A Flanders Mail arrived at a late hour on Tuesday night.— The following are extracts from the Papers:— " Brussels, Jan. 2— Notwithstanding the mea- sures which have been taken on our frontiers to prevent the exportation of corn to France, we are informed that cupidity daily finds means to elude I hem. It would be desirable that a cor- don of troops should reinforce the line of Cus- tom- house officers, particularly towards the iron- tiers of Hainault, lo secure the strict execution of the impositions adopted by the Government oil that subject. It is said that llie King will not go to Luxem- burg, in which there is a Prussian garrison, but that he will stop at Alton, a little town 1 leagues distant from it. His Majesty's journey to that province is absolutely relative to the unhappy slate of that country, in respect of subsistence. " In the Sitting of the two Chambers on the Bd, the Law relative to the Rights of Authors was passed unanimously, without a debate. " A discussion was then commenced upon the Project of the Law relative to Patents for new inventions. " Baron Lewis disapproved of Patents, as be- ing apt to degenerate info exclusive privileges, rind would prefer that Government should give suitable rewards for discoveries of public utility. " M. Gondebien was of the same opinion. " M. Reyphens observed, that more efficacious means might, perhaps, be found for the encou- ragement ol manufactures : but he thought thai the works for which patents were granted, being the products of genius, ought to be placed in the same rank as the rights of authors., which hail ju> t been guaranteed by the adoption of the law on the subject. " The law was, after some further debate, put to I he vole, and passed by a majority of G( i votes to 2." Wednesday morning, were received Jamaica Papers to the 9th November inclusive. They contain the proceedings of the Legislature of Jamaica, the Session of which was opened on the 29 th of October. The Governor, noticed the insurrection at Barbadoes, and recommended both Houses to consider, whether some further legislative regulation might not be necessary to promote the moral and religious instruction of the Negroes, and improve their general comfort. Both Houses, in their Addresses, state it to. be their intention to attend to his Grace's re- commendation; but impute the insurrection in Barbadoes to the fatal delusion that their eman- cipation had been intended ; a delusion spread by the practices of certain associations in the mother country. On the 1st of November a Message was sent by the Governor, recommending lhe propriety of passing a bill similar in its principle to the Register Bill. To this the House of Assembly came to a resolution, that they will adopt such measures as may appear best calculated lo en- force a strict and faithful observance of the Abo- lition Laws. Extract of a Letter from Montreal. " On politics 1 have but little to say, not hav- ing much time to attend thereto.— You will, no doubt, have seen in the Public Papers the serious disturbances which have occurred at the Red River, between the Earl of Selkirk and the North- West Company. His Lordship on his entry into Lake Superior, heard of the destruction of his Colony for the second time, and of the massacre of Governor Semple and 21 of his Colonists; lie immediately proceeded to Fort William, the N. W. Co's depot on that Lake, and by virtue of his Commission of Justice of the Peace for Upper Canada, issued warrants to apprehend Wm. M'Gillivray and seven other partners of that Company, took them prisoners, and sent them down under escort, accused of treason, murder, ii. nl robbery; on their arrival here they were admitted to bail, and they have returned to that country with about 100 Indians and Canadians, for the purpose, it is believed, of dispossessing his Lordship of Fort William, which he had kept., with their furs and other property to the amount of from 50 to 70,000/. We may therefore soon hear of more blood being shed, and God only Knows What such doings may lead to, or where they may end. Messrs. Cottman and Fletcher are appointed Commissioners to investigate the business, and are expected here to- morrow on their way to Fort William, but the season is too far advanced for them to reach that place this year." Extract of a letter from Paris, dated January 1. —" Private intelligence from Vienna announces, that the Austrian Government is makiug active researches to discover the principal agents of the late plan to rescue the young Napoleon, aud that many individuals are closely confined Wilder suspicion of being concerned in this affair. It is reported tiiat. the King of Prussia will immediately realize his intention of passing iu review the Prussian and Russian corps d'armee. These latter troops fall under his inspection as first Colonel of the Imperial guard. His Ma- jesty ( Louis XVIII.) appears in ;> n entire state of convalescence. His gracious reception of the Duke of Wellington, yesterday, was remarked by the whole Court. He extended bis hand to his Grace, his countenance became enlivene , and he conversed with his Excellency for some time. THE CONGO EXPEDITION. The detailed accounts of the Expedition to explore the River Congo, or Zaire, have reached the Admiralty. Melancholy as the result has been, from the great mortality of the Officers and men, owing to excessive fatigue, rather than to the effects of climate, the Journals of Captain Tuckey and the Gentlemen in the scientific de- partments arc, we understand, highly interesting and satisfactory, as far as they go ; and we be- lieve they extend considerably beyond the first Rapids or Cataract. It would seem, indeed, from the extract of a letter from the Surgeon of the Congo, inserted below, that the mortality was entirely owing to the land journey beyond these rapids, and that Capt. Tuckey died of complete exhaustion, after leaving the river, and not from fever. The climate, we understand, was remarkably fine; scarcely a shower of rain, or any humidity in the atmosphere, and the sun seldom shining out but for a few hours iu the middle of the day; Fahrenheit's thermometer seldom exceeding 7<> degrees by day, and never descending below GO degrees at night— such a climate, in fact, as one would wish to live in; but an anxious zeal and over- eagerness to ac- complish the objects of the expedition, and to act) tiire all the information that could possibly be obtained, seem to have actuated every one, from the lamented Commander to the common seaman and private marine, and led diem to at- tempt more than the human constitution was able to bear. The total number of deaths amounts to 18, of which 14 were on the land expedition. They consist of— Captain TUCKEY, Commander of the Expedition. Lieut. HAWKEY, Lieutenant of the Congo. Mr. Professor SMITH, Botanist. Mr. TUDOR, Comparative Anatomist. Mr. CRANCH, Collector of objects of Natural History. Mr. GALWEY, a friend of Capt. TUCKEY, who volun- teered from pure love of sciencc. Mr. EYRE, the purser. The names of the remainder have not been returned. / The Dorothy transport that accompanied the Congo into the River lost but one mail, and he fell overboard and was drowned. Extract of a Letter from Mr. Mackerrow, Surgeon of the Congo. " Of the eighteen who died in the river, fourteen had been on shore, marching for some time, and were far advanced before reaching the ship. " Professor Smith, who saw many of them when taken ill, gave to some a dose of calomel, but to others nothing had been administered. " The fever appeared in some degree contagious, as all the attendants upon tin: sick were attacked, and be- fore we left the liver, it pervaded nearly the whole crew, also some of the transport's; but as for myself, although constantly among them, I did not feel the slightest indisposition until we left the coast, when I Was attacked; however, I considered mental anxiety and disturbed rest as the sole causes. " Captain TUCKEY had been afflicted many years with chronic hepatitis, and on returning from travelling fire weeks on shore, he was so excessively reduced, that all attempts to restore the energy of his system proved ineffectual. " Mr. TUDOR was in the last stage of fever before X saw him, as were Messrs. CRANCII and GALWEY. " Professor SMITH died in two days alter he came under my care, during which time he refused every ( lung, - whether as nutriment or medicine. " Lieut. HAWKEY was taken ill after leaving the river, and died on the fourth day : his case was rather singnlar,— symptoms were, irritability of stomach, with extreme languor aud debility, but he had neither pain nor fever. " Mr. EYE had a violent fever, and on the third day breathed iiis last: before death a yellow suffusion had taken place, with vomiting of . matter resembling coffee ground." Letters from Paris mention, that the Duke of Wellington appeared at the Tuilleries on the Ist instant, with a most splendid equipage.. His Grace's Staff are in Paris, the Russian and Prussian Staffs are both expected, and it has occasioned some speculation at Paris to find out the object and cause for this warlike assem- blage. Extract of a letter from Madrid :—" Our Am- bassador, Sir Henry Wellesley, arrived here from England on the 9th : his reception by the King was highly flattering, and upon his way to the palace he was greeted and cheered by the populace with repeated acclamations." The English at Rome. - Rome, Dec 14.