Also lately published, BURKITT's E TUESDAY, JULY 26. The Prince of Orange lias taken the command of the British troops in Brabant, and that Province, it won d seem, is to be placed under the Government of Holland. A11 article from the Hague, of the 21st, ! says—" We hear from good authority, that Governor j Van de Capellen will take possession of Brabant, in llie I name of his Royal Highness our Sovereign, and that ; he is soon to set out from hence for thai purpose." In the Chamber of Deputies at Paris, on the gad 1 inst. Baron Louis brought forward the Budget for the year. He stated that I. IVHBS. • Under the late Despotism, Ihe Expeuces of the present year were taken at - - - 1,245,800,000 They have been since reduced lo ... 827,415,000 Next year the Ordinary and Extraordinary Expences would not exceed .... 618,000,000 The Minister lamented the necessity of keeping up exptnees for some time, but the change from a war to a peace establishment could not be sudden. The arrears amounted to 1,308,000,000 livres on Ihe lst of April last, from which a sum of 549,000,000 might be deducted, as the payment of it could not be strictly eufoiced; but there would still remain a sum of ; 759,000,000 legally s bject to payment. This is a burthen, said the Minister, which must be discharged, by economy in expenses, by the alienation of woods and unsold national property, by inscriptions 011 the Great Book at 5 per cent. & c. The Minister, in pointing out tbe justice of protecting the public creditor, adverted to the flourishing condition of Eng- land, which he explained by her unshaken fidelity in making good lier engagements to the creditors of the State. He next stated that the failure in making good those engagements in France, had annihilated credit on every great emergency ; and pointed out the benefit of a sinking fund, which, lie remarked, could not be enjoyed without a revenue exceeding the expenditure. He much wished to cast this seed of prosperity into Ihe finances ; but said, the formation of a sinking fttnd must be pos poned tid the budget of 1SI6 should be produced. Some accounts from Paris continue to describe the manifestations of public spirit in favour of a renewed war ; but it is believed, that as far as this temper is countenanced by persons in authority, it is only a soothing of Ihe turbulent spirits which an extreme j state of war necessarily leaves, aud which cannot find j rest, or their proper place in the community, for some time. This belief is very much strengthened by the ; foregoing statement of Baron Louis, in which there is nothing to countenance the idea of projected arma- measure was daily expected, notwithstanding the influence of the English Ambassador at tlic Court of Ferdinand. Letters have been received from Gibraltar to the Sill anil from Malaga lo the 7 Ih of this month. The stag- nation of trade was total throughout all the Spanish ports of the Mediterranean, and the difficulties of its revival were increased by the preparations for maritime war in progress by several of the Barbary Slates. By some Paris journals of Sunday last,' which arrived this morning, important information ha* been received respecting the Situation of Spain. The Clergy preach violently against ihe Cortes, and vdry ferocious pro- ceedings have occurred. The Infant Don Antonio is reported to have declared King Ferdinand incapable of governing from mental derangement, and the greatest changes are expected to take place. A disturbance has recently taken place among the French troops at Nemours. Il was proposed lo rni c Bonaparte's standard, and march at once lo Paris, lo invite Ihe Imperial Guards to join them. The whole party, office's and men, agreed. The officers, however, quickly perceived their foil*, and attempted In restrain the men, many of whom mutinied against them; and proceeded even to the shedding of blood. M trshal Ondinot, who was at the moment at Paris, no sooner received information of il, than he went down and hanged or shot three of the ringleaders. The King was inclined to have pardoned tilem; but the Marshal advised their instant execution. The Princess Charlotte came to town on Saturday, attended by her Ladies in waiting, in the Prince Regent's open carriage and four, with three of the Prince's foot- men as outriders, to visit the Princess of Wales, al her house in Cotinaught place, and afler dinner her Royal Highness returned to Cranbourn Lodge. This visit was to take leave of her Royal mother previous to Iter leaving town for Worthing, where her Roval Highness has taken a house", ll is said her Royal Highness does not return to London, but will proceed from that place; for a short time, to visit her native country. She takes part of her establishment with her. 2) Uertor Merit irill ever meet t. h-: 1' ubh. c Approbation.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 27. | An article in the Maniteur of Saturday last, dated Augsburg!;, July 15, slates that the last accounts from are little calculated to inspire confidence. It is that most serious differences have arisen, between Austria on the oue side, and Russia and Prussia 011 the other side; that Prussia claims tbe greater part of the ; kingdom of Saxony, which claim is supported by the ; RussiaiiGovernment; and that Austria formally opposes the partition, on the plea of friendship, consanguinity, j and interest, with the reigning family of Saxony, It is i added, that negociations have commenced on the sub- j ject; and that, iu the uncertainty of their issue, Russia has ordered her reserves to advance. In another article, under the head Brussels, it is stated, tbat the lale visit of the King of Prussia lo Paris was connected with this pretendeddispnte, aswell aswith some nets negotiations yf the highest importance carrying on at this moment by the Court nf the Thuilteries, and which, it is added, are buried in impenetrable mystery. In a former num- ber, a paragraph, said to be copied from a Nuremberg Journal, contained a rumour of a similar import, Il is strongly suspected, that these stories are of French invention, or, if they are copied from German Papers, that they are the offspring of some idle and mischievous gossiping in that country. THURSDAY, JULY 28. Paris Papers of Monday last have arrived. Louis XVIII. is recovered, and, after going to chape!, has appeared at a review of the garrison of Paris, by whom he was received with enthusiasm. An article from Frankfort asserts, that Ihe Minister* from the different Powers to the Cciugress at Vienna are to assemble in theCast'e of Sehoetibrun, where they will proceed to business before the arrival of their respective Sovereigns. Tbe Emperor of Russia and King of Prussia were expected at Vienna early Ibis month, where great preparations had been made for their reception. Their non- appearance hid evrited much surprise, and given rise to various unpleasant Specula tion*. But Iheir presence was promised wlieu the Congress commenced its sittings. Should this pro- mise not be fulfilled, as it is now insinuated, then, indeed, apprehensions of a misunderstanding may be enlerlained. Pressing business at st Petersburg has been assigned as a reason lor Alexander'* not visitinff the Austrian capital > but whoe* er traces the course and time spent on the way by the Sovereigns of Russia and Prussia will find grounds lor doubting this excuse. Private Letters from Vienna also slate one fact, of whicb no certain proof lias yet appeared before the public, namely, the attachment of Ihe Archduchess Maria Louisa for Bonaparte. This might be justified, but the Archduchess affects to look down upon ail Germans as inferior to the French, and to hold iu higher esteem Ihe new family of Corsica than llie ancient house of Happsbnrg. she speaks nothing but French, dines at the fashionable Freuch hour <> l eight, instead of three, the Austrian court hour, and by this conduct has rendered herself verv unpopular in Vienna. By the Paris Journals received this morning, we lind her Royal Highness has arrived at Aix in Provence, to drink the waters, after which, it is thought, she will visit her husband in Elba. He lias requested that the English frigate which conveyed Itini from Fiance might attend at Nice, there to receive his wife and soil, and bring them to him. Desirous of shewing her Royal Highness every attentiou ( she now being Ihe gre itcard he has to play), he lias sent CO of his Polish lancers to Parma to escort her as a guard. This at- tention will be most gratifying to Hie Archduchess, who in ail probability will sail for Elba after a short st ly at Aix, and there becotm- the instrument of Bonaparte's designs. The Paris Journals farther stale, that the Emperor Francis will vis t Italy in Septeinbtv, and it is rumoured that an interv evv will then ta. vo pl ice between him and Bonaparte I Should this rumour prove well founded, 110 wonder need tneu exist, that the Disturber of Ihe Wor d should still be able to pre- vent the Repose of Europe. Basle, July 17.— The English Legation in Switzer- land has arrived sooner than was expected, in order to treat, sooner than oilier powers, for a corps of S'viss i troops, which Great Britain wishes to lake into her | service. The advices from Cadiz, to the 7th instant, give an I affecting picture of the unsettled state of Spain. There j were numberless alarming repor's. Some sta ed that i Ferdinand had left. Madrid. Others that Charles IV. | was about to be called again to L e Throne. Otlieri tbat Miua was determined to . restore freedom to his countrymen, anil was at the head of an armv aoa. nst which the servile party could not bring any force to be depended on. It is difficult to form auy conjecture of the true state of facts ; for not only lias the Liberty of the Press been restrained, but the Press itself almost annihilated. The circulation of English newspapers lias been prohibited by public order; all the editors of the Cadiz papers, without exception, have been thrown into prison ; and no journal is allowed to circulate but the . Madrid Gazette. The Paris papers affirm, lhat King Ferdinand, who was removed from the rojal authority in sicdv, lias been restored to it by the English. Will the oilier Sovereigns restore his Mnjsly King Ferdinand to lUe other more valtiab e half of bis dominion*. Naples f All the foreign corps iu our service, including the King's German Legmn, are directed lo be sent to Ostend, 011 their arrival from the South of France, on their way to Hanover.

