IHAVE Ihe pleasure to inform you, that the Lady, for whom you sent me the Stramonium herb to- bacco aod Oxymel, received such wonderful benefit from thcin as to surprise every one wliu knows her ; indeed, her case was so deplorable, that no one thought she could possi- blv get the belter of it. It was tli. ltessiug to see her: sleep- less nights, loss of flesh, appetite, and strength, constant wheezing, aud very fiequeut and violent fits of coughing; which shattered her almost to pieces, attended with extreme difficulty to expectorate, and the quantity she raised, in the course of a day and night, was at least a quarter of a pint; this weakened and wasted her so much, that she be- came unable to go up stairs, and scarcely able to walk across the room, without assistance. She had the advice of very eminent medical men ; took a vast quantity of medicine ; change of air; warm b. ilbs; aud tried various nostrums, recommended to her; but without finding any real benefit fiom them. She is now free trom cough ; sleeps well ; gootl appetite ; and can walk a utile or two in a morning without any inconvenience or fatigue whatever. She found bent tit trom smoaking the first pipe ; since which she bas regularly sinoaked a pipe every evening, about an hour before bed- time, und 1 attribute her recovery entirely to the Stramoni- um iierb tobacco, and the oxymel accompanying it.

N. B. > 0 HALF PINTS MADE. London, March 30Ih, 1811. LONDON. FRIDAY, APRIL 19. Yesterday a meeting of the Portuguese residing in London was held at the Citv of London Tavern, to consider the best means of affording relief to ti e un- fortunate inhabitants in the districts of Portugal, that have so cruelly suffered iwider the invasion of t;, e French and the atrocities committed hy them in thoir retreat: A letter from the Portuguese Ambassador was read, apologizing for his absence in consequence of indisposition, and requesting that the meeting might be adjourned on the ground that he had received divers applications from English gentlemen since the advertisement for convening a meeting of Portu- guese only, lo make life meeting general, and more beneficial to the persons whose interest they had in view. The following resolution was then adopted: That R. Ruciman, Esq. do wait onThomas Whitmore, Esq. requesting him lo tike the direction of this mea- sure, in order lhat the general anxiety expressed by all ranks of people to contribute to this most desirable ' object, be rendered as efficacious as possible. More Portuguese papers have arrived, but their con- tents are rather of a prospective than retrospective character. It is said that General Beresford, who re- mained at Elvas, was on the Gth instant lo proceed to Eiidajos, where the French, according to the last dis- patches from Mr. Stuart, were collecting in strength. Tbe breach in the walls, which was made during the siege, and which was 30 yards wide, we understand, had been repaired. It is said, that in the course of the present year, no French troops have entered by the Pyrer. can frontier, excepting about 2,000 men accom- panying a convoy, or escort, which had but just reached Madrid. The Colonel of the regiment of Navarre, made prisoner at Olveaza, who is son of the Marquis FROM THE LONDON GAZETTE. Downing- Stre.- t, April l;.) A Dispatch, of which the following is a copy, was ou the eveumg of the 17th inst. received at Lord Liver pool's office, addressed to bis Lordship by Lieut. Gen discount Wellington, dated Marmoleiro, April 2. MY LORD— Tiie allied army were collected to the neigh- bourhood and iii front of Celorico on the ifrthof March, with a view to dislodge the enemy from the position v liic. li they had taken upon Guarda, which they still occupied iu force, and of which they apparently intended to retain possession. On that day a pitrole of light infantry from Major- General Al- xander Campbell's division, commanded bj the Hon Col. Ramsay, had suinc success against a de- tachment of the enemy at Avelaus; and a patitilc of the light cavalry, w ith a detachment of the 95th, with which was Major General Slade, obliged the enemy to retire from r ." - „. l Fraxedas; both took many prisoners; and lam concerned to add, tbat Brigade Major StcwaTt, of the 95tli, w as killed with the last. Oil the morning of the SQtli the 3d, 6th, and light divisi- ons, and the Ititli light dragoons and hussars, under the command of Major- General 1' icton, Major- Geneial Alex. Campbell, and Major- General Sir William Erskine, moved upon Guards), in five columns, which w ere supported by the 5th division in the valley of tlie Mo lid ego, aud by the Ist and 7th from Celorico. And the Militia under Gill. Trant and Col Wilson, covered the movement at Alverca against any attempt that might have bceu made 011 that sid^ to disturb it. The enemy abandoned the position of Gnarila without firing a shot, and retired upon Sabugal on the Coa. They were followed by oiir cavalry, who took some prisoners from them. On Ihe 30th Sir William Erskine, with the cavalry and rear guard of the ad corps, had inarched for the of Tosas, was confined in the Retiro, having refused to swear fealty to Joseph. It is slated that the escort, which was conducting the French prisoners from 01- venza, had been attacked near Coca by the skirmishing party under Borbon, and all of them had been set at liberty. This intelligence is said to be official. The merciless French are stated to have continued their barbarous excesses until they were fairly driven across the Coa. I11 passing through a village between Cclorico and Guarda, a horrible sight presented itself to the ad- vance of the allied army, composed of Brit sh and Portuguese light troops. Numbers of the inhabitants, without distinction of age or sex, were found murdered in the streets, and others expiring under their wounds, wilh loss of ears and noses. This shocking spectacle raised the indignation of the allied troops, particular! ) the Portuguese, to the highest pitch, and they shortly bad an opportunity of makinga most severe retaliation. By the premature destruction of a bridge over which the enemy had lo pass in their retreat, about 800 of their troops were cut off, nearly the whole of which were killed, the advance of the allies refusing to give any quarter. Lieutenant Burke, of the 4Slh regiment, who was reported to have deserted to tbe enemy, but who, iu reality, wis taken by a French picquct of cavalry, which surprised him as he was taking a ride, in com pany of tlie Major of his regiment— is returned to the British army. He was separated from the Major, by having rode to the top of oue of those high hills wilh which Portugal so abounds, and ordered uot to express a word There was no message sent to the Commander- in- Chief, as reported ; all the accounts Lord Wellington had, was a French prisoner having seen him at Massena's quarters. He took advantage of the confusion of the French army 011 their retreat, and returned the first moment possible. Letters of a recent dale announce that Almeida has fallen into our power. The Adelaide French cartel from Morlaix arrived at Dartmouth on the 14th instant. By a French mer- chant who arrived in her, it is staled, that before he left France an account had been received of the taking of two French frigates in the Mediterranean, after a desperate action, in which both their Captains were killed, and a great many officers and men. The Ade- laide cartel sailed again on the i Gth for Morlaix. Another merchant of the name of Coleman, has been arrested at Hamburgh and sent to Paris. We are told also, that one merchant has been shot. Some disputes bad arisen between Sweden and Prussia, aud il is pre- tended to be the general opinion, that the accession of Bernadotle to the throne of which he is appointed the heir, is absolutely necessary to restore that equipoise in the north, which had been destroyed by the preponder- ance of the 1< ussian authority. 1 Wereadetailed and authenticed stalementoft. be hor- rid and cruel conduct of the French during the lite campaign in Portugal to be translated, printed, and published iu the language of every country where the French either have penetrated, or are likely to pete- trate, by their arms or intrigues, the people might judge for themselves of the blessings which they are likely to derive from the presence of a race of warriors, so pure and simple in their manner; so tender and gentle in Iheir dispositions ; so dove- like. and inoffensive iu all their actions! A gentleman has just arrived from St. Domingo, who, as agent for General Petition, is prepared to make pro- posals to this country for the purpose of giving it all the advantage of the commerce of tbat island. M. Pclhion, in compliance with the wishes of the Govern- ment of Jamaica, has dismantled his fleet: while the marine of Christophe and Rigaud ( who commands in the interior) are staled to be in alliance with Bonaparte, while the third competitor for power, M. Petition, professes himself to be warmly attached to Great Britain. In Ihe night of the 13th of February, part of a moun- tain at the back of the city of Rio Janeiro fell down, in consequence of heavy rains, by which 30 houses were destroyed and part of Porto Rico, and other considerable damage done: 200 persons arc supposed to have lost their lives. Mr. Piuckney is now at Brighton, wailing for dis- patches from the United States before he sels sail for the western world. He neither entertains the intention, nor is there a chance, much less a probability of the resumption of his legatorial functions. He waits only to assist with his advice a young gentleman of the name of Smith, who is left Ctiarge ll'Affaircs, aud whose .. conduct mustbfc materially influenced by the contents of the next dispatches.

