T FiLICAN OFFICE, for INSURANCE on LIVES and GRANTING ANNUITIES.— This Office was established in Lombard 8treet, London, in the Year 1797, by a numerous and respectable Proprietary; and the BOARD or DIRECTORS, with confidence, arising from the increased prosperity of, and permanency of the Establishment, as well as from the experience of its usefulness and benefit to the Public, think it due to those who may be still unacquainted with the importance and advantage of L i f t INSURANCE, hficfly to suggest some of its leading and peculiar Recommendations to almost every degree - and rank iu Society. Life Insurance is of manifest consequence to all who hold Estates for Life, Situations and Offices, Civil, Ecclesiastical, or Professional; to Officers in the Army and Navy, & c.; as, by payment of an Annual Premium, the Party insured is enabled to provide for Wife, Children, or others, whose future welfare he may wish in vain, by other means to promote. It affords a permanent Ultimate Security to those who advance Money upon Annuities or otherwise. It renders Leases, determinable on one or more Lives, nearly equal in value to Freehold Estates, as an Insurance to the amount of the. l'ine, payable on the demise of a party nominated in such Leases, will produce the sum required for Renewal. It is a cheering refuge to parties engaged in extensive and speculative Undertakings: it affords to Persons iti ' Trade the certain means of indemnification against a bad or doubtful Debt: in short, Life Insurance, established in policy, sanctioned by Government, and confirmed hy the test of experience, is become, to almost every situation of human life, a measure equally important, useful, and beneficial. Annuities are granted upon the most equitable Terms, under a Special Act of Parliament, granted to this Office. T H O M A S L ' A R K E , SEC. PELICAN COMPANY'S AGENTS.

LEAKE's GENUINE PILLS, So justly famous for their superior Efficacy in curing every Degree and Symptom of the Venereal Disease, the Scurvy, & c. without Confinement or Restraint of Diet, in an easy, expeditious, safe, and secret manner.— One small tasteless Pill is a Dose, its Operation imperceptible and requiring no particular attention. IN fifteen days they generally cure those cruel Disorders; and where t. hey " fail in that time of perfectly restoring Health, the Patient has the happy assurance that he or she is at the eve of being so restored, let the degree of malignancy he ever so great. It is an excellency peculiar to these Pills, to make directly to the complaining part, and enter into contest with the offending matter, which they speedily dislodge and expel. They arc declared by experience to be a Preserver of Health, as well as a Restorer, by taking only EIGHT single Pills, Spring and Fall, in every Year: in short, the Patentee has this extraordinary obligation to them, that whatever he promised himself from them, they were sure to fulfil and exceed, as though impatient of immortal and universal fame. These Pills are most worthy a place in the Cabinets of Masters and Captains of Ships; the more so, for that they will keep good in all Climates any length of time, and that they have now borne the test of near sixty years, with increasing credit to themselves and honour to their Author; insomuch, that during the last eight years they have radically cured upwards of 40,000 Persons many of whom had been discharged from Hospitals, where Sail vation had been frequently repeated, and all other methods made use of without effect. CORDIAL BALM OF GI LEAD. LADIES of a cold, acrid, or a bilious habit of body, affected with languor, head- ache, or hysterical affections, cannot have recourse to a more salutary remedy than the Cordial Balm of Gilead. To Gentlemen from the East or West Indies, the Student from public Seminaries, or those whose occupations require a sedentary life, this medicine has effected wonderful cures in cases of debility, originating from heat of climate, or relaxations from juvenile indiscretions, and the effects of intense application to study or business.

RE- INTERMENT OF THE REMAINS OF LOUIS XVL AND MARIE ANTOINETTE, AT ST. DENIS. PARIS, Jan. 22.— The removal of the mortal remains of King Louis XVI. and Queen Marie Antoinette, Archduchess of Austria, took place yesterday ; the procession left the Rue d'Anjou at nine in the morning; the arrangement was simple and majestic. All the places through which it passed were doubly lined with spectators, who preserved the utmost silence and gravity of deportment, and were penetrated with the deep feelings with which the object of such a ceremony demanded, A great part of the inhabitants of Paris repaired to St. Denis. Another portion, not less considerable, filled the difFerent churches of the capital.— The most perfect order reigned. At eight o'clock Monsieur, and the Princes his sons, went from the Thuilleries to the Cemetry of the Magdalen, where tlicv entered the tent in which were laid the bodies of the martyred King and his august Spouse. The first stone of the chapel to be built on the place where the remains of the King and Queen were found, was laid in the presence of the Princes. The coffins were placed in a hearse by the gardes de corps. At the instant when the venerable remains left the Cemetery, all the spectators fell spontaneously on their knees. It was impossible to have witnessed a more affecting sight. By a singular coincidence the Princede Poix commanded the King's Household in this expiatory ceremony, as he had commanded it with so much devotedncss and fidelity on the 18th of August. The procession arrived in the following order at St. Deals. The Governor of Paris and his Staff. The Officers of rlic Garrison. The Royal Grenadiers. Three Carriages witii eight horses, with emblazoned trappings ' The BlaCk and Grey Musketeers. The Gens d'Arines of the Guard. Five carriages with eight horses, with emblazoned trappings and escutcheons. Three carriages of eight horses caparisoned with mourning. [ These were the coaches of the Princes and Princesses of the Blood ; Monsieur; the Dukes of Angouleme, Berrv, and Orleans; Mademoiselle of Orleans ; the Duchess of Bourbon.] The Kings and Heralds of Arms. ' The Hearse. Several Corps of Cavalry. The nave was divided by a porch, formed by a great gothic arch, and hung with black as well as the rest of the church. Beyond the porch, under a large canopy, adorned with ermine, was raised the catafalio, composed of sarcophagus, surmounted by an urn, surrounded by a mortuary cloth, a mantle of gold cloth, and the royal mantle, all covered with crape. At the foot of the sarcophagus were laid the crown, the sceptre, and the hand of justice. The base of the sarcophagus was disposed so as to receive the two coffins, which were borne in and laid by the Guards of the Scots' company. Both were covered with black, adorneffliy a large white cross, in the centre of which was a plate of Vermillion colour, with the inscription. On the right of the monuments were the stalls destined for the Princes, and the - benches of the Marshals, the Ministers M. Deseze, M. Decloseaux, the Clergy of the Grand Almonry, the principal Officers of the Household; the stalls appointed for the Princesses; the benches occupied by the Generals, the Ambassadors, a great number of the Members of the Houses of Peers and Deputies. Other benches were reserved for the deputations of the Sovereign Courts, of the Departmental, and Municipal Bodies of Paris. The Bishop of Aire officiated at the Altar in the absence of the Grand Almoner, who is seriously indisposed. After the offering the Bishop of Troycs appeared in the evangelic pulpit, being appointed to deiiver the funeral oration. His debut in the career of eloquence was the eloge of Louis the Dauphin, father of I. ouis XVI. and now he terminates his career bv the funeral oration of the Royal Son, who died on the scaffold. He was only acquainted with the wish Of the King, that he should deliver this discourse, on the 10th of January : he had then but ten days to prepare and deliver a discourse, the importance of which would have alarmed Bossuet himself. He chose as his text— No interficias cum quis enimmittet rnanum in Christum Domini et salens erit T When the Bishop left t he pulpit, the officiator continued and concluded the Holy Sacrifice. After the five absolutions which followed mass, four Bishops seated themselves at the entrance of a vault, as at the mouth of a grave. The funeral was then concluded in the ordinary manner. Our Kings have no peculiar rites; when their children are born their names arc inscribed in tlie Parish Register, and when they die, the earth of the common churchyard is thrown on theni. WhentlieGentlemen of the Scots" Guard had lowered the coffins, a handful of earth was thrown upon them, and the Clergy returned to the Sacristy. Monsieur, the Princes, his sons, the great Officers, and Heaids, descended into the vault, aud remained there fur some moments. When they had re- ascended, the stones of the tombs were re- placed. It was about half- past five. At half- past six the Princes were oil their road towards. Paris. Soult and Oudinot held the pall over the coffin of Louis the Sixteenth, at his re- interment. The Presidents, Barthelepiy and Laine, the pall over the coffin of the Queen. But not amongst ihe least interesting assistants at the ceremony were 1\ IM. Title, Dcselo, and Descloseaux. The first had remained constantly with the King till his death ; the second ably defended him at the Bar of the Convention ; and the third had preserved and watched over his mortal remains.

In the year 1800, 1 had a violent Rheumatic Fever after suffering severely a long time, it left a Scorbutic Complaint, which broke out in several ulcers on the thigh and hip, and at times my whole body was covered with spots, attended with a violent itching, that rendered life itself irksome. Various attempts were made hy the eminent faculty, which did not even alleviate my afflictions ; in fact, 1 got daily worse, was! reduced to the last extremity, and despaired of finding reliefin this world, when accident thtew a Salop'newspaper in my way. 1 there found a case similar to my own, cured by your e oi wunour enecr. t „ - , • ,, , , ' . , , Prepared and sold by the sole Proprietor, THOMAS TAYLOR, .* ' . ~ .. 1 . .* - I mAinnteisdc otorbeuiVtice thDerooi pas . r- rAi. ist thiiei . tl asrt mrermf tn, a1nt1 of « ohi, otlp e ho1t ! d et- t efrit- Member of the Royal College of Surgeons, Loudon, at his House, No. 9, New Bridge- Street; where, after a constant residence of more than forty years, in a practice particularly directed to the Cure of Venereal Complaints and those indi-' dental to the Parts of Generation in both Sexes, with that inviolable secrecy which men of his Profession should always observe, he flatters himself, the advice and assistance he gratuitously administers to Persons taking this Medicine, will be esteemed, by a discerning Public, as an advantage seldom to he obtained, and void of ambiguity.

