At this season of the year the most prevalent malady is the Scurvy, and indeed no constitution is free from it.— Dr. JOHNSON'S Essence WILL be found the most salutary and efficacious SPRING PHYSIC ever yet administered, as it pos- sesses the peculiar and important advantage of being com- posed of materials PURELY VEGETABLE.

All of them act with double iniury not only in destroying the sen face which they were expected lo beautify, but in poisoning the habit, and causing a fatal neglect of the gieut preservative of life itself. A blotch or a pimple, however offensive tothe eye, gives timely notice of ihe impure state of the fluids, and of the kind efforts of nature to expel the noxious matter.— Ought not these efforts to be assisted by salutary measures, and by a judicious plan of diet and regimen, instead of throwing back the impuiity into tbe blood, and thus converting the very means of healtii into the seeds of infection and disease ? Besides, lead or mer- cury are the chief ingredients in all those boasted cosmetics, and being absorbed through the skin, cannot fail to occasion cramps, spasms, convulsions, colics, and tbe gigantic train of ueivous and consumptive complaints. We earnestly re- commend, therefore, the use of Dr. Johnson's Vegetable Es- sence, to all those who are troubled with pimples and other scorbutic eruptions.

In the practical part of this work, the Author has shewn much correctness and clearness of elucidation in arranging the ptinciples of treatment iu the various diseases. The candid and liberal will freely al ow to this publication its due portion of merit; jealousy, however, is not less Common among practitioners than it was formerly supposed to be among females, and Dr. Reece must not expect wholly to escape its fangs. Those, too, who are courting a smuggled admission into Ihe College, mil very probably think this volume famishes opoortuu/ tu for accelerating their learned and honourable purpose. ' Iheir opinions then may be considered as a k'y lo t heir secret views. As to our own opinion, we must say ihat we have rather fallen short than exceeded in the commendation to which we considered this work entitled." From the Critical. Review of February, 1811. " New theories, by promoting discussion, and exciting controversy, serve to energise the intellectual faculties lit men, and to prevent tbe mind from becoming a sort of Le- thean pool of indifference and apathy. Whatever may be thought of the peculiar theory of Dr. Reece, we believe that the formulae which are contained in this volume will be found useful, and the practical directions ill general sensible and judicious."

Since I wrote to you 011 the 27th of June, tbe enemy havfc withdrawn the great force which they had iu the neighbour- hood of Badajoz. Lieut Gen, Sir S. Cotton reconnoitred, with a part of the cavalry, along the Xevora and tbe Guadiaua, as far as Montigo, on tbe 2d iiist. and found 110 troops excepting a small body of infantry and cavalry at Montigo ; aud near Badajoz the cavalry belonging to the garrison. By all accounts tbe army of Portugal are on the right of the Guadiana, between Montauchcs and Merida, keeping a small post at Montigo; and the army of the South on the left of that river, exteudiug their left' towards Zafra.— The enemy have withdrawn from Badajoz their train of artillery with which tbe place was taken, and have sent it to the southward.— A part of General Bonnet's troops, whose evacuation of the Asturias has been confirmed, has gone to Leon: aud 1 have a report fioin General Silviera, ofthe 25th of June, stating that the enemy hail, 011 Ihe 19th, evacuated Astorga. By accounts from Valtadolid, it ap- pears that Marshal Bessieres had quitted thai place on the 12th, with all the troops he could collect, aud went to Rio Seco, from whence he moved 011 the 15th towards Benavente. The Guerilla force appears to be increasing in numbers, activity, and boldness, in all the northern parts of Spain. 1 have no authentic accounts of Gen. Blake's movemeuts since tbe 27th of June, ou which day his head quarters were at Alosno, in Ihe Condado de Niebla, and Ins advanced guard, under General Ballasteros, at El Cerro. ADMIRALTY- OFFICE, JULY 23. Sir J. Saumarez lias transmitted a letter from Captain Pater, of Ills Majesty's ship Cressy, giving an account of an attack made off' Hielm Island, on the 5th inst. by a Danish flotilla of 17 gun- boats and ! 0 heavy row boats, ou a convoy under the protection of tbe ships and vessels named in the margin*. The enemy were defeated without the loss of any of the convoy, and four of Ihe Danish gun boats were captured, mounting each one long 24- pounder t and four brass howitzers, and having on board together ' 120 men, * Cressy, Defence, Dictator, Sheldrake sloop, and Bruizer gun vessel. \ WEDNESDAY, JULY 24. Advices have Ircen received from Charleston to the 23d ult. and from New York fo the 27th ult. Mr. Macon, son to the Member of Congress of that name, is said to have been appointed bv Mr. Madison to pro- ceed to this country on a particular mission, supposed to relate to the affair of the Little Belt and President. No account had reached Charleston, or New Yor , of the arriv il of Mr. Pinckney or Mr. Foster. The seciet transactions of Congress, relative to the occupation of West Florida, have been made public. It appears, that the report of Mr. Morier having remonstrated againsl that measure was correct. He was answered, that the United States eutertained no unfriendly inten- tions towards Spain: and that the American Minister here had been authorised to give explanations upon the subject to our Government. The American Papers in the interest of what is called the British party, continue to assert, that the statement relative to the affair be- tween the Little Belt and President is incorrect; but upon this subject some further evidence, and that from a person onboard the latter vessel at the time, has transpired, in proof of Capt. Rogers having been the aggressor. Our letter from Falmouth, by this morn- ing's Post, says : — " During tbe time tbe Ann packet was at New York, Ihe President frigate cariic in. Two English seamen onboard her, perceiving the packet at no great distance eudcavoiirer! to get on board her, by jumping overboard in the night; onu only succeeded ( the other being drowned), and be proves to belong to this ( Falmouth) neighbourhood, and is now oil hoard the Experiment guard- ship, at this port, to be examined by Capt Slaele We understand he reports, that several British seamen ore on board the President frigate, and that he is positive the American frigate fired the first shot at the Little Belt." The reinforcements already arrived at Lisbon, those on their way, and those embarking under o dert, amount to no less than IS, 0( 10 In a very sho t time Lord Wellington will have 14 regiments of cavalry, amounting to no less than between 5000 and 6000 rank and file.— The new levy going forward in Portugal will consist of 20,000 men. The cause assigned by an intelligent Officer why we have lost in the battles in the Peninsula more than a due proportion ofOfficers co npared to privates is, because Officers of battalion, particularly, wear cocked hats and a feather, while the men wear caps- The Officers also wear blue great coats, and the privates grey. In the French army the Officers are ouly to be distin- guished, when near them, by their epaulets and the fineness of their cloth. It is on this account that the Officers in the English army are picked out, as the difference is known to every French soldier. Tlier." is another circumstance also worthy of remark, whico is, that the Commanding Officers, Majors, and Adjutants, are mounted iu our service, hut the French Officers of the same rank, though allowed horses, appear in line dismounted, except the Chief of Battalion, and iu cases of advanced age. Gen. Nightingale is returned to England, in order to proceed to India on the general slaff of the King's Army in Bengal. Bonaparte is said to be so desirous of increasing his family, that he insists on the Empress producing twins I and the Legislative Assembly, no doubt, will, at his request, pass a decree to that purpose. In the gossiping parties of the Parisians, it is whis- pered that the young King of Rome has a clubfoot I This morning Richard Armitage and C. Thomas, late Clerks in Ihe Bank, were executed in the Old Bailey, pursuant to their sentence, for repeated forgeries on that Corporation. The former, from, severe illness, was under the necessity of being supported by a friend while ascending, and during his continuance on, the scaffold. He was attended by a Clergyman, to whose pious admonitions he appeared to pay becoming at- tention. The latter, who was a Catholic, was attended by a Priest of that persuasion, and conducted himself with apparent fortitude. Near to the spot that gave birth to the poet Arm- strong, on the banks of the Liddal, in Roxburghshire, there is now living a man, in his 97th year, in the full enjoyment of all his faculties; his name is Oliver, He has a small farm from the Duke of Buccleugh, which he cultivates with his own hand. His appearance is that of a man of 60. His face is ruddy, his teeth white and perfect, his eye clear and animated, and his person robust and erect. A few days ago he performed a journey ou horseback, of upwards of 80 miles, without stopping, and, except in mounting, felt no inconvenience from riding.