Uni- versal consternation and dismay prevails throughout Holland, in consequence oi the approach of the French troops and functionaries, for the purpose of depriving it of all commercial as well as political liberty.— The Stockholders were very naturally not less alarmed than the merchants, and the fundi, from the general deter- I mination to sell at any price that cou'd be procured, accordingly experienced a very considerable depression, The report of an intention to abolish the Dutch funds altogether, is repeated in these letters; and the state- ment derives some sanction from the obvious conclu sion that in default of the revenue arising from com- merce, the means of paying the interest o? the national debt will for the most part be extinguished. Other rumours, however, state, that it is not intended to abolish; the funds, but, on the. formal annexation of Hollaud to France, to consolidate, the debts of both countries.— The latter appears to be tlie most probable statement of the two. Dispatches received at the Earl of Liverpool's office, from Lisbon, speak of. the retreat of Hie. Duke del Parque's army, but not of Its defeat, t< 5 the extent mentioned in the French papers. It is, however, cer- tain that the resistance of the Spaniards, both at Ocana, and Alba de Tormes, was feeble. After failures like these, little hope can be entertained of the re- assembling of other effective artities; and still less of any determined or effectual exertion by those armies; so as to afford any prospect of preventing or materially retarding the reduction of the parts of Spain still in possession of independence, by the numerous forces which Bonaparte is constantly pouring in. Indeed, if we may credit rumours that are curreut irt the military circles, the reinforcement which was under orders fuV Portugal, has been countermanded— and the troops are. to be sent lo India.— If this last- mentioned circumstance, be correct, we may conclude that the mutiny in ludia is considered by Government as of a very serious descrip- tion; and it is far from improbable that Lord Welling- ton himself may soon be sent < iut to our Eastern pos- sessions lo endeavour to restore tranquillity. It is reported in the city, that an actual rebellion had taken place among our troops in the East Indies t that they had seized and hung Sir George Barlow at his own door ; aud that Lord Miiito, having also fallen into their hands, was kept , in close confinement and expected the same fate. That a serious insubordina- tion lias taken place in our eastern dominions, we think, no doubt can be entertained; but that it has led to th « dreadful consequences already enumerated, is both doubtful and unlikely. The intelligence, if true, must have been brought by the late arrivals from India: how could it happen, therefore, that vthilst the previous in- formation respecting tbe insubordination had transpired, that which related to the open rebellion of the army, should have ,. the reported j events be within the range ol' possibility, as they do not | spring froiii au official source, they can as yet lay no | claims to authenticity; !

The whole appear sound, and will be found deserving the Attenti m of Persons wanting such Timber. John Pierce, of the Upper Living, near Berrietv, will shew the Timber.

Penbryn, near Montgomery; or of Mr. Gould, Oulfo, near Welsh Pool. 1 mean, iu case the Spaniards are unsuccessful m Europe, they will be wrong to interfere iu any matters ill this county with regard to succession. The South Americans bear no great love to natives of Old Spain. Iudeed, they look upon them with a very jealous eye, as they occupy ail the principal offices in Church ami State. Their dislike to this system is increased by the haughty behaviour of tbe native Spaniards, who look upon themselves as a superior race. Warm expressions about these matters are very general, not only in this place, but throughout the whole country.— Liniers, the late Viceroy, is generally beloved, and it was impolitic to remove him so suddenly from his Viceroyalty, and particularly without shewing any gratitude for his ser- vices, except confirming the empty title of Count, which is a mockery, when it is attempted to disgrace the man. His being a Frenchman was, 1 suppose, the cause of his removal, and tbe present party have sent out of the town others of that nation, for the same reason; thus taking lo themselves a licence to tyran- nize, though they profess to wage war against tyranny and oppression.— Perhap9 Spaiu had not a more faith- ful or better sub ject iu South America than Liniers." French Papers, to the date of December 29, inform us, that troubles have broken out in Dalmatia, which the French Governor General has declared in a state of siege. A Proclamation has been published to t! e people, threatening them with tbe severest punishm nt if they do not return to obedience aud tranquillit,— Hitherto these threats had little effect— the people detest the French. LONDON. THURSDAY, JANUARY 4. A few more French Papers have been received, to the date of the 27 th of December. It appears worthy of uotice, that after what has been cabled the very signal victory obtained by General Kellerman over the Duke • del Parque's army, at Alba de Tormes, that General took positions and adopted precautions which indicate a dread of fresh attack, rather than that confidence and security which the dispersion and disarmament of the Spaniards would naturally be expected to give rise to. It ia evident that the French must keep troops iir every town and village, and that they are apprehensive that these small bodies of men will be attacked and cul off, aa often as opportunities shall offer. It is from this principle that Kellerman, a very prudent Officer, or- dered the fortifications of the castle ot Alba de Tormfes to be repaired and strengthened. It appears from this, that M. Kellerman calculates upon the probability of his victorious troops being besieged in it; and, in fact, it ' is evident that the French themselves are aware that they can never keep Spain, nor any place in it, other wise than by placing garrisons and guards throughout the country. There can be no desire on our part to go to war with the United States; but really from the temper they shew in the correspondence which has been pub- lished, it is not easy to see how any adjustment can be brought about, consistently with British dignity and spirit. They adopt the most insulting and haughty language to lis— they put up with the grossest affronts " from France with tameness, whilst they exaggerate every act done by Great Britain. They will have all the overtures come from lis, as if peace with them was a matter of necessity or of advantage only to us— they reject the conditions we propose to them,, lnrt will sub- mit none to us. According to the " new diplomatic doc- trine of Mr. Madison, we are'to go on altering and fashioning and accomuioda ting our propositions, till they shall at length be deemed admissible by that stern Re- publican. He wraps himself up with his Ministers iu mysterious silence and seciesy— our Negotiator is nort to presume to approach- them with familiarity— he is to be denied all aceess, conversation,' or conference—' the Republic Cabinet is a spot too sacred to be trodden by the feet of the representative of a King.— We are humbly to lay at the foot of the Republican Secretary our offers of peace— and if they be rejected, we are to submit others— we are to take care too that our lan- guage be perfectly moderate and forbearing—" we must on no account dare to make any insinuation or even an implication that should wound their delicate feelings. If we do, all negociation, that is, the permission to make offers and propose conditions, is to be suspended till we send a negotiator who shall adopt a more courtly, delicate, and forbearing style. Should we not say to America, " These are our offers— you refuse them.— Yon will make none in re- turn to us. We therefore withdraw our Ambassador, and break off all correspondence with you. The first step to negociation— the first cftertures must in future come from you." Ministers, it continues to be said, have determined to • recal Mr. Jackson, and not to appoint a successor in his place. In consequence of the death of Sir William Pitt, late Governor of the garrison of Portsmouth, the Duke of - Cumberland is appointed to succeed in the commaud. His Royal Highness is expected there in the course of a day or two, to make arrangements for his abode in the house appointed for the Governor, hut lately occupied by the Town- Major. He will have a complete staff and suite with him. The Army Medical Board, it is confidently said, is very shortly to be abolished ; a step which will, no doubt, give some satisfaction to the public as well as to the army. The whole system has, indeed, long required a radical change of some kind or other. The Amendment which is proposed to be moved to the Address, on the Meeting of Parliament, it is pretty confidently stated, will he supported by those Members who arc officially and individually attached to a very high Personage. The force ordered to proceed to tile Tagus has been augmented to nearly 10 000 infantry, a part of which are now embarking at Portsmouth, under Major- Gen. oral Stewart, and another division is to be embarked at Cork ; more cavalry are also to be sent out, of which the 13th Light Dragoons, which has been doing tbe King's duty in the vicinity of Wiudsor, is one regiment under orders.

