CONSUMPTION OF TFLK LUNGS.— ASTHMA. Copy of a Letter from J. Montague Leigh, Esq. SIR, MY (. laughter's case of Consumption beitrg de- clared by hfr Physician* hopeless, I applied to a popular advertised Balsam, which failing to afford the least benefit, I was inclined togWethe Oxyrii^ i of Stramonium, as tvcun mended b\ Surgeon Fisher, a tria*; and I have plea- sure in saying that she derived immediate rehef frvm it. In the short period of three davs herewith abated, the ex- pectoration diminished, the hectic [ evet marly disappeared, and, by persevering in the use of this valuable remedy, the symptoms gradually left her, and her strength increased. So lapid was her progress to recovery, that in three'weeks she was entirely free from any consumptive symptom, and at this time is perfectly well, to the astonishment of our Medical Friends, and all that had witnessed her emaciated state. I am, Sir. your very grateful aud obedient servant, Bernerd- sheet, F< b. J6, 1911. J. M. LEIGH.

The following extract has been this day received from Lord Wellington dated Qninta de Joao, the 18th of July :— The army of Portugal broke up from their position on the Guadiana on the 14th inst. and have moved towards Trux- illo. I huve not yet heard that any troops had passed that town towards A1 mares; or that tbe cavalry, which bad been about Talavera and Lobon, had retired further than Merida. They arc fortifying the old castle of Medelin, as well as that at Truxillo. Gen. Blake embarked his corps in the Mouth of the Guadinna on the 6th. As soon as Gen. Blake's corps embarked, the body of tbe enemy's troops, which had marched towards the Gnadiana, and had turned towards Carta.) a, retired from the frontier toward* St. Lucar. I understand that the troops belonging to the 4th corps, which Marshal Sonlt had brought into Estremadura, have marched towards Granada. There is nothing new on the side of Valladolid, excepting that Joseph Bonapr. rte had returned to Spain, and, it is said, arrived at Burgos, with an escort of about 3000 men, on the 5tb inst. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 7. Lord Wcllinston's dispatch of the ISth ult. was brought by the Armide frigate, Cap!. Dunn, which left the Tagus on tho 23d. Co!. Campbell, Hon. Col. Ramsay, Col Taylor, Capt. Harris, Mr. Sydenham, Dr. Halliday, & c. came passengers in the Armide. When they left the army, the sick and wounded were rapidly recovering. Mr. Sydenham, we understand, went out upon a special mis'siou to Lord Wellington. He has brought home with him an Eagle which was found in the river Alva. Marshal Beresford had gone to Ciutra, for the benefit of his health, which suffered much during the late operations on the Guadiana. The amount of the sick and wounded is stated, in one of the letters al 10,000. We have seen another which says, that by the last returns there were 5,000 British, and 2,500 Portuguese, in the hospitals. The enemy are stated, in the same communication, to have had 12,000 sick previous to their retiring from the environs of Badajos. The general opinion at the Rritish head- quarters was, that active operations would nol be re- sumed on either side until November. The Peninsula.— It may appear strange upon a first view, that there should be a general suspension of military operations in Spain, at the very season when they are usually carried on with the greatest artiyitvi— but this stale of affairs is as consolatory as it is singular ; the successes of the French armies, for the last 20 years, have depended so entirely upon striking great and decisive blows, and improving the impressions thus made by rapid and unceasing advance; and it is evident- ly JO much the interest of oar enczairato accomplish the LONDON. FRIDAY, AUGUST 9. • T t d Wellington lias been created by tiie F.' ritie Regent » f Portugal, Conde de Vimiera; General Beresford, Cootie ele Franeosp; General Silviera, Conde de Ahnirante; and Colonel Tj- fiuf 1ms been invested with thfc'Order of the Grand Cross and Sw- ord. The Sylvia cutter arrived cn Wednesday at ' Portsmouth, in five months, from Madras, with liisjiatcl'. cs for Govern- ment and the ' East India. Company. At the time of her departure the expedition against Java was on the point of Sailing. We are sorry to state, that Admiral Drury died oil the 51 h of March, just as he had completed, all the prepar- ations for the intended expedition. Cap. tain- Broirgli. ton, of the Illustrious, was expected at Madras, to take the com- mand. II was expected that the Madras and Bengal ships would, sail direct from the former place about the lattcrend of March, under convoy of tiie Di » iuede frigate, of 50 guns. Some of the Bengal ships bad already'. ass^ robled atMadras, where they were completing their cargoes; ar. d others were daily expected frpin different . ports of, the coast. The letter's* from Bombay, we regret to . state, announce the failure of t wo of the principal native houses at that place. An order has been issued from ihe Horse Guards, direct- ing the immediate embarkation for Ireland of the under- mentioned regiments of Militia, at the following ports:— At Dover.— West Middlesex, Cornish Miners, Moat-, gouiery, Caei- naivon, Merioneth, and Cardigan. ' At H. arirleh.-— Northumberland At Portsmouth.— Surrey, Leicester, and Anglesea. . At Bristol —- Westmorland aud Radnor. At Plymouth.— Cornwall and Nottingham. The vessels employed ou this service are to return to England With regiments of Irish Militia. The Duke of York dined at his office, on Tuesday. His Royal Highness Only retains seven servants, four males aud three females. We have the pleasure to announce the safe arrival ofthe East ludia fleet iu tiie Downs, itndei-. cotivoy of his Majesty's ships Beiliqueux and Meiielaus. The foliowitig is a copy of. General Blake's reply lo Lord Wellington,. in answer to a letter, communicating to him tne vote of thanks passed in both Houses of tho British Parliament:— . " Expr.^ I. EKT SIR,— The unanimous thanks of the Houses of Peers, and Commons of Great Britain and Ire- laud, voted on the .7th of June last, which express their opinion with respect to the conduct of the Spanish army I had the honour to command, in the battle fought oil the fields, of Albuera, on the lStli of May, inclosed to me in your Excellency's letter of the 20th of June, fulfil the wishes of all military men, and are calculated to convince our common enemies ofthe mutual esteem and strict union which will always subsist, between the armies of the three allied nations— At the, same time, tbe high honour dis- pensed in so illustrious an assembly to the Spanish troops, will be received by them with gratitude and enthusiasm, equal to the heroism displayed on that day, to merit the sincere and noble approbation of the good —- Your Excel- lence knows the great value in which these honorary documents arc held bv military men, aud 1 will therefore confine myself lo entreating you to make known to both Houses our gratitude, and to renew, in the name of the Spanish Nation, their wish for the continuance ofan Union which lias been productive of so ranch glory, aud introduces an epoch which will be memorable for ages to come.