A Dutch Mail arrived on Wednesday morning: " Brussels, Jan. 27.— We receive from ali quarters from tlie parts w here the troops of the Army of Occupation ate cantoned, unanimous reports respecting the generosity of the com- manders, ollicers, and even of ihe soldiers. In all the garrison towns subscriptions have been opened for the relief of the indigent. " The troops in the cantonments contribute also, on their side, by various means, to lessen the distresses of the poor. The French Minister at war lias signified in the King's name, to the Commanders of the Second Corps, his thanks for this benevolent and generous conduct. " A great many vessels laden with corn, for the Russian and Prussian troops, have arrived at Givet, and more are expected " January 29 — The prices of corn are fallen in several markets in Flanders, at Antwerp, Lou vain, and Brussels. A farther decline is expected to- day. In the French ports, too, more corn begins to arrive; several vessels laden with corn arrived lately at Havre." French Abolition of the Slave Trade.— Paris Journals of Sunday arrived on Wednesday night, and the only paragraph of political interest which they contain seems, in the hurry of othei business, to have escaped the Morning Papers The Bulletin of the Laws has the following Ordinance:— Louis, & c. Art. 1. Every vessel, whether French or fo- reign, which shall attempt to introduce into any ot our Colonies purchased Blacks, shall be con- fiscated, and the Captain, if a frenchman, shall be deprived of all command. The whole Cargo shall in like manner be con- fiscated, although not consisting of Slaves : with respect to " the Negroes, they shall be em- ployed on public works of utility in the Colony. Art. 2. The contraventions forbidden in the preceding Article shall be tried according to the same forms as contraventions of the laws and regulations for foreign commerce. As for the produce of the confiscations pronounced in con- formity to the said Article, it shall be realized and applied in the same manner as the produce of confiscations pronounced in matters of the contravention of the laws concerning foreign- commerce. Art. 3. Our Minister, & c. ot the Marine and Foreign Colonics is charged with the execution of the present Ordinance. Given at the Tuileries, & c. Jan. 8, 1817. Paris, Ft I). 2.— Yesterday all the Ministers met at a Council, at which his Majesty presided. The Council sat till night. The Members of the Royal Court of Besan- con have given up a thirteenth of their salaries to the relief of the Poor. Accounts from Cadiz state, that the Spanish army destined for South America was on the point of departure; the English furnish the ships intended for its conveyance ! They were momentarily expected, and the troops were con- centrated for embarkation. The Chamber of Deputies was yesterday em- ploved in discussing the Law of Debtor and Creditor, but came to no conclusion. One Member, M. Piet, thought that foreigners should nut be allowed the benefit of the law of 1798, which imported, that at the expiration of five years imprisonment the debtor should recover bis liberty by full right. lie mentioned the example of an Englishman arrested for a large debt, who preferred remaining five years at St. Pelagic to paying his debt, also a similar instance of a Chinese, PRINCE REGENTS COURT. 1 Wednesday the Prince Regent held a Court at Carlton- house, for the purpose of receiving the Address of the Lord Mayor and Court of Aldermen, upon his late escape from the attack of the mob ill St. James's- park. At 1 o'clock a detachment of the life- guards marched and took their station opposite to Carlton- house, iu Pall- mall, to assist the Police. A guard of honour of the grenadier foot- guards marched into the court- yard of Carlton- house about the same time. The city procession arrived at Carlton- house at two o'clock. The Prince Regent being seated on his throne, surrounded by his Cabinet Ministers, and his Officers of State, the Lord Chamberlain in due form conducted to his presence the deputation, consisting of the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor, accompanied by Sir Wm. Curtis, Sir Charles Price, Sir James Shaw, Sir John Perring, Sir Wm. Leighton, Mr. Alderman J. J. Smith, Sir Wm. Domville, Mr. Alderman Birch, Mr. Alder man C. Smith, Sir M. Bloxam, Mr. Alderman Atkins, Mr. Alderman Goodbehere, Mr. Alder- man Heygate, George Brydges, Esq. and Robert Kirby, Esq. Sheriffs; the Recorder, Common Serjeant, Town Clerk, Remembrancer, and Solicitor.— The Recorder then read the Address as follows: — To his Royal Highness the Prince of WALES, Regent of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. The humble and dutiful Addressof the Lord Mayor and Aldermen of the City of London. May it please your Royal Highness, We, the Lord Mayor and Aldermen of the City of London, beg leave to approach your Royal Highness with profound sentiments of duty and respect, to ex- press our horror and indignation at the most daring and flagitious outrage offered to your Royal Person at the moment of your return from the House of Parliament, on the occasion of your Royal Highness exercising the sacred duties of the Crown", and fulfilling, in the name and on the behalf of his Majesty, the very important function of one of the estates of the realm. With the deepest concern we have to deplore that any one should be found within his Majesty's dominions capable of violence so atrocious, so disgraceful to human nature, so foreign to the British character; and we most fervently hope, that the loyalty of the subjects of the United Empire will manifest itself to prevent a re- petition of an attempt so base against the sacred person of your Royal Highness. We beg permission to add, that nothing shall be wanting on our part, as Magis- trates of the Metropolis of the Empire, to promote on all occasions the general tranquillity, and to evince otir steady loyalty and attachment to your Royal House and Person, and our determination to support the Crown and dignity of these realms. Signed by order of Court, HENRY WOODTHORPE. To which his Royal Highness was pleased to return the following most gracious answer:—• " I thank you for this loyal and dutiful Address. It is highly satisfactory to me to receive upon this occa- sion, and at the present conjuncture, these assurances of your steady attachment to me and my family, and of your determination to piomote obedience to the laws, and to afford a firm support to the Crown, the preroga- tives of which are inseparably connected with the li- berties and best interests of the people." They were all most graciously received, and had the honour to kiss the Prince Regent's hand. This Address is considered a very novel one, there having been only three Addresses to the Sovereign from Ihe Court of Aldermen during the present reign: one of them was upon the assassination of Mr. Perceval. PUBLIC DECLARATIONS. ] The town of Halifax, in Yorkshire, lias pub ; lished a Declaration, in which they say— " We have a perfect confidence that Govern mcnt will do all that can be done lo relieve the difficulties and distresses of the country, but we are aware that time alone can fully accomplish this desirable object. We firmly determine to exert all our energies in opposition to the blasphemous and seditious doctrines which are so generally promulgated al the Clubs and Meetings which disgrace our country at the present moment: and we as firmly determine to exert ourselves in support of our beloved King aud our admirable Constitution; in support of that King and of that Constitution which have enabled the British Empire to become the rallying point of all Europe, and finally the preservation of all civilized Society." The town of Huddersfield declares, " We strongly deprecate their systems of politics, un- known in the history of this country, particularly Ihe wild and dangerous schemes of Universal Suffrage and Annual Parliaments, as tending to produce scenes of animosity, riot, anarchy and ruin. In their indiscriminate contempt of all rank and authority, iu the organized system of their Committees, in the profligate character of their leaders, in their attempts to set the poor at variance with their superiors, and in the language of intimidation so openly avowed, we recognize some of the leading features of the French Revo- lutionists, who covered their country with blood." At the General Quarter Sessions of the Peace held at Ripoti, for the Borough and Liberty of Kipon, on Monday last, there was not a single felon for trial, or any offence of a serious de- scription brought before the Court. A number of the neighbouring Gentry, and most of the Grand Jury voluntarily offered themselves, and were sworn in as special constables: and an association, declaratory of the loyalty and at- tachment of the subscribers to the King and the genuine principles of the Constitution, and of their determination to unite for the defence of Government and the maintenance of public tran- quillity, was entered into by the Magistrates anrl Gentlemen present, and has since been sub- scribed by most of the gentry aad respectable tradesmen in the towu and neighbourhood. The following declaration was, on Friday, signed by nearly alt tbe more respectable housc- liclders, in Marsden, in Yorkshire. " We the undersigned, householders within the Chapelry of Marsden, do hereby declare. " That we arc firmly attached to his Majesty King George the Third and his Government: " That we detest and abhor the atrocious at- tempts now making by mischievous and wicked men to subvert our happy Constitution iu Church and State: " And, that we are ready to assist, to the utmost of our power, the Civil Authorities ill the suppression of tumult and outrage, and in pre- servation of established order and peace." On Wednesday night the Duke of Wellington gave a grand dress ball at Paris, to the Princes and Princesses of the Royal family aud several persons of distinction. The King of France has ennobled M. Grein, } he son- in- law of Clery, and authorized his fa- mily to assume the pame of thip distinguished servant of his murdered Brother. Clery died at Itzieg, near Vienna, where this simple and affect- ing Inscription is seen upon his tomb— " Here lies the faithful Clenj." The Duke of Kent. — The Journal des Debats, of the 2d inst. contains the following article ;— " The Duke of Kent, brother of the Prince Regent, is to marry the Princess Marie Victoire of Saxe- Coburg, Princess Dowager of Linances, and eldest sister of Prince Leopold, the Consort uf the Princess Charlotte of Wales. The Prin- cess Marie was born the 17th of August, 1706.— The Duke of Kent was born 2d November, 1768. —( German Journals.) Advices reached town on Monday from Rio Janeiro to the 12th of December, by which it appeared that there had been a good deal of fighting and skirmishing between the Insurgents and Portuguese : the former of whom had boast ed of having gained great advantages, which the latter as stoutly denied. But if it be true, as stated, that the ball- cartridges of the Portuguese turned out to be somewhat too large for their muskets, it may easily be believed that the in- surgents had gained the advantages. They speak of the loss of a valuable Portuguese store- ship. Prince Regent's Levee.