FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. PARIS, June 12.— Didier's execution has taken place. He endeavoured, throughout his interro- gatories and trial, to throw perplexity and dismay into the minds of his Judges and of Government. He stated, that he was but one of twenty- four Commissaries appointed by a great Power to pro- mote the interest of the cause for which he was about to suffer, and which, better conducted by his surviving colleagues, would ultimately prevail. After making this apparent or real confession, which he observed to be not dictated by any desire to court the clemency of the King, which clemency could but little prolong a life already so far advanced, he recommended to his Judges the immediate execution of the sentence awaiting him, lest a short interval elapsing, such a revolution in things might occur as to put him in their place, and them in his. This frank avowal had the effect of suspending for a few days the severity of Government, and of inducing on their part every kind of offer to obtain from him the completion of his revelations of a plan, of which the late events, alarming as they were, would appear to form but an inconsiderable part. The Power alluded to by Didier is con- jectured to he either Austria or Bavaria. It is certain that the military arrangements and general dispositions of those Powers, but particularly the latter, over which Prince Eugene is known to have so decided an influence, are a subject of real un- easiness to the French Court. PARIS, June 13.— We have lately heard some people confound the punishment of deportation with that of banishment, and express an opinion that the former was too mild a punishment for in- citements to revolt and civil war. To remove this mistake, it is sufficient to remind such persons of the enactments of our penal and civil laws relative to deportation. By Art. 8. of the penal code of 1811, condemnation to deportation, as well as that to perpetual forced labour, carries with it civil death. Art. 25. of the civil code determines the effects of that civil death : the convict loses all right to his property, which immediately devolves to his heirs, as if he were naturally dead and in- testate; he can neither inherit nor transmit any property; he is incapable of contracting marriage, and if married, his marriage is dissolved in regard, to all its civil effects; his wife's heirs may re- spectively exercise the rights which his natural death would open to them respectively.— Discite justitiam, moniti. VALENCIENNES, June 1.— The English garri- son, which occupies this city is so numerous, that our barracks not being sufficient to lodge them, it has been necessary to quarter some of them on the inhabitants, to whom this burden is extremely dis- agreeable. However, to alleviate it a little, an English regiment has been moved out of town, and quartered in some adjacent districts. The whole line from the Scheldt to above Conde is covered with English and Hanoverian troops; and on the other side, towards Maubeuge, with Russian troops. There are posts of Cossacks a league from hence.— The inhabitants of our town flattered themselves with deriving considerable profit from the garrison and the Staff, but they have found their hopes in a great measure deceived. Many dealers and artisans of different kinds have arrived here from England, and deprived us of the profits expected from the stay of their troops. CADIZ, May 30.— Private letters from Cadiz state, that several cruizers have made their appear- ance off that coast, whose flag and origin are un- known. They are some of them armed with be- tween twenty and thirty guns, and they have captured several of our merchantmen. We hare reason to fear that they have come either from Carthagena or Buenos Ayres. What astonishes us is, that there are British frigates in our waters, whose interference could easily put an end to these piracies. Our own marine is in such a slate, that the appearance of these wretched Buccaniers in- spires much alarm on our coasts. ITALY, May 26.— An epidemic distemper has broken out at Cagliari. It must be of a serious nature, since the Duke of Genevois, brother to the King of Sardinia, who resided there, has hastily left the island, and embarked for Naples, whence he goes to Turin.

IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT. HOUSE OF LORDS. FRIDAY, JUNE 14. The Bank Balances Bill, the Militia Bill, the Silver Coinage Bill, and the Hydrometer Bill, were brought up from the House of Commons, and read a first time. The Exchequer Bills Bill, the Irish Treasury Bills Bill, and the Clergy Bill, were read a third time and passed. The Life Annuities Bill was read a second time, and committed for Monday, to which day the House ad- journed. TUESDAY, JUNE 18. Mr. Brogden and others, from the Commons, brought up the Soldiers' and Sailors' Trades, Agri- cultural Horses Exemption, and the Charitable Do- nations Bills, which were read the first time. Upon the order for the third reading of the Alien Bill being moved, the Earl of Darnley, Lord' Mosely,' the Duke of Sussex, the Marquis of Lansdowne, and Earl Grey strenuously opposed it, principally: on the ground of its being framed on a manifest departure from the acknowledged principles of the Constitution; which declared every man free the moment he set foot in the country Lord St. Germains, Lords Red' desdale and Sidmouth, and the Earl of Liverpool, contended for the propriety of the Bill, as existing in the Royal Prerogative, which had been acted upon in various reigns, as circumstances appeared to require. Some further arguments being adduced in support of the measure by the Lord Chancellor, which were opposed by. Lord Holland, on a division there being a majority of. 108 to 48 for the third reading, the Bill was accordingly read a third time and passed. HOUSE OF COMMONS. FRIDAY, JUNE 14. The Militia Amendment Bill, the Unclaimed Divi- dends Bill, the Coinage Bill, the Property Tax Col- lection Bill, and the South Sea Trade Bill, were read a third time and passed. The Fraudulent Bankrupts' Bill, the Rape Seed Bill, and the Collieries' Protection Bill, were read a second time. LIBERTY OF THE PRESS Mr. Brougham said, that in consequence of the advanced period of the Session, he did not think it proper to urge forward a measure which went to occasion so fundamental a change in the law of the land, as the Bill for the belter security of the Liberty of the Press. This great advantage would attend its lying over ; namely, that the attention of Honourable Members might be turned to the subject at leisure. Even within the last fortnight great prejudices had been removed from the minds of many Honourable Members, in consequence of their having investigated the merits, of the measure. Convinced as he was, that the more it was considered, the more beneficial would appear the results to be expected from it, and pledg- ing himself to bring the subject again under the con- sideration of the House early in the next Session, he would now move that the Bill be read a second time that day three months.— Ordered. Mr. H. Addington presented a statement of the nature and extent of the disturbances that had re- cently taken place in Ireland, and of the measures which had been adopted by his Majesty's Govern- ment to put them down.— Ordered to be printed. Mr. Brogden brought up the Report of the Com- mittee on the Distillery Acts. The Resolutions were agreed to, and it was ordered that it be an instruction to the Committee on the Scotch Distillery Bill to make provisions in conformity thereto. NAVAL ASYLUM Sir C. Pole, on bringing up the Report of the Com- mittee on the Royal Naval Asylum, took occasion to represent the great expence of this establishment, as compared with the public benefit derived from it; and stated that every boy sent from it into the naval service cost the public above 5001. He could not think the funds of the Asylum were prudently ma- naged were prudently managed, when it appeared, that 400,0001. of the public money had been spent, and with that sum, that only seventy- one boys had been sent to the Navy. Mr. Rose defended the Managers from the charge of extravagance, but observed that be had no objec- tion to the strictest inquiry being made to the applica- tion of this fund. The Report was then ordered to be referred to a Committee of Supply. The Stage Coach Bill was after wards read a second time, and the Property Tax Arrears Bill a third time. MONDAY, JUNE 17. The Husbandry Horse Bill was read a third time, and passed. The Chancery Court Bill was read a second time. The Charitable Donation Bill was read a third time, and passed. The Chancellor of the Exchequer moved, that the Report of the Exchequer Consolidation Bill be taken into further consideration. On the clause that a salary of 3,5001. a year be given to the Vice Treasurer, Mr. Ponson by moved, as an amendment, that 2,0001. a year be inserted instead of 3,5001. The Chancellor of the Exchequer could by no means agree to the amendment, but should take the sense of the House on it. The House then divided, when there were— For the Amendment 100; against it 98 ; Majority 2. This majority was received with loud and reiterated cheers. On the clause that the Vice Treasurer have a Deputy, Mr. Bankes objected to the appointment as unne- cessary. It was merely an appointment to enable I lie Vice Treasurer to have a seat in I hat House. If he wanted assistance, he should pay a Deputy himself, and the public ought not to be put to a heavy expence to create an addition to the Government votes in the House. Paying the Deputy 1,0001. a year from the public purse, would be making the Vice Treasurer * place a mere sinecure. Sir John Newport said, that permanent residence of the Vice Treasurer in Ireland was necessary to make the office effective, and that if he did not reside al- ways in Ireland, the duties of the office could be per- formed, as heretofore, by the Clerks of the Treasury. After a few further words from Lord Castlereagh, Mr. Tierney, Mr. Wynne, and Mr. Brougham, the Bill was ordered to be read a third time on Wed- nesday. In a Committee of Supply the following sums were agreed to, after some conversation between the Chan- cellor of the Exchequer, Mr. Tierney, Mr. Calcraft, and Mr. Brougham:— £ 1,500,000 for the Army Extra ordinaries. ±' 185,000 to balance the Civil List from the 5th January to the 5th July. £ 300,000 for the Extra ordinaries of the Civil List. The sum of 116,4501. was then proposed for remu- neration to officers, petty officers, and others, for captures made within a certain period on the coast of Spain; and, after some observations from Mr. Bankes and the Chancellor of the Exchequer, was agreed to. A Resolution for allowing 150,0001. to Capt. Camp- bell and his officers, for their gallant conduct in May, 1815, when they carried the ships of Murat into Malta, in consequence of the said ships having been restored to the Neapolitan Government, was then agreed to. The Right Hon. Gentleman then proposed the usual grant of 100,0001. for Queen' Annre's bounty,' which, after some observation's from Mr. W. Wynne,' Mr. Barham, and the