• v i f i S' ! I PRINTED AND PUBLISHED, FOR THF/ PRCJ^ I. ' : ORS, BY G F. HARRIS. VOL. X. No. 481. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 15, isio. PRICE SIX- PENCE HALFPENNY. WEDNESDAY'S POST. I. N1I) ON, TITSBAT, l) M. 11. THE object of the movement of Massena, in the direction of Santarem, which has been Called a . tetreat, remains unexplained. It was reported yes- terday that lie had been joined by Drouet's division, and the other corps which were advancing to his sup- port, mid that he had laid siege to Abrantes; but as there has been 110 arrival from Portugal, this rumour ennld originate only in conjecture. In the mean time, if are may credit the accounts from the Continent, the enemy continues to send large bodies of troops into Spnin. Some letters and papers to the 20thnit. have het- 11 received from Hamburgh, which have furnished ns with the following article relative to the efforts making by Bonaparte for the subjugation ofthe Pen- insula :— " FROM THE FRONTIERS OF SPAIN.— Since the middle ot last nioiith ( October) several regiments of cavalry, and sonic columns of infantry, have passed by the great military road from Bourdcatix to Bay- onne, and from thence to Spain. Quarters have been prepared at Bayonne for a numerous corps, to arrive about the loth instant. " There can be 110 doubt but that the war ill Spain v ill be concluded this winter. We have had many as- surances that his Majesty the Emperor, and the Prince of Neirfchatel wiH take the command of the armies there in person. A part of the eqnipage of his High- ness arrived here on the 23d of October, ami has by this time reached Burgos, where it is to await him. The battalion of Guards in Old Castile, at Vittoria, Burgos, and along the road to Madrid, have received marching orders. Apart of these is destined for the reinforcement of the army in Portugal, to free that kingdom from the English yoke. " On the 23d of Octobcr the King of Spain left Ma- drid forLerida, taking withhiti the whole court and the royal guard. A strong garrisdt! was left in the ca- pital, under the orders of Gen. Billiard. These troops have lately received their pay, in consequence of a remittance of gold, which arrived from France. The utmost tranquillity prevails. The head- quarters ofthe army ofSpain are continued at Seville, ami from thence will be directed the siege of Cadiz, which is to be prosecuted immediately." In consequence of the last intelligence from Portu- gal, we understand that Government have paused be- fore they send out the intended reinforcements. Colonel Downicgoes out to Portugal, not with dis- patches, but with an official order from Government to Lord Wellington, to supply hiin w ith officers from the army, as he proceeds immediately to Spain, w ith permission from tile Spanish Government, to raise a brigade in Spain, on the same footing as the Portu- guese army was embodied, to be officered entirely by British officers. Major Gen. Sir Montague Burgoyne goes out to Gibraltar, br ing placed on the Staff in that garrison, iu fhe room ol' Ix> i d Blaney, taken prisoner at Malaga. Some additional Mohitenrs have arrived in town. One i> t < In n:,< < mt.. in< a new Decree against the press, from whirl? it appears that the number of printers liaviug been reduced by antecedent edicts, the ptesses, fonts of types, and other such dangerous weapons, as may still be in their possession, arc to be declared to the Prefect of Police, if in the department of the S.' ine, and elsewhere to the departmental Prefects; and application is to lie made to thein for permission to keep or use them, under pain of imprisonment, for not less than six days, or more than six mouths, and, of course, the confiscation of their printing materials. Caligula, when he made his horse a Con- sul, could scarcely have entertained a more despica- ble idea of the Koman people, than Bonaparte en- tertains of his subjects. Into what a state of mental blindness is he gradually plunging one of the fairest portions of Europe I Its inhabitants may neither see, nor hear, except so far as he pleases. Frenchmen never enjoyed much liberty of speech or action; but now they are actually degraded to something below an intelligent class of beings ; and will, if this tyranny continue, as soon as the lights derived from happier times shall have died away, be the most ignorant race of men upon earth How will they wonder, when, at the fall of this tyrant, the general occurrences of Europe ( from which they are now debarred) are let in upon them ! Then will " The charm dissolve apace, " Aud as the morning steals upon the night, " Melting the darkness, so will their rising senses " Besiu tochase the ignorant fumes, that mantled " Their clearer reason." The other articles in the French papers are a Rus- sian bulletin, giving an account of some successes in the war with the Tin ks; an order at Berlin for burn- ing English manufactures; and some account ofthe proceedings iu the Swedish Diet, which terminated its session by a resolution against Gnstavus Adolphus and his posterity, prohibiting them from ever enter- ing the Swedish territory, under pain of death. Bonaparte's furious decrees for the destruction of ftritish commerce, have been enforced by every State on the Continent, with the exception of Austria and Russia. His Majesty had a relap- e on Friday, occasioned, it i- Muted, by taVmg too limcli exercise in his apart- ments at the Castle, on Thursday; in addition to which, it Is said, he was atflictcd with a bowel coin- plaint. Saturday's Gaxette contains an account of the cap- ture ofthe French privateer Roi de Naples, ofJl guns anil 43 men, by the Royalist, Cajit. Downic, off St. Valery en Ceaux, on the 5th inst. The principles of Independence are rapidly spread- ing throughout Spanish South America. West Flo- rida has lately followed the example of other pro- vinces, and established a provisional Government of its own. By a private ship a great variety of papers have l>< en received from the United States, but not of a l iter date than those we have before announced lo the 5th lilt. The sanguinary affair at Quito had roused the indignation of the people of Caraccas and Car- t. ixena, and had disposed them to adopt tho most conciliatory measures towards their friends, and the most vigorous against their enemies. The unfortu- nate persons who accompanied General Miranda in his expeditions from Now York, and who wore made prisoners, availed themselves of this favourable op- portunity to apply for a release from their long con- finement, which request the provisional Government granted, and ordered their liberation. The brig Experiment, Captain Doty, arrived at New York on the 7til ot October, after a passage of '.)."