Although our troops behaved with their accustomed gallantry, it ismost distressing to see our brave men, from the unavoidable nature of the service, forced to contend wilh such overwhelming odds. However, we derive some consolation from the thought that the enemy will be soon deprived of the only advantage he possesses. It was indeed impracticable to reinforce sooner the small and gallant band, who, for these Iwo years, and under very discouraging circumstances, have so nobly supported ihe honour antl reputation of Iheir country. It is difficult lo praise their services ade- quately. Their defence of Canada reflects upon them immortal lustre ; and we hope it will be soon our task lo Commemorate achievements worthy of their valour and zeal in the cause. The Americans have been hitherto the aggressors; they could, from Iheir vast superiority of numbers, select the point of attack 5 and from their vicinity lo their resources, chtise the proper moment. The tide of invasion flowed hitherto upon Canada ; but the stream will soon revert, and the ter- ritory of the enemy be the scene of hostilities.— The American Papers shew that the enemy do not rely with implicit confidence on a friendly issue to the negoci- alions. Their renewed attack on the Niagara frontier, together with the activity of their preparations on every side, amply demonstrate that, though the ex- traordinary changes in Europe may have surprised the war party, they have had by no means the ex- pected effect of lowering their arrogance, or moder- ating their hostility. * ist Royal Scols, 500; ist Batt.

In the Chamber of Deputies on the 4th instant, M. Payfere de Cere staled al length the grounds of his proposition, in support of the free exportation of cer- tain French productions. He said, that Ihe King's decree of the 26th ultimo, relative lo the exportation of grain, had done every tiling that was proper 011 that subject. He dwelt much upon the unfavourable situation of the proprietors of flocks in the Depart- ments, and stated, that for wool, which was expected tn bring from 36 lo 40 sous the pound, nol more than 20 or 25 could be got. The same depreciation was experienced in « iiie, brandy, and other article-! j he therefore proposed the project of a law for allowing the exportation eif corn, merinos, wool, wine, & c. under certain specified dutiei— for encouraging bv premiums fhe exportation of wine and brandy, and other purposes. The motion was almost unanimously taken into consideration, and the speech ordered to be printed, A motion of a nature somewhat similar, proposing to authorise the free exportation ( if corn in the months of August, September, and October, was made by M. Galissontiierc, but the consideration of it was ordered to be adjourned.

Three companies of artillery, commanded by Lieut.- Colonel Dickson, and Maj , rs Jones and Monro, are ordered lo hold them selves in immediate readiness to embark for America and are to rendezvous at the Cove of Cork, by the I si of September, trom which place Lord Hill will sail. All the transports recently advertised for are also in tended to convey troops to America, under his lord ship's command. The Phoenix, Capl.

Last night arrived Paris Journals of Friday last, and this morning those of Saturday.— The French Marshals are organising and reviewing the troops in all parts of the kingdom, and the Government, desirous of being freed from the presence of so many military persons in Paris, has given them notice, that their regiments, being now properly constituted, require their personal assist- ance.— The French Officers of the Navy not on service are to be allowed to engage in commercial navigation. The harvest has commented in France, with every prospect of luxuriance ; the bearded wheat is generally a great crop. The Pope has created Lucien Bonaparte a Roman Prince and Duke of Musignano; the Pope has also condescended to accept the dedication of the poem of Charlemagne, which is to appear in the course of next Jaim - ry.— It is said that Napoleon's sister, the Princess Pauline Borghese, is coming to England 1 An article in these papers, from Leipsic, states that the King of Saxony, previous to the late campaigns, first pretended to j oin the Allies, hilt having obtained from Austria the secret of her plans, he then joined Bonaparte, and helraved those plans to liiiu. The Directors of the Hamburgh Bank are slated to have received assurances from General Girard, that Ihe French Government would make good the loss its funds sustained by the robbery of Davoust, By ihe Hamburgh mail of last night, it is said negociations with Prince Christian of Norway have been resumed, and that he now lias even offered to give up two fortresses to Sweden, as the price of a three months' armistice. It is believed, however, that he only wishes to delay by thi » measure, till the season for military operations be elapsed. with an American privateer, which sheered off on her bearing down lo engage. Yesterday, before eight o'clock in the morning, three battalions of guards marched over Westminster Bridge on their way to Holland, where they are to relieve the old men of the British Guards, who are to return to England and be paid off. Several detachments which left France about sixteen days since, marched into town during the forenoon. Another draft will leave Loudon this day, and more to morrow. The hand of Ihe Horse Guards ( Blue), which has so long been one of the distinctions of that ancient regi- ment, is about to be reduce!. The expence of it appears to have exceeded £ 900 a- year, which was chiefly paid by the Colonel, and the Duke of Welling- ton does not feel the necessity of burthening his private fortune with ail expenditure which adds nothing to the strength of the corps. We understand that the quantity of lea brought by the China fleet amounts to 22,000, OOOlbs. weight. The pilchard fishery has commenced on the Cornish coast, hut the catches have hitherto been small. About 39 hogsheads of pilchards were caught in Whitsand Bay, 011 Wednesday last, by the boats from Looe, where five scans, ably maimed, are nearly ready. Grand Jubilee.— A kind of Fair having been kept in Hyde Park since Monday se'unight, notice was gives 011 Saturday for its discontinuance; the Bishop of Lon- don having complained of the nocturnal dissipation which it produced, and of the further evil and immoral consequences likely to res dt from its continuance, by c. ausing the violation of the Sabbath. But, in conse- quence of the large supplies of provisions on hand, the dealers in eating and drinking were, it is understood, permitted to sell off their stock. On Monday, how- ever, the whole army of tipplers, jugglers, publicans, show- men, and stall- keepers, were forced to retreat and carry off hags and baggage. They had petitioned Lord Sidmouth to remain in statu quo till after the Prince Regent's birth- day ; but being refused, 011 the ground that the time appropriated to the Jubilee had expired, they indicated a spirit of resistance and dis- satisfaction. The money getting part went further, and refused to debainp; in consequence of which, the Magistrates sent their posse comitatis to remove thein. The tents were struck in St. James's Park during the day, and towards night both Parks Were nearly clear of lumber.— The ground has been so much defaced ill the Parks by the crowd, anil slill more by the erections, and the driving in of the posts and fences for their security, that another season must elapse before their smoothness and verdure can be restored.

It will he recollected that about three months since, the Sieur Maubreoil, wilh some nefarious assistants, attacked the coach of the ci- denuni Hueen of West- phalia, and stole from thence variables to the amount of many mi lions, particularly jeweU. M mbreilil and his accomplices were arrested, hut t ey succeeded in secreting the greater part of Iheir rich capture. Ac. cidentally these jewels were lately discovered in the Seine, opposite the Invalides. For the last two < 1 lys persons were employed in getting them up from lha bottom of the river. A picket of gendarmerie were posted on the quay to prevent Ihe too near approach of the crowds a Ira c led by this wonderful fishery. It is hoped the active vigilance of the police will succeed in recovering Ihe whole of the stolen jewels, which Ihey are e. igei1 lo restore to the lawful owner.— Mor. iltur. Execution.— Monday sennight, Mary Cook wa » executed at Dorchester, for the murder of an illegiti- mate child she haj hy a married man with three chil. dren. When brought to the scaffold, she appeared penitent, and snid she died happy, and with a full assurance of pardon for her offence against the laws of God and the country. She lifted up her hands as well as she could, aud exclaimed, " Good people, take warning by my fate— take warning, lake wurnin; J" She wa? a fine young woman, and her fate made » great impresjiua.

The last intelligence from B- r elona; by tiie way of Par s, states, that the equi- page of.

