BATTLE OF SALAMANCA. PRIVATE CORRESPONDENCE. « ' SALAMANCA, JULY 26— You will be glad, no douht, to have a few details respefling the battle of Salamanca, which hss been in every respeft the most brilliant affair this or any British army has been engaged in. I will not attempt to give you all the different movements, but to point out the leading features which have charafteiised this glo- rious day. " The enemy having been reinforced, made a feint to cross the Douro at Toro, but immediately when he thought Lord Wellington's attention was direfled to that point, pushed along the right bank to Tordesillas, and in the night crossed his whole army at and near that place. The allied army moved to Canisal with an advance at Castragon, and the advanced posts came in contafl at the lat- ter on the morning of the 19th, and the enemy ac- tually cannonaded us into the position at Canisal! « ' On the evening of the 20th, Marshal Marmont moved his whole army by their left, with an in- tention of turning our right flank. This was done just before dark, and when diy broke next morn- ing he bad the satisfaction of finding the British line drawn out opnisi'f*. and either to fi? hr or to manoeuvre ash" chose. He afain nroe ed » H by his left, and of cr> ilrs » L'vt Wellington k » n'. pace with him, which ore « » n'e 1 an » x'raord'narv eight— two lareje nr- nies marching paralM to each other as if by mutual consent, an! occasionally cannimdina; each other as oot) or'nnirii » s offer?*. This flank movement continued funward< of three leagues, when the A'li » s haltH about that distance of the p osition in front of Salamanca, tnd the French continued th"; r route to nsss the Toms at Alba and H'lerta. This thev did on the 21st, and Lord Wellington, on that evening, likewise passed the river, nnd took no a nnsitim covrin^ the town of Silamanca, and defending the Ciudad Rodri^ o road. " We encamped 1 » te at night In the most tre- mendous thun ler st^ rm T ever witnessed, which added to the pifluresqus effel of the thine i but could not he exallv styled, as Bmanarte dM the one which occurred when he crossed the Dinube, " the fnremuner of a 4* v p- lori- ius to the French army." So violent ws< the of the thunder storm, that uowards of J> 1 TVawoons were maimed by the cavalrv horses hr » tkincrlnose ; many of the latter galloped off in all direflions, and some never returned. " At day- lijht on the 2? d, th » enemv b- tran skirmishing in our front,' and their calnrms of in- fantry and cavalrv were seen in motion, * ooarent- ly still moving to the left. We had a wood in our front, and the enemy having one direfllv on his left, his movements were in some measu^ conceal- ed from us, and rendered doubtful. But uoon getting more extended to his left, we had a clear view of the movements of his columns. Marmont then commenced manoeuvring, and endeavoured, bv the uncertainty of his motions, to distral Lord Wellington's attention, and draw our force to points where h> only meant to threaten. But there Lord Wellington shewed himself more than equal to the French Marshal, and counterafled all his plans.— We had a deal of cannonading during the whole forenoon. At one point the artillery of i our division commenced operations upon some i heavy columns of the enemy, and the long six- pounders sent the shot into the very centre of them. They moved further off, judging, no doubt, that the better part of valour was di? cretion. " This sort of work continued the whole fore- noon, and we lost considerably from the cannr) nade which they incessantly kept up, upon one or other part of the line. About two o'clock we were or. j dered to move so the rioht, and form in two lines i upon the flank of the 4 h division, becoming hv this means the right of the whole line of infantry, j with the exception « f tbe third division. We rnide this movement under a heavy fire of shot and shells from the heights opposite, which the enemy had pushed on and taken possession of. " Now arrivd ' he critical moment wh; ch decid- ed the fate of the French army. Lord Wellington found the enemy still continuing to open to his left— their impertinence in cannonading us out im out of all patienc°, and, when an officer ar- rived with information that the enemy were still further off going to their left, he said—" Then, by G'd ! we will attack them." These words fell like a thu- derbolt on the French army, and in three hours they were in flight and confusion in all direftions, and those very guns which ha< J been firing upon us on their way to Salamanca, were escorted by British soldiers ; nto Sal rmanea. " The 3J division, nnder General Pak » nham, wheeh d forward their right, and came upon the left flink of the enemy, while the 5' h on their left, in two lines, advanced up the hill, unon which were formed the enemy's colu- nns, under cover of their cuns. Lord Wellington's words to one ' of our Generals were instantly put in execution-*— " You will attack them, and drive them to the Devil." Shot, shells, grape, and musketry, could not unsteady the step, or waver the line of the British infantry, nor did they even fire a shit un- til without 40 yards of the enemy, whose columns had formed into squares, and received them, the moment they surmounted the brow of the hill, with a fire of musketry, which was but once re- turned ; the line gave one general cheer, and dashed into the midst of the enemy ; they broke, and gave way, and the heavy cavalry rushing through the intervals between us, and the 3i di- vision charged hem, and added to the panic and slaughter. The 4th division, on our left, met with a flank fire, and were compelled to retire, but the 6th ( in reserve) coming up, carried the height they had attacke 1. Farther than this, as to the de ' of the business, I can give no account, except that eve^ y point was successfully forced, and the French army put to the r^ ut. An eagle and two standards, with four pieces of cannon, were taken by the 5' h division. " General Leith had broken the enemy's co- lumns, and was again ad/ ancing, when he was unfortunately wounded. " Nineteen pieces of cannon, 8000 prisoners, eagles, standards, haggage, ammunition, Sic. are the fruits of this splendid viflory. " Marmont is very badly wounded.