THF- PATENTEES have given the above name to a Sal: of British maoufa& ure, ( to distinguish it from Stoved, Common, British Bay, Patent, or Fishery,) which will be found upon trial, to be equal, if not superior to the Vest Foreign Salt, possessing in a pre- eminent degree its es- sential property, of durability and firmness of graiu in pickle, and between layers of Provision, or Fish, and containing more REAL SALT in a given weight. The Manufacture of " SOLID SALT" being fusion by heat only, without the intervention of either Brine or Water, renders it not ouly free from any adhering moisture, hut also from the quantity of water forming a constituent part of every other variety of Salt, British or Foreign, amounting together frequently to 10 per Cent. The SOLID SALT is recommended therefore in the fullest confidence of its giving the utmost satisfaction in every department of the Provision Trade, and owing to us peculiar characteristic solidity, particularly for packing, not only meat of all kinds, but Fish also The PATENTEES have also to observe that by their pro- cess they can manufacture the SOLID SALT of any desired size of grain ; small for th" first operation of striking or salt- ing, or large grained for packing. The SOLID SALT has been made use of by many of the most eminent praClical men in the Provision Trade, as well as those in the Fisherv; in all cases giving the greatest ss tirfaiftion. It has al< o, by order of the Honourable the Com- missioners of the ViClu illing Board, been suhje& ed to ex- periment at Deptford, where a most decided preference has been given to it. With the most perfeCt conviction of its superiority and value, the Patentees leel assured that it only requires to be known, to be universally made use of. Messrs J. and T. MARSHALL, & CO. of Northwich, the only manufac- turers of the SOLID $ ALT, have appointed Messrs, WHITEHOUSF & GAL AN, of Liverpool, Agents for the tale of it, to whom any orders and communications are re- quested to be addressed. The price is Forty Shilings per ton, of Forty Bushels. A Specimen of the Salt m- y be seen, on application to Messrs. WM SEED and ROBt. BAILIE, of Belfast, and Messrs. JOHN and HENRY QUIN, Newry ; which th Patentees earnestly solicit the Houses in the Provision Trade to inspeCt, being confident, it will be found to pos6Cb » everv equisite to insure the general use of rt.

M'LORNAN, Belfw. The packet which has arrived from Jamaica, and left that Island on the 5u1 of September, brings a most melancholy account, which we hope is unfounded. The master states to his owners, that just before he left Jamaica, a ship had arrived from St. Domingo, the crew of which asserted, that by a joint scheme of the partizam of Petion and Christophe, all the whites and mu- lattoes had been massacred. Petioun it himself a mulatto; and we do not believe that these in* veterate foes to each other would a^ ree to any such project. The tide of Monday night the 19ch inst. was higher than any experienced at our quays for the last eighteen years. It reached a considerable way Up William- street, and large logs of wood were floating over our quays. Many of the stores in the lower part of the city were inundat- ed ; but, we are happy to add, thai, the damagu sustained was hot very considerable Derry Journal.

Wednesday week was committed to F^ ter gaol, Thomas Liscombe, labourer, charged with the wilful murder of Margaret Huxtable,' at D id. brooke, a child about nine years of in Jam. ary last ( for the discovery of the penr.' tntor, the Prince Regent offered a reward of 2') f> guineas); also charged with the wilful murder of Sir:.!* Ford, ahotit sixtV years'of of the pvisfr nf North Huish, on the preceding vSaturdiy.--. We have already related the circumsttnces whi. li . led to his apprehension. When brought f( j the D n . mouth Inn, Plymouth, he voluntarily conf » s;.'{ the murder of Sarah For 5, which he effected x, r first beating her with a broom- stick, and cutting her neck with a wood hook : he then took from her 22jGd. threw a bag over her head, cWed the window- curtain, went up stairs, broke open a box, took an entire suit of clothes, belonging to the husband of the deceased, in which b • dre? sed himself, left the house, after locking the door tnd throwing away the key. He then went to the river, where he sunk the whole of his own clothes, except his hat, which he left near the corpse of the woman. He was conducted to Kingsbridge, with a view to ascertain if he w- » s c. mcetm- i in the murder of the child at Dadbrooke, •.••*> : be ' 2') t! j of January last, as he had been four times hended and examined by a Commitee rif Geiide. men and Magistrates, which had been firmed f> r the purpose of investigaiing that foul deed, hut had escaped for want of sufficient evidence. Tues. day morning, after requesting his Uncle to be sent for, in his presence, and that of the constables, he confessed the horrible aft, by saying, " Well, I did murder the child." Upon being interrogi- ed as to the particulars, he further stated, that about six o'clock in the evening of the 20' h of January last, he met the child between B H Cross ^ nd the Houses; that lie intreared her to shew hi n the way to Sentry- gate, and he would give her penny : she complied with his request, and pro. ceeded over the stone steps and the stile leading to it; that in the second field he took htr out of the path, went across that field into ( he n? xt, whc? t he attempted to violate h ••- perso- i, but could no' effect it, in consequence of her cries and rt- siitanc ; he then took a stick from the hedge, struck her twice on the head, which he supposed to h iv; stunned her, as she made no more noise, after wards dashed her head to pieces with 1 ; rge stones; and ir being dark, he says, to be quite certain she was dead, he felt with his hand, and found her brains were beaten out; he stripped ber of her clothes all but her stockings, which he intended to have taken away, but thinking them of little value, left them in the same field, except the shift 5 he then wer. t to a pool, near Sentry- gate, washed his trowsers and his hands, and wiped them with the shift, which he threw into the hedj; e; he re- turned to his lodgings at Moreleigh, at atiuiu half, past nine o'clock. He strongly assert', he has no associate, but was the sole perpetrator of these bloody murders. Another horrid murder was committed last Monday night at Longford, a small village ne^ r Market Drayton, Shropshire ( about 10 miles dis- tant from the place where Mr. Moray was mur- dered by his wife and servan'), on the bodies of Mr. F.

On Wednesday the Coroner's Jury sat, but no discovery had then been made of the wreches who had perpetrated the deed; but it wis snj « posed to have been done before eight o'clock in the evening, as they generally retired early ; o bed.