The editor of the Tribune. of ( bp Cortes, who recently arrived ill this country from Lisbon, had a mosl difficult escape from Cadiz lo the Portuguese c pilal. He was every where pursued by the agents of Government, acting, il is said, under a special order from the King. He put on peasant's apparel, and oiled his face, in order to avoid de ection. A Dutch mail has arrived, with papers to the 7th instant. The expected union of Belgium to Ihe Seven ' United . Provinces has excited an en husiasm of joy at Brussels. That ci'y appears to have already resumed nil ils former gaiety and attraction for foreigners. Mar- shal Blncher arHved al Brunswick on the 23d nit., and so great was the public curiosity to sec him, lhat lite people placed ladders against the wall of his hotel, Which they ascended, in expectation of getting a peep nl him through the windows. Saturday the Duke of Wellington, after reviewing and dining with his regiment, Ihe Oxfoid Blues, had a narrow escape from a serious accident. In driving t'irough Brentford, about nine o'clock the same evening, the linch- pin came out of Ihe fore wheel of his chaise, by which Ihe carriage was nearly upset. His Grace was pi t feeding lo town in great haste lo be present at the wedding of a relative, and expressed much anxiety lo irei forward, but il unfortunately happened that an- other conveyance was not to lie procured. In conse- quence of tills, he was detained till the damage was repaired ; when it was Willi great difficulty tiiat he Copld prevail on the populace lo relinquish their desire of drawing him to town. The Duchess of Wellington, in a travelling chariot and six, the servants, & c. attended by some of the Royal Horse Guards ( Blue), It'll town yesterday morn- ing for Dover, oit her way to Paris. A rumour is now prevalent, Dial the Duke of Wellington is not to remain any length of lime Am- bassador at Paris, but is lo be succeeded hy Marquis Wellesley, wh n nil arrangement will be made for giving the Duke a seat in Ihe Cabinet and the Ordnance Department. On Monday Lord Casllereagh will leave town on his embassy to the Congress at Vienna. His lordship w ill go llirotigh Paris. Lady Castlereagh will accompany his lordship. Yesterday, a few minutes before one o'clock, his Jioyal Highness thc Duke de Herri arrived in London ; lie travelled in a carriage and six; the carriage had the lloyal t rench arms in gold. His carriage vas followed by another of a similar description, and six horses with his llojal Highness's full sti le. These carriages were followed by two Hartford post- chaises, with domestics. There we e three out- riders, with the French lloyal liveries of dark green and gold lace. Thc other livery servants rode on the dickies. In Ihe evening his Royal D'ght ess had an audience of Ihe Prince Resent. It is said, the great object of the Dtikcde Bern's visit lo England is to invite the Prince Regent to visit. Paris; and he is charged by his Majesty Louis XVIII. with llic most earn, si invitation to that effect. The Coro nation would be fixed to accommodate the time of his lloyal Highness. Extract ol a letter f om Worthing, daled August 9;— " A great ciowd assembled here on tlie Steine, at four o'clock, to witness the departure of the Princess of Wales, ill the Jason frigate, which layoff Worthing since Satur- day She airived at Ihe Steine Hold at half past four, when Ibe Hon Capt King not bring ready to receive her on her arrival, she drove off wilh Lady Charlotte l. indsay, another lad\, and the protegee boy, lo South Lancing, which is about two miles fiom Worthing, apparently wish- ing to ( dude I he people who were wait ing lo -. ee her em bat k.

Tiie Gazette of this evening contains a dispatch from Sir J C Sherbrooke, transmitting an account of Ihc surrender of Moose Island, lo a detachment of troops . under Lieutenant- Colonel Pilkiuglon, assisted hv Captain T M. Hardy, in the Ramilies; and of the subsequent occupation of all Ihe Islands in tiie Passaniaqitoddy Bay. A part ofthe 40th legiment of Ameiican infantry, consist- ing of about six officers and eighty men, under the com- mand of Major Pilliunn, were made piisouers of war. In a dispatch from Sir A. Cochrane are enumerated several American vessels captutedand destroyed by the Squadron . under his orders. Tbe ( lazlte I ill en ise contains a Letter from I iciitenaul Colonel Adams, commanding the Fast India Company's troops in Re. vah, Bengal, detailing ihe successful result of a gallant and well pl umed attack on the Ghurree of Enttluree, where Saruaid - Siug, an insurgent Chief, bad laken post with his troops— Captain Lindesaj, 2d bat. loth N. !.; and Captain Meredith and Ensign Maiden, ist hat. 91I1 N. 1. were wounded. Last night the Paris Journals of Monday arrived, anil litis morning those of Tuesday,— The Debates on the Liberty of the I'tess continue, and engage much attention at Paris The advocates for its freedom undoubtedly have Ihe advantage in argument • first principles and general reasoning are on their side; bul. the circumstances of the case are as undoubtedly against them. France is in too high a fever to bear such a stimulus. The manner in which the laws re- s'rmn the Press in England is evidently not understood at Paris. The advocates for the Censorship speak at a great disadvantage. It is the character and piesent t striper of the French people which fender free printii g i iipriideut, but this is an objection which cannot lie openly urged. The French papers by the mail of this morning are j to the date of the day before yesterday, and with them j we have private accounts of a very satisfactory nature, i at far as relates to Ihe tranquility of thecountr'y. The funds, which had risen to upwards of 70, indicated Ihe perfect confidence of the nionicd interest in the mea- I s ir" » a "' tienliaoetice of the new authorities. Dispatches have been this morning obtained from , Lord Gaijibijr. The firs! - meeting with the American Commissioners was held tin Monday last, which was for the purpose of exhibiting the credentials, and 111 other resopcts lie interview was merely complimentary. A subs quent assemblage ot t e respective Plenipotenti- aries took place, it is understood, 011 Wednesday, when some- political observations on Ihe interests of the respective Governments were . interchanged, bill the discussions ^ ere too genera: to allow of any calculation on the. probab'e result ot the negotiation.