THE SUBSCRIBERS to the " NEWRY COMMER- CIAL TELEGRAPH" are respeafully informed, that the arrangements for Publishing that NEWSPAPER, are in such forwardness, that the Editor will be enabled to Print the first Nun. ber on WEDNESDAY, the 18th day of NOVEMBER next. Previous to the commencement of their periodical labours, the proprietors deem it expedient to submit to the public, a candid explanation of their principles and plan.— Aloof from the various parries that agitate the State, they will be calm, though not indifferent speaatofs and recorders of each passing evert. Through the maze of politics, and the tem- pest of jarring faaions, Impartiality shall be their guide, and Truth their'polar star The pages of the TELEGRAPH shall never he contaminated by the vindictive effusions of personal malice, nor the wild ravings of inveterate prejudice. By the standard of Utility alone, shall every aCt of every party be esti- mated. Regardless of the sources whence public measures may emanate, they will speak of those measures as they may be in themselves advantageous or injurious to the Empire, and by their intrinsic worth alone, will they appreciate their im- portance. Whatever tends to draw more closely the links of social affeCtion and harmonize the passions, shall find ready admitraoce into the colunins of the TELEGRAPH :— The proprietors, therefore, invite every philanthropist, every lover of the arts, and favourite of the muses, to honor them with their lucubrations;— for they know, that the ge- nerous and feeling mind, will often turn away with disgust, fiom the contemplation of war, devastation, and blood, to the rural ' scenes of agriculture, the fairy haunts of poesy, or tjie delightful fields. of science; as the weary eye, pained by the blaze of the meridian sun, looks for relief amidst glades of mingled light and shade, or peaceful groves of green. • They admire the principles of the British Constitution, and are determined to give them their loyal and firm sup- port. Under the influence of these principles, and still more ^ eepjy impressed with that noble and peculiar tenet of Christianity—" Do unto all men as you would they should do unto ^ ou /" they think, the same religious liberty ought ta be " crincedod'to others, wtiich they themselves possess Never- • theless, they are not so tenacioUs of their own opinions, as to preclude from their celumns, calm and temperate discus- sions rm, Catholic Emancipation, or on any other subjr a con- , neaed with the politics of the British Isles; and on all such matters, ^ hey will uniformly preserve the striaest impar. Uality.' . D: flidfent of Viis talent*, yet strong in the purity of his motive, the editor looks with some confidence to a gener ons pah lie, for that success, which he *< ill use every pbusibl effbrtito nterit. The difficulties he has to encounter, in thi new undertaking, are obvious; yet, to counterbalance these he possesses many impprt, ant advantages.— The situation of NEWRY is central; irs mercantile connexions widely extend ed'; its inhabitants'liheral, spirited, and fond of information. A direa and reglilar communication is now established be- tween* tJhis place and Great Britain, by which he will be enabled frequently to anticipate the Dublin conveyance ; and as the Nor. t- henn mail passes through NEWRY, he will have many boyrg ^ dvantajje, in point of priority of time, over most other similar publications. Add to this, that the pro- prietors nave' made' n « b » t extensive connexions in LONDON, and will derive their information from the fountain head.— Iri a word, a better'obstraa and recapitulation of the inten- tions of the Proprietors of the TELEGRAPH cannot be given, than ip the following quotation from their Prospeaus, which has already been submitted to the Public : " Disavowing all party broils, or ephemeral starts of in- furiate and indiscriminate censure, this Paper shall b f ever open to frte discussion, on all subjects, provided the sacred boundaries of candour and moderation be preserved Invio- late.— Uselul traas, of every description, shall meet th rnsist cordial attention.

Henry F. dmond Taaffe, Esq. v. the Right Hon. Wil- liam Downes, Lord Chief Jus net of the King's Bench. i Tliis was an aflinn hrnus; ht by the Plaintiff agains the Ch; ef Justice, for ^ n alleged frespiss and false imprisonment. The Chief Mi'dc? plea 1- ed, by way of justification, his patent as Chief Justice, and that his afl was a judicial art, tinder his crmmis. ion. A demurrer was taken to the plea, and during last Term, Mr Perrin had ar. pued in support of the demurrer, and Mr. J. L. Foster in support of the plea. On this day, Mr. Riehard Pennefather was heard on the same side with Mr. Foster. Lord Norbury— The reply lies with the par y taking the demurrer. , Mr. Pennefather here read that part of the p'eadin& rs to which the demurrer was taken, laid a justification under hi; Lordihip's patent, as Ch; ef Justice of the C nirt of King's. Bench, and that as such Chief Justice having received in'ormafion on oath of the proceedings, at Liffey- treet Chapel, anc the eleflion of Mr. T'aafle as a delegate, & c. See. he did issue his warran', See. an| on the sai 1 Henry Taaffe being brought be£ r> re him he did de- liver him to bail for his appearance, ic. Mr. Pennefather then proceeded to state that such plea had been put in by the Counsel of the Chief Justice, with the view of asctrtaininuf the privileges annexed to his high and dignified office ; that he thought necessary so to state t— that the Court feel quite disembarrassed from giving any weight to the pleading, which it might derive from the character arid learnit. g of the dtfendanr. It was the pleadingnf his Counsel, a pleading which they deemed necessary for the du « maintenance of bis high office, and for tU « gw « er.> and - public weal. In regard to the character of ihe Learned Defendant, his Counsel had, in the tlird plea, set out at length, on the record, the infoimaiior. s up- on which he had ailed. Such plea had not been pleaded, with a view to justify him t » tbeir Lord- ships; but that the facts being put ipon the re- cord, his conduft might be preservec to, and ap- proved of by future ages. With that plea he trusted the Court would have nothing to do ; the plea of his authority as Chief Justice muse bar the present aftion. Most of the authorities bearing onthis. case, had been cited during the argument last term, and this principle wm clearly deducible from them, that for what a Judge, even of the lowest Court, does, whilst acting in his judicial sitaati- on, and as Judge in a matter over which he has jurisdiction, and arising within it, no action lies. Such a pro. position could not be controverted ; the only question that could arise, as to Judges of- inferior !! and limited jurisdiction, would be. was it a mat-' ter arising within or without their jurisdiction.— But in the present case no Such question could arise, because the jurisdiction df the Chief Justice j of the King's Bench is not> limited. by space, but ' reaches throughout the entire kingdom. oOt' those cases then, stnrbly commented on last Term by Mr,' Foster, he ( Mr. P.) would state two or j| threfe to the Court. The most remarfcstste'df them was the case of Hammond against Howell, the Recorder Of Lon- don in 1 Modern, 181, where the case first came before the Court— it was an action against the de- fendant for committing the plaintiff for something he had done as a juror. The Judga was a Com- missioner of Oyer and Terminer. In Bushell's To be published every Wednesday and Saturday. NEWRY, October 30,1812. case, reported In Va'tlghan, 135, for Bushell was in the skmte predicament with Hammond, the Court said that the commitment was illegal, and it Was On that opinion of the Court, this action rf Hammond was founded. Howell applied for time to plead, and then the Court declared their opinion against die action, viz. that no action will lie against a Judge for a wrongful commitment, any more tnan for an erroneous judgment.