PARIS, Jan. 20.— Sky- blue toques are sometimes worn with a bandeau of pearls, and two white feathers spotted with blue. Pink and white are the prevailing colours for bonnets. Flowers are much worn, but they are flowers of last summer ; every milliner employs such as have remained Unsold ;' tKere is, consequently, no particular kind prescribed by fashion. When a small cap of tulle is substituted ' for a coriiette uuder a. bonnet, it must belied with a figured ribbon. Merino pelisses are seldom made with only one cape; there? are in general three of different sizes. A velvet band, two inches wide, is sewed round the edge of each cape. With amaranth, which is mo. it fashionable, the velvet is vv'orri of t he same colour, and green velvet with orange Merino. SpciiCers of white satin, or pink lehatniiie, are made with a large cape, and trimmed with fur. Muffs are neither so rare nor so fashionable as they were some time ago. UNION- HALL, LONDON.— Tuesday last, a respectable looking man was brought to this Office, charged with a robbery of the most audacious description. Mr.. Mably, of Woolwich, stated that 011 Monday evening he was coming to town in one of the Woolwich stages; the prisoner, and a young woman, vvere also inside passengers, feme Time after being in'the coach, he felt the prisoner put his hand into his small cloPnes pocket, from whence He took a gold riii£, about ten sfiiliftgs in silver, aiid sevbraTpictes of paper, ort which were'written, memorandums/ ' The prosecutor immediately- dmrged'ihe prisoner with picking his pockets'. Who denied i t ; and, pre- . tending to be enraged at the accusation, accompanied his denial with a plentiful shower of blows. Mr. Ivlably raised his hand to save his face, when the prisoner, with great dexterity, slipped from one of bis fingers another gold ring. When tha coach stopped he; was takeu into custody, and searched ; the two gold rings were found within his pantaloons, concealed at the bend cf the knee; the lost silver w^ s found 011 the seat of the coach from which he had just risen ; and several paper writings were found in his pockets, which were sworn to by Mr. Mably. Several letters wCre handed to the Magistrate, which were found upon the prisoner, by which it appeared that his friends were of the most respectable description, and that he had formerly been a Captain in the army, and had also been several years in the service of the East- India Company. He stated in his defence, that he was much intoxicated at the time, and had no intention of retaining the property.— HE was fully committed.

