The Committee which was appointed at the last Court, presented their Report, that after due consi- deration and mature delih- jation, they were unani- mously of opinion, that the celebratiou of the next 25th of October, should be by the Corporation at- tending Divine Service en that day, by presenting an Address of Congratulation to his Majesty, and by il- luminating the front of Guildhall 011 the evening of the 25th ; but the Committee were unanimously of opinion, that it was not necessary or expedient that the Corporation should dine together in their cor- porate capacity. " Alderman Wood said, that it became his duty to propose some Resolutions, in consequence of this Re- port, as he had accidentally been called to the Chair in that Committee, from ihe circumstance of no other Alderman having been present. It did not follow, however, that because lie happened to be the Chair- man of that Committee, he must necessarily vote for those Resolutions that were to be submitted on the part of the Committee. As to the attending Di- vine Service, and presenting an Address of congratu- lation, he thought that was all very proper; but he protested against that part of the Report which re- commended the illuminating the front of Guildhall. This would certainly be considered as a signal, that the City was to be illuminated, and he thought it was 110 time for rejoicing, when sncli numbers of British lives bad lately been thrown away in ill- planned and foolish Expeditions. It would be an insult to the many families now in mourning for the loss of sons and brothers, to tell them they must now celebrate a day ef public rejoicing. Mr. hearn objected to the Report of the Com- mittee, as not going far enough. He was not sur- prised at the nature of the Report, when he recol- lected that there were many Gentlemen appointed Members of that Committee, whose principles were repugnant to the objects for which it was appointed. He believed, that notwithstanding the Report, there were many of them who would neither go to Church nor to St. James's upon that day.—( A laugh.)— He thought the mode proposed was not sufficient to ex- press their respcct for his Majesty. The world would scarcely believe, that in a City so fond of eating and thinking as London, ( a laugh) the pro- posal for a dinner should have been scouted, and every mail recommended to eat his mutton- chop at home. — As for himself, lie would rallier forego a Lord Mayor's dinner, lliati the pleasure of a dinner 011 thai day, in compliment to his Majesty. Alderman Scholey did not think tlie Committee bad gone far enough. If 110 Address had yet been drawn up, he had one iu his pocket, which he wish- ed to read. • Mr. Griffiths said, that he was surprised at the observation that some Members would not go to church, coining- from a man who had been long a Member of that Court, but who had never gone to St. Paul's. " That is a falsity," exclaimed Mr. Hearn. Mr. Kemble hoped the Lord Mayor would pre- vent for the future, language of this description.— There were often personalities used in that Court, that would be too gross to be used in almost any other place. Mr. Griffiths continued.— Whoever knew the edu- cation of that Gentleman, would not be surprized at his language. He himself felt as much loyalty uud respect to lfis Sovereign as any other man; but he did not think public dinners were the be> t means of" shewing it. Mr. Samuel Dixon proposed, that instead of taking the whole Report together, those clauses should be first submitted to the Court upon which there was no probability of a difference of opinion. As for him- self, he was a friend to the dinner, and thought that the best way of returning thanks to the Almighty, was by cheerfulness and enjoyment of the blessings lie bestowed. Mr. Waithman then rose. He had attended the Committee, and put his name to the Report, which was given as the act of the Committee : he did not, however, conceive himself to be thereby restrained from delivering his opinion, when the subject came under discussion in that Court. As to the first observation made by a Member of that Court ( Mr. Hearn), that many Gentlemen were appointed to the Committee who were not favourable to its objects, he should answer that at least four- tiflbs of the Mem- bers of the Committee were composed of Gentle- men of the other side, and that it had always been the custom of that Court, not to choose their Committee entirety from one party. It was some- what extraordinary that this Gentleman ( Mr. Hearn), who was himself a Member of that Committee, and attended its proceedings, should now find such se- rious objections to the Report, although he had ne- ver stated these objections in the Committee. By his attendance, however, in the Committee, he must have known that the Resolutions of the present Re- port had been prepared, not by him, but by a wor- thy Gentleman ( Mr. Jacks) who very often differed from him in that Court. An Honourable and most loyal Baronet ( Sir William Curtis) did not attend at the Committee, and was also absent 011 the prescut occasion. This absence shewed pretty clearly that there was a point, beyond which the loyalty of the Honourable Baronet would not carry him. He, for his part, had gone so much at large into the subject on a former occasion, that he felt some reluctance now to trouble the Court at any length ; but, al- though he hoped that he had briefly brought many most important subjects under tlieii consideration, still there were many essential points which he had overlooked. When be. mentioned to some of his friends, before the last Court, that it was bis inten- tion to come forward and express his sincere opinion upon the subject, they most earnestly dissuaded bint from doing it. It was not that' they were not perfect- ly aware of the artful contrivance from which the bu siness originated ; they were not ignorant ofthe cala- mities which have befallen the country during the present reign; or of the foolery of calling for a day of rejoicing in a period of unexampled affliction.— They knew that the object of the contrivance was to set up aery of loyalty, and throw tlie odium of dis- loyalty upon every one w ho ventured to express a dif- ference of opinion. They, therefore, advised him uot to furnish a handle to that party to excite an odium against him. Notwithstanding this advice, he bad determined to speak his opinion. Whatever odium there might be attached to the opposing an ar- tificial cry of loyalty, lie had never beet, afraid fit en- countering it. A.-> to popularity, if he should earn it, he would be content to wear it; but he never diti, nor ever would decline speaking his real sentiments from any view connected w ith obtaining popularity. He did feel some self- applause in recollecting that lie had resisted a cry w hich wasset up,' from interested mo- tives, and that he had preferred the risk of being un- popular to the desertion ofhis duty in lliat Court as a 3 26 SUNDAY REPORTER. OCT. I. Representative of the City of London. With respect to going to Church, lie thought that wasu very proper thing; but still he was a little surprised at the quarter from which it Was proposed. As to the congra- tulatory Address, lie declared that lie was utterly a- t n loss to conceive what topics of congratulation could be selected, and he should think it a most puzzling thing to shape any Address of Congratulation without filling it with the most gross aud iufamous falsehoods. —\\ hen his Majesty first ascended the Throne we were a lice, happy, and united people, aud our pub- lic affairs were managed by the great Lord Chatham, the ablest Minister this country ever produced. The tuxes then amounted to vei v liltle move than seven millions annually, whereas they have HOW increased to 70 millions. In the commencement of the reign, tile union and happiness of the people were much djstuibed bv the squabbles of the Government. During Mr. Wilkes's time, or until the commencement of the American war, he could see n0 subject of con- gratulation. Passing over then the earlier years of his Majesty's reign, and coming directly to the American war, he must say that this was one of the most wicked and calamitous wars that ever tbe country bad been engaged in; that all the objects of the war, and Ame- rica itseif, were lost; and that the debt of this coun- try was increased to a prodigious extent. lie could say more— that lie believed that all the evils which have overrun the Continent of Europe, aud reduced this country to great danger, might be directly traced to the wicked policy which dictated tbe American war. He therefore could not see room for congratu- lating his Majesty on that portion of his reign which went down to tbe dismemberment of the Empire and the loss of America. If we were to come to more modern times, and look at the history of the last 16 years; we should find that this country has been involved 111 most bloody and calamitous war, for an object which the people never understood. The Country knew when their fleets were iu port, and when they were not; but they never knew what it was that they were fighting for. The calamitous events of these bloody, expensive, and disastrous wars, were certainly not sub jects to congratulate his Majesty upon. Were they to congratulate his Majesty upon the frequent suspen sion of the Habeas Corpus Act and of the Constitu- tion during his reign? Could we congratulate his Majesty upon the Treason and Sedition Rills, in consequence of which many unfortunate young men ( suffered the most severe punishment, for merely re- peating what had been said with greater force at a former period, by the very Ministers who recom- mended the prosecution 1 If we were to return thanks to Almighty God, merely for prolonging the life of bis Majesty, we could not congratulate our Sovereign for having escaped bodily infirmity, nor yet could we congratulate him on his family, or on the success of the measures of his Government. After such unexampled failures as the country lias lately witnessed, it should rather be a time for the City to go up and point out to bis Majesty ihe cause of these failures, than to fix this as a time to have day of rejoicing. At tbe conclusion of the last war against France, after having incurred a fresh debt of 200 millions, the Nation was informed by the Secre- tary at War ( Mr. Yorke) that " although we had gained battles, the objects of the war were lost, and that Europe was gone." Was it then for a war, at- tended with such expence, and so unfortunate in its results, that his Majesty should be congratulated? Or was it for the events of the present war— the Convention of Cintra, the unfortunate occurrences in Spain, or the Expedition to Walcheren, the most disgraceful one that was to be found in the annals of the Country— that a congratulation was to be voted ? He might, therefore, ask what portion was it of his Majesty's long reign, which we could fix upon as the period for a complimentary Address? If the Ad- dress of the City had been attended to on a former occasion, and a proper inquiry instituted respecting the shameful Convention of Cintra, the country would probably, not have had now to lament tbe loss which we have sustained in Spain, from the hasty advance and precipitate retreat of Lord Viscount Wellington " Now, although ihe Convention of Cintra had been felt as most disgraceful to this country, yet there was no man hardy enough to stand up and say, that in this, that, or any other failure, which is recorded iu - the annals of British history, was any thing near so dis graceful and calamitous, as the last and most infamous Expedition, which was entrusted to Lord Chatham There was nobody that would say, that the Income Tax, and the extension of the Excise Laws, were subjects upon which bis Majesty should be congra- tulated.