THE Learned are not the only Persons who suffer under these disorders. People of a sedentary life and occupation are equally liable thereto, as it de- stroys the strength of the muscles, aud renders them, for wailt of use, uuable to bear action; the circulation, there- fore, deprived of this considerable assistance, soon grows lanquid; vital heal diminishes; the humours stagnate ai. d become vitiated; and the secretions and natural cvacua lions not beiug well performed, the body remains loaded with excretneutitious humours, the acrimony of which preys upon the constitution, strength is dissipated, aud a variety of disagreeable consequences ensue. The Cordial Balm of Gilead, bv its softening, healing, and touic qualities, as well as by its salutary etiects, atiords a sure prospect of returning streng'h, and a c'fr- ttiu hope of muscular invigoration to th. se who are de:> i- itated by premature or excessive indalgeucies: henc- arise weakness of sight, vertigos, loss of appetite, and mental decay , The Cordial Balm of Gilead most wonderfully cherishes nature, and wiil support the life of the aged and infirm Iu all inward decays, debility, lowness of spirits, relax- ation in either sex. whether hereditary or owing to youth- ful imprudencies, this Medicine will afford the most won- derful relief. .

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE, CADIZ, July 24.— The height of that despotism formerly experienced in Spain, in personal out- rages, had never gone beyond the arbitrary arres- tation of those who walked freely through the streets, but the despotism of Ferdinand has become so refined as even to arrest those who are already prisoners. On the 19th instant, during the silence of the night, the following Liberales, confined at Ceuta to hard labour, were torn from their pallets, viz. Arguelles, Alvarez- Guerra, Merino, Rico, Goycochea, Sarrano, Calvo, Puga, Mereguer, Rerez- Rosa, together with several others, and in the very same state in which they were seized, were con- veyed on board a xebec, under an extraordinary parade of armed troops. There they were instantly loaded with irons, and the vessel immediately put to sea. Their destination is unknown. Some per- sons think they are to be conveyed to the desert island of Alboran, opposite to Merilla, near the African coast, but others are extremely apprehen- sive of some fatal event. NAPLES, July 22.— A Decree of the King, dated July 17, orders the full and entire execution of the law which forbids the subjects of his Majesty to apply to the Holy See for dispensations, briefs, and rescripts, in spiritual and ecclesiastical con- cerns, excepting on matters which solely concern the conscience, without having first obtained the permission of the Sovereign. PARIS, August 15.— According to a Royal Or- donnance, the manufacturers of full stuff's, or of cotton and linen blended, or of any fabrics in the least similar to those prohibited from foreign countries, cannot off, r their manufactures for sale, without their exhibiting a mark of their being French ; and also of the number uuder which they ; were entered in Ihe registries. .,.,., » We learn from Triple", that several vessels have sailed from that port. It was at first said that they were to join Lord Exmoath's fl';>- t, and that the Caf4i| it » orders to place themselves under his V nrt'. ship's command; but it now appears certain that they are not destined to attack the KegerfcVeS, and are merely to act as vessels of observation.— The Divan and the Court of Vienna ale on the best iei'ins. An unfortunate event occurred on the 29ih of July, in the fWutiiuue of Luntau, in the depart- ment of Allier. Ai two o'clock in the afternoon, the lightning struck a harn of M. Bonlat, the Mayor. The bain, twelve haystacks, the stable, thirty head ot horned fhtiie, and a woman, the wife oi a farmer, peii., hed in the Haines. The ceremony for the proression for the vow of Loui* XI11. took place this day. Monsieur, the Duchess d'Angouleme, the Duke and Duchess de llerii, lo^ ith- r vvi h deputations of the principal law courts, repaired lo rVolre- Dame. The proces- sion moved through the principal streets, which were lim d with soldiers oi the National aiitd Royal Guard, and were crowded with spectators. It srems that I. ouis XIII. enjoyed an uninter- rupted succession of victories over Austria in the year 1037, and was inspired on the occasion with a leelmg so fervently pious, that h.* made a decla- ration, and caused it to be formally registered, by which he pl. iced his own person, thai of ilie Queen, and his children, his crown, his kingdom, and his people, under ihe special protection of the Virgin Mary. He also ordered a solemn procession to take place on Assumption Day, in whicn all the principal Authorities were to appear. The festival has been uniformly observed in l-' rance until the Revolution, and ii is now revived by Louis XVIII. Several journals have spoken ol a youi. g man, who, they say, blew out his brains before his fa- ther's eyes, because he list) tetus< d him a sun) of money which he had demanded: this young man is not dead, as was reported, but still lives, and employs the remainder of his life miraculously prolonged to him, in repairing the outrage com- mitted against God, society, and his family. He has accordingly signed a declaration, in which he confesses his otieiice, and expresses the deepest contrition. PARIS, August 10.— The Duke of Wellington, after having assisted at the celebration of the birth- day of the Prince Regent, lelt London the day fol- lowing. He lauded at Calais on the 14tli it! ihe morning, aud departed from thence at half past three in the afternoon for Brussels, accompanied by the Marquis of Worcester. The Duke of Wel- lington will amve at Paris on the 21st. There is actually building on the Seine a steam- boat, with neither wheels, oars, nor any extensive machinery. The machine which causes it to move is called the aerial battering- ram : it acts iu the direction of the boat. Without discomposing the force, as wheels, oars, and other, objects of that kind do. This machiue, by its lightness, and the small space which it occupies, presents the advan- tage of being applicable to the smallest wherries, as well as to boats of the largest dimensions. MADRID, August 1.— Letters from Cadiz of the 25th ot July mention the arrival, ou the 23d, of a vessel from the Havannah, which is indebted for the safety of its voyage to its superior sailing; the sea being infested with corsairs of the insurgents of Spanish America, which capture all who navi- gate under the Spanish flag. On the 22d the St. John the Baptist, coming also from the Havannah, and belonging to a merchant of Cadiz, was captured in sight of that city, at a distance of four leagues, after a long contest. She was taken by boarding, and had five men killed aud two wounded; the res! of the crew were sent ashore in a long boat. The Asia aud the Sabina frigates, aud a brig of war, were sent out in chase of the pirates. The mer- chants of Cadiz have also fitted out four vessels at their own expence, for the same purpose, which must be at sea by this time. This measure has a little tranquillized the commercial men, who are not, however, yet at ease with respect to several expeditions which they expect daily from different possessions of Spain in America. ' I he number ot insurgent corsairs has greatly increased lately.— From Cadiz eight have been seen cruizing oft the coast; they are principally schooners, carrying six. guns; they obtain provisions from the coast of Baibary, in the kingdom of Morocco, where it is thought that they also sell their prizes. We hope that the Government will take effectual measures to destroy these plunderers. It appears that the death of the Queen of Por- tugal is the cause of the delay of the arrival of the Princesses. It is said that they will not set out until after the mourning, and the conclusion of the formalities of the marriage at Rio Janeiro, which cause a further delay. According to others they will arrive immediately, and the Dnke of Infantado is about lo return to Cadiz to receive them. PARIS, Aug. 17.— Some foreign journals, either very ill- informed, or very ill- disposed, are pleased, in speaking of our situation, and, in particular, of the state of the capital, to announce troubles and dissentions which never existed, and to entertain their readers with accounts of discords happily impossible, since there never was a more intimate and touching union exhibited as an example and lesson to families. In this way also they exile from Paris persons who are residing very tranquilly there, without any thoughts of removing, and shew how little they know the wish of the King and the cha- racter of his Government, in supposing that there could exist in the departments a single functionary who does not obey the orders transmitted by the Ministers, or who follows any other line than that from which all well know they cannot deviate with- out beiug immediately removed.— Journal des De- batS MADRID, August 2.— The Government has or- dered the most active researches for the discovery of the murderers of the English Messenger who was assassinated in the garden of the Retiro. We view with pleasure the English expedition destined to repress the audacity of the pirates.— Spain, which has at aP times suffered from th. ir vicinity, is interested in the success ofthe enter- prize confided to Lord- Exmouth : but there is a report current, which, though doubtless destitute of foundation, has nevertheless given rise to much political discission. We still possess the fortress of Ceuta, on the coast of Africa, and that position h„ s cttst us so many sacrifices, that hardly any thing could indemnity us for its loss; a proposal, therefore, to rede even for a moment, qr •< n< h- r any pretext, th'e fortress of Ceuta, in order to facilitate the expedition, Would be extremely disagreeable. Gibraltar is almost opposite; and that point < tf sup- port, which England has fortified with so . much c^. re, reminds us of the- importance ofthe only one which remains to give us a share in the dominion of the Strait. ANCOna, August 3.— The St. Joseph, Captain Hebert, of Marseilles, is arrived in our port from Africa. He states, that the Dey of Tunis has im- paled a corsair who captured a- French vessel, and that the vessel has been restored to Captain Didier, who Commanded her; The Same person announces, that several works of defence havebeen constructed on the coast at Bona. At Algiers they have armed all the ramparts with the cannon taken from the vessels, and the Captain adds, that the Algerines had a considerable tamp at Tremesen, near the aqueduct ot Babason, which is protected by a tor- rent. The mountain towards the sea is covered with country- houses, which have gardens enclosed by walls. In several parts forts have been raised. The Algerines intend to retire to these country- houses if the bombardment of the city takes place. They are all Supplied with water, aud the little woods Which surround them are very agreeable. The most common tree of the country is the fig- tree, called the Christian. The Dey of Algiers has not 12,000 men of re- gular militia at this moment, but oh the com- mencement of the war he can easily raise between 30 antl 40. iKl0 men. It is easy to see that such a force could not long keep the field, since they have uot magazines or stores, and, as they live by pil- lage, must soon exhaust the country. There is a feeling here against the English, from an opinion ( perhaps altogether unjust) that they, are the cause of the miseries of the Christians iu Africa. If they had presented themselves in a commanding manner, the Regencies would have been glad to make a solid peace, of which the English might have prescribed the conditions and the guarantees; but they have treated ou equal terms; they have submitted to contributions, and instead of humiliating- the pirates, have increased their insolence, Italy sutlers much from the actual state of things. Its coasts are continually menaced, and as they will not destroy these pirates, but only make them suspend their outrages, it will be all to do again. PARIS, August 18.— The following account of the state of a Department which has frequently engaged public attention, I receive from most un- questionable authority. " The Department of the Gard and the town of Nismes continue to groan under the most intolera- ble oppression. All authority is in the hands of the Catholics, not in those of the most respectable of that persuasion, but in those of the most disre- putable characters, actuated at the same time by the fiercest spirit of bigotry and revenge. Ac- cordingly, nothing can be compared with the grievances which the inhabitants of that country are made to endure. Here, the Mayor orders all lights to be put out at the houses of the Protestants after eight o'clock ; there, he prescribes cockades of a particular size to be worn by them, and awards fines and imprisonment against those who wear none, or who wtar such as happen to exceed or fall short of that size. A particular quarter ofthe town is assigned for the Protestants to walk in; if they venture to outstrip those bounds, they are hooted and lapidated by the populace. At Nismes, and under the very eyes of authority, things have come to such a pass that the Protestants, excluded from the public walks, have only a little narrow street in which they can freely circulate. The National Guard consists of 3000 men, and it will be hardly credited, that that number includes but two Protestants ; the remainder of the latter have been disarmed. Meantime it is endeavoured to impose on the public by the exhibition of recantations, ob- tained by deception or violence. These pious ce- remonies afford the Public Functionaries an oppor- tunity of displaying their hypocritical zeal, they are to be seen parading the streets in procession, attending the churches with tapers in theif hands, and giving all other ostentatious marks of devo- tion. The assassin of the Abbe d'Esgtigny had been promised his pardon, if he would become a convert to the Catholic faith, and in such an extre- mity he did not hesitate to embrace it. We have been spared, however, the scandal of seeing an assassin go unpunished, and his execution has accordingly taken place. It is adopted as a regular system to promise pardon to the accused on certain conditions. Thus General Mouton- Duvernet quitted his retreat, and surrendered to Government upon an implied promise made to his wife. His defence was incomplete, owing to its having been pre- concerted between him and his Judges, that he was to be made a Signal object of Royal clemency. Under this impression, he was induced to abstain from revealing and setting forth in his defence whatever might be injurious or offensive to Govern- ment, or the Princes." A countryman, named Michael Krauss, has just died in Hungary, aged 125 years. He had been married three times — by has first wife he had twenty- two children, and two by his second. At the age of 114 he was married for the third time, A horrid crime has been committed at Carrobet, near Montmirail. M. Parmentier, curate of the parish, and his servant, have been assassinated, by repeated blows of a slick, a cleaver, and a bayonet. Ihe murderers are unknown. Two grinders and a • obler are suspected, who were seen wandering ia the neighbourhood in the evening. FROM THE LONDON GAZETTES OF SATURDAY AND TUESDAY. BANKRUPTS.

