COUNTY OF CLARE CATHOLIC MEETING. EVKIK, SATURDAY, JOVE 18. The Catholic Meeting took pl » ce this day ; it was one of the most numerous and respectable we have ever witnessed. The Courtihoiise Iming- considered too small, the Meeting was adjourned to the Chapel. A number of Protestants of the first respectability attended, an I the galleries were crowded with female h? luty. At one o'clock, D- ini^ O'Connell, of Kilgory, j Esq. was called to the Chairt James O'Gorman, Esq. rove ' o prooose a series of Resolutions, which had bet'n prepared by the Bf> ard of Catholics ot' the county of Clare. He prefaced them in a short and very appropriate spe^ h— he principally insisted upon the necessity of vigour and unanimity at the present period, when the enemies of the Catholics continued in possession of alt the power of Government in this country. It was doubly necessary, inasmuch as recent experience had demonstrated how anxious those persons' were to pervert, even the plainest wrtrds in the English language, to serve the pur- poses of persecution. Mr. O'Gorman concluded, by moving the Resolutions, amidst the apphuse of the Meeting. The Resolutions were then put from the Chair, seriatim, and carried unanimously. 1 ' pon the question being put on the Resolution, pledging the Catholic Freeholders to resist the pretensions of any Candidate, for the Representa- tion of the County, who should refuse to pledgt? himself to resist any Administration, hostile to Religious Liberty, , T > hn M'Namara, E q. ( the Secretary to the Meeting, and son to Mr. M'Namara of Dublin) begged leave to say a few words. He said he felt it to be his duty to lay before them the letters which had been written by the Members for the County, and the avowed Candidate* to succeed therV), in reply to a communication of the Resobi- tions of the last Meeting of the Catholics of Clare ; the first was from Sir Edward O'Brien, Bart It merely contained an admission of the receipt of the Resoluiions, and was his humble servant— Edw. O Brien. It had the merit of being short, but it was also nearly contumacious— Sir Edward wis irt the habit of saying little— probably because h « had not much to say— his speeches in the H . use were confined to the monosyllables, Yea, or Niy, and the use of them had been quite at the disposal of the Perceval and Castlereagh Ad- ministrations, upon every other subjeft save the Catholic Question.— Sir Edward had considered hisgreat deserts as slighted under the Grenville and Fox Administration, and had given lhat as his rea- son for joining the liberal and patriotic P rcevil; he boasted too, of bis being determined not to accept of any office or emolument himself, but then, he made no scruple of obtaining them for hit family. He g » t for his services to Mr Per. eeval, a place of from £ 500 or £ 800 a year for hit brother, and it surely was a matter of great indifference to the Catholics of the Count? of Clare, whether he received these £ 500 or JCSOO a year himself, or they were pocketed by his bro- ther. He gave, indeed, his vote for the Catholic Claims, but this was a mere delusion, whilst he continued to support every Minister who may be pledged not to permit that measure to be carried. The Catholics ought not to be duped by such con- tlufl— they saw a man reinforce the squadrons nf their enemy, and they heard htm say he was their friend. It was not possible to place confidence in such empty professions, against the evidence of the adh 1E> r his part, it had been his resolution to vote for Sir Edward, and he told him so. Now he would teil him, that his co. idutf had decide I him to do direflly the reverse, and to vote against him. Sir Edward was quite consistent in voting against the Sinecure Place Abolition Bill. If a corrupting Ministry were deprived of those places, Sir Edward would naturally have the less to ex- pect for his family and friends. He was also quite consistent in voting as he had done, with the Minister, and against Patliamentary Reform — for if the Parliament was reformed, what would become of Sir Edward's controul over the rotten borough in that very town of Ennis, ivhich enabled him to traffic and barter for the representation of her County, by conceding a seat for the borotlgh to a wealthy family, and thereby secur- ing their support; and also blessing the nation with the return to Parliament of that patriotic youth, with a place of jffl200 per annum, Mr. William Fitzgerald, the eldest sOn of the Ex- Prime Serjeant. The next letter he would read was from Colo, nel Fitzgerald— it was directly the reverse of Sir Edward's, and of that of the new Candidate, Lord James O'Brien, and of Colonel Burton's. Colonel Fit/. gerald wrote in pi tin, manl/, and dignified language. He attended to the voice of his Constituents, and he had obeyed them— he voted against Sinecures— against Parliamentary Corruption, and against every profligate measure of the Administration. Mr. M'Namara said, he hoped the Catholics of the county of Clare, would have the patriotism to bring Colonel Filzgerald forward again, and return him, free of expense ; he said, that by doing so, they would immorta- lize their zeal and gratitude, and shew that they were worthy to be called Irishmen. The next letter he read was from Col. Burton : he profes- sed to be a friend to the Catholics, but strongly disapproved of their Resolution against the sup- porters of Administration— This ( said Mr. M'Namara), is our worthy Governor- General of Canada. Why, how could he become Governor of Canada, and stay at home receiving the salary, if he were to vote against the Minister ? It he was a Patriot, he would not be a Governor— and j so the thing is easily accounted for. The last letter is from Lord James O'Brien— it ' is long, dull, and prosing, and of courts concur % i with Colonel Burton. He was not surprised at the S'yle it is written in, when he reflefled that it pro- hibly was composed by the brother- in- law of Lor 1 Jame<, and the most persevering and inve- terate enemy the Catholics of Ireland h ive— he meant the Attorney- General, Mr. Wm. Saurin— that Gentleman was likely. to infuse a portion of his hostility to the Catholics into Lord James's mind, btr he believed there was nor the least danger of his being returned for that County.