ALEXR. MILLER DOWN, June 9. ( 397 PRINCE REOENT's'SECKBTAKY. Lord CASTLEREAGH rose to observe, that as the not: ce of a motion on this appointment stood for an early day, he thouc; iH it right to acquaint the House, that the Prinie Regent had been s^ ra ciously pleased to direCl that tha salary of C > 1 > nel M'Mahon should be paid out of the Privv Purie ( Hear*, hear). The Hon. Gentleman wh > had given the notice would, therefore, probably think his motion unnecessary. Mr. PONSONBY, in the absence of his H* n. Friend ( Mr. Hornet) dould have little hesita- tion in saying that the notice would of course be dropped. RECENT POLITICAL NECOC ATtOHt. Mr. SHERIDAN rose to give notice of its be- ing his intention, on Wednesday tiext, to submit a motion to the House, in consequence of what had been said during the debate of the other flight. Thei was no person who felt more deeply than himself the importance of public opinion; it was not surprising, tlieref ire, that he should feel an- xious to pro'eCf his own charaCW in the public estimation : and on this account he no*- took the earliest opportunity he could, of giving a notice -> n the suHjefl. H » would, on Wednesday next, bring forward a motion for further and more ample info'ma'ion on the la*: e negoci. Mons for a change of Minister?. He flattered himself tha' the Chancellor of the Exchequer would allow him the precedence of that day, as he had only to make a brief statement of the faCts, as : hey related to himself, which could lead to no lengthened dis- cussion, and, slue he was, would admit of no coi- tradiftion. After having made that statement to the House, he believed that there was not any living; being in the shape or character of a Gentle, man, who would continue to thr'tw out any re- fleClions on his honour and charaCler. The Earl of YARMOUTH expressed a wish to ofbr a few observations. He trusted that he should not be considered as infringing upon the usages of Parliament if he endeavoured to re- state what he had offered to the House on the evening alluded to. On ' hat evening he certainly fancied, when he made the statement, that he saw the Right H'^ n. Gentleman in his place. Under- wnding that he was mistaken, he would, if the House pleased, re- state to him what he had then stated ( Goon, goon.) The Nohle Lord then observed, that he considered himself as one of the w' ole public," and as an individual mem. ber of that, public he was justified in guarding himself against any mis- ttateme.-. t and misconcep- tion, and would re- state what he then said.—'( G » on, go on J He would therefore begin with ex- pressing his gratitude first to the House for their indulgence in listening to what he was about to re- state, promising, that in that re- statement he would mit use any surplusage j and secondly, that he would not offend the constitutional jealousy of the Rigfet Hon. Gentleman. On that night he had stated, and he regretted that what he then said had not been heard by all, that it was the intention on the part of a great portion of the Household, to resign their situations in the event of certain persons coming into the Administration. On that occasion he had stated, not that they would wait to be turned out, but that they were determined to resign, not if a ehange of measures was to take place, but that if a change of men merely was to be the result of the negociations. The persons so determined were the three Great Officers of the Household, and that determination was come to individually, within twenty- four hours, without the one stating to the other his determination; he also stated that it was deter- mined that a commurtlcation to the effeCt stated should be made to the great Political Chiefs He had farther stated, that the determination on the part of all wa$ firm ; that there was not a con- trariety of opinions on the subjeCt; that the mat- ter being made known to the Right Honourable Gentleman, he ( Mr Sheridan) came to the No- ble Lord to a place where they usually met, and said ", I hear you are all going to resign. Do not take such a step. Let me advise you as an old friend to reconsider your determination, and we'll talk about it another time." The opinion of the Right Hon. Gentleman having some weight with the Noble Lord, he did consent to reconsider the matter, and the next day was Sied for farther conversation; the Right Honourable Gentleman came to the place appointed, but from some mis- take either in the hour of appointment, or from some other cause, he ( Lord Yarmouth) was gone out, and did not meet the Right Hon. Gentleman, but subsequently— Mr. SHERIDAN here rose to order; observ- ing that it was not his wish to stop any explana- tion, but when he had given notice for Wednes. day, every person might then give an opinon on his conduct, and the conduct of the individuals concerned; he thought premature discussion would be irregular. He trusted to the honour of the Noble Lord to abstain from the discussion at present. At the same time, should it be the pleasure of the House to listen to the Noble Lord, he hoped they would also indulge him with per- mission to reply, and if that permission was grant- ed to him, no doubt that every Gentleman pre- sent would claim a similar indulgence.—( Hear, hear.) The Earl of YARMOUTH had no wish to proceed— he would wait for the opportunity on Wednesday of explaining what he had said, and then he was satisfied there could be no possible difference of opinion as to what had really passed. Here the conversation closed. The House then went into a Committee of Supply, and the Annual Estimates of the Ex- aordinaries of the Army were referred to the committee. HOUSE OF COMMON' ' UF. SIJAY, JUNE U. Mr. BROUGH \"" t sit 1, the rose to bring be. fore the H mse a proposition on a subject which had already occupied much of the time of the House, and which he w. is convinced, was the mist import tnt the House could it present at- tend to ; and to call on Gentlemen to perfirTi their duty to the country, by declaring the npi. nion, and giving their advice to the Cnvvn on the subject. Notwithstanding; the mass of evidence which had been presented to the House, he was convinced there never was a s ihject which laid in a narrower compass, or in which the truth laid nearer the surface than in the present. His task, therefore, would be short,; but there was one object painful, indeed, in the extreme ; hut, pain- ful as ir vf t-, to it he must advert, and that was the pat.' iful pictures of want and ruin which had been detailed in evidence. Evidence given by persons who, after having, by a life of industry, +> y which they had realised an opulent fortune, now found themselves stript by degrees of that fortune, and prevented from assisting, as they had been used to do, their laborious fellow- sub- jects, except, indeed, by hastening their own ruin by the operation, as they all agreed in saying, of the Orders in Council— those Orders in Coun- cil which, four years ago, were passed by those who pretended to be their friends, though even then against their Opinion, for their preservation. They n » w, however, after four years of trial, came to the House asking to be relieved from the cares of these their pretended friends ;, and surely it was something that Yorkshire, Lancashire, and Warwickshire, had united, and, as with one voice, come to the bar of the House, and entreated for the repeal of those now tried Orders in Council. — The Hon. Gentleman then adverted to the va- rious petitions which had been presented to the House praying r lief, many of which, he acknow- ledged, were extravagant, and even ludicrous. Amongst other objects » f petitioning, had been that of throwing open the trade to India. And amongst the petitions intended to be presented to the House, he had seen one from a set of persons praying to be allowed to export black cattl'e to the East ;> another frorfl the potteries of Stafford- shire, praying to be allowed to send their manu- factures to China ; and another from the town of Newcastle upon- Tyne, praying permission to ex- port coals to supply the hot- houses at Calcutta. These, indeed, were ludicrous to read, but me- lancholy, indeed, to reflect on ; since they proved the height of the distress which existed, great enough to make men lose sight of reason and jood sense in put suit of relief. The Hon. Mem- > er then proceeded to tak; a review of the state of the hardware manufacturing districts, particu- larly of Birmingham, which town, he said, and the districts for thirteen miles round, which for- merly employed near 400,000 workmen, were now reduced to distress— half the workmen quite out of employ— and the remaining half finding it for only half their time, and working then for lit- tle more than half the usual wages ; and the mas- ters declaring, that, unless some change took place, the/ should no longer be able to employ even that number at that rate. In a conversa- tion which he had had the honour of holding With that distinguished character ( the late Mr. Perceval), that great man said, " True, you have made out your case, as far as relates to the hard- ware districts ; but you will make out nothing to effect the woollen districts." Had such been the case, he would ask ? did it not appear, that the distress in Yorkshire was even greater than in Birmingham i He then recapitulated that part of the evidence relating to Yorkshire, to prove that faCt. He had stated the evidence— the House had heard it—. but it was impossible for him to state it in the af- feCling manner in which it had been given. To conceive that, Gentlemen must have heard the witnesses give their evidence at the Bar; some had said, to those who stated these hardships, " Do you impute the scarcity to the Orders in Coun- cil ?"