—. Clausel, Bonnet, and Thornier, Le Gravier, and another General taken— he former just dying of his wounds. The French officers state their loss at 16, some say 18,000 men, and the army is panic struck. " Not an hour did it require to put the thing in execution ; it was absolutely like eleSricity : the people who were lying down, endeavouring to avoid the eff'fls of a heavy cannonode, sprung upon their legs, as if touched by a magic wand, and, without any alteration of position, without any forrpa'ion whatever, the British line instantly advanced up the heights, and drove every thing that appeared before them to pieces. And that same army which, with so much bravado had an- noyed, and apparently bullied us, were turned upon, defeated, and put to flight. Nothing was wanting but the word, and Marmont brought it l| upon himself, Lord Wellington says, " he forced | me to lick him." It was impossible to have » eea fellows go at the enemy as our soldiers did, with out being enthusiastic. Vt'lory never couid hav been doubtful." PRIVATE CORRESPONDENCE. EXTH ACT OP A LETTER FROM LISBON', AUG. 1. " Bv the nuMic accounts you will have be" n informed of the v- as- ions movements which lrave latelv been made by the opposing armies in the neighbourhood of Salamanca, and that the allied force had driven the enemy to the n^ rth bank of the Douro; on or about the 7th Mirmont was remforcd by Ronnetrs division, which Lord Wel- lington thought he had given enough to empl iv in Galacia, making the French force much su- perior in numbers. Lord W. exercised his usual caution, and acted as fearful of his opponent re- treating whenever he advanced, thereby inspiring Marmont with a fatal confidence ; much nvtrcs'i- verinf was made by both parties, until the pa- tience of the French General being exhausted or rendered confident by Lord W.' s timidity, and his own superiority of numbers, dashed forward with 50.001 men in close pursuit of the allied force, which retreated as in haste, giving every indication of giving up Salamanca; when Lord Wellington had arrived near a village called Ara- piles, abaut a league from the city, he halted, sending forward the third divison on the Citul td road, but with instructions to wheel off on the left when arrived at a certain point, and march in a certain direction, which led it on the left fl ink of the French army, strongly posted on an eminence. \ s soon as Lord Wellington ascertained its ap- proach, he advanced upon the attack of ' he point, and being immediately aided by the 3d division, acting on the enemy's flank, he was soon driven in for shelter towards his centre, which being in. stantly and vigorously attacked by our centre, which, in anticipation of this movement had been formed very strong, the victory was soon seen to be our's ; the fighting, however, continued des- perate for five hours, the troops on all sides pe: « forming prodigies of valour ; total darkness at length caused a cessation of bloodshed, but not until the French, distracted, dismayed, and bea- ten, were driven from the field, leaving 5000 kill- ed and wounded, and 6000 prisoners behind them ; a more signal defeat never was record", 1 • Marmont lost his right arm, and received another sev re wound ; General Thornier and another were killed ; Clawzel, Bonnet, and Camus severely wounded ; Foy, La Mirtiniere, Ferrier, and Gra- vier, are amongst the prisoners ; 20 pieces of cannon, several eagles, and three colours ; much of the baggage, and it is said, the military che- t, fell into the hands of the conquerors ; these we e the fruits of the first day. " Our 1st and ligh' division not being engaged, with upwards of 3000 fresh tr 1 ; ps which jo- n^ d after the battle, immediately pursued the enemy, and earlv r> n the 23 i routed Marmont on' of his bed. in which he had been placed in Alva de T ir- nnes; Lord Clinton saw the bed in which ' he mi. serab'e French Chief had suffered ampira inn ; ' tis not likely he can survive. On this day our cavalry attacked the rear- guard of 2000 m= n, killed 300, and sent the remainder pris mers to • he rear, The number of prisoners mad'" slice, is so variously reported I cannot state with accu- racy what it is; but letters from SaUminca till the 25; h, state the whole at 14,000. By prev. us . at rangem^ nt, Castanos, with his force, was ready to afl in the rear of the enemy, and must have greatly contributed to Increase the disasters of the defeat.

The popular feeling was manifested in a remarkable degree, St the west end pf the town, where, what with huzzaing, and cries of " Wellington and Viftory," the up- roar was incessant until long after midnight. Lord Clinton who brought the dispatchps from the Eatl of Wellington, announcing the late glo- rious viflory, is one of the oldest Baron"; of Eng- land— Baron Clinton and S » ye— creation, F b. 6, 1298. It is a barony in tee, descendible irt the fe- male as well as the male lire.

S. Crahtree, a cottori- spinner, tivihg at New. tbn. heath, near Stockport, was shot by some un^ known villains, and afterwards burnt and disfi- j gured so dreadfully, as to render it impossible for • his friends to identify him by any other ttieasts j than the watcfi which he had in his pocket! The : deceased was only in bis 18th year, asd is sup- ' posed to have been conn.- Sed with the deluded i association of Luddites, and to have fallen a. sa, j crifice to th* ir fears and suspicions. When- dis- i covered, he was lying on his face; and it is some what remarkable, at the distance of ten yards ( al- } though his relatives could not recognize him) he j- was known by a person in custoday for another j offence— who immediately said;* " Why, that's j Sam.

