Mr. B \ NKES moved, that the Sinecure Of- fices Bill be further taken into const ! erition. Mr. WILLIAM DUNDAS said he had ma- ny objections to this measure. His objections were chieflyconfined to the offices in Scotland. In that country there vve; e antient offices of State, which were appendages to Royalty, and were an- tien' vestiges of grandeur, which it would be highly injurious to abolish. It would be a gross breach of faith to abolish these offices; it would be insulting to Scotland, and would be a violation of the Union with that country. The LORD ADVOCATE of SCOTLAND was of the same opinion. This regulation would, in his mind, do away some of the principal com- pacts betweeu England and Scotland at the time of the Union. At that time the office of Chan- cellor was done away in Scotlaftd, but another, that of Keeper of the Great Seal, was establish- ed in its st^ ad. There were many other offices of a similar description in Scotland, and he would ask, Whether it would be aow fit to abolish those rights ? Were all those men who were truly re- sponsible, to be driven away ? and what trust or confidence was to be placed in the inferior Officers, who were to be put in their places, and who were to have a power over the whole landed in- terest of Scotland ? Would the House consent to the abolition of the Keeper of the Seal in Scotland ? [ Mr. BANKES replied., it - was not to be abolished."] The Honourable Member continued : — he said that the Bill spoke differently- The Bill went to aboiish the offices so far as related to salaries. This was what he complained of: for if the salaries were cut off, the people of Scot- land would have no security for the due perform- ance of the duties of the Offices. In the Bill the offices of Lord Justice General and Lord Keeper of the Seal were to be consolidated. He contended, that the duties of the two offices could not be performed by one person- If the Bill pas- sed, the people of Scotland would be in a state af astonishment mixed with indignation. All Scotland would be in confusion. If the Bsll pas- sed, the people of Scotland would crowd to the Bar. and petition for the protection of their rights. Why did not the Honourable Gentleman extend his principle to all the offices in England ? Why did he not say, that in all cases where there was a deputy the principle ought to be removed, and the deputy made to perform the duty ? He wished that the regulation of all those offices should be left to the Lords of the Treasury. Believing that the measure was calculated to do more good than harm— ya laugh)— more harm than good, he should vote .: guiust iss farther pro- gress. Mr. LYTTLETON said, he had often heard it thrown out against the people of Scotland, that they were more disposed to benefit by the corrup- tions of the State than any other people. He had often been inclined to consider these as calumnies; but the speeches of the two Honour- able Members who had just spoken, contributed in some manner to remove that opinion. Would it be any longer said that Wilkes and Junius were calumniators of Scotland J The offices in ques- tion were not only useless, but they were general- ly given to private favourites, in consequence of which the power of the Aristocracy, and not that of the Crown, w » re increased. If ever there was a time when this power ought to be rescued from the Crown, it was the present. The Regent was surrounded with favourites and Minions This was proved by the appointment of Colonel M'Mahon. He had no objection to reward by sinecure offices, even to the amount of thousands, such names as a Nelson or a Wellington ; but he never would consent to a shilling of the public money being given to a gamester or a spend, thrift.—( Hear, hear.) Mr. COURTENAY spoke against the Bill, which, he said, ought to have been divided into s x classes, on every one of which the opinion of the House should have been taken. He consider ed it as radically bad, for it was founded on an- other Bill which could never be acted upon ( Mr. Burke's Bill). Tiie House, he contended, ought not to look at things as they are, but as they have been j and he was confident that if this Bill was passed in its its present form, it would be found to one, the most expensive to the nation that ever was framed; for it went to entail a charge on the people in perpetuity, by giving large pensions to those who held the first offices in the State for a certain number of years, which would in the end prove far more burthensome to the people than those offices and sinecures which it intended to abolish. Lord A. HAMILTON defended the system of consolidating and abolishing useless offices in Scotland. He contended, that all the offices pointed out in the Bill, might be executed by deputy, as recommended, without any inconve- nience resulting to the Public. The salaries of the principals might be saved, withomt at all di- minishing or tarnishing the honour of the nation; and at a time when our expenditure was so large ( in the present* yaar he was convinced it would fall little short of £ 100,000,000), such a saving would be highly desirable. Colonel BASTARD said, the House had long been told by Ministers, that no office in reversion should be granted till the opinion of the House was known ; and now, when, on the recommen- dation of so many Committees, a Bill has been brought in, and the expectations of the people raised to the highest pitch, they were told the Bill was not proper by those very men who, in- stead of rejecting, ought to do every thing in their power to amend it. An Hon. Gentleman opposite ( Mr. Courtenay) had said, the House must not look at things' as they are, but as they » were. Good GOD ! could they shut their eyes to what was passing at the present moment ? Could they be blind to the starving situation of the peo- ple, and say it was possible those unfortunate wretches could bear to see the loaf torn from the famished lips of their wives and childrert, to pam- per in luxury a set of men who are wallowing In wealth, produced by places and pensions, wrung from their hard and incessant labour ? f Hear.) He wished this measure had been differently con- ducted, and that a separate vote had been taken i on every place that was recommmended to be abolished. The thing would then have appeared more in its true light. Many of those places, it was well known, w; re given as temptations to : take office, and not as a reward for offices that had been well and faithfully filled. He conjured the House to reflect on what they were about to do— He was afraid the public did not now en- tertain so respectful an opinion of the House as might be wished ; and if they did not do all in their power to shew that they looked to the in- terest of the people more than to their own, sure he was th « respect would still be diminished. Mr. VANSITTART was of opinion the Bill should be recommitted, that it might have fur- ther consideration. The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER opposed the Bill, on the ground that it would ba. taking a branch of the royal power from the King, which he ought to enjoy for the purpose of enabling him to reward merit. This Bill, he said, went to curtail the emoluments of the Chief Justices of the Court of King's Bench and Com- mon Pleas, offices which, he contended, were more arduous in their execution than any others under tlje Crown, and which were the worst paid. It would, therefore, be a most unjustifiable thing to deprive them of the power of selling certain offi- ces, or giving them to branches of their own fa- milies, to provide for them in some respectable manner. If this Bill were to pass, no man of talent would be found who would undertake any species of public business, and neglect his own particular avocation. For these reasous the Bill should have his decided negative. Mr. BANKES observed, that much the great- er part of the speech of the Right Hon. Gentle- man and those who preceded him on the same side referred to points which ought properly to be argued in a Committee. He wished they had confined themselves to the principle of the Bill, and had not harrassed him with this bouble diffi- culty. There were few Offices intended to be abolished. It was only inteded to abolish large Salaries when attached to inefficient offices He was really surprised to hear the offices this Bill proposed to abolish, represented as in some mea- sure the outworks and safeguards which were ne- cessary to the protection of the Crown. On the contrary, he rather regarded them as a millstone appended to the Monarchy, in danger of weigh- ing it to the ground; bedause these sinecures were became low, degraded and odious in the es- timation of the people ( Hear, hear).