ADMIRALTY- OFFICE, DEC. 1. Lord Keith has transmitted a letter from Lieutenant Gordon, commanding the Dwarf culter, giving an account of liis having, on the 4th ult. captured, off Hie Cordovan, the American letter of marque sclioouer Charlotte, carrying two gnns and eight men, hound from Bourdeaux to Charleston. Letter from Captain Farquahar, of the Desiree, to J. W. Croker, Esq. dated off Cuxhaven, tlie 2d inst. SIR— I have Ihe honour toacquaint you, that tbe French batteries of Phare and Napoleon have yesterday entered . into capitulation, and this morning surrendered to a detach- ment of his Imperial Majesty'sRussian troops, commanded I by Col. A. Radinger, and his Britannic Majesty's squadron ; ( us per margin*) under iny command. 1 On the 28th ult. 1 arrived here ( from Bremerlehe), where j I found Captain Green, of the Shamrock, had collected tbe squadron, 10 co- operate with the Russian troops. On the I same evening, I ordered Ihe gun- boats to take a position above Napoleon, and to cannonade lhat battery, in concert with the Russian troops, and advanced the squadron ready to attack Phare ( or Cuxhaven). On thc291h, a brisk and well- directed fire was kept tip on Fort Napoleon by the gun- bouts, and from field pieces from the Russian line, with considerable effect; and their tiral- Icurs annoyed the enemy in both batteries by a constant fire of musketry, which was returned with vigour, and from llie battery of Phare red- hot shot were tired, which burnt several houses in the town. During this time, we were employed in lauding guns frum tbe squadron, anil erecting a battery within 4no yards of tbe works of Phare. On the morning of the 30lh it was completed, and presented to the enemy a fnrmidable appearance, consisting of to guns, viz six 18- pounders, two .' Impounders, and two ( impounders. The morning was quite thick and obscured our works, bul as soon as il cleared, and we were ready to commence our attack, the enemy threw out a truce, which bas ended in Ihe surrender of these two extremely strong batteries, con- sisting of 26 heavy guns, two 13- inch mortars, aud a block- house with a garrison of 300 men and officers, who have been made prisoners of war. The expedition - with which Captains Green and Banks, ( who had the direction of forming and completing tbe sea - men's battery,) performed tbat service, I trust will speak for itself. Lieut. Kaultain, whom I had occasion lo mention on a recent occasion, as a volunteer, continued his services, and, with al) the officersand men of the squadron employed on this occasion, merit my best thanks, as well as the gun- boats ( under the direction of Lieut. Haumer), who particu- larly distinguished themselves, by their well- directed tire, and by the injury Ihey did to the enemy's works. I have very great pleasure in stating to you, Sir, thut in the last 10 days the small detachment of Russian troops, commanded by Col. Radinger, assisted by his Majesty's squadron under my command, have been fortunate in reducing four strong batteries, consisting of 50 heavy guns, 4 mortars, and 800 men and Officers, all prisoners of war; and I cannot help expressing the satisfaction which I feel in acquainting you, lhat the whnle of this service bas been carried 011 with the greatest cordiality between tbe co- ope- rating forces, both officers and men ; not the smallest mis understanding on any occasion. I am extremely happy to state, that tbe loss on this occasion has been very trifling ; 011 the part of the Russians two killed and three wounded : we have sustained 110 loss, 1 have thought it right to forward this dispatch, w ithout delay, by Sir G. Keith, 111 the Redbreast, who takes to England the officers of Fort Phare, who are prisoners of war. Two days ago, I liad the pleasure to learn, that Standi had been taken possession of by a Russian detachment, under the orders of Count Strogonoffe. I have the honour to be, & e. ( Signed) ARTHUR FARQUHAR. N. B. These batteries were complete with provisions of all kinds for six weeks, and a very considerable quantity of military stores and ammunition of every description. * Desiree, Shamrock, Blazer, Piercer, Redbreast; Gun- boats, Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 8. Three mails arrived this morning from Heligoland, with intelligence from that island to the 6th. From these we learn thai Hamburgh has been completely invested by lite Allies: and the bombardment of'that unfortunate town is expected to take place immediately. Previously to the close investment, Davoust had ob- tained a considerable advantage over a large body of cavalry ; but reinforcements of the Allies coining up, the enemy were obliged to retreat with much loss. The great consternation prevailed at Altona, in conse- quence ofthe approach of the Allies, who, it was feared there, might treat the city with severily, in consequence of the extravagant and unaccountable policy of the Dan- ish King, who seems fully resolved not to sever his own fortunes from those of Bonaparte. We commis- erate the Danes— we pity every brave and unoffending people, who are made to suffer for the Colly or madness of their Government; and there is much reason to sup- pose lhat Iheir Ruler has not only inherited the tille, but also the infirmities, of liis father. Tbe accounts we continue to receive from Holland become every day more exhilirating. The good cause is acquiring a rapid augmentation of strength and con- fidence. One sentiment seems lo pervade the country — a determined resolution not to submit again tothe yoke they have cast off. Dutch Papers lo the 5th have been received. The Prince of Orange arrived on the 8d at Amsterdam, where he was received with the most marked demonstration of respect and joy. The people, particularly the lower classes, rushed in crowds lo behold the descendant of their first deliverers, and rent the air with cnthusiaslic cries of " Orarijc Boven.'" The exultation of the inhabitants appears to have been ex- treme j and they seem even inclined to lay at his Serene Highuess's feet those pertinacious and jealous feelings of freedom, which formerly characterised the Dutch— which often produced great heart- burnings; bul which were the source however of their improvement in so many instances. The Prince was universally greeted with the enthusiastic acclamation of" Long live Wil- liam I, Sovereign Prince ofthe JVetherlands .'" The Provisional Government of Amsterdam, hurried along by the torrent of public sentiment, and by that of cir- cumstances, published on the Ist, an Address to their fellow- citizens, in which, after alluding to the happy turn of affairs, they call the Prince of Orange their Sovereign. Many persons have fallen into a gross mistake respecting the term " Netherlanders," used in that Address, who conceive that it includes the Bra- banters as well as the Dutch. The Dutch have almost uniformly in their public documents applied the term : Netherlanders to themselves, in contradistinction to | that of their neghbonrs the Flemings, who inhabit a 1 holier country. Could however such an event be j effected, it would have a happy influence in keeping within reasonable bounds the power and pretensions of France. The military accounts are also highly gratifying. General Bulow took Arnheim by storm 011 the 30th ult. The garrison were put to the sword; and it is supposed this severity was intended as a retaliatory act upon the enemy, for the cold- blooded atrocities they had exercised at Woerden—( See lust page). On the 30lli ult. the Fieneli troops evacuated Schoonoven, and passed the Lek. On the 2d instant the Brill was liber- ated ; and the Dutch troops made themselves masters of the fort of Oltgensplaat. A battery at Builcnsluis was taken by a party of volunteers, headed, it should seem, by an Englishman, a Mr. J. Adams. Admiral Vendoren, appointed to the chief command in the Zuiderzee, had made an official report of the spirit which animated all the people of the Dock- yards, and which had communicated itself so widely to the crews of the Texel fleet, that Verhueil, afraid to trust the greater part of them aboard, had turned them ashore, and shut himself up in the fort of La Salle; that 13,000 of the Allies had passed through Utrecht, in their way : to relieve such places as were still iu the possession of j the enemy— the chief of which were Breda, Bergen- [ op- Zoom, and Gorcum. Helvoetsluys was also, accord- - ing to lale advices, in French occupation ; bul news of i its fail was momentarily expected, as a combined na- { val and military force had proceeded at once against it. The following are said to be the respective quotas which each State is to furnish from the side of Germany and Holland agaiust France:— Austria and Russia are to employ 150,000 men each ; Prussia 100,000; Bava- ria, 30,000 ;'| Wurtemburg, 15,000; Baden, 10,000; Hesse, 20,000 ; British and Russo- German legions, ill the pay of England, 25,000 ; Swedes 30,000; kingdom of Saxony, 30,000; besides smaller contingents, such as Hesse Darmstadt, Mecklenburgli, Brunswick, Saxe Gotha, & c. & c. The French naval force at Antwerp consists of three ships> of 80 guns; four in ordinary ; six 74' » ; two 74' s, with one hundred men each, but no guns ; two frigates in ordinary ; ten or twelve gun brigs fitted and manned ; or. e 80 gun ship, and three frigates ( no guns) with about 20 men each. Several gun- brigs, & c. in the loads, and four frigates of 44 guns, ready for sea. Admiral Verhueil slill refuses to hoist the Orange flag. — Hit. fleet amounts altogether lo 16 sail, eighl or nine of whici are ofthe line. A dispatch was sent to him on Wednesday, apprizing him that he would be honour- ably Ireate I if he joined the Patriots ; but if not, he should be considered in the light ofa Frenchman, and a traitor to his country. His answer was, briefly, " 1 am the servant of llie Emperor of the French." The last account* frouiCarlscrona mate that there were about 400 ships lying there; aud that it was expected lhat a Swedish frigate, which was bound to the Medi* terranean, would convoy them through the Sound. The following Proclamation was published 011 the day the Prince of Of- ange entered Amsterdam : WILLIAM FREDERICK, Piince of Orange and Nassau, to all whom it may concern, greeting— My feelings, upon m. v entrance this day into this capital, are inexpressible. Restored to that people whom I never ceased to bear in remeiubrancn, I behold rnvself, after 19 years absence, as a Fattier in ihe midst of his Family. Never, Netherlander, shall my reception in Holland— s never shall my entrance inlo Amsterdam, be effaced from my memory ; and, by your love I promise yon, you shall not find yourselves deceived. It is your Wish* Netherlander, that i should stand in a higher relation towards you, than I should have stood in bad I never been absent. Y'. ur confi- dence, your love, places the Sovereignty in'my bands, and I am urged on all sides to assume it, inasmuch as the necessity of the country, and the situation of Europe, requite that 1 should do so. Be it so. I shrill sacrifice my own'opinions to vcur wishes ; I undertake what Ihe Netherlands offer me ; but t undertake it alone under the guarantee of a wise Constitution, which shall secure yotir freedom against all |, ossib! e future abuses ; — I undertake it., under the full impression of tlie duties which this acceptance imposes Upon me.— My ancestors gave birth to your independence. The maintenance thereof shall be the incessant task of me and my posterity. 1 rely In the present circumstances, slill somewhat critical, upon your co- operation and sacrifices; and after a short pe- riod of exertion, under God's assistance, no foreigner shall any longer lie able, upon your own territory, to resist the aidour of the renovated nation and the triumphant arms Of our allies. Done at the Council- house of Amsterdam, this 2d day of December, 1813. W. F. Pi ince of ORANGE. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 9. Two Heligoland mails have arrived, which have brought a great variety of intelligence, in dispatcher from Frankfort and from Admiral Freemantle. Tho following Bullelin contains an abstract of the official information received by these conveyances :— Advices are received from Frankfort, dated Ihe 28th nit. which slate that Marshal Gouvion St. Cyr had refused to return to Dresden, audio have his corps replaced in ihe situation in which it capitulated to Count Kleinau, upon which Prince Schwaitzenberg gave orders that tlie corps should be made prisoners of war, and marched iutoBohemia. It consists of above 30 Generals, 1900 Officers, 26,000 men, besides Gooo sick. The garrison of Medellin had surrendered prisoners of war. Bonaparte bad offered to treat for tbe surrender of all the garrisons 011 the Elbe, Oder, and Vistula, bul his proposals liad been refused The Crown Piince was lo pass the Elbe 011 the 29th, Willi above 40,000 men ; Ihe rest of his army had marched under General Winziugcrode tu Holland. There can be no doubt, lhat the surrender of the 28,000 efficient firelocks at DresJen, dismisses 40,000 of the Allies from the duty of watching them, and renders that force disposeable for other services. The Vienna Gazette contains a formal notification that the Confederation of the Rhine has ceased to exisf, all the States belonging to it having either voluntarily joined the Allies, or been occupied by their ariny. Most of the Kings and Princes have attended in person at Frankfort, to offer their alliance to the Emperors of Austria and Russia, and the King of Prussia, ln that city have been seen the Kings of Bavaria and Wurtem- berg; the Grand Dukes of Blden, Hesse- Darmstadt, and almost all the minor Princes, even including the Prince of Issemburg, late an Officer in the service of Franc,, and of whose fidelity lo Bonaparte the French papers so loudly boasled. The Grand Duke of Baden, in an address to his subjec s, declares, I at he had requested of Bonaparte permission to remain neutral, which he refused. Letters from Flensburgh, under date of the 26th of November, state that Count Bernslorff had set off to Frankfort; and the Austrian Ambassador, who was on the point of leaving Copenhagen, has beenjrequested to postpone his departure. Meanwhile, the Crown Prince, disregarding all these pacific overtures, resolutely pursues his duty as a Sovereign and a soldier. The French quitted Dusseldorff on the 10th ult. anil since that time the Allies have occupied the whole of Ihc Grand, Duchy of Berg, belonging to joung Napoleeil Louis, son of the late King of Hoi. anil. From the assemblage of military men at Frankfort about Ihe lath ult. it would seem that some grand operations are on the eve of being undertaken. Besides Prince Schwarlzenberg and General Barclay de Tolly, we observe, that Marshal Blucher and General Czerni* cheff had arrived there ; and we are glad to be able to add, that General Wreile was sufficiently recovered of his wounds to be brought lo tlie same spot. The news from the side of Italy is most satisfactory. Admiral Freemantle describes the people of istria nil Dalmatia iu general, as holding the French iu perfect abhorrence The castle of Trieste surrendered ou the 2d tilt. ; and 011 Ihe 10th General Nugent embarked at that port on a secret expedition. By Heligoland Mails, Frankfort Papers to the 2Ist have been received, which state that a party of Cos- sacks had passed the Rhine at Mullieiin, and returned with four of Ihe inhabitants of Cologne. II isev ecled that the Allied Army will soon pass 111 force. Prepa* rations were also making by the army uuder General Hillier lo pass the Adige. At Milan, the Public Func- tionaries are preparing to depart aud tlie Auslrians are expected. Venice is invested by sea and land. Accounts from the French coast state, that the enemy are making every exertion to send troops against Holland. " Every person," says one of those accounts, " cajiable of bearing arms, is compe ted to inarch, and where any opposition is attempted, lone aud violence of the most compulsive nature are resorted to. A great number of gun- boats are also conveying from Dunkirk^ & c. through the Netherlands, by the canals, to the Scheldt, intended, it is said, for the defence of that . river and Antwerp." 1 General Benkendorli, who commanded tbe Russian advance thut first entered Amsterdam, arrived on Tues- day at Harwich, and immediately proceeded lo London, charged, as it is said, with important dispatches lor Ins Majesty's Government.

