April 22; W. Nettleford, Dartford, butcher, at 10. —— LONDON, -. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 2, 1817. The Paris Journals of Sunday last arrived on Wednesday morning. They announce, lhat ihe Count de Croquembourg, formerly a Captain in the French service, had been arrested on the preceding day, and carried before the Prefecture of Police. His papers had been seized. M. Armaud de Briqueville had also been arrested. Both are accused of carrying on an improper • Correspondence with the exiled traitors in Bel- gium, whom neither the royal clemency, nor the love the French bear to their King and his au- gust family, nor that which they owe to the hospitality Which has received them iu an allied country, can recal to their duty and to the feel- ings of Frenchmen. It is said the King and the Royal Family will about the middle of this month go to Versailles, where they will chiefly reside during the summer Season. The Duchess of Berry is to be confined there. t The Duke of Tarente was, yesterday, to re- place the Duke of Belluno, as Major- General of the Royal Guard. The French Funds are still higher, ( 51i; the Loan Contractors, therefore, yet appear to be doing well. They took theui at 55, with a divi- dend of 2'$ just due, which is not reckoned in the former price. So much do Baring, Hope, Bethmann, and Parish exceed the Great Nation, as—" a '"'"'" uidiiy of eood names." Tuesday a Mail arrived from Jamaica. The Western Ocean swarms with armed vessels, which intercept and plunder the ships of all nations indiscriminately. They call themselves " Inde- pendents:" their conduct is that of Pirates, and we hope their career will be stopped precisely in the way in which in times past the seas were cleared of their predecessors. The crews of these vessels are not even na- tives of South America; and if they were, it would be our duty to chastise their insolence with the utmost rigour. With respect to the affair of the Independents, on the main land, the Jamaica Papers do not entitle us to say, that they are going on prosperously. The writers of the Jamaica accounts are Spanish Royalists, however, and their statements may be exagge- rated. If the Independents are to support their cause by piracy and plunder, they had better give it up. Their struggle will otherwise ac- quire the character which was very justly ap plicable to the French Revolution during the era of Robespierre. Letters have been received at Brussels, from Cadiz direct, stating, that one of the galleons front South America, with a rich cargo, was taken, after a desperate battle, off the Canaries, by two Iudependant privateers. Great fears were entertained for the other galleons. By an arrival at Liverpool, we have accounts from Pernambuco, of the titli February, which state, that a most uncommon drought had been experienced iu the tropical regions of the Brazils, or that part of the country ranging between Pernamouco and Rio Janeiro. By this circum- stance, all the streams had been dried up, the cattle were dying or dead, and all the popula- tion emigrating to the borders of the great rivers In search of water. The greatest distress pre- vailed, provisions were wanting, and the mills completely at a stand. They have no wind- mills, so that no corn could be ground. Vessels had been sent from Pernambuco to the United States to fetch flour, and what had tended to in- crease this distress was, the interruption of the coasting trade through the dread of war with Buenos Ayres. The Icarus, of 10 guns, Capt. Devon, arrived on Saturday at Portsmouth, from the East Indies. She left the Mauritius on the 10th November, having just previously been to Bengal, for specie, and to Madras and Trincomalee for mails, all which she has brought safely to England. On tier way from the Mauritius, she conveyed a force to Tamatave, in the island of Madagascar, consisting of Capt. Le Sage ( who is called a Go- vernment Agent), a Surgeon, a Secretary, and about twenty artillery- men. They are to he sta- tioned at Ova, about 300 miles from Tamatave, • fuul it it is hoped and expected, that their pre- sence will operate to effect an abolition of Slave- trailing in that quarter. This abominable traffic is at present carried on by the Malays, who procure Slaves, some by purchase and more by violence, from the eastern coast of Africa, and make Madagascar their depot, whence they » : e clandestinely conveyed to the Isles Rode- rique, Bourbon, the Mauritius, & c. The Icarus left the Magicienne, Iphigenia, Conway, and Bacchus, at Trincomalee; the Minden, Falmouth, and Julia, at the Cape: and the Newcastle ( Sir Pulteney Malcolm), Spey, and Leveret, at St. Helena. Buonaparte con- tinued to live in the same secluded manner he } iad done for some time: be hud not gone beyond the boundary of his garden since Las Cases left hi nr. The Iacrus departed from the Island on the 28th Jan. and Ascension on 12th Feb. She has returned home to be paid off. being tin the War Establishment, and is come into Harbour for that purpose. She left Calcutta on the 13th, and Madras on the 28th Sept. The Mosquito, has captured three vessels ; two under English, and the third under French colours, which were engaged in the Slave Trade between the Mau- ritius and Madagascar— they, were laden with the unhappy objects of their detestable traffic. HAMBURGH MAIL. Letter from Stockholm, March It.— An inhabitant of this city has brought against persons, whose names are not yet known, .- allegations of so serious a nature, that they have excited the attention of the Government. It has therefore ordered a strict examination to be made, in order to get at the bottom of the affairs, and bring down the vengeance of the laws upon the guilty, whe- ther it be the informer or the accused. News having been received of some disorders at Wisbv, in the Island of Gothland, which were occa- sioned by illegal toasts that were drank there on the celebration of his Majesty's Birth- day, Baron Ceder- stroem, the newly appointed Governor of the Island, has hastened his departure for his destination. Stutgardt, March 13.— Nothing is yet decided re- specting the acceptance or non- acceptance of the plan of a Constitution laid by the King before the States. The only subject ofthe deliberations hitherto, has been the form's of the future debates on the plan. Consider- ing the great interest which the public takes in the affair of the ( onstitution, it is expected the public sit- tings, which will soon commence, will be very nume ronsly attended. At the beginning of April the King wil! remove to his summer residence at Carmstadt. The building formerly the Menagerie, is to be con- verted in future into a Veterinary School. The King has allotted several of the beasts, wolves, monkeys, and camels, in the Menagerie for experiments on the effects of various kinds of poisons. Several of our Naturalists and Medical Men were particularly asto- nished at the effects of the ( Blausaeure,) a few grains of which sprinkled in the nostrils or mouths of these animals caused their death in a few seconds. Munster, March 20. — A Ministerial Rescript, publish- ed here, orders speedy measures to be token to make the river Lippe navigable as far as Luenen, for the union of it with the Munster Canal, for the union of this Canal from Maxhafen with the Ems at Rheine, and for the repairing of the roads from Wesel, Dortmund, and Hamm, to Minister, and thence to Rheine, in order to facilitate the conveyance of goods by land when the navigation is impeded. From Rheine, the Hanoverian Government will continue the road to Leer. From all this it appears that our Government has the intention of promoting the communication with the sea by way of East Friesland, which the late Custom- house regu- lations ofthe Kingdom of the Netherlands render very necessary. Hanover, March 20.— The day before yesterday, in the forenoon, several Officers now here went through the principal streets in masquerade on horseback. The bills distributed in the streets on the occasion contained, as title of this munnnery: " The Gods of the World ; or, Folly thou art triumphant." The group of masks consisted chiefly of Aballino, Don Quixotte, Sancho Panza, Valtaire, the Maid of Orleans, Knights in Ar- mour, a Tailor, a Barber, ike. The orchestra followed in a waggon. Berlin, March 22.— The whole Court is going to- day to Potsdam, wheie, at the beginning of next week, the Duke of Anhalt Bernburg will arrive with the Princess, his daughter, the bride of Prince Henry of Prussia.- The marriage contract will then be signed. By a Cabinet Order respecting magnetism, it is or- dered, that in order to prevent abuses, as far as pos- sible, only authorized physicians shall be allowed to attempt cures by magnetism. Those physicians, who employ this means, are bound to deliver fo their supe- rior Authorities, every three months, an exact account of the disorders they have treated, and of the facts which tliev have observed. Dr. Beresford in this city has received the title of Professor of the English Language and Literature. St. Petersburgh, March fi.