A volume would not be sufficient to point out their various appearances. They imitate almost every disease ; and are seldom alike in two different per- sons, or even in the same person at different times.— Proteus like, they are continually changing shape; and upon every fresh attack, the patient thinks he feels symp- toms which he never experienced before. Nor do they only affect the body; the mind likewise suffers, and is often thereby rendered extremely weak and peevish.— The low spirits, timorousness, melancholy, and fickleness of temper, which generally attend nervous disorders, induce many to believe that they are entirely diseases of the mind; but this change of temper is rather a conse- quence than a cause of nervous diseases. The CORDIAL BALM of G1LEALD is decidedly the most elegant and efficacious Medicine ever yet disco- vered for Nervous Diseases, and shattered Constitutions, Consumptions, Weakness of Sight or Memory, Hypo- chrondria, Tremblings of the Mind, Sexual Debility, Stomach and Bowel Complaints, and all other Diseases arising from a relaxed state of the Nervous system; which are too often brought on by dissipation in youth, and the gross violation of those rules which prudence dictates for the preservation of health, and the laying a foundation fur a long and happy life, with a firm and strong constitution.

The Undersigned, Russian Consul General in Great Britain, has received instructions, dated St. Peters- burgh, the 17th ( 29th) May last, to the following effect:— The measures for the preservation of the public health in the northern provinces of the empire from any plague, having been adopted and approved by the Committee of the State's Ministers, the Minister of General Police of the Empire has communicated them to all the Russian Ambassadors and Consuls, in order to make public. 1.

A; DE DUBATCHEFSKY, Russian Consul General. REPORT FROM THE SELECT COMMITTEE ON TITHES 1. Resolved, That it is the opinion of this Com- mittee, that it is expedient to enable ecclesiastical proprietors of tithes to grant leases thereof, so as to bind their successors under due regulations. 2. That it is the opinion of this Committee, that the term of such leases should not exceed fourteen years. 3. That such leases should only be granted with the previous consent of the patron and the Bishop of the diocese. 4. That the consent of the Bishop should not be given until he has been furnished with a certificate upon oath, by a competent Surveyor, to be named by such Bishop, and to be paid by the contracting parties, that the tithe rent or composition proposed is a fair and just equivalent for the tithes so to be leased during the term to be granted. 5. That such leases should only be granted to the proprietors of the land. 6. That in tiny new law to be enacted for this pur- pose, it would be expedient to define who should be considered the proprietors of the land, for the purpose of taking such leases. 7. That the leases to such proprietors of lands should be appurtenant to and run with the land in the nature of a real covenant; and that the occupier under leases now existing shall have the option and the right, on a notice within a year after the date of the lease of the tithes, of retaining the tithes during the continuance of his lease in the land, on payment to the lessee of the tithe rent, or a just proportion thereof. 8. That in case of avoidance of the living, by death or otherwise, a proportion of the rent should be paid to the incumbent, or his representative, up to the time of such avoidance. 9. That the said tithe rent or composition should be recoverable by distress, as if the same were a rent- charge upon the lands: and that the lessee of the tithes shall have a remedy by distress for the tithe rent, against the occupier agreeing to retain the tithe. 10. That the tithe proprietor should have the option of avoiding the lease, in case the tithe rent be in arrear for three calendar months, after notice in writ- ing demanding the same from the lessee, and the rent not paid, nor sufficient distress found upon the pre- mises. 11. That the tithe proprietor should not be re- stricted from recovering the lithe rent or composition by due course of law, in the same manner as he may now recover the value of or composition for tithes, where subtracted. 12. That a general form of a lease or grant should be framed; and that no stamp duly should be payable on such lease or grant, unless the tithe rent or com- position exceed pounds a year. • 13. That the lay- owners of impropriate tithes, being tenants for life and for years, determinable on a life or lives, or tenants in tail, or tenants in fee, subject to be determined by executory devise or shifting use, have the like power of leasing such tithes for any term not exceeding fourteen years. 14. That a like power be given to all corporate bodies, whether lay or spiritual, being owners of im propriate tithes. 15. That no lease shall be valid to bind the suc- cessor, reversioner, or remainder man, where any other consideration is given than the annual tithe rent or composition declared in such lease. 16. That the power of leasing tithes, as it at present by law exists, should not be taken away of diminished. June 18,1816. CORONER'S BILL.

The Stage Coach Regulation Bill was brought up from the House of Commons, and read a first time. The Silver Coinage Bill was read a third time and passed. CATHOLICS OF IRELAND. The Earl of Donough more presented a petition from certain of the Protestant Nobility, Gentry, Clergy, and Freeholders of the county of Gatway, in favour of the Catholic Claims, which his Lordship slated to be most respectably signed.— The pettion was read and ordered to lie on the table.->- The Nob! e Earl then observed, that before he should enter on the proposi- tion which he meant to make to their Lordships, he thought it convenient to anticipate an objection which would probably be made to it on account of the late period of the Session in which he was bringing for- ward a measure of so much difficulty and weight. In answer to that objection, he had to remark, tint it was by no means his desire to bring the House to any immature or hasty decision. His first and only wish at present was, to induce their Lordships to take the subject of the petitions, at an early day of the next Session, into their most serious Consideration. Before he proceeded further, he felt it expedient to state the nature of the Resolution with which he meant to con- clude. It was, that at the end of a long and arduous contest, conducted with admirable skill, perseverance, and glory, and accomplished with unexampled and almost unhoped- for success, it was the incumbent doty of Parliament to conciliate and unite in cordial amity all the subjects of the United Kingdom, as the best and only means of securing the power, the great- ness, and the permanent independence of the empire; that the present state of Ireland, and especially the claims of his Majesty's Catholic subjects, required peculiar and prompt attention ; but as the Session was advanced too far to enter with due effect on so important a question, that it was highly expedient, at an early period of the next Session, to enter m'o a grave inquiry into the nature of the CatholIC disabi- lities, in order to their effectual removal, and thereby restoring to the equal benefits of the British Consti- tution every loyal and faithful member of the commu- nity.— The petitioners came before their Lordships in a becoming manner, humbly staling their grievances, and praying for redress, according to the laws and spirit of that Constitution, for the protection of which they had devoted and were still ready to devote their lives and their utmost means. It was not his desire, nor that Of the petitioners, to bind the House by any pledge; they duly wished for inquiry, and would willingly wait till the next Session for that in- quiry. With a laudable view to conciliate those who thought that some additional security was necessary, the security of what was called " domestic nomina- tion" was now offered by the Catholic Clefgy. The Catholic Bishops and Ciergy proposed— having no doubt of obtaining the consent of the Spiritual Head of the Catholic Church to the proposition— that that Head of the Catholic Church should bind himself to confer his spiritual benediction on whatever person the Catholic Clergy of Ireland might elect as a Bishop; and they proposed that a new oath should be ad- ministered by the electors, by which they should bind themselves not to elect any individual of utilise loyalty they were not assured. Surely this proposi- tion would remove all objections. To him it appeared open to no doubt or cavil. Of the Catholic Clergy, as a body, all persons spoke with the highest respect. He defied any one to state that, during the Sale long war, a single, attempt had been made by any Catholic clergyman in Ireland to foment discontent or rebellion, On the contrary, there were numerous instances of the interposition of the Catholic Clergy of Ireland in support of the laws. He did therefore must strongly recommend, that whenever the subject should be taken into consideration by their Lordships, or when it should previously be taken into consideration, as he trusted it might be, by his Majesty's Government, the domestic nomination should be adopted, as calculated to be satisfactory to all parties— as calculated, on the one hand, to remove the apprehensions entertained by those who had hitherto opposed the concessions to the Catholics, and, on the other, unlike the Veto, not to raise the religious and conscientious scruples of the Catholics themselves. Under the circumstances which he had described, he really hoped that this would be considered a favourable moment to set this question for ever at rest.— The Noble Earl concluded with moving the Resolution he had slated in sub- stance in the commencement of his speech. Lord Longford declared his deckled objection to the motion. He could by no means agree to the pro- priety of their Lordships binding or committing themselves in the manner proposed by the motion of the Noble Earl. Any such pledge he was unable to reconcile with the wisdom or with the deliberative character and dignity of their Lordships. He con- sidered also that it was proper to reflect whether the conduct of the Catholics was such as could entitle them to what they required. Lord Aberdeen observed, that all petitions that were respectfully worded ought to be received with attention. He should feel much disposed to agree with the Noble Earl who brought forward the Re- solutions. He never could perceive any danger in granting the claims in question, and, in his opinion, no time was more fit for such concessions than the present, when the country was at peace with all the world. Earl Bathurst could not agree to the motion. He was astonished to hear their Lordships called on, at this late period of the Session, to bind themselves, as well as many of their friends who were absent, to the consideration of so important a subject. During the former discussions on this question, its friends had often regretted that the time for taking it into con- sideration was unfavourable. He certainly thought the present to be unfavourable, and he would ask, why had the friends of emancipation, as it was called, not brought it on earlier in the Session? It could' not arise from indifference to the question. The absurdity of granting any such pledge was obvious, from the possibility of many of their Lordships altering their opinions during the recess, and the unpleasant situa- tion in which they would then stand. Before any pledge was given, he thought their Lordships and the country should know what they were called to pledge themselves to do His Lordship then entered into a detail of the proceedings of the Clergy in Ire- land, and argued, that while they considered their Church to be independent of the British Crown, it was impossible to accede to their wishes. The Duke of Sussex declared he had not heard one argument that could induce him to alter his deter- mination to support the measure of his Noble Friend, ^ rerCerr:. Miffm CS -} ir.