Member returned to serve in this present Parliament. Borough of Totness— T homas Peregrine Courtenay, ill the roum of William Adams, Esq. deceased. WEDNESDAY, dCTOBER SO. Paris papers have arrived to th,< 26th. They furnish Us with the official details of the late operations in the Peninsula. Suchet, it appears, entered the town of Murviedro on Ihe 27th ult. and on the 29th opened his trenches before the fortress. Blake had sent detachments of regulars and peasantry to act in the rear of the enemy, hut, according to Suchet, the Spaniards were defeated with considerable loss. The events in the vicinity of Ciodad Rodrigo are related in the usual style. The allies are said to have lost between T and 800 men, including 200 prisoners. According to Lord Wellington, the killed, wounded, and missing did not exceed 26L, General Stewart's orderly Serjeant, who was reported mi- sing, has the honour of being represented by Marmont " as one of Lord Wellington's aides de- camp. Marniont prelends that he could have annihilated the English army, had his infantry heen brought, on the. g5th. We might ask why they were not ? But the fact is, that in the affairs of that day lie had in the field 6000 horse and four divisions of infantry. The post occupied by the 4th division of our army, on ihe hills in front of Fuentc Guinaldo, because it was strengthened with a few works, is magnified into an entrenched camp I Bonaparte had returned to Amsterdam; and remained there on the 21st instant, after visiting Haarlem, the Texel Isle, and other places, where he was greeted with all the external demonstrations of jov. He appears, however, by the objects lo which lie chiefly directs his attention, to feel convinced that he does not reign in the hearts of his new subjects. Neither tho laboured panegyrics in which they have addressed him, nor their awkward efforts to dance themselves into his good graces, can persuade him that Ihey are to be trusted. The anxiety with which he enquires into the state of the fortresses and military works in every part of the country, shews that he wishes to impress the Dutch with terror,, well knowing that to "" ain their affection is impracticable. The circumstance of the King of Rome having cut his first tooth, is announced with official solemnity in the Moniteur. This mari vello is occurrence will, no doubt, be eagerly seized upon by the Legislature and other PuWic Bodies, as a subject of congratulatory addresses to the father. It is stated in an article from Berlin, that the friendly dispositions of the neighbouring powers had induced the King of Prussia to intermit the prepar- ations and labours in the fortresses, which a prudent precaution had suggested. In Germany, the conscripts are sent to the fortresses, to learn their exercise ; but we read of the marching of 110. armies, except armies of Custom- house Officers— and a war against British manufacture and colonial produce, is the only one which we are likely to witn ss in the North of Europe. All Ihe Prussian troops which were in Servia have received orders to inarch immediately for Timok.— Several Servian battalions have set out for the same destination. There are not more than from 500 to 800 R ussians in Belgrade, who will very souu march. We are assured that Czerni Georges has taken the chief command upon the banks of the Timok, and that the Rus ians there are under his orders. General Abladen has been named Commander in Chief of the Servian corps charged with covering the" right bank of the Danube, and to observe the Turkish army from Bosnia, which has received considerable reinforceraeuts. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 31. An express was received this day from Windsor, stating, " That his Majesty had a restless night, and was not better in either bodily or mental health." Tbe movements of General Rallusteros have at length had the effect of drawing towards liitu so lar » e a body of the enemy, that he lias found it uecessari to retreat under the walls of Gibraltar. His 3000 men have been marched against by Soult, with 9000. The Spaniards, on the approach of this superior force, retreated in good order, without having been attacked. This intelligence has been brought hy the Woolwich store- ship from Gibraltar.

By this circumstance the position of the British troops at Tariffa might he made somewhat critical, if it ere not certain that the wind must either bring the | Spaniards to their support, or enable the British to return to Cadiz, the transports having doubtless remained at Tariffa. I11 the former case, tne junction j of such a force at Tariffa must operate as an important • diversion for Baiiasteros, who has shewn that he is never negligent of opportunities for returning lo the field.

Letters have been'received at Plymouth from Lisbon, dated the 17 ill of October, which confirm the account? of the Allied A rmy having advanced ar. d gone iuto can- tonments on the Portuguese Iroutiyr. Fuente de Gui- naldo is again iu our possession, the'British light divi- sion being posted there. The tirst division is eight It agues in Ihe rear of ihe Coa, and the other di visions are cautoned in different villages on the banks of the same river. Great exertions are making to repair the fortifications of Almeida, from which it is conjectured that Lord Wellington intends to make a stand in his present position, if the French should again advance.— We regret to state that toe sickness of Ihe army is stated to be very extensive. It is said there are up- wards of 10,000 sick in the depot ut Lisbon. The Wolverine store ship, arrived from the Mediter- ranean at Portsmouth, brought over Lord Yakutia and Lord Forbes. A letter from Gibraltar, received by the Woolwich, gives the following account of the proceedings in the neighbourhood ol lhat place : — GIBRALTAR, OCTOBER IS— The Spanish division, com- manded by General Ballasleros, lias at last attracted suffi- ciently the enemy's attention lo bring them down upon him Some days ago he left Kiuiene, where lie had established his head- quarters ; and on the loth inst the French made him fall batik upon the heights of Sail Iti, que, on the right of which town he took up a position, extending his line iu J west direction. There he remained until yester- has been apprehended, so that the [ guide only has evaded his pursuer.. A coroner's inquest sat on the body of Mr Sueil, and brought in a verdict of wilful murder against the guide and the three Frenchmen who accompanied him FROM THE ION VON GAZETTE. DOWN1NG- STREET, NOVEMBER 2. f0c& i0ctipt A Dispatch, of which the following is an extract, has been this day received from General Viscount Wellington, dated Frenada, October 16. " There has been 110 material alteration in the position of the Enemy's troops since I addressed you last — The Annv of Portugal are cantoned beyond Placeulia, having one division at Placeutia, with their advanced posts on the Alagou, and the cavalry ou the North Side cf the Mountains which divide Castile from Esti etundnra, about Peuacanda. — 1 learn from Lieut.- Col. Sir H. Douglas, that the enemy are fortifying the posts which they occupy in front of the Artny of Galliciti— One division of the 5th corps, w ith a considerable body of cavalry, have crossed the Guadiaua at Mcrida, under Gen. Girard; and ihe remainder of the corps was to the South of that River.