— Thursday being the day appointed by the Prince Regent for holding a public Levee at Carlton House, a guard of honour, from the 3d regiment of Foot Guards, under the command of Colonel Sir James Hope, with the band of the same regiment, in their splendid state uniform, which has been present- ed to them by their Royal Commander, the Duke of Gloucester: a detachment of the Life Guards, with their full band of trumpets and kettle drums, arrived soon after, and took their station iu Pall- mall to assist the Police. The company began to arrive at one o'clock, and continued arriving till half past three, without cessation. It was one of the most numerous Levees that is recol- lected, both as to the Nobility who were present, as to other persons of distinction and rank; in short, it was adav of rejoicing and congratulation of subjects rotiud their Prince and Sovereign, on his escape from the late treasonable attempt on his Royal Person. THE ROYAL MARRIAGE. Wednesday the Duke and Duchess of Glou- cester received the Address front the House of Commons upon their nuptials. Their Royal Highnesses returned the following answer:— " We receive with the greatest satisfaction this proof of the attention and regard of the House of Commons, and return llicm our very sincere thanks for their con- gratulation, and the interest they are pleased to take in our happiness." On Monday afternoon, at 5 o'clock, her Ma- jesty received the Addresses of the two Houses of Parliament, upon the marriage of the Princess Mary with the Duke of Gloucester. Among ihe Members who attended Ihe deputation were, the Earl of Rosslyn, Lord Clive, Lord Valletort, Lord George Beresford, Ac. Her Majesty was at- tended by Earl Morton, her Chamberlain, and the Countess ot Harrington, as the Lady in Waiting. The still- born child of the Duchess of Cum- berland was buried on Sunday night, at twelve o'clock, in the vault of King Henry the 7th's Chapel, Westminster Abbey. The Duke of Cumberland, and his daughter in- law, ( the Prin- cess Salms) attended, and were accompanied by Madame Dubourgh and another Lady. The Dean of Westminster and the Rev. Mr. Blom- berg wituessed the interment, though as the in- fant was still born, no church service was read. Both Houses of Parliament, on Monday night, voted their thanks to Lord Exmouth, Sir D. Milne, Admiral Capellan and their gallant com- panions in arms, for the splendid victory at Algiers. Never were acknowledgments better merited, and it affords us great satisfaction to observe, that as the beginning of the war was rendered glorious by the exploits of our navy, the valour of the same service has shed a halo of such matchless bistre round its close. This very illustrious transaction has procured for the Leader the immortal title of " The Christian Hero," and all his brave Sailors sharing in the honour, have revived the fame of our naval great- ness, which only slept for a season, because no- thing had been' left for the gallantry of British Tars to achieve. The Grand Duke Nicholas is preparing for his western tour. His Imperial Highness proposes leaving England about the latter end of March. On the 1st of May, he is to be married to the Princess Charlotte of Prussia. The Emperor, his brother, is expected to witness the ceremony at Berlin. Wednesday morning the Grand Duke, with his suite went to view Chelsea College, the receptacle forour veteran soldiers, aud 1 he Mili- tary Asylum, in the same neighbourhood, for the educating and bringing up young soldiers. On Monday last his Imperial Highness the Grand Duke Nicholas paid a visit to the East India House and Warehouses. His Highness expressed the highest satisfaction, and con- descended to partake of an elegant collation, which was prepared in the Correspondence- room. The Court of Directors, in a Letter to Baron Nicholay, signified their sense of the honour conferred on them, requesting that his Excellency would be pleased to intimate to his Imperial Highness their wish to be allowed to present, for his acceptance, ten pieces of muslin and two shawls, as specimens of Indian ma- nufacture. It is said, that the tenure of the magnificent house near St. James's Palace, w hich was granted to the first Duke of Marlborough, about 100 years ago expires with the death of the late Duke ; and now reverts to the Crown. This was the house in which Queen Anne resided before she ascended the Throne ; it would scarcely be possible to find a town mansion more suitable to the Heiress of the Britis Throne ; and in all probability it will now be granted to the Princess Charlotte and her illus- trious Consort. We are happy to hear that the Right Hon. John M'Mahon, alter a most severe illness, is convalescent, anil beginning to resume the dis- charge of the duties of his important office.— Sir Philip Francis ( the suspected Author of Junius), and Col. M'Mahon, are esteemed two of the best Letter writers of the present day. Extract of a letter from Donaghee, dated Jan. 25.— On Monday last, about a mile and a half south of Girvan, in Scotland, a vessel called tiie Blue Bonnet, of Stranraer, Captain Bevan, was wrecked, and the crew drowned ; the vessel was coal- laden, from Irvine. A singular circum- stance occurred respecting a man who intended to take his passage by this vessel. lie had his bundle of clothes on board, and by some unac- countable impulse, rather wished ^ uot to embark, but, as it were, evaded the time of call when desired to go on board, as they were, just going to sail— so the vessel left him. — On his hearing of this, he proceeded along- shore, and saw something floating, in appearance like his pack- age, which had been on board ; when to hi utter astonishment, he fonnd it was the Captain with whom be had held a conversation only few hours before." If is much feared, that Mr. Robert Anderson, author of The Cumberland Ballads, & c. has met with a watery grave. He embarked at Belfast, about seven weeks ago, in company with one Robert Peat, a native of Cumberland, and seve- ral others, on board the Catharine, of Maryport which vessel has not since been heard of. The broken boat of the Catharine, however, was lately washed ou skwe at the mouth of Mary- port harbour. CORONERS' INQUESTS. Charge of Murder.— On Tuesday afternoon an Inquisition was taken at the Rose anil Crown public- house, Booth- street, Spitalfields, before J. W. Unwin, Esq., Coroner, upon view of the body of John Robinson, who met his death in the following manner on Sunday morning last : Mr. Edward Brown, surgeon opened the body of the deceased on Monday night. There was an inflammation of the stomach which might have caused death, and excessive drinking might have caused the inflammation. John Johnson, an officer of the Court of Re quests, Guildhall, said, that on Saturday evening, about half- past seven o'clock, be went to the Mail Coach public- house, Sherborne- laue, for the purpose of serving an attachment or writ upon Henry Harris ( who is in custody), one of the guards of the mail- coaches, at the suit of a Mr. Pearce. Hearing that Harris, the prisoner, was rather a turbulent character, he obtained the assistance of the deceased, who, together with the plaintiff, went to the house mentioned. Here the witness gave a long account of the violent opposition made by Harris when they attempted to arrest him; he struck the deceased several severe blows of which he afterwards complained The outrageous conduct of Harris was proved by several witnesses ; and the son of Robinson said he In aid his father complain oft he bruizes in his stomach and the beating he received, until his death, which took place on Sunday morning; but lie did not think he should die when he made such a complaint.— The inquest was ad journed over from Tuesday till Wednesday, when the medical men who had examined the body said it did not appear to have any external marks of violence; and that his death might have been caused by an inflammation of the stomach. The Coroner, in recapitulating the evidence, observed, that the testimony of the medical Gen- tlemen served to throw much doubt as te Hie criminality of the case. He left if, however, for them to decide, without further observation, The Jury having retired for about twenty mi- nutes, returned a verdict of—" Wilful Murder against Henry Harris." A most horrid murder was committed at . Little Baddow, Essex, ou Sunday morning, upon the body of an illegitimate male child, about 12 years old. The parents being both dead, the child was put out by the parish lo nurse with Ann Campain, tbe sister of the child's mother, who is tbe daughter of of a labouring man of the same name, residing neat the Rodney public- house at Little Baddow. In consequence of some words which arose between the father and the daughter, which the presence of the poor infant child was somewhat the cause of, this Ann Campain, who is about 18 years of age, de- clared over night that she would drown the | child and herself also. To the surprise of the poor man, the child and the girl were both missing tiie next morning; and recollecting her threat, he immediately went to a pond near Graces, about a mile aud a half from his cottage, and there, so clear was the water, that he dis- covered the infant at the bottom, quite dead, with its hauds tied, one behind and the other before. Having thus found the child, he con- cluded that the unnatural nurse had completed her threats, and that she also was in the water. Without loss of time, lie applied to Mr. Sim- mons, who assisted him by drawing down the water, but the daughter was not found. Upon further search, this most inhuman creature was discovered iu her father's house having got over the ceiling of a room, into the roof. The Coro- ner's Inquest has since been held upon the body of the child, aud a verdict of Wilful Murder returned by the Jury against the said Ann Cam- pain, and she w as in consequence sent to prison. An Inquisition was taken ou Wednesday be- fore Thomas Stirling, Esq. at the corner of Percy- street, Tottenham- court- road, upon the body of Mary Walker, w ho was housemaid to Mrs Jackson, of Percy- street. James Smithers, coachman to Mrs. Jackson said that he was ordered on Monday to have the carriage ready in the evening to take a child to school : he left a box by mistake behind him, and the decease ! seeing it after he had gone off with the coach, ran after him with it. He was called lo in Oxford- street, by a man, who informed him that the deceased was calling after him. He stopped the carriage and saw that she was running with the box in her hands ; she was crossing the road and fell down quite insensible under the pole of a hackney- coach, which w as standing in a rank, lie put her in his coach, drove her home, and went for a surgeon. He believed the great exertion had caused her death; she was not hurt by falling under the hackney coach. He asked if she had hurt her leg ; she said, " no, it is not my leg," and put her hand to her heart. She never spoke after. She had been very cheerful during tiie whole of the day on which she died. Verdict,—" Died by overexerting herself." COURT OF KING'S BENCH, MOMIAY, FEB. 3. The King v. Watson, Hooper, and Others. The Attorney- General said, that he had been instructed to apply to their lordships, to appoint a day for the trial at bar of certain defendants, who had been indicted for a misdemeanour, which indictment bad been removed into this court, and to which the defendants