At the Court at Carleton House, the 14th of August, 1814, present his Royal Highness the Prince Regent in Council. It is ordered, by his Royal Highness the Prince Regent in Council, in the name and on the behalf of his Majesty, that the Parliament, which stands prorogued to Saturday, the 27 th day of August, be further prorogued to Tuesday, tbe lst day of November next. [ This Gazette contains the nomination of the Hereditary Prince of Orange to be an extra Knight of the Bath.] The Duke of Berri's visit to this country was avow- edly for the purpose of congratulating the Prince Regent on his Birth- day, and to invite his Royal High- ness to visit France. His Royal Highness is said to have been much pleased by the compliment, and to have been desirous of accepting the invitation, which he requested time lo consider. On consulting his Ministers, it was found a Regent could not delegate his powers to Lords Justices, without a new Act of Parliament. This put an end to the design gf visiting Paris; but the Duke of Berri repeated the invitation, which was then decisively declined, though in the most polite and handsome manner. The Essex American frigate is said to have landed 2,000,000 of dollars at Valparaiso, before she was taken. Admiral Bradley has been respited during the pleasure of the Prince Regent. Recorder's Report.— Yesterday the Recorder made a report to the Prince Regent of the Convicts under sentence of death in Newgate, when John Field, alias Jonathan Wild, for burglary ; J. Mitchell, for forgery; F. Sturgess, for highway robbery; M. Maroney, alias Mahoney, and J. Ashton, for the like offence ; and H. Lye, were ordered for execution ou Monday next, the 22d instant. WEDNESDAY^ AUGUST 17. At a very late hour this morning we received the French Papers of Sunday last. The Moniteur is filled with addresses from different regiments to the King, with nominations to Military Orders, or accounts ofthe tour of the Duke of Berri through the northern depart- ments. All the other Members ofthe Bourbon Family were re- umted in Paris. Tlte official paper is totally destitute of other articles of intelligence, except foreign news, but which were, however, anticipated by the minor Papers of a preceding date. One of the latter slates, that on the King's birth- day several persons will be honoured with the blue ribbon, or the Order of the Hoiy Ghost. This will be the lirst promotion of the kind since the restoration. The Chamber of Deputies held uo public sitting on Saturday. Two Advocates have been recenlly tried and found guilty, by the Court of Cassation at Paris, for publishing seditious libels; their printers were also found guilty. Their offence appears to have consisted in urging the restitution of emigrant property. The Journal dc Paris has some witticisms about Johanna Southcotc, and the credulity of her disciples. It appears, from a Proclamation of the Governor of Cadiz, that much discontent prevails in Andalusia. The inhabitants are accused of too much curiosity on politi- cal subjects; and the Government is wisely labouring to repress so baueful a passion. The King of Prussiaappears to be very much engaged with Saxouy. On the 3d he passed through Leipsic. The force at present in the Netherlands, Hanoverians, Dutch, and British, is supposed to amount to 40,000 men. It is reported Bonaparte is intriguing in France. While that man is paid and protected as he is, he will be the rallying point of all the discontented. Yesterday morning the Duke of Berri arrived at Dover, and sailed for Calais. In the afternoon Lord Castlereagh arrived and wis to sail this morning. At the Privy Council on Monday his Majesty's ap- probation was given to the Duke of Cumberland's marriage with the Dowager Princess of Salms. Accounts from India, by the fleet just arrived, give very satisfactory accounts of the respect and popularity acquired by the Earl of Moira's Government. The Noble Earl, shortly after his arrival at Calcutta, and on communicating with bis Council and the most distin- guished individuals of the settlement, thought proper to cancel the pompous ceremonial, prematurely arranged on his Lordship's passage out, and very ill adapted to the character, habits, and dispositions of the society. The Royalist sloop of war, has, it is said, ascertained that the Americans are in possession of our private signals. While cruizing, she observed a large sloop of war, which, on being telegraphed, answered, she was the Wanderer, and desired tbe Royalist to close. On doing so, the Royalist made her out to be an enemy, and gave chase, but without effect. The standard of copper lias fallen, during the last three months, £ 34 per ton; a reduction which has been severely. felt in all the Cornwall Mines, particularly the deep ones. The plan of establishing a Fishery at Hove, about a mile from Rrigbton, for supplying the metropolis with fish, is actively proceeding. Nearly 100 pilots and discharged seameu have already enrolled their names as settlers in this marine colony, and a number of French fishermen, from Dieppe, Fecamp, and St. Valary, who are, perhaps, the best hookers, herring and mackerel catchersin Europe, are expected to join them. A sur- vey has just been made, and it is iu contemplation to erect a pier for the security of the packets, colliers, and other vessels, THE CONGRESS. The mission of Lord Castlereagh is connected with negoctattons the most momentous and complicated} and Ihe public confidence had early marked him as tbe fittest person to entrust with tlieir management,— at a Congress too, where lid will lulve to treat with the first Statesmen and most skilful Diplomatists in Europe. The task is a grave and a weighty one; requiring much temper, and at the same time great firmness; implying a profound acquaintance with the pretensions and interests of tbe different Stales; demanding at the same time that kind of mind which is capable of foreseeing Ihe pretensions of each, the! obstinacy wilh which they are likely to be maintained, and Of fixing the limit to which they should be allowed to be carried: His Lordship seems to possess these qualifications. A spirit of justice, the best ingredient in ail transactions, seems to pervade the arrangement as far aS they art; known; and the balance of power, which occasioned so many wars and treaties, aud in which so litlle progress was so long made, promises at last lo bo placed upon a foundation, so as to answer the views of past Statesmen, and to crown Hie exertions of living Poliliciaus. England stands at last upon that dignified eminence, to which, for more than a' century, she had been incessantly aspiring. Thei'e is not a state in Europe, that does not look upon our country with respect, and most of ihem with confidence almost unlimited ; there are even few who would not confide, without hesitation, their interests to the decision of our Government. This character, for honfesty as well as