—- I have received a report, that Don Julian Sanchez yesterday carried oft' a large ^ iro portion of tbe cattle grazing near Ciudad Rodrigo, and destined for thc supply of the garrison ; and he made pri- soner the Governor, General Reyuaud, either by surprise, or ill conseqtteuce of the latter having endeavoured to save the r attle with a very inadequate force." [ The Gazette contains an account of the capture of a French cutter privateer, of 6 guns, and 40 men, oil" the Naze of Norway, by the Plover sloop of war, Captain Campbell; and a French privateer, of 10 guns, and 78 men, oft' thc Flemish Banks, by the Quebec frigate, Cupl. Hawtayne.] an east and day evening, when, on finding the enemy was advauciii- in numbers, be retieated further towards the old Spanish lines; and n few hours utter the French made their appearance in the very position which ( Jen. Ballasfeios occupied before upon Ihe heights near St. Itoque. Small skirmishing parlies were sent on both sides, which, together with tbe firing of three gun- boats, lying ut anchor oil* Puente Mayorza, were the only hostilities that occurred in the course of Ihe day — The Spa lim'ds, before night fall, took shelter under the guns of the garrison ; and the French, 1 find, this morning, remain in tbe same position. As to their force, we have no positive accounts ; some people making it amont to 10,000 men, whilst others hardly believe it tube tXHKi strong — Ballusieros, I should think, has not yet full 5U00 regular troops under his command. The curiosity excited by the appearance of the enemy iu this neighhotn hood is beyond description. Since yesterday, thai part of the rock which faces the- neutral ground has'been constantly crowded with spectators, beholding objects well deserving commiseration, iu llie vast numbers of Spanish fugitives from St. Roque, who are now scattered in all directions, near our bay- side barrier, without any sort of accommodation whatever, and the greatest part of them even without the mealis of sub- sistence. Every succour from lrer. ee has been bestowed upon ' these unfortunate people; our reservoirs and tanks have iccu emptied ; and many families in the garrison were this morning without a sufficient quantity of water to afford them th' means of getting a breakfast. " Should the enemy ront i ue in this present position, ihe Spanish ai my and the fu itives can only escape by passing through and embarking from hence; after which, we expect to be annoyed by the enemy, who, although they cannot materially injure us, may keep us in a constant state of alarm. Last night I saw some tiring al Algesiras, and thought the French had enter- ed tbat town ; which, however, is fully contradicted this morning No business whatever is doing at this moment: sales, and all other transactions of that nature, are w holly suspended. 4' Notwithstanding the late reverses, the Catalonians continue to display the most ardent patriotism ; being in arms wherever they can provide themselves with them. Baro; i d'Eroles has been appointed Captain General ofthe principality, in lieu ol General Lacy.— Previous to this change, the body of men under the General's command, which by his last dispatch amount- ed only to 1100 men, had been increased to S000. It was expected that the French would turn their arms against Cardona, the strongest place left in the hands of the patriots in that part of the Peninsula. Yesterday his Royal Highness, the Prince Regent, inspected the 10th Royal Ilussars, at the Barracks in Brighton.— The inspection was of a very close descrip- tion, and occupied better than two hours and a half.— The proceedings on foot having terminated, others en- sued with the regiment mounted, the whole, in troops, and in single files, in their best uniforms, and in their stable dresses, passing his Royal Highness. Many of the new troop horses turned out to be of a description in no way to please his Royal Highness who, in loud and unequivocal terms, expressed his disapprobation of tbem. It is said they will be returned to the dealer. Fatal Marriage — The following fracas lately look place in the neighbourhood of Bedford. A Mrs. Bartlett, a very re- spectable industrious . oman, well known as one ofthe first platters iu the county, married, in the year 1794, a young mail of the name of Henderson. Being in the sea- faring line, he wr. s obliged to leave her only a few months after his inai- riage, and sailed for Bengal, as Captain's servant ill Ihe Lord North East 1 ndii- inan. On the return of thc ship she received a letter from him, stating, that having had a very advantageous offer from a Gentleman at Calcutta, lie had, with the permission of his Captain, accepted it; but that he fully expected to he'in England at the expiration of three years, as the Gentleman in whose employ he was, intended quitting India for Europe at tbat period. Three years elapsed, and time still rolled on 1 but no husband, nor any tidings of him, reached his loving spouse At the end of live years he was given up as dead by Mrs. Bartlcf t, as well us all her friends ; and liis supposed decease was regularly mourned. Early lu 180,), she married John Bartlett, by whom she has had two children. About ten days since, as she and ber husband were sitting alone at supper, the door of the cottage was suddenly opened with great violence, and who should stalk in but Henderson— fury in his eye, aud a stout cane in his baud. Without any preface, l. e seized upou Bartlett, and literally threshed him till lie could no longer lay it on ; then turning to the astonished and horror- struck Mrs. li. lie told her, that if she would not instantly consent to leave her present protector, and accompany him, he would sei've her in the same manner. This w- r-. s immedi- ately assented to ou her part, leaving poor Bartlett bruised without, and pained within, to the sudden loss of his car a ' sposa !— Star. At the Middlesex Sessions yesterday, a Mrs. Chapman, a very genteelly dressed woman, who stated herself to he a leaident in Nelson- street, Commercial Road, exhibited articles of the peace against her husband. She averred, j that she was in constant fear of her life or some bodily harm from his brutality ; and stated iu her exhibit many instance!* , of his Outrageous conduct, of his being in llie habit of I threatening to murder her, Sic— The husband appeared at the bar, according to Mr. Andrews, as an amateur listener, 1 ( lie uot being obliged to attend), and made a defence to the charges of his rib, which convulsed the court with laughter. " 1 have been a sea- furiiig man, please your honour," said lie," and though 1 have been in many engagements, J never met such a spit- fire frigate as this here wife of mine in my life. I am her third husband ; and God help the other two, if she has treated them in the same way that she has behov- ed to inc. During the five years thai 1 have lived witn her, she has banged me five times, kept £ goo of my ow n money from me, and beat me out of my house by force of arms. I ain, please your honour, the pcaceablest man that ever put leg on ground. Never did I insult her, or threaten her; and if ever 1 do, may I be hanged out of thc first yard arm in tbe river. She is thc greatest reprobate, sir, ihat ever walked— she would marry auy body— she bids dcfiance to God and man; and you may, therefore, guess how lilile she cares about me. I am the most injurerlest andhenpfek'd- e'i husband in the three kingdoms He then slated that lie was a pilot in