— He married about eight years ago his third wife. On Wednesday, as two horses were at plough near I Norwich, a llight of bees alighted on the animals, and | not being suffered to swarm in their usual manner, became provoked, and slung the horses in so violent a| manner, that one died the following day in excruciating I agonies; the other was preserved by applying cloths, I dipped ia a solution of salt of tartar in cold water. LONDON. FlUDAY, JULY 23. The intelligence of the allied army in Portugal going cto cantonments, 1B repeated in most of the private letters received by the last mail from Lisbon! and as 1 he French are throw ing up fortifications, the opinion { hat there will be no general action fi; r some time, '"' ppears now to prevail. It is r. ot probable, however, Ifirit the Freuch will continue long in their present position, as the ground which they occupy is said tn be extremely unhealthy at this season of the jear ; and besides, the active operations of the Spanish corps, which threaten to cut off their communication, will render their supplies very uncertain. It seems, there- fore, that they must scon determine either to advance or break up. A mail has arrived from Anholt, but it lins not brought much intelligence. The most remarkable cir- cumstance is a statement in a Copenhagen paper, that the English brig Safeguard, of ten 18- pound carronades, had been taken by a Danish flotilla, after a smart action, in which the brig lost one man, and the flotilla suffered severely. Bands of robbers, it seems, infest the great roads of Wallachia and Moldavia, and interrupt all communications. A Russian General fell into their hands on the 7lh of June, oil his route to Bucharest. According to the latest accounts from Constantinople, the most, vigorous preparations were making for tlie prosecution of the war. Several foreigners of distinction have landed at Har- wich, who are described in some letters as Poles, while in others they are called Russians, and are stated to have brought dispatches from Petersburgh. Of what- ever country they may he natives, they are, we un- derstand, subjects of the Emperor Alexander. We cau- not learn that they have brought dispatches, hut it is not unlikely that their visit has some public object. A Russian nobleman is still said to be on board Sir James Saumarez's fleet, preparing for a passage to Eng- land; while Roraanzow, the partizan of France, is stated to he removed fron the Ministry, to make way for an arrangement more friendly to this country. Accounts from Petersburgh of the 19th ult. state, that a fire broke out at Croustadt ou tbe 4th, which destroyed 49 wooden houses. A very busy interchange of communication seems to have taken place between the American Minister at Paris and the Charge d'Aflaires of the same Govern- ment resident in London. ' 1 he Adelaide carte! from Morlaix has brought over two American genthmen with dispatches for the latter, the contents of which are said to be of considerable importance. It is not likely that their purport has fully transpired; but an opinion pretty generally prevailed, founded probably as much on general speculation as on facts, that the Freuch Government was anxious, in the present critical juncture of ailairs between Great Britain ai d America, to cult vate a good understanding w ith the latter Power. With this view, it is said, the French Government has released the American ships and cargoes detained, aud under sequestration, since the first of November last. A letter from Paris, on the same subject, goes still fur- ther, and asserts " lhat some American vessels, which • were captured by the Fiench, aud carried into St. Sebastian's, in 1809 and 1810, among which is the Camilla, of New York, have been also restored." By accounts from the interior of France, it appears, that great discontents prevail respecting the violence of the new conscription of youths, from 14 to 16 years old. A petition has been presented from Messrs. Waithman, Miller, and other persons, who were speculators in the new buildings at Snow- hill, stating that they were suf- ferers in that concern to the amount of £^ 3,000, and praying lhat they might be reimbursed, whatever por- tion the Corporation might deem just and liberal, from the funds allowed by Parliament for the purposes ol the Temple Bar improvements. Tbe Bunk of Messrs. La Costa, Clarke and Co. al Cbeitsey, was, on Wednesday last, robbed of Bank of England and other notes to the amount of upwards of -£ 4000. The robbery was not discovered till the clerks went to business on Thursday morning, aud had occa- sion for the notes in the iron closet. It was at the same time found that the book containing the numbers of the notes had been stolen, to prevent their being traced. The perpetrators bad entered the Bank bv means of picklock keys— had opened five doors, and had fastened tbem again on their leaving it, to prevent an ear. y discover) of tha robbery. The Epistle from the jearly meeting of the Quakers, held in London, by adjournments, from 22d to 31st of the fifth month, 1811, inclusive, to the Quarterly and Monthly meetings, in Great Britain, Ireland, aud else- where, commences with stating the religious deliber- ations of tbe yearly meeting, and proceeds, with much pious energy, to exhort the youug people of their society to the practice of Christian duties. It likewise ferveutly exhorts those who have passed the meridian of life, to a steady, uniform example. The Epistle then goes on iu the following words: " We have received at this yearly meeting an acceptable Epistle from Iielaud, and from each of tbe North American yearly meetings. The latter continue steadily occupied in endeavouring not only lo build up our own society iu Chris- tian practice, but to diffuse the benefits of their Christian charily beyond our limits. Two of them, namely, those of Maryland and Carolina, have lately air- tin become advocates with their respective legislators for their oppressed brethren of the African race ; and, though yet in vain, not without discouragement to further intercession; and three of t hem, those of New York, Pennsylvania, and Maryland, are still attentive to the benevolent object of attempting to civilize their Indian neighbours."

A dispatch, of which the following is an extract, was bn the 23d inst. received at the Earl of Liverpool's Office, addressed to his lordship by Lieut.- General Viscount Wellington, dated Quinta de St. Joao, July llth, mil. The enemy continued in the positions reported in my dispatch of the 4th hist till tlie 7th, when they moved a tar^ e body of cavaliy and about two battalions of infantry from Montigo, towards the Xevora, and from thence upon Villa de Key, Le Boca, and Albuquerque.—' The object of this movement was apparently to cut oil' our detachments employed in observing the enemy on that side ; ill which, however, thev did not succeed, Major Cocks hating- Cctired with all bis detachments upon St. Viueente, still keeping communication open w ith ArronCl. es and Portalegre— The enemy's troops retired fiom Albuquerque on the 8th, and Major Cocks again entered that town with his parties 011 the same day — The army of Portugal are again in the same position on the right ofthe Guadiaua which they occupied w hen I addressed your lordship 011 the 4th inst. tielleral Blake made an attempt to obtain possession of Niebla, ou the night of the 30th of June, in which place the enemy had a garrison of uboht 300 infantry. 1 am sorry to say this attempt failed, and he remained before the place till the 2d inst. and then retired towards the Guadiana — On the 6th, two divisions of infantry, aud the cavalry of the 5th army, under the Coude de Penile Villamur, were cross- ing ( he Gundiana, 011 a bridge constructed for them at St. Lucar, by Colonel Austin.— The artillery was embarked at Ayamonte, and General Ballasteros, with the advanced guard, remained upon the river St. Pedro.— It appeared to be General Blake's intention to embark bis troops for Cadiz, but neither Geneial Castauos nor 1 have heard from him since he marched from Juramenha, 011 the 18th of June. Ill the north, Marshal Bessieres had returned again to Valladolid from Benavente ; and inthe end of the month of June the enemy assembled at and iu the neighbourhood of Valladolid a considerable body of troops; Gen Bonnet, however, still remained iu the neighbourhood of Leon and Benavenle, with the troops under his command ; and 1 have ieeeived from General Silviera a report oV tbe defeat of the French in au attack made upon a Spanish detachment from the array in Gallicia, in front of Astorga, 011 the 25th ult. The Guerillas likewise continue their operations, and besides the alarm given to Valladolid, 011 the 15th ult. Don Julian gave a similar alarm to Salamanca, 011 the 29th ult. but a considerable party of Guerillas, belonging todifferent chiefs, which had taken a convoy at Pcnaranda, were after wards surprised on the 30th of June, and dispersed, about 200 having beeu killed, wounded, and made prisoners. President to an Address from the town of Kev, haven. The purport of the Address was to complain of the te- slrictions of the commerce with Great Britain, and to request lhat the Legislature might be convened for the purpose of establishing a free trade. The President's answer is temperate aud soothing ; he does not venture to affirm, that ti e Berlin and Milan decrees were ipso facto repealed : he only slates that Bonaparte '* had declared that his decrees were revoked ;" but as to their real abolition, he says farther—" Whether the conduct of the French Government has been such, and will be such as to satisfy the authorized expectations of the United Stales, is to be ascertained by future in- formation," It is now said, in soir. e well informed circles con- nected with Government, that his Majesty's Ministers are disposed to act a temperate part with respect to the United Slates, and not to promote hostilities, unless the honour of the British flag should require it. The opi- nion cf an immediate war with the republic, which so currently prevailed, is in a great degree to be attribut- ed to the misapprehension that Sir Joseph Yorke's squadron was to be stationed off the coast of the United States. Some recent accounts from France slate, that Bona- parte is anxious to induce the Americans to believe that the Berlin and Milan Decrees are really Withdrawn, and that in consequence he has ordered ait the ships and cargoes detained since the 1st November to be released. In the event of tbe King's death, Parliament must, by law, meet immediately; and if it were adjourned only from Saturday to Monday, and the King died ou Saturday night, the Parliament would meet on the Sunday.— fide act of settlement, Gtli Queen Anne, c. 7. « . 5. When King George II. suddenly and most unex- pectedly died on the morning of the 25th October, 1760, a few members of the House of Commons met on Sunday the 26th, but the Lord Steward was not in the way to swear them iu ; and, on Monday the 87th, they were prorogued by proclamation.

