FROM TI1E LONDON GAZETTE, Saturday, January 27. '[ This Gazette notifies lliat tlie Wince Re- gent has been pleased upon the recommenda- tion of tlie Duke of Wellington, to appoint the following Officersto be Companions of the Military Orderof the Rath, for their services on the 16i. li awl 18th of June last, viz. Lieut. Colonel Huron Tripp, ofthe 60th Regiment; Major the Hon. George Dawson, 1st Dragoon Guards;— also announces the appointment of Jarties Allan Patk, Esq. of Lincoln's Inn, to be one < of the Judges of the Court of Common Pleas, vice, Sir Alan Ohambre, resigned;— also the appointment of Major- General Wm.

S. to be one of the Deputy- Clerks of- the King's Closet:— also the Hon. H. Caul- field, returned ta Parliament for the county of Armagh, in the room of William Biownlow, lisq, deceased.] Paris Papers of Friday last have been re- ceived. The intelligence they convey, is, as usual, destitute of interest; aud how can it be otherwise with a shackled press. Only one side of the state of things is presented to us, and that is burnished up with the greatest care, in older l « answer the views of the Go* veinmc- ut. The other side is either totally concealed, or sodistoited, that we should re- main in ihe grossest ignorance, had we no other channel of information, respecting the feelings and designs of the party opposed to the Court. How much a country is to be pi- tied, where the Rulers pronounce even a mo- derate share of freedom to be inconsistent with public tranquillity ! But those Rulers, who employ this language, are hypocrites; and they mean their own perverse pretensions; and not" the interests of tiit public, " hen they say that rational freedom is injurious V e hope, however, that this mode of governing men will find no advocates iu this country ; or ll there should be persons so bise as to forget their character of Englishmen, and to become Supporters of at binary rule, vjecherish, with confidence, the hope, that the poison of their doctrines will find an antidote in public scorn. Under weak Governments change is one ol the great remedies applied to every purpose.— Thatof France unfortunately distinguishes itself by this fluctuating character ; and this is also one ofthe great lines of difference - between it aud more enlightened Governments. After the second restoration, a paper was brought out, to be employed exclusively in recording public acts, and the MoniteUr ceased to be tile Official Journal. Pile former, which was called the Gazette t'jjicielle, is now to be sup- pressed, and the Moniteur is to be restored to its old rank of being the oflicial organ ot' the Government. This change, it may be said, is of very trifling import; so it is intrinsically ; but when we connect it with the general cha- racter ol the French administration, we shall lint! that it forms part of that system of versa- tility, which marks the public administration. However, there is one steady movement amidst all this fluctuation, anil that is a retrogade one towards ihe ancient abuses of the monarchy. It is only where the interests of the great body of the people are concerned, that a versatile character is stamped upon the councils of the country. This is also the portentous sign in the present history of France, because it shews the brittle and loose foundation upon which tiie sys'em of government is built, or rather building. It appears from the Moniteur, that the whole ofthe British Army will quit Paris and its environs by the 1st of February. This report oi' the intended evacuation of that city has been st. often mentioned, and as often dis- proved, that we must suspend our belief in this instance', lill it is corroborated by abso- lute matter of fact. Madame I. avalelte, upon giving bail, has been provisionally set at liberty. DISTRIBUTION of MONEY to the FOR- CES which SERVED in PORTUGAL, SPAIN, and FRANCE. NOTICE.

' I'he remaining corps of infantry, from the 51st regiment of foot to the 7th line battalion King's German Legion, between the 1st and 30ih April, 1816, and all individuals belonging to the depart- ments and corps before mentioned, or their assigns or representatives who may not have had it in their power to receive the shaies lo which they are entitled, within the periods before specified, are to apply for the same be- tween the 1st and 30th of May nest; after which date uo further payments will be made by the distributing Agent, as all unclaimed shares and balance must then be paid into Chelsea Hospital; and it is thought right to apprize all parties concerned, that from the extent and complication of the distribution, a period of one or two months may probably elapse before the books can be so made up as to enable the Treasurer of Chelsea Hospital lo commence any payments of unclaimed ba- lances.

