1 THE m 570' SUNDAY, NEWS. JUNE :-() ISif). P/ t/ CE This Paper is Published nt ail early hour eve- y SOXD. IV Morning, at " THE NEWS" tjtece, No. 28, Brydges- street, and distributed throughout the Metropolis, and' within the Two- penny Post District, by Nine o'Clock.— JYO Adverthsments of any description are ever inserted in this Paper. THE SESSION OF PARLIAMENT. Ir we view the efforts of the. recent Session of Parlia- ment, in relation to one of the most trying periods of national difficulty and distress which this country has ever experienced, the omissions and half measures, • which mark the course of its exertions, are Confirmations strong as Holy Writ, ffsucli confirmation were necessary, that the House of Commons, as at present composed, is, ifpossible, the most unsound p3r> cf the Constitution of the Country. The errors ef the Crown may adduce the plea of ambition and personal splendour— the Upper House, the mere creation of the Crown, has excuses connected wilh its constituent principles— they are, se- parately or distinct, hut a continuation of the same power— jsst as the nerves emanate from and centre in the brain. But the Commons, if it be ool the repre- sentation of the people, is a monstrous and mongrel something, for which we have no name in morals or politics Its majorities, composed of pensioners and placemen, employed in the most prostituted purposes of Ministers, without being in the service of the peo- ple, form, in effect, an instrument alike destructive of ilsown origin, and the perverted condition of things to which it is rendered subservient. It was a saying of one of our ablest Statesmen, ill at " if ever this coun- try were ruined, it would be through the suicidal po- licy of the Commons." Various have been- the means suggested by philosophers and politicians, in respect to which were the best and safest method of proceed- ing in the way of Parliamentary Reform ; and at tiie late meeting of the Hampden Club the question was agitated— but not in a way, or by agent*, calculated to arouse the sfdiubcrm* puM'sc mint; The fact is, that such m dings are connected with associations if' ich frighten m- uiy able and firm patriots from com- ing ill contact with them. It is not a subject of de- clamation and popular clamour — hut the most serious ajid severe deliberation. It ought to embrace the aid of deputies from all parts- of the empire— to concen- trate the greatest variety of character, and assemble Ihe most indisputable representations cf property.— Thus constituted, - it has no course but PETITION TO THE TIIEONE. It were a solecism to solicit relieffrom a body of men, declared by the petitioners to be in- corrigibly corrupt, and inaccessible to prayer or re- monstrance, with the slightest hope of. success. To the THRONE, and that only, the voice of the people must be directed, on any subject touching upon a re- constituent principle of the popular branch of the Le- gislature. The application must come with that so- lemnly which the universal voice of tbe people alone can inspire. If a plan of Ibis kind were devised, par- taking of no feuds or popular delusions, but com- icg soberly from the recommendation of every man who sees and appreciates the danger of our present position, it were not in the power of Government so- phistry to distract, or divert from its purpose, the determined and solemn march of the public mind. Such a proceeding must have no general or popular leader ; it must neither represent persons nor parties, • with whom any political associations can be formed. It must represent all and entire, that sentiment which at this moment is almost common to every person out of the pay, or interest, or influence of Govern- ment— and such an appeal were at any and all times, more than equal to its object. The People of Eng- land have seen that they have nothing to hope or ex- pect from the existing House of Commons, equal to, or commensurate with, the necessities aud difficulties of the times. It is worthy of remark, that during the entire Ses- sion Ministers have not practised a single instance of economy on their own Voluntary merit. They have yielded to nothing but force and numerical power, whenever the subject came before them. The Public will do well to bear this in mind. It is a proof that the distresses of the country excite no compunction iu them. They seem to look upon the people only as animals of burthen, destined to labour and anxiety, without aid or mitigation, in order tint they may This is probably a provincialism, in phr. t- -; but we want a word significant of a dastarnly cunning, wtiieh, professing to alter and amend, deploys all liie substance continue to rule the world by the corruption of wealth; aud intent of the thing amended. And this they designate as mtr glory ! Their conduct exhibits no commiseration for the. agonizing distress which is whelming ia one common ruiu, the mer- chant, the agriculturist, and the artizan. Profoundly ignorant, or insultingly presumptuous, they have pur- sued a reckless course, alike upon the destruction of our home trade anil our . commerce. They have been the auxiliary of the l uemy, where a com- mon and wide restrictive policy has circumscribed our exports; while they have volunteered themselves as smugglers on the per contra of. the question, and connived at, if not originated, those nefarious prac- tices, in one portion of the.^ iubiic, in punishment of which they scatter ruiu and desolation with a prodigal hand among the other. These are some of the me- lancholy facts which a review dp tlje Session presents ' to us. The great and leading tendency of such mea- sures as have been ado'ptid, has been to open uew sluices of corruption— to lavish the last guinea of tile country on home follies or foreign iiigrates— to confirm and perpetuate the most crying and established grievances— to extend the prerogative of tbe Crown, and abridge the liberty of the subject. We may lake in succession, the abuses of the Civil List, ( now established in a system.) notorious even to infamy— thai succumbing policy to Ihe wicked despotism « f fo- reign tyrants, the AliCn Bill— the bigotted rejection of llie Catholic Claims— tiie cowardly terror of the Clergy, in bit citing* i he question of llie TVTHES— the sacrifice of all Ihe established regulations of honourable and civilized warfare, in the persecution and exile of NA- POLEON BO^ APIRTE— tbe sums expended in keeping ilhe BOURBONS on the Ihrone of France— the creating of new sinecures uuder the •• reiesee of refoim, & c- & c. & c. These are but too faithful a portrait of the falling fortunes of this once happy and powerful empire— now weakened in all that givesworth and vigour to Ihe principle of its allegiance— that rendered ascen- dant among nations its mora! purity and inflexible justice— that encouraged and remunerated industry and art, tiil they became her proverbial possession— and that thus adorned, the community, of human in- tercourse beyond all precedents, which are presumed in tradition, or substantiated in record: and the in- strument of the decay of such a fabric, is THAT AS- SEMBLY to which its safety and integrity are so pri- marily and solemnly consigned. But our citizen- like community has passed uuder military dominion; and such is the extent of the corruption; fed and matured by the wealth and vital resources of ihg people, that the power and influence of Government press. around us iu every direction, till we know not where they terminate, or where they may not prevail. This is the effect of the Funding System— il is not principle, or sentiment, or allegiance. Every man- of property, is directly er indirectly, more or less, a creditor of the State. And this reconciles him to the task of bear- ing the " ills he has," rather than flying to " others which he knows not of." Hence the National Debt has been called the best defence of the country : and Ministers seem to rely considerably on the truth of such a position, for with the exception of the sol- diery, we should look in vain for any semblance of. a national defence in their measures. The Session ends ; and the Ministers take their depar- ture like so many boys from school at a vacation— as wild and as nnreflective—- joyous that tbe next day of account is so distant; and bent only on making the most of their holiday ! They will, during the recess, hear perhaps something furjher of the state of the country— from* those of their dependants, who have their places to preserve— and therefore their patrons to please— or from those who seek the side- wind fa- vours of men in power, and who will therefore take especial care to speak any thing but the truth. The task of destroying a country, has become quite a sci- ence; ; and place ami power are only oilier terms for helping ourselves and our friends, to the peoples money. On the close of the Session, we would beg to recommend to Ministers, a due consideration of the following brief statement from a populous town, within SO miles, or a day's march, of which there are 80,000" men eiiher witolly out of employment, or not suffici* enlly employed l.) p. ocufe the 11 j<- es. su' ies of life; " Dudley, Jme. SG, 1816. " From the slackness of trade, and ihe number of peo- ple who are in absolute. want, we require here that provi- sion should be lower than at other places; yet the constant presence of the military, renders every thing dearer. VY'e- have rumours every day of riots which are taking place, or which will lake place ; and are thus held in constant alarm. What we most drc'a 1, is a burst at some neighbouring quar- ters, where the Iroops may not be stationed in sufficient numbers ; and then our protectors « ill be called off; « nd if that were to happen to- niorrow, ilie toi^ n might be sacked. Numbers have sent off their plate and valuables, to other and more secure places; and every one looks, more or less, to the strength of his castle— as iu a speedy expectation of a siege. This condition of things paralyzes all Irfide what- ever; and we thai have some trifling properly, live only from hand lo mouth. God knows how it Hill end! " I am, & c. IMPERIAL PAR LIAMENT.