> days, from Uatavia. The Captain reports that t so days before he sailed, the Commander of the Spice Islands ( Fitz) was shot by order of the Go- v iiior General, lor having given up those islands to ilu- English. A number of engineers had just ar- rm. ii « t Hutavia front tiie Isle of France, for tile pur. pose of constructing fortifications. The seat of Go- vernment had been removed from Iiatavia to Bulten- zog, a place about 5D miles from Batayia, where the Governor- General has elected a most splendid palace. A11 English squadron passed up the Chinese Seas about the 25th of June. A11 American vessel, called the Betsey, bound from New York to Bourdeanx, has been brought into Ply- month, and detained, for having violated the Orders in Council. On Sunday morning last the sloop Morning Star, belonging to Plymouth, Lavis, master, sailed from thence w ith some passengers, for Fowey, and when within five miles of till' latter port, the sloop w as be- calmed, and in consequence, tile passengers, together with the master of the vessel, took to the boat, for the purpose of getting ashore. Soon after leaving the ves- sel thev were followed by a huge monster, the nature of which could not at first be ascertained, baton his coining close to the Stem of. the boat, it was found to be a large grampus, upwards of forty feet long, the tin< of which reached six feet above the surface of the water. Its magnitude caused great ahum to the pi r- sons in the boat, but they kept beating it about the head with the oars, in order, if possible, to drive it away, which was after sonic time effected. It was close to the stem, of the boat, which was expected every moment to have been upset; fortunately, how- ever, that was not the ease, and all the persons were landed in safety at Fowey a short time after. The Grand Jury have reported the Debtors' side of Newgate at present so crowded as to be detrimen- tal to the health of the prisoners. The subject is now under consideration, by the Corporation, at the in- stance of Sir Richard Phillips. Rritweli House, near Bnruliam, in Berkshire, be- longing to the Hon. G. Irby, was broke open 011 Wed- nesday night, and robbed jof a quantity of ancient gold and silver coins, wearing apparel, & c. On Thursday evening an elderly woman of decent appearance, was observed walking forsomc time, ve- ry disconsolately, backward and forward 011 Black- friars- bridge ; and about nine o'clock she got on the balustrade, and was in the act of throwing herself into the river, when by the timely aid of a female, who rushed to her assistance, aud caught hold of her clothes, she was rescued from a w atery grave. A consider- able crowd soon collected 011 the spot, who inquired the cause of her attempting to commit so rash an act: and the only reason she assigned for having so done was extreme distress. Several persons endeavoured to console her, by advising her lo return home, offer ing to attend her thither; but Ihe poor creatine de- clared she had no home or place to go to; that her friends were all dead; and that she had not tasted food for some days. She was at length reluctantly taken to the watch- house. Early on Sunday morning the premises of Mr. Long, copper- plate printer, in Clemcnt's- Iane, Strand, were entered by some villains. They got into the premises, it is supposed, by climbing over a wall in the yard of the next house, where it is thought they had concealed themselves until the family Iwd gone to bed; they then broke open the kitchen windows, got into the kitchen, and from thence proceeded up stairs, where they forced open the parlour door by means of a pick-' lock key; they then proceeded to the cupboard, aiid broke it open, whence tiny took silver plate, table cloths, and other valuables, to the amount of upwards of 5001. Thev afterwards went into the pantry, anil took several silver tablespoons, salt- cellars JScc. and after putting the keys of the doors into the locks, packing up the plate, See. left the door of tile house open, and got clear off. Saturday morning about three o'clock, an alarm- ing fire broke out in Lisle- street, Leicester- square, ill the extensive premises occupied by Mr. Simeon, at the Mexican Coffee- House and American Hotel, and wc regret to state that Mr. Simeon and his wife perish- ed in the flames. A waiter, who slept iu the garret, is said to be missing; and a boy is so dreadfully burnt, that his recovery is doubtful. Some lodgers who were in the house, together with the waiters and female servants, almost without clothing, escaped, partly by the roof and partly by the street door, upon the alarm being given by the watchman. Mr. Simeon was an old and faithful domestic to the late Duke of Portland, and attended his Grace at his death, from which time he had been head cook to his Royal High- ness the Prince of Wales, He afterwards took the house iu question, which was fitted up in a superior style ofeleganoe as a hotel and coffee- house. The un- fortunate people were but recently married, aud had 110 children. An alarm of fire was given 011 Wednesday night last, in Well- street, East Smithfield, when it was dis- covered that aburuiiig link had been throw n by sonic incendiary 011 a soap- manufactory. A girl passing at the time, was overheard to say that she knew the mail who did it, and afterwards described him to be one of the firemen belonging to a certain Insurance Company! On the 12th ult. one of those singular animals called a Merman, was taken in the nets of some fishermen in the river near Monmouth. He is described as fol- lows;— The upper part bears an exact resemblance to a man, the middle to a beast, spotted like a leo- pard, a tail like a fish, the hair 011 the head green, red eyes, tusks five inches and a half in length, and mea- sures from head to tail thirteen feet and three quar- ters. Wc were 011 the first relation of this story, in- duced to treat it as fabulous, but having made some inquiries on the subject, we are now enabled to state that such an animal has been taken, and that an in- spection of him will afford ample gratification to those whose Curiosity may induce them to visit Mon- mouth, in the Town Ilall of which place he is now deposited.— WORCESTER JOURNAL, POTATOES.— In the summer of the year 1809, a potatoe, exceedingly strong and luxuriant, was ob- served by Joseph Husscy, ( the gardener at Chamber- Hall, near Manchester,) to shoot up spontaneously among SOIIIP onions, which he encouraged by drawing the onions from about it, aud loosening the earth to give it room aud liberty to expand. After some time he laid down the different ramifications, at a distance from each other, covering the lower parts of them wilh soil; and at Mie usual season of taking up this root, the produce was 110 less than 361 lbs. and many of the potatoes lib. each.— As a matter of curiosity, lie planted these potatoes the spring following, ( most of them whole, but the largest cut in two,) one yard from each other, in a hole made for the purpose, of considerable size, with a small portion of dung under each, and adopted precisely the same method of treat- ing tliem lie hail used the summer before. The ground which tliey occupied was about 120 square yards, and the labour bestowed upon them but trifling, and chiefly at vacant hours. Tiie produce has been abun- dant, amounting tp 4 loads and mollis. 12 score to the load! Lieutenant Power, of the 88th regiment, now in Watcrford, has received a letter from a brother Of- ficer of the 1st battalion of that regiment, at present in Portugal. It contains nn anecdote relative to the conduct of that gallant corps at the battle of Busaco, which, we are persuaded, will lie highly gratifying to our readers; — In that bloody affair, the 88thor Con- naught Rangers, bore a conspicuous share. In the course of the day, they successfully charged a body of French troops three or four times their number; at length they got so completely wedged in amongst the 36th regiment of French infantry, that they had not room to use their bayonets; but the Connaught Boys were not be intimidated. Every one of them could handle a shih'lah before he could shoulder a musket. This was not a moment for deliberation. The early habits of our brave youths occurred at once to the whole regiment. These supplied all their wants. They immediately turned up the butt ends of their muskets, and gave the French corps stub a specimen of Irish cudgel play, as the survivors will not soon forget! It may be unnecessary to add, that they were completely