The Bulletin of yesterday was as follows :— " Windsor Castle, July 28'— His Majesty is nearly as he was yesterday." There was great agitation througout the metropolis all yesterday. It was known that his Majesty's malady had increased, and that all the Royal Family had been sent for to Windsor iu the greatest haste.— The Queen's Council had been assembled suddenly, and the most gloomy ideas were entertained. The Ministers all re- mained in town, a Council was held, and Couriers were 111 good order, highly pleased and gratified.— Thus formed, and established, a Society, which it is hoped may long continue a benefit and blessing to Ihe town and neighbourhood. Early on Monday morning last, a female child was found in the garden of Mr. J. Chettor, of Shav. bury Heath, wrapped in a flannel petticoat, with a blue cloth about ils bead. A reward of 5 guineas is offered by the overseers of the parish for the discovery of the person guilty of this inhuman offence.— See Advt.

The Bulletins of yesterday and this day are as follow: " Windsor Castle. July 25— His Majesty continues nearly in tbe same state " " July 27.— His Majesty is not better to- day." The King's paroxysm continued down lo a lale hour - last night, without the least symptom of diverging, or abatement. It is found extremely difficult hy his Ma- jesty's Physicians to administer Ihe necessary quantity of subsistence for the support of the bodily frame, in its present declining state — By the use of opiates his Ma- jesty obtains s'eep, but apparently without refreshment. The Hovenzoilo has arrived at Portsmouth from Corunna, from whence she sailed ou the 17th July. Her letters stale that a quantity of provisions and stores had beeu seut lo the army under Santocildes. The advices from Astorga are to the llth July. By them we learn, that the French General Bonnet had shut himself up in Leon, with 8000 men. Santocildes, with 9000 Spauiaids, was on Ibe outside of the v. alls, expecting the arrival of Perlion with 4000 men from Portes, and 3000 from the neighbourhood of Oviedo. It was calculated that they would arrive before July 16th, when au attempt was meditated to dislodge Bon- net, if he did not retire from Leon before that time to Ciudad Rodrigo, in which direction, from the flat cha- racter of the country, his superiority in cavalry would give him great advantage. The Maria, a neutral vessel, arrived at Dover, yes- terday, from Dieppe, the passengers by which bring a report, that there is a camp forming at Boulogne for 40,000 men, who are to invade England. This is, in- deed, " a weal: invention of the enemy." We believe that the camp may be forming and the report circulat- ed in France, hut hope lhat from England not a man the less will be scut to Portugal, on this account. It will become the Admiralty, however, to increase the number of gun- brigs and useful cruizers in the narrow channel stationsfor it is uot unlikely, that some sud- den insult of our coast may be intended, iu order lo produce a clamour against the campaign iu the Penin- sula, aud furnish a topic to the friends of Bonaparte here, who are ever recommending tbe cessation of every effort that really checks his career. Seven ships from Holland, provided with licences uuder the sigu manual of Napoleon, arrived yesterday. The cargoes consist wholly of cheese. These licences are an mdulgence wliich Bonaparte occasionally grants, iu order to enable him to collect bis reveuues in that impoverished country. Two other licensed ships arrived off tbe Custom House yesterday from Holland, wilh wines, brandy, wheat, & c. They are lo receive iu exchange hides, indigo, and colonial produce. After the wheat harvest, it is understood, that several ships wilh similar cargoes, would sail under licenses from different porl3 both of France and Holland. It appears that Lord Wellington's expectations of important advantages from the Guerilla warfare will uot be disappointed. We have heard of the gallant achievement of Miua in Navarre, who altacked and beat a strong French force at the very gates of Vitloria, Another Guerilla leader has intercepted a convoy in the environs of Ciudnd Hodrigo. A force fiom Gallicia has descended into Leon, and the Guerillas scour the country even to the very gates of Madrid. A letter from formula, dated July 15, says, General Santocildes has had two or three affairs with the French during their retrea', and has taken 3000 prisoners, and killed about 500 We are daily expecting accounts of an action between him and Bonnet, who is endeavour ing to join the French army 011 the frontiers of Por- tugal.

O11 Friday, the 5th inst, the Commissioners of Holy- head harbour bad a meeting at Holyhead, Sir Robert Williams iu the Chair ; when, after disposing of some, prev ious business, they adjourned to the harbour, where an immense crowd of spectators were assembled to witness Ihe laying of the tirst stone of the new Pier, hy ; Sir Robert Williams, uuder the direction of Mr. brown the resident engineer. Immediately as the stone was laid, discharges of cannon both from the shore and tho the day. The Bulletin of yesterday was by 110 means calculated to allay the apprehensions entertained. We understand that opiates have either lost their eltect, or that if they do produce sleep, Ihey leave his Majesty extremely low when he awakes. They have, therefore, it is said, been iu a great measure discontinued. It is to be remarked, . that none of Ihe Bulletins of last week, except Monday's, speak of his Majesty hav- ing obtained any sleep. ' 1 he glandular swellings are understood to be more painful, and to render it ex- tremely difficult for sufficient nourishment to be con- veyed into the stomach. The bodily health has for soiuR time been impaired, and tiio paroxysms are almost incessant, though their violence is not so great. But this circumstance has not been viewed by tee physicians as any flattering symptom. The heat of the weather is very unfavourable. I he system becomes daily more and more exhausted, and v. e greatly fear ! there is too much reason for entertaining the most melancholy expectations. ' flie following is the Bulletin received this morning : , Windsor Cattle, July 29—" The King tins bad several hours sleep iu the course of the night, but the symptoms of his Majesty's disorder remain tlie same." The Auholt mail arrived yesterday furnishes a variety of intelligence from different quarters ill the Baltic, ' the accounts from St Petersburgh by this conveyance are to the 4th inst. They fully confirm ihe previous opinion that doubt no longer existed of a good understanding between Russia and Great Britain. ' I he arrival of his Majesty's ship Fisgunrd, with the Portuguese Ambassador 011 board, is mentioned amongst other things, and that the approach of that ship was hailed with repealed salutes from shore. It was not less flattering lo the officers of his Majesty's ' ship, who were greeted with the most cordial welcome.— The tirst proof of Rnrsia's friendly intentions towards I Gnat Britain is to be the neutralizing two Russian ports. through w hich all communications rue to be made, and in shipping 111 the harbour, announced the commencement which all ships destined for Russia are first to appear lo i 0f litis most desirable undertaking, which, together £ a" be , immtnd P' 0Ceed | thV' 10Ut3 i the V* ™ ?' had * P'easius The most recent letters from Sweden, arc dated the 19th 1 and. gratifymg ettecl.- r- When the lmpoitance of this i. ist. and one of which communicates the following:—"! national structure is considered, ss affording both faci- ship is a member ofthe House of Commons, and hav- building, where the enemy had destroyed them.

The object which Russia has beeu struggling to obtain from France, was neutrality. Fiance objects 011 her old principle— she will have no neutrals; and therefore Great Britain is to allbrd assist- ance lo Russia. Another aicount says, that the intercourse between this cotinfry and Russia is to receive 110 interruption during the present year; that it is to be conducted under neutral llags, aud on the conditions required by the Imperial L'kase proclaimed at the conclusion of the last year. The continental system is to be a dead letter in the Russian territories.