Mr. BENNET moved for the number of persons con- fined ill the King's Bench: Last year a committee sat for months on this business. It was said that some good would be done. He had inquired at the be- ginning of this session, and vet, now at its close, 110 communication was received. Whatever had been done to amend this prison, he feared, was not mate- rial. There were various abuses, though Ihe Marshal received 8001. a year, and 2,5001. a year for the Rules. He complained of the severity with which the magis- trates sometimes punished I rifling offences, and men- tioned the case of an individual who had been con- fined in a gaol thirteen months for an act of vagran- cy. This was a degree of rigour i hat could srarcelv be expected from any man of common feelings, and which, if it were not properly authenticated,' could scarcely even be believed to have been sanctioned by- any Englishman. The honourable member alluded to two cases of severity that had occurred in the western part of a neighbouring county ( Sdss- x), as we under- stood him. There a poor idiot had been doomed lo* many months' solitary confinement for vagrancy ; and a poor woman, for showing some violence in a situa- tion where calmness and self- possession could not be expected, had been sentenced to solitary confinement for a considerable time, and afterwards sent to a mad- house. He had one other case to mention, which' would be sufficient to substantiate the charge of seve- rity that he brought against Ihe magistracy. No less than three months' solitary confinement had been awarded against an unfortunate individual for Ihe trifling offence of destroying a . pheasant's egg. The house was probably not aware of what was implied in Ihe punishment of solitary confinement, ll meant, being shut up for 23 hours out of the 2 J within the walls of a solitary cell, wilh no possibility of recrea- tion, with no means of employment, without books,. m m vV; 213 TH E NEWS. JUNE 30 or light to read them, and with great limitations m point of food or sustenance. The only 1 i^ ht that was admitted was by means of a window which had no glass, and which the prisoner could not consequently keep open without exposing himself to the inclemen- cies of the weather. To such a fate was an indivi- dual doomed for three months, for destroying a phea- sant's egg ! The magistrates who had pronounced this cruel sentence, and who had ordered such a dispro- portioned punishment, ought to be ashamed of their conduct. The honourable member concluded by moving that there he laid before the house a return of the number of persons confined in the King's Bench prison, the Fleet and Marslialsea prisons, since the beo- innino- of June 1815 lo June 1816 ; and likewise an account of the greatest number confined in the said prisons at anv one time in llie said space. Sir CHARLES and Mr. BURIIELL defended Ihe Sussex Magistrates from the charges made against theiu bv the" Honourable Member. The former said the wo- man in question had acted ill the most violent and outrageous manner in his own presence; and he was convinced that, if she had procured a weapon at that time, her rage would have made her dangerous. She had behaved in this manner when she was aware that her violence had rendered her sanity suspected, and consequently when she was under the strongest motives to esiablish it by a conduct cool and collected. She was sent to the house of correction, not as a punish- ment, but as a restraint; and the magistrates who committed her used every endeavour to get her con- veyed to a mad- house as soon as possible. She was Dow in a mad- house, and treated with every mark of humanity. Sir FRANCIS BURDETT understood that the case of the unfortunate woman referred to was one, not of insanity, but of violent rage, arising fiom seduction and subsequent ill- treatment. In such circumstances paroxysms of violence might he expected; and for such, this poor woman was sentenced to two years' solitary confinement. The system established of award- ing solitary confinement for certain offences had been very much abused. It had been entirely diverted from the spirit and intention with which it had been recommended by Mr. Howard. It was distinguished now by undue and disproportiened rigour. Only one hour was allowed in the 24 for air and exercise. This was indicative of its severity. With what surprise must it strike every one to hear that this was the pu- nishment awarded for the most trifling offences 1 An act of vagrancy exposed him who committed it to six or seven months of such confinement, and Ihe receiv- ing alms was an act of vagrancy. Mr. HUSKISSON said, with regard to the woman the Magistrates had no choice, as her violence was dan- gerous, and the peace was sworn against her. She was sent to the hp- use of correction till her insanity should be ascertained. Solitary confinement was useful. The period of imprisonment from this was allowed to be shortened, and the prisoner came out improved both in morals and character, while ia other cases of im- prisonment the former were deteriorated, and the latter entirely lost. The Magistrates whose characters had been implicated were too just and humane to deserve the censure of the lion. Gentleman. Sir C. BURKELL explainer1. Mr. BEN NET, in explanation, professed that he ne- ver objected lo the system of solitary confinement in general, but thought that six months of it were loo much for an act of vagrancy. He again alluded to Ihe case of the woman confined for insanity : it was the consequence of seduction. The first case in which it appeared was shown in her opposition to surrender her child. She was confessedly subject lo violent fits of rage; but never couid be considered - as insane. He never heard a case of greater hardship, or calcu- lated to excite more sincere pity. He hoped the un- happy woman would life attended to. Mr. RENNET'S motion was then agreed to. The Saving Bark's Bili was read a third time and passed.— Adjourned. " WEDNESDAY. JUNE 26, MAD- HOUSES. On Ihe third reading of tins Biit, Mr. Ross wished to introduce a clause, exempting from visitation houses where only one patient > vas confined. Mr. HORNER and others opposed the clause, which was ultimately withdrawn, and the Bill passed. Mr. PONSONBY observed, that he must suppose the Chancellor of the Exchequer had made his calculation of Ihe means for Ihe public expenditure till next Ses- sion. Was il probable then, after the coming proro- gation, thai Ministers would advise the re- assembling of Parliament before January next ? The CHANCELLOR of Ihe EXCHEQUER had no ob- jection lo answer the question as far as he could. Par- liament had made provision fully for the present year : and if nothing unforeseen arose, he did not appre- hend tbe necessity of calling Parliament together be- fore Christmas. Sir S. KONILLY presented a Petition from Ihe Clolh- workers ai Frome, complaining, anwng other mailers, of I tie effects of Ihe great introduction of machinery. Mr. CIORE IJSCTOS said, Ihe distresses of ihe country were hourly increasing.— Ordered to lie on the table.— Adjourned lo Wednesday. The head- dress of Ihe Duchess tie Berri, at Notre Jlame, is particularly described iu the Paris Papers, and by ilieir description it must have been curious.— 11 consisted of a diadem ol brilliants, and of a garland, half of natural orange flowers, hall of silver lilies.— Thisgailand « urrounded a mass of h.- u", in Ihe midst of which » asa brilliant comb. Behind the comb a hat of or; nge flowers covered a clasp, tr. rr> which de- pended two labels ut tulle, embroidered in silver. INSVHHECTlOJV AT TUSIS. The following particulars of the lale Insurrection at Tunis are extracted from the French papers: — On the 30th of April las', at nine in Ihe evening, all ihe gales of the town being shut, and the peaceable in- habitants retired to heir houses, the Tuikish soldiers, to Ihe number of 3,000, divided into. sinaH parties, proceeded to Ihe Governor's Palace and the houses of the principal persons of his Court. In less than half an hour they we e masters of Tunis and the ci a e ol the Gaspa. The Divan being assembled, pronounced the deposition of Mohammud Bashaw and the Be_ » Sedi Asseu. Sida Muslapba, Ihe brother of Mohaui- niud, and Seniain Bey, his uncle, were proclaimed in their place. The Barda was informed of these events !. y a message which required his presence in the Di- van next morning. The answer of the Barda was, " that Sedi Muslapha and Seniain Bey declared ihey would not separate from the parly of the Bashaw and Sedi Assen ; that Ihey were ready to defend them, and as uear relatives of the Sovereign, would never take part in a revolt against him." This discouccrtcd ( he rebels, and it now appeared that their plan was to form an elective Turkisk Go vernmcnt, and one of their Chiefs, named Del'- AIi, was chosen Bashaw. He promised them the pilla- e of the town for three days, additional pay, and Ihe abo- lition of several taxes. Fortunately, however, some of the more prudent suggested the necessity of first securing the Gouleile, an important point of rommu nicalion, by which they might have a retreat in case of accidcnt, and from which they might be supplied with ammunition. This opinion was adopted, and the town v. as saved. The rebels had, however, scarcely left Ihe town, vvheu those who remained with Deli- Ali, instead of obeying his sanguinary orders, seized him, and threw him into a dungeon, and requested Ihe Bey to grant a general amnesty to Ihe Turks, who, thev said, had been misled and seduced. Tranquillity was Iheu restored, almost without an effort. In the meantime those who marched against the Gouletle, though informed of this event, did not lose courage. Tliey continued iheir march, and about one in Ihe morning carried the fort, which made but a feeble resistance. Had they been so inclined, they . might have maintained themselves there; Ihey couid have resisted all the efforts of their enemies, and pre- served Ihe key which rendered them masters of Tunis ; but it appeared that Ibeir sole design was to proceed to the Levant, and to effect that purpose they took possession of five corsairs which were in the port ready for sea. On the 2d in the morning they began the general pillage by plundering the houses of the Kava, the Christians and Ihe Jews throwing into the harbour what goods they could not carry away, and spiking all the cannon. They were about to set fire to the arsenal and tracing vessels, but the sudden appearance of the Euphrates Erigliih frigate saved Ihe European shipping in the roads. Having taken the alarm they now hastened Iheir departure. About 700 embarked on board of the five corsairs, and sailed with a favour- able norlli- west wind for Constantinople. At this moment tiie Sedi- Assen arrived with a nurn her of cavalry, but found only the smoaking traces of pillage and conflagration. In the conclusion almost all the leaders of tbe revolution saved themselves, and carried off the best corsairs belonging lo the Regency. This morning De'i- Aii, and one of his accomplices were strangled. " Lord Ex mouth arrived on Monday at Portsmouth with his fleet from the Mediterranean. Thither we must dispatch another. These piratical practices can no longer be permitted— No more treaties—" My voice is in my sword." The Lords of the Ocean cannot suf- fer their domain to be insulted with impunity." Courier. The Placeman, Sir T. B. Thompson, has, we are happy lo bear, been defeated in his attempt to be re- elected for Ihe City of Rochester. Every ministerial niancEuvre was pul in practice— Ihe Clergy of the Cathedral, at least those on tbe look out for Pre- bendaries— Deaneries and Bishoprics— were most ac- tive on the occasion— llie Dock- yard men from Chat- ham were also brought iuto flay— freemen— we mean electors were brought from distant parts of the king dom— but nothing would do— and Mr. Barnet his antagonist, has triumphed by a majority of two— the numbers being 408 for Mr. Barnet and 406 for the Placeman. On Sunday last the Officers of the Cavalry Depot at Maidstone, strongly marked