— and Justice Atkins said it never was imagined, ; that Justices of Oyer and Terminer, woald be ques- tioned in private actions, for what they should dp in the execution of their office ; for if the law had been taken so, the Statute of James would have included them, as well as Justices of the Peace— thereby taking a manifest distinction between Judges of Record and Justices of the Peace The same case came on again in ' 2. Modern 218. and after setting out the substance of tha plead- ings on both sides, and arguments of Connse!, the opinion of the Court was— that the bringing of the aCtion against the Judge was a greater offence, than his lining and committing the plaintiff, and that it was a bold attempt against the Govern- ment and justice in general. It was unnecessary to go through the cases of aflinns against inferior Judges— but there was not on record, a single in- stance of an aftion brought against a Judge of the superior Courtf. In the caje of Mostyn a. Fabri- g3s, in Cowper, 172, Lord Mansfield said, " if a- i action be brought against, a Judge of Record, for an aflion done by him in his judicial capacity, he rtviy plead that he did it as . Indoe of Racord, and that will be a comp! ete^ us'ifi': vion." The « an> e decision is in 12. Coke, page 23,. Floyd a. Barker.' This dritlrine was carried so far as to protert the Sheriff ? s a returning officer, as foual in '. he case of Barnadiston a. Some, as Sheriff of Suffolk, and i| was an aflion on the case, for making a double.,!; return ; and although the plaintiff had judgment in the King's B? nch, yet, on a writ of error tor the Exchequer Chamber, the judgment was reverse.!, and the reversal affirmed in the House of Lords; and the reason was, because the Sheriff aCfed as Judge; which determination probably gave rise to the Starnte of W; llia~ i ITT. giving an afti in in such case aga> pct the Sheriff. The case of Mills and Siyer, in Blackstone's Reoorts, 1141, was in point, which was an aftion against a Commissioner • f Rank'iiptcy, for committing, for not answering I a question ; and the judgment, given by Lord : Chief Jostiee De Grey, was in support of bis ar- gument, and was a great length, valuable, as re- cognising the principles in ai! the oth'.; r cases, that no a& Kio " onld lie against a Judge, as to what he did as a Judge: and marking the distinction be- tiT- ppo the Judges of the inferior and superior Courts. Another case of Johnstone a Sutton, 1. Te- :" Reports, 493, to b- referred to not onlv for the judgment of the Court, but for the gene- ral reasoning and admitted principles. It was an action by a Captain in the Navy against his Com- mander : there was a verdict, and ; 66000 dama- ges— t writ of error was brought in the Exche- quer Chamber ; and it was held, that the action was not maintainable. So fir it should be admitted, what was not doubted for the last century- that no action- would lie against, a Judge, as a Judge, and ( said Mr. Pennefa'her) it is right and proper, my Lords, th- it such protection should be given to the Judges, who are called on by their duty to judge between man and man, in every place, on every subject, in a variety of instances. But if a Judge was to be assailable for ev' rv mistake in judgment, for every wrong supposed to bp committed, how in- variably would the angry passions of disappoint- ed suitors burst forth in angry actions against the Judge, whom th - y would exclaim against as hav- ing injured them ? And therefore it is that the i] protection is afforded th': Judge and the Officers the Court, as long as those officers act within their authority. Judges of the inferior Courts are amenable to the Justices of the King's Bench; but they who have jurisdiction throughout the realm, are not answerable for any errors of judg. ment; for any wrong done, as Judges, to the j| party injured,, they arc answerable, as Tu. lges, only to the High Court of Parliament. There the subject will meet redress. But that law with which they are entrusted for the public weal, which commands their attendance on all occa- sipns, in tvevy district of the land, that law will not allow them to be harassed by any fancied in- jured suitor. Such, says the law, would tend to the scandal and disgrace of the Judge, and the most pure of heart would not escape. It had been s* id. there was no wrong without a remedy; it was. a true and general, but not an universal proposition, in the law of England.— There was also a higher and more important maxim, that the law will rather endure a private inconvenience than a public wrong; and whilst the policy of the law protects the person of the Judge, the party i must submit to the inconvenience, or resort to the ' Parliament. Injuries done, amounting to fplony, ' no action is maintainable for them, because the ! public; justice of the country requires reparation to the public in another way. To support the exception to that general rule, of there being no wrong without a remedy, there are many cases in the books : the case in Douglas, of the vessel which was seized, and though released by the sentence of the Admiralty, yet no action 1 iy at the suit of: the passengers who were detained.— Mr. P. eqnefath^ r said, that so far he had argued, assuming that the a a of the Chief Justice was a iu licial p. ft. He would refer their Lordships to i the language of the plea stating the nature of the • aft. Btit the plea had in fa£ t been demurred to, i so that thereby the faCls charged in it, if legally i and properly pleaded, were admttted. It was said that this, was matter of law, not fafl, whether it was uone . as Chief Justice or not, that is, what he may lawfully < lo as such ; that is, I admit, matter of law ; but whether he afled as Judge colore officii pirtute officii, that is matter of faft— if it be an a£ l at all which he might have done as Chief Justice. The demurrer admits the question, has be afted as Judge ? In Wilk/ s Reports, 131, this doflrine and rule, of pleading is recognised ; it is a case of replevin, where judgment went for the defendant •— and I am sure, said Mr. P. had not the Gentle- men at the other side feared the admission on the pleading, feared to have recognised the Chief Jus- tice in the a£ l they complain of, their respetf for the character and learning of the learned Judge, could they have done it with a proper sense of duty to their client, would have induced them to give him the stile and title which they knew he pos- ' j sessed. Had they not feared the admission, they would not have commenced the declaration by tailing him William Downes, Esquire. Mr. Pennefather was here interrupted— the fa& being that, the declaration did stile him Lord Chief Justice of the King's Bench. Mr. Penne- father said, he had been njisinstructed, for that the faCt he found only applied to the writ in which he was stiled, o ily William Downes— hut what he • argued, would have been an admission if the fafl were so, now that it was so, his argument availed him. For the support of this most unusual aflion there vras not a precedent in the books— the no- velty of which, according to Judge Buller, ought to be a most decisive argument against it.— He says in Douglas 602, " An universal silence in j Westminster Hall, on a subject which so frequently must have occurred, is a strong argument tt » pro-.-.- that no such action can b=! sustaine !"— tn oninioa upheld by the cose in. 2 Lord Raymond, 914', and Littleton, set. 103. He would nest call t'fieir at- tention to the nature arid dO'ies of the high . and dignified office of the Lord Chief Justice— that it had particularly inherent in it a prtwer of award, iovr process and compelling ' he appearance of any offender— that he did it not as a Justice of the Peace, but it was a distinfl original quality of ' he office ; and that the assumption on the'. ifher side, that he did a£ l as in the capacity of a Justice pf th. j Peace, was not to be found in any book of law, it was only assumed in areument. The Clvef Justice has annexed to- his office, powers which a Justice of the Peace may execu e— he has cert tin powers which a Justice of the Peace is r » ijnired to execute— hut thev aro inherent in, and fl ' wing odt of his office as Ch'sjf Justic* only— and nor by vir- tue of any separate commission. Lord in his 4th In- titure, cites Bracton, and speaking of the Judges of the King's Bench, states ( hem to be " Genera! es. See, Sc. and explains the meaning of the several terms. He also speaks of the Chief Justice of l- etand, as being the same as in England s and blackstone fallows him in his 3d volume, 41, in giving them the same authority and powers, and so dors Lam- bard's Eirenarchia, who seems to take a distinc- tion between the powers of the Court of King's Bench and the Court of Cotnm in Pleas, as if the latter was more lim: ted, and he has this ol I expres- sion, that they had those high powers closed, that is, enclose*! in their office, for the preservation of th, e peace— so says Hale, in his 2 I Pleas of the Cro rn j and again in the first volume of H de, 58( 3, that the Chief Justice, or other Jurice o^ the King's: Bench, may commmd ore femfs, the Mar. dial to arr- jst any person, even although there be no cause expressed in the (. omtr. and. Such was the language of the law; and Hule cites the case of Trognmrton a. Allen. 