T, DECEMBER 31. textrtict of a dispatch from Viscount Wellington, dated Frehada, December 12. rj^ IIF, enemy have maile ho movement of importance in JL this quarter, since I addressed you on the 4th instant.— \ have received accounts from ' Cadiz to the 30th of Nov. ; Gen. Ballasreros had been obliged again to retire. It ap- pears that the enemy have brought some troops from Gre- nada to act upon Gen. Ballasteros, as well as the division Tiii'iilei ' Gen. Seiriele, belonging to the 1st'corps.— The official accounts from Valencia come down as far as the 20th of November. The enemy had not at that period made any progress. in their attack upon Gen. Blake's position in front " ol the town. The chiefs of guerillas, Duran, El Empeci- Iiado, and Espiffi y Mina, had been very active and suc- cessful against the errtimy. ' — LONDON, THUIISDAY, Jan. 1. A report was in circulation yesterday, founded oil letters from .- t. Petersburgh, that preliminaries of peace had actually been signed between Russia and the Porte. It is hoped the report will prove correct; hut some doubts may Certainly be entertained as to the fact, as accounts from Vienna, nine days, later than those from Petersburgh, are silent on the subject. If, however, the recent reverses of thcOttomau arms have- been so serious as they have been represented, there seems little doubt but that the Turks must submit tii such conditions as their conquerors may think fit. to impose. Letters have been received in town from Gottenburgh of the 14th ult. and from . Stockholm of a few days earlier. ' 1 he latter mention, that Bernadotte had again expressed his intention not to adopt any measures which could . possibly involve Sweden in a war with Great Britain, and that, as a proof of his amity, Ife had given permission to British ships to enter Swedish ports. It does not appear how this declaration is to be reconciled with the condemnation of the Carlshaui vessels; and vet it is not devoid of probability, as at is known that all the Swedish ships in this country, under Adjudication in the Admiralty Court, have been restored to their owners. Bv the Cossack sloop of war, letters have been received froni Gibraltar to the 6th ult. which state, that Col. Skerrett had been landed at Gibraltar with his brave little army from Tarifa, and immediately proceeded to join Gen. Ballas- teros. Their united force, amounting to about 7,000 men, sallied forth to meet the enemy near St. Rbque, stated to be six thousand strong, with whom they had several skirmishes; in one of which, the allies had three men killed,— and of the Wounded, twenty had been brought into Gibraltar, By the S-. vallow packet, from Cadiz, a variety'of letters and papers have been received, in addition to'those. brought by the Cossack. The most ' important subject to which the firmer refer, is the dispute subsisting between the Spanish Government and the British Ambassador, Mr. 11 Wellisluy. It is n iw understood, that the necessities of the Regency oc- casioned an application to the latter for a regular pecuniary supply, until the arrangements in South America, under the direction of the English Commissioners, should enable the Spanish Government to repay the loans that might be made. It is said, that the British Minister consented to grant the pecuniary assistance to a certain extent, on condition of a change in the Executive Authorities, and the investment of such authorities with the full prerogative of the Sovereign, uncontroulfd by the Cortas. With whom these ample jiowers were to be entrusted is differently stated. By some it is asserted, that Don Pedro, the son of Don Antonio, In- fant of Spain, was proposed by Mr. Wellesley; by others, that lie named for that purpose the eldest son of Ferdinand, King of Naples ; and by a third parly, it is alleged that the Archbishop of Toledo was proposed to be invested with these ample powers. Whatever has been the cause, the difference has, it appears, arisen to some height, and it is sa'd that the Regency, as the fi.- st indication of its hostile disposition, has suspended the law passed ill condescension to British interests for the exportation of cottons, under certain ' duties and regulations. Yesterdav a nnmber of transports arrived from Lisbon. They state that it is found that the success of the guerillas lias led the enemy to avail himself of every accidental means of entrenchment and fortification. ' 1 his circumstance has induced the Spaniards to provide the expedients lor besieging him in t- he places of his temporary retreat. ' I he Commandant Merino lias collected a quantity. of implements and materials to undermine the numerous Convents occupie d by the French— and this new species of warfare has been attended with'great success both io Arragon and Catalonia. _ It is said that the conferences between Jourdan, Daultanue, fn. d Marmont, referred to the assistance required - by Soult from the latter, which Marmont has