- o:• Resolution went no further than to say, that the '. ,; ns Were of such a nature as entitled them to the t of that House in a future Session. > rd Redesdale contended, that the Very petition en before the House Contained matter for which the motion ought to he rejected. He objected both to the Veto and to domestic nomination ; because they were both illegal, unconstitutional, and mis- chievous. He would never agree to any regulation which went to admit the existence of an Ecclesiastical • power in the kingdom different from that which pre- sided over the Established Church. If the King were to exercise any controul in the appointment of Ca- tholic Priests to the tank of Bishops, it would be ad- mitting their right to Ecclesiastical jurisdiction; and to make any such acknowledgment would be neither more nor less than acknowledging the Roman Catholic religion as an established system of worship Within these realms. Earl Stanhope declared that the Resolution had his most cordial concurrence. His Lordship indulged in some ludicrous . observations on the great importance which see to be attached to the question of the Veto. The Lord Chancellor contended that the motion then before their Lordships was in direct contradiction to the principles of the Constitution of this country,' for it went to the conferring equal rights and privi- leges upon all classes of its inhabitants. He thought it would be highly dangerous and inexpedient in their Lordships to give any pledge upon a subject of so much importance. Upon those grounds, and without entering at all into the general merits of the question, he should give his vote against the present motion. The BISHOP of Norwich said, that with regard to conceding the claims of the Catholics, so far from thinking it would injure the Established Church, in his opinion it would rather tend to give it firmness and stability, because by acting with justice and mo- deration they would conciliate not only the Catholics, but the Protectants. The best security for civil and ecclesiastical liberty was the love and respect of the people; if they were removed, all other securities would prove fallacious. . He was anxious to express his humble but anient wish, that more enlarged ideas of toleration might prevail, which would lay the foun- dation of peace and tranquillity. He was convinced that toleration, in its fullest extent, would never disturb the peace of any State, nor be injurious to the interests of any Church. The House then divided, and the numbers were— Contents present .... 40— Proxies.... " 39— 69 Non- Contents present 37— Proxies.... 36— 73 Majority against the motion — 4 MONDAY, JUNE 24. The Royal Assent by Commission was given to the Paper Duties and the Rape Seed Cakes Bills.— The Gas Light Bill was read a second time. Mr. Brogden and others, from the Commons, brought up the Paper and Pasteboard Duties, the Insolvent Debtors, and the Inland Coals Drawback Bills, which were read the first time. TUESDAY, JUNE 25. The Consolidation of the Exchequers Bill was read the second time. The Gaol Fees Abolition Bill was also read the second time. The Bank Advance, the Irish National Debt, the Hertford College, the Stock Transfer, the Demerara Trade, and the Irish Customs Bills were read a third time and passed. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 29. The Royal Assent, by Commission, was given to the Aliens, the Bank Capital, the Bank Balances, the Demerara Trade, and several other Bills, chiefly pri- vate. The Saving Banks, the Irish Insolvent Debtors, the Leather, the Clergy Residence, the Elgin Marbles, the New Chancery Court, and the Consolidated Fund Bills. were read the first time. HOUSE OF COMMONS. FRIDAY, JUNE 21. The Stage Coach Regulation Bill was read a third time and passed. SAVING BANKS. The Saving Banks Bill went through a Committee, and a long conversation ensued on the clause allowing paupers having money in such Banks to receive pa- rochial relief, the omission of which was moved by Mr. Frankland Lewis, when the House divided, and the numbers were— For the clause, 34— Against it, 21— Majority, 13. The Stamp Duties Amendment Bill, the Mutiny Act Amendment Bill, the Spirits Duty Bill, and the Claremont Estate Bill, were read a second time. SATURDAY, JUNE 22. The Clergy Non- residence Bill was read a second time, and committed for Monday. On the third reading of the Insolvent Debtors Bill, General Thornton objected to the clause of the Bill which gave a power of imprisonment for five years in cases of debtors where gross fraud was proved to exist. Sir C. Monck and Mr. Lockhart supported the clause. Mr. Serjeant Best also supported the clause. He was convinced that the effect of the late Insolvent Act had been nothing less than an encouragement to swindling. It had, in fact, introduced riot and con- fusion into our prisons, where hundreds who had come up to London to get while- washed, as they termed it, had lived riotously and luxuriously, whilst their unfortunate creditors were defrauded of their pro- perty. Mr. W. Wynne wished, in future, care should be taken that persons about to take the benefit of the Act, should be confined within the walls of the prison, and not have the benefit of the rules. The Bill was then read a third time and passed. MONDAY, JUNE 24. SAVING BANKS. The Report of the Saving Banks Bill was ordered to be taken into further consideration. Mr. G. Rose proposed a clause, that a pauper hav- ing money in a Saving Bank should not on that ac- count be precluded from receiving parochial relief. Mr. Calcraft opposed the clause, which he said was negatived by the Committee on Friday last. It was unusual to propose a clause that had been rejected by a Committee, especially at so late a period. The clause Was utterly unjust, as it went to provide that the pauper could not apply his money in the Saving Bank to his immediate relief. The Chancellor of the Exchequer supported the clause, and suggested that the Magistrates should have a controul in admitting to parochial relief accord- ing to the sum the pauper had in the Saving Bank. Sir C. Monck did not think the clause admissible. The Poor Laws were already productive of evils enough, but this clause would be increasing them. It would be an encouragement to pauperism, and to apply for parochial relief. Lord Binning supported the clause, and said it had been negatived in so thin a House, that it was only fair to bring it forward again. It took away every objection that had been made to the original Bill, Mr. Lockhart did not think the clause sufficient to remove the objections. He. thought it would produce a " new character, with one eye on the parish and the other on the Saving Bank. Lord Compton defended the clause, Mr. Hurt Davis opposed the clause, as not going far enough, . ' Mr. Wilberfarce specie in favour of the clause. Tire House divided on the Clause, when there were — For it. .19; against it, 25;- Majority for it, 31, The Stone Bottle Duty Bill was read a third lime, and passed, TUESDAY, JUNE 25. \ The Hertford College Bill went through a Com- mittee, the Report was deceived, and the Bill read a third-, time and passed. The Loan Charge Bill was read a third time, and passed. The Claremont Estate Bill was read a third time, and passed. The Coroner's Bill was read a third time and passed. | CATHOLIC CLAIMS. Sir J. C. Hippesley brought up the Report of the Select Committee, on the Catholic Petitions. The Hon. Baronet proceeded to make a variety of ob- servations on the subject of the reports which had been drawn up by the Committee for inquiring into the connexion between the Catholics of England and the Papal and other States. On domestic nomination, he might say, it was like giving a direct negative to the , Crown. On the motion that the Report be laid on the table; Mr. Canning declared his opinion that the question I ought to be thoroughly understood before it. was brought into the House as a subject of legislation. The doing away of many errors might prevent much ob- struction to the measure. He was more and more con- vinced that a boon was necessary to the Catholics ; it was expedient that their affairs should be brought to a final settlement, and he should be one of the fore- most for giving them that boon, having had it re- stricted under such regulations as the Parliament might think fit. Sir H. Parnell entered into a variety of statements to show the condition of the Catholic Bishops at pre- sent, compared with former times. Lord Castlereagh thought it better for the House to leave the election of Bishops to be discussed at some future period. - He did not wish any interference to be made with the conduct of the See of Rome. He had no objection to the method of election " by Chap- ter; indeed, in order to have a general understanding, he should rather agree to it with cordiality. He was confident that the Report would do much good. On the whole, he did not think that it was necessary to discuss the subject at present. Mr. Horner congratulated those on the side of the Catholics on the marked manner in which the Right Hon. Gentleman lately acceded to the Administra- tion had expressed himself in their favour. He hoped that in another Session the measure would be taken up formally and officially by those who held the high- est situations in his Majesty's Council, and that the scene of trifling, which had been so common for seve- ral years past, would at last disappear. The Report was then ordered to be printed, and to be laid on the table. General Thornton rose to move for the building two free Churches in commemoration of the battles of Waterloo and Trafalgar. The Chancellor of the Exchequer had no objection to any economical plan of increasing the number of churches; but thought that such churches as the gallant General proposed would be too expensive, and would not be appropriate on such an occasion. It was in the contemplation of his Majesty's Government to bring forward a plan for extending the building of churches throughout the kingdom at an early period next Session. The motion was negatived without a division. On the motion of Mr. Rose the Saving Banks Bill was read a third time, and passed. The Attorneys- General brought in a Bill for regu- lating the practice of Surgeons throughout England, which was read a first time and ordered to be printed. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 26. The Elgin Marbles Bill, Consolidated Fund Bill, Chancery Courts Bill, Beer License Bill, Leather Bill, Spirit Intercourse Bill, Clergy Penalty Bill, and Stamp Bill, were read a third time, and passed.