Horte'nse Eugene Napoleon, her sister, born 23d December, 1808. We have given the preceding account literally as it appears in the French Court List, revised by the Government, and sanctioned by its authority. We now have to offer some observations, which probably occur still more strongly to most of the French readers, but vhich the state of the press v. ill nut allow any body in their country to publish: 1. It is worthy of notice, that Napoleon's mar- riage with Josephine, and his subsequent divorce, are passed over in perfect silence; and that men- tion is made only of the existing marriage with Maria Louisa. It is stilted, however, by those- who have arrived recently from Paris, that since the birth of the young King of Rome, Maria Louisa is not the object of that extreme solic tude which Napoleon shewed for her before; some sup- posing that he never regarded her in any otl^ er light than as the mere medium of having an heir; although others attribute the change in his man- ner towards her to the delay of a second preg. nancy. All agree that he is extremely particular ia hi » atteutioa to Josepliiue, fcjtli wham, indeed. he never ceased to be on terms of the mojt coi1- dial intimacy. 2. The list makes no mention whatsoever of Lucien Bonaparte. 3. Maria Julia, Queen of the Spain.;, wife of Joseph Bixiaparte, is noticed si. nply by name, without mentioning her origin, which as our readers will observe, is always done when the per- son is of any sovereign family. Joseph Bona- parte's wife is the daughter of the Protect of a prin- cipal town in the south of France. She has a sis- ter married to Bernadotte, Crown Prince of Swe- den. It has been recently reported, that this last mentioned lady was to be divorced from her hus- band, and to reside in France, but the latest ac- counts from Sweden contradict the statement, and assures us that they live on the happiest terms. 4. Louis Napoleon, King.—— This j- eq, the King of Holland ; but since the supp.'."„.. jn ^^ j his kingdom, and the incorporation of his terri- I tory with the French Empirs, he seems to be in j the situation of a King unattached, like an Officer 1 having army rank by brevet, or rather to be al- j lowed to retain his title by courtesy, after hav- I ing been deprived of it in reality, like a retired Captain. 5. Hortensia Eugene, Queen, the wife of Louis, and formerly Queen of Holland, seems to hold her Royal title on the same grounds its her husband. She was the daughter of the Empress Josephine, by her first husband, the Viscomte De Beauhar- nois, who perished in the Revolution. She grew up to marriageable age after Napoleon's union with her mother, and being a very beautiful girl, was a great favourite with him; insomuch, that when he gave her in marriage to his brother Louis, scandal said that it was for the purpose of covering a criminal intimacy of his own with her, already existing, or contemplated by him. The issue of this marriage, Napoleon Louis, stiled Brine; Royal ( that is, ci- devanl Prince Royal of Holland), passed for a long time for presumptive heir to Bonaparte's whole empire; an opinion which gave additional force to the scandal about | his birth. This scandal has been since farther confirmed by the separation between Louis and his wife; the latter having for several years re- sided at Paris, while Louis was at the Hague Since the incorporation of the Kingdom of Hol- land, she has continued to reside there, while Louis, altogether out of favour with his brother, and not concealing his sentiments respecting him, passing his time in visiting the obscure watering places of Germany. Louis did not hesitate to in- sinuate his suspicions in his addresses to the States of Holland at the period of his abdication, when expressing his confidence that his wife and son would find favour in the sight of the Emperor - The boy has been made a Sovereign Prince, be- ing appointed Grand Duke of Berg and Cleves, in the room of Murat, ..- hen the latter was pro- moted to the Kingdom of Naples. This rank the child still holds ; white his father, though a King in name, is a wandering outcast in Germany; and his mother, though called a Queen, is a discard- ed favourite at Paris. 