( / 7" ^ ^ 7 S, \ / PRINTED AND PL BUSHED, FOR THE P1 OPFULTORS, BY G. F. HARRIS, WV . VOL. XIX. No. 594. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1813. PRICE SIX- PENCE HALFPENNY. WEDNESDAY'S POST. LONDON. TUESDAY. FEB. 2. HIS Roval Highness the Prince Regent has been pleased to appoint Lient.- Gen. Fred. Maitland to be Lient.- Governor of the island of Dominica. Gaz. Ill- patches have been received from the Marquis of Wellington, which, we are happy to hear, contain the pleash. ff advice ofhis Lordship having, in a great mea- ure, succeeded in tilt object of bis visit to Cadiz, the Spanish Government having agieed to furnish surh military aid as will enable the dlnstrions Chief to open the ensuing campaign with the fairest prospect of a most brilliant, happy, and decisive termination. The dispatches were brought to Kinsale by a packet which sailed on the 14th nit. and was forced by adverse winds to put into that port. We have still to regret the non- arrival of a mail from Goltenburgh, nnr have we received, through any other channel, any account of the progress of the Russians iu Prussia and Poland. Letters have been received from Franre, which contain reports of offers of peace having been made by Bonaparte to the Em peror of Russia, in which he offered to sacrifice his Allies, Prussia and Saxony, and not to insist upon the enforcement of the Continental System in Russia. We consider these reports as not entitled to any credit. A mail from Heligoland arrived yesterday. The letters by this conveyance state the important fact of the communication with the Continent being no longer Interrupted, the French forces having been withdrawn from tbe mouths of the Weser and the Elbe. Tbe accounts from Denmark are also of the most satisfac- tory description, and little doubt remains of our com- mercial relations with that and all the other States of the North being completely re- established in tbe ensuing spring. These are all important aud most gratifying considerations. Letters from Paris of the 21st ultimo contain a most decisive proof of the reduced state of Bona- parte's Treasury. They sav, that all tile bills drawn on the Treasury at Paris by Prussians, Poles, and • objects of the Confederacy of the Rhine, who have supplied the French army by contracts, have been refused payment, and are returned protested I It was on Saturday reported, that the barriers of Paris had been shut during three days in the week • preceding, and that every possible precaution had been taken to prevent any intelligence from reaching" the departments from the capital. It was, however, generally known, that there were serious disturbances every night at all the theatres in Paris, aud that in consequence three of them, namely, the Theatre Fey- Jean, Theatre du Vaudeville, Rile de Chartres, unci the Theatre des Vurietes, Boulevards, Mr. iitinar- tre, had been shut up. A great number of unhappy persons ( mostly females) relatives of those who had perished in Russia, wcte shot while besieging the doors of tbe office pf the Minister at War, to obtain *•*. formation itspectiae their iiift'urtiinKte military friends. Since this internal massacre, an apparent tranauillity had been restored, and large patroles of cavalry occupied the principal streets, who were di- rected to disperse every groupe of persons exceeding two in number. The extent of the Frcivdi loss in Russia ha- 1 heen made kuowu with great assiduity, by means ol placards chalked on the walls. The Aitona Mercury of the 2d ult. mentions that some hundreds ot French agents have been dispatched to all the Continental States to purchase horses for the remounting of cavalry, and that there has been, in consequence, an advance of 25 per Cent, on the price of these animals. Bv an Imperial Decree, of the 4th of the last month, 50,000 saddle- horses are required to be fnr- nished by the different departments, for remounting the cavalry. The departmeut of the Seine is to fur- nish 120 horses, viz. 60 horses for the cuirassers, and 60 for tbe dragoons, or light artillery. They are to be paiil for at the rate of 400 franks for tilt horse of the cuirassier, and 350 for the dragoon horse. A gentleman lias reached town, who was on board the Scheldt fleet about a month ago. He states, that the ships are tolerably well manned, chiefly with Danes and Swedes, but that the vessels, having been originally built of green materials, are all mould- ering away with the dry rot; and are, of course, very ill calculated to keep the sea, much less to stand a se- vere action. A Barcelona paper, of the 3d December, contains several reports to General Decaen, the Commandant, on the subject of Ihe late conspiracy among Ihe citi- zens. Itis affirmed in these, on the authority of a voluminous correspondence found in the possession of Joseph Baiges, a merchant in Barcelona, that the design of poisoning the French garrison had been sug- gested and arranged by General Lacy, Commander of the patriotic force; that it was to have been executed by introducing arsenic and other poisonous substan- ces into the water, yeast, and meal, of which the bread for the troops was to be made; and that the city, forts, aud citadel of Barcelona were to have been attacked and carried by tbe conspirators at the moment the garii- on had begun to feel the effects of the poison. While this was passing within, it had been arranged that the patriotic army should give the assault wilhont; to facilitate the success of which, the ramparts ofthe city and powder magazines in the citadel were lo have been mined, and ready on an ap- pointed signal to be blown up. Several persons implicated in the conspiracy had been apprehended, tried by a military commission, and ordered to be executed. It is probable that Commodore Rodgers will at last f ill in with some of our ships of the line, as w ill be seen from the following letter :—" Scilly, Jan. 26. Arrived the Flying Fish, Captain Frond, from St. ' Michael's, bound lo London; sailed 10th inst. and on ihe 12th fell in with Commodore Rodgers'sqiiad- ron, consisting of three frigates aud two brigs, was within gull- shot of one of the frigates, but being a fast sailer, she escaped. Oa the 15th fell in with a Bri- tish squadron of three sail ofthe line and two frigates, to whom Captain Froud gave the information of the Americans, and they immediately went in chase, and he has no doubt but our ships woQld fall in with them." The English and Irish Catholic Petitions to Parlia- • mrnt are prepared: they are brief and temperate. The Chancellor of the Exchequer, it is said, will i stand in need of a loan of forty millions, a moiety thereof to take up Exchequer- Bills, and the remain- der for the current services of the year. A new silver coinage of ninepenny pieces, is said to . have been ordered by Government. It is said that Ministers have, within these few days, contracted for clothing tor 50,000 Spaniards. Jfhis corroborates the report of the Cortes having agreed to reinforce the army under Lord Wellington with 50.000 Spanish troops. The campaign in the Peninsula is expected to commence early in March. In consequence of the immense commercial orders from the Continent, the exchange on Hamburgh has risen to 29s. 6d. The question on the subject of the East India Charter continues to be discussed with considerable industry.— Though the advocates for throwing open the ports are convinced that they have the popular side of the question, yet the friends of the East India Company calculate on having a decided majority in Parliament. The subject will no doubt give rise to a close contest. Count Walmoden, of the Austrian service, and General Gniezer, of the Prussian servi- c, are the two officers who have received commissions ad eundum in the English service. It is no new expectation that the German nations will seifce the lirst opportunity to throw off the French yoke. Persons who know that part of the Continent well, have long entertained shell ail idea ; and we have found i » expressed with great force and felicity in the following poem, which we have extracted from a volume, published between five ami six years ago ; A PROPHECY, FEB. 1807. High deeds, O Germans, are to come from yon ! Tims in your books the record shall be found: " A watch- word was pronounced, a potent sound, Arminius .' - all the people shook, like dew Slirr'd by the breeze. They rose, a Natiun true, True to herself— the mighty Germany, She of ihe Danube and the Northern Sea, She rose, and offat once the yoke she threw. All pow'r was |> iven her in the dreadful trance. Those new- born Kings she witlier'd like a flame." — Woe to them all I but heaviest wOe and shame To that Bavarian, who did first advance His banner in accursed league with France, First open traitor to her sacred name 1 W. WORDSWORTH. The following statement is given on tiie alledged authority of a letter from the much lamented Lord Tyrconnel:—" His Lordship happened lo be iu a position upon which the enemy were advancing. The cavalry had just come in sight with a tolerable quick pace, when they appeared to be arrested and fixed in their places, as it. were by magic. The leader of the corps, horses, and men, stopped short, and all in the rear stopped with him. Their con- tinuance for a considerable time in this situation, induced a suspicion of the cause. His Lordship and several others went tip to this corps of cavalry, whom they found all stiff, and frozen to death! It would seem that the leader of this small corps continued to move until he became exhausted, and that, as soon as the motion which enabled his followers to keep up with him ceased, the cold laid its leaden hands upon them, and fixed them immoveable to the earth!" An account of the battle of Borodino, said to have been written by Sir Robert. Wilson, has been published ill Russia ; but it differs ill 110 material point from that given by the gallant Kutusoff himself. There is not, in aiiciem Military History, such an instance of annihilation of an immense- army as that of Bonaparte's late one in Russia. In the three most memorable battles on record, namely, Marathon, My rate, and Phiteae, the loss bore no comparison. In the last, fought between Xerxes and Pausauias, Ihe Lacedemonian, in which the greatest loss was suffered by the Persians, the whole did not anoimt to 80,000; whereas, in the late actions between the Russians and French, the latter lost, it appears, by authentic, nnexaggerated numerical proofs 170,000; to this number may be added, by desertion, surren- der, and mortality, at a moderate calculation, 50,000 more! In consequence of the death of Lord Heatbfield, we understand the following