On F> iMay morning Imr, about six o'clock, 9 fjpntleman arrived at the hotel at Falmouth, in * post- chaise. Imm diately on his ar'iva! he went ' o l, ed ; he rose ag . in at ten o'clock, and break- fasted-[ after which he went to the house nf the Cap ain of the Lisbon Packet, which was netr in the order of sailing, and paid tor his passagj to Lisbon ; hr> then returned to the hotel, and din- d with a pjrty of Gentlemen, who h^ d enfrap- r l for4 their passage to Lisbon in the same pact ) : ic dinner he drank nothing but ale. Af. r- r dinn? r h « went with the party to see a rev packet launch- ed ; he reuirns- d at dusk, and ordered a glass nf Hollands and water, and two sheets of writng- paper, to be brought into his parlour,. He went to bed - about ten o'clock, and next, morning, at half- pa- t ten, one of the chamber- m lids went to his room, in order to make the bed, Sec. and on opening the door, which had not been locked, she wis strUck with horror, on perceiving the unfor. funate man, with nothing on but his shirt, lying on the floor, which was covered with blood, and the bason by his side, almost filled with blood.— An ala- rn was given, and a surgeon immediate'y piocuredj bii^ the body was quite dead ; a razor lay by his side, with which die arteries of the left arpsi, at the bend of the elbow had been cut across in a dreadful manner, which- caused the deceased to bleed to death. On the table W H found a let- ter and note, of which the following are copies, Th.' letter was folded, but not sealed ; the notj was open:— " l~} h Almighty Lord gog, of infinite goodness and mercy pray forgive me my manifold sins and wickedness : ir has pleased thee to afflict me most grievously, and much heavier than I can possibly bear j being persecuted by a set of vile persons, whose only aim has been to ruin me and bring me to destruction. I forgive, and I hope they - will be forgiven at the day of judgement, O Lord have mercy upon me— have mercv upon me! my sufferings are so great, that at time I am delirious, my ideas wander I know not where ; those per- jured villains were determined to seek death, that their infamy might not come to light, and that they perjured themselves is as true as thou art in heaven*. I here ever forgive them ; Oh blessed Redeemer, look down with mercy upon me ; Oh Lord he pleased to pour down thy bleWture on my late worthy partners, who are so sore afficted, by improper conduct brought on by others, who have sought my ruin, and who I did all my poWer to serve. O God be pleased to forgive them as I do— and I hope they will profit by my untimely fate ! " Oh God, the thought of being made a bank- rupt and an outlaw has fixed my fate— these words have cut me to the very soul— outlaw I—. for every fellow to scoff at; oh, the thought is too much for me, although I ought to rejoice at being an outlaw, rather than exist in the same country with such men ; may the authors of that infamous combination meet their just fate, they are my persecutors, f God of mercy receive me into thy holy sanctuary ; my mind is so agi- tated, I cannot go forward or backward." " SIR—- My name is Robert Mitchell, of Bristol. I will thank you to send the trunks and money, about £ 160, to Messrs, Powells', of the said place, and 1et me have Christian buriaI, for I hav • been unjustly persecuted by a set of vile swindlers and perjurers You will take £ 20 for your trouble. You will think it strange [ should address you, having never seen you, but y are, I believe, Agent for the Commercial Room, bristol. " Mr. Hooton, " of this place, Falmouth. " Nine o'clock— I wish I was no more, and that the Almighty would take me into his holy keeping." A Coroner's Inquest sat on the body, and brought in a verdict insanity. • The words in Italics were interlined, f What follows was written with a pencil. A letter from- Madras states, that the following- melancholy spectacle was lately wi- nested iiiete :— « A young Gentoo widow, il) « ' 21 years of age, ee. me lo the Commading Officer, asking permis. s on to burn herself wiih her deceased husband ; hi used every argument to dissuade her fr m it, but in vain ; her family, even her own mother, aim- ed her for nesitarir. g, by going to the Comm mdio ™ Officer. They weie very poor, and did not prj. viae sufficient wood and oil : Wri t to rel.- re, the poor creature was heard repeated y to cry more fire! more fire " sna ihtit- k v. i egorn, until ' he noise o^ the instruments drowned i,. f cries."

WAR DEPARTMENT. ssa \ ' \ DOWNING- STREBT, NOV. 17. Dispatches of which the following- are extrafb, have been this day - eceived at Earl Bathurst's of. fice, addressed to his Lordship hy General the Marquis of Wellington, dated Crbecon, 26; h and 2S; h of Ofloher, Rueda, 31st of Oflober and 3d of November, 1812. Cabecon, 26th OA 1812. I have been so much occupied by the move, tnents and operations " f the army since the 18th inst. that I have not been able to write to your Lordship. The operations of the Castle of Burgos continu- ed nearly in the st ite in which thev were when I addressed your Lordrhip on the 11th inst. till the 18th. Having at that time received a supply of musket ammunition from Santander, and having, while waiting for that necessary article, completed a mine under the church of St. Roman, which stood in an outwork of the second line. I deter- mined that the breach which we had effe& ed in the second line should be stormed on that evening, at the moment this mine should erolode, and that at the same time the line should he attacked by escalade. The mine succeeded, and Lieutenant- Colonel Browne lodged a partv of the 9h Cacadores, and a detachment of Spanish troops of the regiment of A turias, in the outwork. A detachment of the Kind's German Legion, under Major Wurm, carried the breach, and a detachment o^ ihe Guards succeeded in escalading the line ; but the enemy brought such a fire unon these two last detach- ments, from the third line, and the body of the castle itself, and they were attacked by numbers, so superior, before they could receive the sapport allotted to them, that they were ob'iged to retire, suffering considerable loss. Majar Wormb was unfortunately kiWed, It is impossible to represent in adequate terms liiy sense of the conduct of the Guards and Ger- man Legion upon this occasion ; and I am quite satisfied, that if it had been possible to maintain the posts which they had gained with so much gallantry, these troops would have maintained them. Some of the men stormed even the third line, and one was kil'ed in one of the embrasures of that line ; and I had the satisfaction of seeing that if I could breach the wall of the Castle, we should carry the place. Another mine was . commenced under the se- cond line from the Church of St. Roman, of which we remained in possession. The enemy had on the 13th moved forward a considerable body of infantry, and six squadrons » of cavalry frcm Briviesca to reconnoitre our out- posts at Monasterio. They attacked the picquet at the bridge in front of that town, but were re- pulsed by the fire of a detachment of the infantry of the Brunswick Legion. In this affair, Lieut.