Several clauses follow, by which many points are settled, which have either heretofore been subjects of dispute or of oppression, Ol which required regulation : its the payment of double tolls in the same day : tbe tolls to be paid by coaches and other carriages affixed to waggons ; the prevention of compounding for tolls on overv. cfght, exccpt 111 particular cases ; the checking of all evasions of weigh- ing engines ; the punishment of the insolence and brutality of toll- collectors; and ninny others, not necessary hereto mention. The clauses regarding parochial highways will, it is to be hoped, tend greatly to improve the former system ; author- izing the raising of. larger sums where necessary, by which the expeuce of indictments maybe prevented; amending the regulations regarding the rate of composition and labour, iu lieu of statute duty; and enforcing a- stricter examination of tbe surveyors' accounts. But there is 110 part of the bill which, in Ihe judgment of your Committee, is of more importance, than the clauses regarding foot- paths along the sides of the highways; no general law having hitherto been enacted respecting either their form- ation, or their protection afterwards, although the import- ance uf furnishing foot passengers with that desirable accommodation can hardly be too highly appreciated, more I especially since the progressively increasing enclosure of the country tends every day to lessen the convenience they have hitherto enjoyed, when il was ill a more open state 2. The next bill, which it is proposed to submit tothe consideration of ihe House, regards the important subject of wheels; and it is drawu up 1101 only with a view of preventing various evasions of the law regarding wheels, but also to enforce the use of cylindrical 111 preference tu conical w heels. A sketch of an act for that purpose will be found in Ihe Appendix, which it is to he hoped will he presented as early as possible in the courser of tbvmisniiig Session. Regarding the superiority of tbe cylindrical over the conical wheels, your Committee beg ti> refer to former Reports upon that interesting subject. 3 It will also be proper, in ihe judgment of your Committee, to prepare a third hill, in which every other regulation which may still be necessary for Ihe improve- ment of our highway and turnpike laws " in general uiaybe I inserted A variety of clauses, which have been recoil.- I m'ended for that purpose tp the attention of vourt'ommitue j from various intelligent quarters, vill lie found in Ihe ' Appendix. They are annexed to this Report, lhat H e ' Members may have an opportunity uf considering I hem ! during the Recess, and of judging bow far tlw- y are entilied i to attention, tt' these proposed laws should receive the sanction of the ' Legislature, it would then be- expedient to combine the old and new regulations into.. one general code, divided into two branches; one regarding lie highwgj's, end the other regarding turnpike roads. That uud-. rtaking, however, cannot be successfully attempted, until the new regulations have been netcd upon for the space of two or three years ; in the course of which their effects would probably be ascertained, if a general code were to be attempted sooner, it would probably be executed in a defective manner, and would require constant amendment. Your Committee therefore are of opinion, that it will be necessary to proceed Willi gradual steps, in perfecting so extensive a system, from the difficulty of enacting general regulations adapted ( o an object which embraces every parish, every farm, aud almost every field in the kingdom. The difficulty is much inrrcared by peculiar circum- stances, by which ttie virions districts are respectively distinguished— one district lias a wet climate, amuhtr a dry one; one district has a light soil, another u deep one; one dislncl is hilly and mountainous, another flat mid low • one district has good materials. for making roads, another may be deficient iu these important articles ; one district is populous, and has a great concourse upou its roads; another is but thinly inhabited, and has but few travellers Il requires therefore much attention to enact general laws lhat place, which is every day increasing. On the day : genius coast, this first step towards its completion must 1 " be hailed with exultation by every liierid to humanity and the eomme ce of the counln. The last Session of Parliament is tbe longest upoa record.

The many important advantages to be derived from amending the highway s and turnpike loads of the kingdom, need hardly be dwelt on. Every individual in it would thereby find his comforts mntermlly increased, and his interest greatly promoted. By the improvement ot our roads, every branch if our agricultural, commercial, and manufacturing industry, would be uiaterSdly benefited : every article brought to market would be diminished In price: the number of horses would he so much reduced, that by these and other retrenchments ( as appears from a former Report, ordered to lie printed 2d may, 1809, Appen dix 18), Ihe expence of five millions would be annually saved to the Public. The expeuce of repairing roads, and the wear and tear of carriages and horses, would be essen- tially diminished ; and thousands of acres, the produce of public and private advantages, effecting that great object,— the which is wasted iu feeding unnecessary hoises," v. oold he devoted to the production of food for iaan. Ill short, the which would result from proveuieist of our high- ways and turnpike roaus, are incalculably though from j them ihcil- being spread over 0 wide surface, and available various ways, such advantages will not hi those derived from other sources of improvement restricted aud less general uature, wounded: we expect further particulars in a day ur two About sixty vessels had assembled at Hano Bay, on the 13th inst. and were lo sail 011 the tirst fair wind, under convoy of the Courageux.

The youngest had a considerable draught, but the oldest afterwards, owing to the unpalatable taste, took only a little; it unhappily however proved fatal to both, the youngest having died the same night in the utmost agony, and the other in two or three days afterwards, in a state of great distress— to the inexpressib e grief, as may well be imagined, of the disconsolate mother. A vessel, named the Constellation, to sail against wind and tide, has been completed at Bristol. She lias one mast of iron, with an upright windlass afiixe; l to the same ; her sails, which are of a peculiar construction, when in motion, can weigh her anchor, work three pieces of mechanism, ( two projecting from her sides, and one in the centre,) two pumps, and upon occasion, two sweeps of ' 24 feet. Her canvas is also extended or shortened in an instant, aud, if required, the mast, with all its appen. lagcs, is as quickly lowered. She has neither blocks nor running rigging, except a fore and aft stay, and cables. In fact, she is a complete life a-; well as packet boat, and calculated to sail upon as well as before the wind. Lord King means lo persevere in his purpose, not withstanding the Bill now pending ; but he means to try the question, by process oi law, only against two of his tenants, who happen to be Bank Directors. On Wednesday last, at Tewkesbury, a melancholy accident attended the very reprehensible practice of leaving guns loaded in insecure situations, A little boy and girl, children of one Drinkwater, going into the house of a neighbour, named lnsa. lt, residing in the church- yard, in that town, the Ivy found a gun, which he took hold of, not knowing it was toade. i, and point- ing at his sister, playsomely said, he would shoot her. Unsuspicious of tha consequences, he pulled the trigger, the piece ox, lodcd, and, being almost close to the girl's head, the whole contents entered a little above the ear, shattered her skull in a most dreadful manner, and of course killed her on the spot! A coroner's held on the body the following ( lay, aud a accidental death returned.— It is much to be deplored, after the distressing events that so repeatedly occur, thro' the heedlessness of people using lire arms, that more care is not evinced in placing loaded guns out of the reach of children and others who know not that they are charged GEXV1NE COTTON GOODS.

