ROYAL TOMBS IN FRANCE. PARIS, JAN. 17.— The bad weather has inter- rupted the researches madeunder the ancient chapel of the Valois. Yesterday, however, about four o'clock, a body was discovered, the, irregular posi- tion of which shewed that it had been thrown in and not deposited in the customary mode. This leads to an opinion, that the opening of one of the vaults had been found, and that the body discovered is the last, which the cannibals had placed there during the violation of the Royal tombs. The Commissaries named by the King follow with exactness the operations which began three days since, and which proceed slowly, on account of the respect with which they are conducted. New searches have been made, and several witnesses have been heard. They expect at St. Denis the body of Louis VII. called The Young, who died at Paris, Sept. 18, 1180. This body had been deposited in the Royal Abbey of Barbeaux, where his statue and tomb were seen before the Revolution. Both were then broken. The body of the Queen Louisa of Lorraine was brought to St. Denis, at seven in the evening of the 16th, in a carriage drawn by eight horses. Eacli of the gardes du corps held a torch in his band. The Church of St. Denis was covered with black, and lighted up. After the funeral service, the body was deposited near the remains of Louis XVI. and his august spouse. The ceremony was not over before nine iu the evening. EVERY MAN HIS OWN DOCTOR, BV THE USE OF BR.

This gave rise to an animated discussion, in which several of the members expressed their fears that the Registry Bill was only a pretence to enable Ministers tQ legislate generally for the island. The Speaker of the House advised them to adopt the measure nuder consideration, as the most, effectual means of finally pitting to rest the Registry Bill. Mr. Barret expressed his conviction, that the Prince Regent wuld hot permit Ministers, through the medium of Parliamentary power, to rob the House of As einhly of ils political rights; he would be too j<- aloUs of uftrugaiirt* to do so.

Jamaica papers have arrived to the ls't of De- cember. The proceedings of the House of Assem- bly constitute the chief feature of interest w hich they present.— On the 19th of November Mr. Kinhead presented a Petition from several free persons of colour for an extension of their privi- leges. The House having gone into a Committee, upon the Petition, passed Resolutions to the follow- ing effect.— 1st. That the free people of colour in Jamaica had no right or claim whatever to political power, or to interfere in the administration of the Government, as by law established in the Governor, Council, and Assembly. 2d. That in granting such privileges as had been already bestowed, the Assembly confidently expected that they would have been received with gratitude, and have secured from the free people of colour their continued and cheerful acquiescence in, and obedience to, that system of laws which it was their interest as well as their duty to maintain. The lid Resolution strongly expressed the Assembly's disapprobation of the Petition, and declared that the same should be rejected. It at the same time made an excep- tion from censure with regard to those free people of colour who were known to differ in opinion from the petitioners. The Committee then passed Re- solutions, recommending the bringing iu a Bill for the more effectual prevention of the clandestine or illicit importation of slaves from Africa or else- where, and a Bill for ascertaining from time to time the exact number of slaves in Jamaica. The. latter Bill was accordingly brought in ou the 21st of November, read a first time, and ordered to be printed. On the preceding day several Resolutions were passed for the better regulation of the moral and religions duties of the slavss. On the 28th the Slave Enumeration Bill was read a second time, and after a discussion of some length, a motion was carried for its committal. Mr. Scarlet pro- posed an amendment to the preamble, implying that the apprehensions entertained hereof an illicit traffic in slaves were unfounded; but that the LC- NEW SILVER COINAGE.

NOTICE— NEW SILVER COINAGE. ROYAL MINT, Jan. 1817. The New Silver Coinage being now wry nearly finished, arrangements are making for enabling all bis Majesty's subjects in even part of ( Jrcnt Britain to exchange, at the same period, the old for the new silver coin of thi; realm. This Ptii'nge will com- mence on or before Monday, I tie 3 I of February next; and all standard silver coin of the realm, however defaced or reduced in weight, by use, will be received in exchange for the new coin, by lab-, at its nominal value. The Public arp requested to o1 serve, that the new silver coin to issued from ! iis Majesty's Mint, upon this occasion, will be delivered ' ji exchange to the holders of the old com. It is ' berefore stron » ly re- commended, that all silver COM of » lit; realm, however defaced or reduced in weight, by use, which is now in circulation, shouid continue to l; e given and re- ceived in payment, for the very short period that wiil elapse before I he issue of the new silver coin. By this means no interruption iu tiie circulation will arise. - NOTE.— The Old Silver Coin of ihe Realm, how- ever defaced or reduced in weight, by use, is received in payments, at ils nominal value, by all Branches of the Revenue, and at Ihe Bank of England, and will continue to be so until it is exchanged for Ihe new silver coinage. ( Signed) W. W. POLE, Master and Worker of his . Majesty's Mint The plan for a simultaneous delivery and ex- change of the new silver coin for the old was finally arranged at the Hank on Friday last. Mr. W. Pole met there til- Governor and Directors, together with several bankers in the city, who had been con- vened ou the occasion. He represented to them, that Government was desirous thai the exchange of the new silver coin for the old should be attended with the least possible inconvenience to the public: with this view it would, he conceived, be expedient to make arrangements for enabling all his Majesty's subjects iu every part of Great Britain to exchange at the same period the old for the new silver coin of the realm; This exchange the Government would be ready to make on or before the 3d of February. On the subject undergoing some dis- cussion, it was considered that the object would be most easily attained through the medium of the couutry bankers, provided they cptl'd be prevailed upon to undertake the business. No doubt being entertained on this head, it wns agreed that applica- tion should be made to them for lhat purpose. On the next day ( Saturday) a private meeting was held by the bankers in town, and Certain resolutions were cotne to, expressive of the object in contemplation. By the same night's post printed copies of the reso- lutions were forwarded to all Ihe. country bankers in the principal towns in the kingdom, with strong recommendations to forward the object of Govern- ment in the exchange of the new coinage. It was further arranged, that Government were to furnish all the Inspectors of Coin th, t could be spared, to assist in making the exchange in the great provin- cial towns ; and where there was any d> ficieucy in this respect, it was hoped the bankers would supply it, by permitting the Cashier of the house'to aUend on the behalf of Government. In the event of any disappointment on the part of the cou'itry bankers, the Mayor of ihe town would be requested to under- take the matter; and in failure of the Chief Magis- trate, the business was to be resigned into the hands of the Postmaster of the place. ON AN IMPROVEMENT PROPOSED IN AGRICULTURE. [ FROM TIIE MORNING POST.] In August last, a Gentleman in the northern part of Ireland, engaged in a scientific research on the comparative geology of ihe two United Islands, was led by the observation and alarm he felt from the then state of the growing, but unripening crops of grain ; and by the estimate he made of the western winds, clouds, rain, humid and sunless atmosphere of the whole summer, to conclude that Great Britain, and great part of the Continent of Europe, would suffer the calamity of the injury or loss of a large part of the harvest of all corn. On the 8th August he wrote to London on these topics, aud offered to shew the use, value, and economy in our tillage of an implement unknown in Europe, though for ages used with the best effect in China, which, with one horse, and any common field labourer, is capable to perform at one opera- tion, and with advantage, the offices of the plough, harrow, scarifier, and roller, on all lands, at all times,' wet or dry. He offered also the discovery of ( he fertilizing ingredient for all soils and all crops, used for time immemorial in China, composted with the common earth of all soils, and used as manure and top- dressing for three crops, which he promised could be prepared in sufficiency for all lands at the very small expence of 10s. per acre, or 3s. 4d. only for each crop ; the wood and iron, and making of the implement, to cost a trifle less or more than 51. He has published since that time many explana- tions, directions, and assurances of his confidence in his proposals and recommendations— his dis- interested refusal of all plans of personal profit in the implements or preparation of the material of manure. Not to lose time, he has established a preparation of this material at a large expence, and is providing above one hundred of the implements at his own expence of a considerable sum, to take no profit therefrom. The effect of this fertilizing manure or top- dressing is to produce an increase of all crops, in the quantity of eight to twelve bushels per acre, and to accelerate their ripening, in ordiuary sea- sons, two to four weeks earlier!— He recommends earnestly to the agricultural and farming part of the pubiic, to extend all they can the breadth of. the planting of potatoes this spring, and to pre- pare such land with this implement, and top- dress with this manure, to prove ils use and powe, r, and benefit on this crop. An attention of extended pare and application to spring wheat this season, may also be found indispensable to the ease and safety of the country, ou which he entreats these improvements to he very generally experimented! He depends that the implements and the material can yet be ready in time for the land, and for plant- ing of potatoes and sowing of spring wheat— there islittle cost, and nothing risked, and nothing asked, and much economy, and the insurance of ihe bene- fit of great increase. Supposing all other things the same, and plenty of home- grown food desirable ( which politicians and financiers must determine) the estimate of the benefit, advantage, or profit of this projection of improvement, in economy of labour and expence, and increase of produce, with their riches, may be fairly estimated at forly to fifty millions sterling in mere money, supposing the practice general, and the increase on crops what is promised The atten- tion and scrutiny of the most prudent and scientific agriculturists is solicited ; that of the most intelli- gent and experienced farmers is desired and earnestly sought for at once. Cannot twenty such persons be found in each county to make this experiment on all cro^ s, and on all soils, at once in a liberal manner ?— No selfish reserve, or side- wind advantage is intended. The slate of the season and of the country should urge to every prudent, rational effort. The opinion and suggestions of any official, or associated agricultural body or deputation, ou the best manner of making this public, and at once generally useful, will be candidly and respectfully attended lo. His Majesty's Government and Noble Members of the Board . of Agriculture have all along bad no- tice of this offer of improvement. It is thought it has not yet been properly sub- mitted to the farming body, nor properly noticed for the general benefit of practice. It is most suitable to all those extensive inland, hill, and other districts, where manure is scarce of all kinds, or difficult and expensive of carriage: this is made on. each field of its own soil. The ingredient can be prepared, it is calculated, cheaper in quantity than by any person for his own use, and may have depots of preparation suitable to the wants of districts and to their convenience; aud public or private, as may hereafter be deemed most suitable to the public economy, benefit and security. A great objection has been started, that nothing has been asked for all this great aud general bene- fit and improvement— no manufactory proposed, no Company in shares, no Agency, or Body of Commissioners;— all this, the public discretion may determine onhereafter. Does any thing hinder, or can the generous and high minded proposer be expected to refuse a national, parliamentary and ade- quate remuneration, after the great benefits offered shall be proved and enjoyed by them, or possessed, at least ? Need any man, after the merits of Water- loo aud the generous acknowledgment of them by the whole of this wide- spread empire, be in doubt or fear of national liberality ? Though the field of exertion be of another kiud, the valu. of the service is not the less. A greater objection may be made to this propo- sal, that it is offered to suit all soils and all growths ; if it would serve to place some soils only iu a condi- tion of increased and preferable cultivation, it would soon attract a special attention, and an associated support; if this be a disadvantage, the blame must be charged to the chemistry of nature, and not to any want of ingenuity of the worthy proposer, who does not assume to invent or to discover, but only to lay open to us the secrets of a practice of more than a thousand years of habit and success, with a people who ploughed their own soil, before we had cast off our hair, and covered our skins, and who feed two hundred to three hundred millions of inge- nious people, much greater conjurors than we are, in most matters; a people from whom we learned to make gunpowder, that most valuable secret to make corn cheap and plenty iu any country. January 7,1817. II. To the EDITOR of THE COLCHESTER GAZETTE SIR— Permit me, as a practical farmer, to make a few observations on a most extraordinary account of advantages'held out to your country readers, under the name of Mr. William Forbes, ( published in the Morning Post, and other Papers.) These most magnificent pretensions are, the cheap per- formance of, at one operation, the offices of the plough, harrow, scarifier, aud roller, on all lands, at all times, wet or dry. The discovery of a ferti- lizing ingredient for all soils aud all crops, to be derived from the soil itself, at the very small ex- pence of ten shillings per acre, which is to produce an increase of all crops, at the rate of eight oh twelve bushels- per acre, and an earlier hartest by three or four weeks, the aggregate profit fairly esti- mable at forty or fifty millions of mere money— so much this illustrious patriot offers to his country, void of any stipulation for fee or reward! A pott, who had described the most splendid and gorguous edifices in his works, having built for himself a modest, durable, and useful mansion, being asked how he, of aft others, could be contented with such, replied, it was far cheaper to build on paper, than with brick and stone. Some such answer, 1 should really expect from Mr. Forbes, after he bad made actual trial of his proposed agricultural edifice.—• He tells us all these wonderful things may be uoue> appealing to our faith, instead of the evidence of our better senses. How much preferable. il would have been to have expended that money on actual appli- cation and experiment, which his preparations have cost him ! He might then have appealed to our sight and our touch, the only true conductors of faith.— He should not have attempted to throw The onus upon us, but have borne it himself. Wonders, to be sure, have a natural attraction, a sort of chemi- cal affinity to the credulity of man, and Mr. F. is not deficient in them; for if he has not discovered the philosopher's stone, the perpetual motion, or framed an union between time and power, he has, it seems, found a single implement apt for all purposes, a manure for all crops* aud a practice for all seasons, wet or dry ; yet somehow or other, these are crams so enormous, that the most credu- lous and willing feel themselves unable to swallow them. Another disadvantage to patriotic disco- verers is, our swallowing capacity lias been So ollen put to the test. How much credit Mr. F. ought to derive from his prototypes being Chinese, 1 leave to those of better information than my own to de- cide ; but from the latest and most authentic ac- counts, the agriculture of that vast country, com- pared with the European, is really contemptible, and their implements the most unwieldly and bung- ling that can be conceived. ' Ihe day ot Missionary fables in China is long since past, " lo descend from Ihe altitude of Mr. F. to the inferior level of my own understanding— is he aware lhat within the last two hundred years, implements, perforniiifg at once various operations, have been repeatedly tried with the most sanguine expectations, aud as ollen laid aside, as useless and unprofitable ? Finally, in- stead of joining Mr. F. in counselling farmers to extend all they can the breadth of potatoes in ihe ensuing spring, 1 shall venture to give, them the di-* rectly opposite advice, and 1 conceive on just and rational grounds, namely, to plant fewer potatoes and more spring wheat.

