LEE, Clerk to the Trustees of the said Turnpike Road. FJ/ esmere, 9th June, 1810. A mother authentic Testimonial of the Efficacy of Dr. Taylor's Remedy for Deafness. ( From the Sussex Journal ol Nov. 14, 1808) published by Mr. Lee. of Lewes. WALTER FUNNELL, son of Mr. Funnel), a respectable yeoman, residing at Chiddingly Park Farm, at the age of three years, was seized with the scarlet fcver, the malignity cf which, for a time, threatened his life, and ultimately deprived him of his hearing, a misfortune that he had laboured under, to the extent of total deafness, fbr the space i f nine years, duiing which period, divers Applications had been resorted to, to stimulate the auditory nerves to re- actiou, but in vain, until the commencement of the pretent year, when his mother, seeing tbe remedy ad- vertised in this Journal, procured a bottle, and used it agree- ably to the printed diteclions for one month, but without airy apparent good effect; on the contrary, the discharge, and other appearances which it produced, so alarmed the kind- hcaited nousewivte of the neighbourhood, that they advised • a discontinuance of its use; but Mrs. Funnel), being a sensi- ble woman, replied—" No, at my hands the remedy shall have a lair chauce." She persevered iu its application, and at the end of another month, had the felicity to find, that her son was perfectly restored to bearing, of which nothing could afford a more gratifying proof to his parents, than the divert- ing observations he wus in the habit of making, until the organs of sound were reconciled to the novelty which they experienced. Tbe above is the substance of Mrs. Funnell's communica- tion to Mr. Lee, in casually heating him addressed by name ill a tradesman's shop ill Lewes, where the lady candidly owned, tbat no pecuniary consideration could have afforded her the satisfaction which she felt in having perused the paper, that possessed her of the knowledge of such an in- estimable remedy. The above esteemed Remedy is sold wholesale only by BARCLAY and SONS, 95, Fleet- matket, London; and may be had of W. F. DDOWES, Printer, Shrewsbury, price 8s, 6d. per buttle, with plain directions, aud uf all venders uf genuine medicine.

ABOTTLE or two will convince the patient of their sululuiy effects j a few bottles have effected a cure, after salivation und eveiy other means have proved abortive, and even when the disoider has been standing several years. No remedy can be better contrived, more safe, or more con- venient than this, fur such as are obliged to go long Jouinies, or to Sea, as it needs no confinement, or restraint of diet; and 40 years experience by Dr. Fteeuian iu an extensive practice has proved it no less successful iu those debilities which arise moie from imprudence than a certain cause— to such patients it holds out a never failing, permanent, aud speedy relief.

" Death, unto man, seems most conceal'd, when near, " And sends the dreadful tidings IN THE BLOW." Dr. You NO. rglHERE cannot perhaps be a more forcible illus- - JL nation of this solemn warning than is so commonly afforded by tbe awful effects ol' that moital malady, the Apo- plexy. Those who are subject to epileptic and convulsion fits, paralytic affections, anil such as are of gross habits, gradually incieasiug by indulgence, are the most in danger of a deadly attack of apoplexy.— It behoves them therefore to adopt the safest method of prevention ; and for this pur- pose w'u should be happy to point out a specific if possible. All the remedies which have been prescribed by the faculty for Epilepsy, have failed in numerous instances; and this unwelcome ttuib is Candidly acknowledged by tbe editors of the Edinburgh Dispensatory. Bonapaite, it was confidently reported some time ago, was attacked by a violent epileptic fit, which endangered his life : " The paths of glory lead hut to the grave!" Since that event some ingenious French physician has dis- covered a new way of curing epileptic tits, and this wonder- fully sagacious discovery isgiavely reported in our London papers. It consists frisum teneatis! J ill causing the person attacked with this dreadful malady to spend his nights aiid days in a cow- house, and to inhale the breath of cows 1 We think Jthn Bull won't relish this recipe, tho' for alight we know it may be as efficacious as the remedies prescribed by our faculty.—. Having noticed I hese prescriptions, and their failure, it is incumbent upon us to state, that a medical gentleman of the present day, now practising with uncom- mon success, has been prevailed upon to publish, through this public medium, a Remedy called Dr. TAYLOR'S ANTI- SPAS- MODIC PILLS, which is the most effectual medicine in the cure of epileptic and couvtiUion fits, and fur the prevention of apoplexy ; and we hear from all quarters instances of its extraordinary success. It is sold by W. EDDOWES, Printer, Shrewsbury, and most venders of pateut medicines. Price 6s. 6d. duty included.

A violent misunder- standing had taken place between this General, Berlhier, and Bonaparte: and the former apprehending an im. mediate arrest, took the resolution of deserting the French army, and coming over to this country, he contrived to gel down to the coast, when lie came oft", and was received as above- mentioned.— The Genera communicates that the French cause in Spain is of a hopeless nature; he corroborates the statement of an army being formed at Boulogne, it is stated to amount to 30,000 men, and is to be commanded hy Jerome Bonaparte!— General Sitrratin it is said, was second in command to Humber, when the French landed atKillala, in Ireland( in the autumn of 1798.— At a time when Bonaparte again talks of iuvasionj- it behoves t ie Go- vernment of this country to be upon its guard nguinst such fugitives.. A messenger, we understand, haifliecu dispatched to bring him to town. German papers to the date of June 4, have heen received, ihev contaiu an advertisement, oflferiii"- a reward of 2000 dollars for discovering what lias become of Mr. Bathurst. It will be recollected, that the tleraan to whom it refers was our Minister at the Court of Austria, and that he has been missing ever since he proceeded on his return to this country, after the con- clusion of the peace between Austria aud France. It is a strangely mysterious, and we much suspect, a very iniquitous affair.— The family of Mr. Bathurst have ascertained that he wan murdered, not from any poli- tical motive, but by brigands, who happened to be present at an inn, when he drew out his watch, which was a very valuable one. They way- laid and murdered him, and two persons have beeu apprehended iipon suspicion, who have confessed tiiat they know the inur derers, but deny that they had any share in the crime. The Lisbon Gazette of the IStli ulL contains a o, iy of a letter from Bonaparte to the Queen of 5ic iv, which, after enumerating Ihe events of the last, live years, which have materially changed the relative situ- ation of Europe, concludes with a proposition, ou he part of the Tyrant of the Coutinent, to make ti e King of Sicily Sovereign of all the Isles of Ihe . Mediterranean, on condition of his recognizing Murai, as Kin" of Naples, and Joseph Bonaparte as King of Spain. ° The removal of Fouche ( the Duke of Otranto) the Minister of Police at Paris, alfords another proof cf the declining influence of the Beatiharnois family iu Fiance.— Fouche was the great friend of that family, and they were his firmest supporters. The Boaapai tes and Beauharuois were always at variance— the former were jealous of the elevation of young Beauharuois to the Viceroyalty of Italy; a jealousy increased by his subsequent marriage with the daughter of tiie Elector of Bavaria. The Beauharaois contributed to the dis- grace of Lucien, who was a great favourite with his family, particularly the female part of it. Fouchs assisted them in all their projects, and in a more parti- cular manner the interests antl the influence of the re- pudiated Empress. As soon as the divorce had o- iven a fatal blow to the Beauharnois, ihe Bonaparte. s, no doubt, laboured to effect the fall of Fouche, and would, of course, have the aid of the new Empress, by reprpi seating him as the creature of her predecessor. CONSPIRACY IN CANADA,— A letter from ? hi! a delphia, dated May Isf, says— The post to Quebec on Monday last was stopped' by the express order qf Sir James Craig; the courier arrested, and all , he letters detained for inspection.— A number of leading characters among the Canadians, who were members of the House of Assembly, ( twice dissolved for im- proper conduct), aud the proprietor of a French paper, called Le Canadien, have been arrested aud thrown into gaol, upon a charge of treasonable and seditious practices; the printing- press, types, & c. also taken possession of. This vigorous measure of Sir James Craig has astonished the Canadians not a liltle s but the consequences will be no doubt beneficial to tho country, as it has crushed a faction wuicii has for some years been gaining strength, au. l acquiring dan- gerous influence over the niiuds of the inh ibitmts, who aro without education, and ignorant, of course, iu the extreme, therefore easily misled by deiiii'o » iies among their couutrymen, who seize every opportunity of stirring up all those prejudices which the people oi this country naturally nave against the British ; for having been allowed to preserve their language, they are nearly as much Frenchmen now as they were at the conquest." Jegery the Seaman.