DOWN1NG- STREET, JULY 51. Extract of a dispatch fro n Lord Wellington to the Earl of Liverpool, dated Alverca, 1 Ith of July. The enemy passed the Amibra in force on the morning of the 4th instant, and obliged Brig. Gen. Craufurd to f3ll back wilh his advanced guard to the neighbourhood of the Fort of La Conception, which had been occupied bv a part of the 3d division of infantry. In making this movement, Captain Krauckenburg and Count Cordetrish, al the head of a small body of the I st hussars, distinguished themselves by miking a gallant charge upon a superior body ofthe enemy. Upon mentioning the 1st hussars it is but justice to inform your lordslrio, that they have been with the advanced gii3id throughout the winter, aud have performed their duty in the most satisfactory manner. The 3d battalion of Portugues; chasseurs, under Lieut. Col Elder, also she. red their steadi- ness timing this movement, and the skirmishing of the enemy which attended it. The 1st hussars had five men aud tine'; horses wounded, and tbe 16lli light dragoons three horses killed. Ah- rra, Wh Julii. Since I wrote to your lordship this day 1 have received a report that Ciudul Rodrigo surrendered to the enemy yester- day evening. There was a large practicable breach in the the place, and the enemv had made preparations for a storm; when Marshal Ney having offered terms of capitulation, tin; garrison surrendered. The enemv took up their ground be- | fore this place oil the 26th of April ; invested it cotripletidy I on the 11th of June, and opened their fire lh> 24th of June ; and adverting to the nature and position of the place, to fhe | deficiency and defects of its works, to the advantages which the enemy had in their attack upon it, and the numbers mid formidable equipment by which it was attacked, I consider the defence of Ciud id Rod. ig i to have been most honourable to the Governor, Don Andieas Hervasti, arid its gttrris in ; anil to have been equally creditable to the arms of Spain with the celebra'ed defence of other places, by which this nation has been illustrated during the existing Co nest for its inde- pendence. There was an affair between our piquets and those of the enemy this morning, in which the enemy lost two officers and 31 men, and 29 horses prisoners. We have had the misfortune to lose Lieutenant- Col. Talbot, and eight men ofthe 14th light dragoons killed, and 23 men wounded. of FARMS as uuder: Quantities. A. 11. P.

By a Gentleman who left Rotterdam ou Tues lay, we have some interesting details of the situation of the new territories of France; North of the Maese.— Besides the Royal Guard of Louis, all the Dutch troops in Rotterdam, Haerlem, Utrecht, and some other places, had been marched into France on their way to Spain. Their numbers might he estimated at betwee. i 12 and 15,000. About SOCIO Officers of Police were to be ap- pointed; with special powers and authority, at any time, to enter the dwellings, warehouses, or other buildings of the natives, for the seizure of all property sttspecled lo have come from this country. Temporary regu- lations were in progress to prevent any of the inhabitants from quitting the city without giving previous notice of the objcct aud direction of their journey. This outraged people submitted with" the greatest patience to the annexation of their country to France-. The discipline of the French soldiers in Amsterdam, whose force had been increased hy a part of the di- vision of Morand of 3500 men; was very strict, and the troops in general behaved in an orderly mauner. Freti'- Ji Officers had been nominated by the new St idtholder to the most distinguished situations in the Government Lieut. Leach, ofthe Cracker, Ins made another ( the third) seizure, of gold, to a large amount, in bars aad coin ; which has beea conveyed'to the Custom- house. The St. Albau's, which convoyed the tle" t from China, it is stated, has ou board dollars, consigned to the East IndiaCompauy, to the amount of 100,000?. and upwards. The China fleet have been about live mouths from Canton; touched at t'onang, where they left the Cuff- nells repairing ; and at St. Helena, which they had left seven weeks, when they were fallen in with, oil" the Western Isles, by the Revenge, of 74 guns, aud iris frigate. They have had a fine passage of a fortnight since. By letters from Canton, dated in the early part of January, we hear that intelligeuce had been received at that fartory of the arrival, at Manilla, on the 4th of November, 1S09; of the French corvette La Mouciis. That vessel had been equipped hy the Governor of the Mauritius to carry Commissioners, who were to offer to the inhabitants of those islands the blessings of Bonaparte's Government. These gentlemen Here, however, disappointed iu their expectations) they were seized aud thrown into prison; the vessel was confiscated, antl fitted out again by the merchants oi" Manilla, to carry to Acipnlco, in Mexico, the docu- ments found on those Missionaries of sedition. The report of the safety of the True Briton Indiaman was revived yesterday. A Gentleman, who arrived as passenger in the China fleet, writes to his friend, ( hat he learnt at St. Helena that the Captain of t'lat India- man had communicated to the Governor at Bombay, his arrival in distress at Cochin. One of the first houses in town, concerned in India commerce, has received similar accounts. i We have received the following interesting letter | from Deal, dated the 29th tilt. Th;: conduct of Captain | Whiters aud his crew, deserves the highest commen- dation :—• I " About half- past ten last n'tght, as the Ranger, a whaler, Captain Whiters, was coming round the North Foreland' on tier way to the Downs, she was hailed by a Urge | u* » er, and a- ked if she wanted a pilot. Captain Winters suspec'LIIE; she was a French privateer, desired her to keep oil'; but sba ran along- side; and boarded with about 20 men. The crew of the whaler, thus taken by surprise, h. irl no time for prepar- ation. but flew to the handspikes; which lay forward ; by this time the Frenchman had got complete possession of the quarter- deck. Captain White ' s, who had but one atm, with his hiave creiv ( only 16 in number), engigeri the Frenchmen, and literally beat out their brains, or drove them overboard. Tne lugger again boarded with HS many mote; an I met with the same reception ; the whole being either killed or wounded, with the exception of foiir, now on board the wnater, prisoners • one Of them on Irishman ( a Lieutenant on board the lugger), one an American, aud the other two Frenchmen, a I having their skulls fractured, aud their faces in a allocking state. The lugger was not long out of Calais, had made no capture, pierced fur 18 g ins, but had only 14 on board, with 22 men stle sheered off', and as she was going off, the whaler fired at tret, and shot away one of her masts, but she escaped. Not one of the w haler's crow was lntrt, though fired at repeatedly i hy the lugger, as well as the boardeis. I was iViih a gentle- man who is just come on shore from the Ranger; he says th'! decks are covered with blood rind brains; he saw two French- men hove overboard, who died of their Woundi. She has sailed for the river." The question, whether the Rev. C. Shipley had a | right to appeal against hi; expulsion from All SouW College, Oxford, in J- ily, 1809, was heard ou Friday, | at Lambeth, before his Grace the Archbishop, as Visitor, I Sir W. Gran*, and Sir VV. Scott, being his An.- ssors, oal an exception taken against s ich right, as exercised byl the Warden and Officers of th « Ceillege ; when, al ter a I very learned argument by the Counsel on both sides, I the Visitor decided in favour of the right of appeal, I aud ordered the Warden and Officers to produce their I grounds for the expitljioa within a mouth. LONDON. THURSDAY, AUGUST 2. Ycs'eiday arrived a Gottcnburgh mail and German papers. We liave already stated, that the Diet of Sweden was, for- afetv, to assembly at Oreliro, a for- tified town in an island on the Hielmar Lake, at a considerable distance from Stockholm. "! lie Duke of Cumberland has so far recovered of his wounds, as to resume the use of his hat, and oc ' casionallv to take airings on fool. French papers and letters received down to the 24th >! t. dwell with uncommon complacency 011 tiie recep- tion which the young Duke of Berg, the late King of Holland's sou, and Bonaparte's nephew, experienced from his Imperial Majesty. Napoleon, it is said, took him in his arms, m which he held him for a consider- able time, lecturing him on the necessity of carefully avoiding his father's example, and of having constantly in view— first, the interests of the Emperor, then those of France; and lastly, those of the people whom he may more immediately be carilcd upon to govern. The accounts from Naples, given in tiicse papers, represent the preparations lor the invasion of Sicily as being now ready. The force destined for this ser- vice was?, all assembled at Scilla early in July. The attar A was intended to be made as soon as the last convoy, which was daily expected, should arrive.