— Th « re- cent vote of the House by which the sinecure held by Colonel M'Mahon was abolished, had ruined their character in the eyes of the country. Al- most all the arguments of the Hon. Gentleman from the Northern part of the Island, seemed to him to be founded on a misconception. It was astonishing to him that those Gentlemen, with all the acutness generally attributed to the natives of that part of the country, should not have been able to comprehend what his Right Hon. Friend, however ( the Chancellor of the Exchequer), seemed to comprehend very well indeed, namely, the difference between an Office and the Salary of an Office —( A laugh). Mr. CANNING strenuously suppored the Bill. Lord CASTLEREAGH opposed the Bill. The House then divided— For the Bill, 134— Against it, 123 Majority against it, 11. ENGLISH LAW INTELLIGENCE. i| | By the evidence of Keen, another of th; party, it appeared ' hat he was deputed by Cnckett to nS a day and mace where the party miirhc roey fir dinner. It had been expressly stipulated, that Hoth oarties were to appear at table w':: i certificlt.' s op their ages, and whoever was oldest, had to acsouat to the landlord. Upon the Whole of the evidence his Lordship observed, that Hu'd had paid the dinner, without the approbation of Crick; tt, and when the trial approached its termination, he had scruples in hi* own mind upon the propriety of maintaining the cause. Mr. Serjeant B? st, in shewing Cause against the Rule, observed, that the parties made the wager of such a nature, that it could not be known who should pay the dinner until the entertainment waj over. But Upon consideration of his Case, Crickett endeavoured to shuffle himself from the respon- sibility though it had been manifestly proved that he had assented to the bargain, and also that he had permitted the dinner to be ordered.' H'. issey » by partaking of the dinner, had rendered himself responsible to pay it, though he certainly possessed the right to sue the defendant for the expences. The Lord Chief Justice said, he did not alto- gether Comprehend what " Rump and Do/. en" was, by the evidence it appeared an indefinite en- tertain m'nt. Mr. Serjeaflt Belt said, why, my Lord, we h id a most competent judge, the landlord, before us, who described it as r comfortable dinner, where a roasted goose displayed herself smoaking under the nose at one end of the table; and as mucli good wine as a man could conveniently carry away with him. Concerning the law of the case, he would algae that it was not an unlawful wager,'' The Lord Chief Justice said, he ought not t3 have tried such a ridiculous wager} but it was needless to repine; here it stood before him. Mr. Serjeant Vaughan, in support of the appli- cation, said, that the very name of—" Rump and Dozen" smacked of immorality. Here an assem- bly of eight hungry persons determined to make Crickett maintain them for one day, in which they drank no less than 15 bottles of wine. The bet, he would maintain, was illegal, because it was in* definite, and even the landlord himself could de- scribe the " Rump and Dozen" as only a feast, where so much meat and wine was partaken of, as they could conveniently carry away. Now, how was it possible [ a guage the belly, to discover what load it would carry away ? By being a pro- vocation to gluttony and drunkenness, the bet was immoral; and, besides, there appeared three shilU ings in the bill for anchovy toast, to provoke thirst, so that drunkenness might follow, Every person who knew Crickett, would describe him ai a gentleman who had furnished too many unne- cessary " Rumps and Dozens" to people, but who felt himself in no wise disposed to pay for the meat and merriment of other men, who had ran him into high e* pences during his absence from London. The case of a game of Hazard was thrown out of the'Court by Lord Loughborough, and the reason why a case in the game of Back- gammon was entertained in the Court, was, be- cause it was a wager made upon a lawful game. Upon the whole, therefore, he would assert, that the case could not be maintained, and that the verdidt should be annulled.— Rule refused. LONDON, MOJJDAV, MAY H COURT OF COMMON PLEAS, LONDON, APRIL 29 THE RVMP AND DOZEN. HUSSER V. CRICKETT. In this case, Mr. Serjeant Vaughan had obtain- ed a Rule to shew cause, v- hy the verdiif for the plaintiff should not be set aside, and a nonsuit entered. Mr. Serjeant Best appeared to shew cause against the Rule. » The Lord Chief Justice, when he opened the notes which he had taken of the case, said, the Court had now to consider a wager, of such a kind as he h oped would never appear in the pre- sence of a Court of Justice again. It happened, that on the 29th of May, 1809, the parties in the case, accompanied by several of their friends, had a merry meeting at a tavern, and a conversation jaking place between Hussey and Crickett con. ceraing their ages, it was mutually agreed, that a day should be appointed for the examination eif their ages, and whoever should happen to be oldest was to pay for a certain kind of dinner, called the " Rump and Dozenthey parted., and a day being appointed by the'intervention of some of their comrades, the party met, to the number of eight persons, but Crickett did not ap- pear, upon which the piaintiff produced the cer- tificate of his age ; and, by the stipulation of the bargain, the defendant was declared to have for- feited the price of their entertainment. In the evidence of Hurd, one of the party, it appeared, that the witness was very anxious for a dinner, and accordingly ordered it, and. paid the bill, for which he was reimbursed by Hussey, They were all school- fellows, and when the agree- meut was made, it was signed by both parties. He considered the " Rump and Dozen" to im- ply a good dinner, with as much wine to cool it as could be conveniently drank. The bili amount- I ed to if IS, including the attendance of waiters, i On Saturday last, Government came to a reso- lution to dispense with the servises of the River Thames Fencibles, and accordingly ordered them to be disbanded. The I. ord Mayor of London re « ceived a Letter from Government on the subje. 3, which he forwarded to Commodore Lucas. On Sunday they were assembled in the Corn Market, for the purpose of deliveiing up their arms. The corps not having any previous Intimation from Government with respeft to their intentions, wa » much surprised, as well as disappointed. The measure, we understand, was adopted by Govern- ment, with a view of obtaining from 1500 to 2000 of them to serve on board of ships of war; and, on Monday morning, at three o'clock, several pressgangs were on the water, for the purpose of impressing the men as they came to business, but they did not pick up a single hand, in consequence of the lightermen being on their guard. All the men belonging to the River Thames Fencibles, who conceived themselves liable to be impressed, left town for the interior, on Sunday evening, and the consequence is, that the business on the i'uver was at a stand the whole of the day, nor could coals be unshipped until proteflioni were affor d ed to a sufficient number of the lightermen fo the our pose. * The marchants of London waited upon Go vernment on Monday, relative to the business, bu we have not heard what measures have been ta^ ken in consequence. BRITISH SAILORS.— A short time since, Bona- parte being on a tour in France, arrived at Gi- vet, where he had occasion to. crow a river, over which there was a bridge composed of boats, but the violence of the weathei having separated tiv » boats, he was prevented from getting over. Tim French used every exertion ; o Unite them again, but in vain, and it was supposed their Em pert r would be under the necessity of ralitiqtiisiiint his intention of crossing the river, when it was'slig. gested that some of the English sailors m> 1 probably accomplish the important business; a guard was instantly sent to the prison for 40 < jf them, who, on their arrival, immediately set to vv irk, and in a short time made the bridge pas,, able.