— He should therefore say no more in reply to Lord James's opinions, than that they were quite natural n the brother- in- law of the Attorney- General. Richard Creagh, of Dangan, Esq. a Protestant Gentleman of great respectability, then addressed the Chair, in a short, and very heat speech he said, he always was, and always would be, the decided advocate of extending the full benefit of the Consijtijtion to his friends and countrymen, the Irish Catholics ; he felt that they were entitled to it, as well from the most cogent motives of po- licy, as uoon the grounds of eternal justice and right. He said, that he very highly approved of the principle upon which the Catholics rested their claims, naijiely, those of universal toleration, and perfeft religious freedom—' hose were principles dear to his heart, and which he hoped to see soon quite triumphant. Indeed, the opposition to them daily lessened, and he was sure the Protestants of England would soon follow the example set to them by the Protestants of Ireland, and banish for ever the imputation of intolerance from those colli)- ries. At the same time Mr. Creagh must say, that he felt it his duty to declare, he conceived that Mr. M'Namara was quite out of order in the at- tack he had made oil his respefted friend, Sir Ed- ward O'Brien. Thecondufl or views of Sir Ed- ward -. vere quite foreign to the question before them ; and it really struck him to be a wanton and unnecessary introdtiflion, of a man who had uni. formly supported the Catholic Claims in and out of Parliament. ' Mr. M'Namara, in reply, vindicated his tight, as a freeholder of the County of Clare, to canvass the public condufl of the Member for the connty. The Resolution was then carried unanimously. Counsellor O'Girrnan then, in a very able speech, replete with talent and eloquence, suggest- ed the propriety of a distinft Resolution, approving of the Resolutions of the late Aggregate Meeting in Dublin. This was opposed by Mr. James O'Gorman, principally upon the ground that any such Reso- lution was unnecessary and improper, after the con- fidence expressed in their Resolutions. But after an animated discourse from Counsellor O'Conoeil, Mr. James O'Gorman declared Mmself fully con- vinced, and withdrew his opposition. Counsellor O'Gormail's Resolution then passed unanimously; and Thanks being voted to the Chairman, the Meeting broke up. WATERFORD CATHOLIC MEETING, On Sunday, the lf) th inst. a very numerous and truly respectable Meeting of the Catholics of this Connty and City was held, pursuant to no- tice. At two o'clock, the crowd was so great that no apartment in the Hotel could accommo- date them, and an adjournment took place to the Great Assembly- Room, in the New Buildings, on the Mall. At half- past two the Chair was taken, on the general call of the assembly, by a Gentleman, distinguished for his patriotism, his loyalty, and his bravery— Captain Power, of Ballydine. It was a Meeting that will be long remembered, as exhibiting a striking and gratifying feature of the " New iEra."— The Catholic Gentlemen were very numerous and highly respectable, both as to property and ho- nour. The Protestants, includirfg Military Gen- tlemen, and members of the Learned Professions, were as much distinguished for rank and conse- quence in the County and City, as for numbers and patriotism. The following Resolutions were proposed by William Barron, of Carrickbarron, Esq. and se- conded by Richard Power, of Mahon Lodge, Esq. and unanimously adopted: — Resolved— That we do again Petition the Le- gislature for the Repeal of those laws which affect our body, convinced as we are, that such is the immortal principle for which we contend, and such the perishable nature of those prejudices with which we have to contend, that discussion alone must insure success. Resolved— That we do adopt the Petition agreed upon at the last Aggregate Meeting of the Catholics of Ireland, and that the same be signed as the Petition of the Catholics of the County and City of Waterford. Resolved— That the Duke of Devonshire be requested to present our Petition to the House of Lords, and Sir John Newport, and Ridiard Power, of Clashmore, Esq. to the Commons. Resolved— That our most cordial Tin ks are hereby given to the above Noblemen and Gentles men for their uniform support of our claims. Resolved— That we owe to the Government of the Country, every satisfaction and pledge of Loyalty which can be reasonably demanded— that the Catholics of Ireland had given these pledges in the fullest and most unequivocal man- ner possible— that we have taken 0< tths of Alle- giance the most comprehensive, and adequate for tlie security of our loyalty, that human ingenuity could devise— that one of these oaths has been framed by the most inveterate of oiir enemies— that, if our oaths are believed, as we have a right to demand ( since they are the only barrier be' tweeh us and every privilege under the British Constitution), we cannot conceive that further security can be required. Resolved— That our most cordial Thanks be given lo our Protestant Countrymen for their generous support of our Claims. To their exer- tions we attribu' 3 die great progress of our cause —- to their exertions we would wish to owe its final success; We have but one common interest, and that interest must be the peace and prosperity of our native land— With them we seek to be incor- porated, persuaded as we are, that Irishmen, when united by ties of affection, must be invincible. Resolved— That the Thanks of the Catholics of the County and City of Waterford are emin- ently due, and hereby giv h and 19 h of this month, and advanced from Fnente Sahuco, in this direc tion on the 20th. I formed the Allied Army, with the exce- tion of the troops employed against the