Citstrorontrigo, August 22, 1812. When the Eirl of Wellington transferred his head quarters from Moj:; dos to Cmellar, the Gallician di visions, then o. spying La Nava and Polios, crossed the Douro again, add G- neral- Santocildes established his head quarteas in ValladoSid.— On the 7th instant Tordesillas capitulated and the siege of Toro was un- dertaken, but with means very insufficient. Oh the 12th the enemy advanced, with about seven thousand infantry and about one thousand live hun- ! . hed cavalry, from Palenciif towards Vrfliadolid, which was only occupied by one battalv n. Gen. Santo- cildes retired, taking the road by Torrelobaton tow- ards Toro : and it v. jr.: iscertained that their objects • were tp reliev. TeroVr.

The Spanish troops were withdrawn from before | j attacked Toro, which the enemy immediately abind- ned ; and General Santocildes, having collected all his force at Belver, on the Rio Seco, commenced his retreat on Bei. evente, near which place the enemy's cavalry came up with that of the 6th army ( about four hundred,) and in the affair which followed we sustained some loss. On the 19th instant Astorga surrendered, when the enemy had already reached La Bane'Za, from which place they have since retired, on hearing of the loss of that garrison, which was . of such importance as to lead them to these operations. I have no doubt, from the direction they have taken, that they will now withdraw the garrison of Zamora, and entirely aban- don the line of the Douro. Astorga was commanded by a General of Brigade, was defended by a Lieutenant Colonel of engineers, and the garrison was composed of two battalions of the 23d and one of the 1st infantry of the line— in all one thousand two hundred effectives at the " time of the surrender. effected their junction with the second column, which was destined to make a simultaneous attack upon the bridge of Bolueta. Gen. Mendizabel, with the guard, and Longa's division, arrived in time to re sist the enemy's attack; their principal efforts were to force the bridge of Bolueta, which was defended in the most gallant manner; the enemy suffering con siderable loss without being able to gain a single foot of ground ; their efforts on the left of our line proved equally unsuccessful. General Renovales at the head of his brave peasant soldiers, met their attack at every point; the enemy attempted in vain to force the two bridges of the town, and that of boats; night coming on the enemy retired to his position on the heights of St. Domingo el Morro and Begona. Arrangements were made foi a combined attack upon the enemy's position, bat find- ing that he had, upon being attacked by Renovales, who crossed the river in front of the heights of Ban- deras, early in the night commenced his retreat, no time was lost in pursuing him, and notwithstanding the yreat vdvantage he had in point of time, from the , jl ..' jr ' ty with which the division of Iberia marched^ !

The enemy retired from La Bane'za on hearing of the fall of Astoiga, and took the direction of Zamora ; they evacuated the latter place on the morning, of the 27th, retiring by Toro towards Valladolid.

DOWNING- STREET, SEPT. 12. Letters, of which the following are extracts, have been received by Earl Bathu- st from Lieutenant- Co- lonel William Parker Carrol, dated Zornoz. i, 24th August, and off Portugale. tte, 26th . August. j Zopioes, August 24. I have the, honour to acffOidnt^ j'u, that on tbe liJth instant, General Rouget, with a foVfce' oPrltiHy three thousand men, advanced from Duiango to attack Bilboa. General Renovales took up a position on the left bank of the river, having his right on the heights of Bolneta and Ollargan, defending the new bridge of Bohieta *, his reserve at Gastrejana. A soon as the enemy's force was ascertained, General Renovales formed his plap of attack ; part of the vanguard and Campillo's regiment were to pass the river at I'ortugalette, and proceed to the heights of Santo Domingo, to attack the enemy's right at day- break on the 14th, whilst General Poilier, with the van- guard, attacked the enemy, who were in posses sion of the two bridges in the town, and the troops at the bridge of Bolneta and the heights of Ollargan were to attack the enemy's left, which was strongly posted on the heights of Bggona and el Morro. At three o'clock on the morning of the 14th, the attack commenced with great vigour, and after a heavy tire of four hours, the enemy was driven from the bridges of the town, and from the heights of Begona and Morro ; and at nine o'elock they commenced a precipitate retreat towards Zornoza, pursued by Ge- neral Renovales' division, and the van- guard, headed by Pualiar : had the troops which were to have at- tacked the enemy's right arrived at the appointed time, the victory would have been most complete, and probably General Rouget, with the greater part of his troops, would have been cut off from Durango.— Their loss on this occasion far exe;* eds ours, which was twenty killed and fifty wounded. It was highly gratifying to see the steadiness of the newly raised troops of General Renovales' division. Too much praise cannot be bestowed on their Chief, in whom they place the greatest confidence, and who is inde- fatigable in his exertions to complete and organise his division. Since 1,5th we occupied Galdacano and Zornosa, our advance close to Duiango, which point the ene- my have strengthened, having two guns on the bridge of Yurreta, and occupying several houses in the town ; they have also an encampment on the left of the town, on the heights of Santa Lucia and Betuno. On the night of the 20th, we received intelligence that the enemy were moving to attack us, and that a column had marched to Orduna, the high road from which to Bilboa joins the road from Zo, noza to Bil- ' boa, about a mile from the latter town. Gen. Men- dizabel determined to fall back and wait the enemy on the left bank of the rivei, in nearly the same posi- tion as that occupied by Gen. Renovales on the 14th instant. , On the night of the 21st the enemy advanced from Durango in three columns, two bv Zoi noza, the other by Villaro, with a view of possessing themselves of the heights that led from Arrigorraga, and flanked those ot Bolueta, which was the right and the key of our position. Renovales's division occupied from the heights of Bolueta to those of Olaviga, which sup- ported our left, covering the bridge of St. Anton, the wooden bridge, and the bridge of boats. At day- break on the morning of the 22d, General Mendizabel with part of the vanguard proceeded to attack this column, directing that the division of Iberia should meet us acrArrigorraga. Dispositions were made which seemed to ensure the destruction of this column. The enemy on finding we were in pos- session of the bridge of Arrigorraga and roads lead- ing to Bilboa, changed their direction, and by a most 1 rapid march, favoured by the thickness of the woods, became a confused and disorderly flight ; insomuch that they did dot avail themselves, as they might have done, of the several strong positions which the road from Zornoza to Durango presents. At one of the strongest of these positions they made an effort to stand, but the gallantry of the Commandant- General Longa, who, at the head of his troops, led the attack animating them by his example, who charged the enemy with a few cavalry and a small body of infan- try, obliged him to abandon this position, and fly for safety to the town of Durango. The enemy's loss has been very considerable ; we have taken some horses and prisoners. As yet I am unable to give you a detdil of this victory, as my at- tention was occupied in our right, and in the pursuit of the enemy wish the division of Iberia. The Genera! in Chief has not yet received the de- tails from the commanders of divisions. This victory lias been highly creditable to the Spa- nish army. The advantages which did result, and the confidence it inspires in this newly raised army will, 1 have no doubt, produce the very best effects. . The enemy's force appcar. s to have been from five to six thousand. We understand, from prisoners and deserters, that Rouget, Duvernette, and another Ge- neral, lately from France, commanded in this action. On board K. M. S. Venerable, off Portugalette, August 26, 1812. I have the honour to acquaint your Lordship, that we have j. ust received information that Caffarelfi, who is much exasperated at the failure and defeat of Rou- get, has marched a force of from 2500 to 3000 men to Durango, to reinforce Rouget, and that they pur- pose making another attack upon Bilboa. T am returning to join General Mendiz abel. The troops are in the highest spirits.

