The following has been largely circulated through the French Armies in the North, of course we are not answerable for its authenticity ; but we must be permitted to say, that it is drawn up with much spirit, and contains many bold truths.—( Star.) " CONFESSION OF A CAFTA1N OF THE FRENCH GUARDS, WOWNDED AND TAKFN FRISONER BY THE RUSSIANS AT THE BATTLE 0 » FOLOTZK. " I have seen twenty years service, I fought tinder Dillon, who was assassinated by cowards. I was made a Captain in the field of battle,— where Bournonville pretended, that the only loss to the Republic consisted in the amputation of the finger of a dragoon!— This was the sera of the first in- vention of Bulletins: the art has since been per- fefled ; they now He with more probability, but not with less affrontery. I next served under Luck- ner, who was assassinated for demanding payment of his arrears. My next master was Beauharnois, who was most barbarously treated by the Patriots of France for the services which he had rendered them. Tired of serving executioners, I frequently risked my life, that I might cease to be their in- strument : I courted death— it fled before vhe: I am indebted to my temerity for a great reputation for bravery. I was offered higher promotion, but I refused it— thinking that any rank which brought me nearer those butchers, would make me more diredlly their accomplice. I did right j the can- dour with which I delivered my sentiments on all occasions would perhaps have produced my assas- sination, or my services would have been reward- ed as those of many brave French Generals have been. " I have fought under Pichegru. Brother Sol- diers, be not astonished if I shed a tear to his me- mory :— those only who knew him intimately can appreciate his worth— the times in which he lived were unworthy of him j he ought to have flourish- ed in thedays of Epaminondas, Camillus. Cincinna- tus, and Scipio: he is forgotten, or rather he lives in the hearts of a few brave men only. Posterity will never be acquainted with his virtues, for his con- temporaries, ashamed of having sacrificed him by their apathy at the moment when he devoted him- selr to his country, have been silent on that score. May his venerable shade rejoice at hearing his name still pronounced with tenderness and admir- ation in the desarts of Russia 1 " I was present with Moreau in his retreat from Suabia !— Moreau, the worthy pupil of Pichegru, and who has received in exile his reward for ser. vices, which, in his master, were requited with death ! " Here commences another epoch t— while the Brigands governed France, few of them were to be found in our armies: when they ceased to have a majority in the administration, they established an ascendancy among us. War, until then, al- though not a lucrative, was at least an honourable profession: plunder, and the horrors which, ac- company it, were prohibited ; but they were soon licensed in order to deprive us and render us the tradable pupils of Tyranny. We no longer re. cognize France as our parent country— we no longer fight far glory ! A blind subserviency to the Chief, who permits the pillage of the van- quished as a consequence of vi< Sory, and who ad- mits us to the foul orgies, while is reserves i « ( j himself the ( vlory. This is the ruling sentiment ; of the Soi l iers whom he commandsthis is the irnoulse Of their bravery and devotion ; I n" ej not tell you tint this Chief is our present Emperor, and that his assumption of the purple produced the sarm revolution in the army, which it has pro- duced throutrhbut Europe. " Every thing was new- modelled according to the views nf the man, who, from the moment of his being pi seed at the head of the army, conceive! the vast projeft of subduing the world! Figure to yourself what must have been my astonishmsnt; I, who was, until then, accustomed to read no'hing in the proclamations of my Generals, but what was conformable to strift military discipline and the true principles of glory. Alas! other maiiTit were then introduced into the military cids, and the same General who at the foot of th? Appe- nines, had said to his soldiers—" Beyond these mountains lies wealthy Italy— you are naked— yotl are hungry— there will vou find food and clothing in abundance!" This same General sought no more than to pervert the honour which ought to animate a soldier, and to excite his pas. sions, in order that he might see, that in success consisted the means of gratifying them. " We ceased to be Citizens:— from that day, when in the nations around us we saw only slaves destined to be plundered, we l(} st all our attach- ment to Our country to follow th? fortunes of an individual, to whom alone we looked for the re- ward of our bravery, and all the fruits of conquest. " Soldiers! I was in the expedition to Eoypt. I saw those very people massacred, to whom our General had said, that he respefled more than the Mamelukes " God, his Prophet, and the Alcoran;" I thought myself entirely under the influence of Mahometanism, when I saw from the Proclama- tions of Bonaparte, that the Divine Koran, which he had never read, was the delight of his heart, and that he intended to make a pilgrimage to the Tomb at Mecca, had he not been prevented by the Hero of Acre. " Thus we at one and the same moment em- ployed violence and lies, massacres and illusions: thus, under the influence of our Commander- in- Chief, we wee by turns executioners and Jack- puddings ( Saltim banques), soldiers and charlatans. And the soldiery, whose openness and candour were proverbial, were now compelled to become hypocrites, to facilitate the subjugation of man- kind. " After having been the soldier of the Repuh- lie, I found myself in some measure the Seid of a new Mahomet— a man who called himself the; Envoy from a GOD in whnm he did not believe, and the instrument of a PROVIDENCE whom he saw only in fatality. After having seen the Egyn. tians killed, their women ra ' .' * , ' Ivir pillagpd, I f^ und m^ sf ' ' conveyed Bonaparte to Europe How grmt were the transports with which he was received • I saw him on the 18th Brumaire— I was in his suite when he imprudently gave up Csnar and his for- tune, to the dagger of the first person who chose to think, that by killing him he would rid Francs of a Cromwell. He was my Genera!— I was not accustomed to respetf the men who menaced him, nor the Government which he dissolved, and I thought it my duty to save him— I put myself at the head of my Grenadiers, and I arrived in time to receive in my arms the fainting hero 1 • " From that period, I have seen every king dom of the Continent successively a prey to the wars excited by the ambition of Napnleon, under the pretext of shutting out the English from all its avenues; but with the real view of seizing upon the territories of all nitions— of overturning all the thrones which he had not established, an 1 of dispossessing all Sovereigns of their Crowns, which were not of his giving. S ildiers, I am choaked with grief and rage when I recollefl the horrors which have been brought upon the countries through which the French army has passed : at leaving Spain, I broke into a thousand pieces my sabre, stained with the blood of a brave and hon- ourable people. I have now been dragged by the Dsemon of War to the desarts of Russia, where your humanity has saved me from that death which I have long courted as a refuge from the horrors of a mind distrafled at the thought of lift, ing my arm in a cause which I detest, and for a tyrant who has so long been an objeft of my ab- horrence !" Singular way of Shop breaking.