I TRICE bdry. ( puperand print 3( i Sunday and Tuesday's Posts. LONDON, TUESDAY, Jan. 21. THE Bulletin respecting his Majesty's health, issued on Sunday last at St. James's, was as follows:— " Windsor Castle, Jan. 18. " His Majesty lias had a considerable increase of liis dis- order within the last week." We regret to state that our afflicted Monarch has had a considerable increase of his disorder during the last week. It became so alarming on Saturday morning last, that all the ordinary Physicians were desired by the. Queen's Council to continue their attendance on his Majesty's person After the Queen's Council broke up, however, on Saturday, his Majesty fell into a tranquil sleep, which lasted without interruption for six hours. Yesterday morning lie appeared materially refreshed, ate his breakfast with appetite, and had again a composed sleep; and the Physicians had the happiness to see liis Majesty's wonderful constitution again recover itself from the shock. Tier Majesty's Birth- day was celebrated at Windsor in a private manner on Saturday. The Dukes of York, Kent, and Cambridge, " and the Duchess of York, dined with their Royal mother on the occasion. An Extraordinary Gazette was published yesterday, con- taining the official details of the reduction of Gen. Jansens, and the surrender of all the minor settlements of the enemy in Java and the adjoining islands. We have given in the last page the most important of these documents. The reinforcements which it is in contemplation to send to Portugal amount to 7,000 men: so'that on the resumption of hostilities, there will be a gallant, well appointed, and more numerous force in that quarter than at any preceding period of the Peninsular war. It is computed that the British effective force in Portugal will by Spring exceed 45,000 men. Yesterday Paris Journals arrived to the 10th instant The Moniteur contains the official reports of the late affair in Basque Roads, in which five boats belonging to the Colossus and Conquestador were unfortunately taken.— There is no news in these papers respecting the Spanish I'eninsula. The IIIoniteur dwells with peculiar satisfaction npon the rccent losses sustained by our Navy in the North Seas. Mr. Yorke stated in the House of Commons on Friday, " that the Hero was lost by one of those miscalculations or errors in navigation, inseparable from difficult seas and bad weather— that it seems her Officers thought they were near the English shore, at the moment when she struck on that of Holland; and perished under circumstances nearly similar to those which la- t year occasioned the loss of the Minotaur.— The case of the St. George and Defence was different; the Admiral in the Baltic had orders not to delay the last convoy homeward, on any account, beyond the 1st of November; though he had a discretion to come away earlier, if there should be occasion. Admiral Reynolds sailed accordingly from llano on the 1st of November, but was obliged by gales of wind to put back three times, and lie finally was not able to leave that anchorage before the middle of November. On the 15th, when in the Belt, the convoy met another heavy gale of wind, in which a large merchant ship nearly broke from her anchors, and un- happily fell athwart the St. George, which by this accident was driven it- shore, and lost her rudder, and was forced to cut away her masts. By great exertion, however, she was saved and carried tu Wingoe Sound, where she was refitted as well as circumstance's would admit, and had jury- masts set up; after which, in the opinion of the officers, she was quite capable of the voyage home. Had i, t been otherwise, the Admirnt would have shifted his fla^, and would even have been justified in destroying the ship, and conveying her crew in others to England. Two ships of the line, the Gressty and Defence, were appointed to attend the St. George, and they all sailed on the 17th December, having till then been detained by contrary winds, and had cleared the Sleeve, when, unhappily, a tremendous gule of wind came on from the most unfavourabe point, and on the morning of the 24th, the lamentable catastrophe of the. St. George and Defence occurred, the Cressey having, with great difficulty, escaped the same fate." On Friday in the House of Commons, the Report of the Committee on the King's Household being brought up, Mr. Creevey objected to part of the money, intended to support the new arrdngernents, being drawn trom the droits ot Admiralty.— These droits, he maintained, belonged to the people, and not to the Crown; for it was preposterous to believe that when Parlia- ment settled ,£ 8i) 0,000 per annum on his present Majesty, as the amount ot his Civil List, they could have it in contemplation as a possible event, that there should, by any possibility, be a fund ofmore than eight millions ot money at the sole disposal of the King and his Minister. There was also another fund to which he wished to call the attention of the House, and that arose from the per cent. Leeward Island duties. These, he would maintain, were the right of the public, not of the Crown, and ought to be annually brought into the Exchequer. They vere given up to the public by Queen Anne, by George I and 11, and could not of right belong to his present Majesty. It was too much to be feared that Ministers were in the habit of dividing this sacted property of the Crown among their families, their dependants, and parliamentary supporters. — Mr. Brand agreed with the remarks of Mr. Creevey, and said, he should strenuously oppose in every stage the additional grant ot ^£ 70,000 per annum, to support the Royal Establishments.— Mr. Perceval denied the charge of Mr. Creevey, that the money alluded to had ever been given to Ministers and ttieir dependants; not one farthing had ever been received by him.— After some further re- m. irksfrom Mr. Yorke, Mr. Freemantle, and Mr. Sheridan, the Report was brought up, and the Resolutions agreed to. The House having resolved itself into a Committee of Supply, Mr. Yorke rose to move the vote of seamen for the present year, which, under all the circumstances of Comparison between the two, he conceived should be just the same as tlut ot last year.— He moved, therefore, that 145,000 men, including the marines, be \ oted for the sea service of me present year. He woujdklso move, that =£ 3,343.375 be granted for their' pay ; =£ 4,5* 0( 0, for provisions; =£.'), 777,000 for the wear and tear of ships; and s£ 647,750 for iht ordnance of the navy: which sums were ac- cordingly granted. Mr. Wharton then moved a variety of grants, which, after drawing forth some observations from Mr. Tierney, & c. on the necessity of economy, were agreed to. Mr. Ryder rose, pursuant to notice, to call theattention of the House to the state of the nightly waich of the metropolis. In doing this, the Right Hon. Secretary adverted to the late murders, and to the evident increase of crimes of late in the metropolis; from tire best consideration, however, which he had given to the case, he was ot opinion, that instead of proposing any measure entirely new, he thought that it would be sufficient to fortify and strengthen the principles which had been hitherto laid down tor the establishment of a nightly watch, correcting at the same time those abuses for which the crimes now complained of en- tirely proceed. Instead, therefore, of proposing any new mea- sure to the House, he moved that a Committee be appointed to make enquiry into the statcof the nightly watch of the metro, polis.— Sir Samuel Romilly thought the proposed remedy to- tally inefficient. The present erroneous system of punishment was one cause of the increase of crimes ; and one of the worst kinds of punishment was the imprisonment of young persons with hardened offenders, in places where their morals were con- taminated, and from which they were afterwards let loose on society. — Mr. Abercromby was confident, the only effectual mode of proceeding was to institute an enquiry into the causes of the dreadful evils ; Kit now exis'ed. He therefore moved as an Amendment, • That tile Committee should also enquire into the state of the police, as well as t fie watch.' This Amendment, after a conversation ot considerable length, between Sir Samuel Komilly, Lord Cochrane, Sir F. Burdett, Mr. Sheridan, & c. tvas ultimately agreed to, and a Committee was appointed. The Gentleman who put a period to his life on Thursday morning, is Mr. James Esdaile, of Upminster, Essex, and not, as has been erroneously stated, a partner in the banking- house'of Sir James F. sdaile & Co. A Jury, impannelled at Guildhall, on Thursday, to try a ship cause, remained 25 hours without agreeing to a verdict; the defendant was ultimately obliged, from the illness of one of them, to withdraw a juror; hence the cause is undecided : eleven were of one opinion, but they were unable to bring their foreman, Mr. Barclay, to coincide with them. Trial of Mr. Walsh.— The trial of this person, at the Old liailey, commenced on Monday at teno'clock, and did not terminate until near four, when the jury brought in a ver- dict, finding Mr. Walsh tfuilty of grund larceny, which will subject to transportation for either seven or I t years.— The N Attorney- General prosecuted, and the defence was entrusted to Mr. Sergeant Best and Mr. Garrerd, it is unnecessary to. euter into any details of the particulars disclosed in the evidence of Sir Thomas Plomer and his Solicitor, as they have been for some time before the public.— On the part of the defendant, Mr. Sergeant Best took several legal ob- jections, addressed to Sir A. Macdouald, in which he endeavoured to shew, that the offence of Mr. Walsh amounted only to a breach of trust, as lie had applied the money placed in his hands bv the prosecutor to other pur- poses. He argued, that if the defendant was found guilty, there was not a banker in London who might not be placed in the same situation, inasmuch as the money of his cus- tomers was entrusted to him, and he applied it in any way he thought most advantageous.— Sir A. Macdonald was, how- ever, of opinion, that the intention of the defendant must betaken into view, and so he left it to the jury. If they were of opinion that the intention of the defendant was to defraud Sir Thomas Plomer, they would find him guilty: if they thought otherwise, they would acquit him. The jury, with little hesitation, found Mr. Walsh guilty.— The de- fendant was much affected during the whole proceedings, and his grief was so excessive, particularly when his letters to his wife were read, that he was twice compelled to leave the court. The decision, however, he seemed to hear with becoming fortitude. CAMBRIDGE, Jan. 17.

