IN gratitude for the very extraordinary cure performed bv your invaluable medicine, I beg le. ave to state my ca<- c, and which I am desirous you should publish for the benefit of suffering humanity. From a bruise I got in my arm when shipwrecked, several large scrofulous ulcers were formed, ac- companied hy a running of very offensive matter, which in five years reduced me so weak that I was confined to my bed for 13 months ; during this time I made application to a number of the most respectable gentlemen of the faculty at this place anl at Newcastle, fiom whom I took great quantities of Medicine, but at length pronounced my case incurable, at the same time lamenting, that, on account of my exhausted state, they could not amputate my arm, the only possible hope they then had of prolonging my life, my appetite having quite left me. In this deplorable state, locking forward to my dissolution, I happily read in the Newspaper of the cures performed by yonr Drops; 1 sent to Mr. Appleby, Bookseller, your agent here, for oue bottle, from which 1 received incon- ceivable benefit; my appetite returning, and the ulcers in my armconsiderablybetter; anrl by takingtwo bottles more, I vvas restored to a good state of health, Ihe ulcers completely healed, and since which time 1 have continued perfectly well. The lamentable state to which 1 was reduced is vvell known in my neighbourhood. 1 am, Sir, your obedient bumble servant, DAVID M'CLEAN.

DEAR Sir— TO you I consider myself in Gratitude bound to make ah Acknowledgment of the Benefit I have re- ceived by taking the Ploughman's Drops, prepared by you. In consequence of an unfortunate connection, in a few days I found myself violently attacked with a Veneieal Disease. I made immediate Application to a Medical Gentleman of the first Respectability, who gave me Pills, & c. to take and make use of, which to Itiy unspeakable joy had ( as I thought) effected a Cure; but alas! I soon found myself deceived, the disease still lay innrv Body, and lias the cause nf my enduring restless Nights arid unhappy Days, till 1 most providentially heard of your invaluable Drops. Iu the Spring my Eyes became quite Dim and Weak, and it was the Opinion of myself and Friends, that I should soon lose the Sight of both. I fell down apparently Dead, and continued in that State near an Hour; I was attended hy a Physician and three other Medical Men ; I took their Medi- cines six Months, and doubt not but in tbat Time I took at least, a Wheelbarrow full. Instead of getting better I got worse and worse; my Feet aiid Legs swelled in a dreadful Mariner, and I looked to De3th only for Relief. I went to Liverpool with about ,£ 45 in my Pocket, in hopes of staving about a Fortnight with a Doctor, a- nd having his Advice, when to my Surprise, the good Man had the Modesty to ask me Seventy Guineas a Week, exclusive of Medicines — Finding it impossible for me to comply with his exorbitant Demand, I returned to Shrewsbury, attended by all the shocking Ideas of Self dest ruction. There Providence cast in my Way the Shrewsbury Paper, in which vva;! inserted the Case nf —— cured by taking the Ploughman's Drops. I immediately went to Mr, Wood, Printer, and bought a large Bottle ; iu less than three Days 1 gave away my List Shoes, 1 felt my Nerves braced, my whole Frame invigorated, slept soundly, arid ( I thank God) was soon convinced of the as- tonishing Virtues of your inestimable Medicine, the Plough- man's Drops, By taking one large and two small Bottles, I was perfectly cuied, and am now ( thank God) as hearty as ever I was in my Life. My family Connexions prevent my signing my Name in full, but this yon ate at Liberty to publish in whatever Way you think proper, and I am ready and willing personally to satisfy onv one who may think proper to a « k me. I am, dear Sir, your's, &, c. R. L. Hereford, lid January.

The letters by the Lisbon Mail, which arrived yester- day, were delivered this morning. The accounts from the army state, that the troops were in motion, but it was generally supposed the campaign would not be a fighting one, as the enemy were retreating. All the British and Spanish armies, it is said, will assume the offensive at the ssmo time, and act upon a general plan. Whilst Lord Wellington and Sir R. Hill approach the Douro, Sir J. Murray will compel Suchet to evacuate Valencia, and fall back oil Murviedra, which it is sup- posed he will defend. Strong hopes are entertained that the enemv will be obliged to evacuate Madrid. I The packet brought over twenty passengers, chiefly English Merchants, from America, who had arrived at Lisbou in licensed American vessels, not being permitted to quit the United States direct for England. Tliey re- present the American Government to be more inveterate than ever against this country; hopes, however, are entertained tbat something will be done in the course of the summer, to cool the hostilities of the enemy. Some rumours of an unpleasant nature were jester- day in circulation, said to have been brought by a trans- port from the Baltic; one was, that a letter from the Crown Prince of Sweden to Bonaparte had been inter- cepted by Lhe Russians, by which it had been ascer- tained that the former was certainly in the pay of Bona- parte. Another report was, tbat a Swedish Courier had been intercepted with dispa'ches from the Crown Prince to Bonaparte, containing the whole, plan of the ensuing campaign, ° Tbe following article, njiative to the movement of the French army, is extracted from the Gazette de France of tbe 27lh ult. : " PARIS, APRIL 26— They write from the Batiks ofthe Rhine, tbat every thing is in motion upon the points between the Rh iue and ihe Elbe— from the sea to the frontiers of Saxony and Bohemia; the Generals have effected their junction ; imposing and terrible masse, advance ; the troops evince much ardour, and the materiel of the army is perhaps more abundant than it ever was." The French Papers contain a report from Captain Bouvet, Of L'Aretheuse frigate, detailing the particulars of her cruize, and of her action witb the AmeTia, Ct. pt. lrbv, off tbe coast of Africa. The French frigate lost in the engagement £ 0 killed and 83 wounded. Tim consort ot L'Aretbnse, Le Rubis, was totally lost off tbe Isles de Los, in tlie beginning of February. The crew were taken on board the Serra, Portuguese jhip, which they had captured, and which wa3 afterwards destroyed, lit the course of their cruize Ihe frigate* captured fifteen vessels. By the last accounts from Germany, the French army was known to be 111 motion, Bonaparte having left Mentz, to direct its operations in person. His main force has passed the Thuringian Forest, and is now between the Saale and the Weier. It conshts of Marmont's, Nev's, Oudinot's, Souil's, and the Duke of Istria's di- visions. There are besides, two divisions under Beau- harnois, whose head- quarters, we believe, have been removed to WermgeroJe, nearer the Wester. Vabdammo has Dufour, St. Cyr, and Dumonceau's divisions at Bremen. Sebastiani'is between Zeli and the Weser. Davoust has marched to join Beauharnois. There can be little doubt of its being Bonaparte's intention to combine the operations of all these divisions, and make a great effort to dispossess the allies of tbe Mouths of tbe Weser, tbe Elbe, the Trave, and the Jahde. The Don Cossack.— Previous to the departure of Col. De Bach and the Cossack, who loft London for Harwich early on Saturday morning, tliey were in- troduced to the Prince Regent, who conversed for some time with the officer, and presented the Cossack with a black velvet sword belt, brilliantly studded with silver ; a handsome silver cartouche- box, with his Koyal Highness s cypher and crest; and a handsome sabre. By a letter from Prague, of the lath ult. we are in- formed, that the King pf Saxony still continued at Ratisbon ; and had not arrived at Prague, as has been reported. A great c one mine of strangers had arrived at Prague from the Confederation of the Rhine, and from Poland, to avoid the presence of the hostile Armies, Extract of a letter, dated Leipsic, April 10:—" I have no doubt lhat all Germany, 011 this side the lihinc, wiil be evacuated by the French in a short tinie. Haviu « - had au opportunity ot observing tbe despondence and ttnn illingncss of the uew raised French army, their want of artilldif, and still more of cavalry ; and, 011 the other hand, the complete state of the Russian and Prussian armies, bt.- rnirig for the opportunity of vengeance, I have no doubt but that the good cause w ill carry the day at last. It is not to be conceived how powerfully patriotism reigns in the hearts of the Germans; aud it would be impossible to record all the instances of great patriotic sacrifices " The greatest exertions are now making at Woolwich lo send off an immense battering train to the North of Germany ; and Colonel Congrevo bas received orders to complete a rocket equipment, on a large scale, for the same purpose. Mr. H. Thornton has addressed a letter to the Chair- man of the Borough Meeting, explanatory of tbe reasons which induced him to decline going up with the Address to tliePrincess of Wales.—" The passage in the Address," says Mr. T. " to which I more particularly feel that I cannot make myself a party, is that, in which, after saying " that the most foul and diabolical charges" were " basely exhibited" against lier Royal Highness, it is added, that tbey were " unconstitutionally entertained, illegally enquired into, and sophistically dismissed."— This passage may be considered as implying a censure, first, against Ihose who, when the gravest charges were already made, were in any way concerned in referring them to individuals of his Majesty's Privy Council, or in advising that tbey should be so referred, a measure which I conceive to have become not only justifiable but even necessary, with a view to the public welfare' to the peace of bis Majesty's own mind, and thai of liis family, and to the full re- establishment of the character of her Royal Highness. The passage also manifestly conveys a strong censure on those Privy Counsellor.', who, in consequence of this reference, proceeded, i: i the first instance, " to enquire into" the charges, lt seems also to include, by its generality, a reflection on as many Privy Counsellors as afterwards " entertained" or enquired into tliern ; and in its concluding sentence it is, as I understand it, distinctly pointed against lbs House of Commons, on account of their reluctance to entertain the same general subject. This unwillingness of the House lo come to any specifie vote upon it, arose, as 1 conceive, partly from a persuasion, tual the suspicions tmd consequent examinations, then supposed to be subsisting, which were so derogatory to the honour and so painful to the feelings of her Royal IIi- lines t, would immediately cease, and partly from a stfuno. of the difficulty which was found to present itself in adopt- ing any measure which was consistent with the proper1 functions of the House of Commons, and adequate to the object which was professed." Sir W. Garrow yesterday took the oaths of oSice, as his Majesty's Attorney- General, before the Lord Chan- cellor, at Lincoln's Inn Hall." He afterwards waited upon the Chief Justices and other Judges, at their houses, with his patent. At the interview which took place on Mon ? a , between the Chancellor of tiie Exchequer, and the Deputation from the Slock Exchange, the former pledged himself not to bring forward the Loan for the present year until after the g8tli instant. lt is rumoured, that a member of tho House of Commons has it in contemplation to move for a fresh examination of the Physicians in attendance upon his Majesty. According to an Evening paper, a report is in cir- culation, that " the Princess of Wales lias been ad- vised to prefer an indictment for a conspiracy again it Sir J. and Lady Douglas."— The same paper ails, We know not whether this be true, but we hav' every reason to believe, tHat not the least hindrance or opposition would be made, in any quarter, to her Royal Highness's carrying such au intention into ex- ecution."

