Saturday, being the day when the Quarterly Report of the state of the King's malady is to be made by the Queen's Council, to the Privy Coun- cil, all the members attended at Windsor, and after receiving the . testimony of the Physicians, wade up ihe Report, the substance of which we understood to be, " that his Majesty's bodily health is as good its it has been at any former pe- riod of the complaint; that his mental health is as much deranged as it has been at any time ; that none the of Physicians expect that his Majesty will recover, yet none of them entirely and abso- lutely despair^" WixnsoR, APIUL 4— Yesterday afternoon, about four o'- clock, the Duke of Clarence re-, turned here from Maidenhead, accompanied by two of the Masters Fitrclarence ; his Royal High- ness, after paying his re- pects to the Queen and Princesses, set off, accompanied by his children, for Bushey. A fraud of some magnitude has been lately praflised on the Bank of England. A. lady who went to receive her dividends, arising from 40,000/. consols, discovered that 28,000/. had been trans- ferred to a stranger, by means of a forged power of attorney. It is- said that Mr. Alderman Wood means to propose at the next Common Hall an Address to the Princess of Wdles, intreating her Roy-> 1 High- ness to resume her S'ate, in cpnf- rmity with what is due to her dignity, after th^ late declaration of her purity a d innocnce, made by Mr. Perceval in the House of Commons. We learn, through a Gentleman recently ar- rived from Pari-, that Bonaparte's appearance has, f- r some time rast, resented symptoms of a great decline of heahh.- His legs are evi'ently much swelled ; and from this fafl the Parisians draw the most unfavourable conclusion. It is thus that time and the ordinary course of nature, often af- ford that relitf to the sufferings of mankind, for the attainment of which all human effort? have been made in vain j and that dropsy or gout rids the world of a m ant, who has overcome the arms and tramples on the rights of nations.—-( Pilot.) '" Se last Paris Papers contain several Addresses to Bonaparte from the EWloral Colleges, with his answer?. In one. he sav<, " My people shall See me always ready to undertake any thing to ensure the triumph of France, over the hatred of Encland. I confide in their thinking no sacrifices too great, when they shall be deemed necessary." In another, he savs, " The City of Tour* suffers from the meliocrity of the harvpst— nine years pi- nty succeeds one of mediocrity in France. My peopl* cannot better prove their love for my per- son, than !> v shewing 4hat calmness and resigna- tion which circttmst mces require." A nriv armistice has been concluded between the Turks and Russians, for 4." days. The Emperor of Austria has issued a rescript j ( o the States of Hungary, in which he, in sub- stance, stares, that under existing circumstances, he cannot desist from the demand he has made of 12 millions in money for the wants cf the Empire. A separation, bv mutual consent, is, we pnder- rsnd, about to take place between the Crown Prince of Sweds'n and hi' consort, who, ir is said, has an irr- concilenhle dislike to the climate and the society of Stockholm. It is now generally supposed that the I.' Orient fquadronJs gone to Spanish America to finish the Revolutimr begun by Miranda ; who, as some do not hesitate to allege, has always maintained an intercourse with Bonaparte, and a£ led under his instrnfli' ns, and in conformity with his views and j interests. At Cani-' iill, in the neighborhood of Dun- fermline, a fine young child was lately attacked by a furious game- cock, who brought him to the ground, leaped or, him, and picked out one of j his eyes. The child was speedily rescued, but lingered a few days in great agony, and then died. A number of weak and idle persons, from re- mote psrrtsof tiie city, assembled on Wednesday St Wes n- ins'er Abbey, desiring to see the new iilver enfftn ready made for the King, and it was a considerable time before the more intelligent spec- tators could convince them it was 411 FooIs Day. The waste lands in England, capable of culti- • ation, are estimated at 20 millions of acres.— j The Grand Juries at Stafford, Worcester, and Oxford Assizes, have agreed to pt ti'ion the Le- gislature for a Ger. tral Inclosnre Act. EANK or ENGLAND NOTIS.