— As to the conduct of our military affairs, it was so extremely bad, that although we have' double tlie number of Generals on our Staff than Buonaparte has, and maintained, probably, at four times the expence; yet when it comes to select Ge- nerals for the command of our Expeditions, we select Whitelocke, a Dalrymple, or a Chatham. Could the Court see, with indifference, the waste of Bri- sh blood which was occasioned by the folly of those who planned, or who had tbe execution of the ob- jects of our Expeditions ! It had beeu said, and ery truly, that the valour of our soldiers and sailors bail been conspicuous in tbe late wars. If so, the reater blame rested upou the Government. If we ad soldiers who would not fight, tbe wisest Govern- ment might fail in its objects; but when it is known hat we have a brave Army aud Navy that will exe- cute well whatever they are called upon to do, the ame will rest exclusively on tbe Government, which, by tbe absurdity of its plans, and its selection of offi- cers, makes British valour useless, and causes tor- euts of British blood to flow for no purpose.— Among the many faults ofthe Government, he would maintain, that although we bad 08 Ambassadors, who received 54,0001. per annum in pensions, iu addition to their pay, yet in the very few Courts in which they would be received, it was almost always found that they were completely ignorant of their duty. We had lately an example of this in America; and in Sweden, although every other man in the country knew that a Revolution was probable, tbe British Ambassador alone appeared to know nothing of the matter. There never was a great country whose affairs had been so ill- managed as the affairs vf this country; and yet Ministers shewed great abilities in some things. They could easily discover all the means that would preveut surcharges from being evaded ; and yet they never could discover the means by which the country's affairs in other respects could be managed wilh honour. At tbe very time that tbe taxes were to be levied with tbe utmost rigour, ac- counts to tlie aniou! t of nine millions of money were yet unsettled at the Victualling Oflice; and above millions of West India accounts were yet unexamined, notwithstanding tlie expence of the Commissioner, appointed for that purpose. In the very last years above nine millions were added to tbe yearly expendi- ture; and when it was considered, that from the year 1797 to the present year, the taxes had increased from ' 23 millions annually to 70 millions, without gaining a single object for which we entered into the war he could not see how his Majesty could be congratulated 011 such calamitous events. It was evidently impos- sible for tbe country to go on much longer under such progressive and enormous accumulation of public burdens. Those Gentlemen on the other side, who were always calling for unanimity in that Court, were acting inconsistently when tbey brought forward per- petually motions which must necessarily disturb that unanimity. He had himself for the whole of bis po litical life, opposed, as far as he was able, the system which had brought so many calamines on the Coun- try. For the greater part of that time, he had been buffeted and hunted down as a Jacobin, and for many years he could only prevail on five Members to divide with him. He however had never turned to the right hand or the left; but regardless of whatever odium the Gentlemen on the other side might excite against him, he had fearlessly pursued through life, and he should iilways continue to do it, that line of conduct which his sense of public duty pointed out ( loud applauses from below the Bar. The Lord Mayor called tbe Gentlemen to order.) These applauses were certainly irregular, and be was happy to say that it was an ir- regularity which did not often take place. There were, however, occasions when it was hard for men to conceal their feelings; and such demonstrations bad been heard, sometimes, in the House of Commons it- self. There were many Gentlemen in that Court, who agreed with him in the most essential points; and yet, because there were some shades of difference, tbey, upon many occasions, threw themselves into tbe arms of the enemy. Nothing could be more mis- chievous or dangerous than such a course. Mr. Fox had elegantly observed, in his History, that " it was much better to concede something to a friend, than every thing to an enemy." He wished that those, who on important points thought as he did, were im- pressed with the truth of this sentiment. As to many of the Gentlemen on the other side, lie might as well talk to stocks or stones, as to address them with any hopes of convincing them. They were evidently play- ing a game of Iheir own ; they were fishing for them- selves, while he bad nothing to hope for or to fear from any Government, and had never obtained or sought any favours. He was astonished that a Gen- tleman who had given notice of a motion for tbe pre- sent day ( Mr. Deputy Kemble), should now feel dif- ferently from what he did upon the Convention of Cintra: O11 that occasion he mentioned, " that bis blood boilfed with indignation, and that he was ready to go up to his Majesty every week with a remon- strance on the subject." That burning zeal, how- ever, must have now considerably cooled, The City of London could shew no better proof of its loyalty t » its Sovereign upon tbe present occasion, than by pointing out to him those enemies who had brougbt- sueh disgraces aud dangers upon the country. AH Honourable and loyal Baronet ( Sir William Curtis) had, upon a former occasion, complained ofhis perso- nality ; but he did not at that time recollect for what a number of years, he, ( Mr. Waithman) hud beeu ex- posed to the personalities of that Hon. Baronet and iits friends. He had, perhaps, forgotten, that when he was in a minority ou the question of the Treason and Sedition Bills, Gentlemen insisted upon a divi- sion, in order that it might be seeu " who were the enemies of the country." As to what was called the inouied interest, although he was himself a trades- man, he would never look much to tbe nioried inte- rest to support constitutional principles; nor to Bank Directors, who can get Acts of Parliament to prevent them paying tbeir notes in cash, and who receive five per cent, for iuterest on a bit of paper intrinsically not worth a penny. On this subject he read a long pas- sage from a speech of Lord Chatham, which had been often quoted, in which his Lordship says, " that he had the most perfect contempt for the Asiatic plun- derers in Leadenhall- street, and for the jobbers in Change- alley; that they were generally a race of blood- suckers and muck- worms, who professed them- selves ready to support every succeeding Administra- tion, but in whom no Administration could place de- pendence. Tliese men always appeared in support of any new war, or loan, or job, in which- they could have any interest." After a variety of other observations, he concluded by moving an Amendment to the origi- nal Motion for agreeing to the Report. The object of tbe Amendment was to substitute a statement, " that the^ ity knew how to distinguish between tbe beneficent intentions of his Majesty, and the profli- gate and wicked system of his advisers ; and that in the present calainilious situation of affairs, it was not adviseable to appoint a day of rejoicing." Mr. hearn defended himself from the allusions which were made to him ; but descending into perso- nalties, he was corrected by the Lord Mayor. Mr. Mawman did not wish t>> find fault wilh any report which any Committee of that Court might think proper to present. In the present instance, however, lie was encouraged by the example of the Committee themselves, many of whom had signed their names, and yet had afterwards retracted their agreement. As far as he could judge from such arc- port, bedid not think tbe day was sufficiently respected; be had thought it was to be celebrated by - A feast, and was surprised at finding this was not the case ; he did not consider an Address on such aw occasion sufficient; and he had a plan to propose, which he hoped would meet the satisfaction of all parlies. He wished to propose, that the Lord Mayor should be requested to lend the Corporation tbe Egyptian Hall, and that they should dine together at their own individual ex- pence. This, he calculated, would be at tbe rate of about a guinea and a half per man, and could not in the whole amount to more than one thousand pounds. Surely such a trifle as this could not be regarded by such a Corporation as the City of London. Many Members bad objected to the celebration of a Jubilee, on account of the dejected state ofthe country; but he would ask what cause there was for dejection? When vyereour roads, our inclosures, our agriculture, our navy, or our commerce in a more prosperous con- dition ? In fact, they never were so flourishing. The present King ought to be respected by all ranks of his subjects; lie had reigned for fifty years over a con- tented people, rulingthem by the laws, aud under the guidance of our blessed Constitution. Mr. Dixon hoped the Court might continue full to the conclusion of the debate. He hoped also, that Members would attend more exactly to the question in debate; for in his opinion, many had deviated widely from it. He had heard Members deny any cause of congratulation 011 the present occasion; but for his part, he thought there was abundant. Alderman Goodbehere thought the questions be- tween the Government and the people ought to I e completely separated. The agriculture and its bene- fits ought to be attributed salely to the people ; the evils arising from a vilely conducted war entirely to the Government. He would ask, was it for a double national debt of 800 millions, a double income- tax, a devastating war, a loss of our American dominions, and all the ruinous consequences of a mistaken po- licy, that we were about to return thanks? Mr. Deputy Kemble spoke in favour of the Report. Mi'. Clarke thought the chief object of the Com- mittee was to congratulate the Sovereign on his long reign, and not at all to advert to the measures of Administration— as a Member of tbe Committee, this was his opinion.

The first and second Resolutions were then put and carried. On the third Resolution, concerning the illumi- nation being proposed, Mr. Kemble said, he hoped only the public build- ings should be illuminated, as the lighting up of private houses might cause much disturbance. Mr. Miller said, the whole question concerning the illumination, reminded him of an old pantomine called Harlequin Touchstone; Harlequin, by virtue of his touchstone, could make any person whom he chose tell ihe truth: coming one night to Paris in a rejoicing, he asked a Parisian- what the illumination was for. The Parisian was just about to equivocate, when Harlequin applied his touchstone, and lie was told the illumination was intended to keep the people in the dark.—( A laugh and loud applause)\ On the fourth Resolution, as lo the Dinner, being put, Mr. Mawman moved an amendment, proposing a dinner. Mr. Marryot fully agreed in the amendment, and said, that on the recovery of the King, in 1789, the Common Council went to church, and, still better, • lined together afterwards— it would be dreadful to go with an empty stomach after coming from a cursed cold Church. ( A general laugh.) Mr. Dixon said, he looked into a Dictionary for tlie meaning of the word " Jubilee,," and found it meant " an hearty, and solemn feast.— ( A laugh.) Sir John Eamer desired to bear if there ever was a precedent of the Corporation's dining at their in- dividual expence. The Clerk knew of no such precedent. Mr. Mawmcn said, as that was the case, he was content to dine at the expence of the Corporation.- ( A laugh.) After a few words from Mr. vandercomb, we un- derstand the amended Resolution for a dinner was carried by a majority of 25. , The Court then divided on a Motion that the Expcnce of the Dinner should be defrayed by the Members individually, The numbers were:— Ayes, 42— Noes, 47.

MR.