[ Written after his Scconil Abdication, and on hear- ing that he hud surrendered to Copt. Muitlund, of the Bellerop/ ion ] The bloody drama of Europe is concluded, and the great Tragedian, who for twenty years has made the earth his theatre, and set tbe world in tears, has left the stage for ever! He lifted the curtain with his sword, and filled the scenes with slaughter. His part was invented by himself, and was ter- ribly unique. Never was there so ambitious, so restless a spirit— never so daring, so for- tunate a soldier. His aim was universal do- minion, and he gazed at it ste adfastly with the eye ofthe eagle, and the appetite of the vulture. He combined within himself all the ele- ments of terror, nerve, malice, and intel- lect ; a heart that never melted— a hand that never trembled— a mind that never wa- vered from its purpose. The greatness ofhis plans defied speculation, aud the rapidity of their execution outstripped prophecy.— Civilized nation were tin victims of his arts — and the savage could not withstand his . warfare. Sceptres crumbled in his grasp, anil liberty withered in his presence. The Almighty appeared to have entrusted to him the destinies of the globe, and he used them to destroy. lie shrouded the sun with the clouds of battle, and unveiled thenightwith its fires. Ilia march reversed the course of nature— the flowers ofthe spring perished— the fruits of autumn fell— for his track was cold, and cheerless, and desolate, like the withering, wintry Mast* fttMd ail thepfty^ steal, moral, and political changes which he produced, he was still the saute. Always ambitious, always inexorable— no conquests satisfied— no compassion assuaged— no re- morse deterred— no dangers alarmed him. Like the barbarians, he conquered Italy, and rolling back to its source the deluge that overwhelmed Rome, he proved himself the Attila of the South. With Hannibal, he crossed the Alps in triumph— Africa beheld in him a second Scipio-— and, standing on the Pyramids of Egypt, he looked down on the fame of Alexander. He fought the Scy- thian in his cave, and the uncouquereil Arab fled before him. He won, aud divided, and ruled, tlearly all of modern Europe. It be- come a large French province, where foreign Kings still reigned by courtesy, or mourned in chains. The Roman Pontiff was his pri- soner, and he claimed dominion over the altar ivith the God of Hosts. Even his name inspired universal terror, and the obscurity of his designs rendered him awfully myste- rious, The navy of Great Britain watched him with the eyes of Argus, and her coast was lined with soldiers who slept on their arms.— He made war before he declared it ; and peace was with him a signal for hostili- ties. His friends were the first whom he as- sailed, and his allies lie selected to plunder. There was a singular opposition between I'is alledged motives and his conduct. Hewouldn have enslaved the land to make the oceati^ free, and he wanted only power to enslave both. If he was arrogant, his unparralleled successes must excuse him. Who could endure the giddiness of such a mountain ele- vation ? Who that amid the slaughter of millions had escaped unhurt would not sup- pose, like Achilles, that a deity had lent him armour ? Who that had risen from such obscurity, overcame such mighty obstacles, vanquished so many mouarchs, won such ex- tensive empires, and enjoyed so absolute sway ? Who, in the fullness of unequalled power and in the pride of exulting ambition, would not believe himself the favourite of Heaven ? He received the tribute of fear, and love, and admiration. The weight of the chains which he imposed on France was forgotten in their splendour: it was glorious lo follow him, even as a conscript. The arts became servile in his praise; and genius divided with him her immortal honours. For it is mind alone that can triumph over time. Letters only yield permanent renown. This blood- stained soldier adornded his throne with tlie trophies of art, and made Paris the seat of taste as well as of power.— There, the old and new world met and con- versed ; there, Time was seen robbed of his scythe, lingering among beauties, which he could not destroy ; there, the heroes and sages of every age, mingled in splendid alli- ance', and joined in the . march of fame. They will appeal to posterity to mitigate the sen- tence which humanity claims against the tyrant Bonapaite. Awful indeed will be that sentence; but wheti will posterity be a disin- interested tribunal ? When wi'l thelime ar- rive that Europe shall have put off mourning for his crimes ? In what distant recess of futurity will the memory of Moscow sleep >— When will Jena, Geiona, and Austerlitz:— when will Jaffa, Oorunna, and Waterloo, be named without tears of anguish and vows of retribution? Earth Can ntever forget, man can never forget them. f et him live, if he can endure life, divested of his crown— without an army— and almost without a follower. Let him live— he, wdio never spared his friends, if he can withstand the humiliation of owing his life to an enemy. Let him live, and listen to the voice of con- science. He can no longer drown it in " the clamorous report of war." No cuirasse guards his bosom from the arrows of remorse. Now, that the cares of state havte ceased to distract his thoughts, let him reflect on his miserable self; and with the map before him, retrace his bloody career Alas ! his lite ii a picture of ruin, and the light, that displays it, is the funeral torch of nations. It exhibits one mighty sepulchre, crowded with the mangled victims of murderous ambition. Let him reflect on his enormous abuse of power- on his violated faith— and shameless disre- gard of all law and justice. Let him live and repent— let him seek to atone in humility and solitude, for the sins of his political life— an example ofthe catastrophe of the wicked, and the vanity of false greatness. Great he un- questionably was— great m the resources ofa misguided spirit— great in the conception and execution of evil-^- great in mischief, like the pestilence— great in dcs. lation like the whirl- wind.