alterations will take place :— Sir David Dimdas, from the Greys to the 1st dragoon guards; the Marquis of Lothian, from the 11th dragoons to the Greys; Lord Win. Ben- tinrk, from the 20th dragoons to the lltli: Sir Sta- plcton Cotton gets the 20th dragoons. The almanack of the French Boaid of Longitude, for 1813, announces that the strongest tides of ihe year will be those on April 2, May 1, October 11, and Nov. 9; these four tides will be high enough to occasion inundations, especially if they are aided by winds. It is computed that, last year 70,000 persons died of the plague in Constantinople and its environs; the victims in other cities of the Turkish empire double that number. The European residents es- caped the infection. Thursday last a court- martial was held on board his Majesty's ship Salvador Dei Mundo, the flag ship iu Hamoaze, for the trial of Captain Temple, of his Majesty's frigate Armide, of Mr. Nicholas, Master of the said frUate, and of Andre Bernicr, Pilot, for running ashore on the night of the 16th ult. on St. Jacque's Point, Guibeton Bay, when, after a long investigation, Captain Temple was sentenced to be reprimanded and admonished, the Master to be disrated from his ship, and to serve for one year in a lower rate, and the Pilot to be mnlcted of all his pay, and to be imprisoned two months iu the Mar- shaisea. Thought' • sentence of the Pilot is severe in consequence of his neglecting to " use Ihe lead," yet it is generally understood that it is owing to his great address that the French did not fire on the Armide when on shore, as he completely deceived them as to lirr being an English trigate, and con- trived during nine hours, to keep them in this delusion, although the enemy had threatened several times to fire if a boat was not sent on shore. Oil Friday se'nnight, Captain Quillam, of the Crescent, having reported very favourably of the chain cables used in that frigate, an experiment was made iu Plymouth- yard, by order of the Admiralty, on a chain cable, and one made of hemp. The first experiment was made in the forenoon, in the pre- sence of numerous spectatois, a heavy " strain" being hove on both for the purpose of ascertaining which could bear the greater purchase. At 12 o'clock the irnn chain broke, while the hempen cable was not injured. In the afternoon of the same day a second experiment was made, when the iron cable again broke, thus most decidedly establishing the superior qualities of hemp. Extract of a let. er from Captain A. Phillip, of the schooner Barbara, of\ Aberdeen,. to his owner, dated St." Michael's RoadsT Dec. 28, 1812:—" Sir, This will inform von of" my arrival at this port, after a most disagreeable passage of 44 days from Bristol, three weeks of which I m « beating about this island, before I got in with the land.— On the 5th instant, I had the misfortune to be captured by the Rotla, American schooner privateer, - James Dooley, com- mander, of nine guns and 78 men, off the west- end of the island, myself and crew being taken on board tbe privateer, and detained 24 hours. The Ameri- can crew plundered us, and destroyed every thing that came in their way on board the Barbara ; and took all my provisions, stores of all sorts, as ropes, warps, and spate sails, unbending also the best sails, and, after overhauling my letters and papers, gave me up the vessel again a me/ e wreck. The master and crew of the three- masted schooner Brisk, of Plymouth, which had been captured two hours before me, with part of her cargo, were put on board, six in number; and we were now twelve of us, fifteen days oil half a bag of mouldy bread, and half a barrel of beef, all that the Americans thought pro- per to leave for carrying us to St. Michael's. I might as well have fallen in with a pirate, being stripped of every thing, as well as my crew, and having only saved five guineas and my watch, which were stowed away. I am to sail this evening, and shall make all dispatch." Tbe Student ofSydnev College, CaH->.-.<:. charg- ed with selling fire to it, is the son of an eminent na- jval character. His name inKejjduli. and lit- lvjeir to a large fortune. Oil the night of the fiie lie had supped with a party, aud was not absent from them more than ten minutes, in which interval, it is said, the watchman deposes that the Student went to the two apartments, which soon afterwards burst into flames. On Tuesday, after examination, he was lodged in the town gaol, and on Wednesday, after a final examina- tion before the Magistrates, Vice- Chancellor, and Heads of Colleges, he was fully committed to the Castle, for trial at the next assizes. Monday . se'nniglit, as the turnkeys were about to lock up the prisoners confined in the gaol of Bod- min, Mr. John Basset, who was committed the week before for challenging Francis Hearle, Esq. of St. Columb, with pistols, was observed'ou the top of the walls playing various antics to the great amusement ofhis fellow prisoners below. Suddenly he leaped from the wall withoutside the gaol, and came down unhurt, when he very coolly and deliberately return ed into the prison. GREAT BRITAIN AND DONAPARTB. It is not astonishing to us that Napoleon, in the bitterness of disappointed rage, attributes to Great Britain, or, as he terms it, to " England," all the miseries which the Continent has suffered from his aqibition and injustice. The offspring of the French Revolution, who work the machinery of the tyrant's despotism, have studiously ascribed all the existing calamities'that lower so deep upon the'Napateonine dynasty, to England. The Russian firmness, that re- pelled tiie tvrants's menace, and took the alternative of war, ratlier than embrace a vassal condition under a lawless usurpation, is the act of England. The wreck, and ruin, and carnage of the campaign, flow from the contrivances of England. The re- action against Bonaparte's tyranny, which is beginning to develope itself all over the Continent, which has been fostered in associations instituted for the purpose, and which is beginning to give revolt a manifest energy, and will give resistance a physical embodying— all those auguries, to Bonaparte so tremendous, owe their birth and aliment, an ! their pi ugressive ii. airt/ ity, to England. The late abortive struggle of the Pai isians — the still more recent secession of the Prutsim army from Napoleon's cause, are equally the work of the insolent islanders. Tiiose causes Of complaint for a system of policy, which, in the language of the Con- servative Senate, " menaces tiie Continent with terrible commotions," are not sufficiently numerous to supply invective fur Bonaparte. He is actually obliged to go to history, to seek for instances of our insolence towards the despots, of the old school that governed France, to imflamc, if possible, the antipathy of the French against lis- and he is obliged to remind the nation of the melancholy ebb to which the indent islanders reduced Louis XIV. While he looks back with inward dismay to that epocha in modern history we turn to it with exultation, to shew what vigorous councils, and a sound national spirit among the great body of the people, have done, and are yet n liable to effi ct. That England which Bonaparte honours with his curses, has brought the greatest M- march that ever ruled France, lie who had once gitei. Ii.- v to Europe, to sue for peace, which was not granted to him. The French nation, for their legitimate Sove- reign, made struggles which astonished all Europe at the time. In support of his extravagant scliimes of aggrandizement they endured every degree of wretch- edness, which, in the contemplation of civilized so- ciety, it was possible for a people to endure. In the beginning of the last century Francs had, indeed, " ships, colonies, aud commerce;" and though Her trade was severely punished for the rash ambition which inspired the measures of her Government, still her transmarine possessions fostered the spirit of com- merce, her fleets were powerful, and her great com- mercial cities were able to bestow important assistance to the State, in the most exigent times; and all the great energies of internal happiness, that shoot forth in peace, were preserved, even in the most bitter struggles of war known in that age. But all those means of present enjoyment and future hope are goae. They have been pulled up by the roots, by a fantastic and speculating tyranny, acting in opposition to the experience of mankind, and seeking to place society upon a new basis, mum which it never ran be main- tained for any tunc. Commerce is trampled under the hoofs of tVjis tyranny, colonies it bus noil f It is in this situation that Bonaparte calls for 350,000 men, " to dictate a peace." Let him, if he can - but while he recollects the reign of Louis XIV. and wlut the insolent islanders were then able to effect, with much less power than they now possess ; without those acquired dominions that have swelled into nations and empires, and without the absolute sovereignly of the ocean— let hiin ponder ou the mighty facts that stare hiin in the face, and then ask himself whether there exists a nation so dull, that can be persuaded, that he can ever dictate a peace to the insolent Islanders. Napoleon by his rage pays a high compliment to this rouiiiry, which he wishes to abuse— he acknow- ledges her power and influence— he allows that to her he is indebted for the fall ofhis power— for the disap- pointment of Ins ambitious desires— for the failure of iiis schemes of universal dominion, and for his present disasters and disgrace. Recent ev- t have touched Europe to the quick.— Now is the tune to set in mo- tion every engine that policy can devise, to dash at the crisis with a moral spirit of adventure— to hazard something— to try every thing that may confederate the remains of European virtue, and bring it into ac- tion.- Now is the time to press liiin— to rally Europe by miintermittiug reclamations— by propositions libe- ral, (- hearing, and practicable— by measures of f^: rgy, pressed with intrepid zeal, with a sort of gallant poll cy, that Will cast from it contemptuously the minor order of difficulties, which dismay only tbe little fiund under great exigencies. Let us act promptly, ', ... 11 y, and generously. Now that we see his situation, by a light too broad and strong to be mistaken, let us not suffer the crisis to evade us unprofiiably— let u.^ act with vigour. It is grateful to us to see so auspi - ions a commencement— may the termination be prosperous, and worthy of the great, free, and potent empire, which has for so long sustained alone, single- handed, the cause of Europe, against the Leviathan til all iniquity.