The physicians, they pretend, have pronounced that dropsy has taken place, and the ease is hopeless. The Russian Ambassador is stated to have de- livered to the French Ministry a Note relative to the conduct of France towards Sweden. The Emperor Alexander, it is said, complains very seriously of the manner in which the Crown Prince is treated. He observes that Bernadotte bad sincerely and honourably joined the Alliance, and powerfully Contributed to the decision of the great day at Leipzic ; that all the Monarchs recognise him as the heir to the Swedish throne ; and that the most amicable relations subsist between that State and Russia; lastly, the Emperor requests the French Court to treat Bernadotte conformably to his dignity, and to send an Ambassador to Stockholm. Among the jewels which Madame Murat is about to expose to public sale, is a single row of black pearls, for which, it is said, the Empress of Austria has offered 5000 ducats, in order to present it to the Treasury Museum at Vienna. A Mail from Holland furnishes us with an addi- tional proof of the good effects of our late vigorous proceedings in regard to the Barbary Powers.— The reparation of the insult offered to the Anglo- Hanoverian flag by a Tripolitan corsair, is con- firmed. As soon as the prize was seen in the port of Tripoli by the British Consul, with her colours only half way Bp to the top- gallant- mast, he took down his British flag, and instantly repaired to the Dey to complain of the insult. The vessel was immediately set at liberty. In less than half an hour the Captain of the corsair was hanged at his own roast, and a salute was fired from the Dey of Tripoli's fleet. By private letters of the 23d from New York, we learn that Christophe had fallen under the dis- pleasure of the American Government; and it was said, that preparations were making in America to send out a frigate to demand of him the payment Of about 500,000 dollars, the estimated amount of his spoliations upon the American commerce. United States papers to the 24th ult. afford grounds for apprehension that the importations of grain from America into this country, so generally and so confidently relied upon, will not be effected to the extent expected. The National Intelligencer does not scruple to proclaim the serious distress caused among the poorer classes by the scarcity of corn, and earnestly recommends the adoption of measures for diminishing the consumption. The failure of the harvest in the United States appears to have been much greater than we have been led to believe from the former accounts; and some of the sufferers have gone so far as to call for a Legis- lative Act to prevent the temporary exportation of grain. Amongst the petitions recently presented to the House of Representatives was one from number of the inhabitants of Hartford county, Maryland, staling the almost total failure of the crops of corn, their inability to provide it in suffi- cient quantities for their support, and praying the interposition of Congress, by a temporary prohibi- tion of the exportation of grain. This petition, which was laid before the House on the 13th, was referred to the Committee of Commerce and Ma- nufactures, but had given rise to no proceedings up to the 19th. The following Circular has been addressed to the Ministerial Members of the House of Commons:— Downing- street, Jan. 1- 4, 1817. SIR— As it appears to be quite certain that ail Amend- ment is to be move ! to the Address, and that a Division will take place, I think it right to give you the informa- tion, and at the same time to beg the favour of you, very earnestly, to attend in the House on the first day of the Session. I should not have troubled you upon this occa- sion, if any doubt had remained in respect to the intention of the Opposition. I have the honour to be, Sir, yours faithfully, ( Signed) C. ARBUTHNOT. Mr. Baring left town on Friday for Paris, for the purpose, it is supposed, of the final ratification of the new Loan to France. The advances, it is said, are upon such a system, that the whole may not be paid up perhaps before the expiration of two years; but seventy millions of francs, being about a quarter of the Loan, must be paid by the 1st of June of the present year. HAMPDEN CLUB.— On Saturday a Meeting of several of the Gentlemen composing the Hampden Club was held at the Freemasons' Tavern, Great Queen- street, for the purpose of taking into con- sideration the form of a Bill on the subject of Par- liamentary Reform, to be submitted in February next, for the approbation of a General Meeting, in the event of its receiving which, it will be pre- sented to Parliament forthwith by Sir F. Burdett The draft of this Bill, which has been prepared embraces the whole of the popular topics con- nected with the question of Reform in the most detailed arrangement. The Meeting of Saturday being merely of a preliminary nature, and for the purpose of preparing the Bill, was open only to the Members of the Club. By the arrival at Brighton of the Ann and Eliza- beth packet, Captain Daniels, from Dieppe, we learn the result of the trial of the Custom- house Officers at Rouen, for the murder of Captain Par tridge, of the Nancy packet, of Dieppe, by wan- tonly filing upon the crew, when in the act of boarding her. Two of the offenders have been found guilty, and sentenced to two months' impri. sonment, and to pay a fine of 3,000 francs each. A few days since as Mr. Bullock was going from Liverpool to Ireland with the celebrated carriage kc. of the Ex- Emperor of France, to exhibit there the whole was detained by the Officer of the Cus toms, being deemed foreign manufactures; but for which Mr. Bullock declined paying, and ap- plied to the Lords of the Treasury, who, after takin^ the whole of the circumstances into consideration ordered them to pass free. A hackney- coachman in Paris, of the name of Petit, lately found in his coach a draft upon the Bank of France for 0000 livres, which he restored to the person who had lost it. He was handsomely rewarded for his integrity. This is the second ' instance of the same sort, mentioned in the Paris papers, within a few months. FRAUD.— The inhabitants of Newington, Surrey, were defrauded last week by a fellow, who pre- tended that he was a Member of a charitable Com- mittee, and that lie was calling on the inhabitants for a subscription extra, to enable the Committee to purchase flour, coals, & c. in a great quantity, a, nd which would be distributed to those who sub- scribed it half price. He had furnished himself with books containing the names of popular per- sons in the parish, and obtained in Mansign- House- street alone, 31. JO*, in small sums. The Royal Commission of Quarantine at Copen- hagenhave published a Report in which they state, that according to the official news the plague has ceased at the islands of Martinique, Guadaloupe, and Antigua. v. A letter, dated Plymouth, Jan. 20, contains the following melancholy intelligence :— Last night it blew the most tremendous gale from the S. E. to the S. S. W. that was ever remembered here, and has been productive of great damage among the ship- ping. The Jasper sloop of war broke from her ca- ble in the night, find drove on shore on the Point of Mount Batten, at the entrance of Catwater, and all her crew, upwards of eighty in number; except a sailor and a marine, perished.— She must have gone to pieces soon after she struck.— The Princess Mary packet, of Falmouth, Captain Pocock, that arrived from the West Indies a few days since, is totally lost in Deadman's Bay. The master, his wife, and two children, who had come over on Saturday last to see him, together with six of her crew, are drowned.— The Telegraph schooner is totally lost on the rocks off the Hoes, One man only drowned : the Surgeon has both his thighs broken, and seve- ral of the crew with broken limbs, are now . carrying to the Royal Hospital. — The Lapwing Revenue cutter is on shore and bilged, in Mill Bay, but will be got off if the weather abates. Crew saved — The sloop Farmers' Delight is lost on Mount. Batten. Crew saved. — Two houses are washed down at Cawsand, and nineteen boats are missing from the bay. Several vessels that were building and repairing, are blown and washed off the stocks, by the extreme high tide, with a great variety of other accidents among the shipping in the harbour. The warehouses, the quays, and the wharfs have suffered much. A gentleman, of the name of Graham, it is stated, claims the title of Lord Cromwell, as lineal descendant of that Peer, who was beheaded by Henry VIII. from pique, in consequence of his having promoted the marriage of that Sovereign with Ann of Cleves. Henry afterwards reversed the attainder, and granted his heirs extensive estates ; among the rest the whole village of West- minster, great estates in Surrey and Norfolk, and large property in Scotland, including several Duke- doms.— He exhibits Henry's patent, and several other ancient documents, in support of his title. Friday the Grand Jury found a true bill against James Watson, jun. for shooting at Mr. Platt, with intent to kill. To this indictment, if he will not appear, it is said immediate proceedings will be MEETING OF DELEGATES FOR REFORM. A Meeting of Delegates from various Petitioning Bodies in Great Britain, for Reform in Parliament, was on Wednesday held at the Crown and Anchor. Mr. Hunt, Mr. Brookes, and Mr. Cobbett, were the Delegates from Westminster. The Country Delegates were principally from Bristol, Bath, Leicester, Bolton, Glasgow, Royton, Lougton, Stockport, Lynn, Norwich, Ashton- under- Line, Leigh, Lancaster, Manchester, Middleton, and Liverpool. Major Cartwright was the Dele- gate from Glasgow, as was Mr. Hunt from Bristol and Bath. The whole of the Delegates were under fifty. Major Cartwright was called to the Chair.— A deputation of two members introduced Mr. Jones Burdett from the Hampden Club, who laid before the Meeting the heads of a Bill, which it was in- tended in March next to lay before the whole body of that society, previously to its being submitted to Parliament. The projected Bill had recognized three material principles:— That the House of Commons should be elected by householders; that the counties and cities should be divided into elec- toral districts, each district returning one Member, according to its population; and that the elections should be annual. Major Cartwright observed, that though, in re- ference to the principles recognized by the Hamp- den Club, it was undeniable that, from the recent discussions of the great question of Reform, a general animation on the subject of universal suffrage had been evinced ; yet there were many men, sound Reformers, who still thought, that with a view to practicability and eventual success, it would be wrong to risque the loss of principles, calculated in their attainment to produce the very benefits that, prematurely urged, may endanger the whole. It was always to he borne in mind by Reformers that their adversaries would never op pose them upon principles— it was to refinements, to supposed innovations they would direct their attacks. It was therefore desirable not to clog the essentials of Reform with minutiae and refinements, that in the ultimate discussion would hang as a mill- stone upon them, and most probably endanger their success. Much must be left on these points to a reformed Parliament. A series of Resolutions, in conformity with the proposed Bill, were then read; which, with some amendments, were adopted. Among the amend- ments one was, that electors should vote by ballot, THE COLCHESTER GAZETTE. instituted against him as an outlaw. The ale- brewers have given notice to their cus- tomers of raising the price of that beverage 10s. per barrel. Amber is also to experience an advance. IMPORTANT SAVING.