SPANISH AMERICA. The arrival of a vessel from Buenos Ayres enables us to lay before our readers the following intertst- ing particulars, extracted from a letter of the 27th August, written by an intelligent and impartial merchant. " The political Revolution of tliese Provinces gra- dually assumes a more decided and stable form, which, at least, as far as human foresight can reach, leaves no doubts whatever with regard to the happy issue. The want of central organization does indeed render every step less effective, and even sometimes unfortu- nate; but notwithstanding the eriors committed by the chiefs, and the intestine divfc'jJSs' wllicli exist among many families, iii general the good sense of the people prevails over circumstances, without diminish- ing the primitive ardour to shake off an oppressive yoke. It may be asserted, that the dread of slavery, which among free nations has always produced more virtues than even principles derived from good insti- tutions, as well as the stimulus of public opinion, which among men frequently supplies the place of virtue, will constantly impel the people of Buenos Ayres, not only to oppose a most vigorous resistance to all foreign invasion, but also by their exertions to promote the cause of liberty iu the other sections of this part of the American Continent. Hence, notwith- standing here they have had so much to attend to, the projects for liberating Chili have not been slackened. " The Congress assembled iu Tucuman is animated by the best views, and means are not wanting to realize them, particularly as far as regards interior order, the main point for the present. The new Go- vernment constituted in the person of the Don Martin Puyerredon, as Supreme Director, promises to be both active and liberal, aud above all, as he is now in- vested with the character of constitutionality, it will not be liabieto those fluctuations which have hitherto injured and debilitated the cause. These prospects also, it is to be hoped, will give the affairs of the River Plate a more favourable aspect in Europe. " General Artigas is ready to repel the Portuguese with his hardy and numerous bands, and it is believed that the invasion of the Brazil army ( if it should take place) would be attended with no other consequences than to produce to the inhabitants of each side of the river, political aud civil union, which had been dis- turbed by no other cause than au unfortunate series and accumulation of personal animosities, which al- ways subside at the sight of common danger. Through the freedom of the press, the people now understand their own interests, and w ill not be deceived. They have also been able to judge the conduct of their past leaders. " The Portuguese shew themselves, at one time in a threatening, and, at others, in an inviting attitude; and although they have succeeded in addleing the brains of some place- hunters, who expect to outshine their fellow- citizens with the Caracha of the Order of Christ on their breasts, the people of these provinces are fully sensible that if ever they form part of the Brazil Kingdom, whether through accession or conquest, they can never be any thing else than the slaves of the emblazoned slaves of the new King crowned in Ame- rica, and in search of aggrandizement. They have known too long what it is to be governed by a Vice- roy, unchecked by any laws, and, besides, they have no security for the future. They are also aware that they would be overrun with hungry courtiers, who have followed the King from Lisbon; that such would be their rulers and demi- gods; aud you know what the force of antipathy is. " The spirit of ferment iu Chili daily gains ground, and, according to some accounts, has already assumed . an hostile form. Indeed the for bearance of the people of that country has received its last test, for the con- duct of the Spanish rulers, since the unfortunate ar- rangement with Lima, has uniformly been calculated to rouze the indignation ® f that thoughtful and in- trepid people. By this means the temporary tenure of the agents of Ferdinand eventually serves to consoli date the patriotic cause, as the people are enabled to form a contrast, whieh will guard them against fu tore delusion. They have had full opportunities of knowing what capitulations with Spanish chiefs are, and they will take good care not to trust them again " In consequence of this tone of feeling prevalent in Chili, General San Martin, who comm ids the Buenos army near the Andes, has lost no time in form- ing the most important combinations with the Chi- lenian patriots, in order to complete a grand plan of operations, and, according to the state of things, we are animated by a firm hope that in spring ( which, in an inverse ratio with you, begins here in October), or at least during the course of summer, Chili will be perfectly free. " Pezuela's last victory has been attended with no other consequences than to undeceive him, and prove the fruitlessness of Ins attempt lo crush or stifle the spirit of liberty. The ground is disputed with liitn when he attacks, iiich by inch, and he can rely on nothing that is without the reach of his own fire. He commands only t| ie places occupied by his army. At the present moment he is surrounded by the revolu- tionary flame in all directions. Below, that is, between Potosi and Jujui, the Buenos Ayres army is stationed, 5000men, Occupying the main avenue to Peru. Above, General Arenales has not only maintained possession of the provinces of Cochabamba and Santa Cruz, but also incessantly harasses the enemy on the side of Chaquisaca and the province of Cinti, by cutting off his supplies. By this means Pezuela's soldiers for some days have been compelled to eat their beasts of burden, the most evident sign of pressure that cau be given iu this country. True it is, that the country suffers in a most incalculable manner by this species of warfare, but, as the South Americans say, since Europe has taught them that it was preferable to burn Moscow ralher than lose an Empire, they also will burn and lay waste their fields, iu order to secure their inde- pendence and the blessings of freedom for themselves and their children." FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. HANOVERIAN CONSTITUTION. The Neurvied Journal of the 28th October con- tains the following letter from Hanover, of the 17th. " In the public papers it has been repeatedly re- ported that the British Constitution, with a few mo- difications, was to be introduced into the. kingdom of Hanover; but whoever is in any manner acquainted with the state of things here, must know that there is no foundation whatever for believing any such event will take place. The Hanoverian Nobility, who, it is well known, are without their equal in Germany for pride of ancestry, for distinctions of birth aud privileges, will hardly be disposed to make a sacrifice of what they have been so lucky as to re- cover after rather a long privation, to certain ideas which are at present in circulation in other countries iu Germany, especially among the cultivated middle classes. Neither is there any greater probability in the supposition that our Nobility will voluntarily acquiesce in that mixture with the other classes of citizens, by which the British Nobility are connected in so many various ways with the people, and consent to this being made a fundamental la w of the Consti- tution. In the higher regions of society with us, it is said, we were so well under the old Hanoverian Con- stitution, it would be madness to exchange it for another, the advantages of which, with respect to us at least, are problematical. Perhaps, in other States, the erroneous idea is entertained that the presence of an English Prince, to whom the Government of Ha- nover is confided, will gradually bring about many modifications iu the ideas which prevail here respect- ing political institutions; but this is, like too many other things, observed from a distance. The Duke of Cambridge is precisely the main support oftlie Hanoverian Nobility, aud Count Munster seems to occupy himself more with the external relations of the German territories of his Britannic Majesty, ' than with their home concerns; and as the Ministerial Government is the sole organ through which any thing reaches England, it is easy to conceive what we may look for from that quarter. Still less can we expect any important changes from the Hanoverian Diet, as it is at present composed. The opposition of the States here to the Government, is of a quite op- posite character to that Which has taken place in the case of the States of Hesse, restored at the same time. Iu this latter country the Deputies have proposed several changes in the old form of the State, which they conceived suitable to the times, while the Go- vernment have pertinaciously resisted all innovation; but in Hanover, although our Government is anxious to preserve the old state of things, it does not seem disinclined to many innovations which the present times call for ; but the Hanoverian States shew tliem- selves uniformly great enemies to all such innovations, and in this respect endeavour to counteract all the designs of the Government. It is impossible, there- fore, that the results of the Hanoverian and Hessian Diets should not be quite different; and iu Hanover we can only expect any change in a complete new modelling of the representation. The cause of this phenomenon is chiefly attributable to the circum- stance, that the Assembly of the States is almost en- tirely composed of individuals of the Nobility, and their dependents, or of office- bearers looking to them for protection, and that a free choice of representatives by the people, iu the present circumstances, cannot possibly take place.— This short picture of our situa- tion may enable the people of other countries to an- ticipate the results of the deliberations of the States recently assembled in Hanover." HANOVER, November 1. GEORGE, PRINCE REGENT, & C.— On account of the particular attachment which our dearly be- loved brother the Duke of Cambridge feels for the Royal Hanoverian States, we have benn pleased to appoint him Governor- General of the Kingdom of Hanover, and to give him the Presidency in the Hanoverian Ministry and the Primary Council. We are convinced that all our faithful servants and sub- jects will gratefully acknowledge this fresh proof of our paternal regard and care, and will exert themselves, each in his appointed place, to sup- port, to the utmost of his power, our incessant exertions for the general welfare of the kingdom, with true public spirit, and firm confidence in the measures and regulations adopted by us for its good. Hanover, 24th Oct. 1816. ST. PETERSBURG, Oct. 19.— The Northern Post has the following article from Constantinople: —" News has been received here from Smyrna, that the well- known Russian traveller, M. Richter, has died in that city, to the general regret. He lately returned from Egypt, Syria, and other southern countries. This young man possessed extensive knowledge, and the most distinguished talents. He leaves behind him several valuable antiquities and MSS. His death was caused by a putrid fever, which he caught in visiting the neigh- bourhood of ancient Ephesus." Accounts from Civita Vecchia, dated Oct. 28, state, that the merchant vessel the Alphonso, hav- ing on board two Missionaries, coming from Canton, has brought sortie details of a revolution which has taken place at Pekin, and which has put an end to the glorious reign of KiaChing, Emperor of China:— " On the 3d of September, KiaChing wasdethioned by the revolt of the guards of the Palace, having at their head two great officers of the army. A woman called Son- kau- Tan, has, it is said, been the soul of this revolution, which, if " we can believe the intelligence, will change the face of China."— The above intelligence was given to the Captain of the Alphonso by a Portuguese Captain who left Canton after the revolution. The people, stil.' more fanatic than Kia Ching, were excited to tie revolt in the name of the Gods of the Empire, whose faces the I'. tnperor had veiled. PARTS, Aoc. 0.— Comm. iions haff frffey ta^ en place iu several parts of France, in consequence of the scarcity of grain, aud the want of employment for the labouring classes. Three waggons, loaded with flour, happening to pass through Chatelierault, on their way to Paris, the people of the town as- sembled, stopped the waggons, aud insisted upon the flour being publicly distributed upon terms fat beneath its present price. The Authorities imme- diately came forth, and called upon the National Guard to assist in dispersing the mob, and in pro- tecting the property. The Guard denied its as- sistance. The Prefect endeavoured in the middle of the night to procure the removal of the waggons out of the town, but his endeavours were success- fully opposed by the Mayor and Sub- Prefect, who were greatly apprehensive of the effects of disap- pointment in the people. These two Magistrates accordingly satisfied the people, by distributing, the next morning, in the market- place, the whole of the flour at a maximum price fixed by themselves. This rising, which originated with the distress of the people, and which commenced by the stoppage of the waggons, lasted three successive days, and required the greatest exertions on the part of the Magistrates, and the assistance of the military force in the neighbouring places to put an end to. Jr onie individuals, considered as leaders in this conspiracy, for such is the light in which it is represented to Government, have been taken into custody, and sent to the town of Poitiers to take their trial. Similar disturbances have also occurred through the same cause iu the latter town, as well as at those of Thouars and Beaufort. The Prefect of of Poitiers, among other arguments to quiet the people, urged, that of bread having been sold at as high a price as at present under Bonaparte. " True," suid one of the boldest of the rioters, " he raised the price of bread, but he gave us work, aud thus money to purchase it." The Sub- Prelect of St. Malo ha? been arrested for causing arms to be delivered to the Vendeans in that quarter, and for ordering into custody the Gendarme, who informed him that distributions of that kind had taken pl^ ce. A thorough change among the Prefects, and particularly the Sub- Pre- fects, is in contemplation. It is intended to dismiss about forty of the former, and about twice that number of the latter. MADAME CATALANI.— MUNICH, NOV. 1.