DOWNING- STREET, JULY L Hi trail of a Letter from General Ron to General Cooke, dated Carthagena, May 22. My letter ( No. 17) of the 16ih inst. would ad- vise you of the progress of a combined expedition to the Westward. The result has justified the sanguine hopes entertained of the success of ope- rations, carried on under the direction of an Offi- cer of the zeal and ability possessed by Captain Adftm, of the Invincible. Nothing could be better timed than the movements of General Friere, who, in consequence of the information [ sent to General O'Donnel, made an attack upon the ene- my, and drove him from Baza on the 13th, the same day on which the force under the command of Captain Adam, appeared off Almeira ; that Officer having judiciously taken time to send on shore, at some distance from the place, to ascer- tain the strength, position, and movements of the enemy, learned that they w^ re in the place to the number of 4° or 500, including cavalry, and h id not as yet made any detachments to assist in op posing General Friere; hut early on the 14' th inst. it appears that the French General had sent three Couriers to Almeria ( no doubt ignorant of this expedition), to order the gariison to join him immediately, which it proceeded to do accord, ingly, and as it marched out Captain Adam landed the 300 Spanish troops he had with him, under the command of Colonel Alveor, and took possession of the place. The consequence of this has been, that Captain Adam has bsen enabled to take or destroy a privateer and her two prizes; to blow up the Castle of " San Elmo, which is si- tuated upon an almost inaccessible rock, and all the sea defences and batteries which protected the anchorage of this place, and formed a secure re- sort for the numerous privateers which have been long an annoyance to the British and Spanish trade on this coast. Captain Adam has also em- barked all the serviceable guns, carriages, and Ordnance stores, totally destroying the remainder, and was busily employed on these services, and in forwarding the embarkation of a quantity of sulphur and lead from the King's mines, at six leagues from that place, under the direction of the Spanish Intendant, who had joined him with 100 cavalry from Nijar, when he wrote to me on the lfeth inst. in answer to the express I sent to him by a gun- boat, to acquaint him of General Friere's retreat before a superior force of the ene- my at Baza. General O'Donnel was with me here t'- ro days, when he received dispatches from General Freire and Colonel Alveor, informing him, that the inhabitants of Almeira had received the Spanish troops with the most enthusiastic patriotism ; and as by the destruction of the for- tiRcations, that port can no longer be useful to the enemy, either as a safe rendezvous for priva- teers and their prizes, or as a point d'appui to the right flank of their advanced position, from whence they have hitherto annoyed General O'Donnel's army, it is to be hoped that these loyal inhabitants will be relieved from any filture visit of their tyrannical oppressors, when the Spanish troops aie withdrawn. . Head- quarters, Camp before Hija Ruix, June 2. MOST EXCELLENT SIR— I hasten to communi- cate to your Excellency the intelligence of the se- vere a< 5tion which I fought yesterday with the grea'er part of th? troops under my command, in the plains of Bornos. This aition is, perhaps, the most serious that his been fought since the beginning of our revolution ; and an unexpected occurrence has alone deprived me of the glory of a complete victory. I am surrounded by wound- ed, none of whom, however, received their wounds with the bayonet or sword, although all arms were used. The loss of the French I believe to have been not less considerable, for they did not ven ture to throw a single party across the Guadalette to molest my retreat. I remain in my position, determined to perish with my troops rather than abandon one wounded man : I am at a great loss how to provide for the means of transporting them, as there are none in this part of the country.— God preserve your Excellency. FRANCISCO BALLASTEROS. To the Most Excellent Seiior the Governor of Gibraltar. ADMIRALTY OFFICE, JUI. Y 4, 1812. Admiral Lord Keith has transmitted to John Wil- son Croker, Esq. a letter from Captain Sir Home Popham, dated on board his Majesty's ship Venerable, off Lequitio, the 21st of last month, giving an account of an attack made upon the French troops in posses- sion of that place by the Spanish Guerillas, aided by Sir Home Popham, and the officers and men of his Majesty's ships under his orders. The enemy had possession of a hill fort command- ing the town, calculated to resist any body of iufan- try; and also two hundred men posted in a fortified convent within the town, the walls of which were im- pervious to any thing less than an 18 pounder. The convent might have been destroyed by the ships ; but as the town would have materially suffered, and as the guns of the Venerable made no visible impression on the fort, it was determined to erect a battery on a hi!" opposite to the latter, which the enemy considered as quite inaccessible to cannon, and in that confidcnce rested his security. A gun was accordingly landed in the forenoon of the 2(> h ( chiefly by the exertions of Lieut. Groves, of the Venerable), notwithstanding the sea was break ing with such violence against the rocks at the foot of the hill, that it was doubtful whether a boat could get near enough for that purpose. It was then hove up a short distance by a moveable capstan ; but this was found so tedious, thai men and bullocks were sent tor, to draw it; and it was at length dragged to the sum mit of the hill, by 36 pair of bullocks, 400 Guerillas, and 100 seamen, headed by the Honourable Captain Bofcverie. It was immediately mounted, and fired its tirst shot at four in the afternoon. The gun was so admirably served, that at sun- set a practicable breach was made in the wall of the fort, and the Guerillas volunteered to storm it. The first party was repul- sed, but the secon i gained possession without any I considerable loss : several df the enemy escaped On I the opposite side, and got into tire convent. In the course of the evening the sea abated a little, and a landing upon the Island of St. Nicholas was effected, though with some difficulty, by Lieut. O'Reilly, of the Surveilla ire ; marines were also land- j ers, six iid from that ship, the Medusa, and Rhin, with a car- ronade from eadi ship ; and Captain Malcolm took : he command of the island during the night, whilst Capt. Sir G. Collier was in the Venerable's battery n the hill. At dawn of the 21st, a 21 pounder was brought to the east side of the town, within 200 yards of the convent, and another was in the act of being landed ipon St. Nicholas to bombard it, when the French commandant, Gillort, Chief de Battalion, beat a par- ley, and surrendered with the remainder- ofhis party, consisting of 290 men of the 119th regiment. The enemy's loss had not been ascertained, but it was sup- , osed to have