In Ihc mean l io. e, another Paris Paper, tbe Gazette de France, contains, under the head'-"-" Madrid, July 14," a very different repre- sentation from tbat published on the same day l) y Ihe Spanish Ambassador. Tins arlicle says, " Such is the slale of llie finances, and snch the pressure of evils of every kind, that we cannot behold the Inture without extreme anxiety. The northern provinces are disturbed. In Castile the dis contented have set fire to the Convents, which the Monks were preparing to re- orenpy " Annexed to the JMoniteur of the 25th, are two Sup- plements, containing the Repwrt presented to the King by the Minister of Finances, respecting the State of the Finances on the 1st of April, IS14, and on the Budgets of this and the next year. The sums allolted to the different Services of the year 181- 5, arc as follow;— ciril List Frs. 23,000,000 RoyalTamilv 8,000,000 House of Peers 4,000,000 House of Deputies 3,200,000 Chancery 20,000,000 Foreign affairs ... 9.500,000 Interior 85,000,000 Army 200,000,000 Navy 5), 01) 0,000 General Police 1,000,000 Finance* 23,000,000 • Public Debt 100,000,000 Interest of Securities ... 8,080,000 Expense of Negociations 10,000,000 547,700,000 Excess of ( lie Receipts assigned for the payment of arrears 70,300,000 Tol d Expenditure $ 18,000,000 Presumed amount of receipts 618,000,000 It will appear from this statement, that the army • will occasion not much less than one- half of Ihe real ex- penditure, and absorb about £ 9,000,000 sterling. It will be recollected, thai the Minister, in his Report 011 llvs subject to the House of Deputies, alluded lo the in- tention " of maintaining an army " worthy of the glory of France j" and the sum allotted for its maintenance fully proves the determination of the Government to act up lo this intention. The French domestic news state that Gen. Andreossi lias been confirmt- d in bis diplomatic mission at the Porte. Tins is Ihe personage, who had been guilty, some months back, of such violence against the Austrian Minister at Constantinople, and who had hired a rabble of Janissaries to dispossess him of bis palace. This nomination is not very complimentary towards Austria. The National Guards of Paris, who, by- tlie- bye, amount lo about35,000 men, are dulled dailv 10 that city ' I his is rather an extraordinary in usnre in a country jusl restored to peacc after a long and desolating war, and which besides complains of tbe disorder of her finances The Vienna news, received this morning, confidently anticipates a visit from the Emperor Alexander lo lhat city; and without making the slightest allusion to the reports copied from the Franconian Papers, simply say, that the journey of the Emperor Alexander to the Austrian capital has been 011I) deferred m consequence of pressing representations from the Senate lo haslen his re: urn to St. Petersburgh. The stay of theKing of Prussia in Switzerland will be much longer than was imagined. His Majesty will not arrive 11I Berlin till Ihe beginning of next month. Acco. ding lo a German paper, the French troops who are now traversing Poland, 011 their return from Russia, contradict the report of General Vandamme havin<>' haugeJ himself. They stale, 011 the contrary, that 1 his General, having paid his ransom, entered into the service of the Po le. A Dutch and a Hamburgh mail have arrived. The intelligence is important, inasmuch as it affords good grounds lo hope that ihe dispute with Norway will be amicably adjusted; a prospect ot the most consolatory nature io every friend of humanity, as thereby the blood of a brave antl inoffensive people will he prevented from being ineffectually and uselessly shed. Prince Christian lias accepted an armistice proposed by the Swedish General Essen. Bv the Hamburgh mail we have letters from thence to the 20th mstant. We have so long had complaints 011 the inactivity, if not tola! suspension of trade on the banks of tlie Elbe, that il is with much pleasure we learn hy the present opportunity, that commerce is in progress of re- organization, and as rapidly as the recent misiortunes of that part of the Continent will allow, d in, a.— This country, into which Ihe prying eye of " European discovery has uol yet been able lo penetrate, is become the scene ofa most sangninnary civil war. The following is an extiact uf a letter from Canton on this snbjei 1 :—*'' A furious war rages at present in the very heart of ihe country, and extends to the very capital of the em- i. iic. This civil war bas been attended u ith various fortune. The fcuperslitKin of the guide of Ihe rebel army 011 one oc- casion saved the Imperialists, and occasioned tbe overthrow of their antagonists ; lie fancied he saw the Red Dragon of China descending from the clouds to seize him ; Ihe vision was, however, too late 10 save him, and he fell in the general massacre There is one circumstance connected with this rebellion of greater interest by much than the accurate or exaggerated accounts of the numbers lhat hare fallen ( in Pekin, whose gates wereclosed three days, it is staled that a million were slain), Ibe fate of the battles, or the many punishments that have been inflicted 011 Ihe captives It is said thai a sect has sprung up in China, corresponding iu almost every essential with the liluminati; Ihey are pledged 10 each other by the most solemn bonds, known mutually hy signs and tokens, and engage with as little discretion, as 10 I he means ami performance of all acts for the general benefit, as did formerly Ihe members of Ihe Secret Tribunal of Germany.

Some of its provinces have been in rebellion long, and the fidelity ofotherstiucluatiug with the event* of the day I give you this report of the lllriniinati as I have il : if true, it must be allowed to be a very curious fact, and a I heme for much speculation, that rebellion in China should owe its most powerful spring to thc rise of a sect lhat contributed, al least something, by many thought verv largely, lo tbe disturbance* of Europe, commencing in cflVct with the French Revolution. 1' hold themselves in readiness to leave this country embark for Brabant. Slave Trade.— It appears by a return made to the House of Commons front tho Colonial Department, dated the 5th inst. of the slave ships condemned in the British Colonies, together with the number of slaves they had on board," from 1803 to 1812, that no less than forty vessels were condemned during that period ; viz. twenty- seven at Sierra Leone, five at the Cape, Ihree at the Bahamas, two at Barbadoes, and three at Jamaica, containing, altogether, ' 625- 7 slaves; of whom 1200 were females. SATURDAY, JULY 30. The Gazette of this evening contains a Proclama- tion " for recalling and prohibiting his Majesty's natural born subjects from serving in the sea or laud force! of the United States of America " It also states that the Right Hon. Lord Binning, and the Right Hon. William Huskis- son, were on Friday sworn of his Majesty's Privy Council. The Gazette also contains the ceremonial ofthe knighthood and investiture of Lieutenant- General Henry Clinton and Admiral William Young with the insignias of the Order of the Bath; the appointment of Lord Gambier, H. Goul- bourn, and W. Adam, Esqrs. lo be his Majesty's Commis- sioners for negocialing and concluding a treaty of peace with America ; of A St. John Baker, Esq. to be Secretary to Ihe above Commission ; and of Ihe Honourable A. Percy, to be Secretary of Legation at Turin. This Gazette likewise announce* that his Excellency the Duke de Monlellano and Del Arco, Ambassador from the Court of Spain, had an audience of the Prince Regent, and invested his Royal Highness wilh Ihe insignia ofthe Grand Cross of Ihe Order of Charles III. of Spain. The report of an intention ofthe Archduchess Maria Louisa lo go to Bonaparte, is contradicted by an article from Parma. All the reports of hostile designs, enter- tained by Russia and Prussia against Austria, arc also stated to be little worthy of attention. It s said, the Emperor ot Austria has required that the stay of the Archduchess Maria Louisa at the baths of Aix shall not exceed six weeks, and that the Prince of Parma, her son, shall remain at Vienna, where the Archduchess herself is expected about Ihe middle of August. In order to prevent all possible jealousy or misunderstanding, the Court of France has been ap- prized of this journey, and the motives to it. The Emperor forbids his daughter from visiting Bonaparte, who, however, takes all steps lo see his wife. Leipsic, July 17.— The Emperor of Russia came here unexpectedly yesterday noon. After dinner, he visited the Princess Elisabeth of Saxony, the Duke of Anhalt- Dessan, and an officer, who was severely wound- ed at the battle of Leipsic. This day his Majesty pro- ceeded for Petersburgh. The French papers are replete with observations on, and statements of the designs of Austria; but so far from these appearing lo be matter of fact, it would no - almost seem that they are merely fabrications of the French Journalists, made use of for the purpose of heaping abuse on the Court of Vienna. The principal Authorities of the Duchy of Warsaw have made an attempt to engage the allied Sovereigns lo re- establish the independence of Poland. An appeal directed to this object, was, it is said, presented to the Sovereigns at Paris, on the 15th of April. The state- ment of Kosciusko's return with the Polish Iroops that had transferred their services to Russia, on the down- fall of Bonaparte, is premature. That patriot is said to be resolved not to revisit his country, till its exist- ence, as a nation, shall be fully established and guaranteed. The settlement of Poland will be one of ihe objects of deliberation at the approaching Congress at Vienna. Ths Marqu'. s of Salisbury gave bis annual splendid entertainment to Ihe Judges oy the Home Circuit, and which was honoured with ihe presence of the Duke of Wellington, on the 24th inst. at Hatfield House, long cele- brated for the magnificent hospitality of its noble owner. On his Grace's arrival in the Park, he was saluted by a discharge of forty- five rounds of artillery, the number of his years. The two Corporations of Hertford and St. Alban's addressed the Dnke,' and presented him with Iheir respective Freedoms, after which he went to tbe centre window, iu King James's room, and shewed himself lo Ihe vast assemblage, which the occasion had collected Afler d uller he condescendingly walked on the lawn, and shook hands with the people. About 120 guests sat down to a most sumptuous dinner. In short, a prouder day for the dignified House of Cecil it never before saw ! It is said to be the Marquis's intention to give a grand entertainment to the Duke of Wellington, 011 Wednesday next. A New City.— One of Ihe learned and pious Mis- sionaries in the South of Africa, has lately penetrated into the interior, & discovered a city, never before heard of, containing 1500 houses. It i:; gratifying to learn, lhat Christianity rapidly spreads thro' all South Africa. Sadler's Balloon.