6. Jerome Napoleon, it will be recollected, when sent to sea, some years since, to learn the profession of an Admiral, took refuge in an Ame- rican port, and married Miss Patterson, the daugh- ter of a respectable merchant of Philadelphia, of Irish origin. This lady he afterwards deserted, at the instance of Napoleon, and returned to France, still vowing inviolable faith towards her: but when she followed him to Europe, she found that she was prohibited by the special orders of Napoleon from landing in any port of France, or of the countries dependent upon it. She was, therefore, compelled to return to America, after a short sojournment in England where she receiv- ed the most polite attention. Jerome afterwards married the German Princess, whom the power of Napoleon compelled to give her hand to him. 7. Marine Pauline, signed Bonaparte, married to the Prince Borghese, whom the Christians ri- diculed by translating his name Prince Bourgeois, was formerly the wifb of Gen. Le Clerc, who we » . t on the expedition from France to St. Domingo, in the last peace, and having amassed an immense fortune, by plunder, died of the disease incident to that climate. His widow returned to France with his riches, which, as well as her brother's power and influence, induced the Prince Borghese to marry her. f 8. Eugene Napoleon, son of" the Empress Jose- phine, by her former husband Beauhamois, Vice- roy of Italy, & c. was adopted into the Imperial family by Bonaparte, whence he takes the addition of Napoleon, which is also borne for a similar cause, by Joachim Murat, King of Naples, wiih her son, and, notwithstanding' every eflf> rt was make to discover their retre- at, they had not since been'heard of; but having lately been in- formed that the woman was a native of Lrerlt, ? he had come to the resolution of going there ia search of her child, and with this view had walk- ed from London to Folkingham, a distanc • of 106 miles, with an infant not more than six weeki old in her arms. The boy's master stated, that about the latter end of last January he met a wo- man and boy in the vicinity of Sleaford, where he resides; she appeared very ragged, and other, wise milch distressed, and was at that time beat, ing the boy rilost severely; she then accosted him ( the master), saying she was in great dis- tress, and a long way from home, and after some further preliminary conversation, said, if he would her two guineas to enable her to get home, she would bind heT son apprentice to him ; this proposal was agreed' to, and the boy was regular, ly indentured, the worhnhaving previously made affidavit as to bring his owfr- ffiW^ v-^ fMrtfric mony was corroborated by the hvy himself: but as no doubt remained in the mind of any one re- specting the boy's real mother, his master, without farther ceremony, resig , ed him to her. The inhabitants interested themselves very hu- manely in the poor woman's behalf, by not only paying her Coach fare back to London ( her child- ren having been freed by one of the proprietors), but also by collecting for her the sum of £ 2, 5s. INTERESTING EVENT. An interesting occurrence took place at Folk- ingham on Tuesday evening se'nnigh. t.—- A poor woman, who had obtained a pass- billet to remain there all night, was sitting by the fire in the kit- chen of the Greyhound Inn, with an infant child at her breast, when two Chimney- sweeps ciime in, who had been eng iged to sweep some of the chirnnies belonging to the inn early next? teJorn- ingj They were, according to custom, s^ ttd with a supper, whieh they had begun to e:; t( w'ien the younger, a boy aboet seven voa. rs of age, ivifv pening to ctst his eyes, upon the worn in ( who had been likewise viewing them with a tised sciencion from their first entrance), suddenly started up, and exclaimed in' a frantic tone—" That's my Mo- ther!" and immediately flew into her arms ! It appeared that her name is Mary Davis, and that she is the wife of a private in the 2i rejjimcnt. of . she | l icr l| MR. MUNGO PARK. The following is an interesting extract from The Edinburgh Review: — " The last accounts of Mr. Park, from himself, were from 3: tnsanding, on the Niger, whence He transmitted his Jotiinal to the Government. The Institution are about to publish this immediately, for the benefit of his unfortuate family : and let us, in passing, intreat every one of the readers" Of this Re- view, for the sake of justice and humanity, to contri- bute their mite to the publication ; so that a fu. ivl, worthy of the cause in which he fell, may be raised for the family of the most enterprising tr. iTeller of the age. Along with Mr; Park's Journal, will be published that of Isaac* a native Mahometan, who having accompanied him to Sansanding, was after wards sent by Governor Maxwell to procure some account of liis fate — he returned to Senegal, after an ibsence of 20 months; and made his report in writ- ing. From it we extract the following account of Mr. Park's death, as given to Isa;. c by Araadee- Fatourna, who accompanied him from Sansanding on board a large schooner- rigged canoe, in which he had undertaken tbe navigation of the river to its mouth. Amadee- Fatouma accompanied him til! two or three days after he had readied the kingdom of Haoussa. " Next day," savs be, " Mr Park dofwrtc l, an.! I slept in the village ( Yaour). Next morning I went to thfc King, to pay my respects to him— on enteiing tbe house, 1 found two men, who came on horseback — they were sent by the Chief of Yaour. They said to tbe King, ' we are sent by the Chief