successful, hut it would be un- pardonable to omit stating, that their gallantry was proudly witnessed by Marshal Bcrcsfortl and Lord Wellington, both of whom complimented Colonel Wallace and his brave Counanght Rangers, on the field, in the handsomest maimer, for their conduct on this occasion. Oil the morning of the 59th tilt, a fire broke out in the paper- mill belonging to Missis, Harris, at Escln- sham, near Wrexham, All exertions used to extin- guish the flames were unavailing, and the loss sustain- ed is great; but the proprietors arc happily insured. What occasioned this calamity is not known. Thursday last a Portuguese prisoner, confined on board the Sail Ysidro, at Plymouth, ( having been taken 111 a French ship) entered into the English ser- vice. This circumstance so irritated an Italian, who stood by him, that he instantly transfixed the unfor- tunate man, plunging his knife to the handle into his bosom, and, 011 the Portuguese starting round, lie plunged it iu the same manner into his back. The Italian then endeavoured to destroy liitfiself, but was prevented, and when in custody, again endeavoured to choak himself by swallowing a half- guinea, and some cloth. SILENT NATION IN AMERICA.— At a late assem- bly of the deaf and dumb, the Abbe Sicard mentioned the discovery of a nation iu the northern parts of America, which had 110 language, but used signs as. the medium of expression. A remarkable circumstance is, that the signs 1 employed by this silent race, arc nearly the same as those devised by the Abbe for the instruction of his pupils. TENDENCY OF CURRENTS.— On the oth of De- cember, 1807, Mr. W. Somcrvillc, a midshipman in his'Majesty's service, was off the cost of Wexford, in a prize, at the distance of about 10 leagues. Recol- lecting an old story of a watch having been hoven overboard in Spanish America and taker, tip in OJd Spain, he in a frolic wrote a letter to his father, resi- WOOL.

To his great astonishment, about a fortnight afterwards, he received a letter from his father, stating, that the letter had been picked up 011 the shore of the island of Anglcsea, by a fisherman, who took it to the Rev. Mr. Rakets, Rector ofTy- guine, and that that gentleman had transmitted it, in an envelope, to Mr. Somerville, of Dublin.—- It is well known tiiat the current sets nine hours out of twelve up the Irish Channel, which must have caused the expeditious passage, the distance being upwards of 200 miles. MYSTERIOUS MURDER.— Several Irish and Lon- don papers have given a mysterious account of the sudden death of a lady of liiglj respectability in the county ofGalway.— From our knowledge of the Irish character, and the inherent good- nature and kind- ness of the gentlemen of that country, we refrained from giving publicity to the story some time, until it cainc before us in the following circumstantial manner: " The distressing aud delicate subject to which we have already adverted, antl upon which we are now again about to enter, Is the violent and sudden death ( we are at present unwilling to say murder) of a most respectable gentlewoman in the town of Eyrecourt, It appears that Mrs. Montgomery, one of the sisters of Giles Eyre, Esq. k gentleman of considerable con. sequence, w ho has been upon more occasions than one a candidate for the Parliamentary representation of this county, and who is, at this moment, aLieut.- Colonel in the county of Galway militia, was found dead in hor own house 011 the night of the 13th last. " The Messrs. Eyre ( her brothers) either suspecting, or perfectly satisfied in their miuds that she had been murdered by Mr. Montgomery, her own husband, caused him to be confined in his house, in which the melancholy catastrophe had occurred, The maid- ser- vants ofthe house, three in number, they also caused to be apprehended antl confined in Bridewell, for the purpose of compelling them to discover the manner in which their mistress had come by her death, as she had dined a very short time previous to her decease, ap- parently in as good health as she had ever enjoyed. A coroner's inquest was holden 011 the body 011 the morn- ing of the 14th ( the day after her death), when the jury, having deliberated during the entire of that day returned the verdict of" Sudden death!!"— If the ob- ject of the jury, in finding thissingular and extraordi- nary verdict, was to exculpate Mr. Montgomery from the odious imputations under which that unfortunate gentleman laboured, the object was not accomplished — his liberation did not follow. The brothers of the deceased had procured and brought forward clearer and more conclusive evidence against the accused, than that which they had previously submitted to the jury, and had him continued in custody until the fol- lowing Saturday ( the 27th), 011 which day he was to have been transmitted to this town under a strong mi- litary escort, to be confined in the county goal, for tiie purpose of abiding his trial for the aliedged mur- der: but at eleven o'clock 011 the morning of the last- mentioned day, the prisoner effected his escape, and though immediate and diligent search had been made, he has not since been discovered. It is said that a ve- ry yonng child of both parties, w as the only witness to tiiis melancholy tragedy; and the child, we under- stand, says that the death of Mrs. Montgomery, who was far advanced iu pregnancy, was occasioned by a kick in the stomach which she received from her hus- band, iu consequence of some trifling altercation, caused by a difference of opinion upon some iuimatc- tial subject of a domestic nature! We have also learn- ed that Mr. Montgomery acknow ledges that he was ir- ritated to give the kick ; butadds that it happened on the morning of the night on which the lad v died, and, from thence infers that it did not cause her death ; and in a letter which he wrote aud left behind him, we understand he intimates his intention of coming forward 111 due tune to abide his trial."— Gitlway Chntt% SPLENDID HISTORY OF ENGLAND.

But the snper- fargo ofthe Howard, who is arrived in London, says that " a few bonis previous to her sailing, a report fesehed the Howard that the Regency had received ail fKpfws from the army, announcing that the French had begun their retreat from Santareni." We have received Dutch and German papers to file ? t1i, and letters to the 8th, but they contain nothing of political importance. An article from Amsterdam mentions the burning of a considerable quantity of En « lish goods ill that capital, in conformity with the system of conflagration established by Napoleon. A respectable house in the city has received a Iet- ter, dated Hamburgh, November 23, from which the following is an extract:—" This day we received the certain intelligence that Austria had refused to pot in fevre the decree of the 50 per cent, tariff, and banting the goods of her subjects; and that she has gone » o far as to reclaim the losses her subjects residing in II* towns of the Confederation of the Rhine have sus- tatw'l by such proceedings ofthe Governments where MfH fosses have taken place.— Further, that Persia bod made peace w ith Russia, and Turkey was expected jto follow her in the same laudable business." A letter from Harwich, dated on Tuesday, says :— ** Bv { lie master of a neutral vessel arrived from Hol- land, we are informed that a requisition has been made n> that country for 7000 men, to man the French fleet in ft*- Scheldt; that a ship of the line and two fri- $ 3fes sailed from Helvoetsluys some time ago, but the ship of the line, from her draught of water, got on titcie, aud w « > obliged to return to Helvoetsluys.