— The House adjourned to Monday. LONDON. Advices from the Vistula state, that the Emperor of Russia having invited the King of Sweden and the Crown Prince to join the Holy Alliance, they had both acceded to the invitation. The Grand Polish Diet is to be opened next September, by the Emperor Alexander in person. The celebration of the anniversary of the battle of Waterloo gave rise to some interesting circum- stances at Brussels. A letter from that city says, " At the dinner given in the Allee Verte it was interesting to see the foreign soldiers of various nations who had remained in the hospital. At the same tables with. our soldiers were seen Prussians, English, Scotch, Hanoverians, and some Cossacks, all covered with honourable wounds. The greatest part of them were brought in carriages. Near the table, trophies were erected, composed of cuirasses, helmets, muskets, and sabres, all found in the field of battle. The whole city was magnificently illu- minated. The number of persons gone to Waterloo this morning to attend divine service is so great that carriages are not to be had; 300 francs have been offered in vain for one." Accounts from Constantinople contain informa- tion of revolts and disturbances in different parts of the Ottoman Empire. In some of the ports of Asia Minor piratical vessels have been fitted out, which commit numerous depredations in the Levant and the Archipelago, particularly on English and Russian vessels. The Grand Signior is adopting measures to put down these Corsairs. The French papers supply some fresh particulars of the late horrible massacre perpetrated by the Algerine banditti at Bona. The following extract of a letter from Leghorn, containing the testimony of a person who was an eye- witness of this murder- ous transaction, is certainly the most interesting and authentic account that has hitherto appeared:— EXTRACT OF A PRIVATE LETTER. I LEGHORN, June 4.— M. Jaques Villano, owner of the felucca St. Louis, who left this port in the beginning of February, has just returned, after three days sail from Bona, a small town in the Regency of Algiers, where he had been engaged in the coral fishery. The following is his depo- sition :—'" On the 23d of May, 350 vessels of dif- ferent nations had been, according to custom, near Bona, engaged in the coral fishery. At sun- rise the sound of cannon was heard, and at the same moment about ">( 100 armed men, some of them on horseback, rushed out of the town, and fell upon the sailors belonging to those vessels who happened to be on shore, and massacred them all, without making any distinction as to the flags to which they belonged. I escaped the massacre, because being fortunately at some distance from the town, I had time to embark, as well as the three passen- gers who have accompanied me hither; after having left behind us all our fishing implements, provisions, & c. So far as I could observe, I calculate that about 100 vessels have become the prey of the Algerines, with the greater part of their crews; and that about 300 men have been killed in the sudden attack of these barbarians. The brother of the English Vice Consul residing at Bona, saved himself by flight, after having been wounded. I am ignorant of the fate of the Vice Consul. It is evident that the Government of Algiers has been accessary to this unexpected aggression, because the cannon of the forts of Bona continued afterwards to fire on the vessels," A letter, under date Leghorn, June 7, contains a further:, account of the atrocities of the piratical depredations of the African States:—" " i he tartan the Holy Trinity has been cut out from under the battery which protected her near Ostia, in the Roman territory. The crew succeeded in effecting their escape ashore. The vessel which committed this piracy was a; Barbary corsair; with a black flag," — A letter from Genoa, of the 8th inst. also says, " The consequence of the late treaties appears to be the determination of the Barbary pirates to carry on a war of extermination against the Christians. The consternation excited by the lute massacres at Bona not only lasts, but is increased by the certainty that the unfortunate victims who may have escaped from the butchery must fall into the hands of the pirates at sea. When will Europe rouse front this fatal lethargy ? How long will she suffer herself to be debased and insulted by bands of wretches, who subsist Only by rapine? It is a lamentable reproach and scandal to social order." By the last accounts from the Brazils, we learn that a very serious commotion had taken place among the Negro Slaves at Bahia, where, collecting in considerable numbers, they burnt tour estates, The Duke Dos Arcos, Governor of the Province; at length quelled the tumult by. calling out the military, but several lives were lost. These com- motions in the Brazils are by no means unfrequent; another not long ago occurred in Pernambuco, when the slaves defeated 500 regulars. Still the Slave Trade is there carrying on with greater vigour than ever, though such an accumulation of dan- gerous element must' eventually produce serious consequences. It is to. the general state of dis- affection prevailing among the Portuguese Slaves that the large importation of troops from Lisbon is now attributed.. The plague is now desolating Alexandria, and the shores of the Gulph of Salonica— the corsairs which are now at sea in abundance, in these lati- tudes, in defiance of Lord Exmouth's treaties of peace and amity, will of course increase the danger of the introduction of this calamity into various parts of Europe. The Princess Charlotte and Prince Leopold ho- noured Covent Garden Theatre with their presence on Saturday evening, for the express purpose of seeing the performance of Lady Macbeth by Mrs. Siddons. Her Royal Highness appeared com- pletely recovered trout her late illness. She seemed highly delighted with the performance of that inimitable actress, Mrs. Siemens, frequently ap- plauding as loud as any other individual of the audience. As soon as the Tragedy terminated, God save the King was sung, and was followed by Rule Britannia, The marriage of the Princess Mary and the Duke of Gloucester is, postponed, and another day has not yet been fixed for it. It may be delayed for three weeks or a mouth. The reason is, that great alterations and improvements are to be made at Bagshot Park, which must be completed before the marriage, the mansion there being intended for the reception of the Royal couple immediately after the ceremony! .' A considerable number of workmen- have been employed tor the last fortnight. The order of the apartments will' be much changed, and the greater part of them entirely new furnished. The Duke's house in Piccadilly will remain nearly as it is. "•'" - ••'• • » -:•• A letter from Dover of Sunday, says, " Three packets sailed this morning for Calais with about seventy passengers', amongst them Mr.. Brougham, M. P. The number embarking here each day, during the last week, has been similar, and of ail descriptions of persons, with many families of distinction, and on an average, more than ten car- riages each day; about hah the same number of passengers, at present, return from as go to France. The Earl of Sandwich and family have just arrived from Calais in the Lady Jane James packet." Letters have been received overland from Bombay to the middle of February, which announce the arrival there from Batavja of Major General Sir Miles Nightingale, and that lie had assumed the command of the Bombay army, in pursuance of his appointment. . A piece has been cut from his Majesty's ship Victory ( Lord Nelson's flag- ship) to make two snuff- boxes— one tor the Prince of Cobourg, the other for the Duke of Gloucester. It would seem that Marshal Soult has been for some time resident at Bristol. The Bristol Journal says, " It is generally believed that Marshal Soult, who had previously taken up his residence in this city at the White Lion Inn, embarked from hence in the William Henry, for Boston, in America, on the 18th instant." The Timandra, Black man, from America to Newcastle, with tobacco, was only sixteen days on the voyage from land- to land. The weather in America has been much the same as here, and superstition attributes the cold to spots en the sun. — Several persons returned to England in the Timandra, who had gone to America to better their condition; but found it the same state as this country with regard to trade and employment. Much of the public Uneasiness about receiving shillings and sixpences not ascertained to be of the real currency, is removed by the following fact:— A respectable shopkeeper of Liverpool inclosed, to the Master of the Mint, seven plain shillings, some of which, lie judged, Were Mint shillings, but the rest were, in his opinion, doubtful; and two sixpences, the best in circulation; " Upon an examination of these coins by the officers of the Mint," says the Deputy Master, " they appeared to them to be such as they should certainly receive in exchange for the new silver coin proposed to be issued. They are diminished in weight; but, upon an assay made of their fineness, they have been found to be good- silver, and such as may be fairly called Tower shillings. Base or copper flats, and foreign coin," he adds, " cannot be re- ceived." Such is the answer of the officers of the Mint; and it will remove all doubt, if indeed any doubt could be entertained, as to what coin will be received, and what rejected. And it is to be ob served, that the silver which will be refused in ex- change for the new coin, is that which tradesmen have for years refused, at least scrupled, to receive. The Magistrates of Liverpool have, in several instances, fined shopkeepers in the penalty of 501. for refusing in payment shillings which were proved to be the current coin of the realm. A gentleman just returned from Manchester, asserts, that the manufactories of that town and neighbourhood are in such a sinking state, that full 25,000 workmen are out of employment; and at Huddersfield, the two market days prior to his departure from that place, not more than fifty packs of wool were sold, when, in more prosperous times, ; the transfer of 1000 packs, would not becon- sidered as any extraordinary mart. On Saturday morning the body of a gentleman, named James Fleming, who threw himself off Black friars bridge on Sunday se'nnight, about nine o'clock, in the presence of an immense number of people, was taken Up on Bank- side, and immedi- ately conveyed to the Waterman's Arms, for the inspection of the Coroner. The brother of the unfortunate gentleman recognised him by a gold watch that was found on him, which was in his pocket, and also a quantity of money. MELANCHOLY ACCIDENT.— On Sunday evening, about eight o'clock, a boat with six men and four women, of genteel appearance, approached London Bridge, in its way down the River, from an ex- cursion on a party of pleasure, in the course of the day, as far as Richmond. The tide was going down rapidly ; and a waterman, in a sculler, per- ceiving their intention to go through the Bridge, went alongside, and apprised them of the danger of such an attempt in the then state of the River. The women were alarmed, and were, at. their re- quest, put ashore above Bridge; after which the six men in the boat rowed back, and made an effort to shoot through the middle arch, when unfortu- nately the boat went down head foremost. Four of the party were washed off and drowned. The other two stuck to the boat, which came up immediately, and, with assistance from the shore, which was full of spectators, were saved. One of the persons lost was brother of one of the survivors. At Marlborough- street Office, on Wednesday, Charlotte Farmer, an abandoned woman, was charged by a gentleman's servant, whom she en- ticed home to her lodging, with robbing him of all the clothes he wort., as well as his money.— The complainant, whose case excited considerable laughter, said, about eleven o'clock at night he went with prisoner to a house in Kell- mell- buildings, Orchard- street, Portman- square. About midnight he was surprised by a tall grenadier, who inquired his business there. He got up in confusion ; and, to his utter astonishment, found ail his clothes and about 80s. in silver gone. The lady would have had him go into the street naked ; but the gallant soldier, more compassionate, furnished him with an old pair of trowers, and a good- natured Irish- man next door lent him an old coat. In this pre- dicament he repaired home to his master's house in Bury- street, Bloomsbury ; and, after changing his dress, procured a constable and caused her to be taken into custody,— The prisoner was fully committed for trial.

