Ellesmere, iZth May, 1311. THE CORDIAL BALM of GILEAD affords the most permanent Relief, and is happily calculated for the Weak, the Sickly, and Infirm. Persons nf either sex, who from habits of indulgence, late silting up, sedentary employment, anxiety of mind, frequent intoxication, sudden frichl, over exertion, a weakly constitution, the bile, or other causes, are subject to various distressing nervous affections, including sick head- ache, hysterical and consump'ive com- plaints, disrelish for society or business, tremor and general emotion on the most trifling iccasions, loss of appetite, in- digestion, Sue. will Hud immediate relief from the use of this medicine. , . . ,, In debility, seminal weaknesses, bilious and irritable habits, tabes dorsalis, cr nervous consumptions, its merit stands unrivalled. It enters into aud mixes with tbe most subtile of the animal fluids; assists, invigorates the decayed juices, and throws a general warmth upon the debilitated and relaxed parts that stand in need of assistance. Persons entering upon the holy stale of matrimony, should consider lhat " where the fountain is polluted, tbe streams that flow from it cannot be pure." In the most excruciating pains of the stomach and viscera, or- wijirliness, it gives instant relief; and where the vital principle has been impaired, and animal vigour exhausted by the irregularities of youth, bringing 011 a premature old age, il will be found an invaluable remedy. In all those diseases lhat have their rise from irregular living, or an enfeebled state of the digestive powers, its effects are astonishing, debility of speech, and al! other the menial and corporeal powers that depend 011 the tone of tbe nervous system, have so frequently and suddenly yielded to its power, as render unquestionable its efficacy iu those disorders.

SIR— In pursuance of the instructions I had the honour to receive from you, on the 26th inst. for intercepting the frigates which had escaped from Toulon to the eastward, I lost not a inomeut ill pushing thro' the Straits of Bonifacio, directing the Unite at the same time to go round by Cape Corse. On my rejoining her last night, oft" this island, I was informed she had been chased during the day, by tbe enemy's frigates, and that they were working through the Piombino passage. All sail was immediately made in that direction, and, at dawn this morning, they were discovered a little to windward, viz. Emily, 40 guns, Adrian, 40, Dromedaire, 20. From the short distance they were from the land, I regret we could only succeed in cutting off the Dromedaire, the rear ship; the other two narrowly escapcd from Capt. Chamberlayne by running into Porto Ferrajo.-— The Dromedaire is a very fine frigate built ship, of 800 tons, sails remarkably well, and is only live months old; she was constructed by the French government for the ex press purpose of carrying stores. Her cargo consists of 15,000 shot and shells, of different sizes, and 90 tons of gun- powder.— She was commanded by a Lieutenant deVaisseau, and her compliment 150 men. From the report of the firisoners, it appears they were bound to Corfu.— I have the lonour to be, £ IC. 11. W. OTWAY. [ Transmitted by Sir R. Calder ] Scylla, within Les Triagos Rocks, of Morlaix, May 8. SIR— I have the pleasure to inform you that, being close in with the Isle of Bas, this morning at halt- past 9 o'clock, observed a man of war brig, with five small sail under con- voy, to leeward, which I immediately grve chace lo; half- past 11 came up, and commenced firing at her and convoy ; 45 minutes past 11, finding we were within LesTriagosaud Pontgalo Rocks, and she was determined, if possible, to rnn on shore, obliged me to lay the Scylla 011 board her, then going eight knots ; in two minutes afterwards we got possession, but not before her first captain, one midship- man, the boatswain, and three seamen, were killed ; one midshipman and five seamen dangerously, and five seamen slightly Wounded. She proves to be the French national bi- ig La Cannonere, of ten 4- pounders, one 24- pound car- roiiade, and four swivels, with a compliment of 77 men, commanded by Monsieur Jean Joseph Benoit Schilds, Enseigue de Vaisseau, out only two hours from Pcrros, bound to Brest 1 think if we had been off the land she would not have fired a shot at us; but with the hope of running her on shore, and being close to it, they fought hard, and I am sorry to say, the Scylla bad two seamen killed; oue midshipman aud oue marine slightly wounded. I was only enabled lo get possession of one of her convoy, a sloop laden with wheat, the other four having got within the rocks and run 011 shore; indeed I was glad, from tbe shattered state of La Cannoniere, and tbe wind and sea in- creasing, to get out from where 1 was, with what I had — I11 tbis little affair I have great satisfaction to mention, that Mf. Speck, my first lieutenant, all the officers anil crew I have the honour to command, did all they could; 1 should be proud to have an opportunity where thev could shew themselves to a greater advantage— 1 have the " honour to be, Ike. ( Signed) A. ATCHISON. Sir C. Cotton lias transmitted to J. W. Croker, Esq. a letter from Capt . Talbot, of the Victorious, giving an ac- count of tbe destruction, on the coast of Albania, of the Leoben, Italian schooner of war, of 10 guns and 60 men, bunud from Venice to Corfu, with ordnance stores, 011 the 30 til of January last. WEDNESDAY, MAY 15. PRINCE REGENT.— The Prince Regent has signified his Royal intention of reviewing; the whole Volunteer Force ofthe Capital and its environs, in Hyde- Park, 011 Wednesday, the 5lh of June. Bui that this day may be dedicated to something more than the mere purpose of military parade," his Royal Highness, we understand, proposes to give on that evening a magni- ficent Gala Ball and Supper, at Carlton House, to the ( lueeu, Princesses, and Noblesse, indutifulcommemora- tion of the Birth Day of his Royal Sire, whom he so affectionately loves, and his afflicted Sovereign, whom he fervently reveres; and that this may bo made fur- Iher subservient to national good, the Prince Regent has directed it to be expressly notified on the several cards of invilatiixi, " that every person, of whatever " rank or sex, is expected to appear on this occasion " dressed entirely in the MANUFACTURES OF THE " UNITED KINGDOM OF THESE REALMS! 1" After such a notification, what visitant will be found, that has not zealously conformed to a dictate benevolently directed lo the prosperity of the people. We also trust it will operate as an example and introduclion for a general system of encouraging and supporting the skill and industry of British workmen, by the disuse and discountenance of the frippery derived from the enemy. I11 the last interview which the Lord Chancellor had with the King at Windsor, his Majesty very calmly discussed the claim of the Berkeley Peerage, and stated some circumstances concerning it, but little knowji, with the utmost precision. Soon after his Lordship withdrew, his Majesty's conversation with those attend- ing him, is said to have been less temperate. Accounts have been received from Paris to the 6th inst. but no intelligence has been made public relative to the armies. We learn, however, that the lale failures in the French capital have in a considerable degree affected the fortunes of some of Bonaparte's Marshals and favourites. The bankruptcy of the I • use of Pierlot and Co. has produced a shock iu the cominer- i cial affairs of France, which wiil probably be felt over all the continent. The money dealings of this house were immense. Bouricnne is said to have deposited near half a million sterling in it, the fruits of his cor- ruptions and exactions while he was in office in Ham- burgh. In our last we mentioned that intelligence