STOCKHOLM, SEPT. 14.— His Royal Majesty lias received intelligence, by reports made on the 1st and 2d of this month, by Admiral Baron Puke and Lieut. Gen. Count Wachmeister, that the latter, on the 28th of last month, made good a descent near Rata, with a corps of 1500 men, with which he arrived the following day at Umea, where he occupies a po- sition. The remainder of the Army of the Coast ar- rived at Umea. It appears, by authentic intelligence received from different quarters, that Gen. Kaminskoi, with his re- treating army, reached Skeileftea 611 the 29 th ult. from whence he pursued his march to Pitea. His Royal Majesty has received the following Re- port from Admiral Baron Puke:— " The Tarramas frigate arrived here yesterday with the six gun- boats which were, near Pitea. Ma- jor Hutiswolf, Captain of a frigate, reports, that on the 25th he set sail with the same frigate from Rata, and arrived at five o'clock in the. afternoon at Pitea- Holm, at the south entrance of the harbour. He found that the enemy occupied thereastrong position, but nevertheless he resolved to push on with the gun- boats to the bridge, in order to destroy it, and by this means to cut off Ihe enemy. " For this purpose the Major led on the gun- boats, placing himself at their head in an armed boat, and on this occasion experienced the misfortune of being badly wounded. Capt. Jagerfelt, who suc- ceeded in the command, now advanced against the bridge, the destruction of which was, however, ren dered impossible by the enemy having assembled near it a very superior force, which forced our flotilla to retreat. " Our loss in this action consists in six killed and 17 wounded; among whom are Major Hunswolf and Lieut. Munk. The loss of the enemy, whose force consisted of 500 men, is far more considerable, the number of his wounded being from 6' 0 to 70. The First Lieutenant of the Tarrainas frigate now com- mands that ship. This Officer, whose name is Me- lander, reports, that ou the 26' tli of last month, at three o'clock in the afternoon, he descried a flotilla of 13 Russian boats chasing two detached Swedish sloops, which retreated to the frigate. The latter immediately cut the cable, and cleared for action, but when she came in sight of the enemy's gun- boats, the latter sheered off and took shelter near the coast, where it was not possible for the frigate to attack them. On the 29th instant the frigate received in- telligence of Kaminskoi's retreat to the Northward, which was brought by the brig Delphini. Capt. Boy, on reconnoitring the coast, found it occupied by the enemy in such force, that it was impossible to attempt a landing. ( Signed) " PUKE. " Admiral and Commander in Chief." " Head- quarters, Umea, Sept. 4, 1U09." Count Essen and Baron Lagerijelke, who, by his Majesty's command, are going to Paris on a particu- lar mission, have informed his Majesty, that they set sail from Ystad on the 25th ult. in the evening, reached Stralsund on the 2? lh, at noon, and in- tended to proceed on the 29th, 011 their journey to the French capital. Gen. Count Wachmeister, Commander in Chief of our army of the coast, has sent a report to his Majesty, bearing date the 25th ult. by which it ap- pears, that 011 the lftb, l^ lli, and 20th ult. our ar- my was engaged with the eneinv near Djekneboda, Sasvar, and Hata. Our troops behaved with the ut- most gallantry in all these engagements, but sustained very considerable loss, and were at length compelled, by the enemy's vast superiority of numbers, to re- em bark. Of the state of owr negociations for peace, nothing the course of his Mayoralty, lie should have to an- transpires; but we hope that we shall soon be at nouuee to them the news of a glorious aud honourable I peace, not only with Russia, but also with Denmark ELECTION OF LORD MAYOR. On Friday there was a Common Hall, held al Guildhall, for the purpose of electing a Chief Ma- gistrate- for the ensuing year. The Lord Mayor, Aldermen, and. Sheriffs, came from attending divine service, in the church of St. Liiwrence, to Guildhall. On their appearance on the Hustings, Aldermen Sir W. Curtis and Sir J. Shaw, met severe and re- peated marks of disapprobation; as did the Lord Mayor in a smaller degree; while the rest were loudly applauded, particularly Aldermen Combe, Wood, Sc oley, and Domville. The business of the Court was opened by the Recorder, who was followed in a further short explanation by the Common Ser- jeant. The names of the several Aldermen who llad passed the Shrievalty were then proposed ; on each of which, respectively, the Livery exercised their annual privi- lege of expressing their sentiments by hissing or ap- plauding. The name of Sir Matthew Bloxham seemed rather to excite sentiments of pleasantry, for it was immediately followed by a general laugh. It was at length declared, that the majority was in favour of Thomas Smith, Esq, leather- seller and Al- derman ; aud Joshua Jonathan Smith, Esq. Alder- man aud ironmonger, and one of the present Sheriffs. The Lord Mayor aud Board ot Aldermen retired lo their chamber, for the purpose of selecting one front these two; and in about half an hour returned, and declared in favour of Thomas Smith, Esq. That Gen- tleman came forw ard, and iu a short but appropriate speech, expressed his thanks to his fellow- citizens for this new mark of their approbation. The worthy Ma- gistrate said, that his first object should he to protect the rights and privileges of his fellow- citizens. Aware of the multiplicity of business attached to the arduous office to w hich he had been called, he would observe the strictest punctuality in his attendance, as well as zeal and impartiality m the exercise of the various duties of his situation. lie had had the happiness* to live among them, with the greatest harmony and friendship, for upwards of forty years; and he owed his advancement to their unsolicited liberality. He had recently, when Sheriff, been honoured with their high approbation of his services; and he hoped to be equally fortunate in the dignified station to which they had now done him the honour to appoint him. If in SPANISH PAPERS SEVILLE, SEPT. 6".— The Madrid Gazette, re- ceived here, contains various decrees by the Usurper. One of these suppresses all the Monastic Orders. in Spain, assigning only a small pension for life to the individuals composing them. The Archbishops and Bishops are also put on the pension- list, and their » jr « jperty sequestrated for the use of the State. Ano- ther decree annuls all titles of Nobility not conferred or confirmed by the Usurper. Such is the condition of Spain; and such will ever be the fate of those un- happy countries that become subject to the atrocious and tyrannical dominion of the French. Note hy the Editor of the Seville Gazette. [ This exactly corresponds with the opinion which we long since formed, respecting the Government of the Usurper, as may be seen in an Essay which we published upon this subject. The French Govern- ment is not carrying on an ordinary war. Its object is, to destroy Religion, Property, Nobility— every thing, in short, which constitutes the bands of socuj order. We are placed in the same relation with . them as with beasts of prey; we must destroy them, or pe- rish ourselves.] SRI'T. 6.— It appears by reports transmitted by Ihe superior Provincial Junta of Arragon, that the batta- lion commanded by Don Roman Gayon lately at- tacked the enemy, who occupied Paniza, with a force of 300 men. Our gallant countrymen opened their lire upon the French, who withstood it for half an hour, and then took to a disgraceful flight; leaving the conquerors in possession of the greatest part of their baggage. The Supreme Committee of the Royal and distin- guished Spanish Order of Charles III. have unani- mously voted 10,000 ducats of the money lately re- ceived from America, to be applied to the support of the widows and orphans of that unconquerable place Gerona. General D'Agoult, the French Governor of Na- varre, having condemned four Spaniards to suffer death, oh a charge of their having murdered a French Serjeant, and given public notice of the execution of his- sanguinary order, Don Mariano Ramalier, Com- mander in Chief of the Spanish troops in the moun- tains of Arragon, for his Majesty Ferdinapd VII. has issued a Proclamation, in answer to the former, which contains the following articles:—• . I. Manuel Antonio Gruyer, Thomas. Periche Juan Beaubier, Francois DesuiX, and Auguste de la Colombiere, all agents of the French, shall be con- ducted by my troops fo the camp of Erigorria, and being placed in a position facing Madrid, looking to their king Pepe- Bottellas, ( Joe- Bottle) they shall hear the sentence of death pronounced; and being after- wards ordered to face Pamplona, they shall be be- . headed, and their bodies suspended from gibbets, on the road which leads to Madrid, with the following inscription on their backs:—" Agents of the French banditti, punished by Spanish justice." " II. Should the intruded King, Generals D'Agoult and Lomet ( who commanded in Jaca), or any other person, abuse his authority, or take away the life of any Spaniard, we shall order double the number of Frenchmen who are in our power to be beheaded.'' C Seville Gazette.) SEPT. 11.— The satisfacfory intelligence has been officially received, that a division of Blake's army, commanded by Don Jayme Gara, has succeeded in breaking the enemy's line, and entered Gerona with provisions and warlike stores for that admirable pla'ce. The generous movements of the inhabitants of the Pyrenees continue with unabated vigour and perse verance ; aud had not the important fortress of Java,- through cowardice, fallen into the enemy's hands. those gallant mountaineers, supported in their move- ments by that important place, and led on by the worthy Chief who commanded them, would, perhaps,- by this time have carried their victorious banners Id the banks of the Ebro and Navarre; and Arragon would have been a second time indebted to them for their liberty.—( Government Gazette, Sept. 12.) ALICANT, AUG. 29— By a ship, which on tlie 27 th of this month arrived here from Tarragona, in- telligence has been received that on the 13th and 14th of that month, 5,000 horse passed through that place for Gerona; and that positive information had' reached Tarragona, that provisions are very searcc at! Barcelona; that the enemy sustaius great losse* in his inroads into the country, and that the French troops' are in great distress. TARRAGONA, AUG. 17.— We learn from Calella, under date of the I2th, that ou the 10th, at two in' the afternoon, 300 men of the garrison of Monjuich, in Gerona, made a sally, took a battery of 10 guns, and destroyed it with a parapet.

All tbe villages containing 500 inhabitants are to contribute upon this occasion the sum of 1000 dollars in specie ; and those which exceed that number more in proportion. Fathers of families are to produce their sons, when called upon, or to be responsible for their absence. It is said, that in the late attack by the French upon Mequinenza, they were repulsed with great loss. VALENCIA, AUG. 27.— Persons employed by our Generals to procure information affirm, that the enemy have in the hospitals and convent of Madrid, about 12,000 sick and wounded. In consequence of tbe attack at Almonacid, no fewer than 8000 beds w ere put in requisition. LISBON, SKPT. 12.— A report was' yesterday in circulation, stating, that Marshal Soult had been completely defeated by the Marquis de la Romana; although 110 official continuation of this pleasing news has yet been received, yet several private letters from Spain affirm it to be true.

