Wise, Maidstone, paper- manu- facturers, at 12, at Guildhall. — - » tss « < iIS.> 86Sf :—-— LONDON, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 30, 1817. Wednesday morning the Paris Papers of Sun- day were received. They contain a Proclama- tion from General Castanos, relative lo the con- spiracy lately discovered, and some other articles of interest, which we subjoin. " Paris, April 27.— Conjecture is busy upon fhe subject of the arrest of Madame Regnault De St. Jean D'Angely. The business must be a serious one. They speak of correspondence with the enemies oflhe State and Government in foreign parts. But the proper Authority alone is informed of it, and the public know nothing positive. She was interrogated yester- day by M. D'Aubigny, Counsellor of the Royal Court. " Whilst the papers are announcing that the Princess of Wales was returning to Como, pri- vate letters from Munich aSsert that her Royal Highness will be at Paris by ihe 1st of May, and will stay there some weeks. It is thought she will have one of Ihe line hotels iu the Rue St. Honore. A Courier arrived yesterday morning who is said to belong lo her Royal Ilighness's household.-— Quotidienne. " Letters from Algiers say, that the Dey manoeuvres his flotilla daily, and that he has bought several American ships. " French Funds, 67f. PROCLAMATION OF THE CAPT.- GENERAL OF CATALONIA. " A horrible conspiracy, which appears lo have been formed by individuals of different classes, and in which are implicated, Generals Lacy and Milan, who had tendered signal ser- vices to the country, was to be executed on the 5lh al night. The object of the conspirators was lo overthrow the Government, to restore the abolished Government, and to deprive me of the authority entrusted to me by the King.— But Ihe energetic measures I adopted the mo- ment, by ihe particular favour of Providence, I had the first news of the conspiracy, have de- feated ihe vain projects of the seditious. Pur- sued on all sides, the greater part of those whom public notoriety designates as guilty have been taken up. I have the consolation to see the inhabitants of Barcelona and of all the Pro- vinces, not only reject all adherence to the treason, but testify a just indignation against the traitors. The troops have been equally faithful, two companies alone of a battalion having been seduced by ihe second in command, Don Joseph Quer. The public tranquillity has not been disturbed tor a moment. There is no longer any subject of alarm, and the conspirators will undergo the punishment directed by the law. " Barcelona, ApriU2." " XAVIER CASTANOS." Monday's Paris Paper's have also arrived. One of them announces the arrest of a cousin of Buonaparte, who has undergone several in- terrogatories. The following are extracts:— ** Paris, April C. 8.— M. Olville, a cousin of Buonaparte, employed in a glass- manufactory, has been arrested and conveyed to the Prefec- ture; he has undergone several interrogatories. " A Courier arrived the morning before yes- terday, who is said lo belong to the Household of the Princess of Wales. Her Royal Highness is expected immediately. *' His Majesty, whose health is perfectly re- established, heard mass yesterday in the chapel of the Tuileries. On returning to his apart- ments, Ihe King shewed himself, surrounded by his family, to the immense crowd who had as- sembled under the windows of the Gallery, to obtain, by means of their own eyes, the assu- rance of ihe perfect re- establishment of his Ma- jesty's health, and lo express their joy. Letters from Appenzel of the 10th instant, state, that on the preceding evening a shock ol' an earthquake was felt there, which was pre- ceded by an extremely violent tempest, accom- panied bv thunder and lightning, and followed by a heavy snow. " Berlin, April 15.— The Grand Duke Ni- cholas arrived here this morning. M. D'Alopeus, the Russian Minister, gives a grand ball in ho- nour of the Prince on the 20th, at which the Royal Family will be present. The contract of marriage between his Imperial Highness and the Princess Charlotte is prepared. It is thought that the Grand Duke will only stop here a short time. " Vienna, April 10.