The London Papers of Tuesday the 1" lth ult. have arrived, and contain some interesting intelligence from Russia, brought by a Gottenburgh Mail. The fallowing is an< abstra.£ t : Diypatches from Lord Carhcart state, that there are reports from Gen. Kutusow of the 23d ult. w!> ich stare, « that the army was on the Culurgena r^ ad, towards Tools, Kalouga, Orel, and with a strong party nn the Mojaisk road. On the 19th he tent General Floraisky, with the 11th division of Cossacks and the Mere Polski Hussars, to watch the enemy, who discovered four regiment's of ca- valry in the village Snamenska, and made prisoners 401 men, 16 officers, and 40 petty officers, leav- ing great numbers dead on the field. " On the 21st and 221 of September, the Riis. sian parties brought in 500 prisoners. " On the 23d, the d* y he writes, he had sent Gen. Dorocoff on the Mojaisk road, who reports having taken six officers and 200 men. " In the meanwhile Lieut- Col. Davidoff, with 150 light cavalry, had been aCfve in cutting off the enemy's communications between Gjatck and Mojaisk. " And Adjutant- General Win'zergerode was aflive in the Mojaisk, the Twer, and Jasvierlaff roads. " The abstract of Gen. Dorocoff's Report is just received :— He states, that having sent Captain Udina on the Mojaisk road, he had taken two Captains, five Officers, 92 men, with 36 waggons of artilleiy stores. " Other accounts state, that in successful affairs of part; P? i 20 ] arge waggons, with artillery stores, and 300 men had bee taken." All the Russian armies are in a state of activity, receiving daily reinforcements, and full of confi- dence and courage. The private accounts by the Mail state, that General Wintzergerode, who emmands the army on the north of Moscow had had a brilliant aflion with Murat's cavalry, and took 3000 men and two guns. It is added that General DoCtrow has even taken Smolensk and all the supplies it contained. At Mojaisk a large quantity of ammunition was found. Tormassow's army and the Moldavian army are marching to Smolensk—' hey are ar- rived at Pisnk. This is said to have obliged Bo. naparte not on'y to order Victor's corps to join him, but to direCt Macdonald to abandon Cour- land and Livonia. The Russian force was thus distributed at tbe date of the last accounts:— Wittgenstein was on the Dwina, at Polotsk, communicating with Wintzergerode, who occu- pied all the road frow, Twer to the vicinity of Mofcow and M"> iaisk. At Mojaisk, Wi . tzerge. rode'e right touched Kiitnsow's left wing ; Ku- tusow's right extending to Kalouga and Toila; Doctorow's army was said to be in the rear of Mojaifk, at Smolensk ; and Tormassow and the Moldavian army were arrived at Pinsk, on their route to the Dnieper. Meanwhile Bonaparte is pressing reinforcements from all parts, and every article from every part mentions the requisitions that have been made for more troops. Vigor's corps passed the Wilna early in September. Bonaparte, according ao'Jthe Berlin Gazette has quitted Moscow, and is at Petrovitz, on this side Moscow, we believe. At Pet rsburgh, every measure not only of vi- gour, but of precaution, has been adopted. One of these is, the removal of the Russian fleet from Cronstadr to a British port. It' is for this we believe, the North Sea Pilots have just been sent to the Baltic. Perhaps this is a proof of that want of confidence in the present Ministers, which, according to the rartizans of the Marquis of Wel- lesley, pervades the Northern Courts. COURIER- OFFICE, TWO O'CLOCK. On the S'h, just before the accounts came aw. ay from Riga, a Courier arrived from the Emperor of Russia, at Petersburgh, bringing in- telligence that Bonaparte had quitted Moscow, and that a battle was expected. Kutusow had completely cut off all communi- cation with Poland— and the peasants were every where raising in a mass. Smolensk was certainly in the hands of the Russians, and Wittgenstein has driven St. Cyr, late Oudinot's corps, from Polotsk. In the expedition from Riga, the retreating Prussians were reinforced by 25,000 men by Mac- donald. The Russians lost no prisoners. The valuable effects of the Imperial House and Government of Russia have been forwarded to Sweabourg, a strong fortress on the Gulph of Bothnia, and 700 h. ojses have been sent in that diiection, for the conveyance of the Imperial J Family, should its departure from the capital bt rendered necessary. The Swedish letters st. ate, that tbe Expedition from thence is abandoned, and that the troops are ordered into winter quarters. They likewise mention it as a report, that the Danes have de- clared war against the Court « of Stockholm. The Russian Fleet, it is said, is eone from Win, go sound . ro Cronstadt ; some expected that although so late in the season, it would have threatened Zealand. With respect to the recapture of Smolensko, we can state, that the letters from Gottenburgh generally allude to it as an undoubted fact. A Gentleman who came passentrer in the las' P c- kef, affirms, that he had seen the Russian Bulletin on the subject brought to Stockholm by a Couri- er ; he believes the dated of the caotur » by Gen. Doctorow to be the 27th ult. and recollects the ac- count to enum rate great quantities of stores and magazines having fallen into the hands of the Russians. Most of the Russian corps in ' he. rear of the " rench Grand Army were centrating at Smoleisko, with the view, of course, of cutting off the Enemy's supplies to Moscow. The Arab sloop of war has been ordered to Yarmonth to take on board an Ambassador from the Regency of Soa; n to the Court of St. Peters- burgh. Upwards of twenty pilots will also pro- ceed to the Baltic in the Arab. It is reported that they are to take charge of the Russian fleet in the Baltic, which, instead of being locked up during the winter months, as usual, will, it is add- ed, pay a visit to the English Channel; and a naval expedition against rhe French coast, in con- junction with a British fleet, is talked of, as a diversion in favour of the common cause, during the absence of Bonaparte in Muscovy. A series of dashing enterprizes, upon the plan so often recommended by Lord Nelson, Sir Hume Po- pham, and latterly by Lord Cochrane, would go farther towards effecting a general pacifica- tion than a thousand negociations. A great number of muskets aru now made in the Uni'ed States, but they are of a very indiffer- ent quality. The Government armoury is at Springfield, which turns out 1200 per month. The most important commercial faCt stated from Russia is, that all British property which had heen- placed under sequestration, had been given up to the claimants. The merchants on the coast every where were imitating the prudence of the Government, and were sending off all their move- able effects. The ducat was at 24 roubl s, which was formerly at three roubles. Nothing is men- tioTied in any of our advices, of the intention of removing the Russian fleet from the Baltic, but it is hinted that it may be soun employed on an enterprise against Denmark. It is ascertained, that an American privateer has made its appearance in the Channel We presume that it has not crossed the Atlantic, but has been fitted out at Bourdeaux, or some other of the harbours of France. A new Governor for the Island of Prince Ed- ward in the Gulph of St. Lawrence, has just sail- ed to relieve Governor Des Barres, who is recal- ed from that duty. C. D. Smith, the new Go- vernor, is brother of Sir Sidney Smith. Monday and Tuesday mornings, American seamen on the river Thames, whether in licenced vessels, or others, have been seized, and sent on board the Enterprize Tender off the Tower. The British arms in the Indian Ocean are com- pleting a system of conquest over the Dutch settle- ments. The islands of Macassar and Timour have surrendered to an expedition, composed of a few ships of war, and the 59th and 84th regiments. ELECTIONS. CARRICKFERGUS ELECTION.