_'' No, he did not; but there were two sorts of scarcity—- one produced by its being im- possible to get food by any means— and the other produced by not having the means of getting it. They did not impute the scarcity of born to the Orders in Council, but they did impute the scar- city of wages to that source; and that was what aggravated the scarcity to the lower classes. It had been put to ail the witnesses, whether they recolleCled the situation of the poor in former years of scarcity, and whether it was then as bad as it was at present ?— The answer uniformly was no; not half so bad. And here he could not help adverting to the late measures pursued to- wards America, which, he said, by preventing our army in the Peninsula being supplied from that country, tended to increase the scarcity, and to enhance the price of provisions in this ciuntry. In answer to all this evidence, only one person, whose name he would not mention, had been called, and he alone had said, that the people did not feel distress! Tnis man, who was, he was sorry to say, one of the most opulent merchants of the city of London— who had himself risen from an humble origin— had said, that the manufacturers were paid wages beyond their deserts ; that one- third their present wages would be equal to their wants; and this man had dared to say, in the face of the Repr sentatives of the People of England, that oatmeal and water was food equal to the want* of an Englishman, and that if they had more, they became pampered. Hiving no evi- dence to answer this case, the Hon. and Right Hon. Gentlemen opposite had reverted to the old stale trick of calling Mr. Ir » ine, to produce Custom house documen s, to prove the flourish- ing state of th. country $ but when he could oro. dtice better evidence— evidence which proved that these official documents were fallacious— he could no longer give credit ta them. The Hon. Mem- ber then went through a review of the Custom- house accounts, fron which he made it appear* that there had been, since the existence of the Orders in Conncil. a very great falling off in the ' rade of the country ; in one y. Mr in particular, namely, 180£ i as compared with 1811 ; the for- mer veir's t » * norfs exceeded tha- f the latter by near 27,000 000/.; and in one year the defiiit had been no less than 35.000,000/. ; and by no means could the present pressure on OU" manu- fadurers be removed, except by doing away the Orders in Council; and thus opening toonrselves the North American marker. L had been said, wh v did the mannfilurers trv the home ma kets rhe fart was, that ' he home market itself was in- jured by the? suspension of our trade with Ameri- ca ; this was proved by the evidence from Shef- field. Cut'erv, which was generally a luxury, was the staole commodity of Sheffield; and, from the evidence, it appeared not only had the supply sent to America been returned upon thtffr hands, but it appeared that so affeded were the circumstances of other commercial pl aces at home, by this state of cowwnerce, that the homeconsump* tion was very much affe51- d by it. On." circum- stance of relief afforded by home consumption* had indeed occurred in the course of the evidence, and that was, a tide of prosperity which flawed in upen Leeds about a year and a half ago, from the circumstance of the ladies adopting the fa- shion of wearing cloth pelisses instead of silk ; this indeed did afford that place a relief beyond what any person could conceive} but how wa* that relief obtained ? why, as it appeared by a subsequent oart of the evidence, by the ruin of the Spital Fields Weavers. It now remained for him to avert to what had been said on the sub- eCt of our maritime rights, and that the conces- sion of tile Orders in Council would be the aban » donment of those rights. He could only say, that if such appeared to him to be the case, he would be the last man to advise such a neasure ; on the contrary, he was of opinion the reverse was the fafli; anathat or commerce and our rightl would go hand in hand. It was said, that if we now abandoned our maritime rights, we never could resume them. Was this the fad? had they not all, at different times, in different Treaties, been given up for a time, and again resumed ? As well might it be said, if he had a right of way, that he must continue without ceasing, without eating, drinking, or sleeping, going to church, or going to Court, to walk on that way, since, if he once abandoned if, and stepped aside only for an in- § tant, he could not, having relinquished it, ever resume it. He was ready to contend for our right of blockade— our right of search— which, in feed he considered as the most important and valua- ble of all our rights ; but he conld not allow that they might not for a time be relinquished, when, to persevere in them, would lead the nation to the edge of a precipice, and plunge it into destruction. The Orders in Council lost us the American market— a market producing 13 millions annual- • ly, and was acknowledged to be one of the best markets in existence— a tried one— not a theore- tical on#, like that pointed out by the Board of Trade— a market always increasing— a market where the buyers were ready, and preferred pay- ing ready money, for the sake of the discount— a market consisting of eight millions of persons, all consumers of our manufactures, and which, in the way they were now going on, would be double in less than 30 years. All this commerce we were now sacrificing for a paltry uncertain oSiel.— Thus were we making for our enemy, France, riches, power, and a nursery for her navy— sacri- ficing piosperity, because it could be attained with ease, and persevering in a mean, paltry, pre- carious, uncertain system, because it was attended with difficulty and danger. The country was now arrived at that crisis when we could by one grand artd vigorous effort terminate the war in the Pe- ninsula ; but let not a war with America be add- ed to that. Our character for courage and sue. cess was no^ r so high, that we could yield some, thing to America, without lessening our charac- ter. We were now covered with glory, as a mi- litary, as well as a naval nation ; and let us use that glory with moderation, and to our advan- tage. Let us use our hi « jh charain doing arts to conciliate America. He was astonished to hear any one talk of jealousy towards - Vmeriea—- a country which, in a hos ile point of view, wis per- feflly harmless. He might as soon be jealous of one of his clients. Let us give up then to \ me » rica, and endetvour to attach her to us by genero- sity and friendship. N The Hon. Gentleman concluded with moving, That an humble Address be presented to the Prince Regent, representing to his Rryal High- ness, that this House has been for some time en- gaged in an lnqniry into the distressed state of the trade and manufactures of > he country, and into the efforts of the Orders in Council; assuring his Royal Highness, that this House will never cease to support him in asserting those maritime rights which have contributed to the power and prospe- rity" of these realms t hut at the same time be- seeching bis Royal Highnoss to be graciously pleased to reeal or suspend the Orders in C luucilj and adopt such measures as may s° rve to conci- liate Neutral Powers, without sacrificing the just rights or the dignity of his Majesty's Crown. Mr. ROSE began by observing, that from the manner in which the Hon. Gentleman had given his notice, it was impossible to have foreseen he meant to bring forward such a motion as the pre. sent } and he was confident many Gentlemen who , wete aVent, would be now in their places had they known of the motion. For his own part, he must say, he was not sufficiently prepared for the di- cusiion of the question: and he was sure that many other Gentlemen had not had time to make themselves sufficiently acquainted with the e"- dence.