— A Portuguese Courier has brought intelligence that the Court of Rio Janeiro has sent to Leghorn the persons destined to form the Court ofthe Archduchess Leopoldine. " Letters from Upper Austria speak of a sect which has been formed there, called Petziliens, from its founder Petzel, priest of Brannau. Abo- minable things are related of this sect. It is stated, thai like the Spenceans in England, they preach equality and community of property, and that horrible to relate, they sacrifice human be- ings. It is added, that this sect sacrificed in the the course of the holy week several men, who expired in dreadful torments. A girl 13 years of age was killed in the village of Affelwang on Good Friday, and 7 men have fallen victims to Ibis abominable superstition. Petzel, the foun der of the sect, and 86 of the sectarians, have been arrested." ~ 7- AMERICA. LATEST AND INTEREST1NG FROM CANTON. Boston, March G.— The ship Canton, Hinck- ley, 105 days from Canton, for Boston, arrived in Holmes Hole on Monday last. Bryant P. Tilden, Esq. a passenger arrived in town last night, and informs that the Emperor of China would not receive the British Ambassador, and had refused to accept the presents sent him by the Prince Regent. The Ambassador was ex- pected to arrive at Canton, from Pekin, by land, about the 25th November. The frigate which carried the Embassy to the Yellow Sea had re- turned to Canton ; and on the night of the 13th of November forced her way by the Chinese forts and guard boats at Chumpee and Boca Tigris, in doing which she fired upon and sunk two men of war jonks, and then anchored in the river, below the second bar. The Hong merchants were ordered down to her. ; but as the Canton sailed before their return, the result of the con- ference was not ascertained. On the 17th the Canton passed the frigate ; a great number of men of war jonks were about her. The pilot of the Canton was ordered on board of them ( not the regular guard jonks).- and on his return he informed that all business with foreigners was stopped for the present. The Company ships were not half loaded. On passing Chumpee Mr. T. saw an encampment of Chinese soldiers. — ( Cork Chronicle, 25th ult.) Charleston Papers to the 26th of March have been received. ( From the Charleston City Gazette of the 26th March.) " Kingston, ( Jamaica), March - t.— Doctor Antonio Ramon, now in this city, one of the four passengers in an English sloop from Cuba, bound to Falmouth, but was taken on the 2d of November last by the felucca, so well known for blockading this port, and cruising about the Island, states, we are informed, that the vessel that he was on board of being taken by that felucca, called the Revancha, Nicholas Ross master, and amongst others, Samuel Bucknor and Edward Parnall, she was ransomed to her owner, Mr. Young, for a Bill of Exchange on some person in Kingston ; and that on the day after she was taken, three Spaniards passengers belonging to Puerto Principi, Trinidad, and St. Jago de Cuba, were deliberately shot on board the felucca, because they were Spaniards, and his own life was spared that he might be useful in his professional Capacity.— On the same day the 3d November, the felucca captured an Eng- lish sloop called the Maria, belonging to Mon tego Bay, took a bill for three thousand five hundred dollars, on the payment of which being received, the sloop was to be ransomed. A canoe was sent on shore at Montego Bay with a Spanish negro, to deliver a letter from the Captain of the Maria to his owners on the sub- ject of his ransom ; but Ihe same afternoon a vessel going out from that port in chace of the felucca, no answer was received: four days after the Captain was landed at Bluefolds, with threats of vengeance against him if the bill he drew was not paid, though the sloop continued a prize. The same felucca, going under various names, it is said, was met on the east end or some other part of the Island." The ship Agnes, which arrived at Liverpool from the Rio Plate, with advices to the 5th Feb. brings us important intelligence as to facts, w ith but little elucidation of views or motives. The Portuguese took quiet and unobstructed posses- sion of Monte Video on the 20th of January. The city had been previously placed in a state of defence, which seemed to indicate a disposi- tion to resistance; but whether some only, and those but temporarily, were animated with this spirit, ot v. hether the mere display of hostile preparations was all that was generally intended, we know not: the approach and entry of the Portuguese, were not for a moment obstructed. The Portuguese army had been previously sepa- rated into three divisions, of which Ihe