Dispatches have been received iroin Lord Claticarly, our Ambassador at the Hague; the substance of which was published yesterday m the following Bulletin — " Foreign Office, Dec. jfo 1813 — By dispatches received last uuh'i from Lord Clancarly, it appears thai the enemy evacuated Helvoetsluvs on the night uf the 5ih, when il was immediately occupied hv the Dutch troops. The capture ofGoree bad also been immediately followed by the abandonment of the fort of Duquesmc, and the whole island of Ovetflacke, in which were found 100 pieces of cannon and a large quantity of stores:— The whole of the North of Holland, except the Heldev, was free from the French." Every arrival from Holland auuttunce* some new ad- vat, tage. The highest unanimity and enthusiasm continue to mark the public exertions; and Ihc people and their Prince labour cordially in one great design— that of conso- lidating the national independence, ' the enemy has been expelled from most of the inland strong holds, and he possesses very little fooling towards the sea, or the Eastern limit Whilst he is thus rapidly losing possession, be bas nol sent, as yel, a siugie reinfoii cmeut of any magnitude, es far as ie have been able to ascertain, for the purpose of rei ovciing his authority. This is the most signal proof, we have been able to collect as yel, of thv wonderful decline of his military powei ; whilst it invalidates all the assertions in the Paris Papers, ofthe march of troops to Ihe different points menaced by the Allies. If he had a disposable force, to the large amount therein slated, he would have ordered a considerable pait of it to march upon Holland. The change iu Ihat country threatens to do him Vital injury; for exclusive . of the augmentation of strength and opinion it gives to iis adversaries, and, the proportioned diminution of Doth it causes to himself, it gives also an admiiable military position to the Allies, which will enable them at j once IO bring a large force to bear upon another annexed province of bis empire, where his authority is likewise vacillating, and where an impatience under his yoke has strongly manifested itself. Should Ihe Flemings imitate the example ofthe Dutch, and acid their obstinate energies to the cause— Iheir numerous resources of character, posi- tion and soil— il would almost require bis undivided atten- tion and mcuus lo meet danger at that one point; whilst tbe remainder of his extensive frontier would be exposed, nearly destitute of defence, to the attacks of t he combined armies of the rest of the Continent. Should Brabant revert to its ancient Sovereign, particularly hy the act of its own fro will, from that moment the existence of France, as an independent Slate, would depend upun the moderation of her opponents. The detachments ofGuards, under Major General Cooke, lauded ou Monday lasl, at Seheveling. These brave hoops weie received by' the natives with the most enthusiastic Welcome; and nothing can exceed the good will and grati- tude. which the Dutch eviliee towards individuals of the British nation. Wherever ' an Englishman, appears, he is received with the most cordial marks of attachment. This demonstration of friendly and grateful feelings towards this country will not surprise any one acquainted with the former pursuits and habits of tlie Dutch, in ihe revival of their intercourse with England, they behold tbe restoration of their trade, freedom and opulence ; and, whoever abhors tbe French, or has cause of complaint against that nation, w ill, of course, be well affected towards the English. We are told the same manifestation of sentiment is conspicuous in every other pari of Ihe Continent liberated fiom the Gen. Gouvion Si. Cyr, who lately commanded ill Dres- den, is brother lo Gen. Gouviun, Ihe friend of La Fayette, and llie first French Gene al killed iu the wars of the Revo- lution. ' I'he present Marshal was 15 or 2u years younger than his brother, aud was attached to La Fayette's Stall. He shared partly the fortunes of tbat General, aud was im- prisoned in some caslle in Flanders; from whence he was, however, shoitlv after liberated. II is said to tie intended, in consequence of the now favourable state of Europe, to diminish the number of ships of the line. About 30 or 40 three- deckers, it is ex- pected, wiil lit put out of commission, and their crews distributed among an increased number of frigates of the largest size. . Oracje Men ! literally means " Orange uppermost! The Zealand flag consisted of thnc stripes, white, blue, and orange. When the House of Orange possessed the reins of Government over f heUuited States, the orange stripe vvas placed uppermost on the flag. When De Witt was al tlie helm, the oranse stripe was placed below the others— hence Orange Boven ! became the rallying cry of those who were attached to the House of Orange. Among the gamlilng policies ever open in the city the life of Bonaparte has been a favourite object for speculative insurances. In the beginning of Ibis monlli, policies lo a very large amount have beeu negociaied, and twelve guineas give to receive one hundred if Ihe tyrant be alive on the first of January. Yesterday a meeting of the Merchants and other persons connected with ihe Dutch interest look place at the City of London Tavern, Bishopsgate- strcet, for the purpose of were approached on different peinls, and the posts the i enemy occupied iu advance were taken except the Schanza. A company of Croats g'ot possession of a wood, 300 yards j from the ramparts, from whence, during the rest of thr siege, they very much annoyed the enemy at Ins gunf. On Ihe 23il the Schanza w as taken, greatly owing to the courage aud exertions of Captain Ron ley. Three batteries, for 18 and 32 pounders, were immediately begun, and Captain Berenstil opened a trench, whicb formed a first parallel, at the distance of 400 yards. A mortar battery was built near the Schanza, and one for howitzers, in the prolongation of llie attack in front. Captain Rains occupied, vvith two mortars, a battery iu th" rear, which threw wilh great effect. As soon as these batteries were ready, the enemy Cl. oituluted. The labour of ail these works was incredible, owing to the soft ground, occasioned by Ihe continual rains, and the fire of the enemy ; and nothing but tbe extraordinary ex- ertions of tire men, & the perfect harmony which prevailed, could have overcome the difficulties. The officers, seamen, aud marines, ofthe British squadron, particularly exerled themselves, and were animated by tiie presence of the Admiral, vt ho himself superintended Ihe works and directed Ihe batteries. Of the British land troops, Ihe Calabrese had the most opportunities to distinguish themselves. Captain Roncti, a brave officer, was wounded; after which ihe comirand devolved upou Lieutenant Butler, who she , ed bravery and activity. Colonel Robertson was destined for the right of the attack, ifit had beeu continued. Lieutenant Rains, of the Royal Artillery, directed the tire of Ihe mortars with promoting a subscription for defraying the expenses ofcon- j great effect and intelligence. Captain Angelo, of theatst veying to Ihe Dutch coast those unfortunate inhabitants of j regiment, who was with me during the operations that pi c- tlie United Provinces who had fled to this country to avoid | ceded the siege, has rendered very essential service, ihe tyranny of French conscription, and who are deprived !

