SIR— I take the advantage of the Cambrian calling off this port with a convoy, to acquaint you, for their lordships' in- formation, that, in consequence of the Spanish General Ballasteros being pressed by a superior force of the enemy in the vicinity of San Roque, application was made to Major . General. Cooke, from the Spanish Government here, to co- operate with them, in making a diversion in bis favour, by landing a British force at Tarrifa. Major Geueral Cooke having communicated thesame to me, I directed the Stately, W'th the Columbine and Tuscan, to perform tbat service, and they sailed from hence with eight companies ofthc47th, the like number of the 87th, and a detachment of 70 rank and file of thegsth regiment, and four pieces of light artil- lery, wilh the officers, gunners, and horses attached to tlieui, in transports, under the command of Colonel Skerritt, 011 the 1 I th instant; since which tbe wind has blown constantly so strong trom the eastward, that the Spanish part of Ihe expedition have not been able lo move ; but I hail the satis- faction to receive yesterday a letter, of which the inclosed is a copy, from Captain Dickson, of the shipStately. 1 have not written so fully as I should have dune; uot wishing to delay the Cambrian, as she has French prisoners under con- voy, and that they are short of water. 1 have the honour to be, & c.

Extract of a letter from Com. Penrose to J. W. Croker, Esq, dated on board the San Juan, ot Gibraltar, Oct. 20. I have little to add for their lordships' information since my last letter by the Woolwich. The French greatest force has been 10,000, under General Godinot, drawn from a great variety of places, and only three small howitzers. A British force of 1000 infantry, and a detachment of artillery, has arrived atTarrifa, bnta strong reinforcement of Spanish troops lias been prevented from getting up to that place by the fresh easterly gales, which prevent any attempt being made to drive the enemy from his position. The inhabi- tants of Sau Roque are all under the protection of the guns of the garrison, aud those of Algeziras are retired to the island and shipping. A detachment of British troops garrison that island; a few dragoons have entered the town, but retired again directly. 1 have now four gun- boats guarding the shore ofthe bay, aud they prove of the great- tt4 use ill keeping the enemy from the coast.

The force re- quired had been raised and fitted out, and Geuera{ Abadia was employing himself iu pi touring transports for their conveyance to Cadiz; where they would I10 joined by 2,000 more, who were bound lor the same destination. The whole of the 4,0() 0 men, with a Urge quantity of ammunition and stores. Were to placed at the disposal of the Viceroy of Mexico; Gen, Vanegas. Just before the Spanish fiigates sailed, information had been received; that after a desperate conflict be- tween a strong Guerilla parly, and a powerful de;- tacbment oi the enemy, near Palenciii, the former had been victorious, anil had made BOO prisoners. The accounts from the British army are to tbd gOth, which, though ( our days subsequent to t. he date of Lord Wellington's dispatches, are, however, not later than those received by the Lisbon mail; of course the Coru. nna accounts bring no news from the theatre of war. The Cambrian, recently arrived at Portsmouth from the Mediterranean, wa, s yesterday released from quaran- tine. It was only yesterday we anuounced the capturs ofthe city of Valencia, in South America, bv Miranda. The city of Valencia, in Spain, is also an object of as much importance to the inhabitants of the Old World, as ils namesake has recently been to the New, Bv the Cambrian we have letters from that Capital to the 12tb, and from Alicant to the 15th last. The intelligence from that quarter is, on the whole, of a favourable description ; and if confidence could give security, Valencia might be considered safe, since the general opinion expressed in all the letters is, that the enemy will ultimately fail in attempting its subjugation. It is reported that Government have lately received accounts respecting the enemy's force in the Scheldt, hy which it appears [ hat the fleet in that river is in a very forward state of preparation. The number of seamen which Bonaparte has collected by his maritime conscriptions in Holland and the Hanse Towns; aud wh; qh have been transferred to him by the Court qf Denmark, may perhaps now he sufficient to enable biin to send his ships to sea, though crews thus composed cannot be very manageable, either in navigating or fighting the vessels on board which they are compelled to serve. This, however, is the season, in which the execution of any plan the enemy may have formed, is likely to be attempted ; and, though former reports of movements in the Scheldt fleet have had 110 result, it would not be prudent, on that account, to disregard Ihe present. It is said, indeed, that orders have been issued lo reinforce our blockading squadron, and that all the officers belonging to the ships destined to join it, who had been permitted to go 011 shore, have dircc » tions to sleep on board. A gentleman who has just reached London, and who left Slaten Island, New York, on the 9th nit. says, it is by no means a general opinion that an embargo will be imposed at the meeting of Congress; aud thai, 011 the contrary, it. was asserted by some individuals who had much weight, that all restrictions upon trade would be removed. A war between Great Britain and the Uuited States was thought to be the last measure that would be resorted to. The Commissioners for liquidating Ihe national debt began yesterday to buy £ T6\< 60 16s. lOd. and will do this every transfer day Ibis quarter, in the purchase of consols or reduced, which, at the present price, will he about £ 117,000. per day. A letter from Gottenburgli, of the 29th, slates, that two French frigates are cruizing near Stralsund, and captured a packet bound lo that port. The letters had been sent to Hamburgh, to be examined, and a con- siderable uneasiness was felt lest their contents should prove injurious to some of the inhabitants of that city, A second packet had also been taken, but, as 110 letters were found in her, she was liberated. It is mo less singular than true, that the article of colonial produce, sugar, the want of which is now felt as the severest privation throughout the Continent of Europe, was scarcely known amongst us three hundred years ago. Sugar was first brought into Europe from Asia, in 1150, and at that time an attempt was made to cultivate it in Italy, but it totally failed : the Portuguese and Spaniards, however, in the adventurous spirit of colonization which hrst distinguished them, carried the J caue- root into America, in 1510, which succeeded to the i lull extent of their hopes, au 1 thence it was soon I rails- ! planted to the West India isles, where ils luxurious pro' duce extended itself with such rapidity as soon to be- come that object of national strife and warfare, which now assume the terrifying features of the most sanguin- ary perpetuity. After the business of the Society for the Encourage- ment of Arts, Manufactures and Conmerce was finish- ed, the President, his Grace the Duke of Norfolk, in- spected the Model Room, for tin? first time since tho alterations have been made, and expressed great satis- faction in the arrangement that had been adapted. I he Duke also inspected the paper containing the subscrip- tions which had been raised for the completion of this important measure, and no doubt intends to grace it with his munificence. As the head of this national and praise- worthy association, his lordship cannot better ex- tend his bounty, than by contributing to further the object now in view. LONDON. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER,! 8. The King— An express was received stcrday luofsi: Windsor, slating, That his Majesty - ad a restless night, and appeared extremely weak, and ihe depres- sion of hrs spirits- eontinued.' • 1 he account of'the French', tvhopmsued Ballasteros' will he continued hi power. ,1..... i, i. i... i /• . ii . • . . U.... J An evnrp. e rpivivwl vest either the change of measures or tlie change of persons conducting the affairs of state. The decision on the subject, it is said, was postponed in consequence ofthe necessity Of the attendance of his lloyal Highness at aft. earii Hour at Windsor. There is gteat reason to believe that Marquis Welleslev's services are particularly ac- ceptable to the prince, nnd that whatever variation may take place, either in men or measures, the Marquis to Gibraltar, having brokcif up fro i. their pnsitioii at • St,: Roque, is continued, aud it is said that Guidinot has marched 8 to Tarrifa, where some English from Cadiz lately disembarked. A Spanish lorce was expected at the same. pbint fioin Cadiz, but, according to the last accounts, tiie' tra'hspdrts had been prevented from reach- ing their destination by contrary winds. Relative to the ' present distracted and unhappy state of Sicily, the following cbntmunication will be found to contain some interesting particulars: ' " Every t hing is here in confusion The troofis, Neapo- litan and French, exceed l6, buo, enlisted ina gj- eat. degree froiu the prisoners taken in dillerent places; on these the Queen depends; about 5000 are probably attached to her. The Sicilians to a man are with ns. A proportion of the revenue of every ecclesiastical establishment, lias been taken possession of by the King. The impositions upon trade have been ex- tremely arbitrary, and Contrary to law. 1 he peasantry are distressed beyond conception, by the regulations respecting ' the trade in grain. The nobility are warmly attached to the English, they expecting from ihe same assistance to pre- serve the freedom of their Constitution. The army are tive ' mouths hi arrears, consequently every branch of the country is in a state of dissatisfaction. The Neapolitans about the Court rule every thing, particularly the Duke of Ascoli ; people consider them as ' foreigners, and detest th'em as such. The arrested Barons remain in the, same stale of severe eon fmement. The Health of PrinCe Bclmonte is such as to render it probable that he will not survive the severities under which he labours in ( lie prison of the Island of Favignana ; the Court seem to take a pleasure in his suf- ferings Admiral Ficeinautlc is very popular here ; and we have reason to believe that General Maitland will watch Over the interests of the English until Lord William Ben- tiirck returns. Every thing is at a stand until his lordship's arrival ; and We know not whether there is more anxiety on those subjects in the breasts of the English, the Sicilians, or the Queen, although upon different grounds. The con- duct of the Queen is as uncertain as ever, depending on the effect ofthe large quantity of opium which she is daily under the necessity of taking. General Maitland has 18,000 lire- locks undei his command ; and there is no expectation of an immediate attack from the opposite coast; indeed the season is now too far advanced." A letter from an officer of high rank in Lord Welling- ton's army si s: " Marmont certainly intended to attack us on tbe 27th of September, but Lord Wellington, by taking up another position, frustrated his plan. Lord Wellington had a nar- row escape 011 the 25th— whilebusily employed in recommit ring the • enemy's movements, some French dragoons got completely 111 his rear, and would have taken his lordship, had not Major Gordon galloped up, and informed him of the circumstance, and he was indebted to the speed of his liorse for his escape. Loid Charles Manners was also closely pursued, and was obliged to have recourse to leap- ing a large rivulet." Cleaning.