— Another meeting v. as to be held, it is said, on the succeeding Friday ( yesterday) anil Ministers are in Ihe ( nil expec- tation ofitcqtiirinjffurlher dispatches, ofa less indecisive character, in the course of Monday. Dispatches were yesterday received from Norway at Ihe Foreign Office It is reported that they contain a solemn appeal on the part of Christian Frederick, King of Norway, to his Royal Highness the Prince Regent, imploring his interposition for the independents of his new kingdom ; hut at the s'nlie time communicating his determination to risk every danger, rather than ah '. ndoti lite people by whose choice he has been raised to Ihe throne. Boston and New York papers, received to the 12th, contain an order from Ihe war department to the different governors of the I'nited States, to organise and hold in readiness for immediate service a corps of 93,500 men, for Ihe purpose of strengthening the line of the Atlantic. This order is issued, as the circular states, in consequence of the lale pacification in Europe affording to Ihe English a large disposable force, both navaland military, and with it the means of giving to thenar in that country, a charaacttr of new and in- creased activity and extent. The division of lite ships composing the Scheldt Fleet between France and Holland, took place on the 5th inst. ' I he latter have received for tlieir share— The Charlemagne, Caesar, Tilsit, Auguste, Dautztc, Putnlsk, Friedland, and the brig Sapenr. These sltii s were immediately left by the French, antl, with all belonging to Ihem, delivered to the Com- missioners of the High Allied Powers, ' the Orange flag was thereupon hoisted on board these ships instead of the French. Preparations continue with great activity for Lord HiiCs expedilion, which, il is said, will consist of 20,000 men ; the bulk of the expedition will sail from Portsmouth to Cork; but the .\ hole will finally sail from the latter - place wiih his lordship. The Leeward Island Fleet have arrived safe in llie Channel. His Majesty's ship Hannibal passed Ports- mouth yesterday, with 170 sail under convoy; his Majesty's ship Ainarautlie has proceeded with that part of the fleei intended for Ireland, and his Majesty's ship Port Mahon has arrived at Portsmouth after seeing the Bristol ships well up that Channel. The Liverpool letters received to- day, meution, lhat between 40 and 50 sail have arrived in lhat port. Islands in Passamaquoddy Bay.— Moose Island and the other Islands in Passainuqtioddy Bay, of which the Americans have been dispossessed, were originally included within the limits of tiie province of Nova Scotia, and since lite erection of New Brunswick into a separate government have formed a part ofthe hitter province. Individuals from the American boundary have from time to time established themselves on these Islands, and by degrees extended their usurpations; 11 nt il the Americans, actuated by a constant spirit of encroachment, and encouraged by our forbearance, proceeded lo form a military post 011 Moose Island, and lo dispute our claim to it. Our occupation of the Islands in Passamaquoddy Bay will deprive the Ameri- cans of the facility of carrying on an extensive and profitable illicit traffic, prejudicial to the interests Of this country. The Prince Regent's Birth- day.— We have no period, in our history so replete with national honour, and public advantage, as Ihe 12 months since Ihe I2lh nf August. 1813. The slightest rnirospoclinn ic suf- ficient to prove the truth of this assertion, and call forth war fa respect for a British Prince, whose efforts have been uniformly directed to the public good. At an early hour Ihe bel s rang many merry peals; flags were distended on the steeples; aud the usual prepara- tions were made in Ihe public offices to give clat to the anniversary. At one o'clock the Park guns fire!, and in the evening the town was brilliantly illuminated. The Parks.— An unauthorized rei oi l of an intended grand display of fireworks in St James's Park last evening, iu honour of lhe Priuce Regent's birth- day having bten circulated in Ihe early part of Ihis Week, the inhabitants of the metropolis proceeded there yesterday evening in great numbers. Tbe multitude continued flocking towards the Park till past eleven o'clock. 111 vain, however, did fancy anticipate the beauty of tlie spectacle; not a spark, save I he usual lamps of heaven, were to lie discovere 1 ; and the confusion, caused by the pressure of those returning against the personR of those endeavouring to force tlieir way on- ward, was almost beyond precedent At eleven o'clock a mob collected in the Green Park, composed, perhaps, of all Ihc disorderly characters in London, acting in the spirit Of mischief, pulled down the fence outside theTempIc iu- clostlre, and made a bonfire. lu consequence oflhe immense number of persons col l> cted, t lie sent li s found it impossible to oppose their depredations, ll was not deemed necessary to resort lo a proper force in order to compel them to desist*, as in all probability many with Iheir lives would have paid for their misconduct, had they been treated as rioters Finding a forbearance, they went on with impunity, and piled up Ihe idlings until a volume of flame arose, which alarmed the metropolis al ils eastern extremity. Many supposed a number of houses were ou fire, and Ihe engines drove through Ihc Park, under a belief thai St James's Palace was in flames. The multitude, with a disregard of propriety, proceeded until they had burnt nearly all the fences : sentry boxes and branches of trees were throw u in 1 be Humes, and considerable apprehensions were entertained for the fate ofthe Temple, which was menaced, with Ihe other range of building bearing the name of ibe Military OtHrcs At two o'clock tbe Temple remained safe, sur- rounded by sentinels, and, il is believed, tbe mischief done iloes not extend beyond Ihe destruction of the timber which formed the railway. The mob left the Park when daylight appeared- Several are iu custody. Mitchell, the Murderer.— Taunton and. Atkins, two of tlieofliccrs belonging to Ihe Public Oriice, Bow- street, arrived in town this morning from Salishui y, with M itrliell' the alleged murderer of Miss VVelchnian, in Iheir cu-. todv heavily ironed. He was immediately lodged at the Brown Bear, and conducted this day al noon, lo the office for examination. Several persons were sent for lo the house where llie murder was committed, who have identified tbe person of Ibe prisoner The examination concluded in less than 1111 hour, when he was fully committed for trial. Thc last inte. llige. nce received, from Ghent, as far as eonid be k . own, being of a pacific tV. i'iire, has caused some depression . in I he. i, tvai. kels for Anit'j n au, produce, particu- larlyin the . irtii IV ut'.