liberality, will greatly tend to facilitate the views of the British Mission at " the Congress. The settlement of Germany and Italy will constitute tbe leading objects of the discussion. Many of the difficulties ap* pear to be already levelled. Austria seems with general consent to have taken quiet possession of what shall form her future empire. She has been active in appropriating her share, and perhaps owes much to that activity^ She has certainly a prospect of becoming a more powerful State than ever; and it is perhaps for the general advantage she should be so. This consideration will palliate her encroachments in Italy. A barrier is necessary on that side to arrest the future inroads of France, whose vast military force will always tesnpt her to enterprises dangerous to- the general safety. Prussia also appears to encounter no impediment in securing the provinces which are to constitute part of ber territory. It is of the most imperious necessity that she should be aggrandised, as much as is consistent with justice. Political expediency ought to have great latitude here ; but perhaps its claims might be satisfied, without the necessity of extinguishing the independence, or even materially reducing the limits of Saxony. The fate of this interesting country; however, seenis to be fixed ; the place it occupied in the political chart of Germany is going to disappear ; and il will be difficult to make up Ihe moral, as well as political loss which will be thus sustained. The annexation of Brabant to Holland is the great triumph of British politics ; and it perhaps perfects the social edifice of Europe. This glorious consummation will explain and excuse many arrangements, which ivould otherwise appear inde- fensible. Here the best interests of England are consulted ; and the pursuits of her greatest Statesmen, for more than a century, are crowned with the most signal and almost unhoped- for success. THURSDAY, AUGUST 18. The Paris Journals of Monday, which have arrived this morning, contain several accounts of ihe popular reception of the Members of the Royal Family^ on their tours, at rev iews, & c. An article in the Paris papers stales, lhat, in order to bring the island of St. Domingo into a proper state o'f cultivation, 10,971 negroes must be imported duriti"- every year of the ensuing five years allowed by the Treaty of Peace for the continuancetif that abominable traffic. We should be glad to know how many french- men are to be exported before this island is brought into_ a proper slate of subjection ? Accounts of military movements may be expected for some time yet to come. France is organizing her regimenls in all quarters. The troops of the respective nations still remain on llie different sides of tbe Rhine. A camp of 30,000 men is to be formed near Vienna. A camp will also be formed in France, near Metz. An article in the Moniteur says, tlie Allies decline assisting the Crown Prince of Sweden in his attacks on Norway, and that he lias determined to undertake the reduction of Norway wilh his own forces. The formation of a French camp of 90,000 me » iti Alsace is contradicted n all tlie German papers. The Pope remoustrates against the occupation of several parts of Italy by the Austrians, and of soma parts by the Neapolitans. It is said his Holiness will appear at Vienna to assert Ihe rights of his Church. The King of Bavaria has made a present of Hie line lordship of Ellingen, iu Francotiia, lo Marshal Princf) Wrede, to enable him to support the dignity lately conferred on him. This estate produces a yearly re- venue of about 100,000 florins. The plague rages at Belgrade, and gives great un- easiness to Ihe Austrian Stat • » . The last accounts from Smyrna represent its ravages in that city as enormous The Jews have particularly suilered. It is reported that General Don is to be appointed Lieutenant Governor of Gibraltar. The Greenland Whale Fishery has this year been uncommonly successful. By accounts from Hull, and the other outports most interested in this commerce, it appears lhat almost every ship is full. The Southsca men also have been equally fortunate » many have lately arrived with full cargoes, and many more arc expected. Price of Grain.— The price of grain in Poland is governed by the price in England. There is no c on- sumption in Poland of grain grown there— all being for exportation. The grain which is at the ports there early in the spring, is in the hands of speculators, who demand a price which will cover their expences with a profit: bul when the corn comes down the rivers in June, the price is regulated principally by the price in England, and the probability of an exportation. The internal corn trade in Poland used to be conducted by the grower sending it to the merchants at tbe shipping port, at bis own expence, and some Jews went up ti e country and purchased on their own accounts. The raising of corn iu Poland is little or no exponce to the landholder; the ground is tilled by Ills peasantry, to whom lie pays nothing, btit gives a small spot of ground; there were scarce any taxes; tbe ground would be a desert if it we"' not cultivated with corn; it requires no manure, for when corn has been raised ou one piece, they take another, and it is left lo return to a desert agitui. ' The granaries are immense at Danlzic, Cricket,— A match at Cricket, for 55 guineas a side, was played on Monday last, on Maldon Marshes, be- tween the gentlemen of the Maldon Club with three picked men from Stock, and 11 of the I'eldon and Mer- sey Island Club, which was decided in favour of tbe Maldon by a majority of 12S runs. LONDON. FRIDAY, AUGUST 19. Th'n morning arrived a mail from Hamburg, with letters of the 9lh. It contains no further accounts of Ihe progress of hostilities between Sweden'and Norway, though they began on tho 28lh ult. The Commissioners of the Allies having returned to Christiana kbout that time, to' make a lastlcffort in favour of an amicable union of the two countries, this measure mav possibly have suspended warlike operations. At Hamburgh the Exchange has risen greatly in favour of- London— a most happy circumstance! The estate which Jo3eph Bonaparte has just pur- chased near Nyon, in the Canton de Vaud, cost 800,000 francs, which he paid in ready money ! A corps of troops which Marshal Qudinot wits lately Teviewing, shouted, Vive Vh. mpereur .'" and could not be induced to change their cry. Oudinot reported ( he circumstance, and the King gave the Marshal per- inisSMn to act as he- pleased. The troops were a few daysafterwards called out again, and manifested Ihe same sentimenls as before. Oudinot ordered all the Officers to come forward, cashiered theni on the spot, commanded them to deliver up their swords and ap- pointed the oldest Serjeants and Corporals in their stead. In less than five minutes, shouts of " five le II oil" re- loundcd from one end of the liue to the other.— Ger- man paper. x.

