They arc equally ex cellent for liver, and gouty complaints ; for head aches, indigestions, and for other affections of the stomach aud bowels, too often the consequence of free Ii\ itig.

THE following well- attested case of a most se- vere, and perhaps, unexampled, complication of Human Maladies effectually cured by Madden's Vege- table Essence, must convince the most incredulous of its superior and sovereign powers. From Mr. John Sonden, Rye, Sussex. Honoured Sir— After the great benefit uliicli I hove received from jour excellent Medicine, the Vegetable Essence, and your unbounded generosity i » i bestowing it gratuitously, I should, * indeed, be wanting in grati- tude if i did uot return you my most sincere and hearty thanks. This is the only acknowlcdgmeii- t it is in my power to make; but I earnestly wish that, for the ;, ood of my afflicted ft How- creatures, my case should be made public. About twenty- two years ago, I got very wet, and* consequently, caught a very severe cold, which settled on my lungs. J have had the assistance of many Gen- tlemen of the faculty, and have tried various other means; but all to no purpose. The Asthma, as - they called it, grew so inveterate, that, frequently, for " three or four, and, sometimes, six or seven months, S was un- able to speak ; from the shortness of my breath. At last, about three 5ears ago, 1 was taken so ill that ( could not lie down in my bed either night or day; and many, very many times, did 1 think in the morning that f could not live till the evening, and 111 the evening* that 1 could not live till the morning. Besides thiv, I was so afflicted with the scurvy! tint I was continually breaking out iu sores and bods as big as eggs, one heal- ing up, and another breaking, out, successively; ny cough was extremely violent ; aud my feet and legs swelled to such a degree that those who saw them feared they would burst. In this* dreadful state I was confined two years aud ten months. Uut now, blessed be the Lord for his goodness and mercy to me, through the assistance of your valuable Medicine, all my complaints are removed, to the astonishment of ail who knew me j many of whom call me A Walking Miracle." 1 will only add that 1 shall always retain ihe most grateful sense of your kindness, that 1 am, Honoured Sir, Your most obliged and most humble servant Rye, June ( 5, 1812.

DEAR COUNTRYMEN - After nineteen years of ah eiw e and suffering, 1 have leceived with heartfelt jov your unanimous invitation to come amongst von I am now arrived, and 1 tiust, un- der Divine Providence, thai I shall be the means of restoring von to your ancient independence and piosperitv.— This is mv sole object, and 1 have the satisfaction to assure you, that it is equally the ohjei t of the Allied Powers. It is in particu- lar I he . wish of the Prince Regent of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and of his Government. Of this you will be convinced, by the magnanimous assistance which that power- ful country is going to give you, and which, 1 t US', will lav tin- foundation of ihe renewal of those old and intimate ties of friendship and alli- ance which have so long made the happiness of both states.

OCCURRENCE.— On Tuesday as Mr. Rice, an eminent solicitor residing in Dufour's- place, St. James's, was in conversation with persons on business, in the middle room of the first floor, a shot was fired into the back room, which entered through the window, and perforated the waiuscot. The hall was found on the floor, in a state of hint. It had, no doubt, been lired ( run, j, musket from Ihe buck |> reint° e » « j|' u Uouse in Poland street. The family of Mr. Bird, of Northrepps, Norfolk, last week narrowly escaped being poisoned b\ arsenic, which had been put into some cream intended for making bolter— The art was happily discovered in time to prevent ihe loss of human lives, by Mrs. Bird, who no- tiring ( bat two tats were taken violently sick inline diati'ly after taking some of the churn milk, recollected having given a quantity of the same to four pigs, which, on examination, she found 111 a dying state— Part of the milk remaining in the troughs was afterwards suh milted 10 the inspection of Mr. Karl, surgeon, of Cro- mer who pronounced it to he strongly impregnated wiih arsenic— i\ o i lue has yet led to the detection of the persons concerned in this villainous transaction. During the night of Tuesday last a murder was committed in the house of the Misses Gompertz, uimerlhe following circumstances : — It appeais that thiee Ladies ol thai name, reside neaily op posite to the principal entrance to Vauxhall- gar- dens; that their household consisted of three fe- male servants, and .1 footman; and a gentleman their cousin also resided in the house. The man servant's usual practice was, every night to file off a mu quel at eleven o'clock, and 10 reload it. He slept in the kitchen, where this musquet was always kept. At about four o'clock on Tuesday morning, one of fhe Misses Gompertz heard the repoit of a gun, and instantly rung the bell which communicated to the kitchen, hut received no answer.— On this she awoke her cousin and sisters and the female servants, and they went down stairs, and found the kitchen door fast ; they knocked, but receiving no answer, they at lengih broke it open, and found the man- servant lying dead by the window O11 fun her inspection, i appealed thai the house had been attempted by robbers, who had, by great force with an iron crow pulled down the window- shutters, and afterward taken out a pane of glass, which lay on the ground unbroken. It is supposed they were at this time heard by ( he footman, who, in opposing their en trance was fired upon, and killed on the spol; ihe musquet was taken away by the robbers, but found the nexf morning in a field adjoining ihe house. It was in a foul state, as if recently fired; but w understand one of the female servants says that ihe deceased was not able to load it ihe pie ceding night for want of powder, which he did no discover until after he had discharged it as usual The man servant's livery coat was also found out side the house next morning. At a late hour last . night no person was in custody on suspicion ; but we understand that a very vigilant officer in the Borough, Goff, is not without hopes of being able to apprehend '. lie murderers. On the evening of the general illumination fo the downfall of Bonaparte, ai Greenlaw, Berwick shire, ihe window of one of the French officers < parole there, was particularly noticed for its bri liancv, although they were exempted in the pro clamation from the Magistrate. Next morning he was likely to he roughly handled in the street by several of his countrymen, when he instanlly turned mund to the town people, who were col lecled together to witness his fate, and exclaimed 111 ihe best English he was master of, " I illumina because my Emperor got safe over de water, be fore dat corpal Sap blow de bridge up," and came off with applause fiom his comrades, amidst the cheers of ihe populace.— TYNE MERCURY.

