Ulh March, 1810. six * erv INNUMERABLE nostrums tor nervous disorders aud debility ol body aud mind, are so frequently ad- vertiaed, aud puffed with such unblushing effrontery, that the proprietor of Dr. TAYI. OR's RESTORATIVE PILLS is unwilling to obtrude his important discovery upon tbe public, in a way which is considered disreputable by most medical men who bave received a regular and liberal edu- cation. Unwilling, however, as he is to put himself in competition with professed Quacks, he must in justice to himself and to Ihe public state, lhat Dr. Taylor's Restorative Pills ore the safest and most efficacious Remedy ever yet re commended thus publicly, for weak, nervous, aud debilitated constitutions, and for all Ihe baleful train of disorders vihich are so suie tooveitaW those who indulge their intemperate appetites and desites, or who lead a sedentary anil inactive life.— Taken in a morning, afrer a night of inebriety and debauch, they immediately rfcttore the stomach' toils proper tone and strength, and expel the noxious foines of ihe liquor, and the consequent paius and giddiness, from the Head. It is not, perhaps, too presuming in the proprietor of the Restorative Pills, lo pledge himself that no other advertised medicine for nervous disorders is half to deserving of public application as Dr. TAVLOR'S RESTORATIVE PILLS. The trial of a single Box will prove this assertion. The Remedy is sold wholesale and retail, by the Pro- prietor's Agents, Barclay and Sons, No. 9. i, flcet- market; and retail, price 4s.

IIOLLANH.— We gave in our Postscript of last week an extract from the Decree, which annexes the whole of Holland to France. The manner in which the business is wrought up, evidently shews that that country is doomed to suffer more than she does at present. Napoleon in this decree, which is extremely long, complains of his brother failing to fulfil the essential duties for the safety and prosperity of the Dutch nation ; and states the necessity of the French Government looking to the interest of that country, which will be the more promoted by being placed under its laws. Napoleon refuses the regency of the Queen during the miuority of her son. Amsterdam is to be reckoned the third city of the Empire, ( Paris and " Rome are the first aud second), and where the meetings concerning the State are to be held. Thus is the fate at that unhappy country, for the present, sealed. But this is not the only injury done to the oppressed Dutch by the common tyrant of the Continent. He has also ordered, that holders of national stock shall, from a certain time, be paid uo more than one- third of the interest upon their capitals in the funds; and that the reinainiug two thirds shall cease to be considered as national debt; so that, in fact, by this sweeping clause, the national creditors arc defrauded of full two- thirds ot their property. On account of this egregious breach of public faith, a general consternation prevails through- out every part of Holland, and which will of course be followed by the. ruin of thousands. As soon as the fact was communicated, every thing bore the most dismal aspect, and a melancholy gloom pervaded every coun- tenance.— The funds instantly dropped 15 per cent, with every prospect of a still greater depression im- mediately taking place; and thus have the wretched Hollanders, who in the commencement had not suffi- cient spirit to assert their independence, already felt a part of tho sad evils which they are doomed to endure under the more immediate domination of their cruel and implacable oppressor. The fate of Holland exhibits a dreadful lesson to all people not to suffer the first encroachment on their lights. It was the dread of the rich Stockholders of Holland that repressed all national spirit— every appeal to the sense of the nation was discountenanced. The Pres was stifled— the Lion must not be chafed. It was by submission ouly that they could avoid destruction— the the fatal consequences of tnis torpor I The rich have had time to rnu away, but their country is undone! Certain it is, however, that the shock in point of credit will be less fe't in England than if it had been inflicted some time ago. Immense treasure has been withdrawn from the grasp of the Tyrant. Time hats been given for the removal of the funds which Englishmen had in the couu. rv, and even for that of the prudent Dutchmen themselves. It is even said, that King Louis has made an ample deposit iu Great Britain and America, for his intended retreat from the cares of Sovereignty. The Spaniards have now a proof of the manner in which their country is to be treated, should it ever be subdued. They cannot obtain , peace and repose hy submission, however sordid and humihtating: if not at war against their oppressor, they must be at war for him, and that as long as the world affords him any ene- mies to fight against. The conscriptive troops of Spain, if any are got together, may be sent to restrain or slaughter the indignant or resisting Dutch; whilst Holland, in return, must yield her sons to aid their Tyrant in the devastation of Spaiu; for it will be recol- lected, that among the motives stated by Champagny, for the annexation of Holland, one is, the rendering its military, as well as naval, resources more productive. " The war budget," he says, " has hitherto scarcely afforded a sufficiency for maintaining the garrisons aud lfi battalions." But this evil, as well as the insuffi- ciency of he Dutch navy, are to be remedied by the incorporation of that counlry with France, " aud a great number of troops are to be assembled on the Scheldt and the Tetel, in order to dispute with the British Government the sovereignty of the seas ;" or, in fact, to lie deputed by tlie universal Oppressor on any other errand of blood which he may chuse. These arc the sole purposes for which he rules over mankind ; and in compassionating the unhappy situation of Spain, it has occurred to us, as a kind of comfort, as wo trust it has to that brave people tnemselves, that even were they content, from the natural abhorrence of endless massacre, to debase their name, aud bend theii necks to the will of the Conqueror, they would still not obtain ! that for which they would have made so infinite a sa- j crificc— release from the miseries of war: for it is evident that it is not with a view, to the subjugation of ation : next a Bonaparte for a King, together with all the miseries of Holland, as set forth in Champagny's report; and, lastly, as a remedy for these— incorpora- tion with France, and a French Council to administer the affairs of the Province of Spain. i Spain that he is nlisiug the conscription there; he has ; other objects iu view, in the accomplishment of which j Spanish blood must be shed, j Besides, let the Spaniards now attend to the recent alarming monition, which he has given them iu his conduct to the Dutch, it is, as lie professes at least, ! to place a Brother upou the throne of Spain that he is | ravaging the Peninsula. Why, he had a brother upou > the throne of Holland, and that did not satisfy him: I nothing less thau the incorporation of the country with France would do. What pledge is there then th;> t Kiug of LONDON. WEDNESDAY, JULY IS. The explosion of the enemy's magazines, before Ciudad Rodrigo, is spoken of in a letter from Oporto as being awful in the extreme : it was heard, it is said, 12 or 14 leagues off. The extent of the mischief is not yet made known, but it must have been very con- siderable ; great apprehensions, however prevail as to the fate of Ciudad Rodrigo ; the noble defenders have most undoubtedly sustained the attack with much heroism, aud may be able for some time longer to resist the powerful force of the enemy ; but from tbe tone of the private letters, the fall of that place is expected. Accounts from Yineros say that Mequinenza is at last taken, and the French statement is thus confirmed. Considering its comparative weakness, it made a long and gallant defence. Early ou Friday morning, Colonel Thornton gave information that Mr. Hubbard, an attorney, of South- amptoii- buildings, and Mr. Wratheri, of Gray's inn- square, were going to fight a duel at Chalk Farm that morning. Mr. Read, iii consequence, dispatched La- vender, w ith a warrant, who accompanied by Colonel Thornton, found Mr. W. at breakfast, at his chambers, and couveyed him to the office, when he gave bail himself in 500l. and two sureties in 250l. each to keep the peace. Mr. Hubbard hearing that there was a warrant out against him, attended at Ihe office, and en- tered into similar securities. The dispute originated in a bet at Newmarket. Oil Salurday, pursuant to notice, a General Meeting of the. Catholics of Ireland took place at the Farming Repository, in Stcpheii's- greeu, when Dr. Sheridan was called to the Chair. Mr." Hay, the Secretary, read the Resolutions of the last General Assembly ; and, upon, the motion of Dr. Dromgoole, Mr. O'CIorm& n pro- ceeded to report the measures which had been adopted by the Committee, and ended by proposing Resolutions, tending, to pledge the Catholic body to a contiuued system of petition to parliament for redress of the griev- ances under which they suffered.— The motion was opposed by Mr. Keogh, and an animated debate took place in cousequence, during which Alessrs. O'Connor, Clinch, and O'Connel, spoke with considerable effect. The question of adjournment until the 2d of November, was forthwith proposed and carried, by which time the opinions of the Catholics of the several counties may be ascertained, aud the propriety of petitioning determined upon. In the interim tiie former Committee are to continue their usual functions. Letters from Spain slate, that the French Govern- ment at Madrid has sold, by public sale, the estates of all the Spanish Grandees and other great landed pro- prietors, who have emigrated to Cadiz, aud adhere to the cause ot Ferdinand VII. A letter from Constantinople, oi the date of May 10, states as follows :— " The measures which Government recently adopted to maintain the tranquillity of this capital have been attended by the most happy result. Mauv of the incendiaries have already been arrested and executed ; others have left the town aud concealed themselves. A great number have been banished, so that we may now hope that the capital will soon be purged of the greatest, part of the mutineers. ' The efforts of the Porte to establish older and tranquillity iu the Pro- vinces, in order to employ all its forces against exterior eue- nies, have not been attended with similar success. We are assured, that Ihe Russians are making dispositions for passing the Danube, near its mouth, and that their army is assembling iu the environs of Silistria. It is at least certain lhat th Grand Seignior has lately ordered the Caimakan, by a paiti- cular rescript, to send reinforcements and money to the camp of the Grand Vizier. The Grand Seignior no. v occupies, with all his Court, the summer residence of Beschiklac.— I' eviuus to his departure, fie took measures . for succouring a great number of families, who, in consequence of the late fire, . vere without asylums He has also permitted every Mussul- man to receive into his house these unfortunates, whatever be the difference of their religion," The Funds.— The temporary decline of the fuuds is to be ascribed solely to the impression made < 111 tiie money market, through the demand of bank- notes by the country bankers, in cousequenec of the present run upou them. There are about 7 50 country banks.— Let it only be granted that on the present emergency they shall have had occasion to sell stock to put them- selves into possession of only £ 10,000 011 an average, as an extra sum of bank- notes, to answer their own notes in local circulation, and thus a sum of 7,000,000 and a half is taken from town, to be deposited in these country shops. This must make a sensation for a week ; but these notes will as certainly return to the metropolis as the blood flows back from the limbs to the heart. This slight shock which credit has suffered ( arising undoubtedly in the first instance from unwise speculation) will speedily subside, aud, like a thunder storm to the air, it will serve to purify the trading hemisphere. I11 the last sessions of Parliament, 430 new acts received the Royal assent; 120 relating to the Revenue, & c. for ameliorating and explaining ol laws— for mak- ing local improvements— for the encouragement of our manufactures, aud for the general good oi' tiie people ; 250 for enclosing aud draining of auits, making turn- Gf 1 the acknowledgment of Joscpti Bonaparte as the CRAMP in the stomach, legs, &.