THE Commissioners of the Stamp Office, convinced by the official Acts produced by Mr. B. BE FORT, that he is solely appointed by Mr. F. CHARDRON to have and hold in Lon- don, tile only and general Depot for the Sale of the KAU MEDIC1NALE DE HUSSON, and on account of the Attes- tation of some of the most eminent Physicians upon the welt known Efficacy of that exiraoidinary Medicine, have granted him the particular Favour of having a Plate engraved purposely for the Stamp, with his Name and the Direction of the Depot. Mr. li. Befort, in Order to fulfil the Object he had in view, to put the Public on its Guard against all spurious Compo- sitions, has thought it expedient, for the Safety of the Comi munity at large, as well as his own, to give a particular Form to the Bottles ot Medicine now vending at the Depot. In order to prevent that fermenting Medicine from uncorking the Bottle in Summer, the Cork is fastened to the Neck of the Bottle by a Bitot Thread, and covered with Bladder- Skin.— Secure as they now are, Mr. B. Betort will no more, on any Pretext whatever, take back any of the Medicine, when once out of the I) ep& t. The Neck of the Bottle is enveloped in Paper, so as to render it of the same Size as the Body of it; over the'Whole there is a Wrapper of white Paper pasted, on which are printed the follow- ing Words— 41 The Genuine Eau Medicinalc Je Husson''— The Stamp is black, on it is the Inscription " B liefort, 18, Sr. Jamcs's- Streei"— the Crown covers the Cork, and the End- meet at the Bottom of the Bottle, and over them is a red Sen, on which are the following Words—" Only Depot, 18, St. James's- Street, London. B. Befort. By all these minute, though necessary and expensive Precau- tions, Mr. B. Belort is in h pes of having quieted the Fears of those Persons who abstained from taking the Eau Medicinale de Husson, and preferred suit'- ring from the excruciating Pains ot the Gout, to the certain Riskot endangering their, Health as well as their Lives, by making Use of ihose spurious Compositions, which have for the last six Months infected most Parts of the United Kingdom.

American Papers arrived at a late hour this mowing to the lfitb December. They were brought by a vessel from Cbarfaton, which she left on the- 28d nlf.^ Their contents are ( dost important indeed. The. Committee of Foreign nidations, ih the House of Representatives, have declared it to be their unanimous opinion, that the encroachments of this country upon the rights of Am'erica were such as to " DEMAND WAR AS THE ONLY ALTERNATIVE TO OBTAIN JUSTICE." liv a Mail arrived from Malta, Gibraltar Papers to the 2d instant have been received, at which time nothing new had occurred. Great Confusion is said to have prevailed in the French army, the oilicers and soldiers mutually re- proaching each other. The following is stated to be a correct account of the forces which Laval and Barrois had at St. ltoch and Los liarrios during their stay there, viz. 8,500 foot and 400 horse, under Laval, 4,500 loot and 200 horse, under Barrios. They have effected a junction with a division of 5,000 men stationed at Vegar; but it was reported that Laval had subsequently proceeded tolquateja on his way to Granada or Malaga.— They contain the Or. ler of the Day of General Mr. ittand, dated Messina the 11th November, bestowing the highest praise on a detachment of the 6? d regiment, consisting of 250 men, under the com- mand f>( Major Darley. This detachment, with 50 Royal Murines, lauded from the Imperir. use and the Thames in face of the enemy, who where about 1,000 strong, attacked and carried the position of the enemy, aud repulsed a charge made upon them ; they also took a convoy of nine gun- boats and twenty other harks, in the bay of Palinurus. A Mail from Cadiz arrived this morning with intelligence to the 3d instant. There are no accounts from Valencia later than the tOth ult. The vessel from Denia which arrived on Monday, brought accounts six days later. The Cadiz papers, however, furnish some interesting details. Suchet. has been obliged to detach 5,000 men against the guerillas in Arragon. Several attacks had been made upon • he enemy's works before Valencia, previously to the 9th, and thev had been dislodged from some. There is a rumour of a battle having been fought on the 9th, near Valencia, in which the French lost 14,000 men. This rumour however wants confirmation ; but Suchet's whole force did ndt amount to more than 15,000. A corps of 4,000 men, destined trt reinforce Suchet, which had entered Valencia, is said to have been cut off on the 9th. This, too, is mentioned merely as rumour. By the shin General Porlier, which is arrived off Dover, letters from Coruntia to the 12th inst. have come to hand, siating, th* t nothing had been heard of from the armies, except that General Porlier had been attacked by the French troops, under the command of Bonnet, at Infiesto, on the road to St. Andero; and that the enemy had been repulsed with considerable loss. The activity and success of the guerillas mav be justly estimated by these accounts, which state ( and from good authority) that within a short period, 2,000 French prisoners had been brought in by the parties of this description under Poster and Longa, froui the province of Biscay. The I'reneh continue in Anurias, and were levying con- tributions of money and corn in Gijon and neighbourhood. The inhabitants were considerably distressed in conse- quence; but in other respects they do not complain of ill- treatment. The immense number of deserters from the French armies in Spain became so embarrassing to the Spanish Government, that they requested to send part of them, to England. Among these deserters were about 400, native Frenchmen, Bonaparte's own conscripts, who were perfectly • willing, hut, very properly, not allowed to enter into the British service. They could not in justice be considered as prisoners of tvar. They were, therefore, at their own parti- cular and urgent request, set on shore on the coast of Hol- land, where they hoped to meet with more kindness than if lauded in France. There was not ami g them a single Ger man, Bohemian, Prussian, Wesfphalian, Hanoverian, or Russian. They were native Frenchmen, deserters from the French armies in Spain, where hundreds are every week following their example. The income of the Consolidated Fund for the year ending the 5th January, 1811, was ,£ 42,286,152 18s. lljd.— For the year ending 5th January 1812, £ 40,917,835 18s. 4* d.

