One o^ the executioner'g inen then got into the c itt, and covered the body with a Sack. The cart then drove off, down New. gate- street, up St. Marin's le Grand, down Little Britain, and the Body was removed into the Hos- pital by the gateway in B 11- yard. The sack wa* occasionally removed from the body td atFord a view of the visage, as the catt moved through the streets. The body Was instantly conveyed into the Anatomical Theatre, at St. Bartholomew's, which was already crowded with spectators, mostly wo believe of the Medical Profession. The clothes having been removed by the executioner and his man, the body was laid on the dissecting table irf the centre of the Theatre, and Sir Win.

On parting with them, he pro- ceeded towards Ancoats, to escort a young Wo- man ( his cousin) home, when he was followed by the villains, who, after striking him violently, as his bruises exhibit, effected their purpose, and threw him into the canal. The young Woman, who was with him, knew too much of the affair for the safety of the murderers; arid she also shared the fate of her cousin. The assassins then ran off. The dries of the poor sufferers, whea struggling with their murderers, had alvntsd the people in the neighbouring houses j but such wa » the terror of the scene, and the horror which w; ts created by the awful aspect of the times, they durst not, for some time1, give an alarm. When they did this, a party of the guard from the regi- ment to which the unfortunate man belonged, came to the Canal, a id, after dragging for somj time, his body Was discovered, and taken out of the water.

In the Gazette of last night, a reward of One Thousand Pounds, is offered for discovering the author OT authors, of two anonymous letters, ad- dressed respectively to Col.

There may be found, in every country, miscreants equal to compositions of this diabolical tendency, but the impression on the public mind, regarding the publication o: these Letters is, that no beneficial result is likely to a>- ise, ' from giving publicity to such atrocious productions.

To judge from the representation of the foreign Journals, war between France and Russia is now inevitable ; it is certain that the Emperor Alex ander set out from Petersburgh on the 21st ult. N. S. to join the army on the frontiers; yet, were we to hazard an opinion, we should doubt whether a pacific arrangement of some sort would not yet take place between the two Emperors. We are led to this opinion from the knowledge we hive of the cbarafler of those Counsellors whom Alexander has carried along with him ; and who, if we have not been much misinformed, have uniformly aCted as the sirpportets of B"> na. pane's measures in Rus- ia. We are sorry at the same time to understand, « h at Mr. Thornton's mission to Stockholm is not likely to be attended with the desired success This failure s the consequence of refusing sub- sidies, till something more'than promises evince the sincerity of the parties soliciting them. We thir!: the members entitled to praise for their pru- dent precaution after the many disappointments they have experienced on. former occasions by p'acing too much confidence in the parties with whom thty were entering into alliance. The M'oniteur of the 8' h has pub'ished the man- ly Declaration of our Government pf- the 21st April, with copious notes. They proceed upon much the same grounds Snd reasoning as the Re- port to the Conservative Senate, to' which our Declaration was the reply and the refutation — While tht j' inveigh against the Orders in Council, they pmve that they were equally founded in wis- dom : nd justice; and they confess that the opera, tion pfthem is to secure to Great Britain the sove- reignty of the seas. The Treaty of Utrecht is again alluded to ; but not the least allusion or comment is made upon the irrefragable argument in our declara. tion, that Bonaparte had no right t » revert to the provisions of th^ t treaty, which he expressly re- fused to renew in the only trt'aty he ever made vi'h us, the Treaty of Amiens. Besides, if ha has a right to refer to ' hat treaty for one purpose, we have as good a right to refer to it for another— and we might say that that treaty solemnly sti- pulated that the Crowns of France and Spain should never be upon the same head, or in the same" family. The same treaty guaranteed the independence of the United Plovinr. ed, a » d the dif- feient German States. But with respefl to the Berlin and Milan De- crees, which he said were revoked from Novem- ber, 1810, and which America as- tired us were revoked from that time, calling up. n us to rescind our Orders in Council before the end of February 1811,- the Moniteur now declares, that those De- cree? were only revoked with respeCt to the Ame- ricans really and without restrictions., on the 28th April, 1811— thus affording us another proof, that, had we aCted upon the belief that they were repealed in November, 1810, we should have been most egregiotisly duped. But are they repealed now ? The Moniteur declares to us distinaiy that they are not, and that they are not to be revoked till our Orders in Council are revoked. It is im- possible to put any other construction on the con- cluding sentence of these Notes in the Mtniteur. « Let ' England revoke her new Legislation of Blockade and her Orders of Council, and the Ber- lin and Milan Decrees • will be annulled; and all neutrals treated in Fiance as they wete previous to the present war." As to the assertions, that the Continent can do without our manufactures, their own equalling outs— that West India sugar will he rendered useless by the cultivation of Beet- root, and Indigo be. supplied by woad, we con- sider them as too childish, aud absurd to deserve the least notice. Upon a door in the parish of Chiistehurch, Surrey, is the following obliging communication : —." Theivej will please to take care of dogs, rat. ties, men- traps, and blunderbusses.'' Whether the thieves are to be equally careful, of other articles » net mentioned. v We have this morning been favoured, through the kindness of a friend Liverpool, with sets of American Papers to the 19th April. .