LONDON, TUESDAY, JULY 30. FROM SATURDAY'S LONDON GAZETTE. DOWS1SG- STHPET, JL'I. Y 27. A dispatch, of tehich the feiUaahr' is an ertrarf, has hen r- rs/ veti from licit.- General Viscount Wellington, dated ?•< nti de St. Jooc, Jane 11, 1 SI 1. THE enemy continued i. i the positions reported in my. dispatch of the 4th instant, td! theTth, when they moved ; i large hodv of cavalry anil about two bat- tal ens of infantry fiomMontigo towards the Xevora, and from thence upon Villa de Key, Le Hoca, and . Albuquerque. The obiect of this movement w as ap- parently t" cut off our detachments employed in uj>, - crving the enemy on that side; in which, however, they did not succeed, Major Cocks having retired with nil i. is detachments upon St. Vincente, still keeping c'imtnunications open with Arronehes and Portalegte. Theeneuiv's troups retired from Albuquerque on the << h, and . Itajor C.' ocks again entered that ( mvn with his partus on the same day. The arniv of Portugal n're a^ ain in tbe same position on the right of the Gua deira which tbev occupied when 1 addressed your I. ordsbip on the 4tb instant. Geneial tilake made an attempt toobtain possession of Niebla, on the night of the. 1: 0th of June, m which place the enemy bad a jSurisou of about three hundred infantry. I am sorry tp sav lies attempt! failed, rind he remained before the place till the i2d instant, and then retired towards the r.' iuidimiu. On Ihcrjth, two divisions of infantrv aud the cavalry of the. 3th army, under tbe Conde de LJt; » ine Yallamur, were crossing the Guadiana, on a hridfc Constructed for them at St. I. ucar by Colonel Arrstiii. The artillery was embarked at Ayamonte, arid Oereral llallastcios with the. advanced gua.' d re- mained upon the; Hirer St, Piedro. Il appeared to be General lilake's intention to embatk bis troops for V'adi2, hut neither General Castauos nor I have beard from him since he marched from . Inramenha on tbe IStb of June. In Ihe ninth, Marshal Bessieres had re- turned a lit in to VaHmbHid from Benin ente; and- iii the end of the month of June the enemy assembled at aild in the ueighborirbood of Valladolid a considerable body ef troops. General llouuet, however, still le- lnained- in the neighbourhood of Leon and Benavente u . tb the troojis- under his command; and I have re cent d from General . Silveira a report ofthe defeat of the Fieneh in an attack made upon a Spanish detach- ment from the army in Gallieia, in front of Astorga, <,.; the 25| b ultimo. The Guerillas likewise continue their operations, and besides the alarm given to Valla- dolid on tbe 15th ultimo, Don Julian gave a similar alarm to Salamanca ou tbe 29th ultimo; but a con- siderable party of Guerillas belonging to different chief's, which bad taken a convoy at Peuaranda, were afterwards surprised 011 the 30th'of June, and dispers- ed, about two hundred having been killed, wounded, and made prisoners. The rumours of an approximation between this Country and Russia continue to gain ground ; and it is now confidently affirmed, that several vessels laden • w ith warlike stores, for Hie use of the Russian army in Poland, are on the point ot tailing lor the Baltic. All the points in dispute between this country and Russia are said to be adjusted, and the Court of St. Petersbnrgb only waits for an accommodation with Turkey, to declare against France. The letters from St. Petersburg!), by the Anlio,'.' mails, are expressed in terms highly favourable to the continuance ofthe intercourse with Great Britain, through the medium of neutral vessels; and a great number of ships were either laden, or in a progress of loading, with valuable cargoes, in the ports of Russia. We are also informed by a letter received 011 Mon- day, dated the 19th inst. of a homeward- bound con- voy of about 50 sail, then waiting a favourable wind, in Hanno Bay. It will be seen by the following letter, that some disturbances have arisen in Dantzic, in consequence of the animosity which prevails between the French and Russian troops:--" DANTZIC, JULY 16.— This place lias been thrown into great confusion by au alarming riot that occurred among the soldiery a day or two since, in which between 70 and 80 lives were lost. General Rappe was giving an entertainment on his birth day to a select party of the officers of the garrison, which consists of 25,000 men ; and during the absence of their commanders, many of tbe men be- came intoxicated, particularly the Germans. While they were drinking, flic Frenchmen proposed as a toast * The Emperor Napoleon and success to his soldiers.' The Germans were inclined to drink it on the condi- tion that the Emperors of Germany and Russia were included, which the French refused. A dispute arose, in consequence sw ords were drawn, bayonets fixed, balls fired, and the slaughter of the number I have mentioned took ( dace. In the midst of this scene the officers arrived, but their interference bad little effect with the inebriated soldiery, aud the riot yvas not qncllcd until several officers were among the sufferers. The result is, that General Rappe has sent about forty to prison, who will be tried by a militaiy commission tor disobedience, rebellion, and intoxication. It is probable that a terrible example will be made of them." We are happy to learn that the repugnance of the Spanish Govt rnment to allow their troops to be placed tinder tbe command of British officers is likely at length to be overcome. A British officer, who lias served in tbe Spanish armies with distinguished reputation, has, we understand, arrived in town, for the purpose of submitting to Government a propo- ;- i; ioii for forming a Spanish legion, to be disciplined ar, d commanded by British officers, in the same man- ner as tbe Portuguese troops under Marshal Beresford. The proposition has been submitted to Lord Welling- ton and General Castauos, a\ J has their entire appro- bation. It is also sanctioned by the Spanish regency. We have been favoured with an official paper from Bonrdeaux, by which it appears that not only those American ships have been set at liberty by Bonaparte, in the ports of France, which contained the property er produce of the United States, but also ships of which the cargoes consisted of cocoa, cofl'ee, logwood, bark, pepper, sugar, and other articles of Spanish and British colonial produce have been permitted to un- load and reload without any obstruction, and every vessel which has arrived in France since the 2d No- x ember last has been placed under the same favourable circumstance-. THE COLUMN NAPOLEON.— What has been called a tower, erecting at Boulogne, is, it seems, a sort of column formed of marble fonnd near Boulogne, and which is to be called the Column Napoleon. It is 162 French feet iu height, and square. On the sides .. re two lions « f bronze cast by Houdon, 17 feet in height.- In front is a representation ip bronze of Mar- dial Soult presenting the model oi this monument to Napoleon in the name of tbe Army of the Coast; the ' figures are 1.5 feet in height. On the sea- front is a representation also in bronze of Admiral Lalnnche Treville with marine attributes and allegorical figures • of. prudence and strength. These, two bronzes are < ased with porphyry. The column is surmounted by three eagles in bronze, cast by Getti, seven feet in licinlit, supporting on their wings displayed the bust of Napoleon. There is in one ofthe American democratic papers a very extraordinary document, for the authenticity of which tbe editor pledges himself, purporting to be a communication from Champagny, Duke of Cadore. dated in October last. He maintains, that the " Con- • tinent will never rest quietly in submission to the sway of Bouapiyte, while the example of tbe free Govern- ment of England exists to encourage resistance of despotism." He says, " England must fall prostrate, if the Continent remains upright." He is of opinion that tbe King of England is a slave, because he is obliged by the organization of his Government, to consult the w ishes of the people of his kingdom in the appoint- ment ofhis Ministers. The English populace, he says, are " a set of petty tyrants."—" In England, as has been the case in France, factions can never be mended, they must be. extirpated. Some few persons, ambitious or bankrupt in character and fortune, will always, under the' existence of the actual constitution of a royal democracy, find opportunities to mislead the. ignorant, and to head the needy and disaffected in committing excesses, dangerous to the peace of Europe by contagious examples."