Mr. Frere had his audience of leave of the Supreme Junta on the 2- ltli ult. The Duke of Brunswick ( we arc told) lias received intelligence, by an Officer just arrived, that the Ar- mistice had been put an end to by the Austriaus; that the Prussian army, under General Blucher, had marched to co- operate with the Austrian forces; and that the King of Prussia had himself set oft' for Peters- burgh, to confer with. the Emperor Alexander. The intelligence of Peace having been signed be- tween Russia and Sweden cannot surprise any one.— The disposition to risk every thing rather than sub- mit to the invader, bad received its death- wound from the dethronement of tbe gallant Gustavus.— With one only of the terms of the Peace are we acquainted. The British are to be excluded from the ports of Sweden. This exclusion, so peremptorily insisted upon by Russia, sufficiently refutes all the rumours of her being inclined to take part against France. Fin- land, and probably the Island of Aland, are to be ceded to her. THE SUNDAY REPORTER. SUnDaY, October I, 1809. LONDON. PAPERS from Seville and Cadiz to the 13th inst. have been received. The Seville Gazettes report that Gerona, which emu ales Sarsgossa in the obstinacy of its defence, has been relieved. A division of General Blake's Army is said to have penetrated the enemy's line, and to have supplied the town with provisions aud ammuni- tion. The following extract will shew that an opinion prevailed, ( hat tbe exertions of the garrison, and of this brave General, bad been followed by the aban- donment of the enterprize of the enemy to reduce the fortress:— " Cadiz, Sept. 13. " The reports are, that the siege tit Gerona has been raised. The Spanish Annies are in motion.— Venegas has 2^' or 2^, 000 men in La Mancha. Our latest news from England is of the £ 8th, ult.; we are dark respecting the Armistice. " The Minorca sails this day with 20 sail for Eng- land." It is reported, that Barcelona is driven to great ex- remities. t According to some accounts in these Papers, it We understand that Lords Grey and Grenville have declined the offer of coalescing with the remnants of the late Administration ; expressing their conviction, tli it the exigencies of the comitry require a radical change both of men and measures. Only one of those Lords, however ( Lord Grenville), has as yel arrived in town; though tbe determination of both, as to tbe conditions proposed, we are told, was alike prompt and decisive. Lord Grenville was at Carlton- house as early as nine o'clock yesterday morning, and remained with the Prince for nearly two hours. Mr. Sheridan had afterwards a very long audience ofhis Royal Highness; and, in the course ofthe morning, the Prince also saw his Royal Brothers, the Dukes of Clarence and Cum- berland, and his Serene Highness the Duke of Brunswick. Yesterday Lord Grenville had a!? o conferences with Lord Holland, Mr. Tierney, and all the Mem bers of his late Administration now in town. Mr. Thomas Grenville has also arrived in town, and was yesterday at Camelford- house, the residence of Lord Grenville; whence it is said, that circular let- ters have been sent to the Duke of Norfolk, Earl of Moira, Earl Fitzwilliam, Lord Erskine, Lord Henry Petty, Mr. Wyndham, and all the Members of the former Administration. Letters were likewise dis- patched to the principal Members of both Houses of Parliament, who have usually voted with the late Mr. Fox or Lord Grenville. The following are the new commercial regulations adopted by Government:— Licences will be granted for tbe exportation to France of British manufactures and colonial produce; and also for the importation from the ports of France, of grain, corn, flour, meal, and burr- stones. The licences for exportation to tbe Dutch ports, are extended to tbe 2d day of October inclusive; so., as to allow time for vessels already parlly laden, to complete their cargoes for. the ports of their destination. As many of our Readers may be ignorant of the uses to which burr- stones are applicable,' it may tio1 be wholly useless to inform them, that they are the materials of which mill- stones are formed for grinding wheat. These art obtained front France exclusively; as no stone lias yet been discovered in this Island with be ground, although a large premium has for many years been offered by the Society of Arts for the blue- stones from Spain Were' wheat. These stoneS appear to be of volcanic orign, arc ex- tremely hard', quite honey- combed 011 the surface, with numerous small cavities, and When struck, are almost as sonorous as metal. Tbe Spanish stones are in one solid piece, ami by some old millers are yet in use ; bill the* superiority of French burrs is now so - generally admitted, that they are almost the only stones iu use. i'he mill- stones made from French burrs, are com- posed of a very considerable pieces, curiously united, and forming altogether the large mass, which, to the eye of the common observer, ap- peals to be one s did stone. The importation, not inly ofcorn, but of the materials by wliieo it can be reduced to flour, will, by posterity, be viewed as a curious fact, when it is considered to what a pitch agriculture, and the mechanic arts, have been carried in England. Circular iron plates, in the shape of mill- stones, have repeatedly been tried, but nothing yet discovered comes near the perfection in grinding obtained by the French stones. The order of the Danish Government for recalling their numerous privateers, we believe, was adopted inconsequence of ( he British Government consenting to the sending of provisions to Norway, which was reduced to the greatest distress by the vigilance of our cruizers. We understand, that Government has received of- ficial information of the conclusion of a peace be- tween Russia and Sweden; one of the conditions of which is, that all British ships are to be excluded from the ports of Sweden! We leam from the Swedish Papers, that a pacific mission from the Court of Stockhom sailed from Ysiadt on the 25th of August, and landed at Stral- sund 011 the 29th; whence the Deputies were to set out immediately on their journey to Paris. It is, however, probable they proceeded to Vienna.— The Swedes flat- ter themselves with a hope, that they shall soon be at peace with Denmark, as well as Russia. According to private letters from gottenburg, it appears that a report has again prevailed there, of a renewal of hostilities between France and Austria: indeed, it is pretended that a battle has actually taken place, and that the French have sustained a de- feat!— We put 110 confidence in this statement. The following is an extract of a 1 tter from Malta, dated August 18:—" I have only time to tell you, that we yesterday receiveetl letters from Fiume of the 5th instant, d< wn to which date the French had not made their appearance, nor were they expected. The Armistice was to expire on the 13th; aud it was ge- nerally believed that hostilities would recommence; as immense levies had been directed to be made, in- cluding all men capable of bearing arn s, up to ( he age of 45. I( is added, that the same measures have been adopted throughout France and Italy." Mr. Denon, the well- known writer of " Travels through Egypt,'' has lately been entrusted by Buon- aparte with a considerable sum of money, to: be equally divided among the authors of twelve paint- ings of large dimensions, on the following given sub- jects :— 1st, Buonaparte addressing the Bavarians be- fore the battle of Abersberg ; 2d, The attack of tlie bridge at ratisbon ; 3d, The capture of Ratisbon ; 4th, The attack of the bridge at Landshut; 51 h, The bombardment of Vienna; 6' th, The attack of the bridge at Ebersburg ; 7th, Battia of Wagram ; 8th, the French Emperor's bivouac on the field of Wa- grani during the night of the 5th and 6th of July ; 9th, A view of the Island Napoleon ( Inder Lobau) at the time when his Imperial Majesty re- entered it after the battle of Esling ; 10th, A second view of the same Island when Napoleon embraces Marshal Lasnes, mortally wounded in that battle; 11th, A view of Ebersdorf, and the bridges over the Da- nube; 12th, A view of the gardens of the Palace of Schoenbrunn. A small number of marble busts, and, among others, one of Marshal Lasnes will also be executed by skilful French sculptors. The Cornwallis transport, Capt. R. Storey, has brought house the following Officers from Lord Wel- lington's army:— Lieut. George Fitz- Clarence, of the 10th ; colonel Saunders, of the 61st; Lieutc- nant- Col. Heneber, Hon. Capt. Irby, Col. Tayler, and Lieut Powell. Dispatches received by Government from Corun- na, dated September lp, state, ( hat the French are preparing to lay siege to Ciudad Rodrigo. The Mar- quis de Romana's army, about 25,000 strong, is marching to the relief of the place. Lord Welling- ton, it is understood, means also to march to its re-, lief. On the 30th ult. Romana's army was at Al- camocis, to the Northward of Ciudad Rodrigo. We may therefore expect soon to hear of important ope- rations. By the last conveyance the following' particulars re- specting Lord Wellington's army were received:— " The army are hulled.

Advices have beeu received from Surinam. This Colony, which is capable of being one of tha most valuable on tiie immense Continent to which it. be- longs, has not only suffered greatly from neglect, but recently from natural causes. This, low country, partaking much of the humid character of that of its late masters, has been laid waste by inundations.— Cotton was as high as 2s. 4' i. per. lb. in consequence of the destruction this calamity had occasioned. The officers on the Madras establishment, who are to be sent home, for circulating a remonstrance among the officers of the army agaiust the act of Govern- ment, in removing the late Commander in Chief from the service, are, Colonel St. Leger, Majors Boles aud de Morgan, and. Captains Marshall and Grant. It appears that Sir John Cradock, when Comman- der in Chief of the Madras Establishment, having in view some economical reforms, addressed a private and confidential- letter to Lieut. Colonel John Munro, Quarter- Master- General, requiring his opinion con- cerning a subsisting contract, by virtue of which tents were furnished by Officers commanding native corps. Col. Munro, in compliance with this order, presented a Report counselling the annulling of the contract; and the suggestions of the Quarter- Master- General were acted upon by the Governor. The Report in the mean while had been deposited in the Secret De- partment of Government, and was concealed from the public till the arrival of Sir George Barlow as Go- vernor, into whose hands the Papers fell. lie imme- diately imparted them to Adj.- Gen. Lieut. Col. Cap- per, considering them of a public nature, and the Adju- tant- General did not hesitate to give them publicity. The allegations contained iu the Report were now considered as an unjust reflexion upon the Officers of the native corps ; and unworthy motives were ascribed to the Quarter- Master- General, as having iu view the procuring of the contract for himself. The following are the names of the missing ships in the two last fleets from the Leeward Islands and Jamaica:—- For London : Peggy, Smith, from Antigua; and Eden, Penrice, from Grenada, parled convoy 29th August; Bellona, Thompson, and Ann, James, from Jamaica.

The Francis Freeling packet, with mails from Ja- maica, arrived at Falmouth in 40 days, has on board 14 passengers and 250,000 dollars. On Tuesday the 12th instant, a skiff belonging to Ulysses Hughes, Esq. a Lieutenant in the Royal Navy, of Grovesend, near Swansea, in which lie had pro- ceeded to Bristol, and was 011 his return with a quan- tity of household furniture, was picked up by the Per- severance, of Newport, naer the mouth ot Bridgewa- ter river, and towed iuto Burnham shore. Her side was beaten out, and Mr. Hughes, with two men he had engaged for the trip, perished. A boy, who was also on board, saved his life by swimming to the shore. We have American Papers of the date of August 20, and letters to the 22d. It was stated in a Paper of yesterday, that Mr. Jackson had reached Wash- ington, where he was favourably received ; but this cannot be true; for the ship in which Mr. Jackson sailed was spoken v\ itb at sea, so late as the 20th of August, by the vessel which brought the, letters and papers.