their disapprobation of the conduct of the person who was so conspicuous at the lale County Meeting, in opposing the Addresses, by turning him out of the Barrack yard, with a strict injunction never to appear there again. Prince Leopold on Wednesday inspected Cumberland House, Pall Mall, which the Board of Ordnance is about to remove from ; this inspection is, it is said, with a view to his Serene Highness's residence there with his Royal Consort, Camelford- house being found inadequate and inconvenient. By private letters from Paris we learn, that a some- what singular report prevails there respecting the late negociation* between Lhe Courts of Spain and Portu- gal. The Court of Brazil, it is said, proposes to cede all the Portuguese territory in Europe to the Crown of Spain, in exchange for a " large part of the Spanish South American possessions. With Ihe view, as is supposed, of conquering these latter from the insur- gents, either as a principal or as an ally, most of Ihe Portuguese troops havo been drawn froiu Lisbon to the Brazils. DREADFUL FIRF. AND OUTRAGE IN A I. D & IIS- ( iA TE- S Tit E E /'. About two o'clock on Thursday morning a most altrming fire was discovered in Ihj premises of Mr. Dir. kin, taliow- melier, in Alder- gate slrepl, occasion- ed bv some men breaking into ihe house; after which thev proceeded to Ihe r. mra " where Mr. Dnnkni was sleeping, who n they pulled from his bed, tied his bands anil feet togHhrr, a ' d a rope round Ins neck; thev then filtered him lo the banisters threatening to murder him if he made the least noise: they then searched for Ihe key of Ihe iron sale, which lliey fou il : u Mr. D.' s room, and then proceeded In rob it ot ils Contents, among which were about 400 Napol o s, and only two pounds in Bank nines, which Ihey took, and alter setting fire to Ihe house, left it,' leaving Mr. Dunkin to alarm the family bv his screams. They made their escape fiom the roof; a bag containing seventy pounds of silver, which had been deposited iu the hands of Mr. Duakin f > r safely, was left behind. MANSION nor c.— On Thursday /'. Connelly and r. Dixon were charged on suspicion of having se; fire to Ihe premises » f Mr. Dtinkin, tallow- chandler, in Aldersgate- stre- ol, on Wednesday night, when Ihe whole of the dwelling, furniture, & c. were deslroye. , tegeiher with the upper part of Ihe house of Cocker- ton and Son, oil- men, adj oining. These two houses, with another on the n- rth side of Mr. Dunkin's, it may be remembered, were also destroyed last year by fire, and had just been r- built. Mr. Dunkin deposed, that on Wednesday night, about half past 12 o'clock, tw'> men entered his bed- room, and having drawn aside his curtain, ono oF Ihem seized hold of him, and. show ing a knife, threa- tened to do for him," if he made the slightest noise. The other placed a pillow upon his face, ami prevented his crying out. They a> ked him for the keys of his desk, money - chest, &<•. He said he did not remeiulier where he had placed Ihem ; and finding thai he was not willing Io satisfy Ihom, Ihey dragged him from the bed. and brought liimlo thf landing- place of Ihe stairs. Here one of them proceeded lo lie bis neek, hands, and arms, to th - banisters, while the other fastened two handkerchiefs about his eyes. One of them proceeded to search for the keys, and soon after called out lo his companion. *> ho remained wiili witness, that h" had got Ihem. Tbe parlies then infoimed him, that ihey would - non leave Ihe house, but that ifhe attempted lo call out previous to their closing Ihe street- door alter diem, they would have his life, i They lb'u left him, when, after reinai'iing a shorl time, he heard Ihe door shut, and instantly called fur help. One or two persons, who slept at Ihe top of ihe house, immediately came to his assistance, and he was released from his situa ion. During the whole of Ihe outrage, he never distinguished the fict a of either of the persons, not even in his room, w here he usally burnt a rushlight. He thought, however, from their voices, that the one was an Irishman, and the other an Englishman. Connelly was an Irishman, and one of his day porters, who had lived in his ser- vice some years. Suspicion fell upon him ; and Har- rison, the officer, having gone to his lodgings, in Cow- cross, he found Dixon ( an Englishman). Connelly was apprehended at the fire, but nothing of a suspici- ous nature was found either at their lodgings or on their persons. A porter and two of the servants of Mr. Dunkin dc » posed to the alarm given by the latter, and Ihe stale in which they found him. After releasing him from his situation, they opened the windows which looked into tbe street, and discovered a smoke, as if from a fire, issuing from fhe cellar. They instantly, gave ail alarm; but the night being wet, it was some time be- fore assistance was procured: and notwithstanding every subsequent exertion of the engines and inhabi- tants, the fire continued lo burn until Ibe whole of the interior v. as destroyed, including every article of fur- niture, & c. and leaving merely the walls standing. The iron chest, in which were deposited the books, mo- ney, & c. was found to have been opened, and a quan- tity of Bank- notes, and 400 gold Napoleons, were sto- len therefrom. A bag, containing a considerable sum ill silver, was left behind; as were also the account- books, five of which were saved. During the fire, about three o'clock in the morning, the flames having communicated to the house of Cocker'ton and Son, next door, where some combustibles were deposited, an explosion took place, and Ihe top rooms and roof were blown into the air. Nearly the whole of the fur- niture in the latler, however, was saved. The fire was not completely subdued till five o'clock. After thoroughly investigating the case, the LORD MAYOR was of opinion that there was not the slightest evidence of suspicion attached to the prisoners, and ordered tlieni to be discharged. FURTHER PARTICULARS.— The statement in some of the Evening, papers, that a gang of Irishmen had l ushed into the house of Mr. Dunkin," is a gross mis- representation. How Ihe two persons, described to have entered the chamber of Mr. Donkin, got into Ihe house has not been di covered, as no violence of a particular description was manifest upon the locks or bars of the doors front or back. Mr. Dunkin was but lately returned from Paris, and about a week since had stocked his cellar w ith a quantity of new tallow. During Ihe last fortnight he had also laid in several articles of new furniture. Mr. Dunkiii, v » e understand, was ensured to the amount of above 5,000l. A writer in the Journal lies Detain, in a critique on a translation of Roscoe's" Leo X.," speaks of ihe re- formation in the severest terms: he says, tli. il Ihe pre- tended reformation litis caused more evils to Europe than tbe French revolution ; that almost every throne has been shaken by it, and that it has desoluied all nations with the scourge of way. JUNE SO THE NEWS. * 213 C1UM. CON. SHERIFF'S COURT, JUNE 29. LORD GEORGE BERESFORD V. THE EARL OF BECTIVE. Tills was a case brought oil yesterday before the She- riff, to recover 30,0001. in damages, for criminal con- versation with Ihe Plaintiff's wife. Judgineut was al- lowed to go by default. Mr. Serjeant BEST opened Ihe case with a very ex- cellent speech, aqd produced the following witnesses to prove the good terms 011 which the Plain iff lived with his wile, viz.:— Sir Richard Crofts, Ihe Marquis Cholmondeley, the Earl of Arran, Wm. Jones, Esq. and Colonel Bridges. He then l ead a letter from the Defendant to Lady Beresford, in which the adulter ous intercourse is admitted. [ The le'ter was filled with metaphorical trash, and described the evil consequences to Ihe lady and to Ihe writer, of allowing any other man to share her em- braces : it also stated, the defendant had been prolh- gare aud inconstant to many others, but could never be so to his adorable Harriet.] Mr. Serjeant VAUGHAN made an ingenious speech in mitigation of damages, and urged that the plaintiff had sustained no severe loss in the loss of his wife, she having been more than once under the care of a phy- sician for insanity. He endeavoured to ascertain thai Lord George Beresford was a gay man, but failed. The SHERIFF having summed up the case, the Jury retired for a short time, and relurned a verdict for the plaintiff— Damages Ten Thousand Pounds. The Earl of Bective is tbe eldest son of ihe Marquis of Headfort, one of Ihe Prince Regent's Bedchamber Lords. His case will) Mrs. Massey cannot be forgotten. Phllpot ( urran has recorded it in language which will never die. The following is Ihe account which the Haarlem Couranl gives of Lord Exinouth's lale negociations with the Algerine pirates. There appears so much of spite in it, that we feel inclined to doubt some parts of it:—" Lord Exinouth himself went on shore to prescribe to Ihe Dev ( who, alter Ihe Treaty so lately concluded with the Neapolitans and Sardinians, could expect nothing of Ihe kind) the condition that ihe Algerines should in future treat the sailors and pas- sengers who may fall into their hands, not as slaves, but as prisoners of war. It was as if one should re- quire a people who had only one branch of industry to renounce it. In fact, the indignation of Ihe Divan and the Turkish militia, whom the Dey consulted suc- cessively, rose to Ihe highest pitch. Lord Exmouth and his suite had great difficulty in getting through the crow I th it collected, and reaching again the beach and their boats. The family of Ihe English Con iii w is fe clied, with much ill- treatment, from his cotir.. house; and two officers of Ihe same nation, • who lodged ihere, were seen b ought inlo Algiers with th? ir hands tied behind thoir backs. " The nexl day, while the batteries were furnishing witij artillery and men, Hi ' D » j had a proposal made to the Admiral to let Ihe whole affair he dormant for six months, in order to consult the Grand Seignior concerning a novelty so directly contrary to ihe Alge- line constitution : but the proposal being rejected, and the English threaiening the most violent attack in de- fault of immediate- consent, uilh s> des prepared for the combat, and tiie Tuikish Militia swore to bury themselves under fhe ruins, rather than suffer their Dey to lie reduced lo depart from the laudable customs of lheir forefathers. The brave Lord judged it not advisable to provoke ihis spirit any further. Perhaps his instructions were not positive enough lo allow him to give effect to his loud threats aud demonstrations. His force was considerable, and sufficient for the pur- pose, especially as that of Algiers was in nowise pre- pared for an effectual resistance; and this very circum- stance made the arrogance of the Dey still more into- Jejable, and had ill a few hours the following results :— 1st, Consent to the delay of six months, to refer to the Grand Seignior for his opinion and advice. 