- Colonel the Hon. Frederick Ponscnby, who com- manded at Monasterio, was wounded, but not se- verely, and I hope I shall soon again have the benefit of his assistance. I had long had reports of the enemy's inten- tion to advance for the relief of the castle of Bur- gos with the Army of Portugal, reinforced by troops recently arrived from France, and with that part of the army of the north which was dis- posable ; and they did advance m considerable force against the post at Monasterio on the even- ing of the ISth. The subaltern of the B unswick legion, who commanded a picquet in St. Olalla, disobeyed his orders in remaining in that village upon the approach of the enemy, and he was taken with his picquet. The enemy consequent- ly obtained possession of the heights which com- manded the town of Monasterio, and our outpost was obliged to retire on the morning of the 19th ' to the Burgos side of the town. I assembled the troops, expecting those neces- sary for carrying on the operations of the seige, as toon as it appeared by the enemy's movements of the 18th that they entered serious intentions of endeavouring to : tise it, and placed the allied army on the heights, having their right at Ibeas, on the Arlanson, the centre at Rio Vena and Magaradas, and the left at Sato Pallacio. The enemy's army likewise aesembled in the neigh- bourhood of Monasterio. They moved forv/ ard on the evening ctf the 20th, with about 10,000 men, to drive in our out- posts at Quintana Palla and Olmos. The former withdrew by order, but the latter was maintained with great spirit by the Chasseurs Britanniques. Seeing a fair oppor- tunity of striking a blow upon the enemy, 1 re- quested Lieutenant- Gen era! Sir E. Paget to move with the 1st and 5th divisions upon the enemy's right flank, which movement having been well executed, drove them back upon Monasterio, and our posts were replaced in Quintana Palla. On the morning of the 21st, I received a letter from Sir Rowland Hill, of the 17th, in which he acquainted me of the enemy's intention to move towards the Tagus, which was already fordable by individuals in many places, and was likely to become so by an army. The castle of Chir. cella had surrendered on the Sth instant. The enemy's force in Valencia was supposed to amount to not less than 70,000 men, a very large proportion of which, it was expefled, would be disposable for service out of that kingdom. I had desired Lietftenant- General Sir R. Hill to retire from his position on the Tagus, if he should find that he could not maintain himself in it with advantage ; and it was necessary that I should be near him, in order that the corps under my com- mand might not be insulated, in consequence of the movements which he should find himself under the necessity of making : I therefore raised the siege of Burgos on the night of the 20th, and moved the • whole army back towards the Douro. I felt severely the sacrifice I was thereby obliged to make. Your Lordship is aware that I w as never very sanguine in nay expefiations of success in the siege of Burgos, notwithstanding that I considered success was attainable, even with the means in my power, within a reasonable limited period. If she attack made on the first line on the 22J or 29th bad succeeded, I believe ' we should have taken the place, notwithstanding the ability with which the Governor conduced the defence, and the gallantry vith which it. was eKcuted bytheganiion. Our means were limited ; but it appeared to me, that if we should succeed, the advantage to the cause : j would be great, and the final success of the cam- J: paign would have been certain. I had every reason to be satisfied with the con- Ij Serjeants, dufl of the officers and troops during the siege of : Burgos, particul arlv with the brigade of Guards. During the latter part of the siege the weather was very unfavourable, and the troops suffered much from the rain. The officers at the head of the artillery and engineer departments— Lieut.- Col. Robe and Lieur.- Col. Burgoyne, and Lieut- Col. Dickson, who commands the reserve artillery, rendered me every assistance ; and the failure of suc- ess is not to be attributed to them. By their aftivity we carried off every thing in the course of the night, excepting the three 18- poundsss de- stroyed by the enemy's fire, and the eight pieces of cannon which we had taken from the enemy on the night of the 19th olt. in the storm of the horn- work. Having sent our cattle to meet the equip- ment expefled from Santander, we had not the means of moving the latter. The enemy was not aware of our movement, and did not follow us till late on the 22d, when 10,000 men encamped on this side of Burgos. The British army encamped at Celada del Ca. mino and Hornillos, with the light cavalry at Es- j tepan and Baniel. We continued our march on j the following day, the right of the army to Tor- quemada, the left to Cerdevilla; at which places we crossed the Pisuerga. The enemy followed our movement with t!# ir whole army. Our rear- guard consisted of two light battalions of the King's German Legion, un- der Colonel Halkett, and of Maior- General An- son's brigade of cavalry.; and M& jor- General Bock's brigade was halted at Venta del Pozo to give them support— the whole under the com- mand of Lieu tenant- General Sir Stapleton Cot- ton. Don Julian Sanchez marched on the left cf the Alanzon ; and the party of Guerillas, hereto- fore commanded by the late Martinez, on the hills on the left of our rear- guard. Major- General Anson's brigade charged twice with great success, in front ofCalada'del Camino, and the enemy was detained above three hours by the troops under Lieutenant- General Sir S. Cotton, in the passage of the Hormaza, in front of that village. * The rear guard continued to fall back in the best order, till the Guerillas on the left having been driven in, they rode towards the flank of the rear- guard of Major- General Anson's Brigade, and four or five squadrons of the enemy mixed with them. These were mistaken for Spaniards, and they fell upon the flank and rear of our troops. We sustained some loss, and Lieutenant- Colonel Pelly, of the 16th dragoons, having had his horse shot, was taken priso. ier. The delay occasioned by this misfortune ena- bled the enemy to bring up a very superior body of cavalry, which was charged by Major- General Bock's and Major- General Anson's brigade, near the Venta del Pozo, but unsuccessfully, and our rear- guard was hardly pressed. The enemy made theirfcharge on the two light battalions of the King's German Legion, formed in squares, but were always repulsed wiih considerable- loss hy the steadiness of these two battalions. They suf- fered no loss, aud I cannot sufficiently applaud ( heir condoft and that of Colonel Halkett who commanded them. Portuguese— oa. 15— t2th. Line— Captain White, se- verely.