— In the return to the order of the House of Commons to ascertain the in- crease and dimunition of Salaries in the Isle of Man, the Receiver- General states, that in the Civil Establishment there was, in the year 181G, an " actual diminution" 01 eleven shillings and one penny. It is not for want of vigilance in the Officers of the Revenue Departments that its amount has diminished : a poor man was convicted a few days ago, under the Hawker's and Pedlar's Act, and fined for selling common sand without a licence. About eleven o'clock on the night of Thursday se'nnight, the shock of an earthquake was dis- tinctly felt throughout the town of Mansfield, and all the adjacent villages. Mr. Maltby, a banker of that place, observed the phenomenon, and his servants sprung from their beds under an alarm that the house was falling. Many other persons also left their beds in terror. An information was laid last week, by J. Field, of Staines, and another informer, against three medical gentlemen of Amesbury, Wilts, for selling spirit of wine without a retail spirit licence. The Magistrate at Salisbury decided against the in- formers, on the ground that spirit of wine is a medicine, and adjured them, if they laid " claim to the appellation of Christians, never again to engage in so infamous and so wicked a transaction." An inquisition was taken on Monday, at the Plough, Kensell Green, in the parish of Wilsden, upon the body of John Nicholls, who was found drowned. The deceased was found in the Canal at Wilsden by a boatman; he was quite dead. There was a cut over his left eye, caused, it is sup- posed, by a boat passing over his body when in the water. There were five shillings in silver in his pocket.— John King, watch- house keeper of St. George's, Hanover- square, said, that on the Saturday previous to his death the deceased was brought to the watch- house by the watchman. There was no specific charge against him. He was seen looking about in a suspicious manner. He talked at random. He said he lived in Chapel- court. He put his neck- handkerchief round his head, and said the Lord's Prayer; when he had finished, he said he was quite ready to be hanged; and from his whole behaviour in the watch- house witness was of opinion the deceased was deranged. Thomas Spencer, of Davies- street, Berkeley- square, said he had known the deceased twenty years; he formerly kept the Lion and Goat, in Lower Grosvenor- street. He believed deceased was not in his proper senses when he committed the act.— Verdict— Drowned himself in a fit of Insanity. ATTEMPT TO MURDER.— On the evening of Thursday se'nnight, as Hugh Hills, a man in the pay of the Customs, was sitting by his fire- side at Storrington, Sussex, some person came to the win- dow of his house, and with a gun, or other fire- arms, shot at him through the window. The bullet went through his body, yet he is likely to recover.— A reward of 5001. has been offered by the Board of Customs for the discovery or apprehension of the offender. On Monday last, about four o'clock in the morn- ing, died by his own hand, Mr. Francis Willson mercer and draper, of Plymouth, leaving a widow and five children to regret his untimely fate. The recent loss of his gallant brother, Captain Willson of the Royal Marines, in the bombardment of Al- giers, added to the pressure of embarrassments, by creating an extreme depression of spirits, are sup- posed to have led to this rash act. — The Jury brought in their verdict— Lunacy. BOW- STREET.— Wednesday a long examination took place before Mr. Birnie, respecting the case of a gentleman hitherto considered of the highest respectability, at Westwell, near Ashford, in Kent, and in other parts of the country, on charges of forgeries to a considerable extent at the Bank of England.— The prisoner, and a gentleman of the name of William Crispe, had been appointed exe- cutors to Mr. William Crispe, deceased; and the prisoner is charged with selling out stock in the public funds, invested in the joint names of him- self and Mr. Crispe, without the knowledge or consent of the latter, by means of forging Mr. Crispe's name to the transfers.— The prisoner was fully committed for trial. NEW VOYAGE OF DISCOVERY.— The French Government are fitting out two vessels for the pur- pose, it is said, of proceeding to the Southern Hemisphere, to determine the true situation of that part of the globe. The command of the expedi- tion is given to Monsieur Freycinet, who served as Lieutenant de Vaisseau with M. Baudin, in Le Geographe frigate, in the voyage ( accompanied by Le Naturaliste) in 1801, 1802, 1803, and 1804, to New Holland. Several persons of abilities, as engineers, naturalists, astronomers, & c. are to ac- company M. Freycinet. Among the orders received for the linen and da- mask manufactures of Bielfield, 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, my cause, and my sword." Besides these orders, large purchases have been made in Bremen, and the other Hanseatic cities; for the Queen of Hayti, of services for the table, brilliants, pearls, & c. which have been paid for in ready money, at high prices. King Christophe 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 re- quested her to come to him, that he might testify his gratitude to her, for the humane and generous treatment he experienced from her in his condition of slavery. This demand not having been ac- cepted, he again requested the widow to send him at least her son, that he might through him repay his debt of gratitude. Notwithstanding the calamities, says a French paper, which have weighed upon France, the zeal of the disseminators of vaccination has not di- minished. In 76 departments, according to the return, out of 620,044 children born in 1815, 251,110 have been vaccinated. GERMAN PROPHETS.— A letter from Frankfort contains the following details:—" The prophet Adam Muller has returned here from Berlin. He pretends that his Majesty the King of Prussia has made him a present of a gold snuff- box, but as he refuses to shew it, no one believes him. He con- tinues uttering his prophecies, each one more absurd than the former ; and persons who are per- haps better prophets than he is, have predicted that he would finish by being sent to a mad- house.- A German prophet, named Schneider, has just been arrested at Vienna, it is said, for a cheat." FORGERY.— At Marlborough- street, on Thurs- day, Alexander Campbell was charged with forging the acceptances of two Bills of Exchange, one of 201. and the other of 301. purporting to have been accepted by Cox and Greenwood. The bills were drawn by the prisoner, who is an officer in the army, and on the first, dated January 20, he re- ceived cash, after deducting a trivial purchase, of Mr. Ariel, No. 20, Cirencester- street, Fitzroy- square. The person who 1 shed the bill for Mr, Ariel, discovered it to be a forgery, as the names of the acceptors were not in blue ink, according to their custom of signing. Between the time of the inquiry as to the certainty of the forgery, the pri- soner presented the second bill to Mr. Ariel, to get it discounted. Mr. A. aware of the suspicion as to the former bill, kept it, and desired the prisoner to call at a certain time to see what could be done.— In the interim the army agents had declared the forgery. Plank, the officer, took him into custody, At the Office the prisoner wrote a letter to a friend completely confessing his guilt, urging the cle- mency of the parties injured, and stating his in tentions to have honoured the bills when due. The prisoner was remanded for another examination An inquisition was held on Tuesday, at the Kin_ of Denmark, in Wapping- street, on the body of William Cursley, who was cook of the ship Betsey lying in the Commercial Docks. The deceased had been employed in cleaning the cabins in the forecastle of the ship, while the crew were in bed The Captain heard something strike against the boat which was alongside of the ship; which alarm- ing him, he got up, and found the deceased had fallen overboard. The night was dark, and it was im- possible to render him any assistance. The Cap- tain had spoken to him about an hour before. No person was on deck at the time but the deceased. He was twenty years of age, and a native of Brid- port. Verdict— Accidentally drowned. The foreign journals, . received in the course of the week, detail, with some appearance of authen- ticity, the proceedings which have taken place in France between the Ministers of that kingdom and those of the Allies, relative to a suspension of pay- ments of the stipulated Contributions. France declares her inability, from temporary causes, to pay them during the months of January and Fe- bruary, although the bons, or bills, for those months have been already issued, and may be in circulation. It appears, as stated by the same article, that out of twenty- three millions of francs, the amount of these Contributions, only five are in circulation; and that France has, in consequence of that information, restricted her request to a suspension of payment of the sum not circulated till Midsummer. It is not said whether this ar- rangement has been acceded to or not; but as the first instalment of the Loan, to tire amount of seventy millions, is to be advanced by the 1st of June, it is not improbable that it is destined to the discharge of the arrears which will thus accrue during the two following months. In this supposed arrangement there appears nothing of importance to us, provided the delay of the payments does not subject our Treasury to the even temporary advance; and admitting the posi- tive inability of France to continue uninterruptedly her obligations, the Loan made in this country, however unpalatable to the anti- ministerial oracle, will afford some tangible means of security for the ultimate discharge of our demands. The whole of the last week has teemed with pros and cons on this said Loan. We can neither pride ourselves on the proof it affords of our exu- berance of wealth, nor join in extravagant and unfounded charges against those who, we thank God, have no power to prevent the injury, however great, - in a national view, it may in truth be. A body of merchants have been pleased to lend a sum of money to France— they have lent no part of the public funds; and although we may regret their folly, or lament the want of sufficient pa- triotism to devote it, at half its promised profit, to our necessities at home, neither Ministers nor the people have any power to restrain them from the more ruinous scheme, perhaps, of lending it to the sea.