2. Roll's Abridge- ment, 558, title Trespass, altho. igh it is argtud on the other side, that there the tins'aff having arrested a man by the comm md of the Judge, lie was obliged to obey, and that the case is not con- clusive. But it was not meant to go the length relied on in that case, nor did the present case re- quire it. But then the officer is only ministerial, whereas the Judge in issuing his command is pure- ly judicial. So far then, the Chief Justice may ommir, and he cannot commit in any other ca- pacity except as judge— his authority being de- rived from h'' paten— rhis powers being closed in his iffice. But it is objected, that it is an aft den? out of Court, and that no Judge" for any thing done off the judicial bench, has that protection, which the law gives to the other afts of the Judge, and that he aft. s as a comnon Magistrate, an ordinary individual. B it there is the sam- reas « n wily fse should He protcClrJ in th^ one an ihe other; in the one case he afts at the com- mencement } in the other, during the progress, or at the . daterminatioo of a suit. eomm n case of contracts, a party is held to spccia! bail. The case of fins was also familiar to the Court — fiats at one time in this country, were carried to a deplorable excess, and yet at that time, was it ever thought to bring an action against the Judge, when it would have been resorted to, if it was maintainable ; and what is a fiat, but a process out of Court by a single Judge, to bring the jiarty into Court ? The words are " upon reading the affidavit of A. B let a writ issue." If" an action Was maintainable in such cases, every Judge should keep the affidavits on which he acts, for his own justification. Was that ever done ?— Those affidavits are gone— are lost— and then so would the Judge's defence; and that prove.) the distinction between the Judge and the Justice of the Peace, as the latter always h: slds the infor- mation as his justification, to defend an action, whereas the Judge requires it not,, no action lying against him. It may seem absurd to cite autho- rities that such acts are judicial ones ; but it is • the law as laid down Siderfin 276. < Comberback 157. 1st Blackstone, Smith a. Frasier, 192. those k orders of a Judge in Chamber, are judicial acts, ® and are the law of the land. A Justice of the Peace cannot punish by attachment for a con- tempt of his process; a Judge of Record can. — The power of taking bail and committing i''. quite di-. tin. St in the Chief Justice, from that power in a Justice. of the Peace— the latter is given thp = e powers by statute, and those statutes never touch the office of the Chief Justice. So in the case rf the great writ of Habeas Corpus, what proves that an aCtion would not lie in any instance against a Judge, at common law, is, that we find th? sta- utc only in one single instance giving it, and it wai necessary to give it by statute where he refused granting that great writ of liberty : and when the Aft enforcing the powers of that writ was brought into the House, one of the questions put by the Lords to the Judges was " whether, if a Judge before the statute refused to issue the writ of Habeas Corpus, the party would have a remedy by aCtion." Tlie answer to tba' question ii to b » found in the I04; h ptige of Wilmott's reports, .. id was this " that the suojeCt had n « remedy at law, by aftion or other^ iie, against the Judge fur such refusal." And now, my Lords, said the le irned Counsel, f trust this unusual aCtion, condemned by the si- lence of ages, now for the first time br ' tight for- ward, may be consigned to tin', oblivion, in which it ought to have slept; and that in future, no ac- tion of this kind, tending to the subversion of jus- tice, and the authority of our Courts, may be brought, either for experiment or nuiice; anc that our Judges may rest satisfied and con'tnied, that their high office gives them an hoiwarali'ie, protec- tion, and that they are answerable ouly to that high tribunal, which has power u coireit the errors rf their judgments, or the mistakes and corruptions, f their heart-.

The London Journals of Monday the 9th, are the latest that have reached us, from which we subjoin many interesting selections ;— these, to- gether with the extracts from French Papers, of a late date, received in Dublin, puts our Readers in possession of whatever is most worthy of notice Tn the various puplic prints, which have arrived at this Office since our last. London, Monday, November 9. A mail from Gottenburgh arrived this morn- ing. We subjoin tlie most important article of intelligence received by it, which is nothing less th'an a notification of the arrival of Bonaparte at Konigsberg on his return from Morcow to Paris. CARLSHAM, OCT. The latest accounts from the other side inform us, that Bonaparte is on his way to Paris, and is now at Konigsberg, where he has ordered quarters for 17.000 men. He has issued a Proclamation signifying his in- tention of immediately returning to Berlin, as soon as he has complied with the wishes of 52,000,000 of his people, who intreat him to spare the Russians and return to the bosom of his country, where he is so much adored. Now at length the war in Russia begins to as- sume the aspeft which has been long expefled by the friends of that empire and of mankind. Bo- naparte leaves his army in Moscow to its fate, as be left bis army in Egypt on a former occasion. We trust that fate will afford a still stronger correftfon to his inordinate ambition ; and that this second base desertion of his comrades in the state of desperation into which he had led them, will draw down on him the contempt and * punishment which he merits. The wishes and in- treatie* of 52,000,000 of his snKjefls, is but a pompont phrase for the private intimations sent by his Ministers at Paris, of the plot and commo- tions hostile to his authority, which have been discovered there. The ntit advices from Paris and Moscow wiil give further developements, and we shall soon know all from boih quarters, not- withstanding the anxious solicitude of Bonaoarte and his agents to involve tLt truth in the darkest mysteiy—( Pilot.) The information of Lord Wellington's depar- ture from before Burgos for Madrid, is now fully confirmed. His Majesty's Ministers have receiv- ed dispatches from Sir Home Popham. dated the £ 7th tilt, announcing the fact. Lord Wellington moved frorr. before Burgos- on the 21st, with the British troops,, leaving the Spaniards in the lines. There was a report yesterday, on the alleged authority of letters from Truro, statin?, that a general action had taken place on the 26th, near Madrid; but this intelligence must be premature. The result was stated to lie a victory on our part, but accompanied with a severe loss.— Sucbet was said to be among the slain— three French eagles taken— the enemy retreating to- wards Valentia, See. We are informed, from good authoriiy, tha* there are between thirty and forty sail of Ameri" . can ships, all loaded with hemp, sailcloth, tallow.* iro » nd other articles, the produce of the Balti c bound to America, now at Gottenburgh, to which port they ran, to put themselves under the pro- teflion of neutrality, as soon as they heard of the declaration of war by America against this coun- try, or they must have been all captured by our ih; ps in the Baltic or North Sea.—( Pilot.) The accounts from St., Perersburgh, we are happy to find, are of a very encouraging nature. A report from General Tormazow, of the 25th of September, states, his having repulsed an at. tack of the ensmy, in which PrinGe Schwartzen- berg and General Regnier were personally en- gaged. He likewise details some other affairs in which the enemy were beaten, and confirms the j'Jnftion of the army of the Danube with that un- der his command. This event took place on the J 7th of September. The St. Petersburgh Gazettes contain several re- ports from General Winzingeiode. The latest • iilvicesfrom this enterprising General are of the 11th ult. dated from Klen. The enemy, it ap- pears, had made some offensive movements on the » it. Petersburgh road in that direflion, which had compelled him to fall back. His Cossacks, how. ever, continued to harr. ass their detached parties. A letter from Pernau, of the 12th ult. states a report of the King of Prussia having resigned his Crown. FRoM THE FRENCH PAPERS. Paris, October 31.