Every exertion is making by | the police for the discovery of the inhuman ruf- fians ; and from their laudable atfivity upon ^ itt occm rencec, we have every confidence' itirtli^ ir siic- cess.—( Cbest/ r Chronicle.) THE HARVEST— In every part of England, the harvest promises to be very abundant ;— throughout the county of Sussex a larger crop is expected, than has been known for many years— From Somersetshire they write, that the heavy luxuriance of the crops, in all the western coun. ties, has seltlomf- been equalled in tfie recollection of the, cdifc| t perfojs. Neither blight, smut, mil. "'•*' - - any, otjier' injurious visitation, has been . ift Yorkshire there is the most pro- t: of- a~ pleiitiful harvest. At ( Tjurov and throt) ghout the prin- Stieii ; the crops are as abundant as In Essex, . indeed, especially near Great Dunmow, ' considerable damage has been done by the late heavy rains.— The Corn harvest has commenced pretty generally in South Wales, ftnd our accounts from a' 1,1 quarters describe the crops to be uncommonly fine and productive. Corn met with, a. c. o. nsi. d?' rable reduction in price at Carlisle, oji Saturday se'nnight, and, from the favourable appearance of the harvest, will cer: a: n- ly decline much more.— Several thousand bushels of » he- it have last. week been landed at Liverpool from America ; and immense shipmen's'of grain from Russia are speedily expected— Cumberland Pafket The Rev. Dr. Brumahaute, Chaplain to ti e Swedish Embassy, related an interesting anecdote of the Dalecarlian Swedes, at the meeting in the Egyptian Hall of the Mansion- HoUse, on Thurs- day. It seems that the Dalecarlians, who had been accustomed- to pray for the success of the English against the French, were forbidden to do : so, when the Swedish Court. changed its politics, • and were told,- that the English were their enemies.

For some weeks she had bpen confined to her bed . rti'a'bad" state oftieal'' h, anff was thought so much in a dfing condition, that thp clprgyman had Daid, her repeated visits.

A farm- servant, near Manchester, after having . satisfied his stomach wi'b a very heartv dinner, went, after thanks wpre returned, very deliberate, ly to the barn, an- f hanged himself. On Tuesday afternoon, J. Elam, a boy of 14 years of- age,, servant to Mr. De Pear, surgeon, of Crow- lane, was sent by his master to take his horse to the s'ab'e, after coming off a journey. The lad stopping longer than usual, a little girl, whffl lives wirh Mr, De Pear, was sent to call him to dinner, and returned much affrighted, saying, she thought James was dead. Mr. De Pear ran in great haste to his stable, and found the boy sus- pended by the neck in a long leathern strap, which he had wrapped round the top of the rack, and tied in several knots to one of the staves. He was immediately cut down, but no vital spark re- mained. TALBOT, THE ACTOS.—-- A strange fatality seems to have attended the family of Mr. Talbot, now performing at the Haymarket Theatre. He was deprived of a father, brother, and three uncles, by the most horrible and viohnt deaths, in the four quarters of the Globe. His uncle, Major John Talbot, was smothered by Hyder Ally, in the black- hole at Calcutta; his uncle. Captain James Talbot, was wounded, and sup- posed, in that helpless state, to have been burned alive, in a house set on fire ' jv the fate of war in Charlestown, during the American troubles ; his other uncle was shot in a dttel in England, and died'the miserable victim to a false notion of honour; his brother, George, was killed in an engagement at sea, while serving on board his father's ship as midshipman ; and the father of Mr. Talbot met with a fate perhaps still more tragical than all the others, having been wrecked on the ioast of Caffraria ( he being a passenger, with his servants, on board the Grosvenor East Indiaman, so unfortunately lost in the year 1802 ) —( The Alfred.) ...'-" BELFAST COURSE OF EXCHANOE, die.

From these prints we have some interesting intelligence from America: we also subjoin the hostile accounts brought by a late arrival at Greenock, and anxiously expect a favourable result to the dispatches notifying the positive Repeal of the Orders in Council, which have already reached the American Government. Our Readers will find in the first page the Supplement to the London Gazette Extraordin- ary, containing the list of killed ^ pd wounded of the Portuguese army. Some private letters also afford an interesting picture of that sanguinary battle. PACKET 13 Y EXPRESS* London, Thursday, August 20. Mr. Foster, not Minister to the United States, arrived last night at Portsmouth, in the Atalante slocp. He landed immediately, and set off for London, where he arrived about nihe this morn- ing. He c'; ime last- from Halifax. The Gleaner stoop had arrived in Amerto,, but not till after Mr. Foster had left New- York. He received the dispatches by her at Halifax, and, wp understand, immediately sent a Courier to Washington with a dispatch to the American Government, informing them, that he had received a dispatch- from this country, announcing' the intention. of his Govern, ment to suspend for a limited time the Orders in Council, apd proposing in consequence, an armis- tice, or a recal of the hostile'measures which the American Government had adopted. The answer to his dispatch had not been received from Wash- ington when he sailed, but he left his Secretary at Halifax ( Courier.) Letters of marque are said to have been issued by* the American Government; and a few vessels- to have been taken. Admiral Sawyer has sailed from Halifax with 12 ships of war, and the Ame- rican squadron is said in Sbm^ ieiters to be on the tail of the bank of Newfoundland. The Gleaner sailed from Falmouth early in June, and consequently could not have carried out the positive repeal of the Orders in Council, which i. did not take'' place till the 23d June. AMERICAN PRIVATFERS AT From the following extra'ts of letters received this morning, we apprehend the Ame ican Govern- ment have already permitted their privateers to cruise against the commerce of this country. ExtraA of a Letter from St. John's, Newfoundland, dated 24th July. " Yesterday a vessel arrived from Sidney ; the niastpr assures me it was., posted up there, that a sloop laden with coals had been boarded by an American cutter