[ FROM AN AMERICAN' PAPER] In Mr. Poulson's paper of the 26th of June, a writer who takes in hand to describe the locust, says, that in 1796 we were visited by an immense number of locusts; " At that time ( says be) I remember it was stated that this species of locust Visited us in every seven- teenth year, and after remaining a few weeks, buried themselves in the earth. The trees and fences Were covered With their shells, from which they had ex- tricated themselves soon after their appearance, find on their departure, the earth was perforated with thousands of holes, about a fourth part of an inch in diameter, through which they had desended, as it was said, to their place of retreat, where tliey spent the remainder of the period of seventeen years." I only mean to relate what I know from personal observation, with respect to the manner in which the locusts first make their appearance, and also their manner of retreat, which is very different from that given by the Writer above alluded to, Who says, that after remaining a few weeks, they buried themselves in the earth and that after their departure the earth was perforated with thousands of holes. Now, the fact is, these thousands of holes were perforated as they came up out of the earth. I Well remember, when a boy, my father lived in a cabin with an earthen floor, which was as hard as it could be made with clay mortar. Through this they came in abundance, and seemed to arrive as soon at the face of the earth, as those that came through a softer soil; they were all covered With a brown shells Being young, I was curious to Observe their motion— in the evening, my brother and I stepped a few paces from the cabin, aud saw them crawling up the blushes, Where they fastened themselves and began to creep out of their shells which opened on their backs, between their wings. When they came out of their shell, they were as white as tallow, and in the morning the bushes were hanging full of them by the two fore- feet, as much like candies on rods, When dripping, as any thing I have ever seen, and as white aud soft as when they came out of their shell; but nearly as large as ever they grew) being swelled to about double the size that they were while confined. In this situation they hung all that day in the sun, and against evening were turned nearly to their natural colour, and the day following were able to creep about, and began to fly; they were very plentiful that season, more so than I ever remember to have seen them, though it is about fifty years since, and I have seen at least three years of the locusts since. As to the precise number of years between their appearance, it seems a little uncertain ; but the time within the last fifty years has been about thirteen, fourteen or fifteen years between each time of their return. Now to return to the progress that they make when they come to maturity. The only loss we sustained, though the grain was almost covered with them, was in destroying a great many branches of young apple- trees, as they do with other tender branches, by de- positing their eggs in them, which iu a few weeks disappear, but in what way I know not. This I knoW, that the next time they came, they rose out of the ground, no other where than about the place that trees or bushes stood when they had foimerly been here; and ybu might nearly know the space the tree covered, by the ho es the locusts came out of. After they deposit their eggs, many of them rot away in their hinder- parts; so as to making holes nu the ground at this time, is out of the question : but frotn the eggs disappearing in a short time, and the locusts coming out of the ground only where they had trees or bushes to deposit their eggs in, I am inclined to believe, that, like all other insects, they are produced from the seed of the former generation. Many things have been said as to their depth in the earth, one thing is certain, they have been dug out of cellars the year before they came out, several feet below the sur- face, in the same form aud size as when they come , out of the ground. f LONDON. Accounts from Bastia, dated Aug. 2, state, that Intelligence from Africa announces, that the bar- barians have no idea of submission. The Dey of Algiers has made every arrangement for a retreat, and does not seem disposed to listen to any terms of accommodation. At first they were labouring Upon the fortitications, at which the people assisted in crowds; but now the project of defending the to. vn appears tolie abandoned, a garrison will be left in tije citadel, and a retreat will be sounded. The French troops in Paris are inspected and manoeuvred with - as much care as if rtiey were im- mediately to enter upon active service. They appear ill excellent order. It is said that the Royal Guard is to be encamped in the vicinity of Paris wiihin two or three weeks. This report excites much speculation. Prince Ypsilanti, formerly Hospodar of Mol- davia and Wallachia, died on the 26th of June ((>. S.), at the age of fifty- six, at Kiew, where he had resided for some years, and received a pension rom the Russian Government. He had returned that very d . y from St. Petersburg, had conversed cheerfully and in good health with his family, and died during the night. Four ol his sons serve in the Russian army. Letters from Germany contradict the report of the Emperor Alexander having given the Govern- ment at' Finland to the son of the Duke of Holstein Eutin. It is also untrue that the King of Sweden is ill, and that the trauqaillity of Norway has been disturb, d. The Emperor of Russia is very attentive to bis Navy. A new 74- gun ship was launched ou the 27th June. This is the second new ship of the line launched within a few months. Anion* the last American papers Which have been received, is one from Philadelphia, of the 17 b ult. containing', on the authority of a private letter from Camden, South Carolina, an account of the discovery of a conspiracy among the negroes in that quarter. The intended insurrection was to break out oil the night of the 4th, and it is said to have been planned so far back as last Christmas. The first object of the insurgents was said to lie to set lire to ihe town in one part; and while ih^ people wefe engaged ill extinguishing the con- 11 ^ ration, the arsenal, which contained a quantity of arms and aiuum. lition. was to be seized. The mat- population of whites was then to be mur- dered, and ilie female spared. Some of tfie former were acknowledged to be deserving of their lives, lint the determination was to destroy all. The gaol of Camden was full of suspected negroes, who, for , uit of space, were said to be stretched on the floor, witli scarcely room to move more than their hf- aiis. Ihe < hief circumstances had been con- fess d by the criminals themselves, whose trials had commenced. Six were even reported to have been condemned and execut d.— Ot the correctness oi these stall ineiits we must be allowed to entertain doubts. Camden is not more - than forty leagues from Charleston, and the papers and letteis from the totter place, which reach to the 20th uit. do not allude, even in the remotest way, to the cou- spiracy in question. A ludicrous circumstance occurred during the late visit of the Duke of Angouleine to the depart ineuts:— tin bis passage through the town of Lons le Saulnier, u public functionary, as he approached, began to cry out Vive l' Empereur! but', recollect- ing himself, he changed his tone to Viae le Hoi ! From the uhundunce of the heart, the mouth speaketh, and this, no doubt, was the case ol the poor public functionary. The Duke, however, was pleased to see it in a different light, and re- garding his error something like that of Sir Francis Wronghead, in the play of The Journey to London, kindly interposed to prevent a prosecution. A fleet," supposed to have been Lord Exmouth's, was seen oil the Rock of Lisbon on the 2d inst.— This tallies exactly with the period of his leaving England, the 28th u! t. We shall probably receive, in the course of a few days, accrounts of Ins Lord- ship's arrival at Gibraltar, where he was to receive a reinforcement of large gun- boats, before his sail- ing for Algiers. Lord Exmouth is in possession of a rom plete plan of the woiks at Algiers. It has been asc er- tained that our line- of- battle ships can anclior withm 1511 yards ot the Mole. The town is exposed to open view from the ships, and lies completely within range of Congreve rockets, shot, and bombs. The mortals which have been provided for throwing the latter are very large. It is said, that a frigate was sent some time ago to bring off' the English Consul and his family ; as, should they fail to make their escape before Lord Exmouth's arrival, they might find themselves in a perilous situation. By a letter received at Lloyd's on Tuesday morning, there is a report that the Algerines have taken one of our Lisbon packets. The packet alluded to is the Walsingham, Captain Bullock ; she lauded a mail at Lisbon ou her passage to Gib- raltar, and was there armed, and sailed from thence on the 2-' Jd of June for Malta. It is, however, on the other hand said, that the Walsingham packet had arrived at Malta, and sailed again for England the 14th of July. The Chesterfield sailed from that island the 22d of July. The Hecate sloop of war, Captain Matthews, is arrived at Portsmouth from the East Indies, the Cape of Good Hope, and St. Helena. She left St. Helena eleven days after the Northumberland : the intelligence she brings is, that Bonaparte continued to confine himself to his habitation, and the bounds for his exercise, which did not subject him to Ihe personal attendance of any but his own companions. He appeared to have a much stronger aversion to the visits of the Foreign Commissioners than to those of the British — Sir Hudson Lowe lias, it is said, issued orders that the Officer on guard is per- sonally to see that Bonaparte is in safety, by paying him a visit at the expiration of t very six hours, by night as well as by day — The Company's ships Lord Castlereagh and Cambridge outward- bound were to sail from St. Helena the 30th of June. Saturday's Gazette contains an Order in Council proroguing Parliament to the 4th of November. It. also notifies that Lord Algernon Percy has been created a Baron of the United Kingdom, by the title of Baron Prudhoe, of Prudhoe Castle ; that Lieut.