— Betwixt the even, ing of Thursday the 3d and the morning of Friday the 4th inst. the Old Viflnalling Socie'y Office in Rutherglen was entered into by descending the chimney, the house being only one story high, and a considerable quantity of silver taken from the till, but, whether being scared or otherwise dis- turbed, some silver was left behind ; the depreda- tor made his escape by removing the catband and bolts, and afterwards forcing the locks of the street door. On Friday forenoon, a search warrant was obtained, when a boy of the name of Mosts Kinnon, in the neighbourhood, was apprehended, not from any proof that was brought against him, he hav- ing strongly denied the fail, but from the uncom- mon smell of soot on his person and clothes, which was perfedlly felt at several yards distance; and when brought before a Magistrate, he acknowledg. ed his guilt, and part of the money, > 65, 15s. was recovered, he having hid it in an old Hatched house immediately adjoining the premises. The boy is an old offender, and was la ely liberated from Bridewell; he is a native of Glasgow » " d came to Rutherglen a few weeks ago to reside with a friend ; there was a watch- dog i, i the shop when broke in o, but what method was used quiet him is not yet known. The boy is still jn prison and he has net yet confessed having had any accomplices. There is now on board of the flag- ship ; t Spit, head, a seaman, who has sent home from Lisbon, suspected to have been scccssary to the late hor- rible murders at Radclife Highway. September 18. PEACE WITH AMERICA. ( FROM THE STATESMAN.) We have to announce the important and agreeable Intelligence of America having revoked the Declara- tion of War against England, as will appear by the following letter, which we received from a correspon- dent at Liverpool this morning; and, from the re- spectable channel by which it was communicated to us, wejiave no doubt of its authenticity:— Liverpool, Sept. IS. A vesiel ca'led the General Washington, is just arrived from America in two- and- twenty days, bring- ing the agreeable news of PEACE. The President called a meeting of the House of Assembly, ' when the Declaration of War was revoked by a majority ef 53 to 36. _ COURIER OFFICE, Half- past One o'Clock Wf have just received Momfeurs to the 14th.- They contain no additional bulletin. Private letters from the armv state, that the French are rapidly ap. proaching Moscow. The march of reinforcements for the French army is pressed on •!! points.— Prus- sian, Saxon, and Austrian regiments are taking the direction of the Dnieper. Extract of a letter from Copenhagen, dated Sept. 6 — The obtaining possession of Smolensk cost the French upwards of 10,000 men. Revel holds out bravely, and no besieging artillery has yet arrived. Two vessels, laden with coffee, & c. have been taken out of the last convoy in the Belt, by the gun- boats." Dispatches, brought by the Gleaner, were yes- terday received at the Admiralty from Admiral Sawyer, at Halifax, by which is learned the me- lancholy intelligence, of the loss of his Majesty's schooner Chub. It appears, that on the 23d ult. in a'gale of wind, she upset, and every soul on board unfortunately perished. At a meeting held at Plymouth ( Massachus- setts), a resolve was passed, that the war with Great Britain was unnecessary, and that they would not be concerned in fitting out privateers. Mr. Code, the Author of the forth- coming Opera at the Lyceum, is one of the most favourite and successful national Poets of Ireland. Ais " Sprig of Shilelah and Shamrock so green," will be popular as long as his native country remains tmdenatimalized. His piflures of Irish manners are equisitely drawn. It is' understood in the political circles, that ano- ther attempt at negociation between Ministers and the Wellesley party has been unsuccessfully ma'' e by Mr. Canning. This Gentleman, it is said, was himself to hold a very high situation under Government, and the Marquis was to be appointed Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, with full authority to assure the Catholics of this country, of very favourable concessions at the commencement of the ensuing Session of Parliament. It was intended that a dissolution of Parliament should S'icceed the completion of this arrangement, and the Ministers, it is said, counted upon a consider- able accession of strength in consequence of the popu- ityof incorporating the Weilesley party with them- se' es. Marshal Beresford, it is said, is so exasperated with the late conduct of the Portuguese cavalry, under that gallant officer General I)' Urban, that he has issued orders that they shall walk beside their horses, with their swords slung on the pummels, . and their jackets turned ; but when the enemy appear, they mav mount and charge, and retrieve their character and jackets. There are built.' tins issued about the health of Mar- shal Beresford every day in the Lisbon Gazette.— The last says, " Marshal B's wound is doing very well, and his health excellent; except that his legs and feet swell very much, because he cannot fie in an horizontal position." An attempt was lately made by a celebrated Chemist in Switzerland to make up that dreadful composition by which the lives of our fellow- crea- tures were taken away with so much quickness, and tosuchboundIesseitent, atthe time of the crusades. The wildfire has been spoken of with horror by the historians of that day, as possessing such. pow- ers of destruction as no art could counteract or evade, and any attempt to acquire a knowledge of ao dreadful an instrument of annihilation has been always regarded with abhorrence. The Swiss Chemist was however unsuccessful. His mate- rials, which cost an immense sum of money, were, in the midst of his preparations, blown up, and took with them his right arm as a peact offering. SERIOUS INSURRECTION AT DART- MCOR DEPOT. We are sorry to learn, by letters received from Plymouth, that within these few days past there have been symptoms of commotion among the French prisoners in the Depot at Dartmoor.