Ordinance of his Eminence, Cardinal Maury, Arch'ishop of Paris, respefling the suppressed Festivals. " JOHN SUFFRIBN MAURY, & C. SCC. " Having considered the Decree of his Emi- nence the Cardinal Legatp. published by the order of Government respeding the suppressed Festivals in the French Empire, as well as the explanatory instructions which were added to it in the month of July, 1806; h ving also considered the Circu- ' ar Letter addressed, a^ reeaMy to the order of his Majesty the Emoeror and King, to all the Arch- bishops and Bishops of France, on the same sub- je5t, on the 231 June, 1808, by his Excellency the Minister of Public Worship, who demands at this moment the fulfilment of the Regulations which it contains: " Wishing to establi> h an uniformity of worship in all the churches of the city and archdiocese of Paris, relative to the orders which have thus ema- nated, with the greatest harmony between the Spi- ritual and Temporal Authority, previously to our appointment to the Archbishopric of this city, we have ordained, and do ordain to all Reflors and Curates under him, individual responsibility, as follows: " 1st. We forbid to be announced in the ser- mon, or in any other manner, whether at the cele- bration of the Mass or in the pulpit, o> by bills posted up, the suppressed Festivals, even if it were only to declare their suppression, which has been fully completed, or to inform the Faithful that they are no longer bound to keep them as holidays, though permission is given to exhort them to at- tend Divine Service. We, however, ordain, that this Divine Service shall be henceforth performed without any extraordinary ringing of bells, which assimilates it to that of Sundays, because there ought not to be any other appeal to the People on those Festivals, than is conformable to the prac- tice on working days, without any solemnity what- soever, to distinguish it from the daily offices. 2d. Every species of invitation, given by any Members of the Church to the Superintendants of Manufactures, or to any other person, to assist at the aforesaid offices will be considered, according to the tenor of the letter of his Excellency the Minister of Public Worship, as ' a kind of an in- direct mode of evading the law for the suppres- sion of the aforesaid Festivals— a disorder which would lead to a diversity of opinion or discipline in matters of religion, and which would become a source of division and scandal. It is not at all the intention of the Government to prevent the Ministers of the Altars to perform in the interior of their Churches the usual offices ; but there is a ceremonial particularly reserved for the celebra- tion of Festivals, and which ought not to be used, unless on those days on which there is a cessa- tion from labour," " The excellent spirit, which actuates the Cler gy of the Diocese of Paris, does not permit us to doubt either their zeal, or their fi Islity, to c in- form to the wishes, thus announced, of his Mtjss- ty the Emperor and King. " We give charge to the Chancellor and Vice- Chancellor of the Archdiocese to superintend the execution of our orders in this behalf, and to make a report to us thereon.

Extract of a letter, dated Aux- Caves, June 20, 1812, re- ceived per brig George, via Philadelphia. " I send you herewith an accGunt of a series of pleasing events, the continuance of which will add considerably to our happiness in this island. Aii ex- press arrived here yesterday morning, with letters to the Commandant, from Port- au- Prince; Petion has got possession of St. Mark's, Cape St. Nicliol is Mule, and Gonaives, and is now advancing rapidly with twelve thousand men, to take possession of Cape Francois, Fort Dauphin, and all the north. Ail Christophe's soldiers have deserted him, and have joined the army of the South, to terminate at once this conquest. Christophe has fled into the mountains with only a handful of men; his Staff oflficeis liave left him, to join the President. It is very lucky such has been the case, otherwise, if he had succeeded in ntering the Cape, he would have murdered all the female inhabitants. He wTs followed closely till he took refuge in the mountains. All the north rejoice in the monster's overthrow, and daily send depu- ties to Gonaives, to request the President to advance. Next week he contemplates being in the Cape, and making that city his seat of Gavernment. The is- land was never more quiet than since this defeat of Christophe. The President has met with so mucl; encouragement, and is so much beloved by the sul- diers, that hereafter ereiyr advantage may be derived when at the head of the island^ Several vessels had already arrived from Jamaica ifKa St,. Thomas's, full ' of passengers, hearing of this news. I intend tfoin" to Cape Francois as soon as the troops are to be dis- armed, excepting a few to maintain order in the ci- ies, " As the Cape will hereafter become the head- uarters of Government, we may now look out every day for the President's Proclamation, recalling ail the former white inhabitants belonging to the island. It is reported that one to this effect has been already published at Gonaives, but it has not reached us here. Nothing hinders the troops entering the Cape, there being only a smail garrison of 300 men left there by Christophe, when on his march to attack Port au- Prince, and who are ready to join Petion. Their re- maining at Gonaives is in order to regul ate a few offi- cers, and place Generals and Commandants in their diffeient ports. It is thought that Cliristoplie bus got upwards of seven millions of dollars in his fort at Mora Nouva; this, added ta the treasury in Port- au Prince, may enable the President to re- establish, in some mea- sure, this island. By the last Proclamation we see that this sum is to be employed to that eff. cr. Chr- s- tophe's retreat to that fort is cut off, it being com- manded by a coloured man, and will be in our posses- sion in a few days. As soon as the north is conquer- ed, new regulations are to be made ; and in a s'lort time, under Petion's governm- nt, the whole island will become more flourishing than it has- been since the beginning of the revolution. Provisions of all kinds high and scarce. The following articles, with annexed prices, are mostly in demand:— Flour 20 dollars— Rice 8— Beef 23— Po. k 32— Herrings 10 — Codfish 8 per ql.— Ham 40 cents— Cheese 36— crates common ware 50 dollars per crate— Brown Soap 25 cts.— Leaf Tobacco 12 dollars per qui.— Lard 33 cts. per lb.— Writing paper, Glass- ware, very scarce, and in much de nand. C > ffee, plenty at 6 sous— Logwood, 12 doll irs per ton— Castor Oil, 1 dollar per gallon, and in abundance." A paragraph appeared in The Cumberlan VPulet • Ware's Whitehaven Advtrii er, of the 25t'l tilt" staling, that in a- n action respecting a hedge, tried at Newcastle Assizes, " it was dec1 tred by Mr. Baron Wood to be the law, th it he person to whom the hedge belongs has a right to five feet of his neighbour's field for a ditch or other pur- poses ; nay, that he may enclose five feet and plant it; and also claim five feet of any mineral which may be contained under that spies,"— This paragraph was copied into several London Papers, and has produced a letter from Mr. Baron Wood, to one of the Editors j in which his Lordship says— " It is an absolute falsehood, inserted by some malignant spirit with a view to injure me in my judicial character. I never did declare any such thing. I stated to the Jury that the ditch on the outside of the hedge, as well as the hedge, belong- ed to the owner of the field in which the hfedge' stood ; and upon this principle, because anciently, when the owner of the land made his hedge, he, at the same time, made the bank and ditch to . support it; both must have been made in his owa land, as he could not make them in any other per- son's land; and the question in the cause was, whe- ther the trespass was committed within or without the limits of the ancient ditch, which, perhaps, might be five feet wide." General Lingan, who was killed by the rioters at Baltimore, was formerly Collector of the Customs at Georgetown. He was a great favourite of General Washington, to whom he owed his appointment.— He was about 70 years of age. A contagious disease having made its appearance at Mazzaion, the Governor of Gibraltar t) as oidered that all communication between that fortress and Spain shall cease far the present. Though Gen. Sarrazin has ob'. lined his passports for Gottenburgh, it is yet a matter of douU if the Swedish Government will admit him into their terri- tory. The General, previous to liis obtaining his passports, acknowledged that the 12001. per . inn, MI was never offered him, but that lie asked 3000/:' per annum, as his just demand, end that lie iwokrd lipim l'JOOI. as a matter of course, becaus.- G-' P.. tier had die offer of that sum. BELFAST' CJMMRIiClAL CHilONICLE' Monday, September 14. A mail from Gottenburgh arrived this morning.— It has not brought intelligence from the Russian ar-. « iy of sd late a date as the last battles. The last Russian bulletin is of the 1,5th, the Russians were then at Katon, and near Ktasnoi. The Crown Prince of Sweden had an interview with the Emperor Alexander at Abo. He was re- ceired with the most marked distinction, and was honoured with the highest Russian Orders. Lord Cathcart was present, and received the highest order ® fSr. Alexander Newsky. Accounts arrived this morning from Sir James Sau- rtiarez, Commander in Chief in the Baltic, detailing some partial actions between the Russians and the Fiench, in which the former have been successful.