TH E Gazette of la- t night contains a proclamation relative to rile late ontiaires in certain counties, exhorting his Majesty's subjects strenuously to exert themselves in their several stations, to prevent a re- currence of those atrocious combinations anil crimes. Tlie deluded are also exhorted ; and the proprietors of machinery are advised not to be deterred from continuing ttie use ami employment of the same, but vigilantly an. I strenuously to exert themselves in the defence of their property, and the prosecution of their meritorious callings. Tlie Gazette also contains the Proclamation for a General Fast on the tOtli of March. \ Vt have received papers from Lisbon this morning to the 21- t" tilt. They contain some interestiug infor- mation. Several French letters had been intercepted: one from lving Joseph, complaining of want of mo- ney ; one from Jourdan to Cnffarelli, stating that a junction is intended in spring between the four ar- mies of Caffarelli, Joseph, D'Erlon, and Soult. There is a report from the Commandant of Artillery, requiring 1400 horses from France, which will enable him to tiling into the field 120 pieces of cannon. Some of these letters state, that Soult has expressed his opinion that the French will be unable to remain ill Ihe Peninsula, if the British troops continue in possession of Portugal in sufficient force to enter Spain from the want of provisions, as they would be compelled to keep together. If this opinion be cor- rect, they must either hazard a battle, or retire north ofthe Ebro.-— The French army is to extend from the Ailaja to the Guadarama mountains. On the 16th ult. Lord Wellington arrived at Lis- bon, and left it on the 20th. His Lordship was receiv- ed in the most distinguished manner. Miua had twice defeated the enemy hear Pamplona, with considerable loss ou their side, while his own was trifling. ^ A paper ofthe 10th announces the receipt of Spa- nish Gazettes to the 12th of January, containing an account that the vanguard ofSuehet had been defeat- ed by the Alieant army— that the- Marshal himself had taken refuge in Murviedro, and that his commu- nication with Catalonia had been cut off. The same paper states, that there were strong indications, en the part of the enemy, of an intention to evacuate Spain. It is stated that 24,000 of the best French troops have left Spain for France. There is a report from Cornnna, that Caffarelli had left Spain for France; and that Mina was advancing to Bayonne. This report, it will be recollected, was in circulation some time since, and has been frequent-, ly repeated. The two Gottenbiirgh mails that were due arrived yesterday. Dispatches from Lord Cathcart were re- ceived at the same time, but they are of an old date, aud contain no intelligence fiom the theatre of war of which we were not previously posse- sed. The ac- counts from Stockholm are to tbe 20th tilt. They are important, and, we believe, perfectly authentic. Six thousand of the remains of Marshal Macdonald's corps are said to have surrendered at Intersburgh ; ami seven or eight thousand fugitives, collected by Murat, having been sent to favour the retreat of Mac- donahi, mutinied soon after their departure, and en- tirely dispersed. — Lord Catheart, we understand, lias set out from Petersbargh to join the Emperor Alex- ander; so that the official reports may for Ihe future be expected to be more early received than has of late been the case. Iu the mean time we are informed by the Gotteiiburgh mail, that Prince Kutusoff, with a corps of 70,000 men, had gone to Galiicia; and that another of 80,000, under Count Wittgenstein, had entered Kouigsberg; and that a third corps of 70,000 had taken possession of Warsaw.— These statements, though not official, bear every feature of probability ; for as the Russians have 110 longer any opponents ca pable of resisting their progress, we uot only see no reason to doubt the fact of their having advanced to the points here stated, but expect very shortly to hear of their having penetrated to the northern stales of Germany.— A joint declaration of the equitable and magnanimous views of Russia and Great Britain is expected to be issued as soon as the Russian army shall have passed the ancient boundary of the German Empire.— Poland is said to have been already declar- ed independent, under the Sovereignty of the Duke of Oldenburgh ; an I as a Swedish Minister ( Count Santi) has arrived at Copenhagen, reasonable hopes are entertained that Denmark, studying her own true interest, will at length be induced to unite with her northern neighbours, and share iu the glory of the great and splendid work of restoring the balance of power in Europe. A great number of French prisoners reached the neighbourhood of St. Petersburg!!, but they died so fast when the comforts of existence were restored to them, that the ordinary mode of burial was found insufficient, and channels were cut in the ground into which their bodies were thrown, which were progres- sively covered in. A private letter from Gottenburgh says:—" The French head- quarters arc at Konigsberg 011 the Oder, a spot memorable for having been occupied by Frede rick the Great for some time, in his famous cam paigns with Russia. Murat is said to have given up the command of the lemnant of the French army to Berthier, and to ha » e departed for Naples." Bnnaparte, it seems, was twelve days in passing on a sledge with the utmost rapidity, to effect his e- cape through Poland, during which time he took no other sustenance than tea and dry bread! Bernadotte has increased his popularity with the Swedes, by appointing their own countrymen as tutors to his son, ami by publicly declaring his di; approbation of the fashionable practice of employing foreign instructors for the education of the young Swedish Nobility. Extract of a letter fiom Dover, Feb. 2—" III ad- dition to my letter of yesterday, I have heard from the same source of information, that the levy of men aud horses is general in every town in France, aud also a contribution in money, which is called volun- tary ; but if the person called upon does not voluntarily give the sum asked, a tax of double the amount is levied on him by way of poll tax. The Emperor is described as very fat and jolly, and does not appear lo have suffered any fatigue. The Pope is said to have declared his last marriage unlawful, and the issue of it, the King of Rome, illegitimate, which gave great uneasiness to him, and the people say that he has had 110 good luck since he divorced his wife Jose- phine, who lives retired near Paris. The Emperor has had fiequent and long conferences with tiie Pope latelv. It is stated that tbe Emperor oi Austria will not furnish any more t- oops unless the French gtve up four strong fortresses in Italy. A gentleman w ho ha I .111 English hlood horse, which he valued at 120 guineas, had him taken fioui him at Pari", and was paid only 201, lor him by the Government. Austrian Messengers go and come very quick from Paris to Vienna, aud that Cabinet is stated to be much cha- grined ;!> the opinion ofthe Pope on the illegality of the marriage. The people ill France are much agi- tated, and dread some great convulsion hourly. The Generals and Marshals are arriving in Paris, but . chiefly inc< g. Bonaparte is blamed for having stopped so Ion; at Moscow, and then for having quitted jt when rbe cold was so extreme that 30,000 men are stated tu have perished by il alone, before they reached '.. nsko. Parties of 20 or 30 were found sitting . * i a ring where there had been- a fire, all frozen , where they halted to rest themselves, and . ... f those who escaped have lost their noses aud Advices from Alieaut of the 31st December, iu form ns of the arrival there of the remainder of the expedition, to the number of 5000 infantry and 300 cavalry. Bills were yesterday received in London, drawn from Berlin and Hamburgh direct. This is a striking proofot the fragile state in w hich Bonaparte's empire 111 the North now is. A morning paper says, that " Advices were yester- day received from America, via Lisbon aud Cork, which state, that Mr. Clinton has been elected P. esi- dent of the United States. We hope this intelligence will prove correct. It- was brought to Cork by a ves- sel from Lisbon, from which port she had had a very short passage. Previous to her sailing accounts had been received there from Baltimore, which stated, that the election for President had taken place, and that Mr. Clinton, having a majority of votes, was elected President, in the room of Mr. Madison." We have the satisfaction to state that his Majesty continues in the same state of tranquillity that we have reported for many weeks past.— Windsor Ex- press. Yesterday the Prince Regent held a Chapter of the Knights of the Bath, 011 which occasion Lient.- Gen. Keppel, Adni. Berkeley, Sir G, Nugent, Lient.- Gen. Leitli, Lord W. Bentinck, and Major- Gen. Cole, were admitted Members of the Order. Capt. J. Hayes is appointed to the Monarch; and Capt. A. Brine, to the Bellerophon, both cutting down to raztes. The Chancellor of the Exchequer h;. s submitted to the consideration of the Governors of the Bank and others, a project for the optional funding of Exchequer Biils, by making interest upon them, at the rale of five per cent, payable half yearly,, and giving to the holder the option of funding them at any time, iu the three per cents reduced, at a price to be settled, or to have payment fur them in money, si* months after the Definitive Treaty of Peace. The Swedish Government have restored 100,0001. of the seized property belonging to British merchants; aud farther restoration is expected to be made. The division will be made under authority of an Act of Parliament, ( o prevent claims being made after the account is closed*. An article from Copenhagen mentions that an slaud has been discovered in the South Sea, in lat. 54, which has been called Macqnarrie Island, bv the Governor of Botany Bay. This place has been Very profitable to the seal fishers, 80,000 of these animals having been caught in two months. From accurate inquiry it has been ascertained, that more than one million and a half sterling, guineas and other inferior gold coin, are literally deposited wilh the pawnbrokers of the metropolis, at 10 per cent, interest. Molineanx bas again had the arrogance to challenge the veteran Cribb, to fight at the first Newmarket Meeting, for the same stakes as last contended lor at riiistletoil Gap. We understand the friends of the Champion have insisted on his declining the Black's fai our ! A shoemaker, w ho w as collector of lira income lax ill the parish of Christehiirch, Surrey, has lately be- come a defalcator to the amount of 37001. The man- ner iu which he obtained so important an office w as this: he had been for several years a constant atten- dant at Mr. Rowland Hill's Chapel, and by the fer- vour of his devotion attracted the notice, and at last gained the friendship of that gentleman, hy whose as sistauee he was enabled to move from a place little better thou a collier's stall, and take a large conspi- cuous shop. He aKo got from his patron a situation iu the chapel w orth one hundred pounds a year. He was at last, through the same generous interest, ap- pointed Collector ot the Property Tax, on which occasion two gentlemen became his sureties', o'rie in 10001. and the other in 20001. the wliolfc of which sums they will now have to pay. The Barons of the Exchequer have' decreed that the woods of the parish of Botley, Hants, are not liable to the payment of tythes. COURT OF KING'S BENCH.— This-. morning Messrs. Hunt, of the Ex. oiiiner, were brought tip for judgment for a libel 011 the Prince Regent, when Mr. Justice Le Blanc, after a suitable admonition, pronounced the sentence of the Court upon the Defendants, which was as tollows : —" That each defendant be imprison- ed two years, one in the House of Correction in Cdld Bath Fields, and the other in the Surrey County Jail, in Horsemonger- laue. At the close of their imprison- ment they are also to pav a fine of five liundredpn'iiiids each ro the King, aud to find security for their good behaviour for five years." OXFORD, JAN. 30.— The Prince Regent has been pleased to annex a salary of tool, per annum to ihe office of Reader iu Chemistry. — Rev. Wm. Wescomb, of Oriel, aud Mr. Charles Wynne, of Jesus, are ad- mitted Masters of Arts; and Mr. Thomas V. Short, of Christchurch, Bachelor of Arts. HOUSE OF COMMONS. The Orders of the day were disposed of, for taking into consideration tbe Election Petitions from Cork, Hithes, Grampound, Aldburv, Downpatrick, and Ca- inelford, the parties not having entered into the ne- cessary recognizances. The Speaker took the opportunity of entering into an explanation regarding the recognizances in the Galway petition. ROMAN CATHOLICS. Mr. GRATTAN gave notice that on the 25th of this mouth, it being a convenient day, he should submit a motion to the House oil the subject of the Catholic Claims. The moliou would be " For the appointment of a Committee to take into consideration the state of the laws affecting Ins Majesty's Roman Catholic sub- jects, iu both England and Ireland ; pursuant to a Re- solution of the last Sessions of the last Parliament." Mr. CANNING presented a Petition from the Liver- pool Dock Company, praying pecuniary aid from Go- vernment.— The Chancellor of the Exchequer having signified that the Petition had received the appro- bation of Government, it was laid upon the table. Mr. PROTHEROE presented'a Petition from Bristol, praying for an extension ofthe East India Trade. It was ordered that the Vice- Chancellor's Bill be read a second time 011 Thursday se'onight. Further that the House do to- niorrow resolve itself into a Committee on the Naval Stores Act. Further on the motion of the Chancellor of the Ex- chequer, that the House resolve itself into a Commit- tee'ou the Local Token Act. Wf FIVE GUINEAS REWARD.