Downing- Street, December 1, 1813. A Dispatch, of which the following is a copy, was this day received by Earl Bathurst, from Ge- neral Count Nugent, commanding' an army of His Imperial Majesty, in Italy. MY LORD, Trieste, Nov. I, 1813. As the troops under my command have been augmented by a body of British troops, which joined me, under the orders of Colonel Robertson, I think it right to inform your Lordship of their further operations. Bv my foimer letter, your Lordship has been informed of my proceedings, as far as the taking of Fiume, and the first operations in that neigh bourhood. Eugene Beauharnois had his principal force at Laybach, and my position annoying h iear. atid communication, he sent a force, six limes superior to mine, composed of sixteen battalions with twenty guns, to attack me. After a very well- fought action, on the J4th of September, and many movements which had been preconceited with Admiral Freemantle, the enemy's object en- tirely failed, and we got possession of the whole of Isliia, guarding the ridge of mountains which run from Trieste to Fiume. On the 21st 1 met Admiral Freemantle with part of the British squa dron, at Capo ' d'Istria which post we strongly for- tified. Our position stretching still more in the enemy's flank than before, forced him to keep a large force against me; General Radavojavich made very able use of this circumstance, and pushed the enemy 011 all sides towards Laybach. On the 23d a general movement took place. I marched to Bassavizza, near Trieste, and covering my left against that place, I moved towards Pre vald and Adelsberg. The enemy was new forced to a precipitate re- trest, and Eugene Beauharnois, after losing in dif- ferent actions about ten thousand men, mostly pri- soners, arrived the2dof October wiih about twenty thousand men at Prevald, taking up a line between that place and Optsthina, in communication " itli Trieste, At midnight, between the 3d and 4th ol October, I attacked his right at Optsthina, and forced it to retreat towards Garice. On the 5lh the brigades of Stahremberg and Csirick, forced the enemy's position at Santo Croce, at the same time that 1 took the bridge of Merna, near Gorizia. In the night the enemy passed the Izonzo, and we took possession of Gorizia. The Izonzo offering us now a strong position, I matched back upon Trieste with pari of my troops. mantle had already landed marines, and made pie parations for the siege. The rapidity of 0111 move, ments had prevented the transport of a battering train : there were, consequently, no other guns but those of ihe fleet, which Admiral Freemantle land- ed with great activity, at the same time the bat- teries were begun. On the 12th, the town of Trieste was taken by Baron D'Aspre, and we push- ed oo'r posts, on that side, close to the ramparts. Colonel Robertson landed from Lissa, with de- detachments of the 3 > thDe Roll's, the Corsicans, Calabrese, and the Italian Levy, wiih six pieces of field artillery and two mortars. The 16, h our fiie commenced, and in the even- ing the windmill, a strong round tower, was oc- cupied. Our works weie approached on different points, and the posts that the enemy occupied in advance were taken, except the Schanza. A com- pany of Croats got possession of a wood, three hundred yards from the ramparts, from whence, during the rest of ihe siege, they very much an- noyed the enemy at his guns. On ihe 23d the Schanza was taken, greatly owing to the coinage and exertions of Captain Rowley. Three batteries, for eighteen and thirty- two pounders, were imme- diately begun, and Capt Berenstil opened a trench, which fotined a first parallel, at the distance of four hundred yards. A mortar battery was built near the Schahza, qnd one fur howitzers, in ihe prolongation of ihe attack in front. Captain Rains occupied, with two mortars, a battery in the icar, which thr ew with great effect. As soon as these batteries were ready,' the enemy capitulated The labour of all these works was incredible, owing to the soft ground, occasioned bv the con- tinual rains, and" the- fire of the enemy; and no- thing but the extraordinary exertions of the men, and the peifect harmony which prevailed, could have ovetcome ihe difficulties. The officers, sea- men, and marines, of the British squadron, par. ticularly exeft6 l themselves, and weie animated by the presence of the Admiral, who himself su- perintended the works and directed the bat eries. Of the British land troops, the Calabrese had , the most opportunity of distinguishing themselves. Captain Ronca, a brave officer, was wounded; af- ter which the command devolved upon Lieutenant Butler, who shewed bravery and activity. Colonel Robertson was destined for the right of the attack, if it had been continued. Lieutenant Rains, of the Royal Artillery, directed the fire of the mor- tars with great effect and intelligence. Captain Angelo, of the 21st regiment, who was with me during the operations that preceded the siege, has rendered very essential service. Captain Berentstil, of the Italian Levy, acted as engineer, and deserves to be most particularly recommended ; he was continually in, the trenches without being relieved. The fall of the castle of Trieste closes one most important part of our ope- rations, and gives us the possession of the coast from Dalmatia to ihe top of the Adriauc, with all the roads that lead from thence. The whole of these operations prove how, by the mutual assistance of the army and navy, a very superior force will be at length overcome. I al- ways found Admiral Freemantle in readiness 10 support me; and, by the confidence which that gave me, 1 was enabled to undertake operations, which otherwise would have been destrucive It was this that allowed me to act in rear of theene. my, and give up frequently mv land communica- tion, convinced that it would soon be opened again. As to the siege of the castle of Trieste, your Lordship will perceive, by the above, that the greatest part of ihe ciedit must be given to Ad- miial Freemantle aud ihe navy, and it is my duty to acknowledge it. The result of this first part of the campaign, is, thai besides the killed and wounded in the diffe- rent actions, the enemy has sustained a loss in pri- soners, which is greater than the number of troops I command. I have the honour to be, & c. ( Signed) NUGENT, Major- General. Admiralty- Office, December 11, 18i3. Copy of a letter from Rear- Admiral Freemantle, to John Wilson Croker, Esq. dated on board the Milford, off Trieste, October 31, 1813. SIR, I have the honour to acquaint you, for the in- formation of the Lords Commissioners of the Ad- miralty, that I left Pola on the 19th ultimo, and arrived at Capo D'Istria on the 21st, when Gene- ral Count Nugent met me on ihe same day. Much credit is due lo Captain Gower, of the Elizabeth, for having opened a communication with the ai my, and for assisting mateiially in put- ting the place in a good slate of defence. On the 27th September, the army under Ge- neral Nugent, moved ; the Elizabeth was ordered off Mugia, whilst he Bacchante, with a company ol Austrian troops, proceeded to Dwino. remained at Capo D'Istri inconstant corres- pondence with General Nugent, who was haiassing the army of the Viceroy on his retreat, until the morning of the 5lh instant, when 1 sailed from Trieste and advanced the Elizabeth to Dwino. General Nugent, who continued to follow the enemy, left some troops near Trieste, and the port was completely blockaded by sea. About noon, on the loth, the enemy surprised us by opening a masked battery, with a field piece and a howitzer upon the Milford, whose stern was towards ihe shore, and began firing. Captain Markland in a few minutes got a spring upon the cable, aud opened a steady well- directed fiie upon the bat- tery ; in a quarter of an hour both guns were com- pletely disabled, two men killed and seven woun- ded, whilst npt* a person was touched on board ti e ship, although one shell exploded on the poop deck. On t| ie 10th I landed the marines and two field pieces under Captain Markland : on the lliti the General returned from Gorizia, having obliged the Viceroy to pass the Isonzo. It was then deter- mined to lay seige to the castle. By the 16th in the morning, we had twelve guns in iw<> batteries, which opened their fiie and continued neaily the day; towards the evening the enemy was driven from the Windmill, which was taken possession of by the Austrian troops, and iwo howitzers advanc- ed there. The filing was continued occasionally until in on on the 23d, by which time Captain Rowley had got a thirty- two- pouuder within two hundred yards of the Shanza, where there was a strong building with one gun and loop holes in it standing upon a hill, with a wall round it nearly fourteen feet high, an officer and sixty men. We had had some communication with the cas- tle in the morning, and ihe truce wa5 broke off at a very short notice by the enemy, who opened on all sides. The ihiriy- two- poundei was filed upon the Shanza. The first shot the gun recoiled, and the ground giving way, it fell backwards offthe platfoi 111 which was six feet above the level. It was fine to see Captain Rowley and his people immediately get a triangle above ihe woik, and the thirty- two pounder with its carriage, run up to its place again, under