There- had been a battle in the streets of Po- lotsk ; the F'ench were completely driven back with the loss of 7000 kii'ed, and 2,500 prisoners. Among the wounded is Marshal Oudinot, severely in the shoulder. The Russians made a sortie from Riga, in which they took eight guns and 500 prisoners. It is estimated that since the commencement of the war the Russians have, made 14,000 prisoners. FROM THE ST. PETERSBURG!! GAZETTE. OFFICIAL WARLIKE INTELLIQENCF. , The Commander in Chief Barclay de Tolly in forms his Imperial Majesty, thai Baron Winzmgerode ha » transmitted him the following report: " I have forced the enemy to abandon Welish, Us- wart, and the suburbs of Suraseh ; I have sent strong patroles to Newel, and consequently the town of Wel- iekye, Luki and the St. Petersburgh road are now •- cure." The report which was. spread of the enemy having pushed into this neighbourhood in great force, proved to be false. The whole of his joint force is assem- bled at Witepsk, and he has hitherto not only sent Strong detachments of cavalrv to spread terror, but chiefly to collect provisions for his army, of which they are in extreme want. Prisoners are daily sent in to me. The Commander in Chief, Barclay de Tolli, has transmitted the following Report, dated 3d August [ 15th). 1 have the happiness to inform your Im- perial Majesty, that, the enemy, harassed by Major- Gen. Winzingerode, from the side of Welish, and Mai- Gen. Krasnow, having with his detachment got on his flank, has withdrawn himself from Porets- chja, and co" 00.111' atcd his force at Rudna, and my right flank bein^ by this means secured, I have march- ed fo'-^ ards wit* the whole arm)', and on 2d August took a position- at the village of Wolkowa, where my right wing leans on the Kasplen Lake, and I have the river Wodra in front. The second army was to hare taken position at Nadwa, but hav- ing received- intelligence. of the enemy having crossed the Dnieper at Dubrowka in great numbers, and were I marching towards Loedy, Prince Bagration order- ed the 7th corps under Lieat.- General Rajowski to cross to the- left of the Dnieper to reinforce Major- Gen. Newerowski, who was stationed at Krasnow ; the rest of the tro w of the second army have this morning taken possession of Nadwa.- In the course of last night, intelligence arrived that the enemy having left Ruda and Liosna, was march- ing for Lubawitschy. © n account of this circum- stance, the remaining part cf the second army, which is at present at Nadwa, will this day move to Katon, on the left of the Dnieper, and the 6th corps will oc- cupy Nadwa. All the light troops under the com- mand of Gen. Platow, assisted by the detachment under Count Pahlen, are in pursuit of the enemy on the road to Lubawitschy. By the mail from Lisbon we have received papers to the 30rh last. The French have evacuated Se ville. This operation commenced on the 17th, and was comoleted on the 21st. Previous to Soult's de- parture he published a manifesto, in which he says, he confidei his magazines and hospitals to the inha- bitants, to be restored upon his return. In this mani- festo he acknowledges the defeat of Marmont's army, and says he is going to revenge that disaster, but that the rapidity of . his march makes it necessary that he should disencumber himself of every thing that might retard it. He is Supposed to have taken the road for Cordova, from whence he will continue his route along the Guadalquaver Andujar and Bayleo. Jo- seph Bonaparte, it is now said, has taken the Arra- gor. road. A Mail arrived on Saturday from Malta and Gib- ralter, bringing advices from the former to the 25th July, and from the latter to the 23d ult. By the ac- counts from Malta we learn, that the expedition un- der Admiral Freemanfle had arrived at Lissa. It had sailed last' from Malta. It consisted of between 5 and 6000 troops. On 16th day of July last there was a ihost vio- lent thunder storm at Messina and on the " Opposite coast. The castle of Scilla was struck by the light- ning, and the powder magazine blew up The Com- mandant and 30 so| diws were kil. ed. The fire com municated to the magazines and the'houses in the fort, had burned for three, deys. A vessed had arrived in nine days from Smyrna, by whfch it was learnt'that the plague stdj continued its- ravages there, and rather increased than otherwise. A French lugger has been sent into the Downs ; she is from Calais, and the Captain reports, that it was believed at Calais that Bonapsrte had lost 20,000 men and five" Generals in the last battles with the Russians. Bonaparte and his Staff were, at one time surrounded by the Russians, but observing, a weak, part, he took advantage of it and effected his escape. During the . last week 50,000 stand of arms have been shipped from the Tower fot. the Baltic— they were sent off in great, haste. We have not learned whether they Are destined for Sweden or Russia— if for the former, we should consider it as « proof that the expedition from that kingdom will yet sail dur-: ing the present season. The Grand Seignior had privately ratified the treaty with Russia, and appeared determined to ob- serve it strictly. There had been'no official publica- tion of the terms, but all doubts on the subject were removed by the liberation of the Russian prisoners of vi, ir, who had obtained passports, and money to bear their expences to their own country. A letter from St. Andero of 31st ult. states, that the French had made another attack on Brlboa, with 8000 men, and had succeeded in retaking posses- sion of it. The strength of the Spaniards consists of 10,000 men, Lut. it is widely . dispersed arpong the mountains in the vicinity of Bilboa, on " which they meditate a fresh attack, as soon as the diffeient corps can be assembLd. THE - IRISH RECRUIT —. Patrick Madnallv, a mower, from Shannon Water, happenine to attend the Lamb Fair of Lockerby, displayed singular adroitness in wielding an oak plant, to tbe no small edification of thousands nf t- he men of An- nandale, who have a high relish for such talents Patrick, however, attracted the notice of a recruit- ing Serjeant, who prevailed npon him to accept of a situation as a private soldier under his be- loved Sovereign : he received his bounty, and learned to march and cOunter- march to the sound of certain instruments of music. One day the Serjeant endeavoured to correct an awkward slouch in tbe gait of Patrick, and for that pur- pose laid a small knotty cane ovpf his shoulders. Delighted with this discipline, Patrick snatched up an old spade- shaft, and applied it to some purpose along the crown of the Serjeant, and then over his shoulders. Patrick was chid for this, and ordered to be recompensed wi} h sundrv scores of lashes Across and along his naked back— " Ah !" said Pat, " I have mistaken your fancv faith—/ thought it was fighting men you wanted! Good morning."— Next day the party received a note at the late lodging of Patrick Macnally, advising, that he would be found cutting tur! in the Big of Allan, if they thought worth their while to look for him in so nasty a place ! DUBLIN, Thursday, September 17. -* ' POBBERY.— On Tuesday evening, soon after eight o'clock, a respeffable man named Holmes, who resided many yearsin the neighb' urhood of the B'ack Rock, was stopped on the road, near Duff's f nit- shop, when coming into town, by three very well dressed men. They were indeed so unlike highway robbers, that when they demanded his watch and money, he scarcely believed them in earnest, until two secured his arms, and produced pistols, while the third rifled his pockets. They took his watch, four guinea- notes, and eleven ten- penny pieces. Mr. Holmes having expressed an anxiety for a ring which was taken with the watch, one of them snapped the chain with violence, and flung that part to which the ring was attached, over the garden wall. Thev then desired Mr. Holmes to go to town, and by no means to tell anv one he might meet, of wlrat had passed.