the river; anil as he denied so pointedly tbe charges of his wife, tbe Court allowed biin 24 hours to put iu a regular answer, before they should bind him over to keep the peace. He then bowed to the Court, and said be would apply to a. man of I - w for advice — To the admiration of the Court, the parties left it together, ill very apparent amity. Murder — On Tuesday last, six French officers, who were oil their | arolc lit Oakliaiupton, escaped from that town, accompanied hy an English guide. Having crossed Dart- inuor, on Thursday afternoon, they came near Bnvey Tracey, whcte, meeting with a woman, tlicy enquired if there was any other road than through the. town ? being answered iu ihe negative, they made a halt. The wonum communicated the particulars to some of thc towus- people, Mini four men went in pursuit of them i when they were discovered, three Of them surrendered, and were secured ; hut the other three, v. ith the guide made oft', and were followed by two of the men. The first that came up with them was Mr. Christopher Snell, when the guide instantly turning round, with a dagger, stabbed him to Ihe heart, nnd be expired on the spot Lord Clifford soon after order ed a troop of yeoman cavalry to go in pursuit of them. The three who surrendered were examined by thc Itcv. Mr, B'arringlon, a Justice of the Peace, at Chudleigh, and com- mitted to Devon county gaol. Oil Sunday night another prisoner was brought in, and, after an examination before a Magistrate, on Monday morning, was committed to pri- son The same evening a fifth was taken at Denbury, and brought to Exeter; since which, wc understand, the sixth SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2. An express was received yerserday from Windsor; stating—" That his Majesty was somewhat composed during the night, and appeared heller in the morning." A Lisbon Mail ' has arrived this day, with papets to the 21st ult. The Southern provinces are, probably, again about to become the scene of active operations. Marmont, it is stated, advances towards Badajoz, as if with au intent to lorce a passage towards Lisbon through thc Alenlejo. His intention has, however, not yet been sufficiently shewn to induce Lord Wellington to follow him. The main British army remained nearly in its former positions. Private letters however state that a considerable force watches the south eastern frontier of Portugal. The second brigade was at Portalegre on the 14th.— A reinforcement of 800 infantry had reach- ed Lisbon from the Mediterranean. By intelligence received from the Caraccas in letters from Jamaica, it appears that llie cily of Valentia had successfully resisted two attacks by the army of Ven- ezuela, under thc command of General Miranda. A Mail from Anholt and auother from Heligoland arrived yesterday. The letters from Petersburg!! say nothing on the politics of that Cabinet. The price of Russian produce, it is stated had fallen, while that of colonial goods had risen considerably in consequence of large purchases being made by German merchants. Bonaparte is negociating with the King of Denmark for the surrender of Altona, and some olher towns in Holstein.-— The homeward bound convoy, which sailed from Wingoe Sound on the 2oth, is said lo have been dispersed in a gale of wind. The leters from Heligo- land, which are to the 18th, give au account of a dread- ful storm, in whit Ii several merchaulmenliave been lost off that island, but fortunately the crews were saved. It also appears that tbe Horatio frigate has been iu great danger. The Turks are said to have destroyed a large body of Russians, on the north bank of the Danube. It is said lhat fourteen additional ships of war of considerable force are immediately to be put in com- mission. A late rise in the Funds is to be accounled for by va- rous causes. In the first place a considerable purchase was inade on Wednesday, hy oue broker, in consequence of an order iu a bill passed lasi Session of Parliament; the account of the Contractors for the former Lean is nearly run off, and the Commissioners will begin on Wednesday next to buy 125,0001. per day. These, aud nothing political, are the causes ofthe rise. The recent advices from America, as far as they relate to llie trading part of the American community, are of a. most distressing tendency. In every Slate where commerce has hitherto flourished," numerous failures have already taken place. In Philadelphia, above sixty respectable, houses- are said lo have stopped payment within a few weeks. At New York, Baltimore, and other towns, the same disastrous consequences have been severely fell. The city of London contains many respectable merchants who must, we fear, participate in the misfortunes which have befallen their American friends. Oue respectable house stopped payment yes* terday: arid it is whispered, that several others must shortly share the same fate. Thc latest accounts from Cadiz announce the re estab- lishment of the Irquisition in Spain, which is con demned by the journalists, but supported by many Members of the Cortes. The fleet from the Baltic, destined for the Ilumber, arrived there on Wednesday evening ; and it is report- ed, that the fleet destined for London, and the other ports, were seeu off Yarmouth yesterday. Letters from St. Petersburgh of the 9lh ult. say, it was the prevalent opinion in the B ussian capital, t at all idea of war wilh France had been relinquished for Ihe present. On the . subject of commercial matters, there were great complaints of the British agents not being able to get their demands satisfied; legal means they have none, for the war between the two countries placed these out of their reach. Hemp was lower in price; colonial produce on the rise, inconsequence of large orders from the interior. LInr r.,— Iu the Court of King's Bench, on Friday, Mr. H. White, the elder, publisher ofthe Independent Wliig, a Sunday's newspaper, w as tried for a libel published in lhat newspaper. The libel complained of accused the Adminis- tration of general corruption, anil characterized it as futally inefficient— as betraying its imbecile character in its slight est movements— as scoffed at by the rest of mankind— as pulling llie seal to its character by the corrupt and despotic act in question. The writer knew that it had always been customary lo bestow rewards on Captains, but maintained that il ought to lieexieiided still further. Bonaparte avoid- ed all distinction iu his army i there, merit alone ensured reward: and hence arose that enthusiasm which prevailed in his service. In ours, ihe melancholy reverse w as found The spirit of the language of ihe Gazette, in which these rewards were announced, was, thai thesupcriorofiicer al. ue was honoured, the brave soldier contcmncd as below the others level, aud accordingly refused the same reward. In thecoursc of an able charge to the Jury by Lord Ellen- borough, his Lordship observed, that the defendant had praised the victories of Crcssy and Poiciitts, and declaimed against what he had been pleased to term t he equivocal and haircn bailies and relapsed energies of ttie present lime.