Gentleman had said eoncerninjr the Stresses of the labouring j trs< Je) by throwinR w|, 0' wf. re form , r\ y employed for manufacturers, be was ready to subscribe ; and no ' j foreign markets into a competition in the home market.— » , i, , * j r_„ .1 ,: » „ A » ; nn i „ r .1 man could feel more ' han he did for th » ir situation, ij He was jure that no man who knew him would be- lieve he was indifferent ro iheir distresses. As to the Orders in Council, they originally had no com- mercial objefts in vjew. They were issired merely for Retaliation against the unjust and violent decrees of the enemy. The Hon. Gentleman said, no wit- nesses were brought forward to contradict the wit- flesses at the bar. Very true : andthe reason was, that the labourers in manufaflories had so strong « prejudice on this subjeft, that no evidence would remove from their minds the idea that the Orders in Council had been the cause of their distresses. As to the assertion of the Hon. Gentleman, that false entries had been collusively made at the Cus- tom- house, for the purpose of increasing the nomii nal value of our exports, he could assert that no juch thing was done. The report originated in the circumstance of a man having entered his goods at a less amount than they really were, and when ti e thing was found out, he was called upon to amend his entry. The loss of the trade to America was not so great as the Hon. Gentle- man stated. On a fair average, it would be found to be no more than 10 or 11 millions. And the que< tton was, whether the proposed remedy to j| get hack ( his trade would not be purchasing it ^ t too dear a rate. Great quantities of goods had been sent from this country to the ports cf South America, where they were not wanted. The Orders in Council were not issued against Ameri- ca, but against the common enemy ; and the cir- cumstances of our having gained great- successes in the Peninsula, was no reason why we should give th m up. This argument wight be a good Ot. e if we were at war with America, but would give incalculable advantages to the enemy. He was afraid, that gentlemen to whom he was ad- dressing himself were not fully acquainted with the fafts detailed in the evidence. He should, theref re, trespass some time on the House, by going over sever?! passages in the evidence.-— He ' could assure rhe House, that he had no par- ticular interest in defending the Orders in Coun. C'l. He was not the author of them, nor was he likely to continue long in. the situation he then he'd, and from which he was t tiled upon to ad- dress tie House upon subjects of this nature.— He believed, in his conscience, that if the Orders ir, Council were repealed . to- morrow, that event would not effetlually relieve the distresses of the manufacturers. S me of the labourers might find immediate employment, but that employment would not continue. Here the Right Hon. Gen. tlem ir. went over sc- veral passages in the printed i) evidence, in order to shew that the Americans could get many articles of manbfaftu e on the Continent, such as linens, iron- ware, & c. much cheaper than they could from us; and he pro- duced a paper published in 1806, which stated, that in consequence of the cheap price paid for labour on the Continent, compared to the labour in England, the people on the Continent could Undersell us in all the articles of iron- ware.— He ssould therefore put it to the House whether the repeal of the Orders in Council, while the French Decrees remained in Force, would not be giving encouragement to the manufacturers of Germany- and France to the injury of our own. — No doubt there had been, a great reduction of wages . in the, manufacturing districts; but no ' conclusion as to the future price of- our articles conld be drawn from this. He declared he should be ready most cordially to support any measure that might tendto jelieve the distressed manufacturers; but he did not seehow it was pos- sible that the measure now recommended could do so. The whole of the evidence went to prove, that the Americans could undersell us in the south American markets in most of our manufactures, tvhicli they could procure on the Continent of Europe, if the Orders in Council were repealed ; and how, therefore, could such repeal relieve us ? If the French Decrees remain in force, he con- tended that the Americans could supply France with every article which it was rut of our power now to obtain. America would supp'y France with raw materials in an abundance, on which she now had to pay from 60 to 70 per cent. Mr. R. next came to that part of the evidence which re- lated. to the town of Liverpool, in order to shew that that town was not in the distressed state that it had been asserted. He quoted the statement of one person, who said that several ships were at this time building there. He also read over other i| evidence, which stated that the Mediterranean trade was flourishing very rapidly, and was car- ried on in British shipping. The South Ameri- can trade, it likewise appeared, was increasing, in consequence of the Ordeisin Council. As to the shipping interest, he contended that the Ame- ricans would, to- morrow, take away one third of " the carryirg trade, now carried on in British ships, if the Orders in Council were repealed, and the French Decrees in force. And he would put k to the H use whether a maritime coimtry, that depended for her existence on a navy, ought to • - „„„ nf « nrh an advantage. The Most of those witnesses had some 30, SO, 40; 50, nay, even =£ 100; 000 worth of stock lving hy them. They had dis- charged half their hands, and they told the Hou^ e tliot they only waited for the termination of this discussion, whether they were to give full employment to all their hands,. or discharge the remainder for want of work. The American trade had every thing to recommend it; it was a safe trade, of good payments, and was always in- creasing. Besides, it furnished us abundantly with articles J of food, if we wanted them. The invariable answer of all | thf witnesses was, that th* y were not afraid of the rivalry j of anv country in the world, if they had only. a free tr id*. i Another very material circumstance for the House- to coosi- ! der was, the rising manufactures of America, to which re- | sobrce we had driven her; and he here read a letter from j the agent of a Manchester house;, stating, that if the Non- ; intercourse A61: continued three years, Manchester goods need not appear in America. He could aMure the House, that there was no other point in dispute on the parr, of the Americans with 11s except these Orders in Council, and that if they were Repealed, the Non- intercourse Act. It ap- peared that we were'gaasping at the shadow and loosing the substance— that we were losing a great deal to secure a little. Lord CASTI. ERKAGH regretted that so very short a time had been allowed by the Hon. and Learned G- ntl,- nv< n ( Brougham) for the consideration of this most, important question. He deprecaVd the discussion of a subject, involv ing not only th; trading interest, hut also the maritime rights of this country, pending a very delicate rtegociaricHi. He admitted that a strong case of distress barf been rmtde out; iuit he begged the House oot to consider that the whole commerce of this great empire . was on that atcount lost. America had not a> ted a friendly part towards us — - We had only adopted . those measurvs in retaliation for rh destructive commercial hostilities of France towards us — His Majesty's Government' were, however, prepared to make an effort to remove, - or at least, mitigate', the distrtSs of the country as far as possible,, by proposing to America, that if she would . suspend... her Nm- lntercours Act, we would suspend our. Oordeirs in Council for a time; but as the Address propo'ed by the TTtm. Memb. r would interfere wirh the Executive Government in the nef; o'ciatidns at pre- sent pending, he could not agree ro it; and. in^ rdet to get rid of it, should propose, as an Amendment, that the Order of the Day be now read.