— At the Norwich City Sessions, held 011 the 13th lilt before tbe Mayor and Sheriffs, Mary Adams was in- dicted for gleaning wheat oil' Ihe land of Mi. J. Martin, of Ai- tniiigball, at an improper time, viz. before the whole of the crop was severed, and against the declared will of the proprietor. The Chairman slated to the Jury, that the pri- soner, at the time she offended, was acting in pursuance ofa supposed right, and that by the laws of England this was not indictable as a criminal offence. A11 idea had gone abroad, lhat by immemorial sufferance tbe people had a righl of gleaning, although without the owner's consent. The opposite doctrine had however been established, under the highest aulhority. The farmers were, ill such eases, entitled to an action of trespass; and if the gleaners coil- ducted themselves in a tumultuous manner, they were in- dictable for a riot, but not for felony. Mr. Joddrell, Mr. Blofeld, and Mr. Plumptre, severally expressed their con- currence iu the Chairman's sentiments, and the Jury, after ' some hesitation, acquitted the prisoner, who was severely reprimanded by Ihe Court. Yesterday, Osborne Marl; he. in mid Thomas Le Blanc, Esqs. came into Court and resigned the place and office of c hief Clerk of the Court of King's Bench, which was held hv tiiem in trust for Osborne Markham, Esq and tlie Hon. Edward Law.— Immediately after tbe aforesaid resignation had taken place, the patent appointing tbe Hon. Edward Law and Osborne Markham, hsrt. to the said Office, was handed to the Master tiv the Lord Chief Justice, and the said last mentioned gentlemen being introduced into Court by the proper officers, the patent so appoining tlieni was read, granting them Ihe said place for and during then- natural lives. The usual oaths being then administered to them, lliey severally took their seats below the Judges, be- tween the two masters, when his lordship capped tliein both. No fewci then ten females were yesterday convicted at Ihe Old Bailey, of stealing publicans'pewter pots. This offence has lately'been extended to an alarming degree, as it was sworn that tbe publicans in the parish of Marylehone alone lost pots to the value of i'tiooo annually. FROM THE LONDON GAZETTE.

Admiralty Office, November 9. Extract of a letter from Copt. Sir George R. Collier, of his Majesty's ship the Surveillanle, addressed to Ad- miral Sir Charles Cotton, Bart, transmitted by Ihe latter to John Wilson Croker, Esq. His Majesty's ship Surveillante, at anchor in Bermeo Roads, SIR, October 20, 1811. 1 proceeded off Ancliove on the 18th instant, where I was joined bv 200 guerillas, under tbe command of their chief, Pastor, by whose exertion, in conjunction wiih tuy pilot Ignaeio de Yharrarae, a sufficient number of fishing boats were impressed to receive an equal number of guerillas, I had previously embarked from the coast. Soon afterwards the Iris joined to leeward, when the whole party, accom- panied by the marines of the two frigates ( under Ihe com- mand of I . ieuteuant Clippies) pushed oft for the river Mun- daca, where a landing was ent'cted about ti'- o miles from Berineo, the object of our attack. The French guard, stationed iu Ihe town of Muuilaca, evacuated it immedi- ately The frigates advancing with a light breeze towatds the town of Be. rnleo, while the'party which liad landed ap- peared iu the hilts turning the enemy's right, gave him but little time to hesitate, and Monsieur Dedier, the command- ant, took the short, though rugged road, over the mountains for llilhoa The next morning at day- break. Mr Kingdom, master's mate, was dispatched to blow up the guard- house and destroy tbe signal- station on the heights of Machichaco, whic h service he exec nled perfectly Iu the course of ihe day every thing that could be ascertained to be public property belonging to the French, was either brought off or destroy ed, tlie guard- house, store house, and stabling on the lull blown up and burnt, and its battery, consisting of four 18- pounders, destroyed and the guns broken, the gunpowder given to Pastor, and shot thrown into the sea ; two other sni. ill batteries, commanding the high road and mole head sharing the same fate, The utmost possible annoyance having been given to the enemy, and all llie vessels brought • out from the mole, the marines and guerillas were re- em- barked ; aud ibis morning I dispatched the latter, under prtueclion of the Iris, to land at a spot agreed upon with Pastor, remaining here myself until I have adjusted the claims of several SpaniaVds respecting their vessles I have the satisfaction to state, that yesterday a small division of 5 i men, dispatched fromJBilboa to succour the garrison, approached the town, and were met hy the advanced guerilla guard, of trifling numerical superiority, aud im- mediately put to flight; some few of the enemy were killed, though only oue prisoner was brought in, who owes his life to having fallen into the hands of a guerilla recruit. I have ' only to add, that the most peifect cordiality prevailed among our men and the Spaniards; that no loss whatever was sustained bv us ; aud that the steady conduc t of Lieut. Cunples, the officers, and royal marines, would have decid- ed Ihe business of the day, had the enemy given them the meeting ; and I feel. considerable obligation lo my first lieu- tenant O'Reilly, aud the officers and crews of both ships. 1 have the honour lo be & c GEORGE COLLIER, Caplain. The Gazette also contains an order iii council for the prorogation of Parliament till Tuesday the 7111 of January next, then to meet " for the dispatch ot divers tjrgunt and important affairs :" and an order of the Lord Chamberlain for a court mourning on account of the death of Prince George of Brunswick, his Majesty's ucwpliew. ' SATURDAY, NOVEMBER. 9 It is reported that one of the subjects of deliberation in llie council held yesterday, at which the Prince Re- gent presided, was a change, Or more properly au interchange with respect to the Ministry, not involving An express received yesterday from Windsor stated, lhat his Majesty had some sleep during the night, and- appeared much refreshed this morning. Advices from Carraccos to the 27th of August, are come to hand. Among them is a d spatch from the Su- perior Junta of Santafie, exhibiting their determination to support the revolutionary cause, and giving the most substantial proof of it by the transmission of a large sum of money. The Ariadne, which hasTeached an Irish port from America, lias brought sorrie letters to mercantile houses which are come to hand. They contain, it is said large orders for British manufactures, to be ready for shipment by file lst of January. They are given hy houses of the fust respectability, who seem to think that by that period the restrictions on trade will be removed. By a vessel which left Malaga on the 16lh ult. accounts ' liave been received that, contrary to what has been represented, the Polish garrison of 1100 men still re- mained within the walls, snd the city was left to the guard of 400 Juramentades. This circumstance in- volves in doubt what isalledged of the shipment ofa detachment of the army of Ballasteros, to proceed in an eastern direction, where, we were told, thfc French force was considerably diminished'. The Ariadne has arrived from North America in twenty- three days. The public papers brought by her have not yet leached town. The following is an extract of a private letter from Philadelphia :—" Each party appear to have taken a stand from which they will not swerve} but we trust an opfcn rupture will be averledy by the continued forbearance of one or the other.— Our trade is nearly annihilated— the carrying branch seems to be at an end. The Non- iiiiporlation Act subjects us to great inconvenience; but the longer it exists the more shall we learn, and be enabled to do without you — the increase of our manufactures is truly astonishing; and tbe introduction of Spanish sheep is of incalculable advantage to this country." Corant, an Italian author, states, as a fact, that the present King of Sicily had so little attention paid to his education, as to have been unable lo write or read until after his marriage ; and asserts, that the Queen actually undertook the part ofhis school- mistress. This account is confirmed by our countryman Dr Moore, and in some mcas • e explains the circumstance of Her Majesty being the principal organ of the Sicilian Government. II the great Nelson were now alive, what indignation would he feel at the present conduct of the Royal Family of Sicily. The Lord Mayor.— Yesterday, according to custom on St. Simon and St. J ude's day, the Lord May or elect was sworn at Guildhall. The old and new Chiel Magistrates proceeded to the hustings wilh all theirstatc appendages, and the Lord Mayor elect took the old Lord Mayor's seat. The Chamberlain then presented him the keys of the Common Seal, and the Seal of the Office of Lord Mayor. The Sword and Sceptre were also de- livered, and after receiving the congratulations of the Livery, the ceremony ended, and the Civic Body went to dinner.— This he ng Lord Mayor's day, the Lord Mayor and the Corporation of the City of London appeared in their greatest state; a . d proceeded lo West minster, where the new Lord Mayor was sworn before the Barons. Having been presented to the Judges i in the other Courts, the Civic Body returned to dinner at Guildhall; where the preparations for the festival exceeded ail lhat has been done for many years past. On Thursday night, about a quarter before nine o'clock, a splendid meteor illuminated the visible hori- zon of the metropolis, it appeared above the loose clouds, through which Jupiter was scarcely perceptible, and passed over ail amplitude of about 60 degrees in the third of a minute. Its greatest altitude, when first distinguished, was about 18 or 20 degrees; and it dis- appeared in the N. N. E. part of Ihe horizon. Its dia- meter was about the sixth of a degree ; its mass com- pact, its light dense, and the colour on the ground and among the clouds was blue, such as is produced by the combustion of Roman candles. this bu'rfding is- decorated at each corner with four large eagles of stolie connected together in a square, ou whose head is placed a gilt, imperial crown.— These eagles are similar to those Bonaparte has adopted for his coat of arms; they were- givete to the town of Amsterdam in llie year ] 48s, by the Emperor Maximilian."