Since 1 wrote to your Lordship upon the 26th, I have had an oppsrtunity of seeing the enemy's whole army, as they placed themselves opposite to us, on the Pisuerga, yesterday. They are certain- ly in very great strength. The army of Portu- gal has received a re- inforoement of 10,000 men, including cavalry, from France: and 1 have reason to believe, that there are ttoo divi-. sions of infantry now with this army belonging to the army of the norlh. The cavalry of the army of the north is certainly with the army of Portu- gal, and they have at least 5000 good cavalry. No event of importance has occurred since I addressed your Lordship on the 26tb. The enemy formed their ' array in the plain in our front yes- terday. They have cannonaded different parts of our line without doing us any injury, excepting that Lieutenant- Colonel Robe, of the Royal Ar- tillery, was wounded severely, but not dangerous- ly, yesterday. » KRIVEO. 1 MAILS SINCE OTTR LAST. NNE BV OON AGRA BEE 1 By. DUBLIN 0 BELFAST, Monday, November 25, 1812. The exertions and conduft of Lieut. General Sir S. G0; on and ihe Officers and Staff attached to him thr « ugh" lit this day were highly merito. rious, and although the charge made by the ca- valry was not successful, I hid the satisfaction of observing great steadiness in their mo laments. Major Ball's troop of Horse Artillery, under Ma- jor Downmaa and Captain Ramsay, distinguished themselves. The army continued its march on the 21th, and took up its ground on the Carrion, with its right at Duenas and its left at Villa Moriel, and the 1st battalion, 1st Guards, joined us from Co- runna. I halted here on the 25th, and the enemy at- tacked our left at Villa Moriel. They were re- pulsed, however, by the ath division of infantry, under the command of Major- General Oswald, in the absence of Lieut.- General Leith, on account of indisposition. I had diretfed the Sd battalion of the Royals to march to Palencia, to, proteil the destruction of the bridges over the Carrion at that place ; but it appears the enemy assembled in such force at that point, that Lieut - Colonel Campbell thought it necessary to retire upon Villa Moriel, and the enemy passed the Carrion at Palencia. This ren- dered it necessary to change our front, and I di- refled Major- General Oswald to throw back our left, and the Spanish troops upon the heights, and j to maintain the Carrion with the right of the 5th j division. The bridge of Villa Mnrlet was de- stroyed ; but the enemy discovered a ford, and passed over a considerable body of infantry and cavalry. I made Major- General Pringle and Major- General Barnes attack these troops under the orders of Major- Ge . eral Oswald, in, which attack the Spanish troops co- operated, and they were driven across the river with considerable loss. The fire upon the left had been very svere throughout the day, from which we suffered a great deal; and Major- Gen. Don Miguel Alava was unfortunately wounded while urging on the Spanish infantry in'the pursuit of the enemy. I broke up this morning from the Carrion, and marched upon Cabe^ on del Caropo, where I have crossed the Pisuerga. The enemy appear to be moving in this direc- tion from Duenas. I propose to halt here to- morrow. P. S— I have the honour to inclose Returns of the killed and wounded. Return of Killed and Wounded of the Army under the Mar- quis of Wellington, K.

The enemy crossed the Carrion on the 2Cth and 27th, and formed their army on the heights near Cijales, on the last of those days, opposite our position on the left, of the Pisuerga, and their advanced guard about two miles in front of their main body, and half that distance from Cabej- m. On the 28th they extended their right, and en- deavoured to force the bridges of Simancas and Valladolid, the former of which was defended by Colonel Halltetr, with his brigade of the 7th divi- sion, and the latter by Lieutenant- General the Earl of Dalhootue, with ' he remainder of the 7th division. At lenytji, C^ ouei ISalkett, being hard pressed, blew up the bridge. He at the same time detached the Brunswick Oels* regiment to Torde- lillai, towards which quarter the enemy detached troops on the evening of the 28: b. As soon as I found that this was the case, I thought it proper to break up from the Pisuerga, and to cross the Douro, which objedl was effeftcd without difficul- ty, on the 29' h inst. by the bridges of Fuente Douro and Tudela. The bridge of Tordesillas was destroyed on the enemy's appioach to that town, on the evening of the 28th, and I had sect orders to the regiment of Brunswick Oels' to take post, on its ruins, in such mnaner as to prevent the enemy from repair- ing the bridge. I had the mortification, however, - of learning, on the night of ihe 29 h, that this re- giment had been obliged to abandon its post, and as I had seen the enemy's whole army in march towards Tordesillas on thit evening, it was obvi- ous that no time was to be lost. I therefore march- ed the army at an early hour yesterday morning to their left, and posted the troops on the heights between Reeda and Tordesillas, immediately op- posite, and near the bridge of Tordesilias. We round the bridge nearly repaired on our arrival, but the anemy had made no attempt to pass it, and they have now no large assembly of troops in this neighbourhood. I learn that some of them marched last night towards Valladolid, and others towards Toro. I have received letters from Lieut.- Gen. Sir R. Hill, of the 29th. The Tagus was every whdre fordable, and the enemy had passed a small body of troops over at Fuente Duenas. Sir R. Hill had colle& ed his troops on the Jaca. mab. He was likely to receive my orders to move upon Anvalo on the 29th. Rueda, November 3. I take the opportunity of the return of the mes- senger Myers to Corupna. ' o inform you that rhe army have continued in the position in which I placed them on the : 40th of Oiflober; and the enemy have made no attempt to pass the Douro. The bridge of Tordesillas is repaired, and they are employed in the repair of that of Toro. Their troops are extended aio/ ig the Douro, from the laiter place to Valladoikl. In the mean time, the troops under Lieut.- Gen. Sir R. Hill will arrive this day and to- morrow on the Adaja. The General received my orders to break up from his position on the Jacamah on the 29th, and he intended to carry them into execu- tion on the morning of the 80th. He had in- tended to destroy the Puente Larga, but the mine failed ; and the enemy having collected a large body of troops between the bridge and Aranjeuz, they immediately attacked ou- post on the bridge, but were repulsed with considerable, loss by the 2d ibattalioa 47th regiment, and a detachment of j the 95ih, under the command of Colonel Skerret. I have not received the return of our loss upon \ this occasion, but J. understand it is about 40 [ men. No officer was touched. Lieutenant- Gen. Sir R. Hill mentions in high terms the conduct | of the troops. These circumstances delayed the S anarch from the right of Lieiitenant- General Sir i R. Hill's position till the evening of the 30th, and ji he has since continued it without being at ;. ll mo- lested by the enemy. . The building called La China, in the Retiro, and all the guns, stores, & c. which that work contained, which had not been carried away, were destroyed before the troops were withdrawn from Madrid. The Spanish divisions of Don Carlos d'Es- pana and Counte da Petine Viiiemur are with Lieut.- Generai Sir R. Hill.