had been received of the arrival of the lleet commanded hy Sir James Saumarez in the Baltic. The appe ranee of so powerful a naval force in that sea has spread an alarm thro' all the stales on its shores. In Denmark, Sweden, Prussia, and Russia, the report of the approach of the British flag could not fail to excite emotions both of hope and fear. The latter has been quickly manifested by the Danish and Swedish Governments. The par- ticulars of the preparations in Denmark we have not yet heard: but it is said, that immediately oil our squadron anchoring off Gottenburgh, Couut Vou Essen the governor, directed the batteries to be manned, the troops to line the coast, and every attempt at landing lo be repelled; measures were also taken to guard tiie ships of war at Carlscrona. Bernadotte was lo quit Stockholm on the 6U1, to make a tour ofthe coast, and was expected to visit Gottenburgh before his return. The troops were inarching from the interior towards the principal places on the coast. There are six prisoners confined for debt in the county gaol at Maidstone, whose united ages amount to nearly 423 years: the average of their debts is £ V2 each; one has been confined nearly two years; three eleven months; and two about five months. Superstition — Thursday evening, as Mr. Drewe, a tradesman in Wapping, was sitting by the fire- side, a piece of coal exploded, and part tell at his feet. Mr. D. 011 examination, found it shaped like a coffin, and this accidental concurrence with a dream that he had the preceding day that he should die that evening, had so powerful an effect 011 him, that he became extremely ill, and, notwithstanding the atlentions of hi3 family, left at the Place ofSule, a Fortnight before the Day of Sale, and the aid of medical men, he died the following day. THURSDAY, MAY 16. Dispatches have beeti received from Lord Welling- ton, from which it appears that active hostilities were very llkelv to be soon renewed, and that the reason assigned for the return of Lord Wellington to the north- eastern frontier was the true one— namely, the return ofthe enemy to that quarter. It now appears, that the defence of Almeida has been entrusted to no less a person than Regnier, who has about 1S00 men in the place. There has been some indirect information of Massena having received reinforcements from Sala- manca, and having further strengthened himself by getting rid of all his useless hands. He has by these means been rendered able, if not to attack Lord Wel- lington, to occupy him by various manoeuvres s and his Lordship seems to hold it not improbable, that the enemy may attempt a second entrance into Portugal, for he has again called into service the Portuguese militia, who had been permitted to return to their homes. AI Oporto the militia, under Tranf, Wilson, and Bacell ar, had been collected, and on the presumption that the French w; puld retire into the interior of Spain, they bad been dismissed, to pursue their rustic duties, for the supply of the country at the approaching har- vest. The return of the enemy in force to the fron- tiers, induced a change in this purpose, and four days after they Were recalled, in drder to garrison the prin- cipal towns, and lo set the regulars of the allied army at liberty to resume offensive operations. Under these circumstances, we learn that the militia having met at the place of rendezvous are now in full march to Visen, Pinhcl, and Guarda, to garrison those places, leaving a competent force at Lamego in the event of a new visit from Gen. Claparede, that he may be pro- perly received in that vicinity. Nothing official has been published from General Beresford, but it is said lhat Soult and Mortier have joined, aud that they threaten to make an attempt for the relief of Badajoz, the siege of which place is going on. French papers have been received to the 12th, but they Contain no intelligence of importance. Letters from the coast, ( luted the 14th, say nothing of mili ary affairs, but enough of commercial disasters. Two mo:' e failures had taken place at Paris, and as the houses which had stopped were of the first rank, they v. ere expected to involve many rubers in their rtiin. I11 the list of failures is a Swiss House, one of Lie most re- spectable in Paris. This particular failure was expected to involve several more houses, a dozen at least, iu. a similar calamity, as they were most extensively con- nected. The Imperial Banker at St. Petersburg!), Baron Rolli and the House of Hasselgreen and Co.^ at Amsterdam, have also; failed. A Lisbon Mail has also arrived, bringing Ihe papers of that place to the 6th inst. They inform us that Ballasteros had formed a junction with Marshal B'eres- ford. His troops were attacked On their march 5 ' but he is stated to" have succeeded in effecting liis object with very lit'lje loss. The troops - which lately sa letl from Cadiz, and which were disembarked 011 different, points of the county of Niebla, had been concentrated by Gen. Blake, who on the 21st marched to Caslillegos. Gen. Zayas remained at Ayamonle, There have beeu some skirmishes on the Guadilaa, but according to the last accounts at Lisbon,' nothing of importance lias oc- curred. A letier from Villa Nova, in Catalonia, stales, that the French, under Gen. Macdouald, bad been d._- fealed near Maiiieza, with the loss of 15u0 iv; en. The Auckland packet has arrived at Harwich with a mail from Heligoland. The Horalro frigate h i - I return- ed from her cruize up the Jahde, after an unsu. cussful attack upon the French giin- hoals, of which she had gone in pursuit.— His Majesty the King of Sw eden, who accompanied Captain Stuart, landed 011 his ret. i iio the island, and " had taken up his residence at the 1 HISJ of Edward Nicholas, Esq., The letters and papers by the mail are to the Sth instant. They stats, that h i Swedish Majesty had, in the cruize, volunteered his services as the leader of a storming party. It is nmrgh he will take an active p rt in the operations medrated iu tbe North. It is now conjectured that the House of Lords, how- ever well they may be inclined to the contrary, caniio come to a decision on the Berkeley claim and peerage this Session of Parliament. The Counsel for til - Crown , and tho Counsel for the younger brother, are s'. ill to produce evidence against the claimant. They will then have to answer the arguments of the claimant's Counsel, and finally he will have to make a general reply. The Loan.— Yesterday the gentlemen who waited- upon the Chancellor of the Exchequer, ou the business of the loan, were informed that he would be ready to receive their biddings at ten o'clock 011 Monday morning, for the amount required, which would b"> £ 12,000,000. The subscribers t. i have for each £ 100 money, £ 100 three per cent, reduced £ 20 tiiree per cent, consols, £ 20 four per cent.; and the biddings to be taken in long annuities. There is a most extraordinary trial coming on in the Court of Common Pleas, Bolton v. the Queen, for £ 44.000, a charge made for instructions given to the Princesses in writing and drawing. Her Majesty has- entered tile pie 1 of assumpsit, and also the statute of limitations. These have been replied to, and the case will probably he tried in the sittings after the term— Mr. Bolton also brought a charge against ihe Princess Elisabeth for £ 12,000; hut her Royal Highness has' been advised to file a bill in equity against In, a. We understand a great number of tin ooafs are making at Woolwich, to carry about five men in each, and to he drawn by horses. They are said to be for Portugal; but whether for this or any other service, it seems that Government are desirous of having them got ready immediately, as upwards of 200 , , eii have been employed for some days past, in order to complete them with the utmost dispatch.