a shower of grape and mnsketry, which occasioned a seveie loss. To- wards evening, the enemy in the Shanza held out the white flag, and surrender ed to Captain Row- ley. Having now possession of Ihe Shanza, which commanded the castle and the Windmill lull, we sei to woik upon some advancedbatur. es will in tour hundred yaids of the castle, but the wea- ther was to wel, and the labour so great, that it was not until ihe morning of the 291 h that they weie complete, wheu the ene ny acceded to oyr ^ impositions for surrendering; the castle. We were Separed to have opened with eleven thirty- two. pounders, twelve eighteen pounders, four mor- tars, and four howitzers. Every captain, officer, and person In the squad- ron, has done his duty Captain Rowley has been as usual, most prominent on every occasion I admired the example he shewed at the attack of the Shaaza, wall the courage and activity of Lieutenants Hotham and Moore, and Mr. Hibbert Midshipman of the Eagle. Captain Angelo, of the 21st regiment, was foremost in shewing where to place fascines to protect the men, whilst the gun was getting up. I beg to recommend to the Lords Commissioners ' of the Admiralty, Captain Moresby, of His Ma- jesty's sloop Wizard. He commanded one of the batteries from the 16th until the ' 24th, when he was ordered to from a battery with four thirty- two- pounders, within breaching distance; in the course of fifty six hours, tinder all the disadvantages of weather, & c. he, with fifty men from Milford, and twenty from the wizard, completed the whole without any assistance whatever. And I must also mention the good conduct of Mr. William Watts, Acting Master of the said sloop, who was severely wounded ; Captain Dunn, of the Mer- maid, was also very assiduous on every Occasion. Captain Markland commanded the marines, and I have to thank him for exerting himself in every way ; particularly in the arrangements of stores and provisions; We have . at times had one thou- sand two bundled men on Shore, at work and in the batteries, and the general good conduct of the. officers, seamen, and marines, with the harmony that has invariably subsisted between the Austrian troops and our people, is quite gratifying to me. When we opened against the citadel it contained eight bundled Frenchmen, forty- five large guns, four mortars, and four howitzers. The consequences of the taking this place will lie felt throughout this country, and General Nu- gent has deservedly all the met it of having liberated these provinces in the space of two months with so small a force. I have the honour of forwarding the terms the capitu'ation ; about fifty sail of vessels were taken in this port. Our loss has not been so great as might have been expected under all the circumstances. I have the honour to be, & c. ( Signed) THOS. FRAS. FREE MANTLE. To John Wilson C'roker, Esq. & c; & c. & c.

" Thursday morning the Challenger gun- brig ar- rived at Plymouth, in nine days from Passage, with bis Serene Highness the Hereditary Prince of Orange. On his arrival he was saluted by the Port Admiral, and conducted to his lodgings, where he was quickly greeted by admiral Martin, General Blown, and many officers of the army and navy; and after waiting for half an hour, his Royal High- ness set off, unattended by any one, in a chaise and four, for London, cheered by the populace as he went on to Plymouth.— His Royal Highness had no knowledge of the cause of his quitting the army, or of the revolution which had taken place in Holland until his landing on English ground— intelligence to unexpected caused no little perturbation of mind Which was observed by all who were assembled to see him. Nothing of any importance had taken place in the army at the departure' of his Serene Highness. Friday, the Annual Exhibition of fat Oxen, & c. took place in Mr. Sadler's Repository, in Goswell- street. The cattle shewn was of the finest description. The Members of the Club assembled at the Freemason's Tavern, in the af- ternoon. LEWES, DEC, 13,1813. The South Cork Militia, stationed in our barracks, have received orders to march for Plymouth, to do the duty of the garrison at that place. The first division proceeds on its route this day, and the second to- morrow.— To do justice, to the conduct of this well- behav- ed corps, and to record its character as it de- serves, we need only say, that by the Colonel's praiseworthy example to his officers, progressive- ly followed by them down to the ranks, a dis- cipline and subordination is kept up in the re- giment, that renders it an ornament to the. ser- vice. Their departure will be much regretted by the inhabitants. Last Thursday about 200 volunteers from different militias stationed in the western part of this county, passed through this town on their route to the eastward, to join the 4.3d regiment. About twenty treated themselves with a ride from Brighthelmston, in a fish- van, which they engaged for the purpose. Our monthly Assembly at the Star Rooms, on Thursday night, had to boast the attendance of most of the nobility and gentry of the town and neighbourhood, together with Lord Folk- stone and the Hon. Mr. Gage. The dancing was kept up with great spirit, till a late hour. At our market to morrow, the bristle- mer- chants Will find exposed to sale, a much greater number of choice store pigs, than this market ever before produced for their selection. We believe they are of the Surrey breed. A letter received here yesterday morning from Margate, states, that the inhabitants are occa- sionally supplied with bread, butter, cheese, and divers other articles, from Holland, by the Dutch boats, at very reasonable rates. A loaf of good bread, in size equal to our quartern loaf, they purchase for five- pence, and good cheese at three- pence per pound. The Fox Family, who have recently gained settlements in this neighbourhood, threaten much mischief to farmers, not only as it regards their poultry, but their flocks also, which, at the time of lambing, will, no doubt, be made pretty free with, in the prowling excursions of these nocturnal maurauders. A few nights ago they killed six or seven turkies, on the premises of Mr. Awcock, of Barcomb. Those, liable to be injured, would therefore do well to watch their motions, and be prepared to give them a warm reception, whenever hunger, or a thirst for blood, may lead them to invade their terri toritories. At the Smithfield Annual Exhibition of fat stock, on Friday last, Mr. Samuel Selmes, of Beckley, was awarded the two prizes, of twenty guineas each, in the second class, as under, viz. For his five- year old Sussex Ox," bred and fed by himself on grass, hay, and 160 oil cakes. And for a five- year old Sussex Ox, bred and fed by himself, on grass, hay, and 200 oilcakes, each travelling 57 miles to the shew. In class XI, a prize of 10 guineas was awarded to Mr John Ellman, jun, of Firle, near this town, for three 20 months old South- down Wethers, bred by himself, on grass, hay, and turnips. The embarkation of the troops destined for Hol- land, commenced at Deal, on board ships of war, fitted out for that purpose, on last Thursday after- noon, when the 35th, 52nd, and 95th regiments, were conveyed on board the Dectator, Regulus, and Brune. We are desired to state that Lord Gage and Viscount Hampden have each contributed a handsome donation to the Benevolent Fund, es- tablished in this town, for the occasional Relief of distressed soldiers wives, & c. Among the good effects which are almost daily arising from this source of charity, it may be gratifying to the subscribers to hear that three poor women, wives of Irish soldiers, left destitute of every necessary of life, publicly declared, that their lives had been preserved by the aid of the soci- ety. At the request of John Marten, the phi- lanthropic distributor, we give the following co- py of a letter he unexpectedly received from a soldier's wife of the 42d regt. who had been assisted by the society, on her journey to Scot- land, with two young children :— Dundee, 19th August, 1813. Si-,— I take this opportunity of writing these few lines to in- form you, that I am safe arrived in Sco'land, and had a very good passage. My best wishes to you, kind Sir; I wish the blessing of God may attend you all the days of your life, and that he may prosper your trade, and give you of his Grace, which maketh rich, and aideth sorrow. I beg of yon to be so good as to tell the Colonel's wife,* how that 1 am got safe home. I shall write to my husband, and he will write to you from Spain, to thank you for your kindness to me, From your dutiful Servant, JANE FAIRLY. * The Lady alluded to is Mrs. Stirling, wife of Colonel Stirling, of the 42d Regt. who for many years has distinguish- ed herself, by her care for, and kindness to, the Soldiers' Wives, in the absence on their husbands, and was an early sub. scriber to the benevolent Fund. One day last week, a child about three years of age, belonging to Mr. Adams of Catsfield, thoughtlessly left by its mother in a room where there was a Targe fire, was so dreadfully burnt, by its clothes catching the flame, that it died, a few hours afterwards in extreme ago- ny. It is extraordinary, that the frequency of these shocking accidents, does not put people more upon their guard against them. BIRTH.

