J yiENNA, Noy. 28- From all parts of the monarchy we haveaccounts of the return of our brave troops to their own coun- try. They are every where received with the ho- nours due to their merit. The accounts from Venice, which reacli to the 2Qth, continue to give an account of the magnifi- cent fetes in that city, in honour of their Imperial Majesties. The Little Council of the Canton of Zurich has published a very benevolent regulation, oii occasion of the abuse of the practice of employing; young children in the manufactories and spinnjiig ma- chines; by this regulation no children are th be so employed till they have passed the jjth year of their age ; tliey are to continue' to visit the schools regu- larly, and cannot in any ease be kept to work more than 14 hours in a day; with respect to their wages, they are placed under their parents; or, in case these are dead,- or of bad character, under their guardians, or the administration of the parish. — The proprietors and inspectors of suijh establish- ments have certain duties prescribed to them for guarding the morals of the children, and the Pa- rochial Magistrates are authorised to see that they are fulfilled ; " because," says the regulation, " it is the duty of every paternal Government to pro- vide that the ignorance, carelessness, or self- interest of the parents, may not place young children in a situation which fnay endanger their bodily strength and health, and their morals, deprive them of that degree of cultivation of the mind and heart necessary to every member of civil society, and of the Christian Church, and prevent their acquiring the ability of gaining an honest livelihood when they are grown up, aiid of fulfilling in a proper manner their do- mestic and social duties."-^ Vienna Court Gazette, Nov. 1S. J ' _ FRENCH PAPERS. PARIS, DEC. 8. We have stated, that in the sitting of the Depu- ties on the 1st December, a proposal for reviving the punishment oT the gallows was brought forward, This is erroneous ; it was spoken of only in the Committee ; but ho mention was made of it in the public sitting. It is probable that the Chamber will not direct its attention to such details, which would be beneath its dignity.—( Gazette de France.) The Moniteur says, that it in' authorised to con- tradict the report generally circulated of the de- parture of M. Lebreton for Brazil to form vatieus establishments there. It adds, that no person has received any commission either for this purpose or any others of the like nature. For a few days past there- hag been a consider- able rise in the public funds; it is attributed partly to the acquisition of annuities by foreign capitalists, but chiefly to the firmness and prudence of the Government. ' Madame de St. Leu has set out for Constance, accompanied by- one of her sous. The Court, of Assizes will to- morrow ( the 9th) try a person on a charge bf seditious cries. This trial will be curious, on account pf the character of the accused. This man, named Thomas, is a tur- ner, and though he has the mania of spouting in Latin, and in verse too, it may be occasionally per- ceived that lie has not forgotten his original oqCtw patidn. To- day ( the 8th)' the Court of Assizes was en- gaged with the trial of . lean Bruins Benoit, a cui- rassier, and JlU- nond Morel, a soldier of the line, for seditious cries. These two men, accused of having shouted " Vive rEmperenr .'" and sung sbtfgs against the Government, had been [ ireyi. otisly brought before. a Council of War, which declared itself incompetent. They assert that they " were taken prisoners at Mont St. Jean, aud were intoxi-- ciited at the time they sung the song in. question. The Brigadier of die Royal Guard deposed to their state of intoxication, . M. Bexon, Counsel for the accused, found means to reconcile the interests of his clients with' his known attachment to the King. • " The Jury declared the accused guilty of having invoked the name of the Csttr^ er, aud endeavoured, by scurrilous language, to diminish the resect, clue to the Government of the King! but not guilty of having attempted, to destroy or ovtifhrbw the Go- vernment. The Court, in consequence, sentenced them, agreeably to Articles 5 and 10 of the Law of the 9th November, 1815, to imprisonment for six months, a fine of 50 francs, the stoppage of their pension for a year, and to give surety to the amount ol 100 francs to remain under the superintendence of lhe high police for que year. The magnificent picture of Prud'hon, represent- ing'divine justice preceding, human justice, and pursuing the criminal with her torch, has been re- moved from its frame which was placed;- over the seat of the President, in the Court of Criminal Jus- tice. This picture is now in one of the halla of the prefecture of the, Seine, and a Christ will, be put up in its place. It has been - thought more suitable to substitute for this subject, the truth of which, is but too striking, a consolatory image, which, instend of overwhelming; the criminal w. itli j terror, shews him the pardon which. awaits him.