It was determined, however, tbat no • money should he received till after the dinner on Tuesday next, to celebrate tbe glorious event ofthe Emancipation of Holland, j The navigation of the Weser being no- w considered free from annoyance, a regular intercourse with Bremen is about to he established Notice to this effect has been given at the General Post- office. We hope soon to hear of a similar establishment between this country and Ham- burgh, and ihe other Hanseatic Towns, which have been so long under Ibe galling yoke of France. Mrs. Clarke, we are told, has pleaded guilty to an indict- ment for a libel upon the Right Hon. W, Fitzgerald, Chan- cellor of tbe Exchequer for Ireland, and will be brought up for judgment next term The Catholic Board have renewed their application to Mr. Grattan and the Earl of Dononghmore, earnestly so- liciting a consultation with these personages, upon Ihe points of discussion connected with the Bill lo be laid be- fore Parliament fur the relief of the Catholics of Ireland. At the same time thatthe Board urge Ihis solicitation, they disavow anv thing 1 ke dictation upon tbe subject at issue. Murder ( It fauxhall — During the night of Tuesday last, a murder was committed in Ihe house of the Misses Gom- pertz, under the following circumstances :— lt appears thai . three- Ladies of that name reside nearly opposite to the principal entrance of Vauxliall- gardens ; that llieir house- hold consisted of three female servants, and a footman; and a Gentleman, their cousin, also resided in the house Tlif man servant's usual practice was, every night to fire off oppression of the enemy ; the name of England stands, in [ a musket al 11 o'clock, and lo le load il. He slept iu the those countries, io higher estimation than at any former period. We are also informed, that the detestation iu which the enemy is held is almost incredible But all Ibis is natural. Wherever the French obtained a footing and conlroul, iliey ruined the people by exactions, or wounded them by insults: with whatever nation Great Britain has intercourse, it is only productive of benefits. The French Paper's up to the 6th are entirely destitute of ie. it rest, They do not mention a single military occur, l ence founded upon fact. The articles are solely intended to conceal, or disguise, and not expose, the true stale of events; and are palpably written with Ihe sole view to favour Ihe new conscription; conceal llie calamities sus- tained by the French arms; keep out of sigln tbe military blunders and disgraces of Bonaparte— and Ihus try lo pre- vent Ihat explosion of discontent, which an exact know- ledge of occurrences would be calculated lo cause. It was reported yesterday that accounts had been re ceived, through Holland, of Ihe commencement of tbe bombardment of Hamburgh, in so vigorous a maimer, tbat the speedy surrender of the place was expected. The town had been 011 fire in several parts — Another report was that on the 5th instant, Verhuel, having left the Dutch fleet iu the Texel, anil shut hiniselfup in Ihe fort of La Sale, the ships were surrendered to the Patriots. Weshall be happy to find this account confirmed. The postponement • f the Meeting of the French Legis- lative Body from Ihe 2d to tbe 15th, and afterwards to the lglll, and now to ( he 24' b, has excited considerable cu- riosity. The cause is probably this— Bonaparte may have made pacifir overtures to the Allies, whieh he may term moderate-, and which, perhaps, be has neither hopes, nor inclination, of being accepted. ' 1 he refusal of the Allies, he flatters himself, M ill sive him a good pretext for inveigh- ing ou their extravagant pretensions, as well as for calling on the French to support liiin in so just a conflict. His servile Legislators will re- echo liis charges, and sanction such measures, as Ihe wily despot may propose. However, let none imagine that Bonaparte means, with sincerity of heart, to negotiate. He cannot conclude a peace wilh his adversaries— it is foreign to his system and his disposition, and would menace him personally with dangerr. almost as alarming as the most unfavourable stale of warfare. A letter from Frankfort on the Maine states the following to be Ibe plan of operations :— A corps of 130,000 men, under tlie Crown Prince, are to penetrate into Holland in a line from Cologne 10 the sea. Almost every Dutchman in the French service lias deserted tln ra, and they have also reported that tbe utmost hatred to the French exists a: iion< si their countrymen.— Blucher next, with 115,000 is to cross the Rhincat Cobleutz, and opening a communi- cation with the Crown Prince, is to march southerly— The grand army under SrliMnilzctiburgh, amounting to upwards 1 of 205,000 men, is to enter Fiance through Switzerland, and advance iu a northwesterly direction; indeed the { greater part of this army has already filed off in Ihat directum.— An army of 70,000 men, under Bellegarde, ia to carry on the war in Italy, bul that will not last ioug, fur I wo reasons : first of all, the Italians are extremely anxious i'or 11 change, in order lo get rid of conscription, which is particularly irksome lo them. Murat himself is known to be very ill disposed to Bonaparte, and there are neither troops nor money in the country lo carry 011 tbe war The Viceroy of 1 laly bas only 3", 000 men wilh him, w ho are to much exposed on their left flank by the junction of Bavaria with the allies, that they cannot long be troublesome.— Another army of 40,000 men are to endeavour to penetrate iuln France through Piedmont, under the idea, I am told, of joining Lord Wellington ; besides these, the allies have 12 5,000 Itien employed in the sieges of Ihe different fortres- ses, great part of whom are employed at iJautzig and other places, and will spe- dily be released from that duty. In addition, if we count Lord Wellington's army, which is here calculated at 120,001) men, it will appear tbat no less a number than 825.000 men are, at this moment, carrying arms against the Freuch. Ail estimate of the French garrisons inGermnrty makes the amount tube 102,500: of these, however, some have since fallen into the hands of the Allies, particularly the large force which was in Dresden. Stettin, we are assured too, bas certainly capitulated, and so has tbe Polish fortress of Modlin — Deductingfrom this number 411,000 for the gar- | September, and many movements which had been pr risons of Dresden, Stettin, & Moillin, there willslill remain certed with Admiral Freemantle, the enemy's object en- n force of 62,500 men, independently of Davousi's army: and 1 lirelv failed, and we got possession of Ihe whole of Islria, it has been thought most advisable not to leave so large a 1 guarding ihe ridge of mountains wbich run from Trieste lo force unsubdued behind the Allies; but first to clear all I Fiume. On Ihe2isi 1 met Admiral Freemanlle, wilh part Germany— to fosler and animate the spirit wbich is so i of tlie British squadron, at Capo d'lstria, which post we universally alive in that country— to leiruitand equip the I strongly fortified. Our position stretching still more in tbe armies— and obtain the efficient and entire command of the | enemy's flank than before, forced him lo keep a large force countries in the rear— before the great operations across j against me; General Radavojavitch made very able use of the Rhine are undertaken.

On tiie 23d a general movement look very brisk, and that the and 011 the Continent for Co- j place ; I marched to Bassavizza, near Trieste, and covering kitchen, where Ihis musket was always kept. At about four o'clock 011 Tuesday morning, one of the Misses G0111- pertz heard the report of a gun, and instantly rang the bell, which communicated to the kitchen, hut received no an Swer. On this she awoke lier cousin and sisters, and the female servants, and they went down stairs, and found the kitchen door la- l -. Ihey knocked, but receiving no answer, they atleuglh broke it open and found tbe man servant lying dead by the window— On further inspection, it ap- peared that the house had been attempted by robbers, who had by great force, with an iron crow, pulled down the window shutters, and afteiwards taken out a pane of glass, which lay on the ground unbroken, ltis supposed they were at this time heard by Ihe footman, who, iu opposing their entrance, was fired upon, and killed 011 the spot; the musket was taken away by the robbers, but found the next morning in a field adjoining Ihe home. It was in a foul slate, as if recently fired; but we understand one ofthe female seivants says, that the deceased was not able to load it the preceding night, for want of powder, which he did not discover until he had discharged it as usual. The man st rvant's livery coat was also found outside the bouse next morning. At a lale hour last night 110 person was in cus- tody 011 suspicion. Imperial parliament. HOUSE OF COMMONS— WEDNESDAY, DEC. 8. On the motion for the third reading of Ihe Frame- work- knitters Bill, SirS. ROMILLY said, he had 110 intention lo oppose any farther tbe passing of this bill; but he wished lo know whether this, being a permanent statute, was to be introduced into the Statute- book along with ihe 28th of tbe king, which imposed the milder punishment uf 14 years transportation for breaking sleeking frames, a species of offence which appeared to him to be exactly tbe same with that described in the present bill ?— The ATTORNEY GENERAL said, that the present bill enacting a severer punishment for the like offence, would operate as a virtual repeal of the former act.— The bill vvas then read a third time, and passed ; as were also Ihe Brandy Duty, the Local Mililia, and the Temporary Insolvent Debtors bilis. Read a first time the bill authorising the temporary re- moval of convicts, under sentence of transportation, to places of confinement iu Scotland and elsewhere. ! THURSDAY, DECEMBER 9.