• Every article contained in these Papers, both federal and democratic, tends to confirm the idea repeatedly held out in our columns, that there will be no war. In faCt, Commissioners, to arrange the basis of a permanent and friendly tre ty be- tween the two countries, may be daily expeftel in London. In the mean time, the Non- importation Art will certainly be partially repealed. The British packet, which was to have sailed on the 18th from New- Yotk, was detained to the 25 h, with a view, it was said, to give time to Mr. Ma- dison to prepare some half- conciliatory overtures to the British Government-: and the Captain of the Northern Liberties, the vessel which has ar- rived at Liverpool, states, that the great man just alluded to, has formally disavowed the procedure of taking possession of Amelia Island; and that the document containing his disavowal was pub- lished in an American Paper of the 16th ult. which he had seen. A Paper of that date, which has come to our hands, has the following article : " We ftfcl much pleasure in stating to our Readers, that the President wholly disapproves of the condftCt of the Officers of the United States, who participated with an unprincipled banditti in usurping the Government of Amelia Island." From the above and other American Papers, we take the following extracts:-—. " KKW- YORK GAZETTE, APRIL 13. " The law lately passed in secret session for re- ducing the army, before it was raised, shews that ' war is at least postponed, if not entirely relin- quished. " From a sketch of the proceedings of Congress on Thursday, and from the rematks in the Na- tional Intelligencer, there is at least the appearance of better times. Let war be avoided. The voice of the people is for peace. The prosperity of the country depends upon it. Let the EleCtOrs of this State follow the example of the people of Massa- ehussets, and we shall get rid of' Restrictive mea- sures,' and secure the peace, prosperity, and the happiness of these United States. We have had experimentalists long enough at the head of our affairs." ___ MARQUIS WELLESLEY. STATEMENT OF THE CAUSES OF LORD WELLES- IEY'S RESIGNATION. [ PUBUSHED FROM AUTHORITY J " Lord Wellesley expressed his indention to re- sign, because his general opinions, . for a long time past, on various important questiods, had nat suf- ficient weight to justify him towards the public, or towards his own character, in continuing in office; and because lie had n » hope of obtaining from ihe Cabinet ( as then constituted} a greater portion of attention than he had already experienced. « < Lord Wellesley's objections to remaining in the Cabinet arose, in a great degree, from thentr- rutv and imperfuct sole on which the effo: ts in the Peninsula were conduced. It was always stat- ed to him by Mr. Perceval, thai it < was itnpraciicaUi to enlarge that system. The Cabinet followed Mr; Perceval implicitly. Lotd WelleJey thought that it was perfectly practicable to extend the plan in the Peninsula ; and that it was neither safe nor honest towards this country or the Allies, to continue the ntesent contracted scheme. No hope existed of converting Mr. Perceval, or any of his colleagues; no alterative, therefore, remained for Lord Wcl- lesley but to resign, or to submit to be the instru- ment of a system, which he never advised, and which be could not approve. " Lord Wellesley had repeatedly, wiih great reluctance, yielded his opinions to - he Cabinet on many other important points. He was sincerely convinced by experience, that in every such in- stance he had submitted to- opininns more incor- reCt than his own ; s » d had sacrificed to the ob- ject of accommodation and temporary harmony, more thati he could justify in point of strict pub- lic duty. In faCt, be was convinced by experience, that the Cabinet neither possessed ability nor know- ledge to devise a good plan, nor temper and dis- cernment to adopt what he nnw thought necessary, unless Mr. Perceval should concur with Lord Wellesley. To Mr. Perceval's judgment or at- tainments Lord Wellesley ( under the same ex perience) cuuld not pay any deference, without injury to the public service. " With these views and sentiments, on the 16th of January, Lord Wellesley merely desiied per- mission to withdraw from the Cab ftet; not re- quiring any ihetngt in his own situation, and im- ploring no other favour than the facility of resig- nation. This plain request was notified to the Prince Regent, and to Mr. Perceval, as nearly as possible at the same moment of time; with the expression of Lord Wellesley's wish, that the pre- cise time o{ his resignation might be accommo- dated t6 the pleasure of his Royal Highness, and to the convenience of Mr. Perceval, as soon as the restrictions should expire. " The Prince Regent received this notification with many gracious expressions of regret; and Mr. Perceval, in writing, used expressions of re- gret, and also of thanks for the manner in which Lord Wellesley had signified his wish to resign. " Mr. Perceval, without any eqmmuniwtion to Lord Wellesley, instantly attempted to induce the Prince Regent to remove him before the expira- tion of the restrictions) and repeatedly urged the attempt with great earnestness; severally propos- ing Lord Moira, Lord Castlereagh, and Lord Sidmouth, or some of his party, to supersede Lord Wellesley, without an hour of delay. Mr. Perce- val never gave an) intimation to Lord Wellesley of these proceedings, nor even of his wish lor Lord Wellesley's immediate retirement. « The Prince Regent still pressing Lord Wei- lesley to retain the seals, he submitted to his Roy- al Highness's commands; declaring at the same time, his anxious desire to be liberated, as soon as his Royal Highness should establish his Go- vernment. « When it appeared, at