Commander in Chief of his Majesty's Ships and J ewels iu the Mediterranean, to J. IV. Croktr, Esq. dated on board the Caledonia, at Port Mahon, fsoo. 7, 1811. SRT, • X7 i) U will do me the favour to lav before their Lordships i the enclosed account, I'roin the Hon. Capt. Duncan, of his Majesty's ship Irnperieuse, stating the capture of three gun- boats, at Possitano, in the Gulph of Salerno, 011 the 11th ult. The gallant conduct of Lieutenant Travers nnd his compan'ons, who carried the Fort hy which they were protected, will receive, I am sure, the approbation of their Lordships. I am, & c. EDWARD PELLEW. II IS Majesty's Ship Tmperieuse, Gulph of Salerno, Oct. 11. Sir,— 1 have the honour to inform you, that his Majesty's ship under my command, this morning attacked three of the enemy's gun- vessels, carrying each an 18- pounder and thirty men, moored under the walls of a strong fort, near the town of Possitano, in the Gulp!) of Salerno: tho Im- fierieuse was anchored about eleven o'clock within range of grape, and in a few minutes the enemy were driven from their guns, and one of the gun- boats was sunk. It however became absolutely necessary to get possession of the fort, the fire of which, though silenced, yet ( from its being regularly wailed round 011 all sides) the ship could not dislodge the soldiers and those of the vessels' crews, who had made their escape on shore and taken shelter in it: the marines and a party of seamen were therefore landed, and, led on hy the First Lieutenant, Eaton 1' ravers, and Lieutenant Pipon, of the Royal Marines, forced their way into the battery i. i the most gallant style, under a very heavy fire of musketry, obliging more than treble their numbers to flv in all directions, leaving behind about thirty men and fifty stand of arms. The guns, which were twenty- four pounders, were thrown over the cliff, the magazines, & c. destroyed, and the two remaining gun vessels brought off. ' 1 he zeal and gallantry of all the officers and crews in this affair, could not have been ex- ceeded, but 1 cannot find words to express my admiration at the manner in which Lieutenant Travel's commanded H » d headed the boats' crews, and landing party, setting the most noble example of intrepidity to the officers and men u'ider him. Owing to baffling winds the ship was unavoid- ably exposed to a raking fire going in, but the fore- top sail yard shot away, is the only damage of any consequence. I have to regret the loss of one marine killed, and two are wounded. 1 am, & c. HF. N. DUNCAN, Captain. [ A letter from Capt. Tetley, of the Guadaloupe, relates the capture, on the 24th of October, of the Syrene, of six puns and 61 men, off Cape Blanco; one from Captain Downie, of the Royalist, the capture on the 6th instant of • the Finet French privateer, of 14 guns and 56 men, of Fulkstone; and one from Captain Hole, of the Kgeria, . he capture on the 30th ult. 10 miles from St. Abb's head, of ibe Alvor Danish privateer, of 14 guns and 38 men.] •— - — LONDON, TUESDAY, Jan. 14. This morning a Lisbon mail arrived, bringing letters and papers to the 23d ult. being only five days later than the advices obtained from the same quarter a fortnight ago. The intelligence they furnish has not much of interest or novel, y in it. The allied army continued in its former positions, and nothing of moment had occurred. The ac- counts received at Lisbon from Valencia reach only to the aDrli of November, and communicate nothing in addition to the intelligence brought from that city by the last Cadiz Mail, which furnished advices to the 10th of December. The communication from the Post Office Agent at Lisbon is as follows :— u Lwuon, Dec. 22.— flead- quartci s si.'.", icmain at i'. cy- nada, where our gallant soldiers and their incomparable Commander amuse their leisure hours, with bunting, • hooting, & c. " General Hill's division likewise remains quiet; be has kept two or three regiments at Albuquerque ever since GirariTs affair. Our men who were sick are now recovering verv fast,— Mina continues to invest Saragossa; be had the other day a very successful affair with 11 French force of 9,000 men at Daroca.— Our last advices from Valencia are of the 22d ult. at which time Suchet had not repaired rhe destruction the garrison causcd in their sortie of the 19th. —' 1 he guerillas in the neighbourhood of Madrid have paid another visit to King Joseph, and carried oil from 30 to 40 of iiis finest mules." Some further letters have been received from the North of Europe, all of which concur in stating, that peace has been concluded between Russia and the Porte ; and, it is added, on more moderate terms than, from the late, successes of the Russians, there was reason to expect. From Hani- burgh, under date to the 23th ult. it is stated, that intelli- gence of the signature of the preliminaries between the Grand Vizier and Prince Italinsky had been forwarded to Paris, and that it had been received with evident marks of dissatisfaction bv Bonaparte. It was conjectured at Ham- burgh, that the departure of the troops from that city and its vicinity had been occasioned by this intelligence, and it was supposed that they would receive orders to proceed to the Duchy of Warsaw, where, it is believed, a large force wjjl be assembled for the purpose of over- awing Russia, 6hould she meditate a departure from her subservience to rhe Councils of France, which all the. recent advices from Petersburg!) represent to be in contemplation.— It was reported at Hamburgh that a treaty, offensive and defensive, had been concluded between Russia and Sweden ; but little credit is to be attached to this, when it is considered that the restoration of Finland to Sweden was one of Bernadotte's pledges, on his being called to the Swedish succession; and, « n the other hand, that the possession of. Finland has been u primary object with the Russian Cabinet since the reign of Peter tho Great. The speculation ir. the Hamburgh letters, and also those from Gottenburgh, that Bernadotte is likely to torn refractory to his political creator, appears 10 be entitled to very little consideration. On Thursday in the House ot' Commons, Lord John T lyune brought up the Prince Regent's Answer to the Ad- iliess, which was as follows:—" Gentlemen— I tlinuk you for this dutiful and loyal Address. Your assurances of the continuance of your support in the great contest in which we are engaged, are highly gratifying to me; and I have the greatest satisfaction in receiving the new proof of your affec- tion and loyalty to the King my father, which is afforded by vour readiness to provide amply and suitably for his com- fort and dignity, under the pressures of the severe calamity with which it " has pleased the Almighty to afflict liitn." " An intercepted letter from Gen. Foy to Marmont, dated from Toledo, published in the Spanish papers, says, " We a e here si completely surrounded, that we cannot go 400 yards from the place in safety." Marmont has given great • iffence at Madrid by bis rapacity 111 collecting supplies. He seizes every thing useful to his army, whatever might have been the purpose for which it was provided. The Dusiree frigate has returned to Yarmouth from the Dutch coast, without having had any communication with the Texel, owing to the state of the weather. The accounts received by her,, nearly extinguish all hopes for the safety of the St. George and Defence. From information' received by the Dcsiree, from vessels she met at sea, tlie. y are sup- posed to have suffered on the IIoni- Reef, and that all hands must have perished. Accounts from Basque Roads state the melancholy issue of a most gallant attempt to cut out some vessels from under the Isle of Aix batteries; all the boats and launches of the Colossus, 74, armed with iiO volunteer seamen and marines, each boat with an 18- pound carronade, rowed in, III the morning before day of Thursday, the 2d instant, to c it out those vessels but just as the Bay opened upon them, the line of gun- boats, aided by the batteries, opened sud- denly so destructive a fire on them that they were thrown into confusion, and could not retreat, owing to a strong tide of fl jod setting in shore. The boats and launches went 011 the rocks, and were lost; eight men were killed and several wu. iuded, and all the rest made prisoners. According to the last letters from Cadiz, the French besieging force amounted to 16,000 men. The enemy oc- casionally amuse themselves by firing from Fort Napoleon ; but without, doing much injury. During two months, not more than two or three casualties had been occasioned by this bombardment. At such times, to convince the enemy that we have the ability to retaliate, the iEtua bomb stands over, and after throwing a few shells, which lias the effects ot inducing the enemy to desist, returns to her anchorage. The French have erected batteries so judiciously along the coast j of the Bay that vessels, both in entering and departing, are liable to be saluted with a discharge of artillery. During the prevalence of particular winds, ships sometimes ap- , proach so near the batteries, that the artillery men may be discerned heating tho balls. Several vessels, among which were two Americans, were so much damaged by these dis- charges, that tliey were obliged to put into Lisbon to repair, and a small vessel was, last month, sunk at the entrance. Very recent intelligence from Holland states, that the measures enforced against all those who are detected in holding clandestine correspondence with Great Britain arc most rigid. Lately several Masters of merchant vessels have been arrested ; of whom one has died in prison, and another is not likely long to survive. The son of a most respectable merchant at Rotterdam, it is added, was under orders for trial by Court- martial, the result of which it was not difficult to anticipate. The Leeds Commercial Bank ( Messrs. Fen ton, Scott, Nicholson and Smith) have stopped payment in consequence of the failure of Messrs. Boldero, Lushington, and Co. It is stated in the Leeds Mercury of Saturday last, that the former were creditors of the latter, at the time of the fai- lure, to the amount of £ 175,000. The same paper however idds, that it is supposed the Commercial Bank will be e. 11- ibled ultimately to fulfil their engagements.— A Lincolnshire Bank also stopped payment last Tuesday. At the Portsmouth Sessions, which commenced on Wed- nesday last, a true bill was found against Mr, Hamilton Crofton, for purloining sundry articles of value from Mr. Bradbury, and some Gentlemen, at the Inns in Portsmouth. Mr. C. was accordingly put upon his trial; but, 011 the prosecutor being called, nobody appeared in support of the indictment, and he was consequently acquitted. Charlotte Magnes, for stealing Dellow's child, will be tried at the London Quarter Sessions this week. The extent of her crime is deemed a misdemeanor, not a felony It is understood that Mr. Magnes is not only now convinced that Thomas Dellore is not his child; but he has obtained most satisfactory proof, that Mrs. Magnes is not his lawful wife— she having a husband living when be married her!