REPORTED GRFAT VICTORY OVER THE FRENCH. A Gottenburgh MaiLrftrrjved this morning, and accounts from Carlsham of the 11th, and of the j 7th from Riga, were received at Gottenburgh on the 15th, stating, lhat General Essen had received official accounts of a C. REAT BATTLE between Mos- cow and Smolensk, the result of which was THAT • FIFTEEN THOUSAND FRENCH LAID DOWN THEIR ARMS. This report thsre is reason to hope to be frne, from the las: we have heard of the positions of the armies, but we do not believe that any thing official has reached Government on the iubjeft. General Kutusoff informed Us in the preceding accounts tjhat, he had. detached. Ganeral Platow to- wards Smolensk, with fifteen regiments af cavalry; and we know that Tormazow joined by Tchecha- goff and the Moldavian army was expeffed to reach Minsk on the 21 st O& ober. They would, reach Smolensk about the same time. Kutusoff would follow wiih the main army;- Our readers remarked, in the French Papers Vfe, received yesterday, that there was no intelligence from the French armies dtre$.— rib accounts but from Mittau, throtigh Wilna to Warsaw, the only road that seems to remain open— the rest appear to be cut off. We repeat, therefore, that we believe the ac- counts of - this great aiftory over the French. A battle was inevitjble. Frofn the French accounts we know that their cavalry was in a wretched state — and from the Russisn dispatches we know also, that the roads and the weather were uncommonly bad. The Russian cavalry, from being well fo. raged, and a part newly arrived, Wers : n high order. Part of the Russian fleet is uo'. v, we believe* off our coast, and the rest may be expefled in a few days. General Kutusoff gives an account of a very gallant achievement of General Dorochow in storming the town and entrenchment of Vereya on the Protra, south of Mojaisk, and just before our paper was put to press, we received the following Bulletin, announcing a fresh vidfory of General Steinheil. SECOND EDITION. Courier - Office, Three o'Cloch A dispatch has been received from Lord Cath- cart, dated Petersburgh, 1st November. He in-, closes the Bulletin of the aflion, 18th Oftober, which are under translation. Also reports from General Steinheil and Count Wittgenstein. The former in his pursuit of the j enemy had taken 40 waggons, 22 standards of the Bavarian regiments, 800 ducats of the military chests, 7 officers, and made 100 prisoners, on the 25th OtSober; and on the 26th, he took from the enemy 7 pieces of artillery, and made 7 officers and 150 prisoners, besides those taken in Various rencontres of rear- guard, wherein the enemy had much suffered. Count Wittgenstein reports, that by the opera, tion of General Steinheil, the Bavarian corps was separated from that cf General St. Cyr,— he him- self in the pursuit had taken 80 prisoners and ten tumbrils. He found 300 horses killed on the road, and some timber, the cannon belonging to which he supposes were buried'in the marshes The enemy had retired to repelle. He adds, that St. Cyr's corps is so weakened, that it is impos- sible for him to attack again till he is considerably reinforced. ' General Steinheil dates from Konbliche on the 20th of Oflober, and Count Wittgenstein, on the same day, from Outchatchi. Lord Cathcart states, that nothing of trwmerft had been reported from the Grand Army. The French were in the utmost want of provi- visins and forage, and the Russians were greatly superior in the number and vigour of their cavalry. The French left several thousands sick in Mos. cow, in the mo » t miserable s tate. A further volunteering from the British militia is expected to take place soon after the meeting I of Parliament, as the only means of Augmenting | our army in Spain. It is understood temporary ( rank will be given to such officers as extend their services, in the proportion of one Captain and one " I Lieutenant to every 100 men, and permr. nent rank { to an Ensign ; and on a reduction they will be > entitled to half- pay accordingly. DINNER TO GENERAL STEWART. On Friday last, a grand Dinner was given in the Exchange Rooms, to General S ewaru. by the prncjoal Inhabitants of Belfast, to mark the high admiration entertained of his gallant conduct in the Peninsula. About 200 sat down to as elegant a, dinner as ever was served up, at which the Mar- quis of D mega!) presided, supported by the Sove. reign, Mr. Verner, as coupier. When the cloth was removed, the Noble Chair- man gave The K: ng— which wss drank with three times three, as were many of the following: The P- ince Regent. The Queen and Royal Family. The Marquis of D nsgall, af er some h< ind , ome compliments, gave The don, Major- Gen. Charles Stewart— which was drank with the most rapturous appiatrse. The General, in returning thanks, s. ti', 1 it had been his peculiar lot, in the course of his life, ro be placed in many trying and embarrassing sitn?. tions— in many perilous ones— but he never felt so much difficulty and embarrassment as on the pre* sent occasion. When he looked around rj saw the respeflabilitv of rhe assembly, he felr that his humble deserts had been far over. rated. He had he said, only done his dutv as an Irish S 1 ! i<> He h ad early commenced his military career un- der tljat excellent General Sir- Ralph Abercromby; be afterwards afled under the evert ' be lammted Sir John Moore, and latterly had the honour to possess the full confidence, a^ d be in habits of the striflest intimacy with the gallant Hero who now leads our armies in the Peninsula. Was it any thing to say, that under such men he merely did his duty! — If any thing could add to the heartfelt gratifi- cation, and transporting enjo'ions, which the oc. casion exci- ed, it v- as that his venerable father, perhaps the be- st of fathers, was then a witness r. f the distinguished and triumphant honours, confer- red on him by the kindness of those around him j - for he would leave it to ibem to judge, as fathers and as sons, what his feelings mu . t be, in reeeivirsg- so distinguished a mark of the approbation of such a town as Belfast— and what his parenis'- feslin-' s^ iti witnessing the honours conferred, on his son. H » bad that'day been honoured with the freedom cf the Corporation of Belfastj in short, he acknow - ledged this as the proudest hour of his exigence. And when he returned to the army,' which won!! be in few days, he trusted his future conduct would prove him not unworthy of the honours they had that day conferred on him. The gallant General sat down amidst repeated applause. When it bad subsided, he again rose, and proposed the health of' The Marquis of Donegal!. Upon which his Lordship returned thank. D't\ e of York, and the 4\ rmy. Duke of Clarence, and the Navy. Ear! » f Londonderry, and Iflng mayhe'hYe to witosisthe triumph of his son. His Lordship in a short Address returned thanks.