When the Elec- tion was over, the Representatives were borne through fh° town of Roscommon, in Chairs taste- fully decorated, amid the acclamations of the populace, who were regaled upon the occasion ; arid a sumptuous dinner, at which the most per- fect harmony^ prevailed*. was given by the Mem- bers to their respective Constituents.

Mr Cronv * of Neal- park ; and Colonel Dillon was propo ed by Colonel Browne, of the South Mayo Militia, and seconded by Patrick Lynch, of Cloher- house, Esq Each of the Representatives a Idressed rhe Electors in appropriate and constitutional lan- guage. COUNTY OF DERRY~' ELECTION. On Monday last, after the usual ceremonies were gone through, the Sheriffs proceeded to the Election of two Representatives for the County of L. Derry in Parliament, pursuant to public Notice. James Scott, of Willsborough, Esq. addressed the Sheriffs and Freeholders, snd said, he had once more the honour to propose, for their con- sideration, tbe name of the Hon. Major- General Charles Stewart as a fit and proper person for their Representative. The proposal was second- ed by Henry Richardson, of Summerseat, Esq. who said that the distinguished character and conduct of the Honourable General were already too well known to every one who heard him, to render any praise of his totally unnecessary. The Sheriffs then put the question when General Stewart was unanimously elected amidst the loud- est acclamations. The Hon. William Ponsonby was then propes. ed by Samuel Lyle, Esq. who said, that he trust- ed ' he absence of the gallant Colonel would, in no degree, diminish the zeal of his supporters, as he was gloriously employed'in fighting our battles in ' he field. The proposal was seconded by David Babington, of Grocer's Hall, Esq. who paid many handsome compliments to the gallant Colonel, and also to the public chsirafler and condufl of the Right Hon. George Ponsonby, hts uncle, who then stood beside him ; and on the question being put by the Sheriffs, Colonel Ponsonby was unanimous- ly elefted, amidst repeat d ch'efs. Afrer which, General Stewart rose and said, " The grateful task now devolves on me of en- deavouring to return my sincerest acknowledg- ments for the honour now conferred on me of being again elefled one of your Representatives; and, when I consider the distinguished manner in which I have been received, " n my re'tirn to this great C > unty— when I reftetf oil the gratifying reception I met in this City; and lastly, when I avow, that duiing the course of my canvass, I did not meet one single refusal of support, 1 may, indeed, feel proud of this day, and naturally deep- ly anxious ever to see its recurrence. " I will not follow the example of candidates who make professions of their condufl. Every Gentleman will conceive, and the connry will un- derstand, that, having a most dear and near re- lative, high in the Illustrious Personage's Coun- cils who now guides these Realm, that I must be deeply connefted with, and attached to, his poli. tical opinions and measures j and, however there may be differences of opinion, on this head, I am sa'isfied my noble relation yi Ids to no man in deep anxiety for the interests of Ireland, in strifl honor and integrity, and in devoting his time and attention to the service of his country. But, how- ever pwlitical sentiments may differ, there is one opinion in which all heads unite— all hearts ( - spe- cially of Irishmen) do justice to— It is that of just'y appreciating the exertions of our gallant armies and their invincible Leader— a contempla- tion of their expioi's makes every man enthusiastic, and awakens every feeling that can animate those living under our inestimable Constitution That I am the friend of such a man, is no less my pride than that I am once again the Representative of this County. With respect to an Hon. Gentleman, Mr. David Babington's advening to my h> vi g the honour of such an individual as Col. Ponsonby united with we, in this great trust, on the present occasion, I am sensible of the meritorious charac- ter of that honourable Officer— his amiable man- ners— his early fame, as pointed out from rhe de- tails of the battle of Salamanca. I am also sen- sible of his great and distinguished family, th. ir talents, and abilities ; but, in appreciating these, I must also recollect my old companion and friend upon former occasions of this sort, who must ever, individually, possess my personal re- gard, from old habits of intimacy, while his great and noble family claim from me every respect for their constant kindness to me. To one of their respectable connexions, tbe worthy Baronet who represents this city, 1 have to offer my most grateful acknowledgments, for his attention to me on all occasions ; but, estimating all as I do, my object must ever be to live in the good opi- nion and affections of every man in the County, to carry his suffrage along with me, and to value his support as becomes me. After some expressions of individual obligation, the Hon. and Gallant General concluded, and was loudly cheered. The Right Hon. G. Ponsonby then addressed the Sheriffs and Freeholders, and thanked them for the high honour they had paid his Nephew, Colonel Ponsor. by, in placing him in the proud situation of Representative of this Independent County, an honour which was rendered still more gratifying by its being bestowed upon him during his absence. He assured them, that their confi- dence should not be misplaced, and that they would find Colonel Pi nsonby's public condu& such as he trusted would induce them to continue him long in the high situation to which they bad raised him } he was convinced he would be proud o have, as his Colleague, a brave and galldiu Ge. noral, who had add" d so greatly, by the splendour of his achievpmentS', to the honour anel glory of Ms countrv. At the conclusion of his speech, Mr. Tonsonby was greeted with loud cheering, and was afterwards chaired to his lodgings. U the eveninT, tb-= re was a public ordinary at the Ki g's Arms Hote1, which was numerously attended. We are fav red by our correspondent, with the following particulars :— On Wednesday the 21st inst. the F- eeW. ders in ! he middle and southern p< Vts rf the county, having heard that the Right H n. George Pon sonby was on the way towards Dtingiven, many hundred? of most respeft ble Farmers'on horse- back, together with a proportionate number on fiot, collected in various dire/ linns. This move- ment was no less spontaneous than sincere, and, notwithstanding the lateness nf the hour, and the heavy fall of rain, they passed over a mountainous distritf of more than nine miles, for the purpose of welcoming to their borders the man of the peo- le, the respectable uncle of their beloved candidate About eight