AGRICULTURE. To the Editor of the MAIDSTONE JOURNAL. As it is probable farmers Will find ft necessary next Spring to sow largely of Spring Wheat, I think it may be useful, as a precautionary measure, to point outcome of the errtfrs usually committed in Europe in the cultivation of that grain. China is tire country where it is raised with the greatest success, and the practice of China may be acceptable.— Spring Wheat should not be grown in Europe without renewing the • seed at least every 2tl year.; by continuing it longer, its characteristic qualities are lost.— The land in which Spring Wheat is grown fequires extraordinary tillage, for which the Chinee have an implement peculiarly well calculated : it also requires a manure capable of hurrying it forward in growth, which the Chinese are also acquainted with. They never sow grass seeds tiniong Spring Wheat as such management is found to injure the crop most materially. In China they have from an acre of land, measurement equal to the Eng- lish acre, five to eight and ten quarters of Spring Wheat; we might have in England an equal produce, did we but follow the same mode of management. What I wish to impress on the farming body at this critical moment is the necessity, the urgent necessity, of giving extraordinary tillage with the plough and harrow to those lauds in which they intend sowing Spring Wheat. Not to sow any seeds of clover, rye- grass, trefoil, or other herbage, among their Spring Wheat. ; To sow their Spring Wheat under furrow, and not to harrow it in, as usually done, it being a tender grain ; and if they wish for a good crop, to use lite Chinese implement and Chinese manure. I would also beg to observe, that in consequence of the state of the land in general, aud the probability of spring tillage being unusually backward, it would be a prudent measure for farmers to have recourse to the use of the Chinese implement, which, from its peculiar ehaiacter, can be used to great advantage on all lands, at a season, and under circumstances, w hen the operation of the plough would be exceedingly injurious. lty the general adoption of this valuable implement, the tillage would be greatly forwarded in the ensuing Spring, which, it is to be feared, may otherwise be very backward, anil consequently the next season's crops may be expected to be deficient. Cost of tiie imp'emerit is 5 only.— f armers should renew their seed of Spring Wheat every second year. I greatly piei'cr the seed from Siberia, where I found it from necessity, ( the parent of every thing valuable), better managed than in our milder climate. I have already advised transplanting wheat, rather than lo sow the Winter Wheat in Ihe spring of the year; and I have also urged the propriety of planting potatoes on all fallows. There is an imperative duty on us all to exert every faculty we possess for the general benefit of the community. The Chinese sup- port a population, stated by some writers at 3 or 400 millions, hv their skill in agriculture : we may adopt some ot their excellent practices with the greatest advantage.

New York Papers to the 25th ult. arrived on Wednesday morning, from which is the fol- lowing extract:— Important News from South America — Mr. M'Farlon, who came passenger in the Higli- Flyer, informs, that the Fort of Monteblanc, which commands the King's road near the Ori- zani and Cordova, was captured lath Nov. by a force of 2,500 Spanish Royalists, throwing down their arms, and rushing into the fort, and Under pretence of joining the Patriots, having arms put into their hands by the latter, in the night rose upon them, and in conjunction with the troops without, subdued the garrison. General Vittoria, the Insurgent Commander of the province, was, in his turn, besieging the Royalists, he had a force blockading the cities of Zalafre, Arisano, and Cordova. The Roya- lists were advancing from Vera , Gruz 1000 strong upon Raquilla, which was garrisoned by only 75 men, and would probably have to sur- render. The fort of Guesalore was attacked in ihe month of October last by Gen. Teran, who was defeated with the loss of 400 men. Mr. D. Robertson was killed amongst them." According to advices from Trinidad of the J2lh ofOctobcr a conspiracy for seizing the for- tress of Guvana had been detected towards the ^ lose of August, and the Spanish Governor, Don Lorenzo Fitzgerald, had ordered the ringleaders to be brought to trial. The Governor w as in- clined to favour a free trade with Trinidad. Cedeno, an independent Chief, occupied, with a considerable force, a position near the city of Guyana, by which the communication with the interior was cut off. A private letter from Paris, of the 11th inst. states, that the King, on the. 16th, created six Peers of France. Their names are, Messrs. Ju- niilhae, Montcalm, De Cazes, sen. Laffitte, Rot, and Greffulhe. In the new Vienna Court Calendar, Buona- parte's son, by Maria Louisa, is styled " Francis Joseph Charles, Prince of Parma," " his other name of Napoleon being omitted. Among the jewels which Madam Murat is go- ing to have sold, is a single row of black pearls, which the Emperor of Austria, it is said, will have bought for the Treasury ( Museum) at Vi- enna, tit the price of 5000 ducats. A letter from Petersburgh, dated December, 8G, says, " The Emperor distinguished theanni versar\ of his birth- day by a most remarkable and advantageous ordinance for the Russian * rmy. The pay of all the subalterns and staff officers, to the Colonel inclusive, is for ever doubled, and a latge addition of increase given to the Generals, under the name of Table- money. Every Chief of a regiment receives an addition Ships driven on shore houses aud boats washed away.— Guns of distress were heard during the whole night— but no assistance could be fur- nished from the shore. The Jasper sloop of war, and all her crew, 2 only excepted, perished. The Telegraph schooner was wrecked, but only two of her crew were lost— Many were wounded. Other ships were driven ashore. The melan- choly details will be found iu the following let- ters from Plymouth: - Plymouth, Jan. 20.— Last night it blew the most tre- mendous gale from the S. E. to the S. S. W. ever re- membered here, and has been productive of gieat da- mage among the shipping in this neighbourhood. The Jasper sloop of war broke from her cable in the night, and drove on shore on the point of Mount Batten, al the entrance of Catwater, and all her crew, except a sailor and marine perished. She must have gone to pieces soon after she struck: a very small part ol her remains on ttie rocks. The Princess Mary packet, of Falmouth, Capt. Po- cock, that arrived here 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 Sa- turday last to see him, together with six of the crew, are drowned. The Telegraph schooner is totally lost on the rocks off the Hoe; one man only drowned : the surgeon has botti liis thighs broke, and several of the crew with broken limbs are now carrying to the Naval Hospital. ' Die Lapwing revenue cutter is on shore and bilged in MjU Bay, but will be got off'if the gale abates: crew saved. The slonp Farmer's Delight is lost on Mount Batten : crew saved. Two houses are washed down at Cawsand, and 1!) boats are missing from the. Bay. Several vessels that were building and repairing are blown and washed off Ihe stocks by the extreme high tide, with a great va- riety of other accidents among the shipping in the har bour. The warehouses, the quays, and the wharfs, have suffered much. The Navy List for this month states, the Jasper to be commanded by Capt. Thomas Carew; Lieutenants Aug. H. Kellett, and Robert Whitcombe; her Master, Edward Smith; Surgeon, Morgan Price; and her Pur- ser, Robert Marshall. The Telegraph is commanded by Lient. Little; and her Surgeon is Mr. Robert Dick. The streets of'Fotness exhibited this morning an extraordinary spectacle. The tide had risen so high, and the river Dart, swoln by the rains poured down such a flood to meet ft, that to- gether they inundated the streets of the lower parts of the town to such a depth, that the in- habitants were constrained to pass to and fro' iu boats.— This may be taken as deplorable ear- nest, of the state of other towns, similarly situated.