Bonaparte remains at Trianon, making but short and not frequent visits to Paris. He has not been once to tbe Theatre since that precious farce played before Cambaccres at the Thuillrries. He would have it sup- posed, perhaps, that grief for having parted with the dearest object of his affections keeps him in the retire- ment of Trianon: but a more natural cause may be found in his wish not to encounter the looks of the Parisians, who are disposed to puns and pasquinades, so soon al ter a scene- of such exquisite ridicule and absurd- ity. The new partner - of his Throne is not yet known. " it is reported to have been arranged, after the peace of Til it, between Napoleon and the Kmperor Alex ander, that a marriage should take jdaoe between the former and the sister of the latter; - but this Princess is said to have positively refused the honour thus intended for her. That the Gold Coin of this country has been accu- mulated for the purpose of exportation is now an unquestionable fact, and any hint which can prove in- strumental in abolishing so injurious a traffic, it is the, duty of every individual to communicate. A Com- mercial Correspondent writes on the subject as follows : —" My avocations leading me constantly to the coast, I have ascertained that scarcely a fishing boat leaves our shores without a freight of guineas, under the pretence of purchasing turbot, ffor which purpose a comparatively small stun would be adequate) and dis- 1 pose of their more valuable cargo to our enemies." Swindling. — A few days since a genteel- looking fellow, calling himself Thomas Mandeville, went to the Shakespeare Tavern, Plymouth, and got on the blind side of the landlord, hv informing him that he had a cargo of oats hourly expected from Waterford, and produced samples, bill of lading, Ac. * in fact, every thing appeared so correct, that Mr. Boniface, in ex pectation of a good customer did not hesitate to accom- modate him with board and lodging, anew great coat, & c. In the mean time the pret#* idcd merchant went constantly to the Custom- house to ascertain the arrival of the Atatanta, the ship which was said to have the cargo on board. At length the arrival of the supposed Captaiu was announced, and the natural inquiries re- specting the state of the cargo, & r. made, to which suitable answers being returned, nothing remained but to drink success to the sale of the cargo. } n the midst of their festivity, a gentleman from Trematon hap- pened to drop in, ami being shown the sample, readily became a purchaser of the cargo; but the ship haviug been represented to have had an unusually tedious voyage, and the crew, inconsequence, reduced to short allowance, an advance ol cash was proposed to re- victual the ship ; which being acceded to, and the time and place of delivery appointed, they took their de parture, leaving the host and purchaser to contemplate each other on their imaginary bargains '. It surprized many of our readers to hear of the non- chalance with which Bonaparte dissolved his marriage, without any recurrence to the forms of the church, or dispensation from its Head. The l'act is, that bis mar- riage was contracted during the period when marriages . were considered in France as mere civil contracts. The parties went before a . Municipal Officer, and were there registered as man and wife, without taking any oath, FRIDAY, JANUARY 5. The sub ject which lias occupied so much of the pub- lic attention for several days, namely, the alarming state of affairs in India, still requires much elucidation: it is hoped, that the reports which have been afloat will bo found to have been exaggerated. Some of the Ministerial Writers even go so far as to assert that the great changes which it is said had been meditated in tbe military government ot the country, are not to take place. Lord Wellington, it is added, will retain his situation in Portugal. It is very certain, however, that the general state of our affairs in India, in conse- quence of the dispute between the military and civil Powers at Madras, is highly alarming ; and that it has attracted theserious attention of his Majesty's Ministers. The owners of the ships now preparing to sail for India Jhavc received instructions to provide accommodations for the conveyance of 3,000 troops. Some changes in the Government of the several Presidencies will, we are assured, be carried into effect. The successors have not. been meutiqned. A dispatch from the Governor and Supreme Council of Bengal, directed to Sir George Harlow, but really addressed lo the British army at the Madras Presidency, on the subject of the disorders which have there taken place, has been published. The general principles laid down in this lengthened document are so clear, that they cannot by us be enforced or illustrated : their application to the existing case is, we apprehend, equally just. The case of the remonstrating Officers will, we trust, meet with due attention, if it involves any hardships. It is understood that Prince Staliremberg, accom- panied by his two Secretaries, who are to proceed on a mission to Paris, had yesterday a conference with the Marquis Wellesley, anil the Chancellor of the Exche- quer, at the Foreign Office ; and, from this simple fact, il is argued that something like a negociation between this country and France is carrying- on. It is certainly reasonable to suppose that these frequent communications relate to something more than the business of the Austrian Embassy in London, which, ft was supposed had terminated with the late Peace of Vienna. Ships- continue to arrive from Holland in immense numbers; between SO and 90 arrived on Wednesday. The greatest alarm continues to prevail throughout that unfortunate country, in consequence of the expected changes in its Government. Some of the letters state, that Louis is expected very soon to return to Amster- dam ^ but we should think lie would not return to ahnounce his own dismission, unless Bonaparte should conceive that his brother's popularity in Holland is sufficient to reconcile the Dutch to the intended change. The Captain of a Dutch vessel from Helvoet, however, ilates that when he sailed it was still believed that King Louis would return to Amsterdam, and the citizens were extremely anxious for his return, to obtain from him some authentic information with regard to their future destiny. A ship from " New York lias arrived at Liverpool, which has brought some letters of a very recent date. In one of these, to a respectable quarter, it is stated that the Embargo Laws were to be resumed on the 3d of last month. It is supposed that there are now above • 100 vessels in the ports of America that will be liable to the restriction, should it " be the tact that the measure has been carried into execution. The Duke of Richmond, it is reported, has been, with great address, but with some difficulty, prevailed on to yield his pretensions to the blue ribbon, in favour of Marquis Wellesley.— The vacant red ribbon is to be given to Gen. Don, who, wc regret to hear-, has been dangerously ill since his return from Walcheren. Lord Howe is so severely indisposed that his recovery is despaired of. Common Council.