A genlleinan of fashion and distinction having lately re- turned to London fiom making a tour through England, Ireland, and Scotland, in his publication of his ' Travels, says " For my part 1 have uuiversally smiled ou reading different adveiiisements to cure every disease incidental to the human frame, and was only astonished that any of his Majesty's subjects should remain ill for one day, when cures are offered theui through all the Newspapers in the United Kingdom ; however, in justice to Mr. NEWTON fur his excellent com- position of his RESTORATIVE TOOTH POWuBR, I , am bound to say, thai my iutentions were entirely, fiustrated 011 my tiavels, as I bad determined, ( fiominy own knowledge ot iis innocent and txcelleut composition), to recommend it generally, but to my very gieal astonishment and satisfac- tion, I found it universally usfed in all tbe respectable families 1 visited, who knew how to appreciate its virtue as well as my- self.— Fashionable ' I'raiels, Vcb. 2' i, 1S10.— Sold wholesale, by Shaw 3nd Edwards, 6t3, St. Paul's Church- yard, Loudon; aud ictail by EDUOWES, Bylhell, Morris, and Newling, Shrewsbuiy ; Riugeway, and Procter, Drayton; Chester, Newcastle; Silvester, Newport; Kowke, Stafford; Mobbs, Wellington; Smith, Iron- bridge, and every Medicine Ven- der in the Kingdom, iii boxes at 2s. 9d. each.

Wnat can the Spaniards uahappily the seutence cannot be carried into execu- do for Bonaparte more in ihe way of submission than 1 tjon. There are, however, many devout persons, who the Dutch have done? Have they not sacrificed their j are anxious to render every assistance to the u. ifortu- cominerce.'— Have th y not involved themselves in an uate poutiff, and who afford him m iny comforts. inexLricable labyrinth of poverty and debt?

Can Spain do or suffer more, even when she has Bonaparte to reign over her ? for this is all tlie mischief that she is as yet endeavouring to repel. But should she at last bend to tins threatened calamity, will her sorrows end here ? May- she, not be subjected to a fresh course of slaughter, in order to avoid the greatest oi' degradations— an annexation to France— the loss of her very name and political existence i— The. Mediter- ranean will form a better frontier for the Great Nation, to the South, thau Zuider Zee lo the North.

His Royal Highness the Duke of Cumberland now passes a considerable part ot every day, when the weather is tolerable, at his house at Ivew, ami walks about Ketv Green unattended. The state of the w omuls iu the head will not yet permit Ins Royal Highness to wear a hat, aud he uses a black velvet cap as a substi- tute. The wounds iu the hand are nearly well; but it is necessary to keep the fingeis at full stretch, which is at- tended with considerable pain. Jlis itoyai Highness looks pale and rather thin, from loss of blood; but appears olherwise almost recovered, and we trust will bo soon completely re- established. The Duke generally returns to Carlton- bouse to sleep.