— It appears that we shall not have the pleasure of hear- ing Madame Catalani, notwithstanding she has been with us eight days. She proceeded on the day of benediction to the Palace of the Empress aud the Chapel Royal ( which is very small) and made her way, regardless of ceremony, with M. Brizzi, who conducted her to the tribune appro- priated to the young- Princesses of Bavaria. When the Princesses arrived, she was removed by one of the Masters of the Ceremonies, aud obliged to with- draw to the superior gallery. The next day, being near the Queen for the purpose of singing in a select concert, she complained of her removal, say- ing, she had been accustomed to be seated with Princesses ; that the Prince Regent of England and the King of Prussia had occasionally placed her in the front seats. The Queen, who has angel- like goodness, endeavoured to quiet her, observing, with a smile, that had they provided at St. James's, or Berlin, an extensive ceremony in so confined a place, she would not perhaps have found a seat so commodious. The mildness of the Queen made the songstress more clamorous, and she declartd at last with tears that she would not sing. The King, who happened to come in, sent for her, and forbade her singing at Munich. Since that affair, Catalani has several times endeavoured to obtain permission to sing at Court, but she has been refused. Nov. 5.— Madame Catalani set out the day be fore yesterday for Florence, whither she is going, as it is said, to her family. Her attempts to obtain permission to sing at Court, proved unsuccessful; and as, after what had passed here, she could not expect a better reception at Vienna, she determined to proceed direct to Italy, where she will pass a great part of the winter. BRUSSELS, NOV. 13.— Several British soldiers have been guilty of excesses; and, among others, have attacked and robbed an inhabitant of Bapaume. The Prefect of the North has demanded satisfaction, which demand has been attended to, as the guilty have been arrested without delay, and will be rigo rously punished. The strictest orders have been again given for the maintenance of exact disci- pline ; and, at the same time, the French Authori- ties have been exhorted to pay strict attention to such of the inhabitants as, from evil designs, or other reasons, seek to excite quarrels with the foreign soldiers. In the instructions given to the French Prefects respecting the continuation of the recruiting for the cavalry and artillery of the Royal Guard, they are strictly enjoined not to enlist any but such as have at all times shewn themselves well affected to the Royal cause. We see but few British officers here at present; on the other hand, the Russian officers are more numerous than ever. All of thein wait on her Imperial Highness the Princess of Orange, who receives theui in the most ali'able maimer.— Haarlem Courant, Nov, 16. LONDON. The late King of Wirtemberg's will has been opened; the principal dispositions of it are as follow:— The present King1 is appointed universal legatee to the private property of his father, upon condition of paying 200,0( 10 florins to the children of Prince Paul; 80,000 florins to the children of Prince William, brother of the late King; 120,000 florins to the children of Prince Louis; 60,000 florins, and an annual pension of 3,000 florins, to Count de Dillen, who has besides liberty to choose eight horses out of the King's stables; 20,000 florins, and four horses to be chosen in like man- ner, to General de Brenning; 10,000 florins to the Minister Secretary of State, De Vellnagel; 10,000 florins and two horses to Count de Southern.— There is a great number of secondary legacies.— Her Majesty the Queen Dowager has applied to the new King for the Count de Dillen, as Grand Master of her Household, and the King has com- plied with her desire. Though the English Papers assert that this Princess will return to England next spring, it does not appear that her health will so soon permit her to undertake the journey. Daring the last fair at Leipsic, a writing was handed about for the subscription of the German manufacturers, with a view to the forming a Com- mittee out. of their number, who might draw up a memorial to the German Diet at Frankfort, for the purpose of effecting an absolute prohibition of all English manufactures. A pamphlet of five or six pages is thrust into every hand or under every door at Paris, recom- mending the King to assume the Dictatorship, as the only made of saving the State; and openly declaring, that the duty of every Frenchman is to rouse himself and drive the Stranger from the land. American Papers arrived on Saturday, from one of which we have made the following extract:— " The Americans are busily employed in ren- dering Niagara one of the strongest fortresses in the United States. On the land side they are extending the works by strong redoubts; and on the river they are constructing shelving batteries almost even with the water, which they properly call marine fortifications. Whether these works of defence Or offence have given rise to suspicion in Fort George, | we cannot pretend to determine; but we are credi- bly informed, that the British Commandant has lately become very particular about the spot where every, boat is to land, and has prohibited British citizens from amusing themselves at shooting or fishing on certain parts of the common beach, which has always, in time of peace, been as free to them as the arr they breathed. Inconsequence of this order of the Commandant, Thomas Ragey, Esq. and a son of the Hon. William Dickson, have been put into confinement for amusing themselves on the sacred ground of the public in time of profound peace ! We soon expect further particulars re- specting this disagreeable occurrence." The Quebec Gazette of the 10th ult. states, that the harvest in the Upper Provinces had been got in, the quality of the wheat good, the crop abundant. The parishes below Quebec had suffered from the weather, the crops deficient in quality, having been taken in while green. The weather had set in very cold, with snow. We have to announce the decease of another relative of the Royal Family, the Duke of Meck- lenburg, the brother of her Majesty. His Serene Highness was in his 75th year, being born in 1741. He reigned over his subjects with great mildness, and both by his private and public character, well deserved to be the object both of their love and their respect. On Monday the Russian Grand Duke Nicholas and suite arrived at Deal in the Royal Sovereign yacht, from Calais. His Highness was greeted by a salute from his Majesty's ships in the Downs, and Admiral Sir George Cockburn was waiting at the Three King's Inn, to accompany his Highness to London. On Saturday notice was received in the city, that Government would issue no more Exchequer Bills after the 21st inst. bearing an interest of 3^ d. per day ; in future the interest will only be 3d. The Gazette of Saturday contains the average of the prices of grain in the maritime districts, and by which importation is regulated. Wheat having exceeded 80s. per quarter, barley 40s. and oats 27s. 6d. the importation of foreign growth is now permitted. Bills of entry have been prepared at the Custom- House for a considerable quantity of wheat. The speculation of the merchants has occasioned the arrival of a number of ships laden with foreign grain— some are now in the River, and others have put into ports in the North of England. One com- mercial house in the city has advices of about fifty vessels, laden with grain, consigned to them, coming from the Baltic and from the Mediter- ranean. Several respectable corn- factors were of opinion that, on account of some obscurity in the wording of the Corn Bill, Bye would not be allowed to be imported; the impression in the Corn- market was general. The aggregate averages for the weeks were— Wheat92s. 9d. Barley44s. 5d. Oats 27s 6d. Rye53s. 7d. All these descriptions of grain are therefore freely admitted, without payment of any duty whatever, for the next three months, from foreign countries ; and the import of every description of grain is allowed from the British colonies in North America for the same period, until the next averages are made up ( 15th February next). There is, how- ever, a very important clause in the Act, deeply interesting to those connected with shipments of grain from the immediate coasts of Holland and France ; imports from thence may only be allowed for six weeks. The following are the particulars :— But if it shall, at any time after importation is permitted, appear that the average prices in the first six weeks suc- ceeding. the periods 15th February, ):> th May, 15th August, and l.' iih November, shall have fallen below the import rates, the import from all places between the river Eyder, in Holstein, and the river Bidassoa, in Spain, both inclu- sive, shall cease until a new average shall be made up and published in The London Gazette for regulating the sue- ceeding quarter. A Notice has been issued from the Lord Cham- berlain's Office, that his Royal Highness the Prince Regent has been pleased to command, ( ha) all Court Mourning ( except those of very short periods) shall iu future be abridged half the duration as at pre- sent established ; and further, that all Court Mourn- ings of a long duration shall, after the first six weeks, be worn only at Court and on Sundays. The counties of Somerset and Gloucester have formed an Association to petition Parliament for a duty of 30 per cent, on the importation of all agri- cultural produce capable of being grown in Eng- land, and a drawback of 10 per cent, on the ex- portation of all such produce as might be too abundantly produced. An official journal, published in the Russian lan- guage at Petersburgh, lately contained an article expatiating in the warmest terms on the benefits that resulted to States from the liberty of the press. " The Liberty of the Press," ( says the writer) " is acknowledged by all enlightened Governments as the most powerful spring for creating a public and national spirit. To it England is indebted for that noble energy and enthusiasm for the public good which have doubled her force and her power in the critical circumstances in which Europe has been placed." These are sentiments which Russia was unaccustomed to before the reign of Alexander. By a recent Order in Council, a new regulation is to take place in all seizures of contraband goods, See. by his Majesty's vessels and revenue cruizers. They now share in the same way as prizes taken in war from the enemy. The Commander in Chief, under whose command such men of war and reve- nue vessels are, takes an eighth. If a revenue cruizer takes any thing in sight of a vessel of war, then the Lieutenant commanding such revenue cruizer shares with the Lieutenants of the King's ship. The Act of 1704 is annulled, and the above regulations take place from the 1st of July, 1816. The boys half a share, and many other minor re- gulations are comprehended in the same order. A further reduction in the army is, it is said, to take place at the commencement of the ensuing year. It will consist, it is added, of the second majors belonging to regiments, and discharges of privates from the cavalry to the number of 300 in each regiment. By the death of Admiral Sir Roger Curtis, G. C. B. a reversion of 5001. per annum to the public takes place, which was granted to that re- spectable officer in February, 1783, for his services at the memorable siege of Gibraltar. The judicial investigation of the murder of the late Captain Partridge, oft' Dieppe, has not com- menced, although Mr. Featherstone, as a legal advocate, has been sent from England, we under- stand, on the part of the British Government, to examine into the affair, and to plead in behalf of the family of the unfortunate man. Among the events consequent upon the attack of Algiers, is the following singular occurrence:— An inhabitant of Brighton, who had been twenty- six years a prisoner, returned home; and it appeared, after he had been absent fifteen years, three fields in that town, of which he was the owner, had been sold, and part of the Pavilion, and some other prin- cipal houses in that place, are now built upon them. Of course the absentee has laid claim to the pro- perty, and no little confusion is likely to ensue. DUEL.— In consequence of its having transpired some weeks ago, that a challenge to fight a duel had passed between Messrs. Alley and Adolphus, these gentlemen were bound over to keep the peace. But though a hostile meeting was thus prevented in England, yet it appears that one of the dis- putants thought that some further proceedings were necessary. Accordingly, on Wednesday se'n- night, in the afternoon, Mr. Alley received a chal- lenge from Mr. Adolphus, requesting a meeting to settle their dispute, at Calais.— Mr. Alley set off for Dover early on the morning of Thursday, the 14th inst. and arrived there time enough to have reached Calais the same evening, had the wind been favourable; but from the adverse and bois- terous state of the weather, the combatants did not meet till two o'clock on Saturday afternoon. They then repaired with their seconds to a small distance from Calais, and there the seconds having arranged all points usual on such occasions, and having settled that they should both fire at the same time, on the dropping of a white handkerchief, the contending parties took their ground, and on thu signal being given they fired together. Mr. Adol- phus was the more fortunate marksman, as his ball hit Mr. Alley in the pistol- arm, where it lodged.— Mr. Alley was confined with his wound at the White Hart, at Calais. The ball had, however been ex- tracted, and he was not only considered out of danger, but to be doing extremely well.— Captain Alley was second to his cousin, Mr. Alley. The letter does not mention who officiated iu that capa- city to Mr. Adolphus. A Patent has passed the Great Seal for an in- vention to prevent the overturning of stage- coaches. A Clergyman of Yorkshire is said to be the Pa- tentee. A gentleman of Dublin, has brought to perfec- tion a lock and key, for which he has received a patent. Should any attempt be made to violate the lock, this ingenious invention defeats the object and detects the person, by giving an alarm, which is heard at a considerable distance. Tuesday morning, about three o'clock, the front of the skeleton of the house the nearest to Pall mall of the right projection in the new street, fell down with a dreadful crash, owing to the defective state of the foundation.