been considerable, as tile Guerillas who vere better posted, and fired with much celerity, had 56 men killed or wounded. Not a man was hurt in -. is Majesty's squadron, either by the surf or the ene- my. There were* two IS pounders mounted on the tort, and three small guns in the barracks; the latter, with the muskets, were given to the Gueriilas, who were also supplied with every description of military stores, of which they stood in need. The guns in i lie fort wttre tvndei ed useless, the fort destroyed, and the convent blown up. Sir H. Popham commends in high terms the con- duct of all the officers and men employed on this oc- casion ; and expressed his sense of the assistance rendered by Sir Howard Douglass and Gen. Carrol, who had embarked in the Venerable, and volunteered their services wherever they could be employed. Vice- Admiral Sir E. Pellew has transmitted to J. W. Croker, Esq. two letters, addressed to him by Captains Campbell and Thomas, of his Majesty's ships Leviathan and Undaunted ; the former giving an account of an attack nutde on tbe 29th of April last, by the boats of the Leviathan, under the direc- tions of Lieut. Dobbs, on a French privateer and se- veral merchant vessels at Agay ; four of the latter were brought out, and the privateer, a brig of 14 guns and 80 men, was taken possession of; but having been hauled on shore, she could not be got off, and^ beirig set on fite, it was afterwards extinguished by the enemy : the vessel was carried without any loss on our part, but during the endeavours made to bring her off, two men were killed and four wounded by the enemy's fire from the shore. The latter reporting an attack made on the same ay on a French convoy near the mouth of the Rhone, by the boats of the Undaunted, Volontaire, and Blos- som, under tbe directions of Lieutenant Eager, of the first ship : of 26 vessels composing the convoy, seven were brought out, twelve burnt, and two left stranded on the beach ; a national schooner of four 12 pounders and 74 men, was amongst the vessels burnt. This service was performed without any loss; the boats being ably protected by Capt. Stewart in the Blossom sloop. wall 30 feet high. Ac ' he land side the rock is excavated nearly 30 feet deep, and 60 wide, with a narrow drawbridge, which is die only entrance into tile castle. I intend to fill up as much of tha ditch as passible, by springing mines under each • j bastion, I found in the ca. tle two brass 24 pound- - ers, six iron 18 poitn. lers, a 6- pou: idar and how- itzer, vrhich were spiked by the enemy. He his left a numb r of deserters, principally Germans and Fl- ming's, who inform me that they were the whole of the foreigners in this battalion of the S2J regiment; also that they have long looked for an opportunity to desert, as they were drag- ged from their families, and forced into the French service ; one of them has been eight years trom his country. The enemy's loss was very se- J vere, but cannot be ascertained, as the wounded ' were carried off in waggons. I am happy to in- form you that we have had no loss, except the Termagant one raan wounded, and tha B isili k one slightly. The privateer was one of Barbas- tro's small vessels, armed with two guns, and 30 or 40 men. I cannot conclude without informing you, that the Officers and men wounded so re- cently at Malaga, came to their quarter?. Lieut. Sp lsfeury, whose wound is still opea, and Mr, Bell, the Boatswain, who lost his arm, did net spare themselves.— I have the honour to be, & c. T. US HER. TRIAL FOR MURDER. f Transmitted by Commodore Penro^.] Hyacinth, off Alaiunec- r, May 27. SIR— I had the honour to inform you, in my letter of the 20' h inst. that the Termagant had destroyed the castle at Nersa, and that the Guer- Has came down from the mountains, and entered the town. I have now to acquaint you, that I went on shore with Captain Hamilton, and waited upon the Guerilla Leader, who informed me that the French had retreated to Almuneear, seven miles to the eastward, and that they had 300 men there; and considering himself strong enough to attack them, he prop > sed marching upon it without loss of time. A I was desirous to render the Gger- illas every assistance in mv power, I promi- ed him to anchor the ships in a position to place the enemy between our fire, which gave him great satisfac- tion, and his men great confidence. I according- ly b ire up at four o'clock the following evening ( 20; h inst.) with the Termagant and Basalisk, and anchored at point- blank range before the castle, which we silenced in less than an hour. As the Guerillas were to have arrived at seven o'clock, and there was no appearance of them at eight, Captain Hamilton volunteered to return to Nersa, in his gig, to learn if any thing had occur- red to prevent their moving forward ; and at four in the morning he returned, and informed me that a reinforcement which they expefted had not ar- rived, and that they waited for them before they could advance. At seven the enemy again open- ed his fire, having during the night mounted a howitzer in a breach made in the covered way t » the castle; but by ten they were again silenc.- d, and driven with great loss into the town, where they fortified themselves in the church and houses. Desir » us of spaiing the inhabitants, whom the French had thus cruelly exposed, I ceased firing ; and having destroyed a privateer which lay at anchor . under tiie castle, I at two o'clock weighed and ran down to Nersa, for the purpose of con- certing plans with the Guerillas. On my arrival I. had the satisfaction to meet a division of Ballasi teros's Guerillas, commanded by Col. Febrien, an Officer of the iruesi patriotism, who, partaking of all the zeal of his General, immediately put him self and troops at my disposal. The roads through the mountains being very tedious, and as no time was to be lost, I resolved to take the infantry, consisting of aboul 200, on board ; and I ordered j the cavalry to move forward through the motm tains immediately, and take a position in the rear of the enemy ; whilst the infantry, with all the j small- arm men and marines were to land on his 1 flanks. I am sorry that the delay of a calm gave i the enemy time to learn our combined movement, j as he instantly fled with great precipitation, and, joining a corps of 200 at Motril, within four miles of Almunecar, he retreated upon Granada. As soon as I arrived at my anchorage, I sent Lieut. Spilsbury and a Guerilla Officer to hoist the respective flags on the Cast e; and immediate- ly began to demolish the works, which ate ex- trers^ lv strong, as it is built on a peninsula of high rock, scarped all round the Be* fate, and a OLD BAILEY, LONDON, FRIDAY, July 2. 