MADAM, IT appears requisite your invaluable American Soothing Syrup should be universally known, that its usefulness might be more generally extended. My little girl had been extremely ill a long time— She had fits, and her bowels so much affected that her life was despaired of— Doctors and Medicine were of no avail, we were told that her teeth were the only cause of her affliction. A Friend calling upon us who had seen the happy effect of the Syrup, prevailed npOn us to try it. She brought us a bo'ttle and rubbed the Child's gums, and in a few minutes a most astonishing alteration took place, the fits left her, and she recovered as fast as possible— it requiring only 1 Bottle and half to perfect the cure. Our soi row s were thus in a few days turned into joy. Madam, Your Obliged Servants, Nor. 27Ih, 1816. J. & S. MATIN, No. 2, New John- street, Aston Road, Birmingham.

I t.— His Royal Highness the Prince Regent, in lite name and on the behalf. of his Majesty, taking into consideration the highly distinguished ser- vices rendered by Sir David Ochterlony, Bart. a Major- general in the Army, in the East Indies, and Knight Grand Crosoof the most Honourable Military Order of the Math, on divers important occasions dnringa period of J'J years, particularly in the course oY those arduous • Operations of the Mahratta war, which conduced to the decisive victory gained by the British forces under the Command of the late General Viscount Lake, in the me- morable conflict before Delhi, on the 11th Sept. 1803, to the consequent surrender of that capital, and to the restoration of his Majesty Shah Alum to the throne of his ancestors; as also the proofs of wisdom and military talent afforded by this Officer during the subsequent defence of the said city against the whole force of Jeswont Rao Holkar, his prudent arrangements and disposition of the comparatively few troops under his Orders, his judicious conduct at so difficult a crisis, in the discharge of the'Jiigh and important functions of British Resident at the Court of Delhi, combined with his great energy and animated personal exertions, to which was chiefly attributed the safety of that capital and of the person of Shall Alum, at a time when the loss of either might have proved highly prejudicial to the public inte- rests in Hindostan; and further, the unremitting zeal, foresight, and decision, manifested by the said Major- Gen. under ciremittances of great difficulty, during the - late Contest w ith the State of Nepaul, especially in that series of combined movements, during the nights of the 1- 1 tli and 15th of April, 1815, against the fortified posi- tions of the Goorkah army, on the heights of Malown, Which led to the establishment of the British troops on that range of mountains, theretofore deemed to be im- pregnable, to the evacuation by the enemy of the for- tresses of Malown and Jyetuck, to the defeat and sur, render of Umr Sing Thappa, the Chief Commander of the hostile force, and to the successful and glorious ter- mination of that campaign ; and lastly, the judgment, perseverance, and vigour ' displayed by the said Major- General, as Commander of the British forces, upon the renewal of the contest with the aforesaid State, the h ippy and triumphant results of which have been con- solidated by a treaty of peace between the East India Company and the Rajah of Nepaul, highly beneficial to the interests of the British Empire in India;— his Royal Highness, desirons, in addition to other marks of his Royal approbation, of commemorating the faithful and important services of the said Major- General, by grant- ing unto him certain honourable. armorial augmentations, has been pleased to give and grant his Majesty's Royal licence and permission, that lie the said Sir D.

The following interesting communication has been received by the Brazil packet. It will I e seen, with regret, that the most deplorable anarchy prevails throughout the whole of the richest provinces of the new world :—- " Rio Janeiro, Oct. 26.— The state of the River Plate cannot be described w ithout feelings of horror, on contemplating. J he causes which have brought that country into the extreme ot misery and desolation. In Santa Fe ( part of the Buenos Ayrcs territory) fresh scenes of con- fusion have been repeated. Diaz, Velez, and Dorrego, after levying a contribution of 00,000 dollars, gave the city up to pillage for live days. The inhabitants of Cordova and Santa Fe having formed a junction with part of Attigas' troops, attempted to cut off the retreat of the Buenos Ayrcs troops, but the latter opened their way, after losing a number of men. The army acting in the vicinity of the Andes, under the command of San Martin, has been considerably reinforced, and although it is said that its object is to attempt the conquest of Chili, this must be pronounced a very hazardous enterprizt?,, un- less a party is already formed in the country. The army acting in Peru, under the command of Gen- Belgrano, remains in its old cantonments in Tucunta.— The Lima army had made no movement from the neighbourhood of Injuy. New levies and contributions are forming in Buenos Ayres, and all Blacks from the age of 16 to 50, without any exception, are to be organised into a distinct corps. About the inidute of last September the greatest inunda- tion was experienced that was ever known. Near 20 vessels were lost, and among them one of the prizes taken from the Spaniards near Cadiz; she foundered with a cargo of sugar on board, and of the crew only three men were saved. In the country also great ravages have happened, and the total loss in estimated at 2000 dollars. Accounts have reached us here from Rio Garde up to the middle of the present month, stating, that the Portuguese army had already moved forwards from Santa Thersa and Cerro Largo, in the direction of Maloonado and Monte Video." Advices reached town on Monday from An- tigua, which mention that the ship Hercules, commanded by Brown, the Buenos Ayres Adm. and detained at Antigua by the Brazen sloop of War, had been condemned there on a charge of a breach in the revenue laws. This vessel, we believe, was changed to the Duke of Palma, had gold and other valuables on board of the esti mated value of 500,000 dollars. Admiral Brown, when taken, was on his way to England wilh the rich harvest he had gathered since his absence from the River Plate, and is quite in- dignant at the sentence passed by the Court lie considers the magnitude of the Prize, and not an infraction of the Custom- house laws, to be the real cause of condemnation. Under this impression he intends to appeal against the sen- tence of the British Government, and has sent off agents from Baltimore to the Government of Buenos- Ayres, to make known the result of the proceedings in the case of his ship. This i'nea sure appeared the more extraordinary, as it was understood, previously to judgment being given, that Brown no longer identified himself with the Buenos- Ayres Government ; but so soon as the sentence was promulgated, he not only con- nected himself with the cause ofthelndependents hut intimated a threat of retaliation on the part of the Buenos- Ayres Government against the British trade. SURREY SESSIONS, Jan. 15. ! IHK Kim; V. NORTON. In this case the defendant had been convicted, nndei ' heHavrkcrs'aud Pedlars'Act, of hawking and ex pi to sale, from house to house, in the parish of Chi is I church, in Hie county of Surrey, on the 30tU of September last, not having a licence as required by Act of Par- liament. The defendant now- appealed against the conviction, and contended, that under the provisions of the Act no licence was necessary. Heddington, the Inspector of Hawkers' and Pedlars' Licences, proved, that, on the day in question, he saw the defendant in the parish of Christchurch, selling sand, with a horse and cart, from house to house. The officer went up to defendant and desired to see his li cence; he acknowledged he had none, and said he did not consider any necessary. Mr. HUTCHINSON, for the defendant, now contended, that this conviction could not stand. The Act of Par- liament said, that any person hawking, selling, or ex- posing to sale, from house to house, goods, w ares or merchandize, not manufactured or made by himself, and not having a licence, should be liable to a penalty , but if the seller w as also the maker or manufacturer of the commodity which he exposed to sale, then no licence would be necessary. He understood itwould now be con- tended that defendant was not the maker or manufacturer of the commodity which lie sold. He was ready to admit that .' and thus sold was goods, wares, and merchandize; but lie should also contend, that it was manufactured goods, and manufactured by the defendant. The Learn- ed Counsel, to establish the fact, called evidence, which proved that the sand in question was dug on Hampstead Heath|, out of deep pits, that it was taken up in large lumps, which were afterwards broken with pickaxes, and the stones taken out; some sand was red, other white, and some yellow ; and these, before, they were fit for sale, were mixed in certain proportions. This process, the Learned Counsel contended, amounted to such a manufacturing as brought tiie commodity within the meaning of ibe Act, and such a making by the de- fendant, as authorise his selling it afterwards without a licence. Mr. LAWS and Mr. SPANKIE, in support of the con- viction, contended that this was no making or manu- facturing ( hecommodity. Notwithstanding all the dig- ging, dusting, and mixing, which it underwent, it was still sand and nothing else. The defendant was neither the maker nor the worker of it, and the Learned Coun- sel contended the defendant was not authorised to vend it unless he had a licence. The CHAIRMAN, after hearing the arguments on both sides, observed, the Court would not on this occasion be called 011 to decide whether the defendant was the maker or worker of the commodity or not. By the provisions of the Act a manufacturer might sell his goods in any city, borough, or market town, now it ap- peared that the present sale did not occur in a place coming within any of the above descriptions, and there- fore whether sand was manufactured goods or not, was in this instance of no importance, the conviction must be affirmed. SHIPWRECK AND WRECKERS. The seveie gale of wind which prevailed during the whole of Friday and Saturday