" HAGUE, JAN. 22.— A courier arrived very lately from Vienna, dispatched by the Ambassador of his Royal High- J ness the Prince Sovereign at that capital. Immediately after M. Baron de Copelin set off for ViennaUpon a special mission." The preceding article favours a suspicion, that tlie Provisional Government of Belgium entertains some anxiety respecting the security of that country. This suspicion has received additional countenance from a statement that 15 regiments of the Hanoverian landwchr have been ordered to inarch upon Brabant. The Russian garrison, with tlie exception of the Staff and about 900 invalids, quitted Hamburgh on the 11th. The Senate were previously under the necessity of apprehending Mr. Scheftenan, who had insulted some Russian officers at the theatre, [ and placing him at the disposal of General Bennigsen. The General expressed his satisfaction at this act of submission, and immediately pardoned the offender. He gave a farewell dinner to the' Senate on the I7th, and left the place 011 the 20th, vi- ith the whole of bis staff officers. The burgher guard did duty from the 11 ill. They had a general parade on the 15th, and were reviewed by Gen. Bfennigsen, who seemed hlgly pleased with the terms ill which they were addressed by Senator Westphalen upon the recovery of their ancient freedom. The joy manifested f> y the HambUrghers upon the departure of the Russians may be easily conceived, when it is considered that they had been subject to the restraints of a foreign garrison ever since the 26th of November, 1806, when Mortier first took possession of their city.— Whatever sentiments were entertained towards the Russians by the male part of the population, it appears they were pretty successful in cultivating the esteem of the females; no fewer than 214 marriages took place with ( lie Russians in the course of the last severt months. The exchange on London was, on the 20th, at 31. 8. . HAMBUACH, Jan. 17.— One of the Papers published affirm?, that an Offensive and Defensive Alliance has been concluded I> etween the Ottoman Porte and one of the great European Powers ( probably France.). The Jews are at length to have the rank of Citizens in the Hanse Towns, as appears by the news from Germany; nrtd we hope this spirit of liberality may pervade all the Christian territories. The Austrian Government has, to raise a revenue for the year 1815, laid a tax of 50 per cent, on labour ; and the letters from Vienna state, thatfthe result has only been to raise in the same proportion, the price of all manufactures and articles of industry. This measure has procured the depreciation of the course of Exchange at Vienna. F R E N C H P A P E R S. The Negociations in the Austrian capital, were, at the date of thelast accounts, hastening to a termination. The affairs of Saxonv and Poland— the two grjat obstacles to a final accommodation—- appear to be definitively settled; and though the foreign Journals do not speak positively on the subject, the claims of Prussia seem to have been acceded to, according to the spirit of her wishes and distinguished services. The only remaining impediment is to find a suitable indemnity for the King of Saxony. The Monitcur contradicts the report of vast armaments going on in the Austrian provinces, which border on the Russian and Prussian possessions; and we think we may assure our readers, that the tranquillity of Europe will be settled on a basis which will guarantee its duration. The accounts from Vienna are to the 16th. One of the 14th says, " it is thought the King of Saxony will be forced to accept Munster and Paderborn, or part of the left bank of the Rhine." The transfer would suit the religious, if not the political, feelings of that Sovereign, as the new subjects arc rigidly Catholic; whereas the Saxtms are almost universally Protestants— highly enlightened, yet religious." The Duke of Wellington took his audience of leave on the 25d instant, which the Moniteur announces as follows;— PARIS, Jun. 24.— The Duke of Wellington, Ambassador Extraordinary from England, took leave of the King yesterday, In private audience, which lasted a long time, llis Excellency was conducted to the audience by M. de Laiive, the introducer of Ambassadors, and by Dargainaratz, the Secretary of the King in the conduct of Ambassadors. The Duke of Wellington is going to the Congress at Vienna; and Lord Titzrov Somerset will take his Excellency's place during his absence, in quality of Minister Plenipotentiary. The Gazette de France observes, that it is supposed his absence will be very short. Count Excelmans has been acquitted by the Court Martial at Lisle, to which he voluntarily surrendered himself, after having evaded the pursuits of the Minister of War, ofProclamation notoriety. One of the Paris Papers, in noticing the acquittal of Gen. Excelmans, takes an opportunity of contrasting the mildness and justice of the present with the last Government. It is said that there hate been serious and alarming disturbances at Rennes. l'lie troops refused to act against the people, who resisted some demand made for the re- Kef of the relatives of Royalists, and for five days they were in possession of the place. The Duchess of Angouleme went on Tuesday to the church of St. Denis, at Paris, and threw herself on the tomb of her parents, where she remained a longtime, moistening with her tears tire stone that covered the vault which contains their precious remains. She wished to enter it, but the key was not forthcoming. A great crowd of people were collected to the spot, who mingled their tears with hers. VIENNA, Jan. 14.—( Ertracl of a Letter.)— There is no truth in the rumour of the resignation of the Austrian and Russian Ministers. The conferences of the Sovereigns become more frequent, and this increases our hope of the pacific closing of the Congress. It is thought that the King of Saxony will be forced to accept Munster and Paderborti, or part of the left bank of the Rhine. The Empress of Russia will precede the Emperor to Berlin. It is pretended, that the future decisions of the Congress will be published officially in the countries which they concern before being published at Vienna. Nine of the Conspirators taken up at Milan have been sent to the fortress of Spilberg. The finances of the Sovereign of Elba are so- deranged",• that he is selling off part of the 260 cannon he found there. VIENNA; Jcnr. 1 5 . — T h e hope of seeing the grand discussions speedily terminated, increases daily, and now assumes all the appearances of certainty. The affairs of Poland and Saxony once regulated, the proceedings, which those two grand questions had interrupted, will be resumed with activity, and the materials, which were collectcd in the interval, will be worked upon. The Committee for the affairs of Germany will then resume its Sittings, which have been so long interrupted. It is remarked, that M. D. Talleyrand appears mors frequently than hitherto at Court. Another article of the same date says, " The Swiss Deputies now are in hopes of having their business terminated within a week. Tile belief of an amicable agreement upon thegrand affairs before the Congress continues to prevail. From all sides it is repeated, that all the parties approximate, and that a conclusion is al hand. A few days ago, a great Prince and Statesman was made to say, on the occasion of a ball, that in three days, all the great points would be settled, and in three weeks the Congress at an end. All parties, without any exception, promise themselves, that the Congress will be at an end^ in a month." It is said that by a Hew Note, Prussia consents to content herself with Saxony as far as the Elbe, including Upper and Lower Lusatia, but on condition that Anspach and Bareuth shall be restored to her. She likewise demands that the fortress of Torgau should be rased, and that Mayence should have a garrison, one half Prussian. VIENNA, Jan. 16.— The assertion that the Congress will break up in three weeks agrees with the report that the Emperor Alexander will set off on the 20th; his Majesty having declared that he only waited until the principal points were settled : his carriages are all ready. On the first day of the year, according to the Russian Calendar, the Emperor of Russia is said to have been declared Grantl Duke of Warsaw. The greater part of Saxony will be given to Prussia. The fate of Italy is decided, except the Legations, which the Pope claims. Dantzic, Hamburgh, Lubeck, Bremen, and Frankfort, are free cities. PAWS, Jan. 28.— Private letters inform lis, it is nearly / certain that the result of the negociations will be much more advantageous to France than was expected. They state that she is to have an increase of territory in the Northern Departments. NAPLES, Jan. C.— On Saturday, last the Princess of Wales . gavs a splendid fete to King Joachim. The Queen, the whole Court, the Ministers, and all foreigners of distincticn, were present. MADRID, Jan. 12.— It is currently reported, that M. de Cevatlos has submitted to his Majesty a Memorial, tending to prove the necessity of casting a veil over the past, and ot receiving into the bosom of the Peninsula the relics of all the shipwrecks caused by our political storms. This Memorial, it is added, has been the subject of several conferences amongst the principal Ministers, at which his Majesty assisted. It is even said that the result of those Cabinet conferences has been favourable to those who are under proscription in Spain, or in foreign countries, on a c c o u n t of their opinions or conduct during out revolution. England says she is dissatisfied with us. Mr. Canning, who still resides a't Lisbon, excites the conjectures of the small number of politicians, who pertinaciously believe, that Spain has yet the means of playing a part beyond her limits. _ It is certain, that the presence of an Ambassador occupied hitherto with the most grave affairs of England, at a Court without a Sovereign, and subject to dispatches which must arrive from the Brazils, is a singular phenomenon, and worthy to excite the curiosity of tlie Journalists. A M E R I C A N P A P E R S. Kew York Papers to the 10th December, and letters to the 29th, have been received. Mr. Dallas, Secretary of the Treasury, had sent a letter to the Senate, the like of which was never before seen or heard of, for the candour of explanation anil the boldness of its disclosure. It had produced almost universal consternation npd despondence. " All the props of Government seem to be giving way," says one of the American Papers; and, adds Mr. I- Ianson, a Member of Congress, " the picture drawn by Mr. Dallas is not so had as the reality. So completely empty is the Treasury, and destitute of credit, that funds cannot be obtained to defray the current ordinary expellees of the different departments. The Treasury is obliged to borrow pitiful sums which it would disgrace a merchant to. ask for. It is at this moment unable to pay even its stationery bill." ' There are accounts of the' Wasp sloop of war, belonging to the United States, being at sea, off the Southern coast, on the 10th November. She had burnt a vessel bound for Amelia Island. The Lacedemonian frigate c'hased her and fired at her, off Savannah, shout the 10th November; but the private letters from New York, of December 23d, bring an account of her capture by the Lacedemonian. ' The New York Gazette of the 26th makes mention of the sailing of the Constitution from Boston, but nothing is said of the other frigates. A letter from Commodore M'D'onough, dated November 6, gives an account of the capture, on Lake Champlain, of an English sloop, with stores, amounting to 17,000lbs. weight of powder, with seme shot. General M'Arthur has made a short excursion into Canada, and defeated a body of militia. Mr, Gaillard has been chosen President of the Senate o f the United States, PRO TEiiroRR, in the place of Mr. Gerry, deceased.- Gaillard had 16 votes, and King 10. The Tax Bills meet with great opposition. We do not recollect ever to have received American Papers of a more gloomy tendency, Not a voice is heard for war. FROM THE LONDON GAZETTE, Jan. 28, The Gazette contains a Letter from Captain Sir George R. Collier, K. C. B. of his Majesty's ship Leander, addressed to Rear- Admiral Griffith, of which the following is a copy :— Ilia Majesty's sh< j> I. eander, Dee. 29, 1814. Sin,— I have the pleasure to acquaint you, that with the squadron under my orders, being in quest of the American ships of war which escaped during the late gales from the ports of Massachusetts, I had the good fortune, yesterday at sun- set, to capture the celebrated privateer Prince de Neufcliatel, hermaphrodite rigged, pierced for 22 guns, and having 18 mounted, 6 of which are long 9 and 12- poanders, and the rest 12- pou'nder carronades : measures 330 tftns, with a crew of 150 men, under the command of Nicholas Millin, by birth a Frenchman, and one of superior professional skill and eiiterprize. She sailed from Boston on the 21st inst. and is the completest vessel I ever saw. The activity of the Captains of the Newcastle and Acasta cut off the chance of escape from this cruiser, during a chace of ten hours, the wind blowing a hard gale. I cannot refrain from congratulating you on the capture of this vessel, as she had been chased, during former cruises, by upwards of sixty different British men of war, and frequently under their guns; nor didshe bring to, in the present instance, till the shot from this ship and the Newcastle were flying over her. I have, See. G. 11 COLLIER, Captain. FOREIGN OFFICE, Jan. 28.— His Royal Highness the Prince Regent has been pleased, in the name and on the behalf of his Majesty, to appoint the Hon. Robert Annesley to be his Majesty's Consul at Antwerp. AMERICAN FRIGATES. The Opossum sloop of war came into Plymouth on Wednesday, from the westward, with intelligence that two American frigates were in the entrance of the Channel. These, it cannot be doubted, are two of the three whose sailing from the American ports has already been announced. In consequence of this news, there was instantly a great bustle in Plymouth to send out different vessels in pursuit of the enemy. The Chatham, 74, Capt. Lloyd, on Wednesday received or- . ders immediately to drop down to St. Helen's, and when joined by the Bombay, 74, Capt. Bazeley, from the Downs, to put to sea in execution of sealed orders. The Bombay joined he!' on Saturday, and the Lame, 20, Capt. Lowe, and the whole sailed on Sunday, consisting of the Chatham, Bombay, Larne, and Zephyr. His Majesty's ships Centaur, York, Liverpool, and Phillimore, which sailed from Plymouth in search of the American frigates were driven back to that port on Saturday by the contrary winds. Sir George Collier, in the Leancler, with the Newcastle and Acasta frigates, were off Fayal on the 11 til instant, and the Euphrates frigate was at F'ayal on the 13th. The Expedition against New Orleans sailed from Jamaica on the lst of December, and was expected to reach its destination in about ten days from the above date. GREENOCK, Jan. 26.— Arrived on Tuesday, the Rebecca, Rowe, from Port Royal, Jamaica.' sailcd thence 7th ult. with a fleet of seven sail, bound for Halifax, under convoy of the Florida; came through the Gulpli of Florida, and parted company off that port, on the 25th, Capt. Rowe brings advice that Admiral Cochrane, iti the Tonnant, 80, sailed from Port Royal, the 1st of December, to join the expedition assembled in Negrif Bay, to proceed against New Orleans, and which was ready for a start the moment the Admiral joined ; and the force was so great, that the most confident expectations were entertained of the success of the attempt, the result of of which we may expect to hear in a very short time. CORK, JAN, 2 4 , — A n Expedition is to sail immediately from this harbour, the destination of which is said to be Bermuda,— The 28th and 79th regiments, now quartered in this garrison, have received orders to embark on Thursday next, on board the transports at Cove; the 71st regiment, quartered at Limerick, also a regiment at Fermoy, have received the route for the like purpose. We perceive by the Portsmouth paper that the 52d regiment has sailed from that harbour to call ofl'this port to join the above regiments, when the whole will sail under convoy of his Majesty's ship Boyne, Capt. Maitland. _ General Sir IT. Calvert, Adjutant- General to the British Forces, is expected at Portsmouth iu the course of this week, to proceed from thence upon a special and confidential mission to America. REDUCTION OF THE MILITIA. The further reduction of the militia of Great Britain aiid Ireland is intended to take place on the loth of February.— The Royal Cumberland Militia, at present in the Castleof Edinburgh, are under orders to march to Carlisle, to be disembodied. The Royal Ayrshire, Forfarshire, and Edinburgh regiments of militia, at present in Ireland, are under orders for Scotland. Oil their arrival, a route to their respective counties will await them for the same purpose. ' The Shropshire, Second Somerset, and East Middlesex regiments of militia, are also ordered from Dublin to their respective counties, to be disembodied. The Cheshire, West Essex, and first and second Lancaster, and the Wiltshire, are on their passage from Ireland with the same view. Colonel Quentin has, within these few days, embarked at Brighton for France. It is rumoured that this sudden trip has for its object a personal recontre with Col. Palmer, who l. as resided at Bourdeaux; since the rising of Parliament. At a select Catholic Meeting inDublin, on Monday sc'nnight, it was agreed that Lord Donoughinore and Mr. Grattan should continue to be entrusted with presenting the Catholic Petitions to Parliament, An aggregate Meeting was held on the following day, of which the following account is giving in a Dublin Paper:— '• THE ACGRFCATE IMF. I--. TING.— At one o'clock Lord Fingal, and two Gentlemen and a boy, entered Clarendon Street Chapel, On being called to the Chair, he declined, because, he said, that faith was broken with him on the subject of the Veto. He disapproved the Resolutions, and retired amidst a torrent of hisses. Mr. O'Connor, of Belanagar, was then unanimously called to the Chair.— Resolutions for Unqualified Emancipation were then moved and carried with the most enthusiastic acclamation.— A letter was read from Lord Donoughmore, declining the presentation of the Catholic Petition ; but at the same time, exprt^ ing his decided conviction, that emancipation should be granted unclogged by Restriction, and unqualified by Securities," C O U N T Y O F B E D F O R D M E E T I N G. At a numerous meeting of proprietors of land, in the county of Bedford, held on Saturday se'nnight at the Severn Inn, in Bedford, to take into consideration the distressed state of agriculture j the Earl of Upper Ossory was called to the chair, and stated the object of the meeting. Lord St. John said, that nothing was so painful to him as to see honest industry in distress; nothing, was so heart rending as to see the industry and prospects of so great a bulk of the community going into the pockets of others. He trusted there was no one in the room but would agree as to the necessity of petitioning Parliament; corn had not been regulated by the necessity of the markets, but by the necessity of the growers ; he hoped he might be permitted to advise those present, as he- had done his own tenants, " not to sell their corn, but wait and see if Parliament- would not adopt some plan for their relief, and he would not distress them." It was a circumstance well worthy the reflection of every one present,- that we now received corn from France; the result was, that France - was a nation of farmers; they support not only Great Britain, but Spain and Portugal. He then proposed the resolutions. Mr, Foster said, the present system made us dependent upon foreign countries in two ways j dependent upon them for feeding us, and dependent in finding money to pay for it, and we were putting power into the hands of our enemies. If the present system is continued, agriculture will no more flourish here; it may flourish on the banks Of the Vistula, on the plains of Normandy and Picardy, but no more in the country of Great Britain. When corn is sold at a price that will not pay cultivation, how are landlords, taxes, tithes, & c. to be paid ; this year he knew good land would not produce 15 bushels- per acre, for which the farmer sowed 3 bushels of capital grain, worth double the price of that produced, which, with harvesting and thrashing, this year would about balance the account. Mr. F. concluded by seconding the resolutions. Mr. Whitbread was at all times open to conviction, and he was sorry nothing had been said to convince him that the steps they were about to take, would bring them to the desired goal— he was of opinion every encouragement ought to be given to agriculture, and we ought not to be dependent on any but ourselves; he wished again to see us an exporting country. Mr. Foster and Lord St. John had said, if we allow France to import, we are encouraging France to the injury of British agriculture; and We are told France lias so improved the culture of its soil, that she is enabled to overwhelm the English market. Now give me leave to ask my noble friend, whether France has not been blessed with a most bountiful harvest, and whether we are not taking that as the work of man, which is, in fact, the work of God ?— We have not in England wheat enough to keep the country, and if the average of 20,000 quarters had not been brought m weekly, the metropolis could not have been supported.— Are we, therefore, to look lip to the Legislature for redress?— They are always ready to assist, but sometimes they are improperly led to interfere, and then they do mischief? If you go to Parliament, and importation is prevented, would that make the lean corn plump?— would it be put in competition with the plump foreign corn in the market?— it is a delusion that yOu can have redress in that way from what at present overwhelms you. How long, gentlemen, has this existed?— How long have we fallen back in agriculture? We have not long lost that great friend to agriculture, Francis, Dnkeof Bedford. Since 1804 has there been no improvement ? Has not the improvement kept pace with the times, and the produce with the improvement ? Every body who has crossed the water must have witnessed the abundant crops in France, and on his return, must have had the most poignant feelings of regret at seeing the blighted state of the crops in his own country ; but how can tin? Legislature relieve this distress?-— There have been times when experiments have been made to starve countries at War with each other, but by the blessing of God it never had succeeded ; in the year 1792, it was a measure of this Government that corn should not go to France; and when Buonaparte, with the iron hand of power, was endeavouring to shut us out from every quarter, no less than 30,000 quarters came every week from France, and we supplied him with money which he as much wanted. There is no power on earth can prevent it. It is like the wind which bloweth where it listeth. Mr. W. denied that agriculture had improved in France so much as in England; it was not from France alone that we received our supplies, but from Poland and the Baltic. We are told those countries can supply us, because they are not troubled with tithes and taxes ; but what are the burthens on the landlords there ? Those who till it are slaves who till it for their lord, slaves without a bed to lie on, without covering for their nakedness, or shelter for their wretchedness. He was sure there was no station of agriculture in this country who would exchange their situation for any other on the globe. Suppose, says Sir. W. there are two farms adjoining each other equally well cultivated, with the same industry, the same care, and the same skill: one may be blighted, and the other good; can any thingthat the King, Lords, and Commons can enact prevent this? can any legislative interference make the bad grain plump? This, gentlemen, is a short view of the case; I would not advise you to goto Parliament now ! I am of opinion if the Corn Bill had been passed last year the distress would have been the same, for it could not have prevented the blight; nor will you be benefited if it now takes place ; next year Providence may bless you with good crops, which will exclude the foreigner; if it was not for him now, distress would be inevitable. These reverses, however, ought not to mislead us; if I thought there was 3 possibility to remedy your present grievances, no man would be more ready. Mr. W. hoped they would do him the credit to believe that' he felt regret at standing in opposition to so large a body of the respectable part of the county, but he knew if lie went to Parliament he should only mislead them. Lord St. John and Mr. Foster replied very forcibly to the arguments of Mr. Whitbread, and the latter gentleman, in conclusion, made the following. assertion : that it was as easy to change the course of the sun in the heavens, as for Whitbread to swerve from rcctitude and integrity. Mr. W. finding that he stood alone, very handsomely retired before the resolutious were put, when they were carried unanimously. MARRIED]— On the 10th ult. at Dunbar House, Scotland, James Balfour, Esq. of Gorton, to Lady Fdeanor Maitland, third daughter of the Earl of Lauderdale.— Thursday, at Mary- lebone Church, by - the Rev. Charles Anson, Archdeacon of Carlisle, Major- Gen. Sir Wm. Anson, K. C. B. brother of Viscount Anson, to Louisa Frances Mary, daughter, and only child of John Dickenson, Esq. of Birch Hall, Lancashire. DIFD]— At his house in Charles Street, GrosvenorSquare, London, on Thursday last, in the afternoon, after a long and painful illness, which he sustained with truly Christian fortitude, Sir Win. Charles Farrell SkefBngton, Bart, in the 73d year of his age. ' The family of Farrr- ll was, originally, of the province of Connaught, in Ireland. The direct ancestor of the Skeffingtons was John Skt- ffington, living in 1188, whose son, Geoffrey de Skeffington, was, in ia21, possessed of lands at. SkefBngton, Leicestershire. Sir William was born June the 24th, 1742: and served in the 1st regiment of Foot Guards for five and twenty years: he was appointed one of the Esquires to his Royal Highness Prince Frederick Duke of York, at the Installation of the Most Honourable Order of the Bath, in 1772; he was Deputy- Lieutenant for the County of Leicester; and he was a Member of the Antiquarian Society. At the important crisis of 1794, Sir William was Colonel of the Leicestershire Yeomanry Cavalry, which was the first regiment of Yeomanry that was completed and made its returns to government. Sir William Skeffington was distinguished, in private society, for the urbanity of his manners; and, in public life, the duties of his station were upheld by ardour, and maintained with firmness. He is succeeded in the title by his only son.— On Tuesday se'nnight, in Gay Street, Bath, aged 62, Charles Warre Malet, Bart, of Wilbury House, Wilts, many years a British Minister at the Court of Poonah.—- On Sunday se'nnight, at Mr. ' l'wamley's, Warwick, Mrs. Kettle, aged 61, relict of John Kettle, Esq. of Overseai, Leicestershire, and daughter of the late Mr. Twamley, of- Warwick.— Lately, at his father's house at Sealwood, near Ashby- de- la- Zouch, in Leicestershire, Walter Patrick, Esq. late of Jamaica,, planter; deeply regretted by all his relations and friends DEATH.—" I look upon death ( says Dr. Franklin) to be as necessary to our constitutions as sleep.