SIR, Your inserting this letter in your next week's paper, will at once shew your attention to what concerns the inhabitants of Lewes and its Vici nity, and oblige A CONSTANT READER. I attended at the Lewes Subscription School, on Friday last, in consequence of a notice of a Special Meeting to be held, that a plan might ie submitted to the Subscribers for the " pur- chase of the building with a view to perpetuate the Institution. No objection was made to the plan, tho' it was with propriety suggested, it would have been better to have been submitted at an Annual Meeting. Much credit is due to the five Directors, for their attention, who came forward themselves, and mentioned five others, who would raise the 50o|. wanted, ill shares of | 501. each. This will reduce the annual expence ! of 55l. the present rent, to the sum of 231. which makes a saving of 301. per annum. The annual subscriptions are to pay the interest, and also by degrees, the principal. The building is also to be mortgaged as A security which is va- lued at 7351. so that the lenders cannot be sup- posed to run any risk. It is to- be regretted that a resolution was brought forward to perpetuate an original motion, that for seven years no al- terations in the rules should take place ; one of these rules is, that the teachers should be of the established church ; to this the dissenters origi- nally agreed for the sake of harmony and una- nimity, but could hardly be prepared to expect from the summons for the late meeting, they should be called upon to vote a perpetuity of a rule which, to say the least, excludes them from an equal privilege with those of the establish- ment. There are in the town of Lewes as many dissenters from the establishment, as members of it, and I have no doubt if this stigma, if I may use the expression, is removed, there will be as many children sent by them ; why, therefore, should a School— a Laneasterian School, have a rule perpetual with ati invidious distinction ? If the dissenters had made a proposal that the teachers; or one of them, sb, otild be a dissenter, would many— would any of the church- people be subscribers ? But the dissenters desire no such resolution to be passed ; all they contend for is, an eligibility to have one of their body appointed at the end of the first seven years ( this distinction I could wish to be attended to) which can never be supposed will take place un- less superior qualifications should make it desi- rable ; and in addition to this, a very great pro- portion of the subscribers are dissenters. Sup- pose, for argument- sake, a dissenter, every way qualified to be the master of a school, should offer to undertake the office, from the most generous motives, and give his services gratis— suppose, which is not impossible, Jos. Lancaster himself should come and reside at Lewes, and from his well known zeal to instruct the children of the poor, should offer himself without a view to any reward, but the pleasure arising from a consciousness of benefiting the rising generation; if this rule is perpetuated you could not accept his offer; why, therefore should the subscribers shackle themselves, and bring forward a resolution that must he offensive to all consistent dissenters ? I can but hope at the meeting next Friday, appointed for the confir mation of the late resolutions, an exception will be made to that which binds the subscribers to make no alterations or improvements in the rules of the school, for an unlimited time. I have only to express my hope that no members of the establishment will construe this letter as disre- spectful to them, much less charge me with a wish to excite any animosity between them, and the dissenters; on the contrary, my desire is, to encrease their love and regard for one another; but I should not think myself faithful to the denomination of Christians to which I belong, nor to have been that friend to religious liberty which I profess, had I not pointed out an attempt to withhold from them a privilege their numbers and characters entitle them to. A DISSENTER. BRIGHTON, DEC 13, 1813. Our fashionable promenades yesterday, pre- sented a very gay and lively appearance, being grouped with company, which on a SUMMER'S DAY, formerly, would have led the town to have boasted of its plenitude. The most distinguished of our last week's ar- rivals are, Viscountess Pery— Countess Henry, de Solls— Earl Lucan— Marchioness Downshire — Lady John Campbell, & c. On last Tuesday evening, the Duchess of Richmond, with her accustomed condescension and goodness, patronized a Ball, at the new Assembly Rooms, Chichester, for the benefit of the widows, wives, and children of soldiers, who fell in the service, and are now serving under the gallant Wellington, which was attend- ed by nearly all the nobility and gentry in the city and neighbourhood, upwards of 300 persons being present. The ladies for the most part, were decorated with orange sashes, ex- hihiting the words— ORANGE BOVEN. The gentlemen wore orange- coloured watch- strings, ornamented with the same motto. Last Monday a quantity of contraband silk goods, was seized by some Revenue Officers, in the house of a female in the South- street, Chichester, who had been too public in her il- licit transactions. The price of posting has been- partially re- duced here to fifteen pence the mile.. On Monday evening last the members of the Apollo Club, at Chichester, gave a public night, at their rooms, at the White- Horse Inn, South- street, to celebrate the glorious successes obtained by the British and Allied Powers, over the Ruler of the French People,— together with the Emancipation of Holland. Upwards of one hundred and fifty persons were present ; the band of she Local Militia attended, and per- formed many loyal and military airs. The chair was taken by the President of the Apollo, Mr. W. Newman, who after a few loyal toasts, and appropriate glees, delivered the following ad- dress :— Gentlemen, With the greatest diffidence I beg leave to congratulate yon on the great occasion that has called us together this evening : We are met to celebrate a series of the most glorious and happy events to this country,— nay, to all Europe,— as have occurred in the memory of any one present. We behold the nations around us ( that so lately were struggling under the bond of op- pression) bursting from their ignominious fetters, and the stan- dard of liberty uplifted in their arms. The despotic Ruler of the French nation, who not long since, gave laws to the whole Continent, and even threatened this happy Isle with his ven- geance, is driven back within his own territory, and blockaded there, by troops he so often vauntingly despised. Once more ( since the days of our Fifth Harry) do we behold the English banners waving victoriously, in the plains of France! Well may we now exclaim in the language of our immortal Bard, " O noble English, that could entertain, with half their force, the full pride of France." I shall, now, Gentlemen, with you' permission, give the watch- word of the brave Hollanders, ( with three times three) ORANGE BOVEN ! and may our next meeting be for the celebration of an honourable and last- ing Peace." At one o'clock, " God save the King," was sung in a most impressive manner by the whole company, accompanied by the band ; soon af- ter which the company dispersed, highly de- lighted with the evening's amusement. His Grace the Duke of Richmond, attended the Prince Regent's levee, on Friday last, on being appointed Governor of Hall. Chichester market, on Wednesday, had a Very large supply of fat stock, and especially; sheep, which met a dull sale, at very reduced prices. Beef Was more in demand, and rather high in price. In the corn- market but little business was transacted; wheat was rather upon the start, having sold at from l'?!. to ! 