- 1 At seven o'clock in the morning of the execution of Marshal Nev, the horse gendarmerie and the national guard, horse and foot, were posted in all the avenues of the Luxembourg. At eight a veteran Soldier went to the Place St. Michel, to call a hack uey- co'aVh. . At Time the Marshal was in- formed that every . thing was ready : he changed his on, a blue feck; with a black. waistcoat, breeches and stockings. The Cure of St. Sulpice and the Marshal were at the back of the coach, and two officers of gendarmerie occupied the front seat. Numerous detachments of royal grenadiers, gendarmes, and veterans, accompanied and followed the carriage, which crossed the garden of the palace and pursued the new aventie, called the avenue of the Observatory. By the \ yay the Marshal delivered his gold snuff- bo? tq ' M. de Pierre, requesting him to ' give if, with two letters which he had written during the night, to his wife. He then took froip his pocket spine pieces of gold, Which he also gave to the Cure, saying—" Here is something for the poor." ' Qn reaching the gate, the coach turned a little to tlie left, aud stopped about forty paces from the gate, and thirty front the wall, at the foot of which the execution was to take place. A picquet of ve- terans, of sixteen men, had been oh the spot ever since five o'clock in the motning. At the moment when the coach stopped, the party ? ormttt in order of battle. One of the officers of gendarmerie alight- ed first, and was followed by the Marshal, who ap- parently inquired of him if that was the place of execution. He then walked with a firm step to the distance of eight paces froln the wall, and turn- ing briskly towards the soldiers, s& id, '' Comrades, fire at me, aud take good aim." As he uttered these words, lie took off his hat with his left hand, and placed his right upon his breast. The officer of the party gave the signal with his sword, and the Marshal dropped down dead : several balls entered his head. The body was taken up and put upon a bier, { t was exposed for a quarter of an hour to the view of tlie witnesses of this execution and the public ; af- ter which it was covered with a cloth, and carried by veterans to the Hospital of La Maternite, with- out doubt to be delivered to his family. It is impossible to do justice to the zeal mani- fested by " the national guardj' charged with the'po- lice external and internal, of the Palace of the Lux- embourg, during the trial of Marshal Ney.' As exact discipline was observed during those days of bustle by this city militia, as it could have been by the best trained troops of " the liu'e. No person was admitted at the entrance of the palace, whatever might be his rank and qqality, without a particular card, according to the title of each individual. This order was so strictly obeyed, that on Wed- nesday one of his Majesty's Ministers was stopped by the sentinel, at the gate of the palace. The Minister mentioned his name, but to no purpose, " My order," replied the sentinel, " is not to ad- mit any" person whatever." Meanwhile the Com- manding Officer of the post came up, and recog- nizing the Minister, began to apologize for the in- terruption. ™ | have to congratulate yop, Sir," replied his Excellency, with good humour, " be- cause the national guard knows so well hopr to obey orders. I was before acquainted with ' the sincerity of its zeal, but it was. not - till I was stop- ped by it that ,1 was able to appreciate its spirit," .... I.' T PARIS, DEC. <>, We are assured that on the day of Marshal Nev's execution, Madame Ney, Still ignorant of its having taken place, went to the Thuilleries at ten in the morning to implore the Kiiig'&. clemeucy, and. that the Duke of Duras, to whom she ad- dressed herself in order to be introduced, was . obliged'to inform her that the Marshal no longer existed- .-, X- JI>- • When the Chamber of Peers deliberated on tlie Decree, condemning Marshal Ney, there were five nominal calls of the Peers. The first call decided, by a majority of 113 to 47, the question relative - to the reception given by the Marshal to the Usur- per's emissaries in the night between the 13th and 14ih of March. The second decided unanimously, with the exception of one Peer, who did not vote, the question relative to the triple fact of having, by the proclamation of the 14th, excited his army to rebellion and desertion; of having ordered his troops. to join the Usurper; and of having, himself at their head, cffe< ted that junction. The nature ot> the crime resulting from these acts was the ob- ject of the 3d call, and it was in the same manner almost unanimously decided to be high treason, and an attack on the safety of the State, Finally, two calls took phtce on the application of the punishment. The result of the last, in which several voters availed themselves of the power in cliniug to the mildest opinion, was a majority of 139 the punishment of death, to be applied ac. cording to military forms. , The number of voters on each call were. 1 C.