The following is a summary of the comparative statement of the population of Great- Britain in the years 1801 and 1811; ordered by the House of Commons to be printed, 17th Jan. 1312 POPULATION, 1801. nd ungenerous reflections had not been misconceived :-- He had • presented the . condition of mankind, destitute ot a Divine revelation, as a state of wretchedness and miseVy.— The Scrip- tures alone were calculated to am.- liorate their condition.— While therefore some,' regardless of tire impoverished and torlorn condition of their fellow- men, like the Priest and Levite mentioned by our Lord, were content to pass bv on the other side, the British and Foreign Bible Society, by putting a Bible into the hands ot the poor, acted the part of the good Samaritan, and poured " m the oil and wine of divine instruction and spiritual consolation. The explanatory remarks of Mr. A. having been greeted with thu decided approbation of the meeting, the Rev. J. Ou- en then came forward, and concluded the meeting, with the following interesting address, delivered in that stile of animated eloquence which characterizes ali his speeches, and which even seemed to have acquired additional force from the temporary obstruction with which it had met: My Lord and Gentlemen— After the manly and perspicuous explanation which we have just now heard, every Gentleman present must, I persuade myself, be satisfied, that the words to which exception have been taken, Were iised without any portisn of that sinister and offensive intention which has been imputed to them. Indeed had they appeared to me, when they dropped from the speaker, to have been intended as a reflection on any minister of the Established Church, however adverse that minister might be to the cause in which we are engaged, I should have thought it my dutv to resent the insinuation, and to call the speaker to order. But 1 felt persuaded that they Were used merely for the purpose of illustration, and the re- spectable objector himself must, I think, by this time, have seen reason to concur in the same persuasion. And why, my Lord and Gentlemen, is it to be presumed that our feelings in what regards the honour of our church and its ministers should be less alive than those of our brethren, who differ from us in the object of our present meeting ? It is not disaffection or indifference to the Established Church which has led us to propose the measures which you have adopted.— No, my Lord and Gentlemen, we have not thus sold ourselves to work wickedness.— As a clergyman, a beneficed and officiating clergyman, I entertain too strong a sense of my professional engagements, and have too deep an interest in the reputation and permanence of the Established Church, to wish its disso- lution or its disgracc. 1 rejoice particularly in the testimony to the merits of this society, which has been quoted from the Life of the late venerable Bishop of London, written by the Rev. R. Hodgson. I have myself not only been in the employment of that distinguished prelate, but it will cheer the evening of my life to reflect that 1 hstve ( unworthy as I am) stood high in his confidence.— I have the honour of standing connected with persons of no mean station in that church, whose views are different from my own on the business ot the present meeting j but that difference ( however to be deplored) has not led to any violation of mutual courtesies, nor I trust to any diminution of mutual respect. No, my Lord and Gentlemen, if I thought the Church was endangered by the steps which, in concert with so many wise and good and great m. n, I am pursuing for the purpose of promoting the circulation of the Scriptures, I would spare myself the painful and hazardous exertions which I am making out of measure and beyond strength ; and strip from my brows, as spurious honours, those laurels wiih which those exertions have been crowned by the gratitude of united Christians, and which 1 did hope would descend as a glorious inheritance to my numerous family, when my head shall have been laid in the dust.— But what is there in the unionof different denominations of Christians Jora cause so unexceptionable as that ol circulating the Bible, which ought to excite the alarm or rouse the oppo- sition of the Established Church? I ask, as an officiating minister of that Church, what is there in its principles or its services which forbids or discourages such an union tor so reli- gious and legitimate pyrpose ? Where am 1 to look for that prohibition or that discouragement ? surely not in the spirit of w - THF.

But where indeed ( expressed Mr. O. with some warmth) would be the wisdom or the propriety of restraint on measures for circulating the Bible ?— What Bible are we circulating > Is it not my trum Bible— the Bible of the church in which I mi- nister ? the Bible which I read by authority from the desk, and which I am commanded t » read and make known to the people : and shall I decline the co- operation of those who would aid me with their money, their zeal, and their influence in circulating my Bible, because they belong to different denominations from my own in the Christian Church!

Huntingdon, January 10.—' Ihe following particulars, which, from a variety of circumstances, where either i milted or imperfectly detailed in the report of the pro- ceedings of the Huntingdonshire Bible Society Meeting, inserted i:> our last paper, we are now able to lay before our readers :— After Mr. William Brown had addressed the assembly, and seconded the resolution ot thanks to the London Secretaries, the Rtv. IV. V aimer, rector of Eynesbury, spoke to the following iffoct:— He expressed the satisfaction with which he had heart some of the sentiments delivered that day, and especially those which had fallen from the lips of that pious and interesting foreigner ( the Rev. E. Steinkoplf) who was an ornament to his country, or to any country. Having said that, he feared he had said all that would be grateful to the assembly then convened, • He then adverted with some degree ot warmth to an expression Used by a formerspeaker ( The Rev. J. Arrow) who, when heal- luded to the Priest and l. eviielhit passed by on the other side, he conceived, and every honest mind in that assembly must alsocon- ceive, evidently referred to that part of the clergy which did not approve of the British and Foreign Bible Society j and ifsuch were the intentions of the speaker ( whose name was unknown to him) be wanted words to express his inellable contempt for such base insinuations. He then proceeded to express his firm ieliar. ee on the merits of Christ, and his belief that the Saviour died for the sins of the whole world— not for a part only, but J'or the whole human race without distinction; and concluded Tvith devoutly offering up his prayer to God, that those persons who had coma forward on that occasion might be as pious as they teemed, and that their iiearts'might be as sincere as their lrioks were demure, and their countenances sanctimonious.— The Rev. Arrow, then rose to explain;— He recalled to the Terollection of the meeting the words be had used in their con- nexion, and appealed both to their candour and understanding, wlit'ther the allusions - which had called lorth sueh uneamlid me in all thiitgi that establishment to which I belong, which can countenance a spirit, in my view of it, so repugnant to the temper of our common Christianity, so adverse to the spiritual unity which ought to be maintained among the divided parts of Christ's Holy Catholic Church. Having said thus much in allusion to the sentiments which had been dropped, I canno' allow the meeting to separate, ex- hausted as we all are by the length into which the business of the day has been carried, without glancing for a few moments at the general object towards which our united exertions have been directed, and at the triumphant issue in which those exertions have terminated.— And here let me call to the recollection of the meeting what a stream ot christian eloquence has been poured forth by different speakers who have addressed you on behalf of this cause. Devoutly do I wish it were in my power to fix in your minds, and impress oh your hearts, the sentiments and feelings which they have severally expressed, and which have afforded us all so rich a gratification. 1 would exhort the young and the aged persons, of each sex and of every rank and persua sion, to treasure up those sacred effusions of truth and charity which have flowed from so many sources: They will form a depot both of instruction and delight which the longest lite will not be able to exhaust. Above all I would commend to the recollection of the meeting the impressive and affecting address of the Noble Lord neat the chair; that Noble Lotd has this day read us all a lesson, which, 1 trust, we shall never forget. — He has brought hither his coronet and laid it at the foot of the cross. — Uhder the pressureot" bodily infirmities, and with the prospect of dissolution before him, he has borne his solemn testimony to the religion of the Bible ; and anticipating its universal dif- fusion through the medium of the British and Foreign Bible Society, he seems to have said " Lord now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace: for mine eyes have seen thy salvation." — Nor can I forbear congratulating the meetingon the harmonious union which has this day been established among the several christians inclosed within the walls of this building ; an union which, while it corrects the spirit of party on all points of mutual difference, confers peculiar honour and advantage on that religion which vvc unitedly profess. Christians no longer satis- fied with their respective portions of their Saviour's divided garment, seem now impatient to throw around them in common that vesture " which was without seam from the top through- out." When I see thisspirit of concord gaining thus rapidly on the christian world; when I see the many facilities so pro- videntially created tor giving to the Scriptures of Truth an extended circulation; when 1 seethe British and Foreign Bible Society acquiring continually fresh accessions of strength and support, and adding from time to time to its Auxiliary Societies both at home and abroad; I seem to behold in this grand insti- tution the instrument of accelerating the accomplishment of prophecy; 1 seem to witness already the fulfilment of that august and animating prediction, " The Lord hath made bare his t holy arm in tht sight of all nations: And all the ends of the earth • halt see lb; Salvation of our G yd."