— Allow me to express to your Excellency that it augments our satisfaction to receive tiie thanks of both Mouses through the instrumentality of him who holds so distinguished a place in military a. inals, and particulary in those of the Peninsula. " God preserve your Excellency many years. Ayamonte. My ti." " J. B(, AKK." Affairs appear to be coming to a crisis iu Ireland. The Catholics of the County of Clare have held a Meeting, at which it was resolved to proceed on the Resolutions of' the Aggregate Committee in Dublin, regardless of the Proclamation enforcing the Conven- tion Act. Mr. O'Brien, of Castle Fergus, and several other Protestant Gentlemen of rank and fortune, at- tended the Meeting, and approved of the conduct of their Catholic brethren. No Magistrate appeared cn this occasion, to act under the Proclamation lately issued.— The County pf Kilkenny met for the same purpose on the 5th, and a Requisition for a similar Meeting iu the Queen's County, of which Mr. W. Pole is a Representative, has been signed by a number of its most respectable inhabitants. George Lidwill, Esq. a respectable Protestant Magistrate, has written a letter to Lord Manners, the Chancellor, slaing that tho Con- vention Act does not apply to the Catholic, proceedings •— that he considers them perfectly legal— that in this opinion he is supported by that of some eminent law- yer,— and that so far from obstructing, he will, on the contrary, protect these proceedings. The Dublin Evening Post ot' the 6th instant states, that several letters, of a similar description, have been addressed to the Lord Chancellor by other Protestant Magistrates. The following is au extract from Mr. Lid will's letters— " Did my sense of duty as a Magistrate only go to a passive . disobedience of the Proclamation, I should not liuve troubled your lordship wii. ll this communication; but I feci myself bound both by my oath of office, and those obligations imposed on me as a good citizen, to extend my efforts to the protection of the injured— and therefore, while I hold the Commission of the Peace,. 1 will receive tbe informafions of any person who shall complain on oath of receiving auy " violation from any Magistrate or Peace Officer acting under this Proclamation, while such person has been concerned only In forwarding his Petition to Parliament. This determination, formed on the best view I could lake of tl- e subject, I mu3t make public iu those counties of which 1 am a Magistrate [ the counties of Tipperary, Kilkenny, and the Queen's Couuty], having fir< t apprized your lordship of ihe fame." New South H'ales.— Yesterday 4.3 male convicts were sen! fro n the Hulks at Woolwich1, on board tbe ship Guildford; 5,1 more are to be embarked iu her from Sheeruess, and 100 from the Hulks at. Portsmouth : she then proceeds to New South Wales. Supplies of agricultural nnd other useful implements and materials are no w in readiness to be sent out in three vessels, expressly taken up for that purpose, and which cannot fail materially to promote the growing interests of that colony. That part of the land gained from the sea hy the Right Hon. Lord Boringdnu, in Devonshire, has ibis year, the-' third of its enclosure, been sown with wheal, and reaping began last Friday.

Very important intelligence has beeu brought to Bristol by the Nitniod, which " ship left Malta, 011 the 12lti.' ult. The day before she sailed, a vessel entered that port, ivliicli had made a very short voyage . from Patras, and, by this conveyance intelligence was brought that Preliminaries of Peace had been signed by the Russian and Turkish Pleni- potentiaries, who hail sent off couriers to Iheir respective Courts, for the ratification of the arrangements. A series of posts is established between Constantinople and this port ofthe Morea, by which dispatches are transmitted from the capital in the short interval of four days.— This intelli- gence renews our hopes for Europe, and Confirms our expectation of an early re- admission of the manufactures of this country to the Continent. The Emperor of Russia has long been aware of the vast advantage to be derived from opening his ports to the commerce of England, in a period when the restrictions of Bonaparte exclude it from every other part ofthe North. The conclusion of the war with Turkey having rendered the whole of the Russian armies disposable for the defence of his frontiers against France, his policy will 110 longer be suppressed by the fear of Bonaparte ; and his revolt from the Continental System will at least induce the latter to maintain a large army in the North, at the risk of losing every thing iu Spain and Portugal. Slow as the Spaniards are, they will thus have time to become disciplined like tbe Portuguese, and must surely be capable of defending themselves against un enemy, Weakened and harassed hy a greater power at the distance ofa 1000 miles from tlicir frontier. Yesterday arrived New Yoik Papers to Ihe 15th of July. They contain au account of the arrival of Mr. Foster and Mr. i'iukuey. The former had beeu introduced to the President, nud bad commenced his diplomatic duties. There are various reports in the American papers respect- ing the nature of bis mission, and many speculations 011 its probable issue. The prevailing opinion, however, appears to be, that the differences between the United States and this country will be amicably adjusted. Sir S. Hood has beep appointed Commander, in Chief in the East Indies, ill the room of Vice- Adm. Drury, deceased. Rear- Adia, Stopford has in the mean time, sailed from the Cape of Good Hope, for the Mauritius, in the Scipion. Another mail from Aiibolt was this afternoon received at the Foreign Post- office, which brings dates from Sweden to the 2d inst. The intelligence from Turkey is of a very pacific nature. From Vienna, under date Julys, it is staled, " that the affairs between Russia and the Porte began to look very pacific. Three Russian Plenipotentiaries bad set out for Rudshack, between whom and an officer of dis- tinction from Schumla, au arrangement, preliminary to a definitive treaty of peace, was to be proposed. Thus far the report of yesterday, of peace having been signed July It, is borue out.. . The Malta mail, which arrived this morning, brought by the Manchester packet, furyishes us With nothing from thence later than July 2 2.— Letters from Smyrna, of June 7 contain a melancholy account of a dreadful fire which had taken place ill that city : upwards of 3000 houses were destroyed, together with an immense quantity of goods. The Janissaries are suspected of having been the instru ments of the conflagration. The latest dates from Gibraltar are of the 24th ult. Ac- cording to the most recent accounts from Cadiz a vessel called the Micon, had arrived from South America, having on board a seasonable supply of seven millions uf dolltirs for the use of the Government. Admiral Sir Charles Cotton lias arrived tit Portsmouth iu the San Josef man of war, from the Mediterranean. The most recent letters from America state, that Mr. Robert Smith bad asserted, that he was in possession of a copy of tbe official instructions transmitted to Commodore Rogers, previous to his affair with the Little Belt. Intelligence from Gibraltar fully confirms the account of the surrender of. Tarragona; and states, that 14,000 men, English aud Spaniards, in Catalouia, had landed the day after that event. The Favorite, Capt. Clements, is returned from a cruise off the coast of France; she fell in with a French convoy, which she drove on shore.