7 hamas Bowler was capitally indicted, for wilfully, maliciously, and feloniously firing a loaded blunderbuss at Wm. Burrowes, on the 30th of May last, at A . berton, in tiie parish of Harrow. Wm. Burrowes stated, that he is a farmer in A'- perton, and a hay- salesman in St. James's hay- marke . He usually passes from his residence every market morning, by that of the prisoner, on his wav to town: and about seven in the morning above stated, h? \ va » travelling towards London, in a chaise cart, ovei the canal bridge, near his house, and the forge of a b! icl . smith, named Jones, when he observed under t e siiade of a tree, close by the road- side, and about ilO yards from him, the legs and thighs of a man, whom hi; took to be the prisoner, and, when he cams with, in 15 yards of him, the prisoner raised a b'undeibuss, took deliberate aim at him, and immediately witness stooped down in his cart, and requested he would not fire. The prisoner exclaimed, " d— n your eyes take that," and 5red. The witness found himself wound* id in the head, neck, and. bade. He fell forward ia the cart. Witness had no previous quarrel with the prisoner; had some conversation wit'i him the Wed- nesday before. There had been some trifling dispute between them on account of the witness having lopt sonic trees which he did not know to be prisoner's pro- perty. This was about the middle of March, and no. thing had passed between them personally on the sub* ject of those trees. C> oss- exa, mined.— Ylt had, some time ago, bor. rowed of prisoner about 200/. for which prisoner call, ed on him rat lie r suddenly. He paid him the money with some expressions of resentment ; but the prison- er would' not take tlxe interest, which amounted to about 31, or 41. Henry Jones, blacksmith, said, that on the morn- ing stated, he met the prisoner near his house, with a blunderbuss in his hand, on foot, accompanied by a boy, his grandson, on horseback. He told the wit- ness the blunderbuss would, not hold the priming, and wished him to put it in order. Witness accompanied him to the forge, where prisoner laid it on a vice- board, and told him to take care of it, as it was load, ed, and on full cock ; he told witness he only want- ed to shoot a dog with it. He then went out, leav- ing the blunderbuss there, and walked up and down the road t il near seven. The prisoner returned, and took away the blunderbuss, and posted himself close to the opposite ditch, under the siiade of an dm tree, which concealed from the view of any person coming from tbe bridge. In a little time afterwards, when Mr. Bunows came over the bridge, and was within a short distance of the prisoner, he raised th- blunder- buss to his shoulder, and ( ired at Him in the manner already described ; on which Mr. Burrows fell n he cart, and his horse ran away with him. The boy dis- mounted, and the prisoner mounted and gallopped off over the bridge, calling to his grandson " n. ver mind! d— n your eyes follow me!" Jane Jones, wife of the last witness, and Mary Ana Bond, eye- witnesses of the transaction, corroborated the foregoing testimony. Win. Sliepp. ird, stable- keeper, knew the prisoner and prosecutor.

Letters from Jamaica, dated May 16, state, that three French privateers have been cruizing ef St. and have captured some vessels bound to Old Spain, and carried them into the Mona Passage, where they were ransomed. The Governor of ft. . Tiero had solicited Admiral Stir- ling tcf- send a British sloop of war to cruize off St. Jago, for the protection of the trade.— The Thalia f igate sailed from Port Royal this morn- ing ( Jdar 16), for Negril Bay, to take under her convoy the homeward- bound fleet. Several ships got under weiph with her.— The Jealmis sloop of war, with the Cork fleet, arrived at Barbados April J6. An astfcie fiofn Naples by the last French papers, dated June 15, says:— Vesuvius, which had been quiet for several years; has suddenly broken out. At nine o'clock on the morning of the 12th, loud reports proceeded from the bosom of the mountain, which Were followed by an eruption of cinders arid smoke. After this the mountain temained quiet for an hour. At eleven o'clock two fresh reports were heard, when the crater vomited forth fire and smoke, which com- pletely covered the horizon. On the 13th and 14- th, the mountain was calm, but at the instant we are writing the volcano is again in action, and its crater is covered with an immense column of smoke. Captain Acres, the pedestrian, finished a won- derful pedestrian undertaking in Somersetshire, on Saturday last. He had matched himself for 3 bet of two hundred guineas, with a Baronet, to perform three hundred miles in four days, viz. at the rate of seventy- five miles a day.

" A MuHDETtF. lt AND WORK LWDDlTSS APPRE- JtFKDEn — At a late hour last night we received highly important and very gratifying intelligence to every friend of peace and good oider. It states that two Tow- street Officers have been in the neighbour* hood of Huddersfield for nearly three weeks past, and that they had been Twisted in, or in other words had taken the oath of the Luddites. By this means they have learned the proceedings and ways of these infatuated persons, and have obtained the knowledge of the depot where arms were concealed. Warrants were yesterday ( Fridav) issued for the apprehen- sion of fifty of the ringleaders, and in the course of the day a great number'of them were taken into custody. The actual murderer of Mr Horsfall was discovered in a house about eight miles from Hud- dersfield, and is committed ro Lancaster Castle to be tried for the said barbarous deed. ' He was seized yesterday morning about two o'clock within the coanty of Lancaster. The Queen's Bays were on duty during the whole of Thursday night and yester- day morning; and the Sco'ch Greys have arrived from Manchester to assist in this business. s " From the whole of this information we are led to believe, that the Secret Committees appointed by Parliament liav? recommended the executive Govern rtent to immediately issue authority tftr the Magis- trates in this Riding, and in the county ef Lancaster* to seize the papers, arms, See. and to apprehend the principals and abettors of those outrages which have so lonjr disturbed so great & share . of the county's peace." In considering the question, how far Catholic jRmanelpat'on rrt > y be compatible with Protestant Security, it is importan' to examine what are ac- tually the tes's upon this subject already given by the Roman Catho'ns of Ireland. For this pur, pose we refer our readers to the Oath taken at pre. sent by Irish Roman Catholic Clergy and Laitv, and particularly to that of S3 Geo. III. called the Act of 1793. The following is an extraft from the ab'ive- mer.' ioned oath, quoted bv Lord Hol- land in his speech in support of Lord Wellesley's motion on Wednesday last" And I do swear, tha- I » iB defend, to the utmost of my power, the settlement a nd arrangement of property in this eou. itry, as tstallhhed ty the laws now in being ; 1 do hereby dis. claim, rii avow and solemnly abjure- any intention to subvert the present Church Establishment, for the pur- pose of substituting a Catholic Establishment in its stead; and I do solemnly swear, that I will not exercise sny privilege to which I am or may become rn- titlcd, to disturb and ivealen the Protestant Religion and Protestant Government in this Kingdom.'