— The amount of goods im- ported into St. Petersbnrgh last year was above 00 millions of roubles, and that of goods exported nearly 77 millions and a half. The ship Rurik, commanded by Lieutenant Von Kotzebue, which was fitted out two years ago, by Count Romanzow, for a voyage of nautical and geographical discovery, happily arrived in June 1810, in the harbour of Petro Paulossk ( St. Peter and St. Paul), and sailed in July to Behring's Straits. This account has just been received from Kamtschatka. A new Imperial Decree has been issued respecting travelling from and to Russia, the object of which is, to extend the communication of the subjects with fo- reign countries. On the Otli of February, during a violent storm and hail shower, the lightning fell on the steeple of Wam- lingbo, in the island of Gothland, in the Baltic, which was burnt. The bell, which fell down, was melted by the heat. From the Maine, March 20.— In several German States there are continued complaints of the illegal opening of letters. It is said that this subject, so important to every body, will shortly form a subject of serious dis- cussion in the Diet, A letter from St. Petersburgh, dated Fe- bruary 27, says—" The bears, which the French Papers stated to have besieged Moscow, have really appeared in much larger number than usual: not, indeed, about Moscow, but between Irkutsk and Nerlschinik, in Siberia, 12 or 1500 leagues from the capital of Russia. They penetrated with fury into the hamlets and re- mote habitations, the inhabitants of which had for a time much difficulty in repelling their attacks. About Werchne Oudensk, there were near 400 of these ferocious animals. The extra- ordinary trade in corn has latterly doubled tlit number of strangers at Odessa. This seaport seems in a fair way of becoming one of tile most considerable towns of the Russian Empire; its increase proceeds in a manner beyond all con- ception." Extraordinary Phenomena.— To the number of phenomena which have distinguished the present season in all parts of Europe, several new and extraordinary particulars are constantly adding. On the 2d of February there was re- marked, at Odensee, iu Denmark, in the south- west, a sort of a shower of fire, which fell with great rapidity, and seemed to increase in pro- portion as it approached near to the earth. On the Oth, a storm of rain, hail, and thunder, burst suddenly over Rome ; the lightning struck on the chateau of St. Auge, and much damage was done. At Alcoeer, in Spain, on the 20th ( the weather being rainy), at three o'clock in the afternoon, there was lightning, followed with thunder; about half- past six there arose all of a sudden a most tempestuous wind ; torrents of rain and bail stones fell; the whole heavens became illu- minated with lightning, with the exception of a black cloud, which increased by little and little to a great bulk ; at seven a detonation was heard of such appalling loudness, that the people in the streets fell in terror on the ground, and a suffocating smell of sulphur ensued ; a second detonation, not so loud, followed, and the black cloud then bursting open, an immense globe of fire issued from it, aud descending rapidly on a Convent of Franciscans, destroyed the iron cross which surmounted it, set fire to the timber work, and dividing itself into two volumes of flame, enveloped the whole of one side of the Church, and making an opening of more than six feet in the wails, burst into the interior. This extraordinary explosion was succeeded by a thick shower of bail, soon after which the atiuosphere became quite tranquillized and se- rene ; and the inhabitants, recovering from their surprise, exerted themselves to extinguish the fire in the Convent, in which, however, ihey did not succeed till the greater part of it, was damaged or destroyed. ROYAL HUMANE SOCIETY. On Wednesday the Anniversary of the Royal Humane Society, for the recovery ofthe appa- rently drowned, or dead, instituted in the year 1774, since which time upwards of 4000 have been restored through the means prescribed by the Society, was held. At three o'clock a Sermon was preached at Salters Hall. The festival was held at tiie City of London Tavern. At six o'clock about 300 persons SAt down to dinner, his Royal Highness the Duke of Sussex in the Chair. A procession of the restored persons, about 47 in number, entered, and were conducted by the Stewards round the room, the band playing solemn music: after which honorary medals were presented To Madame and Miss Cimbaloni, for the restoration of two Children of Mr. Carr's, of the Theatre Royal, Drury- lane. To George Pring, esq. for the restoration of Thomas Clay. To Major Rochfort, H. B. M. Consul at Ostend for his successful exertions to save the lives and property of 30 English Passengers, on board the Britannia Packet, which was wrecked on the 2d of September, 1816, near the Harbour at Ostend ; and for the re- storation of Tornetto Morina at Toulouse, and Cor- poral Armstrong, at Portsmouth. To Charles Lush, Esq. for the restoration of John Martin. To Dr Douglass, for the restoration of P. Marshall. To Lieut. Claxton, for saving the lives of 3 seamen. To Capt. Willock, for saving the lives of Mr. Prime, Miss Armstrong, Miss Mybsca, Mr. and Miss Wilson, Officers' Wives and Children, of the 4th Royal Veteran Battalion, wrecked in the Harpooner, on the coast of Newfoundland, Nov. 10, 1816. Before and after the procession the Duke of Sussex rose and expressed his satisfaction at witnessing so numerous an assemblage of persons to render their support to so amiable and benevolent a society, and stated many ex- traordinary cases of persons saved from a pre- mature death. Several toasts and songs followed, and the company did not break up until a late hour. Further Particulars of the Action with the Smuggler in Robin Hood's Bay. YARMOUTH, MARCH 27.— The Ranger cut- ter, Captain Savers, having on board 14 guns, with a complement of 20 men and 3 boys, fell in with, on Wednesday, the 19th inst. at about nine o'clock in the evening, a large lugger of 12 nine- pounders, with- J) muskets, and 30 men, having on board a cargo of contraband goods ; on the lugger being iired at to bring to, she re- turned the fire, when an action commenced, which lasted for an hour and a half; the loss of the Ranger has been severe, 3 killed and 7 wounded ; the loss on the part of the smugglers cannot be ascertained, as they quitted their vessel; but from the nature of the fire, they must have suffered considerably. Capt. Sayers succeeded in capturing the vessel and her cargo, notwithstanding the unequal contest, and in se- curing two men and a boy ; and it is to be hoped they will he the means of bringing to justice a set of desperate and depraved men, who have now added the crime of murder to other acts of illegal tendency. This was her sixth trip, and she had on board 507 ankers, 945 half ditto of spirits, 20f> bags of teas, 47 bales of silk hand- kerchiefs, 27 bales of tobacco, 9 boxes of cards, besides cordials; the whole is computed at up- wards of £ 9,000. Government have offered £ 500 for the apprehension of any of her crew, to be paid on conviction. On Sunday afternoon the bodies of the above men were conveyed from the Wrestler's Inn to the place of interment, pre- ceded by the beadles of the parish, a party of their messmates two and two, the collector and comptroller of the customs, Capt. Sayers, Lieut. Claxton, aud several gentlemen; each of the bodies were carried by the crew of the Tartar revenue cutter, and during the ceremony minute guns were fired from that vessel, and a flag placed half- mast high on the steeple. Thus every possible respect was shewn to the valour of these brave but uufortunate men. MANCHESTER PLOTS. The Manchester Papers, received on Wed- nesday morning, inform us, that tranquillity was xmce more restored ill that town. The Exchange Herald of April 1, contains the following account of a disgraceful outrage committed early on Monday morning, with the evident intention of assassinating a very worthy inhabitant of Salford, w ho had been particularly active in restoring the peace :•" About two o'clock yesterday morning a gun or pistol was fired by some villain, into the bed- chamber in which the daughters of Mr. H. Burgess, of Springfield, Salford, sleep. The slugs or balls broke several panes in the window, but, providentially, neither of the young Ladies sustained any injury. Mr. Burgess immediately got up, and joined his watchman, who had been pursuing a man he found on the premises, immediately after the report was heard, but unfortunately he escaped. He is described as having been well dressed: to have worn a black or dark coloured coat, light coloured breeches, and boots with light coloured tops. He appeared to know the premises perfectly, for he escaped through one ofthe dye houses by the side of the river, and from thence through Battye's Croft, through which he made his escape.— We hope the villain will be shortly discovered and brought to justice, and in this wish we are sure we shall be joined by every one who knows the worth of the Gentleman whose domestic security has been so dreadfully violated." " During Friday night, and on Saturday, the Magistrates and Police continued on the alert.