finally refused to grant, alleging as au excuse, the fatigue his tioops have under- gone, and the great difficulty of procuring subsistence for them. The partv of the Physician ( Medico) has shut up in Chincon 200 of the enemy. On the same day, at a league distance from Aranjucx, all the guards, both infantry and < a » a1ry, stationed on the principal bridge, deserted. The Sildicrs composing the garrison of Madrid, in ten days, to the number of lti6, left their colours, and m almbst every situation the Juratiientados are nearly reduced to the Officers by whom they were commanded. A convoy consisting of 9,000 infantry and 1,400 cavalry, liave. advavced from Escurial to - Brume. The whole body proceeding to Talavera is accompanied by a quantity ot gram and much cattle. The passing of these troops and others to the station of Talavera, has occasioned the expec- tation of some movement in the army of Marmont, and probably ol' a retrograde kind. The fortifications of Cuervft Menus, Allilas, and other places in the mountainous part 6f the district of Toledo tavour this conjecture. A private letter from Lisbon states, that three Portuguese Noblemen, the Marquis of Valencia, the Marquis Ponte Lima, and- Senor Mucillas, had lately arrived there, having made their escape from the enemy. When the French left Lisbon the first time, they went with them. A short time since, they applied by letter to Lord Wellington, to know if he would protect them : which he promised, and wrote to the Urgency, saying what lie had done. Being tired of being traitors' to their own country, they escaped by way of Madrid, and arrived safe at Lisbon, file uncle of M. Ponte Lima was formerly Portuguese Ambassador to Loud another was with Lord Nelson, in the Mediterranean. The brother of Mucillas was in favour with Lord Wellington w ( tea within the lines. They state the French artny as much dissatisfied, ami that'fear only of the guerillas prevents their very numerous desertion. Letters have been received at Plymouth from Brest, wliicli mention the arrival there of the Purse, American schooner, bound to Bourdcaux, detained for hi each df blockade by the Niemen, 41. Alter all the arms, as it was supposed, were taken out, Mr. Sanders, Master's Mate, and ten of the prime seamen of La Nietnen, were put oil board, with the American Captain', three Americans, and a French- man, his wife, and child. In the dusk of the evening, five of the NiemcuVtnen being below, the American Captain drew a pistol, and suddenly shot Mr. Sanders dead; they then drove the remainder of the Niemen's men below, battened down the hatches, and carried the ship into Brest. The melancholy fate of poor Mr. Sanders is much lamented by his Captain, and all the ship's company, as he was a must gentlemanly good young man, and an excellant sea- tbaii and officer. The following is an extract of a Letter from Batavia: — * Bitlavia, August 31.— General Janseti has unfortunately escaped . us: he has very few more left with liiin; hut he lias refused to surrender, and he gets oil so fast that our dragoons have been obl- i ed to give tip the pursuit. It is said, that he is going to ask the assistance of the Native Princes; hut even if he gains it, he will be able to bring against us only an undisciplined rabble." By the Heligoland Mails it appears, that our successes in Spain are not unknown in the north ofGennany, and that the Germans are thus undeceived witii respect to the omni- potence and invincibility of the armies of the Grand Alon'arque and of the- Soldiers of the Grande Nation. The ships destined for the blockade of the Scheldt are re- equipping at Portsmouth, under the superin'tendance of Admiral Durham. The Christian VII, Admiral Young's • flag- ship, arrived at that port ou Sunday to he paid. The Toulon fleet, of 14 sail of the line, and other vessels, has manoeuvred— it went out to sea! It went ( mark reader), it went out of sight id' the shore! Mirubile dicta !— But this is not all:— it performed these actions in sight of two of our vessels;— they engaged— several shots were fired; perhaps it may be expected the ships were sunk !— No.— Were they damaged?— No.— The bullets went through the sails ! Our vessels ( says the account), were nearly taken, This is re- lated with such gravity, in the paper to which we arc indebt- ed for the ( act, that it appears to have been considered by tkie . French and Germans u$ a great exploit Transports are to sail in the latter end of March with two regiments, ordered to Canada, to relieve the 41st and 49th, which have been some v'cars ill that country, and are now under orders to proceed to Portugal; the 4 1st is 750 rank and file, the 49th 800. His Royal Highness the Duke of Sussex has been ap- pointed Deputy Grand Master of the fraternity of Masons, of which the Prince Regent is Grand Master. The honour became vacant by the death of Sir Peter Parker. A great bustle prevailed the whole of yesterday