One hundred and thirty- seven voted for the plan recommended hy 4he Go. vernment, and eighty againsi il. l u t he course of the debate some very just compliments were paid tothe PrinCe Regent of England, and Ihe practical freedom of this country. VVe are happy to state, that by the latest advices received from France, Che. rbo. nrgh continued iu a perfect slate of tranquillity; some of the ring leaders of the riot, which took place on the Sunday, were sent to Paris ; the remainder that were arrested continue in confinement at Cherbourgh. The first day after the imprisonment of ihe rioters, a trifling at tempt was made to liberate them, but the soldiers manifesting h determination to do their duty^ were sufficient to deter the mob from persevering in the. r designs. It now appears that isi the last Peace with . America, it was stipulated 011 the part of the Government of tie United States, that they would build 110 ships of war of equal rate with our seventy- fours. SHREWSBURY, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 17.

RE AND HILL ; Whitchurch, August 11. On Saturday, the 6th instant, this town exhibited a scene of joy and hilarity, superior to any display of the kind which ever look . place in this or any other part of the king- dom ; iu every street triumphal arches were erected for the profession to pass under. In the centre of the grand arch, in the principal street, there was a most excellent crown, with the letters G. R. in gold. The houses were most beautifully decorated with a profusion of laurel, flowers, aud appropriate devices. Soxm after eleven o'clock the company began to assemble on the lawn of , W. Turner, Esq. to join in an elegant fete- champe. tre, given by that gentleman in honour of Ihe occa- sion. At half past eleven dancing commenced, and shortly after twelve tne numerous company sat down to a public breakfast , After, this repast, dancing recommenced, and continued till two o'clock; at which lime a large party of. ladies retired, to dine ( by invitation) at the house ofVVm. Wicksteed, Esq tiie worthy magistrate of the town. At three o'clock the arrival of Lord Cornhermcre was announced. He drove to the house of Joseph Hassall, Esq. ban kef, where Lady Combermere and Lady Crewe, who accompanied him, got out of ihe carriage ; which, proceeded w? tH his lordship along the Hawkstone road lo meet Lord Hi! l On his departure, the procession, which had been previously formed and arranged, began to move to meet their lordships, and escort them itito the town. It halted at theehd ofthe town, and in a few minutes t he carriages of the two noblemen approached— Lord Combermere on the right and Lord Hill on the left, in which manner they ascended a car prepared and appropriately decorated for the occasion. On being seated, M r. Wicksteed addressed them, uncovered.— He thanked them for ihe honour dune to the town of Whitchurch by their attendance on lhat day ; and said—" My Lords, we have no corporate body to receive you in procession; we have no recorder to address you; nor have we any civic honours to bestow upon you ; but, my lords, in the name of your neighbours, the Inhabitants of Whitchurch, 1 greet you with a hearty Welcome, and entreat your lordships to accept our humble endeavour Jo entertain you, with your usual complacency ; and what onr entertainment may want in splendour, I trust will he amplv recompensed by the cordiality with which you are received." — Al the, close of this address, the noble lords severally spoke iu reply, thanking the Inhabitants of Whitchurch for the honour done thein by the invitation, & c. Mr. Wicksteed then took his place iu the procession, which immediately moved on in the following order:-— Two Trumpeters, 011 horseback j Band of Music; W WlCRSTEF. D, Esq the Magistrate ; The Committee, consisting of 20 gentlemen, two and two; The Gentlemen of the town and neighbourhood who joined the procession, four aud four; Constables, with white wands, two and two ; THE CAR ; Constables, two aud two. As soon as the procession began to move, a royal salute of cannon was fired : I liis was a signal for the bells to begin ringing, and they immediately struck up a merry peat, which continued during the whole of the time The pro- cession moved through the town, and round the lawn of Mr. Wicksteed at the other extremity, where a large party of ladies were assembled to pay their respects to t he noble peers ; afler which the procession passed along the town to the Tontine Inn, where a most elegant and sumptuous dinner was provided, consisting of turtle, veni9on, and every olher delicacy- About 170 gentlemen sat down to this repast. Mr. Wicksteed took the chair: Lord Combermere on his right, aud Lord Hill on his left. The noble lords and thc chair man sat under an elegant crimson velvet canopy, enriched wilh a beautiful dome top, and black and gold cornice, crimson v< lvet drapery suspended on each side. At the top of the canopy, on each side, were displayed the flags of England, with the emblems of war inverted inwards, lo denote Peace. Under the flags, on black velvet, in large gold letters, were the words CoMRERMERfc and HILL; and round the room were inscribed the names of the differ- ent places where British valour aud the heroic deeds of the noble visitors had shone so conspicuously during the Peninsular war; these were in large gold letters, ou black velvet, beautifully festooned round with various flowers and wreaths of laurel. After dinner, the following toasts were given from the chair: The King; in silence, standing— The Prince Regent ; three times three-— Ttie Queen and Royal Family ; three times three— The Duke of York ; three times three— The Army and N. ivy ofGreat Biitaiu; three time's three— The Allied Powers; three times three— The Duke of Wellington ; three times three. The chairman then rose, aud, in a speech of great length, couched in the most elegant and energetic language, thank- ed the noble lords for the honour done the town by their attendance on lhat day ; after which, he severally addressed them on their glorious aehievemom « , • « *•!"'** « **'< rtri vivvrrs ti. cy had rendered to their country, which would ever cherish a grateful recollection of their heroic deeds, which had so materially contributed to give Peace . to Europe aud Liberty to the Inhabitants of the Peninsula; and concluded by proposing the healths of the two noble lords. This was most rapturously received, and drank with three times three, amidst thunders of applause. Lord COMBERMERE rose, and returned thanks: his lordship siated, that " whatever difficulties and dangers he had undergone in the service of his country, had been more than amply compensated by the bounty of his Prince aud the grateful approbation of his countrymen :" he said, that u whenever his services were required, he should, upon all occasions, be ready to sacrifice his life in defence of that country, which had too proudly appreciated his abilities in the late coolest:!'