I Think it a duty incumbent on me, gratefully to ac- knowledge to you, and publicly state the particulars of my Case, for the benefit of those who may be afflicted with Scro- fulous or Scorbutic Affections, that they may know where to apply for a certain and speedy remedy to terminate their suf- ferings. In the year i8oo, 1 had a violent Rheumatic Fever ; after suffering severely a long time, it left a Scorbutic Com- plaint, which broke out in several ulcers on the thigh and hip, and at times my whole body was covered with spots, attended with a violent itching, that rendered life itself irksome. Various attempts were made by the eminent faculty, which did not even alleviate my afflictions; in fact, I got daily worse, was reducedto the last extremity, and despaired of finding relief in this world, when accident thiew a Salop newspaper in my way. 1 there found a case similar to my own, cured by your Antiscorbutic Drops.— As the last remnant of hope, I deter- mined to give them a trial, and purchased a small bottle of Mr. Baugli, Bookseller. At this time the lilcers were much inflamed, and exceeding painful; from the time I began taking them, the inflammation abated, and the ulcers put on . a more healing appearance ; by the time I had taken a second bottle, ( improbable as it may appear to those unacquainted with the just merits of your truly invaluable medicine), I was perfectly restored; for safety's sake I took a third ; and have taken one every Spring for the last seven years, which has preserved me from the lavages of that destructive malady. This account I am ready at all times to testify personally, or by letters, post- paid. I am, Sir, your obedient servant, JOHN DAVIS, Whitesmith. Attested by Mr. Baugh, Bookseller, Ellesmere. To Mr. J. Lignum, Surgeon, Manchester. These Drops arc sold in moulded square bottles, at 6s. and 14s.

MARSHAL NEY.— FRENCH AMNESTY.— GERM FOREIGJf INTELLIGENCE. TRIAL, CONDEMNATION, AND EXECUTION OF MARSHAL NEY. The. Paris Papers from the 3d to the 10th inst. contain the Report of the Trial, Condemnation, and Execution of Ney. COUUT o" F. PEERS, NOV. 4.— Before the Court was opened, a Memorial, entitled, " The Effects of the Military Convention of the 3d July, and the Treaty. of the- 20th November, rela- tive to the Accusation of Marshal Ney," was distributed. At half past ten the trial began. The accused was asked his name and quality; after which the indictment was read, and the witnesses on both sides called. Marshal Ney.— I shall reply to all the questions addressed to me, under the reservation of introducing into my defence ' the clauses relative to me in the capitulation of the 3d July and the treaty of the SOth November. The President then put to the Marshal several interoga- tories.— Ile replied that he was at his estate when he received the order to proceed to Besan$ on, and did not know of Buonaparte's landing till he arrived at Paris. He saw the King. It is said that I tcid the Kiii£ I would bring back Buonaparte in an iron cage. If I said so, it was a foolish thing, but stiH a pardonable one. It proved that I had hi my heart ( striking his breast) the intention of serving the King. The proclamation issued by Ney on the 14th was then read. After some further interrogatories, the witnesses were call- ed in support of the charge. The Duke de Duras deposed to Ney's audience of the King, when fie said lie hoped to bring back Buonaparte in an iron cage. The Prince de Poix confirmed this deposition. Count de Scee, Prefect of Besan$ on, spoke to the loyalty ofthetown upon the arrival of Marshal Ney, who gave him orders to put aside all the money in the public chest. Marshal Ney.— I deny thia. M. de Scee.— The bond of 15,000 francs signed by him is in the War Department. Count de Bourmom.— I have read that Marshal Ney says 1 approved of his Proclamation of the 14th March ; I will give a detailed explanation ; I was with the Marshal, General Lecourbe came in; the Marshal said to him, " I was telling the Count de Bourmont that all was prepared in such a man- ner that the troops might reach the Emperor; the King had quitted Paris; no harm was to be done to him; woe to the man who should do. any. He is a good Prince, but he will be sent on board a ship. What now remains for us to do? Join Buonaparte." What! said Lecourbe. I have no reason to rally under that . The King never did me any thing but good, and the other nothing but harm. Besides I have honour, and therefore will not join Buonaparte; and I too, said the Marshal, and therefore I wiU join him. No more humiliation for me. I will not have my wife come back every night with tears in her eyes on account of ill treatment. After half an hour's discussion lie took up a paper from the table and read the Proclamation. Marshal Ney.— It appears that M. de Bourmont lias got bis part. He thought I should be treated as Labedoyere, and that we should never see each other again;, but at last here we are face to face. I appeat to M. de Bourmont, be- fore God who hears us, if he did not say he was quite satis- fled with the Proclamation ? [ M. de Bourmont made a sign that the assertion was false.] M. de Bourmont then said, that the Marshal might have kept the troops steady. The lrte General Lecourbe's deposition was read, and it cort esponded with thr. t of M. de Bourmont. The rest of the evidence on this day related to the decora- tion, the Eagie, which the Marshal wore on the 14th March, and to the disposition of thetroops. SITTING OF Dec. 5.— Several witnesses deposed to the con- duct of Nev, st Landau, which had not then hoisted the tri- color red flag, but that Ney caused it to be hoisted.— Other witnesses deposed as to the loyal conduct of Ney on the 7th, 8th, and 12th March.— Lieut. Gen. Couut Heudelet, who had served under Ney's orders, did not think, that with the four incomplete regiments Ney had, he could have successfully re- sisted the progress of Buonapart£.— Marshal Davoust, Prince of Eckmuhl, who had been charged by the Provisional Go- vernment to stipulate with the Allies, on the od July, gave testimony as to the articles dictated by himself in the Capitu- lation of Paris, relative to the safety of persons and property, and the orders he had given to break off the conferences, it those dispositions were not ratified. Here Ney's Counsel pressed the Marshal to state his sense of the 12th article; but M. Bellart, theKrng's Attorney General, objected to the ques- tion, on the ground that the act existed as it existed, and could not be altered by declaration. Ney insisted that it was upon the declaration lie relied. " Without it ( said he) is it to be believed that I would not have preferred dying sword in band ? It is in contradiction to this capitulation that I was arrested, and it was on the faith of it that I remained in France." The President decided that the question should not be put.— M. Guillemot, Chief of the Staff ( the SOth wit- ness) described the part he took in the Capitulation of Paris. He had stipulated for an amnesty in favour of persons, what- ever might be their opinions, their offices, and their conduct, and it was the agreeing to this point which induced him to lay down his arms.— The Attorney General next addressed the Court in a long speech, which closed the second day'spro- ceedings. SITTING OP Dec. 6.— M. Berrycr, at the opening of the Court, entered upon the defence of Marshal Ney. Having alluded to the Convention of the 3d July, M. Bcrryer was interrupted by the Attorney General, who opposed the plea attempted to be set up, on the ground, that the Convention alluded to was the work of foreigners, and had not been rati- fied or even approved by the King; and also, that the na tional dignity would be wounded by giving any consistency to a Treaty concluded by the agents of a party of rebels.— Another objection took by the Attorney General was, that the accused was to present his exceptions in cumulo by a stated time; that he had done so without including this ex- ception, and that that stated time had long since elapsed. The President stated, that he had previously consulted the Chamber on this point, and was supported by its opinion, that it wa ® improper to appeal to a Convention, purely military, and absolutely foreign to the King, who never ratified or ap- proved it. He therefore interdicted the bringing forward the Convention of the 3d of July last ( the 12th article of which, it had been contended, had closed the door against pro- secution and punishment). Ney's Advocates then attempted to shew, that he was not only under the protection of French laws, but of the law of nations; a. id that by the Treaty of the '-' 0th of November, a new line round France left Sarre- bruck, the country of the M . rshal, oil the right, by which the Maisha', Frenchman as he was in heart, was no longer Frenchman.