last, caused serious ap- prehensions for the consequences along the coast; and ••\ e ai'c so, v to state, they have not proved unfounded. " n ly on Saturday morning, a brig was observed in Huimt's Bay, approaching the unfinished harbour of portleaveu; when within about " 2 miles of the shore, became to anchor, and succeeded in riding out the storm until about 6o'clock in the evening, when finding that no boat could approach, and having parted one ancli > r, the. Master cut the other, aiid ran the vessel ashore, as the only chance of preserving the lives of the crew. She grounded on a fine sandy beach a little to the eastward of the new Pier, and as the tide had be- gun to ebb, the whole of the crew were enabled to reach the shore in safety;-. She proved 10 be the Re- solution, Brysan, master, from Oporto to London, with wine and fruit. As soon as the ebb tide allowed, the vessel was entered by thousands- of Ruffians, who pro- ceeded to plunder. All the private property of the Captain and crew was carried off; the heads of the pipes and hogsheads were staved in, and kegs, & c. filled with the liquor; the whole of the fruit was either scattered about, or carried away; and out of a cargo of 375 pipes, and 25 hogsheads of wine, only between 50 and CO pipes were saved by the Agents. Several con- tests took place between " the plunderers, each being anxious to secure the greatest possible share of the booty. About 11 dismounted Dragoons from Helston came to the spot, hat they were wholly unable to re- strain the ferocious multitude that rushed in on all sides. The vessel in the first instance sustained but little da- mage, but by Monday she wasa complete wreck. The country people have ripped up the hull, and some of the timber has been sold for the proprietors. Almost the whole of the cargo might have been saved had it not been for the infamous conduct above described.— A yoiiui; man, belonging to Wendron was drowned by the violence of the sea, whilst endeavouring to save some articles from the wreck, and two other persons got so miKfli intoxicated with wine, that they were unable to reach home, and were next, day found dead by the road side, having perished through the inclemency of the weather.— Surely Some steps ought, to be taken lo pre- vent. the recurrence of scenes, which, in the eyes of strangers, stamp such disgrace on the country at hu ge. It is hardly possible bat that the Agents have been able to mark the most active of the depredators, and if so, they can point them out to justice.— They should be sought after, and made an example, to deter others from following up a system of plunder so infamously brutal. We have no doubt that the Magistrates in the neigh- bourhood will do their duty, and endeavour to bring some of the principal ruffians to justice. Dutch Papers to the 12th, and Paris Journals to the same date have been received. The lat- ter are singularly barren, and the former do not make amends by bringing us any very interest- ing political news. The plague continues its ravages 011 thp Turkish frontiers. Great exertions appear to be made to procure a full supply of Corn for France and for the Army which occupies and preserves that country. Paris, Jar. 12.— After mass, Marshal Le febvrc, Duke of Dantzic, was admitted to take the oath before his Majesty, who gave into his hands his Marechal's baton. General Leclerc has just died at Paris. Notwithstanding the calamities which have weighed upon France, the zeal of the dissemi- nators of vaccination has not diminished. In 76 departments, according lo the return, out of 628,651 children bom in 1815, 251,116 have hern vaccinated. At the City of Boulogne a remarkable event has occurred :— On the 5th of this month, be- tween 1 and 2 o'clock in the morning, being low water at the time, the sea rushed into the port with such velocity that inless than half an hour il jhad risen 5 feet, " that is2 feet above its ordinary level. A North- west wind raged at the time. In consequence of this rush a great number of cable's were broken. Several ships and boats were dashed against the mole, and experienced Considerable damage. Those conversant in the phenomena of the ocean say there has been an earthquake. Ancona, Dec. 27.— Two ships are arming to protect our commerce. A great number of ships with cod and salt fish have entered our port. Corn has fallen in price considerably. Many strangers are here, and among others some Russians of distinction. The arrival of a Russian Squadron in the Adriatic is talked of. ' Ceite, Jan. 13.— Our city now very busy. It is a long time siuce we expected to see our commerce resume such activity. Brussels, Jan. 7.— Suicides increase in an alarming manner in our country. We will not offer the sad list to o « r readers; it would be too afflicting. Are we to attribute these acts of folly and despair to misery, or the forgetfulness of religions principles l—( L'Oracle.) Nuremberg, Jan. 3.— An active war against the robbers is carrying on in Bohemia; a great number of whom seem to have fled to this king- dom, since they have been driven from Prussian Silesia. Constantinople, Nov. 26.— The number of sick is considerably augmented. Of 33 who were taken to the hospital of the Greeks none have escaped. At that of Pera the number rose from :><) to 60, of whom 42 are living. In the ,-. e ,, f this month 12 were taken to the Arme- n; tj.|- • r\- f. have resUted the contagion. New South Wales.-- V.\[ incl a of letter from the Rev. Mr. Marsden to the Secretary of the Missionary Society, dated June 7, 1816.—" A vessel has just arrived from the Society; they are on board another vessel which is not yet arrived here. I have seen a letter from Mr. Davies to my colleague, the Rev. W. Cowper, which contains the most flattering accounts. I have conversed with the master of the vessel ind passengers, cm the subjec t of the mission; and all accounts agree, that a most wonderful change has been produced in all the Society islands, and the spread of the Gospel seems to be almost universal. Pomarc is become a great man, and a pious Christian, as appears from the whole of his conduct. I understand he is now a sovereign once more, llis enemies made an iittack upon him and his people on theSabbalh IIATTON- GARDEN.— Caution to Hawkers of Cobbett's Weekly Register.— On Tuesday John Barlow was brought tip and examined under the Hawker's Act, charged with going from house to house and offering for sale a sheet of printed paper, called Cobbett's Political Register, price 2d. the. same being unstamped, and he not having a hawker's license. The informer's witness deposed, that about 12 o'clock that day, the prisoner came into the Rose and Crown public- house, facing the office, where he sold one of Cobbett's Registers for 2d. iliat witness followed the prisoner into Hat- and- Tun- yard, wheie he sold two more of them for 4d. Witness then demanded his licence, and he said he had none, but that Mr. Cobbett would indemnify him. The charge being proved, the prisoner was asked what he had to say in his defence. lie slated that he was a poor man, who was out of employ, and that he engaged with a gentleman living at No. 18, Queen- street, Northampton- square, to hawk them about, and that he would indemnify him from the consequence. The Magistrate told the prisoner to send to I hat gentleman to come forward and pay the penalty for him. He was then convicted in the penalty of £ 10, and in default, to be committed for three months lo the House of Correction. Town- Hall, Borough, Southwark.— Extra- ordinary Charge.— Wednesday, G. Richardson was brought before Sir John Eamer, charged with an outrage of the following nature;— The prisoner, it appeared, had gone into the Cock public- house, in Tooley- street, as early as seven o'clock on Sunday morning, where he had some drink, Shortly after he began to manifest some violence, making rise of expressions of a mosl seditious nature. Among other sentiments which lie ullered was—" May England and Ireland he enveloped in flames, and may nothing but the blood of the people he found to extinguish them." The persons present remonstrated wilh . him strongly upon his conduct, but he repeated ihe same sentiment four several times, declaring so- day, when they imagined they would not defend lemnlv that it flowed sincerely from his heart themselves; but Pomare felt it his duty to fight on the Sabbath, in defence of himself and sub- jects, In this battle he obtained a complete victory, and took many prisoners, whose lives he spared, contrary to their custom, w hich has had the most happy effect upon the minds of his enemies, us il has convinced them that the new religion is a merciful religion, Many have join- ed him from the effects of his clemency." Captain Breycinet, of the French navy, is about to make a new voyage, solely for objects of science. He will soon embark at Toulon, in the King's corvette the Uran- e. His principal object is the determination of the form of the South hemisphere of the earth, collecting also in his journal the various remarks that may occur to him on general physics, meteorology, and natural history. Capt. Freyciuet was employed in Bourdin's last voyage of discovery. Intelligence from Parma announces the in- tended departure of the Archduchess for Vienna, to which, it is said, she has been invited by her august father. The Grand Marshal of Ihe Court of Russia, the Count of Tolstoy, has just died at Dresden, where he has been some time. The Russian General Doctoroff, who distin- guished himself in the late war, died at Moscow in November last. We are sorry to learn that an alarming fever has been prevailing at St. Domingo. At Cape Henry it has been very fatal: and we regret to state that Lieut. Shabner, R. N.; Capt. Fullar- ton, of the ship Sir Joseph Banks-, and Mr. John White, have fallen victims to its violence. By the last accounts, however, it had nearly subsided at the Cape, but had reached Go naives, where it had carried off a German Gen tleman of the name of Shuckman from Bremen, and the greater part of tjie crew of at) English ship. Perceiving that he was likely to be apprehended, lie took from his pocket a clasp knife, w hich he sharpened upon his sin e, and put up the sleeve of his coat, sw eating he would stab the first man that approached him. He said lie had been driven to desperation, having taken off his shirt and sold it for 2s. in order to procure Some drink! Being asked by Sir J. Earner to account for the violence and unjustifiable expressions of which he had been guilty, he evinced much con- trition, and stated, that having been on board the Queen, of 74 guns, he had received a frac- ture on the » kull, and ever since that time, when- ever he made use of liquor, he was rendered in- capable of distinguishing between right and wrong. Sir J. Earner said, if he was conscious of this result from ihe use of liquors, it was his duty to avoid drinking, as otherwise, in some fatal mo- ment of mad inebriety, the life of a fellow- crea- ture might be sacrificed to his fury. As he had 110 proof, however, beyond his own assertion, of the temporary madness to which he was subject, he ( Sir John) felt it his duty to detain him in custody until he had produced proof to the effect urged, and also evidence as to his character, in default of w hich the prisoner was of course committed. Robbery.