Whether an Attorney oc Solicitor, employed for one of the parties in a case, and discharging himself from being so employed, can legally become the Solicitor or Attorney of the other party in the same cause? This question, so important not only to Solicitors and Attornies, but also to every branch of the profession of the Law, and to the public, now remains for decision in the Court of Chancery. The object of the above motion was to obtain an order of injunction to restrain the plaintiff from employing as his Solicitor, in this cause, which relates to a certain voluntary settlement made by the late Lord Oxford, of certain estates of immense value now in dispute between tbe parties, Mr. Montriou, the late Solicitor, in co- partnership with Mr. Seymour, the present Solicitor of the defendant, on the grounds, that being covcrsant with the secrets and confidential communications of the defendant, he might reveal the same, and do great injury to the defendant thereby in the progress of this cause, and that suitors were privileged in all Courts of Law as well as Equity, against evidence arising from such disclosure. Mr. Montriou was first clerk, and afterwards co- partner with Mr. Seymour, pending the present suit; but on the dissolution of the co- partnership, about the year 1814, the plaintifFs agent or land steward, a Mr. Brent, proposed to Mr. Montriou, to become the Solicitor for the plaintiff, which after legal advice of Mr. Roupell, was assented to. After much legal dissussion for two days, and a very able and energetic reply from Sir Samuel ltoniilly, the Lord Chancellor said, he had only to do with the dry question of right. It appeared that the attention of the Court had never before, as far as he could ascertain, been called to a question of this kind. They were, therefore, totally without any precedent to guide them ; and the question must therefore be decided on general principle*. Whatever the decision might be, it must apply to all the Courts ; and therefore it was fitting that the attention of all or most of the Judges should be called to it before it was determined; and the matter must stand over in the mean time till lie had an opportunity of consulting with the Judges. Mr. Littledale, to whom the matter wns referred as arbitrator, has given his decision in the cause, the magistrates of the county of Durham, versus Sandys, requiring the defendant to pay the sum of 3,3S0l. 5s. 5d. for damage done the county in the improper erection of the New Courts of Justice, & c in the city of Durham. r r U - IE Annual Meeting of this Society will be held in _ fi_ the Vestry of St. James's Church, on" Tuesday next, the 31st of January, at Half after Six o'Clock in the Evening. ftj* Subscribers to this Institution are requested to attend the Meeting.

The following'PETITION, was then accordingly proposed— Was read, agreed to, and ordered to be fairly transcribed: " To the Honourable the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland in Parliament assembled. " The humble Petition of the several Persons, whose Names are hereunto subscribed, being Owners and Occupiers of Land, or otherwise interested in the Prosperity of Agriculture, in the Hundred of Bassetlaw, In the County of Nottingham, " SHlittT'Tlt, " That- t'ne Price of Corn has for some time past been, and now is, mueh too low to remunerate the Grovyer tor the Capital, Expellees, and Labour, necessarily connected with the Growth thereof. " That the Expences attendant upon the Management of Land have, from a variety of Causes, since'the ' commencement of the War, which has lately terminated, increased in at least a two- fold proportion; so that it is impossible for your Petitioners; to vend their Produce at the same Prices they did previous to that War, with any other prospect than that of ruin to thems Ives. '"' That your Petitioners, for a number of Years past, have been making great exertions, and incurring great Expences, not only in so managing old cultivated Lands, as considerably ta increase the Produce thereof, but also in bringing into Cultivation large Tracts of Land heretofore barren and unprofitable; the Capital employed for which purposes will," without a fair prospect of return to the Farmer, be directed into other channels ; and, consequently, such Lands will return to their former unproductive slate, a great proportion of Labour will be curtailed. the Produce of the Country much lessened, the Farmer reduced to a state of poverty, aud inability to Carry on his Business, arid the Public left to the mercy of foreign Cultivators, who will then have it in their power to exact Price* far greater than would novv compensate and content the British Farmer. " That / com the great decline in Price of Agricultural Produce, the Labouring Classes and Poor ( many of whom arcnot able to procure employment), are so much distressed, that many of them must . lecessarily be driven to that last resort, the obtaining ParoChiafRclief; aud thus another heavy burthen will be imposed upon your Petitioners. " That you- Petitioners are desirous to supply the Community with Bread at as cheap ; rate as possible, consistent with a proper remuneration for their labour and Capital employed; but from the great Influx of Corn, grown in Couulries not subject to the burthens under which your Petitioners labour, tin: Prices are now so low as not even to re- pay the Expellees at which your Petitioners have grown their Corn, without admitting of any Profit whatever for the maintenance of themselves and families. " That although the present Very low Prices of Bread Corn maybe considered for the iiioiilent as a National Benefit, yet your Petitioners are of opinion that that circumstance will eventually be productive of much injury to the Community at large, by withdrawing a considerable Capital from the Couutr^, which would otherwise be employed in the additional Improvement of Land, and, consequently, in incfeasirig the Produce of Corn; the supply of which, of British growth, sufficient for the consumption of the Country, your Petitioners are of opiniofi may confidently be relied upon, under circumstances of proper Encouragement to Agriculture. " That it is scarcely necessary foryour Petitioners to call to the Attention of your, Honourable House the fact, that unless such Encouragement is given to British Agriculture, as will ensure a fair remuneration to the Grower of Corn at home, the quantity grown must necessarily decline, arid the result must be a most serious and alarming dependence upon foreign supply, iii an article of absolute necessity; which supply may be at any time partially impeded, or wholly stopped, by various causes, totally out of the power of this Country or its Legislaure to controul. " Your Petitioners, therefore, humbly pray that your Honourable House will take into its consideration the Allegations of their Petition, which they * are ready to verify, and adopt such Measures, not only for their relief from the difficulties under which they labour, but also to protect rheni against the ruinous Competition with Foreigners in the British Markets as, in the wisdom of your Honourable House, shall be thought • expedient." I T WAS THEN UNANIMOUSLY RESOLVED, That such Petition be iugrossed, and be left for Signatures at the Angel Inn, ill East Retford, this Day; and at the principal luns in the various Market Towns Within the Hundred, on the respective Market Days, until the 8th of February next. And, RESOLVED, That after that Day it be transmitted by the Chairman to tile Members for the County, and that they be requested to present the same to the Commons House of Parliament. RESOLVED, That these Resolutions be published in the Nottingham Journal, the Stamford Mercury, the Doncaster Gazette, and the Farmer's Journal. I I . F . M E L L I S I I , CHAIRMAN. RESOLVED, That the Thanks of this Meeting be given to the Chairman, for hrs able and impartial Conduct in the Chair, and for his polite Attention to the Business of the Meeting.

Advices lravc been received from St. Domingo, of a nature not all unexpected. 1' etion and Christophe, the rival Chiefs of that Island, have cordially united for the purpose of repelling by force of arms every attempt to subjugate the colony, or to excite revolt and civil war. petiou, who, from having received a regular education in France, has been generally regarded as the more polished of the two, did not consider the French Ambassador entitled to so much respect as his neighbour Christophe did, and accordingly treated him and his coadjutors precisely as they would have been treated by the law of nations at any civilized Court in Europe. Fie has imprisoned one of them as a spy, and threatened the rest with a similar fate. The person arrested was furnished with instructions to excite a revolt in the event of the failure of the other branches of his mission, as will be seen by the following letter from Liverpool, of. the 19th, communicating the complete failure of the mission: Extract of a letter from Cape Henry, dated the 29th of November. 1814, received per Lady Gumhier arrived at Cork:—>" Medina one of the three1 Commissioners sent. to this colony by France, is a prisoner. On being close interrogated by the Governor, he gave up his instructions, in which he is desired to cultivate the acquaintance of the Generals and the natives, and, if possible, to occasion a revolt. He has been exhibited iu the church, to the whole town, and to the soldiery, as a spy.. Information was immediately sent, by Christophe, to the two other Chiefs, Petion and Borgelais, in consequence of which Daukion Lavaysse and DaVermati, have been confined by them.

DREADFULTORNADO.— From an American. Pajier.— Accounts have been received at Raleigh, from Knoxvitle, in Tennessee, of a tornado, which, on the 6th. November, visited that and the adjoining districts, and was attended, besides the destruction of private property, with tbe loss of many liv'es. It was first: observed about nine in the morning of the above day by George Jenkinsori, a labourer on tlje far- in of Mr. Goode, three miles from Marysvillc. This man, standing on an elevated spot of ground, took noii. ee-' of a wry considerable quantity of Indian corn in the air, part of which fell upon him, anel also that several trees, at some distance, appeared tolie farting. Judging riglitly as to the i course, he tjuear himself on the ground; but in a few minutes feU Iiirrjself raised, as if by : fn'invisible power', and carrie'd forward nearly 20 yards: at the same instant he was'sirutk by a'l3rge limb Of a tree on the back'of tire hc'acl, and reduced to a'st. ate of insensibility. The tornado proceeded fo the resideiicii of Mr. Goode, who with his family were sitting at- breakfast. ' All the trees and buildings were thrown down f- the1 side of - the house and part of the roof were forced in. A nephew of Mr. Goode ajid two of his children were killed, and his wife had her arm broken. Three oxen aud two hors. a and several sheep we're forced into the Lower Creek; which runs in front of the farm, and were drowned. The next visitation of the torpiictO was at Mr. Shuttle's. This gentleman, who was on horseback at the'door, was preparing to ride to Denton; on a sudden he saw his granary, m alt- house, & c. levelled with the ground. His house did not escape. It was wholly destroyed. Out of a family of 12 persons, five, including three sons, were killed. The horse on which Mr. S. was sitting was thrown on the ground, and falling on his side kicked and bruised him severely. The tornado now Crossed the Lower Creek; all the grounds and: houses between that river and Bruton Ville, being a distance of seven miles, it- It its dreadful visitation. The house of Mr. Child was blown down,. and himself killed; that of his neighbour, Mr. Geusee, experienced the same fate, and two of the family were killed; 3Ir. Miles's had the roof forced in, and several of his family were buried in the ruins, one of whom was taken out lifeless, and tluee others much bruised. Mr. Kenali had a part of the roof detached ; one mail was killed in his granary. The corn, grain, and pulse, which remained standing in the fields, were torn tip and scattered. The loftiest and stoutest trees, which had resisted all the ravages of time, bore marks of this extraordinary convulsion of the elements. Not fewer thau 15,000 were rooted up, and innumerable others, despoiled of both leaves and branches, attested the injury tli£ y had sustained. The tornado having reached the open country had exhausted its strength: and its effects were not observ- able within ' 20 miles of Little Pigeon Biver. The total loss of human lives is estimated at twenty- four. That- of property cannot " be calculated at less than' 500,000 dollars. Mr. Coke introduced the new Staffordshire mode of hacking, instead of reaping wheat, ill a field at Holkham, last harvest, which answered so inuch- to- iiU satisfaction, that he iiitdiids to cut the whole of his wheat crop next year in the saitie manner.

