Where the stomach is frequently disordered, the body is weakened ; paleness, bodilv decay, and emaciaiinn succeed, and the eyes sink into the head. The virtues of the Cordial Balm of Gilead are daily demonstrated, in eradicating the wurst aud most dan* gerous symptoms of nervous debility; and nothing has tended so much to establish the fame of this medicine, as its certain success in those complaints which strike their root* so deep in ttie constitution, and are so fatal to ( he happiness of mankind.

We trust; however, this will not be Hie case. The Russian fleet that has wintered in, and lately moved down, the Medway, is immediately to co oper- ate with the British fleet, wherever ils services may be deemed advisable by tbe. Admiralty. Letters of a recent date froni Stockholm, inform 6s, that by the Treaty of Peace concluded between Great Britain auil Sweden, the latter lias agreed to recognize the provisional government of Spain, acting in tiie name and on the behalf of Ferdinauil VII. Count J. Delagardie, a Swedish nobleman of high rank, accom- panied by Baron Stiernliold, as Secretary of Legation, is about to proceed to Cadiz, as Ambassador from tbe Court of Stockholm to the Spanish Government. It is certainly most honourable to the Rritisli Government, that in all the treaties concluded by us, since the un- principled usurpation of Spain, we have made the re- cognition of tho Spanish government an invariable con- ; ilition of our alliance. J It is stated that Lo'd Walpole was actually at Vienna three weeks before M. Otto, the French Ambassador, knew of it; and the first information the French Govern- ment received of it, was thro' the medium of the Lon- don newspapers, which announced the cirCumstaucb. The paragraph was cut out of the paper at Paris, ami 1 enclosed to M. Otto, at Vienna, who discovered ils con- tents to be correct j It is understood that there has been of lato some serious disturbances in the South of France, on account ofthe increased severity of the Conscription Laws, anil the general distress of all ranks of persons. No men- tion, not the least hint, is given of them in the French , papers. They always cliaunt the same words to the same strain—" Every thing is flourishing, and every body is happy. Bonaparte, the Titus of the hum in race— and Great Britain, the only obstacle to ail thosa grand aud generous designs which be has in contempla- tion for the freedom and prosperity of man." Oil the 19lh ult. 28,000 men left St. Petersburgh for the Russian head- quarters. A gentleman reached town ou Monday, who has visited Vienna, atid on his return traversed Bohemia, Silesia, Brandenburgh, and Mecklenburgh, passing thro' the armies in this extensive range of country. The Austrians were on the Upper Vistula 60,000 strong, in the best condition. Tbe Prussians were principally concentred at Breslaw and Berlin, aud in the whole exceeded 85,000 men, mosl of them fully equipped, and in the highest spirits. The Russians had uot more than 50,000 men in the vicinity of the Elbe, and the fatigues of the last campaign made them appear to some disadvantage, when compared with their new companions in arms; but the artillery was numerous and in complete order, and the horses attached lo it in fine condition. Prince Poniatowski was at Cracow with 8000 men, in tdtal inaction.— Most of the Polish army was disbanded, aud the men had returned to their homes. By a vessel arrived in 12 days from Bilboa, letters have been received from theuce to the enu of last iriouth. They announce some further advantages obtained over the enemy by the gallant Longa. The following is au extract frOm one of the communications :— " BILBOA, MARCH 30. — The French have been completely defeated iu an attempt to take the fortified positioa oLCastro; Longa came to our assistance with 8000 men. The enemy have experienced a great loss. Numbers of their wounded have come into this town." The Duke of Cumberland is to leave town for Ger- many next week. It was again reported yesterday, that tlie negotiation* between this country and Denmark are in a state of considerable forwardness; and t'. iat, notwithstanding the untoward appearances which seemed to arise from the attack mads upon the British fleet iu its passage through the Sotmd, matters are certainly in an amicable train between the two countries. Tbe Agent lately ar- rived from Denmark, has had several conferences with Lord Castlereagh, at the Foreign Office, aud such pro- gress lias been made towards an adjustment, that it is supposed Count BernslorH", who is now 011 liis way front Copenhagen to London, will have little more lo do than aflix his signature to the Treaty, 011 his arrival. Tbe private letters received from our army in Por- tugal, by tiie Lisbon mail, represent the allied troops as being ou the point of advancing, and holding out au expectation of a more efficient co- operation on the part of Ihe Spaniards than has hitherto been experienced, which we shall he most happy to find realized. A con- siderable degree of sickness is said to prevail in the army. The brigade of Guards are so much reduced by death and disease, that the remainder of thetn are ordered to Oporto, as they are totally unequal to actual duty in he field. LONDON. [ Tuesday's Gazette, S$ c. will be found in last page.] WEDNESDAY, APRIL 21, Paris Papers to tlie IStli inst. were last night received in town. They announce tiie departure of Bonaparte for the army on Thursday last, at one o'clock in the morning; and state, that he had passed through Metz next day 011 his way to Mayence. The French Papers contain two Reports on the situation of the French armies in the North, on the 5th and IOth of the present month. In the first of these, the defeat of General Morand is admitted, but, instead of 3500 men, which we know, from the Russian official accounts, he had with him, he is stated to have had under his orders no more than 200 French, 800 Saxons, about 30 horse- men, and four pieces of cannon. A part of the pri- soners is said to have been retaken. Several affairs are mentioned as having occurred iii the vicinity of Mag- deburgh, Ihe most considerable of which took place 011 the 5th, 011 the right bank of the Elbe, four leagues from that fortress. The French General Greuier com- manded 011 the purl of the enemy, and he is said to have repulsed tho Russians, but the last advices from Hamburgh stated the result of the action very differ- ently ; that Grenier was defeated, ant! that this circum- stance had caused Davoust to retire from Luneburgh, and to fall back oii Magdeburgh. Eugene Beauharnois had found himself under the necessity of collecting his forces, and his head- quarters had been removed from Magdeburgh to Stassfurt. The Hamburgh accounts are also corroborated by the admission, that two days after the alleged defeat sustained by tlie Russians from Grenier's corps; they crossed the Elbe at Dessau, and obliged Beauharnois to detach the 5th and part of the llth corps, to strengthen the division under Victor, which was threatened by the movements of the Rus- sians. Vandamme is said to have joiued St. Cyr, at Bremen, where five battalions had arrived. Berthier was expected at Mayence, where it is very probable the head- quarters of Bonaparte may remain for some days, to afford time for the concentration of his troops. The French Papers, as might well be expected, antici A Parts Paper of the Sth inst. contains a Decree by Bonaparte, making the Concordat, concluded w ith the Pope, obligatory on the French Church ; by which, on occasion of vacancy in any Bishopric, the Emperor is to nominate a successor for the Pope's appointment, which is to be made known to his Holiness by the Metropolitan ; or, if the vacancy is of a Metropolitan, by the oldest Bishop of the Ecclesiastical Province j but if the appointment is not made wilhin six months, unless the party lays under any Ecclesiastical exclusion, the Metropolitan, assisted by the Bishops of the Ecclesi- astical Province, shall be made to give the appointment. The declining state of Bonaparte's affairs begins at length to alarm his friends ill this country, who have hitherto yielded tt little too much to public opinion. They now begin to carp and quibble at the declarations of the allies, and we doubt not, ere long, will discover that Russia and Prussia are meditating some dreadful design againsttlie liberties ofthe French! The following are the particulars of the cargo of tbe Bonne Citoyenne, arrived at Portsmouth :— 51,8/ 5 doubloons, 18,199 pieces, 101- bars of gold, 19 ingots of ditto, 1,638 ozs of ditto, 2u| lb. bf ditto dust, 1411.904 dollars, ( ji4 marks, 3/ 88 ozs. and i! boxes of silver, 57 pieces precious stones, and sundries, valued at £' 30,000— Total £' 46l, 520 sterling. Nine waggons, with eight horses to each, loaded with gold dust, gold bars, and silver bullion, under an escort of the East India- house volunteers, have arrived at the Bank from Portsmouth. The valuable contents of these vehicles were brought by various opportuni- ties from different parts of India to the Cape of Good Hope, and thence by the Bonne Citoyennfe. Last week a very singular circumstance occurred at a house in Derby- street, Westminster. A Servant maid, who was cleaning the outside of a window in the 2d story, slipped down, but in her fall caught the coping or stone work of the window, and continued her hold, while a person rapped at fha dour; and when opened, with others, rushed up stairs, and relieved her from her perilous situation.