Chancellor of the Exchequer, was agreed to. Several minor sums were then voted, for various services. Mr. Huskisson brought up a Report from the Com- misioners of Woods and Forests respecting the estate of Claremont; and then gave notice, that on Thurs- day he would move for leave to bring in a Bill for facilitating the arrangements entered into for the purchase of this estate. He did not mean to lay any tax on the public for that purpose, but should propose to apply the revenue of Clown lands to the purpose of settling the estate on the Prince of Saxe- Cobourg for his life. Mr. Bankes asked what Was the amount of the whole sum to be given. Mr. Huskisson answered, 60,0001. The House went into a Committee on the Draw- backs on Beer exported, and agreed to a Resolution to do away the same. INSOLVENT DEBTORS. Sir C. Monck said, We wished to impress on the House the necessity of making some alteration this Session in the Insolvent Act. It was necessary to adopt some temporary measure until next Session, in order to obviate the ill effects of that Act, which had caused great injury in the country. His object was to give a discretionary power to the Commissioner to distinguish between fraudulent debtors and those who were distressed from misfortune. He moved for leave to bring in a Bill to that effect. Sir C. Burrell expressed his regret that the Insol- vent Act was not done away with altogether, on ac- count of the frauds continually committed to the injury of honest tradesmen. Mr. Lockhart thought the Court should have the power to refuse relief to all persons who should appear to have committed frauds of any kind, or for squan- dering their property, Or improvidently contracting debts which they knew at the time they were unable to pay. Leave was then given to bring in the Bill, which • was afterwards brought up and read a first time. TUESDAY, JUNE 18. REFORM IN PARLIAMENT. Mr. Brand presented a Petition from Aberdeen for Parliamentary Reform. He was happy to perceive that the cause was rapidly spreading itself throughout the country. He was, however, sorry to observe the tendency to violent measure which many wished to have recourse to, who supported this great cause.— He had, on a former occasion, expressed his opinion, that annual Parliaments would not be expedient, but he nevertheless considered septennial Parliaments were much too long in their duration. The Marquis of Tavistock reiterated the opinion he had formerly expressed, that reform was absolutely necessary, and that the people would never be satis- fied till they were more fully represented. Mr. Bennet supported the petition. Mr. Curwen had always professed sentiments fa- vourable to reform, and should now take the liberty of saying he should always support it. Mr. Brougham perfectly concurred in the opinions expressed by his Hon. Friends; and however the cause might be opposed by some, and even injured by those who were its supporters, he should always be glad to see such a desirable end satisfactorily com- pleted. Mr. W. Smith had belonged, at one period of his life, to every society which had reform for its object. He had been sorry when the " Friends of the People Society" was abolished. He hoped some day to be able to give a successful vote for the cause within the walls of that House. The Petition was then read, and laid on the Table, as was another from some of the inhabitants of Aber- deen. Mr. Brougham brought up a petition from Glasgow, with the same prayer as the last. The Hon. Member observed, that the people of Scotland considered themselves as little represented, as if that House were filled with thistles instead of Members.— The petition was read and laid on the table. The Bill for increasing the Bank Capital, after some objections from Mr. Grenfell, was read a third time, Mr. Brougham moved for the production of the Algerine Treaty; but on Lord Castlereagh stating the Treaty had not been received, he withdrew his motion; his object being, he said, if those barbarians had made any infraction on the terms stipulated, they might be visited by that measure of retributive jus- tice their atrocities merited. In a Committee on the Spirit Licence Bill, the Chancellor of the Exchequer introduced a clause re- ducing the Licence on Beer to what it was before the passing of the last Acts, and that on Spirits from 0!. . r> s. to- 41. 4s. The Insolvent Debtors' Amendment Bill was read a second time, and the Sugar Bounty Bill a third time. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 19. SLAVE TRADE. Mr. Wilberforce, in stating the obligations we were under to take effectual measures for the abolition of the Slave Trade, entered into a variety of observations to show what was the condition of a great part of the slaves in the West Indies. He described their prin- cipal interests as altogether neglected : they were utter'y destitute of any sort of instruction, either moral or religious; and as to the manner in which they were worked, it was thought necessary, as with in-, ferior animals; to use the stimulus of the whip, and mate them feel, as a signal that their exertions were required.— He could not but feel concern, mixed with surprise, at the late insurrection in Barbadoes being attributed to the Registry Bill; which, if one fact was compared with another, would be found to be im- possible. He would declare that, in his opinion, this Bill constituted a measure that could alone complete the great work of the abolition, and afford security and certainty to all previous measures. It had, how- ever, been resisted on the other side of the water, and by the friends of the colonists here. One of the ar- guments on which they most relied was, that there was no necessity for the measure at all, and that a certain expence should not be incurred to provide against an improbable infraction of law.— The Hon. Gentleman concluded by moving, that there be laid before the House the titles and dates of any Acts the Assembly of Jamaica transmitted for the sanction of Government, by which returns of slaves were directed, staling the time when such returns were made. Mr. N. Palmer was of opinion, that if there was an inflammation in the colonies— if there was any danger of insurrection, the speech of the Hon. Gentleman was neither calculated to allay the one, nor to prevent the other. He submitted that it was the duty of the Legislature to quiet rather than exasperate the alarms which had taken place amongst the colonists, and with this view he should propose an amendment to the following effect:— That an Address be presented to the Prince Regent, praying that he would be pleased to issue instructions to the Governors of our West India islands, that they should proclaim to the slave population his highest displeasure at the late insur- rection, ascribable to the false and mischievous opi- nion that orders had been sent out for their emanci- pation; reminding them that the most prompt mea- sures would be resorted to, to put down the spirit of insubordination; and at the same time that the Go- vernors should recommend to the Colonial Legis- latures to carry into effect every measure that may tend to the moral and religious improvement as well as the comfort of the slaves. .„ Mr. Watson Taylor seconded the amendment. Mr. Barham concurred in what had just fallen from the two Hon. Members who spoke last. If was a fact which could not be denied, that previous to the ar- rival of the Registry Bill, in that island all was order anil tranquillity; but no sooner was that measure heard of, than from that, moment the insurrection began. The poison was now perfectly diffused throughout the colonies; and he would not hesitate to say, that if an insurrection were to break out in Jamaica, the island might be considered as com- pletely gone. On this point he had received very particular information, and he would read to the House a letter he received previous to the insurrec- . tions at Barbadoes, in which it was stated, that con- siderable anxiety existed in consequence of the Re- gistry Bill, which was erroneously supposed to be an act of emancipation. Would any man believe that the masters of the slaves would make this misrepre- sentation, when they knew that their property would be destroyed by this very means ? The misrepresenta- tions were spread by the Methodist preachers them- selves, and, if it were necessary, he would undertake to prove it. The Methodist missionaries had flattered the passions of the negroes, and had thus excited the most dangerous dispositions among them. Indeed they had kept whole districts in a state of alarm ; and when they proceeded to mix poison in the cup of sal- vation, it became the duty of the constituted authori- ties to interpose and check their practices. He con- jured the gentlemen of the institution either to cease to propagate their notions altogether, or to be careful in the investigation of every statement before they gave it to the world. After a long conversation, in which Mr. Barham, Mr. Palmer, Lord Castlereagh, and others partici- pated, concerning the propriety of withdrawing the original motion and substituting the Address, the motion was withdrawn and the Address agreed to nem. con. on an understanding that there would then be no objection to the production of the Papers called for. LONDON. The long- pending claims of Prince Eugene, the Ex- Viceroy of Italy, have been adjusted; and, although he loses his territorial acquisitions, he gains a very considerable yearly revenue. For his late estates in the Papal dominions he obtains, on payment of a small premium and a kind of annual rent, which are to constitute his new right, an hereditary income of between thirty and forty thousand pounds sterling. The Pope is, however, at liberty to exercise the privilege of redemption, on the payment, within a given time, of twenty years purchase money. The Prince's possessions in Lombardy are also to be purchased by Austria; and as he is to receive an adequate equivalent for his estates in the kingdom of Naples, Eugene will derive more substantial benefits from his connec- tion with the Usurper of France than any of the Bonaparte family." We lament to learn that the health of the gallant and revered Blucher is the subject of general regret at Berlin. The savage spirit of piracy is spreading itself to a most licentious and alarming extent, and calls for the immediate and united exertion of the naval powers; unless, indeed, England take upon herself the fulfilment of that honourable office. The atrocities of the Corsairs are noticed in the follow- ing article:— " VENICE, May 27.