HBostscript /. ONDON, Monday Night, November 11, 1811, The following Bulletin was yesterday exhibited at St. James's:— Windsor Castle, Nov. 9. " His Majesty continues nearly iu the same slate." An express was received this day from Windsor, at York House, stating " That his Majesty had a restless night, and appealed much debilitated this morning." Tlieie are fresh letters to day from the French coast io the 5th instant. They are tbe first we have seen from that quarter which support the idea of a war between Fiance and Russia ; and it is the more extraordinary tbat such au opinion should be so strongly asserted at this juncture, when the best informed people from Sweden maintain that there is noehanceof a rupture for sometime to come.— Whenever such an event happens, however, hostilities will lie commenced by France ; and Russia is determined to do nothing to provoke them, unless that she will continue to trade in order to support the Slate — If France has made any new determination to prevent commerce with Russia, it is upon this that the writers from the French coast ground this opinion of a war. All the explanation they give is, that they do not make the statement without tolerable authority. The following is a copy of a letter come to hand to- day from Frankfort, dated 12th of October:—" Most of Ihe troops belonging to the Confederation uf the Rhine, in- cluding those of Hesse Cassel which have been taken into the pay of France, consisting together of between tio and 70, ooo men, have received orders to inarch, and they were to assemble at Mentz Their ulterior destination has hitherto been kept a secret; but it is strongly surmised that they will proceed to reinforce the armies in . Spain.— There is something passing between the Courts of Berlin and Paris : the other day General Blucher arrived hereon his way to the French capital.—' Flic last fair iu this town has been llie most flourishing for many years. Colonial produce fetched high prices; and the best coffee froro 7s. to 8s. per lb. This is owing to the numerous attendance of merchants from all parts of Europe except England.— We hear no more of a war between France and Russia, and, therefore, we are induced to believe the troops in motion will be sent toSpain." The United Slates frigate Constitution, which conveyed George Barlow, Esq. from America to France, to replace General Armstrong as Ambassador from the United States, is in- rived at Portsmouth. The time of her departure ti- om Chcibourgh, from which port she sailed, is not ascertained, but she has on board Mr. Russell, who is appointed tl. e successor of Mr. Pinekney, and is, we believe, the most recent arrival from France The letters by the Lightning sloop of war arrived at Portsmouth from the river Plate, are expected lo be de- livered to- morrow— By a letter from a passenger on board we learn, that opto the Uth of September, at which tune the sloop sailed, Monte Video had not fallen, nor M ns there any immediate prospect of such an event. The Nereus frigate had sailed from the River Plate to the Braziis, pre- vious lo the sloop coming away, but we do not learn what progress had been in the negoeiation between Ihe contend- ing parties, wliieh by former accounts were carrying 011 through the medium of Captain I ley Wood, we are inclined to believe that nothing conclusive would take place until tbe arrival in the Itiver Plate of Admiral De Courcy, who sailed from the Brazils about the latter end of August, aud in all prOpnbility reached his destination about the time when the oiereus left. A vessel is arrived in 7 days from Bilboa, The letters by this conveyauc e have not yet reached town, but a commu- nication from on board the vessel states that the place was left in the most wretched state at their departure. Messrs. Claike and Gallegos, two Lieut.- Colonels in the Spanish service, and Aides de Camps to Gen. Ballesteros, are arrived iu town 011 a mission to tiie British government, and it is supposed Iheii' object is to make application for clothing and el her necessaries for the brave army under the above General; which we ere sorry to say, is destitute of every requisite to enable it to keep the field.

Orthography.— The following curious note was a few days ago actually put into the hands of the bell- ! man of Whitchurch, hy a neighbouring farmer :— " In Trudemeht Dun By Sumboddey 011 the Libbertey of Richd for savi- Cl Times for pulling Hie Curt Hon I e and flindgingitovei- twiesand pulling llie Linpili Houte and Having the Gate of the Hooks and one time Naling the Hasp hup and flipdg a Dure of the Hinges and an I ring and taking the millkihg frock an Sntc and Crasper and tlinilg In 10 Midding plase ot" Warier tl. eire the Ly and Half a Ginney Reward that Iheafander Might Be found lloute."

A person in Ihe act of crossing a foot bridge over a brook near Me'verley, a few days ago, which was covered with water, mistook the direction of the plank, and falling in, yvas unfortu- nately drowned. At the first Meeting of the Committee for the establishment of a Lancastrian School, held 011 Thurs- day last, it was resolved to erect a school sufficiently spacious for the instruction of 500 scholars, and that the money necessary for defraying the expense, be raised by way of annuity in shares of £ 10 each, no person being allowed to subscribe for more than five shares — The subscriber to receive 7 j per cent, for his money during the term of his own life, or of any other life he may chttse to name, from the Commiltee appointed to superintend the concerns of the school. 011 the extinction of the life then named the interest to cease ; so thnl in process of time the whole property wid be vested in the Committee.— Nearly all the shares requisite w ould have been engaged immediately, hut it was thought proper that the friends of the institution, not then present, should have the opportunity of becoming subscribers. On Wednesday last, Mary Jones was detected by tbe vigilance of Mr. Hayward, the Clerk of our Markef, in the act of regratiug potatoes, and we understand she will be indicted for the offence.

