TRIAL OF D. DAWSON. CAMB* I © GB.— This trial, which has occupied * o much the attention in the sporting world, took place yesterday at the Cambridge Assizes, be- fore Mr. Justice Heath. The Court was sc jnuch crowded, that the business was greatly im peded. The Prisoner was indicted for wilfully and maliciously poisoning a colt, by Eagle, the property of Sir F. Siandish, by infusing a quan- tity of white arsenic into a water trough on the Newmarket cotuse in April; 1811. Mr. Serjeant SelUn, on the part of the prose cution, detatled the case to the Jury. Cecil Bishop, who had been committed as an accomplice with Dawson, was admitted an ap- prover in ihe case, and tl> « substance of his evi- dence was as follows:— He hail been acquainted with the prisoner since the year 1S07 » witness fcfing at that time shopman trt a chemist and druggist in Wardour- street. His acquaintance V- ith Dawson originated in ensequence of the latter having represented ttf him that he had a friend whose horse had been piayed tricks with, and, in order to retaliate, the prisoner asked wit- ness his advice as to what was best to give a horse ^ o sicken him w;- hout killing him; or, in had been together at - different races, and witness had procured solutions of arsenic at various times, which h< td been inru-, ed into a trough ar Don- caster, v. here two brood mares were destroyed. They had also attempted to poison Lord Dir- lington's Rubens, which won the Pavilion stakes at Brighton in 1809; and they succeeded in an attempt at Newmarket in the same year— In conjunflion with a man, by repu'e named Triste, witness had been employed by ? h= prisoner to infuse poison into the troughs at Newmarket, in 1811. Pirouette, the favourite for the Craven stakes at Newmarket, was the objesS of the poi- soning ; and she was under the care of Mr. Rich- ard Prince, a respeflable stable- keeper, at New- market ; and also a training groom, in high es- teem among the Members of the Jockey Club —• Mr. Prince had under hi*) care the principal horses for the Claret stakes, among which were Spaniard and Pirouette, the property of Lord Foley ; the Dandy, the property of Lord Kirmatrd ; and the Eagle colt, the < ubjefl of this ir. diflment, all of which were poisoned, but some recovered. Bishop said, that he had infused the arseric into the trough;, / three in number, where Mr. Prince's horses watered, by means of a syringe, in con- sequence of their being covered and lucked.— D iwson was the afting man in the back ground, and Triste Was the p rson who was to b > ck the field against the favourites After h iving water- ed the horses on the 1st of May, the day after the Claret stakes were run for, they were all taken ill ; in the stables, refused their corn ; and the four ; which died may be estimated, considering their Jwi value and their engagements, at £ 12.000. Whilst Dawson was in London, Bishop was busy in keeping arsenic in the trough; and he address- ed ^ he Prisoner by the appellation of " Miss D tw- son," and received in return, of Dawson, inci- sures to enable him to carry on bis nefarious prac- tices. . The poisoning of fhS horses was completely proved by Mr. Prince, who had been apprized of the plan, and owing to his exertions, the perpe- trators were brought to justice. A young irtan named Longford, proved that the Prisoner had met hfm at Newmarket ir, 1810, and consulted him with regard to lending him- self as an agent on the occasion. Dawson had often called on him, but he refused to participate in his plans. After Bishop's evidence had been gone through, the Judge stopped the proceedings, and after hearing arguments on the part of Mr. Serjeant Sellon for the prosecution, and Mr. King for the prisoner, direfted an acquittal, on the grounds that the piisoner had been indified as a. principal in- stead of an accessary before the faff, which, in p- jint of law, could not be maintained. The pri- soner was acquitted, to the mortification of a crowdcd Court, but was detained until next As- sizes, on a charge of poisoning race- horses in 1809.