the expiration of the restrictions, that the Prince Regent intended to continue Mr. Perceval's Government, Loid Wel- leslef again tendered the seals to his Royal High- ness with increased earnestness. On that occa- sfou, being informed that his Royal Highness was still at liberty, and was resolved to form his Cabi- net according to his Royal HigJbjics » ' s own vwws, and being commanded to_ state his opinions on the subject. Lord Wellesley declared, that in his judg- ment the Cabinet ought to be formed, first on an inrermeliary principle respecting the Roman Ca- tholic claims, equally exempt from the extremes of instant, unqualified concessions, and of per- emotory, eternal exclusion : and, secondly, on an understanding that the war should be conducted with adequate vigour. Lord. Wellesley said, that he personally was ready to serve luith Mr. Perce- i val on such a basis ; that he never again would serve under Mr. Perceval in any circumstances. He said, that he would serve under Lord Moira, or Lord Holland, on the proposed principles; but . that he desired ho office, and entertained no other wish th^ n to be instrumental in forming such an Administration for the Prince Regent, as should be consistent with his Royal Highness's honour, conciliatory towards Ireland, and equal to the conduCt of the war on a scale of sufficient extent. He made no exception to any Prime M ' ister but Mr, Perceval, whom he considered to be incom- petent to fill that office, although sufficiently qua- lified for inferior stations,. He offered to aCt un- der any other person approved by his Royal High- ness; but he stated, that his own views rendered him much m^ re'ar. xious to/ resign instantly. " The Princ? Regent commanded Lord Wei- , lesley to continue* nntil - his Royal Highness should have communicated with Mr. Perceval j through the Lord Chancellor. Lord WelJesJey j stated, that such a communication must prove j useless, but submitted to his Royal Highness's earnest desire. In two days afterwards, Lord Wellesley received, through the Lord Chancel- j lor, the Prince Regent's acceptance of his resign t- j tion, and accordingly delivered the seals to his \ Royal Highness, on the 19th of February, 1812."

BR DUBLIN., tin R O 0 BELFAST, Monday, May 25, 1812. BY EXPRESS. This morning,, a Packet, '. 7 Express, from Donaghadee, brought us the London Papers of Thursday the 21 si. We have only time to seleCt the following, which will be found to contain whatever is most worthy of notice in these prints; London, Thursday, May 21. We ( Gtiife',) pnWrhed in " a" Second Edition, last evening, that Mr. Vansittart is the newChan- celler of the Exchequer, in the room of Mr, Per- ceval ; and that on its announcement in th: House of Commons, Mr. Stuart Wortley gave, notice of a motion this day, for an Address to his Royal Highness the Prince Regent, praying that" he would be pleased to" form an efficient Adminis- tration. The new Administration stands thus : Ptrst Lord of the Treasury— the Karl of Liverpool. Chancellor of the Exchequer— Mr. Vaiisittart. Secretary » f War Department ( vice the Earl of Liverpool) Earl Bathurst or Lord Palmerston. Secretary ef Home Department ( vice Mr. Ryder)— MP. Bragge Bathurst. Mr. Manners Sutton is also to hold some high station. This arrangement is obriously a mere tempo, rary expedient,. produced by the failure of the ne- gociation with Marquis Wellesley and Mr. Can- ning. The cause of that failure we staled in sub- stance yesterday, and we this day give the corres-' j pondence of thew parties with the Earl of Liver- pool, containing the details. The proposition made to the two former, it will be seen, was precisely the same as that trade lately to Earl Grey and Lord Grenviile. They were to adopt the I'ercev: tl po- licy, and in violation of their own avowed and re- corded principles, form part of a Ministry, deter-, mined not only to refuse, but not even to consider the claims of the Catholics. Mr. Canning too, who had pronounced a verdiCl on the incapacity of Lord Castlereagh, was to accept him as his leader in the House of Commons, for such is the station assigned his Lordship ; the Marquis Wel- lesley, who had pronoujiced a similar sentence on Mr. Perceval, was to act under the Earl of Liverpool, who was only a subaltern of Mr. Perceval. We cannot, conieive how such a preposterous ; proposition could have ever been made with an expectation that it would be accepted. Mr. Stuart Wortley, who moves the Address this day to the Prince Regent, to form an efficient Administration, has been in the habit of supporting the Minister, and had consulted, we understand, several Coun- try Gentlemen on the subject of his notice.-- His motion it is thought will be carried. Mr. W. Pole has been offered the Secretary at War Department, but has declined it, preferring to retain hrs Irish situation. The Resolution for grartting A farther sum of JCIOOO a- year to the eldest son of Mr. Perceval, during the life of Mrs. Perceval, was carried last night in the House of Comrhons by a large ma- jority. The whole of the provision proposed to be made for the family therefore stands thus.:— To Mrs. Perceval for life, and, on her death, to her eldest eon for life .....;..... = 59,000 To the eldest son during the life of his mother........ 