" As the fa£ U become more and more disclosed respecting the affair of Henry, the pitiful conduft of Mr. Madison is more and mare despised by men of honourable feelings of all parties. " The faiSs, it fcs supposed, will, when fully scrutinized, appear thus:— Henry, with a French real er pretended Count, who has been in this city this winter, landed From England at New. York or Bo# tot » , last November. Doubting whether to go to Canada to try to get into his old business, or malce money by disclosing secrets to our Go- vernmerft, he becomes acquainted with Governor Gerry of Massachusetts, who urges him to come on here. The plan ' is settled. Gerry writes a letter, dated Jan. 11, 1812, to Mr. Madison, ask- ing bim to assist in his re-- leflipn, and the obli- gation shall be reciprocal. Henry arrived here the last or nearly the last day of January, and put up at a hotel, where he kept himself most of the time concealed in his chambers his name, I think, is entered on the hotel book Jan. 31. He delivers his letters tn Madison. The papers are • xamined. The bargain ii made. What sum he gets out of the 100,000 dollars secret service money is not known. Many suppose 20,000 dol- lars. £ He brought with him to New- York a check, drawn on hne of the banks of this city, for 48,000 dollars Madison engages that the sub. jeft shall not be disclosed to Congress till he is safe. The Committee of Foreign Relations met, and sent for Monroe, who brought the Papers with him. He was ask^ d where was Henry ? He informs them that he is supposed to he now in New- York, OF has sailed to Europe ( in the Wasp, provided, perhaps by agreement, to carry him to France.) Monroe is asked what accomplices there are who were concerned. The Secretary answers, there are none 5 not an American is im- plicated- The Committee can do nothing. " The Committee, mostly democrats, perhaps will not report. The whole was intended to se- cure the northern democratic elections. Some- thing more, it is however expected, will be done to- morrow, or next day, to put this contemptible conduct in a correct point of yiew, for the public. The House will again have the subject before them. Though in fact all is honourable to the federalists as a body, it is hoped this- miserable electioneering trick will have an effect the reverse of what was intended. Madison's character will be sunk by this meanness, that this alone may pre Vent his re- election, . " Future proceedings are settled— There is a determined large majority in the Senate opposed to war, bring the Hornet what she n^ ay. • The Non- importation is to be continued.-- The Pre- sident is to borrow what money may, be wanted for oidinary expences. The tax- bill will pass, but never he executed. So things are to remain till the next Session of Congress. " An expectation is entertained by many of the democratic members, that the Hornet will bring out some public instrument, under the se- al- or authority of the French Goverfimeilti that the Decrees are revoked, so far at least as our neu- tral rights are concerned ; in which case war is not to be declared till Great Britain has had time to comply with her promises of rescinding the Orders in Council, as soon as she has authentic proof of the repeal of the Decrees. War is alto- gether out of the question. - " NEW. V0R. K, MARCH IB' " Our correspondent at Washington cn- mnfiinl- cates many things about Henry ; the Committee tf Foreign Relations had not yet agreed'to report on the subject j the, majority would much rather not repcrt. The injured loudly demand it, and they may be forced to come forward with all they know, which will operate on Mr. Madison more than., the sting of a wasp ; for some of the Com. mittee know what the truth is. New subjefls of lurprise will soon pop out upon the public. One of the' beads of department has denied that the Wasp has gone to France *, the certainty, however, of Henry having gone in her, excites here demo- cratic astonishment. There is some talk hen about the 48,000 dollar business at Baltimore.— Quincy will bring the business before the House. The following, from the Baltimore Republican, will throw some light on the Henry business:— " When Mr, Henry passed through Baltimore, 1 on his way to Washington, he had little or no money, but received 100 dollars from his corres- ! pondent in New. York. He remained upwards of j a week at Washington, and in the neighbourhood^ On his return to Baltimore, he called with a friend , at a Bank in this city, and produced a certificate. ! from an officer of a Bank in -" Washington, that forty. eight thousand dollars had, been deposited in ; • aid Bank to his credit. In this certificate, the cashier of the Baltimore Bank gives him drafts, '• & c. on the Bank in New-^ ork, where Mr. Henry's ! business lay, and whence he informed his acquain- , lance here he was to sail for Europe in the Wasp." i HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, MARCH 9. J On a motion for printing the papers sent by the ; President, Mr. PITKIN had no objeflion to the printing* but they were calculated to cast an unjust odium on a part of the country, Nr body that he had any knowledge of ever heard of the man before, or of any such projetf. The Ict'ers were a libel • n the government, on federalists, on democrats, on every body but himself, and himself he had proved a traitor. He^ would not consent to take a charaflerfrom such a man. Mr. BIIB thought an enquiry ought to be insti- tuted ; though he had no belief that the federalists had ever thought of joining the British for any such purposes. He would refer the documents ' to the Committee of " Foreign Relations. • j Mr. GHOUOK said, if ar. y evidence, it was high- j ly honourable to the Eastern seflion of the union, j for he sa> s not one could be found to meddle in j the projeft. But it demonstrates a scheme to dis- ! member the union. | j' Mr. QVIKCV was thankful, if " there is now or ever has been kn. idea in Great Britain that there ; M a BiitiJ; party. in America, that the contrary is i proved. 1i Mr. WRTOHT was of opinion that the publica- tion would be calculated to disgust the Northern se& ion of ' the Tfnion. He had no belief of the federal party's having ever entertained a wish to join the British. He would refer them to a Com- mittee of Foreign Relation?. Mr. TROUP.— They are important, as they prove by this acknowledge! traitor and spy that such a plan has been agitated. A short time since the British Minis'er here denied that Sir James Craig induced thp Indians to ails of hosti- lity. Ye' we see what Sir James can do. Mr. RANDOI » H would print them: it would be impossible to keep them from the public, and if their printing should not he authorised, mutilated parts would go to the world like the mutilated accounts of the proceedings of Congress— if wor- thy of communication to the House they were worthy of being a£> ed upon. He would refer them to the Committee of Foreign Relations, with power to send for persons, papers, and ef- fects. He would decide * t once, and not omit till another day, lest the man should run away. Though branded as a traitor and spy by all- parts of the House, perhaps some valuable testimony may be gained from him. The debate continued till four o'clock, when it was unanimously voted to print the documents, and unanimously voted to refer them to the Committee of Foreign relations. LONDON, Wednesday, May 6. The administering of unlawful oaths has lately, as we stated yesterday, been carried to so great a length as to render the immediate interposition of the Legislature necessary. His Majesty's Minis- ters accordingly applied to Parliament yesterday for a legislative measure, the object of which is, to declare, that the administering or taking of oaths, which oaths bind the parties taking them, to the commission of acts which were already ca- pital felony by law, shall itself be. deemed and punished as a capital felony. Leave was given to brin^ g in the Bill. The following is the Oath : " T, A. S of my own voluntary will, do declare, and so- lemnly swear, that I never will reveal to any person or per- sons, in any place or places, under the canopy of Heaven, the names of any of the persons composing the. Secret Commit- tee, either by word, deed, sign, or by address, marks, com- plexion, or any other thing iead to the discovery of the same, Under the penalty of being put out of the world by the first Brother whom I meet, and having my name and chara< Ster blotted out of existence, or never remembered but with con- tempt and ignominy.— And I do further swear, that I will use my utmost endeavours to punish with death any Traitor or Traitors, who may rise up againsi u « , though he should fly to the verge of existence, t will pursue with unceasing vengeance.