- The public mav expect in a few days to hear of the result of this attempt. The Ex- King of Holland is in Bohemia, where he intends to remain for some time. Extract of a letter from nil office!" on board a vessel off' Boulogne, dated 27th of July : " On Monday evening last, the Castilian and Ape1l. es sloops stood cloce in- shore tn view the troops on parade at Boulogne. The forts allowed them to appioach as near as they pleaded, but as soon ai they perceived the vessels in staYs, the whole coast, whiah is fined with guns, began to poor foith iheir thnndrr. Shells arid red- hot shot flew about them, but the Casfitian received no hurt, and escaped out of tbe reach of danger. The Apclles, unfortu- nate I v, had three men vvoufnded, one of whom is despaired of. The trmps on parade wore in three division's, tlie largest of which appeared to consist uf about 5( 100 effective men ; the other two were comparatively small. They were all dressed in blue, which made it the more difficult to ascertain thei mount Ye- telilac six large trim- boats, and one aimed biig, came found Cape Ciisnez. They kept close ill- shore, and entered the harbour of Boulogne in safety. We found i impossible to arrest their prcigress and bring them to action." Letters from Corunna, to the date of the 2: 6th ult. have been received, and from these, as well as others from Ihe head- quarters of the British army in Portu- gal, it is perfectly clear that no general action bad oc- curred on the 10th and i'Otli of that mouth, as reported. II has been slated that Tortosa and Tarragona were both of them invested by the enemy, on the authority of letters from Alicant received from a most icspet:- able quarter. It is found by others, direct from the latter port, thai the French had not yet arrived before those fortresses. Some letters from Sicily, of the I Oth of June, came FRIDAY, AUGUST S. A Goltenburgh Mail arm ed this morning, from which it appears lhat the late Crown Prince of Sweden has been at length interred with much funeral pomp. Respecting the enquiry into the cause of his death, no further informal on has been received. The Court, of Stockholm seems entirely under Ihe in- fluence of France. An order to prohibit tho wearing of all insignia of hoirfcur appertaining to the old Regime has been renewed. A letter from Yarmouth states, lhat the cupture of part of the Baltic fleet is supposed to have been efiVct- cd by treachery ; the master of a neutral vessel having conveyed the intelligence to the Danes at Christianstadt, who immediately put to sea with a number of armed vessels, and captured the advanced pait of our fleet. A Mail from Jamaica arrived this morning. Some accounts are said to have been received thro' this chan- nel, which slate that some further advantages have been obtained by Christophe in St. Domingo, over Petion, who has in consequence been reduced to great Extremity ; but no particulars are given:— indeed little final redaction of the Island of St. Maura; in which the squadron had 7 men killed, and 59 wounded, A Letter from Capt. Maxwell, of the Alceste frigate, mentioning tbe deduction of a battery in the Bay of Agaye, the capture of four ar::. ed feluccas, and the destruction of two more, by the boats of thai ship, A letter from Capt, Aysc. ough, of the Success frigate, giving an account of an attack by the boats of tbat ship, under Lieut. S'artorius, on sntr. e vessels on Castigleone beach. The boats struck on a sunken reef, and were swamped ; the am- munition was all wet The British officers and men swam on- shore with their cutlasses in their mouths, landed under a fire from cannon ami musquetry, and drove tbe enemy first from behind the rock, and next, from houses. They then spiked the guns on the beach, burnt two vessels, launched I their own boats again, aud returned on board, with only 2 I men killed and 2 drowned. Admiral Sir C. Cotton likewise capture, bv ships of bis squadron transmits reports of the of seven French privateers and armed vessels, carrying from 8 to IS guns each There is no fuither intelligence from Spain or Portu gal this morning. There are rumours of Massena having divided his force— of his having sent not only 25 000 men to - astel Branco, but of his having marched with dependence is to be placed on any of the accounts re- « the rest of his army to Salamanca and 2amora with the craved from that island. I view of entering Portugal through Gal'. icia, a low lo hand yesterday, Irom one of which Ihe following is an extract;— " In order to spare the effusion of blood, Murat has this day scut a fii'g of truce, to request ihnt Sir J. Stuart would deliver lip this Island quietly into his hands.— We have ju t heard that Mural, in reviewing his troops, on the oppos'te si le, narrowly escaped Iieing taken by one of our gun boats.— Hi- was obliged to take r- fnge in Reggio." Extract of a letter from Hamburgh :— " Tbe architect who erected the bui'ding of the Austrian Ambassador at Peris, in which the late fire occurred, has been put under arrest, until the result of the misfortune shall he ful y ascertained. The preservation of his Majesty the Emperor, on that o » casion, was most miraculous. lie must have perished, had lie not sat near Ilie door. We hear, by letters just received, that several persons who were scorched, have died, and lew uf those have recovered that were bruised and trampled upon, in consequence of the fall of the beam at the doot." Heligoland has lately been threatened with a hostile visit. This information was brought by the last packet, and dispatches were forwarded to Government on the — subject. Its possession secures us an easy communi- cation with the Continent, which is greatly beneficial to our trade, and consequently deemed highly injurious by the enemy, who have long projected its reduction ; and in order to effect it, wait till the absence of our cruizers will rendci success less doubtful. Their expectations, however, have, till now, been disappointed ; and as orders have been issued to collect a naval force round it, sufficient for its protection, no fears need he enter- tained for its safety. Business on the Stock Exchange at present is very- slack. ' I here are now scarcely any bargains made for time, as those who have refused to pay their deficien- cies- have given a death blow to all confidence with re- spect to gambling speculations in ( apel- courf. The latter part ol this statement will be lamented by no honourable mind. If the recent misfortunes in the city have the effect of purifying the air of gambling in trade, they will do good, alter all. The Impregnable was launched at Chatham, on Tuesday, in the presence of a great concourse of spectators. In consequence of her having remained in a finished slate since September, 1309, she had settled so hard oil the blocks, that there was considerable difficulty in making her move; and it was not till the last block was split out, that she went off', in a very fine, style. Sir Francis Burdett.— On Tuesday a very numerous meeting of the Electors of Westminster took p'ace at the Crown ami Anchor Tavern, to celebrate, by a public dinner, ilio Iteration of Sir 1'. Biudett. Upwards of £ 00 tat down in the large ri- om. and near 300 in two smaller rooms. About half- past five Sir Francis, accompanied by Major Cartwrigbt, Mr Clifford, Mr. Mallet, Cul. Wardle, & c. ice. entered the room, and was received with enthusiastic applause. After thee loth was lemoved, Mr. Wishari, the Chairman, gave the first toast—" The King, the Law, and tire People." The next toast was-* " Tbe Liberty of the Press— it is like tbe air we breathe ; if we have it not, we die ;" and then— u Privi- lege aud Preirrigative according to Law." After a long intro- ductory speech, Mr. W. proposed the health of their worthy Representative Sir F. Burdett.