— Mr. Taylor, the English Charge d'Affaires, has within these few days presented to tile Pope, the Lords Jersey, Cowper, Denbigh, and King, Peers of England ; Messrs. Brougham, Vernon and Trefusis, Members of the House of Com- mons ; several Professors of the University ol Oxford ; Colonel Beckford, & c. Canova.— The Pope had attached to the title of Marquis of Ischia, which he conferred on the Sculptor Canova, an annual pension of 3000 Roman crowns.— This celebrated artist has dis- posed of his revenue in the following manner: — First, a. fixed donation to the Roman Academy of Archeology of COO crowns. Second, 1070 crowns lo found annual prizes, and a triennial prize for painting, sculpture, and architecture, which the young artists of Rome and the Roman States only are competent to obtain. Third, lOO crowns lothe Academy of Saint Lue. Fourth, 120 crowns to the Academy of the Lynx. And fifth, 1010 crowns to relieve poor, old, and in firm artists residing in Rome. Extract of a letter from St. Bernard, dated Dec. 23.—" it is with great pain 1 have to state to you, that on the 18th a dreadful avalanch bu- ried two domestics of this hospital, and four men of the village of St. Peter, without its being pos sible to relieve them. Four of them left the con- vent to carry letters; the two others had gone from the village to meet them, and all have dis- appeared. Not hearing any thing of these un- fortunate men, and anxious about their fate, we all left the convent in a body. Night overtook us in the hollows of the mountain, and we had great difficulty in rejoining one another. The weather was so dreadful that we crossed each other without perceiving it. After various vain researches, we at last discovered three dead bodies buried uuder the snow, to the depth of seven feet. To add to our misfortunes, all our dogs have been buried in the snow except one. The? e faithful creatures were long the hope of the traveller, and their race is now nearly ex- tinct. For this week past the snow has accu- mulated in immense masses, some of which are precipitated down to the lake, GREAT FLOODS. During the last week the. water has been daily over- spreading the country, said is now so high, that the roads in many places are impassable for foot passen- gers. More, than half the houses in Eton are shut op, and the inhabitants are confined to ( he upper stories, and provisions, & c. are furnished to them at their win- dows ; all the cattle are driven awav. The service a! Eton college is discontinued in consequence ; anil should the water rise another foot, the lower end of Ihe town will be in the same state a.- it was the latter end of January, 180!), when all persons obliged to be Out on business were conveyed through the streets in boats. Fortunately, the bovs at Eton college are away with their friends for the Christmas holidays, which will not terminate till Wednesday the 2: i< l instant, or probably some, accident would have happened, as they generally amuse themselves in riding about the iieids in wash tubs.— Windsor Paper. Carlisle, Jan. - 1.— On Saturday night last we were visited by a violent hurricane. The t ain descended in torrents the greater part of the day, and the storm in- creased iu fury soon after dark, in such a degree, that the slates of several houses were literally ripped up, and others partially injured ; many chimnies and parts of el'imnies were also blown down, so that persons walking the streets at the time were in serious danger of losing their lives. The violence of the storm abated about half- past nine o'clock. Before the rain began there was muvh snow on the mountains, the melting of which, assisted by the heavy rains, caused the Eden and Caldew to rise very rapidly, and overflow their banks. The whole of the low grounds around the Eden, from Staintonholnie to Warwick bridge, a track of several miles, were laid under water; of course, by such a flood, much damage has been sustained. At Warwick, a fi< Id of turnips were rooted up and carried away. At Butcherby, a field of wheat., lately sown, met with a similar fate. Mr. Kennedy, of Crosby, lost eleven sheep ; and Mr. Topping, of Wheel barrow- hall, ten, the whole of which were drowned. The water was very high at Rickergate, and, as usual, entered many houses; in some it reached to the fire- grates in the lower apartments ; the cellars were filled. Some, of the inhabitants of Caldewgate were in a similar predi- cament ; and the watt's- threw down a earden- wall in Dentonholme, belonging to Peter Farley, which was lately rebuilt, having been demolished by the great flood about this time last year. The damage done to Mr. Farley's garden is very considerable. A wall be- longing to Robert Myers ( near Messrs. Batty's hat manufactory) shared the same fate. The new embank- ment between the Eden and cattle- markets sustained but very trifling damage. Stainton- bank, broken down last year, and since repaired, again gave way on Satur- day night, in three places, in consequence of which the water rushed in, and a field of wheat was carried off. Langholm, Dec. SO.— Much alarm was excited here on Saturday night last, by the rapid rising of the river Esk, owing to the sudden thaw of snow. The banks, which had been its boundary for ,109 years past, were overflowed, and the deluge swept away great quan- tities of potatoes, turnips, Ac. which had been piled up in fields adjoining the river, in the districts of Eskdale and Eskdaletnui. At Langholm, where the Esk and Wanchope join, many of the inhabitants were obliged to escape by back- doors, windows, & c.; and at Melt, town, about a quarter of a mile further up, they were likewise obliged to desert their houses. The inundation swept away a number of small bridges, aud amongst others a handsome wooden one, lately thrown across Ihe Esk at Broomholm, by George Maxwell, Esq. of that place. We are happy to add, no lives were lost. The almost incessant rains which have fallen of late have produced such heavy floods, that the public, high- ways in many places are covered with water to a dan- gerous height. On the turnpike- road, a little on the other side of Keymer, the. Dart stage- coach, on its way- hither ( where it arrives about ten o'clock at night), on Monday was placed in some peril, as the water, it is said, passed under the doors over the floor of the car- riage. The coachman prudently stopped until a man and horse were sent to his assistance, by means of which lie was extricated from his difficulty, without suffering any injury. A few days since, when one of the keepers of Hyde- park was attending to the sluices at the Serpentine river, he discovered that they were not sufficient to carry off the water, and it rose so high, and the wind was so powerful at the time, that the greatest appre henstons were entertained that the wall at the end nearest to Piccadilly would blow up. Ilad that taken place, the consequences would have been dreadful, as the body of water would probably have carried away several houses in Knightsbridge, and all before it, till it got to the Thames. To avoid such a calamity and devastation, two breaches were cut in the embankment on the side near Knightsbridge, between the. end and the Life- Guards Barracks, and the water has been run- ning in torrents through them. It has washed away the principal part of the foot- path to the bridge, and, instead of a path, it has now the appearance of a ditch with a strong torrent running through it : the water moves with so much violence that numbers of the fish are killed, and On Tuesday they were picked up at the sides of the shore upon which they were thrown. A temporary wooden bridge was making on Tuesday near the, end of the Serpentine, or it would have been impassable. Shipwreck on the Welsh Coast.— The follow- ing tire some further particulars of the melan- choly shipwrecks on the Pembrey Sands, on the night of the 23d nit. :— There were four vessels lost on that tempestuous night, viz. the sloop Mary and Robert, of Plymouth ; a sketch, called the Flying Fish; a brig, name unknown; and ihe sloop Elizabeth and Phillis, Teague, master, from Penzance to Newport, for iron. The whole of" tiie ciews perished, except Captain Teague, who remained on his ship's side several hours nearly exhausted, and benumbed with cold, when he was happily discovered by a Llanelly pilot boat, which put off aud released him from his dreadful situation. Same night, the bri Chance, Bnrger, Master, of and from Waterford, bound to Bristol, with butter and sundries, was totally lost on Croyde Sands, Barnstaple Bay ; crew saved. CURIOUS OCCURRENCE — As two young men were going bv Ditton- marsh, a few evenings since, one stopped to speak to a person pas- sing ; but on coming up with his companion, he was surprised to find him lying senseless in the road ; he conveyed him to a neighbouring public- house, aud when recovered he stated that he had received a violent blow on ihe back part of his head, but he did not know from whom it came. On examining the spot, it appeared that some geese were returning home, and in their flight one of them had struck him with his beak, which perforated his hat, and severely wounded him. The goose was found dead close to the spot. A Coach of New Construction.