In the Court of King's Bench, on Monday, Thomas Nelson was brought up to receive judgment for assaulting and obstructing an Officer of Excise, named Goldham Browne, in the execution of his duty, on the 16th of February last. The case was tried before Chief Justice Gibbs, at the last Norfolk Assizes, when the defendant was found guilty The Court sentenced him to six months imprison ment in Norwich gaol.— Daniel Cladden was also brought up on a case of the same description. The defendant was found guilty at the last Bury Assizes, before the Chief Justice of the Common Pleas, of assaulting two Officers of the Excise in the execu- tion of their duty. After hearing the circumstances of the case, as reported by the Learned Judge, the Court sentenced the defendant to six months im- prisonment in Ipswich gaol. BROWN AND RANSOME V. STATON.— Mr. Ser- jeant Frere applied to the Court of King's Bench, iu the present Term, on behalf of the defendant, for a rule for the plaintiffs to show cause why the verdict given for them on the trial of this action, at the last Assizes at Bury St. Edmund's, should not be set aside, and a nonsuit entered. The action was brought to recover the amount of the sale of a thrashing machine intrusted to the de- fendant, who is an auctioneer, to sell for the plain- tiffs, and which he permitted the purchaser to take away without paying for. The Judge at the trial having reserved the point as to the liability of an auctioneer under such circumstances, the above application was made; but the Court refused to grant the rule, thereby establishing such liability. CAUTION TO AUCTIONEERS.— A short time since, an auctioneer was convicted at Loughborough, and paid a mitigated penalty, for having disposed of a quantity of shoes, not particularly expressed in the catalogue which he delivered to the Excise Officers, but sold under the head of miscellaneous lots. By the Act of 19th Geo. III. chap. 56, sect. 9, auctioneers are required to enumerate ever// article, lot, and parcel, intended to be sold at their re- spective sales. AGRICULTURE.— A writer in the Scots Maga- zine for June 1792, under the signature of Agricola, when speaking on this subject, adds the following important piece of information, viz.—" That grain cut down before it is quite ripe, will grow or spring- equally well as ripe and plump grain, provided it is properly preserved. I relate this from a fact, and also on the authority of one of the most judi- cious and experienced fanners in this island, William Craik, of Arbigland, Esq. near Dumfries, who was taught by such a season as this threatens to prove. This being the case, every wise econo- mical farmer will preserve his ripe and plump grain for bread, and sow the green and seemingly shrivelled grain, with a perfect conviction that the plants proceeding from such seed will yield as strong and thriving corn as what grows from plump seed. By this means the farmer will enjoy the double advantage of having corn most productive in flour for bread, and his light shrivelled grain will go much further in seed than the plump grain would do. 1 saw the experiment made on wheat, which was so shrivelled that it was thought scarcely worth giving, and yet produced heavy large ears." It appears from the French papers, that the free circulation of grain has been obstructed in some parts of France by the local authorities, probably on account of partial fears of dearth in their parti- cular districts. The Minister of the Interior has, in consequence, issued a circular to the Prefects, strictly prohibiting all such obstructions or restric- tions, as prevented the abundance of one district from supplying the deficiencies of another. The circular states, that every necessary measure had been taken to prevent the conveyance of grain out of the country, either by sea or land. A French paper states, that the use of vitiated rye has produced a singular disease, causing cruel ravages in the commune of Beaurepaire, depart- ment of the Isere. It acts with great rapidity even on the strongest men, producing gangrene in all the limbs, which it detaches from the joints in a manner so horrible, that unfortunate creatures have been seen to live for some weeks in the greatest agonies, with only the trunk remaining. In this disease emetics have been prescribed, followed by antispasmodics, and especially strong doses of opium, the sedative virtues of which have been very useful. The parts threatened are sometimes recovered by the application of cloths dipped in a decoction of Jesuit's bark. Administered inter- nally, this latter remedy produced no sensible effect. A late Military Order for the recal of all the absent English officers to join their respective corps in France, and the removal of the head- quarters to St. Omer's, are objects which do not fail to excite strange conjectures at Paris. Thursday morning Lord Cochrane was brought up to the Court of King's Bench, to receive the judgment of the Court, for breaking prison, when he was sentenced to pay a fine of 1001. and then to be discharged. Lord Cochrane refused to pay the fine of 1001. inflicted by the Court of King's Bench, and was on Thursday, upon leaving Westminster- Hall, con- ducted to the King's Bench prison. THE KING n. TOWLE.— The case of this pri- soner, now under sentence of death in Leicester gaol, for rioting, frame- breaking, aud robbery, came on for argument in the Exchequer Chamber on Wednesday se'nnight, when the twelve Judges were unanimously of opinion, that the conviction of the prisoner is legal; his execution, in conse- quence, will not be long delayed. SNOW IN HARVEST.— Extract from a letter, dated Leeds, 12th instant:—" We have a novel appearance in this part of the country— sheaves of corn standing covered with snow, and have been so ever since last Thursday." BANK NOTES.— A question was lately asked, whether a Bank Note, which proved to be a forgery, could be recovered in value from any person who might have written his name on it. It was thus answered by a Barrister: A Bank Note is not an indorsable instrument, and the innocent holder must, in every case of fair dealing, be the loser, unless he is assured of the person from whom he received it, who, on its being returned to him, is answerable for the nominal value. A meeting of distressed manufacturers, artificers, & c. was held in the Market- place of Birmingham, on Friday last, when a petition was voted to the Prince Regent, praying the abolition of sinecure places, and for a reform in the representation. The proceedings were conducted with creditable order and decorum, and the speakers on the occasion most respectable persons. Six pieces of cannon and a company of Artillery returned to Woolwich, on Saturday morning early, after having been stationed in the gardens of Carl- ton- House during Friday last. The Harriet, Captain Jones, sailed on Monday from Gravesend for Port Jackson, New South Wales, with a cargo. There are on board four young Missionaries and their wives, who, previous to their departure, preached at the Dissenting Meeting at Northfleet. She has also thirty- seven other passengers going out there to reside, among whom is an elderly lady, sixty- nine years of age, mother to the owner of the ship ( Joseph Under- wood, Esq.) It is the intention of Government to grant no more free passages to that colony,, some lately having been refused. A remarkable instance of the ferocity of a cat happened to the pound- keeper of the lock near Windsor Bridge, on Tuesday last. The man had occasion to go into an out- house, whither his dog followed, where a male cat was shut in. The cat, on the appearance of the dog, became furious, and fastened on the calf of the man's leg, from which he could not be loosened until he was killed. DUBLIN, Nov. 14.— On Tuesday evening, about four o'clock, a man fell down suddenly before the dour of Messrs. Dixon and Beasley, in Westmor- land- street. On taking him up, a large quantity of blood was discovered in his mouth. A medical gentleman ( Surgeon Hughes) came up at the time, who, after some exertion, succeeded in restoring the poor man to speech.— The unfortunate sufferer said that he had not tasted food for two days; could get no employment; nor be admitted into Channel- row ; and that he had two sisters starving at No. 27, Bull- alley. STEEPLE CHASE.— Major Welder, of Heston, undertook, on Monday, to ride from that place to West Wycomb, a distance of twenty miles, in one hour and ten minutes, for a bet of 200 guineas, on his Pipylina mare. He started at eight o'clock in the morning, and after clearing the Hounslow Heaths, he broke across the country to Tatling and Bulstrode, where the mare fell in clearing a fence, and but four miles from home. The Major, however, remounted, and completed his task in one minute and eleven seconds within the given time. At the Admiralty Sessions, on Monday, Robert Smith and Charles Furney, were tried for the mur- der of their Captain, Thomas Johnson, of the ship Creole.— James Bilmano, mate, stated that on Sunday morning, the 21st of July, 1815, the Cap- tain was murdered by Robert Smith and Charles Furney, Robert Smith striking him with a hand- spike, and Charles Furney cutting his throat with a knife; and Smith and he throwing him overboard. He was borne out in his evidence by William Mason, one of the crew, and Daniel Reading, the cabin boy.— Both prisoners acknowledged their guilt, and sentence of death was pronounced against them accordingly. On Tuesday, James Norbock, John Peri, John Semmett, and James Read, were indicted capitally for feloniously and piratically conspiring together to carry off the ship Mary Ann, an East Indiaman, containing indigo, pepper, saltpetre, & c. amount- ing in value to 300,0001. the property of John Palmer, Esq.— Mr. Arabin stated the indictment, aud Mr. Gurney opened the case to the Jury.— The prisoners left their defence with their Counsel, and Mr. Andrews, in behalf of Semmett, called William Bowcer, a Clerk in the Bank for twenty years, who gave him an excellent character.— Mr. Justice Burrough summed up the evidence; and the Jury retired for about twenty minutes, and returned a verdict of— Perri and Norbock, guilty; Read and Semmett, not guilty.— Sir William Scott immediately passed sentence of death upon Peri and Norbock. William Hastings and David Bruce were capi- tally indicted for piratically and feloniously carrying away the Roebuck, bound for England from the coast of Africa, laden with gold dust and elephants teeth, of immense value, the property of John George Nicolls, Esq.— Mr. Justice Holroyd summed up the evidence at considerable length, and the Jury having consulted for a short time, pronounced both the prisoners'^ uilty. The Jury recommended them to mercy; in which recommendation they were joined by Mr. Nicholls, the prosecutor, who stated to the Court, that, during their voyage home in the Inconstant, they conducted themselves so well, that before they had proceeded far, Sir James Yeo ordered them to be diseucumbered of their irons.— Sir Wm. Scott, in passing the awful sentence Of death on them, observed, that the recommendation should be trans- mitted to the Prince Regent. Thursday morning, Robert Smith and Charles Furney were conveyed from Newgate to Execution Dock, where they underwent the awful mandate of the law, for the murder of Thomas Johnson, Cap- tain of the Creole schooner, the circumstances attending which have been previously related.— They were both perfectly resigned to their fate, and truly penitent. Tuesday a Court of Common Council was held at Guildhall, which was numerously attend-' i< being the first Court in the Mayoralty, the 1 orcT Mayor went in state from the Mansion- House to Guildhall. His Lordship addressed the Court in a short speech, stating the high sense he entertained of the honour that had been done him in his re- election, and expressed his determination to per- severe in the same line of conduct that had given so much satisfaction the preceding year.— Reso- lutions of Thanks to the Lord Mayor were voted and ordered to be published in the several news- papers.