By accounts from Archangel, of Ihe nth of June, we learn, thai the last winter hail made greater inroads into the summer of that northern latitude than ever bad been known in the mcntorv'of man. The ice of the Dwina had not " broke up tili the24th of May, and even in the thiddie of June Ihe White fca was full of drift ice. No ships had then arrived at Archangel from fo- reign parts, but immense quantities of flax, hemp, tallow, and grain, were expectcd from the interior of Russia.

SouIh America.— Journals from the Ri'e Plale afford some interesting particulars of the events in that quarter down to ihe beginning of June. The " Indepeud. suls" al Buenos Ayres being at a low ebb six mouths ago, J ord Strangford aud Deputies from Rio Janeiro offered their mediation between that party aud the Royalists at TWonleVideo; but their intentions were frustrated by the Vigh terms insisted upon by the latter. The government of Buenos Ayres then determined on making a great effort. Their army appeared before M utevideo.— The Monlevjd- » » us had long had ihe complete command of the fjiver Plate, Slid greatly distressed the people of Buenos Ayres, till a naval force wat collected, by au Englishman named Blown, who had offered his services for thai purpose. A number of merchant vessel, were converted into ships of war. A naval action, preceded and followed by ineffectual attempts to neguriate, took place 011 the 15th of May Ian, iu which the people of Buenos Ayres, commanded by this British subject, were signally victorious. The triumphant insurgents have appointed a military Chief, with the title ol Supreme Director; hud Mr. Guillermo Brown, acting under his auspices, refused, alter the battle, either lo BIIOW an exchange of prisoners, 01 lo grant uny terms to the Montevideaus, other than those indicating a total sur- render of the forls, arsenals, nhips of war, and public pro- perly uf Ihe Spanish Government — The people of Buenos Ayves were equipping fire- ships to destroy the shipping in Montevideo, and Ihe town itself was iu great distress. The only hope of the Moutevideans was supposed to be a vigor- out sortie, for which they were preparing wheu Ihe last advices came away. Should it fail, the town was so strait- ened for provisions, that it was feared il must surrender before the succours could arrive w hich Old Spain will now enabled lo send The Monitor Araucano, a South American paper, gives an account of the cessation of hostilities between the new Revolutionary Government of Chili, and the Viceroy of Lima —- The in habitants of South America are very anxious for a connection wilh England; and important benefits may hereafter arise to Great Britain from a five trade with that extensive ami rich Continent. T his prospect's viewed with eager desire hy the merchants of England, with im- patience and teiror by those of Spain. The Spanish mer- chants hale the whole English nation, from commercial jealousy, from a tear that the monopoly tliev have so loug enjoyed of Ihe trade to South Ameiica will lie broken iu upon by Ihe meicliants of this country. And, truly, the accounts from the River Plate are not likely 10 remove their uneasiness. Tiie insurgent people of Chili stipulate for au intercourse with England, aud ihe lnsuigeuts of Buenos Ayret are protected by au English sailor. These proceed- ing will, no doubt, become llie subject of serious discussion IK- IWCSII the Cabinets of Loudon and Madrid, and the English Government will he suspected, notwithstanding the friendly aud seasonable interference of our able M mis- ter, Lord Strangford, whose advice, if followed, would have saved the royal cause. Should Montevideo fall, the troops beh ligiug to Buenos jlyre* were to be sent against Ihc Hoval Armies from Lima, • whei'c llie strength of Old Spain in Soulh America lies — £ ueuo « Ayies would Ihen be freed front the neighbourhood of enemies, and the River Plate would he open for trade. But the recent events iu Europe have, no doubt, by this time, produced a great change in South America also. The Insurgents, panic struck, would be eager lo make terms ; ihe Royalisls, emboldened, would press on for ascendancy ; and, no doubt tin ir triumph will be celebrated hy scenes as Cruel as any I hat have ever disgraced the annals of history.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 20. All the accounts from France say, the French ar. ny will remain 011 foot till the affairs of Europe are entirely settled. On the other side all the Powers of Germany will remain in artns. From the frontiers of Switzerland to the North Sea, the extensive liue ia covered with formidable armies. The Upper Rhine to the Moselle is occupied by Austrian* aud the troops of the Empire ; the Prussians Occupy the countries situated between the Moselle and the Mcuse; the English, the Hanoverians, the Dutch, and the Belgic Legion, who compose toge- ther only oue fine array, form a line from Nainur to Neuport. It has been stated, that the American Commissioners at Ghent have 110 sufficient powers to conlude a Treaty of Peace. This statement is in a great measure con- firmed by5 the sending of the John Adams American frigate from Osiend to America for further instruc- tions. It is supposed, however, that the Commissioners 011 each side have exchanged Projcts. The English Projet, of course, is sent' to America for consideration. Willi the \ far going 011 in America, and the negocialion in Europe, the treaty is nut likely to coocludc to soon as the o mipaign. ' The Duke of VVellmgtiiri arrived at Brussels tm the llth instant.

The master of the privateer sent seven New York papers, with his compliments, to the Master of the Commercial Rooms! ! I Church Robbery.— On Wednesday morning last, at ati early hour, some villians found meaus to enter the vestry of Paddington church, and to carry off two large chests, containing the church plate and sundry accouuts relative to the parish monies. Taunton, and the parish officers, proceeded to Paddington, and, on examining the vestry door, he soon discovered that the thieves had entered by means of a picklock- key. He then proceeded in his inquiries, and traced the chests fir? t in a cart, Ihen in a wheel- barrow, for some distance, tili at length he discovered them deposited iu an out house belonging to a neighbouring farmer, where it appeared thev had been broken open and left by the thieves, with all their contents, except the plate, which they, deceived in their estimate as to its value, had taken away with them.

