" HHE PART NKRS H IF subsisting between SAMUEL GIB- I SON, JOHN BENN, & ROBERT GAMBLE, of Belfast, and the late THOMAS M'KIBBIN, of Portaferry, in the MALTING and BREWING TRADE, under the firm of SAMUEL GIBSON & CO. Will be dissolved on the first day of October next. SIXTH BULT- KI'IN1 > I> r' 1' 5 G IANT9 AllXV, WILN'A, JULY 11, 1S12.— The King of Niples con- inues to follow the enemy's rear- guard. On the j • 5th, lie met the enemy's cavalry in a position upon i the Dziana." He caiis d it to be charged by the bri- gade oflight cav dry comnnndei by Baron Su tier- vie. The Prussian regiments, the Wit'tembergers and Poles, which firm a part of the brigade, charged with great intrepidity.— They overturned a line of , Russian dragoons an I hussar?, ami took 200 pri- soners, with their horses. When they arrived on the Other tide of the Dzianna, they brolce down the bridges, and shewed a disposition to defend the passage of the river. Gen. M mtbrun then brought up his live battalions of light infantry, which durin ; several hours carried 1 - struction into the ranks tif the enemy. The loss of the Russians was considerable. Count Sebastiani arrived on the same day at Vid- z » ni, whence the Emperor of Russia had deputed on the preceding evening. Our advanced guard is upon the Dwir. a. Count Nansouty was, sn 5th July, at Postavoili. In order to pass the Dziaria, he pro- ceeded miles farther on the right of the King of Naples, Gen. of Erig. Rousse!, with the 9th Po- lish light cavalry, and the 2d Piussian hussars, passed the riser, overthrew six Russian squadrons, sabred a great number, and took 4.5 prisoners,' with several officers. Gen. Nansouty took 130 Russian mounted hussars and dragoons prisoners. On the Sd July the communication was opened between Grodno and Wil- na, by Lida. The Hetman Platoff, with 6000 Cos- sacks, when driven out of Grodno, moved towards Lida, and found there the French posts. lie de- scended to Ivie on the 5th. Count Giouchy occu- pied Witch new, Traboni, and Soubotnicki. Baron Pajol was at Perchia; Baron Borde Soult was at Blakchtcni; the Prince of Eckmuhl was in advance of Bobrowitski, puohhg heads of columns in every directian. PJatofF retreated precipitately on 6th, to Nikolpew. Piince Bagration having set out the beginning of July from Wolkowisk on his route for Wilna, was intercepted in his march. He turned back with a view to reach Minsk: anticipated there by the Prince of Eckmuhl, he gave up his intention of proceeding towards the Dwina, ar. d moved towards the Bqris- thenes, by Bobruisk, across the marshes of Beresina. The FN nee of Eckmuhl entered Minsk on the *> th. Ij He found there magazines of ilour, hay, clothing, See. Bagration had already arrived at Novoi- Swor- gtew: perceiving that he was anticipated, he sent or- ders to burn the magazines; but the Prince of Eck- muhl did not give time for effecting these orders.— The King of Westphalia was on the Cth at Nouo- grodesk; Gen. Regnier at Xonina : magazines, bag- gage waggons, quantities of medicines, and straggling parties, fall into our hands every instant. The Rus- sian divisions are straying ir, these countries without any previously arranged route, pursued on every'side, losing their baggage, burning their magr. r. ioes, de- ! s.- royir. g their artillery, and leaving their places with- | out defence. Ba ron Colbert took at Vileika, a magazine of 500 J quintals of flour; 100,000 rations of bread, See- He found also at Vileika a chest containing 200,000 francs, in copper money. All these advansages have scarcely cost the French army a man. Since the opening of ^ he campaign there have been about 30 killed in all the corps, about 100 wounded, and 10 ' pri soners: whilst \ ic hats taken from 2000 to 2500 Russians prisoners. The Prince of Scwartzenberg passed the, Bug at Droghitschin, pursued the enemy, and has taken many baggage carts. The Prince of Scwartzenberg praises the reception he has met with from the inhabitants, and the patriotism which animates these countries. Thus, ten days after opening the campaign, our ad- vanced posts are upon the Dwina. Almost the whole of Lithuania, contaisiir, g four millions of inhabitants, has been conquered. The operations of the war com menced at the passage of the Vistula. The projects of the Emperor v/ ere from that time plainly unfolded, and he had no time to lose in carrying them into exe- > cution. Thus, the army has been making forced 1 marches from the period of passing that river, in or- der to advance by means of manomvres upon the Dwina ; for the distance between the Vistula and the Dwioa is greater than that between the Dwina and Mosiere or Peteisburgh. The Russians appear to be concentrating them- selves on Dunaburgh : they give out itis their in- tention to wait for us, and to give us battle before we enter their ancient provinces, after having abandoned Poland without a contest, as if they were- constrained by justice, ar. d had wished to restore a country badly acquired, in as much as it had not been gained by trea- ties, or by the right of conquest. The hea; continues to be very violent. The peep'e in Poland are in motion on all sides.— The white eagle is hoisted evei y where. Priests, no- bles, peasants, women, all call for the independence of their nation. The peasants are extremely jealous of ; the happiness of the peasants of the Grand Duchy, who are free; for whatever . nay be said to the con- trary, liberty is considered by the Lithuanians ao the greatest blessing. The peasants e:: press themselves v- ith a variety of elocution, which would not seem to belong to the climates of the north and all embrace with transport, the hope that the result of the strug- gle will be the re- establishment of their liberty.— ; The peasants of the Grand Duchy have gained by | their liberty, not that they are richer, but that ths ! proprietor;, are obliged to be moderate, just, and hu- mane 5 because otherwise the peasants would quit heir lands in order to seek better proprietors. Thus, the noble loses nothing; he is only obliged to be just, and the peasant gains much. It must be * an agreeable gra tification to the heart of the Emperor, to witners, in crossing the Grand Duchy, the transports 1 of joy and gratitude which the blessings of liberty 1 J granted to four millions of men, has elicited. Six regiments of infiritry ait just ordered to be raised by a new levy in Lithuania, and four regiments : of Ci- vuhy have been olfered by the nobility. POSEN, JULY 11.