— So help me Ood to keep this Oath inviolate." It is now placed beyond all doubt, that it is neither the want of Work nor the price of provi- sions that have been the causes of the late disturb- ances. They have been instigated by persons who are as much the friends of France, as they are the foes of the deluded victims of their machina- tions. By destroying these machineries, which leave us without rivals, they attempt to do the business of Bonaparte, and they entail aggravated distress on the labouring classes; take away our machineries, and not one fifth of the" hands would be employed which are now employed Courier. The following letter informs us of a very gal- lant affair, the recapture of the Apelles, which we stated yesterday to have run ashore on the French coast:— " HEAL, MAY ,5. " Arrived the Rinaldo, Bermuda, Castillian, and Phipps, with the Apelles gun- brig, under ju- ry- masts, which they re- captured about three o'clock a. m. yesterday, having four Frenchmen on board, and a number of boats towing her in- to Etaples : she is supposed to have been dismast- ed in consequence of the blowing up of the Sky- lark, being alongside each other; both ships took the ground about three miles Eastward of Etap- les, within about half a musket shot of two gun battely, 36 pounders, and within pistol- shot of the beach, which was immediately lined with men armed with muskets, and in a short time some pieces of light anillery were brought down, which kept up an almost incessant lire on the two vessels. The perilous situation of the brig, and the ap- parent impossibility of getting the Skylark off, induced Captain Boxer, for the preservation of his men, to quit her; but Captain Hoffman's boats not being sufficiently large, and crowded to excess, amounting to imminent danger, to. get off all his men, and no doubt considering it his duty to be the last man to leave his vessel, he,, with the Purser ( who was slightly wounded), the Doftor, Mr Johnson, Midshipman, Mr. Tay- lor, Gunner, Mr. Whitcomb, Captain's Clerk, and fourteen seamen remained on board the Ape!-' les, and were all made prisoners. It is but justice to Captain Boxer to state, that after he had quitted the Skylark, on hailing one of the boats from the Apelles to know if Captain Hoffman had quitted the ship, and finding he had not, he, with the utmost bravery, and in the midst of a hot fire from the beach, returned to intreat Captain Hoffman to save himself, but that gallant officer declined the offer, as accommoda- tion could not be afforded to the whole of his comrades, who stood by him to share his fate. The crew of the Skylark and such of the Apel- les' boats as left the brig were picked up by the Nyniphe hired arned cutter, or in the overloaded and shattered condition they never could have reached the English coast." A curious circumstance occurred at the Bath Tavern, Bristol, on Monday night, about eleven o'clock. A young man, who has since been dis- covered to be a sailor, belonging to the Union ship of war, lying at Plymouth, went to bed ap- parently composed; buc before the servant had left the room five minutes, the house was alarm- ed by cries of " Help me out," and by the break- ing of glass, occasioned by his bursting through the sash. Though asleep, he continued walking from one roof to another, and along the narrow- est ridges, andjat length jumped from the surpris- ing height of thirty feet, without receiving any material injury. He was conveyed to bed, and left the inn sh « following morning for Plymouth. The detalU of the capture of the .. Rivoli have hepn received— they were brought by the Eagle, arrived at Bristol . from the Adriatic. The afhon was between the Victorious, of 74 guns, and the Weazle brig ; and the Rivoli, of SO guns, 862 men, Mercure, 18 guns, 143 men, Jean, 18 guns, Mameluc, 10, and two gun- boats. It was fought on the 22d February, in the Gulph of Trieste. At day- light, the Weazle came up with the Mercure and Mameluc, and after , an aflion of forty- five minutes, the Mercure blew tip, and three only of the crew were saved.— The Viftorious at the same time brought the Rivoli to a& ion j it continued four hours when she struck, having upwards of 100 killed and wound- edv She is a new ship, and had left Venibe the day before bound to Polar, commanded by Com- modore Barne, an excellent Officer. The other two frigates escaped into Trieste. General Lefe" bvre has broke his parole, and escaped from Cheltenham-, accompanied by bis wife; and it is supposed thev have an Englishman with then?. Hehas b° en- missing since Saturday.- DireSions'have been sent to ail the se- ports, to endeavour tn intercept them. The Gazette offers his Majesty's pardon and a reward of 102000 for the convi< ftlon'nf the persons who shot Mr. W. HorsfalJ, of Marsden, near Huddersfield, on Tuesday, of which wounds he Is since dead; also, jCfiOO reward, and a pardon, for the person who fired at Mr. W. Trentham, of Nottingham, Monday evening last, as he was knocking at his own door, and- wounded him, in the breast; rflOO for the person who discharged a gun at Mr. J. Raynor, of Lenthwaite, West Riding, on the 234 of April, the ba'l of which went through his hat > and- a 100 guineas and a pardori for the discovery of the persons who dis- charged a gun at Mr. E. Whitehead, deputy con- stable at Hudtfersfield, as he was going to bed, on the 15th April, ^ CAPTAIN MANBY'S INVENTION. On Saturday considerable numbers were at- tracted to Hyde- Park : by Captain Manby's ex- periments for saving the lives of shipwrecked persons. A, ltftlaaiteM- 2-- th< rDu£ e'o? York ar. rived, and the experiments commenced. The apparatus was placed. Oivthe soutfi- side of the Serpentine River, on . the level bankiiear the new watercourse ; a few of the Guards were stationed round it, to- keep off the multitude; and the circle was filled with some of our principal chemists and p- ople of distinction. The rope? attached to balls were coiled in different forms on the grass. The first experiment was, we presume, merely to shew die railgfi of the mortal, which threw a shell across the river, and to- a considerable distance on the rising groand to the north. A shot was then thrown with a rope attached to it, which fell with great precision at the water's edge on the oppo- site side. The shell was next' thrown in the di- rection of a tree, which was to represent the masts and rigging of a ship in distress. The shell fell entirely over the tree, and left the ropes hanging, as was intended, among the branches.' The neat-- ness and obvious u ility of this experiment excited great admiration. A young person, equipped In the life- preserver, then talked into the water, re- mained perfectly at his ease at a considerable distance from the side, blew a post- horn, moved his arms in all directions with complete facility, and concluded by swimming across in the direc- tion of the buoy which was fixed at the centre of the operation — These experiments were exhibited to the whole extent of Capt. Manby's inventions. The light- ball, which, on occasion of shipwrecks at night, is used to point- out the vessel to the people on shore, was thrown up to a considerable height, burst at its highest elevation, and poured down a shower of stars, which, .. in- - the darkrress of a tempestuous night, must have thrown power- ful illumination upon its object. The process of discharging ordnance without the application « f fire, is One of Captain ManbyV inventions, and one which will probably be of signal importance to the service; but the concep. tion of the plan for preserving human life, and that perhaps the most interesting and valuable species of human life, deserves a higher praise than our's. As no country has a finer and more useful race of men exposed to the perils of the sea, there is perhaps no shore on which, from the pe- culiar nature of its difficulties, the- invention can be applied with more entire success. The idea of forming a. communication with the vessel when no boat could venture to sea, was of itself honour- able to the person who conceived it ^ but the sub- sequent arrangements*— the contrivance at once delicate and durable, and the simplicity which now makes the whole apparatus at once within the compass of almost any purse, and the manage- ment of almost any hand, finish and complete the merit of the discovery. There is not a shore of Elirope on which it maytiot be established; and we must hope that no esertion of wise and active humanity will be wanting to its establishment on every pertioas distrtft of Our own. DUBLIN, - Saturday, May f>. Yesterday the Chancellor, Master of the Rolls, the twelve Judges, and the Bencher of the Society of King's Inns, met, to take under their consider- ation the subjefl matter of the Letter of Verner Maore, Esq. Barrister at Law, in which he charges the Honourable Baron M'Clellan'd vC'ith his con- duft to a Jury, and with having threatened to commit him, Mr. Moore, to the dock. Mr. Moore is said to have had notice to appear before the Benchers on Tuesday next. We understand, that Friday was the day that had been fixed for the bidding for the Irish Loan. There was but <> ne list, Gibbons and Williams* to bid, who appeared as bidders for a Loan of only one million and a half. Sir Charles Sa. tton