Last night two Heligoland mails arrived, hy which advices from that Island to the 3d, ant' Hamburgh pa; « - rs to the lst inst have been received They bring [ he gratifying intelligence that Saxopy has joined tjie common cause, 10,000 Saxon troops- under General Thieiman, having leftTorgan, to unite with the Russian and Prussian forces. The King was expected to return to Dresden. The fail of Dantzic is unconfirmed. In addition to the Saxon troops, which Have joined the sSandard of independence, those of Weimar and Gotha have followed the sanfe example. Bavaria, " it is, said, wishes to remain neutral. The French were at Har- burgh, oposite Hamburgh, and had obliged the Rus- sians and Hanseatic Legion to retire to the right of the Eibe.

A variety of rumours were yesterday again in circa latiou with res-' Cft to the Crown Prince of Sweden. Some say that the Swedish Iroops already landed in Pomerania have been recalled, and that, the Crown Prince had abaudoneii his intention of heading an army in Germany. Another report is, that a Swedish Courier has been intercepted with dispatches from the Crown Prince to Bonaparte, contacting the whole plan'of the ensuing campaign. We look upon the last report as very improbable ; but are apprehensive that there is little prospect of a Swedish force of any magnitude co- operating with the allies during the present campaign.

The execution took place yesterday morn- ing,' A letter from Gottenbnrgh, dated April 5" 6, says— « The Danes have conducted themselves with a total disregard of all justice and decency, capturing and seizing our vessels, while we have paid respect to their flag. Notwithstanding the rupture apprehended with them, up lo the present moment nothing has been done against them, either in the way of embargo or direct hostility. The Crown Prince ol Sweden has not arrived to review and superintend the embarkation of the Iroops. They are all in readiness 5 but it is now said that his Royal Highness will not be here for several dais." The Russian Emperor has appointed M. Kotzebue a Privy Counsellor. The garrison of Thorn consisted of 400 Poles, 2500 Bavarians, and only 90 Frenchmen. The fruits of the capitulation have been 20O pieces of cannon, and the besieging army is now at liberty to procecd to Danlzic. Nearly the whole of the Bavarians and Poles hav'e since enlisted under Ihe patriotic standard. An article dated St. Petersburgli, March 27, says, " In the governments of Moscow, Witepsk, and Mo. hilow, 250,000 dead bodies of the enemy have aheady been burned ; and in the city of Wilna and its environs 58,000. The bodies of the Russian soldiers, which are distinguished by the cross worn, according to the cus- tom of the Greek Church round their necks, have been all buried." By a letter from Madrid, of the llth ult. it would appear that the Spaniards were at that lime very san- guine in their expectations that the enemy would im- mediately evacuale that capilal; but no subsequent accounts have been received of their actual retreat. New York papers to the 20th of March reached town Inst night. Their contents are unimportant, except lhal they state our squadron is off Norfolk, and threa- tening lo make a landing. The Americans in that quarter were shipping off their property, and all were in bustle, in order to defend themselves. Sir G Prevost, it is slated, has arrived at Kingston, front Quebec, at the head of 8000 troops, and it was expected would cross, and attempt to destroy the flotilla at Sacketl's Harbour. Government it is said, has come to the determination of issuing licences—" for the importation from any port of the United States of America not blockaded, direct lo a port in Great Britain specified, in bona fide neutral vessels, whose names are specified, such American products as are by law permitted to be im- ported ; these licenses being granted without the stipu- lation of any previous export from Greal Britain.

Notwith- standing an immediate search, l. hey succeeded in secret- ing and carrying off the property. Wednesday J. Goodman and R. Hayward, who were living at Bristol with Huffey White, were re- examined at Bow- street, charged with robbing the Canterbury bank to the amount of upwards of .£ 8000, A man, who had been admitted an evidence, stated, that he had purchased a quantity ol notes from the prisoners, which they told him were out of the Canterbury Bank, in the month of April 1811, which was about the time it was broke open. His evidence was corroborated by a woman who cohabited with him, who stated, that she had paid the prisoners £ 100, in part of payment fo the purchase of the Union Canterbury Bank notes.— Mr. Birnie being of opinion that it was necessary that some of the notes found on the witness should be identi- fied as those stolen, committed the prisoners for further examination. K. Leith started at Durnford, Herts, on Monday last, for a wagger of 100 guineas, to perform 100 miles in 20 hours, on a five mile piece of ground, lie started at the rate of five miles an hour, and performed that distance regularly for eight hours ; alter resting a quar- ter of an hour, he resumed his journey, and kept steady at his pace another five hours, having done 05 miles, when he appeared fatigued, and made a halt of half an hour. He got on to 90 miles in 18 § hours, but was unable to proceed further, and the match was lost. At the late Ponlefract quarter sessions, on Tuesday, a country gentleman, who had a tended to give evidence in a cause, was arrested by a Sheriff's officer, under a writ of exec lion, on his return home, and before tie had reached his own residence ; but having pleaded his protection as a witness, the officer was prevailed upon to return with him to Poiitefrnct. As soon as the cir cumstance was made kntiwn to the Court, the officer was ordered to release his prisoner, and on his hesitat- ing to comply with this mandate, he was ordered into custody, and the gentleman set at liberty. On Thursday the officer ( J. Miller) wasbroughtagain into Court, and having expressed some contrition for his offence, he was discharged from his imprisonment. Sir J. Ingleby, • on this occasion, said, the Court wished it to be clearly untie, stood, that all witnesses were protected by the law, both in coming to give their evidence, during their attendance for that purpose, and until a reasonable time had elapsed for their return to their own residence; this was necessary, he observed, for the purpose of public justice ; and that Court would, to the utmost of its power, protect all witnesses who should come before it; and any officer presuming iu future to offend iu like m inner, would be punished in a more exemplary j mawu r. FRIDAY, MAY 7. A mail from the Mediterranean arrived this morning, brought to Falmouth by the Hinchinbroke. The packet sailed from Trepani on the 26th of March, at which time accounts had beeu received there of a se- rious disturbance in Sicily, which had not subsided when the last advices left that island. A reinforcement of troops had arrived at Palermo from Malta, and three ships of the line from Mahon, which were moored with their broadsides facing the city, in readiness to batter it if occasion should require. The disturbance appears to have been occasioned by an attempt, on the part of the old king, to resume his authority. One Cadiz, two Lisbon, and one'Corunna mail arriv- ed this morning. Accounts " from Cadiz assure ns that the disturbances at Palermo had been quelled, the old king having formally resigned his authority. The queen had gone to Sardinia. The Lisbon papers contain a dispatch from Lord Wellington,- of tfie 7th, bat of no importance, as we have later accounts from his Lord- ship. Castatlos had arrived at'Ciudad llodrigo, and was expected to transfer his head- quarters to Ahlea del Obispo.— Reinforcemehts from the army of reserve in Andalusia, and other quarter's, were marching to jv. iin the allies. The accounts from Alicant are to the 29th of March. Gen. Murray had his head- quarters at Castello; and Elio al Montforte. Nothing new had occurred. Kew York papers to the 24th of March were this morning received in town. , Mr. Crawford, a senator, has been appointed ambassador lo France, in the room of Joel Barlow, The American papers say, it is the intention of Admiral Warren to scour all their naviga- ble rivers, and destroy their shipping; we do not learn, j hbwever, that he had commenced aclive hostilities. The orders for removing alien enemies from New York were strictly, carrying into effect. The 10 millions loan is understood generally to have failed. Private letters were yesterday received from Ham- bfsrgh of the 3; 1 inst. They express a considerable degree of alarm lost the French should cross the Elbe, which, we trust, however, will prove groundless. An article from Breslaw, of the 24th ult. states, that Bona parte had positively rejected the terms of alliance prof- fered to him by Austria, and that the latter hud; in consequence, resolved to set on foot ah army of 130,000 men in Germany, and another of 30,000 in Upper Italy. That Austria will, at all events, maintain her neutrality, we think, may now be calculated upon with tolerable certainty. YVe have been favoured, thro' a private channel, with a decree of the Emperor Francis, of the Ifiih ult. placing at the disposal of the Minister of the Finances the sum of 45 millions of flo- rins, to be issued in bills, redeemable in 12 years out of the land- tax raised in the Austrian provinces.