— The Public have heard so much respecting Jeffery, who was left on the Island of Sombrero, that our Readers, we doubt not, will read with some interest the following article, which is a copy of the affidavit of the man who actually took, him from that place j— " This is to certify, that personally appeared before me, John Dennis, Master of the American schooner Adams, belonging lo Marblehead, in the State of Massachusets, and voluntarily made oath, that in tiie month of December, in Ihe year 1807, he did, while passing the Island of Sombrero, in the Sombrero Passage, in the West Indies, discover from his vessel a man waving his hand on llie said Island, where- upon the said deponent hove his vessel to, and sent his boat on shore with the Mate, who found a man oil tbe said Island extremely reduced and exhausted, so as not to be able to speak.— That the mau having been brought on board the schooner, and so newliat recovered, declared that his name ivas Robert Jeffery, a seamau belonging to his Britannic- Majesty's brig of war Recruit, commanded by Capt. Warwick Lake, and tbat he had been eight days on the said Island.— This Deponent further said, that the said Robert Jetfery be- came quite recovered, and weut to Beverley, where he re- sided, working as a blacksmith, when tnis deponent last saw him. " JOHN DENNIS." Sivorn before me at Corunna, the » 1 9th of May, 1810, C l/ Mti L. MAONIAR, V. Consul. Done in the presence of Ge- nrge Digby, CaBtain of hi} Mayesty'j ship Cossack, LONDON. THURSDAY, JUNE 14. The Trcnch General lately arrived at Dover, is now in London : he was brought to town by Mr. Schaw, the messenge-: it is said he ig the s? me person who had the custody of Ferdinand VII. during the time he was conveyed from Bayonne to Ihe interior of France. — H is understood that the General accompanied Bona- parte in his late tour along the coast, and has incurred his displeasure, on afcount of the stale in which the Emperor found Boulogne, where Sarrazin had the principal command.— The Frenchman, we are told, has had an interview with Marquis Welleslcy, and has fanvshed Some Valuable information. The Arelhusa, Dryad, Narcissus, and a Spanish frigate, arfe preparing at Crtlm, Vith 2000 Spanish troops, to make an attack on St. Antonio, a fortified place near Bdboa, which prevents all'supplies along the coast, anil Will present a good arsenal for our crnizers. No fears are now entertained for the safety of Cadiz. Notwithstanding ihe multitude of inhabitant?, and Ihe number of the troops in garrison, there is abundance of water for six months, and provisions for twice that time. Two or Ihree more British regimcnfs would be sufficient of themselves to man all the works against which the enemy can act, making use of the Spaniards only for services of less danger and less importance. Two or Ihree additional British regiments will be sent on this duty. The Corsican Enporor being rtltirned from taking his new Empress on a pleasant excursion lo the Low Countries, is now going to Italy, desirous, no doubt, fo pay her a compliment, by shewing of what he has robbed her family. As he passed through the Netherlands, he might say to her, These'were the lands of yonr ancestors, long and happily settled under the government of your family, but now they are mine, au upstart Corsican.— III Italy he may make the same display, and the same boast, with still more galling effect, as the Italian States • were ever a darling object of the House of Austria.— Like Petruchio, he probably thinks the best way of beginning with a wife, to secure future happiness, is, to strike her with terror in the first instance, to humble her pride, and display his superiority. Letters from Heligoland of the 6th mention a rumour • prevalent at Hamburgh, that Bonaparte has demanded SO, 000 men of the King of Denmark for a particular service. At a Meeting of the Inhabitants of Sheffield, held a few days ago, some Hcsolutions were passed, respecting the conduct of the House of Commons to Sir Francis Burdett and Mr. Gale Jones; also a vote of censure on Lord Milton. . Military men connected with India will be gratified to know that the complaints of the Company's Officers on the inequality of their rank with that of the Officers of the King's army, arc likely to he speedily removed. The Commander in Chief in India will be instructed to - give commissions lo the Companj's Officers, appointing them to the rank proposed. We feel satisfaction in slating that the hopes of the safety of Mr. Mungo Park, are slrengthened by the last advices from Sierra Leone, The government of that colony, in consequence of information, hired a schooner, which they fitted out with every thing necessary for the comfort and assistance of this enter- prizing traveller, and sent it up the country, under the direction of a merchant, who has been resident in Africa some years. FRIDAY, JUNE 15. The Oporto fleet has been announced as having ar- rived in the Downs, under convoy of Ihe Fervent gun- Ting. Intelligence has been received by this opportu- Viity to the 21st of Mas, at that time every thins was in perfect security; the utmost confidence prevailed ; trade was going on as if war was considered of no im- portance. A great many shipments had taken place as In the time of pcace. By a letter from Corunna, we are told, that nothing can exceed the ardour of the people of Gallicia in the vast host of preparation to oppose the enemy ; yet fears of a visit from the latter are expressed by tile more cautious. It is stated that the French are now 60,000 strong in the neighbourhood of Cuidad Rodrigo and Salamanca, and that an attack upon the allies was expected soon to take place. Several merchants, it is said, have stated it as their opinion, that British goods could be purchased at Buenos Ayres at a much more reasonable rate than in London. Most'of Hie private letters received from our coun- trymen in France, by the last cartel, speak of the ardent desire expressed by the people of that country for the restoration of peace. The situation of the English prisoners has been for some time greatly ameliorated ; their confinement is by no means rigorous, and extra allowances of provisions have been granted. Such of the women and children as are able, are permitted to work, and provisions of all kinds being plentiful and cheap, they are enabled to live tolerably well, and to render the captivity of their husb? nds less irksome. The prisoners who have come over experienced the most marked kindness from the inhabitants of the places thro* which they passed, many of whom would shake them by the hand, congratulate them on their return home, and express their fervent wishes for the return of peace. Extract Of a letter from an officer in one of his Ma- jesty's vessels off Flushing, dated the 1th inst.—" We are just returned to our aichorage ( about ten miles from the main land, near Blackenburgh). We have had an excellent reconnoitre. The enemy's force con sists of four line of battle ships, ore frigate, two praams ( vessels mounting 24 24- poundcrs), and 19 brigs, all apparently ready for sea ; five of the brigs got Under way, aftd stood towards us for a few minutes, as we were running out; but on our heaving to, they very prudently returned. 1 have not time to add more." The Rifleman, Capt. Inncs, which arrived on Sunday from Faval, convoyed to St. George's Channel 14 nail of ships, laden with American produce, principally cotton. The Americans, to evade the Non- Intercourse Act, have landed their cargoes at Fayal, which empty ships have been sent from this country to bring away. There were about 20 sail lying at Fajal when the Rifleman sailed. This expedient is now become unne- cessary, by the late amicable determination of the American Councils. Yesterday a grand meeting of Freemasons look place at the Thatched House Tavern, the Earl of Moira, the Vict> Gvand Master, President, when the Persian Am- bassador was introduced, and made a MusOn. The Dukd of Sussex was present, Two persons have come jorwaru that he was valet to Mr. Church, formerly M. P. and who left this country for America; aud while he was at New York, Selis was suspected of an intention to assassinate that gentleman. Mr. Church . had been rob- bed of 500 dollars, and one night, when he was dozing iu his arm- pha'tr, ( in which tie always slept, not using a bed), he was roused by the opening of tbe chamber door, aud the rppearanoe of J man softly stealing in. The man, ou perceiving that Mr. C. was awake, sud- denly retreated, but that gentleman suspecting that it was Selis, had him taken up for the robbery, and he underwent an examination before the Magistrate at New Yo k. The result we do mil. k'uow, but he was discharged from Mr. C.' s s rvice. One of the persons who have deemed il their duty to give their testimony ou this occasion is said to have been Mr. C.' s butler, and the other a maid- servant in the family, and who is now in the same situation at Mr. Alderman Combe's. It is remarkable that Selis, who, Mr. Church was per- suaded, was the man who stole into his room, had ocked hiuwelf for some hours in a closet, iu the same manner as lie did at St. James's Palace. SATURDAY, JUNE 16. A letter from Capt. Hotham, of tlve Defiance, of 74 guns, gives an account of the boats of that ship, under the directions of Lieuts. \ V. Style and G. tlulchinson, having, after a pursuit of six hous rowing, captured and brought out from Under two batteries at Belleisle, and the fire of some field- pieces and armed vessels, three chasse marees, laden with wine aud rosin, for I'. OiriCBt.