— A Gentleman named Hollings had his pocket picked of his watch, uuder the walls of the Old Bailey Court, on Wednesday night, at the time the trials were going on. He was crossiug over towards the Court, when a fellow snatched the watch, and he caught him by the arm. In the scuffle ihe robber dropped the property. He WHS rescued by some accom- plices, notwithstanding the aid of the constables present, and a wrong man was taken and roughly handled before he could speak for himself. He turned out to be a respectable young man, a smith, who was going home from iliis work. The Riots.— On Thursday the Grand Jurv found true bills for Ihe capital offence against Hooper, Cashman, Gunnell, and Simmons. The moment' it was understood that Hooper was amongst those who are to be tried upon the capital charge, Cartwright, the Marshalman, w as sent to apprehend him. Hooper was found playing at cards with Mr. Harrison, one of his bail, and immediately conducted to Newgate. Robbery of St. Paul's Cathedral. On Wed nesday morning, during the time of the thick fog, the choir of St. Paul's Cathedral was rob- bed in a very daring manner of three large church prayer- books, at the time the regular morning service was proceeding about ten o'clock. It was so extremely dark that the Cler- gyman was obliged to have a light, and hold it close to the book, and the darkness enabled some person to takeaway the books unobserved Singular Detection of a Robbery.— Aboul a twelve month since, the house of a ladv at Clifton, which had been left in the care of ser- vants was one night completely stript of all its furniture, even down to the chairs and tables. At a sale last week in the village, an attendant thought he recognised some articles he had seen before, and after inquiring of an upholsterer; ascertained that they had been made by him for the lady whose house had- been robbed. A warrant was consequently obtained for the ap prehension of the person whose property was selling; and upon examination before G. Gold- ney, Esq. the Magistrate then sitting at Law- ford's gate, the only account he could give o the way in which the furniture, came into his hands, was, that he bought it one morning of a sailor passing by his door, lie has conse- quently been fully committed for trial at the next Gloucester Assizes. Desperate Poachers.— On Thursday night, the 2d instant, a numerous gang of poachers made their appearance at Broxtow, Notts, where they took a man, who, was sometimes employed as an uuder- keeper for the Right Hon. Lord Middleton, into close custody, in order to pre- vent his giving any alarm; they then proceeded to the house occupied by Mr. Cooke, one of his Lordship's keepers, at Shortwood, which a part of them surround eel., while another part went in pursuit of game. The under: keeper whom they had w ith them was compelled to lie- down on the ground, and a man armed with a pistol sat upon him. Mr. Cooke's dog, however, having given an alarm, he was instantly shot. Mr. Cooke j was awakened by the report, and fired out of jthe window; " Hie fire was returned 011 . both sides several limes, and an attempt was made to get. into the house, but without success. ' The noise of the firing, however, soon. brought the watch aud ward to his assistance, together with, some other persons, when the poachers decamped, ami attempted to make their escape : but ohe'o- f them was soon discovered and secured; and three more have since been taken into custody,', and are in Nottingham comity gaol, but they ham not yet been examined before the Magistrate's, Some short time siuce an infant, a few days old, was found hanging from a tree, in Sandv- lane, near Kew; it was suspended by the string of a coloured apron. Inquiries were imme- diately made in the neighbourhood, and sus- picion fell upon a woman who carried about milk at Mortlake; she had been-- remarked to be with child, and to have appeared less about tiie period when the child was discovered'; she was asked if she had lost an apron, and she said she had ; and 011 file apron being shown to her, which was found with the. child, she admitted it to be hers, but denied her having been with child. The evidence of a midwife, and a man midwife and surgeon, proved the falsehood of' her assertion, and she was committed on the Coroner's warrant to the New Gaol in Horse- monger- lane ; she refused to make any discovery, but said, that when she was tried she would say what she knew. She died last week- in t he New Gaol. About IG months since a child w as found murdered and slightly covered with earth, in a field near Mortlake church,- and she was then CORONER'S INQUEST. Melancholy Death of J. Harriott, Esq.-. OF THE THAMES POLICE- OFFICR. An Inquest was held before J. W. Unwin, esq, one of the Coroner's for Middlesex, 011 the body of this lamented and respected Magistrate, of which the following are the leading facts aud circumstances : — Mr. Harriott for nine months past had been afflicted with a disease in the bladder, which subjected him to continual paroxysms of excru- ciating pain, often attended with profuse he- morrhage. On Friday morning about 4 o'clock, his medical attendant ( Mr. Holloway) was sent for, who found him in such exquisite pain, that the deceased requested this gentleman to relieve him at all events, even if the means should ter- minate in death, Mr. Harriott was then placed in a warm bath. At 8 o'clock the same morn- ing this gentleman w- as again sent for; lie found Mr. Harriott bleeding from several self- inflicted wounds in different parts of his body. On the left temple was a slight wound, which ha I di- vided a branch of the temporal artery. In the left arm, below the elbow, was another wound, about two inches long, and about the fourth of an inch deep. The veins of the arm were only injure! 1, and the artery untouched. The last and most serious wound was in the abdomen', over the stomach, through which a portion of the intestines had protruded. This wound would have been mortal in most cases, from sub- sequent inflammation, but was not considered so in the present instance, owing to the profuse discharge of blood. On dissection after death,, by order of the Coroner, the bladder was found highly ulcerated, and filled with coagulated blood, w hich by the above practitioners who at- tended was considered as tiie immediate cause of death. It was proved that during the last fortnight the faculties of the deceased were greatly im- paired, and his mind overcome by dejectiou^ from a continued series of pain aud suffering. . The Coroner called the attention of the j^ rv. : n the first place, to the statement which h:> d been given as to'ihe'situation of the deceased'*- nind and understanding, and left to iher;- :<> decide, whether he had contributed to his own death, or had come to his end by natural means from the effect of his complaint. Verdict — " Natural Death." strongly suspected ; and during the" investigation which has taken place 011 the present occurrence it has been discovered, that the wretch had fled from Wales on suspicion of having destroyed a child there. She was a fresh- coloured hand- some- looking woman, aud appeared to be about twenty- seven. Shocking Accidents.— The following mclai. choly accident occurred near Lewes, about seven o'clock on Monday se'nnight:— As a poor indus- trious woman, named Wood, of the Cliff, was returning home from the house of the miller of Malling, whither she had been on business, to horten her passage cut across an enclosed spot, of ground on which the mill stands, in a direct line towards the swifts, not then at work ; but the moment of her approaching them, the grinder, unhappily pulled up the break, and gave motion to the swifts, one of which struck her on the arm, and shattered the boue to pieces, and before she could get out of the way of the rotary progress, the next met her, and dreadfully fractured her collar bone and one of her thighs, ul. icli gave a check to Ihe machinery, and fed the grinder to suspect that all was " not right without: he in consequence quitted his mili to examine into the cause, and was shocked to find the poor creature lying in the dreadful stiii< » above described. She was taken up without hopes of recovery, and conveyed home, whe: e she languished until Thursday, and expired.— The surgeon" who attended observed, that of all the unfortunate objects lie had Witnessed in, hospitals, he never saw one so much mangled as this woman. The husband of the deceased has for some time been rendered incapable of work, from the effects of a paralytic stroke; but his family, consisting of four young children, had been wholly supported by the industry of his wife, . without the assistance of the parish, though her sufferings must occasionally have been great, on her being taken home after the accident not a morsel of any kind of food, nor. a farthing Lo purchase any, could be found in the house. Tuesday, about 12 o'clock, as a dray, belong- ing to a small beer brewery, was waiting at a door, in Brown's- lane, Spitalfields,. a waggon passing at the time the wheels came in contact, which frightened the horse in the dray, and made him start off; and notwithstanding the active exertions of the carman to stop him he drove in the shop- window of Mr. Moore, a soap- maker, and unfortunately knocked down a Mrs. Blacker, and killed., her on the spot ; the poor woman was upwards of 70 years of age* and well- know n as a silk- winder in the neighbourhood of Spital- fields.— A.