Jeffrey, tiie seaman, according to a letter from Bos- ton, inserted in a New York Journal, was on the 6tll ult,. at Wenhatn, State of New England. The public curiosity had been so stiongly excited with respect to him, that he was visited hy vast numbers, and found so ample a provision in Lheir generosity, as to be relieved from the necessity of labouring for his subsistence. A young lady of the name of Taudy, of a respectable family in Leicestershire, strangled herself 011 Friday at her uncle's house, iu Titchbounie- place, by fastening a cord to the bed- post, and fixing the other end in a noose round her neck. The manner iu which she was found evinced the strongest resolution to accomplish her fatal purpose. She had been sent to her uncle's to bo out of the way of a suitor, of whose addresses her parents dis- approved. A Coroner's Inquest has broughL iu a verdict— Lunacy. THURSDAY, JULY 19. From American papers to the - Cth u! t. we learn, that the John Adams had at length arrived at New York with her dispatches. In the official American papers we find the correspondence which passed between the Marquis Wellesley and Mr. Piuckncy, relative to what blockades of France, instituted by Great Britain during the present war, before the first of Jan. 1807, are understood to be in force ; and the correspondence! between Gen. Armstrong and the Duke of Cadore. The determination of Bonaparte to sell the American property seized iu Spain, produced froin General Arm- strong a spirited note to the French Minister ( too long for insertion at present) ; in which he exposes the falsehood of Bonaparte's assertion, that Americi has no grounds of complaint against France ; anil, that Ameri- can vessels had been seized in French, Dutch, and Spanish ports, because the Americans had seized French vessels. He puts the case strongly between the conduct of Great Britain to America, and France to America. Surely," he says, " if it be the duty of the United States to resent the theoretical usurpations of the British Orders of November, 1S07, it cannot be less their duty to complain of the daily and practical outrages on the part of France." The Du've of Cadore maii. es no reply to itiis spirited letter.— Several letters are also given from General Armstrong to his Govern- ment, stating that Murat had sold the American cargoes lie had seized, and poekeled the produce, and that Bonaparte had done the same with the American vessels taken in the ports of Spain. 1 Accounts received from the coast, of France speak of a considerable army having assembled in the western provinces of that Empire, which, it is giveo out, is in- tended to serve in an Expedition preparing against some part of the British dominions: from the situation of the. armament, it is supposed that the threatened quarter is Ireland. It is farther stared, lhat unusual activity pre- vails iu the Dock- vard aud harbour of Brest, not only iu fitting out a fleet, but preparing for the reception of that now iyiug in the Scheldt, hich is said to oe fully equipped for service, chiefly manned by Danish seamen. The King of Westphalia, it is said, will take the com- mand iu person I— This latter statement is not calculated to impress us with much alann respecting the conse- quences of a naval action with such an Admiral; nis appointment, however, we strongly doubt, but for the fact of his having been lately much consulted by Na- poleon on subjects, which it is generally understood relate to the French navy, which he asserts shall, in a short time, rival that of the present " Tyrant of the seas." It is generally believed that Government has received intelligence of the fall of Ciud. ul Rodrigo, and til it in consequence Lord Wellington had taken a position, in expectation of Masnena immediately pushing across th J Agueda, iu which his flanks might be less exposed than iu that which he lately occupied. It is supposed a battle has before this time been fought, which will pro- bably decide the fate of Portugal. All necessary pre- cautions had been taken— the position that covers three points of embarkation has beeu strongly fortifbJ, and all our ships are in readiness to receive the troops, if it be found necessary to embark them. The Marquis de Roinanihal beeu at head- quarters, and assisted at a Council of War. Lord Wellington, it appears, had issued a peremptory order, directing every 111.1a fit for service to iie ia readiness to leave Lisbon at a minute's notice; accord- ingly some regiments of Militia, aud the remainder of the 83d, were preparing for their departure.— A great number of youug men of tne first families, wno had been training to tue use of the musket, were to do duty in their absence. The distress produced in some parts of the country, by the diminution of confidence in paper circulation, is severely felt, as appears from til 1 following extract oi a letter from Salisbury, dated July 15: " t'tie disiresj in this place is extreme, it being witn the greatest dif- ficulty provisious can be procured here, as we have nothing apparently in circulation but the paper ot tile place, which is no longer current. On Saturday niglit numbers ot women and children were seen in a deplorable condition, from the unfortunate pies- sure under which we at present labour. It is hoped that some means will bo immediately tikaa to remedy tile evil." It is a curious fact, that a person who possesses only 651. three per cent, consols, sii iulJ receive for a year's dividend ll. 19;. whilst another who fias 70l. iu the same fund should receive only II. 17s. 10J.— This cir- cumstance, to ttiose vvhj are not couversauL in the ; operations- of the property tax, will appear strange i ludeed. The truth, however, is, thit no dcdactioa for property tax is made by the bank of England upou any dividend that amounts to less tiiaa Si. A mechanic at Augsburgh, named John Frederick Iletnle, has ciaime. l tbe premium of a million of franks offered by Bonaparte to the constructor of the best machine for spinning flax. Heinle's machine is a saif- operating one.

If the ancient doctrine ofthe metempsychosis could be realised, we think it would be a suitable punishment for a beiug, who, for the sake of a few gumeas, would thus torment a noble aud useful auuual, to be himself transformed into a post- horss, fastened in the tramels of a dust cut, or .. uarncssed in a hackney- coach, aud subjected to t ie a, U of a humane driver.

Two policies u- ere opened at Lloyd's on Thursday j one of them to pay 100 . guineas for 25 down, if Cadiz agreed, that a proposition should be made to the Creditors, to recfive the full amount Tof their debts, wi Jt interest,, in four equal payments, at 6, 9, 12, and 18 mouths. This arrangement has given general satis- faction. There are to- day two fa. lures in the mercantile market, not very considerable, and one principal one ( Thomas Cope and Co.) and several minor ones in the Stock'Exchange. To relieve the general pressure of commercial distress, " the Bank, yesterday and the day before, liberally discounted to" an extent far beyond any thing they had hitherto done, it is said thjit a sum of six millions iu Bank of England notes has been transmitted to the country, for the purpose of supporting the credit of several Country Bank's, ' It, is also said to he in the contemplation of Governnrcnt to indemnify the Bank iu the issue of three millions, to be lent on Col6nial produce or other property, as an accommoda- tion at Ihe present conjuncture, vihen public credit has received so severe a blow. . . Ltb€ l*.~ Ar. the Court of King's Bench, on Thursday, John Gale Jones was found guilty of publishing a libel against' Lord Castlereagh, and Mr. Finnerty pleaded guilty to a charge of the same kind against his lordship. Both' defendants were ordered into custody. Sentence will be prononticed next term. Yesterday being settling day for Consols at the S'tock Exchange, a greater scene, of confusion and distress, perhaps, was never witnessed at that place', since the return of Lord Lauderdale from Turin. From eight to ten Stockholders were declared defaulters; and more are expected this. day. In proportion as the number ot' futures' eitcreascd, the Funds . became worse, until surrenders to the enemy before that day twelvemonth ; ; Omnium was tiearlv at 3 per cent, discount, and Consols ay i00. for 40 guineas . down, if Peace he j about 68i.

The keels of foQrJ(> thcr ships of equal din e sions and force, are ordered to be im- mediately laid on the same slips.

I It is believed in Holland that King Louis had either ! gone direct to AmcVica or' England.—'' 1' hc latter place is named as the more likely.

These men, being of fair conduct, would be good Guar, diani of the road against. villains.

If petticoat influence were too predominant, then with we suit, able device ; and so ou ; I venture to a. sert that a press- gang would never be requisite, except lo lay hold on pickpockets for som< 5 SERVILE condition--. It may be. said that these marine cottages would afford shelter to invaders. The very idea of invasion is contemptible, so U>)! g as wo re'atn our naval Superiority ; » nd if Uo not EVEIt retain il, we deserve to he invaded, and our invaders ought to have shelter m the houses of the - uilo- s. Supposing therefore 1* 6,000 cottages on the coast around as, there would he hduse- room for 80 or 40,000 sailors, and the expense of building tlteift at <£ 100 cach would be ,£ 1,000,000. ' These cot, would serve as mai. ir telegraphs with a few flags or rockets, and would instantly give intelligence of ships in si^ ht. POSTSCRIPT. LOA'DOJY, Monday Night, July 23, 1810 To- day a Packet with a mail arrived fiom Rio de Janiero. ' The Letters by this conveyance state that the people are in much better spirits than foimerl. v on two accounts, the one on account of the marriage of the brother of Ferdinand VII. to a Princess of the House of Uraganza ; the other, in conse- quence of the favourable change in regard to trade. In ho-, four of the tnairiage a suspension of business took place for several days, which were spent iu grand fetes, at. d splendid festivals. Cortlllieiciul tiausactioiis were going on with activity. The remittances of the mail 011 this occasion are unusually large, aud many of litem were addressed to the Houses which free- quarters; for there is nut one ' word about payment j s, to the poor Dutchmen, Although Ihe [ eople of Amsterdam did not attempt ! any open resistance to the entrance of the French troops, and of Lehrun ( whom Bonaparte has insultingly stjled his Stadtholder), into their city j yet they have taken a very unequivocal way of expressing their feel- ings ; for almost every French soldier that is found walking about at night is sure to be put to tteathi So many of llicm have fallen iu t lis way, that it has been deemed necessary to forbid any French soldiers from quitting their quarters after a certain hour. The Imperial hope of " rivalling our navv," will, wi trust, he encouraged by Bonstpa, te » batterers. This is the only way iu which he caube euectually convinced that he is not infallible, We have no reason to wish for any other species of warfare than the naval efforts of France. A number of reports received from different quar- ters speak of a battle hav ing taken place On the Por- tuguese frontier, between the British, and French armies, in which the latter was defeated yi ith great loss. II was in the beginning of the week that a rumour to this effect prevailed in Holland, as we learn hy Idlers ( coin the Tcxel. We have also seen a letter from Gravcscud, announcing the arrival, of a ship from Corunna in eight davs, which brings similar accounts from that place of tbe 10th instant. , Some New York papers, to the 20th June, were received this day. They estimate the loss from the seizure of American property by Bonaparte, al twenty- five million-! of dollars ! MBBCAMUC Cniiuir.— The alarming shock given to commercial confidence, has led to an enquiry into the stale of the accounts of the principal defaulters. The following particulars of the lieuls aud credits of houses were presented to the committee appointed to enquire into their affairs. The members of the committee were Messrs.