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. FRENCH PAPERS. The Paris papers from the 16th to the 19th inclusive are of more importance than they have been for some time past.— The articles from Vienna inform us of great changes in the principal Ministers at the Congress.— Metternieh, Nesselrode, andHardenberg, are said to have resigned or been displaced; but Stadion, the constant opposer of French politics, is said to have succeeded Prince Metternich. Some hope that these changes will lead to peace. But Austria is said to have formally declared, that she will not consent to the union of Saxony. England and France support Austria. Prussia, as an ultimatum, insists upon the union, and is supported by Russia.— Troops are said to be drawing to the northern frontiers of Austria, and General Schwflftenzbetg is stated to have been sent to Prague. Lord CastlereHgh and M. de Talleyrand are said to have formally complained of tho endless delays in the Congress, and have declared on the part of their respective Courts, that they will never consent to the union of Saxony with Prussia.— This intelligence is of a warlike character, and yet the Paris papers say, that on the l6tli, at night, advices arrived at Paris, which afforded great hopes of peace, and that it was generally believed every thing was signed at Vienna.— Genoa is said to be in the greatest fermentation.— The French Funds are higher. The designs of Russia upon Poland have arrived at such a state of maturity, that the new Constitution is actually drawn up, by order of the Emperor Alexander, It is reported, but perhaps erroneously, that, in return for Genoa, the island of Sardinia has been ceded to England, who is to give it up to the Order of Malta. The conspiracy lately discovered, of which Milan Was the central point, was a Very extensive one. Murat was the means of discovering it. The object, say some of the Paris papers, was to ' rise at a given signal, to massacre all the Germans, and to declare Italy a free and independent Power. It is hinted that it was not unkovvn to Buonaparte, and hence the Vienna politicians express a strong wish that he may be immediately removed to a more remote residence.—^ lint a few hours sail from the coast, he might on a sudden throw himself upon the Italian shore, and conjure Up a storm, which it would not be so easy to allay. In Italy, it is the prevailing idea that lie is not yet at the end of his political career. We are, glad to see that the infamous falsehoods of M. Auxion Lafaysse are disclaimed by the French Government. The new Minister of the Marine and Colonies, Count Beugnot, has, by the express command of his Most Christian Majesty, publicly notified, that the object of Lavaysse's mission was entirely pacific; that its only object was to collect and to transmit to the Government information on the state of the colony; and, consequently, that M. Lavaysse had no authority whatever to make declarations sO highly compromising the honour of his Sovereign. The bodies of Louis XVI. and Marie Antoinette, Were to be taken up oil the 18th of January, and conveyed in solemn funeral pomp to St. Denis, there to be inhumed, near the bodies of their ancestors, in a vault, prepared by order of Buonaparte, for his own race. The Princeswere to accompany the ashes of these martyrs. ( It has been generally believed, that I. ouis XVI. after his maityrdom, was thrown into a grave, and his body consumed by quick lime; that the precise place of his interment could not be pointed out, and " not a stone to tell where he lies." liut this is not the fact. In the Rue d'Anjou St. Honore, not far from the Madelalne, at Paris, there is a small nook which escaped the notice of the enemies of religion and humanity, Rnd which will now be revered as the ancients revered places that had been struck by lightning. In this nook are buried Louis XVI. and his Queen. On the 21st of January, 1795, the bodyof the martyr was conveyed, without pomp or escort, to the church yard of the Rue D'Anjou. A Decree Of the Convention ordered a quantity of quick lime to be thrown into the grave, ill order that there might remain no trace upon earth of the best of Kings. The silence of terror reigned round the grave— no one dared to approach it. Humanity hid the tears she shed, and turned away her eyes; Religionalone braved every danger. In the night of the 21st Of January, the Cure of La Madelaine, with his vicars, came to say over the body the prayers for the dead, , and sprinkled Ihe grave with holy water. All these facts are attested by Descloseaux, who is still living. In September of the same year, Marie Antoinette, condemned bythe Revolutionary Tribunal of Paris, intreatcd her butchers to deposit her body near that of Louis XVI. This demand was granted. In digging the grave for the Queen, it was found that the coffin of Louis XVI. was entire, and that the quick lime had not then consumed the mortal remains of the august victim.] A Paris paper says, that whilst the mortal remains of Louis XVI. and Marie Antoinette are conveying to Saint Denis, the first stone of the monument, which is to be erected on the Place Louis XV. will be laid. This monument will represent Louis XVI. having quitted this world, and flying towards his eternal dwelling. An angel supports and guides him, and appears to repeat to him these inspired words, " Son of St. Louis ascend to Heaven 1" On one side of the pedestal the bust of the Queen will appear in a medallion, having for the exergue these words 40 worthy of the wife of Louis XVI. " 1 have known all, seen all, and forgotten all." On another side of this pedestal will be * een a portrait in bas relief of Madame Elizabeth. These words will be written round the portrait: " Do not undeceive them;" sublime words which escaped her on'. he 20th of June, whe'n ! ier life was threatened by assassins, who mistook her for the Oueen. On the third side will be engraven the will of Louis XVI. with the following evangelical line in large characters: —" I pardon all those who have become my enemies." The fourth side will bear the escutcheon of France, with this inscription : " Louis XVIII. to Louis XVI." The French people will doubtless solicit the honour of uniting to the name of Louis XVIII. the namevf France, which can never be separate from its King. G E R M A N A N D D U T C H P A P E R S. The Dutch and German Papers contain intelligence " from Vienna to the 7th inst. which States, that the Plenipotentiaries of Austria, Russia, and Prussia to the Congress have been changed. This measure is said to have taken place in consequence of a suggestion from the Emperor • Alexander, who, considering Prince Metternich as tho - principal obstacle to a definitive arrangement respecting Saxony aud Poland, requested the Emperor Francis to dismiss him. This request was acccded to, upon condition, that the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs, as well as the Russian Plenipotentiary, should be also removed. Count Stadion, the consistent and inflexible enemy of French pretensions and of the revolutionary principles, has succeeded Metternich. Count Nesselrode, the Foreign Minister of Russia, has been succeeded by Count Capo d'Istria,; and Btiron Von Humboldt, Prussian Minister to the Court of Vienna, and Plenipotentiary to the • Congress, is replaced by the Counsellor of State, Jordan. It is expected that this change will remove all the obstructions to a friendly and immediate issue to the Congress. A Vienna article of the 6th states, on the authority of letters from Bologna, that a considerable correspondence hits been discovered throughout Italy, and that the contents of a Manifesto, published by King Murat, of Naples, has given rise to many conjectures. The Prince Royal of Wirteniburg has been formally divorced from the Lady forced upou him in marriage by the late Tyrant of the Continent, preparatory to his espousing the Grand Duchess of Oldenburgh. Whilst political considerations are divorcing one Prince they are producing the abdication of another. The Grand Duke of Baden, who married a Buonaparte, is, say the German Papers, about to abdicate, his health being very precarious. Genoa, which is now added to Piedmont as part of the dominions of the King of Sardinia, formally belonged to it. The old Liguria, it' we do not mistake, extended along the coast from Leghorn to Nice. STUTTGARD, ( Wirtemburg) Jan. 12.— Our King having this morning convoked in the palace his Ministers and the Council of State, declined, in a speech addressed to the meeting, his resolution to introduce into his kingdom, a Constitution of States General. We are glad to find by the communications from Cadi:!, that the Spanish Government has exhibited a more conciliatory and friendly disposition towards this country in commercial matters, than we had reason to expect from its recent conduct. A British Commissary, we learn, had arrived at Cadiz from England, From recent representations made to the Spanish Government, a new decree was published and sent to the several Custom Houses throughout Spain, charging the same duths upon 1 rench manufactures as are now laid upon British, and thereby placing both nations in this respect on an equal footing. A M E R I C A N NEWS. On Saturday was received an important American paper ( from Boston) of the 9th December, containing a Message from the President to Congress, with dispatches from the American Commissioners at Ghent, explaining the course and actual stale of the nCgociations to the end of October. These documents are of considerable interest, even though peace has been concluded. Early in October the British Commissioners proposed an article on the subject of the pacification and rights of the Indian nations. This proposition was acceded to on the 13th of October by the American Commissioners, who requested of the British the projet of a treaty of peace. The British, who thought themselves entitled to require from the Americans the first - projet of a treaty, consented, nevertheless, to wave this claim, and delivered, on the 21st of October, a projet or general statement of terms. The following are the principal points of their projet:— They consent not to require any stipulation with respect to the forcible seizure of seamen from on board merchant vessels on the high seas, the right of the King of Great Britain to the allegiance of all his native subjects, or the maritime rights of the British Empire.— With respect to the fisheries, they do not interfere with the American right of fishing on the Banks of Newfoundland, but tlicv will not renew, without an equivalent, the privilege of taking and curing fish on their shores.— On the subject of boundaries, they had on the 19th of August proposed a revision of the line " west of Lake Superior and thence to the Mississippi." They now proposed " the northwestern boundary from theLakeoftheWoods totheMississippi, the arrangement concluded in the unratified treaty of 1805." This departure from the proposition of the 19th of August, was rendered necessary by the fact, that a line from Lake Superior or from the Lake of the Woods, due West, would not strike the Mississippi. The new line from the Lake of the Woods to the Mississippi, will take a course almost due South from the Lake. The British Commissioners further stated, that in regard to other boundaries, they Were willing to treat oil the utl possidetis, subject to such modifications as mutual convenience might be found to require.— The American Commissioners, in reply to this note, decline treating upon the basis of uti possidetis< or upou any other principle involving a cession of any part of the territory of the United States; and strangely renew the request for ths projet of a treaty, though they had in the note to which they now reply received such a projet.— The British Commissioners, in their note of the 51st October, declare, that they have already in their note of the 21st, communicated all the points upon which they are instructed to insist, and require from the American Commissioners, that pursuant to their engagement they will deliver a contre- projer. Here the dispatches end, audit is not stated whether any contre- projet was delivered, though we suppose it was. Ill the letter of the American Commissioners, dated on the 2.5th October, to their Government, they assert that " their request for the exchange of a projet of a treaty had been eluded," though they had been in possession of such a projet four days before. They see no reason to retract the opinion they expressed on the 19th of August, " that no hopes of peace were likely to result from the liegociation." This opinion is founded upon the circumstance of our having demanded an augmentation of territory, a demand advanced immediately after accounts had been received of our having taken possession of Penobscot.