8l. per load. Barley, 27s. to 3os. per quarter.—— Oats, none sold. DIED.— On Thursday last, at Selsea, Mr. John Forden, yeoman, aged 81 years. The de- ceased was the oldest inhabitant of the island, and much respected by all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance. On Saturday last, very suddenly, at the same place, Mrs. Fern. She was conversing, appa- rently in good health, with Mr. Saunders, a neighbour, when she dropped down in a fit, and almost instantly expired. On Friday Mrs. R. Boniface, of Easter gate. She was spending the evening at a friend's house, where she was taken suddenly ill, and died ear- ly the following morning, without uttering a syllable. To The Editor of the Sussex Advertiser. Sir, THE MADRAS SYSTEM of Education, con- ducted on the plan of the Rev. Dr. Bell, has been lately introduced in the Parish of Billing hurst, in the County of Sussex— A School- Room has been fitted up, and there are now 116 children in the school, and more expected. On the 21st. of November last, a sermon was preached in the parish church, for the bene- fit of the school, and a handsome collection made after the sermon. The Committee can- not close this account, without their warmest thanks to the Rev. Mr. Phipps, Rector of Nuthurst, for his benevolent, impressive, and appropriate discourse on the solemn and affect- ing occasion. To THE EDITOR OF THE SUSSEX ADVERTISER. SIR, Twelve months have elapsed since I acciden- tally saw an advertisement about the FREE CHA- PEL. of St. James, when, supposing it an eligi- ble situation, I addressed the Earl of Chichester on the subject, and I owe much to that truly re- spectable Nobleman for recommending me, so strongly, as a proper minister for the chapel. Having read a pamphlet, called " The Case of the Trust- Governors," with much reluctance, I feel it my duty to correct its errors, as far as they relate to myself, thro' . the medium of your paper. There are two errors in the last line of the 9th page, " John Ellison, a Friend of Mr. Carr." For until last December I was not more than personally known to that very respectable clergyman. Another very great error is that " Sir Thomas Bernard, in consequence of the desire of Mr. Ellison, suggested, on his part, to the Bishop, the idea of Mr. Ellison's being appointed joint- minister with Mr: Marsh'" The fact is this, on making myself known to Sir Thomas Bernard, in an interview with that gentleman, I proposed writing to the Bishop, to whom I was well known, and to Lord Egre mont, to whom I was more than personally known. Sir Thomas observed, my writing, to them could answer no purpose, for the Bish- op and Lord Egremont had no more to do with the chapel than Lord Chichester. Mr. Carr was also mentioned, Sir Thomas said " Mr. Carr had no power at all in it, it. was vested in Trust- Governors." At the conclusion of the conver- sation, Sir Thomas said, " Mr. Ellison, you had better leave it to me, if you will I will ma- nage it for you." I verily believe these were his exact words. Though I had reason to con- clude with the prudent Trojan, that when the Greeks offered assistance, they were to be sus- pected ; yet as the Chapel was no object to me, but as a situation which might give my mind more active employment, I put ray interests into Sir Thomas's hands, with the exception of a letter to Mr. Thomas Kemp, and the answer of that Gentleman, wherein he says " He cannot on this or on any future occasion give me port," was quite satisfactory as , to the plan pro- posed for the ministry of the Chapel of James, and how much dependence I was to place on Sir Thomas Bernard's exertions. Soon after, on meeting Sir Thomas in the street, he coldly ob- served " He wished to see me," to tell me there was to be no joint minister ( his nephew, it ap- pears, is now joint- minister) that Mr. Kemp and Mr. Mortlock had so agreed, that he was with them, and that they constituted a majority ; but if I liked to apply to Mr. N. Kemp, or Mr. Peischell, or indeed to write to the Bishop or my Lord Egremont, I was at liberty so to do." My answer was, " It would have been more liberal to have told me at once the Chapel was engaged,"— and this Sir Thomas must re- collect, if the splendid hospitalities of the En- glish Maecenas at Auckland, have not erased such condescending recollections. I also hinted the prevalent report, that the chapel was not to be friendly to the establishment,— and I satisfi- ed myself on that point. A fourth mistake is in the 9th line of page 10, for things are great or small by comparison, but I do not wish Sir Thomas to " speak for me either to the King, or the Captain of the Host." These, Sir, are the mistakes in the pamphlet, which I feel it my duty to correct. Before I conclude, I must notice the letter of my respected Dioeesan, as far as it con- cerns myself, and as it is inserted in the " Case of the Trust- Governors." The bishop's words are, " Mr. E. tho' well calculated for the Chapel as a popular preacher." Tho' the Bishop has been kind enough often to recommend me a more pub- lic situation, yet the secretum iter et fallentis serrieta vitce, or " the secret tracks of the de ceiving life bid fairer for real happiness," than to depend Arbitrio Popularis Aura, or as Sene- ca has it, Etas per taciturn fluat For whoever in a town where religion has more branches than the Nile has mouths, wishes monstrari digito prcetereuntium, wishes for a situation not likely to afford him real and permanent comfort, he should have the nerves of Hercules, and the po- licy of Ulysses ; for tho' Peace- offerings'' may he held out. by separatists, and the dove proffer her olive- branch in return, yet she will find it necessary at last to put on the serpent and reject them.— The Bishop continues " How could Mr. E. offer to undertake the office, being so palpable a dereliction of primary should have undertaken it on - sentiment requires a small portion of spiritual residence would not have been infringed upon One remark- more— The pamphlet says, : Mr. Ellison ( as afterwards appeared) stated some objections, in point of doctrine to the Bishop by letter."—. Wherever I find any thing hostile in- tended to that church of which I consider it my greatest happiness to be a Member and a Minis- ter; or when I perceive an enemy to our Esta- blishment endeavouring to fix himself in any of our pulpits, in order to disturb THE RELIGIONS peace and comfort, of a regular congregation, I would put the Bishop of the Diocese on his guard against granting that em my a licence, and I am sure any Bishop would thank me for it, in the same way as any ' ftunurttui of his sect ( for all sects have their ' KsnpWjtroi} would be glad to be apprized of an enemy's coming in amongst them. And in regard to the Free Cha- pel of St. James, no 9ei0, AajTojil. suit shall• prevent me from acting according to the dictates of my own conscience, for their favours , will not waft me into Abraham's bosom, nor will their frowns hurl me into a place of torment Hoping the shadow of their Tutelary Saint will yet prove as efficacious as that of St. Peter, and cure their, diseases.