MY Daughter, a Child about three Years of Age, was afilicted with a Swelling and Pain inthe ITligh, which much alarmed me. I applied to the most Eminent of the Pro- fession, and was informed it was a Cancer, and no Cure could be performed without cutting it out. On consulting my Friends, 1 found many Instances of Cancers having been cut out and le- turned worse than before, and that Mr. PRESLAND, of RUSH- DEN, had discovered a Method of Cure without cutting, and those cured in that Way, never experienced any Return. On further Enquiry, I found this to be a Fact substantiated by a Number of living Witnesses. 1 applied immediat'. ly, and have the Happiness to deliver to the Public, that my Child is per- fectly cured without the least Pain, and her Health much im- proved.

Tr An express whs received yesterday from Windsor, at £ arlton llou-> c, stating, " that his Majesty had been restless ( during the night, and was not so well in either bodily or mental health.'' Another express received last night ( Vom Windsor, at Carlton House, stated, " that his Majesty was not better than in the morning." The report of ihe Committee of the House of Commons appointed to examine the King's Physicians on Friday and IVlonday last has been printed, and was delivered yesterday. It occupies 14 folio pages. To the question, Whether his Majesty's health waS such as to render him incapable of coming to Parliament, or attending to business? all the Physicians answered in the affirmative. This was expected; but it appears from the details of the examination, that early in July last his Majesty's malady assumed an aggra- vated turn ; and that this fresh accession of disorder is stated to be of a different character from the former; that between Saturday and Monday last his Majesty's disorder had greatly increased; and that, according to the evidence of Dr. J. Willis, there is since the 9th of October an in" creased degree of derangement in his Majesty's mental health, and that derangement is described as " particularly bordering on insanity, having very much the symptoms of insanity."— With regard to the expectation of recovery, the opinions of the Physicians are as follow:— Dr. M. Baillie thinks it highly improbable.— Dr. IP. Heberden, highly improbable, but not in an extreme degree.— Dr. Thomas Munro, ver/ improbable.— Dr. S. F. Simmons, improbable, but thinks it difficult, perhaps impossible, to say in what degree.— Dr. Sir H. Hal ford, very improbable.— Dr. John Willis, very improbable.— Dr. R. D. Willis, extremely improbable. The thanks of both Houses of Parliament were on Friday voted to Lord Minto, Governor- general of India, Sir Samuel Auchmuty, and the different Officers under his command and direction, for their late important services in the East. In the Commons, Mr. Sheridan and others objected to the vote with regard to Lord Minto, on the ground that his presence in the expedition was unnecessary, and that it was countenancing an improper mixture of civil with military powers. The motion was, however, agreed to. On Tuesday, in the House of Commons, the Clancelior of the Exchequer moved, in a Committee of the whole House, " that the distillation from every kind of grain should be prohibited from 15th of February to tflstof De- cember 1812, and that to make up the deficiency which would be felt in the receipt of duties from the grain distillery, an additional duty should be laid oil sugar wash; and a duty of 12| per cent, upon all foreign spirits imported, except from the colonies."— Agreed to. Letters have been received from the French coast to the 6th inst. They do not contain any intelligence from the Peninsula, further than that additional reinforcements have recently been sent into Spain, composed. chiefly of the last conscripts called out in Germany. The ships of the line at Spithead are to be put into an immediate state of equipment, for some sudden service. The report is, they are to take a reinforcement of troops to Portugal. It was currently reported yesterday on ' Change, that Russia and Sweden have entered into a treaty of armed neutrality, and that numbers of privateers were fitting out in < he different ports of Sweden, to act against the French small craft which at present infest the Sound. A correspondent, who writes from Maryland, under date Nov. 20, considers Mr. Madison's threats of war as mere sounds. •" Ihe strength of our navy ( sav9 he) is known to all the world. Of our army, I mean regulars, two thirds are dying in the hospitals of Florida and Louisiana. Of our numerous militia, the greater number is without arms, with- out discipline, and without zeal. They would no doubt shew courage, but they are without confidence in their officers, advanced by sanction, and not by military merit." A letter was received yesterday from Brest, mentioning the capture of a ship with specie on board, and her being Carried into an adjacent port. The letter is dated the lfth ult. and it is fc- ared that the vessel taken was the Vigilant, 6oine time expected here with a very valuable cargo. The Adventure, Jackson, from Liverpool to St. ICitt's, was taken on the 2 lsr November by two French frigates, bound from the East Indies to Brest. Six Frenchmen, confined on board the Crown prison ship at Portsmouth, contrived to make their escape on Sunday evenins last, taking with them the jolly boat, with four oars and two sails. The French General Simon has broken his parole, and ahscondcd from Odiliam. Simon is stiled a Baron and Chevalier of the French empire. The Transport Board " have offered a reward of ,£ 100 for his apprehension, and , i' 20 for the conviction of any British subject who shall have aided Simon in histscape. A reward of ten guineas is also offered for the recapture of Philip Boiron, a French surgeon, prisoner of war, who accompanied Simon in his flight. His Grace the Duke of Norfolk has presented the Me- t: i ( lists of Worksop, with 20 tons of timber, towards the building of a chapel. ' Ihe Duke of York has ordered that Dr. Bell's System of Education shall be extended to the whole of the children of soldiers, girls as well as boys, throughout the army. Wednesday morning, between two and three- o'clock, a • fire broke out in a house in Stratton- street, Piccadilly, which entirely consumed the same, with all the furniture. The family were from home, and none but servants were in the house. The premises were occupied by Genera! Dow- deswell and family. The house is insured at only one- third of its value. The adjoining premises are considerably dam- aged. The general has lost a very valuable library, antiques, curiosities, & c. The life Murders — A most important discovery has been made within lliese ( wo days, which removes every shadow of doubt respecting the guilt of the late suicide Williams. It was proved before the Magistrates of Shadwell- Ollice, that three weeks before the inurder of Mr. Williamson and his family. Williams hail been seen to have along French knife with an ivory handle. That knife could never be found in • Williams'? trunk, or amongst any of the clothes he left be hind him at the Pear- tree public house. The subsequent Feareh to find it has been successful. On Tuesday, Harrison, one of the lodgers of the Pear- tree public house, in searching timong some old clothes, found a blue jacket, which he im- mediately recognised as part of Williams's apparel. He pro- rfeded to examine it closely, and upon looking at the inside poekel he found it quite stiff with coagulated blood, as if a blood stained hand had been thrust into it. He brought it down to Mrs. Vermilloe who instantly sent for Hope and another of the Shad well Police Officers, to make farther search in the house. Kverv apartment then underwent the most rigid examination, for about an hour and a half, when the officers came at last toil snail closet, where they discovered the object of their pursuit. In one corner of the closet there was a hciip of dirty stockings and other clothes, which being removed, they observed a bit of wood protruding from a mouse- hole in the wall, which they immediately drew out, and at the = nme instant they discovered the handle of a clasp- knife. apparently dyed with blood ; which upon being brought forth, proved to he the identical French kuife seen iu W il- liams's possession before the murders: the handle aiid blade of y hicli wore smeared all over with blood. This fact completes that chain of strong circumstantial evidence already adduced Against rhe suicide. The bloody jacket also tends to confirm liis guilt. It is pretty clear, that that part of his apparel must have been stained with the blood of the unfortunate Mrs. Williamson, when the suicide was transferring her money, wjtli his bloody hand, to his pocket. Sunday night, another attempt at robbery and murder was made nt- u shoemaker's shop, the corner of the Talbot Inn, in the Borough. About nine in the evening, two follows picked the iock of the street- door, r. nd had packed tip a large quantity of boots and shoes, when tliev were overheard by ail old woman who was left in the charge of the house during the absence of the family. She imme- diately shrieked out, when one of tliem gave her a most desperate cut with a knife, and both made their escape before assistance arrived. We are happy to say, the wound . ijs not supposed to be mortal. It is truly painful to state that the Edinburgh Papers, ^ represent that City has having been exposed to outrages little short in point of atrocity, to those which have lately disgraced this metropolis. The Edinburgh Paper of Thursday last contains two advertisements, one offering a reward of £ 100 for the apprehension of the murderers of a person of the name of Dugald Campbell, a police officer; the other offering the like reward tor the apprehension of the murderer of a Mr. James Campbell, a merchant's clerk. It is also stated in the advertisements, that several other persons have been severely wounded, an « l new lying ' tlar^ crwily ill. ADDERBURY SCHOOL. * ev. .