I have the honour to enclose the copy of a letter which I have received from Marshal Sir William Beresford, con- taining the terms of the capitulation of Campo Mayor ; and 1 have likewise the honour of enclosing his report of his first operation against the enemy, from which your lord- ship w ill observe that he lias got possession of that place again, and litis had considerable success against the ene- my's cavalry. This success would have been more complete, and would have fcceii attended w ith less loss, if the ardour of tbe 13th light dragoons and / Ih Portuguese regiment of cavalry iu the pursuit of the enemy, could have been kept within rea- sonable bounds Some of the men missing of hotli these regiments were made prisoneis 011 the bridge of Badnjoz. The enemy have likewise abandoned Albuquerque. I have received 110 accounts from Cadiz or from the north siuce I addressed your lordship on the 27th of March. I have the honour to be, & c. ( Signed) WELLINGTON f It is reported to- day, that Lord Wellington has ap- plied to the Cortes to have the military superintendance of the provinces of Gallicia and Estremadura confided to his care; and the I ortes, we are loid, have assented to this proposal, on learning that it was on that con- dition onty that , tie: allies would . cuter the territory of Spa ft for its . piriitfcction. Since the determination ! of the Cortes was made known, numerous remonstrances have been presented against this act of condescension under the. dangers of the country, and what will be the arrangement cannot yet be ascertained. The popttla tion of Gtillicia is upwards of a million; aud it is sup- posed, from the two provinces, 160,000 active and hardy recruits miglube easily procured. The most remarkable circumstance in the Gazette intelligence is the change nf direction which Massena, has given to his retreat. It appears that after making a shew of resistance at . Guardli, he left that place 011 the 29th, without firing a shot ; and in great con- fusion. No serious loss, however, seems to have resulted from that confusion, and the enemy, far from taking the direct road to Spain, has marched southward to Sabugal. . This movement lias given rise to a conjecture that it is the object of Massena to endeavour to place himself between Lord Wel lington and Lisbon. To do this, however, he must be possessed of supplies to enable him to subsist in a country, the resources of which bis army has already exhausted, and to believe such an operation practicable, is to suppose that all tbe accounts of the destitute state of the French army, though confirmed even by the Moniteur, have been false. Be may have received partial supplies, but not sufficient for such an under- taking. Private letters communicate some interesting par- ticulars respecting the march by the southern bank of the Mondego. Such was the rapidity of the advance of our troops that the Commissariat could not keep pace with them, and the army was at that time three days without bread. The troops in consequence began lo suffer ; but a judicious halt of a couple of days, anil the timely arrival of abundant supplies, restored them to their usual vigour and spirits, and the enemy were soon dislodged from their formidable position at Guarda. Some Portuguese papers have been received, but the events which they notice are neither new nor important. Marshal Bercsford reports, under date of Campo Mayor, March 26, that he had moved 011 the preceding morning from Arronches, and npou approaching Campo Mayor nad found the enemy's corps ( consisting of four regi- ments of cavalry, three battalions of infantry, and some horse artillery) drawn up 011 Ihe outside of Ihe town. Brigadier General Long being sent with the allied cavalry to turn the enemy's right, found an opportunity of ordering a charge to be made by two squadrons of the 13th light dragoons under Lieut. Col. Head, and two squadrons of Portuguese dragoons under Colonel Otway, supported by tbe remainder ofthe cavalry. Ily this charge tbe enemy's liorse were completely routed and chased by the four squad- rons nbovementioned into the town of Badajoz. A great number of the French were sabred, as were the gunners be- longing to the ] ti pieces of cannon that were taken upon the ro'd, but afterwards abandoned. The pursuit of tbe enemy's cavalry having led a great pro- portion ofthe allied dragoons to a distance of several miles before the infantry of Marshal Beresford's army could come up, the infantry availed themselves of the opportunity to retreat in solid column, and thus cft'ected their escape. The enemy's loss is estimated at not less than 5 or 600 men killed, wouuded, or prisoners ; great numbers of horses and mutes were taken, together with one howitzer and some ammunition waggons. Martial Beresford sneaks highly of the steadiness of Col. De Gray's brigade of heavy cavalry, and of the gallantry displayed by all the troops that were engaged. The enemy abandoned tlie town ofCampo Mayor without resistance, leaving there a considerable supply of corn and provisions and 8,000 rations of biscuit.

Extract from the intelligence received from C, Stewart, Esq, his Majesty's Minister iat Lisbon, dated April 6. Downing Street, April 17. Dispatches have beeii received this night by Marquis Wellesley, from Mr. Stewart, his Majesty's blinisterat Lis- bon, dated Lisbon, April ( i, stating; that- on the 28th nit. Gen. Baoelar, with Colonels Trant and Wilson, moved to- wards Piiihel and Avelos. The enemy's head- quarters were transmitted to Celorico; ' and the advanced guard iu the di- rection of Guardn were thrown forward to within half a league of that town. The enemy, who had placed Ihe greater part of their force towards Gtiarda, manifested a disposition to make a stand, and bad extended liis lines hy throwing his detachments towards Delmonre; he w as, liow- ever, compelled to aban- don lhat post on the 2ytli, aud went off in great confusion towards Coa, witli the loss of many stragglers and much baggage. A great part of his force had retired hi the direction of Sabugal. The British head quarters were at Muntelezo on the Ist of April, and the whole army occupicd the left hank of tbe Coa. The accounts from the North of Portugal state the return of Marshal Bessie res from Valladolid, and the consequent permission of the Militias of Tres- Montcs to return to their homes. Tlieeneiny in the South of Spain have withdrawn their force from the fort of Albuquerque, which had been in the possession of the Spaniards, and had concentrated their force near to Badajoz. The junction of the corps under General Ballasteros with ' that from Cadiz under General Zayzins, has been prevented by the arrival t- f Prince d'Aretnberg with a body of men nearly 4000 strong, in the Condada di Niabla, upon which Gen. Ballasteros retired upon Castillegos, and Gen. Zavzas reinibarked with his troops 011 the cgtli. Thursday, May 1. Tnursday, 9. Thursday, Id. Tue.- day, —— 21. Friday, May 3. Friday, 10. Friday, 17. Wednesday, 22. SATURDAY, APRIL 20. Corunna Gazettes of a late date have been received, which contain 1111 article, dated Salamanca, the 12th of March ; and it it could be relied on, it would indeed be of great importance : Bonaparte has 60,000 men oil the frontiers of Poland, under Davoust; and is to march 20,000 from the Confederation of tho Rhine, and 20,000 from the interior of France, to join them ; and Inese are to be farther reinforced bv an Austrian army of 200,000, making a total of 300,000 men. Wilh this force, the article proceeds to say, Bonaparte will attack Russia, Prussia, and perhaps the Porle. The consequence of this great undertaking must be obvious, lie must evacuate the Spanish Peninsula, or carry on the war there upon a very reduced scale. In the latter case, it adds, he would withdraw to the north of the Ebro. Government this morning, received a confirmation of the report of Marshal - Ney's having been sent to Palis under an arrest. Masseua charges him with the whole of Ihe disasters of tbe French army in Portugal. On Wednesday arrived at Portsmouth, the French frigates Bellone, Astrca, Minerva, and Venus; and They mention that King Joseph has given great disgust at Madrid by allowing public exhibitions on Fast Lays, and by the introduction of masquerades, at which Ihe Dignitaries of the Church have been turned into ridi- cule. French papers to the 11 th ifista/ i', have arrived, but they contain 110 i 11 fell i gpnee from the Peninsula, and indeed communicate nothing of any particular interest. An article from Swmemunde, of the 27fh ult. states the conflagration there of merchandize, chiefly cotton goods, estimated to be of the value of 2,000,000 francs. The garrison under arms, and the Prussian authorities, we are told, assisted at the spectacle, and a similar operation was lo take place in the ports of Pomerania. Bonaparte presided al a: Council of State 011 the 9th instant. •'• t' Plymouth, April 18.