An awfnl phfoomen'on happened at B trbados ( in the Jst of . May. The whole island was in tr- ter darkness from Half- past five in the morning till after mid- day— is dark as the most stormy night'; there was a vast deal of lightning; and an immense quantity of volcanic matter ( elfin torrents, iTfee rain and particles finer than sand, jvhich ^ covered the whole- island. There is some, reason to fear that, an earthquake, or volcanic eruption, had taken place in some of flie neigh- bouring islands. A total darkness also took place, same day, at Dominica., which continued till three in the afternoon. - A vessel which arrived at Bar- bados on the 21, was on'the preceeding tnornipg, ' 30 miles East of Martinique, completely, envelop- ed in clouds of the volcanic matter; the people on board had previously heard a dreadful explo- sion, Part of the sand has been brought to Gree- nock and is of a substance eqnal to the finest pul- verised Sand, and nearly as soft as flour. try, inasmuch as there wou'dbe a necessity to send to Ame tica, to ascertain. how far the' Aifrierif. au Government would j acrvyde. to. the. proposal of . suspending the Orders in Council; and our workmen would, in the mean, time,; Up discharged, andjiy the extreme of want apl dmr <, reduced to dispair.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer brought for- j ward the budget last night, and when we consi- der that the sum of not much less than two mil- lions was to be raised, it is impossible to contend that it'could have been rai- ed in a more unobjec- tionable manner. Mr. Huskisson very candidly allowed that a betrer selection of objects of taxa- tion could not well have been made, and not a single Member of the Opposition rose to make any objection to the Budget.— The new English taxes consist of A discontinuance of the Bounty upon Printed Goods ex- ported ; Doubling the Duty on Hides a'nd'Skir. s ; Doubling the Duty or.

N'E> ON GAZETTE E TK- URSDAV, JUNE 18. WAR DEPARTMENT, DOWNING- STRF. ET, JUNE 11 : Major Currie, Aide- de- Camp. to lieutenant- I General Sir Rowland. Hill, arrived this evening j at Lord Bathurst's office w ith a dispatch, of which , the following is an extract, addressed to the Earl of Liverpool by- General the Earl of Wellington, j dated Fnente Gtiinaldo, May 28, 1812: . When I found that the enemy had retired from this fro: I-!; tier, on rhe 24th of April, I dire& ed Lieutenant- G^ ner IL ] Sir Rowland Hill to carry into execution the operations ' J against thfc enemy's posts and establishments at the p. V- sagfc of the Tagns at Almarjz. Owing to rhe necessary preparations for this expedition, Lieut- Gen. Sir Rowland Hill could not begin his march, | with part of the 2d division of infantry, till the 12th inst. and he attained the' objects ' of his expedition oil the 19th. by taking by storm Forts Napoleon and R- giisa, and the tefes- du- point and'other works by which the enemy's bridge was guirded, by destroying those forts and works, and the ene- m V Vbridge and establishments, R. N L hy taking their MAGA- ZINES and 259 prisoners, and 18 pieces OR cannori. I have the honour rn enclose I. ieut . General Sir Rowland Hill's report of this brilliant exploit; and I beg to draw your Lordship's attention to the difficulties wrrh which he had to contend, as well from the nature of the country, as from the works which the enemy had constru& sd, and to ( He ability and the CHARACTERISTIC qualities displayed by Lieut * Gen. Sir Rowland Hill in persevening in the line, and con- fining himself to the obji'fls chalked out byb's instiuflions, notwithstanding the various obstacles opposed to his pro- gress. I have nothing to add to Lieutenant- General Sir R Hill's report of the conduta of the Officers and troops UNDER his command, exceptingto express my concurrence in all he savs . in their praise. Too much cannot be said of the brave Of- ficers and troops who took by storm, without the assistance of cannon, such works as the enemy's torts on both banksof the Tagtrs, fully garrisoned, in good order, and defended by 18 pieces of artidery. Your Lortlship is aware that the road of Almarai affords - the only good military communication across the Tagus, and form the Tagus to the Gyadiana, below Toledo. All the permanent bridges below the bridge of Arzobispo have been destroyed duting the war, by one or other of ihe bel- F gerents, and the enemy ha, VE' found it impossible to repair them. Their bridge which Lieut.- General Sir R. Hill has destroyed, was one of boats; and 1 doubt their having the means OF replacing it- The communications from the bridges of AI'zd. bispp and Talavera to the GU. didiia, are very dif- ficult, and cmnothe d » emed military communications lor a large army.' The result ' hen of Lieut.- Oenraf Hill's expe- dition. has been to cut off the shortest and best communi- cation between the armies of the South and of- Poriugal. NT'arly about the t'ME that the enemy's troops, reported in my last dispatch to have moved into the L^ ondado de Ni- ebla, marched from Seville, it is reported that another considerable detachment, under Marshal Soult, went to- I, wards . the blockade of Cadiz, and it was expected that another attack was to be made upon Tariifa. . It appear-, however, that the enemy received early intel- ' ligertce'. of Sir Rowland Hill's march. The troops under the command'of General Drouet made A movement to their left, ' and arrived upon the'Giiadiana AT . Medellin oti the 17th inst. and ofl the 18th, a- detachmei'IT of, the cavalry, under the command of the.^ ume General, drove in, as far as Ribera, the piquets of Liewtebant- Geueral Sir William Efskine'S division of cavalry, which had remained in Estremadnra, with a part of the. sd division of infantry, and Lieutenant- General Ha- of Officers and men, the column ceuM not BE form » d for the attack before day- light. Confiding however, in the valour- of the troops, I ordered the imrnediat' » assault * F Fort Napo- leon. * My confidence was fully justified bv. the event. The 1st battalion of the SOih, and one wing of the 7lst regiment, regardless of the enemy's artillery and musketry, esfaladed the woik in three places, nearly at ( he same time The en .

The dispatches were conveyed to town by Major Currie, one of Sir Rowland Hill's Aides- de- Camp, who is also the beaier of a French Imperial Eagle, taken at the brilliant affair of Almaraz. It has the following inscription; " Taken by the 71st Regiment on the 12th of May, 1812." Our Readers will hear with p'easure, that the Barrack System is to be suspended at least for the present. In the House of Commons Mr. Sheridan spoke at some length upon the subjefl of which he had | given notice. He appeared to be indisposed, but considerable trade'to South '!