— Ney, much affected, with vehemence said, " Yes, I am a Frenchman, and will die <. Frenchman ! i beg that it may be lieard What Thave to say. ( He spoke the rest from a paper ) Hitherto my defence has been free; I perceive it 2s wished to render it otherwise. I thank my Counsel for what tb ; y have done, and are ready to do ; but I desire them rather to cease defending me at all, than defend me im- perfectly. I had rather not bi defended at all, than have the mere shadow of a defence. I am accused against the faith of Treaties, and they will not let me justify myself. I will act like Moreau. I appeal to Europe and to posterity!' The President recommended the defenders to confine them- selves to the circle marked out for them; but Marshal Ney forbade his Counsel to speak, unless tbey were permitted to make use of all the means in their power. A profound si- lence reigned a short time; when, after a conference wit! the King's Mirtisters, the Counsel for the prosecution observ- ed, that as the Marshal renounced all further defence, they renounced the right of reply.— The accused and the audience were then ordered to withdraw, and the Chamber proceeded to deliberate. At half past seven o'clock the Sitting was made public, and the decision announced in the following terms " Considering that it results from the process and the plead- ings, that Marshal Ney, Prince of the Moskwa, is convicted of having, in the night betweeu the 13th and 14th of March, 1815* read, on the public place, at I. ons le Sauhiier, in the de- partment of the Jura, at the head of his army, a Proclama- tion, tending to instigate to revolt and defection; of having immediately issued orders for joining the enemy; and of having, himself, at th? head of his troops, effected that junc- tion. That be is consequently convicted of the crime of high treason, and attack on the safety of the State; an aitack, the object oi which was to change the form of the Government, ana the legitimate order ol succession to the Throne.— De- clares him guilty of the crimes provided against by Articles 77, 87, 88, 102 of the Penal Code— 1 and 5 of title lst of the law of the 21st llrumaire, year5, and of article lst of title 3d of the same law.—( These articles were here read.)— There- fore in application of the said articles condemns Marshal Nev, Marshal of France, Luke of Elchingen, Prince of the Moskwa, late Peer of France, to the punishment of deatii, and the expences. of the . rial." Marshal Ney's name was then ordered to be. struck out of the Begion o. t' Honour, and the Secretary was charged to notify the sentence to the Marshal, who was not present, and which sentence being without ap- . vas required to be executed wittiiu 24 hours. The Marshal, upon returning so his chamber, whilst the Chamber were deliberating upon his fate, appeared to be animated and sustained by a feeling of strong resolution. He pressed his Advocate to his arms, who said, "- You would have it." '* It is all over, my friend ( replied the Marshal) we shall see each other in another world." He asked for dinner, and ate with good appetite; he thought that a small knife was the object Of attention and un- easiness to the persons charged to guard him. " Do you think ( hesaid, on looking at them) that I fear death?" and then threw the knife some distance from him. After dinner he smoaked a segar tranquilly ; then lay down and slept, or seemed to sleep for a couple of hours. When the Chamber of Peers deliberated on the De- cree, 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 Usurper's Emissaries in the night be- tween the 13th and 14th 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 rebel- lion and desertion ; of having ordered his troops to join the Usurper; and of having, himself at their head, effected that junction. The nature of the crime resulting from these acts was the object of the 3d call, and it was in the same manner almost unanimously decided to be high treason, and attack on the safety ofthe State. Finally, two calls took place on the application of the punishment. The result of the last, in which several voters. availed themselves of the power inclining to the mildest opinion, was a majority of 139 for the punishment of death, to be applied according to military forms. The number of voters on each call were 161. The re- sults here stated are independent of the deductions to be made for conformity of opinion between persons re- lated and allied. EXECUTION OF MARSHAL NEY. The sentence was carried into execution on the morn- ing, of the 7th, at 20 minutes past nine o'clock. From three in the morning the guard of the condemned Mar- shal had been given up to the Count de Rochechouart, Commandant of Paris, who had been charged by Lieut.- General Despenois, Commander of the first military di- vision, by the orders of the King's Commissioners, to make the neccssary dispositions for ensuring the execu- tion of the sentence. The interior and exterior safety of the Luxembourg was confined from that moment to M. de Rochechouart. Marshal Ney seemed to be in a sound sleep when the Secretary of the Chamber, M. Cauchy, repaired to him to read his sentence. Before he proceeded to read it, he attempted to address some kind words to him to testify how painful it was to him to be forced to discharge so sad an office. " Sir," said the Marshal, stopping him," 4t> your duty ; every one must do his duty— read." Upon the preamble being read, he said impatiently, " to the fact^ to the fact at once." When his titles were detailed, he'observed, " What good can this do ? Mi- chael Ney, then a heap of dust, that is all." When M. Cauchy came to that Article relating to the Succession to the Crown—" That Law," exclaimed the Marshal, " can- not be applicable to me— it is for the Imperial Family it was made." After the reading, M. Cauchy said, that if in these last moments he wished for the consolations of religion, he might sehd for the Rector of St. Sulpice, who was him- self come to offer his services—" that is sufficient," re- plied the Marshal, " I will think of it." Upon M. Cauehy's observing, that in case any other Clergyman should be more agreeable, he might' send for him, the Marshal said—" once again, I say, that is sufficient, I want no Priest to teach me how to die." Upon its being observed that he was at liberty to take leave of his. wife and children, he desired that they should be written to to come between six and seven in the morn- ing. " I hope," he added, " that your letter will not an- nounce to my wife that her husband is condemned. I will inform her of my fate." M. Cauchy then retired, and the Marshal threw him- self in his clothes on the bed. He soon fell asleep. At four in the morning he was awakened by the arrival of the Marechale, his wife, with her children, and Madame Gamon, his sister. The unfortunate wife, as soon as she entered the chamber, fell in a fit on the ground. The Marshal and his guard raised her. To a long fainting fit, succeeded tears and groans. Madame Gamon, on her knees before the Marshal, was not in aless deplorable con- dition. The children, silent and sad, did not weep. The eldest appeared to be about eleven years of age. The Marshal spoke to them a long time, but in a low tone of voice. On a sudden he rose and intreated his family to withdraw. Left alone with his guards, hewalked up and down the chamber. One of them, the grenadier of Laroche Ja- quelin, said to him, " Marshal, in the situation in which you are, should you not think of God ? It is always good to reconcile ourselves to God. I have seen many battles, and every time I could I confessed myself, and found myself always the better for it." The Marshal stopped, looked at him with a certain in- terest, and then said—" You are in the right: yes, you are in the right— we ought to die as christians. I desire to see the Rector of St. Sulpice." The brave grenadier did not want to be told twice. The Clergyman was forth- with introduced into the chamber of the condemned. He remained shut up with him three quarters of an hour When he retired the Marshal expressed a desire to see him' in his last moments. The virtuous Priest kept his word. At half past eight he returned, and at nine, being informed that all was ready, the Marshal gave him his hand to help him into the coach, saving to him, " Get in first, M. le Cure, I shall be quicker than you on high."