Rogers, a resident at Brownshall- green, near Coventry.,;,; wdio.; pu' - the Monday night previous, was inhumanly" murdered, by sonic villains cutting his throat from ear to ear, and dreadfully fracturing his skull in several places. They afterwards robbed the premises of various articles of plate and wearing- apparel. It ap- pears thai the deceased, who was a shoemaker by trade, afid far advanced in years, had latterly lived atone; and that on the evening of the murder he had been from home, to whence he returned between six and seven o'clock. When found on the following morning a candle was. firmly grasped in his hand, . and some shoes, which lie had been repairing, were lying bv his side. Verdict — Wilful murder against some person or persons unknown. Suspicion falling upon a man of the name of Chas. Sanders, about 25 years of age, a labourer, who lived about a mile from the residence of the deceased and to whom he was well known, the officers of the City of Coventry went to Sanders's house, on Thursday last, where they found some spoons, wedding rings, &- e. belonging to the deceased, concealed in the thatch, and Sanders Had one of his shirts on at the time ; together with a new cut crab stick, with which it is supposed he committed " the murder, by fractur- iig the skull of the poor man in several places.

The Brazilian Court has absolutely refused to give up the province of Guiana, claimed by France, and another proposal made by his Majesty the King ol France has been no better received. , r Ghent, Jan. 12.— The price of com has risen at th^ Brussels markets; there was a dis- turbance for some moments, but this slight effervescence had no consequence1. " The arrondissement of Ypres has just made its Budget of Subsistence. By striking the ba- lance between the harvest and the consumption lip to the 1st January, it appears that there re- mained at the time about 115,000 hectolitres of corn in the hands of the inhabitants and the farmers. " The minimum of the annual consumption being. 222,000 hectolitres, it must be for nine months, I. K. till the harvest of 1817 can be used, 160,51) 0 hectolitres. By this calculation there io a deficiency of 51,000 hectolitres. " These statistical data are the more alarming, as exportation is to continue in spile of the nation and of its representatives, and in spite of the universal cry which terror extorts from a people, who are filled with astonishment at knowing what distress is. " Switzerland, Jan. 4.— The arrivals of corn at Basle continue ; last market day there re- mained 3154 sacks unsold. This abundance lias caused the price to fall ; that of bread also lias declined.

FLANDERS MAIL,. | Brussels, Jan. 10.— SECOND CHAMBER.— The expectation of a proposition relative to the general prohibition of the exportation of corn, had attiacted a numerous audience to the galle- ries, but this communication, so important to the Southern Provinces, had not been made. The President announced four Messages from the First Chamber, stating its approval of four laws relative 1. To the National Militia, 2. To the premiums to be granted for the encouragement of ( lie Herring Fishery: 3. To the Prohibition of tiie Exportation of Corn by the land frontier of the kingdom; 4. To ti c r • vocation of the De- crees of 2lst October, 1814, and 17th March, 1815, on the formalities of the Celebration of Marriage. After this the Order of the day led to the discussion of two laws, one on the part of the deferred debt, w hich on the 21st March next year is to be converted into active debt, which was adopted without a debate ; and the second, relative to the encouragement of the Levant trade, which, after a considerable debate, was rejected by a majority of 50 votes to 10. Liege, Jan. 9.— The Liberal, which follows with perseverance the honourable career which il has entered upon, is going to obtain the glory of a new action for calumny. The Municipal Commission of this City has just circulated with profusion an answer which it has made to an article inserted in the Liberal of the 31st December, relative to the placing of the garrison in barracks. Brussels, Jan. 13.— The amount of the cha- ritable subscriptions for the numerous poor of this city is already above 05,000 francs. At the request of their Majesties the Emperor of Russia, and the King of Prussia, our Sovereign has per- mitted the transit through the kingdom of 945 hectolitres of corn, Coming from abroad, and de- stined for the supply of the Russian and Prussian troops in France. The Governor of Hainault has published, on this occasion, an Address to the inhabitants, in w hich he assures them there is no reason for alarm on this account; that the strictest measures are taken that the quantity fixed shall not be exceeded ; that his Majesty has requested his Allies in future to let the corn they may want pass by any other route than through the Netherlands, tVc.

We announced Ibis a day or two ago. The amount was at first stated to be 150 millions of francs, oi^ about six millions sterling. It is i)."> vv said to be 300 millions, double that sum. This sum was stated in the report of the Mini- ster of Finance to the Chamber of Deputies, as the difference between the receipt and expendi- ture of 1017. " There is a great difference, Gentlemen ( said the Minister), between 774 millions, and 1 mil- liard 89,294,957 franks. " Tiie difficulties which this chasm presents can only be surmounted by the assistance of credit. " Credit alone can supply the deficiency of Ihe revenue, and procure for us, by the confi- dence and the influence of a legitimate interest, those capitals which we neither have the right nor the power to require. " The future must come to the aid of the present. " But in order fliat this burthen may not fa- tigue by its direction, it is necessary that it should contain a progressive and certain princi- ple of reduction, and that its decrease and termi- nation should be fixed bv previous calculations. " This principle of reduction, this undoubted guarantee of gradual alleviation and complete discharge, is the Sinking Fund. " It is fit that Ihe extent of capital on which this measure will have to operate should be known. " The truth ought not to be disguised; we regard it equally worthy of an honest Govern- ment, as indispensible for inspiring confidence in our operations. Credit will not be involved in obscure paths. 11 must see its way clear be- fore it begins to move. " We shall not dissemble that during the four years which separate us from the 1st of January 1821, we may have to make a tall upon the free Capitals of France and of Europe for 7 or 800 millions, and to constitute ourselves debtors for a proportional amount of interest. " We require for 1817, the power of dispo- sing of 30 millions of Inscriptions, the negotia- tion of wliieh will enable us to balance our re- sources and our wants."— Courier. The Parties to the loan are, in London Messrs. Baring and Hope, over whom it can hardly be pretended our ministers could exercise any in- iluence to induce them lo employ their money in the speculation ; in Hamburgh Messrs. Parish and Co. certainly under no confront of the Bri tish Cabinet ; and in Paris itself the House, as we are told, of Lafitte and l'erigaux, w hose por- tion of the advance, cannot be ascribed to the guarantee of our Government. One fourth of the whole ( i. e. 3,000,000/.) is to be furnished by English Capitalists. We pay no attention to the rumour that this amount is to be made forth- coming in any other way than pecuniary remit- tances.— The Sun. The French Agent for the Loan has left Lon- don again for Paris, and the English Contractor will follow in the course of the week : and shortly after his arrival in the French capital, we may expect to hear that the Loan has been finally concluded. The terms on which the Loan of 300 mil- lions of francs, 70 are to be received in the five per cents, and 30 in bonds reimbursable in cash at determined periods, with some other minor conditions favourable to the contractors. The subscribers will apparently get an interest 011 their capital of Oh per cent per annum. We have great satisfaction instating, that con- siderable demands for goods have been recti veil at Manchester, from Spain and Portugal, for the supply of their colonies ; and that many orders for cotton goods have been given in con- sequence of the corn trade. The cotton trade has consequently taken a very favourable turn, and the manufacturers and others employed, therein are in high spirits, and there is abundant evidence that the prospect is bji^ itcyiug. Among the orders received for the linen and damask manufactories of Bielfeld, in Germany, is a very large one, lately given for King Henry of Hayti. Among other things a quantity of the richest damask table- cloths has been bespoke, for which King Henry has sent a drawing of his arms, with various devices, and his motto, " God, uiy cause, and my sword." Besides these or- ders, large purchases have been made in Bremen, and the other Hanseatic cities, for the Queen of Hayti, of services for the table, brilliants, pearls, & e. which have been paid tor in ready money, at high prices. King Christophe of Hayti was formerly the slave of a widow in the island of St. Thomas, where she still lives. He lately wrote a letter, in which he requested her to go to him, that he may testify till his gratitude to her, for the hu- mane and generous treatment he experienced from her in his condition of slavery. This de- mand not having been accepted, he again re- quested the widow to send him at least her son, that he might through him repay this debt of gratitude.