—• In addition to the eleven Deputies already men- tioned, several other persons were apprehended. The locks were taken from the fowling- pieces in the gunsmiths' shops, and the gunpowder in the hands of the dealers was removed to a place of security ; while the whole military force which could be spared, within marching distance, was added to the troops already here. In the course of Saturday night eight of the prisoners were sent off to London, secured by fetters, and well guarded. " On Sunday a strong detachment of the 8th Regiment of foot came from Warrington in boats; the Cheshire Yeomanry also hastened to the post of danger. The 54th Foot and 1st Dra- goon Guards, were also on active service ; the whole tinder the command of the Commander of the District, Lieut.- General Sir John Byng. In the evening of Sunday, Mr. Nadin set off post for Sowerby, in Yorkshire, where he secured Knight, one of the leaders of the self- named Reformers ; and about 4 o'clock yesterday morning lodged him in the New Bailey prison." The Manchester Mercury of April 1, says— " The horrible plot was known immediately after the frustration ofthe Petitioners journey to Lon- don, or more familiarly speaking, the Blanket Expedition. Delegates from distant, ( chiefly manufacturing) towns, met frequently to discuss the plan of insurrection, which was fixed to have taken place simultaneously in all the appointed towns. About midnight on Sunday, the discharge of a rocket was to be the signal for the com- mencement of operations, when all the strangers flocking in from the different approaches to the town were to make the best of their way to tlie old rallying point near St. Peter's ; there the resident conspirators would be ready to receive them ; they were then to separate in divisions, some to attack the Barracks, others the New Bailey, the Bank, the Police Offices, the resi- dences of our official functionaries, and certain other private houses. For our invaluable Deputy Constable, who was rated by them as worth a thousand men, a trap was to be laid. Upon the alarm being sounded, Mr. Nadin was expected to rush forth, when an individual, who had already undertaken the commission, was with unerring aim to be ready to dispatch him. In fact, alto- ether such a direful and monstrous scene of commotion was hatching, as is horrible to reflect upon." Campbeltown, March 29.— The following are some additional particulars of the loss of the Isabella West Indiaman, Captain Crawford: — The American ship Lancaster, Capt. Jackson, from Liverpool for Philadelphia, arrived this morning, She sailed from Liverpool on the 21st inst. Yesterday, at one o'clock in the afternoon, Holyhead bearing S. S. E. distance 25 miles, she and the Isabella, Crawford, bound to the West Indies, which had sailed from the Clyde oil the 20th inst ran against each oilier with such violence, that the Isabella sunk in five minutes. The passengers and crew got on board the Lancaster, saving nothing but what w as on their back. The Lancaster has her bow stove in, her bowsprit carried away, her foremast sprung, ht- r bead and cat w ater gone. In this condition they hoisted a signal of distress; when the Margaret, M'Millan, of this port, some distance off, proceeded to their assistance, and put a man on board the Lancaster, and, at the request of the Captain and passengers, stuck by her till she arrived here. Falmouth, March 29.— Arrived the Lady Wellington packet, with mails from Jamaica whence she sailed on the 20th of February, The following is an extract of her Journal:— " On the 21st of February, in lat. 19. 53. long. 75. 57. discovered a brig, apparently a cruiser, standing on a wind towards us, under easy sail; hoisted our colours, which were answered by an American ensign and pendent I at a quarter of an hour after, the above vessel bore up and ran alongside us, hailed, and ordered us to lay '. o : that lie would send a boat on board. Imme- diately after, the American colours were hauled down, and a blue, white and blue, horizontal flag hoisted, with broad pendent of the same it the main. An Officer came on board in American Naval uniform, and inserted in his book our ship's name, whence we came, where bound, & e. He demanded to see the ship's papers, which I complied with; and said it was the Commander's request that I should go on board the brig, which I refused. I was infor- med the brig was a Buenos Ayres cruiser, last from the United States, commanded by C. Taylor; and that the islands of Cuba and Porto Rico were under strict blockade. The above vessel appeared quite new, and a very fast sailer; observed the Commander to give hi orders iu English. "• The following ships, which are building, are to be proceeded with, viz:— Thunderer, Hawke, Talavera, Prince Regent, Prin- cess Charlotte, Carnatic, Agincourt, Britannia, London, Belleisle, Formidable, and Melville, ofthe line; Royal George and Prince Regent yachts; Southampton, Isis, Lancaster, Winchester, and Portland, fifties; Venus, Blonde, Hebe, Diana, Latona, Blanche, Minerva, Are- thusa, Fisguard, Melampns, Trincomalee, and Seringa, patam, frigates; Tees, Samaraug, Lynx, and Athol, sloops. The following are to be repaired in the pre- sent year, for which the expenses are also pro- vided, viz : — Genoa, Scarborough, Devonshire, Tremendous, Poic- tiers, Glocester, Fame, Warspite, Illustrious, Sutlan, Benbow. Egmont, Edinburgh, Elephant ( to be cut down to a frigate) Foudroyant, Stirling Castle, Mulgrave, and one other line- of- battle ship ; Junon, Nercus,; Maidstone, Aigle, Shannon, Menelaus, Undaunted, Leonidas, Apollo, Briton, Seine, Belvidera, Resistance, Pyramus. Dartmouth ( never at sea, £ 12,000), Theban, and two other frigates; Curlew, Parthian, Drake, Raleigh, Red- pole, Peloris, Plot, and three other sloops. Foreign Seamen.— The Foreign Seamen ' on board the Batavian and Helder, lying in the River, are iu a good state of health, and many are leaving the ships by their own request. The burials during the last two months were about 28. Some prisoners of war, recently returned from Russia, report, that on the extreme frontiers of that Empire there still remain some thousands of the old French army, whom the want of the means necessary for a long and difficult jouruey prevent returning to their homes. Those to whom gold is offered in payments should be careful that it is of proper weight as a great quantity has been put in circulation from abroad, which is very light, and will not be taken either by the Bank, or at the bankers. His Excellency the Spanish Ambassador does not leave till about the middle of this month for Paris. He will take over with him eight beau- tiful grey carriage horses, and four saddle horses, exclusive of other horses which his: Excellency has already sent over. On Ihe 17th ult. the Senators of Hamburgh transmitted fo Prince Blucher, at Berlin, the di- ploma of the freedom of that city, inclosed in a massive gold box of exquisite workmanship, The box is supported by four eagles, and on the lid bears the inscription in Latin:—" The Senate i of Hamburgh lo the German Hero." OFFENCES, & e. Singular Circumstances relative to two of the Prisoners• \ who lately escaped from Newgate. The escape of four prisoners over the eastern wall of the prison must be fresh in. the recollec- tion of our readers, and also that it was reported recently of one of them being taken into custody near Hereford, charged with a capital offence. Davis went down to Hereford last week to iden- tify the man, and he turned out to be Thomas Hardy, who stood for trial for burglary. Hardy was taken by the farmer's servant where lie committed the robbery, in escaping across a field, and the man who took him is now in custody for felony in the same prison, and also the prosecu- tor of Hardy. One must be pardoned before he can give evidence against tlie other, aud it supposed Hardy will escape that charge, and he brought back to Newgate.— Bowerman, another of the convicts who escaped with Hardy, is living in tlie woods bordering on the forest about Burford, committing depredations, and with fire arms setting the couutry at defiance. His mother and sister supply him with food by day- time. He is held in terror in that part of the country.— ( Morning Paper.) A tin case has been stolen out of the house of Mr. G. Burnaud, ol'New Bond street, containing near £ 200. in Bank of England notes, together with several bills of exchange, amounting fa near £ 1000. The house of Mr. Wilson, in Brick- lane, Spi- tal- fields, was broken into on Monday evening, and robbed of a quantity of table aud tea spoons, 80lb. of black tea, and £ 2 in copper money. While the servants of Sir C. Kent were last week brewing, at his seat at Little Panton, near Grantham, some incendiary mixed in the liquor a quantity of blue vitriol, evidently with intent to poison the family. Providentially some of the vitriol remained undissolved amongst the dregs, when the ale was drawn off, which prevented the horrid design being effected. A. person, we hear, is suspected, but no proofs have yet been ascertained. A few days ago a young man, apparently about 18 years of age, went into Ihe porter's lodge at Ardgowan, near Glasgow, representing that he was a joiner out of employment, and had wanted meat for two days . the woman of the house, after having got some victuals for him, had occasion to go to the door, when the ungrateful wretch took the opportunity to steal a watch, which was hanging on the wall, and although search was almost immediately made, he found means to make his escape. On the morning of the 22d ult. a barn belonging to Mr. Hopkins, in Kenilworth, near Warwick, was broke open, and robbed of abofit 12 bags of wheat.