— II is said to be the intention of the Opposition party in the Common Council, headed by Mr. Waithman, at the meeting on Tuesday next, to go not only into the question of his Majesty's Answer to their Address, but also to enquire into the cause why the Address from the Common Hall was not received upon the Throne. It had been customary to receive the Petitions until Alderman Wilkes's mayoralty, when it was refused; and tliey were informed, that his Majesty would in future receive them at the Levee. The Livery, however, have from that time to the pre- sent continued to assert this right, and refused to- pre- sent their Petitions in any other manner. At the last Common Hall they so far waived the right, as merely to direct the. Lord Mayor and Sheriffs to present the Petition to his Majesty ; conceiving, no doubt, that his Majesty would either receive it at the Levee, or grant, as had been usual, a personal audience to the Lord Mayor and Sheriffs, liven this, however, has now been refused ; and the Sheriffs have been informed, by the Secretary of State, that the Petition would be re- ceived only through his office. In 1775, Sir William Plomer, then Sheriff, had a personal audience, and read the Resolutions of the Common Hall to his Majesty. In 1707, Sir S. Langston and Sir W. Staines, Sheriffs, received the same information as that which has now been given by the Secretary of State; but they were sent back to the King, and directed to demand a per- sonal audience, which thev obtained, and read to his Majesty the Resolutions ot* the Hall. In 1800, Alder- men Perring and Cadell went to Weymouth, and ob- tained a personal audience iu like manner. By the mode which it is now attempted to establish, the whole right of petitioning may be rendered useless, and the Bill of Rights become a dead letter. What security, indeed, can the people have, when they complain of the misconduct of the servants of the Crown, that those complaints will reach the ear of tbe Sovereign, if they are in this manner lo pass thro' the hands of those very servants ? It will detract nothing from tint respect, though it may abate somewhat of the admiration, with which the Persian Ambassador is viewed, to know that tbe ridiculous stories which have been spread abroad of the multiplicity of his family are wholly without foundation! He is married to a near relation of the Queen of Persia, and has but enechild. He is nephew to Hajee Ibrahim, late Prime Minister of Persia, to whom the present King is indebted for the Throne, and who was one of the. ablest men that Persia ever produced. The present King of Persia, has fifty- six sons; and hence, perhaps, has arisen the mistake in ascribing the offspring of the Sovereign to. his Representative. FHOM THE LONDON GAZETTE. Admiral Lord Gambier has transmited to John Wilson Croker, Esq. a letter from the Hon. Captain Bouverie, of his Majesty's ship Medusa, stating the capture of the French privateer L'Aventure, of Bourdeaux, of 14 guns and S2 men ; the had sailed from that port on the preceding day, and had not made any capture. Carlton House, January 3,— The Prince of Wales has been pleased to appoint the Rev. William M'Bonnell, M. A. to be one- of his Royal Highness's Chaplains in Ordinary. SATURDAY, JANUARY 6. Some Dutch papers arrived at a late hour this day, from which the following extract is made: " Amsterdam, December 20.— The Moniteur contains the following paragraph;-- After the fall of Gerona, nothing re- mains either in the East or West of Spain, which can KIVC any effectual opposition to the progress of the victorious forces of ais Majesty the Fmperor. The paltry, fortress of Cerida can- not resist a siege of three weeks, and nobody knows where to lind the boasted army of Blake. In Madrid, the inmost j > y prevails, and the love of tbe people seems fixed and decided. His Majesty the King has raised a body guard of Spaniards, who are zealous in his service and ardent in their attachment. The English army, as before, remains doing nothing at Bada- jos. The English boasted that Lord Wellington was au active enterprizing officer, but, like General Chatham, lie. uow items fast asleep." ' The Secretaries of the Austrian Ambassador left town yesterday morning for Dover, in order to embark for Calais. Paris Papers to the £ 6th ult. have been received. One of thein contains a letter from Nismes, ( the place whence the first account of Lord Collingwood's last vie lory'was received), stating, that a heavy Cannonade, which continued four hours, wis heard at Aiguemortes on the 13th December.— We hope therefore soon to hear of another engagement having taken place in that quarter. An article from Constantinople, in the Moniteur, mentions a report of a truce for three months hetween Russia and Turkey. This, if true, has been brought about by Bonaparte, probably in order to give him time to make such arrangements as he chuses respecting Turkey. Nearly fiftv vessels reached our ports yesterday from Holland 1 It is a singular phenomenon, that the ships of America and Holland should be obliged to seek, in the harbours of this country, protection from the oppression of their own rulers. One half of the troops at first proposed to be sent to the reinforcement of the army in Portugal, and whose destination was subsequently changed to India, arc, we understand, now to be sent to North America, for the purpose of improving our means of defence in that vulnerable quarter. An opinion is now circulated, that, after all, it is not intended to incorporate the whole of Holland with France; but only that portion ol territory which lies on the left side of the Maize. postscript. LonD0. Y, Monday Wight, January 9, 1910. The Eclipse sloop which is arrived at Plymouth, spoke on Friday an English frigate, having under her convov three homeward- bound East- Indiamen. They bring the intelligence of the surrender of the Isle of Bourbon to a British naval and military force— Two French frigates and two East Indiamen, it is added, were found in the harbour. In addition to the foregoing intelligence Government has been informed by a Gentleman who came passenger in the Earl Spencer, which, with the Monarch and Lord Keith and their convoy the P.- incess Charlotte, are arrived in the Downs, that on the 21st of September, the town and garrison of St. Paul's in the Isle of Boil r bon, were taken by our cruising squadron, under Com- modore Rowley, in the Boadicia, with the Sirius and Nereid frigates, and the Otter sloop, assisted by a party of the 50th regiment, and some Bombay sepoys, under Lieutenant- Colonel Keating, of the 56th.— When the town had surrendered, there were found in the roads and taken possession of, the French frigate Caroline, of 4S guns, the Streatham, and Europa, regular East Indiamen, a small privateer, formerly the Grappler gun- brig, with several other small vessels, the whole of which had arrived at the Cape, except the Europa, which hail been sent to Bombay. The Nereid had arrived at the Cape with the Captain of the Caroline, and one hundred and sixty French prisoners— No Eng lish Officer was killed in the capture of St. Paul's. The Isle of France, it is supposed, has ere this, shared the fate of the Isle of Bourbon, and Guadaloupe is probably no longer a French possession— The enemy will then not have a single colonial possession in any part of the, world— And Bonaparte may, with truth, say, that he has no longer either " ships, colonies, or commerce." This morning arrived two Cadiz and two Lisbon Mails, bringing Seville Papers to the date of Dec. 1G, and Lisbon Diaries to the 23d. The most important article they contain is the notice addressed by Lord Wellington of the movement which he has found it necessary to make to the North of the Tagus. The letter, as given in the Seville Gazette, leaves us in some doubt whether be is proceeding to Portugal or to a more northern situation in Spain. Looking to late events, and to the language used by his Lordship, we guess the former, as he appears to take a formal leave of the Junta of Estremadura. Marquis Romana, Don Rodrigo Roquetini, and Don J. G. Rios Rabe, were selected by the Supreme Junta, as Commissioners to reorganize the army of la Mancha. Marquis Romana, probably convinced of the inutility of such a measure, declined the task, and the Marquis of Campo Sagrado was chosen in his stead. " Some alarm appears to prevail for the safely of Oporto, in consequence of the late movements on the East bank of the Donro. The private letters from Lisbon, received by the Walsuigwam packet, arc very gloomy. These represent our army of the interior as lather sickly, and the people of the country as very discontented. A Cartel arrived from Morlaix on Friday night with dispatches, it is said, for Ministers, which reached town yesterday, it i « again rumoured that propositions of a pacific natara have been made from the French Go- vernment. Dispalches have been sent to Falmouth, for Mr. Jackson, at New York, They are directed to be forwarded by the Eliza packet, which had previously been appointed for Jamacia, and was in readiness toi sail at an hour's notice. The Chesterfield will take the mail to Jamaica, as soon as she is ready for sea. Three per (' out Consols'. AW — SHREWSBURY, Wednesday^ January 10, 1810. Messers.