Roscoe and Co.' s bank at Liverpool, has suspended their payments, owing not to a want of propertv, but the extreme scarcity- of money— discounts are as scarce iu London as at Liverpool.

SI'IU- SG hood: Papers anil letters from Paris of Saturday last have been received.- The disturbances at Lyons at e not noticed in the French Jour- nals. They wove excited by Bonapartists,/ Federalists, and Other Jacobins, and had for tiidr_ objeet; tbe destruction of the Royal- ists. Tliey wtfe preceded by a disbanded Officer of tbe notorious army of the Loire, carrying a bust of Bonaparte's son, as King of Rome, and vociferating seditious cries. Their numbers must have been formidable, as the c't/ ttmia-. vler of Lyons found it neces- sary to assemble the National Guard, and all the ot . er troops of which he had the dis- posal, to disperse, the insurgents. Tran- quillity was not, however restored without bloodshed. There was to be a grand review of 10,000 mtn on Sunday at I he Carousal, consisting . of the Royal Guard of all arms, of whom 3,( 300 are cavalry. On the 11th of next month there is to be another grand review. These military spectacles are probably con- sidered necessary, to awe the seditious and keep the refractory m order, the more so, as all the British troops have been withdrawn from Paris. At five o'clock on . Saturday last, Colonel Mackinnon, commanding the . rear guard, delivered up the heights' of. Montmartre to the French corps. The oc- cupation of the heights by a foreign force has loug been a source of great uneasiness and irritation to the Parisians. - The indictment against Sir Robert Wilson, Captain Hutchinson, and Mr. Bruce, it is said, has been drawn up, and the trial will shortly take, place before the Court of Assize. Ano- ther .. ceouut mentions that fhey will be en- larged on bail, previous to their trial.— Mad. Lavulette, in whom the public take so lively an interest, resides iii her house, Rue de (. Ire- lielle, St. Germain. The National Guards of Caen have been disbanded, an I a new organization ordered, it is probable the measure has been deemed prudent aud necessity, in consequence of sy tion among the officer., and men. Among those recently arrested in various parts of Fraiice, are several disloyal persons holding places under the French Government.

SPECIFIC REMEDY FOR Coughs, Colds, Hoarseness, Asthma, difficulty of breathing, stuffins arid sareness of the Stomach, Hooping Cough, Measles. Consumption, and dis- order* of the Lungs. fTUJK virtues of Liquorice are too well known jj[ to require a fly comment by the Proprietor; suffice it lo say, this Essence of Liquorice is divest- ed of ils grosser substance; and contains only the fine essential parts of Ihe Root, which, united with other vegetable Balsams, produces, perhaps, the most powerful pectoral hitherto invented. Recent Coughs, although attended with hoarse- ness and sore throat, if taken in time, will be speed- ily removed with a few doses of the Essence. In Asthma aud difficulty of breathing, the Es- sence may be taken frequently with success, keep- ing the body warm and open. If the Essence is taken ill the early stage of a consumption, much benefit uiay be expected from a continuance of it. The Hooping Cough will generally be relieved by taking the Essence, and a few dose* greatly benefit the Measles, by causing an easy expectoration. From among the numerous cases of persons who have been relieved by these Congh Drops, the fol- lowing recent cure is offered to the notice of the public :— Mr. Benjamin I Ionic, carpenter, Bridgesstrcet, Northampton, was troubled with a most suffocating Cough, with which he was attacked to so violent a degree as frequently to cough from nine o'clock at night, until lour in Ihe morning, without ceas- ing; by taking only oi'fc- 2S. yd. bottle of the Es- sence of Liquorice, lie was completely cured, add will testify the same to any one.