1,000 To the twelve children ol Mf. Perceval 50, tMO Making together, for their present support, an in- ! jOme of about £ 6000 a- year. u na'. ic, Union, Essex, Marchioness of Ely, Met- calfe, and Castle Eden, from the Downs. An Anholt Mail arrived this morning,, but it conveys no intelligence from the " Worth of a strik- ing nature. Another Decree has been published by the Crown Prince of Sweden for augmenting his army, but still no declaration is made as to the object in view. We are now heartily tired of the shuffling and temporizing policy of Bertla- dotte, and care not how soon he is visited wi ll all the calamities of a French yoke, which he has certainly taken no steps to avoid. Couiier- Ofpce, One oCloch. We have just been able to obtain a. copy of Lord Liverpool' 9 explanatory letter to Lord Wel- lesley. The publication by the friends of the Mar- quis Wellesley of the correspondence that pre- ceded this letter, renders it necessary to commli- nicate it to the public as soon as possible. T © THE MARQUIS WELtESLY. Fife- Hou'e, May 19, 181- 2 MY FJEAR LORD—. After the receipt of the Pa- per which you sent to me in the afternoon of yes- terday, I should certainly have felt it to be unne- cessary and fruitless fo trouble you with any far » ther correspondence, if I were not desirous to cor- rect the misapprehension into which you appear to have fallen respecting my opinions, and those of my colleagues, upon the Roman Catholic ques- tion. In the communication which passed I . tween us on Sunday, is well as that which I previously had with Mr. Canning, I certainly stated my opinions upon the Roman Catholic question to remain un- changed, and that I was not aware that those of my colleagues had undergone any change. With respeCl to myself individually, I must pro- test against its being inferred from any declaration of mine, that it is, or ever has been, my opinion, that under no circumstances it would be possible to make any alteration ill the laws respecting the . Roman Catholics. Upon the last occasion on which this subject was discussed in Parliament, I expressly sta. ed that circumstances might arise, in which, in my judgment, some alteration in those laws would be adviseable. I have always been desirous of hear- ing the specific proposition which should explain dis'inCtly, what p » rt of the existing securities it was intended to repeal— what part it was intended to preserve, and what were the new securities which it has been so o ten declared must be sub- stituted in the< place of some oft- those which are at present in force. - I ba'- e never heard any satisfactory explanation on this poinf. I will fairly own ^ hat in the present state of the opinion^. jnd feeling of the Roman Catholics. I do not believe such a project to be practicable, < consis'en'ly with the attainment of rhe avowed objects of really satisfying the Roman Catholics, and of affording an adequate security to the Es- tablished Church and Constitution. Entertaining this opinion, I have felt to be my duty to'continue to resist a Parliamentary inquiry on . that subject, which, in my judgment, could be productive; of no other effeCt than that of alarm- ing the Protestants on the one hand, and of de- luding and deceiving the Roman Catholics on the otFe-. • With respeCt to the opinions of my Cilleagues, theie are some who entirely agree with me in the view which I have taken of this question ; but I am sure it must be known to you from discussions at which you have bsen pre- ent, that there are others who have always entertained and avowed different opinions from those professed by me upon some part's of this subjeCt. You must recoiled that considerations of a very j high importance, but which might be only tem- porary in their nature, induced us all, up to a very late period, to be decidedly of opinion, that it was not proper that under such circumstances the mea- sure should. be entertained. You may be of opinion that since the month of February last these considerations have ceased to be ia force. But they are still regarded by others as not having, lost their weight. Besides the consideration to which I have referred the conduct and temper which the Roman Catholics have been induced to manifest;, the principle up- on which the question has been brought forward, the circumstances Europe at this time, gave rise to objections which are felt in a greater or less de- gree by different- persons. 1 I have thought this explanation due to my col- leagues and to myself. In one point we are all agreed, that this is not the moment at which the question ought to be en. tertained, with a view to any immediate practical consequence. I am aware, that in this sense of j our'duty, our opinions may be at variance with ; your's: but it is material that these opinions! should not be misunderstood, Or subject to the interpretation to which my silence might ren." j der them liable, if I had not returned some an- ' Swer to that part of your paper. Upon the. subjefl of the manner in which ihe j war in the Peninsula has been managed, I forbear i entering into any particulars at present ; but I think it material to observe, with respect to my i declaration, that since your sesignation it had been > found practicable to mak- j soini extension of the i military efforts in- the Peninsnla, " that this has not arisen from any means whiclTwere in exi tence at 1 the time when you were In office, and which there had been then any indisposition or objection to di reCt to that objeCt, but it has grown out of events ! which have subsequently occurred, and which liny place at the disposal of Government, means which were at that tiroe. unavoidably applied to another service. As this letter i* merely explanatory, I will ndt give you the trouble of returning any answer to it; but I am sure you will see the justice and pro. priety of considering it as a part ot the correspon- dence which has passed between us on the suhjetf to which it relates — I am, Ikc.

A'HINT.-— A very unjust system is practised by many ot the masters of vessels at our quay, in charging more for coals when purchased by the bag than by the ton. Thus, if coals be about 26\ r. per ton, they nevertheless charge 2s. per bag. This is a hardship which, as falling particularly upon the poor, calls loudly for Magisterial inter- ference; and, we are convinced, that for sikh flagrant injustice, the laws are competent to^ lr, flict heavy penalties - To facilitate redress, how- ever,' it would be very desirable that masters or coal- vessels should be compelled to affix tha'r name, See. in legib'e characters i. i a conspicuous I part of the vessel.