had seve- rally pleaded not guilty. Lord Ellenborough, after consulting with the rest of the bench, observed that at present the Court was of opinion, that the second Thursday in next term would be a convenient day. Iiis Lordship then inquired if the 1st of May was a dies non, and tbe Attorney- General replying iu the negative, it was ordered that the trial should stand for thai dav. The final examination of Thomas Scott, charged as a principal in the late atrocious and disgraceful outrage upon the Prince Regent, took place on Wednesday, when no evidence was adduced to support the charge of High Treason, and Scott was held to bail for a Misdemeanour, John Boney, a wood- cutter, residing at Shore- ditch, was, on Thursday, taken to Lord Sid^ mouth's Office, on suspicion of being the person who threw the stone which broke the window of the Prince Regent's carriage. A great num- ber of persons, including the wife of the prisoner, were assembled on the outside of the Office. At the late Surrey Sessions, Charles Finch Matthew Gilliam, William Jelly, Reuben Cort- nidge, and Joseph Bone, were tried for a very gross assault on Thomas Clinch, at Patcham. The parties had been playing at cards in a pub- lic- house, when a dispute arose about a pot of ale, and a scuffle ensuing, Church fell, cryin « - out, " My leg is broke !" Gilliam replied", " I'll doctor your leg." The prosecutor begg d for mercy, and pulled down his stocking to show them the fracture, but they inhumanly seized him by his fractured limb, and dragging him into the street, put him into a cart, pretending to take him home ; instead of which, they turned him out of the cart into the river, and left him to crawl out, refusing him the least as- sistance. They were all found guilty. Finch being in an extremely ill state of health, was fined sixpence, and having entered into sureties to keep the peace, was discharged; Gilham was ordered to be imprisoned six months ; Jelly and Cortnidge four months each j and Bone two months. Worship street.— TueSday, Mason, the pauper of Hoxton farm- house who was taken on sus- picion of robbing and maiming Mr. Jones, jun. of Ivy- place, was re- examined and discharged, there being no evidence sufficient to implicate him in the above transaction. The zeal and activity displayed by the officers of this office in their endeavours to find out ihe delinquent, we have every reason to believe, have not been unavailing. William Clark, a notorious offender was apprehended on Wednesday night at the Black Bull, Kingsland- road, and examined on the above case. A pawnbroker of Brick- lane swore to Clark selling him two gold seals, one gold key and - ring. These articles were iden- tified, and sworn to by Miss Jones, as being the property of her brother, who w as so inhumanly treated on Thursday evening, in the Curtain- road. He was remanded for a second examina- tion on Wednesday. Burglary and Extensive Robbery.— Thomas alias John Walton, who was tried at the last Old Bailey Sessions for the murder of Stanton, the sailor, at the coffee- shop in Dyott- street, St. Giles's, and afterwards for a highway robbery, is once more in custody on the charge of com- mitting a burglary on the night of the llth of December last, in the house of Mary Burford, of Putney, a laundress, and robbing her of a great number of shirts and various sorts of va- uable linen intrusted to her charge by various customers in that town and neighbourhood. Pace, the officer of Queen- square, having secured him in Newgate immediately after his late acquittal, by application to the Judge, in consequence of a strong suspicion that he had committed the above burglary and robbery, obtained a search- warrant, by virtue of which he searched Walton's lodgings, and with the assistance of Trusman, one of the constables of St. Giles's parish, there apprehended Emma Burford, who had for some time mbited with Walton, and who is the daughter of the person whose house was broken open and plundered as above- mentioned. On searching Walton's lodging, several shirts and other articles of linen were found ; and on Friday last an ex- amination of Walton and Emma Burford took place before the Bench of Magistrates at Wands- worth, in the course of which the shirts, & c. were identified by Mrs. Burford to have been part of the linen stolen from her house. Prisoners were both fully committed for trial at Ihe next Assizes to be held at Kingston; in and for the county of Surrey, and the parties bound over to prosecute. Serious Accidents.— On Sunday afternoon, about half- past four o'clock, a most melancholy and extraordinary occurrence took place, just without side the gate leading into and out of Hyde- park. General Barton, of the 2d regiment of Life Guards, seated on a remarkable tall bay charger, w as taking to a gentleman who was on foot, when Captain Bray, of the 57th foot, hap- pening to be coming on horseback from Hyde- park into town, just as he came through the gate the General's horse, with all the infuriated savageness of the lioness that some time since so suddenly pounced upon the leader of the Exeter mail, ran furiously at the Captain, seized hold of the inside of his thigh with his tremendous teeth, reared vehemently up, and tore away a large piece of the thigh, small clothes, drawers, and all, and dragged the Captain from his horse, lu the act of so sudden and vehement a rearing on end, the animal lost his poise, and fell back wards on his master, the general, by which he was unhorsed, but did not appear to have re- ceived serious injury. Captain Bray was imme- diately put into a hackney- coach, and conveyed to his abode, bleeding very freely. As Sir George Murray was riding in the Bois de Boulogne last week, in company with some English ladies, his horse fell, by which the General broke his leg in two places. It was thought that amputation must follow. The Manager of the Bath Theatre seems de- termined to go to the very gallows for novelty, as he last week restored the execution scene in the representation of George Barnwell, but the audience being in no humour to relish this shock- ing exhibition, fairly hissed the actors off the stage. Plymouth Dock, Feb. 1.— On Tuesday last, and bv adjournment on Wednesday, two Courts- martial were assembled on board the Superb, in Hamoaze, to inquire into the circumstances at- tending the loss of his Majesty's ships Jasper and Telegraph, in the hurricane on the night of Sunday, the 10th nil., anil to try their respective commanders/ officers, and ships' companies, for their conduct on that occasion. After a full investigation of all the circum- stances, the Court was of opinion, that the loss of his Majesty's ship Jasper was the consequence of proper precautions not having been taken in due time to prevent the shipwreck, by giving the ship more cable and striking her topmasts, and by lier having her lower yards aud top- gallant masts aloft, but that no blame was imputable to Captain Carew, or his surviving officers and company for their conduct upon the occasion of the loss of the said sloop : and they were there- fore all acquitted. Lieutenant Little and the officers and CTCW of the Telegraph were then tried, and acquitted. r LONDON, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 7,1817. Paris papers of Monday arrived on Thursday. The Moniteur is literally filled with the disgust- ing details of the exhumation of the bones ol the Royal Family of France, commencing with those of Dagobert the First, who was buried A. D. 538, and ending with tbe children of Louis XVI. buried in 1789. The Proces Verbal, or Minutes of this Mummery, at which all the great Officers of State were present, occupy six co- lumns, and the enumeration of the names fills up four more. An article from Madrid attempts to give a most favourable aspect to the operations of the Spanish Royalist Army in South America. The details are from Peru, and they bring down the occurrences in those regions to the beginning of May last. The whole statement exhibits the quintescence < of rhodomontade, and does no honour to the Spanish character. Col. Centeno, who relates the a flair, thus talks ofhimsclf:—" The wretched Camargo ( the opposite Chief) died by my hand. 1 did not cease to strike him with my sabre until his sword fell from his hands. 1 send it to you along with his head. Six hundred were killed. The Officers taken I intend to decapitate in the market- place of Cintri— the rest of the prioncrs shall be shot ! "— This is a war of extermination with a vengeance, aud will ruin tbe cause of Spain with her colonies, if it is persevered in. The French Papers contain a short dispatch from Governor Farquhar, announcing the late dreadful calamity at Port Louis, to the Governor of Gibraltar, with a view to obtain immediate supplies of corn from the Mediterranean. It appears, by an article from Turin, that the Spanish Patriots confined in the fortress of Ceuta, were lately on the point of being liberated by a coup de main, attempted by some of their friends. The effort was unsuccessful; and those who made it, have arrived at Cagliari iu Sardinia, on their way to some place of safety. An article from Cadiz, in the above papers, brings some heavy charges against certain indi- viduals, both in this country and in North Ame- rica; they are, it seems, the proprietors ofseveral of the piratical vessels now cruizing off the Streights of Gibraltar, and capturing all Spanish vessels. Private Letters from Paris of Monday have an account of the Sitting of the Chamber of Depu ties on that day. Two Projects of Law were presented, one relative to the responsibility of Members, the other relative to the Constitution of the Chamber of Peers as a Court of Peers. " Paris, Feb. 3.— A Letter from Bourdeaux gives an account of a sedition which had taken place in that town, and which was attended with fatal consequences. The people sought to oppose the embarkation of the corn destined for other departments. The opposition was so violent, that the military were called in and were obliged to fire upon them. A considerable number of persons were left dead on the spot, and a yet greater number were wounded." The Paris Papers express themselves in terms of deep indignation against the attempt upon the Prince Regent. The following is an extract from one of them:—" The attack upon the Prince Regent will not only excite the indignation of all Europeans attached to the cause of justice and legitimacy, and who knows of what importance to Europe is the safety of a Government whose noble efforts have in these later times saved all that remaiucd to us of civilization— but it gives rise to serious reflections upon that revolutionary spirit which could alone have inspired some wretches with the idea of so atrocious a crime The spirit that provoked the outrage against the Regent, is the same that in 1793 incited the assassination of Louis XVI.— that on the 18th Fructidor, oppressed the friends of true 1 berty that on the 18th Brumaire delivered up France to the power of a military chief— that in 1804 conjured up the bloody phantom of a false monarchy, of an usurping dynasty— that under all forms, aud in all languages, tends only to the Overthrow of legitimate governments, dynasties, and national institutions." The following is an extract of a letter from Calcutta, of recent date:— Recent letters from Almorah announce the agreeable intelligence, that Captain Webb, Surveyor in Kumaoon, has crossed the several ranges of the Snowy Mour- tains, and penetrated into part of Tartary. This intelligent Officer set off from Almorah sometime ago, attended by a Jemidar and 20 men of the Kumaooh Battalion, and surmounted very great obstacles in the accomplishment of his arduous undertaking. He had fallen in with a Tartar Chief, and hoped to be allowed to continue his researches.