the superstructure, measures, from the level ground to tlie summit of the monument, 27 feet. The principal figure is nine feet high. DIED. On the 5th ult. at Port Royal, Martinique, af- ter an illness of four days, of a violent fever, Miss Ramsay, aged 18, only daughter of General Ram- say, Adjutant General to the forces, Leeward and Windward Islands. NO Medicine is so well calculated, or has bet- ter succeeded in giving relief in numerous bad cases of Scrophula, tlian SPILSBURY'S PATENT AN- TISCORBUTIC DROPS, a fresh supply of which is just received by Mr. PHILLIPSON, Brighton, a trial will prove this, and convince even the tender anxiety of parents, when the glands become first swelled and dis- eased, or the usual symptoms of scropulous enlarge- ment of the stomach in children takes place.

THE GREAT RESTORATIVE TO HEALTH MANN's APPROVED MEDICINE For violent Coughs, Colds, Asthmas, Consumptions, Hooping Cough, Convulsions, and debilitated Consti- tutions, patronized by Ladies and Gentlemen of the first distinction. ACHILD of Mrs. Sharp, of Horsham, about three years old, had been dangerously ill, for up- wards nf twelve months, attended with loss of appetite, great pain in her bowels, so much debilitated, that her flesh was wasted to such a degree, as to reduce her al- most to a skeleton, by taking MANN'S APPROVED MEDICINE, found relief ill a short time, and in three weeks came with her mother, to Mr. Mann, of Horsham, 011 foot, a distance of three miles, in the enjoyment of health. Mrs. Sharp thinks it right that the extraordi- nary cure of her daughter, should be made public. ( Signed) SARAH SHARP, Horsham, May sJ( j, 1809. MANN'S APPROVED MEDICINE, strengthens the coats of the stomach, helps digestiou, crentcs an appetite, and reanimates the whole frame. Fifteen affidavits of remarkable cures effected I> y this celebrated remedy, sworn before different Justices of the Peace, for the county of Sussex, and patronized by Ladies and Gentle- men of the first distinction.

IT is mnch to be regretted, but indisputably cer- tain, that many persons of both sexes are deterred from entering into the married state, by infirmities, which delicacy forbids thein to disclose ; and there are not a few, who being already married, are rendered miserable, for want of those tender pledges of mutual love, without which, happiness in this state, is at least, very precarious. It has been ascertained beyond doubt that these circumstances are occasioded by a general or partial relaxation or weakness in either sex ; and it is equally certain, that the genuine AROMATIC LOZENGES OF STEEL Arc the best, if not the only remedy for this species of debility. When taken into the stomach, they immedi- ately diffuse themselves like a vapour, through every pore, producing effects, at once delightful, salutary, and permanent. When the spark of life begins to grow dim, the circulation languid, and the faculty paralysed, these Lozenges are sound to give tone to the nerves, ex- animate the animal spirits, invigorate the body, and re- animate the whole mail. When aversion to exercise, loss of appetite, and palid countenance indicate approaching consumption, the delicate female will be preserved, and restored to health and vociety, by the benign influence of this medicine. When the delusion of imagination, or the force of bad example have tempted unguarded youth into the dangerous labyrinths of secret sensuality, debi- itated his body, or impaired his understanding, tbese Lozenges will protect him from lingering dissasc, the infirmities of premature old age, and a wretched disso- lution. When by luxurious banquets, copious libations, Paphian excesses, and midnight revels, the sons and daughters of dissipation have brought on themselves debility, relaxation, imbecility, and a long train of ner- vous complaints, these Lozenges will restore health and vigour to the debilitated frame, and cheerfulness and animation to the mind. The AROMATIC LOZENGES OF STEEL arc prepared genuine, by the Inventor, Dr. Senate, and by his ap- pointment are sold by Messrs, Parsons, at their circula- ting library, 46, Ludgate- Hill ; also by Mr. Green, U98, Oxford Street, near Dean Street; Messrs. Bell and Co. 319, Strand, near the Lyceum ; by Mr, W. Lee, Lewes, and all the Newsmen ; and by most respectable medi- cine venders, price 8s. per boxd, duty included. Markets CORN- EXCHANGE.
