This was an action of trespass, brought by the Trustees, in whom the property of CV. rist Church- yard was vested, against the defendant, for en- croaching on the Church- yard wall. This action is against the same person who was convicted last year of encroachment in the Blackfriats- road, near Christ Church, by erecting a small portico in front of his house ( a linen- draper's), and which has since been pulled down and shaved away, with part of his projecting wall. The present action was brought for building the wall on the back of his house upon the Church- yard wall.— The title to the wall occupied a considerable time in ptoof; but it appeared that the Church- yard was originally given by the will of a certain per- son, of the name of Marshall, to Trustees and their successors. The title was regularly traced down to the present plaintiffs; and it appeared that al- out 50 years ago, the then Trustees built the wall instead of a wooden fence, which for. merly enclosed the Church- yard. The defendant, by his Counsel, contended, that he had a right to build upon the wall by the Building Act, as a party- wall. Lord Ellenborough said, it was the good fortune of that Act to be understood by nobody, not even the framers of it could reconcile it to common sense, and it'was not for a Court to attempt to inoculate it with a sense which did not belong to it. — It was, however, clear, that the plaintiff could have no right to take possession of a wall which was exclusively the property of others. The Jury found for the plaintiff. HUTCHINSON, QtU TAM, tl. PIPER. This was an action against the Dorking Bank for usury, the same caie which was tried last Spring Assices. The alleged usury was stated to h ive b ' en committed in he> r transactions with P T. Botham. Esq. a Gert'lemin wel) known in this county, formerly an active VTig- isTate, anj a . Candidate to represent this Borough in Parlii- ment. The tr irisactiorts took p1 ice in the years 9, and 10, and w? re stated to bp as follows: That when Mr. Botham discounted a- iy B lis with them, thev charged him the usual discount, but instead of cash, they gave him other bills not due, which they g ive an I ch irged as money, some of which identical bil's he had previously discounted with them, thus paying discount twice over. The Counsel selected six cases of this sort, but failed in the proof of any one of them. The plaintiff was therefore nonsuited. Sir William Garrow, the S » licitor. General, ar- rived express from Norwich, as Cotiiual for the defendantin this case. At the York Assizes, Elizabeth WoorWr an. l Su sannah Lyall, were charged with the wilful murder of a new born nt ile infant. The following is a brief hut correct sketch of this extraordinary case :—- On 12th March, the wife of G. N- edham, of Black- burn, near Rotherham, was delivered of two children, a giil . ind a boy. The former was perfectly formed, but in the boy there was a deficiency in the superior part of the head, the brain not being protected by anv bony matter, but nv; rely covered by a membrane. Wood- ger, a midwife, and the other prisoner, conceiving that it was not likely to live, formed the design of putting a period to its existence, which was accomplished by drowning* it in an earthen vessel. It was then buried, but was taken up again on 17th March, for the pur. pose of the Coroner's Inquest. The Surgeon who 1 examined the body stated, that the child was perfect. ' ly formed, except his head, which was deficient in the superior part an inch and a half. Any pressure upon it must have produced dangerous consequences ; and he did not think the child could have survived more than two h » urs. The prisoners used no concealment, and it was clear they acted under mistaken anprehen- sions as to the law, and thought they were justified in what they did. Several ladies gave the prisoners a most excellent character for humanity. The evidence having been gone through, his Lordship in his address to the jury, said---" I think this prosecution may be of great use to the public, in removing an erroneous opinion, that the law allows the light of deliberate!"' taking away the life of a human being under any cir- cumstances whatever. It is therefore highly neces- sary that the contrary should be known." The Jury f() und the prisoners guilty, hut recommended them to mercy, on account of the mistaken notion under which they acted. His Lordship said hi would not pass sentence upon the prisoners, but should write by that flight's post to the Secretary of State, to nyike a re- presuntation ot the case to the Prince Regent. — gg> e » i" aj — At the Leicester Assizes, J. Batson and T. Tan" ser, charged with having written a treasonable and hreatening paper; and T. Thornelow und R. Poach, for sticking the same on the wall of a but. cher's shop in South Kilworth, were acquired. The learned Judge condemned iti strong language the eagerness and precipi'ation with which sucll prosecutions were entered into ; the whole, he said, was the result of the grossest ignorance and im- becility, and ought to have jjeen treated with contempt. Three of the parties could neither write nor read.