The proof was very clear; but your Counsel contended that the facts were not proved 111 poini of law. I, how ever, could not adopt the soundness of tbeir objection*. The evidence, as given on the ( rial, has been submitted to the Judges ; the grounds of objection, and Ihe authorities for Ihe same, have also been laid before them; aud t tie opinion is, that no doubt what- ever could be eiltrrlained of Ihe facts being clearly proved. Willi respect lo yourself, I have now only to pass ihat judgment upon you which was before respited ; and in doing no, I shall refrain from' making any ohseivatiou? upon your marked and aggravated case, as it appeared on Ihe day of your trial. I do not wish lo agitate your feelings, aud 1 shall i- hereby save my own, being convinced Ibe exatnole will Iiavc more effect Hum auy thing I could say ; I shall, there. fore, spate myself Ihe painful task. The sentence of tbe law is, that yon be taken from hence lo the place fiom whence you came ; from ihence lothe place of execution, there to hang by the neck till you are dead ; and Ibe Lord l » ave mercy ou your soul I" Ever since his trial, the prisonrr has evinced signs of unfeigned repentance and becoming resignation ; aud, in this happy slate of mind, he was enabled to anstuin Ihe shock willi great fortitude. Ou retiring, he bowed respect- fully lo the Court; and the whole auditory appeared deeply impressed with the awful situation to which he bad reduced himself He will suffer on Saturday, Ihe 3d of September, unless Ihe mercy of Ihe Prince Regent be inter-, yused : aud great interest is making to implore Royal clemency in his behalf.

House of Brunswick.— The Cerilenary of the acces- sion of the Illustrious House of Brunswick to Ihe Throne of England, is a subject lhat - ippears to be very imper- fectly ' understood, suggestions arc thrown out in some of the papers, as if it were a new dynasty ; which, if in the remotest degree supported by fact, would not be very complimentary to the loyalty and consistency of the country, or to the virtues of ils kings for many centuries. The truth is, that, however the line of Royal succession may have been diverted irom the direct male line in descent, the Kings : md Queens who have successively worn the English Crown for the last 670 years, are all branches of the same family tree, all lineal descendants, male or female, of William the Conqueror, natural son of Robert, Duke of Normandy, trowned King of England Dec. 25, 1066, Indeed, the Crown of England descends, like every other eslate within it, " liuther possessed by noblemen or gentlemen, in fee simple; that is, it descends from father lo son, and in failure of issue male, to the daughter, for ever ; so thai, although we have had the Houses- of York and Lancaster, designated by the Red and the White Rose, the Houses of Stuart and of Brunswick, they have occasioned no absolute break in the chain— they all boast the blood of William the Conqueror in their veins.— Where, however, so mucli misconception has prevailed, anil in a case of such importance, the follow- ing brief account of the succession of the House of Brunswick to the Throne may not prove uninteresting! George the First, 30th King from Ihe Conquest, was great grandson to James the Firsl, grandson to Princess Elizabeth, daughter of James the First, married to Ihe Elector Palatine, son of Ernest Augustus, First Elector of Brunswick Lunenburgh, by the Princess Sophia, daughter ol Princess Elizabeth, Palatine Electress, born May 28, 1G60. The succession was settled on his mother in 1700, and he was proclaimed King of Great Britain, August 1, 1714, at Ihe age of 54 years. He landed at Greenwich, September 18, 1715, was crowned the 2UI. li October, and diet) at Oniahurgh, llth June, 1727, aged 67. He was succeeded bv his son George the Second, who died 25th October, 1760, in the 77th year of his age, titiil 33d of his reign ; and was succeeded by his grandson, his present Majesty George the Third. Longevity.— A New York Paper contains the fol- lowing :—" Henry Brown, a native of New Jersey, residing near Beavertown, was horn January, 16S6; consequently, is now in his 129th year.

He had been a slave 70 years— has beeu a free man 58 years— is now in good health, can walk pretty well, litis a good appetite at times, but is getting weak. lie was never married j and says he wishes to die, but fears he never shall." IVorking Oxen.— Two oxen, of the Hereford breed, the property of Wilbraham Egerton, Esq. M. P, Tatton Park, Cheshire, were taken from work iu the end of August last, pastured till the beginning of November, and then put to stall, feeding on Swedish turnips and straw, till Caudlemas; after lhat they had hay with turnips lill fed off in May. They were sold to Mr. G. Halford, Bucklow- hill, and killed by him.— The weight of the two carcases was as follows: beef, 183 stone; loose fat, 18st. 12lb ; tongues, 1st. 5lb. ; hearts, 1st. Bib.; heads, Sst.; hides, 17st. 8lb.; total, 299st. lib. The beef was excellent, and all sold in the immediate neighbourhood at a great price. No further proof is wanting to shew the value of working oxen. ON LESSENING THE LABOUR OF HORSES. From an Essay- read before the Literary and Philosophical Society of Manchester, by T. Jar, old, M. D. Very early in the history of every country we. find an attempt to have been made to impose on the brute creation lhat labour which the wants and civilization of man gave birth to. The strength of our own arm is indeed insufficient for the duties we have to perform, and, therefore, we of necessity apply and direct tbe strength of domesticated animals. In the nations of Asia, which were first civilized, oxen were made to labour, oxen drew the ark, oxen trod down the corn ; and iu countries where oxen were not known, or were scarce, other animals were domes- ticated, such as the camel in Arabia, and the lama in Soulh America. The horse appears in the early ages of the world to have been exclusively devoted to war 5 and as every rude and barbarous people attach a high degree of importance and dignity to any thing connected with that pursuit, the horse has been held, in their esti- mation, as little less lhan sacred; and the sentiment has in some measure been hauded down to the present day. At a late period in the history of Rome, a conquering general was thought presumptuous, because his tri- umphal car was drawn by four horses ; alid to this day we should attach something more than vanity to the man who was drawn by eight. Carriages and servants any person is at liberty to keep in as great number as he thinks fit j but he is expected to limit the number of horses that draw him— a deference, 1 believe, paid to the horse on account of the great service of that animal in war. Ancient poetry is full of beautiful descriptions of the horse prepared for battle: but as men became enlightened, the horse lost his trappings, and was made to labour and feed with the ox 5 and now, in this country at least, the use of the ox is ] almost, though unwisely, superseded. As the ox was habituated to labour before the inge- nuity of man was assisted by science, the implements made use of must necessarily have been rude ; but it is inexplicably singular, that the carts first invented have never been improved upon, or adapted to modern purposes. Elevate the sledge on which the Indians of America draw home the game they have killed, make the wheels larger, and the common cart is nearly com- plete. Ctesar speaks with approbation of the tumbrils of the Gauls, which differ from the cart in nothing but the shafts, these not being fastened to the body, but secured by a bolt, which, when removed, suffers the body of the cart lo fall back : besides this, 1 know of no mention of any improvement in the structure of carts; indeed, Ihey were invented for oxeu, and are adapted to the slow motions of that animal ; hut the horse loves speed, and should be accustomed to a machine suited to his disposition; in place of which, much attention has been paid to adapt the horse lo the old unwieldy cart. Great and unwieldy animals have been sought for, and the breed so much cultivated, that the physical powers of the animal have undergone a change ; it can no longer trot. or canter; if it can move forward at the rate of two miles an hour, it is all that is desired, and all that it can do: for such services the ox is sufficient. But although many horses are thus inactive, there are a great number that retain their natural activity, and for which it is desirable that appropriate carriages be constructed. About 60 years since, a mechanic at West Bromwich invented and applied springs lo car- riages ; before that period the gentleman's coach was iu construction a cart. When it was discovered thai the body of the coach being placed upon springs, greatly contributed to the ease of the traveller, the country adopted the plan, and carriages on springs became general. All travellers are not mathematicians, but many ate ; and these might have calculated what por- tion of the power exerted by the horse was spent in shaking the passengers in a cart. The proposition may appear ludicrous, yet it is most important; but a tra vciler, without the aid of mathematics, might have concluded, that if a horse could draw him in a chaise eight miles an hour, with more ease to itself than it could a cart five miles, it might draw merchandize with the same facility ; but the idea does not appear to have been entertained : it is that, therefore, which 1 now recommend to notice. It is unnecessary to appeal to arguments, because facts are before us. Some stage- coaches, drawn by four horses, have weighed near four tons; the weight, on ordinary occasions, is three tons: with this the horses travel six or eight miles an hour. The utmost weight of a broad wheeled waggon, wilh eight large unwieldy horses, is four tons; if the horses could take more, the turnpike laws on most roads forbid it; but experience has proved, that half a ton is all a heavy horse can draw an ordinary stage, on an ordinary road. The very ponderous cast- iron boilers, which are often seen upon our roads, are loaded upon balks of timber, the elasticity of the timber rendering the labour of the horses less, by acting as a spring. With this fact every skilful carter is acquainted 5 but it will not be denied, that a carriage with springs is drawn with less exertion of strength than one without. I wi h, therefore, to recommend the use of springs lo general purposes, not only in removing the more valuable, but every descrip- tion of moveable property, coals, sand, in short every thing, and for the following reasons*— First, the ex- pence is less ; a heavy waggon horse costs more money, and eats more corn, than a half- bred horse ; the average allowance to a waggon horse is four pecks of oats daily, to a stage- coach horse it is. biil two, and the work done by the coach horse is the greater; the man also is occupied less lime : for instance, suppose 1 wish a ton of coals to be taken ten miles, a man would deem it a full day's work with a cart; but the same man would drive a carriage upon springs, the samejlistan. ee, ant! Willi the spine weight, in a few hours ; so that a very important reduction may be made in Ihe price of carriage by this means, A second reason, and, in my estimation, by far the most important, is the reduction which the general application of the plan will occasion in the consumption if corn, hv the small horses eating less than the larger. A third reason is the improve- mentrwbich it wjll- occasion in the [ icisoiral comforts and moral habits of, the carters, as well as in the safety of travellers; the extreme irksomeness of attending a cart at Ihe slow rate at v/ hich > t moves, the length of time the attendants are exposed ill the most inclertjeiit weather, consign the office of a carter to the very lowest of the community, and confirms their condition. Every class must have employment, but it is not desirable, that the lowest class should have a conspicu- ous place, and one by w hich, from their drunkenness and incivility, travelling is abridged of its safety and pleasure. Place a man upon a dickey, let liie speed at which he drives be 4 or 5 miles nn hour, and a very considerable improvement will take place in the comfort, and, consequently, in the character of carters; the roads will no longer abound with carts without drivers, as is the case uow, hut every man must he at his post. Another important advaulage arising to the com- munity from placing carls upon springs, will be Ihe improvement which must follow in ihe~ sfale~ of the roads. The government of the country have bestowed very considerable attention on the high roads of the nation, lhat the public might be accommodated ; acts and regulations have succeeded each other as circum- stances called for them; but this legislative attention has wholly heen directed to Ihe roads and the wheels of the carriages— the broader the wheels, the less injury is supposed to be done the road ; and in proportion as the wheels have heen made broader, heavier horses have been used to draw them ; so that Ihe injury done the road has not been much lessened : but when springs shall be generally applied to carriages, the increased velocity with which tiiev will move, and the assistance the springs will afford iu passing over the irregularities in the surface of the road, will be so great a relief to Ihe roads, that a lessening of the tolls may be antici- pated; hut the vigilance of government must be shown in adapting the hwsto the dianges whicii may be made in the carriages. DISTRESSES IN GERMANY. To the LADIES of ENGLAND.