of Y. iour, to let you know, that the white men went away, without giving you or him ( tbe Chief) any thing— tiiey h. ve a great many things with tln- ni, an 1 w » have received nothing from them; and this Amidee- F- itnumn, now before you, is a bad man, and has likewise m ide a tool of you both.' The K ng immediately ordered me to he put in iron;, which was accordingly done, and every tiling I had taken from me— some were ft r killing me, and some for preserving my life. The next morning early the King sent an army to a vil- lage failed Boussa, near the river's side— theie is be- fore this village a rock, across the whole breadth of the river— one part of the rock is very high; the. e is a large opening in that rock in the Li m of a door, which is the only passage for the iv r er to pass tbrc';- the tide current is here very strong ; t! w army went arid took possession of tbe top of this opening. Mr Pa k came there after the army had pasted itself; he nevei cheless attempted to pass. The people be. ran to attack him ; throwing lances, pikes, arrows . nd sto- i % M . Park d • tinned himself for a long t. me : two " f t e slaves at the stern of the canoe, were killed.— they threw every thing they had in the canoe into the river, and kept fit ing- j but being ovei powered by numbeis and fatigue, and unable to keep up the canoe against the current, and no probability of escapin r, of one of ibe white men and Martin did tiie sain', and they were drowned in tbe stream in attempting to es- cape. The only slave remaining in the boat, s. eing the natives persist in throwing weapons at tile canoe, stood up and said to them—' stop throwing ruw ) you see nothing in the canoe, and nobo'v liut myself — therefore cease | take me and the canoe, out don't kill me.' They took possession of the canoe and the man and carried them to the King. " I was kept in irons three months, the King then released me, and gave me a female slave. 1 immedi- ately went to the slave taken in thi canoe, who told ine in what manner Mr Paik, and all of them had died, and what I have related above." Mr Park took hold jumped into the water Foot Guards, now serving in the Peninsula ; s resides > n Westminster ; her husband quitted ! Without entering into the niqe qu - siions involved in Sir S.

Major Burgh, Aid- de- camp ^ o the Marquis of Wellington, ha? this clay arrived at Lord Ba- thurst's office with dispatches addressed to his Lard ship bv Lord Wellington, dated Madrid, the 13 h and 15th ultimo, of which the following are extrafi's: MACRtD, AUGOST 13. H'vmg found that the army ander Marshal Marmont eon'inued their retreat upon Burgos, in a state not likely to take thr field again for some time, 1 determined To bring Joseph Bonaparte to a general a& ion, or force him to quit Madrid. Accordingly I moved from Cuellar on the 6th instant. We arrived at Segovia on the 7th, and at St. Ildefonso on the 8th, where I halted one day, to allow the right of the army more time to come up. No opposition wai made to the passage of the troops through the moontains ; and- Brigadier- Ge- tieral D'Urban, with the Portuguese cavalry, and lit light battalion of the King's German Ligion, and Captain M'Donald's troop of horse artillery, had been through the Guadarama pass since the 9th. He moved forward on the morning of the 11th from the neighbourhood of Galapagas, and supported by the heavy cavalry of the King's Ger- man Legion, from Torrelodnnes, he drove in the French cavalry, about 2000 in number, and placed himself at Majalahonda with the Portuguese ca. valry, and Captain M'Donald's troop, and the cavalry and light infantry of the Ring's Gorman Legion at Las Royas, about three- quarters of a mile distant. • • The enemy's cavalry whiek had been driven off in the morning, and had moved towards Nava Carnero, returned about five in the: afternoon, and Brigadier- General D'Urban having formed the Portuguese cavalry in front of Majalahonda, sup- ported by the ' hotse artillery, ordered, the cavalry to charge the enemy's leading squadrons, which appeared too far advanced to be supported by their main body. The Portuguese cavalry ad- vanced to the attack, but unfortunately turned abautDefore they reached the enemy; and they fled through the village of Maj'alahonda, and back upon the German dragooris ; leaving behind them unprotected and unsupported, those guns of Captain Macdonald's troop, which had been inoved forward to co- operate with the cavalry— By the activity of the officers and soldiers of Cap. tain Macdonald's troop, the guns were, however, jiioved off; but owing to the unfavourable nature of the ground over which they were moved, the carriage of one was broken, and two others were , overturned, and these three gun* fell iuo the enc. . my'j Vands, The Portuguese dragoons having fled through Majalahonda, were rallied and reformed upon the heavy dragoons of