— Yesterday the curious part of the inhabitants of London were on Ibe alert, to witness another departure in Sadler's balloon from Burlington House The aerial voyage in this instance was rendered peculiarly interesting. A Miss Thompson, who is an in- mate in Mr. Sadler's family, and tbe same lady who ascend- ed with him from Dublin, was to taken seal in Ihe car with Mr. Sadler, jun. Aerostation is not the subject of so much admiration as it was some years since ; but the ap- pearance of a lady flying on the wings of Ihe wind, is now almost a novelty in England No lady Via* made the at- tempt since Madame Garncrin went up at Vauxhall, and the undertaking on the present occasion was a matter of attraction. There is a disposition on the part of a British public, to sanction and support every woman, who boldly throws herself on their protection ; hundreds of thousands attended to bestow applause and encouragement. The wiud, which had blown IVcsh from Ihe south west quartei . luring the day, increased to a strong gale, aod many persons were apprehensive the lady would not ascend ; in that Ihey were, however, quite mistaken. The gale, which occasioned the balloon to move, notwithstanding its confinement, with of Great Britain, an. l for applying fhe sum of £ 200,000 British currency for tbe service of Ireland." To which Bill your faithful Commons, with all humility, entreat his Majesty's Royal Assent." The Speaker then handed the Vole of Credit Bill to the Clerk, and the Royal Assent having been given thereto in thc usual form, his Royal. Highness the Prince Regent delivered the following speech : — My Lords, and Gentlemen, I cannot close this Si- ssiou of Parliament, without re- peatingthe expression of iny deepregrel al the continuance of His Majesty's lamentable indisposition. When, iu consequence of lhat calamity, the Powers of Government were first entrusted to me, 1 found this country engaged in a war with the gvealer part of Europe — I deter- mined to adhere lo that line of policy which His Majesty had adopted, and in which he had persevered under so many and such trying difficulties. The ssealous and unremitting support and assistance which 1 have received from you, and from all classes of His Majesty's subject* ; the consummate skill and ability dis- played by the great Commander, whose service* yon have so iustlv acknowledged; and the valour and intrepidity of His Majesty's Forces by Sea and Land, have enabled me, under thc blessing of Divine Providence, lo surmount all tbe difficulties wil h which 1 have bad to coot end. 1 have the satisfaction of contemplating the full ac- complishment of all those objects for which the war was either undertaken or continued; and thc unexampled exertions of this country, combined wilb t hose of His Ma- jesty's Allies, have succeeded in effecting the deliverance of Europe from the most galling and oppressive Tyranny under which il has ever laboured. The Restoration of so many of the ancient and legitimate Governments of the Continent affords the best prospect of the permanence of that Peace which, iu conjunction with His Majesty's Allies, I have concluded : And you may rely 011 my efforts being directed at the approaching Congress to complete the Settlement of Europe, which has been already so auspiciously beg un; and to promote, upon priu- ciples ofjustice and impartiality, all those measures which may appear to be best calculated to secure the tranquillity and happiness of ail nations engaged in the late war. I regret the continuance of hostilities with the United States of America. Not withstanding the unprovoked ag- gression of tlie Government of that country, and the cir considerable agitation, had no effect on the intention ofthe cumstances under which it took place, I am sincerely female aeronaut; she refined to liear any observation to! desirous of the restoration of peace between the two nations alter her resolution, exclaiming to her companion, " Can ; upon conditions honourable to both.

At fo A r o'clock the halloo;, contained gas enough to carry » Gentlemen of the Rouse of Commons, 7' he Prince Regent's Levee.— Yesterday, at one o'clock, a Guard of- Honour marched into the Court- yard of Carlton House, aud several parties of the Royal Horse Guards lined the streets, previous to his Roylil Highness the Prince Eeneni holding a Levee, which was very numerously iv: d splendidly attended. by the nobility, officers and others, who were anxious lo pay their respects at the close of the season. The carriages were near three hours setting down The band of the Coldstream Regiment of Foot Guards attended in their Siate uniform, and played some delightful pieces, which considerably enlivened the scene The appearance of the Court was truly magnificent — After the S ./ vee, his Royal Highness ihe Prince Regent retired to his closet, when the Kev. Doctors Rippon and Collyers, and a numerous and highly respectable deputation of Dissenting Ministers, attended with a very affectionate A e'dress, which was i< vl lo his Royal Highness by the Rev. Dr. Ripp n, upon the general restoration of Pence. His Royal Himbue s delivered an - appropriate and dignified reply, and the deputation was most graciously received — The lale Earl Howe*.-., and nno. tber red ribbon was de- livered up to tSie Prince Regent.— An Investiture of the Ord< r ofthe Bath Mien took place, and a procession was A letter was received at Lloyd's, this morning, irora the British Consul's office at Cadiz, stating that the Flying Fish cutter, of Hastings, sailed from Leghorn, with a cars; o of oil, silk-, & c. on the 31st of May; passed the Streights of Gibraltar on the 12th of June; and on thc 25th was captured bv the Sabine American schooner privateer, mounting - 8 long nines and 2 long twelves, with a complement of 107 men. The Sabine had, according to the report of the master of the Flying Fish, already made seven prizes ( including the Countess of Harcourt East Indiaman, after a severe action), and proceeded for Cuervo, one ofthe Western islands, to water; and it was the intention of her Commander to intercept the Gold and Ivory ships from the Coast, It is strongly rumoured that Mr. Canning is again about to occupy a Ministerial station. As he wishes to accompany his eldest son on a voyage to a warm elimate, which is necessary for the restoration of his health, Mr Canning, it is supposed, will become our Ambassador to the Court of Lisbon; an office, however, of far more im- portance at present than inordinary limes. Mr Canning certainly proposes remaining a year, at least, in Lisbon; and when he first goes there, he will he accompanied by several friends, who will make t heir summer's excursion to that country. The other appointments spoken of are— Mr. Wellesley Pole, to be Master ofthe Mint, and a Member of tbe Cabinet; Mr. Huskisson, Privy Counsellor, and Sur- veyor ofthe Woods and Forests ; Mr. Blachford, a Lord of the Treasury.; Mr. Sliiiges Bourne, a SVivy Counsellor, and Member of the India Board. Of these, however, only the appoiulm; nt of Mr Huskisson is finally settled'; and his talents, all admit, must be of great value to any iVs'mis- fry.— The following appointments are also spoken of — Lord Kensington is to be appointed a Lord oftheAdmnuity, in the room of Mr. W Dundas Whatsituation this hitter Gentleman is'to have is not yet. known. Lord Glenbervie, who resigns the SurveyorRhip of Woods and Forests to Mr Husliis- son, is to have another thousand per annum added lo his existing pension. Mr. Bnskisson's present appoint- ment has, it is said, an eye to the Chancellorship ofthe Exchequer. Lord Aberdeen goes to Vienna, to present the Order of the Garter to the Emperor of Austria. Lord Stewart is to be petmauent Ambassador at that Court; whilst Lord Castlereagh manages the more weighty con cerns of the Cong- ess. Yesterday the Household Cavalry brigade, consisting of the two regiments of Life Guards and the Oxford Blues, marched into Greenwich, Deptford, and the adjacent villages, from France* and on Monday next, this fine body of men will be reviewed by the Prince Regent, on Blackhealh. After the review* they wiil march into London, to occupy their for mer quarters. The following painful intelligence is communicated in a letter from Cowes, dated 27th July:— A melancholy accident took place yesterday in Hamble river, by the up setting of a punt, in which was'Richard Holmes, Esq. iV] ember for Newport, and only brother of Sir Leonard Worolev jjUolfrus, Bart. Member for the said town, and a young mart of this town, by the name of Pgrkman, who, although they could both swim exceeding well, were un- fortunately drowned, by getting entangled in the weeds- Mr. Holnves was not more than years of age, and a young man of most amiable manner and disposition ; aud such was the respect iti which he was held, that hi* death has oc- casi. tied an universal gloom throughout the island. The Dublin papers received yesterday present a most lamentable picture of i- ie state of tive cooutry. To such a hei .: ht, it is stated, has violence aiid insubordina- tion been carried, that Judge Fletcher, in travelling the circuit from Kilkenny to Ctonmell, was obliged to have an escort" of IS dragoons^ notwithstanding which, in the town of Caltan, the populace pelted him with stones. The Irish Peace Preservation Bill ( see last page) I was read a third time in ttie House of Lerds jesjlerdav, the aeronauts seventy miles, the distance it was calculated j they would go. It was then partly affixed to the car, and j at half past four the attendants removed it from the canvas : screens to the other side of the yard, in order to give it room to clear the buildings. Mr. Sadler, jnn. got into the car with much coolness, and Was busilv employed tying the cords which fastened the net- work, when Miss Thompson , came with several ladies and gentlemen, her friends. She was dressed in a lilac silk- pelisse, with a neat straw hat and feather; she was interesting in her appearance, and genteel j in manner A ; i indescribable sensation evidently pervaded • the feeling par' ofthe spectators.— The confusion occasion- | ed bv moving ' he balloon was enough to shake the firmest j nerves, the lady, however, did not appear to feel il. Hav- j ing taken her station in the car, the balloon, under the direction of Mr ' Sadler, sen. was conveyed to a platform, where the car rested. A pause ensued, during which the friends of the adventurers took a farewell— Those who ob- served, at that moment, the- fcoti steoance of the young lady, thought there was asvSp^ a'aivceof emotion ; a tear stood in the eye of several of the spectators. That was the mo- ment when feeling was beyond description. The car was released from the hands of the men who had held it, and the balloon mounted with great rapidity, dashing over the north east wing of Burlington House. Miss Thompson stood erect, and waved her white handkerchief, aud Mr. Sadler, jun waved the flag. Both acted with all the courage imaginable, returning the shouts of the people until,' lost fo view— Impelled by the wind, it drove away to the north, ah uit two points east, passing over Islington on the way to Essex— They landed at Coggersliall at half- past five o'clock, having travelled 48 miles in about as many minutes. Bo& ing.