— We have received most afflicting accounts of the piracies carried on by the Albanian Corsairs in the Archipelago and the Gulph of Salonica. Several Sardinian, Genoese, and even English vessels, have been captured. They pur- sued and came up with two ships with Tuscan colours, which they sunk, in consequence of hav- ing made a bold resistance. Several of the crew perished; others, being wounded, were carried away. We hope that the English flag will not suffer this insult; and that the English cruizers will be re- inforced in such a manner as to inflict exemplary vengeance. It is impossible to make any arrange- ments with such barbarians as these; and Lord Exmouth may in vain attempt to treat with them, as he has done with the Regencies of Africa." Didier was executed at Grenoble in the forenoon of the 10th, without any commotion. At Lyons, however, a fracas took place between a regiment of the Royal Guard and a regiment of Chasseurs of the Pyrenees. They became reconciled by the in- terference of their Officers. The cause of dispute was the misconstruction of a chanson, habitually sung by the Guard. Next day they were embracing each other in the street, and swearing ( a la Fran- coise) eternal fraternity. Letters received on Saturday from France com- plain much of the general stagnation of trade in that country. Considerable, quantities of prohibited goods, consisting chiefly of British manufactures, have been recently seized. The merchants on this side of the Channel are supposed to be the chief sufferers by these seizures. Great efforts are making by the Russian Govern- ment for the promotion of the trade of every part of its immense empire. At Warsaw, a depot of merchandise is to be established, and a great fair is to be held there every year, from the 15th June to the 15th July, to commence next year. The trade of Malta and Gibraltar is chiefly car- ried on by foreign vessels under English colours, to the great detriment of the fair British ship- owner. Letters of the 8th ult. direct from the Havannah, positively contradict the account recently received from that quarter, that the port of the Havannah had been shut. The following is an extract of a letter received at Lloyd's from Genoa, dated the 3d ult:—" We have just learnt that a pirate felucca, with about thirty men, captured, on the 9th ult. under the black flag, a Spanish lateen, of about 30 tons, off the Roman shore; she was from Messina to Leghorn, with a cargo of wine, linseed oil, and almonds. The pirate afterwards took two vessels, one off Porto Manaizeo, under the French flag, and a lateen vessel off St. Stofano, on our western shore. It is stated, that the pirates left their felucca, and went on board of the Spanish lateen Boro, which they captured.— She sails remarkably well." SLAVE TRADE.— Extract of a letter from an Officer on board his Majesty's ship Bann, off Sierra Leone, April 24, 1810.—" I have just time to acquaint you of our arrival here again, with two valuable prizes ; one, of which I have been prize- master, is the Portuguese brig Temerario, of 18 guns and 80 men, that engaged us an hour and a half— great slaughter on both sides; we took her off Widah, in the Bight of Benin ; she was to have taken her cargo in the following day, 8th of March, 600 slaves, but seeing us at daylight on the 5th, cut her cable, and came Out to engage us. I was sent away to Sierra Leone in her ; the Bann stood to the southward, and two days afterwards captured the Portuguese brig St. Antonio, bound to the Brazils, with 508 slaves on board, ( no resistance,) 57 of which died on the passage up here. We sail to- morrow, at daylight, in quest of five armed vessels slaving to leeward, which we have informa- tion of; thence to the West Indies and England. The Slave Trade is carried on still to a great extent. The Colonial vessel, Princess Charlotte, arrived a few days since, with her prize, the French brig, Louis, belonging to Martinique, after an action of several hours. Princess Charlotte, 18 killed and wounded; French brig, 7 killed, 19 wounded.— It would take at least thirty small fast- sailing men of war, or more, to put a stop to this infamous trade." Extract of a letter from Malta, dated 18th May, via Marseilles.—" It is officially communicated by Government, that the Bey of Tunis has lost his head by his own son for liberating the Christian slaves ; and that in the absence of the British fleet, they had equipped their frigates and were deter- mined to take, every thing they met with. It is currently reported that one English vessel has been taken, and the crew murdered." The efforts made in this country and elsewhere, on behalf of the British subjects detained at Cartha- gena, have at length procured the liberation of Wellwood IIyslop, Esq. an eminent merchant of Jamaica. • The Paris papers of Saturday last contain a long account of the proceedings, ceremonies, and re- joicings that are to be observed on the day of the marriage of the Princess Caroline with the Duke of Berry. The Princess was to arrive at Fontaine- bleau on Saturday, and the Duke of Berry; after his interview with her, was to return to Paris, and take up his residence at the Elysee- Bourbon. An Ordinance was published by the Prefect of Police, pointing out the measures that were to be pursued on the return of the King to Paris, and on the occasion of the marriage. The inhabitants of Paris were desired to illuminate the fronts of their houses on the night of the 17th. By the Brazil Packet letters have been received from Rio Janeiro, up to the 27th April. They throw out very strong surmises that the projected marriage between the Spanish Princes and the Portuguese Princesses would not take place.— General Vigodet and Father Cerilo, the marriage Agents of King Ferdinand, are in a kind of dis- grace at the Brazil Court, and seldom go on shore from the vessel in which they had arrived. Letters of the 15th in'st. from Paris mention, that Count Toreno and the other Spanish Liberates, so long detained in Paris, have at length been set at liberty. It is affirmed positively, says a Dutch paper, that the wives of the Crown Prince of Sweden, and of Joseph Bonaparte, who are sisters, and whose maiden name was Clary, who were still in Paris, have received notice to quit that capital, as be- longing to the family of Bonaparte, according to the Law of Amnesty, which banishes the relations of that family for ever from France. A report prevails, that, according to advices from India, appearances of a hostile nature on the part of the Mahrattas had occasioned a new call on the army to prepare for the field. By a decree of the Viceroy of Poland, it is de- termined, for the- promotion of the trade of the kingdom, to establish a depot of merchandize in Warsaw, where there is to be every year a great fair for foreign and home goods, from the 15th of June to the 15th of July; which is to commence in the year 1817. The winter corn in Poland had greatly suffered by the unfavourable weather. The weather proving favourable, the Princess Charlotte rode out on Saturday and Sunday in a chariot, wrapped up in a warm pelisse. Sunday she rode by Kensington and Chelsea about two o'clock, for upwards, of an hour. Her Royal Highness is much better. On Monday she paid the Queen and Princesses an unexpected visit. Sunday Prince Leopold, as soon as he had re- turned from his morning ride with the Princess Charlotte, walked for a long time in the Green Park, without being recognized by the people. Prince George of Denmark was a Member of the Privy Council, before the accession of the Princess Anne to the throne; but Prince Leopold is understood to have- refused that honour, upon the same principle on which he declines a peerage, his unwillingness to interfere in political business. On Monday Ministers received official dispatches from his Excellency Sir James Leith, at Barbadoes, dated the 30th of April, containing the details of the insurrection which had been happily sup- pressed, and with the particulars of which the public are already acquainted. It is now disco- vered, that hut for the premature breaking out of the insurrection on the 14th instead of the 17th ( which it seems was the day fixed on) it would have been much more formidable than it proved to be.— There have been symptoms of insurrection both at Antigua and Guadaloupe, but they were seasonably suppressed, and every thing remained tranquil when the flora sailed. An article in the Hamburgh papers, under the head of Copenhagen, states that the Duke of Wel- lington had concluded an agreement with the French Government, in consequence of which the allied troops in France would be allowed to assist the douaniers in putting down smuggling, which had been carried on with great audacity in the north of France. According to the dispatches received on Tues- day, from Sir. G Cockburn, dated April 21, it appears that Sir Hudson Lowe had arrived at St, Helena, and taken charge of the State Prisoner.— Admiral Malcolm was soon expected to relieve Sir G. Cockburn. The Havannah frigate, Captain Gaven W. Ha- milton, arrived on Saturday at Portsmouth, from St Helena, whence she sailed on the 23d of April with Colonel Mark Wilks, passenger, who had been, preceding the arrival there from England of Lieu- tenant- General Sir Hudson Lowe, two years Go- vernor of that Island. Bonaparte was in good health, but more dissatisfied than ever with his situation. He hassent by the Havannah a string of complaints to the Prince Regent, upon the sub- ject of the personal regulations to which he has been compelled to conform. The Havannah brings an account, that, on the 3d instant, off Fayal, she parted company with the Ferret sloop of war, of 12 guns, Captain James Stirling ( 2), which had left St. Helena on the 27th of March for England ; but, when crossing the Line, she fell in with a ship under Spanish colours, having a cargo of slaves on board, which, on her near approach to speak to her, fired into the Ferret, and hilled two of her men. An action ensued, and, after a running fight of about four hours, at the moment that Captain Stirling was preparing to board, She Struck. The Ferret after- wards proceeded with her to Sierra Leone, where it is expected she will be condemned as a pirate. The Ferret had five men killed and wounded in the action. STATUE OF BONAPARTE.— The brig Provi- nence, Capt. Benson, from Havre- de- Grace bound to London, arrived at Dover, has a very large case on her deck, containing a statue of Bonaparte in white marble. It is about thirteen feet high, and weighs upwards of seven tons. It is consigned to the French Consul in London, and is said to be for the Prince Regent. The weight of this case on the deck is so great, that it was not deemed prudent for the vessel to go round the Foreland, until the weather became more moderate. Mr. Canning has been returned to Parliament as a representative for Liverpool, and on Monday took his seat accordingly. Earl Manvers died at his house in Portman- square, late on Monday night. This most venera- ble and distinguished Nobleman, having quitted the navy at an early period of his life, continued a firm friend to the constitution of his country, al- though he was never afterwards engaged in its public service. His many and amiable qualities in private life, and his talents for society, justly en- deared him to his friends, whilst his various acts of charity and benevolence will make his loss severely felt by those around him. He is succeeded in his title and estates by Charles, the present Earl Manvers, Mr. Grenfell lately stated in the House of Com- mons, that, in addition to the large sums paid by the public to the Bank of England, they receive four thousand pounds per annum towards their " House Expences." ™ e. REFORM IN PARLIAMENT.