BELFAST CJMAgWCIAL CHRONICLE. FRENCH PAPERS. ( In continuation from first page.) POSENT, . TUT. Y ] 1 — Different corps of out troops are continually passing- throuph our city on their • way to the Grand Army. Yesterday, the Saxon regimpnt of " low" infantry arrived here; one part cf it was quartered Tn the citv, and the rest in the villages in the environs. Within the last three months, from the ] st of April to the 30th of June, our citv has had quartered u on it, seven Marshals, 73 Generals, 416 Officers on the Staff. 364- 2 Officers, 89,613 Sub- officers and Privates, and 10.902 horses. WILNM, JULY 15.— We still enjoy the presence of his Majesty, who rides out every dav, attended bv a very few persons. The day before yester- day his Majesty gave audience to the Polish De- puties. the Senators Warvedon, Wibiski, Wladis- Jaus, Count . Tarousky, & c. They had fven com- missioned bv the General Confederation of Poland to bear their homage to his Majestv. They were prpsented bv his Excellency the Duke of B issanO, Mincer of Foreign Affairs. . The President « f the Deputation, tbe Senator Warvedon Wybiski, was spokesman. The answer of his Majesty was couched in the most gracious terms. The same dav, the 11th, some inhabitants of the Duchy of Samogitia, M. M. Bilwuz, Bralosewo, . Tellemsky, a" d other Officers, having at their head, the old Marshal of the Court of Z'etgna. had the honour of being admitted to his Majesty's presence ; they assu. red h'ro how much the Samogitians wish to partake in tbe honour enjoyed bv their brethren at Wilna. His Majestv conversed with them on all matters relating to the interests of their coun- try. Our city has nevrjieen so brilliant as it has been for the last 15 days. Tbe. greatest of all Sovereigns- is resident within its walls, within which are also assembled the principal citizens of our country. A youthful, and impetuous race have arranged themselves under the Polish Eagles ; it is here pro. per to mention the names of those zealous children of Lithuania who were the first to take arms and ennip themselves at their own expence. In the guard of honour we find Prince Op- inski, its chief; Count Plater, M. M. Pils- udski, Briot Bemco. Ro. mer, Cklewiski, ( here follow several other Polish names.) In the Lithuanian Guard, commanded by the Brip- adier Konophill, we find. M. M. Ma- gelonski, Nat- but, and Micbalowisk, completely equipped. A great number of young persons are busily employed equiopips- themselves. We have r. o donhr but that the Lithuanians will > eek op- portunities to distinguish themselves as the gallanl fellows of the regirpent, commanded by Count Knadiii'ki, did at Som, Sierra, and Benevente. The Bishop of Korakowski hsw- tlad the honour of • being twice- brought to Court, to say iM'- s ir> the Imperial Chapel. He received'a diamond ring a1; a present. The Priests who accompanied him bad also presents. • • ' The grand, national festival was celebrated Iiere yesterday with universal'enthusiasm. At 1 I o'clock all tbe Clergy were assembled in" the potteries' of the Church,'- to receive the Con- stituted Authorities." " Bishop . Korakowski offi ciated ; when Te Dei/ m was sung, the President of the provisional Commission delivered a very elo- quent discourse, ami published the of Confe- deration of Poland. When the reading of the. Aft was ove- » cries of " Long live the Emperor Napoleon the Great," a thousand times repeated, '.. filled ibe- s'paiciohs - arched of the Church. " Salvum fac imprratoriim Napoleonem," was then sung ; after' this ceremony, all the Authorities proceeded to the residence of bis Excellency the Duke of Bas- sano, to present to him the AS of Confederation, and beg that he- would submit it to bis Majesty. It. was announced the. same day that the Provi- sional Government of Lithuania, in order to con- secrate this great re- union, had resolved to give a portion of 1000 franks to a Lithuanian girl who should marry a man born in the Greater Poland,, and a second gift of 1000 franks to a Pi le who should marry a Lithuanian girl. By chance it occurred that the first couple immediately present- ed themselves and received the nuptial benedic- tion. In the evening the city was magnificently illuminated. The National Theatre was thrown open gratis. The Piece, entitled The C'ratoviant was pi- tyed.— The festival closed with a ball, of which Count Pac, a Lithuanian, did the honours. The trans, parencies were beautiful, and, the inscriptions very ingenious. Several French and Polish Generals were pr.- senr at the ball, which was also honoured hv the presence of his Majesty the Emperor and King. This same Gazette ( The Lithuanian Courier J nun' unces, this day, the refusal of the Grand Seignior to ratify the Treaty of Peace concluded at Bucharest, between tke Russian and Turkish Plenipotentiaries. His Majesty the Emperor Na- poleon, was still at Wilna, on the 15th. He en- joys the best possible health. BERLIN, JULY 14.— On the 11th, his Highness the Prince of Orange set out for Vogelsdorf, on his way to Breslau. According to the most recent intelligence from the army, the few Swiss regi- ments were stationed in the environs of Marien- v erder, a short distance from Dantzic. In the place where the Duna and the Niemen approach nearest to each other, that is to say, from Duna- burg to Kowno, the - distance of these two rivers asunder is 20 German miles. UONBQJV Monday, August 3. Yesterday the following bulletin of his Majesty's health was shewn at St- James's:— " Windsor Castle, August 1, 18) 3. " Soon after the last monthly report, his Majesty had a severe accession of his disorder, which < juickly subsided ; and his Majesty has since continued as well as before that attack." Advices were received on Saturday from France and Holland, which excite the strongest expefla- lion, that we shall soon have the satisfaliiion of laying before our readers the particulars of afi im.' portant viflory obtained by the Russians. A letter, I dated the 26th ult. from Paiis, states, that an en-! gagement had taken pl<( ee near Riga, in which ; the Prussians and the troops of the Confedera- tion of the Rhine had been defeated with con- siderable loss. Their defeat is attributed to their want of artillery, the badness of the roads having prevented them from bringing up a single field- piece to the scene of action. A letter from the French coast, dated the 29th ult. intimates the receipt of un- pleasant tidings from the Grand Army in more cau- tious terms. If says, " our affairs in the North do not go on so favourably as we expected " The accounts from Holland concur with chat from Paris, in stating, that a battle hal been fought in the virility of Riga and mentions the amount of the enemy's I iss at 15,000 men. The French force in the engagement, is said to have ennsisted of 60,000 men, under the Command of Marshal Macdomld. The numbers of the en? my and the extent of their loss, may be overrated, but we trust that the intelligence will prove correct as to the main fact. The subjoined extract of a letter from Riga, dated the 7th ult. amidst other interesting particulars, shews that Macdonald's army was then at a short, distance, and that formidable preparations were making to oppose him :— " General Essen having requ » sted the advice and assistance of Admiral Martin, the Admiral, in con- sequence, in the Aboukir, accompanied by the Ariel sloop of war, and Reynard gun- brig, arrived yesterday in Riga Bay. I have just been at the Castie. An Aid- de- Camp of the Emperor arrived in twenty- eight hours from headquarters, which were, on Sunday night and e: irly yesterday morning', at Widzt?, about sixty wersts from Dunaburg, but were to be removed j1 backward's yesterday to Dunaburg, and Droja, a very strong and fortified position. The Russians there hoped to be attacked. The army, certainly, never was before in such excellent condition and high spi- rits; well fed, ( for each m m gets four pounds of meat per week) well and lightly clothed and accout- red, and well paid. In short, every account agrees in these particulars : and the enthusiasm of the army is so great, as has never before been witnessed. " M irshal Macdonald, with about 20,000 French, « r rath" r Prussians, commanded by F- ench officers) was yesterday morning only about 45 wersts from Mittua, oil his way to Riga ; but no apprehensions are entertained here, as he lias no artillery, and could I not get up any in less than