This morning Government received dispatches from Rio Janeiro, by which we learn thatLinicrs and five if his associates have been tried aud executed by the nctt Government of Buenos Ayres. They were con- victed of treasonable practices against the legitimate Government of Ferdinand the Vllth, anil were put to death on the 2Gth August last, at a short distance from Buenos Ayres, amid the acclamations of the popnlare.

As the Charles was known to have been captured by the Amelia frigate, the Committee at- Lteyd's sent to Mr. Old* for " an affidavit of the treatment he received from the commander of the Chailes, and on receipt thereof, a few days since, transmitted it to the I. ords Commissioners of the Admiralty, and they have had the pleasure or'being inlhrnjed, that in consideration ' » ( if the circumstance, their Lordships have been pleased to give an order for the release", ofthc. eom- m. nd'. r ot the (.' bark's ou his jiaro. ie- The cause of the American ship, under discussion in ( lie High Court of Admiralty, is that of the Fox, which vessel sailed ft ' oiii the United States direct for France on the faith of the revocation of tlw Edicts of Berlin and Milan, and is detained by the captors, under the Orders in Council. As this suit involves the wlnjle question between the United States and this country, with respect to those Orders, it lias ex- cited meat interest and attention. It came on before Sir Iv*. Scott on Tuesday, and was postponed until to- morrow. We learn that, on account of the deli- cafe state of our relations with Amcrica, and the indecision of our Cabinet with regard to this impor- tant question, that the judgment will be again de- ferred. Wo have grounds for believing that a High Official Authority has remonstrated against the jurisdiction of the Court of Admiralty on that occasion; and that from the same quarter a communication has been made to Marquis Wellcsley of the Proclamation of Mr. President Maddison, and an answer has been ap- plied for, containing the ultimatum ofthe British Ca- binet on the subject of the abrogation of the Orders in Council.— GI.

The Hon. General Mathew being proposed for the chair by the Rev. J. Nellie, and seconded by AV. Bagwell, Esq. a short conversation took place on the propriety of ladies vot- ing, the meeting being called by gentlemen only; this, however, passed over; and it was then briefly stated by Mr. Nealc, that the gentlemen who requested this meeting, were of opinion, that the selection ot a proper person to preside over the public amusements for the winter season, would conduce to the comfort and happiness ofthe visitors, and promote the general interests of the town ; he therefore proposed that an M. C. for the winter season should be elected, This was seconded by Mr. Bagwell, and put by the Hon. chairman, but negatived without being pressed to a division. On Saturday morning about one o'clock, a fire broke out at Mr. Hayden's, linen- draper, in Chelten- ham. It w as fortunately discovered before much pro- gress was made; and by strenuous exertion was ex- tinguished with but inconsiderable damage, except to the goods and windows of Mr. Hayden, who was ab- sent at tbe time the accident occurred. From the contiguity of the premises to other buildings,' the greatest apprehensions were entertained by the neigh- bours for the Safety of their dwellings, but their fears w ere soon allayed by the activity of the townsmen.— A favourite dog, which was usually left for the pro- tection of the goods in the shop, perished. No cause has been assigned for the accident, hut it is supposed it must have originated by the snuff of a candle falling unperceived on a piece of cloth. Monday last Charles Little, a boy about seven years of age, fell into Alstone- brook, near Cheltenham, and was unfortunately drowned.

It is a singular circumstance that the price of the quartern loaf in London should be Is. 3d. ( though the Lord Mayor is doing all in his power to detect the combination among the trade), while the price at Birmingham is only Is. IJd. and though one of the principal establishments sends its agent to purchase grain at Mark- lane, and has also to pay the carriage from London to Birmingham, yet, iu spite of this ex- pence, it is enabled to sell the quartern loaf so much below the London bakers.— How can this be ac- counted for?— BIRMINGHAM HERALD.

GENTLEMEN, rT^ H AT a Combination of Peers of the most X opposite principles was formed to prevent my suc- cess in the present very important contest, is an assertion that icqs neither hastily nor unadvisedly made t nor have subsequent events occurred to induce me to nhamfm it, Hail I so dune, I must hare acted in direct opposition to the convictionof my own mind, as well, I may venture to affirm, as ta that, of the general sense of the great body of Freeholders ofthe County. In the declaration of my Op- ponent, lhat " in the Landed Interest alone was vested the Elective Franchise of a County Member-, and by that alone its purity could be preserved" the spirit of this Combina- tion wat ecidently displayed. It became my duty most unequivocally to avow an opposite principle, and to slate my opinion of the rights of other Intci'ests, which ought tube exercisid in the Election of a Representative of this County, Another Address soon after uppearcd, in which my Opponent allowed the importance of the Commercial, Manufacturing, and Agricultural Interests, to the gene- ral welfare; but it was a stretch far heyoprd his candour, to concede the ri dit lie had preciously denied, e. f titer being entitled to interfere in matters of Election; and ( o pre- vent the possibility of misunderstanding the extent of his concession, ( I had almost said, with a view of rendering them bolh unintelligible,) the two contradictory Adver- tisements were for some lime exhibited in the saine Public Papers. The first he has at length withdrawn ; and any further obsenation upon il. becomes unnecessary, I can- not, however, quit the subject without assuring yri. il, thai as it is the height of my ambition to obtain the distinguish- ed honour of being returned to Parliament, by a Combi- nation of all the Interests which this respectable County involves, so it toil be my most earnest endeavour to at- tend to, and promote, the interests of its Freeholders of every description. By your voice, the campuratipe me- rits of my Opponent and myself are to he decided) and depend upon it, I will give that vqice an opportuni- to be heard with effect.