— We understand it to be his opinion, that he might, without great difficulty, penetrate from the situation whence he last wrote into the heart of Russia.— Every one will anxiously wish him success in an investigation promising curious scientific results. The supposed inaccessible height of these stupendous mountains, and ihe enormous ridges of snow skirting their sides, until lately debarred all attempts to surmount them in this direction. To Mr. Moorcroft, Superintendent of the Hon. Company's Stud, is, we believe, due the singular merit of having had the boldness to project, aud fortitude to complete, the task of this discovery. This enterprising traveller, some years ago, having entered by Sreenughur, and proceeded as far North as the great Lake of Mansoroar, returned in a South- easterly direc- tion, aud, cutting right across the great chain of the Himmalah, arrived in safety at Almorah, where he was taken prisoner by the Nepaulese Authorities. Mr. Fraser, brother to the First Assistant at the Delhi Residency, some time in the autumn of last year, also entered Thibet by the way of Sreenughur. As far as is known, these are the only persons who have ascended this great chain to the Northward : the rout of the Jesuits, and in later times, of Capt. Turner and Mr. Boggle, in their journies to the country of the Grand Lama, having been in all cases, if we mistake not, through the Moorum aud Bostan," IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT. HOUSE OF COMMONS, MONDAY, FEB. 3, 1817. The Speaker— I am to acquaint tiie House, that on Saturday last this House waited on his Royal Highness tli: Prince Regent with the Address ot' this House on Hie occasion of his Royal Highness's Speech from fife Throne, when his Royal Highness was pleased to make the following most gracious answer:— " I thank you for this loyal and dutiful Address. The cordial assurances which you give me of your loyalty and support are highly gratifying to my feelings, and cannot hut he attended with the lmppiest results at this important conjuncture." Mr. M. A. Taylor gave notice, that oil Wednesday fortnight he should move for leave to bring in a Bill for the better Paving the Streets of the Metropolis. . THANKS TO LORD EXMOUTH. Lord Castlereagh said, he rose in pursuance of the no- tice he had given to call the attention of the House to the subject of the late brilliant Victory obtained by his Majesty's arms at Algiers. It must certainly have been the hope and expectation of the House and the country, as itwasol himself, when it was so lately communicated that we had closed, with unrivalled glory, a long and arduous contest, that we might not be again engaged in hostilities with any power for a long series of years. He concluded with moving, " That the Thanks of this House be given to Lord Viscount Exmouth, Knight of Ihe Grand Cross, & c. S: c. for his able and gallant con- duct in the decisive attack on the. batteries and ports of Algiers, on the 27th of August, lHlti." Sir. Long, after a few observations, seconded the motion. Lord Cochrane, thought Lord Exmouth and his crew were deserving of all possible, praise that the House could bestow; and if he had differed on a former occa- sion from any V ote of Thanks, he must say, that on the present occasion it had his hearty Support; for he did not know that ever he had heard of ships being led in a mote gallant manner than they had been iu the expedi tion for which the House was about to pay its tribute. Mr. Money hoped that the Thanks of the House would be followed by some more permanent testimony to the merits of that distinguished man. The motion was then agreed to, as was one of Thanks to Sir David Milne, and the Admirals aud Captains un- der his command, and another stating," That this House does acknowledge and highly approve of the Services of the Seamen and Marines engaged in the Expedition." Thanks weie also voted to Vice Admiral Capellan, for his cordial assistance and co- operation on the occa- sion iu question. _ THIRD* SECRETARY OF STATE. Mr. Tierney gave notice, that on Thursday the 27th inst. he should make a motion for the abolition of the office of Third Secretary of State, the place being, in his judgment, a useless incumbrance. PARLIAMENTARY REFORM. Sir Francis Burdett presented a petition from the inhabitants of Sheffield, praying for a Reform in the Commons House of Parliament.— Ordered to lie on the table. Lord Radciffe presented a similar petition from Castle- Donnington, Leicestershire, which was ordered to lie on the table. Lord Errington presented a like petition from the inhabitants of Honiton, Devonshire.— Ordered lo lie on the table. PENSIONS. Sir Robert Heron moved, that an Humble Address be presented to the Prince Regent, praying that his Royal Highness would be graciously pleased to order that an Account should be laid before the House ot all Pensions granted in Great Britain or Ireland since the last return made to Parliament, with the dates thereof. This Motion was agreed to, and the Address was ordered to be presented by such Members as were of the Privy Council. COLONIES. Mr. Bennett moved for an Account of all Offices Civil and Military, held under the Crown iu Colonies, and other foreign parts, with the names of the parties who are the holders thereof.— Ordered. CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. On the motion of Mr. Robinson, the House went into Committee on the Cape uf Good Hope Trade Act. The Hon. Member then moved, that leave be given to bring in a Bill to amend the said Act, and that the House should resolve itself into a Committee to- morrow to consider the same, which was agreed to. SUPPLY. The Speaker having resumed the Chair, The Chan, of the Exchequer moved the Order of the House, that the House should go into a Committee, to consider of a supply to be granted to his Majesty. After a short altercation between Mr. Ponsonby and Lord Castlercagh, the Speaker left the Chair, when it was resolved, that the estimates of the current year should be laid before the House. The Chan, of the Exchequer then moved a resolution, that a supply should be gi anted to his Majesty. Some conversation arose between Mr. Calcraft, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and Lord Castleieagb. The House then resumed, when Mr. Croker presented certain papers relative to the salary of the Secretary of the Admiralty.— Ordered to be printed. Mr. Luskington presented an Account of the Net Produce of the Revenue for one year, from the 5th of January, 1B1G, to the 6th ofjanuary, 1817.— Adj. TUESDAY. I. ortl Apsley appeared at the Bar with her Majesty's answer to the Address of Congratulation upon the marriage of her Royal Highness the Princess Mary which was ordered to be brought up. MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCE REGENT. The order being read for taking into consideration the Message of his Royal H'ghness the Prince Regent on the State of the Countiy. The Message wa « accord- ingly read. Lord Castlereagh, after some prefatory remarks, moved," That an humble Address be presented to his Royal Highness Ihe Prince Regent, to return his Royal Highness the Thanks of the. House for his most gracious Message, aud to assure his Rojal Highness, that this House will proceed to take the information laid by his Royal Highness's command before Ibis House, into its immediate and most serious consi- deration." Mr. Ponsonby professed his unwillingness to make the slightest objection to the Address now proposed, lint begged to ask the Noble Lord what course his Majes- ty's Government meant to pursue in consequence of the Address. Lord Castlereagh spoke in so low a tone of voice that we could not distinctly collect what he said, but, as we understood him, he answered that, it was proposed to follow the precedent of 1795. The question 011 the Address was then put, and carried nem. con. Lord Castlereagh then moved, successively, 1. That the papers containing the communication from the Crown be referred toa Committee. 2. That the Com- mittee be secret. 3. That it consist ot 21 Members. 4. That it be chosen by ballot. 5. That the Members ofthe House prepare a list of 21, to put into a glass to compose the said Committee. (>. That the papers re- main on the table as they are, fill the said Committee be chosen. All which motions were agreed to. REFORM. The Sheriffs of London presented a Petition of the Lord Mayor, Aldermen, and Common Council, praying for Economy and for Reform in the Representation.— Ordered to lie 011 the table. Lord Cochrane said, he had a Petition to present from Scotland, and from the place of his nativity ; therefore no objection could be against it, founded on his want of knowledge of the petitioners : they were a set of men of regular and religious habits, and of strict industry; but they felt themselves imperiously called upon to state their various grievances. It was from Hamilton, in Lanarkshiie. He moved it should be brought up liicli was agreed to, and it was read, and ordered to lie on the table. \ Petition was received from Brandon, in the county of Cork, respecting the proportion of the taxation of Great Britain and Ireland, as fixed by the Act of Union. Lord W. Bentinck presented a petition from the Nobility, Gentry, Clergy, & c. of Nottinghamshire praying a revision ofthe poor laws. Ordered to lie on the table. Sir F. Burdett presented Petitions from the Inhaki tants of the Town of Leicester, and Leigh in Lanea shire, praying for reform in the Common*' Hons* of Parliament. Ordered to lie en the table. Mr. Brougham said lie held in his hand a petition from 1 number of the. inhabitants of . Warrington, in the County Palatine of Lancaster, complaining of a gross violation of the subject's best privilege— the right of petition. The case to which the Petition referred ap- peared to he one where a most serious obstruction was given to the right of petitioning. A petition had been urged by some hundreds ofthe inhabitants, praying for Retrenchment and Reform. Its language was guarded and camions— il broached 110 violent doctrines. Vet the Petition was forcibly seized in the. streets, as it was handing from house to house for signatures, by a man named Richard Burrowes; was given by him to Edw. Coates, and afterwards was forwarded to Mr. Thomas Lyon, the nephew of the acting Magisti ate, in whose house Mr. Lyon resided. Application was made for it by lettev stating tiie outrage, but the Petitioners were unable to recover it. A second Petition was then drawn out, but from an informality in the signatures it was un- fit to be presented. The subjects' right was thus ob- structed by the unjustifiable outrage. The petition lie held in his hand complained of that outrage, and he had therefore to move to have it brought up. On the Petition being read, Mr. Brougham said, at present he should merely move lliat ihe Petition do lie 011 the Table, in order to give every opportunity to the parties complained against of vindicating themselves and to put the House in possession of every fact. If this opportunity was not embraced he should feel it his duty to take some further measures. Some further observations ensued, after which the petition was ordered to lie on the table. Mr. Lushingtm obtained leave to bring in a Bill to amend the Actfor the Exportation of Naval Stores.