a month. The inhabitants r are ordered to lay in four months provisions, and the r works are to be manned with 30,000 men, about 18,000 of which are not , yet come, but are on the road from the interior, and near at hand. The ut most cordiality subsists between the General and the Admiral, and every thing will be done that is pos- sible. The Admiral has undertaken to ( it out a num- ber of gun and mortar boats, and they are selecting from the lighters. Captain Acklani has nearly finish- ed the telegraph between the Drinamurdo and the Dome Church. The- Commander and Officers of the five. British ships of War, nowhere, as well as their crews, are making great intercession with the Admiral to get employed in the gun- boats. Our brave sailors are in high spirits." On Thursday an express was sent off by Goverr. meiit to Brighton, to Mr Huskisson, requesting his • immediate return to London. On his arrival he was cloiett. ed with Lord Castlereagh, and had, on Friday and Saturday, interviews with his Lordship and the Earl of Liverpool. It is supposed that they relate to his proceeding to Ireland as Chief Secretary, in the room of Mr Wellesley Pole. Mr Huskisson is at- tached to Mr. Canning and his party, but the latter has no objection to his taking the place ; and Minis- ters are of opinion, that the appointment will be po- pular, as Mr Huskisson voted for the removal of the Catholic disabilities, is a gentleman of conailiating manners, no bigot, and one of the most able financiers in. the country ; consequently he will be competent to fill the situation of Chief Secretary and Chancellor of t. he Exchequer for Ireland. The business is not yet finally adjusted, but if he accepts of the place, it is said, it wdl be the prelude to Mr. Canning's taking the lead in Administration. The Beaver sloop of war is arrived from Wingo Sound with dispatches from Sir J. Saumarez. The Titmost exertion is using in the Swedish ports to equip all their transports and small vessels in order to em- bark- a hrge force to act against the French. Moreau is daily expected in Sweden. An immense quantity of com is on its way from the Russian ports for Eng- land. The Swedes are all alive, and very hearty m the cause. Saturday's Gazette contains an Order in Council, for detaining or capturing all American vessels, with the exception of such as are furnished with British Keener!. The first American vessel sent in, in consequence of the order to bring in American vessels, is the Mars, of Wilmington. She has been sent into Dover. It is supposed the three French frigates which fell in with the Niobe, 44, on her passage from the West Indies, were French frigates outward bound to the coast of America. A man was on Monday taken into custody, in an attempt to break open the linen- draper's shop at the corner of Bridge- street, Parliament- street, and lodged at St. Margaret's watch- house.—- Early yesterday morning a fellow depredator made a hole in the wall ot the watch- house, and effected his escape. While the fellow was mak- ing the hole, snme masons, who were at work near the spot, asked him what we was aboat; he. told them that ho was breaking space for a win- dow. This answer satisfied them, arid both ruf- fians got clear eff. For several nights past, the premises of Mr. Hedges, market- gardener, of Hampstead, had been robbed ; in consequence of which he was determined to watch on Sunday night, when he detected a man in his garden, of the name of Cutting. In attempting to secure him, the fel- low drew his knife and stabbed Mr. Hedges in several places, one of which entered near the jugular vein. The culprit is in custody, and Mr. Hedges lies dangerously ill. A Welch seaman of the name of —— Jones, was found on board La Ville de Caen privateer. This man was easily recognised on the eaptnre of the privateer, having sailed in several privateers from the port of Plymouth, and being generally known as a man of the most determined courage and of profligate habits. He has also been in the Royal Navy, has occasionally been a Master's Mate, and has deseried from several ships. While he sailed in the Plymouth privateers he was fre quently engaged in contests with the police, and has been known to strike terror even amongst the members of a press- gang. He will be tried at the nest Admiralty Sessions. His connexions aie respeflable.

AN ILLUSTRIOUS FKMM. E. • j, The following paragraph w hich we have ex- traced fom the Timet of Saturday, will be read i wtth much interest and surprise : | ' A report of a vei- v singular nature has been com- municated to us, which we in like manner communi- ; cate to the public, but without in any degree pledg. > inir ourselves for its truth. The statement is this :—- 1 That very recently, a Minister of State waited on an illustrious female, and, after stating how much he felt i at being the hearer of the message he , was about to communicate to her, proceeded to inform her, that he. i Came, by command of her husband, to state to her, that 111" thought her_ visits to the issue of their mar- riage were too. frequent, and to request that they might he l-' ss so in future, and not too long at one time. The illustrious mother then called one of her attendants into th » room, who, at her request, wrote, down the substance of the messasrf, which was read to the beare, thereof, and acknowledged by him to be correct. The attendant then, by his mistress's de- sire, signed the paper; after which, the Minister of State, on the same request, also signed it.— Times. RUSSIAN BULLETINS. REPORT OP TBI OPERATIONS OF THI WAR. Head- quarters, June 19, ( July 1.), The French Army appears to have- divided it- self into two corps, the one following our move- ments, and the other endeavouring- to out- flank, us on the right. The first corps of our army pro- ceeds on its march according., to the plan adopted, and has already effefled its junflion with various . divisions. The enemy, in reconnoitring, us, Jr^ s made attacks several points, but has always been repulsed with loss. In. one of th'; se sk'rrrushes, Count Delow Denizen General Adjutant to- his Imperial Majesty, took several prisoners, among whom is Count Octavius Segur. On the 18th the corps of Count Wittgenstein was between Wilkomie and Holtmeny. The corps of Lieutenant- General Tutsckrow and Count Scherwalotf are approaching Swenzenny. Tbe corps of Gen. Doderow is on the march from Ochmany to Swerzenny. General Platow has left Bralostock, and is drawing towards Wilecka, Prince B igration continues to approach the first corps. roSTCRIPT TO THE PETR^ SBURGH GAZETTE OF ' THE 25TH JUNE ( JULY 7-) Dated Head- rjuarters, June 21 ( July .3.)

It is clear from every cfr- cumstance, that the French Emperor, has been for- ced, in consequence of our mode of conducing the campaign, to change his original, plan . of oper- ations, which only terminated in useless marches, as we had abandoned the spot which would, have been most advantageous for hjni in the event of a battle. By such a procedure we have in part at- tained our object, andexpefl also, in future a simi- lar result. - ." To day our army is stationed in the following places:— The Corps of Count Witgen. stein, in Kimshary. The Corps of the Generals Baggreiriwad', Titt- schkow, Johnwallow, have encamped befoje Wid- zir, ' ---:• --- The Corps of General Dochterow, in Budea. The Reserve in Kamoz. On the 18 h of June, the Colonel of the regi-' ment cf Polish Henlaw Galewa, was dispatched, together with the corps under his command, by Major- Gen. Korpin order to reconnoitre the enemy. In the evening of the 20th, he received ordeVs to direfl his march across the distrift of Lantnpa to the town of Swedzianes, for which place he set out early on the next day, after having assembled his ordettes, in the hope of finding his regiment there; but the places through which he had to pass, were already occupied by three regiments of the enemy's cavalry. When Colonel Galewa perceived himself to be. thus completely hemmed ift, he formed his troop into' a column, and proceeded to cut his way through the enemy's cavalry. After having ac- complished his object, and gained a. w. pqd, he charged the horn f* g£ fs, wao- attetnpted a second time to intercept him, and put them to flight. His loss consisted of one Officer and i.% ty- six privates; that of the enemy amounted to two Commanders of squadrons and a considerable number of heulans, grenadiers, and yagers killed.