— GaJelte. Private accounts from Lisbon, by the Prince of Wales packet, state that the restrictions of the Regency on tbe exportation of wine had been rescinded. The armies, were plentifully supplied witji provisions of everv description, and were in good health. The latest accounts from the army are of the 24th of Mav, at which time the fortes continued . in their former station., Lord \ Vellington was at Geierico t General Craufurd, with the army under his command, was at Montallegra, on thc. Giiaida. The General had had an interview with the Marquis Romana, on the subject of future operations. Massena had arrived at the head- quarters of the French army, called the Army of Portugal, and hafl'asstimed the chief command. Ney, Soult, and Mortier, commanded under him; the idea that offensive operations would soon be oommcnceil by the French, arose more from a knowledge of the rest- less spirit of Massena, than from any movement of his armv. The following article is from the Lisbon Diary, of the 24th of May :—" The accurate calculation of the loss of the French, in the month of March, in the kingdom of Arragon, in killed and wounded, prisoners, and doserters, is stated to amount to 7,103, and more than 400 dispersed about Manusa, which have doubtless fallen into our hands." Dutch papers and letters, ofthe 11 th inst. contain a copy of a Decree, dated 24th ult. making various alterations in the Decree of the 25th of May 1809, regulating the line of legal and contraband traffic. The Decree is signed by King Louilf. By letters received from France it appears that Bonaparte has refused to grant any more licences for the exportation of grain; but from what cause is not distinctly explained.. Within the eight days preceding Thursday last, 49,180 quarters of wheat have been entered into the port of London. , The Duke of Cumberland is so far recovered as to have walked a short time yesterday in Carlton House Gardens.— The Princess Amelia was considered a little bet'fir yesterday moruing, . Notice was given on ' Change yesterday, that the Chancellor nf the Exchequer intends to contract for tho new Lottery on Wednesday next. Dutch Papers to the 10th, and French to the 7th instant, have reached town. The Turkish army is said to be 450,000 strong ; of which number, after deduct- ing garrisons, about 180,000 can be brought into the fie'd. The Russian army in Moldavia and Wallaehia is reported to be straitened for provisions ; a circnm stance not unlikely lo lead to the evacuation of the greater part of these provinces. . The whole of the West India Fleet arc arrived in the Downs, and sailed for Ihe River. Private letters brought by this fleet, say, that Admiral Cochrane lias taken possess'on of the island of Porto Rico. American papers to the 12th ull. are received, the leading articles in which relate merely to the official documents presented to Congress, respecting the dis- pute between France and America. From the letters of Gen. Armstrong, at Paris, which form a part of these documents, we gather, that at no time was Na- poleon inclined to lessen the severe measures he had adopted against the commerce of America. An unfounded report was yesterday circulated, that the Settlement of Bencooleu had been taken by the enemy. It is supposed to have arisen from the cir- cumstance of the Settlement of Tappanooly, on the Coast, of Sumatra, being taken on the 12th October by the French corvette Creole, Capt. Rigaud. He sent a summons first to the Settlement to surrender ; no answer was relumed. The garrison fired; hut the corvctte got. on the South- side, where she was covered from the fire, and could effect a landing. The garrison then surrendered. It consisted only of five Europeans and thirty Sepoys. The enemy had 150 men, and behaved very ill to the prisoners. Accident.— Lord Hawkc was thrown out of his cur- ricle yesterday, in Glocester- place, and severely hurt. His, Lordship was returning home, thro' Portinan- square, in his curricle, with two bay colts, to prepare to join the procession of the Four- in- Hand Club, attended by his coachman, when the colts turned restive, and broke the pole. In this state of the carriage, they wentoffat full speed, and ranfuriously along Duke- street into Glocester- place, where one of the wheels came in contact with a pea cart; at the same instant his Lord- ship, finding he had no chance of stopping the horses, was getting out at the back of the curricle, but, unfor- tunately, from the sudden jerk of the carriage running against the cart, his lordship was thrown out and nearly I knocked out his left eye, cut open his left check, and was otherwise bruised in a most shocking manner. He have ta'. en far o motto to the present sheet, t Lave heard of some other pretty little things of . the sort; but, I rather • boose to take my instance ( and a very Complete fine it is) from a public print,, notoriously under the sway of the Ministry." The Attorney- General contended, that this was a libel.— Mr Cobbett." defended himself in propria pefsinti, od the ground of the quo unimo, which he said was, not to excite disaffection, but merely to express his opinion of the impropriety of employing fore st troops in Fngland. Lord Ellenhorough summed up, and concluded as follows; " The Defendant has . aid he meant bv loyal men Messrs. Bavles, Hunt, and VHfiers : it is for you to decide if such were bis intention. It is for you to consider whether the Defendant, as he told you, writing with zeal and strength, has tint gone over the bounds of moderation, or that it was not his intention to have excited animosity between the different distinctions of his Majesty's land forces? Where I bave doubted, I have pointed those doubts out to you, and left them for your decision ; but, according to my oath and my conscience, I am bound to declare to von my opinion, which is, that the publication, admitted by the Defendant to be sanctioned by him— nay, that'he is the author of it— carries to my tnind the certainty of conviction that it is a most seditions ' libel, tending to the most dangerous purposes, by disuniting the nrm'y, on which, at this most awful crisis, the safety of the country so much depends." The Jury deliberated about two minutes, and returned a verdict of— Guilty. 13. was taken up in a senseless state, and conveyed into the house of Mr. C. Savage, within a few houses of his own. Mr. Heavisidc and five other surgeons, were sent for, and attended in a short time ; they deemed his Lordship in such a bad state, lhat he could not be removed to his own house. The King v. Cobbett.— Mr. Cobbelt has again fallen nuclei the lash of the law. He was tried in the Court of King's Bench on Friday last for a libellous paragraph iu the. Political Register.— The Attorney General stated tbe facts, which were simply these: In the middle of last year a mutiny broke out among Ihe Cambridgeshire Local Militia ( then stationed in Ibe Isle of Ely), about the money which they ought to pay fir their knapsacks. They surrounded their officers, and be- haved in so mutinous a manner lhat it was necessary to call in force to quell tin m. For this purpose four squadrons of the German Legion, from Bury, arrived at Ely, and brought the mutinous troops fo subjection ; five of whom were tried as tbe ring- leaders; and sentenced to receive 500 lashes, part ol which sentence they received, and part was remitted. In consrq'uence of this, there appeared in The Courier news- paper, a paragraph stating these facts. With this paragraph, as a text to a sermon, had Mr. Cobbett headed his paper.— The Attorney- General then read the allcdged libel, of which theVollowing is an extract. " LOCAL MILTTIA AND GERMAN LEGION. " See the motto, English reader I- See the motto, and then do pray recollect all that has been said about the way in which Bonaparte raises his soldiers. — Well done, Lord Caitlereagh! This is just what it was thought your plan would produce. Well said, Mr. Huskissou ' It really was not without reason that you dwelt with so much earnestness upon the great utility of the Foreign troops, whom Mr. Wardle appeared to think of no utility at all. Poor Gentle- man I he tittle imagined how a great genius might find useful employment lor such troops.