— The American editor, in reviewing such of the documents as have been published in the National Intelligencer, asks," What objection exists to the immediate signature of a treaty of peace." The new Tax Bills were in their progress through Congress. The Bill for establishing a National Bank has been lost, ou the question for its being read a third time, by a majority of 104 to 49. It is supposed, however, that the measure will be revived. Mr. Monroe's military plan seems to have been deemed too strong a measure, and another had been brought into the Senate by Mr. Giles, which differs from the Secretary's scheme in several respects. It proposes a limited service of two years, whilst Mr. Monroe's army was to serve during the war, and might be marched into any foreign territory. The person on whom the ballot may fall is not liable to be seized and delivered over to the recru'ting officers as Mr. Monroe proposed, but is to be subject to a fine in case of failure or disobedience. This plan, modified as it is, does not seem to be at all relished, and the public mind, according to this Boston paper, remains gloomy and dissatisfied. The Vice- President of the United States, Mr. Gery, is dead. Mr, Gaillard is to be his successor. Some more American Papers have arrived, which confirms all the former statements of dissatisfaction expressed by the people of that country, and of difficulties experienced by the Government. Estract- of a letter from Portsmouth ( America), dated December 3:—" At tbe time the New Hampshire detached Militia, stationed in Portsmouth Harbour, were about to be discharged, the Secretary of War wrote a letter to a gentleman in the vicinity, stating, that a quantity ol' Treasury notes were deposited in the hands of the Paymaster, and wished him to use his influence to induce the Bunks and monied men to take the Treasury notes in deposit, and pay the troops in current money, at the same time assuring them they should all be redeemed, and the holders suffer no loss. Every exertion was made to accomplish the object, but the answer from the Banks und monicd men of the place was, that they had no such Government paper in hand, and the times were so difficult and uncertain, they dare not lend their money upon such . security., " Another attempt was made to raise by subscription, amongst individuals, a sum sufficient to defray the expences of the soldiers in marching to their homes, and a part of the money was subscribed; but when it was ascertained that the security for refunding the money was to be made in Treasury notes, the money was not to be obtained, and the militia Were discharged without receiving a dollar, except Continental money, or the due bills from the Assistant District Paymaster, payable when he shall be in funds, ail of which were from 15 to 30 per cent, discount: Many of the soldiers were from 140 to 160 miles from home, without a cent, and many nearly barefoot.— In this situation the troops left Portsmouth, begging their way in different directions for their homes. Patriotism at * * * * * * at 25 per cent, discount, and falling. The regular troops at Portsmouth have not been paid for seven months past, if the Officers state facts." The public mind in Massachusetts and all the New Engfand States is more and more exasperated against the Government; and the Meeting at Hartford on the 15th of of December was looked to as likely to be of the utmost importance. [ FROM CANADA.]— MONTREAL, NOV. 26.— We understand the neutral vessel will sail from the Sales to- morrow, oil her last trip up Lake Champlain, with a full cargo of British manufactures. Who would have expected to have seen a Swedish flag navigating exclusively an inland water belonging to the United States of America ? Our harbour presents a scene that was never before witnessed at this season ; upwards of 70 vessels, of different sizes, are now unloading their cargoes, composed chiefly of British manufactures ; and all the activity incident to a crowded port in summer, is seen at this period. What a contrast the war has brought about in the relative situation of this Province and the United States.— In the one commerce is more than treble; in the latter it has given place to to the despicable supply of foreign commodities, through the infamous system of robbery on the ocean : and the nation, which was once second in the commercial world, is now reduced to a dependence on privateering, on the mercy of those British Provinces, which she vainly boasted, three years ago, she would capture in three months. To a calculating people this must be an intolerable disappointment. Late on Monday dispatches were received at the Admiralty from Sir George Collier, communicating the important intelligence that an American squadron was at sea, consisting of the President and Constitution frigates, of 50 guns each, and the Congress of 38. Sir George Collier had received intelligence oi' their course, and had gone in pursuit of them. The British force under his command was precisely equal to that of the enemy, in point of guns; and consisted of the Leander, of 50 guns, Sir George Collier; the Newcastle, of 50 guns, Lord George Stewart; anil the Acasta, of - 38, Capt. Kerr. The two squadrons are equally matched, to judge byjtheir metal.— The Leaiuler and Newcastle are both new frigates, and built for the purpose of matching the President and Constitution. They sailed from the Thames some time last spring. PENZANCE, Jan. 21.— Arrived last night the American privateer Prince of Ncufchatel, 119 men, and 22 guns, taken about a month since by the Leauder, Newcastle, and Acasta; after a long Chase; out seven days, had made no capture; she had on board provisions for a six months' cruise. The crew say, that oil their arrival at Boston from a former cruise, they shared 1800 dollars a man, having captured 15 vessels. A letter dated Basseterre, Guadaloupe, November 18, 1814, says, " Sir Alexander Cochrane sailed from this about six days ago on a secret expedition to rendezvous at Jamaica; and Major- General Keane with the troops followed liim two days after— their destination is supposed to be New Orleans." Saturday lieingthe day for paying and receivingthe differences in the Three per Cent. Consols, scarcely any other business was transacted on the Stock Exchange. The account is the largest thaf has been known for many years*— F'rom the preceding settling day to the termination of the negociations at Ghent, great purchases have been occasionally made on American account, in the confident expectation that the result would be pacific. It now appears that one broker, who is known to he the accredited agent of the most respectable British and American merchants, had taken stock to the amount of one million eight hundred thousand, and would have made it two millions, had the difference been procurable. Another broker, who is chiefly connected with American houses, tool; half a million ; and several others, whose concerns are less extensive, had purchased less considerably. The aggregate of their purchases is estimated at half a million, making in all about three millions in Stock; the greater part of which will no doubt be gradually embarked in commerce between Great Britain and the United States, in the event of the treaty of peace being ratified by Mr. Madison. The transfers, it has been remarked, are, with a very few exceptions,- bona fide, and scarcely an instance of jobbing, and none of those nefarious practices, which, on a recent occasion, disgraced the Stock. Exchange, had on the present day of account been detected; and, to the credit of the Gentlemen of the Stock Exchange, notwithstanding the large differences some of them have had to pay, there was not a single defaulter.

R. P. SION HOUSE, with the Yard, Garden and Homestead 0 3 7 Near Croft ; 0 3 6 Far Croft 0 2 13 An account is current, that Lord Castlereagh is returning home; and that he is to be succeeded at Vienna by a man, who has done more for the honour of England, and towards the liberation of the Continent from the galling tyranny of France, than any person existing— the Duke of Wellington. His Grace, it is said, was to leave Paris on Monday, for his new and important mission. His great talents, incomparable services, and distinguished personal influence, will level difficulties and reconcile conflicting claims, which would be insurmountable to an ordinary Negociator. Report also alludes to Ministerial changes in our own Cabinet, Mr. Canning, it is stated, has been sent for express from Lisbon, and that he is to have on his arrival the management of the House of Commons, in the placo of Lord" Castlereagh, who is to be transferred, according to this statement, to the Upper House. Mr. Abbott is also mentioned as a candidate for Ministerial distinctions.— We doubt the accuracy of this statement, though it is believed that some few Ministerial changes are in coiytcmplation. 2 o 26 The news of the pacification of Ghent will arrive in the United States at a most critical period. By a gentleman who has just come from thence we learn, that the Democrats themselves began to complain of the war. The universality of the objects of taxation had occasioned great dissatisfaction, in a country where they have been so slightly affected by the modern system of revenue adopted in Europe. The bankruptcies were numerous in all chief commercial establishments, and especially inBaltimore.- Lord Palmerston , we have heard, will soon be elevated to the Peerage, and in that event will resign the important situation of Secretary at War, a place whieh he has filled with very distinguished ability. It is now said not to be true that Sir G. Bowter's estate has been purchased for the Duke of Wellington; and that so far from any specific plan having been arranged for the purpose of adapting that estate to the objects of the nation on this occasion, it is, to this moment, by no means certain what estate will be purchased for the Duke of Wellington* On Tuesday se'nnight.,, in St. Werburgh's church, Dublin, the Right Honourable Lord Kingsland renounced the doctrines of the Church of Rome, and embraced the Reformed Christian Religion. SUICIDE.— A most melancholy circumstance occurred on Saturday last, in the family of the Rev. Dr. Hodgson, Rector of St. George's, Hanover Square. The cook maid was missing, and every probable place was searched for her without effect. However, at five o'clock, the groom happening to go intb the hay loft, over the stable, found her Weltering in her blood, with her throat cut from ear to tar, and a new born male child lying near her, also dead, with a handkerchief round its neck, and the body covered round with hay bands. The bodies were removed to the workhouse for the Coroner's Inquest.' Who, without the most serious shock to his feelings, can have read the melancholy catalogue of convictions at the last Old Bailey Sessions? Six and twenty persons condemned to death, and amongst them two boys, one aged twelve, the other only eleven years! We very much question the moral right of putting such a child to death; but the consideration of the individual case sinks to nothing, when we find that these poor infants are actually formed into gangs of 40 or 50 each, and taught to pursue robbery, at this tender age, as a systematic occupation. A T T E M P T AT MURDER AND SUICIDE.— Wednesday evening last, one of the most melancholy events occurred in Norwich that has been known for many years:— A Mr. Wm. Bendy, who had cohabited with a young woman of the name of Elizabeth Garrod, living in the parish of St. Stephen, in consequence of a fit of jealousy ( aggravated by circumstances of a pecuniary nature, in which he charged her with involving him), sent for her to a house in which he had been an occasional visitor; the unfortunate victim obeyed the summons; she sate down in the room, and after a few words had passed, she arose to leave him, when Bendy presented a pistol, and discharged it, the contents entered her left side, under her arm— he immediately discharged another at his own head, but it failed in the effect intended, the wound inflicted being only a laceration of the scalp, and destruction of the right ear.— The young woman now lies with little hopes of re covery, as the ball cannot be extracted..— Bendy has been fully committed to the city gaol to take his trial at the ensuing assizes.— He is an elderly man, of some property, and has a wife and several children residing in London. The pistols were a new pair, which he bought the day before. Twenty- nine years ago Coventry Chapel was robbed of the Communion plate; and although diligent search was made at the time, the robbers could not be discovered; but by a late voluntary confession of a man of the name of Doughty, the parties concerned are likely to meet with the punishment due to their crimes. On the 5th ult. Mr. James Parr, of the Fleece, Astley C'hapel, sent as a present, by the carrier, to his friend in Warrington, a dog and cat ( tied up in a bag) who have been companions more than ten months. On the morning of the 9th December, the dog and his cat. took their departure from Warrington together, and arrived in the evening at their old habitation ( Mr. Parr's) a distance of 15 miles. They were observed jogging through Bulcheth, side by side. At Green I. ane End, the dog gallantly defended his fellow traveller from the attack of another dog they met in the lane. MARRIED]— On the 18th inst. at Wigan, Richard Edensor Heathcote, Esq. eldest son of Sir John Edensor Heathcote, of Longton Hall, Staffordshire, to the Right Hon.