— Saturday a Meet- ing took place at Freemason's- Hall, to adopt a Declaration, in concurrence with the Hampden Club, in favour of a more general Representation of the People in the Commons House of Parliament. Sir Francis Burdett, M. P. in the Chair.— The Hon. Baronet; after a few prefatory observations, read„ letters from Mr. Fawkes, of Yorkshire, Mr. Leech, and others, regretting their unavoidable absence, and expressing their cordial co- operation in the object of this Meeting. Major Cartwright, in a long speech, maintained the necessity of annual Parliaments, and other Reforms, which he contended were necessary for the salvation of the country ; and at great length opposed the idea of triennial Parliaments, detailing his reasons in favour of annual ones. He further stated, that the Hampden Club had sought a con- ference with some leading Members of Parliament, who, however, a week ago, declared that, their scene of action must be within the. Walls of Par- liament— not without. He concluded by moving that a Declaration ( which he read) be adopted by the Meeting. It contained, in an embodied form, the sentiments of his speech. Mr. Canning, from Warwickshire, the Rev. Mr. Draper, Lord Cochrane, Mr. Gale Jones, Mr. John- son, and Sir Francis Burdett, all spoke in favour of Reform, and the Declaration was unanimously adopted. GRAND HOAX.— In consequence of a report which had been spread through every part of the metropolis, of the celebration of the Anniversary of the battle of Waterloo, by a grand review on Wim- bledon Common, a vast concourse assembled there at an early hour on Tuesday. Coaches, landaus, curricles, and carriages of every description were on the heath, and the number of persons present could not be calculated at less than fifty thousand. Upwards of one hundred booths were erected, which extended nearly a mile, and they were all supplied with the customary accommodations and refresh- ments. When it was ascertained that no review was to place, great disappointment was expressed, and the furze on the heath was, in a few spots, set fire to. This gave rise to a rumour that great vio- lence had been manifested, and that several acts of outrage had been committed. Notwithstanding the disappointment, however, the day passed over rather pleasantly, and the assemblage had all the appearance of a grand fair. Four of the Nottingham frame- breakers, all noto- rious characters, have been apprehended, and fully committed for trial. added provision for this number of persons-, what must be the distresses to which the little and in- dustrious occupiers of land are exposed ?— We are much- disappointed that Parliament should separate without any one attempt at alleviating this oppres- sive, because unequal burthen. The poor must be fed ; and we should be among the last to advocate any advantage to one class of the com- munity, which would be injurious to the most „ necessitous : but we repeat what we have before advanced ; and while we see the band of liberality in all the disposals of the public treasure, we cannot be answered by the want of means, that there never was a more imperative call on the national purse, than a temporary relief to the poor- rates of such parishes, where, from the number of the unemployed, the parochial funds are insufficient for their support. It is not a boon, but a just debt which the nation owes. The battle being won, and the empire preserved, the brave defenders are returned to live exclusively on their particular parishes— to be a charge on the separate exertions of those who have only generally shared the benefits which have been derived. But how would such an expedient serve ? it may be asked: the public purse is the aggregate of private means, and the impost would still be levied on those it is intended to benefit. True; but the wealthy and the independent would contribute, not according to the extent of his house, but his ability; and the temporary relief, if even the money was to be hereafter repaid, would, in many instances, be of the most essential good. Many, many are the cases where the industrious are struggling to reap the promised harvest with narrowed funds; parochial contributions are increased; and those contributions which are wrung from their necessities make their own fire- sides more wretched than the unfortunate whom they are so unequally called on to support. Something- must be done, or the middle order of society will be destroyed, and there will exist no other classes but the wealthy and. the poor. BANKRUPTS.

The Paris and German papers are alike destitute of any political news of the least importance. Those from the French capital continue filled with the details of the arrangements making to celebrate the marriage of the Duke de Berri with the Princess Caroline of Naples. It is stated that at the close of the Sessions of Parliament, the Prince Regent will recommend to all proprietors of estates the important measure of returning to their respective homes, and devoting their attention to superintending and giving em- ployment to the poor. We cannot in sufficiently Strong terms express our regret that this salutary recommendation should not be alone the creature of expediency, but of melancholy necessity— a necessity far more imperious in its demands than we believe the Government of the country are aware of. The wretched extention of pauperism, which almost literally stalks with devastating strides throughout the nation, calls for some serious preventive, and which, we fear, individual exer- tion, however general and zealous, cannot con- siderably reduce. They who reside in towns can scarcely credit, that not only agricultural labourers, but artificers, are Compelled to live on parochial relief; and that bodies of men, to the amount of thirty and forty, are employed in some parishes, in absence of all other occupations, on the roads. When to the wants of the aged and infirm are The utmost despondency in commercial affairs is acknowledged to exist throughout the United- States. So great is the stagnation of trade, that but very few of the merchant vessels are employed. Our countrymen who have emigrated, are in a most deplorable state ; upwards of 1000 of them have applied to the British Consul at New York to be sent, home as distressed British subjects. Lord Exmouth has by negociation with, the Barbary States, been successful in prevailing upon them to liberate above 2,500 Christian slaves, prin- cipally Neapolitanst Sicilians, and Sardinians. Seventeen hundred had been actually sent to their respective homes, and the dungeons were expected to be cleared in a few weeks. This is good, but subsequent events have shown that force, and not negotiation, will put an end to this horrible system. The following statement of the persecutions still inflicted on the French Protestants, appeared in the Morning Chronicle of Tuesday:— Extract of a letter from- a French Protestant at Nismes," dated . the 19th of May _" As soon as our enemies heard the news of the commotions which had taken place in Dauphiny, they proceeded to acts of vio- lence against our unfortunate- brethren here. Two houses, that of Crouset on the Placette, and that of Paulet, were broken into and plundered on Sunday evening, the 12th. Many of the Protestants were beaten in the streets to such a degree, that four or five of them were in great danger, and were obliged to keep their beds. On the 13th the populace ran about the fauxbourgs, knocking at the doors of all the Protestants, and declaring, with imprecations, that an Ordonnance of the King had just arrived, by which he commanded all the Protestants to embrace the Catholic- faith, and that there should be only one religion and one law throughout the kingdom. The mob broke into the houses where the persons who had been beaten were lying in their beds: one of them, - of the name of Tessonier, was near being murdered by the ruffians, who had broken into his room, when his hostess, a Catholic, upon endeavouring in vain to defend him, brought her child and placed him on the bed with Tessonier, exclaiming, ' You shall kill my child, if you kill him.'— We have had great rejoicings on occasion of the arrival amongst us of two of the Deputies of the Gard, M. De Bernis and M. De Culviere. The women of the Bourgordes went out to meet, and to congratulate them, having, at their head, what they are pleased to call, the company of whippers. Their gestures, their cries, their vociferations, and their actions, gave them the appearance of furies, and filled us with horror. Some ladies who had lately returned to- Nismes, were so terrified, that they immediately quitted it.- Conversions continue. There is some one or other every day. That of Sarape is particularly- mentioned, and that of Seguin, formerly a violent Terrorist, who has printed an account of his conversion, and distri- buted- a great many copies of - it." The Bank Restriction Rill on Thursday received the Royal Assent by Commission.— In the House of Commons, the Rape- Seed Bill was read a third time, and passed; as was also the Exchequer Consolidation Bill. Mr. Huskisson moved tor leave to bring in a Bill for ratifying the purchase of the Claremont Estate, and settling the same on her Royal Highness the Princess Charlotte and Prince Leopold of Saxe Cobourg. The purchase- money would amount to 56,0001. including the furniture; the estate, being estimated at. 30,0001. and the house at 19,0001. which would be cheaper than fitting up any of the Royal palaces for their accommodation. The money raised by the sale of some inconsiderable manors belonging to the Crown would be applied to this purpose; and in case of the parties dying before the Princess came to the throne, the estate to revert to the Crown.