Eat) GBET said, Ihe measures that have been adopted by his Majesty's ministers to meet the dangers that on nil hands surround us, being, in his opiuion, totalty inadequate to the purpose; be had thought it his duty, before they separated, to bring the subject before the House, iu order that they might give to his Majesty such advice as this alarming crisis imperiously demands. He lamented the lo » s of the assistance of his noble friend ( Grenville); but declined, that he had that noble lord's Complete concurrence to the principle and object of the Address he meant to submit to them. In looking at the difficulties which the country labours under, and the enormous weight of taxation, which it is thought cannot long be borne, the lemed. v that naturally presents itself is Peace. .. But we are now brought into a situation in which it is difficult to say, if Peace will be useful to us or not; for, from the present extraordinary Ruler of France it must be obtained, and will be by him continued only as long as is consistent with bis schemes of revenge( and views of ambition. _ His lordship recommended ministers to husband otiV resources, lhat we might carry on the war with effect; and condemned their rash conduct in regard to Spain,. as well. as to tf. e powers lhat still remain , fr* e from the yoke qf France ; particularly their conduct towards Copenhagen and America. He then took occasion to advert to the ' mode of carrying on trade by licence, which was contrary to the spirit of every free government; aqd con- tended. that being obliged fo trade with America in foreign bottoms we have been raising seamen . for Bonaparte. In our domestic relations EISO we would find little to exult at. He recommended a ihost rigid economy ip the public expendi- ture ; defended Lord Petty's plan of Finance ; and insisted, that at a juncture like the present, Ministers, in what was proper, ought to accede to the people, and not wound their feelings, nor irritate them to niadifss. He alluded to the Catholic Emancipation. All that was wrong, or had fallen into decay in the state, he would have reformed iu a mo- derate and gradual way, but always by the line pointed out by the Constitution. Abolition of Reversionary Places, aud Reform ill the other House of Parliament, he strenuously recommended; but not that species of theoretical reform, hunting for the acme of perfectiou, w hich no human Know- ledge can attain. His lordship here entered into a detail of Ins political life, to shew that such were the opinions of his early days, nor had they altered with his maturer years. Into those questions affecting the tights and privileges of the other House, he would not enter, as they are to come before another place; and may ultimutely be decided by that House ; but be could not help expressing his strongest dis- approbation of the doctrines that have been industriously circulated on that subject, tending to mislead the people to their ruin. We were not to argue, that because these privileges may at some time have been used arbitrarily, that therefore, when they are found lobe in many eases eminently useful, they should be cast aside. They have been esta- blished by a long course of usage, such as that which has fixed tbe common law of the land. Mr. Fox, Mr. Pitt, and Mr. Buike, all supported these privileges; and would it be said that these great irien, who differed so widely on many topics, hid wickedly combined to support a power which they knew or thought to be unlawful ? He knew he might easily have taken a mure popular side of the question, but his honour ami his duty forbade It; and where they stood iu the way, no earthly consideration could Sway him from the line of his duty. Dearly as lie liked popularity, when he enjoyed with it a mind conscious of its owii rectitude, yet he could not consent tii earn it at the expente of his own honour a « l the people's happiness. From tiie change of popular sentiment he knew He wa « liable to experience il, as many much greater rtieii than him had done in all free governments ; but he CouM not endure that the good opinion of the public should be thru from him by the basest calum. uies. — lie knew that those who enjoy at present most ofthe populai applause, are men destitute of every moral and religious principle, of all honour and integrity of heart; and he also knew that men of that description were most likely to attain pi pillar fame. His Lordship concluded by moving an Address to his Majesty, embracing all the topics in the his speech. Lord LIVERPOOL agreed with Earl Grey in his sentiments on the Privileges of Parliament, which were founded on the law of the land, aud could no more be dispensed with than the statute law : he differed however on the other objects which his m . tiou embraced, and concluded by opposing it,—. Lord Stanhope moved an amendment, to the following effect— '* That this House will al at times support the law of the laud coupled with the rights of the subject; and to the supi » ort of which they conceive tbe Trial by Jury, and the Liberty of tbe Press, to be indispensably necessary."— Lord Erskine, and ihe Duke of Norfolk, supported the amendment; the Marquis of Lausdowne, tbe Earl of Moira, aud Lord Darnley spoke in favour of Earl Grey's motion ; and Lords Eldju, Sidmoutn, and Buckinghamshire opposed it.— I'he amendment was negatived without a division.— Oil the original question being put there appeared for it 72, against it i34— Majority 62. HOUSE OF COMMONS. The Sheriffs of London presented the Petition of the Lord Mayor, Aldermen, and Commons respecting Gale Jones and Sir F. Buidett: which was ordered to lie on the table. — Mr. ROB ARTS presented a counter- petition to tbe petition and passe, t.— Tbe East India Loan bill was passed, on a division, 52 against 10.— Tbe Coinmitt. ee on the PooftLaws was postponed for three months. The bill is of course lost. Mr. LOCKHART gave liotiee, that hext'Session he would bring uuder the consideration of tbe House a decision of tbe Court of Common Pleas, in which it had been determined, that the denial of a person to a tax- gatherer was an act of bankruptcy. HOOSF. OF LORDS.— FRIDAY, JUNE. 15. Lord REDESOALK presented a Bill which he had framed, for tbe better recovery of small debts. As it was not his in- tention to have the measure passed in this period ofthe Ses- sion, he wished it should remain upon their Lordships' table, for the purpose of being taken into consideration in the early part of the next.— Tbe Bill was read a first time. HOUSE OF COMMONS. The SPEAKER was summoned to the House of Lords to hear his Majesty's assent to several public and private Bills Upon his return, he announced to the House the Royal assent to the Lottery Bill, the Irish Post- Offiee Bill, the Local Militia Bills, the Wood Importation Bill, ibe Offices Grants Bill, the Holyhead Harbour Bill, the Irish Flax Bill, and several other public and many private Bills. Mr. H. THORNTON presented a petition from the Electors of tbe Borough of Sonthwark, praving for the liberation of John Gale Jones and Sir Francis Burdett from confinement, and for Parliamentary Reform. — Ordered to lie on the table. Sir J. H * LL stated that he had been one of those who voted for the commitment of Mr. Gale Jones : he however lamented that he had done so, and was determined thus publicly to renounce his former opinions. He then moved " that J. G. Jones be forthwith discharged from his confinement in Newgate, without payment of fees."— Mr. RYDER objected to the motion. He said Mr. Jones misriit have been lonj since released, bad he complied with tbe forms usual on such occasions.— The motion was negatived without a division. Mr. BROUGHAM brought forward his motit'lon relative to he Slave Trade; and concluded a very able and argntnentaive speech, with proposing " an Address to his Majesty, stating that tbe House having duly considered the papers sent by his Majesty, feel deep regret that his efforts to induce other countries to co- operate in suppressing Ihe Slave Trade were not effectual, and requesting lhat his Majesty would negoeiate with his Allies, and those who were callable of eiving assist- ance, for the purpose of effectually preventing the eontiuu. anceofit. That they saw with regret that some still con- tinued to carry on the traffic, and hoped lhat early in the next Session measures would be taken to prevent it. And that his Majesty would be pleased to direct the Commanders of ships of war, and others, who, from their situation, were capable of acting for this purpose, to exert themselves in preventing the continuance of the trade."— The Cu ANCKLI. OR of the EXCHEQUER disapproved of the Address, nnd conceived that a Resolution of the House to pledge itself lo brine forward the subject early next Session would be the more regular mode of acting.— The motion, however, was agreed to. The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER moved the third reading of the Vote of Credit Bill: upon which Mr. WHIT- BREAD took the opportunity of going over the various topics which had occurred in the course of the Session, and the general Stale of the Nation. He concluded with saying he should vote against the third reading of this bill, though, as lie could expect no success from a division, he would not take the seilsc of the House upon it. — Mr. CANNINO, in a very eloquent speech, went over the same grounds, but with very different views; and contended that no Ministry ap- pointed by the King, and so far supported by Parliament as to exist at the end of a Session of Parliament, ought to be left unarmed to meet whatever extraordinary dangers might arise before thfy met again.— The bill was read a third time and passed,— The further consideration ofthe Canal Robbery Bill was postponed for three months.— The House adjourned to Wednesday. POSTSCRIPT L0WD0W, Monday Wight, June IS, 1810. Letters have arrived in town to . day from the coast of France, dated on Friday last. They announce that the Government of France had issued a Decree, having tor its object the Prohibition of Corn from that country. This is stated to bave been done as a general measure, and not in consequence of its having reached its maximum. Letters have been received from Gottenburgh, of a subse- quent date to the last mail from thence. The most promi- nent feature of news they announce is, that intelligence had been just received from Denmark to the purpovt, that the Danish Government would not permit any communication with Sweden, till it shall fully and satisfactorily appear by what means tbe Crown Prince came by his death. Letters have also been received from Riga to the 24th ult. by which we learn, that the free udmission of vessels into that pok had not been determined on, notwithstanding a few days previous to the above date 34 vessels had arrived, and 26 sailed for different destinations. It is now generally understood that Sir Francis Burdett will return from the Tower attended by his friends in procession, great preparations are making for the event, and to make the spectacle as splendid as possible circular letters have been sent round to the members of the Common Council, requiring all Ihe friends of Sir Francis belonging to that body, to meet on tbe morning of his liberation, at Guildhall, for the pur- pose ot attending the procession from the Tower. A number of military corps have been ordered from distant parts of the country, to take stations near town, to be prepared against any tumultuous proceedings that mipht occur. During the last week Government have deemed it necessary to change the Garrison of the Tower, and the Veterans have been sent to Chatham and elsewhere, to make room for a Yorkshire Regiment 900 strong.

Mr. BvNo presented a petition from the Freeholders of Middlesex, in lieu of that which had been rejected by the House. - Mr. RYDER opposed its being received, on account of the contemptuous language, and the disrespect and in. dignity with w hich the House was treated in it.— Mr WHIT- BREAD spoke in support of, and the CHANCELLOR of Ihe EXCHEQUER against the petition : aud it was rejected without a division. Mr. WHITBREAD presented a petition from tiie inhabitants of Sheffield, praying for Reform iu Pailiament, and the lelease of Gale Jones, and Sir F.