—. If these insinuations were conveyed to the miilds of ihe sol- diery, it was impossible to conceive any thing more danger- ous, any t liing more apt lo unnerve their arm, when lifted up against the enemy-. The diligent emissaries of Bona- parte could not convey a more dangerous poison to them — But, were the energies of the country' relapsed? At what period had that relapse taken placer Was it when Lord Nelson pioslrated the uaval power of the enemy ? Was it Hurler Capt. II ostein I lie Mediterranean ? Were these among the instances which he would wish to point out? Was it wlieu Ihe praams were cut out and destroyed before the face of the iniglily conqueror r Were these the relapsed and feeble energies he alluded lo5 He bad- lerined the late victories equivocal und barren battles. In so far as these battles had been productive of no acquisition of territory, they could alone he termed barren ; but in whatever related to the valour and wisdom displayed iu them, they were uot equi- vocal, ami in no respect inferior to any thing of former times The defendant concluded, as was generally the case in similar publications, with a compliment to Bonaparte, and praise of his a-. niy, with whichlic- haa thought proper to contrast Hie melancholy reverse exhibited ill the army of this country. His lordship concluded with laying if down as undeniable, that the plain niirl obvious tendency of that publication was to sow dissentions ill, the army, and that it could he looked ou in noiither light than highly slanderous and defamatory — The jury retired about five minutes past one o'clock, and, at near six o'clock, returned a verdict, finding the defeudaiil guilty of publishing the libel ; but on i'.- count of of liis absence from town, and necessity of in- trusting un agent with the management of the publication, lltey recommended him to mercy; which verdict Mr. Low- ten, in the absence of Lord Ellenborungh, having refused to receive, ( hey again retired, and shortly after returned a verdict of " not ' guilty, because it is not proved that he was privy to the alleged libel- previous to its publication." ION ION, Monday Night, November ill, 1811 STATE OF THE KING'S HEALTH.— The following Bulletin was yesterday exhibited :— " II indsot- Castle, Nov. 2,— His Majesty continues ucarly iu the same stale." Au express was received this day from Windsor, staling, -*• That his Majesty hail very little sleep during the night, and did not appear to be belter this morning." The Prince Regent will not return to Carlton House until Thursday next, in order to preside at a Council to be holden on Friday, v. hen the final prorogation of Parliament will be settled, and Friday, the 10th of January, it is expected, will then be fixed for thc meeting of both Houses for the dispatch of public business. We are sorry to stale that the intelligence is con- firmed of the fever having been introduced on board his Majesty's ships Implacable and Temeraire, at I'ort Mahon. The deaths were from two to five daily. From the ships having been taken into the Lazaretto, aud the sick into the Hospitals, it was hoped lhat the progress of thc fever would soou be stopped. A letter from the Mediterranean announces a dis- turbance at Tunis; about 4000 of the troops there had declared themselves in op position to the Govern- ment. Their attempts, however, were successfully opposed by a strong Arab force, at the head of which was a British Midshipman, who volunteered his services j on the occasion. The Cambrian frigate is arrived at Portsmouth from the Mediterranean. It is supposed she brings late accounts from Malta and Gibraltar, but, as no inter- course has taken place between that ship and the shore, neither the time of sailing, nor the intelligence she brings have transpired. The letters are detained : for fumigation, and are expected to be up to- morrow. The Anholt mail which arrived to- day furnishes no intelligence of importance from the North. The latest intelligence from the Russian Capital is brought by an ] English traveller, who reached town on Saturday last. ] That gentleman assures us that the Russian Govern- j On Thursday evening last Mr. Joseph Lancaster delivered j his Lecture in the County Ilall, on the important subject of Education, to a very numerous aud re? pcctablc audietice; in which he explained the economy of time, labour, and expense uf his own. system, and very forcibly contrasted it with that* of others. He was heard with the greatest attention throughout the whole, anil his benevolent and philanthropic sentiments were received with the warmest approbation. At ( be conclusion of liis Address, Mr. L. repeated an otter he had made at the time lie delivered a former Lecture licre, to send down a person to organize a School, if tbe inhabitants would establish one, and ( lie oiler was immediately accepted. Charles Page, Esq. moved three- resolutions, expressive of the benefits that were likely to result from a school ou this system, and proposed a subscription for such an establishment. The resolutions were unanimously carried; and William Smith, Esq. generously proposed to give a piece of ground, ou which the school might be erected ; lite offer was accepted, and a resolution of thunk3 voted to him for the same.— See Advertisement The collections at St. Joint's Chapel, after the Sermons hy the Rev. J. S. Pipe, of Leeds, on Sunday last, for the benefit ofthe Shrewsbury General Sunday School, amounted fo upwards of £ 34. Tne dispute icspecting the last day's plate at Oswestry, having been left for the decision of the Jockey Club, bus been referred, anil given iu favour of Mr. Shaw's bay- gelding Cockspinner, by Cesirio, dam by Sir Peter, four year, old, the horse named as the winner ( Hylas) not having carried his proper weight. The dispute respecting | the second best horse at Chester raees, - he last day, has j beeq given '. 11 favour of Hambletou Jack, and the money r paid to Mr. Shaw. | It appears that some of the circumstances relating to the | fire at the Linen Factory of Messrs. Marshall, Button, and I Co. have been erroneously stated. The cause of the confla- gration was N OT the bursting of any gas- pipe, or feeder as it was improperly called. The pipes are never in any danger of bursting The real cause still remains unascertained. It is known only that some tow caught tire j hut whether from the fiarae of gas or that of lamp is uncertain : nor can any just conclusion he drawn from it injurious to the general safety of gas lights.— We are happy to add, that thc two men, belonging to the New Factory, who were dangerously hurt by the falling of the wall upon them, while in the act of throwing water on the flames, are now in a fair way of recovery.

It is fully determined, as far as possible, to observe a strict neutrality. By the Paragon, from Philadelphia and New York, there are advices both by letter and by Mr. llonaldson, passenger on board that ship. When he left lliose two cities 110 intermittent fever had made its appearatice, and the inhabitants were as healthy as ustt-. l at this season of the year. It has heen mentioned, that a rob- bery to a considerable amount had been committed 011 the Charlsion fiaiik. It is now said, lhat thc property has been discovered. The track of a cart, and Ihe print of Ihe feet of a slave, were observed at the place where the business of tho Bank was conducted, and was pursued for some distance to a dunghill, under which ihe gold and other specie, & c. was found. An American House of great eminence and respect- ability stopped payment in the City, on Friday, for upwards of half a million. Tucker, the Mock Parson, was this day found gulitv at the Old Bailey, and ordered for seven years transpor- tation.