PEACE BETWEEN RUSSIA AND TURKEY. * » » IV « D. MAILS SINCE OUR LA8T. S By DONAGSABEI 2 BT DUBLIN DDI 0 I BELFAST, Saturday, July 1J, 1812, byexpress. At an early hour last night, the London Papers » f Tuesday the 7th, were received by express from Donaghadee, containing the follow ing important articles . of intelligence : London, Tuesday, June 7. THE KING. An express arived at Carlton House, soon af. ter four o'clock yesterday afternoon, with advice, that his Majesty had that morning, soon after his rising, been seized with a violent paroxysm, that he became speechfess, and continued so when thfe Messenger left Windsor. The Prince Regent im- mediately threw himself into his tiavclling chaise-, and drove down to Windsor, from whence he ild r. ot return till a late hour last night. We had An Anholt Mail has arrived this morning with intelligence, which, tn the present state of Europe, must be highly gratifying to every generous mind.— Gpvernment have received advices, that the Turks and Russians have finally concluded a Peace, ar. d 50,000 Turkish troops are now on their march to attack the mercenaries of France on the side of Austria ! The rear of the French army will thus be menaced in a most formidable ' manner ; and if Napoleon advances into Russia, with a combined Swedish and Russian army, acting in concert with an English flotilla on the shores of the Baltic, as has been suggested to our Government by the great Military Leaders now opposed to the French in the North, the discom- fiture and disgrace of his enormous Army may be the consequence. The same Courier who brought the above dis- patches from St. Petersburgh to Orebro, the Swedish Seat of Government, was also the bearer of a communication from his Court to the Rus- sian Minister, M. Von Suchteln, in which he is directed forthwith to settle with Mr. Th'ofnton, our Minister, all the existing differences between Great Britain and Russia, and to intreat, through thatGentlemap, the effective co- operation- of our Cabinet in the desperate effort about to be made for humbling the power of France. We have reason to believe, that a monthly subsidy to Swe- den is * he co- operation alluded to, and that the subject has been repeatedly agitated by Ministers within these few days* A Russian and a Swe- dish agent of high rank, have been in London for these ten days past on this business j and we believe we can state from authority, that Mini, stsrs are now perfectly satisfied with the sincerity of Bernadotte, in his determination to oppose the further conquests of Bonaparte. The Swedish Papers contain the Treity, offen- sive and defensive," concluded between Prussia and France in February last. They mutually agree to support each other per fas aut nefas. It contains the following article on the subjeil of Great Bri. tain:— " Art. 1. Every time that England shall make any attempt upon the rights of commerce, either by declaring in a state tn blockade the coasts of one or other of the contrafling par- ties, or any other disposition contrary to the maritime rights f9Rsecr* ud by the treaty of Utrecht, all the ports and coasts sf the « eid Powers shall be equally interdicted to the ships of neutral nations who suffer the independence of their flag to. IK viol- ited." Of Bonaparte's movements we know nothing since he arrived at Insterburg, in front of Konigs- berg, but we now learn that the Emperor Alex- ander has left Wilna: on the 19th of May his head- quarters were at the Castle of Szjwle, which is eight German miles from Mietau, 20 from Me- mel, and 15 from Riga. This is the place, if we mistake not, where his Majesty took up his resi. dence in ISO?, after the Peace of Tilsit. His Majesty was busily occupied in reviewing his troops who are in the most excellent statu of discipline. The main body is assembled at Semgallen, Win- dau, Dubiza, and Niemen. AMERICA. We have received American Papers to the 1st of June, and they contain intelligence of great im portance, so far as relates to the future relations of the United States with France. The Hornet has arrived in America with the long- expecled dispatches from Mr. Barlow, at Paris} and, as we have long ago. predicted, they are of the most unsatisfactory nature. The French Government refuses all satisfaction for the robberies committed on the Americans, and the repeal of the Berlin and Milan Decrees, as might have been expeiled, has bten c< mfine< J to the Paper upon- which it was written- That the sentiments of the American' w ill now assume a decided aspeift of amky to this country cannot longer be doubted, and we trust that Mr. President Madison and Ms, friends, the admirers of » he system of fraud and extortion which has long been practised by France, will fi nally be worsted in any- stVuggk they m* f make to retain their influence. Tliere has. be. en a mark, nay, a vii uleat hostility displayed against this eiohtrjt, in all that Gentleman's communications-- to'Congress, w hich betray the fnutirifeSfcrti which he has imbibed from an absurd admiratiomnf tFre' Great Napoleon. On former occasions, wh - n he had to ( Complain of the, impressment of an Ameri. fan sailor, or the detention of an American fid)- injjf- briat, he couoled his Message with a demand, opon Congress for warlike measures against Great Britain. : - At the present crisis, whpn he learns from his Minister at Paris, that notwithstanding- the repeal of the Berlin and Milan Decrees, the French oon- tinue to burn, sink, and destroy the property of the Citizens, whose proteftor he ought to be, he lays the communication before Congress withnit a single comment! Nay, we fear that there is even a possibility of an attempt being made at the sug- gestion of the French Ruler, to compel Great Britain to pass from the law of Blockade, and malce restitution of American property captured under the Orders in Council, before America opens her ports to British subjefls. But if such a proposal should be made, we trust it will be met, if not by any instant appeal to arms, at least bv a vi. gorous resumption of all the rights- wlfich oiu ma- tiiime superiority has given us..

We have given the Message this day, and shall as soon as is praflicable, give the documents accompany- ing it. It will be noticed that the President haS not thought proper to express any opinion himself, but leaves it to Congress to form their own, upon the papers submitted.

Correspondence betw- een the French Minister and Mr. Barlow, in which It is evident the Frenchman intended only to- amuse.' him . with promises of a treaty', and never intended any thing decisive should taks. place. " Mr. Barlow's last dispatch is dated 22d. April, in which he informs the French Govern- ment that he is under the necessity of sending the Hornet, home without a treaty, although he had detained her thus, . long under the expeftaiion of concluding one, but that from some expressions in the last dispach from Mri Munroe be does not feel the same anxiety, as he is thereby instruct... ed to blend the subjefl of a Commercial Treaty and indemtiifica'ion for past wrongs. These, he says, are dulj subjefls and drag heavily, he not having it in his power to get even an oral answer to communications on that point, yet the Minister had ini Mined him that something should he done. " NEW- YORK, MAY 30. [ front tit Uat'onal Intel! igcncer tf Tuti/ tpy hit] " It is understood that the Hornet, after so long a delay, has returned without fulfilling " the wishes of Government, or furnishing any satis- factory evidences that tbe French Government sincerely intends to do that justice to the United States which alone cau place the relations of the two countries on an amicable footing. How- ever it may have observed ihe revocation of its Decrees, and thereby fulfilled its pledge, so far as its adversary could derive a pretext from th? m against the United States, its proceedings in. re- spect to our just claims and expectations on other important subjects, are altogether unsatisfactory. " As it is probable, that the public will soon be furnished with the means of forming a correct judgment on the posture of our affairs with that Belligerent; it ir the more Unnecessary to enlarge our vague remarks on the subject, or to antici-. pate the course which the National Councils may judge best adapted to it. The confiscation, at Naples, of several America;! vessels and cargoes,- are name'd, to prove that the French Decrees re- main in full force." It is to be hoped that the Grand Jury of the court- ty of Antrim will, at the approaching assizes, cause the open mill- race in the street of Cat i ickfer^ us to be ; covered in. If the inhabitants of that part of the1 town find it advantageous for getting water, they might i still have that advantage by a proper opening being ' left at a convenient and safe patt; but as it. is at pre- sent, it is extremely, dangerous, and has occasioned many serious - accidents. Some improvement ought also to be Juadt in the two, sharp turus a little faithet on in. the same street, leading into the town from the west. . , k A , " . • On Thursday, a disoosvirm to i; iot tff- as' evi- nced in this, town,.- which, had it no; btfen tim. ly- sup- pressed, - mifrbt have led to- serious- conseq- ience*.