declined receiving: any offer for a less sum than two millions; whereupon Messrs. Gibbons and ' Williams retired to consult with their friends, and returned afterwards to say, that they could not treat for a higher sum than one million and a half. Whereupon Sir C. Saxton repealed, that he could not receive their bidding, which teiniitwttd their treaty. CATHOLIC BOARD, FRIDAY, MAY' 8. MAJOR BRIAN, IN THE CHAIR. Dr. Drorngoole, in the absence of Mr. Hay, as Secretary, read the minutes of the procaedings of the former meeting. Mr. Lawless, read the following Address from the Committee :— r. '••"•. TO LOBOI DONOUGHMORE. " The services which your Lwrdstiip has performed for the Catholics of Ireland are so important and so m my, that a* if is our duty, so it ( is ouriw sh; to givfc utterance te the People's gratitude, and expression Jo tbs People'* feelings " In the execution of this task, we hope that those No- ble I. ords. who- have with Voo so eloquently defended our Cause, will not feel upwanang in gratitude to them, because we address ourselves particularly to your Lordship'.. We trust the sentiments we" fe'dt: and express for your LoriKhip's services, will be consi Jered by^ your Noble Colleagues equally dire< 5leif to them— and as your Lordship has been the able medium of our prayer to the Imperial Parliament, so you will be the represtntarive of that high regard and afdent. feeling with which we are imprsseed, for the able aud splendid advocacy that distinguished your powerful mi' norityi - ' " When we look back to that period at which Freedom bezan to dawn on our Catholic Countrymen, we can date the commencement of thoie h'onournble labours, which have raised your famdy ts their present station in public opinii. n —- We can trace them, step by step, pursuing their favorite object of equal liberty, and linking their own elevation with the triumph of our rights, and the union of Irishmen of every persuasion. Among that class of public men, who stood by the Catholics in the infancy of their struggles lor civil liberty, the family » f which you are now the dis- tinguished head, may justly claim the most exalted place — The light, which the fatl. er of that family so successfully shed over the cradle of the Catholic, pours, through his son, its strong and glowing radiance on the matured and full- grown intellect of Ireland, The spirit of Libt.- y, which would have broken those chains that bound the Genius of our Country to the earth— whirh would have raised up its almost exhausted energies— is the proud and distinguishing inheritance of your family, and promise-, to be the efficient instrument of our triumph. We are thus, my Lord, carried to the grave of your honoured parent, because we cannot refrain from holding in grateful remem- brance the principles of that man who gave to his country her b. st and most admired advocates. Like him, yotlr Lordship has pleaded our Cause with the spirit of a. manly and enlightened liberality, undismayed by power, ume-'. uc- ed by intreague, and uninfluenced by party. Your Lordship has demonstrated to; the Empirs the ascendancy of Truth over Falsehood, and of Candour over Dissimulation. Yon have proved to Englishmen that there is a spirit stilt remain- ing in the ashes of our Country, which would resist the per- secutions of Intolerance, and the idle and vaunting menaces of Despotism. . " Yonr Lordship has spoken the bold and manly language of the Constitution, when you declared thst maniac project you so ably . denounced—'" Resistance would be lawful, just, and necessary."— You have' proclaimed to an indignant Peo- ple the insulting threat, in the language of a mall who must be dreaded by our enemies, and- respedted by our friends.— You have penetrated into the recesses of darkness and in- trigue, to draw forth the cowardly Fanatic and the debauch- ed and empty Courtier. These are the services . which raise the country with the m'atl who performs tljem; these are services beyond the power of ramaneratiori. " The United voice of the Protestant Property and- Ta- lents, of, the- British Empift' now calls for the liberation of the Catholic. Your Lordship feels that' this voice must be attended, to— the triumph- of Liberality must be acknow- ledged— for even the Minister himself has lowered the cor I " " • • ' iurs; of Intolerance, and is almost willing to retire from so hopeless a confli' 5t. To" a mind like your Lordship's, the Freedom of, your Countrymen would be au ample reward— but rt is the principle, my Lord, of Irishmen, to po'ir forth their platitude to their benefactors, and it is. the distinguish- ing office of the Catholic Board to record it." ' TO THE RIGHT HON. HENRY GRATTAW. « The Catholic Eoard should have feebly discharged the • duty they owe to the People, with whose confidence they have been honored,' if they had omitted the first opportunity which presented itself, of sending forth to the British Em- pire, the warmest expressions ef their Thanks, for the late splendid and aitonishiug efforts of theit powerful and le- vered Advocate, in the Cause of the Catholics of Ireland. « Grateful is the task;, Sir, to be the chosen medium of, thst feeling, which now throbs ijn every bosom, and swell* in every heart. " Grateful is the task to be the organ of that proud and dignifying sentiment, which triumphantly claims Too, the unequalled Champion of Irish' Rights—. which now calls you the Hope of the British Empire, and holds you up to, your Countrymen, js ON • of those firm and unbending Anchors by which that Empire is to be steadied in the storm that blows round her. Buts., S| r,. dofibly grateftti is the task, to generous minds, of' remunerating an age of services, by tlie ardent and passionate hontaga of the heart, and of putting on the records of our History the Thanks of a calumniated and injared People, to him who has devoted gigaotic ta- lents, and 9potless integrity, to the vindication of their feel- ings, and the assertion of their RIGHTS.— Rising in your efforts, with the difficulties of yoor Country, you have call- ed back our memories to that glowing period of oer His- tory, when every heart hung with rapture upon your word* when every eye beamed at your name— and every Pea- sant in the Land wa ked firm and ereift, under the proud feeling your eloquence created, tn the enthusiasm of the present moment, we imagine che regeneration oi our Free- dom, and are almost seduced to believe, that the Genius of Ireland has < j> nly extended the circle of her power frsm a Kingdom to an Empire. Such is the fasdnation of an elo- quence, which at once delights, persuades, and instructs— which is unwearied in the vindication of the injured, aiid unconquerable in the Cause of Justice. " In 1792, you told the Irish Legislature, and the English : Secretary, that CATHOLIC EMANCIPATION would enrich 1 the Protestant, and communicate strength and vigour to the I Empire. The Protestant Property ef Ireland ha « more than i doubled by the Emancipating Bill of 1703— and Jtlie Catbu- j lie People of Ireland advanced in numbers, in prosperity, and in chara& er. That Country, which for six hundred ye » r » , was a burthen to the English Minister, became an ex- lountain of supply— the unclog^ si industry of Ireland pour- ed f » ith its offerings of gratitude, and repaid, with a miser's profit, the blessings of her Freedom. Such was the effe& of that Liberty, of which you were 11* great and eloquent Parent— such the effect of that policy, which you have la- boured to preserve and tittnd. The Union, it is true, has thrown down th » noble edifice, which yoo had so gloriously eredled— and now the question, remains to be derided, whether the wisdom of the Imperial Parliament will throw the Freedom of the Catholic into the scale, against the injuries of the Union ? But why a6k the : question ?— The last struggle— your commanding Minority , of tit/ o'hundred and fftcen, has been the viftory ot Reason, of f Eloquence, and of Truth, standing at the head of the. Pro- testant Property— of the Protestant Rank— of the Protestant i Character of the British Empire; you may securely proclaim j the triumph of your favourite Came to an admiring World, Like Fox, y » ur great and immortal predecessor, your last | and greatest glory will he, the striking off the chains ol iu- j tolerance from millions of your Fellow- creatures. " The Children of Ireland, yet unborn, will be taught to lisp the name of Grattan,} and her grtltitude, as lasiin;; and j as fruitful as her soil, will preserve the memory of that Man, who, for f » rty years, pleaded her cause with an elo- quence unequ; illed— 3 spirit ui'diUnted— and a patience un- , conquered and unconquerable." After a few Words bom Counsellors O'Contiell, O'Gorman and Finn, the Addresses were adopted* The Address to the Dufce of Susser had nr.* been prepared, in conserfnecce of the indisposition of the Gentleman who. had undettaketi to submit | an outline of it to the Comrtimee— it v as under- stood that an Address would be ready on tbeneit day of meeting.