— Considerable curiosity has been excited in this place, during the last week, by the appearance of a patent coach, we understand, built at Sheffield ; it has somewhat the appearance of a boat, the outside work being entirely of beat iron; the luggage is stored, as it were, in the hold-, the outside passengers sit most comfortably in the first half of the vehicle, greatly sheltered from the wea- ther, with convenient benches : the inside pas- sengers occupy, behind them, a complete and very compact four inside coach. The wheels are so closely and aptly fixed, and the luggage so tightly stored in the very heart of the car- riage, as to render an overthrow very impro- bable. As far as one can judge from appear- ances, the invention merits general adoption.— ( Leeds Intelligencer.) ACCIDENTS, OFFENCES, & e. On Wednesday, about 12 o'clock, the tide running strongly downward, a waterman impru- le: itly attempted to pass under one. of the arches ol' London- bridge, when his boat upset, and pre- cipitated the owner into the water. He rose three times at intervals; but no boat being at hand, the unfortunate man sunk to rise no more. A very Audacious Robbery.— On Wednesday evening about five o'clock, at the house of Mr. Donne, chronometer- maker, King- street Blooms- bury, as they were about to finish shutting up the shop windows, a ruffian dashed his hand through a pane of glass, and took from thence a valuable silver chronometer with which he got clear off. The maker's name and the number is on the dial plate. Robbery of Lavender, the Officer.— Wednes- day evening, Lavender and his wife were from their residence, in Long- acre, leaving a servant and their children; soon after six o'clock a man respectably dressed, with his great coat closely buttoned up and his head powdered, called and inquired for Lavender, appearing in great haste, and expressed great disappointment at the Officer being from home, saying, he wanted him very particularly to go to Chelsea to take a man; he must therefore leave a note, and desired the servant to give him a sheet of paper; she replied she had not got any. He desired , her to go aud purchase or borrow some of the other lodgers, which the girl very prudently declined doing, He then took a piece of paper and pretended to write a note, part of the contents was, Mr. Johnson would meet Lavender on the following morning, the rest was a mere scribble, and unintelligible. The inpostor then said he had a coach waiting, and as he had only a Bank note, asked her to let him have a few shillings, and he would pay. her again in the morning; this she refused, she however incautiously let him have a good umbrella, saying he thought it would rain before he got home, after he had discharged the coach, and he would bring it with him in the morning. After he was gone it was ascertained that, although the girl and the children had never left the room, he had con- trived to carry off two silver tea- spoons and two silver salt spoons. On the officer's return home, and being informed of w hat had happen- ed, he had no doubt of its having been one of his old acquaintances, who had taken advantage of knowing he was from home. Curious Robbery.— A few evenings since a most audacious robbery was committed at a house iu Sackville- st reel, Piccadilly, under the following circumstances:— On Wednesday evening, the 1st instant, about seven o'clock, a man knocked at the door with a letter directed to the lady of the house, which the servant girl carried up to her mistress, who, together with several friends, were at dinner. On the letter being opened, its contents were found to be the following, which is a copy:—" My name is Charles Turpin; I am come for your three togs ( flash for great coats) and your two celps ( hats). I wish you a happy new year. No more at present from your well- wisher, Chas. Turpin, the grandson of Old Dick Turpin."— The lady being quite at a loss as to the meaning of the words togs and celps, the note was handed round the table to several mili- tary officers who were of the party, none of w bom could form an idea of their meaning. At length one of them determined on going down stairs, to ask the man who had brought it, and was supposed to be waiting iu the hall, for an explanation, when he found the fellow had decamped, taking with him for the answer, four military great coats, which had been left hanging up in the hall. Shortly afterwards the gentleman went to Marl- borough- street Office, to give information of the robbery; and upon being interrogated by some of the officers as to the manner in which it was committed, the note was produced, which they said had been brought to the house by the fel low who was supposed to have stolen the coats; when to their utter astonishment they were in- formed that the words togs and celps, were their great coats and hats that the person came for, which had been written in the flash way, for the purpose of taking up the person's attention that it was addressed to, whilst the fellow who brought it stripped the hall of what was in it. Servants, therefore, cannot Ue too careful in future in guarding against, strange persons who may come at night with letters, & c. A Highwayman.- - On the 20th ult. as Mr. Rayer, of Culsdean, and Mr. W. Smith, of Ford, Gloucestei shire were returning frotn Stow- in- the- wold market, they were overtaken by a genteel man, well mounted, who presented a pistol at Mr. Rayer's head, and demanded his money ; observing, that he had been an officer in the army— had fought at Waterloo, but was driven to this desperate- measure by distress ; having seen death in many shapes, was careless of the consequences, Mr. H. gave him all the notes he had about him. The villain, however, insisted that he must have some silver, aud seiz- ing Mr. It's purse, took from it a few shillings only. He then made an attempt to seize Mr, Smith's bridle ; but he escaped by setting spurs to his horse. The highwayman, returning to Mr Rayer, asked his address, alleging, that should fortune smile on him, he should proba- bly return him his money. Escape, from Gaol— Early on Sunday morning, the 29th ult. four of tl e prisoners confined in Hull gaol for trial upon charges of felony, effected their escape from the gaol, by cutting through the iron fastenings of the doors of their two cells, with saw*, & c.; after which, having obtained a free passage to the day- room, they cut away a remarkably thick iron bar in one of the windows of that room, and tearing out the lower part and the stone- work together, obtained an opening sufficiently large to allow their passage through. They then proceeded to let themselves down from the window by means of their blankets fastened together, and tied at the top to the upper part of the bars ; and having descended to the roof ofa small building under the window, at the back part of the gaol, got down into tin garden, scaled the outer wall, and have not since bean heard of. Each prisoner had an iron on his right leg. The night being remarkably stormy, was greatly in favour of the above ope- rations, so that not the smallest alarm was given, and the prisoners w ere not missed until day- liglu AH active search is making alter them. EXECUTIONS. Tuesday morning J. Pirie and J. Norburgh, < for feloniously conspiring to carry off the Mary Ann, a private India ship, the property of John Primer, value 300,000/. on her voyage from India, also D. Bruce and W. Hastings, for feloniously and piratically, in conjunction with others, carrying off the ship Roebuck on the coast of Africa, the four unfortunate criminals who were tried the last Admiralty* Sessious, were taken from Newgate, escorted by the City Police and other Officers, to Execution Dock," where they arrived at tell o'clock, and shortly after suffered the sentence of the law. During the whole of the awful procession they appeared perfectly resigned to their fates. The first mentioned of these wretched men had been 28 years in the King's service, and had the rank of Lieutenant. He was cashiered in consequence of some impropriety on the coast of Africa ; and falling into disgrace and poverty, came ultimately to this ignominious death.