" Friday rind Saturdays Posts » LONDON, FRIDAY, Jan. ? 4. THE fi- inee Regent will hold a Council ( it Carlton House this day, to prick the Sheriffs for the present year. f. erters friiiy New- York state, that in the confidence of the warlike temper of the Republican authorities, the ships destined to Europe throughout the States ate in progress of arming The House of Representatives has not only deter- mined formally to acknowledge the independence of South America, hut it is in the contemplation of that body to recommend the mission of an organized force, to co- operate with the natives in the recovery of their liberties. Lord Minto has published a proclamation for the civil administration of Java, in which he annexes the Island to the possessions of the East India Company. Yesterday, in the House of Commons, a variety of papers, elucidatory of the Bill before the House relative to J be Royal llonsp hold, were moved and granted, 0n the motion of Mr. Tierney. The Bill was ordered to he read a second time to- morrow, and its merits be further debated ou Monday, on the question for the Chairman to leave the chair. Lord Cochrane rose, pursuant to notice, to move for a copy of a letter from his Royal Highness the Duke of Cambridge, In the Cominander- in Chief, tendering his resignation of the command of the home district. It appeared that tliis com- mand had become a sinecure, although not less tlian =£ 4,200 a year was paid to the General who held it. The object of this inution was to perpetuate the memory of this noble conduct in the Duke, and toexliibit it ai an example to the country. He moved, therefore, for the production of the papers alluded to. Lord Palinerstou resisted the motion as unnecessary, and it was negatived. - Lord Folkestone rose to make his motion respecting nhu « es in the Ecclesiastical Courts, founded on a petition of Mary Ann Dicks, now confined in the gaol of Bristol, where she ha. remained for some years, for refusing to do penance. His Lordship prefaced his motion with a history of the Ecgle- ' fiastical Courts from tile time of William the Conqueror, bv whom these Courts were established, but from what motives he could not conceive, except that of doing away the trial hy Jury, and overthrowing those old laws on which the liberty of England was founded. These Courts had for ages been com- plained of, as teeming with abuses i the persons who presided in thein were mostly, from ignorance, unfit for the office; and the true object of parties who instituted an Ecclesiastical process, was never for the good of the jo- ul ( as the law de- clared), but to gratify the worst passions of the human heart ai'ilice and revenge, and ruin by extortionate costs; it was therefore the duty of tic House to interfere, and check such enormous abuses. He then cited a variety of cases, which fully made out the facts stated, and concluded by moving,— " That a Committee be appointed to enquire into the state of the inferior Ecclesiastical Courts of this country, to consider what abuses existed in the same, and report their opinion to the Home."— A long debate ensued on this motion, between Sir William Scott, Sir J. Nicliol, the Attorney- General, Sir Samuel Romillv, Mr. W. Smith, and Sir J. Newport ; the general sense of the House, however, being, that an altera- tion of the law was highly necessary, Sir William Scott undertook to prepare a Bill for that purpose, and Lord Folkestone, in consequence, withdrew his motion. On the motion for ( he third reading of the Distillery Bill, Hr. Hutchinson strongly disclaimed against the clause pre- venting an intercourse in the sale of spirits between Great JVilain and Ireland, which was a manifest breach in the Art of Union.— M r. Perceval denied that it was a violation of any of the Articles of the Union, either in spirit or even in letter. A thorough conviction, that in the present state of tilings this • would be of great national advantage, was the only induce- ment for the adoption of this measure.— After a few words from Mr. W. Smith and Mr. I). Giddy, the Bill was read a third time; several clauses were added, by way of riders, aud it was then passed. A Special Commission was opened at the Sessions House, Borsfemonger- lane, on Monday, for the trial of the twelve British seamen and marines, found in the service of the ehemv on the capture of the Isle of France. The Lord Chief* Baron, in an eloquent address to the Grand Jury, explained the law as it bore 011 the prisoners; nfter which they retired, and in about three hours returned with true Bills against jhe whole of the twelve. The court then ad- journed to Monday the 3d of February. The Old Bailey Sessions closed yesterday, when sentence of death was passed 011 Sarah Slater, Thomas Kite, George Lister, Thomas Wells, William Fowler, F. d Jones, Thomas Hunt, Mary Carroll, George Skeene, John Clayton, Win.

IISBON Papers reached town last night to the 6th inst. - i The head- quarters ot" the Allied Army remained at Fi'fynjula. General Hill, after some skirmishing with the enemy at Los Novas, whom he defeated with the loss of 25 killed, 20 wounded, and 15 prisoners, entered Merida on the 30th ult. where he found considerable magazines, the enemy having previously retreated. The first arid second regiments of the King's German I. egion, arrived at Lisbon from Cork, on the 2d instant, making an addition of eleven hundred cavalry to the army. It was reported at Lisbon, that Hlake had compelled Suchet to abandon the siege of Valencia, and that Colonel Skerrit had defeated the French near Tariffs. * A Cadiz Mail arrived yesterday, with letters and papers to the 30th of last month. The intelligence from Valencia is not of a later date than to the middle of December, when it was safe.— The private letters from Cadiz are of a very gloomy complexion. The unpopularity of the Cortes, aud the general dissatisfaction manifested at their measures, rendered a political explosion daily more probable. It is the universal opinion that some kind of change must soon take place. The following communication has been made by the Master of the Lord Cochrane, arrived in Torbay : " Thai the Spanish General Lapena had had an engagement with the French, and that General Lapena had defeated them aud taken 1,800 prisoners." The following- letter from Dover, of Jan. 23, is a strong corroboration of the above intelligence: " Arrived in the roads the Brig General Porlier, of and for London, with wool and logwood, from Corunna, aud landed Senor Carlos Moffia. She sailed from Corunna on the 12th instant. A report had been, two days previous to their sailing, in cir- culation, and generally credited, that one'of the Spanish Generals in Castile bad had an action with the French, and. taken .1,800 prisoners.— The name of the Spanish General, nor the time when or wjiere the action took place, Senor Morflia could recollect. Two Heligoland mails arrived this morning. They confirm the account of the shipwrecks of the St. George, and. Defence, with the heart- reuding addition that every map on board the St. George perished, and that only 17 of the crews of the vessels wsecked at the same time, were saved. War, with Russia and France.— The rumour of an ap- proaching war in the North of Europe is still kept up.— Indeed it appears impossible to be avoided, if the sources from which the subjoined accounts are taken can be relied on: Heligoland, Jan. 13 — By a passenger just arrived from the opposite coast, mil who had every means of procuring in- formation, we have been informed, that immense preparations have been making oy the French for sometime, iu the pros- pect of war with " issia. They have purchased, or put in re- quisition, in Ilolstein, ti, 000 head of cattle, and immense quan- tities of grain, which they are conveying into the interior, aud have sent from Hamburgh towards the frontiers of Poland, a numerous train of heavy artillery.— Every regiment is to be provided with five field pieces, anil the plan of the commence- ment of hostilities is so formidable and so far advanced, that it is confidently expected Bonaparte will make himself master of Poland within two months, should the preparations made not strike dismay into the Russian Government, an induce it to accede to the wishes of the French Ruler : every appearance justifies the opinion that Bonaparte had determined upon a war with Russia 12 months ago, and that his negociatious have had for their object only to gain time and temporise, till he was iu readiness to strike a decisive blow. Heligoland, Jan. 14.