— J. Pickering, the ostler at the Bell Inn in Leicester, brought an afti in to recover the keep of three horses left in his care for about a month, for which he demanded thrse guineas; but the decision of the Judge, which it is of mportance should be known, was, that ostlers, chamber- maids, waiters, coachmen, and guards cannot compulsively obtain ' rom their master's customers any remunera'ion for their services, and that it is quite optional whether they shall be paid any thing, and how much, J. L'e, for stealing a mare, was convifted and received sentence of Death. ' He stole the mare in the night of the 19 h " It. Two days after he was apprehended ; on Thursday his trial came on, and he was convifted and sentenced ; so that in less than four days thf robbery was committed, the prisoner apprehended, the horse recovered, and the prisoner convifted. LONDON POLICE, AUCUST 1. MUSIC AND BELLES LETTRES. GUILDHALL.— Yesterday two young men, named Vaughan and Knowles, were charged by the patrole of St. Dunstan's in the West, with disturb- ing the neighbom hood at an unseasonable hour. It appeared by the acknowledgment of Knowles, that he is a printer, and of Vaughan, that he i « a musical man, and in the employment of a music- seller near the Exchange. The man of letters and the man of harmony, on a return from their night's gambols, through Flee - street, were amusing them- selves with inspecting the door- plates in the street, and ringing the house- bells of Mr. Gosling, the Banker, and several other respectable inhabitants. The patrole, however, very properly interrupted their entertainment, and sent the compositor of types and the composer of harmonies, to comp'ie themselves in the City orchestra at the Poultry Compter, in order to reheane their perform tnces before the Magistrate, and to have the proofs of their works duly corrected. Alderman Atkins considering this kind of frolic pregnant with the nio^ t serious mis- chief to families, who, alarmed in sleep with the apprehension of fire, might jump from their win- dows ' twixt sleeping and waking, before they had time to discover the real cause of disturbance, bound both the parties over to appear at the Ses- sions, and take their trial for the misdemeanor. INQUEST.— On the 18th ult. an Inquest was held at the Barley- Mow, in Nottingharp, on jhe body of R. Bates, who, it appeared from the evi- dence of Ann Wood, had, on the aforesaid even- ing, been craving charity at the dooi ot the Judge'! lodgings, and s . id he had fasted two d iys, when she gave him two small bits of venison, each - f which he swallowed whole ; she then gave him a glass of ale, and while dt inking it h- fell down, became insensible, and shortly espinu.

The Swiftsure sailed from Gibraltar on the 22d ult. at which time the French General I. aval, with 6000 infantry and COO horse, was in sight of that garrison, and had interposed his force between it and the '- laniards under Ballasferos, effectually cutting off their communication with that place. It was. eipeijUd that the French would attack Ballasteros and endeavour to destroy his force; but as Ballasteros had about SOOO troops with him at Torgiceca on the 21st ult. no apprehensions were entertained of the result of an en* gagensent The Swiftsure brings accounts that, the expedi- tion to the eo! st of Catalonia had sailed from Majorca:, about 8000 British and German troops formed part of the expedit'on, which > vith the Spaniards that had joined them at Majorca, made the t ital about 13,000 troops. News of great importarce may be shortly expected from that quarter The letters by the Serapis, from Malta, are to the 19th June. The harvest in Sicily has been extremely abundant, both in the corn fields, and the vjne yards. The plague had rcged with great violence both at Smyrna and Constantino- ple ; and at the latter, appeared to be penetrating into the inferior. The Algetine cruizers detain all Spanish vessels, and send their crews into slavefy. On seeing the arrival of the Pope at Paris an- nounced some time since in the French Papers, we expressed some anxiety to know the objeft of bringing him there, being perfedfly convinced that it must have been done with the view to make him subservient to some new grand stroke of Bona- parte's policy. We learn now, from a highly in formed Gentleman, just arrived from France, that it is generally supposed at Paris that his Holiness has at length been iriducedtoyieidto the persuasions and severities which have so long been made use of to - renderhim more tradable to Bonaparte ; and that the first act br which he would be called upon to manifest this disposition, would be by giv- ing his benediction to the new kiogr'nm of Poland, — The Catholic religion being the national reli- gion of Poland, it is supposed that the re- establish- ment of the nation will be highly gratifying to his Holiness, and that he will readily second Bo- naparte, by giving Jus sanflion, to the measure. It is said at Paris, tbat the Pope will henceforth re- side in that city, an being the grand capital of Catholic BurOpe'.