— Yesterday arrived here an officer of the 1- lth dragoons, from Lisbon, via Fal- mouth, in nine days : fijf Is come home ill from the great fatigue he has uhdprgone. His description of the horrid devastations of the French armies is similar to every olher account.- Ney is said to be under arrest; Massena is at Salamanca, after haying blown up the fortifications of Almeida, Ciudad Rodrigo, and Fort Conception. He has ttply kepi.' with him 45,000 men out of 100,000, tutll. yhich he entered Portugal. Lord Wellington was at Almeida on the 3d instant, and it was supposed would march with 16,000 men to the relief of Cadiz, leaving about 45,000 men, in two divisions, on the frontiers of Portugal. Badajoz is supposed by this lime to have received a garrison of 8,000 men. Marshal Beresford is driving all before him. Lieut. Burke, of the 45th, " Was tried and acquitted of desertion. Loison was a prisoner at Lisbon. The ship Uuiled States has arrived in ( he Downs from Philadelphia, and has brought papers of that place to the 17th, aud of New York to the 15th of March. By these we find lhat Mr. Weiner has been appointed Consul of the Republic to Pari% The non importation act of ihe 2d of March has excited so much animosity that the opinions of several eminent lawyers have been asked upon it, and they have declared it to be null and void, Vice- Admiral Sir James Sautnarez and suite left rown on Thursday at one o'clock, for Portsmouth, where he will again hoist his flag 011 board the Victory, and immediately proceed to the Baltic. The merchants interested in the trailp to ihat qu rter regard his de parture with great and general satisfaction. The stccount of the capture of two French frigates, breught from Morlaix, is believed at Ihe Admiralty. The zction ioolc place off Minorca. The frigates were those that lately escaped fcoin- Toulon. Dreadful Fire.— One of" the most lamentable and destructive fires, as far ai concerns human, life, that has happened for many years " ill this metropolis, broke out about about two o'clock this morning, at No. 167, Bishopsgate- street, in thcriiccupation of a porkman and sausage- maker, of the name of Goullee. The fire was first discovered by a young man, a cabinet- maker in the neighbourhood, who was up at work all night, and who immediately gave Ihe alarm, but it was some time be- fore the engines arrived, or water could be procured 111 sufficient quantity to . play 011 the premises with effect, lu this interval the destructive clement raged with such rapidity,- that th'e whoje of the wretched inmate* of Ibis itirfa. led dwelling,/ consisting of eight persons, the man, his wife; throe- children, and three servants, fell victims to the1 flames. Conjecture alone can now furnish us with the probable cause of this sad catastrophe. A servant had been employed late at night in preparing German sausages iu a copper, and it is supposed that when he retired to rest the flue of the copper had become overheated, and communicated to the timber Work of the house. After the arrival of the engines, and a supply of water had been procured, the flames were soon subdued, without extending, so as to produce material injury to any of the adjoining premises. soldiers to le disciplined and commanded by British officers, in the same manner as the Portuguese. Appli- cation on this head was first made to the Regency bv the Hon. Mr. Wellesley, but to which no satisfactory answer was returned: the Regency first proposing to consult with ihe Cortes before they approved or dis- approved the measure. The Cortes, according to our information, fully sanctioned the plan, and the result has been that some of the members of the Regency who withheld ther consent have either voluntarily resigned, or have been compelled to do so. In consequence of this new arrangement, we are told that Lord Wellington wili without delay raise two Spanish armies, one in Estra- madura and the other in Gallicia. Some of the Cadiz Sellers of the 5th, stale the actual return of General Zayes and his successful division to Cadiz prior to the ahovt date. No shells had been thrown into Cadiz since about the 26th of March, and all Ihe damage then done was the killing of a pig. By the Bulwark man of war from Cadiz, we have also received letters from Gibraltar to the 4th instant, which, we regret to state, are of an uupleasing nature. The gale which was so productive or injury to the shipping at Cadiz, has also proved fata! to vessels at Gibraltar,— The following'extract is most explicit 011 the subject: " For three or four days we have had a violent gale from the E'- ist. Several vessels have received considerable injury in the Bay. A transport and the Valencia packet came 011 shore at the bathing stage, and both are lost. The latter had a considerable quantity of dollars on board, which could t. ot be saved, as she went to pieces almost immediately. Five or six vessels went ashore near Algesiras." The following are extracts of letters posted up at Lloyd's this afternoon. G'ottahburgh, iQth April.— All tHe ships lying at Carl-, ham had got back their papers, and were al liberty to proceed, when an order came to put all Prussian vessels under ail em bargo there and at Ctu'lScrona, and even such as had loaded in Prussian ports. The reason for adopting such a measure was said to he 011 account of some Swedish ships, laden w ith colonial produce-, - having been put under sequesteration in Prussia. A gentleman arrived a few days ago from the former place, infoims us, that all vessels had again been released with - the - exception of those loaded with colonial produce— an order lias just come1, from Stockholm to ou/ Government and to the Custom. House, permitting the im- portation of salt in Swedish ships direct from England. Gattevhurgl, utfA April-— The ships and cargoes here, as well as as at Carlsham and olher Swedish ports, are still under sequestration, and nothing is likely to be dccided until the arrival of a British fleet in the Baltic. If we are to give credit to letters ofthe 19th March, received to- day from Petersburgh, the governments of France and Russia are on belter terms than we had reason to belieye they were or wish them to be. Some recent dispatches which had passed betweeu the two Courts it was thought had tended to heal the differences between them.— The Exchange on London in conse- quence had experienced a depression, the last accounts left the Exchange at 13}. Letters reached town to- day from France of the 19 th inst. It is slated, that the flight of Massena before the British army in Portugal had occasioned a considerable sensation in the French capital^ where more failures had recently occurred. The Mars man of war sailed from the Tagus on the 9th instant, with a convoy of 200 sail. She is arrived at Portsmouth, and the fleet is understood to be near at hand. The Mars, although three days later frotu the Tagus than any previous arrival, does not bring accounts of any Operations of the British army on the Banks ofthe Coa. It has transpired, however, and v e believe the fact, that Marshal Beresford bad crossed the Guadiana preparatory lo au attack on the Fret- ch forced near Badajoz. It is stated to- day that Heligoland is destined by Government for a military depot, and that all the ware- houses in that island are to be purchased for the use of the army.— It is considered that uothing could be more annoying to the enemy than a considerable British force so near the Continent, which would be ready to act, on • matters of enterprise or otherwise, on the shortest notice. It is stated from good authority, lhat tlte Acta; on frigate, which sailed a few days ago for the Cape of Good Hope and India, took out dispatches to the governments apprising them of the critical situation of affairs between he Britssh and American governments, and with instructions to act accordtn ly. Similar advices haVe been forwarded to our Commanders in the West Indies and at Halifax— A rupture with America seems to be the general opinion of all parties. A Loan of .€ 2,500,000.

At the General Quarter Sessions for this county, which ended early in the afternoon of yesterday, there wereottiy three prisoners for trial, one of whom was acquitted, and against t! ie others no bills we e found.