( EXTRACT OF A PRIVATE I. ETTER.) We learn from letters from Paris, that Prince Metternigh has invited, the Spanish Ambassador, the Duke de'San Carlos, to proceed to Italy to the Emperor of Austria. It is said that this Ambas- sador is charged to prptest solemnly, in the name of j& gritt Louisa, infanta of Spain, against the pos- session of Parma and Placentia by the ArchdncJ. e. s'i Maria Louisa of Austria, and against the removal of the pictures of Parma from the Museum at Paris by the Austrian Commissioners. On the other haiid, a projected marriage between the Archduchess Leopotdine, the Emperor's se- cond daughter, and tiie King of Spain, is the topic of general conversation. In my last letter I informed YOU of the apprehen- sion of prase!. For some, weeks past the police has been on the look out for this celebrated robber, without his having any suspicion of the circum- stance. It had found means to introduce some of its agents into his baud, and to direct movements of the latter suitably to its plants; Grasel was enamoured of a girl who had been taken and im- prisoned, but permitted, though in a manner wholly qnkr. own to her, to escape. It was in- tended, by means - of this girl, and a female companion who had been placed with her during her imprisonment, to antice Grasel into a house, where all necessary steps hud Wen taken secure him, A confident of the Magistrates, but suppose^ by Grasel to be attached to- his interest, entered the house with bur., and took all the Re- quisite precautions to prevent his escape. It is said that the Mayor of the town of Dro'ev- doi'f principally contributed to the success of the measures, for apprehending \ ii. is chi^ f of banditti, who has been long known, hut for the last four months has carried on . his depredations with the greatest audacity. He was taken iti the vicinity of Horn, carried on the 2Qth to Sfockerau, and brought about twelve o'clock on the 81st to this capital. ( Such was the eagerness of the people to see him, that thousands went to the other side of the Danube to meet him, and that in the evening the streets were crowded, because it was reported that he was to be transferred in the night from the hotel of the Police to'that of the Tribunal of J ustice, NOV. 23.

The execution took | i+ ace with great secresy, and measures were even takers to divert the attention of the public ' from the time and trie spot at which it was to take place. It was rumoured in the morning that lift: execution was to- take place in the evening, at half- past five o'clock, ia the Plains de Grenelle. • Tt was here, at. that hour, that Labedoyere was executed. The streets; leading to the Plaine de Grenelle, aud the Pluine itself, were p. itrp'ed by mounted geusd'artiies. An immense multitude assembled there. In the mean time the execution had actually taken place, near the garden of the Chamber'of Peers. The gales had been closed and' guarded during the trial; no particular notice was therefore taken of the strict- ness with which it " was guarded on the morning of Thursday, About half- past nine the drums were suddenly heard beating; this was for ilievelraite of the national guard; Ney had been shot, and the body removed, a quarter of an hour before ; he was conveyed privately through the garden to the back gate, where lie ivas carried into the Boulevard. The spot is extremely solitary; he was escorted to it by a few cavalry, when tile carriage stopped, and a file of troops of the line appeared drawn up opposite to the garden ; he stepped put with great firmness, seemed somewhat surprised— exclaim- ed, " What, liene •' but it is no matter." A per- son advanced to' place a bandage over his- eyes ; he made a sign with his hand to prevent " it; he began to spejik, . ttud even said a few words, the substance of which was what he had said in the Chamber of Peers, that his conscience reproach- ed him with no crime, that he had been refused the means of defence, that he was unjustly con- demned, in direct violation of the faith of Treaties, ^ * and that he appealed tp France and to posterit ™ 1' This was permitted by a Lieutenant of gendar- merie, who stood immediately ne. xt to the Marshal; but when the Commandant observed it, he gaie or- ders to the soldiers to be ready to do their duty. Ney requested to be allowed to give the order; | ie spoke the following words:— " Soldiers ! you have obeyed me during fifteen years, obey me for this the last time— take your aim here—( laying'his. hand upon his heart)—- right to the heart— Visfz Jusle- lu- droit au cccur-— Vive la France!'" After uttering these words he dropped down lifeless ; the body remained oil the spot for a verv few minutes, after which it was Carried to a guard- room, where it remained for two hours; it has been since given to his family; he- hits four children ; his fortune is not HS considerable as might be expected from his rank, and by no means equal to that of most of tile French Generals. The law of amnesty proposed by the DHC tic liiclrelieu lias greatly, calmed the public anxiety ; it is fu. unded on the two Ordinances issued by the King in July last. , JSTo individuals, excepting those comprised in. that Ordinance, are to be made accountable for their t- mduct. j. TJiis pub- lic declaration cauje most , opportunely to- calm the anxiety which prevailed in Paris, when it became known that the Marshal had » been executed. When it was found that lie had- suffered, it was pretended streams of blood would flow through the Streets of Paris— ti rat the sanguinary scenes iff the Resolution would be renewed : the speech of the Minister was received with enthusiasm.