— Adj. WEDNESDAY. The Speaker informed the House, that he had re- ceived a letter from Lord Exmouth, acknowledging the receipt ofthe Thanks of the House, which the Speaker accordingly read. The letter expressed the high grati fication of his Lordship atreceiving thoirThanks, which lie should communicate to the officers of the fleet, and who, he was certain, would, with himself, consider it. as the greatest reward they could receive for their humble services. Such a gratification would stimulate their ardour in all futureexertions which tJley might be called upon to make. His Loidship would also communicate the same to Admiral De Capellen, and the fleet ol our Allies. COMMITTEE OP SECRECY. Lord Castlereagh moved the Order of Ihe Day for pro- ceeding to ballot for the Committee of Secrecy, which was agreed to, and the ballot ordered to proceed. The Speaker then desired the Clerk to read over the names ot tile Members of the House in the order of their Counties: and desired such Members as had prepared lists of names for the Committee to deliver them at the table. The Clerk theu read over the names of the Members in the. order of their Counties, which occupied a consi- derable time. Many Members deposited their liits in the glass now oil thc'table. The Speaker desired the Clerk fo read over in the same order, the names of all those Members who had not Miswered to the first call: which the second Clerk accordingly did. The Speaker observed, that it would then be necessary to appoint a Committee to ascertain those Members on whom the choice ofthe House had fallen to compose the Committee. Mr. Brougham observed upon the loss of time in the present mode of proceeding iu the election of a Com- mittee of Secrecy. On the question that a Committee of Secrecy be ap- pointed to report to the House, Lord Castlereagh moved, that Mr. Arbnthnot, Mr. Freeniantle, Mr. Macdonald, and another Member, be appointed a Committee of Scrutiny, to ascertain the 21 Members 011 whom the election had fallen.— Ordered. The scrutineers then withdrew. POOR LAWS. Lord Morpeth presented a Petition from owners and occupiers of estates in the parish of Alsted, in the comity of Cumberland, respecting the state of the. Poor Laws. Mr. Cuncen said, he had been requested by those Petitioner to mention their complaints of peculiar hard- ships affecting them by the operation of the Poor Laws. He thought the House would not separate without some consideration of this important question, by which pro- perty in general might be equalized in its share towards supporting the poor rates, which at present many pa- rishes were unable to provide for. The Petition was read by the Cierk. It stated, that a great part of the population was thrown out of employment, and prayed for an amelioration of the Poor Laws.— Ordered to lie on the table. THANKS FOR THE VICTORY OF ALGIERS. Lord Castlereagh, adverting to an omission in the Vote of Thanks lo Lord Exmouth, and the Officers and 11 men under his command, in the conquest of Algiers, of 1 ' the royal artillery and engineers employed in the ser vice, moved,'' That they should be added to the list of those to whom the thanks of tbe House were voted. They, together with the sappers and miners, were ac. cordingly added. SPA- FIELDS PETITION. Lord Cochrane rose to present the Petition of the dis- tressed Inhabitants of the Metropolis and the vicinity, praying for Reform, agreed to at Spa- fields 011 the 2d of Dec. last. It was signed, he said, by 24,400 names. The Noble Lord moved that it be brought up and read, which it was accordingly, and ordered to lie on the table Lord Cochrane presented a Petition from Lee, in Lancashire, and from Horseforth, in Yorkshire; Lord J. Russell, one from the Borough of Tavistock ; and Mr. Harvey, one from the City of Norwich ; all pray- ing for Reform. SECRET COMMITTEE. Mr. Brogden appeared at the bar of the House with the Report of tlie Committee appointed to scrutinize the lists given in for composing the Committee of Se- crecy. The Report was read; and the names of the Committee were as follows :— Lord Milton, Right Hon. G. Ponsonby, Mr. Egerton, Right Hon. W. Elliott, Lord Castlereagh, Lord Las- celles, Right Hon. B. Bathurst, Hon. W. Lamb, Sir A. Pigott, Hon. Mr. Robinson, Right Hon. Sir J. Nicholl, Solicitor- General, Attorney- General, Right Hon. G. Canning, Right Hon. C, Yorke, Mr. Bootle Wilbraham, Mr. Wilberforce, Right Hon. W. Dundas, Right Hon. G. Rose, Sir W. Curtis, and Admiral Frank. There was a laugh at the conclusion of this list, it being the same as that anticipated by Mr. Brougham. This list was approved of, and the Committee re- ceived the necessary instruction. THE LOAN TO FRANCE. Mr. Hammersley moved for the oroductioa of accounts of all monies due to this country from France on account of prisoners of war, and all sums paid on this account during the last ten years. Seeing the Chancellor of the Exchequer in Ills place, the Hon. Gentleman asked him, if Government was a parfy to the French Loan at present negociating in this country. The Chancellor of the Exchequer had no objection to the production of the Accounts moved for, though it might cost some trouble to make them up. I11 answer to the question about the French Loan, he replied, Government was no party to it; and in a conversation between him, Mr. Tierney, and Mr. Ponsonby, which ensued he declared that Government had neither gua- ranteed, encouraged, or countenanced itin any manner whatever, but that heconceived 110 law existed against a foreign friendly Power negociating a Loan in this country. SAVINGS' BANKS. Mr. Rose moved for leave to bring in a Bill for re- gulating the provident institution of Savings' Banks Leave was given to bring in the Bill. COMMITTEE OF SUPPLY. Oil the motion ofthe Chancellor ofthe Exchequer, the House went into a Committee of Supply, when the Right Hon. Gentleman stated, that he had to propose a vote for a very large sum, in order to pay off four distinct classes of Bills, amounting in the whole to 28 millions, being 24 millions for England, and 4 millions for Ireland. The following sums were then severally proposed to the Committee, and voted to his Majesty :— £ 11,0( 10,000 for paying off Exchequer Bills issued for the service of Great Britain in 1SI6, and now out- standing and not provided for. 13,( 100,000 for like bills, issued in the same year, and remaining unprovided for. .£ 1,435,000 Irish - currency, for Treasury Bills in Ireland, now out- standing. I The House then resumed, and the Report was or- I dered to be received " to- morrow.— Adj. THURSDAY. Col. G. Langion presented a Petition from the Cloth workers of Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, and Somerset- shire, complaining ol' h - introduction of Machinery in making Cloth, by which many of them had been reduced to the greatest distress; and praying, that if'tlie House could afford them 110 other relief, it would at least so far alter the la\ vs, as to allow them to emigrate to a foreign land. He would not be discharging the duty of an honest representative bf the people if he did not » ay, that these petitioners were entitled to the attention of the House, and to have their petition referred to a Committee. He believed machinery to be necessary in order to enable the clothiers to meet foreign compe- tition ; but still, it might only be allowed to be used at certain times, and under certain restrictions, lie trusted that some Member, of more weight in the House, would press that this Petition be referred toa Committee. The Petition was then read, and ordered to lie on the table. Lord Cochrane, in presenting a Petition from Man Chester for Reform and Retrenchment, said, he had read the Petition, and could not say that it was so worded as to be pleasing to the House. The Petition was, however, read ; and the first line of it set forth that the House did not represent the People. Ltnd Castlercagh thonghtthe House had heard enough not to receive the Petition. Lord Cochrane trusted they would not reject the Pe- tition on reading the first line of it. The Petition was then read ; and Lord Cochrane moved that it should lie 011 the table. Lord Castlereagh opposed that motion, as the Peti- tioners had called the House an usurpation. Some further altercation ensued, and the House divided :— For rejecting the Petition, 50; for receiving it, 17— Majority against the Petition, 33. Mr. Grenfell in moving for papers respecting the Bank, said, Bank Stock had risen 10 per cent, since yesterday morning, and 15 per cent within a fortnight The consequence of this was, that it was rumoured in the City that the Bank was to advance to Government a slim for the service of the present year, and the bribe was to be the renewal of the Bank Charter 011 the present footing. For his own part, he had no belief in it. He then moved for Accounts ofthe ways in which the Bank Charter had been from time to time renewed. Mr. Vansittart had no objection to the production of the Papers. He had never heard of this unfounded rumour until he had seen it in Ihe public Prints. Mr. Manning also declared the rumour to be without foundation. The Papers were then ordered to be laid on the table ADDRESS OF THANKS TO THE MARQUIS OF HASTINGS. Mr. Canning- moved the Thanks of the House ' 0 the Marquis of Hastings, Governor General of India, and Ihe Officers and Men employed in the Nepaul War. Lord Morpeth hoped the result of this splendid achievement would he the complete pacification of India , and that every pains would be taken by our Government, to shew examples of good faith to the nations of India. Mr. Brougham said, that if this had not been a ques tion purely military, he should have had to ask for more information ; for he had understood, that the two highest Officers under the Governor- General had dif fered with the government in the policy of this war. He begged it to be understood, therefore, that he at present only agreed to this motion as oue purely military Mr. Lockhart rose to move for leave to bring in a Bill to prevent, as much as possible, that evil which was daily increasing, namely, Fraudulent Bankruptcies. He did not intend to propose any new Tribunals, or to lay additional burdens 011 the old. He intended 110 innovation , but to act 011 what had been already re- cognized by the Legislature. His object was to give the Commissioners power to examine how a Bankrupt had disposed of his property, previous to his bank- ruptcy ; and to remand him if it was found he. had dis- honestly squandered it away. He then obtained leave to bring in a Bill for the better Repression of Bank- ruptcy.— Adj. TO PREVENT FRAUD. " I^ HK Public are most earnestly requested, i when purchasing DAY and MARTIN'S Blacking, to observe that the Address is perfectly clear and cor-, eet, particularly the Number 97, as a sure means to prevent their being imposed upon by a spin ions and vile composition instead ofthe Original; the superior Qua.