— A letter from Plymouth, dated Monday, says— " An express arrived here last night, at eleven o'clock, informing General Stephens that a serious commotion had broken out among the prisoners in Dartmoor Depot, that the Cheshire Militia stationed there, were under arms, and that imme- diate assistance was necessary. Three field pieces, with 15 gunners and 15 artillery. drivers, were immediately sent off to Dartmoor, and their ap- pearance quickly restored order among the in- surgents. " It appears that the bake- house having been burnt down last week at Dartmoor, in which bread for the prisoners had usually been baked, a pound and a half of biscuit had been served out to each man, but this had been reduced, by an order from Government, to one pound, the usual allowance of bread. " This was resented by the whole body of pri- loners ( about 7000), and they shewed so deter- mined a disposition, that such measures were found necessary as were adopted. They even had it in contemplation to fire the prison and effeCt an escape. Some of them were for seizing the depot of arms at Tavistock, but the appearance of the , artillery settled every thing. « Five o'Clock, Monday— t have just seen one : of the Gloucester Militia, who came from Dart- moor a. few hours since, and all was then quiet, though it was deemed prudent to keep the artil- i erj there." AMERICA. The Gleaner is. returned from America. She reached Falmouth on Tuesday evening, and the offi cer with the dispatches arrived at the Admiralty about eleven o'clock this morning. They relate onlv, we believe, to the situation of our affairs in Nova Scotia and Canada. It will be recollected that the Gleaner did not carry out the revocation of the Orders in Council. The Gleaner left Halifax on 26th. The following are extracts from the Halifax papers :— HALIFAX, AUGUST 24. ARMISTICE.— The following is copied from The Albany Gazette of Monday last :— " On Saturday last arrived in this city, Col. Bay- nes, Adj.- Gen. of the British forces in Lower Cana- da, accompanied by Major Clarke, Aid- de- camp to Gen. Petit, commanding the American troops on the ' Canada line. Immediately on his arrival, he was in- troduced to Gen. Dearborn, at his head- quarters aj Gi eenbush, with whom, and Governor Tompkins, we are informed, he remained closeted till a late hour.— Report says, he came to communicate to the Com- mander in- Chief of the American Army official in- formation of the repeal of the Orders in Coun- cil— and that instructions had been sent out by the British Government to Mr. Foster, to open nego- ciations with our Government on all she points in difference between the two nations; but that in consequence of Mr Foster having withdrawn from the United States, the Governor- General of Canada : proposed an armistice or suspension of arms, till the answer of the American Government could be ob- tained to the overtures, which would be made to it on the part of the British Court. " What has been the result of the conferences be- tween Gen. Dfarborn and Col. Baynes, we have not been able to learn, although we are led to believe, as ; most probable, that a partial armistice, and for a short time, has been agreed upon." " Another report says, that Col. Baynes was in possession of the instructions sent to Mr. Foster, and that he came to this city with intention to proceed to the seat of Government, but that permission to that, effect could not be obtained from Gen. Dearborn.— Col. B. left town yesterday, on his return to Canada. In addition to the above we are informed, that there are letters in town from Albony, stating, that an ar- mistice was concluded at nine o'clock, on Sunday evening, to continue for thirty days." FRENoT PAPERS, Paris papers to the 12th have been received, con- taining the 15th bulletin of the French army. It is dated Slawkovo, August 27. There has been no battle, but the enemy have made great progress in their advance to Moscow. Their head quarter s were, oti 26th at Dorogobusch, and next day at Slawkovo, with the advanced grard, close to Viasma. This town is abaut 76 miles from Smolensko, and little more than 80 miles from Moscow. FIFTEENTH BULLETIN OF THE GRAND ARMY. SLAWKOVO, AUG 27.— Gen. Zayoncheick, who commanded'a Polish division at the battle of Smol- ensk, was wounded. The behaviour of the Polish corps astonished the Russians, who used to - despise them. At the battles of Smolensk and Valentina, the enemy lost 20 Generals killed, wounded, or taken, and a great number of officers. The number of men killed, taken, or| wounded, may amount from 2- 5 to 30,000 men. On the day after the battle of Val<> n- tina. His Majesty pave the 12th and 21st infantry of the line, and the 7th light infantry, a riumber of decorations of the Legion of Honour, to be bestowed on the Captains, Lieutenants, ( Subalterns, and Sol- diers. The selections were made on the field; in a circle before the Emperor, and were confirmed with acclamations by the troops. The following are the names of those who obtained this honourable dis- tinction --— [ Here follows a list of the respective individuals.] Number of decorations granted— to the 12th regi- ment 30; 21st regt. 25 ; 7th light 32— total 87. The enemy's army, in retiring, burn the bridges and destroy the roads, to . retard the march of the French army as muck as possible. On the 21st, they had re- passed the Borysthenes at Slob- Pniwa, closely followed by our advanced guard. The commercial establishments at Smolensk were quite untouched on the Borysthenes, in a fine suburb, to which the Russians set fire, for the sole purpose of retarding our march a single hour.— Never was war conducted with so much inhumanity: the Rus- sians treat their own country as they would do that of an enemy. The country is fine, and abundantly supplied wjth every thing. The roads are admirable; The Duke of Tarentum continues to destroy Duna- bourg. The wooden materials, palisades, See. which were immense, served to make feux- de- joie in honour of the 15th of August. Prince Schwartzenberg writes from Ossiati, on 17th, that his advanced guard has pursued the enemy on the road to Divin—> that he has taken some hundreds of prisoners— and obliged the enemy to burn his baggage. Gen. Bianchi, how-, ever, who commands the advanced guard, has suc- ceeded in seizing 800 baggage- waggons, which the enemy could neither carry off, nor destroy. The Russian army, under Tormassow, has lost almost all its baggage. The equipage for the siege of Riga has begun to move from Tilsit for the Dwina. Gen. St. Cyr has taken a position on the Drissa. The rout of the enemy at the battle of Polotsk on the 18th was complete. The brave Bavarian Gen. Deroy was wounded at the age of 72, after nearly 60 years service. His Majesty has nominated him a Count of the Empire, with a revenue of 30,000 francs. The Bavarian corps behaved with much bravery. His Majesty has granted it rewards and | honours. The enemy gave out that he would make a stand at i Dorpghobouj. He had, according to tire custom, j thrown up ear th and constr ucted batteries. The army i having shewn itself in order of battle, the Emperor j repaired thither; but the enemy's General thought better of it, beat a retreat, and abandoned Dorough- obouj, a city containing 10,000 souls, ,< nd eight stee- ples. Head- quarters wer e there on 26th, and on the 27th at Slawkovo. The advanced guard is close to Viasma. The Viceroy manoeuvres on the left, at two leagues from the great road ; the Prince of Eckmuhl on the great road ; and Prince Poniatowski on the left bank of the Osma. The capture of Smolensk appears to have had a sad effect on the spirits of the Russians. It was called Smolensk the- sacred; Smolensk the- strong ; the key qf Moscow ; besides a thousand other common sayings. Whoever has Smolensk, has Moscow, say the peasants. The heat is excessive. • it has not rained for a month. The Duke of Belluno, with the 9th corps, 30,000 men strong, has set out from Tilsit tor Wttrta.—- Tim corps is to for m the reserve. : pi .