— After deprecating the Eng lish factions, lie adds, *' No more neutrals shall be en- dured. Capital punishment shall be inflicted on the master and crew of any foreign vessels trading with England. Without the adoption of these plans, a truce only can be signed, but a peace can never be concluded between Great Britain and the Continent." A more daring avowal of a diabolical design never cer- tainly escaped from the lips or heart of main The 23d light dragoons, under the command of the Earl of Portarlington, are in daily expectation of re- ceiving orders to embark for Portugal. This fine re- giment sustained great loss at the battle of Talavera, and came home shortly after to recruit. Madame Catalani's three eldest children, by Mons. Vallebreque, are, a girl born in Italy, a second girl in France, and the third, a boy, horn in England; as a provision for them respectively, he has invested the funds derived from Madame Catalani's professional talents iu either kingdom, for the Child born therein, in property belonging to that particular country, in- tending that each should become a citizen thereof; the boy first born in England he calls Jack Bull, and for him he has made two considerable purchases of houses and land, not many weeks ago 1 , A few days since a labouring man engaged in plough- ing in a field at Bignor, near Petworth, in Sussex, found the plough obstructed by a heavy stone, which he obtained assistance and removed; it is of marble, aud beneath it a flight of steps, of the same, leading to a largo arched passage, when they discovered an entire Roman bath, with tesselated pavement, in per- fect preservation. The bath is of a hexagonal form, surrounded with seats, in the centre is a metallic pipe — the bottom of the bath is about two feet below the pavement, and five feet wide; the tesselated floor re- presents various figures in dancing attitudes, most beautifully wrought. In digging further, they found a dolphin and various other antiquities of the most costly materials. It is supposed to be the remains of a Roman Palace. A Roman road has also been dis- covered leading through the field, and supposed to ex- tend much further, but it is not at present suffered to be explored. A gentleman in the vicinity has an an- cient manuscript which particularly speaks of this place, and many attempts had been made to discover it, before it was so fortunately accomplished by ac- cident. In this manuscript, many other curiosities are spoken of, which are expected to be discovered on a further exploration. Persons from all round the vicinity, have been to exainir. the place. A very considerable sum has been offered for the field on a spe- culation, but refused. A person, assuming the appearance of a clergyman, and pretending to be ill, requested a gentleman on Westminster Bridge to assist him to a coach, in doing which the pious man eased the gentleman uf bis watch, his pm- se, and his pocket- book. Last week a respectable and wealthy farmer, residing near Norwood, Surry, and who is remarkable for keeping a large quantity of corn by him, desired his labourers to remove a large wheat- stack. The men had, however, no sooner got on the roof, than it gave way, the inside having been almost totally devoured by rats; and they were precipitated to tbe ground, amidst, it is supposed, not less than 5000 of these • vermin, the greater number of which unfortunately made their escape. Sunday, the 14th instant, Charles Giddins, coach- man to the Duke of Portland, was apprehended in passing through the burgh of Annan, with a break, a heavy carriage, and two single- horse cars, w ith bag- gage, and fined by John Dalgleish, Esq. one of the present Magistrates of that burgh, in 101. Scots, with 5s. expeiiccs, for profanation ofthe Sabbath- day. A dreadfiil accident happened a few days since, at the Hotweils, Bristol. The men employed in blast- ing the rocks blew up several mines in succession ; but one of them missing fire, they conceived that the failure was occasioned by the touch- hole being too small. They accordingly determined to enlarge it, by chipping away the sides with a steel instrument; in doing which they imprudently neglected the pre- caution of wetting the charge, and a spark unfortu- nately falling into the chamber, the powder exploded instantly.— Of the two men at work, one had his skull fractured by a fragment of rock, and his com- panion had also his skull fractured, and a band shat tered to pieces. The catch of the famous delicious fish the John Dory has been so immense in Cawsand Bay, that j several mounds full of that fish have been sold at from 5d. to 9d. each ; each fish weighing 5 or 7lbs. FASHIONS FOR LADIES. Walking Dress.— A high round robe, with full long sleeve, trimmed with Vandyke lace at the throat and cuffs, and ornamented round the bottom with a Tus- can border and needle- work. A short capuchin cloak of buff- coloured shot sarsuet, fastened with broaches on the shoulders and trimmed with deep Chinese ? ilk fringe of the same shade. A Moorish turban bonnet, gathered into a broach ill centre of the forehead. Pur- ple ridicule, with gold snap and tassels. Half- boots of buff- coloured kid. Parasol with deep Indian awning, tbe same as the cloak. Child's Dress.— A short sleeve Spanish vest and trowsers in one; an Indian dimity waistcoat with long sleeves, and collar trimmed with a naimw border of muslin. High shoes of purple or black Morocco.

Evening Dress.— Grecian robe, with demi- train, of fine Indian muslin or Italian crape, trimmed with silk or silver fringe, a Circassian sleeve, and bosom finish- ed a la chemise. A Roman tunic of Sardinian blue sa- tin, confined with correspondent cord and silver but- tons in front. A neckchain and locket of silver filigree or pearl, with ear- rings and bracelets en suite.

White satin slippers, with silver clasps. Gloves of white French kid, and fan of carved rs._ ry. A correspondent wishes to recommend to all per- isons employed in the fields, during the hot weather, to wear a light straw hat, or even paper cap, ill order to shield the top of the head from the scorching rays . ofthesun. He is aware how liable they are to throw their hats aside; but he cautions them earnestly against this practice, as he well knows the fatal effects which often result from the coup desnleil, or stroke of the sun, in hot climates. He is inclined to think that this may be a catt- e of the frequent sudde n deaths which are often said to happen in this country in ex- treme hot weather; and lie will este>:' ni himself hap- py, if this well- meant advice should be any means of diminishing their number. Mr. Garrow, the Counsel; received fees of fifteen guineas each, on :> 50 briefs, all arising out of six special jury causes, ; md the whole of these confined lo the failure of on-- banking- lionse— the perusal of one brief only, therefore, saved him thejroijbi.-; dtasdiag all the rest. _ On Monday se'nnight, tbe Union Lodge, No. 15S, of Free, and Accepted Masons according to tbe old iusti- tu'ton, was opened and constituted at the Old Ivy- Bush, Carmarthen, by the B. W. Brother, Ji. i'luni- mer, P. S. G. W. under a warrant from the Grand Lodge of Ancient Masons, his Grace the Duke, of Athol, Grand Master. After the Officers appointed to govern the Lodge had been regularly installed in their offices, there were twenty- three gentlemen transferred from the St. David's Lodge of Perfect Friendship, No. 623, aud three others from Haverfordwest, who ? t- tended on this occasion, and were initiated into the mysteries of the ancient order. The Brethren depart- ed at an early hour, highly gratified with the polite and unremitting attention of Brother Plunimqr, who pre- sided, as well as the other officiating grand officers.— A Lodge will be opened under this warrant on tbe first Tuesday in each month at the above- mentioned inn. SAD), En's BALLOON.— Mr. Sadler, tbe celebrated British aeronaut, who will ascend on the 12th of Au- gust, in honour of the natal day of his Royal Highness the Prince Regent, is to be accompanied by Captain Paget, who was to have been the partner ofhis voy- age at Cambridge, bad circumstances permitted. The following, it is said, is to be the inscription round the centre of tbe balloon: " Sacred to the xi. txth anniver- sary of the I'rince Regent's nativity, G. I'. IV.— The hope and cons- olation of a sorrowing empire." DUKC OF DEVONSHIRE. - Tuesday died suddenly, at Devonshire- house, Piccadilly, his Grace William Ca- vendish, Duke of Devonshire, Baron Cavendish of Hardwicke, aud Baron Clifford, which last title be possessed in right of his mother.