INTERESTING LETTER FROM WASHINGTON OF THE 6TH FEBRUARY. [ front the Columbi Centincl of the 12 th of February.] " The Bill reported by the Committee of Com- merce to allow the importation of certain goods, still lies on rbe table. I am confident a majority of Congress consider such a bill jv: t and due to tfyeir constituents who have property in England and the Islands, but they are. deterred, from the discharge of their duty in passing it, by the nume- rous and scandalous and threatening letters which the members daily receive from interested ai d hot- headed partisans, in opposition to the r^' poit- ' ed bill. " These letters have a most astonishing influence even on fair minds ; and are not counterbalanced by scarcely a solitaiy line from the mercantile and shipping interest;,. or the friends of peace; be as- sured that all political party distin- flions aje here despised, and are nearly defiiriS'; and IJam con- fident a maj^ ity of Corigreoj are true An^ ericans, who have no undue predeliflioi/ for Fiance or England, and who only desire to know what can be best done for the good of their country, to do it. A majority, I know, are opposed to war, if it can possibly be avoided— But there is an interest in Congress deadly hostile to commerce, and to the commercial part of the community, particu- larly to New England. It arises partly from ig. | norance, partly fr<> m undue prejudice, and partly because thev are led to believe that the restrictive anti- commerci; d system has the sanction of the great body of the New England people, and they roms- k that there jAs not^ een a single memorial or remonstiance oil ihe subject, laid on the table during the Session. " This is nearly true. What t^ e cause of this apathy and remissness can be, I am not compe- tent to tell— but am convinced, from frequent con-# rsations on the subject with influential i Members of the majority, that if the people of I New England wo d respectfully memorialize ^ Congress on the subject of the embarrasments on [ this commerce, and remonstrate against a war, whik their property could be drawn out of f England, that they1 would be gratified. Let every town originate and send one or more— let them he signed by the friends of commerce, the mechanics and agricultural interests qonneCl. ed w ith commerce, regardless of any paltry dis- tiniflions of party politics or more paltry elec- tioneering considerations, and I am satisfied the restrictive system will be abandoned, the alarm of war will subside, and t, he merchants and mariners of the United State., be allowed to manage their own concerns in their own way."

The ground U] ton which the Duke of Bedfoid acted was, I understand, an instruction from his Royal High- ness, to hold, out the language which he then used, and which instruction was contained in a letter from his Royal Highness to the Duke.

It, is extremely brief, being written in haste, and only mentions that the bombardment of Badajos was expected to take place two days after the date of the letter, Viz. on the 1st instant; and that this important operation is to be conducted under the command of the gallant General HilL Another letter written a few days before the above, states, that the 1st and 6. h Divisions of the Army were on their march to Badajos, and that General Graham was to have been at Abrantes, on his way thither, about the end of last month. 1 here seems to be no Symptom of Lord Wel- , MRS.

Many hats, shoes, shawls, & c. were lost in the scuffle, but we rejoice to say, no serie- tis mischief occurred. The play was Henry the Eighth, in which Mrs. Sid- dons sustained the par; of the' Queen with inde- scribable effeift. At the end of the tragedy the curtain rose, and Mrs. Siddoas came forward. The sight was th n impressive and affeflive; every person in thd house stood up, out of compliment to the abilities of the speaker, and Mrs. Siddons deliveted a poeti- cal adieu to the audience, in a style that suffused every eye with tears, and filled every heart with regret. At the conclusion, her s" ii, Mr. Henry Siddons, led her off the stage, amidst the sighs and acclamations of the audience. 23E] J'VlST SI3JNiJ The Triton, Captain Sherry, for. New- York.