TO be SOLD by AUCTION, in Lots, at the Car- diff Arms Inn, Cardiff, on Monday, the 8th day of March, 1813, unless previously disposed of by Pri- vate Contract., of which due notice will be given ;— THE VEKY VALUABLE AND EXTENSIVE MANOR OF LANDAFF, With Fisheries in the Rivers Taffand F. ly, Tolls of the Fairs, and valuable Commons thereto belonging f near 700 Acres of very fertile Arable, Meadow, and Pas- ture Land, situated in Lanilaff, Canton, Fairwatrr, Ely, and Whitchurch, on the banks of the Rivers Taff and. Ely, and great part adjoining the turnpike- road fi om Cardiff to Cowbridge ; together with the Scale of the ancient Castle, and several very valuable Messu- ages and Gardens, delightfully situated in and near the Town of Landaff. The. whole of this Estate is Freehold, and from its situation possesses peculiar advantages, being in a re- markably fertile and beautiful country, within one mile and a half of tne. Port of Cardiff, aud having Coal and Lime at a very easy distance.— It is part Let on Lease for Lives, part on short Tenns of Years, aud part at Will. Particulars may be hud at the. principal Inns at Car- diff, Cow- bridge, Newport, and Neath; of Mr. Wm. Mathews, of Canton, who will shew the Estate ; of John Evans, Esq. St. Mildred's- Court, Poultry, Lou- don ; of James Richardson, Esq. New Inr, London ; and to treat bv Private Contract, apply to Messis. Claridge and Iveson, Pali Mall, London, where l'ians of the Estate may be seen. PARIS papers to the 31st nit. reached town last night. Their contents are of considerable im- portance, inasmuch as they decidedly shew the effect already produced in the public opinion of Europe by the successes ofthe Russians, and the means adopted to give a general circulation lo the details of the French disasters. We do not know," says the Monitenr, " why the English atlaih importance to inundating out coasts and the Comment with pamphlets filled with false accounts." We may ask, why this queru- lous remaik, if Bonaparte had not deeply felt the effect aiding from the publ cation ofhis defeat and disgrace, and of the destruction u, f his army ? His Marshals, Davoust and Ney, are however dragged forward to givca contradiction lo the Russian accounts of their defeat and the dispersion of their corps; but the contradiction is made in such a way, coupled with other articles in the same papers, as to proye the truth of the Russian statements. If the corps were not disposed of in the manner detailed by the Russians, what became, of them ? This is a question which eve- ry one on reading those statements will naturally ask, and to which the. Frehch papers themselves give in fact a complete answer, by proving that these corps no longer exist. It is now confirmed that Murat had given np the command ot the remnant of the French army to Eu- gene Beauhai nois, ami had set out for Naples. The cause ofhis quitting the command is slated lo be indis- position. It may, however, well he imagined, that iiis real indisposition was to continue in the command of tlie wreck of an army with which lie could effect nothing. . Eugene, too, is brought forward to give a lame aiidiilipotentcoiitiiidictioii to yieofficial accounts published at Petersburg!!. These ridiculous attempts to deny facts, the truth of w hu ll is notorious to all Fill ope, tdily se. i ve to shew the dilemma to which the once powerf 1 Tyrant of France is reduced. Every act of tlw French Government since tlie return of Bo- naparte to Paris, all its bustie of preparation, the anx- ious eagerness to raise and send forward fresh troops, and the utter inability of the remnant of the French grand Army to maintain even anv defensive position, at once prove to all Europe the truth of the Russian accounts; whilst the feeble attempts made to contra- dict them upon paper w. li onlv tend to convince those over wiliini Bonaparte has hitherto tyrannized, that he feels,- even yet more than they might at first have been- induced, to sijppose, the losses and the disgrace he had suffered Mnrat. it appears, before lie quitted the command, withdrew, the head- quarters to Posen, w here also these papers state a vanguard of 40 000 fresh troops were to assemble, under- Nc, v. Gen. Rapp is stated to be iu the occupation of Dantzir wiih 30,000 men. The amount, of troops mentioned in the papers is, we have no doidit. iii'every instance exaggerated: to multiply upon paper for the purposes of deception being a well known French trick. The limited means of Bonaparte are proved by his statement of General Souhan being about to pass the Rhine with a corps of observation. This General it will be recollected was very recently in Spain, and there is no donht that a considerable body of troops has been withdrawn from thence Willi the Geneial. We learn by letters from St. Petersburg!!, that not only that city, but almost every part of the Russian Empire, is ' over- mil with French spies and incendia- ries. " ThlS following extraordinary aiticle accompa- nieijjthis communication.:.—" The Gold Baton of Field Marshal Davoust, which, with several French eagles, had been recently hung np in the Cathedral, as mili- tary trophies, was stolen the next day, to the great astonishment and indignation of Government and the inliaUtants of that city. The most rigorous search being set on foot by the Police, it was at length found in the obscure lodging of a Frenchman, who was im- mediately apprehended, and executed for the offence." Accounts have been received, which lead to a con- fident hope that Commodore Rodgers is at this mo- ment in the cn- tody of a British squadron. Another American schooner, prize to the Rover gun- brig, has been sent into Plymouth. The accounts furnished by the Captain, respecting the state of the election for President, are, we are sorry to say, di- rectly opposed to those of the prize sent hi on the 1st instant, and to the account received via Cork, as our readers will see by the subjoined letter:—" PLY- MOUTH, FEB. 2.— The American ship Union was sent in here yesterday, bound from Philadelphia to Bour- deanx, and to- day came in the American schooner Governor M'Kear, prize to tbe Rover ; they left Phi- ladelphja in company on the 28th December, at which time the Electors' votes for President had not been received at the seat of Government; bnt there was no doubt whatever, that Madison would be re- elected, by a majority of at least votes. The liiil for build- ing four 76' s ( the year of their independence 1776,) four frigates, and four sloops of 18 guns, had passed both Houses of Congress. There was some talk of an embargo ; but the present opinion was, that it would not take place. The bonds given by the merchants wonM) it is generally supposed, be cancelled, if the property could be really proved to belong to American citizens; that which could not be proved would be condemned: but Congress had not come to any deci- sion on this subject when these vessels left." :, The Court of King's Bench this morning granted a Rule, Calling on Sir Francis Bnrilett to shew cause why an early dav should not be. appointed for a trial at bar in Ins action against the Earl of Moira, as Con- stable of the Tower, < xc. oil the motion cf Mr. Solici- tor- General, PARLIAMENT. Several Petitions were last night presented to the House of Lords against the Catholic Claims. In the House of Commons, Mr. Creevey suggested that the returns of tiie produce of the Propei ly Tax appearless this year than they were last, and from this he inferred that the Tax itself falls off, and begins to prove uhprode ; five. The Chancellor of the Exche- quer at once set him right, by explaining that this arose merely from the circumstance of a larger portion of arrears haying been brought to the Exchequer in the last year than in the present; and further stated, that far from apprehending a falling off, he had every reason to believe the real produce- of the Tax was cou- sideraBTy larger than before. The deficit of 2,400,0001. wuich appears in ttie returns lately published, admits a! si « tf a satisfactory explanation. The sum of BOO, 0001. of it Is due to the country from the East India Com- pany, aud the 1.600,0001. remaining is traced to a de- taieauou of the duties on malt and beer. This defal- cation arose from the small stock kept oil band by the brewers and maltsters on account ofthe high price of ' gram, which they expected would fall wnen the har- vest'came on. Mr. Whitbread gayo notice ofhis intention to make a motion oh the subject of peace, ou the 4th of next * inuiitii.