A letter from. Middleburg, dated Sept. 17, says, " That fine corps the 5th has only one Major, eight subalterns, and 300 rank and file fit for duty. The Soth are in a similar state. The 6 th cannot mount a corporal's guard, 700 being sick. The 23d are hors de Combat, ihe Colonel has uot even a ser- vant. The Royals, after all their fatigue, are the strongest corps in the Island." Mr. Aveling, Deputy- Inspector of Hospitals, has fallen a sacrifice to the raging epidemic; and we learn, that Mr. Webb, Chief- Inspector of Hospitals, has been obliged to return to this country, reduced to the utmost state of danger from the climate of Walcheren, aud the excessive fatigue of duty. Advice iias been received in town, of the death of Lieutenants Steel and Humbly, of the 66th regiment, These officers were returned severely wounded in the battle of Talavera. The Medical Report from Walcheren is— Died last week 375 men, and 5 officers— Remain in the Hos- pitals 8600. With regard to the conduct of the late Expedi- tion, which is supposed to have led to the dissolution of the Administration, it appears evident, from the favourable reception of the Earl of Chatham at Court, and from his presence at all the Cabinet Councils held since his arrival from Walcheren, that he neither considers himself, nor is considered by his colleagues or his Sovereign, as responsible for the failure of the Expedition. It is said, he justifies himself bodly, by saying ( and. it is added with the concurrence of all the other General Officers), that the plan of the enterprise was founded on a gross misconception of the impediments and opposition that were to be encountered, the nature and amount of which were such as to preclude every prospect of success beyond the capture of the Islands. The Earl of Liverpool lias transacted the business of the three Secretaries of State, since the duel be- tween Lord Castlereagh and Mr. Canning. Notwithstanding all reports to the contrary, we do not believe that the ensuing Parliament will vote a monument to be erected 011 the spot where the late ministerial duel was fought; nor that there is any intention to create Mr. Canning a Peer, for his bravery in that memorable action ! It has often been said, that the Duke of Port- land's Cabinet- dinners were the best parts of" his Ad- ministration.— Such was the quality or quantity of his wines, that we find two of his guests obliged to ask liini to remind them if what passed at his table ! Il is said, that Mr. Perceval has proposed to keep in seven of his own friends, and to let Lord Grenville and Lord Grey bring in six of theirs. John Bull thinks that the Cabinet has been at sixes and sevens long enough already. A considerable proportion of the visitors at Mar- gate complain bitterly of the adverse weather. They are afraid to return by sea; and have stayed so long, that it is somewhat inconvenient to return by land! It is understood to be the intention of Mr. Wardle to have his prosecution against Mrs. Clarke and the Wrights moved, by the ordinary process, from Hicks's. Hall to the Court of King's Bench. The Reading Volunteers have been lately disband- ed, iu consequence of alleged misbehaviour of some of the privates, when not on duty, on the 5th of June last. A young man from the country having engaged in a mercantile house, some of the cierks, taking advan- tage of his simplicity, gave him a bill, among others, upon Striker and Co. iu Fleet- street. His patience was nearly exhausted in ei. deavouring to find Out this unknown firm; nor was he aware of the hoax till a grave bv- stauder seriously assured him there were 110 such perfons as Striker und Co. in Fleet- street, ex- cepting the two images thai strike the hours at St. Dunstan's Church. When Beverley, the Manager of Richmond Thea- tre, was declaring the receipts ol his Theatre to be under his expences, on the 1st night of Mrs. Siddon's performance, an Hibernian Actor, who wat present, exclaimed, " If your account be true, Manager," you have gained a loss !" Mr. Smart, jeweller, of Prince's- street, Leicester- square, was some few days ago defrauded of. 15 gui- neas worth of jewellery, by a genteel looking man, and, we understand of good family. Having been in the habit of coming to the shop for a twelve- monib past, and at times purchasing various arti- cles, Mr. Smart was induced to let him have the ar- ticles, to shew, as he pretended, to a person wbo wanted them ; at the same time promising to return with the money or goods in two hours ; but he did not come back.— In consequence of posted bills, Mr. Smart found him at a public- house, in Maidenhead- court, Berwick- street, when he seized the fellow, who was rescued by some of his companions; and 011 Wednesday the principal part of the goods were re- turned by a'stranger. Tuesday evening, as a North country woman, who; had arrived by a stage, at the Saracen's Head, Snow- hill, was carrying her trunk along Fleet- street, a-, fellow offered to carry it for her for 6' d.; but he had not gone with Injr above 200 yards, when he con- trived to give her the slip, and got clear off with his booty. A more wanton act of barbarity we never remember lo have heard of, than was committed 011 Saturday last: Mr. L- , of Brighton, in Northamptonshire, having consigned the management of his farm to his nephew, a young man of an irritable disposition, he quarrelled with one of the plough- bays, whom be tied to the tail of a cart and flogged unmercifully. The lad, remonstrating against the treatment he had received, brought upon him farther and more severe punishment. His inhuman master next fastened him to the tail of one of the cart- horses, then giving the animal a cut with his whip, he sprung forward, and, finding an incumbrance behind, kicked to get rid of it; and hitting the poor boy iu the stomach, he im- mediately expired. The body was taken to a public- house in the fieighbourhood, for a Coroner's Inquest to be taken upon it. The farmer was immediately arrested and conveyed to Northampton jail.- AFFECTING OCCURRENCE.—- The following or,- curience took place during the, disastrous retreat of General Moore's army from Spain last year. An Officer of one of the British regiments, overcome with fatigue and hunger, and 110 longer able to keep up with his companions, had dropped behind. Heespied a tuft of trees in a field adjoining the road, towards . which he crawled,. with the view of resting his weary limbs, secure from the sabres of the pursuing enemy. O11 bis coming near to the trees, he perceived a wo- - man, seemingly a soldier's wife, stretched upon the ground, and a little infant lying, near her. He ap- proached to administer such assistance as was iu his pow er. It was too late; the hand of death was upon her, and she w as scarcely able to utter these words- God bless you, it is all over," when she expired. • The officer sat down beside her; he felt her hand, it was clay cold ; he had nothing to succour her with ; a brook was near, he filled his hat with water, and besprinkled her face and hands: all was in vain, and he was convinced she was utterly gone. Having rested himself so as to be able again to go 011, he tied the little, infant ill the poor woman's handkerchief, and having fastened it to his back, he pursued his march; in. this condition, procuring what sustenance he, could for himself and the little orphan, he at last, after a long and wretched jour- ney, readied the port of Vigo, which at that time happened to be unoccupied by the • French ; there he got on board of a transport, and reached, at last England with his little charge. His regiment ( or ra - ther the remnant of it) had arrived before him, and be joined it, still accompanied by the infant.*— He has it ( t is a boy) always with him, and has one of the women of the regiment to nurse it; and he declares, that this litlle orphan, whom Heaven threw upon his protection, shall, let his future, fortune through life be good or bad, share it with him. ELOPEMENT.— An elopement of an extraordinary nature took place ou Wednesday . morning from Ken- sington. The parties were a Miss S , aged 23, of considerable fortune, and a corporal of light dragoons. They were met the same morning at Chelsea, and were overtaken at Tenterden, near Maidstone ; when the lady was brought back, after bestowing seven guineas on her inamorato in pre- sence of her pursuers, FIRES.— On Tuesday evening, between five and six o'clock, a fire broke out in a back kitchen, belong- ing to Mr. Hillyer, of Mark- lane, which communi- cated to the back- parlour of Mr. Hartshorn, at the corner of the lane. By the prompt attendance of the engines, however, ihe fire was prevented from doing much more damage than the destruction of the two room;, and their contents.— On the same evening there was a slight fire at the house of Mr. Dadley, a pew terer, in Shoe- lane. And on the same night, the neighbourhood of Wild- court and Little .. Wild- street was throw 11 into great consternation by. the appearance of the suddenly bursting forth from one of the old houses in that, quarter; but happily this was alio' ex- tinguished, without any very serious injury. 3 26 SUNDAY REPORTER. OCT. I. MONTHLY REPORT FOR SEPTEMBER. The Wheats in some counties have risen rather thinner to the sickle than, from their appearance, they were expected to do; but they are heavy in hand, from the Corn being large and fine, except in a few partial spots where they were affected by the mildew. The barleys are more than average crop, but have been a good ileal injured by the suueessive rains.— Where lltey were thrown down by the showers of last month, they have been hedge- grown, which al- ways render 1 hem more difficult lo harvest well when the weather is not. bright. The Oats are a good crop, and will be very pro- ductive, al'.' iotfgh much of the grain has fallen out of the ear, and in some places has been ploughed in, to stand for a crop next year. The Beans, Peas, and ail the leguminous tribe, will be more than an average crop ; but those that do not. throw off the leaf, have been considerably in- jured by the continued rains and cloudy weather. Turnips, and all the brassica species, are very abundant. Potatoes rise a large crop, aud free from rand. The aftermaths, both of Clover anjl natural Grasses, are very large, and will produce an abun- dance of autumn feed, as the weather has prevent- ed them from being mown for latter hay.

