Saturday Government received Dispatches an< j infantrv, with a large detachment ofthe from Mr. Jackson, our Ambassador in Atne- INTENDED NAVIGATION FROM STAMFORD TO HARBOROUGH. rtca, by Mr. Erskine, our late Minister there. These communications, we understand, are of a pacific character, and refer to the inter- course which had taken place between Mr. Jackson and the American Executive; but we hear they are not decisive as to any of the points in dispute, as Congress had not assem- bled at tiieir date. A series of American papers to the 29th ult. have been received. The following is the most interesting article they contain :— " A report has reached town tins morning from Washington, on which we place some reliance, that JVlr. Armstrong has written to this Government thai any arrangement with France is utterly im- practicable, aud that all further a tempts art aban- doned ; in consequence of which, it is added, ne- gotiations lor an arrangement wi h England are begun with Mr. Jackson."— New York Evening Pose. Friday, the Gottenburgh Mail of the 17th arrived at the Post Office. It is stated, that Swedish ships of war are stationed off their principal ports to prevent the ingress of British vessels; but vessels loading there are allowed to the 1st of December for their departure. Three convoys have sailed from this country far Sweden since it was known here that the Swedish ports were to be shut against us on the 15Lh instant. The last, in fact, did not pass Yarmouth until yesterday. Whether this singular circumstance results solely from a spirit of adventure and enterprize in our , merchants, or from an understanding between !' s Ullder convoy ofthe Confiance. the two Governments, we know not— wc in- i Tlle Haddock schooner, Lieutenant Henry &'- — - waggon tram, are immediately to be embark- ed tor Portugal. If this be correct, the de- i sign that was lately entertained to bring away the British army from the Peninsula, must have since been abandoned. But it is possible that these troops may be destined for Corfu, or for Guadaloupe : in either case, the Expedi- , tion may call at Portugal. I'he following corps which are now perfect skeletons, are immediately to be brought home from Walcheren :— Royal Artillery, Royal Waggon Corps, a squadron ofthe 9th Dra- goons, 5th, 6th, 26th, 36th, 84th, 88th, 91 st. The following corps are immediately < o go out:— the lltli, 14th, 51st, 79th, 94th; liesides Artillery, and two squadrons of the 9th Dragoons, with strong reinforcements for the Scots Royals, Queen's, 50th, 76th, 77th, and two light battalions of the German Legi- on. Ofthe 76th regiment now in Walche- ren, 350 have come home sick, and 200 more remain sick in the hospitals on the island. The Confiance, Capt. Yeo, arrived in - the Downs on Saturday, with eight sail of mer- chantmen, from Rio Janeiro, in thirteen weeks. She has 600,000 dollars on board, belonging to British merchants. Capt. Rose, of his Majesty's late ship Agamemnon, which was wrecked jn the River Plata, his officers, and part ofthe crew, came home in the Bawn 1 transport and are arrived at Portsmouth.