— ( Freeman's Journal) , On Monday night, two villains attempted to enter the hoqse of Mr. Wills, in Paradise. Row, through one of the two- pair windows. Their ob- jeft, however, was frustrated through the vigilance of a maid- servant, who gave the alarm so teso. lutely, though she happened to be the only indi- vidual at the time in the house, that they thought it prudent to retire. Last week as a beautiful girl, about foilr years old, belonging to Mrs. Crane, near the Bull. ring, was playing about the house, she unfortunately fell over a kettle of boiling water accidentally placed in her way, and was scalded from head to foot in a dreadful manner. The poor little inno- cent survived, enduring the greatest, agony, until Thursday evening, when the happy interposition of Providence put a period to her sufferings ( Wexford Journal.) Oil Wednesday last, a most daring outrage was committed at 11 o'clock in the forenoon, in the town of Adare, county Limerick, the particulars of which are as follow :— The Sheriff of the county having seized, under execution, a quantity of cattle, belong- ing to James Pureed, of Kildimo, a faction, consist- ing of about 300 in r. umber, assembled, with stones, to rescue them, which the . Sheriff perceiving, suc- ceeded in carrying off the cattle, when he was short- ly pursued by John Purceil, Patrick Bum, and 12 others, mounted, and armed with pistols, swords and blunderbusses, by one road, while the roads to Lime- rick and Rathkeale were surrounded by others in hundreds. The horsemen took the road leading to Rathkeale, conceiving that the cattle had been taken tl ere. Nor did they discover their error until they htd gone a considerable distance, bat the Sheriff, con- ceiving he would have been pursued, took a different road, and reached the town of Adare ; when, in a few minutes after his arrival there, the factious mob, on horseback entered the town, where a detachment of the Monaghan regiment are stationed. On their entering the town, Lieutenant Hanna, commanding the military, with a promptitude and intrepidity which entitle him to great applause, instantly seized Burns, who was armed with a pistol, which he made two ef- forts to discharge at Mr. Hanna, but without effect, owing to some paper having remained in the pan, to preserve the priming, but Mr; Hanna succeeded in securing the fellow and the pistol, when immediately John Purcell went up to the Sheriff and demanded the cattle, which he refused to give, and Purcell alighting from his hoise, took a pistol from under his coat, and was in the act of cocking it, when it was perceived, by the Serjeant, who immediately wrested it and secured Purceli ; the rest then fled, leaving a blunderbuss behind, which was also taken. Purcell and Burns were immediately transmitted to the county jjt. il, and examinations sworn against them. SECOND EDITION. C'orrespo:- tent- Office, Thursday, 4 oy Clock. We have received Madrid Gazettes, and Ger- man, Danish, and Swedish Journals, from which we hsve made the following extracts:— [ FROM THE MADRID GAZETTES.] £ xtra< 5l from the firat Gazette published. at Madrid, after its restoration. MADRIP, AC. G, 6.— The many and important events, which have passed in this capital, from the 10th inst. to the present, are of such a nature as to fix the attention of all Europe. A simple and faithful narration of them, wilj cause tears of plea- sure to be shed throughout Spain, the allied na- tions, and eyey part of the world, where virtue is not! a mere name, at the same rime that they draw forth groans of fui y and despite from the heart of Najjoleoh and his vile satellites. They are the triumjili of the constancy, valour, and patriotism of the Spaniards, and of the fidelity, generosity, and perseverance of the allies, are eternal stigmas of ignominy on despotism, ambition and tyranny — a terrible lesson to tyrants, a salutary admoni- tion to the people. To prevent co fusion in our ideas, we will fol- low in chronolo ' ical order, as our rea ! ers have , i rig- lit to expect from us a narratrve of events in the same order in which they happened. AUGUST 10— As soon as accounts were receiv- ed of the battle of Salamanca, symptoms of in- quietude and perplexity were observed in the whole court of Joseph Napoleon, in consequence of ' he total rout of the army of Marmont. The alarm and dread, which this occasioned to the French and their parH'zans, were the greater, as thev had a blind confidence in their strength, con- ceiving their troops to be invincible,, notwithstand- ing the many defeats they had suffered in Portu- gal ard Spain. This prejudice being thus dissipated, the per- turbation and confus'on m which they were, suf- ! ficiently shewed to the; inhabitarits of this capital, the real state of affairs, which they in vain endea- voured to conceal. Tbe public joy was manifest- " ed on all sides. The report of the great event was sppedily circulated among the patriots; and the police wai in despair, - seeing that all their ef- forts to prevent it were in vain. In vain they employed threats— in vain they doubled their spies — in vain tliey filled, the dungeon's with patriots— in vain they circulated reports which nobody be- lieved. Common fame soon made known the death of the Marshal, and the destruction of his army; and even the lowest of the people were acquainted with the. news. Tbe^ lepgr'iire. or rather the^ Ight oOiyseph, his court anc" partisans, having been detflfrt. ined in repeated councils of state, it chanced, that about six in the evening of the 9th, some soldiers, who, had been stationed to observe the heights of Gita- d. tirama, gave notice, that they saw English batta- lions descending them. Consternation immediate- ly spread through the palace— orders and coun- ter- orders were given, and at length it * was finally determined to leave the city at six in the morning efthelO h. This antiqlp » tir> n incieased the dis- order of ihe fugitives; in the greatest confusion the immense convoy orthe intrusive Government was coliefled : mourning and lamentation spread through all the houses of their partisans. Some cold their moveables for half their value, or what they could get, others gave them to be kept by their friends, and others asked that favour from the insurgents themselves, whom but a few days bef. re they had lo'ked on wi; h disdain. They turned into money all they could save- of the wreck of their property. Unfortnnare fugitives, they wet* not yet acquainted with the Fiench— they did not yet know that the money and the precious effeffs, which they had with « so much difficulty collected for their subsistence on their jiurney, would shortly become a prey to the rapacity of the troops which escorted them. Many were rob- bed by their escort, before they got half a league from Madrid. In fine, they departed at ten in the morning, covered with disgrace and opprobrium, and accompanied by public execration and their own remorse. The populace of this capital were the joyful spectators of the exit of this caravan, and distinguished themselves by their prudence and tranquillity, ;: nd with a noble generosity, even pitied the misfortunes of those, who had so gross- ly ' nsuhed and oppressed them. , Uth.— Arrib^ s and Alagulo, Ministers of Police to the pretended Kiiigl canie ; o Madrid on the 10; h ; the formejfwirh large extort, and the lat- ter accompanied by three soldiers of Maneos.— B -' h went off at five in the morning of this day, with the remainder of the French troops. It is said, that the objefl of their coming was to burn certain papers, and to save Some effefls, which, in the hurry of their retreat, they had negle^ ed to carry awav.