-*- Leave being given, the Bill was brought " up, and read a first time. A superb statue of Mr. Fox has been erected in the upper part of Bloomsbury- square, facing the statue of the late Duke of Bedford. It is in bronze, and of colossal dimensions, being to a scale of nine feet in height, and elevated upon a pedestal of granite, surmounting a spacious base formed of several steps or gradations. The whole is about seventeen feet in height. The likeness of Mr. Fox is perfect and striking. The inscription, which is in letters of bronze, is, " Charles James Fox. Erected in MDCCCXVI." lemnities, in consequence of some very daring acta of out- rage committed by various misguided individuals in this town and its neighbourhood, which must be still fresh in your recollection. In contemplating the nature of- these atrocities, it is impossible to consider- without commenda- tion the; conductors of those prompt and. efficacious mea- sures by which, after it had domineered for several days together, the spirit of tumult and devastation was finally subdued. The natural progress of triumphant insurrection is to increase in fury, and to grow larger in its demands, until from robbery it proceeds to the burning of houses and the murder of their inhabitants. Although no offences of this last and highest kind will be laid before you, yet it appears by the depositions that some crimes of a very deep dye have been committed. Of some of these," con- sidering the situation of their perpetrators, it may be difficult to penetrate the motive ; and it may be, as often happens in such cases, that it was hardly known to the offenders themselves. The pretence for these lawless disturbances seems to have been the necessity of an ad- vance in the wages of husbandry; but the circumstances of some among the offenders do not correspond with the supposition of such an object. It had happened, that the hardships necessarily incident to a state of poverty were aggravated by the peculiarity of the seasons; and the temper of mind which was thus produced appears to have been in flamed by designing persons into a settled hostility against the higher orders of society. This spirit soon manifested itself in the destruction of property, as if la- bour could he encouraged, and wages raised, by the ruin of those who are to employ the one and to pay the other. In no country in the world arc there so many institutions for the humane purpose of- administering to the wants and necessities of the poor— in no country does both public and private bounty flow in so many streams for the coin- fort and relief of the distressed classes of the community It is to be observed, too, that the money which was taken from individuals on this melancholy occasion was not ap- plied to the support of the families of the offenders, but was consumed in riot and intoxication,' by which the blood was heated, the understanding- confused, and the spirit inflamed to acts of further and more violent aggression against the persons and property of their neighbours, The number of persons, engaged in the commission of these offences' is so considerable, that it has been deemed necessary thus suddenly to call you together, in order that the innocent may be restored to liberty without delay, the guilty brought to punishment, and the peaceable in- habitant convinced that the laws are effectual for his pro- tection and his vindication. It is the; first time that such a proceeding has been deemed necessary in this place, and I sincerely hope it may be the last,— I am not aware that the task which you are now nailed upon to execute, however painful, will be attended with any extraordinary difficulties. Judging from the deposit ons which lie before me, the capital felonies to be presented to you resolve themselves info the three crimes of burglary, robbery from the person,. and stealing in a dwelling- house. It is fit, however, that I should here make one observation, which is, that there are many offences committed by large assemblies of men, in which the guilt is not confined to the individual whose hand executes the felonious act.' All those who Tare present at its commission,' who favour it with their approbation and concurrence, or who aid and encourage by their - voice or action, are involved in the same legal culpability. This is a principle dictated by reason, and established in law; for without the presence of others the actual perpetrator might not have been able to accomplish the criminal purpose, or might have been deterred from attempting it by the exertions of the well- disposed. With regard to the particular crime of burglary, it may be proper for me to remark, that it consists in the breaking of a house at night with intent to commit some felony What the nature of this felony may be is not ma- terial; nor is it necessary, in order to constitute burglary, that the felonious: intention should have been carried into effect The circumstances under which the breaking at night has been effected. must form the evidence of the intent with Which it was done. All who then enter are equally guilty, and the same rule applies to ( hose also who keep watch while others enter. Even if the entry should be made in consequence of the door being opened by the owner himself under the influence of artifice or threats, it is in the contemplation of law a burglary ; for the law will not suffer its wholesome restraints to be evaded by the shifts and contrivances of a felon.— Upon the subject of robbery from the person, it may be important for you to inquire, whether the money raised by a riot- us assembly is to be considered, in the cases to which your attention will be drawn; as a voluntary contribution of the indi- viduals from whom it was taken, or as extorted by violence, or under reasonable Tear. In the consideration, however, of what amounts to this offence, it is not necessary to advert either to the time or the place of its commission. To steal in and welling house has been made a capital felony by many statutes, but if is necessary that the larceny should be actually committed. Without troubling you, however, by. reciting a series of legislative enactments on this subject,' I should advise you generally to return the bills as they are presented to you, and leave any difficulty of legal construction to that more accurate investigation which it will afterwards receive in this place. On the nature of ordinary riots and breach- of the public peace, you can require no instruction from me; but on every occasion, as well as the present, the Court will be happy to afford you all the assistance in its power With regard to the description of proof which will he laid before you, there is little to be remarked, further than there is reason to believe it will most cases be satisfactory— the evi- dence of eye- witnesses upon acts done in open day, and without any disguise, in some instances by neighbour upon neighbour; so bold and daring was the Violation of the public peace If the evidence of accomplices; in these transactions should be offered to you, you will receive it with caution, and give credit to it only when confirmed or supported by more unexceptionable testimony I can- not, however, conclude this address, without exhorting you to proceed with a calm and temperate, but with a firm and manly determination— on the one hand, not to con elude, front your indignation at guilt, too hastily against the prisoners ; and on the other, that the serious nature of the charges shall not deter you from presenting them to the justice of your country. It is Of the highest import- ance to the peace and safety, not only of this Isle, but of the surrounding country, that all who are present on this solemn inquiry, and all who read the account of its pro- ceedings ( and there are few parts of the kingdom in which it will not be read), may be convinced by the awful lesson which may be here taught, that whatever wild or chimeri- cal notion may prevail of the power of an armed multitude, the law is too strong for its assailants; and that, however triumphant or destructive their sway for a few days, those who defy the law will ultimately be compelled to submit either to its justice or its mercy. The Grand Jury then retired, and the Court ad- journed till Tuesday morning, at nine o'clock The Calendar consisted of eighty- two persons, nine only of whom had been admitted to bail; the rest were in prison. On Tuesday, the Court having re- assembled, John Easey, Joseph Easey, Richard Jessop, T. South the younger, John Walker, Mark Benton, Robert Butcher, George Crow, Isaac Harley, Richard Nicholas, Wilson Wyebrow, and William Jefferson, were indicted for hav- ing, on Wednesday, the 22d day of . May last, burglariousla broken open and entered the dwelling- house of Rebeecy Waddelow, of Littleport, in the Isle of Ely, shopkeeper, and feloniously stolen and carried away therefrom one hat and five shirts, the property of. Harry Martin, of Little- port aforesaid, farmer, and divers articles of grocery and drapery goods, together with 31. and three promissory notes, the property of the said Rebecca Waddelow. Several witnesses were examined to prove the act of robbing and plundering; but after much evidence had been gone through, a conference look place among the Judges, and Mr. Justice Abbot told the Jury that there was a mistake in the framing of this indictment, which would lead to the acquittal of all the prisoners, as far as their lives were concerned, in consequence of the de- scription of the property given by the last witness-; and though it was open to the Counsel for the Crown to pro- ceed for the minor felony, he understood from them that they would not press it„ and therefore all the prisoners must be. acquitted — The Jury accordingly returned a Verdict of— Not Guilty. Aaron Chevill, Richard Jessop, Joseph Easey, Thomas South the younger, Mark Benton, William Dann, and Francis Torrington, were then indieted for having, on the night of the 22d of May last, burglariously broken open and entered the dwelling- house of Josiah Dewey, in the town of Littleport, and for having stolen and carried aw ay therefrom one hundred guineas in gold, and divers articles of furni- ture and wearing apparel; and with having assaulted and put in bodily fear the said Josiah Dewey, in his dwelling- hOUSE, taking from his person a one pound bankers' cash note.— Mr. Dewey and two other witnesses having given evidence as to the facts charged in the indictment, Mr. Justice Burrough observed, that there was no sufficient evidence to prove that Torrington had been guilty of any offence. The charge of burglary laid in the indictment could not be sustained, because it did not appear to have been dark when the breaking in was effected ; but by the course of law the prisoners might be convicted of a capital felony in stealing from a dwelling- house. The evidence not being sufficient with respect to Torrington and Dann, the Jury would probably deem them entitled to an ac- quittal ; but he must leave to their consideration whether any reasonable doubt could be entertained as to the guilt of the other prisoners.— The Jury, after a short conside- ration, delivered a verdict of guilty against Chevill, Easey, Jessop, South and Benton ; and acquitted Dann and Torrington, who were detained to take then; trial upon other indictments. COL . CHESTER, SATURDAY, JUNE 22, 1816. * f* In the Lottery Advertisement, which appears in the . first page, an error has arisen. It should have stated that the Drawing will take place on TUESDAY, the 25th, instead of THURSDAY. . In commemoration of the glorious victory of Waterloo, a number of the principal inhabitants of this town assembled on Tuesday at the Angel Inn, where a most excellent dinner was provided. The chair was taken, with much condescension and affability, by Edward Clay, Esq. the Chief Magis- trate. The heroes who have immortalized them- selves, and shed a never- fading lustre on the annals of their country, by the brilliant achievements of that day, were held in grateful and enthusiastic veneration as the " sparkling glass went round ;" and the hilarity of the company was heightened by several very excellent songs.— In the evening there • was a display of fire- works in the New Market; from which two balloons, on Montgolfier's plan, ascended, embellished by a portrait of the illustri- ous chieftain Wellington, and sketches of the battles by which the primary means have been obtained of effecting the liberty and independence of Europe.