The Utility of a Work of this Kind must be so obvious to every one, that 110 Apology, we hope, is required for bring- ing il before tbe Public. A compendious System of the Laws, written in an easy and familiar Style, must be useful to thousands. Indeed, there is 110 Individual whatever that may not, at some Time of his Life, require the Assistance of such a Book. Though it be not necessary for every Man to be a Lawyer, it is surely incumbent upon every one that he should pos- sess some Knowledge of the Laws under which lie lives ; yet bow few have tbe least Claim to this desirable and useful Brunch of Learning. This might have been formerly im- puted to the want of proper Treatises 011 the Laws and Constitution ; but since the Appearance of Blacksfone's Commentaries, no such Excuse can'remain. Tlie great Price, however, of lhat Work considerably diminishes its general diffusion. By making this, therefore, attainable by all, aud by giving the most material Parts of Blackstone, we hope it will meet tbe Encouragement cf a liberal and discerning Public. Loncon : printed for A.

SIR,— I am now going to send you a few extracts from a very entertaining little book, which, on account of its compeudioiisnessv And facility of reference for many useful purposes of History and literature, ought to be in possession of every family, who have sufficient knowledge of and laste for letters, to read even no more than a weekly newspaper ; because I am certain that it would often assist them greatly to understand para- graphs, which, without some such aid, they might not clearly comprehend The book I mean is " The Tablet of Memory, by Philip Luckombe," whose obvious utility has occa- sioned many editions j ; but I am sorry to say that the compiler has not beeu sufficiently attentive in the later editions to correct several errors which existed in tbe former. Still, with all its imperfections, it con- tains much valuable information in a small compass, and its price is reasonable. By some means, au idea is prevalent that our countryman PARK, who attained the age of 152 years, was the oldest man on record in England, except the Yorkshire Fisherman Henry Jenkins, who reached to 169 years among the children of mortality. —- On casually looking over the list of remarkable persons at the end of this volume, two names occurred wbose ages exceeded Parr's ) one by two years, reach- ing to 154, the other lived sixteen years longer, and was within one year as old as Jenkins. This induced me to select from that list al! the names 1 could find therein whose ages exceeded a century. Having done so, 1 thought it might fill part of a column in your Journal with much satisfaction to most of its readers t nor can 1 perceive probable cause for even one to be displeased with it; though to several doubtless it will convey no new information,— Even fastidiousness itself will probably abstain from a niurmur on this occasion; and will admit that time employed in the perusal of these extracts may be spent with less advantage. You, Sir, I hope, will think as I do, that the' extracts will be favourably received ; and therefore, as soon as you conveniently can give them insertion, will let them appear. 1 shall take the alphabetical order of the list, and then add a few comments.