— A battle for 20 guineas a side, was fought on Monday, at Ridge Common, Oxfordshire, between B. Forrester, a Farmer, and S Hartlet, a butcher. The combatants were'cousin's, and a mutual attachment to a young widow in thevillage led to the combat. They were a? hie' c young men, of 13 stone. The battle was maintained with most deteimined resolution one hour and a quarter, when Forrester gave in. Both were blind after half an hour's fighting, and above 100 heavy biJs w ire c'jsrefcanged. Mr. Charles Dibdin, celebrated for his musical talents and songs, died on Monday morning, at his house at Camden Town. PROROGATION OF PARLIAMENT. ' T'his day, at two o'clock, his Royal Highness the Prince Regent went to the House of Lords, accompanied by the usual attendants, the Duke of Wellington bearing the sword of state, for the purpose of proroguing Parliament. His Roval Highness having taken his seat on the throne, with the Ministers, the Archbishops, and the Royal Dukes on his right and left, fhe SPEAKER ofthe House of Com- mons, accompanied by several members, appeared at the Bar, with the Vote of Credit Bill in his hand, and, after bowing to the Prince Regent* addressed his Royal Highness in the following terms u May it please your Royal Highness, *< We, his Majesty's most dutiful and loyal subjects, the Commons of Great ^ Britain and Ireland, do now attend your Royal Highness with our Ikst Bill of Supply for the service of- the present year Assembled a period when the fate of Eufope was still doubtful, ae. d balanced by alternate hopes and reverses, we have been anxious^ but not inactive spectators of these great transactions which have Wrought so fortunate change in the stale of t he rivilifced world. " During this portentous interval, we have pursued our legislative labours according to our accustomed course applying practical remedies to the practical evils incident to old establishments, or arising out of new Occurrences; in some cases proceeding experimentally, bv laws ofa limit- ed duration, in others collect ing such materials of informa- tion as may lay the ground for future measures ; and those w ho may come after lis will see traces of that progressive improvement, which the sober habit of this country cauti- ously, but not yelucKantl'y, adopts into the system of its domestic policy and jurisprudence.— Willi respect to our financial arrangements, by the provident measures of a former Session, we have been enabled to refrain from aug- menting the burthens of tlie people, ( ftfd at the same time to make our military exe'rtions correspond with the scale of pissing evebts. " Whilst we have been thus employed, the destinies of Europe have been gradually unrolled before our eyes ; and the powerful nations of the North, seeding forth their collec- tivestreiigth to try the last issues of wai^ whilstGveatBritain and her Allies- were, with equal vigour, advancing from the South, their joint efforts have at length accomplished the downfall of 1 tie greatest military despotism which, in modern days, has disgraced a » d desolated the earth. in these arduous struggles, we can look back, with just pride, 011 the discharge of our high duties. The British army, modelled upon a wise system, steadily and imparti- ally administered at home, and conducted by consummate skill and valour in the field, has home its complete share in the glorious conclusion of this long and eventful war ; and his Majesty's faithful Commons have gladly lent their aid to maintain the honours and dignities of those illustrious Commanders, whom the wisdom of the Sovereign has called upon to surround his Throne. u in the peace which has since followed, the efforts of this country have heen not . less glorious. The wise and liberal policy of our Government, which announced justice and equality of rights to be the basis of our diplomatic system, has been happily sustained abroad. The British name now stands high in policy as in arms; and an en- lightened people has justly applauded the firmness and temper which have conciliated and cemented the interests of Allies, cheered the doubtful, animated the zealous, and united the deliverers and the delivered in a peace, honour- able and advantageous to all the contracting Powers. The eventsof our own times have out- run the ordinary march of history. Peace restored, commerce revived, thrones re- established, afford the well- founded hope, that the . same councils and the same master- hand, so mainly instrumental in the work hitherto accomplished, may, at the approaching Congress, extend and fix the work of peace throughout Europe; and a further hope, that the earnest anit universal prayer of this great country mav prevail upon the nations of Europe, in re- establishing their own happi nee?, to concur also in putting an effectual end to the wrongs and desolation of Africa. u Auspicious, however, as our present state may seem to be, the instaVditv I thank you for the liberal provision which you have made for the services of the present year— The circum- stances under which the war in Europe lias been concluded, and the necessity of maintaining for a lime a body of troops in British pay upon the Continent, have rendered a con- tinuance of our foreign expenditure unavoidable. You may rely, however, upon my determination to reduce the ex- pences of the country as rapidly as the nature of our situation will permit. My Lords, and Gentlemen, It is a peculiar gratification to me to be enabled to assure you, that full justice is rendered throughout Europe to that manly perseverance which, amidst the convulsions on the Continent, has preserved this country against all ihe designs of its enemies, has augmented the resources and extended the dominions of the British Empire, and has proved in its result as beneficial to other nations as to our own. His Majesty's subjects cannot fail to be deeply sensible of the distinguished advantages which they have possessed; and I am persuaded that they will ascribe them, under Providence, to that Constitution . which it has now for a century been the object of my family to maintain unim- paired, and under which the people of tikis realm have enjoyed more of real liberty al home and of true glory abroad than has ever fallen to the lot ofany nation. After which the Lord Chancellor, by the Prince Regent's command, prorogued the Parliament to Saturday, the 27th day of August next. While the House of Commons was waiting for the Usher of the Black Rod, a long conversation look place relative to the Princess ot Wale's leaving this country.— Mr TIERNEY put several questions to Lord Castlereagh as tothe propos- ed Slav of her Royal Highness in Germany; he hoped that as the increased revenue had been voted to maintain her Royal Highness in adequate splendour in this country, that in the event of her leaving England altogether, no remittances should be made without ihe concurrence of Parliament.—- Lord CASTLEREAGH, in reply, observed that he was the last person to be consulted, and that to Mr. Whitbread, who was more in her Royal Highness's confi- dence than he was, the question should have been made. His Lordship then stated, that al 1 he knew of her Royal Highness's intentions was, that she had signified to one" of his Majesty's Ministers, to have it communicated to the Regent her intention of going lo the Continent ; to which his Royal Highness replied, that he. had no objection, if it contributed more to the Comfort of the Princess of Wales. He was sure lhat Parliament, in voting for the grant, had no idea of imprisoning her Royal Highness in this country. — Mr. TIERNEY stated, that he had been authorized by Mr. Whitbread to say, not only that he had given no advice to her Royal Highness to quit this country, but that he had advised her not to do so. made into ihe Prince's closet iu the usual order.— The and ordered to be reported. | 0DSTECRTPT. LONDON, Monday flight, August 1, 1814. Saturday afternoon Mr. Morier, who was one of the Commissiouei s sent to Norway, anived in a chaise and four at the Foreign Office, in Downing- street, fromGottenburgh. The contents of hi* dispatches have not transpired; but letters from Gottenburgh state, that the Swedes had en- tered Norway after a severe engagement; for the truth of this, however, we do not pledge ourselves.— Courier. The Speech from the Throne at the close of a Session rarely notices public measures prospectively ; it is of much less importance than the Speech at the opening of Parliament. On the present occasion the Speech con- tains one important prospective passage— that in which the cxpence of still keeping for a time in our pay a body of foreign troops, is announced So the House of Commons as the Guardian of the Public Purse. This sufficiently proves that Government is not without apprehensions respecting the final settlement ofthe Continent; or, at least, that circumstances exi^ t which render it prudent for this country to maintain an imposing attitude. The Ex- Emueror Bonaparte gave Captain Usher on his landing at Elba, a most splendid snuff- box, the lid of which is covered with diamonds, valued at £ 2,500. Three per cent. Consols Grand Jubilee.— The j'oyous div set f » part by the British Government for a public and national rejoicing in celebration of the downfall of tyranny and the restoration of a solid and honourable peace, hath at length arrived. Never was there greater anxiety evinced by all classes of people, than to obtain a sight of the various branches of a- musements to take place on this happy occasion ; never was curiosity stretched to so high a pitch ; in a word, every face depicted the most aide r. t curiosity," blended with the most lively chearfuluess; and never was there Seen ( viewing the whole as a grand national fete) snch an assemblage of elegance and fashion, or such a display of general rejoicing. Such was the eagerness of the Public even yesterday, to view the Parks, that un immense concourse of spectators continued to flock thither throughout the whole of the day. Towards the evening the crowd was so great, that the dif- ferent entrances, and particularly that at HvdePark Corner, in Piccadilly, became almost impassable.— The various o? i- jects, however, which are so skilfully arranged to divide the attention of the Public, operated considerably to separate tbe populace when once within the railings of the entrances in question, and we are happy to say, that the whole of last Night passed off without any serious accident having oc- curred. To- day the town at an early hour evinced the greatest bustle and anxiety.— The morning was, however, ushered in by a heavy fall of rain, which occasioned a considerable degree of gloom, and seemed to threaten a serious disip pointment to the whole of the Metropolis; but as the day advanced the sun burst forth in all its wonted solendour, and seemed to mingle in the joyous festivities of the day — The rain, as it turned out, was most propitious, for it served to lay the dust ( which was very seriously felt in the coime of yesterday), and gaye a fragrance to the Parks which added much to the pleasure of the scene. Between 10 and 12 the different troops of horse arrived, for the purpose of taking the several stations which had been previously allot- ted lo them ; and soon afler this hour thousands of persons were seen faockhig to the Parks, anxious to obtain a; i earty admittance. An order was issued that no admittance should take, place to the Green Park and St. James's Parks till 2 o'clock : at that hour the several entrances were open- ed, and as the day advanced the public assembled around fall human affairs forbids us to be too j the bason in the Green Park; pa* t of the wall had been ' confident of its prosperous continuance. Much yet reman s to be done in Europe, and we have still one contest to maintain by war, a war which we can never consent to ter- minate but bv the establishment of our claims, according to the maxims of public law, and the maritime rights of this empire. - To provide for these branches ofthe public service has been our ust care., and the Bill which I have to present fo your Roy til M'ighiiess, is intituled.,-" A 11 Act for enabling his Majesty| to raise thc sum of three millions for the service purposely thrown down for the accommodation of the public. Tne Balloon, which was placed near- Buckingham House, at six o'clock appeared to be nearly sufficiently inflated to ascend, and the general expectation was excited ; it, how- ever, in about five minutes afterwards ascended, and rose in a most majestic form, and took a S. E direction over London; but as- it arose higher it bore a more easterly course, and apparently shaped its wav over the River Thames, aad will probably descend on ths - Essex side of the River. ...