FAIRS.— At Worcester first spring fair, Ihere was a good supply of fat and lean cattle, sheep and lambs, which had a heavy sale at reduced prices. Of horses there were few that were good, and they brought high prices ; inferior ones were in no request.— At the last Gloccsfer fair, there was a good supply of cattle, but the sale was dull. Pigs were more in demand, and sheep maintained their late prices. Good horses sold high.— Al Hereford fair, on Weelnesday, store oxen were not numerous, and more buyers attending than has been usual at this mart, they went off readily at advanced prices; but fat cows were very dull of sale. Very few bags of hops were weighed, and the prices were ou the decline. There were but few good horses. It may be in tbe recollection of many of our rea lers, that during the last peace Massena boasled, " that if ever I10 should land in England w tli a t rench army, if lie could not conquer the country, he would render it u ifit to be inhabited," How well qualified he is for such en undertaking, the fate of Portugal proves, aud must be an additional spur to us, to retain every feel- ing of patrio'. i- in, keep alive the military spirit of the people, and cherish with ca e the diliorenl kinds of dom stic force, so eminently calculated lo overturn Rill defeat every attempt to invade our shores, ar. d subjugate our happy and enviable island.— Sec last page. . It is with pleasure we hear that a subscription is on foot f, r the purpose of purchasiug and removing the building which makes the turning from High- street towa ds Mardol so highly dangerous. The private conl ibutions, we understand, are considerable; and were the public bodies in this town to follow the laud- able example, this desirable improvement would very speedily be accomplished. The amount of Subscriptions received by the General Committee in London, for the relief of British Pri- soners in Frauce, is upwards of £ 26,000.— The Hull Subscriptions lor the purpose amouut to £ 840.— There are upwards of 10,000 British subjects in the different prisons of France, and to afford lliem relief, in a very limited way, for food, with some bedding, tucl,& c. will require au annual sum of from 20 to £ 25,000. The Society tor Ihe discharge and relief of persons imprisoned for small debts have made their auiiual report of the number of debtors discharged aud relieved within the last year, which amount to 769, who had 533 wives, ai. d 1536 children.— The average expense of their liberation amounted to £ 4. 16s.

Merioneth Assizes, ( with the exception of one paltry- cause, too insignificant lo notice) was a maiden one, and the doors of the county gaol were thrown open, not containing a single prisoner of any description.— It must be highly gratifying to the country, that only one prisoner was tried upon the whole of thai circuit, and he uot a native ot Wales. At Chester City Sessions, last week, Edward Edwards, lale book- keeper at the Feathers Mail Coach Office, against whom two bills were found, was charged with defrauding Messrs. Jones, Oakley, and Co. o a parcel, sent by the Mad from London, on the 8tb of March, and stealing thereout a number of notes, which he applied to his own use; also for uttering a bill of ex- change, in the name of Thomas Jones, oue ot the partners of the above firm, knowing the same to be a forgery.— To the former he pleaded guilty; and in compassion to his youth, 110 evideuce was ottered on the charge of forgery, on which indictment he was LONDON, Monday Night April 22, 1811.

At the late Warwick assizes, a hired servant to a far- mer was committed to prison for 14 days, for being disobedient, swearing impiously at his horses, and giving impertinent answers to his master, when spoken to.— This punishment holds out a useful caution to the many offenders of the same class. A circular letter has been transmitted to the Adju- tants of Local Militia regiments, by the Secretary at War, directing them to raise tnen for general servi. e, by beat of drum or otherwise, and to empower them to call on the permanent serjeants of the corps to whic'i Ihey belong lor their assistance. From the nature 0" tbe present situation of Adjutants, and the influence they may consequently be supposed to possess, the Commander- in- Chief has no doubt that the recruiting ot the army will be materially benefited by their exer- tions, and the necessary instructions have been therefore inclosed from his office for lhat purpose. As a proof of the ingenuity of Sheffield workmen and the perfection to which cutlery articles have been carried, a knife has been made at Messrs.

To the EDITOR, of the SALOPIAN JOURNAL. SIR, Oi) a re- perusal of Cervantes' celebrated Romance « f Don Q- oixote, a few years ago, soon after my recovery fr" m a violent lit of sickness, 1 was struck witli ihe rescu.- l) lttm » : between the. insanity'of Ihe mad Knight, and that delineation of it in Mr Locke's Essay uu the Human Un- derstanding; und as no author, I believe, has yet noticed it, and it may appear curious to such of your Readers as investigate this subject, I shall be obliged to you to give hoth passages a place in your entertaining journal, w hen unsolicited'by more important mutter As Cervantes flou- rished a whole century before Mr. Locke, as Don Quixote was along time without a good translation into our lan- j guage, and Locke, it is probable, never understood Spanish,; had be possessed a taste for compositions of this kind, the most singular circumstance is, that writers of a genius so totally different, so far removed by time and place, and who could never, hy any possibility, have^ perused the sen- timents of each other, should so exactly agree in a point, which the experience of subsequent years lias so long con- vinced us to tie just and natural. Though the English author be the lasl, in point of time, it will be proper, for the sake of perspicuity, to communi- cate his sentiments first; and, who, uPp. 121, vol. 1, of Ins Essay, observes, " The defect in Naturals seems to pro- ceed'from want of quickness, activity, and motion in the intellectual faculties, whereby they are deprived of reason; whereas Madmen, 011 the other side, seem lo suffer by the other extreme. For they do not appear to me to have lost the faculties of reasoning ; but having joined together some ideas very wronglv, they mistake them for truths ; and thev err as men do that argue light from wrong prin- ciples : ' for, by the violence of their imaginations, having taken their fancies for realities, they make right deductions from them. Thus you shall find a distracted man fancying himself a King, with a right inference reouire suitable at- tendance. respect, and obedience ; others, who have thought themselves made of glass, have used caution ne- cessary to preserve such brittje bodies. Hencc it conies to pass, that a man, who ii very sober and of a right under- standing in all other things, may, in one particular, be as frantic as any in Bedlam ; if either by any sudden very- strong im pression, or long filing his fancy upon one sort of thoughts, in coherent illeas hare been cemented together so powerfully as to remain united But there are degrees of madness, as of folly; the disorderly jumbling ideas together is in some, more and some less. In short, herein seems to lie the difference between Idiots and Madmen, that madmen put wrong ideas together, and reason right from them: hut idiots make Very few or uo propositions, and reason scarcely at all." " But is it not very strange, says the Spaniard, to see with what facility this poor gentleman, ( meaning Don Quixote) swallows all those lies and fictions merely because they are delivered, in the style and manner of his nonsensical looks." So very strange and singular, said Coidimo, that I question if there be any genius whatever so fertile as to frame such a character by the mere force of invention. And what is a very remarkable circumstance, replied Hie Cu- rate, waving thev extravagancies, which the worth y gentleman utters upon the subject of his disorder, he caH discourse upon other topics, with surprising ability, and qvpears to. be a man of great knowledge and intellects; so, that if ym do not touch up- on chivalry, his ' hearers must look upon him as a person of excel- lent understanding" Smollel's Don Quixote, vol ii. p. 4J. As not only this passage, hot the whole conduct of Ihe mad hero, as well as that. of madmen in general, accords with the Philosopher's delineation of this disease, I am myself well satisfied with its truth and fidelity, ar. d am, Sir, your very humble Servant, February 20th. AllETAiUS. ITINERARY MECHANICS. [ Extracted from the Appendix to the Third RepoTt of the Committee, appointed by thcHouse of Commons to take- in. to consideration tbe state of the Highways and the con- struction of Wheel- Carriages ; and also to examine what shape is best calculated for ease of draft, and to suggest such- additional regulations as may contribute to the. pre- servation of the Turnpike Roads of the United Kingdom.] I— ROADS. Form of the Country.