— This toast was received and drank with enthusi i. sm. Sir Francis then presented lwmself to the meeting, and, iu his usual easy, pleasing, and voluble manner, etui lied bis thanks Among inatiy other most ap- plauded observations, the eloquent Baronet declared that he would ra'her fall with his country, than be exalted ou its ruins; and, after ail veiling at considerable length, to the trial of Mr. Cobbutt, and tbe situation ot Iielaud, declaring that, iu his opinion, England, Scotland, and Ireland, musi stand or tall together, concluded with recommending unani- mity, and drinking ihe health - of tiie company. The next toast was—" Major Caitwright and the Friends o" Parlia- mentary Reform." Upon the health of Major Caitwiight being given, the Major addressed the meeting, declaring he was not lor the moderate reform of some of his friends, nor ever should be— he was . fur,. having the British Constitution icstorcd in all its purity. He couclud " Representation without Rotten Boroughs Foreigners— and Laws without Military Execution." Sir F. Burdett, Mr. Wish. nt, Colonel Wardle, and several other gentlemen retired a little after ten ; but from the pressure ot persons ge tting put of the loom, aud the great body of people assembled on the stairs, the Baronet was obliged to remain tor a considerable time in an adjoining apartment. In vaii: it was staled to tht | xjpulaefi without doors, that Si j Fiancis bad gone home by a private door. They clung lo his carriage, determined to wait at least until every person had departed. At length Sir Francis got into liis coach al tiie back- d or in Norfolk street, aud the liorses proceeded into the Strand, when all opposition became iuelli- ctoul, and the people mi- harnessed them. They drew liiin through the Strand, l'nll. Mull, St. James'a- sqitare, to his own house hi Piccadilly, They halted at Carleton House, for tlia purpose of giving three cheers, and were not forgetful of expressing their dis- pleasure as they passed I- urd t astleieagb's. — Many houses put up candles, but not in consequence of any compulsory exclamations lioin the attending populace.— The meeting although so numerously attended, displayed a complete j u iiism in Ihepaity. Mr. Wailhman, Aid. Goodbeheie, Mr. Sheriff Wood, Mr. Slourch, Mr. Brooks, ( the ci decant Score- ' ta'ty to ihe'Committee of Sir Francis, anil one of his most ,, s; iiou « uhd respectable- supporters), wetr all absent. • A private letter from Cagliarr, dated June 24, states, that oil the 10th Murat's naval force made an attempt to land troops on the coast of Sicily, but were repui- od w ith the loss of between 2 and 3000 men. Sir Charles Cotton's dispatches, how ever, make no mention of such an attempt. The force under Genera! Lacy, which marched from Algesiras about the end of June, to attack the French at Honda, has failed in its object, and fallen back upon Gibraltar. Some private letters from Cadiz, however, stale, that it has again advanced. The Spanish ship Algesiras, of 74 guns, arrived at Plymouth frotn Cadiz, has brought several Spanish families of distinction, who are come to reside in this country. She brings nothing new. The French bat- teries keep playing incessantly on our fortifications, but as yet they have made little or no impression. Fifty French prisoners were brought home in the Algesiras The President frigate, arrived at Plymouth from Rio de Janeiro, brings intelligence, that trade there labours under as much depression as ever ; and that both there and at Bahia the warehouses are crammed with unsale- able goods. Our shipping on that station, have suffered severely by sickness, occasioned by the heat of the climate. Mrs. De Courcy and one of her daughter's are come home ill. It is understood, by the last letters from Rio de Ja- neiro, that his Royal Highness the Prince Regent is so persuaded of the benefit which has arisen to his do- minions from the political and military assistance re- ceived from his Britannic Majesty's subjects in Portu- gal, that the King's Minister, Mr, Stuart, is to have a 1 vote ill the Regency ' of that kingdom', in all delibera- tions on subjects relating to the military or Financial Administration, and the British Admiral commanding in the Tagus, is, we understand, to have the supreme direction of the whole of the Portuguese Marine w ilhin the European territories of that Monarchy. We are informed of another instance of the liberality and munificence of the Prince Regent to the gallant officers of that squadron which has so long been his Royal Highness's protection iu the new world. Pre- vious to the President sailing,, besides presenting each of the officers with a considerable tract of land, abound- ing in homed cattle, timber, aud fruit, as a further ma- k of his Royal Highness's esteem fOr the individual offi- cers, lie presented each with a ring, on which was his own miniature, richly set in diamonds, with this motto, " I'alar e Lealdade," ( Valour and Fidelity.) We like- wise are i .' ormed that the President has brought home about nine pounds weight of diamonds, consigucd to his Excellency the Chevalier de Soza Continho. Some of them are of an extraordinary size and water, and valued in the Brazils at £ 15,000 each. She has also brought home a great quantity of gold, besides topazes, ame- thysts, & c. for our merchants. The following political changes, and new arrange- ments, have been reporled within these few days, viz. Mr. Robert Duudas, the son of Lord Melville, who is now President of the Board of Controul, and a Cabinet Minister, who has been iu the North for some time, lias been sent for express, in consequence of its having been arranged with Lord Melville, and Ministers, that he should go to India as Governor General, and Lord Minto to be recalled, Mr. Wm. Dundas to succccd Mr. Robert Dundas, as President of the Board of Conlroul. The Lords of Trade had recommended that Swedish ships should be permitted lo proceed unmolested, with colonial produce aud other commodities, from their own ports to the harbours of the southern and eastern provinces of the Baltic, and the Admiralty had issued orders accordingly. We understand, that an arrange- ment has now been made between Russia, Courland, Prussia, Pomerania, and Denmark, under which all Swedish ships conveying merchandize so privileged bv the English, aie to be refused admittance into the ports of those countries. Selling Guineas.— The Kmc v. 1) E YONGK.— In the Court of King's Bench, Aug. 3, the defendant was indicted for selling 50 guineas for more money than they were current fur by proclamation ; lo wit, for £\. 2s. fid. each Mr. Attorney General stated thai this was a very short and very ilear ease. It was not necessary for him to dwell oil the mischiefs occasioned by such conduct as was imputed to the defendant— tbe consequences were obvious to every one.— The pi ice of gold being of lute very high on the Continent, many prisons bad made it a practice tu export our current coin ; by reason of which the circulating medium of the country was much diminished, lo tbe gieat inconvenience of every body. The officers of the Mint had reason to suspect tbat the defendant was a dealer in this traffic; tiiey therefore sent two persons to hie bouse ; one of •* hum was to peisonate a Dutch supercargo, aud the other was to act as his inter- preter. The Solicitor of the Mint had furnished Goss, one of these persons, with Bank- notes to the amount ol 56/. to pay for the guineas to be purchased. They accordingly went ; and after some conversation, the defendant agreed to sell them 50 guineas at a premium of Is. ( id. each. Goss was tepre- sented as bound for Goitcnburgh, and pretended he cauie re commended by a Hamburgh Captain, whom the defendant said he knew very well, and had sold him 900 guineas at his last voyage. As soon as they' had finished their bargain, and j were coming away, the Officers of the Mint, w tin were ready at the door, entered, and took the defendant inlo custody.— By an Act- of Edward VI. to buy gold at more than its current price by Proclamation, was a forfeiture of the gold, and a twelvemonth's imprisoument. The facts of the case were ad- mitted by Mr. Marry att, for tire defendant; but he content', ed, tbat the Act only applied to tbe changing for money, and not for Bank- notes. This objection being on the record, the point of law was reserved, aud the delcadant found Guilty, subject lo tbis point ol law. eu I to tis inarch of 300 miles. They would thus, however, get in the rear of Lord Wellington's present position unless he chose to retreat with the British army.