As a farmer, it may be truly said, he was an ornament to his country, by his unwearied industry in good husbandly; aud he supported through life the character of a peaceable, honest man. On the 20th November last, of a consumption, in an obscure dwelling in Halifax, and in circumstances of extreme distress, Mrs. Standevens, aged 30. The Short history of this accom- plished and unfortunate young woman is painfully interesting, and full of instruction to female youth. Eliza Evans was the only child of the Rev. Mr. Evans, of Malpas, in Cheshire. She lost her mother at the early age of five years, and ten years afterwards was bereft of her father. The interval be- tween these two deprivations was spent in the best school* which Chester afforded. In addition to her native language, she became mistress of the French and Italian, excelled in music and drawing, and attained eminence io the variety of fancy- work. At the age of 15 she was sent for from school to attend the death- bed of her father, who left her a small pro- perty, to which Lord Cholmondeley added tbe life- interest of theleaiehold property possessed by her father, estimated at from 601. to 101. per annum. Young, accomplished, and in some degree independent, by one imprudent act she plunged herself into embarrassmeuts, which ended only with her life. At this period she became acquainted with Mr. Standerens, a young man of 23, the hero at that time of the Shrewsbury theatre, and of no mean celebrity. They met at n musical party. They were both musical. At the age of 16, whilst in mourning for her father, she became a wife; at 11, a mother. Her history is now soon told. Her life was what may be seen in the green- room of every provincial theatre. Her talents nnd form were not adapted to the stage. She did not rise above very subordinate parts in the theatre. She dressed her face with smiles and her person with finery, to enable her to still the clamorous craving, and clothe the nakedness of six poor children at home Mr. Standevens's long sickness destroyed his only means of helping liis wife and children, and the leasehold property, the gift of Lord Chol- mondeley, had been disposed of. — About twoyeaisago, bow- ever, death removed poor Standevens from the contemplation of poverty and suffering, which he could not alleviate. Mrs. S. endeavoured to retain her station on the stage, hut in vain. On foot, with her children, in rags and wretchedness, she tra- velled from Tidiwell, in Derbyshire, in search of her hus- band's parish. About a year ago, whilst on this route, she arrived at Halifax. Here they were supported by a small allowance from the parish— by her needle— by her teaching a few scholars— by the kindness of their relations— and by the casual bounty of the charitable. Her health was now under- mined by disease ; and a few days before her death she was admitted a home patient of the Halifax General Dispensary, and relieved from the fund of the Benevolent Society, by the visitor of the district in which she lived. She was perfectly aware of her approaching dissolution; and her dying words were, " 1 bequeath my children to God, and resign myself into his hands!" Five destitute orphans survive her, two daughters of the ages, of 12 and 10, and three boys of the ages of 13, 4, and 2 yeats ; the sixth child died five years ago. It is particularly desirable to prevent the girls from being sent to the workhouse of their parish, and to save them from the dan- gers incident to their sex. To effect this purpose, and to fit them out for service, contributions are now solicited at Halifax, and will be received at tbe OFFICE OF THIS PAPER. Kj- We are requested to state, that those parts of the nar- rative of the above case, relating to the deceased having been a ward of the late Sir Thomas Edwardes, of Frodeslev, iu this county, and her having resided with Ladv Edwardes, ( ex- cepting occasionally on a visit) as published Iu many of the London and provincial papers, is founded in mistake. Visiting Clergyman this week at the Infirmary, the Rev. Mr. Blakeway :— House Visitors, Mr J. Betton, and Mr. R. Williamson. Additional Subscriber to the Public Subscription Charily School. Dr. DuGard .£ 1 1 0. The three remaining bodies of the unfortunate men who were drowned a short time since near this town, have been found since our last. We are gratified to state that the exertions of individuals in procuring sub- scriptions for their surviving relatives have been attended with considerable success; and strangers, accidentally passing Ihro' the town, have swelled the list by very bountiful donations — one lady has given a pound note, and another half a guinea. Among other extraordinary effects of the absence of winter from this climate, a blackbird's nest, with five eggs in it, was found on Christmas- day last, at Newtown, in the parish of Wem, in this county.— A bat, emerged from its torpid state, was observed " flying about several evenings during the last week, at a village iu Worcester- shire.— A magpie's nest, with two eggs, was discovered at Thames Ditton, on the 31st ult. on whicn the old bird was sitting. The Hon. Robert Clive, was presented to his Majesty at the levee on Wednesday last, by his father the Earl of Powis, upon his going lo Spain: and Mr. Charles Oakeley, son of Sir Charles Oakeley, Bart, as Secretary of Legation to the United States, upon his return to England. Thursday last, Hannah Shone, and Thomas Shone, her son, weic committed by tbe magistrates of this town for trial at the next assizes, on a charge of uttering forged Bank of Eugland notes, knowing them to be forged.— Same day a person was convicted of striking a man with a poker, and fined 10s. which was distributed in bread to t! ie poor of the parish of St. Julian. The company of Barber Chirurgeons of this town, at a meeting held yesterday, came to a resolution that in future they will not work on Sundays. A Walking match for live guineas took place on Wednesday last, between Mr. Ford and Mr. Bourkc, both of Wellington, from the mile- stone at Overley- h: ll to the mile- Stone at Emstrey turnpike, a distance of 6 miles, which was performed in 3 minutes under an hour by the former, leaving his rival about 8 yards behind. A very daring robbery was committed by three foot- pads on the person of Mr John Wilson, on New Bridge, in the neighbourhood of Newport in the morning of Friday se'ennight; oue of them seized his horse, while the other two rifled his pockets of bills to a considerable amount. A reward of SO guineas is offered f or the dis- covery of the offenders. Extraordinary large Herefordshire Ox.