— A London Paper ! ftates the follow ing curious fafl, from a source I which it deems wholly indisputable: From one of i the most wealthy and respeftable Banks in this ! cotin'ry the Bank of England received a package i cf their own Notes. These Notes were snhjefled to the customary investigation, and one of them [ pronounced unon, and returned, as a forged Note. | The private Banker, accustomed to exert, not only j a due, but a very jealous vigilance, was struck j with astonishment, and again scrutinizing the ' Note by all known tests and all possible modes of j examination, solemnly declared to his partner— i that if that Note was a forged one, then there was j an end to all security, and it was full time for tj them to close their doors, and bring their estab- lishment to its final doom ! the Npte was returned to the Bmk of England, accompanied with a most respeflfnl request, that it rpight be re- examined, when, upon a closer inspeflion, it was fonnd to be genuine, and passed to account. EXTRAORDINARY ESCAPE— Cn Friday morn- J iflg last, at about nine o'clock, a horse in a taxed ; cart was stopped to drink at Mr. Branburgs, at the Thatched House, Islington. The boy hav- ing taken the bridle off, the horse, after drink- ing, took fright and gallopped off with the great- est precipitation, with a child in the cart, and pasted a great number of carriages of various k: nds. He ran away two miles, towards Ball's Pond, and then proceeded to Newington- Green- laues, and so on towards the turnpike, where, the gate having been shut, he attempted to leap over it, broke it and the traces, and left the car- riage kehind. The child remained in the cart, ftiiji miraculously escaped unhurt. . Adam and Thomas Lfe, Wo~ of the gypsies who were Cried last week, at Kingston Assizes, and f > und guilty of highWay robbery, are, along with Willmpi Sewell, for cutting and maiming his own sister and his brother- in- law, ordered for execution on this day week at Horsemonger- lane. " A most affecting scene on Saturday evening on the return of the Prisoners from Kingsfpn, took place between the latter Lee and his wife, who was an accomplice in th^ robbery, and for which she is sentenced to be transported for life.. Pre- vious to these two Prisoners being conducted to their separate cells, in taking a final leave of each other, the wretched criminal, the husband, in a most affecting and agitated manner, alternately embracing his wife and a little infant she then held in her arms, was a scene truly distressing to see— two apparently miserable creatures having brought themselves to such a melancholy sepa- i ration. '' Yesterday, there was a meeting of Irish N ' ble-- men and Gentlemen at the- Thatched house Ta. vern, to receive the Report of the Committee to whom the Petitions in favour of the Catholic Claims were entrusted. The Petitions were hand- ed in, which were signed by a number of persons GRAND JURY ROOM. COUNTY OF AVTRJM— t. EWT AS* TZES. .

' BELFAST, Saturday, April 11, 1812. From the North of Europe, to which the poli- tician now looks with considerable anxiety, we have an account that a treaty of alliance, offensive and defensive, has been concluded between France and Prussia, by which, the latter Power stipu- lates to furnish 45,000 infantrv, and all her ca- valry. The Members of the Confederation of [ the Rhine, are also called upon by France, to furnish their respeifive quota of troops. These movements, with the march of some thou- sands i> f French troops from Spain, sariftions die opinion that, if not counteradted by Russia, a grand effort will be made to carry into effeiS the favourite Continental System of BONAPARTE. Several interesting extrafls fronj the latest American Prints are given in the last page. —-- BY EXPRESS. This morning, at an early hour, the London Papers of the 7th arrived, by express, from Do- naghadee. They contain the following intelli- gence :— London, Tuesday, April 7. French Papers to the Sd inst. have been re- ceived. We learn from them that the L'Orient squadron got into Brest on the 29th March, after a sate, but, we have the satisfaftion to think, not very productive, cruize of three weeks. Tile House of Commons meets this day, pur- suant to adjournment. We presume one of the first proceedings will be to ask whether or not the Prince and Princess ol Wales are separated by a formal act, signed by the King and by every Member of the late Cabinet, as insinuated in its publication of yesterday by the paper most in 1 the interest and confidence of Mr. Perceval. The debates on the Catholic Petitions are to be deferred for some rime, in consequence of a ! request from the E;; rl of Fingall, and llie other principal Catho. ics of Ireland, who are anxious that M Protestant Petitions in their favour should i| b « presented, before the discussion shall come on. without our permission ? Intelligence from Cadiz to the 20ih ult. states, that on the 7th, Marshal Soult, with nine batta- ' ions, matched from the French lines; and im- mediately after, the enemy, perhaps to conceal the reduftion of their besieging army, opened a fire