The failures have been augmented to- day by two defaulters i'n Lloyd's Coffee- house, by whom several individuals from that House have considerably suffered. A Mr B. in the sugar trade, either from a depression of spirits or disappointments in bus ness, has put an ' end to his existence by cutting his throat, T'lie funds continue to rally a little; consols left oil" at lor money, and 683 for the account.

By a Swedish . mail Winch arrived last night, we have received A Confirmation of the accounts of the advantages obtained by the Russians over the'Turks. ' The former have tukvn possession of nil the fortresses on the Banks df the Danuhf, aud have penetrated far into Bulgaria Even Silislria, which was last year besieged in vain, has fallen ; ami . the G. antl Vizier, rnsiead of being able to relieve or retake that place, hns retired to Schuinla, where be will endeavour lo cheek the lapitl advance of the enemy. It is again stated, with confidence, that the new Empress of France is pregnant, to the great apparent joy of all tl. e Continental Editors. Great anxiety prevai's in expectation of the arrival of intelligence from Portugal. ' Ihe report of a battle hating taken plate between liie Allies and the French, ill which the latter was defeated, has been changed, since Saturday, iuio another, stating, that the English army had commenced its retreat to the coast, followed rapidly by that of ihe enemy. Paris papers are just come to hand, up to Fuday last. From Hitse it appearstbat King Louis was in Hanover 011 the 7th; On his way to his brother Jerome's dominions in W'est- i halia, aud that all tho foreign Ambassadors are recalled f oul Holland, by order of the French government. These papers also contain the copy of a summons t" the Governor of Ciudad Hodrigo, on the 29th of June, to sur- render that fortiess ; which produced the following- reply : ", Af er49 years service, 1 cannot but know the laws of war, a'd my military duties, The fortress of Ciudad Rodrigo is i. ot in a state to capitulate, nor is there liny breach formed in it. that might compel it to do so. 1 cannot, therefore, do otherwise, than desire your Excellency to continue your operations against the place.

A circular letter has lately been transmitted by the Bishop of Hereford to tlie clergy of his diocese, requiring from them a particular account of the '" tare of religion within their Parochial sphere, and comprehending principally tlw follow, iitg subjects respecting which a distinct answer is to be given to certain queries':— How, aiiit IniW often, the services of the church are ) e' forinedi, especially on the Lord's day ? Whether the incumber, t. resides in his parish, oi- leaves it to the care of a curate ? — 1' he reason of such n ui- irsideilce ?—. ' The annual nine ad of the curate ?•— What are the seasons fT catechising the children ?-~ What number <> f dis-' enting places cf worship there 1 are in the parish ; and of what particular denomination i— together with several other ques- tions of equal importance, all tending t, » inculcate diligence^ j in the el- rev, and the best interests uf tile ecclesiastical establi hment. Miss Long, the wealthy daughter of Lady Cath Lung, is } said to have turned a deaf ear to all the courtly addresses of j onr young tirst - nite nobles and to have listened tn those of a gentleman of respectability in the ba nking tine, whose firm will not be le « s securely founded bv the addition of half a million in specie, and 25.000/. per aim. ill landed property!

' Two considerations heie present themselves ; whether these Cottages are to be for the use of the poor without. paving any rent; or, to be rented by the inhabitants on as low terms as possible? 1 should incline to the latter ; until it shall become a national concern ; nod thou to be, ( as I said before) gra tnilously bestowed on industrious men ; and also men of valour. Now supposing the occupants of them to pay £ 3. thrn tbe other 40s. may be given by Ihe Magistrates from the turnpike toll produce: and thus every person who may choose to ad- vance 20/. towards this subscription might receive annually a bill value U. which is full legal interest, or 5 percent. No less subscriptions than 20/. should be entered in ihe name of any one person as a share, that there may be as li'tle trouble as possible given to the Committee ; whose Secretary, by their order, would remit Ihe proper sum due to ev ry share- holder as interest; not precluding any individual from having 25 shares who may choose to advance 500/. „ n such specu- lation, but rather wishing none to exceed five shares.

' This, Mr. Editor, appears to me ii reasonable nnd just pre- ference; because, as those funds ale collected grtatly to bene- fit the poor, of course they ought not to suffer; and, as these cottages are designed to benefit the poor, it seems probable that the different Benefit Clubs would not hesitate many days about placing out their money in the hands of twelve respect- able Gentlemen having so ne degiee of collateral security on tin: hoiiour of the Magistrates iu their several districts. How- ever, it is possible that many of the occupants can give 51. instead of 31. ; and iu all such cases, there would be no claim 011 the turnpike tolls. 1 presume that all this cannot be duly accomplished with- , out an Art ef Parliament; but. surely the expense of 500/. for such a p'drposc would not be murmured at by such a county people as the Salopians, ' The first object is to establish the O> ttage- C. omn. ittee ; the next, to seek for the requisite subscriptions; and then, at the next Meeting of Pailiaineut, to he prepared with a Bill foi the sanction of lhat august assembly ; not doubting of the ready concurrence of all our County and Borough Members, to give it their support ; and almost as Tittle doubting tile appro- bation of the whole Senate : because the intelligent Members of that House would perceive iilit the laire » t prospect ol much ultimate good.