— He was dressed in a blue coat and round hat. Two Officers of Gendarmerie were in the coach with him and the Clergyman. About 200 Veterans accom- panied the coach. • The coacli traversing the Garden of the Luxembourg, proceeded to the end ofthe Grand Alley that leads to the Observatory, which was the spot fixed on for the execution. On seeing the coach stop, the Mar- shal, who thought they were going to carry him to the plain of Genelle, expressed some surprise. Asking if that was the place of execution, he \ vas answered in the af- finitive, and immediately got out of the coach. After embracing his Confessor, to whom he gave his snuff- box to give to Madame Marechale, abd some picces of gold to be distributed to the poor, he proceeded with a quick step to within eight paces of the wall. The Confessor re- mained near the coach, praying fervently. The Marshal now faced tiie detachment of veterans who were to fire, and cried out in a strong and loud voice, at the same time taking off his hat with his left hand, and placing his right on hi,, heart, " CSMRAUES, STRAIGHT TO THE HEART— FIRE." The Officer gave the signal at the same moment with his sword, and he fell dead without a single struggle. Twelve balls had taken effect; three in the head. Conformably to military regulations, the body remained exposed on the place of execution for a quarter of an hour. There were but few persons, however, present, for the populace believing that the execution would take place on the Plain of Grenelie, had repaired thither. After remaining exposed a quarter of an hour, the body was placed upon a litter, covered with a cloth, and car- ried by the Veterans to the Hospital of Foundlings. , At half- past six next morning ( Dec. 8) it was conveyed to the burying ground of Pere ia Chaise, in a hearse, fol- lowed by a mourning coach and several other coachcs. It had been inclosed in a leaden coffin within an oak one. During the whole night the RELIGIEUSES of the Hospital prayed near the body. PARIS, NOV. 9.— We are assured that on the day of Marshal Ney's execution, Madame Ney, still ignorant of its having taken place, went to the Thuilleries at ten in the morning to implore the King's clemency, and that the Duke of Duras, to whom she addressed herself in order to be introduced, was obliged to inform her tiiat tile Mar- shal no longer existed. On the day of Ney's execution, the Duke of Richelieu, in the King's name, proposed a law of amnesty. By this law, tlie King's Ordinance of the 24th July is to be exe- cuted relative to lill individuals comprised in the first ar- ticle of it. Those comprised in the second are to quit f raace in two months alter tht law. The persons named in the first article, which is to conti- nue in force, besides Nev and I. abedoyere, both of whom have already suffered, are the two brothers Lallemand, Drouet D'Erlon, I. efebvre DesnouetteSf Ameii, Brayer, Gilly, Motiton Duvernet, Grouchy, Clause!, Laborde, Debelle, Drouet, Cam- brone, Lavalefte, and Rovigo.' Several of these individuals have escaped out of the country. At the conclusion oi the Duke de Richelieu's speech, on introducing the projet for an amnesty, there was a spontane- ous movement ofthe whole assembly, and prolongrcd cries of " Vive le Roi!" We are happy to learn, by the last advices from Lausanne, a source least exposed to suspicion, that the Duke d'Angou- leme, who was represented as an indifferent spectator, if not an abettor, of the late horrible and disgraceful outrages, did, on the contrary, interfere with great zeal, in order to" re- press them. We siucerely rejoice at this account; bccause, if any circumstance, more than another, could have proved fatal' to the character of that Prince, and to the in- terests of his Family, it would be his being implicated ill a system of religious and political persecutions. STOLEN or STRAYED, out of a Close, at Radfo.- d, near Nottingham, on Wednesday the 15th of November last, a BROWN MARE, fifteen Hands high, seven Years old, a Blaze down her Face, a few Saddle Spots, and two white Hind Legs:— IF STRAYJSD, a handsome Reward will be given, and all reasonable Charges; but if STOLEN, TWO GUINEAS, on Conviction of the Offender, will be paid by Mr. WILLIAM; FREARSON, Parliament Street, Nottingham. By an order . of the day, dated the SOlh of November, Prince Blucher has dissolved his head- quarters. He was, on the 8th inst. to proceed to Aix- la- Chapelle, on his return to Prussia. His Royal Highness the Prince Regent has been graciously pleased to make choice of six Admirals and four Captain's, as his Naval Aides- de- Camp. The Hon. Rear Admiral II. Blackwood is one of the distinguished Officers Upon whom this honour has fallen. There are no arrangements with which we feel more satisfaction, than' those which tend to indentify in interest and favour those two branches of our national pride, the Navy and Army. The British troops, which are returning home from France, are daily expected at Dover. They consist of 15,000 men. The lst Guard » , forming the advance, set out from Paris last Sunday morning. Lord Whitworth, it is said, applied more than three months ago to be re- called from his situation as I- Old Lieu- tenant of Ireland. The Vice- Royalty has been since twice offered to the Duke of Wellington, who declined accepting it. Within a very few days, we understand, two other Noble- men, the Duke of Rutland, and Earl of Powis, have been offered, but buth have declined this office. The trial of Sir G. Prevost is fixed for the 15th of January, and to take place at Chelsea Iiarraks. The noted Major Semple died suddenly at Lisbon on the 28th- ult. He was on his way to Morocco, to which he had said he had engaged to transport himself, on the Prince Re- gent's remitting the sentence passed on him at his last convic- tion, for defrauding a cheesemonger of bacon and eggs. About 20 skaiters on the Serpentine River were on Sun- day last immersed by the breaking of the ice; and one lad was drowned. Mr. Stokes, the Bristol pedestrian, has accomplished his undertaking of walking 1000 miles in 20 successive days, and has done it with the greatest apparent ease. Tuffee and his son, on Tuesday ( the 9th day) accomplished 530 miles of the 1200, at ten minutes before nine at night. Eaton still continues his mile an hour, and is confident of success. Belting is now in his favour, having only one third of his task to perform. LONDON MARKETS. CORN EXCHANGE, MARK LANE, Monday, Dec. 11. Rather higher prices were made of Spring Corn, in some instances, in our market, after Monday in last week, which aiso sold freely in general, and more money was asked for Wheat likewise this morning, but the buyers evinced no dispo- sition to increase their purchases from any apprehensions about the weather, which had been much in contemplation. The quality of the Wheat fresh up has improved considerably, and this in some degree advances the nominal currency, otherwise the terms obtained give, in no respect, a greater comparative value, nor is the trade brisk except for the finest sorts. Flour is somewhat more current at the quoted rates. Rye is cheaper to- day. Peas are about 2s. per quarter dearer. Beans have re- verted toour last currency, or even lower, unless very fine. Nor does Barley any longsr exceed 28s. to 29s. for good malting runs, or 30s. to Sis. per quarter for superfine pickcd samples; this article is far from being so good as was looked for, as to the growth of the present year. Oats may be considered as nearly Is. per quarter dearer, and in demand. Brown Mustard Seed declines again, being more abundantly in supply. In other respects the trade manifests no particular variation; the present arrival of all sorts is plentiful, and mostly adequate to the wa;-. ts ofthe season.

Our Wheat trade continues very heavy, and but few sales have been made to- day at Monday's prices; a good deal remains unsold, although tendered at a reduccion of Is. per quarter.— Barley is Is. per quarter cheaper, having a large supply this morning. Beans go off slowly at a decline of Is. per quarter- In Oats, Peas, and other articles, there is no alteration. SMITHFIELD.— Monday, December 11.