— A heavy fine Ought to be inflicted 011 all housekeepers who impose updu any of tlieir ser- vants the task of cleaning the outside of tbeir upper windows. LONDON. THURSDAY, APRIL 22. M. Yonres, a King's Messenger, arrived this ( tinrning at Lord Casliereagh's Office, with dispatches from Berlin. The Danish Ambassador, Count BernstorfF, and suite arrived in town last night, direct from Cuxhaven, The terms of the treaty of peace between the two countries are snppo ed to be nearly arranged. The public Journals which came over in the same packet with his Excellency, slate as the most prominent conditions, that England is to subsidize 25,000 Danish troops, and retain the Danish fleet, paying the vahie. Two Gottenburgh Mails arrived this morning, with letters and papers to the 14th iust. A grand dinner was lately given at Hamburgh, in celebration of the re- establishment of the tights and privileges of " that City. The British Consul, Admiral Hope, & c. were present. — The Russian General Count Wittgenstein arrived oil the 30th of March at Beizig, and immediately issued a Proclamation to thfe Saxons, declaring his views on entering their country. Baron Von Dumber;, Major- General its thfe ' service of Great Britain, and Commander of a Russian and Prussian corps, has addressed a Proclamation to the French Generals, in thc name of the Emperor of Russia, in which he declares his determination to retaliate upou the French prisoners who may fall in his hands, any severity exercised upon any inhabitants of Hanover," who have taken up arms for their old and legitimate Sovereign. Two Heligoland Mails arrived last night,' with HaYn- burgh ttnd Altona Papers to the 10th instant. They have brought an explanation of the attack upon the Baltic fleet on its passage through the Sound, which, if correct, are of a favourable nature. It is stated in an article from Copenhagen, of the 3d, that the Danish Admiral had, in mistake, notified to Admiral Morris that England had made proposals to Denmark, instead, as the fact was, of tire overture having been made by Denmark; and lhat Admiral Morris, having subse- quently received dispatches from his Government, w hich did not notice any such proposition, he ceased to pav any regard lo the notification of the Danish Admiral.— Hostilities were, of course, renewed, and it was tu this state of things thc fleet passed Ihe Sound. This result, however, ceased with the discovery of the mistake in which it originated, and peace between the two nations was anticipated as certain. There is a great mortality in the garrisfin of Custrin, which, with the close externa! pressure of the allies, was expected soon to compel that fortress to surrender. The King of Prussia, at the date of the last account, was at Bresluu. The Prussian General, Blticher, had his head- quarters on the 3d at Dresden. The principal corps ofthe Russian army, under Wiiizingerode, were expected at Leipsic on the Is!, and from thence it is not improbable he had sent out detachments as far as Erfurt by the 10th instant. If so, they would come into contract with the regiment which the French General Souham on that day dispatched to the same place. Sir Robert Wilson arrived at Berlin on the 3d, from Kalisch, the head quarters of the Emperor of Russia. The dispatches received this morning from Berlin give a most favourable account of the spirit of the people and the army. They are said to be from Sir Robert Wilson. Two Englishwomen who have resided a considerable time at Ostend, landed yesterday nt Dover They state, that so confidently did the inhabitants of lhat city, and its vicinity, speculate upon the success of the allies, that they had " of late refused to comply with the exorbitant demands in money and contributions made upou them by their French rulers When the Bill for renewing the East India Company's Charter comes before the House, it is said to be the intention of Mr. Canning to move an Amendment to this effect— that the Trade to China be thrown open at the expiration of 10, instead of 20 jears. FRIDAY, APRIL 23. This morning an Heligoland Mail arrived, by which vie have received Berlin Papers to the 11th inst. They contain Ibe official details of the affair in which Gen. Grenier's corps w as engaged with Ihe allied troops, aud which terminated in tin; capture of 21 officers and 900 privates, belonging to tbe French army. Their total loss is estimated at about 2000 men, whilst the allies lost only 500. The movements and combinations of the allied Generals to secure the defeat of the enemy are entitled to Ihe highest praise The siege of Stettin has commenced, and the gar- rison has been vigorously repulsed in some sallies.— The peasantry in the vicinity were so exasperated against them, in consequence of the destruction of their houses that they offered to serve in the trenches. M Von Klost, the former Prussian Minister to Lou- don, had set out on his return to this country. The Saxon aud Bavarian Ministers, in imitation of Ihe French Minister, had quitted Breslaw. Thc passengers by tbe Mail bring a report of the French having been defeated by the Hanseatic Legion, near Luneburg, with ( Treat loss. The Hon. Capt. King came passenger by the mail, and is the bearer of dispatches, supposed to be of great importance. The letters from Hamburgh express full confidence that the French will not become masters again of that city. It was said they had evacuated Bremen. Gen. Morand died at Boitzenbuigh of his wounds on the 5th inst. He was shol iu two places, besides some very severe cuts of tho sabre and pike. Gen. Dornberg tre ". ted him wilh the greatest kindness, and caused liini to be carried in a flelil bed to Boitzenburgli. Au article from Berg mentions, that on the occasion of the approach of the French, on the 31st of March, t'le whole of the male population, to the number of 3000, assembled with rifles, pistols, swords, pikes, and any irregular weapons they could procure. Tbe fol- lowing morning they weie on the heights, and were joined by a multitude from the neighbouring villages, which occasioned the enemy to withdraw. The Crown l'rince of Sweden has given formal notice to Ihe Duke of Mecklenburg of his intention lo inarch through that country, with 25,000 men for the li. be. A letter from Dover, dated April 21, says;—" A smack liasjust broughtin some passengers from Oslend, whom she took out of a foreign vessel— Mrs. Vauder- mereli and family, and Miss Huygarth j they left Ostend on Monday evening. The French are raising a large Dumber ol men Every person wliatevei, y. ho is capable ol bearing arms, is forced to march. Much discontent exists, owing to the severity of the con- scription, and disturbances have broken out against Ihe Government in more places than one. " P. S. I have just learnt, tliat in many places the conscripts are inarched away, tied together with ropes; that very great misery and poverty prevails in most of tbe departments. 11 would cost £ 500 for a substitute for the army." On the 10th iust. Charles Mumby, a young man of Louth, about IS years ol age, undertook lo run a mile iu five minutes, which be performed in four minutes and 52 seconds, to the astonishment ofa large concourse of spectators, who had met to witness this extraordi- nary feat of pedestrianisin : bets to a considerable amount were depending upon it. The same youth on the Thursday following, undertook In hop 200 yards at SOsuccessive bops, which lie completed at 74 with case. He has since matched himself to hop 40 yards at ten uccessive bops. Atria! Excursion.— Saturday last a Mr. Cameron ascended from Glasgow wilh a balloon, which had bee. i for some time in preparation The balloon went up in lino style, took a south- easterly direction, and dest. eti. led at Faluash, in the county ot Roxburgh, len liiih's west of Hawick, having travelled seventy- four miles in one hour and twenty minutes. The money collected ou this occasion did not cover tiie Aeronaut's e - lichees. Yesterday a Court of Common Council was held ( pur- suant to a Requisition presented lo the Lord Mayor), for Ihe purpose of agreeing to an Address to be presented to ihe Princess of Wales, congratulating her Royal Highness on her Complete Iriuniph over a conspiracy, ihe object of which was lodestroy licr Royal Higlinuss's life and honour. — The Lord Mayor having ordered the Requisition to be read, aud that having been done, Mr. Wailhman moved I hat a loyal and dutiful Addiess should be presented to her Royal H ighness the Princess of Wales, congratulating her on the complete triumph she lias gained over the toul aud malignant attempts other enemies lodestroy her life aud honour— Mr. Favell seconded tbe motion. Mr. Jacks then moved an . Amendment, congratulating her Royal Highness oil her complete triumph over tbe foul and atrocious conspiracy, entered into hy persons admitted to her presence, and who hf. d availed themselves of lhat opportu- nity, to endeavour to deprive her of ber life and honour; and leaving out certain expressions which, by implication, affected the l'rince of Wales:—- The amendment was negatived without a division, aud the original motion Carried, with only the hand of Mr. Moore held up against it. • The Sheriffs, attended 1) y Mr. Remembrancer, waited on her Royal Highness tiie Princess of Wales, at Blackhcath, this day, to know her Royal llighiiess's will and pleasure on llie subject of receiving the Address? when her Royal Highuess was pleased to give the following answer:— 4 I shall have peculiar satisfaction in receiving the Lord Mayor, Aldermen, anil Commons, at Kensington Palace, on Wednesday next, at nine o'clock ; but 1 cannot delay lilt then expressing how much 1 am gratified by seeing the prevalence of tiie same sentiments among all rank3 of Ibe people in tbe great city which you represent." A Requisition is now signing, addressed to the She- riff of Middlesex, to call a Meeting of the freeholders of lhat County, for the purpose of addressing the Princess of Wales, on the escape of her Koyai High- ness from the foul conspiracy formed against her life and honour.