—•( Exeter Paper, Monday.) By a letter from Mansfield, of the 20th, we are informed, that on Thursday night, about eleven o'clock, the shock of an earthquake was distinctly felt throughout the town of Slansfield, and all the adjacent villages. Mr. Mallby, a banker of that place, observed the phenomenon, and his servants sprung from their beds, under an alarm tLat the house was falling. Many other persons also left their beds in terror. Lord Melville, Sir Joseph Yorke, and John Barrow, Es< j. one of the Secretaries of Ihe Ad- miralty), arrived at Portsmouth on Tuesday evening ; and the next morning his Lordship and Mr. Barrow made an official visit to the Royal Naval College, whilst Sir Joseph Yorke, accompanied by Captain Buchanan, acting as chief engineer iu the garrison, proceeded to Fort Monckton to examine into its capability and fitness as a station or head- quarters for the royal marine artillery instead of llie late hospi- tal at Deal. The only apparent difficulty dis- covered was, it is said, the want of sufficient space to exercise the men in the full range of shells. The object of Lord Melville's visit to the Naval College was, it appears, to make him- self acquainted with the advantages of certain rules and regulations which had been suggested for the improvement of the internal economy of the college previous to its re- opening after the vacation. His Lordship, Sir Joseph Yorke and Mr. Barrow, after they had transacted these affairs set off for Lord Keith's, Purbrook- park, where they dined and slept, and the next day returned to the Admiralty. Fatal Accidents— Wednesday morning a man of the name of Clark, master of one of the craft in < he employ of the Board of Ordnance, had got his vessel under way. to proceed with her to Woolwich, when, unfortunately, before she was clear of the tiers of ships lying off the Tower, a gust of wind caught the vessel, and drove her athwart the hawsers of some vessels off St. George's Stairs : when upon her veering off she was coining in contact with another, Clark, to save his boat from being stove, leaped into her, but not in sufficient time to extricate it from be- twixt the larger vessels, and, dreadful to relate, the unfortunate man was crushed todeath, having been rolled from stem to stern upon the broad- side of the ship. To add to the horrors of the catastrophe, his wife and. child were on board his. vessel, and witnessed the heart rending spec facie. The body, which sunk immediately upon the vessels separating, has not yet been found. The postman employed to convey the mail between Darlington aud Barnard- castle, was lately drowned, in the river Skerne. On his re- turn to the former place, between eleven and twelve, he had gone as usual to wash his horse and gig, when, owing to the darkness of Ihe night, lie is supposed to have got into the current proceeding from I he mill, near Darlington- bridge, and both man and li. orse were in consequence drowned. A subscription has been entered into at Darlington for the relief of the deceased's wife and family. Tuesday morning, between eight and nine o'clock, a decent dressed woman, about 40 years of age, took a boat at Bankside, near Black- friars'- bridge, desiring the Waterman to take her to Old Swan Stairs, London- bridge.— When they got nearly into the middle of the Iliver, she threw herself overboard; the Waterman, fortunately, caught hold of her by the clothes with his boat- book, just as she was sinking, and with much difficulty saved her from a watery grave. lie carried her to a receiving house, in almost a lifeless state, where, after using proper means, she was restored to her senses, and as of 3,000 roubles; a Brigader- General, 4,000: General of Division, ( 5,000 ; and a Commanding j soon as she was able, she was taken home to her General 10,000 roubles. I friends in the neighbour hood of the Bprough. The Indictment against him charged him with having, on the 2d December last, stolen from the shop of Mr. l? ae, a gunsmith in the minories, a quantity of guns, pistols, and other weapons. Mr. Gurney having addressed the Jury, and stated the particulars of the charge, proceeded to call the fol- lowing witnesses :— Mr. Kite stated that he lived at No. 91, Minories, and that between one and two o'clock on the 2d of De- cember last, a number of persons came towards his shop, to the amount of from 1( 10 to 200 ; that he imme- diately closed all his apartments, and looking out. of the window, saw the mob about 100 yards from his house; that a body of them then came and broke into his shop, when he escaped into a neighbour's house ; that he after- wards found the property in his sliop, amounting to upwards of .£' 1,000, had been canietfoff, consisting of sundry fire- am. s, in Bank of England notes and 30 shillings ofcopper. The prisoner put no question to Mr. Rae. Mr. Hall, being sworn, stated, that the mob on the 2d of December, amounted at first only to about fifteen in number ; but that, shortly afterwards they increased to about two hundred; observed the prisoner in the Mino- ries, previous to going to Mr. Rac's. with a sabre in his hand, brandishing it about. Saw the mob break the windows of Mr. Rae's shop, and then earry arms away. The mob afterwards went to the back premises, and succeeded in foicing an entrance there. They remained iu the house for nearly half an hour, and then camc out into the front of the house, with various articles of fire- arms and wearing apparel. The prisoner was then in the middle of the mob, brandishing his sword, and ap- parently extremely active. Abraham Samuel swore that he was a city constable; saw the prisoner on the 2d December, whilst he was standing opposite Mr. Rae's, with a broad cutlass, anil was positive as to his peison. Saw him with his hand iu the window of Mr. Rae's shop, handing some of the fire- arms to the mob, and that he seemed to betlic most active amongst them. John Wilson, a Life- guardsman, was on duty the 2d December last, in the Minories; saw the prisoner amongst the mob, near Mr. Rae's ; he had in his hand a sword, and was quivering it about; lie ( the witness) hit him with the flat side of his sword; the prisoner then gave up the weapon. Thomas Branscomb, a city officer, stated that he apprehended the prisoner at Northfleet, the 10th of December, when the prisoner admitted that he was in . the mob the 2d of December. The prisoner being called on for his defence, said, that a man put the sword into his hand, but that he never took the, sword from Mr. Rae's premises. Mr. Justice Burroughs then addressed the Jury, when, after a short deliberation, they returned a ver- dict— Guilty. William Matthews was then arraigned, charged with having in his possession a pistol, the property of Mr. Rae. He was found Guilty of Simple Larceny. John Hanson was likewise indicted for stealing a gun, 1 the property of Mr. Rae, in the Minories, on the 2d of December last and was found Guiity of Simple Larceny. James Watson, senior, was put to the Bar, and indicted for having, on Ihe 2d of December last, assaulted Joseph Rhodes ivith a sharp instrument railed a sword, with which he struck, cut, and stabbed him on the light. side, with intent to murder him, against the statute in that case made. and provided. A second count charged the prisoner with having cut and stabbed the said Joseph Rhodes, with a view tb maim and disable him : and a thitd count charged him with having cut and stabbed the said Joseph, with intent to do him some grievous bodily harm. The two last counts were founded on the same statute. Mr. Bolland opened the pleadings by stating the sub- stance of the indictment, to which the prisoner had pleaded not guilty. The prisoner entered the Court with a firm step and an air of assurance, with a pen behind his right ear, and several papers sticking out of his pocket. He listened to the indictment with the greatest attention, bending forward several times to catch the precise words. As soon as the pleadings were opened he removed the pen and began lo take notes. Mr. Gurney then said— Gentlemen of the Juiy, the indictment upon wjiich you are now to decide, is one of a different nature from those which have previously occupied your attention. It is an indictment for a capi- tal offence, and is founded upon an act passed a very few years ago. By this act it was found necessary, inorder lo protect the subject from bodily injury, to make all assaults committed with intent to murder, to maim, or to do bodily harm, capital offences. The present indict- ment contains three counts— the first for stabbing with intent lo murder— the second, with intent to maim— and the third, with intent to do bodily harm; and his Lord- ship, who presides, will tell you, Gentlemen, that if yon believe the evidence to be produced, is sufficiently strong to suppnrt any one of these counts, iu point of law the prisonerought to be found guilty. At the. same lime, however, that this penal statute provides for the lives of the people, it enacts, that the stabhingaud cut ting must be such, that ifdeath ensued, it would amount lo positive murder, for if it should appear, in the course of the evidence, that the stabbing and cutting consti- tuted nothing more than the offence of manslaughter, ihe party could