Within these few days the rise in the Funds, and particularly in Bank Stock, has been so rapid, as to attract general notice, and give rise to various rumours. The high price which Bank Stock has attained was made the subject of an observation in the House of Commons on Thurs- day night by Mr. Grenfell, and the answer which he received from Ministers is calculated to refute one erroneous view at least, which has been taken ofthe eause of this advance. It has been re- ported, that the renewal of the Bank Charter, on terms still more advantageous than those on which it is now held, had been promised by Go- vernment, on condition of a loan being made to Government at a very low rate of interest, to enable Ministers to get through another Session without laying additional burthens on the Public. So far, therefore, as any secret compact or under- standing between the Bank and Ministers is con cerned in this case, we apprehend the explana- tions given in the House 011 Thursday night are satisfactory. Still, however the fact is undenia- ble, that the Funds have risen since the com- mencement of this week in an unprecedented manner. The rumours in circulation, as to the causes of the improvement in the Stock Market are various, and what is not always the case, they are of a cheering description. It is said, for instance, that an intimation bad been given by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, that be will have 110 occasion to apply to Ihe money market, the Bank of England having agreed to supply Government with what is wanted, at a low rate of interest. It is also said, that the general aspect of affairs, so far as the revival of com- merce is concerned, has a Ided to the confidence of the monied interest in the public funds ; and though last, not least, the disavowal of M inisters of all participation in the French loan, is men- tioned as an auxiliary cause of the prosperous appearances we have just noticed. The affair of the loan was discussed 011 Thurs day night, by way of question and answer, in the House of Peers. We have reason to suppose that arrangements are making for consolidating the customs of Eng- land and Ireland : the whole plan, it is consider- ed, will be completed by the time when the Budget is brought forward, when it will be laid before Parliament. An English calculator, says a German Paper, has estimated, that a Parliamentary Oratorspeaks 7,000 words, at an average, in an hour; and 7,500 words when warmed by zeal or hatred of the French I!

They consist of papers, lei. ters, & c. amounting in the whole collection to several hundred thousand. Wednesday night the Society of Arts chose a Secretary in the room of the late Dr. Taylor.

D. 1810,1 contracted the Complaint, and was under the VVrekin Doctor's hands two months, for which I paid two guineas; but getting worse, I left him, and went to another Doctor about one month ; but getting worse and worse, I went to Shrews- bury, to a medical man, two months : at one time he told me I was cured; and about four months after I broke out worse than ever.

FRIDAY, FEB. 7. In a Committee of Ways and Means, the renewal of the usual annual duties was voted, and also a grant of 21.000,00 » 1. for the payment of outstanding Exchequer Bills— Sir M. W. Ridley gave notice that he should, on the 8th of March, move for a reduction in the number of Admiralty Lords.— Mr. Calvert presented a petition for Reform from the Livery of London, w hich was read and Ordered to lie on the, table. Lord Castlereagh moved the reading, of that, part of the Prince Regent's Speech which wits particularly ad- dressed to the House of Commons, which was accord- ing! v tend by the Clerk. His Lordship then observed, thai the House had now, for the first time, to consider ftf what should be a proper permanent systejn for peace establishment. Reductions had been in progress from the termination of hostilities; since, which period no less than 300,000 soldiers and sailors had been dis- charged. It was now the time, tor Parliament to look to she scale upon which the peace expenditure should he formed. Previous to his moving for a Committee, he should take a general view of our fiuancial situation. The support of public credit, by making the nation live within its income, must be the grand object of all par- ties. England had never sought relief by a failure in tlic performance of its honourable engagements. It was proposed to make a reduction of 5000 men in the home military establishment, and of 13,000 in the colonial establishment. The troops in France were to be. reduced from 30 to 25,000, and the Indian army from 20 to 17,000. The total vote for last year was 150,000, for this year it would be 123,000 ; for the British, Irish and Colonial establishments, it was last year 99,000, this year it would be 81,116. The total charge for the army, militia, half- pav, & C. exclusive of the ordnance, was miniated for this year at 9,230,0001. being a diminution of 1,333,0001. as compared with the supply of 1816. fn the ordnance department there would be a saving of 450,0001- The pensions and half- pav of the army amounted to 2,554,0001. In the navy there would be a diminution of 14,000; the number for last year being 53,!! 00, and for this only 19,000. There would he no reduction in the marines. The chaise for the navy would not exceed 6,397,0001. being 3,717,0001. less than that oflast year. The grand total for the Army, Com taissariat, Extraordiuaries, Ordnance, Navy and Mis- cellaneous Services would amount to 18,373,0001. By next vear various savings might be effected to the amount of 1,073,0001. which would reduce the general dialge to 17,300,000. From this, instituting a compa- risonWith former peace establishments, there must be deducted the amount of half- pay, pensions,>& c. which then was very inconsiderable, but now had risen, front the long continuance of our naval and military exertion, to the sum of 4,345,000.; The expenditure in 1702 for Britain and Ireland was 0,200,0001.; making the deduc- tion just mentioned it would now be about 13,000,0001.

The Meeting was held this Morning at Spa- fields: but the Arrests which have taken place, and the precautions adopted by Government, caused every thing lo end peaceably, and the Town is perfectly quiet. Two days' Paris Papers, Wednesday's and Thursday's, were received on Monday. His Majesty is in very good health. The Budget is under discussion. The Americans are said, in letters from Algiers of the 8th, to have dictated a peace lo the Algerines. French funds, ( JOf. 10c. New York papers to the lS) th ult. and Boston papers to the 14th, arrived on Saturday. Their intelligence is very interesting. By a vessel which left St. Thomas's on the 25th of Decem- ber, accounts had been received of further suc- cesses on the part of the Patriots of the Spanish Main. They are said to have defeated the Roy- ilists in three different engagements, the last of which was at Unare ; and Generals Urdanets and Riccuete bad arrived at Calaposa with 3,000 men. The Spanish inhabitants had sent their property from Porto Cavello and Lignira to Cu- racoa. Commodore Brion, having under bis command one brig and two schooners, with Ge. neral Bolivar and his troops on board, sailed for Cumana about the 4th of December. It was ex pected that General Bolivar, on his arrival on the Main, would be appointed Commander- in- Chief of the Patriotic forces. The latest ac counts from Port- au- Prince, state, that the expedition which had sailed thcnce, under Gen. Mina, was destined to assist the Mexican Patriots. According to the latest accounts from Commo- dore Chauncey, the Dey of Algiers persisted in his refusal to ratify the treaty with the United States, in consequence of which preparations were making for blockading that place. The following Form of Prayer and Thanks- giving for the preservation of the Prince Regent was ordered lo be used at morning atfd evening service, after the General Thanksgiving on Sun- day, in all churches and chapels in London, and in all others ou the Sunday after they are received: " Almighty God — Merciful God, who, in compassion toa sinful nation, hast defeated the designs ofdespeiate men, and hast protected from the base and barbarous assaults ofalawlc9s multitude the Regent oftheUniled Kingdom, acccptour praise and thanksgiving: continue we implore thee, thy protection of his Koyal person. Shield him from the arrow that flietli by day, and from the pestilence that walketh in darkness ; from the secret designs of treason, and from the madness of the people. " And whilst we pray for tliy mercy and protection, give us grace, O God, to perceive and know what things we ought to, do ;" ia » t, impatient of present evils, and unmindful of thy manifold goodness, we seek relief where relief cannot be found, and abandon those never- failing sources of national prosperity and happiness- obedience to thy commandments, and the fear of thy holy name. " These prayers and praises we humbly offer to thy Divine Majesty, in the name and through the mediation of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen."