This expression is lilend ; » nd goes to an ordinary faW, To the Editor of the Salopian Journal. SIB, " the perusal of my letter, in print, dated June 1th, and signed. Investigator, has served to recall my attention to the mhject of it; though, from causes of private concern, I bad not comrritted another thought to paper, respecting such matters, from Ihe hour, when that was sent to you, imme- diately alter perusing the extracts from Mr. Wytm, until the present, moment.— From s'ui- h neglect, perhaps I may Iufi'er the loss of some ideas then present to my mind ; liOw- $ jtr, 1 shall strive io re collect my scattered thoughts. In the fcrmer letter there are snme statements which I do r. rt think Mr. Wynn will be able to nfutc ; though I perceive that he possesses some logical subtlety, by the manner in whir b he brings cut his own arguments. Still 1 think that his doctrine. orViiph notions about Parliamentary Privileges, or rather the privileges of a Chamber of Parliament, cannot be maintained bv pricedtnts-. and I hope that the futility of his reasoning 011 that point has been made appaient to those who read the letter in . your Journal of June 20th, a letter wherein 1 peiceive iwo or three eirors, which are corrected by the lines annexed to this. Now, until I base investigated the subject more minutely, . arid obtalued more accurate ' information, I am neither dis- posed to deny, nor yet absolutely io admit, that PARLIAMENT ( in the sense al that word repeatedly used by Mr. Wynn) is superior to, what he calif, " inferior Court* of Judicatuie." In the Strict and proper sense of that word, as implying the miited aggregate, or threefold . principles and powers of the constitution, there Would be much less cause for hesitation about tbe comparative degree of authority; but, used in the loese and indefinite serte of signifying only a part of Parlia- ment, tlieie is fair ground to question ) he claim of privileges which that part either does or may assume under the denomi- nation which does not belong to it.— 1 cannot call to mind auv cases where either ot ihe three blanches have been duly ai. thoiised tu bring any of the people to trial, for matters touching life; anil, having jouYicled Ihe accused by credible evidence, have proceeded to pass sentence of death, and have carried that sentence into execution, without concurrence fiom the other branches.— King Charles was tried, convicted, and executed by " the H; gb Court of Justice" ( as it was called) but the King denied t|) e authority of such Court, ( and I think justly denied it). foi he, said, | hat " it wanted the upper " House, which was requisite to constitute a just tribunal." Whether Parliament had then a law in existence for tbe im- peachment of the King, and to biing him to trial, not being minutely conversant with the laws of uiy country, I cannot assert, nor deny : but common sense enables me to judge, and r ardour and a love of public justice impel me to declare, that ro txre of tbe three blanches can have a right to impeach end destroy the third, without express addresses from the majority of the people, to adopt such a course of proceeding, or at h ast without a solemn appeal from tho § e two branches to the nation at huge, requesting eithei their avowed sentiments or passive acquiescence with the measuie then in contempla- tion by those two. r A single case of assumed power, occurring in a time ot public commotion, cannot be valid as a precedent. Even in cafes vheie u, en are accused of high treason an impeachment takes place for trial before their 1' eer. s or equals : witness the case of Shafiord, iu the reign of Charles the first; and other eases since then ; as the rebellious lot. LIS in the reign of Geo. I. ( lieruentwuter, Eei. muir, & c.) and again 111 the reign of George the second, ( Kilmarnock, Bafrpetino, & c )— Others of the lebfls, among the Commoners, were tried befoie Com- missioners in tbe < curt of Common fleas, convicted, and rondtnined, and several executed; at London, Preston and Manchester; and again, on Keuiiiiigton Common, at Carlisle, and at York, afier the rebellion in l'T45.— In all these cases, tlieic was observance of the great lule of equity, trial by jury ; military executions exccpti d. Mr. V. Jim says, that " the House of Commons, as a •< Chamber of Parliament, has Hie light of committing to • 1 custody, for high treason or misdemeanour, which it may " think fit to investigate." Hut Mr. Wynn has nut gone so far as to assert, that tliey would think tit to comUvin and exacute the persons uhnsu liberty they mr. y think fit to suspend, and to investigate their delinquency. New, what he calls " tbe inferior tribunals," when. sanction- ed by the verdict of a jury, would proceed even to pass sentence of death : therefore these superior Courts cannot do what the inferior can do. Let Mr. Wynn duly corsider this. It is on this pnnnplk that I rather incline to question their absolute superiority, when acting singly, because the judge and jury, after trial and e* idencr, ci n convict and dc prive of / j/ e. I do not perceive that Commons, Loids, or King, can do this, without trial by jury. 1 theiefoie cannot discover that ifegrudution which Mr. ' Wynn and other privilege gentlemen talk of, if the person accused of ofiending the House, hj an act done OUT of the House of Parliament, be fairly brought to trial before an impartial jury. The House of Commons, or tlie House of Lords, cannot rea- sonably lie supposed impartial men, in cases touching matters of piivilege and self- importance: and, it implies, on theii part, a strong doubt of Ihe reasonableness of their claims, to be dubious or fearful of referring their cause to tbe in- vestigation of impartial juivmen.^ Tlie plea ursteel by Mr. W. respecting the House of Commons becoming " Prosecutors only for offences against their privileges," appears too weak to be urged by any man of sense who has A GOOD CAUSE whereon to employ- the strength of hi? faculties. 1 do not impeach the talents of Mr. \ V. but the cause in which they are employed. He argues for precedent to justify power. I contend for equity of principle. To shew the weakness of his argument, I must quote his words—" In case nf a libel which tends to degrade the House " of Commons, and to exalt the prerogative of the. King, 11 ( possibly during a contest on that verv subject) what security can they possess, that the KiNG's- ei/ j? cer wi'- l tluly " execute their directions ? The Attorney General MAY be biassed against them, by his own sincere opinion ; or he MAY corruptly betray their cause."— Taking Ihis position or hypothesis of Mr. Wynn as the basis for throwing out an insinuation against a King's judgment, or the integrity of an Attorney General, I admit it possible that a King may err in his choice : be may intend to nominate an intelligent, upright man, but unfortunately fix upon a bigot or a knave, to fill such public office. But, in this hypothesis, there is quite as much aaainst the principle of his own reasoning as for it; for the Attorney- General MAY be biassed for the House of Commons; or, he MAY corruptly violate the rights of the people. However, honest and impartial men will admit that the inference, cr rational deduction, which should follow from Mr. Wvnn's own view of such a case, must be this, that as the King's Attorney may be biassed against them, the House of Commons ought to bave AN ATTORNEY of THEIR OWN who, in all probability, would be biassed for them ; at least by self interest, if not by sincere opinion ; and who, therefore, would not corruptly betray them, at the hazard of losing his place. This would not be piobable ever to happen ; because, as tbey are the purse- keepers of the national wealth, they ceitainly conltl give as good a salary as any other master, not even excepting the Lords, or tbe King. This plea I hope is thus quietly put to rest; and if Mr. Wynn be really anxious to promote the dignity of the House of Commons, it would certainly be taking a useful step towards the attainment of that object, if he would propose a bill to abolish the office nf Attorney- General, and to bave three I ATTORNIES- SVECIAL for the three Chambers of Parliament ; one for the King; one for the Peers; and one for the Commons.— If the present Attorney- General receive ,£ 3000 per annum,* let each of the Special gentlemen receive, two.' Thus the additional expense would only be <£ 3000.— If the House of Commons be really what they are said to be, and what they certainly ought to be, the representatives of the people, not tbe nominees of individuals, then they ueed not. fe- ar any undue bias against them, by being 11 merely pro- secutors." Their own Attorney would act with fidelity, and if we are to suppose the minds of jurymen influenced with any bias, it would rather be in their favour than against them, I will venture to say, what I certainly believe, that the generality of men acting 011 their oatlis, would regard truth and justice as much as myself; and if the conduct of the House of Commons wete pure and upright, they ' 1 could not be " lowered, for much time, iu public estimation; tliev could " not be vilified by a course of systematic, libels," for they would prosecute the libellers, and the jury would convict them of such transgression. But the most likely method to make them sink in the public esteem, is to assume to them- selves the privilege of being accusers, judges, and punishers. Equally futile do Mr. Wynn's hypotheses appear, where he speaks of what the Lords, the Commons, or the whole Legislature, MAY possibly practise, with respect to notorious offenders, innocent persons, aud matters of public trust, shall here use Mr. Wvnn's own words, against himself, because they are so applicable. Speakintr of what he calls " the trite argument drawn from the possibility of abuse of " power," he says, " it is an argument which would be of " equal validity to disprove the expediency of any other " possible power entrusted to any human authority." Only eight lilies follow these words before Mr. Wynn advances with his MAY be- au arguments, or possible con- tingencies ; " The Lords may give false judgment, & c. The " Commons may produce vexation to innocence, &. C. and the " whole Legislature may grossly abuse all the powers, with " which it is entrusted for the public benefit."— I should have expected better logic from Mr. Wynn. He should not have thrown himself thus open to the strokes of an adversary It would have been wiser to have said nothing, than to have said this. When the Legislature of any country have attained the degree of proficiency that Mr. W. thus mentions, it is then high time for the people to withdraw their confidence, and to resume that power which originally belonged to them, and was never absolutely surrendered, but transferred to a few to be exercised for the good of the whole. \ Vhen the ends of Ihe trust are so grossly violated, the obligation to confidence must cease ori one side, occasioned by the perfidy of the other. The necessity for summary process, so much contended for by the supporters of privilege, is a fallacious plea : it may be equally obtained by the plan of jury- trial. If there be special occasion for summary punishment, let there be a special cow t assembled within forty- eight hours, or any time of reasonable dispatch. Thus, in every view, the high notions of privilege, supported merely by precedents, are not proper for exercise in tlie Senate of a free and enlightened people : and 1 venture to declare and to predict, that there is so much general knowledge and good sense in this country, that the people will perceive tbe danger to public liberty of suffering men tn usurp more power than they ought to possess; and eventually, ihe rights of the people shall be so well ascertained, and their duties so clearly unelerstood, that no gentlemen shall have privilege to trample 011 those lights, nor to plead either precedent or necessity for the exercise of such infringement. Until some person call 011 me, by medium of your Journal, for a real signature, I do not perceive absolute occasion for it. Any one doing so, with his real name, shall have mine, in a future number of your Journal. I now say adieu to Mr. W. aud subscribe once more, respectfully, INVESTIGATOR.