Aug. 1776 Many names might have been selected from 80 to 100, bnt my object was those who had exceeded the century; and, on a revision of the pages, I find that a few might have been introduced in the foregoing list. I shall here briefly name them St. Anthony the fSreat 105 Democritns ( before Christ) ing Drakenburgh, a Dane, d. 1770 146 The Patriarchs, Abraham, & c. were passed over because they are recorded in the bible. The above extracts were begun merely to shew that EDWARDS and DAMM were older than Parr: and I now proceed to add a few REMARKS. Of these 30 persons only 5 are females, 1 of whom it a Scotchwoman,— and there are 4 Scotchmen.— Ireland furnishes 4 instances of this greatly extended duration of existence; Wales gives two ; aud the other 19 are of England, and of these the County of Salop affords no less than 4. In perusing tbe ingenious and pleasant works of Dr. Adair, printed at Bath, in 1787, we may find this remark, p. 820,1ol. 1,—" From Bills of Mortality, it appears that not more than 2 or 3 in 1000 peisons " attain the 100th year j aud only one in 5000 exceeds « « tbat age." To those medical gentlemen who have not read Dr. Adair's volumes, I would respectfully suggest the pe- rusal, more especially would 1 urge it to the young practitioners of the healing ail) wherein they will find much valuable matter aud sound reasoning, well worthy of their remembrance. I do not know, Sir, that there is any biographical work expressly on longevity ; but it may be both instructive and entertaining to have a volume of biographical history respecting these and other per- sons memorable for their long lives, displaying their stature, colour, voice, habits, diet, clothing, fyc. I know that Lewi* Comoro wrote a small volume, and also Dr. Cheyne wrote on Health and long Life; but their works do not take the view of the subject that I mean. They rather investigate principles than reason upon facts, such as the biography of long livers would afford.— Of the So instances before staled, 21 occurred in the last. century, and surely materials may he found, by enquiry in tbe different districts, to afford valuable information, if men of science in the vicinities of those places would make the requisite search. I will not trespass more on your time at present. Possibly 1 may resume the subject some future day. Wishing jou, Sir, health and long life; and to as many of your readers as feel desirous for, and disposed to k use means to attain, those blessings, I subscribe respectfully, A MEDICAL STUDENT. fjwdlow, July, 1811. Youthful Courege.— On Wednesday evening last, three little boys, from eight to ten years old, had got on a log of timber in. tbe basin, Grangemouth, Scotland, when it canted round, and they were ail three p e- cipitated into the water; the two oldest found means of getting on a rart which lay near them, and immedi- ately gave the alarm of their young companion being in the basin. David Crawford Swinton, a boy of twelve years of age, being atsome distance, no sooner heard the cry than he darted to Ihe spot, over rafts and spars which lay in his way, and, having thrown off his jacket as he ran along, dashed into Ihe basin, and saved the little boy when he was going down, appar- ently for the last'time, having been down and up several times before he ccnld be got at, A Cormorant, a short time since, posted it self on the utmost point of Ihe spire at Sarum, and remained stationary during the whole afternoon, and il is supposed part of the night, notwithstanding the shouts of a vast number of the inhabitants of the city, who assembled in the Close to witness the singularity of the sight. Some venerable sages, of both sexes, immediately ctms rued it into au ill omen; others said the spire w ould fall I On Sunday the town of Shepton- Mallet, was alarmed by two fires: the firstaboutsix o'clock in lliemorning, at the workshops of Mr. Chippett, carpenter, which was extinguished in about aa hour and a half. The lecotul was more tremendous, and broke out at ll o' clock the same night in Mr. Gane's cloth factory, in Kelver- street; it was occasioned by some wool beini spread abroad for the purpose of new carding, which took fire owing 10 its being mixed wilh train- oil.— The conflagration was discovered early, and by timely assis- tance the fury of the flames was smothered, and the whole put out without any considerable damage being sustained. Ill the days of oar fifth Harry, when the fate of nations was decided hy Archers, had Bonaparte and his Marshals ex- isted, I hey would have been most formidable champions, as certainly there never was a set of men so expert at drawing the long hoa!~ On comparing the accounts transmitted by Bonaparte's Generals in the Peninsula, with the number of English troops landed at Portugal, the enemy has killed tome hundreds more of our countrymen thau ever landed in that country ! k A law- suit of a curious nature, though not unprecedented in literary annals, is now pending iti Paris: it is an action for damages brought by M. Bouvet, of the Imperial Academy, against the conductors of the Journal de I'Empire, for having in a critique on a Latin poena, written by him on the birth of the King of Rome, declared that his metre was false, his lines full of barbarism, and that on the whole he was an indifferent poet. M. Bouvet, who is a schoolmaster, declares that his reputation as a man of letters is affected, and lays his damages at a considerable sum. Three hundred and sixty- eight foreigtiers, persons who are said to live by their wits, have lately been banished from the hereditary States of Austria. In the list of names, coal- heavers are found by the side of titular Princes and Counts, and strolling players hy Marquisses and Barons, existing upon the chance of the die. Lists of this kind are to be re- peated every six months, and sent to all the Magistrates of Justice and police. The inhabitants of Berlin row make use of the seeds of lupins roasted, to supply the place of coffee. Sunday Schools.— On Tuesday, a cause which excited considerable interest, came on to be heard at the Sessions House, Portsmouth, before Joseph Smith, Esq Mayor, and other Magistrates. It was an information preferred nomi- nally by Henry Norris, but actually by the Rev. Dr. Scott, Chaplain of Portsuion'li Dock yard Church, against John Maybee, and the Hon. George Grey, Commissioner of the said Dock- yard.— The information set forth, that John May- bee, was at an unlawful assembly, held in a certain room or office, belonging or attached to the dwelling house of the Hon. Commissioner Grey, under colour or pretence of exercising religious worship, otherwise than according to the Liturgy of the Church of England : at which Meeting five persons or more were assembled, besides those of the household, con- trary to 22 Car. II. " An Act to prevent and suppress « e- ditious Conventicles and had thereby incurred the penalty of 20?. each.