— The Lord Mayor laid before the Court sundry Resolutions agreed to by the Committee appointed relative to the Police of the City, more especially as regarded the nightly watch of the several Wards, which were read, and after con siderable debate negatived. Thursday Silvester and Ibbetson, the two persons in custody upon suspicion of being concerned in the robbery of the Norwich and Manchester coaches, were brought before the Lord Mayor, at the Mansion- House, and underwent a final exami- nation.— After the evidence had been gone through, Mr. Harmer, for the prisoners, submitted that the proofs against them being incomplete, the case must fall to the ground.— The Lord Mayor said, that however strong suspicion attached to the pri- soners, found, as was distinctly proved, negocialing notes the product of several robberies, he could not in justice any longer detain them.— The pri- soners were discharged. On Monday an inquisition was taken at the sign of the Baldfaced Stag, near Edgeware, on the Edgeware road, on the body of John Cooper, who unfortunately slipped from the footway into the road, when a coal- waggon which was carrying coals went over him. Verdict— Accidental death. On Tuesday an inquisition was taken at the Red Lion, Little Ormond- yard, Great Ormond- street, on the body of James Fisher, aged twenty- five.— Mrs. Fisher, the mother of the deceased, said, that he came home as usual on Sunday night, and after he had been in the house a few minutes, complained of being unwell; he went to the bed and laid him- self down upon it; she went out and returned in a short time, and found him breathless.— Mr. Fer- nandez, surgeon, Great Ormond- street, said he was sent for to the deceased on Sunday night about six o'clock; he found him apparently but a very short time dead; there were no outward marks of violence upon the body ; he was of opinion that he died a natural death. Verdict— Died by the visitation of God. A CASE OF POISONING— An extraordinary charge of murder is about to engage the attention of the Court of Assizes at Paris. The following are the circumstances which constitute the ground nfnci- uM- J tion against the three individuals who are immediately ] to be put upon theif trial*— A man named Gachard ' some time since quitted bis residence at Toulouse, in consequence of losing a place which lie held iu a snuff- manufactory. Having repaired to Paris, lie look up his abode at an inn kept by a landlady named Gillet, No. 12, Rue J. J. Rousseau. lie had not lived here more than a mouth, before he made overtures of marriage to his hostess, influenced either by a real attachment, or the hope of improving the situation of his affairs. These, however, were rejected; and he then took a journey to Mantes, in order to visit a woman named Arthand, at whose house he bad for- merly lived for a considerable time, and to whom be was indebted in the sum of about 600 francs. It ap- pears in evidence, and is extremely important as a collateral proof of the crime with which lie is imme- diately charged, that lie carried with him a turkey on this occasion, and a sum of money just sufficient for the settlement of his debt. The husband of Madame Arthand, who had been ill some time before, died two days after eating of the turkey brought to him by Gachard. Upon his return to Paris, lie again lodged at the inn of his former landlady Gillet, at whose table d'hote he became acquainted with M. Mermet, a physician, and a gentleman named Stevenel, who, as their joint intimacy increased, engaged his two companions to take their dinners at a coffee- house kept by one of his aunts, a widow, named Breton, in the Hue du Fauxbourg du Temple. Gachard lost no time in professing an ardent affection for the widow, and demanding her iu marriage. It appears that her answer was prompt and satisfactory, but that previous to the final consent Stevenel was employed to inquire into the character of the lover. His report was by no means favourable ; and Gachard was represented as a gamester and a libertine. The widow being a little discouraged by this information, her coldness was immediately perceived by Gachard, w ho deter- mined to penetrate into its cause. She scrupled not to acquaint him with all that Stevenel had said re- specting him; the effect of which, communication was a very angry rencontre between the two parlies. \ tew days afterwards, Gachard wrote to Dr. Mermet, who having been equally with her nephew consulted by the widow, whose entire confidence be possessed, had strongly endeavoured to dissuade her from au union which he considered as highly injudicious and extravagant. This opposition on his" part is supposed to have kindled that resentment in the breast of Gachard which led to the tragical event now under investigation. Notwithstanding all the remonstaiiccs , of her two friends, the widow" still favoured his ad- dresses, and it was finally arranged that the marriage should take place at the latter end of June ; but that, in order to conceal their intentions Gachard should absent himself for a fortnight during the interval. It appears that Dr. Mermet was engaged to take a jour- ney about the same time, from which he did not return till the 24th of June. Gachard, who had arrived previously, and to avoid expence taken his lodging in the widow's house, often directed the servant ^ irl to inquire at Dr. Mermet's hotel ( 1 e cafe Chinois). with regard to his expected arrival; and the fact is, that within a day or two after it, he was induced by some means to go in company with three others,, named Lebon, Constant, and Baroche, to break f: st at the widow's inn. They ordered pickled artichokes and an omelet with herbs', a dish of which the Doc tor was remarkably fond. About ten o'clock the repast was served up, and appeared to be extremely well dressed. Lebon undertook the charge of carving j he helped Mermet plentifully, Constant but slightly, and himself still less, not having the same taste for the dish. He gave some also to a person named Chavot, who happened to come in to speak with Dr. Mermet. Baroche likewise ate a very small quantity. Hardly had they returned to their hotel, when I he first n. en- tioned three began to experience the inosl vio eut sensations in their bowels. Lebon and Constant continued ill for several days, and were not freefr< irv a return of their pains at the end of a mouth. Chavot laboured under a cholic, to which he h ul never I ' i » subject, for two days; and Baroche, who had ale the most sparingly, was the only person who remained uninjured. With respect to Dr. Mermet, his sulteringa daily increased, and arrived at last- to such a « ' egree of intensity, « hat lie sunk under tlieiu afler an illness of twelve ( lays. At the commencement oriifs agonies he declared that he had beeu poisoned ; to this be ief he adhered up to the period of his dissolution. The same opinion was entertained by the two physicians who attended him in his sickness, aud confirmed bv Mons. Levisnes, Chief Physician of the Hospital of Incurables, who was appointed to preside at I he opening of the body. Public opinion instantly pointed out Gachard as the author of the crime. Mermet himself had been persuaded of it, although, from a generosity truly noble, he declined accusing him, lest he should thereby involve the widow, whom he be- lieved to be innocent, in the same suspicion. This suspicion, however, acquiring fresh strength and con- sistency every- day, - warrants were at length issued against Gachard and his wife; for during the period of Mermet's illness they had carried their marriage into effect. Alexandrine Craney, their female, was also taken into custody; and the result is, that they now stand jointly charged with the murder, by poisoning Dr. Mermet. The deceased had mentioned to Dr. Halle, his physician, that Gachard was the person who prepared the eggs for the fatal dish ; and with regard to the guilt of the two women, the charge against them mainly rests on the obstinacy with which they supported, in the face of all truth, the defence set up by Gachard, and the warmth, especially of the servant, which they manifested for his excul- pation. She was also heard to say, during the illness of Mermet, and before any suspicion had attached to her, " If I thought that I should be arrested, I w ould kill myself." Their many contradictions and in. consistencies supply additional circumstances against them. THE COLCHESTER GAZETTE. The Paris papers received to Friday last detail the proceedings in the Chamber of Deputies. By the decisions which hare taken place, it is clear that the Constitutionalists in that Assembly have a decided majority. The President which they have obtained is of their opinions, and the plan of the budget, which has been brought forward, is in direct opposition to the sentiments of the other party. The essential parts of the ways and means are, for immediate relief, a loan and increase of taxation; and for the gradual extinction of the debt, an augmentation of the sinking fund, with the proceeds of the sale of a certain portion of the forests. The details are given with all the confidence of the most perfect success. The difficulties of the present appear forgotten in viewing the prospects of the future. On which the mover, Count Corveto, ob- serves, that at the end of five years, the expendi- ture of France, disburdened of the subsidies, though charged with the interest of loans and ar- rears, will be far from swallowing up all the receipts which the improved system of taxation will produce. — In a new Government, like that of France, over a country pre- eminently blessed by nature for all the advantages both of commerce and agriculture, there needs but tranquillity to establish a credit sufficient for the relief of all temporary embarrassments; but on that tranquillity rests all the financier's hopes. The political horizon in France is evi- dently less clouded, and if any thing be wanting to the King's dignified declaration of an adherence to the Constitutional Charter, to make him reign in the hearts of all the worthy of his subjects, it is a sincere and positive oblivion of the past, and a consequent abolition of all further proscriptions. But, on the contrary, we find, notwithstanding the existence of internal peace, the adherents of Bonaparte are still raked from the obscurity to which their crimes had exiled them. Lieutenant- General Baron Amiel has been convicted, in his absence, by the First Permanent Council of War, of treason against the King on the 23d of March, 1815, and sentenced to death. How futile are such proceedings, however black the offence, when the criminal is not within the reach of that law which condemns him ? By the Hamburgh mail we have the account of the proceedings on the opening of the Germanic Diet at Frankfort. The objects of the several Sovereigns forming that league will thence be pro- pounded ; and as the solidity of union must depend for permanency, on the degree of happiness con- ceded to the people, we trust that the remembrance of the servile state from which that Empire has been raised, by the heroism of its subjects, will secure to them that rank among the free, as to make them for ever proud of the enfranchisement of their several Princes. In some of the foreign journals there is an ac- count of a revolution in China, which produced the dethronement of the Sovereign. From the New York papers to the 18th ult. it appears that Captain Thomassin, of the schooner Good Hope, who arrived at Charleston on the 6th, in ten days from Havannah, states, that General Morillo had proclaimed Carthagena a free port.