The damages in this ease were not so out- tageous as to warrant granting a new trial, and there were no other grounds oil w hich to do il."— Application refused. The King v. Creevey.— Mr. Brougham moved for a new trial HI this cause, on tbe ground of tbe misdirection ofthe Learned Judge who tried it. lt was ail indictment against the defendant, a Member of Parliament, for Ihe publication of a speech made by him in Parliament, iu wbich speech was contained a libel upon Mr. Kirkpatrick, the prosecutor. The Learned Counsel stated, it would be making his best to state what passed at the trial previous to ground of objection. The principal w itness was" the Proprietor ofthe Lancaster Paper, who proved that he received tbe speech iu an envelope frotn the defendant, which envelope he bad lost; but iu that the defendant had staled, that several incorrect reports of his speech had got abroad, and, amongst others, in the Lancaster Paper; and Ihat therefore be had enclosed a more correct report. The defendant then wished to put off the trial, ou tbe ground of Ihe absence uf Mr. Bennett, a Member of Ihe House of Commons, who would have proved that the report was i- i substance what Mr.' Crccvey had said in his place in the House of Commons. j The Learned Judge, in summing up, told the Jury tha! they h ul two questions to consider, first, whether the paper was defamatory of the prosecutor; and next, whether Die defendant published it Mr. Brougham now moved for a new trial, on th* authority ofthe cases of Cuniiie aud Wilkes, aud the King v. Wright, when it was held that a true report of a proceeding in the Court of Law, or a Report of the House of Commons was no libel. He coil- tended, at great length, that a Member of Parliament was protected for what lie said in the House in Ihe disch. irge of iiis puhlio duty, and that it was important the Public, and more particularly his constituents, should have a correct account of his conduct in Parliament. lie then quoted the opinion of Lord Kcnyon, in the cause of the King i>. the Earl of Abingdon, that the question was ouly whether the publication was fairly made, or a mere pretext lo cover a defamatory intent. Having argued these topics at consi- derable extent, he concluded by moving for a rule to shew cause why there should not .' je a new trial. The Court expressed their opinion, that the verdict was perfectly right, and that it could never be endured that a Member of Parliament was to publish of any oue with impunity what he pleased, because he had before said il in the House of Commons.-— Rule refused. Mr. Creevey was in Court himself during the whole 6f the proceedings, accompanied hy Mr. Western, General Fer- guson, and the Hon. Henry Grey Bennett. FROM THE LONDON GAZETTE. WESTMINSTER, MAY 4', 181* 3. His Royal Highness the Prince Regent lias been pleased, in the name and on the bebaif of his Majesty, to appoint . Sir Wiliiani Garrow, Knighlt, his Majesty's late Solicitor- General, to be his Majesty's Attorney- General. The Prince Regent hits also been pleased lo appoint Robert Dallas, Esq: late Chief Justice of Chester, to be his Majesty's Solicitor- General. The Prince Regent has also been pleased to appoint Robert Richards, Esq. one of his Majesty's Counsel, to be Chief Justice of Chester. [ The Gazette also contains accounts of the following - captures:— the I-' ox American brig letter of marque, of 8 Prussia and part of Saxony. If these countries are abandoned, they will be relinquished to the rage, as we'. I as to the rapacity of the French. It is in this view, that, the late surrender of Spandau becomes highly- valuable. It will be a support to the defensive line of the Allies, instead of an annoyance iu their rear. A letter from Berlin, da- ed' | be 27th ultimo, men- tions an important fact, which has once appeared in the Hamburgh Papers. It states, that in virtue of a conveution concluded with the Austrian Commander on the Polish frontiers, a corps of Poles in the French service, assembled near Cracow, had laid down their arms, and disbanded themselves. Advice has been received of the arrival of his Royal Highness the Duke of Cumberland, his Aide- de Camp, and suite, at Hamburgh. HOUSE OF LOIU^ TFRIDAY, MAY 7. Petitions were presented in favour ef the- further Intro- duction and Diffusion of Christian knowledge in India, from Bristol and several places iu { ilpcesterahire, the towu of Lauder, Wilton und its vicinity, Bradford in lite county of York; from Rye, Tewkesbury, Liildfield, Cheltenham, and Winchcombe, by the Duke of NORFOLK, who observer! some of those were persons stiliug themselves Baptists and Baptist Missionaries ; and farther, that with respect to ap- plications of the kind, he Irusted that whatever provisions may be made, they would be accompanied wilh such care and caution ns would prevent the evils which may be ex- pected to arise from an over exercise of- zeal ;. from Daven- try, Hertford and its vicinity, and from other parts of the county of Hertford, from Nottingham and seveial places in Nottinghamshire, also from the Dissenting Ministers and Dissenters of London nnd Westminster, and a great number of other places, which were all ordered to lie 011 the table. Lord HOLLAND presented a Petition from certain Pro- testant Dissenting Ministers of the county of Devon, re- questing the removal of all restriclons 011 account of religion, from every cla « s of his Majesty's subjects, at Ihis important crisis. Ordered to lie on the table. HOUSE OF COMMONS. Sir W. SCOTT obtained leave to bring in a Bill lo extend the 45th and 49th of his Majesty lo American Prizes. He then brought 111 the Bill, which was read a first, land ordered to be rend a second time. Mr, HOUBLON presented a Petition from certain Inn- keepers in llie county of Essex, complaining of being ag- grieved by the number of soldiers balloted on them.— Mr. WESTERN said, that he knew tbe grievance to be so great, that many of the innkeepers were nearly unable to go 011 with their business The county of Essex was one through which a considerable number of our troops were obliged lo puss, and the allowances to the innkeepers, who lay 011 the route, was so inadequate, that many ot them were actually ruined by the burthen thrown upon them.

It must, however, be a Cape St. Vito, ( Sicily,) by the Gleaner ketcl more vance matter of sincere congratulation to those who feel a respect for the ancient powers of Europe, to see the House of Austria, which was so long at their head, emerging at length, tho' partially, from that sad eclipse which obscured its beams, and liolding forth, tho' yet in reserve, the prospect cf brighter times to those na- tions which so long fldurished under the protection of the Caesars. The German papers inform us, that the Emperor Alexander and the King of Prussia entered Dresden on the 24! h tilt. It was supposed they would make that capital their residence for some time. Count Stadion, the Austrian Minister, continued al the head- quarters of the allied sovereigns; and the King of Saxony had been invited to return to his capital. It is reported that an entire change of ministry has taken place at the Austrian Court, and that the new cabinet consists of persons avowedly hostile to the French interest. A Berlin paper states, that at ihe siege of Spandau, a Capt. Ludwig, of the besieging artillery, owed the pre- servation of lis life to his gold suuff- box, which was completely bent by a musket ball. Priute Eugene once owed his life to a similar cause. It is positively slated that Prussia is now subsidized from England, and the Hamburgh Exchange has varied nearly 8 per cent. 011 account of the bill negotiations, which are attributed to this cause. Wednesday being the first day of Easier Term, the Lord High Chancellor, the Vice Chancellor, the Master of the Rolls, and 11 of the Judges, went in procession to Westminster Hall, and opened the difl'erent Courts for the administration of public justice. COURT OF KING'S BENCH — Sir F. Burdelt v. Lord Moira.— The Attorney General said, their Lordships would recollect thai the trial at bar appointed in this case was to have taken place 011 the 5th day of the pre- sent term. He was now instructed to state to their Lordships, that a mutual rule had been entered into by the parties on both sides, by which it was agreed that the trial should not come 011 upon that day ; and it was probable their Lordships would nol be troubled at all on the subject. ! Vnodr. Croom.— Mr. Benyon applied for a rule to shew cause why the verdict for the plaintiff in this ease, which was an action of assault, tried at Chester, should not be set aside, or a nonsuit entered, under the following cir- cumstances. lt appeared, that the defendant, wheu lie committed the assault in question, was acting as a special constable, nnd was authorised by a warrant, granted by Sir C Coibet, a magistrate, under the Conventicle Act, 10 dis- perse all illegal meeting, to which W.- id, the plaintiff, a person not in holy orders, was about to preach. By that warrant the defendant was ordered lo disperse the meeting, and tolake Wood, or any other person acting disorderly, into custody. With this authority, llie defendant proceed- ed lo the place where the meeting was held; and on his iproac. lt, some of the congregation called out " Mob him! oh him !" upon which the defendant rushed forward, and seizctl Wood, who was at prayers, by the collar, and drugged him some way, and this was the assault complained of. He, Mr. Benyon, who was counsel for the defendant at the trial, then submitted, that he had two grounds of defence ; on the first of which, viz the production of the warrant, he went for a verdict; and ou tbe second, namely, the special justification of being a special constable, he should have contended for a nonsuit at the trial. However, it appeared the warrant was not produced ; and the chief justise then said, the only question for the jm v w as as to damages ; and tbey, without hesitation, found £ 200 damages. Under Ihese- circumstances he nol ouly applied for selling the ver- dict aside, 011 the grounds of excessive damages, but also, that the warrant, tho'not notified, was an authority ; and that his being a spccial constable w as a special justifica tiou, under t he 24th of the King. Lord I'- illenborougli sa'ul, the ouly question was, whether the warrant, nut being notified, was a protection; for, as be did not stale himself to be a spccial constable, and not being a constable tir lieadboiough, or holding any . office named in the24th ofthe King, be could derive no justifica- tion fi'om thftt Wilh respect to the ground of excessive damages, tbe Court did not consider them so excessive as to be a reason for disturbing the verdict. Mr Justice Bailey—" Was any notification made lo Wood, as the warrant directed, that lie was doing an illegal act; or did he afterwards commit any act of violence r" Lord Ellenborough—" 11 appears 110 communication was made to him ; but the defendant marched up to him, and seiz il him immediately.'' Mr. Benyuu—" My Lord, some of them said, ' Mob bini;' Ihey were all collected together, doing uti illegal act, and were convicted, and one and all must answer " Lord ElleuborOugti—" No; certainly not; this was a most serious insult; here is a man praying before a luge assembly collected round him, seized in a most violent manner, without any notice; it should, at least, have been notified to him that what be was doing was illegal. The racls will not allow of a special justification, and a rule will do you no good."