LONDON, Monday Night, August 6, 1810, The Mutine sloop of war is arrived at Portsmouth from Buenos Ayres, from whence she sailed on the 9th of June. She brings dispatches for Government containing the important information that a change had been effected in the Government of that Colony, which is now placed on a similar footing with the " govern- ment at the Caraccas. The new order of things, which must prove highly Beneficial to the interests of the British nation, has happily been brought about without the loss of a single life. In consequence of these new proceedings, duties on ox hides were reduced about 19 per cent, and 12 per cent, on tallow ; most other articles have been proportionally reduced. The Governor of Monte Video was apprized of the proceedings at Buenos Ayres, but had taken no steps in consequence, ex- cept that uf issuing a Proclamation requesting the people to remain quiet, which was attended to. It was perfectly under- stood, however, that the example of Buenos Avres would be followed. We have seen letters to the 17th ult. from Cadiz, which state, that the people of Mexico had officially announced their intention to stand by the mother country under lawful autho- rity, and had also came to tbe important resolution of aiding her in her present struggle with twenty millions uf dollars, to be transmitted immediately. No further official accounts have been received from Lord Wellington. The Cork Mercantile Chronicle of the 30th ult. received this morning, contains the following article : Corli. Ja'y 30.—" The Cyprus arrived this morning trom N w York, with a cargo of flour, in 26 days ; tlie master of her, Capt. Howard, sla'es, tbat when he sailed, a cull of Congress had been determined on; aud tbat Ihe people ( tbe mercantile interest in particular) sere clamorous fir a ivat rcith prance. Bills, or placards, were posted up through llie city, calling on the Executive to adopt measures for avenging the injuries and insults that had been heaped upon them by the French, whom they emphatically style a nation of un- principled pirates and robbers. No doubt was entertained of a war being inevitable." The Princess Amelia continues much the same. The Queen of Prussia died on the 19t. li of last month, after a severe illness, which commenced ou the 30th of June, arising from an abscess in the lungs. Her Majesty was the daughter of the Duke of Meckleuburgh Strelitz, and was in the 35th yeor of her age. At Beilin a royal edict has been published suspending Commercial Intercourse with tlie United States. It diiects, that no vessel coming from any uf the Ports of those Provin- ces or having American proprietors shall be admitted into the Prussian harboius. The Commander in Chief has lately issued an order, that the whole of Ihe regular army throughout the different districts in ( England, shall undergo an immediate in- spection, in order to ascertain tbe number of men fit for foreign service ; in consequence of which the whole of tbe Foot Guards now in town were inspected yesterday forenoon, by their respective doctors. The Reply of General Sarrazin to the Narrative made by Gen. Clarke, Minister of War to Gen. Bona- parte, has been published. It is dated London, July 21, 1810, and concludes as follows;— " The entire substance of this Narrative is supported by eighty- four official documents, which are deposited in the hands of the Secretary of State for the Foreign Department, in Loudon. - I shall now pioduce only fifteen, of different dates ; the remaining documents, under the bands of Rocham- beau, Bertbier, Macdonald, Bernadolte, Murat, and others, will he printed with my observations; wherein, 1 beg leave to assure you, you will find some very striking details, the remembrance of which, and with some reason, you have nearly lost— When 1 quilted France, I acted consistently with my obligation to honour; when you qualified tnis use of the rights of man with the odious term of coxcardfy desertion, you judged of my conduct according to your own, when you left Egypt.— I gave you my oath uf fidelity ; you swore to make justice the principle of your government; you were the first to violate your oath, and you have released me from all engagements with respect tu yourself.— On'the first favour- able opportunity, and Ihe time is not distant, the whole amiy aud all France will shew you, that a tyrant cannot become so through perjury, without meeting his merited punishment."

The idea suggested in Viator's 2d Letter, ( see Journal o'f the 25th July), of'a Bell attached to every Mile Cut, for a few Miles from all large Towns, says a coriespnodent, is apparent- ly judicious ; and lie hopes to see these POLICE TOCSINS speedily adopted. The expense of them would soon be saved by rendering Patroles much less necessary : and as they might prevent robberies and murders, both policy and humanity are motives to induce the adoption. The Cottages themselves come belore our consideration on the view of humanity. How many people every winter, iu passing over Commons, peiish in the snow ? This could rarely happen, if the benighted weary traveller knew that by keeping the ruad be never could be more than 880 yards fruin a Hons?. This would be a stimulus to his exertions, and lie would there find win mill and shelter from the inclemencies of cold, dark- ness and storms.— Cottages are now often dispersed ou the obscure holders of Commons, instead ol being— where they should be— by the road- side. Cottagers themselves in such situations would be more moral characters, then they now too often are. Tlicy would be more shy of bringing home various kinds of plunder, when they weie more liable to ob- servation, and therefore to detection- The Lord Bishop of Lichfield and Coventry confirmed 1810 peisons at Drayton on Sunday se'uuight, and 996 at Newport, on the following day. Tbe number of candidates for Confir- mation at St. Chad's, in Ibis town, on Wednesday last, was 1970. This number falls short of that confirmed in the year 1805 ; but it should be taken into account, that it has not been usual ( as in the present year) for a confirmation to be hoiilen at Ponlesbury, where the Bishop of Hereford had lately confirmed upwards of 900 candidates. These num- bers conjoined make it appear, that the present yeai's confirmation is a considerable increase on the last On Tuesday, at. the Visitation, a very excellent discourse on the duties of the clerical profession was delivered by the Rev.

It is no slender proof of the general stability of the Pro vincial Banks, that out uf 700 of these establishments not more than 13 or 14 should have, been seriously affected by the late diminution of confidence in country paper,; and the greater part of these are expected to be doclarcd perfectly solvent, although temporarily inconvenienced by the failures iu London.— I'lie Welsh Banks have all firmly stood their ground ; not a nreatheven of suspicion has approached either.