STERDAY in tlie House of Commons, after some in- 3L t'- oductory business was gone through, and the lb use being resolved into a Committee for taking into consideration so much of the Lords Commissioners' Speech as related to ( lis Majesty's Household, the Chancellor of the Exchequer rose to make his motion for the future arrangement of his Majesty's Household. This measure, he said, was now rendered, necessary from the unfortunate improbability of liis Majesty's recovery, and from the Regency Restrictions expiring on the 13th of February, when the Prince Regent would have the entire Kingly power in his hands. After ex- plainingthe intended changes nt great length, Mr. Perceval said, that as the Lord Steward ard the Lord Chamberlain had to attend to other important business, he would propose to select the Gl oom of the Stole to superintend the whole of his Majesty's Establishment, who'was to be allowed the Vice- Chamberlain as his deputy. He proposed also that there should he four Lords of the Bedchamber, the Master of rile Uobes, and seven Equerries, under the Groom of the Stole; any vacancy to he filled up by her Majesty. The first sum for the domestic establishment of his Majestv to be ,£ 100,000 per annum, to be provided out of the Civil List. He also observed that her Majesty should be granted nil addition of ,£ 10,000 a year, to provide Iler with a suitable establishment for her ease and comfort. To meet the ex- penses already incurved by the Prince, in assuming the reins of Government, a grant of ,£ 100,000 he proposed should be made him. In addition to the allowance to the Prince Regent of ^£ 120,000 per annum, as Heir Apparent, ,£ 70,000 per annum to be adrled from the Consolidated Fund, and „£ 10,000 from the Duchy of Lancaster, which would be the amount neefssarv for the maintainance of his establishment. The additional permanent establishment to the country, of tlie two Royal Establishments, would be .£ 70,000. The Chancellor of the Exchequer conclude with proposing a string of resolutions, the substance (. which was contained in his speech. Mr. Ponsonby, Mr. Sheridan, and Mr. Tierney, madr some objections, but the Resolutions were ultimately agree tu.— Adjourned. It is now so strongly believed that peace is signed between . tho Russians and Turks, that the merchants in some re- spects are acting upon that conviction. It is farther added, hut it is not stated on what authority, that we shall have an ppen trade in the Baltic next season. On this presumption, colonial produce has been progressively on the rise for some time past. General Sim n, for whom the reward of „£ 100 was offered by Government, was taken at a late hour last night, at a house in Camden- town, where be was found concealed in the coal- hole. One of tlie accusations against him, we un derstaud to he, that of giving information to Ronaparte against a French General, lately in this country, who re- peatedly lefused to break his parole, although furnished with the means bv the emissaries of the Tyrant in this Country. Our Government thought so highly of the above Officer's conduct, that tiiey permitted him to return to France without any solicitation on his part. On his land- ing, he was instantly shot by order of his ferocious master The largest emerald which has ever been seen has lately been imported from the East Indies; it was one of the most valuable stones of Tippoo Saib's crown. It is of an extra ordinary size, and its weight is supposed to exceed consi- derably 506 grains. Mr. Daniel Ellis has published an ingenious paper in the last number of the Edinburgh Medical and Surgical Journal, upon the accidents ascribed to the " wind of a ball-'' He considers the effects commonly attributed to this cause to • be in their nature truly electrical: and to be really produced by the agency of the subtile matter ^ caloric) developed by the condensation Iff the air during the rapid motion of the ball. Mr. Joseph Tilnev, of Writtle, Essex, lately had in his s possession a sow of the Chinese breed, which produced in 15 times farrowing, 301 pigs, 177 of which she brought up. This fact clearly demonstrates the superiority of the breed. On Thursday attheOld Bailey, John Clayton and William Jenkins were indicted, for breaking into the dwelling- house of Jane Fearn, No. 11, Bury- street, St. James's, with intent to steal therein. The leading features of this case must be in the recollection of our readers.— Mrs. Fearn, the prose- cutrix, lived in Bury- strcet, St. James's, and kept only one servant. The prisoner Clayton, one day in September, rapped at the door, and enquired if her mistress was at home ? mid finding she was out, pretended he had a letter for her. lie afterwards commenced an acquaintance with her, and i would treat her to drink. On the 1st of January, when Mrs. Fearn was gone to the play, he came to the house, and said he saw the mistress was gone out, anil he was cr. me to keep her company. He accordingly went down into the kitchen, but shortly afterwards went out, under pretence of getting something to drink, when he returned, accompanied by the other prisoner, who having rushed into the house, they pro- ceeded to drag the girl up stairs, to seek for some hidden gold which they said they knew her mistress had. It also appeared that this report of some gold possessed by the prosecutrix, was the cause of this attempt; for private information had been communicated to Bow- street, that the robbery would be attempted, and the officers had been npou tiie watch for several days previous, anil were actually on the look our, when the two prisoners entered the house Thev followed, and Isoking through the key- hole, saw one of the prisoners attempting to drag the servant tip stairs, who was crying out for assistance. They broke the door open, and both prisoners were immediately apprehended. The Jury found them both Gaiity.— Death. A true hill was found against Benjamin Walsh, at tho Old Bailey, for t'elonv.

British i essels have been long in pursuit, and have frequently gained sight of her, but have hitherto endeavoured to come up with ber in vain.— The great success of the French pri- vateers in tho Baltic^ the West Indies, and the Channel, is mentioned as the ground of much exultation to the French Government. In consequence of the unparalleled success of the Captain of the Duke of Dautzic, it was supposed to lie the intention of Bonaparte to confir on him some titu- lary distinction. The 2il battalion of the 40th Regiment, which has been in Ireland for some years, is among those marked down lor Portugal. Orders have been issued from the Horse Guards, to the Generals commanding Districts, requiring them to enjoin all guards within t^ ie districts uuder their command to be extremely alert and vigilant in the performance of their night duties, and to be ready on all occasions to furnish patroles, both of cavalry and infantry, on the requisition of constables or other peace officers, or even of Watchmen, on their representing that they have reason to believe that there are persons engaged in the commission of burglaries, or other nightly depredations, in the vicinity of th ir posts. A letter from Jersey states, that the Commissio lers sent over to examine into the Constitution of that isl ind, and the practice of the Royal Court, are making great progress in their mission, and the arrangements which it is expected will ensue, are of a nature most satisfactory to the major part of the inhabitants, being calculated to prevent tedious- ness, inconvenience, and indecision in the administration of the laws, and to terminate the violent effusions of party spirit, which have too often disturbed the peace of the island, and occasioned many troublesome applications to his Majesty's Council. All doubt respecting the fate of the St. George and Defence men of war are at length removed, by the unhappy confirmation of the loss of both these ships on the 24th ult. off the coast of Jutland, with the lamentable addition, that of the two crews, consisting of 1,380 men, not more than 18 were preserved from the pitiless gulph. The Dublin Freeman's Journal of Tuesday last, received this morning, says, " The three following persons, J. Keegao, O. Adams, and T. Quartermas, have, we under- stand, been committed to the gaol of, Kilmainliam, charged with having traitorously and feloniously conspired against the King and government. Keegan and Adams were brought up on Monday to the head Police office, where they under- went an examination before the Magistrates."

TWO Anholt mails arrived yesterday afternoon, with letters from St. Petersburg!! to the 21st ult. and from Gottenburgh to the lltli instant. From the former place it is stated, that peace between the Russians and Turks W& s signed on the 2titli of November. In consequence of this intelligence, the exchange at St. Petersburg!) rose to 20^. A messenger reached England in the last packet, with dispatches to our Government, announcing, it is presumed, this agreeable occurrence. By well authenticated letters, it appears that the peace was accelerated by a destructive battle, in which the Turks were completely overthrown, having been first surrounded by the Russians. The. Turks are said to have been so completely dismayed, that they surrendered themselves prisoners of war, to the number, according to the official report from the Russian General Kutusow, published at St. Petersburg!!, of 35,000 men. The Russians being completely in possession of the field of battle, found all the magazines and baggage, and took 50 pieces of cannon. The news of thisimportantvictory was announced at St. Petersburg!! on the 8th of December ( old stile). On this tiefeat of the Turks, they offered to accept those terms which they had previously spurned ; and the signing of preliminaries immediately followed; which are said to have been ratified at St. Petersburgh. It was this latter event which occasioned the late rapid advance of the exchange on London. They write from Sweden, that there was ever,- prospect of a good understanding between that Country and England ; and that the French Charge d'Affaires either had quitted, or was on the eve of quitting Stockholm, and the French Consul Gottenburgh.— This intelligence is certainly ques- tionable. Dispatches were yesterday sent off for Cadiz, with pro- positions for adjusting the points in dispute between our Minister and the Spanish Government. Some letters have been received from the French coast to the 6th inst. They commuuicate no intelligence from the French armies in the Peninsula, further than that addi tional reinforcements had recently been sent into Spain, composed chiefly of the last conscripts called out in Ger- many.— Recent intelligence had been received at a French port, of the successes of the Duke of Dantzic privateer in the West Indie s, which is stated to have taken, up to the middle of October, about 35 valuable ships. In n very short time the Captain was expected to return to France, and resign his Command to some other equally enterprising Officer. This privateer has made prizes amply sufficient to enrich her owners. Many of the ships captured were NORTHAMPTON, SATURDAY EVENING, Jaxvar* 18.