On Tuesday, at five minutes before two o'clock, this noble ship was launched from the King's Yard, at Deptford. The elay being olerably fine, a most im- mense concourse of people had assembled at Deptford and the opposite shore, early, in the morning, and by one o'clock the roads were almost impassable. The ships in the river were all crowded, even to their top- gallant- mast- heads ;| tops, yards, cross trees, shrowds,— in short, every place where people could stand or cling to, were completely crammed. Boats of all descriptions were rowing to and fro, on the river, filled with those whtrcame to see this most gratifying spectacle to the heart of every Briton, ivho - wishes well lo his country, from the proud state barge to the humble and dirty coal lighter. Many of the latter commodious vessels were fitted up in a most superb manner, with deal planks and tattered tarpaulins, for the reception of those ladies and gentlemen who chose to pay a shilling for a place; anil, as a farther inducement so to do, several of them had chalked on their sides, in comely characters, and elegant spelling, " good porter, and bread and cheese." The diversity of the scene, and more particularly the assemblage of beauty which was displayed around, and which we boldly challenge the world to rival, were enough to fix the attention of any man, upon any other occasion, but here all eyes were turned to the ship herself: and there indeed was a sight, sufficient to rivet the attention of any thinking being— that, so immense a body could be erected by the ingenuity of mau, and so composed of an incredible number of small pieces of limber, so strongly and in- timately combined together as to resist the utmost fury of the storm— the force of the most tremendous waves, chafed by the sweeping of the wintry winds, was a subject of astonishment. She was crowded on the upper deck, and the cabins were full of elegant com- pany ; she was decorated with the flags usual on such occasions, the St. George's Ensign waving proudly over her stern, ller pons were all hauled up as square as if done by a mathematical instrument; in short, her whole appearance was noble aed gratifying. She is the largest vessel ever built in the River Thames, her dimensions beitt<: as follow :— ft. 190 m 156 51 52 53 22 53 6 63 113 3 123 3 61 102 1 75 3 23 24 4 0 2 0 0 0 11 4 4 n 10 Length 011 the range of the Lower Gun deck from the Rabbit, ot the Stem to the Rabbit of the Stern- Length from ' the Aft part cf the Fife . rail to the Fore part of the Figure . head — Length of the Keel for tonnage — Breadth Moulded — — — Breadth Extreme — — — Breadth to the outside of ihe Main Wales — Depth in the Hold — — — Perpendicular Height, from tlie under side of the False Keel, to the upper part of tbe Figure- head Perpendicular Height, from the under side of the False Keel, to the upper part of the Taff- rail Length of the Foremast — — Diameter — — — — Length of the Mainmast — — Diameter — — — — Lencth of Ihe Maintopm'ast — —.