REVIEW OF POLITICS. < / THE advices of the last week from the United States are very impressive, if not very important, and require some notice. It is now obvious that the Government was so weak as to be incompetent to eiifofce its own measures, and the finances were in a state of such derangement as to expose it to great difficulties in the conduct of the war. We do not on this account, with some of our contemporaries, regret the peace which has been concluded, because it is of little consequence whether an expensive conflict be hazarded with James Madison or Rufus King, for it seems to be unquestionable, that however they may divide amongst themselves, they would unite against us. What they accomplished in the Revolutionary War is known to many of us as matter of recollection— as matter of history to all of us; and if without a government, without money, without arms, without any power but that moral strength which is inseparable from the human heart under exterior pressure, they could terminate successfully the contest, what may they not perform supported by the means with which they are provided? The reader perhaps smiles, after attending to the official explanation of Mr. Dallas, and asks where are these means?— But we will beg of him for a moment to relax his features while we notice a distinction, which if he be a politician, should never be absent from his thoughts. The wealth of a country may be in two situations; either in the coffers of the State, or the pockets of the people. When the former does not need it for national purposes, it should always be with the latter, where it may circulate for general convenience, and accumulate for individual opulence. Then when the State may again require it, it will be ready at its command in an augmented proportion; or if that command be not obeyed it must arise from, the want of energy in the rulers, and the want of patriotism in the governed. In both the one and the other we see symptoms of deficiency in the Americans, and hence it was that the Ministers were embarrassed. Had the war continued, these sources of debility would have disappeared before the public necessities, the riches of the members of this numerous community would have flowed freely and copiously into the great reservoir, and by this abundant supply all the arteries of the body politic would have been expanded so as to restore it to that health and vigour which would enable it to meet and overcome every obstruction. We are almost ashamed of saying so much on so plain a subject; it appears to us like an attempt to prove a self evident proposition. But we have had other objecf tions which have led us to abstain from such enquiries. In our public debates and in our private altercations we have seen so much of a coarse unchristian spirit of revenge with regard to the Americans, so much of the schoolmaster's appetite, who incapable of teaching, substitutes " confounded floggings" for profound instructions, that we have been hopeless that the still small voice of reason would silence the elamour, and we have anxiously waited the moment when we might be heard. We now declare that our sentiments on this question are purely and wholly English; that we would not weary the arm and waste the strength of Britain by the useless application of the awful rod of discipline, and thatwc have no pleasure in seeing a repentant and humbled enemy writhing under the agonies oither of the knoot or cat- onine tails. The conduct of Spain is sufficient to make us blusfi for all that is denominated regular authority. Who Would credit it ? The harmless and benevolent society of Free- masons has become an object of terror to the Inquisition, and the Supreme Officer of that sable Court lias denounced all Its members. Is the rage of governing so unrestricted and violent that you cannot leave mankind for an instant to themselves to pass a cheerful hour? Are the lessons of the virtuous Jovellanos forgotten, that the Magistrate and the bayonet must intrude into every merry meeting ? If we are not inonarchs in our own dwellings, what if he be King of m- Spain and the Indies, and the obedient sun rise and set in his dominions? " Could great men thunder " As Jove himself does, Jove would ne'er be quiet." The expedition to South America is at length prepared, and nothing is wanting but the royal mandate for its departure. But whither is it to proceed? Has Portugal consented to its congregating within the Brazilian territory? Is it to sail for Vera Cruz or the River Plate ? Or Venezuela ? Or Peru ? All is enveloped in darkness, and if we are rightly informed, the Ministers - of Madrid are not less in obscurity than the Mandarins of Pekin. / "" The acquittal of Excelmans in France has shewn that the influence ofSoult in his new office is not so great as to overpower the crown. It is not right that the Sovereign should be overshadowed by the sentinel. We see daily an improvement rapidly progressive in Franco, which can only be interrupted by the chaos of war. She has sO' successfully imitated the British Constitution as to secure many of its blessings. Switzerland is to be increased in the number of her Cantons, and 22 in future are to constitute the Helvetic Republic. We are aware of no inconvenience that can result from this alteration, if her great geographical boundaries be not disturbed: to the East and North she must have the Rhine, to the West Mount Jura, and to the South, the Lake, the Rhone, and the Alps. These formidable barriers, provided by liberal nature, have preserved peace within her borders for three centuries, and we are anxious that they should be retained. We have some information from Chitagong, at about; S00 miles from Calcutta, by which it appears that the native chiefs are not willing to admit the exercise of all the authority our Directors are disposed to assume, and frequent wars lay waste the country. It is impossible not to be under the most poignant grief in reflecting on what this fair and beautiful territory might be, and what J it is.— What was i t ? When Britain . was a solitude and a morass, Darius made India the 12th Prefecture of his Empire, and levied upon it a tribute of upwards of a million sterling, and he had then a very small portion of it. Two thousand years afterwards ( in 1497) the Portuguese passed the Cape ( then called of Tempests but now) of Good Hope, and for 50 years were masters of those yast regions. They have since principally devolved on us; but with most of the establishments theexpences exceed the revenues, and the Company, during the late controversy regarding the Charter, repeatedly assured us, that the Trade of Ilindoostan was not only worth nothing, but was incapable either of improvement or extension. What a magnificent and happy world will this become when mankind shall know liovv to use without abusing it! In a few days the Parliament will be convened, and most weighty matters connected with the Agriculture, Manufactures, and Finances of the country will devolve tfnder discussion. We trust that no partial views will be taken, that the interests of the land and trade will be considered as inseparable, and that both will be encou- _ raged and promoted. We are sensible, with regard to the T'inunces, that large demands are to be satisfied, and we know the inflexible justice of the British nation. All that is required is, that equitable principles of taxation should be adopted, that the great and the rich should contribute to the public relief in some proportion to the stake they call upon the country to defend, and that the burthen should fall so lightly on the industrious classes of the community that they should be capable of undergoing their useful labours, and of acquiring the fit reward for their exertions.