Kaye Mawer, A. M. rector of West- bere, in Kent, and curate of the perpetual curacies of Thur- garton and Hoveringham. At Newark, on Saturday last, Mr. Jonathan Turner, of Bus- lingthorpe, to Miss Smith, of the former place. On Thursday, at St. Mary's, Mr. George Coupland, to Miss Mary Vickers, both of this place. DIED]— On Sunday last, at Langar, in this county, aged 83, Mrs. Whitehead, of that village, widow. At Newark, on Mo. nday last, Mr. Isaac Willock. Yesterday morning, at his house, in Westhorpe, near South- well, Major William Watson. On Monday the 11th inst. Sir. Thomas Marriott, of Broad Lane, in this town, cow- keeper, aged 53. On Thursday, after a few hours' illness, deservedly respect- ed, Hannah, the wife of Mr. Wm. Morris, of Narrow Marsh. This morning, Mrs. Dufty, wife of Mr. Thomas Dufty, junr. hosier, of Mount Street, in this town, aged 26. On Saturday last, Andrew Laccy, brewer, of Beilar Gate, aged 83; and on the following day, Mr. Thomas Miller, of the Leen Side, aged 83. We understand, the Committee for conducting the opening of the High Pavement chapel organ, have spared neither trouble nor expence to render the performance worthy the attention of the lovers of sacred music.—( See advt. J— The organ proves to be an uncommon fine- toned instrument. The collection at Castle Gate Meeting House, on Sun- day last, after two very impressive sermons, preached by the llev. Joseph Gilbert, one of the tutors of the Independent College, near Rotherham, in behalf of the Sunday Schools of that establishment, amounted to ^£ 74. 3s. lid. The second public performance of the Thespians, at our Theatre, last evening, for their own benefit, wa3 less numer- ously attended than on the former occasion. Nevertheless the audience experienced much gratification by the spirit and discrimination with which the principal characters in the play of Douglas were supported, by Messrs. Ward, Fidler, Pearson, & c. assisted by Miss Pierce and Miss Yarnard, from the Theatre, Sheffield. The comic interludes and songs were highly applauded ; and the farce of liaising the ll'ind passed off with increased reputation to the performers. Mrs. M'Gibbon, late of our Theatre, made her first appear- ance in Edinburgh, lastweek, in the character of Mrs. Ilaller. STREET ROBBERIES.— About dusk on Saturday evening last, some thieves opened the doors of a bleacher's cart, standing opposite the shop door of Mr. Pawlett, chandler, & c. on the Long Row, belonging to Mr. Pearson, of Basford, and stole therefrom a bag, containing a quantity of cotton lace, and fine cotton. The carrier, who was near at hand, heard the doors open, and immediately ran to see what was amiss, when he saw a man taking the bag away, whom he instantly collared ; but two of the fellow's accomplices coming up to his as sistance, they overpowered the carrier, and succeeded in car- rying off the property. In the scuffle, the thief that had the bag lost his hat, which now lies at the Police Office for in- spection, and may, it is hoped, eventually lead to his disco- very. In the course of the same day, the Hucknall crrricr's wag- gon was robbed of goods of the value of £ 50. and upwards, while standing in the market place of this town. BURGLARY AT BINGHAM.— The house of tne Revd. R. Lowe, Rector of Bingham, was feloniously broken into last night, and a great quantity of silver and plated arti- cles stolen thereout. A reward of £ 100. is offered for the discovery of the offenders.—( SEE ADVT.) On Saturday last, Wm. Jackson, a boy about eleven years of age, was committed to the gaol of this town, by C. L. Morley, Esq. Mavor, and E. Swann, Gent. Alderman, for trial at the next Quarter Sessions, on a charge of stealing a leather pocket book, and some silver, of the value of seven shillings, the property of Deborah Hind. CAUTION TO CHEMISTS, & C.— FULMINATING MERCURY.— On Friday evening last, Henry Jephson, apprentice to Mr. Cow- lishaw, surgeon, & c. of Mansfield, was drying a small quan- tity of fulminating mercury, in a gallipot, at the distance of three quarters of a yard from the fire, when it exploded, and blew off the fore linger of his left hand, and so lacerated the middle finger, as to render amputation necessary. Two children were in the shop at the time, but providentially es- caped with little injury. We are happy to say the young man is doing well. On Monday last, a writ of habeas corpus was received by Mr. Staveley, of York Castle, for the removal of John Rower, alias Rawer, alias Raworth, formerly of Lenton, near Notting- ham, but iate of Wilberfoss, near York, and is charged by Messrs. Attwood and Co. of Worcester, bankers, with hav- ing committed a forgery upon them, for which offence he is to take his trial at the next assizes. IMPORTANT TO MINERS.— We lately observed that Sir H. Davy had discovered a method of lighting coal mines in such a manner as to avoid the lamentable accidents which have recently occurred from the explosion of carburcted hy- drogen.— The method is as follows:— Sir Humphry pro- posts that a lantern shall be provided, in all respects air tight, that two perforations shall be made in the lower part of it sufficient to admit just air enough for the combustion of an oil lamp, and that one aperture shall be made at the top, to permit the escape of the rarified air.— By this means, while the lamp continues to be surrounded with common atmos- pherical air, it will continue to burn undisturbed; but the moment it comes in contact with the foul air, the flame of the lamp is so much increased by the carbureted hydrogen, that the air within the lantern is immediately exhausted, and the light goes quietly out, without the possibility of an explosion taking place. Experiments to try the effects of this method have been often repeated, and if it be as effectual in the mine as it has proved to be in the laboratory, it cannot fail to be of the utmost consequence to the world. The plan proposed by Dr. Murray, who has turned his at- tention to the subject, is the same, in so far as a lamp is em- ployed, having the necessary apertures adapted to maintain combustion. But as a farther preservative he introduces the air into his lamp by means of a tube, to be supplied either from the air of the mine itself, but taken from the floor of it, or conveyed in tubes from the shaft of the mine. The car- bureted hydrogen, being lighter than common atmospherical air, rises to the roof of the mine, and remains there, while the lower part of it is filled with uncontaminated respirable air. Ly this means, there seems to be scarcely a possibility of dan ger, excepting in the case of some accident happening to the lamp, when the dangerous gas, if any existed, would imme- diately come in contact with the flame, the direction of it be- ing left to the action which it always has upon the respiration of workmen. If Sir II. Davy's plan be found to succeed, even this contingency will be avoided, and the very existence of a noxious vapour will itself be rendered the safeguard of the miner, from the notification he will receive of its presence by the extiguishing of his lights. On Wednesday last, in the evening, Mr. Joseph Lancaster, the founder of the Royal Lancasteriau System, gave a Lecture ( in a commodious room at the White Hart Inn, Gainsburgh) on Education, from the first rudiments of learning; shewing, by very explanatory drawings, the most excellent manner of teaching and correction of the different sexes and ages of youth; and concluded with delivering a very sublime Poem ( written by Mr. Montgomery) on the different Stages of Man. On Thursday evening, he gave a second Lecture, in the Town Hall, to a very respectable company of ladies and gentlemen, on National Education ; in which, among many other interesting particulars, was shewn the facility with which youth may be trained in arithmetic and needle- work ; and he also gave a par- ticular account of his travels through Ireland, Scotland, and the North of England, and of the gracious reception he met with from all ranks of people, and particularly those in high life, who universally entered into his plans. And such an increase of schools has been the result of his visit, as evinces the public conviction and lasting good of Mr. Lancaster's plan.— He finished his lecture by reciting a Poem, written by a young man, of Belfast. EXTENSIVE ROBBERY.— On Monday morning, when the gentlemen engaged in the Newbury Bank entered it to proceed to business, they discovered that the whole of the property had been stolen, amounting, it is supposed, to near £ 20,000. All the books and documents relative to the Bank, were also carried away. The robbery had been effected bv means of false keys. It was in vain to keep the Bank " 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 business. An express was ? ent off to the Public Office, Bow Street, where every as- sistance was rendered to the distressed parties. The of- ficers have discovered that Bank Notes, part of the stolen property, to the amount of upwards of JFESOO. were paid to a respectable man at Abingdon, on Monday morning, for the purchase of some property. There is every reason to believe that the extensive depredation hail been long in contemplation i> y some old tiuevfc*. FEMALE PEDKSTRIANISM.— On Saturday evening a match pedestrian, who is to commence in a few days after the ter- mination of Tuffee and his son's performances, is Mary Frith, residing in Maidstone, who is backed by three gentlemen for 30 guineas, to perform 30 miles for 20 days in the Roebuck field ; she is 36 years of age, and a mother of six children. Her friends, who are extremely numerous, are all on the alert offering odds. It appears, that her almost daily habit has for many years been that of hard labour, performing fre- quently 20 and 25 miles a day, travelling the country with sundry articles for sale, and returning to her family at night. DERBYSHIRE MA& RIED]— On the 6' th inst. Mr. George Webster, to Miss E. Eyre, third daughter of Mr. Samuel Eyre, farmer, all of Radborne, near Derby.