The paitiiijans of the Earl of Berke- ley, without supposing that this doscem- hoit of nn worthy friend Lord Sherborne could itaiVh-. a'oinidon his original principles, had hoped either seduce lit n into the Berkeley lo. terest, nj, at all events, to make him a temporary instrument to serve their oirn i in'.; poses. Indeed, the current of opinion to. this ett ct was so strong, that my firmest reliance on ihe r peal- ed frivate declarations of Mr. Dutton would soon have been shaken, had not this opportunity offered itself tiv ihspet the deception. 1 know that irriiiy f rends ofr the Blue Interest were resolved, on tins occasion, to try the validity of the libel which the deseriei $ of the Kerktley party had assiduously propagated. ' Ytv- y could not readily accredit, thai, a man of fortune and, fiirure in his Country would quiet every feeling that is dear to him, hold his father's principles ill general contempt, and desert the standard of his party, for a consideration so inadequate as the love of.-. serving Lord Berkeley, to the utter ruin of his oiv u reputation and that of his adherents. Colours themselves are only pleasing to the eye j but as th? emblems of par- ties, as well as of nations, they speak to tlje soul,, de- monstrate tne feeling, and contain the very life- blood of character aud united exerltoq, A party, like an army, tkiat will suffer its colours to be pulled down and degraded, is better suited to the oari of a gaifcy than the plains of danger -, and he who w'ill submit to fight under tbe banners of his opponent, imist be lost to every principle of honour and consistency. These were the fetlings which actuated myself, and every other honest heart ofthe Blue Interest, previously to Air. DutlOn's dinner; and we resolved, on this occa- sion, to put the question at issua, by wearing our . an- cient Tiyte Blue Colours. Having" resorted to' the place of fneeting, li e were alarmed at the sight of thfi Orange decorations ofthe room, and the Orange ban- ners displayed from the Castle with which the table « as graced ; and were on thp point of retiring in dis- gust: but the accommodating principles of the Gentle- men of the other party soon- yielded to oilr firmness and consistency. THE ORANGE Cor. oyns. waits STRIIC^ J and we had the gratifying satisfaction of seeing'that tiie combined exertions of a very few TrueiitUes. wpie sufficient to haul down the boasted ensigns of the Castle, in the view of. a croiyd of its most determined adherents.

Hitherto I have been a firm supporter of the worthy Baronet, but I have now seen in the public papers a recapitulation of a speech frqm a most respectable character, charging him with a mode of canvass of which I did not think him capable; and jm- less the charge he most plainly and satistuotori.- y con* trailicted by the Baronet himself, common candour, calls upon every independent frceiu liter to disavow and renounce his countenance of sqeli a measure, ( sir AVilliam, upon Cipiv^ sspig a person who replied he had promised Mr. Dutton, is repieseaitcd. to have a- ked him " ifhe was independent i" and, on being answered in the affirmative, to have sa| d " then iiiltitl signifies your promise!"

I cannot sav flint tiie electioneering language ill which the partisans of Siir William have styled hint " The Champion of Independence" has altogether met. with my approbation, but little did { inspect t| iijt so serious a charge as that which has been made against lij'ii could have been traced to him in person. It ISJ however, with Mi- William, either loudly to contradict it, or silently to ponfirmit. Let Um take which alter* native be pleases.

MONTGOMERY, TTVES there a savage ruder than the stave ?— j Cruel as death, insatiate as the. grave, Kil. se as the winds that round his vessel blow, Remorseless vis the gulph that yawns below, In* who toils upon flie wafting flood, A Christian broker in the trade of blood ; Boisferotisin speech, in action prompt ami hold, He buys, lie sells— be steals, lie kills, for sold. A t'lioon, when sky and ocean, calm and clear, Bend round his bark, one bine unbroken sphere ; When dancing dolphins sparkle through the lirine, Ami sun- beam circles o'er the waters shine; He sees no beauty in the heaven serene, " No soul- enchanting sweetness in the scene, J int darklv scowling at the glorious day, t'nrses t e winds that tinier on their way. When swidii with hurricanes the billows rise. To meet tlie lightning midway from tiie skies ; When from the mibnrtben'd hold his shrieking slaves Are. cast, at midnight, to the hungry waves -, Not for his victims strangled in the deeps, Not for bis crimes the. hardened pirate weeps ; But primly smiling, when thestnrm is o'er, Counts his sure gains, and hurries hack for more. Lives there a reptile baser than a slave? — T/ iathsome as death, corrupted as the grave, S ' e the dull Creole, at his pompon* board, Attendant vassals clinging i- Mind their Lord; Satiate with food, his heavy eyelids close, Voluptuous minions fan leni to reposes Prnmi oh the eoon- tlay couch he lolls 111 vain, Delirious slumbers rock iiis maudlin brain: lie starts in horror from bewildered dreams, His blood- shot eye with fire and frenzy gleams ; He stalks abroad; through all bis wonted rounds, The neyro trembles, aud the lash resounds, And cries of aiigmsli, shrilling through the air, To distant fields his dread approach declare. Mark, as lie passes, every liead deeiiii'd; Then slowly rais'd - to curse him from behind. This is the veriest wretch on nature's face, Own'd by no country, spin n'd by every race ; The tetlier'd tyrant of one narrow span, Tiie bloated vampere of a living man; His frame,— a fungus form, of < luug- lull bi- th, That taints the air, and rots allot e the earth ; His soul; has he a soul, whose sensual breast Of selfish passions is a serpent's nest? Who follows headlong, ignorant, and blind, The vague brute- instinct of an idiot ninul ; Ev'u in bis motlier's lap was chili'd to stone; Whose heart, midst scene- of suffering, senseless grown, Whose torpid pulse no social feelings move ; A stranger to the tenderness of love, His motley Itaratn charms his gloating eye, Where ebon, brown, and olive beauties vie; His children, sprung alike from slotii and vice, Are born his slaves, and loved at market price; Has he a soul ?