The 4th at Nawloky. The 5th at Melaschi. The 6th corps at Noragrodi. The movements ot the enemy have been more frequent, which has caused some skirmishes.

So complete does rhe Ccrunna Gazette represent the defeat to have been, that, the enemy lost from 10 in 12,000 men in k lied, wounded, and pri- soners,, nearly all their artillery, several eagles, and a great quantity of arms, ammunition, and baggage. We hasten to lay before our readers the Gazette SUPPLEMENT TO THE COURTER OF TUESDAY, JULY 28, 1812, RECEIVED AT HALF- PAST SEVEN, P. M. OF THE PRECEDING DAY. The General, Chief of the Staff of. the 5; h and 6fh Armies, by letter of this day, communicates to me the following agreeable intelligence :— " The. Captain General in Chief has just re- ceived the agreeable news, that on th? 22d inst. the enemy'^ . army, under Marshal Marmont, was completely defeated in the neighbourhood of Sa- lamanca by the a'lied army under the command of Marshal General Duke of Ciudad Rodrigo, with which is united the third division of the Sih Spanish. -' " The enemy has lost several eagles, nearly all his artillery, and a considerable quantity of arms, baggage, and. ammunition, His loss in killed " and wounded is from 10 to 12,000 men, of whom about 4000 are taken, including General Bonnet, who is wolinded. - „" The enemy was retreating to Alba de Tormes, and the tfiflorious army was in pursuit.

PEDRO P. yfAtos." Corunna, 27th July, ha! f- past 7, P. M. The doubt thrown on the first report of a battle was, because the date of it was fixed on the 18( h and 19th, arid there were dispatches from Sir H, Douglas, dated near Tord, on- the 22d, mention ing nothing- of it. haying taj^ en' place on the 22d, there is of course nothing irre. cohcileable in The intelligence with. Sir Howard's silence. And we learri further, that fie hid1 on that day no news from our aimy later, that! the 18th. ' : " , The scene of the Twttje, tieaf" 9alam* nca wflj surprise our readers, who proh'ibly expefled Ft to be fought near Vallad^ lid. . But it is sai. l that Lord Wellington purposely retreated from the Southern- Bank of the Douro, Marmont being so strongly posted on the other side with a consi- derable quantity of cannon, on the heights which command the plain, in which the troops- must have formed after crossing the Dtfuro. Mai flionf; upon Lord Wellington's retreat, conceived, it is said, that, it, was his Lordship's real intention: to proceed towards M » « ii< J,' and that he Was m iy reiriatir. g , o deceive hifn with- respeifl to his real vi » wj.—, Marmopt accordingly passed the Douro, apd fo]. ow ed his Lordship to the neighbourhood of Sala- marica, where our army brought him to aflion, with what splendid success the Corunna Gazette has shew n. . A private letter from Corunna adds, that the Spanish troops who had joined our army behaved - wi, th the greatest steadiness and courage. The advices from Gottenhurp- h are to th- 3 26th of lastvmonth ; and by those we learn, that bv a schooner sent north about, exoress from the Unit- ed States, the intelligence of the war between the Republie- and Great Britain, reached Sweden about the same time that it arrived in England. Whether letters of marque and reprisal from ths American Government were sent out by that vessel, to be placed at the disposal of the agents of the United States in the B dtir, we are not in- formed ; but if it should be so. it will produce a very serious situation of matters in that sea. We understand that Government have received information of a disposition expressed by the Court of Copenhagen, to unite with its neighbours in the North, in a system of mutual defence'against French encroachment and hostility, and that 5( 7- nadotte has been principally instrumental in pro. ducing this change in t; hp Councils of that King- dom.— Our advices by the Mail do not favour this account. We are told that a Russian Pr'- ee had paid a visit to Copenhagen, to negotiate an alliance, and had returned to St. Petersburg!), disappointed in his purpose. It is amazing how ready we are to see a quan- tity of convenient virtue in Bl. rnadotte, without waiting for the slightest demonstration of any. Oil Monday morning the situation of American ships was somewhat singular in England. An or- der from the English Treasury permitted the de- parture for the United States, of those which hid cleared out with Licenses; but, another order from the Admiralty had placed the broad R i: pr, ti them, and had direfled their deter. tfcn'as Droiu of Admiralty,- in. consequence of . the coqotliepce. ment of the war. Three.^ hjps which had atfiial. ly left the English ports, were e it after by son>. e fast- sailing schooners, and have been forced, v. c hear, to return into harbour. Letters from New Brunswick, of the 1st of last month, state, that by a Courier, after four days journey from Quebec, information had been ob- tained, that two English ships in the lakes had been taken possession of by the Americans. Bonaparte has lately issued a great number of new licences, to which he has been induced, in the- hope of obtaining some revenue. — J » Mary Kelly, well known as a noted offender in this neighbourhood for years pnst, was appre. hended' yesterday for having on Thursday night the 6th inst. stolen the cloth.. covering of a Gen- tleman's carriage and the cushions of his jaunt- r i tig- car, which- she gave to a female associate to dis- j pose of. The covering of the carriage was found, cut into different pieces, and tbe clodl cushions made into a cloak, which she had on when taken into custody.— We understand she has been com- mitted to Carrickfergus Jail, by Cortland Skin- ner, Esq. On Thursday last, a sailor belonging to the brig Ceres, now under repair at the Dry- dock, . fell from the forie- top down on a platform hang, ing over the side of the vessel, and from thence into the dock : he was immediately carried to the hopital, where medical aid was promptly obtain- ed. Besides a wound on the head, and being se- verely bruised in many partsy he has received a compound fracture of his left leg, which it is feared may yet lead to the loss ot die limb. OATMEAL.— Last week, a vessel with 643 bags of Oatmeal arrived at this port from Liverpool ; also, two vessels from Scotland, with 108 tons— a supply which has tended materially to keep down the Markets. The Marquis of Downshire has given thirty gui- neas to be distributed among the poor of the parish of Drurribo, and M jor Rainey has given ten guineas for the same benevolent purpose.— These humane do,, nations have been highly serviceable at the present pe- riod, when the poor have been suffering so severely under the pressure of the times, and we hope the men- tion of these deeds of charity will stimulate others to imitate so laudable examples. BRITISH NAVY.— The following is the amount of the British Naval Force up to the fir^ t of Au- gust. At sea, 94 ships of the line, 10 from 50 to 44 guns, 119 frigates, 109 sloops and yachts, 8 bombs and fire ships, 132 brigs, 82 cutters, 53 schooners, gun- vessels, luggers, & c. ; total 557— In port and fitting, 23 of tiie lire, 9 from 50 to cutters, 13 schooners, Sc.; total, 132- Guard ships, 44 guns, 82 frig. tes, 28 sloops, Sic. 17 brigs, 10 5 of the line, 4 frigates, 4 sloops, & c.; total, 13. — Hospital ships, Prison ships, & c. 32 of the line, 2 of 50 guns, 2 frigates; total 36.— Ordinary anti repairing for service, 71 of the line, 9 from 50 to ' 44 gun's, 64 frigates, 37 sloops, & c. 6 bombs, & c. 13 brigs, 1 cutter, 5 schooners, & c. ; total, 206.— Building, 33 ot the line, 5 r f 44 gu. i , 16 fri- gatesj 7 sloopss,' 8 brigs; total, 89— Grand total, 1,013- " "' * Mr. Piere Heil, a Bavarian Artist, has invented a new instrument of music, which renders the notes visible by means of colours, and which he has named " Harmmieon a tons fiisibles" ( the vii'blp, sounds Hurmonitfon.)