o'clock in the evening, the caval- cade arrived in Dnngiven, when, the horses being taken from the carriage, Mr. Pmsonby was drawn by the people of the town, amidst the acclama- tion of the inhabitants, to the hospitable mansion of Robert Ogilhy, Esq. where a seleft party, in- vited by that steady and disinterested friend of liberty and independence, shared with their wor- thy host, in every feeling and every demonstration of satisfaction which, by rheir hop « s and their cause they were enti led to enjoy. The next day was employed by Mr. Pons nl y, in visiting his friends of the neighbouihood, and on Friday he proceed- ed to Somerseat, the residence of Henry Richard- sop, Esq. where also, he had the gratification of a reception, which, in its cordiality and elegance, was worthy of a distinguished Navy Officer and an accomplished Gentleman. On Saturday, Mr. Ponsonby was entertained at the country residence of his highly respefled friend David Babington, Esq. and on Sunday he was met at Mr. Smyth's, of Ardmore, by a numerous company, residents of this city and neighbourhood. Monday being the day of Eleftion, Mr. Ponson- by, attended by an almost innumerable escort of Freeholders on horseback, proceeded to London- derry, where he arrived about now. No sooner had the carriage made its appearance, than the populilce of the City hastened to meet it, and onse more, Mr. Ponsonby, with his friends, Mr. Lyle and Mr. Babington, were drawn along the bridge, and through the principal streets, amidst shouts of affedlionate applause. Colonel Ponsonby was proposed by Mr. Lyle, and seconded by Mr. Bi- bington, both of whom addressed the Meeting in a manner equally animated and appropriate. When General Stewart had concluded his ad- dress, such agitation prevailed in the Town Hall, from the anxious expedition of the people to hear Mr. P nsonby, that his speech was scarcely audible to those who were beside him; fro* n the uopreceden ed concourse of people, and the almost insupportable closeness of the place, his address was more concise than either he intended Or the assembly wished. After the e'. eflion of the Members, Mr. Pon sonby was chiired, on behalf of his nephew, through the Diamond, and the adjacent streets, until he reached the hou= e of bis friend, Alderman Lecky, where fruit and other refreshments had been provided. In the evening a public dinner was prepared, which was attended by Mr. . Ponsonby, General S ewart, and their respeflive supporters ; the friends also of Lord George Beresford joined the company, with a liberality and good temper which deserved and obtained universal approbation— Captain Richardson, being called to the Chair, presided with his chatafleristie good sense and politeness, and so happily conduced was the en- tertainment of the evening, that a conviviality, prolonged to a late hour, was throughout main- tained on all sides with ihe most gentlemanlike propriety and good humour. On Tuesday, Mr. Ponsonby dined at Oaks, the seikt of James Acheson, Esq. where, in the society of attached friends, he passed the eve of his de- parture from this County, in which he received no common- place pledges of affeftion, and towards which he acknowledged no ordinary gratitude and obligation. A BRIEF EXTRACT From the Reports of the Inspectors, upon the Flax Crops of 1812. ULSTER. ANTRIM.— The Flax crops remarkably good in the North distrifl, and the quantity of seed likely to be saved therefrom, will be very consi- derable. The judicious notices distributed through, out this Province, by the Provincial Inspeflor, urging all growers of seed to save seed on ac- count of the American war, had a great infftie . ee upon the saving of seed. In the South dis rift there is a three- fold quantity produced c- mpared with foimer years, and of excellent quality. Very little seed saved in this district. ARMAGH.— In general a good crop throughout this County. From an increased spirit of saving flaxseed, a much greater quantity has been saved, than there has been for the last two years. LONDONDERRY.— The Flax crops in this Coun- ty very good and very large, but no sead of any consequence intended to be saved. In the vicinity of Djrry tbe crops are much finer than for many years past, and much seed will he saved. TYRONE.— The Flax crops in the North distriil in general good, but not much feed saved — A much larger crop in the South distridf this year than the two last years, but little seed saved. The poorer orders hardly saved any. DON EG ALL.— The Flax crops i; I general good in this County, but vtry little seed saved. DOWN.— The crops in the North distrift abun- dsn;. Those of the South distrift better than for some years, but very iitti, e seed likely to be saved. FERMANAGH.— The crops in general in this dis- trict very good this year. There has been a large quantity of seed saved. MONAGHAN— An abundant crop of Flax in in this County, and the quality very good. Nearly one- half ot the seed has been sayed. CA VAN.— More Flax this season, and of a better quality than usual. The brig Minena, Capt. Sfeksls, from Newry to New- York, arrived safe on the 28th September. The schooner Rover, of N. Yarmouth, J iseph Gribble, master, arrived a few days in this ha'bowr from Gottenburgh, after, having'lost, m( f Mullen. Head, north coast of Ireland, one of her crew, the top of her for » mast, and her maihrtiist cutaway, boats, sails, & c. and her. gtins thrown overboard. Frort the disabled state of this ie.••• i set, ( as she now lies at our quay.) we- canno stow ton much praise'on the master and her atv,- for their meritorious exertions in bunging her to her port of destination. The Austrian Prince of Latour Taxis ex.- ended last month £ 45,000 in celebrating the marriage of his daughter. The ceremony was perfumed irs Vienna, and the festivities were kept tip near three weeks.' On certain days the guests took the diver- sion of hunting, for which purpose about 50 of the largest wolves that cmld be pr cured, we'tS purchased at au expence of j£ SQ each. An occurrence so tragical in its nature that. we shudder in relating it, took ptaofta few days a « f> at Murrisk, in the county of Mayo. Two female children, the one nine and the other tilpven ye/ is old, were, in the absence of their pa'ems, hickef up together in a cabin in which wore both fire an 1 tow. How they Communicated with each orln - is not known, but the melancholy consequence was, that the two children were li'erallv lyrnt to cit - ders. The house was not c- nstim d,'. iri l ti?<> opening it, the remains ( which consisted merely of the bones) of the eldest, as was s'upprverf frorri their size, were found at the door, to wh: ch it 4 concluded that she repaired in her horrible situ;.-, tion, with the vain hope of efFefting her escape.