Some person in company for a joke put spme gun- powder in the tobacco he was using; it of course exploded, and caused the fragments of tiie tobacco- pipe to enter the roof of his mouth. Instant death ensued.' He has left thirteen children to lament his loss. On tlie 2d instant, aged 3< 2, Mr. Melton, of Gainshal1, near Buckden, Hunts. On his death- bed, be is said to have expressed a wish that a favourite daughter, about seven years of age, should enter eternity with him. Al- though then apparently well, awful to relate, the day after her father's decease, she breathed her last. They were both interred at the same time, in one grave.

Agriculture.— Among the premiums offered by the Cam- bridgeshire Agricultural Society, is one by tiie Earl of Ilardwicke, for the best acre of Fiorin Grass, and another for the next in point of merit. It is now proved by the expe- riments which have been made, that this grass produces art immense quantity of green winter food for milch cows," cattle, sheep, and young horses— for working horses it i 1 better to make ir into hay, which can be done in the winter, as it dries easily in the air, and is not injured by rain, fro: t or snow, neither does it heat in the hay- cocks. The quan- tity of hay is from six to eight ton per acre. It should not be mown before October, nor should any be cut after March, The mode of cultivating it is very simple; a piece of well ploughed land is to be strewed over with the strings of the Fiorin Grass, which must be nearly covered witli loose earth, or compost, which is preferable. It answers particularly well on w et land, or on land that is capable of being irrigated both summer and winter, The proper time for planting it, is from November to April, but it requires to be carefully weeded in the spring and summer, for the first year. It is essential that it should at all times he kept fenced from cattle and sheep. If planted during the present or even the next month, the crop will be fit to cat next Christinas. This Grass is easily collected when known, and mav he ga- thered for planting from the sides of roads and ditches. On the morning of Wednesday se'nnight, Mrs Ctipis, of Wyton, not far from St. Ives, had 35 in- lamb ewes killed, in one of her closes, by a strange dog. A person walking early in the morning from St. Ives towards the above village, met a bull- dog covered with blood. He is said to belong to St. Ives; Within the last fortnight, several sheep have been worried during the night, in St. Mary's Field, and the neighbourhood of the Granby Toll Gate, near Leicester. Ou Wednestlay the 1st inst. an inquisition was taken at Addingrove, in the parish of Oakley, Bucks, before James Burnhani, Gent, coroner, on view of the body of Mary, wile of Mr. John Smith, an opulent gentleman of the said parish, who, on the Saturday evening preceding, having retired to bed as usual, was early the following morning found dead by her husband.

Nottingham, Jan 10.— Notwithstanding the adoption of every measure calculated to put a stop to the feloniom system of frame- breaking, conciliatory as well as coercive, the practice still continues, and, if possible, under mora aggravated circumstances. No less a number than stocking and lace frames have been broken in the immediata vicinity of this town, and several even in the town itself, since our last; and what adds most seriously to this evil, is, that it has opened the door for the commission of every other species of crime, murder as yet only excepted. Scarcely a night passes without the perpetration of some fresh outrage or robbery, and hordes of banditti infest ti e country to such a degree, that neither persons nor property can be considered safe either by day or night. On Saturday evening last, about six o'clock, a waggoner, returning to this town, with a team, was overtaken by four men, on the road, between tiie Swan public house and Map- perley hill, two of whom presented pistols at his- breast, while the other, armed with bludgeons, rifled bis pockets, and took from him seven pound- notes, together with a bundle of clothes. They then made off with their booty across tha fields towards Basford.— The same night an attempt was made to take away the life of a person, a constable, of New Radford, by some sanguinary villains, who, under the pre- tence that a party of frame- breakers were at work in a neighbouring house, called him up from his bed, ® nd on h s opening the window, fired a pistul at him, the ball from which struck the window frame, but happily did him nn injury.— On Sunday evening last, a hay Slack, stindingin a close, near Mansfield, the property of Mr. Doilsley, was maliciously set on fire, and a part of it destroyed A reward of „£ l00 is offered by the inhabitants of - Mansfield, for the discovery of the perpetrator of this diabolical act.— Oil Wednesday, a wind- mill, standing on Bulwell forest, was felo- niously broken into, by some persons, at present unknown, who broke and destroyed a part of the machinery, and carried away several articles; and the same evening soma vile miscreants set fire to a barn, belonging to Mrs. Daykiii. of Bagthorpe farm, a great part of w hich, with its contents, fell a prey to the flames. It is supposed to have been the object of tlie desperadoes in this last instance, to rob th( j house of Mrs. D. by taking advantage of the confusion, liicb the fire would necessarily occasion; but in tiiis they fortunately failed. Jan. 14.— Lite frame- breakers seem to acquire new bold- ness; and more than 20 lace frames were destroyed ou unday night. Nine of these were broken in Cartergate, between seven and eight o'clock in the evening; and two of the constables having come up at the time, one of the par. y of rioters presented a blunderbuss, and another a pisti l to the constables, and told them, if they attempted to interfere, they should receive the contents. Other accounts sta- e, that on this occasion there were from 30 to CO rioters, armed with pistols, for the purpose of protecting their confederates while engaged in the destruction of the frames,— The de- struction of the frames which took placc in Carter- lane, on Sunday night, produced a great sensation. As soon as an alarm could be given, the Civil and Military Authorises were in action; but the frame- breakers were no more heard of until last night, at New Radford, where, with their usual audacity, they demolished three lace- frames, which were making a kind of net contrary to their orders, and then dispersed.

He afterwards distinguished himself last war, iu the several commands of the Mermaid and La Loire frigates; and iu this war in that of the Vanguard, 74, and Veteran, 64. He had been 30 years at sea, in 20 of which he was not six months on shore, in the East and West Indies, and in many engagements. Grand Junction Canal.— Notwithstanding the embarrassed state of our commerce, and tlie general scarcity of money, the tonnage receiv& d from this great national undertaking is said to have amounted in the last year to upwards of ,£ 139,000. Since the annual account has been made up ( and this important fact has been ascertained) shares have experienced a considerable advance in price, and are still rising. On Monday next, a match of pigeon shooting will take place in Stamford Fields, between Mr. Strange, of Stamford, ' and one of the keepers of Burghley- park. Caution to Publicans.— At Huntingdon sessions, a jury was impannelled, pursuant to the 26 Geo.