— Wednesday morning last^ a barn in the occupation of Mr Richards, in the same village, was robbed of 14 bags of pea § , which were taken away in a waggon traced to a farm- house between Warwick and Birming- ham. The waggon was being unloaded, when the owner of the grain arrived with some of his neighbours, who secured the property aud the robbers. The former was brought back, and the robbers committed to Warwick Jail. They prove to be a farmer and his sons, the owners ofthe waggon and horses. Highway Robbery.— A few evenings back, Mr. Jones, a farmer, was stopped near the Serpentine River by a boy of a captivating address, who walked with him some distance, and then asked him for some money. Mr. Jones said he had none to give away, upon which the boy made a signal, and a fellow jumped from behind a tree, and with a horrible oath, said that Mr. J. was taking improper liberties with the boy, and that if he did not give him ten shillings he would follow him and expose him to every person he met. Mr. Jones did not think proper to comply with this extraordinary request, and was walking on, when the fellow pulled out a knife, and swore he would run it through his body if lie did not comply; upon which the farmer, from motives of fear, was compelled lo give up the ten shillings. From Marlborough- street Police- office, on Saturday, three hay carters were fully committed lo be tried for robbing their master, Mr. Vernon, stable- keeper, in Bond- street, who has two hay farms at Hendon, of various trusses of hay and sundry parcels of corn, which Mr. Vernon cal- culates have amounted for some time in value to about twenty pounds per week. The men packed on their carts more trusses than a load, which consist of 30, and dropped them to pur- chasers on the road to town. One of the re- ceivers an ostler is also to be tried. Mr. Vernon made a person take lodging on the road, aud he proved Ihe facts beyond doubt. The youngest of the three carters, a lad, has since confessed, and given all the particulars at length. Another mode of robbery is, for the hay- binder, the carter being in collusion, to bind up in each truss a half more than the legal weight, and thus to sell a load and a half to some dishonest purchaser, at a rate cheaper than the market price, the knaves receiving a fee. GUILDHALL.— Early Depravity.— Monday H. Sullivan, aged 10, M. Alley, aged 0, and T. Connell, aged 8 years, were brought up, charged with a burglary under the following circum- stances :— Mrs. Farthing deposed, that she keeps a coffee- shop in Warwick- lane. On Saturday Inst she left it safely locked up, and on her re- turn to it on Monday morning, she found a sky- light had been broken open, by which the house had been entered, and many of the articles iu it ( tossed aboiif, and many of them stolen ; among which was a prayer- book and a quantity of sugar. Suspecting the boy Sullivan, whom she knew to be a bad boy, she gave information to an Officer, who, on searching his father's lodg- t'ound the prayer- book and the sugar. The other boys were apprehended in consequence of their having been seen in company w ith Sullivan, near the bouse on the night of Ihe robbery. Alley and Connell, the two younger boys,. imme- diately confessed that Sullivan had enticed them from . school to commit this robbery, having him-.- self first stolen the articles he had furnished them with in order to break open the house. It was therefore, at his instigation they got up to' the sky- light, bv his assistance, and then got down into the house, which they opened for ft 1 him, and which he plundered. Sullivan wan fully committed for trial, and Alley and Con- nell were admitted as evidence against him. I LONDON* FRIDAY, APRIL 4, ISTk The PARis Papers of Monday readied town ou Thursday night, aud those of Tuesday on Friday morning. From the interior of France . they furnish us with but little intelligence of in- terest. They mention the dispersion of a regu- larly organized band of robbers in the Depart- ment of the Orne. These outlaws arc said to have mixed up politics- with their climes, and sowed disaffection w herever they appeared. The Pashaw of Bagdad has followed the example of liis brother Pashaw in Egypt, and bid defiance to the Sovereignty of the Ottoman Porte. The regular Turkish troops sent to enforce obedi- ence, had invested the town at the date of the last accounts, which reached Constantinople in January.— The Pashaw was resolutely defending himself, and was understood to have numerous secret supporters in the country round. On Monday se'nnight the Princess of Wales passed through Augsburgh, 011 her way to Carlsruhe, to pay a visit to her sister- in law the Queen Dowager of Wurtemberg. Iler Royal Highness, ' according to the private letters from Paris, ar- rived at Carlsruhe next day, aud experienced a kind reception. COURIER EXTRAORDINARY, APRIL 1. Lady Elizabeth Stewart, the wife of the British Ambassador, was delivered of a daughter this morning. A most disgraceful occurrence took place at Versailles, a few .- days since, in which the gardes du corps were concerned. Examples have been made of the most unruly, by striking them off the rolls, besides imprisoning them. Paris, April 1.-— Yesterday ihe King stood fit the windows of his Palace, and shewed him- self to the promenade in the gardens of the Thuilleries, for an hour. We need scarcely add that his Majesty was received with shouts of Vice le Roi! On the night of the 26th of March,, a jeweller's shop at Bordeaux was broken open, and 30,000 francs woith of diamonds, & c. stolen. One of the French Provincial Journals, pub- lished at Caen, in the Department of Calvados, contains a Military Order which has excited tonic notice, because it bears an allusion to po- litics; mid yet it is said, that NO party in France Understands the allusion. We give a short ex- tract from the Order, which is signed by the Baron D'Etoquigny, Commander of the 14th Military Division, and is dated March 14:— *' The General commanding this Division is anxious to announce the total destruction of a band of robbers, which w as organized last month iu the Department of Orne ; and which, to give a strength to its system of plunder, sought to mix up politics with it. The Local Authorities " were only the more ardent in co- operating with the armed force in the pursuit. By their intel- ligence, and the vigorous measures which they took, they completely annihilated the band of robbers: some of the leaders were killed, some wounded, and others are taken, against whom the Prevotal Court will proceed. The National ' Guard was very useful." Extract of a Letter from Count Rastopchin to a Friend in London. " I was much surprised at seeing, in Buona- parte's Appeal to the British nation, that he had incurred danger in wishing to save Moscow from the conflagration, in the year 1812. His amazing efforts and greatness of mind were how- ever limited to mounting his horse as soon as the fire appeared, and gallopping to the distance of two English miles from the town, iu order to place himself in safety. He passed three days and three nights in a palace, in the midst of a corps of troops who bivouacked, and only re- turned to Moscow on the fourth day, when the conflagration had ceased, after having consumed 7632 houses. I was well informed of all that was passing in the town by means of six Officers disguised, who remained undiscovered during the whole of Buonaparte's stay at Moscow ; but on his quitting it, he set fire - to the Palace of the Kremlin among others, and to the castle of Petrovsky, which had served him as an asylum during the great conflagration. Perhaps this was done by him as an act of kindness, with the intention of purifying them by fire from the evils he had been the source of. From the tone of this Appeal it would seem that he dictated it at the moment when his mind was guided by the same feelings as during his passage to the island of St. Helena iu 1815, and lie appears unwilling to forget the style of his Bulletins, which serves as a proof that habit is a second nature." HOUSE OF COMMONS. MONDAY, •".!•> HCH 31. The Deputy Usher of the Black Rod summoned the House to the House of Peers, to hear the Royal Assent given to the Seditious Assembly Bill, and the Bill for regulating the Navy Half- pay, in certain instances. ADJOURNMENT OF THE HOUSE. The Chancellor of the Exchequer moved, that the House at its vising should adjourn till Monday se'nnight. The Salt Bill was read a first time, and ordered to be read a second time on Friday fortnight. Mr. Brougham mentioned his intentioh to propose some regulations, ou a future occasion, respecting the patronage of Marylrbone Parish or Parishes. Mr. Ponsonby, at the request of, and for, an Hon. Friend, gave notice of a motion on the Catholic claims for sonic time about the 20th of April. The other orders of the day were then disposed of, aud the House adjourned till this day fortnight.