The last advices received from Hamburgh, are to the 3d iust. On the 24! h ult. the allied Sovereigns of Russia and Prussia arrived at Dresden, preceded and followed by large bodies of infantry, cavalry, and artillery, in all about 40,000 men, of whom 15,000 were expected to remain as a garrison, whilst the others were to proceed to join the armies of Wittgenstein and Blucher. These troops were in the best order and highest spirits, aud amply provided with cavalry and artillery. Besides the armies of Wittgenstein and Blucher, the latter of whom had his head quarlers, on the 22d ult. at Altenburgh, the corps of Miloradovitch, 10,000 strong, had reached Freyburg, within two days' march of that place. The advanced posts of the adverse parties were 011 the op- posite hanks of the Saale, near Naumbtirg.— The French liad obliged thy advanced posts of the Prussians, under ! Major V011 Btufher, to fall back from the Weimar to ' the Saale. The enemy, 21,000 strong, had also ad- vanced to tbe Elbe, and obliged the allies, uouer Dorn- berg, and the Hanseatic Legion, to pass to the right bank of the Elbe. New York papers have reached town to the 20tli of March. It appears by all the accounts that the Ameri- cans dread an attack by our blockading squadron on the coast of Norfolk. The British squadron was preparing for a vigorous attack, but at what point the Americans w ere unable to guess. lt is stated in letters from Lisbon, 011 the authority of the passengers 011 board of tiie Pacific, lhal after the negociation had been broken off between Sir J. B. Warren and the American Government, the Russian Ambassador to the United States proposed his media- tion, which was accepted by the President. The annual meeting of the British and Foreign Bible Society was held on Wednesday, at Freemasons' Hall, Great Queen- street 1 Lord Teignmouth in the Chair. The company amounted to nearly 2000 persons, including the Dukes of York and Sussex, Bishops of St. David's, Salisbury , Gloucester, and Cloyne. Messrs. Vansitlart and Wilberforce were among the speakers. The report stated, that the money received from various quarters within tbe preceding year, amounted to upwards of 7O, 0COl. Advices have reached town to- day from Heligoland to the ith inst.; they state, that by the last accounts from Hamburgh, it appeared, that the French had quilted Hamburgh, after committing great devastations and burning down the Palace erected in that town. When the French first entered H arburgh', Capt. Vlckers, who had the command of one of the Hamburgh cutters, run his ship on shore, which he quitted without attempting to get her off, or firing a single gun upon the enemy: from all the circumstances which occurred, it was suspected that this Captain had acted the part of a traitor, aud that his object was to give the French all | Ihe information he knew respecting the force at Ham- burgh, and its means of defence. This circumstance induced the Hamburghersto assemble their whole force, and to station il along the Banks of the Eibe, to watch the movements of the enemy, at the same time reducing every day the number of troops on duty, as the danger appeared to decrease. Capt. Vickers had returned to Hamburgh, and was arrested ; and an investigation of his conduct was about to take place. This day Government gave notice to the Merchants, that it was their final determination to grant 110 mote Licences, under any circumstaucts, to trade with America. This resolution 011 the part of the British Government, has been produced by the several repre- sentations made by tire Merchants, that if the trade with America was entirely put a stop to, the American Government would have no other alternative to can) 011 the wai' than by laying on direct taxes, which, ac- cording to all the recent accounts from the United States, the people would he uuwilltng to pay. An express reached Washington on the 7th of March, stating, that transports with two thousand troops had joined our blockading squadron. The Loan of sixteen millions of dollars has entirely failed, and the unpopu lar'. ty ofthe wai seems lo increase daily. The Presi- dent lias lately' granted licenses for importations from this Country. ,. • " There has beeu no Mail from the North to- day ; but it is reported, that a private letter has been received, which states tiie tetVeat of the Russians to Quartz, in consequence ol the approach of Bonaparte to the relief of the Vice Roy. As the last accounts from Hamburgh did not represent Prince Smolensko to be near the positions of General Wittgenstein, we shall not be surprised to find it correct; for it must he the policy of the allies, if they could not bring Beauharnois to battle before tne advance of Bonaparte, to retreat upon their own reinforcements; and, perhaps, to act Upon the defensive, till the arrival even of those, which are on their march from East Prussia and Poland. The only objection to their making any considerable retreat, relates to the duty arising from tne friendly conduct of LONDON, Monday Night, May id, > 8' 3. A hiail from Heligoland arrived this morning with Hamburgh letters and papers of tbe 4th. The Correspondent of tha 4th states, that the French nave been forced back froni Halle and have recrossed the Saale. We trust this will he confirmed. Twelve thousand Swedes have arrived at Wis mar, ar. d are proceeding by forced marches lo Schueriu. The Emperor of Austria is confidently- expected to join the allies, who propose to hold a congress and restore ihe dignity of Emperor uf Germany to tbe House of Ausiiia. The Ki ng of Saxony, it would appear froiii ibe concurring testimony ot several letters, lias had an interview wilh t| i= Emperor of Austiia at Liutz, and had arrived at Prague on his- rcttim to Dresden. A plan was laid for the arrest of bis Majesty by the French, bnt a previous hint of their intention gave his Majesty tbe opportunity of avoid- ing so gieat a misfortune. There is 110 doubt whatever of the Saxons' cordial assistance iu the cause of Germany. There has been an insurrection at Dan zic, and Romp, whose palace was attacked, escaped with difficulty. The garrison consists but of Cooo effective men The suburbs of VViltenbnrg have beeu taken. Letters from Lisbon 11111I Cadiz mention, that the Toulon fleet has put to sea. The following is from an officer al Cadiz: " Cadiz, Aprils, 1813. " A vessel arrived this day from Gibraltar, bringiugValen- ciaii papers of a very late dale Tbey coniain to this effect: ' The French squadron, of 18 sail of tbe line, from Toulon, having on board 5000 troops, has escaped. Sir Edward l'ellew, wilh 14 of the British line, has sailed in pursuit ot the enemy, who, it is supposed, are gone to America.' On fhe 3d instant, the Corporation of Dublin tejccted by a majority of nine, a motion made for an address to Ihe Princess of Wales. " War Department, May 10.— A letter has been received from Brigadier- General Lygon, dated Hamburgh, May 4, of which the following is an extract:—" General Sebastiani has marched with his corps from Luneh'erg 011 Salzwedel.

The Mayor of this town haviug declined to comply with a requisition for calling a Meeting ofthe inhabi- tant* for " considering the propriety of an Address to be presented to her Koyal Highness the Princess of Wales Oil her happy escape from the late insidious attempt to destroy her life and character"— a meetin" was convened by Mf. Hazleditie, Mr. Rage, Mr. Wicksteed, Mr. Clement, and Mr. C. Hulbert; aud held at the County Hall yesterday.— O11 the motion of Mr. Clement, seconded by Mr, Hazledine, Mr. Uage took the Chair, and commented at considerable length on the refusal of the Mayor to convene tha inhabitants; observing, however, that his Worship had certainly a legal right to exercise his discretion m so doing, hut that it was for them to consider whether or not he had iu th is instaucc exercised a sound discretion.— A vote of censure on the Mayor, we understand, was proposed, but not coucurr'ed in.— The resolutions and address having been read, were seconded by Mr. Wicksteed. The Rev. Johu Palmer and Mr liulbert short!? Addressed the meeting.— The resolutions acd addresi were then separately put, and agreed to.— See Advert. We understand, that the West and North Regiments of Local Militia of this County are to assemble at Shrewsbury, on. Saturday, the 29th inst. for training and esercise. At a meeting of the inhabitants of Leicester, held a few days ago, it was resolved that a handsome marble monument should be erected to the memory of the Rev. Thomas Robinson, vicar of St. Mary's in that town, " in testimony of the high veneration wittl which they regard his character, ins cond. iet, and hi* principles, ami of the high sense they entertain of the benefits derived to the town and neighbourhood from his spirit, example, and various exertions, as a citizen, a subject, a fellow townsman, and a Christian Minister, during tl. e space of nearly forty years, in which he resided among them." At the General Annual Meeting ofthe Trustees of the SHREWSBURY, Public Subscription School on Dr. Bell's system, on Thursday last, Rowland Wingfield, Esq. was elected President, and the following gentlemen on the Com- mittee for the ensiling year:— John Berk, Esq. Trea- surer; the Rev. W. G. Rowland, Secretary ; Edward Burton, Esq. Col. Gooch, Rev. Hugh Owen; Kev, J. B. Blakeway, Rev. Win. Hopkins, jun. Mr. Edward Hughes, and Mr. Richard France. John Phillips, Esq of Heath House, Staffordshire, ( whose death was noticed 111 our paper of Ihe 28th nil.) has be- queathed a legacy of £ iouo to the Stafford infirmary Besides his acquirements in trade, Mr. Phillips inherited as eldest son the landed estates of his father, an independent gentleman of the same name and place. He and hir brothers, Nathaniel aud Thoihas, in copartnership, were manufacturers of the first respectability for upwards of 50 years, indifferent branches in Manchester, other parts of Lancashire, and at Tean, ill Staffordshire. The tape trade which began with one loom and one weaver, imported bv thein from Holland, has increased to many hundreds, each loom giving employment to several pair of hands.— M r. Phillips united in an eminent degree the pleasing polite manners and true principles of a gentleman, to the assiduity and regularity of a good tradesman— He, as well as lii's much teipceled brothers, relinquished the profits of trado some years ago, but he still continued his kind attention to his old servants, aud his donations during a long life, as well as the bequests of his lasl will, do honour to his inemorv. Imposture detected — The Public are much indebted to the Gentlemen, who instituted, and have with so much vigilance and impartiality conducted the Watch of Auu Moore, of Tutbu. y. They have detected an impost!! re, which has with extraordinary ai l and success, been carried ou tor some years; and which during that period, lias obtained, in regard to the supposed validity of tbe woman's assertions upon the article of the woman's abstinence from food, the sanction of a great number of medical, philosophical, and other visitois of every description, from all parts of the kingdom lt is remarkable, that although many in various places had dis- believed the fact, yctthosewho have had t he longest not? most minute opportunities of enquiring into tbe circum- stantial evidence, as it stood, till now, thought themselves justified in their assent lo its integrity — The cloak is, how- ever, now torn off from tbe imposition, and the question connected with the truth or falsehood ofjthis singular ma- ter, set at rest for ever.— The following is tbe confession of Ann Moore herself, published by the Committee: " I, Ann Moore, of Ttilbury, humbly asking pardon of all persons tphom I liane attempted to deceive and impose upon, nnd above all. leith the most unfeigned sorrow and contrition imploring the Divine Mercy and Forgiveness of that God whom I hare so greutty offended, do most solemnly declare, that / have occasion- ally taken sustenance for the last Six Years— Witness my hand this foui th day of May, 1 s 13." " ANN MOORE, y, her mark " Mr. Wright, a Surgeon, of Derby, sat with Ann Moore for eight hours preceding the time when the business was closed; aud she must have sunk from inanition, had he not supplied her with vinegar and water lo the amount i f six or eight ounces, which she sucked from a moistened handkerchief. Such was her state when Ibe wali- h left her that the pulse was entirely gone at one wrist, and at the olher was like a fine thread, intermittent and 100 111 a minute. It was thought she could uot survive ; hut in the course of Friday and Saturday, she took some lea unci a considerable quantity of milk, mid is now fust recover!-.. WEDNESDAY, MAY 12, 1SI3. MARRIED.

On the 13th ult aged 73, Mr. Edward Edwards, book- seller, of Ruthin.— For upwards of 40 years this eccentric character might literally lie said to be as stationary as his counter, for excepting upou real emergency, did be ever part from it from morning to night— by penurious saving, he amassed the large sum of four thousand six hundred pounds, in tbethree per cent. Consols, besides other pro- perty, the whole of which he has left jointly between his two daughters— and in default ot issue, in equal propor- tions tothe Chester and Liverpool Infirmaries, restraining one of bis daughters from marrying such men, whose names he specifies. To the native ardour of patriotism in his character, was added a deteimined enmity to the origi- nal invaders the Saxons— a strong veneration for antiquities induced him to collect many, and his leading passion, riches, could alone induce him 10 part with thein. He possessed 11 radical knowledge of his native tongue, of .. • • . , ,, . „ - . 1- which he was justly proud and to a retentive memory, tha day s prices, but the inferior sorts are dull also added a petulant a, id ente, taming wit.

A few days ago, til PlAs- coch, Auglesea, after a long and severe illness, Captain John Browning Edwards, of the Koyal Navy, aged 42.

The Jury recommended both the prisoners to mercy. Mr. Justice Kentick, in passing sen- tence of death upon them, pointed out to them the great offence they had been guilty of in opposing the laws of their country, and the persons appointed to put them in force.