—- The differences between Spain and the United Slates assume a most serious aspect. The New Orleans Gazette, of the 13th September, gives a long detail of the capture of the American ship Firebrand, by the Spanish squadron, consisting of the Diana, of twenty- four guns, and two vessels of eighteen. The account, which is not official, as- serts, that immediately on the Spanish squadron approaching, they fired several guns at the Fire- brand, ordering the Captain, in a furious tone, to come on board, where a scene of very vulgar abuse commenced — every epithet that could disgrace persons entrusted with command for the American States, their officers imprisoned, men flogged, & c. It however appears, that the Spanish Commander would not take the sword of Captain Cunningham, who offered it to him on coming ou board, as a signal of his capture. No account is given of their quitting the Spanish squadron. The New Orleans paper, in giving these details, mentions, that a war is almost inevitable, and that a meeting of the in- habitants of the town was fixed, to address the American Government ou this interesting sub- ject. The late outrage committed by the Spaniards on the United States schooner Firebrand, now appears to have been done by the fleet which convoyed Admiral Apodaca to Vera Cruz from Havannah. lfso, it was done in presence of a Spanish Admiral, and the future Viceroy of Mexico. The cause oileged by the Spaniards was, that itie Worth Americans had no right to navigate the Mexican Gulf; and this, by the bye, is an immense ocean on their own coasts. Hence a pretty fair inference inay be drawn how the Spaniards would act, if they were able to blockade the whole coast from the Mississippi to Cape Horn. German papers to the 12th instant, received on Wednesday, mention, that the Emperor of Austria has issued letters patent for the opening of a volun- tary loan at five per cent, interest, in order, says the preamble, " To give greater extent to the measures for calling in the paper currency, and with particular regard to the situation of the public creditor, which we desire to improve, as far as the ability of the State will permit." Letters from Vienna announce the arrival in that capital of the Count de Neipperg, Grand Squire of the Archduchess Maria Louisa, who comes in the name of his Sovereign to felicitate the Emperor of Austria on his marriage with the Princess of Bavaria. It was learned from this Nobleman that the Duchess of Parma had been in great danger of losing her life, having fallen from her horse into a torrent; but happily the Count de Neipperg, who accompanied her, succeeded in saving her, by springing into the stream. According to assurances given in the Frankfort Gazette of the 15th, the price of corn is gradually diminishing, and the apprehensions of a scarcity are considerably alleviated. The people of Constantinople, when they heard of Lord Exmouth's attack upon Algiers, were en- raged, as they always regarded the Algerines as true Believers. Their rage was appeased, however, when they found that the inhabitants had suffered so little. The Captain Pacha, who is with the fleet at Smyrna, declares, that the Ottoman Government would never have suffered the Algerines to recruit in the Provinces, if it had been known that they were to fight against the European Powers. The French frigate Normand has arrived in the West Indies with a letter of thanks from Louis XVI11. to Sir James Leith, for his conduct at Gua- daloupe during the insurrection in favour of Bona- parte, and his Majesty has conferred on his Excel- lency the dignity of Great Cross of the Order of Merit. The Tribunal of Correctional Police at Rouen, by its judgment of the 14th Inst, condemned the Sieur Polliers, a miller at Darnetal, to a fine of 1000 francs, and two months imprisonment, for ussing fraudulent means to raise the price of corn. Extract of a letter from Stutgard, Nov. 2.— " It was during an excursion which the late King made on the 25th to Constadt, that he was seized with the distemper of which he died. The object of his visit was to see the fourteen teeth of a mam- moth of enormous size, which had been found in a place called Peelberg. The King staid a consider- able time, expressed much satisfaction, and di- rected that they should be dug up, with the view of having them conveyed to the cabinet of natural history at Stutgard. This, in point of fact, has since been done. His Majesty, however, took so severe a cold on this occasion, that on his return he caused his feet to be rubbed for two hours with- out success in restoring warmth and circulation. The physicians considered the symptoms to be of a serious nature, and the King was confined to his chamber. His malady progressively increased up to the 30th of October, when he expired at two o'clock in the morning, with astonishing com- posure. A few hours before his death, he sent to the reigning Prince the key of his private chest, recommending his country to him, and the care of a few particular individuals." The first act by which the new King of Wirtem- berg signalized his reign was to direct the purchase of grain in the ports of the Baltic, in order to insure the subsistence of his subjects.— All the fallow- deer of the menagerie which cannot be fed within the limits of its park are to be destroyed, and the potatoes, barley, oats, and every kind of grain used at present for their nourishment, will be distri- buted to the poor. All the late contracts relative to the menagerie, one of the richest of Europe in foreign animals, are annulled, and the contractors will be indemnified for the losses to which they may be subjected in consequence. The States of Wirtemberg have presented an Address of Condolence to their new Monarch, in which they take the opportunity of urging the re- cognition of the fundamental laws of the country. The rescript or answer of the King justifies the general expectations entertained of his patriotism and justice. His Majesty candidly admits, that the happiness of the people cannot be obtained but by a representative Constitution. The immediate cause of the Grand Duke of Mecklenburg Strelitz's death was a defluxion of the breast. He died at Strelitz ou the 6th instant. The present Grand Duke was at that time in Switzerland, but immediately, on learning the event, he hastened fo Strelitz to assume the reins ol Government, and passed through Frankfort on the 12 instant.— The death of the Grand Duke, his father, has thrown into mourning a great number of the Courts of Germany, who were attached to him by the ties of direct consanguinity. His Royal Highness was brother to our Queen, and father of the late Queen of Prussia, of the Princess of La Tour and Taxis, of the Duchess of Cumberland, and the Duchess of Saxe- Hilburghausen. At five o'clock on Wednesday afternoon, Prince Nicholas, brother to the Emperor of Russia, and suite, arrived at St. Alban's House in eight car- riages, tvTo of them Royal, in which were the Prince and his principal attendants. The Prince's principal attendants are Lieut.- General Koutsusoff, Aide- de- Camp to the Emperor; the Councillors of State Barons Nicholay, Savrasoff, and Glinka; Lieut.- Colonel Mansey, Captain Perofkey, and Dr. Crichton.— In a short time after their arrival Sir Benjamin Bloomfield waited upon the Prince with the Prince Regents's congratulatory compli- ments upon his arrival in England. Count Leiven, the Russian Ambassador, also attended the Prince, and dined with him.— Sentinels are stationed at the door, and every attention is to be paid to the Prince, during his stay in England, by command of the Prince Regent. A very curious circumstance happened during the time Prince Nicholas was visiting the heights at Dover:— The firing of the cannon, to celebrate his arrival, frightened a horse that was standing in a cart in such a manner, that after running some distance, it fell down, and almost instantly expired. The Prince passed by at the time, and inquired the cause, when being informed it was occasioned by fright at the firing of the guns, he said, as he was the cause of the poor animal's death, he should insist on recompensing the owner, and accordingly gave the poor man to whom it belonged 151. which was considerably more than its value. On visit- ing the Castle, he very generously gave the pri- soners 101. Braham was married on Monday, at Manchester, to Miss Bolton, a beautiful young lady of that place. They went to pass the honeymoon at Bootle, a bathing place, about four miles from Liverpool, where he has taken a house. COLCHESTER, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1816. THF.

UNSOUND CORN.— It will be gratifying to the public, to learn that the bad effects occasioned by eating bread made from unripe corn can be pre- vented by a very simple and very salutary process: this subject has had the consideration of some of the most eminent of the faculty. The first hint as to the utility of soda, originated with a medical gen- tleman in the metropolis, who was requested to prescribe for a family perpetually disordered in the bowels by bread made of unwholesome flour, and which proved effectual. Half an ounce of soda, dissolved in water with the flour, is sufficient for each quartern loaf; it will correct any sourness in the bit- ad, and render it light and wholesome. Let any person make the trial, one loaf with soda and another without, no other proof will be necessary. It would be a great benefit to the community, if the public baker would adopt the use of it; particularly where that pernicious custom is practised of using alum, as it would counteract the bad effects thereof. A cow, the property of Mr. H. Cornwall, who keeps the Star publie- house in Jesus- lane, Cam- bridge, last week brought forth six calves, perfectly formed and alive, but they all soon died. Last week two fine co « s belonging to Mr. Maris, of Shelford, Cambridgeshire, and three others in the same village, died through being incautiously fed with clover. About half past five o'clock in the evening of Tuesday se'nnight, a most alarming fire broke out in the hemp, sack, and mattress manufactory of Mr. T. Harris, jun. of Downham Market, Norfolk, which in a short time was totally consumed, toge- ther with the whole of the machinery, implements, stock in trade, and two stacks of wheat standing near the said premises. So dreadful was the con- flagration, that the flames were visible at a distance of ten or twelve miles from Downham. About fifty fine mattresses were amongst the effects which fell a prey to the devouring element. On Sunday last the Duke of Sussex and the Lord Mayor of London honoured the Rev. G. F. Bates, Vicar of West Malling, with a visit. His Royal Highness and his Lordship ( ravelled in the same carriage, and were received by the inhabitants of the town with every token of the greatest respect. In the afternoon, the visitors attended divine ser- vice at the church, and a most excellent sermon was preached by the Reverend Vicar, from part of the 13th verse of the 148th Psalm—" His name atone is excellent" His Royal Highness aud his Lordship passed the night at the house of Mr. Bates, and next morning they went through Maid- stone on their way to Rochester.— On Monday, his Royal Highness and the Lord Mayor dined with the Mayor and Body Corporate of Rochester; on which occasion they were presented with the freedom of that ancient and highly repectable city. On Sunday last, as a gentleman was coming from Ipswich to Shotley, he was stopped by a young man and two boys, who requested him to give them something. They had scarcely waited for an answer, when the eldest pulled a large stone from under his frock, and swore he would knock out his brains, if he did not comply; but the gen- tleman having pistols, and threatening to shoot them, they made off with precipitation. On Saturday se'nnight an inquisition was taken by J. E. Sparrow, Gent, one of the Coroners of Ipswich, on view of the body of Mary Daldy, of the age of seven years, whose death was occasioned by a heated poker falling out of the fire upon her clothes, by which she was dreadfully burnt, and survived but a few hours. The Jury returned a verdict of— Accidental Death. MARRIED. On Monday last, Mr. W. Peck, grocer, of Lavenham, to Miss Lydia Priest, of Bury A few days since, at Padstow, Mr. Slauson, to Miss Pewes.— This pair may be justly said to have expedited their business, as they were married on Tuesday, grew sullen ou Wednesday, did not speak to each other on Thursday, on Friday words came forth, which produced an open breach, so that ou Saturday evening they separated by mutual consent. r ately, in London, Mr. William Kent, farmer, of East Tilbury, to Miss Mary Dorrington, daughter of Mr. David Dorrington, of the George Inn, Mucking, in this county.