upon the city, but with little or no effeft. It was known at Cadiz that the riege of Badajoz had been undertaken by Lord Wellington, and the result was anticipated with sanguine confidence. Such is the miserable and exhausted state of Spain, according to the late accounts, that the French' will find it impossible to subsist a large army to- gether j and it is even conjeflured, in some of the last letters from Cadiz, that the enemy will be obliged to abandon Aiiiiairtsta, on aecomit of the | severe scarcity which afiiiSs that Province. Se- j veral of the native Spaniards, who have perished through famine* panfvmj attest the melancholy want of fjod which prevails in that part of the Peninsula. ROBBERY OF THE NEWRY FLY. As yet, not one of the numerous gang, that robbed the Newry Fly Coach, has been apprehend- ed. It has been ascertained, however, that the gang was commanded by that notorious robber, Collier, whom Francis Fox, Esq. ( one of the Sheriffs' Peers of the City of Dublin), at the risk of his life, and after a desperate struggle, appre- hended about three years ago, when the ruffian had escaped from prison. It is an unfortunate circumstance that, from causes unknown to the Public, this wretch had not been brought to jus- tice, but had been suffered to prowl again on so- ciety. Edmund Alexander M'Naghten, Esq. M. P. em barked at Donagliadee for Poitpatrick on Monday last, and James Craig, Escj. M. P. on Tuesday.— The Right Hon. Isaac Corry, M. P. aiso embarked on Thuisday. His Majesty, by his Letters Patent, under the Great Seal of Ireland, has been pleased to appoint WILLIAM RICHARDSON, of Poolbeg- street, in the, City of Dublin, Esq. Proiftor of Office, of his High Court of Admiralty of Ireland. We are happy to announce the appointment of this gentle man to this very important office, as we know him to be, iueveiy well qualified to fill this highly respectable situation, and as we know, that through his exertions, the rights of his Majesty, as well as those of that most useful class, the Sea- men of our country, will be protected in all cases pertaining to his office Letter, dated & Tewtonglem, Aprils, ZRI2,- addreste. d to Mr. Hugh ( ir< tluim, Belfust. SI IT— Allow my communicating to you an account of the stranding of the brig LEE, of Workington, John Cosson master, in which vessel I am interested. The brig Lee jailed from Workington about midday on Sunday last, 2<) th ult. in ballast, bound for the Gulph of Saint Lawrence, wind N. N. F,.; at evening of that day was a- head of the Mull of Galloway ( wind enereasing) ; during the night di- rected their course out chaimcl, but from the violence of the storm, drifted towards our coast, close in. with which at midnight they descried the land, at Aghageegh- head, then blowing very hard, wind about East. They wore ship in expectation of weathering Gorruu point, but could not, they made the same unsuccessful attempt to weather the land on the other tack, uiitil the only alternative, the only hopes left was to strive to ride the storm out in Ited Hay, about a mile distant' from this town, where t'uey came to, and brought up with both bower anchors, at nine o'clock on Monday morn- ing last, wind encreasing at east, rather southerly. After riding the storm about thl- ee hours, one of the cables parted. Tho vessel then drifted towards the dangerous rocks aiid shelving precipices. Thus situated, they cut the remaining cable, and run on shore at the extremity of lied Bay, on a sandy beadi. The vessel is not damaged,' and my opinion is ( although contrary to the general opinion) that if the wea- ther is favourable, . lie will begot off without much expence ; to effect which the necessary arrangements are entering in- to. I will transcribe to the London Assurance Company a copy of the protest. The business shall go into good hands " for the interest of the underwriters aud owners. The gen- tlemen In this neighbourhood deservudly command the thanks and respect of underwriters, owners, master aud crew, for their general and disinterested exertions and anx- iety for the lives in danger, and parties concerned; their at- tention and exestions will indeed be registered in the re- membrance pf ye- jr present addresser, i am, & c. WILLIAM AYBE- TO THE FREEHOLDERS OF THE COUNTY OF DOWN. GENTLEMEN— I shall not attempt a personal canvass of your C- iunty ; If I shall be thought worthy of being returned to Parliament, as your ReptesentatWei it will be the" highest honour 6f my life— rely on it, I never will desert the Interest s of Ireland. The Cause of the People, and Free- dom of Eteflion, meet support beyond my most sanguine expectations. Whilst the enemies of Ire- land are dismayed, divided, and undecided, and