— he concluded by giving as a toast— Prosperity to the Town of Whitchurch " Lord HILL then rose, and addressed the company with peculiar effect.; aud, in the course of an elaborate speech, having slightly touched on some lead ng. events in w hich Itis lordship had acted a conspicuous part, attributed the merit to the bravery of the soldiers . and the able assistance he had received from his coadjulprs,; and particularly declared, that, in the heroic deeds which were performed, and which had secured the great objects of the war, tip individual had. been more conspicuous, po personal bravery more distinguished, than that of the noble lard ( Comber- mere), his fiiund on the right. He concluded by giving 4< The Health of tbe worthy Chairmanwhicfi was drank with enthusiasm, and with three times three. A number of other loyal and patriot ic toasts were given from the chair, amongst which was " Snccffss to Lord Hill and his American Expedition." In returning thanks, the noble lord said, that ^ with the means already * here, the veteran troops on the way, and those" promised by his Prince, be trusted, Uiider Providence, he should so humble the Americans, as to bring them to a due sense, of their unfaithful conduct towards their parent country, and to dispose them to accept those'terms of conciliation which were held out to Hum hVEugland f" then, adverting lb the prosper . ly of t ills hajftfj count: y, be ivm- irked, lhat at a public " dinner in London he had ihe ploasnie to recollect to have heard- FiebWiV^ irsjuil Blucher say, u 11 appy .

The procession had a most pleasing appearance, aud might justly vie with any. similar display in places. of greater magnitude.

Competition ( if Pipers.— The annual competition for prizes given by the Highland Society of Loudon, to the live best performers on lite Great Highland Bagpipe, was lield in the Theatre Royal, Edinburgh, on Wednesday, the 3d August inst. in presence ofa Committee of Judges, appealed by the Highland So- ciety of Scotland, anil a numerous and respectable audience. On the return of tiie Judges from an ad- joining apartment, to which they had retired for the purpose of deciding the prizes. Sir John Sinclair, the Preses, addressed the audience to the following < ffect: " That, having had tiie honour of presiding at the last Competition of Highland pipers, and of presenting tlie prizes ttltiie successful candidates, lie had thought it inciniibent'upon him to Jjansmit an account of tlieir proceedings, to that dis'inguislied character Sir Row- land Hill, now Lord Hill, who had several corps of Highlanders under his command, first in the Peninsula, and afterwards in France; and who, he was persuaded, would feel much pleasure- in communicating those particulars to his Highland friends and companions in arms. He was not disappointed, having htul thef satis- taction of receiving jroni Lord tl ill a letter, w hich, as. it does credit to thai gallant officer, and to the bruvu Caledonians who serve:! uuder his command, he thought il right lo read upon the present occasion.

That impressed with this idea, Ihe Committee will endeavour, hy every means in their power, to transmit an account of these compe- titions in Gaelic, lo every quarter where Highland regiments are employed, from a full conviction lhat such proceedings are calculated not only to preserve the ancient warlike spirit of those corps, but to stimu- late Ihem to still greater exertions."

No bills were found against Timothy Core and John Williams; aud one was discharged bv pro' lamaiiun - Important Tithe Cause.— Al lire above Assizes came on to lie tried a cause of very great importance to the community, particularly 10 the Clergy, wherein the Executorsofthe late Kev. Or Ford, Principal of Magdalen Hall, Oxford, were ' Plaintiff- ; anil M'IMI Burster, of Cripplegate, near Worces- ter, Defend. in' The case appeared as follows -. The defendant, being proprietor of a wood containing about 170 acres, situate in the parish of Cradley, in tbe count v of Hereford, of which lite lale Dr. Ford was Rector, gave the latter notice, in December, 1812, of setting out the tithes of underwood which she had heen falling, in a pari of tbe wood in question, and which were collected in puisiiance of such notice. Previous tothe month of May • following ( Ihe lime of bark stripping), defendant appiized the rector by letter, that she was about to col down a quan- tity of black poles that grew in llie part ol Ihc wood from which tbe tithes of tbe unilerwood_ h. ad been taken; but ' lhat ' lh£ y were' nut tilhcalile, being upwards ot^ ^ s years growth. ' The'- e^ iotes the ileTt'VuTnTit a? cowli" nj; Ty cut down and carried away, without setting out lite tithes thereof The rector dying soon afterwards, the plaintiff's, as his executors, brought their' action in tbe Court of King's Bench, on Ihe statute of Ed wain! VI. for subtraction of those tithes. The plaintiffs produced a great number of witnesses, chiefly limber aud coppice- dealers, resident iu the counties of Hereford, Worcesttr, and Glocetler, to prove the wood in question was a coppice ; that il bail been regularly and progressively fallen every 14 or 15 years from time immemo- rial ; that the black poles weie not timber, being only from 6 lo 20 inches in circumference;. and that they germinated from old stools or stubs. The plaintiff's furl her proved, lhat tithes of 1 he same sort of wood, growing in Ihe same parish, had been paid to tbe rector and liis predecessors for a series of\ eais ; anil alsotbnt a composition for I he foliages in the wood in question, had been actually paid to him by tin- defendant and her father, from tbe year 1795 to 1812. And lo shew that such wood was litheable by law, the plaintiffs' Counsel quoted several cases 011 the subject ; the chief of whicb were, Turner v: Smith, 2d Gwil. Cas. 529; anil Walton i> Lady Mary Tryon, Ambler, 133: in the latier of which Lord // ard' fcA said, " ' liiit germlns, arising from old stools( which was the'case of riinsl coppices in England), no tree remained from whence Ihe privilege of limber was derived ; ; herefore all such kind of wood was litheable ; and it'll wi re oilier- ise. the Clergy would he deprived of great part of their til hes." Tlie defendant's Counsel, after t ailing witnesses to prove the age of the poles, quoted tbe 2d Inst.. 643, anil several cases in opposition to ( he plaintiff's' claim ; and also con- tended, IIpoo the authority of those cases, and on Ihe statute of I be 45th of Edward lil t hat " all trees above the (' inwtli of 20 years, were exempt from the paytiiriil of tit hes." M r- Da mice v, in a reply of great length, itt whir h he most • ably and successfully combated all ftiecaseratid aFgtimrntS urged by Ihe defendant, observed, lhat l ite case of Walton I). Tryon, ever since ils ' determination, had been acted upon and recognized as law ; and particularly iri a recent ease iu the Court of Exchequer ( lite name of which lie ditl not recollect, though he had taken a note of it iu town), where- in it was decreed, l| tat an account should betaken ofthe tit, lies of coppice wood above the growth ofso years. The learned. Jtidgi, after slating the evidence, and ob- serving thereon, left il to Ihe Jury to delennine, whether lite trees in question were timber . trees, according lo tbe custom of ttie rnunlry.— The Jttrv immediately found, Ihey were not timber trees according to such cusiron. Ou wliirh find- ing a verdict was ordered 10 he entered for llie plaintiff's, wilh liberty for the defendant ( if she though! . fii) lo apply, next Term for the opinion of Ihe Court 011 the question til' law, viz. whether trees of litis nature, and lite growth . pf 20 years and upwards, are discharged of lilhcs by the; "" statute, of Sg/ t^ a Cueduq.