at one of the first departments under Government. Mr. Graham, the Magistrate, was closeted nearly the whole of the day with, the Heads of the office, and Police officers were in attend- ance. Some warrants Were issued. It is supposed that some fraud to a great amount had been detected. A sudden and unexpected r. ise took . place yesterday in the course of exchange of 10 percent, in favour of this country. Theexchange on Hamburgh was done at 27 6, and oil Pans at 19 5. Several billsjiave also been remitted to this country from Russia, These circumstances prove that commerce begins to revive- The Dublin Papers give an account of the Aggregate Meeting of tiie Catholics, held oil Thursday last. They app iuted a Board of 450 persons to prepare a Petition to the Prince Regent, with directions not to present it till the restrictions were taken off. Eight Resolutions- were passed by the Meeting, in which they take upon themselves to decide that the late dissolution of the Catholic Committee was illegal. They add, that " the Irish Roman Catholics are sinking nnder. the heavy burthen of equal taxes without equal benefits," an assertion, to which every one is able to give the most direct contradiction. They resolve that neither the Board now appointed, " nor the General Com- mittee of the Catholics of Ireland, does, or ever did, consist of persons in any manner constituted or appointed to repre- sent, or assume or exercise a right to represent the People of this kingdom, or any number or description of them, or the People of any district within the same; neither does the same consist 01' any persons charged with any further or other function, than that of preparing Catholic Petitions ant) Addresses to the different branches of the Legislature." Rear- Admiral Foley, commanding in the Downs, having been complained of as not protecting the trade from French privateers, has exculpated himself by laying the blame on the masters of vessels, who, Irom attention or ignorance, keep close t) the French, instead of the English coast. On the 12th ult. died, Brigadier- General Colman, in the Portuguese service, at Lisbon. His death was the con- sequence of fever and debility, brought on by exertions in his profession too great for his constitution. He was buried at Lisbon on the 14th, with distinguished military honours. Royal Society.— The Comet.— On Thursday week the Lord Bishop of London and Lord Holland were elected Fellows •< f this Society, after which part of a curious paper, by Dr. llerschell, was read. Dr. II. in observing the Comet in October last, noticed a highly luminous appearance near the centre of its head, which astronomers would call its nucleus. This luminous disk . however he found to deviate considerably from the centre, and to be one time brighter than another. This led him to be mare particular in hi? observations with longer telescopes and higher magnifying powers; these he varied from 7 to 10 and 20 feet with magnifyers up to COO, when he distinctly discovered it to be a planetary body, that it was evidently surrounded by a Cometic atmosphere. On the 10th October, when the Comet was 114 million of miles distant from the earth, by a series of observations and calcu- lations, he ascertained the diameter of this planet to be 428 miles, with an atmosphere subjected to vicissitudes of the Comet. Nearly 40 French officers, made prisoners of war by General Hill, In his brilliant affair at Merida, were con- ducted under an escort to Mill Prison, Plymouth, previous to going on parole of honour. They are very soldierly looking men, and speak with contempt of the dilatory conduct of their General on that memorable occasion. It is said Prince D'Areinberg and General Le Bon are amongst them. In consequence of a recent decision in the Court of 1' einds ( or l'vthes) in Edingburgh, none of the Established Clergy of Scotland will have a smaller stipend than ./ T50 sterling,- and J. 8. 6s. 8d. for communion elements, besides a manse and glebe hi the country parishes. Among the singularities of Cooke, the actor, now in America, it is stated that one night lately at the New York theatre, being intoxicated, he refused to go on the stage till the band had played God save the King. This was resisted for some time by the audience; but the actor was inflexible, and they submitted, rather than lose his perfor- mances. It is added that when a charitable subscription was handed about— the sums subscribed were from one- to 20 dollars cach.— Cooke was applied to, and he immediately wrote down," Ccoke, the Englighman, 100 dollars." An advertisement lately inserted in the Leeds Mercury offers a striking illustration of the absolute necessity of establishing a system of education for the poor. Of tiVelve persons, who publicly apologize for an assault committed on the person of a neighbour, only one could write his name— the marks of the eleven others appearing at the foot of the advertisement.