—- Norburgh was by birth a Swede, the Consul of which nation was with the Sheriffs in his cell on Monday night. Previous to his execution he and Pirie shook hands' and embraced. The whole four, to the last, denied the crime for which they suffered, but admitted that tin r fotmer actions hadmerited their fate. Hastings was the most impenitent. They were accom- panied in the cart from Newgate, by a person of the name of Simpson, who, we understand, is is the habit of administering spiritual consolation to criminals in their unhappv situation. He. read prayers and sung hymns duiing their ap- proach to the place of execution. Pirie was a very fine looking man, and met his fate, as his companions also did, with becoming resignation and fortitude. As the execution was not made public, the concourse of people was not so numerous as it would otherwise have been. Mansion- House. — Preston, the Ex- Secretary to the Spa- fields Committee applied to the Lord Mayor for permission to see " his friend, Watson, senior, at present in Newgate. The Lord Mayor said, that Mr, Newman, the Keeper, at whose discretion visitor* are admitied would, he had no doubt, second his . views in this respect— at all events lie would not restrain him. Watson, Senior.— In consequence of the ap- plication of this individual to the Lord Mayor, that he might not be heavily ironed, his Lordship went himself to Newgate, where he saw him placed, in a select and comfortable apartment, directed that his irons should be the lightest, possible under the circumstances of the offence for which he had been committed. Marlborough- street. — Murder in St. Giles's. — On Tuesday last Patrick Downes, the Coffee- house keeper, and another, were brought up for final examination before Sir William Parsons, Knigiit, upon & charge of murdering Edward Stanton, on the morning ol the 29th December, at Bastall's coffee- shop, in George- street, late Dvot- street, St. Giles's. The only additional witness was Mary Lee, who said that she was in the coffee- shop on the morning of the 29th of December, and saw the deceased enter the house with a girl whom he had met in George- street : she had enticed him into the house. The girl was acquainted with the gang of thieves who frequented ti e coffee- house, and she inveighled him iu that they might rob him. She saw the prisoner Downes hold the deceased across a table, while others were endeavouring to rifle his pockets. The deceased forced himself from them : they pursued and pushed him into a chair, which broke and let him fall to the. ground, and they threw themselves upon him : he struggled very much, but she could not hear him groan, for they made a great noise to pre- vent it. The Magistrate said, that he should discharge Bastall and Parker, upon their entering into re- cognizances to appear to give evidence against the prisoner Downes at the ensuing Old Bailey Sessions. The parties were bound over to prosecute. Downes was ft. lly committed for trial, and the other two, after heiiv.- admonished with regard lo their future conduct, were discharged. Another advance in the price of Porter.— On Tuesday the London brewers sent their broad coopers round to the different publicans with a notice, that an additional charge of Os. per barrel would be immediately made upon porter. This has caused an advance of one halfpenny in each pot to the consumer. A tradesman in London lately received from Jamaica 4( 10 ounces of In surge nt dollars in pay- ment for an adventure. The Bank refused to receive them as standard money ; but when car- ried to an essayer they were found to be so pure, and so much divested of alloy, that they weic purchased as 420 ounces of standard silver. Miss Mortimer, who appeared with great eclat in the musical circles of this country a year ago, died a few months ago nt Lisle.

Miss Radford, who was some time sincc tried at Exeter, and sentenced to be transported lo New South Wales, for perjury, has been married there to a youug Officer of good family and expectations, who, by the Governor's per- mission, is become a resident with his Lady at Paramatta. Distressing Case.— Wednesday a female, of interesting appearance, was brought up in custody of one of the officers of Billingsgate, under the following circumstances: — He stated, tiiat on Tuesday evening she was observed in a very suspicious situation, close to the river near London Bridge, when, after some time, she plunged herself into the water; she was almost instantly rescued, and soon restored. The ac- count given by the unfortunate woman was, that one of her sons had been drowned some time since, and hearing that a similar fate bad just befallen another, she determined on sharing the the same fate herself. Some of the friends of the poor woman stated that she was deranged ; and she was, in consequence, ordered to be placed iu Bethlem Hospital, or seme sucfe asylum, liONDOX, FRIDAY, JANUARY 10, 1017.

The Law of Elections has undergone two more discussions in the Chamber of Deputies, and in the Sitting of Saturday the vote was come toon several of the articles. The first was adopted, anil a long and boisterous interruption of busi- ness ensued. Article 2d. as proposed by Mi Misters and amended bv the Commission, then underwent a rather tempestuous debate. The chief point at issue was, whether the title to be an Election should rest on the payment of 300 francs in direct taxes as declared by Art. 40. of the Charter, or that the right should as now proposed by Ministers, he extended to persons paying that amount eituer bv themselves, their wives, or children being minors. MM. Villele, Soulier, Jollivet, Benoit, insisted on the Charter, and inveighed against the innovation. The Minister of the Interior replied ; all the Amend- ments were negatived ; and the article, as it was ottered, by Ministers carried. The . other ar- ticles were postponed till Monday, and the Chamber adjourned. The rest of the news in these Journals is not of much consequence. There has been some dreadfid avalanches on Mount St. Bernard, which have, it is said, changed the fact: of this celebrated spot. A Flanders Mail arrived on Thursday night. " Corfu, Dcc. 10.— The Governor has pub lished, on his arrival, a Proclamation, in which he acquaints the inhabitants of the United Ionian Islands with the advantageous result, of his ne- gociations with the British Government. The Senate immediately paid liiin a visit. The next day his Excellency repaired to the Senate, to which he made important communications. " It is affirmed that the English troops will be augmented, and that the garrison of our city will be raised to 7,000 men. " Two Anglo- Sicilian regiments are expected 1iere. " The Austrian troops in Dalmatia have been considerably increased ; they are destined to form the cordon of health. Anglo- Ionian regiment has now nothing Ionian in it but the name. The Ionian soldiers, little capable of submitting to the European discipline, have been sent back to their homes, " Brussels, Jan. 5.— A courier dispatched by the Duke of Wellington to the head quarters at Cambray, arrived there on the 2d, with instruc- tions relative to the present circumstances. It is said that his Grace will return to Cambray in a few duys.

PRINCESS CHARLOTTE'S BIRTH- DAY, CELEBRATION AT THE PAVILION. Brighton, Jan. 8i— Yesterday the, bells rang merrily, announcing the birth- day and the com- pletion of the 2lst year of her Royal Highness I he Princess Charlotte. The dinner party, in addition to their Royal Highnesses the Regent and the Duke of Clarence, and the immediate suite of Noblemen and State Officers resident at the Palace, included — Lord and Lady Bathurst, Lord ami Lady Castlereagh, the Austrian Ambassador, Prince Esterhazy, Lord St. Helen's, Lord Clive, the Earl of Abergavenny, Lord James Murray, Baron Wimpfen, Sir G. Wood, & c.— Covers were laid for 36, and not a seat was vacant. At nine o'clock the company invited began to assemble for the Ball, & c. and before half past uine there were present nearly three hundred persons of rank and fashionable distinction. The invitation tickets, expressed " Out of Mourning;" the Court sables, consequently, were laid aside. The dresses of the Ladies were- peculiarv elegant, many of them splendid, dia- monds, rubies, and pearls being iyt sparkling profusion. The Prince Regent had issued a command, | that such articles only as were the immediate manufacture of this country should be worn on this occasion, and this command appeared to be very scrupulously attended to: the Ladies were British from top to toe. The new room in the North site of the Palace, formerly distinguished as Grove House, 80 feet in length, was used for dancing. Tow ards ten o'clock the Ball was opened by the Duke of Clarence and Lady Charlotte Chol- mondeley, who led off to the inspiring air called " The Prince Regent," and about five- and- thii ty couple followed. The second dance wascalled by the Royal Duke—" I'll gang nae mair to your town:" and after the conclusion of a third dance, the diversion was continued in quadrilles and waltzes. The supper rooms were opened about one o' clock. The Prince Regent was in high health and spirits. Alter supper the company again sought the pleasures of the Ball- room; and the Duke of Clarence and a numerous party continued the dance until 4 in the morning. Thf Prince Regent withdrew soon after two. It was between five and six o'clock before the visitants had entirely left the Palace, THE REVENUE. ( From an livening Paper.)

