PRINTED AND PUBLISHED, FOR TIIE PROPRIETORS, BY G. F. HARRIS. n. -- • - VOL. X. No. 496. SATURDAY, MARCH 30, 1811. PRICE SIX- PENCE HALFPENNY. WEDNESDAY'S POST. LONDON. TUESDAY, MARCH 26. RETREAT OF MASSENA. ON Saturday afternoon a telegraphic dispatch was received at the Admiralty Office, from Plymouth, announcing the arrival of a ship of war at that port from Lisbon, bringing intelligence that Massena had retreated from Santarcm, and that Lord Wellington was iu pursuit of hiin. The sub- stance of the telegraphic dispatch was immediately communicated by Mr. Yorke to the Lord Mayor, in J'uc following note:— " Mr. Yorke presents his compliments to the Lord Mayor, and has the honour to transmit, for his Lord- ship's information, the copy of a telegraphic dispatch just received from Plymouth. " PLYMOUTH TELEGRAPH.— Massena retreated from Santarcm— Lord Wellington in pursuit, 5th of March ( perhaps 15th of March, as there is a wrong signal before the 5th)— Garnet arrived." Bv our letters received from Plymouth this tnorn- ing/ aud by the Plymouth and Dock Telagraph, we find that the vessel that brought this information is tis Majesty's ship Ganges, of 74 guns, which arrived at Plymouth on Friday evening, having left the Tagus on the 9th inst. According to the accounts received by her, the retreat ofthe French from their position took place on the 4th inst. the day on which the troops conveyed bv Sir Joseph Yorke arrived from England. In oriler to deceive our piquets, Masscna attempted a ruse de guerre, by placing effigies, dressed in uni- forms, with muskets, in front of his entrenchments ; it was, however, soon detected, and on orders being given for our army to advance, they discovered that the enemy had made a precipitate retreat, leaving behind a great part ofhis baggage, gun- carriages, camp equi- page, See. Exaggerated accounts as to the number of the reinforcements received by Lord Wellington, added to their own necessities, are supposed to have determined the adoption ofthis desperate expedient. When the intelligence reached Lisbon, Lord Welling- ton had been three days in pursuit. Letters have been received from Buenos Ayres to the 2d January. The intelligence, both civil and military, is important. It now appears that M. Mo- reno, a'gentleman ofthe sacred profession, who made a conspicuous figure in the late revolution in that set- tlement, is likely soon to arrive iu the quality of En- voy Extraordinary to this country. The following are some of the communications that have been received:— " HtiEN- os AVRKS, . TAN. 1 .— I shall write you again on the depaitureof the Misletoe, which, will probably take place in about a fortnight. 1 have now the satis- faction lu inform you, I hat the Patriots have triumph- ed over all theiiwntagonists throughout the immense region of the peninsula, from the shores of the southern Atlantic to the confines of Peru. Their principal ene- nurs are in their powei, and the authority of our Pro- visional Government has been acknowledged in Poto- si, Chuijpiisaca, I. a Paz, and Cochabamba. ' fhe cotii- ounicalion is- thus restored, after an Interruption of neailir eight mouths, red we trust that the spjings ol comineie n ii; :, • , u, ciied, anil that abundance will fiow towards our eastern territory. " Tins capital has been the scene of another revo- lution, less sanguinary than its pn cursor. It took place on the 2t) th of last month. The measures of the Junta had been directed to the establishment of free commerce, at all risks, and under every sacrifice, in direct opposition, and in manifest hostility to the policy adopted by the Spaniards with respect to their colonies, from the days of Montezuma. The conse- quence was, that the party in power, equally urged bv their fears and their animosities, pursued a scheme of rigour against the Europeans, subversive nut only of the substance, but even of the forms of justice, aud plunged all the distinguished families of our establish- ment into the dark ocean of terror. It was this party ' which occasioned the death of timers, Concha, and the other victims of Cordova, and it will be reluctant- ly believed, that the public execution of the whole body of the Cabildo was plotted by the same faction. From this Cabildo the authority of the Junta itself was derived; and of its conduct the members of the former were to be the judges and the censors. " In this awful and perilous situation of affairs, the President Saavedra luterposed, and, as commander of the forces he declared that he would not afford his assistance to any violent measures, it is unnecessary to enter into the progressive history of the intestine divisions; it will perhaps be sufficient to say, that the moderate party found the Deputies from the interior auxiliaries to their cause, and who insisted that, ac- cording to the terms of their invitation, they were to be incorporated with the Junta. This partnership in • tie Government was not much relished; and the Junta having vanquished their Spanish opponents, ex- pected to obtain an easy conquest over their new ad- versaries. Ill this hope they were disappointed. So strong, however, was their power, that the authority of the President was not sufficient; and, until the pretensions of the Deputies were enforced without doors by the demands of the natives, they did not succeed " in attaining the rank to which they aspired. " Under the new circumstances, the Junta has re- voked some of the more obnoxious of its measures : and, among these, a decree, by which all ( excepting natives) were excluded from public employments. Several persons have been recalled, who were banish- ed by the late administration, and it is supposed that most of the former decisions will be revised, and that some of them will be reversed." The intelligence in the following extract relates principally to military affairs:— BUENOS AYRES, DEC. 27.—" By an express arrited , a lew days ago, we learn, that our troops, reinforced 1 by the volunteers from Tarifa, entered Potosi on the 27th ult. 36( H) strung, and had immediately detached 600 men for I, a Paz, from whence the Goveriior, Ra- mirez had fled, after having been routed by the levy * n masse, to the number of 6000, from Coehabamba. " Notwithstanding their numerical poner, and they were composed, both of foot and horse, only one hund- red ofthetn were provided with tire- arms. The Cabildo of La Paz has acknowledged the Junta, andsent a de- putation to Potosi; Goyeneehi, the President of Cu- xio, wdio proposed to invade the province of La Paz, or I. asCharcas, has sent, a dispatch to Castello, Mem- ber of this Junta, and Commissary, with expedition to Peru, to inform him, that he submitted to the au- thorities of ttie . Inula, would confine himself within his own Presidency, and would recommend tbe same fotbearance to the Viceroy of Lima, it is not ima- gined that this qualified submission will be accepted, as the neighbouring provinces in every direction are ripe for revolution, and only waited fur tlie arrival of the forces from this capital to proclaim their emanci- pation." Accounts received from New Orleans to the begin- ing of February, communicate information of a very serious insurrection which had taken place among the negroes, who had set tire to many plantations, and destroyed property to a vast amount. The military, however, had been called in, and in order to subdue the rioters they shot every than of colour that came in their way : the slaughter was immense, but the pro- ceeding was effectual; it put dow n the insurrection. A juror wus lately fined J01. sterling, at Jamaica, for uuii- ali. « Iditvtj u « J « evasion, u. 2 delay t » Uiv CjMit. A person arrived in town on Saturday, who made his escape on Wednesday last from Antwerp, at which time the enemy had ready for sea fifteen ships of the line, manned chiefly by conscripts recently called out for the navy. On Tuesday pilots had been summoned onboard, for the purpose of taking the ships out. The gentleman ill his passage to England met with Sir Edward Pellcw's squadron, to whom he gave the information he has communicated to us. Lord George S tewart has orders to prepare his ship, the Horatio frigate, for the reception of Count Got- torp, who will leave this country early next month for the Baltic. The General Committee of Irish Catholics met on Monday, for the purpose of receiving the report of the Sub- Committee, appointed to prepare a petition to the Prince Regent for the removal of the Lord Lieutenant and Mr. Pole; bat the petition which the latter had prepared was rejected, and another, which had been written in a spirit of greater moder- ation, was adopted, there being, on a division, a large majority in Us favour. Lord Soil^ liwell, who had been nominated to pre- sent the petition for the dismissal ofthe Irish adminis- tration, officially acquainted the Committee, that lie would not form a part of the deputation appointed to present the petition for the removal of the Duke of Richmond. The account of an atrocious murder, committed upon two females at Castletin, in the north of Ireland, is contradicted in the paper ( Derry Journal) in which it first appeared. It states that the two gil ls, instead pf being strangled, were seen at Omagli a few days after their elopement, embarking in a trade to which, it appears, one of them had long shewn a propensity, and to which she had seduced her companion. This being established on the oaths of two credible wit- nesses, the young man who had been committed to prison for the supposed murder was liberated. The following diabolical and mysterious act of atrocity is related in an Irisl* paper.— Wednesday last, near Ballymore Eustace, the body of a poor pea- sant, ofthe name of Stephen Reynolds, was discover- ed outside his cabin door, mangled in a most shocking manner. It appeared that his skull had been fractur- ed, his eyes forced from their sockets, his throat cut, and five dreadful wounds had been inflicted on vari- ous parts of his body. The murder pf his wife had also been accomplished in the same spirit of savage wantonness; her throat had been ctif'aeross, and a wound appeared on her breast, so deep that her lungs were visible— and other wounds were also inflicted upon different parts. An unfortunate bcggarnian, who had on this dreadful night been admitted to share the protection ofthis ill- fated roof, shared also in its calamity; he was found iu a similar situation with his host, his throat being cut across, and several stabs had been made upon his body. The only survi- vor vyas a little girl about nine years old, the only daughter . of the owner of the cabin. We trust that her life has been providentially preserved for the par- pose'pfher being fhe instrument of bringing the san- guinary villains, guilty of such internal deeds, to the punishment they deserve. We understand that a man, principally upon her evidcuce, is apprehended, and is now in Kiltiiainham gaol. Thursday last, corporal Burke, of the South- Mayo regiment of militia, was brought from Kilcoek to Miillingar, and was soon after tried by a court- marti- al. The charge against him was, that having the command of a party escorting arms to Dublin, he shot a pig upon the road ; and that two genth men of the bar, who were then riding by ( Messrs. Wallace and Farrel,) having expostulated with him on his cru- elty, he having previously loaded his musket, discharg- ed it at them. The Court found him guilty, mid he was forthwith sentenced to be reduced to the ranks, and to receive 800 lashes. A new dock has lately been opened at Rotherliithe, near the King's Victualling Office, called the East Country Dock, capable of holding about eighty ships, intended for those from America, the Baltic, the Fish- eries, and others, containing naval stores. A manufacturer of lace, at Nottingham, was fined 101. last week, for paying one of his workmen in goods instead of money, contrary to the statute. Tuesday morning, the stables belonging to the Mar- chioness Wellesley, situated in Sontii And ley- street, Grosvenor- square, fell down with a tremendous crash, by the foundation of the building giving way. The coachman had scarcely tipie enough to save the horses from perishing in the ruins. The kitchen also adjoin- ing the premises, where servants were preparing dinner for a large party w hich the Marchioness was going to have to dine with her, gave way in the same manner, and they narrowly escaped with their lives. SLAVJ: TRADE.