— We must, while we read' the different com- ments, remember the daily exercise Of talents which is required; and connecting with this obligation the dismal dearth of any thing but private calamity to dilate on, we may attribute much of both accu- sation and defence to the skill of extracting from barrenness materials sufficiently animating to gra tify, in their various provinces,- the public taste. The day is not far distant when these feathers will be forsaken, and objects of the greatest weight demand their place. Next week the Parliament assembles ; and as no part of our history offers any parallel to the immeasurable difficulties with which we are surrounded, no sessions have ever com- menced with equal interest to all the classes of the State. We know not what measures are to he resorted to, nor are we anxious to anticipate. We are aware that great and grand designs were never more essential, and we are inclined to hope and believe there is neither a want of will nor power to save our venerable and exalted, though encumbered, State. We expect, fully expect, that great as our necessities are, they will be faithfully and manfully stated from the Throne. Timidity will not avail in the hour of real peril, and the calls of want are too clamorous for the voice of caution to suppress. It will be a consolation to know that the Govern- ment feel the difficulties under which we labour, and so far from producing despondency or fear, it will assure us that no sacrifices within the reach of Authority will be withheld to assist the general cause. We shall thus have a wide field for real patriotism to act in; and we confidently think many of those who have been outrageously stigmatized for enjoying the granted munificence of the Crown, will not persist in a right, while they admit their country is sinking under its ponderous load.— With moderation and temper, all things will com- bine to further the public good ; not an idle and noisy cavil about shadows, when substance, real substance, is the boon we ask— not a quixotic ex- planation of supposed causes, which have nothing, in truth, to do with the effects we lament. Granting the most extended reform which the most enthu- siastic on that subject can wish, without plunder and confiscation, in what possible way , beyond the ability of the present, could the amended Parlia- ment give relief ? The interest of the debt must be paid, and all the claimants on Government; for a man's pension, when once granted, is as much his' right as any other property, while the Government which gave it exists. The army and navy must be supported; the revenue establishments continued; the dignity of the King upheld. And what is the extraordinary channel from which, by reform, we are to be saved?— Corruption. Corruption is the bugbear; as if, forgetting that although we have passed through a period of unexampled expendi- ture, there has been no one conviction, in the higher orders of authority, of such guilt. The Parliament is good enough for every thing which is essential to uphold the dignity of the Monarchy, the purity of justice, and the liberties of the people; and it is also good enough, we doubt not, to introduce whatever retrenchments may be neces- sary in our exhausted state. For these retrench- ments let us firmly pray ; not foolishly distract its attention by clamorous invectives against its form and purity ; and which, although for years the leading features of party, have never been acted on by the complainants when they were in power. The Paris papers of the 20tlr coti!-. n, at consi- derable length, the Report made to the Chamber of Deputies in the Sitting of Saturday, by M. Ravez, on the part of the Commission appointed to exa- mine the Project of Law relative to the public journals. M. Ravez does not hesitate to declare to France, that it would be altogether dangerous to her welfare to allow these publications to enjoy the freedom which has been extended on a recent occasion to works of a different nature. He pro- poses to continue for the present year the Jaw enacting that no newspapers nor periodical pro- ductions shall appear, unless Sanctioned by the Royal authority. — The special proposition sub- mitted to the Chamber, was the prolongation of the following article of the existing law:—" That the journals and periodical writings shall not ap- pear but by authority of the King."— M. Ravez assured the Chamber, that the Commission would most willingly have granted to the journals thai liberty which was enjoyed by all other works, had it been possible ; but, after long consideration, they were convinced, that the political situation of the country made it necessary those publications should remain for another year under the imme- diate inspection of the Government. The Prefect of the Department of the North of France has written letters to the different Mayors within his jurisdiction, recommending them, in the name of his Excellency the Minister of the Interior, not to oppose any obstacles to the in- dustry of foreign merchants and licenced dealers. He recalls to their recollection that excellent dis- position of the law, " Every citizen provided with a patent, may exercise bis profession or industry in of France;" and enjoins them not to iner- any part France;" and enjoins them not to inter- fere in determining either the commune they shall reside in, or the time of their slay ; and to give them every facility in the publication of their bilk and advertisements. The late plot at Bourdeaux, in which an obscure individual, of the name of Randon, was implicated, is now ascertained to have been in every point of view contemptible. The number of persons ar- rested there does not exceed twenty, even including the persons ( publicans and others) with whom Randon had lodged. Two men have been arrested in Indre and Loire; the one a surgeon in a small rural commune, the other a dismissed preceptor. At Nantz three men have been arrested, viz. a Lieutenant on half- pay, a teacher, and a quill- dresser. There have been no other arrests. A retired Chef d' Escadron was the highest rank of any person belonging to the army connected with the affair. Neither arms, means of execution, nor organization could any where be traced. The principal Chief ( Randon), had he not been arrested, must have been under the necessity of flying from Bourdeaux, as he had for about a fortnight been unable to pay the debts he contracted for his board and lodging. The Prefect of Bourdeaux, far from considering his life to be threatened, has repeated in public, as well as in all the reports he has made 011 the subject, that the whole affair was laughable. An article, dated Boston the 19th, mentions the arrival of a vessel from the Spanish Main, with intelligence that Barcelona and Cumana bad sur- rendered to the Patriots, and that the city of Caraccas had been evacuated by the Royalists. Letters from Cadiz, dated 31st December, state, in express terms, that no doubt was entertained of the Portuguese attempting to get possession of the eastern bank of La Plata, by virtue of a Conven- tion made with King Ferdinand, who cedes that portion of territory to his father- in- law. This news was published in the Cadiz Diario Mercantil on the 14th December, and up to the 31st of the month it had not been contradicted from Madrid, which proves that the members of the Government were not so eager in this affair as their agents in. London. The Emperor Alexander distinguished the anni- versary of his birth- day by a most remarkable and advantageous Ordinance for the Russian army. The pay of all the Subaltern and Staff Officers, to the Colonel inclusive, is for ever doubled, and a large addition of increase given to the Generals, under the name of Table Money. Every Chief of a regiment receives an addition of3000 roubles, a Brigadier General 4000, a General of Division 6000, and a Commanding General 10,000 roubles. Atl Evening Paper says, " that Ministers have resolved to propose some Reform in the Parlia- mentary Representation, by annihilating the power of some of the rotten boroughs to send Members, and conferring that privilege upon some of th » most populous towns, as Manchester, Birming- ham, & c." There is a familiar English proverb, derived indeed from high antiquity, but now worn by daily use, which says, that " there are many things between the cup and the lip." A report was cur- rent on Wednesday, that the French Loan, which was all but concluded, is still not concluded ; that is, the cup has not yet reached the lip— or perhaps not approached nearer. The formalities were all that was wanting; and the formalities are said to be not yet affixed, and to have even met with serious- obstruction. The funds have somewhat improved in consequence. On Thursday a Meeting of the Livery and Com- mon Council of London was held at Guildhall, pursuant to a requisition, " for the purpose of pe- titioning for a reduction of the present enormous and unconstitutional military establishment; an abolition of all sinecure places and unmerited pensions, retrenchment and economy in the public expenditure, and a constitutional reformation in the representation of the people in Parliament." Mr. Waithman took the lead in the business, aud spoke at considerable length, urging the various arguments which have so often been resorted to on the subject, and in conclusion moved a series of Resolutions in accordance to the sentiments he had expressed. The Meeting was thinly attended; there being about 160 hands held up iu favour of the Resolutions, and eleven against thein. A Pe- tition, founded 011 the Resolutions, was afterwards read and assented to. We learn by letters from Manchester, that a considerable improvement is making in the trade of that place. Large sales have been recently made in cambrics, and calicoes have advanced 7J per cent. The artillery train of Waggons, with an escort, are to employed to convey the new silver coin to different parts of the kingdom. CHARGE OF MURDER.— At Bow- street, on Thursday, Sarah Perry, a cook in the employ of Mrs. King, in Manchester- street, Manchester- square, where she was considered as a married woman, was charged on suspicion of murdering her infant. The prisoner had lived there eleven months, and her husband had not been seen during that time.— She denied the charge, and was com- mitted for a further investigation of the affair, ! t 4' 1 \ 2.