J ; MJDDLEMOBE HOUSE.— BY A LADY, Who having been recently summoned to attend a sick relative, at Grantham, was induced to visit the spot which had been the happy scene of her juvenile clays. Her surprise at finding that all which had formerly charmed her imagination, had vanish'd " like the baseless fabric of a vision," save a few solitary trees, gave rise to the following effusion, which is inscribed, as a tribute of respect, to the memory of a family, whose exalted worth has endeared them to the hearts of every native of Grantham. Once lovely. spot— O ! say what ruthless arm Has thus destroy'd thy ev'ry graceful charm ? Where now those stately elms, which rose so high, Sublime in air, and seem'd to brave the sky ? Whiit hand, relentless, gave the fatal blow. Which has, for ever, laid their graces low ? Yet some few trees their wonted station keep, The Poplars tremble, and the Willows weep ; As tho' enamour'd of this sickly mould, They cling to earth, and fear to quit their hold. Of human race a faithful emblem these; Frail Man on earth expects eternal ease ; Secure he rests ' neath Fortune's fuvour'd gleam, Till some dire ill o'ercloiids the flatt'ring scene, Or death itself dissolves til' enchanting dream. Where now those walks,* where in my youthful days With jocund steps I've traced th'intricate maze, Well pleased to meet Maria's} sparkling eye, ~ Or thro' the verdant bound fair Helenf spy And at a glance the lovely S -|| descry. No more proud Athens boast thy art divine, Your Cretan labyrinth now must yield to mine: For oft within those innocent retreats. The haunt of Dryads, and of Bards tjbe seats, The virgin train their sportive gambols play'd, There, likewise two fair Kings § have freqtlent stray'd, At stated hours, from Love's* stem fetters free, With hearts elate, and high extatic glee,. V We haii'd thy genial hour, sweet " Liberty.", A. When tired with. play, a shady bower they sought, With vernal green and curious Chinese wrought; Graceful it stood upon a rising hill, Near to the confines of a niurm'ring rill, Whose dulcet sounds did once with joy infuse A charming subject for my infant muse: When sealed round, some wond'rous tale was told Of Nymphs transform'd to trees, and Gods to gold; How fairy elves were oft by moonlight seen, How midnight spectres staik'd along the green; When superstition seized the youthful throng, W* e chased the phantom with a lively song; While tunfful birds, with warbling notes rejoice In strains melod'ous, join'd each cheerfijl voice. B\ it, ah! no more in those gay walks will shine The. rare descendants of each ancient line,}}: Where British worth, and Scotia's fame combine, Now Fancy, sweet enthusiastic maid, Lead me where once a crystal fountain play'd: Methinks I see the curling waters stream, .. And proudly greet the Sun's translucent beam; • But whilst aloft the weeping arches flow, Th « lucid drops impress the fount below. Why wept thou thus, delightful fountain say,- . Did some terrestrial Gpd.'- s prophetic- ray Thy wat'ry breast inspire, thy doom foietel, . That in this place thou bad'st not long in dwell? Or wcrt thou once, as ancient Burds declare,. • Some '- i. vi. ng nymph, some coy and virt'aus fair ? Say, didst thou thus thy'former self ( Jfplore V Lament a ihape thou must assume no more ? If such thy lot, if such thy graces shone, Why not, like Niob'e, weep thyself to stone ? Then might'st thou stood this wond'rqus truth to toil, That once thou liv'd a maid, then died a petrid well. Near yon lone walk, fair trees promiscuous stray'd, The boughs united form'd. a grateful shade; Around their trunks the spiry . tendrils twine, The creeping ivy clasp'dihe mantling vine; There myrtles grew, the starry jesmine fiow'd, The bullfinch warbl'd, and the turtles coo'd.- • Now, from yon hill, where- bleating flocks once fed, And where Belmount once rear'd its golden head, Percb'd on a yew, sad Philomel complains, While mournful echo joins her plaintive strains; And thou, sweet stream, which softly glides below, In sad meanders joins their title of. woe, . Bedew the marge which houi; ds. thy amber frame, And with thy tears inscribe a iviiu. ui. EMORE'? name. Farewell, dear shades,. that. once t> i> gaily shone, Like all earth's shadowy jtiys, how soon you're gone i O . could my muse with bolder pinions soar, Adorn her numbers with the classic lore, Thou dear lov'd spotyin- ev'ry flowing line, Should vie with Tempe, should like Arcadia shine ; Yet shall thy fame surviye to future times, iih^ ll live $ ecurpin these unlearned rhymes, Of? fate permits ( let none this truth deny) Thie verse, to live— although the muse must die. * Thie labyrinth or snake walks. } Miss M.

My armies tread no distant shore; The frenzied dream of pride is o'er, And I mpst live obscurely. Though long my might impelled the blast; Now on a paltry island cast, Where scarce is known my glory past, I shall be watched securely. Tor this, from home and kindred led, Their hearts by thoughts of glory fed, Have France's Children nobly bled, Excelling mortal bravery J For this was heard the battle fray, When sunk pale Prussia's transient ray; Or when in Austria's evil day, She purchased peace by slavery ? For this was forged Helvetia's chain; The hoof of war impressed on Spain; And wrought the murderous deeds which stain The page of martial story ? For this was Russia's snow defiled; When splendours false bedecked the wild; As corpse on corpse was rudely piled To blaze in fearful glory ? Vain victim of an idle name I. Had not ambition's guilty flame Allured me on to search of fame, I had not dxoop'd thus painfylly. Down craven thought! it once was mine To lead the infuriate warrior- line; Nor will I to my foes repine— * I view them still disdainfully. Like hounds that shun the threatened lash ; They crouch beneath my eyes dark flash . Now sneer they at my courage rash. And use me thus despiteful!/. I fell: and France is bound a slave ; But soon her flag shall proudly wave, And rally rou » d it all her brave, To Freedom marching rightfully. Further particulars of Buonaparte's arrival at St. Helena have reached town in letters from that island to the 22d of October. On the 10th of that month, his Majesty's ship Icarus arrived there with the first tidings of Buonaparte's recent surrender, and of bis destination to that island as a place of confinement. The inhabitants naturally were struck with no small degree of surprise. It was of course learnt at tlie same time, that a considerable addition would be made to the population of the island by the new garrison, as well as the attendants of the Ex- I- miperor, the Commissioners to watch him, their suites, & e. Accordingly all was immedi- ately hurry and bustle. Provisions experienced a sudden and enormous rise, in price. Eggs, which were before about three shillings a do^ en, now advanced to a shilling a piece. Almost every other article of produce in the same proportion, and even land itself assumed an increased value of SO per cent, which is not to be wondered at, considering the small extent of the island, and the still smaller pottion that is fit for cultivation, to feed the increased number of mouths. Upwards of nine hundred troops arrived in the souadron under charge of the Northumberland. A great bustle took place on the 11th in making preparations for Buonaparte's reception; SO. of the Company's soldiers were stationed to guard the gates, and orders were immediately issued by the Governor, that no fishing boats were to be out of the har- bour after four o'clock in the afternoon. On the 13th the fleet arrived; when some persons from the town were al- lowed to go on board the squadron to dine. It was some days before all was ready for conveying Buonaparte to the house allotted for his reception. When he landed, he was dressed in a green coat, white waistcoat, light coloured small- clothes, white stockings, and cocked hat. The coat was trimmed with gold, and a plain gold epaulette was placed on each shoulder. He held in his hand an elegant telescope, and cast his eyes around him with great eagerness to survey the new objects; possibly not without hope of noticing some particulars, which might, on a fit occasion, assist him to escape, The Company's troops on the Island were immediately to be sent to the Cape, to do duty there. The island is very closely watched; signals between all the ports in the island and the ships; guard boats and brigs cruise round ; so that unless he can fly, it will be impossible for him to escape. No one is allowed to be out of the ship after sun- set, and every ship is ready to slip at the first notice. MITRAT.— A letter from Vienna states, that an Austrian Officei; arrived there as a courier, has given the following de- tail respecting the last movements of Murat, and of which he was an. eye- witasss at. Pi? zo. Murat paving been wounded and made pr^ Aner, a female precipitated herself upon him, and tore his cockades and decorations from him with rage. After hearing his sentence read be wrote to his family, and requested a pair of scissors to cut off his hair, in order to send it to his wife, but his request was refused. He then requested that lie might be shot by the small detachment of his old guard, which was then at Pizzo, but this was also refused.— Nevertheless, Ins request that the execution should take pijice in the Great Hall of tile Commandant, of Pizzo was acceded to. Twelve Sicilian soldiers were then placed close to the door of the apartment. Murat bid farevvell to the Priest who accompanied him, entered resolutely into the Ilall, uncovered his breasf, gave the word " fire," and fell immediately, pierced with eight balls. The people of the town were then per- mitted to enter. The body was buried at night by order of the Commandant, and not carried to Naples as reported. PARTITION OF THE CONTRIBUTIONS TO BE PAID BY FRANCE. HAMBURGH, NOV. 29.