A letter from Liverpool, dated 13th inst. savs,—" The wind has been unfavourable, but whenever it change, til,.' for evef'so short a time, ships are arriving. We have infor- mation from America of exports from thence tor this country, large, beyond all former precedent.— In Cotton, Hour, and Corn, especially. Perhaps it is not over- rnt'mg the matter, if we sav more will arrive in the next two months, than atanv foimei period in fax. Every ship too brings large orders for manufactured goods." Twenty- three vessels from America are in tbe arrivals of last week at Liverpool, laden with wheat, t flour, and other American produce. The whole of the Leeward Island fleet bound to Bristol have arrived safe. Green peas sold in Glocester market on Satin day last, for 2s. till, a peck.— A severe blight has destroyed tho hope of a plentiful crop of fruit in that and the adjoining cider counties. Tbe apple trees have suffered most. Many parts of this and the adjoining counties were visited in the afternoon of Wednesday last with a most terrific storm, of thunder, hail, and rain : the hail was of prodigious size, and descended in torrents; it is feared considerable damage has been done in the orchards, gardens, and to vegetation in general. Some of the anti- ministerial papers say, " that had Sir F. Bnrdett been consigned to a second Nebuchadnezzar's fiery ordeal, his person would doubtless have remained equally uninjured, as Daniel's in the den of lions I" Monmouth Wool fair.— This interesting mart lo farmers and clothiers was held on Wednesday last. The quantity of wool brought for sale was unusually small, nnny ftjeks of sheep not having yet been shorn, in consequence of tbe late rains. Fine wools sold from 4us. to 45s. per stone; and, we understand, in a solitary instance, 46s was given— being an advance of nearly 4 « . upon last vear's prices. Coarse wool* also experienced a rise in price, selling from 36s. to 40s. ; but the demand was not so great as fof the finer qualities, and much of the inferior sorts remained unsold.

Four privates in the East Worcester regiment of Local Militia were, a few days since, tried by a Court- Martial at Evesham, on acnarge of disobeying the orders of their officers ; when they were found guilty, aud sentenced to three months solitary confinement in the common gaol at Evesham, Atrocious Murders. Captain Briton, of the Royal West- India Raugeis, is committed to Winchester gaol, charged with the murder of his OWN SON, a lad ten yeaisof age. He was apprehended at Wells, in Somersetshire, disguised as a gardener. And on Thursday last, John Rees, of the parish of I lanliowell, near Usk, was fully committed to Monmouth gaol, by Thos.

Whitm< re, Esq, tba Duke of Hamilton's horse Lancaster, for 700. It is asserted that not less than 600,000/. were depending on various bets upon the event of the race for tlie Oerby- Stakes. The knowing family of the legs made on this occasiuii, a prodigious booty. On Thursday were committed lo Worcester gaol, Thomas. Hanhatri and Mary Rowland, for having, with other persons, unlawfully continued in a riotous and tumultuous manner at Kidderminster, after proclamation made lo disperse:— also John Arnold, for having attempted to rescue tbe above- men- tioned Thomas Hanham.— On the arrival of these prisoners at Worcester, some disorderly persons assembled at the back of tbe Hop- Pole Inn, and broke the chaise in which they were conveyed. With this transgression, the riotous pro. cerlnre did not terminate. A number of evil- disposed persons collected in a body, and demolished the windows of several veiy respectable inhabitants of that city,— and might have perpetrated further outrages, had not Ihe Magistrates land principal inhabitants instantly repaired to the different scenes ot tumult, and, by their preseuce, and animated conduct, subdued tbe spirit of disorder, and restored the agitated city to complete tranquillity.— Amongst the injuries sustained by various inhabitants rendering assistance, Mr. Haden. attorney, received a severe contusion, by part of a brick being thrown at him. A reward 20 guineas his been offered for the discovery of any of the offending parties. Caution.— The following melancholy ciicumstance took place o- j Thursday last.— A young man who was taking twr> blood horses to Bath, very imprudently fastened the bridles by which be was leading them, round his wrist. At the toot of Dunkerton- hill the horses took fright at a heap of stones, and ran off at full speed, dragging the man from ttie poney on which he was riding, aud continued to drag liiin along t'nn. tuiopike- road between thein, kicking and mangling him iu a most shocking manner. Several of his boues were broken, aud after languishing fur about 20 minutes, he died iu tha most excruciating tortures. Two plans have been suggested which, however impracti- cable, are in their nature truly pleasing and philanthropic. The first is to build cheerful cottages, at certain distances, by the sides of our public roads, as residences for labourers to- repair the road lor a space equi- distaut On both directions. The second, to surround the shores of the United Kingdom with marine cottages, at intervals of a aide, to serve as bea- cons on certain occasions, to ali'ord relief, advice,., aud shel- ter, to shipwrecked or distressed seamen.

Accident.— As tbe coach which left the lion Inn in this town, on Mondav morning, was proceeding on its road to Chester, it passed the coach which leaves the Talbot Inn at Cockfhnt, where it bad stopped to put down a passenger, pnd proceeded on at a regular puce until it came within a Wrle and quarter of Ellesmere; when the Talbot coaeh came up to them, and passing by at n furious rate, so alarmed the liorses belonging to the l. ion roach that they became un- manageable, and were all thrown down, the- pole broke, nnd th* coach overturned. We are sorrv to add, that one of tbe outside passengers bad her shoulder dislocated, and was other- wise much bru'sed. as were several of the other passengers. The passengers travelling in the Lion coach, in conjunction with the Proprietors, are determined to bring such desperate and unwarrantable proceedings to issue at our next assizes, for which purpose they have given in their names and residences.

What a natural skill in botany is here, and making surcharges of the duties of assessed taxes, and I likewise what a memory ! of the property tax, has been printed. It contains the Quicksilver.— The Tri Sin,— As you have favoured the puhlic with more than two Column* of the sentiments lately published by the Montgo- meryshire member ( Mr. Wynn), I hope to find in vour paper that impartiality wh'Ch is clue to the public, to afford room for some ideas in opposition to his arguments. The first matter which occurred after having perused the extracts, was that the cases adduced were chiefly at periods anterior to the Revolution, in 1688 ; when the Rights of the People were p- ut- rl upon a su1 er and move definite basis than Vhey stood before that glorious event.— Even on that prin- ciple alone, his arguments cannot be ' of muck weight with thinking men.— Tbe practice of barbarous ages, is not to be so binding on the persous who live iu more enlightened periods of civil society, that they are to take precedent as a guide* for their conduct superior to that of equity of principle. Oil the'contrary, equity ought to prevail over precedent ; and it would be no very difficult task, by reference to history, to produce eases where even the House of Commons have thought so.— O/ i* which occurred to me, a day or two ago, is that of the Lord Chancellor ( Macclesfield) in the reign of George the First, who pleaded precedent to justify his coirupt practice in the Sate of Places, that such sums had been usually received by foimer Lord Chancellors; but reason sajd that such receipts were contrary to justice ; and, alter a trial of 20 days, the Earl was convicted ( bv the Commons, before theharof the House of Lords), of fraudulent prattices, and fined thirty thousand pounds. Thus it seems that the idea of precedent being superior fo equity, cannot equitably or fairly be pleaded by the House of Commons : unless they mean to say that precedent or equity shall be their plea, just as they may find one or other best adapted to suit their purpose. As I only w ish to repel the principle of those gentlemen who mean to support their privileges by precedent, 1 shall not seek for a multitude of cases: but put together a few- thoughts, just as they arise, not regarding much the rules of method or systematical arrangement.— My object is truth and justice ; not celebrity for composition. " In the year 1640, Judge Berkeley was arrested on his seat in the Court of King's Bench, and sent to prison, — for giving his opinion in lavour of ship- money."— Now here is a precedent for those gentlemen to praise and follow who are fond of acting upon precedents. 