It was necessary to state, in laying the Ways and Mejtns before the Committee, that as far as re* spefled the Loans, and the mode of paying the interest upon thy Loan now raised, the saflie mode was applicable to both countries:'. The aniomif ol rhe interest to be provided. for, being £ 4- 1- 9,000, it was proposed, is providing for the • payment of that interest, that the, t? x upop Spi- rits distilled in Ireland, shonld he made- applica- ble to the discharge of the interest. He took it (" or granted,, upon a moderate calculation, that, tl •.' tax would Cover the- amount, required. A tax upon " Irish spit its had been laid of. 6 d. per gallon in additinn to the. former tsix, which made the amount of duty five shillings. The consumption of spirits charged with the duty, amounted to 6 556,000 gallons, of which cjuap- tity 792,000 gallons Were exported, leaving e « n. sftqiiently 5,764,000 for home consnmp'titin,— When the tax was formerly proposed, he Ijad sfa'ted, that it might very possihly operate tp re-., duce the consumption ; and he found his ex peti- tions had in some measuie been realized, for the confumprion was reduced one- fifth, leaving , of cotrrse for home consumption 4,610,000 gallons, which, taken at 5x. 5d. Irish currency, per gal- lon, would produce 1,248,000/. being 468,000/. more than the former duty. It would be seen, therefore, hat a surplus remainder of about 19,000/. From al! the information he had been able to obtain, there was every prospeft of a plen- tiful harvest— so that there was every probability of the distilleries being opened. After some fur* ther observations, he concluded with moving— " That towards raising the Supply to be granted to his Majesty, a sum not exceeding 500,000/ be granted to be raised' by the issue of Treasury Bilis."

Mr I. oaD— I have the satisfaction to acquaint your Lord- ship, that your instrutftions relative to the capture and des- truction of the enemy's works at Almaraz have been most fully carried into effect by a detachment of troops under my orders, which marched from Almeildralejo on the 12th inst. The bridge was, as. your Lordship knows, protected by strong works thrown'up by ' t ie French on both sides of the river; and further covered on the southern side by the castls and redoubts of Mirabete about a. league off, commanding thjJ- pass of thaf rfame; through which runs the road to Mad- rid,, being the only one passable for carriages of any descrip- tion by which the bridge can be approached The works on the left bank of the river were a tete- du* pont, built of Eiasonry, and strongly entrenched, and on the high gtound above it, a Iafge and well- construiled fort, i called Napoleon, with JUI inte/ jor intrenchuient, and loop- holed tower in its centre. ' This fort- contained nine pieces of qannon, with a garrison of betwe^ n four and five Rundr d men. ' I here being afto On the opposite aide of the river, on a height immediately aboyg the bridge, a vefy'cemplete fort, recently con » o ufled, r which bilked anal added much to it » defence. On the morning of the 10th, the troops reached Jaraice- jo, and the'same evening marched' in three columne; the left column commanded by Dieur - Gen.

Major General Howard ( 50th,' 71st, and 92d . regiments), which I accompanied myself,' to a pass in the mountains, through which a most difficult aud circnitons foot- path leads by the village of Rotnangordo to the bridge ; the centre column, binder Major-' GVneral Long ( Gth and l' 8th Portuguese infantry, tuider Colonel Ashworth, and 13th light dragpyrs,' vith the artillery), advanced upon the high road to the pa<^ of Mirabete.-, The t wo flank columns were provided withlladders, and it was intended that either of them should proceed to escalcade the foirs against which they were directed, had circum- stances pruVed favourable; the difficulties, however, which each had to encounter on its march were such, that it was. impossible for them tojeach their respective points before day- break; I judge it - best, therefore, as there waj na longer a possibility of turprfie,' to defer the attack until vee should be better acquainted with the nature and position of the works, and the troops bivouacked on the Leioa. ' I determined on endeavourirg to penetrate to the bridge by the mountain path leading through the village of Rarnau- gordd, although, by that means, I should be deprived of the u « e of my artillery. • On the evening of the 18th I moved with Major- General Howard's brigade, ana the 6th Portuguese regiment or th. e • operation," provided with ataluig Uidders, Although tlij distance marched did not etceed five or six miln, the difii jj c'ultifi of the road wtfre « ich, that with the » nited cxe.' fcoai ' The impression made upon the enemy's troops wns Mir1',, that panic soon communicated iti- eff in those on rhe right bank of the river, and Fort - Ra ® n « a" ip. stafltl^' ibbnjoned, tire " garrison flyi'ig in. the gfeadest *- m usiou toA itds Neva MorJ.

The impossibility of^ ijvi nein^ dap- ivei them of this opportunity of di^ r. in- Tj'^ hing th^ msejvf, bu. t lhe share which they had in the opcat on, and- the ll'il which they displayed, entitles them te my warmest com- mendation ; p. t:,, ( cannot avoid, to mention the steadiness an^ L good discipline of the 6th Portagneit h. f- r. o y, and tft- o com- panies of the 60th regiment, under Colonel Ash worth, which formed the reserve to this attack. Our operations in. this quarter were much favoured by * diversion made by I. ieutenunt- General Chowne, with the troops undei his orders, against rhe ca- tlc of MiraLete, succeeded in inducing rhe enemy to believe that we slwi. Jd not attack th° forts near the bridge, until we had To x. edt the pass, and thus have made way for our artillery, f h- 5 l. ieurenant- Oeneral c « ndu< 9ed this operation, as well as hi* former advance, entirely ro my satisfaclion. I regiet much that the pecuoar situation of Mirabete should have prevent- ed my allowing the gallant coips under his orders to foitow ap an operation which they had commenced with much sp rit, and were so anxious to complete. I cannot too strongly express how much I am satisfied with the conduit of Major- General Howard tOrou^ h'. nitf whole of this opetaiion, the most arduous part of which has fallen to his. share ; and particularly of the manner in which he led his brigade ro the assault. He was ably assisted Hy his st ff, Brigide- M ijor Weinyss, of the 50th ; and Lieu- tenant Battersby, of the 2Sd light dragoons. To M„ jor Gcneial Long I am also indebted for hie assist-: ante, although his column was not immediately engaged.' Lieutenant- Colonel Stewart- and Major Harrison, t^ f the* 5<> th ; and Major Cother, of the,, 71st; commanded tiie three attacki, and led them in a most gallant and spirit*. 4 manner. I have received the greatest assistance from Lient., Colnnet Dickson, of the royal art llery, whom, with a brigade ol pounders, a company of British and one of Portu^ Ue^, artil- lery, your Lordship was pleased to put under my orders; circumstances did not permit his guns being brought into, play ;• but his - exertions, and those of his Officers an I men,, during the attaek and destruction of the place, were ua-• wearied. In the latter service, Lieutenanc Thiele, of the royal German artillery, was blewn up ; and we have to re- gret in him a most gallant Officer;- he had particul. rly is. tinguiihed. himself in the assault.