They furnish two ' dispatches from Marshal Sonlt, respecting the recent operations in Spain and Portu- gal. In the reconnaissance of22d June, the French General says, that " two squadrons. of the 11th reg. called the English light horse, and of the Hanoverian hussars, were destroyed ; three officers and 150 horse- men, with their horses, remained in our power; tiie enemy had besides a good many killed and a great number wounded." In both dispatches it is said that Lord Wellington had continued his march towards Lisbon ; njjd that he had sent 3000sick and wounded to that place.— [ By accounts, however, since receiv- ed- from " lie allied army, its head- quarters were at St. Joao on the lltli inst. and no mention is made of any intention at that period to retrograde fiirther.]- Soult's second dispatch concludes as follows: " The English are very much dissatisfied with Gene- ral B' i- esfoid, who has been suspended and sent to En tland. for bavins exposed * the English troops, and spai- od the Poltuguese and Spaniards. It. Is true that the fatter,'- who were more numerous, were less exposed than the Kn flish, and suffered less loss. — A great num- ber ot'deserters from the English army come in to us. ' t'hey all assort, that the English feel their inability to snnport the contest in Spain ; aud every thing in- duces me to think, that when the army of reserve, which vnu^ lj. ighuess has announced to me, shall have arrived upon Almeida, they will be convinced of the iinjiossibTitv even of maintaining themselves at Lis- bon. ' I he Knglish have experienced a great want of provisions and ot" money. Money is become very :- carce wiih them , they rio longer scatter it with tiie tame profusion. They attribute this to the unfavour- able st.' U- of t'ne exchange.— The breaches in the for- ties-; of Ijadajoz are repairing with the greatest ac- tivity. The place has been revictualled for seven mouths; we have just " discovertd a new magazine of 100,000 e. eight of gunpowder, which had been cou- cuaUnl iu the vaults.— 1 have caused Olivenza to be rased." * At the battle of' Albuera. The Moniteur contains also a report of the late Spanish Governor of Tarragona, addressed to the Council nf Regency, on the events which took place at the close of the siege of that unfortunate city. This report, evidently composed under the eye of the French Government, throws the loss of tbe place on the want of co- operation on the part of Campoverde, who promised to succour it, but failed to tiillil his promise -, and on the English, who also appeared with 3 division before it two days before the assault, but refused to assist in the defence. Besides the letters from Soult, the French papers contain some advices from Catalonia. It appears from these, that tlie army under Campoverde is still in a state to give uneasiness to the enemy. Snchet, after the capture of Tarragona, is said to have re- paired ' o Barcelona, and from thence directed l^ is match to Monserrat, where Cauipoverde had taken tefuge. Bonaparte has put an end to the session of the Legis lative Body! The closing speech, by which they were dismissed to their homes, takes notice of the flourishing state of the French finances, a subject tipon • which the people of France are carefully kept in the dark. It is a fact, however, that the annual deficit increases yearly, and cannot do otherwise so long as Bonaparte chooses to do without trade, and to inter- dict all commercial intercourse. The state of the war in Spain, and tile junction of Generals Martnont aud Sonlt, with the relief of Badajoz, and the success ofSehliet at Tarragona, are themes of congratulation and triumph. The speech is seasoned with the usual abuse of this country, and with expressions of Bona- parte's desire for peace and the freedom of the seas. He says nothing about the Synod of Cardinals and Bishops held at Paris: he has found them refractory, and some have been sent to prison. Bonaparte has lately passed two decrees, which it would be difficult to match among the most sanguin- ary decrees of bis most sanguinary predecessors, Robespierre and Marat. By one of these decrees, no young lady who has an annual income of 6000 francs, or above, is to marry without his pel- mission 1 — By the second decree, any person detected 111 a correspondence with the subjects of Great Britain, and in drawing or negociating bills of exchange, is to be shot within twelve hours after detection, if found guilty. A letter has been received, dated Rio Janeiro, 1st Qf May. in which it is stated,, that the Princess Char- lotte, the wife of the Prince Regent of Portugal, is contriving with the concurrence of the Spanish Am- bassador, the Marquis de Yrujo, to take possession of the territory of Buenos Ayres, situated on the north coast of the River Plate. Every day almost is received some account tending to strengthen the opinion that a change has taken place in the politics of Russia, favourable to this country. The important intelligence is just received that two Russian harbours are to be declared free ports, in order to favour the commercial intercourse with this country, viz. Archangel, in the North Sea, and Liebaa, iu the Baltic. There are licences iu town for shipping goods di- rect from this country to Russia. They are signed by the Emperor Alexander, and are principally for the importation of drugs. An Auholt mail arrived yesterday, by which letters have been received from various parts of the Baltic. Those from St. Petersburg!! are to the 7th, and from Gottenburgh to the 21st inst. The exchange was at 13 § to ISf. An additional duty of 10 per cent, is to be imposed in Prussia, on those articles of colonial produce which, under the present law, are admissible into her territory. Cupt. Serrell, of liis Majesty's ship Holder, 011 10th iust. captured the Flink Danish privateer boat, having on board one swivel and 15 men, with small arms.— Lieut.

The Prince Regent lias ordered that the 99tli reg. of foot shall in future he styled the 99th, or Prince of Wales's Tipperary regiment. The reinforcements embarked at Plymouth and Portsmouth, for the army in Portugal, have sailed for their destination. They consist, in all, of about 6000 men. Wolsey's Tomb- house, at Windsor, obtained by that prelate by grant from Henry the 8th, is under alteration and repair, and intended to be the burial- place of the Royal Family. It is built after the man- ner of the Egyptian vaults, 100 feet in length, 30 feet in width, and 14 feet iu depth. In the recess at tbe end of the vault are intended to be deposited the remains of their present Majesties; and along tbe passage are arranged depositories for the future Kings of England. A subaltern officer of one of the Bengal native regi- ments has lately arrived in this country, in order to policit redress of the Court ef Directors, under very extraordinary circumstances. The appellant, it ap- pears, having distinguished himself iu the field on many occasions, had on that account been promoted from the ranks. Tbe circumstance occasioned a jea- lousy among some of his countrymen, who'arensed him of the crime of sorcery. However ridiculous the charge, he was tried and found guilty by a court- mar- tial, and dismissed the service. The extensive grape vine at Hampton- Court ex- hibits at this time 2750 branches ofthe finest fruit that this celebrated tree has overproduced. Tuesday the proprietors of a Portsmouth coach were convicted by the magistrates at Union- hall in penalties tn the amount of 501. for carrying more outside passengers than allowed by the Act. Mad. Blanchfti'd, in one of her late ascents from Pari:, in. a balloon, was caught in a storm of hail and rain; but notwithstanding ascended so high, that she was lost in clouds and whirlwinds, and did not alight from her balloon near Vincennes till fhe day after she arose from' Paris. In consequence of the prodigious height the balloon ascended, Madame Blancbard fainted, and continued insensible for some time. Her ascension occupied 14 hours and a half. A meteoric stone, ol the weight oflSlbs. fell to the earth on 1st March, in the village of Konleghowsk, in tile government of Tfchernigoff, in Russia; its fall was preceded, by three violent claps of thunder. When it was dugout from the depth of more than three feet, throngha thick layer of ice, it still possessed heat: it was remarked, that at the third clap of thun- der, there was an explosion, with a loud hissing noise, and throwing out a great quantity of sparks. A satire 011 equestrian theatricals, under the title of " Quadrupeds of Quedlinburgh," was produced at the Ilaymarket Theatre 011 Friday night, it is tlifc Ger- man play of the Anti- Jocobin, with a prologue, ail introductory scene between the manager and the author, and a concluding exhibition of battle, bine lights, and cavalry. The cavalry were centaurs of a new description, half man and half basket work, and their appearance and spirit were admirable. The performance was rather too long; but was received upon the whole with great applause.— A similarsatire was produced last week, with equal sncsess, at the Lyceum Theatre, under the title of " Quadrupeds, or the Manager's Lust Kick." The ground work of this latter piece is Foote's tragedy of " the Tailors." This morning, the lottery, to be drawn 011 Nov. 19th, was contracted for by Messrs. Bish and Co. There were only two parties attended, viz. Messrs. Bish and Co. and Messrs, Richardson and Co. The for- mer bid 141. is. 9d. and the latter 141. Is. A footpad stopped the carriage of Mr. Morris, sur- geon, on Hounslow Heath, 011 Thursday, and robbed Mr. Morris of two five- pound notes ; two ladies in the coach tremulously held forth their money, begging him to take it, but he gallantly refused, saying, he should have a kiss a- pieee from them instead— it was, he said, the first, and should be the last robbery he ever committed— he was a stout well- looking man, and had the accent of an Irishman. JAMES BELCHER.