2d, The landing of a number of chests with new pieces of eight, being the ransom of Ihe subjects of Naples, Sardinia, and Tuscany, delivered to the British squa- dron in April, at 1000 piastres per head. 3d, The amicable joau of an English frigate to convey to Con- stantinople the annual tribute from Ihe Algerines, for which service they would nol willingly employ their own vessels, for fear of the American and Dutch squad- rons that are cruising off the const. The Dey, on his side, engaged to maintain perpetual peace wilh the kingdoln of Hanover4 and so the English Admiral set sail again, as it appeared, well satisfied, with his five ships of the line, lour heavy and four light frigales, after tha arrangements made had been further con- firmed by particular presents 011 both sides. The Dey sent him a great ostrich on board, whose qualities tlie British naturalists may now study more curiously than ever; and this gift was returned by the pre- sent of a remarkably fine telescope, which secures to the worthy Dey the satisfaction ( in case Lord Ex- mouth should take it into his head to make him a third visit) of being able to descry him at a very great distance, and to he thus better prepared to give him a due reception." The Marquis of Hertford was gazetted last night Lord Lieutenant of the County of Warwick, vacant by the death of the late Earl of Warw ick. ' I'he Jive persons who were doomed to expiate the crime of rioting at Ely and its neighbourhood with their lives, were executed on Friday last. A further reduction of clerks in Ihe Navy- office has taken place within these few days: some of the indi- viduals thus discharged have becu five aud six years in their respective siluations. We are sorry to announce ( 0 our Readers Ihe dan- gerous state of Mr. Sheridan. The complaint of this once great and celebrated man is an Internal humour, which assumed an alarming appearance at the end of last week, and for which he has constantly refused lo suffer an operation. He is attended at his bouse in Saville- row, by D s. Baillie and Bay nes. The number of inquirers has been so great, il has been found ne- cessary, in prevent his being disturbed by the noise to take the knocker from the door, and remove Ihe door- hell. He has suffered a convulsive fit of a very alarming nature. It is the opinion of Ihe Physicians, thai he would not be able to survive a second attack, equally severe, many minutes; but that if it should not recur, he may linger out eight or leu days. He is greatly wasted away, and is able to take very liltle nourishment. Mrs. Sheridan and their son Charles are with him, and are indefatigable in their atten- tions. ' I'he following was Mr. Barnet's excellent speech, addressed to the Mayor, on his being returned last w eek one of tbe Members for Rochester. Were a si- milar pledge exacted and given in every independent i. lace, we might stand some chance of seeing some of our public abuses remedied :—- " SIR,— 1 rejoice that the Majority of One gave the Fieemt- n of Rochester the opportunity of again asserting and confirming their freedom ; and that the Majority of Two in this Hall, and on ihis day, has gloriously seconded the efforts and voles of the virtuous 69 of the House of Commons, and thereby, I trust, secured their independence for ever.— Brother Citizens, I feel myself e » alteil beyond any precedent ever given before, in the city of Rochester, but still do consider myself as your servient, and will at alt times, and in all instances, consult you on every point, where ttie interest of tbe United Kingdom, your uncon- quered County, or your City, is in que.- tion. and, if re- quired, will obey your instructions; considering that the best way of representing a Free City, will he to take their opinion, and to act upon their decision.— Gentlemen, I feel dignified by being the servant of such a free and re- spectable body of men as the Independent Freemen of Ro- chester, and will be vigilant and watchful, against all Placemen and all corruption, a zealous advocate for Re- form, and a determined enemy to overbearing, corrupt, and profligate Ministers. I will always be alive to every exertion you make in the cause of Independence, and my best endeavours, and every energy of my mind, shall be devoted to the interest and welfare of the Freemen ; and I mil study and put into action every effort to maintain your rights and privileges to the end of my existence." The Bath and Cheltenham Gazette of Wednesday con tains the following paragraph :—" Committed to Fish- erton gaol, Henry Slade, of Trowbridge, shearman, charged with having committed a riot and breach of Ibe peace, in company with other persons, on the 20th instant, at the house of George Elliott, a shearman, at Trowbridge." It appears from The Balh and Cheltenham Gazette, that there has been a disturbance at Chippenham, but of a different character from that at Trowbridge. The following is the account given of it in that paper :— " On the evening of Sunday se'niught an affray of a serious nature occurred at Chippenham, occasioned by a detachment of an Irish cavalry regiment quar- tered in that town, who, having been roughly handled by the inhabitants on a former similar occasion, were desirous of being revenged. Accordingly, having pro- vided themselves with ' sprigs of shillelah,' ( in some of which lead and nails had been inserted.) they at- tacked every one who happened to be in the streets. To oppose these formidable assailants many ofthe in- habitants collected in a body; and, after a hard strug- gle, the Hibernians were driven to their quarters. One ofthe townsmen, we understand, was so severely wounded, as to be conside cd for some days in imini nent danger of his life. The windows of the Angel Inn, and of several respectable dwelling houses, suf- fered materially in Ihe affray." A barbarous murder and robbery was perpetrated on Saturday night, near Vauxhall- bridge, in Die vicinity of this town. A person who was returning home f. om Ihe country saw the flash, and heard the report of a pistol; but imagining it to proceed from some person amusing himself, it did not greatly arrest his atten- tion, and he continued walking down the side of Ihe canal, but he had not walked tar before he perceived two men lending over the body of a third, which was stretched 011 the earth. On nearer approach, he in- quired what they were about: instantly one of them, apparently an athletic man, started up, seized him by his legs, and precipitated him into the canal. He struggled some moments in the water; and when lie had jus! regained the bank, the villain beat him on the head with what he supposed the bull end of a pistol. Concluding him to be entirely disabled, he returned 10 his associate, and. il. is supposed, completed the rob- bery. In ihe precipitation of re. real, they left a pis- tol, which was found lying near the body. Mean lime the man gol out of ihe canal, and with all celerity proceeded to tbe nearest house 10 give Ihe alarm, A part\ of men immediately proceeded to the scene of murder. They found the man still extended on ihe ground, insensible, and weltering in his blood. They coi. veyed him to the infirmary, hut jusi as they reached it the unfortunate man expired. Two men have been taken inlo custody upon suspicion, and have been remanded for examination. The murdered man is unknown ; hilt is supposed lo have come from the country to proceed to America..— Liverpool Cou- rier. A letter from a correspondent at Coventry, informs 11s, that the Poor rates in that place amount to three times the rent of the houses— and such is the encreas- ing number of paupers that ilie work- house being full, application has been made to Government for the barracks, lo convert them into poor- houses. Drory- lane Theatre closed 011 Friday night, with an appropriate Address, well delivered by Mr. iiae. PARIS, JCNE 23.—( Private Letter).— In pursuance of Ihe present main object, of Government, that of creating an army and rendering Ihe Princes popular iinong the military, a grand review of all the troops in Ibe neighbourhood of Paris took place the day be- fore yesterday In the Champ de Mars. The National Guard, winch had been kept under arms ever since seven in the morning, and which performed but a se- cond try pai I iu Ihe scene, felt not a liille fatigue and discontent at waiting until two iu the afternoon for ihe arrival of the King. Neither did the Royal Guard it- self, more than the National Guard thus disposed, exhibit much warmth of feeling on the appearance of his Majesty, attended wilh Ihe Princess and their brilliant train. Not a single shout was heard for some time, until the King taking off bis hat and bowing lo Ibe troops, gave, as it were, the signal for a gene- ral cry of five ie Hoi I This cry was commanded and kept up for a while by Ihe Officers, who riding along the lines, endeavoured lo stir up by their example Ihe enthusiasm of the troops. The number of men assembled was from 10 lo 12,000 men, some say 15,000. The cavalry, consisting of cuirassiers, dra- goons aud lancers, chiefly of Ihe old Imperial Army, offered the martial exhibition that might be expeclid ; hut Ihe appearance of the infantry, composed princi- pally of strippliiigs, was truly wretched. Tbe Prince9, as 1 said, are now making efforts of every kind lo gain the affections of ihe soldiery. Government fore- see the impossibility of performing their engagements with ihe Allies, beyond a certain time, and the object of all their care and . solicitude is that of preparing a military force, so as, according to a current expres- sion here, to pay their itcbls with an army. Ouce pro- vided with thai force, which tliey conceive equal to overpower all disaffection, their policy will be to strengthen, as much as possible, their union with ibe people, and produce division among Ihe Allies. As to an alliance, they have the. option between Russia and England. But the alliance itself they would fix upon, would uuf irtunately prove a subject of dissen- tion between the Government and the People, she lat- ter inclining towards Russia or any Power raiher Ih in England, while the Government look to British power as their firmest support. Such are Ihe present views of the French Court, such are their hopes of freeing themselves from their seemingly inextricable diflicui- ies. How they will be able to carry them into effect, critically situated as they are between the Allies and Ihe People, it is difficult to say. The present politic* of the Court lean in consequence to ihe side of Eng- land, and an open alliance between England and Franca to oppose Ihe pretensions of Russia and the olher Al- lies, is a report industriously circulated by the Court party. OIL Friday morning, between 10 and 11 o'clock, a middle- aged man, rather corpulent, « as discovered un- der the bridge of Ihe Regent's canal at Hampstead. Read, the officer, passing at tbe time, assisted in tak- ing the deceased out ; he was very decently dressed in black, had no money in his pockets, nor any papers by which he could be traced, or to whom be belonged ; bis shirt was marked E. M ; and he was taken to the sign of the Mother Redcap, Camden- town, lo be owned, and for a coroner's inquest. On Tuesday last at two o'clock, being a still sultry day, a most fundus whirlwind passed over the nursery ground of Mr. Henderson, in the Edgeware Rcmd, which lifted seven lights from the green houses and carried them to the height of the highest elm irees ; each of the lights weigh fifty or sixty pounds at least. At the same time two gardea mats were car- ried to an immense height, so that the eye could not distinguish them. Two of the lights came in contact, while at the greatest height, wilh a tremendous crash. Last Sunday afternoon the village of Bere, in Dor- setshire, and the neighbouring country, were thrown into a state of great alarm by several fires breaking out in the village at the same time, and no doubt was entertained but they were intentionally caused by some incendiary. A large wheat- slack, a malt house, two barns, and three houses, were all in flames; and the suspicion was, that it was intended lo burn down tbe whole village. The Gentlemen of Ihe district look the alarm, and were 011 the alert, not only to extin- guish the fires, but to discover the incendiary; and Bishop, the Bow- street officer, being at Wareham, which is seven miles distant, with a view to discover the robber or robbers who broke open the house of Mr. Thomas, and stole a considerable sum, was sent for to Bere. He arrived immediately, and set about endeavouring to extinguish Ihe fires, in which he was materially assisted by a man of Ibe name of Parches, who, from his language and conduct, Bishop suspect- ed was concerned in the crime: his suspicions proved correct, for, upon an investigation as to the com. mencement of the fires, Purches Was taken info cus- tody, and examined before a Magistrate, the evi- dence was sufficient lo commit Mm- to Dorchester pri- son on a charge of vyilfiilly setting fire lo the wheat- slack. A man of ibe name of Hewitt was admitted ail evidence against Purches. The principal part of Ihe property set fire to belonged to a Gentleman of the name of Burgess.