REPORT T* THE DUKE OF ALBUFOTA TO 1US ROYAL HIGHNESS THE PKINCE OF NLIUPCHATEL AND ^ ACRAM, MAJOR- GENERAL. Head- q- iarters, Valencia, Feb. 27, IS!.. Monseigneur— The fort of Peniscola, which during the sieges of Saguntum and Valencia had obliged me to make a detachment on my rear, to cover ths communications of the army, has since been the object of my principal attention. I have hitherto confined myself to observing it, not being able to blockade it on account of its natural situation. It is situated on a detached rock in the sea, near the high road, one league from Bentcarlos,' and is joined to the Continent 1 only by a tongue of sand, thirty toises broad and | sixty long. An old castle of the Templers, built on the summit, is surrounded by the city, which contains 2000 inhabitants, and with a fortifica- tion of sufficient extent, guarded bv several ranges of batteries. A garrison of 1000 men defended the place, under the orders of Brigadier Garcio Navarro, a man of rank, who was taken prisoner last year at Falcet, and made his escape. Five English vessels cruized on the coast, and com municated with the place, which thus received continual sucour from without. " On the 20th of Jannary, the General of Di- vision, Severoli, with five battalions, commenced"' by my orders the operations of the siege. A bombardment commenced on the 28th, nnd con- tinued with activity for eight days. The trenches were opened in the night of the 31st. The enemy kept up a brisk fire. " On the 2d of February, Lieut. Prune!, an of- ficer of my staff, whom I had sent with instruc- tions, having been admitted into the place, brought back an answer and propositions which were im- mediately sent to me. The preamble was re- markable. and of a nature announcing the sub- mission of the place. The Governor, in an ani- mated discourse, expressed his true sentiments an'l his hatred of the English, who pressed him with menaces to surrender the fort to them. He hesi- tated not to prefer the . French, and to recognize the present Government, as the only one calcu- lated to put an end to the agony of his country. I sent immediately the proposed capitulation, with my answers in the margin, subjoining a letter to the Governor. In the interval the labours of the siege were continued, but the Governor accepting the modified capitulation, put an end to hostilities. On the 4th at noon, Peniscola was surrendered to the troops of the Emperor, with provisions for two month-;, tnd a considerable quantity of ammuni- tion. " The circumstances which have accompanied the surreoder of Peniscola, and the submission of the Governor, Garcia Navarro, are a conquest of opinion, from which I hope the be- t effects— Every thing here ( with the exception of Alicant, of which an English General Roche has taken the command) tends to the conclusion of the war, which may already be regarded as terminated— The inhabitants shew themselves to be aduated by a good spirit, on to the gates of Alicant— I am, with respedl, Sir, « The Marshal Due D'ALBUFERA.

Colonel PALMER stated his anxiety to cor. rect a misrepresentation he was sorry tohave seen in the Papers of what he was reported to have stated, in answer to the assertion that an order had beert issued to his Royal Highness the Prince Regent's regiment to exclude the admission of Irishmen. Being aware that there were some grounds for such statement, he ' did not at the time take on him< elf to contradict it fully, but he was now enabled to state, from the highest authority, that no order of the kind had ever been issued. He admitted that the Recrui- ing Officers had received instructions from the Commanding Officer, Colonel Quinton, to enlist Englishmen in prefeience to Irish, and if any blame was to be attached to him for this, he begged, as far as his own opinion went of the propriety, to take his share— that he had not stated, as reported, that liis objection had been on account of the Irish deserving to the enemy ; on the contrary, no one was more convinced than himself, in common, he believed, with every other British Officer, of the loyalty, courage, and fidelity of the Irish. What he did state was, that the description of Irish they met with in this country were liable to desert, which was a reason for objecting to them ; and to prove that his regiment entertained no national prejudice, they objected, in the same manner, to • various classes of their own countrymen, to all Londoners, and inhabitants of manufacturing towns, and confined their recruits to that class of persons brought up to agricultural pursuits; for they found that Irishmen, and those of their own country, who were not in early life accus- tomed to the care of horses, made bad grooms, and, though the best infantry, were objectionable as cavalry. He therefore trusted these reasons • would clear his regiment of all suspicion of the motive which had been attributed to it; and he urould therefore add, that this system was not confined ( as had been stated) to his own regiment and the loth, but that it was pursued by every English cavalry regiment in the service. He would only add, to prove that he never objected to Irishmen ( who were well recommended) and « ill less that he preferred foreigners; that the number of Irish then in the regiment exceeded that of foreigners ; and that the amount of the Jatter did not exceed thirty, out of a complement of neatly 900 He concluded by observing, that it was an unpleasant subjcct, and that he should not have taken a part in the debate of last night, had he not felt called upon to do justice to a brother Officer, than whom, he believed, there was not a more deserving in the service, and to whom that credit for its appearance and disci- pline, which, he trusted, was not unworthily be- Stpwed on the regiment, was due— Adjourned.

