KREBS, Oculist, being fully enabled to cure all. Diseases of the Eves ( if curable), proposes to be consulted ot bis House, in HANMER, every MONDAY ; the other Days he will be at Liberty to attend Patients at their own Houses where required; and as he can with Confidence recommend his Method of treating Diseases ofthe Eyes, not as a bold Expedient, or one of Uncertainty, but as a known and lung- established Remedy, the Result » f experienced Success, his Ancestors having been in Possession of the Receipts above a Century, and practised with unrivalled Success, a Remedy so universally safe and efficacious, even when applied to Infants of the most tender Age ; and altlio' the Public are already in Possession of the most ample Evidence, and numerous Facts of Cures which have yielded to his COLLYRIUMS, after every other Method had been tried in vain, still the following well authenticated Cases may i serve to increase tbe Confidence of the. most doubtful; and having met with such peculiar Success in the Treatment of Diseases of the Eves, which had baffled Men of considerable 1 Eminence in the Medical Profession, Mr. K. flatters himself j that those Patients who chuse to employ him will not be j disappointed. I ANN LLOYD, Mantua- maker, Willow- Street, Oswestry, , vvas afflicted with a Chronic Ophthalmy for several Months, I during which Time my Eye- lids were so relaxed, and my F. yea so irritable, that i could not follow my Business, and J v. as in Danger of losing iny Sight. I made Use of a Variety of Applications ( recommended by the Faculty) without Re- lief. 1 applied to Mr. KRF. BS, at Hanmer, and have coir- • ileatlv recovered my Sight, being enabled constantly to follow my Business, and work at iny Needle. During the Time I was under the Doctor's Core, I daily becamo better, nnd the Weakness of my Eyes ( which nearly amounted to Blindness) is entirely removed. As Witness tnv Hand, ANN LLOYD. Witness to the above Cure JOHN LLOYD, her Father. WE, the undersigned Inhabitants of the Township of Peck- forton, in the Parish of Banbury, and County of Chester, DO HEREBY CERTIFY that JAMES FOXLEY, living with Mr. Charles Matnpson, was afflicted with a Scrofulous Ophthalmy, which threatened to deprive him of bis Sight. He applied to the Faculty without Relief, until he applied to Dr. KREBS, who has perfectly restored his Sight, and Ihe Scrofuluus Symp- toms are entirely removed. As Witness our Hands, CHARI. ES HAMPSOS, JOHN JONES. I LUXE CLAY, Blacksmith, of Welsh Hampton, near Eltes- mere, Shropshire, DO HEREBY CERTIFY, that in Ap il, 1810, a Spark of Fire flew into my left Eye ( when at Work), which I gave tne great. Pain : a violent Inflammation amPHumour in i both Eyes followed, which disabled me from woiking at my j Ttade; a Skin overspread one Eye, and deprived me of the Sight nf it; ihe other was so weak and dim, that I daily j feared the loss of both ; when in this deplorable State, I was j recommended to Mr. KREBS, Oculist, at Hanmer, who per- formed four Operations on my Eyes, and has made a perfect Cure, which I cannot in Humanity to the Afflicted with- hold publishing. As Witness mv Hand, LUKE CLAY, late Invalid. The Truth of the above extraordinary Cure is perfectly well known to the following respectable Neighbours: THOMAS PHILLIES, JOHN PAY, EDWARD WHITE, and JOHN " WILLIAM. A Child of mine had the Misfortune, when only two Years old, to strike the Point of a Thatch Stick in his Eve, which " g ive him excruciating Pain, followed by violent Inflamma- tion and swelling. Notwithstanding our utmost Endeavours to relieve him, by Poultices, F. ye- Watcrs, & c. his Disorder daily increased, and a Skin formed over the whole Eye; the other so very weak lie could not bear the Light. I was advised to apply to Mr. KREBS, who soon relieved him, and to our great Jov has made 9 perfect Cure of him. It is now upwards nf three Years ago, and lie has not experienced the least Relapse. As Witness my [ land, JOHN DAVIES. Tins IR, TO CERTIFY, ' hat my Son laboured under a Severn Inflammation in his Eve for some Time, which 1 feared would deprive him of the Sight cf it, as he could get no Relief till he applied to Mr. KREBS, who has made a perfect Cure in one Month.

GEORGE HARRIS, Sou of Mrs. Harris, of Longsluw, neur Market Dravton, Salop, was afflicted with a severe Inflam- mation in tiie Eye, and Opacity that nearly coveted the Pupil and rendered it useless. No method that bad been recommended, was able to procure the least Relief, resisting various Plans of Treatment, until bis Mother put him under the Care i f Mr. K'RERS, by whose Mode the Boy perfectly recovered his Sight, and can plainly see the smallest Objects, Witness lo ihe above Mrs. HARRIS, of Lumford. In the Autumn of last Year, my Sou EDWARD iras afflicted with a severe acute Ophthihny, which, rapidly increasing, soon overspread his Eye with a thick Skin, attended with violent Pain and great Heaviness iu his Head, which soon deprived him of the Sight of that Eye, and the other daily becoming weaker, 1 feared the total Loss of both. I had recourse to different Applications, but without Relief, till fortunately 1 was recommended to Mr. KREBS, of Honmer, who a'tended him at my House, anil has made a perfect Cure of him ; the Truth of which 1 am willing to go a Hundred Miles to attest, if required.

HUGHES was afflicted with violent Pain, Inflammation, and strong Hu- mour in his right Eye, which brought on a large Skin, and deprived him of the Sight of il; the other Eye was so much affected, that he was in danger of losing it. Every thing that is usually done on tliese Occasions was done for him, by the Medical Men who attended him ; hut to no Purpose, as his Disorder continued to increase with unabated Violence; when hearing of the many Cures performed by Mr. KREBS, and being strongly recommended to put hiin under his Cate, I sent for him lo my House, where he attended him, and I liaise the inexpressible Satisfaction lo say, has made a perfect Cure; the Truth of which I am willing to attest.

ANN, Daughter if Samuel Davies, of Marchwiel, near Wrexham, Denbighshire, was afflicted with a severe acute Ophlhalmy in botli Eyes for the space of 12 Months, to so great a degree, that when she applied to Mr. KRESS her eyes Sieht even to Old Age, aud when had recourse to at tile commencement of a Disease, seldom fail to put a stop to its progress, the Parties frequently finding Relief from the first application. They are also successfully employed for the Removal of all Specks or Skins situated upon the transparent Cornea of the Eve, whether arising from previous Inflam- mation, or any other cause.

The formal opening of the Congress u ill therefore be adjourned tu the 1st of November," and flie 0 13 I aforesaid Plenipotentiaries flatter themselves that the 1 30 e"? "'' ic" llle intervening period shall be devotedj by fixing ideas and conciliating opinions, will essentially advance the great work which is ihe object of their common mission, Vienna, October 8,1814. The Moniteur subjoins the following remarks: " The preceding declaration, in exposing the motives which have caused the opening ofthe Congress of Vienna to be deferred, is the first proof of the spirit of wisdom lhat shall direct the labours of the assembled Plenipotentiaries, it, is, indeed by the maturity of councils, and amidst the calm of the passions, lhat Ihe tutelary authority of the principles of public Itm, invoked and re- organised in th4 last Treaty of Paiis, must spring up anew. " Thus the just expectations of Contemporaries will be fulfilled, and a result conformable to what the rights of nations, and the universal law of justice prescribes to nations reciprocally, will be obtained in the approaching Negotiations. " " At an epoch when the great Powers have leagued for the purpose of introducing again into the mutual relations of States respect for property and tlje security of thrones only political transactions, cluathed with this equitable character, are to be expected. " Europe already accepts this happy omen ; nnd France who is not jealous of any advantages which other states can reasonably expect, only aspires to Ihc re- establishment of a just equilibrium. Possessing within herself all the ele- ments uf strength and prosperity, she does not seek for them beyond her own limits: she does not lend her ear lo any insinuation tending to establish systems of simple convenience; and, resuming the part which formerly procured her the esteem nnd gratitude of nations, she is ambitious of 110 olher glory, but that which rests upon the union of force with moderation and justice ; she is willing to become once more the support of the weak, and Die defender of the oppressed.