EDMUND SWINFEN, Druggist, Market- 1' lace, LEICESTER ; HAS just received an As- sortment of Elastic Spring Trusses, manufactured by JOHN WRIGHT, No 31, Paradise Street, t. iver- ... .... [.... | oj. .; i, ese Trusses are made upon anew Principle UD at the same respectively; and if no advance I an( j j. \ y. warrantsthem to answer every Purpose r . - . - r Sums as I clitie to think the latter is the case. Several vessels are still loading in the River for the Swedish market. The commercial intercourse between this • country aud the ports in the Baltic, we un- derstand, has been greater this year that at any former period, even of profound peace. In the course ofthe last five months more than 2,200 Vessels passed through the Belt, not one of which was captured by the enemy, notwithstanding the repeated attempts of the Danish gun- boats, more than 100 in number, to annoy them during the passage in calms. The following is, we believe, the substance of the non- oflicial information received by Government from Cadiz, on which great reli- ance is placed, as evidence that an action has taken place in thu Mediterranean :— " 1 he Toulon fit et, cons- sting cf 16 or 17 sail of the line, left the harbour of Toulon on the 21TI and 22d ol October, having under its protection a fleet of transports, amounting to about 25 in num- ber, all bound to Barcelona. 1 he transports were conveyed to a certain latitude by the whole fleet, after which they were lelt to pursue the remaining part of their voyage, under the protection of three I satl of the line aud two frigates. ' I he remaining * : pa A. of the fleet having shifted their course, had pr. ifcfded either towards Sicily, or on their re- turn to 1 oulon. Ot the three sail of the line and frigates, two were burnt, and the third eacaped with the Pauline frigate into Cette. Of the trans- ports, 18 are understood to have been taktn, and three or ( bur destroyed." Orders have been sent to the Port Admiral at Plymouth to send to sea every ship of force tit for actual service. They are destined to cruize in different points along the French toast, with a view of picking up the straggling ships that might have escaped from Lord Col- lingwood, and run for their own ports in vari- ous directions. Saturday accounts were received at the Ad- - in b liralty of the sailing of four frigates and a rig from Nautz, for Guadaloupe. This squadron has been for some fnonths past ex- pected in the West Indies; and Admiral Cochrane, informed of their equipment and destination, had stationed the Alcmene and some other frigates, for the purpose of inter- cepting them. These vessels are supposed to have sailed from the Loire on the evening of the 15th inst. ; on the day following, one of them, the Ren mmee, of 28 guns, boarded a vessel, which on Thursday, arrived at Ply- mouth, from Bilboa: but suffered her to pro- ceed on her voyage. On the same day, the Dreadnought, of 9S guns, bearing Admiral Sotheby's flag, fell in with them, and chased for several hours, when the loss of her fore- top- gallant- mast obliged her to abandon the pursuit. A Channel Fleet is ordered to be formed.— ' 1 he Caledonia, CaptaiaBedford, ( Lord Gam- j Edwards, was captured on the 12th instant, by La Genie French National brig of war, of 18 guns, 24- pounders, to the westward of Scilly, after a chase of eight hours. She sailed from Jamaica on the 2d of October, with dispatches and a mail, which were thrown overboard and sunk during the chase. The Frenchmen plundered the Haddock, and afterwards gave her up to Lieutenant Ed wards. She arrived at Portsmouth on Satur- day morning. The long- pending question, respecting the illegality of subjecting Militia soldiers to nava discipline, is at length nearly brought to an issue; but not untill repeated remonstrances had been made to the Secretary of State by the Colonel of the West Essex Militia. The prisonships are now to be paid off; and it is understood that they will cease to be com- manded by naval officers in commission, but be under the management of agents appointed by the Transport Board : so that being con- sidered as hulks, the Militia may serve on board them, and be subject to the Militia laws only. It is said, that the case we lately mentioned will nevertheless be brought into a Civil Court. The Marquis Wellesley has announced, in dispatches received on Thursday by the Pickle schooner, his entire approbation of the late proceedings in his Majesty's Councils, and his readiness to accept the Seals ofthe Foreign Department. His Lordship intended to sail from Cadiz, if possible, on the 8th instant, on board the Donegal frigate, and his arrival in England may therefore be daily expected. A most destructive fite broke out, on Tuesday r. ight, in the stable of Mr. E. Argles, upholsterer, situate at the hack of his hotise, in High- street, Maidstone; from whence it communicated, in a short time, to the work- shops and extensive premi- ses adjoining, wh'ch were entirely consumed.— Notwithstanding the exertions of the fire- men, the flames afterwards communicated to, and burnt down the shop of Mr. Valentine, plumber and glazier; the slaughter- house of Mr. Johnson, butcher; and two dwelling - houses be- longing to Mrs. llussell, besides gut ling three others. Fortunately, at the moment when the flames were at the highest, the wind shift d, 3nd thus preserved the greater part of High- street froin destruction. The loss is estimated at 5000'. maueaiix'.