A circular notice has been issued from the Se- cretary of State's Ofiice, declaring, that as consi- derable inconvenience has arisen, in many parts of the country, from an apprehension that the defaced. silver coin now in circulation will not be taken in exchange for the new coinage, in preparation, it be- comes necessary to observe, that the defaced coin of the realm will be taken in exchange for the new coinage, as soon as the latter is completed ; and recommending that bankers and tradesmen will continue to receive such defaced coin in the mean time. KENT COUNTY MEETING.— AN extraordinary scene took place at Maidstone on Monday afternoon. A meeting had been appointed by public adver- tisement, to propose Addresses from the County to the- Royal Family, in consequence of the marriage of the Princess Charlotte, i Three waggons having been arranged in the market- place before the hour appointed, two were seized, and occupied by the mob; but the third was reserved for the High Sheriff. At about one, Mr. Evelyn, who holds that office, appeared, attended by several Noblemen and Gentlemen. The business having been opened by the Sheriff, Lord Clinton moved the Resolutions, on which an Address was intended to be founded, and in so doing he adverted to the glorious termination of the war— to the success that had attended the Re- gent's Government— and to the happiness that was diffused in every situation in life, from the Prince to the Peasant; concluding with an eulogium upon the Prince of Saxe Cobourg.— Symptoms of dissa- tisfaction appeared while his Lordship was com- menting on the felicity possessed in every station of life.— Colonel Harris seconded the Resolutions : which were supported by Sir William Geary. The motion being put by the High Sheriff for the ap- probation of the public, very few hands were raised in favour of the Resolutions ; and it being sus- pected by the multitude that Mr. Evelyn, who had withdrawn, proposed to sanction the proceedings as if the motion had been agreed to, a loud call was made for him to declare the majority, with excla- mations of—" Give us work— supply us with bread — no foreigners." — The motions comprehended Addresses to the Prince Regent, the Queen, Prince Leopold, and the Princess Charlotte; and as the proposition of passing them singly was not acceded to, it wits attempted to pass them altogether. This attempt was equally fruitless; and the Meeting was dissolved. By the new Husbandry Horse Bill, those used on farms not exceeding 501. per annum, are to pay 3s.; tint exceeding1001. to pay 5s.; and not exceeding 2001. to pay 7s. 6d. each horse. GRATITUDE.— Mr. Thomas Barton, of Threx- ton, Norfolk, on Saturday se'nnight gave a good supper and plenty of old beer to a company of men, whom he had hired for the ensuing harvest. One of them, to shew his gratitude to so generous a master, before quitting the premises, stole a quan- tity of poultry, and was taking it home, but was detected and committed to Swaffham Bridewell, for trial at the Sessions. SPECIAL COMMISSION AT ELY. MONDAY, JUNE. 17. This day, at ten o'clock, the Hon. Mr. Justice Abbot, Mr. Justice Burrough, and Edward Christian, Esq. Chief Justice of the Isle of Ely, arrived in this town, preceded by a cavalcade consisting of the prin- cipal inhabitants, a ltd immediately repaired to the Court- House, where they opened a Special Commission for the trial of the persons charged with having riot- ous'y assembled, and committed various felonies at Littleport and Ely. The Commission having been read, the Judges proceeded to the Cathedral, where divine service was performed. The Court re- assembled at one o'clock, and the preliminary business being concluded and the Grand Jury sworn, Mr. Justice Abbot addressed them to the following effect:— " Gentlemen of the Grand Jury— You have been called together at this unusual period,' aud with the present so- On Wednesday, Thomas South, William Dann, and Ro- bert Crabbe were indicted for forcibly entering and felo- niously stealing from the house of Robert Speedily, yeo- man, of Littleport, sundry articles of wearing apparel, plate, linen, china, and glass, his property. — The charge being clearly subtantiated, all the prisoners ware found guilty. Joseph Warner, Joseph Stibbard, Isaac Harley, James Newell, and William Gotobed, who is not in custody, were indicted for forcibly entering the house of the Rev. John Vachel, putting him- in bodily fear, and taking from his person two II. notes, his property.— Mr. Gurney described this case to be equal, if It did not exceed, in violence and atrocity, the circumstances of those that had already en- gaged the consideration of the Jury. This gentleman, with his wife and daughter, were obliged, in order to save their lives, to escape from their own home at midnight, and leave their house a scene of pillage and destruction.— The Rev. John Vachel deposed, that he first observed the mob assembling about nine o'clock at night, and went out with a view of persuading them to disperse. They com- plained of the lowness of wages, and his endeavours to re- press the tumult were ineffectual. About eleven o'clock he heard a great noise, and rapping at his door. He di- rected his servant to unlock it. and he asked them what they wanted. The prisoner Harley said they wanted money, and they must have it. He gave them two II. notes, with which they were not satisfied, some saying, two pounds will be of no use to us, we must have ten."— Witness desired if the 21. were of no use to them, that they should return them to him, which however they refused to do. He told them that lie had not got 101. when the pres- sure became so violent upon him that he was obliged to give way, and the mob entered his house. Newell was the man who received the notes from him.— The Jury found Harley and Newell guilty, but acquitted Warner and Stibbard. John Dennis. Flanders Hopkins, James Cammell, John Jefferson. and Richard Rutter, were put to the bar, and indicted for stealing from the dwelling- house of Robert Edwards, in the city of Ely, the sum 501. in bankers' cash notes, the property of the said Robert Edwards. Margaret Rick wood said her husband was a miller, resi- dent in Ely. She saw the mob a her door between eight and nine o'clock on the morning of the 23d. Dennis, with eight or nine others came into the house, variously armed, and asked for her husband, who was not at home. She inquired what was their wish. Somebody replied, they must have 501. or the house and mill would come down imme- diately. She desired her son to goto Sir. Edwards's, and get full, from his Bank. Before his return, Dennis said, he could not quell the mob if the money was not forth- coming, and she then heard two or three of the windows crack on the outside. She then went up Broad- street with them to the Bank. On her way, she met Mr. Ed- wards. He desired her to take his arm, and said, if there were a thousand of them they should not have a penny, when some person struck Mr. Edwards on the head, and the blood followed Mr. Edwards afterwards observed, that if the money must be paid, they were to send three persons into the house to receive it, and the three who went were Dennis, Hopkins, and Sanderson, who is not in custody.— On cross- examination, she stated that Dennis did no mischief in her house, and begged the rest of the mob not to do any. She was much alarmed, and Hopkins said, Dou't be afraid, cousin; you shall not be hurt." Robert Edwards corroborated the testimony of the fore- going witness so far as related to himself. The evidence > u support of the charge having been gone through, Mr Hunt, for the prisoners, submitted that the capital part of the charge could not be maintained, as no legal property had been proved to vest in Edwards. The Court reserved the objection. Mr Justice Abbot recapitulated the evidence, and ob served, that if the Jury should be of opinion that Mr. Edwards was induced to part with the money from vio- lence and fear, it was not material whether it was the money of Rickwood, or of the bankers, or of Mr. Edwards. The indictment, however, was so framed as to meet the case in every view. Dennis had said, that he was not a free and voluntary agent, but it was incumbent to show most clearly, not merely that he was in the outset forced to join an unlawful assembly, but that he continued in it only so long as that force was upon him. With regard to Hopkins, if they thought that his real object was to afford Mrs. Rickwood protection, they would acquit him. The prisoners had received good characters, but where facts were clearly proved, character could not avail. The Jury deliberated for some time, and then returned a verdict, finding Dennis, Jefferson, and Rutter guilty, bat ac- quitting Hopkins and Cammell. MARRIED. On Monday, Mr. Hancock, upholsterer, to Miss Ann Ranson, both of Bury. On Tuesday, Mr. William Cressy, of Stock, to Miss Ca- tharine Clover, of the same place. A few days since, the Rev. A. F. Stone, Rector of Cold Norton, in this county, to Miss A. K. Baker, of Stoke, near Plymouth. DIED. On Sunday last, in a gradual decline, aged 48 years, Mr. James Rolph, of Kent's Hill, Thorp- le- Soken, who served the office of Perpetual Churchwarden for that parish up- wards of twenty years. In him society has lost an upright member: possessing a sound mind, blended with the most rigid integrity, it may be truly said, he lived in the esteem of all who knew him. He was a kind husband and an affectionate father; and has left a widow and ten children to lament their irreparable loss. On Saturday last, in the 66th year of his age, Jonathan Page, Esq. barrack- master, of Maldon. Ship News. FROM LLOYD'S LIST. FRIDAY, JUNE 14.