FROM THE LONDON GAZETTE. DOWNING STREET, DEC. II, 1813. A Dispatch, ol which the following is a copy, was Ibis day received by Earl Bathurst from General Count Nugetil, commanding an army of his Imperial Majesty in Italy. MY LORD, Trieste, November 1, 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 infoim your lord- hip of their further operations. By my former letter, your lordship has been informed of my proceedings, as far as I he taking of Fiume, and the first operations in that neighbourhood. Eugene Beauharnois fall of the castle of Trieste closes one most important part of our operations, and gives us the possession of the coast fiom Dalmatia to the top of the Adriatic, with all the roads that lead from thence. The whole of these operations prove how, by the mutual assistance of the army aud uavy, a very superior force will be al length overcome. I always found Admiral Freemattlle iu readiness to support me ; and by the confidence which that gave me, I was enabled to undertake operations, which otherwise would have been destructive, lt was this that allowed me to act in the rear of the enemy, and give up frequently my land communication, convinced that it would soon be opened again. As to tbe siege of the cast'e of Trieste, your lordship will perceive, by the above, that the greatest pai t of Ihe credit must be given lo Admiral Freemantle and navy, and it is niv duly to acknowledge it. Tbe result of this part of tbe campaign is, tbat besides the killed and wounded in the different actions, the enemy has sustained a loss in prisoners, w hich is greater thau the number of troops I command. I have the honour to be, & c. ( Signed) NUGENT, Major- General. The Gazette also contains a letter frotn Adinira' Freemantle, giving farther particulars of the above important intelligence, aud stating the British loss of seamen and marines, which was only 10 killed and 35 wounded. The Gazette likewise contains a notification that the blockade of all the ports of Holland, and of the coast between Trieste and Dalniatia, is raised, except such ports as may still be in the possession or under Ihe cou- troul of France. The Gazette also contains a proclamation, appointing Thursday, the 13th of JANUARY next, to be held in England and Ireland as a DAY FOR A GENERAL THANKSGIVING, " to devoutly and thankfully ac- knowledge the great goodness and mercy of Almighty God, who, in addition to the manifold aud inestimable benefits wbich this kingdom has received at his hands, has continued to us his protection and assistance in the war in which, for the common safety of his Majesty's dominions, and for disappointing the boundless ambition of France, we are now engaged, and has given to the arms of his Majesty, and lo those of his Allies, a series of signal and glorious victories over the forces of the enemy." SATURDAY, ^ ECEMBER 11 The Hereditary Prince of Orange arrived to- day from Lord Wellington's head- quarters ; he returned from Spain in consequence of information sent to him by the British Government, relative lo the Revolution which bad taken place in Holland, in favour of his family ; wilh a view of enabling him to repnir immediately lo that country, to take an ostensible command in Ihe Dutch army, so soon postscript. LONDON, Monday Wight, December 13, 1813, The Prince Regent gave a grand dinner yesterday to the Hereditary Prince of Orange, ai which ihe Princess Charlotte of Wales was present. Letters from Lord Wellington's bead- quarters corroborate the statement given on Saturday, that a retrograde move- ment appeared in the present state of things to be unavoid- able. It was 110 doubt the great object of Lord Wellington ou entering into France, to conciliate as much as possible the people of that Country. The following are Copies of his Lordship's Proclamation to the inhabitants of France, and of his orders lo the Army on the occasion :— PROCLAMATION. " Upon entering your Country, I have given the strictest orders to prevent those evils which are the usual conse- quences of invasion, and which you are fully aware is ihe « esult of that which the French Government made into Spain, and ofthe successes of ihe Armies uuder my com- mand.—- Be assured that I shall not fail to carry into effect these Oiders ; and I entreat of you to arrest, and convey to my head- quarters, all those who, in opposit^ m lo tlie rules laid down, attempt to do you any injury— But it is neces- sary thai you should abide in your own houses, and take no part in tlie War of which your country is about to become the theatre. ( Signed) W E LLI NGTON ORDERS, to which the foregoing Proclamation alludes :— " Notwithstanding the Country before ihe Army is an hostile one, the General iu Chief is peculiarly anxious that the inhabitants should be well treated, and ihat their pro- perty should be respected. The officers and soldiers must bear in mind that their nations are at war with France, ouly because he who governs her will not allow them to be at peace, and is desirous to compel ihem to submit to his yoke. They are to remember, that the evils which the enemy has inflicted in his scandalous invasion of Spain and Portugal, have originated from the cruelties which soldiers, prompted to it by their Chiefs, committed upon the peaceable inha- biaants of the country, lt would be unworthy of the nation, to which the General in Chief alludes, lo seek re- venge upon the unoffending inhabitants of France; and this vengeance would create lo ihe army similar evils ( if not greater) than the enemy has endured iu the Peninsula, and would act in opposition to the public good. " The same regulations must be observed in the cities and villages of France, as have hitherto been laid down in Ihe requisitions and receipts for provisions which may be drawn fiom the country; and the Commissaries of each TUe v. John Chambers, M. A. senior fellow of VTor' eestert: oljegp, Oxford, has been presented by the Provost and Fellows of that Society to ihe Keclory of'Nee n Sollers. in this county, vacant by the death of the Rev. Edward Baugh. At the late Worcester Fair, there was a tolerable good shew of fat and lean cattle, the prices of which were nearly the same as at the last fair ; of sheep there was but an indifferent show : some good horses, par- ticularly of the cart kind, were exhibited for sale', and fetched moderate prices.— There were upwards of 40 pockets of Hops, of this year's growth, which sold for £ 15. more or less. Of cheese, best making was asked £ 3. 3a. perewt. and the two- meal 56s. perewt. Among the company invited to meet her Majesty to dine at Carlton House on Thursday, with the Prince • Regent, were the Earl of Powis and the Viscount Clive. Lord Bradford is said to be in tl. e list of persons erf distinction intending to embark for Holland, on a friendly visit to our new Minister at Ihe Hague, Earl Clancarty. The King's Own Regiment of Stafford Militia, which has volunteered with its Noble Colonel for Continental Service, consists of 1300 men. On Thursday last, the late glorious events which have taken place on the Continent, were celebrated at Nantwich, by a ball given to the Ladies by Ihe Genlle- men of the town and neighbourhood, at tbe Crown Inn Assembly Room, and which was attended by upward* of 150 of Ihe most respectable persons, to whom tickets had heen sent. It seems, however, that one lady, who had not resided any great length of time in the place, had, for reasons best known to the managers, been passed over on the occasion, and no ticket was sent to her ; this gave great offence, and one was demand- ed for her by her husband ; who, upon being refused", said he would bring her without.— He was informed she should not be admitted ; notwithstanding which ho brought her, and tried every means to get into the room, but the Gentlemen were resolute; and after uttering a volley of abuse, the assailants went off.— Before they had retired, a uearly new satin gown woriv by one of the Ladies in the room, appeared to have et, j / v . ... c - been rent, but upon examination it was discovered to army of the different nations will receive from their respec- t L .

It seems to be the general opinion of the Officers cf the army that his Lordship may be com- pelled to make a retrograde movement, in order to procure for the troops more desirable winter quarters, lt is said thai flags of truce have been passing to and from the British and French head- quarters. Sir George Collier, who has been for some time on shore, serving with Ihe army, was the bearer ot the flags of truce from Lord Wellington; their object however, is not slated. Sir George, did not see Marshal Soult; but had a long conference with his Aide- de- Camp, who conversed freely on the present situation of Europe, particularly about the conscripts ; and intimated, that their being immediately called forth into actual service would effect a considerable change in the affairs of France, both in Germany and Spain. Yesterday a Dutch schuyt arrived at Harwich from Sehcveling, which she left on Wednesday evening. She brings a report that Verhuiel had written a letter lo the Prince of Orange, intimating, that provided bis Serene Highness would communicate with or write to him himself, the probable effect would he the immediate surrender of the Texel fleet. On Wednesday afternoon, his Majesty's ships Cumberland, Norge, Bedford, and another 74, sailed from oft* Sr beveling for Flushing. About 1200 of our troops on their landing proceeded towards the Helder: more are anxiously looked for. The French were still at Naarden, about three leagues and a half from Amsterdam, but not in any considerable force. French Papers to the 8th inst. reached town last night. They do not furnish any intelligence of much interest.— The Anniversary of the Coronation of Bonaparte was cele- brated on the 5th, of which the Journal de Paris takes ad- vantages ihey had derived from that event by Ihe substi- tution of law and order for revolutionary confusion.— A pro- found silence still continues to be observed with respect to the revolution in Holland. The only articles from that country are, one from the Texel of the 25th ult. in which j we are told that Admiral Verhuiel, vvith a respectable force, seconds the operations of the other French Generals, and \ and another from Gorcum of Ihe 28th, in which it is stated j that Gen Ferino had just arrived there with a strong de- tachment of French infantry. ( The accounts from Italy state that Beauharnois remained { at Verona on the £? lh ult. and that Mantua was in a good No mails have reached town to- day from Gottenbnrgh or Heligoland, which are so much looked for, in 1 he hope that the intelligence they may bring will relieve Ihe public anxiety as to the result of the battle expected to take place between the Crown Prince and Davonst about the lst inst. which must be nearly decisive of the fate of Hamburgh Neither were there any fresh arrivals from Holland, except a schuyt, which left the coast on Friday last. All that the Master of the vessel could state of the affairs of Holland was, that the fleet in the Texel still held out, or rather, Verhueil still persevered in his obstinate determi- nation not to give it up. Naarden and Bergen- op- zoom remained in the hands of the enemy, but the former was proceeded agaiust, and was shortly expected to fall. To- day tbe Lord Mayor, Aldermen, and Common Coun- cil of ihe City of London presented an address of congra- tulation tothe Prince Regent, at Carlton House, upon the recent revolution in Holland, and the other memorable events that have marked the politics of Europe within the last two months, Jo which the following giacions answer was delivered hy his Royal Highness : " I return you my warmest thanks for this loyal aud af- fectiouate address. The determination manifested through- out the United Provinces of the Netherlands to shake off the yoke of France, and to re- establish in their Government that illustrious family to w hom they originally owed their liberties, was well calculated to call forth among all classes of his Majesty's subjectsthat sympathy and exultation, in which you so largely participate, and which strongly evinces the characteristic ^ generosity of a free people,—- I look forward with the utmost satisfaction and confidence to the renewal of the same friendly intercourse aud conuec tion between that country and Great Britain, which ex- perience proves to he equally important to the true interest of both, and to the independence and security of Europe." " The sentiments which you have expressed 011 the de- liverance of Ihe ancient inheritance of my family, from the dominion of the enemy, could not fail to be peculiarly grate- ful to my feelings. u That unexampled career of victory, which through the favour of divine Providence has attended the arms of His Majesty under the command of Field Marshal the Marquis of Wellington, and those of his Majesty's brave Allies on the Continent, affords the fairest prospect of ultimate and complete success: and I am persuaded, that you are ani- mated by a firm conviction that it is only by the following up, with unabated vigour, the advantage already obtained, that the great object can be accomplished of restoring to this country and to Europe the blessing of an honourable and lasting peace."