On Monday last a very respectable meeting of friends and subscribers to the British and Foreign Bible Society, was held here, according to advertisement, when it was determined that ati Auxiliary Societv should be imme- diately formed, as the most effectual method of pro- moting the object of that excellent institution.— We hope to favour our readers With particulars iu a future paper. Distillation of Grain.— Tin- High Bailiff of Birming- ham, in consequence of a most respectable requisition, has convened a meeting oti Friday next, lo consider of tiie propriety of presenting a petition, to the Prince Regent, praying him to suspend the distillation of spirits from grain, Similar meetings have b; wi held al Glasgow, Liverpool, aud olher places, aiid petitions egreed upon. We feel pleasure in recording the activc exertions of the several Associations for tho preservation of the Se- vern Fisheries, and it gives 11s still greater pleasure to state lhat the Duke of Keaufort has intimated, that he, through the medium of his agents, will direct the evils, if any exist in liis Fisheries in the Usk and Wye, to be directly removed. Conduct like this, in so dignified a character, deserves the meed of praise, and reflects Ihe highest credit on his Grace. Some parliamentary manoeuvring is already going forward against the opening'of the Sessions. It is ru- moured that some material differences have been agi- tated betwixt some of the Royal family and the ministry. They arc said to have originated on religious topics, concerning the systems of Dr. Boll & Mr. Lancaster. The different branches of the Royal family have advocated the latter ; and ministers Hie former. The subject is expected to come before the House. I11 consequence of the issuing silver tokens, in various towns, by individuals ill their own names, to serve as change, it is said to be the intention of Government to bring a bill into Parliament to put a stop to Ibis practice, or to compel the issuers to make their tokens of the Standard value of silver— The loss to Ihe public 011 this kind of issue might be very serious, as the pieces are in general fir below the standard of value which is nomi- nally given to them. A most alarming fire hroke out at Andover, on Tuesday evening, occasioned by the fall of a squib or a rocket 011 a barn. At ten o'clock several buildings were entirely burnt down, and the flames raging wilh violence in eight or ten more. The extreme exertions of the inhabitants seemed at that time to produce but little effect towards its extinguishment, and we fear its extent will he found to be very great. The foolish and dangerous practice of suffering fire- works to be thrown about in the streets on the 5ih of November, cannot be too much reprobated. Local Militia.— We have taken considerable pains to ascertain whether there is ally foundation for the report which has been so prevalent that the Local M ili- tia is very shortly to be embodied. From the inform- ation we have received, we call venture to state, with a considerable degree of confidence, that Government has at present 110 such intention.— Staffordshire Adv. Sherwood, the Guard of Ihe Gloucester and Hereford Mail Coach, and also the Coachman, have been dis- missed Ihe service, by order of the Inspector of Mail Coaches, for behaving in a very abusive manner to a lady and another female passenger. By the Act which passed on the 15th June last, Hat Licences, as well as Hat Stamps, are repealed ; and ] the Duty upon Hat Linings unsold may be allowed for at the Stamp- Office in each county, if claimed before the 5th of December next, provided the dealers had hat licences in force on the 5t! i July. Lord Sheffield has framed some excellent rules and regulations for the government of the new poor- house of the parish of Fletching, Sussex, and prefaced them will', observations that merit the attention ofthe inha- biting of other districts. His Lordship, iu the fourth paragraph of his observations, most emphatically slates, that " undisfinguishthg benevolence offers a premium to indolence, prodigality, and vice. Unthinking pity rashly stops that natural course of things, by which want leads lo labour, labour to comfort, Ihe knowledge of comfort lo industry, aud lo all those virtues, by which the multitude so incalculably add to the strength and happiness of a country i and whilst it neglects that respectable poverty which shrinks from public sight, it encourages, by profuse and indiscriminate charity, all those abominable arls, which make beggary and parish relief a better trade than labour : these principles can never be too deeply impressed upon the mind." Assault and ttobbery.— A young woman, who was returning on Saturday from Burslem, in the comity of Stafford, to Stoke Lacy, in Herefordshire, yvas over- taken about tive miles from Wolverhampton; on the Stafford road, by three men, who, after inquiring where she was going, and treating her with great civility, per- suaded her to leave the high road for a nearer one by which they promised to take her. She imprudently yielded to their advice, and they conducted her to an unfrequented place, where they seized her by the th roat, with dreadful imprecations demanded her money, threw her upon the ground, and took 4s. 9d. in silver; and stripping her of her clothes, left her completely naked. In this pitiable state, she crept into the shed of a neighbouring farm house, and, covering herself, with what straw she could find, remained during a cold and tempestuous uight until morning, when she was dis- covered by some ofthe servants nearly exhausted. The House of Mr. J. Brown, grocer, of the High Green, Wolverhampton, was broken into 011 Friday se'nnight, and about £ 10 in cash, aud three one pound notes, slolen thereout.— Same night, the warehouse of Mr. Briscoe, merchant, also of that town, was robbed of upwards of £ 70, chiefly in guinea notes of the bank of Mr, S. Jennins, of Wellington.— D. Fisher has been h as Bell committed to Stafford county gaol for Ihe former rob- bery. A regular vein of silver has been found on the Cor- nish side of the river Tamar. Though small quantities of this precious metal have frequently been got. in cross veins, in the mines of Cornwall, yet no regular silver lode as ever before been met with. This vein was tra- ced from the surface and is now regularly worked, though it is only within a very short lime lhat enough of tho metal has been got to render it worthy of observa- tion. Unstamped Almanacks— Oil the Slst ult. a man was convicted before tiie magistrates at Manchester, of sell- ing almanacks commonly called " Poor Ilobin," and imprisoned for one month : and on Monday a woman was convicted of a similar offence, but in consideration of a numerous family of children, was only imprisoned 7 days.— The person apprehending offenders of this description is entiled lo a reward of 20s. lo be paid by the Receiver General of the Stamp Duties. A machine lias lately been erected at Mr. A. Perry's brewery, in Bath, with tiie intent of working two pumps, grinding malt, and other purposes, by the power of a single horse!— The spacc it occupies is lillle more than the length and width of the animal; who acts by his gravity and draught combined, producing considerable effect wilh great ease : not being Constrained to travel on a circle, but acliug constantly on a straight line. The most valuable animal may be used for the purpose without injury.— The machine is considered a great improvement in mechanism. MARKET HERALD.

SIR— A" writer in the last Shrewsbury Chronicle, 01 -' r the signature of LA sous, has made some observations upon the Lancastrian . plan of Education, which cannot be allowed to pass unnoticed by the friends of that plan in thin town. For tho' he has announced his intention of disregarding the strictures of any opponent, bis mis.- statement of facts and erroneous reasoning n. ust not, fee that reason, remain uncontradicted and unrefutcd. It is not true, us asserted by Loicns, that Mr. Lancaster attempted by ifick, or iii auy other way, to rob Dr. of the merit of introducing, into this' couutry the Madras System of Edi- rition. Mr. Lam- aster Iris " distinctly and repeatedly acknowledged his obligations to Dr. Belt'; but having greatly enlarged and, ( improved the system introduced by the Doctor, he very pioperly claims the honour of his ow n discoveries He dees r « t wish to Strip bis rival's brows of the wreath he lias acquired: he only objects to have that wreath adorned with anv sprigs plucked from his own. But whatever be the comparative merit of Hie two plans — to . whichever belongs Ihe glory of tl. e principal dis- coveries— the point which occasions auy coiitiovciisy in this town is totally distinct from the method of instruction purs'..