For Insurance on Lives and granting Annuities. rHIS Office was established in Lombard Street, London, in the Year 1797, bv a numerous and lespectable Proprietary ; and the Board of Di rectors, with Confidence, arising from the increased Prosperity and Permanency of the Establishment, as well as from the Experience of its Usefulness and Be- nefit to the Public, think it due to those who may be still unacquainted with the Importance and Advan- tage of Life Insurance, briefly to suggest soma of its leading and peculiar Recommendations to almost every Degree and Rank in Society. Life Insurance is of manifest Consequence to all who hold Estates for Life, Situations and Offices, Civil, Ecclesiastical, or Professional; to Officers in tile Army and Navy, See. as, by Payment of an An- nual Premium, the Party insured is enabled to provide for Wife, Children, or others, whose future Welfare he may wish in vain, by other Means to promote.— It affords a permanent ultimate Security to those who advance Money upou Annuities or otherwise. It ren,' ders Leases, determinable on one or more Lives nearly equal in Value to Freehold Estates, as an Insurance to the Amount of the Fine, payable on the Demise of a Party nominated in such Leases, will produccthe Sum required for Renewal It is a cheer- ing Refuge to Parties engaged in extensive and spe- culative Undertakings; it affords to Persons in Trade the certain Means of Indemnification against a bad or doubtful Debt; in short, Life Insurance, establish, etl in Policy, sanctioned by Government, and con- firmed by the Test of Experience, is become, to al- most every Situation of Human Life, a Measure equally Important, Useful, and Beneficial. Annuities are granted upon the most equitable Terms, under a Special Act of Parliament, granted to this Office. THOMAS PARKE, Sec. COMPANY'S' AGENTS. LEICESTER— G. B. Hodges.

THE Virtues of thJuQil extracted from a Tree in the Island « f Macassar, in the East Indies, are pre- eminent to any Thing ever discovered for im- proving the Growth of Hair, preventing it falling off or changing Colour, bestowing an unrivalled Gloss « n the TRESSES, and producing extraordinary Effects on Children's Hair.— Observe this is the only Preparation for the Hair that is sanctioned by any Part ofthe Royal Family. Sold at 3s. 6d. per Bottle, by the Proprietors, Rowland and Son, Kirby Street, Matton Garden, London; and by Edmund Swinfen, at his general and g ' inline Drug, Medicine, aud Perfume Ware- house, opposite the Conduit, Leicester; Booth, aud Caistor, Lincoln; Merridew, Coventry; and all Perfumers and Medicine Vanders in the United Kingdom.— Where may be had an Essay oil the Human Hair, by A, Rowland, Jatir, l" MnrMlE Royal Family, and Ladies and Gentlemen 5 Y J. of Fashion, use Russia Oil, for moisten ng the Hair when dressing, which is so great a Nourisher to the Hair as to prevent it turning Grey to all Peri- ods; promotes the Growth, and makes the Hair grow thick and long; it prevents its falling off, and restores it on bald Places, if the least Roots remain. Several Gentlemen that were bald, have declared, after using the Russia Oil regularly for 6 Months, the bald Places became nearly covered with Hair ; i also promotes F. ye Brows and Whiskers. Gentlemen ought not to omit using it to the Whiskers after Shav- ing, as it will prevent them turning a reddish Colour, or grey, which is too generally the Case, on Account of the Wetting they receive from Shaving. Ladies and Gentlemen who wear false Hair will find the Russia Oil a valuable Articic to use when dress- ing, asitg\ vos it a natural Gloss. It is generally remarked Persons wearing false Hair, that after a short Time wearing, it be comes dry aud stiff', and is easily discovieeU as- tf keeps the Hair soft, and ren- ders its appearance N atural. The high Reputation that the Russia Oil has gain- ed for preserving aud- promoting the Hair, and the great Demand foi it, has lately induced envious Per- sons to copy the Advertisement and advertise Arti- cles for a similar Purpose,' which have not the Effect!; it is therefore particularly recommended to observe the Label on the Outside Wrapper of each Boitle is signed in Russia Gold Ink, " Mpchrikufsky and Prince;" any without that Signature- tare.