— The Bill now in the House of Commons, brought in by Mr, Brougham, renders the carrying on the slave trade, after the first of May next, felony; and the parties liable to be transported for a term not exceeding 14 years, orto. be imprisoned and kept to hard labour not exceeding 5 years, nor less than 3. Persons employed in ar. y vessel engaged in tiie trade, or underwriting any policy of assurance on such vessel, to be guilty of a misdemeanour, and to be imprisoned not exceeding two years. The number ef vessels condemned at Gorce, for having been found engaged in the slave trade on the African coast, up to October 1810, was 2 ships, 6 brigs, and 8 schooners ( Spanish and Portuguese): besides 2 ships, 3 brigs, and 2 schooners, detained for trial. RICHARD ARMITAGE.— This celebrated character, of whom ao much has been heard, respecting his trans- ; actions with Roberts, in forgeries upon the Bank of England, in which establishment he was a clerk, was taken, on Tuesday morning, at an inn about three miles from Ipswich, Jn a cross country road, by John Foy, accompanied by two gentlemen from the Bank, a reward of 300 guineas having been offered for his ap- prehension, as longsince as the 11th of August,— The prisoner went by the name of Barclay at the inn, and he represented himself as a private gentleman, who wished to reside secluded from the gaitjes and plea- sures of the metropolis, lie spent his time in the as- sociation of the Gentlemen Yeomen in the country, with whom he used to take tbe sports of the field, and his wife, who had just gone through an accouchement, was the only person who knew his situation.' The pri- soner was surprised in bed, first by the hostess of the inn, who informed him three gentlemen w ished to see him, and after one of the gentlemen had been in- troduced, Foy followed and took him, and conveyed him to Loudon in a chaise and four, He was taken to Marlboroiigh- street Office, and after having been identified, and some other necessary forms gone through, he was committed to New Prison, Clerken- well, for examination on a future day, where he now remains doubly ironed.— Armitage, it appears, had been at the place where he was taken, from the day li< i ttcap. sU. Tl- e prisoner appear* ii: good spirits. Proposed Severn Junction ^ anal, From the IVi/ ts and Berks Canal, near Swindon, to the Thames und Severn Canal, ai Lcilon. THE Committee ofthe Wilts and Berks, \ ylio are appointed to submit a Bill to the Legislature for making the proposed Canal, think it necessary to offer to the public a tew observations, With a view to remove the groundless apprehensions that had been industriously excited against the undertaking, and to incite an energy in tliase who are interested ill pro- ducing a competition in tiie principal articles of con- sumption, such as yoal, Iron, Copper, Paving Stone, See. To meet flic false and insidious assertions, that the Wilts and B, et'ks Company have not Water for their own Trade, and for the supply of the proixised Canal, the Committee subjoin a report of their Engineer, and tli^ y particularly call the attention of the Commis- sioners of the Thames and Isis, to the Bill itself, and more especially to the Clause of Restriction in page 7. The fact then will appear, that no powers oyer the Springs that flow into the Thames or Isis are intended to be taken ; and the Committee are ready tb admit any other restrictive clause, tliat the Thames Commis- sioners, or their legal advisers, may require. In a Printed Report, signed E. L. ^. oveden, and dated Buscot park," Oct. 22, 1810, the Author ob- serves, page 6—" Those'are not all fhe ideal schemes entertained by the Berks and Wilts; that Company urge on a Canal from Stratford- bh- Avoii by Witney, & c."— page 9—" It is to be hoped, however, they ( the Thames Commissioners) will act together, and all the districts unite in resisting the confederacy against Old Father ' Thames, and saving" tltat Royal River from its meditated destruction.''— satire page— " I have great pleasure in declaring, tliat no treaty has been concluded between the Thames and Severn, with the Wilts and Berks," '' ' The Wilts and Berks never urged < itf ( he Cava! that was proposed to lie liifide from Stratford, nor bad they ever any interview ifr communication with the pro- motors of it. And Mr. Lovedeu's opposition to the present scheme, on the ground ofattaehment to Old Father Tlumiej,* ( as he calls that River) is quite at varianpe with his former exertions, a great part ofhis life having been engaged in projecting and forwarding Plans, similar to the present, for avoiding the Thames between Lsuchlude und Abingdon. % Without doubting the filial piety which now glows so fervently in Mr. Loveden's bosom towards Hid Fa- ther Thames, the* Committee must recall to bis mind, the vey jiist remarks published in 1785, ill support of the then proposed Abingdon Canal. " Upon a further survey, however, of the Thames ( or Isis) between Leacblade and Abjngdon, it ap- pears that the bringing a Canal to Leacblade only, will really be a waste of money, as the impediments on the Thames between Leachlade aud Oxford, w ill be an absolute bar to all Commercial Intercourse. The Na- vigation of the River between those towns, is miserably bad; the Channel is narrow, and abounds in short turns and crooks; the banks are, low; it has shoal water for miles together, aiid is liable to frequent and sudden floods" ill wet, and to short water in dry sea- suns. In the sumnier fime thews is offgitin^ s au ab- solute impracticability of taking a loiidWi boat higher up the River than Oxford, and v. l. i :'. tlv'y in go up, it is very common to be obliged to huike. use of two or three lighting boats to get over the shallows; it is also a very tedious and circuitous navigation^ being near twice the length ofthe proposed Canal. ' No sunt laid out on this River, could make it so good as a Car. a); and if it was thought proper to improve it, that must be done by making actual Canals iu many places, which wotiii'l spoil a considerable quantity of latlJ; the Lee, the Calder, and the Kennet, ^ re sufficient les- sons to the Public, not to rely on any estimates, or engage in any measures, for the improvement of bad Hirer Navigations. To1 encourage Trade by Inland Navigations, it is necessary the conveyance should be cheap and expeditions, but above all, tlia t you skould be able to ascertain with some degree of certainty, tbe time' of delivering your consignments. This will be impossible by the River in question, and therefore any Canal" connected with and depending on it, must in the encj be ruined." The objections of the Land Owners arc stch as may be made to all'Cartals, and are' property subjects of'i oguIatMu'hi tlie Bill, but do not affect the prin- ciple;;' " The objection on account of the swampy it is hoped, for the credit of Oxford, will lift dropped ; and the objection with regard to the water for the supply of the Canal, will, upon investigation, be found too trivial tb require an answer." The Committee would condole with Mr. Loveden, on his short- lived pleasure, but the truth obliges them to state, that the Thames and Severn Canal Company are not only favourable to the junction, but have trans- mitted them a eojiy of their Petition to Parliament in support of it. And this Petition conveys tbe most convincing proof of the necessity ofthe measure ; for that Company, after having expended upwards of three hundred thousand pounds, find the wretched Naviga- gatiou of the River from Leachlade to Oxford, so complete a bar to their success, that they are now willing to sacrifice tho Tolls on nearly one- third of their Canal for the union with tbe Wilts and Berks, concluding, as will he the case, that the increased trade, on the western part of their line to Ration will amply repay them. 1 1 And ti| e Committee trust that the Commissioners of the Thames, will see the interest of the River ill the same light; for it is beyond the possibility of doubt, that the proposed Canal uniting the Thames and Severn with the Wilts and Berks, and thus forming a com- plete Canal Navigation from the River Severn to Abingdon, will, by opening the best communication for' London, with Glocesterslyre, Monmouthshire, Herefordshire, and North and South Wales, throw an imiiiense increase of trade into the Thames at Abing- don, which will not only superabundantly compensate for any loss that may be expected between Leachlade and Abingdon, but greatly add to their toll receipts, aud to those of the Citij of London. And any injuries to " Mr. Lovedens Lock at Bwcott," aud other pri- vate Locks between Leachlade and Abingdon, may be the subject of compensation before a Committee of the House of Commons. The accession of trade to the River Thames at Abingdon should equally indiiCe the Commissioners anil Lock Qwners of that River, and the Corporation of London, to support the Bill'in Parliament; and all the Towns connected with the Thames, Abingdon, Wallmgford, Reading, Henley, Marlow, Maidenhead, and Windsor, as well as the inhabitants of the Cities of London and Oxford, will fuuf their advantage in the'introduction of a competition ' in tile supply of the erei^£ and necessary articles of Consumption— Coal, Iron, aiid Stone. The Farmer too is mos t particularly interested iu a reduction of the' jli'ic'e of iron, at present so heavy a charge in agricultural pursuits. Only those are interested' in maintaining aii'opposi- tion, who wish to continue a monopoly in the supply of the several markets from Oxford downwards, to the * " The wnrlu, white it had a scarcity of people, underwent no other dam num than paternity and eldership."