— The Hamburgh papers of this date, contain a very long article, entitled Protocol relating to the partition of 700. millions of francs, to be paid by France to the Allied Powers, which is to be instead of a special Con- vention on, this subject. The first articles relate to the erection of fortresses, for which purpose the fourth part of 750,000,000, 50 millions be- ing added, on account of the cession of the fortresses of Saar Louis, which makes it unnecessary to erect a fortress on that side. Thus the sum of 187£ millions is appointed for fortress- es, viz. 137- J in money, and Saar Louis, which is valued at 50 millions. Of this sum the Netherlands, obtain 60 millions, Prussia 20 millions, Bavaria 15 millions, Spain millions, Sardinia .10 millions, 5 millions for the fortifications of Mentz, and 20 millions to build a new fortress on the Upper Rhine, • together 137- J millions. There remain therefore 567 millions and an half to be di- vided. Though all the Allied Courts have shewn equal zeal, yet some, as Sweden, have been dispensed from active co- operation ; and others, as Spain, Portugal, and Denmark, been hindered from effectually contributing to the result. Switzer- land has not acceded to'the Treaty of the 25th of March on the same footing as the other powers. However, to give them a just indemnify, it is agreed to divide twelve millions and an half among them; . so that Spain obtains five millions ; Portugal two millipns; Denmark two millions and an half; Switzer- land three millions. The hurden of tie . war having fallen upon the armies of the Duke of Wellington and Prince Blucher, and those armies having also taken Paris, it is agreed to give 25 millions of the French contributions to Great Britain, and 25 to Prussia, re- serving to Great Britain to arrange with the other powers whose troops formed a part of the army of the Duke of Wel- lington. Of the other 506 millions, Prussia, Austria, Russia, and England, obtain each one- fifth, and the other smaller States one fifth between them. Sardinia and tile Netherlands to be excluded, because they have received such an accession of territory, and their share to be divided between Austria and Prussia. [ The. remaining articles relate chiefly to the division of the money to be paid by France for the pay of the troops, & C. J STATE PAPER. TO HIS EXCELLENCY THE DUKE DE RICHELIEU, The Allied'Sovereigns having confided to Marshal the Duke of Wellington the command in chief of those of their troops, which, according to the 5th article of the Treaty, concluded this day with France, are to, remain in this country during a certain number of. years, the undersigned Ministers, & c, think it their duty to give some explanation to his Excellency the Duke de Richelieu as to the nature and extent of the powers attached to this command. Although chiefly guided with respect to this measure, by motives teuding to the safety and welfare of their subjects, and being very far from having any intention of employing their troops in aid of the Police, or of the internal Administration of France, or in any manner that might compromise or in- terfere with the free exercise of the Royal authority in this country, the Allied Sovereigns have, however, in considera- tion of the high interest which they take in supporting the power of legitimate Sovereigns, promised to his Most Chris- tian Majesty to support him with their arms against every revolutionary cpnvulsion which might tend to overthrow by force, the order of things at present established, and to menace again the general tranquillity of Europe.— They do not, however, dissemble, that in the variety of forms under which the revolutionary spirit might again manifest itself in France, doubts might arise as to the nature of the case which might call for the intervention of a foreign force; and feeling the difficulty of framing any instructions precisely applicable to each particular case, the Allied Sovereigns have thought it better to leave it to the tried prudence and discretion of the Duke of Wellington, to decide wheD and how far it may be advisable to employ the troops under his orders, always sup- posing that he would not in any case so determine without having conccrted his measures with the King of France, or without giving information, as soon as possible, to the Allied Sovereigns, of the motives which may have induced him to Come to such a determination. And, as in order to guide the Duke of Wellington ill tile choice of his arrangements, it will be important that he should be correctly informed of the events which may occur in France, the Ministers of the four Allied Courts, accredited to his most Christian Majesty, have received orders to maintain a regular correspondence with the Duke of Wellington, and to provide at the same time for an intermediate one between the French Government and the Commander in Chief of the Allied troops, for the purpose of transmitting to the French Government the communications which the Duke of Wellington may have occasion to address to it, and of communicating to the Marshal the suggestions or requisitions which the, Court » { France may wish in future to make to him. The undersigned flatter themselves that the Duke de Riche- lieu will readily recognise in these arrangements the same cha- racter and the same . principles, which have been manifested in concerting aud adapting the measures of the military oc- cupations of a part of France. They carry with them also, on quitting this country, the consoling persuasion, that not- withstanding'the elements of disorder, which France may still contain, the effect of revolutionary events, a wise and paternal Government, proceedingin a proper manner to tranquillisc and conciliate the minds of the people, and abstaining from every act contrary to such a system, may not only succeed in main- taining the public tranquillity, but also re- establishing univer- sal union and confidence, relieving likewise, as much as the proceedings of the Government can effect it, the Allied Powers from the painful necessity of having recourse to those mea- sure's, which," in case of " any new convulsion, would be im- periously prescribed to them by the duty of providing for the safety of their own subjects, and the general tranquillity of Europe. . . The undersigned have the honour, & c. ( Signed) METTERNICH. HARDENBERP. CASTLEREAGH. CAPO D'lSTRIA. Paris, November 20, 1815. THE SEVEN IONIAN ISLANDS. In our paper of last week, we expressed our satisfaction that the Seven Islands were added to the British dominion, and that at length, like the ancient boast of the Kings of Spain, it may be said of England, that we have a garden in every climate of the globe; tiiat if the main seat of our empire be in the cold regions of tlie north, we have vineyards, gardens, and pleasure grounds, in climes more near to the sun. Why, indeed, should not a kingdom possess the ornaments of wealth as well as wealth itself. If an individual is to be deemed more happy ( as he is to be so deemed) who makes a liberal use of his opulence, aud who, having the means of en- joyment, employs them in enjoying,— who distributes his wealth to all about him, and surrounds himself with the graces, elegancies, and even luxuries of life and taste, why should not a great kingdom add to its external splendour by a similar use of its wealth and power? We have always re- garded Colonies in this point of view. They are so many foreign farms, gardens, and vineyards of the Mother Country. They extend our name, our arts, and our religion. They animate industry by providing new materials. They relieve population' by affording' unbroken ground to industrious labourers, and they revive an effete and worn- out country by giving it the institutions, the manners, and the commer- cial spirit and capital of a more vigorous society. But though everv one, as far as our own observation goes, feels the same satisfaction with oiirselves that Great Britain has procured this important accession to her commerce, it has excited our surprise that so few are informed of the actual state and value of these Islands, and that beyond their mere name, scarcely any thing is known of them to the greater part of the public. Under these circumstances, we conceive we shall perform an acceptable service by giving a brief account of what is now become our own, and of which, therefore, it imports us all to know something. We are indebted for the the general material to a work recently published,— Holland's Travels in the Ionian Islands. We begin with the Island of Zante,, the antien't Zacynthus. Its circumference is nearly sixty miles, and in size, as well as population, it ranks next to Corfu and Cephalonia amongst the Ionian Isles. The greater part of the Island is compos- ed of an extensive and most delightful and fertile plain, bounded by a range of hills, which gradually descending at. first, and thence gently rising, form at length the coast. The outline of the coast, which is sofl and beautiful, is in- tercepted by two bays, oil one of which, indenting the island rather deepfy, stands the city of Zante, the capital of the Island. The number of inhabitants is calculated at - 30,000, of which about. 16,000 reside in the town. The great plain of the Island , at once affords a most plentiful sustenance to the inhabitants, and abundant materials for commerce.