— From the LADIES of GERMANY. Dresden, June 30, 1S14. With emotions of joy and gratitude, we have learnt from, the public Prints the formation of Committees of benevolent British Females, whose efforts are devoted to the alleviation of tbe Distresses of the Continent, and who in particular deeply sympathize in tbe forlorn state of ttie unfortunate Orphans of Saxony, which has had to sustain so severe a trial. Here, too, was formed a simitar Society, which is exclusively engaged in providing for these destitute little ones. Judge then, what must be our feelings, when we heard tbat our Sisters in England were making our most important concern their own.' With deep emotion we join them in tbe good work ; and approach them with tbe confidence which tbe christian senti- ment of Charity and Benevolence so easily inspires. Let us, then, frankly acquaint you with our Distresses, as well as with what has been done to relieve them ; and what we venture to solicit of our generous British Sisters. We need not repeat ho* grievously our Country ( in which the Emancipation of Europe has been achieved) has suffered from the war and its formidable train— Want and Famine— Disease and Misery— Devastation and Death! All this tbe public Papers have announced ; and we know that you can- not be strangers to the subject in general. We wish, however, that we could describe to you the individual Distress which surrounds us, tbe deplorable state of the children, who bave 1 > st father and mother, and every thing along with them ; and yet vve durst not give you a faithful picture of it, as it would wound your hearts too deeply. It is most painful to bear in what a state these children, particularly those of very tender age, have been found by those excellent men vvho feel theoi- selves called by God to seek out Misery in its most secret retreats. Tbey were, therefore, the fust to endeavour to alleviate their condition, and to invite all philanthropic Christians, both at hotne and abroad, to take compassion, agreeably to our Saviour's injunction, on these little ones.— They addressed themselves in particular to our sex, to whose care the children were especially committed, And God gave power to their voice : so that from all quarters came offers to take these orphans, and contributions for their suppoit. The Committee in London for relieving the Distresses occasioned by the War in Germany, has, in particular, exerted itself in our behalf; and gives us. hopes that it will do still more.— But in Saxony also, an excellent spirit was displayed ; and those, to whom Providence had preserved part of their pro- perty, cheerfully extended their aid to such as were left quite destitute. IN this manner about 200' children bave already been placed in families: and four small institutions, corre- sponding1 with our abilities at the time, have itseti erected, into which the Orphans are received till new parents can be found for thetn. One of these is at Dippoldiswalda, for Boys ; tile second at Grunberg, for Girls ; and the othei two at Pirna and Dresden, for Children of both sexes. So long as we can meet with families willing to receive out little ones into their midst, we have nothing more to vvish on ttieir account. But naturally this number must decrease more and more ; antl for this reason, because tbe Managers of these Institutions are unwilling to place any of the children out of tbeir depopulated native country, and their yet re- maining resources will be speedily exhausted. We are therefore, desirous of giving permanence to these Institutions, ( a' least to one of them), that the Orphans: who cannot be otherwise provided . for, may be there received, educated, aud supported, till they shall be able to earn tbeir own living. To you, then, beloved Sisters, we turn, and mtreat you to devote ty this object tbe bounty which you may have destined for our poor Infants. We will gladly transmit to you an ac count of its application, and punctually follow every direction that you may give respecting it. Encouraged bv your co operation, wb shall exert ourselves the more cheerfully ; and God, who blesses whatever is done for his sake, will not fail to prosper the sisterly Covenant in which we are united.

Mungo Park,— Doubts lift ye again arisen respecting the fate of th is celebrated traveller, founded upon a letter Veceived by Mr. R. Mitford, ofthe Audit Office, . S » njerset- place, from Mr. Court, of Mojadore, dated May 15, 1814; of which the following is'an extract: " A Moor, arrived this day from Houssa, informed me, that, wilh a large caravan, with which he left TumbuctoO, there were three Christians, who have been many yeais in tbe interior of Africa; that be travelled in company with them six days, end separated from them about 70 day's since, the caravan taking the route to Tuarf, and himself, with a part of it, to Totta ; that tbe ear'aVan would probably go near Tunis or Algiers. That the ibree persons appeared above tbe class of sailors, and were hot slaves, but free to go with the caravan as theother travellers were; they bad with them some papeis, writings, and drawings.— These people, the Moor says, went up the Nile or Niger, in a small vessel, and Were stopped ; that originally their number was much « reater, but thev had died at Houssa, or elsewhere ; and that the King, or principal man, at Houssa, had put the three Christians under the pn - tection of a person of note in tbe caravan, with directions to take them to Tombnctoo, and from thence to semi them bv some caravan, so that they might, reach their own conntrv. This account is extraordinary, as till enquiry about Mr. Patk has long_ ceased here. The mail coold have no possible mo- tive fur inventing such a story; anil if he did invent it, it is remarkable tbat be should invent a story so nearly describing,- in many particulars, Mr. Park and his companions." When Mr. James Grey Jackson returned to this country from Morocco, about seven years since, he reported to the Earl of Moira and Sir Joseph Bankes, on the authority of an Arabic letter, which was written from Kabra, the port of Tombuctoo, by a liberated negro, to his former master, a Moorish merchant, then residing at Mogadore, that a small vessel or boat had anchored before Kabra, in the river ( Ibe Nile of Abeede), and that this vessel or boat had hoisted white flag; that there was seen in the boat, by tl. e inhabitants of Kabra, three Christians, one of whom was described as a very tall man, who stood up in the boat, which remained before the port of Kabra until night; but the next morning nothing more was seen of it. This boat had, as Mr. Jackson reported, 110 com- munication with the shore, but it was presumed that it had passed on to the eastward, towards Houssa !