NEWRY, 12th J13 belfast commercial chronicle Th • following letter, containing some useful hints we insert in the same unpolished style in which we received it th EDITOR of the BELFAST CHRONICLE. SIR— T have been thinking- and meditating this some time past, respecting the deplorable situa- tion of the poor; and it is with heartfelt satisfac- tion and delight, I see the people coming forward to assist their suffering brethren. I understand manv parishes have subscribed very handsomely for this purpose: so far very well— but, Mr. Edi- tor, besides par- chial contributions, I think fam:- lie « and individuals should, as far as in them lie, " feed the hungry." Ft' st, then, persons who can spare a few pounds sterling till after Lammas, should, I think, lend them to proper objefls, by which means, many, very many families might be kept within ihe walls of their cots, and by usino proper industry, would be enabled to bring themselves : hrough; it would also keep the pbor creatures out of the usurer's paw. Secondly, each and every family should preserve the water in which meat of any kind has been boiled, and by mixing some suitable herbs therewith, would make very good and comfortable broth for many a starving creature. Thirdly, every family that has more oatmeal seeds and m'lk than they can rea- tonally make use of, should make flummery for the poor, which would assist realobjeas more than money. One more advice to families and I have done with them : th y should live as savingly as possible ; in my opinion, all parties, expensive din- ners, & c. See. should be abolished during the Sum- mer. Some persons will rise up in Vras against this; but, Mr. Editor, had they seen many poor objetfs who have come under my notice people in the most melancholy distress imaginable ; had they, I spy, - seen them, they would willingly, glad- ly, and freely, give up many, I might say all in- dulgences, to feed one hungry fellow- creature. But are young ladies and gentlemen to remain idle and negligent during this awful crisis ? Not at all; the farmer in towns, villages, and thickly inhabited parts of the country, should join, and with one heart a- nd mind pull together, in endea- vouring to ameliorate the condition of the poor. They should curtail their expences and put all into the common purse. Could they not purchase flax, and employ many poor creatures to spin ? Conld not they establish a kind of repository or poor basket, and by preparing and selling many things, raise a small sum evety week ? If any who are thus inclined, should cast their eyeS over these few lines, I would, as a true friend to the poor, and as an " Observer" of their distress, advise th m to visit every poor person whom they assist; visit them when they least expefl an intruder, that their real situation may the better be discovered. If they live in a market or fair town, they might, to save the rent of a regular repository, on those days give up a room or hall for the purpose, where they might have caps, bonnets, and many other trade up articles for sale. I think much assist- ance might be afforded the poor in this way. But some may say they have not time for this. I an- » wer— if young ladies were to begin to work at half- past six in the morning, two hours and an half would be gained, which, with other spare moments during the day, would fully answer the plan I have been endeavouring to enforce, and would tend to make them more healthy. Now for the latter— by being moderate, they might save something for the poor— every gentle- man could save at the very least 10J. per week, which would be something for the hungry and starv. ing. They might purchase meal wholesale, and tell it in small quantities at wholesale price. There are many ways they might be useful. I have just written down those ideas as they struck my mind. Mr. Editor, by inserting them, you will much oblige a constant reader of your useful PaPer- OBSERVES. June 10, 1812. There is one effeflual plan, and only one ; it is in few words, that the people should, for a time, resolve not to drink whiskey, smuggled or not smuggled. Many will, no doubt, object to this radical cure, not considering its happy effefls in removing so pernicious an evil. Snme may say that barley in many places assist the farmer in paying his rent, and that the landlords wink at the pra& ice of converting it, and also oats, into whiskey ; no doubt Innishowen was formerly pre- ferred, and perhaps still is, to any other, and pur- chased by all ranks in society, from the priest tn the beggar. But let the dear and well- beloved landlords, and the growers of barley consider, that after a sufficient quantity is produced for supply- ing the brewers of ale and porter, for hulling, and family use, that the land might be profitably em- ployed ( as some provident farmers already do), for raising wheat, even for bread to the- family ; on their rich lands they might also raise potatoe oats, clover, & c. & c. What man not utterly deprived of every bene- volent feeling for his country, that would not pre- fer a plan like this, if properly matured, to the present mode of having our barley, and even large quantities of meal and oats, made into whis- key, whither it pays the Excise, or otherwise— and that whiskey utterly lost to the community ; and not unfrequently the means of plots, riots, in- dolence, sickness, starvation of poor families, and even death itself. In order to wean the country, and in particu- lar the common people, from this intoxicating and pernicious potion, a substitute might be hit on by our wise and patriotic Government, viz. by a more liberal encouragement to the brewers of ale, beer, and porter. But who that is conversant in the laws of Excise, as they now stand, doth not perceive, that unless the brewers are by Govern- ment supported and encouraged, it must remain out of their power to make fine strong malt liquor, such as we had SO or 40 years ago— and if this is not the case, the people will not drink much of it; the quality, not the price ( if not unreasonable), is their greatest objection. Some will say that spirituous liquors agree best with their constitutions, and without them they cannot entertain their friends. Be it so j have we not abandance of islands that produce rum— are not those connefled with us in trade, and take large quantities of our exports ? so we need not he at a loss for good spirits, on which the duties are regularly paid. Not so on whiskey ; now ad- vanced in price, and having previously advanced the price of bread ; and has long since destroy- ed the morality, the virtue, and the industry of thousands of its unfortunate viftims, male and female. These are only imperfefl hints; but if worthy of notice ( as the writer conceives them to be), they might be followed up and digested by many abler pens. If an attempt is made to carry this plan into effedt, it might not be improper to call meetings of the different districts or parishes, to consult the inhabitants; and if they are governed by the pro priety of this projef), let one and all of them re- solve, that after a certain day, they will abstain from tasting whiskey for two years, save and ex- cept the quantity that may be on hand ; and that neither innkeeper nor housekeeper shall, from that day, purchase any more. Government can enable the wholesale trader, who has a quantity on hand, to export it. Should this method be adopted, it must effec- tually put a stop in the aforesaid counties to the smuggling line, those counties, we apprehend, be- ing the principal seat of that trade in Ireland ;— and lastly, if the brewers are encouraged and sup- ported by Government, the great body of the community, the common people, will rejoice in the happy change they will immediately experi- ence, and bless that Government that have been the instrument in rescuing millions of them from a state of idiocy, immorality, and poverty, into a state of sobriety and competence. Bally money, 4 th June, 1812. B. J. CLONMEL, JUNE 13. 7i tit EDITOR of th BELFAST CHRONICLE. SIR— Great have been the exertions of Excise Officers, and of Government, to suppress the ille. gal distillation of whiskey in the northern counties of Ireland, viz. Itown, Tyrone, Armagh, Berry, and Antrim: those exertions have not been quite cffyftual. an education suitable to men— the girls ar. » not only instructed iti r » ading and writing, but kiitt- ing, sewing, making bonnets, carpets, embroi- dery, See.