- 12th The French garrison shut itself up in the Retiro. From this time the shops were opened, which had been shut up for two days, from the fear which all had of the proceedings of the Fi ench on similar occasions of confusion ; and this capital began to respire, after the slavery by which it had been oppressed. Brave and generous allies, you meet not with- er Madrid) the solemn pomp due to your tri- umph, but the people manifested to you their heart— that heart as constant in adversity, and firm in its resolution, as tender and feeling in its gratitude. AUGUST 13.— AR six in the evening the Retiro WES blockaded and invested. On this day was proclaimed by order of his Excellency the Duke of Cindad Rodrigo, the Constitution formed by the General and Extraordinary Cortes of the Kingdom, D. Carlo de Espar. a, Governor of this capital and its province, and Marshal Megealeva, presiding at the afh The con? burse of people was immense, 3ndv< fppeared to have multiplied the inhabitants of the capital, which had been re- duced to less than a third. This ceremony was performed amidst the roar of the enemy's cannon, who made their last efforts to defend the inclosure r> f the Retiro, and we may say, that at the same time we heard the last groans of oppression, and the first voice of independence; we saw ourselves freedi from the horrid black load of disgrace at the same kistant, as appeared to our eyes the luminous torch of our'felicity. Oh, happy day ! Oh,' certain presage of our future felicim! Oh- warriors of Albion, of I. usi. lailia, and affiifled Spain— by" you we are free ;— Oh I fathers Of- the Otmtry; by you we are happy, AUGUST I4vj~ Tlie Retiro surrendered at noon, at the time whjen- ihf.,. scaling- ladders were prepar- ed for an assault. The garrison, consisting of 1,900 men, marched out prisoners ; near 2,000 pieces of artillery,,> 20,000 muskets, and other ef- fefls; of which a more circumstantial account will be given, were foaqd in it. At the same time, we cannot omit the lively wish which the people manifested to again occupy this new Bastile, where French cruelty confined so many viflims; but the peo- le were prudent and moderate, and wished to avoid the sad recolleflion of their dis- grace, with the sight of their oppressors. On this same day, in virtue of the Royal Decree of the R. egency of the United Kingdom, issued on the ISrh Of March, in this year, the swearing to the constitution of the country took place in all the patches of this capital. The Council of this capital wishing to offer the Duke of Ciudad Rodrigo a proof of their gratitude, determined to entertain him with a magnificent Ball. The numerous and enlighten- ed concourse who assisted at it, the decorations of the Halls, the abundance of "- ines, fruit, $ cc. and the presence of the greatest General of Eu- rope, offered a picture worthy of admiration even to those more accustomed to those scenes. .

SECOND EDITION. Chronicle Office, Saturday Morning. We stop the press to announce the arrival at this Office, of London Journals of the 15th, by ex- press from Donaghadee. They contain the fol- lowing intelligence:— London, Tuesday, September 1: 5. FIFTEENTH FRENCH BULLETIN. We have received letters from Dov,- » - dated ar six o'clock yesterday evening, announcing th<* ar- rival of a vessel from Calais, with a few passen- gers on board— mostly English. The vessel al- luded to left Calais on Sunday evening. Before she sailed the Moniteur, containing the 15th Fiench Bulletin, had arrived. The Bulletin is. dated the 1st instant, and an- nounces another sanguinary confliil between the French and Russians, which we are grieved to state, terminated in favour of the enemy. We have not seen the Bulletin itself, nor do we know for certain that a copy was brought over in this vessel, though we think it highly probable; — but from the report of the pas engeis we learn, that after the Capture of Smolensko, the French advanced upon the retreating Russians, and for- ced them to another battle between that place and Moscow. ' I he confliff was dreadful, ani, according to the Bulletin, terminated in a cmplete viftory on the part of the French. The Russians are stated to have lost not less than 15 000 men, including in that number 11 of their Generals. The loss sustained by the vigors is stared to have been only 800 killed, and 1500 wounded. The passengers by the above vessel further re- port, that a French Commissary came on board just before she sailed, and desired particularly that they would state to any'British cruiser with which they might fall in, that Napoleon was advancing with great success and rapidity. Though we think - it highly probable that the advantages gained by the enemy are, as usual, greatly exaggerated in their official account, and their own loss much under- rated, we should ill discharge our duty to the public, were we to dis- guise onr conviction, that Napoleon has obtained a decided victory u'. on the present occasion— i How many such battles he can afford to fight— ! how many defeats our ally may be able to en- ! dure, we are but little qualified to judge. But while the Russians continue to possess sufficient equanimity and firmness, their cause is far from hopeless. In fact, the subjugation of such a country as Russia is impossible, if the rulers and the people be determined to maintaia their inde pendence; but the recollection of the way in which the last war was terminated, fills us with appre- hensions that the mind of Alexander may be sub- dued, and produce some hasty pacification, 6ven while the resources of his Empire and the hearts " of his people remain more than equal to all the dangers with which he is threatened » nor can our fears be considered as entirely groundless, when it is recollected that Count Romanzoff, whose French predilections have long been known, continues at- the head of the Russian Cabinet. It is supposed that Bonaparte is anxious to wie. trate to Nloscbw, in order to secure winter-< pt( ers for his armv, and abundant supplies.— ft is m. af. T of doubt whether the Russians will hazard a. batit in defence of that city. J " seph B m 4 parte, after majcing a shew of pro- ceeditVT to Valencia, is sai, d'. to have taken the" m » d to Ajrago-!. The report of his having been ' ten and his armv defeated, was transmitted to Sn H, j Popham by the Cure of Said*. ' Upwards ofiOiHf ? men have deserted his standard. i Captain Dvnelv, who was taken in rhe slcirr. isft. J which took place immediately before the- entnnc* « of th£ a'lied troops into Madrid, has witten lonje j to acquaint his friends that he is in. good halth, i and that he is treated with th.- greatesf kininsss bv ,- Tos'eph Bonaparte, whose army he accorjijani- i ed in flight from Madrid. Captain Dynelvhas constantly dined with Joseph Bonaparte, wlio al- ways placed him at his right hand at table. We have reason to believe that a Dissolution of Parliament is at hand— in fact the most! ncav'e preparations are making- by all parties for such an event, which it is confidently expected will lake place early in the ensuing month. On Saturday last, a bricklayer, named M'Atlay, of this To wn, after fatiguing himself with leaping, an amusement to which he was much attached, found himself considerably out of order, and not* withstanding medical advice was immediately procured, he expired in a short time. Being a man of great aflivity, it is suppo ed he hadbrst' a blood vessel by excessive exeriior Fwm his sob r, attentive, and proper condufl in his'tuiion of life, he is much lamen ed, and Ins left a « kiow and children to mourn his untimely fate. In these betting times upon extraordinary achievements, the following may be classed as one of the most sportingly curious :-— Two Irish labourers at Drurv- lane Theatre, squabbling, th£ other dav, about tbe number of bricks wbick one ot them had in his hod, the latter was tauntingly told by the other that they were of so little weigh: that he would bet him a full pot that he would carry him, bricks and all, on his own hod, up thi two scaffold ladders to the " top of the builiinjr.