not lie convicted under this Act. The facts connected with the present charge are these. On the night of the 2( 1 of December, a man named Nyall, a horse patrole belongingto Bow- street, one ofthose men to whose active vigilance, we are so much indebted for the tranquillity of the metropolis, was oil duty near High- gate. While ( bus engaged, he saw three men advance on the dark side of the road, wh. Jwalk. ed as iflhev wished to avoid observation. Nyall had heard that a highway robbery had been committed a short time before, and it struck him that these three men answered the descrip- tion of the robbers, To ascertain whether he was cor- rect in this, he rode up to the foremast ( the prisoner Watson), and seeing a pistol in his bosom, it naturally occurred lo him, that if he was not one of those who bad ]> een described, he was at least a suspicious cha- racter, He therefore asked him who he was, and where he was going? The prisoner replied that he was a mechanic, and was going to Northamptonshire. This, it appears, was not the fact, as the prisoner is known to be a surgeon. The patrole: then caught hold of the pri- soner, and said he should go with him. At this moment the two men who were with prisoner fired off their pistols. With regard to the two men, it is not the in- tention ofthose who brought the present indictment to shew that there was any connection between ( his act and the crime for which tiie prisoner stands charged.-— On the shots being fired the patrole called for assistance, and ( wo men, Golding and Rhodes, came out from a public- house in the neighbourhood. When they flame up Nyall desired them lo hold Ihe prisoner while he pursued tha two men, who it appears ran off after they fired the pistols. The prisoner being left, in possession of Golding and Rhodes, appeared disposed to make resistance, and drew a sword from a stick, with which lie was walking, and made a stab at one of the two men ; the tlinist did not lake effect at whom it was aimed, and Golding was not wounded. A scuffle then com- menced to get the weapon from him, : and in the course of that scuffle, Rhodes, the other person, was wounded in the thigh. He was taken to the public- house, and found to have a brace of pistols in his possession.-— Under such circumstances, Ihe prisoner was conveyed to the Public Office and , commuted by the Magi- strates. The Grand Jury has found a Bill against him, and he now stands on his trial. The most accurate - and minute examination of witnesses was taken, and I think that it is but due to justice, add those who pre- side. here to administer the laws, to state, that in such minute examination it has been discovered that the wit- ness, Rhodes, will not be able to state that the wound he received was the effect of a wilful thrust from the pri- soner. He received it in the scuffle, hut they were hi the dark, ami down together once or twice, and he will not be able to say he saw what the prisoner did, or that it was a wilful and malicious thrust. Mr. Justice Park here interrupted Mr. Gurney, and said—" I wish to make a remark ill this stage of the proceeding, which I should feel it necessary to make to . tire Jury in a more advanced one, The learned CONN- who condtirfs this case for Hit! Crown has, with aj andor which does equal credit, to himself and those v ho employ him, admitted that the evidence lo be brought II support of the present charge cannot speak as lo the felonious intent of the prisoner. He has stated, thai >! ii. s Act of Parliament is of very recent origin; but ire must take care that the proper line of duty may not he mistaken. It is absolutely necessary, in such a case > s this, that the very words of the Act should be ad- hered ( o.— This Act of Parliament, Inert, expressly provides, that no man charged with cutting or stabbing another shall be convicted, unless the Jury are of opi- nion that the. offence would have been murder if he had died. If the wound is inflicted only in a scuffle, and is not wilful and malicious, it merely amounts to man- slaughter. If, therefore, your evidence would go no farther, as I am at present advised, the safer course for the Jury to pursue would be to acquit the prisoner; and, if so, it would be a great pity to waste the time of the Court, as the result must come to the same point." Mr. Justice Burrough said, it appeared So him that the officer was doing his duty, and that if the, man had been w ilfully stabbed, it was a case that would come clearly w ithin the meaning of the Act of Parliament.— But, according to the admission that had been made", it might be the effect of accident in the struggle that had taken place, and therefore it was quite impossible to suppose that a Jury could determine otherwise. The Recorder expressed himself of the same opinion. Mr Gurney.—" I completely bow to your Lordships. I cannot carry the evidence farther; but we could not forbear going before the Grand Jury ill so public a case as this." Mr. Justice Park.—" It would have been very in- correct not to have brought it before the public. It would be useless, however, to go into a great body of evidence, merely to excite idle curiosity, for the result must be the same." The Learned Judge then informed the Jury, that as the Counsel for the prosecution did not intend to pro- ceed farther, and there was no evidence before them, their duty would be very simple— merely to acquit the Prisoner. The Jury returned a verdict of acquittal accordingly. Immediately upon this there ensued an applause in the Court: several persons below and in the galleries clap- ped their hands, and gave other demonstrations of joy. Mr. Justicc Park, apparently much incensed at this indecorous mode of receiving the verdict, rose from his scat, and said, whoever I see guilty of such indecorum, I will immediately commit. Such marks of exultation are most indecent. It ought to gratify every person, that the Laws of England offered a shield to our liberties and our rights, and that the justice of the emintry was always administered with purity and impartiality. The l aw of England w ill always protect the innocent, and : even w hen under strong suspicion of guilt, if there be not legal proof, it will throw its protecting shield around the accused. There is therefore no triumph here except that of the Law. I hope such indecorum will not be repeated, for the persons offending, if discovered, would be immediately committed lo Newgate. His Lordship had no sooner resumed his seat on the bench, than a loud shouting was heard without the Court, proceeding, no doubt, from those who had just learnt the verdict. He immediately rose again, under strong signs of displeasure, and observed as follows : — ' There now, that comes of"—( here the learned Judge looked towards the reporters' box;) but ( suddenly checking himself) " I will not say any thing." Mr. Alley then moved, " that the prisoner be dis- charged :" but Mr. Justice Park resisted this applica- tion. The Grand Jury, he said, had not yet been dis- charged, and the prisoner must be detained to answer to a misdemeanor. Wm. Shee was indicted for stealing one sword, value £ r>. the property of Thomas Rae, on the 2d of Dec. The circumstances of this case were similar to the others. The Prisoner on the day of the riots was ap- prehended near Red Lion- street, Whitechapel, with the sword in his possession, going from the Minories, and the sword was identified by Mr. Rae. There were other two persons in his company, each with pistols but they separated from him and were not taken. He was asked if he was an officer? and he said no, that he had found it iu the Minories. The day was dirty, but there was not the slightest appeaiance of dirt upon the sword. Mr. Hart, a sugar- refiner, gave the Prisoner a good character. The Jury found the Prisoner Guilty. Henry Holdsworth and George Irwin were next put to the Bar, and indicted for stealing, on the. 2d of Decem- ber last, one pistol, the property of Mr. Rae. A fter the. examination of witnesses, Mr. Justice Bur- rough summed up the evidence, and the Jury returned a verdict of Guilty against both prisoners. John Thompson was next indicted for having stolen two blunderbusses, the property of Mr. Rae. Mr. Gurney observed, that the Counsel f'oi the prose- cution were always extremely happy when any circnni stances appeared that could induce them to forbear from staling any tiling against a prisoner. In the pre- sent case, they had heard something so much in favour of the person at the bar, that they would not offer any evidence against him. It was his wish, therefore, that the prisoner should be acquitted. Mr. Justice Park stated to the Jury, that the Counsel for the prosecution, in Ihe exercise of their discretion, had