The day being greatly occupied in the inspection, so far as we have stated, we believe the Generals had not an op. portunity of visiting the other regimental Schools — where, if they had gone, we are certain they would have felt a similar gratification. Lieut.- General Drummond and suite proceeded imme- diately afterwards to dine at C trrick. We have . heard of an outrageous attack on a Dragoon of the 19th regiment, in Carrick, on Tuesday last— but the different reports we heard varied so widely that we hesitate to publish any thing more than that the man was very savagely beaten, and that a volunteer from the Kildare, who saw him abused, rushed upon a villain who was foremost in butchering him, whom he seized, and from whose person he took a pistol; but while in the act of dragging the fellow to the guard- house, his prisoner was rescued from him, by a mob, with such effectual resistance, however, on his part, that he kept the pistol and the hat of the fellow he had seized —( ClonmelPaper.) EDINBURGH, JUNE 10. LANCASTERIAN SCHOOLS.— A general meeting of the Edinburgh Lancasterian School Society was held in the Society's School- room, Caltonhill, on Monday the 11th ult.— The Lord Provost in the chair. A report of the proceedings of the committee of Dire& ors during the preceding year, was read and approved of, and ordered to be print- ed. Thanks were unanimously voted to the fol- lowing benefactors, viz.— To Sir Henry Moncrieff Wellwood, for his excellent sermon, preached on the 21st February last, for the benefit of the So- ciety— To Messrs. Archibald Constable & Co. and to Messrs. Thomas Allan & Co. for having gener- ously presented the Society with 1000 copies of Sir Henry Moncrieff Wellwood's sermon, free of all expences— To Mr, Joseph Lancaster, for the assistance which he had given the Society in es- tablishing their School j/ for having recommended to them a qualified teacher s for different dona- tions in aid of their funds, from the produce of the leflures in Edinburgh, to the amount of < 676; and for various important services in the manage ment of their institution. Thanks were voted also to the Direftors, ordinary and extraordinary, and to the Secretaries, and Trea- urer, for their attention to the business of their several depart, ments: Also to a number of Ladies, who have taken a zealous interest in the establishment of a female school in Edinburgh, under the manage- ment of this Society. The general meeting ap- proved of a plan submitted to them by the Direc- tors for erecting two new sch ools in Edinburgh, the one for boys and the other for girls exclusive, ly; the girls to be instruQed, on the new plan, not only in reading, writing, and arithmetic, but aiso in sewing, and other female arts. BRITISH NAVAL FORCE. Thursday a private of the 19th Light Dragoons had narrowly escaped drowning, while swimming at the Green. He had sunk and been two minutes under water, when he was taken up by some bro- ther soldiers; but he was speedily recovered by proper attention. Yesterday morning, between four and five o'clock, the quota of the Hon. Captain Hutchin- son's Yeomanry, destined for permanent duty at Killenaule, marched hence in high spirits for their new quarters. Tuesday last, Lieutenant- General Drummond arrived here, and the following day, accompanied by Majors- Generals Lee and suite, inspe< 5ted the several military corps at present forming our garrison, in the permanent barrack yard. After the Monagha'n, Kildare, and Montgomery regi- ments of foot went through their various military evolutions, the 19th Light Dragoons, and Artil- lery and Drivers' Corps, performed their differ- ent exercises. The whole had a pleasing and in- teresting effeft, particularly the movements of the cavalry and ordnance. The General Officers appeared highly pleased with the state and disci- pline of all the troops. A great number of spec- tators were present on the occasion, and much en- tertained by the sight. The manoeuvres of the Monaghan excited admiration. This fine regi- ment moved in every respeifl like the most perfedt piece of machinery. Their present, or general salute, was as a flash of lightening; and they ad- vanced and retired in line as if a wall were moved, straight as an arrow, no man projefting one inch before the other; their subdivisional movements were mathematically correft,— all good soldiers, from the Colonel to the Drummer, they entirely possess the genuine esprit da corps— and their mo. tions were as those of a great body impelled by one soul. In a word, the best veterans of Europe could not surpass them in steadiness and precision. The General Officers, with their Aides- du- Camp, afterwards inspected the barracks, & c. & c and expressed their approbation of the entire mi jitary establishment of the town. Having visited t[ je Monaghan School, in which are instructed 84 male and 52 female children, they justly compli- mented the officers for their liberality in providing them every necessary for rendering them useful and good members of society. The boys receive The following statement is extracted from the official returns tip to 1st June:— At Sea— 94 of the line, 8 fifties, 121 frigates, 101 stoops, six bombs, 128 brigs. 33 cutters, 57 schoon » .- s— Total 5" 42.

We might quote the whole of this beautifu passage from Shakespeare, as illustrative of the merits and talents of the gentleman in question, who has lately paid the debt of nature, and whose public and private charafter deserves our greatest eulogium,— We may say in honour to our coun- try, that he was a true- born Irishman, with all its native humour and goodness of heart, On the stage, where he was many years an excellent co- mic performer, none surpassed him in the Mile- sian walk, and the house often resounded with en- core for the repetition of his spngs, which always set the audience in a roar. His last appearance in the Drama ( after many years of retirement) s in a musical piece called The Whim of tl> e Moment-*- written by his daughter, Miss Owen- son, now Lady Morgan, in which he performed an Irish character, and to which Mr. Atkinson gave a most excellent prologue. In domestic life, Mr. Owenson was always distinguished as an af- feftionate hu* band and loving father; and the History of Dermody, by Mrs. Raymond, has just- ly celebrated Mr. Owenson as the patron of dis- tressed and aspiring genius, by his humane and " beral support of the Irish Chatterton, and by introducing him to the acquaintance, and to the patronage of the late Countess of Moira. « Take him all in all." We consider this tribute as justly due to the memory of the late Mr. Owenson, both as a gen- tleman of real worth, and as a credit to the pro fession in which he was so long a favourite.— He has left two amiable daughters, Lady Clarke and Lady Morgin, to regret the loss of a dearly- be- loved parent, who were the comfort and delight of his declining days, who inherit much of his original genius, and who are equally esteemed in society. ARMAGH YEOMANRY. On the 4th of this month, the Yeomanry of the City of Armagh were assembled, according to the established custom, of honoring the King's birth- day.— After being dismissed, the Corps, commanded by Mr. John Barnes, laid down their arms, refusing to serve any longer under their Captain, because he had signed the Protestant Petition to the Legislature, in favour of Catholic Emancipation— Gen. M'Kenzie, who reviewed the Yeomanry on that day, immediately ap- proached the spot, and harangued the turbulent Corpse— What the General said on the occasion is not accurately known: but it is reported, that he desired them, if they had any cause of com- plaint to make against their Officer, to state it on paper— to take up their arms— and to behave like soldiers. The huzzaed ; but it is not known, whether the shout was in approval of the Gene- ral's eloquence, or in contempt of Mr. Barnes, who was retiring from the field, perhaps to secure his personal safety, though it is probable that it originated in the influence of both motives. The Hampden Club held its second meeting on Monday, at the Thatched House, London, Mr. Northmore in the Chair, when Lord Byron, Mr. Bosville, Mr. Waithman, and a number of other andidates, were elefted Members. In the Cadiz Regency Gazette, of the 14th May, is a dispatch from Mr. H. Wellesley, inclosing one from Lord Castlereagh to the Spanish Regency, commanicating that the British Government had ordered a supply of clothing for 100,000 men to be prepared, which would be immediately trans, mitted, along with supplies of ? rms and ammuni- tion. Subjoined is the following return:— Return of clothing for 100,900 men, ordered for the ser- vice of Spain:— Blue cloth jackets with facings, blue pan- taloons, white kersey waistcoats, felt- caps, foraging ditto and knapsacks, 100,000 of each; shirts, and pairs of half- stockings, 200,000 of each ; pairs of halr- boots, linen jack- ets, and ditto pantaloons, 100,000 of each; 200.000 pair of shoes; 100,030 great coats and slings; 100,000 sets of ac- coutrements, besides canteens, camp kettles, shoe and clothes brushes, black balls, & c. & c.