— This once celebrated pugilist, and a formidable champion of England, died yester- day, at his house, the Coach and Horses, Frith- street, Soho, in the 31st year of his age, after a lingering ill- ness of two years, which had reduced him to a mere skeleton. The deceased was a descendant ofthe cele- brated pugilist Slack, of Norwich, whom he far ex- celled in ail the requisites of boxing, with the excep- tion of strength. On Sunday last, Crib, the celebrated pugilist, ar- rived in Aberdeen, on a visit to a gentleman there. He is at present in training at Ury, the seat of Cap- tain Barclay, preparatory to the great battle to be fought with Molinenx, on the 27th September, near Doneaster. On this match not less than 50,0001. are already betted; and Crib stakes 100 guineas of his own money 011 the issue. Betting, however, is equal. This celebrated boxer is at present the champion of England, having fought and gained the following pitched battles, besides several casual ones, in which he never was beat, viz. with George Maddox, Jan. 1805; Thomas Blake, Feb. 1805; Ikey Pig, May, 1805; Richman, the black, Oct. 1805; James Bel- cher, 1807; Horton, May, 1808; Gregson, Oct. 1808; Belcher, Feb. 1809; and Molineux, Dec. 1310. Crib is now only thirty years of age. INVASION. From the recent indications that have been making at Boulogne, and fiom the necessity, the imperious necessity, we may say, which Bonaparte must feel to maintain an audacious front againt this country, the last strong hold of Europe, where the lamp of freedom is yet kept alive, and where nations gioauiivg under the oppressor may still light tbe torch ot resistance, we are persuaded that, at no distant period, we shall bear the threat of invasion renewed. We will never say, as some have said, that invasion is a farce. Whatever puts the life, even of a single individual in jeopardy, ought no* to be regarded lightly, still less what affects the interests and feelings of a whole community. We have never considered the threat of invasion as wholly to be disregarded. Under some circumstances it may certainly be effected, but. never, we will contend, to an extent seriously to endanger the safety of the king dom. Should the French, favoured by winds or tides, get over, according to the burthen of the old song, " Still Britons they'll find to receive them on shore." We do not at all mean to deny the possibility of in- vasion, but there is that heart m the country, we will maintain, which ought to set all our fears at rest with respect to this tremendous bug- bear which the enemy holds over our heads. The only. invasion that Fiance, in the present relative condition of her mai itime foice, could make on England, would be productive only of individual anxiety and distress, in the same way as if we n'ngetf their coasts, without piodncing any national results. We believe, however, that fortified as all our vulnerable posts are, that it is not even possible forthe enemy to effect a landing without an adequate chas- tisement. We speak of those military posts chiefly which are to be seen in Sussex, where invasion will be most seriously threatened, and is most to be appre- hended. To venture his forces against, our extremities, is what Bonaparte will not attempt, but, like a know- ing politician, he threatens our vitals, because his game is desperate, and it is indifferent to him what stakes he hazards.— Is the condition of this country such that we should fear the attempts of such a man ? Is not every heart and hand united to resist every overture of this military ruffian? Everywhere that Frenchmen and Englishmen have met, since French- men have been under their present ruler, have not Englishmen maintained their ancient superiority ? l. ong may they uphold their superiority, and, as at Barrosa and at Albuera, shew how much superior the British forces are to any which France can produce I While the United Kingdom continues to yield such heroes, what have we to diead from invasion ? Ought we not rather to be satisfied that the threat of the ene- my will be turned on himself? In the great contest in , vhieh we are engaged, the continental system, 01 any other system, in which we may happen to find our interests clash, is of no consequence; the grand con- clusion to which we look is, is England safe; is the common wealth sound at heart, as our ancestors would have said, so that nothing was to be apprehended in- jurious to the common cause, to the lives and safety, as we may say, " ofthe most thinking people of Eu- rope?" These words, though used in derision by one of ourselves, ought not to pass without notice. In deeds of arms, the British people have shewn them- selves unrivalled. It is 110 small stake for which they are now contesting. It is not merely whether they shall change their present form of government and authority, but whether, after subsisting through along series of ages under a mild form of government, they shall yield themselves to a military despotism ? We fear no such results, hut we only wish our readers to be imbued with true English sentiments and opinions, and to hold alliance with France, under her present Governor, as the grave in which the happiness of both countries may, most probably, be buried.

IT has become an uniform duty, week after week, for n-. to report the melancholy situation of onr afflicted Sovereign; but we rejoice to say that fie bulletins ot this- week furnish some faint hopes ofhis amendment; they are as follow: July 26. His Majesty continues nearly in the same state.— July v7. His Majesty is no better to- day.-- J « ! y28. His Majesty is neurit as be was yesterday.— July 29. Tbe King has hail several hours sleep in the course of the night. The swnptoms of his Majesty's disorder arc much the same.— July 30. The King has passed another good night; in other respects his Ma- jesty remains the same.— July 31. 1 he general fea- tures of the King's disorder continue much the same, buthis Majesty's strength is improved.— Aug. X. There is no alteration in his Majesty's state since yesterday. Tbe bulletins since Monday have been favourable, and the sleep and food his Majesty has taken, have g. vcn him some increase of strength. It is said, too, that his Majesty has been able to take a short walk in his apartments. The following are extracts from the most respect- able papers of to- day : — " We had the pleasure, last night, to learn, that a material improvement has taken place in His Majesty's health. His appetite has returned ; and his strength from this circumstance, and from the greater portion of sleep he has lately had, lias very considerably in- creased."— Times. " The accounts of last night stated his Majesty to he in a tranquil state, and that his spirits as well as his bodilv strength had been somewhat improved. The refreshment, which he has lately been prevailed upon to take, has produced this favourable effect, and some are of opinion that his present state may be considered as indicative of the crisis of Ins disorder having happily passed away.— Amen!"— Morning Past. " We stated yesterday the favourable change that had taken place in bis Majesty's afflicting malady. He eat some solid food on Monday, and in the mom- ins of Tuesday his constitution appeared to have rallied, and he continued more quiet throughout the day. The Physicians now inform us, that, though the bodily strength is improved, the features of the disorder ( a new personification ofthe disease) continue much the same. We hear that they are now convinced there is an effusion on the brain, for experience shews them, that whatever changes his Majesty's bodily frame under- goes, and whatever refreshments he obtains, either by food or sleep, the mental disorder remains nearly the same. With this certain symptom ofthe malady so appa- rent, it is in vain to hope tor his Majesty's restoration to sotmi health, though the strength of his constitution may evenyetprolong his lifefora time."— Morn. Chron. " We trust it will not be long before we shall be furnished with an ample refutation of this statement, relative to an effusion on the brain,— now for the first time communicated to the public."— English Chron. # iocestet\ SATURDAY, AUG. 3. We received this morning some more Paris papers of a recent date, from which we have made the fol- lowing extiact:—" By letters from the Southern De- partments, we learn that the coasting trade is much more safe and active than in former years. We no longer see English ships on the coast, and we begin to send by sea merchandize destined to Leghorn, Naples, & c. The Sicilian craizers dare not approach our coasts. Marseilles keeps up commercial relations with the ports of Barbary, and does something in the levant tratle. The grand fleet is still at Toulon, and performs evolutions. The greatest activity reigns in the docks— uew ships of the line are building. The chief force of the English is near Minorca. There have been but few ships for these two months at Mes- sina. The greater part of the British troops have left . Sicily."— Journal del Empire ) Bonaparte, it appears, is making most extraordi- nary exertions to collect stamen, for manning the ships of war he is fitting out in the ports of France and Holland. Letters from tbe coast of France, dated the 28th, state, that great numbers of foreign seamen had recently been conducted to the different depots prepared for their reception. These men are con- veyed to their destination under escorts of gendar- merie, and are very strongly guarded. The kind of naval conscription which Bonaparte had established, has not been found sufficiently productive to answer his present demands, and he has issued orders to the Hans Towns to furuish immediately, in proportion to their population, a number of men fitted for the naval service. These orders, we understand, have already been carried into execution ill a very rigorous manner at Hamburgh. The French governor of that city, it is said, caused the gates to be shut during thrte suc cessive days, and after sezing every man who had been at sea, and a great proportion of those employed in the navigation of the river, sent them off under a strong guard for Holland. It is supposed that these men are desrined for the fleet in the Scheldt. What excellent crews for the French ships must be obtained by this ransack of seamen from the countries ruined by Bona- parte, aud detesting both him and France! The decree issued by Bonaparte, imposing the pe- nalty of death upon all persons delected in a corres- pondence with Great Britain, and in drawing or ne- giiciatmg bills ot exchange, is done with the view of encouraging the importation of gold coin into France, and of preventing altogether dealings by bills. Thus, persons coining to buy goods in French ports must not pay for them by bills upon London, but must bring specie. Letters have been received from the Carracc. as, dated .->* late as the 2d of June, in which it is stated, *• that the revolution proceeded with every prospect of success in that settlement; that the adjacent pro- vinces were firmly united in thesame cause; that in ail classes the utmost enthusiasm prevailed in its support, and that the wise measures of the established govern- ment bad attracted confidence, invited respect, and enforced obedience." It is reported that Sir James Saumarez has bad on Iioard his fleet for some time, military accoutrements for BO, 000 men. A great number of pursers and warrrant officers beta go nt of employ, in consequence of so many ships having been broken up, the Lords of the Admiralty have very judiciously determined, that no additional warrant officers should be appointed until the whole of the officers now without ships shall be again in ac- tive service. Letters from Dublin state, that the election of dele- fates lo the Catholic Committee had taken place iu several parishes ofthe city, and that the counties were prepureing to return the number of mauagersappointed bv the last aggregate meeting. ' Mr. Hase, on the Stock Exchange this morning, stated, that the Bank had agreed to make all the future payments upon the Omnium till tiie 28tb of February. The China fleet is hourly expected, and that from India about the middle of next month. By a remarkable coincidence of circumstances, it has happened, that four noble Dukes, all the residents of one street, Piccadilly, have died successively with- in so short a period of each other, vis. 1st, the Duke of Portland ; sd, the Duke of Qtieensbnry; 3( 1, the Duke of Grafton; and 4th, the Duke of Devonshire. Mr. Fawkener's death was so sudden, that bis ser- vant had no knowledge of his master's indisposition when he went up at Ills usual honr to dress him, and found that be had just expired. He lias left two daughters, remarkable for their personal and mental accomplishments, to each of whom be has bequeathed a fortune ef 40,0001. one of whom, as report says, is to be united to Lord Walpole, and the other to Mr. H. Cavendish, sou of Lord G. Cavendish.- The office of Clerk ofthe Privy Council, vacant by the death of Mr. Fawkener, is of fhe first importance, and the emoluments of which are estimated at 4,0001. per an- num.