Trade to the British Colonies.— An entirely new system h:; s been adopted as to the commerce of Ihe British settlements in North America with their Southern neighbours. About two mouths since a de- putation of merchants submitted to the Board of Trade the expediency of permitting American vessels to enter the ports of SI. Andrew's, St. John's, New Brunswick, and Halifax, and the ground of this suggestion was, that the citizens of the United States might be enabled to conduct a contraband trade, by which Brilish manu- factured goods would obtain a beneficial sale iu the Republic. After two months deliberation, the Board of Trade has thought fit to signify its concurrence with the pro- posal, and the merchants have been informed, that orders would be transmitted to the Governors anil proper officers at the places above distinguished, to allow any British manufactured goods or West Indian colonial produce to be transported iu American vessels to the territories of the United States. And further, to permit American vessels to import into those places est uuanimity-- one spirit pervading the whole; and that it was resolved to use unremitted exertions to effect the pur- poses of the institution. Oil Thursday last, a respectable tiadesman of Tewkes- bury seized an unlawful uel, in a river communicating with thc Severn, at that town; and, from the lauda- ble zeal with which the Magistrates have hitherto acled, it may be ex- pected the net will he destroyed, and the proprietor fined in the full penalty.— On Friday, 21 illegal nets and 2 wheels were publicly burnt in the Coi'u- Market, Worcester, by order of the Magistrates While the statutes are thus rigidly enforced, and when the great expense attendant on the manufacture of fishing nets, joined with the fine attached to unlawful fishing, are considered, it may leasonably be hoped that such a severe loss will effectually deter men from offending against such beneficial and salutary laws — laws which are admirably calculated to be of peculiar, advantage to fishermen them- selves, and a like important lo the poor individual and the rich. We are informed, that a Veterinary Snrgcon of Chelten- ham has invented a machine for thc purpose of throwing or casting Horses, by which means the diileient operations of surgery may be performed upon that noble animal, with safety and precision, and whereby l- hose./ cifa/ consequences which so often occur, by throwing horses in Ihe ordinary manner, are'entirely prevented.

An Attempt to point out ihe Errors of the present Theory, und an Apology for an Inquiry into a new and more rational hypothesis. That Comets arc inhabited cannot Ire doubted ; this is to ' be interred from tl. e acknowledged perfections of God, and from what we have opportunities of observing with respect to the extension of life and enjoyments. The great vicissi- tudes of climates is the Only plausible objection that has been made to this opinion. Tbis objection is founded upon propositions advanced by philosophers ( Sir Isaac Newton amongst the rest) which 1 conceive to be false. Philoso- phers have taken for granted that the heat of every planet in our system is inversely as the square of its distance from tbe sun. This proposition I apprehend to he contrary to experiment, . Were beat a certain body proceeding immedi- ately from the sun, I allow, that Ihe quantity of heat in any space would be inversely as Ihe square of its distance from the sun. But I see- no reason for believing that heat comes from tbe sun, while there is much reason for thinking that it does not. We perceive that light comes from the sun. We also perceive that heat is- produced in the bodies, on which the rays ofthe sun's light fall; hence we are apt to confound light and heal together, though it is demonstrable that light is not heat, and that heat is not light. Experience teaches us tbat different quantities of heat are - produced by the same cause, according to tbe medium oil which it operates, that the particular aptitude of any body to be heated is nearly as tbe elasticity of that body'or the cohesion of its parts, and that whatever produces a tremulous motion in the parlicles of any body excites heal in tbat body, and vice versa, whatever excites heat produces a tremulous motion iu the particles of the body. In the five methods enumerated by philosophers by which heat is produced, viz. by attrition, by chemical mixture, by fomentation, by inflammation, and by the sun, the heat depends on the tremulous or vibratory motion which by one means or another is excited in the par- tides of the heated body. I proceed to apply'tbis theory of the generation of heat to the purpose of proving that Comets niay be fit for the residence of ( material; intelligent creatures. The move plainly to illustrate the manner in which this theory may De employed to shew how Comets may be habi- table globes, it may be proper to apply it in accounting for u fact which comes under human observation. Within tbe torrid zone a person feels extreme beat at the foot of a high mountain, at the lop of which the air is always in a freezing state. At the foot of the mountain the air, which is a very clastic substance, being much compressed, i. c. tbe particles of it being brought very near to one another by the weight of the incumbent atmosphere,, is there capable of receiving a greater degree of tremulous motion from the impulse of the sun's rays! & of thereby exciting the sensations of great bes t in a human body; whereas the air at tbe top of the mountain being not so compressed, but tbe particles of il in conse- quence of its elasticity, and tbe small degree of pressure from above to counteract that elasticity, being much fur- ther removed from one another, is capable of receiving a pro- portionably less degree of tremulous motion from the im- pulse of the sun's rays ; and therefore ill tbat situation the person feels no heat, but extreme cold, and 111 a short time would be frozen to death. I11 the hitter situation, however, the persons miglil be miles nearer tbe sun than in the former. This fact then serves to shew that heat does not depend on the distance alone of a body from the sun, but partly, at least, if not principally, 011 tlie quantity nnd depth of the elastic medium on which its rays fall, and which they put into a vibratory motion ; if we keep this observation in our minds, we shall see how Ibis theory of tbe generation of heat may serve to explain how Comets may be no inconvenient places of residence for such creatin es as arc before mention- ed. Dr. Herscbel also assigns very forcible reasons for con- cluding that the opinion commonly received of the sun being a body of real, fire is futile aud erroneous. That Ihe sun is a luminous and not an igneous body," has been thought highly probable by other modern philosophers, an opinion which every new step in philosophy gives great support to. The height of the atmosphere of a Comet is frequently eight or 10,000 miles, whilst that of the atmosphere of the earth is hardly supposed to exceed 60 or 70, The particles of tiiis atmosphere, much more than 100 times as high us ours, may also be smaller, more subtle aud elastic, and much more easily heated than the particles of our atmosphere ; whence the sun's rays may be able to agitate and warm such an atmosphere compressed together hy the weight of eight or 10,000 miles at a distance from the sun, in which we, having over us an atmosphere of only 60 01* 70 miles, should feel the most extreme cold. It is observable tbat as a Comet moves towards the sun it acquires a tail, which increases its length tbe nearer the Comet comes to the sun, aud is long- est when the Comet is nearest to it. This tail I suppose to consist of a quantity of the Comet's atmosphere driven be- hind it by the impelling force of thesun's rays, which force in regions near the sun must be great. I11 proportion as the tail, consisting of the atmosphere of the Comet, lengthens behind it, the quantity of tbe same atmosphere, on the side turned towards the sun, grows less and less, and is least when Ihe Comet is nearest the sun. As, on the side turned towards the sun, the quantity of atmosphere continually de- creases tbe nearer the Comet approaches the sun, and again continually increases the farther it recedes from it, there may be always so much of it on that side as is sufficient, by being put into a vibratory motion by the action of the sun's rays upon it, for tbe purpose of keeping up a proper degree of heat in the bodies of the inhabitants in every part of the orbit which the Comet describes. Tims does this hypo- thesis concerning the manner in which heat is generated, enable ns to conceive how a Comet may be like the earlli, inhabited by rational beings, who may never suffer any destructive extreme of heat or cold, but enjoy, like us, a comfortable existence. The luminous appearance of the tail of a Comet, is ac- counted for, by observing tbat every particle near the surface of the immense stream of air, which is driven behind it by tbe impelling force of tbe sun's rays, must lie enlightened by the refraction and reflecjion of those rays, and hence exhibits the faint appearance of a blaze. The Comet discovered in the month of September, 1807, was the most beautiful that had been seen for thirty years.