^ d by either of these gentlemen. We do not differ abi - ut tbe Maimer 111 which instruction shaft be coui- muuicated— we differ about the substance, or thti- 4hihg which is lo be communicated. We ran agree very well about sand mid slates, and monitors, and classes, and the whole discipline of the school. We can also agree respect- ing certain branches of instruction, as reading, writing arithmetic, and the use of the bible. So far we, could manage to go all together Very well. Nor should w « have any difficulty in giving the preference lo whichever of these plans is best calculated lo convey instruction . But, in conjunction with the above mentioned branches of knowledge, the friends of Dh Bell leach the Catechism of the Chinch nf England. And the advocates of Dr. Bell's system ni- e chiefly distinguished from the Lancastrians by their rigid adherence lo this one point— tlicy will have all their scholars fashioned into members of the Establishment This is the great stumbling- block in the way of unanimity • for the Dissenters cannot consistently allow this; and upon no other terms will nutneiOCs individuals attached to the Church co- operate with them in thbgieat work of Education This I tuke to he the state of the question. Now let ua see what iight is thrown upon it by Lait us Ac cording to his ideas, to teach children the bible is 10 teach tWm no religion at all ; and he quotes largely from Dr Marsh, vi ho is of'opinion that those who are instinct ed, ns ro religion, in the bible only, w ill never become united lo the Church of England. Surely these gentlemen are rather queer friends of the Establishment^ who represent its doctrttlear as so little consonant to the doctrines taught 111 the sacred scriptures, that those who study tl. e latter iii their youth will never embrace the former ' in their riper yctrCsr - The words of Laicus are these: " The effect of schools e, n tlie plan of Mr. Lancaster may not perchance be to give us sectaries, but to extinguish all religion whatever, except what is termed natural religion." So that the constant reading of the bible, I he daily impression upon the youthful mind of the revealed will of God, as exhibited 111 the Jewish and Christian Scriptures, will extinguish all religion what- ever, except what is termed natural I An extraordinary effect this from such a cause ! and just as probable as the production of ice by the most intense b< at. Laicus continues " thus, '< Send a hoy to school, desire ki4 master nevei to mention the name of God or the Saviour to him, and then afterwards, at twenty years of age, desire him to chuse his religion : he would know nothing of any." This is very likely. But what school does Loicits refer to?— not the Lancastrian, where the holy riiptures are daily read, and w here consequently a bov must bear some- thing mote than the names of God and the Saviour This observation of Laicus is about as much to tbe purpose as if I were to say, Send a boy to one of onr public schools, and desire the master never to mcution to him the Declensions, the Conjugations, Qtice Genus, Syntax, or Prosody, and then afterwards, at twenty vcais of ace, ask him to parse or scan a line in Ovid. He would know nothing about it. — I should wonder if he did. « • Religion," says Laicns, " is not the simple thing which these foolish men woulif make it." Foolish men, trulv— to expect a crop without sowing the seed. But it is difficult to guess what foolish men Laicus alludes to, unless he has lately been 011 a visit to Gotham. There is nothing in these remarks of his which has any applicability to the important plan of education which at present interests so large a portion of the inhabit- ants of this town. Having admitted the education of the poor to lie an unmixed good, I. aiCUs inquires by whom and upon what principles it is lo be conducted. His answer is curious: " As the nation undertakes the work ofcducation, it should look to its own immediate interest and purposes. Tho education should have the interest ar. d maintenance of ihe State for its object. But the State, according to our happy Constitution, consists of two principles, tiie CH il Establish- ment and the Church Establishment. The true end of education, therefore, should be to make the poor good citizens, that is to say, worthy members of the Church and State." What tail all this mean ? Does any one doubt that the true end of education is to make the poor good citizens? or does Laicns mean to insinuate that tbe Lancastrian system has 110 tendency lo this end ? He will- not venture snrh an insinuation. Yet be tells rt, il at by " good citizens" he means " worthy members of the Church and State." Now this ambiguous expression, ( resulting from his confused definition of tlie Slaie. which lie says is composed of the Church and itself); eill. fr implies that tin > se who are not members of the Church are not good citizens— or it does not help I he argument Either the Dissenters are not good citizens— are not any part of " the Stale, whose inlenst and maintenance are the object of education," or Laicus has piesented us with a string of truisms, w hich, like the proverbs of Saucho Pania*, have no bearing upon the matter in hand. But ns Laicus speaks well of Ihe Dissenters in another passage, l e cannot menu to assert 11 at they are not good citizens. Tlic task then remains for him to shew, how, by suppoiting Lancastrian Schools, " the nation will not look to its Own interest and support;" hon, it wiH not " have for its object the interest, and maintenance of the State;" nnd hole, by so doing, it will 1 wt " make the poor good citizens, that is to say, worthy members of the Church and State." There are otber parts of Laicus's letter very open to remark, such as bis ascribing " lo malignant intention and perverse wickedness" tbe plan of national education adopted in France, because ." it moulds tlie man to their owir liking:" while the drift of his own observations is to ICJ commend the very same thing to be done here. But the point of chief moment with us is vet to be considered . Ought the members of tbe Church of England, the clergy especially, lo co- operate wilh ihe Dissenters in tin? same plan of educating the poor? I bis iuquiry is much too exiensive to he dispatched in a few sentences. But I hope the plan to be adopted in tbe proposed School will render it worthy of the Support of all the friends lo Christianity* whether Cbvrclimeuor Dissenters I am, Sir, your's, & c.

A1 REPORT OF THE INUNDATION COMMITTEE. The Committee for affording Relief to Ihe Sufferers by the Inundation from the Stiper Stones, in June last, have the Satisfaction to announce to the humane Contributors for this Purpose, the Completion of their Labours. With the most heartfelt Pleasure, they are enabled to state ihat, widely extended as was the Calamity, the Bene- volence of the Public has been still more extensive ; and that, notwithstanding tbe Demands on the Liberality of the Country from the Subscriptions for the distressed Portu- guese and tlie British Prisoners in France, which Were proceeding at the same Time, the Number of Subscribers is double that of the Sufferers, aud the Sum contributed so libera! as to leave a Surplus of J5I4. 14s. The Committee have prepared a List of the Contributors and Sufferers, with tbe Sums awarded to each They have endeavoured to be as accurate as possible, but hope for Indulgence fur any accidental Omission. They beg to observe that every Case was diligently enquired into, and Relief afforded according to tbe Exigencies of the Circum- stance, in some Instances to Ihe whole Amount, in others to two Thirds or one Half of Ihe Loss. Ill general the Sufferers had Families, frequently large ones, dependent on them. And when the present Price of the chief Articles of Life is considered, it cannot but afford a consoling Reflection to the Contributors to this Charity, that they have administered Relief to nearly two hundred Families, most of whom had lost the Hopes of Winter Provision, as their Gardens and Crops of Potatoes and Winter Produce hail been swept away. The Committee, except in two Cases of very small Farms, with very peculiar Circumstances of Distress, have strictly adhered to their original Plan of confining Relief to Labourers, Artificers, and Tradesmen of small Capital; and Ihey teed bound in Justice to the Persons relieved to state that they have found their Claims in almost every Instance to be fair and reasonable, without any Wish to 1 exaggerate or impose ; and that the Relief has been most gratefully acknowledged and properly employed by them. The Committee have great Pleasure in particularising two Instances of Courage and Humanity, attended with great personal Risk and Exertion: one of William Evans, of Miusterley, a Labourer, who by swimming his Horse fifteen times saved as many Lives ; Ihe other that of a little Girl, who saved all Infant of which she had the Charge. The Committee have awarded twenlv Guineas to William Evans, and have appropriated fifteen Pounds, under proper Directions, for the schooling and apprenticing of the Girl. The Con. inittee propose to return the Surplus to the Subscribers. This would afford a Dividend of between five and six Shillings iu the Pound ; but to avoid the Intricacy and Trouble of fractional Sums, they have resolved to make the Dividend five Shillings only : reserving the small Surplus to meet contingent Expeuces yet unsettled, and giving Ibe ultimate Balance, if any, to the Infirmary. Tbe different Banks in this Town will return the Money to Ihe Subscribers who will please to call for it, any Day after tbe 19th Instant. In Cases where the Money has been remitted by the Clergyman or Chief Magistrate of any Place, tbe Dividend will be paid to tbe Remitter ; and though it may be impracticable for them to return the small fractional. Share to each individual Subscriber in the Paiish or Dis- trict, it mav be easy to apply it lo some local Charity at their Discretion. INUNDATION FUND.