The Militia Interchange bill was read a third time- and On tbe order of Ihe day bents read, for agreeing to Ihe Amendments made by the Commons in Ihe Gold Coin bill, the amendments were read, and severally agreed to. On ihe motion for sending a message to the Commons, to acquaint them with the same, the Earl of LAUOERDALF. said, this bill must have originated in one or two reasons. The noble loid, who originally intiodueed the bill, had slated, that another noble lord had adopted a measure with regard to his tenants, in consequence of which measure he had thought it necessary to bring the present bill before the House; and Ministers at that time decidedly reprobated the measure. They had been induced, however, to support it from the conduct of Lord King ; but it was somewhat strange, that the bill had been altered so as to make the law similar to what it was supposed to be before this decision was given. He could shew to their lordships tbat this bill cave to their tenants no relief whatever from a call of their landlords for payment of their rents, in cash; for although it will prevent the landlord from proceeding by distress, yet all his other legal re- medies were left open to him as before. It had been said that this bill was intended to check the rapacity of land- lords; but their judgments of the. difference between gold end Bank- notes must be guided by the rise in price of coin. It was capable of mathematical demonstration, that the rise of the price of coin was not the cause of the difference between that and notes; but that the cause of this diffetence was the depreciation of the notes themselves. This bill would put the cierlitors throughout the whole king dom into tne hands of the Bank Directois and the Managers of Country Banks, and would establish them into a sort of legislature to oblige them to take what they pleased. The bill enacts, that a landlord or auy creditor iu fact must take less than by law they are entitled to ; neither did it mention a definite sum less; tbat was left to the discretion of the Bank Directors and the Managers of Country Banks. He considered this measure as calculated to do much evil, and no good ; for it would increase the numbei both of Hank of England and Country Rank- notes in circulation.— The liarl of LIVERPOOL said, he had joined in considering the present measure as unnecessary when it was first proposed, because he did not believe lhat the example of Lord King would be followed by any one. But the question was totally altered, by the mode in which it was opposed by some of their loid tbips. It then no longer remained to be considered as an in- sulated fact; but as ihe transaction of an individual counten- anced and supported by many noble lords in that House, It was solely an act of the Sovereign power to make gold or silver, of a certain weight and fineness, money. But the sovereign power could mahe any thing else money; and whether it was gold, silvi r, copper, iron, or lealhei, it was alone the sovereign act of the state.—{ Hear, hear! from Lord Stanhope j— Gold, as gold, had certainly become more valuable than before; but not as guineas, until it is melted down, consequently its increase of value is merely as gold. Every one whom lie had heard speak on Ibis subject, had declared that they would not have acted as Loid Kit £ had done, how- ever much they might affect to approve of his conduct. It was strange then that they should support it. But they knew practically, which was worth a whole volume of theoretical remarks, that Bank- paper is not depreciated. About the over- issue of the Bank, the noble lord had said nothing which could convince him that there was such an issue as was inconsistent with cairying on the agricultural, commer- cial, and other pursuits of thc countiy. He did believe, that the attempt which had been made to produce an artificial depreciation of Bank paper, had been frustrated by this measure. He ceitainly thought Ihe circulation before 179lS, was the best; but having departed from it, he thought it would hi next to insanity to return in the present state of Europe and the work).— The Earl of LAUDERDALE stioitly explained.— Earl STANHOPE lelt it his duly to give the noble lord, who had just explained, an answer which would sdence him forever—( A laugh! J. — He was right in considering this measure as a legislative hint to Lord King: it was so; and to all those who had approved of his conduct, but had shirked following his example, because they would not be cursed by the country. This measure was to prevent any noble lord from taking X50 from bis tenant, and paying foi equal value to his coachmaker ,£ 40. That noble loid had paid his bill to one of his tenants, in notes, only a day or two before he gave them notice that he would only receive notes at a depreciation. But this measure was more than a legisla- tive hint to him, it was meant as a " John Kiel's broad hint" to him. He did not know if tbe noble Lord ( Lauderdale) had been bred at Oxford, because there lie would have heard whal John Kiel's broad hint meant. This John Keil was a trouble- some impudent fellow ; and a fellow student of his was telling another that he had been much annoy d by him , " but," said he, " I gave him a broad hint."—" What was lhat ?" said the other; " Why, I took the fellow by the shoulders, and kicked him down stairs!"—" Now," continued Loid S. " that is a John Kiel's broad hint." He did not, however, consider this as a sufficient bill ; in many cases it would do mischief. A message was then ordered to be sent to the Commons, • o acquaint them, that their lotdship3 had agreed to their amendments, without any amendment. WEDNESDAY, JULY 54. FEO It 06 AT ION OF PARLIAMENT. The LORD CHANCELLOR read the following Speech of the Lords Commissioners to both Houses of Parlia- ment :— My Lords nnd Gentlemen, His Royal Highness the PRINCE RCCENT, acting in Ihe flame and on the behalf of his Majesty, lias commanded us to signify to you the satisfaction with which he finds himself enabled to relieve you from your attendance in Parliament, after the long and laborious duties of the Session. We are particularly directed to express his approbation of the wisdom and firmness which you have manifested in enabling his Royal Highness to continue tbe exertions of this country in thecaus of our allies, and to prosecute the war with increased; activity and vigour.— Your determined pet severance in a system of liberal aid to the brave and loyal nations of the Peninsula has progressively augmented their means and spirit of resistance, while the humane attention which you have paid to the suffer- ings of the inhabitants of Portugal, under the unexampled cruel- ty of the enemy, hasconfiimed the alliance by new ties of affection, arid cannot fail to inspire additional zeal and ani- mation in tbe maintenance of the common cause.— His Royal Highness especially commands us to declure his cordial con- currence in the measures which you have adopted for im proving the interna! security and tnilitaiy resources of the United Kingdom.— For these impoitaut purposes you have wisely provided, by establishing a system for tbe annual sup. ply of the regular aiuiy, and lor the intetchange of the Miliiias of Great Britain and Ireland; aud his Royal High- ness has the satisfaction of informing you, that the voluntary real which has already been manifested upon this occasion, has enabled him to give immediate operation to an airange- ment, bv which tbe union and mutual interests of Great Britain and Ireland may be more effectually cemented aud improved. G< nth men of the House of Commons, His Royal Highness commands us to thank you in the name and on behalf of his Majesty, for the liberal supplies which you bave furnished for every btauch of the public service.— His Royal Highness has seen with pleasure the readiness with which you have applied the separate means of Great Britain to the financial relief of belaud at the present moment; and derives much satisfaction from perceiving that you have been able to accomplish this object with so little additional burthen upon the resources of this part of the United Kingdom. The manner in which you have taken into consideration the con- dition of the Irish Revenue has met with Ins Royal Highness's approbation ; and his Royal Highness commands us to add, that, be looks with confidence to ttie advantage which may be derived from the attention of Parliament having been given to this important subject. My Lords and Gentlemen, His Royal Highness commands ns to congratulate you upon tbe reduction of the Island ol Mauiitius. This lict and most important colony of France has bccu obtained with inconsider- able loss, and its acquisition must materially coiitiibute to the security of tbe British comineice and possessions in that quarter W the world.— The successes which have crotvued his Majesty's arms during the present campaign, under the dis- tinguished command .> f Lieut.-(- Jen. Lord Vis. Wellington, are most important to the interests and glorious to the i liaructer of tbe countiy. His Royal Highness waimly participates in all tiie sentiments w hich have bteumeited by those successes, and concur-; in the just applause winch you have bestowed upon the skill, prudence, and intrepidity so conspicuously displayed in obtaining them — It affords the greatest satis faction to his Royal llighuets to reflect that, should it please Divine Providence to restore his Majesty lo the ardent praveis and wishesof his Royal Highness and of his Majestv's people, his Royal Highness will be enabled to lay before his Majesty, in the history of these great achievements of the British arms throughout a series of systematic operations, so satisfactoiy a proof that the national interests and the glory of the British name have been successfully maintained while his Royal Highness has conducted the Government of the United Kingdom. Then a Commission for proroguing the Parliament was i^ ad : after whi? h the Lord Chancellor said, " My Lords and Gentlemen, " By Virtue of thc Commission under the Great Seal, to tu and otner Lords directed, and now read, we do, in obedience to the commands of his Royaj Highness the Prince Regent, in the narr. e and on behalf of his Majesty, prorogue this Parliament toTliursday, the twenty- second day of August nest, to be then here holden ; and this Parliament is accoidinglv prorogued toThursday, the twent y- second day of August next." GOLD COIN OF THE REALM. A BILL ( as amended by the Commons). Intituled, an Act for making more effectual provision for pre- venting the current Gold Coin of the Realm from being paid or accepted for a greater value than the current Value of such Coin-, for preventing any Note or Bill of the Governor and Company qf the Bank of England from being received for any smaller sum than the sum therein specified; and for staying proceedings upon any distress by tender of such Notes. Whereas it is expedient to enact as is hereinafter provided : Be it enacted by the King's Most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, iu this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, that,, from and after the passing of this Act, no person shall receive or pay for any Gold Coin lawfully current within the Realm, any more in value, benefit, profit, or advantage, than the true lawful value of such coin, w hether such value, benefit, profit, or advantage be paid, made, or taken in lawful money, or in any note or notes, bill or bills of the Governor and Company of the Bank of England, or in any silver token or tokens issued by the said Governor and Company, or by any or all of the said means wholly or partly, or by any other means, device, shift, or con- | trivance whatsoever ; and every person who shall i offend herein shall be deemed and adjudged guilty of a i misdemeanor. And be it further enacted, by the authority aforesaid, I that no person shall by any means, device, shift, or contrivance whatsoever, receive or pay any note or notes, bill or bills of the Governor and Company of the Bank of England, for less than the amount of lawful money expressed therein, and to be thereby made payable, except only lawful discount on such note or bill as shall not be expressed to be payable on demand ; and every person who shall offend herein shall be deemed and adjudged guilty of a misdemeanor. And be it enacted, by the authority aforesaid, that in case any person shall proceed by distress or poinding to recover from any tenant, or other person liable to such distress or poinding, any rent or sum of money due from such tenant or other person, it shall be lawful for such tenant or other person, in every such case to lender notes of the Governor and Company of the Bank of England, expressed to be payable on demand, to the amount of such rent or sum so due, either alone or together with a sufficient sum of lawful money, to the person on whose behalf such distress or poinding is made, or to the officer or person making such distress or poinding on his behalf; and in case such tender shall be accepted, or in case such tender shall be made and refused, the goods taken in such distress or poinding shall be forthwith returned to the party distrained upon, or against whom such poinding shall have been used, unless the party distraining or poinding and refusiug to accept such tender shall insist that a greater sum is due than the sum so tendered, and in such case the parties shall proceed as usual in such cases ; but if it shall appear that no more was due than the sum so tendered, then thc party who tendered such sum shall be entitled to the costs of all subsequent proceedings : Provided always, that the person to whom such rent or sum of money is due shall have and be entitled to all uch other remedies for the recovery thereof, exclusive of distress or poinding, as such person bad or was entitled to at the time of making such distress or poinding, if such person shall not think proper to accept such tender so made as aforesaid: Provided also, that nothing herein contained shall affect the right of any tenant, or other such person as aforesaid having right to replevy or recover the goods so taken in distress or poinding, in case, without making such tender as aforesaid, he shall so think fit.