The following letter from Dublin Castle, con. keying a pardon to the persrns therein mentioned, has been received by the Sheriff of the County of Antrim : Dublin Castle, Sept. 10, 1812. SIR— The Lord Lieutenant has directed pardons to be prepa red for Robert Knox, William Corkin, and Owen M'Cloister, convicts in the gaol of your county, under sentence of transportation, On condition of their giving' security for their future good behaviour; and I am commanded by his Grace to desire, that, upon such security beina; given, you will enuse the said Robert Knox, W. Corkin, and Owen M'Clois- ter, to be liberated.— I am, Sir, your obedient servant, ROBERT PEEL. High Sheriff, tyunly Antrim, or his Sub Sheriff. It may be recollected that the men alluded to are three of those convicted at last assizes, on the plo- secution of the Belfast and Lisburn Bleachers' Asso- ciation. The fourth man convicted at that time, Daniel M'Alister, remains to be transported, under the sentence, as direct corroboration was brought home against him, in the two indictments, on which he was found guilty. From some circumstances which occurred subsequently to the conviction, there • ppenred cause to doubt the credibility of the unsup- ported testimony of the informer, Joshua Walfenden, in consequence of which the Association withdrew any opposition to the petition to the Lord Lieutenant in favour of these three men, aHd a letter was written SO Judge Fox, who presided at the trial, to this pur- port, accompanied with, a request that they might be held to bail for their goad behaviour. This request, it appears by the Secretary's letter, has been complied with. Many malignant aspersions have been attempt- ed to be thrown on the Association, and some indivi- dual members of it, because they considered it to be their duty to let public justice take its course, by bringing those charged with offences to trial, and re- fused to listen to the officious interference of some vvho pronounced decidedly} without'taking the pains to enter into an impartial examination. The two respectable juries also came in for a share of the dash- iftg and unjust censure. But, when after the trial, rea- sonable doubts arose, the Association, and the mem- bers most active in the prosecution, knew what was due to their own characters and to a sense of honout and propriety, and immediately let the full benefit of those doubts operate in favour of the convicts, nor would they suffer themselves to be turned out of the strait- forward course by the bai ktngs of malevolence, or the provocations by which they had been impotently as- Sailed. Throughout the whole business, both before and after the trial, the Association acted with a scru- pulous attention to what appeared to them to be right, and their characters as an Association, and as indivi- duals, stand too high to be affected in the estimation of the public by unfounded assertions, brought forward is an intemperate and unbecoming manner. The following communication respecting Spirit Retailers has been received from Government by the Clerk of the Peace of the City of Limerick: Dublin Castle, lath August, 1812. SIR— In eonsequcnce of a representation made t* the Lord Lieutenant, that the Provisions of the 7th, " 8th, and 9th Sections of the 45th of George III.

Belfast, September lft ( I) SS BELFAST' COMMERCIAL CHRONICLE. COURT MARTIAL. TRIAL FOR COUNTERFEITING BLINDNESS. ; s BRIGHTON, SEPT. 10— The General Court Martial, pursuant to adjournment on Tuesday las , was re. npened at the Castle this morning, in con- tinuation of the defence of the prisoner, Martin Higgins, on the charge preferred against him by Dr. J. Vetch, Physician to the forces, for counter, feiting blindness. Soon after II o'clock, serjt. James Sloane was called and sworn.— To the first question put to him by the prisoner, if he had, at any time, evpr seen him open his eyes ? be replied, I have; and to the second question, if he had ever beheld him open bis eyes withon' any assistance whatever? he also replied in the affirmative. The other questions of the prisoner went to es- tablish the various confinements that he bad suffer- ed, and the hardships to which he bad been sub- jected ; in the course of which the witness observed, that he never recolleCted his being confined in the guard- house but once, and that was for retaining a pair of shoes belonging ' o Patrick O'Connor, a private soldier in the 102d rpgiment, for a few shillings which O'Connor was indebted to him, and that the said shoes were taken from him by i force, and his confiner snt in the euard- house the I consequence; thongh the witness subsequently ad- ! mitted that he believed he was taken from the j guard- house on another occasion, prior to a trial which he had undergone by Court Martial, though he could not speak positively to that part of the subjefl. On the prisoner's questioning him as to how he could speak doubtfully as to that particu- lar, as he supplied him with provisions during that confinement; he replied, that he daily served out provisions for upwards of 200 persons, and could not recolleCt whether the prisoner received bt « in the guard- house or not. In regard to the dead house, on being questioned by Dr. Vetch, in re- speCl to his motive for sending the prisoner thither, the witness said, that in consequence of the per- petual disagreements between the prisoner and the other men, Dr. Vetch o- dered him to be removed from the barracks, and a bed to be made upon the floor of a ward in the hospital for him ; but dis- agreements of a similar nature taking place in this quarter also, and the prisoner continuing bis com- plaints of ill- treatment, Dr. Vetch had direCtec witness to clean out the dead- house, and put a bed there for him ; that he bad done so, and that the prisoner had told him the first morning after his having passed the night there, that he was much more comfortably situated than he had been at the barracks. That the prisoner was only locked in the dead- honse during the first day, ' and that was without the knowledge of Dr. Vetch, who did not consider him in confinement, as he had the liberty of going out ai'. d in whenever he pleased. On the third or fourth Jay after the prisoner's re- moval thither, however, witness admitted that he received a message from him, about 10 o'clock in the morning, declaring that if the door of the dead- house was not opened, that he, the prisoner, might enjoy the benefit of fresh air. he would break every thing in the room. That this message wit- ness reported to Dr. Vetch, who ordered the dour to be opened, as Dr. Vetch did not consider the complainant as a prisoner. On being questioned by the prisoner, if Dr. Vetch bad not allowed an extra loaf per day, for some time, to a person, for having sworn that he had seen him open his eyes, witness sai « \ that there were two persons, both aCting as servants to Dr. Vetch, who were allowed a loaf a day each, be- cause bread was so dear, and not for the purpose the prisoner had mentioaed, and which loaves the DoCtor himself paid for. Mr. Chambers, the Surgeon of the 18th Hussars, who had examined the prisoner's eyes on the first day of the trial, requested to have his deposition on that occasion read over to him, which was im- mediately granted. In that part of his deposition in which he had stated, that he never knew the diseases of the eye- lids and the distinfl disease of the eye to affliCt any patient at one and the same time, he begged might be added, " that he yet conceived it possible ;" and which addition to his deposition was accordingly made. Lieut. T. Gainer, of the 8th Veteran Battalion was called into Court and sworn. be discharged. It appears that he has received a legacy of aft00 in the 5 per Cents, which the so- ciety can secure for their debt. T. bailey was opposed by Mr. Gurney, on ac- count of a defeCt tn his schedule. He was, theoe- fore, ' emanded. INSOLVENT DEBTORS. GUILDHALL, LONDON. Yesterday those Debtors confined in the two Compters, and the Fleet Prison, who were to be opposed, were brought up for that purpose. J. Franklin was opposed by Mr. Bolland, on, the 5.5th SeCtion of the Insolvent ACt, which enafls —" That no person who has taken the advantage of any former Insolvent ACt within the last five years, shall be entitled to the benefit of the pre sent ACt.