the King's German Legion, which were formed between that village and Las Royas. The German cavalry charged the ene- my, although under many disadvantages and j stopped their further progress ; but I am sorry to j Say, that they suffered considerable loss, and that Colonel Jonqueries, who commanded the brigade, was taken prisoner. The left of the army was about two miles and a half distant, at the Puente de Ratamar on the Guadarama River, and Col. Ponsonby's brigade of cavalry and a brigade of infantry of the 7th division having moved forward to the support of the troops in advance, the ene- my retired upon Majalahonda as soon as they ob" served these troops, and night having cbme on, they retired upon Alcorcon, leaving our guns at Majalahonda'. I am happy to report that the officers of the Portuguese cavalry behaved remarkably well, and shewed a good example to their men, particularly the Viseonde de Barbacua, who was taken prison- er. The conduct of the brave German cavalry, was, I understand, iexcellent, as was that of Capt. Maedonald's troop of horse artillery. The light infantry battalion was not engaged. The army moved forward yesterday morning, and its left, took possession of the city of Madrid' Joseph Bonaparte having retired with the army of the centre by the roads of Toledo and- Aranjuez, leaving a garrison in the Retiro. It is impossible to describe the joy manifested by the inhabitants of Madrid upon our arrival ; and I hope that the prevalence of the same senti- ments of detestation of the French yoke, and of a strong desire to secure the independence of their country, which first induced them to set the ex- ample of resistance to the Usurper, will induce them to make exertions in the cause of their coun- try, which will be more efficacious than those for- merly made. I have not yet heard that Astorga has fallen ; but the garrison which the enemy left in Torde- sillas, about 260 in number, surrendered to Gen Santocildes on the 5th instant. I fiave received no further reports of the situs, tion of General Ballasteros since the 21st pf July. I have letters from General Joseph O'Donnell and General Roche of the 26th July; and the army of Murcia, under the command of the former, « - as defented by General D'Harispe on the 21st of July.— It appears that the Spanish troops mov- ed forward to attack General D'Harispe's posts at Castalla and at Ybi ; those which attacked thf former were repulsed with the loss of 2000 men and two pieces of cannon ; thise which attacked, the latreif, under tlife c;> mirifncf of General Rochttj conduced themselves remarkably, and covered the retreat of the troops under General O'Donneli, and a'terwards effi ffed their own retreat, in good or- der, to Alicante. This dispatch will be delivered by my Aid- de- camp, Major Burgh, who will be able to explain any further circumstances relating to our situa- tion ; and I beg leave to recommend him to your Lordship's protection. P. S. Since writing this dispatch, I have re- ceived a letter of the 10th. inst. from Gen. Mait- land, from Alicante, in which that Officer informs me that he had no that day landed at that place.

I have the pleasure to inform your Lordship, that the garrison of the Retiro surrendered by capitulation yesterday; and I have now the ho- nour to inclose a translation of the capitulation. ' We invested the place completely on the even- ing of the J 3th ; and in the night detachments of the 7th division of infantry, under the com- mand of Major General Hope, and of the SJ di- vision of infantry, under the command of Major • General the Honourable E. Pa& enham, drove in the enemy's posts from the Prado and the Botani- cal Gardens ; and the works which they had con- strufled outside of the park- wall, and having bfo- ken through the wall in different places, they were established in the palace of the Retiro, and close to the exterior of the enemy's works, inclosing the, building called La China. The troops were preparing in the morning to attack. those works, preparatory to the arrange- ments to be adopted for the attack of the interior line and building, w- he. n the Governor sent out an officer to desire to capitulate, and I granted him the honours of war, the baggage of the officers and soldiers of the garrison, & c. as specified in the en... closed . agreement. -' .. , _ ... I inclose a return of the strength of the garri, son, which marched out yesterday at four o'clock, on their road to Cyidad Rodrigo. We have found in the place 189 pieces of brass ordnance, in excellent condition ; nine hundred barrels of: powder} twenty thousand stand of arms; and! '- considerable magazines of clothing, provisions \ and ammunition. | We have likewise found the eagles of the I3ih : and 51 it regiments, which I forward to England; to beijtesented to his Royal Highness the Prince' Reg^^ by my Aid- de- camp, Major Burgh.