Thomas Magu're was put to the bar, and tried for the alleged murder of John Loughran. It appeared in evidence that Lough- ran had been in the employment of Magutre for upwards of six years, that on the day this unfor- tunate affair happened, the deceased had been drinking, and came into the prisoner's forge in a state of intoxication ; that the prisoner reprimand- ed luim for getting drunk and absenting himself from his bu? iness; that the deceased used very im- proper language to prisoner and called him a liar — prisoner was making nails for the purpose of J shoeing horses, and deceased advanced towards him as if to strike, on which prisoner retired from the anvil towards the bellows ; deceased then was about to go out of the door, but returned to the prisoner again, using bad language, and as if to strike, when prisoner, who had a hammer in his right hand and a nail- rod in his left, made an auk- ward push with the latter, which slightly wounded deceased. Deceased was at work next day, and did not complain of the wound ; however he took ill and f! i » d in two days after. An inquest was held, on his. body which was examined for the pur. post* of ascertaining the effefts of the wound ; but it was nor then considered ( hat it entirely occa sioned his death, but rather a bad habit of body from deceased taking medicine and drinking.— i'his latter circumstance, however, did not go to the jury as evidence. The learned Judge gave an able and impartial charge to the jury, pointing out the degree of criminality on the offence if the pri- soner appeared to be guilty— and discriminating accurately between the crimes of murder and man- slaughter. The Jury shortly returned a verdift of Acquittal. Wm. Scott, for stealing a rapper from the hall door of Wm. Stewart, E- q. was found guilty of larceny to the value of sixpence. Denis Morrow, o herwise Morris, for stealing a horse from a man of the name of Venue— Guilty. To be banged on Thursday the 2d of April. Alice Price was tried for s ealing a pocket- book containing some bank notes from James Dunlap in the fair of Magnirrsbridge. It was proved that she lifted it up <; C tpe ground and proposed re- turning it to the tfwrfer on being applied to, for a trifling reward.— Acquitted. James Macbride, for stealing a hide of leather from the shop- door of Mr. Andrew Armstrong.— Guilty — To be confined 12 months. JameS Brett, Surveyor of Excise, was put into the bar for taking off a vessel from a private dis- tillery. This was a most shameful prosecution; the person from whom the vessel was taken, ac- knowledging on his cross- examination, that he had just before spilled potale out of it. Mr. Brett having only done his duty was instantly acquitted, the Learned Judge appearing greatly displeased at such a proceeding. John Black and Robert Ramsay, for an assault and wounding Benson, who had been On Thursday last, an Inquest was held by Francis O'Mara, Esq. on the body of Arthur O'Keeffe, of Ballytigue, in this county, who died the preceding day at Roan, tn consequence of drinking much whiskey.