Tuesday, at two o'clock, the proceedings of the Court of Chancery were near being bro ken i « upon by the boisterous and eccentric conduct of Mr. Ludlam, against whom a com mission of Lunacy had been established, and who, it may be recollected, was the unfortu- nate Gentleman that shot at Mr. Peacock, al the London Tavern, about seven years since, lie appeared at the door of the Court, dressed in a gown and cap, similar to those worn by the Westminster scholars, and had 110 stockings 011 ; he was followed by his keeper and a waterman, the latter of whom carried a large bundle of pa- pers rolled up in a most extraordinary manner. One of the officers of the Court stopped him at the door, and demanded his Business? He immediately replied, that he was a walking Barrister, and if the officer would not admit him into Court he would get him discharged. He was il appears well known to the officers who did all they could lo dissuade him from entering the Court ; and, afler a vast deal of persuasion, he paused for a moment or two, turned round upon his heels, and ran across the the square with great rapidity, crying Halloo, halloo, halloo ! He was closely followed by his keeper and a long train of curious spectators. A PLAN to prevent small Vessels, such as Sloops springing a Leak, and thereby sinking. In small decked vessels, such as sloops, there are seldom more than three or four men to navi- gate them, so that if they so spring a leak, the fatigue becomes so great at the pumps that tin men are soon exhausted. When a sloop or smal vessel is building, and before planking the bottom and sides, let the outside of the timbers be rubbed over with a mixture of pitch, tar, cow- hair and powdered charcoal made hot, and which when cold, is of the consistency of cob- ler s wax ; after rubbing the timbers on the outside with this composition, plank the bottom and sides; when the planks are caulked, ( ill all the spaces up between ihe timbers with Ibis 111' xture, and also over the inride of the timbers, then nails on the ceiling or lining planks. It is impossible, if the seams of the outer planks are ever so open, for the vessel to leak; nor can either rats or mice penetrate between the tim- bers, because they will not touch this composi- tion. Two small brass rollers, or friction wheels, fixed on the opposite sides of the pump spear, at the valve, will keep the pump spear upright, aud make tbq pump work easier* EXTRAORDINARY DASHING FEMALE , Queen Square. --- Mr. Joseph Leea, a respectable coach- master, residing in Prii. crt- pla. cp* Westminster, came tOithc Office in order lo ask th. o Magistrate's ad- v. ipQliow lie should ac t, under the following circum- stances :— fie stated, that the evening before, She driver' of one of his coaches* No. 898, had been railed with his • coach from the stand in Charles street, Covent- garden, to take- up a fare at Johnson's a- la- mode beer shop, the corner of Clare- court, in Blackmoor- street. He there took up a lady very genteelly dressed, accompanied by a gentleman, and several, boxes were: handed into the coach, when he was ordered to drive to Catherine- street, where the gentleman left her. He was afterwards ordered to drive to Oxford street, whore lie set her down at a public wine- vaults, and she drank several glasses of brandy. She then, ordered him from one place to another, till she became so intoxicated that she could not articulate, and it being at length past one o'clock in the morning, and supposing she had a good deal of property about her, he took her to St. Maryle- bone watch- house, lint they would not receive her on account of her boxes. After trying one or two more watehhouses, to no better effect', lie at last drove lie home to his master's yard, and put her upon some clean straw in the stable. ' During the time, he was rubbing down his horses she fell asleep, ai. d he left her with her boxes. In the morning, about eight o'clock, Mr. Leea, as was customary with him, went into the stable, where he sawthe lady, and his ostler informed liim that ou his coming there at five o'clock, she. complained of being cold, and said she had 110 money, but gave him a handsome silver knife in a red Morocco case, together a glass of warm brandy and water, which he did, and afterwards a glass of brandy and milk. Mr. 1... imme- diately invited her into his parlour to eat some break- fast, and ordered her boxes to be taken thither. When arrived there, she took from one o( the, boxes a pearl necklace of considerable value, and desired him to keep it as security for his coach hire, as well as any other expence she might hereafter cause him ; she also said she would put a gold chain into his hands, which on feeling for on her neck she perceived she had lost, and on searching the coach it w as found at the bottom. Mr. Fielding said, he thought from the weight it must be vvoitli 9 or 10/. Mr. L. said further, she had several other trinkets, which appeared valuable ; and in one box there were, several parchments. She told him thai the Gentleman she had met with at Johnson's had ob- tained from her a ring to pledge, which was worth 50 or 60 guineas; she also informed him that Mr. Nichols, solicitor, in Watford, was her trustee, and wished he w ould take a letter to him. This was 011 Friday morn- ing last, she had then just gone to bed, and lie came there for advice. Mr. Fielding highly approved of the coach- master's conduct, and appointed a private examination in the evening; and the lady being then sober, gave such an account of herself and her connections, as induced Mr. Fielding to write lo Mr. Nichols, and to send Mr. Leea himself with it, to Watford, Mr. Nicholls answered Mr. Fielding's desire to him, by appointing Wednesday at one o'clock. In the mean time the ladv has been driving about in one of Mr. Leea's hackney chariots, lias lodged atliis house, and behaved very well, only drinking too freely. Mr. Nichols accordingly appeared at the Office, and informed Mr. Fielding that she is a married woman but separated from her husband, Mr. 15 , now living at Halifax, in Yorkshire. She had a good fortune left her by her father lately, deceased, who resided at Wat ford, which she is squandering away very fast. Him- self and a friend of his at Watford, are executors of her father's will, and lie had paid her I2i) l. 011 Wednesday- last, to settle bills for lings, trinkets, and other ex- travagances. Mr. Fielding advised him to get her to Watford as soon as possible, and he left the Office with Mr. Leea, to pay her a visit at her house, and to follow the Magis- trate's advice of getting her out of town without delay.

Extraordinary Attachment.— A wedding, brought about by circumstances of a novel na- ture, took place within these few days at St. An- drew's Church, Holborn. A young woman was tried at a very recent Old Bailey Session, with her mother; the former for robbing her master, a tradesman in Cornhill, and the latter or receiving the stolen goods. During the trial, a young man w ho had casually got into the gal- lery of the Court, suddenly became enamoured of the fair young prisoner, and, after her con viction, he made interest to get to see her, 011 her being taken out of Court, lie then expres- sed his sudden attachment towards her. lie visited her daily, and found her necessaries of every kind in abundance, lie employed great exertion in getting it represented that she bad become a convert, and was truly penitent, rot only to the Recorder and the City Authorities, but, by a petition to the Secretary ofState, and he promised to marry her should the Royal Cle- mency be afforded her. The behaviour of the prisoner, it was testified was good ; and last week she received a free pardon, on condition that the young man should marry her immedi- ately. The next morning the happy pair accom- panied Mr. Crossley, Chaplain to the Refuge for the Destitute, to the Church, where they were married, and Mr. C. paid all expences. The bride and bridegroom retired to the resi- dence of the latter in White Cross- street. Effects of Jealousy.—- A few days ago, the w ife of a coach- maker, residing at Chelsea, put a period to her existence in a fit of jealousy, bv taking a quantity of arsenic. It was about ti^ ht o'clock in the morning when she took the fatal potion. She, in a short time after, became quite raving, and ran from one room to another in a state of distraction, refusing to tell what ailed her, till the servants found a goblet with a Quan- tity of arsenic crusted upon the sides. Several surgeons were sent for immediately ; they found upon the deceased all the symptoms of having taken poison; one of the surgeons procured a strong emetic, and begged the deceased to take it; she sternly refused to take it; she said, that she had lost the affections of her husband, ntitl bad determined to put an end to a miserable life. All the surgeon begged and prayed tlia she would take the- antidote; bat their ar- guments to persuade her were thrown away. A physician was called in, and a consultation was held, and they resolved to use force, and they drenched the deceased ; a quantity of the arsenic immediately came off her somach, and she was a little convulsed. The surgeons were of opinion that she bad taken more than an ounce of arsenic, for she informed them that she felt very little pain. The dose was so large that it had destroy- ed the stomach, and deadened the internal parts. She lingered tiil five o'clock the same day, and then expired with seeming composure. She had been walking the day before her death, and was apparently as well as usual. She was a very line woman, and very high spirited. Thursday se'nuight the body of William Pinkerton, smuggler, was found ir the Forth and Clyde Canal. He had been missing since the beginning of last month, and when found had a flask of whisky tied to his back.