On Tuesday lust James Cullen; of Loughbo- rough, Victualler, was convicted hefoie the Rev. Dr. Hardy, and paid : IIP penalty often shillings to the poor, and; five shillings costs, for suffering prisons on Saturday night last to remain Drink- ing and Tippling in his Victualling House, without1 law till excuse. At the same time two Young Men were convicted before the same Magistrate, and paid the penalty of five shillings each, for being drunk ou Saturday night last. Suicide.— A few days since, William Limbert, of Noruianfoii- oti- Soar, near Loughborough, cut his throat with a razor, surd died instantly. The unfortunate man was about, sixty years of age, and for some time had been iii the habit of travelling up and down the country to sell stockings, worst ed. eVc. iii the manner of what istechnieally term- ed a bag hosier. A while ago he became lame upon one of his hands, and was thence disabled fiorii pursing iiis customary avocation, which caus- ed him to frequently lament that he should shortly be reduced to poverty, and sent to the parish vvoikhouse ; further observing to his wife that she might go there, but he never would. In vain did the poor woman endeavour to divert his mind from these desponding ideas— he could not be prevailed npon'to give them up. After breakfasting together on tiie morning of the fatal catastrophe, she had occasion to go tt a shop in the village to purchase some Mind! articles, and upon relating therein the state of her husband's mind, was advised to hurry home as soon as possible. No sooner had she en- tered the- house, than With his coat off, and shirt neck unbuttoned, he pushed her aside, ran up stairs,, exclaiifiiiig, ' Lord have mercy upon me ! " and committed the deed" by literally almost half- dividing his. heatl from his body. The Shrewsbury Mail.— A paragraph having ap- peared in several London papers, asserting that the accident which happened to this couch, oil Thursday se'iininght, arose from the neglect of the coachman, in not having the wheel locked, when descending the hill near High Wycombe; and that two passengers and the coachman were, in consequence so greatly injured, that they re- main confined with little hopes of life, at a public house in the neighbourhood : we are desired, ill justification of the driver and ofthe proprietors of the said coach, who have in every instance made the safety and convenience of the passengers liitir particular care, to state that the accident entirely arose from the restirenes of the horses, the road being so heavy that even in coming dawn the hill the horses were obliged to drav upon the collar; and from the best information that can be obtain- ed it appears that one erf the passengers checked the reins, and before the coachman could obtain the command, the horses turned, and the accident happened ; we have also the satisfaction ot saying, that only one passenger was hint so much us to be confined to his room; the coachman, who is a Weill known cautious driver, and has been engaged for several years in that capacity, was also materially injured.'—- The above « e believe to be a correct statement ot the accident, which in this instance f- ppears to have beeimiueii liiaggeratcd. On Thursday se'nnlghr, at the Public Office, Birmingham, John Shepherd, the driver of the Lichfield Accommodation Coach, was convicted on the Stage C'nach Ac*, before William Hamper, Esq.. iu the full penalty of £ 40, and dusts, for furiously driving his coach, on Tuesday se'nnight. down Gravelly Hill, in Erdiugton, near Birming- ham, whereby the safety of the passengers was gi'e'at I y endangered. The neighbourhood of Tipton was on Monday Jan 22, Manned bv the collecting together of se- veral hundreds of Colliers. About two o'clock the military quartered in Wolverhampton were sent for, and a troop of the 9th Light Dragoons, and a detachment ol the Berkshire Militia, accom- panied by the Rev. A. H. linden, immediately proceeded to the spot, where thev were met by the Rev. D. Lewis, another Magistrate, with « military force from Birmingham. The Colliers hurl nut committed tiny acts of violence, and they all not only professed,- but evinced n disposition to act in tl. e most orderly manner, by dispersing niter being reasoned with and desired to do so.— The motive for their collecting, they said, was to resist a further drop of sixpence per day in their wages, by their charter masrers. A satisfactory arrangement was made w ith them, and they have returned to their employment. We regret to add, that the vicinity of Dudley lias ulsp, during the last week, been disturbed by illegal and riotous assemblages of colliers, who have in several instances proceeded to actsof'atro- ciou « and unprovoked violence.