Tlic. se successes induced the American General commanding the district to offer his submission, and to engage that the Milit ia should not serve against this country during the war. Thus the result ofthe operations conducted hv" Col. Pilkingtun has been lo wrest" from the United States Ihe whole of Ihc counly of Washington, part of which is inter- posed between New Brunswick and Lower Canada, and which has about one hundred miles of sea coast. Several millions ol' buck- shot are shipping at Ports- mouth, in the Leonidas frigate, Capt. W. King, for America. This description of shot has been in common use with the Americans in Ihe present war, and the mangling wounds they inflict are found ( when not attended with dealtO so to protract the recovery of our soldiers, that their services are lost to the army for a considerable lime. The formation ofthe weapon is— a large shot at the bottom ofa cartridge resting upon Ihree small ones ; and these four shot are fired off wilb the usual quantity of powder. The Americans always use them iu wild- fowl shooting, which amusement being universally practised by Ihem from their earliest years, makes Ihem the expert and dangerous rifle troops they arc. England has to mourn Ihc loss of a Ross by such hands.— Orders have also arrived al Portsmouth for tiie immediate shipment, on board ships of war and trans- ports, of 10,000 stand of arms, willi very large quantities of ammunition of different kinds, destined for America.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27. There is a report, that the Chancellor of the Ex- chequer intends to propose a continuation of the Income Tax, at half ils present amount, for ten years! That Ihe Income ' Fax may he now reduced to five per cent, is probable; hut that any Chancellor of Ihe Exchequer should think of continuing it for ten veers of expected peace we can scarcely think possible. This tax, and Ihe cheerfulness l, 2U0 j with which il was endured, constituted the sinews of oui 1,000 ! financial strength in the. iate war. To retain the pussibilil y of imposing il again, wilh a reasonable prospect of the same endurance, is highly desirable ; but, for lhat purpose the faith of government must be strictly kept, that the Public, in other wars, may never suspect any thing to lie intended, mure than what is openly proposed. Supposiii" Peace to he shortly made wilh America, the proposal to continue the tax, for ten years, nt five per cent, would be the same thing as asking for a confiscation of half Ihe property of Ihe nation, to repel 110 danger, to provide for 110 neccessary expense. Opposition, we doubt uot, would be heartily glad to see the Minister iu time of peace ami- cipating t he evils of war, and throwing away the probability of future confidence, loyalty, nnd strenglh. Al I lie same time, there mavhe Ihose among the friends ofa Minister who would suggest this to him under the flattering deno- mination of a vigorous measure. It would be such" to be sure; but does vigour necessarily imply wisdom? May there not he vigour m destroying, as well" as in improving ; vigour in unnecessarily offending; vigour in turning loyally into disgust? ™ Joseph Bonaparte is 011 the point of purchasing a fine estate of the Duke of Sermoiietln, near Rome • il ij valued at 400,000 Roman crowns— cash down ! It is stated, on the authority of letters from Cadiz, that a pecuniary accommodation, lo meet the press in'' necessities of the Spanish Government is to lie granted by Britain, in consideration of some extenuation ofthe pro- hibitory order respecting our cut ton manufactures.— On 11 comparison of this with the foregoing paragraph, we are led to suppose, that the Ex- King Joe formerly made some use of the Spanish Treasury. The accounts from Spain speak of disturbances nt Badajos and different parts of Estreuuidura. Oil the other band, the insurrection of the Minas is said to he completely suppressed. The two Chiefs of lhat name have made their escapc into France, anil some letters add, that they have been sent under 1111 escort lo Paris. The Governor of Pairpeluua put a price upon their heads. The accounts from Madrid state, that King Charles and the Queen arc determined to remain at Rome. King Ferdinaud had de- manded of the Pope that the Prince of the Peace should be delivered tip to him to he tried iu Spain. King Charles opposed the demand, and Ihe Pope in consequence declined complying with it, but offered to detain the Prince at Pesaro, aud have him watched. LONDON.

The Gazette of this evening: announces the appoint- ment ofthe Right Hon. George Canning to be Ambassador Extraordinary to the Prince Regent of Portugal, and L. D. Cassamajor, Esq. tu be Secretary to the Embassy. Paris Papers of Tuesday and Wednesday Inst were received this morning. They contain divers speculations, but no certain intelligence, relative to the Congress at Vienna. The secret conferences continue, but nothing transpires, and hence the reports are of the most contra- dictory nature, ll is supposed, thai Lord Cas! lereagh\ « ? presence being necessary iu Parliament, the principal conferences will have terminated time enough to suffer his lordship to be here hy the opening of Ihe session. Bui no such expectation is entertained by Ministers here, though it was reported last night that the Congress w? » s to be adjourned till January, and that in the mean time Lord Castlereagh would pay a visit to this country, and Talley- rand return to Paris. Tho Duchess of Orleans £ ave birth to a Prince on the 25tli ; au event which may be said to strengthen the Bourbon dynasty, by furnishing an heir in remainder of a new generation. The private letters from Paris inform us, nnd we have no doubt accurately, that llie British disasters in the Ciiuadas have produced a very deep impression in that city. The exultation manifested at our humiliation is not « o visible amongst the King's immediate friends, as amongst the French people in general, and the army. Thcgronpes of politicians and other idlers in Paris, received Ihe in- telligence of of our defeat on Lake. Cliamphun, not merely v ith ordinary j< „, but, in many instances, with repeated cheers ! The accounts from Madrid are still gloomy. Arrests continue, and the spirit of discontent has broken out in several provinces* It is reported, 011 the authority x> f a private corre- spondence from America, that a new basis for a Treaty of Pence with this country has been agreed upon between the Federalists and tVTadisou^ s party, on the rejection of which by this country the Federalists have promised their utmost support in the prosecution of Ihe war. Ttie arrival of dis- patches, in answer to those which went out by the John Adams, will bring the new proposition, and the Americans are very sanguine with respect to the tin 11 which is likely to he given to the negociations at Ghent in consequence. We understand that orders have been this day sent to tlie WarwOflice, directing that Ihe troops which are cmbaiked for America, should proceed lo sea as soon as possible, that Ihe shipment of those which are under orders for embarkation for the same service, should be accelerated a « much as possible, and that an additional force should he provided to be employed in the western war. In addition, we learn, that instructions have been given for the (' loathing oflhe 2d battalions, a Considerable portion of which is to he engaged in these remote duties.— Directions have also been given for the re- enlistment of soldiers, whose periods of services have expired. It is further said, that'the whole of our " disposable force will be sent to America without loss of time, and lhat Sir George Prevosl a" d other senior officers are ordered home.

Jmerica.— A copy of the President's Message to Congress, de livered on the '* oth ult has been received. The result of the late affairs in Canada has given new life to ' lie American Government, and Mr. Madison speaks in a tone most decidedly hostile. Want of room compels us to epitomize this document, which is of considerable length, but we believe the following will be found to contain the substance ofi'. We need not point out to our readers Ihe exaggerations and mis- statements of Mr. Madison; they are too apparent to escape Ihe eye or memory of the attentive render, tho* necessarily st) much contracted :— Mr. Madison commences by observing, that, although, DIED.

His benevolent disposition and upright conduct through life, render his loss deeply regretted by liis family and a numerous circle of friends. (> 11 Monday night, the 24lh ult. at Bala, Mrs. Charles, aged 60 \ ears, relict of Ihe Rev. Thomas Charles, whose death we announced on the 12th ult. She had, for the last thirty years, carried yn an extensive business, from which she has lately retired, after realizing an independence; and it washy Ihe industry of this excellent woman, that Mr. Charles was enabled to devote his ministerial labours gra- tuitously., iu both North aud South Wale8. On Monday, the loth nil. in the 6ist year of liis age, Mr. John Jones, cheese factor, Holywell.

It is worthy of remark that he served in the regiment of Derby Blues, commanded by hisGrace the Duke of Devon- shite in the year 1J45, and is supposed to have been the last survivor of t list regiment* On the 20th ult. at Paris, the celebrated equestrian, Mr. Astley, of ihe Amphitheatre, London, aged 75. His dis- order was thc gout in the stomach. He was in early life a private in the Dragoons, and was distinguished for gal- lantry and knowledge of his profession. Soon after a Mv. Price came forward with the novel entertainment of horse- manship, which he exhibited at Islington, and from which he was able to retire with a moderate fortune. Mr. Astl- ey attracted public notice by the same entertainments, which he performed in St. George's Fields. He was one of the handsomest men in figure and countenance that has ever been seen. By talents, enterprise, and prudence, he gradually acquired considerable property, erected several theatres in this country, Ireland, and France, as well as many houses in Lambeth ; and a fexv years ago resigned all his public concerns to his son, to whom, and to his family he has no doubt left a valuable inheritance.