— A Requisition has been signed at Shef- field, for tbe same purpose, and this is the day appoint- ed for the Meeting taking place. A numerous Meeting was yesterday held at tbe City of Loudon Tavern, to lake iuto consideration ibe present circumstances of the Patriots in the North of Gerinauv— the Duke of Sussex in the Chair. His Royal Highness addressed the Meeting in an eloquent speech, iu which he dwelt oil the noble spirit which was now manifested iu the North of Germany} iu consequence of the glorious example of the Russian nation, and ihe success of their arms; and concluded witb recommending that a subscription should be opened for the purpose of supplying the Patriots with arms, and for milking provision foi the widows and orphans of the brave men who might fall iu the struggle.— Count Minister addressed the Meeting, and bore testimony lotlie excellent spirit which animated the inhabitants of the North of Germany. He read a letter from Hamburgh, which stated that Ihe French, to the number of 1500 men, were on their march towards Cuxhaven, when they received intelligence ofthe display of the popular feeling at Hamburgh, and re treated— A number of Resolutions were then passed unani- mously. Near £' 10,000 were subscribed in furtherance of the objects of the Meeting. * Yesterday a man was charged with an assault, under the following curious circumstances. Tbe complainant, a fe- male, resident on VV i'mbledon Common, keeps fowls, one of vi hich she said bad produced an fgg, on which w as embossed the following legend, u Bonaparte ivilt die this year." Big with the expectation of realizing incalculable sums hy this miraculous egg, she hastened lo her sister, who keeps the Sugar- loaf public- house, in Druy- laiie; to impart to her the wonderful tidings. The sister, astonished at the prophetic symbol, called in her neighbours and kinsfolks to be witnesses of lliis strange sight, amongst whom was the wicked wight, at tbe bar, who, with malice prepense, deter- mined to crush the mighty expectations oflhe complaiuant at one stroke,. and, by giving bei-. arm a gentle rap, caused her to drop this wonderful production, by which it was of course irrecoverably broken. Several persons bore witness to thc fact; but, whether the production was that uf Nal ure, or an Artist, they could not tell; nor whether thc com- plainant was herself hoaxed, or meant to hoax others ; hut, be that as it might, the ill- Spelt words proved that the author must have been a shocking orltiographist. Under all the circumstances, however, the Magistrate advised the parties to retire, and settle their difference. Tins they ac- cordingly did, but in a short time returned, the injured party insisting on £\ 0 as a recompense for the defeat of her expected profits ; but the Magistrate thinking the demand exoi bitaut, dismissed the prisoner-, ami left the complainant to brood over her disappointment. Gallant action4— Extract of a letter from G. Howard, master of the private ship of war John Tobin, to the owners Messrs fl ug'hes and Tobrns, of Liverpool, dated Bahia, i3th December, 1813. " GENTLEMEN,— I AM happy to inform you of my safe arrival at Bahia after a pleasant passage of 16 days.~ Noth- ing material occurred until the *} l « t November being in the latitude of 8. lo. S. aud longitude 33 30. W. and a degree or two to the eastward of Cape St. Augustine, at one o'clock in the morning being moonlight, a vessel was seen under a very heavy press of sail, iu our wake, ^ coming up fast. 1 con- tinued on our course until four o'clock, when 1 called all hands to quarters, took in steering « ails, stay sails, hauled up the courses, aud prepared for action, she being then on my weather quarter, and took in all her small sails aud pre- pared for action also. " At five o'clock I hauled up for her, being day- light, and hoisted Spanish colours, w ith a gun. At a quarter past five she, being within gun- shot, hoisted American ensign and peudaut, and gave us a shot. I thought it prudent to keep up the Spanish colours until he came a little nearer, as the John Tobiu's guns are short, and I did uot wish to M him know that we were English until my guns would tell. He soon gave us another shot between the fore and main mast. I then down wilh Spanish colours and displayed the British, which he no sooner saw than he began to fire away with rouud and grape shot as fast as lie could well load and discharge, and we relumed it as quick as he sent it, from a quarter before six until a quarter after nine o'clock, when we, both desisted, in order to repair damages, having Ihe chief part of my running rigging and sails shot away, also two guns disabled during the action. 44 At seven o'clock he shot away my ensign halliards, and our colours came tumbling down ; it was not long, however, before they were up again, and a second time shol away, on which, oue of my people voluuleered to go to ihe mizen lopmafct- head and nail them up, which was done, although the shot was flying in all directions. 1 then hoisted the red flag for iard, and gave ihein three cheers.— At a quarter be- fore ten we commenced firing again, and shot away his boom ; he then thought it the btst way to make off; and making all sail, kept close by the wind.— At a quarter after ten, she taeked and stood to the northward; the John Tohin tacked also after her, tiring as long as our guus would have any effect; but he soon got out of their reach, owing to his superior sailing.— At eleven o'clock 1 wore ship aud stood on my course, uot being able to come up with him." ments, the troops having been well and timely supplied with every requisite the district could afford.— 1 have fortu- nately not been deprived of the services of Lieut.

Thfi Gazette contains dispatches from Sir George Provost, dated Quebec, February 8, following letter from Colonel Proctor: SlR, Sandwich, January 25. In my last dispatch 1 acquainted'you, that the enemy was in ihe Michigan territory, marching upon Detroit, and that I therefore deemed il necessary that he should be attacked without delay, with all and every description of force within my reach. Early in the morning of the lQth I was informed of his being iu possession of Freuchtown, ou the river Raisin, 20 miles from Detroit, after experiencing every resistance that Major Reynolds, of the Essex militia, had ll in his power lo make, with a three- pounder, well served and directed bv Bombardier Kitson, ofthe royal ar- tillery, and the iniliiu, three of whom he had well trained to the use of it. The retreat of the gun was covered by a brave band of Indians, who made the enemy pay dear tor what he had obtained. This party, composed of militia and Indians, with the gun, fell back eighteen miles to Brown's Town, the - settlement of the brave YVyaudots, where I directed, my force to assemble. On the 21st inst I advanced 12 miles to Swan Cree k, from whence we inarch- ed to the enemy, atnl attacked bun at break of day on the 22d inst. aud after suffering, for our numbers, a considerable loss, the enemy's force posted in houses and inclosures, and which, from dread of tailing iuto the hands ofthe Indians, they most obstinately defended, at length surrendered at discretion ; the other part of their force, in aitcunpting to retreat by the vtay they came, were, 1 believe, all, with very few excepfions, killed by the Indians. Brigadier- Gen. Winchester was taken iu the pursuit by the Wyandot Chief Roundhead, who alt rwards surrendered him to me » You| wi| l perceive that I have lost no time; indeed it was necessary to be prompt in my movements, ns the enemy would have been joined by Major General Harrison in a few days.— The troops, the marine, and the militia, displayed great bravery, and behaved uncommonly well. Where so much zeal and spirit were manifested, it would be unjust to at- tempt to particularize auy ; 1 . fcannot, however, refrain from mentioning Lieut.