Ladies and Gentlemen, rsnilF. uncommon demand for a supply of my - newly- invented JAPAN BLACKING " from al- most every town in the United Kingdom, and the nu- merous communications I am daily receiving, all bear- ing testimony to its matchless excellency, awakens in my mind the most lively emotions of gratitude, and de- mands my warmest acknowledgemnts for the interest you have taken in promoting the sale of this useful com- modity. I am well aware that whatever is offered to a discerning Public ought to prove itsown excellency, aj every floweV carries with it its own sweetness; but ol't we witness the labours of the mostingenious and deserv- ing rendered unsuccessful, arising from the difficulty irt prevailiug 011 others to scrutinize its meirts ; this, how- ever, is not the case with my humble exetrions to ren- der myself useful to society ; but from one department of the nation to another has my brilliant composition gained the ascendancy. Nor would I wish to disguise the fact, how much I am indebted for this unparalleled distinction to those Ladies and Gentlemen, who, ever ready to encourage merit, have laid such particular injunctions on their servants to purchase no oilier Blacking hut that which bears the impression of tho. name of RICHARD TURNER, which highly distin- guished prefeience I will endeavour to preserve, by a constant and unwearied attention to every future com. maud I'may be honoured with.

The French Government are fitting out two vessels for the purpose, it Is said, of proceedingto the Southern Hemisphere,, to determine the true situation of that part of the globe. The command of the expedition is given '. o Monsieur Freycinet, who served as Lieutenant de Vaisseau with M. Bandin, in Le Geographe frigate, it) the'voyage ( accompanied by Le Naturaliste), in 1801, 1802, 1803, and 1804, to New Holland. Several per- sons of abilities, as engineers, naturalists, astronomers. Sec. & c. arc to accompany M. Freycinet. The state of the Southern Hemisphere must be so well known, from the repeated voyages thither, since the days of Cook, that there is strong reason to suspect that is not the im mediate object in view. The loss of the Mauritius to the French is very great, and has been already severely felt by them. From this circumstance, and their having no possessions in the East, the care in the selection of the persons to be employed, the secrecy that lias been observed in the equipment of the expedition, w hich is expected soon to leave the shores of Europe, these are forcible reasons to apprehend, that the ultimate object is the foundation of a colony which may, one day, prove as mischievous to this country as the Isles of France and Bourbon were in the late wars. On the south- west coast of New Holland ( or, as it has been termed by the late Capt. Flinders, the late M. Baudin, and others, Terro Auttralasla, its original name), is a large river which runs considerably towards the northward and cast, and which was minutely examined by the French when there, and named by them La Riviere des Cygnes, from the number of swans they met with. The country about the river is represented as very luxuriant in her- bage., & c. Sec. and possessing many advantages. In the former voyage of M. Freycinet, all their discoveries were named after Buonaparte, or some one of his family; such as Terre Napoleon, Golfe Josephine, Golfe Buonaparte, L'Isle Jerome, L'Isle Murat, Sec. As M. Freycinet, however, has now abjured the Napoleonomania, he will no doubt take care, in his new voyage, to re- baptize all the discoveries of M. Baudin. The following Circular has been addressed to the Ministerial Members of the House of Com- mons:— Downing- street, Jan. 14, 1817. Sir,'— As itappears to be quite Certain that an Amend- ment is to be moved to the Address, and thata Division will take place, I think it right to give you the infor- mation, and at the same time to beg the favour of ynu, very earnestly, to attend in the House on the. first day of the Session. I should not have troubled you upon this occasion if any doubt had remained in respect to the intention of the Opposition. I have the honour to be, Sir, yonrs faithfully, ( Signed) C. ARBUTHNOT. MAIDSTONE, Jan. 21. \ ' NEW COIN. We feel considerable satisfaction in stating to our readers that Government have appointed Messrs. Edmeads Atkins and Tyrrell, of the Maidstone Bank, agents for this town and neighbourhood, for issuing the New Silver Coinage, which is expected to be ready for general circulation about the 3d of February, and the holders of the old coin will have nothing more to do than to present the same at the Maidstone Bank, where it will be exchanged for the New Currency. HOP INTELLIGENCE. Southwark, Jan. 20, 1817.— We continue to have a very dull Hop trade, but it silits ns very well, as if it were otherwise we should soon have none left.— No alteration in our prices. MONTHLY STOCK MARKET. Maidstone, Jan. 14.— Our market this day was very well supplied, particularly with Beef, some of which ran exceeding fine. The sale was brisk, and nearly the whole of the stock bought up. There were about 190 Beasts, 1050 Sheep, 130 Pigs, and 11 Calves, which sold as follows:— Beef Ss. 8d. to 4s. 2d,; Mutton 4s. to 4s. Od.; Pork 3s. Gd. to 4s.; and Veal 4s. 8d. to 5s per stone. TRIAL OF THE RIOTERS. Old Baily, Monday, Jan. 20.— The trial of the rioters commenced this day. At ten o'clock Mr, Justice Park and Mr Justice Burrough took their seats on the Bench; and the prisoners, John Hooper, John Cashman, Richard Gamble, Wil- liam Gunnell, and John Carpenter, were imme- diately put to the Bar, and arraigned before a London Jury, They severally pleaded Not Guilty, and put themselves upon God and their country.— The wlioleofthe evidence having been gone through, Mr. Justice Parke, with his usual perspicuity, summed up. The Jury having retired; after an absence of two hours and a halfreturned the following verdict:— JOHN CASHMAN— Guilty,: Death. RICHARD GAMBLE— Not Guilty. JOHN HOOPER- Not Guilty. WM. GUNNELL — Not Guilty. JOHN CARPENTER— Not Guilty. The persons acquitted were detained OJI the charge of misdemeanour.— The verdict was not delivered till li, alf past six o'clock. Paris papers to the 17th instant have been re ceived. In the House of Peers the Election Law is simply consigned to a Committee, previ cuslv to the discussion on the subject ; and in the Chamber of Deputies, the law of personal li- berty, as it is improperly called, undergoes the process of three days' debute. It is not seen that much light is thrown upon the bill by these repeated argumentations. The old law certainly appears to have been leniently enforced, consi- dering the existing condition of France. Never were there more than 319 under arrest trom it; and this number has been successively reduced till it is under 30. The subjects of surveillance, tvhich is probably no very happy state of exis- tence, are much more numerons: yet the whole does. not seem lo present an appalling aspect of the measures necessary or expedient for the maintenance of the present establishment, so far as municipal laws, or the execution of them, go. The foreign armies constitute another and more powerful means of ensuring tranquillity, yet they have never meddled, since they took up their present line of occupation, with the mere internal movers of sedition; their task is to prevent the revolutionary spirit of conquest and plunder from bursting forth afresh over the tenitorics conti- guous ta France. We have by the Packet from Jamaica, Jour- nals to the 1st ult. lilt be Houseof Assembly oathe2iid November, The Bill for a more particular return of Slaves in the island, and the enrolment thereof, was presented and rend the first time. Motions that the said Bill be printed for the use of Ihe Members, and that it should be read a second time on Wednesday ensuing, were carried in the affirmative ( Division on the first motion— Ayes 17, Noes 1C ; and on the second, Ayes 17, Noes 15.) The Bill in furtherance of the Abolition Laws within the island, was also presented and read the first time. — Ordered a second reading on Wednesday. - Wednesday, Nov. 27.— Bill for a more- particular return of Slaves in this Island, and the enrolment thereof, read a second time-, and motion for its commitment this day six months, on debate and division ( Ayes to, Noes 27), negatives and the Bill ordered to be committed^ Bill in furtherance of the Provisions of the Abolition Law, read a second time, and ordered to be committed, Thus we observe, that the' Legislature of Jamaica are pursuing their own measures, for the purpose of taking away even the shadow of an ar- gument in favour of that bone of contention— the Slave Registry Bill. Mr. Barre Beresford IMIS been appointed to the Office of Deputy Vice Treasurer of Ireland. NEW SILVER COINAGE. The subsequent Communication will afford great satisfaction to the Public:— " Mr. W. Pole presents his compliments to the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor, and has the honour to enclose a copy of a notice which has been issued ibis morning from the Mint. Mr. W. Pole lias taken the liberty of ordering the first 500 notices which can be printed to be sent to his Lordship from the Gazette Office, in order that his Lordship may, if he judge it to be proper, have them circulated as speedily as possible in the City of London." Copy of the Notice enclosed :— NOTICE— NEW SILVER COINAGE. Royal Mint, Jan. 17,1317.— The New Silver Coinage being now very near finished, arrangements are making for enabling all his Majesty' 6 subjects, in every part of Great Britain, to exchange at the same period the old for the new silver coin of the realm. This exchange will commence on or before Monday, the 3d of Fe- bruary next; and all standard silver coin of Vie realm, however defaced Or reduced in weight by nse, Will be received in exchange for the new coin, by tale, at its nominal value. The Public are requested to observe, that the New Silver Coin to be issued from his Majesty's Mint, upon this occasion, will be delivered in exchange to the holders of the Old Coin. It is therefore strongly re commended, that ail Silver Coin of the Realm, however defaced or reduced in weight by use, which is now in circulation should continue to be given and received in payment, for the very short period that will elapse before the issue of the New Silver Coin. By this means no interruption in the circulation will arise. NOTE. The old Silver Coin of the Realm, however defaced or reduced in weight by use, is received in payments, at its nominal value, bv all branches of the Revenue, and at the Bank of England, and will continue to be so until it is exchanged for the new silver coinage, ( Signed) W. W. POLE, Master and Worker of his Majesty's Mint, It is at length determined that all the British officers serving with the Portuguese army shall be placed on the half pay of great Britain from Christmas last. The Queen's Birth- Day.