— This re- markably fine animal, ( mentioned in a former Paper to have been exhibited at the last Agricultural Meeting for the above county), was slaughtered, a few days since, by Mr. R. Burrow, butcher, of Hereford, and attracted the notice of a number of amateurs. The four quarters weighed 144 stone lOlbs. or 36 stone » " « -- — 1 - •< Bibs. - o ov 2 Jibs, cadi, on the average; the hide 11 stone and the fat 18 stone 6lbs. When split, in the parting of the quarters, the depth of fat was 5 inches; on the brisket, inches; on the catch of the rump, 7i inches ; and the inside of the. ribs was larded 3 inches iu fat. From the rump to the neck measured 8 teet 3 inches ; the breadth across the hips was 3 feet; and the girth of the carcase was 8 feet 6 inches. It. was bred bv Mr. Hudson, of Horn ; and fed by his Grace the Duke of Norfolk on grass and hay only. Accident.— The very large and remarkable centre chandelier in the Assembly room at Worcester, owing to the breaking of the chain by w hich it w as suspended, fell to the ground in the forenoon of Thursday last, and was shattered to pieces. It is considered a for- tunate circumstance, that this casualty took place an- tecedent to the arrival of a very numerous company ; for had it chanced to have been delayed a few hours, the consequences might have been more disastrous. IMPOSTOR. — Caution to Clergymen. — There is a person travelling from the north towards London, who appears about 40 years of age, about five feet, seven inches high, is thin, and of dard complexion ; calls him- self a minister of the Kirk of Scotland— exhibits a testi- monial from the celebrated grammarian, Lindley Mur- ray, stating his superior attainments in parsing and ana- lysing the English language, & c. says his name is D. M. Mickelwell, and solicits relief of the clergy to enable him to go to London, where he hopes to obtain employ- ment. & c. A clergyman, in the neighbourhood of Wolverhampton, suspecting him to be au impostor, wrote to L. Murray, aud has received his answer. L. Murray gave him half- a- guinea, but did not see him, nor did he give any testimonial. A Jew was on Saturday convicted in London of selling 56 guineas for Is. 6d. each more than their cur- rent value. This crime is felony by a statute of Queen Elisabeth.— Another quantity of guineas, half- guineas, and seven shilling pieces, has been seiied in the port of Lynn, ready packed for sending abroad. | Srt. ru. swindlers an lid W travelling the country, en deavouring to pass bills, drawn apparently by respect- ahl- bodies in Manchester, Stockport, Halifax, & c. but which are found to be either forgeries, or filled up with names that have no existence. Dr. A. Feme, late Dean of Ely, happening one day to call a Clergyman a fool, who, in fact, was little other- wise, the latter threatened to complain to the Bishop— " Do," replied the Dean, " whenever you please, and his Lordship will confirm you." It is a whimsical observation*. but nevertlh> l<£ K true, that the word devil, shorten it as you please, will still retain a bad signification, dcuf, evil, vil, if; and it but too often happens that give Satan an inch and he will take an I. Beavers.— A gentleman in the county of Tipperary has,' as an object of curiosity as well as pleasure, under- taken to establish in his park, a colony ot* these animals. He has planted plenty, of birch, aspen, ash, willow, sallow, osier, alder, & c. round the ponds, mid is about to procure several pair of beavers to turn in, .. Anecdote. — Mrs. Stokes a lady now resident m England, was at school with the repudiated Empress Josephine. During the short interval of peace in 1801, she visited France, and . Madame Bonaparte having ex- pressed a wish lo have a private interview with he- early friend, Airs. S. was introduced. After the usual congratulations, they began to discourse with freedom on the occurrences of their youthful days, and Madame B. anxiously enquired of . Mrs. Stokes if she rccollectci hearing her future destiny predicted by a fortune- teller while she was at school ? Mrs. S. replied in the affirm- ative.—" And pray, my dear Madanr, what, as nearly as you can remember, were his words ?"—" He'said you would sit upon a throne 1" " Was that all?" eagerly asked Madame B.— Mrs. Stokes, who knew the sequel to be unfavourable, hesi'ated, and said she did not re- collect any thing else. " Alas! / do," exclaimed Ma dam > B. " he said that I should sit upon a throne, but that I should die in a work- bouse : aud since the first part of his prediction has been nearly accomplished, I hive most anxiously dreaded the fulfilment of the res;."'— This anecdote is well known iu tlie fashionable world, and we can vouch for its authenticity. Thosp who contemplate her recent degradation, must allow there is a probability that the unfortunate Josephine's apprehensions will finally bo fulfilled.— Satirist. Silver Coin.— On tbe 14th ult. 38 casks of dollars, part of thoie transmitted, some time s nee, from Lon- don, to be stamped at the Soho Manufactory, near Birmingham, amounting to the sum of £ 50,000. were delivered to the custody of persons appointed to receive them, and sent by Canal Conveyance to the Metropolis, where they arrived the ensuing week. And. on the 22d, a similar sum was dispatched by the same medium. MARKET HERALD. Average price of Grain in our Market on Satur- day last—- Wheat 16s. Barley 10s. Orf.—^ Peas 9s.

IN Support of liis political Creed, the Conductor of this Paper is determined to be firm and manly ; Truth shall be his Guide- post, Impartiality his chosen Track, and Justice the. Goal of his F. abours.— He will never become the venal Tool of any Administration, or the hireling Defender of official Delinquents, however elevated their Station; nor will he support the Clamours of Opposition with a blind and indiscriminate Zeal. Wherever Merit claims the Meed of Praise, he will most aladly bestiw it— MEASURES not MEN being his Object; and to wilful Misconduct or flagrant Corruption he will ever freelv apply the Lash of Censure. On every Subject, Foreign or Domestic, where he hazards an Opinion, that Opinion shall be free, candid* and unwarped by party Prejudice. In short, the Proprietor of The. Chester Herald enters fairly upon the Field of professional and literary Competition, and only claims a Share of public Patronage proportioned to the Satis- faction he hopes to afford,— Happy, . superlatively happy, would hi; feel himself, if The Chester Herald; at the Commence- ment of its Career, should be enabled to proclaim a Restoration of the Blessings of Peace to an'impoverished and, anftering World; but, alas I he fears that much- wished- fbr Epoch is yet far distant.