— John Maybee, defendant, pleaded not guilty. — It appeared in evidence, that this was a Sunday School, where poor children are taught to read the Bible, Testament, the Explanation of the Catechism, and the Common Prayer- Book of the Church of England.— After a full hearing, the defendant was acquitted; and the prosecutor withdrew the information against the Hon. George Grey, for having, as charged, wittingly and willingly suffered an unlawful assembly to be held at his office. Lord Sheffield's Report.— At the Annual Meeting of the Wool- growers and Wool- staplers, lately held at Lewes, Lord Sheffield addressed them at great length upon the general commercial and financial situation of the country, as well as upon tbe immediate object of the Meeting. From the details which he entered into, he drew the following conclusions:—• " That the demand fur woollens for the home market has not diminished, but probably much increased, and that Ihe export of them is much increased also. " That, comparatively with the whole amount of the manu- facture, the demand for foreign countries with which we are now at war, was not considerable. " That it is not the decay of the manufacture, or the want oT demand for it, but difficulties respecting money, and the great stock of wool on band, that occasion tbe deb? sement in price. " That speculations ou foreign wool*, and the extravagant variations of price, have deranged the trade a nd manufacture of that article; but those wools being now reduced to their former price, and the manufacture of them being principally for the home market, there is little doubt of its being restored to its former state. " That the staplers of English fine wools are greatly dis- tressed by the distrust arising from erroneout notions, and by the difficulties of obtaining discounts. " That the sale of fine English wools Is greatly prejudiced by our immense importation of Spanish wool, and by the distressed state of the staplers. " That the scarcity of gold is not to be attributed merely to the war. to the particular conduct of the enemy, nor to the hostile and unfriendly conduct of the American States, but in a great degree to bad policy in our interior management. " That through the want of a due encouragement, of agri- culture and the cultivation of waste lands, this country has paid, during the last 15 years, considerably more than 10,000,000/. sterling yearly, for grain and wool, which might have been raised 111 the- United Kingdom. " That the great import of grain in 179G, occasioned a drain of gold, much more than foreign subsidy, arid in a great degree brought on the Bank restriction in 1797, and that the value of grain imported in the years 1800 and 1801, amounted to 19,0011,000/. sterling. " That large quantities of gold coin arc not necessary to commerce, as appears from the example, particularly, of Holland and Scotland; which countries had a very small quantity of coin in their most flourishing state. " l hat Ihe restoration of confidence in more wanted than any'utlier circumstance to promote the woollen manufacture," Agriculture.— A writer in the Westmoreland Ad- vertiser says—" Owing to the long succession of dry weather, in the spring and early part of the summer of last vear, we had very light crops of hay throughout the North of England. The following instances may be adduced as a proot of the difference of the seasons between this and the last year, a: they shew the produce of the same ground without any ad ditional culture. Two fields on the estate of l. aurence honse, in the township of Levens, produced the following quantities in each year: — Little Coppice, containing about lour acres, yielded iu 1810, only four carls of hay, and 1811, 23 caits. Hollin Close, about six acres, had ' in 1810 six carts of hay; in 1811, 27 carts. Heaves, afield in the tamo neighbour- hood, about Sj acres, was sown with turnips in 1809, for which Mr. Dudgeon obtained a prize from the Kendal Agricultural Society; in 1810, be bad a good crop of wheat 011 it; and this year it produced 47 carts of hay. It is necessary to state that all the three fields were sown with a mixture of rye- grass aud clover- seeds." Funeral of the Dulce of Devonshire.— OnTuesday I Two gentlemen, of the names of Dufour and Craig, morning, soon afler five o'clock, the undertakers, and started on Thursday, for a wager of 50 guineas, to ruu the attendants, assembled in Ihe court- yard of Burling- ton- house, in Piccadilly, wherein they made the ne- cessary arrangements for the funeral procession. At six o'clock the whole proceeded in at the western gate of Devonshire- house, and at the bottom of the great flight of stone steps the hearse waited for a short time to receive the remains of this much- lamented nobleman. About half- past six, the body was brought out of the great saloon, carried by six men. The cavalcade then moved in tolemn procession through the eastern gate in the order as follow :— Undertaker ( on horseback). Two horsemen as porters ( in silk dresses). Cioakmen 011 black horses, two aud two. Two horsemen as porters. State horse dressed in mourning, with an attendant in silk scarf bearing the coronet and cushion, the horse led by two grooms.

Dudley North, Esq.— chariot and pair, and servants. James, Esq.—. chariot and pair, aud servants. The route was by the great northern road, for the family vault al Derby. At Kentish Town the Prince Regent's carriage quitted the procession; which pro- ceeded to Highgate, where according lo custom, the hearse was undressed. The cavalcade then went on until it arrived at Woburn, where a halt took place for the night. The funeral rites were to be performed on Thursday the Slh, by torch- light, at All Saints Church Derby The coffin was very beautiful; it was, if possible more richly decorated than the late Duchess of Devon- shire's.— It was covered with Genoa crimson velvet fully ornamented with ducal coronets, stars, and ex- quisitely chased handles. The stars were of silver, and the coronets and nails were silver gilt. On a plate of copper gilt was engraved the following inscription, viz. The most Nob'e WILLIAM CAVENDISH, Fifth Duke of Devonshire, Born December 24lh, 1748, Died July 29th, 1811. A very affecting scene was beheld at the instant of the removal of the corpse. The Duchess fainted away. Thedaughters ofthe deceased, viz. Viscountess Morpeth, and Lady Leveson Gower, went into strong hysterics. The present Duke, who had borne previously the severe trial with great firmness, became quite unmanned ; he was not without difficulty prevailed upon to quit Ihe coffin, and allow it to be placed in the hearse. Daring Robbery.— A reward of one hundred pounds having been offered for the discevery of a theft com- mitted on board the Archduke Charles, recently arrived in the river from Lima, with a quantity of silver, bullion, and indigo, a publican, who had been accus- tomed to serve beer in the Loudon Docks, came forward on Saturday last, and offeted to discover his accomplice* in the robbery in question, provided he should be admitted King's evidence, and be entitled to the reward. Some doubts being suggested as to his knowledge of the fact, he proposed lo take the gentle- man, broker to the ship, to the several places where thc stolen silver was secreted : he accordingly took him from the middle of Holborn lo Bow, and return, Each betled that he performed the distance within an hour, being eight miles and an half. Mr Dufour won by three minutes, he having performed Ihe distance in 57 minutes. York Assizes.