TO THE Gentlemen. Clergy, and Freeholders, OW THE COUNTY OF LONDONDERRY. GF. STI. eMErN, His Royal' Highness the PRINCE REGBVT having been grarmu Kiy pleased, durmg my absence from Eng- und, to ofF'i' nie a situation in his Royal Hitfhness's family, I could not hesitate, on my arrival from the army in the P. ninsula, in accepting this fluttering mark of his royal favour; and when I considt'i, with equal pride and pleasure, that it is only one act of a long se- ries of unbounded condescension and kindness, that has maiked the conduct of that Illustrious Personage towards me, for many years, I trust I shall stand ac. qu'tted with the County for vacating- my 3eat at an unusual period, and submitting myself again to the criterion of their verdict. 1 can yield to none in es- timation of the value, dignity, and importance of being one of their Representatives— To none in the deepest gratitude for the repeated honours conferred upon me — To none in the anxious Uope and honest ambition to retain them ; and, above all— To none in never ceasin:/ efFo ts to deserve them. Alter so long, and, I trust, so intimate an acquaintance with i • Countys fuoi. rr professions would be idle and superfluous ) but 1 feel I have stiongly to appeal to an indulgence and consideration which, I hope, my peculiav predicament niay render pardonahle. The state ofiny health, add- rd to the severest domestic calamity, obliged me to leave the army in Spain, and I am not sufficie ntly re- established to undertake the active duties of a personal canvass; if theietore, I might flatter myself to stand excused with the County, for not being on the spot at the present junctu'e, I would seize the first moments of returning health to visit a country which contains every thing I hold most dear, and value highest. I shall only add, that, whateyer may be the event, on the present occasion, I look forward, with an humble and honest confidence, that, in the discharge of my professional duties these last five years ( altho' una- voidably absent from attending to the immediate in- terests of the Countv,) I nave not acted in any man- ner to alienate its affections or forfeit the good opinion manifested towards me heretofore, in so distinguished and honourable a manner. I have the honour to be, Gentlemen, Yoiir faithful and obedient Seivant, CHARLES STEWART. Cheltenham, July 30, 1812. BAELYMONEY RACES WILL COMMENCE ON MONDAY, 24- TH AUGUST, 1812.

FRANCIS SAVAGE, against the defendants, to recover damages, in consequence" of the defendants' preventing plain, tiff fencin? about RO acres of marshes, obtained Ivy plaintiff from Mts. Maxwell at last Assizes.— Damages laid at j£ 200. The defendants' pleaded the general issue. "•- Andrew Stevenson, sworn— Isaland- surveyor; Vnows the marshes in dispute; was employed in 1800, by the late Mr. Maxwell to mate a map of the dry lands in ihis estate ; did so ; ( did not mea- sure the marsh in dispute on that occasion ; was employed in 1806, by Doctor Kennedy, ( Mrs. Maxwell's agent) to make a survey and map of the dry land and marshes; when the sur\ ey was made in 1800, the marshes were partly covered ; at that time the embankment and flood- gates erefl- ed by Lord De Clifford at the Quoile were broke down ; on both the surveys was attended by Sam. Robinson, as mearsman for Mr. and Mrs. Maxwell; in 1810 was employed by Lord De Clifford to mark the boundaries at high- water mark ; was at- tended by James M'G'enon and William M'Kee ; Mr. Millar, Lord De Clifford's agent, attended, and desired witness to keep inside rather than out. side of the high- water mark ; did so ; has seen the fences made by the plaintiff; doe not know whether thev were made ex. iflly as he marked them or not. James M'Glenon— Remembers the trial be- twixt present plaintiff and Mrs. Maxwell in 1810; assisted in pointing out fhe water- mark to Mr. Stevenson ; attended the Juty yesterday ; pointed nut the same boundaries to them as he did to Stevenson. William M'Kee's evidence was the same as last witness. Alexander Miller, Esq— Is agent to Lord De Clifford; attended Mr. Stevenson while making the survey previous to the ejeflm? nt ; Mr. John Martin was there; Samuel Robi- son and Hugh Cochran attended as mearsmen for Mrs. Maxwell; no dispute about the mearings on that occasion ; pot- possession of marshes in dispute from the She- riff in March, 1811 ; defendants were present; made no ohjeflion ; Mr. John Martin afterwards was in treaty about them, and wished ihe mearings to be made, that there might not be any further disputes; witness sent Stevenson, M'Glenon, and M'Kee, with some labourers to mark out fences, and if any objeflion should be made, to make them by Mrs. Maxwell's own mpn's marks ; Mr. J. Mar. tin saw the labourers cutting the marks, and made no objeftion ; fences made according to mearings marked by Stevenson, on 2d July; Mr. Martin desired the labourer's to stop ; 23d Ju'y, Mr. Mar. tin ag. rn prevented the labourers making fences; Upwards of 100 men attended on Mr. Martin's part ; 29h July, another obslruflion"; at all those times the workmen were inside of Stevenson's marks; wi. ness was at the marshes 8th August; all the work dr, previous had been thrown down ; what was ooi i cost jfS3; witness thinks the marches would h been cheap at £] an acre; the water-'*" tks at the Quoile, which prevented those marshes from being covered, were renaired in 1c03, by Lord i) e Clifford ; cost about £$ 000. W'lliam P- iterson— Was se" nt as overseer by Mr. M> ller to make up fsnces ; was desired by Mr. Martin not to do so ; a great many people attended on Mr. Martin's part to prevent Mr. Miller's men- from workirg.