privateer, but suffered to plroteed, not being worth taking. So confident is Sir John Duckworth of there being American privateers at sea, that he will not suffer a Captain of Marines, who lately arrived here from England, to proceed in a merchant vessel to join the Africa man of war at Halifax. Accounts from Halifax to/ the I8th inst. state, that Admiral Sawyer had sailed from that port with twelve sail of men of war; and it is reported here that the American squadron is on the tail of the bank." ExtraCt of a Letter from Portsmouth, August 10. " Just arrived the American ship Lucia, Hay- den,- from London, bound to New- York, but de- tained by the Muros sloop of war, in her passage from Newfoundland, in consequence of her license not being endorsed, and the irregularity of her papers. On the 30th ult. the Muros boarded the ship Duke, which had spoken one of the Cherub's convoy from the Leeward Islands, and was in- formed that the Hazard sloop of war had. cap- tured severar'American vessels, and taken a brig from one of their privateers." Maj- mont is said to have arrived at Burgos ex- tremely ill, both from the effefi of his wound and of his defeat. The troops are scattered in all di rections, and as one of the guerilla leaders writes, •* the morale of Marmont's army is entirely des. troyed," meaning, that besides being beaten so se- verely, they are spiritless and heart- broken.— The guerillas are understood to have been extremely successful over . the . detachmen s- into which the enemy are divided.— Espoz y Mina hovers on the road in front of them, and the Marquis of Wel- lington is understood to have direfled'liim to cut up the roads, in order that their retreat may be more difficult, and the transport of heavy artillery and baggage be rend ered impracticable. This is a service for which no man is more fit, from th natural activity and enterprise of his disposition, from his immortal hatred, and his sworn ven. geanc. fi against the enemy. . - . There were several reports yesterday evening of ffesh victories gained by our armies. Soult was said to have received a signal defeat from General Hill; and a' vessel was. rum > ured to have arrived at Plymou h from S ifitander, which she left on the 11th, wiih the intelligence that'Lord Wellington had despatched a division of his army. frO'm Cuel- lar towards PertafieT, which had succeeded in mak- ing J. iseph Bori.'. par. te anS 7000 of his army pn. soners. However probable-.- both these reports may be, no confirmation of them has been receiv- ed by. Government, nor can we find by otj'r Ply- mouth letter this feofning, that " any vessel lias ar- rived from Santander.— Courier. There wis a report, this miming, thatintelH, gence had been received, of Lord Wellington's having taken Joseph Bhnaparte and his whole train ot Peijafial, on Oi ir way towards Biyinne The report . is pre. matnre-— but the event is highly probable. The Marqtiis pf Wellington, we hear, has written to that aaive Chief, Espoz y Mina. to cut up the roads by which the remains of Mar- mom's army are to retreat; so that we must again express our hopes that not many of them will escape, A report is prevalent on ' Change that five French frigates have been seen cruizing in the West Indies. N. i- such reporthas reached Lloyd's, though they are in possession of letters from Bar- badoes of the 6th of July, from, Antigua' 7. h of July, and from St. Thomas's as Lte as the ISih of July last.

AMERICA, American Papers of the I8th ult. had been re ceived at Cork. It appears that an ad of Congress had passed on the 26th June, authorizing th^ President of the United States to revoke at pleasure such letters of marque and reprisal, which he may bay? grunted, . ot. which he shall grant in pursuance of an AT de. daring War between the United States and Great Britain,. The aCt also regulates the conditi > ns 0; i which letters shall be granted.

BELFAST COMMERCIAL CHRONICLE ROPHECIES A DIJBTMW, Friday, August 21. GRAND DINNER TO THE BISHOP f F NORWICH, ASD THE OTHER TARtlAMENTARY FRIENDS OF THE CATHOLIC CAUSE. The exoefled dinner to the amiable and pa- triotic Bishop of Norwich, and to the other Par. liamentary Advocates of Catholic Liberty, was given yesterday at the Rotunda, Lord Fingal being in the Chair.— The dinner, which was par. ticularly pood, was served up in the most superb and magnificent style ; the desert and wines were excellent; the music charming; the party, con. sitting of about 120, was seletf ; and the entire scene, in fart, either to the eye or fancy, presented a tout ensemble of elegance which exceeded any thing we had ever witnessed on a similar occasion. Dinner was on ( he table about half- past sir— After the cloth was removed, Non Nobis Dom'tne • was executed in a superior style by Messrs. Spray, Jager, Weyman, & c. who appeared to be all in fine voice. The first toast given by the illustrious Chairman was, of course, " The King." Next was drank, with three ' imes three, " The Prinee Repent," and next, " The Princess Charlotte of Wales, the hope of her Coun- ttf" which was received with marked demonstrations of respefl and affeflion. " The Duke of York, and the Army." « The Duke of Clarence, and the Nav. y" followed ; after which was given with loud ap- plause, iT " The Duke of Kent but, upon the health of « The Duke of Sussex, the Illustrious Advocate of the Catholic Cause," which was the next in order, there was a kind of volley of plaudits and cheers for several seconds, which well spoke the veneration in which this most estimable Prince is held by that best repository of human affection— THE IRISH HEART. Lord Fingal after this rose, as his Lcrdship in a very handsome and becoming manner said, to propose a toast which could not be rendered more acceptable by any thing he could sav, if he even possessed the eloquence of many of his respefted friends, which he saw about him.—( Hear* hear, hear.) " I feel," said his Lordship, " I am called upon in duty to thank you for having given me an opportunity of being the proposer of a toast which will be drank with no less enthusiasm by you than myself—( Hear, hear.) I owe you obliga- tions which it would he hard forme to calculate, for the flattering marks of partiality and esteem I have ever co tinued to receive at your hands; but I conceive that my debt of gratitude has been materially enhanced by the opportunity you have given me of paying my personal resp fls to a personage whose public and private worth speaks too eloquently for itself, to need my humble com- mendation.