Bv noNAGHAB",....... J..;. « ... 0 Bv DUBLIN 0 BELFAST, Wednesday, September 23, 1812. At an early hour last night we received, by ex- press, from Donaghadee, the London Journals of Saturday the 19th kit, from which we have selected whatever appeared most prominently interesting-, The arrival of these Papers enables us to correCt an erroneous report, previously circuiated in Lon- don, which confidently stated, that Peace with America was re- established, the Declaration of War having been revoked by a vote of the House of Assembly. The rumour seems to have been fabricated in Liverpool, for the purpese of mer- cantile speculation. BY EXPRESS. London, Saturday, September 19. It was announced last night, in seco. nd editions of some of the Evening Papers, that a vessel, called the George Washington, had arrived at Li- verpool, on Wednesday, with intelligene of the cessation of hostilities on the part of the American Government, in consequence of the arrival of the news of the absolute revocation of the Orders in Council from England. But letters received from Liverpool this morning, of the date of Thursday, make no mention of the matter, and therefore the whole is supposed to be a fabrication. Indeed, there was inherent reason to suspeCl it to- be so from the outset; for, not content with announcing the orders of the President for the cessation of hos. tilities, which, we believe, the President is not authorized to do, the statement in the Evening Papers alluded to, added that the Congress was assembled and had resolved on peace ; the num- bers, on a division, being 54 to 36, which g've a majority of eighteen in faVour of the pacific alternative. Npw, we believe, that Congress cannot by law be called together at a less notice than forty days; and there is a practical difficulty which renders such a notice absolutely necessary, arising from the space that many of the Mem- bers have to travel over, which is frequently not less than three thousand miles. Fabricators know that no lie tells so well as " the lie circumstan- tial ;" but experience should teach them also, that it is the species of lie most easily detected, when it comes to be probed by men who are able to judge with accuracy of the correctness of the cir. Cumstances connected with it. The Gleaner, as we stated yesterday,- has not bsought either letters or papers from the United States to individuals or to the Post- office. It is said that his Majesty's Ministers have received a Washington Paper of the 8th of August; but we suppose its contents are unimportant, or they would have been made public. We understand, that in consequence of the length of time that the American squadron had been at sea without being heard of, it was the general opinion in the ports of the United States, and particulajly at New- York, that it had gone to France! This opinion we know to be groundless.—( Pilot). DISSOLUTION OF PARLIAMENT. A dissolution ef Parliament is now finally re- solved on. It will take place about the third week in October, when the harvest will have been completely got in, and the bustle of the Quarter Sessions will be over. - A most aflive canvassing } ias already commenced.. ••••-.•• The Electors of the Empire cannot now be" stif- Gciently on their guard against the insidious'ap. proaches of those ignorant and illiterate, but purse- proud men, who have degraded the character of Senators by prostituting their votes to the highest bidders, and have been so often, in the words of the enlightened Speaker of the House, " bought and sold like cattle in a market." The ensuing Election will, we, trust, present a new » ra— let none but men of approved talent, but above all, of approved and well- tried integrity be received as Candidates— let not wealth or extensive pos- sessions be passports to a Seat in Parliament. A profound and enlightened Statesman once emphatically said, that the wealthy and powerful in this country had nothing to do to gain esteem, but to refrain from mischief. We must deprecate their interference, therefore, with the rights of the enlightened and middling classes of society : and let the electors of Great Britain on their parts* manful!) resist every undue attempt to influence their votes, from whatever quarter that attempt may come— let them appeal to their own expe- rience and judgments alone— men of virtue and talent will then have a chance of becoming our Representatives. This of itself will be a, glorious Parliamentary Reform, commencing at the root of the corruption and abuses, which have so long preyed upon the vitals of the Constitution, and palsied the ener- | j gies of eor National Councils 1 i French Papers d-> wsto. the 14 h inst. havo be% o j received. - They do not contain any'intelligence from the seat of the'war'in Russia, beyond th tf contained in the Fifteenth Bulletin.' NehheKdo they bring any other inteliigei ce . of the least im- portance. '.'*•' GOTTENBUKGH MAIL. A Gotteoburgh Mail has. arrived this morning, with some important intelligence from, the Seat of- War in the North. The o ccn p a fc o no P S moilelisk by the French was known at Gottenburgh, but their friends in Denmark admit, that i^ fcost them 10,000 men— of this" we IraYiTnk* the'smallest doubt. The Battle of Polotsk, in which a " com- plete viClory is claimed, for the corps of Oudinot ( or rather of St. Cyr), existed, as we . have more than once stated, decidedly in favour of the Rus-, siaiis. As a proof of this, neither St Cyr nor M'Donald ( the DuTie oFTarento) have been able to advance a single step since its occurrence, and Riga has been effectually relieved. From a Proclamation or Address of the Me- tropolitan Bishop of Moscow, and the answer of Alexander, it appears, that the utmost unanimity prevails at that capital, and that the inhabitants are determined to a man to die with arms ia; their hands in defence of their country. At Moscow, therefore, we suppose a dreadful conflict w ilf take place.— With an armed population, animated by zeal and loyahy, if the Government possesses but ordinary vigour and resolution, Moscow will be the grave of the invading army.' We are glad to find that aCtive preparations are still making to forward the Swedish expedi- tion : an increased activity in its various equip- ments has been visible since the return of the Crown Prince from the interview with Lord Cath. cart and the Emperor Alexander. The following are extracts from the Swedish Papers, on this and other topics: " GQTTENBURGH, SEPT- 9. " The ships engaged- for the expedition have been inspeaed, and ordered'tQ- hold themselves in readiness for immediate service ; such- a* had bean dismantled are refitted. " It is reported that the French have suffered a defeat near Smolensk, and a great part of their army put in complete rout. " The result of the Conference at Abo has not transpired,'' but it is said Finland will be restored to Sweden." 1 " v '' FROM THE ST. PRTFRSBTTROH PAPER OF AU- ' . s. GUST 6 ( 18), 1812.