Forts of Salamanca, on the heights which ex- tend from the vicinity of Vilhares to Muorisco— our advanced posHs of cavalry and infantry fell back in good order, without having suffered any loss to signify. The enemy remained during the night of the 20th and day of the 21st in our front, having established, during the night of the 20th a post on our right flank, the possession of which, if left to him, might deprive us of some advan. ta? es which eventually might be of importance. I therefore desired I. ieiitenant- General Sir Tho. mas Gi aham to attack that post on the 22d, with the troops of the right wing; which he accord ingly did with the 7th division, under the orders of Major- Generals Hope and Bernewitz. The enemy was immediately driven from the ground, after having suffered some loss. Our tr- ops be- haved admirably well in the affair, which took place in sight of both armies. The enemy retired during the night, and on the following evening took post with his right on the heights near Caheza Velloza, and his left in Huerta, 011 the former ; the centre in Aldea Rubia. His objefl in this movement was to open a communi- cation with the forts of Salamanca. I therefore changed the front of the army, posting the right at Santa Martha, and the advance at Aldea Leu- gura. I sent Major, General Rock's division of heavy cavalry to the other side of the Tormes, to ob- serve the passages of that river— The enemy cross- ed the river on the 24th with infantry, cavalryf and artillery, in considerable force, and appeared to intend a general movement in that direction.. General Bock's dragoons behaved admirably well on this occasion, they made every effort to make us acquainted with the enemy's movement, and in spite of many disadvantages under which they la- boured, opposed his advance with the utmost vi- gor, to give us time to make the necessary dispo- sitions. As soon as I had ascertained that the enemy had crossed the Tormes, I desired Sir Thomas Graham to pass it also, with the 1st and 7th divisions, and ordered to the same point Major General Le Mar- chant's brigade of Cavalry— I concentrated the rest of the army— keeping, however, the advanced posts in Aldea Lengura. About mid- day the ene. my advanced as far as Calvaraza de Abaxo, but seeing the dipositions that were made to meet him, he retraced his steps, repassed the Tormes, at Huerta, and has since remained in the position he occupied on the 23d. The progress in the siege of the forts has not been so rapid as I had reason to expefl when I last wrote to you. Though from the labour and expense wit ich the enemy had gone to in their con- struction, I was prepaid to encounter some diffi. culties, and had therefore provided what I thought adequate means, I find those difficulties to be of a more formidable nature than I imagined. The fortf, thr, ee in number, support each other, and though not constructed regularly, are nevertheless extremely strong. The' means which I had pro vided for their reduction not being sufficient, I shall order up some more powerful. We have made breaches in the Convent of St. Vincent, one of the principal works of the enemy ; b'ut it' ' cannot be stormed until we get possession of Fort Caetano. he attack failed, and I regret to sta'e that Ma jor- General Bowes, whose zeal induced him to ad- vance with the storming party, was killed, after being wounded in the beginning of the affair— he returned to the attack after his wound was dressed, where he was a second time mortally wounded. Our loss of officers and men on this occasion was considerable. General Hill informs me, under date the 22.}, that General Drouet had received considerable reinforcements from Andalusia, after the defeat of Ball- asteros at Bornos, in the beginning of the tha month, and that he had advanced as far as Almendralejo and Villafranca, upon which Gen. Hill had concentrated his forces. I find that Ballasteros suffered considerably in the aCtion at Bornos, and I hear that he has re- treated to the neighbourhood of Gibraltar. In the North, General Santocilde- s, under the orders of Captain General Castanos, has invested Astorga, with the army of Gallicia. I b:- lieve he will experience no interruption in his attack. The Guerillas are in quiet possession of all parts of the country, and the. weak and divided garri- sons of the enemy are cut off from all communi- cation with each otlier.

" On the 29th, the army put itself in march against the sneaky, who observing our movement} commenced retreatiag. « On the 29th, the head- quarters of the Great Lord were'at Fuente Lapenha, and Marmont continued to retreat. " It is thought Marmont will abandon the positions of Toro and Zamora, and collect his forces at Valladolid. "• A report has reached us by different chan- nels, that Joseph Bonaparte, after many difficul- ties, had collected 12,000 men and abandoned Madrid to join Marmont. Six hundred and forty- four French prisoners were expected to arrive at Almeida, on the 2d and 3d of July, amongst whom- was the Town- j major of Salamanca." . By accounts from Cadiz, it appears that Bon net had retired to Santander. On the morning of the 2d July, General Hill quitted his entrenched camp at Albuera to face the enemy, a » d on the 3d his infantry were in St. Martha, and the cavalry still farther in advance. EXTTACT or A LETTER EROM LISBON, DATED THE SIXTH INSTANT. " No battle has taken place— Marmont, it is said, after joining Bonnet's division from the As- turias ( making his force 50,000) has move'd up- on Avila, to cover Madrid, and we are anxiously looking forward to Lord Wellington's future movements, of which no one seems adequate to form an idea." DESTRUCTION, OF AN ENEMY'S CONVOY. Gibraltar, June 20. His Majesty's ships Undaunted, Blossom, and Volontaire, have taken and destroyed a French convoy of 20 sail in the Biy of Marseilles. A large national schooner, which escorted them, and 13 of the convoy, were burrtt; the others were cut off, arid sent for Port Mahon. The couvoy were all coasters.—( Statesman.)