The Committee, however, cannot avoid expressing their great astonishment at finding the University'of Oxford petitioners against a Canal, which would so much benefit the poor of their city, by producing a competition in the article of Coal, as well as ilicreasc the tolls of their own Leek, called Boulter's Lock, of which they have lately been so tenacious. It is not for the Committee to point out, although they are not ignorant of the partial aM separate interests of indivi- duals. who have instigated this opposition; but they trust it will not be persevered in against the general interest of tbe public; for when thej contemplate the character of the University*, so eloquently pourtraved by Mr, Erskirie, ( now Lord Erskine,) at the bar of the House of Commons; in the case ot Thomas Carnan, who successfully resisted an attempted ladOopolv in almanacks by ihe Universities ' of Oxford and Cain- bridge; they feel confident that'ho motives of indi- vidual interest can successfully operate, at the pre- sent day, to the encouragement of a monopoly in the supply of Coal or any other necessary of life. The Cohmfittee conclude tli? ir observations by an appeal to the good sehsfc of the People, that a free intercourse by Inland Navigation between the distant parts of our own Island, will be the greatest stimulus to industry, and our best security against a return of that distress with which our Merchants are now visited, by the exclusion of our Commerce on tiie Continent of Europe. 1 WILLIAM HALLETT, Chairman. Denford, March 13, 1811. To the Chairman of the Committee of Managahent of the Wilts und Berks Canal. SIR.— The cause of stoppage on the AVilts and Berks Canal last summer has been most incorrectly repre- sented. The intercourse with Bath being interrupted by the repairs of fhe kenn'et and Avoi> Canal, between the Somerset Coal Canal and Bath, I considered t| iat the least inconvenience would arise to the traders by making tlie necessary repairs to the Wilts aniT'Berks Canal at the same time; and for that purpose the water was'drawn out ot> tbe Canal, and the repairs could not be completed before October, The Canal is JJOW in a very good state for Work, and no similar inbouvehiehce is likely to arise for some years. Before the works of the AVilts and Beiks Canal were commenced, I, in conjunction with my late father, in one'of the dt vest summers w. thin my re- collection, and when the springs. were in their lowest state, took an aepm ate guage of tire supplies Which the Company have a povVer to take, for the head level, and found they would furnish 7131 tons per day; and I have ve; y frequently since made particular observations lipon the springs, and am confident that tbe fair average at the seasons of the year when they are lowest, is considerably greater; and many addi- tional supplies liiav be taken in below the fourth lock, both oii the eastern and western sides of the SQnimit level. ' '•• • • The 7131 tons of water will furnish 47 locks per day of eight feet three inches each, which is the depth of the locks at the ends of tlie summit; and for seven months in the year the springs produce sutficient water to supply lot) locks per day. The head level is noarly eight miles ill length, and has two feet additional depth of water; so that 480 locks may be drawn off, and still leaye the full depth for'navigation; arid if any greater. iupply should be wanted, it may be obtained by making reservoirs under tile powers ofthe Act. I have marked out one in Coat Valley tlrat will cover fifty acres, and contain 4125 locks of water; which, with the 480 that may be drawn from the head level, will be thirty locks per day, making, with the supply before stated, seventy- seven locks per day for tbe summit level during the five months of the diyesf part of the year. Hence, I conceive, the supplies of water will be ample, not only for tlje trade of the Wilts and Berks Canal, but also for the Severn Junction, even were no engine to be erected on that Canal to return the water'; bnt should the trade become so extensive as to require more, it may certainly be obtained by addi- tional reservoirs. In Coat Valltey there is a good situation for another reservoir: there are also several other places on the summit level where they may be made; and there can be no doubt that the flood- water will, every winter, be more than sufficient to fill any reservoirs that can be wanted. !

ROBERT SKELTON, Sec. THURSDAY'S POST. LONDON, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 27. RETREAT OF MASSENA. , Till: Three Friends, Watts, lias arrived at Fal- mouth, from Lisbon, with fruit. She sailed on tlie Oth instant, and brings a confirmation ofthe re- treat of Masseiia in great confusion, anil of Lord Wellington being in pursuit. Government have received no accounts from Lord Wellington's army, official or unofficial; but a letter from Mr. Lee, of Lisbon, says, the English w ere at Thomaron the 9th, and had turned Massena's position on the southern side, thus intercepting his communi- cations towards liailajoz and Morticr, and throwing liiin towards Leyria. This account Government believes. A battle is supposed to be inevitable. BATTLE OF BARROSA. A Cadiz mail arrived this morning, w ith letters and papers from that city to the 12th inst. They contain extracts from the dispatches of the Spanish General La Pena, containing an account of the result of the battle of Barrosa on the 5th, and the previous ope- rations and movements of the army. In these dis- j patches, Gen. La Pena takes credit for a full share I in the glory of that hard- fought day.— Badajoz con- j tinned oil 28th Feb. to defend itself heroically.— In j Catalonia, some advantages were ,' ained over various | detachments of the enemy, on the 16th, 18th, 19th, j and 26th of Jan. near Banolas, Badalona, and Llora. The Cortes of Spain have unanimously decreed the Thanks of the Nation to Gen. Graham, and have elected him a Grandee of Spain of the first class," free of tribute," for the " astonishing bravery anil disci- pline" manifested by his Majesty's troops :— and a . strict inquiry i to be made into the conduct of the Spanish General. In this memorable engagement, the enemy thought fo drive us back by the impetuosity of tlieir charges, but they never succeeded in penetrating our line. Our men received them with unrivalled coolness and steadiness, and in return charged them at the point of the bayonet with irresistible vigour. For an hour the fire was the hottest ever remembered, scarcely an Officer escaping without some mark of shot. Gen. Graham was himself pierced in the coat in two places, so was his Aid- de- Camp, Capt. Stanhope, of the Guards. Lieutenant- Colonel Norcote, of the 95th regiment, General Dilkes, Colonels Wheatly und Townshend of the Guards, bad their horses shot under them; Lieutenant- Colonel Colquitt, of the Guards, likewise was shot through the sleeve of his coat by a limsket ball, and a cannon shot literally touched his saddle while lie was in tbe act of dismounting to pass a ravine. Many others had similar escapes. \ Heligoland mail has arrived with German papers to the 17th inst. An article dated Naples, 15th Feb. states that some North- American ships, which* had ai rived there with cargoes of indigo and nankeens, bad been put under sequestration. Two Anholt mails arrived this morning. The Turks are making the greatest preparations for the ensuing campaign. The Grand Vizier is still at Schumla. The Russian Government has published a manifesto stating, that, in consequence of the mea- sures taken, the revenues have augmented more than 100 millions of roubles. This will supersede the necessity of new imposts. We received this morning the following letter re- lative to a plot for assassinating Bernadotte:—" Got- tenburgh, March 16. Our letters from Stockholm by the last post, inform lis of an attempt to assassi- nate the Crown Prince, as follows. In the morning of the , the Prince received an anonymous letter, desiring him not to go to the Opera in the evening, which he paid no attention to until he had ascended about half way up the stair- case ; he then recollected the letter, and turned himself about a. id left the house; after which a strict search being made, a Page was discovered with a pair of loaded pistols, to whomstrong suspicions arc attached." Great numbers of Danish naval officers, who are represented as men of great bravery and skill, con- tinue to pass through Hamburgh for Antwerp. They march at the head of detachments of Danish seamen. American papers have arrived to the 22d ult. The Non- Importation Act has been enforced. The Niobof 36, Captain Loring, is arrived at Portsmouth, with dispatches announcing the destruc- tion of the French frigate Amazon, 41 guns, on Sunday evening last, by the Berwick, Niobc, and Amelia. Slu was running from Havre to join the ships at Chcrburgh, when, being hard pressed, she anchored near the shore : the above ships attacked her: in the night the crew abandoned and blew her up. The Bcrwick had one man killed, and the Amelia one. Captain Walton, late ofthe Amethyst frigate, has been tried, and sentenced to be severely reprimanded for the loss of that ship at Plymouth ; and tbe Master adjudged to serve in a sixth rate. The rest of the crew were acquitted. Rear- Admiral Reynolds, in the. St. George, of 98 guns, with the Marlborough, Conqnestadore, Monarch, aud Poictiers, of 74 guns each, are ordered from Spithead to St. Helen's, preparatory to their sailing for the Scheldt. Intelligence was received on Saturday that the enemy have in that river fifteen sail of the line ready for sea. Sir Joseph Yorkc, with the ships under his com mand, is arrived at Portsmouth. R. Liston, Esq. is appointed ambassador extraor- dinary and plenipotentiary to the Sublime Ottoman Porte ; and B. Frere, Esq. secretary ofthe embassy. Among the Ways and Means of the year, it is said an additional tax of 2j per cent, is to be laid on all incomes above 3001. per annum 1 Tbe account of the general submission of the La- drone pirates to the Chinese Government, appears to have been premature. Great numbers have rejected the proffered amnesty, and continue their depreda- tions. The Rev. Robert Bingham was tried on Tuesday, at Horsham, on a charge of writing an anonymous letter to Richard Jenner, threatening the destruction of himself and property ; but he was found not guilty. He was afterwards tried for setting fire to his house, in order to defraud the Insurance Office, and also ac- quitted. UNIVERSITY ELECTION. CAMBRIDGE, TUESDAY.