COLCHESTER, SATURDAY, JANUARY 25, 1817. THE ESSEX UNION FOX- HOUNDS MEET— At Leger- ton's Mill, on Saturday, Jan. " 25— At Birdbrook Park, Monday, Jan. 27, at Half past Ten o'clock— Hedingham Country ; and at Mile End Hall, on Friday, Jan. 31, at Ten o'clock. John Smith, Esq. of Finchingfield, has given 501. to the poor of that parish; to which the principal inhabitants have added, by a liberal subscription, a sum sufficient to purchase 250 pair of excellent blankets, which have been distributed to all those that needed them. The ploughman of Mr. H. Land, of Sea Street Hearne, in Kent, last week ploughed up in one of his master's fields, a guinea coined in the reign of Charles II. in high preservation. Money of this denomination was first coined by that Monarch, and called a Guinea, from being made of gold imported from that part of the African coast which goes by thai name. Colonel Hamilton, of the 3d Foot Guards, was called I The following Gentlemen were admitted to the to the defendant's character. He stated, that the dc- degree of B. A. of the University of Cambridge, fendant had lived with him for two years, as game- on Saturday last. At the Quarter Sessions for this county, held at Chelmsford last week— Mary the wife of Jasper Crane, of Newport, exhibited articles of the peace against her husband, by whom it appeared she had been most cruelly treated exhibitant swearing that her life was in danger, from his brutal violence The Court com luittcd liiin to Newport House of Correction for twelve months, in default of giving security for his peaceable demeanour, himself in 401. and two sureties in 201. each. AN IMPOSTOR Mr. Jessopp, at the instance of Waltham Abbey parish, exhibited articles of the pence against Mary Hayter, alias Mary Graves, for violent and outrageous conduct towards Elizabeth Alsey, a pauper in Waltham Abbey workhouse. The I earned Counsel stated, that the female against nil n this application was preferred, had rendered heist f, for a considerable time past, a very prominent chanter, in the successful exercise of fraud and impost ion, in several parishes ill this county. He ingenuity was chiefly displayed in the extortion of charity, by pretending to be suddenly taken iu the jiains of premature labour. By this trick she had frequently imposed upon the credulity of the humane hut more particularly upon the parish officers. In this way the officers of Waltham Abbey had been entrap- ped. She was brought into the workhouse, appa rently in the most excruciating pangs. Every atten- tion was paid to her sufferings; medical aid was called in; but the only means found of relieving her suffer- ings, was the ministration of a powerful well- known cordial commonly called gin ; with copious libations of which she was continually plied, but without any appearance of accelerating parturition. At length an eminent accoucheur was sent for, who, upon bein introduced to the sick chamber, instantly recognized the patient to be an old impostor, who had twice before been attended by him in the same way. On a sudden, the lady recovered the use of all her faculties, and wns restored to perfect case and tranquillity. It appeared that during her pretended indisposition, she had conceived sou. e hostility towards Elizabeth Al sey, the exhibitant, who had been appointed her nurse. She accused her of having stolen some of her medicine, and threatened her with destruction ; swear nig that she would " do for her." Iu manifestation of her threat, she had placed a dinner fork in Alsey bed, iu such a direction, that when the girl retired to rest, it must have penetrated her body. Fortunately, however, the trap was discovered before it look effect, and the danger was avoided. It was to guard this poor girl against similar peril, that the present appli- cation was made, at the instance of the parish officers, — The Court ordered her to be confined in Barking House of Correction for twelve mouths, in default " of finding security for her peaceable demeanour, herself in 201. and two sureties in 101. each. John Robjent, John Sparkes, and James Robjent, were brought up, and pleaded guilty to an indict ment for assaulting two parish constables, named John Shelley and James Langley, on the 19th of October last. A person named Poulton, having been in con finement since the 5th of November, for the same offence, was discharged, upon paying a fine of Is. and the other defendants were sentenced to one month's Imprisonment e: u h in Halstead House of Correction. William Proud, Samuel Roots, John Smith, Wil- liam Nicholls, and John Wright, were indicted for stealing a peck of oysters, of the value of 5s. the pro- perty of Messrs. Thomas and Fuller Browning, Oyster Merchants, at Paglesham. — They were found guilty, and the Court sentenced Proud to twelve months' imprisonment at Halsted; Roots only to three months, < in consequence of some favourable circumstances iu liis case) at Chelmsford ; and the other defendants were sentenced to twelve months' imprisonment each iu the House of Correction at Chelmsford. Joseph Serle, Thomas Day, and Thomas Sapsford, were convicted upon a charge of being found, on the 6th of December last, about the hour of eleven at night, in Hatfield Broad Oak Forest, the properly of John Archer Houblon, Esq. aud Sir John Barrington, and having in thpir possession two nets, for the pur- pose of taking hares, rabbits, and other game.— The Court sentenced them to three months' imprisonment each iu the Chelmsford House of Correction, and during that time to be kept to hard labour. Edward Quife, a married man, with two children, mid gamekeeper to Colonel Hamilton, was indicted for an assault upon a little girl, of interesting appear- ance, about eleven years old, on the 28tli December last.— The little prosecutrix told her story in a simple and artless manner:— Ou the 28th of December, she was going home from Ongar, with a bundle of garden greens, to her mother ; and as she approached Lang- ford Bridge, she was accosted by the prisoner, who asked her several questions relating to her family ; whether she had any brothers and sisters, aud who her parents were. He then asked her to accompauy him into an adjoining field; this she refused, saying she wanted to go home; upon which he lifted her forcibly over a gate, aud having carried her some dis- tance from the roac!, he behaved in a very indelicate manner; after which he suffered her to depart. She immediately went home, told her mother w hat hap- pened to her, aud described the person and dress of the'prisoner, whom she had never before seen. Having no father, her uncle was made acquainted with the circumstances; and from the description given of the defendant's person and dress, he surmised that it might be Colonel Hamilton's game- keeper. He accordingly took the child along with him, for the purpose of going to the Colonel's house; and as they approached it, they met the Colonel and his game- keeper coming towards them. The child, upon seeing the game- keeper, instantly identified him as the man who had committed the outrage upon her. The uncle imme- diately challenged the defendant with his perfidious conduct; but he swore most solemnly that lie was not the person. He called upon God to witness his innocence, and used other apostrophes in confirmation of his denial of the charge The uncle confirmed the child's statement, relating to the identity of the de- fendant. Mr. Jessopp; as Counsel for the defendant, addressed the Jury with considerable ingenuity; remarking ' upon the improbability of the story, and insisting that the gii i muU harp bleu mistaken iu the person of the defendant. keeper, and that during all that time he had borne an unimpeachable character. The defendant had been a private in the Colonel's regiment, and had served with great bravery in all the campaigns in Spain. He was an excellent husband, and was, up to this transaction, a man who liad conducted himself with the utmost propriety. The, Chairman summed up the evidence for the Jury with the greatest perspicuity and impartiality, and after deliberating a few minutes, they found the defendant Guilty. In passing sentence, the Chairman lamented, that a man of the defendant's good character should be brought to the bar of the Court, for such an offence. The Court, however, iu the proper discharge of its duty, was bound to mark the sense it entertained of the crime. Undoubtedly, character should have its weight, aud the Court giving all due weight to the high reputation lie had hitherto borne, sentenced him to twelve months imprisonment in the House of Cor- rection of Chelmsford. James Turner, foreman in the service of Mr. Samuel Death, glover and fellmonger, of Braintree, was in- dicted for stealing four pair of gloves and a pair of buskins, the property of his master It appeared that Mr. Death had, for a long time, missed property, which lie could not account for. At Christmas, a servant boy of Mr. Tabor, a farmer, near Braintree, came to the shop, and demanded a customary Christ- mas- box. Mr. Death said, that as the boy's piaster had not had any goods of him that year, he could not give him any thing. The boy immediately replied, that his master had bought five dozen of harvest gloves at the shop very lately ; and that the prisoner had sold them, and received the money for them. This discovery produced some inquiry, and it turned out, that the prisoner had carried the gloves in ques- tion to his own lodgings, and there sold tliem to Mr. Tabor's servants, and never accounted with his master for the proceeds.— Four pair of gloves aud a pair of buskins, which had been sold by the prisoner to Mr. Tabor's men, were now produced, and identified by Mr. Death, as his property, and for which he had never been paid by the prisoner.— The Jury found the prisoner Guilty, and he was sentenced to twelve mouths imprisonment in the House of Correction at Halsted. Peter Michael, found guilty of stealing three shirts, the property of a poor laundress, in the parish of Wi- venhoe, near Colchester, was sentenced to six months' imprisonment in the Chelmsford House of Correction, aud during that time to be kept to hard labour. Samuel Cunningham, for stealing a goose, a piece of carpet, a chain line, a dog's collar, and other articles, the property of Daniel Robins, of Fordham, was sen- tenced to six mouths imprisonment at Barking. Henry Choat, a Carrier, for stealing four bushels of oats, and one bushel of beans, the property of Zacha- riah Shaw, of Littleberry, was sentenced to six months' imprisonment iu the House of Correction at Newport, aud during that time to be kept to hard labour. Joseph Bray, for stealing, at Writtle, three pieces of birch poles, the property of Mr. Savage Barrell, was sentenced to one mouth's imprisonment iu the House of Correction at Newport. John Kirby aud David Chapman, for stealing, on the same day, in the same parish, six birch poles, a quantity of chaff, and other articles, the property of Mr. Savage Barrell, were sentenced to six months imprisonment and hard labour, in the House of Cor- rection iu Chelmsford. William Wall, for stealing a silver watch, ribbon, aud seal, in the parish of Kelvedon Hatch, the pro- perty of James Wheel, a poor labouring man, received sentence of three months' imprisonment in the House of Correction at Halsted, aud during that time to be kept to hard labour. John Pain, for stealing, at Witham, three live tame rabbits, the property of Mr. Samuel Mott, was ordered one mouth's imprisonment at Chelmsford, and to be kept to hard labour during that time. William Davidson, for stealing oue sow pig, the pro- perty of Mr. George Newman, of Belchamp St. Paul's, was sentenced to twelve mouths' imprisonment in the House of Correction at Chelmsford. At Ipswich Quarter Sessions, Daniel Spooner, for stealing nine pigs from Mr. Richard Keeble, of Coddeuham, was sentenced to seven years' trans- portation.— John Spurling, for stealing a quantity of beans from Mr. John Taylor, of Barham; and Isaac Ranson, for cutting and stealing a large quantity of hair from off the tails of several horses at Buxhall, were each sentenced to eighteen month imprisonment.— Edward Arms, for stealing a scythe from Mr. G. Morgan, of Holbrook ; and Emerson Jordan, for stealing three chickens from William Kett, of Kelsale, to twelvemonths' imprisonment. Robert Wink, for stealing a pair of leather high- lows from Mr. Jonathan Berry, of Laxfield, to three months' imprisonment.— R. Kerridge, sen. and R. Kerridge, jun. for stealing a quantity of chaff from Mr. Richard Proctor, of Coddenham, to one month's imprisonment.— William Smith, Sarah Mallet, and Hannah Smith were remanded to the Assizes.

William Howard, for being found with a gun in a wood at Tunstall, with the intent of killing game, to be imprisoned two months.

Davy, Esq. of Yoxford, were each sentenced to three months' imprisonment.— John Green, for stealing a sack from Mr. Miller, of Reydon; and Barnabas Clarke, for stealing a car- pet from Mr. Last, of Darsham, to be imprisoned two months. The Quarter Sessions for the city of Norwich were held last week. The Learned Recorder, in his charge to the Grand Jury, expressed his regret at the very great number of offences which appeared upon the calendar, which number, he said, ex- ceeded any which he had seen since he had sat upon the bench. It was particularly melancholy to witness such depravity, at a time when all classes of the Christian community appeared to be united for the purpose of ameliorating the condition of the poor, and of circulating religious knowledge amongst them. The same description, we regret to state, applies to several other counties and cities. At Norwich County Sessions, William Randall and George Ives, for being found with guns, early in the morning of the 3d of January inst. for the purpose of destroying game in Thorp Wood, the property of Lord Suffield, pleaded guilty ; the for- mer was sentenced to seven years' transportation, and the latter to two years' imprisonment in Wy- mondham Bridewell, Trinity College.— Messrs.