At length from midst the blackening stortn, A hurst of lightning rush'd ; It struck the tree's majestic form, And alt his lofty verdure crush'd: The crown that Glory bade him wear, Of living light, was quench'd in bleod, And long, with look of blank d'Spair, Shall Britain mark the station, where Her guardian stood. Yes! widowed England long shall moan Her PeRcrva L, her pride! Who living toil'd for her Almie, And in h « r cause untimely dietj. Assassin, hark ! a raving Wife 1 Tw lve Orphans raise thy death- song hi^ h; . A natism hungers for thy life, And Justice lifts her awful knife, And bids thee die. He's vanishM— and with death of shame Has feasted many an eye; He's vanishM, like the omen'd flame, That Aunties thro' the midnight sky. From realms of day his soul is borne, On shout and curie, and darkeu'd Vow ; Oh ! Mercy, spare the wretch forlorn— Tlio' he her proudest gem has torn From Britain's brow.

FROM AN AMERICAN PAPER. COTTON— A CURE FOR BURN'S. Extract of a letter from the Rev J. If. Browne, dated Troy, New- York, Dec.— Som? time since I communicated to you an ex trart from the Baltimore Medical and Philosophi- cal Lyceum, on the virtues of Cotton, in cases of scalds and burns. I was sorry to find that you had mislaid if. I think yon will do well to publish this statement of facts in the LUerty- Hall. In Baltimore I became acquainted with Dr. Na- thaniel Potter, who formerly studied under Dr. Benjamin Rush, and whose charafter stands high in the line of his profession, and is the editor of the above work. Being conversing with him one day in the street, a person came by whose hand Was wrapped in a. handkerchief; the doffor stop- ped him, and requested him to shew me his hand, and informed me what was the matter with it.— He informed that on the Monday preceding, he was boiling some rosin to make a salve for the sore back of a horse ( being a farrier) the vessel being in danper of upsetting, he caught it with his hand, and thereby scalded his fingets with the boiling rosin. He said the pain was so exquisite that he threw himself upon the ground in an agony ; but finding the rosin stuck to his fingers, he applied lard, and melted off the rosin by the same fite. He afterwards wrapped it in cotton- wool ( or raw cotton^, the anguish moderated and the fingers soon healed. On removing the handkerchief, I noticed, that there was scarcely the appearance of a scald, near the nail of the lit- tle finger was a small sore, and cotton sticking to it; but he informed me that he intended the next day ( Saturday) to lay aside the covering, as it was no longer troublesome. The dodlor referred me to the publication, as he wished the subjeft to be universally known. On examining the piece, it contained a communication from Dr. Hallam ( if my memory is corredl) to the editors, in which he { states, that a certain wo- rmian being carding cotton- wool, her child pulled a vessel of hot water then on the fire, and a quan- tity splashed over its body., The mother stripped off the clothes, and not having others near, to pre- vent the child from taking cold, wrapped it in raw cotton. The distress of the child was great for a short time, but it soon became quiet, and in an hour fell asleep. As she did not wish to dis- i turb the child, it remained in the cotton all night, and to tb. e astonishment of the mother, in the morning there was but little appearance of the scald. Another case was therein stated, of a negro child who burnt its hands with hot cinders. Cot- ton was immediately applied, and produced the same cfFeft as in the former case. The Doftor had an opportunity of a proof of his own child, who was scalded by hot water, and found the sa- lutary effefts, The same day the child with his mother, paid a visit to Havre de Grace, and next morning there was no appearance of the scald. This led the Doctor to try the efficacy of cotton in inflammatory cases, and found it relieved an inflammation in the facc. Dr. Potter states a case in his pra& ics of a boy scalded by water from the spout nf a tea kettle on his back. He applied the cotton- wool— the boy was in great distress for a short time, about twenty minures, when the anguish abated, and in an hour he fell asleep. The next morning he ex- amined the patient, and the scald was cured, save small spot, and, on inquiry, he learnt, that the coiton had slipt from that part— by ihe second dav that part was cured also. The cass making a strong irnpr.' ssion on my mind, I have endeavoured to communicate the ubjeifl in a variety of companies, and sir. ee I ' have been in this neighbourhood I have had several op- portunities of provi. ig it- Two instances in the family of the Rev. Dr. S imuel Blackford, of Lan- singburg, and one at Waterfoid, whilst I was visiting at those places. The Dodlor suggested a" n idea, that if cotton be useful in cases of burns and scalds, it might also be useful in cases of chilblains and frozen feet.— One evening last week, a neighbeur of the Doc- tot's having been at work in the snow, found his heels frozen : he happening to call at the Doftor's to visit me, complained of his heels, arid that he had tried bathing his feet in cold water, bur they werd still very painful, I advised the trial o/ cot- ton; he immediately applied some, and having sat with us about two hours, on inquiiv found the pain had ce. i& ed. I was mentioning the circum- stance to a gentleman in this town, who yesterday informed me that a gentleman of his acquaintance had applied cotton to his chilblains, and found ijreat relief. It would be well if persons would follow the example of Do< 5l<> r Blackford, who has laid a quan- tity of cotton in a certain place, known to his nu merous family, to b. e ready for application In case of accident, NEW SOUTH WALES. On Saturday, a set of New South Wales Pa pers, to the 1st December, came to hand. Governor Macquarrie and his Lady were mak- ing a tour of the Southern Settlements. They quitted Sydney on the 7th on board the Lady Nelson schooner