— In discussing the properties of Roads, it appears necessary to examine the form of the country through which they pass. The surface of this island consists of small e'evations, interspersed through the plains, and intersected by high ground. or ridges, which, north of the Thames, run chiefly fr< im north to souih, with some lateral ridges; and tothe south of that river, from east to west. All the princi- pal cities anil manufacturing towns are built upon the banks of rivers, consequently there does not exist any necessity for the lines of Road taking elevated directions, except in the instances of passing the central ridvef. But the Roads, having been formed by gra dually widening the paths made in. early society, par- take of all the deviations to which those oaths were subject, increasing the distance beyond a direct line a- bout one- seventh part. Those deviations were made originally, to avoid obstructions no longer in existence; 111 some places ascending hills to avofd woods or uiar- shy tracts, now become open and solid; in others, inclining from a direct line for the opportunity of fords, now rendered unnecessary by the erection of bridges, and in all cases pursuing an apparently straight rouse, by surmounting ascents, the arch of which is at least equal in length to the level line formed by cir- cling their base. In every lino of Road which has come under my observation, the steop and difficult ascents could either be avoided by carrying the line round the hill, or reduced to gradual inclinations, surmountable l, v a much less degree of animal power than is now re- quired. And it is satisfactory to observe, that iu many recent instances this principle of improvement has been acted upon, and is extending with complete success, Roads have been formed nearly upon a level; or easy inclinations, through the mountainous districts of Scot- land, Wales, and Derbyshire ; and, indeed, the more the ground is broken by hills, the easier it is, by following t he projections and indentations of their bases, to pre- serve a level. Not to multiply instances, in the road from Brighton to London, through Reigale, anew line of twelve miles, bas been commenced to avoid Clay- ton- hill, which diverging from the present road at the foot of the south side of that hill, takes a westerly di- rection till it passes through an interruption in the chain of high ground, aud reaches Reigate upon a level ground, with a saving of two miles and a half of dis- tance ; and in part of this distance, of the extent of four miles, one mile is saved by going round the base of ah ill; but, in general, this principle is either not understood, or totally neglected. In r. ll limestone districts it could not only be carried easily into effect, but in some cases with prolit, bv burning the removed stone into lime for manure, Sic. Upon the Kentish load, which runs close to the Thames, a considerable excavation has been made and is enlarging, approaching within a yard or two of the road, to furnish stone for lime- burners: as- suredly the summit of the road, which now forms a dangerously steep ascent, could have been gradually cut down for that purpose, and the line of road considera- bly improved. In gravelly districts, the tops of the as- cents have not only been kept up by laying on fresh re- pairing materials, but valuable land on each side has been turned into quarries for the depth of live or more feet, for a considerable extent 011 each side, to raise portions of roads already too high ; when, as the whole is upon a solid bed of gravel, it would be very practica- ble to reduce the ascents by scraping off the worn ma- terials, and to employ the produce of tho quarries in filling up the hollows below, which would gradually form the road into an inclined plane. 8— Ililts.— In proposirg this plan of straightening the Roads, anil of avoiding steep ascents, it is by 110 means intended to infringe upon the proper clause in the present Acts, which secures to the owner that part of his property which comes under the descriptions of gardens, parks, & c. from being broken in upon. The value of laud used in agriculture, and taken for a new line of Road, can easily be ascertained ; for whether it yields a proht in cultivation or in purchase, it will be the same to the owner, with this difference, that the in- troduction of the Road will benefit the adjoining land in the ratio of one to three or four, according to local circumstances; but parks and gardens are not appreci- able by any valuation, 3. Bridges are frequently to be met with placed at the bottom ol valleys, with steep ascents on each side, and the construction of the Road is so injudicious, that after descending one side, the bridge itself presents an ascent; the carriage then has to descend upon the other side of the bridge, with the whole of the second emi- nence to surmount; were the hollows on each side of tbe bridge filled up to the crown of the arcb, the whole path of the Road would be formed into an easy and uniform curve. The bridges over canals, frequently upon plains, pre sent a sleep ascent 011 each side; it. would be expedi- ent to insert a clause in every Canal Bill, to compel the projectors to form the Sides of the bridges upon a re- quired inclination. From these general observations a conclusion may- be allowed to be drawn, that if all or most of the steep inequalities of the Roads were reduced to such requir- ed inclinations, that the wheel or shaft- horses could regulate and controul the velocity of the carriage in its descent, there would be, upon an average, a saving of al least l- 4th of the horse- power, now solely required to surmount those ascents, which are made more diffi- cult by the practice of locking the wheels or using slip- pers, which tear up the materials of the Road, and oc- casion serious obstructions lo the upward draught. 4.— Form of Roads.— The form of a Road is so inseparably connected with the construction of tbe carriages using it, that it is impossible to discuss the properties of the one without a reference to those of the other; and it would be perfectly unavailing to car- ry into effect principles of the formation of Roads, unless the carriages travelling upon them were con- strained to adopt principles of construction adapted to their use. Without this regulation, the best construct- ed Road, formed of the firmest materials, will be soon cttt into ruts and destroyed. 5. Example of a Good Road.— To render the principles of Roads completely clear, it appears neces- sary to describe a perfect form of Road, as an exam- ple by which the goodness of other Roads may be de- termined, according lo their approximation to ils shape and construction. Suppose aline of Road running nearly upon a level, upon a firm limestone district, breadlh from 30 to 40 feet, according to the traffic upon it; a footway upon one side, of a convenient breadth, six feet; the surface flat, or with so little curvature as will give a direction to the rain- water, and compensate for the double wear on the cenler, as twice the number of wheels run upon that as pass upon the sides; the surface of the Road continued uniform from the footpath to the opposite bank ; the ditches outside the fences kept low, and clean from weeds ; the trees lopped, affording free access of sun and wind. Were such a Road equally worn by Carriages in every part, the little dust produced hy at- trition would be Washed off by a shower, it would always be dry, every part equally smooth and firm, and it would last for ages. But, in the present system of tra- velling and conveyance, custom, the necessary distinc- tion of sides, and the propensity of animals to follow in each other's tracks, would soon wear the surface of the Road into ruts; those, according to the present plan of repair, would be filled up with loose fragments of limestone, not broken sufficiently small; to avoid the obstructions they present, carriages would form fresh tracks and fresh ruts ; the rapid destruction of the Road would occasion an accumulation of dust and mud, which, choaking up the ditches and outlets, would retain the water upon the Road, keeping it generally wet ; and the Road would soon be reduced to the common state of limestone Roads, a rough Uneven surface, with stones scattered upon it, dangerous to both the horse and Carriage. Were, on the contrary, every wheel so constructed as to press with an equal bearing of its rim or tire upon the road ; were the breadth of the wheel proportioned to the load, or to the number of horses employed; and were every carriage, according to its use, lo run a particular breadth of track; no ruts could be formed, the road would be worn smooth and • equally, and continue in the state first described. These are the principles of construction of rOacls and Carriages recommended by the Committees of the House o'f Commons, and which form the objects of this paper to demonstrate, as essentially necessary to constitute a perfect system of land- conveyance. AGRICULTURE.