TO THE EDITOR. Sin— Having lately read an account of the process used in curing that afflicting and dreadful malady, the tooth- ache, performed on his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, at Brighton, I trust for the information of your numerous readers, you will give publicity to the following:— Take a clean tobacco- pipe ; place the bowl of it ini the fire till red- hot; put two or three pinches of henpane- seed * into the bowl; over which put the broad part of a common funnel— the tube of the fun- nel against the tooth affected, so that the smoke arising from the seed may enter. As often as the pipe gets " cold, heat it afresh, and put in more seed s continue this for about a quarter of an hour; and the pain, if not allayed immediately, will soon cease. This, Sir, is a certain curc for that most distressing pain, which is so often felt by the inhabitants of this: country'more than any other. The steed may be got at any seed- shop, and two- pen- ; nyworthof it will serve for twenty people. Care should be taken, that'the person, after the performance of this operation, does not. take cold; in order to prevent this, it had better be performed shortly before the person retires to rest ; and It is a question whether he ever will be afflicted with the tooth- ache again, at least for some years.— It is the opinion of some of the first den- tists ( although they publicly ridicule this process, know- ing its effi'cacy), that, were itregularly performed every month, the teeth of the person so making use of this remedy would never decay, or be in any manner afflic- ted with pain. I am, Sir, Your very obedient Servant, Jan. 1,1310. A. Y. T. * This W8S the seed which cured his Royal Highness. CHRONOLOGICAL SKETCH Of the most remarkable events of the year 1809. JANUARY. 5.

Covent Garden, Verdict for ported on the one 9ide by theBishop of Salisbury, and on the other by- the Dean of Westminster ;• and it was truly gratifying to see these venerable characters, as it were, arrayed in the cause of literature and benevolence; and by their eloquence and liberal example, pleading in favonr of decayed Schoolmasters and their Families. Many other eminent characters were present, and thy Subcriplions to the Charity were far greater than on any former occasion. Mr. Hammersley, the distin- guished friend of this Institution, addressed the Meeting with great effect, statiug certain benevolent actions of the Society, which first induced him to become an ad- vocate in its cause. He dwelt with great force on the benefits likely to result to the public, tVom a proper encouragement ot the instructors of the rising genera- tion ; that important class of men who, in a great mea- sure, have within their power the formation and direction of the public mind. This statement was received with high admiration and applause, and the meeting requested that it might be printed. Another very impressive document was produced by Mr. Hammersley, namely a list of nearly sixty new subcribers, procured hy him since the last meeting, among whom were his Grace the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Lord Bishops of Salisbury, the Dean of Canterbury, the Right Honourable Spencer Perceval, the Honourable Gene- ral Fitzroy, Mr. Whitbread, Mr. Coke of Norfolk, Mr. Wilberforce, Colonel Taylor, Sir Robert Wilson, Sir Sidney Smith, & c. S> c. The latter Gentleman was pre- sent at the meeting, and his neat and appropriate speech was much admired, when his health was given, as the Defender of Acre, by the Worthy Dean of Westminster. Many other excellent speeches were delivered by the President, Vice- President, and other Officers of the Society; also by Dr. Hutton, and the Rev. W. Draper, whose eloquent harangue in praise of the institution, and of its benevolent and persevering founders, met with distinguished applause. Several admirable songs were sung by professional gentlemen and others; and the day was spent with great conviviality, and with a dignity and decorum becoming the character and ob- ject of the meeting. The French A'u vy. — The following is a correct statement of the French Naval Force in the Mediter- ranean ; it was found on board one of the ships taken by Lord Collingwood, on the 25th of October:— Guns. ( Admiral Gantheanme, Chef Dock. It raged with great violence, and soon spread to Mr. Aker's timberyard, clo- e to the former pre-* mises. Here it unhappily found plenty of materials to promote its fury. Mr. Pocock's property was en- tirely destroyed, except one book of accounts. Mrs. Pocock was in bed when the flames broke out, and hud but just lime to escape with hardly any covering. From Mr. Aker's premises, which were entirely consumed, the fire soon extendod to the granaries of Messrs. Thompson, Robinson, and Co. where it was destructive to a considerable amount. Two houses adjoining these premises were materially injured, though not totally destroyed. No lives were lost by the fire itself", but it is apprehended that some persons, who incautiously stood near a pile of timber, were driven, when it fell, by the efforts of the vast multitude of spectators that attended, into Whitefriars Dock, and were immediately j suffocated. There is, however, no proof at present that this calamity realty happened. Of the deals, 15,000 are said to have been burnt. Of the horses iu the stables, 18 in all, about 6 or 7 were saved— the rest perished in the flames. Two or. three empty barges caught fire, and were damaged— the dwelling houses, and all the premises are reduced to ashes. Anecdote of the late Earl of Bristol, Bishop of Derry.— III his Lordship's journeys from Ireland to London, he, at one time, turned into a bookseller's shop, where he purchased books to a considerable amount. He saw, lying upon the counter the second edition of Hon lands'. i Mona Antiqua, which his Lord- ship said he wished he had seen, before he passed through Anglesey, as he thought it a curious book. The bookseller said, " that if his Lordship had seen the first edition, he would have thought it still more curi ous." He asked," why so ?"— The bookseller answered, " because in that edition his Lordship would have been gratified in seeing a map of the Isle of Anglesey, as it appeared before Noah's Flood." His Lordship Am eric J.—' There is a material difference between Mr. Smith's letter and the President's speech. In the latter it is asserted that his Majesty ought to have abi- ded bv the arrangement of Mr. Erskine, and that, no ratification was in the contemplation of either of the Governments, pj was necessary — an assertion, with all deference to the American President,, idle, and puerile, livery act or arrangement made by a Minister,, is sub- ject to the ratification of his Government. Vattel ex- pressly says, that '* every arrangement made by the Mi- nister remains invalid till sanctioned by the Prince's ratification," and " that the Plenipotentiary's commis- sion is but a procuration cum libera." Mr. Smith, however, the American Secretary, does uot say that his Majesty was bound to abide by Mr. Erskine's arrange- ment— he does not complain of his Majesty's having disavowed the act of his Minister — and by his silence upon the subject admits that it was an act subject to his Majesty's ratification. This point is well pressed hy Mr. Jackson, who, with some ingenuity, compliments Mr. Smith upon the candour which induced him to for- bear from nuking any such, complaint; for " you could not but have thought it unreasonable," adds Mr. J. " to complain of tne disavowal of an act dene under such circumstances, as could only lead to the consequences that have actually followed." Mr. Jackson then proceeds to the subject upon which there has been so much discussion, viz. whether Mr. Erskine had communicated to the American Govern- ment his original instructions in extenso. He did not. But he submitted to their consideration the three con- ditions which were specified in those instructions as the ground- work of an arrangement. These three condi- tions were commented upon at great length, by the American Secretary, who thought others might be sub- stituted in lieu of thein. So thought Mr. Erskine also — and others were substituted. But the very substitu- tion shews that the original conditions were made Majestio Austerlitz - 120 120 Commerce de Paris 120 Donawert - Ulm - Danube Brevlau Suffrein Genois Magnanime Ajax Hannibal Penelope Poinone Pauline Amelia Proserpine Incorruptible Thamise Victorieuse Adrian IA Noume La Baleme Durana 80 74 74 74 74 74 74 74 74 40 40 40 40 40 40 38 1 | Now building at Toulon. de I'Etat Major Duranteau j Premier Adjutant Volsin. ^ Capitaine Violet.