— The election for Chan- cellor commenced this morning in the Senate- House, which was fitted up for the occasion. At the upner end the Vice- Chancellor ( Dr. Douglas) took his seat at a table divided from tbe body of the room by a high partition. The two Proctors, an Assistant to the Vice- Chancellor, and a friend to each candidate, sat round this table, and received the votes written on slips of paper. On the table stood a box with two divisions, into which the votes were separately put by the Vice- Chancellor, with the concurrence of the parties around him'; and in case of dispute the vote was disposed of in a drawer. At the final close of the poll the numbers were .<— For the Duke of Glocester - 470 Duke of Rutland - 356 Majority for the Duke of Glocester - 114, Among tlie voters for the former we noticcd Earl Spencer, the Bishop of Bristol, the Bishop of Bath and Wells, Mr. Shaw Lefevre, M. P.; Dr. Marsh, . See. For the latter, Sir Isaac Pennington, and Dr. Law ( I. ord Ellenborongh's brother). The longevity of the Chancellors of Cambridge has been very remarkable, there having been only three since 1628, a period of 122 years. The Duke ofSo- inerset held that office 60 years; the Duke of New- castle 20; and the Duke of Grafton 42 years. There have beeu seven Chancellors of Qxford during tbe same period.

SIR,— History has recorded many important truths, but none more so than this: That a feeling of indiffe- rence towards the acts of government, a blind and ab- ject reliance upon the integrity and wisdom of the governors, is incompatible with the existence of a tree state. We may then pe permitted to say, that no true lover of his country's independence can contemplate the present state of Ireland without emotions of grief and despair. To conclude that the emancipation of tbe Catholics would remove every evil which afflicts that unhappy country, would be rash, but it must be a preliminary step to a conciliation which only can save the vitals of the empire from the stroke of a determined and unforgiving enemy. To those who still dare breathe the language of intoler- ance and defiance, in reply to the complaints and discontents of nearly one- sixth of our population, no- thing can be said j and whether their conduct proceeds from mistaken zeal, or the tyrannical propensities of human nature, it is equally deplorable. Posterity will wonder, that the " Watchmen" of our Church conld only defend it, by violating the first precepts of their religion. Toleration requires that no man should be deprived of his civil right on acconnt of his faith, whatever that may be. Tins is all that the Catholics ask tor, and what in justice should be granted to them. Such is . the written opinion of all the distinguished men of this age, of John Locke, Adam Smith, and Samuel Johnson, of Pitt, Fox, Burke, Wyndham, and Paley, anil many of the most respectable and learned prelates of the Church of England. But if, after all, we do not choose to tolerate the Catholics, at least let 11s cease to add insult to in- justice, and forbear from practising a species of hostility towards them, which is not in the power of human nature to forgive. We might at least refrain from circulating accounts of the bloody and immoral tendencies of their religion, which accounts we know to be false ; of printing histories of enormities com- mitted by Catholics in former times, which we also know art not sanctioned by the tenets of their faith. Such histories bear no relation to. the present age, which is, thank God, somewhat better than the bar- barism and bigotted violence of the times of which they treat. Strange as it may seem, there are still a great many worthy, and in other lespects, intelligent persons, who yet believe in the horrible doctrines attributed to the Catholic faith. Were such really professed by the Catholics, no doubt they should he hunted down and shot as the most ferocious of beasts. But we know they abhor such tenets as much as Protestants can do. The charges that are credited against the Catholics are principally these. That they believe it a duty to persecute aud destroy all Herctics; that they keep no faith with such persons; that the Pope can dispense them from the obligation of the most solemn oatii; that they may lawfully kill any sovereign, or private person, who has been excommunicated by the See of Rome; that tlieir priests can grant pardon for all sins • and that tliey can purchase indigencies for any medi- tated crime. They who believe in these charges may have their scruples satisfied by referring to the solemn answers of the six principal Catholic Universities ir » Europe, and of their Faculties of Divinity, to whom application was made at Mr. Pitt's particular desire, for the express purpose of knowing, from the highest authority, what were really the tenets of the Catholic Church, npi 11 those points which had excited tbe greatest clamour among the Protestants. The assertion that the Catholics believe it a duty to persecute and destroy all Heretics, is founded lipoid H certain clause in the oath taken by Bishops and Arch- bishops at their consecration, by which tliey bound themselves to " prosecute and oppose all Heretics and Schismatics to the utmost in their power." The best answer to this assertion, is contained in a solemn Re- script from tbe Congregation of Cardinals, and in the name, of Pope Pius VI. in June, 1791. Afterreeiting the foregoing clause iu the oath, bis Holiness proceeds to say— " Which words are maliciously interpreted as the " signal of war against Heretics, authorising persecution " and assault ' against them as enemies; whereas the " pursuit aud opposition to Heretics, which the Bisbop » » " undertake, arc to be understood as referring to their " solicitude and efforts in c inducing Heretics of their " errors, and procuring their reconciliation with the " Catholic Church." To take away all cause for misunderstanding, this clause in the oath ofthe Irish Bishops was omitted by the authority of the same Sovereign Pontiff, in 1792- The Faculty of Divinity of the University of Lor- rain, after expressing its astonishment, that such a question should be put to them, " Whether Catholics V keep faith with Heretics?" most positively answers, " that there is not, and that there never has been, " among Catholics, or iu the doctrines of the Church " of Rome, any law or principle which makes it " lawful for Catholics to break their faith with others " of a different persuasion, either in matters of a " public or private nature."— See Appendix to Sir J. Hippesley's S]> eech. The University of Douav answers to the same effect, by declaring " that it is the unanimous doctrine of " Cutltolics, that the respect due to the name of God, " so called to witness, requires that the oath be in- " violably kept, tu whomsoever it is pledged, whether " Catholic, Heretic, or Infidel."— See App. p. 80. The Doctors of Sorbomie, in the University of Paris, answer as follows:— The tenet " That it is " lawful to break faith with Heretics, is so repugnant " to common honesty, and the opinions of Catholics, " that there is nothing of which the advocates of tin; " Catholic religion have complained more heavily " than of the inalice and calumnies of their ailver- " saries, in imputing this tenet to them. As it is re- " jected by Christians of all denominations, and is re- " pnguaut to the fundamental principles, both of " natural and revealed religion, we cannot think it " incumbent 011 us to enter upon tins subject which " requires no discussion.-"- App. p. 82. The Spanish Universities of Alcala, Valladolid, and Salamanca, answer in still stronger and even with in- dignant language. That of Alcala says, " She could " not have believed it possible, that there could exist " any persons who would dare to impute to Catholics " any thing so iniquitous."