FRENCH FLEET IN THE WEST- INDTES " PORT GLASGOW, MAY 4. " Yesterday arrived the Pilgrim, Patterson, from Guadalonpe— Sailed th& 23d ult. Captain Pat- terson reports that when he left the West- Indies Admiral Laforey had sailed in the Dragon man of war, with all the squadron, in pursuit of two French frigates and a brig, said to have troops on board, who had burnt several Americans, tha crews of some of them having landed at St. Bar- tholomew's. No advice of any British vessels having been captured by thera." From the above there appears lit tie- doubt of a French squsdron in the West Indies. \ Ve have received some more- Paris Papers.—. We learn from them that a very large Austrian force is tfollefled in Gallicia. Bon,-. parte still re- mains at Paris—( Sun). A ship has arrived to- day from the B i'Aic, la- den with grain— and we learn, from a qn. r - r certainly the best informed on the lubieat,' that several more vessels, wit!> the same prod a,;, and from the same sea, may be daily expected. The quantity of this necessary commodity in the Bal- tic exceeds all ordinary computation— and if the ships can make their escape u: ider the present circumstances, our fears of a scarcity will be con- siderably alleviated, if not removed. In the House of Commons, Mr. Cre » vey gave notice last night of a Motion, having for its ob- jeft the recal of Sir G. Barlow from the Govern- ment of Madras. " ROMAN CATHOLIC CLAIMS. The following very important notification wag made to the House of Commons on Wednesday evening1 by Mr. Canning :— Mr. CANNING said, " I rise, Sir, for the pur- pose of giving notice, that before the conclusion of the present Session, I shall submit to the House, asubjeft, which has, indeed, already been decided, but with respeft to which, from the cum pi >: ion of thf debate on that occasion, I entertain ii strong hope that Parliament may not be di'l- cR.- vrl tin- der its high authority, to recommend the' ma ter, during the ensuing recess, to the consideration pf the Executive Government— I allude to the pie- sent state of the penstl laws affetfing the R man Catholic subj. e£ b of the Crown. It is'my inters tiou to propose an address to the Prince praying his Rtjydl' Highness to take the subj'ett under his review, in such a way as may'to him seem best, and especially with the design of ascer- taining the nature and extent of such securities as might be necessary for fencing the est tbK- hraeiw, in case of further Concession to the Catholics. " A call having been direfted for the 27th of this month, I shall . take the vacant day immedi- ately following, on which notices have the prece- dence of the orders of the d2yHear, hear). It was definitively stated by Mr. Perceval in the House of Commons, that the business of the East India Company's Charter coold not be sub- mitted to Parliament in the ptesent Session.— There was a Court of Proprietors at the East India House yesterday, for the further considera- tion of this business, when some strong Resolu- tions were adopted, against the determination of the Government, particularly insomnch as it goe* to'admitting the outports to participate in the im- port trade, and to allow importations to be made in small ships. The House went into a Committer on. the Irish Distillery Bill, when Mr. P^ LE moved to repeal- the duty on wash fio w grain ; and proposed to put the duty on sugar, on a level with that of grain, making each 3s• 8< I.— Agreed to. , A Petition was presented by Lord Walsinghar » from the Bishops pf Meath and Kildare, claiming ^ precedence, un4er the AFL of Union, after the Bishops of London, Winchester, and Durham, and before the other Suffragan Bishops, they being entitled to ptecedence in Ireland befote the other, Suffragan Bishops of the Established Chwcb.^- Ordered to lie on the table. - w— BELFAST ' COMMERCIAL CHRONICLE Yesterday a very excellent Charity Sermon was preached in the Parish Church, by the Rev. DEAN BLAKELY, who, taking for his text the 4th chapter of the Ist Epistle of John, 11th verse— " Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another," in a style of impressive elo- quence, urged strongly the necessity of providing for the support and education of the helpless orphan, and fnrthe relief of the aged and infirm, who, being visited with adversity, sought, in this safe asylum, so creditable to Belfast, the only refuge left them from want and misery— The Reverend Dean concluded a most pathetic ap- peal to the benevolence of hi. audience, by stating the urgent necessity of liberal contributions, which were more than usually called for, from the very enhanced price of most of the necessaries of life, and the encreased demands on this charitable fund.— The Colleflion, we understand, amounted to £) 57, 18/. 2\ d. Among the Gentlemen who cnlletfed, we noticed, the Marquis of Donegal!, General Mitchell, the Hon. Mr. Skeffington, Mr. Verner, Mr. Dobbs, arid Mr. Hu. Crawtoid. We understand that Mr. Knowles, who so suc- cessfully arranged for dramatic representat - in that popul. ir part of Irish History where Brian Boroibnie st.'. nds so conspicuous, will produce a new S? rio- Comic Romance on Wednesday even- ing, for Mr. Thomson's benefit, called Leo; or Nature and the Force of Love. From the specimen the public havefhad of that Gentleman's talent for dramatic composition, we hope it will meet that J emulative encouragement which our countrymen 1 are so apt to give " a spark of nuive genius." A letter from Liverpool, dated on Thursday, XBentinnt, that about five hundred persons had coilefled at Mr. M. Gladstone's ropery, where pa- tent machinery is used, wiih the intent, it is sup- posed, of destroying the same, but dispersed with- out doing any matPtial dumage. Mr. Gladstone has pUct.- d a guard in the walks. By the late Census, there are in the United States 14,074 more females than males, betwem the age of 26 and 16— between 16 and 10 the males exceed the females, 19,859} and of 10 years and under the nules also etrceed the Tetn. iles, 53,852— Girls will, of course, in a short time, be in good demand, though the market appeirs to be well supplied at present. Method of immediately discovering Forged Notes;-— If the hand is wetted and rubbed hard upon the figured part of the note, the whole will become confused if the note is bad; for in such the In- dia ink has not been mixed with that oil, which renders those of the good notes durable after be- ing so wetted and rubbed. This is the case with those forged by the French prisoners. The Treasurer of the House of Industry has received for the use of said Institution, from Cortland Skinner, Esq. jf 11, Is. 6d. being fines levied by him, and which he requests may be applied in purchasing food for the poor, and for which the Committee return him thanks.

His convalescence was tardy, and I found he had formerly been subjeift to tape- worm. I now prescribed half an onnce of of turpentine to be taken alone. He was soon after affected with nausea and uneasiness in the stomach, succeeded by vomiting ; in twelve hours the cathartic effect was produced, and he voided a tape- worm three yards long ; the head could not be discovered. In two days he repeat- ed the turpentine with similar effect, except that no vestige of worm appeared. In five days more, he took six drams of the oil for a dose. Twelve months have elapsed, and he has remained quite free from complaint. A young woman some time ago came under my care for cough and debility after a fever, dur- ing which she had taken several opening medi- cines. Under a course of myrrh and steel she re- gained some degree of strength and appetite, but complained of a pain in the abdomen, and men- tioned having been subjefl to worms. A large dose of calomel and sc. immony afled powerfully on the bowels, without any worm appearing. The following day she took half an ounce of oil of tur- pentine, which only produced sickness : the scam- mony and calomel was repeated in twelve hours, and a tape- worm nine feet in length was discharg- ed, since which she has entirely recovered. Many similar instances might be adduced, from which we may infer that the oil of turpentine, in large doses, has a specific effefl 011 tape- worm, and, if existing in the body, will certainly remove it. The remedy is less nauseous than is common- ly supposed, and in general has produced no un- pleasant consequences. Some praftitioners have given it in yet larger doses, but I have hitherto found from half an ounce to six drams suffice— One great advantage in taking it is, that one or two dttses will usually be effeflual, and, if no worm is evacuated after it, we may decidedly cfonclude that none existed ; hence the importance of being quite assured, before prescribing such a strong remedy, that the patient's symptoms are occasion- ed by toenia. Many people endure much misery, and take a variety of medicines, whose complaints originate from worms. When Sparman visited H the Cape of Good Hope, he found numbers of the inhabitants keeping themselves weak and low by a spare diet, and remedies against consumption of the lungs j and persevering in this treatment, al- though the longer they continued it the worse they grew, till he satisfactorily proved to them that they wera only affefled with tape- worm, of which, though very common amongst the colonists, they were extremely ignorant. Taenia is also very fre- quent among the natives of Egypt and Abyssinia. VARIETIES, LITERARY AND PHILOSOPHICAL. [ rrwi the London Monthly ATafrazini,'] A Committre of the Bristol merchants have published a report relative to the monopoly of the Ea; t India Company, in which they insist, with great force and success, en the necessity of open, ing to the whole empire the trade with India.— They coniend, that the charter expires of course, that the country have nothing to ask, and the com- pany every thing. It is indeed very evident, that the export of less than two millions per annum, renders the company unworthy of the monopoly they have enjoyed, and that a free trade to Asia anil Eastern Africa, would be more likely to take off twenty millions per annum of our manufac- tures. In our opinion, to renew the charter, would be to sacrifice the interests of the country to po- litic:-,' intrigue. Let the manufacturers and mer- chants therefore bestir themselves. Liverpool took the lead on this great question, and set an example of ability which has been ably followed by Bristol, Hull, Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester, and other commercial towns; and, for our parts, we think no case was ever better made out than this against the East India monopoly, if faffs and ar- guments have any weight with those who direft the British government. Let the City of London beware of sophistry on this occasion. It is true, the company's monopoly is localized in London ; but, if destroyed, the London merchants would export, at le- ist TEN millions to India, instead of the TWO through the Company. By a late official document, it appears that, " as to the proctuflions of India, valuable for fo- reign commerce, the trade of Europeans, of dif- ferent nations, to all parts of it, in the course of the last three centuries, have left'little for disco- very. The Portuguese, who, in their early time, spread themselves along all the shjores of the East, explored every considerable part of it, and they were followed by the Dutch, English, and French, companies, with their numerous establishments, some of which extended inland to the Upper In- dia, But the modern European merchants, resi- dent in the East, win) have long been the chief navigators and adventurers in what is called the coasting trade, have become well acquainted with the commercial capacity of every region washed by the Indian Seasj so that many countries sup- posed here to be little known, because little visited by the ships of Europe, are familiar to them ; and • whatever articles those countries furnish, valuable for the commerce of the West, are already con- veyed, through the medium of private or foreign trade to Europe. The chief commodities suited to the European market, which India has hitherto been found to produce, are spices, pepper, drugs, sugar, cof- fee. raw- silk, saltpetre, indigo, raw cottOH, and, above all, cotton manufactures of singular beau, ty and in endless variety. These last have, as already intimated, formed, from time immemori- al, the grand staple of India ; but from the rise and excellence of similar manufactures in'Europe, particularly in cur own coantry, and from the general impoverishment which Wars and revoluti- ons have brought upon the continent of Europe, with the obstructions opposed, in much the great- er part of it, to o* r commerce, the consumption of the fine fabrics of India has considerably de- creased, and it is not likely that it can be Restor- ed to its former standard. Spices, sugar, and coffee, have been furnished chiefly from the Moluccas and Java, Dutch Islands not in our possesion, nor in a commercial view, worth the expence of conquering and keeping them.— » ~ The cinnamon of Ceylon, now ouis, may b » A Poem, entitled India, will make its appear- ance in a few weeks.