— From the remarkable coincidence of these accounts, after such a lapse of time, there is reason lo hope, that the three Christians meutioned in the letter from Mogadore, are the same with those mentioned in Mr. Jackson's report, and that they are no other than Mr. M lingo Park and two of his surviving companions. The Clergy.— The present state of our venerable Church Establishment is indicated by two of those official documents for which the public are indebted to the vigilance of Parliament. By an abstract of the non- resident incumbents and resident incumbents, laid before the House of Lords, for the year 1812, it appears lhat at this time there ppertain to our Church Estab- lishment 10,582 benefices, including 133 dignities; that of these, 5,100 are lion resident, and 5,482 are resident. That of these, 1964 reside on other benefices; 382 are infirm ; and 1,120 want a parsonage- house. The non- residents without leave are 746, ol whom there are 221 in St. David's, and 93 in Exeter. The dioceses, iu re- gard to their size, contain— Lincoln, 1,252 benefices; Norwich, 1,080; York. S30; Lichfield, 677; Exeter, 610; London and Ches'er respectively, 5S6 and 585 ; the others fewer ; and Rochester but 107. In Carlisle, Chester, London, Peterborough, and York, the residents exceed the non- res dents i and m Bristol they are 131 each ; but the non- residents are to the residents in St. David's nearly as 8 to 1 ; in Bangor as 4 to 1 ;. and 111 Llandaffas 7 to 1 ; owing, as may be supposed, to the poverty of tiie benefices; though in Lichfield and Lincoln they are also as 2 lo I,— By another of these documents, made up to January 1st, 1813, there were 3,926 curates, 59 of, whom received but £ 10 per annum; 217, hilt jr. 20; 679, £ 30; 683, £ 40; 517, £ 50; 1,001, from D. 60 to'£' 100; and only 40 above £ 100. . _ , , . : The Scriptures.— From a return made lo th © House of Commons relative to the 8' ritish Muse'iuu, if'appeacs that the utility of having a perfect fac- suutie of so much of the Codex Alexandrinus, deposited in the MCtseitm, as comprises Ihe Old Testament, in consequence of the gradual decay of this ancient manuscript, by the ravages of time, is strongly urged by the principal dignitaries of the church-, and ihe heads of colleges and professors of divinity in Oxford and Cambridge. A fac simile of the pari containing the New Testamenl, was accom- plished hy Dr. Woide in the year 1786. lt is staled that the Rev. Ilenry Hervey liaber, the keeper of the printed books itithe British Museum, vyill undertake to complete one of the Old Testament in nine years. The expence of printing 250 copies of the manuscript wi I her £ 7339. 17s. 6d. Mr. Baber has already published a fac simile of the Book of Psalms. The Alexandrian manuscript is, with the exception of the Vatican Codex, now in the National Library at Paris, the most ancient copy, by many centuries, of the Sacred Scriptures.— After having been the revered treasure of the Greek Church for several hundred jears, it was, 111 1628, pre- sented by Cyril Lucar, the Patriarch of Constantinople, to King Charlies the First, to preserve it from the jealous fury ot Mahometan superstition. Ten years after, the learned and pious donor was slrangled by order of the Turkish Government, in consequence of a misrepresentation of his zealous efforts to reform the discipline of the Greek Church. The prophet Brothers, who has been confined as a lunatic for a length of time, is so far recovered as to he allowed the enjoyment of his liberty. He expresses much regret that his prophetic writings, the produc tions of an insane mind, were ever circulated. We are informed that many foreigners are travelling in this kingdom, to obtain a knowledge of our manu- factories, and that they have in many cases been suc- cessful : in some towns, however, they have on all stiles met with disappointment, as il was discovered that mere curiosity was not their sole object. It is said to be in contemplation, generally to adopt similar resolutions iu this town, which is a place of the first importance to them, from the multiplicity of machinery in use,; and we sincerely hope, for the general welfare of all classes, lhat no recommendation or introduction whatever will, 011 any consideration, cause admittance to be obtained into any of our manufactories.— Hirm- iiighani ( hronicle. It is a disagreeable task to notice how much the French artists are exhibiting proofs of their superiority over 11s. There has lately arrived a ship load of wicker baskets, so much beyond any thing that has been done in this country, and so much cheaper, that they were in- stantly sold as soon as they were seeniu the market. British Prisoners.— The friends of many English- men, who have been prisoners in France, have been much alarmed that they have not returned home, lt may, however, be consolatory to know, that there is every reason to believe that all the British prisoners have been set a't liberty ; but their liberation was attended with great difficulty. Many have been march- ed to the Mediterranean sea, and their embarkation to this country has been attended with considerable delay ; and a greitt number still remain in the hospitals, haviiig fallen sick, through the severe orders issued by Bona- parte, in forcing them from prison lo prison, during very inclement weather, on the approach of the British. Many of the prisoners died 011 the road, the names of whom have not yet reached this country, as the French Government has not furnished any returns respecting British prisoners since the end of September ; but they are expected speedily at the proper Office iu this country. Royal Humane Society.— It is a melancholy fact that at the last monthly Meeting of the Committee of this Society, 110 less than 33 cases which occurred during the preceding month were presented, to Iheir notice, but it is extremely interesting and satisfactory to learn that in 28 instances the means recommended by this truly valuable institution had been successful in restoring Life to the apparent dead.— Three of the cases were attempted suicides— two by drowning and one by hanging— all of whom were fortunately not only rescued from untimely deaths, but also convinced of the rashness and depravity of such attempts, and are now continuing their respective stations in Society. Two cases from noxious air, occasioned by an impru- dent descent into a well before the smoke from some ignited straw, which unnecessarily had been put down, had dispersed.