— On Saturday was observed the Festival of Her Majesty's Birth- day, and the best of British feelings are called into life by the remembrance it brings, that this Royal Personage, exemplary to the Nation at the head of which Providence placed her, as a Wife, a Mother, and a Queen, has now been 55 yeorVs the Sovereign of England, during all that time fnr- • ishint; a bright pattern to her Subjects of every jank, and displaying in the Throne all those wurat virtues which adorn every station. The Bank of England have also extended the lime from the 1st February next until the 1st of May for receiving Bank dollar tokens al the rate of 5s. Od. each. Silver lias rose a penny an ounce. Standard being now 6s. 0$ and dollars 4s lid. Gold remains as before, at 31. 19s. Gd. Mr. Baring left towu on Friday for Paris, for the purpose, it is supposed, of the final ratifica tion of tlie new loan to Fiance. The advances, it is said, are upon such a system, that tlx whole may not be paid up perhaps before the expiration of two years ; but TO millions of francs being about a quarter of the lean, mus' be paid by the 1st of June of the present year. Requisitions have been signed for meetings of the Livery of London and Commou Council, forthe purpose of petitioning for a reduction of the present enormous and unconstitutional mil- itary establishment, an abolition of all sinecur places and unmerited pensions, retrenchment and economy in the public expenditure, and a constitutional reformation iu the representation of the people in parliament." It is now ascertained, beyond a doubt, tlial the number of the allied troops quartered upon France is to be forthwith reduced by the march- ing homeward of 30,000 men : of these 0000 arc British : and to this extent an immediate decrease in our military establishment will take place. Great Britain and France will thus be mutually relieved of the burdens of supporting British troops to the above amount. The Freeman's Journal asserts, that the Tri- nity College Board, Dublin, have recently come • to a resolution of expunging Locke's famous Treatise on Government from the College course. On Friday evening a ruffian thrust his hand through the window of Mr. Jarman, goldsmith, of the Strand, and although the proprietor was close enough to have seized the robber's hand, and the street was full of people ( it being as early as (> o'clock), he succeeded in stealing two aluable gold watches, with which lie got clear off, besides scattering into the street a tray of diamond rings, many bf'which are missing. This is the third robbery of the kind during the week Dreadful Catastrophe — Oil Friday evening, the 3d instant, about 11 o'clock, Mr. Cobbett, jun. of Kingston, having just retired to rest with his wife, to whom he had been married but a few weeks put an end to his existence by blow- ing his brains out with a pistol ( which he had previously concealed under his piliow. The horrid circumstance has occasioned his wife to be insensible ever since, and she is not expected to live. Coroner's Verdict— Insanity, The General Quarter Sessions of the Peace for the Western Division ofthis County commenced on Thurs- day last, at the Court- hail, in this towu, before the Right Hon. the Earl of Romney, and which are not expected to terminate till this evening ; these are the longest Sessions ever remembered, the calendar con taininga list of 102 petty offenders, the sentences of whom shall be given in our next. The General Session^ of the Peace for this town, were held yesterday at the Court- Hall, before the Mayor and Recorder, when John Spray, for Uttering and having in his possession base coin, Robert Tucker, for uttering the same, and John Bates for having it in his possession, were indicted and found guilty. The Court sentenced Spray and Bates to be, each, imprisoned 12 months, and Tucker 6 months in the Gaol of this town. On Thursday evening last, a Concert of Vocal and Instrumental Music was given at the Town- Hall, for the beuefit of Mr. Broughton, late of our Theatre, which was received with much applause by a numerous and respectable audience. Much credit is due to Miss Patterson for the ability with which she acquitted her - self in several favourite songs. Mr. Broughton also snng with much taste, particularly the " Sweet Little Shamrock"; nor " can we omit to notice the pleasing tenor voice of Mr. Sherenbeek, of Chatham, whose endeavours to please were much applauded. Providential escape.— On Tuesday last, the servant boy of the Rev. Mark Noble, at Barming, accidentally fell into a well upwards of 70 feet deep, and what is most remarkable, sustained ouly a slight bruise on the arm. Robbery.— In the evening of Tuesday last, a young man of the name of Wood, returning from this town to Linton, was stopped near Loose Hill, by two footpads, who robbed him of his watch and os. in money, with which they made off. ,* -'.. Two characters very notorious in London, are making a tour in all the neighbouring counties, for the purpose oflodging informations against the Clergy who omit to read the Act of Parliament to prevent cursing and swearing', which, hv law they are required to do, in their respective parish churches, ihe first Sunday after every quarter day. Daring Burglary.— Thursday night, abont seven o'clock, the house of Mr. Brown, a Collector of Taxes, near the Creek Bridge, Deptford, was broke open during the absence of the family, by two- athletic men, apparently sailors, who had no sooner commenced their pillage, than Mrs. Brown alone opened the street door, went in, and locked it after her. After she had struck a light, the villains rushed upon her, and pre- sented a pistol to her head, swearing that if she did not instantly shew them where her husband's collcction money was kept, they would blow her brains out. The poor woman, thus situated, led thein to an adjoining - oom to his desk, but to her no small gratification and their disappointment, there was 110 cash, it having been removed to a place of security. Thus disappointed, they proceeded to plunder the house of various articles of wearing apparel, and hav ing with bitter imprecations threatened future revenge if any alarm was given to the neighbours, they got clear off. Commitments to the County Gaol, since our last. John Rowland, charged with stealing at St. Paul, Deptford, sundry articles of wearing apparel, of the value of ^' 3 10s. the property of Stephen Howell.— James Smith, charged with stealing at Last Sutton, several loaves'of bread, the property of T. Boucher. Another instance of the melancholy effects of incau- tious attention to poisons accrued last week at Bra- bourne Lees. A child between two and three years old, the daughter of a shopkeeper of the name of Burt, during the absence of'its, parents, drank a quantity of oil of vitriol out of a bottle which it took from the shop window, from whence some Godfrey's Cordial had pre- viously been given to it, and notwithstanding medical aid was immediately procured, the innocent victim expired in great agony iu about twenty- one hours afterwards. Coroner's verdict— Accidental Death. On Wednesday last was rang, at Bromley, in Kent, by the society of Bromley youths, a complete peal of grandsire triples, which is 5,040 changes, with the bells muffled, in commemoration of William Chapman, de- ceased, being a ringer in the parish of Bromley 43 years; had called upwards of 69 peals: this dumb peal was c mpleted in 3 hours and6 minutes, conducted by John Allen. We insert the follow ing paragraph from the Farmers Journal, as at this time, Meat being retailed to the poor at a low priee, it gives thein an opportunity of turning the ssme to the best advantage. One of the most ( economical substitutes for bread, is the following very simple dish :— Take two pounds of meat prepared for a pye, ma* h a quantity of potatoes, and mix them up with mitk to the consistency of butter; pour it over 71 lie meat and sen:! it to the oven without a crust, ami thus prepared the meat will go much further tfnin . the usual way, and bread will be saved. Brighton, Jan. 1' J.— In the afternoon of yesterday the Earl of Westmoreland, the Earl of Harrowby, Viscount Sidmouth, Mr. Wellesey Pole, Mr. Sergeant Best, Mr. and Mrs. Arbuthnot, and Mr. Buller arrived at the Pavilion. The Cabinet Ministers were admitted to an audience of the Prince Regent as soon as they arrived. At half- past four o'clock a Privy Council assembled, which was attended by the Dukes of York and Clarence, the Cabinet Ministers, the Lord Steward, the Lord Chamberlain, Mr. Arbuthnot, Lord St. Helens, and the Attorney- General. The deliberations continued for an hour. After the Council broke up, the Cabinet Ministers and Privy Counsellor* dined with the Prince Regent Immediately after dinner Mr. W. Pole took bisdepar- ture for Loudon. The state of the silver currency, and the final arrangement of the topic} of the speech to the Legislature, are supposed to be tine principal business for the assembling of the Council. This morning the Grand Duke Nicholas and his suite, as also the French and Dutch Ambassadors, took leave ot'the Prince Regent, and departed for London between nine and ten o'clock. Yesterday morning the Duke of York, the Grand- Duke Nicholas, Prince Esterhazy, General Kutusoff, Baron Nicolai, and a numerous cavalcade from the Pavilion, enjoyed the diversion of hunting with the subscription pack of harriers, which threw off from the race course. The Grand- Duke did not pursue the sport for any length of time, but continued riding about the hills. Prince Esterhazy followed the hounds, and was the first horseman in at the death, after a run of more than an hour. A second hare was started, and the Prince again beat all the field sportsmen. The Prince Regent joined the party on their return from the hunt. PORT WINES of that truly fine Vintage 1815, at 38s. per doz.— ditto Vintage 1812, at 42s. per doz. T. R. A.