These convjflions took place, chiefly through the. evidence of Joseph Wolfindon, an approver, by whose means a dan- gerous and Systematic de- ail of depredation was brought to light, which shall be detailed in our next. ARMAGH ASSIZES. ( In cmtinuation from our Last.) Tjfvbms Robinson was. indicted under Lord El- lenborough's - act, for firing a pistol at Bryan Cullen on 13th of July inst. at Armagh, with intent to mur- der him ; and also for a riot. Bryan Cullen was the first witness examined ; says he is a blacksmith to trade ; works in Thomas- street, Armagh ; about five or six o'clock, on the eveningof 13th inst. as he was leaning over his employer's half door, he saw. prisoner passing along with great num- bers ; after passing a few yards, prisyner turned round, his colour changed, and he, fired a pistol directed at witness ; is certain the pistol was loaded, as dust fell from the wall within four feet of witness ; had known prisoner for ten years, and he knew witness ;• prisoner was with .. a,, great number of Orangemen, . who had co- lours and ; » drum as usual. On1 12th July, had seen prisoner. with a crowd, who huzzaed at witness in pas- sing, when he said he would beat ever a man in the crowd. Cross- examined.— Had given no offence to any one before prisoner'lired ; he In- atd that a soldier had turned prisoner's hand, but did not see it; he - never said the pistol ' was fired at odiers, nor did fie ask the women if it hit th< m. WITNESSES IN BR- ENCE. Hugh Drum was in the street on 13th inst. but was not with the Ora'ngefnen'•; saw a man raise his hand with a pistol in it, and throw off a soldier's hat in doing so ; he fired in the air, and not at Cullen ; soon after Cullen came into the street, and asked some women who . were looking out of a window, if that hit them ; the man who lired had passed Ste- phenson's shop near 20 yards before the pistol was j fired. Edward saw the pistol fired, but does not think it WHS fired at Stephenson's house ; if charged, it must have hit O'Callaghaii's gable ; did not know prisoner. Thomas Johnston, Esq. lives in Thomas- street, saw the pistol fired ; the person who filed had passed Stephenson's above 20 yards'} the shot was fired up- waids ; if it had been fired at Stephenson's, it must have hit many persons before it reached the wall ; the person who fired did not stop any time ; saw persons hurt by the opposite party on Sunday ; does not be- lieve that any person was wounded by Orangemen. on Suriday; dots hot believe the Orangemen beat any Roman Catholic on . Sunday ; they wouid not attack any person unless first attacked — it is not their prin- ciples to do'so. John ' M'Can lives with Callaghan, next door to Stephenson; he heard the shot and saw the smoke, but did not see the pistol lited ; went out and saw ij some marks of a new impression on Callaghan's wall. Rev. Wni. Ball, has known prisoner for 10 years, a- nd never, heatd any. thing to his disadvantage, but was a peaceable man ; observed some' disgraceful conduct on Sunday, and believes, prisoner was endea- vouring to prevent it; he never heard of a riot in Ar- magh, but it was asked if some of the Cullens wete not concerned.— Cross- examined : He has heard that prisoner was dismissed from. a yeomanry coips. Ther Jury'retired for a few minutes, and acquitted the prisoner of. all the charges. The COMMISSION at DOWNPATRICK will be open on Wednesday Morning at Nine o'Clock, the Grand Jury then sworn, and the Civil and Criminal business immediately proceeded on. It is said that there is a schism in the opposit on, and corisiderable surprise has been expressed that Earl Grey did not remain in town to support Lord Hol- land's motion relative, to Informations Ex^ fjitiia— Is it true that his Lordship, upou h- ing applied to for that purpose, positively declined ? Mr. Ponspnby, it is added, retires from the opposition lead in the House of Commons.— Courier.' • We regret to find that owing to the reserve oft' e Russian and Swedish cabinets, our relations of amity | tnd commerce, with those Poweis are not so com- pletely established as to authorise a public avowal of them. The perilous situation in which they wi'l be placed, should ' Bonaparte succeed in the war he is now waging, must excite a wish that an arrangement had been earlier agreed upon between the three powei s, for co- operation in the B iltic.

As Captain Wright was at f tea with some British Officers at their- qu trten E three shells fell on the barrack, which being bomb, proof, sustained no greater injury than a smart concussion. Provisions are stated to be cheap in Cadiz. American produce is in such plenty, that, for want of storage, it is frequently piled in the streets.— The people have lately shewn great apathy in the commoa- cause, and have even given unequivocal proofs of the jealousy with which they view their British allies. The Portuguese are re- presented as much more steady. The English are in great numbers in Cadiz, almost as great as the Spaniards themselves, which may b - One cause of their unaccountable jealousy.—( Water' ford Mirror.) The inhabitants of Blagdon w't iesscd a re. markable phenomenon on Saturday se'nnieht; about 4- o'clock, I'.