I apprehend, will not dire td oppose tire People, I have strong reason to rhink, that mpsrof the great leading Interests of the County, will pursue the honourable condu- fl of permitting. : heir Tenantry to poll as they think proper. The Freeholders may depend on every effort being made to support them in their just right of exercising their Constitutional privilege. of voting according to conscience, and to punish and ex- pose all, those (^ G. ENTS IJI, PARTICULAR)^ who. shall dare to attempt- to drive them to poll', or pre- vent them from performing their bounden duty to their Country. I congratuiate the County, on the viffory gain- ed at Down, on Friday the 27th ult. by the Inde- pendent Interest, oyer their Opponents, alihough the County was, very unfairly and improperly, taken by- surprize, and tvithout du; notice. GimHemen, viffory is within your reach— ex- ert yourselves— communicate every necessary in- formation to " the Friends of the Ifecplc"— every thing tending to support the interests of Ireland, and the Honour and Independence of the County of Down. I am, Ger. tlemen, Your Ftithful Servant, ELDRED CURWEN POTTINGER. P. S. The Dissf- rtters of the County of Down, are requested to observe, that the present Admi- nistration are going to associate with them in the Cabir. et, Lord Viscount Sidmouth. It is scarce necessary for me to remark* " that every Mcnikc- of the Cabinet is held to agree < u) ith, and le accountable for every measure, supported by any Member thereof." Lord Sidmouth'sdeclarations; HIS BILL OR BILLS; tjie prosecutions lately carried on against Dissent- ers; the alarm excited through that most tespeif- able body, the Dissenters of England; should point out to the Irish nation, the necessity they lie under, to maintain the Right of ALL PERSONS to Religious and Civil Liberty. If the Dissenters of England are crushed by the Ministers of the Crown, certainly the Dissenters of Ireland, cannot expect to be permitted to enjoy LIBERTY OF CON- SCIENCE. BKljFAftT SHI?

I took the liberty some time ago of informing the friends to Agriculture, through the medium of the Commercial Chronicle, that an ingenious blacksmith had made an attempt at constructing Ploughs of iron, and had so far succeeded, as to produce one, which performed its work in a man- ner as satisfactory as could be expected, from an implement, made on a plan which I do not think the most perfect. The same mechanic has, since that time, exe- cuted one for me, on a better principle; and, hav- ing given it a fa'r trial, I am satisfied it will fully answer the design. It is rather lighter than the wooden Ploughs I have been long in the habit of using ; performs the work equally well ; and is sufficiently strong to resist the pressure of any common tillage. It perhaps will be deemed premature to say much in favour of an implement so lately intro- duced to public notice; but some of the advan- tages it will apparently possess over the common wooden ones may, however, be mentioned. It is a fa< S well- knnwn to farmers, that the lower part of the handles, which is generally kept in a damp state from the moisture of the earth, aud the mortises in the beam and handles, which ea « ilv admit wer, and retain it long, are the first parrs of the plough that give way, and frequently put the farmer to the trouble and ex pence of a re- pair almost equal to a new one, if the plan of establishing the use of Iron Ploughs succeed, this trouble and expence will be avoided, and the ad- ditional inconvenience of being stopped, in the midst of a pressure of work, to get a new team cr handles put to the Plough, in consequence of the old ones having unexpectedly failed, will be prevented. An instance of this kind occurred on my farm last spring, by the breaking of the beam- of a doable mould board Plough, whilst hurrying to get a field of potatoes covered in on the last day of the week, which must have lain unfinished, and the sets exposed to the depredations of the rooks, had not my ploughman, with great inge. uuity, fixed a chain to the hinder part of the Plough, so as to supply, in some sort, the want of a beam ; and thus, with great exertion, and work- ing late, covered two Irish acres with a Plough without a beam. The novelty of the thing will probably induce many farmers to smile at the idea of having iron [ ploughs, as they did some years, ago at the pro- J posal of making hnrses thresh their corn ; but \ there are many others, I hope, who, knowing that there are no limits to be set to improvement, will be ready to inquire into the merits of the imple- ment, and if they find it deserving of notice, will pot only adopt its use, but encourage the ingenuity of its inventor by a suitable reward.