— These assizes commenced on Wed- nesday, before Mr. Baron Wood, and Mr. Justice Chambre. After the usual Proclamation had been read, Mr. Baron Wood addressed the Jury in the fol- lowing terms:—• " Gentlemen qf the Grand Jury, '' The calendar, considering the popuhimnessof this county does not present ahy large number of aggravated cases ; nor does it appear to me to contain any which wjll render it at all necessary to occupy your time with any observations upon them. Bnt there are two cases not in the calendar, ahich 1 feel it my duty to recommend to jour serious consideration The first 1 have only recently beeome acquainted with, by reading an article in the Doncsster paper, which purports to be an account of the proceedings at Beverley sessions, and which I will read to you ; his lordship heie read from a news paper the paragraph. [ This was a statement of the trial at the above sessions, of RobertWright, nnd his wife, of Lock ington, for various instances of unnatural treatment aud bar- arity towards Elisabeth Wright, a child of about nine years of age, the daughter of the said Wright, by a former ular riage. Stephen Camp deposed, that the house he lived in is very slightly divided from Wright's, and that he had heard the child beat by the mother- in- law, four or five times in a day, severely, and once heard the blows indicted 38 yards from the place. Elisabeth Robson, a neighbour, deposed to the same effect, particularly on the Thursday previous to the death of the child. Elizabeth Roper deposed to hearing the child beat most unmercifully up stairs, for having asked its father for a bit of cake ; and heard the mother- in law threaten to knock her on the head, if she ever repeated it. The girl, when brought home to the father's house a few weeks before, was a very healthy child, but was a most pitiable object before her death; she was kept up stairs, and for five weeks was not seen by the neighbours; tile above witness was herself threatened by the mother, for ber interference. Mr. Robert Robinson, attended the Cornuer's inquest, and deposed, that the body was bruised grossly in all parts of it: had two laige wounds beneath the soles of the feet, a cut 111 the knee, and marks of cruel treatment to the most shocking degree.— Mr. Uennison, the Chairman, having summed up the statement to the Jury, they brought in a verdict of guilty against Ann Wright, tire mother- in- law, and she was sen tenced to a year's imprisonment, tbe last fortnight of which in a solitary cell.} " Gentlemen, if tic statement contained in what 1 have just read to you be true, this was a case of murder, and the prisoner ought to have been indicted here for it'; for though the law allows parents and masters to inflict moderate cor- rection 011 their children and servants, it does not counte- nance cruelty and oppression ; and I have brought the cisa before you, that you may inquire into the circumstances of • - nil if you shall find them ns there stated, it will be your Sir Francis Burdett and the Speaker.— Our readers will recollect that this cause, which was tried recently at Bar, iu tbe Couit of King's Bench, was decided by a Jury in favour of the defendant, and that in the action against the Serjeant at Arms, the Court gave their judgment in demurrer against the plaintiff.— Sir Francis riot satisfied with the result in either cause, lias now brought his writ of appeal, and With actions w ill he again agitated before the Court of Exchequer Chamber, which has paramount jurisdiction above the Courts of Westminster Hall This Court is composed, of the 12 Judges, all of whom sit together and hear the advocates 011 both sides, and afterwmds pronounce tlieir judgment seriatim; from whose decision there is no other appeal but to the House of Lords. The Jlfotk Clergyman.— The deceptions this man has carried on have been to a much greater extent than those of any swindler for a number of yeais past. He imposed upon Mr. Gurney, the Rector of St. Clement's, Strand, and Mr. Shepherd, his assistant, and got acquainted with their connections, frequently having dined with them, and he has often done the duly at that church. One day Mr. Shep- heid was engaged to bury a corpse, and about the same time he was engaged out to dinner, when Tucker being there, he offered his services to bury . the corpse, which Mr. Shepherd accepted, ami he pti formed the burial ceremony. Dr. Hawker was emtagrd lo preach a charity setmoii at that ebuich lately. Tucker made his appearance in the vestry ai. an early hour, previous to tbe time appointed for the church service beginning, and allhotigh Mr. Shepherd had promised to read the prayers for the Doctor, this fellow got possession of the surplice, against the consent of th* Clerk and Sexton, and vent into the desk. Mr. Shepherd coming into Ihe church in good time, was surprised and displeased to dis- cover him in the desk ; the Clerk and Sexton offered to put him out, but Mr. Shepherd declined that. however, it was fiom this c- iictimstaiice, and bin ivaiilitig to borrow Mr. Shepherd's Master of Aits' gown, for the purpose, as he said, of going tothe Installation of the Duke of Gloucester, at Cambridge, ( Mr. Shepherd was reluctant as to lending it, and recollecting that the time he asked for it was above a week before the Installation was to take place,) was the cause of his being ouspected, and louud out to lhat connection. to the coal hole of the ship, where was concealed a bag of silver weighing 47lb„ Under a watch box in the Docks, and amongst some flax, he pointed out further quantities, all of which were to be conveyed out of the Docks the first convenient opportunity. Besides these, a quantity was traced to Usher- street, Water lane, Fleet- street, which had been conveyed from the docks in the insideof porter knots, without the least suspicion. The publican having discovered the property to the parties concerned, next directed the Thames Police Officers to the thieves, who turned out to be two labourers in the London Docks, and a watchman, besides himself. They were all taken before Mr. Harriott at the Thames Police office, 011 Saturday night last, at a late hour, when the above facts transpired. It was objected to by the broker that the publican should be admitted King's evidence, as it appeared that he was the instigator of the robbery; it was agreed that thc prisoners, includ- ing thc vender of beer, should be committed until Wed- nesday next, when they are to undergo a fresh examiiia tion, and the question of King's evidence is to be de- cided. The Report of the Committee of the House of Commons ou the petition of