JUNE 30 LAW INTELLIGENCE. COURT OF KING'S BENCH, JUNE 24. GOODMAN V. JOHN MILES AND CO. It was staled by Ihe ATTORNEY- GENERAL, on the part of the plaintiff, that Gpodman was the tuthrr. in- law of Miles, who had confessed judgment: Ihe pre- sent action, thereWe, was ngaiust fhe other defend- ants, William Wail h man, Thomas Smith, and John • Smith, who were in partnership with him. William Wailhman was the son of a gentleman no doubt well koonu to them s he war a man of . great ability, and who took an active part in the affairs pf the Corpora- - tion ; he carried on an extensive concern at the corner of Bridge- street ; he had— no doubt ac. lu. aled by a laudable desire of promoting the interest of his son— placed him, although not of age,, in partnership with the other defendants, ( he co, rner of Turnstile, Holborn'. Mr. Goodman was a nrtn of property, and had advanced iiis son in- law, for the benefit of the con- cern, sums - amounting to 340h, and for which he held promissory notes 011 demand, in the name of the firm, for the recovery of which the present action was brought. Mr. Wiseman proved that the signature of John Miles and Go. ! o the uotes w as in the hand- writing of Miles. Henry Miles, the brother, staled, that he bad been 5n the emplov of the defendants during the whole time Iiis brother was in the concern ; that his brother had at Ihe time informed him that he had received the said sums of Goodmaii for the concern. In answer to questions from Mr. GORNEY, he staled, that an entry in the cash- hook then produced of IOOL', borrowed from Goodman, was a false entry, made by the direc- tion of his brother, no such money ever having been borrowed: that another entry of the payment of the said sum was also a false entry, no such money having been paid; that all ihe other entries in the cash- book of money borrowed and paid to G. oodman were false entries; ' that there was no entry whatever in any. of the partnership books of the monies now staled to have been lent by . Goodman; that his brother had been engaged in various bill transactions with a Mr. Jeremy and others, and h; id bought goods of him to raise money, some of which were re- sold without ever coming into the house, and which transactions were unknown to the other partners: th i as soon as they discovered them, they dissolved the partnership ; that these and other sums wore borrowed lo keep these, transactions from I heir knowledge, and to t'ke up bills of persons whom the other partners had cautioned his brother not to trusi ; that a red cash- book, then produced, contained eniries of some of these transac- tions, hut it was a private hook of Iiis brother's, and the other partners never had seen it.

He was extremely poor, having a few days ago' sold • an annuity of 15l. which had been till then his sole means of subsistence. The ATTORNEY- GENERAL addressed the Court for the prosecution, representing the injurious nature of the offence in corrupting the morals of ihe rising ge- neration. In order that iheir Lordships might be fully aware of Ihe disgusting nature of the box for which 6s. had been given, he had brought them both with him into Court, and would produce thern if their Lordships thought it necessary.

Mr. Serjeant RUM. NIKGTOS.— I must remand you to amend your schedule; you must produce the du - plicates, and they must he noticed in your schedule.— Remanded. Mr. HEATH moved the Court for a rule to allow the Reverend John Montgomery, who was ' remanded some time since for concealment of property, tocoine up to satisfy the. Court that 110 such concealment ever took place, and to receive the benefit of the Act. Mr. BASSET opposed his being allotted to come up before the. creditors had received notice. The objection was over- ruled, and a rule absolute obtained upon payment of costs.

Miss O'XHu has maueaoTf^ rsSfjnee as the heroine of tfrit Anglo- German composition Pitarr^— « but for the speech -> f R*! la, and two or three other points vTmctf SITERIBAN's genius has ma te striking, would probably ne- ver have enjoyed the immense popularity which attended its first appearance. It is full of all those half- affecting, half- Tepuhivr extremities of pathos and sentiment, which, when assisted by excellent acting, just hit the mark of holding one's feelings in a disagreeable suspensive sort of ^ conclu- siveness,— but which, when heightened by a littlf addi- tional GermafiiSm iii the actor, never fail to call forth— • what perhaps they most deserve— our unmixed disgust. We dfc'n > t experience this latter feeling in its full extent on MondaV evening. Mis- O'NEILL in no situation could be an objcct of it. But we like her less in this character than in any other that she lias performed— She did not act altoge- ther ill— but she is not suited to the part. Eluiri is a very disagreeable personage; and Miss O'NEILL'S talents are wasted i. n an up- hill sort of effort to reconcile ns to her. If she does not quite succeed in this, the blame is less Iier's than the Herman Lady's. It i> spying what every one may conjecture when we say that Miss O'NEILL went through many passages and many scenes with all those proprieties uf demeanour and delivery which are always her's. This detailed praise may indeed be given to a great proportion of her acting in the character. But still it is not her own— she is not at home in it— it does not harmonize with the pensive, the mild, the pure Miss O'NF. RLB. The subdued dignity of suffering innocence and virtuous sorrow shine forth nith a more chaste splendour in Miss O'NEILL than in any Tragic actrcss we have seen— but the sort of uppish conscientiousness and officious piety which characterize this kept mistress of the Spanish Hero, are by no means quali- ties wuich Miss O'NEILL has the art of displaying with consistency or elfect. Tiie severity of innocence rising su- perior to insult or oppression, sits easily npon her: in this situation she can put on " a glowing frown as if an angel shone '— but slic cannot fume and fret and bully under an uneasy load of Hounded pride and conscious shame, which drives her for relief to the parade of repentance and osten- tatious displays of charity and sell- abasement. Miss O'NEILL looks like purity and truth itself— and this sort of juggle very ill suiis her— she is altogether too uncouciously innoi ent— too unassumingly dignified. We trust she will abandon this character— there is nothing in it that is wor- thy of her— there is none of the pure integrity of feeling, in displaying which lies the great triumph of her powers.— It is all false nnd glaring and tinsel— an ignis fatuus which « quivo: atrs with our sensations— and foils all the actress's skill.— L t her " reform it altogether." Mr. YOUNG acted Holla with energy and a martial air. Mrs, FAUCIT'S Cora, with a little unhappy urchin of a child, tried our powers of endurance must severely,— Mrs. FAUCIT is very far from handsome and acts generally ill— and in Cora she surpassed her ordinary self. We have thus Stated our opinion of Mrs. FAUCIT, because the opinion of others is an excellent corrective to that which we acquire » f ourselves— and we suspect Mrs. FAUCIT'S ideas of her- self and our ideas of her are not a little unlike.— We say this with the most perfect good- nature. Mr. Kean oil Tuesday received the magnificent cup • which his brother performers had subscribed to pur- chase for him. Mr. Palmer ^ the father of the Stage)' presented it to him with an appropriate address. Mr. Kean returned a very grateful answer, hut which ( if ive are to believe the reports of it in some papers to lie genuine) was a tissue of bad English and had La- tin. Some of Mi". Kean's admirers will no doubt see in this hut a fresh proof of his genius; hut as we our- selves can see no necessary connexion between genius and ignorance any more than between genius and vice, we shall hope, for the credit of an anyising and accom- plished profession, that the published report of ICean's speech is not genuine.— Times. Monday, a caravan loaded with twenty- five couple of foxes imported from France, by some sporting gen- tleman, passed through Maidstone. Of course no duty was paid for these useful animals, they being run goods. Notwithstanding the opinions so distinctly express- ed in Parliament on the subject of Extents in Aid, and though great abuses were proved, and admitted to exist in practice both as to those and the extents in chief, we regret to state, that no later than last week an extent was issued against a respectable house in the city, labouring under the difficulties of the times, it is high time that the policy of bringing in the crown, in the charac er of a rapacious and re- morseless creditor, to take precedence of all others, and to exact instant payment where humanity might prompt delay, should he fully probed by the investi- gation of the legislature. It seems little less than an absurdity iw leave Ihe determination of such a point to the law- officers only. Those gentlemen, deeply in Volved in their official labours, have neither time nor means to discover the political evils occasioned by the process in question. They must draw the greater purl of their practical information immediately from the persons interested in perpetuating the abuse; audi! is seldom that they can extend their views to ' he el feels produced on the commerce and revenue of the country iu geueral by. individual suffering. JYQUIELLE PUGllISJI. On Wednesday at Coombe Warren, notwithstanding the badness of Hie weather, a numerous assemblage took place lo witness a new feature in the boxing cir c! es— nai":; K r a fight against lime, between Carter and' itobinson, the black, for 40 guineas, Carter having engaged to beat his opponent in half an hour, which lie considered a safe thing, as he had disposed of him in the last fight in IT minutes. Much sporting specu- lation occurred, and they both entered the ring in good spirits. Carter, attended by Crib and Hinner, and Robinson iiad for his seconds Oliver atid Rich- mond. 1.— Carter, as in the last fight, immediately npon setting- lo, went quickly to work w ith his left hand, and nobbed the black in style. Robinson . WHS not able make any re- turn, and he. received four severe successive facers. Carter did as he pleased, hit and got away with much dexterity.