SSES, FREEMEN, HOUSEHOLDERS, and INHABIT- ANTS of the ancient TOWN and BOROUGH of SHREWSBURY, legally assembled, in Pursuance of Public Notice, in tlie County Hall, CHARLES BAGE, Esq. in the Chair: RESOLVED, lst, That, 011 a careful Perusal of the Docu- ments relative to the Proceedings against Her Roval High- ness the Princess of Wales, We. are of Opinion, that Addresses of Congratulation to Her Royal Highness cannot tend to increase the Irritation or to widen the Breach" unhappily subsisting between His Royal Highness the Prince Regent and bis illustrious Consort. RESOLVED, 2d, That, lo entertain the contrary Opinion, it is absolutely necessary to believe, that His Royal High- ness would be more gratified with Ihe Pmofof his Wife's Infamy than of her Innocence; a Supposition thai must render it absurd to imagine that the " irritation" and the 41 breach" can, bv any measures whatever, be encreased and widened; and which at the same time constitutes a libel against His Royal Highness oflhe utmost possible Severity. RESOLVED, 3d, That, ou I lie more natural and, we trust, tbe more just Supposition, that His Royal Highness must rejoice more than any other Man at the manifest Innocence of the Mother of his only Child, the increased Esteem in w hich she appears lo be held hy Ihe Public, must tend t(>: render the Character of Her Royal Highness more esti- mable and more amiable in his Eyes, and, therefore, has a Tendency lu reconcile them rather than " to widen the breach." RESOLVED, 4tli, That public Congratulations 011 the Manifestation of Her Royal Highness's Innocence are a Tribute due to Virtue, in which " all good Men" may and ought tojoin. li 1 SOLVED, 5th.. That Addresses, which evince Ibe public Feeling in Favour of Innocence and Virtue, are amongst the most powerful Means of exciting those to whom they are addressed to adhere sleadily to that Line of Conduct which has led 10 such universal Approbation, RESOLVED, 6th, That Addresses of Congratulation 011 the present Occasion are also amongst tbe most powerful Means of restraining the Conduct of high aud illustrious Characters within the Bounds of Justice, of Decency, and Propriety ; and tend tn improve the Morals, the Peace, and the Happiness of Society; it i « , therefore, the bouuden Duty of every " REAL PATRIOT" to promote them. RESOLVED, 7th, That the following Address he presented to Her Roy il Highness tftie Princess of Wales:— MAY IT PLEASE YOUR ROYAL HIGHNESS, WE, bis Majesty's most dutiful and loyal Subjects, Burgesses, Freemen, Householders, and Inhabitants, of the ancient Town and Borough of SHREWSBURY, beg Leave, wilh the utmost Deference, Respect, and Attach nient, to present to yonr Royal Highness oar mosl earnest and heiu lfell Congratulations, upon your having so tri umpbanlly defeated the late mosl atrocious Conspiracy : a Conspiracy, Which had for its object the Destruction of your Life, and, wilh your Life, its brightest Ornament and Glory, your Honour. 1 Shrewsbury, May 1st, 1813.

By Order of the General Meeting of Lieutenancy of the County of '_ Scilc, p, ^ We naturally feel, and desire to express. Sentiments of just Indignation aud Abhorrence against the wretched Agents and Plotters of this most foul Confederacy;— and would hold thein up to thc Execration of all, as the basest and niost despicable of mankind, who have sought the Blood of Ihe Innocent to gratify the evil Passions of the Wicked. Yet we cannot suffer our Fediugs on this Sub- ject— painful, deep, and powerful as they are— so far lo subdue us, as to prevent our noticing another Subject of tbe greatest Importance. And we beg Permission, 011 tbe pre. sent Occasiun, to mark with the Reprobation it deserves, the Attempt to establish a Tribunal, under the specious Pretext of a Court of Inquiry, which is not only hostile to the Genius of our Laws, and iocoropntiblc with the Spirit of our free Constitution; but which so forcibly reminds us of the Courts of Star Chamber and High Commission, against which we feel an hereditary and interminable Hatred, that wc trust au object less illustrious than your Roval Highness — a Cause less sacred than the Honour of our future Queen — would have roused u. s to a sol emu Protest against so dangerous anil frightful an Innovation. Upon reviewing tbe Conduct uf the Commissioners, we cannot but exceedingly deplore, that having detected a base Conspiracy against your Royal Highucss's Life, it did nut excite thetn to a more cautious Procedure as to the sub- ci'dinate Parts of tbe Inquiry. After having seen and acknow ledged thfe deadly Malice of your Enemies, thai they should have presumed upon such Evidence us lias been submitted to thc Public— partial, unconfruuted, aud justly subjected to the Suspicion of Con- spiracy— to advise his Majesty, your Royal Fathcr- io- Law, to inflict the real Punishment of Censure and Disgrace, which eventually led to your Separation from a bi- loved Child, excites Feelings of Disapprobation aud Regret stronger than we can allow ourselves to express. We trust, however, that the affectionate Sympathy yonr Royal Highness's Sufferings and Virtues have excited in tbe Hearts of Ihe People, w ill teach a memorable Lesson : coii- vinch* the bail that thev cannot sin against Justice with Impunity, and the good, tbat to deserve the Esteem, is to ensure the Support ofthe Nation. Permit us to express our most earnest Wishes that you may be speedily restored 10 llie Society of your Daughter— 011 whose Mind we doubt not you will deeply impress the in calculable Value of those Popular Rights which are essen- tial to the Security of the gicatest as well us the meanest Subject oflhe Realm, and upou which alone is founded the Stability oflhe Throne itself.