FARMING STUCK INSURED IN ONE SUM. COLCHESTER. ESSEX AND SUFFOLK EQUITABLE IN- SURANCE SOCIETY, ESTABLISHED AT CHRISTMAS, 1802. IT having been frequently represented that the excellent Principles upon which the above SOCIETY has been formed, are not sufficiently known to the luha- bitautn of the above Counties ; and in consequence of the very great aud superior Advantages arising from the Plan, and its prosperity, it is thought highly importaut that the same should be universally understood. The Sums annually paid as Premiums for Insurance are precisely the same as those required by other Offices.— No Demand whatever is made for new Policies. All Losses from Fire by Lightning will be made good AND FARMING STOCK INSURED IN ONE SUM. At the Reduced Rate of Two Shillings per Cent. Each Insurer will become a Proprietor, and will parti- cipate iu the Profits of the Institution, the Division of which ( notwithstanding heavier losses than might rea- sonably have been expected) has been 50 per cent, or Half the Sum originally paid, and the same has been paid to all Persons at the end of Seven Years from the date of their Policies; and when it is taken into calculation, that dur- ing this period, very large Sums have been expended in Fire Engines, Printing, and innumerable Expellees, not possible again to occur, although necessary for protec- tion aud publicity, it may reasonably be presumed the Dividends will considerably increase, particularly as the number of Subscribers has lately been greatly augmented. The General Account may be inspected by every Insurer. As many Persons have been deceived by erroneous opi- nions that every Insurer must be insured and pay his Insurance fo> Seven Years to entitle him to receive his Dividend, it is thought proper to inform the Public, that any Person insuring for One Year only, is entitled to a Dividend of 50 percent, iu proportion,' at the expiration of Seven Years from the time the Insurance is made. Insurances have already been received by this Society to the amount of SIX MILLIONS AND UPWARDS. Dividends have already been paid to more than 2000 Insurers, who have received 70061. up to Michaelmas last. Proposals may be had gratis, Insurances received, and Dividends paid quarterly, as the Seven Years expire, by all the Society's Agents; and by me, FRANK ABELL, Secretary. 21 » < November, 1816. LONDON MARKETS. MARK- LANE, MONDAY, NOV. IS, 1816. Though the supply of Wheat to- day was by no means scanty, the demaud was brisker than last week, at an ad- vance of from 3s. to 5s. per quarter.— Rye was also clearer, but Barley on much the same terms as this day se'nnight.— Old Tick Beans met a ready sale at an increase iu vaUe of about 2s.— Boiling Pease were lower.— New Oats, b - ing generally of inferior quality, experienced a reduciion from 3s. to 4s. aud old Oafs were somewhat ou the decliuc. — Flour has risen 5s. per sack. WEDNESDAY, NOV. 20. The market being this day btt scantily supplied, fine old Wheat, of prime quality, was somewhat dearer; as were also old Beans, of both kinds.— Other articles were nearly at Monday's prices.

[ FROM THE POETICAL MIRROR.] Wat o' the Cleuch came down through the dale, In helmet and hauberk of glistening mail; Full proudly he came on his berry- black steed, Caparison'd, belted for warrior deed. O bold was the bearing, and brisk the career, And broad was the cuirass, and long was the spear, And tall was the plume that waved over the brow Of that dark reckless borderer, Wat o' the Clench. His housing, the buck's hide, of rude massy fold, Was tassel I'd and tufted with trappings of gold; The henchman was Stalworth his buckler that bore; He had bowmen behind him, and billmen before; He had Bellenden, Thorleshope, Reddlefordgreen, And Habo'the Swire, and Jock of Poldean; And Whitstone, and Halston, and hard- riding Hugh, Were all at the back of bold Wat o' the Cleuch. As Wat o' the Cleuch came down through the dale, The hinds stood aghast and the maidens grew pale, The Ladies to casement and palisade ran, The vassals to loophole and low barbican. And saw the bold borderers trooping along, Each crooning his war- note or gathering song; O many a rosy check changed its hue When sounding the slogan of Wat o' the Cleuch! As downward they past by the Jed and the Ronle, The Monk took his crozier, his cord, and his cowl, And kneel'd to the Virgin with book and with bead, And said Ave- Maria and mutter'd his creed, And loudly invoked, as lie clasped the rood, Saint Withold, Saint Waidave, Saint Clare, and Saint Jude! He dreaded the Devil, to give him his due, Bat held him as nothing to Wat o' the Cleuch. SPA- FIELDS MEETING. On Friday, about 20,000 persons assembled in Spa- Fields in consequence of a Requisition from a Com- mittee at Shoreditch ( which requisition had been pla- carded lor some days), addressed to distressed trades- men, manufacturers, and mariners, and calling upon them to meet, for the purpose of adopting some mea- sures with a view to their relief. The people began to collect so early as ten o'clock, and by half past twelve some thousands were in the field. About this period a coach drove up, from the window of which it was announced that Mr. Hunt, of Bristol, was coming. As soon as the coach stopped, Mr. Parkes, a dissenting preacher, mounted upon it, and exhorted the people to be on their guard. He declared his ignorance of those who were in the coach, and of the proceedings in contemplation. He was not indeed aware by whom, or through whom, the Meeting was convened ; but he could venture to say, that Sir Francis Burdett, whose name he had heard in the crowd, was not to be expected. From his Personal intercourse with that Honourable Baronet and his friend Major Cartwright, he was enabled to state that neither of these respectable individuals were likely to give their sanction to a Meeting of this nature. However, if the measures proposed were of a proper constitutional character, they should have his decided support, and he would probably address the Meeting again in the course of the day ; but if these measures should happen to be of a different character, he would immediately retire from the field, feeling that to be the line of conduct most consistent with his duty, lie would not embarrass any set of men who meant well to the country, but yet he should not commit himself in any measures of which he disap- proved. As to the Government, we were not now under the administration of Pitt, but condemned to suffer under an Administration as contemptible in talent, as it was exceptionable in conduct; for the distress of the people was too notorious to be denied, and their grievances ought to be immediately and efficiently redressed, as he had observed upon opening the business at the late Westminster Meeting; but if any proposition were brought forward which had not a correct tendency, mischief might accrue. Again he cautioned the people to beware; for their enemies were among them. The occasion was important and critical, and it behoved the people to conduct them- selves with dignity and firmness. If they acted with due moderation— if they adhered to the Constitution— their present suffering, even severe as it was, might serve to approximate their complete salvation ; but intemperance and riot must operate to injure their cause ( Applauses.)— It behoved them, therefore, to beware of the intemperate or the immoral; for they ought to know and feel that their present unhappy condition was the result of intemperance and immo- rality, from which public corruption and enormous taxation naturally sprung. That unnecessary and cruel war, which was in fact the source of all the evils under which the country groaned, was the edict of immorality. The people should therefore shrink from immoral men, however ardently they professed to support popular rights and privileges; for such men could never serve the country. However plausible their pretensions— however flattering their promises, the views of such men must be always suspicious, and their advice prejudicial to any public cause. Having made these precautionary remarks, to which he hoped the Meeting would carefully attend, the Rev. Gentleman expressed his intention to wait for the propositions about to be brought forward, before he again interfered with the business of the day. Mr. Hunt ( the well- known orator) soon after ap- peared. Having taken his situation on the top of a coach, from which he spoke a minute or two, he re- paired to the Merlin's Cave public- house, where, from a window he harangued the Meeting. Mr. W. Clark was called to the chair. Mr. Hunt observed he had received a letter from the Secretary to attend this Meeting, and though he was one hundred miles in the country when the letter came, lie felt it his duty to come forward. He always considered it his highest honour to act as the voice of Englishmen directed, and he therefore should now shortly call their attention to those miseries which they at present endured, and to the cause of those Miseries. It would be impossible for him barely to enumerate them, as the recital would occupy a month. One instance of these miseries occurred last night, He saw a poor Spitalfields weaver, who had a wife and three children, and who declared he would ac- tually be thankful to any person who would put him and his family to death Such unparalleled miseries originated, not in the idleness or dissipation of English- man, for perhaps no country on earth, for time imme- morial, had produced such independent, enlightened, i < i t strious mfcii as England; but arose from the in). in'use unnecessary taxation with which they were hardened ; from the corruption existing in the admi- nistration of Government, and from the long, bloody • I disastrous war in which the country had been involved— a war not more hostile to the liberties of foreign countries than destructive of the privileges . d rights of British subjects. That war had re- stored the Bourbon family to France and Spain, and the Pope, with all the horrors of the inquisition, to v. It was a well- known fact, that wherever the of France extended in Spain, there the inqui. si- • • I. id been abolished, while iu truth it had been supported whenever the British army had the preva- lence. They now had the English Bastile in view, ( here the orator pointed to the Cold Bath- fields pri- son) and they knew well how agonizing the suffer- ings of Englishmen had been while the Habeas Corpus Act was suspended. He wished them to remember this, as it might caution them how to beware of wolves who came in sheep's clothing. He had been called a quarrelsome fellow ; but he never quarrelled with any whom he knew to be sterling friends to the people. Where were the City Orators to- day ?— Why slinking behind their counters, or compromising with Govern- ment for an Exchequer writ.— After the example set before them by the inhabitants of Glasgow, Man- chester, and Birmingham, he trusted they would show themselves calm, dispassionate, and sober in their conduct. He was aware of the advantages they might derive from physical strength; but he trusted, while mental strength was of any avail it would be pre- ferred. Their peculiar duty was meantime to pray for their rights; and this duty was certainly sanctioned by the Divine law, and by the daily practice of worshipers iu the temple of the Deity. If their duty- was to supplicate the Divine Being for mercies, why not also pray and implore Ministers, the servants of the country, to give them their rights. The time was not far distant, when, unless a speedy reform took place, a bloody issue would follow; and if ever that came, he should be proud to stand first in the ranks. Every thing they ate or drank, or wore, or even saw, was taxed.—[ He here went into a statement, from a Report of the House of Commons, which he held in his hand, of the incomes granted to the various per- sonages of the Royal Family; and entered into a detail of pensions and places enjoyed by a number of indi- viduals, on which he made some severe comments.]