for Van Dieman's Land, from whence they would proceed overland to Port Dal- rymple. On the Governor's return, he would ex- amine the various islands interspersed through Bass Straits. His Excellency was attended by Captain Antell, Lieutenant Maclaine, and Mr Methvcn, Afling Surveyor- General, The Admiral Gambier, with 197 male convifls, and 32 men of the 73d, arrived at Port Jackson in Oflober. It is supposed th rt the Pearl Fishery is situated to the eastward of Otaheite. The pearl oyster shells are worth, in this fcountry, about ael40 per ton, and in China they bring 20 dollats a pickle ( 133 lbs.) The natives dive for them, and gene, rally obuin five tons daily. Captain Campbell who discovered this fishery, formerly command- ed the Harrington brig, which traded to- the East Indies, and was taken possession of by some con- viils, and cariied out of Port Jackson. By this seizure he sustained a loss of ; tf- 1000. We men- tion the circumstance to shew how necessary it is to have a small naval force at Port Jackson, as we understand when the Zealander sailed, similar attempts were daily eipefted. HUME'S ACCOUNT OF THE ASSASSINATION' OF THE DUKE OF BUCK- INGHAM. " There was one Fel: on, of good family, but of an ardent melanch ly temper, who had served under the Duke in the station of Lieutenant. His Cap'^ in being killed in the retreat at tlse Isle of Rb » , Felton had applied for the company ; and when disappointed, he threw up his comrnissTon, and retired in discontent from the army. While private resentment was boiling in his su'len, un- sociable mind, he heard the nation resound with complaints against the Duke : and he met •• ith the remonstrance of the Commons, in which his enemy was represented as the cause of every na- tional grievance, and ns the gr- at enemy of the public. Religions fanaticism further inflamed these vindiftive reflections; and he fancied, tha* he should do heaven acceptable service, if, at one blow, he dispatched this dangerous foe to religion and to his country. Full of these dark views, he secretly arrived at Portsmouth, at the same time with the Duke, and watched for an opportunity of effefling his bloody purpose. " Buckingham had been entrag- d in conversa- tion with Soubize and other French Gentlemen, and a difference of sentiment having arisen, the dispute, though conduced with temper and de- cency, had produced some of those gesticulations and lively exertions of voice, in which that na- tion, more than the English, are apt to indulge themselves. The conversation being finished, the Duke drew towards the door, and in the passage, turning himself to speak to Sir Thomas Fryar, a Colonel in the army, he was, on the sudden, over Sir Thomas's shoulder, struck upon the breast with a knife. Without uttering other words than the villain has killed me, in the same moment, pull- ing out, the knife, he breathed his last. " No man had seen the blow, nor the person who gave it; but in the confusion, every one made his own conjeflure ; and all agreed that the mur- der had been committed by the French gentlemen, whose angry tone of voice had been heard, while their words had not been understood by the bye- stanJers. In the hurry of revenge, they had in- stantly been put to death, had they not been saved by some of more tamper and judgment,/ who, though they had the same opinion of their guilt, thought proper to rescue them for a judicial trial and examination. " Near the door there was found a hat, con- taining four or five lines of the remonstrance of the Commons, which declared Buckingham an enemy to the kingdom : and, under these lines, was a short ejaculation, or attempt towards a prayer. It was easily concluded that this hat be- Ionged to the assassin; bur the difficulty still re- mained, who that person should be ? For the writing discovered not the name ; and whoever he was, it was natural to believe, that he had already fled far enough not to be found without a hat. " Ir. this hurry, a man, without a hat, was seen walking very composed before the door. One crying out, ' Here is the fellow who killed the Duke,' every body ran to ask, which is he ? The man very sedately answered, I am he. The more furi- ous immediately run upon him with drawn swords; others more deliberate, defended and protected him : He himself, with open arms, calmly and cheerfully exposed his breast to the swords of the most enraged i being willing to fall a sudden sa- crifice to their anger, rather than be reserved for public justice, which he knew must be executed upon him." The attempt to assasinate Mr- Harley, Prime Minister to Queen Anne, is thus recorded —'• On the 8th of March, 1711, the Abbot de la Bour- lie, commonly called the Marquis of Guiscard, a General in the French service, being under ex- amination before the Committee of Council, at the Cockpit, on a charge of High Treason, for cor- responding with France, stabbed Mr. Harley, one of the Council, with a pen knife ; but the knife lighting upon a rib, snapped in two. Here- upon all the committee drew their swords and wounded Guiscard in several places of his body, who being committed to Newgate, died there the 17th of that - month. The assassin had be - n employed in the English service several ye rs, and at that time had a handsome pension allow- ed him from the Crown," IMPORTANT NATIONAL DISCOVERY. We are glad to learn that Joseph Lancaster, during the last week, submitted to the Dukes of Kent and Sussex, the Duke of Bedford, and Lord Somerville, his discovery of a principle applicable to agriculture, existing in the order of nature, and confirmed by example daily- nnder the eye of man. The effefl of the discovery will be to enable every person, wha reduces the piinciple to praflice, to increase the crops of his land from the proportion of one- twentieth to one- half, according to the de- gree in the scale of experiment. It will be com municated to the public, and from it every person may determine far himself the extent tor which be will try it on his own land. The chief expense of carrying it into effedl being to invest more ca- pital in the industry of agriculture, which, at the same time, will beneficially employ a great num- ber of destitute poor.