CAPTURE OF THE ROYAL BOUNTY OF LEITHV Extract of a Letter from St. John's, dated Augu « r 1 A. On Monday evening last arrived here Captain ' Henry Gamble, with part of his crew :< nd pas- sengers, belonging to the ship Royal Bot'inty rf Leith. This vessel on her voy4ge from1 Hull tu' Prince Edward's Island, in bailast, wa. / tracked on the 1st inst. four or five leagues to the souths ward of St. Perei's, by ; he Yankee bngantrne pri., vateer, of 18 guns and 121/ men. Captain Gamble, being unapprised of the war, was in some degree unprepared for the attack of the American, who chased her under English co. ' lours, but, on coming near, hoisted ihe American flag, and commenced the engagement The Royal Bounty had 10 guns, 18 men, and four passengers, one a female. Captain Gamble sustained the unequal conflict for an hour and a quarter, when, having the boy that was at the ' helm killed, himself wounded, together with his second mate, boatswain, and cook, the colours were struck. Several shots were fired afterwards, • one of which wounded the chief mate. The Americans then took possession, an J ordered all people on board the privateer, where the wounded received " surgiqa! assistance, but the others were treated very harshly, having their clothes, some of which they were,' taken from them. Two Americans were badly wounded, and ir is supposed smne were killed, but this was not ac- knowledged. The American master was quite enraged at . the resistance he had met with from Captain Gamble, whose conduct on this occasion, as well as of his gallant associates, deserves the approbation of every brave man. The privateer shortly after boarded the T'leti*, of PooJe, Captain. Pack, from Sidney, with coals, which was < et fire to, as weil as the Royal Sownty. The crew of the former escaped. At 11 at nighr," Captain Gamble, wjth his crew, were set adrift in the boat. They reached the land of Piacenti* Bay the next morning— after receiving , he most hospitable treatment at Lamallin, they were con- veyed from thence to Biirto, whfre they also ex- perienced every attention from Mr. Butler, and' Mr. Harrison, who provided them with a e,:<- veyance to St. John's. The privateer, we are led to believe, has done a good deal of mischief on the south- west coast, but we hope Captain Cookejley, bf the Hazard, who must have been near that part of the coast, will put a stop to his careeri Extract of a letter from a yotmg man who , sailed from Belfast for New- York, in the Magnet, Captain DREW, in June last— The letter is dated " Halifax, July 30, 1812. " We sailed 20th June— had a favourable pas- sage until 18th July— that day was taken without battle by the Ringdove, British sloop of war, and learned, for the first time, that the British and Americans were at war; eight men and an officer took command of the vessel, and sent the sailors and male passengers to the Ringdove : the Ma I I \ i 6 senc net, and remaining passengers, were then into Halifax, from which they were about thirty hours sailing. Some of the male passengers - were then put into other prizes to assist at vvoiking them, so the crew, & c. got into Halifax in six different vessels, the last of which arrived safe on the 23d July ; and, on the 25th, the passengers got their goods and liberty."— The writer is much pleased with the place, and thinks either the town, or surrounding country, may prove favourable for an. adventurer. We have seen a letter from an Officer on board ' the Nymph frigate, just arrived at Halifax from England, dared 19 h ulf. Every thing there w. re a warlike aspeft ; the port crowded with Ameri- can prizes.— The American frigate Constitution, had escaped from our squadron, in cbace, bv throwing all her guns overboard.

A few greens in a field ought not to delay its being cut, under pretence of its not being dead ripe, more especially towards the approach of the equinox, f> r it is amazing how much grain is lost in reaping a field, when broke down and intertwisted by over- ripe- ness, and the loss by shaking winds and heavy rains is incalculable. The whole strength that can be got ought to be applied to cut down, as soon as it can be done with propriety, whatever the expence may be, as this, for the reasons before. mentioned, will, upon the whwle, be a saving. } An absurd practice prevails in some northern conn- ' ties of not putting head- fheaves on the stook, after the grain is cut down, which is a great preserva- tion against its bring injured by bad weather. t P f A Correspondent of the News- Letter of yester day has thought fit to call in question the obser- vations made in the CHRONICLE a few days ago, respecting the intended fight between two persons named Moore and Lennm / . but notwithstanding the labours of this sapient Correspondent, we would mistrust the evidence of our senses, did we not declare, that from every thing we could see and hear, each of the individuals seemed to be adopted by the ignorant vulgar as the cham- pion of a party; and had the battle not teen timely prevented God knows where the mischief would have terminated We really do not be- lieve, however, that this was at all in the contem- plation of the chief actors in the scene ; but it should teach them, when they have disputes to settle, " agreeable to the present fashionable pugilistie mode," as the News- Letter Correspondent calls it, that they will choose such a time and place for their purpose, as will prevent tbe possibility of its encroaching on the public peace, and of being S>) peculiarly calculated " to excite and foment party spirit." The Treasurer of the Belfast Charitable Society has received from the Executors of thg late J > hn Ewing, Esq. the sum of One Hundred and Fifty Pounds sterling, bequeathed by him lo that In- ititution. — -- . ... . * *• SPIRIT LICENCES.

SIR— As my own fiorin crops, and those of my friends who have cultivated this grass with suc- cess, must remain on the ground uncut until Oc- tober 1st ; and as the operation of mousing will probably be catried on through the whole month, and tha; of hay mating some weeks longer, I am desirous that agriculturists should know where they may obtain satisfaction on this important sub- ject ; where the incredulous may satisfy his doubts as to the immense produce so often stated to be mowed from this overlooked grass; and where he may satisfy himself as to the facility of saving these enormous crops in a season hitherto deemed Utterly unfit for such purposes. To commence with England— Lord Rous was rny first correspondent from another kingdom ; his Lordship has been cultivating fiorin three or four years, and, as he informed me, with much success. The Marchioness of Salisbury, too, is a zeal- ous amateuse. Her ladyship's expectations of a good crop this season at Harfield are very san- guine. , Mr. Johnes, Member for Cardiganshire, is one ef my youngest correspondents; but though late in the field, he has made all amends by docility, vepl, and activity; relying upon which, I venture to hold out the Haford crops for inspection, pro- bably the most extensive of any yet cultivated jn Britain, except Mr. Miller's. Whetl - the English growers of fioiin will so conquer old prejudices as to encounter the for- midable season I recommend, especially as they see so much hay spoiled by the nightly rains of this year, I cannot say ; but I have full confidence in the obedierce of my Scottish pupils, upon whom I expressed, in person, the necessity of late mow- ing ; among these 1 venture to point out for in- spetfion the crops cf my venerable friend Mr. Mil- ler of Dalswinton ; of Mr. Young of Harbourn ; ar. d of Mr. Houston, of Johnston, near Paisley : all these crops I have examined: My friend, Sir James Stewart's fiorin I laid down myself early in May, and yet I expeCt a good crop this same year; and Mr. Baird, of Shott's Iron Works, writes to me thpy are as cer- tain of a magnificent crop from the ground I my- self laid down for him on the 13th of May; and that he is determined not to mow until J t iary. I found Mr. Baird paying 6d. for 22ibs. of Hay.; I believe he is satisfied that I shall proteCl him from such prices in future *. To the Scotch crops I rely upon, I may add, ( provided it be protected) the piece