HUNTINGDON, January 9- OUR j- caHers are already informed that an Auxiliary Bible Society lias been instituted in the county of JliiKTTionon and its vicinity ; and we are now enabled to *! RV he fore them a more minute detail of the proceeding ot the meeting, held in the Town Hall, at Huntingdon, on the 31st of Uarember. AlCimt eleven o'clock a very numerous and highlv re- ipectable assembly was collected, and on the motion of the l? ev. Mr. Bourdillon, vicar of Fenstanton, seconded by Ii. • Welstead, I'sq. of Kimbnlton, Lord Viscount Hinchingbrook was railed to the chair in the place of the Duke of Manchester. Lord H. opened the business of the day by expressing his regret that his Grace was necessarily absent, and further stated that when the application was first made to him to be- come a Vice- President, he acknowledged. he felt some degree of hesitation; until having deliberated on the subject, he became convinced that the object of this society was truly excellent ; and could not himself perceive on what ground any objections to the circulation of the Scriptures mthnut note or'comment cotild possibly rest ;— those Scriptures which were so eminently calculated to ameliorate the condition of mankind in this world, and to prepare them for immortality. W. H. Fellowes, Esq. Member for the county, proposed the resolutions, which were seconded by G. W. Leeds, Esq. and previously to their being passed, the Secretaries to the Parent Society, who, with great personal inconvenience, favoured the meeting with their attendance, came forward to explain the nature and detail the operations of that society. We ex- ceedingly regret our inability to give an adequate represen- tation of the solid reasoning, the refined taste, the manly and christian eloquence displayed by the Rev. J. Owen, in Ins speeches both at the commencement and conclusion of the meeting. In his introductory speech, tile net'. J. Owen adverted to the maimer in which his Lordship had been induced to take so prominent a part in the business of that meeting— that hehad not suffered the citadel of his heart to be taken before the outworks of his understanding were carried. He wished that the claims of the British and Foreign Bible Society should he fully investigated— he was persuaded that they would rise in proportion as they were examined.— He then adverted to the afflicted state of Europe— to the iron grasp of Bonaparte, and to the influence of the Bible Society in ameliorating the con- dition of the world. By disseminating the Scriptures amongst the unhappy French prisonersof war, the society was making a depot in'the heart" of our enemies, was in fact conquering them tu'irr over: thus leading captivity captive; and in the event of their returning to their native country, was establish- ing a counteracting influence to the machinations of our im- placable foe, in the very heart of his own dominions. Rev. Mr. Steinhopff.— It is now ten years since I was called from my native country to visit this highly favoured island, and often have I blessed God that my happy lot has been cast in a land abounding as this does in civil and religious liberty, aland over which a gracious Providence has watched, while others have been desolated and are still suffering under the Scohrge of war. Nothing is so striking to the mind or a foreigner visiting this country, as the many benevolent insti- tutions formed in it, and among others this noble one of the British and Foreign Bible Society. This is a Society for which I bless God that I was ever brought into connection with it. Its aim and design is ot the simplest and the purest kind, dictated by truly christian benevolence— to distribute the Holy Scriptures throughout the world without note or . comment, to spread the light of Divine truth in countries sit- ting in Heathen or Mahometan darkness. If we turn our at- tention to India, we shall see nearly a million of native chris- tians bv whom the Scriptures would be, received with delight; and if we view the Turkish Empire, how desirable an object it i « . to substitute the B; ble for the Koran, and how animating to t'vnk that there is already a Turkish Testament printing at Karnss. But let us advert even'to Christian countries— in some parts of the Russian Empire one may travel many miles without meeting with a Bible, and in two provinces of that Empire. Fsthonia and Livonia, there are estimated to be • 4( W, 060 families with hut very few Bibles. In several dis- tricts of Lithuania the copies'of the Scriptures arc so scarce that the price is from 1 to =£ 2. How is it possible for a poor man to navsuch a price ? We have, however, the pleasure of knowing that there is an edition printing at Konisberg. ! t is pleasing to notice the desire which foreigners who have visited this country have expressed to obtain the Scriptures in their Own languages. An instance of this occurred at Plymouth, when a Spanish frigate touched there, and it was made known to the crew that a respectable clergyman of that place had a quantity of Spanish Testaments to dispose of; they flocked to him, and when they received the book, expressed their grati- tude by kissing his hands with tears of joy. When some time since 200 copies of the Dutch Testament we're sent to Sutinam, the people, and especially the free negroes, crowded around the person to whom they were consigned, and requested H copy-— they were soon disposed of, and the gentleman ex- pressed how truly painful it was to his feelings, not to be able to supply them all. In this country the French prisoners have received them with gratitude, which some of them have ex- pressed by letters, and I have no doubt tiut many will have reason to bless God that they have ever been prisoners in this island. Many of the Esquimaux have been taught to read, and when they received the Gospel of St. John translated into their own language, their joy was exceedingly great, and they expressed their wonder that strangers should think of the poor Esquimaux, and print for them, as they expressed it in their simple language " the comfortable words of God." Many there are who are separated from us by war, who are lifting up their hands and hearts in prayer for the safety of England, and it is nif unfeigned wish and prayer that God would pre- serve voti from those calamities which mv native land has suffered ; in a v vou never witness the inroads of a desolating armv— mav God bV~ s you with the riches of his grace, pros- per you with all real happiness, and bring you with his peo- ple of all nations and tongues to his everlasting kingdom ! The. He a. Mr. Hughes then rose and spoke to the following effect: " The present age ( he said) exhibited a few symp- toms of a, dark and discouraging nature. On the other hand, they must certainly allow that it was characterised also by symptoms which every mind should contemplate with satis- faction and gratitude. Of this remark, they were furnished with clear and ample illustrations in the subject, the only sub- ject to be brought under the notice of that numerous and most ' respectable meeting. The noblemen and gentlemen present were convened in order to express their sentiments respecting the British and Foreign Bible Society, lie anticipated those sentiments, and fell persuaded that they would express them in that emphatic, ardent, and efficient manner which British and Foreign voices would celebrate and welcome in the loudest strains. For the institution, progress, and effects of that So- ciety proved that, notwithstanding the age in which they lived must in one view be pronounced the age of infidelity, conten- tion, and alarm, it was in another view, the age of faith, charity, and • hope. Thus evil and good appeared in striking contrast, and the solicitude which urged prayer had its pow- erful rival in the cheerfulness which uttered unceasing praise. " To the question, Do we live in the age of infidelity ? the continent of Europe returned a mournful answer. It was there that an English Philosopher received, in a circle of the learned, expressions of enthusiastic regard from one and only one person, who signified his astonishment and delight, upon finding that a man of such distinguished abilities and acquisi- tions had the courage to declare himself a believer in the existence of God. There an infidel boasted that what twelve apostles had undertaken to establish, lie would invalidate and destroy. In Britain, too, a certain vulgar publication ob- tained a few years since a mischievous popularity. But infidelity abroad, after having rolled along in torrents of blood, had shrunk into smaller dimensions; and whatever charms it might still have for the minds of individuals, it ceased to attract public attention.— As far as Britain is con- cerned— statements yet more favourable might be offered.- Much had been achieved by a Douglas, a Campbell, Beanie, n Porteus, a Paley, and a Watson. But the best expedient is the exhibtion of the Scriptures themselves, unac- companied with commentaries, and therefore free from every influence that might suppress their language or pervert their meaning. to say nothing of the concord which her patronage of the society promotes among her sons, anil of the elevated principle it is calculated to inspire ; the Bible directs her to herstrongest bulwark, and the effort to make its treasures the property of all mankind, constitutes her highest glory. Of such a land, it is hoped, the supreme Disposer will say, " Destroy it not, for a blessing is iu it." " Did the British and Foreign Bible Society- contemplate remote nations ? Yes, and for them it had received a healing and heavenly ministry. Its blessings shall be borne to every continent, and eve y island ; dispeilingbarbarism, superstition, and idolatry, purifying the moral atmosphere, sweetening the waters of Marah ; and enrapturing millions with the prospect of glory, honour, and immortality. " On these grounds ( he observed1) the Secretaries of tin- parent Society were importunate in their pleadings, and anxious for success. Yet why should he say importunate and anxious, while surrounded by so many whose judgments were convinced and whose hearts were opened ! The advocates of the cause filled the hall, and seemed as if they were determined to contribute their utmost towards justifying the encomium of the present age as the age of Faith, Charity, and Hope. " He then congratulated the meeting on concluding the year in a manner honourable to themselves and most beneficial to others. They were giving proof that if the warmth of summer " " wn their strength, neither had the wintry " The zeal with which our countrymen have employed this expedient might prompt us ( he observed) to congratulate each other on living in the age of Faith, the age in which more has been done for the circulation of Che Scriptures than in any former age. 44 To the question, Do we live in the age of contention ? Humanity weeps while in proof of the affirmative, she points to trembling thrones,— to banished and slaughtered sovereign; •— to lamenting families,— to desolate provinces,— and to fierce legions marching to complete their work of blood. There were, too, within our otherwise peaceful shores, and within the hallowed walls of Zion, jealous and turbulent spirits which sow discord- among brethren, and pour oil on the Haines of theological war. But, lo ! a voice from heaven is heard wherever the influence of the British and Foreign Bible Society extends, and to the children of the same Almighty Parent, the disciples ot the same most merciful Redeemer, i says, " Be ye kindly affectioned, and see that ye love one " another with a pure heart fervently." Many have listened < o the friendly voice ; and considering the union of parties a home and the munificent grants to strangers and even enemies abroad, who can forbear proclaiming this to be the age of charity ! Once more— To the question, Do we live in the age of chirm ? As far as infidelity and contention prevail, we cer- tainly do. Indeed Europe is likely to remain for ages the tfltirt and victim of political storms. Anil though Britain has been so wonderfully preserved, yet her inhabitants, from the peer t » i the peasant, have felt the general shock; " and for . ajl " this the wrath of God is not turned away, bet his hand '' is stretched out still." Let Europe rejoice. The Feed scattered by the British and Foreign Bible Society is springing up to supply and , \ latldeu nee; a region uf giuom and honor.— As for Britain, had not melted dow blast chilled their philanthropy . and zeal. He exhorted them to proceed in their generous course, to invite all around them to become, according to their opportunities, the associates of their labours, to transmit the benefits of christian exertion emanating from christian principles, to their children and their- children's children ; he hoped also that following gene- rations would abound in this work of God, till years should cease to revolve, and the apocalyptic angel, setting his right foot upon the sea and his left foot upon the earth, should lift up his hand to heaven, and swear by Him that liveth for ever and ever, that time should be no longer." After the Resolutions bad passed unanimously, Lord Carysfort expressed his desire that this meeting should not separate without his stating his cordial approbation of the measures proposed for adoption. The circumstances of the w orld are such at present, as to promise more success than has hitherto attended endeavours of this kind. The scourge of war, the destruction of many kingdoms, and the dangers which threaten those that remain, must impress the minds of thinking men with the vanity of human greatness, the folly of its wisdom, and the inefficacy of its counsels. This nation has long stood on a lofty eminence ; it has resisted the gigantic usurpation of the enemy, not so much by force of arms, as by- maintaining a reverence for God, and a reliance on his pro- tection; not presuming to boast of strength or merit, but ever looking to him to dispose all our affairs according to his wis- dom. Not to go into all the topics w hieh this occasion would naturally suggest, permit me to make one observation, that no policy is so good as true religion. We are all children of one Common Father ; he has not given to his children different rules for their direction; no, he has given but one, and that for all mankind ; the Bible contains a code of laws for the w hole human race. This undertaking, w hich we are met this day to patronize, seems to be dictated by the true spirit of charity liy which the Saviour of mankind wished to connect all the world. What can be more pleasing than to see the Bible held out without distinction of parties or languages? what can be a higher aim than to connect men in brotherly- love? May the time soon arrive when all those disputes, certainly not proceeding from the spirit of religion, which have so long agitated the minds of men, shall for ever cease, and harmony and peace prevail! The Rev. J. rope, vicar of Great Staughton, having moved thanks to his Grace the Duke of Manchester for having ac- cepted the office of President, stated, that, from a calculation he had made,' he was convinced that so far from injuring or interfering with the Bartlett's Buildings Society, the estab- lishment of the Bible Society had very much tended to increase her funds and the number of her members— he had been a member of that ancient society for many years, and rejoiced in the good they were enabled to do, but saw no reason why he should not also aid the exertions of the Bible Society, in recommendation of which, instead of using his own language, lie begged leave to read the late venerable and pious Bishop of London's sentiments on it, as recorded by Mr. Hodgson in his Life of that- prelate: " The Bible Society is now well- known and firmly established, and has completely triumphed over all the Attempts made lo destroy it. None of those secret dark designs, none of those plots and conspiracies to subvert the establishment and devour both the shepherds and their flocks, which were so confidently predicted by a certain set of men as the inevitable effect of this society, have yet been discovered in it.