Ferdinand VII. and may the efforts of his subjetSls secure his rights and their independence. The Glorious Memory. „ Alexander Stewart, Esq. of Ardn. Mr, Stewart returned thanks. General Stewart then begged leave to depart a little from the line'of toasts, and as the Ladies should not " be forgotten, gave The Marchioness of DonegalL The Marquis of Donegall then gave The 18th! Httssats, and may they ever be led as they were en the plains of Benevento. Gen. Stewart returned thanks, and proposed— The health of Colonel Coulson, Mr. Harvey. Mr. Hous- ton, and the other Gentlemen who conducted the entertain- ment of the evening, which, in point of- elegance ant} ar- rangement, exceeded any thing he had seen. Col. Coplson sai. hjbe was happy in expressing his sentiments on the occasion. The meeting had nothing of politics for its objefl, for he was confi- . dent he spoke the sentiments of all who heard him, in saying, that it was solely meant as a tribute of approbation from the town of Belfast to General Stewart, for his eminent services as a gallant Irish Soldier, and the very high sense they entertained of his charafteras a Gentleman. A great mafty other loyal and1 pppropriate toasts were drank, and the company, highly de- lighted with the entertainment, did not separate till a late hour on Saturday morning. In the course of the evening, Mr. Turpin of the Theatre, and other gentlemen, diversified the entertainment with excellent songs. - Several elegant iransparencies decorat'd . the room, and the entrance and stair- case were taste- fully illuminated with variegated lamps. The transparencies were principally painted by Mr. Poole, and executed by that attist in a clear and masterly . manner, viz.— The King's bu » t at the head of the room ; over one of the doors was the Prince Regent's Plume, and the Arms of the Londonderry Family over the other. The most particularly brilliant, however, were over the fire, places, where was a well executed bust of General Stewart, with an emb'ematic figure of Hibernia, and a distant view of a Fort afid Camp, and a figure of Viftory, The other was a fine tran- sparency of Lord Wellington on horseback, with a distant view of the British at the charge with the bayonet, routing the enquiy. On the stair- case window was a good transpa* rencyof the trophies of war, which having btun brilliantly illuminated, produced an excellent $ rts fefl. Saturday arrived at Portsmouth, the Salcette frig- ate. Captain Hope, from the Archipelago, bringing home Sir Wm. Otiseley, brother of his Excellency Sir G^ re Oaseley, Bart. Ambassador at the Court of Persia, with dispatches of consi- derable importance from the Persian Court. Sir William Ouseley embarked on board the Salcette - at Smyrna. He landed with his dispatches rtn Saturday afternoon, and proceeded to London.— The Salcette has brought several fine horses and packages of valuable presents from the King of Persia to the Prince Regent. Friday she captur- ed, off the Isle of Wight, the French privateer Mercure, which arrived wrh her. A child, who lately bepan to learn to read, in the Charity School at Greenford, was, among other words spelling M, I, L, K, which he could not immediately put together to say what they spelt, • when the master said, " Well, Sir, what does M, T, L, K, spell ?" The boy still hesirating, the Blaster again said, " Why, what does your mother put in her tea ?" The boy answered, " Rum, Sir."