By the Jamaica Mail the following interesting letter has beett Veceived from one of the unfortunate British subjects, \ vho was imprisoned at Carthagena by order of Morillo:— " KINGSTON, JAMAICA, May\%.— Since I wrote ] to you in November, 1 have suffered much, as you ; may well imagine. I was precisely four months, except one day, in itte dungeons of the Inquisitipn, whence I was liberated after every effort had been made to fconvict me upon the Ordinances of Spain. I arrived herte the 3d inst. in pretty good health, only my nerves are still weak, having at one time lost the use of my right arm. Admiral Douglas's early interference was the means of taking me out of the Military Commission which condemned Mine unhappy victims after a mock trial. " 1 left Carthagena on the 27th Ult. at which period the proceedings of Morillo in the interior were carefully concealed: certain it is, his head- quarters wtire in Ocana, and therefore a great distance from Santa F4. The General Congress has removed to Tunca; and, in consequence of the . execution of two of the nine above alluded to, who I had surrendered under a promised pardon, the I spirit of the people had acquired renewed life, and I occasioued a determination to light to the last.— I Morillo, as you know, is Captain General of Ve- nezuela ; and in consequence of a growing change I in the spirit of that people whom lie had so recently I left to all appearance resigned to their new dynasty, he had dispatched 1500 of the Expeditionary Army frotlt Ocana back Upon the Caraccas, so that the force he now possesses, exclusive of the troops left to garrison Sta. Martha and Carthagena, cannot exceed 4000; a number, I trust, inadequate to a I successful conquest of New Granada* You will learn that a squadton from Buenos Ayres has been cruizing between Lima and Panama, and that Bo- livar had gone from Hayti with no trifling force, and well supplied with arms, with a View of landing to windward. Report says, he has effected that landing near Cuuiana. Should this prove true, 1 feel very confident of his success; for Moriilo, by his oppression, has sown the seeds of discontent among the people, to a depth now impossible to root up. The language of those in power, whom I had an opportunity of conversing with, during the period between my enlargement and subsequent departure, was marked and ominous. " These deluded people were happy and free before th". y separated from the mother country, now they will find what it is to be truly slaves : we will first decimate the popuktion, and having first cut off the most offensive members, tie up and bandage the others so tightly and so securely, that contagion will cease." " But in every view the success of Morillo is to be deprecated. Humanity shudders at the pro- spect, and the commercial interests of Great Bri- tain already feel the bad effects. The laws of the Indies are again in full force, and the Philippine Company, by proclamation, are to have the full monopoly in Venezuela and New Granada the mo- ment Ferdinand is in general possession. At the lowest calculation the exports from British ports to New Granada and across the Isthmus this year will be more than fifteen millions of dollars less than they were the year prior to the visit of Mo- rillo's expedition ! This is no trifle, and must j soon shake the adverse opinion ottr manufacturers have had to Government interfering in the affairs I of Spanish America. These advantages and dis- I appointments are now in the balance, and the hu- mane and patriotic spirit of England must feel an 1 interest iti the fulcrum. I have shewn what New Granada has done for our manufacturers, and the same documents will have pointed out to you what permanently increasing advantages she offered in her freedom. Since my arrival here I have ob- served with much pleasure the spirited decision of North America, in sending out a force with a Commissioner to Carthagena, in order to demand the citizens of the United States and their property, | so illegally detained. " The demand is just, and I can tell you it will ' avail, once more, to give that infant navy a power of crowing over ours. What authority has Mo- rillo to keep up a blockade of Carthagena ?— for it is still permitted him to call it so. 1 take it, that the fall or surrender of the place, ipso facto, ter- minates the blockade, and the property detained after is illegal, and should at least be allowed the right of pre- emption: such will be the ground, I apprehend, the United States will take, and they must succeed. Why have we the prospect of losing our property with such a navy, and the citizens of the United States so great a prospect of recovering theirs ? If this and other matters fore- bode war between the United States and Spain, the jewel of the Indies will at once disappear from the Crown of Spain." The following is the amount of the revenue de- rived from newspapers:— Newspaper Stamps for the whole kingdom £. s. d. of England 303,414 3 4 Duties on Advertisements for ditto 110,941 6 6 Newspaper Stamps for the whole kingdom of Scotland 20,? 81 12 10 Duties on Advertisements of ditto 14,017 7 0 Total ,... 508,654 9 8 CORONER'S INQUEST.— An inquisition was taken on Saturday, in Little Portland- street, on the body of Ilenry Arnold, who cut his throat on Thursday. This case has excited much commis- seration. The poor man had a sick and distressed wife in the workhouse, and to relieve her he pawned a sheet for two shillings, which he had taken from his lodgiug- rooin. He was taken to Marlborough- street Police- office, and committed under the Pawning Art. After having been locked up for some time, information was given toMarsden, the gaoler, that he was dead, and it turned out he had cut his throat with a razor, which was found by his body. The Jury returned a verdict of Lunacy. DESCRIPTION OF A CHAIN BRIDGE, SAID TO BE THE INVENTION OF AN OFFICER OF * NIE ' ST AFF CORPS. This Bridge, which is of a most sitaple and sin- gular construction, ( being adapted for military purposes,) is intended for re- iestablishing a passage of a destroyed or blown up stone bridge, or even, if requisite, to form a communication across a river, provided the banks of it are sufficiently high and firm to secure a footing. It consists of thirteen chains for a span of l-> 0 or 160 feet, made of cop- per or good irdn. These chains form the main sup, port of the bridge, and they are attached to ring- bolts, or to a chain coiled round a semicircular channel, cut into the masonry, or banks, at each end, j as circumstances require. They are rove into per- forated transverse beams, 3 by 7 inches, and 12J feet long, which preserve the chains firm and equally distended. These beams are placed at certain distances along the Bridge, and on the intermediate spaces ( for each transverse beam serves also as a plank) the planking, two inches thick, and twelve feet long, is laid, and lashed to the two lateral chains— which completes the operation. — It is computed, that, with proper tools, and a sufficient I number of workmen, a Chain Bridge may, 011 an I average, be established in six hours ; and it may I bfe divided into such light masses as to be trans- ported with the greatest possible celerity, and be I adapted to any span. EXTRACTS [ FROM ARTHUR YOTLSC S FARMER'S COMPANION FOR THE MONTH OF JUNE. " It is exceedingly good husbandry to sow spring tares in this month, and a quart of cole- seed over the same land, in older to have a very wholesome I and nourishing food for weaned lambs in autumn. I This is a practice on the South Downs, in Sussex, from which great benefit is derived. The breadth of land thus to be applied will depend 011 the other I articles provided for the same application. The land first soiled, or fed, of winter tares, may be ploughed fbr this purpose, and thus two beneficial I crOps gained in one year. I " They have on the South Downs an admirable practice in their course of crops, which cannot be too much commended: that of substituting a dou- ble crop of tares, instead of a fallow, for wheat.— Let the intelligent reader give his attention to this practice, for it is worth a journey of 500 miles. They sow forward tares, which are led off late in the spring with ewes and lambs; they then plough, and sow summer tares and rape, two bushels and a half of tares and half a gallon of rape, and this they feed off with their lambs in time to plough once for wheat:— October Oth, I saw a fine crop finishing between Lewes and Brighton. The more this husbandry is analized, the more excellent it will apj> wsir. The land in the fallow year is mace to support the utmost possible quantity of sheep which its destination admits ; the two plough- ings are given at the best seasons to turn the weeds down, and the laud covered with crops. I he quantity of sheep supported yields amply in ma- nure; the treading the soil receives previous to sowing wheat, is grateful to that plant; in a word, many views are answered, and a new variation from the wretched business of summer fallowing discovered, which, by a judicious application, would be attended, in great tracts of the kingdom, with most beneficial consequences to the farmer's profit." THRASHING XMACHINES. — These machines might have been of • real utility a few years since, inasmuch as they supplied ihe deficiency of la- bourers, but now that employment is so scarce among the lower classes, many persons are fully convinced they tend to increase the farmer's bur- dens, more especially when it is considered, that a deficiency in labourers' wages, from waut of | work, is, up to a certain amount, made good from the poor- rates. There are moral evils also attend- ingthe use of the machine; and if every expence is fairly estimated, it will, perhaps, be found corn may be thrashed as cheap by hand. By an Act passed on the 21st ult. the days of muster and exercise ul the Yeomanry Cavalry, to entitle them to be returned as effective, is reduced front twelve tosixin every year, to be divided into two I days or three equal parts, in each four months. And I in case of five successive days of muster and exer- I cise, such five days entitle each individual soattend- I ing to be returned or certified as effective. Distress I warrants have been lately executed on some indivi- I duals belonging to the Yeomanry Cavalry, in Hunt- ingdonshire, for not paying the horse- duty with which they were surcharged, because, through I some omission, they were not called upon by their commanding officer to perforin the whole of the I parade days in the last year. In one instance, in the I neighbourhood of St. Neots, an auctioneer was called to sell a cart and some sheep, which had I been thus seized, and although nearly a hundred individuals were present, not one bidding was I offered. I Two farmers applied to the Magistrates, at an adjourned Sessions for Devon, to be discharged as insolvent debtors; but in consequence of their having removed their property, to prevent their landlord from recovering the rent due, they were remanded to prison, where they are to remain for five years, the time fixed by the Act. POTATOES.