— Bv late accounts from other parts of the coast we have been informed that a war between Russia ( in conjunction with Prussia) and France is more confidently looked for than ever, and that hostilities may be certainly ex- pected to commence by the beginning of next month. The brave Prussian- General Blucher is, it is said, to have a com- mand in the Russian ariny.— The batteries at Cuxhaven and other parts ort the coast, have been entirely dismantled of their guns, with a view, It is supposed, of preventing them falling into the hands of the English, should circumstances render It necessary to march off all the troops at those stations, to the scene of the expected campaign. The hospitals in Hamburgh are stated to be crowded with sick of the French army, consisting of troops who have been marched thither from Spain, and who are dying from 20 to30 every daj, in consequence of diseases brought on by excessive exertions, fatigue, and famine. The dead are put ill sacks and buried in the sands oil the shores of the Elbe, during the night, to conceal their numbers from the inhabitants. Several regiments have lately been marched from Ham- burgh towards the Prussian frontiers. By every thing we can learn, the Danes have begun to lay aside their rancour and animosity against the English, which they have shewn on every occasion since the rupture, and to perceive and acknowledge that England, in the policy which led to a war with Denmark, was actuated by motives forced upon her by the irresistible ambition of the French Ruler, and the peculiar circumstances of Europe at the time, and dictated hy a wise and prudent regard to self- preservation. ' The Darlington packet, on Wednesday se'nnight, on her passage from Cadiz, in lat. 44. 10. long. 15. 30. fell in with two frigates and a corvette; one. of the frigates chaced the Darlington twelve hours, Two days after the Darlington fell in with his Majesty's ship Surveillante, Sybille, and Spitfire, and was informed by Sjr George Collier, that a French squadron were at sea, and that they chaced Iiiin a few days before, and that having fallen ill with his Ma- jesty's ships then in company, he was going in pursuit of the enemy.

The Dean and Chapter of Peterborough havfe appointed Mr. Edmund Larking, organist of Leek, and late of Litch- field cathedral, to be organist of the cathedral church of Peterborough, in the room of the late Mr. Thomas Knight. ' The Earl of Ormond has purchased Ditchley- house, Oxfordshire, late the seat of Lord Dillon. We understand that the Rector of Barley, in Hertfordshire, by way of shewing his readiness'to promote the free circu- lation of the Bible among the poor, took the opportunity, when he lately gave his annual Christmas donation of bread and soup to his parishioners, of ascertaining what families were wirfiout n llible or Testament, and has sent to purchase a supply ot" them from the Society for promoting Christian Knowledge, which he is now going to distribute at his own expense, among. such householders as may be without one, whether churchmen or dissenters. An opulent member of the Society of Friends, at Spalding, has during the winter privately distributed the carcases of 24 fine sheep among the poor of that town. Yesterday, iu consequence of an order fro n Government, part of the F'rencb Prisoners of war on parole at this place went off for Whitchurch, in Shropshire, and the remainder will follow them in the course of a few days; The pigeon match mentioned in our last, took place in the neighbourhood of Stamford, on Monday i it was won by Creighton, under- keeper to Sir G. Heathcote, who killed four birds out of the five; Strange killed only tivo. Col. Cavendish, the eldest son of Lord George Henry Cavendish, and cousin to the present Duke of Devonshire, was thrown out of his open carriage, on Tuesday se'n- night, in Holker- park- Lancashire, and killed on the spot. He married the eldest daughter of Lord Lismore, a few years ago; and has left three or four children; and was about 28 years of age. He was a Member for Derby. The town of Rickmansworth, in Hertfordshire, long cele- brated for the patriotic and orderly dispositions of its inhabitants, has adopted a most effectual mode of arresting the progress of those nocturnal depredations, now become a matter of such serious consideration throughout the metro- polis and its vicinity. The respectable and opulent trades- men, inhabitants of that town, have formed themselves into a body, for the purpose of patroling the streets, in conjunc- tion with an armed watchman— a certain number to take their turn every night; by which means the duties of this useful institution do not prove very burthensome to any individual, but of solid security to the community at large. The town of Baldock, Ilerts, has lately been infested by a desperate gan£ of thieves.— The house of Mr. Kimpton, baker, in Norton- street, was broke open a few nights since, and robbed of property to a considerable amount. Seven of the gang have since been taken, and committed to the county gaoi. Oil searching the house of one Burgess, druggist, in Norton- street, implements for coining, picklock keys and other implements for nefarious practices, were found, together with a quantity of plate. A trotting match took place on Tuesday, on the Hertford Road, between two galloways, the properties of a Mr. Stanley and Mr. Seviot, a dealer, eight miles, for 100 guineas. Mr. Stanley's galloway won the match by about 25 yards. The winner performed the distance in thirty- two minutes. Thursday morning, as a girl, about seven years of age, ill the houss of Mrs. Owen, of Well- street, Coventry, was stooping to pick a key from out of the ashes, her clothes unfortunately caught fire, by which means she was so shock ingly burnt as to survive the catastrophe only six hours. At the general Quarter Sessions of the Peace for this county, Charles Hill, Sampson Wilding, and Edward Smith for riotously assembling, with divers other persons, in Yel- vertoft, and forcibly rescuing from the stocks Moses Tuni- cliff, lawfully imprisoned therein, were sentenced to be cftn- fined in the house of correction five weeks ; and Elizabeth Bingham, convicted of stealing at Ashley, to he imprisoned in the house of correction one month, and to be privately whipped. At the general Quarter- sessions of the peace, held at Aylesbury, on Thursday last, Mat hew Daroill, aud Joseph Fisher the younger, were sentenced to be transported for seven years"; Christopher Price, to be imprisoned one month and 24 hours in each week in solitary confinement; William Smith, to be imprisoned one month, and publicly whipped at Winslow, on a market day; William Aynes, to be imprisoned one month, and publicly whipped on a market- day at Aylesbury; Daniel Walker, to be kept to hard labour for six months; and Thomas Ifesf, to be imprisoned three months, and to be kept in solitary confinement 24 hours in each week. Nottingham.— On Saturday se'nnight, a number of men supposed not less than forty, disguised in various ways, am anned with pistols, & c. proceeded to the house of Mr. Benson and, after sentinels had been placed at all the neighbours doors, and the avenues leading to it, about eight entered, and some of theia drove the family into the pantry, with threat of immediate death, if they created the least alarm, (^ with the exception of one woman, who was expected every hour to fall in travail and she Was permitted to remain in the parlour) the rest proceeded into the work- shop, and demolished the eight frames in about as many minutes. They escaped without detection. On Monday evening, about six o'clock, eight men entered the house of Mr. Noble, at New- Radford, in various disgui- es, and armed with different instruments; while one remained below to take oare of Mrs. Noble, the otlieis proceeded up stairs to demolish four warp lace frames, because they were making what is called tie.) a. nme hate. In vain Mr. Noble Informed them that he was receiving eight- pence a yard more than the standard price. " It wasnot the pi- ice," they said, " but the sort of net that they objected to," anil lie was forced out of his frame with the blow of a sword, which narrowly missed his head, and which cut asunder nearly th « . whole of the threads across his frames. The screams of ! ii.