— Its nucleus appeared like a star of the first or second mag- nitude, but its light paler : its tail not very extensive, only a few degrees. Its light, however, and lhat of ils nucleus very striking. Its motion one degree per day towards the north, and rather more than one degree towards the east.— It was surrounded by a nebulosity of about six minutes dia- meter, and bad a tail of about 11 degree and a half in length. This resembled none of the orbits of any Comet observed before. It passed its perihelion the 19th of September. C. 0. Fanaticism.— At the late Leeds Sessions, J. Burnley, a weaver, of Beeston, was brought before the court, on a charge of deserting liis family. The prisoner admitted lhat he earned I rum 18s, to 20s. a week, the residue of which, after supplying his own necessities, he distributed among his poor neighbours; conceiving lhat his wife and family were not entitled to his atten- tion, unless they were in greater distress than others. In the course of a long dialogue with Ihe court, he quoted texts of Scripture with intent lo prove that he was bound to give to those lhat were more distressed than his own family— to forsake father, mother, wife, I and children ; that he had indeed acted contrary to the 1 Gospel in taking a wife, and sinned in so doing. Some gentlemen who knew the prisoner, stated that formerly he was an industrious man, and that he had read the Bible till he. had bewildered himself; that he would ab- sent himself whole days together, and retire into the woods and fields for the purpose of reading it. After some time spcnl in this manner, he went away from his family, and refused lo contribute lo Iheir support.— What he had said of giving away his earnings to objects of distress, was correct.— When told that one of his children was extremely ill, and needed support, he said " God would give il ;" the circumstance made no impression 011 him.— The prisoner's wife having re- quested that 110 severity might be used towards hiin, he was discharged. During tha last summer, a lady at Aldborough had the misfortune to lose a topaz broach, which she next morning employed the town cryer to proclaim through the streets, with a suitable reward ; but whether from the illegibility of the writing, or the misconcep- tion of this public orator, he called it a top- mast broken, which he thought more congenial lo the vicinity ot Ihe element where the loss was sustained— A few years since, Ihe cryer at the same place was ordered to pro- claim a reward for the discovery of a couple of black and white seller bitches, which Colonel Vivian ( then resident there) had lost; but from the cryer's incapa- city to decipher Ihe hand writing, and his little know- ledge of the canine race, after puzzling himself for a long time, he construed couple to meap a pair, and thus proclaimed the Colonel's misfortune:—" Lost, a pair of black and white satin breeches,-" which could not fail to excite the risibility of the company at that well- frequenled bathing- place, more especially as the reference for regard was to he made personally to the Colonel himself, who was much quizzed for the singularity of his supposed tasty apparel. Fiorin Grass.— Wo hear from Cumberland, that at the late great Agricultural Meeting at Workington, the prejudices so long entertained against Irish Fiorin Grass were completely done away.— Two circumstances oc- casioned this decided change of opinion:— First, the personal attendance of Dr. Richardson, the discoverer, who with much good nature and condescension, pointed out lhat grass ( very abundant in Cumberland), to every one that desired to know it!; displayed its value ; de- tailed ils use; shewing, at. the same time, the facility with which it was collected and laid down.—' But it was Mr. Curwen himself that brought about effectual con- viction 5 thatworlhy President in the most candid man- ner, freely acknowledged from his chair, his former errors 011 the subject of Fiorin, stating the facts which induced him to change his opinion, and particularly the immense crop he had gone purposely to view at Gen. Dirom's, at. Annan. Mr. Curwen was not content with the public declaration of his full confidence in the im- mense value of Fiorin Grass, he assured the meeting that he would instantly proceed to its cultivation on a great scale ; and to encourage others, he publicly pro- mised to his tenants, that if they would lay down part of their ground with Fiorin Grass, should Ihe measure fail of the expected success, he would immediately repay whatever expense they had incurred in the attempt.— Mi-. Curwen is now on a tour with Dr. Richardson through the north of England and Scotland, to meet the several Agricultural Societies who have requested their attendance, aud arranged their respective times so as to suit the convenience of these zealous amateurs.— The last meeting is to be that of Wigtownshire, called by their President Edward Boyd, Esq. of Castlemorton, the most spirited and improving Agriculturist in Galway. The Exciseman outwitted.— A cruel trick was lately served upon an exciseman by some of the Highlanders residing- among the Trosacks of Loch Catherine. A quantity of contraband whiskey having been distilled and collected, the parties were at some loss to find out a mode of evading the vigilance of an Excise Officer, who was upon the qui 1lire. At length one or two of them went to the Exciseman, and informed him, that there was a private still at work in a small island in Loch Catherine, and that there' was a considerable quantity of illegal spirits there secreted. Imposed upon by this intelligence, he begged they would land him 011 the island, for the purpose of making the seizure. Glad to find their device so far successful, he was immediately embarked on board a boat, and speedily landed upon the spot Scarcely, however, had he set his foot on the shore, when his hopeful guides tacked about, and left the unfortunate man a prey lo disappointment, vexation, and hunger, for three days; at the end of which time, having success- fully carried away their contraband goods, they restored him lo his wife and family, in a state little short of starvation. Pedeslrianisvi.— Mr. West, who started on Saturday morning from Mr. Lee's, the Western Shades, in Jermyn- street, on a match against time, arrived at Canterbury in IS hours, having two hours to spare. It rained, without intermission, during Ihe whole of the performance ; and Mr, W. missing his road 011 Blackheath, lost more than two miles ; so that the whole distance was more than 60 miles; which, con- sidering the disadvantage of the weather, and the invigorating liquor, pure waler, lb which the pedes- trian was restrained, may be considered as 110 trifling sporting achievement, Mr. Ilarwood, another Gentleman Pedestrian, per- formed 18 miles in two hours, on Monday, on the Bath road, for a wager of 100 guineas. The East Kent Militia 011 its passage from Falmouth to Ireland narrowly escaped being wrecked ; they were nearly driven on a rock 67 miles from Dublin; but, after driving about five hours at the mercy of the waves, a strong gale came on, and carried them safe into Dublin.