' To be SOLD by A U C T 1 O N By J. P. CUL LING WOR'I ' If, At the Daventry Arms Inn, in Daventry, on Ihursday the Iflth Dav ot January, 1812, at Fiv- o'clock in the Evening, subject to Conditions of Sale then to be produced, The following Freehold Estates:, Lot 1- \ IK that newly erected MESSUAGE or TENF- , MENT, with the Yard, Garden, and Appurtenances thereto belonging, situate near the Saracen's Head Inn, in the BKOOK- END, in DAVENTRY, in the Occupation of Mr. Ihos. 1 arberry ; also two newly erected TENEMENTS sjt„, ated in the Yard belonging to the last- mentioned P. emises, in the Occupations of Mr. James Butler and Widow Smith Lot 1. All that MESSUAGE or TENEMENT, situated in the BROOK- END, m DAVENTRV aforesaid, with a large Bam. and Appurtenances thereto belonging, in the Occupation of Stolen Child restored.— Yesterday Mr. Dellow arrived town from Gosport with his child, w hich had been stolen some weeks since. The discovery had been made by letters re ceived by the Lord Mayor and the churchwardens who had o fie red the reward. These letters mention, that the wife of the writer of them had given information at Gosport, agains a Mrs. Maguey, who, she said, was in the possession of the little boy w ho was stolen in London about six weeks since.— Upon Mr. Dellow's arrival at Gosport, he ascertained the truth of this itateinent, and saw his child in the gaoler's house, Well taken care of. The child knew. Iiiin directly"; this wo in tin had confessed that it was her w ho took the child away, that the had taken the greatest care of liiin ; that she did it to deceive her htnbaud, who is an officer of a man of war, who had reflected on her for not having children ; and hearing the ship was coming home, went to London on purpose to get a child to pass for his; that the deception had so far succeeded that her husband was exceedingly fund of the child, and had hint fresh christened Henry Maguey, after his own name, and really thought he was his own,. She had likewise bought the child a great many articles of wearing apparel, ail of which she had marked with the letter 11. M. The wri'er of this saw the little boy in the possession of the real mother, whose hap- piness at the recovery of so fine a child may be easier supposed than described ; and the svi'disant mother is expected to be brought to London in a few days, to answer for her conduct. Potatoes.— A most remarkable proof of the fecundity of this useful vegetable, was lately shewn by Mr. Hoar, of Brornptuii, upon his farm at Gillingham, near Chatham. In his growth of potatoes of the year 1810, he promiscuously met with oue that , appeared to be of au extraordinary size ; he examined and weighed it, and found it to contain 101 eyes or sets, and to weigh 41b. lOoz, : from this circumstance he was induced to plant and cultivate it by itself, to see what it would produce, which in the following season proved to be 6> bushels ( 390 lbs.) at 60lbs. per bushel. These potatoes contained 7050 eyes or sets, which he ag iin planted, and in tlie last month dug up the produce, which proved to he 417i bushels, weighing 26,851 pounds. Many of this growth are of an astonishing size ; one in particular weighed olbs. 3 ounces. In digging up this growth, Thomas Head, the bailitf, dug. up the first hour 20saciu and one bushel, the two succeeding hours 33 sacks and one bushel; making 53 sacks and two bushels in three hoars. An important fact has transpired from an eminent Nor- folk grazier, respecting the Swedish turnip. After saving some part of his crop for seed, on pulling up the roots or apples to throw away, he discovered that they were sound and nutritious, and notwithstanding the time of the year, when ( he seed jvas gathering, his horses and other cattle fed on them with great avidity. It is a fact to be relied on that at a Beggar's feast, in Dyot- street, on Christmas- day, upwards of sixty of that fraternity partook of a sumptuous dinner on fish, flesh, and fowl, with wine and spirits in abundance, None were admitted without tickets, and notorious street mendicants. It is generally supposed at Shadwell that Williams was the only person concerned in the recent- murders ; and it is now stated that his real name was Murphy, lie was born near Banbridge, about ten miles from Down Patrick, county of Down, Ireland. A man of the name of Daley was killed in a boxing match, with Jostling, a coachman, ou Saturday, ill the neighbom hood of Ball's Pond. Parliamentary Rewards for apprehending Offenders.