This species of depredation is of all others the mo t mischievous, for it is direflly calculated to produce scarcity ; and tbe misguided people who e ' gage in it should keep in mind, that whatever damage is committed in thi>- way, muct be made S. ood to the suffering individual by a tax on the inhabitants themselves. It is aho perhaps n^ t generally known, that this is nit a bailable offence— in fa< S it is felony, with- out benefit'of cVrgy. • Two ifhen who were active in the mob, Daniel M'CIcrnan aud Thomas Drinle'vater, were taken into custody, and yesterd ty, after undergoing an examination before tie magistrates, were com- mitted to barrack jail.

BELFAST COMMERCIAL C1I RON'CLE To the EDITOR of ll, BELFAST CHRONICLE. R SIR— It is peculiarly honourable to the present generation of professing Christians, that the bene, volent principles of their religion have manifested themselves in a much greater degree than they have dore for several preceding ages. Where is the individual who is fully aware of the intrinsic value of the souls of men, and whose bosom glows with hMy ardour for the extension of the Re- deemer's kingdom in the world, that can look back on the religious efforts of the last few years, without the warmest emotions of pious gratitude ? The endeavours which have been made to instruft ihe ignorant, reform the abandoned, and relieve the distressed, cannot fail to inspire the true dis- ciples of the lovely Jesus with a pure and lively satisfaflion, accompanied with the cheerful hope, that fnure days shall witness still greater exer- tions than these. Among the numerous Institutions, whose in- fluences and beneficial effe& s are now extensively felt and thankfully acknowledged in various parts of the globe, and which deserve our estimation and annual support, the British and Foreign Bible, and the London Missionary Societies, stand in the most prominent point of view. Although the former has existed but seven years, it has furnish- ed the Holy Scriptures to people of various na- tions, from the Brahmin in the East to the Eski- maux Indian in the West, and from the Hotten- tot in the South to the Polander in the north •, and lately the half- frozen Laplander has received the New Testament in his vernacular tongue. In Britain and Ireland, its benign influence has been 110 less conspicuous. Notwithstanding the oppo- sition it has met with from many, it has, by Di- vine assistance, increased in strength and magni- tude; and under the most respeftable patronage, has been aflively engaged in supplying the spiri. tual wants of the poor, by a liberal distribution of the Scriptures of truth in their respetfive neigh. bourhood « . - The latter, or London Missionary Society, whose sole objeft is to send Missionaries, duly qualified, to preach the glad tidings of salvation jo the Heathen, was instituted prior to the former. Formed in the year 1793, on the broad basis of Christian philanthropy, it can boast of having among its most strenuous supporters, men re markable for genuine piety and extensive learn- ing, out of every denomination of Christians in Great Britain. By its direflion, missions have be « n sent to the frozen shores of Greenland, and to the burning sands of Africa ; and faithful men, at this moment, are devoting their lives to the ser- vice ol Christ and precious souls, on the Western as well as on the Eastern continent; among the wretched Hottentots, and in the most remote islands of the great Pacific Ocean. Great as has been the efforts of this Society, yet a vast field is • till open before them for missionary exertions j but from the inadequacy of their funds to enable them to engage and support missions, their labours must necessarily be limited.— To enable them, therefore, to extend their usefulness, the Society have thought proper to send to this country one of their most respeftable members, the Rev. Mr. Waugh, of London, to solicit contributions in aid of their funds; and the Reverend Gentleman is now making a tour, for the above purpose, through the enlightened and opulent province of Ulster. In appealing to the liberality of Irishmen, the Society thick, that tbey may confidently e* pe4t the strenuous co- operation of the Ministers of the Gospel, fspeci : lly those of the Presbyterian Church. They also cherish the animated hope, that the affinent of the Society in general, will discover that promptness of generous zeal which may enable them to progressive! enlarge their sphere o missionary exerti ns. Indeed, Sir, we who profess " to be on the Lord's side," should not be content without using vigorous endeavours to accomplish this desirable objea. To assist in such an enterprize is honourable and laudable. There are few of us who have not wept ovjr the miseries of the poor African slaves : they once appealed to our humanity and justice, and were heard and liberated. But what are all the chains which avarice can forge, compared with the bon- dage of the immortal soul ? Can we hear the clanking of the chains of Barbarism, Idolatry, and Mahomedism, without assisting in spreading the fame of Him who opens the prison doors to them that are bound ? Let us then, instead of wasting our wealth in the pursuit of pleasure, in luxury, and the expensive decorations of the table or the person, lend it to the Lord, by contributing otar mite to the funds of the Missionary Society, so that they may be enabled to send more faithful labourers into the seat of the false prophet, where Satar. hitherto hath ereCted the pillars of his throne, and reigns with uncontrolled dominion. I am, Sir, & c. July 6, 1812. OMICRON. Tt tbe EDITOR of tbe BEI. FA S T CHRONICL H. " You may put it on record that I am a culprit; but you must rot previously invite evidence from myself that may substantiate it." SIR— Your very excellent Paper, No. 1,153, is now before me, and I am certain your impar- ; tiality, as in every other case, will induce. you to communicate to the public a few observations from me on a stibjeft in that Number, under the | head " GENERAL SYNOD OF ULSTER." After stating the place and time of meeting! the said subject runs thus;— On referring to the Synod's Minutes of 1799, " it was unanimously resolved, that by the phrase ' implicated in treasan- ahle or seditious practicesthe Synod did not mean to express any thing more than that Dr. Dickson and Mr. Smith, two of the persons therein alluded to, had been confined by Government under sus- picion of treason and sedition, and that this Synod now a'taches no other meaning to that expression, and if that expression has been otherwise tinder- stood or applied, the meaning of the Synod has faeeri misconceived," & c. tec. Now, Sir, I beg leave, through you, to ask the Synod's Reverend Secretary, if, by the above- re- cited paragraph, it is meant to declare, that the General Synod of Ulster hath an exclusive patent for using irrelevant phrases, or that if at any sede- runt in any Anno Domini, by chance make use of a phrase which it doth not competently understand, has it of course a right to pass a declaratory law, laying the common sense of the Province of Ulster under embargo, and ordering all manner ot men to understand its irrelevant phrases exaCtly in the same manner as the Synod itself, dotb. Had the Reverend Secretary given himself the trouble to consult Johnson, he would have found that the verb " implicate," means to entangle, to embarrass, to involve, to infold, '" and that it is de- rived from the Latin implico, which OVID uses thus " implicuitque suos circum mea calla 1a- certos." The angry manifesto of the Synod against