Provided always, that nothing in this Act contained shall extend to Ireland. Provided always, and be it further enacted, lhat this Act shall continue and be in force to and until the twenty- fifth day of March, one thousand eight hundred and twelve, and uo longer. Curious Concretion.— A curious concretion has been taken out of the stomach of a horse which died at Glasgow a few days ago, of which Dr. Ure gives the following account:—" The concretion has the exterior appearance of a stone, covered with fine moss. It is of a brown colour, and marked on the surface with cor- rugations, corresponding to those iu the stomach, where il received its mould. It has a peculiar though not unpleasant smell; its shape is that of a flattened and somewhat elongated spheroid, measuring at its largest circumference 31 inches, at its smaller 27$. It is not of uniform hardness throughout; in some points it may easily be penetrated by a knife, but in general it has the density of refined sugar. It is rather tough, and does not readily pulverize. By chemical analysis, it is found to be composed of the phosphate of ammo- nia and magnesia, blended with vegetable matter. These materials are arranged interiorly in concentric layers, and the salt is perceived by the eye, in minute but irregular cryslais. There is no distinct nucleus, but several points are much harder than the general mass. In these places, the saline substance is more abundant. On calcination white fumes arise, which exhale a strong ammoniacal odour. The weight of the whole mass is 19lbs avoirdupoise. Its specific gravity is 1,300, being somewhat less than that of refined sugar. Such morbid concretions are by no means uncommon, but they are usually found in the great gut, called the colon. They have been analyzed by the eminent French chemists, Fourcroy and Van- I quelin. Nothing satisfactory concerning the cause of their formation is hitherto known." Taunton.— About the beginning of the present year, Phenis Adams, a private in the Ist Somerset militia, applied for surgical aid, in consequence of an ulcerated wound in his arm. Ou examination, it appeared that the ulcer was occasioned by his own contrivance, aLd that consequently he would be disappointed in obtain- ing his discharge, he therefore deserted from his regi- ment. Upou his apprehension, he was committed to the gaol at Wilton, where he was attended hy a medical gentleman, in consequence of a wound wjiich he then exhibited ou his leg, which there is much reason to suppose was artificially produced. On the 24th of April last, he fell down a flight of s eps, and was taken up with the blood ooziug from his ears. Being con- veyed to bed, he appeared to have sudered no material injury ; but, in a day or two afterwards, he observed to the medical gentleman who attended him, that be thought lie was getting deaf. Believing this to be a new stratagem to accomplish his purpose, the medical gentleman asked him, in a low tone of voice, " Are you very deaf?" To which the man replied, " Yes; very deaf." Intimation was then given him that his object was understood, and would of course be defeated. Immediately afler Ibis, Adams fell into a stale of pro- found insensibility, and has so remained down to the present period— a space of nearly tierce months. From that time, the sustenance he received has been very slight, consisting entirely of tea, broths, aud occasi- onally of small portions of bread aud butter. On the 24th of April the accident happened ; ou the 25th his pulse was very hard, and indicated inflammation of the brain ; upon which lie was bled, and the symptoms' abated. The following day, in consequence of his pulse increasing, he was again bled j from which period lie has remained in his present state. His head and back have been blistered, without producing any sensi- ble effect; and strong electrical shocks have produced no bodily sensation. His pulse is generally regular, but wants tone. The pupil of his eye is in a slight degree dilated, and his respiration is easy ; nor has it been in- terrupted from the commencement. Every mode of arousing him from the insensible state in which he lies has entirely failed. Snuff has been thrust up his nostrils, and pungent salts applied, ueither of which have pro- duced any other effect than thai of a secretion from the eyes. On Sunday, the 14th, it was determined to try on him the nitrous oxyd gas; the operation of which is known to occasion so extraordinary a degree of mental and bodily excitation. The tube affixed to the bladder containing the gas, was so firmly closed, that all eBforts to open them proved fruitless. His nos- trils and lips were then compressed, and every means taken to prevent his inhaling any air but the gaseous fluid. This attempt was persevered in until his pulse became interrupted, evidently from his desisting to breathe, and no effect in conseqnence resulted from the experiment. The man now remains in the same state of total insensibility. New Manmuvre.'— Saturday morning, at half- past nine, the Coldstream Regiment of Foot Guards, tried the new manoeuvre invented by Captain Dangeian, on the half- pay. The square, although executed for the first time by the above regiment, was formed in 25 seconds; and the battalion was formed again in line in 32 seconds. Bonaparte Religion.— As tbe French Ruler has as- sembled a Council of the principal Ecclesiastics in France and Italy, for the purpose of supporting the ; interests of religion in those kingdoms, the following ( extracts from Wittman's Travels, illustrative of his former sentiments towards Christianity, deserve par- ticular notice at this period:— In page 157 of that work we are informed, that, when the British Mili- tary Mission were at Jerusalem, they were told that Bonaparte had declared, that, should lie obtain pos- session of Jerusalem, " he would plant the tree of liberty oil the spot where the Cross of Jesus had stood, and would bury the first French grenadier who should fall in the attack, in the tomb of our Saviour." A deserter was shot, on Saturday last, on the road from Dorchester, Oxon, to Maidenhead, in the act of escaping from his escort a third time. He hatl pre- viously wounded oue of the escort with a knife, and nothing short of firing at. him, could have prevented his escape, with two others. A correspondent, in allusion to the account lately given of the importation of a species of vegetable wax from the Brazils, remarks that such importations might be rendered totally unnecessary, if encouragement were given to the cultivation of bees iu this country. It was long ago submitted, in one of the Reports of the Agricultural Society, that at a most trilling expense wax might be produced here sufficient to render us in- dependent, not only of the importation of that article in any shape, but also of tallow. But improvements, which clash with long- established commercial arrange- ments, are generally slow, and nothing short of im- perious necessity can ever procure them to be adopted. On Friday, the Sth instant, a new sloop, of about 40 tons, was launched at New Quay, Cardiganshire.— The mode of launching, although common on that coast, is not generally known:— Two bars of iron, carinated, having a vertical motion, are by means of a strong iron pin, attached to the keel of the vessel under prow ; to the curved end of each of the iron bars, which are in the same direction as the prow, two cables are fastened ( being in all four) by means of which the vessel is hauled, by men and women, during the neap tide, down to the beach, where, by the influx of the tide, she is in a few hours set afloat. In order lo facilitate her motion, pieces of small limber were placed across the direction in which she was hauled, to sei ve as rollers ;. and to prevent her from heeling, two ropes, fastened to the top of the masts, were drawn in contrary directions- on each side of the sloop. We have the satisfaction to learn, that the Junta of Tarragona have escaped to the celebrated Monastery of Monserrat, the fortifications of which are impreg- nable, and it is said that a very large proportion o£ the garrison had also escaped. The remains of the Duke d'Albuquerque, and of Don Pedro Ronquillo, are arrived at Portsmouth, mid put on board the Asia, Spanish 74, which will sail shortly for Cadiz. The Duke- d'Albuquerque's heart is deposited in a gold urn. Admiral Apodaca returns to Cadiz in the Asia. Robbery of the Glasgow Bank.— Sunday se'nnight, it was discovered that the office of the Paisley Union Bank Company, Glasgow, liad been entered, by means of false keys, aud robbed of Scotch Bank notes, Bank of England notes, and cash, to the amount of £ 20,000. Suspicion falling upon three men who, for some days preceding, had been seen in Glasgow, Mr Campbell, an officer of the police at Edinburgh, aud two of the gentlemen belonging to the Bank, set off in pursuit of them, and traced them to Welling, iu Hertfordshire, where Shey had lefl a portmanteau, to be fo; warded to a person in Tottenham Court road, and from thence lo Coventry- street, where all trace of them was losl. Mr. Campbell made application at the Public Office, Bow- street, and Lavender, Vickery, and Adkins, Ihrec of the officers, accompanied bv Mr. Campbell, went to the house in Tottenham Court- road, where the portman- teau had been directed to, where they found a box containing a number of picklocks, skeleton kejs, and various oiber implements for house- breaking, directed the same as the portmanteau. The officers learning that the owner of Ihe house was at present in the rules of tiie King's Bench Prison, went the same night to his residence in St, George's Fields, where they appre- hended a well- known character ofthe name of Hniton White, who, but a few months since, escaped from one of the hulks at Woolwich. On the person of While were found sixteen guineas anti some Bauk of England notes.'