I. IVES ON A SLEEPING IN PA NT. Ail thou a thing of mortal birth. Whose Imppv home is on the earth * Does human blood with life imbue Those wandering veins of heav'nly blue, Tbat sirav along thv forehead fair, l. otft ' mid a gleam of golden hair ? Oh ! can that light and aiiv Breath, Sleal from a being doom'd to death ? Those feat urea lo the grave be sent, In sleep thus mutely eloqm nt ? Or art thou, what thy form would seem, The phantom of a blessed dream ? Oh! that my spirit's eye could see Whence bursts those gleams of ecstasy; That dawning light ofsoul appears To plav from thought above thy years. Thou smil'sl, as if I by soul was soaring To.

What brighter throne can brightness find To reign on, t1ian an infant's miud, Ere sin destroy, or error dim The glory of the^ eraphim ! The following ingenuous " specimen of poetry was exhibited on the shop of a country tailor, in a western town, lately illuminaled in honour of the Peace :— " When Britons fought, and Frenchmen fell, Tailors got ru b, and plops did sell; But now, alas! the War's no more, Poor George must cabbage—- as before." SALMON. Mr. Ellis, of Minslerworth, in a letter addressed through Mr. H. Moseley to Ihe Worcester Severn Association, has shewn Ihe pernicious effects of calch- itlg Salmon during Ihe spawning season, when the laws truly designate that fish as unwholesome. Respecting the persons guilty of that illegal practice, he says : " I would wish them lo consider that the salmon so taken would, after depositing their spawn, return to Ihe sea, and in a few weeks renew themselves, and return again as new salmon, of inch- Used weight and excellent fla- vour. Now suppose we fix the number at 5f> 0 which are annually destroyed, that would have deposited their spawn, arid thi> « e upon nn average to we git 16lbs. each, the gross weight would he 8000lbs. or about four tons of excellent foot' prematurely destroyed. Conceive also thedeslrucliou of spaw'ti in every Spawner so taken. J did m> self count the eggs in the roe of a salmon weighing I7lbs. and found the number lo be 11,350, which, a! Ihe growth of lib. each, would have given a quantity of food rather better than five tons ; at lOlbs. each, fifty tons j and 100 salmon ol the like weight would, upon the same principle of calculation, give 5000 lomi; a produce equal to 10,000 acres of wheat, at 20 bushels per acre, when in flour nt 56ibs. per bushel. I also marked some dozen samlets, by fixing copper wire through their fins: I began" on the 21st of April, 1813, and continued marking until Ihe 5th of the following May ; and on the ensuing 8th of July, one of the samlets was taken as a botcher, weighing • H'. bs." CATTLE. The following interesting facts and observations were cominnnicatcd to the Editor of the GI cester Journal, and inserted in that paper on the ls( inst. SIR—- On Monday, Ihe llth inslant, Mr. Robins, of Bevel- stone, took eighteen yearling beasts out of a piece of clover- levs, where the pasturage was good, and the yearlings themselves were in good condition. He Ant" them into a piece of pasture- ground, where the herbage was also good, very sweet; and though there was no excess, yet it was sufficient for them, lt is between 20 and 80 acres, chiefly sloping; but at the bottom it about half rising on both sines. n acre of flat land. The ground Ibis is of course more subject to floods and other waters than Ihe remainder of the ground; and in this pari of it alone, the coichicum tiuliimnale ( meadow- saffron, or tube- root) grows in great abundance. On Ihe ensuing Friday, Mr. Robins was told, that one of his vearlings was ill; that what should have come from it as dung was liquid, of the colour and consistence of whey, w ith numerous seeds of what since proves to be the" colchirnm in it. The beast was brought home immediately, and a cow- doclor applied to, who sent a purge, and ordered three quarts of blood lo be taken. The next morning (.- aturday) Mr. R. discove ed that others we- e falling in the same way. They were brought home, and the cow- doctor sent for, who arrived in about three hours, atid found two nearly dead They died while he was bleeding smd dienching the others, whirh were evidently getting worse very- fast ; ami during the night five more died, and it was nol expected that any would survive. On opening those which were dead, ihe food was found clogged together in a crude undigested mass, incapable of pass- ing through the proper ducts; and in the stomach there was a quantity of seeds of the colchicnm, and portions, nnd even whole pods, of the seed- vessels con- taining the seeds, as also some of the leaves. The purges were continued, which soon made many of the animals void the seeds, together with dung, and have perhaps saved ten of them, though they yet remain in « very weak state. I should, perhaps, have said be- fore, that one of them has not appeared to have been at all affected. I believe Ihere are several instances of such injury arising from Ihe coichicum autumnale; but even if there were not, surely Ihis is of sufficient magnitude to excuse my request to you lo lay it before the Public, under the hope that jour doing so may prevent future damage. Dr. W ithering says, " This is oue of the plants which, upon the concurrent testimony of ages, vvas condemned as poisonous ; bul Dr. Stocrck. of Vienna, bas taught us that it is a useful medi- cine. The roots have mm h acrimony ; Ihat formed inlo a syrup, wifli certain additions, it is found a very useful pec- toral and diuretic; lhal it ir. recommended as a narcotic and drastic purge, particularly in cases of the dropsy " The Doctor here, however, is probably speaking of its effects on man only, and does not mean to refer to those it may have on other animals, or any species of them, lor which, however various Ihey may be, 1 would refer you to Ihe Swedish Pan, as given in that most excellent collection of tracts made by Mr. Benjamin Slillingfleet, relating to various wonderful operations of the great Creator, which I cannot but wish in the hands of every one. In Ihe Sd edit. 1175, p. 349, it says— " One animal leaves that which to itself is poisonous,' to anolhemoinial, which feeds on il deliriously. Long- headed water- hemlock will Will a cow ; whereas ibe goat browses on il greedily Monk's- hood kills a goat, but will not hurl a horse; and Ihe luller almond kills a dog. but if is whole- some food for a man I'areley is deadly lo small birds, while swine eat il safely; and pepper is mortal to swine, and wholesome lo poultry. Thus every animal has its allotted portion." Of the effect of the colchicnm aulumnale, I find a note on the passage wiiich immediately follows this, hut which is so apposite to the subject, that I had betier transcribe it: ." Animals distinguish the noxious from llie salutary, by smell and taste. Younger animals have these senses more acute, and, therefore, aie more nice in distinguishing plants. An empty stomach will often drive animals to feed upon plants lliiil were not intended for them hy nature Bui whenever this happens, they become more cautious for the future, and acquire a certain kind of experience Foi ex- ample, the monk's- hood, which grows near Fahluna, is generally untouched bv all Ihe animals that are ai customed to these places, but if foreign cattle are brought thither, and meet with Ibis veget ble, they venluie to take too large a quantity, and are killed." The note on this passage, to which I wish to draw attention, > s— " The same thing has been told me by the country people of Herefordshire, in relation to the meadow- saffron, which fcl- ouS iu great plenty iu some parts of lhal comity." May 1 be allowed to suppose, that the more acute aense of young animals, mentioned iu this paragraph, may have been got tbe better of by the novelty ot getting into a fresh pasture; and that such novelty had overcome Ihat small portion of . discretion which gene- rally attends youth ( and the remainder may form * lesson useful l" o your readers} for olher cattle, but one year older, had very fately been in the same field with impunity. My letter is too long to allow ( if other quotations from the same book, or they would shew that hunger, in even old beasts, would have the same effect, unless the pasture they were put into was " good enough to allow tliem a sufficient choice, from which to satisfy that hunger, and refuse vvhat would be prejudicial, without that trouble which hunger can ill brook. I have only further to add, that I atn induced to lose as little time " as possible, in sending you this informa- tion, from the consideration, that though cattle might refuse the young plant, from the acrimony which generally attends plants in their early entrance on, and first progress in seeding, yet thai, on its losing that acrimony from maturity, they are more likely fo eat it, and many may in consequence be destroyed in a few succeeding weeks, as this plant accommodates itself more to tbeir tasle : and that 1 have been more prolix than 1 should otherwise have been, in stating its medi- cinal efl'cct, from the hope that some gentleman skilled therein may be assisted by it, and favour us with an adequate remedy. I am, Sir, your humble servant, July 18, 1814. W. L. B, P. S.