Dr. Dickson, seems to me to arise from his " under, standing, or applying" that expression ! contrary to the meaning of that there Synod in 1799; and this here Synod io 1812. I have the greatest re- speCt for the General Synod of Ulster, of \ vhich I am peradveBture an unworthy member ; but really I am sorry that its Secretary should write in its name a fretful, peevish, surly- looking ma- nifesto; and state, that because Dr. D ck on hath not understood or applied the phrase implicated, &. C. according to Synodical direction, he hath been guilty of a libel on that Reverend Body, & c. & c. But the worst of all is, that you Sir, and I, if we do not understand this same phrase, according to Synodical direction, may be implicated, Sec, Sec. and bring down upon our heads the vindication of Dr. Black, for which he bath been so zealously, and no doubt cordially, thanked by this here Synpd. Had Dr. Dickson stated, " that of late years, for some purpose or other, the Synod held its meetings in an obscure village at a mountain foot in the county of Tyrone ; that the majority there- of was composed of herring- fishers, from Done- gall, See. That all tbe old, respectable, and per- j haps infirm Members thereof, living to the East- i ward of Loughneagh, did not attend its meetings, | held so far out of the way, & c. Sec. This, Mr. ! Editor, wsuld have been a libel on the General Synod, and would have most justly called forth j the display of " zeal and ability," for which this here Synod has so " heartily" showered its thanks on the head of Dr. Black. I see that the Synod hath requested Dr. Black to publish a narrative of his speech on this new and memorable aera. From the " zeal and ability" exhibited by this i able advocate— when commander of a volunteer : corps— with which ( like a Tartar village) he ; moved about from public meeting to public : meeting, haranguing in favour af liberty, equal- ity, & c. & c. I have no doubt of his complying with the aforesaid request; and therefore reserve my fire until I bring it to bear upon the TACTS which he may state. I am, Sir, your obedient Servant, AN ELDER. SINGULAR FRUGALITY. To tii EDITOR of tbc BELFAST CHRONICLE. Kirbcubbin, July 9/ 4, I81J. SIR— Being a constant reader of your very en- tertaining Paper, curiosity prompts me to beg the insertion of a very extraordinary, I might add, unprecedented aCt of frugality, which is now » bout to be completed in this town: An old man, about eighty years of age, has for eighteen or twenty years past, been so careful in saving the croppings of his hair, as at i* ngth to procure a sufficiency, to make for himself, a pair of stocl/ nyt. The yarn, is, already sopn, ijnd rf dvf- r knotting. In colour they will be . most beautifully variegated/ j » t the age when lie first b° » in to save th • hair for them, it was almost a complete black, and now ir is turned as completely grey. It is in weight eighteen ounces. And to render the cir- cumstance still more curious, he intends knit'ing then* himself: I was but yesterday ta king to him • concerning the publication of them, when he ap- peared perfectly satisfied by saying, " If A hae ; naething that's great or grand to mak me be re membered when A'm awa, A'il hae sometbin that's curious." Sir, if you think this circumstance worth pub- lishing, the insertion of it in your Paper, will very much oblige your obedient humble seiv. mt, J. B. BRISTOL ELECTION. SATURDAY, JULY 4.— At the usual hour this morning the Candidates took the'r stations, that is to say, Mr. Davis on the Bench with the Dons, and Mr. Hunt upon the table, where he stalks about; and being his own attorney, scrutinizes etvery thing and e « ery body. If a tradesman of rhe highest respeCtabilitv presented himself to poll, Mr. H. says to him, Pray, Sir, are you a pau- per ?— Do you receive parish pay ?— Have you taken all the seven oaths?— Do you hold a place under Government?"—- And all this being answer ed in tha negative, r^ he' doubts are started, which have no objeCt but delay. Sometimes be meets with his match— but he is proof against all that can be said. He flips his fingers at Mr. Davis, snaps up the Sheriffs, and conducts himself in the most insulting' manner possible. By accident a well- dressed young woman, attracted by her curio- sity, was seated amongst the other party. Mr. Hunt took advantage of it, insisted that lis female friends might also be allowed to see the ferr— left the Hall and returned with three women of the lowest description, picked up in the street, calling out " room for the ladies," and placed them near him ; one of them was a mere poissardc, and had headed one of his mobs. He told the people, in his opening speech, that he had made some of the blue money fly, and tnat a good deal more should follow ; though, added h", " after all,' it is mere ragged paper, \ Vhich Davis, being a banker, can make for three- pence, and call it a pound!" He says, he was only tick/ kg the adversary to- day, but that en Monday he will astonish them. This day he polled only 9, W. pavis 130. Making the to- tal numbers: Davis. 1230 Hunt 178 Majority 1052 Co'obett is still in nomination, but no one re- ceives votes for him, and therefore his name ap- pears with an 0 at the end of it. When the poll closed Mr. Hunt; addressed his partizans in his usual style, and ended with say- ing—" I have been confined for so long— I will now stretch myself a bit in accompanying you to Clifton, that I may take a peep at Mr. Richard Hart Davis's fine house." Immediately tire rab- ble shouted applause, and Mr. Httnt set off at the head of his Lazaroni. But Mr. Gabriel Goldney and Mr. Blake Devrcll, two Magistrates, aided by some other gant'eme Vivid a party cf constables, being apprized of the march of this banditti, lay in wait, and when they were probably about to re- new the scene of the otheT evening, rushed upon them. Sorpe stones and a bludgeon were thrown ; but Captain Adair, a resident, seized the fellow who was the, most riotous, and another gentle- man struck down a second, both. of whom were immediately sent to prison. This spirited be- haviour cowed the mob, and they retired ; their leaders did not interfere, neither did the soldiers shew themselves at all. Our streets are at pre- sent free from actual riot; but groupes of com- mon fellows are every where talking, and oc- casionally shouting, " Hunt for ever !" It is now a policy pursued by the Blties not to allow their men to appear in tbe evening after the poll is epded, and it is only l\ ere and there that a flaming blue cockade is to be seen, but when seen, if it does not produce hostilities, there is sure to be a hissing or a shout of execration. As to Hunt's own people, 49 out of 50 k. VSe not a shilling to buy a ribbon, and consequently there aie few fa- vours; but they wear printed cards in lieu of them. Troops are quartered in all the places likely to get attacked. One hundred men, with a complement of Officers, of the East Middlesex, occupy- the Guildhall ( that is the Hustings) at this instant, but before the poll commences on Monday, they will be withdrawn, and occupy it again when the polling is over and all the people gone. The soldiery behave remarkably well, they are not at all- insulted, and not a single hurt of the slightest description has a soldier or volunteer given to any one person whatsoever. Mr. Davis has offered 100/. tor the discovery of the fellow who carried the flag when his house was attacked the other evm- iin!.-, but he is as yet unknown. SUNDAY, THREE VCLOCK.— All is quiet, and probably will continue so all day. SHIP NEWS, EXTRA.