The first snow fell yesterday. In 20 days it will be necessary we should be in winter quarters. The forces which Russia had in Moldavia, have joined General Tormassow. Those from Finland have disem- barked at Riga. They marched out and attack- ed the first corps— they have been beaten— 3000 men have been made prisoners. We have not yet received tlie official i elation of this brilliant combat, which does so much honour to General d'York. All our wounded have proceeded to Smolensk, Minsk, and Mohilow. A great number have re- covered and rejoined their. corps. Much private correspondence between Saint Petersburgh and Moscow, makes ns acquainted with the situation of that Empire. The project of burning Mos- cow having been kept secret, the greater part of the Nobles and private individuals had removed nothing. The Engineers have taken a plan of - the city, by markint? the houses which have been saved from the fire. It results that we did. not succeed in saving more than the tenth part of die town. The nine- tenths no longer remain. MILITARY COMMISSION.

The sitting being opened by Count . Dejean, the Reporter read the charges against the accused ; this being done, the sitting was suspended for one hour and an half, when the accused were brought in, free and without irons, before the commission. They were interrogated by ihe President, as to their names, callings, & c. to which tliey respec- tively replied. After being informed of the crimes of which they were accused, and inierrogated by the Pre- sident, and the pistols and sabres produced as evi. dence, tire Military Commission heard the Judge Reporter and the accused, in their defence, pro. duced by themselves ahd two Counsel, who plead- ed for the accused. Flis Excellency the Count Dejean, demanded of the Judges if they had any observations to make; having answered nega- tively, the accused were re- conduffed by the escort to prison, and the Clerk also retired. The Military Commission deliberating with closed doors, the President Count Dejean put the following questions to it:—- Is C. F. Malet, accused of conspiracy, & c. Jtc. Guilty? Is M. J. Guidal, accused of being an accom- plice with the Ex- General Malet, guilty ? And so with the remainder. The Military Commission unanimously declared the Ex- General Malet guilty of the crime against the safety of the State, icc. & c.

The recruiting department, we have heard, is likewise to undergo some changes, all of which promise an amelioration of the present system.

Meade and Mr Savage correspond- ed with the true interests of their country ; they have ever been disinterested; they were ih, e friends of ci- vil and religious liberty, while they detested the doc- trine and conduct of those changeling Ministers, whosedireful projects . and aoxiouslovfe of place has sunk the sttn of England so low in the political horizon.— Mr Savage- also had opposed the Union— such men were naturally in opposition to Lord Castlereagh in the county of Down.— The public mind was unaffected by these artifices ; the abhorrence of Lord Castle- re a pb still prevailed; his deeds ever fresh in the re- Collection of his countrymen.— Should bis future monarch ever seek from him the tale of Ireland's wo - s, well may he say " infantum rCgina, jubes re- novrrre delnrcw." Another, course was to be at- tempted— the Marquis of Downshire was young, and with the glow of ingenuous youth, had s'lt- wn himself the ardent friend of Ireland— » he felt for the oppressed, degraded state of his country, and sought for its amelioration; yet through the de- licacy of an honourable, unbacknied mirid, disgusted with the corrupt and unconstitutional application of power and siui- i'ion, lie hesitated to employ those am- ple nit- ans which fortune had given hitn, towards po- litical purpbses, when he was apprehensive of meeting even the suspicion of being actuated by personal sel- fish motives— therefore he was a fit object for a de- signing, crafty courtier, and he who once called him- self " the Man of the People,"* did not disdain to ente? into, and take a part in the scheme which was intended to impose upon this young Nobleman. — Re- ports were circulated, which could not fail to reach his . ears j it was said the Downshire family was am ambitious of monopolizing the representation of the county of Down, and placing their own instruments in it— flvit it was unjus' » unconstitutional, and injuriom to the freedom of electiop, yet that property ought to have its weight— th. lt much Was due to Hie situation of the Marquis of Downshire, from hi! rank and great landed interest, whilst' it was artfully added, that some consideration ought to- be paid to that" of the Earl of Londonderry, ( who really does not possess any great stock of landed property in the county) ; that electioneering contests . were harassing and destruc- tive— that the peace and tranquillity of" the county would be disturbed by them— that prudence required the consideration of these objects— and, above all, that Lotd Downshire was called upon, for his own honour, for his own pojitiloal character, and out of re- gard to the independence of the county, not to use his influence in the election of its members. N The' whole art and persevering industry of the Londonderry' family was exerted for the purpose of duping the Mirquis of Downshire, so that Lord Castlereagh might overwhelm and crush the indepen dent freeholder, divided from, uassociated with, and unprotected by the natural support and active co- ope- ration of the greatest landed interest of the county.— But it was necessary to impress the idea, that the in- terference of that interest could be'considered as aris- ing only from private, mean, selfish vit- ws* unconnect- ed with general public principles,—' l'ne maturity of years was wanting to meet the snare— circumstances all tended to deaden the natural impulse of a youthful, unsuspecting mind.