The Aurora arrived in the River yesterday, from Bengal,: which she left on, the l^ th. July. This shijp is the bearer of the latest advices from India. It was . apprehended, from the appearance of things, '. hat the. Company would have been involved in new disputes with some pf the Rajahs j but the distin- guished skill, and bravery, recently displayed against fhe. Napatilese by the British troops, have deterred others from entering , into, new contests with them. The Made, as army had. crone into ca^ toments, and the, Napaul army were about to, do the stime. Much ( issatisfacti. on had been expressed in India tit the p » w arrangements. of the Post- office in England, in CSiisequejice of the great in'ijoii. yenienie and delay that, had beWl experienced nt Calcutta, in receiving tlwir comtntiiiications from Europe.

The merchants of Calcutta feeling themselves aggrieved on this subject, have addressed a Petitism to Parliament for redress. A misunder- standing still subsists between the British and the Chinese Goverutneiit, which, In a great degree, is attributed to the conduct ofthe agent of the India Company ill China.

EXTENSIVE KOHBERY, On Monday morning, when the gentlemen en- gaged in the Newbury B: » ik entered it to proceed to business, they discovered that the whole of the property hud been stoleu, amounting, it is supposed,- to hear 20,000/.; at least 1! i> known that ou Sa- turday evening there were Bank of Engjand notes, their own notes, other country bank notes, bills,",& c. to the am ui. it of between 10' and 17,000/ , and cash iu gold and silver to the amount of between 3 and 400/. ; and besides this immense wealth, - all the books and documents relative to it were also stolen and Carried awav at the same time, so that it i* impossible to describe the valuable property sto- len. The robbery had been effected by means oT false keys. Nothing but dismay U- JS in the coun- tenance of every one concerned in the Bank ; it was in v- iin to keep it open, as there were no notes or cash to pay with, and the cruelty of taking the books away rendered it impossible to transact any busitkess. An express was sent off to the Public Office, Bow* i street, where every assistance was rendered to thfe distressed parties. The officers have discovered that Bank notes, pnrt of the stolen property, to the amount of 800/. were paid to a respectable man a. t Abingdon ou Monday morning, for the purchase of some property.

The Prosecutor keeps a lodging- house in Glou- cester- court, Whitechapel. A pe'rsdu of the name of Hubert Carr occupied an apartment in it. He went out about half- past eleven ou the morning 1 mentioned, in. the indictment, and, on his return ut ; nine- in the evening, he discovered that the bed - and bed clothes were taken awav. \ Three. persons, who were in the house at the time the robbery was committed, deposed, that, iu con sequence of the noise made by the Prisoners in- going down stairs, an alarm wns- created, and they " were pursued. Topluun was taken w. itli the bed on his back, and Lynch was subsequently secured. The Prisoners, in their defence, said thev were in company with Carr all day; and, having spent their money in a public- house," Carr desired them to go to his lodgings and take the l> ed, for the pur- pose of raising a triile on' it. This they did. They denied having broken into the room— they found the door unlatched. Carr positively contradicted this'statement. He was acquainted with Lynch,, hut had not been in his company on the day when the robbeiy was com- mitted. The Jury found the prisoners guilty of stealing to the amount of 39 ® . and aojuiited them of the burglary. Mary IValker was indicted for privately steal- ing, in the dwelling- house of Thomas - Webster, in the parish of. Si. James, Clerkenweil, ou the 2pth of November, a time- piece, value 40s. and a sil ver tea- spoon, value 2s.