— We are assured that the principle is true and perspicuous, and will be brought forward and made clear by fafls, equal to occular demonstration. The Dukes of Kent and Sussex, and the Duke of Bedford, and Lord Somerville, have engaged to attend a leffure at the Freemasons' Tavern, which will be given ear- ly in the next month, when Joseph Lancaster will publicly explain the astonishing principle, on which the important discovery and improvement may be realized. The particulars will be duly advertised—( Statesman.) We are sorry to state the death of Captain the Honourable John Gore, commanding the Scorpion sloop, on the coast of Africa ; a seaman having, by accident fallen overboard, he leaped after him with the intent to save the man's life, in which attempt he was drowned j the sloop's boats were lowered for hint; the first swamped, the second he seized the gunwhale, and in his exertions to get in, cap. sized it with the hands in her, and sunk not to rise again : the hands were picked up with great exer- tions by lowering the cutter. Captain Gore had twice before saved men from drowning by his ex- pert swimming. ARABIAN HORSES. M. Chateaubriand, in his Travels in Greece, gives thf f blowing account of the manner in which the Arabian Horses are trained to hardihood :— Thev are never put under shelter, bat left exposed to the most intense heat of the son. tied by all four legs to stakes driven in the ground, so that they cann'- at stir. The saddle is t* ken from their bacjcs; they frequently drink but once, and have only one feed of barley in twenty four hours.— This rigid treatment, so far fsom wearing them out, gives them sobriety, patience, and speed.-— I have often admired an Arabian steed thus tied down to the burning sand, his hair loosely flowing,' i his head bowed between his lees, to find a little shade; and stealing with his wild eye a look at his mas'er, rele- ise his legs from the shackles, cpnng upon his back, and he will paw in the - valley, he will rejoice in his strength, he wilt swallow the ground in the fierceness of his rage ; and you re- cognise the original piflure delineated by Job.—• Eighty or a hundred piastres are given for an or. dinary horse, which is in general less valued than an ass or mule ; but a horse of a well known Ara- bian breed will fetch any price. Abdallah, Pacha of Damascus, had just given 3,000 piastres for one. This history of a horse is frequently the to- pic of conversation. When I was at Jerusalem, the feats of one of those wonderful steeds made a greiit noise. The Bedouin to whom the animal, a mare, belonged, being pursued by the Gover- nor's guards, rushed with her from the tops of the i mountains which overlooked Jericho. The mare scoured at full gallop down an alm ist perpendicu- lar declivity without stumbling, and left the sol- diers lost in admiration and astonishment. The poor creature, however, dropped down dead on ctering Jericho, and the Bedouin, vvfao would not quit her, was taken, weeping over> he body of his companion.— This mare has a brother, in the de- sert, who is so famous, that the Arabs always know where he has been, where he is, whit he is doing, and how he does. Ali Aga religiously shewed me, in th? mountains near Jericho, the footsteps of the mare that died in the attempt to save her master. A Macedonian could nqt have beheld diose of Bucephalus with greater respect. MISCELLANEOUS. It will be recollefled by many, that some years ago, a poor clergyman, of the name of Parslow, died in the very a « S of preaching a charity sermon in Welbeck Chapel. This seemingly unfortunate man left a widow and 11 children behind him to bewail his loss. The Bishop of Chichester, to whom Mr. Parslow was well- known, iinmedi itely cnmmenced a private subscription for his family. The result was, the payment of the deceased's debts, amounting to upwards of 300/. and the placing In the hands of trustees, for the benefit of the widow and children-, 60001. stock ; but this was net all, most of the children were also placed in more or less advantageous situations; one be- ing equipped as a writer, and sent to India; another to the Charter- house ; and another, a lad of 17, was placed as a cleik in the Navy- office It is not two months since the late Mr. Perceval gave to this last the appointment of naval officer of Batbadoes, the emoluments of which are esti- mated at neatly 2000/. per annum. Some years ago, Mr. Perceval named the son of another clergyman to an office, the late salary of which amounted to 6001. per annum; and this, merely from being assured by persons upon whose word he could rely, that he was a young man of stridl integrity and principle, and every way qualified for the situation.. Upon both these occasions Mr. Perceval recift^ ji^ ie strongest solicitations from persons high in ofh'ee to grant the places to their dependants. 8dch was the man that the monster Bellingham, the self- redresser of imaginary wrongs, thought fit, most deliberately, and no less inhu- manly, to assassinate. On Tuesday se'nnight, as Henry Garnett, sen. Esq. of Ardearn, Co. Meath, was coming out of his gate at seven o'clock in the morning, he was stopped by a foot- pad of the name of Car, who presented a pistol at Mr. G. and though a very old gentleman and unarmed, he resisted the ruf- fian so forcibly that the fellow fired a pistol at him, and we are happy to say, without doing any other mischief to Mr. Garnett than that of mere- ly burning his face ; the coachman whipped the horses so violently that they at last outstripped the robber, and escaped into Duleek; where the police and yeomanry corps, commanded by Capt, Gustavus Hamilton, of Mount Hanover, a Ma- gistrate of said county, all joined immediately in pursuit. The fellow was armed with a case of pistols, and was well