- Colonel St Geoige, who received four wounds in a gallant attempt to occupy a building which was favourably situated for annoying the enemy ;• together wilh Ensign Kerr, of the Newfoundland regiment, who, 1 fear, is very dangerously wounded. The zeal ana courage oflhe Indian department were never more conspicuous than on this occasion, and the Indian warriors fought with their usual Urnv<' t y. ) : » m much indebted lo the different depart- SATURDAY, APRIL 24. The Russian official narrative of the action near Magdebur<> h has now arriyed ; from which it appears that the Russians, instead of being 44 repulsed," as stated in the French papers, drove the French at all points, forcing them to quit the right bank ot the Elbe ; and, instead of four battalions, the greater part of the whole French force in the neighbourhood was engaged. It was the Vice Roy, who commanded in person 24,000 men, and the victory thus obtained by the allies has already been attended wilh very important consequen- ces. The Vice Roy was driven back to Magdeburgh, Davoust was recalled from Luueburgh, and the enemy's dispositions deranged in every point. The Hamburgh Correspondent contains the official de- tails of tbe battle of the 5lh, by which it appears, that two of the enemy's regiments of cavalry were cut to pieces, 27 officers and 900 privates were made prisoners. The loss of the French in killed and wounded was 2000 men, including, among the latter, Generals Grenier and Grundler. This complete Victory was obtained near Mockern, 11 miles dis- tant from Magdeburgli, 011 the right bank of the Elbe, by the army of Count Wittgenstein. In order to judge of its importance,' we must revert to a late statement in the French journals, in which it is asserted, that Gen. Lauris- ton, with five divisions, formed of old troops drawn from' France, and furnished with a numerous artillery, and double sets of horses, toget her with a West phalian corps, and the first eor'ps of French cavalry, occupied Magdeburgh ; that a great military force was daily collecting at this point; that Davoust with the first, and Victor with the second corps were in the neighbourhood; Grenier, with Ihe. lith corps, before WitU- mberg; Regnier, with the 7th corps, ( besides Durutte's division, and a division of Bavarians), at Dresden; and Beauharnois, with tiie head quarters, at Leipsic. It was intimated, that this vast assemblage of troops awaited only the signal to pass the Elbe at various points, occupy Berlin, and carry all before them tothe banks of the Oder Afler a month's delay, during which he had been receiving daily accessions to his strength, Beauharuoie, it seems, thought it high time to distinguish himself as Generalissimo, by making a dash at the Prus- sian capital. A detachment of the allies, commanded by General Von Bo'rstell, had had the boldness to approach the right hank within a few miles of Magdeburgh, in order to prevent the garrison from laying the neighbouring coun- try under contribution. On the2d inst. a superior French force being sent out against this officer, he fell back, ac- cording to oiders; spreading his light troops on all the neighbouring roads to prevent information from being communicated to the enemy. This precaution was attend- ed with the happiest effects Contrary to what was usual in the Continental wars, the French have of late been kept in the greatest ignorance of their adversaries movements ; and the Allies have generally contrived to obtain accurate information of their plans. Thus it happened in Ihe pre- sent instance. Whilst Beauharnois, not knowing that Wittgenstein was so near him, was flattering himself lhat he should march on unimpeded to Berlin, the latter was taking the most skilful measures, first to surround, und then to tall upon him with his entire force. For this pur- pose he collected the corps of Von Yorck, and Berg, at Zerbst and Leitzk, au, 011 the great southern road from Magdeburg to Dessau, whilst those of Borstell und Buloiv were stationed at Nedlitz and Ziesar, rather to the North- ward of Magdeburgh. Both parties were to move forward simultaneously from the opposite points, and the one was to fall ou the enemy with impetuosity, the moment it learnt by a cannonade that the other had commenced an attack . The plan perfectly succeeded. The enemy, who had the advantage of the ground, resisted obstinately ; but he was successively driven, by the Allies, from the positions, which he endeavoured to maintain at three different villages, aud after having two regiments of cavalry entirely cut to pieces, he owed the preservation of his remaining force only to the intervention of darkness. In liie course of li e night he drew off at all poiuts, and did not even attempt to maintain the defiles, but retreated thro'them to Magdeburg, which fortress has since been closely blockaded on thai side Thus have the French been already t wice defeated by the united Russian and Prussian forces. The importance of this victory extends far beyond the actual loss of the enemy. It was an expedition | against Saxony and Prussia, led by the French General- , issimo, in person, that was defeated; it was an attempt to restore the French dominion over the minds of the German people, that was frustrated. The Russian army in Germany is to be increased to 350,000 men, and Count Tolstoy had passed Kiow with 100,000, including a great uumber of Ural Cossacks. The Fimperor Alexander removed his head- quarters on the 7th, from Kalitsch to Dresden The siege of Stettin was vigorously pressed, and numerous deser- tions took place from the garrison. The garrison of Glogau had made a sortie, in which six hundred of them, with two pieces of cannon, were cut off The defection of the Danes from the French appears now complete. Whilst General Dornberg was paying all thc respect to the rema ns of Morand, which his military rank demanded, Bonaparte, it is saidT was so inflamed with rage against the patriotism of Hamburgh and Lubeck, lhat he issued a decree of outlawry against all the inhabitants ot those cities without exception. ' Ihe Hamburghers on the other hand, declare, that rather than fall again under his yoke, they will send off their wives and families to Heligoland, and after defending their town to the last, wiff burn it down with their own hands. We are sorry to hear of a report that Count Bentinck, of Varel, has fallen into the hands of the Tyrant c we trust it will prove unfounded, A11 order has been issued by Government to the Commanding Officers of all the regiments of Local Militia, within thirty miles of London, to give up the accoutrements of their respective corps, for the purpose of being immediately forwarded to the North of Ger- many. This is a most judicious measure, calculated to afford the speediest supply to the brave German people. advance- A part of Darousf t corps was at Zell and Bruns- wick ou the 12th, in communication with the Viceroy.— They appeared to be apprehensive of an attack from thc combined Russians and Prussians on the Elbe, and of an attempt to get into their rear. 44 It was believed at Hamburgh that General Kleiat had obtained possession of Wittenberg— whether by capitu- lation or « ilqrm was not known. 44 The advices from Prussia concur in stating, that up to the 14th instant, the army under Count Wittgenstein, and that under General Blncher, were advancing without the enemy being able to check their progress. On the con- trary, his forces were falling back upon the Maine At Duben, the Russians had taken considerable magazines destined for the supply of Magdeburg. 44 The Senate of Hamburgh had received an assurance froth the Emperor'of Russia, that the whole military force of his empire should be employed in restoring the inde- pendence of Germany, whilst his own frontiers would be left in defence of the Militia, which had been called out and encamped.

When CHLORIS, like an Angel, walks Amid' the golden spring, And, fairer than the blooming flow'rs,! Of Nature's sweets will sing; How can I choose, but prize the hours, That fly on Rapture's wing? Her voice is like the morning light, That, from the amber gate, On sea aud earth divinity plays, Which vet no clouds abate: All Nature on her charms may gaze, And find in her a mate And can it be, so soft a form, A voice so rlear and sweet, Which e'en the Angels can beguile, With love shall never meet ? Though CHLOIUS know it not the while, Love reigns in her complete. With ev'ry flow'r, that sweetest blow, ( For fiow'rs to her are dear,) Her marble forehead we will crown, Till she outshine the year; Let JOVE come from Olympus down, And view our Beauty here! AGRICULTURE. From an anonymous Correspondent. We fee! much satisfaction in noticing another instance of the countenance and support which is given by our nobility to the promotion of Agriculture and Agricultural Science. On Tuesday, the 13th of Ap. TL, there assembled at the DAY- I10U- E near Newport, the principal Tenants upon the Marquis of Stafford's Lilleshall, Trentlram, and Wolverhampton Estate, to the number of near 100, for the purpose of witnessing the improvements which have been carrying on on that farm by Lord dower. — His Lordship came down from London to meet his Father's Tenants, and to preside on the occasion — There were exhibited the two- horse ploughs, wntch his lordship had brought up from Scotland, and with which all the heavy ploughing of tbe farm has been undertaken, to do which four horses heretofore were thought insofficient; the mode of harrowing with three horses abreast obtained the approbation of every person present. * ' I here was also exhibited the whole Operation of the drill husbandry system for Turnips, and the mode of cleaning thetn by horse hoeing.