The Treasurers of our Infirmary have received 501. for the use of the charity, being a legacy from Sirs. Jackson, ofSneed Park, in this county. A gentleman of this city, who is a Proprietor of the Bank of England, has received a letter from the Governor, stating, that as soon as an adequate supply could be obtained from tbe mint, this place would be amply furnished with the new silver tokens; so that there is very little doubt but the hoards of small silver will soon re- appear, especially as the late Act of Par- liament prevents it being sold at a premium.

Many loyal and constitutional toasts were given; and the healths of those gentlemen who had supported the worthy Baronet were drank with enthusiasm. The company remained till a late hour, and the meeting was enlivened by a variety of appropriate songs. The influence of the sun upon the wheat has been very perceptible within the last few days. The crops are every where most promising, both in quantity and quality.

The daughter of Lucien Bondparte, we are informed from respectable authority, is shortly to be married to a Mr. Charlton, a young man of 24 years, and possess- ing a considerable landed property.

On Saturday, John and Betty Sadler were commit- ted to our county gaol, by John Timbrel), Clerk, charged with breaking open the workshop of Moses Sexty, at Greet, and stealing therefrom sundry pieces of timber. Elizabeth Harris, of Ross, has been committed to Hereford goal, for trial at the next sessions, as a vaga- bond. This woman practised tbe calling of what is vulgarly termed a " Fortune Teller;" and much praise is due to the Magistrates of Ross, for tiie effectual manner in which they have put a stop to her imposi- tion. Thesfollowing melancholy accidents happened at Tewkesbury last week :— Oil Wednesday, a little girl was killed by her brother, who took up a gun, not knowing it was loaded, and discharged the contents into her head.— And on the following day, a barge- man, named Walsh, on going on board the vessel to which he belonged, after being out all night, aud it is supposed somewhat intoxicated, fell overboard and was drowned. Coroner's verdict in both cases, acci- dental death.• A few days since Michael Lynch, a private in the 30th reg. foot, stabbed Mr. Edw, Gadsby, the land- lord of the Green Dragon, Dei by, in the low er part of his belly, in so shocking a manner as to occasion his death. Lynch, with some of his comrades, had been engaged in an affray in the street? some time be- fore, and returning to Ins quarters with his drawn bayonet, he plunged it into the body of the deceased without any provocation. Mr. Gadsby has left four young helpless orphan , his wife having died about a year ago. Lynch is committed to the county gaol. About two o'clock, on Saturday morning, an alarm- ing fire broke out in the soap and candle loft of Messrs. Brown and Kibble, chandlers, Ross. The flames raged with such fury as to threaten Ihe destruc- tion of a whole row of houses ; but by the spirited exertions of the inhabitants, aided by two excellent engines, the fire was happily got under, after the workshop was burnt down, and considerable damage done to the dwelling- house and another adjoining. The premises were fortunately insured. CAUTION.— We are requested to insert the follow- ing extract from 32d Geo. 3d, c. 45, sec. 8— where " It is enacted, that if it shall be made appear to any two Justices that any poor person shall not use proper means to get employment, or if lie is able to work, by his neglect of work, or by spending his money in an alehouse, or places of bad repute, or in any other im- proper manner, aud shall not apply a proper propor- tion of money earned by him towards tbe support of bis wife and family, by which they or any of tliein shall become chargeable to their parish— he shall be considered as an idle and disorderly person, and punished accordingly by the said Act." Excessive Drinking.— Tuesday, John Sadler, la- bourer, of Wotton- mider- Edge, after drinking three pints of gin at one public- house, went to another; where boasting of his prowess in drinking whilst a soldier, he made a bet with a person in the house, that he would drink a quart of gin ill an hour! The liquor being brought iu, he took off the half of it at one draught, and soon after finished the remainder with as little ceremony ! He then boasted of the feat, and the instant afterwards fell down, and expired! ASSIZES.

Mr. Justice Lawrence, for a breach of promise of marriage, iu which a verdict was obtained for defendant, to the satisfaction of a crowded Court.— Mr. Daiincey's speech, for the defendant, was one of the most elo- quent and impressive ever delivered.— He stated that his client was a gentleman of high respectability and fortune, and that he came into Court for the express purpose that it might not be said it was possible a man of his character could have made such promise; and though several offers of compromise had been made him, he very properly rejected them, fully conscious of his own rectitude, possessing the mens s'lbi conscia- recti.

MINUTES OF EVIDENCE ( Continued from our last.) MAY 8, 1811. The Lord Walsingham in the Chair. The Order of Adjournment was read. The Minutes of the last Committee were read.— Then Sir Samuel Romillv of Counsel for the Petitioner stated, he would now offer in evidence a deposition made by Parker upon a Bill filed in the Court of Chancery, between the Honourable William Fitzhardinge Ber- keley commonly called Lord Dursley, the Honourable Frederick Maurice Fitzhardinge Berkeley, the Ho- nourable Agustus Fitzhardinge- Berkeley, and the Honourable Francis Henry Fitzhardinge Berkeley, infants, under the aire of twenty- one years, by the Eight Honourable William Lord Craven, their next friend, Plaintiffs ; and Thomas Moreton Fitzhardinge Berkeley, otherwise Thomas Moreton Fitzhardinge Berkeley calling himself Lord Dursley, the Honour- able George Charles Grantley Fitzhardinge Berkeley, infants, by the Riaht Honourable William Lord Grnntiey their guardian; and the Honourable George Cranfield Berkeley, and George' Henry Frederick Berkeley an infant his son, by the said George Cranfield Berkeley his father and guardian, Defend- ants ; antl which Bill was filed for the purpose of per- petuating testimony of the legitimacy of the said infants, Plaintiffs in the said Bill; and being heard to state the grounds upon which he offered the same, as a deposition; Mr. Attorney General on behalf of the Crown was heard in objection to the said deposition, as such, being received in evidence.— Sir Samuel Romilly was beard in reply. The Counsel weredirected to withdraw. The Counsel were again called in, and the Lord Walsingham informed them, that the Committee had resolved that the deposition offered could not be re- ceived in evidence as a deposition. Sir Samuel Romilly next requested permission to call a witness to explain a circumstance spoken to by Mr. Tudor in his evidence on Friday last. Whereupon JOHN HONE was again called in and exa- amined. Are Messrs. Forster, Cooke, and Frcre, the Solici- tors for the claimant in this case? They are.— Arc von a managing clerk of Messrs. Forster, Cooke, and Frere in this business"? I am.— Were yotr present on Friday last, when Mr. Tudor was examined? I was. — Did you hear Mr. Tudor state to their Lordships 1] is having seen some deposition in a cause in the Court of Chancery? I did.— Are you the peison whom lie d( Scribed to have shewn him that document? I am— Be so good as to state to their Lordships what it was that yoy shewed, and which he described to be a deposition? I think it was the day before the Faster Rece son which the Committee last sat, or the first day alter the Easter Recess, I was standing at your Lordships' b. tr, waiting for the Committee sitting; Mr. Tudor was also below the bar: the Counsel were here, and their bags were here with their papers iu them. Mr. Tudor was nndi r an apprehension that he shou d be called that day. Seeing me there he called me aside, and told me that he was net quite certain that he could be precise as to Ihe time of his leaving Glocester and Mr. Parker's; » id he then asked me, if I could shew him what he called the deposition. I knew perfectly well what he meant, it was nothing more than one of the Counsel's briefs, iu which it was • stated his being with Mr. Parker, aud when he had left Mr. Parker: I told him I could. I eame to one of the gentleman's bags, and took out one of the briefs; there were a vast many persons below the bar, I did not think it right to open it there. I went out of the House withliim, and went I think into the Writ- ing Clerk's Room; I then turned to that part wliert it was stated; he looked at it, read it, told me he was satisfied, returned it, and I came into the House and put it into the Counsel's bag again.— Have you at any time shewn him any thing else which he could Ijave mistaken for that deposition? I do not think I ever spoke to Mr. Tudor before. Cross- examined. Have youseenMr. Tudor at Lady Berkeley'shonse ? I think never to the best of my recollection ; I never saw Mr. Tudor at Lady Berkeley's: I think I did not know him except bv name till this Petition was before this House; and that I never sa\ y him till I saw him below your Lordships' bar.— Are you sure you never shewed him any paper of any kind rn the house of Lady Berkeley? Certainly— That paper which you did shew to Mr. Tudor, had you at any time before shewn to Lady Berkeley? Never.