— ( Loud applause.) I am truly happy, Gentlemen, in having it in my power to address this illustrious cbaradler in this country and in this room ; and I have only to hope that I shall get many opportunities of discharging towards him the very grateful duty I am about to perform.—- ( Cheers.) Gentlemen, the toast I mean to pro- pose I need scarcely say is, " The Bishop of Norwich, and may his example contri- bute to diffuse the mild and benignant spirit of the Gospe tmong all its Prole& sors"-— Three rime* three, great applause- This toast was drar. k with three times three, and the cheering scarcely knew cessation for soine minutes. The venerated Prelate, whose bcneficent coun- tenance is a true index to his mind, rose, seeming- ly under lively emotion, and spoke to the follow, ing t- ffect:— " Gentlemen, accept my sinceie and hearty thanks for the honour you have done me in now drinking my health, and for the many other marks of regard you have been pleased to evince towards me. The only return in the power of one so insignificant as myself, is to endeavour to deserve your kind partiality. If gratitude consti- tute desert, I am not, Gentlemen, I trust, without some portion of it. I beg U> ave to return my most grateful thanks ta the Noble Lord ( Fingal), for the kind manner in which he has seconded your favourable opinion of me." This modest and becoming Address was fol- lowed by peals of applause. " Our Protestant Brethren,"— three times three. The next toast given was " The Memory of ( harles James Fox," which was drank with profound silence and reve- rence, which well pointed out how nearly this matchless Statesman, and renowned " friend to the human kind" approached to the Irish heart. " Tile Liberty of the Press" was next drank with the enthusiasm that should distinguish an assembly who valued its blessings, and who were not ignorant of this incontroverti- ble truth, that a FK£ E PKESS is twin- sister, and the inseparable companion and attendant of civil liberty ; and that- the extinction of one shall pro- nounce the death warrant of fhe other. « Our gallant Countryman the Earl of Wellington, and the heroes who fi? hr unde his banner," was next riven wi- h three, times three., with the loudest acclamations, after which the assembly were highly delighted with a tie '' song, the music of which we understand was composed by Sir J hn Stevenson, and the words bv a gentleman if this city, called " Wellington and Victory." " The Right Hon. Henry Grattan, the early Supporter of , air Cause," was next given with three times three. Mr. Grattan rose and sai 1—" I have the honour to return you my humble thanks for the strong expressions of affetfion with whicii you have drank mv health. I do warmly congratulate you upon the advancement of your cause, which owes more to its own intrinsic merits, than to the zeal and exertions of its advocates. I congratulate you upon the advantages yon have obtained by the late vote of the House of Commons, and upon the strength yoH have acquired hy the advocacy, smongst others, of Marquis Wellesley, whose ejo- * quence in defence of your rights is not less distin- guishpd than the solidity of his reasoning. I congra- tulate you upon the progress your cause has made amovg the Protestants of your own country, and surely I should more specially congratulate you upon the progress it has made in England, where even the Prelacy, doing honour to the class to which they belong, take your oaths as a pledge of your integrity, and say you have not justice or | the reward of your merits when you are not Iree. —( Loud applauses )— I would beg to give you, Gentlemen, the health of the illustrious guardian of your interests, the Noble Chairman, whose zeal and. diligence are not more distinguished or ser- viceable, than his temperance and moderation. This was drank, as usual, with enthusiasm. Lord Fingal returned thanks for the high honour done him. Nothing that he could say could con- vince them more of his anxious desire to do all in his power to serve the cause of his country, which had already prospered so much under the auspices of his Right Hon. Ftiend, amongst others. " A great deal," said his Lordship, " has been done by us; but considerably more has been effefted by our friends. However, we too, shall continue to be afiive ; and, as for my part, I shall work at my old trade without cessation, while we have a shadow of grievance to complain of."—( A laugh and applause.) The Chairman then gave the health of " The Earl of Moira"-— three times three, which was drank with the greatest applause, and the loudest huzzaing and cheering we heard dur- ing the night. « The Earl of Granard." Upon his Lordship's health being drank, he said, " My Lord and Gentlemen, I feel highly grate- ful for the honour you have been kind enough to confer tipon me, at) d return you my sincere thanks." " The Right Honourable the Master of the Rolls," was next given with three times three, and with continued cheering that is always reserved for Mr. Cur ran, to distinguish him as it were from all other men. This - singular man rose and returned hanks in a most eloquent speech. " Prosperity. Peace, and Unanimity to IreWn- J." " The Earl of Donoughmore,"— three- times thiee. '• Earl Grey,"' three times three. " Marquis Wellesley," tlrie times three. " The Knight of Kerry," was then given with three times three, upon which the esteemed patriot rose and said—" My Lord Fingal, accustomed as f- ara to experience the ex- treme favour of my Catholic ' Countrymen, I own 1 could not have expefted to have ubtained any notice this night. When I am associated in the campaign against intolerance with such dis. tiriguished leaders as I see' around me, if my name shall obtain any notice I should expea to see it get a solitary and silent place in the Gazette, and that place at the bottom too.—.( Cheers.)— Confident as we are of the justice of our Cause, and conscious as we are of an approaching vitfory, it is still impossible not1 to stop to congratulate ourselves upon the scene this night ptesents.— ( Hear, hear.)— I consider what we now witness is a splendid triumph to real Christianity.—( Hear, hear, hear.)