Extract from ihe St. Petersburg)!* Gazette, of October K):—" The body of Gen. Mo re an, which was carried to - Russia by order of his Majesty the Emperor, arrived in this capital on the night of the aolh of September, it was received in the Catholic Church, and was laid in sa'& te dur- ing one day, on a magnificent bier , a monument destined to recal the aad image of the Hero whom France and Europe have for ever lost. The solemn service, ( o wiiich t he sound of mournful music added yet a more majestic and affecting character, was performed by his E mineuce the Metropolitan Archbishop of MoliilofF, and followed by a funeral oration, in which the Orator, after having sketched a slight portrait of the military exploits which have assured to General Moreau, a distinguished rank among Captains, and ilie recollection of which will be perpetuated in history, spoke . of the morahqnalities of the Hero, of his disinterest-, edness, his beneficence, his moderation, and his greatness of soul. His mortal remains were deposited in a vault pre- viously prepared iu the body of the church. All the prin- a^ pa'l nobility in the empire were present at the ceremony, and the troops, ranged in lipes, performed, by several dis- harges of musketry, the last honours due to the rank of • ^ parted General." had his principal force at Laybach, and my position annoy- I slate of defence. Some advantages are said lo have been ing his rear and communication, lie sent a force, six times j gained over the Austrians, but they are far too vague to be superior to mine, composed of l() battalions with 20 guns j entitled to any credit. A short time, we trust, will shew to attack me. After a well fought action, on the 14th of | tbat the battle of Leipsic was decisive of the fate of Italy recon- as well as of Germany. The Italians, when a protecting force can be spared for their deliverance, will shew no less enthusiasm than the Germans have done to shake off the yoke of their oppressors. Letters from Guernsey announce the receipt of intelli genee of considerable disaffection prevailing in Britanny, It is the province most likely to take the lead in the discon- tent almost necessarily inspired by the disasters resulting to France, from the frantic ambition of Bonaparte. Six vessels have arrived from Carlscrona, which were off' Malrnoe on the 3d instant. Although they were without convoy, and were under the necessity of anchoring a whole night iu Ihe Sound, they were neither molested by the Danish gun- boats, nor from the batteries of Elsinenr. A Swedish frigate was at Carlscrona, w aiting to convoy two vessels laden with presents from the Court of Stockholm to the Dey of Algiers. Fire— A dreadful fire broke out, about one o'clock this morning, on the premises of Messrs. Jones aud Co. timber merchants, King street, Southwark, which raged with the greatest fury, and, owing to the wind blowing strong frotn the north- east, and there bting a very scanty supply of water, it spread with the greatest rapidity, threatening destruction, for some time, to uearly the whole neighbour- hood The principal part of the ^ tock of Messrs Jones and Co. ( who were not insured) was consumed. A varnish manufactory also fell a prey to the flames, and 14 adjoining houses were totally destroyed, besides a number of others materially damaged, before the progress of the devouring element was allayed by the exertions of the firemen. The distress, occasioned by this accident is very great, as a num- ber of the inhabitants have lost nearly the whole of their property. We are happy to learn that 110 lives were lost, but one man w as dreadfully hurt. The Bench of Magistrates at Leicester have finally decided, by a recent conviction, thai the eldest son of a Clergyman, though a Justice of the Peace, is n<; t the ft Heir apparent of an Esquire, or a person of higher degree," and therefore not qualified undpr wy statute to kill, or hunt for game.

On Tuesday, suddenly, of a paralytic stroke, in his 80tli year, John Piggolt, Esq. of Presteign, Radnorshire; a man universally respected, aud whose loss will be deeply lament- ed by his numerous acquaintance aud friends.

Charles William- son, of Chester, wine- merchalit, aged 5li — Tbe character of t his highly respected, and universally lamented person, dis- played a combination of excellencies— We lately recorded the equally sudden removal ofthe deceased's dearest friend; and uovv, says the Chester Chronicle, u we pay but the tribute of honest veneration for all that is truly worthy of imitation, iu saying, that Thomas Jones, and Charles Williamson " were lovely in their lives, and in death they were not divided." 1 my left against that place, 1 moved towards Prevalde aud Ailelsberg. The enemy was now forced to a precipitate retreat, and Eugene Beauharnois, after losing in different actions about ten thousand men, mostly prisoners, arrived the Cd of October, wit Ii a'tont twenty thousand men, at Prevalde, taking up a line between that place and Optshina, in com- munication with Trieste. Al midnight, between the 31I and 4th of October, I attacked his right at Optshina, ami forced it lorelreat towards Garicc. On the 5th, the brigades of Stahremberg and Csirick forced tbe enemy's position at Santo Croce, at tbe same time Ihat 1 took the bridge of Merua, near Gorizia. Inthe night t he enemy passed the Isonzo, ami we took possession of Gorizia. Tbe lsonzo offering us now a strong position, 1 marched back upon Trieste w ilh part of of my troops Admiral Ereemantle bad alreiuly landed marines, and made preparations for the siege. The rapidity of our movements had prevented the transport of a battering train; there were, consequently, no other gull* but those ofthe fleet, which Admiral Free- mantle ImuLed with great activity, at the same time Ihe batteries were begun. O11 the lath, the town of Trieste was taken by Baron D'Aspre, and we pushed our posls on that side close to the ramparts. Colonel Robertson landed from Lissa, with detachments of the 35th, De Roll's, tlie CorsiCans, CalabresC, and the Italian Levy, with six pieces of field 1111 illerv and two mortars The' 16th our fire commenced, and in the evening Ibe windmill, a strong round lower, was occupied, Our works Visiting Clergyman this week at the Infirmary, the Rev.

Giles.— John Atcock, for attempting to pick the pocket of a person in the fair, vvas committed for further examination.— On the 9th instant, Richard Davies, of Dawley, labourer, for stealing a saw, the many both were totally spoiled. Very strong- suspicion fall* upon the stranger, v. hose servant had purchased some <. f the article with which the damage had been effected, and stood in the yard of the Inn as the company entered.