On Thursday last, Richard Hodges Carter, of this city, Gent, was admitted an Attorney of his Majes- ty's Court of King's Bench. The Treasurers of our Infirmary have received 101. for the use of that institution, being a sum paid by Mr. John Bishop, jun. of Cheltenham, as an acknow - ledgment of his error, for stigmatizing the character of a respectable clergyman with reference to a mar- riage at his parish- church. A Meeting of the Inhabitants of this city, convened by the Mayor, was held attheTolsey oil Monday last, to consider of the propriety of contributing to the fund for the relief of the Suffering Russians, when a very liberal subscription was entered into by the gen- tlemen present, and lists were ordered to be laid at the different Banks for the signatures of those who wish to forward a purpose so truly laudable— See advertisement in a subsequent column. The Liverpool Advertiser of Monday last, contains tbe following address, which we copy in the hope that it may act as a stimulus to our readers to step forward and imitate so patriotic an example. " True Coinage, Humanity, aud Charity, ever go " hand in hand. " Be it known then, that a set of honest trne- heart- « ed Britons, a Fiie- side at Sowerby's, in Richmond- " street, Williamson sqnare, have paid into one of our " banks. Sixty Pounds, as some little aid to the Dis- •*' tresses of those of their Brothers, tbe Sltrjjng Rus- sians,— who, in tbe Defence of the Liberty of alt « Europe, have been reduced to the most severe Dis- " tress, bv the merciless Ravage of the most iron- " hearted ' invader and Tyrant which ever was in hu- " man shape. " We earnestly call upon all other Fire- sides and " Clubs, who sie comfortably enjoying their pipe and « their glass, to reflect for one moment on the dis- « tressed situation of a part of their Brother Russians, " and to bring to their mind the glorious expressiou of " the great Lord Nelson— ' England expects every man to do his duty.' " What is the duty here commanded ?— Why, ' tis Con- " tribution to the Relief of the distressed Russians." " The speedy prospect," says a Manchester paper, " of an opening on the Continent from the late success of the Russians, and the very high price of raw cotton, have bien the means of causing an unprecedented de- mand for all kinds of manufactured goods, particular- ly calicos; not less than from 3 to 400,000 pieces have been sold within the last week, at an advance of from 3s. to 6s. per piece. We rejoice to hear also, that the labours of the industrious weaver will be improv- ed in the rise." The Mayor and Corporation of Bath on Friday agreed to petition both Houses of Parliament against the Roman Catholic Claims. We understand tne Clergy of file Diocese of Exeter and the Freeholders of Wiltshire, have resolved ou a petition in favour of the Roman Catholics. A warrant from the Speaker of the House of Com- mons has been served on the Major, Town- clerk, and Chamberlain ofthe city of Bristol, desiring their attendance at the bar of the House on the 25th of February inst. for the purpose of giving information on the matter of the petition which has been pre- sented by Mr. Hunt, Mr. Wm. Pimm, and others, complaining ofan undue election for that city. Two persons, of genteel appearance and ensnaring address, one of whom called himself a Colonel, and the other a Swedish Count, have for several days been defrauding jewellers, linen- drapers, tailors, & c. Tliey are attended by a servant in green livery with led facings, and have levied contributions lately in ( Cheltenham and amongst the Oxonians. A descrip- tion of fheir persons has been published, but as yet they have eluded justice. The Sunday Sebodls at Cheltenham, it gives us pleasure to state, continue to improve in point of dis- cipline and utility. The plan of education adopted at these schools comprises all the advantages of Dr. Bell's and Mr.- Lancaster's systems, and is therefore calculated to deserve the support of the adherents of both parties. The school- room is at the town- hall, and is daily open to visitors. In the recent action far usury ( Hoflinge. Collier) in the King's Bench, Lord Elleuborougb, in his address to the Jury, made the folio wing'remark, which maybe consider- ed important, inasmuch as i t clearly shews his Lordship's opinion to be tbat Bankers have a right to charge commission on the discount of bills :—" Tt had been shewn. that he '( the defendant) was not a Banker, other- tcise he would hare been entitled to his commission had he simoly paid und received money for another, as an in- demnification for his house, clerics, Sfc.; but that he was a wine merchant, and in such character had discounted bills for Boyston und Co.. How then could he be entitled to more than five pir cent ?" A family party of 16 persons lately met atChalford, among w hom were the follo wing degrees of relation- ship :— 1 grandmother, 2 fathers, 3 mothers, 3 hus- bands, 2 wives, 2 widows, 7 brothers, 9 sisters, 4 brothers- in- law, 7 sisters- in- law, 5 sons, 8 daughters, 3 sons- in- law, 3 daughters- in- law, 5 grandsons, 6 grand- daughters, 2 great uncles, 2 great aunts, 3 uncles, 3 aunts, 5 nephews, 8 nieces, 16 first- cousins, lo se- cond- cousins, 16 third- consins, and 16 fourth- cousins. There is now in the neighbourhood of Cheltenham, a poor family, consisting of six persons, who are nearly all frost- bitten. The youngest will, in all probability, lose both his feet, the father a hand, nml the rest be mutilated. They reside at Shaw's Green, near Prestbury. A detachment of the Worcester militia have marched to Fort Cumberland to relieve a detachment of the Noi ill Cork, which have joined their regiment at Gosport* Lord Foley's Hounds will meet on Monday, the 8th, at Ronndhill; Wednesday, the 10th, at llroad- heath ; and Friday, tbe 12th, at Perry Wood, Croome, at ten o'clock. Friday an inquest wa9 taken at Bushley Park, Worcestershire, on view of the body of Judith Beale, spinster, aged 17, who died by poison the preceding Wednesday night. It appeared in evi- dence that a man of the name of James Foster had paid his addresses to this young woman for some time; aud that, during the absence of her mistress, he had been with her on the night of th: 12th nit. On the following morning she was taken exceedingly ill, and continued so till her dissolution, previous to which slie stated, that Foster, on the Monday pre- ceding her illness, had brought her* three penny worth of mercury, and had persuaded her to take a fourth of it, saying it would do her very little hurt, and that he knew three or four who had taken it. She also confessed it was to procure abortion. On tbe 2tst she miscarried. Verdict, manslaughter,— On which James Foster w as committed by the Coroner lo the county prison. Monday au inquest was taken atReilmarley D'Abi- tot, ou the body of a new- born female infant, of which Hannah Sparrow, single woman, on the 22d ult. delivered herself alone in a field iii the above parish, and who died ou the 26th. By the exami- nation of the witnesses it appeared that the mother having been told by a relation with whom she resided, that she should not be confined at his house, was pro- ceeding to the cottage of a friend, about four o'clock in the afternoon, and was suddenly taken in labour. She immediately went to her friend and told her of her situation, incautiously leaving the poor infant in the field in one of the most hitter days of winter, uncovered. She staled where it lay, and begged it might be sent for. The neighbours hastened, and found the child alive, and brought it to the mother ; ~ it survived four days. No mark of violence ap- peared upon it, and the jury being of opinion that the mother had no intention to destroy her offspring, and that her leaving it so cruelly exposed arose from the agitation and fear she was in at the time, returned a verdict of natural death. Ou Monday se'unight as Mr. Yapp, a farmer, of Ilopton, was returning from Bromyard market, he was stopped by three footpads, who, after beating liini in a violent manner, robbed him uf nearly 301. A person of the name of Brady was apprehended at Wolverhampton a few days since, charged with the robbery of the Leeds mail some time ago. We stated in our last, that tbe woman of whom the supposed murderer of Mr. Robins bonowed the pin immediately previous to tin- murder of that gentle- man, could not swear to Howe's person; but we now find that, ou the examination, she did speak posi- tively to his person, aud that a young man who saw him get a thorn out of a hedge just before he borrowed Ihe pin, also spoke positively to his person. It ap- peared also npon the examination, that shortly after Mr. Robins was shot, a person went into a public- house where Howe was, aud mentioned the circum- stance; Howe immediately said, " Is he dead ?" tin . being answered in Ihe'negative, lie observed, " Then they have not done tlie work effectually." A most outrageous attack was made upon Mr. Eale, a farmer, at Ashley- hole, on the confines of this coun- ty, on the evening of Monday, the 25th lilt. The kitchen door was forced by four ruffians, armed with bludgeons, who entered the parlour where Mr. and Mrs. E. their little daughter, and the maid servant were sitting. They knocked Mr. Eale down, and beat him till he was unable to move. His wife and daughter were fastened into a clojet, and the servant- maid was compelled to go up stairs with the villains, who broke every lock they could get at, and stole, from a chest of drawers, bank- notes and cash to the amount of 1131. with which they made off. Mr. E. is in a dangerous state. A carter and his boy, who slept in a different part ofthe house, were not disturb- ed. One of the ruffians, supposed to belong to tbe gang, was taken into custody on Saturday, about four miles from Wellington!. His name is Wiggand, and he belongs to a tribe of gypsies. He excited suspicion by offering a quantity ot guineas for sale to a coach- man, a number of such coin having been stolen from Mr. Eaies' house. He had also a spoon in his pos- session, with the initials J. E. Apprehension of the murderers of Mr. Webb and his servant, at Hoddenbury, near Trome.— We are happy to inform our readers that the perpetrators of this atrocious murder were apprehended on Tuesday, near the spot where tlie horrid deed was committed. They are two young " labourers, of the names of Ruddock and Carpenter, neither of whom has yet attained the age of twenty, and were natives of the neighbourhood. Immediately on their apprehension, the latter turned King's evidence.— As it appears that no one but them- selves were concerned in this horrid business, there is every reason to conclude that the man, whose com initial is mentioned iu our last page, will be set at liberty. Fire.— On Thursday night, about eight o'clock, a fire broke out iu the outbuildings of Mrs. Harris, of Moreton Corbet, Salop, which, we are concerned to state, were entirely destroyed, with all the grain, hay, & c. therein : it also communicated to a stack of bar- ley, one of oats, and one of wheat, all of which were consumed, except a part of the latter. The whole of the horses, cattle, & c. were fortunately saved, except- ing one call' and a pig. The dwelling- house was, by prompt assistance and great exertions, prevented from becoming a prey to the merciless element, which spread with amazing rapidity. It appears that one of the servants had gone to the stable to feed the horses for the night, and had bung the lantborn in the usual place on a hook, whilst he went to throw down some hay; he was, however, very soon alarmed by the smell of fire, and immediately descending, fotiud the stable in flames, occasioned, as is supposed, by the candle being so long as that the flame of it necessarily escaped thro' the top of the lanthorn.— The damage sustained is estimateilat from 6 lo 7001. none of which, we understand, was insured. Some sacrilegious villain or villains forced the doors of the Orphan Asylum Chapel, Bristol, last week, and stole thereout the contents of the charity- box, which fortunately did not amount to more than a few shillings. Local Militia. — No person serving in the Local Mi- litia, or personally or by substitute in the regular mi- litia, is liable to any rate made for providing substi- stutes for the local militia ; and whoever shall insure, or be engaged in any society for insuring others, or each other, against serving, shall forfeit 501. for every offence.