Lease from Thomas Lord Cromwell, the Earl of Ardglas, to the Rev. Henry Maxwell, dated 10th August, 1680, for 1000 years Admitted. Hugh Cochran, sworn— Knows the Townland of Tuch, and the marshes in question ; they wbre always made use of by Mrs. Maxwell's tenants; the fences made by Mr. Millar in some places, were far abrtve high- wa'er mark ; are all above low- wa- ter- mark ; for thirty- two years he lived adjoining ; he never seen the tide as high as the fences made by Mr. Miilar. J" hn Beatty— Knows the marshes 70 years; in 174. S, water- works were erefted ; has seen the place-, where the three obstructions were given by Mi. Martin ; is positive they are all above high- wstet- mark ; never seen the tide so high as where M: Miller wanted to make the fences ; at low water one or two acres were covered by salt water; pcintid out yesterday to the Jury what he was convinced was the Mgh- water- mark; in many places lower than uhen Mr. Miller wanted to make the fences ; is 82 years of age. John B^ ssett— Knows the marshes in question near 80 years; is 87 years of age ; knew them be- foie the waterworks were ereifted in 1748 j they vere mostly covered at high. water before that time; are not now ; were covered when the works br'ki down in 1790 and 1800; gave the same testim ny now as on last trial; the fences in some places are above high- water- mark. James Hamilton— knows the marshes in ques- tion ; ihe ' hree places ai which Lord De Clifford's men were obstructed ; are all above high- water mark. Rev. Doflor Kennedy Bailie— Is Agent to Mrs. Maxwell ; in 1806 sent Stevenson to make a sur- vey of ihe marshes in question; sent Sam. Robin- son to point out the boundaries; Robinson is the person who usually does so. S im Robinson— Was sent by Doflor Kennedy Bailie to assist Sievenson in surveying ihe marshes; d d not point out the mearings ; does not know them ; no person but witness attended on the part of Mrs. M. ixwell. Rent Books of the Estate produced— It appear- ed that on the 17th Odlober, 1754, Mr. Maxwell paid LordDe Cliffoid [£ 5, for the May rent of ibat year, for the marches in question.

John Neill, sworn— Is 68 years of age ; lives in Ho'lymount ; knows the marshes in dispute; Peter Breen held them at one time; knows the drain betwixt the Hog- island marsh and one in dispute ; it was the mearing always; knows it to be so these 50 years ; Mr. Price held it after Peter Breen ; Breen paid rent to Mr. Pfice for it and a farm adjoining-, 13 or 14 years; never knew any person but Mr. Price, or his tenants, graze on it; witness recollefts his father cutting ru- hes on the marsh in dispute, but was prevented by Mr. Sutherell's Agent from cutting on his side of drain ; the new cut made by Mr. Savage is three feet inside of old mearing. George Breen, aged 72— Lives in countv Ar- magh ; is son to Peter Breen, who held a farm, and marsh in dispute, from Mr. Price ; has seen the new cut ; it is three feet inside the old one, which was the mearing as long as he rccollefls; more th in 50 years; affer his father gave it up Mr. Price took it into his own hands. James Jarvis— Has lived in Hollymonnt since he was born; knows the marsh in dispute 50 years; knew Peter Breen holding it, afterwards two Mr. Prices, and now Mr. Savage holds it; they grazed it; never heard of any person claim it till within these four years ; old cut has always been the mearing betwixt Mr. Savage and Lord De Clif- ford ; new cut made by Mr. Savage is three feet inside of it; after Pet^ r Breen gave it up, Mr. Price made a bridge into it, and put a gate on it; does wot know why or by whom the arbitration was broke off; new cut ra^ de a few days after by Mr. Savage. Thimas Tomey, 81 years of age— Knows the marshes in dispute; was Steward for old Mr. Price, and then for the last Mr. Pace ; the diain alluded to by other witnesses was the mearing be- twixt Lord De Clifford and Mr. Price; never heard of any person make use of marsh in dispute except Mr. Price, or snch people as he allowed. Lord De Clifford cleared a number of drains while witness lived in Hollymount, but never came so far as Peter Breen's marsh. James Harvey— Is 70 years of age; knows marsh in dispute more than 50 years; never knew any person but the Mr. Prices and Mr. Savage make use of it ; the drain mentioned has always, so long as witness recollefls, been the mearing ; new cut made inside of it. Arthur Bigham— Is 64- vearsof age; his father lived in Downpatrick, and held the marshes next to those in dispu'e from Lord De Clifford ; old drain was the mearing; never trespassed on marsh in dispute ; was cautioned against doing so by his father, who was not on good terms with Mr. Price; Mr. Price's cattle graze on marsh in dispute. I James Cnmmine, Esq Knew the late Mr. Trotter as agent to Mri Sutherell; paid him rent as such in 1763. An affidavit of Mr. Trotter was read, stating, that he had been agent 40 years for Mr. Sutherell; it was dated 24 h Mav, 176S; stated that he had met obstruflion from Mr. Price while cleaning the drains, Sic. 3cc.• FOR PLAINTIFF. Joseph Peirry— Is 76 years old ; was born in the Inch, opposite Hollymount; before the water- works were erefled in 1748, the tide flowed far above Hollymount, over marsh in dispute; after they were erected the marches were drained, one in dispute among the rest; the drain close round by Hollymount wood, as long as witness recol- lefls, was the mearing betwixt Lord De Clifford and Mr. Price, and not the drain, as sworn to by other witnesses. Cross- examined— Is well acquainted with all the marshes around ; witness left the Inch at the age of 6,7, or 8 ; at that time mearings not ascer- tained ; never heard of Peter Breen till last trial; was over maish in dispute very often, sometimes four or five times a week ; never observed any thing like a drain betwixt Hog- island marsh and one talked of; all was flat; never seen any of Mr. Price's cattle on Peter's marsh ; never heard that Peter Breen had i', on bis honour ; no grass on march 20 or 22 years ago. John Miller— Knows marsh in dispute; herded tfattle there ; they went over all the marshes ; in the center there was a soft place not unlike a drain; never was prevented grazing on marsh in dispute; on the contrary, always drove Mr. Price's cattle off, ar. d would have impounded them, but they could not get across the drain; does not think the new cut is near the old drain; first knew the marshes in 1768 ; his uncle held it for 14 years from that time; repeatedly cut grass off Peter's march where the cows could not get it; during that lime has t 1 i J.- mes Jarvis to keep Mr. Price's cattle aff Peter's m^ rsh repeatedly; he on one side of the drain, and Mr. Jatvis on the other.— Here Mr. Jarvis was recalled, and swore positively that he ne » ei" had any communication witli witness or any person else on the subjefl.— Witness, how- ever, put it to him, whether he had not on one occasion taken him, with other boys, prisoner, for having been in Mr. Price's wood cutting fishing rods. Rent Leger of Lord De Clifford's produced— mar. hes round Hog- island held by him in 1761, 62, and 63 Arthur Bigham re- produced— is positive that in 1763 they were held by his father.