— DRILLING. EXTRACTS from Dr. WOIITHINGTON'S " Address la the Practical Farmers nf Great Britain." " A soil, clean and free from weeds, is tbe grand essential requisite for all successful and profitable husbandry. Fine crops of grain, and fine crops ot . weeds, never have grown at the same time upon the same acres. But the broad cast • husbandry is the promoter and ctierisher of weeds; and when land is become toul— when it is thickly sown with weeds at various depths, I venture to pronounce* it impossible to clear it to any lasting effect, while it remains under sucli hus- bandry. TO exterminate effectually these robbers of our fields, we must liave recourse to the drill and horse hoe system of agriculture ; or we must adopt tbe most unprofit- able of all possible plans and contrivances— the fallowing system, m its fullest and most naked condition- aud extent. But, fallowing will not clean and purge the laud from weed seeds, which . have for ages been allowed to engender, ma- ture, and sow them at all depths, which the staple can admit. No doubt, every farmer will join in admitting, that they are very injurious: but very- few. farmers are conscious of tbe real amount of the injury ; yet they easily may be, if they will only take the pains to keep five yards square of their crop free from tliem, by never suffering a weed to continue thereafter it has shewn itself above the ground; and by comparing that clean portion of the crop with any- other portion of the field. Was it possible for them, at- the same time, to lioe this little patch of land deep, and to mould up the plants, they would then find the quantity. of grain thereupon, at harvest, nearly double the weight of any other five square yards, they could pick out; but this cannot be done 111 broad cast tillage to any useful effect:" " With i- espect to the mode ot' turning in sheep, certainly no practice . can be more monstrously absurd than to eat in- cut off the prime leading stems of a plant on which all its best fruit was designed to grow, and to trust to a weak secondary vegetation for a future crop of any description. Mr. Lawrence in It is Farmer's Calendar says,' lay as much manure upon your land, as enables it to bear a crop of weeds aud a crop of corn at the same time: the latter will always be scanty in proportion as the former is prosperous and flourishing ; how much belter would it he to spare the muck, and extirpate the weeds. The hoise- hoeing culturc differs from the drill culture; the principles 011 which vegetables, and crops of all descriptions grow and thrive, consist in giving room for their increase of bulk, in ensuring full liberty for their roots to range, and thereby to collect nourishment, and in free admission of light and ail- to the whole plant. Let farmers have the resolution to throw off the shackles of domineering custom, and adopt this im- proved and advantageous plan of husbandry on every acre of his tillage land ; under whicli, if properly conducted, his soil will be for ever clear, mellow, fertile, and in heart; and 011 which, by a due attention and diligence, lie may grow good and flourishing crops of w- lieat 011 the same acres, every year of his life; and this too, with much less cost of manure and labour than the broad cast tillage requires to procure a crop of wheat once in three years." THE WAR IN THE PENINSULA. It might be thought an instance of magnanimity in the British nation lo receive the happy tidings which have reached us from Portugal with private compla- cence, and external coolness and moderation ; as if suc- cess, which is the usual result of valour and prudence, might give us satisfaction, but could affect us with no transports of joy and surprise; and in ordinary con- tests, or where the object contended for is matter of fair and honourable emulation between the parties, a calm degree of triumph best becomes the successful one. But let it be remembered, that it is not on a mere abstract superiority over a brave rival that the British ualion now exults; it is at the defeat and shame of an infamous oppressor— at the humiliation of inso- lence and pride— at the punishment of injustice, trea- chery, and rapacity. In short, there is no evil passion that" the most depraved of human hearts ever engen- dered and put in action for the curse of mankind, that has not been defeated by this disgrace of BONAPARTE in the person of his General. Aud is it not, therefore, virtue to triumph on such an occasion as this ? Portu- gal is once more free, and has time allowed her at least to balhe wounds which unprovoked cruelty bad inflic- ted on her bosom ; to repair her shattered cottages; to extinguish the snioaking fires that desolated her towns ; to wash away the pollutions of blood and mas- sacre that defile her edifices; and to prepare herself, as ueed may be, either to prevent the renewal of such horrors in future, or to chastise the authors of their. MASSENA'S flight continued with uuabated rapidity across the whale of Portugal; and Lord WEII/ INSTON ultimately pursued him with the cavalry and light divi- sions only ; skirmishing and taking prisoners as often a « our advanced guard could} he brought iu contact with his rear. The Portuguese militia and even peasantry, it is likewise of consequence to observe, have done the same. From some towns and villages his troops were wholly excluded by the determined resolution of the inhabitants, and their dread of the atrocities under which ( they were likely to suffer by the admission of so barbarous a foe. Among these the name of the town of Avo, and its gallant defenders CARDOSA and DA COS- TA, though sounds hut little familiar to English ears, will long live in the annals of the Peninsula. Ou the whole of the occurrences of Portugal, there- fore, as they now stand, the incontrovertible evidence of facts must constrain scepticism itself to join the gene- ral acclamations of applause with which the valour of the army, and the plan of the campaign, and the skill of the general, are justly greeted by more grateful nations lhan one. Whatever the future events of the war may be, we are now arrived at a stage therein from whence we can look round 011 ourselves and on our allies with mutu d congratulations. Thank9 to him and them by whom this has been effected. It is not success merely that entitles a man to the name of an able General; for this may be the result of casualty j but it is success, the principles of which have been long predisposed, aud the result foretold with modest confidence. The occurrences in the lower part of Portugal and Spain are equally gratifying with those in the upper. With equal pleasure, alio, do we look to the exploit of General Ballasleros, the Surprise and dispersion of Ra- mon's corps, as bearing an honourable part in the sue- cesses of the Peninsular war, at this moment calculated to place our Spanish allies in lhat rank which they just- ly held in the love and estimation of the British people. Who is there, then, but must rejoice at the review of such occuireuces! Let men but recollect the savage triumph of Bonaparte, when, being himself iu Spam, a part of his forces had fallen in with and sabred a few dispersed Englishmen, Let them recal to mind the in- solent threat of driving our whole army into the sea; and then let them say, whether we ought not to exult in the inverted execution of such a threat, so far as circumstances will permit, on Ihe heads of its authors. But, to feel pleasure iu the discomfiture of a common enemy, is but an emotion of common patriotism. It is the duty of humanity itself to tiiumph in the disap pointment of trauscendaut villainy, in the punishment of uncommon guill. May the national joy on this oc- casion be as permanent as it is general and sincere I Extract of a letter from Lisbon, dated March 30, ISLL. " For several weeks I have been prevented, by distance, want of communication, aud the bustle of an army, from sendiug you a line. By attendiug an escort of French pri- soners, 1 once more see Lisbon. Since my last, I call only briefly state the principal operations, and imagine you are already put in possession of particulars, by those stationed at Lisbon, for, although in the heart of the country and army, we frequently have to wait the Lisbon accounts, to know Ihe movements of our oul- posls. I liad been for weeks in view of Santarem, and saw at last, with pleasure, some indications of their abandoning it. The first was setting tire to one of the principal convents in the upper town, and part of the lower town ; the volume of smoak was immense for three days. On the 4th morn- ing, some information to depend 011 reached us, and the bugle of attack roused us from our pillows.— The haze of the morning clearing up, * wc ebuld easily perceive the out sentinels were men of straw, and- proved quite pas- sive I11 fact, a better managed retreat was never exe- cuted. Not a Vestige of a dollar's worth remained. Be- ing at the outposts with the 14th - Dragoons and ] st Royals, I entered with them, and three miserable deser- ters, who had hid themselves, were, with one too iii to move, the only enemy to be found. " Such a scene of horror, misery, and desolation scarce ever saluted the eye of man ! Smoaking ruins— the accumulated tilth of otoliths— hovses and human bo- dies, putrid to. suffocation nearly, caused ! o many a vo- miting. The houses unburnt, with scarcely a vestige of wood— doors, windows, ceilings, roofs, burnt— and where the sick had expired, there left to decay.- The number left was great. Every church demolished— the tombs opened for searching after hidden plate— every altar- piece universally destroyed— and the effluvia so offensive, as to defy describing! In some gardens, the miserable heads, undecayed, stuck up like, scarecrows— 111 some wells, a body floating.