— Pihf. Government, in order to check the escape of French prisoners, as also the guinea and smuggling system, gave orders, a few days since, for the seizure of all sjailies of a certain description, car- rying eight oars ; seven'eeft were seized at Deal, ten at Folkestone, Sandgate, & c. They are- a beautiful description of boats, about forty feet lone, painted on the outside so as to elude the sight at sea in the flight; so neadyand lightly cors- ruffed that nothing can catch them, and in calm weather they can row over to the French shore in two hyurs. We have some accounts from Cadiz of an un- favourable kind. The Government has been so much alarmed by the discontents in the place, and thexshells of'the enemy, as to have deliberat- ed upon the removal of the public authorities to Ceuta. The range of the shot from Cabezuela is over nearly half the place, and the Countess of Altami- na h:: s received a wound in the breast from the rubbish, set in action by a shell which had fell in- to her apartment. Precautions are taking by co- vt ring the building with sacks of wool, to pre- vent the intrusion of these unwelcome and pon- derous visitors. ' The whole expedition which is to proceed to the East of Spain, consists of about 5000 men, 500 of which had arrived from Lisbon. The Garrisons of Cadiz, and the Isla, compos, ed a force of thirty thousand men, including Spa- niards, Fnglish, and Portuguese, and comprehend- ing eight thousand volunteers. The number Of French continuing the besieging army, was not more than 7" 00, but they had entrenched them- selves with so much labour and skill, as to render their situation almost as impregnable, to use the mi- litary simile introduced into our letters, as the Rock of Gibraltar.

THE GREAT VICTORY. The intelligence of this most splendid viiSory over M irmont, was brought by the Sybil yacht, which left Corunna on the 28thj and landed a Gentleman of the name of Jackson at Lyming- \ ton, by whom the Cfoiunna Extraordinary Gazette 1 was transmitted to Government, ^ addition to !

Thev con- tain what mty be considered, in the present state o<" our relations with America, highly gratifying intelligence. The inhabitants of Boston have ;; come forward in a most intrepid and manly man- ner and publicly declared their repugnance against the President's doct ine of war with Great j Britain. Mr. Randolph has also published an ; Address to h'S. construents, which we will ven. ture to pronounce to he one of the most eloquent productions which ever came from the Press in America. It breathes the purest spirit of patriot- ism and peace, and happv would it be for the • Americans if their Councils were directed by such A field of wheat belonging to Farmer Lewis, of Purton, Wilts, claims the admiration of the sur- rounding country, persons far and near resorting to view it. His crop of wheat last year complete- lyfailed j but without fresh ploughing, sowing, or manure, there has this year sprung up from each old root from 60 to 66 stalks, each bearing as many ears, and these ears are as much as five inches in length, fall of the finest grain imaginable; and, what is more astonishing, a new stalk is springing from the first joint. The nature of the grain seems, however, to have changed by being so long in the ground : it is now as fine a piece of Lammas wheat as ever was witnessed ; and what stems came up last yeat produced remarkably bearded ears. The burthen appears miraculously abundant. A man in Liverpool has proposed to undertake the famous Barclay ta; k of walking 1000 miles in 3000 hours, at the rate of a mile in each successive hour. This has often been attempted, but has never yet been performed by any person, . except Captain Barclay himself. The offer* we btdieve, has not yet been accepted, nor any proposals made to him on the ssbjeft. He is 40 years of age, and not remarkably strong or robust. A shark of a considerable size was caught in the herring nets, on Wednesday night, off the Heads of Ayr. A most shocking murder was lately committed in Barbadoes, of which the following are tbe par- ticulars :— A negro man was about to be sold by His mistress, and having heard of this intention l> e questioned his owner on the subject, which teing affirmed, he cut her throat, and stabbed her in several other parts, and then hung himself. that document, we have to communicate toj- day tha following: Extract of a Dispatch from Lord Wellingtin to Gene- ral Castanos, which arrived at Ferrol on Tuesday, July 28, A. M. immediately tefore the tailing of the Sybil cutter,: " On the 22d July. - 812, the French army, un- der the command of Marshal Mtrmont, was com- pletely routed near S ilamanca. by the allied army, t* which was united the third division of the S. h Spanish army. • « ' The enemy lost many eag'es, almost all their baggage, and an immense quantity of military stores. Their loss in killed, wounded, and prison, ers, is'estimated at from 10 to J2,008 men : the lajtter being 4,000, among, whom is General Bon- net, who is also wounded. The routed army re- tired by Alba de Tormes, and the victorious arrry was in close pursuit." It is reported by a second dispatch, that' the enemy's loss is greater ; and the British loss is es- timated at between three and four thousand men. — Don Julian Sanchez displayed great gallantry ;• out of 1,400 horse, which he commanded, 700, feli upon the field of batrle.