The Paris papers of the 20th, which have been received, furnish some further particulars' of the late lamentable occurrences at Bona, in the Me- diterranean. There remains no doubt but that the Algerine and Tunisian Authorities, if not the actual perpetrators of the disgraceful massacres which have taken place, were the abettors, and perhaps instigators. We are surprised that, at a time when the European Governments appear cordially uniting to extend the principles of civi- lization and personal liberty throughout the world, and when they have, with almost one voice, pro- tested against the inhuman traffic which has so long disgraced the policy of the Colonies, we, the first and firmest of the friends of liberty, should make treaties and conventions with the unprincipled, incorrigible, and piratical gang of thieves of Africa, and thereby sanction the lawless power they exer- cise. Surely this last act of treachery will draw on them the retributive hand of justice; and if they are too polluted with the practice of every crime to be past the hopes of reformation, force will dis- possess them of the soil, and rid the world of such a nursery of robbers— such a banditti Of blood- thirsty tyrants, and destroy a slavery which is in no one feature less shocking to humanity than that of the West Indies. Nothing can be more impolitic than sanctioning the ransom of the unhappy captives which are stolen and detained; it makes the reward gold for human blood; it gives an incitement to their crimes, and determines all. their pursuits to be warfare against the unoffending and helpless, as a pre- liminary to the receipt of that for which alone their enter prizes are undertaken. It is stated, that, on the firing of a gun, 5000 men, nearly all soldiers, appeared from the fort, and that the massacre was effected at the place of worship in Bona. Few Englishmen are supposed to have suffered, but the English Consul, it is said, has been destroyed. The naval force of this country in the Mediter- ranean would, without difficulty or risk, relieve the world from this nest of pirates ; and we would rather that Lord Exmouth should be known to these African robbers as a commander than as an ambassador. The force of his commands can effectually serve the countries insulted by these barbarians, while his talents in the Cabinet, however brilliant and apparently successful, can have no other effect than to produce a confidence, which the pirate's will convert, by a sudden breach of all promise, to their advantage. Lord Exmouth has arrived at Portsmouth, with his fleet, from the Mediterranean. We trust, how- ever, that his Lordship will speedily be sent back again,, to avenge, with the thunder of our navy, the violated treaties and the murdered Christians at Bona. . . A new method lias been lately adopted in all the King'sdock- yards, with regard, to the means of preserving such ships as may in future be built or repaired. It consists in the whole of the ships on the. storks, or in dock, being completely under cover by means of a large and capacious shed being erected over them, to keep off the effects of the sun and weather: win- lows and skylights are placed on each side and the top, by which at all times a free circulation of air can' take place, and the men employed are kept dry. The massy silver tables and grates, and the look- ing glasses framed in silver, which were brought from Hanover, immediately before that country was invaded by the French, and were placed in Windsor Castle, have been sent on board a ship in the. River, to be returned to the Palace of Hereu- hausen. COURT OF KING'S BENCH, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 26. THE KING. W: SMITH. The defendant claimed to be Mayor of Colchester, to which office lie was elected and sworn in by the previous • Mayor, of the name of Hedge, who had himself been chosen in a Court of Aldermen the year preceding; of which Court two persons named Abell and Smythies formed a part, and without whose presence, as completing a quo- rum, no business could have been legally transacted. It afterwards appeared that they had not been duly elected - Aldermen, and consequently that Hedge, not being dejure ' Mayor, could nut preside * and assist at the Court by which the defendant was elected his successor, and . thai Ihe de- . fendant's election was of course void.— This question came. on to be argued under a 01.0 warranto to- day; and . Mr. Spankie for the Crown, from the words of the Ctwter,- argued that five was the Minimum of Aldermen required by the words of the Charter to be. present at the election of the Mayor: they were an integral and definite body composed of eleven ; and deducting the two nominees,- there would remain nine, of whom Ave, the majority, must attend, in order to make an election valid. The Court pat it to Mr. Scarlett, on the other side, whe- ther he meant to dispute this point; and an answer being given in the relative; Mr. Spankie proceeded- to the next question, whether, under the plea that Hedge was not Mayor at the time of the appointment of the defendant, the prosecutor could be allowed to give evidence to show' that Abell and Smythies had not been duly chosen Alder- men. He argued that the plea was to be understood as putting in issue the right of Hedge to hold that office; and not the mere point whether lie de facto exercised the functions of Mayor, it was true that as against all per sons but the Corporation, his election was valid, but the Corporation was bound to preserve its own integrity and purity as against its own members. He quoted many authorities upon this point from to 4 Burr. 2113. Cowp. 5ot). I Sir. 625. ca. temp. Hardw; IEI>, & c. His third and last point was as to the power of the Court to question the right of Hedge, after a lapse of more than six years, and after the stat. 32 Geo. 111. c. 58. he contended that HO sound objection could be urged against the interposition of the Court. Mr. Scarlett went over the authorities cited on the other side, maintaining that they did not support the argument; he submitted, that under the mere plea of fact, evidence- could not be received to impeach Hedge's election ; that in ordinary cases, after the death of a party who had bet*, an office de facto, the Court would not inquire whether he, had exercised it de jure; and that there was nothing in this transaction to warrant a deviation from the practice. Thirdly, he contended, that under the terms of the Charter of Colchester, the election of Hedge was good, us the majority of five votes was not necessary, even admitting those of Abell and Smythies to be bad. The Court, however, was of opinion, after reading the words by which the Court was constituted, that a ma- jority of five Aldermen was requited for the formation_ of a Court, with authority to elect a Mayor; and as Hedge had not been so elected, and as the defendant claimed under him, his title was void. Without coming to any decision upon the other points urged, their Lordships therefore unanimously gave judgment in favour of the Crown. The case, which was a Special one, reserved from the Essex Assizes, was argued by Mr. Spankie, who was the junior Counsel in the cause, with a force and perspicuity indicative of great legal talent and research, and displayed an ability which cannot fail to render him a brilliant orna- ment of his profession and of this circuit." Why the junior Counsel was not entrusted With the cause on the other side does not appear— it could not have arisen from want of confidence in Mr Knox's powers— he is the great friend of Serjeant Runnington,( the soi:- disant Recorder) and wan the Counsel consulted and employed to draw the indict- ments for the libel of the Guild- Gibbet— Mace Detention— and other heinous offences against the dignity of the Bo- rough Bench.— Immediately after the decision of the Court, notice was given to Serjeant Runnington, that it he did not resign his office of Recorder.( which the Court had previ- ously compelled him to Undertake to do should their deci- sion be against Smith) the Court would be moved for an attachment against Mm.