A Regiment of Portuguese Cavalry ( the lj; h Cacadores, we believe), we are sorrv to learn, has been cut to pieces, but they sold their liv^ s most dearly. A great number of prisoners weie ' taken from the French on their retreat. E irl Wellington has left a strong force at Salamanca, in order to keep up a communication with P irtu- gal. The intelligence from all parts of Spain- was gratifying in the extreme. The Patriots mid Guerilla parties, w. ere busily employed as usual, in intercepting the numerous convoys which are daily setting out for France. A statement has been submitted to the consi. deration of the inhabitants of Staffordshire, re- commending to all persons to avoid, as far as pos- sible, giving oats, grain, or potatoes, to horses, pigs, poultry, or other stock," and to use the stridest caution to prevent all waste of food in their respective families, more especially in the articles of fl uir and potatoes, substituting in their, stead, rice, garden- stuff, or other kinds of food, and thereby facilitating to the public in general, as much as in them lies, the supply of the mist essentia! articles. It is siijnod by Lords Talbot, Anson, G. L. Gnwer, the Bishop of Litchfield, See. and a long list of Gentlemen of rank and fortune. On Tuesday se'nnight, a fisherman's wife, en gaged in digging for bait in the basin of Mm" trose, burst a blood- vessel in her head, and expir- ed on the spot. * " Jussum Pacha, who marched a short time since from Egypt with a formidable force to drive the Wahabees from Mecca, and was defeated by them in consequence of his troops being struck with a panic, has since taken refuge in Jaiiibo, on tl), e borders of the Red S - a, where that barbarous, but warlike people, were preparing 10 besiege him by sea and land. By the Eolus, which is arrived in the l> rvns, letters have been rec ived from New. South Walt* to the 23d of November. We stated, in a former number, that three gentlemen ( Melsrs. Briuail, Wentwor'h, and Riley), had undertaken to build an hospital at Port Pack^ on, without i » ny expence. to government, on condition that an exclusive pri- vilege should be granted them to import, for the consumption of the colonists, 45,000 gallons of spirits, in three years. This monopoly, as appears by the letters, has excited great discontf, and been prej « dicial to the interests of the inhabitants at large. Several veseU had arrived laden with Ja- maica rum ; but, owing to the monopoly, and their refusal to take the contraftors' price ( 7s. per gallon) had departed to find inotber mtiiket- The contractor's retail price is from- 25-. to 30s. per gallop. Some discontents, we hear, have also ari ea among the privates of the 73i regiment, on ac- count ofthe bad quality of the bread— on one or two occasions they had proceeded so far as to throw their rations about the streets, and post pla- card's against the Governor's residence. The following note, in the " Statement of the Penal Laws," affefting Roman Catholics, is, we jl understand, the passage self,' led for a Ciiitiltial Information against Mr. Fitzpatrick, on which subject Mr. Sheridan has given notice of a motion in tlie Home of Commons', for last Monday " At the Summer Ass zes of Kilkenny, 1810, one B: irry, was convicted of a capital offence, fur which he wis after- wards vxecuted. This man's case was truly tragical. He was wholly innacent— wa. s a respectable Catholic farmer in the county of Waterford, in good circumstances.- Hs inno- cence was clearly estalil shed in the interval between his, conviClion and execution.—- Yet he was handed—- publicly avowing his innocence !!! There were some shoe ing cir- cumstances attending this case, which the Dulte of Ricli-, mood's Administration may yet be invited to explain to fc*- r J liamellt." 4 It is with pleasure we observe, that the prices i f meal are declining in all the neighbouring max- kels; and we have also the pleasure to announce that thtee cargoes are daily expefled here, and, others at different ports in this neighboui hood. We are rejoiced to find from a c - rresi- onrU'o1 in the neighbourhood of Banbridge, that the Mm Market in that town on Monday the 2() h, exti rienced a considerable fall, owing to the timel introduction of potatoes and other vegetables, bjf some ofthe neighbouring gentlemen.— Goodniej sold at 40s. per cwt.

A manufsflory of great value lately took fire, in Lrndon, in consequence of the overflowing of a gutter on son1!* unslacked lime, which had been laid on a floor against a boarded partition. The fire was providentially discovered in time to be got under, without doing great damage ; but this occurrence will tend to account for fires which frequently happen withoat any known cause. 60 great was the scarcity of forage in the neigh- bourhood of Quebec, in May, that the inhabitants 1 had resorted to the miserable expedient of taking ihe thatch off their barns to give to their cattle, to prevent them from perishing. Hay was 38 dollars for 100 bundles, weighing 16 lbs. each. The French General Phillipon is supposed to be still oa the coast, secreted. The vigilant ex- ertions that have been made, has effected the ap- prehension of several other French prisoners who had absconded from parole. The three lately ta- ken concealed at Folksrone, by Lieutenant Blow, cf the Impress Set vice, are still remaining in custody at Dover. Pi e engines are attached to every corps in the French service in Poland.

Witness took bold of Edward Finlay and MiChael Slavin and detained them, having heard they were concerned; hid conversation in the course of- that day with Clarkin and the other prisoners after the time that Marks had spoken to them. But here the Counsel for the prisoners again objected to this wit- ness giving any evidence of sucli conversations, for the reason that they b » - ing had subsequent to the hopes held out by Mark, must be considered as being giver. under influence of those hopes.— The Judge consi- dered the objection as availing, and Gray's ex iniin t- tion clos" d.— Here ended evidence for prosecution.

There is n Bill now in progress through Par- liament, for the better securing the Duties on Malt.— The preamble sets forth as follows: Whereas it- has been found that the existing regulations are insufficient to protect the Revenue arising from Malt, and that various frauds are " practised in. . respect thereof; the Bill, therefore, enacts, that Maltsters shall so construct their cist- erns, that tlie'Officers may have free a.? ee$ s to two opposite sides, and, if of certain dimensions, to provide a ladder and plank to enable the Officers to guage every part of them. If any Maltster, or maker pf Malt, shall neglect to construct tho cisterns for wetting or steeping of Grain, accord..- ing to the'manner and form directed by the Act,' or to provide the ladder and plank before men-. - tinned, he shall, for each, and every such. offence, forfeit a sum, to be fixed in rhe Committee on the Bill. The Bill also provides, that Maltsters are not to empty their cisterns more than once in four day. s; and that they shall euipty at the same time all their cisterns, having com in steep, at the same time. With respect to the floors, it enacts, that Malt- sters shall not have more than five flpyxi oCM. ilt arising from the same cistern, In their Mal'- houser, at the same time. The Bill further provides, that ' Maltsters are to lay the floors of Corn in succes- sion according to seniority, under a penalty, to be subsequently fixed. A penalty is also to attach to Maltsters, if any- increase be found either- im the floor or on the kiln, exceeding the rate of 17 bushels for evary 10 bushels of the best cistern or couch guage..— The Corn is to be laid even on the kiln by Malt- sters, in stich regular form, as may enable the Ol- ' ficers of Excise to guage the same under a penalty not yet stated. ' rhe Bill next provides, that Maltsters shall riot mix corn of different wettings, either oa the floor or on the kiln, or if they so offend, shall be for each such oiience subject to a penalty. A fine is also to be imposed on Maltsters for removing Malt from the kiln before it is completely dry, or for assaulting, opposing, mqjesting, obstruct- ing, or hindering any Officer or Officers in the due execution of this Act. The Bill then enacts, that all fines, penalties, • and forfeitures imposed by this Act, shall be sued fpr, recovered, levied, or mitigated by such ways, means, or, methods, as anyone, penalty, or for- feiture may be sued for, recovered, levic- d, or ' mi- tigated, by any law or laws of Excise, or by anv action of debt, bill, plaint, or information, in any of his Majesty's Courts of Record at Westminster, or in the Court of Exchequer in Scotland, re- spectively ; and that one moiety of such fine, penalty, or forfeiture, shall be to his Majesty, his heirs, and successors, and the other moiety to him, hfer, or them, who shall inform, discover, or sue for the same— Another clause has reference to the 152th of Charles II. and extends the. powers of that and other Excise Acts to this Act, and tlie last clause provides for the commencement of the Act on a day not yet named.