declined going into evidence, and consequently they must acquit the prisoner of ihe offence charged in the indictment • The Jury immediately returned a verdict Not Guilty. Richard Jones, aged 20, was then indicted for having, on the 2d of December, stolen a fowling- piece, the pro- perty of Martin Brandon and Thos. Potts, gun- makers, in the Minories. Mr. Gnrney said they had now disposed of the cases respecting the plunder of Mr. Rae's premises. On the same day, however, ( lie house of Messrs. Brander and Potts, in the Minories, was attacked by ihe same per- sons, and in the same manner, and part, of the property would be traced to the prisoner at the bar. E. Dalton deposed, that he apprehended the prisoner within a short distance of the Minories, with the gun in his possession, which he took from him. There was some powder in the pan, and it appeared to have been • cently discharged. Mr. Potts identified the gun, and had no doubt it had been fired since it was stolen from bi n. The officer declared it had. never been out of his pos- session since he took the prisoner into custody. The prisoner, iu his defence, said he picked it up in the street. Several persons gavebim a good character, when Mr. Justice Park summed up the evidence, and the Jury returned a verdict, Guilty. HORRID MURDER. Drogheda, Jan. 18.—- Our feelings are again outraged, in being under the painful necessity of recording a transaction of the most diabolical nature, which took place on Thursday evening near Ardee: The following particulars we liave learned from a Gentleman. Mr. J. Rath, a re- spectable and wealthy farmer; and an excellent member of society, returned on the above even- ing, from the Quarter Sessions of Ardee, to his house at Irishtown, on the Dundalk road, and about a mile and a half from the fofmer place. Having sat down iu his parlour, with two friends, to dinner, the table lay in front of the window— one of his guests sat a little distance on his right, the other on his left— it was then between 7 and 8 o'clock, and the shutters were not closed. Is this situation some hellish miscreant discharged the contents of a blunderbuss loaded w ith slugs, which carried off the upper part of his head, and scattered the brains of the unfortunate victim about the room; neither of the other persons; we understand, were injured. One of his friends, shortly afterwards, went to Ardee and informed the Police, who, with the military, were in pur- suit of the murderer during the night, but :..<- fortunately did not come up with hiiu.— Trid iy an Inquest was held bv Doctor Blackwell, one of the Coroners of the County, and a Yt tdii t of " Wilful Murder found against persons un- known." Watson, Preston, Hooper, and the others, against whom a Bill of indictment has been found for. conspiracy and riot, are expected to be tried in the court of King's Bench, at the Sittings before Lord Ellenborough. The Quarter Sessions for the city of Norwich commenced on Tuesday. The Recorder, in his charge to the grand jury, expressed his regret at the very great number of offences which ap- peared upon the calendar, which number, he said, exceeded any which he had seen since he had sat upon the Bench. On Saturday there w as some tumult at Dum- fries. There was a short supply of oatmeal in the market, while the people who wanted to buy, saw large quantities shipping to be sent elsewhere.— The mob instantly seized several cartloads and carried them to the market. They also seized a quantity found on the quay and at Ihe mills in the neighbourhood, which they also brought to the market, where some were sold to those who wished to purchase. The Magi- strates instantly swore in a number of consta- bles— order was in a short time restored, and several of the rioters were secured aud sent to jail, but not till the Militia had to charge the mob. The efforts of upwards of 200 consta- bles to restore order were unavailing.—( Morn- ing Paper.} On Wednesday se'nnight, early in the morning, a distressing occurrence happened at the bouse of Mr. Pattison, of Norwood, near Ravensworth. About three o'clock the family were alarmed wit IT Ihe loud shrieks of the female servant for help, when Mr. Pattison's brother and a man servant ( the former armed with a scythe, and the latter wilh some other sharp weapon) repaired to the room where the girl slept. In their hurry to give assistance, they proceeded without a light; but unfortunately coining iu contact, they lace- rated each other most dreadfully before they discovered their mistake. It was afterward* ascertained that this lamentable affair was owing to a young lad in Mr. P.' semploy wishing \ o pay his addresses to the servant m bed, but who made his escape out of the house on the alarm being given. Surgical assistance was immedi- ately procured, and we are happy to state that the wounded are likely to recover.—( Newcastle Paper,) George Nerrell was sentenced at West Sussex Sessions- last week, to seven years> transporta- tion for poaching; and several others, convicted of the same offence, to various periods of solitary confinement. Sacrilege.— On Saturday night last'some person or persons broke into the beautiful Chapel of King's College, Cambridge, and stole the lofty silver candlesticks belonging to the altar. The small door at the East- end was found open next mottling. Daring Robbery.— The- shop window of Mr. John Laroch, of Iligh- street, St. Giles's, was on Tuesday evening driven in with a tremendous crash by a boy apparently about 15 years old, in company with two men: the watches, plate, all ( I jewellery, fell into the street iu all ( iivec'- tions; among the articles stolen is a double- eased gold clock watch of great value. Daring Burglary.— On Sunday evening, as Mrs. Hallam, of Harriot- street, Mecklenburgh- square, was reading to her daughter, three per- sons made their appearance and demanded their money; they ran up stairs, and were followed by the thieves. Their safely was promised on their remaining quiet, and stating where the property could be found. The robbers then ransacked the house, and took away 27/. in notes, which Mrs, H. had received as a dividend last week, and portable articles to the amount of about 30/, This robbery was effected during chapel time, between seven and eight o'clock: the thieves got in at the back window, and they fastentd the family, consisting of Mrs. II. her daughter, and servant maid, in an upper- room, before they left the house. Two robberies have within these few months been committed at Wareham, aud Poole under similar circumstances, which caused meek alarm in those parts. On the evening of the Kith ot June last the house of Dr. Thomas, at Wareham, was broken open while all the family were at church. Some Bank notes, cash, and a little linen were taken: no article of plate was taken: the doors aud drawers were broken-, open, as if done by a workman who understood the business. The robbery, and circumstances attending il, excited so much uneasiness in that part, that Bishop the Officer was sent for, but nothing could be discovered. On the evening of the 29th of December last, the house of Mr. Coward, in the Church- yard, at Poole, was broken open at the time the family were attending Divine Worship. A great manv- people were moving about close to the spot at the time; the church, which is near the house, was crowded. On the return home of Mr. Coward's family the house, was discovered to be on lire in two places. On the ground floor a'chair was on tire, with an apron placed to assist its burning. A bedstead, & c. on the- first floor was in flames ; the house was in con- sequence so extremely full of smoke, that those who entered had great difficulty in avoiding suffocation; however, by the great exertion of « number of persons, it was fortunately put out. It was asceitained that the house had been broken open, aud a number of drawers had been robbed of between 40 and 50 guinea-;, 15/. in Bank notes, a gold watch, some silver coins, & c. There was no trace of the robber. Ad- kins, the officer, went from London to in- vestigate it, when lie had no doubt but the doors and drawers had been broken open by a large screwdriver, and by a man who knew ho\ r to use the tool. He discovered a suspicions character, a journeyman carpenter, who lodged opposite to Mr. Coward's house. On the officer taking him into custody, and telling him he was charged with the robbery, he sai< i he could prove that he was at the Shipwright's Arms public- house between G and 8 o'clock oa the evening of the robbery. This, however, proved to be false. He could not account for the - possession of some coins and notes. These, with other circumstances, caused hinj to- b* committed, LONDON, FRIDAY, JANUARY 24, 1817.