AT a Meeting of the Dean anil Chapter, and Clergy of the Cathedral Church and Diocese ef Hereford, liolden, after Public Notice, iu the Chapter House, on Friday, tbe 22( 1 day of January, 1813, to consider the propriety of Petitioning both Houses of Parliament concerning the Roman Catholic Claims, The Very Rev. the DF. ANof HEREFORD in the Chair; Resolved— That it is proper to Petition both Houses of Parliament concerning the said Claims. That the following Petition be presented to the House of Lords :— " To the' Right Honourable the Lords Spiritual' and Temporal of the United Kingdom nf Great Britain and Ireland, in Parliament assembled ; " The humble Petition of the Dean and Chapter and Clergy of theCathedral Church and Diocese of Hereford, whose names are hereunto sub- scribed. " Your Petitioners notice with serious attention the Claim preferred by our Christian Brethren ofthe Ro- man Catholic Communion to be admitted to the Legis- lation and Administration of the United Kingdom. " We conceive that no subject of a Sovereign Inde- pendent State can equitably claim to be admitted to Offices of Authority therein, while he acknowledg « s a spiritual dependence on any Foreign Slate or Poten- tate; that such admission is contrary to the principles of national union, and the policy of all nations; that it has generated disorder and calamity in this and other countries ; and is carefully avoided, as a dangerous solecism in fhe Constitution of Governments. " We think that other tenets of the Roman Catholic Church render the Members thereof unfit to be Le- gislators and Ministers under a King, and over a na- tion, professedly aud legally Protestant, and engaged by Constitutional stipulations aud settled conviction so to continue. " We are apprehensive that an admission to the Councils of the Empire granted lo the best of men, condemning, as heretical and unsaving, the established faith and worship of their country, hath a tendency to the insinuation of measures hostile to the Ecclesiastical Institutions of ihe United Kingdom, and to tbe Civil Policy with which they are inseparably interwoven; productive of disunion in the Councils, and disorders in the State. " Our ancestors, at a distant period, felt the severe necessity of imposing on their Roman Catholic coun- trymen larger disabilities, which we rejoire to have seen removed by onr fathers aud contemporaries in later times; who, by this their justice and liberal po- licy, have shewn to the present age and to posterity, that they view ed the restrictions which they permitted to remain, as an essential sal g ard to the Protestant Religion throughout tlie Eni| r , and to the Constitu- tion in Cbnrch and State. We do not percoivc any alteration of circumstances, which can affect the prin- ciple of their decision, and recommend a departure from their conduct. " Your Petitioners^ therefore most humbly pray that the remaining restrictions may not be removed ; lely- ing on the wisdom of this Right Honourable House for ihe continuance of protection to the Established Failh and Worship, and toleration to all our fellow subjects by whom they are not approved. " And your Petitioners shall ever pray," & c. That the same Petition be pi eseuted to tbe House ot Commons. Which sa'd Petitions being subscribed by all the Clergy present; • Resolved,— Tbat they be tiansmiited to the absent Clergy of the Diocese for their consideration. That the Lord Bishop of Hereford be requested to present tbe Petition to the House of Lords; and the Members for the County cf Hereford be requested to present the Petition to the House of Commons. That these Proceedings be published in the Here- ford, Shrewsbury, Glvcester, and Worcester Papers, and in the Courier. GEORGE GRETTON, Chairman. GLOCESTER INFIRMARY, JAN. 29, 1813.

CConcluded from oar last.) THE amusements of the people are ttiose of Eng- lish children ; their senators, statesmen, and nobles maybe seen mounted on wooden horses, round- abouts, and nps and downs. Three Russians at a time will squeeze themselves into - one of their vaulting chairs ; and. as they are wheeled round, scream for joy like infants in the nurse's arms. I remember see- ing the King of Sicily going with his principal cour- tiers to a similar amusement; indeed, of all the Euro- peans, the Russian nobles bear the greatest resem- blance to the nobles of the two Sicilies. Th" grail- decs of Palermo and Naples are exactly like those of Moscow. The similitude of the two Governments may probably be tiie reason, they are both vicious ami despotic, ignorant and superstitious. This simi- larity extends to their national dances and to their mode of dress. The barina differs little from the taran- tula ; and the female peasants of the Campagna Felue dress like the women near Moscow ; with the same shoes, the same kind of head- dress, the same embroi- dered suits, and the same load of finery. The costume of Naples comes from the Archipelago ; and the art of dress was brought into Russiafrom Constantinople; and the sports and amusements, as I have above said, are the same. Iu the class of the Russian nobles, however, the women are far superior to the men; they ate mild, affectionate, well- informed, beautiful, and highly accomplished. The men are destitute of every qualification which might render them amiable to the females. It i « not to be wondered at, therefore, that tb. Moscow ladies have not the character of a very scrupulous fidelity, especially when the example set them by the Empress Catherine is taken info the account. Married, without passion, by the policy and self- love of their parents, frequently to men they never saw till the time of wedlock, subjected to ty- rants, who neither afford examples to their children, nor any source of social enjoyment to themselves; who are superannuated before the age of thirty, dis eased, dirty, and overwhelmed by debt, is it to he wondered at ? Ttie history Of the Empress Catherine and her manner of bursting the connubial bonds, is a picture ofthe state of female society throughout the Empire. Tliey do not indeed assassinate their hus- bands, but the tics of wedlock are totally disre- garded. A Russian nobleman will selt anything to get money* from his wife to his lap- dog. I visited a trading mine- ralogist, and was surprised to see glass cases filled with court dresses; and still more ou lieiitg told, they wore the dresses ot the nobility sent by themselves to be sold. Their plan is, to order everything they can procure credit for, to pay for nothing, and to sell what thev have ordered as soon as they have received it. We should call such conduct in England swindling. In Moscow it bears another name; it is Hussion mag- nificence. An Italian architect, Signor Camporesi, sent me to Prince Tnibeiskoy, a dealer in minerals, pictures, hosiery, hats, cutlery, & c. His hou- e, like a pawnbroker's shop, evtiiiited a magazine, occupy- ing several rooms. A Prince turned shopkeeper, and practising all tiie artifices of the meanest tradesman was a spectacle perfectly novel. Every article, even down to a pair of bellows, may be had ofhis High ness. Whilst we were bargaining with his Highness, another Prince, Prince L. sent to him to borrow 40 roubles to take him into the country- The number of pictures in Moscow is astaui- hing. The palaces of the nobles are filled with them. They are almost all copies brought from Vienna. As th nobles have very seldom any money, they buy their pictures by a kind of exchange. They purchase a picture for a carriage or an embroidered suit of clothes, and pay the physician his fee with a snuff- box. They are totally without taste in their choice of pictures, buying only such as are highly coloured. Same of the nobility, however, are much richer than the richest of our English peers; and a vast num- ber, as may lie supposed, are very poor. To this po vertv, and to these riches, are joined characteristics, in w hich the Russian peasant and ttie Russian prince are the same; they are all equally barbarous. Visit a Russian, of w hatsoever rank, at his country seat, and you'll find him lounging about, with his collar open uncombed, unwashed, unshaven, half naked, eatin. raw tarnips, or drinkingqnuss. The raw turnip is handed about in slices, in the first houses, upon a silver salver, with brandy, as a whet before dinner. Their hair is universally in a state not to be described, and their bodies are only divested of vermin when they frequent the bath. It is a tart too notorious to admit of dispute that, from the Emperor to the mean- est slave, throughout the vast empire of all the Rus- sia*, including all its princes, nobles, and peasants, there exists not a single individual ill a thousand, whose body is uot thus infested. The true manners of the people are only to be seen by entering ( he houses of the native untravclled Russian. The real Russian rises at an early hour, and breakfasts 011 a dram aud black bread. His dinner at noon consists of the coarsest antl most greasy food ; together with pickled cucumbers, sour cabbage, and qitnss. He always sleeps after eating, and goes early to bed. The principal articles of diet are the same everywhere grease and brandy. The horrors of a Russian kit- chen are inconceivable; and there is not a bed in the whole Empire that an English traveller, aware of its condition, would venture to approach. I have already mentioned the swarm of servants in their palaces. A foreigner wonders how this is sup- ported. The fact is, if a nobleman have fifty, or five hundred, they do uot cost him a shilling. Their clothes, food, every article are derived from the poor oppressed peasants. Their wages, if wages they can be called, scarcely exceed an English halfpenny per day, uor is this ever paid. The market, 011 a Sunday, in Moscow, is a novel and interesting spectacle. From five in the morning till eight the place de G illitzin, a spacious area, near the Kremlin, is filled with a concourse of peasants, and people of every description, coining to buy or Sell their white peacocks, pigeons; dogs of ail orts, for the sofa or the chase; singing- birds, poultry, guns, pistols; iu short, whatever choice or custom may have rendered saleable. The sellers, except in the market of singing- birds, which is permanent and very large, have no shops, but remain with their wares either exposed upon stalls, or hawking them about in their hands. Dogs and birds constitute the principal articles for sale. The pigeon feeders are distinguished in the midst of the mob, by long white wand-; these are carried to direct the pigeons in their flight. Tiie nobles of Moscow take great delight in their pigeons; and a favourite pair will sell for five or ten rubles, ( a ruble is about 2s. 8d.) The feeders, by way of exhibiting their birds, let them fly, and re- cover them again at pleasure. The eggs of ants, and tubs full of pismires, were in great quantities; they are sold and used as food for nightingales, which are the favourite aud common birds 111 Russian houses. They sing in every respect as beautifully in cages as in their native w oods. We often heard them, in the bird- shops, warbling with all the fullness and va- riety of tone which characterises the nightingale > 11 its natural state. The price of one of them, in full song, is 1$ rubles, ( a guinea and a half.) The Rus- sians, by making any rattling noise, can make them Sing at pleasure; and, throughout the night, they make the streets ring again with the melody of the finest. The prmnenades, at this season of the year, are among the many sights at Moscow, interesting to a vr. ji. ger. The principal is on the 1st of May, Rus- sian style, in a forest near the city. AU ranks fre quent it. The procession of carriages and persons on horseback is immense. Beneath the trees, and upon the green sward, the Russian peasants are seen seated in the ir gayest dresses, expressing their joy by shouting and tumultuous songs. The music of the Bulataiha, the shrill notes of rustic pipes, the clapping of hands, anil the wild dances of the gipsies, all mingle in one revelry. The wives of merchants, in dro- kies and on foot, display head- dresses of mat'ed pearls, and other most expensive attire.