There is no change in Gentlemen's dresses, INDIA HOUSE._ At the Quarterly General Court held at the East India House on Wednesday, Mr. Henriott, adverting to the complaints which had been made in a former General Court, asked whether any information hatl been received by the Court of Directors relative lo the protection ofthe commerce in the Indian seas. • The Chairman expressed bis obligations to- the Hon. Proprietor for calling the attention ofthe Court to the subject. After what had passed at a precedin Court, it became, perhaps, the duty of tbe Chair to lake further notice of Ihe subject,. At that time the & ourt were totally uninformed. They possessed no documents, and only oue side of the' question was — a matter to be regretted, where the. character of public and professional. n> cn were concerned. The subject bad uot been brought under the cognizance ofthe Directors by either party; but the complaints having originated in the General Court, it war but fair it should hear the defence also. Documents had been received since tbe question was agitated, the substance of which was as follows, viz. that Sir I- Pullew, previous to his knowledge of the memorial against him from tbe Bengal Merchants to the Lords of the Admiralty, had stated to tbe Bengal Gover; meut, that lie bad always been of opinion, the only ef- fectual protection of the trade was the establishment of regular convoys; that he bad early stated this to the Bengal Merchants, and offered to make an arrange- ment for tegular convoys, but tbey preferred, for the sake of an early market, to run as single ships; and, for the same reason, w hen under convoy broke from their convoy; that in the months of August, Septem- ber, October, and November, 1S07, w hen the Bengal Merchants state that their trade was left wholly with out defence, and many of his Majesty's ships lying i in Madras Roads, there were fifteen sail in differ.- 1. parts of the Bay for the protection of t! e trade, be- sides other ships continually intersecting the Bay. more, from repairs and necessary services, could not be afforded; that the Bengal Government, in their letter to tbe Court of Diiectors, express entire conviction that every attention has been paid by Sir Edward Pellew to the protection of tbe Bay of Ben- gal against tbe enemy's cruizers, consistent with a due attention to the exigencies of the public service; that the Memorial against the conduct of Sir Edward Pel- lew by the Bengal Merchants was forwarded to those of Bombay for signatures, and there unanimously re- jected ; that the Bombay Merchants solicited and in- variably received regular convoy for their trade, and the only instance of capture which occurred was when ships had deserted convoy; that had the Bengal Mer- chants accepted a similar scheme of protection, their property would have been equally secured— a scheme which however they had finally adopted. " The Chair- man then represented, that the Bombay Consultation of lhat period had not been received ; but he had seen Resolutions of the Merchants of Bombay, with an Address to Sir Edward Pellew, dated the 19th of May, 1808, with about eighty signatures, illustrating, in the strongest manner, the anxious attention of Sir Edward to the security of the trade, and the complete success of the measures adopted by him ; also that Sir Edward Pellew first suggested the system of regular convoys, the immediate effect of which was a de- crease of 50 per cent, on premiums of insurance. The Chairman concluded with producing a letter address- ed to him from Mr. Parry, the late Chairman, stat- ing, that he, as well as other Proprietors, when the subject was introduced in the General Court, was forcibly impressed with an opinion that blame must be imputable somewhere, and had expressed himself to that effect; but his information of various official do- cuments having been received since he left the Chair, had changed lus opinion, and made him regret that only one side of the question had been heard in the General Court; he therefore requests that the Chair- man will take a convenient opportunity of reporting his sentiments to the Proprietors; and at the same time correct a Report of his Speech in the Newspa- pers at the General Court before mentioned, wherein lie is stated to have asserted, in addition to some ob servations ou the general subject, that the Naval Commander in Chief was recalled. If he used any words that could warrant or countenancc such a statement in the Report, it was matter of additional regret to him, fceiiug, as he does, how much it is due to public men that tbeir character should be subject to no unfounded imputation ; but assuredly he could mean no more than that Sir Edward Pellew was, in tbe usual rotation of command, on the way home; for no information had been received that he was recall- ed, and he had siuco learnt that the fact was directly otherwise; that he had himseif, some time before, ap- plied for leave to return, 011 account of his health and that, after some delay, this permission was given him, 011 the ground of his own request. Mr. henriott returned his acknowledgments for an explanation which afforded him very great satisfac- tion. On the question being put, the Court adjourned sine die. m. COvENT- GARDEN THEATRE. The confusion at this Theatre terminated on Sa- turday last, by Mr. Kemble's announcing to the au- dience the intention of the Proprietors to submit their accouuts to the investigation of a Committee, and till their report was made public, the Theatre would be shut. The Committee for examining the affairs of Covent- Garden Theatre; consisting of the following Gentle- men':— Alderman Sir Charles Price, Bart. M. P. the Right Hon. Solicitor- General, the Recorder of the City of London, the Governor of the Bank of England, ai. d John Julius Angerstein, Esq. met, and dedicated the whole of Thursday to the examination ofthe Treasury books, and vouchers of the receipt and ex- penditure of the old Theatre, for the last six years, being tl; e term during which the concern has belong- ed to the present Proprietors. From the inspection of the accounts arises, we understand, a clear de- monstration that the Proprietors have not made above s x and a quarter per cent, on their capital; and that if the whole of the property had been in sured, as it ought to have been, they would have made very little more than five. . We hear that these most respectable Gentlemen met again yesterday, and 011 Monday next, to go into the consideration of tbe ad- ditional incumbrances and expences incurred by the erection of the new Theatre. The result of tile in- quiry nmfle by these Gentlemen, with the accounts, & c. will- be laid fully'before the Public. OLD BAILEY. Monday 17 prisoners were tried; four of whom were capitally convicted, viz. Robert Jefferson, for ' stealing 25 yards of vel- veteen, the property of Messrs. Ash and Smith, in their dwelling- house.— Death. John Briant was indicted for assaulting G. Smith, a cork- cutter, with intent to murder him, by cutting his throat, at the Crown, in Chick lane. In defence, the prisoner, who is 6' I years of age, stated, that he was inebriated and had fallen asleep in the house, during which he had been robbed of some knives and some half- pence; and he snspected the prosecutor, who sat next to him, had been trifling with him, which, added to his intoxication, was tbe cause of lii » rash conduct.— Guilty— Death. Yesterday Cornelius Sullivan, and Dennis Fitzge- rald, were capitally indicted, the former for violating, and the latter for having been aiding and assisting in the commission of the said crime, the person of Eliza- beth, wife of Thomas Walter, at Poplar, 011 Saturday night the l6' th instant. Iu defence, several labourers about Poplar at tempt- ed to disprove the statement of the injured woman, by swearing that she was drunk with the prisoners in a public- house, aud had bargained to accept money of them. The prevarication, however, was so evident, that the Jury did not believe one word of it; as it had been proved, that the prosecutrix was quite sober. Guilty.— Dec t It.— Haggerty, one of these witnesses, was committed for perjury. Tuesday ." 3 prisoners were tried, two of whom were capitally convicted, viz. Mary Smith and John Brown, for stealing 36 yards of ribbon, the property of G. Gibbs, privately in his shop. Mary Bristow, a miserable object, was indicted for stealing privately in the dwelling house of. Robert Ingram, Shakespear- walk, Shadwell, a silver watch, and a silk handkerchief, his property. It appeared from the evidence, that the prisoner had gone into the house to ask for a draught of wa- ter ; and while the prosecutor's daughter went for it, the prisoner stole tiie articles stated, and they were found 011 her person. The Jury found her Guilty of stealing to the va- lue of 39s. which obviates the capital part of the crime. John Wood was indicted for feloniously embezzling sundry sums of money, which he, as a confidential clerk and servant, received for the account of his employer, William Smith, livery stable- keeper, in Curzon- street, May- fair. It appeared from the evidence of Mr. Smith, that the prisoner had been some years in his service; and that of late, from the general tardiness in which his service; and that of late, from the general tardiness in which his bills were collected, he had some sus- picion of his dishonesty. He therefore, at a venture, charged him with not having accounted for the mo- nies he received. Tbe prisoner at that time made no observation in answer; but ou Mr. Smith's saying he would employ an attorney to enforce payment, he made several pretences to dissuade linn; alleging that the money was all safe, and that one Gentleman had gone to Portugal. In a short time afterwards the Prisoner absconded, and, the day following, sent his employer a list of the debts he had collected, and had not accounted for, amounting to near 6' 00l. On examination, however, Mr. Smith found he had not specified various other sums be had received; and particularly the bill of a Mr. Angelo, for ifil. 10s.; and that altogether the prisoner had embezzled twelve or thirteen hundred pounds. The prosecu- tor, however, was founded upon the 16" I. 10s. the payment of which Mr. Angelo proved, and produced the prisoner's receipt for it. The Jury found the prisoner Guilty. William Warren was convicted of picking the pocket of Mr. John Jacob Batiere, of a snuff- box, on Thursday evening last, iu the Strand, near Essex- street. W. Bland was indicted for stealing a quantity of books, the property of a bookseller, in Fleet- street. The defence of the prisoner was rather inconsistent; he stated that he had been tried for the same offence, seventy years ago ; and, on being asked by the Re- corder what his age was, he said he was an hundred and sixty years old. He was found Guilty, and the Recorder said he should be taken care of. Thursday, July 28. James Hewit, an old man near 60 years of age, was indicted for a misdemeanor, in having in the month of August last, contrary to an Act passed in the reign of George II. seduced an artificer of this country to leave the kingdom. From the testimony of the witnesses examined, it appeared that the prisoner, although recently from America, is an Englishman, aud had lately frequent- ed a publick- house called the York Minster, imme OCT. 1. SUNDAY REPORTER- 325 diately in the vicinity of the cotton manufactory of Messrs. Hughes aud Lewis, Bunhill- row; to which the men employed in the service of Messrs. Hughes and Lewis usually resorted; and amongst others a man named Hutchinson, who had been formerly ap- prenticed from the parish of St. Martin's, to a cotton manufactory near Manchester, where he remained till he arrived at the age of 21. He then came to Loudon, and was employed in the service of Messrs. hughes and Co. in the wool- dying business, aud was in tact returned a fair workman. This man the pri- soner frequently met, and by glowing representations of the advantages and great wages he was likely to obtain by going to America, induced him to agree to emigrate, for the purpose of being etnployetl in a cottou manufactory, at a place called Cooper's Town, within two miles of New York, and a short distance from the residence of the Prisoner. Messrs. Hughes and Lewis, having heard of this negociation, sent for the prisoner, and remonstrated with him on the illegality of the steps he was pursu- ing, fore- warning him at the same time, that if he persisted in his delinquency, they would punish him witli the rigour of the taw. The Prisoner then de- clared his ignorance of any criminality attaching to his conduct, and promised most faithfully that he would relinquish his intentions. Iu a few days, how- ever, Mr. Hughes discovered that Hutchinson was making preparations for his departure, and that his passage had actually been taken on board an Ameri- can ship. The Prisoner was then apprehended, and on being brought before a Magistrate, produced a receipt tor 121 dollars, paid by him to the mate of an American ship for Hutchinson's passage, and