LONDON MARKETS. CORN EXCHANGE, MARK LANE, Monday, Jan. 2.7. Our market exhibited a very scanty supply of most articles this morning, and that chiefly by land samples from Essex and Kent, from whence few vessels were in turn; under this impression, with the additional fear that the state of the weather would also militate against further arrivals, we had an eager demand for Wlu- at, and an advance in the prices of about 2s. per qr. from last Monday ; single samples, as usual, being selected at somewhat more than the currency at large, particularly of White Wheat, and at an early hour; the trade apparently slackened at the close. Oats continue very dull sale; good heavy Corn full Is. per qr. lower than last Monday, and the light and inferior sorts still more, and almost unsaleable; but we think prices are now at the lowest. Peas and Beans were no higher, and Barley scarcely exceeded 29s. or at most SOs. per qr. for the best. Red Clover Seed, for the finest of the foreign, and for superfine new seed, of our own growth, is now eagerly sought for, and worth more money; but the middling and inferior qualities do not equally share in this alteration.

T I I E C O N G R E S S . IT does at length seem to be the fact, that the reiterated remonstrances of the British and French Legations, at Congress, have had some effect 011 two principal powers, which for a long time inflexibly persevered in a system of aggrandizement dangerous to all Europe. We are now told that the King of Saxony is to be restored, and that in return for the resignation of Lusatia to Prussia, he is to receive a considerable portion of the Duchy of Warsaw, which, under the previous arrangements was to have been assigned to the Emperor Alexander. We ought to distinguish between the peril incurred hy any accession of power to the House of Brandenburgh and to • the dynasty of the Romanows. Frederick William, under all the increase of territory and population that has been contemplated, will scarcely acquire the rank of a Potentate of the first order, whereas Alexander has long possessed that station, and every village he adds to his dominions, tends to augment that preponderance by which the equipoise of the continent is liable to be destroyed. As the project now stands, on the ground of the latest advices, the channel of the Vistula will constitute one of th" e boundaries of his vast empire, and he will thus advance into- western Europe with a phalanx of strength which must be irresistible by every State, France excepted, east of the Atlantic Ocean, We are fatigued and oppressed with the absurd arguments to which we are frequently constrained to listen respecting the Balance of Power, as if King and Queen could be sliced out like a Christmas plumb cake, and the shares could be so nicely adjusted, that none would complain of the deficiency of his allotment. This subject was well understood by statesmen at the commencement of the last century, and if our modern politicians are not as correctly taught, it is not because the lessons which have been supplied by Napoleon arc less instructive than those by Louis Deodatus. Like Charles the Vth, and Philip the lid, both of these aimed at universal monarchy, and each was disappointed by the inadequacy of his means, mighty as they were, to the extravagant pretensions of his ambition. It is the remark of a foreign disputant, that until the time of Luther, the wars in Europe were comparatively few in number, and harmless in their consequences, but that since that period they have been incessant and sanguinary, as if to the principles of reform were to be attributed, not peace and happiness, but discord and misery. Monstrous and offensive as the system of Popery was, fortunately for mankind, in the early state of society, it was not wholly destitute of utility. The bleak and barren mountain that presents its horrific form to the eye o f t h e Norwegian peasant, shelters him from the frigid blast that would arrest the current by which life is supported. A beneficent Providence has directed, that nothing in the moral or natural world should be so wholly ingrossed with the character of evil, that no atom of good inay be extracted from it; tmd had it been otherwise, this fair and beautiful world, with all its rich and magnificent furniture, by the redundancy of unmixed unadulterated mischief, would have exhibited a scene only of waste, desolation, and solitude. To the peculiar institutions of the Romish faith we are indebted for the preservation of the monuments of genius raised by the labour and talent of antiquity, and to the predominant influence of the Papal hierarchy is to be ascribed, among other causes, the tranquillity of the middle ages. A territory independent of all temporal authority, too great to be easily conquered, and too small to afford the resources to vanquish others, was the seat of the Papal Government. By the consent of nations, it became the arbiter between them and was established into a general Court to which the disputes between Princes and people were submitted, and it was, in fact, the practical adoption of the theory which Henry the IVth contemplated, and which the Abbe de St. Pierre has more fully developed, but which he has blended with so much that is visionary and chimerical, as to render it wholly inapplicable to the selfish propensities and blunted sensibilities of man. But Luther appeared, and with the strength of his reasoning, and the torrent of his eloquence, overwhelmed the baseless fabric of Romish construction; and it was then, and not till then, that the Sovereigns of Europe, delivered from religious thraldom, became insulated unconnected powers, and endeavoured to concentre in themselves that domination which an unproductive and wretched swamp, without money, without arms, and without population, situated in a remote and obscure corner of Italy had, by opinion alone, been enabled to acquire. They forgot that the spiritual ruler had no competitor, and that they had a rival in all the temporalities by which they were encompassed; and to this inattention is to be attributed their disappointment. Trom the Treaty of Westphalia in 1648 to that of Paris in 1814, a period comprehending those of Madrid, Nimeguen, Ryswyek, Utrecht, and Aix- Ia- Chapelle, attempts have been unsuccessfully made to establish that balance which the degraded and enfeebled Court of Rome would no longer maintain. At last, after the most dreadful convulsion that has ever affrighted and afflicted the human species, and after a storm which has swept down six or eight millions of victims to its rage, a Congress has been appointed at Vienna, under the mandate and patronage of all the great powers of Europe, in order to re- establish that equilibrium on some new and favourable ground, which the light of truth, with the present advantages of painful and protracted experience, was expected to discover. Whether the selfish interests of the few will prevail over the honest purposes and acknowledged rights of the many, and whether Europe, under the existing i circumstances, is capable of that re- organization that will admit 20 years of peace to succeed 20 years of warfare, are subjects which we shall not disregard when the proceedings at Vienna shall direct our notice to such important considerations. In the mean while, it may be fit to observe, that the real motive wl \ ever} thing has hitherto ended in indecision and inanity, is because each of the parties has made his individual interest the measure or standard of the general purpi Austria has been endeavouring to persuade her neighbours, that the repose of the continent requires that she should possess a supremacy in Italy, that she should preserve equally Gallicia and the Illyrian provinces, and that her weight in Germany should be restored; Sweden has contended, map in hand, that Norway is geographically a portion of her own domains; France would claim the Rhine and the Alps as her natural boundaries; and Britain, say our opponents, believes I*"' herself to be invested by her maritime Gods with the government of the seas, and would render her despotism over the ocean the foundation of every political system that should be continued for the honour, the security and the felicity of the human race. Such is the obvious cause of the inefficacy of all the schemes of Congress, and until some more libe. al maxims of policy be adopted, we can cxpect no friendly and successful termination of its duties; war we have tated to be i; « - possibe, but we may have a transient, gloomy, hollow, heartless peace.