Haylett and Bro- thers, Austin Friars; it confirms in every in parti- cular the dispatch < aid to be sent from Lord Wei. lington to General Castanos, but it does not add a single circumstance to the intelligence." The following are from our Correspondents at the out- ports : — " PORTSMOUTH, AUG. 4— This morning, be- tween three and four o'clock, the Sybil yacht, from Corunna, landed Mr. Jackson, an Officer, at Lymington, with dispatches from Lord Welling- ton, and the Governor of Ferrol, containing an account of the defeat of Marmont, with 10,000 men,. & e The Sybil left on the 28th ult."

" PLYMOUTH, AUG. 3— We are all in high spi. rits here at the receipt of the good news from Co- runna via Falmouth, brought by the Speculator lugger, in four days, with dispatches from Sir H. Douglas, dated Benevente, which states the'en- tire defeat of Marmont's and Bonnet's' army, af- ter a hard fought battle of two days, viz. the 22d and 23d July, between Toro and Tordesillas, which ended in a glorious victory on the part of. the immortal Lord Wellington. The enemy, be- sides, killed and wounded, have lost 4000 prison- ers, and 25 pieces of cannon, and were in full re- treat for Vallodolid." An extras of a letter from a Gentleman, high in the Commissariat department, dated the 25th of July, says : " We have this morning received accounts, that Lord Wellington has had a glorious adlion with Marmont, near Medina del Campo ( the writer is mistaken in the place) defeated him, and had taken 4000 prisoners.

The number lost by the French was 2700 in killed only. The French retreated with great precipitation." The above seems to be an account of the share which the Spaniards had in an adion previous to the grand battle on the 22d.

Some weeks since, when the scarcity of oar- meal, See- was becoming every day mote alarm- ing, Mr. JOHN JOHN- STON, an eih* nent* brewer, >- f Lurgan, in the County of Armagh ( a district: abounding more with small' and poor ma mfV- • turers, than any other neighbourhood in 1 i t ian :), had a. large stock of kiln- dried bar'??, which he had laid in for the purpo- e of making in the or- dinary course of his busin-.' ss, deeply atfefted by the universal cry of want arid sea retry, he had the whole ground into meal, and sold the ssoie at prime cost I ('- when he might have had lis per cwt. profit on it wholesale), in quantities not ex- ceeding one steti'e to one person, and from that down- wards, in smaller quantities, as suited the purse of the purchaser ; and all who wanted, far or near, were supplied so long as it lasted. But, alas! when it was done, the. rapacity of the- farmer, and the rnealrnonger, once mote rear- ed its head, and prices the most enormous were again demanded. Mr. JOHNSTON determined to continue that re- lief, which be. had already afforded ( PROVIDENCE having blessed his industry with the means of keeping: puce with the benevolent conceptions of his mind) ; indefatigable in his pnrstii's, he, al- most in an instant, obtained a supply of oa- m . d, which he sold in manner and form above- men- tioned, at the rate of is. 2d. per stone. This supply was likewise exhausted, and the poor were again at the mercy of aforesaid harpies,— the farmer and the meal monger. This once more called forth the energy of rht- ir kind and considerate friend. Mr. JOHNSTON agaia obtained an adequate supply for tbe consurnpt f this week, at the former moderate, price; and vfiji' continue so to do, until a plentiful harvest shall realize the present propitious prospefts, and ren- der his exertions no longer necessary.