The Parisians are still, it seems, flattering themselves with the hope that a negotiation is carrying on in England for a loan, in alleviation of the pecuniary difficulties of the French Government; but they may be as. snred that the fact is otherwise. The merchants • applied to on the occasion have certainly declined the proposal of the French Government for a loan, and that without the smallest intention of resuming the subject. Letters from Havannah, dated the 25th of last month, referring to official accounts from Vera Cruz of the 3d of the same month, communicate the intelligence, that the latter port has been opened to all friendly and allied nations for the importation of provisions. This is said, in an evening paper, to have been done by the Viceroy Apodaca, in obedience to orders from his Sove- reign. And it is further asserted, that the King of Spain, from feelings of regard for his subjects in South America, engaged in a measure, the object of which is to declare SEVERAL ports of America free for the commerce of all friendly and allied nations. From New Orleans advices were received on Thursday to the 18th of November : they state, that a great bustle prevailed there on ac- count of vessels fitting out for the Spanish Main, and Matagorda. Spanish commerce suffered exceedingly, but the depredations on that of Great Britain, in this quarter, are represented as of no account. The Americans also suffered little. The naval force of the latter, in the Gulph, is sufficient to protect their trade. The privateering system carried on by 1 the South Americans, in conjunction with adven- turers from the United States, becomes every day more alarming to the commerce of Europe. Thursday were received in town several accounts of the depredations they have recently com- mitted on the British trade. In one instance a merchant received a protest from his Captain, stating the capture of his vessel by one of these cruisers under tire South American colours. The agent to Lloyd's writes from Corunna, under date of the 18th of December, that the master of the Portuguese vessel Amazona, which arrived at Vigo on the 12th from Baltimore, states, that at the time of his sailing there were 17 schooners arming and equipping by order and under the command of Espozy Mina. They were intended to take in warlike stores, and then proceed to the Costa Firma of South America. The agent to Lloyd's at Gibraltar writes, under date'of the 16th of December, that the Lascelles, Capt. Wells, arrived at that port from London, had been fired at by a privateer and compelled to bring to. She first showed Ame- rican colours, but afterwards Spanish. After coming on board and investigating cargo, log- book, & c. they were suffered to depart. The privateer was from Buenos Ayres, and mounted 18 long 12- pounders, with IftO men, exclusive of officers ; the crew appeared to be all Spaniards. There were two small vessels in company. THE WESTERN EXCHANGE. It is with pleasure we see, at a time when the general depression of t( ade lias almost broken the spirits of many who imagine there is an end to our commercial prosperity, that some public spirited individuals in the Metropolis step for- ward to give a stimulus to every branch of our manufactures. In addition to many laudable examples, we are gratified in seeing a new Ex- change instituted in Bond- street, on no incon- siderable scale : it will not only'aft'ord relief to its numerous trading tenants in vending their various articles at low prices for the accommo- dation of the public, but its capacious arrange- ments will embrace and contain specimens and models of the productions of our first artists and manufacturers: a space, containing several thousand feet, is thu occupied and divided into distinct shops, well stocked with useful and ornamental commodities, one of w hich will be entirely for the sale of Spitalfields silks. A lofty saloon diffuses light through the whole building ; from the area, a gallery is seen above, approaching by a light stair- case, communicating with exhibition and commission rooms, con- taining elegant furniture, bronzes, pictures, rich glass lustres, lamps, transparent lantliorns, and an infinite variety ol useful and ornamental requisites, each marked with the pr'ceson them. A depot of this kind cannot fail of being ac ceptable to purchasers, in preference to the inconvenience of laying ou- t their moae\ at other places, undertlie many unpleasant disadvantages attending them. This desirable Establishment will also be a relief to such cabinet- manufac- turers and mechanics who cannot find sale for their goods, which ( if worthy of being received), they can send in at ready money prices on com- mission, without further expi nee. The whole will form an inleresjing Exhibition and reflects credit on the enterprising genius of its projector, whose liberality in promoting the advantage of others is universally admitted. We hope he will himself meet that approbation from the public, that may ultimately reward him.

New Silver Coinage is in a very forward state — upwards of one million and a half, out ol two millions and a half of new Sixpences, Shil- lings, and Half- Crowns are completed. The issue will be on the first of February, and it will take place all over the kingdom on the same day ; thus preventing, as far as possible, the tricks of money- dealers, and other interested in- dividuals, besides obviating the great incon- veniences that might otherwise be felt by the trailing, the industrious, and the most important classes of Society. Arrangements arc tolerably well completed to effect this simultaneous issue; — Agents are named at the sundry market, post, and central towns— an immense number of packing- cases are ptepared— in truth, the whole business is in a very promising way. Antiquities.— A quantity of Anglo Saxon coins and three ingots were found by a labourer in the cleft of a rock, at Dunleary, about ten days ago. The man, who is in the employment of the Ballast- office, was removing some of the shattered pieces vf the when ke made the discovery. The present distressed shite of the Poor oie- ing la the high price of the necessary Articles of Provision, anil Con- Sumption, more than lo a wartt » f Employment. We Complain of the stagnation of commerce— of the number ot vessels ilnfreighted-- ofseamen unemployed, houseless, forlorn, subsisting on charity. From this it is natural to suppose, that freight of ships— stamen's wages— fitting out— crimpage— salt provisions, and all unto or thereunto belonging had most considerably fallen. The Shipowners, the Masters, the Mates, the Seamen, the Irish- factors in provisions. Ship- chandlers, Insu- surance Brokers— all complain that there is little to do From this it is natural to suppose, that those former reasons, which were given us when coals began to rise from the old long standing price of 36s. per chaldron, delivered into the. cellar, 110 longer exist— that the ships which had quitted the coal trade for the more pro- fitable Transport service have returned - that seamen's wages and fitting out are considerably reduced, and that freights and insurance are ninth lowered. If effects are produced by causes we must conclude that we, the public and the poor, have equal cause of complaining. If causes were adduced to prove the justice of raising coals to £ 3 from 36 shillings, those causes no longer existing, it is just to reduce them to their former standard. But in vain should we talk of justice, were pur- chasers to be found— were the wind to blow easterly— was there an appearance of ice. in the river— were the barometer even rising to the freezing point— yet e\ en all these would not avail, the high prices have con- sumed the means of purchase ; discretion has reduced the consumption bv mixing the ashes wilh coal dust, first wetting them in the coal cellar, when they cake on the fire, which one trial is sufficient to prove with- out trouble, that dreadful impediment to amelioration of our calamities; and the poor are saved from Ihe exaction, at this season, by the provident care of many parishes having laid in store sufficient for their wants at reduced prices. The ship owners may now complain of demurrage, and that of 194 ships and upwards in Monday's coal market, not one was sold, how can they expect other wise at the prices demanded, under the circumstances of the times, when the buyers or consumers have not the means to meet the prices demanded, when without that liberality, the grand characteristic of the nation, ever ready to offer aid and assistance to distress, that price would be a prohibition to thousands; and it is to lie hoped, that the associations in the parishes, those noble protectors of the poor and indigent, so suddenly thrown into want and necessity, will make such a pro vision for their parishioners every year, at due season, as will secure them from exaction, and themselves pay- ing it in the raised Poor- rates. It is madness and folly to suppose, that with the