Copy of a Letter from Vice- Admiral Sir JAMES SAU- MAREZ, Bart and K. B. to JOHN WILSON CROKER, I Esq. dated on hoard his Majesiy's ship Victory, Wingo I Sound, July 8, 1* 12. Ji SIR— I have the highest satisfa/ LKM in transmit- ; ting to you, to be lard before the Lords Commis. sinners of ihe Admiralty, the enclosed letter which ; I have this day received from Captain Stewart, of j his Majesty's ship Dictator, detailing '. lie particu- j lars of a most gallant exploit perfumed by him j and the two sloops and the gun- br'g named in the ' margin*, upon the Danish friij/' te Nayaden, three I large sloops of w » . nume'. ous gim boats, with- ! in th<" rocks of Marclt, » . ne coast of Norway, I supported by batteries QT{ tj, g shtre; in which the • enemy's frigate has r, wn totally destroyed, and the sloops of waf completely di; S% d, besides several of the gu' .. boats sunt. It is impossi' for me to express in an adequate manner the Undaunted spirit displayed by Captain Stewart, intj aH the officers and men under bjs orders- in this arduous enterprise, which I am sure'' j will be duly appreciated by their Lordships. Captain Stewart speaks in the stronc st terms of the gallantry and zeal of Cap'ain Robilliard, of the Podargus, and Captain Weir, of the Ca- lypso, and Lieutenant Th . mas England, com- manding the Flamer gun- brig also of Lieuten- ant William Buchanan, First of the Dictator. Herewith is also transmitted, the list of the ere- my's force, with tne returns of tbe killed and wounded on hoard his Majesty's ships— I liave the honour to be, ( Signed) JAMES SAUMAREZ. His Majesty's ship Diibtor, in the Sleeve, July 7, 1812. Sn— I havi: the honour to inform yoti, that yesterday evening, being ofF Mardoe with the brigs named in the margin f. mast- heads of the enemy's squadron were seen over the rocks ; and Captain Rnbilliard, of the Podargus, in rhe mn< t handsome manner, volunteered to lead the squadron in to attack them, he having a man on b. iard acquainted with the place ; and as neither the masters or the pilots of either of the ships con- ceived themselves equal to the charge, I did not hesitate to accept his kind offer, well knowing that the British flag would meet with nothing but Iiononr in such hands. In the entrance of the passage the Pod- trgus unfortunately took the gra- siid; by which circum- stance I was deprived of the valuable and gallant services of her Commander during the remainder < f the day, and was, in consequence, obliged to h- ave the FUmer to her assistance ; but in Captain Weir, of the Calypso, I found every thing that tould be wished for, which, in a great measure, made up for the l" ss which I had sustained in the Podargus and Flamer. By this time, half- past seven r. M. WE had arrived within one mile of the enemy, who were running inside the rocks under a press of sail; the Calypso, which had also ground- ed for a short time, was now leading us through the passage, and both she and onr-. elves engaged with the squadron and numerous gun- boats— However, at half- past nine, I had the satisfaction, after sailing twelve miles through a passage, in some plac? s scarcely wide enough to admit of our studd ng sail booms being out, of running'the Dilator's bow upon the land with her b road si o towards the enemy ( within hail) as per margin J, who were anchored with springs on theii cables, close together, and supported by gun- boats, in the small creek of Lyngoe, the Calypso roost nobly following us up. In half an hour the frigate was literally hatter, ed to atoms, and the flames bursting forth from ker hatchways; the brigs had also struck, and most of the gun- boats were completely beatei> and some. sunk. The atfion had scarcely ceased, and the ship s> float, than we found r. urselves again attacked by the gun boats which had retreated on seeing the fate of their squadron, and tv « re again collecting from all quarters; but Captain V'eir, of the Calypso, having taken a most advantage- ous position, engaged them with the greatest gal- lantry and effetf ; indeed I am at 3 loss how to express my approbation of the prompt exertion of this gallant and meritorious Officer. The I'odargus and 1' lamer, in tne meantime, were warmly engaged with numerous batteries i and gun boats, both brigs being aground ; but j bv the uncommon exertion and extreme gallantry j of Captain Robilliard, and the officers and crews of the brigs, they at last got afloat very much cut up : on this occasion Lieut. England particu- larly distinguished himself. Atfthree A. M. having got the Dictator, Calyp- so; - and prize brigs in the fair way, we attempted to get out through the passages, when we were assailed bv a division of gun- boats from behind the rocks, so situated that not a gun could be brought to bear on them from either vessel ; in this situation both prize brigs grounAed. and not- withstanding every exertion on the part of Lieut. James Wilkie, of this ship, in the Laaland, who had extinguished a fire on board her which was burning with great fury, and Lieut. Hooper, of the Calypso, iu the Kiel, we had to abandon them complete wrecks, humanity forbidding our setting them on fire, owing to the number of wounded men they had on board. I cannot conclude this letter without mention- ing in terms of praise Mr.|\" Villiam Buchanan, the First Lieut, of this ship, a most gallant aud ex- cellent Officer. From the nature oi" the attack, I have been ob- liged to lengthen my report, probably more than the service performed justifies, but in that case, I trust you will only attribute it to my anxiety to endeavour to do justice to a set " of Officers and men, who, I am sure, have done their duty to ad- miration.