The German Merchants complain. of the New Year's Fair, at Leipsic, which has been very ill attended. A law against rioting, which was enacted in Saxony about the middle of the last century, and used to be annually read from the pulpit, lias just been repealed by proclamation. There has been some disturbance at Dinant, on account of the populace pillaging a maga- zine of rye, belonging to the Prussians* Wheat has risen at Ghent to 29', florins, and rye to 1.8 florins. The dispute between Naples and the United States is said to be still unsettled. Hamburgh, Jan. 3.— On the 21th December last, n general meeting of persons interested in the affairs of the Bank took place in the great saloon of the Borsen- hall: several hundred of them were present. The President of the Com- mittee chosen to manage this important business, Mr. Soltan, gave a very ample report of the results of the endeavours of the deputation sent to Paris, and lately returned fiom thence; which result was represented as advantageous as existing circumstances permitted them to expect. The French Government had made much opposition, anil shown only its willingness to • restore that sum taken away by General Gerard, who, in the name of Louis XVIII. took the. command of the French corps herefrom Davoust, mid which amounted to 1,800,000 francs; but at last it consented, as a particular mark- of its friendship and benevolence for Hamburgh, to acknowledge as a national debt the f-' uin of ten millions, to be inscribed in the name of the Senator Silleai ( one of the deputies) in the rent- book, and to pay the arrears and current interest at the rate of 5 per cent. Ac- cording to this convention, by which all the former arrangements iu behalf of the Bank are finuulled, 100 marks banco rate like 140 francs capital in the French funds, which produces 7 per cent, per annum. The meeting, while it sanctioned the plan adopted, agreed upon a notification to be sent round to the' different proprietors, requiring them to give in their different claims, and to liave their names entered for their proportion of stock, or to have that stock converted into money. Our Senate has committed to one of the most skilful goldsmiths here the execution of a most superb golden box, wherein the freedom of this city, offered to Prince Blucher when here, and accepted by him, will be sent to his Highness. We extract from a Paris paper the following statement respecting the proceedings of the French squadron sent to resume the eastern possessions assigned to Fiance by the treaty of Paris " The French squadron which sailed for the East Indies in May last, safely arrived at Port Louis, in the Isle of France, on the 15th of August. Count Dupois, Peer of France, former Intendant of all the French settlements to the east of the Cap", and who is now in- vested with the title of their civil governor, was re ceived at the above colony in the most friendly manner. The English Governor paid him every attention, and requested him to reside at his house. The inhabitants came. from different districts of the island to see and compliment him, he having been Governor of that island • luring nine years of difficulty. It is added, that the squadron left Fort Lonisin the beginningot September, aud sailed for Pondicherry, the ultimate objcct of the Governor's destination." COURT OF COMMON COUNCIL. A Court of Common Council, convened pur- suant to a requisition signed by large number of members, was held on Thursday at Guildhall, for the purpose of considering " the present alarming state of the country, and petitioning Parliament for a reform and retrenchment in the public expenditure, a reduction of thecnornious and unconstitutional military establishment, and abolition of all useless places and unmerited pensions, and a constitutional reform in the re- presentation of the people in Parliament, by • which alone our national grievances can be ef- fectually redressed, and an adequate security afforded against future encroachments." Previous to the discussion of the principal question, Mr. Aldermen Cox presented a memo- rial from the bankers and merchants of London, praying the use of the Guildhall, for the purpose of exchanging the old silver coin for tiie new, during the fourteen days limited by the act of Parliament. After a few words from Mr. Dixon, the prayer of this memorial was ordered to- be complied with, and the Hall- keeper and surveyor directed to superintend the necessary regulations. Reform Meetings.— There have been meet- ings in the course of the last week, at Birming- ham, Huddersficld, and Sheffield. The resolu- tions at all these places were much the same, of course carried by acclamations by those who heard them, and by those who did not. Thursday evening, a Meeting took place of the inhabitants of the district, at the Globe tavern. Fleet- street, to take into consideration the pro- priety of adopting some measures to ensure more regular and perfect supply of gas from the City Gas- Works, in Dorset- street. After many inflammatory speeches from Mr. Knight and Mr. Sparrow, each laying the blame ofthe present insufficient supply upon the other, and much desultory conversation, a resolution was ulti- mately put from the chair, ( filled by Mr. Shep- herd) and carried nem. ( lis., that a Committee be appointed to confer with the City Gas Company and the public, to be binding equally upon both. On Thursday a Court of Directors was held the East India House, when the following Commanders took leave previous to departing for their respective destinations, viz.— Captain J. Money, Herefordshire, Captain P. Hughes, Bridgewater, for Madras, Prince of Wales Island, and China ; Captain Gribble was sworn into the command of the Princess Charlotte of Wales, destined to Madras aud Bengal. m 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 Com- missaries named by the King follow with ex- actness the operations which began three days since, and w hich proceed slowly, on account of the respect with which they are conducted. New searches have been made, and several witnessess. 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. Each of the gardes du corps held a torch in his hand. 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. NATIONAL MEDALS. As we conceive it to be a kind of public duty to no- tice the progress ofthe FINE ARTS, particularly when they are allied to Patriotism, and do honour to our country, we lately mentioned the commencement of a series of National Medals, intended to record the tri- umphs of British Heroism, and the co- operation of those powers who have so gloriously effected the deli- verance of Europe from miiitiry despotism. We have now to notice the progress of this national work. We described the first fourofthe series, and five more have been finished with equal taste, spirit, and admiiable skill. The first of these five represents Britannia. A Lion, typical of Great Britain, appears on a part of the Helmet. On the other side the Duke of Wellington, is seen planting the lilied flag with one hand and holding a laurel wreath and Palm Branch on the oilier, which rests on a trophy of French military articles and impe- rial ensignia. The inscription is " Battle of Toulouse." The second is symbolical of the revival of war, by the return of Bonaparte from Elba, from which place the French Eagle, is flying. The door of the Temple of Janus has fallen at his approach. On the reverse ap pears Mercury, flying over a part of the Globe, with a scroll inscribed " To Arms." " Declaration of war" surrounds the face of the Medal, and " 13th March" is The Grand Duke Nicholas.— On Thursday morning the Grand Duke Nicholas, soon after eleven o'clock, went in his carriage to the Stage- door of Drury- lane Theatre, for the purpose of inspecting the machinery, scenes, < fcc. behind the curtain, and the whole of the interior of that splendid building together with the Tank, and the works invented by Sir W. Congreve, for extinguishing fire, but owing to a mistake in the delivery ofthe letter from the Grand Duke to Mr. Ward the Secretary, the necessary pre- parations for the exhibition, were not in rea- diness to rcceive his Highness. He consequently went to the Foundling Hospital, and after ex- amining the building, attended by the heads of the establishment, he proceeded to the long rooms, where the children were drawn out in double rows for his inspection : he particularly noticed some of them, patted them on their heads, aud conversed with them. His Imperial Highness expressed himself highly gratified witli the whole of the establishment. The Grand Duke went from the Foundling Hospital to the British Museum, to make a sccond visit ( here; and Thursday not being a day for the admission of the public, his Highness had an opportunity of minutely examining a number of the curiosities which he was prevented from doing on Wciinesdav on account of the great number of visitors who were attracted by curi- osity to seethe Gland Duke. From the British Museum he returned to St. Alban's house, and in a short time after went in a carriage and four to Twickenham, to dine with the Duke and Duchess of Orleans. Tuesday morning, about 11 o'clock the Grand Duke went from St. Alban's House to view the numerous Government Offices, the Royal Academy, & c. The Commissioners, Se- cretaries & c. were in readiness to receive his Imperial Highness. From Somerset House the Grand Duke proceeded to the Admiralty where Lord Melville was in readiness to receive him. on the exergue.