— The coichicum autumnale is easily distin- guished, and 1 apprehend well known, from its blossoms appearing in September, without a single leaf or other common attendant on plants in their flowering state; but iii the spring the seed- vessel appears on a stem which seems lo support only one head, but on exami- nation proves to be three pods, forming a head about Ibe size of a finger, and attended by three or more leaves coming to a point like a sharpened sword. Of the broad- leaved dock, which I believe is the most obstinate of our plants, Mr. Curtis, in the Flora Lon- dinensis, after mentioning the iron invented for digging it up by Ihe roots, says— " Frequent mowing certainly destroys il, and frequent spudding, it IB presumed, would have the same effect; but unless it be done carefully, and at staled periods, little good is to be expected " 1 have transcribed the whole of this, because it may afford a useful hint to many of your readers, though the former part alone is applicable to our purpose. A bulbous root, it must be acknowledged, has strong resources in itself j but what is more easy lhan to spud tip the blossom of the coichicum autumnale, which has no power of resistance, or to mow down Ihe seed- vessel soon after it has appeared, which is always peculiarly bare, tbe grass being eat away from it; and are there not grounds to hope, that the seed- vessel, which must have been formed so many tBonths before, cannot be renewed, or that vegetation re- excited, the loss of which must be peculiarly prejudicial to the root. Since writing the above, a fncdical friend whom I have mentioned it to, has done me the favour to con- sult Lewis's Materia Mcdica about the coichicum ; and, from the account there given, thinks the following* may be a good method of treatment : A purgative t) f caslor oil's then mix with fhe water given to the cattle as much vinegar as they will drink ( probably a mixture of treacle will induce them to take a greater quantity); add Ihe occasional use of such quantity of opium as is generally given to catlle.— He observes, however, that Lewis speaks chiefly of the root; but that the seeds, which are our chief objects, may have qualities differ- ent from those of Ihe root: a more perfect knowledge of the plant may, therefore, suggest some other prac- tice. Should such occur to any gentleman, a commu- mention thereof to the public may surely be attended with highly beneficial consequences. DISTRESSES IN GERMANV. To the Committee for relieving the Distresses by the War in Germany, from the Patriotic Committee of Ladies at Leipzig. Imp essed with the most lively seme of grateful aeknovV- ' edgu ent, we again return heartfelt than& s to the London Commi'tee " for relieving fhe Distresses in GeYina y," fir the Donation of the remitted .6300 sterling, to be distributed through us to the Destitute. It is with the con> cious satis- faction of having fulfilled so sacred a mission, that we mention the inexpressible joy thereby diffused' amongst its objects. The added statement, concerning the sum of 1,425 dollars paid to us by Messrs. Frege and Co. gives the names of the persons aud families, together with the sum each has received. Poverty, misery, and starvation, were brought into almost every dwelling by the dreadful calamities Of the lasl year, hut now their humble inmates can procure themselves some of their most urgent wants, or means of future livelihood. Oh J holv must Wi lament, that the ebullitions of their grate- ful feelings cannot reach the ears of their distant generous benefactors ! We have, placed in the bards of Messrs. Frege and C >. the receipts, as well as the letters passed between ns and tin Country Hectors on the subject; and have particularly ap plied to the lattei, to point out to us the most di- tressed objects I in distant, retired situations*, BO easily neglected aud over- looked under such a mass of general misery, ft has likewise been our latest and most particular care, to procure a list of those poor deserted, destitute, fatherless, and motherless orphans, become so by the battle near Leipzig, and its train of consequences— hunger, misery, and infectious diseases ; their number amounts, as we find, to about 600, in Ihe circle of Leipzig, not. including three detached Bailiwics and the City itself. Tbe teridernis, and innocence of their childhood, that maternal feeling ever reigning in our bo oms, produce the strongest call upon us in attaining tbe end desired, to acquaint tbe London Committee of our great distress from this tide, with the assurance, that if pecuniary aid should be granted them, it would be'' our sweetest office to prove ourselves worthy ol their confidence so solicited. Innumerable blessings ascend without ceasing to Heaven, from the lips of the comforted in sorrow, for Iheir Benefactors and Advocates in England's happy hie. Teirestrial joys brighten the countenances of those relieved; celestial delights await, in a future state, tbe unexampled charitable donors. Permit us to subscribe nur names, iu expressing our deep veneration for the noble friends of suffering humanity, and as foimm'g the Patriotic Committee of Ladies iu tbe City of Leipzig. The following cause, tried at the late Stafford As- sizes, has excited considerable interest:— The Kilt* v. Ihe Wolverhampton New Union Mill Company — Tbe case on behalf of the Plaintiff having been opened by Mr Poller, Mr. Dauncey contended, that this establishment was prejudicial to tbe trade of a baker, aud conscquentlv came within the meaning of Ibe. Act, which declared com- panies of this kind unlawful. The Learned Gentleman alluded o the limitation of Shares to 15,000, by which he said the Company might consist of 15,000 persons, and consequently such persons as had pecuniary connections with the mill mi^ ht have to sue 15,000 subscribers, or any lesser number nf which the Company might be composed. The transfer of shares, the opening of bonks, and tlie acting as a body, were illegal, and came within the purview of the above- mentioned Act. — Mr. D further said, that this was not a faircompetition, but a monopoly, tending to annihilate the fair tiader ; if this institution was toT'iaTirly Ire anticipated the ex'iiiCtiort of the baking business, by which the public would eventually suffer, and the scheme itself,, which had at first put on so captivating a forni, would then be shewn in its true colours, as leading to evil to the public, at large— The learned Coun- sel complained that llie Union Company sold at a piice whieh it was impossible the bakers could reduce their profits to ; they weie enabled lo do this by keeping, as it were, the market to themselves, and the certainty they had of 15,01) 0 customers; they sold to themselves ( for ready money or weekly payments) nt a price not exceeding that of the raw commodity, and at the price Ofunground corn. Several Bakers and Millers were examined, who staled, that a considerable decline had takeu place in the baking atid flour trades, 6ince tbe establishment of the Union Mill, and that it would", be impossible for them to continue their trades on the piesent tooting. The case on the part or the prosccutiou being closed, Mr. Jet vis rose on Ihe part of Ihe defendants, and after adverting to ihe similarity of the Wolverhampton to that of tiie Bir mingham Union Mill, proceeded to state reasons which led to the erection of the foinier, viz. the advance ou Wheat of 2 « . per bushel, and on Bre: ad 2d. per quartern loaf, on the Pith of August 1812 ; tbe sum laised tor the establishment was £ 14,000, of. which the Mill cost £ 11,000, leaving but Jt' 3,0 O to carry on trade with. Mr. J. also contended, thai expectations were held out but wh. it had been realized, and a necissaiy ailicle nf life was sent out to the public oi good quality, and at a cheaper rate. The words in Ihe Act. mischievous and driigerous," were tio more applicable to the present case, than that Of the Ki- g » . Webb-. John Ciockett, on the part 01 the defendants, stated", Ihat he ma le a rurvev in tli'e year IfJoY of twelve mil^ s round Bilston, in< hiding Biimingham: at which time he ascc'itain- ed the ponulatioii to be 434.812, and the number of mills did rot giind a sufficient quantity Weekly, for tlie corisumpliou, by 8,000 bushels. Sttveial wituenes Were examined, whose evidence weut to shew the utility of this institution, by a reduction iu the prii e of bread and flour. Mr. Dauncey replied, but adduced no fresh arguments against the defendants. Mr. Justice Dallas, in summing up the evidence, observed that he fully as enled to the law as laid down in- the Kin% v. Webb bv Loid Kllei bwough, in the year 1811, in favour of the Birmingham Union Mill Flour and; Bread Company, which directed the judgim nt to be entered for the defendants After C>| suiting a quartet of an hour, the Jury pronounced' a verdict Jor the Defendants. COURT OF CH4NCERY TUESDAY AUGUST 9. IMPORTANT POINT OF PRACTICE. Mr. Johnson moved, on the part of a Solicitor, of fhe name of Loiiy, that a peison of the name of Thomas should pay to him the cobts incmred on the pait of the plaintiff, under the following circumstances :— Tbe plaintiff, for whom Mr Lonv was Soli' ltor, had filed hi, bill to redeem the equity ot a mortg gr over cetlain property which had belonged to hi- fathei, an i the cause had bten sei down for hea ing, when the plaintiff filtered inlo a bargain with Thcmas, by which ' he latter became the purchaser oi theequ. ty ol redemption, and the rau e wa- take.; out of Court. The tiansa. tjon hav ing'comi? to the ears of Mr. Lmiy, and he knowing that his client, th^ plaintiff, was in bankrupt ciiln'uis'tanCes, ami that if the money gut into his hands, he. shou. d never receive pa - mem of his costs, seived a notice on Thomas, n t to pay over the purchase- money to him, Thomas, however, chose to dis- • egaid this notice, and Mi. Johnson now submitted, on the author ty ot Certain cases, in which il was I. eld that a So citor h d a lien foi his costs on auv fun I which hat been Created bv his Industry ; that, unless Thoma- coil id shew tha.' he had parted with the purchase money, previous tin the notice being served oil bim by Lony, he must still be liable to him for the costs of the suit. The Lord Cbancillor said, if the plaintiff's Solicitor had gone on to a Dtcree, in that ease notice to the defendant nut to pay to the plain: iff would have been good ; but how was his L rdship tu get at the present case ? He did not see that he could get at it in any other way than by the Sol o tot's gi- ing notice to Thomas the purchaser in this case, and then filing a bill against him, by which he would be brought inlo Court. A Solicitor, his Lordship presumed, could give notice only to a party in a cause. How then could his Loidship get at money iu the hand of this person, Thomas, when he was no party to anv cause before his Lordship ? If a D cree oI Redemption had been made, and there had been a fund over which the Court had a controul, put of which the costs might have been paid, the Solicitor, no doubt, would have had a lien on that fund fur his costs ; but here there was no fund over which liis Lordship had a controut; Elizabeth Oehme, Eliz.