- Colonel W. Cox has received the honour of Knighthood ; and Gilbert Robertson, Esq. been appointed Consul at Philadelphia. On Saturday morning several waggons, laden with silver, proceeded from the Mint to the Bank One of them, in passing through Threadneedle street, broke down. It contained three very large chests; they were obliged to be unpacked, and the porters from fhe Bank attended, and conveyed the bags to the Office. Private letters from Barbadoes, to the 15tli July, stale that the island was so perfectly tranquil that it was found unnecessary t- o. Vcmlinue martial law. It had been repealed for some days by the Procla mation of the Governor. It is notorious, that when an American Captain takes over h ship load of passengers from England or Ireland, if lie has any demand upon them, real or fictitious, he. has, on his arrival, the right of selling them for & term of years. That nothing is more common than this artifice of th* Captain, of pretending that the wretched people « ere brought out by him on the condition of devoting their in- dustry for certain periods without reward ; and that they are liable to be resold during their servi- tude, iii the event of the death, or even at the caprice of their first purchaser, is. proved by the advertise- ments th . t frequently appear in the American papers, wherein it is quite common, even to this day, to see announced for sale, " the remaining time of the Indentures of a strong healthy Irish woman, fit for all kinds of housework"—" a few healthy Irish servants, of both sexes, between seventeen and twenty- one, to be seen on board the American brig , just arrived from Cork," & c. These are horrible truths; th- y cannot be contro- verted ; and though there are both Hibernian and German Societies instituted in all the large towns south of Connecticut, and who are called by the. Americans, by way of ridicule, Redemptioners, they have not the means of repurchasing the free- dom of their countrymen, but can only do all in their power to arneli irate the condition of their servitude or slavery.— Morn. Chron. THE ROYAL SOVEREIGN YACHT.— This superb vessel, the most splendid, beyond all comparison', ever launched in England, came out of Deptford Dock- yard, last week, and will shortly siil to Brighton, for the use of his Royal Highness the Prince Regent. Of the exterior it may be unne- cessary to speak. The descent to the state rooms is by an easy winding staircase, the balustrades of which are mahogany richly carved and gilded, and the wall is pannelled in the same style. 1 lie, after and centre cabins, and the passage communicating with the Lord in Waiting's cabin beyond, are pannelled with crimson damask, bordered with mahogany enriched with gold. The ceilings and doors are of fine mahogany, the pannels beautifully bordered with carvings, so richly gilt and highly finished that they appear as if of the solid metal. Chairs and sofas of crimson damask in frames of mahogany and gold surround the rooms. The doors, of which there are four in the centre cabin, are covered with mirrors. All the windows are of pi ite glass, and both iliese and the blinds d aw up like those of a coach. Their deep sides are painted scarlet. From the ceilings are suspended gilt chains, as if for Grecian lamps, bat these are to su pend the fables, that they may sway with th( vessel, when in motion. In the after- cabin th>- rudder post, which conies down there, is julai I on three sides With mirrors, so that none of the wood appears. Below the stein windows are ottomans of crimson damask. Ihe carpets are in shades ol deep green and yellow. The room of the Lord in Waiting is pannelled in white and gold ; the chairs of scarlet leather. The inhabitants of some parts of Scotland have been thrown into great consternation and alarm by the shock of an earthquake, which occurred at about eleven o'clock on the. night of the 13th inst. and was distinctly leit, about six seconds, at Aber- deen, Forres, Inverness, Perth, Dunkeld, and Mon- trose. All these places, with their intermediate vicinities, were considerably agitated. I he shock seemed to proceed in a south- west direction. No material damage was occasioned by a visitation so unusual in that part of the world. Wednesday se nni'; ht, as a man was opening the ground for the purpose of laying the foundation of a house at Stoke i> t. Miry, near Taunton, his spade struck against a pot, which, on being examined, contained one hundred silver coins, in good pre- servation, principally of Elizabeth and James I. Tuesday a drunken sailor happened to tail against an oyster- woman's stall at the end of Kingsgate- street, Holborn, which he overset. ' Ihe woman in her passion pushed him away, and he fell unfor- tunately into the street at the time a hackney- coach was passing, when, before lie could recover him- self, one of the wheels passed over his wrist and broke it. lie was taken iu the same coach to the hospital. Extract of a letter from Limerick, August 12.— During our Assizes, which have not closed, three men were found guilty, and passed by our door this morning, to be hung, for a murder committed near a year ago, about nine miles off, of a man and his wife. He had taken a house contrary to the will of the country people ; a party went to his house and beat him for taking it, on which he informed a neighbouring Magistrate, when, shortly after, about forty entered the village where the man lived, and after placing two men as guards on each house in the village, they attacked his house, and murdered him and his wife in a most shocking manner, stab- bing the woman first in different parts of her body, to make her put away an infant she held in her arms, to save her from their fury. A daughter, about fifteen, escaped, and the infant. They said they had no ill- will to the man, but killed him to prevent others acting as he did. A man who lived next door to the unfortunate family, some time after got so uneasy in his mind, he could not rest till he had discovered the matter, by which means it was found out, after being concealed perhaps for months. Friday last Joseph Wheeldon was executed at Derby, for the murder of two children ( his nephew and niece.) No motive adequate to the commis- sion of so horrid an act was surmised previously to his trial, nor was any sufficient cause suggested in the course of the evidence. When he was brought out to the fatal drop, he looked up with out much apparent emotion to the beam from which he was in a few minutes to be suspended. He engaged in the usual devotion with earnestness, and at the close was considerably agitated. The drop fell a little before one o'clock, and he died without much convulsive struggling. On Wednesday there was a most numerous Meeting of the Common Hall of the City of London, held at Guildhall, pursuant to a requisition made to the. Lord Mayor, for the purpose of ta^ inginto consideration the present distressed and alarming state of the country ; and to recommend to the Government such measures a* should be calculated to afford relief to a suffering people. Mr. Benjamin Flower - catTe forward and addressed the Meeting. He stated, that the subject which that Meeting had to discuss was one of the greatest im- portance^ it was not a matter of speculation or remote interest, but was one which came home to the bosom of every man in the nation. There were numerous documents on which the Resolutions they shou'd be called oil to adopt were founded ; these were chiefly contained iu Reports from the House of Commons, it wis acknowledged by every Member of the House of Commons, that the agricultural distresses of the country had arisen to the greatest possible extent— whole parishes were deserted by their inhabitants; tenants were every day giving up their houses,— arid the whole of the commercial and trading in- terests of the country were most deeply affected; all parties joined in one general complaint respecting the badness of the times; in short, the distresses of the country were unparalleled, to a country which once boasted of its independence And its wealth, pri- vations unheard of in former times were submitted to; our distresses were proclaimed it) every Gazette; and numerous as these were, they were small in proportion to those which the public scarcely ever heard of. These distresses were lately admitted by some of the most exalted personages in the country, and pro- claimed by them in public ad ertisements. He be- lieved he now had the sanction of the Livery of Lon- don for staling, that the immediate cause of the dis- tresses of the public was the twenty years war iu which the country had been engaged; and during which, no less than a thousand millions of money had been expended— i larger sum than ever was expended before, iu the si me time, by any nation ill the world. All the burdens of the country had increased in pro- portion to that expenditure. Indeed, a long war must be Hiiilous to any nation ; but this war was unex- ampled in its profusion.— lie then entered into a dis- quisition on tiie political consequences which had ifceu tlie result of the war, forcibly reprobating the restoration of the present King of France to the Throne of that country, contrary, as he averred, to tlie inclinations of tlie people. Iu conclusion, he re- commenced the alio itiou of sinecure places and pen- sions, and theest ibiisment of a rigidsyslern of economy in every department 6f the ^ tate, as the only means of preserving the nation from inevitable ruin. Mr. Thompson regretted the absence of Mr. Waith- man, as there was not a man in the City of London to whom the country was more indebted, and he hoped the Livery would soon have the happiness of seeing him again on those boards, burling his thunderbolts against those who were the authors of the calamities and oppiessions under which the coui. tr. had long been suffering. The present Assembly, lie said, could not surely be considered in the light " of a faction, as they had met o second even I lie objects of Ministers themselves— to proclaim, with a view to relieve, the distresses of the country ; and therefore it was im- possible to contemplate any Meeting more important in every point of view, tor it went to acquaint the people with the sentiments of the City of Loudon, and to convey to I he e ir of Royalty what no individual approaching the Sovereign, either from Manchester- square or any other place, would dare even whisper to him— Adverting io the late Meeting at the London Tavern, lie in, erred the object of that Meeting was not to relieve the poor, but io delude the people, and to give them a false idea respecting the causes of their distresses, it was a mere mockery lo suppose that the distresses of the people con. d be relieved in the way proposed.— He then made some observations on the inadequacy of the suburiptions entered into for the pro- fessed object, indulged in sarcastic personal allusions to several of the principal personages whose names h id ; ppearedin tliellsl. in ridicule of what lie deemed ..... mm, i . i/. tl mrci- n. ity, tut little accordant W illi their vaunted p. triuiUin, and actual commiseration for tlie sufferings of their distressed fellow- subjects; and after remarking ou the magnitude of the public debt, and of the standing army, recommended reform iu the representation of the people iu Parliament, as Ihe primary means of exterminating a practice of op- pression, from which, he said, the nation would not otherwise be emancipated. Mr. Hunt went principally over the same grounds. Several Resolutions were then proposed, and car- ried nearly unanimously, of which the following is the substance :— U. W. MATTACKS, Agent to RICHARDSON, GOODLUCK, and Co. the CONTRACTORS for the present Lottery, begs leave to remind his friends, that the drawing will commence on the 17th of Next Month.