STANZAS, ON THE LOSS OF HIS MAJESTY'S SHIP LA GUERRIERE. BY JOHI* MITFORD, ESQ. K. X. What! shall despair usurp the soil! ?— Shall Britons stoop to coward fear, Because the whelming billow's roll, Sweeps o'rr the wreck of LA GutRsisRt ? Undauntedly our warriors fought! Uncenquer'd by the foe they fell! And proud shall rise the indignant thenght, Warm from their comrades' fun'ral knell! Disasters, spurning human power, For once reversed the tide of war i O'er Britain's flat; plac'd one short hour, Columbia's sickly lambent star. The star that shone o'er faftious pride, Threugh Boston's streets lit Murder's way- Sank linderneath the crimson'd tide, Ner triumph'd in the blaze of day. Though valour in each foeman glow'd. And vengeance from each sabre gleam'd— Though fate on every billow rode, And death fire from the cannon stream'd: Though round the gallant vessel's wreck, The heaven- wing'd tempest pour'd amain, And, stretch'd upon the gory deck, My friends, my brethren, all were slain! Yes! let distress descend severe, Though England's noblest sons were kill'd' And, though the cries assail'd mine ear— The vessel sinks! her hold is fill'd 1 Yet, from my lips should ne'er be heard Sounds that forbode dishonour's grave. Damn'd be the wretch dar'd breathe the word, To strike the Flag that rules the wave! Let all the deaths that man e'er died, Close dreadful round my horreat brow"; And though my brother's heart's blood dy'd The decks, with all the gallant crew ; I would not have one thought of Peace— Nor yield to equal force the sway. Strike Britain's Flag— the confl:& cease, Give England's ocean reign away! The staff that bears my country's pride, My hand— my heart should never yield; But, sinking underneath the tide, I'd bear it glorious from the field. I'd bear it to a better world, Where those who fell in Freedom's cause, Shall see the British cross unfurl'd, Above the teach of humm laws. Yet, is not this a frenzied thought ? For ' tis humanity to save Those who > o nobly Med and fought, From da k Despair's nntime'j arave. But I do hare a dastar 1 foe, The slaves of ienorance and pride ; And many a gallant heart, I know, Would, rather than have yielded, died. Praise, perhaps due, let others giv-, Though all applaud, yet will not I, Tor surely ' tis a crime to live, When England's glory bids us die ! ARMAGH PROTESTANT MEETING. The following letters, on the subject of t'ie above Meeting, have lately passed between the Rev. JAMES MOREWOOTI, of Lambeg, and the Rev. Doctor BYRNE, P. P. Armagh :— To the Rev. Dr. BYRNE, Armagh. REVEREND SIR— In perusing one of the Belfast Papers t « - dav, in which the proceedings of the Armagh Protestant Meeting were detailed, I was shocked and indignant at observing, that a Gen- tleman of your profession and respectabilitv had j been treated by any of my Reverend Brethren j with ought that bordered on ill- temper or inde- ! corum. A difference of opinion, however great ; that difference, should never indues us to violate the exalted maxims of charity, and that Divine rule of doing to others as we would be done hy ourselves. I therefore embrace this opportunity of letting you see, that a!! Church of England Clergymen are not intolerant— that there are some ( of which number, I boast to be one) who feel for their Catholic Brethren, such sentiments as Christians should ever feel for each other; and • who are not deterred from expressing those sen- timents, by any paltry considerations— by any interested views.— It is absurd, Sir, to talk of the Established Church being endangered by Catholic Emancipation; it is in far greater danger from Protestant Intolerance.— I feel assured, that where- ever those of your persuasion are inimical towards us, we are as much in fault as they. Gratitude is not confined to the breast of a Protestant— the Catholic is no less incited by its generous impulse. I speak thus from personal experience. During six years I resided in a Parish principally com- posed of Rofiian Catholics, I uniformly found them peaceable, industrious, affectionate, and obliging. I treated them as my equals, as en- titled to be such, by the law of God, by justice, and by common sense; and they regarded me as their friend. And so they would regard every Minister of our Establishment, who would not wantonly provoke them ; who would condescend to consider them in the light of fellow- christians; as created by the same God, and redeemed by the same Saviour— But when, instead of thus acting, we persecute and insult them— when we cherish the remembrar. ee of ancient feuds— when we petition the Legislature not to disannul those penal laws, those disqualifying statutes, by which they are excluded from the privileges of citizens when, I say, such things are done, can we be surprised that they should feel indignant towards us :— If they did not, they must be made of strange materials, widely different from those which constitute a Protestant: for he, if trampled on, will turn ; if insulted, will rebel. And why should not a Catholic do the same ? They are hoth formed with the same passions, both acted J on by the same causes : for, what the ignorant { foolishly attribute to Religious dogmas, the Phi- losopher more rationally ascribes to human na- ture, which is similar in its operations on Pro- testant and Catholic.— I do, therefore, most sin- cerely wish, that my Protestant Brethren at large, would try the effect of conciliatory measures, in- stead of deputing the wretched hirelings of their ill- judged policy, to scour through the Country with Anti- Catholic petitions. Yes, I blush to say it, that even the Sabbath is a witness of Protestant Intolerance. On that day, when all party spirit should be lulled to rest— when Christians, of eve- ry denomination, laying aside the petty cares and interests of this world, should be solely occupied in praising their Maker and preparing for eternity — even on that sacred day, numbers are employed in resorting to our Churches, not. to perform the duties of religion— not to practice charity and peace— but to sow discord between man and man, by besetting our congregations to procure their signatures to Anti- Catholic petitions!!!— O shameful profanation of God's peculiar day ?— 0 dreadful outrage on his polluted terrfple ? Such infamous conduct, such bare- faced impiety, cannot fail to draw down upon our devoted heads the Vengeance of the Almighty.— Do not ima- gine, Sir, that what I have said is mere unsup- ported assertion. I witnessed the fact at my own Cnurch ; and being told, by my Sexton, that an application was to be made to me, after Divine Service, to sign their paper, I desired him to tell those agents of intolerance, that I had already signed the Catholic petition, and that, rather than put my signature to a counter- petition, I would cut off my right hand. After this reply, they did not think proper to trouble me upon the sub- ject ; had they done so, I would have given them my opinion respecting such proceedings— pro- ceedings, pregnant with the worst of consequen- ces.