SIR— T' ere is. perhaps, no subject in the whole range of Natural History, which has occasioned a greater divers'ty ot opinion than the manner in which the Cuckoo rears her young. Some Natu- ralists asserting, that she lays her eggs in the nests of o'her little birds, and takes no further care of her offspring ; others, on the contrarv, main- taining, that she builds her own nest, and hatches her young in the same manner as other birds.— The anomaly which the former opinion exhibits, may well be supposed to create in the mind of the cautious Naturalist no small degree of uncer- tainty, when he is told of so great a deviation from the common course of nature ; and nothing but the most authentic and clearly attested facts should ever induce him to adopt an opinion, ap- parently, so contrary to the general laws which govern the animal kingdom. I have been led into these reflections, from hav- ing lately perused an ingenious and well- written article in the Edinburgh Encyclopedia, on the Migra- tion of Birds, a work which does honour to the na- tion in which it is produced, and to every gentle- man concerned in the publication. As it has a very extensive circulation, not only in Great Bri- tain and Ireland, but also in America ( a new edi- tion being now commenced in Philadelphia), every opinion which the writers advance, must at- tract the attention of the reader, who will, proba- bly, be inclined to attach a certain importance to that opinion, in proportion to the celebi > y of the publication. It is, therefore, of the utmost con- sequence, that nothing be stated in the work con- trary to matters of fact. The writer of the Article ( Birds Migratory, vol. III. page 515.) after a few preliminary observa'ions oil the first appearance of the cuckoo, proceeds thus : " The prevailing opinion is, that it neither hatches nor rears its own young. But as we are in general unbelievers in most of the supposed anomalies of nature, we shall offer our doubts respecting the truth of this assertion. The opinion respecting this unnatural act of indifference of the cuckoo- towards its own offspring, may be traced so far back as the days of Aristotle, who has written on the subject, and who was afterwards followed by Pliny. These Naturalists differ a little in their accounts; the first averring, that the cuckoo destroys all the eggs in the hedge- sparrow's nest, and then de- posits her own single one ; while the last author says, that the hedge- sparrow, notwithstanding the desparity of size, hatches the additional egg, with the whole of her own, which remains unT touched. The general stud; ot Natural History has enabled us to judge of the degree of credit that should be given to the many idle stories which formerly disgraced her volumes; such as the ostrich laying her eggs in the hot sands of Africa, and the sun hatching them without any regard on the part of the parent— of the fretful porcupine shooting his quills against those who assailed or annoyed him, and with many others of the same kind. But late travellers have con- vinced us of the falsity, of these, and such reports. We are also apt to think that this popular story respecting the cuckoo, will soon, like these, pass away as a mere vulgar error. We never yet, af- ter much pains and search, could find a cuckoo's egg, either in the nests of wood- pigeons, hedge- sparrows, larks, wagtails, or yellow- hammers.— To make all these birds stand as the foster- dames to the cuckoo, is surely a most glaring absurdity. Some of them are not insecliverous, which all cuckoos ara ; and we can hardly imagine, that they would change their food and habits of life, and become contrary to nature, the affectionate guardians of such unaccountable orphans. Wood- pigeons and yellow- hammers feed upon grains and seeds; cuckoos upon catterpillars, meal- worms, maggots, dragon- flies, & c. Birds, too, that arc not domesticated, would hardly submit to have their own eggs thrown out, and to have such a huge one placed in their stead, without for. saking their nest. Mr. John Hunter, whom we have formerly mentioned, dissected many cuc- koos, and found them as well fitted and formed for incubation as any of the birds that are said to hatch them. Indeed we have frequently made inquiries about this popular belief, of the cuckoo not hatching her own eggs, nor of rearing her own young, but we never were able to get any well authenticated accounts of such an unnatural abandonment of parental care. We, therefore, are inclined to be of opinion, that, upon a close investigation, the cuckoo will be found to build its own nest, to lay more eggs than one, and to bring them into life from its own incubation." In the above statement, the author, with becom- ing caution, only gives his opinion, leaving it to future observation and experiehce, either to estab- lish or contradict it. Darwin, in his Zoonomia, states, that the Rev. Mr. Stafford found the nest of a cuckoo in the Peak of Derbyshire. Aristotle, ( L. 6, H. c. 1.) asserts, that she sometimes builds her own nest; and again adds, ( L. 6, H. c. 7.) that she generally possesses the nest of another bird. Niphus affirms, that cuckoos rarely build for themselves, most frequently laying their eggs in some other bird's nest. ( See Gesner, L. 3. de Cuculo.) I cannot say how the cuckoo may dispose of her eggs in other countries, but I can affirm, with incontrovertible assurance, that, in this part of the country, she deposits her eggs in the Moss- cheepers' nests. In the summer of 1802, I was askeJ by some young boys to see a Moss- cheeper's nest, which they said, contained a very large bird ; I went with them, and found three or four Moss- cheepers flying about it, they appeared all to be alt'tiding it: I took it out of the nest and brought it to Mr. Kerr's of Aghaboy, the Moss- cheepeis followed us with all the anxiety of a parent, till I came near the house, which w, is at a short di- tance.— On examining the bird, I found it had the round prominent nostrils, and all the chara& eiistic marks of the cuculus canorut of Linnaeus. I placed it carefully in the nest, with instruflions to ihe buys to watch it frequently; but ia a day or t » o they told me it was away. My ingenious friend, Mr. William Graham, of ^ Andread. near RandaWtown, informs me, that one vear he found a Moss. cheeper's nest, containing three or four eggs, one of which was a great deal larger than the others ; he watched it daily, saw the Moss- c'ieeoer frequently sitting, and when t he birds carne out, one of them was three times as large as the others, and soon filling ihe nest, thrust the rest over the side, where they all perished.— It continued to increase daily in bulk, and at last went away. This yef, also, a nest w- ts found containing a young cuckoo; I had it in my hand ; • it had all the marks of the other which I examin- ed in 1802 : the little boy who got it could not be prevailed upon to part with it; he kept it a few we" ks, and it died. From what has been just stated, it is, I think, evident, that, in this country, either the cuckoo, or some other large bird deposits its eggs in the Moss- cheeper's nest, and that these little birds hatch and feed the young as their own— that it is the click > o which deposits her eggs is evident, because the nest of a cuckoo has not, so far as the writer of this has been able to discover, been found in any part of this country ; nor did he ever hear of young cuckoos being found in the nest of any other bird save ihat of a Moss- cheeper ; and, per- ha s, the ingenious writer of the above quotation from the Encyclopaedia, whuld have come better to his purpose, if, instead of searching the nests of wood- pigeons, hed^ e- sparrows, wjgtails, or yel- low hammers, he had directed his attention alone to the nest of the Moss- cheeper. It must be con- fessed, that this deviation from the ordinary course of nature is no less difficult to explain than won- derful to contemplate ; but, perhaps, when Natu- ral History shall have acquired, from accurate ob- servation and fafls, a more enlarged sphere, this phenomenon in ornithology will be clearly uftfold- ed. As anonymous statements, however true, can- not be implicitly depended on, and, therefore are of little use in promoting the advancement of science, I beg leave, Sir, to subscribe myself your obedient servant, JOHN GETTY.