One great thing to be done will be to have the river well- watched by day and by'night during the fence months ( August, September, and October!, as a heavy penally will he incurred by persons fishing during any of those months, besides the forfeitnie of the nets, & c.— We warn nil persons not lo use any nets or devices for fishing in the Severn during those months, a-- if ihey are detected an. l informations laid before the Hingis! trotes, the penalties will be inforced with the utmost rigour of the law Tbe great number of lieu now in the river compared wilh what were in the river two years ago, when the Associalioi • were first formed, will sufficiently shew t|„.

Staffordshire General Agricultural Society.— A numerous meeting of this Society was held in Stafford on Tuesday last. The sheep and cattle were shewn in a field near the town, nnd Ihe novelty of Ihc exhibition attracted much company Though the Merino sheep obtained the highest degree of notice, the shew altogether was very- superior — At Ihree o'clock a very large partv sat down to a sumptuous dinner at the Swan Inn. Earl Talbot, the> President ofthe Societv, was in the cilair ; Edward Rf'ount, Esq Vice- President.— The priz s were delivered to the suc- cessful candidates by the Noble President, whose unceasing: attentions, affable Report merit, thorough knowledge of agricultural subjects, Wn'd frequent and eloquent addresses to the company, afforded a constant and ever varying fund of amusement and information.

At the laic Somerset Sessions, Thomas Draper was brought up to receive further punishment as a rogue and vagabond. This is the fellow who gulled Ihe inhabitants of Bristol by bis impudent pretensions to cure all manner of disorders by virtue of his touch ! It is a lamentable fact, but il is nevertheless true, thousands uf persons flocked to his house, in the firm persuasion ol bis infallible skill. This mania among his followers attained a height which ii scarcely credible, when Ihe Magistrates, very much 10 their credit caused the Doctor to he apprehended and sent 10 Sheplou Mall, t gaol. The former conviction, however, having been made on paper instead of parchment, which is necessary for ulterior proceedings, the Doctor was luckily acquitted ! He had 110 sooner joined the expectant crowd of believers out ofrourt, than he told them thai Ihe defect iu the proceedings was dictated by God, who had thus happily restored him to their service I Frame- Breaking, Cruelly, and Robbery.— It 1? with the deepest regret we record three more instances of the disgraceful crime of frame- breaking, accompanied with wanton crneltv and robbery, 111 Ihe town aud neighbour- hood of Nottingham. Ill Ihe short space of iwo hours, on Tuesday night, seven frames ( live al Siieinton, and two in Trumpet- street, in Nottingham), were destroyed, apparent- lybythesame gang of ruffians, who- burglariously entered the respective dwelling- houses, and threatened the peace- able inhabitants wilh instant death, if they interposed ei ther resistance or alarm. The loss to the owners is esti- mated at several bundled pounds; and tliiee distinct rev, aids of £ 100 each, are offered for the apprehension of the daring offenders, who carr ed off a quantity of lace and other properly. On Tuesday morning a man called al the Eank of R. Fryer, F. sq Wolverhampton, and offered for discount a promissory note for purpoorling to he drawn by Job lliirion, and payable to the order of James Burton, sen at Messrs Csdailes' and Co. London: the bill bore several endorsements, Ihe lasl of which was " Stokes and Fletcher." He stated his name to be William Sheltou, which signature appealed immediately before that of Messrs, Stokes and Fletcher: upon being questioned, and perceiving that he was suspected of forgery, he got the note in his possession, anil tore it in pieces, He was, however, secured, and lodged in the house of correction. He proved to he Job Burton, ail inhabitant of Digbeth, Birmingham. Upon his person - were found several pawnbrokers' duplicates, one of which was for a gold watch and twosrals. A person entrusted with the receipt of taxes for the parish of St. Mary Magdalen, Taunton, absconded last week with nearly the sum of £ 4000. He occupied a large farm near that town, and was always considered as 1111 indus- trious and respectable man. He has left property thai will nearly cover his deficiency. The fall of grain, with the extent of land he rented at a long lease, it is supposed, induced his extraordinary conduct. On the 19th ult. Ihe following dreadful accident occurred at the Powder Mills of Mr. Laurence, ofBattlc, in Sussex. A quantity of powder exploded in the coming and drying- house, by w'hich the building and three men, who were at woik therein, were blown, comparatively, to atoms. The olher erections employed in the manufactory were but little damaged. In collecting the mangled remains of the unfortunate sufferers, named johu Sinder, Philip Man, and John Ehlridge, son the. heart of one of them was found entire, and quite detached from any olher part, of the body. They were all married men, and oue had worked in the mill upwards of 30 years. The concussion produced hy the explosion ( which no one can account for) was felt several jniles from the spot. Thunder Storms.— On Thursday afternoon and even- ing the town and neighbourhood of Nottingham were visited wilh the most awful lightning storm 111 remem- brance The flashes succeeded each other ( especially between nine anil ten at night) with such rapidity, as almost to form one continued blaze of the brightest stilenduur, illuminating Ihe whole atmosphere with unequalled subli- mity. The rain fell in torrents ; and in the afternoon a shower of hnil- stones fell for a few minutes, of uncommon size aud weight, which broke several windows, some of Ihe congealed masses being nearly four inches in circumfer- ence. There waa much thunder; and the heat for several Jays had been excessive. On Wednesday last, about three o'clock, an awful thunder storm, was experienced at Manchester, during which Ihe rain descended iu liquid volumes, and Ihe dread artillery of Ihe air exhibited its terrors in more than in one instance. An elderly woman at Douglas Green, Pendleton, was struck wilh the electric fluid, and found apparently lifeless, but on opening n vein, was happily restored to animation ; aud cow was killed near Manchester. The above tempest, 011 Thursday evening, raged with considerable violence in Ihe neighbourhood of Oxford, Birmingham, nnd other districts— Many sheep, and some cattle were destroyed bv the lightning in the neighbour- huoduf Lichfield.' At Leamington, during the height of the storm, a fire ball, accompanied with a tremendous peal of thunder and lightning, but providentially succeeded by a violent torrent of rain, fell into the Picture Gallery of Mr. Btssett, and in its progress forced the rafters from the roof into the centre ofthe room, leaving an aperture in the ceil- ing of 100 feet square. The doors of the room wercknocked down with considerable violence, several panes of glass were broken, aud Ihe interior arrangements were thrown into the utmost confusion. No very great damage however lias been done to the collection; a few paintings were rent nnd peeled from Ihe canvas, but the more valuable part fortunately escaped injury. The mason- work of Nelson's monument on the Cal- ton- hill, Edinburgh, is now finished.