WOERDEN, NOV. 30. Wednesday, the 24th instant, was certainly the most dreadful day evci* known in this town, and which lias been productive of general sorrow and extreme misery. On the preceding evening, about S50 men of the Na- tional Guards from the Hague, with 3 pieces of cannon, now appeared before this town, and demanded of the French Commandant, who had possession of it, with about men of his own nation, to surrender it. This ' was fulfilled ; and, ou the same evening the town re- reived its new garrison. On the following morning, being the J4th November aforesaid, the new garrison was unexpectedly surprised by a very numerous body of French troops from Utrecht, provided with some pieces of artillery, and after a small skirjiish, in which some men fell on both sides, taken by storm. Now coll.. nienced the dreadful plundering, devastation, and in- human murders. The houses, which could not he open- ed otl account of the doors and windows having been fastened, were beaten open by artillery. Cabinets, chests, and boxes, were cut and broken open, the ready money, uncoined gold and silver, jewels, linen, and clothing, stolen; mluable papers destroyed; glasses, china, and oilier earthenware broken and thrown into the streets; the poor inhabitants, already frightened to death, and begging for their lives, were forced to dis- cover where they had secreted their valuables. Death and destruction had at length penetrated into every habitation ; the blood of the most virtuous husbands and fathers, of the best mothers, of grey- haired unci cms, of lender infants, stain the walls of their peace- ful habitations, and streamed out of the houses along the streets. I our and twenty inhabitants of this little town, which had already glittered by the barbarians, were cruelly murdered, without any reason given for such proiced- ing. About 50 others were wounded, in-. re or less se- verely, some of whom must certainly die of their wuunds. Not even the Ministers of any religion were spared, although they had fled to the altar. Old men upwards of eighty years, ami infants to their mothers' arms, were immediately shot, or slalll by the sword. A woman in child- bed, and who would have been de- livered of twins, was deliberately shoi through the body, whilst laying in her bed, having uncovered tier, and the bedstead set on tire, after miserably murdering the mother arid her offspring. No tears oY the poor erea-' tures, begging for mercy, nn cries of kneeling children, could soften the hearts of these miscreants, who, oil the contrary, and with loud laughter and derision, dis- graceful to humanity, carried their curelty so far as to commit their murders before the eyes of the nearest relations, throwing out tl » e bleeding bodies, covered with dirt, in presence of the despairing widows and shrieking children, and committing all abuses On the nuked corpses. It is impossible to give any particu- lar statement of the atrocities and cruelties committed in this slight description— the pen refuses, and mo- desty forbids to describe all the enormities which these cannibals committed, and who have rendered the for- mer French tyranny a mere pastime, Languor and mortal dread is to be read ill every countenance ! Al the first meeting, people of all ranks, embrace each other, wondering to meet again alive. The bloody streets, the broken buildings, the furni- ture destroyed, form a picture from which every human bein » must start with horror. Those who formerly dis- pensed lo others, are now themselves in want of the first necessaries of life, and cast their longing eyes to their fellow Netherlander, who, by the Divine Providence have been preserved from lhese executioners. They remained here so long as till they had carrii d off their bloody booty, with stolen horses and carriages, and then, like monsters, who shun the light of day, left the town in silence, like thieves, in the night of tile 27ill, leaving nothing behind them but blood and tears. God preserve the Netherlands in future from such miseries, and fill the hearts of all benevolent people with feelings nf due humanity towards these un- fortunate creatures, and with gratitude for not having partaken of these dreadful sufferings, so as to contribute as much as possible to restoring these losses, which they themselves never can do without assistance from others, nor even then, to the half part, until that the irreparable loss of dear relations and valuable friends shall have been alleviated by religiun and time.— ( GRAVENHAAGSCHE COURANT, DEC. 3.) A letter from the Russian General Benkendorff, to his Excellency General Krayenhoff, Governor of the cily of Amsterdam, published the 1st of December, states that a detachment of his tioops had taken pos- session of Muyden, when they captured one piece of artillery and the whole garrison, consisting of 400 men and twelve Officers. The Dutch troops particularly distinguished themselves conjointly with the Cossacks. A heavy firing is mentioned as being theu heard in the direction of Naardeu.—( SAME DATE.) LONDON.