The Duty is not yet correctly ascertained. in the half- pay and pensions, which were now received by 100,000 men. Itwascalculated that the deaths would be about 2500 yearly, and the proportionate yearly re duction 100,000. Ministers were exceedingly anxious to make llie income and expenditure commensurate He. trusted that the estimates would meet the approba tlon of the House. Notwithstanding the severe distress which pressed on all classes, he saw no reason foralarm or despondency . If we looked to otlier countries we should, still find this comparatively happy. His Lord- sliip then panegyrized the efforts made by the rich to relieve the distresses of the lower orders, and an- nounced, amidst general cheering, that the Prince Re- gent would, for a time, give up for the public service 50,000i. a year, being about a fifth of the branch of the Civil List connected with the personal expences of the Sovereign, He could not make a permanent tender of this reduction without contracting a debt which would render iiis liberality of no advantage to the country, and might lead to a degradation of the Crown, by repeated calls upon his people to pay it. It was not, in this case, the saving, but the principle that, was important. The example would be followed by the servants Of the Crown, as to that part of the salaries which had accrued to them from the abolition of the property tax. The Noble Lord then came to the subject of the nomination of a Committee to investigate the state of the income and expenditure, lie saw no reason for departing from the old mode of ballot, notwithstanding Mr. Brougham's repetion of one of Mr. Sheridan's jokes. He would, however, propose them openly and fairly, from among independent country gentlemen, persons in office, and members on the opposition benches. The Noble Lord concluded with reading the following list:— Lord Castlereagh, Mr. Vansittart, Mr. Ponsonby, Mr. Bankes, Mr Long, Mr. Tierney, Lord Binning, Sir J. Newport, Mr. Peel, Mr. C. W. Wynn, Mr. Arbuthnot, Mr. Frankland Lewis, Mr. Huskinson, Mr. N. Calvert, Mr. Davies Gilbert, Mr. Cartwright, Mr. Holford, Mr. E. Littleton, Lord Clive, Mr. Gooch, and Sir T. Acland. Mr. Tierney reminded the House that the peace ex- penditure now proposed fell little short of his estimate last year, viz. 19/ 00,0001. The Noble Lord had for- gotten to state the income which was to meet this expen- diture. From the best estimate which he could make, there would lie, tinder all circumstances, a snm of three millions to be. made good; for that, at least, . would be tiie deficiency of the revenue to meet the demands upon it. lie was glad to hear that the Sinking Fund was to be spared. Nothing but evident and absolute danger, nothing but the prospect of peril, threatening flu very existence or the State, could induce him to consent to have recourse to that sacred fund. He espies- ed his satisfaction at the step taken by his Royal Highness, and only regretted that Ministers had not advised it iooner. He was also pleased at the intimation that the Servants of tlie Crown were to give up a part of their incomes. He hoped the Committee now nominated wonhl be an effective and operative one, and not as former Committees produce no practical result for months and years. Mr. Vansittart approved of the proposed Committee. He stated, that up to January tiie 1st, 1817, there had been a deficiency in the Con- solidated Fund of 600,0001. There were, however, from the property tax and some other sources 250,0001. On ihc average of the last year, from various circum- stances, a difference had been occasioned of 10 per cent.; but when the operation of the failure of the harvest on the revenue was considered, there appeared to him no just cause for apprehension or alarm. The debt had been reduced 20,000,000 of the stock last year. The unfunded debt had very little increased : but that of Ireland had increased 3,000,0001. The prospect of the revenue for this year was very favourable. In answer to questions from Mr, Grenfel and Mr. B. Shaw, Mr. V. expressed his hopes that a considerable part of the un- funded debt would be paid off in the present year, The interest of the unfunded debt was 1,000,0001.; the whole • was twenty- twg millions odd. Taking old naval stores, the lottery, and other branches, there would be eight millions odd applicable; to which add fourteen millions and there was atotal of 20 millions, exceedingthe sup- ply by about 1,400,0001. Not a single penny was to be taken from the Sinking Fund. A division took place, when Lord Castlereagh's motion was carried by 210 to 117. The Committee was tlieu completed, and in- vested with the usual powers Arrests by Order of the Secret Committee. The Committees of the House of Commons and the House of Lords, to whom the bags of political papers have been referred for their investigation, sit very closely : they even sat on Suuday. On Saturday they made such discoveries as to induce Ministers to determine on the apprehension of a number of persons on charges of poli- tical offences; and Pearkes, Lavender, Taunton, Atkins, Bishop, and Vicary, the Bow- street, officers. Perry the constable, and a number of others, were to bold them- selves iu readiness. It was very prudently determined to apprehend them all at the same time, in order to avoid a'a> m. On Saturday night the officers weie allmustered, and departed under the direction of Mr. Stafford, the chief clerk belonging to the office, Mr. Brown, and Mr. Ures, the King's Messengers : they went iu pursuit of all the persons charged ; but not being able to find thqm all at home, after waiting till a late hour, they gave up their pursuit. The principal man wanting was Dr. Watson, and be being said to be living with Preston, in an obscure com t in the neighbourhood of Gough- square, Lavender, and another officer, were observed waiting on the outside of the house; and some friend of Preston's went and informed him of the circumstance, but Preston treated it with his usual boldness of con- tempt, saying he did not care if there were 00 consta- bles, for he should be then better protected. Sunday morning by seven o'clock the messengers and officers resumed their exertions to apprehend the men against whom they had warrants. They gained admit- tance before eight O'clock into the house where Preston lodges, and found him and Dr. Watson in bed together, in the most abject and deplorable state of poverty, having very little more than u ragged quilt to cover them: they were very reluctant to get up, and Dr. Watson demanded by what authority they were taken, denying any power except it was authorised by llie Lord Mayor, as he was then ill the city of London, and at the same time regretted that he had gone to lodge with Preston, which was the cause of his being brought a second time into trouble. The King's Messenger who headed this party showed him his badge, with the royal arms, denoting his office, and a warrant from Viscount Sidmouth, his Majesty's principal Secretary of State, for the home department. The Doctor and Preston then being satisfied as to the authority, surrendered very quietly, and were conveyed to Bow- street office. Mr. Evans and his son, brace- makers in Newcastle- street, in the Strand, were apprehended by another party about the same time ; they also made considerable objections as to the authority but were at length satisfied. Mrs. Evans observed, it was only what she expected. We understand this woman and iter husband were taken into custody 20 years ago by Mr. Shaw, the King's Messenger, on a charge of political offences-. the son was then only one year and a half old. He is described to be a young man of some abilities, and was to have been the principal orator yesterday in Spafields. There wore, also, brought to the. office, who were apprehended about the same time, two men, whose names we under- stood to be Keene, or Kearns, from a court in Old Cavendish- street; and a man of the name of Castles from Carnaby- market. All their papers were seized and sealed up, and in other respects properly secured They were all refreshed with breakfast, iVc. It being known at the Secretary of State's Office, meeting of the Cabinet Ministers was immediately summoned, and they met at one o'clock for the Home Department. The Attorney and Solicitor- General, Sii Nathaniel Conant, Mr. Litchfield, the Solicitor to the Treasury, together with the under Secretaries of State, were in attendance. The Lord Mayor attended at the office at half- past 3 o'clock. The prisoners were examined separately. Preston was examined first. They were both kept in separate rooms, with officers to take care of them. The Cabinet Ministers present were, the Lord Chan- To the Editor of the MAIDSTOnE JOURNAL. SIR, IN your Paper of Tuesday last, I was astonished to observe, that my name was made use of, as Bookseller toa work entitled " the Life and Manners of the Baroness Koningsmark," by S. F. Waddington," which lias been inserted entirely without my knowledge, or even the least consultation with me. by the Author; yon will, therefore, Sir, oblige me, by making this as public as possible, in your next Tuesday's paper, for I would not have had my name published as Bookseller to such work on any account whatever. I am, Sir, Yours, & c. Tanbridge, Feb. 8, lBlT. T. DAKENS. The most important public business of the past week is the appointment of a Select Committee of twenty- one, by the House of Commons, to examine into, and report upon, the state of our revenue and expenditure for she years ending on the 5th Jan; 1815, 1816, 1817 ; and to consider, also, such fotimates as may be laid before them, respecting the probabilities of the years 1818 and 1819. Lord Castlereagh, as may be seen in our report of what was important in the debate, estimates the savings in the expenditure of the present year, com- pared with that of the amount last year, at no less a sum than ,£ 0,501,000. This diminution has been effected by great practicable reductions in all the chief branches of the public service. In addition to this, the Prince Regent, sympathizing with the existing distresses of the country, contributes to the public, for the present year, the splendid sacrifice of ,£."> 0,000, from that divi- sion of the Civil list which is applicable, directly, to the maintenance of the royal dignity. This example of the munificence of his Royal Highness is to be imi- tated, to a certain extent, by the chief servants of the Crown, who arc also; for the present war, to deduct as much from the emoluments of their offices as they paid to the Property Tax. The formation of the Committee was opposed by Mr. Tierney and others, who wished for. different committees to enquire minutely into the different heads- of the public income anil expenditure ; as the wide field of investigation opened to a single committee might probably delay the receiving of any adequate report beyond a convenient time oftlieSes- siou. Objections were also taken to the appointment of any holder of office on the Committee of Enquiry. Mr. Tieruey't view of She Speedy revival of onr finan- cial resources was unpromising ; bill the Chancellor o! the Exchequer entertained very considerable hopes ot a beneficial alteration at no distant period. Mr. Pen. sonby said lie was ready to make a greater deduction MEETING AT M. ACKHUATH. At one o'clock on Saturday a numerous and l. ighh respectable Meeting of the Inhabitants of Blackhead) ami the surrounding neighbourhood was held at the Great Room of the Green Man Tavern, Blackheath, for the purpose of preparing a Declamatory Resolution on the subject Of the tate outrageous attack upon his Royal Hnrhness the Prince Regent, while returning from the House of Lords on the first day of the present Session ; when R. BOUDLER, ESQ. being called to the Chair, opened the business of the day by calling upon Mr, BicKNELI,, the de- puted lo act as Secretary, 10 read the Adver- tisement through the medium of which the Meeting was convened. After this form had been complied with, Mr. FOSTER rose to call the attention of the Meeting to the subject which it was assembled to discuss. The present was a period of deep and momentous interest to the country, and one which, if not attended to with serious concern, would produce the most fatal and mis- chievous consequences. Strange notions had gone abroad in some parts of the country, and furious and designing demagogues had been taken advantage of the prevailing distress, to disseminate among the people atrocious and abominable doctrines in ihe seductive shapes of constitutional principles, but which had no other tendency or object than the subversion of all social order, and the overthrow of that unrivalled con- stitution under whose protecting auspisces this country had forages flourished. ( Applause.) To hear such doctrines disseminated, the idle and the dissolute had for the last six weeks, been invited in public places throughout the kingdom, and oi: such occasions that inflammatory spirit was kindled and extended, which at length ( and as a natural consequence) broke out in ( lie open and desperate violence of riot and treason, and directed its attack against the representative of the Sovereign of the country, while in the very act of exercising one of the highest constitutional functions of the Crown. This attack as daring as it was traiterous and desperate, was happily unsuccessful ; but its undis- guised manifestation called for, and imperiously de- manded, the open avowal of the opinions of his Majes- ty's loyal and faithful subjects. They should rally round the Throne at such a crisis, and pledge their lives and fortunes to stand or fall with the constitution • under which this country had So long prospered. ( Ap- plause.) liy adopting this course throughout tiie king- dom, they would be not only tendering their firm sup port to the lawful authority of Government, but also shewing the miserable and contemptible number and character of the abettors of anarchy ; they would be separating the chaff from the corn ; and while exhi- biting the weight of the one, at the same time exposing the levity of the other. ( Applause.) Mr. Foster then proceeded to draw a comparison between the present temper of the times and tiiat which, from similar causes COURT OF KING'S BENCH, Wood v. the Mayor and Corporation aj Sandwich.