The report being read, w is ordered to bs print- ed, and made the order of the day for Monday next. Mr. Bacon then introduced a Bill to authorise a loan for a sum not exceeding 11,000,000 dol- lars, which was twice read and committed. TUESDAY, FEB. 18. Mr. PORTER offered the following Resolution : " Resolved, That a Committee be appointed to report a Bill, authorising the President of the United States to engage, commission, and orga- nize 20,000 men." Such was the substance of the Resolution. Mr. P. said, it would be a long time before an army could be raised by enlistments for five years; men would not engage to enslave themselves for such a length of time. It tiSne $ c;;.\ iih; A,> . nfcJKte should be done. Great Britain was scarcely ever known to strike the second blow— she will be pre. paling to give the first; and if we go on in this easy good- natured way to m ike war, there is no knowing how scon that blow may come. Pie re- sided within the reach of the guns of a British fort. On him and his constituents will probably light the first of British indignation. He had many social friends on the Canada side, and did not wish to quarrel with them ; buc his duty to his country was above all other considerations. He was aware of the evils of war; this he had hoj^ ed would be a vigorous one and soon decided. He calculated that there were 5 or 6000 regu- lar troops at Quebec, and about 2000 more scat- tered all over Canada; and about 20,000 ill- dis- ciplined and ill- armed militia. The troops at Quebec cannot leave there, and thus expose Que- bec. Take 15,000 miUtia from the northern states, and 5 or 6000 regular troops, and you may easily over- run Upper Canada ; starting, in season, i. e. before, on account of the ice in the St. Lawrence, the British can send any reinforcements. Then let our army be joined by more, and lay siege to Quebec. After taking Quebec, proceed to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, which will soon fall into our hands. New- York alone, if invited or suffered, could have taken Quebec while we have been talking about it. Mr. P. here went into a long argument to shew that Congress has a tight to march the militia out of the Union. No reply was made to the arguments of Mr. Porter, and the yeas and nays were immediately taken on the passage of the Resolution. Yeas 49, Nays 58. So it died at its birth. The House proceeded to consider the Bill for 1 arming the whole body of the militia. Mr. ROBERTS moved to postpone the Bill inde- finitely. Motion lost by Ayes and Nays.