The dry weather through the principal part of the month, lias been of great service to the young wheats. The continuing dccline of prices for all kinds of grain, has created so much alarm through the lauded interest that some faither legislative measure is naturally ex pected. to prevent an importation, that might carry that reduction below what national policy could prudently sanction. The season has been kindly for raising wheat eddishes and other lands for fallow, and for the progri ss of enclosing common lands, great extents of which are taking in, iu Cambridge, Huntingdon, and other shires. 1 lie early turnip crops, except the . Swede's, have gone off in Norfolk and Suffolk, having suffered by the two or three severe frosts iu the beginning of the month, and by which those later sown are also so checked, as lo promise hut little produce. Lean Stock, particularly beasts, have fallen, from the probable shortness of spring feed ; but pigs continue dear. ' 1 he meat markets con- tinue still to command high prices for prime beef, mutton, and veal. Hay fetches mure money. The wool trade is brisker, particularly furlong fleeces. CURE FOB THE FOOT ROT IN SHEEP.— Pare to the sound part, then apply u feather dipped iu the spirit of salt, holding it a minute to the part, anointing it over directly w ith the tiucture of benzoin. Three times is said to he sufficient for a cure, without any wrapping up of the foot.— The truth is, any of the sharp, corrosive ap- plications are proper iu ibis case, probably the above as good as any other; but the best of all enres is preven lion, by keeping the sheep from cold and wet grounds when they gel chilblains, ' Earl Fitzwilliam, 111 his speech to the Peterborough, & c. troops of yeomanry last week, congratulated them on the probability of things being shortly restored to their old order, in consequence of the brilliant successes of the Allies 011 the Continent ; and his Lordship par ticnlarly alluded to the declension in the price of com, — adding, that he should regulate his rents accordingly. LONGEVITY.— A man, named Samuel Traves, is now living at High Ham, near Langport, Somerset, who is in his loatlr year of his age, and enjoys all his fa- culties ;— he never lost a tooth since he was a boy ; he is able to read the smallest prtut, and shave himself without the use of spectacles, and gnes to wutk every day at some employment in husbandry. Tile volunteering of tile Militia into the Line and Provisional Corps, has commenced; hut as yet the men have not embraced the alteration of ser- vice to the extent that the plan seemed to promise. The Worcester Regiment, always a spirited vo- lunteering corps, has turned out only about eighty men ; its proportionate number is about 450.— The Ross- shire and Inverness regiments very few. SICILY. All accounts, both ancient and modern, agree 111 representing Sicily as one of the nio^ t highly favoured spots upon ilie surf. ee of the globe The fertility of its soil, and the delightfulness of its climate, cannot easily be surpassed. It appears calculated to he the very garden of Europe. Every thing, from the grand article of human consumption, which it yields in won- derful profusion, to the finest of the tropical produc- tions, is included within its vegetative range. Its opu- lence, in the physical sense of the word— the productive powers of its soil— the revenue to i's owners, which it is capable of being made to yield,— is probably far greater than what could he derived from any other spot of equal dimensions 111 Europe. Mr. Blaquiere, an officer of the royal navy, in his political account of Sicily, recently publ » > hed, adducing at the same time the authority of the Abbate Ferrara, describes " the fecundity of this island as amazing, arising solely from its happy temperature of climate, and natural richness of soil;— the soil, excepting in the immediate neigh- bourhood of Mount Etna, where it is volcanic and highly productive, being invariably composed of a cal- careous loamy mould, descending every where to 1111 amazing depth." Amid a variety of other favourable circumstances, the Abbate Ferrara states, that " copious dews supply the place of rain during the early part of summer; and the snow, accumulated during the winter on the mountains, begins to melt towards June, and, forming a thousand rivulets, gives new vigour and excitement to the growing crops." Mr. Blaquiere adds, ( a circumstance to the importance of which sufficient attention is seldom paid,) that " the coasts of the island are in every part profusely stocked with the most exquisitely flavoured fish." The sea is, in that case, a still more inexhaustible fond of riches than the laud. Along wi .1 these accounts of the productive powers and natural HE lies of Sicily, we have also accounts of its actual poverty and desolation. These, it is agreed by travellers without a dissenting voice, are excessive and deplorable. Not only are not the singular advan- tages of Sicily improved so as to give superior prospe- rity to the country, and happiness to the people; but haidly any where on the face of the earth exists a more wretched country, or a more suffering people, ' OLD BAILEY. The Old Bailey Sessions having ended on Wednesday last, the Recorder proceeded to pass sentence on ilie prisoners. Joseph Drew May, who was found guilty for altering a victualling hill, 011 being asked what he bad to say why sentence of death should not he passed on him, addressed the Court.-- 1* When he compared his present situation to what it was when he last addressed the Court, he felt it to be more awful; he was then from his agitation of mind, scarcely able to collect hi ideas; at Ihe present moment he felt a still greater dif fieulty. It was true he ha'd had a patient and impartial tlial, and a jury of his country bad found him guilty ; si ill he was not so. for the forger of the Bill had fled his country. The degraded situation he was placed in made life not desirable to him, only on account of his wife, children, parent, brothers, and sisters; the stig- ma that would be cast upon ihem by his dying an igno- minious death, pained him extremely. He begged that the Recorder would report to the Prince Regent and his Council that he did utter the bill, but that he had never seen it in its altered state, so that he could not have been guilty of the forgery, or uttering it knowing it to be forged. A person who had been goilty of such a crime, and who knew that detection must follow, would it not be natural that he would try to es cape ? Did he do so ? No ; he was taken into custody in the midst of his business. The Bill had passed thro' many hands unaltered, but that was not a reason why it should not come into bis hands altered, particularly when be put such implicit confidence 111 his clerk ; it was proved that he had the use of his, ( the prisoner's) checks, and could have filled them up for what sums he pleased. He could have shewn on the trial, by the most respectable witnesses, that his business was of such an extent that he was not able to keep regular books, and that it was in the power of his clerk to have committiej the forgery, without liu having any know- ledge of it. He begged also that the Learned Recor- der would have the goodness to report to the Prince Regent and his Council, that the Jury had deliberated for three hours before they brought in their verdict. He had nothing more to say, than that he Implored the Royal clemency for his family and himself." The Recorder then, in a most impressive manner, passed sentence of death 011 linn. Lately died at Swaffham, of the small- pox, ( which had been purposely brought into the parish,) . Robert Smith, aged 28. This man bad been inoculated for the small pox about 17 years ago, had gone regularly through the disorder, and had several pustules, many nf which had left their marks still visible upon him As cases of. small- pox after cow- pox have been indus- triously circulated, 11 seems but justice to the public to have it known, that even tlie small- pox is not an absolute preservative against having that disorder again; and it must render a similar argument in cases of cow- pox of very little weight.