— With his departing breath, A form shall hail him at the gates of death, The spectre Conscience— shrieking tin ongli the gloom, Man, we shall meet again beyond the tomb!" PERSIA. About ten miles from Baku, a city situated by an excellent haven in the Caspian Sea, is a phenomenon of a very extraordinary uature, called the Everlasting Fire. The soil is dry and rocky, and there are built upon it several ancient temples of stone, supposed to have beeu all dedicated to fire. Among t hese is a lit- tle temple, in which the Gouries, a sect w ho consider fire as the uiost perfect resemblance of the Deity, per- form their devotions. Near the altar is a large hollow care, from the end of which issues a blue flame, like that of a lamp burning with spirits, but to appearance more pure. This ( tame the Indians pretend has con- tinued ever since the flood, and they fancy it will last to the cud of the world. We are informed, that at a small distance from the temple is a low cleft of a rock, iu which is a hollow gap two feet from the ground, near sis long, and about three broad, from which is- sues a blue flatne like that already described. In rami weather it burns low, but when the wind blows it sometimes rises eight feet high, and yet it is not per- ceived that the flame makes any impression 011 the rock. But what appears stilt more extraordinary is, that the earth, for a hove two miles round this place, lias this extraordinary property, that 011 taking up twoortluee inches of the surface, and applying a live coal, the part uncovered instantly takes fire, almost before the coal touches it. The flame heats without consuming the soil, nor does it affect the earth that is near it; yet this earth, carried to another place, does not produce this effect. If acaueor paper tube be about two inches iu the ground, aud closed up with the earth below, sin touching the top of it with a live coal, aud blowing it, a flame immediately issues, with- out burning either the cane or the paper, provided the edges be covered with clay ; aud this method the people there use for lighting their houses, as tbev have no other door but the earth. Three or four of these lighted canes will boil water iu a pot, and thus they dress their provisions. ' The flame may be extinguish- ed in the same manner as that, of spirits of wine. The ground there is dry and stony, and the more stony it is the stronger and clearer is the flame; it will burn lime to great perfection, and has a sulphurous smell, ' like naptiia, ( a kind of chalky clav that takes fire like brimstone.) but this smell is not very offeusive. Near the place where is found this remarkable phe- nomenon brimstone is dug, aud springs of uaptha are found. The principal piaces for the black or dark grey uaptha, is the small island called Wctoy, in the C'nspi IU Sen, which is uninhabited, except when they are taking uaptha- The springs of this chalky soil boil 11 [, highest when the weatiier is thick and hazy, and the naptha frequently takes tire on tlie surface, running in gieat quantities flaming iuto the sea, to an almost incredible distance from the shore ; but in clear weather the springs do not boil up above two or three fc- t. in height. This oily substance, in boiling oyer, li.' comes of such a consistence, that, by degrees, it. almost closes up the mouth of the spring, and some- times entirely, forming a hillock as black as pitch, lint when a spring is stopped tip in one place, it breaks out in aiiotties; arid some that have not been long open, firm a mouth eight or ten feet in diameter. the substance has an unpleasant smell, and is prin- . cipallv used bv the poor in lamps, and to bnil their ' provisions, but gives tile food a disagreeable taste. It hums best when mixed with a small quantity of ashes; as the re is great plenty of it, every family is well sup- plied. The people keep it i 11 earthen vessels/ under ground, at a small distance from their houses, on ac- count, of its being very liable 10 take tire. In the peninsula of Apheron is a white naptha, rif a 141 noil thinner consistence, which the people drink as a cor- dial and medicine. It is also used externally, and is carried iuto India, where, being properly prepared, it is made into a must beautiful and lasting varnish. SCOTCH DIVORCES. There is a circumstance recorded in the Scotch j newspapers lately received iu town, so extraordinary I in its 1, At ore, and so contrary to the English law on ; the same subject, that we cannot help ottering a few ( observations upon it. We must premise, that, we set I the noble partiesconcerned utterly out of the question, I tor we view it solely as a public, not as an Individual J question. The case ( lieu, as it tins' been stated to the public, is this:— An English nobleman and his wife take up their residence in Scotland, and make a domi- cile in that country ot a sufficient continuance to en- title them to the rights of denization. While this pro- cess is going on, the husband is guilty of some act of conjugal infidelity, which authorises the Scotch Ec- clesiastical Courts to interfere, and to dissolve the marriage between the parties^ This is done, and the repudiated wile contracts another, and, we hope, a happier marriage. In some countries, marriage is considered wholly as an ecclesiastical, or rather a sa- eied institution, and therefore not cognizable in ttie civil courts ; and very high authorities might be ai- iedged iu support of this view of the subject; it is, however, more usually lieid, that marriage is a mixed institution, partaking of the nature nfa religious insti- tution aud a civil contract ; aud therefore in F. tiglaud 0 divorce is not complete, until the civil, as well as the ecclesiastical courts, have prouounced the disso- lution of the contract. While the Catholic religion continued to flourish in England, divorces could only be obtained by applica- tion to tin- lloly . See. The civil authorities of ihe. na tiou uev.- r dreamed of interfering in such matters, un- til the religions scruples of the Eighth demy, set in motion by less hallowed pactions, introduced tiie into - fqewe of the secular courts, and of the legislatuie, in inattersufdivorce. It is, hawevei, lu be remarked, that there were no private acts of divorce in all Ihe reign of Henry VIII.; noiieinthe reigns of his son, F. divard VI. or of his daughters, Marvor Elizabeth. By the statute 1. James/, c. 11. it was made felony for any peison to marry, having a former husband 01 wife living; but this statute was not to extend to per- sons having 1,0 knowledge of the husband or wife be- ing living ivifiin the space of seven years ; nor to per- sons divorced by sentence in the Ecclesiastical Court. The infamous case of the Countess of F. ssex and the million jtoiuerset, in this teigo, is too well known to be cited ; tliev inter- married, because the Ecclesiastical Court nullified the first marriage of the lady, and no legislative interference was held necessary to sanction the second inairiage. There were no acts of dieoice in the reign of Charles 1. In the 19th Charles tl. there " as an act illegitimating the children of Lady Anne Vtoos; and in the l2' Jd, another act to enable John . Manners, called Lord Roos, tu marry again. After the Revolution, there were four acts of divorce in the reign of Wm. 111 ; and iu that of Queen Anne only two. The reign of George I. produced but tun bills of divorce; but from the Accession to the 30th of George II. ( hero were 110 fewer than nineteen acts of Parliament of this description ; and it is a maltei of peifect. public notoriety, that they Inn e been ever since increasing, iu a fair proportion, aud with much the same public indifference towards them, as private road or canal hills. It is true, in the Lords some endeavours have been made to counteract the crimeon which divorces are grounded, by prohibiting the guilty persons from inter- marrying; but if our view of tiie Scotch law upon the subject be correct, all the hardships which parties now labour under in the House of Lords may be done away with by the rea- dier, h- ss obtrusive, and less expensive process of the Scotch Ecclesiastical authorities. Milton wro'e iu favour of the lih- le y of divorce ; aud a great deal may be said 011 both sides of the question ; but we think the trin; view that ought to he taken of the subject is tins: Will we softer so great a departure from the severe morality of our ancestors iu this respect tu take ell'ect through the operation of such obscure tribunals as the Scotch Ecclesiastical Courts? In Scotland, wlieu these jurisdictions were establislved, the clergy were possessed of au almost unlimited authority over the people, and as theie was no sin iu the eyes of the fa- thers of the kirk more deadly than that Of tervrtness, a sentence of divorce operated against the guilty party with the force of the worst judgment that the law noiy could pronounce short of capital punishment.