COUNTY OF " DOWN. [ We are authorised and desired to insert the following:] [ b'rtm til Dublin Evening Post cf ths SJ / « ,/.] A considerable - sensation was excited in this coun- ty when it became known that Lord Castlereagh had been i » dustriously intriguing for the purpose of being restored to the sitfiation" of its representative. He was well understood, and his well- known cunning versatility, blended with a due portion of hereditary obstinacy, was justly dreaded by those who were alive to the, fair fame of the. county, and the true inte- rests of Ireland. They felt that the Noble Viscount would not dare to expose himself to meet the. free un- influenced Voice- of the public, and the result has jus- tified their suspicions. He cautiously avoided offering himself to the pub- lic not'ice, until he had, by a crafty, insidious policy, as- certained his triumph over virtue and independence. It was artfully and industriously insinuated, by the family and friends of Lord Castlereagh, that a certain Noble- man possessed too great weight, too great an influence in the representation of the county of Down ; that the Downshire family had absorbed tl> e whole of its poli- j tical consequence, and that the twomembeis \ ve; e the creatures of that family, and not the real represent- [ tatives of the county of Down. In such a" point of view were Col. Meade and Mr Savage held up to the publie—" Htnc spargere voces in valgum an'ibignas" — every measure was resorted to in order to dissemi- nate the seeds of disunion,- and; render nerveless the fearing to, pursue his natural coui- se, lest'he might he< supposed to be actuated by motives he felt a hor- ror for; dc- spising the promotion of his own interest, and being imposed upon by the specious, yet absurd separation of that interest from the real interest- and independence of the county of Down, he made a can- did declaration of sentiments, honourable in themselves, founded upon the circumstances of the day, and a lively regard- to the freedom of election. But his candour was abused, and his sentiments perverted— he had avowed, that under the peculiai circumstances of the moment,-- when his brother- was not yet of age, and Mr Sivaff^ tad retired from the county, without any independent man offering himself,' he should not in- terfere further than by supposing the return of Col. Meade, whose political principles were in unison with Jiis own, and that, fc would not presume to take any step to controul the- opinion of the county by any fur- ther application of his interest on the present occasion- How unjustly - and injuriously were those sentiments violated.— The enemies of the Marquis ofDuwnshire - ii. nd. pf Ireland, represented » coalition to have taken place between that Nobleman and Lord Casllereagh. Absurd and unnatural idea ! — such a coalition neither could nor did exist. The recollection, of the Mar- cliioness of Downshire was painfully held by tbese insidious, cold calculators, upon the destruction of the name, the character, and leputation of the county of Down ; but her exertions in the public cause, Iter truly maternal love for Ireland will never be. forgot- ten.; in after- ages, the infant child of Erin will lisp, in gtateful accents, the name of that- illustrious wo- man.— The warm heart of the country expands, ai\ d dilates with pure, unadulterated joy, at the approach of such a personage— slie is amongst us at this mo- ment— her soul and spirit live not iii'vain>- eit re- ani- mates evety particle of. public and private virtue. The friends cif'Loi d Castlereagh, however, ventur-' ed to seek shelter under false pretexts, - and to endea- vour to impose him upon tbe world untfci a character which, above all men, he has little riyht to assume. Yet the county of Down was n- ither so mean nor so pusillanimous, as to tacitly submit to the commands or intrigues of the- noble Lord ; it was necessary that the Secretary of State should fx unmarked, and the character of the county preserved frorti" the degrada- tion which Ireland would attach to the passive, unop- posed election of Lord Castlereagb, as the member of a great, and- what ought to be, an independent county. — A number of respectable, of truly independent free- holders, undismayed by the difficulties of the moment, determined to struggle against the artifices and the power which was resorted to, in order to suppress such a resistance as honour and honesty pointed out. f Six of those persons, possessing both honour and in- tegrity, signed a requisition to the Sheriff, calling upon him tu convene the cotinty, for the purpose of putting proper candidates in nomination tor its represen- tation, In consequence of this, a meeting was held, Mr. Savage was proposed, and on the next morning, being theday of election, his name was withdrawn • proposed as a candidate; the reasons for doing so were- given— it was to erect a foundation whereon to act-— to seek for redress against oppression, fraud, and cun ning. Lord Castlereagh his indeed raicceeded— but how'; and in what manner, urider what circumstances, the county of Down now feels, and IM. ind will know enough has been done, to for ever prevnt the Noble Secretary having the hardihood of off- rin r himself again to the freeholders, or attempting to continue and complete the disgrace of the county of Down. His last effort has been' made— it was the expiring gasp of mortified and disnpointed ambition, toobtiin, what once lost, can seldom be regained— public character. A DOWN FREEHOLDER.

AT DOWN PATRICK. Mr. EDITOBJ— In your Paper we have the death of many worthy persons often well described. Why, then, Sir, are all yr ur letfrtjed and able biographers now silent, and leave a description of the life and death of this heaven- born Virgin, to the pen of so poor a panegyrist as that of your humble servant ? I shall just conjecture two rea- sons, the'^ rue one not being perfectly known to Me: The first is,- that I apprehend a great number of we should be apt to imagine, that war at least, and its concomitant evils, would not appear in the cat talogue of human ifts. But here we must mourn the degeneracy of our nature. Every country of the world has, on the contrary, been deeply stained with blood. In every plfiod of ir, ambition and violence have Seldom ceased to deform andblacken the horizon, destroying all " the beautiful order of things, Which adorns a peaceful state of society. It is still, however, consolatory to relief, that the attainment of peace has been a favourite objefl with the wise and good of all ayes. Let us con- sider, therefore, the causes whiclj render it so de- sirable. \ The security which it affords fa our persons and properties, strik" s us as its most prrtminent advan- tage. In peace, the humblest artisan pursues his employment-, without the dapger of annoyance. He reserves the acquisitions of his industry, to sup- port and alleviate the infirmities of age. But should war once raise his banner, the features of $ the pitfare are. hideously altered. The home of the peasant is no longer his asylum. The cheer- ful song of content is no longer heard in the habi- tations bf industry ; but want, and penury, and woe— famine, pestilence, and death, appear in all , j their ghastly forms, in the train of'the victor. Bur, next to the advantage^ of a secure posses- sion of our properties, we may rank the advance- ments which are made in science and philosophy. In war, the arts and scte^ es languish, and are ne- • gleSed. The mind, indeed, under the inflaence of alarm, is ill adapted to the purposes of reason-' tTifr. Abstratf ideas give place to those of indi- vidual safety ; and the poet and the philosopher, j descending from their elevation, remember they are men. The pencil and the chisel lose their ani- mating powers. We behold no living canvas— no breathing marble. But wf- en tranquillity shall he » e refrjoyed apprehension, genius rises again, brilliant, from its eclipse. The fine arts are again seen to adorn— and philosophy to enlighten the world. Superior excellence, and the qualifications of the mind, ensures superior respefl ; while the talents that fit for the camp or the field, appear only in ) the background. We might here enlarge on the j. beneficial effects of peace, upon commerce, upon j agriculture. We might contrast thsm with the j opposite effects of war ; but the recolleflion of a ! late unhappy period is fresh in all our minds, j And who, when he reflects upon the scenes which j it disclosed, upon the desolation which it occa- sioned, twould ever murmur at the blessings of Belfast, Xovmhcr 10F.