He was about 52 years of age. and unmarried. On Thursday morning last, after a lingering illness, which he bore with the most christian resignation, John Chamherlin, Esq. of Red Hill, in this county, and one of its Magistrates. I- Ie served the office of High Sheriff in theyear of his Majesty's first indisposition. Ilis loss, more especially amongst his neighbouring poor, is greatly felt and acknowledged. On Saturday evening last, suddenly, Mr. Whitworth, of the Lion and Lamb public house, in this town. Fie was standing at the tap board, and was about to drink a can of ale, which he bad just filled, when he dropped down dead on the floor. He has left a wife and young family. On Wednesday morning the 25th inst. Mr. Robert Richardson, farmer, of Wilford, near this town. The celebrated Musical Phenomena, Master and Miss Smiths, on the 18th instant, had the honour of performing, with unbounded applause, at Stowe House, before the Most Noble the Marquis and Marchioness of Buckingham, together with a numerous assemblage of Nobility.— Northampton Mcrcury, January 21. We understand that the Master and Miss Smiths intend to favour the lovers of harmony with a public display of their talents, in this town, on their way to York, in the course of few days, Lieut. R. Jones Colley is appointed Captain in the 45th regiment of foot, hy purchase, vice Evelyn, who retires.— Gaz. On Wednesday last, William Cooke and James Woodward, both of Gunthorpe, were convicted before the Rev. T. Beaumont, of Bridgford Ilill, in the penalty of ten pounds each, for using snares, for the destruction of hares, in the night of Sunday last. Cooke not paying the penalty, was committed to the House of Correction, at Southwell, for three months. A match was decidcd on Tuesday, between a pony cf Mr. Badderley's, and another belonging to Mr. Nix, butcher, both of this place, to run four miles on the Mansfield road, for 4 guineas, which was won by the latter. John Shaw and Benjamiii Jackson, convicted of petty theft, received a public castigation, in this town, on Saturday last, pursuant to their sentence at the late Quarter Sessions. Petitions to Parliament against the renewal of the Property Tax, have become very general. Those now lying at the Guild- Hall, in this town, have already received several thousand signatures. We fervently hope, that the further continuance of the Tax can be dispensed with by Government. The Petitions for an alteration in the Corn Laws do not multiply so fast as those respecting the Property Tax.— The pressure on this subject is not generally felt, but is confined to two particular classes— the land owners and the farmers. The general interest is understood to run counter to theirs; but their case, nevertheless, deserves the most serious attention of Parliament. It is difficult, indeed, to decide upon the proper remedy ; but some measure ought to be adopted to lighten, if not entirely to remove, the pressure on the British corn grower. The First and Second Reports from the Lords Committee appointed to enquire into the state of the Growth, Commerce and Consumption of Grain, and all Laws relating thereto, to whom were referred the several Petitions presented to the House, respecting tbe Corn I, aws, have been printed. The First Report merely suggests the propriety of direct instructions, to examine evidence in support of the Petitions. The Second Report states the arrangement adopted by the Committee, and the four several heads of enquiry into which they divide the subject. It then proceeds to state, " that the Committee endeavoured toascertain whether any ofthe Petitioners were disposed to support their allegations on oath, in which they were not so successful as they wished, arising perhaps from the Petitioners themselves having no defined opinions upon the subject, as far as relates to general policy; a circumstance which the Committee consider the more probable, as, on examination of their Petitions, it is evident that the prayer of them rather expressesa desire for delay, with a view to further investigation, than any precise opinion on the system which it might be most expedient for the Legislature to pursue." Annexed to this Report arc the minutes of the evidence, and accounts of the imports and exports of grain, the whole occupying 300 folio pages. The witnesses before the Lords are nearly the same who were examined before the Commons. On Tuesday last, Mary Davy was committed to the gaol of this town, by John Ashwell, Esq. Mayor, and Wm. Wilson, Gent. Alderman, for trial at the next Assizes, on a charge of stealing from a room, let to her, two pillow cases and a pillow, a blanket, sheet, and copper saucepan, the property of John Dobson. On Monday se'nnight, an inquisition was taken at Piddington, Northamptonshire, before R. Abbey, Gent. one of the coroners for that county, on view o f t h e bodies of Robert Cave, antl Jane his wife, who were supposed to have been wilfully poisoned; when upon an investigation- of upwards of seven hours, it appeared that Robert Cave, who usually worked at Horton, ( about a inile distant,) was accustomed to have some something hot provided for him on his return home in the evening, generally some broth, and a pudding or dumpling. That oil the preceding Wednesday evening he had a suet dumpling prepared for him by his wife, the whole of which he ate, and found no ill effects from it. That on the next day, ( Thursday) she also prepared another suet dumpling for him, taking the ( lour out o f t h e janie bowl, and tho suet from the same place as on Wednesday. In eating it lie complained of its taste, and only ate about half of it. His wife then ate part of the remainder giving some to her eldest daughter, who only took a very small quantity: they were all very soon afterwards taken extremely ill, and Jane Cave died in about five hours; Robert Cave lived only about eight hours, and the daughter is now very ill, but likely to recover. It did not in any way appear how or in what manner the poison was introduced into, or got mixed with the flour or suet, both of which were strongly impregnated with arsenic. No person having been in the house since the making of the dumpling on the Wednesday, except thefamily o f t h e deceased, on whom no suspicion rested. Verdict— Died by poison ( white arsenic,) mixed with flour and suet, lint when, and how the same became mixed, no evidence thereof appeared to the Jurors. The remonstrance to the Board of Trade by the Silk Manufacturers, and others concerned in the silk business, against the East India Company being allowed to sell Bandanna handkerchiefs, for home consumption, has had its due weight;— and the Company have communicated to the Board, " That it is their determination to wave their privilege;" and state their reasons for so doing to be, that the sale of the Company's raw silk would be lessened. This important information was, on Thursday last, communicated by the worthy Members for the county ofChestcr, to the silk manufacturers ami weavers of Macclesfield. On Monday, Mr. S. an attorney, was committed to Newgate, on a warrant from Mr. Justice Le Blanc, charged with a capital offence. An indictment has been found against him at the Middlesex November Sessions, charging him with maliciously shooting at Mr. Sewell, an accountant, of Bond Court, Walbrook, with a gun, with an intent to kill him. Mr. Sewell had called on him on some business, when a dispute arose, and when Mr. Sewell was leaving Mr. S's house, he discharged a musket at hiin, but it fortunately did 110 injury.'

Ye wretched madmen, worst uf fools, Who suffer such intrusion, Your senses are benumbed indeed To yield to such delusion. Is not the Bible in our hands ? Its sacred truths they shine Refulgent on believing hearts, And every pious mind; What need we then of old wives' tales ?

Paris Papers o f t h e 20th ami 21st have been received, and are chiefly filled with details of the discovery and disinterment o f t h e remains of Louis XVI. and his Queen, which took place on the 18th and 19th. The Queen's were found first, under a thick layer of lime. The coffin was for the most part consumed, but within the impression o f t h e coffin upon the layer of lime underneath were found a great number of bones, and the head entire, placed in such a situation as to shew, beyond a doubt, that it had been detached from the trunk. Some fragments of clothes, and two elastic garters in tolerable preservation, were also found. On the next day, below the tomb of the Queen, were found, in the midst of lime and earth, the bones of Louis the 16th, most of which were corroded and ready to crumble to dust; the head was covercd with lime, and was found between the two legs: by previous accounts it had been stated to have been so placed when the body was consigned to the- coffin on the 21st January, 1793, immediately after the ill- fated Monarch's execution. The remains of the illustrious Personages were placed in coffins prepared for them, and conveyed, in solemn funeral pomp, to the ancient burial place of the kings of France, the Abbey of St. Denis. Extract from a private letter, dated Vienna, January 8, " I believe I can say with certainty that the affair of Saxony is decided. She will recover heJ independent existence. Perhaps some few districts will be ceded to Russia, who will receive farther indemnities on the side of Poland and the left bank of the Rhine. It is said that his Saxon Majesty has been invited to the Congress. This is chiefly attributed to a long audience which both Prince de Talleyrand and Lord Castlereagh had obtained of the Emperor Alexander." A Brussels Paper c f t h e 21st contains a letter from Vienna, dated Jan. 10, which states, " that the political horizon grows more gloomy; they talk of war recommencing, and it is affirmed that a general movement is about to take place in fhe Austrian army. In the midst of a State of things so alarming, anil ofthe public reports, which serve still to increase our fears, the following are positive facts, which cannot be called in question :— " On the 3d of this month the KmperJr of Russia had a private conference with our Monarch, which lasted for two hours; it is presumed that objects of the highest importance were discussed. EvCr since this time an extraordinary activity has been observed in the bureau of the War Department, a great number of extraordinary couriers have been successively dispatched. In circles whieli think themselves best informed, it is pretended that the Emperor Alexander had declared himself in a decisive manner respecting Poland and Saxony, and that this declaration in the present state of affairs must lead to a crisis. On the other hand people pretend to have observed that French Nogociators do not shew in the uegociations all the frankness that might be desired. However that be, it is certain that Russia and Prussia are more closely united than ever; that Austria, England, and Bavaria act in concert; and that the policy of France seems to incline to those Powers. In case of a new war, Italy, Poland, and Germany will be the theatre of i t ; it is asserted, that the neutrality of Holland and Belgium will be secured by the influence of England. A report is spread that Prince Mettei nich quits the Administration, to go to Italy ou a highly important mission. It cannot be denied that the Austrian atates in Italy are in a very singular situation; it, would, perhaps,- havebeen desirable, that lite Austriim power bad noj extended itself beyond For the rest the die is- east.