— A very powerful Threshing Machine, erected by bis lord- hip, to go with eight horses, was then worked for tire inspection of the Tenants, Ihe construction of which was particularly approved of, especially the size of the groat « heel antl the shape of the rakes, in both which it differed materially, and for the better, from the machines in common use in this country. A letter was read to the meeting from the steward on the Sutherland Estate, Mr. Sellor, to George Toilet, Esq. commending in the highest terms the well known implement, in this country called Twins and ithich was the invention of Mr. Firchild, one of Loid Staflord's Lilleshall Tenants; a striking illustration of the attention paid bv this noble family to ihe improvement ot their estates in both parts of the island, and of the great ad- vantage likely to arise from fhe rapid communication of ex- perimental knowledge between them. We cannot conclude this statement without expressing our unfeigned satisfaction at having witnessed this gratifying scene, which brings forward the landlord and tenant in one common exertion of imptoyement; antl we • congratulate the country, that a nobleman, who is so liberally spenduw his interne in the improvement of his Estates, should be so zeal- ously seconded by so respectable, so wealthy, and so enter- prising a borlv of tenantry ; and above all, that these improve- me nts should be headed by a person of such qualifications as Lord Glower We are gad to hear th„ t the Marquis's Tenants are another vear to start in competition with his lordship. The charge during that period will doubtless be striking among a set nf men who have fewer prejudices to overcome than any of their profession, and that in a few years these Estates will be among the most highly cultivated in the kingdom. A cold collation was served in the Loft, at which his lord- ship presided ; when the healths of the Marquis, of Lord Qower, and of the Marquis's tenantry, were successively/ drank, with feelings produced by a mutual confidence in each ' Other,' and a firm reliance that their exertions will be duly appreciated— a feeling which must extend itself to every in- dividual on tbe Marquis of Stafford's extensive Estates, when tbey see that their conduct when meritorious is so rewarded, anil that they not only obtaiq the approbation and notice of their landlord, but that of all their neighbours anil bruther tenantry. As an encouragement for future improvement, as well as a reward for past exertion, the Marquis of. Stafford is building the most substantial farm houses, making roads, and new modelling his English estates; while he is at the same time, at a vast expense, constructing harbours and bridges, esta- blishing coal works, and, in short, opening a new country to tbe enterprising spirit of thc nation on his Scotch ones; thus bestowing the most lasting benefits on his country, as well as upon those who have the happiness of living under him. FROM THE LONDON GAZETTE. WAR DEPAR. MENT— DOWNING STREET, APRIL 19. A Dispatch, of which the following is an Extract, has heen received from Gen. Sir J. Murray, Bart, dated Head- quarters, Castella, March 23, 1813. 1 have the honour to enclose Extracts of two Dispatches addressed to the Marquis of Wellington, by which your Lordship will be fully apprised of the present situation of this Army, and of the different trifling affairs which we have harl with the enemy. Extract of a Letter from Lieut. Gen. Sir J. Murray to Lord Wellington, dated Alieant, March 10. I had the honour, in my Letter of tbe 26th ult. to acquaint your Lordship, that I had taken the command of the division of the Meditterr'antan Army serving on the eastern coast of Spain Since my Letter of the stith Of February nothing of imporladce bas occurred. On tbe 3d inst. when reconnoitring the position of Alcoy, it became necessary to drive in the advanced posts.. The enemy lost in the action, as I have been informed, one officer killed, and about 20 men killed aud wounded. - The possession of Alcoy appeared to me of importance ; and having had a very accurate view ofthe position,! thought it possible, in carrying the place, to cut off Ihe corps stationed there. With this intention,' 011 the tith instant, I directed the inarch ofa part of the army on Alcoy, and attacked that post 011 the morning ofthe 7 th ; but by the unfortunate de- lay ofthe column which was destined to cut off his retreat, the enemy effected his escape ; had this column arrived a quarter of au hour before, Hot a mau could bave got off. Thc advanced guard of the column destined to attack tbe enemy in front drove him about six or seven miles, when I found the soldiers so much fatigued, thai, even had I wished, I could have pressed them no further. The country oyer which the enemy retired was extremely favourable for him, aud certainly might have been much better defended — He was on this account enabled lo dispose of bis killed and wounded, and I cannot state his loss. That on tbe part of the allied army is inconsiderable. I have much satisfaction in acquainting your Lordship, that, trifling as Ihese affairs have proved, they are sufficient to give me great confidence in the troops which Were engaged : and it is wilh peculiar pleasure 1 have noticed the state of Major- Gen. Wliitting ham's division of fhe Spanish army. for the generous treatment Captain Lambert and his Officers have experienced from our gallant enemy, Commo- dore Bainbridge, and his Officers.— I have the honour to be, & c.

St. Salvador, Brazil, Jan. 5. SIR,... With Ihe deepest " sorrow I have to inform you of the death of Cnpt. Lambert, on the 4th of January, of the wounds he received in the action with the Constitution American frigate; ill him the country has lost a most gallant and valuable officer, and myself ( who have served under his command some years) tlie'Oilicers and crew, a kind friend. His remain's were interred 011 tbe 5th of January with military honours, in Fort St. Pedro, anil it is with much satisfaction 1 add, that every respect was shewn on this occasion by his Excellency the Count Dos Areas ( Governor), and the Portuguese in general. I have the honour to be, &. c. ( Signed) H. D. CHADS, First Lieut. M Viliaume announced at Paris 011 the 4th, that § 65 gentlemen and ladies, desirous of entering into the mar- riage state, had charged him with the necessary pre- liminary negotiations, It has already been stated that Mr. Leslie had suc- ceeded in freezing mercury hy investing the bulb ofa mercurial thermometer wilh a thin coat of ice, antl exposing this to the joint effect of exhaustion and of sulphuric acid. Mr. Marcel has since effected the con- gelation <> f mercury with great facility and quickness, simply by substituting the evaporation of ether, instead of that of water, in the process in question. From Wistnar, Luberk, and other ports on the Baltic, several merchants in Newcastle have last week received communications highly interesting to the public. Notwithstanding the large supplies last year, in the north of Europe, their surplus stock of grain is still so immensely great, that wheat and oats have been offered in exchange for onr coals and manufactures upon terms so advantageous, that we may soon expect to have large supplies in lieu of our superabundant mer- cantile commodities. The finest, wheat has been offered to be delivered in that port at Ti shillings a quarter, or IS shillings a boll ; and the best oats at 20 shillings a quarter, or 5 shillings a boll. M. Cuvier, Secretary to the French Institute, has recently published a collection of all his papers, and memoirs 011 the fossil hones of quadrupeds. lie de- scribes 78 species, of which 49 are certainly unknown to naturalists in the present state of the worid, and 16 or IS doubtful. Theother bones found in recent earths, appear to appertain to known animals. In a prelimi- nary discourse, the author explains the method he has followed, and Ihe results he has obtained. He thinks it proved bj undeniable facts, that the earth has undergoen several great and sudden revolutions, of which the last is not of greater antiquity than five or six thousand tears. Eedestrianism.