This morning, Mr. John Morris, cooper, of Wheeler Gate, in this town. On Monday morning last, Edward Evans, a young man recently discharged from the Nottinghamshire militia, arid late servant to Colonel Gould, complained of illness, and on sitting down in a chair, in the house of a relation, expired immediately. Johannot, once so famous for his performances in Astley's company at his Theatre, and whose gains were, at that period of his life, little short of 15001. a year, died last week at Bath in great poverty.— Johannot was well known in this town. The Musical Society celebrated their annual festival at the Crown and Cushion on Tuesday last.— An excellent dinner was provided, of which neary 60 gentlemen partook: after which a number of patriotic songs, airs, glees, & c. were sung, followed by appropriate toasts to the memory of " heroes departed," as well as living characters, quaffed in large libations of punch, which may be truly said to have flowed in rivers on this festive occasion. The company did not separate till late, and the day was concluded in the same way these favoured sons of Anacreon have always distinguished themselves, namely, in peace and harmony. About three O'clock on Saturday morning last, a fire broke out in the upper story of Mr. Cartwright's dye- house, in Parliament Street, in this town, which destroyed the roof, and consumed 100 dozen of cotton hose, and also some cotton gloves, before the flames could be subdued. Ths fire is supposed to have originated in the re- kindling of some embers, which the workmen had left in the stove, on going away, about two hours before, occasioned by the high wind that blew from the East. The whole of the damage is estimated at =£ 200. No part of the property was insured. We have been informed, that a small tenement was accidentally burnt to the ground, at Greasley, on Friday last, and it was with great difficulty that the wife of the tenant ( who had only lain in a day or two before), escaped with her life. On Thursday night last, a public house and liquor shop, in the Hartshead, Sheffield ( occupied by Mr. Smith, late of the Lion Hotel, in this towii), was totally destroyed by fire, and servant girl unhappily lost her life by suffocation. The rest of the family made their escape with difficulty, nearly naked, The fire broke out in the tap room; and besides the destruction of the building and furniture, 18 quarters of malt were consumed. On Sunday an inquest was held on the body of Woollettj a poor woman, of Southwell, who set out on the pre ceding Wednesday to see one of her daughters, who resided at Orston, in this county, but perished by the way, it is supposed, with cold. Her body was not found until Friday morn ing, in a foot path not much frequented, in the liberty of Thoroton,- near Bingham.— The corpse, which was disfigured by the birds, was taken into the parish church of Thoroton, previous to the inquest. A singular wager was decided on Friday last.— A person at Basford, undertook, for a bet of one guinea, to go from that pi. ice, to Mansfield ( a distance of 12 miles) in 12 successive hours, and to carry a bag, containing 1 cwt. of shot; He performed the- task in little more than 7 hours.— The pedestrian, we understand is somewhat advanced in years.

WM. EDWARD TALLENTS, Clerk of Sewers. Newark, 1st February, 1815. We understand that the Neptune Inn, Whltefriar Gate, Hull, which is by far the largest and handsomest inn in that town, has been taken by the Government for a Custom House. We are informed, from very good authority, that a revision of the Corn Laws will be taken into consideration by Parliament, soon after the present recess., and will be supported by Administration.— It will be proposed, we understand, to prohibit the importation of wheat, when that of our- own growth is under 10s. a bushel, and to prohibit the importation of barley when that grown ill this country is under a proportionate sum .— Cambridge Chmnicle. Elizabeth Garrod, the unfortunate young woman who was • shot on Wednesday se'nnight, died at the Norfolk and Norwich hospital early oil Tuesday morning last.— An inquisition has been since taken on the body of' the deceased, when the Jury returned a verdict of Wilful Murder against William Bendy ( committed the preceding week to the city gaol), and a detainer under the coroner's warrant has been lodged against him for the same. SINGULAR. CIRCUMSTANCE IN THE HISTORYOF LOTTERIES.— At the drawing of the second day's present State Lottery, on Friday last, No. 261, as first drawn above =£ 25, became entitled'to ^' 20,000, and was also drawn a prize of £ 20,000, making in the whole :£ 40,000.— It appears to have been sold in one Half, one Fourth, one Eighth, and two Sixteenths. J. Brown was lately convicted at Glasgow, of maliciously cutting the ropes of a gin, at Westmuir coal works, for the purpose of destroying the lives of those who might descend. He was sentenced to be drummed through the streets of Glasgow to Park Head, on the ,8th of February, and then banished the country for life. The ropes are. to be tied round him, and he is to be followed by the common executioner. Last week a servant lad was stopped near Barrow by a single footpad, who'took from him 2s. 6d. and insisted on exchanging waistcoats with him, with which the boy. complied and on reaching home, discovered a £ 5 . note ill the pocket, which is suspected to have been stolen from some person on the road. Stephen Kemble has bade his last adieu to the Newcastle audience. This great actor has, it seems, acquired a fortune sufficient to retire upon, without again making the " boards groan beneath his ponderous weight." BOXING.— A sanguinary battle was fought on Wednesday last, near Bromley, for 50 guineas a side, between Samuel Shepherd, a farmer's man, from Dartford, and John Jackson, a noted bruiser. A Gentleman, near Dartf'ord, backed the former, and Mr. Johnson the latter. During tbe first fifteen minutes of the battle, Jackson's skill gave him a great advantage, by hitting his antagonist on the head right and, left; but the weight of the farmer's man was ultimately successful. When Jackson resigned, he" was unable to support himself, and was obliged to be carried off the field to a public house adjoining.

P O S T S C R I P T . , _ LONDON, Thursday, Feb. 2. The following intelligence was posted at Lloyd's yesterday morning- It. seems strange that the French Government should aftord American privateers this facility. Wc trust there iS some mistake in t ' n account:— " The Surprise, American privateer, sailed from Brest the 8th ult. for the purpose, it is said, of cruising in the Channel."' The transports Briton, Minerva', and Bonito, have arrived at Portsmouth from the Mediterranean, last from Lisbon; they sailed from the letter place on the tOth ult. with about 40 sail, under convoy of the Bermuda, but sooh after parted convoy in thick weather. The Briton fell in with a large American privateer schooner, on Friday, off the Stan, with which she had a running fight from half past eleven till half past three o'clock, the enemy firing her bow chase guns the whole time into tha stern of tbe Briton, which did considerable damage to the sails and rigging of the latter; the Briton s stern and stern boat were entirely cut to pieces, having nothing but stern and stern- post hanging to the tackles. The Briton bad on board 300 troops, or. e hundred of which, the whole of them being below, were ordered to load their mitskets, which having been done, the helm was put a- lec, and the broadside exposed to the enemy, upon which the soldiets jumped on deck, and poured into the privateer a volley; this did considerable execution, and caused the privateer to sheer off immediately in the greatest confusion.- One of the soldiers on board the Briton was killed. The Allgemeine Zeitung, a yery respectable Germ a a Journal, contains a Memorial or Manifesto, dated at Naples on the 27th December last. It places the question relative to the probability of King Joachim's being allowed to retain the throne of Naples in a clearer point of view than any former publication.— It commences with ascribing his defection from Buonaparte to tbe pique engendered by the memorable- declaration of the latter, in a Bulletin at the close of the Russian campaign, that Murat was incapable of an extensive administration." Not; only Austria, Russia, and Prussia, but even England, have guaranteed the throne to Murat. That there exists no positive'treaty between this Court and Joachim, wein- hs not a feather against him: because it is asserted and not Dr. MARSDEN, and to Dr. MANSON, for their Attention to Medical Cases; and also to Mr. D A L E .

REMARKABLE FOX CHASE.— The Derbyshire Fox Hounds had a most capital run on Saturday last i they met at Holly Bush, Needwood Forest, and found near Swilcar I- awn Oak, ten minutes before one o'clock. After running a short time on the Forest Banks, the fox went away over Ropers Hill, bearing to the left by the Red Cow; then doubling to the right through Bromshall Wood, he took for Lea, by Park Ilall, where bearing to the right, he proceeded to Foal Bank ; from thence by Heath Ilonse, and Mobley, to Cheadle, where he made double, over Rakeway, to Windsworth Dale, and skirting Great Gate Wood, was run into and killed in a most gallant style, in a field near Peakstone Rocks, 10 minutes before 4 o'clock, the huntsman, Will Lawley ( a true son of the veteran sportsman Sam Lawley) and the whipper- in, alone being present at the death. This remarkable chase of upwards of 20 miles, was run without a check, and considering the weather and the state of the country, being nearly covered with snow, it is supposed to be unprecedented in the annals of sporting.

At Chesterfield fair on the 27th ult. there was a pretty good show of horses, but the sales were dull and at very reduced prices; store cattle was very flat and almost unsaleable ; fat were much lower. A set of villains infested the town at this fair, and attempted to do much mischief. One person was thrown down by them in the street before dark, and would have been robbed, but for people coming up in time. ' Another man had his pocket picked of his. pocket book, but it contained nothing of material value.. Mr. John Cundy, miller, of Whittington, was stopped as he was returning from the fair on foot, about eight o'clock in the evening, little below the Stone Gravels, and very near some houses leading to Whittington Moor, on the. Sheffield turnpike road, by two foot pads, armed with pistols; they searched his pockets, and robbed him of nearly 60l. in bills, including a draft for sol.; they did not offer him and material violence, and immediately made off with their plunder. On Saturday last, Mr. William Edge, a farmer, in Ashover Parish, went to Chatsworth upon business; on his return, it is supposed, he missed his road upon the East Moor, and, through the inclemency of the weather, was starved to death. 1 lis body was found by some friends who went in search of him.