With the most heartfelt pleasure do we record every heroic aft of our fleets and armies; and with the greatest avidity do we seize on every op. portunity of publishing the just and honourable proceedings of our Government, whidlv. with all its defefts, we maintain to be the best on'Vanh ; bur it has lately been our painful duty to notice a line of conduft, which, if persisted in, by our Na- val Commanders, or sanftioned by the Lords of the Admiralty, must inevitably bring disgrace upon our Government in the eyes'bf all nations, and be produftive of discontent, disorder, and ruin at home— in vain do we talk of the liberty of the subjefi, if every petty fellow commanding a Schooner or Cutter, such as Morgan and Carroll, can, with impunity, seize upon whom they please and . carry them on board the fleet— in vain do we conform to the laws of the Country, if our o^ e. dience, and the License of the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, cannot proteft us against the meanest of his Majesty's Servants. *' v - Upwards of eighty men, having the authority of the L° rd Lieutenant and Privy Council of Ire- land for leaving the Country, with a view to bet- ter their conditions in life, having been minutely inspefted by the Colleftor and Chief Magistrate of Derry, and declared by them to. be of that descrip- tion of his Majesty's subjefts as were authorized by law to emigrate— yet Morgan seizes upon, and treats them most inhumanly— they are carried on board various ships of the fleet, torn, from their property and friends, and when sought out by the remonstrance of the Merchants of Derry, not one of ihem is found liable to impressment, nor to differ in the slightest degree from what they had been represented, and the only atonement which offended justice has yet received is, that these un- fortunate men have been set on the Irish shore, destitute of every means of proceeding to their homes, till aided by the humanity of the Secre- tary to the Lord Lieutenant, and Mr. Ogilby. With all this fresh on the memory of our readers, it " grieves uV,-. grieves us to the heart, to make known another outrage of a similar nature, committed by his Majesty's ship Morgiana, on the 4 It of June last, in lat. 41. 40.' lung. 57. 25. on the sh p Alexander^ bound from this^ Port to New.

SHREWSBURY.— This was a prosecution for T Libel. The defendant',' a respectably farmer and the proprietor of a patent medicine, called—. " Ploughman's Drops," had published a hand, bill in which insinuations wer - thrown out against the medical treatment pursued by the plaintiff ( who is a practitioner of Medicine at Wellington V towards one of his parents. Mr. Evtort opatied the proceedings, and was followed by Mr. Pear- son, who begged the Jury to consiJer the nature of the libel, and the motives of the. writer. Dr. Smith had been in the habit of attacking the whole body of the Faculty,, as ignorant, protend-, ers, in comparison with his erudition. The hand- bill was entitled—" A Challenge to the Welling- . ton Doctor ;" and it evidently had a tendency to disturb the peace. Mr. Evett was a reputable, but young manconsequently to attack his pro- fessional character, and hold it up to ridicule, might be of serious injury to him : he thtyefore trusted the Jury would not hesitate to find the defendant guilty." The printing of the paper was proved to have been done by the directionMr. Smith ; and Mr. Dauncey then rose in favour of the defendant; Hs commented on the hand- Kill in a happy strain of ridicule, which convulsed the Court with laughter. The case, he said, had no- thing in it which constituted a libel— it was. a mere empty physic- bqttle : he had never seen a wore modest puff in his life. tjian that of his client. With respect to the print of the horse with four great boobies . on his back, it meant anything, or nothing : tbey may fancy that the horse'had taken the drops and was galloping off; while the man, who Was represented as riding backward, held up the tail and watched the operation of the metli- ' cine. But it was said his client had challenged the Faculty— the whole body of the Faculty : he had so— and they in jeturn called liim " Quack ; n they all came upon him like pies following an owl, merely because. he did not kill in a regular way. He ( Mr. Dauncey) and his brethren at the bar, challenged' each . other every day— the whole fac- totum " of the Faculty challenge each other ;— iri short every cock strutted upon his own walk: Why, then, should not his client crow among them ? He believed his client's drops liVtd done more good than all the mercury and medicine in an apothecary's shop. He remem- bered a story of a gentleman who having been plentifully dosed with medicines from au apothe- caryt., 3t last resolved to empty all the bottles in future ihto a pail. When the pail was full, he sent for his ' doctor and told him he was quite cured, as he had got rid of yonder pailful of sttiff ( pointing to the pail). The Doctor replied, shak- ing his head, " Aye, aye, if you had not taken my rnr ,' cines, and got rid of all that—- you would have been a dead man !"— Mr. D. concluded by- saying that the intention of Dr. Smith was not to injure Mr. Evett, but merely to extol his own medicine, over that of every other person. The Jury, after a short conversation, found the defendant— Guilty. His Lordship then pasned the sentence of the Court, which was, that he b ® fined 6/. Sd. ^ About a fortnight ago, as a colt belonging to Mr. James Morison, Birdstone, was looking over a hedge which bounded the enclosure where it< » dam was grazing, something or other alarmed it, and induced it to make a spring to gain the op- posite. side. The hedge being old, and newly cut down, the sterns presented their upward dressed points, like a. thick- wedged barrier of bayonets—. on these the chest of tiie poor creature rested. Alarmed by its cries and groans, a number of people soon came to its assistance ; when relieved from its situation, shocking to relate, its intestines did not only obtrude themselves on the view frorn a large orifice in its belly, but were actually dis- charged on the ground in a very large quantity. The people assembled, forcibly laid the poor ani- mal on its back, replaced the intestines with all possible care, sewed up and bandaged the wound, and, to the admiration of the whole neighbour- hood, the little sufferer is able to go about, suck, its dam, and is likely to recover. Monsieur Petite, who lately made his escape from confinement at Montrose, by unscrewing the locks of three doors, was caught, a few days ago, at Ruthven print- field, after a hard run over hedge and ditch, by some gentlemen who were viewing the field. Monsieur was brought in by the neck, and safely lodged in his old qturters in Perth gaol ( he was there about a year ago. )— The little gentleman having been ordered over to the depot at Pennycuick, a serjeant and seven or eight men were sent to escort him. On their ar- rival at Kirkaldy, where they were to hslt foj the day, he was deposited for the time in the pri- son there ; but Monsieur Petite did r. ot like the house, and left it quietly during the night. He has not since been heard of. Last week, as one of the Lancashire Militia wis bathing in Mill- bay, near Plymouth, and was re- turning from a lugger to which he had swam, the speftatqrs became alarmed by his repeated shrieks, A boat having been sent immediately to ascertain the cause of his cries, he informed the rowers that he had been followed and repeatedly bitten by « fish of enormous size, and on examining hi,- legs, they were found to have been bitten severely in various places. It is probable that a shark may have followed the mackarel into Plymouth, as tii « approach of this kind of fish to the western shores is generally marked by the appearance of fish < f enormous size, wlio prey upon them.