decrease of income, of labour, of employment, indi- viduals can pay the old prices. Some indeed may, till gradually reduced in their circumstances, they run like the sand through the hour glass, into the mass of po- verty, to besupportcifby others gradually approaching to the vortex by being unsupported below them; but even this must destroy the hopes of gain, as it must re- duce the consumption and demand, ami drive all to the most confined parsimony by the inability of income to contend with expenditure. We point out the consequences of the prices of bread, of meat, and of the necessaries of life being above the level of income. Some observe, it is true and others, that things will soon mend, and part passes away in silence and oblivion. Some profited by ad vice, and by association dispensed with the butcher in retail, others followed l| ie example, till meat was reduced to a moderate price; hut the baker has gradually ascended in price till two shillings a- day will solely purchase one quartern loaf, and one pound of meat: 17 Jd. for the one, and Cf-. for theother, We repeat our advice, and hope, " like the sower in the parable, though some of our sowing may fall by the way side, and be trodden down, and the fowls of theair devour if, some upon a rock, and wither away because it lacks moisture, some upon thorns and thorns spring up and choke it, still we feel hope lhat some may fall on good ground, and bear fruit an hundred fold. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear." There is a general meeting of the parishes to raise sub tcriptions to aid their poor and distressed parishioners That zeal and humanity is most highly to be praised and its success most devoutly to be wished ; relief will be afforded as long as the funds last, and we earnestly pray " that the barrel of meal shall not waste, neithe the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the Lord sendeth rain upon the earth." But when yve consider the magnitude of the under taking, of which we may form our ideas by the adver- tisements for subscription from Spitalfields, St. Luke's St. George, Hanover- square, which though one of th wealthiest parishes at the West End of the Metropolis yet declares,( bat it has more that 5,500 paupers to relieve 2,900 of whom are children, we must feel that every effort should be called into action to reduce the price of all the necessaries of life to a level with the sum given from cut of the funds, raised from benevolence. Thus it would be sound policy to secure in every parish some baker who would sell the loaf at least at tl. same price at which it ran he procured in Holborn, at I Id with tickei or without ticket, to alt * ho may apply; the same plan to be adopted with the hiueher, the potatoe dealer, the cheesemonger, the tallow- chandler, and no such can be. found who would take such contracts in the parish, let them be advenited for the Public general. We say thus much on that head to avoid giving offenc to such traders in a parish who might think they on to have the turn in their favour; but. if it be urged by them that they cannot afford it, we reply, the l'oorhav not got it; it should be given to the best bidder. It must be clear to demonstiation, that to enable the I'oor to buy the loaf at l td. or lower, when it cannot be procured nigh their home for less than 17fit. is the same thing as giving him 17 \ for lid. and so on forever tiling which can be lowered f r their purchase. There are many more ways I'. y which what is give( may be made of more value than sterling money, but here is the first thing to commence, and When the. im mouse number to be relieved in each parish, the need of renewed subscriptions, the unavoidable necessity of raising the poor- rates, to supply the < iefr.- icncyoftho. se w ho are unable to pay tlieir portion, be fairly and el sejy considered, there can he little doubt that the zealous and benevolent promoters of these subscriptions will be unwearied in their labours to bring down the pric * of purchase to the level of their gifts. As it would be folly to clear av. ay the snow from our door, while it was stiil coming down in heavy flakes, so would it be vain to expeet that our subscriptions could pievent the raising of the poor- rates, if the prii e of bread alone swallows up wha: is given. Tliel" uk must increase upon the hold, however hard we pump, if the inlet is greater than the cullet. That it is so, we read from the Report of the Committee of Kpitalfields, " lhat although the subscription has been most liberal, yet such is the extent arid character of the prevalent distress, that it is sufficient or. iy to palliate the amount of suf- fering, which, it is feared, is beyond the reach of pri- vate benevolence wholly to relieve." Is it not clear to the smallest understanding, that " if private benevolence will not wholly . relieve," that raised Poor- rates must supply the deficiency? Then will not all feel it their interest as well as duty to re- duce the price of purchase to the level of- gratuity— to reduce the Consumption of Hour by every means in their power, if only to diminish their own expences at home, and confine the magnitude of the Poor- rates? If flic purchase of Hour were diminished, the price would naturally fall— and wq coul. i mention some articles even of subsistence, for which there are no buyers, merely because substitutes have been found much cheaper Tn proportion.

American Papers were received on Saturday to the 16th ult bringing reports of the proceed- ings of Congress to the 12th ult. inclusive. In both Houses the President's Message had, as usual, been divided according to the different subject on which it touches, and the respective portions were referred to Select Committees. The Senate had resolved in favour ot admitting the new state of Indiana into the union, and ap- pointed a Committee to enquire into the expedi- ency of repealing or modifying the Act of last Session, which altered the mode of compensa- tion to Members of Congress. The House of Representatives had appointed a Committee to enquire into the expediency of amending the im- port aud Tonnage Act, so far as relates tonnage. On the 6th ult the President sent a Message to both Houses, stating that he had suspended the law authorizing paymentfor property lost during the war till Congress should more clearly de- fine the cases intended to be embraced. The returns of the votes on the election of the new President and Vice- President had not reached Washington from all the States at the date of the last accounts from that capital. The Na- tional Intelligencer, however, anticipates with confidence the election of Mr. Monroe as Pre- sident, and of Mr. D. Tompkins as Vice Presi- dent. An article from St. Louis, Nov. 2, states lhata report prevailed that. Mr. Browne and all iiis party who were employed in running the boundary line between the United States and the Osage Indians, had been hiassacred. Ano- ther rumour brought by the Cherokee interpre- ter stated, that he had an engagein'ent with the Indians, and had lost 10 or 12 men. The Go- vernor General of the Mississippi territory had made a requisition for 1200 infantry, the whole ofthe cavalry and riflemen, and a company of artillery, to be held in readiness to march at a moment's notice. This step had been taken, it was supposed, in contemplation of an immedi- ate rupture with Spain. Among the intercepted Spanish correspondence published in the Balti- more Patriot, there is a letter from Cevallos to the Spanish Ambassador at Washington, da- ted the 5th of last June, informing him that the Secretary of Finance had written to the Viceroy of New Spain to make immediate remittances to supply the Ambassador's urgent necessities, in order to prevent the cessation of his important and delicate functions. Mr. Russel had arrived at Boston with ratified copies of commercial treaties- between the United States, Sweden, and Denmark. A dreadful fire broke out in New York on the night of the 3d ult, which laid waste the whole block of buildings bounded by Bur- ling and Beekman slips on tiie north and south, aud by Water and Front- street on the east and west, also several houses on the west side " of Water- street. The lire was free and accidental. Upwards of fiflv buildings were destroyed, but no lives were lost. A number of African slaves ate said to have been carried from the Havannah to East Florida, to be smuggled into the United States. EAST INDIA INTELLIGENCE. Bombay papers reached town on Friday to the middle of September. They do not supply any new details of the operations of the Indian Chiefs against each other. The only article of a hostile nature they furnish relates to the Company's crui- sers employed to the eastward. Calcutta, Aug. 10.