Denis Maguire for forging a bond for £ 500, ® n John Betty of Belnaleck, and for uttering same, knowing it to be forged. No evidence which could be suffered to go to the jury was produced, and he was of course discharged.— A trial took place in the Record Court last Assizes to recover the amount of this Bond with interest; but the plaintiff, Maguire, was nonsuited, on which the defendant instituted the present prosecution. James Kittson, and thirteen others, for the mur- der of Denis Mi rwournagh, in the fair of Derry- gonnelly on the 10ih of July last. This unfor unate business, it may be recollefted, we noticed in our patvr shortly after the affray took place, and which we then stated to have ori- ginated in a bailiff, of the name of Maguire exe- cuting a warrant against a man of the name of Falls, for an assault at a former fair in Monea. The affray was attributed to party motives, and the parties were denominated under the religious appellation of Catholics on the one side, and Pro- testants, or Orangemen, on, the other 5 and a great deal of severe animadversions appeared in the Dublin papers in consequence. The first witness called on the prosecution was a woman who said she knew Kittson, but was not able to identify him in the bar. The next witness examined was a young man of the name of Culien, who deposed that he saw the Protestant party with arms, that they pursued the Catholics; knew the deceased, and saw him about 1100 or 1200 yards from the place where the quarrel first originated, saw Kittson fiie^ a shot, by which deceased fell; saw others besides deceased scattered on a field about 40 yards from Kittson. The Catholics had no guns; they ran away. Cross examined ly Mr. Rolleston, Saw a number of strangers among the Catho- lics, could not say how many ; saw Pat M'Rory and Mick Cassidy ; heard the latter was beat at Monea; saw no stones thrown ; there were stones thrown on both sides; did not see them thrown until after the first gun was fired. Informations were lodged against himself; Kittson's shot was aftdr the stones were thrown. Sarah Maguire sworn. Recollefts the fair; saw men with guns and bayonets at it; could not identify Kittson, but pointed out wrong persons. William Criggen sworn. IlecollefU the July fay ol Derrygonnelly; saw persons with arms; saw Wm. H.' nderson armed with a gun bat not a bayonet; heard a shot fired about forty yards from place of the affray; saw Protestants pursue Catholics about half a mile in every direflion ; heard a shot, but could not say deceased was wounded by it. Crost, exumined by Mr. Johnston, Saw no strangers; might have seen many he did not know* heard M'Rory was there; saw a body on each side assembled ; heard persons from Leitrim were sought for to be arrested ; heard Cassidy was beat, but did not know he came there for revenge; does not believe it. John Fox sworn. Is a pensioner; was at the fair ; saw Kitson there,. pursuing those running away ; saw deceased with wounds; saw Isaac Thompson load his piece with ball- cartridge. Cross- examined by Mr. Rolleston. Did not see stones thrown ; did not know Cas- snly came there for revenge, but heard he had been beat before ; would not believe he struck at all; thought Kitson a peaceable man. Thomp- son, when loading his gun was quarter of a mile from the Catholics. Patrick Mnguirt sworn,. Saw some fighting and some flying; saw James Kitson and William Kitson with guns. Thomas Burjie sworn. Saw guns with Isaac Thompson, with Hall and others; heard shots; was present at the beginning; there were many strangers who afterwards were flying; did not hear that Michael Cassidy or M'Rory bought any thing in the fair. Rev. Mr. Owens was here examined as to the warrant, which was of no consequence with respedl to the trial. Owen Devit corrobo » ated former evidence with respedt to the pursuers having arms. Ann* Leonard knew prisoners, Sandy Hall, Robert Armstrong, & e. ; thov were of the Pro- testant party, with arms. They huzzaed; said they were the boys subdued the rebels; saw de- ceased when dead; had relatives in the fair; did not notice strangers that day more than at other fairs j heard thers were sto^ s thrown, but saw none ; was near at the time of the fight. Honora Devlin identified James Kitson; saw him at the fair with gun and bayonet; was with the party who killed the boy ; saw him take aim, and the boy fell; saw another person leap up as if rejoiced and say, " Well done, Kitsfin, there's beef for the croppies." On her cross- examination, said she knew Kitson well ; went with the armed party in anxifty for her own friends; Kitson was about forty yards from deceased, on her right; saw no stones thrown ; two shots were fired ; told the above words to no person