ON Tncsdav next, the Parliament of the United King- dom will commence the important functions of its Sixth Session. The assembling of the Legislature on the present occasion is awaited with more than ordinary anxiety, as its early proceedings will no doubt develope to the nation the course of politics which the Regent means to pursue. Many, rumours have been in circulation as to his Royal Hlghness's intention of retaining the present Ministers: A Morning Paper states, with much confidence, that " an intrigue lately existed in the Cabinet, the object of which was the removal of Mr. Perceval, in n hose place was to he substituted the Marquis Welleslev ; and Mr. Canning was to he restored to bis old station, in the room of the Noble Marquis.— On hearing this, Mr. Perceval is said to have waited upon the Prince Regent about a month ago; afid to have represented to liis I? oval Highness the propriety of a final determination re- specting the persons whom he meant to fill the chief office in Administration, as it was requisite that Gentlemen in the con- fine, ce of the acting Sovereign should advise ( lie speech for the opening of the Session. The Prince Regent is then s: tid to have declared, that he meant t" retain the present Ministry; and to consult with Mr. Perceval, as the head, upon the nati- onal policy to be pursued. The outline of the proposed speech was, in consequence read to his Royal Highness, whose approbation it received, exclusive only of the passage re- 11 biting to Ireland: the interests of which copntry, the Prince desired, might be retained as tile object of future consideration and arrangement." It . added, th; it " a communication has, nevertheless, been subsequently made to'some of the leading Members of the Opposition, assuring them, that the sentiments of the Prince Regent still remained unaltered towards them, of which they should speedily receive satisfactory proofs."— These arc the contradictory statements now afloat. The commercial intercourse between this country and Russia has of late experienced the most encouraging faci- lities. The quantity of hemp, and flax, and other Russian produce, shipped for this country last season, though un- commonly large, has not only been covered by our exports, but the balances due to British merchants are very consider- able. This accounts for the favourable alteration in the • rate of the exchange, which is noticed iti another part of our Paper. French Papers have arrived, of a later date than those which had been previously received. They do not contain any intelligence of importance from the armies. They an- nounce several fresh captures of merchant vessels in the Channel and other quarters, s We are extremely sorry to mention, that intelligence has been received from Harwich, which came by a boat from lloselev- bay, stating the loss of the St. George, of 98 guns, Rear- Admiral Reynolds, Captain Guion, off Jutland. The St. George had been driven ashore in a violent gale, whilst lying in llano Bay, but got off with the assistance of some other ships, nor, however, without losing her masts and rud- 1 der; and it is said, that after her jury- masts were rigged, two vessels were ordered to attend her, but were separated from her in a very heavy gale of wind. She had been towed - by the Cressv, in company with the Defence, Bellette, Pyramus, and Rose, and about 150 miles south of the Scheldt experiencing a dreadful storm, the Cressv was obliged to leave the St. George, and with much difficulty to weather a point of'land. The St. George had been supplied with a new rudder by the Cressy, which returned two days after the storm, to look out for the St. George, but could . learn nothing of her. The St. George is said to have been a strong well- built ship. The other ships were seen to bear well up against the gale. The ilero was left at Gottenburgh 1 with her convoy. Extensive Failure.— We are extremely concerned to hear, that the old and respectable Banking- house of Messrs. Bolder,,. J Lushington, & Co. stopped payment yesterday morning. They aettled every filing on Wednesday, but having to pay a large | « um into the Exchequer, on account of a Northern Bank, • they thought it advisable yesterday to stop. They were 1 Treasurers to several Charities and public Institutions, and 1 are said to have a very large sym owing, for which they have f West India security.— Several respectable Brokers and Job- : bers, in the Stock Exchange, had large balances in their I hands. They balanced their accounts at Christmas last, at J which time the balances were, as usual, much larger. This B failure has, of course, created the utmost consternation in the I City. It is one of tlte oldest banking- houses in the City, and, with % little alteration in the names of the partners, it has been main- | lained in credit and importance during- seventy years. The ' w:> und inflicted on privatecredit, by thiscalamitousevent, occa- I tinned Exchequer- bills, and other public securites, to rise in | the money- market yesterday.— An extent has been issued by CoV"'' n - I";:.', fVr thp money due to the Exchequer.— Among 1 tlte property placed iu the firm, pro tempore, the following ^ « inns are mentioned : , An Insurance Company =£ 63,000 • Subscriptions for the Prisoners in France 60,000 I A Merchant in the Strand 15,000 The first- mentioned sum was to have been drawn this day, • and vested in Government securities. In the present slate of things, the precise amount of the de- foliation is not known; but it is estimated at =£ 800,000. The banking concerns of the house were very extensive. They Hid business with ten or twelve country banks, principally in { the Ninth; at York, Leeds, Burton, Lincoln, Beverly, Bradford, Derby, Hull, Newcastle, Thirsk, Whitehaven, & c. i It was the custom of this House, as. well as many other i Banking- houses, to advance money on securities of various de- \ lcriptinns, which they could not at the moment convert into \ cash to inert their acceptances. This circumstance, no doubt, Jlias tended to increase their embarrassments. One of the Glasgow coaches was lately overturned, in j consequence of running a race with a post- chaise on the road I from Edinburgh, whereby a Mr. Brown was killed, and his ^ wife so bruised, as to be in imminent danger. A verdict V lias since been found, in consequence of an action brought 1 in the Court of Session, against the Proprietors of both the • Coath and chaise. Lord Meadowbank, Ordinary, has | found the defendants liable to the following damages:—• I To Mrs. Brown, in compensation of damages suffered by _ f her person =£" 00 To her, fnr the loss of her husband 200 & ud to each of the children, 8 in number, =£ 130 each.. 1040 BEARDING SCHOOL, NORTHAMPTON.