Sarah Green.— This case, which was determined- last week, is of considerable importance to the public as well as the parties more immediately concerned, namely, the London traders annually frequenting Bury Fair, inas- much as it involved in its decision: tire legality as well as future existence of that celebrated mart, so much frequented by the ' nobility and gentry from different parts of the kingdom, and which has been held annu- ally for three weeks, and often longer,. on and near the Angel Hill, in that town ( for aught appears to the con- trary) anterior to the time of William the Conqueror. It came before the Court in., the shape of a special case, arising out of a conviction, under the Hawker's and Pedlar's Act, of Mrs. Green, a grocer- and oil- dealer, who lives in London, and who has for a num- ber of years kept a booth at and. vended goods during Bury Fair; and which conviction was made by Tho- mas Foster, Esq. Alderman and Chief Magistrate of Bury, in October last. He adjudged that the fair was a legal fair for six days only, as proclaimed by himself, namely, for three days before and three days after St. Matthew; and that after the expiration of the said six days, ending the 5th of October, there existed no public mart, market, or fair, legally established for the sale of goods.— To this conviction Mrs. Green ( or more properly the London traders, who made it a common cause) appealed to the Bury . St Edmund's Borough Sessions, relying on the fact, that there bad for time immemorial existed a fair by prescription, to the end of the month of October, and by the Alderman's per- mission ( who by the charter is clerk of the fairs and markets, and has the tolls of the same) into the month of November, and which permission had actually been given last year by that same Alderman himself, to a date subsequent to the day for which he soon after Convicted defendant for selling goods, . The Bury Sessions affirmed the conviction, subject to the opinion of the Court of King's Bench upon a special case, stating all the facts which now came before the Court. The Court quashed the conviction, by which the lega- lity of the fair is of course established, and its existence ensured in future years. ... ; r- | i « lid to as an se ' er DO c'h ell th w- ck he " at he of or Dn fT td1 of-' re ill/ id k- ht ff lit iu • it- Si. to i* • HI Of :< r ii- ic : d * re it* P" • ie- r.,' r,: Kl > u ' y ic nt i. id ie N ie id iy fc. u d IP i » i- ' X. e d r - - COLCHESTER, SATURDAY, JUNE 29, 1816. On Sunday next, the 30th instant, in the after- noon, a Sermon,. for the benefit of the Manningtree and Mistley National School, will be preached at Manningtree, by the Rev. H. Hutton, B. D. Rector of Beaumont, & c. & c. The Rev. Dr. Scott, of Southminster, who was for many years the Private Secretary and Chaplain to the late Lord Nelson, has been presented to the Valuable living of Catterwick, near Richmond, in Yorkshire, in the gift of the Crown. An issue is directed by the Lord Chancellor, rhich will be tried at the ensuing Assizes, before Special Jury, to ascertain the amount of compen- sation due to Mr. Samuel Weeley, from the Com- missioners of Barracks, for damage and injury done to the soil whereon the barracks at Weeley were built. By an Act lately passed, the ballot and enrol- ment for the- Local Militia are suspended for the space of one year from the present period. The public are greatly indebted to Mr. Lockhart, and the other Members of Parliament, who are en- deavouring to remedy, or lessen, the mischiefs of the Insolvent Debtors' Act, a measure which adds considerably to the distresses of the trading part of the community. That it must have this effect is plain from what is positively known of its opera- tion.— Debts to the amount of five millions six hundred thousand pounds have been annulled upon Cessions of goods amounting to fifteen hundred pounds— about a quarter of a. farthing per pound. It is ordered that Midshipmen and Masters' Mates, who have qualified for the rank Of Lieutenant, and also Second Masters, or those who have acted as Masters in the Navy, may in future be deemed fit candidates for the situation of Mates of Revenue croizers.

The Second Mates in the first class of these vessels are to receive 451. in the second class, 401. per annum. The following melancholy accident occurred on Sunday evening, on the river Swale, near Faver- sham, Kent. A party of persons, chiefly females, had spent the day in a water excursion to Whitsta- ble, • and had arrived at Faversham Creek's Mouth, on their return home, when it was proposed to pro- ceed to Harty- Ferry House to take tea. After stay- ing there until near nine o'clock, they all ( being ten in number) re- embarked in a small boat, and, on going off to their vessel, which lay at anchor near the opposite shore, the boat upset. The fer- ryman crossing the river in his beat at the same time, with eight passengers, hastened to their assist- ance, ' and succeeded in rescuing two men from their dangerous situation. They also dragged into their boat the lifeless body of one of the women. Pro- ceeding in their humane endeavours to save the others, their own boat, being under a pressure of sail, and keeling stilt more from their reaching over the side, was almost tilled with water. Another party of young men immediately pushed off from the ferry- way, in another boat, and happily suc- ceeded in saving the ferryman and the whole of his passengers, and also the two young men who were in the first boat. The. remainder, viz. one man, six females, and an infant, met a watery grave. Susan Bruty has been committed to Bury gaol, by J. T. H Elwes, Esq. the Rev. R. C. Barnard, and the Rev. B. B. Syer, charged on suspicion of having wilfully and maliciously set tire to a build- ing belonging to John Shelton, of Clare, on the 14th instant. An Inquest was taken at the Chelmer public- house, at. the Bason, in the parish of Heybridge, on Saturday last, on view of the body of David Chenea, aged seven years, who was found drowned • in the navigation on Thursday preceding. Verdict —: Accidentally Drowned. Another Inquest was taken at the Royal Oak, in Great Stambridge, on Monday, on view of the body of Robert Scarf, aged six years, who was found drowned in the water of a pond in that parish on the preceding Friday. Verdict — Accidentally Drowned. The Third Anniverary Meeting of the Hinckford Hun- . dred Brunch Bible Society was held on . Thursday, in a • spacions double barn, neatly fitted up for the purpose, . belonging to . Mr. Baines, on the Rayne road, near Brain- - tree. Notwithstanding- the unfavourable appearance of the, weather in the morning, the assemblage was numerous, in which was included many families of the first respect- ability in th? vicinity.— The Report of the proceeding's of the Society for the lust year was read by the President, Colonel Astle, preceded by an introductory sketch of those of the Pare . it Institutions. Since the establishment of this Branch Society in F< 13, it lias remitted to the Colches- ter and East Essex Auxiliary Society, l, 35fel. of which 4- tfil. was in its last year; and it has issued above 2,500 copies of the Holy Scriptures in its district. Numbers of copies more are known to be yet wanting, which will afford ample scope for its domestic labours, SPECIAL COMMISSION AT ELY. THURSDAY, JUNE. 20. W. Beamiss the younger, and J. Lavender, stood in- dicted for having, on Wednesday, the 22d of May last, feloniously stolen and carried away from the dwelling- house of the Rev. .

They Were all found Guilty.— Aaron Chevill and William Bea- miss were also- capitally convicted of a robbery from the persou- of Henry Tanstey, in taking from him, by putting him in fear, two 11. notes. FRIDAY, JUNE 21. John Easy, John Walker, George Crowe, Richard Ni- cholas, William Jefferson, Wyburn Wilson, and Hubert Butcher, were placed at the bar, and arraigned for having, on the night of the 22d of May last, in the parish of Little port, feloniously stolen various articles of grocery and drapery, together with three promissory notes of the value of one pound each, from the dwelling- house of Rebecca Waddelow, and by causing fear in the said Rebecca Wad- delow and others.

After this, from twenty to thirty prisoners were seve- rally put to tile bar, and indicted for having committed various felonies and misdemeanours at Littleport on the 22d, 23d, and 24th of. May last. Some of them were al- lowed to traverse till the next Assizes, and the remainder having signified their wish to be tried immediately, Mr. Gurney stated to the Court, that in the opinion of himself and his Learned Friends, sufficient had already been done for the purposes of justice and example. As to the prisoners at the bar, they were desirous that every one of ' them should be enlarged, on giving a small security for their appearance on a future day. Mr. Justice Abbot then addressed the prisoners as follows:— Prisoners at the bar— The learned Gentlemen who have appeared here on the behalf of the public, to conduct the prosecution against the very numerous offenders who were brought for justice here, have in the exercise of their discretion given you the opportunity of returning to so- ciety, without being subject to take your trial for the bills which have been found against you, on you own security, and the security of such friends as you may find, to appear here at a future time, accompanied with an assurance to you, that if you shall conduct your » elves quietly, soberly, and peaceably, you shall never again be called upon. I trust the very great lenity which they have displayed on this, occasion will have its due wirgnt upon your minds,- aud that, on your return to your homes, you will not only conduct yourselves quietly, but warn your friend* and neighbours to behave in like manner.