SUSSEX LENT ASSISES, VIOLATION OF A FEMALE. George Faulkener and Edmund Bowley. the former aged 29, and the latter aged 16, were capitally indicted for having ravished Sarah Phillips, tit the parish of Portsdale, en the 9th of February last, Mr. Long having opened the circumstances of this cases proceeded to call his witnesses. ... Sarah Phillips, the prosecutrix, was first examined. She deposed, that she is between 14 and 15 years of age; that on the : ul of February- she quitted the family of Mr. Attree, at Brighton, with whom she had lived servant, and went to her graudmother's at Lewes. She stopped with her grandmother till the 9th, and then set out to go to her mothers at Shoreham. It was on Sunday morning. She commenced her journey on foot, and she was alone. On getting within a mile of Brighton, she was overtaken by the two prisoners. Faulkener asked her if she was going to Shoreham: she answered in the affirmative; and lie said, " so were they." He then asked her if she had not come from Lewes, she said " yes;" hut on being further asked if she was not tired, she said " no." Faulkener said he should be if he had walked so far. Three men now came up, and entered into conversation with prisoners. Witness quickened her pace, wishing to avoid the prisoners' company. They, however, soon overtook her. She heard them whispering as they came up, and Bowley went into a field out of the road. Faulkener then came close to her, and asked why her sweetheart did not come with her? She said she had none; and he added, if she had, it was very unkind of him not to accompany her. Aftersome further conversation, he suddenly seized her round the waist, and carried her into the field. She resisted as much as she could, and cried out that she would tell her fa- ther and mother. The prisoner put his hand on her mouth to prevent her crying. She did not see Bowley at that time. He then threw her on the ground, and by force accomplished his purpose. Bowley came up while Faulkener was thus engaged, and as soon as Faulkener rose, he perpetrated the like offence. She still conti- nued crying, and had lost all power of resistance. When she was permitted to get up she went on towards Brigh- ton, and meeting a lame shepherd, who heard her crying she told him the ill treatment she had received. While she was talking to the shepherd, the Rev. Mr. Prosser came up, and she told her story to him also ; as she did to a man who rode upon horseback. She was then conducted to Brighton. Tnc Rev. Mr. Prosser confirmed the story of the pro- secutrix, as to the early communication of her misfor- tune; as did the shepherd, and a medical gentleman by whom she was examined, proved the completion of sexual intercourse. The testimony of the prosecutrix was given in tiie clearest and most unexceptionable manner. The prisoners had nothing to urge in their defence Mr. Justice Dallas summed up the evidence in the most impressive manner, and the Jury found both the prisoners Guilty.— Death. At these Assizes which ended on Wednesday se'n- night, forty- one prisoners were tried, seventeen of whom were, capitally convicted and received sentence of Death, viz.— George Faulkener and Edward Bowley, for ravishing Sarah Phillips, a girl 14 years of age.— Wm. Hickman alias Dungate, for horse- stealing.— Patrick Monagan for a highway robbery, in the parish of Graffham. George Stuart and Richard Stuart, for uttering a forged five pound note of the Hastings Bank.— Thomas Ho- neyset. for wilfully discharging a horse pistol at Saml. Pettit, with an intent to kill or maim him.— William Sinden, alias King, alias Gold, for a burglary in the house of Neptune Blood, of Brighton, esq.- W. Jones Wm. Graham, Samuel Gratton, Shadrack Reen, Saml Arnold, John Hill, J. Hinds, and Francis Goddard, for blond and white silk cord; itisfininished by pink strings, and a bunch of exotics in front; white kid gloves; blush- colo'ar kid slippers. AGRICULTURE. MONTHLY REPORT FOR MARCH. The month of February, like the preceding one, was particularly favourable to the operations of agriculture, which were pursued throughout most successfully, and without a check; the heavy lands, notwithstanding, presented Considerable difficulty of culture, enhanced by the low condition of the farm- horses, among those proprietors who had it not in their power to support them so liberally as usual The high Winds, mischievous in other respects, have had the good effect of drying and improving the quality of corn in stack, and have, in some, measure, stood in the place of frost, by drying the lands, during so many months drenched with constant rain. The succeeding dry weather has had the snnie beneficial effect. The remainder of the autumnal wheat- sowing was chicfiy finished in the last month, aud very well put in. The late frosts and dry weather 1iave checked the wheats, which were previously in a verdant and forwardxtate, but with the exceptionof those which were la* test sown and have appeared; they have set geire'rally a healthy appearance, and are waiting for mild weather and moderate spring showers to render them a luxuriant crop. All of whom were reprieved before the Judge left the town ; except Faulkener and Bowley, who are left for execution, and it is thought will suffer the dreadful sentence of the law. Extraordinary Character.— Extract of a Let- ter from Flanders.—" In one of the Communes, near St. Omers, is a character, which may, perhaps, afford your Readers some amusement. It is that of a Lady of fortune, above .60, who has long expended a considerable part of her income in keeping a pack of hounds for the de- struction of wolves, which some years back very inuch infested that part of the country, and did great damage. The hounds are still in her pos- session, and she takes great delight in going to the kennel, and seeingthem. A few years since, she used to go out to hunt, and continued to pursue the cha- se for sometimes 15 or 16 succes- sive days, as the wolves changed their haunts. She was then attended by a great retinue. The outer gates of her chateau are still crowded with the heads of wolves she has destroyed.— ller dress is as strange as her mode of life, con- sisting of a green frock coat, with a gold bugle horn embroidered on each skirt, a yellow' waist- coat with black stripes, n kind of plush, or else black velveteen small clothes, jockey boots, and a round hat, with a broad gold band and very large gold buckle iu front. She never deviates from this costume, and is not at all displeased at being addressed, by a stranger as Monsieur. To all appearance she is more like a servant in livery that any thing else. Notwithstanding these peculiarities, she is a very good kind ol person, gives away money and other necessaries, and is universally beloved by the inhabitants, who are never tired of relating the services she has rendered them. The English Officers in general who have been billited upon her, met. with the greatest respect and attention, and dint cu her table, free of expence," Early Potatoes.— We are glad to find-, that the premium proposed by the Highland Society, for raising early potatoes, has attracted atten- tion, as there are several fields in Ibis neighbour- hood already planted, which w ill produce early food, and give present employment. ' Phis spe- cies of encouragement merits the attention not not only of agricultural societies, but also of all local associations connected with the subsistence and employment of the labouring classes.— ( Edinburgh Courant.) The Cumberland Packet contains the follow- ing paragraph:—" We are credibly- informed, that throughout this part of the country, the greatest preparations are making for the produc- tion of grain. In a range of not less than 30 miles, from f*. iis town to Duddon, so much ploughed land has not been seen in tiie memory of any person living.—' Be gracious, Heaven! for man has clone his best.'" With great pleasure we find in several coun- try papers, the most cheering accounts of the revival of commerce and - manufactures. A few days ago were stated the great improvements a1 the port of Bristol. The Edinburgh Paper, says, the business of the Leitli Custom- house has re- vived considerably of late, which indicates a correspondent improvement in the trade of the port. A few days since no fewer than 10 foreign entries were made at the Custom house. The Swansea Paper congratulates its readers on the great increase of its commercial interests. The exports have exceeded those of 1814 by upwards of half a million sterling. The Paddington Canal has of lafe had a great increase of business by bringing up hardware from Birmingham. The Paper of that town, arrived on Monday morning, contains the following paragraph :— " We are most happy to announce a circum stance which gives us every reason to hope that the sunshine of returning prosperity will speedily beam upon us. It is well known to all this pail of the world, that as tiie decline of the iron trade was the forerunner of all the commercial mis- fortunes we have felt and deplored, so we trust its revival will be tbe harbinger of future'pros- perity; and that our industrious and patient population will progresiively experience the comforts of returning trade and employment. At a meeting of the Iron Masters at Dudley on Monday last, it was resolved, That, in eonse qtience of tbe very great demand for Iron, and its extreme scarcity, an advance of upwards o! 15 per cent, be agreed upon. This, we flatter ourselves, is a good omen, and we hail It with joy and confidence," SURRY ASSIZES, Kingston, April 1. CHARGES OF CHILD MURDER. Mary Evans was indicted for the murder of her bastard child, by drowning. The prisoner in this case lived as servant at Mortlake, in this parish; and her appearance creating a suspicion of pregnancy, her mistress taxed her with the fact, which, however, she denied, and conducted herself so impertinently that she was dismissed from her service. • She then went to lodge at a cottage in the neighbour- hood, when her pregnancy was also visible. It was ap- parent that she had been delivered at the latter end of November last ; and one woman, who lodged in the house with Tier, said she thought she heard a child cry- in her room one night; but there was no proof of her actual delivery. A day or two afterwards a child was found wrapped in a Coloured apron iu a pond in a mea- dow at Mortlake. Suspicion immediately attached to the prisoner, awl- she was apprehended. Upon an ex- amination of tier-. by an experienced matron, she had every appearance of having recently been delivered of a child. The medical man Who examined the. body of the child, said it had a contusion on the back of the head; and from the inflamation abont the wound, be was of opinion that the child Had been born alive; but it might have got the wound in delivery, and lie did not make further experiments. The Learned Judge explained to the Jury the pre- sent, law on this subject, Which was relaxed from the ancient severity, by which concealment of the birth was made evidence of the murder of a bastard child ; but, as the law now stood, if a Jury were not satisfied that the evidence proved the murder of the child, they might find the concealment of the birth, which subjected the offender to a minor punishment. The Jury found % e prisoner Guilty of concealing the birth of the child, and she was sentenced to two years' imprisonment. Sarah Mitchell, charged with a similar offence, was « lso found Guity yof concealing the birth of I he child, and was sentenced to twelve months' imprisonment. MANSLAUGHTER.