— On last Wednesday even- ing a Meeting of the Asiatic Society was held, at which several interesting communications were submitted to the Society. Amongst these was the Journal of Mr. Fraser's Tour to the Sources of the Sutlej and Jumna, and thence across a most difficult and interesting country to the sources of the Ganges: it long and curious document was also communicated respecting several classes of robbers and murderers, known in the South of India by the name ot Phansesgars, and in the Upper Provinces by the appellation of Thugs; the peculiarity of whose practice is the employ- ment of a noose, which they throw round the traveller whom they have fallen in with on the road, apparently by accident, and whom they thus strangle and rob: they live in a regular society, aud roam the country in gangs, under a regular Sirdar or Chief. The communication was sent by Dr. Sherwood from Madras, and was illustrated by several extracts from official reports made in this part of India. An account of the Sea snakes that made their appearance some time since in such numbers at Madras was also forwarded by D. M'Kenzie. These snakes proved to be venomous in a very hij> h degree; but the establishment of medical aid near the spot, and the ready application of can- de- luce, prevented any great loss of lives. Two short papers were also read; one on the ceremonies observed at the Coronation of the Colastri Rajah on the Malabar Coast, by Mr. Brown; and another on several ancient Coins struck by the Parthian Kings, about 250 years before Christ, and which were presented by Dr. Robinson to the Society, llis Excellency the President was present. CHATHAM FRIENDLY BANK SOCIETY. The first Annual Meeting of the Governors, Sub- scribers, and Depositors, of the Chatham Friendly Hank Society, was held at the Sun Inn, Monday, the 6th instant, at 12 o'clock, and was most respectably attended. The Rev. the Archdeacon of Rochester having taken the chair, opened the business of the ay with expressing the happiness lie felt in meeting his friends to congratulate them" bn the success of the In- stitution. Considering the pressure of the times, it could only be wondered that deposits to so large an amount had been made. The success of this and simi- lar plans, sufficiently contradicted the invidious re marks thai he- had been sorry to see in the public papers that the prospects held out by them) were fallacious and insulting to the feelings of ttie labouring classes of the present time. There could be no doubt that under more favourable circumstances, which by the blessing of Divine Providence we hoped would arrive, many more industrious and provident persons would avail themselves of the benefits of the Institution, And though he lamented that the present Secretary must retire from his office, yet, under the management of those who would succeed him, he trusted the Society would continue to flourish for this and many future years. The Rev. Alexander Browne, the Secretary, then laid before tiie Meeting, the proceedings of the year, when it appeared that the amount of sums deposited since the formation of the Institution, by 221 persons was., ^ 2997 0 0 The amount of sums withdrawn at various times was 304 2 6 Leaving* balance of 2032 17 G To the Editor of the MAIDSTONE JOURNAL, SIR, As the attention of some of my brother tow ns men may, perhaps for a moment, be attracted by the vociferation and din with which the Con- tractors for the Lottery, which draws on Tues- day next, are now tallv- hoing their desperate fortune- hunters to the leap, I will briefly pour- tray to them, through the medium of your Jour- nal, the excellent device oti a celebrated picture, which decorates the Town Hall of Berne, in Switzerland, At the head of the canvas, stands a Country Clown— under the Clown, a fat Burgess— under the Burgess, a Merchant-— under the Merchant, a Physician— under the Physician, a Confessor under the Confessor, a Lottery Contractor, distributing tickets to all above him — and under the Contractor, appears Satan himself, with a horrible clinking chain, and a label from his mouth, portentously announcing, " I carry all these with me to Hell." In their alluring hurry and scuffle to palm awaV their tickets and shares, it does not ap- pear to suit the policy of these ingenious Con tractors to let the public know, what I now in form them, that they have less of prize- money by £ 50,000. to distribute to fortunate adven- turers, than has been apportioned by any Lot- tery for many years last past. I am, Sir, A CONSTANT READER Maidstone, l3th January, 1817. ——= 3c mmm<== MAIDSTONE, Jan. 14. HOP INTELLIGENCE. South war k, Jan. 13, IB 17.— Our market continues very dull, but our prices remaiu steady. Which has been invested in the Bank of England, in the names ofthe Trustees, and which has produced a profit of Interest, that admits of the Society's allow- ing to every depositor a Bonus of 1 percent, in addition to the 4 per cent, held out by them, making a total of 5 per cent. Having laid before the meeting every point relatiye to the concerns of the Institution, the Rev, Secretary concluded with stating several very intoiesting par- ticulars highly to the satisfaction ofthe meeting. As the. Rev. A. 15. now retires from the situation the duties of which he has so ablv and zealously per- formed, the grateful Thanks of the meeting for his valuable services, were offered him from the Chair, which were acknowledged by him in a very handsome way. The Rev. Mr. Harker, in moving a vote of thanks to the Trustees, spoke very forcibly and ably in praise of the rich and great, interesting themselves in the welfare of the lower classes; of the above gratifying state- ment of the success which has attended this establish- ment, and of the most beneficial tendency of such in- stitutions, in exciting provident habits among the labouring people, and consequently in reviving the public spirit, and lightening the weight of the parochial burdens. He pointed out many other happy results of these excellent institutions, to which we regret our limits will not permit os to do justice. The Meeting was addressed severally by Sir Robert Barlow, Mr. Hope, G. White, esq. itt. and broke up after concurring most warmly arid unanimously iu re- turning their cordial thanks to the venerable Chair- man ; and how could thanks be more properly bestowed than upon one, who, to his very advanced period, has lived the Friend ot Mankind, and a Father to the poor and needy! At the close of the meeting, subscriptions were renewed for defraying. the expenses of the institution for the ensuing year. ' GUILDHALL- Imposition. — A re Ml of ven'- table aj » - pearance, whose name is Gale, was bioi.^ nt upon a charge of obtaining money from the dnvr of one of the Maidstone coaches under false pretences. The prisoner, it was stated in evidence, pretended about a month ago that he was a wealthy farmer in Kent, got ten shillings from him upon a promise that he would repay it with liberality, but forgot the obligation. At the time of this trick, the prisoner used several sen, fences from the Bible, and the complainant supposed that a sense of religion would add to his requital. The Magistrate lamented that he had it not in hU power to punish the prisoner. He, however, addressed him so impressively, as to make him shed tears, aud discharge the debt. Murder of Lieut. Johnson.— Saturday the investigation was resumed ut the Thames Police Office, and several witnesses were again examined at considerable length, after which, Mr. Harvey, under whom Hatton was em- ployed before and subsequent to the murder, produced a book, which proved that Hatton bad been employed on board the Henry Addington. which lay near Dept- ford for a time, not comprehending the week ia which the murder was committed. The prisoners were remanded till Saturday next, an which day they are to be finally examined. Hatton will be tried at the ensuing Old Bailey Ses- sions upon the charge of stealing the silk handkerchiefs out ofthe East India Docks. MARRIED.

On Sunday morning last, at his house, in Stone- s'reet, in the 83d year of his age, Sir William Bishop, Knight, senior Jmat and senior Justice of the Peace for this town. He received the honour of Knighthood on the 4th November, 1778, at Leeds Castle, where as Mayor of Maidstone ( accompanied by the Corporation), he. waited on his present Majesty, who was " then on a visit to Lord Fairfax, having the day before reviewed the troops encamped at Coxheatb, under the command of General Keppel. Saturday last, aged about 2 years, Mary, daughtet of Wm. Balton, esq. at Springfield, near tliis town. Sunday sennight, after a short illness, in tiie Vines, Rochester, T. Elliott, esq. one of the Magistrates for the Western Division of this county, aged 65. Jan. 4, at Hythe, after a lingering and painful ill- ness, b< Tiie with Christian resignation, Mrs. Bishop, Wife of Major Bishop, 64th Foot. On Saturday se'nnight, after lingering a few days, Mr. John Good, pilot, at Gravesend, a man deeply regretted. His death was occasioned by a fall he had received by the Gravesend coach upsetting. On this, occasion no blame appears to be attached to the coach- man, who has always been remarked for his steadiness.