A dispatch, uf which the followingU an extract, was on the 15th inst. received at Lord Liverpool's office, addressed to his l ordship by Lieuietiaiit Geu. Viscount enemy hod on the 23d attacked our I> ii quets on the Azav3, but were repulsed. Captains Dubbs and Campbell, of tiie r. 2d regiment, and Lieut Kelts, of the 05tli regiment, dis- tinguished themselves upon this occasion, iu which ' the allied troops defended their post against very superior numbers of the enemy. One Lieutenant ( Lieut. Pritchardj and J7 soldiers were wounded. The enemy, repeated their attacks upon our piequels on the Azava ou the 27th, and were again repulsed : and this day they Reconnoitred the . bonks of this river with eight squadrons of cavalry iml three battalions of infantry. They did, not make any at- tempt to pass the river, uor did they attack the picqnet lipon the bridge of Marialva. They have collected a very large force at Cuidad Kodngo. Marshal M- assena and the head- quarters of the army are at that place. The river Aguedaisnot yet fordable for infantry; but is so for cavalry. Sir William ISeresfojd has taken up the position which I bad proposed for him in Estreruadura ; hut I have not y « hoard that he bad re- established the bridge at Jurauieuha. The Gazette contains dispatches from Admiral ^ ir Charles Cotton, Commander in Chief in the Medilier, ra. iean, inclosing an acconnl from Capt. Koste, ojf a most gallant action which has been fought in the Adri- atic; and a letter from Capt. Bullett, of the Cambrian, giving the particulars of the surrender of Figtterjas, ion the Coast of Catalonia, to the Spaniards; from which we have made the fo lowing extracts: II. ill. S. Amphion., off the Jdavd of Lissa, " March 24. It is with much pleasure I have to acquaint you that after au action Of six hours we liavi Completely defeated the combined French and Italian squadrons, consisting of five frigates, one corvette, one brig, two schooners, one gun- boat, and one xebec; the force opposed to. them was his Majesty's ships Amphiou, Cerbej'. ux, Active, ajid Yolaec;* On the morning ofthe 1: 1th, the Active made the signal for a strange fleet to windward, and daylight'discovered ta us the enemy's squadron lying to, off the north point of the island of Cissa ; the wind was at tbat time from the north- west, a fi « e breeze. The enemy having formed in two divisions, iosiautly bore down to attack us under all possible sail. The Bi itish line, led by the Amphion, was formed hy signal in the closest order ou the starboard taek to receive tltem. At nine A. M. the action commenced by our tiring oil the headmost ships us they came within range ; the in. ter. tion of the enemy appeared to be to break our line in two places, the starboard division, led hy the French Com- modore, bearing upon the Amphion and Active, and the larboard division on the Cerberus and \ olage; in this at. tempt he failed ( tlio' almost aboard of Us) by tbe well directed tire and compact order of our line. He then en- deavoured to ronnd the van ship, to engage to leeward, nnd thereby place us between two fires, but was so warmly re- ceived in tbe attempt, aud rendered so totally uninanagc. able, that in the act of wearing lie went on shore on the rocks of Lissa in the greatest possible confusion. The lint- was then wore to renew the action, the Aniphiou not halfa cable- length from the shore ; the remainder ot the enemy's starboard division passing under our stern and engaging us at leeward, whilst tbe larboard division tacked anil remain- ed to windward, engaging the Cerberus, Volage and Active. In this situation the action commenced wilh great fury, his Majesty's ships frequently in positious which unavoidably e- poseu them to a raking fire of the enemy, w ho, with his superiority of numbers, had ability to take advantage of it; but nothing, Sir, could withstand the brave squadron 1 had the honour to command. At 20 minutes past 11 A. M. flic Flora struck her colours, and at 12 the Bellona followed her exumple. The enemy to windward now endeavoured to make off, but were followed up as close as the disabled stale of his Majesty's ships would admit uf, and the Cerberus and Active were enabled at three P M. to compel the stern- most of them to surrender when the action ceased, leaving us in possession of the Corona, of 44 guns, and the Bellona, of32 guns, ( the French Commodore) tbe Favourite, of 41 guns ou shore, who shortly after blew up with a dreadful explosion, the corvette of the enemy making all possible sail to the north- west, and two frigates crowding sail to the port of Lessina, the brig making off to the south- cast; aud the small craft flying in every direction, nor w as it iu my power to prevent them, having no ship iu h state to follow them. I must now account for the Flora's getting away after hav- ing struck her colours. At the time I was engaged with that ship, the Belloua was raking us; and when she struck, I had no boat that could possibly take possession of her.; I therefore preferred closing with the Bcllona and taking her, to losing time alongside the Flora, which I already con- sidered belonging to us. 1 call on the officers of my own squadron as well as those of the enemy to witness my asser- tion. The correspondence I have had on this subject with the French Captain of the Danae ( now the Commodore) is convincing, and even their own officers ( prisoners here) acknowledge the fact. Indeed 1 might have sunk her, and so might the Active ; but as the colours were down, and all tiring from her had loug ceased, both Capt. Gordon and myself considered her as our own : the delay of getting a boat on board the Bellona, and the anxious pursuit of Capt. Gordon after the beaten enemy, enabled him to steal off, till too late for our shattered Bhtps to t ome up with him; his rigging and sails apparently not much injured; hut by the laws of war 1 shall ever maintain lie belongs to us. The squadron of the enemy was commanded by Monsieur l) u- lrourdieu, a Captain de Vaisscau, and a Member of the l egion of Honour, who is killed. In justice to a brave man I must say, he set a noble example of intrepidity to those under him. They sailed from Aiicona the nth inst. with 500 troops on board, and every thing necessary for fortifying and garrisoning the island of Lissa. Thanks to Providence we have this time prevented them. ORDER Of BATTLE OF THE ENGLISH SQUADROTI. with Silva, will also shortly lie ours. The fall of Figurcas has roused the Spaniards, who are arming in all directions, and Hostali ic. il and GeroUa are at this moment garrisoued by Spanish troops. The only correct account I can learu is, that ion Italians, with 200 French troops, were left to pro- tect Figueras, and that the former, disgusted with the treatment tliey daily receive from theFreiicn, and being albo half starved) opeuedlhe gates of thefortess to a body of the Spanish troops ( apprised of their intention) who rushed into the castle, and put every Frenchman to the sword. At this moment about 2000 effective Spanish troops are in full pos- session of this important place; and General Sarsfield is on his way with more, as well as supplies of every kind. The French General D'Hi liters, who has the command in Cata- lonia, on hearing ofthe fall of Figueras, lias abandoned all his holds in Spain, except Barcelona, and is collecting the whole of his force to attack it, as well as lo prevent supplies from getting in ; hut I am told a quantity of provisions was concealed iu the town, unknown to the French, which liave been/ given up to the Spanish troops in the castle, who are in the highest spirits possible.— The Termagant continues to \ f atch Barcelona, and I purpose remaining off here with the Volontairc, ready for auy thing that may offer, as under all the existing circumstances I think it likely Rosas may give up. I also beg to inform you, that a large settee, deeply laden with grain for Barcelona from Port Vendee, was the night before last most handsomely cut out from under the Moles islands aud batteries, hv the boats of this ship, led oil by Lieutenant Conolly, without a man being hurt. P. S. Since writing the above, 1 spoke a small boat from Begar, which tells me the French General had made a rash attempt to recover Figueras two days since, and lost 700 men. • SATURDAY, MAY 19. Paris papers to- the 9th inst. have arrived. The Moniteur has published a long report on the slate of the war in S. pain and Portugal. It includes an account of the retreat of Masseua, and Morticr's operations after the surrender of Badajoz. Gen. Latour Maubourg is stated to have- kept Marshal Beresford in check, and to have sustained some severe actions with our army, in which the enemy are said to have been successful. The vessel which brought the French papers, also brings intelligence to the following effects— That a de- tachment of select emissaries had been employed by Bonaparte to entrap and carry off his Majesty the King of Prussia. These men, having arrived near Berlin, are said to have dispatched a messenger to his Majesty, intimating that an ambassador from Bonaparte was in the vicinity, and requested an immediate interview. The King, previous to receiving such summons, had heard of their approach; and either being informed, or suspecting the object of the mission, declined the in- terview proposed ; and has been since said to have put his persotl under the protection of the Emperor of Russia. BY letters of the 9th from Paris, we learn, that the commercial distress is so very great, that confidence no longer exists, ar. d discounts are become impossible. Two per cent, per month is patd for money borrowed upon goods, with the condition, that the lender may sell the goods at the expiration of the month, if nol redeeoied.

WELLINGTON to the Governor of Opoito, giving an account of a general battle having been fought between the Allied Army and the French under General MASSE- NA, 011 the 3d, 4th, and 5th inst. near Almeida ; that on the 5th THE FRENCH WERE COMPLETELY DEFEATED, with the lots of Four Thousand men killed in the field, and Seven Hundred taken prison- ers, besidesnumbers drowned in the retreat across three rivers. Lord Wellington said, that at the time of writ- ing his dispatches, he was in pursuit of the remains of the French Army towards Salamanca.

T he summons was acccded to ; they laid dow n their arms, and were made prisoners of war. The spirited conduct of those young men deserves every praise, nor can I forbear mentioning the dastardly behaviour of a Sicilian privateer brig of 14 guns, named Ihe Vincitore, and commanded by Capt. Ctemcnto Fama, who was lying in this port and previous to the commencement of the action hauled down his colours lo a small one gun Venetian schooner; this was witnessed by every man in the squadron, and I believe there was but one opinion 0: 1 the subject. Messrs. Kingston and Lee afterwards went on board, took charge of the brig, beat off Ihe schooner, and prevented her from destroying the vessel in the bay 1 have omitted a circumstance iu my former letter respecting the Corona, whit h, froni the meri- torious conduct of those officers and men employed, de- serves to be mentioned The Corona caught fire inthe main top, shortly after lier capture, and the whole of her iriain- uiiist and rigging was instantly iu liaiucs.