On reconsidering the statement we gave of the pro- ceedings at the General Board of. Trustees at our Infirmary on Wednesday, the lQlh of October, we are aware that motives are attributed to the gentleman who moved the resolutions, hy which we believe he was not actuated. It is known to many, that th; H gentleman has long held opinions in unison with thos.- resolutions, and he embraced the first opportunity that offered of publicly avowing them, which he was particularly induced to do at that time, in c. onscqueucc of the question being brought forward by so respectable a board of Directors. tbe P. arl of Denbigh is admitted of iseount Weymouth ( son of the Mar- admitted of Si. John's College, Cambridge. The Rev W. Allen, M. A. head- master of Bolton School, is preferred to the Living of Peel, Lancashire, on tlie presentation ofthe Right Hon. Lord Kenyon. R.

States,— Mr. Madi- son then proceeds to describe this spirit as Ihe effect of in- toxication from our lale successes against Bonaparte, and as arising from our hopes of further aggrandizement. He ! were ' on Friday last re- elected Bailiffs ofthe town then draws a parallel of Ihe laic campaigns 111 America: [ Ellesmere. against our successes al Washington and Alexandria, he places the triumphs of the Americans in Canada ( dwelling particularly on the late affairs of Plattsburgh and the . to take up without delay this subject, School.— I hat the animated and eloquent appeals ofthe he. military force, whirl, must be in- preacher to the christian benevolence ot a numerous and : nnes them to prosecute the war on a I J'MpcclaWe audience were not w ithout effect, was evinced with the extent and character it has •'>' , l, e very handsome collection of 144. 5s. 4^ d. tor sup- Lakes) and. over the Indians on their southern frontier— the retreat from Baltimore— recent treaties of alliance with several tribes of Indians— and the annoyance of our com- merce by American cruisers; of course, he strikes a balance considerably in his own favour. Mr. Madison next draws the attention of Congress to the public expenditure, the vast increase of which ( having far exceeded the proceeds of the several branches of revenue) demands immediate at- tention; urges them « s well as that of the creased ; and importu scale commensurate w now assumed, and Ihe vast means possessed by the Power they have lo contend wilh.— In conclusion lie calls upon the population of the United Slates to second in the most decided manner the views of tlicit Government ; charges this country not only with being the aggressor in the present war, but with persisting in it, upon llie most unjust grounds, white the American Government has sought nothing but reconciliation and to prevent the effusion'of b'nnd; and stales ihe determination of the Government of 1 he United States, « o lo piosecule the war as to entertain au undiminished disposition towards peace and friendship on honourable terms. The latter sentence, derived from thc President's Mes- sage, deserves remark, as it is obvious, that by the phrase honourable terms," he means the concession on our part of the dearest privileges and best interests of Britons. We trust, however, that firmness which has hitherto distin- guished our Government, will not now forsake our councils ; aud that Ihe prompt and vigorous measures uow sel on f. xit, will be so executed as to haVe I he effec t of bringing down the haughty tone of our adversary, and of reducing to their original nothingness the bloated hopes of his mali- cious supporters. Till this is done, no peace worthy our national character can be obtained The Ministers of thc Allied Powers, Russia, Austria, Great Britain, and Prussia, are said to have replied, 011 the 71 h, tothe note delivered to them by M. Talleyrand on the 4th. But nothing has transpired either with respect to that note or the reply. The Paris Papers of Wednesday and Thursday have h ' en received. They porsess little genuine interest. They contain, however, a number of vague, hazardous, contra- dictory, or mischievous paragraphs, respecting the Negoci- ations at Vienna, which deserve uo credit, and only demand our attention from the motive with which they are com- posed. That motive is to create difficulties, delay, and con- fusion, in the proceedings, as well as to gratify the morbid appetite of the French nation for political disorders and sanguinary scenes. A body of Marine Officers have been suddenly order- John Bcynon, Esq. solicitor, of Newcastle Emlyn, has been appointed, by the Lord Lieutenant ofthe County of Cardigan, Clerk of the Peace for the said county, iu the room of Herbert Lloyd, Esq. deceased.

Two sermons were preached < m Sunday last al St, John's Chapel, in this town, by the Rev. W. H. Loxdale Eden, for the benefit of the Shrewsbury General Sunday porting the Institution during thc ensuing year. A new chapel, in the Wesleyau connection, was last week opened at Tewkesbury; and so general was the anx- j icty to hear the celebrated aud learned Rev. Dr. Adam ! Clarke, that the building was crowded to excess. The con- i tributions of the congregation amounted to nearly £ 145 Oa Wednesday last, Richard Cross, wnggoner to Mr. Charles Cross, of Cruckton Mill, was Convicted before Rich- ard Phillips, Esq. Mayor of this town and liberties, of riding on the shafts of his Master's waggon, not having any person on foot or on horseback to guide the same, on the turnpike road leading from this town to Han wood, and was fined ten shillings, agreeably to the statute for regulating the turnpike roads. On Friday last, several young' men were examined before Richard Phillips, Esq. charged with having I rokeu windows, and, by their disorderly conduct, otherwise dis- turbed the peace of the town : some of them were bound over for their appearance at- the next sessions to answer to the complaint. We nre gratified to find that it is the deter- mination of Ihe magistrates to punish offenders of this description with I lit utmost rigour; and we trust this notice will deter all persons from pursuing aline of conduct so injurious to t he comfort and welfare of the inhabitants, aod so disgraceful to themselves. Caution.— We understand lirat a person is going about, endeavouring to impose 011 the public by soliciting money , for the relief of widow Jones, whose husband was unfortunately - killed by the falling in of a well, near Whit- tington, in September last :— The public are, therefore, requested to wituhold their donations from such persons, no one being authorised to receive benefactions on her behalf, in this town, except at the Bank of Messrs. Scott, Burton, and Co. Yesterday, Lieut.

Yhursdav) met together on Monday, for the purpose of considering of I he best means of testifying their respect for his lordship and their sense of the eminent services he had rendered to his country when a Committee of management was formed, and a subscription immediately commenced for purchasing a fat ox, bread, and ale, to rcgaie the populace, which speedily exceeded the requisite sum: it was also determined that a deputation should wait 011 his lordship at Hardwick, to thank him, in the name of'the inhabitants of Ellesmere, for bis exeitioris'in the late content ; and that every other method should be taken to evince their jo. on this occasion. The morning of Tuesday was accordingly ushered in with the ringing of heils; aud about 4 o'clock lhat. afternoon his lordship passed thro' Ellesmere for Hardwick amidst the • acclamations of the p pulace.— His arrival at the latter place was announced by a salute from the Tiger Guns;, ami sheep were roasted at thc brow of the hill, which, wilh a sufficient quantity of good old stingo, were distiibutcd to a large assembly O11 Wednesday, thc ox was roasted at Ellesmere, and distributed, with a proportionate quantity of bread and ale, about 4 o'clock in the afternoon, to llie assembled multi- tude, whose shouts of exultation aud happy countenances, joined to the ringing of bells ami the martial airs of the Ellesmerc baud, exhibited a scene of hilarity never before equalled in that town. At five o'clock, a partv of the in- habitants sat down to an elegant dinner at the Bridgewater Arms; where the worthy Bailiffs presided,— and the band was in attendance ; after dinner, various loyal and consti- tutional toasts were drank with applause; but when the health of Lord Hill and the Father of Heroes was given, a scene of enthusiasm presented itself, which it would be im- j possible to describe— suffice it lo say, therefore, this toast j was drank with thunders of approbation ; and ihe remainder 1 of ihe evening was spent in a spirit of harmony and convi- | viality worthy the happy occasion. Early 011 Thursday morning, by appointment, Capt. Perrott Simcocks, R. M and Edward Ralphs, Esq. Bailiffs, accompanied by Mr. Charles Hughes, drove to Hardwick, where ihev were introduced to Lord Hill, by Col. Kynaston Powell. His Lordship received the deputation in a most affable inanuei4; ami Mr. Charles Hughes addressed the notrfe Hero a* follow s : " MY LORD— Allow me, on behalf of the Bailiffs and Inhabitants of Ellesmere, to assure you we feel the highest gratification in seeing your Lordship among us in company with our highly respected neighbour Colonel Kyuaston Powell. It is also our ardent wish and desire to offer to your Lordship our feeble yet most sincere thanks for Ihc many great exploits you have perfor med,— for the consum- mate skill aud valour you have displayed in your country's service during ihe long and sanguinary contest in which we liave been engaged,— deeds which have not only brought immortal honour on yourself, but on this county which gave you birth, and have justly called for the repeated unanimous thanks of both Houses of Parliament and! the marked appiobation of our Sovereign. Long may your lordship live to enjoy those well merited honours and dis- tinctions which your country has bestowed on you, and the inward satisfaction your lordship must feel while you well know you have the esteem, and are the admiration, of every well- wisher of his country, and arc a terror to her enemies." His Lordship replied,— GFNIXFMEN— 1 thank you for your oolite visit, and have to request you will acquaint the Inhabitants of Files- mere^ I feel ttie greatest satisfaction that my public services have been such as meet with their approbation; and he pleased to assure them, should my Sovereign and my Country again call upon me, it shall be my utmost endea- vour to merit a continuance of their esteem." On ihe return of the deputation, it was made known that Lord Hill wouM return through Ellesmere to Hawkstone that morning, and preparations were made for his public reception. The Bailiffs, attended by the principal in- habitants and the several Friendly Societies, met his lordship ( w ho was accompanied by his brother, Sir Francis Hill, and Col. Kynastou Powell) at the end of the town; the populace, on his arrival, about 19 o'clock, took the horses from the carriage, and, his lordship having conde- scendingly mounted the box, drew it through the principal streets to the Bridgewat'Cr Arms, amidst incessant acclama- tions.— Lord Hill then addressed the audience as follows :— " 1 am truly happy to have it in my power publicly to thank you for yttur attention to me ; be assured, either in the Field or the Senate, 1 shall study to deserve the appro- bation of my Sovereign and my Country ; for nothing ran he more gratifying to a soldier, on his return to his lialive soil, than to find he stands well in ihe estimation of his Country.'' After shaking hands with all who could gain access to his Carriage, Lord H » IJ took leave of his Ellesmere friends, leaving them as welt satisfied of his aimable disposition and manner, as they were before of his skill and valour. We cannot close this account without paying a tribute of praise to the Committee for their able and judicious ar- rangements, which, we are informed, they have justly merited.