— The wishes of the public have been at. tended to, in regard to the drawing, as an EQUAL NUMBER of Tickets will be drawn each day, and the FIRST DRAWN PRIZE, the FIRST DAY, will receive in addition, £ 40,000! which may make . it £ 80,( 101)! as Ihe Scheme contains 2 Prizes of £ 40,000, 2 of £ 30,000,2 of £ 10,01) 0, & c. Sec. con- sols and money : thus there is every inducement to an early purchase, wliirh U. W. Mattacks begs leave to recommend to his friends and the public, respectfully soliciting their favours at his office, Wire- street, Colchester. That the distress, which weighs down the agriculture, the commerce, foreign and domestic, and the manufactures of Great Britain, unparalleled iu the history of our country, and deeply alarming to aft who have at heart its true greatness, real freedom, and lasting prosperity, is the natural result of a corrupt system of Administration, and of a long and profligate waste of the public treasure, dur- ing a period of upwards of twenty years warfare.— That the oppressive weight of taxation, Under which the people groan, is producing rapid depopulation, increasing and widely extended pauperism— threatening consequ" iices the most ruinous lo all classes and ranks of the community — That all attempts to redress, or arresl the progress of these overwhelming evils by subscriptions, however laud, " able the motives of the subscribers, must prove inefficient , and adord but a tritfing and temporary relief even to the most depressed class of the people.— Thai it is as insulting to the understandings, as it is injurious to the independence of the people, to receive a miserable pittance, in the shape of alms, fr an those placemen and pensioners who derive their unmerited and exorbitant incomes from the very laxes which constitute the grand cause of the people's sufferings.— That the standing army, at all times an object of jealousy to the British people, is of a magnitude in the lime of peace unparalleled •, the enormous expence of which being one of the causes of national poverty, its immediate reduction is indispensably necessary— That our national distress imperiously demands the most prompt abolition of all useless places, and sinecure pensions, which constitute so grievous an addition to our insupportable burthens; the immediate adoption of the most rigid economy in every branch of the public expenditure, and a reform iu the representation of the people in the Commons House of Parliament, the want of which representation, having been the primary source of our multitudinous evils; and that n Petition he presented to bis Royal Highness the Prince Regent, praying that his Royal Highness will be pleased to assemble Parliament at the earliest period, and recommend to their most serious consideration the dis- tressed state of the country, and the important and indis- pensable means of relief suggested. The inhabitants of Exeter have lessened their parochial rates full 10001. per annum, by esta- blishing a pottery, and employing the poor ( herein. A poor woman, named Griffin, was struck dead by lightning on Saturday, near Andover. Friday, James Tuck, landlord of the Bald- faced Stag public- house, on Enfield Chare Side, between Enfield and Barnet, was brought up to Hatton- Gar- den Office, in the custody of Charles Brown and William Read, sen. officers, charged with the wil- ful murder of Mr. John Draper, an officer belong- ing to the Court of Requests, at Enfield, whose body was found ( as stated in last week's paper) in a well in the rear of the prisoner's house. The Coroner's Jury, which sat on the body, returned a verdict of accidental death. After the inquest, the brother of the deceased caused the body to be examined by two respectable surgeons, who dis- covered some marks of violence; one of whom was decidedly of opinion that the deceased came to his death by the blows he had received. It being also ascertained that the deceased was robbed of a pocket- book containing a quantity of bank- notes ; and it being also proved, upon the oath of Charles Johnson, that the prisoner Tuck followed the de- ceased into the field, and that he heard him say to two other men, who accompanied him, D— u his syes, we wilt mill him ; we will kick him; and that he was nch seen afterwards until he was found in the well. Brown, the officer, staled to the Magis- trates, that the Coroner was to hold a fresh inquest that day on the body; in consequence of which the prisoner was committed for further examination. On Monday the prisoner was again brought up, and after an investigation of nearly four hours, in addition to the former evidence, several circum- stances transpired of a very suspicious tendency. Mr. Joseph Clark said, he is a surgeon, and lives at Enfield, that on Saturday, the 10th inst. by desire of Mr. David Draper, brother to the deceased, aud some other friends of his, he went to inspect the body of the deceased, and found it had the marks of several blows and bruises, on various parts of the face, one particularly ou one cheek, and another under the left ear, at which lie expressed his sur- prize to the prisoner, who was present. ' I he pri- soner said lie could account for the nature of the blows, as he was fighting with the ostler, aud after- wards with a haymaker. Witness did not attend at the inquest, but stated iu writing having seen ( he body, which, from its being drowned, and the pre- vious scuffle, lie thought could account for the marks. A'ter the inquest, witness was applied to again to inspect the body ; he opened the head, and front examining it he was of opinion he did not die in consequence of the blow, but from suffoca- tion ; but the blow appeared to be of sufficient vio- lence to render him insensible. Witness has seen the well, and is of opinion the deceased could not receive the blows by falling into it. There was a gentle ascent up to the well, and the water was between nine and ten feet deep. There had been a rail round it, but it was broken down aud lay on the ground near it. The well was partly covered with a kind oi thatch. Mr. William Henry Holt Said, he is a surgeon, and lives in Enfield: he examined ihe head ot the deceased, in company with Mr. Clark, aud he thinks the violence of the blow was sufficient to cause insensibility; it was under the left ear, ou the side of the neck, and caused a great contusion and effusion of blood from the left, ear; and it is witness's opinion, that if the deceased had not been found in the well, it would have caused his death ; and he is further of opinion, that the wound was not received by his failing into the well. Mr. David Draper, sen. said, he is brother to the deceased, and is a tin plate- worker, and lives in Enfield. On being informed of his brother's death, on Friday morning, he went, about nine o'clock, to the Bald- faced Stag, where he saw the prisoner, Mr. Tuck, the landlord, and witness de- sired him to take care of his brother's pocket- book, as he understood he had a quantity of notes about him. The prisoner said, he supposed he had none. The prisoner then conducted witness aud his ne- phew, David Draper, jun. sou to the deceased, to an outhouse, where he shewed him the body. Wit ne> s desired the deceased's son to examine the pockets of the deceased, which he did, and found only two large pocket- books, or letter- cases, which, on examining afterwards, were found to contain only summonses, executions, and other office papers, ut no notes. In his breeche » * pocket was found a purse, containing nine shillings aud one halfpenny The prisoner infoimed them that the deceased had a scuffle with the ostler, and was also wrestljng w ith haymaker, aud had been found drowned that morning, in the well, by the maid- servant. David Draper, jun. * » id, he was in company with his uncle, the lasf witness, and that what he said was true. „ * Tbt! deceased was summoning officer for the County Court of Requests, for the district of En. field ; and it was stated by Mr. Thomas, a school, master, at Barnet, that ou ihe day he was at th Bald- faced Stag, he had a large quantity of notes iu his possession, two of which were traced to th prisoner, and identified by Mr. Thomas Reynolds of Cheshunt, Herts, one oi them having been paid by the prisoner to his brewer ou the morning after the deceased was at his house. Being questioned respecting them, he said he never took or changed any notes; they must have been received by his wife, and he could not tell from whom she had them. He was again remanded, lo afford further opportu- nity for inquiry as to the notes which had been paid into the hands of Mr. Draper, iu order to establish their identity. Thursday Turk underwent a third examination at Hatton- Garden Office; but nothing material was elicited iu addition to the above, and he was again remanded. The first description suffering is the manufacturers. To restore them to full employ is impossible; but by a determination of Government to secure tlieexcusive use » f our manufactures in ourio onies, ami a general resolution to throw aside every article of foreign pro- duction, would considerably lessen that portion of tne difficulty. And that these men might not be living on tl. e diffeient parishes witbebt labour. it wou d la expedient fur Government to furnish a pail of the means for their employ, receiving manufactures, at a given ratio, for the pecuniary asSisl juce f irnulicd. And a? there can remain no doubt Lut hereafter tl. e home demand will revive, and perhaps the foreign demand increase, such deposits would, in a two- foil manner, be useful to the finances or the country: it vvouid keep up a demand for the raw materia a, well as employ the poor, and be a sto^ k to supply probable future demands, and which, sboii'd hey occur to any great extent, c. ou'd not besupp icd, when the manufactories have been long dormant, and the men dispersed, or perhaps abso. ute. y iost to their country, ' fhe Second class out of emp'oy are agricultural labourers. The present season of tlie year is favour- able for their occupation; and uo further consider, itiou is required for them lhau such reductions iu rents, 1} flies, and taxes, or their equivalent in the price of produce, as will enable the farmer lo return lo his usual mode of cultivation. The third class is ihe artificers, naturally depressed by the depression of the other classes. For them relief appears easy. The fictitious restoration of agriculture will afford many employment; the fictitious" rrvtval of manufactures wili assist: and as the nation is pledged to many monumental edifices oi'our transcen- dent victories, an immense body nn\ beemp o\ eu in their structure— so th it, to iesseu tbe consequences of that war whose glories we seek to perwtif ilie columns we raise may not only . bp demon", i live our giory iu the field, hut of our chanty and con sideration in the Cabinet.