— Mr. Jameison, thc pedestrian, 011 Tuesday undertook for a wager of 20 guineas, to walk five iniies on the Hammersmith road, and back again, in one hour and forty minutes, and completed the task 111 five minutes less than the time allowed. A sre. lemiin in Dublin undertook, last week, for a bet of one hundred guineas, p. p. lo run four English miles in thirty minutes. A piece of ground, a quarter of a mile in length, in the Phoenix Park, was measured, and he started at twenty minutes past three o'clock. Notwithstanding the many turns, he performed the task in twenty eight mi ites ( being two minutes less than the given time), to the entire satisfaction of the judges, and with great ease to himself. On Thursday lasl, at Newcastle, George Wilson, the celebrated pedestrian, undertook for a trifling wager, to walk fifty miles in twelve successive hours in thc debtors'yard of Newgate, being thirty three feet by twenty five and a half, which, to the great astonish- ment of the spectators, he performed five minutes within the time, having walked the last six miles in one hour, twenty minutes, forty six seconds— an effort in so circumscribed a situation, unparalleled in pedealriau- The Attorney and Apothecary — As two of these " entlemen were sitting together in a public house, the ^ Doctor began lo reproach the Attorney with the num- ber of strange words which the law indulges in, viz, " halms corpus, fieri facias," & c. & c. and amongst others, asked, how or what was meant by the words " docking an entail?" " Why, Doctor," replied tiie A Hornet, " it is doing what you will not do with your 1 Sfiet'. ti — it is suffering irrrcoven/." Extract of a Letter from the same to the same, March 23. Tn my dispatch of the 10th inst I had the honour to inform your Lordship, lhat I had found it expedient to drive Ihe enemy from Alcoy, and tooceupy that place with a strong division of the allied army. In consequence of this movement, Marshal Suchet quitted Valencia, and has assumed the command, in person, of the troops of the right bank of the Xucar. He appears to have drawn from Ibis division of bis army nearly all the disposable force w hich he basin the neighbourhood of Valencia. Finding that the enemy was concentrating his force, I assembled the allied army. Marshal Suchet has reinforced his right, and has a stroug force at Onteniente, Mogente, and Fuente del Iliguera. Since I had last thc honour of addressing your Lordship, there have beeu several trifling affairs with the enemy. Gen Whittingham has forced him to retire heyoud the Puerto de Albavda, with a very considerable loss. In this affair, which Gen. Whitlinghatn conducted with great judgment, and ill which Ihe Spanish troops behaved wilh great gallantry and order, the General was slightly wounded, as were an officer and seven men. In a reconnoitring party on the same day, conducted by Major Gen. Donkin, Capt. Jacks, and the foreign troop of light cavalry, Capt. Waldron, and the grenadiers of the 2d, 97th, aud Lieut. M'Dougall of the Adjutant- General's Depart- ment, had an opportunity of making a spirited attack on the enemy's post, which was carried in the presence ofa battalion drawn up as spectators. We suffered uo ioss ou this occasion, but killed some of tbe enemy, and took a few pi isouers— Before I conclude this letter I beg to add, that, since 1 have beeu in co- operation with General F. lio, 1 have found his Excellency most anxious to forward every object 1 have in view : il is impossible too highly to extol his zeal, or the readiness with which he meets my wishes. \ ADMIRALTY- OFFICF, APRIL 20 [ Transmitted by Admiral Dixon.] United States' Frigate Constitution, off St. Salvador, Dee. 31, 1812. SiR,— It is w ith deep regret tliut I write you, for the in- formation of the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, that his Majesty's ship Java is no more; after sustaining an action 011 the 29th instant, for several hours, with the American frigate Constitution, which resulted in the capture and ultimate destruction of his Majesty's ship. Captain Lambert being dangerously wounded in the height of the action, the melancholy tai'l- of writing llie detail devolves on me.— On the morning ofthe 29th iust. al eight A. M. off St. Salvador ( coast of Brazil), the windatN. E. we perceived a strange sail; made all sail in chase, and soon made her out to be a large frigate ; at noon prepared for action, tire cliaso not answering our private signals, and tacking towards us under easy sail; when about four miles distant she made a signal, and immediately lacked and made all sail away upon the wind. We soon found we had the advantage of her in sailing, and came up with her fast, when she hoisted American colours; she then bore about three points on our lee bow. At 50 minutes past one P. M. the enemy shortened 6ail, Upon which we bore down upon her; lit 10 minutes past two, when about half a mile distant, she opened her tire, giving us her larboard broadside, which was not returned till we were close on her weather bow Both ships now malicetlvred to obtain advantageous posi- tions, our opponent evidently avoiding close action, and firing high to disable our masts, in which he succeeded too well, having shot away the bead of our bowsprit with the jib- boom, and our running rigging so much cut as to I prevent our preserving the weather gage.— At five minutes , past three, finding tbe enemy's raking fire extremely heavy, Capt. Lambert ordered the ship to be laid 011 board, in which we should have succeeded, had not our fore- mast been shot away at this moment, the remains of our bow- sprit passing over bis tafi'rail: shortly after this the main lop- mast went, leaving tbe ship totally unmanageable, with most of our starboard guns rendered useless from the wreck lying over them.— At half- past three our gallant Captain received a dangerous wound ill the breast, and was carried below ; from this time we could uot fire more than two or three gutis until a quarter past four, when our mizeu- mast was shot away; the ship ibcn fell off a little, and brought many of our starboard guns to bear: tbe ship's riggiug was so much cut that he could not now avoirl shoot- ing a bead, whicb brought us fairly broadside and broad- side. Our main- yard now went in the slings; both ships continued engaged in this manner till 35 minutes past four, I we frequently 011 fire in consequence of the wreck laying 011 the side engaged. Our opponent now made sail a- head out of gun- shot, where he remained an hour repairing bis damages, leaving us an unmanageable wreck. Every exertion was made by us during this interval to place the ship iu a slate to renew the action. We succceded in clearing Ihe wreck of our masts from our guns, a sail was set on the slumps of ttie fore- mast and bowsprit, the wea- tber- hnlf of the main- yard remaining aloft, Ihe main- tack was got forward in the hope of gelling the ship before tbe wind, our helm being still perfect; tbe effort unfortunately proved ineffectual, from Ihe main- mast falling over the side, from Ihe heavy rolling of the ship, which nearly covered the whole of our starboard guns. We still waited the attack of tbe enemy, be now standing towards us for that purpose; on liis coining nearly within hail of us, and from his manoeuvre perceiving lie intended a position a- hcad, where he could rake 11s without a possibility of our returning a shot, 1 then consulted the Officers, who agreed with myself that our having a great part of our crew killed aud wounded ; our bowsprit end three masts gone, and several guns useless, we should not be justified in wasting the lives of more of those remaining, who, I hope their Lordships and the Country will think, have bravely defended his Majesty's ship. Under these circumstances, however reluctantly, also minutes past five, our colours were lowered from lire stump of the mizeu- mast, and we were Inkeu possession of, a lutle after six, by the American frigate Constitution, commanded by Commodore Baiu- hridge, who, immediately after ascertaining the slate uf the ship, resolved ou burning her, whicb he harl the satisfaction of seeing done as soon as the wounded were removed. Annexed I scud you a return of the killed and wounded, and il is w il h pain 1 perceive it so numerous; also a statement of Ihe comparative force of Ihe two ships, when I hope their Lordships will not think the British flag tarnished, although success has not attended us It would be pre- sumptuous in me to spenk of Captain Lambert's merits, who, though still in danger from bis wound, we entertain the greatest hopes of his being restored lo the service and his country — ll is most gratifying lo my feelings to notice the gallantry of every Officer, seaman, and marine 011 board; in justice to ibe Officers, I beg leave to mention them individually. 1 can never speak too highly ofthe able exertions of Liculs. Hervingham aud Buchanan, and also Mr. Knhili » sni, Master, who was severely wounded, aud l. ieuts Mercer and Davis, ofthe Royal Marines, the latter of w horn also was severely wounded. ToCapt. J Marshall, It. N. who was a passenger, I 11111 particularly obligetl for his exertions and advice throughout thc action. To Lieut. Aplin, who was on tbe main- deck, aud Lieut. Saunders, who commanded ou the forecastle, 1 also return mv thanks'. 1 cannot bnt notice the good conduct nf the Mates and Midshipmen, many of whom are killed, and the greater part wounded. To Mr. T. C. Jones, Surgeon, and bis Assistants, every praise is due for their unwearied assiduity iu the care ofthe wounded, Lieut. Gen. Hislop, Major Walker, and Capt. Wood, of his Staff, the latter of whom was severely wounded, were solicitous to assist and remain on the quarter- deck — I cannot conclude Ibis letter without expressing mv grateful acknowledgments, thus publicly. The Prince Regent has been pleased to grant to the Hon. W. J. F. Vane, Representative for Winehelsea, second son of the Earl of Darlington, by Katherine Margaretla his late wife, daughter and coheiress of the late Duke of Boll on, his Majesty's royal licence to take the surname, and also bear the arms of Powlett.