— Have you shewn to Lady Berkeley the copy of the deposi- tions taken in the Court of Chancery ? Certainly not; it is impossible I should shew Lady Berkeley copics ofthe depositions.— Papers purporting to be the sub- stance of the depositions ? No, certainly not— Have yotl shewn any paper on the subject of the cause to Lady Berkeley ? I do not know that I have; I cannot say what confidentially may have been entrusted to jne to deliver to Lady Berkeley from those who employ me; but I do not know that I have.— What do yon mean by confidentially entrusted to you? I may have taken some papers sealed up; but I have no knowledge of having taken to Lady Berkeley the depositions or the substance of what the witnesses had stated— You do not know if you ever did carry any papers to Lady Berkeley, what their contents were ? I mean to say this: that it is possible in the course of my going there at various times, that I may have taken papers there, the contents of which I may not have known; but I do not know that I ever did— Do not you know that Lady Berkeley has been made ac- quainted with the result of the enquiries that were fnade subsequent to her first examination in this House, and prior to her cross- examination? I do not know it of my own knowledge.— Have you no reason to believe that to be so? Mr. Moore of Counsel for the Petitioner objected to the question.— The Solicitor General was heard in support ofthe same.— Mr. Meoie was heard in reply. The witness was directed to withdraw— The Counsel were directed to withdraw— The Counsel were again called in. And the Lord Walsingham informed them, that the Committee had resolved that the question could not be put. Then John Hone was again called in, and asked ; You are understood to say you had not had personal and verbal communications with Lady Berkeley upon the subject? Certainly not— Nor were ever present when any were made to Lady Berkeley? None that I recollect.— Have you been present when either of the Solicitors for the Claimant have been in the com- pany of Lady Berkeley since her Ladyship's examin- ation at this bar? Certainly not.— The question is as to her first examination; her examination in chief? I believe not.— Are you sure of that? 1 think I am.— How soon before that, if at all, was it that you had seen either of the gentlemen at Lady Berkeley's? It is father difficult for me to state that.— Was it w ithin a mouth before ? I have been at various limes cer- tainly at Lady Berkeley's— The question is not as to your being at Lady Berkeley's, but when yon saw- either of the gentlemen who are Solicitors for the Claimant, at Lady Berkeley's; how long previous to bet- Ladyship's examination? Perhapsa month before. — Which of them was present at the time you speak of? I have seen both Mr. Forster and Mr. Frere at different times with Lady Berkeley, but at neither of those times, or at any one of those times did tliev ever speak before me on the subject of the examina- tion iu this Hott^ e.— Do you mean to say that you did not hear what passed between them? Certainly not; 1 have not the least hesitation in stating that I never did. I have been there at various times on other business, iu other rooms; I have wanted to speak to Lady Berkeley on other business, but then Lady Berkeley has come out to speak to me, and then I retired.— Mr. Forster has seen Lady Berkeley, and Mr. Frere has also seen her; but they never conversed in my presence on this subject.— That other business you allude to was private business of Lady Berkeley's own ? Not at all relating to the business before this House. lie- examined. Lady Berkeley resides in the house of Lord Berke- ley, and where he resides in London? She does,— The witness was directed to withdraw. Then Mr. Serjeant Best stated to the Committee, that he had no further evidence to offer to the Com- mittee on the part of the Claimant, till the opinion of the Learned Judges was given upon the questions referred to them; the further evidence he proposed to adduce consisting of the several letters written and the declarations made by the late Earl of Berkeley, which he had mentioned in his opening of the case on the part of the Claimant. The Counsel were directed to withdraw. The Learned Judges desiring further time to answer the questions which had been propounded to them . ordered, tliat the Learned Judges do deliver their opinion upon the questions propounded to them, on Monday next. Proposed to adjourn the Committee to Monday next, at two of the clock. Accordingly, adjourned to Monday next, two of the clock. MAY IS, 1811. The Lord Walsingham in the Chair The Order of Adjournment was read. The Minutes ofthe last Committee were read. The Counsel were called iu. Sir Samuel Romilly stated, that he was desirous to put a few questions to the Lord Chief Justice ofthe Common Pleas, npon the subject of his former exa- mination. Whereupon, the Right Honourable the LORD CHIEF JUSTICE of the Common Pleas attending in his place on the Woolsack, was again examined as follows: In tl* evidence which your Lordship gave before, you stated that you ditl not recollect whether, when yotl were first consulted by a lady upon this subject, you did or did not know it was Lady Berkeley. Has your Lordship, since yon were last examined, had occasion to refresh your memory upon that subject? I certainly have endeavoured to recollect every thing that passed when Lady Berkeley first consulted me; and now I have a full impression npon my mind that she did not at first disclose to me who she w as. I should rather think in all probability she did ; but npon considering further I should rather think she- did not.— Does your Lordship recollect what was the subject upon which you were first consulted by Lady Berkeleyj I stated that circumstance to their Lord- ships before, when I was first asked that question, I certainly must have understood it was something re- lating to a second marriage, but I had no recollection of what passed ; but on recollecting the circumstance since, I very clearly remember, and have no doubt that her Ladyship consulted me on the prudence and propriety of a second marriage, with respect to the credibility or validity of that now called the first marriage; and after some conversation had passed respecting the propriety of a future marriage, I re- member now perfectly that Lady Berkeley, in a great degree of agitation, said to me, or exclaimed, " It was already done." That the second marriage had already taken place, or words to that effect; that leads tnc to conclude necessarily that what had been said before related to a future second marriage. — Your Lordship has stated that Lady Berkeley said in great agitation " that was already done f was that after or before your Lordship had given her your opi- nion upon the propriety of a second marriage?! suppose it was after I had given my opinion, from the nature of the thing ; for I perfectly recollect that was the circumstance, that with a great decree of agitation she either said, " Oh Sir, it is already done," or " there has been a second marriage."— Does your Lordship recollect what was the particular question on which your Lordship was consulted respecting the existence of the registry ? No; I do not think that any thing was said to me at that time about the regis- try ; a great deal was said about it two or three times afterwards; and a further conversation about the re- gistry was, when I suggested, and pressed indeed, the propriety of examining very accurately the regis- try; and it was determined upon at my chambers, by Lord Berkeley and Mr. Boodle, that the clergyman, Mr. Carrington, and another person, should be sent dc vvn immediately to Bet keley to search for the registry as accurately as possible.-- Your Lordship is understood to have said, that in the first consultation you had, no mention was made of the existence ofthe registry? I have no recollection that it w- as; I will not say that there was no mention, but I do not recollect particu- larly any thing of that; very likely it might, when the prudence or propriety of a second marriage was talked of; but I cannot say that I have any distinct recollection of it— Then, according to your Lord- ship's recollection, there was one consultation with Latlv Berkeley alone, and, as your Lordship thinks, more than one with Lord Berkeley.— Yes, I think with Lord Berkeley there were several, I cannot tell how many at present, and am not able to say when the last consultation was, though it may be found. When I pressed the necessity of having the registry accurately searched, I should imagine that Lady Berkeley in her conversation stated to me that the re- gistry existed of the first marriage, as a reason why the second marriage had been celebrated; but I have no recollection of it, but from the nature of the thing I can hardly believe but it must have passed.— Has your Lordship any recollection of what was stated when you were first consulted by Lord Berkeley res- pecting the existence of the registry? I think the first thing said to me, and which I suppose was when Lady Berkeley came to me herself, was, that there was no registry of the first marriage, from the nature of the conversation, though I have no particular recol- lection of if.