— It is in fact much better employed. It goes on quietly and steadily in the prosecution of its great object, and pays no sort of regard to the sneers and cavils of its intemperate opponents." In another passage of still later date he says, " that he cannot but add, in justice to this society, which has been so much opposed, misrepresented, and traduced, that all the important works, in which it has been engaged, have been carried on with the utmost harmony and unanimity ; without any difference of opinion; without the slightest symptom of any hostile or treacherous design against the church ; and without any other idea upon their minds, but that of extending, as widely as possible, the knowledge of the Christian Scriptures. The Bishops of Durham and Salisbury attended several of their meetings, and were delighted with the decorum, calmness, and good temper, with which their proceedings were conducted. In short, all the apprehensions to which this society has given rise, are now found to be but vain terrors; and all the prophecies of the mischief and evil that would result from it, are falsified by facts. It is rising uniformly in reputation and credit, gaining new accessions of strength and revenue ; and attaching to itself more and more the approbation and support of every real friend to the church and to religion." The Rev. James Arrow, Dissenting Minister, of Godman- chester rose for the purpose of seconding the motion which had just been proposed, but whether he should do any thing more than second it, was with him a question of difficulty.— He ob- served, there are circumstances which transform apology into an evidence of pride ; yet, there are situations which we may oc- casionally occupy, when to re/ use apology would be to betray ignorance, arrogance, and presumption.— To avoid such an ex- posure, he felt himself bound to appeal to the candour of the meeting; because, though dignity, eloquence, piety, and pre- cision, bad already secured their approbation, be could still fix his eyes upon gentlemen whose vivid imagination, whose capa- cious powers, and whose more extended acquaintance with the history of the Bible Society, would better qualify them for ad- dressing so respectable an assembly. As two mires, however, once cast into a treasury, not only added ( though triflingly) to the general stock, but also drew from the" Searcher of Hearts" an acknowledgment of the principle which influenced the widow's conduct ; so should hit feeble etlorts do but little towards dis- playing the grandeur of the designs, and promoting the sublime object of the institution, they would, lie . trusted, at least de- velope his zeal and sincerity. History and observation teach us, that scarcely any benevolent work was ever carried into effect without exciting opposition.— Striking illustrations of this fact, be observed,, might be drawn from various sources.— I'lace, said be, the attention upon the introduction of Christianity— Fix the eye of admiration on the conduct ot the Saviour " who went about doing good," and detest the principle which led Jews and Pharisees to despise, to misrepresent, to scourge, and to crucify him.— Think of Apostles and Primitive Christians, immured in dungeons, and submit- ting to an unjust confiscation of property. — See the martyrs, bleeding on scaffolds, and burning at their posts of triumph.— Recollect the decided resistance which was made to the glorious reformation, and let it not excite astonishment if opposition assume a menacing aspect, while, in the present age, benevolent institutions abound on every side. To examine the principle which has in every age retarded the progress otjeligious know- ledge, is at the present time unnecessary. Whatever it was in former ages, there are proofs that it is not yet annihilated.— But, said be, that book which this society circulated is by its Divine Author compared to" Fire'VAiiming in every direction, ir must, it will consume every thing combustible. And what is equally desirable, it shall expose to its opponents the errors which they have cherished, and ' warm them into friends. The arguments in favour of the Parent Institution, bad been so forcibly stated, and so elegantly illustrated, that he considered any addition to them as an interference, rather than an Auxiliary. Upon some of the effects, therefore, of a general distribution of the word of God, he chose rather to dwell.— Here he specified some ot the interesting consequences, more particularly as they stand connected with persons of different'classes, and of .. various religious denominations, lie then said, the Bible was a book universally interesting, and the society a blessing to the human race. Reason and humanity required therefore, that a strenuous effort should be made to furnish the world with a revelation, the abridged contents of which are, " Glory to God in the highest, on Earth Peace, gsod will towards Men."— Who then, he asked, that feels the glow of philanthropy, could with- hold his patronage from the British and Foreign Bible Society ? Let us then, he said, never lose sight of tne magnitude ot itie object, nor suffer ourselves to look at discouragement but with a; view to closer union, and greater exertion. Man, though an heir of immortality, is by nature ignorant and sinful. The sons relinquish their dishonest practices— Africa's savage clanr shudder at their former brutality— The frozen children of the northern pole, accustomed to ascend the rugged steep to hail tilt- return of the sua, would ( in the absence ot the orb ot day,) be cheered with the rays of ths ^ un of Righteousness — While Bri tain ( reviewing what sire had been the instrument of accom- plishing,) would find her peace like a " River, and her Righ teousness as the Waves of the Sea." He. concluded by observing, that the Bible ( without note or comment) was " the Sword of the Spirit," which would van- quish its enemies without shedding their blood. On Earth. Men would chant ths Angels' Song, " Glory be to God in the Highest," and Heaven resound with Hallelujahs, " The Lord God Omnipotent reigneth." The Rev. Thomas Bourdillon, vicar of Fenstanton, then pro- posed the thanks of the meeting to those noblemen and gentlemen who had accepted the office of Vice- presidents of the society, and he could not refrain from proposing those thanks in a par- ticular manner to a n > ble Lord ( Eail Carysfort) who had no; only acceded to their request in becoming one ot their Vice- pre- sidents, but had also expressed in so dignified and iinpiessive a manner his approbation of the institution then formed. With respect to the nature and objects of that institution, they had been so ably stated and defended by others, it was unnecessary for him to say any thing upon that head. He could not forbear however calling the particular attention of the meeting to the extract which had been read by the Rev. James Pope, from the Rev. R. Hodgson's Life of the late venerable Bishop of l. ondon: a testimony so strong and decisive, that he trusted it would of itself be sufficient to do away any doubt or dissatisfaction which might be entertained respecting the subject of that meeting. Rev. J. More/ 1, a Dissenting Minister at St. Neots, rose to second the resolution just proposed, not asa mere matter of form, but from a heart- felt sense of gratitude to those noblemen and gentlemen who had honoured the society ( constituted this day) with their patronage and sanction. It an individual, littleknown to the county, but whose heart was deeply interested in the important object for which they were then assembled, might be permitted tor a moment to engage the attention of that nume- rous and highly respectable meeting, he would presume to add his warmest congratulations to those which had been already so eloquently expressed, on the formation of an institution which could not fail to reflect the highest honour on the county of Huntingdon. They had not, it was true, the distinguished honour of leading the illustrious train. Several other counties, asid especially the adjacent ones of Bedford and Cambridge, had recently set them noble and animating examples. But they had at least the satisfaction of following hard after their steps, and the unanimity of feeling expressed by that assembly, dis- tinctly proclaimed their determination to emulate— to rival ( he u- ed the term in no invidious sense), to rival their zeal and liberality. After the luminous detail which had been just given of the operations of the British and Foreign Bibie Socicty, by those who were best acquainted with its proceedings, it would be both unnecessary and unbecoming in an individual like himself to enter into particulars. He could not, however, forbear to advert to a circumstance connected with the origin of that important society, which had deeply impressed his own mind, and which, he conceived, was deserving of general attention. He referred fo the time in which the hearts of men were inclined to devise and prosecute this God- like plan. But J few years since the principles of infidelity seemed to be rapidly progressive; not only had a sort of fashionable scepticism obtruded itself into the walks of science— not only did a refined and philosophical species of infidelity prevail amongst many men of taste and letters, and contaminate the pages of some otherwise justly admired writers— but it also assumed a more popular form ; it was re- duced to the level of common and uninformed minds. The ap- prehension of many good men were then excited, lest, the reign of infidelity having commenced, its despotic influence should pervade the globe. But what had been the result of all these mighty efforts to " rase, even to its foundation," the temple of revealed truth' Scarcely were those boasted cbampionsof infidelity cold in their graves— nay some of them were still living— when a novel, an unprecedented institution arose and flourished ( he would venture to affirm) under Divine auspices; an institution whose express and exclusive 6esign was to circulate through the world that sacred volume which they had laboured with such unhallowed zeal to blot out from the earth, an institution which had achieved more towards the attainment of that valuable end in the short space of eight years, than had been previously ac- complished in almost as many cen. Hries. Nor was it, he observed, one ot the least gratifying circum- stances connected with the formation of the British and Foreign Bible Society, that it had discovered common ground,— he would rather have said consecrated ground, on which the whole chris- tian world might stand ; on which they might meet and labour together in perfect harmony; without an individual amongst them being required to violate the rights of conscience, or to relinquish his peculiar religious tenets, and even without clash- ing with his private prejudices. It was truly delightful to see both the princes and peasants of the land— those of noble and those of plebeian birth, rallying round the standard of revelation: to observe that the vehemence ot party political feeling was suffered to subside— and the acrimony which had too frequently attended religious dissensions was forgotten ; while the work of God proceeded with a zeal bearing some proportion ( however small) to the magnitude ot the design, and an unanimity which augured well for Britain, tor Europe, for the world. He did not hesitate to avow himself a Protestant Dissenter, but though conscientiously such, he would venture to express his firm conviction, that the ministers and members of the Church of England could in no way more effectually promote her best interests than by furthering the designs ot that society. Never, he was persuaded, had such a libel on that church escaped the lips of any one of the sectaries, as had lately been more than intimated by some of her own unnatural children, viz. that the circulation of the pure word of God without note or comment endangered her, and that those Scriptures stood in need of a corrective. Far from conceiving it possible that this would affect her security, it could not fail to strengthen her a. thousand fold. Nor would he suppress his honest and fjrm persuasion, that if such a spirit of hallowed zeal and christian liberality had been displayed by her prelates and clergy in every former period of her history, as that which hart t- p.