RUINS OF ACHADHUBTHUIGH. To I'M EDITOR of the BE LFAST CHRONICLE. your Correspondents never knew the deceased, and therefore must be ignorant of her virtues, and the great benefits which, through a long and well- spent life, she has conferred upon mattkind. The second is, that, perhaps''^ hey are afraid of being also slain, by those great. ( ahd mighty con- querors who, merely to gratify their own pride and ambition, put a period to the existence of styl innocent a personage, and so gieat a benefaQ- e-- 5$ to the hnm » n race. Be this as it may, it is with great pain and heartfelt regret, I announce that,' at Down and Newry, Civil Liberty lately received a mortal wound, and that by her once pretended fiiends, of which she so- m after expired. Alas! alas ! ye friends of freedom, draw round this lifeless, but still lovely fotafpiiid drop upon her remains tears of blood ; for ye alone knew her worth, and yt alone can' appreciate'' hjf loss— What virtue was there of human Iffe she? did not ^ possess and impart to her votaries. LAnd » l> at has she now left to man worth b's care > Forlorn de | graded man ! bereft of thy guardian ^ n^ el, thy. generous protetftes=, tfiy safety, tby fibiiHtiF, thy happiness, thy all, and left a defenceless prey to thy worst enemies; stript of the honours of thy fature, thy manhood, thy shield, thy courage, thy pleading prospers— thou must now sink down to the pitiable state of an ubjeA crouching slave. I do not pretend to delineate all the virtues of her life, nor fo enumerate all the blessings she has con- ferred upon man ; or even were I equal to this task, my bleeding heart and trembling hand, at present disqualify me for it. All therefore I shall farther say, is, that I saw the Goddess about 3i years ago ( for she could as- tume a human form at pleasure), in all her beau- ty and attractive charms, at a Volunteer review, at the same Downpatrick, where she inspired eve- ry heart with the love of freedom—- the love of his country the love of manly exercise, and the love ofeveiy thing great and good t pleasing sight— I can never forget it! I lately saw her tslso, in a round two Noble Leaving Lough Thomond, I next visited- the impetfeft vestiges of a rwitved Monastery, which may be seen by the curious traveller, on a rising eminence overlooking the plains of Dcrry, in the western extremity of Finhiltpgh * southward of the crot'- hil, and situate on the sloping side of a I oag ridge of mountains, whose feet are laved by I he clear waters of the river Bann. To those who have never ^ visited these remains of antiquity, I can scarcely convey any idea of their rude archi tecture. Some years since the contour of the budd- ing might have been tolerably easy traced, by ir. regular lines of huge stones running in a variety of diredliotw, and striking the eye, at a distance, with a strong resemblance of Stqnehchge, in Wilt- shire ; but a new road passing through the nor- thern angle of the ruin, has quite changed the • piffiire', for a great many of the time- whiteped, unweighable stones, have " been tumbled farther down the declivity into a shapeless heap. When an almost unlettered youth, I have hitherto visited this ruined Monastery; and from what I could then discover of its remiins, I was strongly in clined to " Suppose it a Druidical temple, as well from the artless style of the building, as from what I had'heard re^ peJling it. But I have rince come to more" true knowledge concerning, th? place — It is that religious house called Achadhubthuigh, which was founded at a very early period of Chris- tianity, by St. Gore or GWthe big— the successor of St, Coleman. However, tlie cite of this edifice still remains unknown to the Monasteriognaphers; yet notwithstanding, they have described the very part- / if the country in which it is situated, and even mention its proximity to the BanD. The antiqui'y of Achadhublhutgh, is well evinced in the'coarse, unpolished style of its architecture; yet it must have remained undemolished till the reign of Queen filiiibeth ; for as some labourers were working near if, not very long since, tbey found in an earthen vesSel, a great quantity- of sil- ver, of the size, it is said, of six shilling pieces, Coined in her reign : also a silver bell, which had been used in the celebration of the Catholic liturgy. desponding attitude, hovering fn fhe recedin? re; lr, as seyeral workmen were Lords— who, shocking to relate, bo* struck her 1 remov£ the ' huge rocfes which compose the with deadly weapons; at winch my indignation lfoun( kt> lonS) the). discovered the skeleton of a I rose— I was hastening to her rebel- but sftem- » hu bod thg bones vcr/ k tolerably j stantly fled to a few of her friends assembled at ; ^ till exposed in the open uir, which almost , the County- house, making the way w. th her reduced them t0 dllit.

AND RELIGIOUS LIBERTY.- but a confused heap. Achadhubthuigh was dedi- 1 cated to St. Gore the big ; and his feast, accord- ing to the Christian Martyrology, is held on the 2d of January. The finding of the coin, and silver bell, throws more light on the history of this Monastery, than our annals possibly can; j for there is no doubt, but this was one of those "^ ON PEACE I ' louses were destroyed in the reign of j Although the w^ Teen always more or f^'^ r^ C^ K;'^ \ less agitated, by the tumultuous passions and jar. from the ca9t t0 ^ north o{ portgienoue, through a range ring interests of nations and individuals, yet it has u 0f high hills. On Friday se'nnight, the 6 h a ; sp!^ ncfid Bill and Supper was given at Meu- wlSte* art, tnp seat of the Earl of Londonderry. In consequ - nce of. cards of inv'tfltioti to all the No- bility, Gentry, and families of distinction, in the coucty of Down, & c. nboiit nine o'clock the com- pany began to assemble, and at ten the car. tinges were so numerous, as to form a line from _ the porter's lodge to the principal entrance of the j mansion- house. In this line,, the company ( who were, of course, detained some short time until their carriages could, in their turn, drive up to the entrance) were delighted with a most brilliant spec- if tacle, as, from the numerous globes, of the carriage^ the flambeaux burtie by the servants, and the well- arrange lights in the house, the whole sfcene appear- ed illuminated, and the groves and clumps through the different windings of the avenue, seemed absolute- ly in a blaze ; it was, therefore, with regiet that the ladies parted from this sublimeand highly picturesque scene. This regret, however, quickly vanished on their entrance into the house itself, where the eye was for a moment completely . dazzled with the splen- dour of the scene. Here the elegance of the decora- tions, the taste displayed in the ornaments, the fanci- ful Wreaths of natural and artificial flowers, the b - au-. tiful festoons of laurel leaves, the red and resplendent transparencies, the numerous and well- arranged varie- gated lamps, in short the whole fairy scene struck eve- ry beholder with astonishment and delight, and made them for a moment conceive they were transported, by some, magic power, into the Elysian fields, the seat of bliss and hatniony. In the principal rooms the company were received, the Ladies by Lady Londonderry and Lady Eliza- betli Pratt, with that grace and elegance peculiar to themselves, with that dignified, yet easy and compla cent manner, which, while it excites oi^ r admiration of the possessor, makes us feel so perfectly at ease.' with ourselves; the Gentlemen by Lord Londonder^ ry and the Hon. Gen. Stewartby'the'former, audi the dignity of the Nobleman, and the ease of the gen- tleman ; by the latter, with the easy and elegant man-, tier of the most, polished gentleman, united to the! honest frankness of the gallant soldier. About half- after ten, the folding doors of the sa- loon were tin- own open, and display d a suite of apart- ments, ( in which 200 couple could, with ease joinjin tlie dance), in tl\ e decorations of which was displ; vye< 3 that simplex mmtditm, that beautiful, yet elegant simplicity which we so often read of in ancient poets, yet so seldom meet with in leal life." Immediately after, a fancy dance, by the Hon. Masters Fitzroy- and Stewart, and the Hon. Misses Fitzroy, grand- children to his Lordship, delighted the spectators and commenced the amusement of the night. The< ball was then opened by the beautiful Marchioness of- Donegal! and Alex Stewart, Esq. brother to Loidi, Londonderry. To describe the dancers would be' impossible, suilice it to say, that all the beauty, all) the elegance, and all the grace of the county Down,, were there assembled, each anxious td dis; » fi? jj' fieri charms to the liest advantage, and captivate, by / hose charms, the hearts of the numerous spectators.