— Yon have all heard, he proceeded, of George Canning — an impudent fellow— an unmanly calumniator of the people, who had the audacity— the insolence— to call them the swinish multitude, off scourings, and to apply to them other approbrious epithets; but you do not know his family; nay, I believe he does not know his own grandfather; yet Mother Hunn, who brought this hopeful cub into the world, had 5001. for that useful event, and her worthy daughters had also 5001 each; and Mrs. Huskisson, wife of the Surveyor- Ge neral of Woods and Forests, had 6501. while the poor widow of a seaman, whose life was lost in endeavour- ing to preserve the Royal Charlotte, had only 101. yearly! The late Meeting at the London Tavern, honoured by the sinecurists, who had a pull upon the public purse, put him in mind of the man who stole a goose, and made a pride of having given the giblets iu alms. They had also heard of the Hampden club, but he would ask how had that club done any service to the public? They had two Members among them, ( Sir Francis Burdett and Major Cartwright,) who had hitherto prevented the club doing wrong; but pray, he would ask, what good had that club done to society, or what good were they likely to do? There was not a Whig in the country whom he could trust, for whether they were in place or out of place, he could only view them as wolves in sheep's clothing. They had, while in power, added every thing to the burthens of the people, by increase of oppressive tax- ation, by additional sinecures, by increasing salaries, and by continuing the bloody, unnecessary war, for the restoration of the Bourbons and despotism. At his appearance formerly at Westminster, Brougham, the famous gownsman, had come forward, but he soon sent Brougham a packing, and so deserved all the Whigs. He proposed not to dissolve the Meeting that day, but, when some Resolutions had been agreed to, to adjourn till the first day of the meeting of Parlia- ment, then to convene in Palace- yard, and in a body present the petition. It was proper to present a strong petition to the Prince, and to tell him the country must and should be relieved.— After some further remarks, he concluded by reading a series of Resolu- tions to the following effect:— " That the country was in a state of the most fearful and unparalleled distress and misery, felt by all classes, excepting those who derived their fortunes from the taxes levied upon the people; the farmer, the manufacturer, and the tradesman, were all involved in the same lament- aide oppression. " That the cause of these intolerable burdens was, first, the immense amount of a debt contracted by the borough- mongers, for the purpose of carrying on a long, unneces- sary, and unjust war ; the main object of which appeared to have been to stifle civil, political, and religious liberty, and to restore despotism throughout the country ;— secondly, the maintenance of an army in France against the unanimous wish of the French nation ;— thirdly, the keeping up of an enormous standing army, with a view to curb the people, and to compel them to submit to pay war taxes in times of peace;— and, fourthly, the lavish ex- penditure of the public money, by innumerable men and women who hold pensions, grants, and annuities, without performing the smallest service to their country. " That the sole cause of these abominable practices was a want of reform in Parliament, and by the return of Members to the House of Commons by such means as were confessed to be by one of its Members as notorious as the sun at noon- day. " That a Petition be presented to his Royal Highness the Prince Regent, beseeching him to take into Ins con- in considering the means of obtaining redress. No other country in Europe could exhibit such a noble spectacle, ( Applause) for no other country possessed that right of petitioning which the British Constitution secured to those who lived under its auspices; and unless that. Tight were impaired either by violence on the one hand, or by an arbitrary stretch of power on the other, the people of England must always enjoy the means of obtaining the redress of their grievances. Therefore he exhorted the people tenaciously to pre- serve this invaluable privilege. With this view he hoped the Meeting would demean itself with dig- nified propriety— that it would guard against every calumny, and vindicate its integrity by the temperance and regularity of his conduct. Therefore the people should be cautious not to lend themselves to any fac- tious person or parly. It was to be recollected that the liberty of the French people was the victim of fac- tion. If that gallant people, who made such a noble struggle for freedom at the outset of the Revolution, had not allowed themselves to be imposed upon by the demagogues who in succession held forth plausible professions of a solicitude for popular rights, while their only view was self- elevation and arbitrary power, liberty would have been established in that great country which had, through the delusions of faction, so unfortunately become a body of indiscriminate exe- cutioners ( Applauses.)— To avert from this country such horrible calamity— to prevent the commission of crime, he trusted the people of England would be on their guard Their distresses were no doubt such as ought to be relieved— but the people of this country had a still higher object to look to, namely, the pre- servation of that Constitution under which their an- cestors had flourished, and through which alone they could hope to relieve their wants and achieve their deliverance. Mr. Hunt objected to the Amendment, prefering rather an adjournment to Palace- yard on the first day of the next session, but after a few words from him, expressive of a hope that Sir Francis Burdett would present the petition into the hands of the Regent, it was fully adopted, together with the Petition. It being then proposed that Mr. Hunt should be appointed to accompany Sir Francis Burdett iu pre- senting the Petition, he said he should comply with the wish of the Meeting, and, in conjunction with Sir Francis Burdett, seek out the Regent wherever he was to be found, whether at Carlton- House, the Stud- House, the Brighton Pavilion, or Manchester- square. —( Laughter and applauses.) About half after four o'clock the Meeting broke up. to be disposed of as old silver. He applied to a merchant, a resident of this place, who asked per- mission of the Governor. He thought that the amount would not exceed 3 or 40001. sterling. The Governor consented to the merchant's going to look at the plate, but observed, that the amount should not be paid to . Bonaparte, but deposited in the hands of the Governor, or the Purveyor. When the merchant went to look at the plate, in- stead of the sum above mentioned, the property was worth about 10,5001. sterling— a sum rather too great to be procured here at so short a notice. However, in a day or two it is expected that this curious negociation will be brought to a close. It is said, that Bonaparte wishes by these means to make himself independent of the British Govern- ment, and that, in future, he will never make any application for money, but live on his own re- sources. His suite receive their regular allowance from Government.— This place is uncommonly lively. The French Commissioner is the laughing- stock of all the inhabitants. He is called the French hair- dresser. Indeed, he has the appear- ance of belonging to that fraternity." I sideration the burdens of his suffering, and patient, but starving people; and imploring his Royal Highness to cause Parliament to be assembled, in order that measures might be adopted to redress these evils, to feed the hungry, and to clothe the naked, so that the unhappy and starving people might be preserved from desperation; and above all, to listen, before it was too late, to the earnest and repeated prayers of the nation." Mr. Watson, sen. in seconding the Resolutions, dwelt upon the distresses which all descriptions of people, excepting those only connected with the Go- vernment, were at present condemned to endure. Mr. Watson, jun. moved, as an amendment to Mr. Hunt's proposition, that instead of adjourning the Meeting until the first day of the next Sessions of Par- liament in Palace- yard, it should assemble again on Monday fortnight, to receive the answer of the Prince Regent to the petition to be presented by Sir Francis Burdett. For if the Meeting should be adjourned until the meeting of Parliament, who could answer when it was likely to Assemble again? It was reported that Parliament would meet in February, or at the close of January ; but who could say that it might not be the will of the Regent, or the advice of his Minis- ters, to postpone that Meeting still longer, possibly until 1818, and was the public distress still to continue without relief, or any Meeting to consider the means of obtaining it? On these grounds he thought that the Meeting should determine to assemble again on Monday fortnight, in order to receive the Regent's answer to the petition, and to determine what further measures circumstances might appear to require. Mr. Quin ( a Student at Law) seconded the amend- ment in a very eloquent and impressive speech. The object of the Meeting was, he observed, quite simple, and the necessity which called for it obviously neces- sary. That necessity had already been so fully detailed, that he did not think it requisite to heighten the pic- ture. That picture was indeed truly afflicting. For distress of the most galling description was the lot of every class of the community, save that one by whom it was created. Yes, our manufacturing towns, which had been hertofore the scene of honest industry and active skill, were now become as silent as the in hospi- table wilderness, while those numerous sails which had been so long pressing to every port in the uni- verse, were now to be found idly lying in our own harbours. The prosperity of the British Empire was iu fact shaken to its foundation. But amidst this cala- mity, it was a great consolation to witness such an orderly congregation as he had then the honour of addressing. Every man who heard hint must be a sufferer, and yet the assembly was patient, but firm, From the box of the chariot in which Mr. Hunt came to the Meeting, a tri- coloured flag ( green, white, and red) was displayed, which bore these inscriptions:—" Bread to feed the Hungry"— Truth to crush the Oppressors"—" Justice to punish crimes." This flag Mr. Hunt frequently waved from the window of the public- house from which he spoke. When the persons who assembled in Spa- Fields began to disperse, a mob of boys collected together, and put a loaf at the top of a stick, and proceeded towards the west end of the town. They passed up the Strand, and stopped at a baker's near Nor- folk- street, but did not attempt any thing there. They broke the windows of the Morning Chronicle office; they took some bread from the shop of Mr. Alexander, the baker, near Exeter Change, and also some fish from the shop of Mr. Grantage, the fishmonger, No. 41, Strand; they then went up St. Martin's- lane, where they attacked the premises of Mr. Morris, a baker, in Green- street; they broke the windows of Mr. Brooksbank, baker, at the corner, and took some bread away with them The mob went from thence to Cranbourne- street; they broke the window of a baker in Cranbourne- street as they were taking down the shutters, but when they found that cheap bread was written upon a paper, they went away without doing any further damage; and went again towards King- street, St. Giles's, and were proceeding lo further excesses at a baker's shop, when the Bow- street officers and patrole came up, and a general attack took place. The officers secured five ol the ring- leaders, who had flambeaus and bread, but the mob rescued them all except one, and in so doing beat Ashleby, one of the patrole, in a dreadful manner. Several of the officers were hurt. The mob then divided into two parties; one party went towards Drury- lane, and the other remained about St. Giles's. The police in a very few minutes dis- persed those who remained in St. Giles's, and went into Drury- lane after the other party, which had decreased very much, and continued to do so at the approach of the police, and in the space of a quarter of an hour the whole had disappeared, without any more damage than a few broken windows. The mob, as they passed through Newport- market, cleared several butchers' stalls of their meat.— At nine o'clock all was quiet.— The person seized and retained by the police was examined at Bow- street in the evening. He had much the appearance of having been to sea; he said his name was John Severn, he was of no trade, but was clerk to Mr. Hill, a dyer, in Great Pulteney- street, Golden- square.— The officers deposed, that the prisoner was in front of the mob, when they broke Mr. Morris's windows; a large piece of hard cemented mortar was found in Mr. Morris's shop, and in the prisoner's pocket were found two small pieces of the same mortar. The prisoner denied throwing any mortar, and wished to be admitted to bail, but the Magistrate refused, and he was committed for further examination. Lord Castlereagh's house, in St. James's- square, was attacked by the mob on Friday evening, and twelve squares of glass were broken. The mob had previously attempted to tear up the iron railing in Leicester- square, to arm themselves, but failed. BONAPARTE. When the Thais sloop of war left St. Helena, on the 30th September, Bonaparte was well ; but it is reported, that as his displeasure with the Go- vernor, Sir Hodson Lowe, continued, all access to him by strangers, or communication with his re- sidence, was cut off. It is stated, that when he was informed by Sir Hudson that Government had ordered the reduction of his allowance from 20,0001. to 80001. per annum, for himself and establish- ment, he instantly requested that an armourer from one of the regiments might be sent to him, to strike off the eagles and other Imperial emblems from his plate, being determined to dispose of all that part of his property, and not to be limited to so scanty an allowance. Extract of a Letter from St. Helena, September 22,1810.