— Robert Shelton was convicted of manslaughter, in killing Edmund Railton, at Reigate, on the 5th January last. The prisoner and the deceased were both lads and good friends, who having quarrelled, agreed to box ; in the battle the deceased unfortunately ruptured a vessel in the head, which caused his death. The prisoner was sentenced to six weeks imprisonment in the House of Correction. In the Civil Side one cause occupied the whole day, which was an indictment against the Parish of Wands- worth for not repairing a road. After hearing a long string of witnesses, the. . Jury decided it was not a public road, and consequently the." parish not bound to repair. EXECUTION OP THP. TWO GREERS For the Murder their Father. These unfortunate young men, immediately after sentence, were conveyed under a guard to the New Prison, at Carrickfergus ; they walked from the Court- house to the Gaol with a firm step, but appeared much dejected, and did not make any observations. Thev wore lodged in separate cells, and on being asked if they wished for any: Clergyman to attend them, they answered " Yes," but not any particular one; any who would afford consolation being acceptable. The Rev. J. Brown, who had humanely attended on the occasion, immediately visited them, " and remained considerable time, and afterwards attended them. They were also visited by the Rev. R. Dobbs. the Rev. Mr. Smith, and the Rev. J, Savage:- these Gentlemen were successful in their endeavours to arouse them to a sense of their situation, but could not prevail on them to acknowledgetheir guilt ; both protesting their innocence, and stating," as their opinion, that it was only necessary to acknowledge guilt to God, and not to man. In the course of Tuesday, however, R. Greer admitted, that he saw the corpse of his father in the Waste- house, which did not surprise him, as he knew his father was " to be put out of the way;" he also admitted, that the letter found by Dr. Stuart in the prison was written by him. J. Greer would not admit any thing. Thev both slept during the night, and eat apparently with an appetite. John Greer employed part of his time in writing. Oil Wednesday about 12 o'clock, the High Sheriff, attended by a party of the Royal Scots, went to the Prison, and the criminals were brought out soon after. They were placed in the rear of the cart, in which were their coffins, aud attended by the Clergyman; the exe- cutioner, disguised, immediately behind them. The procession then proceeded slowly to the place of exe- cution, one mile from the town; on its arrival the crimi- nals joined in singing a hymn, and afterwards knelt down with the Clergymen and others, and prayed fer- vently, with an audible voice ; at this time R. Greer was observed to be much agitated, and trembled vio- lently ; J. Greer continued to evince his usual firmness. Prayers being ended, and the fatal preparations com- pleted, the wretched brothers shook hands and bid farewell. John first mounted the cart, and being tied up whilst Robert remained below, asked, " Is my bro- ther Robert to be thrown off with me?" which was an- swered in the affirmative. Robert was then tied up beside his brother ; they were both again solemny ex- horted to declare their guilt.— John said," 1 forgive my persecutors, prosecutors, and all my enemies, and I do hope God will forgive them as I do." Robert prayed aloud to the Almighty to enable him, in these his last moments, to tell the truth, and then, addressin himself to those about him, said, " I am a guilty sinner, and suffer justly and lawfully ," then turning to his brother said, " John, will you not confess?" To this appeal, John made no reply, when a person present said, " John, do you hear what your brother Robert says j" To which he replied, " I have done ;" meaning that he would not again speak. The cart was now drawn away, and they were launched into eternity. Robert appeared to suffer little, but John was long con vulsed. After hanging the usual time, their bodies were cut down, put into shells, and sent off to the In- firmary at Lisburn, for dissection, pursuant to their sen tence. It is almost unnecessary to comment on the. fate of these unfortunates; the horrible crime of parricide, for which they suffered, being, until now, unknown in this country. Besides Ike above particulars, furnished by a re- spectable correspondent, we have been informed, that when John knelt down to prayer, he expressed himself in language extremely appropriate, pathetic, and even elegant. His demeanor was collected, and his enun. ciation distinct. Robert's voice was tremulous and feeble, and his whole frame greatly agitated. The per- sons near to them formed a circle, and also knelt during prayer. The whole scene was impressive and awfully solemn.— Though John refused to make confession of his guilt, yet he never denied it. All accounts say, that John was an excellent scholar. He was about 30 years of age, and Robert about 20. The High Sheriff, who attended to see the sentence of the- law carried into effect, was accompanied by a number of respectable Gentlemen. youso LADIES' This day CLASS BOOK. bound th « published, in Elmo, price 5s. 2d Edition of rgpiJE FEMALE SPEAKER J or, Miscella- EL neons Pieces, in Prose and Verse; selected from the best Writers, and adapted to the use of Young Women ; by Anna Laetitia Barbauld.

A Bill to make better provision for the Repres- sion of Bankruptcy is now in the House; the preamble states, tiiat—- " Whereas divers persons, craftily obtaining into their hands great substance of other men's goods, and not minding to pay to their creditors their debts, at their own will and pleasure consume the substance so ob- tained of others in immoderate living, and llien become bankrupt, contrary to all reason, equity, and good con- science, and to the Statutes of this Realm heretofore made to the contrary; and it is expedient to make some better provision for the repression of such bankrupts." It therefoie enacts, that " On the last examination of every bankrupt, Commissioners shall inquire into the cause of bankruptcy and conduct of the bankrupt, and if guilty of gross injustice or fraudulent practices, they shall report the same to the Lord Chancellor, who shall disallow his certificate, unless good cause shall be shewn against such Report. Commissioners shall furnish bankrupts with a copy of such Report. Disallowance of certificate shall be notified in the London Gazette. When cause shall be shewn against such Report, the Lord Chancellor may consider the smallness of the injury done by the bankrupt. For the more solemn aiid full examination of bankrupts. Commissioners shall appoint and set apart a day for the last examination." IRELAND— ANTRIM ASSIZES— Carrickfergus, March 24. Before the Hon. Baron M'Cleeland. PARRICIDE.— John Greer and Robert Greer, were in- dicted for the murderof Archibald Greer ( their father), at Church- tumbler, on the 20th of April— the prisoner John, having given him a wound on the head with a hatchet, of which he died ; the prisoner Robert being aiding and assisting. They were also tried for felo- niously combining to murder the said Archibald Greer, This dreadful crime was proved by an accomplice, whose testimony was corroboiated by circumstantial evidence. The Learned Judge addressed Hie prisoners in a most solemn and impressive manner, suitable to the awful situation in which ihey stood; and then sentenced them to be. hanged on Wednesday next. The prisoners heard the dreadful sentence of the law in silence, and were immediately conducted from the bar back to the gaol. The trial lasted from ten until about G o'clock, and the Court was crowded to excess. The prisoners are both young men, and married. A most extraordinary and unprecedented trial took place ai the late Enniskillen Assizes. A man of the name of Edward Rutlidge was indicted and tried for the fourth time, for the murder of his nephew. On the three former trials the Juries disagreed, and each of them, aftei continuing a night in deliberating on the evidence, was discharged by the Judge at the verge of the county. The last evidence on the trial differed ver y little from that produced on the precedtng trials. It was entirely circumstantial, but sufficiently strong— if the Jury believed it, to convict theprisoner. The Jury, however, after deliberating for about VijO bo'urSj re- turned a verdict of— Not Guilty, The Princess of Wales.— Her Royal Highness passed the 24th of March at Augsburgh, and' on the ensuing day continued her journey for Stutgardt: It is not known ( says the letter) whether her Royal Highness will stop at Slut- gardt to visit her Sister- in- law, the Queen Dowager of Wurtcmburgh, or at Carlsruhe, or pursue her route to Paris, Maundy Thursday.