— Among such a number of truly elegant dancers, it, would be difficult indeed to particularize artyi yet it-; was impossible not To admite the superior eass andj elegance of the Ladies Matilda ind Emily Stewart,; Lady Maria Meade, Miss. Dixon, of Hillsborough,' the Miss Shaws, See. Stc. See. The dancing conti-" nued until two o'clock, when the supper rooms were thrown open, and the company marched slowly to? su'ppbr, the band of the Dumfries regiment playing? God save the King. When arrived at the supper rooms, here, indeed, a scene was displayed which; would baffle every attempt at description— every de- licacy the season could afford, every variety the king-.' dom could produce, every luxury, however rare and[ costly, which could be procured for money, were dis-. played with a profusion and taste which astonished; every beholder. The abundance of game, the pro-; fusion of pine apples, grapes, and choicest fruits, the; exquisite pastry, tjie variety of costly wines, the ele- gance of the 6rnaments— every thing, in short, dis played at once the wealth, the taste, and the magni- ficence of the entertainers.— Between two and three hundred sat down to supper, and, notwithstanding: the number, every individual was as well accommo- dated, and attended with the same order and regulari- ty, as if it had been merely a select party of a few friends in a well regulated house During the sup- per, the greatest harmony and order prevailed, and many loyal and appropriate toasts were given by Ge- neral Stewait, as also several by the company, ex- pressive of their regard for the family, and particular- ly their Noble Representative, Lord Castlereagh, whose health was drank three times three, with the greatest enthusiasm; as was also that of General Stewart, who addressed the company in an elegant and appropriate speech, to which it is utterly impos- sible for us to do justice. A little before four the company returned to the ball- room, and the dancing was again commenced by the venerable host, « vho led off with Mrs. Montgo- mery of the County Donegal, and delighted every spectator by his ease, his cheerfulness, and the evident gratification he received from, being surrounded by so maiiy of his friends. The dancing continued with greut spirit until seven o'clock in the corning, when, after tea and coffee, the company separated, evidently delighted not only with their entertainers but with one another. Thus ended a fete seldom equalled, and' never excelled in this country; a fete unexampled • for the harmony, the order, the propriety, and the elegant decorum observed by every individual there, present. So numerous, so respectable, and so general wa^ the company who honoured this fete with their; presence, that to insert all the ntimes, would occupy too much of this paper, nor indeed would it be in the power of the writer of this article to recollect more than the one half of those present; suffice it to say, that all the respectable families, all the beauty, and alt the elegance of the County of Down, with many from the Counties of Derry and Donegal, and the Town of Belfast, appeared on that festive occasion, to whom the recollection of that happy evening will long afford the greatest pleasure. • tbefeoiiftW'" King's ' Bench; JUSge' Day charged I inadequacy of their funds and accommodations, tfcew to''' riwftjllftwing effect:— t; u" f*" f | j Gentleirer of both Grand Juries— I hold in my hand, a; Statute of the- last Session, intitled.

Lord Sidmouth's friends say, that whet her y Goevernment has, upon the whole, gained or lost b the returns, his party at least is increased by the ad- dition of four or five votes. Grand Juries, and which I'am commanded by the Lee- filature to s- ive in charge to you. The Act shali forthwith be laid before you : and you will, upon retiring to your Grand Jury rooms, appoirft a Committee from your respective bodies, not exceeding five, nor less than three, to carry the provisions of the Act into effect. Gentlemen, you are assembled here this dav to pssist this, the supreme Court of the latid, where the King himself, in contemplation of law, pre- sides, in administering criminal justice to your respective countifs. So it is in theory. But iri poin of fact your criminal duties are little more than nominal. There is nothing, it is trus, to prevent the Officers of the Crown from prefe t'ag bills of indictmen*- to the King's Bench Grand Juries ; and therefore it is that the common law Grand Jury oath continues to be administered to yon. But the great influx of civil business into this Court, leaves to us, in truth, but little leisure for the trial of, Crown cases; ,< ind recent experi- ence demonstrates how sparingly this high tri- bunal ought to be converted into a Court of Over and Terminer for the trial of offences, and the serious inconvenience to the numerous suitors, and to the Public at' large, which would neces- sarily residt from the familiarity of such a prac- tice. Bnt as the Grand Inquest of your respec- tive bailiwicks, there is nothing to dispense with the duty incumbent upon ycu, in common with every other Grand Jury, of presenting to the' Court all such, offences and nuisances of a public nature,- as you sh- jll discover. If you shall dis- cover any seditious societies, any seditious meet- ings, under whatever pretence they may assem- ble, any individual sowers of. Sedition; if you shall discover any houses, whether- public or pri- vate, the haunts of debauchery or disaffection ; any offender, in short, against religion, morality,' or the State ;— it will be your duty, without wait- f ing for further evidence, to prefer a presentment thereof to the Court, where it will be shaped by the proper officer into a fit indictment, and put into a course of trial. So, Gentlemen, in this your inquisitorial capa- city, there is no duty more imperative upon you, than that of visiting your prisons and all other places of confinement within your distrifts. I know this duty- is full of anxiety and suffering; the prison? a* e numerous, and in those abodes of misfortune and misery, you must expert to meet with cases which will interest and wound your better feelings. But, however painful in the exe- cution, you will find a full reward in reflefling, that by svich afls of mercy you will soften the sor- rows of the most unfortunate of your fellow- crea- tures. You will inquire into the state an ! condi- tion of the jails, and still more st> ialy - into the con'doffof t^ e jailor*, inspectors, medical gentle- men, and other officers attached to the prison fcstablishment; and you will provide- an ample store of necessaries for the prisoners, to meet the inclemency of the approaching season. Such Gentlemen, is a short sketch of your cri- minal duties. And, therefore, light indeed would be your labours, were they limited to your, crimi- nal or common- law jurisdiflion. But you are aware, that this is a presenting Term, in which the law authorizes and requires you to exercise your statutable jurisdiction of taxation, towards the construfli Vn arid repair of the hridges, roads, and othe^ public worts of yohr respective coun- ties This high trust, one of ( hp first and proudest of the Legislative funfUtins, which had originally been vested in the Magistracy, has, by a series of statutes, been transferred to the Grand Juries. Whether such transfer was wise or not; a transfer to an evanescent irresponsible body, afting upon a snbjeff of public and general concern, in the re- cesses of their own chamber, amidst the hurry and crowded dutie- of the Assizes, from a Bench of Magistrates afling in open and deliberate Session, controlled by the very publicity of their proceed- ings, and permanently responsible to this Court for the pure and conscientious discharge of thtir duty; this is a question upon which some enlight- ened men very widely