We haveleatnt the following particulars of the French squadron recently destroyed by the Nor- thumberland, from an intelligent Master of one of the merchant- vessels captured by it, and who was on board the Ariadne. It is important in two points of view : first, it shews the wretched state of the French navy ; and secondly, the contemptuous light in which the French officers consider their friends the Americans :—" The Ariadne, of 44 guns and 880 men, was com- manded by Commodore Fertier, a Member of the Legion of Honour, an experienced officer ; the other officers were young, and ignorant of their profession. The crews of both frigates were a complete medley of French, Dutch, and men rom every part of Europe under the French; yoke ; the greater part of them new conscripts; the Commodore's ship had not more than 30 or 40 good seamen on board. The Ariadne had seldom less than thirty in her sick list; about 12 died of a malignant fever; the people were short of clothing, very ditty, swarming with vermin, and infected with the itch. From the miserable manner in which they were manned, their general dislike to the service, and the continual dread they betrayed of falling in with a British force, it is thought a very inferior squadron would have captured them with little difficulty. The Eng- lish masters and their passengers were treated in the kindest manner, lived and messed in the ward- room with the Lieutenants, and had every indul- gence and respect shewn to them; whereas a]] the Americ ia master* were tituted with tnarke'g contempt; were s= nt to me1 is with the boatswaifl and petty officers, and ver f few of them were allowed to shew themselves, on the quarter- deck. The ships destroyed bv this squadron were, 10 English, 13 Americans, 3 P < rttiguese, and a Spa- nish packet— in the whole, 2' ?; those of the Eng « ish not valuable, being all ot- ttward bound." A fatal and unaccountablt 1 accident happened in Grimsby Roads, on Thurs< lay ( e'nniglit, about noon. Whilst the Revenae c utter RepulSe, Cap- tain Mason, was'lying at a' ichor in the above Roads, the Captain being o n the after- part of the deck, and six men sitting on the fore- part at work, Captain Mason suddenl ' y became missing : an inquiry was made, whethc r he had gone be- low ; the cabin was looked i. n to, and every place examined where he was likely to be, but he could not be found. On looking ou t, however, one of the men saw something fioatin g on the surface of the water, at the distance of about 150 yards From the cutter— a boat was in irhediately put off, and it was found to be the C; iptain's hat. The unfortunate Gentleman, it wa s clear, therefore, had gone overboard ( and mu . st have sunk im- mediately), but how, or in wh tat manner, is un- known.— His body was dragp ed for very care- fully, but had not been found < m Sunday. Singular Occurrence.— \ s a get ir! eman in Bo'ness was lately eating a hen's egg o F an unusual size he found imbedded in the yolk , a piece of incus » trated matter, similar in shape, and fully equal irr size to the common bush- sparro' » ' s egg. It seems evidently hollow, though from i ts being preserved in its original state, its contents have not been as- certained. The shell is com] >! ete! y formed, is pure white, and feels harder than that of the largest hen's eggs. The hen is consi derably above the average size, and now and then lays eggs, exceed- ing by much the usual dimensio ns. MELANCHOLY ACCIDENT.— I Sunday morning, the 7th inst. a melancholy scene took place, near* ly opposite the Brick House, ii 1 Chelsea Reach. Mr. R. Christie, a gentleman of' respectable con- nections, and holding a situation in the Transport Office, went on the Thames w: ith his nephew, a fine lad, seventeen years old, in a pleasure- b > at, to enjoy the amusement of sailing. They had proceeded up the river as far us Chelsea, where the weather became so calm, t, hat they fastened their main and gib sails, and remained immove- able on the smooth surface of the water, which was then not ruffled by the slightest undulation. In this situation they continued for : » considerable t; me, when a sudden gust of yind, f Tom the west, filled the sails, instantly upset the boat, and car- ried her unhappy crew to a watery grave. Mr. R. Christie, who was a remarkabl e good swim- mer, was seen to gain the surfact; ot the water, but whether from the anxiety arisin. g from there- flection that he was the unfortunate: instrument of his nephew's death, or whether hiis legs got en. tangled with tbe rigging of the boa t, is not certain, but he again sunk, and was seen n » > more I VejU ther of the bodies have since been i found, which is ascribed chiefly to the circum stance of there having been a remarkably high spring tide at the time the accident happened. J Christie had a gold watch in his fob, and somi; bank notes in his pocket. ESCAPE FROM FRANCE—- Situ "' day nine men were put on shore at Sandga'e, o> jf of a scho- ner which had picked them UP at s fa, they having made their escape from the pri v p of VerduYt, which they effefted by means of \ vorking through the common sewer. The origin* I number which escaped in this way from the pri » » n was 48, but on their arrival at the sea shore, which tb » y ac- complished in safety, and wher f they had pro- cured a boat for their purpose, thev wr: re sur- rounded by a guard of soldiers: ? n t- is extremi- ty, they attempted to defend ttiemselves with some tomyhawks which they h ai found in the boat. In the contest 12 of h • n> were hot, 27 made prisoners, and nine escapes I, although every" one of them was wounded. AFRICAN RECRUITS.— A pl;> a has been lately devised for tecruiting the West India Regiments by native Africans. The merit > f this promising establishment is due to an intelligent and spirit, d officer, Major Wingfield, of the 8th West Indl* regiment. Government have liberally provided him with every necessary article, calculated to en- gage the Africans to inlist. He takes with hin> a Staff, Captains and Subalterns, to form the si- news of the regiments, which he is expetfed to raise. The non- commissioned officers and the band consist of Africans, who wiL' be instttirnental in inducing their countrymen to enter. Each re- cruit is to receive a bounty of eight guineas, either in money, or in such articles ot convenience ard ornament as may suit his taste. Major Wing- field is supported, not only by Government, but by the African Society, and bv all the friends of the abolition of the Slave Trade. He sails in a few days, in the Herald armed ship, from Ports, mouth for the Island of Goree, the head- quarters of the establishment. That island now contains upwards of 2000 captive blacks, who have been taken by our cruisers in slave ships. Govern- ment allow for these captures a bounty of forty pounds a man; hence this service is become the most lucrative in the Navy. These captives are set free on their arrival in Goree;— but few have the means, or the wish to return to their homes, for most of them have been taken prisoners in the petty wars of the country, and sold to slave merchants. It is expefled that a great number will voluntarily enter into the service ; and we a, e well assured that it is the determination of Major Wingfield that all the blacks on the island shall be treated with strifl humanity. Mr. Eastlake, whom we have before introduced to the notice of our readers, sails with him. That enterprising and enthusiastic charafter, whose objeft is to ex- plore the interior of Africa, and who has taken every precaution to avoid the difficulties to which Mungo Parke was subjefled, has likewise received the sanftion of Government. He is a young man of liberal education, considerable abilities, and in- defatigable perseverance; and we doubt not that he will benefit the countries he means to explore, and bring an accession to the resources of his na » tive country.