Mr. Walter Scott's new Poem, called " The L O R D of the I S I . E S ," contains the following beautiful lines, exhibiting a striking picture of recent events:— O who, that shared them, ever shall forget The emotions of the spirit- rousing time, When breathless in the mart the couriers met, Early and late, at evening and at prime ; When the loud cannon and the merry chime Haii'd news on news, as field on field was won, When Hope, long doubtful, soar'd at length sublime, And our glad eyes awake as day begun, Watch'd joy's broacl banner rise, to meet the rising sun. O ! these were hours, when thrilling joy repaid A long, long course of darkness, doubts, and fears ! The heart- sick faintness of the hope delay'd, The waste, the woe, the bio hed, and the tears, That track'd with terror twenty rolling years; All was forgot iu that hlythe Jubilee! Her do- vncast eye even pale AfF.'- i n rears, To sigh a thankful prayer, amid thr I. e. That hail'd the Despot's fall, and Peace and Liberty 1 T H E G A L L I C SLAVE SHIP. The slave ship, deep laden, rides o'er the Atlantic, The sons of proud Gaul in their fortune rejoice; Whilst many a Negro, by grief render'd frantic, Calls loudly on death as the doom of his choice. Beneath those white sails, which the winds are impelling, Too swift to the isles where curst slavery reigns, The breast of the maiden with sorrow is swelling— The heart of the lover is bursting its chains. Tor ( mark ye proud Christians !) in sable skin shrouded, Ecats many a heart tliat is genc'. e and kind ; And many a bright eye with sorrow is clouded, Which once beam'd benevolence, spirit, and mind. Oh ! shame on that nation, humanity yielding, And curse on the wretches who, sordid and vain, ( No ray of remorse or compassion e'er feeling) Would barter the blood of their fellows for gain. And ye, mighty Monarchs, whose conquering legions Deliverance for Europe with glory have gain'd, Extend now the olive to those torrid regions, Where, torn from his country, the Negro is chain'd. And thou, happy Britain ! whose firm perseverance Re- seated the BOURBON, defended thine own, Who first in the struggle, yet first in forbearance, When or. ce the Usurper was hurl'd from his throne. But woe to that treaty which tarnish'd thy glory— Which " let slip" the war hounds on Africa's coast; And infamy light on the harden'd and hoary, On whom are thy lessons, Adversity, lost! But thou, 0 A L M I G H T Y ! without whose permission No sparrow can fall, nor yet tyrant oppress, Incline to she pray'r of each Briton's petition, And quickly the wrongs of the Negro redress! " GOOD BYE !" Written on the Occasion if the parting of a Brother and Sister, the latter of whom was going a great distance from home. The heart not a stranger to scenes ca'd'd affecting, A scene I will name, such a heart sure would try; ' 1' is when the bright tears in each eye are collecting Of friends who are parting, and saying " good bye !" A Sister from Brother 1 lately saw parting, Aud tho' I to them am not bound by that tie, file. tear of affection from either eye starting, By sympathy touch'd me, as each said—" good bye !" The conflict I mark'd in each other's breast reigning, Philosophy's efforts, the deeply felt sigh; 1 knew and I felt what their minds were sustaining, When each in faint accents pronounced— good byeI" ROYAL SPEECHES.— The first spt . CH that ever was spoken from the Throne in England, was delivered by our first Henry, called Bran Cleric. He ii;. d cispossessed his elder brother Robert, the Duke of Normandy, of his right of succession to the English Crown ; and being apprehensive of his designs against him, he endeavoured to engage all England in his interest. He therefore convened the Barons and Nobles of the land, to meet him at London in the sixth year of his reign, 1106. Much splendour and expence accrued of course upon this occasion, but he had the art to satisfy his subjects, that he should make the best King, therefore all was well. COFFEE HOUSES.— The first was set up in Oxford, by Jacob, a Jew; it was much frequented by those who loved novelty and disputation. When they became more numerous in London, they were so much visited by needy malcontents, ( for they could in those days procure a cup of coffee, a good slice ofbread and butter, and a dish of scandal for two- pence) that King Charles the Second had them cried down, as being more mischievous to the State, than tea tables to reputation. Apothecaries, after this, sold coffee as a drug, and called it an absorbent. King William and Queen Mary brought coffee houses again into fashion, from the great use they made of eo[ fee themselves. DEVILS TREFKUIIED TO SAINTS.-—( From an old M. S. J— ' A farmer rented a grange haunted by fairies for a great rent, which hee paid every half yeare. One asking him how he durst be so bold to live in lhat place, and whether hee saw none? " Nr. e," saith the farmer; " there bee two saints in heaveta: trouble me more than all the divells in hell, namely, St. Mary and St. Michael, which bee my rent dayes." LIMERICK, Jan. 11.— It is stated that disturbances to an alarming extent qontinue in some parts' of this county. The following list of depredations committed within a short period in the vicinity of Kilmallock has been received. On the liigltt of the 20th ult. several fellows armed with blunderbusses and pistols, burglariously entered the houses of Robert Holmes, Malachv Hanlen, Maurice Heimecsy, Edwin Erwin, and? David Welsh, committed several acts of violence, aud stole various articles of value, and cash to a large amount. On the night of the 23d ult. the house of Mrs. Adams, of Bal- Ivcullane, was broken open by an armed banditti, and one gun and three pistols taken away. On the 29th ult. the house of J& hn Donoghue, of Knocksouna, was broke into by an arm& i partv, who, afiei1 firing several shots, threatened to burn the house, when Donoghue complied with their mandate,.- by delivering to the Captain three guns, a powder horn atld pouch; after which, on the same night, they broke open several iother houses in search of firearms: they then attacked the dwelling bouse of Anthony Dwyer, of Strikesmid, who resolutely made a determined resistance by firing many shots at them; however, by tiieir number, their continued firing and sledging the door, they at last entered, took one gun, some money, plate, and wearing apparel ; they afterwards put him on his knees to shoot him, but were eontented by breaking a blunderbuss on his servant boy's head. On the night of the 31st ult. the houses of John Welsh, of Laurencetown, Maurice O'Dounell, the widow M'Comiell, Maurice Hayes, and Michael Mulquin, were broken into, in search of firearms; the night following, the house of Michael C. rscv was attacked, and threatened to be fired, until he gave then- his musket. Thursday night, a most daring outrage was ctvnmitted iu the village of Ballingary, in this county, by a n u m b e r of fellows breaking into the Bridewell, and releasing three prisoners confined therein : resistance being offered U the Bridewell keeper, the desperadoes fired and wounded lam and his wife severely. An immediate pursuit being set on foot after the perpetrators, the leader, a fellow named Mullowney, was apprehended on the confines of the county ef Cork, a., dwas oil Monday lodged in our jail, by Thomas Odell and William Smyth, Esqrs. On Friday last, when the Cork mail coach for Dublin stopped on Kil worth Mountain to change horses, a gentleman, v lshiug to relieve himself from sitting so long, weut out of the coach, and walked on before it. He had not proceeded more than two hundred yards, when he wasattacked by four men, one of them armed with a blunderbuss, and the other three with pistols, and robbed of 421. 10s. They then tied him, and left him lying across the road, on a declivity, and in the direct course of the coach. Fortunately, his cries attracted the attention of the driver, but rt was witty' difficulty, as the coach was going at a rapid rate, that he could prevent it from running over his passenger. The name of the gentleman has been variously stated, but from an inhabitant of this city, at the time a passenger in the coach, we are led ( o believe that he is a Captain Butler, late of the Armagh Jnilitia, resident not far from Clonmel, ; tnd nearly connected Gy affinity with Lord Caller.— Dublin Paper. CURIOUS CASE.— On opening one of the graves in St. Peter's church, in Chester, last week, the body of a young woman, which had been buried upwards of 80 years, was found quite perfect; her long auburn tresses, and placid countenance, presented a most interesting spectacle. We presume some antiseptic process muiit'have been had recourse to, previous to interment, and which has preserved the body for. so great a length of'tune.— Chester Paper. COURT MARTIAL. TRIAL OF LIEUT.- GEN. SIR JOTIN MURRAY. The Court Martial appointed for the Trial of Sir John Murray, assembled on Monday the 16th of January, at Winchester, at ten o'clock; General Sir Alured Clarke, President. The Members having been sworn, and the charges, which were three in number, read, the Deputy Judge Advocate Mr. Larpent, addressed the Court at great length. After some remarks upon the importance of the duty the Court had to perform, he observed, that the first point to which he had in the onset to draw their attention, was the length of time that had elapsed since those events had taken place, which gave rise to the present charges. He then proceeded to detail the various circumstances which had rendered that delay ' unavoidable. These he represented to be, 1st, The difficulty of assembling a Court in the Peninsula at that time, or of sparing a sufficient number of officers of due rank, from the western armv. J. Murray was, however, furnished with a copy of the charges, and required to send in a list of witnesses to be summoned in his defence. Admiral Hallowell was desirous of calling, in support of the third charge, a number of Spanish witnesses of high rank; but before this could be accomplished, it was necessary to procure the sanction of the Regency. This assent was obtained, but coupled with the condition, that the questions should be put iu writing, and be answered in the same way, but not upon oath. This occasioned some additional delay. Sir John Murray at length acceded to the offer of the Spanish Regency on one or two equitable conditions. Lord Wellington then ordered a Court to be assembled at Tarragona; but on finding the reluctance entertained by General Cole, and others, to try an officer so much senior to themselves in the service, and on their representations of the impropriety of holding a Court Martial on a British officer of such high rank in a foreign garrison town, all parties were ordered to return home, when Sir John Murray might have ihe advantage of an enquiry before a competent tribunal. The Deputy Judge Advocate then proceeded to state the different Charges :— The lst related to the siege of Tarragona, and the delay iu raising it, even after, in Sir John Murray's own former opinion, the success of the enterprise had become hopeless.— The 2d was, that he had disobeyed bis instructions in embarking only a part of his army, and in subsequently disembarking them,— The 3d charged, that the force, when embarked from before Tarragona, was embarked ill a hurried and precipitate manner, so as to sacrifice the object pointed out in Lord Wellington's letter, and to disgrace the military character of the country, by abandoning various trophies to an approaching enemy. The third charge was in the hands of Admiral Hallowell, and was founded on that officer's report to Sir E. Pellew. He ( the Deputy Judge Advocate) should rest his own charges on the statements and assertions of Sir J. Murray himself ; which however, it would be competent to Admiral Hallowell, if it should be necessary to his purpose, to controvert and disprove. Various official documents were then put in and read. The only witness called was Captain Zenthenin, who proved the communications with the Spanish General Copons. The Deputy Advocate General then closed the case on the 1st and 2d charge; and said that be relied oil the evidence of the letters which had been read, and which had been admitted by Sir J. Murray. The Court then permitted Admiral Hallowell to peruse the letters which had been given in evidence, and adjourned. TUESDAY, Second Day.— Admiral Ilallowell being called upon by the Court to substantiate the third charge, began by saying, that he wished two letters to be read, before he entered into the charge. The first was a letter written by him to Sir E. 1' eilew, on the 19th of June; the othei^ was t'rotn Mr. Croker, Secretary of the Admiralty, dated the 13th of November, 1813. He wished those letters to be read, in order to shew that he carne forward as prosecutor, not from any motives of personal maliee against Sir J. Murray, but that he had been called upon by Government to substantiate the statement which be had conceived his bounden duty to make in his letter to Sir E. Pellew. The letters were accordingly read. Admiral Hallowell then went at large into a statement of all the circumstances of the re- embarkation from before Tarragona, as the same appeared to his observation. Having ended this statement, he took the oath as a witness, and was allowed to swear to the truth of every part of the statement which came under his own knowledge. Several naval officers were then examined in support of the third charge; and it being near five o'clock, the Court adjourned. T H I R D DAY.