Mr. Crease, of West Suiithfield, London, has lately invented a paint, for in- door use, which, is stated to possess no noxious smell, and to partake ( in other respects of the qualities of the best dead- white paint. Mrs. Knapp, a lady of respeflable family, and superior education, who has for some time been in the practice of midwifery, intends during the present month ( May) to give a caursc of leftures to ladies, on thefmeans of preserving the|! iealih of mothers and infants. The leisures are intended to afford that medical and anatomical ins< ruc1ir> n to females, which they have in general but little opportunity of acquiring. She has been assisted by the personal friendship of several medical men rvf great eminence in their profession. The lec- tures will be given at her house, in Percy street, Bedford- square, London. An original and splendid work will speedily ap- pear in parts, on the Border Antiquities of Eng- land znd Scotland ; comprising specimens of the architefl'ure, sculpture, and other vestiges, of for- mer ages, from the earliest times to the union of the two crowns; accompanied with descriptive sketches, and biographical remaiks.

The promised work on the Calamities of Au- thors, including some inquiries respefling their Moral and Literary Charatfers, by the author of Curiosities of Literature, has been some time in the press, and will shortly appear.

The Interrogatory System of Instruftion, as contained in BlaTi's Universal Preceptor, Adair's j- and Barrow's Questions, and Goldsmith's British 1 Geography, has lately been introduced into Win- chester new school, with the happiest effeifs. Advices had been received at Frankfort, an- nouncing that the celebrated German traveller, Hornemsnn, who, about ten years ago, set cut from Cairo, to discover antiquities, and explore the interior of Africa, was at Murzcukv in the kingdom of Fezzan, where he enjoyed the confi- dence of the Sultan, and afted as bis Minister— From the long period which had elapsed since any intelligence was heard of him, it was generally concluded by the literati in Europe, that he had perished. By the assiduity of the Danish Government, the Vaccine Inoculation has been so thoroughly intro duced among the population, that, during the course of the year 1811, there has not been a sin- gle case of suiall pox in Copenhagen. The experiments of Professor Leslie, to pro- duce ice by evaporation in the air pump, have been varied and extended in France by Messrs. Clement and Desormes: they have proposed to apply the evaportion, in vacuo, on a large scale, to the drying of gunpowder; which, being done without fire, will be attended with no danger. The French chemists are engaged in endeavour, ing to apply the evaporation in vacuo ( before Istated) to the drying and preserving fruit and ve- getables. It may be easily conceived of what ad- | vantage this process may be, particularly in the brought, in sufficient quantity for the supply of Europe, in one or two of the Company's ships. Pepper is a very losing article. Sugar has been, of late, imported from our territories'; but the ne- cessary expence of conveyance from so great a distance, prevents it from being profitable, and it can be much encouraged only at the expence of our West India colonies. Raw- silk and indigo now produced in great perfeflion in Bengal and its dependencies, have been brought to that state, by the expence incurred, and the support afford- ed, by the Company. Both are articles occupy- ing little space, in proportion to their value. The faftories where the former is collefled and pre- pared are in the hands of the Company, who have, in the course of many years, established them with great labour and expence. They can furnish not only all the raw- silk this country re- quires, but much for the consumption of the Con- 1 tinent, if it were possible to bring it there into competition with the raw- silk of Italy, and the • tonnage already employed by the Company is quite sufficient for its importation from India. The indigo prodnced in Bengal and the adjacent provinces is equal, probably, to three fourths of the demand of all Europe, and may easily be rais- ed to the whole demand ; but the manufaflure of this article is entirely, and the trade in it chiefly, in the hands of individuals. Saltpetre, furnished only from Bengal, is, for political reasons, pro- hibited to foreigners, and exported exclusively in the ships of the Company." The total quantity of wines entered at the Oporto custom- house in 1811, for foreign coun- tries, was 18,536 pipes and a half; of this quan- tity were sent to England 18,379 pipes and a half; America, 64 and a half; Gibraltar, 89 ; Galicia, three and a half. In 1309, there were shipped for exportation 58,458 pipes, of which 42,963 pipes were for England; and in 1810, 41,358 pipes were shipped, of which 40,765 was on English account.