QUEEN- SQUARECurious Complaint.— \ Geiitieriiah who said lie was a Lieutenant Colonel, appeared be- fore the sitting Magistrate, and lodged a complaint against a woman in tile neighbourhood to the following purport :~- Ho. slated that passing along a street in Westminster, called F. re. wer's- grecn, lie saw some, fine looking oranges in a shop window, and told the woman who keeps it, that if she could change him a 1 note he would purchase a dozen oranges. She answered she would readily change the note, and he accordingly gave it in'.,) her hand. She in consequence began counting- out several shillings, but he stopped her, saying, lie did not like the looks of them, and would iiave nothing to do vvilli them, so desired his note again. She replied she would give three shillings and eigliteen- peuny pieces. He said, very well, flmt would do. He ac- cordingly waited some moments; but finding she did net produce any change, he desired to have his note again, but she refused to give either thenote or change. The Magistrate s- nt for the woman; and when she came, lie desired the Colonel to state his complaint before her lace ; he did so, after being sworn, but she was so impatient to be heard, that it required all the authority ofthe Court, and the efforts of the officer in attendance, to keep her from interrupting him.

George Baring ( brother of Sir Thomas and Alexander) has it in contemplation, we understand, to build a chapel in Exeter.— This gentleman, who began life in the mer- cantile line, took orders about three years ago, and became curate to Mr. Biddulph, at a church near Taunton: from whence he removed to a living in Wiltshire, presented by his brother Alexander, but about twelve months ago, he relinquished his benefice, and seceded from the Church. A Sunday School was instituted last May at Ballynahinch, in the North of Ireland, under the patronage of Lady S. Ker, sister of Lord Castle- reagh, who, with a few individuals, assisted the commencement of the school with books and money; her Ladyship also bestowed the most unwearied and personalattention. Upon the third Sunday the church was crowded by children of both sexes from ail parts of the parish, and, not withstanding the inclemency of the season, they generally mustered to from four to five hundred. The breakw ater at Plymouth appears to have been very useful in preventing a great deal of damage. It is supposed that, but for it, all the quays would have been destroyed. The loss of the Mistletoe schooner ( tender to the flag- ship at Portsmouth), with all h r crew, upon the coast of Sussex, whilst cruising in search of smugglers, can no longer bedoubted : she must have foundered in one of the late vio- lent gales. It is ascertained that the ves- sel discovered sunk off Rottindean is not the Mistletoe, but some merchantman. The offi- cers who have unfortunately perished in her are — Lieut. Wade Blake ( Commander); Mr. J. Duncan, Second Master; Mr. Tully, Master's Mate ; Mr. J. Brenham, Midshipman : Mr. T. Kennall, Pilot ; and 32 able seamen and bovs. Antediluvian Animal.— About ten days ago, Mr. Robert Brown, tacksman of the quarry of Greenhill, in the parish of Kilmaurs, Ayrshire, belonging to the Right Hon. the Earl of Eglinton, while removing the earth of the quarry, about seventeen and a half feet below the surface, discovered a large tusk nearly entire, supposed an elephant's measuring when first found three feet five and a half inches long, and one foot and one inch in circum- ference.— There was also another of the same description found not two feet distant from the former, but very much decayed. The earth where these were found is of a dark brown colour, and smells most nauseously when turned up; the general colour of the earth in the quarry is of a very light brown. The lusks were lying flat in the earth, aud several smaller bones near them. Several marine shells were also found amongst the dark coloured earth. The tusk now weighs one stone four and a half pounds English weight, and is in the possession of the Earl of Eglinton. of Pompeii," the Roman name for Pompeluna, and this inscription is illustrated by a Wariior on Horse- back, and a Female, with a turretted head, the ancient symbol of the town, presenting to him the keys. The fourth, on one side, represents the Marquis of Anglesea at the head of his Cavalry, charging the French Impe- rial Guard. A French Granadier is breaking a Standard in despair. The Head of the heroic. Marquis is on the reverse. The fifth Medal bears the head of the Prince Regent. On the reverse is a figure of Victory, resting on an Anchor, and surrounded by Military" Trophies taken from France, and . tandingon a pedestal, inscribed with " Treaties of Paris," and ori the exergue " 80th May 1815, 20 Nov,. 1816." The motto is " Armis et Consiliis." A broken Eagle Standard is the appropriate emblem. The whole of these medals- are executed in ths most masterly style, and, in noticing the progress of the work, we are not simply rendering " a due tribute to the Fine Arts, but recording, with historical pride, the Triumphs of Great Britain and the Restoration of Peace to the Civilized World. New Silver Coinage.— The plan for a simul- taneous delivery and exchange of the new silver coin from the old was finally arranged at the Bank on Friday the 17th hist. Mr. W. Pole met there the Governor and Directors, together with several bankers in the city, who had been convened ou the occasion. lie represented to them, that Government was desirous that the exchange ofthe new silver coin for the old should be attended with the least possible inconveni- ence to the public : with this view it would, lie conceived, be expedient to enter into arrange- ments for enabling all his Majesty's subjects in every part of Great Britain to exchange at the same period the old for the new silver coin of the realm. This exchange the Government would be ready to make ou or before the third day of February. Ou the subject undergoing some discussion, it was considered that the ob- ject would be most easily attained through the medium of the country bankers, provided thev could be prevailed upon to undertake the busi- ness. No doubt being entertained on this head, it was agreed that application should be made to them for that purpose. On the next day ( Saturday) a private meeting was held by the bankers in town, and certain resolutions were come to, expressive of the object in con- templation. By the same night's post, printed copies of the resolutions were forwarded to all the country bankers in the principal towns in the kingdom, with strong recommendations to forward the object of Government in the ex- change of the new coinage. It was further ar- ranged, that Government were to furnish all the Inspectors of coin that could be spared to assist in making the exchange in the great provincial towns ; and where there was any deficiency in this respect, it was hoped the bankers would supply it, by permitting the Cashier of the house to attend on the behalf of Government. nthe event ofany disappointment on the part ofthe country bankers, the Mayor of the town would be requested to undertake the matter, and in failure ofthe Chief Magistrate, the busi- ness was to be resigned into the hands of the Postmaster of the place. The woman, iu a loud voice, and with much cool confidence, told the Magistrate that be did not, as lie said, come into her shop to buy oranges, but to be rude toher; that he put his hand into her neck handker- chief, and left the note there, not for oranges, but as temptation and a bribe to overcome her scruples. He was proceeding to take further liberties with her, but she repulsed him with indignation ; and when be wanted to have the note back again, she rufused to give it. Mr. Plestow told her he had heard her story with great patience, and would give her the choice, either to