— The remaining 28 cases were from submersion in water, consisting chiefly of young boys, who had imprudently ventured into deep ponds antl rivers without the ability to swim. No less than 50 claimants were rewarded for their meritorious exertions for Ihe preservation of life. It is a melancholy but remarkable fact, that there is now living, in Bramley, near Leeds, a poor man named William Waterhouse, who, and four of his children, have had legs and arms broken and out of joint 73 separate times. The father, who is only 45 years of age, has had his legs and arms broken 13 times, and 3 times dislocated ; the eldest boy, 11 years old, has had his arms and legs broken 20 times, and 5 times out of joint. lie had two children ( now dead), one of which had legs and arms fractured 14 times, and 3 times out of joint; the other 5 times broken, and once out of joint. He has a little girl, now only four years and a half old, who has at present her arm in slings of the ninth fractured limb. All the above accidents ( except the father's) have happened within the last ten years. Pedestrian! sm,— A coachman named Kq, Bible, of Armathwaife Castle, undertook, on the 26th ult, to run from the Castle gale to the George Inn, Penritll, a distance of eleven miles, chiefly tip- hill road, in an hour and three- quarters, which he performed vufli great ease iu less lhan an hour and a half Several footmen, who had taken a considerable start of him, attempted to accompany him as he came up, but without success; and of five horsemen, who mounted on the occasion, two only went in with him. One glass of wine was Ihe only refreshment he took, and so liltle was be ex- hausted; Ihal he performed Ihe ia, t mile in four minutes and a half. The London Subscription Coach, which usually arrives in Exeter at eight o'clock iu the evening, came in on Friday last at twelve at 110011, with nine pas- sengers, besides the coachman, guard, and upwards of 5 cwt, of luggage. A considerable bet was slaked that the Subscription Coach could not perform the journey from London to Exeter in 19 hours; but extraordinary to say, il completed the distance ( 164 miles), in 18 hours and 55 minutes, including 20 minutes allowed for breakfast! A nice Point in Religion.— The Jewish laws prohi- bit the breaking of a seal 011 the Sabbath, but Nathan, who is a great Bull, could not trust the Omnium 011 Saturday without watching it; and was seen whilst standing on Ihe Stock Exchange steps, lo open a letter that was brought him. O11 being for violating the Sabbath in breaking a seal, Nathan justified himself by declaring the letter was only wafer id. FA/ rs, 5fc.— At MAGBALEN HILL, WINCHESTER, a numerous show of French cows, which fetched from £ S to £ 12, a fair show of horses, w hich had a dull sale, and a very declining price. Cheese full 14s. per cwt,, cheaper lhan last year.— Large importations of cattle, have arrived at SOUTHAMPTON from France during the week ; and French beef, mutton, and lamb, have been selling at 6,1. and 7d. per lb. The Sceptre of Peace, which was lately discovered by the Keeper of the Regalia, having been thoroughly » • repaired and restored to its ancient Splendour, is now deposited in the Tower with' the rest of the royal jewels. Front the antique style of its ornaments, it is judged to be coeval with the Crown which was worn by Edward the Confessor. For the words Napo'eon Emperor des Francais, the following remarkable anagram has been found: " Un Pope serf a sacre le noir demon." An enslaved Pope has consecrated a black demon. Carolina Criminal Code.— At the last May sessions in Charleston, J. H lit ton, for kilting a Negro, was fined £ 50 ; and G. Burrows and R. Welsh, for JVegro- sleuling, were sentenced to be hanged !!! IN the shop of Benjamin Dixon, blacksmith at Egre- mont, Scotland, there is the bull of an ash tree, upon which the anvil has stood, and been worked upon for jipwards of twelve years. The outside nppears to be quite rotten ; but in the course of this summer, twelve branches have sprung from it, which at this time are full of leaves, and seemingly iu the most healthy • Condition. Remarkable Instance of Sagacity in a Dog.- A correspondent, in a letter addressed to the Editor of The Sporting Magazine, last month, states the follow- ing most remarkable instance of the sagacity ol' this animal:— " Air. Douce, of Kampstead ( Cryer of the Court cf King's Bench, in Lord Mansfield's time), had a favourite pointer, whose fore- ley, in jumping agate, was broken. Unwilling to lose him, Mr. D. took him to bis friend, a surgeon at Mill - bill, w'ho set the leg, and put ton the proper bandage, and about once a week Mr. D. went with Cato to tbe slirgeoii's to have tbe leg inspected. After continuing so to do for a time, the surgeon one day informed htm, that he. need not take the trouble of Walking there with Cato, for that Cato. frequently came by himself to have tiis leg looked to, arid continued to do so till his leg was well. Some time after tiie leg was cured, tbe surgeon one morning, while at break- fast in a room behind his shop, saw Cato jump the half- door, ant) observed to his wife, that bis old frieud was come to see him. The dog approached, and shewed signs to the surgeon that be wunted the door opened'; on going to which the surgeon found that Cato had brought, him a patient which be bad picked up, a poor terrier with a broken teg ! The fa'et is well known at Hamps'ead and Mill- hill. I have often heard Mr. Douce tell tbe story, and pledge his honour to the truth of it; but 1 have forgotten tho surgeon's name."

Robbery.— On the 15th of May last the Hertford coach vvas robbed of a paicel, containing notes aud bills ko the amount of £ 5000, from tbe bank of Messrs. Christie and Co. in Hertfoid. to Messrs. Haul- bottom, their agents in London. Shortly alter the robbery, the bills iliat were not negociable, to the amount of £ 2800, were returned bv the robber to Messrs. Christie. Diligent inquiries we„ re made as to whom the passengers were, and oue of them vvas stionglv suspected to be W. Cooke, a iv ell known character; a reword of £ 100 was, in consequence, offered for his ap ptehension, but in vain, ltwas, however, ascertained within these few days tbat be was ut Yai mouth, and that be was to leave, ttiere on Sunday by tbe Telegraph coach: and, in consequence, Vickerv. Lavender, and Bishop left London on Sunday morning, and proceeded as far as the Whalebone- turnpike, near Romford, where, in the evening, the coach drove up, and tlie officers having previously arranged with the gatekeeper, the gate was fastened.— Viekery and Laven- der were concealed, being known ; and Bishop went to the coach on its stopping, and observing Cooke 011 the roof, ordered h'tn to come down, which lie complied with ; and Vickerv an i Lavender then appearing, he W3S secured and taken to town in a post- chaise. On Monday he underwent an examination, when Mr. Christie attended, and proved the robbery.— He was committed for further . examination. i IF. T those who are afflicted in the following manner reflect ^ on the cause that produced such havoc upon the " whole. some appetites and powers of life:"— disordered stomach, dry cough, weakness in the voice, hoarseness, shortness of breath upon llie least exercise, and relaxation of the whole system.