— The witnesses heard this day were, Capt. Inglefield ( in conclusion) Lieut. Cole, R. N. Lieut. Bovver, R. N. and Lieut. Col. Williamson, who commanded the artillery at the siege at Tarragona. The third charge was very strongly supported by tfie evidence of the last witness, and was as follows :— Commanded the detachment of British artillery under Sir John Murray, in Catalonia, in June, 1813. About half past eleven on the night of the 11th of that month, he met a Staff Officer, who informed him that Sir John Murray wished to see him immediately at his quarters. Witness arrived there ' at twelve o'clock. Sir John Murray said he intended to raise the siege, and desired witness to get the guns off. Witness expressed his regret at this circumstance, and that he had not sooner been made acquainted with it, as he had just taken up another gun to re- place one displaced by the enemy's fire. He informed Sir John that it was just twelve, and that it would be day- light in two or three hours ; that before a working partv could be collected, or the guns be half way down the hill, day would break; and that the road by which they must come, was under the fire of the enemy. That from this circumstance, and from the number of tnon required in the working party, it was chimerical to hope, that the guns could pass the garrison without very considerable loss of men— that he thought it is duty to state these particulars to Sir John, that be might know precisely what he wished to be done. Witness said he was not led to suppose, that it was the General's intention to raise the siege in that precipitate manner, without any previous preparation or arrangement. Witness pledged himself to bring downtheguns the following night, and, with the assistance of Admiral Hallowfell, if the weather was favourable, all would be on board the succeeding morning. ITe besides assured the General, that by this arrangement the whole of the stores then landing would be embarked, and nothing left behind.— Sir. John Murray approved of every thing, and said he would wait till the next night. That was all which passed between him and Sir John Murray that night. Immediately on leaving head- quarters he gave orders for removing the army, On the ensuing morning, when the guns were embarking ( he meant those that had been at the depot and other places) about nine o'clock Geueral Donkiu arrived, and ordered the embarkation of the guns to be discontinued, saying that General Clinton's division was on its march, aud would be on the beach in half or three quarters of an hour. The General then informed witness, that it was the orders of Sir John Murray that the guns on the batteries on the Olievo should be spiked and abandoned, as soon as General Clinton's division should have passed them, and desired that witness would take immediate steps. to carry the orders into execution. Witness immediately dispatched officers to the different posts with the necessary instructions; but positively directing them not to spike a gun, unless they should receive further orders from him, or from the General Officer commanding the dep6t, or from the Commander in Chief.— He stated to General Donkin, that this order ill- accorded with the promise made to witness, that everv thing should remain till the next night, when they could be all got olf in a military manner. Recollected Admiral Ilallowell entreating him to suspend this order until he ( the Admiral) could see Sir John Murray, and endeavour to dissuade him from such a measure. On the Admiral's return, he told witness, Sir John Murray denied ever having given any order, to. spike the guns, ami that lie wished him to wait till the night of that day. If the guns had been allowed to remain on the battery, and the troops on shore, there would have been no difficulty whatever in getting oifthe gutis that night, as well as the troops. Had he had three hours notice the previous night, he could havegot all off safe then, but he thought it his duty to mention the loss which would take place if it was clone by day- light. He received the last order to spike the guns and destroy the carriages about one o'clock. The orders had been previously sent to the General Officers commanding at the depot to the same effect, and executed. This was at one o'clock in the day of the 12th. Mortars and other ordnance stores were landed on the 10th of June. There were two ten- inch mortars landed, he was certain. Stores were landed daily to keep up the expenditure. On the night of the 10th the working parties were constantly employed in finishing the batteries. The two mortars above mentioned were taken lip that night. Never met any difficulty or delay from the transports in landing stores, when they were wanted.'— Admiral Ilallowell always anticipated his wishes, and gave him the most prompt and ready assistance. Admiral Hallowell said he should not have put this question, had it not been said that great delay and irregularity had been occasioned by the conduct of the transports. It being now past three o'clock, the Court adjourned till the next morning. The Court throughout this day, as on former ones, was crowded to excess by persons of respectability, male and female. FOURTH DAY.— Yesterday Lieut. Col. Williamson ( in conclusion) Col. Thackery, of the Engineers, and Lieut. General M'Kenzie. were examined for the prosecution. The latter stated in the course of his evidence, that being acquainted with the roads on the east and west side of Tarrag; ona, he did not think the enemy could have prevented us from taking away our guns and stores from thence on the 12th of June. There did not appear to him to be any chance of the enemy's interrupting the embarkation of guns or stores, situated as our naval and military forces were. Did not know of any military force of the enemy appearing to the eastward, or Tarragonh side of lialaguer, before, or even as late as the 16;. b of June. lie never heard of any force appearing there on that hand, except a corps that entered Albillios, against which he was sent. On the night of the 16th he believed he was in the village of Albillios ; he had been sent against this force on the ISih or 14th ; could not speak to precise dates. From Albillios he was ordered to fall back to the place of embarkation. Did not know of any cause whatever which could have warranted the precipitate embarkation of the troops at Tarragona, except the account received by Sir John Murray, that the enemy was at Villa Franca, which was told by Sir John to witness. The division under witness's command embarked as early as two o'clock on the 12th. He did not embark himself till after dark, and at that time there was a considerable portion of provisions not embarked. Witness did, not think that the army, reported to be at Villa Franca, eight thousand men, could have marched from thence to Tarragona, with such an equipment as would have enabled them to oppose the British army, wilh any prospect of success, if opposed on their march. The distance was not beyond the powers of men. If they were not opposed on the road, he thought they could march, but they could not attack with a prospect of success within a day, as any General would be glad to give his men a little rest.— Their success would be extremely doubtful.— He would rather expect brilliant success on the part of the British, the state of our army and arrangements were so complete. The hour of three having arrived, the Court adjourned. F I F TH DAY.— After Lieut. Gen. M'Kenzie's examination had concluded, Col. Lord F". Bentinck was next sworn and examined. He commanded the brigade of cavalry before Tarragona, consisting of about four or six hundred men. About nine or ten in the morning of the 11th, he received the orders of Sir John Murray to march to Altafulla. Sir John arrived at his quarters in the course of the day, and be then asked the General whether he had received any intelligence respecting the enemy ? He answered that he had not. He then asked him whether it was necessary for him to use any extraordinary precautions or vigilance in the course of the night, and was answered that it was not necessary. About two or three o'clock in the . morning of the 12th he received an order to return to the camp before Tarragona. About four the brigade began its march, but he himself staid behind till about seven, to endeavour to obtain information respecting the enemy. He could not, however, learn that they had advanced beyond Villa Franca. lie returned to bead- quarters between eleven or twelve o'clock. He then found that about half of his brigade of cavalry had been embarked, and that orders had been given for spiking the guns. No question was asked him as to the information lie received respecting the enemy. lie heard Sir John Murray say that he had not given orders for spiking the guns. Gen. Donkin afterwards ordered him to go with the remainder of his brigade to Balaguer, and said lhat some infantry should be sent with him. General Donkin also told him that it was probable that he would be attacked on his march to Balaguer, and that the army would be attacked on the beach about five o'clock in the evening. He marched to Balaguer, but no infantry accompanied him, nor did he see any following him. When he was at Altafulla, he did not know were General Copons was ; but about the time Sir John Murray left the town, about 100 Spanish cavalry entered, that he conceived to be an escort either accompanying that General, or some other Spanish General of high rank. The examination of this witness being closed, Admiral Hallowell proposed to call Capt. Inglefield again to put a few questions to him. The Judge Advocate informed him, that as be had already examined him, he must state to the Court what questions he now wished to ask him, as it was for the Court to say whether he should be again examined. Admiral Hallowell then stated his questions, but as it wanted but a few minutes of three, the Court adjourned till to- morrow. SIXTH DAY.— The Advocate- General stated, that the Court had considered whether they should call back Captain Ingleby to be examined again on the additional questions which Admiral Hallowell wished to put to him, and they had determined, under all circumstances, that he should not be again examined. After llius communicating the determination of the Court, he would observe to Admiral Hallowed, that those questions had in fact been answered by some of his other witnesses. Gen. Sir W. Clinton was then sworn and examined. He was the next senior officer to Sir John Murray, but was in the command of a division.— Early on the morning of the 11th of June, he received orders to goto head- quarters, and to have his division in readiness to march. On bis arrival there, he found Sir John Murray, who was just going out. He informed him that lie was going to look for a position on the banks of the Guiara, to meet the enemy who were advancing from the side of Barcelona, lie left him in the temporary command of the pass, and told him that if Major Thackery reported the breach practicable in the Puerte Reale, it should be stormed that night. Q. Had you any conversation with Sir J. Murray about eight o'clock on that evening ? A. Having made all arrangements at head- quarters, when 1 was going to my post at Oliva, I met an officer of the Staff, who told me that Sir J. Murray was oi^ his way to headquarters, and that he should probably meet him. I requested the officer to tell Sir John that all arrangements had been made for the attack of Puerte Reale; and that at ten o'clock the signal would be given for the attack, unless orders should be given to the contrary. As I was going to my post, I met Captain Mills, of the 27th, and requested him to go to head- quarters, and inform the Command- 1 er of the Fortes that every thing was prepared for the attack. Captain Mills returned in about half an hour, and brought word that the attack would be made. Having then made every arrangement, and given directions that the signal rockets should be fired precisely at ten, I rode to head- quarters, to report - theidetails of the arrangements made, and to receive any further orders from the Commander of the Forces. On my arrival at head- quarters, Sir J. Murray informed me that the attack must be given up, and that, from the information he had received of the movements of the enemy, the siege of Tarragona must be abandoned. I then informed him, that as it was half- past nine, I feared that the signal for attack would be made, unless orders had been sent to the contrary. He acquainted me that he had already countermanded the attack. I then informed him, that if the signal was made, the false attack to be made by my division and the Spaniards would still take place. He observed that all the officers attached to him were absent on other duty. I then informed him that Capt. Castemar, who attended me, was ready to take his orders. That officer was then ordered to go with all speed to Oliva, to prevent the signal being given, and he arrived just in time to prevent the firing of the rockets. Q. Did you receive any information on the morning of the 1 2iii, of the enemy's approaching, and in what direction ?