Bom- Street— We have to record one of the most daring robberies that was ever committed, as well as greatest perse v>- r, nice and exertions by Police Officers, tn detect and appre- hend robbers. Private information had been received, that the house. No. 4, in Bury- slrect, St. James's, kept by Mrs. Martin, was marked to be robbed by a gang of thieves, who hid got to the knowledge that she in general went out every evening, principally | o the play, through the thoughtless and Imprudent conduct of her female servant, who had admitted one of them, named Clayton, to visit her as a sweetheart.— Monday se'nnight was the time fixed on for the perpetration of 1 the robbery. Perry, Reid, Limbcrick, and others, applied 1 to a neighbour residing opposite to Mrs. Martin's house, to ac- 1 commodate them with a room, to watch the proceedings of the " oiglit.— There the officers watched several nights, during which j an intercourse was carried 011 between the servant girl and i ( lay ton, who could not be admitted into the house, as Mrs. 1 Martin was confined by indisposition.— On Wednesday night, Imwcver, nb" ut eight o'clock Mrs. Martin, accompanied by a nftilennd female friend, went in a coach to the theatre. I11 a few minutes after the servant girl came out, and returned lliortlv after with Clayton, and thev went in together. In « bout a quarter of an hour after, Clayton came out, and re- turned iu about five minutes, accompanied by another man.— Clayton knocked at the door, and the girl opened it. She ap- peared to refuse letting the other man in, but Clayton forced open the door, and the other man rushed in. The officers then went over to the house, and heard all three talking very loud the kitchen. Shortly after they ascertained that the two ; n were dragging the girl up stairs against her will, and she was exclaiming, " Lord hnve mercy upon me, what shall I do'! One of the men told her, if she made such a noise, lie wonld blow her brains out, anil presented a pistol to her head, aud kept it there. They forced her up stairs, she continuing Ithe above exclamations in defiance of their threat; the officers heard doors being broke open, He. and in a few minutes after lhe other man, whose name is Jenkins, came down stairs, and { . returned with the kitchen poker; they then heard the other jMoors break open, but not hearing flic noise of the girl con- I tinued, the officers were afraid she was being murdered, and ^ were proceeding to break open the street- door with an iron Itri^ w, which the girl hearing, exclaimed it was her mistress, • rave a sudden spring, released herself from thein, ran down miirs, and the robbers after her; they got into the passage • « st as the officers had broke open the door and got into the ! assage. Pcrrv and Read then seized them; the villains lade a mostdesparate resistance, which they were enabled to 0, being very tall, stout, powerful men ; the officers, how- irr, soon secured them. On searching Clayton a large clasp nifc and a bad dollar were found. O11 Jenkins were found a istol, two bad dollars, & c. On examining the house, the iltcors discovered that a large quantitv of property had been » rkfd up ready tn be carried off. Several rooms and closets " re broke open, and they were in the act of breaking open a nesim hen they were disturbed. The prisoners weriexaaiined iitd reiuuuded. Notice to Debtors and Creditors.