but her half- sister, no;, even to her husband, until he was apprehended for the riot, and then she said, if they would let her alone she would let them alone, but would not say any thing unless summoned. Brian Flanigan was produced* but proved no- thing. Maguire, the constable, proved the execution of the warrant against Fallis, and said he was rescued. On the defence, Mr. Noble Weir stated that he did not know of an intended quarrel until he was applied to by some persons, who prevented him going home lest a riot would ensue, from the grpat number of Catholics that were seen from various quarters, cellefted and armed with sticks. Maguire, the bailiff, had arrested Fallis, and a quarrel was likely to take place ; he desired Ma- qoire to give the prisoner up to him, and that he would be accountable for his appearance next day; M; iguire at first refused, but afterwards complied with some reluflance. On the appearance of dis- turbance, he applied to one Maguire to go and pacify the Catholics, and he would prevent the others ; Maguire and another person did go for that purpose, and when he thought peace had been made, Maguire, the constable, who was drunk, again seized on Fallis, on which the quar- rel began, and the Catholics threw stones and huz- zaed by way of defiance ; the others, who were yeomen, then got their guns, and pursued to a hill at some distance, and the former threw stones and shouted again ; he heard two shots fired, and be saw a man fall, and others hit him on the head after he did fall. On his cross- examination, Mr. Weir said, there were some squibs fired; that he saw Kitson ; be- lieved he had a gun, and that he followed ; that he thought Protestants might have been shot, as the parties were mixed; could not form a belief who shot the man. Alexander Acheson swore much to the effefl of Mr. Weii's testimony. That he applied to Cormick Maguire to endeavour to make peace, which he did, and Charles Maguire also; saw Pat. M'Rory with a stick, who struck first, and then the quarrel began. On Cross- examination, he thought the arms were for the purpose of de- fence, a quarrel being apprehended. He could not believe any thing he did not see. Wm. Veetch heard a shot fired 5 it was not Kittson who fired it, although he had a gun in his hand, he fired no shot; heard the man was shot while Kittson was standing with him ; he did not go beyond the first hilj, and was with him all the time. Cross- examined. Was not with him until the party was running over the bridge ; did not know what kind of gun Kittson had, whether a fowling- piece or a musket; Kittson had belts on. Wm. Whitaker swore, that Kitson was with him ; that he could not have fired the shot by which the man fell, as he left him behind him and ran to see the man ; Kittson did not fire previous to that; he heard one or two shots; Kittson fired neither; Kittson had on a bayonet belt; witness heard several shots, but thinks they were blanks; thinks also the arms were resorted to for defence. Hete the defence closed. RECORD COURT. The only trial of importance in' this Court was that of a record brought by one M'C. iWelf to recover property from the widow and hairs of Brian M'Cawell late of Scotstowa in the county Monaghan. It appeared in evidence that the plantiff and' his brother the deceased Brian, had at a rsmote' period taken out a joint lease of a mountain farnn of the lands of Mulhavale, in this county from Mr. Somerville that the plaintiff had several years- ago, wished to relinquish his claim and obligation under the lease which in fact he did and the de- ceased Brian procured another lease from the Landlord in his own name, which Mr. Somerville clearly proved. The plaintiff now set up a claim under the old lease in order to set aside the wi- dow and children of his deceased brother in which he was nonsuited. The Learned Judge then proceeded to charge the Jury, and recapitulated the entire evidence, elucidating evel y thing as he proceeded, and point- ing out the law and the nature of the crime on both sides, in the most clear and satisfatfory man. ner ; bnt still leaving the jury to decide on the v alidity of the testimony they had heard, with which he said it was not his province to interfere. The Jury retired for about an hour, and returned wilii a rsidiil of— Jc pitta I alt. DARING OUTRAGE. The following statement, which, unhappily, rests upon an authority that precludes the light- est suspicion of its truth, exhibits no ordinary features of ferocity, although unattended by any fatal consequences. About three o'clock on the afternoon of the 2lst of last month, the house of James Whelan of Kr. ocknaska, in the Parish of White Church, in the county of Wnterford, was attacked by four men, who