OENTtEMEU, From a paragraph in Mt Eddovves's pnner of yestenlay ( August lsi), I have been stimulated to addiess a few lines to you; and hope they will be attended with good effect.— That paragraph says, yon " hare resolved to erect a new " bridge over the Dee at Overton, according to Mr. Penson's " plan :— instead of the present one, which is narrow, in- " convenient, and really dangerous."— The principles of its danger are not stated. If tbo structure were decayed, I should of course not presume to say a word on the subject ; because the necessity of tbe w ork would preclude all objections; but, to the best of my recollection of what it was a very few years ago, probably that is not ihe case.— That the surface, or road w- av along it from end to end, is narrow and inconveni- ent, and the entrance tn it dangeious, I admit. The parapet walls are too low also — But surely, Gentlemen, there can be no cause, if the piers and arches are good, that the ichile structure should be demolished ; when the error on the surface rn3y be so easily remedied. Bridge- building is very tedious and expensive labour: and, what is an aggravation to the expencc, it is often rendered doubly so, by the errors or wilful plans, of modern architects.-^. They build ; it stands a few years; and then down it goes ; and they must build again. Instead of utility, economy, and durability, they Consult ornament and appearance, too milch. Our forefathers did not consult the line of brauti, the curve, so much as their ( useful, less prudeitt, progeny do ; but they th night the lino of strength much better ; and accordingly, instead of rounded piers to face the stream, the bridges of ancient structure had the sharp- angled cut- water piers. In this case the water loses its rolumnar force. By the two oblique lines converging to a central focus, the water is thrown into the centre of the arch, and immmediatelv propelled - rmtouoti it, without injuring the structure. Besides, these sharp angles have another good effect: after long frosts when Ihe ice is brought down in lartre masses, with the floods of a thaw, Ibey immediately break the ma « s, or ditect it into the ccntre, and away it goes on with the stream. There are no lodgements of ma< s behind mass against tbe. upper side of Ibe bridge ; whose weight is itself a great cause of overthrowing the edifice ; especially with the unceasing force of a great body of water giving momentum to that weight. But, Gentlemeh, fbe rounded pier, first receives the im- mense stroke of several { hating tons of congelatcd water; and then serves as a resting place for it to accumulate. When it comes rolling down with a dash against the pier, which shakes the structure, it is nut broken and propelled as in the other Case of tbe cut- water angle. Hence, may be easily accounted for, the fiequent falls of modern- built bridges. The cement in such bridges never can acquire its duritv. The vibrations occasioned by these glaciated battering- ramsf these bodies of ice, never admits tbe process of combination or adhesion to take place as it would bv a principle of con- struction which shall take off the momentum of those shocks. If 1 mistake not, OVERTON Biidge has the cut- water piers : but of this point my recollection will not enable me to speak with certainty. If it be so, and the structure be firm, I hope, Gentlemen, you will pardon the fieedom of a stranger, in requesting you to pause before you carry your resolves into execution. If your resolutions be not like " the laws of the Medcs and Persians," surely, Gentlemen, you can alter them : and, instead of a new bridge, widen the surface by extended beams of wood, with I > fty frame- work sides of wood, aud widen each entrance. This may be done at an expence very small, wheu compared with that of a bridge entirely new. At all events, Gentlemen, my letter may have some utility, in affording hints for the construction of future new bridges, or the repair uf old ones, conformably to the judicious plan uf our forefathers. Make use of ornament in HOUSES as much as you please; but let the. duration of BRIDC. ES be the first object ; safety the second ; convenience the third ; aud ornament the last and tea;*. 1 am, Gentlemen, respectful! VIATOR SALOPI'ENSIS. Shropshire, August hi, 1810. P, S. It' my advice herein be not attended to, or if it cannot be attended to, so far as to save the old bridge; let tne recommend you at all events to have sharp piers for the new, and, if my advice were worthy of your attention, instead of using stones for the angle, let them be strong liollorv pieces of cast- iron. These would never become rounded like stones, but preserve their sharpness; agd as your river is not navi- gable, it matters not hoiv slurp.— These would instantly cut the ice into bits. Oil these iron, corners you may have fig- ures 1,2,3, & c. to ascertain the feet in the height or decrease of the fl jods aud droughts, aud thus preserve parochial records.

Mr. EDITORS In mv first letter respecting highway cottages, I mentioned a pamphlet from which I then promised to send you a few e xtract*. That promise I am now going to fulfil.— It was printed, as I said before, in the year 1755 : but the coire spordence fergan in December, 1753, and closed iu April, 1754. Tlie title ot it is, " a Series of Letters to and from a " Member of Parliament, relating to'a Scheme for the " Repair and Preservation of Clay- Roads ; with pertinent ". Observations on Highway. Officers, Turnpikes, and Broad- " Wheels."— Whether this correspondence was leul or sup- posed, I will not assert nor deny. It carries fair evidence of reality ; and that ; s sufficient. The style is proper for both : the member is polite and liberal, the projector modest and unassuming. In tiie iiist letter he savs, that " Projects often promise fine things in the theoiy, which, when applied to use, dis- appoint our extravagant expectations fiom them. Projectors can ill broiik any rubs thrown in the way of their projects. In answer to the projector's - second letter, the member says thus, " 1 hope the lute act for broad wheels, will render any further schemes altogether needless; for our roads never can be cut up, but will be greatlv improved by them; of which you seemed to be convinced last year, when we con- versed together on the subject." Now, Mr. Editor, I could wish to Tctiow what was the issue of this " late act for broad wheels," passed before the year 1754, ofthe last century ?— was it repealed, or ever enforced ? I not, why so? Surely in the space of half a century the roads would hr. ve been ' t-. veh better than they are, if such a law - had been properly enforced. Was it tried, anil found unavailing ? If so, why renew such a law ? Is this law to be like that passed before the publication of those letters ? I consider it highly absuid to have laws made, and not duly put into practice. I therefore do hope that the law, as lately decreed*, will be vigorously enforced, without relaxation or any partiality; because I have long been convinced that the narrow wheels of carriages with heavy weights have been the occasion of labour like that of Sisyphus, only cutting up tbe roads that they may'be again repaired :— arid the very manner ot their repair is an aggravation of ( his evil; for the dirt in dry weather is beaten into the wheel- ruts that it may be forced out again in act.- whereas if the ruts were properly filled with hard stones beaten to a suitable s: Ee, in the bourse of time there would be firmness in such tracks, and the wheels would move almost on the nail- head.— Even ' stage- coaches, whtch- often carry heavy w eights, should not be allowed wheels so nairow as tliey now are. If the roads were tolerably smooth, their velocity with a broader w heel would be not less than it now is, and the safety to the passengers would be greater; for a carriage could not be jo easily overturned. Ou good roads, if the wheels'of - Mail- coaches were half as broad again as they now are, they might tun 7 miles au hour with quite as much ea- e as they now do. Ori the rifbt method of repairing roads, 1 have a few ori- ginal observations to offer at a. future day. The old proverb is well- founded, that " once done, is twice done." No carriages, except chaises, chariots, and gentlemen's - coaches, should be allowed narrow wheels, and even those 1 doubt not will, in time become broader: as well from motives of ( economy as of safety ; for they aie now made slight to suit the interests of the coachmakers, and the surgeons. However, until the use of bioad wheels become general, it is very ce; tain that they will be attended with inconvenience in some road « . Let us now attend to what the projector says, in answer to the member.