O'er lofty moutantains roaming, O'er bleak perenuial snows, Where cataracts are foaming, And raging north wind blows; Where savage wolves are prowling, And famish'd eagles fly; Where tempests loud are howling, Beneath the arctic sky. There at the peep of morning, Begirt with dewy tears, Wild weeds her brows adorning, Bold Enterprise appears; Whist young- ey'd Expectation Still points to visions new, See panting Emulation Her fleeting steps pursue. List! list! celestial Virgin And, oh! the vow record From every care emerging I pledge this solemn word; By deserts, caves, and fountains, While life while health remains O'er Lapland's icy mountains, O'er Afric's burning plains; Or midst the darksome wonders, That earth's vast caves conceal Where subterraneous thunders, Primeval fires reveal; Where bright or matches lustre, The lethal flowers unfold, And ' midst the beauteous cluster, Shines efflorescent gold; In every varied station, Whate'er my fate may be, My hopes, my expectation, Are still to follow thee : When age, with sickness blended, Shall stop this gay career; And death, though still suspended, Shalt seem to linger near ; Ev'n then, in Visions fleeting, May thy fair form be nigh, And still thy votary greeting, Receive his parting sigh; And tell a matchless story Of some new world of bliss, Eclipsing all the glory Thou promised'st him in this. BONAPARTE AND HIS ATTENDANTS. It is now stated that General Bertrand has ex- pressed a wish to return to Europe at the expiration of a year ( for which period only, he says, he pledged himself to remain with Bonaparte) for the purpose of attending to the education of his children. It was experted, in consequence, when the Havannah sailed, lie would be sent to the Cape of Good Hope, in the Phaeton, for Lord Charles Somerset to pro- vide him with a passage to Europe. It is a known fact, that the behaviour of Bonaparte towards Ma- dame Bertrand had, for some time, been marked with that coarseness and asperity known to be so easily excited in him by his dependants, upon any discovery of their defection in attachment to his person and service. He actually forbade her to ap- pear at his table, unless specially invited, though he knew she had no table of her own provided.— General Gorgan did not sign the paper which pledged him to stay with Bonaparte during his cap- tiw y, until after considerable deliberation, which was not at all approved of by Bonaparte, though he had affected to bid all his followers not to consi- der themselves as being shackled by the situations they held towards him. It is further said, in con- tradiction to former accounts, that Bonaparte fre- quently speaks of all his campaigns, except that of Waterloo; and when that one is noticed, the loss of it is invariably attributed by him to a treason- able panic. Colonel Wilkes, ( the late Governor), previous to his leaving St. Helena, had a conver- sation with Bonaparte, which lasted an hour and a half— a circumstance that was considered the more extraordinary, as he had for some time shewn a steady disinclination to converse more than a few minutes at one time with any person; and he had, likewise, discontinued taking exercise in those limits which he knew would subject him to the surveillance of Captain Popplewell, of the 53d Regiment, who commands at the advanced posts. This new regimen, the product of his own per- turbed state of mind, had given him a very pallid look previous to the sailing of the Havannah. It will be remembered, that Bertrand was included by the King of France in the Ordinance of the 24th of July last, as being charged with waging war against France and the Government; and that his subse- quent condemnation was founded upon a letter which he wrote to the Duke of Fitzjames, ottering fealty and allegiance. Bertrand says, in reply to this, that his letter was dated on the 19th of April, and was written to the Duke of Fitzjames when the Coinpte de Lille ( Louis XVIII.) was in England ; that it could afford no proof of his treason to Louis XVIII. as it promised fealty only to whoever might be chosen to the head of the Government by the voice of the b Tench people; and it was not this vo re, he says, that placed the present King on the throne. The cavalcade passed through the Carousel; it proceeded along the quay of L'Ecole, the Pont- Neuf, and at length arrived at Notre Dame. All the houses were, ill the same mariner as cn the pre- ceding day, elegantly ornamented. The white flag was flying every where, and in all places were Writ- ten— Vive le Roi! Vivent les Bourbons ! whith were continually repeated with shouts of enthu- siasm. The crowd was immense, and all places which could be hired were engaged at a large price. The Royal Family, and those who accompanied them, entered the choir, while a vivat was performed in the great orchestra. A profound silence shortly after succeeded, and the marriage ceremony commenced. This being concluded, and the Act of Marriage being regularly signed, the Royal cavalcade returned in the same order. New discharges of artillery announced the return of the King to the Palace at half past three o'clock. Innumerable crowds pressed round the balcony, where the King and Royal Family ap- peared some moments after their arrival, amidst the loudest acclamations. During this time the sports prepared in the Champs- Elysees attracted a vast crowd ; shows of every kind were exhibited ; groups of dancers were collected round numerous orchestras ; the fountains of wine flowed in abundance, and refreshments were supplied. These amusements continued from three o'clock until night. The attention of all was directed towards the temple of Hymen, whose four sides and colonnades, sparkling with fire, displayed a number of inge- nious emblems. The Royal Family then sat down to & grand ban- quet laid out for them in the Great Hall, where numbers of persons were permitted to walk round. Fresh groups were continually passing through the gardens and the adjacent streets, preceded by white flags, and crying out— Vive le Roi! the rallying word during the whole of the festival The marriage ceremony of the Duke and Duchess of Berry has lately been the chief topic of the Paris papers. All that is grand in religion, imposing in military array, costly and splendid in Court luxury, seem to have been combined on this occasion. In the procession from the Tuileries to the Metro- politan Church, there were twenty- three carriages, each drawn by eight horses, belonging tothe King, and thirteen carriages, drawn by the same number of horses, belonging to the Count d'Artois. Of the circumstances attending this ceremony, a private letter gives the following further particulars " The morning of Sunday ( the lGth) was conse- crated to the procession of the Fete de Dieu. Post- ing bills had long been stuck throughout Paris, announcing through what streets the processiou of the Holy Sacrament would pass, and inviting the parishioners to decorate their houses and place reposoirs, i. e. mock chapels, at convenient dis- tances, where the emblem of the deity might rest in performing the weary round. Accordingly the inhabitants stripped their beds and windows ot their curtains, sheets, and counterpanes ; and the floors of the hearth- rugs and carpets ; and these were suspended in proper and awful solemnity in the fronts of their houses! An immense tribe of priests and servitors, in all kinds of gaudy dresses, resembling nothing but London sweeps on the 1st of May, sallied forth with flags, crucifixes, & c. to thebeat of drum; the National Guard lined the way, with each a bunch of flowers stuck in their muskets ; last followed the Holy Sacrament, borne by a priest walking under a canopy, precisely re- sembling an English four- post bedstead, with the sacking cut out. At certain intervals the priest elevated the Host, and children crowned with gar atids strewed flowers in the way, and the multitude fell down on their marrow- boues in all due reve- rence. At four in the evening the King made his entry, with the Duke and Duchess of Berry, and the Duchess d'Angouleme. All Paris was turned inside out to view the new Duchess ; and the day, which had been showery, cleared up in time, and rendered the scene amazinely brilliant. All eyes were fixed upon the young Duchess; she appeared excessively fatigued, and pale as death; she is re- markably lair, with very light flaxen hair ; she has fine eyes, but is by no means beautiful, not even pretty. Illuminations were general in the evening. This morning such a scene of riot, tumult, and confusion took place as is seldom witnessed. Six thousand tickets were issued for Notre Dame, which will not contain half the number. At half past eleven the King, the bride and bridegroom, SEC. started from the Tuileries, followed by a most bril- liant Cortege. At half past twelve the nuptial knot was tied, and at this moment all Paris is occu- pied in preparing for the fetes of the evening." Among the details of the nuptial rejoicings, 8ce. in France, there are a number of whimsical stories illustrative of the national character. A little dog, belonging to the Princess Caroline, whined to follow her on shore, and the French newspapers trans- lated his lamentations into a very pretty and suc- cessful speech, praying to be taken with his mis- tress to partake in the happiness of France. A parish Curate in a small village first addresses the Princess with an exhortation on the duties of matrimony, and concludes by telling her, thatashe dares say she is tired of his preaching, he will give her a song. His reverence accordingly, without changing his clerical habits, becomes a Trouba- dour, and sings so much con amore, that he can hardly be restrained from dancing ! be met with in the highly polished circles of our metropolis. The Dutch Seem desirous generally to associate with the English, and when they find a person willing to do justice to their character, and to conform to their manners, they seldom fail to cherish his acquaintance, and to treat him with distin- guished attention. The best informed are per- fectly sensible of the great improvement made in the colony by the English, since they have hud possession of it; and appear anxious, by placing their sons in our army and navy, and by marrying their daughters to our countrymen, to cement the boud of union that subsists between the two na- tions. The women of the Cape are most of them pretty, and very pleasing in their