— See App. p. 84. The Pope himself, in a Rescript of June, 1791, states in express terms—" That the See of Rome never " taught that faith is not to be kept with Heretics." The Pope is charged with the dangerous and im. moral power, of absolving subjects from their oath of allegiance to an nncatholic sovereign. The University of Lonvain says, that it is the doctrine of the Catholics that, no man or assembly of men, nor even the " whole church assembled in general comic, 1, can ab- '* solve or free subjects from tlieir oath of allegiance." The other Universities answer iu the very same terms. And the Class- booi; of the Catholic Coi'ege of May- nooth, states, in express terms, to the same effect. As to the charge, that the Catholics hold it lawful to kill any sovereign or private person, excommunicated by tlie l'ope, hear what has been distinctly, said, bv Pope Pius VI. " We too, consider an attempt bi. toe " life of Kings and Princes, under the' pretext of " religion, as an horrid and detestable offence." The notion, that the Catholics suppose the rite of absolution to be effectual without the aid of sincere repentance, is most clearly refuted by Sir J. Hippisley, from a great variety ofthe highest Catholic authorities. It has been asserted that the actual injury indicted upon the Catholics by their present disabilities is trifling, and docs not warrant the pains taken to obtain their removal. This is surely a very limited view of the subject, and withal savours a little of the arrogant. It is true, that a few only among the Catholics can be injured by mere loss of emolument, in consequence of their exclusion from high plates of trust aud distinction. Tbe injury is of another kind, which, indicted upon one man, af- fects the honour aud pride of the whole order to which lie belongs. No one should presume to measure the depth and extent of that punishment, wliica comes in the snape of insult, contempt, and degradation. It is confined in the heart, to break forth only in a bound- less and terrible retaliation. It is but too probable, that feelings of this kind are mingled with the daily thoughts of a great portion of the Irish people. For their religion is niade a subject of mockery and injustice, and the. peasantry starve upona soil fertilized bythe blood of their fathers. Ne- ver was cool reflection more necessary to the nation than at this moment. We shou d not he misled into fits of boyish enthusiasm, by our brilliant lint useless little victories, which are scarcely remembered by our enemy in his calculation, and mighty plans of conquest. Enthusiasm, or fine, transient feelings of patriotism, and so forth, are but little to be depended upon, or our experience goes for nothing.' We must have something more sober, rational, and permanent. We know our enemy by this time, or our knowledge will come too late. A steady and indexible opposition to his attacks, can only be ex- pected from a people united among themselves; and who feel that they are bound together by one common, interest, which they are determined to preserve, or perish in the attempt. Our Navy alone saves us from the gripe of this tre- mendous foe, and do we vet delay the work of recon- ciliation? when we know that at this time, ho has more than 50 ships of the line, and soon will possess a suffici- ent number, to dispute the passage to onr own shores. The most vigilant and enterprising of onr Naval Com- manders have proved the insecurity of the Blockading System. A concerted plan, a bold rush from the ports of France and Holland, ( a daring manoeuvre congenial with this man's mind,) might join his squad- rons into a protecting fleet for his flotilla, and tbe lis'; of subjugation would then depeud upon the uncertain issue of one great battle. Nay, in the confusion of such a moment, we might not be able to collect a suf- ficient number of ships to stop his progress for an hour. If be can get possession of the Southern Penin- sula, which it is probable he can do, whenever his po- licy may prompt him to the necessary exertions, his attempt upon Ireland would be abundantly more easy than upon our own coast, for, during a particular period of the year, the very winds which would waft liis fleets to the shores of that hapless country, would blow ours from their intercepting stations. Do we then await the roaring of his camion to awaken us to reflection, or do we expect that the awful sound will hush to peace and forgiveness tlie animosities and discontents of the Irish Nation ? We will grant no more concessions to the Catholics because " it will look like fear." Let us cease to be ridiculous and romantic ; these are not times for chi- valric sentiment. The best, policy, I humbly coi- ceive, is the most liberal and manly. Give the Ca- tholics all they ask for, because justice as well as expe- diency requires it, and let them account for our conduct as they please. To prove any evil that can arise from this now necessary measure, is impossible. Anil to lie alarmed at the idea of a Catholic Master- G eneral of the Ordnance, or Keeper of the Seal, is to return to tiiu days of our cliil hood, when hobgoblins were wont to start from the curtains to disturb our youthful slumbers, PHILANDER.

THE following arc the bulletins issued from Wind- sor Castle, of his Majesty's health, since our last: March 24.— The King lias been a little better these last two days. March 26.— His Majesty is going on favorably. March 28.— His Majesty goes on well. His Majesty has now reigned longer than any Mon- arch whoever sat on the throne of England, with the single exception of Henry III. who reigned 56 years and 29 days.— King Edward III. reigned 50 years 4 months and 27 days.— George III. has now reigned 50 years aud upwards of five months. It was not on the 5th that Massena broke up, but on the 6th, at ten at night, and by six the next morn- ing Lird Wellington began his pursuit. His Lordship entered Santarcm at three in the afternoon ofthe same day. *' He took eighteen pieces of heavy cannon there. Pushing on his advanced guard to Golegani, our troops had a smart skirmish with the French troops, and some prisoners were made. The cntmy had broken down the bridge there. On the 9th our advanced guard entered Thomar. The direction of the march of the principal French column was by Thomar and Leyria; our march by Thoinar would, it was thought, cut them off from the Ztzcre. A battle was considered as nt hand. The above intelli- gence was brought by Sir J. Yorkc. A letter from Commissary Pipon, attached to one of our brigades, dated Rio Mayor, on the 9th, repeats the assertion made iu other letters, ofMasseua having been foiled in the attempt to push one of his columns overtheZezerc— and adds, that one division of the British army had been ordered to march on Leyria, whilst Lord Wellington, with the main body, took the direction of Thomar. Another victory, we trust, has ere this been gained over the French near Cadiz, though it Cannot be ex- pected to be so brilliant a one as that which has just teen atchicvcd by our troops. Another expedition, composed entirely of Spaniards, under General Blake, erosssd the Sauti Petri from the Isla on the 9th, aud inarched to Chiclana, whither Victor had retreat- od after his defeat at Barrosa. The enemy had been brought to action, for on the 10th, about noon, the firing was distinctly heard by our cruizers. The Spaniards are understood to have been much more numerous than Victor's army. Should the latter be disposed of, the French troops on the coast opposite Cadiz will, in all probability, make au immediate M treat to Sev ille, thus raising the siege of Cadiz. Iu the House of Commons on Tuesday, the Chan- cellor ofthe Exchequer gave notice, that on Thursday he would move that the Thanks of the House be given to General Graham, and the Officers and Soldiers muter his command, for their late gallant conduct at Cadiz, ( Loud cries of hear !) Dutch papers to the 26th have been received, an- nouncing that Bonaparte's Empress had been safely de- livered of a son. This event happened on the 20th, at nine in the morning. It was immediately announced by the telegraph to ail parts of France, and was cele- brated by lirincs and illuminations. The Theatres were opened gratis, and largesses'bestowed upon the Parisian populace. Bonaparte has extended his burning system to let- ters. All letters, whether coming from,' or going to, England, have been ordered to be burnt, together with the contents. In one of the last Paris papers it is stated, that " fhe Military Commission at Dijon condemned, on thi 6th inst. to si* years imprisonment i » f irons, three Kngjisjuajspnei- s of w ar, Captains of Me Navy, who escaped from tlie'depot at Auxonne." His Majesty the King of Sw eden will embark this day at Yarmouth, oil board the Horatio frigate, Lord George Stewart, for the Baltic. Lord Palmer5ton was elected yesterday, by a con- siderable majority, to be one of the Members of Par- liament for the University of Cambridge. To the applications made yesterday to the Board of Trade for Baltic licences, the answer was, that they would be issued in two days. BO- XERS.