—" As to broad wheels rendering any future schemes unnecessary, I must here, Sir, take the liberty to differ from you; though my sentiments, with respect to their expedience and usefulness are still the same with those I enter- tained last year. But I neither was then, nor am now of opipion that they will answer in clay roads ( as we now ma- nage thtni), where wheels with narrower fellies are allowed to come. " In streets, or upon well- paved or gravelled roads, the new breadth is undoubtedly much preferable to the other; but, m softer roads, cut up by narrower wheels, I apprehend thev will be found veiy inconvenient. And, in long, rainy seasons, particularly, I'll venture to foretell, that clay- roads, bv being much travelled upon, with wheels ot different breadths, win beatnldh cut, and be converted into a glutinous puddle or mud ; in which state such a quantity of clayey puddle will dam before, and so adhere to these broader wheels, as shall make an un loaden carriage enough, many times, for tbe draught of such number of horses as are allowed by Act of Parliament. , ,. „ " Upon these accounts, Sir, would it not be expedient for the Legislature to nduce the number of horses, by which carri- ages with the narrower fellies shall be drawn, to two or one : for otherwise broad wheels will never be much used, nor con- sequently ever have a fair trial. 1 have conversed with several waggoners in these pat ts, and find that some through perverse- ne « and others upon more rational principles, are determined not to procure nine- inch wheels, but intend to betake them- selves lo carts with three horses." In these observations, Mr. Editor, any man of plain com- mon sense will peiceive sound mechanical reasoning: but I presume that the late act lias provided against the evil here adverted to, and compelled carts as well as waggons to use broad wheels : therefore tbe perverse waggoners cannot exer- cise tin ir pcrvcrseness, but must conform to general piactice, Ultimately for their own good. One of his positions seems to contain a fallacious principle, that of reducing the number of draught horses to one or two. In'refutation of it, 1 shall not use any other words than the few following token from Mr. Archdeacon Plymley's Agricultural View of Shropshire ; a work which 1 presume most ofthe Gentlemen of that county have read; and thev, who bave not, ought r. nmediatel'y to do so - In p. 217 the writer speaking about roads, says, that " a short and overpowered < 1 team does more damage to the roads, than a greater num- " be r of horses, which draw easy and pass al - ig much quicker. The I road wheel is better than a stiong team with the narrow wheel. Be the horses many or few, taiscbief cannot arise from such wheel cutting the road. Let there be none ot her used, and no limitation to the number iff horses ; but a b. mited might to every waggon. In a few years the roads would be w hat they cught to be ; and as tbe ' expense re^ i site to keep them in repair would be much less, by consequence there would be no occasion to augment tne Turnpike Tolls : perhaps, they may be diminished on carts and Waggons. 1 all other tolls continue as they now aie, there could be no jiist cause to murmur. . Having thus finished my extracts from the pamphlet, an, I nddetl such comment's as I thought necessary, 1 must now, Mr. Editor, request you to indulge me with a little more space m I should presume that the gentleman would not answer yes; or, if he did, I should desire him to r « - consider the matter; when he would probably answer with the negative ; and perceive the futility or nonsense of his own remarks. Without such toll- barriers, probably such roads would be scarcely passable ; therefore the increased celerity and safety of progression, though slow and hazardous when compared with other parts of the country, must fairly be considered as athple equivalents for the money drawn from the purses of travellers at tbe turnpike gates. 1 consider the Turnpike and Post- Office taxes as two of tbe best in our kingdom : for there is real benefit rendered to so- ciety, in exchange for pecuniary contributions : nor is the ratio of contribution at present unreasonable ; but if they were to j be doubled or trebled, the service aiid the recompense would not be duly proportioned. Sir, I will trespass on you no farther ; but, thanking you for your indulgence thus far, I subscribe a third time, Respectfully your'?, July, 1810. VIATOR. Account of the Ottomans, a People who eat CI " ay. [ From Humbol's Tableaux de la Nature, vol. i.] On the coasts of Ctimana, of New Barcelona, and of Caraccas, visited by the Franciscan motiks of Guayan? in returning from their missions, there was a tradition prevalent, that tribes inhabiting the banks of the Orinoco eat earth. On the 6th June, 1S00, we spent a day ' in a mission, inhabited by the Ottomacs, who eat earth. The village called La Concepcion of Uruana is situated in a very picturesque manner, upon the declivity of a rock of granite. Its latitude I determined to be 7. 8. S. north, and its longitude 4. 38. 38. west of Paris. The earth which the Ottomacs eat is a fat and unctuous clay, a real potter's earth, of a greyish yellow tint, coloured by a little oxide of iron. They select it with much care, and gather it on particular banks on the sides of the Orinoco, and of the Meta. They distinguish by the taste, one kind of earth from another, for all kinds of clay are not equally agreeable to their palates. They knead this earth into balls, of from 4 to 6 inches iu diameter, and bake it at a slow fire till its outer surface becomes reddish. Before they eat these balls, they moisten them anew. These Ottomacs are for the most part a. very savage race, and have an aversion to i'ta- A General Court- Martial has lafily been held at Brighton, on Corporal Robert Curtis, of the Oxford- shire Regiment of Militia, on charges preferred against him, viz. I. " For having, on different occasions, en- deavoured to excite a spirit of discontent and dissatis- faction, by attempting to persuade the men of the Oxfordshire Regiment of Militia, that they had been defrauded by their Colonel of certain articles, viz. shoes, stocks, & c.— 2. For having spoken disrespect- fully of his Colonel and other Officers, particularly on the 24th of June last,— 3. For having made a false accusation against Col. Gore Langton, of the Oxford- shire Regiment of Militia, in a letter addressed to Lord Charles Somerset, commanding the Sussex dis- trict, stating, " lhat he had laid the circumstances of his complaint before the Colonel, who Had refused him satisfaction."— Upon which charges the prisoner has been found guilty of the whole ; and is sentenced to receive 1000 lashes, and to be reduced to the ranks. The Marlborough packet, that very gallantly beat off a French privateer, the other day, ou her passage from Lisbon, was commanded by her Chief Mate, Mr. James. The following are some further particulars of this affair, hs given in a Falmouth letter, received vesterdaj : " Oil the 2fith inst. in lat. 48 12. long 10. 0. W. the Marl- borough packet, commanded by Mr. James ( acting), fell in with a large French brig privateer, pierced for 10 guns on each side, fighting only eight guns each side; at three P.

At 3. 50. the eiietny hoisted French colours, and commenced firing her bow- chasers, which we did not return, being at too great a distance; cut away our jolly- boat from the s'ern; at four, commenced action from our stem and quarter guns; 4. 30. close along side, yard- arms locked, arid the enemy attempted to board, but were repulsed; continued close action until 6. 30. ; at that time, we having shot away her maintop- mast and main- yard, and otherwise mutst have dis- abled her, she sheered off, and hauled her wind to the north- ward. About the middle of ihe action the enemy hoisted the bloody flag at the foretop mast- head ; wh; ch was replied to by three cheers bv the brave Tittle ' crew of the Marlborough, consisting of but 23 persons, including three boys.