His Lordship is said to add, that in consequence of this he deemed it most probable that a general engagement between the French army and hi3 own would within a few days take place; or that at least, should this supposition fail, the surrender of the besieged town would be protracted for fourteen days, by the resolute attempts of thecneray without its walls for its relief. By the Anholt mail, arrived this morning, we learn that a detachment of the Sect under the British Admiral had entered the Baltic sea. No ships were allowed to prrceed to the Prussian ports, not even such as were in ballast; and which, therefore, had 110 property liable to seizure in those, harbours. All vessels destined to the Russian ports were allowed to proceed thither, under the supposed good understanding as to the com- mercialarrangements which subsisted between theCourts of London antl Petersburg)!. But the most important fact is, that Alexander has listened to the petitions of his injured merchants, and has signified it to be his in- tention to grant licences, in coudeaccnsiun to the prayer they have presented him. This morning New York Papers lo the 9th last were received. It was lately slated, that the Magdalen, from Liverpeol, had arrived at New York; but having left the British port subsequent to the 2d of February, she was directed to cruize off the port until tbepleasure of the Government was known. This application the Secretary of the Treasury answered, by directing the Collectors of the different ports to admit all vessels to entry, whifji shall have cleared out from Great Britain previous to the 2d of February, and shall have used all due diligence in departure. Her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales's Birth- day. was yesterday celebrated, at Kensington Palace, by a public bceakfast. In the evexing her Royal Highness and her Royal Daughter, Princess Charlotte, and se- veral Nobility, diued with the Duchess of Brunswick, at her house in Hanover- square. The argument in the case of Sir Francis Burdett v. The Speaker of the House of Commons, was closed yesterday, and the Court immediately gave judgment against the Plaintiff upon all the points. The Court consisted of the Lord Chief Jnstice, Justices Grose aud Bailey; Mr. Justice Le Blanc being absent inconse- quence of indisposition; and they were unanimously of opinion, that the House of Commons had a right to arrest for a breach of their Privileges— that the Speaker was authorised to issue a Writ for that purpose— and that the writ in the present case was duly executed.— No qui • ion of constitutional law has occurred, since the issue of Press Warrants, that appears to have ex- cited greater interest, nor to which the public attached greater importance. The talents of the House of Commons have been laboriously exercised upon it; It has been most ably argued at the Bar; and the judg- ment now pronounced is lhat of a Com I iu which the Chief Justice who presides, while not inferior in talents and learning to the most distinguished of his prede- cessors, was excelled by none of them in his regard for the liberty of the subject, aud attachment to the Constitution. An offer is now made to the public of a preparation by Mrs. LAWRANCE, of UFFINCTON, for the Cure of the RHEUMATISM ; which, by her appointment, is sold, iu packets at 6s. fld. and 3s. 6d, each, by the PRINTER OF THIS PAPER, in Shrewsbury ; Mr. SAMUEL WALMSLEY, Wellington; and Mr, HARDING, Shiffnal.— The most respectable References can be given of its certain Efficacy.

JUST ARRIVED IN THIS TOWN, Where Ihey Kill remain till Thursday Evening, 23d Inst, and positively no longer, AND to be seen iu seven large Caravans, built on a new Construction, entirely foi the Purpose, in the Market Square, near the County Hall, ALL UNITED TOGETHER, MILES's Grand Collection of Living Curiosities, From Exeter ' Change, Strand, London. T MILES,. duly impressed with a grateful Recollection of former Patronage, begs Leave to inform the Nobility, Gentry, and Public, that be lias once more brought forward bis beautiful Exhibition of living Birds and Beasts ever shown in Ibis Kingdom. The most Noble ELEPHANT, The greatest Living Curiosity in Europe, and tbe only one now travelling In Europe. Tins amazing half- reasoning Ani- mal was taken by Col. Atkinson, of the East India Com- pany's Service, at Bombay, on the Malabar Coast. The Colonel was returning with his Troops from a Field Day, & heard a tremendous roaring iu au adjoining Wood, where they found tbe Dam of this Elephant immersed in a deep Pit, inlo. whicb she bad fallen, and the young one was mak- ing . Efforts. to Suck' her. This Creature was Iherefoe made a Captive; and given to Capt. Campbell, who con manded the Lord Keilh; and was safely landed in go » d Health, 011 the first of February last, at Blackwall, wlioe the . present Proprietor bought it for 110 less a Sum than FIFTEEN HUNDRED GUINEAS. It is docile, tract- able, and good tempered as a Lamb, and possesses all that wonderful Sagacitv, which Pope emphatically calls " The half- reasoning Elephant." This Creature and the Carnage weigh about Six FOBS. Two Large and Beautiful BENGAL TYGKRS, The largest and most stately of their Species travelling this Kingdom, and whose terrific Appearance excels any before seen in Ibis Country. In Strength they are little inferior to tbe Lion, being enabled lo carry an Ox or a Buffalo 011 their Back with the greatest Ease; and their Majestic Form strikes every Beholder with Astonishment. A Beautiful Leopard &> Leopardess. ONE NOBLE SEA LION, The largest ever seen, which far surpasses any of its Spe- cies ever lauded in England, and is allowed to be the most perfect Animal ever exhibited. He was taken 011 a Moun- tain of Ice, 300 Miles from any Land, and brought to North Shields on board the Isabella. The Singular aud Astonishing Quadrupeds, THfi KANGAROOS, The Male, and two Females, with their Young Ones Wliat renders these Creatures particularly curious is, that the Female lately brought forth Young tines, which come out aud retire into the Cavity or Pouch at Pleasure, and are allowed to be the first Specimens of N. tnre ever ex- hibited, aud not to be seen in uy other Collection. ONE BEAUTIFUL OSTRICH, from New South Wales : Tbe only Bird of this description that ever travelled in Great Britain, w hose swiftness is far superior to that of any horse. The M ale stands 10 Feet high'. GRAND CASSOWARY, Lately arrived, and which cost tbe Proprietor One Hundred Guineas; this Bird, though' not so tall as the Ostrich, yet more bulky mid'proportionally m,.< W, io uu Inhabitant of the Island of Java ill the East Indies, bis Countenance is tierce, and his Appearance altogether singular, being about 5 Feet high, covered with Feathers of variegated Colours, Two Feathers in • very Quill, and crowned with ail impene- trable Helmet 01 Horn. Tpger Cats, Male and Female, From Seringapatam ; the most beautiful Animals of this Description ever seen. Ttvey are striped like the Tyger, spotted like tbe Leopard, and are allowed to surpass all Quadrupeds. ROYAL HUNTING TYGER, from Seringapatam. The Ravenous Untameable IIYJEN A, The ONLY ONE in this Kingdom ; resides in Caverns, or Holes, aird- Dcns, which it digs in the Earth. Its Disposi- tion is so ferocious, that though taken young, it can never be tamed. It lives, like the Wolf, by Depredations, but is stronger, more daring, and rapacious. It inhabits Asiatic Turkey, Syria, Persia, and Barbary. The superstitious Arabs, when they kill these dreadful Creatures, bury the Head, for fear it should be applied to Magical Purposes. When irritated for Want, il tears up the Earth, where dead Men and Beasts are deposited. TWO REAL SATYRS, Male and Female, Six Fecthigh, from the Interior ofSouth America, stronger than any two Men, such Animals were liever seen in Great Britain ; ICHNEUMON, or Man- preserver, tbe only one in this Kingdom; the Abyssinian OUNCE, the onlv one ever brought to England; CIVET CAT; WOLVERINE or GLUTTON; a Pair of COTAMUNDAS, well known Enemies to the Crocodile and Alligator; EAGLE of the SUN; Silver FALCON, from the East Indies; Silver- beaded VULTURE ; with more than One Hundred other rare and valuableWILD BEASTS and BIRDS, and a great Variety of other Natural Curiosities, which canuot in llie Limits of an Advertisement be described. Mr. MILES, grateful for the liberal Encouragement be has experienced from an enlightened Pi.'. die, most respect- fully begs Leave to assure them, that his present Collec- tion, which has cost him some Thousands of Pounds to procure, is considered by Naturalists as the most rare and taluable ever offered to the View of tbe Public. Admittance, Ladies and Gentlemeu 2s. ; Trades- people Is. To be seen from eleven in the Morning till eight in the Evening; aud as tbe Animals are fed between eight and nine, sucb Persons as wish may see them fed at 3s. each.— The Booth is kept well aired, and every Attention will be rendered for the Accommodation of Ladies anil Gentlemen who may 11 ; ase to honour the Proprietor with their Pa- tronage. BIRDS and BEASTS bought, sold, or exchanged. n-- S> It Is intended to exhibit the above Collection at the IRON BRIDGE, on FRIDAY EVENING NEXT ; at NEWPORT FAIR on TUESDAY; and proceed from thence lo Birmingham. , NEW MERKETS.— WELSH POOL. \ T a numerous and very respectable Meeting, con- £%. vened by Advertisement, and held at the Oak Inn, in the Town of Welsh Pool, IT WAS . UHANIMOBSLY RESOLVED THAT, from the great Growth of WOOL, and the Manu- facture of BUTTER and CHEESE, in the Couuty of Mont- gomery, and from tbe Distance of tbe present Markets for the Sale of each of these Articles, il appears highly neces- sary to this Meeting that a Market should be established for the Sale of them within the said County of Montgomery. 2dly, ' THAT the Town of WELSH POOL is the most com- modious Situation for the said Markets, and that they be there held— For WOOL on the FIRST MONDAY after the loth of J ULY' ; for BUTTER aiid CHEESE on the FIRST MONDAY after tbe 811th of SEPTEMBER, and ou the SIXTEENTH of NOVEMBER. 3dly, THAT a Committee of tlilee be appointed, any two of whom to be capable of acting, to carry the Measure into Effect; and that PRYCE JOI* ES, Esq.