Mr. Crockford lost 5000 guinea, by fVilli am winning the late St. Leger race, at Doncasler, in n bet of 5000 to 50 that Sir Godfrey Webster did not name the winner. Orders have been given to suspend the disbanding of the militia regiments. The second battalions of the re- gulars are, it is said, to be kept up. As a Miss N icholas was riding, a few days ago, on the hank ofthe Rhvmny, in Wales, her horse took flight, and gallopped furiously along the road overhanging the river; her servant endeavoured to come up with hei iu vain ; per- ceiving that her own horse exerted himself to keep the lead when he heard the other coining up, she made a signal to Ihc Servant to check his pace; her own horse, however, continued his course with desperate speed, till she arrived at a place where a rock fallen from the cliff occupied half the road: here the animal had scarcely room to pass between the rock and thc precipice; in thc attempt lo pass, his hind leg* and body slipped down the precipice, while his fore legs only retained hold of the road. In this awful situation, without any assistance, or any prospect but destruction, thc young lady did not delay a moment to attempt her deliver- ance from I tie dangers that surrounded her: she sprang from her scat to a twig that overhung, and regained the road in safety } The horse fell ( a depth of200 feet) into the water below, and sw » m to the opposite shore without mate- rial injury. On Wednesday se'nnigbt a most respectable and Mr, Webb, the Philanthropist — Since Ihe residence of this gentleman in London, he lms been so annoyed by a j number of sturdy beggars, as to be unable to move out of doors without being followed by litem. To such a pitch had tlieir insolence and importunity increased, that on Monday, he was under tlie necessity of having two of ihem taken to Bow- street Office, " herethey underwent an exami- nation before Mr. Birnie, w ho committed ihem to prison as rogues and vagabonds. Seizure of Salmon. — Some time ago we had the gratification of announcing, a considerable declension of price in the article of Severn Salmon, and other fish, in con- sequence of ihe exertions of thc several Assoeiat ions formed for the protection of our river; their endeavours to pro- mote the increase of so desirable an article of food have also been much forwarded by Similar Societies on the Wye, Uslq and other rivers.— It is with in- finite satisfaction we now inform our readeis, that the Clerk ofthe Billingsgate Market has lately, under the sanction of th*,* Lord Mayor of London, seized at different limes a quantity, of Salmon in that market. A case of seizure occurred last week which excited much interest, ami, as the result must have the effect of furthering the views of the local Associations, we shall lay a detail of it before our readers : — M A N SIDN- H0USE.— Seizure of Sal wort at Billingsgate — A N appeal was made to the Lord Mayor, on tbe part of the w holesale fish dealers, by Mr. Saunders, of Upper Thames- sheet, and others, against a seizure by the city officer, ( or clerk of the market), amounting, in this instance, to 100 prime Salmon, in addition to former seizures made upon them to a much greater extent. His Lordship, as both parties were complainants, was at a loss which to hear first, but determined in favour of Mr. Guiding, Clerk of Billings- gate, in support ofthe seizure.—- The officer stated, that the seizure in question was made by him in the discharge of his duty under the Act uf Parliament,; which prohibited the sale ofSalmon out of season, or when thc female fish be- came filled with spawn, which was limited to ihe 10th of October, when Salmon Fishing was actually forbidden by law. He was willing to give seven or eight days grace,; so that the supply received in thc market might he disposed of; beyond that latitude this seizure was made. A sample was now produced of two very large Salmon, which, wtieh opened, contained full roes.— These were forbidden by law to be taken, inasmuch as each roe was supposed to supply next season to the amount of 10,000 young; which at one year's growth would befit for market This would make a material alteration as to the price of Salmon in the London market; and but for this destruction of spawn, hy taking such quantities of fish out of season, Salmon, in the London market, might be ns low as three- pence instead of nin:'- pence per lb. which latter was the average price for the last twelve months. The seizure was made alio 011 the princi- ple, lhat when the fish became filled with spawn, it was unwholesome food undey the city regulations, while, by the Act of Parliament, the fishery was suspended both as to male and female.— Mr. Saunders replied to Ihe charge. It had become a question of considerable impoitance, and he was anxious that his Lordship would give an impartial decision, not merely as it regarded the seizure made, but as it might affect the construction of thc Act of Parliament in future. He w ished to bo understood that large quantities of Salmon were consigned to him and other dealers present, from salmon fisheries in the north ; lhat these persons were totally ignorant that such supplies were by law prohibited after a certain period, provided the taking was not extended beyond the time of the general prohibitory act. The Sal- mon Fishers could not find a sale for the quantity taken, unless by consigning them to the Loudon market, and it j was fit that they should understand the terms upou which I such seizure was made, so that they might stop taking fish I earlier than the Act prescribed; because the supply was sometimes so great up to Ibis period, that it was impossible tw find a market for the quantity consigned here within- il « given lime.— Mr. Golding observed, that the period should be fixed to the 25th of September, instead of the 10th of October.— Defendants answered, certainly Ibis was all they wished; and I hat it might be understood, that the coopers or fishers were not to make consignments after that period. Mean time it was requested that the supply of Salmon received might. be permitted to be sold. His Lordship said that, with the exception of the female, il might: as far as it regarded Salmon with spawn, Ihe seizure must be held good. This decision was assented to by both parlies. The Editor of the Bristol Journal stales, that during the last fortnight there have been hundreds of pounds weight of salmon illegally exposed to sale in the » ity of Bristol. The reduction of nearly .50 per cent, in the price of bark has not caused the slightest alteration in the price of leather. How is this to be accounted for? A poor fisherwonian, belonging to WhHehiiis, North Britain, went into the country last week to sell her fish. On her return, she was taken in labour upon the road side, and, without any assistance, delivered of two children. She wrapped them up, put them into her creel ( fish basket), and proceeded homewards. On her arrival there, she discovered, to her inexpressible grief, that both the little innocents had died by the way ! On the 22d ult. as Mary Hughes, a young woman of Marshfield, wns going to Bath market, she was attacked ou the Glocester road by two brutes in the shape of men, who robbed her of eight pounds in cash and bills, stripped her of all her clothes, and left her entirely naked! in which distressing slate she remained for full an hour, when she was discovered by a man driving a cart, who very humanely clothed her with his frock and great coat, and returned home with her to Marsh held. fatal Effects of Drunkenness. — Two coroner's inquisitions were taken in Birmingham last week : one 011 a person of the name of Daniel Sueyd, about 25 years. of age, who, being iu a state of intoxication, went into a yard in London'Prentice- street, aud there fell into a well of water, and was drow tied : the other on a person oflhe name of John Ball, who was about 60 years of age, and, being in a state of intoxication, fell dow n the cellar steps of a public house in Lichfield- street, and dislocated his neck -- Verdicts, accidental death.— In one of these deplorable cases a widow and five children, and in the other a woman and three illegitimate children, are become chargeable to ( lie parish. On Fridav lasl, Thomas Sharpe was found guilty al the Old Bailey, of the wilful murder of Eliz. Dobbins, at Mill field- lane, near Kentish- town, on Ihe 4th ult. by beat- ing her brains out with a poker, as staled in a former paper. The' Recorder passed sentence to be hanged on Monday next, finishing with the usual prayer, " May God, of his infiiuite godness, have mercy on your soul!" The prisoner replied aloud, - t May the curse of God attend you day and night, both in this world and theiYext!"— That hardened dep ravity however, which shocked every spectator, forsook him, 011 his removal fsom the bar ; and on his return to his cell he shed tears, « e would hope of compunction, after which he comported himself in some degree becoming his situation, and, when executed on Monday, died with the appearance of penitence. Crim. Con. in High Life.— A case of this nature has just happened, which, under all its circumstances, is more likely to make a great noise in the World, than any of the same kind that has occurred for many years. The Lady is the wife of a Scotch Earl ( Roseberry), young, beautiful, married about six years, and the mother of four children.— ' i'he gallant is a young English Baronel ( Sir ( 1. Mildmay), a Member ofthe House of Commons, of an ancient family, and possessed of a great fortune, principally in the South of England. What makes this ease the more distressing is, Caution.' It appearing by aw advertise ment from the * War Office, that frauds to n considerable amount have been committed by women producing passes, and claiming from parish officers the allowances granted to the wives, widows, and children of soldiers, the officers are recommended strictly to investigate such passes, and not to give the allow, ance for a greater number of children than are under fhe care of the women; and if it shall appear that tlie passes produced have been fo » ged, or fraudulently altered, the women may hc apprehended, and proceeded against as vagrants. Hereford annual October Fair produced one of the largest and finest shows of cattle ever witnessed; working oxen, and fat cattle, were rapidly disposed of, and sold at higher prices than their owners generally expected to pro- cure for them. Lean cattle experienced a dull sale, and s small decline in thc price. ' 1 he horse market contained few fine animals, nnd all descriptions went lower than last fair. Pigs and sheep sold well. The quautii v of Hops brought for sale was considerable, and a great deal uf busi- ness was done in this article. On Ihe first day | 50, and oa thc second, 700 bags were weighed ; a prime sample sold a » high as £' l l, some at £ 10, and varying from that price U4 <£ s. 8*. for good Hofts, mid inferior quality went as low- as « £ 6. t) s. per cwt.