MURDER OF LIEUT. JOHNSON. Thames Police Office.— Raines was on Saturday brought up. The trial of Hatton, upon the charge ot felony, having been expected at the Old Bailey, that prisoner and Giddons were not at the office. Mr. Price produced a very important witness in favour of the prisoner. This was the Mrs. Potter of wliem Raines had spoken as one who could prove that Gid- dons wrist was in its present condition twelve years ago. The Magistrate desired her to reflect upon the testimony she was about to give with peculiar care. Mrs. Potter said, that her evidence could do nobody- harm, and invoked the spirit of her husband, who was drowned two days after the murder, to witness the truth of I'cr allegation. The dreadful fate of her hus- band, she said, gave additional force to her memory; she never heard of any one who were suspected of the crime, until she learned from the newspapers . that an accomplice had turned King's evidence, and declared Raines and Hattou principals in the murder. She was surprised at the charge. Mr. Kinnaird—" Doyon know any thing of Giddons' wrist ?" Mrs. Potter— I beard him say, in the year 1807, that his wrist would be a protection to him." Mr. Kinnaird—" What do you mean by protection ?" Mrs. Potter—" I don'l know any more than I say. It was in going to work where there was danger of a press that I heard him say so." Mr. Kinnaird—" You pe- remptorily say that Giddons spoke in this manner of his wrist?" Mrs. Potter—" I would not tell a false- hood on this subject for my precious grandfather." Mr. Kinnaird—" You need not go so high in your generation." Mrs. Potter here stated that she remem- bered the circumstance whieh she mentioned as hav- ing occurred in 1807, in consequence of the civility of Giddons and Hatton to her in the absence of her hus band, during the following year. She knew Raines by sight a long time, but no further. Raines-" When Giddons worked with me 11 years ago, his wrist was as it is now. We worked on board an East Indiaman, lying down the river, and he was brought to this office for stealing tea. I remember I was very near mischief for telling the people who brought him here that he was a poor man with a wife and children. He went then by the name of Gardiner. The officers threatened me for taking his part. The scoundrel got away, and told me that he got off with a fine of 20s. One of the Clerks examined the books of 1806, 7, and 8, but found no record of the charge alluded to by Raines. Jacob Kohler, a German, with whom Raines lodged at the time of the murder, said he did not recollect the absence of Raines npon any one i> ight from the begin- ning of January to June, 1809; that Raines always appeared a fair dealing man and regular in his habits. Raines—" The only night I ever slept out of your house, white I was yonr lodger, was the Saturday night before Palm Sunday. Your Worship will re- member the scoundrel said I was with him several days." Mr. Kinnaird—" I will most willingly listen to any thing calculated to show your innocence. Some cir- cumstances which have come out this day unques- tionably are favourable to yo'ti." Remanded till next Saturday. The establishment of the OfficS beJongiug to the Treasury of the Navy in Sheerness dockyard, for pav- ing the ships, artificers, i^ e. lias been reduced, and only one clerk now remains for the performance, of the duties. The enlargement and improvement of Shecr- ness dock- yard is rapidly proceeding ; and it is sup- posed that when the whole of the extensive works ace completed, the facilities and advantages resulting from them in the speedy equipment and refitting of the men of war will prove highly advantageous to the pnblic interest, particularly should this country unfortunately be involved again in war. The workmen are convicts, for whose accommodation the Zealand and ai.- other vessel ot war have been appropriated, with suitable establishments of officers, mates, overseers, &: c. The number of convicts is said to be nearly 1000. Th » barracks at Sheerness within these few months have been enlarged, from the circumstance of an additional number of soldiers being stationed there, and also for the reception of those that escort the convicts from the several gaols of the kingdom. It would, perhaps, b ® proper, at this period of general want of employment by the discharged seamen and soldiers, that they should be permitted to carry on the public works, and also that many of the industrious labourers who are now compelled to be idle should participate.

Singular Occurrence— On Thursday, the 2d instant, the body of a woman was found tied to a boat near the I' landing place of the Royal Hospital at Greenwich, on which ail inquest was held on the following Saturday, before Joseph Carttar, esq. one of the coroners for Kent. The evidence being very vague-, the coroner said he should not then close the inquest, but adjourn until the Tuesday following, in order that every exertion might be made to procure better information, as there was much suspicion in the case, and it was but seldom that a woman was found dead without somebody being able to give an account of her death. He also directed that the body should be examined hy a surgeon, that his opinion might be given on certain external marks which appeared on it. The jury accordingly met again on Tuesday, when several persons came forward to identify the deceased, aud among the rest an old man, who swore that the deceased was his daughter, and that she was the wife of Israel Friday, au out- pen sioner of Greenwich College. He then went into a long account of a quarrel which took place between Friday and his wife,, on Wednesday the 1st January, and of theii fighting in his house with a knife and a hatchet, which light he with difficulty suppressed, aud that soon afterwards both parties left the house, and he had not been able to hear of either of them since, ex- cept that lie now believed the deceased to be his daugh- ter, aud J'nit she had been murdered by somebody, and laid the spot where the body wits found. Other Wit- nesses also swore to Hie deceased being the daughter of the old man. The surgeons proved that there were marks of violence on the head, ( f the deceased, but not sufficient to be deemed mortal. This evidence, however, induced the Coroner to adjourn a second time - and he directed the constables to make diligent search after Friday, the husband, and bring him before the jury on the lOiii instant, to account tor bis wife's death, if possible. The jury accordingly met again on the 10th instant, when the constables reported that they had not been able to find Friday, but they had found his wife alive and hearty; whereupon the father was sent for, and the oilier witnesses, all of whom were greatly but agreeably surprised at the sight of the woman, and acknowledged their error in having sworn to the deceased. The Coroner reprimanded the wit- nesses severely for their want of discrimination ; but every one allowed, that the great likeness there was between the living woman and the deceased might have deceived better judges than the witnesses seemed to be, particularly as both the women had similar private marks on each arm. Under these circumstances fur- ther proclamation was made for evidence to identify the deceased, and discover how she came by her death; but none appearing, the jury returned a verdict of " Found dead, under suspicions circumstances, and with strong marks of violence on her person, but whe- ther indicted Uj accident or by design, they could not ascertain."