— Iu costliness of apparel there is no difference between a Moscow princess and Ihe wife of a Moscow . hop- keeper, except that the princesses copy the fashions of London and Paris, whilst the trades- woman preserves the habit of her ancestors. Pro- menades take place every evening. They are made in carriages and on horseback. Equipages conti- nue to pass in the same constant order, forming two lints, which move parallel to each other. Beautiful women, attired in costly and becoming dresses, fill the balconies and windows of the houses between which all this pomp proceeds to its appointed caval- cade. Hussars and police- officers are stationed in different parts to preserve order. Oil Friday, in Easter wetk, the cavalcade was on a plain called La Vallee, and the sight is the most surprising that can be imagined.— Long before reaching this plain, the throng of carriages is so great, that they can scarcely move. At last the great srene opens, and the spectacle is striking indeed. A procession, as far as the eye can reach, is seen passing aud repass- ing a spacious and beautiful lawn, terminated by the buildings of a convent. Not le* s than two thousand carriages, generally with six horses to each, bnt never less than four, arc present upou this occasion ; so much for the general effect. The appearance in detail, of the equipages, laekeys and drivers, exceeds all description. The postillions are generally old men of a wretched aspect, dressed in liveries of worsted lace, aud cocked hats; these hold their whip and reins as if they had never before been mounted. The harness consists of ropes and cords, frequently ragged and dirty.— The carriages themselves are badly built, old- fashioned, heavy, and ugly. This procession moves through the plain, as far as ttie convent, and then returns bark in the order it advanced. In the line between the car iages a space is reserved for the cavaliers, w ho make their appearance on the most beautiful English and Turkish horses. The horses are taught the manage, and continue to pace and champ the bit without advancing a step, plunging about mechanically, like the horses at Astley's: their riders are in laced Coats and ruffles, with cocked hats, aud saddle magnificently embroidered. Some of the servants are in the old Russian costume, and others arc habited like the running footmen in Italy; so that the variety formed by their motley appearance is very amusing. The Kremlin is, above all other places, most wor- thy of a traveller's notice. It was our evening walk whenever we could escape company. Iu singularity and splendour, the view it affords of the city from St. John's tower, surpasses every other. This for tress is surrounded 011 all sides by walls, lowers, and a rampart, and is filled with domes and steeple*. The entrance to it, from the city, is by an arched portal painted red, called the Holy Gate. The approach to it is hy a bridge across the fosse which surrounds the walls. It is a vaulted portal, and over the en- trance is a picture with a lamp continually burning. Centinels at e placed here, and every one is compelled to take off his hat, aud to walk nearly a hundred paces bye- headed, as he passes through. The great bell of Moscow, the largest ever founded, is in a deep pit in the midst of the Kremlin. The history of its fall is a fable copied from one w riter in- to another. The fact is, the bell remains iu the place where it was originally cast: it never was suspended ; the Russians might as well attempt to suspend a first rate line of battle siiip, with all her guns and stores. A fire took place in the Kremlin; Ihe flames caught the building over the beH; in consequence of which the metal became hot; souk' water thrown in to ex- tinguish the fire fell upon the bell, and caused the fracture which now appears in it. The great gun is another of the wonders of the Kremlin. Its diameter is such, that a man may stand upright in its month. Its lip is ten inches thick. It was cast iu the year 1674, ami remains in good order, without injury. The Kremlin contains within its circuit the ancient palace of the Czars. It is a Gothic building : a w in- dow appears in the front of it distinguished by two Gothic pillars. It is the same whence Demetrius fell in his attempt to escape during the conspiracy of Zuski, and broke his thigh, previously to his massa- cre. He lowered himself to a considerable distance by a rope, but the height was still too much for any chance of safety. Despair must have been great in- deed, when it induced any one to make the attempt. That window was also the place where the sovereigns of Russia used to sit and receive petitions from their subjects. The petition w as placed upon a stone in the court below, and if the Czar thought proper, hi sent for it. We visited the imperial treasury, which is in this palace, the ascent to it being by the stone stairs, which are memorable for the murders of the Strelitzes iu the reign of Peter the Great. It contains very little worth notice. The regalia, worn by the sovereigns at their coronation, and other costly einhroideted robes, thickly studded with gems and pearls, are the principal objects. One of tiiem was a vest twelve yards iu length, worn by Catherine the Second. It was supported by twelve chamberlains at her coro- nation. The crowns of the conquered kingdoms are likewise exhibited. We saw those of Casan, of Sibe- ria, of Astraean, and of the Crimea. The last ex- cited most interest: it was totally destitute of orni- inent; its form was, very ancient, resembling that usually given by painters to our English Alfred. In the chapels adjoining to the chambers where the treasures are kept, is a collection of manuscripts in Greek and Sclavonic : they are said to contain the travels of pilgrims to Jerusalem, at a very remote period. There is another manuscript, however, of a more valuable kind : it is a folio copy of the gospels, in Russian characters, illuminated ou ancient vellum, most beautifully written by Anne, daughter of Mi- chael Feodorovitoh. We were also shown some carv- ing in wood, by Peter the Great. This was a small box containing a letter, dated 1697, sent by him from Sardam, ill Holland, to the patriarchs at Moscow. The architecture exhibited in different parts of the Kremlin, in its palaces, and churches, is unlike any thing seen in other parts of Europe. The style is Tartarian, Indian, Chinese, and Gothic: here a pa- goda, there an arcade: in some parts, richness and eveu elegance; in others, barbarism and decay. Ta- ken all together, it is a jumble of magnificence and ruin ; old buildings repaired, and modern structures not completed, amidst noble tow ers of churches, with glittering, gilded, and painted domes. The view of Moscow from the terrace of the Krem- lin, is superb. The number of magnificent buildings, the domes, the towers, and spires, filling all the pros- pect, render it the finest spectacle in Europe. All the wretched hovels, and miserable wooden buildings, which appear iu passing through the streets, are lo- t ill this vast assemblage ot magnificent edifices. Amongst these, the Foundling Hospital is particular- ly conspicuous. Below tlie wall- of the Kremlin, the Moskwa, already become a considerable river, is seen flowing towards the Wolga. A new and superb promenade was forming on its banks, immediately beneath the fortress. It is paved with, large Bags, aud is continued from the stone bridge to another, peculiarly called the Moskwa bridge; fenced with a light, but strong palisade, and stone pillars, executed in a very good taste. A flight of stairs leads from this walk to the river. Another flight leads through the walls of the Kremlin, to an area within the fortress. The OrdeV of the Maltese Cross was so frequent, that it was impossible to mix iu company without seeing many persons adorned with that badge. The price of it at Court was three hundred peasants. Riches, profligacy, and sedition, are now the quali- fications, instead of the original ones, of poveity, chastity, and obedience. The extravagance of the Russian nobility has 110 example. They talk of twenty and thirty thousand rubles, as other nations do of their meanest coins: but these sums are rarely paid in cash. The disbursement is made in furniture, horses, carriages, watches, snuff- boxes, rings, and wearing apparel. The number of English horse- dealers and English grooms, in Moscow, is very great: they are ill high favour with the nobles. The governor of the city was considered as particularly skilful in choosing horses. English baddies and bridles sell at a very ad- vanced rate. But they as little resemble English gentlemen's as any thing in the world. Prediction hy the Bishop of Aries, in 1610. A piediction by the Bishop of Aries, in the year 1610, extracted in 1775, by Dr. Jones, late Bishop of Kildare, from a book deposited in the Royal Li- brary at Paris, and in possession of two respectable gentlemen of Dublin upwards of twenty years, one of whom received it from Dr. Jones :— " Tiie Administration of this kingdom, France, shall be so blinded with vice, that they w ill leave it without defenders. The hand of God shall extend itself over tlieni, and over all the rich.— There shall be two bus- bauds, the one true and the otheradulteroui. l); the legitimate husband shall be destroyed ( 2).