Wednesday's and Thursday's Post. LONDON, WEDNESDAY November 29. German Papers to the 19th, and Paris Paper to the 16th inst. have been received in Town. From French Papers we learn that Bona- parte arrived at Paris on the evening of the 11th, and " the following day the King of Sax- ony arrived in that city. Preparations were making in the church of Notre Dame for a thanksgiving which is to take place on the 2d of Dec. the anniversary of Bonaparte's co- ronation. It is stated that he means on that day to assume the title of Emperor of Germa- ny ; and it is suggested that his German vas- sals hate been assembled to give some colour of right to the assumption. The German Papers remove all doubts with respect to the submission of the Tyroleans; and, in the state of Continental aflairS, vain and ruinous indeed had been any further re- sistance on their part to the overwhelming : force which the peace with Austria had ena- j bled France and Bavaria to send against them, j Hofler, their chief, is stated to have made his ; formal submission and resigned his sword to the Bavarian General at Inspruck. Letters from A Itona ofthe 10th state, that the Danish Government has notified an armis- tice w'th Sweden, to commence from the 12th and to continue until farther orders. Marquis Wellesley arrived at Spithead in • he Donegal, on Sunday, and reached town this morning. According to the accounts he brings, the disposition of the lower class of people in Spain againstthe French is as vio- lent as ever. The Spanish armies are nearly in the same condition as before ; not much improved in numbers or in discipline. Gero- na still held out. Blake was in the vicinity, but too weak to do much. The Duke del Parque has followed up his success ; he enter- fed Salamanca some days after his victory at Ta. names; and the enemy retreated without molestation. The Marquis has not been able to renovate the Spanish Government to the ex- tent that was hoped from his influence, but it appears he has prevailed on the Junta to fix t lie Convocation of the Cortes for the Ist of January next, and it is supposed they will be able to begin business on the lst of March following. In the mean while the Executive Power is to be lodged in the hands of a Direc- tory or Executive Council, composed of seven Members, with the Marquis of Astorga at their head. Much is expected from the vi- gour and energy of this body, who are to be invested with authority equal to the critical state of aflairs in that country. Mr. B.

COOKE, Secretary. Leicester, November 6, 1809, The Rev. Edmund Outram, D. D. Archdea- con of Derby, who lately resigned the office of Public Orator of the University cf Cambridge, has been collated by the Lord Bishop of Licit- field, to succeed the Rev . Dr. Madan, as a Canon Residentiary of the cathedral church of Lichfield, and rector of St. Philip's church, in Birmingham. The Rev. Isaac Milner, D. D, President of Queen's college, was on Saturday elected ViCe- Chancellor of Cambridge University for the year ensuing.^ The Heads of Houses are generally chosen in rotation, and the turn this year came to the Master of Christ college ; but the majority of the electors being in favour of the President of Queens, he was chosen to this very respectable office. The Bishops of several dioceses have issued cir- cular letters, ordering the incumbents of those churches where the livihgs will afford it, to aug- ment the salaries of their curates to a certain de- gree. ' The contest between Austria and France being closed for the present, the affairs of the Continent afford little scope for Political comment. In com- paring the great military occurrences of the cam- paign that has been just terminated, with those of former wars, we are surprised to find their politi- cal consequences so unimportant. On no occasion has the strength of two great empires been put forth so little to the advantage ofthe victorious, or the detriment of the vanquished power. Austria, it is true, has made great sacrifices both in point of ter- ritory and commerce, but her military power, or the means of maintaining it, are little affected thereby. Had the EMP£ ROR FRANCIS consent- ed, as was most likely demanded, to disband the greater part of ihe army that