11 < re is a Judge committed to prison, by an insolent set of genilemen, masqucd trith liberty, because he gave his OPINION against their opinions If any Judge now living were to give his opinion, in favour ofthe right of Sir F. Bordett to question and doubt, or even to deny, the authority of the House of Commons, singly to accuse, try, judge, and punish, any of the per pit: for ofiences committed OUT of that House; and if ihe House of Com- mons, agreeably to this Berkeley an precedent, were to arrest any Judge of tbe K. B. or of any other Court, because he had presumed to give such an opinion, which may happen to be right, 1 really must state it as my opinion, that such a mode of proceeding by precedent would not, eventually, produce much honour to such stout supporters of present conduct by examples from the past, I am of opinion, sir, that if petitions would release such a Judge, the officers belonging to the King would, in a very few days, have employment enough to receive petitions liom the people, and it would appear a gracious " act in tbe King to listen to the voice of the people, and oppose equity to precedent. Thus speaking about Judges, I shall advert to a passage in Mr. Wynri's work, which stands as an extract at the top of your third column, and I confess some astonishment at it. I must quote the words, and mark the offensive parts by Italic type. " Will it now be said that the system of tbe Constitution " is to be reversed, that Parliament is to be subjected to Ihe " controu! of Ju DGES, appointed by the Crown, its freedom and " dignity to rest upon their decisions •"— Here is an illiberal insinuation which I cannot but treat Vith the. scorrt w hich it merits ; and with the leave of Mr. Wyiin 1 beg leave to assert, as my opinion, though it may " be wrong, that there is pmpoitionately more pu- ity in the 12 Judges appointed as they aie by the Crown, with situations for life, than in the House of Commons appointed or constructed as it is with Members who hold situations but pro tempore, and greatly removable at the will of certain noblemen and gentlemen called patrons, and others called ministers — This yoint 1 will not attempt to illustrate, either by equity or precedent ; but it is meiely a matter of opinion. However, Mr. Wynn will be so oblgiug as just to recollect that wheu the appeal shall be made to a jury, ( if it ever be made) tbe freedom and dignity of Parliament ( alias a chamber or part of Parliament) will not rest upon the 1— the Judge* decision ; but upon men Ml appointed by the Ciown ; upon * a panel of ' men Who ought lo be Impartially and honestly chosen from the kingdom at large; and, as the case requires an ex/ rrtordbiary Jury, 1 wish that there were to be one Juryman, dtawn by lot, out 6f ' 52 respectable names indis- criminately chosen iu every county, and then the one out of every county so drawn, to tie one of 52 Jurymen to try this question " whether the House of Commons had a right to commit Gale Jones, aud then Sir F. Burdett'?"— Thus this jury ot 52, selected in compliment to the 52 counties in England and Wales, would be chosen fairly out of 1104 " respictable men, and one may fairly suppose them as intelli- geul aud inipaitial, and as competent to decide with judgement and integrity, abuut tlie freedom and dignity ofthe House'ot Conttrtons or chamber of Parliament, as if the - 658 gentlemen of that chamber were to be exclusively vested with the power of deciding in their own cause, and to be accusers, jwymen, ji. dges, and exeevtio en all wilhin them- selves.— I leally would piefer these 52 to those 658. Nay, as a matter of opinion, 1 would prefer the decision of this cause by taking the 12 Judges only, aud impanelling them as the 12 jnrors, in tlie trial between tile Speaker and Si Francis. I well know that the minds of lawyers are like the mirids of other men, unatr influence from their habits; and they aie habituated much to precedents. Still I would lather rely on their equity, than on the equity of men who are to decide for or against themselves. There is in one case the bias ol ZIVCATION : there is m the other tire bias of SEDF- INTEHEST. Which of the two is likely to have the stronger unjust sway I leave my readeis to guess. After a few words more in reference to precedent, ! shall briefly conclude— Mr, Wynn says, that either " insult to the membeis for II their PARLIAMENTARY conduct, or an attempt to degrade " and vilify the chaiucter and proceedings of the House " itself," is sufheieut foundation lor imprisonment of the insulting or degrading person. Now, sii, it is my opinion, but that may be erroneous, that to resist the payment of a tax is very much like an attempt to degrade aud vilify the proceedings of the tax- making House; ergo, every person so resisting ought to be commuted to prison without trial by juiy, but ineiely by the authority of the House ol Commons exercising its great and important privilege" to punish all who offend them. Sir, I certainly call to mind the case of one John Hampden, • tioublesome sort of fellow who lived in the reign of the pious Charles- Ahe First, and had the effrontery to resist the payment of ship- money j a tax, winch had, in former ieigns, bteu levied without the consent of Pailiament.— He refused to pay it, bui instead of his being committed, by the Commis- sion Couit of Star- Chamber, this Buckinghamshire Hero was iudulgi d with a trial, or ut least his case was argiuil 12 days, in the Exchequer Chamber, before all the Judges^ and iliey ( excepting four) decided against him, aud in lavour of the Crown. This may serve as a precedent though it refers to the Crown; tur the Parliament of England has 3 Chambers, and the King has one of the chambers, and neither of the chambers alone is equal to the three. There is no political I triiily, so fur, though tlie three make but one; and " a I three- fold cord is not easily biokeu ;" but a siugie curd is net quite so strong. It will be found so in ail cases : however the fieeduui and dignity of the King and his Council was br ie submitted to the Judges. Query. If one of these 3 Chambers could be brought to this uiovie of Utcidiug a claim, why may not either of tin: other is. o ? Here is a precedent, and such a precedent too as equity would sanction. Without wishing to oiler any " insult" to Mr. Wynn for his conduct as a member, or as au author when lie is not in the Chamber of Parliament appropriate to his third cits-, 1 have nothing to add but to promise him and the ju the, ihat, if ihcie be real occasion lor it, my leal name shall te giltu in the next, and perhaps thai will be the final letter.

New Roofing.— An iron roof was lately constructed by the Aberdare Iron Company, and put up at New- port, Monmouthshire. It covers a building 40 feet ong and 21 feet wide over the walls, aud consists of seven main couples, two leading couples, and wall- plating, all of cast iron, wrought iron laths, screw- pins, & c.; total weight 2 ton, 4cwt. 2qrs. 20ib. being sufficiently strong to sustain the heaviest stone- tile of this country, and is in itself lighter than oue of wood, of which substance there is not oue particle. The main couples are made in three pieces, the collar or tie- beam of which forms part of a circle, thereby giving much more head- room than is possible with wood, and holes are left in the same for the purpose of fixing ceiling- joists, making an handsome coved ceiling: it requires neither side- pieces or rafters, the wrought iron laths being a substitute for both. The whole roofing, after being fitted together and taken to pieces again, at Aberdare iron- works, was put into one waggon, and conveyed to Tredegar iron- works, there unloaded into a tram- waggon, aud taken down the Sirhowy tram- road, through Sir C. Morgan's Park, to Newport, in twenty- four hours— a distance of thirty- six miles. It was then fitted together again, and fixed on the walls completely ready for the tiler in less than five hours, who, having no laths to prepare or nail on, can tile a roof in half the time it could be done on one constructed of wood. They are applicable to buildings of all sizes, can be put up at much less expeuce per square than any other, aud are of course far more durable, Natural History.— It has been ascertained, that there are 1400 lenses in the eye of a drone bee; and Mr. Lyonet, iu bis quarto volume oil the anatomy of a caterpillar, lias proved that that small aud despised insect is furnished with four thousand muscles. Substitute for Yeast.— Three pounds of potatoes, put into three pints of water, boiled till it become a mash, then taken off the lire, and strained through a cullender : one pint, or rather more, of milk then mixed with it, and left to ferment, and this quantity is sufficient for a bushel of flour. Astonishing instance of bodily exertion in a youth ( if only Hi.—- John Hulme, a native of Salford, not long since left his home and went to London; dis- appointed in his expectations, he soon determined to return-; which he did, as he went, a pedestrian ; joining the Defiance coach, on the road, he actually run by Ihe side of the vehicle a distance of 70 miles I— for 20 miles together he kept close to one of the fore- wheels, aild accomplished this amazing journey ( merely for amusement) wilh apparent ease. — This information comes from a respectable manufacturer of that town, who was an outside passenger. Apprentice Fees.— In the Court of King's Bench on Saturday, an action was tried to recovera partot an apprentice lee of 421.— Mr. Park stated that the plaintiff had bound her daughter for two years to the defendant, who was a dress- maker. At the end of ten months, the defendant gave up business, and refused to return a porpoVtiouate pait of the fee. That part was uow lo be decided on by the Jury.— The plaintiff's daughter, all interesting young woman, substantiated the material facts.— Mr. Garrovv, for the defendant, acknow- ledged that he had the unpopular side ofthe question, He knew how moch influence the fears and tremblings of the witness who had just stood before them might hnve on a sentimental jury. His ( Mr. G's) situation reminded him of one in which hss friend, Mr. Park, had sometimes stood ou the northern circuit. In oue of the assize towns, a certain barrister had put such a spell on tbe minds of the people, that, no matte what side he espoused, that instantly became the popular one. His learned friend exerted all his powers against this overbearing popularity, in vain. No matter how he stormed their passions, or pressed upon their reason; no matter Whether he weie sentimental, or sublime; law and logic, fiction and fact, were equally unsuccessful; for when the main question " whethertbey found for the plaintiff or the defendant," came to be asked, their single reply was, " We finds for Muster Ellis." He ( Mr. G.) was alraid that his friend had, at length, discovered this happy art of popularity, and that the Jury would be once again disposed to find " lor Muster Ellis." No ivitnesseson the part of the delendant were called ; and Loid FJlenborough directed the Jury to give a verdict tor half of the fee. Verdict lor the Plaintiff, 211. Sagacity of Animals in their Food.