deliver the note or go to Bridewell. He vvasobliged to repeat this three times before she delivered it up ; when, as soon as she had done, The Magistrate said, that having done the gentleman justice, he was ready to do the same towards her; and if she would lodge a complaint against him, with the clerk, for an assault, be would hear it : and if she proved it to bis satisfaction, he would give her the whole protection of the law. They both went out of Court together, and from her threatening to punishhim, we thought she was going to lodge an information with the clerk ; but the woman on being asked her name by the Clerk, iu order to make out a summons and serve it, immediately ran out of the office, and never returned. The following statement relative to the French Loan, is extracted from a Morning Paper: — " The lenders to furnish the French Go- vernment, or undertake to pay the Allies, 120,000,000, francs, for which they are to receive that amount in French 5 per Cent. Stock, at 70 francs per cent.; the loan to be for ten years, at the expiration of which the creditors are to be paid the amount ofthestock at par, which will be G00,000,000fr. They of course receive the interest of 80,000, OOOf. per annum, which is paid, like the other, semi- annually. This with the difference they gain upon tli, e stock, in taking it at 70fr, and re- ceiving it at par, gives them an annual interest or benefit of lli percent In consequence of some doubts existing at one time respecting the completion of the Loan, the Rentes fell to 5' if. 00c.; they, however, rose again to 6If. 50c. and are now expected to go higher. Mr. Baring's arrival in Paris being known, there is plenty of paper on London at 2 If. 50c. but no takers at any price: it is quite nominal." It is said that the indisposition of Mr. George Rose will prevent him from attending his duty in Parliament, aud that a negotiation is on the tapis for his retirement.— Evening paper. The ale- brewers Iiave given notice to their customers of raising the price of that beverage 10s. per barrel. Amber is also to experience ail advance. The brewers seem to levy taxes on the public whenever they think proper and ap- parently without control.— Evening Mail. The following is a Recipe, given in an Ameri can 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 dis- solved, 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 pulve- rized yellow arsenic, and stir the whole together ; let it be laid on with apaiutor white- wash brush, and if the wall has not been painted before, two, or even three coals will be requisite. To paint a common sized room with this colour, will not cost more than five or six dollars. If a pea- green is required put in less, aud if an apple- green more of ibe yellow arsenic. Escape from the Rules of the King's Bcnch Prison.—' Thursday the Court of King's Bench propounded tin order for future regulation, touching the privilege of the Rules of the King's Bench Prison, whereby it is declared, that any person permitted to enjoy the said Rules, who shall escape therefrom, shall he incapable of ever again enjoying the said privilege, and shall be forthwith confined within the walls ofthe prison, unless this Court shall otherwise order. At the Berks Sessions, R. Brown, baker, of Maidenhead, was refused the benefit of the In- solvent Act, the Court determining he had acted with gross injustice towards his creditors. An information was laid last week by J. Field, of Staines and another informer, against three medical gentlemen of Amesbury, Wilts, for selling spirits of wine without a retail spirit license. The Magistrate at Salisbury decided against the infoimers, on the ground that spirits of wine are a medicine; and abjured them, if they laid " claim to the appellation of Christians, never again to engage in so infamous, so wicked a transaction. Fox Chase.— On Monday, the 13th instant, the harriers belonging to R. L. Algood. Esq. threw off at Brady's Crag, where a fox broke cover. He took over Stagshaw, Bank, thence to Ayton Dean, Whittle Dean, and to Horsley vil- lage. Being there headed, he took a north di- rection towards Harlow- liill, Dissington, Bitch- field, and Belsay, without a check, a distance of 26 miles. From the quantity of hares in Belsay- Park, Reynard was unfortunately lost, Out of 22 horsemen in the field, onlyG arrivedat Belsay. Two of the horses are since dead, and others dangerously ill.—( Newcastle Paper.). Boxing for a Wife.-— A battle of much earnestness, but ludicrous in effect, took place on Tuesday in Islington fields, between a shopman to a grocer, and a feather- maker. The com- batants were friends,, and lodged together in Fetter- lane. The former had for some lime paid his addresses to Miss R. a feather- maker, in Creed- lane, and had often made merry at Bagnigge Wells, but on introducing his friend to the lady last week, she transferred her love, and this led to the combat. Professional seconds at- tended. Six rounds were fought without any signs of hitting, when the grocer told his ad- versary be had better resign, but lie refused like a Falstaff. In the seventh round, the grocer received a hit on the forehead, as if fr<> nt a boy eight years old. lie significantly turned to his second and asked if tie did not think he should have a black eye, as if so, he should lose his situation; no, no, replied the second, you are all right. In setting- to in the next round, lie felt hiseye repeatedly, but fortunately iu the 8th round, he scrambled the feather- maker down upon his face, and his nose bled. With the eye and the nose, the seconds could not prevail on either to meet again, and the buttle was drawn, to the amusement of one hundred spectators. A Curious STERLING Fact.— A person who keeps a shop in Hounslovv having occasion the other day to go to his back warehouse, per ceived a huge rat busily employed in demo- lishing some 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 perceiving his foe ran off, and imme- diately made for the hole through which it is supposed he entered the premises. His pur- suer, just as the rat was about to enter this retreat, levelled a pretty warm blow at him, and struck the stick ( which was rather a stout one) w ith some force against the wainscot of the room ; when, to bis vast astonishment, as well as to hisjoy, a most complete SHOWER OF GOLD ( guineas) instantly descended from some lodg- ment within the wainscot before his wandering eyes 1— This extraordinary circumstance, very naturally, suggested the propriety of repealing the blow, expecting a repetition of the same good fortune— nor indeed was he, in his expecta- tion and wishes, disappointed. When he had gathered the whole of his golden store, he found, upon counting, he had absolutely picked up upwards of 350 guineas !— From the appearance of the gold, it is supposed this hoard must havt been secreted within the wainscot for many, very many years. The house, it seems, has been in the occupation of the present occupier's . father and relatives tut nearly a century, ( SunJ HOOP- d most efficacious remedy for the above complaints is, with confidence, offered to tin- public in TOWER'S PA- TENT NEW LONDON COUGH TINCTURE,; a medicine founded upon the experience of many years, and which its own merits h; ive recommended from family to family.

HICKMAN'S DIURETIC PILLS. HIS celebrated Medicine, by numerous and most extraordinary cures, has sufficiently esta- blished its reputation as a remedy for the Gravel and every disease occasioned by a vitiated action of the urinary organs, to require no further recommendation.

Acting on these principles, HICK- MAN'S PILLS are recommended with confidence to every patient afflicted with disorders arising from the I'Lid. nies ai d Binder, whether as Gravel, Lumbago, Pains in the Back or Loins, Stoppages of Urine, or whatever other form they may assume.