— An assault of the most outrageous nature was on Friday made, bv tt party of these misguided men, upon the peTson ot a'respectable gentleman in the neighbourhood of that to » n. A large party of colliers, armed with sticks and bludgeons, passed through Dudley on Friday evening, on their way towards Tiptoii. I hey halted opposite the town hall, where having given - e vera I shouts of defiance, accompanied bv signs of resistance should " liev be interrupted", they proceeded forward. Military aid reached on the following- morning ( Saturday) from Coventry : and eve hope, under the able guidance of the ma- gistracy, they will effectually intimidate them from further nets of excess. It WHS discovered on the death of Mr. Evtoii, the lute Shrewsbury Banker, that he had in hand a considerable balance in - favour of Government, for which extents are now issued, to the prejudice of the other creditors, who have been duped into mi improper confidence, by a false appearance of wealth, from the use ofthe public monies. These cases are frequently occurring, to the astonishment ot every one, at a time when the urgent wants of the State are brought forwards ns a plea for ad- ditional sacrifices on the part ofthe pu- blic. It is not extraordinary that a little of that promptitude and accuracy' put in force, as'vve- all le- el, for the r- collection ol the revenue, cannot be applied to the Receivers? We have Boards of Commissioners, Commissioners General, Special, and Assi- tnnt- Inspcctors altd Assessors without ' number ; then we have the Secretaries with their Deputies, who are to net by the advice and with-' the jud of Solici- tors, who also have their Deputies and Managing Clerks. Can none ot' these Gentlemen be spared to look after the Receivers ofthe Taxes? Why docs the machine stop precisely at this point ?— The velocity and precision of its movements nie admirable till it arrives t. t the deposit of the public monies, and then, as if operated upon bv a t. ilis- maiiic charm, we come to a dead stop ! What language can be strong enough to describe the in- justice of per. niting Ihe public monies to remain for years in the possession of private individuals, not merely uncalled for, but apparently unknown, rill such individuals may chance to die, or stop payment; particularly when it is to be'recollected such tnoiiies must frequently be extorted from the poor contributors, by an Exchequer process, agitinst which no misfortune, however calamitous, can even he listened to bv way of appeal. We Can re- collect too, its in the Elthatn ease, that these taxes i'i some instanoesare to be paid more than once, the Collector there hat ing failed with a balance of 8 years uncalled for,- and the parishioners being re- quired tai pay again. Li t us hope this subject will be brought before Parliament witliout loss ol time. An investigation in Parliament is highly ne- cessary, for our readers may tie assured, that it these matters were better regulated there need be no continuation of the war charges. We have now to wind up the expellee* of the War, that is, to pay the reckoning ; or, according to a more fami- liar phrase, to st' 3 what the. damage is, and we must examine the items most scrupulously. It is something more than a century since Lot- teries were first established in this country, and nearly Coeval with it is the establishment of the House of HAZARC, BURKE, and CO. They rtinv for the first time appear as Contractors, and in that character respectfully solicit the support ofa generous Public. They art warranted in saying, that their Scheme has given the most general sa- tisfaction; arid to meet the enCreased demand, they have sent a fresh supply of Shares to Mr. li. S. Chamberlain, Leicester, and till their other Agents in the county. jr. SCRUTATOR. Extract' Ma. from the Leicester Chrin'.' cle-, ' January 27/ h, 18! < 5.

If a Rev enue Offi- cer can come with bis " Extent in aid" against Ins debtor at any time he pleases, and take possession ofthe whole of his property, setting aside notes, bonds, mortgages, ant! every other kind of securi- ty— if lie can dispossess the purchaser of hinds or houses, ( however good the title,) because they have been purchased of fiis debtor— if he can tints unhinge coufirienbe and credit, and introduce con - fusion, distress, and dismay — reduce from Comfort to want, and from affluence to poverty, it surely is a subject which cail » for serious and immediate attention. If no alteration can be obtained, if this latitudenarian construction'/ ntasf be continued, would it not be nn act of charity and humanity to publish it for WARNING ami CAUTION in every newspaper, ifi every town, wild in every village from one end of the Kingdom to the other.