— Many animals, indeed, have their food at hand, and find their table, as it were, ready spread; but the enjoyment of it requires great cousideration, sagacity, and very nice distinction, the table being prepared for various creatures; and what agrees with oue is hurtful to another. Linnxus has lound by 2314 experiments, that bees eat 276 kiuds of herbs, and 21S they will not Triumph's boats, after the late hurricane at Cadiz, picked up near 700 boxes of quicksilver, which, for the purpose of being taken care of, were stowvd in the different store- rooms and the hold; but the heat having caused the boxes to crack, several tons of the subtile fluid ran through the ship, and completely salivated the people ; upwards of three hundred of them were shifted into transports ; several of them have lost all their teeth, one man his tongue; and many others are affected in so serious a manner, that it is feared they cannot recover. The provisions also partook of the pernicious influence of the quicksilver; and the Triumph was ordered to Gibraltar, to be cleared immediately. Bangor Ferry Cause.— This cause, which related to tbe liability of the tolls arising from the Ferry to be rated to the poor's rate of Llandisilio, in Anglesey, after having been three successive Sessions argued at Beaumaris and Carnarvon, before the Judges of the Court of Great Sessions, who decided in favour of the parish, was removed by Writ of Error to the Court of King's Bench, where it was argued last term, and the four Judges were unanimous in reversing the judgment ofthe Court of Great Sessions.— It therefore appears, that tolls arising from an arm of the sea are not subject to the poor's rate. Robbery.•— About the hour of one, on Friday morn- ing, an attempt was made to break into the shop of Mr. Moses Levi, pawnbroker, of Glocester. The villains had removed part of the shutters by force when they were alarmed by a waggoner who was going out with his team, and effected their escape The family being immediately called up, two pair of men's shoes were found, which the robbers left behind in the precipitancy - of their retreat. This led to a suspicion of a waterman, named Wm. Hill, who was seen to go on board the barge he belonged to, at a very early hour that morning, without shoes. He was accordingly taken into custody on Friday, when he acknowledged one pair of the shoes to be his, alledging that he lost them in the streets. He was remanded for further examination. Another waterman, to whom it is supposed tbe other shoes belonged, has absconded. Hops. — Several persons at Sydney ( New South Wales) have begun to cultivate the hop vine. A Mr. Squires, in 1808, planted two acres, from which he gathered 5 cwt. cf clear hops. Last year he had four acres in, which he poled about the middle of November last; they continued to look remarkably well, the weather being moist and favourable until the middle of December. The perceptible growth of the vines being from 12 to 18 inches in the course of a day and night. Several hot days, however, so affected the vines, that though the crop was estimated at a ton, not more than one third of that quantity was obtained. ELEPHANT HUNT.—[ From a Calcutta Paperl] — Authentic particulars of a late adventurous excursion from Hazaree Baug, in pursuit of two wild elephants. " On the 24th instant, at midnight, information was received that two wild elephants of ah uncommon size had made their appearance within a few hundred yards of Cantonments, and close to a village, the inhabitants of which were in the greatest alarm. No time was lost in dispatching all the public and private elephants at the station in pursuit of them; but, at day break, ou the 25th, advice was brought, that their very superior size and apparent fierceness had rendered all attempts for their seizure unavailing, and that the most experi- enced driver we had was dangerously hurt ; the elephant on which he rode haying been struck to the ground by one of the wild oues, which with its com- panion had afterwards retreated to a sugar- cane planta- tion, adjoining to the village of Juddeespoore. The guns were then immediately ordered to this place. But it being desirable, in the first instance, to try every means of catchiug the elephants, the inhabitants of the neighbourhood were assembled, with the assistance of above- mentioned Mr. Whicher, died of a fever, which was bi ought on by his great zeal to save the lives of some sick soldiers, who, on their return from the disastrous expedition to Spain, about months since, dropt down in the town.— He has left a wife arid large family to lament his loss. On the following day died, Mr. James Ridgway, son of the late Tristram Ridgway, surgeon, of Ashton- under- Litis, of a mortification in the arm, in consequence of opening the body of a mail whose death was occasioned by the same complaint. Mr. CoBBETt.— Mrs. Clarke thus speaks < if this gentleman in her new publication entitled " TUB RIVAL PRINCES :"-— " When I was the great kev- stone that held the arch upon which the fabric of Col. Wardle's fame entirely rested, Mr. Cobbett said mighty pretty things with respect to me ; but now the of his friend has loosened its security, and I have let him into a gulph of deserved public odium— A?, to support his favourite theme, for private reasons, has dis- covered, all at once, that I am a very infamous woman, in whom there is no truth to be found " Nature has bestowed on the human mind an amiable kind of weakness, which frequently induces an author to believe, that his sentiments, though as changeable as the weathercock, are never observed, and that his reader has a happy stupidity of not finding out when the vane was in the west, and when it is in the north! This changeability ill Mr. Cobbett, whose abilities I admire, obliges me to open the secrets of the prison- house, and shew that the intellect of even clever men is heavily fettered, and quite the slave to accidental circumstances ; which strengthen the philosopher's position, that there is but Utile difference between the en- lightened and ignorant man, all being alike characterised by imperfection ! During the Investigation, Lord Folkestone brought Mr. Cobbett to Westborne- place, who was pleased to say a number of civil things lo me ( all of which were very opposite to his late public sentiments) ; and observed, with much warmth of feeling, that the only tiling he was arigry at was, that I should ever have lived with such a man as the Duke of York. As / knew the cause of this remark, I instantly irerkrii the ebulltion of his malice, by observing, that though I had been drawn into measures of hostility against my late friend, yet still he was a gentleman arid a prince, who was adorned by many excellent qualities; and therefore I begged to assure him, that he would not raise himself in my opinion by any personal reflections ou the Duke of York, which 1 knew arose from his having been once disappointed at not dining with his Royal Highness at my table, after the party was fixed. " That the reader may enter completely into the cause of Mr. Cobbett's dislike to that Prince, and Ills motives for having become his determined foe, I must be allowed to relate the circumstance. Accident, 1 believe, suggested a political party at my house; accordingly Mr, Cobbelt and Sir Francis Bnrdett received cards of invitation, and were, as they expected, to have dined in company with the Duke of Yotk. Within a few days of the dinner, the Duke informed me, in the most delicate manner, that he had not the least Objection to dine with these gentlemen as private individuals ; yet, as their hostility was so obvious to the Government, it would not touch ; goats feed on 449, passing by li( j others; sheep are fond of, and thrive on, 3s7, whereas from 141 others, they immediately turn aside ; horses delight iu 202 herbs, aud shew a manifest aversion to 212; swine fatten on 72, and make no account of 171. There are consequently several hundreds of vegetables of which these tame auiuials distinguish the forms and Rajah —— Sing, and deep pits were prepared, on the edge of the sugar- cane, iu which our elephants and people with the utmost difficulty contrived to retain these animals during the course of the day.— When the pits were reported ready, we repaired to the spot; and they were with much dexterity driven into them ; but unfortunately one of the two did not prove suffici- ently deep ; aud the elephant, which escaped from it, was seen, in the presence of many Witnesses, to assist his companion with his trunk to extricate himself.