Tt> the EP2T0S of tie BftLFAST CHRONICLE. SIR— Amongst other difficulties attending our Paper Circulating Medium, there is one of great inconvenience and l° ss to the poor in respefl to Forged Notes ; an instance of which will appear in my case, which I request leave to state as follows: I happened to take for a genuine No'?, one from my neighbour the other day, which turned out to he a Jorgery; upon discovering this I asked my neighbour to refund the amount; he refined. 1 applied to a magistrate, who saiJ, " that unless I would swear that my neighbour Inetv it to ft forged when he eave it t') me, and also sjive upon oat h some plausible reason why I thought he Inew it, j. that he knew of no o her legal steps I could take, | to ground a prosecution on, for the recovery of ; the amount." This I could not do, having no such suspicion, and although my neighbour con- fessed that it was probable he gave me the very same Note, and that I offered to swear he did, it seems I have no remedy, and must lose the amount, nnd that, to a poor man like me, in such hard times, is extremely distressing. Nor am I the only sufferer ; there are hundreds groaning under similar distress by forged Notes, and it occurs to me, that if persons passing such, whether to their knowledge' or nor, were compellable to re- fund the same in good Notes, upon the affidavit of the receiver, and one or more credible witness or witnesses, that more tan would be taken in re- ceiving Bank Notes, and forgers would not be so successful in cheating the poor. If a law is extant to redress such cases, perhaps the insertion of mine in your extensive paper, will induce some humane lawyer to point it out, through the same nedium, and thereby be the friend of A Pool MAN. Ballymoney, August 8. LONDON FASHIONS FOR AUGUST. From I. a little Atsemblee. Coloured sarsuets trimmed with lace, are very much worn both for full dress, and dinner parties ; for the former the Clarence front is universal. This new and most elegant addition to full dress is now worn over a sarsnet gown, it is shaped at the bosom esactly as the gown, and is also the same length in front; ji flounce of lacc laid on the sarsnet rather full goes round the dress. This dreiw is said to have been introduced by her Majesty, who has frequently appeal- ed in it. Pale pink, grass green, lilac, Maria Louisa blue, and buff, are the colours most prevalent, the two latter ar « highest in estimation. Lace was never mor » worn tban at present. For dinner dresses, sprigged muslins over coloured sars- m- t slips, ore much worn, and liave a very olegant eflect.— T; it drcafcte aru mostly urjdt high pu th « - boulder, « od sT'i- tre, an gained something in length, as IDS also the waist, is tisnallv disolayed in full dress. i For morning dresses, the most recent invention is the ! Grecian peasant's jacket, svith a netticoat to correspond : the form of this dress is extremely simple, it is gaged round the neck in four parts, and confined to the waist hy the petti- coat which is worn over it, the sleeves are very full, and aie also gaged at the waist. The Polish twill is alto much worn for morning dresses : it is a sort of chambray, and can hardly be distinguished from sarsnet. For full drew, coloured crapes, embroidered round the bottom in large wreaths of flowars, have a very elegant ap- pearance ; the emhroidery. is mostly of worsted, but we have noticed a few in coloured silks. White crape dancing dresses, richly embroidered ? n silver, are also much worn, hut the robe n In , » r/ 7;> « is the TTv> st tasteful and elegant; it is made of white crape, studded with small steel stars, the form is that of a simple frock, and the waist is somewhat shor'er than is now worn for other dresses, round the bottom is a light embroider)' of miniature steel spangle.

English Monthly Agricultural Report. The latter hay- harvest is scarcely yet finished in many parts ; the quantity as great as ever known, but most of it damaged, and of inferior condition. The turnip lands have worked well, but sowing is not yet completed ; the forward tur- nips and cabbages appear healthy. The fallows in a mellow and friable state. All lands through- out the island, capable of growing a crop of con, have been applied to that purpose. The stoutest wheats have been a good deal beaten down by the rains and thunder- storms, whilst the light crops upon poor lands have been apparently improved. Mildew and smut have been discovered within the last fortnight, with a considerable quantity of brands or burnt ears.. The mildew or blue mould has been early and universal upon the corn this year, although un- noticed till of late ; but, as far as the limited per- sonal inspection of the present reporter has extend- ed, corn has never been more clean and free from vermin and impurities, under such circumstances, than in the present season. This is probably to be attributed to the unusual mildness of the N. E. winds, and to their short intervals of duration, al- though so frequent, a circumstance most'favour- able and preservative of the crop of wheat. In various parts the crops in funeral are most luxuri ant and bulky, and a friend from the coast of Sussex boasts of long and large ears of wheat, with great plenty of them. Throughout the coun- try the ears of wheat are said to be of moderate sine, and the promise for both corn and straw to be considerable. Chilling N. E. winds, the bane cf vegetation, have detracted much from the pre- sent, which might otherwise have been the largest crop of corn ever grown in this country. These frequent and unavoidable accidents add unspeak- able for. ee to the thousand arguments in favour of a bill of general disclosure, an advantage which Scotland- has enjoyed for more than a century, and to which so much of its prosperity is to be attributed. Rye among the best pf the crops, and harvest expected within a fortnight inthe'for- wardest counties. Accounts of harvest in foreign parts thus far satisfactory. Heavy complaints from too many quarters of tenancy- at- will and short leases, those lamentable* preventions of improvement, and poisoners at the very source of public and private interest. Rent as high as the times will bear, but long leases, the power of transfer, no obligation to summer fal- low, and no absurd pettifogger's restrictions The above complaints are mixed with high en- comiums upon certain landlords, most particular- ly of Norfolk and Scotland. Of potatoes the report generally satisfactory.— The fruits much blighted, and the same malady must necessarily have extended to the hops. The wool trade at a stand, nothing having transpired at any of the marts as a sufficient guide. The oak- bark harvest was successfully finished. cooflig- atiop, The whole of the builjinnrs ; n- e burnt down except the small frrn: wing to Ar ' V itreet, an ' considerable exertion was necessary to pres"' ve the different valuable boil ings around The premises and the whole of the men's tools are insured to an extent' which comole'elv cvers the loss, and the books and a considerable part of the fur" i- » ir" and stock are saved.- r- The Magi- strates, Commissioners of Police, and Constables, did all thev could to preserve order and take care of the proper'v.