the Brewers of Dublin Cork, aud Walerford, contains the following Resolu- tions:— " Resolved— That it is the opinion of this Committee, lhat in the different parts of Ireland the excessive use of spirituous liquors has, of late, much increased. " Resolved—' That it is the opinion of this Committee, that the cause of the said excess is the cheapness of the article. " Resolved— That it is the opinion of this Committee, that the clandestine distillation of spirituous liquors does at present much prevail, lo the great prejudice of the community and the revenue." The rage among the Ladies of Ten to appear plump aud large, is carried to an extent scarcely to be credited. The Widow of a Doctor, whose eccentric practice, about 20 years ago, obtained him many patients, is now much employed iu giving Ladies the true corpu- lent and fashionable appearances. Among other pre- scriptions, they are ordered " not to take any exercise, and to eat beef steaks three limes a night, and to drink a pint of porter at each meal." A Society in the city of Bristol are now issuing silver tokens, of the value of twelve pence each, to remedy the inconveni- ence arising from the scarcity of change. They are of equal fineness with Bank of England 5s. 6d. and 3s. tokens, and arc neatly struck-, with the " Bristol Arms" on one side, and on the Other, " For necessary CfMitge. Bristol Silver Token, 12 ( pence) 1811." Leases.— A gentleman of the name of Courtenay, who has a large estate ill the county of Limerick, lias lately let out the same in a manner worthy the applause and imitation of every land owner in Ireland. He has teased the lands in small convenient farms to the actual occupier for 31 years and a life; and has allowed to make deductions at tbe rate of 2Q or 30 per cent, on the rent of the first ten years, provided they will shew to a certain value, laid out in labour or otherwise. The good effects of this system are already beginning to ap- pear. Several of the poor tenantry ( made industrious by these advantages) are building small kilns in the mountains, and drawing limestone from the . quarries in the low lands. They are also raising manures and draiuing the lands. Mo system could tendmore to give the peasantry a taste for industry and peaceable habits. One of the Danish literati has lately published a treatise at Copenhagen, recommending a more general consumption of horse- flesh, which in his opinion, tho' less nutritious than other kinds of animal food, is more wholesome, aud less likely lo engender diseases in the organie system, doty to return a bill uf wilful murder against the offending party. For no trial and conviction at a quarter sessions for an inferior offence can abate, or do away a charge of murder. Indeed, if this was the case, the most enormous crimes might escape » u adequate punishment. The law does not give to a prosecutor the option whether a party shall be prosecuted for an assault, or for murder, and of sheltering a criminal from the latter by only indicting him for the former If on due inquiry and investigation into the circumstances of this case, it shall appear to you thai the death of this child was occasioned by cruel and general ill treatment of its parents, or either of them, you must make such presentment to the Court. If the evidence shnuld not satisfy you that this was the case, the matter must rest where it is, and the party must suffer the punishment adjudged by the quarter sessions. ' The other circumstance to which 1 wish te call your attention is the case of a chimney- sweep at Wakefield, where death was occasioned by his being severely burnt, in conse- quence of a fiie having been made in a chimney communi- cating with that he was employed to sweep; and the reason I mention this case for your consideration, is, because the Coroner's Jury w ho investigated it, have not drawn any in- ference or conclusion from the facts laid before them. They have not stated whether the fire was made maliciously, with intent to injure or destroy the child, which would be murder; or negligently, without paying due attention to the safety of the boy, wnicb would be manslaughter ; or hy mere ac eident, which last I hope will prove 10be the case; and if the Coroner's Jury had stated this to be their opinion, I should not have trouble d you with the mention of this case." His Lordship read the verdict of the Coroner's Jury. His Lordship said he made these observations, not with a view of prejudicing their minds against any offender or supposed offender, but merely for the purpose of drawing the attention of the Grand Jury to circum- stances which seemed to require investigation, and he was confident they would do all that Ihe nature of the respective cases demanded. The Grand Jury have found a true bill for wilful mur- der against the wife of Robert Wright, of Lockir. gton, who was Iried and sentenced to one jear's imprison- ment at Beverley Sessions, for unnatural treatment aud barbarity to Elisabeth Wright, her daughter- in- law. At these Assizes, T. Ripley was indicted for secret- ing and embezzling a letter, containing a 11. Bank of England note, the property of John Hindle. — The Judge, in summing up, observed, that a clerk in a post- office embezzling a letter was a capital offence; but Government, out of humanity, had abandoned tbe capital part, and only proceeded for larceny. The Jury found him— Guilty. Fox Hunting.— At the Hertford Assizes, an action of trespass was tried ( JOHNSON V OLD\ C< E) for breaking and entering llie plaintiff's ground. Tne defendant, who was huntsman, of the Berkeley Hunt, pleaded, as a justification, that he was the servant of Wood, Esq. who was a quali- fied man : that they had started a fox in hunting, which ran over the ground of the plaintiff, ami that they followed it, as the means of killing a noxious animal. The replication stated, that the defendant pursued the fox for the spoil of hunting, and not f, ir the purpose of destroying the fox, as a noxious animal.— Robert Williams, Esq. of Moore Park, and'three other witnesses, proved the trespass, by the defendant riding over the plaintiff's grounds on the 26th of Januaiy last, in pursuit of a fox-, which was soon kennelled at about three miles distant, but no previous notice from the plaintiff had been given. Mr, Serjeant Best, for the defendant, depre- cated this as a captious and ill- natured action, brought in the worst temper, to interfere with the field sports of Gentlemen, who endeavoured to give no offence, and had studiously avoided all those persons who had given notice of their dis- satisfaction. He admitted that a verdict must be given against his client, but he hoped the Jury would think a farthing damages most ample recompence. The Jury found for the plaintiff— Damages 2tte. Snoxall v. Wood.