This was an action to recover the sum of 108/. demurrage, from the Defendants, under the follow- ! iug tircunistances : — The Plaintiff1 is the owner of a ship called the 1 IViUiam, which, in the early part of the present i jear, was iu Portugal, and was declared open for I general freight. Among others who put freight on ! board were the present Defendants, why shipped I sixty hogsheads of French wine and eighteen cases of the s- ime. The ship arrived safely iu the port of London 011 the 2!> lh of June, aud was reported to the Custom- House on the 3d of July. From this day the Defendants might have had received their wines from ou board, but although frequently re- quested so to do, ihev did not, to the great in- convenience of the owners, who were not alone delayed beyond the usual time in the delivery . of their cargo, but were put to considerable addi- tional trouble in removing from time to time the Defendants' wines, to get at the cargo beneath. The joss which the Plaintiff alleged he hud incur- red by this delay, was 61. per day for I 8 days. A protest was delivered to the Defendants: 011 the 19th of July, for their neglect iu not receiving the wines, intimating that they would be answerable for all cysts and charges which might thereafter be incurred by their negligence. Mr. PARK, on the part of the Defendants, sub- mitted, that, by the Excise Laws of this country, it become necessary, where French wines had been carried to another foreign port, aud there shipped 011 board a British vessel, before those goods could 1/ e lauded here, an" order for their delivery must be , obtained from the Treasury. - In procuring this I order the delav complained of was occasioned. In , the present instance he apprehended, as the . Plain tiff was aware of this circumstance as wall as the Defendants, in taking the goods 011 board, he was as much bound to . Obtain this Treasury order as the Defendants. Lord ' ELLENBOBOUGH held, that as the delay liad originated iu the owners of the freight,, they must be answerable for all consequences. The shipping of the goods vvas the act of the Defend- t ants, and all inconvemeneies resulting from that act j must full upon themselves, A Verdict was found for tb' » - Plaintiff— Damages, s 108/.— Costs, 40s.

The Plaintiff and Defendant are members of an e Association called " The British Insurance Asso- i ciation," the object of which Association is to in- ' I sure each other's vessels, and thereby prevent those 8 delays which so often occur in recovering . losses ' when insurances are otherwise effected. The vessel r in question was insured under this Association, and on a voyage front tlie West Indies to this country was captured by a French privateer, and was to- J tally lost to the Plaintiff.

WOOD, SKINNER, « « « * MAY, in the matter of the ! ! I. AWFORD CHARITY. Mr, HART stated, this was the petition of the j Rector, Churchwarden, and Overseer, of the parish- j of Lawl'ord, in the county of Essex. A person of the name of Leach, in 17" 25i bequeathed a farm of 95 acres of copyhold land to the parish of Law- ford, for the purpose of maintaining, clothing, and educating ten poor children, and for the. support of two old men, belonging to the parish. A person of the name of Jarnian was appointed a trustee under the will. The farm had been occupied by succeed- ing tenants up to 1797, and the rent had not been increased from the year 1747 to 1810, the time that the Petitioner? entered into office, when they di- rected Jarinau, the trustees representative, to give notice to the tenant to quit, which lie did, but im- mediately granted a lease of it to a parson of the name of Eagle, his son- in- law, for 14 years, at a rent of 62/. per annum, which was much less than it was worth ; 2/. an acre had been offered for it. Mr. LEACH said, to save the time of the Court, he would take a preliminary objection, which must be fatal to the petition. The petitioners, as rela- tors, by the Attorney- General filed an information, praying that the lease might be quashed; that Eagle should pay full rent while iu possession; that lie should pay for the deterioration of the land by