GLASGOW, Atrc. 1— It is with the most un- feigned grief, however, we have to mention, that sev- n young men were buried in the ruins The nam s of the unfortunate sufferers are, Thomas Edie, clerk in a warehouse; Andrew Dougal, a eardener ; James Falconer, a chair- maker j Janes Rentoul, a painter; David M'Gregor, a wright; William Henry, of the Aberdeen Packet; and one body unclaimed. Mr. Walter Hanna, flesher. and Mr. John Caldwell, clockmaker, were very much burnt, and stveral others hurt, but none of them dangerously.

GLASGOW, JULY 30.— Last flight, betwiit nine and ten o'clock, an alarming fire br- ke out in the work shops conneAed with Mr. John Retd'f ex tensive cabinet warehouse, in Virginia. street. It had made considerable progress before it was dis- covered, and from the quantity of wood and other combustible materials in the building, the flimes, in a few minutes, burst from the roof with great fury. So rapid was its progress, that the awful illumination it produced over the town was the first thing that gave the inhabitants the alarm From the construction of the building, and the confusion that arose in removing the furniture, the firemen, although soon on the spot, and al though they directed the engines in the most pow- erful manner, could do little to stop its progress. The water was at first but scanty, but intimation having Ween sent to the engine man at Dalmar nock to set the engine to work, a plentiful supply was soon obtained from the fire- plugs. When the beams of the main roof gave way, the weight of slates and brick work which came down with it, carried all before it to the bottom, and we are loi rv to say that considerable fears are entertained tor the lives of two or three persons that are a mis. sing, lest they should have been buried in the ruins. Mr. Hannah, a son of Mr. Hannah, flesher, has been much burnt, and several others were huif, but none of them are considered as in a dargeiou* slate. EAST INDIES. By the recent arrivals from India, Calcutta and Bombay Journals to the close of January, and Madras Papers to the 1st of March, have been re- ceived. Letters from Batavia state, that Col. Gillespie, the commander of the forces, was dangerously ill. The troops remaining in garrison at Batavia, were the 59th regiment, the 5th and 6th batta- lions of Bengal Volunteers, and two companies of artillery, with sick and convalescents of various corps. A colonial corps was organizing in Java. A report had reached Batavia of the m issacre of the Dutch garrison of Palambing hy the na- tives. The Sovereign of that place had a profit- able contract with the Dutch for tin, and on re- ceiving intimation that Batavia had changed mas- ters, lie murdered the garrison, aiid possessed himself of their effects. Previous to this, an ex- pedition, under Capt. Phillips, had sailed from Ba- tavia against Palambang. The coffee found in the store- houses at Java is estimated at 40,000 tons. The quantities of rice, sugar, pepper, and other spices, are also very large. Subaltern's shares of prize- money ha3 sold as high as j£ 400 each ; and a Captain's was esti- mated to be worth £ 750. The beautiful country mansion of former Dutch Governors at Burten- zorg, including a large and profitable estate, had been purchased by Mr. Raffles, for a lack of ru- pees. Mr. A. Seton, Governor of Penang, was visiting the principal forts and settlements in Java in December last. Col. Baptiste, with a well- appointed force, had been actively eirp'oyed iri the North of Hindos- tan against Durgeon Sal, a Rajpoot Chieftain, whose capital and fort of Bahdur Ghur, he had taken by stoim. Durgeon Sal hid, however, found means to escape with a few of his partizans, and the greater part of his treasure. Mulhar Rao, the infant son of Holkar, had heen raised to his father's throne; but notwithstanding the solicitations of the Bae, who aAed as Regent, the Court « f Poonah had refused the kheblaut of investiture, urtil a certain sum due to the Peshwa, had been paid. For this sum, as well as for some troops to quell the mutinous Sirdars, who had in siigared the ba'talions to revolt, the Bae had ap- plied to Ameer Khan ; hot the latter had declined both requests. The Bae's Minister, had in con- sequence