also a promissary note of Hutchinson's for that sum, and lor other monies which had been advanced to him by the Prisoner, to be paid out of the produce of his la- bours in America. The Prisoner's defence then was, that Hutchinson came a second time to him, and said he had had his master's permission to leave the country, and that from his solicitations, he was in- duced to pay his passage out. The Common Serjeant, who tried the case, in sum- ming up the evidence, dwelt with peculiar force on the mischievous tendency of the crime with which the Prisoner stood charged, which, he said, was most ma- terially connected with the manufacturing interests of this country ; and was deservedly punished by law in a most exemplary manner; the Legislature having decreed, that persons, convicted ot such an offence, should be subject to twelve months imprisonment, and to a penalty of 5001. The Jury, without a moment's hesitation, returned a verdict at Guilty. Hutchinson, the artificer seduced, was then tried under an Act, passed in the 5th of George the First, which enacts, That any artificer, particularly in the manufactures of cotton, wool, silk, mohair, & c. who shall be convicted of, or detected in, preparing to leave the kingdom, for the purpose of devoting his knowledge for the benefit and advantage of foreign countries, not within the British Dominions, should be bound to enter into recoguizances himself, aad two sureties, for remaining in the country. The evidence in the former case was again gone through, and the Prisoner was found Guilty. Sarah Plomer was convicted of stealing sundry ar- ticles of wearing apparel, the property of Mary Shep- herd, in whose house she was a lodger. Sarah Martin, a decrepid old woman, 6' 5 years of age, was likewise convicted of stealing 20 yards of printed calico, from the shop of a linen- draper, in Tottenham- court- road. The trials having been concluded, the Recorder passed the awful sentence of death upon the follow- ing convicts:— Robert Wilson, and Thomas Simpson, for house- breaking— John Devine, for horse- stealing— John Sexton, for feloniously stealing in a dwelling- house William Sheppard, for forgery— John Briant, for cutting aud maiming— Richard Oakden, for an un- natural crime— Susannah Beeson, for house- break ing— Mary Tyler, aged 13, for horse- stealing-— Anne Campbell, for stealing in a dwelling- house— Anne Kennington, and Matilda Dyer, for liighway- robbery— Robert Arnott, for house- breaking in the d iy- time— Thomas Mayne, for horse- stealing— Thomas Rhodes, a servant at the Post- Office, for secreting a letter and embezzling Bank notes— Ro- bert Jefferson, for stealing in a dwelling- house— Cornelias Sullivan and Dennis Fitzgerald, for a rape — and Jane Browne and Mary Smith, for stealing privately in a shop. ASSAULT AT WORTHING. Mr. Barrett again appeared at Marlborough- street Oi ce on Thursday, to answer the charge exhibited at inst him by Miss Latham; but at half- past one, Miss Latham not appearing, nor any person for her, to follow up the prosecution— Mr. Neve addressed Mr. Barrett, and observed, " he felt extremely concerned, that his official situ- ation required of him to demand that attendance, for the purpose of rebutting a charge, the fallacy of which he was long since persuaded of. The convic- tion of Mr. Barrett's innocence of the enormous of- fence was now, if possible, heightened, by the pro- secutrix not appearing. Under this conviction, Mr. Barrett's attendance at that Office was no longer ne eessary, and his bail were discharged from their sureties." Mr. Alley stated, that he would not be doing his duty if he did not express the gratitude of his client for the mild treatment he had recei- ed from the worthy Magistrate during this most disgraceful trans- action. On the part of Mr. Barrett, he had to re- turn his thanks. Although all the Municipal Benches did credit to themselves, and honour to their coun- try; yet Mr. Barrett might have met different treat- ment, and have been participating in all the horrors of a prison, upon the presumptive evidence of this unfor- tunate young lady. He wished that she had come for- ward this day, and had made the only recompence in her power, by shewing her contrition, aud acknowledging, that she was mistaken in the person of Mr. Barrett; but, as she had not thought proper to do this, he trusted the worthy Magistrate would furnish him with a transcript of the deposition taken on the first examination; so that Sergeant Best, when he arrived iu town, and himself, if they thought it klviseable, might prefer an indictment for perjury, of which that would form the ground. Mr. Neve observed, that the rules of the Office did not admit of such an accommodation. It was com- petent for the accusing party to subpoena the Magis- trate on the trial, to attest the statement of the young Lady before him, which would answer all the ends of justice. He, therefore, declined acceding to the re- quest of the Learned Counsel. Mr. Alley acknowledged that the authorities of the Court of King's Bench were along with the worthy Magistrate; and he again expiessed his client's grati tude for the humanity and politeness which had been shewn to him. Mr. Neve then observed, will) respect to his motive for desiring another attendance of the parties at the Office, that it was in consequeuce of some informa- tion brought from Worthing by an Officer of the name of Craig, landing to throw some, light upon this mys- terious transaction; the substance of which was, that he had learnt, from the ostler of the White Hart Li- very stables, tliat Mr. Barrett had left his horse there on the 7th of July, and that the ostler returned the horse to Mr. Barrett on the 10th, and saw him mount him. Also, that the postman had met Mr. and Mrs. Barrett walking together on the morning of the 9th of July, at Worthing. These Were circumstances so far corroborative of Miss Latham's account of the appearance of Mr. Barrett ou the 10th of July, that he, Mr. Neve, thought it necessary to obtain auother examination, and interrogate the postman and ostler; but their evidence was so far from being as repre- sented, that the ostler could not identify Mr. Bar- rett's person; and the postman was uncertain, w he- tlier it was Sunday the 2d, or Sunday the 9th of July, that he met Mr. and Mrs. Barrett walking together. It was in consequence, therefore, of this imperfect- tiess in the corroboration of the prosecutrix's story, joined to the additional proof of the alibi produced by Mr. Barrett, that he was induced to dismiss at once all doubts of his innocence. mr. Barrett was accordingly discharged. INUNDATION. CARLISLE, SEPT. 23.— We have ty record one of the most destructive inundations which ever oc- curred in this part of the country. Owing to severe and incessant rain on Monday, the rivers which environ Carlisle, the Eden, the Cul- dew, and the Peterill, on Tuesday morning over- sowed their banks, and presented a vast and magni- ficent sheet of water, beautifully spotted with little islands and clumps of trees. Happy would we be were the grandeur of the scene the only circumstance worthy of remark; unfortunately the painful duty remains of noticing the destruction and catastrophe occasioned by the sudden swell. Though the Eden and Peterell were not deficient in mischief, by far the largest proportion of damage was effected by the Caldew ; whose mountain torrent, hurrying aiong a continued declivity, scarcely gave warn ng of its approach. By tho3e persons in and near Caldewgate, who saw the flood descending in its fury ( which was between the hours of five and six iu the morning), it is represented as resembling some mighty tide, rolling forward with amazing rapidity. In Shaddongate, Caldewgate, and by the Damside, the houses were inundated to the depth of three, four, and even six feet. Furniture of every description was carried away; and a house ou tlie margin of ihe' river, inhabited by two families, was washed lown, scarcely a minute after they had much', a precipitate rerreat/ Part of their property was afterwards reco- vered, it having been cast upon the shore about three miles below. It was lamentable lo view the immense quantities of grain which Wet driven down by the current: at one lime the liver presented the singular appearance of an immense moving field of corn. A small part was recovered by means of drags, but it is supposed that some hundred thousand of sheaves have been en- tirely lost. Timber trees, hedges, & c. were all car- ried away in one promiscuous ruin ; stone walls were levelled, and the ground stripped of its soil. A re- markable instance of the latter occurred at Seberg* ham ; in a field of potatoes, containing . ibout one acre, not only the roots, but every particle of soil was swept away ! so that what was formerly fertile land, is now a barren bed of gravel. At the same place, the woollen manufactory of Mr. Saul, with ihe machinery, & c. was entirely swept away. Se- bergham Bridge shared the same fate. The bridges at Hawkesdale, Hesket, Whelpa, and over the river Ellen, near Maryport. have been likewise destroyed. The following accidents, we are sorry to state, have come to our knowledge :— At the time the arches of the last- mentioned bridge gave way, a boy was pass- ing on horse- back ; he unfortunately perished, but the horse ' escaped unhurt. The river Waver being greatly swollen, Ihe house of an old woman of the name of Mary Calvert, at Field- End, near Wood- row, was surrounded by water: the helpless situa- tion of the poor creature exciting the fears of the neighbours, as soon as it was practicable, her condi- tion was attended to, when she was discovered in her bed, a lifeless corpse : and on Monday night, near the same place, Ihe driver of a post- chaise be, longing to an innkeeper in Wigton, missing his road- from the darkness of the night, and the severity of the weather, the horses plunged into the foaming deep, where they were drowned, and the chaise dashed to pieces, which fortunately contained no passengers. - Miraculously the driver regained the shore. The rivers Line and Ersk were also much swollen, and immense qualities of corn were carried off from the low grounds. The floods have also been destruc- tive in other places. We had heard that Hexham- bridge had been' washed away; but our Newcastle Correspondent is silent on the subject. MUTINEERS OF THE BOUNTY. The. following extract of a Letter from Buenos Ayres, to an eminent merchant in Cork, dated June 9, 1809, we have no doubt, w ill be entertaining to our Reader's:— " The American ship Topaz, Captain Matthew Folges, in the latter end of the year 1807, on a trad- ing voyage to the" South Seas, fell in with Pitcairn's Island iu lat. 26". S. long. 23. 7- He put out his boat to go on shore ; when he was met by some men ap- parently Indians in a boat, who hailed him in good English, and asked him where he came from, and invited him on shore, where he found a number of young men and girls, who all spoke good English.— They told him, that a man of the name of Smyth was waiting for him at his house, to which he was conducted, and from him he learned the following particulars:— " That he ( Smyth) had been a mariner and one of the mutineers on board the Bounty; and after they parted with Capt. Bligh, they put back to Otaheite. A few days after, Christian, the Chief of the muti- neerS called some of his most confidential men toge- ther, and told them that it would be unsafe to re- main there any longer; as it was very certain that the British Government would send after them, aud it was better to go as soon as possible from that place: Upon which they agreed to leave the island, and take with them their wives and servants, and every thing that was necessary for their maintenance, lo some uninhabited Island. Nine of the muti- neers, with their servants and women, accordingly embarked and brought the ship to Pitcairn's island; when, after taking every thing out they burned her. He further says, that in the course ot some time, the servants rose on their masters and killed all but himself ( Smyth); he having escaped into the woods, with a pistol- shot in his neck. He was in a few days afterwards found in this state in the woods by the women, who, by a well- concerted plan, had killed all the servants ; so that of the mutineers, Smyth now only was alive; and ever since, he had continued to live with them. The children which these women had, and those they were pregnant with, at the time their husbands were killed, had increased ; and these he had instructed in the English language and 3 26 SUNDAY REPORTER. OCT. I. Protestant Religion.-— During the 17 years he- iuiti been on the island, he had seen but one ship pass, a. id that at a great distance. Capt. Folges says, liteis houses and domestic affairs were conducted iu the same manner as the peasantry in England ; that the girls and boys were remarkably, handsome and well- proportioned ; and that he never met with better- conducted people in his life; that his crew could not obtain any particular favours of the women on any account; and that no clergyman could have a better- conducted flock than Smyth had. He de- clared he never would quit the island ; and if ever a king's ship touched there, he would secrete himself; as he never expected the English Government would pardon him.