Under the pressure of any great calamity, the miird naturally wanders in search of some point of safety ; and although many of its efforts prove ineffectual, it successively pursues some new expedient, till at length, by perseverance, it reaches an asylum. By this na- tural impulse to subdue the difficulties that assail us, the burthens of life become less ponderous than we estimate them when viewed at a distance. It is this which constitutes the principal source of our hopes, by softening the rugged road which more or less we are compelled to toil through iu our earthly journey. The few who are without its influence stop at the first impediment, and augment the load which op- presses then by a pusillanimous non- resistance to its obstruction. Iu the present calamitous situation of our country, it is consolatory to observe, that what- ever the magnitude of our lffs, v'fFMVfe'lfVat' forfitudfe to uphold us which is rarely exerted in vain, nnd that we have around the greater victims of our misfortunes friends and guardians to aid and urge them forward during the eventful struggle. VVe are led into these remarks by Ihe beuevoleut exertions of the noble and tlie rich, to rescue from the fangs of immediate want the multitude of the lower classes suffering from the cessation of their employments; 11 net we cannot, in our estimation, devote our weekly duty to a more useful purpose than echoing the charitable views which actuate their Association, that, far as the empire extends, there may be a combined union of all who have ought to spare, however humble the mite, to alleviate the rigour of the existing unexampled sum of individual poverty. As has been observed by the Committee oftlie Association, 110 radical remedy can result from mere charitable contributions; tbe disease is want of employ; aud howeverdesirable it islo relieve immediate necessities, permanent comfort cannot be insured without some substitute is discovered for the great deficiency in thecal! for labour— In the remarks which we presume to make, we are only justified by the magnitude of I he subject. The continued pressure of such numbers of poor 011 Ihe parochial, rates, must soon reduce all but the alliueut to au equal degree of poverty, aud with their full the greatness of tiie nation must fade, if its safety even as au independent Mate be not endangered. It wou'd appear, at the present moment, that we had an excess of population, and that extensive emigration only could remove that evil; but we are to bear iii mind, that this population is our strength 111 the hour of danger, aud it is the call of prudence to retain it at soine considerable sacrifice, rather than, from sordid views, alienate so large a portion of tbe defensive power of the kingdom.

Notwithstanding the extraordinary care taken by the French Government to conceal its deleiiuiuutioa to restore its military establishment, the prepara- tions aud measures ailoplid for that purpose are gradually disclosed, iu comfuunicatious irom the frontier fortresses. Letters from Lille 01 the ijilh, contain the following particulars respecting the aug- mentation of the Flench army : — It is reckoutd that the number of the military ot all ranks who are put upon half- pay is 300,000, aud lhat those who been discharged with unli lulled furloughs may be estimated ut 100,000. In order to draw as much advantage as possible from this mass, wh eli s a constant burden upon the ' treasury, the French Government has resolved to ini reuse the army oa active service to 200,000 men, and to this ei. d t> make a choice from the iwoabove- uieiitioned < lasse* and a levy of inm who have never served. 1 lie iVi, uister at War, who in his former situation had an opportunity to know and appreciate ah ihe principal Generals who haye served under Bonaparte, | a » laid before his Majesty a selection of persous from among them, who are known to the o. uauuy, lu tile- presumption that the union of these different elements may have a favourable iiiflnej. ee on ha dispositions of the troops, and reuUtr the tuxyj a true support of the Monarchy. * Letters from Baltimore of the 24th July, and papers from Virginia of the. 19th, have arrived.

The greater number of the persons Who emigrated from this country are in a most miserable state, not being able to find any employ- ment, and being without the means to return to their country. The following is from the Paris papers received on Thursday :—" An Englishman, who, either through ignorance or wilfulness, rode his horse on the foot- path at a quick rate on Friday evening, near the Boulevard du Temple, struck down a Woman; he immediately galloped off; a hue and cry was made after him, when two National Guards turned out of their post to stop him.

Richard Symonds Toynes, M. A. Fel- low of Catharine- Hall, Cambridge, is presented, by fie Master and Fellows of that Society, to the Vi- carage of Ridgewell, in this county, vacant by the death of the Rev. William Bradbury. The Rev. Peter Eade, Rector of Cotton, Suffolk, a gentleman with a family of twelve children, has, without any solicitation from his parishioners, most liberally made a reduction of 201. per cent front his tllhes. We have been favoured with the following par- ticulars respecting the visitation of the Bishop of London at Harwich :—- Alter the ceremony of con- h. nation was ended, the Bishop, accompanied by Mr. Archdeacon Jefferson, proceeded to the Na- tional School, to inspect that institution. The school- house is a commodious brick building, erected by the Corporation in the year 1813, situ- ated on th.- eastern side of the town, parallel with and adjoining the Church- yard— The children were arranged on each side of the room, and the singers grouped together at one end, with their teachers standing before them. A little in advance ol the children, ' on each sine, stood the ladies and gentle- men who compose, the Committee of the establish- ment. Colours were suspended at the top and bot- tom of the room. The whole, formed a coup d'ccil highly gratifying, tying, and strikingly impressive.^— On the entrance of the Bishop at the western door, the choir sang an appropriate hymn with excellent effect. His Lordship paused until it was finished, and then passed through the. school. He examined . the Master and Mistress, and conversed with the members of the Committee, who were severally introduced to him by his Worship the Mayor ot th.- town.— His Lordship spoke in high commend- aion of the spirit with which this institution is conducted, and of the beneficial effects that will be | likely to ensue therefrom. A donation was left by his Lordship, for the boys and girls, in the hands of the Lady Secretary, the distribution of which was submitted to her discrimination, i: i proportion to merit. 1 Yesterday se'nnight Frederick Cheetham Mort- lock, Esq. was elected Mayor of Cambridge for the year ensuing.— On the same day Thomas Whittred, Esq. Senior Common Councilman, was elected an Alderman, in the room of the late John Mortlock, Esq, and Messrs. Thomas Coe, jun. Wedd, Ingle, and Hignell, were also on the same day elected Common Councilmen; but Mr. Wedd, it is under- stood, has declined the unexpected honour. By an Act of the last Session of Parliament, a penalty of 2001. is imposed on any brewer using ] sugar,'' or any ingredient whatever, but malt or hops, in the process of brewing.— A penalty of5001. is also imposed upon druggists, or any person what- ever, selling to a brewer ingredients of any kind, to be Used in the process of brewing. IMPORT OF FOREIGN GRAIN.— The ports are definitively shot against the import of foreign corn and flour for the enduing three months. The ag- gregate averages for the last six weeks, which re- gulate the imports, were— Wheat 76s. 5d. — Barley 30s. Id.— Oats 22s. 3d.— Rye 42s. Id.— Beans 34s. 7d. — Pi as 34s. ttd. The averages of Wheat for the last week for regulating import were 80s. 2d. but these weekly averages are without interest for the next six weeks. Early on Thursday morning a fire broke out on the premises of Mr. Robert Wayling, farmer, of Tillingham, by which considerable damage was occasioned ; and there being, from several concur- rent circumstances, great reason to suspect that they were wilfully set on fire ( a diabolical practice which, we lament to say, has been recently fre- quent in this part of the country) the Magistrates for the division of Dengie, with their usual alacrity, immediately proceeded thither, to examine into the circumstances; from whose investigations, it is hoped, the perpetrators of so vile a deed will be discovered, and consigned to deserved punishment. A fire broke out about eight o'clock in the morn- ing of Tuesday se'nnight, ill the work- shop bf Mr. George Mason, builder, in Tacket- street, Ipswich, adjoining the back part of the Theatre. It was soon discovered that the flames had communicated to the The tre : the most resolute and persevering exertions alone saved this building from threatened devastation. Very little of Mr. Mason's stock was saved, only the bare walls of the shop remained ; but the Theatre sustained no other injury than the destruction of part of the dressing- room. Wednesday se'nnight an inquisition was taken at Hitcham, Suffolk, on view of the body of John Reynolds, an infant three years of age, who fell into a pond the- previous day and was drowned. Ver- dict— Accidental Death, On Wednesday se'nnight an interesting little girl, named Eleanor Harvey, was unfortunately drowned in a pond at the bottom of a garden on Pound Hill, Cambridge. She went to fetch some water, and it is supposed slipped under the railing which had been placed as a precaution, and when discovered, about an hour after, she was quite dead. At Norwich Assizes, yesterday se'nnight, Tho- mas Moy, aged 32, a farmer, occupying nearly a hundred acres of land, at Binham, and having a wife and seven children, was capitally convicted of stealing eighteen sheep, the property of Philip Allison, a farmer, of North Elmham. On the 29th of May last, the prosecutor had put eighteen sheep nine ewes and nine wethers) in a pasture which he occupied at North Elmham. On the morning of the 30th he missed them ; and on the 18th of June following, being in search of his lost property, he found them at Binham, on the prisoner's land, along with seven more. He recognized his own eighteen out of the twenty- five, although they were not brand- marked, and had been shorn, without wash- ing, since they had been taken out of the prose- cutor's field., Mr. Allison was enabled to assure himself with the greatest certainty that these were his own sheep, from the • circumstance of five of them being cosset sheep; and one, particularly tame, and which went by the name of Polly, on his calling to her, came and liclked his hands and face. The other four also approached him, on hearing the sound of his voice. One of these tame sheep had five remarkable spot? on the ear; and another had a place on its side where the flies had been troublesome. He was thus enabled to swear positively to the identity of all the cosset sheep, and the remainder were of the same description with those he had lost. A nephew of the prost- cutor, who accompanied him in the search, corro- borated the above evidence. The prisoner, was immediately apprehended, and being taken before a Magistrate, made and signed a voluntary and full confession of his guilt, acknowledging that he and a man named John Knowles, his husbandry ser- vant, went together on the night of the 29th of May to Mr. Allisons lands, and took off from thence eighteen sheep, which they drove to the premises of the prisoners lather, at Thursford, putting them for the might in a lean- to, behind the dwelling- house, and the next morning the prisoner removed them to his own farm ; these, he further acknowledged, were tile eighteen sheep claimed by Mr. Allison.— John Knowles, who had been in- dicted as an accomplice in the robbery, but was now admitted as an evidence for the prosecution, proved the same facts; and also, that it had been agreed between him and his master that he should be paid for his time..— The Jury, after bringing in a verdict of guilty against Moy, lor the above felony, acquitted him, under his Lordship's direction, o;. a second indictment, for stealing the seven other sheep found on his premises, and which were the property of Williams Stalling, th re being no evi- dence in this case adduced on the part of the pro- secution. , The following were also capitally convicted, and received sentence of death William Hipkin, alias Lack, for stealing eleven sheep from William But- ler, of Houghton, eight years ago.— Armine Storey, for Stealing a fat sheep from E. Lane, of North Walsham. — George Knights, for stealing a bay mare, saddle, a nd bridle, from the stable of li. Holmes, of Tivet: shall. — W.