— But in the change of manners that lias taken place, what terrors has a . sentence of divoice now ? In England, the middling and lower orders ofsoeiety are restrained fruin Parliamentary divorces on account of the ex- pellees attending tlretii ; but if the Scotch tribunals are allowed to deal out divorces at s low rate, may we not expect to see them, as well as the great, Dying to Scotland, as the land of conjugal emancipation, to be free from their- marriage bonds ? If the liberty of di- vorce isexpedient forauy class of society, it isexpejlient for ad, and therefore this discovery, or rather, revival, of a cheap remedy in Scotland for matt iihorlial discontents, may be regarded as of public advantage, We are, however, inclined to imagine that anv additional fa- cilities given to divorce would be injurious fo the pub- lic morals, and therefore we would much rather see the liberty of divorce altogether taken away, than any extension given to the pi actice. Considering the sub- ject in this light, we hope it will engage the early at- tention of Parliament, and that an immediate stop will he put to this revived practice of divorce, uliieli threatens such injurious consequences to the cause of public murals. PRISONERS OF WAR. The following is a copy of a letter which the British Government has ordered the Commissioners of the Transport Board to send in reply to all the demands ot" French Officers here to be released. It proves that, although the negocistion is broken off, our Go- vernment will still soften, as much as possible, the misery of individuals, and exchange on the principle of man for man, and 1 auk tor rank, such of the French prisoners as may obtain the consent of their own Go- vernment for their release. " Transport Office, lnndon.— Sin— The Commissioners of his Majesty's Transport Board have received your letter, dated the , aud they have directed me to inform you, that il is the determination of his Majes- ty's Government nut to send back French Officers to their own country, untiltlie Fiench Government have reteas'- d some English Officers, in exchange for the great number of French Officers who haveobtained this favour from the British Government'; or until the French Government have consented to a cartel, upon the fair principle of man for man, and rank for rank, conformably to the constant usage of civilized nations, which his Majesty's Commissioners have frequently proposed, though their efforts to accelerato an ex- chang'/ have always been ineffectual. " I am, however, to inform you, that if the French Government will send, back to England an Officer of your rank in t xcliaoge for you, or even certify offi- cially to his Britannic Majesty's Commissioners, that, upon your arrival in France, an English prisoner of your rank shall be released, you shall lustautl- y obtain your release. " You must see, that iu the present stateof affairs, your Government alone is the cause of votii detention in this country ; but if you think proper to make any representations to vour Government, your liiav rely upon it, that his Majesty's Commissioners will faith- fully transmit them. 1 am, Sir, See. " ALEX. M'LEAV, Secretary." COT'RT OP KING'S EENCH. THURSDAY.— Dubost v. the Rev, Beresfori.— This was an action brought by a Frenchman, Mr. Dnbost, an artist, against the Rev. Mr. Beresford, for cutting to pieces a picture, the property of plain, tiff, which he was exhibiting in PalUMall. It ap- peared that the plaintiff had been employed by Mr. IIopc to paint a likeness of Mrs. Hope, who is a beautiful woman, and the sister of Mr. Beresford ; but having quarrelled with Mr. Hope, he painted a picture founded on the tale of Beauty and the Beast, the subject of which is, that a beautiful young Prin- cess is shut tip in an enchanted palace, anil is visited daily by a most ugly beast, but who gives her pearls, diamonds, and jewels 111 profusion, to induce her to many him, which at length site consents to. Mr, Dnbost had painted an interview between the Beauty and her Beast, and Mrs. Hope was pourtrayed as Beauty, and Mr. Hope, whose wealth is well known, was honoured by having bis face put 011 the Beast's shoulders, pointing to a pile of riches, and a label underneath, from the words of the fable, " All this I will give thee, Beauty, to marry me."— Poor Beauty was wringing her bands In despair, at the sacrifice about to be made of her. This picture was exhibited among others during the month of June last, in Pall. Mall. At first the exhibitors received about two pounds per day; but 110 sooner was it understood that t wo persons so well known in fashionable life as Mr. and Mrs. Hope, figured so prominently on the canvass, than the rooms were crowded, and they took upwards of 191. per day 011 an average. At length Mr. Bercsford, the brother of Mrs. Hope, went one day, and with bis knife cut the picture into pieces, for which the present action was brought. All the company who visited the Exhibition expressed their sense of the strong likenesses of the figures to Mr. and Mrs. Hope.— The Attorney- General, for the defendant, said, this was a most impudent action brought by a foreigner, who had already abused the laws to which lie appealed. When he first came into this country, all his worldly goods aud chattels were one solitary picture. Mr. Hope, who was known to be a warm patron of the arts, saw the picture, ad- mired it, and gave 800 guineas for it, and further to encourage bill), desired him to paint a portrait of Mrs. Hope, and to keep his pencil going advanced the sum of 2001.; although Mr. Hope had behaved with so much liberality to the plaintiff, yet because he would not submit to further and increased demands, the plaintiff, in revenge, exhibited this picture for public inspection, and thus wounded Mr. Hope, his patron and best friend, in the most galling manner. He was convinced the Jury would not give heavy damages in a case like the present.— Lord Ellen- borough told the Jury tliey were bound to find some damages for the plaintiff', but tile amount would be a subject for their consideration. — It was clear the plaintiff was not entitled to any ompensntion for profits tlmt might have arisen from the Exhibition, because there could bo - uo doubt that tlie picture was a libel on . Ail. ami Mrs. Hopo. ' tliey luiu'iuertiv 10 consider what the colours and canvass were worth.— The Jury found a verdict for the plaintiff-— Damages, Five Pounds. FRIDAY.— The King v. J. King.