— To prevent fermentation, and to preserve them from losing their original flavour, it has been suggested to pack them in casks while digging from the ground, and to have the casks, when the potatoes are piled in them, filled up with sand or earth, taking care that it is done as speedily as possible, and that all vacant spaces in the cask are filled up by the earth or sand ; the cask, thus packed, holds as many potatoes as it weuld with- out the earth or sand used in the packing ; and, as the vacant spaces of the cask of potatoes so packed are filled, the air is totally excluded, and cannot act on the potatoes, and consequently, no fer- mentation can take place. A gentleman whoadopted this method, sailed from New York to St. Bartho- lomew's, and took 200 barrels of potatoes packed; and, on his arrival, he found that the potatoes had preserved all their original sweetness of flavour, and were as good as when first dug; having undergone no fermentation, nor being in the slightest degree affected by the bilge or close air of the ship. This is evidently a very important, economical, aud com- mercial discovery. T& e following liberal reductions of rent have j been recently made by the under- mentioned gentle- men in Lincolnshire and Rutlandshire: SirGetnge Cayley, to his Scampton tenants, in some cases 9O, I and in one case 70 per cent.; Earl Manvers, at his last rent- day at Horncastle, 20 per cent. : the j Corporation of Boston, 20 per cent.'; George Fludyer, Esq. of Thistleton, 20 per cent.; Rev. J. Hopkinson, at Market Overton, 20 per cent.; Sir W. E. Welby, Bart, of Deftton House, Lincoln- shire, 10 per cent.; and Earl Brovvnlow, a similar abatement. The ReportOTthe Select Committee of the House j of Commons on the Leather Trade has been pointed. I It states, there is reason to believe that in articles 1 made of leather, exported, the drawbacks are not I sufficient to compensate the, duties on the raw material; and that, for the encouragement of the I export trade, it may be a fit object of consideration, I whether those drawbacks should not be increased. It recommends, that the restrictions on tanners be so far removed as to permit skins to be shaved while in the ooze, and those to be separated while in the process of tanning ; and that shumac shall not be used in the trade for any purpose, except colouring leather. The Committee decline offering any opinion 011 the other matter of the petitions, until they have heard further evidence. The Report of the Select Committee upon the State of Menditity in the Metropolis has been printed, in pursuance of the Order of the Commons of the 26th of May. It states, that mendicity in the streets is much diminished since the investiga- tion of last year, and that, by a strict enforcement of the existing laws, the town might be speedily cleared of mendicants altogether; but as that course . would only transfer the evil into the country, it I recommends, that an establishment be formed on Mr. Martin's plan of inquiry, for the purpose of discriminating the meritorious poor from the other classes; that due diligence be used to send home the Irish, Scotch, and African mendicants; that the Chelsea and Greenwich pensioners ( a very I troublesome class of mendicants) be taken out of the streets, and some other minor regulations. According to the observations of several astrono- mers, upon the spots whirh the sun's disk exhihits I at this period, one of them is of a considerable size, it resembles a groupe of small islands lying close together, and has at least the breadth of the dia- meter of the earth. Another spot is very obscure, and surrounded by a ligher shadow. There are six spots in the whole. In Sweden the universal practice of vaccination has entirely exterminated the small- pox; so that nocase of that disease has occurred during the last two years; and the nations of the Continent, par- ticularly Russia and Prussia, are making Tapid progress to the same object; while in England the number sacrificed to the Moloch prejudice in the horrid form of small- pox, though constantly dimi- nishing, is still very considerable. PRINTING FROM STONE.— Mr. John Ruthven, of Edinburgh, has been employed in improving and applying to practical purposes, the important art of - printing drawing's, & c. from stone. This is rendered much more extensively useful, by being combined with an iugenious press lately invented by Mr. Ruthven, by means ot which any individual may take off any number of impressions with the utmost ease. A few days since the workmen employed in taking down the massive pier of the old bridge at Chepstow, found a mason's hammer of a curious make, aud a walnut. Although both must have lain there for many ages, the walnut- shell and kernel were as perfect as when taken from the tree. Does not this prove the great antiseptic' powers of lime, and furnish a hint how walnuts may be pie. set ved a great length of time ? Before the Court of Assize, in Paris, the extra- ordinary thai of a woman named Caroline Leruth was decided on the 4th. She was charged with having stabbed the Sieur Delacourt with a sharp instrument, with an intention of putting him to death. This circumstance, which caused an un- common sensation in Paris at the time, has been already noticed in our Paper. It appeared, from the confession of the woman, as well as that of De- lacourt himself, that this unfortunate man being tired of his life, met the woman in the garden of the Tuileries, entered into conversation with her, took her to dine with him, accompanied her afterwards to her lodgings, communicated to her his desperate intention of committing suicide, and offered her a • large sum of money to kill him, She refused to perpetrate the horrid deed, although she was in1 great distress : he made her drink a quantity, of wine, in order to deprive her of her senses, with a hope that, while in a state of intoxication, she might be prevailed oii to do the act: he gave her his note for 1,000 francs and his watch. He then took her along with him to the Boulevards, where she still peisisted in refusing to put him to death. He then sat down by a tree, took hold of her hand, put a sharp knife into it, and forced her hand, together with the knife, against his belly, which the knife entered. These were the principal facts of the case.— The Jury found Caroline Leruth guilty of having wounded Delacourt, aud sentenced her to ten yea s solitary confinement. A riot took place on Saturday night in the New Prison, Whitecress- street, which threatened serious consequences. It appears that the prisoners refused to be locked in, and it was not until after a violent struggle with the officers, that they were over- powered and compelled to retire to their respective wards. . . • T. Clegg, a mendicant, whose pitiful cries had long annoyed the inhabitants of Spring Gardens, and who pretended to be blind and lame,' having been taken to Queen- Square Office as acomi) ion vagrant, was ordered to be conducted. to a public- house opposite the office while his commitment was made out; but not liking the prospect of. a gaol,' he forgot his corporeal and visual defects, and watching an opportunity, he started, with . the , speed of a greyhound, outrun his pursuers, and got ' clear bff. SUDDEN DEATH. — On Friday evening, Mr. Woolley, a respectable coal- merchant,- of Mill- street, Lambeth, went to spend his evening at tile Rose Coffee- house, in Saville- row, Lambeth. He was amusing himself in the grounds, when lie sud- denly complained of a swimming in the head. He went into the house, and requested to have some Water, which was immediately brought, but he fell into the arms of the landlord, and instantly expired. An article . from Rotate says—" it is very difficult to obtain permission to see the statue, by Canova, in the Borghese Palace, vntx. sent ing the Princes? I'aulinu Borghese naked as Venus. It is counted one of the best works of the Master. A foreign lady asking the Princess Paulina how she could resolve to be represented in this manner, received for answer, ' Cent que la ekambre elait pien chauffeeP ( Oh, the 100111 was well healed!)',' We have copied the following paragraph from The Shrewsbury Chronicle : — " At Ketley, Madely, and other parts of the county, m. any smelting fur- naces have been extinguished aikl Ihe workmen turned adrift, which, of course, has occasioued forges and collieries to stop also. In this couutv, aud the adjoining one of Stafford, 43 furnaces liav> stopped working, each of which employed, from 200 to 250 men ; or, including forgemen, it may be said that each concern gave labour to at least 300 men— so that not lesj. than twelve thousand— many with destitute families— havebeen dismissed, to wander in search of subsistence. We haveseeii them for some time past travelling along our roads,, or passing from house to house in tln$, town, asking " for a job," with maniy firmness, and not obtrude i ng their coin plai nts or mentioning the wants of their families, unless led into conversation by some sympa- thizing inquirer. Their quiet cridurauce of distress gives them a double claitu upon our endeavours to afford them relief." An atticle from Augsburgh, of the 28th tilt. J says—" O11 the 21st, at six in the evening, such si I dreadful storm from the north- east arose at Gnold- shiem, near Spielberg, that the oldest inhabitants remember nothing so terrible ; the hail tell of the size of hen's eggs, and covered the earth in many places a foot deep. Birds, several hares, and deer, were found killed ; sheep were wounded in tho meadows, and labourers in the fields ; the whole land looks as if it had been trampled upon by horses; the trees stand stripped of their blossoms* leafless, and. broken. Not a house in the plain but what is damaged, and the injury at Gn'oldshtiin alone amounts to above 15,000 florins. H. Richard, a yqung man, of Stamford, lately ascended the steeple of All Saints ( 52 yards high) by means of the projecting stones which ornament the spire. When at the top, he stood on the table without a hold, and hung his waistcoat 011 the vane. What rendered the exploit more hazardous was, that the steeple was shaken by the ringing of the bells at the same time, and the wind blew a strong gale. This is the third time Richard has effected this dangerous and fool- hardy undertaking. Thursdayse'nuight. a sister- iu- law of Mr. Bolton, a pastry- cook, in Shoreditch, who has been in a state of mental derangement for a long time back, j watched an opportunity, in the absence of the family, of jumping out of the second floor window on the pavement, with a view of putting an end. to' I her existence. In her descent she happened to fall against a piece of lead projecting in front of the I house, and from thence pitched upon her head. Her screams soon brought the inmates to her as- I sistance. A surgeon was instantly procured', who found her in a dreadful state; no hopes being eu- I tertained of her recovery. On Saturday, a young man who had been in custody for a week, on suspicion of being con- cerned in stealing Bank- Miotes to the amount of 20001. the property of. the Earl of Derby, which the Noble Earl had sent inclosed in franks by the I post, was brought up to the Public O/ fice, Bow- I street, for a final'examination. In what way the I robbery has been effected has not yet been ascer- tained; two Bank- notes for 51. each, part of the j stolen property, having been traced to the prisoner, he was suspected ; but on Saturday Mr. Fletcher attended for the prisoner, and satisfactorily proved to Mr. Parkin, the Solicitor to the General Po.-. t- I office, that the prisoner had found the notes traced to him, and he was accordingly discharged. EXECUTION.— On Friday morning P. Street, a young man only twenty- two years of age, but a very old offender, who was tried and convicted on tour separate charges of burglary at the April Sessions, in the Old Bailey, was executed in front of the Debtors' door, at Newgate. SHOCKING DEPRAVITY.— A most distressing and disgraceful spectacle was exhibited on Friday, at the Queen-* quare Office; it arose out ol an examination of a petty assault. The complainant was the son- in- law of a Mrs. Wilkinson, who i « the owner of a number of little houses in Pye- stieet • and the Broadway, Westminster, called Wilkin- sori's- Rents, which are all occupied by girls that have been debauched and devoted to prostitution. He stated that his wife, who was the daughter of- Mrs. Wilkinson, left his house on Tuesnay night, and did not return home till the next morning: he and she had, in consequence, unpleasant words, and she directly left the house, and returned with her mother and two sisters, who all set about him aud beat him, and tore his ( ace. He now wished the Magistrate to bind them over to keep the peace towards him ; for he knew, if they were not bound, they would come to his house, backed by about a hundred bad women, aud he should be in danger of losing his life. Mr. Fielding asktd him why thebad women would assist her in such proceedings ? He replied, that if they were to refi. se, she would I directly turn them out of their lodgings; that she had at this time, he supposed, at least liiO lodgers, I all prostitutes, and he knew that many of them I were not more than twelve years of age, and some I yonng- er. Mr. Fielding ordertd the officers to go to I Wilkinson'S- Rents, and to hringallthe girls whom I they might find in the different rooms. 1 hey I went accordingly, and in a short time returned with about fifty : they said they could have. brought 300. Four of them ^ ere children abi ut lw « Ive I years of age ; and one, only beiwten thirteen and I fourteen, was shockingly diseased. Mr. Fielding ordered the officers to take her- to St. Martin's I workhouse; and for the other childien they were j to provide lodgings till they could tie sent to their j friends. Another child, only fourteen, who had I lately left Hampstead workhouse, and had been I harboured in one of this vile woman's rooms, was I so diseased, that - Mr. Fielding said he would get I her into the Lock Hospital. He then addressed I Mrs. Wilkinson, and informed her, that if an in- dictment should be preferred against her, she might I depend upon it her punishment would be the pillory I and confinement for life ; and if ever she or her I daughters went to the house of her son- in- law to I make any disturbance, he would, upon his cotn- | plaint, send them all to prison.