From this report, which is official, and may be considered as the bar. meter of the staple trade of the united kingdom, it appears that the total decrease in the quantity of woollens manufactur- ed in the year that, has just terminated, on a com- parison with the year preceding, is 20,215 pieces, making 600.760 yards; but, in order to form a corrcec view of the progress of trade, under the rule of our orders ill council ministry, it is neces- sary to add, that the decrease in the year with which this is compared, as contrasted with the re- turns of 1810, was 31,234 pieces, making 925,957 yards, so that since 1810, the annual declension in this important branch of business, on which thousands depend for support, has been 51,449 pieces, or 1,526,717 yards, an amount exceed- ing on^- tenth of the whole quantity at present manufactured J REPORT OF DISEASES, I » th PraMu of * Ptyiieian, in lVeitmimtcr, from tie 20lb of Xiarfi H tut 20It of April, 1812. The weather continues favourable to the pro. duffion of rheumatic and catarrhal affeflions.— Some cat. es of continued lever have occurred, but not in a malignant form. The case of taenia ( tape- worm) afforded ano- ther instance of success with the oil of turpentine; which I have never known to fail in expelling the worm, provided it existed in the alimentary canal. The patient, a young woman, of sallow com- plexion, had long complained of a gnawing pain about the pit of the stomach, and abdomen, with occasional indigestion, irregular appetite, and con- stipation. I direfted her to take half an ounce of the rectified oil of turpentine, with half as much treacle. In a few hours, afier esciting a slight degree of nausea, it ailed as a cathartic, and be- tween two or three yards of tape worm were pass- ed. In two days, her symptoms still continuing, though less urgent, she took six drams of the oil, which operated as before, but not the least por. tion of. worm appeared. Notwithstanding the sue cess of the remedy, she still remained indisposed, complaining of sickness, and her complexion as- sumed a yellow tinge, which indicated jaundice; from which she is recovering under the use of small doses of calomel and rhubarb, with tonics. The oil of turpen ine seems to operate as a poi. un on the worm, and does not expel it by merely ailing as a cathartic, for in general it resists the aflion of common purgatives. I attended a young man in scarlet fever, during which he took several doses of calomel and rhubarb, with, tke usual ef- army and navy, by preserving, unchanged, alimen- tary substances, and alio by diminishing their weight and bulk, when they are to be sent to dis- tant parts of the world. Mr. Brodie has made additional experiments of the effefts of various poisons on different ani- mals. It appears that the slight inflammation-! which occurs in the stomach, after taking poison nto it, is not sufficient to occasion death; but that it is the palsying power of the drugs on the nervous system, and on the blood which, de- stroys life. EAST INDIES.—. Tussoodanundun Muhapater, one of the principal landholders of the dist'iif of Mednepoor, being required to attend the Zillah court, was reported, when called upon, to be asleep, and unable to make his appearance. A man in court hearing this excuse, observed, " Oh ! if that be the case. it will be some days before he awakes." The curiosity of Mr. Rees, the judge and magis- trate, being excited by the answers he received to his questions upon the stibjei), he proposed to me a visit to the man, with a view to inquire into this extraordinary circumstance, and afford any relief that might be required. We accordingly went to the man's house that afternoon. We found Juss'jodanundun upon a bed in his dormitory, in | j » ound sleep, surrounded by a number of friends: and relations. His pulse and breathing were scarcely perceptible, and in this state he remained two days and a half, and two nights, without mo- , tior, without taking any sustenance, or performing , any of the animal functions. He was bled, but1 it was with difficulty that about ten ounces of blood were procured ; various external stimuli were em- ployed, and an emetic administered. By this means his pulse was considerably increased in strength, and his breathing became more percep- tible; and once the stimulus applied to the nose, occasioned sneering, but he still continued in a sound sleep. Having dire& ed a repetition of the emetic, the first producing no effedl, we left him, expefling that he would soon be disturbed by its operation ; this, however, was not the case, for though he vomited three times, it occasioned no interruption to his slumber. The next morning the usual symptoms of returning animation, name- ly, great of the legs and feet, were observed; and, as his attendants said, he would probably awake twelve o'clock, no further endeavours to rouse him were employed. About twelve, as was predicted, he awoke as from a common sleep, with his usual unconsciousness of the lapse of time, having slept three nights and three days and a half. Jussoo- danundun Muhapater is a man nearly fifty years of age, strongly made, and corpulent. He re- lates, that about the age of one or two and thirty, he first became affedled in this extraordinary man- ner, without being able ever to conjeflure from what cause it originated. During thirteen years, these fits of sleep continued seven and sometimes eight days, with seldom more than ten or twelve days interval; for the last four years, the periods of sleep have decreased to four, and rarely exceed five, days. He states that, during these fits, he has never dreamt, or been conscious of the slightest degree of animation. The common methods of disturbing sleep have constantly and icieftedlually been resorted to; juch as tumbling him about, shouting, & c. and a gun has been fired close to his ear, without producing the desired effeft. At the termination of the sleep, he rises wholly uncon- scious of having passed more than a common night's rest; and the oniy inconvenience . he ex- periences, in consequence, is a great degree of las- situde the following day. His general health is good, and he enjoys ordinary rest at nights, during what may be called his interval of watching. MISCELLANEOUS.' There is a man named Richard Scott, now liv. ing in Maryport, who has been employed by the Curwens, of Workington- Hall, for 55 years, and in that time has never lost a day's wages. For the last 27 years he has walked 29,172 miles to and from his work, at which he still continues, though 80 years of age. Mr. Bowman, of Irthington, who lately attain ed his 107th year, can shave himseFf with ease and expedition, and read the smallest print without the assistance of glasses; he has his hearing in perfedlion, sleeps soundly, and never knew an hour's sickness. He can contest the palm of la- bour with the most robust young men of the dis- tri£, whether it be in the operation of mowing, hedging, thrashing, & c.} during the winter he employed himself in daily breaking the ice with a spade in order to water his cattle; and, that he might not be idle, mucled the byre in the interval. The hair- dressers of Boston, at the suggestion of some Magistrates and Gentleman of the town, overflowing with religious zeal, have come to the resolution of not attending any person on the Sabbath! At the Warwick Assises, the Rev. W. Brookes was tried for the murder of Hannah Miller, aged 14, by shooting her with a pistol. The prisoner, without any cause, had shot the poor girl twice; but it was proved on the clearest evidence, that he bad long been insane, and the jury found a verdift accordingly. On being asked the cause of his rashness, he said he shot her because he loved her. She was his servant. At the Gloucester Assizes, M. Broneville, a sweep, was tried for the murder of his apprentice, aged 10. The boy had attempted to run away, on which he beat him in a most cruel manner, threw htm into the canal, and when nearly drowned carried him across his shoulders, with his head downwards?: the lad died before he reached home. The prisoner addressed the Jury at some length, in a very pertinent speech, methodically arranged, and delivered with great firmness. He was found guilty; but, in consequence of souie peculiar cir- cumstances in his favour, was reprieved. LONGEVITY.— There are now living in the healthy parish of Benenden, in Kent, fifty persons between the age of seventy and eighty years; twenty- one between eighty and ninety years, and two between ninety and one hundred years. The soldier, who failed in his duty when the populace attacked Mr. Cattwright's, at RawfolJs, ! has been tried by a Court Martial, and sentenced to receive three hundred lashes. On Monday last, I he was mrrched to Rawfolds to receive his sen- tence j— but, owing to Mr. C.' s humane inter- jj ference, the punishment was mitigated to 25 Lshes. On Monday last, the hull of an old vrssel, which had been hauled out of the Q ieeo's D^ c1:, Liverpool, in order that she might float down the river to a ship- yard near ; he Fort, for the purpose of being broken up, was_ driven from her anchor, and the tide setting strongly out, was carried past the rock and out to sea. There were neatly 20 persons on board her, consisting of sailors, ct - penters, riggers, fltc. who were to be employed in breaking up the vessel, and who were thus carried out to sea without masts, sails, or ot'i > r necessa- ries. Luckily they were soon relieved from th; 9 perilous situation, and we believe have all return- ed to Liverpool, but we have not h , trd wh it has become of trie shin. Last week three soldiers attempted to steal some faggots from a stack belonging to a urn of the name of Jones, who keeps the turnpike at Hythe, on the Ashford road. The family had just retired to bed, but hearing a noise, and sus- pecting the cause, from their having received a si- milar visit the night before; the man, his wife, an I son, put on their great coats, and went out; a scuffi » ensued, Jones and his son were knocked down by the soldiers, when the woman attacked one of them, and falling with him into a ditch, broke her leg ; the man endeavoured to get off. but she helcf him firm with one hand, and supported ht- r broken leg with the other, till he was seen red and taken into custody by the Staff Corps, guard ; the other two escaped. In consequence of a reward of ^ 200 offered fir the apprehension of the noted robber Bulger, he was taken into custody on Tuesday. A fair one with whom he resided is supposed to have ac'ed the part of a Delilah on the occasion. When the officers entered the room in which he was, he » e: z- ed a large horse pistol and presented it, swearing he should sell his life as dear as possible ; but luckily both for him and his pursuers, precaution had been taken to make the powder sufficiently wet to prevent its taking fire, and an enormous brass blunderbuss ( now identified as alienated property), with which he likewise took aim, was perfeflly harmless from the same cause— hU fair friend probably wishing to pieyeut him from add- ing murder to the list of his crimes a he imme- diately betook himself to his sword, and sewer it desperate wounds were given and received before he could be brought to surrender. It is said he has turned King's evidence, and that the gang, of which he was the leader, will be now com- pletely extirpated. About six weeks ago, Michael Cummins, aged six years, and who lived in Arundel- square, wa< unfortunately bitten by a mad dog. Until Ft i- day last, no symptoms of distemper appeared, and his relatives had ceased to entertain any feats with respect to him. On that day, however, he was taken ill, and exhibited appeal auces which speedily terminated in a confirmed and incurable hydrophobia. On water being brought near him, he manifested the strongest fee art gs of lloircr,' and was almost immediately thrown into como ',- sions. On Tuesday, he was relieved from Lis sufferance by death.