— Molincaux lias met with an adversary in tiie person ofthe Lancashire man, produced by Greg- son. ' Die match is for 200 guineas, 20 forfeit— the money to be made ^ ood on the 16th of April, and the tattle" to be fought ou the 7 th of May. Betting 6 to 4 on Molinenx. SATURDAY, MARCH 30. On the 15th- inst; the Rev. Richard Wilbraham Ford, A. M. was instituted to the rectory of Little RJssington, in this county, by the Lord Bishop of this diocese, at Winchester, oil the presentation of the Loril Chancellor. On Saturday last, the Rev. Vanghan Thomas, B. D. • was instituted by commission, to the rectory of Dunts- liorne Rous, alias Militis, iu this diocese, on the pre- sentation ofthe President and Scholars of Corpus Christi College, in Oxford. The Chancellor of this diocese has appointed the Rev. John Dinioek, curate of Stonehouse, a surro- gate for granting marriage licences. The Rev. H. Barry Domville is instituted to the rrctory of Leigh, Worcestershire, on the presentation of the Right Hon. Lord Somcrs, vacant by the death of the Rev. Dr. Nash. Monday was married, at Cheltenham, Dr. Wilson Phillip, physician, of Worcester, to Miss Mary Dom- • vfle, sixth daughter of the late Charles Domvile, Esq. of Santiy, iu the county of Dublin. A few days since was married, at Alvington, in this county, Mr. Bombsted, of London, to Miss Clarkson, of the former placc. Last week died, after a long and painful illness, Mr. E. P. Haviland, of Winstone. On Saturday last died, in the 70th year of his age, Thos. Partridge, E^ q. of Hillsley, in this county, At a meeting of the Bailiffs and Burgesses of Tewkesbury, on Tuesday last, H. W. Harris, Esq. was nominated to the office of Chamberlain of that borough, vacant by the decease of the late Omwell Lloyd', Geilt. Sir M. M. Lopes, Bart, ( the patron,) R. Franco, ami A. Ludlow, Esqrs. were last v.- cck chosen bur- gesses ofthe ancient lio. rongh of Westbury. Yesterday, about one o'clock, a fire was discovered in the drying- room of Mr. Webb, bacon and cheese- factor, in Eastgate- street, in this city, which, we arc- happy to say was in a short time got under by the ex- ertions of the neighbourhood, aided by the speedy ar- rival of the engines. The accident was occasioned by the over- heating of a stove while a quantity of bacon was drying, of which 30 sides were partially de- stroyed, and considerable injury done to the building. Had this accident happened in the night, the consc- qacnccs might have been dreadful, from the conti- guity of the New Inn, which i « principally built with timber, and closely surrounded by houses ot'a similar description.— The property was insured. A not took place ill Bristol market on Satnrday tnorning, in consequence of fresh butter having advan- ced lo 2s. 6d. per lb. A party of workmen and col- liers forcibly seized all the butter, sold it at a price fix- ed bv themselves, and returned the money to the owners. Six of the most active of the rioters were tl.- kitt into cuftody and lodged in the Bridewell. On Wednesday last, the body of Mr. James White, ( unfortunately drowned in the Severn on his return home from our market on the 2d inst.) was picked up at Stone- bench, a short distance from this city, with his property all safe. An inquest was next day held at the Ship, in Maisemore, and a verdict given of ac- cidental death. Oo cutting off his boots, one of his legs was found very much injured, supposed from the blow lie received by his horse striking against the wall of the bridge when he fell over. On Saturday last, between eight and nine o'clock in the evening, as Mr. Henry Carter, ofPutloe, in the parish of Standish, was returning home from this city on horseback, lie was stopped, about three quar- ters of a mile from the Southgate- tuiupike, by two footpads, armed with pistols, who, under a threat of blow ing his brains out if he did not dismount and de- liver his money, robbed him of a few shillings, and two plated table spoons. They rifled his pockets; but he hud in the mean time thoprecaution to secrete five one- guinea- bills. After they had secured their booty, they desired Mr. Carter to proceed onwards, for that if he attempted to return, or give any alarm, they would shoot him. The one man appeared about five feet ten, and the other about five feet two ; they were dressed in dark clothes, aud the tallest wore panta- loons and shoes. As Mr. Prieharil, of Beachlcv Passage- house, was returning home from Chepstow, on Monday se'nnight, he fell into a quarry, on Tut'o hill, and was not dis- covered until next morning, when he was found very dangerously hurt. We understand that the East Worcester regiment of local militia is to assemble at Evesham on the 10th of May, for 14 days permanent duty. At a meeting of Lieutenancy of Herefordshire, on Thursday, it was determined the local militias of that county should assemble as follows:— The Archenfiehl, 4 th of May; First Herefordshire, 21st of May ; and the two battalions of north local, the first at Leo- minster, and the second at Hereford, ou tiie 6th of June, each for sixteen days, including arriving at aud departure from head- quarters. Thursday night, about ten o'clock, an alarming fire broke out at the distillery of Messrs. Michael Castle and Co. in Cheese- fane, Bristol. The flames were first seen to issue from the sheds and corn- lofts, anil several times the skirts aud rooting of the distil- lery were on fire; but by the very prompt exertions of the neighbours, together with detachments of the militia regiments in the garrison, and volunteer corps, the devouring element was at length subdued, with the loss of only the out- houses, counting- house, pig- gery, . Sec.; and the damage sustained was trivial, iu comparison of what seemed inevitable » vhen the tire first broke out. The premises were insured. Last week a writ of inquiry was executed at the George Inn, in Cheltenham, wherein John Sailer, Esq. was plaintiff, and George Collins, defendant, for the value of a horse which the plaintiff had agreed to sell for 51. 18s. but which th* defendant thought pro- per to take away without paying for ; when the Jury, under the direction of R. Hughes, Esq. as Deputy Sheriff, in consequence of the length of time since the transaction, gave a verdict for plaintiff.— Damages 101. with costs. Mr. Yeates, attorney for the plaintiff, Worcester Assizes arc fixed for Tuesday next. On Saturday last, William Townley w as executed, at the drop ill front of the county gaol, agreeably to his sentence at our late assizes, for burglary. He was a native of Winchcomb; aud, at the age of 29, ex- hibited a remarkable instance to what extent human depravity may be carried. In 1799 he was, w ith an elder brother, convicted of a similar crime, and sen- tenced to two years' imprisonment. He had not long regained his liberty, when he was brought a second time to the gaol, for a capital offence, found guilty, ami sentenced to be transported for seven years, which period he served on board the hulks at Wool- whicli. Fiom thence lie was only dischaiged on the 26th of July last; and, on the 26th of October, he was a third time committed, charged with the crime for which he has now suffereji. In the last interval, hi1 had entered as a substitute iu the Worcester mili- tia, for a bounty of 49 guineas, ten of which he had received, soon squandered the money, and immedi- ately afterwards perpetrated his last offence. His behaviour prior and subsequent to his condemnation, exhibited an extraordinary degree of insensibility and hardihood. Instead of showing any contrition or repentance for such a series of crimes, comprised in so short a life, or making any preparation for futurity, his mind seemed entirely occupied by schemes for escaping from prison; aud some futile attempts of this kind were made but a very short time before he suffered. He persisted iu declaring, that the wit- nesses had sworn falsely against him, till within a short time of his execution; when, just before he had re- ceived the sacrament, he admitted his full share in the crime for which his life became forfeited.. He was turned off a few minutes before two o'clock, iu presence of a vast concourse of people, and apparent- ly experienced no protracted struggle or suffering. . At Hereford assizes Mary and Thomas Watkins, ( mother and soil,) for the murder of Mrs. Joan Gwillim, at Cloddock, were convicted and received sentence of death ; and on Saturday, Thos. Watkins was executed ill front of the county goal. He could neither read nor write, and was totally unacquainted with the duties of religion. From bis fate may be inferred how far the arguments of those men wljo maintain the necessity of keeping the poor in a state of unlettered ignorance are founded on reason, jus- tice, or humanity. The morning hesuffered, he fully confessed himself the perpetrator of the murder. His mother is respited till the 15th of April, in conse- quence of her son's repeated asseverations of her inno- cence.— Sarah Williams, alias Read, ythowas ad- mitted an evidence, and the only one, stated, that Mary Watkins held the Candle, whilst her son gave Mrs. Gwillim very violent blows with a fire- brand from the hearth.