The regular battle, it is well kiiown, commenc- ed by the almost simultaneous advance ( and we distinctly saw their course) of three entire corps d'urmee on the right, left, and centre of the British line. The attack on the right hnd for its first ob- ject the carrying of the post of Hougomont, the key of the position; in possession of which, the French could have turned the British right. That column had the shortest way to move; and, under Ring Jerome, it was there the cannon and mus- ketry first began. As admitted by " The Relation," fresh reinforcements were sent to this scene ofcat- nage lepeatedly to no purpose. The utmost suc- cess of probably 30,000 men, was obliging the light companies of the 1st, 2d, and 3d foot guards, under the command of Lord Saltoun, to take re- fuge within the post, instead of defending the small wood 011 the outside of it. The post itself was never occupied for a moment. I he gunrifs kept it, in spite of grape, and musketry, and balls, and shells, and flames, till t, hey issued from it victori- ous in the hour of vengeance. The corps d'urmee destined for the left ( the 6th) oou arrived at the first attack in that quarter about the centre of ihe British left wmg; but were calm- ly received and repulsed, by the admirably served artillery , uii( i by the 4- 2d, 79tb, and O'id Highland- eis, supported, it is believed, by the 1st and 28th regiments, under the lamented Sir Thomas Pic- toil. ' I he whole slope was in our view. Nothing could be more tremendous than the mode of at tuck ; it was always headed by artillery, which dis- charged showers of iron grape shot, each bullet larger than .1 walnut. Heading these columns were the iron- cased cuirassiers, in as complete mail, breast and back, as in the days of that de- fensive urtnour; upon w hich the musket halls were heard to ring as they glanced off without injuring or even stunning - the wearer. These men at arms had immense infantry columns of support at their backs. A stunted hedge bounded each side of a narrow cross ryad, which ran along the whole of the British left wing, joining the great road near the Duke ot Wellington's tree, already mentioned. In the hedge there was a number of gaps, which had been made to serve as a kind of einbinzures for the line of the British cannon » f the lift wing; and a trifi- ing bank, only here and there two or three feet high, .011 which the hedge grew, and in which apertures for the guns were cut where necessary, was the only- thing resembling shelter which any portion of our artillery enjoyed. When the cannon and infantry had staggered the masses of the enemy, and somewhat calmed their fury; round the extremity ofthe cross road, luli 011 the llank of the foe,— horses in perfect condition, men 111 stea dy determination,— wheeled, like a whirlwind, the Royals, Greys, and Enniskillins— England, Scotland, and Ireland— in high rivalry and irresistible union. In vain, for the second time, the iron- cases,— the cuirassiers— were " bou- lemrsis et culbul'es,* " ( iu the words of " The Re- lation,") their cannon was deserted and taken; ami the columns of infantry were thrown into such confusion, that they had just time to get beyond the range of the prudent pursuit of their adversa- ries, whose warfare yet was defensive. The dra- goons and infantry, with their captured cannon and eagles, calmly returned to their place in position, to await the next advance of the enemy . f If our present ground hud the well fought round now faintlv described in full view; so had Napo- leon's station, about a mile along the road from where we stood. " These English light admirab- ly," said he to Soult; " but tliev must give way." " No, Sire, they prefer being cut to pieces," was the answer of one who knew something of them — T he grey horses especially si ruck liiin, and he often repeated, e/ uelles supei lies troupes.' The centre attack was most of this time in full activity, and overwhelming efforts were making to gain tlie farm house of I, a Haye Sainte, advanced two or three hundred yards from the British posi- tion. Here fortune bestowed one melancholy smile 011 Napoleon's arms. But it neutralised a large force; and uever for a moment shook the British centre. The three attacks now described, we were told migiit serve as a fair specimen of the reiterated war during the entire day. From eleven in the morning till seven at night. It consisted of a suc- cession of such attacks, with unabated fury, and increasing force; and often with a boldness and deadly effect, which perplexed our soldiers, and put their matchless firmness to the utmost trial.