The Cossack made his appearance lately, 011 horse- back, in Hyde Park, exhibiting several evolutions, with great dexterity, and shewing his national manner of charging with the lance. The company received him with loud acclamations, and many fair ladies gave him their hands to shake from their carriages. P. Buller was lately tried at the Home Circuit, in Ireland, before the Honourable Justice Fox, for the wilful murder of his wife: The evidence being closed, the learned judge made such necessary observations as arose from the facts sworn to ; and the jury retired for a considerable length of time, and then retooled a verdict of Guilty, but recommended him to mercy.— Court— On what ground ? Foreman— The habitual in- toxication of his wife*.— Court— Have you any doubt of his guill? None, my Lord.— The prisoner was called up lo receive judgment. His Lordship then pronoun- ced the usual sentence of execution and dissection.— The prisoner was executed tin Monday se'nuight. A person in Dumfriesshire has invented a double- headed plough, for tilling steep or hilly ground.— This plough does not turn round, but has a rod that conducts the horses from one etrd of it to the other— of course they only turn round, the ploughman having nothing lo shift on the plough, all being made completely fast.— This plough will turn as much land, and wilh nearly as milch ease to man and horse, in the same time, as the common plough on level land. It is now at work 011 the farm of Shawhead, and answers the purpose completely. This construction is stronger, with a little more addition of weight, than the common plough. The furrows arc across the bill. At Mold assizes, Robert Thonir. s, alias Robert Jones, was tried on two indictments for horse- slealiug, found guilty, and sentenced tu death. At Merioneth Great Sessions, at Bala, John Haywood, a native of Yorkshire, was put to the bar, charged w ith having uttered four forged £ 5 Bank of England notes, in payment for a horse, ntTrawsfynydd, aud one to Mr. Evans, of the Golden Lion, at Dolgelley, iu February last. There were more lhan 30 witnesses lo appear against him lor the same offence, from different parts of the Principality; up- wards of 40 forged notes were found upon him hv Mr. PI ' ice, of Rbiwlas, and Mr. Oakeley of Tanybwlch, by whose activity he was apprehended— he pleaded guilty, and was ordered for execution on the 6th of May Edward Davies, convicted of having in November lasl, stolen a flock of geese from a farmer near Corwen, and sold them again to a person near Wrexham, in whose custody they were found— fo be transported for seven years. Thomas Edwards, a native of Ludiow, took his trial at | these Sessions for the murder of Mary Lewis. There was a 1 long chain of evidence, which left 110 possible doubt as to I his guilt; the principal witnesses were— Grace Pugh, who saw the prisoner within three fields of Penrhvn Issa, Ihe uame of Ihe farm house where the murder was committed, between 11 and 12 o'clock, on Monday, 71I1 Sept. called at Penrliyn Issa, saw Mary Lewis baking oatmeal bread alone in the house, stopped with her half an hour and re- turned home.— Thomas Davies, saw the prisoner about three o'clock in Ibe afternoon of the same day, coming out of a wood near Penrhyn Issa, and appeared to avoid liirn ; the witness asked him what were the scratches on bis face? Ihe prisoner said he had been gathering nuts, and had fallen among some briars and thorns.— Ow en Parry saw t he prisoner about five o'clock the same evening; asked him how he became wet, and what were Ihe marks on his face ? he first said became through the river; tbe witness had uot heard of llie murder, but suspected from his appear- ance that he had been fighting ; he I hen said that a child scratched his face by playing w itli him ; he afterwards said it was by shaving; he had marks of blood 011 his Clothes, which tbe prisoner endeavoured to conceal. Ann Roberts, with whom the prisoner lodged, said, that she observed blood 011 his trou sers and shoes when he came home at six o'clock ; be bid the trowsers under Hie bed, also his shirt— Evan Pritchard said that the prisoner had often remarked while at work, that there was plenty of money at tliat house, pointing to Penrhvn Issa. — Mr. Lloyd, of Carfaes, said lhat he beard in common with all Ihe neighbourhood of Ihe murder, and went in pursuit of Ihe prisoner, who had absconded; caught him in endea- vouring to cross the sands to Carnarvonshire; on searching him they found in his under w aistcoat pocket, a silver w atch and a pocket book, w ltich were produced al Court, , of Penrhyn Issa, said that the watch and pocket book were in his bureau the morning of the 7th September, anrl 011 dis- covering the poor girl weltering in her blood, found that the bureau had been broken open, and two pocket books, one Containing upwards of £ 30. in notes, the other his land- lord's and. other receipts, aud the silver watch then shewn liim taken away.— The Jury without hesitation, fofeud him guilty,— He was sentenced by Mr. Justice Leycester, to be executed, which took place accordingly 011 a temporary gallows, near tbe new County Gaol, at Dolgelley, on Satur- day, tbe 17th inst. He appeared indifferent as to his fate, both al his trial, and at tbe fatal tree, and was launched into eternity iu tbe presence of a vast number of spectators. Robbery at the Marchioness of Dc- xnshire's.— Tuesday being appointed for the examination of the ten persons in custody for being concerned in this extensive robbery, Ihe office was crowded to excess, particularly by persons of high distinction, among whom was the Duke of Sussex. At 12 o'clock, the following persons were placed at the bar, via, Joseph Richard- son, Levy Hart, Mary Hart, Sarab Cohen, James Franklin, Reuben Joseph, Dinah Joseph, James Simons, Sarah Simons, and Nathan Simons. Richardson, it appeared, had been the principal executor of this robbery, although not the planner of it. He is supposed to have committed a number of daring robberies, and has broke out of two uf the best secured and strongest prisons in this country— he is a native of Chester. A gentleman present 011 Tuesday, who has seen Bonaparte, identified him as the strongest resemblance of him he ever saw. Some lime since, he committed r, very great burglary in Lancashiie, for which he was taken and lodged in tbe New Bailey prison, in Manchester, and was confined in a cell which was secured by cast iron bars. He contrived to have a tailor's goose brought in to him ; his object was to break the iron bars with it, but he was afraid to use it, on account of the noise it woultl make; but at length be hit upon the stratagem of striking the bars with the goose exaotly at the 1 time a very large clock there was striking tbe hour ; and after encountering a variety of other difficulties, he at length effected his escape, and was not heard any more of till he was taken into custody for breaking open and robbing the houses of the Earl or Besborougb and Lord Crewe, for which he was coormitted to the House of Correction, Colilbatbfielrls, when he was confined in a cell, in the tipper part of the prison; hfit being a stone- mason by trade, he contrived to take op a stone of the floor, and worked his way through into the hemp- room From thence into tbe yard and garden, when he fastened some stones to some ropes whicb he procured in the oakum- room, and platted together, he then contrived to throw them to Ihe top of the wall of the prison, where there is a clievemx de frhe; the stones hung to the iron spikes sufficiently loug to enable bim to raise himself three times 1 several yards; but falling each time, he found himself mttcn injured, and has spit blood ever since. Ke was about, to return to bis cell in despair, when he discovered a ladder, locked and chained, both of whie. 11 he broke, and ascended to the top of the wall, and effected his escape, about two months ago, between five and six o'clock in tbe morning, after an exertion of upwards of five hours ; since which time lie is supposed to have committed six burglaries. Soon after his escape frorn this prison, Mr. Adkins, the Governor, re- ceived information that he frequently went to a shoemakers in the neighbourhood of the Seven Dials. He accordingly directedBeckett, one of the turnkeys, to watch theshoemaker's house; and on the 6th instant, about ten at night, he saw Richardson approaching him, near the corner of Tower- street, disguised in two great coats. He turned down Tower- street, and afler walking a few yards, he looked behind him, aud observing Beckett following him, he threw off bis coals, and set off running; but Beeket gaining ground on him, he threw his bat in him, supposed to be for ihe purpose of strik ing him in the eyes ; but Beckett still pursued him, till he got into Lil tle Red Lion- street, when a man, coming out of a public- house, ran against him by accident, and knocked him down. Beckett then seized him, and took him into a public house and scotched him, ond found Bank of England notes to the amount of £ 523, which he offered to give Beckett to let him go This, however, was of course refused, and the prisoner was conducted to his former lodgings. He then voluntarily communicated to the Governor, that he hail been concerned iri the robbery of the Marchioness of Downshire's house, and stated where part of the property was concealed. In consequence of this information, the Governor Adkins, his brother, and Beckett the turnkey proceeded, ns directed by Richardson, to Chandler street, Grosvenor- sqnare, and used the private signal at tbe bouse occupied by Joseph, a jetv. The door was opened by Joseph, expecting it to be Richardson only. Alight being procured, Mrs. Joseph was asked for two diamond rings which Richardson said she had, and ihey were part of tbe property stolen from tbe Marchioness of Down, shire's house. She positively denied having them ; the house was searched, but the rings were not found. They then went to the residence of J. Franklin, one ofthe prisoners, and in a back room on the ground floor, they found Franklin and Nathan Simons the elder, another of the prisouers, in one bed, after bursting the door open, and enquired if either of their names were Simons. Both denied il. Adkins then took oft'the night- cap of Franklin, and discovered that he was not Simons ; but on taking off Simons's cap, he ascer- tained that he was the man, and took them into custody ; and while Ihey were dressing themselves, Adkins asked Simons if any property in that room belonged to him, which he denied, except bis cloaths. The officer locked the door, took the key, and conveyed them to the House of Correction. Atterwards Adkins returned to the house, and found under the tied in which Simons and Franklin were sleeping, an old box con- taining a black silk purse, in which were found two diamond rings, four five guinea pieces, three two- guinea pieces, 79 guineas, 53 silver foreign coins, a broach and a gold watch, which were all identified by the Marchioness of Downshire, except the guineas. The following'day Adkins went to the house of Joseph, in Chandler- street, and took hiin antl his wife into custody, having received strong information that Joseph was a principal in committing the robbery, and Sittings appointed in Middlesex aud London, heforethe Right Hon. Edward LordEtlenborongb, Lord Chief Justice, & c. & c. in and after Easter term, 1813 -.