— It is remarkable that there are1 111 Swaffham two other persons who have bad the small pox twice; and possibly, upon inquiry, many sueh instances might he fnund in other places. It is also worthy of iemark, that though several persons have lately had the small pox in this parish, not one of ihose who had been previously vaccinated have taken the infection; several also who have had the cow pox 1 some of them many years ago) have been inoculated for the small pox, hut without the slightest indisposi- tion following, except a trifling inflammation on the part, which would be the consequence of introducing any other acrid matter tinder the skin. The Grand Lodge of Scotland, according to ancient usage, assembled in the Parliament- house, Edinburgh, 011 Tuesday, the 30th ult. for th purpose of electing their Office- bearers for the ensuing year, and for celebrating the Anniversary of Saint Andrew, the tuielar Saint of Scotland. Immediately after the election, the Most Wor- shipful, the Lord Viscount Duncan, Grand Mas- ter, the Right Worshipful Lord Kinnaird, Grand Master Elect, with the other Office- bearers of the Grand Lodge, accompanied by the Magistrates, and a considerable number of gentlemen of dis- tinction, along with the Proxies of the Grand Lodge, from different Lodges in Scotland, and attended by the several Lodges, walked in pro cession from the Parliament House to Freemason's Hall, with torch- light. The number of brethren in the procession was upwards of one thousand, and the novelty of the scene, ( no similar proces- sion having taken place for several years, att acted an immense number of spectators. The streets were lined by detachments from the different, re- giments now on duty there. This procession, though numerously attended beyond all former example, was conducted with the most pet feet order and regularity. The Grand Master presided in the Great Hall, and the Substitute Grand Master in the New Room, and the evening was passed with that har- mony and hilarity for which this ancient honour- able Order has ever been so eminently distin- guished. At Midgham Cocking, Surrey, 011 Monday, a puise of aol. was made up toi a pugillistic con- test, between a man of the name of Herring, WHO teaches science in his way round the country, and a land- digger, or navigator, from Chobham, of tile name of Slaughter, who had won mam casual TURN- UPS, and wis half a stone heaviei than his antagonist. The men set- to in earnest, Herring blevi Ins n an freely in the first round,. but he was hit down uii'i ninth violence by a light- handed blow e 11 the neck, which drew claret from the ear. and tool; the fast fighting out of lili. l. til the se- cond round. Herring broke away and made some good parries to recover himself, and he got a light fall.— In the thiid round much fighting took place, and Slaughter's features suffered much transforma- tion ; he went down weak from loss of blood.— Herring kept the advantage until the 12th round, . when he received some torturing hils about the body, being unable to avail himself of science. Ten other rounds were bravely contested when victory was declared for Slaughter, who, by re- peated hits, had swelled the left side of his antago- nist's body hideously. The combat lasted fifty mi- nutes. The last India Gazettes contain dispatches from Sir Gore Ousley, the British minister at the Court of Persia ; which state that the war between the Russians and the Persians was carried 011 with un- abated animosity, and with various success. The British Officers in the service of Persia, were placed in a most embarrassing predicament, in consequence of the restoration of peace between Great Britain and Russia, but they felt themselves bound in honour not to abandon the cause iu which they were engaged. We feel great tegret in adding, that on the 31st Oct. in an action, in which Ihe Persians, commanded by the Prince of Persia, were completely surprised and defeated, that gallant and distinguished officer, Major Chris- tie, lost his life, through the obstinacy and igno- rance of the Persian commander : " The Prince ( says Sir Gore Ousley), having neglected the outposts of the camp, ihey were attacked two hours befote day break by the ene- my, when the surprise rnss complete. About this time Major Christie had obtained permission to take possesion of a height which he had wished to occupy on the preceding evening. He was going out of the camp, when lie saw an indistinct object passing before him, and called out in Turkish, " Who goes there ?" The answer was a volley from the Russian line, drawn up in front of him, followed instantly by a general charge, by which his corps was totally routed, and nearly the whole butchered. Major Christie received a ball in his neck, and had his horse shot under him. Doctor Cormick, who was with him, having an earlier glimpse of the Russian line, galloped along it and escaped. The field was a scene of carnage: no resistance was made. The Persians lost 2,000 killed, 500 wounded, and 1500 prisoners ; II pieces of cannon out of 13 were taken. The Prince of Persia narrowly escaped falling into the enemy's hands. Two days after the action, the body of Major Christie was found bv Dr. Cormick on the field of battle, stripped of his uniform, and pierced with 11 mortal wounds: his arms and hands were much cut and hacked. The Russians, after this COUP- DE- MAIN, returned to their for- mer encampment. They had since meditated an attack on Girvan, or Tebreez, where great alarm prevailed; but a formidable insurrection of the Persians, headed by Alexander Murza, presump- tive heir to the principality, had prevented the execution of their design. Many of their garri- sons had been defeated and cut to pieces by the Georgian Insurgents." SHAM PARSON.— Tuesday, Thomas White, alias Richard Williamson, alias Richard Thomas, alias William Whitfield, alias William Whitmore, was committed to Gloucester gaol, on a charge of forgery.— The prisoner, at the period of the for- gery being committed, was officiating as curate of Newnham, tinder the feigned pretence of being possessed of the clerical functions; but after con tinuing there some few weeks, he was suspected to be an impostor; and, on being pressed for his cre- dentials, absconded, having, under his assumed character, in which he gained great favour among the parishoners by a correct discharge of its duties, defrauded several of them of various sums of mo- ney, goods, & c. After leaving Newnbam, he went into Cornwall, and by similar pretences, in- troduced himself into the curacy of Talland, near Looe, where he found his way into the first com pany, became very popular, and gained such es- pecial favour in female society, that he married a voting ladv of respectable corvneclions there; and having obtained possession of a part of her pro- perty, he in a few days afterwards set off for Lon- don on VERY URGENT business. Befoie the lime fixed for his return had expired, the ft rends of Uie lady were surprised by finding the death of Mr. Williamson announced in one of the Cornwall pa- pers. At first they concluded that the printer had been imposed upon; but, 011 a further investiga- tion, they discovered that the letter sent to ihe printer was in the hand- writing of Williamson himself. His clerical habit, we presume, being " thread bare," he has latterly appeared genteely dressed tn coloured clothes; and has really a most prepossessing appearance, and very engaging man- ners. Of late he has been dashing about Bristol, Bath, and even into the neighbourhood of Glou- cester, in a smart barouche and four, with three servants in livery, and 011 Saturday se'nnight he had the temerity to drive up to the King's Head in the latter city with his carriage, horses, and servants profusely decorated with orange ribbons, and reported, from Bristol, tiie news of atl im- portant victory obtained by Lord Wellington over Soult, which turned out to be entirely devoid of truth. His carriage and horses have been claimed, and restored to a person of Bristol, of whom they were hired. The prisoner was taken into custody on Monday at Worcester, ( through the spirited perseverance of Messrs. Tovey and James, solici- tors, of Newnham,) after having been pietty close- ly followed up for the last two months; in which period + hese gentlemen have prevented his marry- ing two unsuspecting females, one of whom, resi- dent at Bristol, has been involved in the most poignant distress, the consequence of the delusion practised upon her — He asserts, that his real riarre i « Richard Williamson, and that he is a native of Ashley, in Wiltshire. He has an ulcer, apparently f long standing on the right leg. About i50i. in Bank of England notes, was found upon his person. He says he is possessed of funded property, to the amount of many thousands, and numbers of cer- tificates of stock were actually found among his papers. The appearance of individuals at the theatres with bunches of orange ribbons at their breasts, reminds us of the following anecdote : The Prin- cess Mary married the Stadtholder of Holland about the year 1748, on which occasion orange rib- bons were worn by all the ladies of the Whig party, and also by some of the Tories, merely to conform to the fashion. Amongst the latter was Lady Massey, who, sitting one evening opposite to Lord Chesterfield at the Opera, his Lordship, ou a caid, wrote the following lines and sent them to her: 41 Little Tory ! where's the jest To wear the ORANGE on your breast? When that same breast too plainly shews The WHITENESS of the rebel rose ! DIED. On Tuesday, at Witham Lodge, Essex, in his 86th year, the Hon.

Our market was but scantily supplied with Wheat this morning, and we had many buyers at an early hour, and fine dry runs were briskly disposed of from 8s. to 10s per quarter above last Monday's prices.-— Barley was plentiful, and selling above Is. per quarter lower.— Malt is dull in sale, and also lower.— Pease are much as last noted.— But Beans both old and new, being iu very short supply and and- inquired alter, reach higher prices.— We had a brisk sale for Oats on Wednesday and Friday last, and but few arrivals for this day's market; hence fine samples meet a very ready sale at an advance of fulj 2s. per quarter above last Monday's prices.