Saturday morning, a man went to the house of Mr. Jolly, near Romford, and told the maid- ser- vant that her master sent him to take down the bed and window curtains to be cleaned and dusted, as the family would not come home for a fortnight. The girl went to fetch him a jug of ale and some bread and cheese, which he requested, and on her return found the pretended upholsterer had de- camped, taking with him a silver tea and milk- pot, sugar- tongs, and four tea- spoons. On Saturday morning, between eitclit and nine o'clock, a gentleman was robbed near Epping Forest, of three II. Bank of England not.- s, & c. by three footpads. After the gentleman had got clear of the robbers he went to Woodford, and gave inform- ation of the robbery to Boucher, the horse- patrole belonging to Bow- street, who lost no time in mounting his horse, and riding off in pursuit of them. He took his course across the country towards Waltham Abbey, and after riding some time he came up with three men, who answered the description he had received of the robbers. They had a boy with them. At the time he came up w ith them there were no houses nigh, nor were any people passing, he therefore walked his horse, aud talked with tliem, till he came near some men, whom he called to assist him, which they did. The villains made a desperate resistance, one of them and the boy escaped. , On searching the two who were secured, thlTe were found on them loaded pistols and fhree 11. bank- notes, which are sup- posed to be the same the gentleman had a short time before been robbed of. The patrole lent his horse to a farmer's sou, who rode off full speed after the two taken were properly secured, and came up with the other man in the marshes, where he was concealed, and with some assistance he was secured. They were all taken to Loudon by Boucher, and after undergoing a short examina- tion, committed for further investigation. The persons apprehended are named John Hunt, John Chaffey, and George Hundley. On Monday they were re- examined, when Mr. Wind us, the gentle- man lobbed, swore positively to each of the pri- soners being the persons who robbed him ; iu con- sequence of which, they were committed to take their trial at the ensuing Assizes for this couuly, aud the parties bound ever to prosecute. Two boys, brothers, the one six and the other seven years of age, were drowned on Wednesday se'unight at Walsoken, near Wisbech, Suffolk, by venturing on the ice before it was sufficiently strong. Their bodies were found next morning. SACRILEGE.— Ou Saturday night last some per- son or persons broke into the beautiful Chapel of King's College, Cambridge, and stole the lofty sil- ver candlesticks belonging to the altar. The small door at the east etui was found open next morning. CURIOUS BURgLARY.—- An extraordinary rob- bery was committed on Christmas Eve, in the house of Isaac Williams, Esq. of Beachamwell, in the county of Norfolk, from which no less than fifty brace of hares were taken. The reason of Mr. Williams having so great a number of hares in his house at onetime was, that Mr. W. bad been what is called mobbing a warren; that is, driving the game within a circle of three or four fields adjoin- ing his house, which had been made a kind of pre- serve, and around the confines of which nets were placed to intercept the hares from getting out. They were of course netted in every direction, and up- wards of 200 brace of hares were taken in the spring, all of which he had dispersed among his friends in various directions, except the fifty brace above mentioned. It is curious, that besides the fifty brace of hares, the robbers touched nothing else. The hares had been killed to prevent their destruction of several turnip fields. In the night of Tuesday, two men escaped from Chelmsford gaol, by making their way to file top of the outer wall, first ha- iug released them- selves from their irons, excepting one, who, it ap- pears, went away with the ringle on his leg. By the pieces of iron they had forced some fastenings which obstructed their escape. One of them was apprehended near Great Dunmow, where he was observed by a woman to be lurking about the premises, with a view, as she supposed, to com- mit some depredation, and was re- conducted to prison. An inquest was taken at the Five Bells, Colne Engain, on Tuesday last, on view of the body of William Sach, aged about 85 years, who was found dead in his bed on the Saturday morning preceding Verdict— Sudden Death..

FOR any one who has recently engaged iu a Business to claim a superiority over others of long establishment, would appear like arrogance; but facts areas superior to argument, as authenticity to fallacy; and that a superiority does exist, either in the quality, the particular attention paid to the article manufactured, the general punctuality with which orders are executed, or iu tiie peculiar manner on which the business is conducted, is evideut from the circumstance of each revolving year having produced to BUTLER an increase of custom. Personal application, selling without any abatement of the price first asked, aud entirely for R- eady Money, must give such a prefereuce as to ensure success in any under- taking. Iu a sale, which Butler has had, of more than 12,000 pairs of Boots aud Shoes, some few may possibly have proved but indifferent; but as he engages to repair, free of expence, any Goods bought at his Warehouse, which may become unsewed, the objection- to purchasing them ready- made becomes a nullity. Butler's Stock, for extent ana variety, is certainly superior that of any other ill Colchester : his Gentlemen's London- made Boots aud Shoes, which he lias for Sate on Commission, are selected with particular care, by the manufacturers; aud as every Boot or Shoe must come under his immediate inspection previous to its b : ing offered for sale, it is for his interest, as well as that his customers, that none shall be warranted if known to be of an inferior quality.

MARK- LANE, MONDAY, J AN. 20, 1817. There was a large supply of Wheat at Market to- day. besides a considerable quantity left over, and the demand not being in proportion, sales uere heavy at a redaction of 2s. per quarter upon finer samples, and 4s. upon inferior.— Barley was also 2s. per quarter lower, except for prime malting, which supported last Monday's prices.— Grey and Boiling Pease met a heavy sale, at a reduction from 2s. to 3s. per quarter.— Beans were much ou the same terms as before stated.— New Oats were at a depreciation of 2s. per quarter, but old ones, of good quality, maintained their former value.

On Friday, Hatteraick Button, a German, was in- dicted for the murder of Hinks, on the night of the 28 th of December last. Christian Newman, examined through the medium of an interpreter, deposed that he was a sugar- baker; that he lived in Upper Thames- street; that he was employed by Messrs. Ficks and Co. that Hinks, the deceased, lived there too, as well as the prisoner Button. They were all three in Mr. Ficks's employ. The witness remembered, that on the 28th of Decem- ber last, about nine o'clock at night; the deceased and the prisoner went out, and returned home together; that they went into the loom where they cooked their victuals; there was no one present at that time but themselves; there had been no quarrel between them to the witness's knowledge. They were apparently on good terms at the time; they had worked together some months. They slept together in the same room, and were as friends till the 28th. On that night they were supping together, and the prisoner took up his candlestick and began to mend it with the poker, when the deceased objected to the noise, he not having finished his supper. The prisoner continued beating with the poker, when the deceased stepped forward and laid hold of it. They struggled for some time, ( about five minutes,) each taking hold of the poker. They were enraged at each other. They each held the poker with one hand and beat one another with the other. They then laid hold of it with both hands and endeavoured to wrench it from each other, which the prisoner succeeded in doing. The prisoner then strack the deceased with it twice on the head, when the fell. The prisoner discontinued the blows as soon as he had fallen. The people came down in conse- quence of the noise, and a doctor was sent for. The prisoner and the deceased were both in liquor at the • Henry Worthington, a surgeon of St. Bartholomew's - hospital, saw the deceased before his death ; his head .- nied after bis death; there was a large wound the left ear; the skull was fractured under the which might have been occasioned by a , ind the fracture, iu witness's judgement, was use ol death. . prisoner offered no defence, and produced no • s is to character. . . Justice Park, addressing the Jury, stated to . distinction between manslaughter and mur- < , and said, that in this case there appeared no i. • ... vv of that matice prepense which constituted the latter crime, It was proper, in all cases, when a life was taken away by vioieuce, and when there could remain the ie; M doubt with regard to the state of mind with which the act was perpetrated, to send it to the decision of a Jury ; but here the evidence went no further than manslaughter, though fnurder was charged in the indiement Guilty of Manslaughter. P. Downs and T. Walton were indicted for the wilful murder of Stanton, on the 28th of December last, at a coffee- shop in George- street, parish of St Gites. Jane Jealons deposed, that she lived in George- street, and on Saturday, the 28th December, she was at a coffee- shop in that street, about twelve at night The deceased came in afterwards, she believed in company with a girl. The two prisoners entered soon after Stanton. There might be nineteen or twenty persons in the room, of whom five were women. Stanton called for some coffee, which he drank, and paid for in loose money ; then pulled out something more, which witness did i, ot see, saying, this were lost, ! know somebody who must starve.' The prisoners, together with others, upon this, laid hold of him by the arm and collar of his coat, and dragged him into a corner. Downes placed his hand upon his month, and assisted in forcing him into chair, Witness then saw Downes fix his fore- fingers and thumb upon the deceased's beck, and remain in that altitude several minutes, during which time the other prisoner appeared to be engaged in searching bis pockets, and in giving something to each of those who stood by. Stanton remained in the chair near ha fan hour, when it suddenly broke under him, upon tin noise of which the landlord, Bastall, entered, and desired them all to depart. The deceased was led out by the prisoners, others surrounding him and pushing him onward towards the door. As he passed the witness she heard a gurgling noise in his throat Stanton was a little in liquor. She went out of the house about twenty minutes after the departure of the deceased, and had gone a very little way when she saw him carried in the arms of four watchmen apparently dead. Oilier witnesses deposed to the same effect. Henry Burgess, a surgeon, deposed, that he was sent for to see the deceased about four in the morning He was then quite dead and cold. There were NO external marks of violence about him; but the ap- pearance of the neck and face indicated a great de- termination of blood towards the head. There was considerable fulness in the eyes, and a general livid appear nice. The lips were not remarkable for more than the ordinary paleness of death. He attempted to bleed him in the temples and arm, but in vain. The general symptoms were such as would attend death caused by strangulation, or a violent squeezing of the ic throat. If caused by drinking, the same symp- toms would not follow. The deceased appeared to have been, though not a strong man, a healthy subject. The foam which was about his mouth, he took to be a natural secretion on the approach of dissolution. The prisoners, in their defence, denied all the cir- cumstances related by the woman who had described the scene in the coffee- shop, and affirmed, that the deceased fell down and died a moment or two after leaving a cook- shop, where they had supped together about twelve at night. Mary Newton and Emma Burford contradicted all the material points in the evidence of the other girls. Mr. Justice Park summed up the evidence at consi- derable length, and reprobated the existence of such a place as Bastall's coffee- shop, as a disgrace to the police. The Jury, after a short deliberation, pronounced both the prisoners.— Not guilty. TRIAL OF THE RIOTERS. Monday, John Hooper, John Cashman, R. Gamble, William Gunnell, and John Carpenter, were put to the bar, charged with a capital felony, in stealing, on the 2d of December, in the parish of St. Sepulchre, two blunderbusses, ten pair of pistols, a groat number of muskets, and twenty steel shut charges, worth about 250!. the properly of Andrew Beckwith, in his dwel- ling- house. Mr. Bolland opened the indictment, and Mr. Gur- ney stated the case; the details of which have been laid before the public in former papers. Mr. Bulla nd then proceeded to call witnesses. William Andrew Beckwith said, he lives in Skinner- street, and is a gun- maker. On the 2d of December last, went out about eleven in the morning. His shop was then open, and contained a quantity of fire arms. When he returned lie found it in a demolished state, and nearly all the fire- arms gone. There were from 150 to 2OO guns, about 100 brace of pistols, several charges of ammunition, and other articles, valued at least at IS401. and upwards, stolen from his shop. John Roberts, deposed, that he was an apprentice to the last- mentioned witness. On the 2d of Decem- ber, about twenty minutes after twelve o'clock, a young man came into the shop who shot Mr. Platt. Soon after, about four or five hundred persons came to the shop, took away the fire- arms, and rescued the young man who was taken into custody for shooting Mr. Platt. The mob first broke the windows, and put in their hands to take out the fire- arms. They afterwards entered it in a body. Cashman, the pri- soner, was there. He took out about a dozen pieces of fire- arms, and some charges from the counting- house, and distributed them to the mob at the door. Witness had no doubt of his person.