- pti, 1 u ftKi- nvci- prl itcMf in When this generation is passed away, and all, that day assembled, should be mouldering in the dust, lis prayed tint their posterity might ari. se and embark with encreasing energy in Ihis sacred cause, till the kingdoms of this " world should become the kingdoms ot our Lprdar. dof his Christ." The Rev. F. CalJer, a preacher in the irfethodist connexion, stated, that the duty of seconding this motion devolved upon him, and while conscious of t he deficiency ot his talents to give strength to the cause, or exhibit the excellencies ot the institu- tion, either by the power of eloquence, or the force of reasoning, he might be allowed to express those feelings which influenced his mind on that occasion, by saying, that he should, to the latest period of his life, consider it as one of the happiest cir- cumstances that ever engaged his attention in being called upon this day to associate in this glorious cause. But that which yielded him additional satisfaction, was the order adopted in the proposal of the various motions. The attentive ooserver had undoubtedly noticed, through the whole, that the Churchman rises to move, and is immediately followed by the Dissenter. What did this intimate to the contemplative and pious mind? Why— that the joyful period was not far remote, when Fphraim should not envy Judah, and Judah should net vex Ephraim ; but, laying aside party ditferencesand animosity, all should meet Our Bible informed him of his condition, and was adapted to remedy every moral defect. Let then the Priest and the Levitc unfeel- ingly pass by the ignorant, wounded sufferer: the Bible Society, like the good Samaritan, shall bind up his wounds, and send him on ljis way, " rejoicing in hope of the Glory of God." He rejoiced,' that the Scriptures were already translated into a variety of languages, and felt encouraged to hope, there, would soon be neither speech nor tongue where their voice would not be heard. The most glorious consequences might be confidently anticipated.— In Britain everv cottage would, he hoped, become the residence of religion, and every house a Temple for God— Distant nations would feel the force of truth, " and the dark places of the earth be irradiated by the light of life.— That Turkish Mosque which occupies the spot once adorned by the Jewish Temple, be abandoned, andthespell of Mahometan delu- sion be broken— The errors of Confucius be exploded, Juggernaut ( that Dagon of the East,) be hurled to the earth, no more to rise, no more to crush the victims of idolatry— The Ganges be saturated with infantile innocence, cry it is enough, and the funeral pile be for ever extinguished by lis waters oi'lifc. Arabia's ferocious of her history, as that which had recently discovered itself in many amongst them, and which had chiefly been brought into action by the Bible Society, there would not have been one Dis- senter where now there are a thousand. So long as such lovely features should animate her countenance, and such truly chris- tian benevolence characterise her spirit, even those who, from conscientious motives, wereinduced to withdraw from her com- munion, would still ardently desire her welfare, anil unitedly pray on her behalf, " Peace be within thy walls and prosperity within thy palaces." Samuel Knight, Esq. ( late of Milton,) then called the atten- tion of the meeting to an address of a learned Professor, which he found had been industriously circulated in the county of Huntingdon. The solid reasoning, ingenious illustration, and pungent wit displayed in this gentleman's speech, are already before the public in the form of a distinct pamphlet. I? would otherwise have occupied a distinguished place in the report of the proceedings of this interesting day. The Rev. .7, M. Longmire read the names of the gentlemen nominated for the committee, and said though an obscure indivi- dual ministering in a small parish, he rose to congratulate the county of Huntingdon, and bear his testimony to the glorious cause in which it was this day engaged. A s a member and minister of the establishment, he conceived himself to be promoting her best interests this day in co- opc- ratir. g ( however feebly) with this numerous and respectable assembly. When the spirit was poured from on high on the day of Pentccost, men of various languages heard in their own tongues the wonderful works of God. And now they were met to promote the propagatiop of the Word ot God in every clime under Heaven. But many objections are urged against this society. Want of support could not with propriety be objected, for all orders and ranks in society had concurred in this noble cause The university of Cambridge had lately called forth the munificence of her Royal Chancellor, Ministers of State, and Ministers of Religion ; men of opposite parties in politics and religion, joined together with cordiality • the nobility and gentry then present encouraged their expectations ot success. It was said by some that the Bible alone ought not to be circulated without the Prayer Book, by Churchmen. He begged leave to bear his public testimony against such a sentiment. Let not any human composition be put into competition with the inspired Word of God. They knew by whom the Apocrypha was placcd on the same footing with the Bible, but he trusted they would be backward in following the example of the Papists. Many objected to them that they were doing injury to the vene- rable Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, but the fact was sufficiently disproved by the increase of the funds of that society — 11 had been excited to holy jealousy, and awakened out of sleep as a giant refreshed with wine. The combination of such jarring materials was objected to. The union of Christians ot every nameand denomiriatioa, was tohis mind a reason for expecting the greater success. It was a mighty engine, ot which our forefathers knew nothing; an engine which he verily believed would move the world : before which idolatry and superstition would fall to the ground, as the Idol Dagon before the Ark of Jehovah. They livedm atime when the nations of the earth were shaking; the continent of Europe had been overwhelmed by the gigantic power of France. Britain had proved the asylum of liberty, and the support of true reli- gion. The earthquake had shaken, but not overturned our happy land. When he surveyed her, resisting honourably Gallic en- croachment, and spreading the everlasting Gospel to the ends of the earth, his hopes rose above his fears. He was encouraged to think that Ms country would not be utterlyoverwhelmed. This maritime and commercial nation would be, he expected, the instrument of waiting the blessings of salvation to all nations. Had she not already conveyed the Word of I- ife wherever her commerce had extended > She had dashed away the gal ling chains of the oppressed African, and would, he doubted not, deliver him under Cod from the far worse thraldom of idolatry and iniquity. The Bible Society reminded him of the waters that ( lowed from the sanctuary in Ezekiel'svision. At the end of the first year little more than « £ 500 were collected. The waters were only up to the ancles. After five years several Auxiliary Societies were formed. The phenomenon of a Roman Catholic Bible Society appeared, and the funds amounted to above =£ 1,000. The waters were up to the knees. The sixth year beheld Ame- rican Societies starting up, besides many at home, and the funds increased to £' 27,000. The waters were up to the loins. In the last year seventeen new Auxiliary Societies at home, and ten American Societies arose, and the amount of the Socisty's revenue was =£ 33,000. When he further considered the torrent rolling rapidly from county to county, sweeping down all opposition before it, it was surely become a river toswim in, a river that could not be passed over, and would, he confidently expected, become a boundless ocean, and in the language of inspiration, the know- ledge of the Lord cover the earth as the waters cover the sea. He concluded with an earnest wish for the welfare of his around one general standard, and unanimously proclaim God is King in Zion." George James Gordon, Esq. having nominated the Treasurer and Secretaries, The Rev. J. Crisp, of St. Ives, seconded the resolution by saying— He felt himself called upon to give his testimony in favour of the great design for which that assembly had been convened. A testimony feeble indeed ! but feeble is every feel- ing, every exertion, and every instrument when compared with the mighty object which they were then met to promote; but of this they w'ere assured, that this object is so vast and excellent that its glories cannot be diminished, however insignificant the means employed in its support. If any proof were needed of the value and efficacy of that sacred word which they were labour- ing to disseminate, it would be sufficient to observe the inter- esting spectacle which then presented itself. That and every previous meeting, the efforts then made, and every former ex- ertion, demonstrated most decisively the excellence of the Scrip- tures: for these writings themselves excited the ardour with which the Bible Society promoted their circulation; they cherished the hopes by which that society was stimulated, they infused the zeal by which it was inspired. A book which produced these effects— a book which could unite such numbers differing widely in rank and character, ot manners and habits,- of religious views and religious feelings, the most diversified— nee- led no recommendation. It was the peculiar excellence of the Bible Society that it accomplished more than any institution had yet been able to effect. It imparted the light of life to those regions on which the Sun of Righteousness had nevei shed his beams; on which no light had ever shone but the common light of day. It penetrated those climes which no foot had ever visited, but the foot of the stranger urged thither by ambition by want, by curiosity, or patriotism. But the Bible Society acted from far higher motives than these. It had no ambition but the ambition of diffusing that happiness of which the Scrip- tures are the source; it felt no wants but those which its own charity created; it had no curiosity but the laudable curiosity of searching for objects to which its labours may be directed ; it owns no country in distinction from every other, it embraced within its arms of benevolence all nations, and kindred, and people, and tongues.— An ancient philosopher deemed it practi- cable to construct a machine by which he could move the whole earth, if another globe could be found on which this machine could rest. That was but the vast conception of a great mind.— But something like that conception was realized by the efforts of the Bible Society. Here we see a vast machine set in motion, a moral lever, which, by its operations, produces effects re- sembling those on account of which some Christian Champions ot old were exposed to the chargeof " turning the world upside down."— They had been urged by a Noble Lord, in terms of impressive eloquence and solemnity, and in a manner evincing the dignity of a pious mind, to direct their views to that Being who is the supreme disposer of all events. This they could do with confidence in the present cause. If it were of man, it would'come to nought; if of God, it could not be overthrow n ; and that it was the cause of God was testified by the gradual augmentation of its influence, and the widely extending range of its operations: by the pious prayers, the earnest endeavours oi its supporters, and by the tears of gratitude which their exer- tions had caused numbers to shed : that it was the causeot God would be shown in a future day, when multitudes surrounding the Throne of God would adore and praise him for the laboursof the Bible Society, and perhaps would remember with gratitude the exertions of that day.— That society possessed a principle of internal animation, it could not decay, it would live and flourish. Its exertions were great, but these exertions would only'give increasing force to its movements, and increasing skill in con- ducting them. Its expenditures were enormous, but these ex penditures were like the evaporation of water from the ocean.— They did not exhaust; they would be showered down again and would swell the source from which they proceeded. He con- cluded with expressing his earnest desire that God would give prosperity to his own cause— that this fine vigorous plant which he hoped the hand of God had reared, might continue to strengthen and flourish, till it became like a wide- spreading tree, under which all the'nations of the earth might rest insecurity and peace. The Rev. J. K. Martyn rose to express, in his own name, as well as in that ot his worthy colleague, his deep sense of the honour conferred upon them by being appointed Secretaries to this noble institution.— He could not help congratulating the friends of religion on the glorious Occasion of the present very respectable meeting : and called upon them to revert, by way ot • contrast, to what took place in France within the memory of . most present, when the infamous Dupont had the audacity to declare in the face of the National Assembly, and that with impunity, nay with almost universal applause, what the fool has only said in his heart, that 1 there is no God.' Could we re- member the apprehensions not long since entertained, lest that flood of infidelity and atrocious wickedness should overspread our own land, and not rejoice that instead of witnessing such scene's, the men ot Huntingdon had a glorious opportunity this day of rolling away from their town any reproach which might attach to it for having given birth to the Author of the Age of Reason ? I cannot but wish, he proceeded, to bear my feeble testimony to the peculiar excellencies ot this society.— It honours the Bible as the book ot God, a book fully adequate to accom- plish its intended effect, and to make its own way without the addition of any human explanations. It afibrds aground on which Christians, however differing in many things of inferior importance, may take their stand, view, and become acquainted with each other. What distorted images do not men form of those who differ from them, when separated by modes of wor- ship, and under the guidance of prejudice >— I have heard that when the British troops visited Portugal in the days of Queen Anne, the students of Salamanca, having always been accustomed to consider heretics as devils, came out expecting to see our soldiers armed with horns and hoofs Something of the same kind takes placeamong the various denominations of Protestants — but bring them together and they discover that they are men and brethren— they unite as we do this day in the promotion of a truly great and glorious cause. May He " who has caused the Holy Scriptures to be written for our learning, grant that we may so hear them, read, mark, learn, ar. d inwardly digest them, that by patience and comfort of his holy word, we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which he has given us in Jesus Christ his Son." J. Hammond, Esq. in a speech of considerable talent, de- scribed the influence of Christianity upon society at large, and argued from it, the importance of giving the widest possible circulation to the Holy Scriptures. Fie took a survey of the Christian Church throughout its successive periods, and con- cluded with proposing the thanks of the meeting to the London Secretaries. could bequeath to his children, when his own head pressed his dyms pillow.