— Mr. Hope, of the Office of the Clerk of the Peace for the County of Surrey, proved rhat the prisoner was liberated from the King's Bench under the ACt of 1S09— In defence the prisoner stated, that he had in faCt received no benefit from that ACt, as he had been found not entitled to it ; and had been again troubled for the same debts. He said he had documents in his pocket to shew, that such depredations had been committed on himself and his family, as the Lud- dites of the present day even, would tremble at.— He was remanded. J. Nevette was opposed by Mr. Adolphus, who stated, that the prisoner was employed as treasu- rer of the money belonging to a benefit society of women, held at the Red Lion in Butcherhall- lane; and entrusted with £ 84 to buy Bank Stock in his own name, which he did, but sold it out j and when they applied to him for the money, he said the truth was, he had robbed them and another society; it would, therefore, be a fair thing to di- vide all he was worth betwixt them. Some time after, they called on him for a fulfilment of his promise ; but he refused, saying, they could only put him in prison for it. Two of the members proved these faCts. Mr. Alley, for the prisoner, contended, that his client was not a servant, or agent, because none of the witnesses had proved that he received any wages ; besides in the bond he was only called Trustee. The Court being of the same opinion, the Recorder expressed himself under the reluctant necessity of ordering him to P. Cromar was opposed by Mr. Alley on the ground of bis embezzling the money of his em- ployer, be being a sarvant, or agent, as specified in the 55th clause. J. Allen, a bricklayer, stated, that the pr softer called on him one day, and he asked him if he could get him a bill of J630 dis- counted ? he said he could do it easily. He got the bill discounted ; but all the money which he received of him was only £ 13, at two payments. The prisoner's baker proved that he discounted the bill for him, deducting jglO, which the pri- soner owed him. The Court, however, being of opinion that the prisoner did not come under the denomination of servant or agent, intended by the Act, were compelled to order him to be dis- charged. Abraham De Mendez was opposed by Mr. Alley, on the ground of his having been out of the Rules during the time of his confinement.—- The prisoner was remanded. G. Glover was opposed by Mr. Alley, on the ground of h'is having received money under false pretences, ' ftl?. Alley called Mr. Sage, victualler, of Holles- street, who stated that he had been in the habit of ib'aliwr With, the prisoner, who was a grocer, in Rathbone- place. One day he called there, and wAs asked if he had much copper by him ; witness said he had a good deal; and was answered that a respectable tradesman at the West- end of the town wanted a£ 100 worth of c » pper. After making the necessary inquiries respecting this person ( Mr. Searle, bookseller, of Lower Grosvenor- street), he told the prisoner he would let Mr. Searle have the copper. The pri- soner said, he was going to send some sugar by his porter to Mr. Searle's, and if he ( Mr. S.) would give the man a shilling, he would take the copper in the truck. Mr. S. accordingly gave the porter the money ; and in a few days he call- ed on Mr. S arle, to get a bill for the money, but Mr. Searle said be had only received j£ 40 worth, and would only give a bill to that amount. When he called on the prisoner he would not return the money, nor giv^ him either tea or sugar for it He, however, got two bills for £ 50, Glover hav- ing owed him £ W before. In opposition to this the brother of the prisoner swore pciiively that he was the person witb whom the plaintiff had bargained about the copper, and he also swore that thp copper was offered to bt> returned to him, bur be refused to accept it, and raised a m<"> b about the door. Mr. Sage most so- lemnly denied this; and said, that when he asked for his money, the prisoner said he was going to call his creditors together, and he thou ht h" might as well pay hii'. afterwards. On the pari of the prisoner. Mr. Knapp contended that Mr. Sage having received two Bills of Exchange for his money, it did away ihe fraud; but this was over- ruled by the Recorder, and the prisoner was ordered to be remanded- SESSIONS HOUSE, HORSEMONGER- LANE. A fon^ rdiS- able portion ol^ the time of the Court was taken up in examining the schedules of the prisoner*, and the prisoners themselves, as to the nature of the property they are, under the ACt, ro abandon to their creditors. Some were sent back to amend their schedules. N. Tinking, a Dutchman, we believe, was op- posed by Mr. Lawes, on behalf of Messrs. Tullock and Co. on the grounds of his having fraudulently obtained from them a credit of 5000 guilders, un- der pretence of procuring th.- m a quantity of cheese from Holland, and also on the ground of his hav- ing had considerable property in his possession since his confinement. It appeared in evidence, that the prisoner, on obtaining a credit on Rotterdam for the sum al- ready specified from Messrs. T. undertook to freight a vessel, and to procure the cheese, and took his departure for Holland. He, however, came back shortly after, without either vessel or cheese, saying, that he had been forced tp leave the country, on account of the activity of the po- lice, who were in pursuit of him, and that he bad entrusted the management of the operation to his friend Mr. Vandersluys, but had brought however no vouchers to prove this. After the lapse of some time, neither vessel nor cheese appearing, Messrs. T. applied to the prisoner for some expla- nation of ' his mysterious transaction, when he seemed as much at a loss as themselves; nor could he account for the non- arrival of the venture, un- less his friend Vandersluys had cheated him, which, however, he thought hardly possible. Shortly after the prisoner left this country for the West Indies, and after an absence of four or five months, returned to London, where he was arrested at the suit of Messrs. T. the day after his arrival; a step which one of the partners declared they would not have taken, had they not thought hiwi guilty of dishonesty in the transaction. One of the servants of the King's bench prison proved, that on searching the strong- room where prisoner had been locked up, for having attempt- ed to escape, he found, concealed under some coals and wood, a pocket- book, a silk handker- chief, and £ 17i in Bank- notes, which were claim- ed by the prisoner as his own, and restored to him. Indeed, there was in the pocket- book a memoran- dum of the money in his own hand- writing. Mr. Nolan, ' in behalf of the prisoner, contend- ed, at some length, that there was no proof but this was a bona fde transaction on the part of the prisoner, who might really have been deceived by Mr. Vandersluys. His return to this country, af- ter his voyage to the West Indies, was not the act of a man who felt conscious of having commit, ted a fraud, which he knew must have been de- tected by that time. As to the property found in his possession since he had been arrested, it was not the produce of those guilders advanced by Messrs. Tu'loch, but the fruits of his industry in the West Indies ; nor was there a tittle of evi- dence against these two assertions. / The prisoner himself addressed the Court at considerable length in broken English, and strong- ly urged all the grounds his Counsel had