has survived the crash of the late dreadful battles, he would have been fallen indeed, li would have been tantamount to compleat political extinction. It would have been such a Confession of the power of the enemy, p. nd of his own weakness, as must have damped the spirits and deadened the energies of his gallant and loyal subjects, beyond the possibility Of restoration. " The enormous increase of the military establish- ment of Austria, was the teal and ostensible cause ot the late war; but we do not find in the treaty j any one article or proviso, which touches this im- I portant point or the original difference in the small- I est degree. There is no insolent condition, spe- cifying hat Austria shall reduce her military esta- blishment to any given number, and that she shall j not ir. crease it beyond that number, without leave from France. If it be Considered therefore | that France went to war with Austria for the avowed purpose of reducing her to a state in which she could offer no resistance to the projects of Buo- naparte, against herself or her neighbour, this treaty tan be regarded only as a negative triumph o n the part of France. Sorry as we are, that Austria has been compelled to purchase peace by any sacrifices; we derive much satisfact'on in finding that she is not so humbled as to consent to the reduction ot her military establishment. It is a favourable omen of what she may do at a more fortunate opportunity. Yesterday the Anniversary Dinner of the Cor- poration, was given at the Guildhall, to a numerous and highly respectable assemblage of the town and county, by Wm, Finnadge, Esq. Mayor.— The Dinner wa^ s served up with much elegance and tas e, in two courses, and consisted of abundance of every delicacy in season; Unanimity and Con- viviality were the order of the day, and the festal board had not lost all it i votaries , ai a late hour this morning.—- T be following Nobleman and Gentle- men honoured Mr, Mayor with their presence on the occasion.

BONAPAPARTE in his spleen, has denominated us " a natron of shoplctepers ;" and we can find a ready apology for his illhumour; but we are really at a loss to account for the illiberal opinion of a Priest, who in the discharge of bis pastoral functi- ons, lately ventured to pronounce us a nat on of " cheats" and pekpockets. We know r. o other construction that can well be put upon the follow- ing sentence, which We believe is correctlv trans- cribed, " You can scarcely enter a shop without being cheated." We venerate the sacerdotal office, and bow with deference and respect io the man- dates ofthe pulpit, with no dispositiou whatever to speak irreverently ; but we cannot permit ( either generally or locally) so broad and coarse an asserti- on to be publicly made, without declaring it a gross and unfounded libel, upon the respectable part of the trading community. How far thelleveiend Gen- t'eman's wants may enable him to speak etpeiimen- taily we know not, but if we were disposed to be jocose, we should tharitab! v hope, the evil would be found to centre, with dealers in BR IMSTONK only I! T he long complained of evil, of want of light in the streets of this town, is at last likely to be remov- ed; the inhabitants in the Market- placeare making a general arrangeme nt for regularity in disiance, as well as an increase of lamps; anil we are glad to fird that in several ofthe public and more retired streets; a similar disposition is laudably evincing itself: it has been too often remarked by strangers to the disgrace of the town, that; to pass the streets in an everinig, it m'ght be supposed there was neither weahhNjr public spirit in ihe place! The Leicestershirerrgiment of Militia left Lewes on Monday last for Steyningin Sussex. The Theatricals of the present week, cdm- menced with the old historical play of King Charles the First, for the benefit of ITAKLEY .---- The ap pearance of the house at the commencement, did not appear tp have given merit its due, but was very respectably filled before the conclusion of the even- ing :— We think the selection a little unfortunate; the play being better calculated for the closet than representation ; it isbut justice however to observe, that the principal characters did all they could to maintain ihe dignity o: the piece ; and the costume ofthe day was closely attended to, and well repre- sented.