laid down by Sir John Sinclair, near Queen- street, Edinburgh ; I had been told this experiment failed, but I was highly gratified to find its luxuriance, in May last, equal to that of my own best meadow. I shall refer amateurs to very few Irish crops, and only to such as are well worth inspection: I commence with the Marquis of Hertford's se- ven- acre meadow on '. he mountain- bead side lead, ing to Glenavy from Belfast ; the soil peat and moor; the surface was heathy ; the elevation 900 feet above the level of the sea ; yet I answer for it, the crop will be found far to exceed any in Bri- tain ( not fiorin) though the preparation of the ground for it commenced only on the 16th of Au- gust, 1811 ; a rapid change from the wild face of nature to a luxuriant crop of great value, and cer- tain permanence j-. The nejt crop I refer to is near Coleraine, laid down in November, 1809, by my friend Mr. K'Naghten, Knight of the shire of Antrim: Its crop in 1810 was valuable; in 1811, it amounted to ( and the who'e would have averaged) near seven tons of dry hay to the English acre : the Duke of Buccleuch viewed it with much astonish- ment early in August; and I heard Mr. M'Nagh- ten, at his table, assure his Grace, that he would not take thirty guineas an acre for the crop : I am • Since the above was written, I have received a letter from my friend Col. Robertson, of Hal) Craig, Lanarkshire : I trust he will forgive me for quoting- a passage from it. " It gives me great pleasure to be able to mention the luxuriance and flattering appearance of the fiorin crop which you super- intended, and direCted the planting of, at Sir James Stewart's bog ; indeed I never saw any thing looking so promising and Well, and am fully persuaded it will, by the end of the year, afford him a most ample and great return tor the labour and expense bestowed upon it. I lately saw Mr. Baird'a crop of fiorin, at Shott's Iron Works, which I think, looks as well, if j » > t better, than Sir James's: and the Earl of Hyndford has also some which he planted last year, doing extremely well." f The Marquis of Hertrord is also an extensive and suc- cessful cultivator ia England. confident it will reach ten tons of hay, perfectly dry and fit for storage, to the Ewlish acre. I have twenty acres mvself at Clonfecle, mar; y of which I have no doubt will also reach ten tons. I have my florin in a great diversity _ f ground, and vary the circumstances attending it occarion- al'y. I have also some failures, whence more in- struftion m* y be derived from inspection. I have likewise three or four acres at Portrush, not so fine, vet very valuable ; and I can shew, both at Clon- fecle and Portrush luxuriant fiorin crops, never laid down, or the surface broken up ; the sponta- neous fiorin, merely encouraged by light manure, and protected from the scythe until OCtaber or rather November. Be it remembered, that fiorin h iy is at the same time far superior in quality to any other— prefer- red by all cattle, improving the quality and in- creasing the quantity of milk given by cows fed upon it, and ascertained to possess far greater fattening powers than any other hay. The statements so often made of the extraordi- nary value of this indigenous grass should rouse the attention of agriculturists, they are all deeply in- terested in the question, and are now shown with what facility they can ascertain the truth of my positions, which, if true, prove that their cattle of every description may be fed through the winter at one- third of the expence they have hitherto cost the proprietors. In a national point of view, the establishment of the value of fiorin grass is of infinitely more im- portance : it is not a great many years since we were a grain exporting eountry; but now, for several successive years, we have regplarly imported grain to an immense and alarming extent; and even so, we with difficulty escape the horrors of famine ; and all this with an increase of population steadily progressive. I shall probably be laughed at for saying this gloomy prospeCt would instantly brighten up, could the conViftion of the value of fiorin be generally established ; could the opinion- ated landholders of England be persuaded to open their eyes, and to inspea the crops of those who have cultivated this grass with success, and who are now ready to exhibit their crops in the greatest luxuriance. Never was position more easily and simply demonstrated, than " that a general intro- duction of fiorin culture would instantly put a stop to the importation of grain, and effectually secure us from future scarcities." England and Wales contain six million acres of meadow, always goqd land : my friend Mr. Cur- wen, some years ago, made one ton and a half the average amount of our hay- crops ; and I have respectable authority for saying that two tons of hay is a fine crop. Now, in admitting the aver- age value of fiorin crops to be six tons, I know I make a very great concession ; two million acres therefore, of fiorin meadow, would give the same quantity of hay that the present six millions do, and of far superior quality: of course, we have four million acres of ground thrown back upon our hands, which, of necessity, must be consigned to the plough ; and whoever shall take the trou- ble to calculate, will find that half the produce ot four million acres, in the regular course of cultiva- tion, will do far more than cover the heaviest im- portation ever made in any one year, or the defi- ciency of our crops in the worst year. Nor is it through our present meadows alone the introduc- tion of fiorin culture will serve to augment our growth of corn ; the heaths, the moors, and the • wastes of England, are most of them well adapted to the growth of fiorin: the cultivation of much of these will so increase the quantity of hay, that far more cattle will be kept than formerly ; our agricultural field will be extended by the facility of maintaining horses ; and our crops will be im- proved by the increase of animal manure. Mountain is the grand field for fiorin improve- ment ; much of the early part of this summer has been employed in proving to my Scotch and Wick- lo< w friends, that every mountain- farm may afford a fiorin meadow sufficient to maintain in winter the cattle it can graze in summer, and in making selec- tions of the proper scites; my communications are beginning to produce some effeCt on the Welsh mountains; and the late transactions of the IVorl- ir. gton Agricultural Society show with what facility meadows, sufficient for every purpose, could be formed on the fells of Cumberland and Westmore. land ; the plough will ascend farther as the ma. nure becomes more abundant. I shall conclude by requesting the agricultural world to abstain from speculation a priori; not to discuss probabilities, but to look to the facts, which, if they please, they may have before their eyes ; and, instead of listening to vain cavillers, to attend to the lessons of those who have already succeeded. I am Sir, & c. W. KICHARDSON, D. D. ON THE MODES OF MAKING HAY. In order to elucidate this, it is necessary to inquire, in whit do the true fattening oroperties of hay consist ? These, to me, appear to consist in the 0 « tnre and quantity of the esculent juices contain- ed in the grass, from which hay is made. These juices must be of a superior or inferior quality, according- to the richness or poverty of the land from which they are produced ; and the goodness of the hay is certainly in proportion to the quan- tity of these juices retained in drying it, whether in the field or in the stack. Certain it is, that a considerable quantity of succulent matter must be lost by evaporation, in drving hay in the field, to a degree suffieier." to prevent its fermenting in the rick ; hut it is impossible to preserve it for winter food without losing part of its juicy substance; and it is difficult to sav, whether these juices, when confined, by the hay being stacked in a rawer state, are not, in their fermenting operations, more injurious than advantageous in its fattening qualities. The acid contained in these, by being excluded from the air, seems to operate as the cause of fermentation and consequent heat ; and I cannot