< wife ( which a - evere blow on the head with the hint end of a pistol could not still), brought him down to her. assistance, where he found a neighbour, who hud come in at the bark door to their aid, and who, in conjunction with Mr. Noble, seized the man in the house, and attempted to di- arin him, hut he finding himself in danger, called out Xed Tut hi, when his companions rushed down stairs, before they had demolished the fourth frame, to his rescue; and in the course of the sculHe, one of them snapped a pistol w hich very providentially mi< p< I fire. — When their companion was liberated, they f. iund the oor fast, hut they cut it in pieces in a few seconds, anil f - I their way through a collected crowd, threatening'destruction to any one who should attempt to oppose them. The house f Mr. Slater, of New- Radford, was also entered late Tuesday night; the first man presenting a drawn swor l ! . , breast when he opened the door, suspecting it had h. . : his own apprentice who wanted to come in, but tin predators contented themselves with cntting the warp asu. i' . on the beam of the frame, and with taking away the w. i that are necessary to the formation of the two course ; mesh. The same night two plain cotton- frames were bio, at Sneinton; their holders being charged with woqking abated price. On Saturday se'nnight, a hay- stack » a » ' or, at Bulwell, and we have just learnt that two frames, belo..., to a hosier in this town, were last night broken in ( tie p.. of Westhallam, in Derbyshire. A piquet of a hundred now parade the streets of Nottingham, in separate pm headed by the civil authorities every night. The spirit of riot that has so long afflicted the :. » neighbourhood of Nottingham, is said to have exteir • Leeds. On Wednesday night last, at nine o'clock, the '>. trates were suddenly convened, and were informed that . about two hours an attack was to be made hy a number sons on some houses at Shi3cpar, where the dressing inli introduced about 12 months' since had hee. l established, a few Ailnutes' consultation, the troops of horse quarter, town were ordered out, and proper means were emp, > assemble the civil poiver.

I am happy to announce to your Excellency the realiza- tion of those views, by the actual surrender of the island and its dependencies by a capitulation concluded between their Excellencies Lieut.- General Sir Samuel Auchmuty and General Jansehs, on the 18th September. I have the honour to enclose a report which the Com- mander in Chief has addressed to me of the proceedings of the army subsequent to the 20th August, with its enclosures. Your Excellency will observe with satisfaction, from these documents, that the final pacification of the island has been hastened by fresh examples of the same spirit, decision, and judgment, which have marked the measures of his Excellency the Commander in Chief, and of the same gallantl y which has characterized the troops since the hour of their disembarkation on this coast. ' I he Commander in Chief will sail in a few days for India, and I flatter myself that I shall be able to embark on board his Majesty's ship Modeste for Bengal, about the middle of October. 1 have the honour to be, & c. To His Excellency Ti T. Farquhar, Esq. MINTO. fyc. i$ c. <$, c. Isle of France. On board His Majesty s Ship Modeste, off Samarang, September 21, 1811- MY LORD,— I have the honour to submit to your Lord- ship a continuation of the report, which it is tuy duty to lay before you, of the proceedings of the army under my Command. Immediately on receiving the intelligence of Gen. . Tatisens retreating from Bugtenzorg by an eastern route, and the Occupation of that post by our troops, I placed a force, consisting of the 3d battalion of Bengal volunteers, and a detachment of artillery with two guns, under the order of Colonel Wood, and fjirected his embarkation, in commu- nication with Rear- Admiral Stopford, who ordered three frigates on this service, for the purpose of occupying the lort of Cheribon. Transports were at the same time put in a state of preparation for a force, consisting of the detachment of the Royal, and a company of Bengal artillery, n troop of his Majesty's 2- 2d dragoon-, his Majesty's 14th nnd 78to regiments of foot, the 4th battalion of Bengal volunteer Sepoys, the Madras pioneers, and a small ord- nance equipment, with which it was ray intention to enibaik, find accompanying Rear- Admiral Stopford with the squadron, for the attack of Sourabaya and Fort Louis, towards which place it was supposed the enemy had retired. A large part of his Majesty's 14th regiment, the royal artillery, and six field- pieces, were, by the kindness nf Rear- Admiral Stopford, received on board his Majesty's ships of War, and tliey with the transports sailed as they could be pot ready for sea with orders to rendezvous off the point of • Sidayo, near the western entrance of the harbour of Konrabaya. I embarke I on the 4th of September, and early in the morning on the 5th, sailed to join tiie troops in liis Majesty's ship Modeste, which . the Admiral iu Rttention to mv convenience Had allotted for- my accom- modation. On the Oth of September, when on the point of Indermayo, 1 learned from an express boat, which had been boarded by Commodore Broughton, that Cheribon was in possession of the frigates detached oil that service, having separated from the transport on board of which all their troops but the Commodore had embarked. Capt. Beaver, the senior officer of the squadron, had landed the seamen and marines, rod occupied the fort, which surrendered to his summons in time to make a prisoner of Brigadier Jamelle, while passing on his route from Bugtenzorg, with many other officers and troops Letters intercepted on this occasion from General Jansens, announced his intention to collect his remaining force near Samarang, and to retire on Solo. This intelligence determined me to sail for Cln ribon, where I arrived on the evening of the 7th of September, and finding that no troops had yet arrived, rliat a detachment of Seamen and marines had marched inland on the Bugtenzorg road, and been successful in securing great numbers of the fugitives from thence, and gaining possession, on terms of capitulation, of the post of Carong Sanibong on that route; 1 sent immediate orders for the march of reinforce- ments frum the district of Batavia. The cavalry, half of the horse artillery, and the detachment of his Majesty's 69th regiment from Bugtenzorg, were desired to join me ut Samarang, by the route of Cheribon, and the light infantry volunteer battalion was ordered to embark at Batavia for the same place. 1 obtained from Captain Beaver, of his Majesty's ship Nisus, the dispatch of lessels in every direction, to meet the straggling transports on their route to Sourayaba, and direct tliein all to rendezvous at Samarang, addressing a letter to the Honourable Admiral Stopford, to Commodore ltroughton, and all the Captains of his Majesty's ships, requesting them to give similar orders. I sailed the same evening iu the Modeste, and, after meeting the Windham transport, aud ordering her with the 3d volunteer battalion to Cheribon, directed my course to Samarang. I arrived there on the 9th, and was shortly afterwards joint d by Rear- Admiral Stopford, the Commodore, and a few trans- ports, having on board a part of his Majesty's 14th regiment, half the 78th, the artillery detachments, six field- pieces, and the detachment of pioneers. To ascertain the fact of General Jansens' presence, and feel how far the capture of General Jamelle and the troop from Bogtenzorg, might have changed bis plan, I repeated 1o him on the 10th, in concert with the Admiral, an invi- tation to surrender the Island on ter/ ns of capitulation, and Captain Elliott and Colonel Agnew were charged with the communication. They saw the General, received his reply ascertained that he had still with him at least a numerous » iaff, and that he professed a determination to persevere in the contest. The small force with me did not admit of my attempting to assault the place, while it was supposed to be thus occupied; but an attack was made that night by the boats of the squadron, on several gun- vessels of the enemy moored across the entrance of the rivers leading to the town end: the precipitation with which they were aban doned gave a character of probability to accounts, whicl reached us from fishermen and others, that the General was occupied in withdrawing his troops to the interior, and bad fortified a position at a short distance on the road towards Solo or Soercarta, the residence of the Emperor of Java. On the 12th of September, as no other troops had arrived, it was determined to attack the town ; a summons was first Kent to the commandant, and it appeared, that the enemy had ( as at Batavia) evacuated the place, leaving it to be tin- rendered by the Commander of the Burghers. It was that night occupied by a detachment tinder Colonel Gibbs, and all the troops I could collect were landed on the