PLOUGHMAN'S DROPS. An Extract of a Letter to Dr. Smith of Upton Magna, near Shrewsbury. SHREWSBURY, DEC. 12, 1816. SIR,— I had the misfortune, very lately, of contractingthe Vcncral complaint insoshockinga manner, that I was reduced to a skeleton; and being over persuaded ( as many are by external appearance,) I applied to many very eminent Physicians in Shrews- bury, but not the least hope of amendment appeared. I then went to the Salop Infirmary, and was an in- pa- tient for 18 weeks: but being no better I came out iu the following state, ( viz.) my spirits were depressed, and my face and body were entirely covered with blotches, by the disorder— through taking mercurial perscrip- tions. I lived with a respectable Doctor at Shrewsbury, but he could do me no good ; I then applied to you Sir, and by takinga few bottlesof yom- Drops, I have found a safe cure. To conclude, I cannot find words suffi- cient to be thankful enough to God and to you, for so safe a cure; and for the good of the world, I wish you to make it public.— And remain, Sir, Your most obedient and very humble servant, R.

Johnson, was capi- tally indicted for stealing on the 21st July, 217 pieces of Bandana silk handkerchiefs, value .£ 2110 and upwards, from the Duke of Wellington East Indiaman, the pro- perty of John Howard; and Michael Murray was in- dicted for feloniously counselling and inciting the said James Hatton and others to commit the said felony. The preliminary proof, that the goods in question were on hoard the vessel the day previous to the robbery, being gone through, Thomas Curtis repeated the evi- dence which he gave before the Police Magistrates as to the perpetration of the robbery by himself, Hat- ton, Giddons and Murray. On cross- examination he admitted himself to have been a thief five years, but iffected not to know what the word felonij meant John Giddons also detailed the particulars of the rob- bery. Murray, lie said, gave, them the information as to the Bandanas lying down the main hatchway. The booty " was divided at Cm tis's house. Witness sold his share to Mr. Walker, at Deptford. The statements of Curtis and Guidons, as far as related to Hatton, were, in several particulars, eorroboiated by other witnesses. The Jury returned a verdict— Hatton, Guilty— Murray Not Guilty. of M. Pasquier, now Keeper of the Seals and Minister of Justice, that a fresh President is to be chosen. A Dutch mail arrived on Saturday. The im- portation ol Corn into the French ports being on the decline, it is become necessary to have recourse to extraordinary measures for the sup- ply of the Northern Departments. The latest accounts, from Cltmbiay contradict the report of ail intention to diminish the army of occupa- tion. In'the Netherlands the populace have proceeded to acts of violence, in consequence of the passing of the law permitting the free passage of corn through the Netherlands to France. They broke open some magazines a! Dinant, and began the Work of pillage; but they were happily checked by the arrival of the police. ( new) Fine Ditto While . Fine Superfine Rye ...... Barley ....

The irregularity of the supply ol these . articles is severely felt at Dieppe, w hich contains a population of more than 20,000 inha- bitant. At the latter plac. e flour is selling at 15 sous per lb. Aucnts are said to have arrived in this coun- try from the Patriots of the Spanish colonies, for the purpose of inducing half- pay officers of the army and navy tojoin their cause. It was rumoured in the City on Friday that Government had an intention to reduce the du- ties oil the importation of timber from Norway, . which amount almost to a prohibition. ctive balances at the bankruptcy there were in Hie hands of the bankrupts hou e, notes of the solvent house, amounting together to iOsO, payable to boariTat the batik ' at Maidstone, oi at their agents in London. The plaintiffs oil the other hand had noles of llie bankrupts to a larger amount, which were then unpaid, so that upon the balance there would be a debt due to the'plaintiffs from the bankrupts. ' 1 he point mainly relied ripoti bv tlie plaintiffs at the trial, was, that the defendant who was provisional assignee of the bankrupts, came down to Maidstone, and being informed that the notes in question were covered by notes oflhe bankrupts in the Hands of the plaintiffs, and would be set off in account^. » n proof, before the Com- missioners , lie, nolyi'itiistahding this information, took away the notes to London, and received the noney for them at tile plaintiffs banking agents in town, who n it knowing the circumstances under which they had been obtained by the defendant, paid them readily. At the trtul, Lord Ellenborough was of opinion, that as the notes had not been separated from the rest of the bankrupts effects, they still remained the property of the assignees, and his Lordship was at a loss to see iiow an action for money had and received could be maintained under such circumstances, but said that probably the accounts between the bankrupts and the plaintiffs might be released by another sort of action. The Learned Counsel then acquiesced in his Lord- ibip's opinion, but upon consideration he thought the pase might be put iu another way, by the 5th Geo. 2d, cap. 30, sec. 28, the Commissioner.-, were bound to take in account of the mutual debts between the bankrupt and his customers, and allow no more to be proved against the estate than the balance found to be due. He now submitted, therefore, as the defendant was apprized of the claim, - winch the plaintiffs had against the bankrupts estate, which would more than cover the amount of t'uf notes, lie could not by means of fraud possess himself of available securities which had been satisfied by another mode, and he could be in no better situation than the bankrupts themselves would be. Lord Ellenborongh said, that his notion at the trial was, that the sort of action which the plaintiffs ought to have brought was Trover; but upon consideration, lie was not clear that the plaintiffs might not w aive the Tort and bring an action for money had and received for the amount of the notes. His Lordship, therefore, thought the case worthy of further consideration. Rule nisi granted. SMITHFIELD— MONDAY, JAN. 27. To sink the Offal per stone of Bibs.

MURDER OF LIEUTENANT JOHNSON.— Neither of the prisoners upon ibis charge were brought op on Saturday, at this Office. Mr. Kinnaird, however, ordered Giddons to lv brought before him, and men- tioned the substance of the preceding Saturday in his presence. Giddons said he knew Mrs. Potter to- be a prating mischievous woman. His wrist, he observed, could not have been injured in a fair way, for he would have had it set. Mr. Kinnaird—" Do you still continue to charge those men w ith the murder. I beg that you w ill con- sider, w ith all the awe so natural upon such an occasion the effect of your words." Giddous—'' I still persist in what I have said." Mr. Kinnaird—" I hope yon are not so benighted at tn aggravate, your^ giiilt by a representation calculated to do you eternal injury. It is of very little consequence to poor Hatton whether the charge be established or not ; as he will probably suffer upon the late verdict. But it will be of infinite satisfaction to ihe public milid to have it determined." Giddons-" What I have said is true. You have found it to be so. There are a good many things yet to come forward, and I shall tell truth then to." Gid- dons made this reply in a saucy tone, and seemed as- tonished that his word should be doubted. Mr. Kin- naird told him that his linger could not give any force to his veracity, and that humility would have been much more decorous. Mr. Kinnaird has received the affidavit of a man named Goodwin, which was sworn in J811. It states that a man named Nightingale, who was formerly in the Tower- Hamlets Militia, had proposed to the depo- nent to commit robberies ; and upon hearing one night the name of Lieutenant Johnson, bad mentioned that be had his watch." In consequence ofthis affidavit, Mr. Kinnaird asked Giddons whether he remembered a man of that name, to which a reply in the negative was given ; Giddons at the same time stating, that the stranger w ho was with them, wore a jacket. Saturday next was appointed for a final examination. Giddons has been frequently informed, that notwithstanding all the statements he hasmade, he must stand his trial for stealing tea out of the Gravesend luggage- boat, upon which charge he was apprehended on the 3d day of November. There is also a charge of highway robbcry igainst him. PRICE OF LEATHER.