differ. Bur certain it is that, however corruptly and oppressively exercised this important power has been, in many of our coun- ties, no course could be more successful in im- proving the habits, and promoting the civilization ( however imperfect) of our peasantry. The tax too, if heavy, is, however, expended in the county where it is taised, and for its improvement; like the genial dew ofheaven, which falls back upon, and refreshes the soil from which it is exhaled. Gentlemen, this power, so. precious in the dis- creet use of it, and so pernicious in its abuse, the Legislature has happily circumscribed . in the . County of Dublin, by sundry regulations of great wisdom ; regulations which I should wish to see extended to all Ireland. Among others vou pos- sess an effectual controul upon your treasurer. You are limited to a maximum of one shilling an acre in each of your half- yearly levies ; while every . other county is left to the unlimited and the un- merciful discretion of its Grand Juries. So also while every other county is stinted to the narrow limit of its Assizes for dispatching all its various duties— indictments, accounts, presentments, po- litics. You, Gentlemen, bo h of-, the City and County, have a whole Term for considering your presentments, and the whole of the socceeiing Term for discussing your accounts ; and there- fore, possessing, as you do, abundant leisure for striit and patiem investigation, it is impossible that any of your public money can be misapplied, as I long as Grand Juries, faithful to their duties, dis-! charge this high trust with the conscientious dili- ' gence and discretion which its importance con- 1 fessedly demands. Gentlemen of the County— Among the obje& s i which solicit your attention, I submit the Meath ' Hospital as one of the most prominent and mer- ito- j rious. Though kliown b- st under that denomina- ! tiop, as deriving much from the liberality of the j the relief of Patients, who flock in t » nOn th- Infir mary from all. quarters, a id praying fr^ m the county an increased presentment. Ths documents having been put into my hands only since my ar- rival, in Court. lam ro' yet aware of the gronnds on which this claim of relief rests, nor prepared of course to give the subjeft in charge to you hut you wijl not think if a mis- spent morninrr, to vi it the Infirmary, arid, upon the spot, to inform your- selves of its extensive wants, and limited m^ ans ; and thus, though present relief were beyond yopr power, something fnay occur for the future bene- fit and advancement of that exce lent ins- itution. Among the numerous dem? inds which « rowd upon both Grand Juries, it will, no doubt, be one of your first cares to provide liberally for the preat aoproaches to your Capital. Both the Citv aod County are alike interested in pre< ervmtr those in a state of perfeft repair. Bir, Gentlemen, it Is not merely a good carriage- way tha* is ne? e « sary on the^ e great avenues; corrrmid'ous footways also should be constrtifled in every direction fnm the Capital through your County. Let not the farmer, let not him who Days the tax, be tojd that his reasonable and just claims are overlooked by the Grand Juries while the com nrtu of the rich only are consulted; that while the convenience of carriages, horsemen, and geauy, is, studiously pro- vided for, the humble pedestrian is as s'udiouslv passed by, and left to woik his way throu > h all the mud and mire of wintry roads. 1 press this subjecJJ the more emphatically upon yotte at'oo. tion, because I cannot forget a cas°, in which the last presenting Grand Jury rejected a fo. i'- p » ? h presentment, between two ( bnpnious villages, uoon one of the widest and most freqitetVed avenues to the Capital, a road through which this ereit City draws a great portion of its prime and most ne- cessary supplies; In the Barony of Rx - bdown, too where a peculiar tax has been created for roads and foot- ways only— in short, upeo'the great B- ay road. Every such case, which '. hall co ne before you, will meet with a very different rec- ption ; you will feel it an imoerativfr appeal to y mr justice and your benevolence. If, in any stich castlje estimate be thought too high, 1, eft- another overseer be appointed, if you can fihd one. who wijl under- take the w rk upon lower te- ms; but let not the poor peasant, his wife and children, be denied this reasonable accommodation which he so anxiously solicits, and doomed by the Grand Jury to wa ie ancle- deep among the brutes of the creation ; let the poor peasant hive this decent easement anJ accommodation, even though half of our private avenues, lanes, and bye way , were la be post, poned. Gentlemen, by a discreet, disinterested, and be- nevolent conduit such as this; by your atteo> t- n to the Jails, the Infirmaries, the great hrgh- w iys and foot- ways within your district,, yo: i will a p. prove yourselves the worthy deposi- ari?. of this great trust. The humbler clas . es of tlie commu- nity, for whose benefit particularly this ve^ y se. rious burden has been created; will hail thr- fliand Juries as their benefaftors and guardians. They will understand, ihat./. be ( ng^ i", prders . ire alive to their wants and co: iit.> r:, s, and will ie3pe'l and reverence the laws, and the disoens^ rs of those la\ frs, whose beneficial influence they fee! and enjoy. A private letter frow the envifous of Mount Cau- casus conveys theft>! lowtatinteliiuren. CL-:-_ It.' J,, ls ^ ecn long known that the rio A^ abit ints and invalids of Russia used to frecjuetif the hot springs of Clttcssus and that they were in great repute. They suddenly d.' s* appeared in- the month of March last, and re- appeared in April upon'the ridge of the mountain, fmt in much greater quantity, and much hotter than before, but not a drop was to be found'in tile site occupied by the former buildings. Th • springs disappeared with- out any earthquake or other perceivable phenomenon. New bath. houjes have been hastily constructed where the sprinps now flow. Mr. Bra tide, the celebrated chemist, has determined, by a scries of accurate experiments, that the colouring matter of the blood is not dependent upon the presence of iron, as has been commonly received ; and has rendered it probable that it may prove more useful in the ai t of dyeing;, than has hitherto been imagined ; since neither the alkalies nor the acids, ( except the nitric,) have" much tendenty to alter its h^ ie. The readiness too, with which its stains are rerrtoved from substances to which the mordant has been seems to render it peculiarly fit for the calico printer. « Bv impregnating some pieces of woollen cloth with solution of niljrate of nfercurv ( lunai caustic,) or of corrosive sublime, and after! wards steeping them in a watery solntioh of the colour- ing matter of die blood, I succeeded ( says Mr ftrande) in giving them a permanent- red tinge, urtilterable by washing with s'oap; and by employing the1 a, wfionio,! solution of the colouring matter, calico < tnd linen niny be dyed with the same mordant." It is not. a liftlfe remarkable that blood is used by Ae Aimepian de s together with madder, in their finest and most durable' reds ; and that it has . ver been found a necessary J. dition to ensure- the permanency of th'e dolour. MELANCHOLY ACCIDENT. A most melancholy accident happened on the : 3d instant, at the mill of Dun flyer, n. ar Geyabby. A young man who happened to call at the mill, inc-' ft- floury laid his, hand on a chain then in act of taki. ur up a sack fi om the ground, and getting entangled* was ill danger of losing his life,, when his brother, ( the person who worked the mill) instantly flew * o his relief, which he happily effected ;' but, alas, by his generous exertion got entangled / limself, and, shocking to relate, was nearly torn to pieces I His left arm was taken off by the shoulder, and his whole body btuised and mangled in so shocking a m inner that no rational hopes can be entertained of h'is reco- very. What jidds to the melancholy catastrophe is, that the unfortunate young man was rnanied only Ja applied, the purposes of few days before the melancholy accident happened, should operate as a warning to all persons, to This be particularly cautious how they hieddl - with thing connected with' tlie nra'chinery of mills.