— Two minutes elapsfed before the round was finished, when the man of colour went down; six to four on Carter. 2.— It seemed not to be the intention of Hohinson to make any hits, but' merely to prolong the light. He sparred with the utmost caution, hut he was not able to prevent Carter from nobbing him at almost every step.— The man of colour, however, was induced to make a sort of a rally, but he was at length hit down. This round lasted three minutes. 3.— Carter, with, the utmost activity, put in six severe blows. on the cheek of Robinson, and got cleanly away without the least return. A close took place, when Carter got the black's head under his arm, and fibbed him so. severely, that lie fell out of the ring, and Carter upon him. 4.— The lighting was all on the sine of Carter; he planted hits w ith the utmost dexterity, and had he not been fighting against time, any odds must have been laid npon him, as to proving the conquerer. He again held Robinson up and iibbed'liiin till he went dow n. 5. to 13.— So much sameness pervaded the rounds, that it would he superfluous to detail them. Carter, in the seventh round, put in nine successive facers without receiving any return, and Robinson shewed considerable game. Time moved on very fast, and it appeared that Carter, notwith- standing his successful mode of hitting, had by no means made winning certain. The black wa- a perfect taker, and stood up lo receive that sort of severe punishment that sur- prised the spectators. Twenty- eight minutes and a half had expired, when the 13th round being closed by the black's going dow n, it was urged that lie fell without a blow, and it was also asserted that he fell once before, which had not been noticed. It occasioned sume demur, hut it wa& d'cided by the umpires that Carter was entitled to the money. The Paris Journals of Saturday last, mention in an article from Lubee that two English vessels had been stopped by a Swedish frigate off Gottenburg, on the plea that they had not complied with the quarantine law. It is added thai Mr. horsier, the English Mi- nister at Copenhagen, had dispatched a courier to London in consequence of this circumstance. It is generally believed that Marshal Soull, who had previously taken up his residence in this city at the White'Lion inn, embarked from hence in the William Henri/, for Boston in America, on the 18th instant.— ( Bristol Journal) Avery unpleasant dispute has taken place between the Government of Buenos Ay res, and Captain Fa- vian, of the British frigate Orpheus, respecting which the former has published a declaration, of which the following is the substance :— That the Government of Buenos Ayres considered it as an infraction of that constant neutrality British Naval Commanders had al- wavs observed in those seas, that Captain Favian should have received on board his ship several Spanish prisoners on their parole, conveyed there by a British officer, and when demanded, should have refused to surrender thera, That this act of interference and contempt of the laws of the country in which he was stationed, was doubly aggravating, after Hie hospita- lity and kindness practised towards British officers and Subjects, and must be sensibly felt by the Government and people © f Buenos Ayrcs, being so contrary to tbe delicate conduct of the cabinet of St. James, & c.— In consequence of this rupture, the. Government, of Bu- enos Ayres interdicted all communication with the Or- pheus, which removed down the river. This event had created great uneasiness among the British mer- chants, who were thus deprived of that protection, and we make no doubt a serious inquiry will he made into this ailair. The Committee on Education has strongly resnm- mended to Parliament the encouragement of plans for instructing the poor " of all descriptions," and also the speedy appoinltrienl of a Parliamentary Commis- sion, for inquiry into the abuses of charitable funds intended for education. It is said that Ihe great glar- ing instances of these abuses, have incidentally come to light during their sittings— chiefly from distant parts of the country— and it is to be hoped that the re- turns under Mr. Wrottesley's bill for registering Cha- ritable Donations, will facilitate during the recesss the labours of the Commission, which the Ministers and the House have concurredin thinking, should he forth- with appointed. Monday, Mr. Holmes, the Deputy Bailiff of South- wark, attended by Mr. Law, Ihe keeper of Ihe Borough Compter, wailed upon the Right Hon. Ihe Lord Mayor, at the Mansion- house, to represent to his Lordship Ihe crowded state of the prisoners at present in the Bo- rough Compter, there being nearly 70 prisoners con- fined i that small gaol, and of ilie necessity of en- larging the same for Ihe reception of'felons, debtors, Sir, His Lordship directed tbe Deputy Bailiff to at- tend the C" nrt of Aldermnn. and stalelhe circumstance to that Court, with . he fnrt of two prisoners having made their escape ihe preceding night frcm Ihe prison bv sawing their irons off, & c.; whereupon Ihe Courl ordered the same to he referred to Ihe Gaol.

Weave unable lo satisfy " INQUISITOR" as to U- hat has been done, cr what is likely to be done, with ihe large sums col- lected from the public on account of rite PATRIOTIC and WATERLOO FVNDS. We believe both are managed by a few individuals, and we think we have a long time ago seen • some kind ef a Debtor and Creditor statement of the trans- actions of the former— but never one of the latter. We quite agree with our correspondent in the idea, that the Funds of the Waterloo Subscription are equally applicable, in point tf justice, to all kinds of sufferers from that battle, whe- ther Civil or Military; and that they cannot be better em- ployed than in affording relief to the thousands whom its glorious result has reduced to begzary and want. FF^ e would ask our gentle correspondent " SNAKE" whether tee evar published any thing half so severe of his favourite, as is comprized in a paragraph, which we quote in our pre- sent number from one of the most respectable of our daily papers. Xo our Woolwich Correspondent use can only reply, that if the gentleman he names is spending two thousand pounds of the public money in unnecessary alterations in his house, we hope lee, win. be compelled to account for it, by some inde- pendent M: ruber of Parliament. V s communication merits greater attention and a more atten- tive perusal than we ave been able to give it since Friday evening, lie shall l> ave an answer next week. We applaud the spirit of " DON TOMASINO"— hut his arti- cle requires more time than we have to bestow on it to render it ft for publication.

L 0 „ V n 0 A" : SU\ DAY, JUSE 30. Scarcely a post or a provincial paper comes to hand but it brings some accounts of tumults in different parts of the country, arising from the hardships and distresses of the times. It is coldly asked by some, what good can emanate from these riots and dis turbances?— why, none that we know of, excepting that their frequeut occurrence may at last rouse omr Governors from the apathy iu which Ihey seem sunk, and induce them to search a iiltle more narrowly into their cause, with a view to ils amelioration. This, however, we acknowledge, is so mere a chance, that we would recommend uone to risk life or limb lo at- tain it. But how, wo ask, can you reason with a starv- ing man— rendered desperate by seeing his family pe- rishing around him? He is incapable of thought— and madly rushes on de- truclion in any shape. " The Clothiers all not able to maintain The many to them ' longing, Compelled by hunger And lack of other me , ns, are all in uproar, And danger serves among them."— King Henry VIII. Since our last, accounts of disturbances have been re- ceived from the clothing districts in Wiltshire, which have, as usual, been settled for themoment— by the Mili- tary.— Great discontent, it is also said, exists in differ- ent parts of the West of England, and in Wales. The whole originates in the weight of taxation, and in the consequent stagnation of trade. Ministers either hear not, or affect not to hear of these things. If they did, why not propose some remedy > Why not set on foot a general subscription, to relieve the wretches whom their extravagant measures have mainly contributed to reduce to poverty ? We can collect large sums for foreigners, why not do the same for our own country- men } The blind enthusiasm of the country was coined into cash after the Battle of Waterloo— every pulpit resounded with the glorious thetne, and every house was assailed by Waterloo collectors— in consequence, • housands on thousands were subscribed.— Why not recur to Ihe same nieatwi We will whisper the reaso — they would be Considered as conveying a reflection on Ministers for having been instrumental in creating their necessity— and that must on no account be done— one scene of general distress may pervade the country— but it must be hidden as much as possibl Details of disturbances must be concealed from the public eye— their causes must be perverted from their true source— ali must seem prosperous and happy— for their system of politics they ar « well aware is the parent of the present condition of things, and that must be defended. Ministers and their advocates, however, feel that here they are upon rotten ground, and, therefore, wish to suppress as far as possible the whole of the unpleasant theme. They, on that ac- count, deprecate the mention of riots and disturb- ances, and are particularly attentive in all cases to as- sert that thwse which have happened have not been occasioned by want or distress. On this subject The Courier thus comments: — " The riots at Ely ought surely to be a warning to all persons against any writings tending to inflame the minds of the people. For we repeat, as distress is proved ( q, uery where proved?) not to have been the cause of the riots, to what other cause can we attribute them hut to erroneous notions of oppression impressed upon them by inflamma- tory speeches and writings. Now do we wish, itmay . be asked, to keep the truth from them ? No, no: hut let them have the real truth, the whole truth, and n thing but the truth. Do not let them be told that they are suffering, without being told also that those sufferings wiV only be temporary, and have not been occasioned by their Govern- ment ; that what they have already endured ha » been to preserve all that makes life and country dear and honour- able.; for their freedom and their independence, the homes of their families, the graves of their fathers, the altars ol tlieir GOD. All were in peril and all have been preserved ; and the people of the British Empire may safely stand up and claim the praise and the p » st of being THE FREEST, THE HAPPIEST, and THE GREATEST PEOPLE UPON EARTH." It is such contemptible balderdash stuff as Ihis, that Ministers and their attendant Pensioners and Place men, like to read instead of details of distress— and want and misery. They ftel no distress— nor want — nor misery, aud, therefore, either suppose none to exist, or wish not to hear of any if it does. . The Marquis CAMDEN, with places and pensions produc- ing him upwards of thirty thousand per annum 1 was astonished the other day, that the " Men of Kent" should show a reluctance lo vote an Address, expres- sive of their present contented aud happy state- Quite amazed lhat any objection could be started men who had the pleasure of eontiibipti>>£ t of their hard earnings » o income! His Lordship is r,„ d<> uUr quite satisfied wilh the pre- sent st item of things, and very naturally supposes every one else should be so. The " freest— the happiest— and the greatest people upon earlh"— support him and thousands of others in wealth and luxury, and he is surprised at their complaining of the miseries Ihey sustain in so doing 1!