manners; and there is a freedom of intercourse allowed them in society, which renders their company peculiarly attractive. In no part of the world are country excursions better conducted than in this colony. The climate, during a great part of the year, from the mildness of its temperature, is particularly adapted to parties of this description ; and the lively spirit which characterizes the younger fe- males, is on no occasion shewn to greater advan- tage. Sometimes eight or ten ladies, and as many gentlemen, start on horseback at the break of day, and ride six or seven miles to one of the country scats before breakfast; and afterwards, remount their horses, extend their excursions, dine at the house of another friend, and without the slightest appearance of fatigue, conclude the evening with a dance. THE SLEEPING SOLDIER. It is stated that the sleeping soldier ( of whom we gave au account in a former paper) is fast re- covering from his feigned or real malady ; he now sits up every day, eats biscuit, and swallows half a pint of wine. Upon being desired, he shows his tongue, but hitherto he has not spoken. He is very weak, but gaining strength. He is about to be put 011 animal food. Symptoms of amendment were shewn immediately that preparations weie made to send him off to Bethlehem. Since suspicion has been entertained of this man's somnolency being feigned, the interest which the detail of his apparent sufferings first excited has been superseded by curiosity to learn in what way the phenomena of his case can be ex- plained. From many instances recorded in Burton's Anatomy of Melancholy, and by other writers, of the extraordinary puwer which persons of various habits and constitutions have exercised, not only over the feelings and faculties of the mind, but likewise over what are called the involuntary muscles, aud even the blood- vessels of the body, we are inclined to believe that the appearance which this soldier exhibits has been determined by the power of volition. Indeed, so highly has a modem writer on the philosophy of morals esti mated this power, as to assert, that no one need die, if with a sufficient energy he determined to live.' Instead of offering any comment on the extrava- gant absurdity of this assertion, we shall here relate an instance ot the power of volition, so far exceed- ing the present as would scarcely obtain credit, was it not supported by an indisputable combina- tion of evidence. It is the case of a gentleman, related by Dr. Cheyne, in his English Malady, in these words:—" He could die or expire when he pleased, and yet, by au effort, or somehow, he could come to life again. He insisted so much 011 our seeing the trial made, that we were at last forced to comply. We all three felt his pulse first; it was distinct though small and thready, and his heart had its usual beating. He composed himself on his back; and lay in a still posture for some time; while I held his right hand, Dr. Baynard laid his hand 011 his heart, and Mr. Skrine held a clear looking- glass to his mouth. I found his pulse sink gradually, till at last I could not feel any by the most nice and exact touch. Dr. Bay- nard could not feel the least motion in his heart, nor Mr. Skrine perceive the least sort of breath 011 the bright mirror he held to his mouth. Then each of us by turns examined his arm, heart, and breath ; but could not by the nicest scrutiny dis- cover the least symptom of life in him. We reasoned a long time about this odd appearance as well as we could, and finding lhat he still continued in that condition, we began to conclude he had carried the experiment too far, and at last we were satisfied he was actually dead, and were just ready to leave him; this continued about half an hour. By nine o'clock in the morning, in autumn, as we were going away, we obseived some motion about the body, and, upon examination, found his pulse and the motion of his heart gradually return- ing. He began to breaThe gently and speak soFtly; we were all aSTonished to the lAst degree at this unexpected change, and after some further con- versation with him and with ourselves, went away fully satisfied as to all the particulars of this fact." LATE INSURRECTION OF NEGROES.— Extract of a letter dated BarbadoeS, April ' 0, 1810, re- ceived by a gentleman in Glasgow:—" You no doubt are apprised of the alarming insurrection of the negroes of this island, which broke out on the evening of Easter Sunday, aud destroyed by fire aud otherwise many estates and plantations throughout the island, even to the suburbs of the town. We have been under martial law ever since, and are likely to continue so for some time. Upwards of 1000 prisoners have been brought in and are now in the castle. Hundreds have been killed, and the Court sits day and night for the trial of the pri- soners. Six were shot yesterday, and seven hanged in the bay this morning, and in every petty village in the country twenty to thirty per day are con- demned aud shot. Description fails in giving a picture of the destruction which is every where around. Many thousands of them are yet toge- ther under their Generals and Captains, and so san- guine were these poor deluded wretches that they would succeed, that their colours had been made ; one of which has been taken, with an ingenious device—' Liberty placing the Hand of a Black into that of a White,' and a Black mounted on horseback as an officer, commanding the Whites,' & c. They had appointed a Governor, who was taken this morning, and I expect every minute to see him marched to the place of execution. As dispatches have been sent off to all the islands, we expect reinforcements of troops, the militia and the few regulars being quite knocked up, having been scouring the country for five days back. I hope in God it will be soon over, as this state of existence is extremely distressing. The negroes were so nigh the town on the morning of the 15th, and a report having been circulated, that they were actually in town, the horror which was spread amongst the female world was dreadful; and, had it not been for the ships in the bay which received them on board, God knows what might have been the consequence. It turned out that these were 500 prisoners, who had been taken and sent to town. I do duty at the gaol, and have not enjoyed many hours sleep since the commencement. Fifty years to come will not put this island in the pros- perous state in which it was before this alarming insurrection." MARQUIS OF ANGI. ESEA'S COLUMN.— The ceremony of laying the first stone of this column took place on Tuesday lust, being the Anniversary of the ever- memorable Buttle of Waterloo, on the summit of Craigy Dinas, an eminence situated on the bunks of the River Menai, and commanding the most extensive and romantic views. THE INSCRIPTION.— This Stone was laid on the 18th June, 1818, being the first of a Column to be erected in commemoration of the consummate skill aud undaunted bravery displayed in the sanguinary field of Waterloo, by Lieutenant- General the Earl of Uxbridge, who com inanded the allied cavalry on that memorable day. His distinguished services were rewarded by his Prince with the title of the Marquis of Anglesea, and his grateful countrymen are anxious to perpetuate them by this tribute ot their admiration. The following cavalry and infantry barracks are about to be reduced:— CAVALRY— Bridport, Dover, Romney, Brabourn Lees, and Trowbridge. INFANTRY— Chester, Liverpool, Pendennis, Sandown. Isle of Wight, Berryhead, Billericay, Maldon, Gosport Margate, Brabourn Lees, Ipswich, Bognor, Alnwick, Aberdeen, Dundee, Ayr, Perth, and Edinburgh. A few days back, whilst two men were cutting peats in the muir of Otter, at the depth of two feet and a half from the surface they discovered a large antique brass cooking kettle, in great preservation, and bearing still the marks of fire. It is in shape and size exactly like a military kettle- drum ; and from its being found at no great distance from one of the many look- out towers or forts that crown the heights of the east side of Loch Foin, from the point of Aird Lamont to the head of the loch, it it presumed to be one Of the Danish camp kettles left behind in one of their expeditions. The body is the half of a sphere, and might contain about eight gallons: it is made of very thin sheet brass, very securely clenched with little rivets, and had been so much used that it had been mended: the rim was strengthened with thick wire of the same metal, handsomely formed, to which were attached two ring handles of brass, but so massive as to be out of all proportion to the weight of the vessel.— On searching further, a small earthen pipkin, was found still deeper, and a few feet from the kettle.,- At Marlborongh- Street Office, on Friday, 3. Roberts, charged with attempting to assassinate J, Hall, Lord Rivers's groom, was finally examined. R. Jackson, a private in the 3d Guards, deposed, that 011 Wednesday evening he was in Park- lane, and Observed the prisoner crossing the road, when Hall's horse came close to the prisoner, but did not touch him; on which he struck at him with a dagger, and the servant struck in return. In a few seconds the prisoner made a stab at the groom, and appeared to strike him under the right shoulder; on which he pulled back his horse. The prisoner then put the dagger in his pocket, and ran into the Park.— [ The prisoner here enquired, " Is the Secretary of State here?" and seemed to be in a frantic state.]