— Wednesday last a duel was fought by two of thc French prisoners 011 board the Sampson prison- ship; lying in Gillingham Reach, when one of tfiem, in con- sequence, was killed. Not having any s<* ords, they attached to the end of two sticks a pair of scissars each. The deceased received the mortal wound in the abdo- men ; his bowels protruded, and yet he continued to parry with his antagonist while his strength would ad- mit; Afterwards ail application was made to the surgeon of the ship, who replaced the intestines and sewed up the wound, but he survived only a short time. The transaction took place below, in the prison, unknown to the ship's com pa . y ; the evidence, therefore, 011 the inquest, will be that of their own countrymen. On Saturday, as a poor boy, between five and six years old, was amusing himself by throwing stones over the Groyne, at Brighton, to tiie east of tiie Marine Library, his foot suddenly slipped and he fell headlong over into the water. A youth of the name of Bannis- ter, about 15or 10 years old, on observing the accident, plunged fearlessly into the brine to preserve the unfor- tunate hoy from drowning. The latter could swim, but the object of his solicitude entwined himself, in the cut', so firmly about his legs, that both were in the most imminent danger of perishing. At this critical juncture-, a young gentleman, not more than 1 5 or 16 years old, of tiie name of Cholmondeley, who observed their distressed condition at a distance, darted to their relief. In an instant, throwing off nothing but his coat, he plunged over the Groyne, and had the sinking vrrtims of the relentless element, in his youthful but firm aiiti resolute grasp, and, it gives us the sheerest satisfaction lo add, ina short time succeeded in swimming, with, and dragging both to laud. The brave and humane, couduct of this young gen lie III nil needs only to be known, to be universally admired and applauded Count IVoronzow.— The St. PetersburghGas-. ette con- tains the following traits, so hootirable to this Russian nobleman, Ihe early part t; f whose life was passed in this country, where his sister is naturalized, by mar- riage, as Countess of Pembroke. It is scarcely neces- sary to remind our readers, that the father of this gallant officer is Count Woronzow, who was for many years distinguished by the able manner in which hi: discharged the diplomatic functions at this Court. " Amongst the accounts published at the head- quarters of our army, is the following -. Major General Count Worouzow having been wounded in the battle of Boro- dino, had repaired for the re- establish ment of his health fo an estate of his in the Government ot Wladimir. Shortly afterwards, other wounded individuals passim- through the same place on their way to llie regular hospitals, the Count invited them to remain at his re- sidence till they recovered. Accordingly the numbers increased at last to 40 officers and 301) soldiers, all of whom were most cordially entertained at the Count's expense, and each according to his rank; the soldiers received their money and provisions as they would have done from Government, and even the horses' forage was distributed at the same time. Those who have since returned to the a my, feeling that they are in- debted to the kindness of the Count Wdronzow for their lives, speak every where with the liveliest grati- tude of their gallant protector, who, will; a truly paternal anxiety, himself superintended every thiii" relative to their cure " A Tragical Death.— Oil the passage of the Sophia from Bristol to Jamaica with the Cork convoy, she was becalmed three days, during which the crew and those on board amused themselves with the sharks that sur- rounded the vessel. At length a breeze sprung up, and preparations were made for getting under sail. This was not, regarded by a passenger, Mr. H Russell, pro- prietor of Caen Wood estate, St. George's parish, Jamaica, who standing at the cabin- window, was, by the sudden rolling of the vessel thrown out The acci- dent was no sooner known than every assistance was afforded, and the ship's boat lowered, but in vain. The numerous sharks abounding in that latitude were ob- served contending 011 the spot where he fell: a Iou « - track of blood marked the furrows of the waves: hut he appeared no more. Mourning— The colour descriptive of mourning dif- fers according to persons and countries. In Italy the women once mourued in white, and men in brown. In China they wear white; iu Turkey, Syria, Cappa- docia, and Armenia, celestial blue; in Egypt, yellow, or the colour ofa dead leaf; the Ethiopians wear grey? and in Europe the mourning colour is black — White is an emblem of purity ; celestial blue denotes the place U- •. — . - . ,- - ,,-•!• they wish to go to after death ; yellow, or the dead that bis wife had received part of the properly, well knowing | ea/ iniiicales that deatll ls tha ejlJ ol j h it to have been stolen. Thev were both sent to the House ot . .. . e 1. ., , r .. . r' Correction. A few days afler, Adkins received information that James Simons, the son of Nathan, was also suspected of being concerned in the robbery; when he went in puisuitof him to a house at Poplar, occupied by a Jew named Levy, where, on Searching Ihe premises, be found Simons concealed in a wash- house, and secuied him, and he was also sent to the House of Correction. A short time after this, Levy ap plied, by his Solicitor, lobe admitted an evidence, saying, he would tell ail he knew, and would give up the property that was concealed in his premises, which was acceded to. He slated, that a number of articles had been brought to his house by Sarah Cohen, ar. d delivered to his tvife, requesting her, for God's sake, to conceal them, or berjbrother would get into trouble ; which induced him to bury them amongst his coals. They consisted of a musical snuff- box, a blood- stone snuff- box, a diamond locket- watch, and a variety of other articles, all of which proved to be tbe property of the Marchioness! Mrs. Joseph has, since she has been in con- finement, admitted that she did receive two gold tings, and Otliei articles from Richardson, although she positively de* nied it at first, and lhat she gave them 10 her mother, Mary Halt. On application 10 her by Adkins, she denied having received the rings, nor could tbey be found 011 searching her house in Morunouth- street, bnt since she and her husband have, been in custody, she has confessed that she hatl the lings, and while Arlkins was searching her house, she handed ihem to her husband. Richaidson, during the time he was out ot the House of Coreetion till he was apprehended, was fre- quently at the house of Joseph, in Chandler- street, Grosvenor- square, where it is supposed the robbery was planned, from a knowledge Levy Hart, one of the prisoners, had ofthe house, by his going there to purchase old cloaths, and from his ac- quaintance with a servant who formerly lived in the family, wno informed him, that the Marchioness kept all her jewels, and her most valuable property, on the first floor. Their con- nection was very satisfactorily proved by an apprentice ot Hart, who stated, that Richardson, anri'otIters of the pr isoners, I I were at Ins master's house the night before the robbery, and eaily the next morning ; and they all breakfasted together. Richardson laid down on his master's ( Halt) bed in the day- time, having been up all night. The prisoner, Mrs. Simons, was ot Ihe party, antl went away in a coach, when it is sup- posed she conveyed away tbe stolen property. The part of the property recovered amounts to about ,£ 2000. Richardson tells every ihiug respecting the robbery, with great candour. and that mail falls as the leaf; grey signifies tile earth to which the dead return ; and black marks the absence of life, because it is the want of light. liot in Sheep.— The Nigra, or common Elder, which thrives in woods or damp hedges, in May or June produces white flowers, which are succeeded bv black berries. The plant is extensively useful; its wood beirif iiard and tough, is made into meat skewers, it is also employed by turners, as it works extremely well oa the lathe. Tbe leaves are eaten hy sheep, to which it is of great service when diseased by tilt; rot; for, if placed in a situation where Ihey can easily reach the hark and young shoots, they will speedily cure them- selves. According to Linnaeus, the plant is refused bv horses, cov\ s, and goats, though others assert lhat cow's eat it eagerly, BANKRUPTS^ APRIL 17.

Ordinary preached, what is generally called the condemned sermon, in tbe chapel of the county gaol — Prayers were read by the Rev. Rowland Hill, Rector of St. Mary's, and the Rev. William Fish made a most impressive and appropriate discourse from Numbers, c 35, v. 31—" Moreover, ye shall take no satisfaction for the life of a murderer, which is guilty of death: but he shall surely be put to death."— The language of thc Rev. antl highly respected Divine appeared to have due weight 011 lite miserable objcct to whom it was Addressed. Aware of the awful situation in which slie was placed, she seemed to feel that contrition for her enormous offences, so essential to true penitence. She was suffused ill tears during tbe service; and addressed herself wilh a religious fervency to the tribunal of the God of Mercy, and with a confidence, which we ivill charitably hope may be abundantly realized. After the sermon, which occupied near three quarters of an hour, she was removed to her cell, and resumed hei" wonted fortitude and composure. liaising the ff'htd.— The stagnation of trade, which is so generally felt by wholesale manufacturers and commercial travellers, has at least the advantage of inspiring uew modes of importunity, and elegant artifices of recommendation, A ludicrous instance of the success of well- directed invention occurred at Windsor last Week. A11 itinerant dealer in trinkets and ornaments being grievously pressed lo raise the wind, lelt several fashionable mourning articles for the in- spection of various shopkeepers till he should call again. He was 110 more heard of for a few days; but in the mean lime an elegant female bad visited Ihe various shops, in search ot ornaments of which she produced some specimens. Her orders would be large, as she had commissions to execute for Ladies at Court. Fortunately a traveller had left some of the precise articles a few days before, and Ihe tradesmen were in constant expectation of his return. The Lady was satisfied; ami, delighted with her success, she would wait patiently till the morrow. A few hours after the expected traveller was at hand ; it is unnecessary lo repeat the details ; suffice it, that he sold his goods to a considerable amount, wherever they hud found admittance, and decamped with his fair partner in high exultation ; but, unluckily for his honour, without paying his lodgings. uueuct) r Matthews, of Cheltenham, lancy- dress- maker.