his improper system of cultivation ; for liberty to lay before the Master a scheme for the re- letting of the farm; and that the representative of Jai'mau i ( who is dead) should pay all the costs ; and this pe- i tit ion prayed that the information should be dis- missed, as it was not signed by the Attorney- Gene- ral, but by the Solicitor- General. The LORD CHANCELLOR—" The Solicitor Ge- 1 neral cannot sign a petition to dismiss an informa- : tiou of the Attorney- General." Mr. BELL—" The Attorney- General cannotdis- I miss his information, as it is like a bill, without pay ing the costs of all parties, and he claimed them on the part of his Clients." t Mr. WINKFIELD put in a similar claim for his 1 C lients. The LORD CHANCELLOR—" You must bring r the Attorney- General to this bar, here to say whe- 1 titer he wishes his information to be dismissed. Speaking respectfully of these Law Officers, a peti- 1 tion of this kind requires something more than the ; just affixing a name to it, it ought to betaken t into serious consideration, It has been said, that 1 the Attorney- General aud Solicitor- General are as ! man and wife ; so the Solicitor- General, as the wife, thought he could dispose of the iufonnatior of the husband. It is a thing he cannot do. I re- f member iu the case of Sir Fletcher Norton, it wa! j successfully contended that the Solicitor- General e could not act as Attorney- General, although tlw t latter situation was vacant. Let this petition stand f as it is, and serve the Attorney- General with notice to appear." 1 The remainder of the day was occupied in hear- .1 ing exceptions argued, of no interest except to the parties concerned. COURT OF KING'S BENCH, DEC. 12. - Sittings after Term, Guildhall, London. CRI. Yf. CON. PRICKETS C. ADAMS. This was an action of trespass, by which the Plaintiff sought to recover compensation 111 damages for criminal conversation with his wife. This case did not partake of airy of those features of interest which were possessed by those which have recently come before the public. The Plaintiff, it appeared, was n tradesman, and having become em- barrassed, he quitted London, and went to reside at Birmingham, where he remained for some time. During his absence, his wife occupied herself in- dustriously in the business of a straw- hat- maker, by . which . means she obtained her livelihood. Wiiile thus, situated, it was her misfortune to form an' ac- quaintance with the Defendant, who is a Clerk in the Comptroller's Office, and who soon persuaded her tn seek consolation for the absence of her hus- b. md in his arms, and she went to live with him at his residence in Wells- street, Oxford- street. This illicit intercourse, however, was not productive of tli at continued happiness which was anticipated. The Defendant soon grew tired of his new- born love, aud took measures to get rid of its object. These measures were soon productive of the desired pffect, aiid the faithless fair one was left to brood over her misconduct in retirement. Her sister, who is the wife of a respectable tradesman iu Oxford- street, washer only refuge, and she administered to her comfort as far as she could consistently with her own situation. These facts having been communi- cated to the Plaintiff, he took those measures which were necessary to the satisfaction of his own feelings. The witnesses examined in support of the Plain- tiff's case were, his wife's sister, and the servant of the Defendant. The former proved the . happiness which mutually existed between the Plaintiff and his wife, previous to the departure of the former from London ; and the hitter proved ineontestibly the criminal intercourse between the parties, having made the. bed in which they slept, and 011 ail occa- sions placed their night clothes together. On the part of the Defendant there was no denial of the fact ; but in mitigation of damage* it was submitted that the Plaintiff iu leaving his wife without protection, and at large in this great town, A new piece,( irititled, Smiles and Tears : or, ' the < Widow's Stratagem, was last night produced.— 1 he following are the dramatis persona : — ABBOT.