No consolatory news had arrived from Great Britain ; but the Federal party wits exerting itself to prevent the continuance of war. With other documents, we have obtained an address from 84- Members of the House of Re- presentatives, to their constituents, on that Sub- ject, which concludes with these striking para- graphs :— " The undersigned cannot refrain from asking, what are the United States to gain by this war?- Will the gratifica-' tion of some privateers' men compensate the nation for the sweep ® f legitimate commerce, by the extended marine ftf our enemy,' which this, desperate a6t invito? Will Canada compensate the middle Stares for New- York ; or the West- ern States for New Orleans ? - Let us no; be deceived. A war of invasion,- may invite a- report of invasion. . When we ' visit the- peaceable, and as to us, innocent colonies of Great Britain, with the horrors of war, can we be assured t'aat our own coast will not be visited with like horrors?" " At a crisis of the world such is the present, and under impre- sions « udi as the.- e, the. undersigned could not consider the war in which the United States have, in secret, been precipitated, as necessary, or required by any moral, duty, o't any political expediency." .

On Monday last, the • ei^ hbourhood nf M- ura witnessed a scene of peculiar interest, in the lanni; the f ilnd. irion stone of th- New Parish Chap<- f. The Most Noble the Marqui, of DownsMre per- formed the ceremony. About one o'clock, a number ' f the neighbouring fffnt- y, and multi- tudes of c'very prrsuasion, from the surrounding country, had assembled on the p- ronnd.' The ay was fine. We observed, with feelings of peculiar satisfaflion, th< » verv cordial spirit, mu'naly evinc- ed by ALL THE CLFRCY assembled on this gratify, ing occasion. Wi bin the stone was deposited, to- gether with some curious modern coins, a se led bottU, containing various manuscript parchments, relative to, lhe nature ol the foundation, and mark- ing the leading public occurrences of the time. The whole covered with a silver plate and appro, rriate inscription. The first stone was laid by his Lordship, in a solemn and dignified manner, after which a second stone was moved, by the united hands of the Catholic, Protestant, and Presby- terian Clergy present, and laid on the former. The interesting and benevolent youtig Uobleman who presided, expressed himself singularly grati- fied in meeting on the occasion so large and- re- speflable an assemblage, and hoped that the strik- ing example of liberality and unanimity, whicb they hadjust tviltifttrd, would be followed up in tb » neighbourhood, and throughout the country Inir his par', hi< Lordship should feel it a duty to forward such a cause according to his best means ; and, with that view, should make it his happiness to reside among his tenantry, with whom bis feel- ings and interests were most intimately blended. His Lordship expressed himself highly flattered, by the application made to him to patronize an instiiution of such a nature, and one that seemed so cordially supported by all ranks of every reli- gious persuasion. After the ceremony, his Lordship and the cum pany, were invited by the Rev. Mr. Jennings, - he Parish Priest, to partake of a cold repast, on the Green adjoining the Chapel Gnund. About one hundred and twenty sat down to a ruble, laid iju. der an extended shading of tent work, and covered » ith cold refreshments. During the repast, the whole party exhibited every appeaiance of mutual satisfaction antf pleasure. In the course of the day, a number of Toasts, appropriate to the oc- casion, and expressive of that spirit of liberality, which seemed to pervade all present, were drank with cordiality and enthusiasm. Among the Toasts were the following : The King. The Prince Regent. The Ouke of Richmond, and Prosperity to Inland. The Marquis of Downshire.