DREADFUL EXPLOSION. Dresden, July 12 The explosion which happened at this place on the 27tli of June, was one of the most tremendous recorded in hstory, and has completed the misfortunes which this town has so long suffered. During the armistice of 1813, the French troops had constructed. Opposite the Black Gate of the New Town, an extensive bridgehead, which they tiamed the J'mperor's Entrenchment. They " had formed in Ihis • entrenchment a larire wooden fort and a spacious vault, where they deposited a great quantity of powder, which was given tip to us after the capitulation. The maga- zine contained above oue hundred thousand quintals of gunpowder, part in barrels, part in cartridges, shells, riirsl grenades. The guard of the magazine was en- trusted to Russian soldiers. On the 27th of June, a party ol Saxon artillery were to take away a certain quantity of this powder, and orders had been given to the labourers t » convey it off. Several Russian de- tachments were ' exercising with cartridges in the immediate vicinity. About half- past eight'o'clock, part of the wooden Tort blew up with such a dreadful report and c iitcussion, lhat the earth shook fo a great distance. The explosion crinlrtilsed about two minutes. A li the'men and cattle which happened to be within the circuit of a thousand pacesTrom the fort, fell victims to the calamitous event 5 and a Wtriber of persons were killed by the beams, palisades, and oilier frag- ments of the for1, while olhefs were severely hurt hy the cortriission of the air. The limbs of the unfortu- nate persons who were within ihe Vortex of the explosion were precipitated to an incredible distance. The shock had snch an effect upon the buildings of the New Town contiguous to the entrenchment, more es- pecially the church, that there did not remain a single square iff glass unbroken. The interior of the church, ai d Ihe college for Ihe Cadets, were also much damaged. The barracks, in which 2,800 Russians were quartered, were entirely demolished, and the troops had much difficulty in escaping to Ihe Old Town. The alarm produce 1 was greatly enhanced when it was known that the fire had caught at that part of the fort where Ihe greatest quantity of powder, cartridges, shells, grenades, & c. was deposited. It was neccessary to use the most prompt and effectual means of prevent- ing another explosion more terrible than Ihe first. A Councillor- of Male had- the presence of mind lo snatch up ar, ignited piece of wood, which, if suffered to remain an instant, would have produced general de- vastation. Tliey covered with earth and rubbish the vaults where the powder was deposited, and Heaven concurred in the means of s aving us from impending destruction. It began to rain about eight o'clock, and Continued She remainder of the day. In the Old Town even, upwards ofa thousand houses suffered very great damage, partly from the concussion, and partly from the shel s which struck them. Doors were carried off their hinges to the opposite side of Ihe Elbe; which gives some idea of Ihe explosion. It " was felt at Pima, which is four leagues from Dresden, and the window glasses were broken in nearly all the houses in the street leading to the castle. The number of the persons who have perished has not jet been ascertained. DESCRIPTION OF AN ORIENTAL MODE OF MUSCULAR EXERCISE. • By If. T,. Rate, Esq late I eclurer on Animated Nature, and the Philosophy of the Animal Economy at the Royal Institution. Shampooing is an expedien1 neither known nor understood in Ihis country, but generally used in India and the Levant as a luxury, often reso ted to as a remedy in very high estimation. The operation is per- formed by people regularly trained to the office, called Shampr o- men, and to be agreeable, must be done with art-; it consists in gently pressing and turning the body, rendered previously stipple and pliant by warm and vapour bathing ; lite Shampoo- man causes the follow- ing joints to crack without any trouble: the wrist, tiie elbow, liie shoulder, the vertebral of the neck and of the back, the instep, the knee, and the hip ; and he performs this task as if he were a perfect anatomist. When last in the Mediterranean, I saw and submitted to the operation, which was done in the usual manner ; to effect Ihe purpose in versil vertehrre, Ihe shampooing attendant was placed upon a low chair, and made the bather sit upon Ihe ground before it; putting Ihe knee 3gainst the ci ncave pari of the back, and laying hold of both shoulders, be suddenly pulled them backwards, and at the same lime gave the body an oblique sliding motion, which caused Ihe dorsal articulations to crack with Iwo distinct explosions, nearly similar to the re- port of a small pop- gun ; as Ihis was done with much exjertiiess, the sensations were singular, and for a mo- ment rather disagreeable'; the ' shampooing attendant beg in to knead the limbs— grasping, pounding, and gently squeezing the flesh with the whole hands, like so much dough, froiu the extremities tothe centre, thereby removing every sensation of pain, and concluded the business by putting on a camel hair glove, and by rub- bing the skin briskly, which took from il all the porous theromato. us obstructions, and rendered il as soft and smooth as satin. The sensations, after sleeping and ma- cerating a longtime ill warm water, and 11 gleam, after the | rocess of shampooing, are cerlainly very different from sensations ot weakness;— they are delightful ; for in the bath health is admitted at every pore, while liie latter process imparts : o every particular joint its ful; freedom and ail its latitude of motion ; the whole gives an ease, a pliabiiitv, a suppleness and an activity equally invigorating to Ihe tu nil and to the body, and may serve both lo correct the vulgar prejudice of the ' relaxing effects' of warm bathing, and to confirm the justtle sef the inference Ihe ancients drew of the mens sana in cor pore sano. Westminster National tree School.— Thursday, the 21st lilt, being appoint, d for the ceremony itf laying the first- stone of this building, for the instruction of 600 hoys and 400 girls, at 12 o'clock SOU boys and girls, from the Orchard- street School, attended. They were regaled 111 the Sessions- house, each v. ilh a bun and a cup of ale. The Duke of York, who was to lay the first stone, arrived about half past 12, and was received in the diuing room of the Sessions- house, by the Com- mittee and Vice- President ol the Institution; after which, they walked in the following procession : Four Beadles, in Liveries.

On coming to Ihe south east corner of the building, all the scholars » ere arranged round so as lo afford them a view ol the Ceremony ; Mr. luwood deposited the box of coin 111 Ihe lovier stone, and then aiiixed the plate over it, afler which the Rev. Mr. Grove, Chaplain to the Institution, said a very appropriate prayer; and Lord Sidmoulh add e- sed his Royal Highness in a neal speech, 011 Ihe national benefit expected to result from tiie Institution. His Royal Highness was then presented wilh Ihe liouel, when the slone was laid in the accus- lomary manner. Nearly all the cavalry of the Duke of Wellington's army, in number 7,000, have been disembarked in the Kentish ports, without the least accident. A number ol infantry battalions have been conveyed from Bout, deaux to Ireland, to relieve the English Militia Regiments coming home to be disembodied. Eonaparte.— The following letter contains some very interesting particulars relative to Bonaparte. We can scarcely girt rid of the idea, lhat we shall hear of tills man upon a larger slage than that which he now " frets his hour upon." " Genoa, Jane 22.— I left Spain in the Malta, 84, Admiral Hallow ell. who vervkindly gave me a birth in his cabin. As we ran along the French coast, we had the pleasure of seeing the white flag living 011 all the lowers. On the 89th of April, off Nice, we fell in vritli'the Undaunted frigate, Capt. Ush< r. with Bonaparte on hoard, bound to Elba. 1 certainly did not, when I left England, expect to meet with this gentleman at sea, boxed up in iBritish oak. 1 have talked with Lieut. Smith, who took him .011 bond. It vvas dark when he. got into the boat: he hurried to the beach armed with pistols and his sword : when he got to tlie boat he seemed out. of breath, and did not Speak a word till he reached the frigate, when be asked for tbe Captain ; he amused them much whilst 011 board, talked a great deal, and seemed thoroughly acquainted w til naval affairs. ' When any one cam-- on board he was always first at the gang way. Captain'Usher said to him, the Americans bave to thank you for their present war ; be • eplied. Yes, tbe rascals, 1 made a complete too! of them, but they deserve it all. He talked with great indifference of the late events ; and the only time he seemed in tbe least affected was when Colonel Campbell said, I am surprised your Majesty did not make peace at Prague ; he then put his hand to" his forehead, and said, Ab! it's all a dream, but instantly recovered himself. He said, he considered Pitt the greatest" man of the age ; a id speaking of the Duke of Wellington he said, heis the first Marshal of the day; not one of iny Generals had anv chance with him. 1 wished much, bad circumstances allowed me, to have fought him myself—( perhaps he would have caught a frost.) Lieutenant Smith observed to Count 13' rtram, that " Bonaparte was much stouter than when he Saw him last. Where did vou see him last ? said the Count. I was a prisoner, said Smith, with Capt. Wrisht, in the Temple. The Count turned 011 his heel, and no'more was said on that subject. Bonaparte talked con- tinually of Egypt, and oucc mentioned a prophecy which he applied to himself. The thbming aftet iris land ng at Elba, he rode to the top of a mountain, from whence be bad a distinct view of bis new dominions After looking round a few seconds, be burst into a violent lit of laughter, and de- scended. ' He gets up at foor o'clock, rides much, and often attends the tunny fishing. Usher is gone to Leghorn, I be- lieve to'carrv over the Empress to him. Bonaparte asked lion ( Id Sir E f> ellew was, and was told 52 : Aye, said he, he has 10 vears good w , rk i • him yet— Yon may rely upon it lie s too near Italy. I hope a sharp eye will be kept upon him. Such is hi-- knowledge of human nature, that he lias left the officers of the ship impressed with a much more favourable opinion of bim than he deserves.— When the Metope's boat went along- side, one of the Jacks sung out, why you've got Boney aboard.— Yes, said a sailor out of the ports, in the hearing of Nap—" We've got the d— I at last." Although Bonaparte pretends not to understand English, be smiled ivl en lie heard the expression." t aptain Manners.