-—" Looking down upon this plain ( says Dr. Holland), from any of the surround- ing eminences, the country has the aspect of one rich and most delightful garden and vineyard. Every where is an air of the most luxuriant fertility. Numerous villages and coun- try houses are scattered over the plain, each surrounded by its garden and grove, in which, with the verdure of temper- ate climes, are groves of orange, lime, and pomegranate. I do not know a spot of more dressed aud finished beauty,— of more natural charms and cultured neatness, than the Island of Zante." The island of Cephalonia is larger than, that of Zante. It is at least one hundred miles, in circumference; it is known amongst sailors by a large mountainous ridge, called the Black Mountain, aud which is tlw Mount Enos of antiquity. The island contains sixty thousand inhabitants. The com- merce of the island is very considerable, chiefly in fruits, wine, and oil. The estates ( property being much divided): are very numerous, and thereby very highly cultivated and beautiful. The flowers are of the most radiant colours. A perpetual sea- blue sky almost perpetually covers the island.-— It abounds in pasture and in cattle, Cerigo, the ancient Cythera, the birth- place of the celebrated Helen,. is rather rocky, and therein not 60 fertile as the other Islands; but this state which renders it unfit for corn, adapts it for the vine. The rock, however, is no where so prominent as to destroy the beauty of the surface, which produces every variety of corn, oil, wine, olives, raisins, honey, and wax. In the year 1811, a statistical account of this island enumerates about 16,000 sheep and goats, 1,300 horses, and 2,500 oxen.— The number of bee- hives ( the country abounding in herbs, sweet- scented shrubs, and wild thyme) was 1,210; and the honey is of excellent quality. This island is full of ancient re collections to the liberal scholar. The prospects from its eminences cannot but fill his imagination with the deeds aud images of the days of old. On the one side of him are the mountains of Lacedemon ;— on the other, though at a greater distance, the shores of Ancient Crete, the cradle, perhaps, of Greece itself, of letters, civilization, and arts. Ithaca, so well known as the theme of Homer, and as the Island of Ulysses, is not more than about 20 miles in length, and 4 or 5 in breadth. The scenery is. rendered striking and bold by the abrupt outline of the mountains; and there is no want of landscape scenery. Narrow valleys, having groves of olives, orange, and almond trees, open in long vistas to the sea, and if money were well laid out in some of these plains and valleys, there would not be more picturesque grounds in the Mediterranean. The population of Ithaca is about 8000. The principal articles of commerce are currants, oil, and wine. Santa Maura, the Leucadia of the ancients, is much larger, more fertile, and more picturesque than Ithaca. Where the vaHeysopen from amongst the mountains towards the sea, are many romantic and picturesque villages, surrounded by groves of oranges and olives. The town of Santa Maura is very con siderable. The commerce is the same with that of the other Islands. The population of the Island is about 18,000. As the magnitude of Corfu has rendered it sufficiently known, it is unnecessary to add more of it, than that it is the most considerable of the. whole Seven. It is extremely fertile in corn, wine, oil, fruits, and honey; and the climate is not inferior to that of any other.,— Paxo, the smallest isle of the Union, is a kind of detached portion, or at least may be so regarded of Corfu. The Hon. General Maitland, Governor of Malta, is to have the chief command of the Ionian islands, with the title of Go- vernor- General of the British Islands and Possessions in the Mediterranean Seas; he is also to have two Lieut.- Governors under him— it is supposed General Campbell. at Malta, aud Sir Lowry Cole at Corfu. In the Court of King's Bench, last week, Mr. Harvey, printer of the Day newspaper, had a verdict against him with £ 50 penalty and costs, for inserting an advertisement ofl'ering 150 guineas to procure the advertiser, an appoint- ment in the West India Docks. This was the first proceed- ing under the statute 49 Geo. III. which was brought in by Mr. Perceval, for more effectually preventing the sale of offices and situations under Government. The advertisement was sent by a man named Clark, with the evident purpose of en- trapping the printer, and the Jury expressed their regret at being compelled to find their verdict against him. UTTERING TEN SHILLING TOKENS.— l. ockett v. Tuft. This was an information lately heand before the Magistrates in the Justice Room, at the Shire Hall, Stafford, charging the defendant with having uttered a ten shilling note or draft, payable at Messrs. Ilushbury's, Biiston, contrary to tke sta- tute, 48th Geo. III. cap. 88, the 2d and 3d sections of which declare ail promissory or other notes, under the value of 20s. to be absolutely void and of no effect after the 1st October, 1808, and subjects all persons uttering such notes to the pe- nalty of any sum not exceeding £ 20. and not less than £ 5. for every offence, at the discretion of the Justice of the Peace who shall bear and determine the case.— The fact having been proved, the defendant was convicted in the mitigated penalty of £ 5. The Magistrates observed, that this was the first case that had come before them under the statute above mentioned, the provisions of which, they thought, could not be generally known, or the inconvenience which had occur- red. in other parts of the country from the uttering and nego- tiating notes or drafts similar to that in question might hare been prevent^, The following account of an Institution, established at Barcelona for the punishment of female delinquents, will, per- haps, amuse our readers -. we dare not hope that it will ope- rate to correct the conduct of any person to whom it could at all apply, but, perhaps, it may make some " gall'd jade wince" a little. " There is one house of correction, which is too remark- able to be passed over in silence. It embraces two objects; the first is the reformation of prositutes and female thieves; the second, the correction of women who fail in their obliga- tions to their husbands, and of those who either neglect or disgrace their families. The house for these purposes being divided into distinct portions, without any communication between them, the one is called real casa de galera, and the other real casa de correction. For each of those, who arc shut up in the former, the King allows seven deniers to purchase eighteen ounces of bread, and nine denieVs, which is nearly one penny sterling, to procure meat. The fund for this arises from fines ; but to aid this fund, the women are obliged to work as long as they ' can see. By their labour they earn about five shillings a month, half of which they have for themselves, whilst, of the other half the Alcayde, or Governor, has one- tenth, to stimulate his attention to his duty. These women, working thus from light to light, would earn much more, were it not for the multitude of holidays. The ladies who deserve more severe correction than their husbands, fathers, or other relatives can properly administer, are con- fined by the magistrates, for a term proportioned to their offences, in this royal mansion, or casa real de correction. The relation, at whose suit they are taken into custody, pays three sueldos, or fourpence halfpenny per day, for their main- tenance; and with this scanty provision they must be con- tented. I- lere they are compelled to work, and the produce of their labour is deposited for them, till the time of their confinement is expired. The whole of the building will con- tain five hundred women ; but at present, there are only one hundred and thirteen. Among them are some ladies of con- dition, who are supposed to be visiting some distant friends. Here they receive bodily correction, when it is judged neces- sary for their reformation. This establishment is under the directionand government ofthe Regente de la Audiencia, assist- ed by the two senior criminal Judges, with tin; Alcayde and his attendants. One of these Judges conducted me through the several apartments, and from him I received my infor- mation. Among other particulars, he told me that they had then under discipline a ladv of fashion, accused of drunken- ness, and being imprudent in her conduct. As she was a widew, the party accusing was her brother in law, the Mar- quis of ." ' LE MELANGE.— Matthew Milton, of Pitt's Head Mews, Park Lane, a horse desler, was last week convicted at Bow Street, in the penalty of £ 50 and s£ I0costs, for receiving and harbouringa greyhound, the property of the Earl of Yar- mouth, knowing it to have been stolen.— A piece of intelli- gence highly important to all friends and admirers of anti- quity, is announced in letters from Rome, namely, the dis- covery of an ancient building in the neighbourhood of Pales- trina; a broad marble staircase descending 60 steps, has been already uncovered, and a place or room, in which several statues are still standing upright in their niches. The farther results of this discovery are eagerly expected.— A singular enough statement is given in an article from Vienna, in rela- tion to the papers seized on an English physician at Haim- bourg, the residence of Madame Murat. They say, that a correspondence between this woman and the Princess of Wales was detected ; and that the Doctor had been entrusted by the former with a :! arge sum of monev. It is furthet in- sinuated, that he was a kind of political a^ ent; but this seems to be mere suspicion, resting on a verv slight basis of proba- bility.— The Ex- King of Sweden has set out on his pilgrimage to the Holy Land. If the King of Sp. aiii-\ v; t$ to take it into his bead to follow the example, it would do neither him nor his subjects any harm, especially if he forgot to return.-— Circular orders have been issued from the Treasury, for dis- charging all supernumeraries in the publicioffices.— Sir. Cob- bet, finding a dearth of political squ ibbling, has thrown down the gauntlet on the subject of potatoes, which he calls" a worse than useless root;" he attacks them with such fury, that the poor murphies have not a word to say for themselves ; it is well for Mr. C. that he does not live in Ireland.