The following address has heen presented to bis R « ) al Highness the Prince Regent; which Address his Royal Highness was pleased to' receive very graciously : To the PRINCE REGENT. Thc dutiful Address of the Householders of the city and liberties oftWestminster. MAY IT PLEASE YOUR ROY AT. HIGHNESS, Sincerely attached to your person, as on the present oc- casion will he evinced, it is- with a lively sensibility we par- ticipate in the sorrow your Royal Highness must feel for the cause of your having been called to your present situation. But we trust, that," by taking on you a nation's cares, de manding, as they now do, au undivided mind, the private griefs of your Royal Highness must be less painfully felt — it has been, sir, With extreme dissatisfaction we. have con- templated those habitual suspensions of the regal authority, some of which have been but recently brought to lighl, that have been so derogatory to your Royal Highness, and are in I'. ieir nature so portentous; but we trust that a repetition of such suspensions, which we know not bow to distinguish from usurpations, will be rendered impracticable. Inde- pendent of these unconstitutional proceedings, there had been much cause of complaint, if not of suspicion, in the obstacles interposed by Ministers for preventing the ac- customed access of tbe subjects to their sovereign ; where- fore, sir, in now beholding your Royal Highness Regent of the kingdom, we are inspired with a cheering hope, because his Majesty, should his health be hapily restored, will assuredly, through the faithful report of your Royal High ness, learn the true condition of his kingdom, and the real sentiments of his loyal and aggrieved people. In habitual suspensions of the regal functions it is uot a mere token we discover whence to infer the existence of evil. In breaches of the Constitution so flagrant we do not witness" mere slight indications of something wrong: but they are so many proofs that a borough faction, trampling 011 the rights of crown and people, triumphant reigns. In the example now fresh in all our minds, the indignant nation hath seen in full display that factiuu's odious pretensions, and your Royal Highness has been made sensible of its detested power Thirty years ago it was declared by Sir George Savile, in his place in Parliament, that the Commons House was no more a representation of the people of this kingdom than it was of the people of France. The scats iu that House, both for close and for open boroughs, are noto- riously marketable. One of them, as we are credibly informed, was once bought by a French King's mistress for her English correspondent in time of war; and it stands 011 record that, at another time, those seats were purchased wholesale by the Nabob of Arcot for his intriguing agents. None then, sir, can assure us, that at this day a whole troop in the pay of a Napoleon may not sit and vole in lhat House. The inveteracy of this disease was made manifest to the whole world, when, in the cases of Mr. Henry Wellesley, Lord Castlcreagh, and the piesent Minister, Mr Pcrccval, all accused of trafficking in those seats, not only no punish- ment ensued, but the traffic was vindicated— and for this extraordinary reason, that it was become as notorious as the sun at 110011- day. Here, sir, is the cancer of the state. With a House of Commons rapidly becoming., by the virulence of this pest, a mere mass « f corruption, death must ensue, unless the cancer to its last fibre be eradicated, and free Parliaments restored. For such a restoration your Royal Highness must perceive that no talent, no wisdom, no virtue in ministers can become a substitute. Proud and., lighl meahave indeed in all ages, pretended to such a skill. Pulled up with a conceit of their own sufficiency, they have been abundantly ready todispense with Ihe consitution. But did not all history proclaim the absurdity of such pretensi- ons, that absurdity must, to every reasoning mind, be self- evident. The nature of the nefarious system of government, which hath grown with the growth and strengthened with the strength of the boroiigli faction, is ascertained to us by long and calamitous experience. Its root is tyranny; its fruit is ruin. It scourged Ameiica into resistance: Ireland it tortured into rebellion. 11 disinherited your Royal High- ness of many and flourishing states; and the numerous seamen of those states it alienated from the English navy. It was this system of government which peopled our prisons with innocent persons, for the malignant persecution of whom Ministers took shelter, under a bill of indemnity passed by themselves and their abettors. It is this system of government which hath pauperised more than a million of our English fellow- subjects ; and which daily augments the number. It is this system of government that covers our once free land with bastiles and barracks; that brands the millions of England as cowards, needing foreign sol- diers for defenders ; and that brings back upon us the doc- trines and the cruelties of the Star Chamber. This system of government, bj a blind infatuation, confers 011 French and other foreign Roman Catholic officers what it offen- sively refuses to native Irish, filling the hearts of the Irish millions with indignation and resentment; combusti- ble passions, which, so pent up, cannot without terror be contemplated. This system of government halli hi the end demonstrated the wickedness and exposed the folly of those who, lb tear from the people all hope of a just reform, forced them into an unjust war. Tor, after hundreds of mil- lions have been insanely squandered, after rivers of blood have been inhumanly shed, after the nation, foiled and disgraced, has heen reduced to a forlorn hope, after all this lias been brought on us by corrupt, short- sighted and tyrannical men, for putting down anil treading under foot Parliamentary Reform, it is at length seen that in this Reform, and in this Reform alone, national salvation can be found. During the machinations for fettering your Royal Highness and bringing you under tbe galling yoke, you must, sir, have noticed the faction's base ingratitude to the King your father, for whom, with the deepest hvpocrisy, they affect the greatest devotion. That system of govern- ment which has been our bane, that system of government which had its origin 111 the worst corruptions, and the most treacherous counsels of ill advisers, they made 110 scruple to call the King's own system of government. There is 110 view, sir, of the nation's affairs hut must impress 011 yo Royal Highness a conviction ofthe pernicious con sequences of a system of government founded on a House of Commons iu which the people are not represented. Wherefore, the suhjcct which above all others, for its paramount importance, we are anxious, sir, to rivet Oti your thoughts, is that which your Royal Highness has found to be uppermost in our own, Parliamentary Reform. It being our confident hope that flic present session will uot pass away without a renewal of Parliamentary efforts jn that cause, we believe, sir, that a public knowledge of an earnest desire on the part of your Royal Highness for the success of those efforts, would assuredly cause theiT early triumph. Convinced indeed we are, that whenever thc crown and the subject, for mutual self- preservation, shall make common cause in pursuit of this indispensable object, the odious, the intolerable usurpation of tbe borough faction, smitten hy thc united rays of I lie law, the constitution, the throne, and thc nation, must, like a noxious exhalation, melt in air, and disappear. Against all counsel for protecting or fortifying the borough faction, who are hostile to your every interest, we trust your Royal Highness will be 011 your guard. Ours, sir, were we entitled to offer it, would be counsel of another complexion ; as will be that of all those loyal and faithful advisers, whose desire it is that your Royal Highness should escape the toils of the wicked, that you may not lie unconstitutionally shackled, arid made to appear the patron of a faction, instead of standing li ce, dignified, independent, and illustrious at thc head of the nation. Once, sir, identified with the borough faction, farewell to greatness! Think, sir, of a Prince of Asturias and aGodoy! Surrounded hy the toils of that traitor, the unhappy Prince became instrumental in undermining his own reversionary throne, and in accelerating thc downfall of the kingdom of his inheritance! Ill the borough faction » ir, behold an