following day. It was ascertained that the enemy had retired to a strong position about six miles' distance ou the Solo road, carrying with him all the Chief, Civil, as well as Military Officer^, id'the district, and that lie was busied in completing batteries and intrenchments in a pass of the hills, where he had collected the residue of his regular troops, some cannon, end a force, including the auxiliary troops of the native princes, exceeding eight hundred men, cavalry, infantry, and artillery, commanded by many European officers of rank. As any check of the attempts of our troops at this im- portant period might have been productive of the worst effects, 1 thought it prudent to wait the hourly expected Hirival nf a larger iorce, but after two days passed at ijaniaraug without their appearance, I resolved to risk an » tt% ck with, the slender means at my disposal, rather than to give the enemy confidence by a longer delay, or afford them time to complete their works, which were said to be (• till imperfect. For these reasons, on the evening of the 14th, I had directed preparations to be made for an attack on the following day, when intelligence arrived that the Windham had sailed tor Cheribon with some troops, and several vessels were seen in the offing ; I, therefore, countermanded the orders, iu the expecuiiuu of succours, but the Admiral, anxious, on account of the approaching unfavourable season to secure a safe anchorage for the ships, sailed in the morning, with two ships of the line and three frigates, to attack Fort Louis, and if successful, to occupy the harbour of Sourabaya. I'he Windham alone arrived in the course of the night, and even the very slender reinforcement which she brought was, situated as we were, of great importance, and it enabled me to withdraw all the European garrison from the Fort of Samarang, and to add a company of Sepoys to the field force, which thus strengthened did not exceed one thousand one hundred infantry, and the necessary artillery toman four six pounders, with some pioneers. I did not think it proper to assume the direct command ofso small a detachment; I confided it to Colonel Gibbs, of his Majesty's 59th regiment, proceeding, however, with the troops, that I might be at hand to profit by any for- tunate result of the attack. Experience had warranted my reposing the fullest confi- dence in the valour and discipline of the troops I had the good fortune to command, and taught me to appreciate those which the enemy could oppose to them. Many of the fugi- tives from Cornelius were in their ranks, and the rest of their forces were strongly impressed, by their exaggerated accounts, with the dangers to be dreaded from the impetu- osity of our troops. I did not, therefore, feel apprehension of any unfortunate result from attacking the enemy with numbers so very disproportionate; hut from our total want of cavalry, I did not expect to derive from it any very de- cisive advantage, beyond that of driving thein from the position they had chosen. The small party of cavalry, of wjiich I had been disap- pointed by the absence of the transports which conveyed them, would have been invaluable; much of the enemy's force was mounted, aud they had some horse artillery, while not even the horses of my staff were arrived, and our artil- lery and ammunition were to be moved by hand by tile Lascars and pioneers, who for this purpose were attached to the field- pieces. Colonel Gibbs marched at two o'clock on the morning of the Kith from Samarang, and after ascending some steep hills, at the distance of near six miles, the fires of the enemy appeared a little before the dawn of day extending along the summit of a hill, which crosscd our front at Jattee Alice, and over part of which the road was cut; the doubtful light, and great height of the hill they occupied, made the posi- tion appear at first most formidable. It was resolved to attack it immediately, and as the leading division or advance of the detachments moved forward to turn the enemy's left, a fire was opened on them from many guns placed on the summit of the hill, and various positions on its face, which completely commanded the road; these were answered by our field- picces as they came up, with the effect, though fired from a considerable distance and with great elevation, of confusing the enemy's artillery in directing their fire, from which a very trifling loss was sustained. ' 1 | ieir flank was turned with iittle difficulty, but what arose from the extreme steepness of the ascent, and after a short but ineffectual at- tempt to stop, by the fire of some guns advantageously posted, across a deep ravine, the advance of the body of our detachment, the enemy abandoned the greatest part of their artillery, and were seen in great numbers and in great con- fusion in full retreat. Our want of cavalry to follow the fugitives with speed, the steepness of the road, and the necessity for removing chevaux de frise with which the passage was obstructed, gave time for the escape of the enemy, while our troops, exhausted by their exertions, were recovering their breath. It was evident that their army was completely disunited, several officers, some of them of rank, were taken; their native allies, panic struck, had abandoned their officers, and only a few pieces of horse artillery remained of their field ordnance. With these they attempted to cover their retreat, pursued by Colonel Gibbs, who, with the detach- ment passed several incomplete and abandoned batteries; and at noon, and after twelve miles' march over a rugged country, approached the village of Oonarang, in which, and in the small fort beyond it, the enemy appeared to have halted, and collected in irregular masses. Small cannon from the fort and village opened on the line as it advanced : Our field pieces were brought up to a commanding station, and by their fire covered the formation of the troops, win, led by Colonel Gibbs, were advancing to assault the fort, when it was evacuated bv the enemy; alarmed by our fire, they were seen to abandon it and its vicinity in the utmost confusion, leaving some light guns with much ammunition and provisions in the village, where they had broken the bridge to impede pursuit; the road beyond it was covered with the Cfps, clothing, and military equipments of their troops, who seemed to have been completely routed and dispei sed. A number of officers made prisoners confirmed this be- lief; our troops had however marched so far, that they were unequal to a longer pursuit, and were quartered in the fort and the barracks which the enemy had quitted. Early in the niglit Brigadier Winkleman, with some other officers, came into my quarters with a flag of truce from General Jansens, who was stated to be fifteen miles in ad- vance of my position, Solatiga, on the road to Solo; the Brigadier was charged to request an armistice, that the Governor General might communicate with your Lordship, on terms of capitulation. He was informed by ' my direction, that he must treat with me, and that without delay; I, how- ever, consented, in consideration of the distance of his position, to grant, for the express purpose of capitulation, an armistice of twenty- four hours, to commence from six o'clock on the following morning, aud limited in its effect to the forces present; with this, answer Brigadier Wiukleman returned, accepting the armistice proposed. I was perfectly aware of the general sentiments of Rear- Admiral Stopford, regarding the object on which our joint services were employed, from the unreserved communication I had held with him. lie had sailed for Sourabaya with the declared intention of attacking Fort Louis, and of returning to his station when the service was accomplished; and lie was most anxious for its speedy termination, as he had in- formed me, he did not think ships would be safe on the northern coasts of Java after the 4th October, unless Sour- abaya was in our possession. All these considerations were strong in my mind against the delay of a reference to liiin, and confident that the im- portant object of obtaining for Great Britain an immediate surrender of the island ought not to be impeded or, delayed by any point merely of form, I did not hesitate to act indi- vidually, and on mv sole responsibility, for the interests of the state. I had also cause to fear, if the favourable mo- ment was allowed to pass, that the allies of the enemy might recover from their panic, that Geneial . Tansens might learn the small amount of our force, that he might again collect his troops and retire on Solo, where, profiting by the period of the