— The conduct of this noble hero, diir ng the late desperate engagement between Ihe Reindeer and Wasp, in which he gloriously fell, is the theme of universal praise. After having part of the calves of h. s legs carried away hy a cannon shot, he received another through both thighs, which made him sink, for two or three minutes, on his knees : but 110 entreaties could prevail on him to go below, and, recovering himself, he headed the boarders, w i h a full determination to master his antagonist or perish in the ai tempt. While climbing into the rigging, two balls from the Wasp's tops penetrated the top of his skull and came out beneath his chin. Placing his left hand lo his forehead, the other convulsively brandishing his sword, he exclaimed—" My God !" and dropped life- less on his own deck. The Reindeer was surrendered by the Captain's clerk, no individual of a higher degree being in a slale to execute Ihe melancholy office. We mentioned in our last, lhat one of the Reindeer's men was wounded in his head by a ramrod. About half of Ihe ramrod passed through his temples, and rema ned stationary. Before it could lis extricated, it became necessary to saw it off close to one of the temples The wounded man is in a fair way of doing well.— Plymouth ' telegraph. The Essex American frigate had on her colours, when she was brought to action, " Free ' trade and Sailors' Eights." When the Phoebe took her, they were hauled down, and a flag with the following motto was hoisted : " God und our Country, British Sailors' best Eights— Traitors offend both." Lord Cochrane, on receiving a letter from Ihe Chairman of tiie Committee appointed to conduct his re- election, returned an answer, of which the fo lowing is an extract:— » • Merely to be a Member of the House of Commons ( as now made up) is something t o meagre to he a gratification to me ; but when I reflect, that it is Sir Francis Burdett, whom the Citizens of Westminster have now, for the third time, made me the Colleague, how am I to express, on the one hand, my gtatitude towards them ; and on the other, ttie contempt which I feel fi r al! the distinctions ot birth, and all the wialth, and all the decorations, wb: ch Milli ters an- Kings have it, under the present system, iu their power to bestow ?— With regard to the case, the agitation of which ha- been ttie cause of this, to me, mo- t gratifying: result, I am in no apprehension as to tbe opinions and feelings of the world, and especially of the People of England ; who, though thev maybe occasionally misled, are never deliberately ciuel or unjust. Only let it be said of me— the Stork Exchange have accu- ed— Lord Ettenborouzh has charged for guilty— the Special Jury have found ibat guilt— the Cowt have sentenced tothe pillory— the House of Commons have expelled— and the Citzensof Westminster HAVS RE ELECTED,— only let this be tbe record placed against my name, and I shail be happv to stand in the Calendar of Criminals all the days of mv lite. 1 If the new doctrine of Trial by Jury becomes gene- rally adopted, it will certainly administer great consola- tion to persons who are so unfortunate as to be brought into Courts of Justice: for after being tried and convicted hy a Jury, they have nothing lo do but Iry and acquit themselves! Johanna Southcole.—" Our Readers have probably often heard of an impostor of the name of Johanna Southcote, a woman of about 70 years old, who has lately given out that she is pregnant with the true Messiah, and expects to lie in in a few weeks. Such nonsense as this would be utterly beneath our notice, had not a circumstance occurred within the last fort- night, most disgraceful to the age we live in. A cradle, formed of most expensive and magnificent materials, has heen bespoke, by a lady of fortune, for Mrs. South- cote's accouchement, and has been for some days ex- hibited at the warehouse of an eminent cabinetmaker, ' by whom it was constructed It is inscribed with texts of Scripture, most grossly and blasphemously perverted; and hundreds of genteel persons, of both sexes, princi- pally the female, have flocked to see this cradle, in which they believe the true Messiah is to be rocked.— Those who are silently deluded by impostors in religion we cannot probably controul; but when these impostors obtrude their schemes, be they folly or wickedness, in this public manner, it surely becomes the Magistrate to interfere, and to allot to them such apartments, either in Bridewell or Bedlam, as their respective shares in the conspiracy may be found to merit."— London Packet. dnecdote of Ihe Editor ofthe Edinburgh Review.— When Mr. Jeffery was in America, from whence he hasjust returned with a wife, hedined with Mr. Madison. " Pray, Mr. Jeffery ," said the first magistrate of ihe Uniled Slates, " may I ask yon, what your people say to Ihe war with us here, on this side the Atlantic J" The silence was profound, iu expectation of the inter- esting answer: it was 11s follows:—" If 1 recollect right, Sir, Ihere was a little ta k of it at Liverpool ; but I can't say it was spoken of in my hearing any vv here else !"

THE SPEAKER — " Major- Gen. Fane. It has been your for- tune to bear a most conspicuous part in the earliest and latest scenes of ihe Peninsular War; and now, having reconducted lie greatest part of the Briti- h Cavalry through France to, • Ms country, yon stand here to receive the Thanks of this House for the distinguished valour and conduct displayed by von at the decisive battle of OrtheS. Although the enemy was, on tbat occasion, strongly posted on a position of iiis own choice, yet he found it impossible to withstand the im- petuous valour of the allied army; but theconsummateGeneial, who theie commanded, determined that the retreat of the enemy should be turned tn his destruction ; and the Cavalry, under your command, effectually completed that destruction. Three times have you received the Thanks of your Country, for your valour and conduct in the battles ol Roleia, Coruuna, and in the haril- fought field of Talavera; and I have one more to convey to you the Ttiajsks of the Commons of Great Britain and Ireland, for your distinguished skill and bravery displayed in the battle of Ortbes." Major- Gen. FANE returned his Thanks for the distinguished honour which had just been conferred cn him. THANKS TO lone E. SOMERSET. The SPEAKER—" Maior- General Lord E. Somerset, your efforts have been much distinguished in the law Continental wars. In defiance of the insults aud menaces of a powerful and overbearing enemy, tb- aimv of Great Britain triumphed in asserting and renewing its former fame, and in vindicating tbe honour and character of the country. To take an eminent share in those deeds of glory, our nobility sent forth their sons to the tented field, where they bave shewn that I bey are worthy of enjoying that dignity which their ancestors first obtained by like deeds of valour. Among the rest you were conspicuous; and with your sword won honour and glory in those fields of France where your ancestors, of Royal alliance, bad long before fought and conquered. In return for which, I am commanded bv this House to convey to you the Thanks of the Commons of Great Britain and Ireland, for the skill and bravery displayed bv you at the battle of Oithes." Lord E. Sc MERSET said, he felt himself incapable, in ade- quate terms, to convey his thanks for the honour which had just been conferred on him ; but, commanding British troops, and being directed by the Duke of Wellington, it was im- possible fur him to bave failed in the duties entrusted to turn.

The evidence having been gone through, thf Jurv, aftera little consultation, returned a verdict, of ( Tit Uu — DEATH — The prisoner, a- soon as the Judge began to pronounce the awful sentence ot the law, fell overpowered, and some little time elapsed before he could be restoied ; when he arose, he addressed tbe Judge in a most pathetic manner ; stating, it wns not from anv fear of death thar he was over owered, but at tbe reflection of bis being stigmatized a5 a felon and a murderer; and hit hlstamilv of six children would now onlv behold him with abhorrence; tbat tie bad passed a long life in the service of tiis countiy. which he had done with honour and credit ; tbat he had intended his sons for tbe satne profession, but no, v his hopes were blasted, life rendered insupportable to him, anu his future destiny indif- fereut ; that his mind prompted bim to say much more, but - list his feelings would not allow of its utterance. The Judce hen observt d, he appeared fully sensible of al! that he cou'd sav to bim on tbe subject, and should therefore onlv proceed ' o pass ttie sentence of tire law upon him — No bill was found aaainst the Seconds in this unfortunate affair. Execution respited til! Saturday, Aligns' 27 At the late Quarter Sessions for Staffordshire, the following was ihe only appeal of auy interest:— STOKE ON TRENT, AND LFIGH— A derivative settle- ment from Ibe great grandmother lo ibe present pauper's falltei was shewn in tbe appellant parish, but they relied on the father's having purchased land at Lane End, for £ 14, or £' 15. on which he expended about • Sl.' O, in building a house; the Court were of opinion, on the authority ef King against Dunchitrcli, that the purchase money being under i' 30, whatever was afierw& rds laid out would not take the case out of the statute— The great grand mother had granted premises in Leigh to her second won, the grand father of the pauper, hut it was contended she bad no title in the premises, and w as only dowable ; the premises had been held under tiiis tiile from 1782. The Court adjudged it lo be a good settlement. A cast: of considerable importance lately came before the Court of King's Bench. The question was, whether persons letting out or hiring horses to draw a hearse at a funeral, were liable to tbe Post Horse Duties. Tbe Court, after solemn argument, determined tbey were not liable ; but that the Duties were c( tiifined to birings, and carriages for the purpose of conveying Travellers only, and not to carriages employed in drawing burthens-, in which respect Hearses could not be distinguished from the usual hiring of common waggons and carts. In the Court of Chancery on Monday, a motion was made to reltx the rigour of a rule of Court, the strict observance of which wool I be attended with ruinous expence. A bill had been filed in behalf of an infant against the executors ofhis father, a mercantile man; and in strictness the rule above alluded to would require the w hole of he father's books to be transcribed into the answer, which would extend it to the number of 900,000 folio sheets, and require toe payment of ^ 30,000 in stamp duties. The Lord Chancellor granted the motion, allowing eStracts only to be taken. Mr. Clark, maltster; of- Stock, who had been lately fined £ 100, under a conviction before the Ma^ is rales, for an over increase in the couch, appealed against Ihis conviction to the last Quarter Sessions at Chelmsford j when it appeared, that tiie Officer of Excise caused part only of the bailev to be thrown out of the couch ; and, in returning it back again, discovered that the in- crease was four bushels more than legal. But in Mr. Clark's defence, it was proved, that the Officer did not em/ ity the conch, which the Act directs, and the con- viction was from such neglect, quashed. Com Laws.