— A. By the first- order I received on the 12th, I was led to imagine that Sir J. Murray expected the enemy on the Guiara. I proceeded with my division to head- quarters, by the shortest road I could take, out of the fire of the town. I then hardly knew on what side I was not to apprehend an attack. Q. Previous to that order, had you not received an order to go with six battalions in support of Geueral Copons?— A. I had. It was to cover a movement about to be made by General Copons, who was then at Altafulla. Q. Did you receive orders to spike the guns, and when?— A. I did receive orders to that effect. I think it was about ten o'clock. I was also directed to march with my division to thebeach. Q.. Was that order countermanded before there was time to carry it into execution ?— A. It was countermanded, but not before there had been time to carry it into execution. Q, Was it countermanded before it was actually carried into execution?— A. Certainly it was; except with respect to the guns on the six- gun battery, which were spiked in error. Q. Had the guns been allowed to remain, would there have been any difficulty in bringing them down to the beach for embarkation, after it was dark?— A. 1 apprehend that certainly there would not. I was at the mortar battery about 12 o'clock, when the officer commanding there was actively employed in preparing to evacuate it. I told hi til that 1 would furnish him with a working party of SO men from my division to assist him. He informed me, that with that assistance, he would answer for it, that not one piece of ordnance on the battery should be lost, but that they should be ail safe for embarkation by ten o'clock that night. Q. IIow long did you remain at your post at Oliva? A. Till near five ill the afternoon of the 12th. Q, Do you know of any enemy's force appearing between ftilaguer and Tarragons, before the J6th of June, or even as late as that day?— A. I think it was the I4' tli or 15th; but as I have not my notes in Court, which I took at that lime, I cannot speak positively as to dates. The witness then left the Court, and returned with his notes. After looking at them, he said that it was not till the 15-' h of June that the enemy shewed themselves in that direction. As he was stationed with his troops to defend the pass of the Col de Balaguer, he saw nothing Of the enemy, but understood that they had turned the hill by a mountain road. Q. Do you know of any cause which obliged us to raise the siege of Tarragona in the precipitate manner we did, leaving our guns, stores, and provisions behind us?— A. Totally uninformed as I was of the instructions that the Commander of the forces might have for his guidance, or what might be the information which he might have received with respect to the situation or movements of . the enemy, I can only say, that I knew of no reason that could render necessary the endless changes of measures which was observed on that ill- fated day. I could hardly imagine any situation of things which could have rendered necessary such proceedings as those of the 12; b of June ; and circumstanced as the British, force in the plain of Tarragona appeared to me to be— in the possession on the one side of Fort St. Felippe, ant! the Col de Balaguer; and on the other side, having at least 6000 troops under the command of such officers as Colonels Manse! and Leader, in the direction of Barcelona, I am clearly of opinion that the precipitate retreat from before Tauragpiia on the 12th of June, was not necessary or warranted; and that the measure, of abandoning the siege of Tarragona in such a way, bad all the appearance of a disgraceful flight. The witness underwent a short cross- examination by Sir. T. Murray, when the Court enquired whether there were any further evidence or papers to be produced? Admiral Hallowell, in reply, stated, that he had closed the prosecution ot bis case. Although he had not had an opportunity of bringing forward his Spanish witnesses, nor been allowed to strengthen his evidence by any proof of transactions subsequent to the 12th, he had to thank the Court for the handsome manner in which bis applications for that purpose had been refused. Sir John Murray then observed, that as there had been two distinct openings, and two separate prosecutors had appeared against him, he hoped . that'he might be indulged in making the several statements, aijd supporting each separately, by the evidence, on his defence. The Deputv Judge Advocate saw no objection to this, reserving to himself his own individual right to reply on the two first charges, although lie did not at present see that it Would beat all necessary, as the letters of Sir John Murray and the instructions of the Duke of Wellington were before the Court. The President said, it certainly rested with Sir John Murray to urge his defence in such a manner as he should deem most advantageous to himself; and it was now for him to say what time he would require for its preparation. Sir John Murray replied, that the Court must be aware that be was not disposed to take up their time unnecessarily, or for a longer period than should be indispensably necessary for his defence. The great variety of matter, however, which had been introduced, and the evidence, almost entirely false ( he meant with rcspect to the information on which it was founded), that had been adduced, compelled him to solicit from the Court the indulgence of five days, as be conceived that he could not be fully prepared in a shorter space of time. The President said, that it was for the prisoner to name what period he should deem absolutely necessary, and if that should appear unreasonable, tlie Court must be cleared to take the question into consideration. The Court was accordingly cleared, but in a short time assented to the request of Sir J. Murray, and adjourned till Friday morning the 27th inst. At a numerous meeting of land owners and occupiers, of land in Norfolk, held at Norwich last week, it was unanimously agreed, that petitions should be presented to both Houses of Parliament, requesting them to take the present corn laws into their early consideration. PROPERTY TAX.— Petitions against the Property Tax have become general throughout the kingdom. A meeting for the above purpose, was held at Worcester on Tuesdav last, A county meeting was also announced to take place ill that city on the 25th. The petitioning has not only reached the most distant parts of ihe kingdom, but meetings have been held in many of those cities which have hitherto opposed that mode of address.— The counties of . Somerset, Hants, Carmarthen. : nd Norfolk; the cities ot York, Norwich, Carlisle, Bristol, Wells, Rochester, and Winchester; the » nvns of Liverpool, Hull, Plymouth, Taunton, Stafford, Manchester, Birmingham, and Bury St. Edmnnds, have also met, and agreed to petition Parliament against its renewal. Notice of meetings have, likewise been given for the county of Gloucester on the 2Sth and Suffolk on the 30th. A Catholic meeting was held at the house of Lord Fingal, in Dublin, on the 17th inst. to consider whether the petition should be for qualified or unqualified emancipation, and, on a division, the petition forunqualilied was carried . by a majority in proportion of three to one. On Sunday night the 15th inst. some villains entered the toll- bar house at Wardlowe Myars, near Tideswcll, in Derbyshire, kept by a poor old widow woman of the name of Oliver, about 70 years of age, whom the inhuman wretches strangled by tying a handkerchief round her neck, t-) make it appear that she had perpetrated the horrid deed herself; but marks of violence being discovered on different parts of her body, supposed to have been inflicted by her resisting the monsters, the coroner's verdict was wilful murder against some person or persons unknown. Three men have been apprehended on suspicion of committing the murder. r Audacious Burglary.— On Saturday week, between the hours of three and four o'clock in the morning, four men with their faces disguised, and armed with a pistol, a bayonet, and an axe, broke into the dwelling house of Mr. Hulme, of Ilempshaw Lane, near Stockport, dragged him from his bed, and swore they would murder him if he did not deliver up all the, cash in his possession.— One man held him fast behind so that he could not turn round to examine their faces, arid forced him to the place where the booty was deposited. After robbing Mr. H. of a brace of silver mounted pistols, gold watch, and cash and notes to the value of 901, one of the villains said, " damn you, give me your silver watch, with the gold chain to it !"•— This was also given up; and after they had forced Mr. Hu'tme to give them a bottle of rum, they decamped with their booty. On Monday week, two men, named Roberts and Davies, were drinking together at a public house at Ironbridge, Shropshire; after sitting for a considerable time, Davies pretended he had a long way to go home, and Roberts, who lived in the neighbourhood, proposed that he should accompany him to his house that night. On their way thither, Davies demanded his money, and when Roberts told him he had none, the former knocked him down with some instrument, which stunned him and cut his skull dreadfully. Whilst the villain was intent upon plunder, a man came up, who, oil enquiring what was the matter, was answered by Davies, that the old man bad fallen down and hurt himself, and requested assistance to convey him to his home. After the unfortunate man had been carried home, Davies asked the stranger to procure medical assistance, and whilst the man was away, Davies broke open a chest, and took thereout clothes and other property. He had not gone far with his spoil, however, before be met the stranger coming back, who was told by the felon that the old man was better, and that he had bargained with him for the articles under his arm. He then decamped. The officers are in pursuit of him. Near 40 sail of vessels were lost in the late gales in the Irish Sea, and of ten of them, we lament to add, the crews met a watery grave. On Thursday last, a gentleman coming from Sunderland to Newcastle- on- Tvne, near Scotch House, heard the Cuckoo / Fearing he might be mistaken, the circumstance being so remarkable, he stopped to enquire of a man who was driving his cart, whether he had not a cuckoo clock carrying; oil his answering in the negative, the gentleman looked about and saw the bird in the plantation at Scotch House, and heard it for nearly fifteen minutes. Ten pieces of silver coin, of the reign of Elizabeth and Charles the lst, were found a few days ago, by the sexton of Ilavant, near Portsmouth, while digging a grave in thechur. chyard ; those of Elizabeth are in the best preservation ; they are about the size of a sixpenny- piece, but thinner. DEATH OF A DWARF.— Died on Saturday week, Ann Knight, daughter of Mr. Knight, of Taunton, near Ashton- under- Line, aged eight years and eight months.— She weighed only nine pounds, and in length was only thirty inches. CAMBRIDGE, Jan. 20.— The following are the subjects for Sir Wm. Browne's gold medals for ihe present year:— For the Greek Ode, In Augustissimum Gallice Regent solio arito redditnm.— For the Latin Ode, Vivas ducenl de marmore vullu....— For the Epigrams, Quicqutd dtcam, aid c'rit a at non. Am VOLCANO,— The Europeans who have not been seasoned to the climate, are accustomed to leave Carthagena ( in South America) during the heat of summer, and to spend that season at Turbaco, an Indian village, delightfully situated on the top of a hill. Mr. de Humboldt, and his fellow traveller, Mr. Coupland, spent the month of April, 1801, in this village. During their herbalizatiohs, they were informed by the Indian guides that there existed a country not far off, in the midst of a forest of palms, to. which the name of volcanitos ( Hide volcanoes) was given ; that its surface had been formerly covered with fire ; that a priest had extinguished the combustible with holy water; and that now is emitted nothing but water. On going. to the spot, our travellers found in the middle of a vast plain, 18 or 20 small cones, about 24 feet in height. These cones are formed of a blackish grey clay, and l-. ave an openi ng at their summit filled with water. Oil approaching the small crater, a holloW- but very distinct sound is heard at intervals, 15. or 18 seconds previous to the disengagement of a great quantity of air. The force with which this air rises above the surface of the water may iead us to suppose that it undergoes a great pressure in the bowels of the earth. Five explosions generally take place ill two minutes, and this phenomenon is often attended with a muddy ejection. According to. the Indians,, the. forms of the cones undergo a visible change in a great number Cf years ; but the ascending force of the gas, and the frequency of the explosions, appear to vary according to the seasons. Mr. de Humboldt examined the gas, and found that it was azote, mixed, with 1060 of its bulk of Oxygen gas. Here- is a phenomenon well worthy the attention both of geologists and chemists. Whence comes the azotic gas? How is it produced? Does'there exist in this place ail immense magazine of ammonium, which by means of water is converted into azote ? We are far indeed from being able to philosophize, in the present state of our knowledge, respecting the changes that take place under the surface of the earth.— Thomson's Aiinkls.