conceive how, from this process, any ad- vantage can result to the quality of the hay; as the succulent matter, even in this case, must find its way through the collective body ; and, like that which is dried in the field, be also lost in evapora- tion. Indeed, it seems evident, that a greater pro- portion of the esculent juices, and of the essential propertie s of bay, is lost by fermentation in the stack, than by drying in the field, under judicious management. From whence proceeds that steam or vapour which generally arises from hay- ricks in a heated state ? Does not the greater part of this consist in fermented juices making their escape, in consequence of the internal process going on in the accumulated body ? Fermentation, by subtiliz- ing- and rendering volatile the component part of the hay, and by keeping these in motion, renders the essential qualities more liable to fly off by solar or atmospheric attraction, than when dried in the field, where the sun and the air, while they attraCl some of its juices, have the effeCl of binding and condensing the remaining substances of which the hay is composed. The heating process, therefore, must be attended with a considerable degree of waste or consumption ; and the greater the fer- mentation is, the greater will be the loss of essen- tial properties. Hence we perceive what a reduc- tion of bulk takes place in a stack which has been for some time under its operations; and instances have occurred, in which a total consumption has taken place, in consequence of hay, by over- heat- ing, being actually brought into a state of ignition. Hay that is stained, and has lost its relish, by being1 exposed to much wet in the field, may, I believe, be tendered more palatable to cattle, by means of fermentation; but I cannot perceive any reason- to believe, that this process will ever restore those nourishing properties which were lost by the effeCls of the weather previous to its being put together in the stack. ( Prom a Correspondent.) In many places of the United Kingdom, the practice of carrying hay, in such a state as to heat in the stalk, is scarcely known. But in the most southern counties of England, the farmers are of opinion, that if hay does not undergo this process after being stacked, it will be of very indifferent quality ; so prevalent has the notion now become, in sc me counties, that it is believed, that hay, with- out being heated, is not better than barley straw. There are two inquiries respecting the matter, a proper explanation of which involves the greater part of the subjeft. First— Does the heating of hay in the stack render its flavour more or less agreeable to the animal's taste ? and, secondly, Does this process ameliorate or cetraCt from its nourishing or feeding qualities ? With respeCt to the lormer of these questions, it is certain, tljat if food is not relished, it cannot be received into the stomach in quantities sufficient to nourish the ani- mal body ; and it must be allowed, that cattle, in general, are fond of hay that has undergone what is termed a kind heat in the tick. It can- not be deified, however, that hay whieii has been got well, and without being heated, comes out of the stack in winter, sweet and green, is by them devoured with equal, tf not greater avidity. But however this may be, the most palatable food is not always the most nutticious; and the growth of the animal body depends more upon the quali- ty than the taste of the food. The second inquiry therefore is— does the heating of hay in tbe stack ameliorate or detract from its feeding qualities " Husband ( make the conclusion)— In Ger- i many they are master ; in England, servants ; in France, companions; in Italy, school boys ; and in Spain, tyrants." The foregoing is as firmly believed in Paris as the Alcoran is at Constantinople.— So much for the flippancy of French taste and French preju- dices. MIDDLESEX SESSIONS, SEPT. 15. MANNERS OF EUROPEAN NATIONS. A French publication, in all the affectation of quintescent perspicuity, has announced the follow ing characteristics of several countries of Modern Europe :— " In religion—, The German is unbelieving ; the Englishman devout; the Frenchman zealous ; the Italian ceremonious ; the Spaniard a bigot. " In keeping his word— The German is faithful ; the Englishman safe ; the Frenchman giddy ; the Italian cunning ; the Spaniard a cheat. " In giving advice— The German is slow ; the Englishman resolute ; the Frenchman precipitate; the Italian nice ; the Spaniard circumspect. " In love— The German does not understand it; the Englishman loves a little here and there ; the Frenchman every where ; the Italian knows how one ought to love ; the Spaniard loves truly. " In external appearance— The German is tall ; the Englishman well made ; the Frenchman well looking ; the Italian demure ; the Spaniard fright- ful. " In manners— The German is clownish ; the Englishman barbarous; the Frenchman easy ; the Italian polite ; the Spaniard proud. " In keeping a secret— The German forgets what he has heard ; the Englishman conceals what he should divulge, and divulges what he should con- coal ; the Frenchman blabs every thing ; the Italian blabs nothing ; the Spaniard is mysterious. " In vanity— The German boasts little ; the Englishman despises all; the Frer~ hman praises every thing ; the Italian nothing ; the Spaniard is indifferent to all. " In eating and drinking— The German is a drunkard ; the Englishman a lover of sweets ; the Frenchman delicate ; the Italian moderate ; the • Spaniard niggardly. " In offending and doing good— The German does neither good nor bad ; the Englishman does both without reason ; the Italian is prompt in benefi- cence, but vindictive ; the Spaniard indifferent in both respects. " In speaking— The German speaks little and badly, hut writes well; the Frenchman speaks and writes well; the Englishman speaks badly, but writes well; the Italian speaks well, writes much and well; the Spaniard speaks little, writes little, but well. " In laws— The German laws are indifferent ; the Englishman has bad laws, but observes them well; the Frenchman has good laws, but observes them badly ; the Italians and Spaniards have good laws— the former observes them negligent- ly, the latter rigidly. " Diseases— The Germans are particularly in- fested with flens ; the Englishman with whitlows ; the French with small pox ; the Italians with the plague ; and the Spaniards with wens. " The women— Are housewives in Germany, queens in England, ladies in France, captives in Italy, slaves in Spain. " In courage— The German resembles a bear, the Englishman a lion, the Frenchman an eagle, the Itauan a fox, and the Spaniard an elephant. « In the Sciences— The German is a Pedant, the Englishman a philosopher ; the Frenchman has a smattering of every thitig ; the Italian is a pro- fessor ; the Spaniard a profound thinker. « Munificence— In Germany, the princes ; in England, the ships; in France, the court; in Italy, the churches; in Spain the armories are magni- ficent. Elizabeth Howard and T. Lovegrove were put to the bar, charged with assaulting E. Moote, . an Officer of the Palace Court, in the execution of his du'y, and J. Moore, his son, who was as- sisting him. Mr. Barry stated the case for the prosecution, as follows:— The defendants were the wife and friend of Mr. Howard, a person residing at Finch- ley, against whom a process for debt had issued from the Palace Court, which had been put into the hands of the prosecutor, E. Moore, to execute; and, after several ineffectual attempts to do so, he went to the defendant's house, accompanied by his son and an assistant, named Higginsi on the morning of the 11th of June last They arrived at the house about two o'clock in the morning ; the family were at that time in bed, but on the premises they found Cook and Matthews, two of the Hatton- garden Officers, who were arrived there before them, drawn thither by information that an illegal still was worked upon the premises. They continued hovering about the premises till rear six o'clock in the morning, at which time ' they tried to get admission into the house, but found it too well secured, both against civil and criminal process, for them to