— Line was with admirable alacrity formed for a greater breadth of fire than the squares afforded, immediately on seeing the blade plates of the cui- rasses, when masses of French infantry approached with a heavy fire of musketry. They did " go through their work," as Napolecn often muttered, unlike any troops he had ever seen. Such were the deadly visits of the cannon and cavalry, that, as I have repeatedly been assured by officers with whom I have conversed, these interludes of infan- try- battle were, a kind of refreshment, after their toil with the other arms! They never took the trouble to look at the numbers; they felt as if boys bad attacked them, merely to keep them in wind; and invariably routed them by a very few steps of a run in advance with pointed bayonets. The Duke, in visiting diffetent points, was often received with a shout of impatience to be led on. The gallant 95tli were very tired of the iron cases, and iron grape shot. An immense body of French infantry happened to approach that noble regiment at oue time when Lord Wellington was paying them 11 visit; " Let us at ' em, my Lord," " let us down upon ' em," quite regardless of their numbers.—- " Not yet," replied the Chief, " not yet, my brave men, but you shall have at them soon; firm a little longer; we must not be beat; what would tliey say 111 England?'' From our vantage ground, we had gained a very satisfactory general idea of the field, and moved down to the farm house of La Haye Sainte, to ex- amine the state in which the conflict had left that post, before we made a circuit for a more minute inspection of the field. Much of the wreck of the battle lav between the Duke of Wellington's sta- tion, and the farm house, which manifested the hazard to which be had been exposed. The" lie- lotion" admits the trecessity of sending La II aye Sainte " ( U nouvellesforces," before it was taken, by the slaughter of almost all its brave defenders. Il is just an ordinary farm house, aud court of offices.— The house forms one side of a square, and the offices the other thre'e; the court yard collecting the manure in the middle, and shelter- ing the cattle. The side opposite to the house is a long building for cows; the passage being sepa- rate d from the cows'stnlls by a parapet about 4 feet high. At each end ofthe passage is a large door or gate, both of which were literally riddled with musket bails, fired from within, and from without, as could easily be distinguished from the kind of hole the ball bad made. The bodies, after the action, were heaped up in the cow stalls, as high as the parapet. The whole farm house, yard, and offices might have atVorded room for 1000 or 1500 men lo act. They hnd made holes for intis- ketiy all around the place; and many a hole had been made for them by the enemy. The whole presented a scene of shattered ruin, which could not be looked upon without a degree of in- terest amounting to terror. But it stood a noble monument of the determined valour of our German brethren iu arms. Having succeeded in opening the shattered door which led out to the fields to the west, we siiiv several women still engaged in the lately most lu- crative occupation of gleaning up any thing which they could sell to strangers. The same persons had" very probably been active in stripping anil plundering the slain, before they were buried. We asked them where they were during the ac- tion :— Toutesilans le hois,"—( all in the wood)— Did the} hear the noise?— the answer was a shrug and look of dreadful te collection. The'y seemed to lie finding very little worth lifting. We were ourselves at the moment more fortunate, for lying * There is no translating the se expressive words when describing the effec t of a charge of cavalry. Boyer's dictionary renders the first lo turn lopsy turry, and the second lo throw lu'els ova• head. f A brief commentaiy 011 a lather sudden change of politics in one of the Fl ench cuirassiers, when 011 the point of being cut down by a soldier of the Grays, was overheard on this occasion. The Frenchman railed out " Vive 1c Roi." " Gude faith, freend," said his pursuer, in purest Scotch, " gif ye cry that, ye shu'dna be here." among some straw we found a French bayonet, evidently marked with blood, which we brought uway with us. We returned to the tree, and directed our steps westward to go along the British line to the right. There was no difficulty iu tracing the line by the gra ves of the brave men, who had fallen where tliey were first posted. The survivors never quit- ted it but to advance. The very ground was ha! lowed ; and it was trade by us with respect aud gratitude; the multitudes below, so lately in- terred, occasioned a very impressive subject ot re- flection. We stood where the interesting Sir William De Lancey had met bis death, when rallying with great spirit and effect a battalion of Hanoverians, who bad got into confusion. He nobly refused to occupy the time of the surgeons w ith his wound, which lie had heard them prunoiice mortal, when they thought liini insensible. He was removed