Badajoz, the capital of the province of Estre- madura, in Spain, stands on all eminence on the south side of the river Guadiana, over which it has a stone bridge, 700 paces long and 14 broad, built by the Romans. It is 175 miles S. by W. of Madrid, latitude 38. 32. N. longitude 6. 50. W. 170 N. of Cadiz, 120 N. by W. of Seville, and 140 E. of Lisbon. Badajoz contains siz monasteries, the same num- ber of nunneries, and a population of 7 or 8000 persons. The fortifications are partly ancient and partly modern ; the fine Roman bridge over the Guadiana is defended by a tete de font, on which a few guns were mounted. On the right bank of the river stands the fort of St. Christoval, which commands the city. Badajoz was twice besieged by the Portuguese, but never taken. At the close of the first revolutionary war, Ba- daj iz became remat Icahle for being the seat pf the negociations between Spain and Portugal, previ- ously to the Peace of Amiens, which terminated in a treaty, obliging Spain to withdraw the troops sent to invade Portugal, on condition of the ces- siori of the province of Olivenza by the Crown of Portugal. This treaty is commonly called the Treaty of Badajoz. In the present war, Badajoz became the quar- ^ ersof a considerable part of the British army. In Oftober, 180<>, afer the retreat from Tala- vera, some Ladies of di « tio5> ion noenrd their houses every evening to the British Offices. The ent » rtainm^ nt* on those occasions, called trm tcr- tuHia, were similar to the fashionable routs of Lon- don, with a mixture of music and singing. In the month of January. 1811, in pursuance of a combined plan of operations between tl. e French Commanders, previously to the commencement of Massena's refeat from Santarem, Marshals Mortier and Soult advanced from the South of Spain to Merida, and Moitier laid siege to Bada. jox, hav n£ previously obtained possession of Oli- venza. A Snanish c rps, of from 12 to 20,000 men, under General Mendizabel, sent to the re- lief of Badajoz, was surprized, and totally defeat- ed by the French, who had to Sross two great rivers, the Gebora and the Ouadiana, to come to them. The French Commanders bein? now at liberty to prosecute the siege without interruption, effefted a breach by the 10th of Febr » ary, when the Lieutenant- Governor, Tmaz.' who had suc- ceeded as the Governor, Menacho being killed, surrendered the place. Marshal Bereford, who was advancing to the relief of Badajoz, having had the mortification to arrive too late to save it, retook Campo- Mayor and Olivenza, which the enemv abandoned ; and on the 7th of May invested Bidajnz in turn, in conjunftion with a Spanish corps under that gal- lant and able patriot, General Don C. d'Espana ; but intelligence having been received of the ad- vance of Soult, with all his force from Seville, t ® raise the s'ege, it was thought prudent to send back the besieging artillery to Elvas, and leaving a corps to keep the garrison of Badajoz in check, to march to give the enemy battle. The result was the glorious but dear- bought viftory of Al- buerA, gained by the Briti h arms on the 17th of May, 1811. Shortly after this viffory, the siege of Badajoz was resumed, Lord Wellington hav- ing previously joined and taken the command of the army in person. On the 2d of June the bat- teries were again opened against Fort St. Christo- val, the principal defence of Badajoz ; and on the 6th, a breach being effeflid, which was reported prailicable, an assault was made, but the assail- ants were repulsed with loss. A similar attempt was made in the night of the 9' h, but with no better success, the enemy ha ring cleared the ditch of the rubbish, and thus rendered the breach in- accessible. The combined French army, under Marmont ( who had succeeded to Massena, Snult, & c.) hav- ing now advanced to the relief of ths place, the siege was finally raised, and Soult entered the place on the 20th. General Phillippon, the Go- vernor, was highly comrnended by Soult, who is the Commander is Chief in Spain since the retreat of Massena : Sonlt went so far as to say, in his report, " I demand tor him ( Philippon) the title of Count, with a suitable appani< rf •" but Bona- parte has never complied w'. th his demand, nor conferred any reward or mark of favour on Phi- lippon. Since th* r period, Badajoz has continued unmolested iova to the commencement of the present si'- r.