THE Hornet sloop is arrived at Cowes from America, with dispatches, last, from Cherbourgh, where she lauded a Messenger. She has brought American Papers to the 6th ult. ' They contain several very important articles the most prominent of which is, the Report of the House of Representatives of the Committee on Foreign Relations upon the President's Message. It is more decisively hostile to this country than the Message. The conduct of France is discussed with all due deference to Bonaparte; and the delusion practised upon the American people, that the French Decrees are really repealed, is still kept up. Hostilities have commenced between the Americans and the Indians. ' Hie latter attacked the former unexpectedly and a sharp action took place, in which the Americans lost 179 killed and wounded. A dreadful conflict has taken place at Savannah, between the crews of two French privateers. La Vengeance and La Franchise and the Americans. Several were killed on both sides, and the two privateers were burnt by the Americans to the wtirer's edgt— The French are stated to have been the aggressors. Extract qf a letter from Hamburgh, Dec. 27 " The future situation of the Continent seems to depend liiueh on the question of peace or war between Russia and Turkey. Hitherto we have been able to obtain 110 infor mation of a decisive nature, either way. A smuggler, how- ever, arrived here yesterday, which brings a report, that the Hamburgh Paper has a letter either from Bucharest or Seinlin, mentioning the signature of peiice between these two warring powers, and the Master adds, that in consc- quojice of the news a great many troops that had arrived have left Hamburgh, and that warlike preparations seem to be making. It is said likewise elsewhere, that the Schehl fleet is to ride in the Baltic next year, to prosecute wa against Russia, and to prevent England from holding any communication with her." Intelligence is said to have been received from Sweden which states, that Bemadotte has ordered a lery of no less than 80,000 men to be made in the kingdom of " weden, who are to be ready to take the field in the ensuing spring. ' The various departments under Government have been ordered to provide during the winter for the establishment of maga- zines and hospitals. For the subsistence of thislargc force, supplies of grain are to bo procured from the ports of Russia and Swedish Poinerania. A measure of this magni- tude, so much beyond the accustomed exertions of Sweden, could hardly have been adopted without a view to hostilities in some quarter or other, on an extensive scale. Bernadotte it is said, both in his language and his conduct, shews a dis- position to adhere to all treaties with fidelity; but' will' suffer no attempts to be made upon the independence of Sweden. The Fawn is arrived: she apoke a Russian vessel on her passage, which stated, that she saw ( lie St. George, De- fence, and Hero, 011 the 21th, riding iu shoal water, all safe.— Courier « • NORTHAMPTON, SATURDAY IIVliNING, JANUARY i.

"" " 1 ••• • I I MI.— IW.^ W On New Year's day a large quantity of beef and bread was distributed by Colonel and Mrs. Samwell, to the poor of the parish oif Upton, near this town, which at this incle- ment season proved a very acceptable present to nearly eighty persons. The accustomed nilmberof fat oxen', with a suitable quan* tity of bread, being the Christmas annual bounty of his Grace the Duke of Marlborough, was last weok distributed Co upwards of three thousand poor persons in tire vicinity of Blenheim, Oxfordshire. In the garden of Mr. Lee, near Meriden Church; there is now growing a Pear Tree, which has blossomed twice in the last year, and had on it, on Friday last, five pears. On Monday night or early on Tuesday morning a con- siderable number of silver spoons, Sic. were stolen from the butler's pantry of W. Z. L. Ward, Esq. of Guilsborough, near this town. The robber appeared to have entered by the window; and when he had collected his bootv, returned by the same way without attempting to go to any other part of the house. On Wednesday night, about eio'it o'clock, J. Bradshaw, of Bcixworth, was stopped between Creaton and Spratton, near this town, by two stout men, dressed in drab great coats, and robbed of bills to the amount of ^ 37.— One of the bills was a Bank post, value £ 10, indorsed by Walter Strickland. No. 1286. An inquisition was taken at Norton; in this county, on Monday the 23d of December, by R. Abbey, Gent, on'view of the body of a poor woman found dead in the fields.— It appeared that she was so firnily frozen, that pick- axes were necessary to extricate her from the ice.