The great Catholic Counties of Ireland are rapidly coming forward to Petition the Legislature for the removal of the disabilities affecting that body ; Tip- perary, Cork, aud Limerick, have already petitioned separately, and appointed Committees. The County of Clare will meet on Thursday the 4th of January, for a similar purpose. Great exertions are making in every department of France to produce substitutes for sugar, and prizes are daily offered by tbe various economical societies of the Continent, for the discovery of the most proper material for that purpose. The saccharine matter of the grape has been the chief subject of the recent experiments of the French chemists. Several German, artists have of late' turned their at- tention to the art of painting on glass. Professor Frick, of Berlin, has made great improvements in the burning of pictures in glass, and has recently finished a beautiful paiuted window tor the Catholic church in that city.— M. Bushier, of Urech, in Wirtemburg, also burns colours in glass so exquisitely, that his works are not to be distinguished from the best of the ancieuts. The expressed juice of the Barberry has been some time used at Issoudun, department of India, in dying. 1' he root of the plant boiled in water gives a beautiful green, applicable to goat aud sheep- skins. A fossil palm- tree has recently been found above a strata of plaster at Bagnolet, near Paris. It was depo sited in the earthy strata, about la or 15 feet above the first stratum of plaster. A tree of the same species was a few years since discovered in a similar situation at Montmartre.

The American Government appear to have attempted to get rid of this charge by a kind of shuffle. — They conceived Mr. Erskine to have two sets of instructions, one of w hich he had shewii, and the other- he h id not— that upon the latter was to be rested his justification of the arrangement entered into. Mr. Jackson gives the most positive contradic- tion to the assertion relative to the two sets of instruc- ; tions, and indeed it never could have been seriously , believed by the American Government. As to the question of carrying on the discussions in- a verbal 0r written form, so much dwelt upon by Mr. Smith in his second let er, we conceive it to he unwor- thy ol the consideration which Mr. Jackson thought proper to give it. Indeed, that Gentleman, though' lie protested against the line • prescribed by Mr. Smith in this instance, expressly acquiesced in it, on account of the detriment that might ensue from a suspension of his ministerial functions, whilst he consulted his Court upon the occurrence. sai l, I think Mr. , that you would be as well pleased to see me come again into your shop, as any Bishop you have seen a good while.— I will send my servant over to pay your bill, and to bring me the hooks.— His Valet came in a short time ; when the bookseller observed to him, " that as his Lordship had purchased Pennant's Journey in Wales, 1st volume, his folio edition of Zoology coloured, aud the history of the Isle of Anglesey, w ith other Welsh topographical books, that he was going to travel into Wales,"— he answered, " his Lordship has just been through ali North Wales, to search if he could find a more dreary, unfrequented spot to build a house upon, than the place in Ireland, where he bas laid out ten or fifteen thousand pouuds, in erecting one, and now it is finished, i believe he never means to see it again. We, his servants, have a saying, that there are three difierent sorts of beings iu this world— Men, Women, and Hern veys, for in his return to town he will pass within a few miles distance of his family mansion, where are his countess and several beautiful daughters, and he will not take the trouble to call to see them." Revenge beyond the Grave.— The dreadful effects of party- spirit may be seen from the following circum- • The body of Francis Bryans, a member of an But with regard to the principal lance :- The of, aud materiaI ^ Mr. Smith hlmwff ^ s st: cond Orange Lodge, which was interred tn the church- yard , ctfer> ht- \ t<) „ fair • obse vin" „ n a high of Eniskeen, in the county of Cavan, on Tuesday, the | anthoritv ntMir ,! lw 21st November, was, on the night ot the same day, raised out of its grave, the ends of the coffin knocked out, the corpse mangeled and abused, and thrown out of u[ c i 1 1 ™ uiu, in tins l] the church- yard over the wall into, a river.

Mr. Smith is therefore driven buried with the compliments usual on such an occasion. , • u! cretorf" 1 , .'— Allowing circumfer- i « >? t the explanation the for the Keeper, ot the Theatre Royal, Covent the Plaintiff <£ 5. — Accounts received of the surrender of the Islands of Zante, Cephalonia, Ithaca, and Cerigo to his Majesty's arms; under tbe command of Brigadier General Oswald. 10.

Society of Schoolmasters.— The Anniversary of the Society of Schoolmasters, was held a few days ago at the Crown and Anchor Tavern, in the Strand, the Right Rev. the Lord Bishop of Carlisle was in the Chair, sup- Mix soft soap with starch powdered, half as much, salt, and the juice of a lemon, lay it on the spots on both sides with a painter's brush. Let it lay on the grass day and night tilt the marks disappear. On Wednesday, at Bow- street, Richard Wright, alias Black Dick, was charged with being concerned with, Stockton aud Edwards in robbing the Whitehaven Bank of notes to the amount of £ 14,000. for which they were executed about a month since, at Carlisle, and for which a bill was found against Wright, who was appre- hended at Birmingham, but broke out of gaol. He is also suspected of being the murderer of Mr. Begbie, the agent of the British Linen Company, at Edinburgh, who was robbed of at 12,000. He is likewise suspected of being concerned with his brother in robbing the warehouse of Messrs. Crosby and Wight, at Westbury, of cloth to the amount of £ 900. for which crime lie was apprehended, but escaped in his shirt, by the aid of his bed- clothes, from the window, at the Black Lion Inn, at Exeter, having first tied the money produced hy his share of the booty in a handkerchief round his head. The Bow- street Officers had been for some time on the look- out for him, in consequence of informatioB of his having arrived in town; and on Sunday, Adkins, with his brother and Anthony, saw him walking in the Kent Road with two others; and, as he had declared he never would be taken without murder, the former contrived to seizo his arms, and hold him in that stale till the other two took charge of him, when he went after his companions, but they contrived to escape.— In the interim Wright made several efforts to escape, as also to get his hands into his breeches pockets, in which were two loaded pistols, but on Adkins returning he beat him over the legs with a thick stick, till he submitted to be bound. He was committed for re- examination. Fire.— An alarming fire broke out on Monday night at Mr. Pocock's, coal- merchant, adjoining Whitefriars A curious Calculation !— Allowing the cir ence of the Earth to be 25,000 miles, as it is well known to be, nearly, the whole surface is equal to 198,943,750 square miles. It is said that about one- fifth part only of this surface is inhabitable by human beings ; but we will suppose one half of it, 99,471, M5 square miles to ' be inhabitable: this is equal to 2773H6720000000 square feet. The number of humau beings occupying this extensive territory, at present, is estimated at 1000,000000. N'ow suppose this population to double every fifty years, a supposition 1 think nowise unrea- sonable, provided that all wars should cease, and no extraordinary pestilence, or other calamity, happen to carry the people off; then, at the end of a 101) 0 years this number would be increased to 524288000000000. Divide the number of square feet, given above, by this last great number, and the quotient will be 54 feet, nearly, or a little more than half a yard of ground for each individual to live upon. ('.' Gold- beaters afford us the means of demonstrating the minute divisibility of matter; they can spread a grain of gold into a leaf containing fifty square inches, which leaf may be readily divided into 500,000 parts, each visible to the naked eye. The natural divisions of matter are, however, far more surprisingly minute ; there are more animals in the melt of a single codfish than men on the whole earth. It is said that a single grain of sand is larger than four millions of these animals; yet each of them possesses a heart, stomach, bowels, muscles, nerves, veins, glands, tendons, & c.