A correspondent, living in H" rentes- street, di- rects our attention to the very improper practice of some fbrffish individual, in tiring guns, tor his amusement, in the dead of the night.— This mis- chievous person, if he persists, ought to he taken before the magistrates, who would, no doubt, put him on some other way of diverting himself.

Wished for the laudable purpose nf protetip r r! 9 property of our inhabitants, it seems obvious to me, that each individual who has set down his name a Constable, should not, nnder any pretence ' tfha'- ever, desist from the duty of that station when service is required.

GENERALUS. Belfatt, Nov. 2, 1812. [ We have another Letter on the same subject, from a " Citizen of Belfast," but prefer the above, on account of its brevity, and as contain- ing the substance of theCitizen's communication. J r. tbe EDITOR of tbe BELFAST CHRONICL E. SIR— A few days ago there was a funeral pass- ed down High- s reet, attended by about 40 men, walking two and two, and each wearing a shoulder- scarf. The novel appearance of the procession induced me to make inquiry respecting the nature of it, and I fop » d that it consisted of the members of * Friendly Society, paying this last nihute of re^ speft to the remains of a regrstt^ d member. I was also informed, that the Society was or- ganized in 1809> that it at pres- nf consists of 60 members, mostly mechanic*, who pay. quarterly, 2s. 6d. each, into a common fund, which is appro- priated as follows:— Each member, who, from bad health, is unable to attend to his usual avo « . Cation, receives 5s. per week j and if he'is so 111 m to be confined to bed, he is allowed 8;. 4t/. per week. On the death of a memher, his friends re- ceive £ 5 towards defraying his funeral expences ; and a married member, nn the death of his wife, receives j£ 2, lOr. for the same purpose. Such is tbe outline of the plan, which is filled up with minor regulations, adapted to the man- agement of whatever conc rns this S > cety.— Theii funds have hitherto been amply sufficient to meet all demands, and have proved a valuable resource to many of the contributors. In many parts of England and Scotland simi- lar Societies are very common, and aie much en- couraged by many whose situation in life renders them independent of such aids. In Leiand such institutions are yet in their infancy ; but as they only require to be known to m ike their good ef- fe< 5ts apparent, I hope they will continue extend- ing, until they embrace every individual whose subsistence depends on his health and industrious exertions. Their utility at present is peculiarly manifest; a man's earnings being scaicely sufficient 10 pro- cure the necessaries of life1, any accident affecting his health is certain distress to his family. In- stances of this are not unftequ° nt, and inii; ht, in a great measure, be obviated by the agency of Friendly Societies, where a small matter gra- dually deposited, returns with, perhaps, an addi- tional sum, in the hour of need, not as the boon of charity, but the just rtward of iudustr) and prudence.

A dispaf-' h, of which the following is an ex- tract, b'ts been this day received at Earl Ba- thur't's office, addressed to his Lordship by Gen. J^ e Marquis of Wellington, dated Villa Toro, 11th October, 1812. The enemy have made two sorties on the head of the sap, between the exterior and interior lines of the' castle of Burgos, in both of which they materially injured our work, and we suffered some loss. In the last, at three in the morning - of the 8th, we had the misfortune to lose the Hnn. Major Cocks, of the 79th, who was field officer of the trenches, and was killed in the act of rallying the troops who had been driven in.— I have frequently had occasion to draw your Lordship's attention to the conduct of Major Cocks, and in one instance very recently, iu the attack of the hornwork of the castle of Burgos ; • and I consider his loss as one of the greatest im- port n : e to this army and to his Majesty's service. No. withstanding the etf rts of the enemy, our troops aie established within about one hundred yards of the enemy's interior line, which we have it in our power tn assault; and we have effefled a good breach in another part of the same line, and our troops are established close to the breach. We are carrying on our work under ground, and I hope that I shall have another mine in rea- diness in a day or two. The enemy h . ve not made any movement to in'errupt our cperaticns; they are still upon the Ebro. By the accounts which I have from Lieutenant- General Sir R owand Hill, of the 7th instant, it appears that Marshal S'ult joined Joseph Bona- parte on the frontier of Valencia and Murcia - on tire 29th September. A detachment of Marshal Souk's army occupied Albacette on the 3d instant, and a small detachment of cavalry was as far for- ward as Minayu, on the f> h inst. I have not yet heard of Gen.