— Oh, shame! where is thy blush? The poor PITMEN or COLLIERS, in the neighbour- hood of Tipton and Dudley , have hit on a curious method of making their distressed condition known to the Chief of the Executive Government. Having nothing to do, and their families being in a starving condition,— they have conceived the plan of deputing a number of the ablesl among them to draw up te London two loads of Staffordshire coals— o » e we have heard is destined as a present from these poor creatures to the PRINCE REGENT; and the other ( if they consult their own inlerests) they will take to Camelford House. Where is the man, be he Ministerialist or Opposition- ist, but must feel at every pore for the distresses which have prompted such a method of shewing that it is not idleness— or drunkenness, which'occasions these poor people to neglect their accustomed occupations. They are able to work, and witting as able— and they think to shew their willingness by dragging, like beasts of burthen, these heavy loads after them. The two par- ties passed through Birmingham on Thursday last, on their way lo town.— From eighty to one hundred aro employed in Ihis singular undertaking. We hope no Ministerial interposition on their way will prevent their presenting themselves and their coals at Carlton House. We quite approve of this quiet, peaceable plan of shewing the Prince Regent ihe " prosperous" state of Ihe country— and recommend to the Clothiers — the Iron- workers— the Manchester manufacturers— the various branches of Agriculturists— and all others who are slarvingin the mid tof plenty, tbat instead of rioting and burning down the machinery and houses of their fellow subjects—! hey bring to London in a respectful and orderly manner— some proof of their industry and willingness to work— and that they re- quest to lay these with all due submission at the feet of Royalty. — « c » The Paris and other Continental Papers have fur- uished nothing of interest during the last week. The House of Commons is adjourned till to- mor- row, and on Tuesday it is said the two Houses will be prorogued. As fhe Regent is in excellent health, perhaps he will prorogue litem in person. The freedom of tli4> . Oily is lo l> n given to Prinre Leopold, with great ceremony on thf 12ib of next month, A report has been in cirrul. iti n that the Princess Charlotte intends honouring Ihe i„ rd iV' iyor by accept: Kg an inviTation lo dinner before she lev '' S '. own. We are most happy to remark ihe ungermani d manners •. f this young couple. For several days past, a report hns been current in the political circles, tbat the Earl of Liverpool is about to resign his situation as First Lord of theTrea- snry, and he will be accompanied in his retirement by Mr. Vansiliart, Chancellor of Ihe Exchequer. The retreat of tho Earl of Liverpool is occasioned, we un- derstand, by his declining health ; hjs Physicians hav- ing advised iiim to try the benefit of the Spa Waters.— We shall know, in a day or two, in what heteroge- neous manner Ihe new Administration is to be com- posed. By the British brig of war, Onyx, from Vera Cruz, we have received accounts from Mexico to the 18th of March, which commrnicate the important event of ike Provinces of Tobasco and Chiapa having also en- tered into the plan of Revolution, under a full deter- mination to shake off the Spai. ish yoke. The appear- ance of' he affairs of the Independents In lhat quarter is extremely favourable towards their ulterior object; frequent actions t ke place with various success, and they now begin to feel Ihe effects of Ihe aid'and suc- cour experiensed from Ihe people of tbe Uni: ! States, who supply Ihem with arms, men and other requisites by every means in Iheir power. It was understood thai the Insurgents had taken the city of Orizava, si- tuated near Vera Cruz. A very important point of law, relative to Canal Companies, was stated last week in th House of Lords by the Lord Chancellor— namely, that Ihe speculators in a canal or other work of that nature, will notbejus- tified in destroying the grounds and property of any individual, unless there be a certain prospect of a sufficiency of funds lo complete the work so under- taken lo be performed. An injunction may be ob- tained against such Company, which cannot be dis- solved until the projectors swear lhat iheir funds are competent to fie. ish the undertaking. This throws new light upon Ihe subject, and is a happy omen that the public will be trealed wilh a Utile more respect than they have been by many of our numerous pro- jectors. JUNE SO TH E NEWS. 215 POLICE. QUEEN- SQUARF,, Q,: Monday Mr. Berthourid, a respectable bookseller in Soho- square, was charged with having prohibited goods in bis possession, contrary to the statute. J. Campbell and two ether Excise- officers, sialed, that iu consequence ot" information they received, they went to the defendant's house and found ells of fine black foreign silk, four pair of Ladies' silk shoes, French manufaciui e, and a silk Bandana handkerchief, whiah they seized, and is the same now produced. The defendant said, the silk was the property of a Gentleman residing at his house, hut now gone to Holland; that the shoes were a present sent to Mrs. B. from her Aunt at Paris, and were all worn in Eng- land. The Magistrate said, the Act of Parliament was imperative, and however painful it would be to him. he must fine him in Ihe penalty qf 9l. being half treble the value of the goods, w hich are also forfeited. Mr. Price, jeweller, corner of Richmond- buildings, Soho- square, also appeared to an information laid against him, for having a quantity of Pahnupore, con- trary to the statute. The officers proved the case. Mr. Price said, they came to search the . lodgings of two Gentlemen residing with him, and found a piece of bed furniture he had in use twenty years, it being made a present of to his mother then by Caplaiu Stewart, of Ihe lri » East Indiaman. Mr. COLQUHOUK said, it was hard he should be convicted for such ail offence; he would defer the conviction in order lo give him an opportunity of petitioning Ihe Board, but believed that no good result could be derived from it ; in consequence of Ihis, Mr. P. paid tbe amount of the conviction imposed, being, with coss, about 5l. half treble tbe value of the goods. A private letter from Paris, alluding lo '. he late ma- trimonial festivities, says—" The arrival of the Duchess de Berri on Sunday, and ihe processions and fetes on the following day, drew forth the whole popu- lation of Paris ; but yet a feeling of curiosity was evi- dently the only cause of this immense concourse— ob servaiions on he- person and her dress were a'one to be heard; no enthusiastic shouts beyond those exciled by Ihe Police itself. Upon this occasion, indeed, Ihe whole people, from the Duke de Ber- i himself down to the lowest individual, appeared to have forgotten the common attentions due to a young and interesting Princess, exhibited to Ihe public gaze under such embarrassing circumstances. The King- sal uncovered, now and Ihen forcing a smile. The Duchess d'Atigou- leme, seated by his side, was nearly concealed by a large parasol. The Royal Bride, whose dress was better adapted lo Ihe drawing- room than lo Ihe expo- sure of the streets of P. iris, nodded to Ihe people, while her husband sat in stupid silence, wholly inat- tentive lo her. The whole had a mournful appear mice: and, except Ihe buz of curiosily, resembled the entrance of Louis XVI. on his forced return from Varemies, rather than the joyful fele, which the French Papers have described in such glowing colours The National Guards lined l!< e Boulevards and Ihe streets through wheh th; procession passed; and, upon liking up their ground, had Iheir arms examined afresh, which dislruslful precaution gave them not a lil le discontent. Several arrests look place on both cia\ s, but especially on the night of the illumination." NEW PEWTKNTHKV, MII. LBINK.— The quadrangle of this prison is now completed. The Governor, with Ihe task- masters and mistiesses, & e. have taken pos- session of their •• parlmenls; and last week the pri- soners front the different gaols were removed I hit her. The rooms in vv hi< l> Ihe convicts will reside, are very romfwrtable f r individuals v. ho have forfeited their cl. om lo remain nt large; IIK- j are about IS feel by 6, lo. iv, with an arch, and glazed window, iron bedstead, table, and stool. The whole of I he in are warmed by means oi tires placed in the passages, and proper mea- sures are adopted to ensure regular ventilation. The rooms all look towards the centre of a circle ( which is divided by brick wails into court yards for exercise), w here the principal task- master resides, and commands a complete view of all that is doing.