— Let me then, Sir, intreat you not to sup- pose, that every Clergyman of my persuasion is necessarily intolerant. I trust in God there are numbers of a contrary: description; though, I be- lieve, there are few ( if any) who have espoused the coble cause of Catholic Emancipation so warmly and consistently as I have done— For ten years I have been a Pastor in the Protestant Church, and never once during that period, did 1 cease to be an advocate for my Catholic fellow- christians. Uninfluenced by sinister considera- tions, undaunted by interested views, I never shrunk back from asserting their right to an equal participation in the privileges of our Constitution. The narrow minded and the cunning, may have pronounced my conduct impolitic and rash ; and let them still pronounce it such. I wish not for their commendation: I prefer their censure. To me, their applause would be disgusting ; tludr praises, sickening. Secure in the approbation of my own mind, and in that of every liberal and dispassionate man, I regard not the sneers of the prejudiced multitude : or if consider them at all, it is as strong testimonials to the rectitude of my intentions, and the independence of my principles — which I hope and feel persuaded, will never be warped by interested views. A few more words and I have done. On- bei^ interrogated at the Armagh Meeting, " whether you had not. great influence over your parishion- ers," you answered, that " < wrji clergyman who faithfully dres bis duty, will have an influence. And, Sir, you answered justly. The clergyman who does his duty, should have an influence; and whenever we Protestant clergy have it not, the fault is our own. If we take no trouble concern- ing the souls of those entrusted to our care, it is not surprising that our influence should be weak. But if we do really and sincerely attend to our flocks, they will, in return, attend to us. And that every clergyman, of eveiy denomination, ' should assiduously discharge the funftions of his office, will not, I hope, be contravened by any Protestant Divine. I have now laid my sentiments before you ; j and as they are sentiments in which I glory, and • which, so help me God, I never will renounce, j you are at full hbeny to give them what publicity j you please. I remain, Sir, with the greatest respeff, your very obedient servant, Lambeg, Nov. 11. JAMES MOREWOOP. To the Rev. JAMES MOREIVOOD, Rcetor of Lambeg, Lisburn. REVERENP AND DEAR SIR— I have had the honour of your truly liberal and invaluable com- munication of the 11th inst,; it teems in every line with the mild milk of human nature, philan- thropy, and goadness. Not having the pleasure of your acquaintance, being an utter stranger, renders this kindness still ( if possible) more pre- cious; bottomed solely, as it is, on the broad basis of rational and discriminating conviflion. From this candid and Christian specimen of your senti- ments, I am fully persuaded, dear Sir, that your sacred ministry must necessarily reflect great honour on the order to which you belong, and contribute in no small degree to propagate, and confirm among Christians, of all denominations, those heavenly maxims of the Gospel—" Glory to God in the highest; and on earth, peace to men of good will." A Pastor of this divine cast, is a special blessing from the Almighty ; superior to the prejudices and sneers of the uplettered mul- titude, not to be warped by interested views— redfitude of intention, independence of . principle. Behold " an Israelite," indeed, " in whom there is no guile." Happy ! had all Churchmen been even gifted with such rare qualities— such benevo- lent and charitable dispositions. Alas! even in this advanced age of reason and Christianity, the flagrant want of charity in a late debate ( charity, the chief bond of the Christian dispensation), has brought forth your unbiassed and evangelical cen- censure against a towering bi other. Indeed, Sir, the Newspaper you mention, con- tains but a very imperfect sketch ot the late Ar- magh Protestant Meeiing; particularly of the Venerable Worthy's speech. Undoubtedly, he appeared necessarily intolerant in contradistindfion ( I readily believe) to the genuine tiochine of his Church ; and diametrically opposite to the su- blime principles you, Sir, are not afraid, or asham- ed to so nobiy adv. caie. Iiowtver, that you do not stand alone in this glorious career, should af- fordj methinks, great consolation to all true Pro- you are sti- ported by the advocacy of the mast enlightened men in the whole British EnVbTre. In tru'h, that the Clergy of the Es ablished Church should f- el ereat concern, in the event of I datho'ic Emancipation, to have their livings per- manently secured—' his is fail,—- his is as it ought to j be— unquestionably just. But any danger they ; may apptehend from u « , is already, in mv m'nd, j amply, and solemnly, and constitutionally done away, by our oath of allegiance ; if ttiey toil! be- lieve us on oath, and if not, ' he absurdity ! to ad. mit us to anv, the least participation, of civil or political rights; however, we are aftnally admit- ted ( by law) to the vestibule of the sanftuary ; and virtue is progressive and not stationary. To throw us into the back ground of the penal code, wi hout delinquency on our nart ; no— nature, reason, and religion sicken at the very thought. Now, certainly, if I know my own heart, ( tried like gold in the furnace) if I have such influence over the minds of mv flock as is supposed, I so- lemnly declare that the Catholic wants only to be mily, effectually servicable to the state, by it qua- lifying him to make splendid use of those powers and faculties with which G^ d and nature has so eminently endowed him. Grant him the praver of his petition, and if he be found, experimentally, light in the scale of loyaltv, patriotism, and affec- tionate attachment to the Government of his c nri- $ try, why ! away with htm to the Gallies, to Siberia, : f or a worse place. Thosepledges I poor Roman Catholic clergv ! you have been always looked on iti your own coun-' try with a jaundiced eye; your fair value has not been truly appreciated ; for let any one read the declaration of the Catho'ies of Ireland, dated Dublin, 17th March, 1792. Let any pers > n of common sense and religion, consider the present complex oath . J of allegiance; Dogmatical, Catechetical and Peni- tential ; those hard terms I will not now wait to specially apply, and compare it in all its bearings, with that proposed by King James 1st, ( 1606) to the Catholics of England, or with that of King William and Qtieen Mary, as follows : " I, A. B. " do sincerely promise and swear that I will be " faithful, and bear true allegiance to their Ma- " jesties King William and Queen Mary, so help " me God." But the real jet and import of our present oath of allegiance is not sufficiently ad- verted to, I presume in charity, by the iotolerants of the day ; and for Papal inSuence, I humbly re- fer them ( en passan) to the illustrious Bossuets, the Demarcas, the Themossines, the Natalis Alex- anders, < xc. & c. of our communion. To the de- claration of the Galilean Church, 1682. In a word, Sir, the penal statutes are now en- forced against Christians, whose only crime is, that they believe what their reason conceives to be true, and revere what their conscience ( ells them is divine. They were enafled against men, for what they thought praiper, the faith of their fa- thers, by men who professed, that to believe, in religious matter*, what eaci? man thinks right, is the privdege of nature, reas-'- n, and religion i; seif. One word more, and I have done, Sir. The venerable and perilous case of the Pope and iwo thousand Popish Priests, celebataires, without any pledges of attachment to the State, neither wife or !• child. is an intemperate declaration, addressed to the vulgar, whom he convinces of ourlundue in- fluence, by misrepresenting us; and of our dis- loyalty, by insulting us ; his proofs are his own assertions, his evidence ihe coarseness of his abuse. May his liberality condescend to gain our good- will ! May his learning stoop down to convince our reason. " A hideous figure of their foes they draw, " Nor lines, nor looks, nor shades, nor colours true, " And this grotesque design expose to public view, " And yet the daubing pleases!