The lively scenes, or rather IK those which thv eulhor intended to be lively, are derived „, from Ihe blustering courtship of Colonel O'Douellan, wli. J n, desperately enamoured of Lady Emily— aud the strata- g-, 111 by which lifer Ladyship effects an union between Sir. Hfni- y Choluileigh aud her friend, the Widow Uelmour, be- 11 1 tween whom and Sir llenry a law- suit had subsisted for many years. She accomplishes the point by inviting Sir Henry, hi who had met her at' « masquerade, hut who is not acquaint- | t ri w ith her person, to visit her nnder the assumed name of Grenvillc. This he accordingly dui: a Airs Belmotir, whouij ' In- had never seen, receive* him as Lady Emily, and effec- tuajly secures his affections. The mistakes occasioned by F bis courtship of the fictitious Lady Emily, form the iugrfc- | j dients of one or two amusing sceiies. ] j The prologue to this play, labours hard to prove, U that those individuals go astray from nature, who, tl in writing a comedy, exclusively confine themselves (' to the creation of mirth and laughter— because, says ti the author, our lives present a Constant series of 11 vicissitudes— some fortunate, some unhappy. This r; is a doctrine in which we cannot agree. If ull the events of a man's life were to be crowded into a 11 drama, the remark would bejnst. But it is the t: business of u writer to select only such circum- stances as upj- ear best suited to the work he would 11 produce, whether it be a tragedy or a comedy, j: The subjects proper for each should be kept apart— 0 they ought not to be commixed together. If the lightness and vivacity of comedy may be weighed ( down by the introduction of tragic incidents— why, acting on the same principle, may not the dignity t of the tragic scene be impaired by the intervention t of com. c occurrences ? We consider such conjuuc- £ turn's as monstrous— and, strongly impressed with t this feeling, we do not hesitate to say, that the piece j produced last night, is not a comedy, though the i play- bills so denominate it. The incident taken t fnuii Mrs. OPIE'S tale of The father, is, in every 1 thing, except the termination, purely tragic.— * Surely, a parent, bereft of his senses by the deser- < tion of his daughter— this moment discoursing of 1 her in all the eloquence of woe— now weeping s o'er her memo y— and now ready to curse her as the < cause of his wretchedness— is not a proper subject 1 for the comic scene. AS well nnght the sorrows of t JLeitr be incorporated with a comedy, as those of f itz- t harding. Sir IllCHAUD STEELE, the admirer and advocate of sentimental Comedy, never attempted i to go so far. He interests us even to tears— he ex- j cites pitv and compassion.— but he never produces terror. The two first acts of the new piece are ex- ceedingly dull ami languid— they abound in narra- tive, and present, vfcry'little action. The incidents, In tile. remaining acts, are more numerous— aud, in the production of these, the chief merit of the au- thor is to be found. The characters lire not drawn with strength— nor can they claim the praise of originality. The language is tolerably good— it is j uot remarkable for want of polish, neither is it dis- tinguished by any peculiar elegance. I u til most ( every instance, the serious dialogue assumes the , character of declamation— and, instead of a con- , uected chain of discourse, we are treated with a va- riety of sermons. Of wit, or repartee, there is scarcely any— and some of the attempts to be jocular, which appeared to us to border 011 indelicacy, may he. , omitted with advantage. For instance, Mrs. Jtj- fiies, a pert waiting maid, is of opinion, that every woman ought to - marry once, that she may become acquainted with the nature of things .'•" Strange to say, this exquisite double entendre wa* received with the loudest plaudits. To the performe/ s the success of the piece is fairly attri- butable. With a less powerful combination of talent, it must hire failed. Mr. YOCVG depicted the madness of Fitz- tietrdinii in the most atfer. tiojj style. Me, JoM'. s performed the character » f ( f DukeWtH with great force and animation. Mrs. C. faki: appeared; for the first time these three years, as Lady F. miiu. She was received in the most Battering manner, and played extremely well. Miss FO. OTE supported the part or Cicely, I'itihnrding with much feeling. Messrs. C. KRMBt. B aud FAWCF. TT did ample justice to . Sir llenry Cholmteigh and tfr. Stanley. Some disapprobation was manifested early in the piece— tmt the excellent acting which distinguished its progress obliterated every feeling of dissa- lisfactiou. The Epilogue, decidedly the worst we ever heard, was delivered by Mr. LISTOV, in the character of a poor poet. His laiightcr- moviiig phiz, and extraordinary costume, not unlike that of a Meu'v- Andrew, created some amusement. The rhymes which Mr. I. 18XOV recited, referred not, in the smallest degree, to the play, They were all about gas- lights — but they not exhibit the least portiou of brilliancy. On Sunday morning a serious, and distressing ac- cident occurred ut Woodlands, near Doncaster. As Lord ATHKNRY, son of Mrs. WATKRTON, was walking in the plantations near the house, he uu- fnrtuu- itely set his foot upon the wire of a spring gun, which had been placed there the preceding evening, and received several shot in his knee and legs. We are happy to state, that though severely wounded, his L'i. cship is in a fair of recovery. '