— The Protestant Prelate and the Catholic Prelate associating in harmony and brotherhood, and thereby bearing testimony of the purity from which both afled, is surely an important triumph to reason and Christianity—( Hear., hear, hear )— For my part, as; a Protestant,, I am inclined to take pride to myself for " the specimen of genuine liberality evinced in thrParliamentary conduct of the Noble Prelate on my right. I estimate this liberality more, because I know it does not flow so much from a motive of political wisdom, as from that of religious justice—( Hear, hear.)— I bail it as the precursor of a speedy and total eitintfion of all religious animosities and differen- ces whatever ( Applause.)— For the attainment of your just objects, 1 always considered there was one grand requisite necessary, which I never failed to point the attention of my Catholic Countrymen to. This grand requisite is vm ANIMITVV—( Loud cries of hear, hear.)— This has accomplished what you have already gained, and it wiil be the sole author of what you have to expett.—( Hear, Lear.)— No one has set a more eminent example of its effica- cy, than my noble friend in the Chair—( Hear.)— His steady and unifoipi propriety— his public and private virtues have been incredibly instrumental in England, of procuring you what you have gained there ( Hear, hear, hear.)— I trust you wiil give me credit for the sincerity with which I return you thanks, for the distinguished honour you have done me."—( Loud applause.) Lord Grenviile," was the next toast. Mr. D. B. Daly's health being drank, this Gentleman said—" I feel highly gratified by the honour you have done me. During five and thirty years which I have been in Parliament, I have uniformly supported the Catholic Question. The I'm of conduct heretofore pursued by me, is a security for that which I shall adopt in future. For the approbation you have been kind enough to bestow upon my exertions, I feel extremely thankful." Lord Fing? l. sajd, be was about to propose a. toast, which would be, drank, with pleasure while Irishmen retained, a. spark of gratitude, and he believed it would be a long period before that quality shoull be extinct from their hearts. He then « * ve the health of Rjrl Firzwil'ism'." whi'- b was re- eived with unbounded apptatlse. Upon the health of Co1. Talbot, the patriotic Member for the County Dublin being drank, that Gentleman rose and said, he Was eirrerrHv grate fu1 for the honour done him. Since h » possessed the faculty of thinking, he had always been the firm advocate of universal toleration s and now that liberality had become so much the fashion, it was not likely that he should alter his se - ti- ments. He concluded bv proposing the healh of that amiable and promising young Nobleman, " Lord Killeen," which was received with the warmest plaudits. When the cheering had in some degree sub- sided, his Lordship said—" I request you to ac- cept my most grateful thanks for the honour you have been kind enough to confer upon me. As yet it has been in mv power to do very little to deserve it,' but it will have the effect of stimulat- ing me to fu'ure exertions When I mark the progress which liberality has made in these king- doms— when I see amongst us the venerable Pre- late whom we have the honour, I may say the happiness, to have present, as a Catholic I re- joice, and as an Irishman I exult." " Lord Holland," was next given, when the Knight of Kerry rose, and begged leave to trespass for a few moments on the attention of the company. Though un- warranted by any particular connexion or inti- macy with the Noble Lord, whose health they had just drank, to take especial notice of the toast, he could not be satisfied to let it pass with- out making one or two short observations know- ing as he did the truth of what he was going to state. He had many opportunities of acquaint- ance with public characters in England, since the Union, and with Lord Holland amongst others. His Lordship, he said, deserved the grati- ude of every Irishman. His attention was not confined to the Catholic Cause alone, but upon every subject that related to Ireland he evinced the greatest diligence and assiduity. He was always anxious to procure every information as to the state of this kingdom, and to obtain for its inha- bitants the blessings of Civil and Religious liber- ty. He ( the Knight of Kerry) wished to see some of it's own Representatives as attentive to its interests and concerns. Here the Bishop of Norwich rose to retire, upon which he was again repeatedly cheered As he was leaving the room, he stopped to say, that he was happy to have a second time an op. portunity of returning his heartfelt thanks for the very marked attention with which he had been treated. " I shall always," said his Lordship, with emphasis, " use my best exertions to pro- mote the cause of Civil and Religious Freedom, without which, Government can scareely be said to be a bier sing— and without which, Religion is little better than a name." " Mr. Latouche." Tills Gentleman in returning thanks said, that he was happy to find his conduit had met the ap- probation of his countrymen. He congratulated them on the gieat progress which their cause had made during the last twelve months. I hey could now reckon among their advocates the first per- sons in the Empire, whether they were considered in point of rank, property, or talents, and he trust- ed that he should very soon witness the total Emancipa'ion of the Catholics of Ireland. " Mr. Hamilton," was next drank. He said, " I fee! greatly obliged by this kind mark of your approbation, and I shall always be anxious to fulfil my duty." " The Marquis of Lansdowne,"— three times three. " The Duke of Bedford,"— three times three. " The Earl of Harrington,"— three times three. " Sir John Newport,"— three times three. " Mr. Canning,"— three times three. " Mr, Verner, son of the Archbishop of York,"— three times three. " Mr. Hely Hutchinson,"— three times three. " Sir Henry Parnell,"— three times three. " John Keogh, Esq. of Mount Jerome,"— three times three. " Mr. Whitbread,"— three times three. " The Duke of Leinster,"— three times three. " The Marquis of Downshire,"— three times three. " Sir John Doyle."