The principal inhabitants of Llangollen, nod its r, e gh- bourhood, in honour of the late splendid victoi i. s rest |\ ed that morning of Monday Ihe 6ih inst. should be' ushered in by the ringing of bells; thai a bonfire be inude on ILe summit of a hilt adjacent to the town 1 and Ihat the et, ... ing should conclude wilh a ball, to which ail the genny lor some miles round should be invited Accordingly ' the break of day was Ihe signal for tbe mefry peal— About sist o'clock iu tbe evening fire was set to an immense pile, erected on the top of a mountain adjoining the town, and its Haines illuminated the surrounding objects and scenery to an amazing distance: by order of the gentlemen who undertook the management of the festivities, a large quan- tity of ale, ( pari of' it a generous contribution from the- Ladies at Plasnevvydd) WHS conveyed to the i- cene of joy, and distributed to the populace, who drank health to otir good old King, the Marquis Wellington, General Sir Row- land Hill, & c. w ith loud huzzas— From hill tohill their echoing voices rang, And warlike deeds llie honest Welchmen sang. The effect was heightened by the discharge of one hun- dred rounds from cannon, conveyed there for the occasion, and tbe whole passed over without Ibe- slight. st accident. About eight o'clock the company began lo assemble at tbe Hand Inn, to join " Ihe sportive dance." The Orange Ribbon was universally worn by the Ladies, 011 various parts of their diess; and the Gentlemen had Orange ro- settes in the button- hole, or ribbons round the neck ; it had a very interesting effect, and formed a lively contrast with the wreaths of laurel which were tastefully displayed around the room. The Ball commenced with " the Russian Dance," and was kept up with great spirit till twelve o'clock, when the company retired to supper, which for taste, elegance, and profusion has seldom been surpassed ; the wines and confectionary were excellent; and the supper iu general drew forth the highest encomiums onMr. Phillips the landlord.— Several national airs on the Welch Harp served to enliven tbe hour of supper; Ihe chair was most ably filled by the President, Godfrey Lloyd, Esq. supported by Ihc Rev. Wm Jones, Curate of Llangollen, who n, led us Vice- President ; a few patriotic toasts having been drank, dancing was resumed, and continued till near five in ihe morning, when the company dispersed. Friday se'nnight, the Heads of the Colleges and Professors of the University of Oxford, iu full Convo- cation, testified their high sense of ihe value of Vaccine inoculation, by unanimously conferring oti Or. Jenner the degree of Doctor in Medicine, by diploma. The first quantity of Fish, on Lord Somerville's plan, arrived at Worcester on Wednesday, and was rapidly disposed of: and arrangements are mad. for furnishing that city with a regular supply. hi the article in our last page, under the head " Sham Parson," it is stated that he had married the young lady to whom lie paid his addresses whilst offici- ating as Curale of Tallaud, in Cornwall) the fact, however, is, he l ad merely entered into a contract of marriage with that unfortunate female; and, uuder that sanction, had obtained possession of her property, with which he decamped, as before stated.— Fresh charges, ol various descriptions, are daily exhibited against this extraordinary character, from all parts of tho country ; and, in point of enormity, almost exited belief. The Bishop of Bristol is likely to become the Patron, pro tempore, of the valuable Rectory of Dorchester, the Members of the Corporation of that Borough, who have the general right of presentation, being equally divided in the support of two candidates, four 011 each side, and both parties seeming determined to let the Living lapse to the Bishop ofthe Diocese, which it will do in tbe course of the present week, if the corporate body continue in the same adverse disposition. On Sunday, a man of the name of Jones, witb his son, were committed to Monmouth Gaol, by the Rev. W. Powell, for assisting in the escape of nine French officers from Abergavenny.— Il appeared, that Jones, who is a hawker and smuggler, had engaged, for £ b0(), to land them at some port in France; but, kuowin" that he should be punished ifit vvas discovered, in order) as he conceived, to secure himself, he wrote to the Captain of of a revenue cutter, to be in readiness to pick them up at a cerliiil point. However, the crew of the vessel which had been engaged refusing lo take them 011 board, the unfortunate and deluded French- men, disappointed and worn out with fatigue, retired to a small public- house in Newport; as soon as it was day- light sent a letter to the Mayor, informing him of their wish to surrender themselves, and they were, in consequence, all sent lo Moninoulh on Tuesday.

OUR. Ovfr limits will not allow of the whole being given, but the following will serve to shew lio. v much the present war with their old Mother * C nnlr: is deplored b) the federal part tif America, and how great in abhorrence they hold their new Ally. Amid those great events, ( says Mr. Curtis), which of late years have so convulsed the civilized world, the invasion of Russia forma a uidst grand and predominant feature. It seems as if the last energies of Europe were aroused 10 this consummate struggle.— Napoleon, mi ; lily- in genius and vast in resources, like a Colossus, hr. ti long bestrode theiEuropean world, and, fired with the rage of conquest, sought to plant his standard on tie banks of the Neva. His march is like Siroc ofthe desart spreading ruin and desolation around him— his course is knoWn by the smoke of villages cooling with human blood— his triumphs are heard in the lamenta- tions of human misery. The . host of Prussia retires— Al: seems his prey, until urged by high destiny he seeks tn rest from his labours iu the palace of the Czars, and finds in the flames of Moscow a funeral pyre for his ambition. Immortal Moscow 11— Magnanimous people 1 Who, rather than their ancient capital should afford to the tyrant a domicil, seize the torch, and fire at once the alt u s of their God, the temples of Iheir saints, and the sepulchres of their kings.— And are these the people whom the world has been pleased to denominate Barbarians ? True— the sun of science hath as yet but feebly twinkle! iu their frozen clime, but by Heaven, this lat- act of theirs would have done honour to tiie most splendid a- ra of ancient virtue— Aye, it would have immortalized old Rome even in her Fabian age, or Laccdemon in the days of Leonidas. " Tho' Moscow remains but an heap of blackened ruins, stiil f rom its ashes may be raked a gem of purest, brightest value— I mean ils great example 1 which tells to the nations of the world, that when a people are re- solved to serve their own rulers, and obey their own laws, among that people corruption can never enier, nor ca, n tyrants subdue them. Had the Austrian, the Ita- lian, or the Swiss, fired his Vienna, his Milan, or his Seine, Europe might lung since have been saved. '" From Ihe history of these events, let nations learn to place a firm reliance on the all- wise disposer of hu- iii i i affairs, who, even in her darkest day, raised up for Russia, tiie avenger of his country's wrongs, the aged, the illustrious Koutusnff. This venerable chief had been Ihe soldier of other wars. His spring of youth first budded in the fields of honours his meridian summer blazed high on Ihe walls of Oczatchoff, and though age mav fade Pie leaf of his autumn, slern winter can never v. ither a leaf of the laurel which binds his silvery brow ; — it must bloom, e en amid bis native snows. " Russia, gn mi! Thine own chains broken, break tlvou the chains of others. Loose from the fell tyrant's car the painted rations, who too long have tugged under his merciless lash. They taint and fall, unless speedily relieved. Grey warrior of tha North I if thine aged fittme can lit u more honours, go w het thy avenging sword on the tomb of Snwarrow, and again thunder in the ptaias of Italy— climb the Glacier steeps, where the descendant of Tell pine in ignominious bondage, ar. d sigh for their native liberty. Burst that confederation, linked only by the tyrant's power, nor furl thy conquer- ing banner, till it shall feel the breezes of Ihe Rhine.— Then pause 1 give to each nation the government it may choose, and retiring tothe polar forests, the blessings oi millions will cheer thy declining days, and the bril- lia t iiaio of glory encircle thy immortal fame. The r. ame of Koutusoffwiil not be ranked with the destroyers of nations, but will proudly swell the li t of virtuous heroes, with Vasa, with Tell, with Wallace, with Washington, deliverers of their country and benefactors of man. " Ere we leave the field of fame, let us pay due homage to the memory of the brave. Whenever the roving Cossaik shall gallop over Borodino's plains, his wild and warlike eje will rest with delight on the tumulus which contains Bagration's ashes. " Russia, farewell I So long as thou shall wield the sword of justice, the deliverance of nations mark the progress of thy march, may the eagle of victory perch on thy standard, aud the prayers of rescued humanity speed the triumph of thine arms 1 " Americans! let the events which have lately dis- tiaguishe tiie theatre of Europe, he held up as a mir- ror m which you may view the fate of nations, and I . ai r. o protect your own from those evils, which have b.- al en so many others. Think not because a vast, ocean intervenes, Ihe frantic ambition which has deso- lated ihc tairest portion of the old world, will look un- concerned toward the new. it was customary with ch: Cuius ol other days, to pause in the high career of ambition. Rome's great Julius, when arrived at the Rubicon, debated with himself whether be should pass those limits prescribed by the laws, and infringe those liberties which his illustrious family had founded, and himself sworn to protect, and Philip's warlike son, when in the midst of submissive nations, listened lo counsel, and retraced his conquering steps. But what limits, what barrcrs shall ever curb Napoleon's ambition? Think you, lhat he who hath scaled the Alps, would not attempt the And's * Aye, and that mighty genius which scared the Chamois from the snowy heights of St. Bernard, would too disturb the lonely Condor on the clouil- capt summits of the I himborazo. " W e should have thought that the monster's raven- ous m: iw must have long ere this been gorged with human sacrifice; but we should remember, that the marked characteristic of the rojal tyger is, that if once he tastes of human blood, he abandons not the banquet while a victim remains within his reach. " Bu-, happy Americans, jon enjoy this tyrant's love! There was a time when a t) rant's love would have gone hardly down in mj country— it was in the stern, pure age ol Ihe republic, lie loves you, forsooth I yes! as I> ulyphcmus loved Uljsses— wilh oue hand he beckons you to friendship, will) the other grasps a stone for your destruction. " Americans, if in sleeping the national bark through the tempestuous seas, which uow surround it, but two courses are left us— the one lo meet the embrace of Ill's hungry Scjlta— Ihe oilier lo combat the roaring tharjbdis of the main— kindred genius of mj country, seize the helm, and imbly dare thegulpli. If we perish, a rii) of glory will slill gleam distant on the horizon ot our fame; but if ever we permit the arms of the minister to entwine our liberties, we are strangled without a struggle !" The Speech of Mr. HARPER, delivered at Ihe same place, and ou the same . occasion, I hough in a st-, ic of eloquence less figurative and animated, is replete wilh sound argu- mc nt, drawn from historic facts, w ith a faithful detail of tin progress of Bonapiu te, and-* hose ultimate ambition was lo enslave Ihe whole civilized woild, till checked by the valour audsuund policy OIGKJSAT BRITAIN and of RUSSIA. " England and Russia stood alone. The utmost efforts ol England, aiding the Spaniards and Portuguese, and aided by them, were barely sufficient lo exclude the enemy front Portugal, and" keep him al bay in Spain. She could spare nothing for the direct assist- ance of Russia, except the co- operation of a fleet in the Baltic, and even that aid, not very effectual in itself, would be likely to become wholly ineffectual in the season of severest trial, by reason of tbe ice. " Such was the situation of Europe at the moment of attack ; ami the war which at the same moment was jjfclnred by the United States against England, was so » ned, whatever might haye been the intention of its authors, as to have the cffcel of direct and not incon- siderable co- operation wilh France. It was the act of a man who seeing another about to be set upon by a robber and assassin, chooses that moment to attack, under Ihe pretext of some trivial dispute, a persou going to Ihe aid of the intended victim. IK* then proceeds to deprecate tbe influence of France upon America, whose subjugation she would finally aim lo accomplish. " England once subdued, or forced to submit, would be marked out for peculiar vengeance. She must be broken drown, crippled, and rendered incapable of future effort. Her people must drain the cup of bitter- ness to the dregs; her government must be destroyed ; her national spirit broken and subdued; and all the splendid monuments of genius and industry, of arts and sciences, of refinement and taste, and of general happi- ness, which she has reared, must be levelled to the dust. " Britain subdued, France becomes omnipotent.— With the icy arms of death she embraces both hemi- spheres, The deadly shade of her dominion spreads over the land and sea. Nothing remains for the rest of the world but tame and slavish submission. " Our hope, therefore, the sheet- anchor of our safety, is in the final triumph of Russia, of which her victories already achieved have laid the ground- work, and afford a happy, and almost a sure presage. Shall we not then rejoice in these victories, with a joy great in proportion to the deliverance of which they are the foretaste and forerunners ? Shall we not express, with delightful enthusiasm, our admiration and gratitude towards him, to whose magnanimity, constancy, and power we, our children, and children's children, inf common with so many other nations, are to be indebted for this greatest of blessings? His victories are not for himself alone, nor for his own nation— Ihey are achieved in the cause of humanity and of civil society, even in the cause of France herself, that estimable and unfortunate nation, which is made to suffer unheard- of misery, in the attempts of her tyrant to rivet chains on the rest ofthe world; and whose deliverance from the iron yoke uuder which she writhes and bleeds and groans, can be expected from no other quarter. Tbe triumphal car of other conquerors has passed over the necks of prostrate nations. As the triumphal car of Alexander advances, prostrate nations rise up and hail him as their deliverer. His glory is the sun rising in the east, which vivifies and warms— not like the glory of other conquerors, a baleful star, which scorches and withers. Those hands from which his powerful arm has striken off the shackles, are every where lifted up to invoke blessings on his name. Hope dav, us again on the nations. Those whom the light has not yet reached, behold it afar off, and bless its approach. Those who, like us, had not yet been overwhelmed, but stood looking with awful and trembling anxiety on the impending storin, now see it dispelled, and begin again to breathe freely. To Alexander of Russia we owe if, under God, that we have this great cause of rejoicing, and the liberty to rejoice. Let us then, as far as depends on us, bestow on him the most glorious title that mortal man has ever received, the most glorious title that mortal man has ever deserved— ALEXANDER THE DELIVERER." We cannot conclude this interesting article without a short extract from Mr. CUSTIS'S answer to the RUS- SIAN MINISTER'S letter of thanks to him for his brilliant oration. It is conveyed in the following almost poetic and prophetic strain-— " Let the voice of America be heard in the breeze which bears the glad triumphs of Russia to the nations of the world, if our melody is distant, it will not be the less pleasing on that account. " Your Moscow, that mighty barrier which marks the limits of oppression's stride, will rise more resplend- ent from its ashes, while its ruins, like a monumental fabric, will tell to distant ages the heroic virtues which produced its fall. " The crisis approaches— The millenium of nations is surely at haud— The chastening arm of Providence must soon drop the desolating sword of war, to prune the benignant olive of peace. Wrhen the descendant of Peler the Great shall furl the standard of Pultowa on the banks of the Rhine, then will Ihe grand destiuies of Europe be consummated, and her afflicted nations, in the felicities of better days, will find relief from their past sufferings, while their sad experience will bless them with the wisdom so necessary to their future welfare,— Till which " consummation, so devoutly to be wished" by every friend to virtue or humanity, the true American says to your country :—' Russia, go on So long as thou shalt wield the sword of justice, or the deliverance of nations mark the progress of thy march, may the eagle of victory perch on thy standard, and the prayers of rescued humanity speed the triumph of thine arms I'" imperial ^ artiamcttt, HOUSE OF LORDS— MONDAY, DECEMBER 6. On the motion of Lord SIDMOUTH, the Local Militia Ser- vice Bill, the Exchequer Bills Bill, the Madder Duty, and the Scotch Salt Bills, wr- re read a third time, and passed. Lord Hoi. t. A ND, alluding to the Slave Trade, observed, that he gave the Government of the country every degree uf credit for the late treaties concluded with the Continental Powers ; at the same time he could not avoid saying, lhat if the Government of Holland was re- established, as lie had every reason to suppose it would, he considered it incumbent on Ministers to ask uf the States General a boon. It was no- torious lhat the Dutch carried on the SlaveTrade, and although Ministers had apparently neglected to n quest other powers with which they had concluded treaties, to abolish that in- human traffic, his lordship trusted there would be no neglect with, respect to Holland. Notwithstanding the abolition of that inhuman trade in England, it was at present carried on with vigour under the Spanish and Portuguese flags. — The F. arl nf LIVERPOOL said, it was then impossible to give the noble Baron an answer applicable to the question in all its bearings. He could only say, generally, that, in the different interests of society, none demanded more attention than tbe. abolition of the SlaveTrade. The legislature had adopted Ihe abolition of that traffic, nnd it would be ihe object of his Majesty's Government to induce all Foreign States with whom they were connected, to adopt the same l. ne of political justice ; and he hoped that the power alluded to by the noble Lord would feel no reluctance to adopt it. The Mutiny Bill was read a second time. Sham Parson.-*- On Tuesday, Thomas White, alias Richard Wilkinson, alias Richaid Thomas, alias William Whitfield, alias William Whitmore, was committed to Ihe County Gaol ot Glocester, charged ou the oaths of Job Thatcher, Thomas Tovey, aud John James, of Neivnham, with fotging the acceptance of William Jennings, of No. 3, Great Longford. stieet, Dublin, to a bill of exchange for 30/. drawn upon him hy the prisoner, in the name of " Thomas White," bearing date " Newnham, April < 2, 1812," and made payable to the order of the drawer. This bill, which was discounted bv Mr. Thatcher, was refused payment; nnd inquiries having been made respecting it, circumstances aruse, out uf which the present charge originated.— The pri- soner is the person who, at the period of the bill being drawn, was officiating as Curate of Newnham, under a feigned pre- tence of being possessed ofthe Clerical functions ; but, after ROYAL EXCHANGE ASSURANCE OFFICE. ^ F^ HE CORPORATION of the - FL.