SIR, Ex fumo dare Lucent, Highly delighted as 1 profess lo lie with the prospect held forth'in your last number, by your correspondent Common Sense," . of this country becoming inde- pendent of the'" fi'drlliera barbarians," for the supply of tallow, by" th'e'introduction of a more wholesome and economical artificial light from vegetable wax; I • cannot refrain from seltmg that gentleman right, in re- spect lo sonrfC errors he appears Ito'be in concerning the scheme of Mr'. Winsor, ( copied ffoiii the'late M. Le Eon, of Paris ; himself again a ciqiyiU from Tail Helmont, Lavoisier, Bishop Watson, Dr. Priestley, and others), for the introduction of gas- lights. ' In the " first place, your correspondent seems at a loss to'comprebend how, after the beautiful demonstrations he, Mr. W. atibrded the public in Pall- Mall, his excellent system miscarried. — Mr. Winsor's system, if So it may he called, has not miscarried. II is founded on the ever- beautiful, wl- deviating, operations of nature, or, I would rather say, on the etern > 1 chemical operations of the divine cause, and consequently cannot miscarry or fail. Like the latent heat of Dr. Black it slumbers, and that from causes it would ho difficult, and perhaps improper, if possible, to explain in a miscellaneous publication'; but it will, assuredly, under the benign influence of an en- lightened Prince, shortly emerge from the obscurity under which, owing to the prejudices of ignorance, and the causes above alluded to, it has hitherto been cloud- ed.— As to the calculations of Mr. Winsor, generally supposed to be greatly exaggerated, ' hut by means of which, and the assistance of that two- edged sword, ridicule, tliey being unfairly taken without their con- text, a worthy Member lor a large northern county, caused the bill lo he thrown out of the honourable House of Commons, in the session 1800;) I am desirous of saying no more, than that Ihe trade being, by the Act of Parliament, 50th Geo. III. cap. 163, left open to apetition, no danger need be apprehended from their exorbitant realization : and, relative to " the Spirit of Philosophy and Patriotism," so elegantly alluded to bv your correspondent, 1 lieg to assure you, from positive and practical knowledge, that, in unison with that praise- worthy, when not abused, object, self- interest, they have been equally active in the furtherance of the schemc in question.— In respect to the escape of crude or ununit- ed "- as, I know that that imperfection, and the conse- quent disagreeable odour is entirely obviated ; and they who have enabled Mr. Winsor so long lo resist the various obstacles, which ignorance, prejudice, and self- interest, have thrown in the way, are far from calling upon the country for the furtherance of their laudable and desirable object, to furnish any of the " countless millions" mentioned by your correspondent; desiring, on the contrary, only to he enabled, hy the completion of Iheir charter, to afford to their fellow- subjects light and fuel, together with tar- pitch and other most valu- able articles, at a vefy reasonable rate ; to his Majesty's Exchequer a considerable and seasonable supply ; and to themselves a remuneration and revenue adequate to the advance of their own capital, and remunerative of their scientific, patriotic, and persevering efforts of in- dustry. GABHIEI. GAS- LIGHT. Walworth, Oct. 2, 1811. " Captains Todd, pf the 29U1 Foot, Srul Wingfield, of tbe Sth West Indjfi Regiment— To he Majors. The Speaker, it is said, will be called up to the lions:; of Peers, after the ensuing Session. At the Sessions in Dublin on Tuesday last, James Byrne was indicted for having published a libel, ac- cusing Dr. Jocelyn,. Bishop of Perns, of ail unnatural attempt,, to commit an abominable offence; and for joining a conspiracy to make that false accusation.— Byrne had lived about 18 months, as coachman, with the brother of the Bishop, but, having'' left him without notice, was refused his discharge ; and it appeared most clearly, that the whole of this horrid imputation was a plan to extort a discharge, such as the prisoner wished, from Mr. Jocelyn, b'Vendcavouring to make him believe that the fame of his venerable brother was in the pri- soner's power.— The Bishop of Ferns was in Court, and was examined.— The prisonei' was found Guilty, and sentenced to two years imprisonment— to be thrice publicly whipped— and to find security, himself in 36500. and two sureties in ^ 100. each. At the sack of Kas- ul- Rliyma, the principal station of the Waliabee pirates, in 1809, in the Persian Gulph, by a British Expedition, three marines obtained a booty of 4500 gold mohurs—.£ 7050, sterling, and many of the soldiers and sailors found inferior sums. This fort was Subsequently relieved by the Wahabees; but, by the last accounts from India, it was again destroyed, by the troops of the Tmauifi of Muscat. Ship- Building.— The first double- deck ship built in England was A. D. 150$)', in the 25th year of the reign of Henry VII. whose name " it bore, and was 1,000 tons burthen, the total expenditure of wiiich is estimated at £' 14.000. Before this, 24- guh ships were the largest in our navy, and those! ttere withoutJiort- h. iles, the guns being on the upper decks' ' oiily.— Pot- the invention of port holes, and various other improvements-, we are undoubtedly indebted to the ingeiluity of M. DechargeS1, an eminent mechanic of Brest, about the year 1500; ill the reign of Louis XUth.— We find, however, that the Vessels in which our illustrious countryman, SirFran'cis Drake, embarked for the West Indies in the year if 57.6, were of a very inferior class, the Pascha being of TO Ions, and the Swan of 25 only; from which circumstance we may naturally infer, that first- rate ships did not become very general until, comparatively Speaking-, a very recent date ; aUhough, in Queen Elisabeth's time, the armament of England in the naval department was computed at 15,270 men.— A first- rate man of war of the present day requires above 70,000 cubic feet of timber, aud expends lBO. OOOlb. of rough hemp in the cordage, & c. It is calculated that the ground 011 which the timber of a 70- gun ship would require to grow, would be 50 acres. Thus, by due gradations and pro- gressive improvements we find the art of ship- building has attained its present high peifection. Singular Suicide,— The following narrative is given in a Paris Journal, as an extract from an account of a . the nurly- burly was at length jot dofie,— the faruter • vas freed from his unwelcome intaales, atid alhUfnger of ; ftittrr<* visits fronrrhe hourp b'eldanes, and ol plots from these midnight hags, were to be prevented, upon the following trifling conditions :— An. ass; wfis to be given away to. any person, but as the wizard delicately hintpd that he- wanted an ass, the gift was'of course made to the most worthy person. His reward, modest mav, was only moderate— a gold guinea ; but I lie annual stipend, without which the wizard could noLsecure the farmer's safely from the witching crew, was to be regularly, a firkin of butter, a fleece of Wool, a ftani, and a boll of wheat.— To secure tile peace, too, of three'strapping wenches, the farmer's daughters, he drew a chalk line round them, and they were strictly cautioned against marrying a man of the county of Durham, without first consulting him, else they would expose themselves and family to the risk of breaking ilie cliarm. Extraordinary account of a Bull.— About two years ago a remaikable fine bull, belonging to J. T. Sandeinans, esq. of Stokelv Hall, near Truro, was lost, and every method was tried lo find him, without success. On the 26th of Septem- ber last, Mr. S.' s steward having received directions to examine a coal pit which had not been forked for" several years, on account of a' spring having issued from an elevated part of the ihine, went there, with some assistants; and having descended to the bottom of the pit, found that tbe water had nearly gone away ; and on further prosecutiiwr their search, found, to their inexpressible astonishment, the very bull which had beeu so long lost, standing as if in the act of drinking; nor did iheir astonishment in Ihe least abate, on discovering that the beast had become a most striking in- stance of petrefaction ; e very feature and muscle were as per- fect as wbep he iVas living, except that, the hair on his hide was changed into a b'eautiful niossv substance", which still retained the original colour of tbe animal, and extended in Curls all over it,, in a manner not to be described. Mr. S. has made several attempts to have the bull removed ; but be has novw given up the idea, as the moss is of so brittle a nature a^ i to break with Ibe slightest touch. Several noblemen and genfleulen hav'e alreddv visited this" phenomenon, aud have bortie testimony to the Vdiiderful effects of nature, exempli- fied in this artlipal. Sf. Hersch'el, iii a papfcr lately read before the Royal Society, has retracted some of bis former opinions respecting nebulae, and that they might be considered as clusters of stars. At present he concludes them to he peculiar condensed matter, supposes tbat they may Constitute or become coniets regrets OUT inability to form any just notions of their inodO of existence; and presumes tlhrt. thev are much niOre numerates that! we have hbherto been tafught to believe. A patent has heeri obtained for a fabric! denominated British Shirting Cloth, which being made partly 6F ( tax and partly of cotton, is equally durable w ith Irish linen, and will wash as well as that substance: Asa non- conductor of he^ t, it will answer the same purjiose as calico, in not producing tbe sense of coldness to those wearers who are subject to per- spiration, and it is said to be about half 4s expensive as Irish linen nf the same width and fineness. A curious nnd very important fact occurred at Cardiff, dpbn ,„ . „ , _ , , _ . , ,, „ 1 the late circuit there. A gentleman ofopWenC'e', a Magis- I our in the Grand Duchy of Berg :—" On Ihe 28th of ! tra. e> a, 1(] of ri0 questioned repute, addressed a letter to diie June, as 1 was passing through a street of Elberfield, I The privateers fitted out in tho French Channel ports of St. Maloes, Dieppe, Boulogne, Calais, and Dunkirk, generally sail with the wind from Northwest to North- east,- and scarcely ever put to sea with the wind from the south. During five months of the last autumn, it will be recollected that the French privateers were chiefly successful in capturing ( for the greater part, be- tween Fecamp and Calais) our