— Is your Lordship to be understood to mean th; C there never had been any registry, or that it was not iu existence? I believe, but I speak hire from a loose recollection, and not any thing certain ; but I believe that the representation made was, that there was no registry existing, certainly I understood that there was no registry existing; but there was nothing said, as well as I recollect, when I first saw- Lady Berkeley, of a registry having existed, but hav- ing been destroyed. Cross- examined. Is your Lordship to be understood that yotl did or did not give any opinion respecting the propriety of a second marriage? I dare say I did, but I do not at all recollect what that opinion was.— Whether it was in favour nf or against it? It was hy word of month.— Your Lordship does not recollect whether it was an opinion in favour of a second marriage or against it? No; but from the exclamation of Lady Berkeley on her speaking to me w ith great agitation; saying it was already done, it is probable that I might have said a second marriage might raise questions respecting the first. Mr. Attorney General being asked if he had any questions to put to the Lord Chief Justice, said he had not. Q. ( By a Lord.) Can your Lordship fix nearly the time when the first conversation took place be- tween your Lordship and Lady Beikeley? No, I cannot; it must have been after the second marriage from the nature of the conversation; and I cannot say that I have any doubt in my own mind ( though I have no particular recollection of it) that at the time 110 existing registry of the first marriage was mention- ed in her conversation with me, and I believe a part ofthe conversation was to the same effect that Mr. Carrington's letter to me was, whether the existence of a first marriage would be destroyed by there being no registry of it— Whether your Lordship was informed that there were any living persons who had been present at the marriage? I believe not; but I must have said I dare say in answer, that if there were any witness, that witness might prove the marriage, and the want of the registry would not invalidate the marriage.— Whether you were ever informed that there had been a registry of the marriage in tiie hand- writing of Lord Berkeley? No, I believe not; the re- gistry was very soon brought up to town, I think in the course of a very few days I saw it— Have you the. means of ascertaining the various dates ofthe consul- tations? I have no means myself, I have desired my clerk to look for ii; bnt the only paper which exists was not within his reach. If there is any trace of its existing he will there find it; I have not under my own care any paper relating to transactions iu busi- ness iu the year 1799, if there is such paper, the per- son who was my clerk may be able to lay his hand upon it. He says there was such a paper, and per- haps in that paper something may be found of the time, not when that consultation with Lady Berke- ley took place, but when the last consultations w ere held.— When tiie registry was brought up did your Lordship see it? Yes; very soon after.— Has your Lordship seen it since? I rather believe I have seen it once since, if not oftener; it is a great while ago. — When your Lordship saw the registry, were you informed that the body of the registry, though not the signature, was in Lord Berkeley's hand- writing? I either was informed of it immediately, or knew of it- very shortly after; I fancy as soon as it was brought up; in a very few days after the search I saw it; and then I think I understood that the body of the re- gistry was the writing of Lord Berkeley. The Coun- sel were directed to withdraw. The Committee ad- journed during pleasure. The Committee was again resumed. The Counsel were again called iu; and the Lord Walsingham in- formed them, that the Committee had resolved that the deposition ofthe Earl of Beikeley, offered in evi- dence on the Sd of May last, as a declaration, could not be received. Then Mr. Serjeant Best, of Cottnsel for the Peti- tioner, informed the Committee, that lie felt it his duty to state, that the remaining evidence he propos- ed to offer, consisted of two letters, written by the late Earl of Berkeley, one to a Peer of this House, the other to the Prince Regent; though he could not state that the matter in question was not in dispute previous to either of those, letters being written. There were also several declarations made by the late Earl of Berkeley at different times to his Royal High- ness the Prince Regent, though he was not certain that any of them w ere made previous to the discussion which took place in this House in theyear 1799. If that proceeding should be considered as a sufficient agitation of the matter now in question to affect the evidence he so had to offer, he could only bow w ith submission to the tleci- ion of the House; buf if it should be thought ailmissable, he was ready to produce it in any manner the House in their wisdom might think proper to adopt on the occasion. Mr. Solicitor General was heard to object to the evidence, as being precisely of the sam- s nature as that which the House had just decided could not Vie re- ceived. The Counsel were directed to withdraw. Moved fo resolve, That the evidence now offered on behalf of the Petitioner cannot be received, The same was agreed to and ordered accordingly. The Counsel were called in, and informed by the Lord Walsingham, that the evidence now offend on behalf of the Petitioner cannot be received. The Counsel were directed to withdraw. Proposed to adjourn this Committee to Wednesday next, at half- past two o'clock. Accordingly, adjourned to Wed- nesday next at half- past two o'clock, MAY 15, 1811. The Loyd Walsingham in Ihe Chair. The Clrtjcr of Adjournment was read. The Minutes of the last Committee were read. The Counsel were called in. *„ Then Sir Samuel Romilly as Counsel for the Peti- tioner, stated, that he had been given to understand that it was the desire of their Lordships that, previous to his summing up the evidence on the part of the Claimant, the several registries of the parish of Berke- ley, which had been ordered to be brought before their Lordships, should be produced. Whereupon the Reverend CALEB CARRINGTON was again called in, and producing fire books, icas examin- ed as follows: Q. ( By a Lord.) What books have yotl there ? These are all the registry books of the parish of Ber- keley which ever came into my custody, with the ex- ception of two. Those tw o books were delivered by me in the year 1799, to a Committee of this House, and not returned. No. 1. Register of the parish of Berkeley, containing Christenings from 1676 to 1707. Marriages from 1677 to 1707. Burials from 1676 to 1707. No. 2. Christenings from 1.707 to 1757. Marriages from 1707 to 1757. Burials from 1707 to 1757. No. S. Christenings from 1757 to 1787. Burials, from 1757 to 1787. Christenings from 1787 to the present time. Burials from 1787 to the present time. Banns from 1790 to 1801. Marriages from 1790 to 1801. " What do you know ofthe death of Mr. Htipsnian? I only know by hearsay. I believe it is tolerably au- thentic. Some time after I heard he was tlead, I applied for information upon the subject to an office for the assurance of livt s, in which I had understood his life had been insured. I have been vicar so many years that I have no doubt of his being dead. I suc- ceeded to him.— Where did yon apply for information? It was at the Equitable Assurance Office, Blackfriars Bridge.— Do yon know of any proof of his death laid before the Bishop of Glocester, before yon were pre- sented to the living ? I laid no proof before him.— Do you know of any fact connected with his death or in- terment? I do not,— Has he a widow living? I be- lieve he has.— Do you know where she resides? She resided at Bath the last time I heard. Then the book of the registry of" banns and mar- riages produced in the year 1799, was shewn to the witness and he was asked ; Look at the registry of the years 1783 and 178- 1, and state if you know whose hand- writing the several entries in pages 8 and 9 are ? I do not. I believe they are all of one hand- writing, but! do not know of whom.— Look at that at the bottom of page 9. Is that the same hand writing as the others? I think that is rather doubtful; I should apprehend that was not the same hand- writing.— Yon cannot form any belief whose hand- writing it is? I cannot.— Is there any other book containing a regis- try of banns at that time besides that which is now shewn you ? I do not understand the question.— Is there any other book containing a registry of banns published at that time ( 1783 and 1784) except that ? To the best of my know ledge there is not.— None of these are subscribed by the minister, was that the practice in the parish of Berkeley? At present they are not subscribed by myself; most likely these were written by the clerk.— Who was clerk when you succeeded to the vicarage of Berkeley? The clerk de facto was Henry Clarke, the officiating mail.— Was there any other person who was appointed chhk at that time ? I believe not; not regularly appointed at that time.— Do yon know how long Henry Clarke had been officiating clerk? No, I do not.— Was John Clarke ever officiating clerk ? I do not recollect ever to have seen hirn officiate.— Did you ever see him write ? I think I have.— Do you believe any of these entries in pages 8 and 9 to be his hand- writing? I cannot positively say, but I think they are; if any are not, No. 45, in page 9, I should think is not his ha., i- writing; it appeals manifestly to me to bt of a No. 4. No. different hand- writing— Do yon think that ( No. 45.) is Mr. Hupsman's hand- writing? I cannot say; Mr. Hupsman's band- writing varied at different times very much.