— Bettertoft. the performer, advertises for a few apprentices for the stage ! Quere, at what age are they to be considered as journeymen? Doutbiess, many prudent parents will put their children under Mr. B's care.— Madame Letitia Buonaparte, at Rome, lately met the carriage of his Holiness the Pope; she immediately stopped her carriage, and getting out, fell upon her marrow bones before the old gentleman, who was obliged to bestow oil her his benediction: his Holiness was thus completely tricked out of a blessing.— Sir. Salomon, the celebrated violin player, died on Saturday se'nnight, in consequence of a dropsy in- duced by a fall from his horse last summer.— The Duke of ; Richmond has been restored to the Dukedom of D'Aubigny of which he was deprived by Buonaparte.—- The Judges have made an order, that all judicial proceedings brought before them, are to be written and not printed.— Great numbers of - Buonapartists are leaving France for America; they will be a great addition to that country!— Neither Drurv Lane, nor Covent Garden Theatre, has given a benefit in aid of the Waterloo Subssfiption.— The Duchess of Cumberland is re- presented to be in a family way.— A few bones only have been collected of the German and Frenchman who were missed at the late fire, in Well Street, London. The body of the Irishman has been found, though in such a shockingly burnt and putrified state, that it was with difficulty recog- nised.— A woman at Plymouth, a few days ago, lodged an in- formation against her husband, Edward Baylis, as a deserter, twelve years ago, from the Coldstream Guards: the poor fellow is now in prison, and his feeling helpmate is wonder- fully indignant at having the reward withheld from her. WELLINGTON.— Among other things bearing this glorious name, are knockers to doors ; at the top of them is a hand grasping the Marshal's staff, from which hangs a wreath of laurel; the head of a British lion at the bottom of the wreath beats ( when the knocker is used) a Freneh eagle ! The Earl of Galloway has settled with his tenants, that in future their rents shall be regulated by the price of corn.— By this arrangement his Lordship will receive a rental according to the variable value of the produce of the land, and the farmer will enjoy the fair profit arising from the cultivation of it. E. J. Littleton, Esq. M. P. for the countv of Stafford, on Tuesday se'nnight, at the Littleton Arms, Peukridge, made a deduction in the rents of his immense estates, by which ,£ 15. per cent, was taken off the shoulders of his tenantry. On Sunday morning, a serious and distressing accident oc- curred at Woodlands, near Doncaster. As Lord Athenry, son of Mrs. Waterloo, was walking in the plantations near the house, he unfortunately 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 although severely wounded, his Lordship is in a fair way of recovery. A person is now travelling in different parts of Yorkshire, under a pretence of selling smuggled spirits. He has two gallon bottles, which are filled to the neck with water, upon which he puts some melted tallow, which forms a strong crust upon the water, and in the neck of the bottle he puts half a gill of strong spirits. He has a short taster to let people taste it. He has been at Pontefract, and succeeded in duping se- veral persons there, who never suspected the fraud until they had emptied the bottles. He decamped on Sunday morning, leaving his lodgings and reckoning to pay, and no doubt has gone into other towns to practice similar frauds. He is a tall man, dressed in a pepper and salt coloured coat and panta- loons. SWINDLER.— A person who calls himself Chell, has for some months past been pursuing a system of extensive fraud in Leeds, having drawn bills and other paper under the firm of Philip Chell and Co. and which have not been honoured. He placed a girl whom he had brought with him at a board- ing school, but who has also absconded, having previously thrown her clothes out of the window, leaving her board un- paid. This swindler is about fifty years of age, five feet eight inches high, wears a black coat and waistcoat, dark coloured breeches and gaiters. Wc hope the public will be on their guard against the future manoeuvres of this unprincipled man, who will doubtless attempt to renew his depredations in some other quarter.—( Leeds Mercury.) Sir Wm. Maxwell, late owner of Filho da Puta ( now the property of Mr. IIouldsworth) has addressed a letter to seve- ral of the editors of the London daily papers, in reprobation of a statement published some weeks ago, tending to disqua- lify the horse, as the winner of the St. Leger Stakes, at Don- caster, from a misrepresentation of his age. Sir William takes the most public mannerof declaring " tiiewhole to be a most scandalous aud unfounded fabrication, emanating, no doubt, from some persons devoid of principle or truth, wishing either to gain time, or altogether to avoid payment of their losses." To corroborate Sir William's refutation, he subjoins a certificate from Mr. Blurland, the breeder. X'ilho cip. Puta is now at Newmarket. PEDESTHIANISM.— In the present rage for walking, the fol- lowing instances of extraordinary performances in that line, may not prove unacceptable to our readers: Among the ancients, the following are the most singular. Philippides, who was sent by the Athenians to implore the assistance of the Spartans in the Persian war, in the space of two days ran 170 Roman miles. Euchides was sent from Athens, to get some of the holy fire from Delphos; he went and returned the same day, which is 135 Roman miles. Henry V. King of England, was so swift in running, that he, with two of his Lords, without bow or other engine, would take a wild buck or doe in a large park. There were a sort of footmen, called the Piechi, who at- tended upon the Turkish Emperors, and were occasionallydis. patched with orders and expresses. They ran so admirably swift, that with a little pole- axe, and a phial of sweet waters ill their hands, they have gone from Constantinople to Adriano- ple in a day and' a night, which is about 160 Roman miles. And among the moderns, the following are particularly worthy of recording. On the 4th of January, 1759, George Guest, of Birmingham, who had laid a wager that he walked 1000 miles in 28 days, set out on his journey, and finished it with great ease. It seemed as if he had lain by for bets, for in the two last days he had 106 miles to walk, hut walked them with so little fatigue to himself, that, to shew his agility, he came the last six miles within the hour, though he had full six hours to do it in. Also in July 1765, a young woman went from Blencogeto within two or three miles of Newcastle, in one day, being 72 miles. But these feats, however extraordinary they may appear in themselves, are by no means to be compared to the very sur- prising performance of Mr. Foster Powell, who went on foot from London to York, and back again, in six days, for a wager of 100 guineas. The particulars of this journey, as authenticated by Mr, Powell, are as follow: On Monday, Nov. 29, 1773, he set out from Hicks'* Hall about 20 minutes past twelve in the morning, and got to Stamford about nine o'clock in the evening of that day. Number of miles the first day, 88. On Tuesday he set out from Stamford about five in the morning, and reached Don- caster by 12 at night, 72. On Wednesday morning he left Doncaster about five o'clock, and arrived'at York at two in the afternoon, 57. The last 17 miles of this stage he went in less than two hours, and for the last thret miles several per- sons attempted to keep pace with him, but in vain. At York, he delivered a letter to Mr. Clarke, a watch- makir, and then went to the Golden Anchor, where he took a Utile refresh, ment, and then went to bed for an hour and a half; after which, at half past five, he set out on his return, having previously- disguised himself, to avoid being incommoded by the crowd that waited to see him. At ten o'clock that night he reached Ferrybridge, 22. On Thursday morning at five, he set off from Ferry, and got to Grantham about 12 at night, 65. On Friday he set out from Grantham about six in the morning, aud got to the Cock at Eaton by eleven at night, 53. Ou Saturday morning, at four, he began his last day's journey, and at half an hour past six in the evening he arrived at Hick's Hall, 5.5. Number of miles in the whole, 59- 1. To the above maybe added the extraordinary performance of a person named Williamson, a bricklayer, of Nottingham, who, in the recollection of many of our readers, for a trifling- wager, went on foot from hence to Grantham .( a distance of 25 miles) where he laid one thousand bricks, in a workman- like manner, and returned the same day. This task he con- tinued on six successive days, during which period he went over 300 miles of ground, and laid six thousand bricks, as a part of the wall of a building-, in a complete manner!!!

On Wednesday, at the Congregation in the Senate House, the Rev. Bridges Harvey, M. A. of Jesus college, presented to the universitv a very valuable marble, with a long Greek inscription, to be added to the collection of Greek marbles in the vestibule of the Public Library. It was found about the middle of the last century between Smyrna and Eplamis, at a village called SegyeeqUe,' and brought to England by Cap- tain Thomas Morley.— The inscription sets fortii that it was erected in honour of Crato, a Musician, by the Society of Grecian Tragedians and Comedians; who are called " Artists of Bacchus in Ionia and the Hellespont." Some account of this inscription was published in an Appendix to the Oxford Marbles; but its evident reference to the Greek Theatre, and the important evidence it affords as to the proper applica-, tion of the name Hellespont, has never been noticed.— Ti » e- date of it corresponds with the year 149, before the Chris- tian era.