approaching rains, he might prolong the contest, and though I could not doubt its ultimate success, a war in the interior would have embarrassed our arrangements, nnd have involved the affairs of the colony in inextricable confusion. On the forenoon of the 17th September, the Comtnandeur De Kock, Brigadier and Chief of the Staff of the French army on Java, arrived at Oonarang, with powers from Gen. Jansens to treat of a capitulation, which I authorised Col. Agnew, the Adjutant- General of the forces, to discuss with him on my part: the result was the signature by them of the articles I have the honour to enclose, with which General De Kock returned in the afternoon to obtain Gen. Jansens' approval. At three o'clock in the morning of the 18th, Brigadier Winkleman arrived at my quarters from General Jansens, who declined to sign the articles which had been agreed upon, adverting particularly to those which concerned the debts of the government to individuals, lie requested that I would meet the general half ivav, or stated that he would, if preferred, come to my quarters at Oonarang, for the pur- pose of discussion or explanation of those articles. As the situation in which it is evident he stood deprived him of all claim to those terms of capitulation which, had he profited by the former invitations made while he still possessed the means of defence, he might perhaps have obtained, and as my situation with a force unequal to pro- secute operations further in the interior would not admit of delay, I assumed a firm tone ; and desiring General Winkle- man to be informed that personal respect for the character of General Jansens had alone induced me to grant any terms to his army, announced to him that the armistice would cease at the appointed hour, and the troops march forward at the same time. Colonel Agnew gave orders for this purpose in his pre- sence; and informed him, that if General . lansens allowed the opportunity of capitulating now offered to escape, by not accepting the terms already prepared, no other could be offered. Brigadier Winkleman returned with all speed to General Jansens, and Colonel Gibbs marched with his de- tachment at six o'clock Oil the road to Soligata, where, after advancing about five miles, he was met by Brigadier Win- kleman, bearing the capitulation confirmed by the signature ef General Jansens, and accompanied by a' letter, which strongly marked the acuteness of his feelings at being compelled, by the desertion of his allies, and the destruction of his army, to adopt this measure. The detachment counter- inarched immediately, and after sending a company ( at the request of Brigadier Winkleman) to secure the guns in the post of Soligata, moved back to Oonarang, whence on the evening I returned to Samarang, just before General Jansens had announced his intention of joining ine at the former place. The General, with great, part of his officers, also reached Saniarang that night. I visited him on the following day, and arranged for the equipment of a transport to convey him to Batavia with his suite, on which they embarked this morning. I have dispatched Col. Gibbs to assume the command of the division of Sourabaya, to which 1 have allotted his Ma- jesty's 73th regiment, the - ltli volunteer battalion, the light infantry battalion, and the royal artillery; 1 have sent a small detachment under Major Yule, of the 20th Bengal re- giment, an officer on whose conduct I have much reliance, to accompany the Prince of Samanap and his force to the island of Madura, where I have directed the Major to assume the command, subject to the general controul ofColonel Gibbs : he has been instructed to occupy the small forts of Joanna and Rambang on his route, and I have directed that of Japara to be occupied from Samarang. ldiamays and Pacalonga have been garrisoned by troops from Cheribon. In mentioning the Prince of Samanap, it would be unjnst to him not to report that, prior to my march from Sania- rang, to attack the enemy, he sent to ask my orders, being, with two thousand of bis people, within a short distance of Damak. lie visited me oil my return to Samaratig, aud expressed an earnest wish for the protection and friendship of the British nation. As Colonel Wood requested permission to relinquish the command of Samarang, aud return to Bengal, 1 appointed Lieutenant- Colonel Watson, of his Majesty's 1- ltli regiment, to relieve him in the command. The 14th regiment, a small detachment of artillery, and part of the 3d volunteer battalion, have been stationed at Samarang, and will shortly, I trust, be reinforced by the arrival of the detach- ments of the horse artillery, cavalry, and 89th regiment. I have detached Captain Robinson, your Lordship's Aid- de- Camp, with a small escort to the courts of Solo and D'Jogocarta, to deliver aletterfrom me to the Emperor and Sultan, and announce the change that has taken plane ; I have also called upon the residents at their courts, Van Braam and Englehard, to continue, agreeably to the capi- tulation, the exercise of their functions in behalf of the British Government, and to secure carefully the public property of the late government, placed in the territoriesof tiie respective Princes at whose court they reside. I have also required the other public functionaries of the late government to continue in the temporary exercise of their functions, which hitherto I have found no instance of their declining to perform. It will be necessary soon to arrange for the guard of honour attached to the emperor and Sultan of the troops of the European Government of Java, and for the occu- pation of the forts at their capital, and oil the lines of communication to and between these; but this will be easily arranged when the troops ordered to Samarang shall have arrived, and the report of Capt. Robinson shall have warranted a judgment of the strength of these detachments, 1 embarked this morning in his Majesty's ship Modeste for Batavia, and shall have the honour of receiving your Lordship's personal commands, and discussing with you the several military arrangements which it may be necessary to make for the security of the island of Java and its depen- dencies, previous to my relurn to Madras, which it is my wish to do without delav.

SIR,— Among the numerous Testimonies to the beneficial Qualities of the Cordial Balm of Gilead, in this Neighbourhood, two have come within our Notice a few Davs ago. THOMAS ROBERTS, of Wilmingtori- Hall, Esq. in this County, mentioned that he had for some Time been afflicted by ill Health; he had lost his Appetite, his Breath was short, and his Cough violent and long continued. By taking three Bottles of the Balmof Gilead he was restored to Health and Strength.— Mr. Roberts moieovcrsaid, that during the Time of taking this Mcdicine, he perceived one of his Tenants, Mr. Wheathill, labouring under similar Complaints, and by giving him only two Doses he was perfectly cured. Another Confirmation of the Efficacy of the Cordial Balm of Gilead, we received from the Lips of Sir. IZZARD, of Shaw- bury, rear this Town, whose Complaints were somewhat similar to those of Mr. Roberts ; in Addition to which, however, he had an almost total Stoppage in his Throat, aud a Difficulty in breathing.— Two bottles completed his Cure. These Testimonies were unsought, and unsolicited by us, and the Gentlemui now appear in perfect Health. 1 am, ( for Mr. Wood), Your's respectfully, THOMAS HOWELL.

( Signed) THOMAS BELL, Sergeant 56th Regiment. Horsham Barracks, Nov. 2d, 1811. Likewise a Child of Mrs. BURK'S, Wife of Mr. BURK, Ser- geant of the 26th Regiment, was born in Spain, when on their long and severe March, on their coming to Horsham Barracks it was so dangerously ill that all Hopes of its Recovery were given over.

The arrivals of Wheat of our own growth were this morning pretty considerable; and which, with the Foreign on hand, constituted a supply more than equal to the demand: in ili2 sales there was much heaviness, and a decline in the price; viz. 2s. on fine, and 3s. and 4s. on ordinary samples per quarter.— We had a middling supply of Barley, which having progressively fallen, cannot now be' quoted higher than 48s. per quarter.— Malt likewise slackened in price, as per figures annexed— New Tick Beans something lower.— White Peas and old Beans nearly as last.— Oats also I with some quantity on hand) were subject to very little alteration. — I n the article ot Foreign Wheat it should be observed, that tor a little very fine Old higher prices were asked.— Fine Flour, of various qualities, all from 85s. to 95s. per sack ; 95s. the highest price.