armed merchant vessels, which were not sufficiently manned for effectual resist- ance ; and were consequently, in most instances, carried by boarding. From some information received, there is' good reason to believe, that the same plan will still be pursued: the enemy being pretty well informed of Ihe equipment of running ships. The St. Maloes pri- vateers are, we understand, of the largest class. The other ports send out light small luggers, with Irom 50 to 100 men each. Charleston fiani —. An article in the American Papers, dated Charleston, September 2, contains the following particulars relative to' the discovery of the robbery of tbe Hank : — " It is with much satisfaction tbat we are enabled to state the recovery of ihe money taken from the vaults of the late Office of Discount and Deposit in this city, on the night of Ihe 24th ult. It appears, that strong suspicions had been entertained by tins agents of the Bank for • ome days, that Mr. B. Gray, ol ibis city, a man of great mechanical talents, hud been concerned in the robbery. A warrant was accord- ingly procured OI'I Saturday morning, and be was arrested, and updeiwent a long examination at the Bank, befoie John Jl.' Mitchell, F.: q. Justice of the Quorum, in the piesenee of the Directors of the Institution, and several other Gentlemen. We understand, that, although there was much circumstan- tial evidence, tending to criminate M_ r. Gray, produced on this examination,- yet nothing appeared sufficiently strong to have convicted hitii of the fact; he was, however; committed to (. rison in the afternoon, preparatory to a further examin- ation.— In the course of the evening, a negro fellow belonging to Mr. Gray, and who was suspected to have aided hismastei in' removing tbe specie, was arrested by Wuj. Blackluck, Esq. at whose bouse his wife resided, and on being informed that his master bad been committed lo gaol for robbing the Bank, and that be was known to have aided him iu the robbery, he was so intimidated that he confessed the fact, and offered, on condition of pardon, & e. to point out where the money had been concealed. A detachment of the city- guard was imme- diately procured and sent off to secuie the money, which they found deposited in the original boxes, in the inclosure of Mr, Gray's residence, near I lie Race- course, concealed under a quantity of manure, straw, &. c. The money, with the ex- ception of a few hundred dollars, which had been made away Willi, was binught down eaily yesterday morning, and again dt- posited in the vaults, from whence it bad been taken exactly 01c week before. We understand that tbe false keys with which the Bank is supposed to have been entered, besides * lantern, he. were found iu a leathern bag secretin! with the money." A furious invention has. becn lately adopted onboard some of our merchant ships, which seems excellently calculated to prevent their being boarded hy the enemy's small privateers, or boats. II consists in fastening lo the ruff- trees acd quarter- rails of vessels, a. set of boxes, which contain spring bayonets, four feet in length, and which in case of alarm are immediately pushed out in a horizontal position, thereby forming a line of bajOi'. ets I tilie foot asunder, completely fore and aft, over which it. is extremely difficult for the hoarders to pass. They sceni to meet with such general approbation, that it is very probable they will supersede the use of boarding Settings. An Irish genlleman, 011 reading in Ihe newspapers that the aunivcisa: J of the Duke of Kent's birth- day was the 2d instant, and that of his Royal Sister, the Princess Sophia, ou the next day, the 3d, remaiked, it was very extraordinary they should be born so near each other, unless indeed they were twins. Colonel Shrapncll bus made some very great improve- ments in his shells. An experiment will in a few days be tried with them in Mount's Bay. Six privates and a non- commissioned officer from each of file artillery companies at Plvmouth and Exeter, arc to attend the experiment. The following paragraph is extracted from the Coik Mer- cantile Chronicle : — " THE POPS.— We congratulate our Peadeis, and every real friend to Ihe cause of liberty, on Ihe truly Christian fortitude man f. sled by his Holiness in Ins resistance to Ihe arbitrary mandates of tbe Tyrant ; the pri- vate sources ot ir. lt lligence lo which 11 e have ai cest, enable u » io slate, that tile venerable Pontiff positively refused to enter into any eompion. iie with the Ambassadors of Napoleon,— Promise* and 1 In eats weie ultimately resorted to, but pro. . ml'ses aid threats were equally unavailing. Inconsequence of such stedlast and dignified conduct, his Holiness was placed Under additional restiaints ; we are sincerely happy, however, to state, that his Holiness continues to enjoy tolerable bodily health and excellent spirits." saw a great crowd round the house of a shoemaker, who had just, put an end to himself under circumstances which announce much sang froid and order in his ideas. He belonged to the sect of Pietists, and of those who expect speedily Ihe New Siou. Goo had appeared to him in a dream, as he said, and demanded the sacrifice of his son ; but the new Abraham was not so resigned as the father of Isaac, or rather his resigna- tion was different. He consulted the Curate upon his dream, to know if, by sacrificing himself, he could not satisfy the Almighty. The Curate replied, as a wise man, that a dream had not now the same power as formerly; that he ought lo forget it, and continue to live virtuously. But the dreamer did not hearken to tl'. is advice; and persisting in the idea of substituting himself for his son, put an end to his life, on the 38th of June, at ten in the morning, after having finished the work he begun, and put his affairs in order, with a resignation worthy of a belter cause." Anecdote of the late Duke of Portland and Sir J. Lees, Bart.—- til tbe couise of tbe Duke of Portland's lord Lieutenancy of Ireland, his Grace felt some dissatisfaction at the conduct of the Post Office, in Dublin, respecting his pri vate letters; in the course of which some expressions escaped his Grace, which were conveyed to Mr. Lees, theo Secretary of that Office ; w hich he felt as so severe a reflection upon his honour and official probity, that his hair, in one night, changed its colour from brown to perfect white ! The elevated situation of the Doke restrained the uatural idea of personal satisfaction on this score, until his Grace was superseded in his Vice- regal appointment ; when Mr. Lees immediately followed him to England in the next packet, and, going in stantly to his friend Lord Townshend, imparted to him Ihe injury of which he complained, and requested him to bear a message to the Duke, with Which bis Lordship very readily complied. Lord T. lost no time iu waiting upoil the Duke, and, in his ea? y fnanuer, explained the unpleasant demand with which he was charged by his friend, viz. that his Grace would either retract and apologise for the declarations which he had made respecting Mr. Lees, ot that he would appoint a time and place, within six hours, for a personal interview between him and that Gentleman.— His Grace began to treat the matter with great levity, and asked Lord T. " What the world would think of him, if he condescended to have a per- sonal rencontre with a Clirk of the Irish Post Office — To this bis Lordship replied, " And what, my dear Duke, would be the opinion of the world of me, were it known that I was the bearer of a message from a friend, with Whoin, if necessary, I would not exchange situations at any personal risk? Youf GiaCe; therefore, has now your election to make between Sir J. and me I"— There was no parrying Ihe serious point of this repartee ; and the consequence, was, that Sir J. on the same day received that satisfactory apology, which, although it did not give back the colour of his hair, restored his character and feeliiigs to their natural serenity and com- posuie. Saturday se'nnight a man who was employed in getting stone out of a quarry at Cleeve Prior, near Evesham, discovered two large earthen pots, which, on examination, he found contained a quantity of coin. He was of course greatly overjoyed at the discovery j but, having got possession of the idea that the Lord of the Manor would lay claim to the treasure, he refused to I ell the quantity of pieces he had found : however, he has disposed of a few, which are in the hands of gentlemen in Evesham and the neighbourhood. They prove to lie gold and silver coins of several Roman Emperors. The gold coins are of the Emperors Vale- rian, one of the Valeutinians, Gratian, and TheodoSius. It is scarccly possible lo imagine their excellent stale of preservation; they appear as if they had just been issued from the mint, not the minutest mark being obliterated, though from 14 to 1500 years have elapsed since they were coined ; and, what is very interesting to the Antiquarian, counterfeits were discovered among them, executed in a most excellent manner, being copper, plated with gold.— The silver coins are those of Constantine, Julian, Valeiilinian, Gratian, aud Theo- dosius : these w ere not in so good a state of preserva- tion as the gold. The execution of these coins is of course not very good ; the art of cutting the dies being nt that period very much upon the decline. The man has acknowledged that he found 199 of the gold ones ; the silver ones most probably greatly exceeded that number. The Farmer unwilched •' I I — One would have thought, that at this time of day, the reign of wizards and witches had been over, but it seems that they still retain their power, even in the' vety teeth of the Church. A farmer of the name of W , in the neighbourhood of Braudon, a village about four miles west of Durham, who had lost, either Ironi want or disease, two calves, lately took il into his head that the poor animals had lost their lives from witchcraft. Terrified at the iilta of having such unhallowed visitors about his house, he dispatched a messenger for a reputed wizard, of ihe name of Wrightson, v. lio lives in or near Stockton, to com.: for the love of Cod, to unwitch him and his family.