— Did you know Mr. Thomas Hicks, who ap- pears to have sometimes officiated as curate ? I did not. — Then the registry ofbnrials in the parish cfBcrkc- ley, in the year 1810, this day delivered in, was shewn to the witness, and he was asked, Can you inform the Committee whose hand- writing these two words, " Frederick Augustus," are; it has been written the Right Honourable the Earl of Berkeley, and there are then inserted the words Frederick Augustus," in whose hand- writing are those two words ? I know not.— Do you mean to swear that you do not know whase hand- writing these two words are? Certainly I do.— Then the book ot banns, delivered in the year 1799, was shewn to the witness, and he was asked, — Doyoti know whose hand- writing these tw o words, " Frederick Augustus," are? It maybe Mr. Hups- mau's ; but I cannot positively say.— This registry of burials belongs to Berkeley now ? Yes,— Did you bury Lord Berkeley? No.— Were yon present at his funeral? No.— Whose hand- writing is the body of this registry, in which you find these words, " Frede- rick Augustus," interlined ? I should think the clerk's, Henry Clarke.— You see that is a different hand- writing? Certainly.— You see the words, " Frederick Augustus," arc of a different hand- writing ? They are. — Do you mean to say that you cannot form a belief whose hand- writing those words are ? No, I have no conception, not the least.— Whether or no you were instituted to the living of Berkeley on the death, the cession, or the resignation of Mr. Hupsnian ? On the death.— Is he said to have died and been buried at Berkeley? He was buried, I believe, at Cranford.— Whether it is the custom, in the diocese of Glocester, to deliver in transcripts every year of the marriages, births, and burials, at the annual visitation either of the Bishop or the Archdeacon ? I believe it is.— Did you ever trace in the Bishop's registry that transcript of Lord Berkeley's marriage? Never.— The marriage is said to have taken place in the month of March ? I believe it might, the book is here.— Tliffn, probably, as the visitation generally takes place in the month of June or July, that transcript would have been regis- tered in the Bishop's register ? If that registration had been in its proper place, that must have been the ease, but being concealed, it probably could not be transcribed, the- transcriber of the book could not have seen it.— As you have not seen that registry in the Bishop's record, voti do not know w hether that is the fact ? I do not.— Yon are understood in your for- mer examination to have said that Lord Berkeley never mentioned the circumstance of his first marriage to you till the time he v, as making out his return to the income tax; is that a right supposition? Yes.— He never before mentioned to you the circumstance of the first marriage ? No.— When he first mentioned to you that he had been married the first time, did he state that the register had been destroyed, or that the marriage had never been registered ? As far as my memory goes, that the marriage never had been regis- tered.— When did lie first inform you, that in point of fact the marriage had been registered ? About the time of his seeing Mr. Mansfield, the Counsel, in London.-—— When he first mentioned his marriage to yon, was Mr. Hnpsman alive or dead? Mr. Hnps- man was then dead.——- When he first mentioned the marriage ? Yes, when he first mentioned it.— When he told yon that the marriage hail never been registered, did he at the same time inform yon, that there were living witnesses of the marriage ? I do not recollect that he did.— You w ere a subscribing witness to the second marriage? I was.— At the time when you subscribed yourself as a witness to the second marriage you we're aware that Mr. Tudor was the other witness to the second marriage ? I was.— Did Mr. Tudor say or did he not say any thing of his hav- ing been a witness to any other marriage ? I do not recollect his saying any thing upon the subject—- You have said that the time when Lord Berkeley mention- ed the marriage to you first, was, when he was con- sulting Counsellor Mansfield, can you specify the month and year ? It was before he consulted Counsel- lor Mansfield ; it must have been about the beginning of February in the year 1799; it was only a few days before.— In the evidence which you gave in the year 1799 you proved the extract of the registry of the baptism of Thomas Moreton Fihthardinge, and stated at that time that you had compared that extract with the original ; do you now recollect so to have com- pared and proved that extract with the original ? Yes; it was omitted to be registered at. the time of the bap- tism, and was entered afterwards by me as an omis- sion, perhaps if the book is here it would explain it bet- ter.— Then the registry of baptisms in the year 1799 was shewn to the witness, and he said, It follows the bap- tism of the 25th of March 1799. When I was sent to enquire, on account of proving the pedigree, for the registries of different persons of Lord Berkeley's fami- ly, that of the Countess Dowager of Berkeley could not be found; Mr. Lewis the then curate went some where and sot information of the date of it. The baptism of Thomas Moreton Fitzhardinge, who was baptised by myself, had also been omitted to be regis- tered. I at that time having no connection with the parish, and merely acting in the family as chaplain to Lord Berkeley, recollecting the month in which he was baptized but not the day of the month, I made this entry at that time, ill the presence of Mr. Lewis the curate, and with his approbation, which entry is " 1796 omitted, Thomas Moreton Fitzhardinge, Son of the Earl and Countess of Berkeley, born October 19th, 1796 ; was baptized at Berkeley Castle, in De- cember following, by Caleb Carrington, Chaplain to the Earl of Berkeley."— Are yon to be understood that it was in 1799 that yotl made this correction in the re- gistry ? It was in 1799 ; this insertion in the registry is between the 25th of March and the 5th of May follow- ing.— And it was then on the 5th of June, in the same year, that you stated in your evidence, that you had compared the extract with the original ? With this very original.— Which original w as created in the month of May in the same year, is that to be so understood ? I did not know till I saw the books but that Mr. Lewis or some person by the direction of the family had register- ed it at that time, as is usually done where there are private baptisms, when the child is not carried to church, because at such a time the registry is uot in the hand of the officiating clergyman.— It docs not appear in the printed evidence of 1799, that any statement was made in that report of the omission and of the subsequent insertion of this registry ; whe- ther yon did in yonr evidence at the time you deliver- ed in this extract explain that circumstance ? 1 do not know that I did: I should have thought probably, that it. was unnecessary, as the establishment ofthe fast of this person's birth seemed to me to be the whole that was sought after by the enquiry.— Then you did consider this to be a correct and sufficient re- port of the entry, and the circumstance of so recent a correction of the entry not of sufficient importance to be reported? t beg leave to state, that that is not quite correct. This was no correction, for there ne- ver w- as any other entry on the subject.— Are you then to be understood that you did not deem it a material circumstance to state the entry of a baptism to have been made three years after it had taken place ? Cer- tainly, I did think it was not necessary; such omis- sions often happen, and are inserted as soon as they are recollected. The registry of the Countess Dow- ager of Berkeley was in the same situation, never en- tered.— What material circumstance was in existence that brought this registry or the omission of this regis- try to your recollection? I was sent to Berkeley to make out or trace the registries of all the family of Lord Berkeley, to be found in the parish registry books of Berkeley.— What is the House to understand you to mean by making out or tracing, was it to sup- ply omissions, such as this which you did supply, or what else is to be understood by the term " to make out?'' To make out copies for the purpose of laying before this House in the pedigree business. They were all found in the books except two, one of the late Countess of Berkeley, which Mr. Lewis supplied from some other evidence from some information he got; this being thus, was supplied from my own knowledge, as I was personally acquainted with the fact.— Did you know when you made that entrv that the baptism had been registered in St. Martin's- church? I did not.— Was it the ceremony of the fune- ral ofthe Countess of Berkeley that was omitted? Yes; of the funeral ; there were two omissions, one of them did not come within my personal knowledge, the other did.— State which was the one which caipe within your knowledge? This of Thomas Moreton Fitzhardinge.— By whom was the otlu r suggested ? By Mr. Lewis ; somebody informed Mr. Lewis; I do not know who.— The witness was directed to with draw. Then Sir Samuel Romilly was heard to sum tip the evidence adduced on behalf of the Claimant.- Tim Counsel weredirected to withdraw.— Projtosed to ad- journ the Committee till to- morrow at two of the clock.— Accordingly, adjourned till to- morrow at two o'clock.