— A person named Hone, Henry Beckwith, and C. Griffin were in the shop at the time. A pistol was discharged at Mr. Piatt in the shop, and another at the time the mob came up. Cashman was there at the time. Gunnell was in the mob, and witness thought he was the per- son who broke the windows of the shop, but he would not swear to the fact. George Liddiard said he was a hair- dresser, resid- ing on Snow- hill. On the 2d of December he heard the report of a pistol, and went to know from whence it proceeded. There was a mob at the house of Mr. Beckwith, and they had a flag flying, on which was written " Justice."—" Trust to Providence." The mob seemed to be looking for their leader. A man dressed as a brewer's servant, was breaking the win- dows on Hie one side, and a seaman on the other. Some men and boys were engaged in taking out fire- arms. The shop was completely broken open, and every thing within plundered. The mob brought their flag into the shop, it having been previously handed from Hooper to another person. Witness saw Cashman in the shop of Mr. Beckwith; he and another seized upon Mr. Griffin, who had gone to bring handcuffs to secure a man in the house. Cash- man went frequently into the counting- house, carried out fire- arms, and threw them to the mob. Gamble, the prisoner, was in front of the house, but had then no gun. Witness afterwards saw him with one in the middle of the road, with a musket on his shoulder. A drayman was there, who broke the windows with a broom- stick, but he could not speak to his person. Charles Griffin stated that he resides in Skinner- street; was at the house of Mr. Beckwith on the 2d of December, when a person was taken into custody for shooting. Mr. Platt, and he went for handcuffs.— On his return, in ten minutes, he found the shop iu the state he left it, but immediately after, Gunnell, the drayman, broke the windows with a broom- stick. Hooper and Cashman then entered ( with a flag) the shop, and seized him by the collar; he had seen Hooper with this flag previously, in the Old Bailey, and there was something on it relative to the soldiers. They are our friends," & c. Hooper cried out pre- viously to the mob entering the shop " Follow me!" and it was immediately entered. When Cashman and Hooper seized witness, he cried out " What do yon seize me for? I came in to rescue the man as well as you." He said this for his own safety, and they then let him go. Witness then presented a blunderbuss, when Hooper pulled a pistol from his breast, and said, " I can play with that as well as you." Witness became terrified, went up stairs, but did not come down again. The mob retired in about a quarter of an hour. Thought he saw the prisoner Gamble among them, Joseph Dynan, resides at 5, George- yard, Snow- hill, and is a boot- maker. On the 2d of December last, he was coming up Snow- hill, and saw a mob in Skinner- street. Cashman and Carpenter were among them, and the shop of Mr. Beckwith was broken open ; Cashman went in, brought out some fire- arms, and gave them to the mob, crying " Here! here!"— The prisoner, Carpenter, had a pistol, and was flourishing it, and huzzaing, as he went with the mob towards Newgate- street. Mr. John Middleton, a wholesale stationer, residing in Skinner- street, saw the mob about Mr. Beckwith's house, and on hearing the report of a pistol, some of the mob receded from the shop, and came opposite witness's house. The prisoner Hooper was most certainly amongst the mob; he was conversing with the man who carried the flag. Witness drew the conclusion that he was directing the progress of the mob. lie wore a tri- coloured ribbon in his hat.— The flag was tri- coloured. There was a shouting at Mr. Beckwith's, and the mob pressed forward to the shop. Here the flag was produced— upon it was " Nature to feed the hungry— Truth to protect the oppressed, and— Justice to punish crime." After the arms were taken out of Mr. Beckwith's shop, the mob proceeded towards Newgate- street, carrying the flag. Witness had no doubt but Hooper went away with the mob. Joseph Page, drayman to Messrs. Calvert, said, that on the 2d of December, about two o'clock, he was in Warwick- lane; he saw the prisoner Gunnel with a gun in his hand, he was going towards Cheapside ; the whole of the mob were going towards Cheapside, carrying a flag. Witness had known Gunnell six years. Sir James Shaw, Bart. M. P. deposed, that on the 2d of December he went to the Lord Mayor to assist in quelling the riots. He first saw the mob on the north side of the Royal Exchange ; they had a flag with them, but witness did not see- any arms. He seized the flag, and likewise the bearer of it. The flag produced was the one he seized; it was attached to a very long pole. Samuel Levy, is a city constable, and was so on the 2d of December. Witness saw the prisoner, Cash- man, at the Royal Exchange: he had a gun, which witness took from him and gave to Cartwright, the gun was loaded with powder and shot. Daniel Cartwright, a marshal man, produced the gun. Witness saw Cashman in the mob with the gun; it was taken from him by the last witness; it was loaded and primed. Mr. Beck with proved that the gun produced had been taken from his counting- house on the day of the riots. Abraham Samuels said, he knew the prisoner Gamble; he saw him near the Royal Exchange with the mob; he had a gun across his shoulder. John Gough, an officer, apprehended the prisoner Gamble at two o'clock on the 2d of December, in Queen- street, Borough; he had a gun, which witness took from him. Witness asked him where he had got the gun; he said, he picked it up in Skinner- street, but it was only dirty at the butt- end. John May produced the gun, which was delivered to him by last witness; and Mr. Beckwith identified it to be one of those taken from his shop on the day in question. Thomas Friend, an officer, produced a pistol, which he received on the 6th of December, from Hill, a pawnbroker. He apprehended the prisoner Carpenter. Mr. W. Hill, shopman to Mr. Willis, a pawnbroker, living in the Borough, said, that the pistol produced by last witness, was offered to him to pledge by Elizabeth Owen, on Thursday the 5th of December. Elizabeth Owen said, she took the pistol to last witness at the direction of John Carpenter, who gave it her to pawn. Mr. Beckwith believed the pistol produced to be his property. He believed it to be one he bought at Mr. Mortimer's sale in Fleet street, with two brace, which he also lost on the second of December. Mr. John Hodgetts, of Paternoster- row, was near the north door of the Exchange on the 2d of Decem- ber, and he saw a great mob there, among whom was he prisoner Hooper, whom he seized. Mr. V. G. Dowling stated, that on the morning of the 2d December he was in Spa- fields, and he saw a mob assembled round a waggon. The prisoner Hooper was standing in the waggon. Two tri- coloured flags were displayed from it; the one pro- duced was one of them. The mob quitted that spot, and went towards Coppice- row. The colours and a banner were removed with the mob. The flags were carried by men in sailors' dresses, and Hooper walked close to the men who carried them. On their arrival in Coppice- row, Mr. Stafford made towards the colours, and took one of them. John Limbrick, an officer, was stationed in Coppice- row, on the day in question. He saw Hooper and Cashman in the waggon. Cashman hail a tri- coloured flag— Hooper had a tri- coloured cockade in his hat. Edward Gootsby was iu Spa- fields on the 2d of December. He saw Hooper and Cashman in the waggon. He saw Cashman with one of the colours in Coppice- row. Frederick Windermude, of the Horse Ferry- road, Westminster, stated, that on the Wednesday pre- ceding the meeting in Spa- fields, Hooper came with a person who hired a waggon, and ordered it to be at the top of Chancery- lane at half past nine o'clock. Witness accordingly took the waggon at the time appointed. Hooper and another person came and put something into the waggon, which he afterwards knew to be colours. They also put in a small parcel, which he afterwards discovered to contain powder and bullets. Hooper rode in the waggon to Spa- fields, and continued there until the mob came; lie was in the waggon when the colours were displayed. Cashman was also there. They left the waggon with the mob. Gillman, an officer, produced from 60to 100 bullets, and about a pound of gunpowder, which he received from the last witness. The evidence for the prosecution was here closed. Cashman being called on to state what he had to say in his defence, utterly denied having been either in Spa- fields or in Mr. Beckwith's shop. He had been to the Admiralty, he said, and met the crowd as he was coming back, at the corner of Saint Paul's Church- yard He had no witnesses to call. John Hooper said, that after being in custody three weeks, there was no evidence against him, further than for a misdemeanor. Griffin he saw frequently at the Mansion- house, but he never made so terrible a charge against him as he did that day. He was unprepared to meet this evidence. He denied enter- ing Mr. Beckwith's shop, and said he followed the crowd to prevent mischief, and to bring them away from young Watson. He called some persons to his character. Alexander Harding, carver and gilder, of Marsham- street, Westminster; John Bennett, shoemaker, of Grafton- street, Soho; and Thomas Geary, spoke as to the character of Hooper. Richard Gamble, in his defence, said, he was going on the morning of the 2d of December in search of work ; that not getting it, he accidentally fell in with the mob; and that Mr. Beckwith's was broke open long before he picked up a gun in the street. He got home to the Borough by one o'clock, and was taken up at two. William Gunnell said, in his defence, that he never was even near Mr. Beckwith's windows, nor in his shop. John Carpenter being now asked what he had to say for himself, declared that on the day of the riots he was going out in search of employ to the London Docks; and that a gun was thrust into his band while passing by the Mansion- House, which he took, because he was in fear of his life. Several witnesses spoke to the character of the prisoner Gamble. Mr. Justice Park now proceeded to sum up the evidence. The offence imputed to the prisoners, namely, that of entering the dwelling- house of Mr. Beckwith, some persons being therein ; putting those persons in fear, and stealing from the said dwelling- house the arms described in the indictment, was made a capital offence, by the statute of William the Third, It was not necessary, his Lordship observed, that all the prisoners should have entered the house of Mr. Beckwith ; if they were present aiding and abetting, that was sufficient to constitute the offence with which they were charged. Whether they had been so present, or had actually assisted in the felony de- scribed, the Jury would be best able to judge from the evidence, which his Lordship then recapitulated. If they had any just doubts as to the guilt of any of the prisoners at the bar, or hesitated to place full re- liance on the evidence they had heard, they would give the prisoners the full benefit of such doubts. If, on the other baud, they were satisfied as to the cri- minality of any or all of the prisoners at the bar, he trusted that, however painful to their personal feel- ings, they would proceed to discharge an important duty to the public, without fear, favour, or affection. At about four o'clock the Jury withdrew, and after they had consulted till half past six o'clock, returned a verdict of Guilty against one of the prisoners at the bar, John Cashman, but acquitted the other four. Hooper, Gamble, Gunnell, and Carpenter, were ordered to be detained to answer to an indictment for rioting. of the prisoner now fired, and made off. Myers was thus confirmed in his suspicions. He therefore left the prisoner in the custody of Rhodes and Goodwill, two Highgate Constables, while he himself went in pursuit of the prisoner's friends. It was at this pre- cise time that the prisoner thought proper to assault the two persons who had him in charge. He first struck at Goodwin with a sword thrown out from a stick ; and trying still to escape, made a cut at Rhodes. Upon the most minute inquiry into the case, however, it was due to justice to state, in this stage of the busi- ness, that he ( Mr. Gurney) was not authorized by the prosecutor, Rhodes, to represent the matter as wilful on the part of the prisoner. It was so dark when the cut was made, that the prosecutor could not in conscience swear he saw it; and, in fact, the parties fell in scuffling more than once. Mr. Justice Park observed, that in some cases it was difficult to interpret the bearing of Acts of Parliament, because of their remoteness ; but the Act here referred to was recent, and understood in its purest sense. It certainly had no indictment in view that did not com- prehend that malicious maiming which, in case of death ensuing, would amount to murder. While he complimented the Learned Counsel ( Mr. Gurney) on the marked candour of his conduct in the present case, therefore, he could not help thinking that it would be a waste