— It has been calculated tliat a particle of the blood of one of these animalcuhe is as much smaller than a globe one tenth of an inch in diameter, as that globe is smaller than the earth. Carrots.— A gentleman has lately published in a Medi- cal Journal some observations, which demonstrate the extraordinary effects of carrots iu the cure of sores and ulcers, by correcting their morbid disposition. The method of preparing the roots is as follows:— The carrots, having been previously cleaned by scraping and washing, are cut into thin transverse slices and boiled quite tender ; after which they are taken out of the water, and beaten in a mortar, to the consistence of a soft pulp. This may either be applied in portions w ith the hand, and kept on with a cloth or roller, or it may be spread upon a cloth, and laid on like a common poultice. It is best when fresh prepared, and should be changed twice a day. This simple application cor- lects the fa> tor of ill- conditioned sores, reduces them to a perfect healthy, or good- conditioned state, aud thickens and diminishes the discharge. Mr. Jackson.— Mr. Jackson is the son of the Rev. Dr. Jackson, who, in order to distinguish him from Dr. Cyril Jackson, and others of the name, was commonly called Consequential Jackson. He had been tutor to the late Duke of Leeds, then Marquis of Carmarthen, and who, when he became Secretary of State, in 17 S4, first introduced the present Mr, Jackson into the line of foreign Ministers. He resided as Envoy for several years at Berlin, where he married a Prussian lady of condition, and he remained at that court down to the period of time, iu 180fi, when a misunderstanding arose between us and the Prussian Government, on the subject of Frederick- William's acceptance of Hanover from Bonaparte. Since that rupture, Mr. Jackson has been only once employed on any foreign negociation; aud on that occasion he was, as is well known, eminently unfortunate. Previous to the expedition against Co- penhagen, Mr. Canning sent him with a message, or notification, to the Prince Regent of Denmark. We think that the interview between the Prince aud him took place at Kiel, in Holstein ; and he was commonly believed to have delivered the sentiments of the British Government to his Royal Highness iu so disrespectful or dictatorial a manner, as to have been desired imme- diately to quit the Danish territories. Certain it is, that such was the general belief and impression, both in Germany and iu this country. Whether the selection of a gentleman against whom such prepossessions, true or false, were entertained, to send to such a country as America, was judicious, the public will decide. Every thing— conciliation, suavity and amenity of manners, were indispensable. Mr. Jackson possesses capacity, experience, and tenacity; but his demeanour is not calculated to attract or to disarm. He is, on the contrary, firm, unyielding, sometimes caustic and repulsive. of the disavowal of the act of Mr. Erskine, instead of being made through that Gentleman himself, was not made through his successor; and it will he seen by hts second letter, that he even goes so far as to say, " that it had been found with much concern, and with not less surprise, that he ( Mr. Jackson) was char- red with no such explanations."— The reply to this charge, Mr. Smith knew while he was making it, had been already fully given by Mr. Jackson, in his answer to the first letter of the American Minister. Upon the contents of these documents it does not appear that any approximation was made towards a; good understanding upon any one of the points in dis- pute ; and we fear that eveu if our Government should so far concede to the caprice of Mr. Smith and Mr. Madison, as to appoint another Xcgociator in the place of Mr. Jackson, the indulgence would give little facility to the re- establishment of amity. The American Paper, entitled the Federal llepuliUrart of a late date says:—" Peace, Commerce, aud Pros- perity, has been the cry of the democratic leaders, while they have exhausted ingenuity and tortured invention,, to involve us in a war i> ith the only nation on the globe which has the power to injure us. Nor is this the least of our objections to these deceitful and imprudent men. In a moment of irritation, they have quarrelled about, an irrelevant, paltry, and immaterial point of contro- versy, and, without a moment's reflection, hurried awav by headstrong passion, they have dismissed the British Minister, and perhaps eut off every retreat from a ruin- ous and unnecessary war. Yes, an unnecessary war ! A war. which these very men, who have contrived to I render it almost inevitable, have neglected to furnisn the means of conducting, with the most distant prospect of success. Where is our army? Where our navy? In what condition are the fortifications in our seaport towns? Shall we look to Wilkinson's army for protec- tion ? Shalt we commit the safety of our cities to the defencc of n handful of dismantled frigates, and holf- drowned gun- boats? And who has placed our country in this defenceless and unprotected situation ?— The very men who have been striving for years to involve us in a war with the most formidable power of the earth, and at all hazards arc resolved to gain their ends. Let them look to it. When our towns arc battered about our ears, for want of means of defending them, who will be found to admire the wisdom, the prudence, the capacity of our rulers? Bravery is nothing without the means of fighting. No people have more fortitude and courage than the Americans.— But what of that ? When New York or Norfolk are bombarded, shall they stand upon the naked beach firing pop- guns at British 74' s, and be mowed down like corn- stalks? They vtoulddo it rather than submit? but what would it avail? Would it not be cruel, savage, to expose brave men to ho butchered in the field, for want of the means of defend- ing themselves ? But General Smith's brother, Robert, the Secretary, says we shall have war, he Kill have it so ; therefore let us haste and buckle on our armour." A hint to rich old Bachelors.— A gentleman lately died in London, who had attained the advanced age of 85. Same years ago he entered into the holy state of matrimouy with a young lady, with whom he made the fallowing singular agreement:— He gave her to under- stand that she would have nothing to expect at his death, but that as long as he lived, her allowance should increase with his years: the experiment suc- ceeded admirably, as it thus became the interest of the wife to take every care of him. Let old men, skmi larly disposed, take the hint. A New Year's Gift.— Monday morning two female infants were found in a basket, carefully wrapt up in blankets, and properly secured against the weather, placed at the door of a Gentleman in the neighbour- hood of South Lambeth, having a label affixed to the basket with the following direction:—" On discovery to be delivered to the worthy Bachelor immediately ;" who, on receiving the little foundlings, very humanely ordered a nurse to be provided, and every care to be taken of them.