->. M t SUCCESSFUL INTREPIDITY OF A BRI- TISH SAILOR. The following narrative is extracted from the Gentleman's Magazine ( fan. 1812) it exhibits, an instance of generous intrepidity which has sel- dom been equalled, and certainly never excelled ; as such it cannot fail to be highly interesting to our readers:— " On our passage from Lisbon to Virginia, in the Sally and Kitty, Capt. C , we experienc- ed a succession of bad weather. One evening, about seven o'clock, I being at the helm, heard a voice, apparently rising out of the sea, calling me by name. Surprised, I ran to the ship's side, and saw Richard Pallant, a youth, in the water — going astern. Immediately I called all hands. The Captain, though a man of approved resolu- tion, was quite confoundcd at the boy's danger — as his friends, who were people of property, at Ipswich, had trusted him the voyage, confid- ing in C ' s protection and care. He ran backwards and forwards not knowing what to do, exclaiming that the boy must perish— as the ship drove apace from him before the swell, which was so mountainous that he durst not hoist out the boat. " As no measures were offered to be taken for the preservation of the boy, though not at this time above a hundred yards from the vessel— I mentioned the possibility of swimming to him with the end of the deep sea lead line, which would serve to haul him, and the man who swam to him, aboard. The Captain, mad at a proposal which he thought too dangerous to be attempted, cursed me in a ra^ e, exclaiming, " Who would be mad enough 16 got" Piqued at his answer, and eager for the boy's safety, I profered myself to go, and was immediately relieved at the helm by an American, beyond comparrison the best swimmer on board. " It was no time to deliberate. I stript in a moment, and clapping the line round my body, plunged from the ship's side into the sea. The line was new and stiff, so that, not drawing close rt'tnd me, I swam through it— but, catching as it slipt over my feet, I secured it by putting my head and one arm through the noose. Ere I had swam far, the line on board getting foul checked me suddenly, and pulled me backwards under water. I soon recovered myself, and strove to proceed. During this, they on board, endeavour- ing in vain to clear the line, cut some parts that were entangled, to free the rest— and, in their hurry, cutting the wrong part, let about half the coil drop overboard, leaving me adrift with it fast round my neck. Immediately they called to me to return— but, the booming of the waves prevented my understanding them, I thought they were only striving to encourage me, and therefoie shouting cheeringly again to shew my confidence, swam forwards. " Having, as I guessed, come near the place where the boy was, I looked round, and, not see- ing him, was afraid he had gone down— but mounting the next ware, I saw him in the hollow — and shooting down the declivity, hailed him, and found him yet sensible, but just sinking. I gave him my hand, earnestly requesting him not to grapple niy body— and then called out to those on board to haul in, not knowing that the line was cut. On turning round, and facing the ship, my heart sunk within me, to see the distance she was at. As the vessel drove fa> t before the sea, whilst I was swimming slowly the other way, she was now more than a quarter of a mile from us— so that, knowing the line could not reach so far, I found I must be adrift. „ , " All the horrors of my situation rushed on me at once, and I thoutrht dt » ath inevitable, but still * struggled hard for life. Whilst I was swimming forwards, the rope being kept slanting in the wa- ter I felt not half its weight— but now it incom- moded me . extreme V, when I remained almost ex- hausted, encumbered with the boy. The waves upon which, whilst I breasted and saw the ap- proach I singly mounted, now rolling behind us, and now over our heads, burying us under iWm with irresistible fury. I strove hard to disengage myself from the line— but, the noose being jam- med under my shoulder, and one hand holding the bov, I could not effefl it. " When the line was cut, they on board strove with all expedition to hoist out the boat— for, though the Captain hesitated to do it at first, whilst only one was overboard, yet now t, hat ano- ther was in danger, by a voluntary effort for the bny's preservation, he resolved at any risk, to at. tempt to save us. Soon after I turned towards the ship, I saw them hoisting out* the boar— the interval from the cutting of the line to this mo. ment having been spent- in clearing her of the lum- ber with which she was filled. At last she pulled off and I had the consolation to see her come round the ship's bow. The height of the sea was considered so vry dangerous, that out of a whole British crew, but thrae were found who durst ven- ture in the boat— and in the confusion they came away with only two oars, and but three tbowls for thfse, and without e'ther rudder or tiller. Under these disadvantages they pulled very slowly against a most mountainous swell, which they wert forced to tend with the utmost car; and skill, to prevent the boat being sunk by it. " Encouraged by the sight of the efforts " made for our preservation, 1 strove with the utmost ex- ertion to keep above water till they came i, p, and endeavoured what little I could to meer them— when