Abridged from a detailed account sent bit a particular friend, who requested they might be noticed, as they respect the allevia- tion nf the severest affliction bu* han nature knows. Two medical gentlemen, who reside near Brentford, have lately made public three cases of this deplorable malady successfully treated by means long known to themselves, and attended with never- failing relief, and which are so piild in their operation as not to create the smallest risk or danger to the patient. The first is the case of William Harrison, aged 36 year's, who had formerly heen master of the Duke of Kent's band. This man had been declared by Dr. Monro as an incurable lunatic, and bad beer confined upwards of three years in one of the incurable wards of Bcthlem, when by orders from the War- office, at the instance of Iiis 1! o val Highness, he w as taken on the 30th of Sept. last to Mr. Delaboyde's house.—. At evening they began their curative means, space of 15 minutes he answered in - question put to him, and after the t tinned another quarter of an hour he was put to bed, where he slept perfectly well the whole night, and in thc morning exclaimed he felt himself a new man. From this time he daily continued to regain his mind, so that on the 5th day he was able to go to church with Mr. D. where he conducted him*',! If with the greatest propriety On the 12th he accompanied his wife to Chelsea to see his two younger children- On the 15th he went to Kensington palace with Mr. D. where he was introduced to the Duke of Kent, and on the follow- ing day performed on the clarionet to the astonishment of his Royal Highness and his companions. He has since'that time resided at Mr. Delahoyde's house wilh his wife, associating with the family, and instructing some of the younger branches in music, without tbe least restraint. The second case was that of John Moon, aged 28, a private in the Portsmouth division of Marines; he had been in Eethlnm eight months, nearly the whole time in chains, and often handcuffed. He was placed under Messrs. Dt- lahovde and Lucett's care, by an order ofthe Lords of the Admiralty, on the 2Ist of December. Ou the 22d the curative plan was tried at eight o'clock, for half an hour; his pufee during Ihe time fell from 119 to 95; by halfpast nine it was reduced to 80. He slept well during fhe night, and awoke refreshed thc following morning. On the 26th he was considered in a slate of convalescence. On the first of January he went wilh Mr. Lucett to London, and at a public house opposite Bethlem he met and shook hands with his old acquaintances the keepers, and, to their astonishment, was very gracious with them. On the 7 th of January he was employed by Mr. Delahoyde in the garden, and was under no restraint whatever. The third case was that of Elizabeth Lancaster, wife of that justly- famed character Joseph Lancaster, of the Royal Free School, Borough- road, Southwark. This food woman had been declared incurable by three several years past. In consequence of the Wool, and throws it in, while five men, who stand hy the side below the first man, press and rub it wilh their feet as it passes, and send it from one to the other. Still lower down are other workmen who stop it in its passages, aud throw it on a stone slope. A net at the extremity of the aqueduct retains the Wool, carried away hy the current. When the Wool is well drained, it is spread upon thc declivity of the meadows before- mentioned, and four fine sunny days are scarcely sufficient to dry il tho- roughly. When quite dry, it is put into bags and carried away. Initial letters upon the bags indicate the sort of Wool contained ih each ; and besides these, there is a mark which distinguishes the flock by which it was furnished; so that a connoisseur, who saw the bags, would say, thai is fine or superfine Wool of the Ncgretti, Escurial, or Bejar flocks.— Upon a smaller scale, then, this mode consists in washing the Wool, when sorted, in hot water by steeping and turning only ; and afterwards well rinsing it, by pressing it perpendi- cularly sideways, in a current of clear cold water. HOUSE OF COMMONS, MONDAY, MAY 3. The Committee on ti e Insolvent Debtors' bill, and the General Inclosnre bill, were postponed to this day se'nuight. In a Committee of Ways and Means, the CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER moved, that a Supply be granted to his Majesty of three millions, to be raised by Government de- bentures ; and that [ eisons bidding for Exchequer bills on tbe 4th, 5th, and: 6lh of Mav, be at liberty to subscribe for such debentures, by paying 4^ per cent. These, with other Re- solutions, were agreed lo, and the Report ordered for to- morrow. Mr. R. OS'B moved, that Ihe petition which he had presented lately from a number of Journeymen and Tradesmen, praying . t—. .1.- x. t- t.-,..... t.... 1, t,„ 1, , fl, It wns princted l* that all Mr. W. SMITH rose, pursuant to the notice he had given. I Understanding, however, from a conference with a noble Lord ( Castlereagh) that no opposition would be given to his motion, he should take up tbe time of the House for only one or two minutes. His Bill would refer to the Act of King William, commonly called the Coronation Act, which ex- ludes persons denying the Trinity from the provisions of the Toleration Act. A subsequent Act substitutes a declaration of general belief in the Christian Religion, as contained in the Holy Scriptures; but the 9th and 10th of William still remained unrepealed, which excludes persons convicted of impugning the doctrine of the Trinity from all offices, Civil and Military, and declares such parsons, if so convicted a second time, disabled from any suit or action at law, and that they shall moreover suffer three years imprisonment. The object of his Bill was to re- move all grievances. An Act had been passed lust ye3r which did honour to the spirit of the times, anil the liberality of Ministers. He should now move, " That leave he given to bring in a Bill for the relief of persons not professing the Doctrine of the Trinity "— Lord CASTLEREAGH did not rise to oppose the motion, but to reserve for himself the right of any future opposition he fhigbt think necessary, not being aware of Ibe mode of proceeding the bOu. member intended to pursue. Leave being given, Mr. W. SMITH namerl, on tbe Commit- tee for preparing the Bill, Mi. Whitbread and Sit B. Hobart. The House having resolved itself into a Committee of Sup- ply, the following sums were voted: 163tl. for the West- minster Improvements— 1718/. for the relief of the French Refugees— 3000f to tbe Board of Agriculture— 22,257/. for the whole Establishment of the Naval As; luin— 82,51Sf. for completing the Buildings uf ihe Naval Asylum— 2S, 407/. for the Penitentiary House at Mlllba'qk.— Ordered lo report to- morrow. The Pacific is arrived at Lisbon from New York.— 1 She left that port on the 21st of March, at which time there were no English vesseis off New York. The Americans are in grfcat want of money. The Mace- donian frigate and another could not be manned for want of hands. All the English are said to have been marched 250 miles in the interior. By a Bill now in the House of Commons ( as amend- ed by the Committee) to facilitate the performance of the duties of Surveyors of Highways and Turnpike- roads, it is directed that the cutting of hedges and lop- ping of trees in or near turnpike roads, shall be com- pleted before the 1st of November, and the cleansing of drains, & c. before the 15th of November and lst of March in each year, on general notices being affixed on the church doors, and proclamations made in the church yards after divine service. No fence adjoining any highway to be more thau five feet high, unless more than fiye feet distant from the side of the road ; and fences may be lowered by magistrates or trustees of roads, on giving 14 days notice to the occupier of the land. In a Bill recently in Parliament in which it had been determined to leave out the penalties, it was discovered in the progress of it, that one penalty had been left in., namely, that eif transportation for fourteen years, and by the words, which in consequence of the alter- ations that had been made, immediately lollowed, il was'enacted, that this penalty should be equally divided between the Churchwardens of the parish aad the Informer. Physicians, , bearing of Harrison's case, Mr. Lancaster, through the medium of Ihe Duke of Kent, made immediate ar- rangements for placing his wife under Mr. Delahoyde's care. In the course of four days a ttofe was sent to Mr. Lancaster, stating that the curative process had been applied with evident advantage. She has since seen her husband and child, and has held a conversation three hours long; and there is every prospect she will shortly be restored to all the joys of domestic life. From " flints to the preservation of Health."— I recollect a case which made a strong impression on my mind, though il occurred at a time when I was not much accustomed lo reflect oil these tilings. It was of I an honest, industrious gardener, who worked for a gen- tleman about two miles from his cottage, from which he went every morning, taking his provision with him. This consisted of a piece of breait, with, sometimes, a cold potatoe, an onion, or a bit of cheese, and a bottle of very small beer, for which he often substituted water. After his dinner he usually slept about half an hour on a mat, in his tool house. I was much in the habit of conversing with him, both at his work and al his meal, when I could not help expressing ray incon- siderate wonder, at the relish with which he seemed to eat his hard bread, and at his being so strong and hearty with such poor fare ; but he laughed at me, and told me, he could have meat, if he chose if, but that he liked his dry bread as well as I did my dainties, and that I should uot complain as I did if I lived like him. He had, certainly, remaikable strength and activity, and a happy flow of rustic wit and pleasantry He was always clad neat and clean. In this course he had con- tinued many years, when his master married. The good woman, pitying his hard lot, in a manner forced him to est a bil of meat every day, and now and then to ^ ke a glass of something good lo comfort him. The change was most remarkable. He soon lost his good humour, became peevish and disobliging, indolent and irregular in his work ; and shortly afler, was consigned to the workhouse, where he died in a kind of stupe- faction. Method of washing Wool in Spain.— In Ihe month of April the Sheep begin their return from the plain to the mountains. Ill May they are shorn, an operation of ionsiderable magnitude in Spain, because it is perform- ed in great buildings capable of receiving whole flocks of 40, 50, and someliires 60,000 sheep. The sheep- shearing is a time of rcjoicing, both to the owner and workmen. A hundred and twenty- five workmen are necessary to every thousand sheep. Each sheep produces fou sorts of wool, more or less fine. In the neighbourhood of Segovia are several shearing- houses —( Esquileos.) When thc shearing is finished, the woo! is partly made up in bags, sent to the sea- ports, and shipped without any other preparation ; partly, lo the washing or scouring places iu different parts of Castile. There are several iu the district of Segovia, Ihe principal of wllioh is that of Ortijosa, or Otejds, All the wool used in the Royal Manufactory of San Fernando, in Guadalaxara, w here the famous cloths of Vigonia are made, is scoured in this quarter. The quantity annual- ly scoured here is ( or rather was) about 40,000 arrobas ( of25lbs. each) beiijg five hundred tons, which, by this operation, is reduced to almost the half. The situation could not have been better chosen ; it is very spacious, and forms a kind of basin, the inner divisions of which are meadows, on an easy declivity, which terminate in one common centre, ana are fully open lo the ray s of the sun, The Wool is carried thithe", each fleece as it was first made up from the sheep. In this form it is given to the Sorters ( Apnrtaa'ores) who divide il into four heaps of different qualities. They are so accustomed to this business, which requires a long apprenticeship, that they can tell, at first sight, from w hat part of the animal each lock has heen taken. The coarsest is sold for the benefit of souls in purgatory ; for, in Spain, religion is connected with every thins. The other that the 5th of Elisabeth, by which it was enacted " that all persons should serve an apprenticeship ot seven years before they should he | jermitted to work as journeymen iu any trade Or mechanical employment," might be enfoieed, should be referred lo a Committee. The motion was agreed to, end a Committee appointed. HOUSE OF COMMON'S, TUESDAY, MAY 4. Upon the order of the day for the House going tnto a Com- mittee upon the County Records' Bill being read, Mr. WKSTBBN argued at some length against the Bill, abd opposed the Speaker leaving the Chair.— Mr. SUMNER re- plied ; afler which Ihe House went into a Committee. A division took place upon the clause ( or aporopriating a sum of money for building a residence for the Clerk of the Peace, when the numbers w^ ere— For the Clause 56, Against it, 611— Majority 12. Sir S. ROM ILLY objected tothe fees usually given tothe Clerks of the Peace. In one instance, when the salary was only £ 50 per annum, tbe fees foi acquittal had amounted to .£ 150.— He intended to propose a clause, that it should be unlawful for any Clerk of the Peace appointed after the passing of this Act to receive fees from persons pleading not guiltv. The object of this was todt away a great hardship which had long be tin much complained of. At present, men charged ivilh committing an assault, though perfectly innocent, were fre- quently obliged to plead guilty lo escape the expense of as- serting their innocence, as they could uot plead not guilty w ithout Incurring an expense ot about £ 9 The hon member also proposed another clause, enjoining the Clerk to transmit to the Secretary of State for the Home Department, au ac- count ot the number of persons, male aud female, who had been tried foi different offences, specifying what those off-' nees were, and what harl been the result of ihe trial, aud tins to be done on or before the 31st of December in each year. Two divisions then took place on the two clauses — On the first clause, ( for doing away the Fees to the Clerks), the num- bers were— For the Clause, 40— Against it, 45. On the second, ( for transmitting an account to the Secretarv of State, ofthe Number of Persons tried)— Forthe clause, 42— against it, 56. Roth the clauses, consequently, were los', and the Report was ordeied to be received to- morrow. Upon the Report of the Committee of Ways and Means being brought up, Mr. PONSONSY stated, that he had no wish whatever to obstruct the measuies ol Ministers for raising the Supplies.— Of all the years that had elapsed since the commencement of the war, it was most desirable and most expedient that tbe country should inake the greatest exertions in tbe present.— His object only was to make some obsetvalions on certain documents before the House. Out of Ihe vole of three millions, it had been stated that three or four hundred thousand pounds had been paid lo Sweden. He also perceived that the Mi- ni, ter of Denmark had withdrawn from this country, and the cause why no reconciliation bad been made betwixt us and Denmark, had been slsttfd in the engagements we had entered into respecting that Power. If the noble Lord ( Castlereagh) should state that it would be improper at pre- sent to make any disclosure, he should cheerfully acquiesce, and not press the subject farther. But Ministers should be cautious of entering into any such engagement as they are said to have done, as it might tend greatly to retard Ihe re- storation of the peace cf tbe Continent. No exertion had been seen on the part of Sweden, unless her having sent troops into Pomerauia. It had been asserted, that in the event of a more active co- operation on the part uf Sweden, a guarantee had been made by Russia, to which Russia had acceded, of her Oeing secured in Ihe [ rossession of Norway, This he did no! censure, as unjust, since we were at war with Denmark ; but lie should put it to Ministers to reflect, how far it would be politic iu this country to deprive Denmark of her territories, even though at war with us. Rut should the noble Ltrrtl object to making any disclosure, here also he should acquiesce.— Though Ibe present Administration was not constituted iu such a manner as to command his approbation, he should, in the present state of affairs, place in them whatever confidence had at any time been repo ed in any Ministers; reserving, however, to himself the right at a future period uf censuring their conduct, should he feel himself called upon to disapprove the measures tney had adopted.— Lord CASTLERBAGH rcse and expressed his satisfaction, that tbe right hen. Gentleman did not insist upon a disclosure of our foreign relations being at present made to the House, unless the information could be given without detriment to the public service. He ( Loid Castlereagh) would feel very happy iu giving t very infor- mation relative to the late negociation wilh Denmark, but it could not be done without reference to our relations with olher Courts, which, in the present stale of the war, he did not thir. k he could, without injustice to the public service, make. As soon, however, as existing circumstances should change, it would give him the greatest pleasure to lay a complete state- ment ot our negueiaiioii with Denmark before Parliament,— He begged only to stale, that in the communications w ith Denmark, British claims were involved, which never could be compromised, ( Hear, hear, hear!)— Mr. PONSONBY uaj p rfectly satisfied with what was said by Ihe nr; b! e Lord, and trusted that no unnecessary delay would take place iu bringing a subject uf such vast iinponance before lire House. The Resolutions were theu agreed to, aud almost all the Membeis left tbe House. HOUSE OF COMMONS, WEDNESDAY, MAY 5. Several Petitions lor promoting the l'lopagaiion of the Christian itehgiou in India were presenter!, anrl ordered to lie on the table. The Highway bill went through a Coinmitlee, the Repoit was received, and entitled to be laken into fuillier consider- ation on Friday. Mr. LYITSLTON moved, that theie be laid before the House copies of the minutes of the Com t Martial lately held on the officers nf the Java frigate.— Mr. CRCKER seconded Ihe motion, which was agreed to. Sir F. BURHITT, pursuant to notice, moved for the minutes of the Couit ot Inquiry held on Captain Phillimore. He should be sorry lo be considered, for a moment, as au advo- cate for insubordination— subordimifcn being so necessaiy to the very existence of our navy; but in this case he wus HOUSE OF LORDS, THURSDAY, MAY 6. The Weymouth Voters bill was read a third time and passed,— Several Petitions were presenterl from various parts, praying for ihe propagation of Christian Knowledge in India, — The third reading of the Curates bill was postoncd till till Tuesday se'iinight. HOUSE OF COMMONS. Mr. LYTTELTON'moved to discharge the order relative tn tbe production of the minutes of'the Court of Inquiry, held on the officer commanding tbe Java frigate, which being done, he moved—" That there be laid before tbe House a return of the complement of men at the last muster in England ; and also, a return of the new hands on board Ibe Java, the Macedonian, and the Guerrier, at tbe time of their respective engagement s."— Ordered. Lord STANLEY presented a Petition from several Merch- ants ai. d Manufacturers in and about Manchester, praying, that the regulation which went to prohibit the importation of American cotton might not take place, so as to give an undue advantage to other countries. The Petitioners, however, stated, that if the American potts were blockaded, and other nations prevented from obtaining cotton, they would submit to such prohibition.— Ordered to lie on the table. A Petition was presented from Exeter, in favour of pro- pagating Christianity in India.— Ordered lo lie on tbe table. — Mr. DAVIES GIDDY gave notice, that on Thursday se'nnight. he should move for returns of persons who had been acquitted of offences throughout England ; preparatory to a bill he intended to bring in, for regulating the fees paid to Clerks of ihe Peace. three sorts thus separated, are extended upon wooden persuaded justice could i. ot be done between the parties con- hurdles where they are spread, beaten, and cleansed eerned, without these documents being produced ; and miner from tha duet and dirt; they are afterwards taken to I that ner. uasiou he felt it his duty to press tor their production. the washing place As . soon as the water in the great copper, which is of an enormous size, is on the point of boiling, it is let out by two great spigots that open or shut certain pipes by which it is conveyed into three square wells, lined wilh hewn stone, and about three feet deep. The hot water falls upon a bed of Wool which covers the boilom of ilie well. The Wool thus disposed is turned in every direction by three men, one to each well. Each sort of Wool is washed separately ; and according to its fineness, requires the water to be more or less heated. After this first operation the Wool is again spread lipon hurdles, to drain off Ihe water, and with it the filth which it has begun to dissolve. These hurdles are placed iu the interval of three or four feet, which separates the stone walls from the narrow aqueduct also of stone, through which runs a slream of cold water. A man placed at the entrance of the aqueduct receives being by thai persuasion fell duly for prod He declared his objection It, Courts of Inquiry, secret Courts, and unconstitutional ; and concluded moving for tbe minutes of the evidence.— The SPEAKER in- quired who seconded the motion, antl a considerable pause ensued, uo geulleQian rising to second it." On the Sjieakei's inquiring a second time, Mr. I. YTTBLTON said, he felt him- self in an awkwuid situation, called on unexpectedly to second this motion, by the circumstance of no other person doing so; but unless lie had done so, he saw no other way of being able to pay that tribute to the character and merit of Captain Phtllimoie, which a knowledge of him and his conduct on boaitl the Diadem enabled him to say they deserved. He objected generally to tbe motion, for which he considered there was no foundation, as he could not consider the assertion of Hancock, unsubstantiated by auy collateral proof, as suffi- cient. gionnd for the House entertainingsucb a motion. And he begged now to be uudeislood, that in seconding the inutiou of the hon. Baionet, he did not at all approve of his proceeding. Mr. Dundas, Mr. Dickenson, Mr. Croker, Mr. Swan, Loid Cochrane, and Mr. W, Wynn, also c, rosed tbe motion, wnich tva* negatived. Attach on her Majesty, by an insane person. — On Sunday noon the Prince Regent received an account from Windsor, of the Queen being indisposed in consequence of an attack from a female domestic, who was seized with a violent fit of insanity. The Prince ordered a special messenger to be sent toWindsor, to inquire aftei tbe health of his royal mother, aud the full particulars of the attack. On the return of the Messenger, the Prince sent off Sir Henry Halford, at seven o'clock in the evening, to attend her Majesty. The circumstances of the attack we understand to be as follows:— Thc unfortunate and afflicted female, ybn made the alarm, is named Davenport, and holds the situation ot assistant mistress of the wardrobe to Miss Rice. Her mother has been employed a number of years in the royal family. She was originally engaged as rocker to the Princesses. She was afterwards appointed necessary woman. She hat filled several situations veiy respectably, till she has attained the office of beting house* keeper at the Lower Lodge, Windsrtr. Her daughter, the subject of this article, was norri in the Queen's palace ; she is now upwards of 30 years of age. and has lived constantly with ber mother, under ibe royal protection. When she was a girl she was attacked with a fit of iusanity, but was con- sidered perfectly cured ; hewever she has frequently been attacked with melancholy, crying, and being very despond- ing, without any known cause. Her mind has been more affected since the death of tile Princess Amelia. She was preseut at the delivery of the funeral sermon, which was preached at Windsor on the melancholy occasion, which bad such an effect on ber mind, that she became enamoured with tha clergyman who delivered it, antl report attributes love to be the cause of the violent derangement of mind with which she was seized on Sunday morning. She slept in the Tower over tbe Queen's bed room. About live o'clock the Queen was awoke with a violent noise at her bed- room door, accom- panied with a voice calling violently for the Queen of England to redress ber wrongs, & c. wiih the most distressing shrieks, screams, and other noises possible lo be conceived. The Queen's bed room has two doors ; she used such violence, as to break open the outer door, and it is supposed she would have done the same to the inner door, which she endeavoured to force, but fortunately il opened inwards. Mi>. Beckendorf, the Queen's dresser, sleeps in tbe same room with her Ma- jesty. They were both extremely alarmed, particularly at first, they being awoke with grievous screams aud shrieks, and a voice calling for the Queen of England. Her Majesty and Mrs. Beckendorf hesitated, for a little time what had best be tlone, when, it being asceitained that it was a female voice, she ventured to open the innei door, and go out. when she found it to be Miss Davenport, with only her bodv linen tm ; she was extremely violent with Mrs, Beckeudoif, in- sisting upon forcing her way to the Queen, and it w as teated that could she have obtained her object of getting into tbe Queen's beil- room, she would have vented her rage upon ber, from thu language she used. She had a letter in her hand, which she insisted tin delivering to tbe Queen. Mrs. Bee. k « n- dorf was placed in a most perilous situation, from between 20 minutes and half an hour being subject loher violence, keep, ing her otl from forcing her way to the Queen, anil ringing a bull in the passage. During this time the Queen heaid all that was passing, and was in great agitation and distress, for tear Miss Davenport should gain admittance to her, the un- fortunate female declaring thai ihc Queen could and should re- dress her wrongs. The bell Mis Brckendorf rung, unfortunately did noi awake any particular person, but by the incessant and violently ringing of it, after the above time, Mr. Giobeeker, the Queen's page, and two fool men, came to Mrs. BeckendorPs assistance. Miss D. made use of a very profane speech lo Mr. Grobecker. All these persons could not manage her till Mr. Meyer, the porter, came, and he being a very powt rful man accomplished it. When she found herself overpowered she insisted upon seeing the King, if she could not see the Queen. Mr. Meyer carried her by force up to her bed room, laid her on her bed and covered her with sume clothes, but site kicked tbeui all off. Dr Willis was sent for, who ordered her a strait waistcoat, but she continued so violent that it was with great difficulty it was got on. All attempts at dressing her proved useless; she was therefore sent off in a man's great coat in a post chaise, accompanied by two persons, to a house at Ilox- ton for ihe reception of insane persons. At the Cambiidge Quarter Sessions, holdeu on Satur- day, J. Haddow, Edw. Haddow, and William Leach, were convicted of heading a riotous and tumultuous assembly of people in the Church- yard of Willingbam, in that couuty, in September last, and resisting the affixing of a notice on the Church- door ( as required by the act) of an intended application to Parliament for the enclosure of the common field lands within th. it parish. They were sentenced by the court to be imprisoned in the county gaol of Cambridge for one calendar month, aud eac| i to pay a fine of 40s. to the King. SOLDIKRS' WIVES.— An Order has been issued from the Horse Guards, directing, that when a regiment em- barks for garrison duty on foreign service, the lawful wives of soldiers will be permitted to embark, in the proportion of 12 per company, including the wives of non- commissioned officers, and rations are to be issued i for them as long as ihe corps remains in a foreign gar- rison. When a regiment embarks for active field ser- vice, the number of soldiers' wives to be permitted to accompany it, is to be limited to six per company, or their embarkation to be totally forbidden, according to ihe nature of the service for which the regiment may be destined.