Their cause vvas the cau- e of God, and the mag- nitudes its success their ample ' reward. The thanks of the meeting to Lord Viscount Hinchingbrook. for his able and impartial conduct in the chair were then moved by Torkington, Esq, seconded by Sir James Duberley, and carried unanimously.

We had considerable arrivals of English Wheat for this dty's market, and likewise sound cargoes of Foreign, the latter amounting to about 4,000 quarters ; with this supply, piices declined 2s. and 3s. per quarter, with the customary ex- ception, however, of a few select samples sold earlv reaching nearly last week's currency. Barley was here likewise in sufficient supply, and prices also rather lower. Malt, on the contrary, fully maintained its value. In White and Grey Peas, and the two descriptions of Beans, we had little- altera- tion. Although with but few fresh arrivals of Oats, yet the remainders on hand were considerable, and hence prices were lower, save only in the disposal of very prime samples, and which maintained the terms of this day se'nnight.

Now on taking a retrospective view of what I heard by that good, honest- hearted old gentleman the Dean of Carlisle, when, says he, nothing can give me more heartfelt satisfaction than to shake hands with dissenters whenever I can, especially on the present occasion, viz. that of spreading christian knowledge the world over, through the medium of the Bible, and that Bible alone, under the consideration of thoughts like these, together with the evidence we have now heard, if this - will not arou-' e the silence of> Quaker— what will > making even thick lip'd musing melancholy gather up her face into a smile before she is aware, nor is this all; have we not the first men of the kingdom and county to patronize our cause' it would be needless tor me to say that it is of no consequence whatever, in what net fish are caught so that they are but caught.— Then 1 say they are caught — you are caught— I am caught— by the Bible Society— the net of the Gospel.

What must those christians feel who oppose this glorious work ?— feel— they can only feel themselves as dwa/ ts in religion. Permit me to make one observation more, and that is, lie that givcth to the poor lendeth to the Lord; and I say he that giveth to the Bible Society doth likewise; as you like your security, so give. W. B. then addressed the London Secretaries— And vou, my friends, who are more particularly engaged in this noble cauie, permit me to address you in the language of our society ,: And you, my friends, who lately were and are The sweet endear'd companions of my life, Ah! may we long each others blessings share, Sweeten each sorrow, intermix each joy, With unity ot spirit soar above These transitory things, and as we rise Together drink the well- refined wine.

Join Owen, in a concluding speech, congratulated the meeting on the ample, and eloquent discussion, which had taken place. He rejoiced particularly in the testimony to the merits of this society, which had been quoted from the Life of the late venerable Bishop of London, written by the Rev. R. Hodgson. He had himself not only been in the employment of that distinguished prelate, but it would cheer the evening of his life to reflect that he had ( unworthy as he was) stood high in his confidence. It was also his privilege to be equally distinguished by several of those prelates who were at once the ornament and support of this noble institution.