disbanded a part of the military force, raised new battalions, and puhisnea those who had conspired aguinst the infant Sovereign and his mo- ther's life. Mr. Stephenson, a Cadet in the Bombay Estab- lishment, was killed in December in a duel. A verdift of Manslaughter being found against his antagonist, and his second, thry were tried at the ensuing Bombay Assizes, fownd guilty, and sen- tenced to three mouths' imprisonment; and Mr. S——' s second to four. A shock of an earthquake was on the 28 h De- cember felt throughout the presidency of Calcut. ta ; it was accompanied by two distinil undula- tory movements of the earth, attended by a loud explosion. Much alarm was excited, but no da- mage wa; done. Capt. Bartholomew, of the Mary, of Calcutta, in his voyage to the Prince of Wales's Island, hav- ing landed with five of his crew on the Lesser Andaman, were all murdered. The Bombay Courier, of Jan. 4, says: " On Thursday afteinoOn an atrocious murder was com- mitted in a house in the Bendy Bazar. Four Hin- doos, under the pretence of having coin to dispose of, decoyed into the house, Mulchund Cassindass, and his mettah, Nana Purberam, who had with him a considerable sum of money. Some circum- stances having excited suspicions in the neighbour- hood that all was not right, the diior, which was • secured by a padlock, was broken open, and on the floor of an inner apartment the bodies were found, with small ropes drawn round their necks, and a large wound in the belly of each, from which the entrails were hanging. The murderers, who es- caped with their plunder, have not yet been appre- hended." ' AMERICA. Extract of a Letter from a Trans- Atlantic Correspondent. " You will have heard, perhaps, before the ar- rival of this, of our expedition to Canada. Laugh as Englishmen will at these Tankey resentments, I can assure you, Sir, that all these circumstances, give to America the strangest dash of her John Bull temper. These transient flashes of the pub- lic spirit, mark the interest which a free- born mob takes in its national affairs. As far as I have been able todevelope the American charac- • to war ; and this proneosity has been sh'rrnetied rather than abated, bv the manner in which she h is been reined in. The forbe: » - ance of her Go- vernment, in respect to France has produced one good effect— it has fostered and cherished in the national mind, a risio? antipathy to the Fiench character, which is dramatized and caricatured, exactly the same as in England. The wide and ild Atlantic rolls between them without effect. America derives from her sire those qualities, over which climate establishes no controul. She possesses, in common wi> h her parent, a contempt of French manners, and a defiance of French power. This is exemplified by a thousand in. stances every day ; but by none so strongly as by the works of her ablest and most popular writers. During a la^ e ferment, stirred up against the English influence, the French Ambassador ap- peared at the Assembly. On this occasion, one of our periodical writers, who is read as far ! as America extends, gave the following sketch of Monsieur's dancing abilities—' I have been con- siderably employed in calculations on this subject ( dancing) and by the most accurate computa- tion, I have determined that a Frenchman passes, at least, three fifths of his time between the hea-" vens and the earth, and partakes eminently of the nature or a gossamer, or soap bubble. One of these jack- o'- lantern heroes, in taking a figure, which neither Euclid or Pythagoras himself could demonstrate, unfortunately wound himself — I mean his foot— his better part— into a lady's cobweb muslin robe ; but perceiving it at the in- stant, he sat himself a spinning another way, like a top ; unravelled his step, without omitting one angle or curve, and extricated himself without breaking a thread of the lady's dress ! He then sprung up like a sturgeon, crossed his feet four times, and finished his wonderful evolution by quivering his left leg, as a cat does with her paw, when she has accidentally dipped it in water.

The following letter was written by the late Ro- bert Heron, in a moment of extreme bodily suffer- ing and mental agony, addressed to the Literary Fund.