' - astfereagli, after having deliberately examined it, At this Meeting it u- as Resolved, had made with lus own. hand, charges and additions, that That the Thanks of this Society be given to Dr. STORER, to | the English Government might make no difficulty about agreeing to it. The substance of these changes was, lsf, Joachim was to renounce all his pretensions to Sicily, and co- operate in securing to the reigning dynasty the possession of that country, and in procuring it an indemnity for the kingdom of Naples. 2 Jly, That the augmentation of territory for Naples was to be regulated for a population of 400,000 souls, and be taken from the Roman States. The Austrian Cabinet further declared on this occasion to that of Naples, that these changes were t o be discussed in concert with the Ministers of Russia and Prussia, and that all were agteed, that if King Joachim subscribed to them, all the Cabinets would accede to the Treaty by particular Conventions. This declaration was confirmed on the 10th February by a Note from the Austrian Plenipotentiary, as well as by a dispatch from Lord Castlcreagh to Lord W. Bentinck, from Basle, Jan. 22, which charged the latter to make all hostilities cease, on the part of England against Naples, and to take tiie most proper measures to induce the King of Sicily to do the same on his side. The King of Naples adopted these modifications, and immediately ratified the Treaty, by a letter written with his own hand to the Emperor of Austria, TRIAL OF SIR- JOHN MURRAY.— The, members of the Court Martial re- assembled on Friday morning at ten o'clock, to hear Sir J. Murray's defence. The General, after making somepointed observations relative to tlie conduct of Admiral Haliowell entered into a consideration of the charges separately, and had commenced the third, when the Judge Advodate announced that tha hour of three had arrived, upon which the Court immediately adjourned. ' Ihe de: arls of the defence are very long, occupying the greater portion of the evening prints. It was read by Major CutlifF. who was occasionally rc* lieved by Colonel D'Aguilon, and by Sir J. Murray himself. On considering the charges, Sir John went at, great length into the particulars of the retreat, & c. and contended that though intelligence was fabricated by the enemy to entrap liini, he knew to a certainty the strength of their forces. He then ad-- • duced a variety of arguments, founded on the strength and [ positions of the enemy, to prove the prudence of remaining so 0 [ long before Tarragona; and urged that by so doing he had an I opportunity of exercising that discretional power which wasgiven to him by the Duke of Wellington's instructions; from the fifteenth paragraph of those instructions, it was clear that no time for embarkation was fixed; and by the 22d paragraph, it was also evident that a discretionary power was given, and indeed so long as Suchet was kept on the left bank of the Ebro, those instructions might be considered as obeyed. In defence of his retreat, the General proceeded to state, that he would call the best evidence in his power ot the strength of the enemy. On Saturday; Sir John Murray continued his defence, particularly referring to the ineffective state of his force, which he maintained justified his declining an action with Suchet. He regretted the loss of the artillery, but contended he would have bten most uselessly, hazarding the safety of the army if he had followed the advice of Admiral Hallowc.- ll, that up to the 11th j he had no occasion to raise the siege. He gave ill a variety of documents in support of his defence, which were received and the Court then adjourned to Monday. . Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, the Court were occupied in the examination of evidence for the defence. From this Account, it appears that more Cases than usual have been relieved, and that the Expences of the Society have exceeded its Receipts. It is hoped that the Public will consider these Facts; and that Subscribers will pay their Annual Subscriptions as soon as convenient. As the Visitors relieve no poor Persons, whose Cases they have not sufficiently examined, and as they continue to investigate from time to time the Cases which are already upon their respective Lists, it is clear that much Imposition will be avoided; and that the Funds of the Institution cannot be misapplied to any considerable Degree.

As blest as any lout could be Was rueful Dick, at forty- three; His wile was neat, his bairns were few, His cottage was his own, and new, And every year he found his store Augmented since the year before. Some lands were sold, which join'd his cot, And Richard bought the smallest lot; An acre good of meadow ground, By pollard ashes ' compass il round ; And proud was Richard thus to be A man of landed property. No cit, of recent purchase vain, E'er look'd aroiind his wide domain With half the joy that Richard foutid Within his spot of meadow ground. So weak are men, depend upon't, The more they have the more they want; A sentiment, which, entre Molts, Is rather stale— but let it do. Di. 1; view'! his meadow gfour. d with pride ; But long'd for other lands beside, And long'd so much, at las: the elf Scarce thought of any tiling but pelf. For wealth at morn,' for wealth at nMit, For vv< alth at 110011- day pray'd the wight! At last his constant prayer was granted, And Richard found the Wealth he wanted. . Twas winter, and the frost severe Had made both coals and billets dear, Aud Richard, whilst the price was good, Resolv'd to sell his pollard wood. His axe on high he brandish'd well, And last the pollard ashes fell, And Richard then took special care To lay their roots far- stretching bare) For every prudent swain allows That roots will burn, as well as boughs. It chaiic'd as at one giant root, With mattock, spade, and axe to boot. H e clear'd a w a y the hartien'd m o u l d, He found a vessel flU'd with gold. Its shining store, and massy size, With joy illumin'd Richard's eyes, And almost breathless long stood he, His unexpected prize to see. Vixt by firm roots, that press'd it round, ' i he vess.' l would not leave the ground ; But Richard, if it's gold he got, Car'd little for the earthen pot, AWnidth home to fetch a bushel new wdd impatience wing'd he { lew. His loving, wife, with neighbours three, Was gossippin'g, and full of glee, When breathless ' midst their merry din Unthought- of Richard bolted in. With brighten'd eye and glowing cheek He stood— but standing couldnot speak ; His breath was gone— and all the four At Richard's conduct marvell'd sore, And each pre thought the luckless elf Was certainly beside himself. He stood, and star'd, and stamp'd— at last His words, orbits of words came fast. And loud he cried, as if for life, " The bush— the bu'h— the bushel wife.'' His words his wond'ritig partner heard, But never from her seat she stirr'd, And Richard wroth, with might and niaiiij Roar'd " bushel, wife, the bush"— again. The wond'ring gossips sxgh'd, and said, " Alas, poor man, he's off his head 1" He, niov'd by wrath's increasing flame, Still shouted to his frighten'd dame " I've feli'd a tree— a bushel— come— " A bushel now to bring it home." " Bring trees in bushel, neighbours see The man's as mad as mad can be/' A gossip cried, and quickly all Began aloud for help to call, And then both wife and gossips raft To seize the almost frantic man. He, handled in this rigorous fashion, At length grew truly mad with passion j Bouncing like bear around the house, He kick'd the gossips, beat his spouse, And they, becoming mad with pain, With mops and besoms fought again. ' Twas now, unseen by mortal view, Fell Discord o'er the fighters flew, More fiercely round the close abode The rage intense of battle glow'd, And wond'ring neighbours heard afar The shrieks of woe, and din of war. Blest with many a bleeding nose, Round Richard press his female foes, And ' gainst the wall, and echoing ground, Besoms clash, and mops resound. Until the nymphs of war decree To female arms the victory. A jordan of gigantic size L'ischarg'd its brine in Richard's eySs, What time on his resounding pate, A besom fell, of wond'rous weight; What time, too, for his countless sins A bucket broke his bleeding shins. Alas! that fatal bucket o'er Fierce Richard's noddle sought the floor, No\ v summon'd by the dreadful din Came the crowding neighbours in, And, mad with rage and pain they found Richard on the briny ground. ' Twits now the gossips told a tale, That made the pitying hearers pale, And all believed ( and all were sad) That Richard was in earnest mad. Their friend they seiz'd, With cords they tied, And fasten'd to his own bed- side, in vain he tried llis tale to tell, And ail in vain he struggled well. They clos'd the shutters, and alone They left their darkling friend to groan. And sent to fetch from neighb'ring town A doctor of 110 small renown. Poor Richard tries with might and main To free his limbs, but tries in vain, Aud ill th' adjoining room tbe crowd Wond'ring hear his speeches lond. Two hundred guineas first he proffers, And then a hundred more he otters, To any neighbour that should be The fiirst to come and set him free. His offers but convince them more Of Richard's madness than before. " He never had" ejtclaim'd his wife, " Three hundred guineas in his life And all the crowd agreed in sadness His offers were a proof of madness. The doctor cofnes, with looks of gloom, And lights, he enters Richard's room, And giving at his matted hair A long and scientific stare, To ever/ word the patient said He shook with skill his powder'd head; Oil Richard then to Work proceeds, He shaves him, blisters, blinds, and bleeds, And down his struggling throat he forces Physic enough for twenty horses. Emetics mild had due precedence, Then came cathartics beyond credence, And follow'd from the doctor's shop Draught, powder, bolus, pill, and drop. Long time eonlin'd, and physick'd king, Poor Richard, once so fierce and strong, Became at last so mild and meek, He scarcely murmur'd once a week; And, when he ceas'd of gold to tell, The honest doctor own'd him well. Ah ! luckless Richard, joy to the ® Came not with long'd far liberty. With feeble step he took his way To where of late the treasure lay ; But ah I he found the golden store Amongst the ashen roots no more. And when at home with grief he told ' I he loss of his lamented gold ; ' I he neighbours, doubtful of his brain, Conlin'd him to his room again. Releas'd at last— for golden ore The alter'd Richard prays no more; Though rueful looks remain behind, His lust of wealth has left his mind; And though at other seasons bold, He shudders when he hears of gold I ( The Wilderness.