AT Bolton lived a jolly Wight, As ever lifted porter to liis lips; TOM at the Swan attended every night, And trolled faster than the famed Eclipse. Rv trotting,* though, t do uol mean he run,— But played his merry tricks and noisy fun ; And woe upon that luckless elf, Who first in droll Tom's power put himself. Now you must know, Not long ago, As he was talking in his usual strain, Behold! there, driven hy a shower of rain, A skin- net stranger rail Shivering into the Swan ; And sitting down, He iu the conversation mingled— But looking greatly like a brainless Clown, Was for his butt by Tommy singled. Fain was now the subject of their talk, And how onentan could bear it without fear, And vet another fiv it like a ninny : " I will," exclaimed the stranger, " bet a guinea I ran hear more than any other here." Tmn heard his words, and nailed him like a hawk -. " Done ' " said he, " 1 lay 1 longer hold In boiling water my right leg than you :>' " Done ! " said the stranger, with a voice as bold— Alas ! how soon did he that Wager rue. Jack brought two pails, of boiling water full; And each his right leg straight immersed— « The stranger kept it there— and though, 1 warrant, His pain was terrible, ' twas riot apparent,— Antl he staid quietly for minutes two: Then dirl he into shapes all hideouB screw His face, and forth his leg he drew, And boiling water loudly cursed. But Tom sat careless, without feeling pain, The water bubbled round his teg in vain,— This did the stranger with amazement mark : " bounds, man ! " said he, " take out your leg, Or you'll be left with but a single peg :"— " Oh never fear," said Tom, " ' tis made of Cork 1" * Iroiting is a provincial word for joking, or perhaps quizzing, LINES, Written on a pane of glass at an Inn near Salisbury Plain.

B " Bather pleasant weather to- day." A. " Yes, but it was cold in Ihe morning." B. " Yes, but we must expect lhat at this time o'year." ( Another brief pause,— neckloth twisted and switch twirled). A. " Seen Smith lately ?" B. " No.— I can't say I have." ( This can't say Is a very characteristic phrase in English discourse, implying that the speaker prefers truth even to the comfort of having an answer to give, and that he wishes to Heaven he coulrl say it. The question above put is a painful one to Brooks, because it seems tn throw upon him the responsibility of having ideas : but be luckily recollects, that if he has not seen Smith, lie has seen Thompson.)— Brooks, in continuation. " But I have seen Thompson." A. " Indeed— and how is he >" B. " Very well, thank'ee." A. " I'm glad of it.— Well,— good morning." B. " " Good morning." Here it is always observed, that the speakers, having taken leave, walk faster than itsual for some hundred yards : and lucky is he who has a corner lo turn down, and can begin, as it were, afresh, in another street. The French in general, who can talk as fluently of a ribbon as of a great man, and the dullest of whom have a way of filling up the crannies and gaptngs of conversation with ges- tures that look as if they hail a meaning, would desire nothing better than tbe above discourse tn set them laughing victori- ously for two or three hours. We remember a French emi- grant, now dead, who had been a professor of one of the uni- versities, and who was perhaps as dull a person, when you came to sheer ' collision of mind, as ever existed : yet you could not meet him in the street, or taking an evening's walk in the fields, but what with grinning, bowing, apeing, and saying what he had lo say with an air of vivacity, he left an impression upon you that he had really been saying something : whereas Ihe whole of his questions and answers, if translated into good idiomatic English, would have amounted to about as much as the above conversation. Sittings appointed in Middlesex and London, before Lord Ellenboroiigh, Lord Chief Justice, & c, in and after Michaelmas Term, 1814 :— IN TERM. MIDDLESEX, LONDON. PARISIAN GOSSIPING. The facility with which the French maintain long conversations upon the most trifling subjects, or, indeed, upon no subject at all, has been often remarked by authors who have compared their national manners with our own. This fluency of speech is not pecu liar to either sex, but is a prominent quality in both. A periodical work, oil the plan of the English Taller, lias been recently published in Paris j it is callcd V Hermite de la Chaussec tPAulin, and contains a specimen of Parisian gossiping, which will not be uninteresting to many of our readers i— Madame Chcquet ( the hermit's housekeeper, or laundress) comes inlo my room every morning about nine o'clock, and begins her functions by serving up mv breakfast: during this, at the same time putting my room in order, she utters with the most incredible volubility of tongue her monologues, which would put the most skilful tachygraphfet to a loss. Last Monday, in listening to her, I took notes to aid my memotv. MadameChoqnet begins—" Monsieur, perhaps, will not find his cream so good as usual, but. it is not my fault, Clara did not come round to- day, and there is a trood reason why, she is brought to bed, poor woman ; this is her seventh — it. is the keej.'- sake which her husbanrl left her when he went as a substitute nine months ago; but there is some good out of evil, for Madame Dumont, wife of the notary, has given her a child to nurse. You will ask me why so rich a woman has not her child nursed in her own In, use. It was her intention; but because Colonel Dorfeuil, cousin of Madame, who bad bis arm broke iu Germany last year, came to be cured at their house, thev contrived to heat into the bead of M. Dumont, that the little one should be put to nurse. Peihaps he should not bear all the blame; tho world is very wicked. " This is just what I said the other day to the porteress who told me all this. ' My dear Mrs. Baibotin,' said I, ' If vou take my advjee look to your door and meddle not with " what is done within.' But, gootl woman, her tongue is too stiorig for her— piattle she must. God knows she has a pretty opportunity to do well where she if. The house is so large— there aie fifteen families— 900 franks JOHI pour litre, without Teckoning the Christmas boxes: Ihere are very few doors like that in Parts ! Heaven grant that Madame Barbmin profit by inv advice more than Madame Badoteau, purteress of the Bcatibois. That woman was, to tell the truth, the gazette ot the neighbourhood : nothing was done in her house that sh did not give an account of to her neighbours. Without ber, how would it ever have been known lhat M. Reaubois got his place by the means of his wife ? Madame Beaubois was be- liever! to be ofa good family, but it came out that she had been a dancing girl in Germany, where she bad ruined I don't know how many Barons. She must have ruined a pretty g. iod number, for she made a fortune of them. M, Beau- bois, who wanted security in order to be able to hold the office which he was trying to obtain, married her without looking into any thing hot her strong chest The porteress • heard Ihe story from a brother of Madame, a fine youth, who fell id upon them one morning, aud who, as you may believe, was SOL, n packed off as a douanier, to the other end of the world; all his travelling expeuces paid. Some say he was Madame's brother, others that he was no m- ie her brother than you or I are : that's no matter to me— since, says the proverb, ' every one for himself, and Cod for us all. 1 Since litis gossiping poiteress has been dismissed for spreading bad reports, she has been living upon her daughter Maiiette, who is nursery trtaid at a Senator's : the wench is ptetty, and was two veais an apprentice wi. b me ; she- was to have been married last year to a coal factor at I he,' gate of St. Nicholas, an excellent business cairied on quite snug, The match was off; whose fault was it but the silly mother, who suffered Iter daughter to goon a Sunday to the Chaumiere aloue with he r intended. I don't mean to say that young people of eighteen do not know the difference between the day before and the day after marriage— God forbid ! hut in my time the giils were married, arid did not go to Paphos, to Tivoli, to the Clt'ium. rct " True it is, the town balls are scarce better; witness twenty pretty gills I could name who never miss one, and yet are n<> t married the more for thai : without mentioning names, see w hat has happened to tho daughter of our neigh- bour, who will be rich one day, and is yet handsome: it is ten years since she bas been reckoned the best dancer in Paris, and has danced with all Ihe young men in the city, yet not one has offered lo many hei : why ? because they aie afraid of wives vvhodance too well; because it costs more to lake a wife lo the ball five or six times ill Ihe year, than to feed two children, and because the love ol -. tucmg does not accord drith the cares of buusekeping, without reckoning other reasons which Monsieur will guess at." Madame Choquct made a pause heie, antl as she perceived that! intended to take advantage ol it to erlge in a word—" 1 beg pardon," said she, " for intenuptiug yon, but I must beg to leave Monsieur this morning sooner than usual ; I have not a moment to lose, for to tell you the tiCuli, 1 am go: ng lo a marriage. Yes. indeed, to a marriage. You must have reniaiked, Sir. a Noting girl that is sometimes with me : it is young Henrietta, the daughter ofa iriaslei- buiober some door- from us, and t rie of the richest in Paris.