The Physicians attending the Queen have advised I his confinement. It is said that tiie Prince Regent will return to Carlton House on the 25th, and that his Royal Highness will open the Session in person. By olHcial documents received from Ceylon, we learn with extreme pleasure that the respect able planters of that island, Dutch and others, have adopted, at the suggestion of the ChiefJus tice, Sir Alexander Johnston, some judicious re- gulations for the gradual abolition of slavery. All children born of slaves after the 12th of August last are to be considered free, but to remain in their master's house, and serve him for their board, lodging, and clothing, the males till the a< re of 14, and the females till that of 12, after which they are to be wholly emancipated. Calamity in the Welch Collieries.— At Chirk, in Denbighshire, on the 22d of last month, bv some neglect of the men employed on the Elles- mere Canal, the stop- gates, & c. was overpowered by the water', which dammed up the river Ce- ring, under the Chirk aqueduct, filled all the coal pits with water, sand, gravel, & c. tore to pieces all the machinery, as well as doing great injury to the vicinage. The Chirk workmen were absent on a Christmas festival. The loss to the proprietors is said to be immense. Horrid Attempt.— About 8 o'clock on Mon- day morning last, two bread- cakes, strongly im- pregnated with poison, were found at the bottom of the stairs of the cottage of Joseph Turner, ot Child well- alley, Colchester. A part of one w as tasted by Turner and wife, but no portion thereof swallowed, from a disagreeable sensation it oc- casioned, accompanied by grittiness. The poor man has three children, by whom the cakes were not seen, or the consequences would have been most fatal. The Quarter Sessions for the Western part of this County, commence on Thursday next; the calendar of prisoners is uncommonly heavy, there being above 80 for trial. Our Theatre closed for the Season, last evening, with the Play ofthe Hypocrite, being for the benefit of Mr. Harry ; the parts of Cantwell and Mawworm were most ably supported by Mr. Dowton and Mr. Oxberry, of the Theatre Royal, Drury- lane, and afforded much amusement to a fashionable and overflowing audience, who expressed their delight by loud plaudits. Mr. Dowton at the conclusion of the performance, came foi ward and addressed the company inhis and the Per- formers behalf, thanking them for their patronage and support, during the season, which, though short, has, we trust, been to the Proprietor a profitable one. On Wednesday last, the price of Beer and Porter, iu this town, was raised 5s. per barrel, which caused an advance of one half- penny per pot. Attempted Robberies.— Very early on Saturday morn- ing last, as pat t of the family of Sir John Shaw, Bart, were returning' from the County Ball, in this town, to their mansion at Kenward, the servant who was follow- ing the carriage on horseback, was twice shot at be- tween the Bower and Barming- heatti, by some villains concealed in the hedge, but who fortunately failed in effecting their diabolical intentions. Ou Sunday evening, about 8 o'clock, as Mr. Sutton, clocksmith, of this town, was returning home, he was suddenly fired at on the Ashford- road, between the Earl of Romney's house and Bearsted, by a person concealed in the hedge, but happily without any further mischief tlifin starting his horse into a fright and full gallop till lie arrived at the turnpike- gate. These are certainly very alarming as well as serious circum- stances, because the persons who discharged the fire- arms neither appeared in view or spoke to the persons thus assaulted, therefore scarcely any tiling short of murder could be the intention ofthe offenders^ It appears by the Half- yearly Report of the Pro vident Bank, at West Mailing, that in the space of six months from the first establishment, 7G persons have become depositors, and the various sums deposited by them amount to 50GI 3s. Od. whilst only the sum of Gl. 9s. 4| d. has yet been drawn out. A Special Meeting of the Directors ofthe proposed Canal from Canterbury to St. Nicholas Bay, at which the Governor, S. R. Lushington, esq. presided, was held at the Crown Inn, Rochester, on Tuesday last, to consider the expediency of commencing the work— when it was determined to refer the question to the Committee, continued by a resolution of the 4th Gene- ral Assembly of Proprietors on the 25th April, 1814, " for the purpose of considering any farther improve- ments in the proposed works that may be suggested," ill order that, a new estimate may be" formed of the expence under the present reduced value of laud, labour, and materials, as well as of the probable, ad- vantage to be derived therefrom ; whose report, it is proposed, afterwards to submit to the Proprietors, previously io any other proceeding. We regret to learn that much serious damage has been occasioned to Folkstone Harbour, by the violence of the late Southerly winds; one or more breaches having been made by the waves in the. pier. An appli- cation for aid, we hear, lias been made to Government, but the answer, as in all similar cases, has been, was, that while the present pressure of the public burthens continued, Ministers could not recommend any such grant of the public ajoaey to Parliament, DANGEROUS SITUATION OF THE MEANDER. The Meander, Captain Sir James Alexander Gordon, K. C. B. is arrived at Sheerness, in a sinking state, mak- ing upwards of 20 feet of water an hour, having struck upon a shoal called the Outer Garbed, lying about 18 miles to the S. E. of Orfordness for Leigh Roads on the 16th ult. but owing to thick weather, she was obliged to anchor occasionally until the 18tli. On the 19th, at 8.30. p. M. having been working to windward the whole dayt endeavouring to gain an anchorage in Yarmouth Roads, it then blowing a gale of wind, breakers were reported on the lee bow and beam ; the ship, under her fore and main- top sails, and fore sail, was attempted to be stayed, but would not come round, and in falling off she struck upon the Outer Garbed Shoal, in 24 feet water— fortunately she went over it, and was instantly anchored in 17 fathoms. In a few minutes afterwards the carpenter reported nearly six feet water in her; " and here ( says the letter of an officer belonging to her) it will lie necessary to pause for a moment, at the dangerous and awful situation ofthe ship's company— the wind blowing a gale, with a tremendous sea, the ship making upwards of twenty feet w ater an hour, and nearly twelve hours darkness before them, not a mo- ment Was to be lost, for not a hope of safety was enter, tained, save in the mercy of the Almighty, and the united exertions of every soul on board. By the zeal aud energy ofthe Captain and Officers, and the almost unparalleled exertions of the men, the ship was kept clear until fhe morning; during the night, most pro- videntially, the Great Disposer of all events had lulled the storm, and hushed the raging sea. Minute gun were fired the whole time, and every blue light in the ship was burnt, in the hope of drawing the attention of vessels near : but it was not until long after day- light on the 20th that several vessels were seen approaching, many of which were afterwards directed to stay by the Meander, in the event of its being necessary to quit her. The wind and tide being fair for Sheerness, the cable was cut, and sail made by the Officers, it not being able to remove a man from the pumps ; at thb moment the leak had increased, but two sails, which had been fitted with thrums, were then dropped ovei the Bows, and had a wonderful effect in checking tin leaks. At noon, on the ship's arrival within signal distance of Sheerness, her distressed state was made known, and the greatest and most promp assistance was immediately procured by the Captains of the dif- ferent shin-, the Hon. Commissioner Boyle, with the officers and men under their respective commands ; but it was not until the 22d, with all the skill and exertions employed, that the ship was safely secured in dock. On examination it wf'as ascertained, she had carried away the whole of her ore- foot, about ten feet of her larboard garbed streak, and a great part of her false and main keels ; and while these alarming and serious defects evidently shew what must have been the extraordinary exeition at the pumps for upwards of 20 hours before any personal assistance could be afforded, they also most satisfactorily prove what gracious gooJtiess and mercy mu- t have been vouch, saf'ed to tlieni by that Almighty Being whose arm alone can save the wanderers on the trackless deep. Sir J. A. Gordon is perhaps considered ( with all deference to others) one ofthe very best Officers inhis Majesty's Navy, and beats most honourable testimonies of having distinguished himself upon many occasions in the ser- vice of bis country. The officers of the Meander speak of him in terms ofthe highest respect and most affec- tionate regard ; his firmness and zeal gave animation to all around hi in in the midst of this awful time, in which not a murmur was heard, nor the slightest dis- position shewn towaids intoxication. Such condvictas this will secure the ship's company a lasting honour. It appears the pilot of the ship is a clever and deserving man, and not the slightest blame whatsoever is to be attached to him. The Meander is ordered by the Ad- miralty to be fitted with all possible dispatch, and the people of Sheerness Dock- yard are directed to earn as much money as they can in repairing her.