taken in his defence. He was, however, remanded. SESSIONS HOUSE, GREEN- STREET. DUBLIN, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER., 15. The Recorder assisted by Alderman Car'eton, and Alderman M'Kenna, sat this day. Judith Brien stood indicted for st- alin?, on the 13th day of June, one trunk, two gold rings, and one gold watch. Margaret M'Donnel knows of some articles ssolen ; a gold watch and other things were sto- len out of her mistress's room ; Mrs. Bradshaw is her mistress ; met the prisoner when she was going out of the house with them ; did not deny having stolen ihem. She was found Guilty, and sentenced to be imprisoned four months. ( The prisoner first pleaded Guilty, but said she was in- sensible at the time of- the theft. She afterwards withdrew this plea.) John Fitzpatrick stood indiCled for assaulting Eleanor M'Donough, with intent to commit a rape. Mr. Greene opened the case, and made a feel- ing and impressive address to the Jury. He said that the present was a case of as great atrocity as ever came before a Court of Justice. The prisoner was a married man, of middle age, and had grand children. The prosecutrix was an innocent father- less child. It would be given in evidence that she had resided with her uncle in Great Britain- street ; and that the prisoner had been in habits of intimacy with the family at the time, an3 pre- vious to the commission of this nefarious offence. What the motive was, that could possibly have influenced him to the barbarity of which he . had been guilty, it was hard to conjecture, whether it was the gratification of a brutal and abominable lust, or whether it was owing to the absurd idea which the lower order entertained. - Mr. Brereton— lives in Great Britain- street, and lets lodgings; he had lived in such intimacy with the prisoner, that he ( the prisoner) bad access to all parts of Mr. Brereton's house. On the day of the commission of this base aCt, he went into the kitchen, where the child was sitting alone; he asked her to allow him to throw her on her back, which she, conceiving the request to be improper, though unconscious of what could be his real mo- tive, refused ; he then offered her two- and- sixpence as an- inducement to comply with his request, which she also declined. Upon this he threw her forcibly down, and effected his purpose so far as to convey to her the disease with which he was then infeCted—( Here there was a general expres- sion of horror at the infamy of the prisoner's ' con duCt.) Mr. Greene continued— He would probably have completed his intention, and have now been upon trial for his life, was it not that he heard a foot on the stairs, and desisted in consequence. Under those circumstances the child, from shame, and the feelings that may naturally be supposed to in- fluence her, concealed the whole transaction. After some time she grew ill, and her aunt being at a loss to conjeCture what could be the matter with her, brought her to the Richmond Hospial, where cbe was examined, and ' he nature of her complaint ascertained, by a skilful and respeCtable Su- geon, Mr. Todd. Her aunt was then, of course inform- ed of what had happened ro her, but she could not credit it. She was unwilling to believe that a female so nearly connected with her, had been defiled, and that tho, by a person whom she had been accustomed to regard in the light of a friend. The prisoner, however, upon being charged with • t, acknowledged the crime, and said, that his life was in their hands, but he hoped they would not prosecute him, as they knew how large a family he had. He also said, that he would give the un- fortunate girl, whom he knew he had injured, whatever money he could make up, as a compen- sation. They could not think, however, of agree- ing to any such offer. Mr. Greene concluded by expressing a confident hope, that the Jury would have no hesitation, after they had heard the evi- dence which be should produce, in marking by their verdiCt, their hearty detestation of the crime of which the prisoner had been guilty. Surgeon Todd— Is a surgeon; attends the Richmond Hospital; examined the child ; saw the prisoner at the Police Office ; the appearance of the disease in both was exactly the same. Cross- examined by Mr. M'Nally.— Has seen too many instances of the kind in young females, where there were no indictments for assaults. Mr. Brereton, the child's uncle, sworn.— Lives in Great Britain- street; knows prisoner; the child's father is dead ; she has been there 5 years ; her fa- ther was embarrassed ; is her god father as well as uncle, so ought to know her age ; she is ten years old last January ; knows the prisoner ; had much intimacy with him ; perceived the child ill ; could not conceive what was amiss with her ; brought her first to Surgeon Swan ; his opinion was such as that given by Surgeon Todd ; prisoner did not deny it, but said, he hoped they would consider his large family, and he would give the girl whatever money he could make out. The prisoner was found guilty, and sentenced to be imprisoned for twelve months, publicly whipped from the Exchange, and not to be dis- charged till he gives bail for his future good be- haviour ; two sureties in £ 25 each, and bimself in £ 50. The whipping to take place between twelve and two o'clock next Saturday. The Recorder informed the Sheriff that if the punishment which'the Court intended the prisoner should undergo, was not strictly infliCted on him, he would fine him ( the Sheriff) heavily. quantity increase ten or fifteen per cent, whers the blossoms were taken off ; there bein? very few small potatoes in these portions of the field.

About four acres of potatoes, from which he took the blossoms, in 1898, produced G5 bolls per acre, Renfrewshire measure. The same pr^ Clice has obtained for many years among the heritors in the glen of Lochwinnoch, as stated by the late Mr. MDowall in a letter to the President of ; he Biard of Agriculture ; in which he remarks, that if it shall be ascertained, by repeated experiments fairly made, that Potatoes ripen sooner when the fl. nvei^ are taken off, this consequence of the practice must be more valuable than the increase of weight. EXTRACT FROM WILSON'S SURVEY OF RENFREWSHIRE. Beneficial efFeCts of stripping the Potatoe of its Blossom, There have been many trials of the effeCts of pulling the flowers or blossoms from the potatoe, so as to prevent the seed from forming, and the result has been an increase of produce. One gen. tleman, Mr. Wilson, at Deanside, near Renfrew, prosecuted this experiment with great care and attention during the years 1803 and 1804, in fields of two acres, each year, cultivated according to the usual mode of drills, and planted in manure. By taking alternate portions of equal area, in. the same fuid; pulling the blossoms from some of these divi ions, and leaving others to ripen the seed ; attending in the autumn when the potatoes were taken up, and measuring ihe produce with great care, he uniformly found, both years, the BONAPARTE'S DEATH. T, the EDITOR. SIR— There are few occasions on which I am more inclined to blush for my countrymen, than when I find them eagerly grasping at any idle re- port of the death of Bonaparte. Although I agree with them that such an event might be beneficial to the world, I am not so certain that < kir whole attention ought to be directed to it, as if" our indi- vidual prosperity hung upon the slender thread of one man's life. There seems somewhat; covrard'T in trusting, neither to our valour, so conspicuously displayed, nor to the wisdom of our Councils, which has certainly not been altogether deficient; — but in what may be termed an .- leader.!, in which we can have no hand. B isides, Sir, are we quoe sure that the death of the Tyrant of France would produce all the happy effeCts which float in oar imagination ? Or rather, may I not ask, what it is that we do exp