— The cheapness of provisions at Athlone Barracks, where they are quartered, is somewhat remarkable; meat is from 2jd. to 4d, per pound; flour 3d. per pound ; _ salt pork 4d. per pound ; pota- toes 1 lib. for 3d. salt" lid. per quart; whiskey, rum, and gin 4d. a quartern; tobacco 5d. per ounce ; a fat goose ( weight 9lb.) 3s. some for Is. 6d. ducks Is. 3d. per couple ; eggs three a penny ; roast pork, and all dressed meat at the cook: shops 6( 1. per. pound. Wednesday afternoon, whilst a man was digging chalk in Marlborough- hill, the hank fell in on him ; and, when dug out, he vvas found in an erect posture, lifeless. His affectionate wife, on her arrival at the spot, said—" it was no matter for him, as he had work enough to do at home." Two German missionaries are going out to Sierra Leone in a ship now lying at the Mother Bank. They are men of very amiable manners, and of acquirements much superior to those of many of their brethren, hav- ing passed five years in the studies suitable to their mission. Besides a competent knowledge of Greek, they are versed in Arabic, and have learned what can be attained by study, of the language current amongst the western tithes in Africa. They go out under the patronage of the British and Foreign Bible Society. A most curious discovery and seizure has been made in the river. All the regalia of his Imperial Majesty Christophe I. have been seized 011 board a vessel cleared out for Hayti, as they were entered under the name of upholstery, in order to defraud the revenue of the duties that would have been payable on gold lace and jewellery, & c. The robes of state, the gala suits, and all the grand ensigns of royally were de- tected, made up in very common packages; and suspicions are entertained that they shall also find the imperial crown itself concealed in the ship. His Imperial Majesty will, no doubt, be indignant that an attempt should thus he made to defraud his Royal Brother Sovereign of his just duties. And which of his ambassadors here have been guilty of the trick we know not. Unless the Treasury, however, give an order for the release of the regalia, the Emperor's coronation must be postponed. The borough of Aldborough, Suffolk, is said to be in danger of losing its corporate rights, in consequence of a neglect in not swearing in the new bai'iffs and justices 011 the day appointed by charter and ancient usage. Parties run high in the borough, and West minster- hall is likely to benefit by the contention. Captain Thomas Dundas, of the Royal Navy, lias invented a new description of inflammable balls, appli- cable for besieging a town, and peculiar for its small weight, by which means it may he thrown lo a great distance, and takes fire on a very curious plan. It spreads a flame in three distinct openings, which is so strong that the fire extends a full yard in length from the ball itself; andjs so powerful, that any thing under, over, or near, cannot escape its effects. The Strand Bridge, the foundation- stone of which was laid 011 Friday, the 11th instant, when completed, will be the largest in the world. It will consist of nine arches, all of equal size, and 120 feet span each, and of a beautiful elliptical form, which will prove a great ornament to the metropolis. A court martial assembled onboard the Gladiator, at Portsmouth, 011 the 25th instant, for the trial of Capt. Barrie, officers, and crew, of his Majesty's late ship the, Pomone, which was lost in attempting to come through the Needles. The court acquitted Captain Barrie, officers, and crew, except the master, who was ordered to be reprimanded. The Buenos Ayres Gazette of the 8th of August, contains a report from Don Jose Rondsea, detailing the result ot an attempt made by the garrison of Monte Video, to destroy an advanced battery, on the 22d of July. It appears lhat a party of 350 men made a s^ lly from the garrison, to destroy a battery which greatly annoyed tiic place, at the same time that the battery was attacked by a gun- boat and nine armed launches in flank. After some firing, the MonteV'ideans, finding the troops of Buenos Ayres maintained theii ground, retired withinTheir walls. The loss of the Buenos army in this notable affair w as a horse wounded. That of the other is not stated, but it is supposed to have been considerable, as the launches were much da- 1 maged by the fire. There is as yet nothing developed respecting the two Frenchmen, who were taken out of an American ship by the Stork sloop of war, which vessel brought them to Plymouth, and on board which they now remain. We have already stated, that these persons had assisted an English nobleman lo escape from France, who had been detained there many years. This latter personage, concerning whom not a syllable was suffered to transpire, set olt for town the same evening; but how the two Frenchmen are to be dis- posed of is not known. One of them speaks very cor- rect English : he says, that having occasion to go into a banking- house at Paris, in the early part of last month, he saw a great number of English guineas, at which he expressed his sutprize; when one of the bankers assured him, that the different houses in Paris had received nearly a million of them from the pre- ceding January till that lime, September. The stale of the atmosphere has altered much within • the last few davs, prior to which the heat of the nights was such as to render the manufacture of mould candles impossible, an inconvenience which the tallow- chandlers say-, they have never before experienced at the same period of the year. Monday se'nnight, at night, a smuggling vessel, laden with 600 tubs of spirits, and a large quantity of lace, ran ashore e » the end pf the beach of Landguard Fort, which Ihey could not get off again. They then thrnw the liquor overboard, and made their escape. The soldiers in the garrison fell in with it, and four of them drank to such excess, that they are since dead. The Viper Excise culler, Capt. Morgan, has secured half the liquor, and also succeeded in getting off, and is in pursuit of the remaining part of the cargo. It seems the smugglers mistook the Harwich lights for the Orfordness lights. A custom prevails in some Of the ' departments of France, of employing men and women to tread out the juice of the grape in large tubs. A Paris Jotlrnal states, that in consequence of this pernicious practice, 96 per- sons have suddenly died while thus employed, many of them in the same tub, the fermentation of the juice being very active, from whence the carbonic gas es- caped with fatal energy. The practice of allowing Dickies upon the bar to Thursday se'nnight four young men sailed in an oprin boat from Bristol, on a cruise in and about Kingroad, and remained at Clevedonand adjacent places till Sunday, when they prepared to return home ; but coming by the wreck ofthe Rebecca, they agreed to go 011 board her, and fastened their boat by the painter ( the sea at that time was tremendous). They had been 011 the wreck but a short time, when the violence of the waves swamped the boat, and she went to pieces; and in an instant a wave swept them away. Two sunk to rise no more ; the other two, being excellent swimmers, buffet- ed the waves for nearly an hour, when they were saved by a boat passing that way. Mr. Way, of Bridport Harbour; lately made an ex- periment on some Scotch firs. He selected three trees, and had them prepared for extracting turpentine; bv cutting a hollow six inches from the ground, and then taking the bark off for a space of about 18 inches above it. from the sappy wood. This was done in April, and the turpentine began and continued to run under very disadvantageous circumstances, such as cold and rainy weather, until October, when he collected from the three trees about 2ilb. of turpentine. Mr. Way thinks that large quantities of tar might be obtained from the knots and limbs of the Scotch fir when cut down, and that the charcoal made from it would not be injured bv the tar being first extracted. By an act of last session, no person can be arrested after the lsl of November 1811, for a debt under £ 15, unless the same is due upou a promissory note or bill of exchange. At the Norwich city sessions, Thursday se'nnight, James Pearson applied to qualify as a dissenting teacher, under the 19th of Geo. III. ch. 54.