CATHOLIC RILL,.— This Bill enables Roman Catholics to sit and vole in cither House of Parliament, being in all other respects duly qualified so to sit and vote, upon | making, taking, and subscribing, the following Declar ation and Oath, instead of the Oaths of Allegiance, Abjuration, and Supremacy, and instead of making aud subscribing the Declaration against Transubstantiation, and thc Declaration against the Invocation of Saints now by law required :— " I, A. B. do hereby declare, that 1 do profess the Roman Catholic Religiou ; and 1 do sincerely promise and swear that I wil! be faithful aud bear true allegiance to bis Majesty King George the Third, and him will defend to the utmost of my power against all conspiracies and atlempts whatever, that shall be made against his person, crown, or dignity; aud 1 will do my utmost endeavour to disclose and make known to his Majesty, bis heirs, and successors, all treasons nnd traitorous conspiracies, which may be formed against him or tbem ; and I do faithfully promise to maintain, sup- port, ant! defend, to the utmost of my power, tbe succession to the Crown, ( which succession, by an Act entitled—' An Act for tlie further limitation of the Crown, and the better securing the rights and liberties of the subject,' is, aud stands limited to, the Princess Sophia, Electress und Duchess Dowager of Hanover, and the heirs of her body, being Protestants);' hereby utterly renouncing antl ab- juring any obedience or allegiance unto any other person claiming ui pretending a right to the Crown of this Realm. 1 do declare, that 1 do not believe that llie Pope of Rome, or any other foreign Prince, Prelate, Stale or Potentate, hath, or ought to have, any temporal or civil jurisdiction, power, superiority, ur pre- eminence, directly or indirectly, within this Realm ; I do further declare, that it is not an article of my faith, and that I do renounce, reject, and abjure, the opinion, that Princcs excommunicated by the Pope, or Council, or the Pope anrl Council, . or by any authority of the See of Rome, ur by any authority whatsoever, may be deposed or murdered by llieir subjects, or any person what- soever. I do swear, that I will defend, to the utmost of my power, the settlement and arrangement of . property within Ibis realm, as established by the laws I do swear that 1 do abjure, condemn, and detest, as unchristian uutl impious, the principle, lhat it is lawful to destroy, or any way injure any person whatsoever, for, or under llie pretence, ol such person being an heretic. I do declare solemnly before God, that I believe lhat nonet, iu itself unjust or immoral, can ever be justified or excused by or under tbe pretence or colour that il was done, either for the good of tbe Church, or in obedience to any Ecclesiastical Power whatever. 1 also declare, that it is not an article ofthe Roman Catholic Faith, neither am I thereby required to believe or profess, that the Pope is infallible, or lhat I am bound to obey auy order, iu its own nature immoral, though thc Pope, or any Ecclesiastical Power, should issue or direct such order; but, on the contrary, I hold, that it would be sinful in me to pay any respect or obcdicuce thereto. 1 further declare that 1 do not believe that any sin whatsoever committed by me, can be forgiven al the will of any Pope, or any Priest, or of any person or peisons whatsoever; nut that sincere sorrow for past sins, a firm and sincere resolution to avoid future guilt, and to atone to God, are previous aud indispeusible requisites to establish a well- founded expectation of forgive- ness ; and that any person who received absolution, without the'previous requisites, so far from obtaining thereby any remission of his sius, incurs the additional guilt of violating a Sacrament. 1 do reject and detest as an unchristian ana impious principle, that faith is not to be kepi wilb heretics or infidels. 1 do hereby disclaim, disavow, and solemnly abjure, any intention to subvert the preseut Church Esta- blishment, for the purpose of substituting a Roman Cai holic Establishment in its stead. I do solemnly swear lhat 1 will not use any privilege, power, or influence, which I do now, or may hereafter possess, to overthrow or disturb the preseut Church Establishment of the United Kingdom; and that 1 never will, by any conspiracy, contrivance, or device, whatsoever, abet others in itiy attempt to overthrow or disturb the same. And lhat I v. ill make known to his Ma- jesty, his heirs, and successors, all atlempts, plots, or con- spiracies, whether at home or abroad, which shall come to my knowledge, for effecting either of these purposes. I do solemnly, in ihe presence of God, profess, testify, and de- . ,,,,„ „-„,„ clare, that I do swear this Oath, and make this Declaration, j fed out of aud every part thereof, in tbe plain and ordinary sense of the words, without any evasion, equivocation, or mental reservation, whatever; and without any dispensation, al- ready granted by the Pope, or any authority of Ihe See of of British or Irish parents, shall be capable of exercising any episcopal duties or functions within the United Kingdom, or any part thereof; aud if any such persou shall presume to exercise such duties or functions within the United Kingdom, or any part thereof, he being thereof convicted by due course of law, shall be deemed guilty of and shall be liable to be sent out ofthe kingdom. No persou in Holy Orders, professing the Roman Catholic Religion, shall be capable of exer- cising any episcopal duty or function within the United Kingdom, unless he shall have been resident within the same for years next preceding Ins first exer- cising such episcopal duty or function ; and that if any person shall presume to exercise the same, not having been so resident, he being thereof convicted by due course of law, shall be deemed guilty of aud shall be liable to be sent ou » of the kingdom. These are the heads of Mr. Grattan's Bill, to which Mr. Canning has proposed several supplementary clauscs to Ihe following purport:— That every Roman Catholic Bishop to be hereafter appointed shail obtain a certifi- cate from five English Catholic Peers, named in the Bill, as to his loyalty; and any Bishop officiating without this certificate, may be sent out of tiie kingdom.— That all bulls or briefs received from Rome, shall be immediately coinmunicated to the Commissioners ap- pointed by the Bill, namely, five Catholic Peers, the Roman Catholic Bishop of the Loudon district, the Lord Chancellor, and one of the Secretaries cf Stale, being a Protestant, excepting such bulls as relate tu the spiritual concerns of individuals, which must be certified upon oath lo be purely of such a nature. The Commissioners to be sworn to secrecy. There is a simitar provisiou for Ireland. The Commissioners lo certify ihe loyal! y of Irish Bishops to be five Irish Catholic Peers. The Commissioners for the inspection of Bulls to be tbe same five Peers, tbe Bomau Catholic Archbishops of Dublin aud Armagh, the Lord Chancellor, and Secretary of Slate, or one of the Privy Council, being a Protestant. In Ihe event of I be death, or absence from the kingdom, of any ofthe live Catholic Peers, in either of Ihe kingdoms, a substitute to be appointed by his Majesty from'ainuug the remaining Catholic Peers; or, if there should not be a suf- ficient number of Catholic Peers, any Roman Catholic possessing a landed estate of i,' IUuo. a- year, Gentleman, may he appointed. Monsieur Chateaubriand, iu his Beauties of Christi- anity, speaking of the fall dt mau, gives tbe following curious NATURAL HisToaY of the SKUFENT. The present age rejects wilb disdain whatever lias any tincture of tbe marvellous : arts, sciences, morals, religion, are all stripped of their enchantments. The serpent bas frequently been the subject of our obsci various, and if we may venture lo speak out, we have often imagined lhat we could discover in him lhat pernicious sagacity and that sub- tlety which are ascribed to him by scripture, livery thing is mysterious, secret, astonishing, in ibis incomprehen- sible reptile. His moveineuts differ from those of all olher animals; il is impossible to say where his locomotive prin- ciple lies, for lie lias neither tins, nor feet, nor wings ; aud yet he flits like a shadow, he vanishes ashy magic, he re- appears and is gone again, like a light sz'lre vapour, or the gleams of a sabre in the dark. Now he curls himself iulti a circle, and projecis a tongue of lire ; now standing erect upon the extremity of his tail, he moves along in a perpen- dicular attitude as by enchantment, tie rolls himself into a ball; rises and falls iu a spiral line; gives to his rings llie undulations of waves ; twines round the branches of trie,., glides under the grass uf Ibe meadows, or skiais along the surface of water. His colours are not more determiiiaie than his activiiy; they change witb each new point of view, and like his motion they possess false splendor ami deceitful variety. Slill more astonishing in the rest of his manners, be knows, like a man polluted with murder, how to throw aside bis garment rlislaiued wilb blood, lest it should lead lo his detection. By a singular faculty, tne female can receive back iulo her body little monsters to which she has given birth * In thc month of July, 1721, we were travelling in Upper Canada, with several families of savages belonging to tbe nation of the Onontagues. One day, w hen we bad halted in a spacious plain on Ihe bank of the river Genesee, a rat- tle snake entered our encampment. Among us was a Cana dian who could play on the flute, and who to divert us, advanced against I he serpent w ith his uew species of wea- pon. Ou ( lie approach of bis enemy, the haughty reptile curls himself iuto a spiral line, Battens bis bead, inmates bis cheeks, contracts bis lips, displays his envenomed fangs, and bis bloody throat ; his double tongae glows like two flames of lire ; his eyes are burning coals ; his body, swollen with rage, rises and falls like the bellows of a forge; his dilated skin assumes a dull and scaly appearance ; nnd lit* tail, whence proceeds the death denouncing sound, vibrates with such rapidity as to resemble a light vapour. The Canadian now begins to play upon his flute; tbe serpent stares with surprise and draws back his bead. lu proportion as be is struck with the magic effect, his eyes lose their fierceness, the oscillations of his tail become slower, and the sound which it emits grows weak, and gradually dies away. Less perpendicular upon their spiral line, tbe rings of " ihe charmed serpent aie by degrees ex- panded, and sink, one after auother, upon I tie ground in concentric circles. ' I lie shades of az. ne, green, white, and gold, recover their brilliancy on bis quivering skin, aud slightly turning his head, be remains motionless in the attitude of attention and pleasure. .41 this moment Ihe Canadian advanced a few steps, pro- ducing wilh his flute sweet and simple uoies. The reptile inclining his variegated neck, opens a passage witb his head through the high grass, and beginstocreep after I ho musician, stopping when he stops, and beginning to follow bins again when be moves forward In this manner he was our camps attended by a great number of spec- tators, both savages and Europeans, who could scarcely believe their eyes when they witnessed this wonderful effect of harmony. Tbe assembly unanimously decreed that the !.„•-„. „„,..- ,, ' 1 • I i .1. \' serpent which had so entertained them should be permitted Rome, or any person whatever, and wnhout thinking thai | to escape 1 am or can he acquitted before God or man, or absolved of this Declaration, or any part thereof, although the Pope or any other person or authority whatsoever shall dispense with or annul the same, or declare Ibai it was null and void from the beginning.— So help me God." Roman Catholics makio ant! taking the above De- claration ami Oatli to be qualified to vote at elections of Members of Parliament, nnd to hold all civil and mili- tary offices, except the office of Lord High Chancellor, Lord Keeper, or Lord Commissioner of the f. lreat Seal of G real Britain, or of Lord Lieulenant or Lord Deputy, or Chief Governor or Governor of Ireland. Roman Catholics are also to continue disqualified to hold or to present to any office, benefice, place, or dignity, be- longing Io the Established Church, or the Church of | Scotland, or to any Ecclesiastical Court of Judicature, j or to any of the Universities of this realm, or to Ihe Colleges of Eton, Westminster, or Winchester, or to any public School of Royal or Ecclesiastical foundation within this realm, otherwise than as they arc by the law, as now existing, qualified lo hold or be presented to the same. No Roman Catholic shall present to any Pro- testant advowson. If any ecclesiastical patronage be attached to any office to which a Roman Catholic, is appoiuled, the patronage shall be executed bv such Protestant Privy Counsellor as his Majesty may appoint.