Among wfhtitri are the following: proveiivent.-——. The nations of the Orinoco, that are were wounded on board the Marlborough. Mr. James,' about farthest from that canton, say proverbially, when they wish to speak of any thing very filthy, " It is disgusting • enough for an Ottomac to eat." When the waters of the Orinoco and Meta are low, the Ottomacs support themselves'on fish and tortoises. When the fish appear Srt the surface of the water, they kill them by means of darts, with a dexterity which we have often admired.— When the rivers experience their periodical overflow, the fishing t'eases, for it is as difficult to fish in rivers become too deep", a!> in the open sea. During this in- undation', which lasts two or three months, the Ottomacs swallow prodigious quantities of earth. We have found in their huts immense Stores of it, heaped up in pyra- mids. Each individual consumes daily three- fourths or four- fifths of a pound of earth according to the account which Fray. Ramon Bifeno, a very intelligent monk, a na- tive of Madrid, who has lived twelve years among these Indians gave us. The Ottomacs themselves say, that, in the rainy season, this earth is their principal food. In ad- dition, they eat little fishes, lizards, ind fern- roots, when they can procure them. They are so fond of this earth, that every day they eat a little of it after their repast, to regale themselves, even in the dry seasons, and when they have abundance of fish. These people are of a very dark copper colour. Their features are as ugly as those of the Tartars. They are fat, but they hitve not a large belly. The missionary who resides among them assured us, that he has remarked no difference in the health of these savages, during the time that they eat this earth. Such is the simple narration of facts. The Indians eat great quantities of earth, without their health suffering from it. They consider it as a nourishing kind of food ; that is to say, they find that this food satisfies them for some time. They attribute this satiety to the earth, and not to the other very bad articles of diet which they are enabled to add to it. It may be asserted, that, in all the regions of the torrid zone, this desire for earth has been observed. In Guinea the negroes eat a yellowish earth which they call caouac. ' The slaves - which are brought into America, endeavour to procure a similar gratification, but it is always to the detriment of their health; but the. Ottomacs do not suffer in the least from the practice. Fiorin Grass.— In the grounds of the Rev. Dr. Wynne, of Bangor Iscoed, Carnarvonshire, several line specimens of this grass have been found, and experi- ments w ill be made at the proper season for planting this apparently useful discovery of Dr. Richardson.— Mr. Turner, of Penyhyru Cottage, Llangollen, has pro- cured some plants, aud has discovered that it grows very abundantly iu that vale— he has planted three large beds in his garden.— At Kernioge Mawr, at the edge ot different streams, very fine specimens are found.— It grows abundantly iu the grounds of the Rev. Mr. Hum- phreys, of Glan Conway ; from which, and other in- stances, agriculturists are enabled to point out exactly this desirable species of grass, with which the Princi- pality, it is thought, universally abounds.— In the vicinity of Bangor it is found in great abundance ; in several parts of the meadow land it is in large bodies, equal lo a plantation; all which instances tend to prove that it is a native of the soil. Caution.— J. Clarke, post- chaise driver to Mr. Ste- phens, of the Angel Inn, Worcester, has been commit- ted to prison, for running over a child of Air.

J • two and a half years since, ( then acting in the command of the Bamc packet, Captain Bull remaining at home, on leave) engaged and beat off a French privateer, of 14 guns, in the West Indies, after an action of five hours. The following statement of a gallant achievement of our brave Tars appeared in the Hull Advertiser of Saturday :—• " Yesterday a ship was brought in here, named the Success, loaded with wheat and yarn; she was cut out of Bornholm, on the 18th ult. by 18 seamen aud marines, in the boats belong- ing to his Majesty's ship Woodlark, Capt. Watts. She was bound from Pillau to London, and bad been captured bv the Danes who had taken 26 lasts of wheat from her. ' The officers and men in the Woodlark's boats pushed boldly into the harbour, reserving their fire until nearly alongside the prize, when they fired and instantly boarded her ; all the crew of the Success, except one man, leaped overboard, and swam to the shore. The captured vessel was nearly unrigged, and lying within pistol- shot of two batteries, which commenced a heavy fne upon her and killed one British seaman and marine, and wounded four others before they got her under way. ' Twenty- two privateers of different sizes were at the time lying higher up the harbour; three of the nearest of them fired several shots, and sailed in pursuit of the Success ; the Captain waited their approach with coolness, and when near enough, fired two or three vollies of small arms, and killed two Danes, when the privateers gave up the chace." Two persons at Wroxham lately agreed to drink porter against each other for a wager; the terms of which were, that he who drinks most should be the winner, and the other pay the reckoning. One of them drank fifty- two half- pints of porter in fifty- five minutes, and his competitor drank forty- four half- pints in the same species of time. The former, after his victory, to shew his invincible sottishness, s A allowed down five Single half- pints and then row ed his boat, from Wroxham to lie riling— a living proof " that all are not men who bear the hitman form." A girl, about 12 years old, having coveted a watch which belonged to a carter in Dundee, a near neighbour of her father, she, by the assistance of a key, entered the carler's house; and hail got possession of the objeel of her wishes ; when, hearing a footstep on the stair, she ran to the fire place, and - ascended the chimney.— The hue- and- cry was instantly raised, and the thief was discovered sitting on the top of the chimney, at least 50 feet from the ground-. A crow d of people assembled in the street, and eyed with horroi her perilous situ- ation. A constable, who was employed to take the thief, having thrust his head and shoulders out of a sky- light, the girl's terror became extreme ; and, scrambling down the outside of the chimney, she ran along the roof of the house to the very edge of Ihe eves- drop. Some humane people prepared blankets to receive her, iu case she should fall; but the girl continued, however, to run on the roof; and was at last taken by the united efforts of a messenger, a toivn- officer, aud a slater. Hit II .- I. IVIIV. OI - (<• a Tour through South Wi les by the Rev. J. Evans, B. A ") though I strongly object to the tenor ot the following lines relative to turnpike roads. In passing through Pembroke- shire he says thus : . We ascended a high ridge of table- land, over which, for ten miles, lies the public road ; which without exception may be considered as the best ill the kingdom, and unobstructed bv the bar of a turnpike. — Indeed, in traversing both England ' and Wales, it isobseivabl", where toll- gates are most frequent, the roads are generally I he woist; where fewer, better; and where fewest, best of all. ' The roads in many parts ot the kingdom will corroboiate the former observation, and those of Caernarvon and Pembroke- shires will justify the latter." This icveiend tourist, whom 1 admit to be a man of sense and information, has, in this instance, discovered less judg- ment than in molt other cases which tell under his notice. That he maj have staled facts it is not my attempt to deny : but the simple statement of facts is not sufficient. Ills words evidently afford inference against the utility of turnpikes-. wheieas he ought to have examined causes as well as effects ; and, as a sound logician, he should have accounted for ehe from the other.— Common sense should have told him lhat where the soil is rocky, and the materials for making good roads most abundant, the consequence must be, that w hen the roads are once formed, the expense would be much less for keeping them in repair, and therefore, less necessity for turn- pike gates: and that the frequency of such bars to the travellers'progress, must consequently be greatest ill those parts where the soil over which the roads pass is least adapted for durability of form, aud where the materials for repair aie least contiguous to ttie line of progression. Another cause probably is, that where turnpikes are less frequent, there is less tiuvelling; hence theie is less wearing and destruction to the surface: but that m the richer soils where the pre duce is most abundant, there will be more, oc- casions for conveyance of that produce from place to place by horses and carriages, to supply the demands of Ibe nu- merous population; and therefore, more just occasions lor the frequency of toll- gates, to repair injuries. The question 1 would put to Mr. Evans, or to any other man making such shallow or superficial ob » eirations, would be ibis- Do you think, Sir, lhat the roads in those countries, would be better il there were fewer gales ; and progiesstvely improving in a ratio with the paucity of bars? . * ' The bill, an Abstract ( if which w as given ra the Salop au Journal of JUNE 18ih, did not pa a into a law. - Eon . since that time has substituted black ones instead, A duel was fought, a few days ago, near Market Raisin, of a singular nature, originating iu a love affair. The parties were a druggis! aud a cooper. On taking the ground, the former produced his will, which he requested hll present to sign : this, after a little hesitation, being done, he delivered a handker- chief, containing his portrait, and a letter to the lady in question-, into the hands of his Seconds, whom he took leave of with tears. The seconds had previously agreed that the pistols should only be loaded with powder. At a given sign, the druggist tired, when the cooper, pretending his antagonist had acted un- fairly, ran up to him and discharged a pistol, pre- viously provided and loaded with blood, close to his side, upon which he tumbled into a ditch, and on his second taking him up, exclaimed, that he was killed. It was indeed fotiud, upon examination, that he had received a wound in the side; owing to the bloody pistol being discharged so near him. A young man, who stated himself to be Captain Webster, of the 10th light dragoons, was apprehended on Tuesday last at Bristol. He had been previously at. Bath, where, under this assumed character, he obtained credit to a considerable amount. The im- postor was discovered by the arrival of Mr. Wedder- liurne Webster, a Lieutenant in the 10th, at Bath.— The culprit, it seems, had, in the course of his mock character, forged drafts on Messrs. Greenwood, the agents of the regiment, to the amount of .€ 90. In consideration of his youth and connections ( he is only 19, slates himself lo be the son of a Clergyman, and to have held a commission in the Militia), Lieutenant Webster declined prosecuting.