— Lord Stanhope made his promised motion on this subject in the House of Lords on Monday, by proposing a resolution, in substance as follows:—" That it is essential to the comfort and happiness ofthe people, that food should he abundant anil reasonable ; that, for this purpose, every encou- ragement should be given to the corn- growers of the United Empire; and that the host mode ot doing this will be, by taking off such of the taxes as bear pecu- liarly on ttie corn- growers, and can be taken off without injury to the slaie."— The previous question was carried without a division. HOUSE OF LORDS, WEDNESDAY, JULY 27. PEACE PRESERVATION BII. L. Lord SIPMOUTH rose, on the oid. er for the second reading of this bill, and said, it was a painful duty to be under the necessity of coming to their lord- hips with this bill, appli cable toceitain disturbed parts of Ireland, and lo recommend steps which were absolutely necessary to be taken bv the exe- cutive government of Ireland, The bill which was to be read a second time vvas of a different description from one brought in some years since. In cases of felouv a ne-. v mode of trial would take place. The power g, ven by the bill would be a- ked only under a conviction of the necessity of it. His lordship was convinced it would be adopted. There was not an ind vicinal acquainted with the state of Ireland that would denv it was in such a state, as to call fur the immediate protec- tion of government. When this subject was dis'ou- sed in an- other place it was stated that the bill was indispensable Ii was urged, that trial by juty might be affected by it, but that it was necessary not one would deny. The disorders he had adverted to were not those produced bv want of civiliz itton, riots at fairs, or that sort of disturbance which does not war- rant any extraordinary proceeding, but from deep combina- tions, united by oaths of the most solemn kind among the lower ordeis of people, having objects to accomplish of the most mischievous description. The mo- t lamentable outrages led atrocities had been perpet- ated. Torture frequently was committed, and murder most unnatural. The body of evi- dence which had reached government, if seeo bv their lord- ships, would shock the miud, arid wound their feelings. In the counties of Kildare, Westmeath, Queen'sCounty, Tippe- rarv, and other districts, these acts bad been perpetrated in a way which would be disgraceful to the inhabitants for ages His lordship said, be would by tV3y of specimen extract a case from th « common cations. Iu November last ihe ma- gistral es of Westmeath met for tbe purpose of considering the disturbed state of the country, and reported to tbe Lord Lieu- tenant that crimes bad inr reased lo such an extent that assas- sination was committed in the open day, in a place of woi ship, tief ae a t. umeious congregation, not one of whom attempted to seize the assassin. They further reported that the 47th of the King was not sufficient to protect the inhabitants & punish the offenders. This report was Signed by Lord VVestmeath, otber n bis. oen of the county, and forty Magistrates. A man who bad given evidence in a case of murder was assassinated nearly in the way the murder of Mr. Horafall was perpe trated. Tbe murder he had discovered was committed by nine persons delegated by three villages lo murder the object ef their dislike. These persons were selected by lot, and one was appointed to give tire bio ® . They were seized, tried, condemned, and executed. The man who gave the infor- mation was requested, by those who were anxious to save bis life, not lo leave a place of security in which he was pio- teeted, Lord Castl, main desired him not to go home; but regardless oi advice, be went home, and wi; h bis ivife, was soon afier inuidered. The repo t further stated, lhat in Maich last, six were convicted of n urder and executed, and seven convicti d of taking unlawful oaths. Tbe magistrates having taken into consideration tlie acts committid in those counties, felt it a duty to lay before the government their unanimous opinion, tbat in order to suppress those; disgrace- ul crimes, a law, stronger than the provisions of the 47th of tile K'lig, was absolutely necessary. Oil the 15th of March, a ' etter was received from Westmeath, stating that a party ol depredators had commenced an attack on the houses, during the assises, and that an escort from Dublin was necessary for ( heir protection. The coble Viscount stated, among other (' acts, tbe oathstahe. il by several unlawful meetings, as pioved at Ihe spring assize in 181 I. It was in substance—" I, A. ft. io solemnly - wear, that I will suffei death before I will turn nf rmer. That 1 will pursue any person who will turn informer till be is hanged, drowned, or put in the ground, de d or alive. That I will hear no accusation against, my companions. Thai. 1 will attend the Committee when called on, and assist the French when they land in Ireland,"— I'he above was before tlie peace, but, at the termination of ' he war, another oath had been unlawfully administered, wherein tbe party swears to assist in m emiruing the Govern- ment, destroy informers, ond resist tithes and taxes. Lord Sidmooth here stated tbe pertinbed state ofthe country, ami described the provisions of the bill. It was founded, lie said, on a draft made* bv ttie Dujie of Wellington, while be wr. s Secretary for Ireland. It might be asked why this was not brought forward. sooner; it had been withheld, frotsi reluc- tance to adopt it. He had joined in that reluctance, under the expectation that peace would have precluded ihe measure, but tbe hope had beep frustrated, and he did not teel that be should have done bis duty had he neglected any longer to provide for the protection of tne well disposed inhabitants of Ireland. His loidship concluded by moving the second read- ing.— The bill was read a second lime, and committed for to- uiortow. EVERY MAN' HIS OWN DOCTOR.

I made application to a professional Gentleman there, uuder whose Care I continued for a considerable time, without ex- periencing any Relief whatever, but, on tbe contrary, I fund myself grow worse and worse, till at length I was re- duced to a melancholy Situation indeed, by the internal and external Use of Mercury. Hopeless of receiving any Beneijt, and having both my Constitution and my Patience nearly- worn out, I gave up all Hopes of being cured by Mercurial Preparations, which only exhausted my Frame, with iut in the least Degree abating the Virulence of the Disorder, which by tnisjime vvas arrived to an alarming Pitch inde- d. ! took the Resolution of returning to my Home near Whit- church, and seeking Relief elsewhere. I put myself under the Care of another Gentleman of the Profession, w| jogav# me some Relief, aud as I thought cured me; but after some time, the Disorder broke out with greater Violeuce than ever, and my Condition nearly reduced ma to Despondency. Hav- ing no Hopes from the Faculty, who had entirely failed in their Effirts to eradicate the Disorder, it was now that I found Dr. Smith's Bills of " Comfort to the Afflcted," aud determined on giving it a Trial; I bought a b ittle of Mr. Jones, P rinter, Whitchurch, On the third Day of taking it, 1 found wonderful Alteration forthe better, and before I had finished the first Bottle, 1 had the cheering Prospect before me of being at last cured of this afflicting Disorder, and belore 1 had finished the third Bottle, I fo ind myself in a Situation far different from what I was when I left Wei - litigton ; 1 had now comt'orta. bIe Sleep at Night, my Spirits re. turned, aud my health vvas completely re- established.— Thus by taking the inestimable Ploughman's Diops, was 1 rescued from the Grave, and a State bordering on Despair.

SIR, Mexcca ll."- mdi: r. Lyme, & th May, 1813. IljTtOM the very extraordinary Cures in this neighbourhood, which your Antiscorbutic Drops have succeeded to effect, when eveiy effort of tbe faculty has proved ineffectual; amongst tbe many, tbe following I hope you will publish for the benefit of those labouring under similar afflictions. My wife, many years a^ o, over- heated herself while brewing, and in that, state drank a quantity of Cold water. She became much indisposed, and shortly after a tetter broke out u. ion her hands; and in time spread over the whole of her arms-, which became covered witii scaly substances, attended with a watery discharge, with itching and smarting so violent, that, to use ber own words, she could have scraped herself witb a knile. One of the medical gentlemen to whom she applied, at length made a temporary cure, but her cum plaint relume,/ with redoubled violence, so tbat tbe skin of her hands came entirely off four or- five different times; her legs were now covered with ulcers, the itching and smaiting became into- lerable ; ex iess of ,- ifH ction made her hie a burden ; she was so reduced that I. bad to dress, undress, and feed her. The most eminent of the faculty were in vain employed, and by whom hereasowas considered hopeless; in ttii9 deplorable state, providentially a paper was put into my hands contain- ing a cure bearing some similarity to liei's; a small bottle of your Drops was immediately purchased, by taking which she found much benefit, and, thank God, by perseverance, a complete cure has been effected ; she lias, however, since taken one small bottle every spring and autumn, and enjoys good health. 1 beg also to mention the cure ol my niece, a child of about four years of age, w ho was violently afflicted with a scofuloos complaint in her face aud about her ear, from which an ichorous matter issued, till the fleshy part of one side of her face was neatly wasted away ; a single bottle of tbe Drops, in this case, effected a cure. Any enquiry per- sonally, or by letter ( post- paid) to Mr. Charles Cheater, Bookseller, or at my bouse, No. 80, Hick- Street, Newcastle- uuder- Lynie, will be duly attended to, by Sir, Your obedient and obliged humble Servants, Witness, / JAMES WHITTAKER, Charles Chester, Booksellet.