— l) o\ v 11 a. precipice, to which we were in- vited by prospects to look, the human and the animal carcasses, mingled in decay, repulsed onr senses, and sliud- deringly vibrated the soul at The savage, horrible, dia- bolical acts of a French army! I must here notice one grand precaution. The hospital was guarded immediately from entrance ; and, I'bel. iev'e, UJO serious ill ness proceed- ed froin the abominable . situation in wljich tFie French left it. From this place, a shpi t rest obtained, we rode on, . pressing hard upon them, by the gpiodhess of our cat- tle, and the animation of our men, who were delighted to chase the runaways. Greater spirits, better discipline and more order, never atteuded any army than this. T he French, to eonfuse our plans," had marched in three co- lumns. from Santarem: Two Were immediately fylV'wed. But 110 mod, e or means were able tg bring . them- to- liat- • tie. : Skirmishing was continued, arid prisoner's continually sent to the rear, until we reached Pon. i[; al., where Mas& cna seeing himself so closely run, hdlted ;'. Sihd, by position, kept us iu check, uutil his baggage had advanced further in security. We were all ready- for attack",. and waited for the morning; but the French politely wit. lidre- w in the - night, and we complimented them with our attendance 011 the following day. On - the Ceira river, we had another facing, but, after some hard firing, our dragoons go; t . to their rear, iind they surrendered ; nearly the whole regiment. These I had to forward, and Baw little more of fighting.- " But to see the country is to weep for the. horrors of war. Such horrid excesses I never saw before ! Every town, vil- lage, or cottage destroyed. The growing nursery and tlie wild grove, each havocked for'destruction sake. The pot that refined the oil, broken— the wine- press burnt, for burning's sake— the grape- vines destroyed, as noxious weeds— the furniture unhurt)!, thrown from the windows, and with carriages, & c made a bonfire of; the huge libra- ries strewed over the land in remnants of paper; the noble convent in ashes ; and the poor unhappy, aged inhabitants, unable to flee, hung around as ornamenting the wall, to or 12 in a place ! " A thousand more like these I could recount. No age— no lank— no asylum— 110 respect! I11 one convent I found three unfortunate females, 70 or 80 years old They were literally naked as on entering the world, striv- ing to conceal themselves under some rushes and straw." Wednesday night, about 11 o'clock, 49 French prisoners, among whom was a Captain, ( who also con- trived to get away his baggage) escaped from the south- west coi ner of their prison, in Edinburgh Castle. They had cut a hole through the bottom of the parapet wall, below the place commonly called the Devil's Elbow, and let themselves down by a rope One of the prisoners, losing his hold, fell from a considerable height, and was so dreadfully bruised, that he is not expected to live. Five of them were retaken next morning, and 14 were seen on the road to Glasgow. The night being dark, the operations of the prisoners were not observable; but the sentinel, on hearing some noise, became suspicious of the cause, and firing immediately, gave the alarm to the guard ; otherwise, it is probable, tho whole might have eflected their escape. The following advertisement was in the New York Commercial Advertiser, of the 26th ult: " Take notice, I do hereby forewarn all persons of trusting my husband, Archibald, Hazlett, any thing 011 my account, as 1 bave paid several grog bills for him." " ISABELLA HAZLETT ," The Eagle of the 8th French regiment, taken at the battle of Barrosa, which is to be laid at the feet of his Royal Highness the Prince Regent, on Tuesday next, is stated in a Dublin paper, lo have been captured by Serjeant Masterson, of the 87th regiment. This brave fellow who was born in the town of Roscommon, lias been promoted to the rank of Serjeant Major, but we presume his advance will not stop there. Milton, the horse dealer, has engaged to drive four blood horses, in a chaise marine, 15 miles in 48 minutes a period of four minutes and a half less lime than the celebrated match undertaken by Mr. Sheward. The race will be attempted about the middle of May next; the road is not as yet fixed upon. A great deal of betting has already taken place ; one bet is 100 guineas to 1000, that Milton performs his task in 45 minutes. The deposit was paid down yesterday; the wager is for. 1000 guineas a side. All the sporting gentlemen from Melton Mowbray and Yorkshire are expected in town to attend this charioteering fsat. Potlce.— Three ptrsons, viz. George Jaqurs, Anne Jpques, his wife, aud James Bidwell, were on Wednes- day last, examined separately at Guildhall, before tbe Sitting Alderman, Sir William Curtis, on suspicion of having conspired to maim or murder a boy, about 12 years of age, the son of the Prisoner " Bidwefl., Mary Lee, an aged widow woman, deposed, that she lived at No. 1, Cumley's Court, QueenhitKe, exactly opposite the house in which the prisoner, Jacques, his wife, and a young man, their son, resided.— James Bidwell, lived in Star- court, in the same neighbourhood, and, being a widower, had placed his two children, ihe eldest of whom was between 11 and 12 years of age, under the care of Mrs. Jaques. On Monday morning last, about half past twelve o'clock, she heard a great noise in Jaques's apartment— she would not say that she heard any blows, but, from the expressions made use of at the time, she thought blows must have been struck.— The expressions she alluded to must have proceeded either from the prisoner Jaques,, or his son ; but their voices are so nearly alike that she could not distinguish the difference. The first words she heard • were, " If you struck me, as you did the child, 1 would have knocked your hi— y head off I" and afterwards in the same voice, " The deed is done, it is all over!" The witness was very much alarmed at these expres- sions, and did not retire to bed.-— Between two and three o'clock she heard the noise of some persons coining down Jaques's stairs ; and on looking from her window she discovered James Bidwell, the elder, coming- out of the house, with something, which she could not ( lis- I tinctly perceive, in his arms. In the morning, between seven and eight o'clock, when Mrs. Jaques, opened her door, the witness went over, and expressed her appre- hension that something very dreadful had been perpe trated. There were marks of blood on the floor, and she believed an attempt had been made to efface them, as she had heard the scrubbing- brush made use of in the course of the morning. O11 the witness perceiving that there was hut one Of the children in the bed, she immediately inquired for the other. Mrs. Jaques an- swered, " that he was gone to his father's 100m iu Star- court." Witness proceeded to James Bidwell's lodging, but he was not at home at that time. She, however, was determined to satisfy her doubts on the subject, and called a second time ; she then saw him, and inquired, " Where is your pOor boy ?" Bidwell smiled, and said, " He supposed he had gone out to play." Witness then observed, " I am afraid, from what. I have witnessed, that I shall See him 110 more' aud proceeded to look about the room, as she suspected he had been concealed somewhere by the lather. No- thing suspicious however was developed by the search ; and she returned to Mrs. Jaques, whom she again questioned as to the fate of the unfortunate boy. Mrs. jaques then informed her, " The boy was not dead — he was in the hospital; and if any persons inquired after him, they were to be told he had gone to the country for a month or six weeks." She did not hear either of the children cry duriug the night. This was all she knew of the matter. Mr. Richard Wilson Brown, house- surgeon of St. Bartholomew's Hospital, stated, that James Bidwell, the boy, was brought to the hospital about three o'clock 011 the morning of Monday last, by a man and woman — the woman appeared very much agitated. The boy was in his shirt, reclining in the arms of the man. To the identity of the latter he could not positively speak. The boy had received a deep wOund in the thigh. On his inquiring how theaccidnethad happened, lie was informed by the parties, " that thexhild had been- sent out for a pot of porter, and, in going dov^ n stairs, with a knife in his hand; had fallen, when the knife entered his thigh." The boy had subsequently told another story, viz. " That the wound had been " occasioned by the knife falling from the table ;" but this story was more im- probable than the former— for the boy admitted that he was covered in bed with a blanket, and two coats, which must have prevented the mere falling of a knife occasioning such a wound. The boy was then doing very well; but, when first brought jn, the wound being filled with what appeared to~ be arterious blood, witness was apprehensive that some, of the great vessels were injured. After some difficulty he succeeded in stopping the hemorrhage by applying the proper means. The wound was of considerable magnitude— but the buy ap- peared to have sustained no other injury, with the exception of a cut on three of his fingers, which he said had been inflicted by himself in chopping Wood. . Sir William Cnrtis, to prevent the boy being 1am- . percd with, directed that no persons, except those connected with the II0spi$, J, fsboy flf b 3 perm i t ted to have areess- to him. . , '. ..