Bishop of Derry.— A number of the prov'mc'al and some of the London public prints have lately been very instrumental in propagating a report of the Bankruptcy of the Bishop of Derry, in consequence of being in- volved too much in speculative puisuits ; what degree of credence ought to he placed in such a statement w ill be seen from the following extract of a private letter, written by a Clergyman of the diocese of Derry, to his brother, a respectable Clergyman in the city of Chester:— " You say in your's, the Bishop of Derry appears in the Gazette; 1 do not know how that could be the case, because I thought his had been merely a loan, to a party who wanted S money to caTry on a very useful work.— It is possible he may j not have used precautions known to- be necessary in tbe mer I eantile world, to have protected himseif from liability to the I losses of the house, which he had assisted with money ; how- ever I had not heard any thing upon the subject, till I saw his name stated in the Morning Chronicle and the Chester Cpur- ran. t, quoted as authority for it. " The circumstance 1 believe when told, will redound much to his lordship's honour:.— Two voting men of active minds and excellent character, were desirous to establish a manufactory of tbe description called Russia duck. They began it upou a very small scale, for want of capital. It happened to be in • the vicinity of tbe bathing- lodge of the Bishop's family. His lordship, who is always employed in promoting objects useful to the country where he resides, saw that this work was capa- ble of becoming highly beneficial to that part of the country, one of the wildest in Ireland, the barony of Ennishven ; he therefore assisted them ( to what extent I know not, but cer- tainly liberally) with his purse, and this establishment was succeeding beyond expectation, when the unfortunate failures in Loridun and Liver,* ml, drew into their vortex the minor mercantile people of this country, and gave a blow to the public credit., which it was impossible for many, even the most respectable houses, ' Successfully to combat, ' This house, ( though I understand it closed for a mere trifle far less than its machinery and the stock oil hand would have produced) such was the- State of the money market,, was overwhelmed with the rest. I feel confident the liberality of the Bishop, bad he been on the spot, would bave shielded it from destruction; for iu its success, was involved the support of many hundreds; the welfare and prosperity of a district of country, which till the commencement of ibis establishment, had no manufacture but whiskey— no respect for the laws, and no trade but smuggling. From this stnte of things this barony, by the patriotic exertions of the Bishop of Deny, iu a very great degree, was rapidly emerging ; and I have seen no individual whatever, speaking of the unfortunate failure of that establishment, who ( lid not speak of it as a misfortune, which could not easily be- exeeeded. " I visited it on my tour last summer, acd if I mistake not ( independent of hundreds of poor around the country) there were three hundred children fed, clothed, and educated in that establishment, in the most excellent manner. The boys were in a place near half a mile distant from the girls, and the care that was exhibited by the gentlemen ofthe establishment for the well- being of the children was most astonishing. 1 write now from my recollection of what I saw then when 1 made an excursion from Derry to Bunerauna, and 1 am convinced that the outline I have given you of the advantages to be derived from the success of this establishment, and which now ( unless the same liberal- Bishop shall raise it from its ashes) is lost for ever, are mueti cndei- rated. But my object was meiely to do justice to its patron the Bishop, and I cannot but think it an evil sign of the times, to be so ready to lower the character of the best men, without any sort of proof to palliate it. ' The Bishop of Derry is not more known by his princely fortune, than by his princely use of it. ' The schools lie has established— the fund for the widows ot the clergy of his diocese— the enlargement of his plans for the support of the poor and infum— the charitable loans he has set on foot, all these are acts, which as tliev could not be hid under a bushel, ought to have seieened him from reflections, which ascribed to him motives, so much in opposition to those by which he appears always to have been actuated, as far as the public can form an opinion of him, which is the only ground on wh ch I can form mine. " I did not mean when I commenced this letter, to say more than contradict the statement made in your paper ; but the recollection of what I saw of that establishment, and of what the proprietors told me of it last year when I visited it, re- curred too strongly, and led me to observe more fully upon it."

NUMEROUS Medicines have been offered to the Public for the Cure of Venereal and SoorbutiS Complaints, tbe King's Evil, and the Disorders incident to Females;— every one of which are'said to be infallible. But when the Objects which are daily viewed in the public Hospitals, as weil as in private Families, are contemplated, the fallacy of these Prescriptions become obvious, whiles Huni- emity shuMers at seeing so many fellow- creatures thus become a Burthen to themselves and their Friends.— MER- CURY is the principal I Igredienc used in tbe generality of these Nostrums, the debilitating Effects of which are wet! known to every Person at all acquainted with Medicine.

I have, however, been asked, " will you put your tenants out of your own power ?" Yes, so far 1 certainly would, and for this reason— that 1 do not wish to live a moment longer thau while I entertain a good opinion of mankind ( Loud applause).' It has ever been my rule to converse and lo act openly aud freely with my tenants, and never have I met with the slightest disrespect from any one man, not even close to my park pales.— This I consider to be a decided answer to those who say, that lo give away leases is to give away one's power; and upon this is my firm conviction grounded, that ff gentlemen of landed property will but act liberally, they will seldom have cause lo complain of their tenants." Sir, with E. W. Agricultural Report for July.-— The wheat crops in all the principal corn districts have improved far beyond the warmest expectations ; fortunately less mil- dew has prevailed than was almost ever know n amongst these plants; and the ear has set so kindly iu general, as to promise an ample compensation for the apparent defect in the scantiness of straw. The heavy rains at the close of the month will, il is feared, prove injurious to the corn on the hilly countries. Pease are generally good, but the beans have suffered materially from the collier. The oats and barleys in most countries are expected to turu out a fair average crop. Although the first sowings of turnips generally failed, all the sub- sequent ones have planted well, particularly the drilled Swedes, which are always found the surest produce. The grass lands have benefited so much by the rains, that a great extent of them are shut out in many parts for a second mowing, with a prospect of an abundant swath. Potatoes arc expected to turn out the largest produce that has been known for many years. The hop plantations have failed universally, from the heavy dew, and the increase of vermin, which are its de- structive produce. The meat markets hold up their high prices. Lean stock of most kinds has had a fall, except the Spanish sheep, which have so much recovered from their late depreciation. there is a safe and certain Cure for them.— 1 am, the greatest Gratitude, your obliged Servant, Liverpool, 2L7 September, 1810.