effect their purpose. About half- past six, however, one of the windows of the house was thrown up, and Lovegrove, one of the defendants came to it, and entered into conversation with the prosecutor ; and, from his observations, it appeared they were known for bailiffs, and that there was a determination on the part of Howard and his family to resist their en- trance into the house. Whilst this conversation was going on, Howard was perceived standing behind Lovegrove near the window, and the pro- secutor, Moore, immediately jumped up, and tap- ping him on the shoulder, exclaimed, " you are my prisoner." The sash, however, was imme- diately pulled down upon his neck ; and whilst in that situation, his head within the window and his body withoutside, they heat him about in a violent manner. J. Moore, however, and Hig- gins taking him by the heels, at length extricated him from his perilous situation ; when the sash was again thrown up, and Lovegrove jumped out, and together with Mrs. Howard attacked the officers with a pitchfork and pickaxe, swear- ing they would split their skulls, and a desperate conflict ensued ; in the end, however, the officers proved victorious, and forced their way into the house, though not till they had been severely beaten. These circumstances were proved by evidence. Mr. Alley, for the defendants, contended, that this was a case of as gross conspiracy as ever had come before the Court— a conspiracy between the the prosecutor and the police officers; who. though they pretended to come for the purpose of search- ing for an illegal still, had in fact no information of any such existing, and had merely come there for the purpose of assisting the civil power in en- tering the house to arrest Howard. That plainly appeared ; for after they had gained access to the house by violence, wholly unjus'ifiable, they had neglected to institute any search whatever for the pretended still. The Learned Counsel then pro- ceeded to call evidence to prove that an unneces. sary degtee of violence had been used towards Mr. Howard ; that a pistol had been snapped at him by young Moore, who had regretted that it had not gone off, declaring, that he would have him, dead or alive. That the officers had forced their way into the house in an illegal way, by breaking open the window before they had made any capture, and that after they obtained entrance into the house, they had assaulted and beaten the defendant, Elizabeth Howard, and had com- menced the first assault upon Lovegrove. The Jury, after a short consideration, found a verdict of Guilty ; and the Court consigned them for three months to safe custody in the House of Correction. given them of the trial. The Court ( of which Admiral Foley sat as President,) upon i rrcital of the circumstances, not only acquitted Capt. B. of any blame whatever, but adjudged his conduct to have been strictly correct, and that he could not have aCted otherwise. A Court- Martial was held a few days since on board the Cressy, in the Baltic, on Mr. White- house, Purser of his Majesty's ship Woodlark, for striking his superior officer, which was proved, and he was sentenced to be hung. On Monday a Court- Martial was held on board the Gladiator, in Portsmouth harbour, for the trial of Mr. William Hulse, late Cletk of his Majesty's schooner Pickle— 1st, For embezzling and causing to be sold, from time to time, between the months of January, 1810, and March, 1811, divers slops, part of the slop stores of the Pickle ; and 2d, For making, and procuring to be made in the slop- books of the said schooner, divers false entries of the issues of slops on board the said schooner, thereby charging to part of the crew various ar- ticles of slops, which in faCt had never beeh supplied to them. He was adjudged to be mulcted, or to forfeit all the pay or wages due to him for his sei- vices , « ! one in the Royal Navy, to be rendered un- worthy of serving his Majesty, his heirs, or suc- cessors, in any place of confidence or trust, and to be imprisoned in the - Marshahca prison for the space of 12 calendar months: and the Court fui- tlier agieed, that great irregularities appeared in the issuing and entry of slops in the slop books i f the schooner Pickle, between the mouths of Ja nuary, 1810, and March, 1811. About one o'clock on Friday morning, a fire w. s discovered in the work shop of Mr John Doglit- rty, cabinet- maker, Colerain, by the centin- 1 on i< ward at the Market- house; the alarm was immediately g'tv-, en— a number of tlie inhabitants of the town repaired to the place, and with the most praiseworthy zeal exerted themselves in getting the fire'under, which was done with considerable difficulty and personal danger.— Had the fire not been discovered for a lew minutes longer, Mr and Mrs Doplierty and family, wich their dwelling- house and the buildings adjoining, must have been destroyed, as the flames had commu- nicated with the dwelling- house, and there was a large quantity of gunpowder in a house next to that where the flames raged with the greatest violence.— M-. Dogberry, who is a respectable inhabitant of that town, has suffered much loss; his work shop, which contained valuable property, and all his working tools, being entirely contumed— The premises were not in- sured.— A detachment of the Lanark militia, who are stationed there, behaved with great alacrity on the occasion, and contributed much in getting the devour- ing element under. Some misunderstandings having taken placa with respeCt to the rank of Paymasters and Sur- geons, it is regulated that these Officers are to be considered according to their standiog in their re- spective regiments, as under- mentioned : — Paymasters and Surgeons, as Captains, Assistant- Surgeons, as Subalterns. Veterinary Surgeons, as Corn.' ts. But this indulgence relates only to choice of quar- ters, and gives neither Paymasters nor Medical Officers, any claim whatever ; o military rank or command. NAVAL COURTS MARTIAL. On Monday a Court- martial was held on board the Gladiator, to inquire into the conduct of Capt. Charles Coote, of his Majesty's ship Ranger, his Officers, and ships company, for the capture of that sloop by a squadron of the enemy, on the 19th of July, 1805. The Court agreed, that the conduct of Capt. Charles Coote, and that of his Officers and ship's company, in their efforts to save his Majesty's late sloop Ranger, from cap- ture by the enemy's squadron, was highly meri- torious ! and did adjudge him to be most fully acquitted. Rear- Admiral Hargood, President. A Court- martial was held in the Downs on the 31st uit. on the Hon. Henry Blackwood, Com- mander of his Majesty's ship IVarspite, upon a charge of having caused the death of a master of a merchant sehooner, in the Mediterranean, by ordering several guns to be fired into her. The merchant vessel, it appeared, was going up the Mediterranean, w en Captain Blaekwood was com- ing down with a convoy, and the usual means were taken to bring her to ; but the master of the schooner, disregardful of Captain B's evident in- tentions, persisted on his course, and made more sail. As Capt. B. had to proteCt his convoy against several privateer schooners, which he knew were near, he considered it imperious on him to as- certain that this was not one of these vessels, which might intend in the evening, to come down upon the rear of his convoy. He, consequently cast off a transport he had in tow, went is* chase of the sehooner, and, with several of the convoy which were armed, fired at her, when, unfortunately, tbe master was killed. The vessel was then brought to the wind. The mate of the schooner imme- diately made such a representation of the circum- stance to the Admirahy, that Capt. B's conduct was ordered to be investigated by a Court- Mar- tial, and on the day mentioned it came on; but neither the mate, or any other person belonging to the schooner appeared to substantiate the alledged charge of murder, though proper notice had been Number of Churches and Chapels of the Es- tablishment, in every parish containing 1000 ini habitants and upwards ; also of the number of Places of Worship NOT of the Establishment;— taken from the returns of the Archbishops and Bishops:— Dioceses.