— On Thursday, last the annual Royal donations to 70 poor men and as many women, being the number of yeats of the King's age, were distributed with the usual formalitiesin Whitehall. Each person received 4lbs. of beef, 36 salt herrings, 2 salt cod, 2 salt salmon, and a quantity of bread. After which a wooden bowl filled with ale, was given to each, from which the health of the donor was drank. They then departed, and in the afternoon returned, when to each was given a purse containing 79 silver pennies; and to the men a piece of woollen cloth, some linen, a pair of stockings, and a pair of shoes; and tbe ceremony finished by drinking the King's health in a cup of wine. A few days ago, as Mr. A. Fraser, wine- cooper, of Inverness, was eating a herring ( from West coast) he found a small silver coin in the body ; it is a Russian piece, marked 5 hop.— value five kopecks, or about 2Jf.— date 1776. A partridge's next of 16 eggs( was found the week before last, on the grounds qf Mr. Chap- man, of Baddingham, Suffolk. The old birds were discovered sitting on the nest, and their eggs in a forward state of incubation; an in stance deserving of record, as perhaps one so remarkably early may never have occurred in Ihe memory of the oldest sportsman. There is now a woman residing at White chapel turppike, named Smart, who has lately buried her seventh husband ; she is between 40 and 50 years of age, she never had any children and it is said she is on the point of being again married to a young man about 20, an itinerant dealer iu oranges, well known about the Stock Exchange ; she gets her livelihood by- selling PLOUGHMAN'S DROPS. A Wonderful Cure of a Scald Head. To DR. SMITH, UPTON MAGNA. DEAR SIR, WE think ourselves bound in gratitude to you, for the cure of a child of our's, who was sent to a Boarding School in this County ; she had not been there six weeks before she catched a disorder in her head, ( called the Scald Head.) The people belonging to the place did every thing in their power to cure the child, with outward applications; there were fivo children in that condition, before this child ; who were attended by the Shrewsbury Doctors, and no doubt they put plenty of quicksilver, ami other poisonous presetiptions, to dry the outside, while the disorder continued underneath. At length ten holes appeared upon the head, and the top of the skull displayed a spectacle of horror i this child is completely cured, aud the head entirely free from blemishes, by taking only two small bottles of Ploughman's Drops, and using tho salve. The child is now in perfect health, and the hair in a beautiful and flourishing condition, aud may be seen at Shrewsbury any day. N. B. Dr. Smith recommends good living for the above- named disorder, and no physic. For delicacy they don't wish to mention the child's name public. D. S. Upton Magna, Dec. 4,1816.

The Duke of Toreutum ( Macdoiiald). is disabled by the gout from exercising the duties of Major General of the Guards. Two more duels are mentioned : in one, the nephew of Buonaparte's physician has fallen; and in the other a half pay Colonel from Provence has been wounded.— Quarrels between Royalists and half pay officers continue; aud with t. hose who wear flowers emblematical of Buonaparte. Disturbances had occurred at Versailles from some of the officers of the guard making a party against an actress, and persons of the town taking her part; in con- sequence of which the theatre was closed, and some officers suspended. The Duke of Belluno has issued an order on the subject. SECRET COMMITTEE ON FINANCE. The First Report from the Secret Committee on Finance states, that the first object of the Committee was to ascertain what Offices might be reduced or regulated ( after the expiration of the existing interests) without detriment to the public service. Secondly, under what regula- tions such of those offices as might be deemed proper to continue, ought to be administered after the expiration of said interests; and Thirdly, as it is obvitms, that whenever such regulations and reductions as are contemplated by your Committee, shall be carried into effect, the means of rewarding meritorious public service will be in great measure taken from the Crown, your Committee deem it indispensable that provisions should be made for enabling the Ciown, under propeT regulations and restrictions to afford a reasonable recompence for the faithful discharge of high end effective civil offices."

Mv LORD,—. As it is of the greatest importance to prevent, as far as possible, : the circulation of Blas- phemous and Seditions Pamphlets and Writings, of which, for a considerable . time past, great numbers havo beensold and distributed throughout the country, I have thought it my duty to Consult the Law Officers of the Crown, whether an individual found selling, or in any way' publishing such Pamphlets or Writings, might be brought immediately before a Justice of the Peace, under a warrant issued for the purpose, to an- swer for his conduct. The Law Officers having ac. cordingly taken this matter into their consideration have notified to ine their opinion, that a Justice of the Peace may issue a warrant to apprehend a person charged before him upon oath, with the publications of libels of the nature in question, and compel him to give hail to answer the charge, Under these circumstances I beg leave to call your. Lordships attention very par- ticularly to this subject; and I have to request, that if On Thursday, Launcelot Boniface, Who was capi- tally convicted at our last Assizes, for shooting at and wounding Mr. Bramwell, suffered the awful sentence of the law at Penenden Heath. This unfortunate man fell a victim to the impulse of unbridled anger, leading him to the indulgence of revenge, by which he forfeited his life to the laws of his country. Very considerable interest was exerted to save him, but without effect ; aud although the fatal termination is deeply to be de- plored, yet it affords much consolation to know ( from the very best information on this head) that be felt and expressed unfeigned contrition for bis offence, and the fullest and most complete assurances of forgiveness was repeatedly exchanged between himself and the prosecutor. His behaviour at the place of execution was firm and serene, arising from a happy assurance of his future safety. Yesterday about noon, an alarming fire broke out, in the Brown Paper Mills, situate at Tovil, belonging to Mr. John Pine, which for some time threatened de ; strnction to the whole premises, but the. wind blowing in a northeilv direction, the flames were happily pre- vented from extending farther than the building where the fire commenced, which originated from a stove placed in the drying room, from whence pipes extended the length of the building for the purpose of drying the paper, and it is supposed the heat fiom these commu- nicated with the paper, the stock of which was unusu- ally large, and the whole was consumed, together with tile building, but we bear that a considerable part oflhe property was insured. Very soon after the fire com- menced intelligence of the same reached the town, and the various fire engines, accompanied by the inhabi. tants hastened to the spot with the utmost alacrity, aided by the soldiers in the Depot, who were instantly ordered out to render every assistance, and the Com mandant, Sir John Brown, with his usual cheerful activity, attended in person to give such directions as circumstances should require, and he very politely ordered a guard to be stationed for the protection of the premises. Had the wind been in a contrary di- rection, the dwelling- bouse and the adjoining mills would almost inevitably bare beendestroyed. The Bill for improving Rye Harbour, presented to the House of Commons on Monday se'nnight, was on Saturday se'nnight withdrawn, on account of its not b. eiug prepared conformably to order, and leave given to bring In another Bill A petition of the woolgrowers in the neighbourhood of Rye, Hastings, and Wilchelsea, was presented to the House of Commons on Friday se'nnight; setting forth that thefree and unrestiicted import of foreign wool has so glutted the market in this country, as to reduce during the. two last years, the price of fine or carding wool below that of coarse or combing wool, of whi, ch there is little or none imported; and praying that the importation of foreigixwool may be prevented; or, if the petitioners are still to remain subject to a free and unrestricted import, tliey respectfully claim a free and unrestricted export— which petition was ordered to lie on the table By a paper laid on the table of the Honse of Com- mons, it appears than no less a sum than ,£ 15,383 7s. Id. was due from the tenants of the estates belonging to Greenwich Hospital, for arrears of rent, for the. year endingthe 21st November, 1816. By another paper it appears that the produce of the lead and silver raised from the Estates of the Hospital, in the counties of Northumberland, and Durham, sold and unpaid for, on the 21sl November, 181G, amounted to ,£ 25,109 10s. On Saturday, a deputation from the Committee of Directors of the Hon. East India Compauy, with their Chairman, visited the Barracks at Chatham, appro- priated for the use ofthe Company's troops, with which they were highly gratified. They afterwards pro- ceeded to the Casemate Barracks, accompanied by Colonels D'Arccy and Paisley, Major Gillispie and Holland, Capt. Somerville, and several other Officers , when Col. Paisley, of the Royal Engineers, who has had a number ot the Hon. Company's Engineer Cadets under his instruction, explained the nature of mining, and exploded a mine ; after which the company pro- ceeded to the Communication Bridge, where the sur prising effects of a torpedo were exhibited, by the ex- plosion of one of those terrible engines of destruction in the River. Having concluded their military inspec- tion, the Gentlemen expressed their satisfaction at what they had seen, and returned to the Crown Inn, Rochester, where tiiey sat down to an elegant dinner.