Remain as in our last.— The Dictator, Captain Gr— nv— lie, went into dock to have her bottom looked at, and her head scraped and new painted. Tbe Norfolk, three- decker, unfit as a flag ship, to carry blue at the main, is cutting down for a hulk. The Demi- Catholic, Capt. C— nn— g, is ordered to be lengthened and new ruddered, if her timbers are found stout enough for a first- rate. The Re- volulionnaire, Capt. Rom— ly, drifted last night athwart- hawse of the Prison tender, drove her a- shore, when all the convicts escaped up the coun- try ! The Double- dealer, Capt. T— rn— y, having j earned away her false keel, by running foul of the Prince, is hauled on the hard, and her copper hav- ing also been disturbed, her plank is now to be closely examined, and if found rotten, as expeCled, j she will be broke up. The Uxorious, Capt. Hoi- j 1— d, has dropped down to ilfofier- bank. The ! Leveller, Capt. B— rd— tt, took fire in her powder- room, from trying some combustible stink- pots, and hand- grenades on a new principle ; but was got under by the jolly- boat crew of the Britannia, who keep a constant watch under her stern. The Samuel Victualler, Capt. Whit——- d, has made a An account of the celebrated Guerilla Leader ,, ir. a, has lately been given, by Don Lorenzo Ximenes, who was one of a party of Spanish pri- soners, consisting of 21 officers and 800 privates, whom this extraordinary man, rescued rrttrly on the frontiers of France, after killing and dispersing the escort that conducted them. The following extraCls will perhaps not be unacceptable lo our Readers:— " We were rvfifrched from Vittoria under a sruard of 1600 infantry and 20ft cavalry. We had not proceeded two leagues, when we observed two woods on right and left of tbe high road between Mfndragon and Vitroria. On approaching them we heard a musket fired, and immediately a dread- ful shower of balls poured like hail on b "> th flanks and on our rear. The killed and wounded covered the ground, and the- French inviucibles were so horror- struck, that they could neither maintain order nor make any resistance. They had not even the opportunity of seeing their enemy, as the Guerillas were concealed amidst bushes and the branches of trees which they had climbed, and from which they direCled their deadly fire. The undaunted Mina, followed by 150 horsemen, at length advanced upon our rear, and bore down every thing before him. In the mean time we flew under a heavy fire to our friends and de- liverers. After the slaughter was over, I had the satisfaction to see Mina, and to converse with him. He ordered us to be safely conducted to Zaldo- endo, six leagues from the scene of this aCtion, The whole treasure and property under convoy, amounting in value to a million of dollars, fell into his hands. About 800 of the tnvincibles were laid low, and 150, with their Colonel, Lafitte, and eight other officers, were made prisoners. " Among the followers of Mina, there was a countryman who brought with him four blunder- buss barrels fixed in one stock, and so constructed as to turn upon a single pivot, which he fastens by a chain to the ground. Into each barrel he put 32 balls, and fired the four at once. One discharge from his artillery passed through four coaches, and killed all the officers and women in them. " A spy, who had.. givenxnformation o. f the de- stination bf this Convoy to France, of the day is was' to set oil ', the strength of the escort, tbe nnm-, ber of prisoners, and other particulars, was, by Mi- na's order, placed at a distance in the wood, with his- hands bound, and guarded by a centinel, who had orders to shoot him jf he attempted to escape. After the a& iOn, which lasted full five hours, he called the spy before him, and said—' You are a good fellow— you have not deceived me— you may go, and here are 6000 hard dollars for your reward.' " It ought to be mentioned, that about a league and a half from Vittoria, we passed through a vil- lage in which all the houses were shutJtp, and not a living being was to be seen. This was the work of Mina, who, when he had resolved to lie in am- bush for u=, entered the village the evening before, and carried off the inhabitants. He ordered the old and the young men, women and childrj- ri, all into the market- place, fastened them togt her two and two, and conveyed them under a guard to the neighbouring mountains. He informed them, that if they spoke or made the least noise they would be instantly put to death, but at the same time promised, that if they made no opposition, they should In eight hours be safely restored to their homes; Thus it was impossible for the French to lelirn any thing of his plan. " Mina is a stout made man, of a ruddy com- plexion, about five feet eight in height. He is frank in his demeanor, though he speaks little, and he is extremely aCtive. He detests loose wo- men, and permits none to accompany cither Offi- cers _ or soldiers. He is abbut twenty- three, and is extremely abstemious. He sleeps only two hours each night, and has constantly loaded pis- tols in his girdle. He is very reserved respecting his plans, and his Officers seldom know whither they are to march. " When a young man wishes to enlist in the cavalry, Mina fir9t examines him, and then call- ing the Commander of the Infantry, he says, " This young man is desirous of serving in the cavalry, take him, in the first place, into y « ur ' corps, and tell me how he behaves himself.-" In the first action that occurs, the Commander of the Infantry, who is on horseback, places the young man near him, and narrowly watches his coiiduct. He is observed, in ths same manner, during four successive actions, and if he behaves courageously in them all, the Captain takes him to Mina, and says, " This lad does well, he de- serves to die for his country." Mina then gives him arms and a horse, and thus his little corps is composed of the most undaunted and enterptis- ing men that can be found." MiSCELLAN KOIJS: Violation of his Parole by General Phillippin.— It is now about three months since General Letebvre broke his Parole. We were not prepared to ex- pect so speedy a similar violation of honour on the part of another French General Officer.