— Verdict, Died bu the inclemency of the w'euthcr. In addition to the violent outrages stated in our last t1 have been committed at Ockbrook and Locko Grange, Der hyshire, we are sorry to observe that an event of equal mag- nitude and atrocity took place in the same neighbourhood on the night preceding. About one o'clock on Sunday morning the 22d ult. the house and shop of Mrs. Elizabeth Handlev, of Lewcote Gate, near West Hallarn, was broken into by a num- ber of villains, nnd robbed of money and goods to a consider- able amount. This pool widow woman, who is nearly 70 years of age, and who by her own industry in the management of a small retail grocery shop has truggled 10 maintain her- self and her five orphan grandchildren, is by this most bar- barous robbery thrown into greai distress. One of tile villains entered the house through the shop window, unbolted the outer door and let iu others ; some of them plundered the shop, while three with handkerchiefs tied over . their faces, entered the room where Mrs. Handlfy and her youngest grandchildren slept, the only persons tlun residing in the house; two of the ruffians went 10 her bedside and held pistols to her hc., d, w hili the third rifled her pockets and boves: after Inking all her money, together with a diamond ring which had been a pre- sent made to the family upwards of one hundred years ago, and charging her to give no alarm, they left her bed room and joined their companions in the house", where they leisurely regaled themselves with such victuals and drink as' the h . ustt afforded; they cooked bacon upon the house tire, and consumed and carried away all Mrs. Handlev's ( cowslip) wine, about eight quarts in the whole, which had been made against her daughter- in- law's approachin^ coufineinent ; one of the buttles which contained the wine has since been found about half a mile from Mrs. Hundley's house. After continuing in thu house upwards of an hour, during which time it is supposed some of the party kept watch 011 the outside, they went off, and it is suspected they took with them out of an adjoining close one of Mr. Chouler's horses to assist iu carrying off their booty, the horse having been found the next morning near Ilkeston Tull- B ar, about a mile distant from Mrs. Hundley's. — Notwithstanding the great exertions which hnve been made to discover the offenders, they remain at present undetected.-— Derby Mercury. The latest accounts from Nottingham continue the recital of outrages, notwithstanding the expectations that were enter- tained of the restoration of tranquillity, from the measures which the magistracy and the manufacturers had adopted. On Tuesday night a frame was broken at Arnold; and the same night a serious affray took place at Shorfwood, in the parish of Trowel. Eighteen men being 011 the prowl, pio- bably for game, were attacked by four well- armed kejpern. one of whom, however, fled to Wollatun- hall, to alarm tl. « nightly guard, and escaped the horrid beating bestowed upon his companions, one of whom is still considered in the greatest danger. The guard from the Hall proceeded to intersect all the roads leading from the scene of action to Nottingham, under an apprehension the depredators were Luddites com£ 550, were jiaid into his Hands. Of this Sum a large Part was announced as intended Annual Subscription. The Committee have this Day met in pursuance of the Reso lution of the General Meeting, and intend to hold their Monthly Meetings regularly. It was by the Committee resolved, that every Minister of the • Established Church and every Dissenting Minister throughout the County, should be requested to promote and reccive Con- tributions from their respective Congregations and others, in sup- port of the Institution, and to make themselves acquainted with the Wants of their Neighbours, in Order to supply Bibles or Testaments; and that they should be further requested to remit the Contributions they may gather to the Treasurer at convenient Opportunfties, and to communicate the Demand for Bibles and Testaments, by tlie Post, to either ot the Secretaries. It was also resolved, that to diffuse the Knowledge of the Ex- istence of the Society, a 1 aper be drawn up anil printed, in as « hort a Form as possible, for the Information of the lower Classes, find generally disseminated. Resolved, That these Resolutions he printed, published, and • 5£ nt to all Cleigymen and Ministers, and to the Subscribers. ( Signedby Order ot the Committee), SAMUiiL Will'l'IiisEAD, CJiairmsh. Gl.

The following Case is a strong Proof ot the superior Efficacy of these Drops:— An Infant, aged tour Years, the Son of Mr. Bunutt, Miller, of W hitchurch, had a violent Scorbutic Erup- tion all over his Body, particularly the Face, insomuch that a Swelling on the Side ot the Nose, the Size of a Pigeon's Egg, entirely closed one Eye, and much affected the other. Having had all the Medical Assistance possible for eighteen Months without Relief, he was induced, through Recommendation, to try these Drops, which had the desired Effect; and in three Weeks the Child was perfectly cured, the Sight of the Eye re- stored, and has continued in perfect Health ever since. This Infant had beea inoculated for the Cow- Pox, about three Months prior to the Appearance of the Eruption.