army of Godoys '. It is this faction, sir, ostentatious of its usurped do- minion, which, for several months at a lime, you have now a scconil time seen carrying 011 government over the English nation without either a King or a Regent; thus striking in public opinion at the utility of the kingly office; thus striving todeepen the root of their own usurpation, and to accustom the people to the most extravagant exercise of their hateful power. Wherefore, sir, we repeat, that it is a faction which alike tramples on the rights of crown nnd people. All but the name of King this insolent taction hath usurped. Nay, sir, with a King's authority it is not content; Hie faction aims at noihing short of being- despotic. When therefore your Royal Highness, with ns, shall be convinced, that the usurped authority of the faction is utterly incompatible with " the safety, honour, and dignity of his Majesty, and tbe welfare of his people," which, as Regent, you have sworn " you will in all things, to the utmost of your power and ability, consul! and main- tain," that conviction in ti. e 111 iud of your Royal Highness will he to us a source of the most animating hope, and a presage of recovered rights and liberties. Were it not, sir, a law cf nature, tbat none can taste the godlike pleasure reserved to the patriot Saviour, who hath not fitst acutely felt the pain of contemplating public wrongs and calamities, the citizens of Westminster would have to regret that the wrongs and calamities of their country should have made the principal theme of this their first salutation of your Royal Highness, in the character of Regent. But having not failed to dwell slso v* ith emphasis 011 that Reform which is ihe sole remedy for Ihe nation's political ivits, tliey trust tlicy have given the best proof of their anxiety tbat the blessings of a grateful people should await your Royal Highness; and that hy all posterity your name should be venerated as long as human records shall cudure. It is thus. Sir, the citizens of Westminster give you their pledge, that, in all vour exertions for saving the state, they, with life and fortuno, are determined to staud by your Royal Highness, The Duchess of Bedford is establishing a school for girls at Woburn, in which a new system of needle work will be taught. The Georgics of M. Delille, in the course of a forty vears sale, have produced a fortune lo a whole family-, iis not lower than 200,000 copies are supposed to have been circulated. The copy- right has at length been sold to Messrs. Michaud, of Paris, for 1000 guineas. Miss Tilney Long, confessedly the richest heiress in Europe, after having been besieged by Dukes, Mar- quisses, and Earls, English, Scotch, and Irish, is said to be about to surrender to a subaltern of the enterpriz- ing corps of WELLESLEY. At a grand fete given by William Beresford Parfect, Esq . nephew of Sir H. Addison, of Milton- court, So- mersetshire, on the former coming of age on Friday last, a grand display of gymnastic exercise was given as a Ireat to the neighbouring gentry. Somerset beat Hants at backsword, as did Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, and after prizes had been distributed to the most light heeled damsels of either county, for their speed in run- ning, a boxing match closed the amusements oi the day, between the coachman of Mr. Parfect, and an athletic navigator of the name of Swaine, for a sub- scription purse of £ 2,0. LIBEL — In the Court of King's Bench, on Monday, Mr. Dampier moved that the rule iu the case which called 011 Mansell Phillips, Esq M. P. to shew cause why a criminal information should not be filed against him for a libel, of which he was thc author, reflecting 011 the conduct of tlie Bishop of Deny, which appeared in a newspaper published at Swansea, called The Cambrian, should be made absolute. — No cause being shewn, the rule was made absolute. MANDAMUS.— Mr. Holroyd moved for a rule to shew cause why a Mandamus should not issue to two magistrates of the town of Sheffield, demanding them to hear a com- plaint against a woman of the name of Sarah Parker, for making knives there, and exercising thc trade of a cutler iu that town, without being duly authorised, being neither free herself of that corporation, nor yet the widow of a free- man. It appeared by Hie act of incorporation for that town, that she should have one or other of those qualifica- tions, hut actually was not possessed of either. The rule vi as therefore granted.

The parties slept at Hounslow on Saturday night, and parted, but thc lady was surprised on leaving the inn, and a talka- tive chamber- ma d disclosed sufficient for the discussion of the sages in Westminster- hall. Cily Deputation to the Regent.— On Friday, about two o'clock, Ihe Lord Mayor of London, accompanied by the Recorder, the Sheriffs of London and Middlesex, Messrs. Aldermen Sir William Plumcr and Goodbehere, and the City Remembrancer, went to Carleton House, as a deputation from the Corporation of the City of Loudon Soon after their arrival, they were intro- duced by Colonel M'Mahon, General Turner, and Col. Bloomfield, into the presence of his Royal Highness the Prince Regent, in the State Room, where the Recorder read to ilis Royal Highuess the Address of the Cor- poration, voting his Royal Highness the Freedom of the City, and praying to know when he would be pleased to receive the same.— His Royal Highness made a most eloquent answer, acknowledging his sense of the honour intended to be conferred upon him, and his attachment to the Corporation. At the same time expressing his regret that the spirit of the Constitution prevented him from receiving it, owing to the office he held of Prince Regent. They were all most graci- ously received, and invited by his Royal Highness to partake of a cold collation. CHESTER RACES.

INSOLVENT DEBTORS' BILL. Upon the motion for the House to resolve itself into a Committee upon this bill, Lord ELI. ENBOROUGH said, he rose for the purpose of opposing this motion, because he was satisfied the bill was composed of such mischievous and dangerous matter as would destroy the commercial credit of the country. To the common retail dealers in trade this bill would be absolute'destruction. The creditor was entirely neglected in its provisions, and he was sure that House ought, iu all its legislative acts, particularly to attend to the honest and injured creditor. If this measure passed into a law, a debtor, whatever might he his conduct, provided Jit were not an offence coming under the description of obtaining goods by false pretences, which was made, iu some instances, a transportable offence, would have the power of claiming the benefit, whereby lie could remain 110 longer iu prison than six months.— The hill in its principle was full of various objections, and he should therefore oppose the motion for going into a Committee — The Earl of MOIRA said this hill was not that which accorded with his own notions of what it otiglit to be, but that would not prevent him from giving it iiis firm support, for he was persuaded some measure of this description was absolutely due to the justice of our laws, and was confidently cxpecteil by the people of this country. His noble and learned friend had certainly mistaken the object of Ihe Committee; for lie could assert, without a possibility of contradiction, that in that Committee the same regard was equally extended to the creditor and the debtor. The dirt aud rubbish ofthe present system must he removed, otherwise 110 wholesome superstructure could be erected in its place; and lie thought this bill, though not what he wished it to be, would produce that happy effect.— The LORD CHAN- CELLOR said there were so many objectionable parts in the bill, and be perceived so much difficulty in amending them, that although he was not averse to its principle, yet he was afraid when it should have gone through the Committee, aud should have been recommitted again, it would not be that hill which would permit him to give it his support, in order that it might pass into a law.— The House then went into a Committee. Earl STANHOPE said, he did not approve of the present bill, though lie approved of tlic principle ou which it was founded. The noble earl then suggested several amend- ments to the bill, particularly one altering the time of confinement.— Lord REDESDALE opposed this, as being contrary to the general intention of thc measure.— Earl STANHOPE observed, he should not divide the House Lord Grey's b. f. by Sir Oliver dam Scotilla L.