A Singular mode of discovering Irishmen.— Some years ago a number of facetious gentlemen emi- grated from the province of Ulster to Philadel- phia. On their arrival in that city they perambu- lated the streets, admiring the regularity of the buildings, but astonished that they had not met a single Irishman during the whole of their pere- grination. In the evening, when over a* social bottle, they had naturally expressed to each other their surprise and disappointment on the occasion ; John Simpson, of Linen- Hill, Esq. a man possess, ed of infinite natural humour, undertook to disco- ver his countrymen, if they were. Hot involved in everlasting sleep. With a basket over his arm, he sallied forth into the street, and with a well toned tenor voice, he began to cry out in musical recira- tivo, " Fine Oysters, Carlingjord Oysters." Roused and astonished at the well- known sounds, every emigrant fiom Dtindalk, Newry, Armagh, Lnr- gan, Richhill, and Portadown, in short, every Hi- bernian that had enjoyed the flavour of that deli- cious fish, surrounded him in less than twenty minutes. Delighted with the fertility of his inven- tian, about two hundred of them accompanied him to his lodging, and though there were neither Car- ling ford oysters, nor Dublin. Buy herrings there, they spent the evening in social converse, and in ponr- ing forth due libations to the welfare of their com- mon parent, Old Ireland. A tradesman in Stafford tendered his account a few days ago, in which was the following curious item : Considering the job, his charge is certainly moderate : To hanging wickets and myself, seven hours, 5s. 6d. .'" Much attention has been excited at Norwich by the singular circumstance of a drummer, in the. South Lin- coln Militia, having preached to very crowded con- gregations at the Caivert- nreet Chapel, in that city. tin appeared in the pulpit in his military garl » . FXTRAORPINARY CURE Dr. Ribes Ins reWt. ed a case inserted in " Memoires de la Socicete iPErn » ulgtion," of a man who received a severe wound in the head, « hich divided the integuments, the' temporal fi!! am » nts of ner » e « , the anterior auricu- lar muscle, a part of the crotnphite the orbicularis Deripebramm, the occipite frontalis and the su- perieliary artery ; all these'parts had fall n down, a. d were ly'ng over the cheek, exposing to view a portion of the anterior region of the cranium, and the superior part of the o- hit ; so that ihe globe of the eye could be distir. cllv seen, and even the movements of the brain. The sides of thrs enormous wound were brought eraftly into con. ' aff, and retained by strips of adhesive plaister, strongly agglutinated, and the patient was com- pletely cured in the short space of six weeks, With- out a" y unpleasant symptoms arising, and even without fever or suppuration taking place. The superior eye- lid, however, the levator muscle hav, ing been divided, remained immoveable, and the eye itself, without having been displaced or wound- ed, had lost thepowerof vision. M. Ribes attributes rhe loss of sight to the injury of the frontal nerve, with which the eye sympatizd by inean- s of the nas- 1 nerve. Foundling Hospital at Moscow This cele- brated Hospital, the steward of which, as Lord Carhcart states in his recent dispatch, was " ths most eminent Public Functionary found in the city," by the G ' llic incendiaries, was the noblest and most complete institution of the kio. d in Eu- rope— It was founded by the renowned Empress Catherine in 176- 1-; an immense pile of buildings of a quadrangular shape, and calculated to con. tain and accommodate 8000 foiindiirgs. The utmost privacy and freedom prevailed in this institution : candles were placed during the night in nitches in different parts of the building • these the infants were secretly deposited, and the , hells rung ; the bringers immediately retired, arid the children were speedily taken into the house. It was also at the option of mothers to come and he delivered privately in the house ; no questions were ever asked, and every propsr e re and atten- tion was paid to her; the infant was left, and con- sidered as the child of the State. Those wen- taken the greatest care of, and at the zge of ! 4, they had the liberty of choosing any particular branch of trade, and, for this purpose, different species of manufactures were established in tbj hospital. When they had gone through a cer- tain - apprenticeship, or about the age of 20, they were allowed the liberty of setting up for them, selves, a sum of money was bestowed upon each foundling for that purpose, and they were per- mitted to carry on trad? in any part of the Rus sian Empire— no very inconsiderable privilege in a country where the peasants are slaves, and can. not leave their villages without the permission of their masters. This admirable and incalculably useful institution, was in a great degree support- ad by voluntary contributions, legacies, & c. to encourage which, the Empress granted to all benefactors, some valuable privileges in proper, tion to the extent of their liberality: and a private merchant, named Dimidorf, expended on this in. stitution a sum amounting to nearly .-€ 200,000. A true Story of a Ghost, and Conjugal Fidelity, — Mr. Samuel Fisher, the inventor of the golden snuff, was acquainted with a widow lady of excel, lent character, who resided in Cork : This lu- iy was inconsolable for the death of her husband : the clay was spent by her in sighs and incessai t lamentations, and her pillow at night was mois- tened with the tears of her sorrow. Her husband — her dear husband, was the continual theme of her discourse, and she seemed to live for no other object, but to recite his praises, and deplore his loss. One morning, her friend Fisher found her in a state of mental agitation bordering on dis- traction. Her departed love, she said, had ap- peared to her in the night, and peremptorily or. dered her to enter the vauit where his remains were deposited, and have the coffin opened. Mr. Fisher remonstrated with her on the absurdity of this idea :— he said, that the intensity of her sor- row had impaired her intellect; that the phantom was the mere creature of her imagination, and begged of her at least to postpone to some future period her intended visit to the corps of her hus. band. The lady acquiesced for that time in his request; but the two succeeding mornings, the angry spirit of her spouse stood at her bed. side, and with loud menaces, repeated his command. Fisher, therefore, was sent to the sexton, and mat- ters being arranged, the weeping widow and ker friend attended in the dismal vault:— the coffin was opened with much solemnity, and the faith- ful matron stooped down, and kissed the clay- cold lips cf her adored husband. Having re- luctantly parted from the beloved corpsej she spent the remainder of the day in silent anguish. On the succeeding morning, Fisher ( who intend- ed to sail for England on that day) called to bid his afflicted friend adieu. The maid- servant told him that the lady had not yet arisen : " Tell her to get up," said Fisher, " I wish to give Her a few- words of consolation and advice, before my de- parture." " Ah !