supplied with ammunition, which were luckily rendered useless by his swim- ming the river Banny; while he was in the act of swimming the river, the pursuing party first got sight of him, when they fired at and missed him ; and on his getting to the opposite bank he stripped oif his wet clothes, and ran naked through the country. Mr. Ljtngan, of Riverstown, arm- ed with a blunderbuss, closed on the tVllow and fired at him, but missed him ; the fellow had, on crossing the river, found a dung fork, with which he completely disabled a very valuable mare belonging to Mr. Langan. After a most fatiguing pursuit of 1,5 miles through a very close country, he at last took refuge in the village of Stamullen ; where, after a search of several hours, he was al last discovered on a loft by Captain Hamilton, who immediately grappled the fellow, and by the assistance of a policeman, after a most violent resistance, he was at last secured. What j materially assisted the fellow in his pursuit was his being naked, for he slipped away repeatedly, j as no grip cpuld be taken : he was sent tied, and naked as he was to Duleek, where Mr. G. iden- tified him, and we are happy to hear, that he was immediately sent under a strong escort of Captain Hamilton's Duleek yeomen to Trim. He was assisted in secreting himself by the people of the country through which he passed. He is one of those misguided wretches who stile themselves Carders, and aa uncommon able fellow. Some time ago, a Roman coin was found wedd- ed between the teeth of a human skeleton, dop up at Aldborough, in Yoi kshire. It has been since ascertained, that the coin was an Obolus, to pay Old Charon for ferrying the deceased over the river Styx. The coffin, which enclosed the corpse of the late lamented Chancellor of the Exchequer was very superb. The inscription was as fol nws : Right Hon. SPENCER PERCEVAL, Chancellor of th » Exchequer, Firs- Lord of the Treasury, Prime Minister of England, Fell by the Hand of an ASS ASSIN, in the Commons Hon'e of Parliament, May 11, A D 1812, in the 50th yijar of his age; born Nov. 1, A. D 1762- W* were sorry to observe a disposition to riot manifested yesterday by some of our fellow- citi- zens. It seems some evil- disposed persons circu- lated a report that there were som • potatoes lodg- ed in a store belonging to Mr. Callaghan— in cot - sequence of which misrepresentation a consider- able number of persons proceeded to break open the doors, when Dan. C- tllaghan, jun. Esq. arriv- ed and offered to open the whole stores for ttieir inspection ; in the mean time the Mayor arrivec1, with a party of cavalry, and tranquillity was im- mediately restored. Some few of the country people remained gazing nt the extraordinary dress and the appearances of the German soldiers, and when the lat'er returned to their barracks, the crowd immediately dispersed. We feel con. vinced we shall not again have occasion to notice such a violation of order, ns it must appear obvi. ous that such disturbances must, if they should be repeated, prove injurious to the supply of the market— we were certainly much surprised, that such an unwarrantable attack should be made on the property of a man who has contributed so largely to the promotion of trade, and the conse- quent occupation of the poor in this city Cork Pup- r. The prevailing fashion with the ladies of Paris is the zebra stripe. They wear • fcebra- striped gowns, zebra- striped ribbands in their hats, and zebta- striped shoes, and if this hinnour lasts, the Pari- sian elegantes will soon be zebraed from top to toe. The zebra stripe is a broad zigzag of three co- lours, as for example, amaranth, deep blue and light blue, deep blue, sky blue, and white, & c. Silk capotes, especially of that sort of silk called Gros de Naples, have lately been much worn. An industrious man, whose family resides in Glasgow, having undertaken a piece of work at Port Glasgow, was returning from that place last Saturday ever-' ng, with others he had taken along with him to the work. When they were near their houses, in the prosped of visiting their fa- milies, and supplying their wants, ilfcd when he was about to divide the- contents of his pocket- book, amounting to ]( i guinea notes, their com- mon property, amongst his companions, he found he had lost it.— The anguish of the poor man's mind may be easily conceived, his circumstances not being able to support the loss. It, however, was found upou the road near Renfew, by Joh* Fleming, ploughman to Mr. Burns there, who, on hearing the loss published at the church door there on Sunday, immediately came forward to the crier, and told him the book was safe, and,' with much honour to himself, frankly returned it without requiting any reward,' although he has a numerous small family. Such an instance of no- ble disinterested honesty caonot be toy much known. A most lamentably accident happened last week in a coal mine at Orrelij near UpholLmd, in the neigh- bourhood of Liverpool. Notice had been given to the workmen belonging to the pit, that a certain par- ticular level was supposed to be filled with inflamma- ble gas, and they were of course directed not to ap, proach the place with a light or any other substance capable of communicating fire. Notwithstanding this warning, one of the men, who had left his tool* m the forbidden place, had the rashness to attcnvj. e to recover them, and actually entered it with a candle. A tremendous explosion instantly took place, in con- sequence of - which every person in that part of the mine was immediately suffocated. We are concern- ed to say, that nine men and one woman fell a sacri- fice to this thoughtless temerity, who were all taken out, dead, after the proper precautions had been used. The men all belonged to the Leyland and Oimskiik local militia, and were most of them very stout and able young men. The explosion w > s so violent, thai it shook the windows of the houses of one of the oeighbouiing villages. BELFAST >. i. Oatmeal si « .