— Both were however with much exertion brought back to the sugar- cane, and no particular symptoms of vice or fierceness having appeared in the course of the day, it was thought advisable to make another trial to catch them. " The Bildars therefore were set to work, to deepen the old, and prepare new pits against day- break, when it was proposed to make the final attempt. At four o'clock in the morning, however, they burst through all the guards, and making for a village al about three miles distance, eutered it with so much rapidity, that the horsemen, who galloped iu front of them, had not time to apprize every inhabitant of his danger ; and it is lamentable to add, that one poor man was torn limb from limb, a child trodden to death, and two females wounded. Their destruction now became absolutely necessary; and as they shewed no inclination to quit the large village in which the mischief was done, we gained time to bring up the 4- pounders, from which they soon received several round shot, aud abundance of grape, each. The largest of the two was brought to the ground, by a round shot iu the head ; but, after remaining there for a quarter of au hour ap- parently lifeless, he got up again as vigorous as ever. The desperation of both at this period exceeded ail description. They made repeated charges of near an hundred yards at the guns; and, had it not been for the uncommon s: eadiness and bravery of the artillery- men, who more than ouce turned them off, by shots in the head and body when within a few paces of tbera, mauy dreadtul casualties must have occuricd. We were now obliged to desist, for want of ammunition, and before a fresh supply could be obtained, the elephants quitted tho village, aud, though streaming with blood from an hundred wouuds, proceeded witti inconceivable rapidity towards Hazaree Bang ; they were at length brought up by the horseuieu aud our elephants, wheu within a very short distance of a crowded bazar; and ultimately, after many renewals of tlie most formidable and ferocious attacks upon the guns, they gave up the contest with their lives. Nine- teen four- pound shot have beeu taken out of their bodies, aud eight or ten more it is supposed, re- mained." Cautions to the Piofession.— Died, on the 4th June, Mr. Charles Cave, surgeon, of Peterslield ; Ihe circumstances of whose death must excite respect tor his memory, and much sympathy for his loss. On the Saturday ge'nuight previous to his death, a sea faring man, who had been ill lor a few days preceding, was attacked, whilst at Feterslield, with a violent inflammation on the lungs ; and after being attended several times during ihe day by Messrs. Cave and Whicher, he died the next morning. The Surgeons, being of various opinions as to ihe real cause of his death, agreed to open the body ; which they did ou Monday morning, and found the lungs in a complete state of putiefaction. They afterwards sewed up the body, in doing which tliey pricked their fingers; and, in the evening, both of them were seizes! with violent pains iu the arm, which soon extended to iiear| y" the whole of the body.— Mr. Cave, after enduring the most excruciating pains, died on the following Monday. Mr. Whicher is still alive, though suffering extreme pain: but his hand and arm have been opened by several of the most skilful Surgeons of the neigh- bouitiood, aud from the metropolis; and a discharge being obtained from the wouuds, it is hoped bis life will be saved.— The death of Mr. Cave is tne cause of universal regret, lor he was not more respected for his abilities and gene. rat de- meanour, ttian he was tor his humanity. He was always forward iu attending to the wants of tiie sick sailors and soldiers who mignt be passing through the town, in whose be prudent for him to be present. I felt the propriety of the Duke's excuse, which arose from no personal dislike, and consequently put the party off. A gentleman who was to have been of the party, afterwards told me of Cobbett's anger at being disappointed, and assured me that he would not forget the insult; which time has proved lie hes not, fro ill the unmerciful manner with which he has followed the object of his malice." HOUSE OF LORDS— FRIDAY, JUNE 8. INSOLVENT DEBTORS. Lord REDESDALE moved the second reading of his Bill for ' he more effectual and permanent Relief of Insolvent' Debtors. He said, that the Bill was founded on the same principle as the cessib bonorum of the Scotch Courts, namely, that when a Debtor had given his all to his Creditors, they'Could not con- fine his person; and this he proposed to come under tbe cognizance of the Court of King's Bench.— Lord F. LT. r. f- BORCUotf applauded the principle and the motives ofthe Bill, but which, as it now stands, is altogether impracticable, and cannot bfe carried into execution, unless it were possible to lengthen the period now allowed, so as to enable the Courts of Law to go through double the work which they are now able to do.— Lord REDE- DALE replied, that if the Bill was deficient in machinery it would be but lair ( if the noble Lords approved the principle of it) to allow it to go to the Committee, where it might receive the necessary alterations — After some further observations, the Bill was read a second time, and ordered to be committed on Thursday. service, it may almost be said, his lite fell a sacrifice. 11 was in the 36tn year of his age, and has left a young WUIOA w ho deeply mourns his loss. It is a remarkable cucnitisun. that the late Mr. Whicher, ( of Petsrsfield) tamer ot tile AFPAINS OF SPATN. The MARQUIS of LANSDOWNE called the attention of their Lordships to the papers relative to the affairs of Spain, which hail so long lain upon their table. His Lordship went over the different unfortunate campaigns in that country with great ability ; and concluded bv saying '• he did cherish the hope, and would cherish it tothe Inst, that if ever Europe was saved, this country vvoitld be an important agent in that great event. But it could never be accomplished by rash expeditious like these, without consulting the means of our allies; and de- stroying our own force, by dividing it on different hazards.— The Jesirable object was only to be achieved by a prudent u= e of the resources with which Providence had blessed us. Such was not the use made by his Majesty's present Counsellors, and it was important that their Lordships should be convinced of this, from ihe insufficiency of what they bad already at- tempted. The moVe so, indeed, as they were in some measure parties in these calamities, by pnssnig oVer, without notice, the errors ofthe former campaign. Ou these grounds he would move two Resolutions. They were to the following effect: " 1. That it appears to this House, after the most attentive examination of the papers laid before them, relative tothe late Campaign ia Spain, that the safety of tbe army was im- providently aud uselessly risked, and every lo s and calamity suffered, without ground on which to expect any good result, and that ths whole did end ill the retreat of the army; " 2. That, previous to entering on this Campaign, Ministers did not procure the necessary inclination ol the state of Spain, or of its military resources— of the supplies that could be af- forded, & c. as the most obvious policy required ; aud that the result of this rashness and ignorance was a result the most calamitous." Marquii WELLESLEY defended the conduct of Ministers with regard to Spain ; and concluded his very eloquent and animated speech m the following words: " The effort made by the Spaniards was one which involves the security of this country, and, as an adviser to the Crown, I feel myself bound to recommend, that sd long as thertf is a spirit of resistance iu Spain, every assistance should be given to that power by this country. The marks of dissention which have appeared, are not to damp our expectations. I, tor one, can see no ground for fear and dismay. The apparent dissolution of lhe State, is only a presage of now life. Over this country I would extend my care, it is here alone that the arms of France can be op- posed. Yes, my Lords, I would vvateh over the struggles and agonies of the people— I would encourage the last breath of li- berty and independence.— It is a cause which cannot be ad- vocated with too much zeal— nor can any thing I say be charged with exaggeration. It is a cause which contains in itself every thing gieat and excellent, of glory and of majesty. It rouses the strongest passions ofthe mind, in unison with the best dictates of a well regulated understanding." The noble Marquis concluded by opposing the resolutions. 1 ii the farther progress of the debate, Lords Moira, Holland, and Darnley, supported the motion; and Lords Sidinouth, and Borringdon, opposed it.— At three o'clock the House divided : for the motion 73— against it 139.

The tliiirl reading of the Irish Arms Bill, after an oppo- sition by Mr. P. MOOUE, was postponed till Wednesday next. There has beeh a considerable fa'I of rain irt many parts of the country, though the drought near town has been so great that the meadows will not yield more thart half an average crop of h i v. The rain on Sunday evening fell iu torrents in Kent, attended by Violent claps of thuuder and lightning, the most vivid that has been witnessed for years, which did much mischief to several trees in the neighbourhood. Ths rain also fell in considerable quantities, about the same time, at St. Albau's, and various parts of Hertfordshire, anil likewise in Middlesex. Bullion:.— The Committee appointed to inquire in'o tfte causes of the scarcity of Bullion have made a com- prehensive Report, in which the important subject of their investigation is treated in all its bearings. The Committee have recommended that the Bank should I e required to resume its payments in cash iu two years hence. Mr. Windham's executors have authorized the pub- lication of the following statement:—" That a great majority, that is five dut of seven eminent surgeons, consulted on the propriety of cutting out thu tumour, advised the operation. And the subsequent inspection of the tumour has so far justified their opinion, as to shew that it was schirrous, and that a cancer must have been the result." The Contractors for the late Lottery have,' it is said, drawn a Blank; their loss from tickets, remaining un- sold being little short of 50,0001. His Royal Highness the Duke of Cumberland has declared that he will not reside in hii Apartments iu St. James's Palace, iti future. The bill for mitigating the penalties of the act of the 7 th of James 1. against lewd worn, en having bastard children, enacts, that instead of making them subject to commitment, and set to work until they shall find security for good behaviour, by which they might bs imprisoned for life, they are to be imprisoned for a limited time, and liiay be discharged at the discretion of two magistrates, upon a reasonable expectation of their reformation.