St » ,— The Author begs leave to acquaint you and the public, that the following wonderful Poem teontairs nothing but real, and well authenticated fails; and never before was tale of wonder more poetically strift to truth. The com- niunicatress of tbe subjoined story was, a Mrs DALZF. L, of Htreulet- itreet, Belfast, ( now an inhabitant of the tomb,) a Lady of the stri& eit veracity, and purest morals. She was a native of Dublin, where the scene of the composition is laid: and she has most solemnly declared, that this strange— this horrible affair, happened in the early part of her own life. « ow upwards of ninety years ago. A considerable time has elapsed since the Author was first made acquainted with this astonishing family anecdote, and he had often thought of dothing it in a poetical dress, being convinced, that by doing • o, and presenting it to the public, he would held out a les- ion of instruction to the rising generation, and offer an in- terestingly strange narration to the Irish Reader. This was his determination 5 but he was often led aside from his purpose by other subjects of major; nportance, that required his more immediate attention. He has now completed the task, and the happiness of communicating to the public, this series of unadorned fatSa, th'ou 1 the medium of the Chronicle. A TALE OF TERROR. " Here Hydra- headed Horror shakes " Her Gorgon locks of hissing snakes; " And Terror* s monstrous eye- balls roll, " To chill with panic fears the soul!— DUBOIS. Mr Lord grew sick— and my Lord must die :— And his death- knell soon is rung. And my lord is coffin'd in chamber high, Where two menials are stationed his corpse hard by, To watch till the morning's young, And they talk over many a wond'rou9 tale, As their tedious vigil they keep : Of the gliding ghost— of the speiStre pale— Of the white woman haunting the lonely vale— The headless man— and the Banshi s wail,— To banish the power of sleep. But the drowsy deity's wand of lead. O'er one of the maids he throws; And soon on a sofa descends her head, By the watch light pie— by her master dead. To indulge in a soft repose. But why thus shudders the waking maid ? And why does the chamber shake ?— * Tis her master that makes the menial afraid, Half- opening his coffin. lid, ghastly array'd— Alive— and from death awake ! * Ah! what is it troubles my lord's repose f" Thetrembling female cried, " Oh Susan 1 oh Susan! I come to disclose, " A terrible tale which no mortal knows!" Her glsomy- brow'd master replied. " dome, loose my arras, I wish to rise ; " And let me be all unbound :—- " Ah me! rhis body," he faintly cries, " Thi » - trmple of falsehoods, frauds, and lies, " SI'. '. i 1 never be laid in ground i" His arms unbound— his feet untied, Like a tenant of tomb he ros « 1 Poor Susan was panic- struck— terrified j And she stood like a statue, half petrified, As he rustled h'S funeral clothes! He bade her to follow— she scarce had power: To a store- room he led the mai. 1 j Where she's order'd to bake a large m iss of flour, His coffin to fill ere the midnight- hour 1 And her trouble shall be repaid. The work completed— the coffin closed; He bids her descend the stairs: Oh how gloomy he look'd 1 and how discomposed ! As a room under- ground which he open'd, exposed The wea'th of h' » worldly cares ! In this secret depot, a heap there lay, Of vessels, both silver and gold : — < 1 For these," oh, he cries, " I have turned away. My faithfullest servants, for many a day; " With their characters lost—, without wages or pay; " And for these I their lives have sold! " When they justly demanded the wages due, " Or from service requested to go; " Some vessels of worth, would soon vanish'd from view 5 " And this was the place where my amrhi threw, " The cause of my servants' woe. • J For some have died on the fatal tree— *' Some linger'd in prison long, " For debts which they never contract d with me : " And some were sent conviils far over the sea. " And 1 have done all this wrong ! " Oh ! I have done all this, and a great deal more! " I have mnrder'd them in their beds: « ' And, alas 1 for the sake of this perishing er « . t' Against their fellows, my crimes I swore, " Who have suffered, and lost their heads! Now of all those wrongs, which I've been the cause, The world has nothing known; " But I've only imposed upon human laws, " For heaven is just!" here, he made a pause, " And uttered a horrible groan ! 11 But Suean, alas' you have more to know ; " And here you must solemnly swear, B That you'll never divu'ge, to friend or to fot, " Thy master's sad fate, or thy master's woe, " ' Till death in your face shall stare." To his lady's bureau he nejc repairs, And takes fi ve score guineas of geld, Whirh he offers to Susan but Susan declares, She'll ii* ve nothing to do with her lady's affairs ; ' But Hi tale she will never unfold. Yet lie ' aegs her compliance, and tells her, if aught Of trouble shall fall to her share : If her mistress in wrath, her de. tro& ion wrought, Should her life be in danger, and could not be bought, Jf beside in the world to save her was nought, Then his tale she was free to declare. . • Oh, the dreaded hour is approachiog fasti And hi « Lordship's in agitation: JJe starts at the sound of the nightly blast, And 1 ke