a sea breaking deeper than ordinary over us, in striking eagerly to rise myself, I brcks my hand from the boy's hold, upon which he grasped me round the loins, with my head downwards un- der his breast. Struck with the dread of instant fate, I struggled at my full exertion to disengage myself— but it was impossible. The fear of death, and almost the present paitis/ jf it, rendered his " grasp' too string to be broken from. In fbis trembling moment, short as the interval must have been, a throng of ideas rushed with inconceivable rapidity into my mind. Futurity, with its joys and torments strongly contrasted, as I shuddered on its very verge, was pidlured in its most striking aolours to my imagination. " Finding my struggling ineffeflual, I had hap- pily the presence of mind to sir, fc myself, and be- gan to dive downwards, et the very moment when my 4 » sow, " bursting with holding my brearh, co strongly, impelled me to strive for the surface, to end the intolerable torture. My diving had the desired effect— the boy n ding me sirking, let go his hold, , and rose to the surface. I rose immedi- ately when disengaged, and drew breath. Another moment's delay had sealed our destruction. Struck with horror at this hair- breadth escape I began to swim singly towards the boat, which now was within 200 yards of us, when the youth • seeing himself abandoned, piteously cried out to me for God's sake not to leave him. My own preservation by making to the boat, opposed to my almost certain fate if I returned, caused a mo- mentary struggle in my bosom— and a severe one it was— to all appearance the choice of life or death. Compassion, however, prevailed. Struck with his inevitable destruftion, I returned, and catching hold of him just sinking, I again gave h'UTi my hand, charging him on his life not to grapple me any more, andren- wed the arduous struggle to keep us both arbat until the boat came up— for, now utterly exhausted, we rose but at intervals w draw breath. " Eternal God 1 how slowly the boat seemed to approach, arid how inconceivably long appear- ed the dreary time of fatigue and terror which we spent in anxiously awaiting it! Every wave now broke over us and we continued, though with the u -. iv.) st difficulty, to contend with our fate till the boat came very near— when a mountainous wave, barsting with impetuous sweep rolled us over.— Our efforts to regain the light separated our handf, and I again found myself clasped in the eager grasp of my companion. I had recourse to div- ing again: but this did wot now so readily pro- cure my release. Spent and stunned at the shock, he persevering in retaining his hold till being' able to hold' my breath no longer, I drew in a full draught of water. I was still sensible of the excessive pain— it seemed as if my entrails were burst by something forced down them. « He now, by some means, quitted me, and we both rose— but my senses wandered, the sky danced to my sight, and I was sinking, when, by God's mercy, the boat being now come up, one of the sailors caught hold of me, just as I was losing for ever, in this life, the sight of the day. Another seized the boy, who had suffered less during the last struggle than I h • '— and we were dragged into the boat, where we lay in her bottom faint and exhausted. " Our brave preservers exerted their utmost skill to regain the ship. This they with difficulty accomplished, and getting alongside, she tosseif with such v. iolence that a single stroke against the ship would have shattered the boat to pieces.— The men having hooked the tackle to hoisr her in, leaped on board— but we who were scarcely able to stand, must have been crushed to pieces be- tween the boat and the ship, had we attempted it. We were therefore obliged to remain lying in the boat awaiting the chance of their getting her in, or else of her being stove by the sea, or breaking from the tackle, in which case we yet should have suffered that fate which we had hi hern so pro- videntially escaped. At length the sailors, with some damage, got her on board, and being taken < Ut of her, we were received with trail port by our shipmates, who had despaired of ever seeing us again. " I had the line now taken off my neck, and found, on measuring it, that I had sustained the _ 1j . * .' vmj. K weight of seventy yard- i during the whnle time I was overboard. It was about half an inch roiuiii, bein^ a cramon deep- sea lead line. All night I snlfer'ed most severely from the water I had swal- lowed— and observed, with extreme surprize, when I turned in my hammock, that the agitation of my spirits prevented my ' ehj'jy; ng that sleep - which my fatigue rendered so necessary— nor ( hold I close an eye during the four hours of my watc i below." • " " They thitPgo dWn to th"-' s'C- a'in ship', vid occupy their business- in' great waters— th^- v mci see tlft. ty&' ks bf.