— Yesterday, White, and a man of the house where he was taken, were examined before Mr. Bead, at Bow- street, when White was identified as having been convicted at the last Summer Assizes at Chester, for being at large before his sentence of transportation was expired, ami received a second sentence of transportation for life. White admitted the truth of this charge, but denied any knowledge of the Glasgow Bank lobbery. He and the other man were committed for further examination. On Monday, White was again brought to Bow- streel Office, for further examination, on suspicion of being concerned in the said robbery, as was J. Scultop, on a charge of aiding and abetting in the same. White was identified by G. Johnson, a waiter at the Talbot Inn, in Darlington, in the county of Durham, in company wilh two other men, travelling in a chaise and tour, ou Monday se'nnight. They all appealed to have a great number of Scotch and Bank of England notes. A Scotch jg20 Bank bill was tendered in payment for their chaise, some sherry, and biscuits; which the landlord not being able to change, it was taken to the Bank, where White paid 2s. Od. to obtain the change. He was also identified by H. Cumington, waiter at the White Hart inn, atWelwyn, travelling iu a chaise and four towards London, in company with two men answering the same description as those seen with him at Darlington. At this place they left a portmanteau and coat, directed to be sent by a coach to the residence of Scultop, in Tottenham Court- road, where some picklock keys being found, he was taken into custody ; but there being no other evidence against hiin, he was discharged, he not answering the description of either of those in company with White,— Air. R. Walkingshaw, who is concerned in the Bank, proved that upwards of JCSO. GOO had been stolen from Ihe Bank.— Mr. Knapp attended for the prouecutioo, aud Mr. Adoljibus lor tie prisoners. The following Notice relative to Claims for the Effects and Credits of deceased Soldiers, has been published s-*- " War- Office, July 17, 1811. " Many complaints having been received of the unautho- rized and improper interference of Licensed Navy Agents, in obtaining the etfeats and credits of deceased Soldiers, 011 be- half of their widows and relatives; in a way that subjects the parties entitled to such effects aud credits to considerable expense, contrary to his Majesty's gracious intentions, in the regulations which have been recently adopted for the purpose of giving facility and dispatch in satisfying all claims of the above description, free of any expense: the Secretary at War deems it necessary to caution the relatives of deceased Sol- diers against employing any Licensed Navy Agent, for the purpose of recovering monies which may be due to them ; and to apprize the Claimants and Licensed Navy Agents, that the most positive directions have been given, that 110 appli- cation for the effects and credits of deceased Soldiers, corning from such Ageuts, or in which such persons may appear to have been employed, shall iu future he attended to in this office. By Order of the Secretary at War, " W. MERRY." AMERICA.— A curious Pamphlet has been published in America, consisting of an Address to the People of the United States, by Mr. Robert Smith, late Secretary of State, in which, for his own vindication, he details the causes of the differences between him aud Mr. Madison, and which led to his resignation. The most prominent point of difference was the conduct of the President with reference to the British and French Governments. Smith accuses tbe President of adopting half measures, and not maintaining a tone consistent with the dignity of tbe Government of the United States, and- more than insinuates a gross partiality on the part of Madison towards France. He states, that notwithstanding it had been openly promulgated from the Slate Department, that a satisfactory provision 011 the part of the French Government to restore the American property seized, must be combined with a repeal of the French Edicts, with a view to a non- intercourse with Great Britain, yet, it is a met, that before the passing of the Non- Intercourse Law of the last Session of Congress ( which Smith states to have been Madison's measure), the French Government had officially commoni. cated their fixed determination not to restore the propeity that had heen so seized ; arid, moteover, that from the information received by Madison prior to the date of the Non- Intercourse Law. it was evident to his (^ mith's) mind, that the Berlin and Milan Decrees had not been revoked, as declared by the President's Proi lamation. Mr. Smith then states, that in consequence1 of the re- iterated ootiages of France, he had prepared a draught of a letter, in June, 1810, to General Armstrong which he published, expressing strong indignation at the conduct of the French Government, but to the sending of which the President objected ; and Smith states that he has reason to believe that this very letter constituted part, of the ground of Madi- son's hostility to him. Madison contented himself with making a personal communication to Armstrong, on the subject uf the French ou? rages, without any instruction to him to communicate it to the French Government, On the arrival of Serrurier, the French envoy, in America, Smith also states that he prepared the draught of a letter to him, dated February 20,1811, containing a series of questions as to whether the Berlin and Milan Decrees were revoked, in whole or in part, 011 the lst of last November, and with resjiect to the admis. ion of American vessels into the French ports : but ou waiting on the President with the draught, and expecting his sanction as a matter of course, he was, to his astonishment, told by Mr. Madison, that it would not be expedient to send to M. Serrurier any such note; and Smith proceeds to slate, that Madison's deportment throughout the interview evinced a high degree of disquietude, which occa- sionally betrayed him into fretful expressions. After detailing some oilier causes of difference, he proceeds to mention, that a sum of 23,392 dollars had been retained as commission in the hands of Mr. Erving, the American Agent in London, and that the sum thus retained, was Ihe very money paid by the Bii ish Government in trust for American citizens, claimants, under the 7. ih Article of the British Treaty, and to pay whom there was no money under Smith's control. Erving being an officer with, a fixed annual compensation, and Smith finding no authority which could allow Erving to retain this money as Commission in his hands; and being told by Mad isou, that the latter had no knowledge of the circumstances of the transaction, Smith applied to Erving, theu at Cadis, for the money, and the latter on his return to the United States, produced a private letter from Madison, authorizing him to retain this money, as a remu- neration for his services. Smith expressed to Madison his sua prise and regret at the transaction, nnd states, that this affair also contributed in a great degree to the ruptuie between the latter and him elf. After generally justifying his conduct, Mr. Smitlj con- cludes by declaring the indispensable necessity that their President should be a man of energetic mind, of enlarged and liberal views, of temperate and dignified deportment, and of honourable and manly feelings. In the course of the pamphlet it appears that Madison, to get rid of Smith, offered; him the Mission to Russia, but which the latter declined. Tbe following interesting Proclamation has been issued by Marshal Beresford to the Portuguese troops: Head- quarters, Santa Olatla, July 1. H. is Excellency Marshal Beresfoid acquaints ihe army, that, in pursuance of the sentence of a Council of War, con- firmed by his Excellency on the 27th ult. five soldteisof the militia of the regiments of Evora, Lagos, and Beia ( here their names are given), have been shot, for the abominable crime of repeated deseitionin the time of war. His Excellency also acquaints the army, that the benignity of his Royal Highness has be en induced to spare the sentence of death to which two other soldiers- of the same regiment were condemned, ex- changing it for perpetual degradation in Africa. His Excel- lency declares how much he feels on being obliged to confirm sentences of such a nature ; but such is the scandalous ex- ample which has been given by the regiments of militia of the Alentejo, bv numerous and repeated deseitions, that he is henceforward determined not to pardon anv o? the individuals belonging to the said regiments, who by desertion