Moy, who is left for execution. The under- n Jentioned, whose crimes originated j from the riots that took place at Downham, on the ' 20th of May hist, were also found guilty, and re- ceived sentence of death ;— D. Harwood, T. Thody, W. Youngs, and J. Pearson, charged on the oath of J. Baldwin, one of the overseers of the above parish, with having assembled together, with divers other persons, in the streets, and conducting them- selves in an unlawful and riotous manner, armed with clubs and other weapons; Amelia Lighthar- ness, Lucy Rambelow, W. Bell, Edward Millon, and William Galley, for stealing a quantity of meat from different butcher's shops in Downham; also Elizabeth Watson, Margaret Jerry, Hannah Jarvis, Elizabeth King, and Charles Nelson, for destroying and taking away a quantity of wheat meal and flour from the mill of William Baldwin, his property; and John Blogg, for stealing two pair of Shoes, the properly of John Parkinson. The first two prisoners, D. Har wood, and T. Thody, were left for execution; the remainder were all reprieved before the Judge left the town.— J. Steam, con- cerned with the above in riotous conduct, was sen- tenced to seven years transportation.— J. Jerry, H. Bone, J. Bowers, J . Howers, J. Cracknell, J. Law- rence, and T. Plea sance, were bound over to keep the peace, and to appear, if called upon, at the | the next Assizes. Frances Doyle, charged on the Coroner's Inquest with the murder of her new- born male bastard child, at North Walsham, was acquitted of the murder, but found guilty of concealing the birth, ami sentenced to twelve months imprisonment. Underwood, Grimes, Wright, and Mullender, for assaulting the excise officers in the execution of their duty, at Caistor, near Yarmouth, were sen- tenced to twelve months' imprisonment; Hopwood, Woodhouse, Chase, and Dodson, for the same offence, to be imprisoned six months ; and Carman one month. i The City business was not commenced until one o'clock on Saturday, when the following prisoners were" capitally convicted :— H. Langton, charged with uttering a counterfeit check, knowing it to be forged, with the intent to defraud Messrs. Kett and Back of til. 14s. lOd.— R. Steward and W. Gunton, for breaking into and stealing from the dwelling- house of Mr. S. Smith, on Bracondale- hill, near Norwich, a number of pieces of gold coin, and sundry articles of jewellery.— This robbery was attended with some very unusual and aggravated circumstances on the part of Gunton, who was at the time of the robbery paying his addresses to the servant- maid, left* in charge of the house during her master's visit to yarmouth, and the prisoner's own mother was sleeping in the same bed with this servant when the robbers broke into their chamber, and threatened them with death unless they re- mained silent.— Also Edward Edwards, for stealing a quantity of leather from the premises of Mr. Jo- seph Gaze.— Gunton is left for execution, the others, are reprieved.— Some peculiar and favourable cir- cumstances appearing in the case of Langton, much interest was made in his behalf; the Grand Jury, the Petit Jury, and the prosecutor, all joined in recommending him to mercy. An inquest was lately taken at the Fox and Hounds, South minster, on view of the body of Wild Stammers, a very promising youth, aged fifteen, who met his death in consequence of a fall from his father's horse, which be went to fetch from a field near the dwelling- house. On Tuesday se'nnight Mr. John Hopkin, a small farmer at Downham, near Ely, put a period to his existence by hanging himself. He had been in a low and desponding way for some time, which is sup- posed to have been brought on by the pressure of the times. An inquest has been taken, and Ihe Jury returned a verdict of Lunacy. — About three months since, a farmer in the same parish com- mitted suicide under similar circumstances, MARRIED.

From an early • hour the Court was crowded to excess), particularly by ladies of distinction; amongst them w; ere Ladies Cranley, Onslow, Turner, & c. About twelve o'clock Lord Cochrane entered the Court, accompanied by Sir Francis Burdett and several other friend's. His : Lordship, attended by his Secretary, took his seat at the table with the Gentlemen of the Bar. Mr. Adolphus stated the indictment, which charged, that in the .54th year of his Majesty, Charles R. De Berenger, Sir Thomas Cochrane, Andrew Cochrane Johnstone, R. Sandon, A. M'Rae, and others, were duly tried by a Jury of the country, at Guildhall, in the city of London, before Lord Ellenborough, Chief Justice, and convicted of divers conspiracies and mis- demeanors. That oil a subsequent day in Trinity Term, the defendant, Sir Thomas Cochrane, was brought into Court, and adjudged for his offence to pay a fine of lOOOl. and to be imprisoned for twelve calendar mouths in the King's Bench Prison, during which lime he was to stand in and upon the pillory for the space of one hour, opposite the Royal Ex- change of London, between the hours of twelve and two. That ( he defendant was committed to the cus- tod\ of William Jones, Esq. Marshal of the said Prison, in execution of his said judgment and sen- tence. That the said Sir Thomas Cochrane after- wards, before the expiration - of the said twelve calen- dar months, for which he the slid Sir Thomas Coch- rane was so sentenced to lie imprisoned as aforesaid, an.' without the said fine upon him, the s » id Sir Thomas Cochrane, having been paid or satisfied, did, in March following, escape from the custody of the said Maistral,& c. ' Mr. Marryal, for the prosecution, after some intro ductory observations, said it would be sufficient, on the part of the prosecution, to state, that Lord Coeh- rane was seen in prison on Sunday the 6lh of March; that he was found to have escaped a day or two after, and that he wag not re- apprehended until the21st of the same month. Dunns the interval between the escape and subsequent arrest, he was seen at large by several persons, ami his re- apprehension took place in the House of Commons, where he was found some hours before the time when the Speaker usually took the chair. The Marshal, on receiving information of his Lordship being in the House, proceeded thither with his assistants, and arrested his prisoner, for whose detention he had previously offered a reward of 3001. The Learned Council concluded by observing, that, in the event ofconviction. it would remain for another trihuiia, to apportion the meed of punishment. The escape of Lord Cochrane, and his re- apprehen- sion, as stated in the indictment, being proved, his Lordship rose, and observed, that the ill success which had attended the endeavours of those who, on former trials in which he had been engaged, acted nominally or officially as his counsel, induced him, 011 the present occasion, to decline their assistance, and to undertake the task of defending himself. That defence would be made to rest on two or three funda- mental propositions-; and he should maintain, in the first place, that the Marshal of the King's Bench Prison was influenced by improper motives 111 this prosecution, supposing any offence he had committed; and, secondly, so far from any offence having been committed, he had only done that openly, and for a laudable purpose, which others were in the constant practice of doing with the connivance of the Marshal, by means of bribery and corruption. He trusted that the Jury, whom he had then the honour to ad- dress, would consider as their duty, and would even be so instructed from the Bench, not to confine their judgment to flit bare fact laid in the indictment, but, on the contrary, to found their verdict on a full con- temptation of all the circumstances, with a view to Understand rightly, not the conduct only which he had pursued, but the motive and intention by which he had been actuated. It was impossible for him not to have observed, previous to his taking the measure Which was the subject of this prosecution, that the very person who set it on foot had been repeatedly accessary to the absence of other prisoners committed to his charge; anti whether this was or was not n breath of his duty, it was not unnatural in him ( Lord Cochrane) to conclude that he had an equal claim to the same indulgence. He was prepared, however, to contend, that a mere eacape, if it must be so called, was not, as such, an act of criminality, or a violation of the laws; its criminality must depend on the pur- pose with which it was made; and if the escape was made, not with a view of absconding, not with a view of defrauding creditors, or eluding the ultimate judg- ments of the law, there could be nothing criminal in the attempt. So far was the Marshal from regarding his departure in the serious light in which it was now represented, or describing it as an indictable offence, and so well did he then understand the true object which he ( Lord Cochrane) had in taking this step, that he had proposed a compromise; and he should produce the letter of Mr. Jones, addressed to Mr. B. Cochrane, offering to provide the means of return to the prison without notice, by sitting up for him a whole night accompanied by a confidential turnkey. The charge against him was, in point of fact, not that he had withdrawn himself for a short period from the custody of his gaolers, but that he had not done it in the ordinary way, by corrupting them. He was anxious to state, that his real object in leaving his confinement, was to denounce, in that House of which he was a Member, the scandalous abuses which he had witnessed, and at the same time to vindi- cate himself from the calumnies that were circulated and the oppressions which had been heaped upon him. That this was his sole design was manifest and un- disputed. Though no one was originally privy to his intention, none had since doubted it, not the Marshal himself, who invited Mr. Basil Cochrane to use his influence in inducing him ( Lord Cochrane) quietly to return. At the very worst, the quitting the prison under such circumstances, and for the purpose which he had in contemplation, was but an irregularity, and could amount in no view to a criminal offence. It was natural to one who had been long suffering for acts~ of which he was incapable, to embrace the earliest opportunity of vindicating himself, and of re- minding the House that their sentence of expulsion had been reversed by the suffrages of the people. Instead of being so fortunate, however, as to be al- lowed this opportunity, he was seized in the House by the Marshal and his assistants, and dragged to a pestiferous dungeon, where he was confined for a period of twenty- six days, and from which he was not removed till his health had suffered so materially as to endanger his life. The Marshal had not appre- hended him upon any sudden or accidental informa- tion which- he might have received, for he had learned from Mr. Basil Cochrane that that was Ihe day when it was his fixed intention to make his appeal to the House of Commons. He then thought proper to select this particular moment for replacing him in a state of the most rigorous and inhuman confinement, as if he had detected his prisoner in the commission of some criminal or dishonourable art. In Ihe late Report of the Committee of the House of Commons might be found an accurate description of what was called the strong- room, in which he was kept for twenty- six days in the gratification of his prosecutor's malignity ; and subsequently removed to a garret, snaking' an eutire term of three months close imprisonment. He was not, however, delivered from the strong- room till his: health was so rapidly on the decline, that his pby- • sicians, Drs. Buchan and Saumarez, declared his life to be in danger unless he were immediately removed. He trusted, that the Jury would not be disposed to beconie fheHnisfr'reitirts of the prosecutor's vengeance. If an offencebad been committed, it had been already severe y punished; but lie had endeavoured, he hoped successfully, to prove that no offeuce had been com- mitted. It was an act accompanied with no corrup- tion, neither with the breaking through of wails, nor the bribery of individuals, proceeding from no inten- tion of absconding from justice. The Jury could not, therefore, pronounce him guilty of this charge, if they wished to re, tarn the highest of all rewards, that which had supported him in his adversity— a consciousness of innocence. The Noble Lord, after some further remarks, said he had but two words more to add, and these were to express the surprise which he felt at the conduct of Counsel whom he had employed to advocate his cause in the first indictment which had been preferred agaiust him. That gentleman had thought proper to unite his defence with that of the other defendants on the record, and had thereby acted in direct op- position to his wishes. He meant not to ascribe this to any improper motive on the part of his Couusel; but he felt it his duty to state, that whatever might have been the cause, the effect was peculiarly unfor- tunate to him. He had also to remark, that the Couusel who had appeared against him on that occa- sion, and whom he did not then see i 11 Court ( Mr. C. u rney)— Mr. Gurney rose and said, I am here. Lord Cochrane in continuation observed, that that gentlemau had actually received retaining fees from , him. had attended consultations on his case, and yet, to his astonishment, appeared iu the lists against him. Mr* Justice B irrouyh Such imputations are ex- tremely improper. Mr. ( rnrneg.