ENGLISH CONVERSATION, ' flic Editor of The Examiner, a London paper, has given the following characteristic and vivacious speci- men of what he calls " that ancient formula, which may be termed An Englishman's Dialogue."— The initials used on imaginary occasions, A ami H, for the belter vitality of Liie discourse, and lhat no injustice be done it, are translated iuto Adams and Brooks:— Saturday Nov. 12 Thursday Nov. 17 Friday.-.

Nov. 30 The main object of the meeting of Parliament is now stated to be, that of obtaining supplies both for the army and navy, the grants for both being exhausted; and the Vote of Credit, being charged with both ser- vices, is already about half consumed. The charge on the Ordnaiite Department will, however, fall very con- siderably short of the £ 3,588,727. Os. 9d. voted for that service. Of the various taics that have been levied to enable this country to support the late unprecedented contest, none have proved so productive as the Income and Property Taxes. The following is a statement of their produce in the different years ending the 5th January : INCOME TAX. . £ 5,651,679 .'.... 3,232,956 1802.......... 1803 1800 £ 2,691,259 180 1 4,513,038 PROPERTY TAX 1804 £ 16,917 1805 3,509,351 1806 4,41) 6,521 1807 5,983,214 1808 9,864,182 1809 11,120,131 10 12,134,118 181 1 £ 13,216,864 181 2 12,941,155 181 3 12,789,778 1814..,.. 13,965,803 ln the three^ quarters to the V .... 12,181,214 lotli Oct. inst.) Comprising in the above period a total of £ 128,818,337, of which £ 1 12,129,255 is for Property Tax, and the remainder on account of Income. Exclusive of which there has been paid in, since the period when the Property Tax commenced, for arrears of Income Duties, upwards of £ 600,000. Two agents from St. Domingo, sent by Petion, to this country, are arrived in London. They are both Mulattoes, one of them a General Officer, and are charged wilh an important mission to the British Government. They state the decided determination of Christophe and Petion to make one common cause against France, should she attempt the invasion and conquest of the island. Since the knowledge of the article of the Treaty of Peace, bv which the French are to carry on the Slave Trade for the term of five years, the general hatred against them has been in- flamed lo a degree altogether indescribable. The English are on the contrary held in the highest esteem throughout all parts of St. Domingo. The colonial black marines, mentioned in the late dispatches from Sir A. Cochrane, arc the slaves who have deserted from the Americans and joined our armament. They are clothed, organized, and armed, and fight, in general, with much spirit. They have a two- fold stimulus to this— hatred to their late masters, and the certainty of death if retaken. The letters from the American co; ist, speak in the highest terms of Itear- Admiral Cockburu: he has gained the entire affection of the soldiers as well as Ihe sailors. The entire population of the extensive districts con- quered from the Americans 011 the Penobscott does not exceed 27,000 souls, the census of 1810 being onlv 24,2S9. The ground includes seven millions of acrc, and is nearly divided between the heirs of a Mr. Bing- ham and the family of Messrs. Baring. The valuation is under one shilling per acre. The Sydney Gazettes mention that some disputes had arisen between the settlers and the natives, which had been followed by acts of violence, and several persons on both sides had been killed. The mountain natives had been particularly troublesome at Ihe more remote plantations of New South Wales. A colonial vessel had arrived from Port Dalrymple, and had brought an unaccountable story of two most respec*- able persons who held public situations, and who, it is asserted, had each of them taken the command of distinct detachments of banditti. Earl Spencer is said to have increased his rental, by moderate improvements and judicious purchases, lo £ 70,000 per annum. His lordship, however, missed one purchase in Ihe midst of his own estates,— that of Holinsby Manor, once the residence of the unfortunate Charles the First. He hesitated so long upon this wilh its owner, the Duke of Marlborough, that his Grace sold it lo his son- in- law, Lord Cliffden, who uow makes it pay full 5 per cent, for his money. Courtiers.— The Duke of Grammont was the most adroit and witty courtier of his day. lie entered one day the closet of Cardinal Maaarin without being announced. His Eminence was amusing himself hy jumping close- legged against the wall. To surprise a Prime Minister iu so boyish an occupation was danger- ous: a less skilful courtier might have stammered excuses, and retired. The Duke entered briskly, and cried, " I'll bet 100 crowns lhat I jump higher than your Eminence-." and the Duke and Cardinal began to jump for their lives. Grammont took care lo jump a few inches lower than the Cardinal; and was, six months afterwards, Marshal of France. Devonshire Farming.— A short time since a farmer died, who rented a great deal of laud in this neigh- bourhood, and, besides other property, bequeathed £ 25,000 to liis eldest soil; £ 25,000 to his second sou; to his third and fourth sons £ 10,000 each 1 and lo liis daughter £ 5000. The wife of the above farmer has for many years regularly attended the Exeter markets wilh fowls, butter, and c^ gs.— Exeter Gazelle. The foundation- stone ofa pillar, in commemoration of Peace, has been laid on the summit of a hill called Stoodley Pike, in the parish of Halifax, Yorkshire.— There were nearly 10,000 persons present on the occasion. POLICE,— James Crbwder, A poor cobler. in Field- lane, was brought before tbe Court, at Guildhall," London, on a summons bv Thomas Parkins, the landlord of the Red Cow public- house, in Cow- lane, Sniithfie- ld ( and an active member on the Inquest of that ward), for having, on Sunday, exposed for sale outside of his stall, divers old boots, shoes, antl other articles in which he dealt, during the time of performance of divine service.— Defendant not being able to deny the chatge, he ivas lined in the usual penalty of 7s. and, with a penitential look, bowed submission to the judgment of tbe Court. He, however, begged leave to ask tho Alderman, w hether those persons who formed the Inquest were not bound by the same, latv, antl eouallv amenable to its penalties as other peisons were? Being told bv Ihe Court that they cer- tainly were equally liable ( or indeed rather more so), he begged leave to remind the present Complainant, that on the Sunday before last he had, during church time, left his street door invitingly Open, and, on poor snob's entrance and ap- proach to his bar, Complainant not only le'eeived him with a snule, but, on his request, readily filled him a pint of beer, which he drank and paid for. Under these circumstances, he thought " the picsent Complainant had transgressed the law as much as himself.— The publican not being able to deny or re- but the charge, was told by the Court, that there the scales of justice were guided by an equal balance, and though he was much to be commended for the zealous discharge of his duty as one of the Inquest, vet, as he had somehow inadvertently forgotten to " remove the beam out. of his own eye" before he so strictly condemned the blemish occasioned by the " mole in ihe eye of his neighbour," tbe Court must, with an impartial view, consider the defects of each of them, antl therefore he was under the necessity of imposing tbe same fine on him as he was on the cobler.— The publican replied, that as he found he must be fined, he might as well pay it immedi- ately, which he did, antl all parties departed highly satisfied With the verification of the old proverb, that ( iu this country at least) " What is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander." On the morning of the 18th ult. about two o'clock, a linen- draper's shop in Piccadilly, near Dover- street, London, was broke open by forcing the fan- light over the shop- door, which alarmed the shopman, who got up and found the robber with part of his body in the shop, and with a hooked stick caching out some valuable shawls, lie armed himself with a loaded pistol, aud discharged it at tbe robber, who instantly disap| ieared. The shopman having procured a light went t< the outside of the shop- door, where he found there was 110 doubt be bail wounded the robber, whose blood was traced from the door along Piccadilly, down Bury- street to Pall- mall, Cockspur- street, and the Strand, to the end of Vilhers- street, where all trace ceased. Application was made t- Mr. Birnie, at Bow- stieet, who, conceiving the parish con. stable and beadle of St. Martin's parish the most likely per- sons to oblain information from the inhabitants of Villiets- street, directed young Donaldson to make inquiry with them, when they found that a man who had been shot in the mouth bad been taken yesterday morning from the neighbourhood of Villiers- street to the Westminster Infirmary, w here In was languishing in consequence of the shot not being extracted from his Chin. He proves to be the son of a respectable publican of the name of Boulton, who, being infoimed what had happened; found his son out nt a house of ill- fame in the neighbourhood r> f the Strand, and had him Conveyed to West- minster- hospital, wheiYce he was removed by older of Mr. Birnie, to Tutpill- Fields Bridewell.— On Saturday, 111 conse- quence of his not being deemed in a sufficient state to be re moved from thence to Bow street Office, Mr. Birnie, the Magistrate, accompanied by the witnesses, went to Tothill- Fields Bridewell, to take Iheir depositions. The evidences, which had been previously take:! 111 writing, were reail over to the prisoner, who was asked if he had any questions to put, or any thing to say in his defence; but, from the slate of his wounds, he was not able to speak iu reply ; but pen, ink, and paper were placed befoie him, and he wrote for answer, that he had nothing to say. At the close of this proceeding, Mr. Birnie fully committed hirti to Newgate for trial, subject to the discretion and opinion of Mr. Hanbury, tbe suigeon belonging to the prison, as to the safety of tbe state of his wounds. It was the opinion of the surgeons who attended htm at the Westminster hospital, that he would speedily reeovei, and, in fact, he jumped into the hackney coach, when he was removed from the hospital to Bridewell, with as much ease as if lie had not been wounded.