— On Capt. Foiges telling him of the victories of the English Navy over France, he wept, for joy like a child." CHILD DROPPING. GUILDHALL, SEPT. 27.— Mrs. Elizabeth Howcll Pugh and Thomas Pugh were brought up on a charge, that they did, on the night of tha 24th August last, expose, and abandon a female child, in a court which leads front Dyer's- buildings to Castle- street, Holborn. The Parish Officers were the Prosecutors. Ann Taylor stated, that about 18 months ago, Sirs. Pugh brought her the infant to nurse, which ap- peared to have been but a few hours born. She told her the parents were persons of consequence, and agreed to pay her 30s. a month; in about eight months afterwards Mrs. Pugh complained of the sum being too much, and the witness agreed to take 24s. a month ; and, four months ago, reduced it to one gui- nea, sooner than part with the child, to which she lvad got attached; to use the witness's own language, " it was the sweetest babe she had ever laid her eyes on, and she loved it as if it had been her own." The witness burst into tears; indeed she appeared affect- ed throughout, and her feelings would have . done ho- nour to the real parent. In continuation of her ev i- dence, she said, on Sunday evening, the 20th of Au- gust, Mrs. Pugh, accompanied by a Lady and Gentle- man, came to her house ; the child was undressed, but her clean clothes were on a chair airing. Mrs. Pugh said to the witness, " Have 1 caught you at last?" who replied, " she had not caught much, as the child's clothes were ready, and it would not take a minute to dress her." Mrs. Pugh desired her to make haste and do it, as she was come to take the child away. On the witness remonstrating, and ex pressing her regret, she looked at the strange lady, to implore her interference. Mrs. Pugh immediately said, that she was not the mother; but- putting her hand on the gentleman, said, this is one who has more interest in the welfare of the child than I have, and be will have her away; this made the witness suppose lie was the father, and she begged of him to be kind to the child. He told her there was no danger of that, aud kissed it several times. They took it away with them, and left the witness in tears. The Beadle of the parish proved the child's being found at ten o'clock, on Thursday, the 24th of Au- gust. Mary Taylor, the sister of the first witness, stated, that she was servant to a lady in Holborn, and having heard there was a child found, and that it was taken to the work- house, and the description given answer- ing that of her sister's child, for they always called her so, she went to the work- house, aud found her sur- mise to be right; she informed her sister, who made known to the officers of the parish the circumstance she had that day stated. The prisoners were examined separately, i Mrs. Pugh was the first. She stated the mother of the child was a young lady of respectability ; the father she knew nothing of, never having seen him ; but the lady and gentleman who were with her on the night the child was taken away were not the parents. The lady's name was Dally, and the gentleman's Rutledge; be was clerk to a cornfactor, and they both lived in Lawrence- lane. She then admitted what had been stated by Ann Taylor ; and added, that she had re- ceived letters from the child's mother, desiring that it might be taken from the nurse, and put into the work- house; she produced several letters, which she stated to be from the mother to that effect. The Sitting Alderman objected to the letters being read. He said, he was applied to for a private exa- mination in this case ; but that was what he would never submit to. Still there was some delicacy due to the family and connections of this young lady, who, he was informed, from a source he could not doubt, were truly respectable; and another consi- deration was, that her father and the child's grand- father was on his death- bed, and could not sur- vive many hours, and it was but humanity to save him this heart- rending pang in his last moments ; particularly so, as the disclosure of the name at pro- sent could not benefit the case. Mrs. Pugh then continued, and stated, that the other prisoner was her father- in- law ; her husband was dead; on the Sunday night she took the child from Ann Taylor, she left it with another nurse un- til tiie Thursday evening following, whfiu she again removed it, for the purpose of having it put in a work- house, the other prisoner bavin* undertaken to get it iuto one, for which she paid him 101.; they took a coach to Holborn, where she delivered the child to her father- in- law, and went home; he af- terwards told her he had left the child in St. Andrew'- watch- house. T. Pugh, of 84, Great Guildford- street, appa- rently upwards of 80 years of age, was next brought up ( Mrs. Pugh having been ordered to withdraw).— He at first denied knowing Mrs. Elizabeth Howell Pugh, but on being brought before him, he said she was his daughter- in- law, but that he did not know her by her Christian name. After a considera- ble deal of shuffling, he confessed, that he had re- ceived nine or ten pounds from Mrs. Pugh, to get the child into the London workhouse; that they took it in a coach to Holborn, on the night before- mentioned, between nine and ten, with an intent to expose it; that he held the child while Mrs. Pugh got out ot the coach and that she carried if to the above court, where they waited some time for an opportunity to drop it; and that, when they found the coast clear, she dropped the child, and ran off and he followed. He said he never would have thought of exposing the child, if Mrs. Pugh had not asked him, if he did not think there was such a thing as dropping the child? Being brought face to face, Mrs. Pugh denied almost all the evidence of her fa- ther. She said she never went into the coach with him, hut waited for him in Holborn, while he went with the child. The old man persisted in his former statement; and the Alderman ordered them both to be committed for trial. Mrs. Pugh stated, that the child was born in White- street, Little Moorfields, aud that, about six hours after it was born, she took it to Ann Taylor. That poor woman was so affected with that part of the evidence where the exposing of the child was mentioned, that she fainted away aud was carried out of Court. UNION HALL .— Elizabeth Holland, the young woman who has been already twice examined, was on Wednesday brought up a third time. If appears that she has been for upwards of four months committing depredations on the public, to an extent unequalled by any of her predecessors iu this species of imposi- tion. Upwards of 20 fresh charges were brought forward against her yesterday, by persons who have lost watches, spoons, and other articles of plate, al most all of which have been found by Goff at dif- ferent pawnbrokers. It appeared from the different statements of the persons examined, that the modes by which she had obtained admission into their houses, were similar to those already before the pub- lic; namely, by going to the house, when she was well aware that none of the family were at home, and representing herself to the servants as being related to the master or mistress. Many of the persons who have applied, have recovered their property; and several articles not yet claimed,' which were found at different pawnbrokers, where they had beeu pledged by the prisoner, are in possession of Goff, the Officer. On account of the number of charges preferred against her, she was remanded for another examina- tion. . ^ MARLBOROUGH- STREET.— It was stated a short time since, that persons were taken into custody who were the real fabricators of some hundreds of forged ll. Bank of England notes. Two of them, John Sly, and a woman of the name of Flamson, have been twice examined at Marlborough- street Police Office, aud on Tuesday they were fully committed for trial. The male prisoner is the same, who two years ago was sentenced to six months imprisonment, for forging theatrical benefit- tickets on Mr. De Camp and others. The woman prisoner cohabited with Sly, and they were taken into custody iu Shoredith ; and plates for the fabricating of notes were found iu their apartments. CORONER'S INQUEST.— On Wednesday an Inquest was held, at a public- house in Whitefriars, on the body of an infant supposed to have been murdered, found by a watchman in the Temple the evening be- fore. The watchman stated, that as he was going his rounds on Tuesday evening, about eleven o'clock, he observed something standing on the steps of No. 2, Fig- tree-. court; which, on examining, he dis covered to lie an earthen jar, covered with brown paper; thinking he had found a prize, he took it up, but did not immediately open it. On doing so some- time after, he saw it was filled with something white which he took to be tallow; but w hich, on closer inspection, proved to be the body of an infant. A medical gentleman, and several women, who were examined stated it as their opinion, that it was the body of an infant about six days old. The jar was so small, that it must have been with some difficulty the body was squeezed into it; and on its being taken out a considerable quantity of blood was dis- covered at the bottom of the jar. Under all the circumstances, the Jury returned a verdict of Wilful Murder against some person or persons unknown. The jar is not a common one ; but it is made of finer earth than they usually are, and is ornamented with a variety of figures on the outside. AcciDENTS.— The Richmond long coach was overturned on Tuesday night, in passing through Walham- green. It was full of company, many of whom are seriously hurt. One lady had her thigh dreadfully bruised, and part of the flesh torn off. Her daughter's arm was much hurt, and it is feared is broken ; another lady was bruised in the hip, jnid i had his head cut; another was cut in the hand, The accident was occasioned by the state ofthe road. The workmen had been digging a drain across it; and when they left off work in the even- ing, they filled it with loose soft stuff, level with tlie road. The wheel sunk into it, and the coach was thus overturned. Friday se'nnight, Kibblewhite's Bromley coach was overturned at South End, on its\ vay to town, in consequence of being very heavily laden ; there be- ing no less than thirty passengers, twelve inside, and eighteen out. No lives were lost; but Mr. Leach, a grocer, of the London- road, and his brother were much bruised. Thursday, between one and two o'clock, a violent storm of hail did much mischief in various parts of the metropolis. The wind blew a hurricane during a short time, aud several small sheds or dwelling- houses, in the New Cut, Lambeth, were complete- ly unroofed. A Lady and Gentleman on Westmin- ster Bridge were compelled to resign their umbrella, which was torn away by the sudden gust, and carried into the Thames. Many vessels have doubtless re- ceived much damage by the squall. The exterior of Henry the Seventh's Chapel is now repairing. The ancient Gothic ornaments are great- ly defaced by the rude easterly winds; and the di- lapidations of this venerable Pile require constant at- tention from the workmen employed to keep it in repair. Tuesday night, as a poor women who carries milk in the neighbourhood of Southampton- street, Covent- garden, was going along the Strand, she, in crossing uear Cecil- street, was accidentally run over by a coal waggon, and was much hurt; she was conveyed to the Middlesex Infirmary, with little hopes of recovery. On Wednesday Wood, a bricklayer, fell from the top of a three- story ladder, in Hoxton ; by which he was so much bruised that his recovery is de- spaired of. Thursday morning, a serious accident happened in Blackfriars- road ; a chaise being left without any one in care of the horse, the animal took fright, it is supposed, through the wanton mischief of some idle boys, and ran furiously along the road, till, meeting with obstruction, it took the wide foot- way opposite the Rev. Rowland Hill's chapel, and was not stopped till it had beatend down one man, and three children, two of whom, a girl of nine years of age, and Ihe other nearly seven, were seriously hurt, aud are not expected to recover. On Monday afternoon, about seven o'clock as two Northampton waggons were passing the Church at Highgate, by some accident one of the drivers fell, and the wheel of his own waggon, going over his head, killed him " on the spot. It is understood, that both waggons left London at the same hour, and that a competition, as to speed, took place; us both were seen at Holloway, with the horses in a swing trot. The body was immediately taken to the Gate- house, and Mr. Richards, the landlord, was so much affected by the accident, as to be unable since to quit his room, PORTSMOUTH, SEPT. 2.9.— Wind N. W.