— J. Morrison confirmed the above evidence. P. Methuen, Esq. M. P. heard the pri- soner say the groom had no business to have rode against him ; but he could not say who struck the first blow. R. D. Blackwell, Esq. said the prisoner struck the groom with the instrument first, and Ihen walked away through the trees, with the dag- ger under his coat, when he and Cooper laid bold of him. He put his coat aside, and saw the dagger, which he pulled out, and gave into the hand of a constable, who took him to Mount- street watch- house. The prisoner, in his defence, said his name was not Roberts, he was Julius Caesar; that the groom was a common killer; and began to communicate the number of great personages he had killed, and continued in such an inconsistent manner, that the Magistrate ordered him to be taken off to prison. The wife of the prisoner informed the Magistrate she had been married to him about two years, during which she had suffered a great deal in consequence of his violent conduct* At one time she got a person to break off the point of the fatal dagger. His derangement having in- creased, he went to his friends at the. Isle of An- glesey, where he remained until he recovered, when he came to town, and got a situation at Lord Mid- dleton's. In a short time his disorder returned, and his Lordship ordered a medical gentleman to attendhim. Since that time he had continued in a state of insanity, and she had endeavoured to get him into some place of confinement. THE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [ FROM SALT'S TRAVELS] Among the foreign colonies that I have visited, I have found no residence so agreeable as the Cape. The neatness and conveniency of the houses, the salubrity of the climate, and the grandeur of the adjacent mountains, make Cape Town, except during the prevalence of the south- east winds, a most desirable place of abode; and the beautiful rides, and well- sheltered country residences in the neighbourhood, render the adjoining country always delightful. To a person possessing a taste for the sublime, the scenery here could not fail to interest. If fond of plants, the infinite variety of species found close even to the town, would afford them endless amusement; and if inclined to the charms of social intercourse, he might at this time have been gratified by mixing in a society perhaps equal to any in England, excepting that which is to By a decision of the Court of King's Bench, a stage- coach may pass any toll- bar, and change horses, aud return, without being liable to a second toll duty on the same day. The following is said to be a specific for the cure of the stints of bees, wasps, & c.— Beat an onion 011 a hard body to extract the juice, to which add a pinch of common salt; apply the solution to to the part stung, aud the pain and inflammation will speedily cease. The Portland, which has been for many years a convict depot at Cumberland Fort, is about to be removed from thence to Chatham, it being intended to employ at least 500 convicts in constructing the necessary works for the Dock- yard there, A serious affray took place last week near Cas- tlecor, in the county of Cork. Mr. Sheriff Orpen, though assisted by a Captain and six dragoons, was opposed by a mob of 100 persons in levying an execution against persons of the names of M'Au- liffe and two Buckleys. The Captain and the Magistrate were severely handled, and the military were compelled to fire in self- defence.— Several of the rioters, including M'Auliffe, were wounded, but they ultimately succeeded in seizing the cattle levied. LONGEVITY.— Died lately, in the parish of Do- naghtnore, townland of Dromillen, Patrick Fitz- gerald, aged 107. He retained all his mental and corporeal faculties till the last, and was even certain of the moment that his existence was to draw to a period. His wife died about twelve years ago, who attained the age of 102.—( Dublin Paper.) The county of Sussex has for several weeks been much alarmed by the story of a strange animal resembling a wolf, which has been seen upon the downs, and which has committed various depreda- tions upon the flocks. Some wag at Ditcheling, taking advantage of the above circumstances, stuffed the skin of a donkey, one day last week which, with the addition of a goat's head, he placed, unobserved, in a field where an old man was busily engaged at work. The individual in question soon espied the dreadful monster, and hastened to the village to give the alarm. The inhabitants in stantly armed themselves, and surrounded the field, while two or three veterans ventured into the re- treat of the supposed sleeping animal, and after using their muskets with incredible correctness, the hoax was discovered, to the no small discom- fiture of the parties concerned. An awful instance of sudden death occurred be- tween ten and eleven o'clock on Monday morning, in Charter- house- square. The two- penny post- man knocked at a gentleman's door to deliver letter, which, on being opened by the servant, he staggered into the passage, dropped down, and expired without a groan. A surgeon being sent for opened a vein, and used every possible means to restore animation without effect, the vital spark being quite extinct. Last week, four children, the eldest about six years old, went out under the rocks, a little dis tauce from budleigh, Sallerton, to gather peri winkles. The tide coming in, they were unex- pectedly surrounded by the spa; when, providen tially, some fishermen observing them in motion took them for birds, and hove towards the rock with the intention of shooting them; but, to their surprise, discovered their mistake, and rescued them. Friday, a middle- aged man, respectably dressed was found dead in a ditch near Stoke Newington there were several wounds on the body, apparently inflicted with a penknife. He had no property about him, nor any papt: r to lead to a discovery who he was. The body was removed to the next public- house. CORONER'S INQUEST,— Saturday, a Coroner's Inquest was held before Hugh Lewis, Esq. Deputy Coroner for Westminster, at the Punch- Bowl, near Temple- Bar, on the body of Mr. George Thorogood, who, going to Wimbleton Common on Tuesday, in consequence of the report of a review to be held there, on his return in a chaise cart was thrown out, and severely hurt in the head. He lingered till Friday, when he died.— Verdict— Accidental Death. BERKELEY POACHERS.— Thursday se'nnight, Thomas Morgan, Daniel Long, James Jenkins, James Roach, Thomas Collins, John Reeves, Wil- liam Penny, John Burley, and Robert Grove, the nine remaining poachers who had been capitally convicted at the last Gloucester Assizes of " being present at, and of aiding and assisting in" the wil- ful murder of William Ingram, near Berkeley, but whose sentence of death had been, on the humane recommendation of the Jury and the prosecutor, commuted for transportation for life, were removed from the county prison, for the purpose of being immediately sent to New South Wales. AFFLICTING ACCIDENT.— A singularly dis- tressing accident happened at the Lochaline Lime- works, Argyleshire, on the 24< h of May. As some of the workmen were employed In ihe interior of the kiln, the footing ot one of them gave way, when he fell perpendicularly into a cavity formed beneath him, and was. instantly closed opto the shoulders with the burning shells The overseer and his fellow workmen made every exertion to extricate him from his shocking situation, but without effect. With much personal risk they got a cord passed below his arms, which, iu pulling, broke twice, Then to prevent the body from being consumed, they kept continually pouring; water upon him till life was extinct. He endured with heroic firmness, for upwards of half an hour, the excruciating pain, arising from the united tortures of the weight and insupportable heat of a vast quantity of the half- burnt stone. He remained, during the period of his suffering, quite collected, and viewed his inevitable fate with the fortitude and calm resignation of a Christian. With won- derful composure he bade the people around him an affecting adieu. He continued, while he had life, to pray in the most pious and fervent ejacula- tions to the Almighty for himself and his afflicted friends, and breathed his last recommending his soul to his Creator, aud blessing his wife and child. When death had relieved this ill- fated man, the body was soon drawn out, and found to have suf- fered less external injury than could have been expected. The heart- rending scene which followed, when his wife, mother, sisters, aud brothers, were made acquainted with his fate, and came to view the lifeless corpse of a person so dear to them all, and who parted with them an hour before in good health and spirits, may be conceived, but cannot be described. The name of the unfortunate suf ferer was Duncan Macmaster, a young man of sober industrious habits, aud of good moral character. He has left an old widowed mother, a wife, and an infant son, not a month old, to deplore his irre- parable loss. SHOCKING SUICIDE.— Saturday evening, an inquisition was taken by Mr. Gell, Coroner for Westminster, at the Coach and Horses, Bruton- street, Berkeley- square, on the body of Mrs. Han- nah Duer, the wife of a baker, in Bond- street, who put a period to her existence, on Friday morning, by stabbing herself in her bed- room. 1 he de- ceased's servant stated, that she had'lived in the family about fourteen months, d uring lhat time her mistress was extremely attentive to her domestic affairs, and apparently affectionate and happy w ith her husband until within a short time bin k. She then became sullen and despondent. On the day preceding the fatal occurrence, Mr. Duer left town and was to return in a few days. Alter breakfast on Friday, the deceased went up stairs to In r bed- room, and soon after rung the bell. Witness an- swered it, and found her in bed. She appeared in a wild and frantic state. In a few minutes after she rung again, and witness found her in a similar situation. She rung a third time, but on witness entering the room, she was struck w ith the wildness of her looks, and found her weltering in blood. A large sword was close to her, and bloody. The alarm was given, aud medical aid obtained, but without effect. She expired about three o'clock in the afternoon.

At eight o'clock battalions of the National Guard of Paris, of the Royal Guard, of the Departmental Legions, and of the Veterans, occupied the pas- sages leading to the Metropolitan Church, and were formed into two files, so as to keep a clear passage from the church to the Tuileries. About ten o'clock the church was completely filled. The Marshals, the Cordons Rouges, were successively introduced and occupied the places as- signed them. After these, came the Peers of France, the Members of the Chamber of Deputies now in Paris, the Court of Cassation, Ihe Court of Accompts, the Royal Court of Paris, the Municipal Body, a great number of General and superior Of- ficers, the Diplomatic Body, the King's Ministers, & c. At eleven o'clock the forms required for the Civil Act of the marriage were dnly fulfilled in the Great Cabinet of the King in the Castle of the Tui- leries. At half past eleven a discharge of artillery announced the departure of his Majesty. Madame, together with the Duke and Duchess de Berry, were in the carriage with the King.