terrified villain, looks, wildly aghast, While his » oul is in perturbation. He sends the maid to the corridor, Expecting some news to hear; Yet nothing can Susan's eyes explore. But the objects she'd often seen before; Nor whisper assails her ear. His lordship paces like man in pain, Quick over the kitchen floor ; While the blood is boiling in every vein, Arid the perspiration's descending like rain, From every weeping pore. Again to the corridor Susan's sent; But quiet and silence reign si " His Lordship is dreading some evil event ( Said Sue, as she goes on the same intent) " Yet who can this mystery explain ?" She cees— tho' she waits not long to gsze, But swift to her master flies :— « ' My Lord, the corridor's all in a blaze, " Such a sight 1 have never beheld in n « y days, " Nor shall such ever meet my eyes! " A chariot— a driver, and horses of flame. " All shrouded in lambent fire; " Oh! I saw such things as it shocks me to name ; " But whence do yon think have these hell. fiends came, " In their blue- btazing frightful attire I" Thus Sue —' As her master shook his head :— " Oh innocent Sue!" he cried— You know not the horrors that meet the dead, « When this swift- fleeting, transient life i3 fled :— " Oh mortals! how vain is pride ! " Oh Susan! that chariot awaits for me, " For the cruelties I have done : " Man! why was Heaven created for thee, " When it shuts out the vot'ry of perfidy, From light, and from Glory's Sun ?" He hastens away to the chariot of fire :— He enters, in Susan's view :— Oh Heavenly Father ! the prospedt was dire, As she saw him assume the infernal attire. Which the dxmons around them drew !— All shudd'ring with terror she turned aside, From the vision- disgusting scene :— When she turned again, no chariot was found : It had epen'd a way through the yawning ground; And all was again serene The funeral morn at length arrives; And the solemi! procession begins • The black- plumed hearse to the church- yard drives, By citizens followed, and citizens' wives; Each talking of men who lived criminal lives, And his I. ordship's en « abled sins. The coffin's interred, and each home repairs— And my Lady now all atone, Instead of preparing for evening prayers, Thinks better to look o'er her household affairs, And thus finds that her treasure is gone. The maids are examined, who waked my Lord « Poor Sus in most guilty appears ; And soon a dark dungeon's recesses afford. The innocent female cold lodging and board, And a shrine for her sighs and tears. The Assizes approach— and the trial motn, To Susan unwelcome comes :— The charge is good— for her guilt is sworn, And sorrowful Susan is left forlorn ; For away to the tree of the tremors she's torn, ri Attended by solders and drumj. Alas 1 poor Su « an ! you're come to die, For five score guineas of gold !— Which (' twas sworn) was found in vonr custody, Soon after the night which you watched on high, By your master, in coffin cold. Those said that her crime was of blackest hue, Who spuke with malignant breath ; Rut many in sorrow assembled to view. The tragical end of unfortunate Sue, On the sham-:- giving scaffolj of death f. " And must I die on this shameful tree," To the Sheriff poor Susan cries ; " Can nothing afford some comfort to me ? " And may nothing reverse the har » h decree, That hurries me to the skies 1* Alas can interest, lo* e nor poiyer, " My life from destruction save ; " Must I fall like a frail, untimely flower, " Beneath the storm- winged wintry shower, " That hastens it to the grave ?" " No ! nought," said the Sheriff, " can save your life ; " For the laws and thy Judge are just. " For life, you will soon have na cause for strife; " As you'll shortly be under the Surgeon's knife i " For die, guilty female, you must!" « Then if interest; wealth, and love won't save, " My life from this shameful tree ; " I'll rescue myself from a premature grave ;" Said Sue— but the Sheriff said, fear made her rave, And brought on insanity. " No ! Sheriff!" she tried, " I've a story to tell; " A mystery I'll now unveil, " Will soon all the thoughts of my guilt dispel; " And I place at defiance the powers of hell, " To contradivSk my tale I ,, With wonder the multitude round her press, To hear what she has to say-; She tells them the cause of her present distress, From beginning to end, neither more nor less; While her hearers are seized with dismay. Some doubtfully listen— while many believe, For her's is a wondrous fcale ! But the Sheriff declares, that he cannot conceive, - How her terrible tale can her life relieve; Or unwitnessed procure her a Royal reprieve ; But they carry her back to jail. The Sheriff, the Judge, and a multitude mere, And Susan among the rest, Repair to the castle, and find out the door, Which concealed . so much treasure in vessels of ore : In the vault of her master the dough they explore, And his coffin nought else possessed. <• O Satan ! Susan!" is all the cry— " Yes! Susan, yonr life's your own :— •* Those scenes have unravelled a mystery, « Of avarice, wickedness, perfidy, " The greatest was ever known!" Her pardon's granted— and low poor Sue, Is loved by her mistress more j For heroic conduit— fidelity true ; And for fortitude such as the world n> ' er knew, Evinced by a woman before ! AUGUSTUS.