— FOOTK, on Tuesday evening undertook the arduous character of HAMLET, and performed it with well studied character, and much T heatric ability. The cahvais for the high office! bf Chancellor of the University of Oxford continues with unabated vigour. The candidates are the Duke of Beau- ton , Lord Grenville; and Lord Eldon. Wd are informed; that notwithstanding a return is required to be immediately made of those per- sons who are liable to serve in the local and other militia's, that no ballot will take place at present. On Friday last; Willidm Davies a journeyman bootmaker, was publicly tvhipped in Coventry, for embezzling prime leather delivered to him to make np into boots; and substituting inferior leather in its sieath Two villains on Wecheiday, robbed a cart at- tached to the stage waggon belonging to Mr. Hunt, between Stamford and Casterton, and succeeded in getting possession of a chest of tea, with which thev were making rff, when a boy who was in the tail of the waggon gave the alarm, and the booty was abandoned.---'! he Melton waggon was last week robbed of a valuable truss, whilst standing at the door of a public- house in Siamford Ou Wednesday evening lastj as a gentleman of Coventry was returning/ rom Warwick, the night being dark andifoggy, his horse came in contact with a post chaise, the shaft of which struck with such violence, that it entered the horse's breast the poor animal expired a few minu es afterwards. The gentleman sustained no material injury. A melancholy circumstance took place cn Mon- day last, at Weefclevj in ihe county of Northamp- ton, Mr. John Knowie collector or taxes, for the above place, having had the misfortune to lose the money he had collected ( which he was to pay over to the Receiver General) to the amount of between three and four nundred pounds, and not hearing Of it after giving public notice of his loss, took the desperate t esoiution of poisoning himself, which occasioned his death the same evening. It appears, however, lhat the whole of the money was found prior to his having had recour.- e to that fatal act, but thai he was not informed of it till too late. A tailor, on Tuesday, paid a penalty of ' 101. at Stamford, for going out with a gun to kill game, ~ not having a licence. Caution to Hawkers and Pedlars.— We insert the following list of convictions, as a caution against hawkers vending goods without a licence : On the 23d of August last, Ed- vavd Killin, a native oflreland, was convicted before Henry Brown, Esq. Mayor ofthe borough of Derby, of hawking linens without a licence. On the 20th tilt. Lydia Banners, of Belper, was convicted before F. N. C. Mutidy, Esq. D. I'. Coke, Esq. aud the several other Sitting Magistrates, of hawking earthenware, at Pentridge under the like circumstances. On the 3uth ult. Samuel Peveral the elder, of the town of Nottingham, was convicted before Wright Coldham, Esq. Mayor, of a similar'offence. Aud on Friday last, Catherine Wilkinson, of Heage, was convicted before F. N. C. Mundy, aud D. P. Coke, Esqrs. at Derby, of hawking hardware, at t rich, without a licence, and oil non- payment of the penalty, she was committed to prison for three months. Mr. Hill; of WiHsdon, near Ilounslow, who died on ' Thursday, has left property to the amount of 1,800,0001.

The objection of the Learned ' Counsel to this Bye- Law was, that at the best, it was an un- eason- able one ; the choice not being in the majority even of the Seleci Body, but in the majority present at any s, uch meeti, g, so that it might happen that the choice might remain in ihe Mayor and one Alder- man: Lord Ellenborough—" Let us have a copy of t! i « rec > rd, and take your rule."

O'er the wide world, where Fancy roves— Where fond illusions gently swell, ' Midst magic caves and fairy groves, Mr grottos rude, where hermits dwell; E'en there Impatience feeds the mind, And pictures bliss each joining hour ; Fate throws a gloom we think unkind— And bends us with its ruling pow'r! Ah, YESTERDAY, for ever fled! Ourdeit'nest moments pass away; Too soon the clouds of Trouble spread— And Darkness ends the scenes of day ! TilE COW.