" Ever since I was eleven years of age I have mingled with my studies, the labour of teaching or of writing, to support and educate myself, " During about twenty years, while I was in constant or occasional attendance at the University of (" dinburgh, I tauebt and assisted young persons, at all periods, in the course of education ; from the alphabet to the highest branches of Science and Literature. " I read a course of Leflures on the Law of Nature, the Law of Nations, the Jewish, the Gr^ cian, the Roman and the Canon Law, and then oh" Feudal Law ; and on the several forms of Muni- cipal Jurisprudence, established in Modern Europe. I printed a Syllabus of these Leitures, which was approved. They were intended as introduftory to the professional study of Law, and to assist Gentlemen, who do not study it professionally, in the understanding of History. " I translated Fourcroy's Chemistry twice, from both the second and the third editions of the ori- ginal; Fourcroy's Philosophy of Chemistry ; Sa- varys Travels in Greece ; Dumourier's Letters ; Gesner's Idylls in part ; an abstradi of Zimmer- man on Solitude, and a great diversity of smaller pieces. " I wrote a journey through the Western parts of Scotland, which has passed through two edi- lions ( a History of Scotland in six vols. 8vo. j a Topographical account of Scotland, which has been several times reprinted ; a number of com- munications in the Edinburgh Magazine; many Prefaces and Critiques; a Memoir of the Life of Burns the Poet, which suggested and promoted the subscription for his family, has been many times reprinted, and formed the basis of Dr. Currie's life of him, as I learned by a letter from the Doc- tor to one of his friends ; a variety of jtux d'esprit, in verse and prose; and many abridgments of large works. " In the beginning of 1799 I was encouraged to come to London. Here I have written a great multitude of articles in almost every branch of Science and Literature ; my education at Edin- burgh having comprehended them all. The Lon- don Review, the Agricultural Magazine, the An- ti- jacobin Review, the Monthly Magazine, the Universal Magaaine, the Public Characters, the Annual Necrology, with several other periodical works, contain many of m/ communications. In sUch of those publications as have been reviewed, I can shew that my anonymous pieces have been distinguished with very high praise. I have written also a short S/ stem of Chemistry in one vol. 8vo and I published, a few weeks since, a sma. ll work called " Comforts of Life," of which the first editionw as sold in one week, and the se- cond edition is now in rapid sale. " In the newspapers— the Oracle, the Porcu- pine, when it existed, the General Evening Post, the British Press, the Courier, & c— I have pub. lished many Reports of Debates in Parliament ; and, I believe, a greater variety of light fugitive pieces than I know to have been written by any one other person. I have written also a variety of compositions in the Latin and the French languages, in favour of which I have been honoured with the testimo- nies of liberal approbation. " I have invariably written to serve the cause of religim, morality, pious Christian education, and good order, in the most direct manner. I have considered what I have written as mere trifles, and have incessantly studied to qualify my- ; elr for something better, i can prove that I have, for many years, read and written, ORe day with another, from twelve to sixteen hours a- d . y. As a human being, I have not hern free from follies and errors. But the r^ C'ir of rr> v lifi- has b;- erj ten? p ® rate, laborious, bumble, q iiet, and, to the uttipst of my power, hf neficent. I can prove the general tenor of my wiitings to have be n candid, and ever adapted to exhibit the most favourable views of the abilities, ( Jisposilions, and exertions of otheVs. 41 For these last ten months I have b- en brought to the very ex'(¥ unity of bodily and pecuniary dis- tress.

This Society, anxious to saiisf y the curiosity of the public, as well as to c. insu't the fame of their late illustrious member, by th? publication of this colleAion, commited to Pio. fessor Monk and Mr. Blomfield the charge of ex- trafling and editing whatever was fit to meet the public eye. These gentleman have bc." n above two years occupied in this task, and have now completed a volume, containing all that was left by Porson, concerning the Gret k Poets. His oS- servations are digested and arranged by the ed tors in the mode most convenient to the reader ; and ait additional value is given to the publication, hy two copious Indexes. One, of the authors, amend- ed and illustrated ; the other, of the subjects neat- ed. The volume is not a large one, but the in it- ter contained in it, if expanded in the ordinary mode adopted by Casaubon, Bentley, Dawes, Valckenaer, Rurhnken, & c. in their Miscellaneous Works and Epistola Ciiiic « , would fill many vo- lumes. In the correlations of the fragments in Athen* us, Porson has given specimens of his cri- tical acuteness, aided by his astonishing memory and learning, that exceed all belie!. And a greater number of these interesting remains of the Gre, 1c stage, are is this publication restored to their ori ginal purity, than'h is been efFefled by the whole host of critical scholars, th* tthela » t two centuries have produced. This book is beautifully prin'ej at the Cambridge University press, in Greek types, ordered expressly for this purpose, and ca^ t after the models given by the late Professor him- self.