— Mr Lord, they are not true; I never was retained by the Noble Lord in the case to which he alludes; I was, indeed, consulted on the part of the Noble Lord, respecting a prosecution for a libel, and I wrote my opinion 011 that subject. Three weeks after I was offered a retaining fee iu the prosecution against the Nobie Lord, but I refused to accept it, having been already engaged agaiust hiin, and it was not for six months afterwards that I heard a doubt suggested of the propriety of my conduct. Mr. Justice Burrough No one believes, Mr. Our- ney, that you couid have done any thing inconsistent with your character as a barrister and a gentleman. Lord Cochrane.— I can only say such eharges were made in my Attorney's bill to me. Mr. Murn/ att.— I hope the Noble Lord will call some evidence after the extraordinary speech he has thought proper to make. Mr. Justice hurrough— No; I am sure no evidence will be called.— The Noble and Learned Judge then proceeded to address the Jury. He said he was most anxious that the Noble Defendant should have had an opportunity of stating every thing which he pleased ; and he was the more desirous to take this course, from the daily misrepresentations which took place of the proceedings ofthe Courts of Justice, and from which, in the present case, it might have been inferred, had he not heard every word which the Noble Lord had to say, that justice had not been duly administered. Alter having patiently heard all the Noble Lord had to offer, however, he could not but remark, that, with all his attention, he had not been able to discover a single • sentence of the Noble Lord's speech which, directly or indirectly* applied to the issue which they were called upon to try. He entertained a hope that the defendant would not have taken the course which he did. Nothing could have been more unjust than to endeavour to asperse and viiify the charactcr of a pub- lic officer, whom the Noble Lord must have known could have no opportunity of vindicating himself.— The Noble Lord had detailed charge* agaiust the Marshal of the King's Bench, which, if founded, had nothing iu the world to do with the eon- duct imputed to his Lordship; but which, as they could not be answered, it was inconsistent with the principles of justice and of honour to have made. Afier what had passed, he trusted there was not au indivi- dual in Court who w ould not at once dismiss from his breast any conclusion founded upon aspersions to which there was no opportuuity of replying. The only question for the Jury to decide on this occasion was, whether Lord Cochrane had been committed to the custody ofthe Marshal of the King's Bench for a given period ; and if he had been so committed, whe- ther he had not been found at large before the expira- tion of that period. That he. had beeu committed was proved by evidence of the most incontrovertible description; and that he had escaped was as clear as the sun at noon- day. The Jury, therefore, could only come to the conclusion that the charge imputed to him was well- founded. The Jury now proceeded to consider their verdict, and after a few minutes consultation, Mr. Haydon, the foreman, begged to ask, whether the Jury were at liberty to accompany their verdict by auy remark beyond the simple decision of guilty or not guilty? Mr. Justice Burrough.— You will find your verdict as to the simple fact whether Lord Cochrane was committed to the custody of the Marshal of the King's Bench, and whether, after being so committed, he did not escape before the expiration ofhisstipalated con- finement. Mr. W. Vincent ( another Juryman).— Are we per- mitted, in returning our verdict, to accompany it by an expression of our opinion ? Are we allowed to recommend the defendant to mercy ? Mr. Justice Burrough.— Certainly, you are at li- berty, if you think fit, to recommend the defendant to mercy. The Jury now consulted again for a short time, when their foreman returned the following verdict:—" We are of opinion that Lord Cochrane is guilty of escap- ing from prison, but We recommend him to mercy, because we think his subsequent punishment fully adequate to the offence of which he was guilty." Mr. Justice Burrough.— I will state your verdict, Gentltunen, precisely in the terms in which you have given it. His Ix> rship then wrote down the verdict, as reported by the foreman. Lord Cochrane.— My Lord, I want justice, and not mercy. On the Verdict being finally recorded, there was a marked sense of approbation, and for a moment the decorum of the Court was interrupted by clapping and other demonstrations of satisfaction. Mr. Justice Burrough said, if such indecorous eon- duct was repeated, he should commit the offenders to custody. There was 110 ground for rejoicing, because the Jury, after finding the defendant guilty, had thought proper to recommend him to mercy. Monday se'nnight, Serjeant John Nugent, of the 10th regiment, blew off part of his skull, at Lime- rick, by discharging a loaded musket, which he placed under his right ear. The unfortunate man, some hours before he committed the rash act, con- demned, in strong language, the conduct of a bro- ther soldier, who a few days before committed a similardeed.— An inquest having been summoned before the Mayor, and some witnesses being exa- mined, a verdict that he did the act in a st"' . despondency wa1'" ' — » . MURCfeROyS RETALIATION. Western Barbary is inhabited by three Iraces of men Arabs, Berebbers, and Moors; bat the Sbilluh, or Berebbers of the south, differ iu ap|> ettrance from the other tribes, and are distinguished for warmth of at- tachment, and vehemence of passion, as the following anecdote will shew, taken from Robert Adams' Nar rativeof his Shipwreck and Slavery :—" A Shillub," says Adams, " having murdered out of his country- men in aquarrel. fled to the Arabs from the vengeance of the relations of his antagonist; but not thinking himself secure even there, he joined a party of pil- grims, and went to Mecca. From this expiatory Journey lie returned at the end of eight or nine years toBarbarv; and proceeding to his native district he there soujht ( under the sanctified name of El Hajc, the Pilgrim, a title of reverence among the Mahom- medans) to effect a reconciliation with the friends of the deceased. They, however, upon hearing of his return, attempted to seize him; but, owing to the fleetness » fhis horse, he escaped and fled to Mogadore, having been severely wounded by a musket ball in his flight. His pursuers followed him thither; bur the Governor of Mogadore, hearing the circumstances of the case, strongly interested himself in behalf of the fugitive, and endeavoured, but iu vain, to effect a re- conciliation. The man was imprisoned; and his prosecutors then hastened to Morocio to seek justice ofthe Emperor. The Prince, it is said, endeavoured to save the prisoner; and to add weight to his re- commendation, offered a pecuniary compensation iu lieu ofthe offender's life; " hicli the parties, although persons of mean condition, rejected. The\ returned triumphant to Mogadore, with the Emperor's order for the delivery of the prisoner into their hands; and having taken him out of prison, they immediately convesed him without the walls of the town, where one of the party, loading his musket before the faie of their victim, plaied the muzzle to his breast, and shot him through the body; but as the man did not immediately fali, he drew his dagger, and by lepeated stabbing put an end to his existence. The ca. in in- trepidity with which this unfortunate Shihub stood to meet his fate, could not be witnessed without the highest admiration; and, however much we detesi the biood- thirstiuess of his executioners, we must still' acknowledge that there is something closeiy allied to nobleness of sentiment in the inflexible perseverance with which they pursued the murderer of their friend to punishment, without being diverted from their purpose by the strong inducements of self- interest."

On his refusal they complained of fatigue, aud requested they might lodge in his barn lor the night; this he agreed to, but having suspicion that they in- tended committing some depredation after the family had retired to rest, he determined to listen to their conversation; when, to his astonish- ment, he heard them say they had been totally without nourishment for several days. He imme- diately repaired to the farm, ordered them some bread, cheese, aud beer, and after having given them some clean straw, retired to rest.— In the morning he went to the barn, and found them ! quite dead. It is supposed they had eaten too voraciously of the provisions, which caused their dissolution. On Thursday se'nnight an inquisition was held at the Horse and Groom, in Ealing, before Thomas Stilling, Esq, Coroner for Middlesex, on the body of Mis. Ann Pinsent, who after eating ber dinner on Tuesday preceding, was sitting on one of the window- seats, in the room, singing a hymn on the day of judgment, when she fell from her seat on the floor, in the presence of her husband and some friends, and expired immediately, without speak- ing or uttering the smallest complaint. It ap- peared on examination, that the deceased was about thirty- five years of age, of a very delicate constitu- tion, and having taken cold in ber last lying- in, which was aboutthreemonths before, shecontracted a complaint that afterwards afflicted her till the time of her death. The body was opened by a surgeon, and examined ; who gave it as his opinion, that her death was occasioned by a dropsical complaint in her chest. Verdict— Died by the visitation of God. Same day, an inquest was held at the Turf Tap, Grosvenor- Place, before H. Lewis, Esq. on the body of Mary M'Claning, who met her death iu consequence of being accidentally burned. Mar- garet the wife of John Malin, stated that she lived ] with the deceased, at 10, Jews- Row, Chelsea. The latter on Monday night, about nine o'clock, re- quested to have a lighted candle. In a few minutes afterwards she screamed out Fire! which alarmed witness, who instantly came to her assistance, and found her standing in the middle >. f the floor, with all her clothes in flames. Not being able to extin- guish them, the deceased ran to the Duke of York public- house adjoining, where the fire was extin- guished, but she was so shockingly burned, that it was found necessary to send her to St. George's Hospital, whereshe languished until the next morn- ing, when she expired.— Mr. William Pitman, house surgeon to the hospital, said the deceased met her death in consequence of a dreadful burn on her chest and shoulders ; she appeared to be in a state of intoxication when she was brouehtj^ flif* hospital; and being at the time^^^^. Tter apart- ment, there tfie accidcnt happened. was aboutfortyyears of age, aud much addicted to drinking. Verdict— Accidental Death. It is well known that the silk trade of England has its chief seat in Spitalfields, and Usually finds employment and support lor the majority of the : poor of that vicinity. The nunibvr '. if looms in this trade has been ascertained to bte about 10,000; aud each of these, when in work, will furnish employment for three persous in the various branches of dying, warping, winding, quilling, Sec. Of these 10,000 looms, however, more than half have been totally unemployed for several months, aud the numerous families dependent upon them deprived of all their supplies. Mauy have literally parted with every thirig that could produce a shil- ling; their rooms are stripped of their little fur- niutie and bedding, and their bodies left almost without any kind of covering, It is lamentable to state, that the smalUailoWapce which the parish can afford is, uow, all that numbers of them have to subsist upon, and this is rarely half sufficient to buy them bread.