November 30 — Wednesday, the 24- th instant, was certainly the most dreadful day ever known in this town, arid which has been productive of general sorrow aud extreme misery. On the pieceding evening about 250 men, of the National Guards, from the Hague, with two pieces of cannon, appeared before the town, and demanded of the Fiench Com- mandant, who had possession of ir, with about 25 men of his own nation, to surrender if. This was fulfilled, and on the same evening the town received its new garrison. On the following morning, this new garrison was unexpectedly sur- prised by a vei y numerous body nf French troops from Utrecht, provided with some pieces of artillery, aud after a small skir- mish, in which some men fell ou both sides, taken by storm. N w commenced tiie dreadful plundeiing, devastation, and inhuman minders. The houses which could not be opened on account of the doors and windows having been fastened, were beaten open by artillery ; cabinets, chests, and boxes weie cut aud broken open ; the ready money, uncoined gold anil silver, jewels, linen, and clothing stolen; valuable papers destroyed; glavrs, china, and other earthenware broken and thrown into the streets ; the poor inhabitants " already fright- ened to death, and begging for their lives, were forced to dis- cover where they had secreted their valuables. Death and destruction tiad at length penetrated into every habitation; the blood of the most virtuous husbands and fathers, of the best mothers, uf giey- haired ancients, of tender infants, stained the walls of their peaceful habitations, and streamed out of the houses along the streets. Two and twenty inhabit- ants cf this town, which had already suffered by the bar- barians, were cruelly murdered without any reason given for such proceeding. About 50 others were wounded more or less severely 1 several of whom must certainly die of then wounds. Not even the Ministers of religion were spared, although they had fled to tbe altar. Old men of upwards. of I eighty years, and infants iu their mother's arms, were im- mediately shot or slam by the sword. A woman in childbed, and who would have been delivered of tu ins, was deliberately shot through the body whilst in her bed, after having uti- invered her, and ihc bedsteads set on fiie, after miserably murdering the mother of het offspring. No tears of the poor creatures hi- egiug for mercy, no cries of kneeling children, could soften the hearts of those miscreants, who, oiMhe cuu- trary, and with loud laughter and derision, disgraceful to humanity, carried their cruelty so far a- lo commit murders beloie the eyes of the nearest relations, thiowiug out the bleeding bodies, coveied with dirt, in presence ot the de spairing widows and shrieking childten, and comuiitiug all abuses on the- naked ellipses. It is impossible to give any particular slatc. menl of the atiocities and cruelties com- puted, in this slight description, the pen refuses, and modesty toihids lodescribe all the enormities by these cannibals, who have letideied the formet French tyranny a mete pastime. Languor and mortal dread is to be read iu every countenance. At. the lirst meeting, people of all " ranks embrace each other, wondering to meet again alive, . Tne bloody streets, the broken buildings, Ihe furniture destroyed, form a picture from which every human being must start with horror. Those who formerly dispensed to otheis, are now themselves in want of the firs, necessaries of lite, and cast tbeir longing eyes to Iheir tellow Netherlanders, who, by the Divine Providence, nave been preserved fn m these executions. They remained here so long as till Ihey had carried off their bloody booty with stolen horses and carriages, and then, like monsters who shun the light of day, left this town m silence, like thieves, in he night ot the 27tb, leaving nothing behind them but blood and teais. Mr. Pulilo is said lo have written a polite letter to the Govcruoi uf Moscow, offering liberal terms for the wild beast Fandamme, in order to add it to Ins Mena- gerie. HOUSE OF COMMONS. In a Committee of Supply, Mr. ARBUTHNOT moved the vaiious Grants for the service of the year 1814, among them were: — For certain Officers of both Houses of Parliament, 1,1801. To defray the Charge of Fees uu Public Accounts, 8,0001. To defray the Charge of Incidental Expenses, 4,2001. For Secret Services, 175,0001. For Law Charges, 20,0001. For the Police Of Bow- street, 12,0001. For Extra Charges for the three Secretaries of State 15,0001. For printing and distributing Pal ish Registers, 61691, For the National Vaccine Establishment, 30001. For Printing and Stationery for the use of the House of Lords, 21,0001. For the Journals of the House of Commons, 25001. For pi lining the Votes, 28001, For Dissenting Ministers in England. 16151. For the same purposes in Ireland, 7531. These, with several other Grants, were agreed to without discussion, when the House resumed Tbe CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER, in a Committee of Ways and Means, moved, lhat the sum of 5,000,0001. be raised by way of Exchequer Bills towards the provision alieady led this Session. Two millions aud a half, he observed, had already been agreed to, which, with Ihe 5,000,0001. would make good tbe Exchequer Bills takeu up last year, and if agreed to, would leave the amount of Exchequer Bills • ne same as iu the preceding year.— A Resolution to this effect was agreed to, Mr. H. ADOINGTON moved the order of the day for receiving the Report of the Frame- bteaking Bill.— The report having been received, the ATTORNEY GENERAL proposed an Amend- ment, namely, affer the words, that " the offender should be transported for life," to add the following, " or for such a term nf years, not less than seven, as the Judge before whom he may be tried shall think fit to pronounce,"— which was agreed to. Mr. HORSSR brought up the Report of the Permanent In- solvent Debtors Bill.— Mr, Serjeant BEST wished the Bill to be considerably altered from what it then was, but deferred urging his objections to a future stage.— Mr. ABERCROMBIE then moved ' wone. w clauses, which after a few woids from Mr. LOCK HART, Mr. KUBRICK, and Mr. Serjeant BEST, were re- ceived and agreed to.— Tbe Report was then received. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 7. INSOLVENT OIBTORS. On the order of the day for the third reading of the Insol- vent Debtors Bill being read, Mr. Serjeant BEST moved, that the bill should be recommitted, which was opposed by Mr. HORNER.— Mr Serjeant BEST then proceeded to state his ob- jections to the bill. He particularly objected to the clause in the original bill, which enacted, that any prisoner who should conceal property to a greater amount than 201. should be considered as guilty of a capital offence. He also objected to the clause in the amended bill which directed, that the debtor should publish his notice in The London Gazette, and any other two papers which he should choose. If this clausc were left in its present state, a debtor wonlil have the power of selecting two such papers as he thought least likely to meet the eyes of his creditors. He also complained, that there was no provision in the bill by which a creditor, living at a distance, might cheaply oppose the discharge of bis debtor ; unless some such provision were made, all the op- posing clauses would be rendered nugatory.— These were some of the circumstances which called for revision th s bill. He was also of opinion that some distinction ought to be made between piisoners of different descriptions. He was fiieudty to the principle of the bill, and certainly no advocate for the imprisonment of ihe debtor; indeed, he thought tbe bill did not go far enough in this respect. He thought any man who became insolvent, with honest inten tions, should be at liberty to call his creditors together, state the situation of bis affairs to them, and on giving up his properly should be entitled to the benefits of the act, without going to prison at all : and, on the contrary, he should pro- pose, that any debtor who should, by vexatious law proceed- ings, delay his creditors, and put them to expense, should not ultimately be permitted to take the benefit of the aet till after he had been imprisoned 12 mouths* and he should, after ihe hill had behn read a third time, propose clauses to that effect— The bill was then read a third time, and Mr. Serjeant BEST pi oposed his clause for allowing persons to take the benefit of the act, even though no action should i> e hi ought against them.— Mr. HORNER acknowledged the weight of his learned friend's argument; but trusted the learned Serjeant would not, hy persevering in pressing amendments so impor- tant as those he had mentioned at this late stage of the measure, risk the bill altogether. Mr.. Horner then proceeded at considerable length, to aigue against the proposed alter- ations iu the law, and requested his learned friend would take a future time for proposing his clauses, when they might receive a more mature consideration.— After some farther observations from Mr. Lockbart, Mr. Abercrombie and Mr. Hammersley, the clause was negatived without a division.— Mr. Seijeant BEST then proposed his clause, providing that debtors going to law with their credit . ors, tor the purpose of delay, should not he entitled to their discharge ti! i after an imprisonment. of 12 months.— Upon this clause the gallery was cleared, and the clause negatived; the second clause was withdrawn, and the bill passed without further opposition. continuing there some few weeks* he was suspected to'be an i newf' of Xhf] I , Po, icitJS' on or before the 9th Day of January, ... .