— True as the needle to the pole, did the wise man of Stockton, in the fervour of his holy zeal, obey the summons. When he arrived, however, he fouud to hit grief, that some time would elapse before he could expel such a host of imps as the poor farmer was pestered with. After six weeks labour in his vocation, of the Judges, in which his object was, not only to accdse culprit ( committed for manslaughter upon a Coroner's in- quest), ofa deliberate aod savage murder, but also, upon the evidence of assertion alone, to inflame the judicial mind of bis correspondent against that prisoner, by persuading the Judge before- hand, that. unless the accused should be cut off by the law, not a life near him, or within his teach,- could be safe. He represented tbis man as a conspirator, in a desper- ate clan of miscrcants, who were men of sangWoary habits and passions.— He told the Judge that all the witnessed were partial to th'e accused, and would suppress the facts they knew, unless his Id. dship would make them speak out; and desired him to keep' the secret of these hints, for which he gave this reason, " tbat every thing valuable to him was at slake in witholding from this clan a knowledge of the part he took against them." When the Judge had read this letter, which he ieceived in Court, the Bar and Grand Jury attending, he told them letter bad been just put into bis hand, and he named the writer of it; be added, that circumstances of peculiar oeli cacv respecting the subject of that letter, imposed upon his feelings the painful necessity of deferring to publish the eon- tents till the gaol had been delivered, birt that he should then direct his ptinejpnl officer to read it aloud, and should pass a marked ancj public Censure upon it, after delivering which, lie should command the deposit of the letter upon tbe files of the Court, for safe custody, accompanied by a note of its doom, that if the writer chose to'appear h'e would be in time, and would be heard. When the man accused ol the man- slaughter had been tried, and had received the sentence, of imprisonment for three mooths, he was remanded. The writer of Ihe letter did not appear, and the Judge deliveietl. himself as follows, to a numerous audience. We give ihe substance'without professing to . give the words t " You have heard this letter, nnd your looks i> er- e eloquent." They reprobated this tampering and cruel artifice. " A Magistrate of tbe county',' at whose " mercy ih some degree are the lives and - liberties of men, writes to me for tbe single purpose of insinuating and - uhiifierlng a'eay'a man's life, by undue influence upon the judgment of the feelings ol his correspondent. v " His object, is. to invert tbe'habit and principle of a ju- dicial trust, which is that Of being Counsel for prisoners, into tbe new and sanguinary department of a suborned Advocate against them. llis letter prompts me to goad the witnesses into evidence more hostile to the culprit than it was Iheir in- tention to give— advice to me, insinuated behind the back of the accused, anil just before his trial, upon evidence of asser- tion alone, unduly and surreptitiously communicated I " But what heightens the depravity of this insult upon the Court, and tbe cruelty of it, as it has taken aim at the parties who are implicated, is the confidence proposed ar. d claimed. " MyQod!" said the Judge, " is it in 1811, that any man breathing, a subject of this realm, could think a Judge base enough to be ao accomplice in this fraud'Upon the sacred honour of his covenant upon oath ; of his dignified indifference to parties ; and, above all, of his presumptions, which are those of tbe law, that up to tbe moment of conviction, by authentic aiid sworn proof, the accused are innocent? 1' What can be said for the writer ? " Even to him 1 would be merciful. Is it an error of judgment ? Is it ignorance ? But can we forget lhat he is a Magistrate, and tbat he is a Man? Shall a Magistrate ne in- demnified, or dismissed with a gentle rebuke, who is ignorant of the judicial honour imposed tepon him- by his peculiar office ? Is he a Man so enlightened to be unapprised of those feelings, which tell every honourable mind, that 110 man is to be condemned, unheard, anil whispered out 0) the world, by a secret, between his accuser and his Judge ? " A* a memorial to after a'ges, of the disgrace inseparable from attempts like these, I direct the officer to file this letter upon the Records of Ihe Court, accompanied by a note of ihe fact, that it wan read aloud in the open Court, and severely censured by the Judge to \ Vlio'm it was addressed." The other Judge assenting, it was made a Rule of Court. Ucsuscilatioiu— The following statement, which has been sent, to us by a benevolent correspondent, will no doubt, afford pleasing sensations to every philanthropic mind il Ori Saturday a'n elderly man was found lying in the Marshes near Plai^ tow, Essex, and supposed to be dead. A cart was procured to take the body to the workhouse, about a mile and a naif distant; but, as it was apparent tl\ at it could not have been long lifeless, although it was cold, a hope was entertained that there might he some hope of restoration. It was, there- fore ( much to the credit of Mr. Vtse, of the Coach & Hordes public house, PlaistoW}, immediately received, and, Uiider the direction of Mr. Cooke, one of the Medical Assistants to the Humane Society, stripped, and laid upon a warm bed, and after three (| Uarter$ of an hour diligehtly employed in friction with flannels dipped in brandy, a regular, but feeble pulse returned, the muscles began to assume their proper action arid with some difficulty a little rum and millc being got into his stomach, he was enabled, in another hour, to take some cordial and broth, and in the morning gave the following at count of himself :— That his name is John Roger?, bb years of age, by irade an ornamenter of toy?, dolls, & c.; was out of work, and was going to Esher, in Survey, expecting to get employed nearer to London ; that he had lived for eleven day on a twopenny loaf per dav, 3hd occasionally a raw turni nnd had slept in barns, or under hay- ricks, as he COuid liis jour'nev irem Nealing, in Suffolk. That lie was gbitig bv the New Ferry to Woolwich, when he was t'akpn with a pain in his boUels ; which, with his exhaustion by fatigue, induced him to lay himself down on some hay near a rick in the Marshes j and had no recollection of auy thing Iroin that time till the time of taking the rum and milk.— Much praise is due to a labouring woman of the name of ilutley, who greatlv exerted herself in attempting to restore life, and afterwards in attending; on him. A benevolent neighbour sent the man • some fresh linen clothes, and the Overseer wa3 very attentive, with every means in his power, to Wsiat the unfortunate object." s1 Sir Harford Jones has seht 3 present to l. lie Martjuis of Stafford ' of Six Persian goats, thee male's a. d3Tthrfte'fertiales. Fires,— About one o'clock in the morning of Satur- day, a fii- e broke out in the cotton factory the 2fith iilf. of Mr. Thackeray, of Wpod End, at Lees, near Old- ham, which, in a very short time, with all Its valuable machinery, was totally consumed. Happily no lives were lost, though there was great danger of il; for the dwelling house, which adjoins the factory, was by the fire so filled with smoke, as to awake one ofthe chihiren, who gave the alarm. A small part of the household furniture was sav- ed, but chiefly broken to pieces. On Saturday evening, between eight and nine o'clock, a fire broke out in the dye- house of Mr. Collier, of Springfield, Saiford, which in a short lime, notwith- standing the most prompt assistance, consumed tiie building and its Contents, The adjoining and more considerably part ofthe premises, vvas, however, fortu- nately saved. About nine o'clock the tome evening, a fire broke out suddenly in the drying room of Mr. Verdon's1 dyeing concerns, immediately adjoining Tipping's Court.— The inclosed state of these Works, from surrounding buildings, chiefly piles of lofty warehouses, caused a. very great alarm in Cannon- street and the neighbourhood. Only a few yards from the building on fire there is a stable, principally formed of wood; and joining to a very large warehouse ; and on the other side, still near- er, is the warehouse ofa grocer; stored wi 111 inflam- mable articles, including a portion of gunpowder, I11 n line with this are three or four inhabited cottages, which were in the most imminent, danger.— Providen- tially, however, the fire was subdued after destroying only the building and the goods il contained.—- As there ever must be a great degree of danger attendant on the dry- houses for goods, with stoves in them, espe- cially iu the night, a plan of security, equal to the purpose, should certainly be adopted. Among the many useful societies whioh tbe present age has lo boast of, is one lately formed. in Stafford, for the purpose of encohtaffing and promoting the study of the different branches of science. Upwards of <£ 40. have already been collected towards carrying it into eject, and 4 subscription amounting to 5tf guineas ppT anntiiil. lias been entered into, for tile purpose of puicbasing a sufficient quantity of books, apparatus. & c. The benefit that tli£ community at large may deiive from institutions of this Mature, is not. to be esti- mated; and there is little doubt but they will soon become v. ery general. Much merit is due to the zeal and exertions of a few individuals in forming this society, and the very li- beral manner in which it has been supported, reflects great credit 011 the inhabitants of t- ba't town and ne. ighbourhteo< L On the 26th ult. a complaint w » « - heard before the Ma- gis trateS at Stafford, from a woman aghinst her master, for dis- missal from his service and * ith'hotdivi|> her. wages.— When the Magistrates were proceeding' lo administer lhe usual oath, the complainant appeared to understand so little of its nature ol- obligation, that they were induced to put, . some general- questions to her oil the subject. Upon enquiry, it- vtui: ned out that, though she had lived, in respectable farmhouses for several years, she had neTs! r_ cmce beenat church ; and stated that she had been so much employed, particularly in her last place, on Sundays, that it was not ill her power to go.— The Magistrates' in deciding this case, lamented extremely t'liirt masters of families did not in general . insist upon their ser- vants attending some place of public worship 0: 1. a Sunday, instead of employing . them in works which might be easily dispensed with; the notorious scindjl and indecency of which,. in a christian country, is highly reprehensible.— They likewise observed, that masters cantiot be surprised if their servants. do not fulfil their duties, when they themselves neglect one enjoined by human as well as divine laws. , BANKRUPTS, NOVEMBER 2. .