Admiral Morris, detailing the operations of the fl » tiUa at Riga, on the expedition against Miua"* The cnrtdnA of Cap'ain Brenton an ! the Lieu- tenants under his orders apoears to have been highlv meritorious upon this occasion, and I trust will be found to merit the approbation of their Lordships. I am, Sir, Your obedient humble servant, JAMES SAUMAREZ. John Wilson Croter, & c, & c. & c. Admiralty. Riga, OS 3, 1812. SIR — In my last I had the honour to inform you, that an attack on the Pmssiansin vicini- y was intended to take plac ab- ut the 2fvh ultimo. A considerable body of troops, under Count Stein, hell, left Riga on that dav, and th" gun boats tin. der the command of the English Officers, accom- panted a strong division of 40 Russian boats, be- sides ten launches, under the command of Admiral MulW, up the river Aa. The enemy had withdrawn his troops from Schlock and his other posts, on the approach of the boats.• We therefore did not meet with any opposition until the 29th, when about five miles below Mitjan ; the enemy had there placed three different booms across the river, about half a mile distant from each other. Within pistol shot of the third boom, which was very strong, and well constructed, were placed three batteries of four guns each The booms were soon destroyed, and as we arrived up, the enemy abandoned their positions with such precipitation, that four 24- pounder « were left in tbe works. The English boats were always in advance, and l] Admiral Muller has desired me to say, bow much he is pleased with the exertions of Cai> t. Brenton, and the Lieutenants employed in the boats. The floiHla took possession of Mittau about noon ; the enemy had not ' ime to remove some very considerable magazines of clothing, grain, and some arms and ammunition. He also left about 400 sick and wounded in the town. In the evening a detachment of the army entered the town. The Prussians retreated from Olai upon Bour- ski, where they had about one hundred and twenty pieces of canaen, intended for the siege of this place : they there received reinforcements on the 29th, which Macdotiald had sent them from Ja- cobstadf. On the 30fh the Russians were compelled to retire from before a force of twenty. five thousand men, who bad nearly eighty pieces of cannon— As the troops had retired to the vicinity of Riga, the flotilla left Mittau in the evening of the 30th ; and, after destroying a bridge, which had been erefled to facilitate the crossing of the troops and artillery, arrived at Danamunde last night. OCT 4.— The enemy's works, which were of a considetable strength at Olai, were destroyed. The loss, on the part of the Russians, i » esti- mated at two thousand in killeJ, wounded, arid missing. The efietr. y must also have suffered severely, and manv prisoners are arrived. I have the honour to be, & c. ( Signed) HEW STEWART. Rear- Admiral Martin, & c. kc Ahoukir. ! RUSSIAN BULLETINS. REPORT FROM GEN. BARON WIN7JNGFR0DE " Dawrdowka, Sept. 23. « Without giving up the road to Twer, I with the greater part of my detachment have taken post here at Dawrdowka, certain of my being able more easily and more frequently to receive reports from my van- guard, as well as from the detach- roents which I have on the roads from Wiodimer, Jaroslav, Dmetrein to Woskninsk, and in the low. lands about Mojaisk. All these detachments daily continue to do the enemy considerable damage which we can perceive by the following motion made by the enemy :— s " The detachment which is posted on the road to Twer, has informed, that on the 25th it made a reconnoisance to the town of Norvo, 24 wersts from Moscow, but afterwards withdrew. " O'Jr Cossack patroles even scour the country as far as tbe town of Jevanowa, towards Moscow. The French piquets are five wersts from me. " Up to the 27th, nothing further had taken place on that road, neither had any thing occurred On the roads to Jaroslaw and Dm'etrein. The ad- vanced posts maintain their form r positions, as likewise the road to St. Petersburgh. " Col. Jalowaisky, who commands my van- guard, had required my assis'ance to surprise the French vati- guard on the flight of the 26th. He attacked it in the town of Hinka, cut the greater part to pieces, and pursued the enemv several wersts. We have taken one officer and 270 men The enemy's loss in killed must have been very considerable, whereas oil our side it was very trifling. " The detachment under the command of Col. Benckendorff, which stands between Wolokolamsk and Mojaisk, sends its reconnoitring parties to the right and left on the road to Smolensk, and have already sent in 100 prisoners taken on tbe road." SUPPLEMENT TO THE ST. PETERSBURGH PA- PER, OCTOBER S, 1812. For information, by Imperial command, sundry measures are adopting here, in St. Petersburgh, for taking away the necessary articles from this city. This by ro means proceeds from any ap prehension of danger to this metropolis. A single view of the position of our troops is sufficient to convince every one of this, and to calm every in- quietude; for the enemy not only cannot approach hither by the way of Pskow and Riga roads, but having been so often defeated by our troops, he can scarcely keep himself there, and will most probably, when the present levies of troops are arrived, not be able to maintain his position.— With regard to the road to Moscow, we allow that it is occupied by the enemy, but only for a very short distance; for Adjutant- General VVin- zingerode, who is posted with his detachment be- tween Klin and Moscow, sends his patroics almost daily close under Moscow. Our troops are like- wise in Twer, and besides this the Field- Marshal Commander- in- Chief observes the enemy's motions with his whole army. In consequence he can neither march hither himself, nor detach any con- siderable party of troops, without being pursued by us. According to all these circumstances, it clearly appears that the city is not threatened with the least danger. As to transpoiting the nccej. sarv good* away, as b? f- sre- tnsntioned, th's is mere'v Hon" in tim? lv foresight, to be b fore'-; ind with the freezing of the rivers. The present tim** ' oes not threaten the least danger; but we should sin against God, if we were to take up'^ n U? to decide on future events, which are only- known to Him. We h ve every hope o" our side of extir- pating the enernv, notwithstanding the progress of his motions in the interior of Russia ; but never- theless, and under circnm• jances the most unequi- vocal, the thoughts of prudential nieasti- es ought not to give rise to fear or dejrflion. These mea- sures are taken in a time of safe'y, and merely to orovide against any dinger ( which m ay Gid pre- ven*) that might threaten this city, when the Go- vernment, by making this timely public, and by having all km s of heavy articles already sent out of the "' ay, will have rendered the means easier for the inhabitants to remove from hence into the interior of the country in better order, and with- out confusion. It being once for all fixed and determined ( and in which, no doubt, every Russian will voluntarily concur), that whatever may be the progress of the enemy, rather to drain the last drop of the cup of misery, than by a scandalous peace to sub- ject Russia to a foreign yoke. EXTRACT OF A LETTER