-'"':, V .. .". The Prisoner, George Jaques, said, he- knew nothing of the matter, until he was cajtrd . lip _ by his s*> u at halt- past twelve o'clock-. On lea'tuttrg," tiie accident, lie im- mediately sent his sou for tire, iioy's father. Oik bis arrival the boy was taken to the hospital.. He assisted to carry him, but did not go into the hospital. His wife, and James Bidwell the father.. took the chili in.— There are two beds in the rodim? at his * lodging in Cumley's- court, in one of wiiltlh his ( JaqueS's) son slept with tbe two children. He and his wife occupied the other. His wife had not gone to bed. when he was called up ; she was then partly undressed. His son had been quarrelling with his mother for staying out tHI a late hour— but he had not been told, nor did he know how the accident happened. He did not hear the child cry— being a hard- working man, he slept very heavy. One of the Officers here observed, that the Prisoner, on being taken, had confessed, that his wife had com- mitted the act. On the wpmati, Ann Jaques, being put in the dock, and questioned as to tire manner in which the child re- ceived the wound, she said, he had fallen down stairs, with a knife in his hand, which had entered his thigh. In answer to a remark made by the woithy Alderman, she observed several times—" that it had not been done designedly." James Bidwell, the father of the child, was next placed in the dock. He, however, knew nothing of tile transaction farther than having been roused from his bed, and having assisted in conveying his son to Ihe Hospital. He had be n told by Mrs. Jaques, and also bv his son, that the wound was occasioned by his having fallen down stairs— as he believed this to have been the fact, he inquired 110 farther. He had always believed that Mrs. Jaques paid every humane and proper atten- tion to the comfort of his " children— nor bad he ever any reason to think differently. George Jaqttes and James Bidwell were then dis- charged; the worthy Alderman strongly reprobating the unfeeling conduct of the latter, in not having made more minute inquiries into the circumstances of the case. Anne Jaques was remanded, until her son, who must have been present when the wound was inflicted, is produced. All the parties are in a low station of life. The woman appeared in the Dock with Bidwell's other child in her arms, which Alderman Curtis ordered to be taken from her, and delivered to tile father with directions to procure some more proper person to take care of it. On Thursday, Charles Jaques, the soil, was examined. He stated that his mother, the prisoner Ann Jaques, came home intoxicated late 011 Sunday night. In consequence of her situation, and the disturbance he received, being desirous of sleep, to rise carlv to his labour, a quarrel ensued, and at eleven o'clock she behaved iu a most violent manner. She first took a poker, which he wrested from her grasp, and afterwards, in a tit of rage and passion, seized a long knife, with which the family used to cut their meat, aud threw it at him with considerable violence. The knife did not touch the son, but it unfortunately struck the child, who was in tlie son's bed, and inflicted the wound in his thigh, which became the subject of inquiry.— The magistrate remanded ihe prisoner until the final report of the surgeon, respecting the boy's danger, or safety, shall be , gn en. Ponr- ic WORSHIP.— The King v. Burton and others. — At the late Kent Assizes, an indictment was brought forward, charging tiie defendants with having, in con- junction with others, on the 23d of December last, in the town of Wye, 111 Kent, disturbed a congregation of the people called Methodists, in the connection of the late Rev. Mr. Wesley, by assailing them in a most violent and rioo- us manner with stones, bricks, & c4 thereby putting them in fear, and endangering their lives. Mr. Garrow rose to address the Jury ( on the part of the prosecution),- but was prevented by the Lord Chief Baron, who observed, that it was really as'onishiug how any man who read the New Testament should ever conceive lhat Christianity could be propagated by persecution, and th. it it was not so propagated in ancient times— that it was disgraceful in any country for people to be persecuted for difference ef opinion iu religious matters, but more particularly so iu this- happy country, where every man is allowed to think and choose for himself. He dreaded the bringing of such instances as this into discussion in a public court, a* they cften reflected on the conduct of the magistrates, in not duly repressing the spirit of intolerance which occasions such . disasters. He repeatedly slid, that nothing had a more direct tendency to puli down the Established Church, time an attempt to support it by persecution. As we could not all think alike, it became our duly mutually to bear and forbear with each other. We all conceive our different sentiments to be founded i in the New Testament, and if we be in error, persecu- [ lion is not the way to correct ii. Ju reference to the present case, his lordship expressed a stroaj desire that it might be settled without going- to tiie Jury; and hoped that if the defendants ( who were present) asked pardon for their offence,- and engaged to behave well in future, the n atter would be terminated w. thout further trouble. Mr. Garsow replied, that it Was always a pleasure for him to coincide with his lordship's opinion, but especially in this case, as he was sure he had also the concurrence of his clients. Punishment was not the object sought by the Prosecutors— they only wanted to worship God in peace. For his part, if he lived in Wje, he should certainly attend the Established Church, in which he had been educated, and the doctrines of which were most congenial to his own ideas— but what then?— he would not go and knock out the brains of the Methodists because they attended their own meet- ing ; for he should not like the Methodists, or Roman Catholics, or any body else, to knock his brains out because he went to church; He could not expect . heirt to square their consciences according to Ills views, any more thau they could expect he slum id square his conscience according to theirs. However; as his clients only wanted peace, he had already, on their behalf, engaged that if the defendants pleaded guilty, they should not be brought to the King's Bench, to receive judgement; but he was willing to settle the matter in any other way that his Lordship should suggest. Mr. Garrow then addressed - lie prisoners, and observed* that they must not think this a triumph, as though they were acquitted. It must go out and be known* that this people can worship God undisturbed. The defendants were tO know, that the prosecutor, Mr. Robarls, would again go to Wye, and the very next Sunday lie would be there to officiate io his own plaee, which he must do without interruption. , In this his lordship fully agreed ; and addressing himself to the defendants, assured them they had no c iuse for tr'iunfph, - and they ought to consider them- selves as treated with great lenity that they were not capitally indicted for felony. " Their Counsel ( Mr, Serjeant Best and Mr. Marryatt> perfectly acqu esced iii'his lordship's and Mr. Garrow's observations; and exphcitly^ said, Ihe defendants were extremely sorry for • hat they had done, and' that it would never happen again; and that the louity of tile prosecu tors should be considered as an indulgence grant- ed to them. Mr. Serjeant Best also said, he was anxiou*, for a most respectable magistrate, to say, that this affair, which lie bad- been very desirous to prevent, had given him very graat concern. His lordship then, with muclv humane feeling,. expres- sed h s satisfaction; and directed that the defendants should enter into recognizances of £' M each, for their good behaviour for five years; which was accordingly done. " 6 An immense quantity of provisions of every descrip- tion. has been brought into Liverpool, from Irebnd, within the last few days, particularly butter, corn, and s dt provisions, besides upwards of 5000 Irve pigs, and more than 1000 sheep and horned cattle. On Wednesday, a pidgeon match was shot at Wood- ford Wells, Essex; trap 20 yards from gun, bounds 70 yards, 21 shots each. Mr. Crunden hit 13, missed 8 ; Mr. Brien hit 11, missed 10; Mr. Suell hit 10. missed! 11. That n- any persons have found great benefit who have un- fortunately pursued a dangerous pi inw- iee in their youth ire unguardedly giving way to that criiiie which brought on the divine vengeance,- is incontesiihly illustrated by the match- less and unprecedented sale of " Solomon's Guide to Health " j. a book which of all other's iii the medical line is so universally necessary to be used and treasured up by young and old In- every family, that Ihe increasing depiaud for it cannot be wondered at, when it is considered lhat, as a faillijitl Gu - ie either to male or female, it has not its equal in the wholo woi'ld.— Price 3s. only.