Hicks, Esq. tbe Sitting Magistrate at Mnrlborougb- street Police Office, on Saturday. Mrs. Hooker, alias Laing, alias Bedstead, was charged w- iib bigamy, in marrying three husbands.— The story is as follows :— The prisoner, ivho is a well. looking young woman, formerly lived as housekeeper with Dr. A. a Medical Gentleman of considerable practice, and from bis set vice she married her first husband, Hooker. It was known to Ihe Doctor that the man and his wifa dirl not agree, and they ultimately separated. A short time after this, I. aing paid his addresses to Mrs. Hooker; and, although he knew Hooker was alive, he. betrothed hei. Dr. A. advanced .£ 10. upou this occasion to make the parties comfortable, which the husband paid by instalments. In the course of four years of domestic strife, Hooker died in earnest, and the Li. dy, not content with a second husband, found an opportunity, whilst lie was at his daily wink, t> elope from him with the third husband, Bedstead, who lodged in the bouse of Laing, pro- viding herself wilh the furniture of tbe house. Bedstead knew she was married to Laing, his landl > rd, and that lie had so married hei whilst her first husband was living; and he bail only enjoyed her social society a fortnight, when both were taken up; by virtue of a search warrant, to get at the goods, which Laing claimed. There was no positive proof adduced as to the first marriage; and respecting the second, I tie hn- baml seemed very content to let the virtuoso remain in quiet pos- session of the third, and, whilst dropping an affectionate tear, he soothed her sorrows by assuring tier he would not prosecute, tinder all the circumstances, the Magistrate dismissed the case, advising the woman not to pursue this line of conduce The Doctor paid her fees, and the Lady, escorted bv the second and third husband, retired to a neighbouring public- bouse lo settle their affairs in equity ; as it turned out that tbe goods, which were taken by virtue of the search warrant, were purchased bv b ith. The second marriage is invalidated bv law; but that of Bedstead, the third husband, is legal, and he is entitled to his priz\ The number of commitments lo the new prison, Clerkenwell, since the last Oid Bailey Sessions, is no less than three hundred and twenty. On Tuesday se'nnight George Lyon, of Upholland, near Wigan, was apprehended by Mr. Xadin, the deputy constable of Manchester, on a charge of housebreaking, which lie is said to have carried on for nearly 30 years; during which period he had suffered transportation for seven years. On searching the house, 100 guineas in gold, and a great quantity of hank notes tied up in two large rolls, were found concealed in lie wall. He was fully committed to Lancaster gaol for trial. J\ lurder.— A coroner's inquest was held on the 19th ulr. lit Chesterton, neat Newcastle, on view , f the bodies of Ann Burrows, aged about tour years, antl George Buirows, two years of age, who bad been poisoned by their mother, Elizabeth Burrows, on the Friday preceding. It appeared that the mother, io company with another woman, purchased a quantity of arsenic at a druggist's in Newcastle, under pre- tence of destroying vermin, and that sue administered a quantity to the children, in treacle, with such fatal prompt- ness, that, they were both dead in three hours after ti e poison had been purchased ' — 1* also appeared that she admitted t, i a neighbour that she administered tint deadly potion, and seemed on the occasion much distressed, - observing that sh vas induced so to do by the dread of poverty ! — Tlie brniies of Ihe children were opened by a surgeon, who took a consider- able quantity of arsenic from their stomachs. Tne jury under tbe direction of the coroner, brought in a verdict of wili'ui murder, and the Onhapnv woman has since been Committed to our county gaol. There are, as is usual on such occasions, mat. y reports abroad about the prison- r. one of which is that she is suspected of having destroyed two other children tome years ago, but of the ground fir this rumour vve know- nothing It is saitl she has been Subject to fits of insanity, — Staffordsltre Advertiser. An elderly woman, 011 her road into Scotland, called a few days ago at the police- office, in Manchester, wilh a pass, for the usual allowance from Mr. Nadin, the Deputy Constable. Unfortunately, however, she presented to him, instead of the pass, a piece of paper containing bank- notes to the amount of £ 24. It may easily be imagined that she would profit little by rectifying her mistake. Suicide.— A few ' days ago, a youug woman put an end to her existence by throwing herself into a pond in Hackney- fields, London. As the circumstances of tbis affair may convey a lesson to the minds of many, we shall present them to our reader!— The imprudent girl hail lived as servant in the neighbourhood for a Considerable time, and had been treated with fraternal affection by her mistress.— A short time previous to the fatal event, in a conversation between them, she observed, that if ever she had the mis- fortune to become the Victim of seduction, she would not sur- vive it three hours. On the evening prece line the catastrophe, she obtained permission to accompany her sister to Sadler's Weils, Instead of her sister, however, she was attended by a male companion ; and, at the close of tbe entertainment, tliey went to a neighbouring public- house ; after which, as Since appears from 1 Ire confession of the seducer, lie prevailed ou her to accompany him to a brothel, where they continued till tire morning ; when she returned home, and kindled Ihe fire. On her mistress coming down, she naturally reprimanded her for her misconduct, when she. flew to her mother, who resided I11 the neighbourhood, where meeting with a repetition of the rebuke, she quitted the house, and was observed hy a labour- ing man running with uncommon speed, and altho' her bonnet blew off, she continued her pace, without attending to the circumstance, till she came to the pond, in which she plunged without deliberation ; and though the man before- mentioned sought aid, and drags were proem ed with all speed, it. was half an hour ere the body could be extricated, when the vital spark bad He! beyond tbe reach of tbe resuxcitatory art.— Hence, let youthful minds be proof against the first induce- ment to guilt.— Vice is like a slippery precipice, when the first barrier is broken down — when the tool lias lirst stepped over the edge—' tis not foi human prudence to say— Thus far will I go, and no farther!—" Let her mho thinks the stands take heed le* t she fall!" — The female above alluded to, ap- pealed to have an innate detestation, of vice; but iu an un- fortunate moment she commenced ber vicious career with dissimulation, which quickly led to c iines of a more flagitious tendency"; and in a few hours she terminated her existence bv suicide; thus rushing into the presence of her Maker uncalled a nil unprepared. A daring attempt was made by four felons to break out of Newcastle gaol, ou Sunday. They were all con- fined in one cell, aud had burnt a holes at the bottom of tbe door sufficiently laige lo pass through. They Ihen proceeded to another heavy door, from which tbev contrived lo burn Ihe ponderous lock, by piling coals 011 a large iron plate which tliey bail taken from Iheir beds. Their design, however, was discoveied, by Ihe smoke issuing from a niche iu the wall, about four o'clock iu llie afternoon, when the gaoler, accompanied by a guard of soldiers; secured them, and they are now chained lo the ground, until the doors are replaced, George Post.— This unfortunate man, who, it will be recollected, was convicted at Ihe lale Chester assizes 011 the testimony of nn artful wicked giiI, named Ann Postles, aud sentenced to be hanged, has received a FREE PARDON from llie Prince Regent.