In the Dock- yard, a couple of sheds were erected on each side of the ship, extending from her cut- water to the river side. These sheds were erected for the accommodation of the ladies; and were decorated with flags and ensigns. The ships in the river were also adorned with the ensigns of the various nations to which they belonged. " God save the King," and " Rule Britannia," were played by two bands, one in in the Yard, and another in a Barge ; and were hailed with enthusiasm by the surrounding multitude. At length, after waiting with no small degree of impatience, without any previous warning, the ship went oil'; but to describe her smouth and gliding progress into the River, were impossible; for 110 person can conceive the appearance of so immense- a body, when in motion, unless he had himself been a spectator of the scene. In the most even and gentle manner she glided along until she plunged into the bosom of the stream, which rose 011 each side of the vessel as if Father Thames was embracing his favourite with joy, and hailing her as Ihe future Sovereign of the Ocean.— The tide setting upwards, she ran with considerable velocity up the stream, to the great danger of an immense number of small boats, which had incautiously approached too near; and tor some minutes those spectators who were out of danger were under great apprehension that many of them would be swamped, but they spread 011 each side with amazing rapidity, and we understand 110 accident whatever happened— a circumstance which any spectator would have thought next to impossible, considering the compact phalanx into which the boats were formed. The following passage in the Yearly Epistle of the Society of Friends, deserves the serious attention of all descriptions of men, as well as Quakers :— " Now, dear Friends, we would mention one subject, which at this time has been under out notice ; a caution to all, to use moderation in their manner of living ; and in this way to seek relief from the increasing expenses of the times in which we lltoe, rather than by engaging in more extensive, and hazardous schemes in trade." A feVv flays ago, a woman, 74 years old, hung herself \ vith several pieces of pack- thread twisted together by herself, aided by part of a bed- cord; in her house, at Neston, in the county of Chester.— What is very sin- gular, is, that she desired her niece never to omit bringing Iter every piece of cord she could find, as she would stand in need of it some time— tho ueed was therefore explained as above. DIED. On Sunday se'hni'gbt, James Serle, Esq. of Bishopstoke, many years Receiver- general of Hampshire, and Steward to the Lord Bishop of Winchester. It is saitl his death was I occasioned by ihe cutting of a corn too close, which produced a mollification. He was much respected by all who had the; pleasuic of his acquaintance. At Paisley, mi the 3d instant, Mr. Hugh Simm, aged 73 vcais. lie was a native that town j and; though breel a mechanic, at an early period of life discovered so strong an inclination after liteierv pursuits, that, without the assistance of a teacher, he made considerable proficiency in the study of the Latin language, & c. The discovery of this invincible piopensity to literature, as well as aptnessio learn, joined to a religious turn of mind, induced the late celebrated Dr. Witfici'spiidu, ^ benbe lejt Paisley, to take him u. lyug with him to America, where, in I'linceiowu College, New Jersey { wet which the. ! sawed. DoctHr- pj: s$ id< sJ),.. besides . devoting his attention to the- study of Ihe learned languages and oiheij branches of - science, he became a sthdetit of divinity. The! unfortunate levohiiiunavy war, howt- jet, soon breaking out, bis liteiary pregress was unavoidably- iulei'inpteil, and his connexion with - his patron broke off, as their political setiti- i nients respecting A- uierican independence happened tu be exii. eniely opposite. Dr. Witfyeispoon, as is well known, at an early period of the contest, bccainc a member of ' Con- gress, ami by his writings, speeches, ai. d other active exer- tions, contributed in no small degree toward Ihe separation yf the colonies from the mother country ; while Mr. Siitim, iu his humble sphere, became wannly devuteti to the Royal cause. vi• vu'-' tiKir vrf hud * d ...-„-< i Cruelty.— Richard Barrow, who was a surgeon of Hounslow, a short time since was tried and found guilty iu the Court of King's Bench of the most horrid cruelties tu Samuel Strange, a child of eight years old. From the affida- vits read to the Court, it appeared that Barrow bad taken a Child into his house, with the intention of adopting him, and allowing him to go by his own name. He, however, gradually treated him with severity, and on the 27th uf July 1809, committed the particular acts of atrocious cruelty of which he bail been found guilty. For some boyish trick, of setting fire to a few sticks, Barrow dragged the child into tbe kitchen ; alter tying his legs, flogged hiiii severely with a horsenhip, forced a red- hot iron intu Ins hand till he vvas burned, put him ill a cupboard filled with straw, brought fire, and threateneilio burn him alive, fired pistols close to his head, foieed him to swallow tobacco and other sickening substances till he vomited, and after this discipline, put him into tbe coal- ho'e, with his legs tied, and bis stripes smarting upon him, 24 hours, wiih no other sustenance than bread and water.— One of the affidavits stated, that earlier in the year, on a remarkable frosty morning, Barrotv., for some slight offence, had stripped Strange naked, put him into a large watering trough in the yard, and pumped on him till he grew perfectly insensible. 7' he Attorney General, in praying judgment, observed, with great effect, 011 the unpitymg invention which this man had exhibited in his experiments on human suffering. He concluded by hoping, that while the passing lit of huma- nity, which adopted this little victim, was not to be. overlooked by the Court, yet its sentence would teacb masters, and all others who have the power of good and evil to their species, tjiat the laws uf the land were sleepless in securing the de- pendent and tbe child equally from the exercise ot ai bltvart severity.— Lord ELLENBOROUBH felt tbe case to be of a dark dye; but the fust anxiety of the Court must lie for the present state of the child's health. ( It was answered by the Attorney General, that the child was recovered after a surgeon's at- tendance 011 him in the workhouse for a mouth.) If so, the object must be his future provision; and it might be left to the Counsel e> n both sides, to settle tile income to be allowed to that injured boy, for a definite number of years. If 110 such settlement could be agreed 011, the law must take its course, and if its band fell ht all, it must tall heavily." Auctioneer.— Ao action iyS3 brought in the Court of Common Pleas on Tuesday, by Mr. Biuwti against Sir G. Robinson, Bart, to recover centage for selling an estate of the Defendant's. It appeared, that the Plaintiff was em- ployed by a Mr. Cole, the steward uf the'Defendant, to sell ail estate for lnm in Bedfordshire, by auctitjn ; which, for want of bidders, he was unable to do ; but afterwards Sold it, with the consent of the Defendant, to a Mr. Robinson, foi 1 1,000 guineas, by private sale ; he now sought to recover 1J per cant. 011 that sum, being what was usually allowed to auctioneers. It was the rate that Skinner and Dyke, in London, always charged. ID defence it was contended, that although the Plaintiff had been, in Hie first instance, feui ployed to sell the estate by auction, yet, when it « » > Sold by private sale, be was the agent of the buyer, and ought to bV remunerated by bim. A bill was also put in, wheie tne Plaintiff only made a charge of bit. Ik ; anil 20/. had hCen • paid into Court by the Plaintiff. The Jury gave a verdict for the Plaintiff 115/-. b- mg 01 e per cent, on the puichase h. Ouey ' faddy v. liose, falsely calling herself TaJdy-— IN THE COURT oy AUciies— 1' nis was a suit of u'uiTtty O. m& iiiage, promoted by the husband, by reason ol tniuuruy : which was brought by letters of request from the Consistoria' Court of Norwich. The parties were married on the 16th of January, 1810, by licence, at St. Peter's Cheuch, in that city, without the consent of his mother, whose husband died without appointing any. guardian to liis son.— Sir J. Nicholl, after hearing Ihe arguments on both sides, said, it was an extremely bard case, and very injurious to the young woman, who was only 17 years of age at the time of iier. marriage, which was consented to 011 the part of her parents; but, notwithstanding, he vvas bound bylaw to pronounce for the sentence, and accordingly pronounced the marriage to be null and void. Pring v. Currey.— This suit was originally instituted in the Consistoria! Court of Batn and Wells, by julin Carrey against a Mr. Pring, for smiting Thomas Currey, the brother of the promoter, and also fur quarrelling or chiding in tbe church of Norton Fitzwarrow, on the sabbath, the 28th of. November, 1809, there being between 40 aud 50 persons assembled for the purpose of bearing divine service. Thomas Currey seated him- elf in a pew belonging to two other pa- rishioners, who endeavoured to turn him out, in consequence of which a scuffle ensued, when Mr. Pring, tbe then church- warden, used very foul words, and added, " We will have no fighting here, if you want to fight go into the church- yard ;" which place, by the statute of the 5th and 6th of Edivard V. was as much prohibited from such a transaction ; anil persons so offending ( particularly the churchwarden) was liable to be suspended. The Learned Judge was clearly of opinion that tbe churchwarden's conduct was very improper.; but, under all circumstances,- he should dismiss the defendant, and con demn him in 40/. costs. Another instance of extreme cruelty.— At the late Surrey Sessions, Mary Boyce, a young woman of very decent appearance, was put to Ihe bar, charged with ejxtrcme cruelty towards her own child, a girl about six years of age.—- Sarah Brunton stated, that the prisoner formerly lodged in her house; she occupied the par- lour for seventeen months, and during that time, scarcely a day passed but she witnessed some act of cruelty on the purl of this unnatural parent towards her helpless child ; frequently she sent the infant to school in the morning without any thing to eat; and slill more frequently punished her ill a most barbarous manner, without any cause. One instance of the latter conduct, in particular, the witness stated : she was one day em- ployed 111 the kitchen under the parlour which the prisoner occupied, when she was alarmed by several violent blows on the floor above, the shock of which brought down part of ihe ceiling of the kitchen, and the last blow she thought was accompanied with a kind of smothered groan : upon hearing this, the witness ran up sti'. rs to the prisoner's apartment, and asked her " what she had been doing?" The prisoner said, " Nothing." But on looking at the child, the witness was shocked in the greatest degree; the child's fea- tures were distorted ; and ' her eyes nppeared swelled, and as if starting from her head. The witness, on per- ceiving this, again asked her, " what she had beCa doing?" when she said, " nothing, but lifting'hfff up by the neck;" shewing the witness in what manner, when the unfortunate infant again turned black in the face. The witness had frequently rescued the child from the prisoner's fury, and fed her when she thought she was starving.—- Mary Jhcchard stated, that the prisoner came to lodge at Tier house in November last, und remained till she was apprehended. During a se- vere frost in January list, the witness was disturbed early one morning before she was up, by a noise iu flit; yard; and looking out, she perceived the prisoner throwing the child into a cistern of water in the yard, and dragging her out again several times: each time she pulled her out, the little Victim's back was rubbed against the edge of the cistern, by which the flesh vvas torn and lacerated. She called out to the prisoner, who, upon hearing her, desisted : the witness soon after went into the prisoner's room, wbore she saw the child j there were marks of blood in different parts of the room, which she perceived proceeded from a large wound the child had received in her head, ai the wit- ness conjectured, against the edge of the cistern 1 the skin was also rubbed oil" its elbows, and both its tem- ples were very much bruised. She haii seen the prisoner, when the child was sewing, run the needle into its lingers a considerable way. She often remon- strated with the prisoner on her conduct, which she told her would assuredly terminate in her destruction, The Jury, without any hesitation, found her guilty: autl the Chairman, after expatiating 011 the enormity of the crime of which the prisoner had been convicted, passed sentence, That she should be imprisoned in the House of Correction for two years ; and on the expir- ation of that time, enter into a recognizance for her good behaviour for two years, herself in i' 100. and two sureties in £ T> 0. each. Vaccination.— Mr. C11 exsrn, an eminent surgeon at Bath, has lately published iu the papers an Address " to the Gentlemen of the Gtoceslor Vaccine Association-," on this important subjects ; in which he says— " Twelve years experience has now unalterably fortified all the conclusions in ils favour which I first formed My personal Vaccinations have amounted to'more than :- 0( K); and I ha ve inspected and directed the Vaccination of more than that number. In the year 1805, after continued bxeiflolis, I succeeded ( principally by ihe active aid of ibat excellent aiid enlightened character, Mr. Hohhoiise, 11. P.) in forming n Society in this county, called The SOMERSET Jenneriiin Society far the Propagation of Jfuccinntwn ; whicti wa's supported by most of the leading characters in rank and property within it. Twenty- eight stations were appointed, Under the direction of medical gentlemen, for the gratuitous practice Of Vaccination. A few days since, the Venerable ind Rev. the Dean a fid Chapter of Hereford Cathedfil, were pleased lo P'eseht the Rev. James Garbett, M. A. one of the Vicars- Choral, to the Vicarage of Marden, in that diocese, void bj the death of the Rev Theft. Lloyd.— Also, the Rev. Christopher Jones, M. A. one of the Vticars- Choral, to the Vitarage of Yarkhill, vacant by the cession of the Rev. Mr. Garbett.— And, likewise, the Rev. Wm. Cooke, M. A. one of the Vicars- Choral, to the Perpetual Curacy of Brockhampt > n, void by the resignation of the Rev. Adam John Walker. Thirty- one shopkeepers, millers, meal- sellers, and butchers were lately convicted at Leeds, cf having false weights and balances, and paid the customary penalties and costs ; and iu VVakeReld upwards of thirty other persons, for similar offences, Were convicted and fined. Several publicans at Sheffield were fined £ b0 each, oa in formation before the Magistrates for using a drug, known by the came of Grains of Paradise, in brewing—- The penalty fell 30 heavily upon one as to require the sale of his effects to pay it.— We mention these convictions by way of caution. Charitable Bequests.— The late Thomas HSen* aw, fisq, of Oldham, in the county of Lancaster, has left by will the following princely sums for charitable purposes:-" For the endowment of a Blue Coat School at Oldham, or Manchester, if the exe- cutors think it moie convenient .£ 40,000 0 0 Pot a Blind Asylum at Manchftstet St', 000 0 i » To the ' Manchester Infirmary 1,000 0 \> To the Lunatic Hospital, Manchester 1,00( 1 0 0 To tne Lving- in Hospital, ditto.. £ 00 0 O To the Ladies' Charity, ditto SOO 0 0 Mr. lleiishiuy has also bequeathed various legacies to his distant relatives, and numerous friends, upwards of fifty of whom are remembered in his will, which bears date in November 1807, to which are added several codicils, all dated in the vear 1S03. .4crrdenti— On the evening of Tfturstl ty last tiie roof of a barn which had recently been converted into a meeting- house, at Home Bad, between Christ Church anil Poole, fell in, whilst serviere was performing. There were about ll) 0 persons present, ' four of whom Were- killed, anil several much hi it. llcmedy.—' Vhi: whooping- cough and small- pox are prevalent in Hertfordshire, particularly at St. Albau's, and its - neighbourhood.— A11 ointment, made of the essential oils of elder, carraway, au- 1 rosemary, with rose leaves and cainrnomile flowers, rubbed to th; pit of the stomach at bei- time, is said to bj an effectual remedy for the whooping- cough. An extraordinary circumstance occurred last week on a farm in the neighbourhood of Llanelly: a young girl, accompauied by her brother, driving some cows into the field from milking, was attacked by a bull, thrown down, aud trampled upon; the boy, anxious for his sister's safety, picked up a sharp stone, which he threw at the animal; and striking linn between the eyes, he fell dc'ad instantly, the stone being literally buried in the skull. A few days ago, Mr. Cooper's gamekeeper set ti. hook, baited with a roach, in the manor pond at Toddiiigton, Betlds: oti going tire next morning, he found a large pike caught, which with dignity he got out,—'- It appeared, that a pike of $ ib. weight was first caught, which was afterwards swallowed hi a fisll of the same description, weighing 18 lbs. and both were taken together. Complaisance is 110 longer confined to the polite cir- cles:— A captain of a collier was lately called out of a chop- house, at Wapping, by a waterman, with the fol- lowing address—" A'nt please your Honour, the tide ' is waiting for you." Mr. Meek's Bull.— The long- horned Bull, bred by- Mr, Meek, ' of - Oiinstall Hall, in Stiffords lire, which was intended to havfc been shewn against asho.' t- horned Herefordshire Bull, for 100 guineas a side, Ihe property' of Mr. Walker, of Burton, in Worcestershire, died on Saturday, from an inflammation of the lungs, with which he was seized oa the preceding day. - Mr. Meek's Bull, Symmetry, was. got by Washington, out ot a Shaks/ jeure Cow, and was seven years old 0: 1 toe 4tii of Juue last He was allowed by the best judges lo pos- sess the most beautiful form, finest quality of flesh, anil tiie greatest s ze, with the least oSM, of any Bull in tile kingdom. He was let out, the two last years, to Mr. Green, of Leicestershire, and did not return ho ne till the latter epd of last October, when he was very thin. Siace that time he had been in a state of preparation for the next Agricultural Meeting at Lichfield. He was shewn at Lic'hlltld several times, when he always igained the prize. When he was two years old, Mr. Meek refused 50() guineas for him.— We have beea fa- voured with- the following particulars as lo his weight r Fore Quarters. .