abandon their colours; being false to their God, traitors to their august Soveteign, and thus shamefully withdrawing fiom the defence of iheir individual liberty, and that of their countrv. His Excellency also ordered, tbat all the other individuals of the above regiments, who have been taken up as deserters, should be present, as accomplices, at the mourniul execution of their comrades, in order that, deeply reflecting on the enormity of their conduct, the sight of such an example might fill them with due horror for their crimes. At the same time tbe incomparable goodness of his Royal Highness, dispensing with their being brought to trial, orders fohem to be restored to his service, hoping that the impression of such an example will forever prevent them from exposing themselves to a like fate, and that by future good conduct they will wash away their disgrace, and render themselves worthy of his Highnesses favour ; but such of them are to- be drafted into the infantry of the line, as from age, figure, and strength, are fit for that service. His Excellency cannot omit remarking, that, he has generally observed, with great astonishment anddiupleasuie, a want of patriotism and public spirit among the inhabitants of the province of Alentejo. Its militia have deserted, and muster much less than half their quota, through the absolute inactivity, ignorance, aud want of zeal of the Colonels, Captains, and other officers, who have totally failed in performing their duty. The Magistrates, officers of the Ordenanza, and other individuals, have neglec- ted the recruiting for the line, and the furnishing of ail those supplies whieh their country demands of them ; so that were they not Portuguese, his Excellency would be induced to believe them disloyal. His Excellency has conveyed to the Royal presence information of this selfishness and want of zeal in t he inhabitants of this province; especially acquainting his Highness of the gross ignorance which prevails, from the Colonel of the militia to the private in the rank3, who are without the smallest instruction or discipline; while fiom the neglect of all the authorities belonging to the militia and ordenanza, deserters live at their homes in tranquillity, and the completement of the corps cannct be accomplished, flis Excellency must here observe, that the regiments of militia Algarve are very different in point of numbers and regularity, and though they come from a remote and distinct province, yet they have talsen a part in the defence of the province of Alentejo with very different qualities of energy and patriotism. Iiis Excellency is sorry at being compelled to make known so disagreeable a truth;, but it is necessary il should be known, for the confusion ot those authorities who neglect their duties; and his Excellency is anxious that their future conduct may remove from tbe public mind that impression, which this censure is calculated to produce with regard to those who are the subjects of it. His Excellency Lieutenant general F. de Paula Leite, Military Governor of the Alentejo, will cause these Geueral Oiders to be printed, and posted up in the public places of all the towns, that all their inhabitants may kuow the same. ( Signed) MOZiNBO, Ad>- general. We subjoin the following account of the late suece**- ful repulse of an attempt of the Danes on one of our convoys:— " On the lotli inst. the convoy which left Hano thc C2<$ ult. appeared off Wingo, when the trade from that place joined, but were unable to proceed 011 account of contrary winds. The Sheldrake and Strenuous were to proceed with the tiade bound to the Humber andtheNore; and the Hebe and Fancy were appointed to convoy those ships destined to the northern ports. The Danes continue actively employed in annoying our trade on every occasion* but can only hope to succeed in calm weatlier, when our ships of war cannot make way after them. The enemy made two attempts on the convoy coming down the Belt y the weather being calm,, the ships of war could make no head, and consequently Could not afford the trade pro- tection. The Danes mustered seventeen large gun- boats, and ten heavy row- boats-, aud would have taken every merchantman, had not fortunately a breeze sprung up, which enabled the convoy ships to advance and engage the enemy whilst the trade made off. Our armed ships eui the enemy off from the land, and would have captured every vessel, but for a thick fog, which came on suddeuly, and afforded their gun- boats the means of escape, except four, which fell into our hands. Three out of these four boats have been captured from 11s by the enemy. Their crews, consisting of 121 men, were made prisoners. The Cressy, Dictator, and Sheldrake sustained the action with the gun b ats; and experienced no loss in killed or wound- ed. A British shipof wai, a few days previous to the above action, was nearly captured by the enemy's gun- boats. She beat off the enemy, after having about seven of he* crew, killed or wounded." It is stated, that on the 9th uf June the British a* my in Portugal amounted to 50,000 men. Of this number, it is said, there are 30,000 rank and file actually fit for duty j 7,000 wounded, but doing well, and likely soeu to be able to return to their duly ; and 5,000 sick, extraordinary number, it is added, at the present mo- ment, when the unhealthy season has already set in.— The remainder are employed in detachments, the gar- rison of Lisbon, and other duties. There were 7000 men at Cadiz; the reinforcements, including those al- ready arrived, on their way embarking, or under orders amount to no less than 16,000. In a very short time. Lord Wellington will have fourteen regiments of caval- ry, amounting to between 5000 and 6000 rank and file. A letter from Antwerp states, that Bonaparte has sixteen sail of thc line in that harbour, and eight other* building. This is something towards his " more than a hundred sailbut, unless they are kept very snugy they will never form a part of the complement, as the British are amazingly fond of sPcond~ hand vessels! An article from ^ aladollid, June, computes the troops in that city, at 3,000 men^ comprehending, how- ever, the sick: those al Salamanca are stated at 1,000. On the 1 Ith of last month, about 900 or 1000 of the patriots under Bourbon, well armed and mounted, ap- proached the walls of thc latter city, and offered battle to the garrison on the adjacent plain, but the French shut themselves up for two nights. On the 17th Catella, attacked the garrison of Simancus with some success, when those that escaped sought refuge inTudela de Douro, Government, we have the pleasure to stale, does not relax in its exertions for recruiting the British army ii* Portugal. At this moment there are about 4000 men, consisting of various detachments, ready to embark at Portsmouth ; and at Plymouth about 600 Dragoons, and the Buffs, all destined for Portugal. It ha& been remarked, that in the variety of discus- sions on the subject of bullion, there has been some rich ore, plentv of brass, and an immense quautity of lead! When an article is become a favourite remedy with the Public, it is to be expected that it will be opposed by the interested Fee- hunting physician, or what is now properly termed the regular Quack, who, in consequence of a fli nsy publication— a fashionable mode of advertising, would meanly insinuate that he possesses a superior knowledge of the Dis- ease, for which the Medicine is held in repute. Surge. m Fisher, in a new Edition of his Familiar Treatise'on Asthma, Consumption, &. c ( containing a long Appeal to the Public on the Use of the Stramonium), has very properly exposed the machination of this contemptible herd of scribblers-, in a manner which does him- credit as a man of humanity and science. Through the recommendation of this experienced Practitioner, the Stramonium has been very generally em- ployed in Asthma, Consumption'of the Lungs, &< » .. and the uniform success that has attended- the prepared Herb and the Oxymel, made by his direction, has proved that in him their confidence has not been misplaced. The process which the Herb undergoes in the6e preparations, entirely deprives it of any noxious quality, and renders- it more efficacious That it may be readily obtained in this properly prepared state, we are happy to find that he has appointed Messrs. IJurgesa and Co. Chemists to his Majesty, 20, Bedford street, Coveut- garden, his agents in London, and the following respectable venders iu the country, viz. F. UD<' WFS, Shrewsbury; Knott and Lloyd, Birmingham; Billing*, Liverpool; Poole, Chester j J. Evan son, Whitchurch; and'Fymbs, Worcester- That many persons have found great benefit who have unfortunately pursued a dangerous practice in their youtb in unguardedly giving way to that crime which brought on the divine vengeance, is incontestibly illustrated by the matchless and unprecedented sale of " SOLOMON'S GUIDE to- HEALTH ; a book which of all others in the medical Jine i* so universally necessary to be used and treasured op by young* and old in every family, that the increasing demand for it cannot be wondered at, when it is considered that, as a faithful Guide either to male or female, it has not its equal in. the whole world.— Price 3s. only.