O N T I I E B E H A V I O U R O F F E M A L E S E R V A N T S. MK. EDITOR,'— You will excuse me remarking, the above subject begins to require the most serious consideration; their faults have now grown to such a magnitude, that where one is found steady, and frugal, I much fear nine are to the contrary ; and this is in a great measure imputable to those, who good- naturedly suffer them to go unnoticed. To obviate this, would it not be very desirable, in every populous town, to establish a Society for the purpose of rewarding and punishing Servants ?— Tliat the laws on this head are very defective, every one wilt allow ; but against numbers, few would like to risk expence or exposure, although it is to be regretted a sense of shame. is nearly gone, one corrupting another. A trifling annual subscription would in time raise a fund, which might be applied, in a few years, in an unlimited manner— at present, in only a limited one, to reward those who having lived three years iu one family, could produce a certificate of such, with their good conduct, attested by their employer, which should meet the consideration of a Committee. Provided success attended this plan, rewards might afterwards be given for servitude for one, or at least two years ; at the same time I propose, any of the subscribers having servants who misbehave, shall regularly inform the secretary, who must take such steps as the committee may think proper, to firing them to punishment, at the expence of the said society. That such would be of the greatest utility possible, there can be little doubt, aud which would, in time, occasion servants to be of more real value than they now are; for it is unknown the extravagance which exists, and the very great plagues they are. I have now to'introduce a subject, which, being so closely connected with this, I should hope will not be considered irregular; 1 allude to the Register Offices for Servants, in various towns, which are a great evil, it being well known that those who keep them too often encourage, as well as give improper characters ; indeed, few families of respectability apply to these places, but as it is the case, some, from various causes, travel from place to place, and of course cannot do without servants, it would be necessary that the secretary should have the privilege of keeping a Register Office, under certain regulations, which would, in time, be of the greatest advantage, not only to families who subscribe, but to servants who possess a real value for character.—- How far these ideas of mine may appear impracticable, I cannot say; but so maturely have 1 weighed the subject in my mind, that I am thoroughly convinced it could be accomplished; and, I do not hesitate thus openly to avow, that t should feel no objection to take an active part, in forming " A Society for rewarding Female Servants, and taking their behaviour into consideration," provided some respectable families thought proper to countenance such a plan. ANCIENT T I T H E S . — N o tithe was anciently paid for any wood by our common law, until the constitution of Winchefsea; and then the clergy and other ecclesiastical persons persuaded the laity to the payment of them, alledging, that the great plague that then infested them was inflicted by God on this nation, for their neglect in the payment of those tithes. Mahomed, who conquered Persia and India towards the end of the 10th century, was a Tartar; he is hardly known at present in this western part of the world, except by the answer of a poor woman, that applied to him in India for justice against a person who had robbed and murdered her son, in the province of Yrae in Persia. How would you have nie do justice at such a distance? said the Sultan: and why then did you conquer, when you could not govern us? replied the mother. BURNING GAS IN TIIE APFENINES.— Sir Humphrey Davy lately discovered in the App'enines a jet of gas, burning six feet high. The gas was pure carbonated hydrogen. This is a fact of considerable interest in a gealogical point of view. The Appenines chiefly consist of limestone, and belong, unless we are misinformed, to the floetx formation. It would be of importance to know, whether it proceeds from a great depth under the surface. This is formed in great abundance at the bottom of dirty stagnant water during the summer time. But that fact throws no apparent light on the formation of gas in the mountains of the Appenines. MELODIOUS LANGUAGE.— There are some savage tongues in which verse of any kind must be impossible,— that of the five Indian nations for instance, in which, SAYANETSERIO TUGGWAGHNERIAGIISHEUGII, stands for Good Lord deliver us, and a prayer for all conditions of men is rendered Y'ONDADEREANAIYENTDAGHKWEANIETHA SIOKNIVAGODAWEAGHSE ONWEIIOGOUGH. The excellent Eliot translated the whole Bible into this language; but to render David's Psalms into, metre, in such a language, would require as much inspiration as to have written tliein. ITALIAN PUNISHJIENNT FOR DRUNKENNESS.—" T h e d a y on which we arrived at Rome, ( says a traveller, who recently visited that city) five men, who had got drunk the night before, underwent the punishment of dislocation of their shoulders. In tile Corso there is an enormous gibbet, with a rope run through a pulley at the top of it, by which the punishment is in- flicted.— Those who undergo it never afterwards have the perfect use of their arms." THE FLO JTINGWONDER.—( From Taylor's Mystery of Ghosts. J The bridge over the river Usk, near Caerlon, in Wales, is formed of wood, and very curiously constructed, the tide rising occasionally to the almost incredible height of fifty or sixty feet. The boards which compose the flooring of this bridge being designedly loose, in order to float with the tide, when it exceeds a certain height, are prevented from escaping only by little pegs at the end of tbeni; which mode of fastening does not afford a very safe footing for the traveller, and some aukward accidents have been known to arise from this cause. The following singular adventure occurred about twenty years since to a female of the neighbourhood, as she was passing it at night. The heroine in question was a Mrs. Williams, who had been to spend a cheerful evening at a neighbour's house on the eastern side of the river, and was returning home at a decent hour. The night being extremely dark, she provided herself with a lantern and candle, by the assistance of which she found her way to the bridge, and had already passed part of the dangerous structure, when she unfortunately trod on a plank that had by some accident lost the tenons originally fixed to the ends of it, and had slipped from its proper situation ; the faithless board yielded to the weight of the good lady, who was rather corpulent, and carried her through the flooring with her candle and lantern into the river. Fortunately, at the moment of falling, she was standing in such a position, as gave her a sci^ t on the plank similar to that of a horseman on his nag.— it may be easily imagined, that Mrs. Williams must have been dreadfully alarmed at this change of situation, as well as the difference of element. Blessed, however, with great presence of mind, and a patient endurance of evil, the good Iadv was not Overwhelmed by her fall, but steadily maintained her seat on the board; taking care, at the same time, to preserve her candle lighted, rightly supposing it would serve as a guide to any one who might be willing to assist her. Thus bestriding the plank, our heroine was hurried down the river towards Newport, the bridge of which, she trusted, would stop her progress, or that she might alarm the inhabitants with her cries. Ill both her hopes, however, she was disappointed: the rapidity of a spring tide sent her through the arch with the velocity of an arrow discharged from a bow, and the good people of the town had long been wrapped in slumber. Thus situated, her prospect became each moment more desperate ; her caudle was nearly extinguished ; and every limb so benumbed with cold, that she had the greatest difficulty in keeping her saddle. Already she had reached the mouth of the Usk, and was on the point of encountering the turbulent waves of the British Channel, when the master of a fishing boat, who was returning from his nightly toils, discovered the gleaming of her taper, and hearing her calls for assistance, though he at first thought her a witch, yet ventured to approach the floating wonder, and happily succeeded in reteuing Mrs. Williams from a watery grave, and bringing her in safety to tbe shore in his boat. RR. MAKK. UlLE INSTANCE OF STRENGTH AND SAGACITY IN A Fox.— On Sunday night last, one of these animals was caught ill a trap, at Bourne, with which he made off. lie was traced in the snow the following morning, by the Earl of De I. a Warr's game- keeper upwards of ten miles, and was taken out of all earth alive and strong. His pad was then in the trap, which, with three feet of chain at the end of it, is supposed to have weighed fourteen pounds. Another fox accompanied liim tbe whole of the way, seldom being distant from liini more than four or five yards. EXTRAORDINARY ESCAPE.— A daring fellow, of the name of D. Sweeney, made bis escape on Monday se'nuight from the Infirmary at Caehel, in Ireland, where he was taken, after his apprehension, in consequence of a cut from a sword on his head, and a stab from a bayonet in his knee, before he would surrender. The surgeon who attended him was of opinion, thai, in consequence of his wound, he could not survive.— In the room in which he lay two soldiers were placed near his bed, as guards; these he contrived to make drunk: aud then lifting up the window, v. hich was on the third story of the Infirmary, he leaped across a space more than seven feet, to a ladderwhich was placed against an opposite house, the roof of which was repairing, and got clear ofF. A sailor being on deck one windy morning, a sudden gust of wind took him into the sea; but by putting out ropes he re- gained the deck. His captain sympathised with him, observing he had had but an indifferent breakfast: not so bad, replied the mate, for you must allow he has had a good Duck. LADY HAMILTON. The origin of this lady ( whose death was mentioned in our last) was very humble, and she had experienced all those vicissitudes in early life which too generally attend those females whose beauty has betrayed them into \ ice, and which unhappily proves the chief means of subsistence. Few women, who have attracted the notice of the world at large, have led a life of more Jrcetlom. When, however, she became such an object of admiration as to attract the attention of the painters, she formed connections, which if she had conducted herself with prudence, might have raised her into independence • if not affluence, RoaiftEy, who evidently felt a stronger admiration for her than what he might be supposed to entertain merely as an artist, made her the frequent subject of his pencil.— His admiration remained till the close of his life, in undiminished ardour. The late Charles Greville, well- known for his refined taste in vertu, and who was a prominent character in the world of gallantry, was the Protector, to use the well bred language of the polite circles, of I. ady Hamilton, for some years, and when his uncle the late Sir William Hamilton wanted to take abroad with him a chore amie, lie recommended the Lady with so good u character, that Sir William took her with him, and having reliance on her fidelity, married her. Sir William returned to this country, for the purpose'of getting her introduced at Court, in order to procure a similar honour for her at the Court of Naples, but found it impossible for liim to enable her to pass over that chaste barrier which defends the purity of British Majesty. Sir William, therefore, returned to Naples, and thelatdy, by her own talents and assiduity, recommended herself so well to the King and Queen of that kingdom, that she became a great favourite with both, and particularly with the latter. The friendship between Lady Hamilton and our great Naval Hero, Nelson, is too well known to need any record in this place. It is, however, much to be regretted that she was induced to give those letters to the world, which were more calculated to display his private opinions and feelings, than to increase the lustre of his public character.— But she, perhaps, might urge the plea of Shakespeare's Apothecary, " My poverty, but not my will, Consents."— In private life, she was a humane and generous woman, intoxicated with the flattery and admiration which attended her in a rank of life so, different from the obscure condition of her early days, but always affable, kind, and obliging to all whom she had any opportunity of serving by her influence. Ail alarming fire, and destructive in its consequences, broke out, a few minutes before five o'clock on Saturday morning, at the house of Mrs. Walford, a most respectable dress- maker in Conduit Street, Bond Street, London. The flames were first discovered in the back part of the premises, and, it is alfirmed, the fire broke out in the work- vvomen' 3 room, oil the first floor. The number usually employed in the room was 12 or 13. Mrs. Walford rescued five of her children from the flames, but the sixth, a line boy, about 12 years old, fella prey to the devouring element. He slept in the two pair back room, and must have been suffocated before the flames could reach him. This unfortunate youth was afflicted with deafness, which probably prevented him from hearing the noise which the alarm of fire occasioned.— In less than an hour tbe house was a heap of ruins within its walls. Mrs. Walford had lately buried her husband and her eldest son, for whom the family was in mourning, and her present additional affliction is deeply to be deplored. About eight o'clock on Tuesday morning, this town Was thrown into a state of considerable agitation by the discovery of lire upon that extensive range of warehousing situate in Blue Boar Court, and which borders upon M'Donald's Lane. The progress of the flames was happily arrested before it had spread beyond the premises respectively occupied by Messrs. Scholes, Varley, and Co. and Messrs. Nichols, Massey, and Nichols, principally attributable to the alacrity with which the alarm was given, and the very laudable exertions of the parties assisting. A quantity of goods were unavoidably consumed, and a many were rescued from destruction, but not without sustaining considerable damage, as was the case with the stocks of many neighbouring warehouses, the loss on which the liberality of the Fire- Offices we presume would readily requite. We have the satisfaction of learning the property of the parties we have named was insured. Had the fire occurred during the night, from the confined situation of the premises, anil the narrow approach to them, the devastation must have been dreadful.— Manchester Mercury. CONJUGAL TRAFFIC.— Last Thursday evening a fellow brought up his wife, whose name is Ann Ilewett, a good looking woman, apparently about 25 years of age, to whom he had been married nearly five years, to the New Cross, Manchester, led, according to'usual custom, in u halter-, when, after being exposed for some time to a numerous concourse of spectators, she was sold to a robust canal boatman, for five shillings and half a gallon of beer I 11 EXTRAORDINARY C A S K . — A t a u n ' T A L OF J. limn, ON A CHARGE OF MURDER, AND CONVICTION OF HIS ACCUSER, ANN RADFORD, FOR PERJURY.— The trials came on at the^ adjourned sessious for Exeter, on Monday seVinight. Our readers may recollect, a short time ago, an account was given of tbe apprehension of John Bird, on a charge' preferred against him by Radford, of murdering one Buckhill, a gentleman's servant, about two years before. The minute circumstances she then stated were persisted in till Saturday, when being assured that Buckhill was on his road to l-'. xeter, to attend the trial, and confront her in Court, she voluntarily declared that the whole charge was false.— Bird was put on his trial, as above; the girl appeared in a most crowded Court, and on the Recorder asking her what she bad to say against the prisoner at the bar, she said, l* Nothing, Sir—- I am guilty." Upon which the Jury acquitted the prisoner. A bill of indictment was then presented to the Grand Jury, and found against Ann Radford, for wilful and corrupt perjury. She was immediately put on her trial, and said, " Though I know that I am guiity, 1 am advised to plead— Not guilty." Fler affidavit having been read, Buckhill, the man stated to have been murdered, appeared at the bar, and deposed that forthe last I4years, he had lived with Lord Iieauchamp, and came with Lady B. to Exeter in the summer of 181.3. During 11 days that he remained ihere he went often to the garden of Ann Radford's father for fruit; that be thereby became acquainted with her; that he never knew Bird; that lie never quarrelled with him or any other person about her. Bird swore that he never knew or saw Buckhill till the morning of trial; and never had any quarrel about Ann Radford with any person— has known her about two years; was with her on the evening previous to her making tbe charge ; they drank together, and she appeared rather intoxicated ; she was only 17 years of age when first acquainted with her. Here the evidence closed.— The Jury found a verdict of Guilty, and the Recorder passed on her sentence of Transportation fur 7 years.— Great praise is due to Mr. White, Bird's master, who within a few days travelled 700 miles to bring Buckhill to Exeter, who had lately returned from France. Had not Mr. White fortunately met with Buckhill, so circumstantial was the wicked girl's evidence, and so determined did she persist in it, that the life of Bird would have been in danger. At Maidstone sessions, Elizabeth Weller was tried for defrauding the parish of East Mailing, under the following curious circumstances:— In September last, she appeared before J. Larkin, Esq. and swore herself pregnant, and applied to the parish officers of East Mailing for relief, who allowed her 3s. per week. This girl, the better to impose on their credulity, had from time to time procured wool, which she placed under her stays, for the purpose of making herself appear ill a progressive state, and so completely were the parish officers deceived, that they thought it prudent to make ready for her accouchement; a nurse was accordingly procured, and the surgeon sent for, who found out this gross deception. She had but a few days before procured of the parish officers a quantity of child- tied linen, which she decamped with, but was pursued, and overtaken at Addington.— She was found guilty, and sentenced to seven years transportation. Ou Tuesday, two brothers of the name of Mort, who had been convicted of a conspiracy to cheat a person from Yorkshire of a sum of money, were exposed on a temporary pillory in a cart on Shudehill, Manchester. One of the sharpers inveigled the sufferer into a public house to treat him with drink for carrying a letter to Rochdale ; the other followed tliem into the house, under the assumed character of a di: charged sea man, full of money and liquor. They thus iuduced the Yorkshireman to gitmble with them, and in a few minutes robbed him of more than i£ 18, the whole of his money, with which the seaman went off. The landlord of the house where the fraud was practised, on learning the particulars, with the assistance of an active constable, secured the remaining sharper, and in a few days Mr. Nadin discovered the seaman, and found s£ 18 of the notes upon him. The Yorkshireman swore to his notes on the trial, and they have been returned to him. At Manchester Quarter Sessions, a few days ago, Edward and Wm. Mayston were sentenced to three years imprisonment in Lancaster Castle, for conspiring together to defraud the creditors of Fldward Mayston, by creating fictious debts and giving fraudulent securities.— Wm. Mayston was a Manchester warehouseman, in London, and Edward a calico printer, in extensive business, at Manchester. As James Elliot, a youth about 17, was travelling over Dibdin Moor, near Roth'bury, on Monday se'nnight, tie fell into a coal pit, about 50 fathoms iu depth, the mouth of the pit being without railing to prevent such accidents, though within a short distance of the turnpike road. lie was discovered the following dav bv his own father, who; hearing a sound from the bottom' of the pit, spoke down the shaft, when the voting man was heard tp sayj " I belong to llothbury, and ' both mv legs are broke." Mr. Scott, veterinary surgeon; of Alnwick, was travelling the road at the time, and took ail active part in endeavouring to extricate him from his horrible situation : having prepared ropes, & c. a man was let down the pit who made Elliot secure in the rope, when he was drawn to the top by a horse, after having been immersed in water and filth, at the bottom of the pit, for 19 hours. One of his legs is severely shattered and broken, and the Other dislocated: Mr. Scott immediately re- placed the bones in their proper situation, bandaging them up, and gave necessary directions for his conveyance to llothbury, where it was found necessary to amputate one of his legs. The young man was much bruised internally. While on Friday se'nnight a quarrvman, residing near Trencivvdd, Pembrokeshire, Was incautiously filling a flask with gunpowder, from a barrel containing near 40ibs. of tbe same, and his infant child, about twelve months old, being at tbe mother's knee, was playing with a small stick, one end of which was on iire, a spark was unfortunately communicated to the powder, which instantly exploded, carrying away the roof of the cottage, raid blowing up the poor woman, who fell across one of the beams. She was dreadfully scorched, and her nose completely crushed; the man was forced through a partition wall, being shockingly burnt and bruised, and the poor babe, who was the unhappy, but innocent causa of this complicated calamity, exhibited such a lamentable spectacle of disfigurement as to agonize the feelings of all who witnessed the afflicting scene. To the sufferings of the father and child death has put a period ; but the poor woman, notwithstanding the injury she sustained, was alive on Wednesday last. Large orders have been given for the American market.— One bookseller's house iu London lias received an order for • 20,0001. worth of books. CAUTION.—- We beg to caution onr readers against taking counterfeit three shilling bank tokens, many of which arcnow in circulation. We have been favoured with a description of two of them. The oue bearing date 1812— tbe flair and laurel upon the obverse of which will be found less distinctly executed than upon good ones, and the letters larger and thicker; the ring is well imitated. The hair and laurel upon the obverse of the other will be found, on the cont." « . to be more strongly raised, and the letters well imitated, but the ring bad. The latter bears the date of 1814. T H E LANDED INTEREST.— On Saturday, the 14th, a numerous meeting of proprietors and occupiers ot land, was held at Wisbech, and on Monday, a similar meeting at HornCastle, to consider of the means of obtaining relief from the present distresses of the Agricultural interest; when suit able Petitions to Parliament were adopted, and resolutions entered into. Meetings at Spilsby, Spalding, Long Sutton, ana Thorney, have also been held on the Same important subject. We have been informed, that T. Athorpe, Esq. of Dinnington, on his late rent day, generously remitted his tenants or. ethird of their rent, in consideration of the low price of corn.— Leeds Intelligencer. As a precedent to other gentlemen, Mr. Cook, of Whalton, Northumberland, with great liberality, has abated his tenant, Mr. Watson, of Riplington, 1001. per year, in th. , urse of a nine years' lease; and now for the last year of the same, 501. more, being a reduction of upwards of 30 per cent. HATS.— To our readers in general, and our agricultural friends in particular, we offer the following infallible recipe for destroying these vermin, which is copied from the European Magazine- for last month:— Take ten pennyworth of mix vomica, finely powdered or raped, one quart of oatmeal, one pint of boiled potatoes, half a pound of brown sugar, and as much milk as will make the whole, when mixed, into a dough or paste. Place this in the paths of the rats; and ill two or three nights it will not leave a live rat iu the largest concerns. This, with the addition of a small quantity of the oil of Rhodium, is the celebrated and certainly effectual secret of professed rat- catchers. CAMBRIDGE, Jan. 27.— The1 Rev.