The following lamentable event occurred lately at Knels- ton, near Swansea, and ought to operate as a caution to those who are in tlie habit of using poison to destroy rats or other vermin. Two youths, brothers, of the name of Hos- kins, the one IT, the other 19 years of age, being in a progressive state of recovery from a fever, requested their mother to give them, instead of a medicine prepared for them, some brimstone and ( reacle. A basin, containing a preparation of arsenic for destroying rats, being placed cm a shelf, and the unfortunate youths supposing it to be brimstone and treacle prepared for thein by llieir mother, took each a portion of tins deadly poison, and shortly after expired in the most- excruciating torture. On beingopened, the cause of this calamity was instantly discovered. Ver- dict of the coroner's jury^ r/ ccidental Death. The follow ing melancholy accident occurred on Sunday evening, on the river Swale, near Favetshara, Kent. A party of persons, chiefly females, had spent the day in a water excursion to Whitstable, and had arrived at I'aver- sham- creekVmoiith, on their return home, when it was proposed to'proceed to Harty- ferry- house to take tea. Af- ter staving thereuntil near nine o'clock, they all ( being ten in number) re- euibarked in a small boat, and were in the act of going oif to their vessel, which lay at anchor near to the opposite shore, and to which they had almost arrived, when the boat turned" over. The ferryman cross- ing the river in his boat at the same time with eight passen- gers, went to the assistance of the unfortunate sufferers, and succeeded in rescuing two men from their dangerous situation. They also dragged into their boat the lifeless, body of one of the women. Proceeding in their humane endeavours to save others, their own boat, lining under a pressure of sail, and keeling . still more from their reaching over the side, was almost filled with water. Another party of men immediately pushed off from the ferry way in a third boat, and happily succeeded in saving the ferryman and the whole of ins passengers, and also the two young men who were in the first boat. The remainder, viz. one man, six females, aud an infant, met a watery grave! 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 excur- sion on a party of pleasure iu the course of the day a* far as Richmond. The tide w as going dow n rapidly ; and n waterman in a sculler perceiving their intention to go through ttie bridge, went alongside and apprised them of the danger of such an attempt in the then state of the River. Tlie women were alarmed, and were, at their request, put ashore above bridge; after which the six men in the boat row ed back, and made an effort to shoot through - ttie middie arch, when unfortunately the boat went down head foremost. Four of the party were washed off and drowned. Ttie other two stuck to the boat, which came up immediately, and, with assistance from the shore, which was fuit of spectators, weie saved. Two ot ttie bodies have, been found. One of ihe persons lost w as brother of one of the sup, ivors. Saturday morning; between six anil seven, two men, dressed as plumbers,, knocked at the door of. a house in OevonSiiirerplacf, Haddington, and requested to examine the pipes, staling, that as trie main pipe iiad burst, t; ey might be inundated : the credulous servant admitted them, u.: ii whilst one of thein pretended to took at the pipes, tiie otiier contrived to carry off a silver jug and snutiWs'- stand. Indeed, scarcely a day has passed for some time witnout informations being received at Bow- Street of houses being robbed by men entering them on the pretence of being plumbers: they are dressed in aprons, with tools, and in every respect, resembling men of that trade. Mr. Sharp's house, the musician, near Brunswick- quai r, was also robbed of some plate, on Saturday, in this mariner. About ten o'clock on Monday night, Mr. W. Woodhatcb, of Marchmont- street, Tavistoek- square, having arrived at his house from the country, leaving his horse at the door in care of a boy, previous to its being sent to the livery stable, a villain came, and, mounting ttie animal, gadoped off at full speed. An awful instance of sudden death occurred, between ten and eleven o'clock on Monday morning, in Charter- house- square. The two- penny postman knocked at a gen- tleman's door to deliver a letter, which 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. A melancholy instance of suicide took place at Brighton oil Monday evening. Mr. Moon, jun. confectioner, of St. James's- streef, who has been labouring under a melancholy state of mind for some weeks past, drank a whole phial of laudanum, and medical aid proving ineffectual, he. expired at half past eleven o'clock at night. He has left a wife in a state of mental derangement, with three small children. It is unquestionably true that Ihe Prince Regent was advised by his Ministers to write a- lellcr to the Dey of Algiers, and which was transmitted'to him by Sir Ed- ward Pcllcw, now Lord Exmouth. The letter ex- pressed sentiments of high regard for the Dei/, and staled it to be to Ihe mutual advantage of each nation, that Ihe harmony and good understanding which had so long and so happily subsisted between both should not be disturbed ; and concluded as Ihe loving friend of his Highness. The letter was accompanied by pre- sents— pieces of velvet, of fine cloth, a pair of pis- tols, & c. In return for which, a loving epistle was, received from Ihe Dey, together with an Arabian horse, and other presents^ Subsequent to this, his Majesty's ship Perseus, commanded by Capt. A'Court, conveyed out an English Minister with a commission to all the Barhary States, for the purpose of strength- ening the harmony and g » od understanding which so happily subsisted between Great Britain and the " legi- timate''' Piratical Princes. There is every reason, says an Evening Paper, lo suppose that the sleeping soldier is fast recovering from his feigned or real malady; he now sits up every day, eaLs biscuit, and swallows half a pint of wine ; upon being desired, he shows his tongue, but hitherto he has not spoken; ha is very, weak, but gaining strength: last week he was put oil animal food. Symptoms of amendment were shown iintnedi- / ltely that preparations were made t « send him off to Betiilera. ! A letter from Naples, inserted ih the Quolidiennet a Paris Paper, says, that her Royal Hrghness tbe Princess of Wales appears to have settled at Malta, where she arrived in a Turkish fehfcCa. She is said to have received urgent invitations not to continue a ro- mantic journey, derogatory tr> tl; e dignity of her fa- mily. Her Royal Highness is accompanied by William Austin, whom she look under her protection inlSOI. On Tuesday the King's Hanoverian massy plate and pictures left London on their way back to Hanover. Mary- le- hone beautiful new church is to have a win- dow of stained glass, of considerable, dimension*, placed over Ihe altar ; Ihe design is completed, but the artist is not yet finally determined upon. An account has- been rea l to- the Royal* Society e? Edinburgh, of the sleeping woman of Dunninald, near Montrose, by the Reverend Junes Brewster.—. Her first sleeping fit lasted from the 27 ih to Ihe 30th of June, 1815. Next morning she again fell into, a sleep, which lasted seven days— without motion, food, or evacuation. At Ihe end of- this lime, by movm ® * her hand and pointing to her mouth, i! was understood she wanted food, which was given to her; but she re- mained in her lethargic slate- till Ihe mh of August, six weeks in all, without appearing to be awake, ex- cept on IheSOth of June. Her pulse, for the first two weeks, . was about 60, Ihe third week 60, and previous to recovery it was at 70 to' 72, Though extremely re- duced, she gained strong! h. sa rapidly, that before ti. e. cod of. August she worked: regulm ly- at the harvest. LLOYD'S LIST, TunsuAr, JOKE 25. —— The Philip, Chazel, from Charleston to Bordeaux; wnf struck by a whale on the 24th.

FURTHER PARTICULARS OF THE FIR li IN ALOE RUGATE- STREET. On Fiiday the Lord Major held another examination into the circumstance* tit this mysterious tire. Ati immense crowd was assembled, and among others there werb a number of gentlemen- from ihe.' different lire- offioes. Mr. Dunkiu was first called, He gave a de- tailed account of the manner iu which ihe two persons, ( as has already been staled in a preceding page,^ enter- ed his bed- room and subsequently ill- treated him. From the present account, however, it appeared lhat the parties had blindfolded him by lyingtwo handker- chief's around his eyes previous lo dragging him from his bed. They also made Oft incision in his hreast with a knife, and would have proceeded to further vio- lence if one of the party had not cried out, " don't harm him, for he is the friend of art Irishman." His wrists also were much marked wish the cord used in tving him ; he could not account for such ail outrage, as he had never done an injury to ; lny individual. Herbert, a palroie, said he was the third person who reached Ihe spot, and assisted in knocking at Ihe doors and shutters of the place, and calling out loudly. A man got in al tiie fan- light over the door, which he opened. Mr. Dtinkiu was in the street in his shirt, crying, Goad Gou, they tied me baud and fool, then covered and robbed me " Mr. Dunkin - then fainted and fell down, and was carried lo the doctor's. When witness and others entered the house by the front door, there was a gteal deal of smoke, but they did not perceive an y flame. Mr. Dunkin soon after came running back naked, and wished Lo enter Ihe house, but he would not suffer it. No flames appeared in the front until a con- siderable time after Mr. D. rushed into the slreet. T- Robinson, a fireman, had examined the ruins. On Ihe third staircase of Mr. Cocker'on's house he found a quantity of plate; some was perfect, the remainder was injured by the fire ; the whole belonged to Mr. Dunkin. A party wall which stood between the Iwo houses remained firm ; and how the plate of Mr. D. was conveyed to Ihe adjoining premises could not be conceived. Mr. Cockerton's plate was in the usual place. Here the Lord Mayor observed, that Ihe case seemed involved in more mystery than ever, and wish- ed to know if Mr. D. could throw any light upon the circumstance. Mr. L). answered in the negative. So- phia Brown had the care of Mr. Diinkin's plate ; she usually locked it up in his eloset: it wa3 not used oil the day before the fire, nor did she see il. Witness heard a noise in the street before the servants came to alarm her in her bed room; she slept oil the floor over Mr. Dunhin ; she and her fellow s? rvanls escaped over the leads, and saw tiie flames pro- ceed from the mar of the house in Shaftesbury - place. Another female domestic deposed lo being alarmed when the servants came to her room ; she in- stantly thought her master was murdered, as he had said in her hearing, that the dog had harked llie night before. The other servants, however, did not hear the dog bark, and though it was stationed about Ihe cellar and passages, it escaped Ihe conflagration. The person who entered the fail light, aud subsequently opened Mr. Duukin's door, was called, hut did not appear. This the Lord Mayor regretted, as his evi- dence would he material, in show how the door was fastened. The Lord Mayor, havingvno'w heard all the evidence that could lie adduced, wished to^ know from Mr. Dtmkin what he would wish further to have done. Mr. Dtinkln wished to offer a reward of 100/. for the apprehension of the perpetrators. The Lord Mayor . added, that he would write to the Secretary of State upon Ihe occasion, and, independent of a reward, would endeavour (!) procure a pardon for the accom- plices in tills iief.-. ions ouljage. Here the investiga- tion closed. We have since heard that Mr. Dunkin did not escape out of the door of his own house, but through tbe house of Mr. Coclterton— whose family he first alarm- ed. He, two female and two men servants got through Mr. Cockertou's sky- light, and from thence went through his house into the street. CORN EXCHANGE.