PROM ST. PETERSBURGII, DATED OCT. 2. " Gen. Winzingerode stands on the road to Moscow, near Twer, with a corps of about 30,090 men. Kutusoff is to the southward of Moscow. It is endeavoured to close Bonaparte in, so that he can neither receive supplies nor troops, and will be forced to cut his way out from Moscow. In one word, we entertain the best hopes, but use such ptudential methods as if all hopes were lost, which is, most assuredly the best way. " The left wing of Piince Kutusoff's army, has defeated a lesser co- ps of the French army, and taken two pieces of cannon and 3 or 4 000 men. The garrison of. Bobrinsk, wh; ch had received orders to march to Tormasoff** corps, has taken seven pieces of cannon, and 1,500 men from a French detachment. T- chsitcliagoff's and Tor- massow's joint force has already arrived at Pinsk, and conseq » e » tly harass Napoleon's grea' line of operations. This joint corps is now marching on Smolensk. General Winzingerode's right wing, which stands at Woskusensk, began to join Ku- tusoff's left wing at Mojaisk, by which the com- munication in the rear of the French army is cut off. Finnish troops arrived at Riga on the 22d September, They have commenced their opera- tions *.'* ith defeating the enemy, and taking 800 prisoners. We every moment expect information of the enemy's corps being totally defeated. He has been weakened on this point by Napoleon's having called Marshal Macdonald from thence to his assistance. " French Officers who were taken prisoners in the battle of the 7tb, state, that the French army was in the greatest disorder, and that it was mere- ly through the superior talents of the Duke of Elchingen that the army was rallied after the affair." SPANISH PAFEHS. ; CAMP BEFORE BURGOS. SEPT. 20.— It has ahendy been sru'd, that on the 19th, at night, tbe English took with the bayonet the strong redoubt to the notth of the Castle ; but the circumstances which attended the capture, and which will display the intrepid character of the assa'lants, are well worthy being noticed. 400 Portuguese, carrying scaling ladders, led the van, but on their arrival at the fosse, they fo'- nd the lad- ders were too short. They hesitated for a moment, but at the same instant came up the famous brave Highlanders, who commenced the attack like lions, who locking their bayonets, were mounting by them, thus supplying the defedl of ladders.— The result was, that they cut in pieces all they found within, with the exception of about 40, to whom they gave Quarter, which they earnestly implored. SEPT. 21.— Three pieces were sent into the re- doubt that had been taken, also timber, and other materials for constructing a battery. SEPT. 22.— The enemy threw balls and hand- grenades into the works at the redoubt, but did not prevent their continuation. SEPT. 23.— At night the enemy kept up a live- ly and continued fire of howitzers, cannon, mus- ketry, and hand- grenades, which lasted five hours without intermission. According to all appear, ances, an assault was making on the Castle, with scaling, so at least we judged from the camp, though we could not b'l' condemn what we con- ceived to be a very rash attempt; but to- day we found that it was to cover a ssdly which the enemy had endeavoured tn make to procure water from some neighbouring wells, but in which they did not succeed, but lost in the attack, two pieces of cannon, and had many killed. The first re- giment of Asturias, which garrisoned the city, and opposed an intrepid resistance to the enemy, also suffered some loss. A flag of truce was to- day sent to the Colonel of the enemy, intimating that he must abstain from firing upon and destroying the city, or expeft the severest treatment. A peasant, who in the attack to- night had contrived to escape from it, and who had been employed in it, though much against his inclination, to take care of the cattle, assuies us that along with the French are many traitors, who throw themselves at their feet, and intreat them with tears, to listen to no capitula- tion, for there is great reason to hope that relief will soon arrive. Such is the meanness to which the vile wretches who have conspired against their country can descend. Tne French treat them with the greatest contempt, and only use them well at far as it is conducive to their own views. The answer which Bonaparte gave at Madrid to one of his Marshals, who blamed him for his ex- cessive compliance with their applications for fa- vour, is well known—" we roust support and humour them till our work is done." It is no- torious through the whole province of Burgos, that the degenerate Spaniards who follow in the train of the French, are called by them the Canaille ; an honour well deserved by those weak and ignorant men who adhere to the maxims and party of the tyrant. SEPT. 24.— Eighteen French deserted to us.— Tbe English have begun a covered way from the redoubt they have taken to thf citadel. ST- PT. 25— It is said the fugitives in Pancorbo are already besieged by the gr » at Anglo Portu- guese division, which went from h ace after them ; but this wants confirmation. SEPT. 26.— Those besieged are in great want of water. They have got some poor women, whom they let do'< n over the wall, giving them (" ot'r reals for every bucket full they bring them. SRPT. 27.— Tbe work of the covered way is i con'inued, as is a'so the fire of the besieged. At night the I- t regiment of Astuiias took a small parapet, which the enemy had to the east cf the Castle. SEPT. 28.— The covered way was completed, and from it a mine begun, which is carried on ! ith the greatest aftiviiy, and, it is said, will- be blown tip to- morrow. The enemy defend them- selves with great obstinacy, though we know they suffer greatly from the scarcity of water; but all their resistance, according to their situation and the state of our works, cannot continue more than four days. OCTOBER 4.— This morning, at day- break, a brisk fire of artillery was begun from the English battery constructed in the redoubt, to which the enemy answered with corresponding briskness.— Tour mines are alreidy charged, and prepared at the first word to throw down a great part of the wall that surrounds the height on which the cas- tle stands, and according to the appearance, and the dispositions made, they will be blown up to- night o/ in the morning, so that in a few days we shall lie masters of the fortress. The Inhabitants of the neighbouring country look up with en- thusiasm to their deliverers, and make every ex- ertion to give assistance to the allied troops. HUMAN SACRIFICES. We have often noticed, with pleasure, that th « British government in India, is actively and suc- cessfully engaged in discouraging the inhuman ce- remonies amongst the Asiatics, which was wont to attend the death of a relative, and especially the voluntary immolation of widows on the fune- ral piles of their husbands. The praflice is so grafted on the barbarous superstition of the coun- try, so woven with its religious doflrine, that al- though the interference of our people has rendered it less frequent, it will probably requiie a length of time, and strong military exertion, wholly to prevent it. The custom is at present confined to the Brah- mins ; and when individuals of this cast dies, his principal widow is deprived of