Tlie abundance and cheapness of the Herrings lately- caught off the Isle of Wight, have enabled the Deal Society of Fishermen's Friends to make a promising close of the Herring Season, as their vessels have fol- lowed the fish to the Westward, with every means of curing them on board, superintended by an experienced Dutch Skipper. It is sincerely hoped, that the Society will, by an increase of subscriptions and support, be able to furnish employment to the numerous hands now destitute on our coast. BIRTHS. Feb.

What this committee w ill recom- mend respecting the abolishing- of unnecessary offices, and the abolition or modification of sinecure places, re- mains yet to be seen. We feel enabled to state correctly, that all the money, or nearly all, which Government will want for the Ways and Means of the country for the service of the pre- sent year will be raised by means of Exchequer Bills, bearing a low interest, and we believe we are equally correct in stating that they will be taken by the Bank of England. ": The recent atrocious and detestable attack on the Prince. Regent, on his return from opening the Session of Parliament, lias justly', excited the indignation of the public, and accordingly meetings have been held, or are called for, in various parts of the country. But it is a great gratification to all loyal subjects, and friends of our constitutional liberties, that nothing has yet transpired, tending to evince the existence of any plot for the perpetration of atrocious and traitorous pro- ceedings against ihe person of his Royal Highness. The unpardonable. outrage appears to have been com- mitted by some low, misguided, stupid, or disaffected wretches, unconnected with any band of conspirators. upon the rational and, intelligent part of the pub! express its abhorrence at so daring an outrage. Some persons were of opinion that the subject only suited the gravity of Corporative Bodies ; that it was too im- portant for hasty and undigested consideration. He confessed that lie was quite of a different opinion, being fully convinced that nothing would sooner drive tiie agitators into merited contempt and obscurity than the expression, both individually and collectively, of persons of weight and character all over the country. ( Applause.) He concluded with proposing, for, the adoption of the Meeting, a Declaration, expressive of its abhorrence of the late attack upon the Prince Re- gent, and a Resolution, pledging the Gentlemen pie- sent to support, with all their strength and influence, the lawful authority of Government. Mr. WILLIAMS concurred in every sentiment that had been delivered by the worthy Mover of the Decla- ration and Resolution, which he begged to have the honour of seconding. The Declaration and Resolution were embodied in one motion, and carried unanimously. Dover Soup Society.— It may be gratifying to many of our readers to learn the progress of an institution which has been found to be a most effectual and satisfactory means of relieving the necessitous poor of that populous town, and is worthy of imitation at other places. This Society deliver weekly 2400 quarts of most excellent meat soup at one penny per quart; regulations are es- tablished on a plan similar to the Spitalfields Institution , a square iron boiler is erected in a central situation, in which 150 gallons are prepared tour times a week; the poor receive tickets from the subscribers in proportion to the sum subscribed; and the whole is so systemati- cally arranged , that from 400 ta 500 persons are supplied within the space of one hour. Much credit is due to the gentlemen who have kindly undertaken the super- intendance, amongst whom we must particularize the worthy Treasurer Admiral Bazely, whose unremitting attention has very materially assisted in establishing regularity and order, w hich is too frequently wanted in the distribution of public bounty. About ,£ 300 has been subscribed, by which the society will be enabled to continue the supply for two or three months yet to come ; and in the course of one month upwards of 15,000 pints have been prepared and delivered tothepoor, whose eagerness to obtain tickets, and expressions ot gratitude on the receipt of the soup, affords high satisfaction to those who have thus contri- buted to relieve the distress of their fellow creatures. The Earl of Liverpool, with bis usual beneficence, has presented the Society with ten pounds, without requir- ing any otlier return, than that the prisoners confined in Dover Castle should partake of the soup, which tliey accordingly do.

Hi, 1817. We have been well supplied with Wheat, both foreign and English, since this day se'nnight, anil there was i good arrival tins morning from F. ssex and Kent; hut the quality being generally rough and inferior, it meets a heavy sale and may be quoted full 2s. per qnarter iower; fine old Wheats, however, are, readily taken off at last week's prices— For Black Rarlejs, though quoted lower, there is scarce any denir n l; we do not observe any alteration in the finer qualities. — Hog Pease and Boilers are unsaleable, unless on very reduced terms ; and Tick Beans have declined 2. to as. per quarter.— The Oat trade is very heavy, at a decline ot about 2s.— Flour continues at five guineas per sack.

At seven o'clock the pri- soners were conveyed in coaches to different places ot confinement, guarded inside and out by police officers. On Sunday, the 28th nit. was preached ( as a farewell Sermon) at the Parish Church of Lamberhurst, Kent, by the Rev Frederick Gildart, after a residence at that place of more than 18 years, and ill which he was highly respected both in his Ministerial and private capacity, a very impressive discourse and exhortation taken from the 4th Chapter of the 1st Book of Thessa- lonians, the latter part of the 2Sth verse—" And I pray God youi whole spirit, and soul, and body, he pre- served blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ," which discourse made such an impression on a numerous congregation as is hoped will not be easily eradicated. It is in contemplation of the Inhabitants to request the Rev. Gentleman to print the above discourse and exportation, for the benefit of the Sunday School of that place, to which he and bis lady were very great promoters. On Wednesday last, Mr. James Buckland, late Master of the Grammar School at Tenterden, was, after jin examination highly, creditable to himself, as a classical scholar and mathematician, elected by the Worshipful Company of Clothworkers to the Master- ship of the Grammar School at Sutton Valence in this county.

AUDACIOUS BURGLARY, UNION- HAM,.— John White and John Heyward, were on Saturday brought up by May and Goff, apprehended by them upon a charge of felony under the following aggravated circumstances:— Sophia Brown, wife of John Brown, a toil- collector, nt Greenwich, stated, that on the 15tli of Jan. last, between 6 and 7 ill the evening, she was at home alone, when she heard somebody knock al the door; she asked who was there, when a voice like that of a child, said," only me ma'am," Witness opened the door, when a man rushed upon her and seized her by the throat, she also observed another man standing near the door with his handkerchief up to his face; in the other hand he had a dirk or knife, which was very bright, and apparently sharp. The man who seized her by the throat she believed was the prisoner White; he presented a pistol at her head, and threatened if she spoke a word, to blow her brains out. He demanded money; and on the witness saving she had none, he used the most dreadful imprecations, and desired she. would shew him where her husband's boxes were. She conducted him up stairs ;, he continued to point the pistol at her, and made her hold the candle whilst he was about to break open her boxes, hot to prevent thra she gave him her keys. He then opened the boxes and took out their contents, wearing apparel, which he brought down stairs ; the other man, who she believed by his voice was Heyward, continuing all the time as a guard at the door. White took a shawl, which was hanging on a chair, to put the things in, but on her beg- ging him not to deprive her of that, as it was the only coveting she had to keep her warm, he returned it to her, but pulled of} her apron, saying that would do for his wife. He tied up the things taken out of the box in the apron, and threatening, if she made any alarm for half an hour, they would come back and murder her. They went away, locking the door after them, and leav- ing the key on the outside. After they weie gone sh alarmed her next door neighbour by knocking against the wainscot, and they came and let her out. The pri- soner Heyward was an acquaintance of her husband's and had been for years, and she could swear to his voice The prisoners both solemnly declared they had no knowledge whatever of the transaction, and that Mrs Brown was mistaken. She, however, persisted in the charge, and they were committed for re- examination. NEWGATE a fid LEADENHALL MARKETS. By the Carcase. Beef 2s 8d to 3 Mutton 3s Od to 4 PRICE OF LEATHER.