to the village of Waterloo, where he died. This gal- lant young man's early name, and just favour with his great commander excited general and deep in- terest for Iiis fate ; and no where more than in Edin- burgh, where he had been married only a few weeks before. Indeed the instances of heroic death were as nu- merous as they are affecting. Colonel Miller of the first guards requested 11 last sight of the colours under which he bad fought. He kissed tliein fer- vently, and begged they in gilt be waved over him till he expired. The lamented Captain Curson, Lord Scarsdale's son, met his fate w ith almost " military glee." In falling from his horse, lie called out gaily to Lord March, who was riding with him at a gall jp,— " Good bye, dear March." And by one effort more, when his friend had left him for the urgent duty of animating a fore ign corps, in very critical circumstances, he looked up, and cried " Well done, dear March." The nervous idea strongly occurred, of the next day's horrors of such a field as Waterloo. Num- bers ofthe desperately wounded and dying in the midst of the dead, raised their heads, when visitors to the scene Dassed them, to implore water, or 10 beg death at their hands, to end their agonies- Many of the wounded were not removed tiil Wed- nesday, the third day after tiie battle. All was now hushed in the stillness of a long line of graves, the sad consummation which the wound- ed implored. No one, who has not seen it, can imagine how touching it is to see, strewed around their graves, fragments of what the brave men wore or carried when they fell. Among the straw of the trodden dawn corn, which still covered the field, lay caps, shoes, pieces of uniforms, and shirts, tults, cockades, feathers, ornamented horse hair, red and black, aud what most struck us, great quantities of letters, and leaves of books. We were now oil the station of the Prince of Orange, and where he received bis wound. Til- Dutch and Belgians, under bis immediate com- mand, behaved very gallantly. The Prince is said, ill a moment of chivalrous feeling, when app'aud- ing their valour, to have torn the star friiin his breast, and thrown it into their column; adding, that he did not kiio* who best deserved it, and therefore he gave it among them. A very gay regiment of gentlemen light horse volunteers were in the battle of Waterloo, all in- habitants of 11 continental city, which 1 shall not name. An oppoi tunity occurred for them to charge the French cavalry, and an aid du- cainp came to them with an order or request to that effect, from Lord Wellington. Their colonel, in great surprise, objected the enemy's strength, - their cuirasses,— und the consideration, which had unaccountably, lit- said, escaped the commander- ill chief, that bis regiment were ail gentlemen. This diverting res- ponse was carried back to Lord Wellington; who dispatched the messenger again to say, that if the gentlemen would take post upon nil eminence, ( which ne pointed to iu the rear,) they would have an excellent view of the battle; and he would leave the choice of a proper time to charge entirely to their own sagacity and discretion, in which he had the fullest confidence I The colonel actually thanked the aid- du- catnp for this distinguished post of honour, and, followed, by his gallant train with their very high plumes, ( the present great point of continental military foppery,) was out of danger in a moment. A regiment of light dragoons of a very different stamp, ihe 12th, was posted near the Prince of Orange. Their charges were of the most spirited kind; and nothing but the cuirasses enabled the French dragoons to resist them. In the account of so much pure valour, without trick or cover, against so much iron, it is not difficult to decide where ho- nour would award the balance. Many brave men were sacrificed to the iron cases, and taffeta flags which frightened their horses. ( Tube continued.) BANKRUPfS. S. Plumb, Gosport, Southampton, innkeeper R.

Murk- lane, Monday, January 29, 1310. This morning ihe supply of New'Wheats was quite moderate, and there was evidently a greater disposition to buy than we have observed of late, hence there was a general clearance of mealmg qualities, at two or three shillings per quarter ad- vance, and a ready sale for inferior samples, at 2s. per quarter advance— Barley is brisk, and Is per quarter dearer; and fine Malts go off readily at our last quotation.— An advance of Is. per quarter « as asked for Ilog Pease and Tick Beans, on fust opening the samples, and obtained in one or two instances, but to effect further sales the factors found it necessary to revert to our last quotation, at which the supply to- day was readily sold.— Oats were tolerably plentiful last week and this morning, and have experienced no variation lions t our last quoted prices.