A cure for Bigotry.— When Dr. Thomas was Chap- lain to the British Factory at Hamburgh, a gentleman belonging to the factory. being ill, was ordered into the country for the benefit of the air; accordingly he went to a village about ten miles distant, but after some time died there; upon this, application was made to tho „„..„,... ,. f Ik.

Honesty.— A very poor man, named Tuck, living in the alms- house at Penzance, found a bag, on Monday se'nnight, containing a great number of guineas, which had been lost by a rich farmer of that neighbourhood. A reward of ten of the guineas was soon proclaimed for their recovery, aud the honest fellow restored them without hesitation. Anecdote.— When Louis XIV. was playing at cards with oue of his courtiers, a dispute arose upon some point of his game. It was referred to the bye- staiiders, who were of different, opinions. The Count de Gram- mont, who was in a distant part of the room, appeared to listen to the close of the arguments. " And what thinks the Count de Grammont," said Louis, " am 1 not in the right }"—" No, Sire, you are certainly wrong."—" And how can you tell that," said Louis, " Who have but just given us any of your attention V —" Sire," replied Grammont, " I find there are different opinions upon the subject; aud if there had been a shadow of right in your Majesty's favour, could one of those worthy Gentlemen round you have failed to perceive it I" Agricultural Report for October.— The harvest in the Northern Counties, and in Scotland, though unusu- ally late, has closed favourably, from the continuance of fine weather so long after Michaelmas. Their Wheats, though not affording plump samples in ge- neral, have been injured much less by blight than those of the South. The wheat lands throughout England have worked so well for the seed, that little remains in any district to be sown. The early plants shew luxuri- antly from the late rains. The Potatoe crops are likely to prove large in produce, but those remaining in strong soils are likely to suffer if the rains continue. The Clover Seed cut late has been much injured by the wet weather; but that which came forwarder is expected to turn out well. The latter Turnips, from the rapidity and continuance of their growth, promise to become abundant, even in remote districts not much accustom- ed to the growth of green crops. The continuing growth of Grass keeps the Haymarket stationary at last month's prices. Although the Graziers complain of the present prices at Smithlield, for most kinds of meat, the Butchers take care that Ihe public shall profit but little from the cause of their discontent. We have little or no variation to note in the value of Lean Stock.— Good Draught Horses are dearer than we before re- member.

Hearing of tbe excellency of your Oil, 1 determined on trying it; in a short time my Hair began to thicken, and by using it re- gularly for « ix Months, I was enabled to leave off my Wig, and have now to boast of a fine Head of Hair, winch as tonishes every one, I shall continue the U" e of it, as it not only thickens the Hair, but I feel considerable pleasure in the. Head after using it. My daughter has received astonish- ing Benefit from using the MACASSAR On., of which let the Bearer have One Guinea Bottle.

TURN OF LIFE— TO DR. SMITH. DEAR SIR,— I think it a duty incumbent on me to lay before you and the public a most extraordinary cure ( at the turn of life) which I received from your far- famed Ploughman's Drops.— I was taken very ill, and applied to several pro- fessional gentlemen, under whose care 1 remained for more than 12 months when I was brought to death's door, and prayed every moment might be my last." I was then advis- ed to go into Shropshire to try the change of air, and to put myself under the care of a celebrated physician ; which I did, but after three month's trial I found no relief, and was reduced to the last stage of despair, when I was providentially recom- mended to your Drops, and after taking only one bottle I found I was better, for what I eat began to stop on my stomach, and by taking three more I was restored to my former health and spiiits, after nearly 18 months severe illness. I request you, iny good Di. Smith, to make this public— as I am sure it will be read with pleasure by such good matrons as may bela- bouring under complaiots similar to mine, and cadse them to thank God that there is a safe and certain cure for them I am, sir, with the graatest gratitude, youi obliged servant, Liverpool, Sept. 21, 1811.

" I LUKE CLAY, Blacksmith, of Welsh Hampton, near Elle- mere, Shropshire, do hereby certify, that ii » April, 1810, aSparkof Fire flew into my left Eye ( when at work) which gave me great Pain ; a violent Inflammation aud Humour in both Eyes followed, which disabled me from work at my trade; a Skin overspread one Eye, and deprived me of the sight of it, the other was so weak and dim that I daily feared the loss of both ; when in this deplorable state 1 was recommended to Mr. Krebs, Oculist, at Ilanmer, who- perfonned four Operations 011 my Eyes, and lias made a per- fect Cure, which I cannot in humanity to the AlHieted with- hold, as Witness my hand, LUKE CLAY, late Invalid. The truth of tbe above extraordinary Cure is perfectly well know to the following respectable Neighbours, Thomas- Phillips, John Pay, Edward White, and John Williams. October Qd, 1811. The following equally striking and ultimately successful Cure affords a convincing Proof of the Efficacy, of Mr. Krebs's Mode of Treatment: Ann, Daughter of Samuel Davies, of Marcbwiel, near Wrexham, Denbighshire, was afflicted with a severe acute Ophthalmy ill both Eves for the space of 12 Months, to so areat a degree that when she applied to Mr, Krebs, her Eyes appeared to be in too hopeless a State to permit her to expect any particular Benefit; the Opacity on the Cornea of the right Eye compleatly darkened it, the left so relaxed arid weak as to prevent her finding her way without a Guide; many Things had been tried without Relief, until sbe became a Patient to Mr. Krebs, who soon relieved her, the state of her Eyes daily improving, and in two Months the sight of both Eves was in every respect perfect; it is now two Years since, and sbe has not experienced the least Re- lapse, As Witness our Hands, SAMDSL DAVIES, ANN DAVISS, late Invalid. Mr. KREBS being fully enabled to cure all Diseases of the F'yes ( if curable) proposes to be consulted at his House in llanmer, every Monday and Wednesday ; the other Days he will be at Liberty to attend Patients at their own Houses if required. Letters, Post paid, addressed Mr. KREBS, Hanmer, near Ellesmere, attended to.