— This was another action against the Berkeley Hnnt. The defendant in this case was Major Wood, and the trespass alledged to have been committed in a place called Hanging Wood, 011 the plaintiff ' s farm. A witness of the name of Knowles stated, that on the day in question he saw Major Wood, in the uniform of the club, . riding in the wood in pursuit of a fox. On the other side, three members ot the Hunt swore, that Major Wood was never in the plate alledged, but rode round a different way. The Hon. and Rev. Mi. Capel was called, to speak to con- versations he had with Snoxall, the plaintiff in the present action, which in substance was— that lie was made an un- willing plaintiff ; that Lord Essex had influenced his landlord to compel him to give the members of the club notices; that he had sustained no damages— not even a farthing's worth ; and he had no objection to the hounds following a fox over his grcunds. — Another gentleman of the Hunt deposed to the same expressions from the plaintiff, who had declared he was sorry to have been induced to bring actions against his neigh- bouis and former Mends, and had hoped Lord Essex would have dropped them, but if the action went 011 he hoped it would be scouted out of Court. Lord Ellenborough observed, in his charge to the Jury, that if such was the plaintiff's opinion of his own action, he need not to have troubled thein with trying uf it, but have taken a much shorter method, by releasing the defendant. His declaration was, however, material in another point of view, as it went to the amount of the damages which be had declared to have been done. With respect to a tenant being obliged to bring actions by his landlord, such, a covenant might be a very beneficial one to proiect the inheritance, when demised uuder a long lease, and if such a power were abused, it did 1101 follow that it might not be used for very beneficial purposes.— The jury, after some deliberation, found for the defendant.— Another cause of the same de- scription was withdrawn. Last week a gooseberry was plucked hi the ga/ deS of Mr. Dickinson, at Rolhersike, near Egremont, which measured four inches and a half in circumference, and weighed Ihree ounces and one pennyweight. There is a remarkable oak tree at Hendre, near Denbigh, in Ihe farm yard of Ihe Rev. W. Chambers: its base is 33 feet in ciicumference; 15 feet from the ground Jit is 30 feet iti circumference.— Only one soli- tary branch remains in verdure of this venerable trunk, and, strange and ignoble reverse! this monarch of tbe woods forms a pig- stye capable of accommodating near a score ofthe swinish multitude. A few days since Michael Lynch, a private in ths 30th reg. fool, slabbed Mr. Edw. Gadsby. the landlord of the Green Dragon, Derby, in the lower part of his belly, iu so shocking a manner as to occasion bin death. I. yncli, with some of bis comrades, bad besti engaged in an affray in the streets mi ma lime before, nttd returning to his quarters with his drawn bayor. fet, he plunged it into the body of the deceased without any provocation. Mr. Gadsby haa left four youitg helpless orphan, his wife having died about a yeif ago. Lynch is committed to the county gaol. Sliecp Worrying.— An action wag brought al Oke- harn Assizes, against a person, to recover damages tin account of his dog having worried some sheep be- longing to a neighbour. It appearing in evidence that there were two dogs engaged in this predatory excur- sion, one only of which belonged to the defendant, his Counsel submitted, whether his client could be held liable, as it was doubtful which animal was Ihe criminal. •— The Judge hell, that even if one was principal, the other was an accessary, and therefore both were liable.— They were conjoint trespassers, and therefore liable jointly and severally. It was a remarkable cir- cumstance, said bis Lordship, but it was well known, that dogs agreed together to go out upon these ma- rauding expeditions.— Verdict for the plaintiff. Execution.— Samuel Tucker, who was t'ied on Wednesday se'nnight, nt Salisbury, for starving his wife to death, voluntarily confessed his guilt when at chapel on Thursday. On Friday at noon he was taken from his cell, and ascended the scaffold erected in the yardof the gaol. He continued to behave as became his un- happy situation. He exhorted the spectators to shun tbe fi st temptations to sin, to avoid breaking tile Sab- bath, which, be knew by experience, occasioned a dis- regard of other crimes. The rope was fixed, during which he appeared lo retain his fortitude. The plat- form was tben removed from under htm, and be was launched into eternity. His body was given to the surgeons for dissection. Tucker was 36 years old, bis wife was 5a. He was not in the distresssd circum stances he had descr bed himself; for when be could get no work at weaving, he travelled the country vend ing nostrums? styling himself" Dr. Tucker, Practi- tioner in Physic." He was, however, very ignorant, and must have done great injury in tbis occupation. Caution.— We are desired by a Correspondent inter- ested in parochial concerns, to insert the following' extract from S2d Geo. 3d, c. 45, sec. 8— where " It i » enacted, that if it shall be made appear to any two Justices that any poor person sha'I not use proper means to get employment, or if he is able to work, by his neglect of work, or hy spending his montiy in art alehouse, or places of bad repute, or in auy other improper manner, and shall not apply a proper pro- portion of the money earned by him towards tiie support of his wife and family, by which they or any of them shall become chargeable to their parish or township— he shall be considered as an idle and dis- orderly person, and be subject to such punishment as is directed for idle and disorderly persons by the said Act." JErostation.— Mad. Blanchard, in one of her late ascents from Paris, in a balloon, was caught in a storm of hail and rain; but notwithstanding, ascended so high that she was lost in clouds of whirlwinds, and did not alight from ber ba'loon near Viiieennes till between six: and seven in the morning the day afler she arose from. Paris. In consequence of the prodi^ ous lwight the balloon ascended, Mad. Blanchard fainted, aud con- tinued insensible for some time. Her ascension occupied 14 hours and a half. The afflicted with nervous disorders, those suffering from heat or change of climate, and those who labour under weakness and relaxations, originating in a variety of other causes, as well as those who are grown old before their time, by having unguardedly plunged themselves into the commis- sion of a solitary vice; a book entitled " Solomon's- Guide lo Heath," has happily been the means of recovery of the mind ns well as the body, and exalted thein from « state of melancholy and despair, to that of health, peace \ and hap- piness. The delusive habit here a- lludrd to, is not V- oiifinerl 10 the gay, the giddy, and tbt vain— for alas I the rich, the poor, the young, and those of riper years, even those of a serious and religious disposition, are often' drawn by an un- accountable infatuation to the commission of the melancholy orime. All such should seriously attend to the observation* and the cases described in tbe " Guide lo Health," price 3s.