— three times three. " Mr. Ponson y "— three times three. " The Bishop of Kildare,"— three times three. " Lord Hardwicke,"— three times three. " Mr. Brand,"— three times three. " Mr. Winter "— rhreo times three. " General Mathew,"— three times three, " George Lidwell,"— three times three. 11 i. ora Erskine,"— three times three. Lord Fingal said, he would give a sentiment which had been long imprinted on his heart, and which he was sure would be highly acceptable to the Meeting, viz.— " The Came of Civil and Religious Liberty all over the World." His Lordship gave some other toasts, of which we will give a ful er report hereafter. Having quitted the Chair about 12 o'clock, his Lord- ship was succeeded by Mr. Fallon. Several con- vivial toasts were given ; and much cheerful and Indiscriminate Countenance induged in. The rooms was entirely cleared about half past two, and. thus ended a day which we consider impor- tant to the cause of the Country, and which we think will prove another and a very material aid to the progress of Religious Liberty. AYK, AUGUST 7.— On the island, in one of the lochs on the farm of Star, parish of Straiton, an eagle has, from time immemoiial, fixed his residence, and from his almost inaccessible eyrie, made incursions and committed depredations on the lambs, the moor game, and the poultry ip that neighbourhood. The follow- ing stratagem was lately successfully employed to root out the family of this sovereign of the feathered tribes. A youth swam to the island, and brought awaj' an. eagle from, the- nest, which he tethered on the shore ot the loch, and planted traps close by it.— | The, two parents coming to the relief of their young one were by these means ensna ed. The female had bet leg broken, and though owing to her not being pinioned when taken from the trap, she made her es- cape and soared out of sight, yet, from the circum stance of her bill being tied fast with a string, it is supposed she has perished. The mail was caught by one of his toes, and though incumbered with a trap seven pounds in weight, he flew across the loch with it suspended at his foot, but being taken when he alighted, he was brought here and exhibited for a day or two. His colour is light grey, with a belt of pure white across the tail. We understand that the fallowing passage- from Tsai ih, chap. xiv. i; secretly, bar widely, cirer.

" PKEDICTION.— Extracted from a Chatham new- paper about 1801 :— Tl ee is now living in Gilling- h'ani, Kent, a most eccentric old gentleman, who as- sumes to himself the faculty of second sight, and has for several years predicted the fate of empires and the fall of Bonaparte. At the time of this declaration there was a general expectation of peace, which was really ratified; but this old gentleman stood firm in opinions he bad delivered, and speaks with exultation of some recent events which have confirmed them.— Before the treaty of Amiens was concluded, he de- clared it would not last, and that this country ought not to expect it; for, said be, Bonaparte must be a greater man than he now is, and it will be by oppos- ing this countiy that he will become so. He. will go on becoming higher and greater, and will make vic- tory till he corn s to the confines of Russia, where will be fought the last great battle, in which Bona- parte will fall and die. His death will bring to light " a greater General than he has ever been, who will really perform what Bonaparte pretended to do when j he acquired ponyer, make the nations of the world ! happy. This General, lie says, will be found to be a descendant of David, who will turn his attention to the Jews, gather them altogether, and leading them home to their own country, lay the foundation of their future greatness ; that at that time all Christen- dom si tall be subdued to him, ar. d the fnte of this country be the fulfilment of the 27th of Ezekiel— The period when these great events will take place will be, when three years and a half dre passed after the time of the highest [ his marriage of Maria Louisa of Austria] exaltation and the last honours attained by Bonaparte. DREADFUL LLRE. WEXFORD, AUG. 17-— On the 12th instant * n alarming fire broke out in the house of a tenant of j the Postmaster of Ferns, which communicated to the thatch from an oven, and, from the drought of the season, threatened destrmflion to the greater part of the town. The adjoining house belonged to a poor industrious man, named Clampet, with a large helpless family, whose entire property was consumed. He had about £ 3 in cash, which was also lost ; and he was thereby deprived of the means of procuring a blanket to cover him and his numerous family. The fire now reached the pre- mises of Mr. Benjamin Pearson, and, baffling every effort for its extinflion, totally consumed seven out. offices, with all his farming utensils, bri. hies, saddles, & c. a great quantity of timber and firing ; from thence it reached his dwelling- house, but, from the very great exertions of the popu- lace, and the wind luckily changing, it was at last happily got under ; the house has been considera- bly injured. Mr. Pearson's loss cannot be esti- mated at less than ifi700; his valuable stock of shop- goods, lately laid in, were all thrown into the street; his furniture, mostly new, broken in pieces, and worth little but for fuel, besides his house completely gutted, partitions, and every kind of fixtures, windows, doors, & c. & c. all de » molithed. ECONOMICAL BREAD. Only the coarse flake bran is to be removed from the flour; of this take five pounds, and boil it in rather more than four gallons of water ; so that when perfeftly smooth, you may have three gallons and three quarts cf bran- water clear. With this knead fifty- six pounds of the flour, add. ing salt and yeast in the same way and proportion as for other bread. When ready to bake, divide It into loaves, and bake them two hours and a half. Thus made, flour will imbibe three quarts more of bran- water than of plain; so that it not only produces a more nutritious substantial food, but makes an increase of one- fifth of the usual quantity of bread, which is a saving of one day's consumption out of six ; and if this was adopted now throughout the kingdom, it would make a saving of ten millions steiling a year, reckoning the consumption to be two hundred thousand bushels a day. The same quantity of flour which, kneaded with water, produces sixty- nine pounds eight ounces of bread, will, in the above way, ! make eighty- thrge pounds eight ounces, and gain fourteen pounds. At the- ordma- fy , pric » sif f! . » four millions would, hs saved. When ten kit*. old, if put. into the oven for twenty minutes, bread will appear, qui; e new again, MISGELLAXR^ US. ExTttioRPtuaitY CASE— On the IS ' i of I. TO • June, Mr. Tipple drove ' lie single- horse chaise his friend, J. Overton, Esq, to ilie Fore'- t- ga,<, West. Ham, where he arrived about, nine tt'clntk io the evening. He then oroce?'' 