The shoemakers are better in this respect, and many of them are sensible reflecting men; but the frequent pressure on the stomach, in time, leads to disease; and no men are more subject to dys- pepsia, which is generally the precurser of gas- I trodynia. The complaints of both these descrip- | tions of workmen would be materially diminished, by using exercise out of doors, baths, and fric- tion, whenever they could be practised; and avoid- ing smoking and drinking. It is dreadful to reflect that so much of the public revenue arises from sources which every well- wisher to mankind must deprecate— spirits, tobacco, and lotteries. To prevent the mischiev- ous consequences whicty continually result from these powerful agents, t& e duty should be so high, that it should at least operate as a check. At present, numbers of the lower orders of society have, in a great degree, given up drinking beer, which, to be sure, is poor enough, and substitute gin ; to increase the effect of which, they gene- rally use tobacco. The effects of this practice 1 soon become obvious; and, notwithstanding all our justly boasted- of improvements in whatever tends to ameliorate the condition of man, I am confident, from what I observe in my practice at two large Dispensaries, that in no long period the population of the country will be seriously affect- ed. It is not enough that the population be nu- merous, it should be sound and healthy. But the . offspring of dram- drinkers are, in general, diseas- ' ed from their infancy, and are seldom reared up to form useful members of society. An Account of the.

Our readers will lament to learn that two of the pfoudest ornaments of modern literature have for some time, been afflicted with total blindness We allude to Mr. Arthur Young, a philosopher and patriot, whese usefulness has never been ex- | ceeded, and never can be exceeded in the annals of | Britain ; and Dr. John Wolcot, the most original poet of the age of George the Third. Mr. John Blenkinsop, of Middleton, near Leeds, : the meritorious inventor of the carriage to go on pinions, by steam, writes to the Editor, that at ! present he has a waggon at work, which conveys i 100 loads of coals a day over the distance of l- i i miles each way, each waggon weighing 3\ tons, j The salutary advantages of Vaccination are \ clearly shewn in the following calculation :— Na- tural small- pox, 10,000 cases give 1000 deaths, or one in ten ; inoculated ditto, 10,000 cases give 20 deaths, or one in 500; vaccination, 10,000 cases give 10 failures, or one in 1000, and no deaths. Whence it appears, that where there are 10 failures of vaccination there are 20 deaths from small- pox inoculation, not to mention the incal- culable numbers destr6yed by spreading the small- pox contagion. The number of prisoners committed for trial in England, Scotland, and Wales, in the course of last year, was 6941; of whom, 587 received sen- tence of death, and 59 were executed. An Observer, having lately amused himself with sending up a considerable number of small air- balloons, discovered that, as the balloons as- cend, they have, as usual, got into different cur- rents of air at different altitudes, and he noticed that when the wind below has changed it has ge- nerally got into that quarter from which the up- per current had previously blown. For example, he sent up balloons which went off with a north wind ; but having attained some height have got into an east wind, and lastly a south- west wind; when the wind below from the north has changed it has become east; this wind h is shortly after given place to a current from the south- west; and he so repeatedly found this to be the case, that he has been induced to think that the changes in the wind always began first from above.