( From the Norwich Mercury.) " One of those unfortunate accidents which attend even the best arranged establishments that carry with them a certain though remote danger,, occurred here yesterday morning, and We state the extensive calamity with much acute pain. Tile horrible spectacle of . eight mangled carcases is yet before our eyes. These are the miserable victims of the bursting of the steam boiler in the packet which sails from the Foundry- bridge.— Just after the boat had started, it had not gone twenty yards, when the tremendous explosiou took place. The vessel was rent to atoms, so that little remains entire, from the stern to the engine- room, except the keel and flooring. Twenty- two passengers appear to have been on board. The bodies of eight are found— five men and three women, one child yet missing, and six have been setit to the hospital in a wounded state: six escaped unhurt. Of these last, one man was standing over the boiler when the explosion happened. It is said Major Mason was another, whose clothes were torn by the shock, but was otherwise uninjured. The third was an infant, two months' old, and the little in noceot was discovered at the bottom of the vessel in a profound sleep, after the removal of the dreadful wreck. " At this moment the coroner's inquest is sitting, and we have only time to subjoin the names of the dead:— James Squires, of Gorleston; —— Marcon, a linen draper; —— Butler, of Pockthorpe; W. Nicholson, steersman of the boat; Mrs. Smith, who lived near the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital; Eliza Stevens, of Yar- mouth; a man unknown, in a sailor's dress, from Lynn, apparently between 50 and 60 ; both his legs are " torn od; and a young woman, name unknown, who stated that she had been to Higham for relief; the infant was her child." Leicester Assizes.— After a protracted trial of two days ( on Monday 10 hours, and Tuesday 14), eight of the Luddites have been condemned to death; in the whole there were 12 committed. Blackburn and Burton were admitted evidences. Cadwell, taken in fits during the trial, remains for the next Assizes.

The names of those condemned are, Savage, Withers, Towle, Amos, Crowder, Mitchel, Clarke, and Watson. Much important evidence was given on the trial. Fifteen others, for various offences, have been condejuued.— The town was very peaceable daring the Assizes The offence of which the Luddites stood convicted was, for having, on the night of the 20th of June last, assembled with other persons at Loughborough in disturbance of the peace, and unlawfully demolished several lace- frames, the property of John Heathcote and John Boden, in their factory there ; and also for having then and there shot at or being aiding and assisting in shooting at John Asher, Elizabeth Silvester, and Mrs. Rushworth, with intent to kill or do them some bodily harm.— Wm. Burton, aged 20, and John Black- burn, aged 22, charged with the same offence, were ad- mitted evidence. CORN- EXCHANGE, MONDAY, APRIL 7, 181^.

JOHN PINE, takes the earliest opportunity of returning his most grateful thanks to his Friends and Neighbours, for their Very prompt and vigorous exertions this morning ill stopping the progress of the dames, and preserving the greater part of the Mill with the w! lok'of the Dwelling- house, persuaded that had not this assistance been so spontaneously afforded, the whole of the premises must have been destroyed. The attention manifested by Lieut.- Colonel Sir John Brown, and Officers of the Garrison, in aid of the well ordered arrangements and activity of the Agent and Firemen of the Norwich Union, and the Secretary and i' ircmen of the Kent Fire Offices, are most gratefully felt and acknowledged. Lower I'ucil Mill,. April 7, 1817. HOP INTELLIGENCE. Southward, Ap' il 7.— Our Hop trade continues par- ticularly dull, siill we think all the last year's growth will be gone ' ere the new ones can come to market We understand that an illnatured report has been very industriously circulated with a view to mislead the inhabitants of this town and neighbourhood, by inducing a belief that THE REGULATOR NEW POST COACH, would shortly cease running, aud that a negociation had commenced between. Mr. Wilpke, the proprietor, and the other coach masters, for that purpose. We art authorized: to declare the whole report to be false, and also, further to say, that THE REGULATOR will continue to start every morning. a*. 5 o'clock, from the Swan Inn, Maidstone, to the Spur Inn, Borough, and return from tbence'ever'y afternoon at 4 o'clock. On Thursday last, detachments of the 2d Dragoon Guards, 3d Heavy Dragoons 7th Hussars' 11th Light Dragoons, 12th Lancers, and 18th Hussars, amounting to about 150 men and 200 horses, marched from the Cavalry Depot, in this town, to- join their respective Regiments in France. ' The arrangements at present for the departure from England of the Duke and Duchess of Orleans are ( pro- vided the health of the Duchess will permit, who is slightly indisposed) to remove from Twickenham this morning. They will sleep at Rochester, and on Wednes- day proceed to Dover, where they sleep. The Dnke's carriage and horses left on Wednesday last tor Dover. His Serene Highness's saddle horse* will follow him to France. stirrup, he was dragged a considerable distance and taken up in a state of insensibility, much bruised and lacerated, and carried home with little expectation of recovery. Monday evening, as a yonng woman, servant to Mr. Cromar, butcher, in the Borough- road, was returning home from a visit, toiler friends in the neighbourhood of Woolwich, she was met in a solitary part of the road between that and Deptford, by a man and two women, appearing to be vagrants; she took the opposite side of the road, when the man ran up to her, seized her by the neck, and holding a bludgeon over her head, ordered her upon the peril of her life to deliver what money she had in her possession. The poor girl screamed out, and the fellow proceeded lo rifle her pockets, whilst his two associates stood at a distance upon the outlook, and called out to him to take her pelisse, if he could get nothing better ; he had just taken her beaver hat and shoes, and given them to one of the women, when a mastiff dog that had followed Iter from home, sprang upon the fellow, pulled him to the ground, mangled Iris face and ears, and would have torn him to pieces, if he had not been called off' by the. girl, Iu the mean time the tw o women made off, leaving the beaveri hat and shoes behind them. The girl received little or no injury, and continued on her journey, leaving her assailant lying on the road. As Mr. Haycraft, ironmonger, of Deptford, was pro- ceeding from that place to Lewisham, about eight o'clock in the evening a few days since, by the side of Lewisham River, near the Armoury Mills, lie was stopped by a single footpad, armed with a pistol, who robbed him of his gold watch and some silver Desperute Footpad.— A most daring attempt was made by a footpad on Friday se'nnight, to rob*, wo gentlemen in Kent, and which was attended with some extraordinary circumstances. Mr. Brown, a surgeon, in company with his brother- in- law, quitted the coach which had conveye ! tlieni to town from the neighbourhood ofLew- isham, in order to proceed by a footpath across the fields, the nearest way to that village, where one or both of the gentlemen resided. The road they had to pass lay close to the river side, on the banks of which were growing some large bushes; from beneath one of them a ruffian suddenly sprung, w ho, without uttering a word, snapped a pistol at Mr. Brown, which for- tunately missed fire. At, the same moment Mr. B. seized the villain, and in the most viol nt struggle that ensued they both fell into the water together; Mr. Brown endeavoured to keep his hold of the robber, and he as resolutely fought for his liberty. Mr. B.' s brother was prompt in affording assistance to his friend, and having hastily snatched the first weapon he could find, lie began to lay it lustily about the ears of the villian, when the latter deliberately observed," If yon do not leave me alone, I shall drown your friend, for I have him snug enough under the water." With this the villain made another effort, disengaged himself from Mr. Brown, and scrambled down the river to some distance, before he ventured to gain the land. Just as be reached the bank, and Mr. Brown's friend in pursuit, a countryman came in sight, having on his head a basket of eggs. The brother called to him to stop thief, but in attempting to obey him, the villain upset him, eggs and all, into the river, and got clear off. Mr. Brown by this time had been assisted on shore in a mangled and exhausted state. The villain was a stout fellow, and during the contest in and out ofthe water, he had beaten the face of Mr. Brown most violently, and had broken one or two of his ribs. Mr. Brown is, how ever, we are happy to state, in a fair Way of recovery, and the villain has since been taken and committed to the county gaol for trial at the Assizes.