ANTIQUITY OF COCK F I G H T I N G . — T h e origin of this sport is said to be derived from the Athenians, on tiie following occasion :— When Themistocles was marching bis army against the Persians, he by the way espying two cocks fighting, caused his army to lie- hold them, and made tbe following speech to them:—" Behold, these do not fight for their household gods, for the monuments of their ancestors, nor for glory, nor for liberty, nor for the safety of their children, but only because the one will not give way unto the other." This so encouraged the Grecians, that they fought strenuously, and obtained the victory over the Persians; upon which cock jigliting was, by a particular law, ordained to be annually practised by the Athenians. Though the ancient Greeks piqued themselves upon being the most refined and accomplished people in the world, callingall other nations barbarous, yet it has been clearly proved, that they were the authors of this mode of diversion. The inhabitants of Delos were great lovers of this sport; andTanagra, a city of Boetia, the Isle of Rhodes, Chalces in Eubcea, aud the country of Media, were all famous for their generous and magnanimous race of chickens. It appears they had a method of preparing thebirds for battle. Cock fighting was au institution partly religious, and partly political, at Athens, and was continued for the purpose of improving the seeds of valour in the minds of their youths, liut it was afterwards abused, and perverted both there and in other parts of Greece, to common pastime and amusement, without any moral, political, or religious intention. It appears that the Romans, who borrowed this, among many other things, from Greece, used quailes, as well as cocks, for fighting. The first cause of contention between the two brothers, Bassianus Caracella and Geta, sons of the Emperor Septimus Severus, happened in their youth about fighting their quailes and cocks. The Romans brought this sport into Britain, where they found a fine race of cocks all ready for their amusement. 11UL1. SHIPPING LIST, January 50.