— It is with satisfaction we add, that propei means are taking lo have the miscreants, who fabricated the charge against Post, brought to trial for tbe atrocious conspiracy. A free pardon has been received for Thomas Bryan, who was convicted al Ihe late Stafford Assizes ofthe murder of his wife at Bilstou, and he bas been sel at liberty. A rich vein of lead and silver tire is discovered in Wheal Penhale Mine, which promises lo make one of the first mines in Ihe western part of Cornwall. Pore ester Caslle has lately undergone a minute inspection, preparatory to being made a depot for deserters Its insular situation renders it a most eligible depot for such a purpose ; attached to the castle ate storehouses, offices, antl hospitals of every description, willi fine military bar- racks. Two detachments of Marines, under l. ieuts. Crowe and Saver, are stationed at Horndean and Fareharn, to inter- cept deserters from the garrison. They will be placed as scouts from the Sussex eastern road lo the western road, thus encompassing Ibe island on the laud side, A few nights ago, Ihe gardener of Mr. Shepherd, who resides within three miles of Lai ton Buzzard, Bedford shire, suffered a most melancholy and extraordinary death. The pinery of Mr. S. had frequently been robbed ; the gardener, therefore, determined to sit tip and watch ; he accordingly posled himself in the green- house, with a loaded fowling piece, where, as it is supposed, he fell asleep, and in the morning was found dead 011 the ground, with al! the appearance of suffoca- tion, evidently occasioned hy the discharge of mephitic gas from the plants during the night. Turnips,— A white Norfolk turnip, grown in a field within Iwo miles of Stafford, sown the beginning of July with a drill machine 011 the level, weighs 165 lbs. which, considering the dryness of the season, is extra- ordinary. From the time of sowing, it was left in the ground 107 days, which gives an average increase of 2$ oz. per day. A circumstance of rather a singular nature excited the attention of the company in the Argyll steain- boal, 011 Monday se'nnight, during her voyage from Glasgow. When a litlle way above Renfrew, a lark flew from the land, closely followed by a hank, which pursued it for a considerable time, almost immediately above the vessel. The lark continued, wiili a surprising dexterity, to elude the grasp of its intended destroyer, till, quite exhausted with its fruitless attempts to escape, il flew to tire boat, and alighted 011 the deck. A gentleman instantly sprang forward to its succour, but with a precipitation which caused Ihe little warbler to fear that ils confidence in man had been misplaced, for it flew off, and, committing itself to its fate, was again pursued hy its nimble enemy.— During this second pursuit, half a dozen crows generously interposed between the pur suer and the pursued, beat off Ihe hawk, and compelled it lo change its course; unfortunately, however, ou the retreat of the crows, the hawk again espied its prey, again pursued if. and, after a long flight, the lark a second time ventured to descend on the deck for protection, Once more the same error as formerly- exposed it to the determined enmity of its pursuer, now joined by another hawk, which entered wilh fresh vigour 011 the chase, and all hopes of the lark's escape were now abandoned ; when ils former deliverers, the crows, having nearly doubled Iheir number by a rein- forcement from a neighbouring wood, suddenly arrived lo its rescue; but Ihe liltle animal, quite exhausted by its efforts, liie third lime appealing to the humanity of man, descended 011 the deck, and was secured, till con- sidered sufficiently distant from ils enemy, when it was suffered to escape. On the 17th till, the youths of St. Martin's, Birming- ham, ascended the tower of Aston Church, and rung a true pe . l of Grandsire Royals, containing 5020 changes, in three hours and twenty- six minutes, being I he first peal ofthe kind ever performed there; arul 011 Tuesday, three who assisted in tbe above peal, with seven 01' the same so- ciety, gave a true pval of Graiidsire Cators, containing 50- it changes, in three hours aud twenty- eight minute's. Both peals were conducted 111 a most able manner by Mr. H. Cooper. These harmonious peats were given in conse- quence of Ihe addition oftwo bells, making inthe whole ten, which now adorn that elegant gothic steeple. ,}/ r. Kean.— One of Ihe London critics thinks Mr. Kean somewhat worse for bis Irish expedition. His pauses, which always bordered 011 the verge of extravagance, are now twice as long as they were. On Ihis subject ihe writer tells the following amusing anecdole t— 411 old gentleman, riding over Putney Bridge, turned round lo his servant, anil sairl, " Do you like eggs, John?" " Yes, sir." Here lire conversation ended, The same gentleman, riding over Ihe same bridge lhat day year, again luriied round, and said " How ?" " Poached, sir," was the answer. ' 1 his is the longest pause upon record, and has something of a dramatic eft'eet, though it could not he transferred 10 the stage. Perhaps an actor might go so far 011 the principle of indefinite pauses as to begin a sentence in one act and fin sh il in the next— Thus far Criticism. Mr. Kean, how- ever, never fails to be received with rapturous applause hy overflowing houses; and as long as this continues lo tie the case, the Managers will pay but liltle attention to individual animadversion. Mrs. Siddons is now at Paris, the walks of which she treads dressed in black, Ihe petticoat looped up before like Ihe Tragic Muse, lo shew her buskins ; 011 ber head she wears a small round heaver hat, aud a large plume of black feat he rs; so thai no Frenchman can mistake the British M elpomene. .'/ Boasting Preacher.— The different effects pro- duetcd by pulpit eloquence are well described hy the following anecdote of two French preachers: — Le Fere Arrius said — " When Le Pere Bourdaloue preached al Rouen, the tradesmen forsook their shops, lawyers their die ts, physicians their sick, and tavern- keepers Iheir bars; but when I preached the following year, 1 sel all tilings to rights— every man minded his own business! undertaken, for a bet of 200 guineas, to produce a horse which shall give any man in Eng'and 14$ miles in A si earn boat now works from Hull to Gaiiisbro', at ihc rate of 14 miles an hour. Sporting. — A match has been made between a sporting Kentish knight and a gentleman of fortune, which has excited much interest. The former has „ ., — in one hour, and the animal is not lo bo thorough- bred. Rainer is the fastest runner, for an hour, or fo" five, in the ceiUntry, and he, it is svpposed, will run against the horse. Female Coachee.— A new stage- coach, which lately St il ted from Sunderland to Shields, has attracted crowds of people at both towns, in consequence of the unusual appearance of a corpulent, masculine- looking woman, apparently about sixty years of age, who officiates as guard, & c. ller alertness in looking out for passengers, and the agiiity with which she ascends and descends from the top of the vehicle, are wonderful. Besides all this, the IvJy professes lo be well versed in the milling exercise 1 There is at this time an apple tree in a gentleman's garden at Powick, Worcestershire, in full blossom, though the tree has boriie a full crop this year.

About five years since, his daughter bad a violent scorbutic or scrofulous complaint, which reduced her 10 so weak a state that she could scarcely walk, and affected her eyes so lhat she could not hear the light During her continuance in this state, a friend, who had been much sfli cted in a similar way, and who was cured by taking a few bottles, advised a trial of vour Drops ; he accordingly purchaseel a bottle from us, and found her much better, and after taking three more bottles, she was perfectly cured, and icmains so at this lime. Since the above, Mr. Pritchard recommended them to a young woman who was covered with large blotches, the effects of a violent scorbutic disorder; but by taking three bottles she was also Cured, and al this time remains as well as ever she was in ber life.