Ilemedy for the Croup.— lt is said that Dr. Wigard, of Hamburgh, has discovered an excellent remedy for the Croup ll consists in administering, according lo Ihe age aud constitution, every hour, from iwo to three, or even from four lo five grains of calomel, vvith tbe addition of half a grain or at Ihe most one grain of lllosclius, to be continued till vomiting occurs. A substance of tlie con- sistency of cream, of greenish- yellow hue, is brought up, similar lo thai which children bring up towards tbe latter stage of the hooping cough The earlier this vomiting begins, Ihe mure certain and speedy is the cure After this siage, Dr W . orders the powders to be given every two or Ihiee hours, aud a Syrilp of Oxym. Scitiae. Syrup, Senega?, Ammonia Muriaia, and Vin. Alilimou. Hnxii. from Iwo or thrre lea- spoonfuls every hour, lo promote the vomiting. A correspondent recommends the application of common oil l. v a brush, us an effectual remedy for the ex. I'irpation of the destructive animalcnlie, whieh has lately committed such ravages on the larch and other trees in this country.

PC XR or RICHMOND, lst Inns 80 The following is the vision which the fanatic Johanna Southcote professes to have seen previous to ber mira- culous conception, in her 65th year! and of which an account i9 given iu her Third Book of Wonders : — ' On the 14th of October, 1813, 1 wasordeied to sit up all night in a room by myself, which 1 did. Many extra- ordinary things were revealed to tile, why Christ took man's nature upon him, and what tie suffered for man's sake ; that [ should keep thut night in eVeilasting remembrance, and nut forget the giver of the blessings I enjoyed.— About 1' 2 o'clock 1 looked at the candle; there appeared something Idie a targe b> vvl behind it, with a point towards the candle ; the candle was flaming very bright, aud there appeared a ring as le I as pcarlet, circled round the tniddle of the flame ; hi'tnediaieiy there appeared a baud as white as snow, which came out between the bowl and the candle, and pointed towards me; 1 trembled to see it, but was answered—* FEAH Nor ; IT Is I.' I vvas then ordered to put ou my glasses, aud the hand- appeared the second time, more brilliant than before; but then the flame of the taodle seemed parted in two, and lo « iked in a different manner than the first, but burnt very bright. The hand was pninted towards me the second time, as white as snow, and a ted cuff wasupi. n the wiist" Horrid Murder.^— A most atrocious murder hits been discovered by ihe accidental finding of the body iu a small wood, callcd Norwood, near Sheffield. About iwo months ago, bills were placarded iu Sheffield, describing a girl, about 1* 2 vears of age, named Anil Hough, w ho had left her father's house in Carvei - street, and part of whose clothes were fun nil in a privy, in Townhead- sireet, a circumstance which oc- casioned a variety of conjectures, and considerably aug- mented what then appeared, and cerlainly vvas, a nivstery The discovery of the body is understood to have been made by three girls, who were walking in the wood on Sunday week, and whose terror, on beholding it's wretch- edly mangied condition, one arm having been separated and lying at a distance from it, and the whole most offensively putrid, was such us may be better imagined than described. We have not heard that any person has been apprehended on suspicion of baring been concerned iu this truly tragical catastrophe. Sporting fntelligevre!— Mr. Walt has sold Petuaria ( by Orville) to Mr. Noke, of York, who purchased her for Lord Cremorne, for 3000 guineas ! and she is gone to Hambleton lo be trained. Vaccination.— The Moniteur of tbe 31st utt. con. tains a long report of a meeting held on the 10th of July, by the Central Vaccine Society of Paris, at which the Baron de Chalrol presided in" the absence of the Minister of the Interior. After he had addressed the meeting, M. Judelot, President of Ihe Central Com- mittee, declared, that the results of Vaccination in France had, during the last year, surpassed those of any preceding ones. " lt is now proved," said he, " by the correspondence of the Prefects willi the Minister of the Interior, that great contagions of the Small pox have ceased, that the general mortality is diminished, and that the population has considerably augmented in the departments, in proportion to the more general emploiment of the preservative. The Committee conceives that it has now approached much nearer to the object towards w hich it has been anxi- ously tending for fourteen years, and the prospect of which, more or less distant, has invariably stimulated its efforts. This object is the total extinction of the Small- pox in France."— The diminution of mortality lias invariably been proportionate to Ihe activity em- ployed in propagating Vaccination. Thus at Nantes there died ofthe Small- pox, in 1S09, 233 persons; in 1810, 189; in 1811, 77; and in 1812, 49. At Stras burg, the number of deaths by Ihe same disease were, ill 1803, 518 persons; in 1807," 284 ; in 1811, 14 ; and in 1812, I. This diminution of deaths is always pro- portionate to the number of persons vaceinaled. in • 43 communes of the department of the Oise, it appears ' that the number of deaths of children under Ihe age of 12 years, during Ihe ten years preceding the intro- duction of vaccination, was 13,370 ; and in the last ten years 10,310, being a diminution of 3,260 during Ihc latter period. The natural consequence of this diminu- tion of the mortality, is an increase of the population. Thus, in the department of the North, the number of inhabitants, wliirb in 1806 was 839,833, amounted, in 1819, to 871,657, being an increase, in six years, of 31,824 persons,— From the statements received, it ap pears that, in 1812, 724,893 persons were vacciniled in 106 departments, and that the to'al number who have undergone the operation, since its introduction iu France, is 3,035,705 ' The Emperor Alexander.— On passing through the village of Uelfingly, in Suffolk, the Emperor of Russia was struck with the neat appearance of the house of Mr. Hickman, a wealthy yeoman of that place. He desired llic postillions to stop, in order, as he observed, that he might indulge the curiosity he felt to visit an English farm- house. The Emperor alighted, and weut into the house, with the whole economy of which lie was made acquainted He then, taking hold of fhe arm of Mrs. It. while the Duchess, his s ster, leaned on that of Mr. R. viewed the garden and farm- yard, and, on taking leave, expressed the puregratific ition he had enjoyed j at the same time acknowledging himself greatly surprised at finding so many of the eleg tncies of life in the habitation of a farmer.— Kentish < hron. More tPonders I— No sooner does one absurdity expire, than another rises up in its stead. The Stam- ford Ghost, the Fasting IVoman of Tutbury, Doctor Touch'em, and that " Weird Sister,-' Jo anna South- cote, are now completely rivalled by the awful horrors of a shrill voice issuing from a Dead thild in iis coffin I ! /— This story affords an additional proof, on Ihe one hand, that there is nothing too gross for public credulity, and, on the other, that ignorant people may be made dupes of their own senses, and become instrumental in disseminating opinions which have their source, exclusively, in the arts of imposture, the dreams of enthusiasm, or the overpowering force of a strong imagination yielding to the influence of the peculiar circumstances under which it is excited. The precious Tale is as follows: — Ann I'a lor was ihe daugh er of a respectable Yeoman, living ML the parish of TlVeiton, Devon BCine HI about ii tnoti'h ago, she lav six days' iu a state of insensibility, to all appearance dead— > ne of those cases', doubtb-. s, ot suspended animation, of which there have been maliV instances.— During her lying in this state, she had a Ireatn, which the family ca'l a t- ance, in the printed account which they have so widely circulated. This dream anonnds with ex- cessive absurdities, interspersed with a lew pious itfleciion*. Her request on her awaking from her trance, and the ex- traordinary- circumstances whieh happened after her decease, are thus related bv her father: — " When she recovered her stniior, she requested some one would write down all she had to omold, and I chaiged the person that did it, as sue might be put upon her oath; not to add or dmiini- h a word, nor to a » k her a questi- n, which I knew was duly attended to; then - he earnestly requested all might be printed, aud desi ed I would get ii done; I en- deavotnrd to evade it bv putting some papers in the room, merely to satisfy her mind ; but she soon discovered it was uot the thing. She then said, if it was rid printed, my 8iu » would never be forgiven. As she cuutiiiued urging me t<> il, I went for that purpose the next day, and even went so far ns ihe printer's d « rr, but was ashamed togo in, as I waseoiivinc- ed the world would ridicule it I returned to my home, and she renewing ber inquiries, 1 told her that it was not yet done, but that it should ; she replied, but too lite. Tne next day. nutwith* » nding ir. was Sunday, I wan obliged to go and re- quest that some might be printed early the following morning. 1 returned and told her; she again said, ' it would be too lute.' Sue died the same night, at seven o'clock The next morning her voice was distinctly' and repeat- dlv heard ( in a shrill tone) by tlie person who wrote therelatiou, making iter firmer inquiry. Between 10 and 12 fhe men came to put fier in Ihe coffin, end when perfoimed, ihe whole family as- sembled to dinner; but wonderful to relate, her voice was again heard, saying, ' Father, it is not prrin'ed.' Had 1 been bv myself, i should have conceived ihat it was my agitated mind that deceived, hut ah present heard it. and the men became as if they were thunderstruck I instantly took one of them to the Printer's, where he offe. ed to make oath to what 1 have just related. I took home snme of the papent, read one aloud in my house, and pur an uher iu the coffin ; since which every- lhing has tieeu peaceable, arid we have re- covered our tranquillity ; and we trust iu an al' powerful God, that these tilings are permitted for wise purposes." The numerous affidavits and' solemn pr< testations in favour of Aline Moqre's imposture are well remem- bered. In the present case, Ihe voice is said to have been heard by six persons, all of whom ( with the ex- ceplion of a servant girl, who is suspected) are said to be credible persons, and all Solemnly attest what tliey heard. The child was ten years of age.— The story has been printed and hawked over the country m every quarter, ' fhe Rev. W. Vowles, of Tiverton, has preached a Sermon against it; but he might as well have preached to the winds. There is no reasoning wilh ignorance and enthusiasm: and the shrill voice from the Coffin has already petrified with fear half the old women iu Devonshire I ttobbery— Two weil- dressed men, who had the ap- pearance of London travellers, called al the Sivan Inn, at Ashford , Herts, m » Tuesday^ tlieiicl iust. in a single horse chaise, and immediately ordered a sumptuous supper. Previously to supper being ready, a note was brought by a servant on horseback, addressed to H Smoiley, E-<- q. pur- porting to have come from a gentleman abont 4 miles from the spot. After supper tlie gentlemen called the landlord to take his wine with them, inquired after persons of ihe first vespectabiliy in the county, and made themselves quite at home. The next morning they took their ride to their friend from whom the letter was received, as they pretended, and returned. One of them dined atid slept that night at the inn, whilst his friend with the horse' and chaise went to pay a visit across the country at Royston for a day* having obtained £* 13 for a checque of the inn* 1 keeper. In the morning the single person was missing from the lun before any one was up, having contrived to rob the house of plate and other articles, to the amount of £' 5v — The person left w ith the chaise is in custody.

I pul uiyself under the Care of another Gentleman nf the Profession', who gav » me some Relief, arid as 1 thought cured me; but after imni lime, the Disorder broke out with greater Violence than ever and my Condition nearly reduced me to.