One ot the Wris papei * records the death of the dug of the Ministry ol W ttr; stating that, in 1808, the dog on the first nigl it of his reception there, saved the chestof the Minis '. try, which wasalteinpted to be stolen by thieves ; as a reconipence for which service, the then Minister granted to the dog a pension of 150 francs ( 61. os.) per annum. His successor, the Count de C '. essac, who introduced economy into all the bra nthes of the service, amongst other things plact id the dog upon hulf- pay ! A Ventriloquist has bee n banished from the states of Parma for some unl ttcky specimens of his art. Following a funeial p: ocession to Plaisance, he heard the bearer of the C'r oss ask on which side he should turn, the processioi 1 having arrived at a cross- way. The Ventriloquis it, imitating the voice ofthe deceased, said, " Wheia 1 was alive, I went on this side, where we are." These words spread terror amongst the people pr< sent; every one fled, and the deaitwas left alone. bi another instance, under the portico, where win » t is sold, there is a piurl^ lunul pilstm iksitrreiJ It. T ItlubC wtiu disturb the market. The Ventriloqui: it sent forth cries as if those of a poor prisoner torn by a mad cat. All the inhabitants ofthe town, tog " ether with the Gen- darmerie, and the troops of Ihe Corps de Garde, in consequence assembled, when the trick was dis- covered, and the Ventriloquist was arrested. A ci- devant boottnal^ er, of Ns > wgate- street, who a few years back, had a very flour ishing business, but had long considered that ratior tal liberty could not be enjoyed in England, dispos td of his property, ! and set off with his wife and fat ttily for America.— j With'n these few days the Chun : hwardens of Christ Church have been called upon for parish relief in bi half of himself, his wife, and children, they having landed at Falmouth ais distressed British subjects, without a penny to ht ; lp themselves. In the night of Monday wei - k, the Flora, ofLon- don, which had just taken in her cargo from Nes- | ham aud Co.' s stailhs, at Su; jderland, blew up with I a terrible explosion. The de< : k- beams were broken, 1 and the decks completely tor n up, with considerable other damage. This accit' ient is supposed to have been occasioned by a boy g sing between decks with I a lighted candle, by which some carbonated hydro- gen gas, arisingirom the inflammable state of the I coal, was ignited. Thursday se'nnight an inquest was held at the I Rose and Crown, King's Road, Chelsea, before Thomas Stirling, Esq. C< sroner for Middlesex, on the body of Mr. G B , a gentleman of great respectability, who put a period to his ex- istence by cutting his th roat. It appeared by the testimony of his friends v / ho were examined on the inquest, that between twi J and three years ago the deceased lost an amiable 1 rife, on whom he doated, aud that he had not been happy in his mind since her death, bpt , had becoi ne melancholy and low- spirited, and for hours log sutler would uot cpsak a word to any petson. The Juiy returned a verdict, that the deceased came ti 1 his death by his own act, but that he was iusai ne at the time he com- mitted it. Five criminals, under st mtence of death at Ber- wick, for coining, have ret'eivtd a respite during the Prince Regent's pleasu re. One of them, Mary Moen, has been delivered of a son since she re- ceived sentence. A TAR IN DISTRESS.-- At the Kilkenny As- sizes, Bartly Hartford wa: s capitally convicted of a highway robbery. On be'jng brought up to receive sentence, he said, in the l. rue language and style of a sailor, " ' Twas true he committed the robbery, but was driven to it by necessity, being absolutely starving, and uot having a penny to buy any thing; that he returned the gentleman three of tenpennys he took from him. ajjigi*^..' i- notes — that it was thefir^ g^ gSW'^ eever committed— | hadsejj^ g^ rfpceu y « urs in the navy, and with JNelson at the celebrated battle ot Trafalgar." This candid statement excited a considerable de- gree of commiseration in the hearers, and the Grand Jury applied to have his sentence of death commuted to transportation. FATAL EFFECTS OF PASSION.— A poor man, of itfie name of Chew, at Bath, on Tuesday threw 4 knife at his son, a boy about ten ^ ears old, which Unfortunately entered its back, and inflicted a wound likely to prove mortal. The wretched father has surrendered himself to justice. EXTIIAORDINARY WEDDING.— Last week, a young woman, about twenty- three years of age, proceeded with a man aged sixty- seven, to St. Martin's Church, to be joined in the soft bands of matrimony. On their arrival at the altar, where their mutual vows were to be consecrated by th* sacred obligations of religious ceremony, and every thing being prepared, the young lady, to the utter astonishment of the priest, and all around her, ran out of the church. The bridegroom's friend pur- sued her up St. Martin's- Une, and brought her back to the church, where, after considerable per- suasion, she was prevailed on to proceed iu the ceremony. On coming, however, to that part, where she ought to say she would " love, honour, and obey," the word " obey," as Macbeth de- scribes it, " stuck in her throat," and she resisted every thing said to her to induce her to speak it. At length the clergyman found it necessary to interfere, and after making considerable comment ou her conduct, she very reluctantly said she would obey; and the remainder ofthe ceremony was per- formed. By the time the loving pair got out of the church, the singularity of the circumstance had attracted a great 1110b; a coach was, however, provided, but the mob was so great, that it was with difficulty they could get into it, and even after they were in, such was the curiosity to see tbtm, that the coach was nearly upset.. COMFORTS OF MATRIMONY.— At Hatton- Gar- deti Office, on Monday, Mary Sturidge was charged with threatening and attempting to murder her husband, who stated that she frequently acted ia the most violent aud unmanageable manner, accom- panying her actions with the most horrid expres- sions, saying it would afford her great pleasure to plunge a knife or dagger in his heart, and for which she should die at peace at the Old Bailey, and other similar threats, too shocking to relate. Her viclctice to his properly had been equal to ber attacks upon his person. She had consumed about 4001. in four months; she had sold a horse for halt its value; every hinge in the house she had broken, and had nearly broke all the windows, both front and back, which frequently collected crowds. Nearly hll his clothes were either destroyed 01 made away with, so that he was obliged to borrow clothes that day to apptar with decency at the office to exhibit Lis charge. He had frequently offered her a separate maintenance, and had employed an attorney tor that purpose, but she had declined to accept it. lie could uot account for the violence of her conduct, as she had always enjoyed every comfort, aud he had exerted himself to make her happy in every re- spect.— George Ruthen, the constable who appre- hended the prisoner, stated, that she repeated the threats in his bearing of stabbing her husband in the heart.— Jealousy was the only reasoh assigned for her violent conduct, which Mr. Sturidge assured the Magistrate was without the least foundation.— He said, that in conseq leuce ol her conduct, he hail nothing but ruin and a prison before him— Mr. Stu- ridge took a very fine infant from her while she made her defence.— Sir Nathaniel Conant ordered her to find bail. When she was takeu away to custody, she endeavoured to wrest the infant trwa her husband's arms, and he resisted ber eff. r'. s, endeavouring to keep the child, but the Magistrals ibought the mother on^ ht to keep the child. The wife of a man named Hooker, a shoemaker, residing at Gravesend, was safely delivered of four' fine male children, a few days ago, who are all living, and, with the mother, likely to do wi ll. Sunday morning, about eight 0' clock, the body of a farmer, named Stillwelf, was found m Jrdet ed at his own house, at a village called Farnham Holr, near Farnham, Surrey. The deceased was known to have possessed some money, and having lived itl an almost retired state, it is supposed that he was attacked by some villaias whose object was plun- der. EXECUTION.— On Tuesday se'nnight, pursuant to their sentences at Salisbury Assizes, . Samuel Newman, convicted of forgery, and Samuel Flower, of a highway robbery, were executed at the drop in Fisheitou Gaol, near that city. There arc perhaps, few examples of such fortitude and re- signation as the former of these unfortunate men displayed from the time of his conviction up U the moment of his suffering the awful sentence < f the law. To excellent natural abilities, were adikd all the advantages derived from a good education and extensrve reading. His career in early life was marked by heavy misfortunes, whim, in all probability, led to the unhappy conseqnences we uow record. He invariably asserted, that he was entirely innocent of the offence for which he suf- fered ; and on the morning of execution he made 1 similar declaration at the comuiunion- talle, iu the most solemn and impressive manner. By tiie kindness and humanity of the Sheriff, the execaion was delayed two hours and a half, in consequence of a taint hope, that the application making by some benevolent persons of Exeter, to the Secretary of State, might be attended with success, but which proved unavailing. At the total monvent his de- portment was most becoming and exemplary ; by no external sign did he betray the most distant symptoms of fear; his countenance exhibited the calmness and tranquillity of a man performing th « ordinary offices ot life. With the greatest finnne5* he untiul his neckcloth, and adjusted the cord; when, asking the wretched companion of his fate if he was prepared, and being answered in the affirmative, he gave the fatal signal, and appeared to die without a pang. The following is an extract of a letter received from Mr. Newman 011 the morning of bis execution :— " Sir— For your kindness, attention, and hu- manity, iu my awful situation, I btg to the unsophisticated gratitude _ ji ~ 7nn heart. Cast iu the mouldj^ F- fraTbenevolence, but se> l duced l^--**- necessities of embarrassment and '•• oiortune, it has still never ceased to reco? nisfl the principles of morality, or answer the claims of humanity and distress. I repeat to you, Sir, with all the solemnity which is given aud recognized by all mankind, the declaration, in the presence of Almighty God! that I am entirely innocent of th* crime for which the law has doomed me to suffer ; and under this conviction it is that 1 go to death with fortitude and resignation."