her charaiter and cast, ? nd becomes infamous if she refuses to sacri- fice herself; and she is further urged to suicide, by an opinion which the priest zealously inculcates that after they die in this manrer, they enjoy the most exquisite happiness. They, however, are some imes wanting in resolution, and to retain life, submit to the penalties wh; ch a birbarous custom has attached ; o it. In other cases, again, a sense of shame, and the upbr- itdings of their friends and relatives, have induced them to atone for this. weak: ess by deaths of aggravated pain:— one of these instances is mentioned, if we mistake not, by Mr. Hastings, when a woman burnt herself wi; h such horrid, yet heroic deliberation, that she was three days in consuming her legs and aims, & c. before the vital spark was destroyed At dif'etent places, the manner of performing this horrid ceremony varies. In Bengal, the fu- neral pile of the husband is constrnfled contiguous to a wall, with space enough between for a single person to walk, as it is customary for the widow to walk three times round it previous to the cere- mony. A hole is made in the wall at the height of the pile, in which a beam is placed, Upwards of twenty feet long, with a rope fixed to its end, for the purpose of making it osculate. After the widow has performed her ambula- tions, and takes off her j wels, which she distri- butes amongst her c mpanions, she ascends the pile, and falls prostrtte, embracing the body of her husband ; the beam is then put in motion, and falls so heavily upon her as to break her back, and deprive her of the power of moving. The pile is then set on fire, and martial music, com- bined with the shouts of the people, completely drown the groans occasioned by her agony ; while she is thus, in the most perfefl sense of the expres- sions, burned alive. In Assam, when any of the Rajahs, Magis- trates, or principal men die, an immense cave is dug for his corpse, and his wives, servants, and elephants, are likewise entombed for his future state and convenience ; provisions, lamps, oil, & c. are buried with them ; but as these cemetries are never opened, it has not been ascertained how long the unfottunate women live; but it is probable that the damp and want of air, shortly terminate their sufferings. INDIA. BOMBAY COURIER, MARCH 21 — We are hapPy to notice an instance of good fortune which oe curred the other day to Captain Crawford of his Majesty's frigate Hussar The Hussar was cru s- ing in November last off the East Point of Java, when The fell in with a French schooner of 32 tons, b u. id to Sourabaya, from the Coast of New Holland. On searching this little vessel, the cap- tors were most agreeably surprised to discover, what her size certainly gave no promise « f, that . she was a very valuable prixe, for she had on board 202,480 Spanish dollars. HTDROPHOBIA— On Tuesday the 5; h May, a Bheestie who had been bitten three weeks before in the leg, by a mad dog, was carried to the Native Hospital, about three o'clock in the after- noon, with the symptoms of hydrophobia upon him. He was immediately bled to the extent of 40 ounces. The symptoms of the disease yielded in succession as the blood flowed ; and before the vein was closed, he stretched out his hand for a cup of water, and calmly drank it off, though the mere approach of the water but a few minutes before had thrown him into convulsions.— Af er the bleeding, be lay down on a cot, fell asleep, and continued so for nearly two hours. When he awoke, the symptoms of the disease were threatening to return; another vein WHS then opened, and eight ounces more of blood were taken away, which so completely subdued the disease, that he has not a symptom of it since. A case lately published iu the Madras Papers, as successfully treated bv bleeding; merctry, an l' opium, by Mr. Tymon, Surgeon of his M > jrstvV 22.1 Dragoons, led to the practice adopted in thir instance ; and which, it is highly gra'ifving to re- mark. has even been more successful fhan pn the former occasion ; the cure, in the latter case, hav- ing been almost instantaneously effected, and th. it- by bleeding alotv, without the aid either of mer. i cury or opium ; for, though these remedies vveraf subsequently used, it was quite evident, that flitf disease was previously and entirely overcome bv the bleeding—( Madra- Girz.: ll-.)

HORSE- GUARDS, SEPT. 23.— At a General Court- Martial, held at Lisbon, on the Ist and 21 of June, 1812, Lieut. Peter M'Arthur, of the 3d regiment, or buffs, was arraigned upon the under mentioned charge, viz :— For disgraceful conduiS, highly unbecoming the ch- rafler of an Officer and a Gen- leman, in defrauding Mr. Martin Slack SmaPp iece, a tradesman at Lisbon, of a sum of money on or about th-? 15th dav of March last, by giving the . aid Mr. Martin Slack Smaltpiece, an order upon his • nb. isrencc to the 24th of April, for the nriney obtained, which subsist- ence was drawn by the said Lieutenant M'Arthur, from the '• hands of the Paymaster, prior to the said order being pre- ented for payment. Upon which charge the Court came to the f ,1. lowing decision :— " The Court having duly and deliberately weighed an<" considered the evidence in support of the prosecution, as well ai what the prisoner, Lieutenant Peter M'Arthur, has brought for vatd in his dtfence, are of opinion, ' hat he is guilty of .. efraudiog Mr. Martin Slack Smallpiece, a trades- man at Lisbon, of a sum of money, amounting to twenty- fonr dollars, by giving him receipts' for his subsistence, from the 25th March to the 24' th of April, which subsistence had been received previously by the prisoner, Lieut. Peter M'Arthur, which being in breach of the Articles of War, the Court do therefore sentence the said Lieut. Pett i M'Arthur, 3d regiment, or buffs, to he cashiered: and a deduction of 24 dollars be made from his subsistence, to defray that sum, due to Mr. Mar- tin Slack Smallpiece." His Royal Highness the Prince Recent has been pleased, in the name and on the behalf of his Majesty, to approve the finding and to confirm so much of the sentence of the Court, as adjudges the prisoner to be cashiered; and the Commander in Chief directs the foregoing charge, preferred against Lieutenant Peter M'Arthur, of the 3d re- giment of foot, together with the finding and sen- tence of the Court, shall be read at the head every corps, and entered in the General Order book. REWARD FOR BRAVERY!— The Gazette of the 29ih ult. announces the appointment of Lieut. Sumner, from the 20tb Foot, to be a Captain in the 7th Foot, or Royal Fusileers, without purchasi. The Royal Fusileers is one of the most distinguish- ed regiments in the army s it has been engaged in all the great battles in the Peninsula during the war, and by its desperate bravery regained the battle of Albuera, in which battle it had 36 offi- cers and 850 men killed and wounJed. At Ta- lavera, Busaco, Fuentes Guinaldo, Cuidad Rodri- go, Baulajos, and Salamanca, it bore the brunt < f the fight, and suffered severely in all. Yet is this gallant Corps to suffer the mortification of seeing an officer from a regiment at home, put at once, without purchase, over the heads of all its brave subalterns, some of whom have been five times wounded in the service, and of whom many are ready to purchse on a vacancy.