Extracts from the Heads of the Act for taking an Account of the Population of Great Britain, now carrying into effect:— The overseers of the poor, or some substantial house- holder of every parish and place in England, shall take an account of the number of persons found within each parish and place, and set down the particulars— Penalty on persons refusing to answer, or wilfully giving false answers, a sum not exceeding five pounds, nor less than forty shillings — Officiating ministers in England shall transmit an answer lu the questions in the Schedule relative to baptisms, burials, and marriages, before the 20th of June, 1811, to the Bishop of the Diocese, who shall transmit the same, before the lothofjuly, 1811, to his Archbishop, to belaid before Ihe Privy Council by the 1st of August; who shall cause an abstract thereof to be laid before Parliament.— Justices in England shall appoint a time and place ( between the 24th gf June, and 20th of July, 1811), for the overseers or house- holders to attend with returns and answers to the six first questions stated in the Schedule, and cause notice of such time and place lo be given to them and the high constables ; and the overseers, & c. shall then deliver the returns upon oath.— The account taken throughout Great Britain for preparing the answers and returns, shall be preserved by the churchwardens, & c ill England, aud delivered over to their successors ; and the clerks of the peace, & c in Eng land, and the sheriff deputes, & c. in Scotland, shall trans- mit the returns to the Secretary of State by the lst of August, 1811; an abstract of which shall be laid before Parliament within three months.-— Persons employed to have an allowance for then- trouble and expenses from the county' rate and poor's rate.— Penalty on clerks of the peace, constables, churchwardens, overseers, schoolmasters, &. c. tor- wilful default, a sum not exceeding five pounds, nor less than forty stuffings; aiid in case of such wilful default, or of omission to attend with the returns, other persons shall he appointed: Confined Debtors.— In the Court of King's Bench on Tuesday, Mr. Taunton applied for a rule to shew cause why a debtor, confined in the gaol of Glocesler, should not be discharged out of custody, on the ground that his plaintiff, in paying him the weekly allowance under the Lords' Act, had given him a bad shilling, which was uot the current coin of the realm. It ap- peared, from the affidavit of the debtor himself, and of two other persons, prisoners in the same gaol, that on Monday the 22d of last month a person came to pay him the sixpences ; that he paid 3s. 6d. and went away before an opportunity was afforded of examining whether they were good or bad ; but that on investigation one piece which purported to be a shilling, was bad, antl never had been the current coin of the kingdom.— Lord Ellenborotigh asked, whether the defendant had de posited the piece with the Turnkey or any other Offi- cer of the gaol, or whether he had shewn it to, or complained of il, to any Officer of that gaol, and like- wise whether it was in Court— To all these questions no affirmative answer could be given; and his Lord- ship said, that under these circumstances it would only be doing an injury to the party to grant a rule, to put him to expense, and excite hopes which must be baffled.— Rule refused. Projected Travels in Africa.— A German, of the name of Routgen, a scholar of the celebrated Blumenbach, in Gotliugcn, has announced his intention to endeavour to penetrate into the interior of Africa, nearly iu the track pursued by Mr. Hornemann, who, as he has not been heard of for nearly ten years, is thought to have perished in the enterprise. This young man is about twenty years of age, aud seems to have obtained all that kind of knowledge which is particularly necessary for his purpose, lie under- stands thc Arabic language, is remarkably abstemious, and has accustomed himself lo make raw flesh arid insects his food. At Gottingcn lie submitted to circumcision, that he might appear to be a true b liever in the Koran, and in the character of a physician travel through those countries where the name of a . Christian would infallibly lead to slavery or death. Ill his peregrinations 011 foot through Germany and Switzerland, he always chose the worst lodgings and accommodations, to inure himself to hard- ships. Iu Germany and Paris he has collected a number of questions proposed by the literati, relative to the unknown regions which he intends to visit. He means to endeavour to accompany a mercantile caravan from Modagor to Tum- buctoo.— From the Hamburgh Correspovdc- nten of April 17. Parish Registers.— It has been proposed, as an improvement upon the method now in use of register ing baptisms, marriages, and deaths; that in the case of baplisms, the trade or profession of the father, when and where the parents were born and married, should be iuserted. Wilh respect to marriages also, the Iradeor profession of the husband, and when and where the parties were born; and in the case of burials, the trade or profession of the deceased, whether married or unmarried, and when aud where bom ( if it can be ascertained). It is further proposed, that the officiating Minister iu every parish in England and Wales shall send, 011 thc first Monday in every month, or oftener if required, lo a Registrar to be appointed for the pur- pose, ( having an office in London) separate lists of baptisms, marriages, and burials solemnized in his parish during the preceding month. The Registrar in Loudon to make out alphabetical lists of the whole, for the purposes of general reference. The difficulties that have frequently been felt in proving pedigrees, which have often produced the most injurious effects to par- ties claiming property, and always greatly enhance the expeuce of legal pioceedings in such cases, must at once tend to shew the vast utility of such a plan. An unlucky discovery of a faux pas occurred the latter end of last week between a gallant major, who resides in Berkshire, and the wife of a tradesman in the neighbourhood of Charing Cross. The lady had gone on a visit to her relations, and Thursday last was ap- pointed for her return ; but not having made her ap- pearance 011 Friday, it was discovered that'she had left the cor. ch at Cohbrookc and gone from thence to 1 1 3 2 2 dr. 4 dr. 5 dr. 6 dr. dr. against Mr. Bettison's b. c. by Sir Oliver, 3 yrs.

( there were few peers present).— Indeed the House was thin he should not press his amendment; but there was grtai defect in thc machinery of this bill, and tbe expenses weie so great that it appeared to him like an oyster when it Wat opened; for tire lawyer would eat the inside himself, ancone of the shells would be left for the debtor and the otter for the creditor—( A laugh).— The defects of it were ; < lf", 1 k .- hit lies so great, that they appeared almost impossible to be mend- 01 cronies, ed ; they reminded him of a baker and Mr. Pope, when Mr. Pope said " God mend me!" " Ah," said the baker, " he had better make half a dozen like me, than he at the trouble of mending such a crooked thing as you"—( A laugh).— The noble earl, after suggesting some other defects, said he should leave the bill 111 the hands of the noble and learned lord, who might cook it as he pleased, but if he did not admit some alterations, it would not be cooked at all to his taste.— The Earl of MOIRA suggested the propriety of avoiding debate, and for thc present let it proceed through the Committee ; which it accordingly did.