had blackened their face with a view to avoid detection, and who were all doubly armed. One of them had a gun, and pistol, and each of the other three a pistol and blunderbuss. Immediately on entering the,, house, one of them fired at James Whelan'* daughter, and wounded her severely in the head with slugs, thus committing an act of cowardly barbarity, which, so far as we know, is without example, even amongst the atrocious achieve- ments of this description. When the party arriv-. ed at the house, they were seen by a young bar, son of the Proprietor, who instantly went to a field, where two labourers were at work, and communicated to them what had occurred. Whelan, is a respectable Farmer, and had been, entrusted with arms for his defence, as his hous& had been attacked on some former occasion. The two labourers, who knew where the arm-, were deposited, immediately repaired to the house, with the firm and laudable determination of de- fending it at every hazard. Their design, how- ever, was frustrated by the precautions which had previously been adopted. One of the party stood as sentinel on the outside, by whom they were compelled to go into the kitchen. On their entrance, one of them was knocked down with ; t blunderbuss, and the other was twice fired at The first shot grazed his thigh ; and the se. ond penetrated his knee, and completely disabled him, perhaps for life. Resistance was now at an end, and the fire arms, consisting of two blun- derbusses, a case of pistols and a gun, were un- avoidably delivered up by Whalan's wife. The party then went off, but they stopped several persons whom they met on their retreat, and de- manded money from them. One of them soon . afterwards returned, and came to a house not- far from Knocknaska, inhabited by an old man and his daughter, from the former of whom he de- manded'a guinea. The man said he had it not, but that he would go out and procure it. On his return without having obtained it, his visitor attacked him with a blunderbuss, and broke it on his head and arm, inflicting upon him several severe wounds. From this house he went to an- other at no great distance, where he remained for some time. Meanwhile, an alarm had been excited, and four or five resolute men endeavour- ed to trace the party, but without success as to three of them. Two of these men, named French, followed the man who returned, into die house where he had last gone. On their entrance ' he presented a blunderbuss at them, and de- manded who they were, and, on hearing from, them their names, he said they might sit down. He was also traced to the house by another man, named Bluett, who, having listened for some time at the door, and having heard the voice of the Frenches, on whom he knew he could depend, at last went in, when the same ques- tion was put to him, and the same threatening atti- tude assumed, as he had been before resorted to. Bluett gave a name different from his own ; the man immediately replied, that tha" was not Ins name, and put his hand towards his side to take a pistol from it, tft^ fclundetbuss, as afterwards ap- peared, having been previously discharged. On this Bluet immediately rushed upon him, and threw him down, and the Frenches coming to his aid, the criminal was disarmed and secured, after having received several seveie wounds on the head. He was then taken back to- the house of the old man whom he had so cruelly beaten, and then; left bound, whilst those who had seized him went to Michael Barron, Esq. what had happened, and to receive his direflions how to a< 3. On their rt- turn to the house, for the purpose of conveying their prisoner to a more secure place, they ivere detained for some time at the door by the daugh- ter of the old man, who appeared to faint through terror. Whilst this scene was adting, the prisoner, who, it would seem, had in the inteiim been un- bound, escaped through a hole made in the back part of the house, and has not since been heard oL When the attack was made upon Whelan's house he was from home at a funeral, and returned only in time to hear one of the shots fired, and to see the party at some distance on their retreat. CURE FORI THE GOUT Dr. Musgrave, ( an English Physician) relates the case of a Gentle- man who had lived intemperately many years,, and had many severe fits of the gout, which caused a considerable number of remarkably large chalk stones. Being reduced to poverty, he turned brick- maker, for the sake of earning his bread 1 and was surprisingly benefitted by his constant employment. His appetite returned, but he haii scarcely any thing to eat; he became athletic jand what is more remarkable, hts chalk stones utterly vanished ; and in this temperate way he lived many years.