—" A very curious circumstance occurred here a few days ago. Bonaparte, in a rage, or- dered his service of plate to be broken up, the eagles which were engraved to be effaced, and the whole ADMIRAL SIR ROGER CURTIS. We regret to have to announce the decease of that distinguished officer, Admiral Sir Roger Curtis, Bart. G. C. B. The public services of this eminent man, particularly at the famous siege of Gibraltar, and on the glorious 1st of June, must be fresh in the general recollection; the kindness of his heart, and the benignity of his manners, endeared him to the circle of his family and friends. He was at once a very able and a very good man, and his death is alike a public and a private loss. He died on Thursday se'nnight, at his seat at Gatcombe, near Portsmouth, at a very advanced age, and is succeeded in his title by his only son, a Captain in the navy. The following are some particulars of his pro- fessional career:— Sir Roger was born on the 4th of June, 1740, and passed his probationary term of service, at an early age, under Admiral Barrington. in 1771 he was made Lieutenant, and in 1770 at- tained the rank of Commander; and for the ex- traordinary ability with which he exercised the discretionary powers of his orders on the coast of America, in the opening of the Revolution in that country, he was promoted in the following year to be Lord Howe's Flag Captain. This was un- doubtedly the greatest proof that the Commander in Chief could give of the confidence he reposed in the youngest Officer on the North American station; and the intimacy that then took place between that truly great man and the subject of our present regret, ended only with death. When little more than three years a Post Captain, he was selected, in the Brilliant frigate, to convey dispatches to Gibraltar, in which he was fortunately successful; and in that fortress he remained for nine months, daily evincing substantial proofs of bravery, guided by judgment, and supported by humanity. In the relief of that garrison by our fleet, he was appointed to the Victory, but in consequence of the pressing solicitation of Governor Elliott, Ministers sent him again to Gibraltar in the Thetis frigate, having, during his short stay in England, received the honour of Knighthood. He remained on that sta- tion until the peace, when he commissioned the Ganges guard- ship at Portsmouth. The Spanish armament found him for a third time, in 1790, again Flag Captain to Lord Howe; and on the promotion of the Hon. Leveson Gower to his flag, was appointed Captain of the Fleet. In the Russian armament, the following year, he commanded the Brunswick, of 74 guns. At the opening of the French Revolution, he was singled out to be the Captain of the Fleet for the Channel service, and was spoken of in the highest terms by Lord Howe, in his official dispatches, " for his able council and conduct in every branch of the service;" and lor which, on his Majesty's visit to Portsmouth after the glorious victory of the 1st of June, he was created a Baronet, and promoted to his flag. Since then he served in the Channel, and commanded at the Cape of Good Hope and Portsmouth; and in the latter command evinced the most determined ardour for the service, by the zeal and regularity with which he forwarded troops and necessaries to the Peninsula of Spain, and regulated the immense- ly rich fleets of the trade of this county, which were compelled to assemble at Spithead for pro- tection. Not the least, however, of Sir Robert Curtis's services, is the being selected to preside at the Board for the revision of all the riles and regulations of every department of the navy. Mr. Preston, Member for Ashburton, in a pam- phlet recently published, says, " It is supposed that the present national expenditure ii about 70,000,0001. a year, a sum exceeding the existing rental of all the land and of all the houses in the kingdom. This expenditure requires unfortunately, that all the circulating medium of the country, as it consists of money and of Bank paper, taken at 17,500,000. should pass four times a year through the hands of Government, in payment for taxes. The workmen in the Savoy have been digging during some days past on the old wall of the hos pital, near the water. They have got to several subterraneous caverns or arches, which, it is sup- posed, formerly communicated with the buildings in the Strand. Several curious antiques have been recently dug up. An Agnus Dei was found on Thursday, which, perhaps, was worn round the neck of some priest or religious inmate of the palace, in the reign of Henry VII. It is of brass, with the figure of the Virgin on one side, pierced to the heart with a dagger; the reverse side bears the effigy of our Saviour, with a Latin inscription, denoting that he died for the redemption of the world. There is no date to it. A number of curi- rious persons continue to visit the ruins daily. CHILD DROPPING.— On Sunday a basket was found inside the gate, at the Foundling Hospital, neatly packed up, and covered with a piece of green baize, in which was a written card, " live lumber." On examination the contents proved to be a fine male child, apparently twelve months old, and asleep. He was dressed in a light drab coloured great coat, with silk cuffs, white cambric muslin frock, brown stuff petticoat, calico stays, linen pin- afore, and leather boots. The poor infant was taken to St. Pancras workhouse, and the parish officers have offered a reward for the apprehension of the unnatural parents. Last week, Captain Clowes, R. N. of Ramsgate, undertook for a wager to get out of bed, dress him- self, and ride a mile ( with eleven quadrangular turnings) in live minutes, which he performed in fifty- three seconds less than the given time, making it four minutes and seven seconds. Bets were at starting one hundred guineas to ten against the performance. During the late war, an Irish revenue officer re- ceived instructions from the Government, to be very particular in stating every occurrence which should take place on his station, and accordingly, in pursuance of the order, he made the following return:— " Monday, Oct 3— Two o'clock, P. M. " Saw two very large ships, out of sight, and three more a little further off— they were in full sail, and seemed to be steering N. N. E. " Mem — They must have been either American frigate or Dutch fishing smacks." On Monday week, a large flock of sheep, feeding in a meadow near Stoke Bridge, in Wiltshire, were all drowned by the sudden rise of the river Exe, the stream of which rushed down, and completely inundated the adjacent lands. There is now living a sheep, belonging to John Hutton, Glendeven, parish of Ewes, in the county of Dumfries, which had one lamb in 1812. ten months old, two lambs in 1813, and three lambs in 1814; and, what is still more extraordinary, the same sheep produced five lambs in the present year, viz. three on the 2d of April, and two more on the 21st of October. Some time ago there was an attempt made on the life of Mr. Beard, of Forty- Hill, Enfield, by shoot- ing at him with a spring gun, which was placed on the lawn before the hall door, and fixed so as to shoot the first person who opened the door in the morning, Mr. Beard being generally the first who came out at that door every morning. There has now been a second attempt made to effect the same horrible purpose. Mr. Beard slept alone, in a press bedstead, in a small room inside the parlour on the ground- floor, the window of which looked into the garden, and was about four feet above the level of the ground. He usually burnt a rush- light in his room, so that through the crevice of the shutters the bed could with ease be seen. Between one and two o'clock on the morning of Monday se'nnight, as he lay asleep, some villain fired two shots through the window, which, from the size of ( he bullets, are supposed to be fired out of a musket.— This diabolical attempt Mr. Beard had also the good fortune to escape, the balls psssed through one of the doors of the bedstead, through the wainscot on the opposite side, and rested in the brick- wall, where they were flattened, and must have passed within about six inches of his body as he lay in bed. The better to effect his purpose, the villain placed a large garden- pot under his feet, in order to take a surer aim ; but the pot breaking, the noise it made alarmed a servant, who called out, " Who's there?" and immediately the two shots were fired one alter another. CORONER'S INQUEST.— On Saturday evening an inquisition. was taken before Hugh Lewis, Esq. at the house of Thomas Street, the sign of the King's Head, situate near the Waterworks Bridge, in the parish of St. George, Hanover- square, on view of the body of Frederick Henry Weeden, a clerk in the York Depot Office, who was missing from his office in the early part of the week, with a considerable sum of money belonging to the establishment to which he was attached, which caused considerable alarm, he being a young man only twenty years of age, and highly respected.—• Verdict— Found drowned; but how he came into the water there was no evidence before the Jury to prove, but they were of opinion that he fell acci- dentally off the bridge into the water. ATTEMPTED SUICIDE.— Saturday morning Mary Tims, servant in the house of Mr. Wilson, in Cas- tle- street, Leicester- square, attempted to put a period to her existence, by hanging herself in her bed- room. She was in a state of insensibility when cut down, but by medical assistance, anima- tion was fortunately restored. She assigned as the cause of the rash act disappointment in a love affair. MURDERS IN FRANCE.— The Court of Assize of the department of Cher has condemned to death one Etienne Bry, for a triple murder. The follow- ing is an account of the circumstances:— Bry had been the servant of one Bureau, a farmer, living in the commune of Mery- Les- Bois, and was acquainted with his having in his possession a sum of money of about 2,000 francs. For a long time he was observed lurking about the neighbourhood of the farmer with a gun in his hand, under the pretence of shooting. On Sunday morning, the9th of May last, he went up to the house, but frightened on hearing the voice of a stranger, and dared not enter; but afterwards learning of a shep- herd whom he met in the fields, that the farmers two daughters were left at home alone, he returned to the house, where he met a man named Bradu. This was a witness whom he wished to get rid of; he therefore proposed a party at shooting, which was accepted. Bradu took one of the farmer's guns, and they set out together. Bry let his companion walk on before him, and when they got behind soma trees, shot him through the head. He then re- turned to the house, where he found the two little girls, the eldest aged fifteen the other only six; he presented his gun to the bosom of the eldest, and shot her through the heart; the young one attempt- ing to escape, he dashed out her brains with a blow of an hatchet, and then with the same hatchet broke open the coffer containing the farmer's money. Being now master of the treasure so ar- dently coveted, he fled. As soon as the crime was discovered, the toscin sounded, and all the inha- bitants assisted the Magistrates in searching for the assassin. Bry was soon arrested and brought to justice; the proofs against him were too numerous and manifest. - The wretch underwent his trial, and heard sentence pronounced with carelessness and unconcern. A young man at Lyon has been arrested for the commission of a most atrocious crime. His aunt had received him into her house like a second mo- ther, and treated him with the most affectionate kindness; but this ungrateful monster murdered his benefactress with repeated blows of a mallet.—• What renders his crime still more horrid is, his effrontery in going to the Commissary of Police, begging permission that his aunt's door might be broken open, as he had not seen her for many days. No doubt this monster will undergo the punish- ment inflicted for parricide. BARINTREE : :. I \<; t) o\ ... ' t- vNTWOO D>.... BERES BERGHOLT... ...