TlieGentleineu deputed ironi tiie principal manufac- turing and commercial towns uf the United Kingdom, to oppose the renewal of the commercial monopoly of the East India Company, have commenced their meetings in Pall Mall, and have appointed the Mayor ot Bristol their Chairman, and the late Mayor of Hull their Deputy Chairman. The Secretary at War of the United States has is- sued a General Order, forbidding officers and soldiers ofthe army to correspond with their friends and others 011 subjects relating to their duties, and the public service. M. Kauffman, of Dresden, has invented a mecha- nical piano forte, which plays without being touched, and which besides imitates many instruments ; lie has likewise invented divers automatons, and a new in- strxnwot ealled harmonichordp. It is a kiild ot piano, finished in such a manner that the sounds in the tenor resemble tlipst of flic human voice. A Utter brought by the last Heligoland mail com- municates the following disastrous occurrence :— " Tina Boleyne, a young woman of very superior education, who had been seduced by an English mer- chant, delivered herself, on the 8th inst. of a male infant, in an out- house belonging to her father at He- ligoland. She afterwards n turned, partook of the usual meal w ith her parent", without causing any suspicion of what had occulted, and in the evening threw the infant over the rocks, a precipice of about 400 feet. The tide being nut, the body of the child w « s discovered, dreadfully mangled. The crime be- ing made public, a, strict investigation was set on foot. Her refusal to answer the interrogatories of several matrons occasioned her to be taken into cus- tody ; bnt while the magistrates were eonveyiug her to prison, she on a sodden sprung from the rock, along which tht road lay, and w as killed by the fall." On the 19th of November, a paper 011 near sight, and the best remedies for defective vision, by Mr. Ware, was read to the Roval Society. There is rea- son to believe, from the observations of Mr. Ware, that this disease is much promoted by the use of glasses; and that when glasses arc not employed, it wears off and disappears. Hence it is much more common antong the higher ranks than among the com- mon people. In the regiments of Life Guards, Mr. Ware did not find a single person afflicted wilh the disease, ami uot above five or six recruits have been dismissed on account of vision ; while in one of the Colleges at Oxford, consistiug of 125 students, 37 were near sighted. We lament to say that the murderers of Mr. Webb and his housekeeper, at his house near Frome, have uot been discovered, although every possible exertion lias been made by the Marquis of" Bath, on the bor- ders of whose park Mr. Webb's house was situated, as well as other wealthy inhabitants of that country ; a man lia « however ( as we stated iu our last) been fully committed for trial, 011 suspicion of being guilty of the murders. He worked in a woollen- cloth- manufac- tory, and is ealled a shearman. The circumstances that led to his apprehension are, Mr. Webb hoarded a great number of guineas, and had a considerable quantity of silver plate by him, of which lie kept a schedule, in which he stated that lie had marked tli^ t articles with an iron instrument, with a W. or two V's. Soon after the murders and robbery, the priso- ner changed a new guinea at a public Iiouse in that neighbourhood, for a pint of ale, and told the laud- lord to take for three pints which lie owed him ; the landlord observed that he did not owe for suy ale to hi- knowledge ; the prisoner persisting that lie did owe for it, the iaudlord took the money. Tiie cir- cumstance of tile prisoner changing the guinea, know- ing bi n to be a poor man, and the whole of his con- duct struck him as very extraordinary.— About the same time lie tendered in payment a hoarded shilling, of the coinage of King George II. which had a W. or two Vs. on it, resembling the mark on Mr. Webb's plate, impressed with his iron instrument. From these and other circumstances the prisoner was taken • into custody.- The aecount lie gave of his having pos- session of the guinea was, that he found it, wrapped up in a piece of wbitcy brown paper with a sixpence, 4t the entrance into Frome. At that time he stated ; himself to have walked a distance in a time that is almost impossible, upvrards of eleven miles in about an hour and a half. His object in going to Frome, he said, was to see two children, but he did not go to tlietn, nor into tlit town, but only to Ihe entrance, assigning as a reason that it became dnsk. He went to look at the contents of tue paper by the light of a shop window. He denied auyknow ledge ofthe marked shilling, but said some person must have put it in his pocket. It could uot be ascertained whether he was at home or not at the time of the murders. Last week a number of silver coins of different I sizes, some as large as our three shilling- pieces, were found by a labourer employed at the Duke of Bed- ford's quarries, near Plymouth, now excavating for the service of the Breakwater. They are very ancient and of different reigns; some of them have a warrior 011 horseback on one side, and a crown 011 the other. It is said the whole were claimed aud taken for the Lord of the Manor. A small farmer, who has a few years since resided in the neighbourhood of Norwich, has lately written from Botany Bay to his • former landlord, that 011 his arrival at Sydney Cove, it was great consolation to him to be met tiy his four sons; and that Catiel, who about twenty- five years since was sent from Nor- wich Castle, is uow a very great merchant, aud the. owner of 25 ships. PETERBOROUGH SESSIONS.— Lord Milton, Chair- man— A ease of considerable importance to wool- buyers and farmers lately catne on to be heard, wherein Mr. Win. Bellars, a very respectable and opulent far- mer, at Woodcroft, was the appellant, and Mr. Jas. Rusher, an extensive wool- buyer at Bradford, in the comity of York, was the respondent.— It appeared, that in the month of October last, Mr. Rusher purchased of Mr. Bellars, by weight, 1618 fleeces of wool, at 29s. per tod, the then market price of good wool. Mr. Rusher, finding that some of the wool was in a bad state, employed two ptr. ons conversant in the business, to assist him in examining the fleeces; and out ofthe 1618 he had so purchased, 1486 were found to be in an improper state, not hav- ing been sufficiently washed: others being wound with looks or diil, and others in a wet and damp state, " whereby they became the more weighty to the deceit and loss of the buyer thereof." For this offence Mr. Rusher laid his information against Mr. Bellars, unon which he was convicted in the penalty of 1481. 12s. being after the rate of 2s. for each fleece so found in an improper state. Against the convic- tion Mr. Bellars now appealed. After many witnesses had been, examined 011 both sides, and Mr. Carter had been heard 011 the part ofthe appellant ; at half past seven o'clock, Mr. T. Atkinson, for the respondent, commenced his reply, but was stopped by Lord Mil- ton, who said the Court was satisfied, and affirmed the conviction.— We think it right to state, for the information of farmers, that by the 82d section ofthe Act 28 Geo. IIL c. 36, upon which this conviction look place, the seller of the wool complained of shall have tlie power to apply to the Magistrate before whom the information is laid, to summon the winder of the wool; and if it sliall appear to the satisfaction of such Magistrate that such wool was so falsely wound without ihe kuow ledge of the seller, then that the winder alone shall be answerabfe. But it is to be remarked that such application must be made by the seller to the Magistrate pending the information, and immediately after the seller has received the summons to answer the complaint. This Mr. Bellars neglected to do, and therefore the Court had no jurisdiction over the winder, bnt the seller remained liable to the penalty. The Court was exceedingly crowded. THE LUDDITES.— If any of the unfortunate men who have been executed at V'ork possessed any secret that it might have been important for the public to know, they suffered it to die with them. Their dis- coveries were meagre in the extreme. ELOPEMENT EXTRAORDINARY.— The widow of a Field Officer, aged 58 years, eloped from her two daughters, in the neighbourhood of Baker- street, last week, with a gallant son of Mars, a private of Light Dragoons, aged 22, and was led to the Hymeneal altar on Monday last. The lady has 8001. a year, besides a handsome provision for her daughters. The happy couple have taken a cottage at Houuslow. HOUSE RENT.— In the year 1274, Geo. Rokcsley, Lord Mayor ot London, occupied a house in Milk- street, for w hich lie paid twenty shillings a year rent I DARING ROBBERY.— On Saturday sennight, at a quarter past seven o'clock, 0 most daring lobbery was committed at the house of Mr. York Hatton, w atch- maker and jeweller, opposite the north side of St. Magnus Church, London Bridge. Mr. H. and a youth were behind the counter, when, hearing a tri- fling motion on the door latch, lie desired him to opeu it, and just as lie approached, Mr. H. heard a loud voice ( a seeming signal) from the corner of the bridge, " All's right," and at that instant a most tremendous crash took place; the centre pane of ttiick plate glass at one blow was shivered to atoms, and bauds were seen grappling among the gold watches. Mr. H. flew to the door, which they had lashed with strong cords to the iron railing under the window, but by one powerful exertion the ring handle through which the cord passed was broken, and he was nearly upon them so suddenly, that they only carried off one 40- gtiinea watch, a second hand ditto, and a few other articles to the value of 601. They had thrown from the hooks a gold repeater, and several other va- luable gold watches. If the master of the shop had not been present ( who is a powerful man) and suc- ceeded in forcing open the door, the window it is presumed would have been cleared of a valuablestoek, as there is little doubt but the attack was made by a numerous gang. COURT OF COMMON PLEAS.— VENTS v. Healing.— This was an action brought by the plaintiff, an attor- ney, residing at Gloeester, to recover 111, for busi- ness which he had been authorised to transact. The question was, whether he had received any authority for bringing an action, by which the present claim had arisen. The facts were— a widow, named Heal- ing, living at Apperley, desirous of obtaining an ac- count of her husband's debts, in order to their speedy payment, requested Mr. Yeats, in writing, simply to wait upon the several creditors for this pjirpose. The plaintiff accordingly did so, begging each to put his name, and the amount ofhis demand, merely for the purpose of having the same discharged immediately. The several creditois put their signatures to a paper, which had the following words written at the top :— " We do hereby severally authorise Mr. Yeats, of Glocester, to support our several demands of the Executors of the late James Healing.— Witness our hands." The defendant, Mr. J. Healing, of Tewkes- bury, who did nut appear to be related to the widow, put his name down among the others, antl the plain- tiff'immediately brought an action for the recovery of the debt, by which costs were incurred constituting the present demand. The defence was, that neither the defendant nor any of the creditors had given the least authority for bringing 1111 action forthe recovery of their several claims. O11 tiie contrary, it was con- tended that the plaintiff had resorted to stratagem in order to obtain their names ai^ d debts, for the pur- pose of bringing the saitl actions. It did not appear that any authority had been given for the action in the present case, farther thau the writing at the head of the paper, which, it was said, the defendant and others did not see when they signed it. The Jury found a verdict, without hesitation, for the defendant. The paper bearing the names of the creditors was left, by consent, in the hands of the Judge's clerk. BRISTOL SHIP NEWS.

The open weather of last month gave nnCOaimou opportunities and facilities to the seasonable pursuit* in agriculture, the plough upon the warm soils in iti£ fully employed, either in winter fallows, or in pre- paring the earth for a spring crop. The flag jf the young wheat plant has recovered its healthful colour U0111 the effect of the early severe fro- ty mornings- it has begun to spread kindly on the soil, and promises ( except in a few low and undrained situations) the most . prolific tillow. Great breadths arc preparing for spring wheat. The continued high price of bread corn has caused an alacrity and exertion, in every part of agriculture, unprecedented at any former pe- riod ; and it only requires the united, liberal, and vi- gorous efforts of the state to reduce the price of pro- vision* to a moderate standard. The farmers are still employed ia land- ditching and draining, hedging and manuring. Planting of peas for podding has been several weeks in operation ; but bean- setting has not yet commenced. Some wheat has been = own in the present month, and much re- mains to be sown, both of the autumnal aad spring species. Rye, tares, & c. with alt the soiling species, hava made considerable growth for the winter, and promise an early resource. Nearly the whole of the brassica tribe have produced abundance of green food for the season. Turnips and cattle cabbage remain good, and are still in the ground : the spring cattle crops, of every kind, have a healthful and promising appearance. The straw- yard stock are doing remarkably well,—, hay and straw abundant, and store beasts of uncom- mon weight for the season. BANKRUPTS FROM SATURDAY'S OAZ. JTTE.