For the saktr of perspi - cuiiy, let us now restate it. X. s d. Superiority ofthe New Leicesters over the Merinos in mutton, for a year Inferiority of the Merinos over the New Leicesters in wool, for a year To the Editor of the Leicester Journal. Mr. EDIT OR, In ihe manatement of any experiments con-- ducted by an individual, which have for their ob- jeci the ascertainment fthe comparative value of different breeds of cattle, or sheep, such a compli- cation of considerations are unavoidably involved, that it rarely happens that the result leaves upoti the minds of cool, and dispassionate observers, any jatisfactory impression. Error, prejudice, unfit ness of situation for the trial, an unfair selection of animals from the breeds, with which the experiment is tried, and nun1' rous other considerations rush in upon the Experimenter, either to strip the experi- ment of its ciaim tn ( aimers, or to render it altoge- ther nugatory, and abor ive. We might adduce numerous instances in proof of the justness of the foregoing observation ; but , to cite a very recent one we have only occasion to advert to your last week's Journal for a statement of an experiment, tried last summer at Pickworth, by Mr. Wright, between six Merino wethers, and the same number of New Leicesters. As a prepa- ratory step to this experiment, a selection of Me- i inos was made with a lb. of wool to each sheep above the authenticated average weight of any flock of that breed, whilst the New Leices'ers were selected with a lb. of wool to each sheep below their known verage weight. The Experiment wis conducted from May 15th, to September 25' h, and terminated ia favour of the Merinos. Had the Experimenter wished to have impressed us witba conviction of any tolerable de- free of accuracy, or fairness, it is presumed he would have continued hi s experiment for the space ofavearat least, and have kept the animals in a state of progressive improvement during that time: by omitting to do that he has glossed over the sub- ject in a very unsatisfactory manner, ft is proba- ble however there may have been some latent mo- tive tor such a palpab'e omission, " Errors like straws upon the surface flow, " Those who would search for Pearls, must dive be- [ low." DRY DEN. reasoning frcm the facts with which the Experi- menter has himself furnished es, let us proceed to a more minute investigation of the subject. From the aggregue statement exliib ted by him, it appeals that there remained £. s. d. A superiority ofthe Merinos over the New Leicesters, in the wool for a year oj A superiority of tiie New Leicesters over tbe Merinos, iu mutlou, for 4 months and 10 days of r 4 19 in 2 17 3 B. lance in favour ofthe Merinos 2 2 7 The Merinos as well as the New Leicesters could shorn only once within the year, and the profit srising from the fleeces having been already in- cluded in the account for the year, must continue stationary, for the remaining period of time ; on the contrary, the profit arising frotm the mutton, was progressively increasing Thp experiment as stated above terminated at the expiration of four months and ten days, and during that time; the New Leicesters had giined a superiority over the Merinos in mutton of • 42 17s. 3d. which by continuing the same pro- portion i-> shewn by a simple arithmetical progress to amount to jf7 15s. ll| d. for a year, i am awaee that it may be urged that, the New Lei- cesters mighi not have gained in the same propor- tion, during some other parts of the vcar, as for vmeseason ; but, by attending to the Expe- r n ers own statement, we find that for the ! a- t riavs, th ety of parents, when the glands become first swelled and diseased, or he usual symptomsof schrophulous enlargement of the stomach in children takes place. In eruptive cases ofScurvv, Gout, Rheumatism, and Nertrous lriita- tion of the Stomach f rom bilious affections, its supe- riority has long been acknowledged.

It is universally allowed that History is not only one ofthe most Us fill, as well as one of the mist polite Studies thatc ui be pursued ; but il is equally certain, that it affords the greatest Fund of real Knowledge and Improvement; so that for a Native of this Country to be ignorant of the History of the United Kingdom of Great Britian, would, in the present Day, render, him totally un- qualified for Public Employment, or for general Conversation No Country in the World has expe- rienced gieater Vicissitudes and Changes than that which vve inhabit ; and no one possesses a greater claim to the Laboursofthe Historian. The Events which have taken Place during the last Fifty Years, have rendered the Composition of a new History of this Country more necessary than ever; for whoever castsa retrospective Eye over the Trans- actions of the present ISeign, will readily Acknow- ledge, that it is pregnant with Circumstances of such Magnitude as cannot fail to render it an important Epoch iu the Annals ot Eng. ish History.