It would be difficult to trace this extra- ordinary character through the vaiious disguises under which he has for several years been preying upon the public. Alter leaving Newnham, he went into Cornwall, and, by similar pretences, Introduced himself into the Curacy of Talland, near Looe, where he found his way into the first company, became very popular, and gained such especial favnur in fe- male society, that lie married a young lady of respectable connexions there ; and having obtained possession of part of her property, he, in a few days afterwards, set off for London, on very urgent business. Before the time fixed for his leturn had expired, Ibe friends of the lady were surprised by finding the death of Mr. Williamson announced in one of the Corn- wall Papers. At lirst, they concluded that the Printer had been imposed upon ; but, on a farther investigation, they discovered that the letter sent to the Printer was in the hand- writing of Will amson himself. His Clerical Itnbil, we pre- sume, being " thread- bare," he has latterly appeared gen- teelly dressed in coloured clothes, and has really a most pre- possessing appearance, and very engaging manners. Of late, he has been dashing about Biistol, Bath, and even the neigh- bourhood of Glocestershire, iu a smart barouche & fuur, - vith three seivantsiin livery; and ou Saturday he had the temerity to drive up to Ihe King's Head, in that city, with his carriage, horses, aud servants profusely decorated with orange ribbons, and reported, from Bristol, the news of an impoitant victoiy 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 last, at Worcester, ( through the spirited perse- verance of Messrs. Toxey and James, solicitors, of Neivnham) after having been pretty clo- ely followed up for the last two months; in which period these gcmlemeu have prevented his marrying two unsuspecting females, one of whom, resident at Bristol, has been involved in the most poignant distress, the consequence of the delusion practised upon her. At first, he denied any knowledge uf the parties by whom he was ap- prehended ; but their conviction of his identity rendered all denial vain; and he has since admitted that he is the persou known at Newnham under ihe title of the Rev. Thos. White. He uow asserts, that his real name is Richard Williamsun, and that he is a native of Ashley, iu Wiltshire. He has an ulcer, apparently of long standing, on his right leg. When his person was searched, about 1501, in Bank of England 20/. and 10/. notes, was feund upon him. Since being biought to Glocester, he has discharged some small, debts contracted at Newnham and in ihe neighbourhood, with a liberality and profusion which either implies a dread of his fate, or the extent of his means. Indeed, he says he is possessed of fund- ed propeity to the amount of many thousands, and numbers of certificates of stock were actually found among his papers. The account of his imprisonment has brought many persuns to see him; but he positively refuses an interview with any of them. as ihe usual Fifteen Davs allowed for Payment beyond the Date of each Policy will then expire.

That benevolent friend of the poor, James Webb, Esq. arrived at Birmingham on Monday the 6th inst. and in the course of that day, Tuesday, and Wednesday, gave sums of money and cloathing to many distressed persons, aud deposited small sums in Ihe hands of re- spectable individuals, to be distributed at their discretion. Report, as might be expected, magnified the money given from tens lo hundreds, and a great concourse of poor people thronged the Swan Yard, and the streets adjacent, all unreasonably expecting to partake of his bounty. On the point of leaving the Inn, and as the chaise was at the door, a gentleman waited upon him, at whose suggestion he very generously presented him with £ iO for the undermentioned charities:— for the Madras School £ b.— theFree Church£ i>.— the Dispen- sary £ 10.— and lor the Institution for Teaching the Deaf andDumb £ 20.— At Coventry, in the preceding week, Mr. Webb gave away a considerable amount, iu small sums, to the poor.

Miller, of Cambridge, took up a plant of wheat, wliich had been sown in the beginning of June, and divided it into eighteen parts, each of which were transplanted separately : aboui the latter end of September they were again removed, and divided into sixty- seven roots. In the end of March following, and beginning of April, Ihey were separated into five hundred plants, which yielded twenty- one thousand one hundred and nine ears; and this single grain thus yielded five hundred and seventy thousand fold, the produce measuring three pecks and three quar- ters, and weighed forty- seven pounds. Eail Fitzwilliam, in his speech to the Peterborough, 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 on the Continent; aud his Lordship parti- cularly alluded to the declension iu the price of corn— adding, that he should regulate his rents accord- ingly.

MUCH has been said by interested individuals against Medicines that are advertised ; but there is a very important observation to be made lespeeting theCordial Balm of Gilead, that unless its operation was gentle, safe, and efficacious in those complaints for which it is recommended, and universally administered with invariable success, it could not have obtained the unexampled demand it has acquired ; fur. as it has rarely the great advantage of a persuasive ad- vocate at the ear of Ihe patient, so nothing but his conviction of its virtues, by its salutary effects, can induce persever- ance, and yet teasonable perseverance is certainly most re. quisite lo enable even the happiest combination of chvmicals and galenicals to root out chronic diseases, and restore the valetudinarian to health.

At this time, though only 25 years of age, 1 despaired of ever being cured ; in this dreadful state I was advised to consult Mr. J unes Frazer, Surgeon, Dumfries, who, when he had examined my leg, recommended me lo make use of your Antiscorbutic Drops, assuring nte at the same lime, he bad no doubt of success; 1 immediately purchased a bottle, of which I had taken but a short time, when several splinters of bone dis- charged. I now, agreeable to Mr. Frazer's further advice, continued the use ot the Drops, and in a leiv weeks, another large splinter, four inches long, came away : after this iny leg put on a more healthy appearance, and however incredible this fact may appear, such was the rapid progression of heal- ing, that two small and one large bmile of your Drops, have, by the blessing of Providence, made a perfect cure, aud my leg is now anil has for some months past been in every respect as well and slrong as the other.