Copy of a Letter from Captain Ross, of his Majesty's Sloop Briseis, addressed to Rear Admiral MARTIN, and trans- mitted by Vice Admiral Sir JAMES SAUMAREZ to JOHN WILSON CROKEI, E « q. His Majesty's Sloop Briseis, off Pillav, June 29. SIR— I have the honour to inform you, that, in pursuance of your orders, I stood in yesferday to communicate with the merchant vessel Urania, in Pillau R « ads, when I perceived her to be in pos. session of the Frenth troops, and that it was in- tended to destroyed her on our approach ; I tack- ed and stood off, judging it the most likely way to save the ship ( which was employed by Messrs. Su'. ly and Son on the part of Government) from destruction, and the remainder of her cargo from failing into hands of the enemy, to surprise her in. the night. Lieutenant Thomas Jone* ( 2d) First of *! ie Briseis; Mr. Palmer, midshipman, and eighteen men, were sent in the pinnace on that service at midnight; when within pistol- shot, they were . hailed and fired upot by the enemy, who had six guns and four swivels on board the Urania, which was surrounded by craft and boats; but every obstacle was oirercome by the gallantry cf Lieutenant Jones and his crew, who gave three cheers, boarded over the craft, and drove the ene- my off deck into their boats on the opposite side, leaving behind part of their arms; the cable wus then cut, and she was brought out, together with a French scout that was employed unloading her. On our side 1 have to regret the loss oi one seaman ( J - n Cooper) k lied ; Jaseo Cook, se>- jeant of royal marines, badir ; Mr. Palmer, mid- shipman, and one seaman ( Robt. Starkins) slight- ly wounded; but the enemv must have suffered far m re severely, from being exnosed, in their turri, to the fire from the Urania afcer they had abandoned her,— I am, & c.

Justice Fox and the following Petit Jury :— Andrew Moorhead, Wm. Smith, Walter Bell, John Mitchel, Alexander Thompson, James M'birnie, George Stewart, Thomas Blair, John Johnston, John Sloan, Francis Campbell, Alexander M'Fadden. hugh Gault— An Apothecary and Surgeon, at- tended Robert Hughes at a house on tbe road side n< » r ' Ballibay.. on Sunday . morning the last day of MSy last ; Hughes had several bad wounds when witness was introduced to him— one wound on the head, one 011 the aim, and one on the side. Hughes was speechless'r. t the timeV- lived a short while; wit- ness opened his head, it was much fractured, and must have been done by a heavy blunt instrument. Has 110 doubt Hughes died of the wounds he received'; be- sides the wound in the head, the collar bone, the shoulder bone, and the principal bone ot the left aim, were broken. Henry M'Cabe, was acquainted with Robert HugheS deceased. He met his death on Saturday the last market day of Ballybay, in the latter end of May. Witness saw him first at Robert Dixon's in . Ballybay on that evening. Witness and Hughes left Dix- on's in Older to go towards home together ; as they passed by m'Naghtin's ( publican) which was in thei. way, they called in there. It was 9 o'clock when they first met; it was between 9 and 10 o'clock that they stopped at Dixon's. Hughes, the decea- sed, was paymaster Serjeant in Mr. Roper's yeomanry corps ; he was dressed in his yeomanry uniform that night. At M'Naghtin's house, Hughes was going into a room wanting a glass. M'Naghtin's wife pre- vented him, saying, he bad nons of his company in that room. She refused to give the deceased and witness any drink. Hughes and M'Naghtin's wife had some further conversation near the door of the 100111 into which he had wanted to go. Heard voi- ces in that room ; the persons might have heard and seen, and he believes did hear and see witness and Hughes. The witness and deceased went from M'Naghtin's house towaids Aghnamullan ; there was not ; « uy pei son with them, but they were soon over- taken a few perches beyond the bridge, near B llybay, by Jauies Slavin ami Edward' Finlay. James Slavin welcomed Serjeant Hughes ( the deceased,) home from Armagh. He asked Hughes, was he as strong in the Protestant religion as he used to be ? Hughes said he was, and would die so. James Slavin replied, he could beat ever a Protestant that was on the road. Witness said these were foolish expressions to pass upon the road at such a time of night, and advised Slavin and Edward Finlay to walk on about their bu- siness. Witness is a Roman Catholic. They pas- sed forward a little space, but did not go above 24- perches, when Michael Clarkin and Michael Finlay, also coming from Ballybay, likewise overtook witness and deceased. Clarkin, as he came up to witness's left hand, looked close into witness's face. Hughes was then at witness's right hand. Clarkin said what, dont you like a Papist, Henry ? Witness replied, good night, friend— I believe it is not a Papist you want. Witness, and the two Finlays, and Clarkin, and Slavin, and Hughes, had been all previously well acquainted. Witness cautioned the party not to med- dle with any person in his company, or they would be sorry. Upon witness saying this, Clarkin, the pri- soner, knocked witness down, but he does not know with what. At this time of the assault all the four persons weie about witness and Hughes. When he got up, the foui men were gone and the deceased re- mained. Witness was much stunned, and Hughes helped him up. Hughes had nothing but a light stick or cale stock in his hands. After witness was knocked down he was so stunned that he could not perceive what abuse the deceased met at that time. Witness and deceased proceeded across the hill 011 the road to the old school- house, which is about 100 perches iVuni the place where witness hud been knock- ed down Mi ihat*! Clarkin and F: nl- rv were starrd- ing up against at ditch on the road side under shade of a bush ; the pl.