1 d to unharnrs* U:' horse from the chaise, incautiously placing hrmv' 1' between the off shaft and an angle of the chaisu- house, at which instant the horse moved towards the stable door opposite, and the shaft of the chaise struck Mr. T. tinder the left arm, and the horse continuing to advance, the shafi was forced through his body. It came out immediately under hit tight arm and entered the chaise house about srx inches, passing through an exterior feather- edged board, and carrying away the interior lining. In this situation Mr. Tipple remained two or three minutes pinioned to the chaise- house, till his ciies attrafled the attention of two gentlemen, one of whom seized the horse bv the nose, lucked him, and with care and promptitude drew the shaft from the body, which it had entered from tfe end to the first tug, 21 inches. Mr. T. then walked into the house, and up two pair of stairs into his clumber. Medical assistance was procured in eight minutes, and he was bled. Sir Wm. Blizzard was wi; h him, and in somewhat less than two hours after the accident recommended it to Mr. Tipple to set- tle his affairs, and gave it as his opinion, to the friends of Mr. T. that it was impossible for him to survive. Contrary, however,- to all . expectation and expetience, Mr. T. through the on f- mitiing assistance of Sir William Blizzard, and the jpdi- cious means resorted to in the first instance by D s Maddens, has wilhiri the spice of four weeks from the time of the acciden", so far recovrred as to tie able to walk about— Bristol Mirror. tv At the Enniskillen Assizes T. Brett, C. Dala ny, and H. Benson, Revenue Officers, were oiifled for the murder of P. Q'Donneli, at Enr, is » killen, on the 20; h of May.— It appeared in evi* dence, that the deceased and A. Al'ingham, scete smuggling contraband spirits in a boat, on she river Erne, on 20th May last— that ? lie prisoners and three of the Cornwall Militia were in another boat, and called to the deceased and his com a- nion to surrender, which they ei her did not hear, or did not attend to— on which the military fired, and P. O'Dmnell was killed. The Jury, in con- sequence of the contrai. liiflory evidence of the Sur- vivor, Allingham, and under the direflion of Ba- ron M'Cleiiand, acquitt d the prisoners. The Learned Judge then addressed them, and sail, that before he discharged them, he thought it propi- r to. observe ( fiist hoping, that not one of them, had given direfiions to fiie the fatal shot, which had deprived the father of a large arid affli'led family of his life), that they, as Revenue Officers, were not authorised in point of law to fire u - ' n per- sons, as if a felony had been committed. Except where a felony had aflually been committed, they were not ves'ed with any power to order the mili- tary to fire their muskets ; for, it were much bet- ter that any given number of smugglers should escape, than that one innocent man should lose his life. He stated this, that the law might he fully and clearly understood by the Revenue Officer;-, and that they would not dare to command the military to aft in such a manner, as might endaa ger the life of a subjefl, till after the seizure wa » made. There is a Goose now living with William M'Naughton, farmer, at Loch Earnside, that i » upwards of 150 years old; it is a stout animal yet, and is of the male kind. It is a little like the ancient Scotch, very hostile to strangers, while at the same time it shows the utmost complaisance to those with whom it is acquainted. Ii has been handed down from generation to generation on the mother's side till the present day, and is as lively at this moment as it was 100 years ago.— ( Dune- dee Mercury.) SIMPLE CURE FOR BURNS. A happy discovery for the relieving instantly the pain, and preventing tile contract on of the parts oc- casioned by burns on the face or any part of the body. Whether the burn has been received fiom boiling wa- ter, from steam, or red hot iron, from pitch, boiling . oil, or sealing- wax, the same salutary effects will be immediately produced, by the following simple reme- dy, which every person has in his house. Take a little soap, formed by a brush with cold water, into a' strong lather. If a shaving box and brush are not at hand, dip the soap in cold water, and hold it to the wound till the strong lather is prepared. If the pain return when the lather is preparing, turn the soap up- side down, that the cold part of the sottp may be close upon the burn, and so alternately, as the belt returns. Then cover the part aff- cted with the lather as thick as it can lay. When the soap begins to dry, the paid will return in some degree, then repeat the application of the lather of the soap with cold water, and in the- course of one hour all pain . will cease, and no blister will rise. The part will appear reddish for a little, but no scar will be left. The last tinie the person who gives this prescription got a burn, was in the. fol- lowing manner:— The maid- servant being from home, lie went to tU; kitchen and laid hold of a kettle of boiling water then on the fire ; the kettle fell to one side, the lid dropped off and the steam ot the boiling water mixed with the hot ashes from the fire, burned his hand most severely. He immediately dipped his brush in coid water, made a strong 1 ther of soap, and. • covered the part affected with a thick coat of* it.— In . the course of shaving, and going down stalls. to breakfast, with the soap box, as the soap dried he add- ed a new coat, which always removed the returning pain, till in the course of an hour it ceased altogethei^ no blister rose, and in the couise of ten or twelve d. ivs the whole skin came off Ins hand like the skin of a boil- ed potatoe. No shtivelling nor deformity remained. He never had any but the white soap by him when lie suffered a burn, so that he can say nothing of any other species of soap.