DOWNING- STRBET, MARCH 25. DISPATCHES, of which tin- following arc copies, were last night received at the Earl of Liver- pool's Office, addressed to liis Lordship l> v Lieuten- ant General Graham, dated Isla d « Leon, 6th and 10th of March, 1811. 1 Ula de I. em, March 6, 1811. MY LORD,— Captain Hope, my first Aid- de- Camp, w ill have the honour of delivering this dispatch to in- form yonr Lordship of the glorious issue of an action fought yesterday hy the division under nty command against the ariiiv commanded by Marslial Victor, composed of the two divisions Rutin aud Laval. The circumstances were such as compelled me to attack this very superior force. In order as well to explain to your Lordship the circumstances of peculiar disadvantage under which the action was begun, as to justify myself from the imputation of rashness in the attempt, I must state to your Lordship that the allied army, after a night match of 10 hours from the camp near Veger, arrived in the morning » f the 5tli, on the law ridge of Barrosa, about four - miles to the south- ward of the mouth of the Santi Petri river. This height extends inland about a mile and a half, con- tinuing 011 the north the extensive heathy plain of Chiclaua. A great pine forest skirts the plain, and circles round the height at some distance, terminating down to Santi Petri; tiie intermediate space lK- 1wecn the north side of the height and the forest being un- even and broken. A well conducted and successful attack on the rear of the enemy's lines near Santi 1' etri, by the Van- guard of tiie Spanish army, under Brigadier General la Drazabel, Imving'opetied the eonnuunicatiun with tilt' Isia de Leon, I rurvived General la Penas's di- rections to mote down from tiie position of . Barrosa to that of the Torre de IVrmesa, aliotit half way to tlieS. inti Petri River, ill order to secure the commu nication across the river, over which a bridge hatl been lately established. This latter position occupies a narrow " woody ridge, the right on the sea cliff, the left falling down to ( hit Almanza Creek oil the edge of the marsh. A hard sandy beach gives an easy com- munication between the western points of these two positions. My division being halted on the eastern slope of the Barrosa height, was marched about twelve o'clock through the wood towards the Bermesa ( cavalry pa- trols having previously been sent towards Chiclana, without meeting with the enemy.) On the march I received notice that the enemy had appeared in force on the plain, anil was advancing towards the heights of Barrosa. As I considered that position as the key of that of Santi Petri, I immediately countermarched in order to support the troops left tor its defence, and the alacrity with which this manoeuvre was executed served as a favourable omen. It was, however, im- possible in such intricate aiid diffn alt ground to pre- serve order in the columns, and there never was time to restore it entirely. But before we could get ourselves quite disen- tangled from the wood, the troops on the Barrosa hill were seen returning from it, while the enemy's left wing was rapidly ascending. At the same time his right wing stood on the plain, on the edge of the wood, within cannon shot. A retreat in the face. of such an enemy, already within reach of the easy com- munication by tlie sea beach, must have involved the whole alli- d army iu all the danger of being attacked during the unavoidable confusion of the different corps arriving on the narrow ridge of Bernicsa nearly at the same time. Trusting to the known heroism of British troops, regardless of the numbers aud position of tlieir enemy, an immediate attack was determined on. Major Duncan soon opened a powerful battery of ten gums in the centre. Brigadier General Dilkes, with the • brigade of Onnrtfi>, T- i< ni.- t ol. Hi.~ n.- V < •• 1 11*, vftth) flank battalion, Lieut.- Col Norton's two companies of the second rifle corps, and Major Aclieson with a part of the 67th foot ( separated from the regiment in the wood) formed on the right. Colonel Wheatly's brigade, with three companies of the Coldstream Guards, under Licut.- Col. Jackson, ( separated likewise fiom his battalion in the wood,) and Licut.- Col. Barnard's flank battalion formed ou the left. As soon as tlie infantry were thus hastily got to- gether, the guns advanced to a more favourable posi- tion, antl kept up a most destructive fire. The right wing proceeded to the attack of General Rufm's division on the hill, while Lieut.- Col. Bar- nard's battalion, and Lieut- Col. Buslie's detachment of the COth Portuguese were warmly engaged with the enemy's tirailleurs on our left. General Laval's division, notwithstanding the havoc made by Major Duncan's battery, continued to advance iu very imposing masses, opening his fire of musketry, and was only checked by that of the left wing. The left w ing now advanced firing; a most determined charge hy the three companies of Guards, and tlw? 87th regiment, supported by all the remainder of tiie wing, decided the defeat of General Laval's division. The eagle of the 8th regiment of light infantry, which suffered immensely, antl a howitzer, rewarded this charge, anil remained in possession of Major Gongli, of the 87th regiment. These attacks wire zealously supported by Col. Belson with the 28th regiment, and Lieut.- Col. Prcvost with a part of the 67th. A reserve formed beyond the narrow valley, across which the enemy was closely pursued, next shared the same fate, and was routed by the same means. Mtanwilc the right wing was not less successful: the enemy, confident of success, met General Dilkes on the ascent of the hill, and the contest was san- guinary ; but the undaunted perseverance of the brigade of guards, of Licut.- Col. Browne's battalion, and of Lieut.- Col. Noicott's and Major Acheaon's detachment, overcame every obstacle, and General Rutin's division was driveu from the heights in con- fusion, leaving two pieces of cannon. No expressions of mine could do justice to the conduct of tiie troops throughout. Nothing less than the almost unparalleled exertions of every officer, the iuviucible bravery of every soldier, and the most determined devotion to the honor of his Majesty's arms in all, could have achieved this brilliant success, agaiust such a formidable enemy, so posted. In less than au hour and a half from the commence- ment of tlie action, the enemy was iu full retreat. The retiring divisions met, halted, and seemed inclin- ed to form; a new and more advanced position of our artillery quickly dispersed theut. The exhausted state of the troops made pursuit im- possible. A position was taken on the eastern side of the hil!; auid we were strengthened til; our light by the return of tiie two Spanish battalions that had been attached before to my division, but which I had It ft on the hill, and which had been ordered to retire. These battalions ( Walloon guards and Ciudad real) made every effort to come back in time when it was known that we were engaged. I understand, too, from Gen. Whittingliam, that vuth three squadrons of cavalry he kept ill check a corps of infantry and cavalry that attempted, to turn the Barrosa height by the sea. One squadron of the jf,| Hussars, King's German legion, under Captain Buselte, and directed hy Lieut.- Col. Ponsonby ( both Ija'l been attached to the Spanish cavalry) joined iu time to make a brilliant and most successful charge against a squadron of French dragoons, which was e itirely routed. An eagle, six pieces of cannon, the Gen, of Division, Rwfiu, and the GCH oi Brigade, Rossean, wounded aud taken; the Chief of the Staff, Gen. P. ellegrade, an Aitl- de- camp of Marshal Victor, and the Col. of the 8th regiment, with many other officers killed, and se- veral wounded and taken prisoners: tile field cover- ed with the dead bodies and arms of the enemy, attest that my confidence in this division was nobly repaid. Where all have so distinguished themselves, it is scarcely possible to discriminate any as the most de- serving of praise. Your Lordship will, however, ob- serve how gloriously the Brigade of Guards, under Brigadier- General Dilkes, with the Commanders of the BJlttalioiis Lieut.- Col. the Hon. C. Onslow and Lieut.- Col. Sebright, ( wounded), as well as the three separated companies under Lieut.- Col. Jackson, main- tained the high character of his Majesty's Household Troops. Lieut.- Col. Browne, with his Flank Batta- lion, Lieut.- Col. Norcott, aud Major Acheson, de- serve equal praise. And I must equally recommend to your Lordship's notice Col. Whcatly, with Col. Belson, Licut.- Col. Prcvost, and Major ( rough, and the officers of the respective corps composing his brigade. The animated charges of the 87th regiment were most conspicuous; Lieut.- Col. Barnard ( twice wound- ed), and the officers of his flank battalion, executed the duty ofskiiaiishiiigiu advance with the enemy in a masterly manner, and were ably seconded by Lieut.- Col. Bushe . if the 20th Portuguese, who, likewise twice wounded, fell into the enemy's hands, but was afterwards rescued. The detachment of this Portu- guese regiment behaved admirably throughout the w hole affair. I owe too much to Major Duncan, and the officers and corps of the Royal Artillery, not to mention them in terms of the highest approbation ; never was artille- ry better served. The assistance I received from the unwearied exer- tions of Lieut.- Col. Macdonald, and the officers of the Adjutant General's department ; of Licut.- Col. the Hon. C. Cathcart, and tile officers of the Quarter Master General's department; of Captain Birch and Captain Nicholas, and the officers of the Royal Engi- neers ; of Captain Hope, and ihe officers of my perso- nal stall', ( all animating by their example,) will ever he most gratefully remembered. Our loss lias been severe; as soon as it can be ascertained by tlic proper return, I shall have the honour of transmitting it. But much as it is to he lamented, I trust it wilj be con- sidered as a necessary sacrifice, for the safety fit' the whole allied army. Having remained some hours on the Barrosa Heights, w ithout being able to procure any supplies for the ex- hausted troops, the commissariat limits having been dispersed ou the enemy's first altack of the hill, I left Major Ross with the detachment of the 3rd battalion of the 95th, and withdrew the rest of tf^ e division, which crossed the Sauti Petri river carjy the next morning. I cannot conclude this dispatch without earnestly recommending to his Majesty's gracious notice tor promotion, Brevet Lieutenant- Colonel Browne, Ma- jor of the 28th foot, Brevet Lieutenant- Colonel Nor- cott, Major of the 9. Vth, Major Duncan, Royal Ar- tillery, Major Gougli of the 87 th, Major tjie lion. E. Achesou of the 67th, and Captain Birch of the Ro_\ al Engineers, all in the command of corps or detach- incuts on this memorable scryicc; and I confidently trust that the bearer of this dispatch, Captain Hope, ( to whom I refer your Lordship for further details,) will be promoted, on being permitted to lay the eagle at his Majesty's feet. I have the honour to be, & c. THOMAS GRAHAM, Licuteiiant- Gencral, P. S. I beg leave to add, that two Spanish officers, Captains Miranda anil Naughton, attached to nty staff, behaved with the utmost intrepidity. T. G. Made Leon, March 10, 1811. MY Lonn,— I have the honour to transmit to your Lordship the return of tlie killed and wounded in the action of the 5th instant, and I have the satisfaction to add that the wounded in general are doing well. By the liest accounts that can be collected from the wounded French officers, the enemy had aboVt 8( « K) men engaged, ' l'tieiv loss by reports from Chiclana in killed, wounded, and prisoners, is supposed to amount to ." 000; I have no doubt of its being very great. I transmit too a return of the. ordnance In our pos- session, and also the most accurate note that can be obtained of prisoners, most of whom are wounded. They are so dispersed in different hospital-, that an exact return has nut yet been obtained. I have the honour to be, < fcc. THOMAS GRAHAM, Lieutenant- General. P. S. Detachmenjtstf cay airy aud infantry have been daily employed in carrying off the wounded, and bury- ing the dead, till the evening of the tith instaut, hy which time all the enemy's wounded that could be found among the brushwood aud heath were brought in.