of lime, after what had been stated, to pro- ceed with the cause. Mr. Justice Burrough was of the same opinion with Mr. Justice Park ; and the Recorder coincided with both; and after some conversation with the Bench Mr. Gurney withdrew his indictment. When this result was understood in Court, there was a clapping of hands near the north- west door. Mr. Justice Park, rising, said, that the triumph, if any, was that of law ; it was no triumph to the pri- soner at the bar. It proved that the laws of England threw its protecting aegis over the accused whenever he needed it, or could avail himself of it; but there was no cause for the indecent exultations which had just been manifested, and which was a disgrace to the country. If repeated in that Court, he would commit the first offender to Newgate. Huzzas were heard from the Press- yard, in gratula- tion of Watson's supposed acquittal. Dr. Watson went precipitately from the bar, ap- peared to be agitared, and surprised at his deliverance. He is about fifty years old. Numbers of his friends were present in Court, from whom the clapping no doubt proceeded. Tuesday morning Richard Simmons, the black, was tried for robbing the shop of Mr. Rea, a gun- smith in the Minories, on the 2d December last, of a quantity of fire- arms, and capitally convicted. William Matthews was tried for having in his pos- session a pistol, the property of Mr. Rea, and was found Guilty of simple larceny. The Grand Jury for Middlesex returned a true Bill against James Watson the elder, James Watson the younger, Thomas Preston, John Hooper, and William Cashman, for having conspired together, and thereby created a riot on the 2d December last. This indictment, it is expected, will be traversed till the next Sessions. TRIAL OF DR. WATSON. James Watson was then placed at the bar, to take his trial on an indictment which charged him with having, on the night of the 2d of December last, cut or stabbed one Joseph Rhodes, in the parish of Horn- sey, with a sharp instrument, with intent to disable the said Joseph Rhodes, or to do him some bodily harm. Mr. Gurney, in opening the case, stated that the indictment imputed a capital offence to the pri- soner. The circumstances of the case were brie fly these:— On the night of the 2d of December last, Myers, one of the patrole belonging to Bow- street, an establishment to which much of the security of the metropolis and its vicinity was owing, was employed at the end of Highgate, nearest Pinch- ley, when he observed three men, who, by their walking on the dark side of the road, seemed as if they designed to elude the observation of those whose duty it was to protect the interests of the public at that hour. Myers had just received information that a robbery had been committed in that neighbourhood by three men, whom he thought answered the ap- pearance of the persons he had now met with. He, accordingly, went up, and demanded to know who they were? At this moment he perceived a pistol hid under Watson's coal. Watson informed the pa- trole he was a mechanic, and that he was going to Northampton. But, as it turned out next day, he was no mechanic, but a surgeon. The companions BRAINTREE .. BALLINGDON .. BRENTWOOD... BURES BURY BERGHOLT ..... The following is a recipe, given in an American paper, to make a very beautiful paint for the walls of staircases and lobbies, the cost of which is less than one- fourth of that of oil colour, and the beauty far superior:— Take four pounds of Roman vitriol, and pour on it a tea- kettle full of boiling water; when dissolved, add two pounds of pearl- ash, and stir the mixture well with a stick, until the effervescence ceases, then add a quarter of a pound of pulverised yellow arsenic, and stir the whole together; let it be laid on with a paint or white- wash brush, and if the wall has not been painted before, two, or even time coats will be requisite. To paint a common- sized room with this colour, will not cost more than live or six dollars. If a pea- green is required put in less, and if an apple- green more of the yellow arsenic. A letter dated Boulogne, the 18th inst. says— " The state of this country is most deplorable. On Wednesday might a most barbarous murder was committed at Somai, about nine miles from hence. A man who had been a soldier in the army of Napoleon had been discharged, and instead of allowing half- pay, in order to get rid of people they cannot depend upon, they give them a certain sum of money. This poor man's share amounted to only sixty francs, which he was known to have received. He and his wife went out, leaving in the house three children shut in. On their return they found the eldest hanging in a corner of the kitchen ; she was about seven years of age; the second, about five, with its throat cut; and on infant, in a cradle, untouched. It is suspected that these murders were committed by some person ac- quainted with the receipt of the money, and who was known to the children." An orchard, full of young apple- trees, has slipped from a side hill at Bignor, in Sussex, across one field, over a rivulet into another field, where the trees are principally standing as erect as if they had been planted many years. Mr. William Gibbs. of Haverfordwest, has now in his possession a while starling, without a single coloured feather. This rara avis he shot at and wounded some months ago. The bird is now per- fectly well, and reconciled to its captivity. The papers contain an account of the marriage of Miss Sloe to Mr. Port, an union which was thought to have long since taken place. It appears by the returns made at the London Hospital for one week, that no less than seven children are now there who have been burnt by their clothes catching fire. On Monday last a Frenchman was detected at Southampton in passing a Bank of England note, having the word One ingeniously cut out, and the word Five substituted, so as to pass it for 51.; hut it being taken to the bank soon afterwards, the forgery was discovered, and the man was appre- hended. When examined before the Magistrates, he styled himself a French egg and poultry- mer- chant, and artfully evaded all other information. However, on examining some papers left at his lodging, the identical piece of the note bearing the word One was discovered. This circumstance being found sufficient to constitute a felony, he was fully committed to take his trial at the nest Win- chester Assizes. 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 six o'clock), he succeeded in stealing two valuable gold watches, with which he got clear off, besides scat- tering in to the street a tray of diamond rings, many of which are missing. This is the third robbery of the kind during the week. A NOVEL ACT OF SWINDLING.— A man, of the name of Tilly, who kept a small shop in Thunder- bolt street, Bristol, was tried at the Quarter Ses- sions for that city, and convicted of having received stolen goods.— A fellow who was in Court at the moment when the Jury gave their verdict, imme- diately went to the prisoner's wife, told her that her husband was acquitted, and was now only detained tor the payment of his fees. Overjoyed at the intelligence, she gave the villain all the money she possessed for that purpose; with this he absconded, and a few minutes after she was informed of the fact, that her husband had been sentenced to fourteen years transportation. At Bow- street Office, on Saturday, two brothers, named Joseph and William Follett, the former apparently about eighteen, the latter thirteen years of age, underwent an examination before Mr. Hicks, the Magistrate, upon five several charges brought against them of uttering counterfeit Bank of " Eng- land notes, knowing them to be forged. They were remanded until Saturday next. LONGEVITY.— On the loth of December a Catholic Priest proceeded on foot to the Cathedral of Adria, in Lombardy, and returned thanks for having attained his 1l0th year, without infirmities or sickness! He was accompanied by an immense concourse of people, and chaunted the Cathedral service with a firm, manly, and dignified voice. Margaret Clark, well known at Stonehouse and, Exeter, died a few days at the former place, in the 106th year of her age. She was born at Dundee, in Scotland, and married there about eighty years since. She was at the battle of Fontenoy with her husband, who was afterwards a Serjeant of invalids. She had fifteen children, one of whom is drum- major of the East Devon Militia. She lost two sons at sea at the time of the great earth quake, and- five in the action fought against the French by the fleet under the command of Admiral Keppell. Tea was her constant beverage. SUICIDE.— On Friday evening, the 3d instant, about eleven o'clock, Mr. Cobbett, jun. of Kingston, having just retired to rest with his wife, to who in he had been married but a few weeks, put an end to his existence by blowing his brains out with a pistol ( of three barrels) which he had previously concealed under his pillow. The horrid circumstance has oc- casioned his wife to be insensible ever since, and she is not expected to live. Coroner's Verdict — Insanity. On Saturday morning, a Lady, in St. James's- street, poisoned herself, by taking a mixture of laudanum and spirits. Tuesday morning, between eight and nine o'clock, a decently- dressed woman, about forty years of age, took a boat at Bankside, near Mack- friars- bridge, desiring the waterman to take her to Old Swan Stairs, London- bridge. When they got nearly into the middle of the river she Shrew herself overboard; but the waterman fortunately caught hold her of by the clothes with his boat- hook just she was sinking, and with much difficulty preserved her life. A few clays ago a child of the name of Burt, aged two years, in the absence of its parents, who are shopkeepers, at Brabourne Lees, Kent, drank a quantity of oil of vitriol out of a bottle from the shop- window, and died in twenty- one hours,— Verdict, Accidental Death. An inquisition was taken on Saturday, at the sign of the George, Brentford End, on the body of Joseph Trigg, a boy aged thirteen. The deceased was the son of Joseph Trigg, gardener, of Brent- ford End, and the body was found on Friday morn- ing, floating near Brentford Bridge, after it had floated over into a meadow, belonging to Sir H. Hawley. The deceased was a boy of a very head- strong disposition, and had left his father's house about five weeks ago in a very ill humour. He had no business that could take him within a quarter of a mile of the water, but there, being no evidence of the circumstance under which he had got into it, whether by accident or design, the Jury returned a verdict of— Found drowned. An inquest was taken on Saturday, before Tho- mas Stilling, Esq. at the Crown and Anchor pub- lic- house, at Harrow, on the body of Thomas Rose, post- boy at the Crown and Anchor in that town. He had the care of the chaise and horses, and drove them into a horse- pond at the back of his masters house at night. Next morning a butcher was passing, and saw the chaise and horses in the pond; after they were got out, the deceased was found in the water, quite dead. Verdict— Accidental Death, A CURIOUS STERLING FACT. A person, who keeps a shop in Hounslow, having occasion the other day to go to his back warehouse, perceived a large rat busily employed, in demolishing soma eatable goods in a corner of the room. With a view to destroy the animal, the man retreated to fetch a stick. When he returned, the rat. per- ceiving his foe, ran off, and immediately made lor the hole through which it is supposed he entered the premises. His pursuer, just as the rat was about to enter this retreat, levelled a pretty smart blow at him, and struck the slick, ( which was rather a stout one) with some force against the wainscot of the room ; when, to his vast astonish- ment, as well as joy, a most complete shower of gold ( guineas) instantly descended from the wain cot before his wondering eyes! This extraor- dinary circumstance very naturally suggested the propriety of repeating the blow, expecting a repe- tition of the same good fortune; nor indeed was he, in his expectation and wishes, disappointed. When he had gathered the whole of this golden store, he found, upon counting, he had absolutely picked up upwards of 350 guineas !— From the ap- pearance of the gold, it is supposed this hi aid must have been secreted within the wainscot very many years. The house, it seems, had been in the occupation of the present occupier's father and relatives for nearly a century. EFFECTS OF JEALOUSY.— A few days ago the wife of a coach maker, residing at Chelsea, put a period to her existence in a lit of jealousy, by taking a quantity of arsenic. It was about eight o'clock in the morning when she took the fatal potion. She in a short time afterwards 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 quantity of arsenic crusted upon the sides. Sever; I sur- geons were sent for immediately. They found upon the deceased all the symptoms of having taken poison. One of them procured a strong emetic, and begged the deceased to take it ; she sternly refused, saying, that she had lost the affections of her husband, and had determined to put an end to a miserable life. All the surgeons begged and entreated that she would take the antidote, but their arguments to persuade her were thrown away. A physician was called in, and a consultation being held, they resolved to use force, and they drenched the deceased: a quantity of the arsenic immediately came off her stomach, and she was a little convulsed. The surgeons were of opinion that she had 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 destroyed the stomach. She lingered till five o'clock the same day, and then ex- pired, with seeming composure.