— Mr. Attorney- General stated this to be an indictment against Mr. John King, ( the celebrated money- lender) charging liim with wilful and corrupt perjury, committed by liini in an affidavit tiled in the course of certain pro- ceedings in rbe Court of Chancery, at his suit, against Mr. Charles Harrison. Mr. Harrison had obtained judgment against Mr. King for i.' io. il. in the Court of King's Bench, on which Mr. King filed a Bill in Chancery to restrain Mr. Harrison from any farther proceedings at. law ; after a certain time, Mr. H. hav- ing failed to give in an answer to the bill, Mr. King obtained au injunction on the titli of April, which he served on H. 011 the 9th ; being desirous of locking up Harrison, who it was not. convenient for him should be abroad with judgment against him ( Mr. K.) to the amount of 15001.; and being aware that the only way iu which he could accomplish this object, was bv swearing that the writ of fi. fa. was not issued till after the intimation of the Lord Chancellor's or- der of in junction or restraint from execution, & c. he, on the llitll of the same month, filed an affidavit, not to the best of his knowledge and belief, but to the absolute fact, consistent with his own knowledge, that tlie writ of fi. fa. in the case alluded to, had been sued out after the 9th of April, the date of the notice of tlie order, although in fxct. the writ had been issued on the 4th of that month, before any application had been made to the Lord Chancellor.— After the Attor- ney- General liad examined evidence to substantiate this statement, Mr. Common Serjeant, as Counsel for Mr. King, endeavoured to prove, that however King might have sworn falsely, yet it could not be maintained he had sworn wilfully and corruptly, as 110 proof had been adduced that King knew of the writ having been really issued.- - Lord Ellenborougli summod up the evidence, and left it to the Jury fo determine, whether the defendant liad been really misled, or whether it was a contrivance to imprison Harrison.— The Jury, after consulting a few minutes, found the defendant Guilty. The lung v. Gardiner. — This was an indictment for embezzling pay. The defendant was Major of the Caernarvon Volunteers in 1806. It appeared in evi- dence, that for the first company, lie charged 761. when lie only paid 361. The returns were not signed by the Captain, in whose name they professed to be. The money actually paid to the second company was 261. and that charged 991. The pay to the third com- pany was 361. l is.; the charge was 1031. 13s. The pay to the fourth was 2l. 17s.; the charge was 991. 10s.— Mr. Scarlett, for the defendant, professed him- self not in a state to make any defence. The Adjutant who made up the accounts for the defendant was dead.— The defendant was found Guilty. COURT OF COMMON PLEAS. PHYSIC.— In the Comman Picas 011 Friday, during the trial of an action brought by Messrs. Price and Thomson, surgeons and apothecaries, for medicine and attendance afforded to a pork- butcher named Gvnii, who had got a sore toe, Sir James Mansfield observed, " I think it a terrible tiling, that an apothe- cary cannot charge attendance unless he gives phyi sic, whether it's wanted or not."— The daughter of the butcher, it appeared, had also a sore finger, and an opening draught had been given her. " See, gen- tlemen," said Serjeant Shcppard, " because this poor young lady happened to scratch her finger, she is con- demned to an opening draught! Take care of your fingers, gentlemen, or the Lord have mercy on your bowels!"— Mr, Dennison, an apothecary, said, f that he would not have charged 3s. 6d. for the first lotion to all persons; be w ould not have charged the pork' butcher as much as he would have charged hisLord- ship."— Sir James : " Very pleasant information."— Mr. D. said, " he was ofthe old school, and never di- rectly charged for attendance'; but when l; e thought it ought to lie considered, lie said so in a modest man- ner at the toot of the bill."— Serjeant . Viiuglian : " Now Sir, you know butchers live well; they are of- ten of a gross habit of body."— Mr. Dennison: Yes Sir; I think all professions live well when they can : nodoubtSir, you take your wine."— Serjeaiit" Vaughan: " Oh, gentlemen, would that I could produce this butcher here! No doubt. lie has a carcase bursting at every pore! and a toe that would t. ike a quarter of a pound of meal to poultice it! A toe! I daresay it would cover Lord Wellington's position. Gentlemen, yeu all know what a butcher is! Many an opening draught it must have taken to open him, and many a tonic to shut him up again!"— Sir James Mansfield, however, thought that the charges were too high; and Serjeant Vatighan consented to withdraw the re- cord; so the plaintiffs were nonsuited.—[ All this li- tigation was about a bill of two guineas, which the defendant had at last consented to pay; but law pro- ceedings bejng commenced, he wouid not agree to pay the costs also.— This is mighty well— for the lawyers at least.] ___________ FORGERY. BARON Sor. vANGER.— For some time past forge- ries have been committed to a considerable amount, by a foreigner, supposed to be an Italian, calling himself Baron Solvanger, by means of forged drafts, signed I). Wilkinson, drawn upon Brown, Cobb, and Co. Bankers, of Lombard- street, anil uttered to tradesmen and others for goods purchased, & c. The drafts were written upon the regular engraved blanks of Brown, Cobb, and Co.; but how he became pos- sessed of them remains a mystery. He arrived in this country last June or July, ami is supposed to have been carrying 011 his depredations from soon after that time, till the 30th oflast month. On the 19th nit. lie obtained a large quantity of oltl coin, and pretended to give the ow ner ( a foreigner in the city) more than lie could get in this country, as lie was go- ing to leave England, and gave him a forged draft in payment. On the evening of the same day, lie called 011 Mr. Turner, a pawnbroker, who resides near Gold- en- square, wishing to take some property out of pledge, and tendered a draft ofthe above description for 501. Mr. Turner hesitated at taking it, but the Baron as- sured him it was as good as a Bank of England note, and offered to give one of Mr. Turner's boys two shil- lings if he would run with the cheque to the Bankers to get it cashed. Mr. Turner told him it was too late, and that tlie Bankers would be shut. But the Baron ap- pearing so very urgent for tbe boy to get it cashed, Mr. Turner, eutertained no doubt ofits being a good one and took it, giving liini the property that was pledged aud the change. Next morning he presented it at the shop of Messrs. Brown and Co. for payment, when he was informed they had no such person as B. Wil- kinson who kept cash with them, but that tliey had a number of similar drafts presented for payment. Mr. Turner, inconsequence, went to the Baron's lodgings in Queen- Anne- street West, where be was informed lie had left them that morning. Information was given at Bow- street, and Rivett was sent in pursuit of him. The officer waited at his lodgings and in the neighbourhood, during the whole of the day, to 110 pur- pose; and having strong suspicions that he was gone out of the country, he applied to Mr. Reeves, the head of the Alien Office, who wrote off to the dif- ferent. ports to stop the Baron. In a few days after Mr. Reeves received information from Liverpool, that the Baron had been discovered with his Lady 011 board a sbipendeavouring to sail from that port with- out a passport. This information was communicated to Rivett, who informed the Bankers, but tliej de- clined going to the expellee of sending an officer to bring the Baron to London, as they had not paid any of the drafts. All those who have been defrauded seem to think it would be lost money to send after him, as there only remains a possibility of recovering a small part, of the property. u 1 >/> ut i'is from M. rrt h's 1 h tzitrtp.