Dep. Adj.- Gen. [ A supplement to the Gazette Extraordinary was published 011 Monday night, containing dispatches from Rcar- Adra. Keats, who it had been arranged, should make an attack ou the French batteries in Ca- diz bay, while Gen. Graham was taking their army in the rear. The naval attack owing to the unfavourable . state of the weather, could not be executed until the tith, when it was carried into effect with all the bra- very aud coolness of British seamen. All the batte- ries oil the east side of the Bay from Rota to St. Ma- ry's, with the exception of Fort Catalina, were car- ried by storm, the guns spiked, and the works des- troyed. Our loss was 3 killed and 13 wounded.] It cannot lie a matter of surprise that Bonaparte should decree against Ihe use of the dead languages. For if the language of the dead could be heard, it would a tale unfold, that would harrow up his jguilty soul. The following midshipmen, prisoners of war, made their vscape from the French coast in a small boat, and landed at Harwich on Saturday:— Mr. Siveedy, of his Majesty's ship Bouv'eric; Mr. Naton, of the Calcutta; Mr. Robinson, of the Ruby; Mr. May, of the Jackgll; and Mr. Holder, of the Spencer. They liavo been in prison from three to seven years. At York assizes, James Whitehead, for attempting to murder his sweetheart, being arraigned, pleaded guilty, which plea lie persisted iu for a considerable time ; but by the adv ice of the court, and the repeat- ed entreaties of liis counsel aud friends, he reluctant- ly withdrew his pita, ami pleaded not guilty.— The prisoner, who was a good- looking young man, seemed greatly affected during his trial. The prosecutrix had lived servant with Mr. Blown, a farm. at HsjjJsn, ij whose, service tl* » prisoner also was. 1 lie young it-, p bad paid his addresses to the prosecutrix, but she'left tilt; service of Mr. Brown, and shewed considerable shyness and reserve to the prisoner, which, in an irritable mind, had pro- bably led to tlie attack of which lie was guilty. Ann OcMeton, the prosecutrix, when she appeared to give her evidence, was so agitated, that it was with great difficulty she could proceed. She is about 20 years of age, and a handsome young woman. The following is tlie substance of what she stated, respect- ing the attempt made by the prisoner;.— On the evening of the 4th of September last, she went with her aunt, Jane Ocklcton, to milk in a field about half a mile from Aldborongh; 011 their way thither they were met by the prisoner, who said to her, " How do you do, Nancy?" She answered— " Very well, thank you." The prisoner then stopt, and she said, " If you mean to go w itli us, I w ill return home." The prisoner replied, " No; I do not want to go with you;" and then turned apd walked towards the town, and the wijtiiess and her aunt went forward; they were employed about a quarter of ail hour iu milking, On tlicir return tyomc, at a slioit distance from /; 1 close, they met tlie prisoner, who spake to Iter aunt, and desired her to lcaye lucr with him, as lie wished tp have some talk with lui, which her aunt declined; when the prisoner swore, and said he did not care fyr her, and, turning himself round stood before them, and said, uSf, op>." and dyew a knife from his pocket and opened if, , ou whjcj^ witness and hc- r aunt set up a lo. tid cry, and yritness Jet fall the milk- pail. She then ran back two pr three yards, and was followed by the prisoner, who caught her in his amis, and tlirew her 011 the ground, he falling with her; he then cut her throat with a knife; and after being wounded in the neck, she wrested the knife from him, and threw it over the hedge— and while he was seeking the knife, supposing she had dropt it near the spot, she extricated liorselffrom him, and ran aw ay, the prisoner pursuing ( icr; and almost immediately met Isaac Ellaril, w# o took her under his protection. Isaac Ellard said, on die 4tl « September he met Aim Ockleton in the lane, and Junes Whitehead pursuing her. She exclaimed, " Save my life I" and witness shout .'! out, " Mv friend, what have you been doing:" To which the prisoner replied, " I do not mean to hurt you or any man or woman on the earth, but Ann Ockleton, and I mean to have her lite, if it be possible— give me your hand, for I shall be hanged for her, aud sp I will go the gallows, and be hanged like a dog."— Witness said, " No, my friend, I hope you have done nothing yet that vill hang you."— Prisoner said, " Yes, I have cut her throat, and if I had not lost the knife, I should | iave killed her upon the spot, and she would now have been a dead woman." During this . conversation, himself, the prisoner, and Ann Ockleton, were walk- ing towards Aldborough. The prisoner wished to shake bauds with her, which she refused. The Learned Judge, after recapitulating the evi- dence, said, it was possible the prisoner was much at- tached to the young woman, whom he suspected of a coldness towards him; and that under the influence of those feelings, he had worked himself into a vio- lent pbren^,' ui passion; but his Lordship observed, that the violence of passion would not justify au act that deliberately aimed at the life of a fellow- creature ; if it did, a door w ould be opened to all the excesses and crimes which persons under the impulse of passi- on might Ije induced to commit; and 110 evidence had been given to induce the jury to think that the pri- soner w as not in a sane state of mind at the time this act was perpetrated. The jury, without leaviug the box, found the prison- er guilty, but recommended him to mercy 011 account of his good character. The prisoner, 011 leaving the bar, said, " May Gild be the comfort of my pro- secutrix I" The prisoner wan coudeinued, but has since been reprieved. THE MONITEDP,.— T'nis faithful commentator of our British transactions, has, in the last number that reached lis, given the following additional specimen of its authenticity on these subjects:— "' l'o knotv the reduced situation of England, you have only to take a view of the ptesent state of her Capital. The distressed merchants, constrained to reduce the number of their draft- horses, now convey their merchandize on the foot pavement in 4rouettes [ wheelbarrows] so that, which used to be the prome- nade for ladies, is now become as ruinous and filthy as the streets. Soon after night- fall almost a total darkness prevails, from the inability of the inhabi- tants to pay the oil- tax fortheii lamps, which, like that 011 fenetres, or day- light, is become excessive. Scarcely a midnight orgie now enlivens their mansions of distinction I even Dovershire- hoase [ probabiv meant Devonshire] no longer shines with splendour,— and the sounds of the lute and harp have givpn way to the clangor of the watchmen's rattles, as alarm to the af- frighted housekeeper to gtiaid his property agaiust the nocturnal arts of masqoed depredators. All diamatic and harmonic taste is fled, — The only remaining Theatre Roval being deserted, is turned into a MaTson ( le Cheval—[ Riding House]— and Mesdames Brislinafon, [ lldlinu'ou] and Calalani, sing now at Sadler's Wells, the chief resort of entertainment for mateluts, anil the common haudycraftsmeu of the day I" MP. WINDHAM. ( From the Edinburgh Review, No. 3 J.) " The age which has witnessed the eclipse of the ancient splendour and independence of Europe, seems also to be that in which the heroic race of England is doomed to become extinct, and to perish. The mighty minds of Burke and Fox, and Pitt and Nelson, have been withdrawn iu our times, from the degraded scene of our affairs ; and almost the last star in that great constellation set at the death of Mr. Windham — a death which has deprived this country ofitsniost perfect model of a gentleman, and left friends and enemies to deplore that generous and romantic gallant- ry of feeling, which gave a certain chivalrous eleva- tion to all his views antl actions; those beautiful ac- complishments which embellished the whole society in which he lived,— that fine and graceful wit, which fascinated those who were most aware of its seductions,— that high- tempered honour and unsul- lied purity, which were never questioned even by the calumniating zealots of reform, and emerged un- spotted even from their mostrous alliance with the creatures of corruption."