Roman Catholic Clergymen to take the following Oath :— " I, A. B do swear, that I will never concur in, or consent to, the appointment or consecration of any Roman Catholic Bishop, or Vicar Apostolic, in the United Kingdom, but sue h us 1 shall conscientiously deem to beof unimpeachable loyalty and peaceable conduct. And I do swear, thai I have not, aud will not, have any correspondence or communi- cation with the Pope or See of Rome, or with any Court or Tribunal, established, or to be established, by the Pope, or See of Rome, or by the authority of the same, or with any persou or persons authorised, or pretending lo be authoris- ed, by the Pope or See of Rome, tending directly or indi- rectly to overthrow or disturb the P. otesiant Government, ot the Protestant Church of Great Britain and Ireland, or the Church of Scotland, as by law established; and that 1 will not correspond or communicate wilh the Pope or See of Rome, or with any Tribunal established, or to be esta- blished, by the Popu or See of Rome, or by the authority of the same ; or with any person or persons authorised, or pre- tending to be authorised, by tbe Pope or See of Rome, on any matter or thing, uot purely Ecclesiastical." Roman Catholics discharging spiritual functions with- out taking this Oath, lo be deemed guilty of No persons born out of the United Kingdom, or the dominions thereunto belonging, except such as are bora * As this part of the description is so very extraordinary, it mav appear lo want eonniin, lion •< Mr. De Beauvois, s, related ill the American Philosophical Tran^ aclions, declared him, elf an eye- witness ot sucli a fact as is above slated. He saw a large rattle - snake, which he had disturbed in his walks, open her jaw s, and instantly five small ones, w hich were lying hy her, ru. hctl ir. to her mouth. He retired and watched her, and ' n a quarter of an borer saw her aijain d'urhargtr them. Tlie common viocr d, rs the same.'' — Shaw's General Zoology, vol. 3, p. 324, 374. BANKRUPTS, MAY 1.