The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER submitted several Resolutions relative to the Countervailing Duties upon Spirits, and also one relative to an additional duty upon wash or wort made for the distillation of spirits from grain, which lie said, would produce a supply towards the service of the year lu the amount of £ 400,000. As the Countervailing Duties upon Spirits were unfair, in two parts of the united kingdom, as to the third part, the object of his Resolutions would go to remedy tbe defect: but as there might be vari- ous contradictory opinions upon the proper mode of doing it, he should merely this day submit certain Resolutions upon the subject, and propose that they Should be taken into consideration upon some future day. For this purpose he should submit two plans, leaving it for future election which of the two should be adopted. He begged at the same time to state, that he should 011 Monday move for leave to bring in a bill to prevent, for two months, the Spirit Intercourse between Ireland and Great Britain.— He then moved several Resolutions of tbe tendency he had stated, which were agreed to, and the Report was ordered to be received 011 Monday, Tbe Highway Bill was committed, and progress being reported, it was ordered to be recommitted upon Wednes day next. MONDAY, MAY 13. The Honsc resolved itself into a Committee, to take into consideration the Bullion Report.— Mr. VANSITTART, agreeable to notice, brought forward his counter resolutions to those proposed by Mr. Horner.— These were opposed. by Mr M agens, Mr. H. 1 hornton, and Mr. Canning ; the lat- ter of whom concluded a very animated sperch, condemn- ing the whole of Mr. Vansittart's resolutions, and wishing that the Bank would take warding, and adopt of them- selves, as soon . as possible, llie means of enabling lliem to make cash payments ; he moved that the chairman do leave the chair — A division took place on this amendment — Ayes 42— Noes 82.— Majority for the resolutions 40. HOUSE OF COMMONS, TUESDAY, MAY 14. Mr. DUNOAS obtained leave to bring in a bill for making an addition to the salaries of clerks and other charges for offices, in the service of India ; to restore military officers sentenced by courts- mai tial; aiid to authorise the company to take up ships by private contract, in case of unforeseen emergency. Mr. Secretary RY'DER obtained leave to bring in a hill to permit the interchange of the services of the English and Irish Militia respectively. The Report of the Bullion Committee was brought up, when the two first of Mr. Vansittart's Resolutions, after some opposition, were agreed to; and the further consider- ation of the report was then adjourned till to- morrow. WEDNESDAY, MAY 15. Mr. BRAND, in compliance with the wishes of many of his friends, ou account of the discussion as to Bullion not being finished, postponed his motion as to Parliamentary Reform, from this day to an early day iu the ensuing month, hut. be could not name it, as he had to- morrow to go to the country to perform some important duties. Mr. MORRIS obtained leave to bring in a bill to amend the 38th of George the Third, c. 52, to enable Justices to remand prisoners to thc prisons of their respective juris- dictions, till the execution of their sentences. COMMITTEE ON COTTON GOODS. Upon the motion of Mr. ROSE, the House went into a Committee to consider the act laying duties upon coltou wool; aud he therein moved " that an additional duty of one penny be imposed upon every pound of cotton wool im- ported or exported, cxccpt that from our possessions in the East andWest Indies."— Agreed to, and tne Report ordered to be received to- morrow. The House in a Committee to consider the East India Company's Petition, Mr. ROBARTS moved—" That leave be given to bring ill a bill to enable the East India Com- pany to raise a further sum of money upon bond, instead of increasing their capital stock ; and to alter and amend the 47th of bis present Majesty respecting their affairs."— Leave given. Upon the motion of Mr. ROSE, the House went into a Committee upon the act imposing duties on Pot and Pearl Aslies, wherein he moved uTliat a duty of 4s. 8d. be charged upon every bundled weight of pearl and pot ashes, not being the produce of our colonies "— Agreed to, and leave given to bring in the bill. On the motion of Mr POLE, leave was given to bring in a hill to appointCominlssiuners to establish a general system of education of the poor in Ireland, and to regulate the grammar schools. The Timber Duty bill was read a second time, and order- ed to be committed on Monday next. Mr. EusrilNGTON moved for the appointment of Com- missioners to prepare an estimate of the clothing of the militia for the year 1811 : which was agreed to. The remainder of Mr. Vansittart's Resolutions on Ihe Bnliion Report underw ent a discussion of some length ; in the course of which Mr. Thornton stated that he had this day been applied to by a Banker, to give BankTokens for 500 guineas in gold, anil a few days ago, to the amount of 300 in the same way.— This shewed the value of these Tokens. — Mr. Horner proposed several amendments, which were all negatived, and the original Resolutions passed. A remarkably fine cart marc, the property of Mr. Sharpe, miller, at Horsham, died one day last week, and on opening her a sloue, weighing illlis. and mea- suring 17i inches in circumferei ce, was taken from Ihe region of the kidneys. The parts adjoining were in such a slate of modification, that the original situation of the stone could not be ascertained. Fluor volatile alkali has been discovered in France, by M. Sage, lo be of great efficacy when taken inter- nally, in all cases of severe apoplexy. I11 a memoir read to the National Institute, he vouches the experi- ence of 40 years, for its beiug an immediate remedy, if employed on the first appearance of thc disease. The Speaker.— In D'Ewes's Journal, p. 159, we find, lhat in the reign of Queen Elizabeth, the following extraordinary qualifications were deemed necessary to be united in the person and condition of a Speaker of the House of Commons :•— " On the 24th of October, 1597, one Yelverton, a Lawyer, was chosen the Speaker of the House of Commons. YVith an affected modesty he declined that office, oil account of the deformity of his person, and the poverty ot his estate, saying, * he that supplieth this place ought to be a man big and comely, stately, and well spoken ; his voice grave, his carriage majestical, his nature haughty, and his purse plentiful and heavy." This Yelverton was an ancestor of the late celebrated Irish J udge of that name. Swindlers.— Two respectable looking men lately took a house at Eckington, near Pershore; and, from their insinuating appearance and easy manners, they found tradesmen " nothing loath" to furnish their dwelling with every article suitable to the rank they assumed. Many industrious men at Pershore and its vicinily were eager to evince their promptitude in order to give salisfaction lo their exalted neighbours ; and several at Tewkesbury, with characteristic energy, lent their willing aid to deck out the villa al Eckington, which the impostors asserted they had only taken as a temporary residence, preparatory to their purchasing, when opportunity offered, an extensive estate in the rich and picturesque Vale of Evesham, with which they expressed themselves irresistibly enamoured. An upholsterer, in Tewkesbury, sent them goods to a very large amount; aud the clock- maker, china- man, brazier, saddler, & c. all more or less contributed towards the embellishment or conveniencies ofthe house, as did the taylor iu decorating their persons with three new suits But no sooner was the house com- pletely furnished, than the farce was at au end: the would- be gentlemen absconded, taking with them all the moveable goods; whilst a stranger, to whom they had given a bill of sale for an alledged debt, took possession of the remainder, and made preparations for selling off. Having, however, neglected to give the necessary notice to the excise, this aspiring knight of the hammer, who was strongly suspected of being- connected with the gang, was conveyed before a ma- gistrate to attest his qualfication to act as an auctioneer. He represented himself as being Mr. J. Kelly, of known respectability, of London, and produced documents to prove thc property to be his by assignment, declaring himself totally deceived in the persons Of the impostors. But the suspicions as to his real character increasing hy his asseverat ons and more recent conduct, the magis- trates fined him in the full penalty of £ 50, for selling without a licence. As he was not prepared to pay this unexpected demand, distress wis levied upon the goods, time being allowed for his going to London, in order to prove the uprightness of his conduct; but failing to return within Ihe stipulated period, the furniture was ordered to be sold ; and it is much to be regretted, that afler the fine and expenses are defrayed, very little if any will remain for the unfortunate creditors. Tho' the swindlers profited much less by this villainous scheme than they anticipated, many honest tradesmen are considerable sufferers; but such Vigilant measures have been adopted, as to encourage hopes that the principal in this nefarious transaction will speedily ba brougnt to answer for his conduct before a legal tri- bunal. He is a well- knov n character among the run- ners atBow- street; and occasionally passed, at Ecking- ton, by the names of Nayler and VValcheni; and t. ie other went by the names of Neale and North. They were accompanied bv two lads, who called Nayler their father, and Neale iheir uncle. We have been induced to enter thus minutely into the subject, in order to put the public 011 their guard against trusting too lar to specious appearances iu strangers. BANKRUPTS, MAY 11.