It'is to these facts, ( on which experience enables uie to speak,) that 1 wish principally to call your nttenlinii, us I conceive that they are directly relevant to the main object of vour association. By the Reports which are 111 mv haft ® , it is proved, fiom the concurring testimony of the medical agents, that ibe insuperable obstacle which presented itself to the be- nevolent efforts of the Vaccinators, was a touted preference evinced bv uumbeis for Small Pox Inoculation, and which vvas supported by the extreme facility with which they were able to avail themselves of this cherished plague, not only by the hands of some of the faculty, but by blacksmiths, coblcrs, female mid'wives, and empirics of every description. A few of our medical agents pledgeil themselves tint to practise Variolous Inoculation ; but many expressed their inability to resist individually tbe force of vulgar opinion; and we foutid, that, without unanimity of concurrence, the disinterested views of the Vaccinators would tend only to afford a source of emolument to their less scrupulous brethren.

It is tny own opinion, as well as lhat of some eminent pol. tieal ceconomists, that a mild and judicious coercive regulation bv law would best answer this important purpose. In tlie aid, or the defect of this sa- lutary legislation, associations similar to that which so much to your honour is formed in tbe county of Glocest r, iiiiist powet fully contribute to stamp the practice of Variolous In- oculation with disgrace, and to facilitate its expulsion. We must either institute some means of arresting 3 practice, of whose enormous mischiefs we have such ample proofs, or be contented to wait till the whole public have becnttie convinc- ed of the benefits of Vaccination ; which desirable Change of opinion, the easy adoption of Variolous Irioculation is directly Calculated to postpone. In respect to the permanent security induced by perfect Vaccination, I am iri possession of evidence derived from an early period of its practice, which goes far to settle the recent and hypothetical objections alleged against its durability. This, to ynu, gentlemen, would be superfluous 1 but I shall deem it a duty to piesfint them to the public in another mode. Indeed, 1 think the world have a claim on the early advocates of Vaccination for the results of their matuie experience."