- fce where they were lying in wait was within about L'f} perches of the school- house • they did rtot perceive Clarkin and Michael Fiolay. w. ho were thus concealed, till tliey came within about three yards of tliem. Hu- jhes, the deceased, was on wit- ness's ri ' ht hand, between witness and the place- where said men wvre lying. Hughes'called out. Boys are you waiting again for OS,; the sa'd last two mentioned men made- no r.' ply, but rushed forth and separated Serjeant H- ighcs and witness on the road ; rhey staggered witness- to one side, and took Hughes away about 20 yards off ro tiie side of the road near the ditch, knocked Jiim down, and layed on him with some weapon which appeared, like a bar of iron, or the barrel of a gun. It was the prisoner Clarkin who hid that weapon in his hand ; as soon as the. persons who had abused Hughes had gone off, and that wit- ness recovered himself, lie called to an acquaintance who was coming- u|> behind him on the road to assist him and Hughfj, and not allow them to be murder- ed. Witness saw Clarkin and Michael Finlay fly off, otv: went clown the road, and the other got over the ditch on the road side ; he found Hughes sense- less ; his face was ail bloody ; witness wiped the blood off his face and tried to prevail on him to speak, but in vain, he was speechless ; he never spoke afterwards, a. good deal ol blood was flowing from his wounds. • Witness took deceased into the house of one Wal- wood, which was on the road side, near at hand.— Doctor Gaulr was procured as speedily as poss> u. ® ; to deceased, who languished . for about 2£ hours, ancl died. Frank Biyans was the name of the person whom he had just before called on to assist him and Hughes. Bryans did assist witness in carrying de- ceased to Walwood's hbuse.

If he said'beforejlhe magistrate that it was positively a stone,*' he swore different from, the' rgd, fact, but did not mean to do. so, and, said that lie was much confused and through- other on that morning with fright and grief. Was examined before the. Re'v! Henry Roper, anil the coroner, and narnec} th<- per- sons as he has this day naih'e'd fllelST" Prisoners' were taken before the inquest was held. Witness was nut as well acquainted with Clarkin as with the other pri- soners, because lie is'ofte'ner from home than the othrfrs. Witness had taken some drink in flit market of Ball- y- bay, hut not much. Hughes and he drank no spirits, but merely " some small quantity, of beer. Neither wit- ness nor Hughes were the least intoxicated.; they could walk or run either, and, they got occasion enough to run that evening. Catharine M'Naghtin lives with her husband in Ballybay; keeps a huxtry;, sometimes giv « s drink in her house to her husband's friends ; knew Michael Clarkin, James Slavin, and the two Finlays ; identi- fies the three prisoners as being Slavin, Clarkin, and one of the Finlays. They ' with the other Finlay were in witness's hpuse that evening, Knows M'- Cabe, the last witness and knew . the deceased ; they also came to witness's house ; they wonted drink, which she refused them,, not having any for sale.— Hughes and M'Cabe Said they would get it some where else, and they walked " off. The conversation between witness ancl M'Cabe and the deceased was irt their usual tones, of voice.- The prisoners and' t'he other Finlay went away - together, some time after Hughes and M'Cabe had gone q- way., ,. r Michael M'Caffray, black- smith, lives'at Ballybay\ recollects the market day in Ballybay, on 30th May last ; points out Michael Clarkin at the bar. Prison- er called on witness on that dav, and left with him a crow bar to have it Welded. Prisoner , shortly after- wards called bick and paid for welding it. He then went away and returned in tile evening wanting the crow iron to take it aWayf Witness sent his boy- with him to the foi'^ e to get the crow iron. Did not see Clarkin afterwards on that evening ; the crow iron Was not, in the forge the next morning; it had been taken away. The crow iron was now produced to witness, who believes it to be the same as the one left with him by Clai kin ; the iron produced is weld- ed in the middle. John Owens, a yeoman, was one of the party who took, Clarkin, the prisoner, on the Sunday morning upon which the deceased died.; Clarkin was standing in his shirt on the floor of the room, in which were two beds. After they had brought the prisoner some distance, Witness thought, it would be right, and therefore sent a party back to look in the house for the crow bar. Moses Cherry, he was another of the party who took the prisoner Clarkin, at his uncle's house; after they had taken Clarkin and came away some distance, witness and others were sent back to said house to search fot the crow bar; they found it in the loonr where prisoner had been apprehended, concealed un- per one of the beds. The crow iron wait produced to hi in ; identifies it as the same found by him in Clarkin's room. William Mark, Serjeant in the Monaghan militia, was one of the party who guarded Claikin in the guard house of Ballybay, on the morning when he was taken ; had some conversation with the prisoner on the subject of Hughe's murder. Here the wit- ness was stopped in his examination, owing lo his re- plying to a question put by the prisoners Counsel, that he had held out hopes to prisoner if lie would confess his crime and turn King's evidence.