— Phillippon, the late Governor of B. adajoz, who surrendered to the Earl of Wellington, on the- 6: h of April, and was sent by Government on parole to Oswestry, contrived to quit that town Wed- nesday last, accompanied by aa Officer of Artil- lery of the name of Gamier. It has not yet been ascertained whither these disgraceful fugitives l ave gone. We are gin . I to learn that Govern- ment has adopted every necessary nre? auti-'. n. to prevent their escape from this country; full de- scriptions of their persons having be- n sent last night to all the out- ports, and to other p'aces where there is any probability of detecting them: and strict orders have been issued for the careful examination r. f every suspicious person who may- be found near the coast. The Artillery Officer who accompanies Phillippon is said to speak pretty good English, whence' it is conjectured th at he has probably assumed the appearance and character of a friend acting as an interpreter— Philliopon himself is a tall man, being nearly sir feet high, of a stout frame, with a fair coitv plexion, and having a scar over his left eve.— The baseness of so many French Officers in the e repeated violations of the laws of civilized war- fare, seems to render it indispensible on the part of our Government, to abridge the accommoda- tions which have been so liberally given to these' persons, and to watch them with a degree of strictness that may put the farther repetition of such transgressions out of their power. The severest penalties of the law must f; jll on tlu\ se | wretches who are found to lend their unnatural assistance to the escape of enemies, whose cap- ture has been achieved by the valour and blooj of their gallant countrymen. The Court Martial, which was assembled at Portsmouth on Monday last, to inquire into the charges exhibited against Captain Sir J. A. Wovf, of the Pompee, and Captain Campbell, of ihe Tre- mendous, in not bringing to aMio. i the squadron which soma time ago escaped from I/ Orient, ter- minated on Friday ; when the Court delivered the following sentence: « the Court are of opinion that Sir J. A. Wood ; blame- able for having tacked 5t 6b. < IOm. on the afternoon trf th. r 10th March, from the enemy, before he had ascertained that the enemy had tacked and stood towards him; for not hav- ing ti- cited to the northward again in pursuit of the enemv, when flashes of guns, and false lights were seen to wind- ward, where the Tremendous and Poictiers afterw rds ap- peared ro be, and for not having ma< ie an aurwer to thosa signals; and for rot having reconnoitrred the three s'lipi which were reported to have beea seen on the following morning; but it appearing that he had aifted from erroneous impressions entertained by him, the Court acquitted him of any want of z- al for the goorl of his Majesty's service. Tfi » Court are of opinion, that no blame was imputable to Cap- tain B. Campbell, and did fully acquit him." A Coroner's Inquisition was taken on Monday last, at Osburnby, near Falkingham, on the body of a man named Thomas Page. The deceased was a pauper belonging to the parish of Silk Wil- loughby, but not chasing to stity in the work- house, he was in the habit of strolling about from town to town, subsisting upon tbe provision which he begged. It was his custom to deposit what he procured in this way beyond the immediate crav- ings of nature, within his shirt, next to his body y and having a considerable store of meat and bread so placed, he, in the early part of the preceding week, it is supposed, feeling unwell, l. dd him self down in a field in the parish of Scredington, tr » sleep. The meat, from the heat of ilie weather and of the man's body, soon becoming putrid, was struck by flies ; and in a short time tbe nuirgots so occasioned, not only preyed upon the- inanimate pieces of flesh, but began literally to consume tbe iivin^ substance. When discovered or, Tl » irs„ day, hundreds of maggots had penetrated deeply into his body. He was conveyed to Osburnby, and a surgeon was immediately procured, who dressed the parts affefled ; but the sufferer died : n a few hours after. The Jury returned a verdift that the deceased was— Eaten to death by maggots. ALGERINE OUTRAGE.— An Algerine squadron, consisting of two frigates, two sloops, and two brigs, has been for some time past cru'ijing in the Mediterranean. On the 27' h of April, the Haughty gun- brig, Lieut. Harvey, proceeding with a convoy tor Malta, fell in with it, when the Algerine Commodore, after examining the ships, ordered the detention of a Greek vessel laden with corn. On this order being notified to Lieu- tenant Harvey, he immediately went on board the Algerine, accompanied by his surgeon, as in- terpreter, to remonstrate against this unfriendly act, and to request the liberation of the vessel.—. Instead, however, of his request being complied with, he received the most gross and abusive lan- guage i his own ship was threatened to be seiz- ed ; and on refusing to deliver up some papers belonging to the Greek vessel, he was knocked down, repeatedly kicked, and his pockets rifled. He was instantly obliged to depart, without ob- taining the release of the vessel, and proceeded to Cagliari. A representation of the affair has been made to Sir E. Pellew, but there was no I probability of redress being obtained from these ruffians. GALVANISM.— In a late debate in the House cf Commons, it was asserted, that porter tasted bet- ter out of a pewter- vessel than any other, which occasioned a smile among some of the Members- PrOfessor Davy has explained this on galvanic principles. This peculiarity arises from pewter being formed ot dissimilar morals, which are known to commuicate the influence of the gal- vanic fluid. Water has also a di'Tercnt taste in a pewter- vessel from what it has in glass or earthen* ware. Volta, found that if a' cup made of tin, or what is still better, zinc, be filled with water and placed upon a silver stand, and the point of the tongue applied to the water, it is found tjui: e insipid, till we lay hold of the silver support with the hand well moistened, when a very distinct and strong acid taste will be perceived. From the same cause, Professor Robinson found that, snuff taken from a box of tin plate, which has been long in use, so that the tin coating has be*. i, removed in many places, is extremely different from that of snuff taken from a new box, or one- lined with tin foil. STRANQB VICISSITUDE OF HUMAN AFFAIRS—- Robert Hepburn Ker, who, by a late decision in the House of Peers, was found entitled to th-> Dukedom of Roxburgh, and £ 100,000 sterling in the funds, was some years ago a pauper in the city of Kingston, Jamaica, and died there in 1808, in the hospital, and was buried at the ex- pence of the parish.