right was stationed at Maldona, the left in what are called the Portuguese Missiones, and the centre at St. Lucia. Of these the last only had met with any opposition, and is said to have lost about 150 men in the action. Of the feelings of the Spanish Government on these occurrences we are ignorant; but it seems that two negatives in politics do not always make an affirmative: for though Monte Video was first disloyal to Old Spain, along with Buenos Ayres, and has since been disloyal to Buenos Ayres itself, it has not on I hat account resumed its at- tachment to the parent Slate. The Court of Madrid, therefore, may not care much, even supposing there were no secret understanding with that of Brazil, that a dependency, w hich itself has ceased to influence, should for a w hile belong to a kindred Power. The first acts of ihe new possessions were natural; and their professions, if faithfully accomplished, com- mendable. They published a Proclamation, promising security of person and property to the inhabitants, inviting them not to quit the town, and engaging thai none should be questioned for their political opinions or conduct; and ( which is a clause in the Proclamation of more extensive consequences than may at first appear) throwing open the port of Monte Video to all foreign nations in amity with Portugal, at the same im- port duties as subsist at the Brazils. The ef- fects of this last measure are considered as likely lo be most injurious to the prosperity of Buenos Ayres, where the import duties are exorbitant. It Was but a short time before ihe invasion of Monte Video, that an American ship from Bar- celona, and a French brig from Havre, having reached Buenos Ayres with cargoes, were de- sirous of departing without breaking bulk, on account of the amount of the duties; but this they were prohibited from doing till they had paid an ad valorem duty of five percent, for their er trance into the harbour. These heavy impo- sitions induced the trading community to view the capture of Montevideo bj the Portuguese with less regret. Artigas is said lo be pursuing his usual policy, of threatening or making incur- sions into the Portuguese territories; but his measures, in lire way of diversion, seeined to have failed of success. He was said to be at Ilervidera when the last accounts came away. The Frankfort Gazette has been authorized to state that the Ex- King of Sweden, Gustavus Adolphus, had no knowledge whatever of the conspiracy in Sweden. AGRICULTURE. MONTHLY REPORT FOR APRIL. The last month and the early part ofthe present have been particularly favourable, as a seed season, foi the various crops ; llie cold and drought, however, succeed- ing, have retarded the business upon binding clays— the cultivators of which are waiting for warm showers, with tlie assistance of which the sowing of spring corn would be speedily and happily completed. Of the ap- pearance of the Wheat generally, the reports are far from favourable; those sown at the regular autumnal season are said to wear the worst aspect, being thinly planted, yellow, and sickly; greatly injured by the wire- woim and slug, to such a degree, in some parts, that the, remains have been ploughed up, and ttie land re- sown with Barley. On light and sandy soils, where Wheat has been risked, the roots have been laid bare, and great part of the plants destroyed, by the cold and driving winds. Wheat on fallow has universally succeeded best, as must ever be the casein mild winters; the roots an ! foul filth of clover leys and bean etchcs forming a most prolific hot- bed for vermin of every description. The present breadth of Wheat is said to be greater than in any former year, with respect to Spring Wheat, such is unquestionable the case. The spring sown autumnal Wheats look a^ favourably as can be expected in so cold and droughty a season, and want nothing but warmth and showers ; the same may be said of spring com and pulse.— Hops exhibit a strong and healthy bine ; in warm situations, quite luxuriant. It wus sup- posed some weeks since that : the youug shoots or- ten- drils of the hop plant were injured by the slug— an un- common occurrence.— The fruit- trcesand garden; have sustained considerable damage from the cold winds and - severe nights. Turnips have failed some time since, the Swedish excepted, of which a sufficient quantity is not cultivated. LONDON FASHIONS FOR MAY'. ENGLISH MORXING DRESS.— High round dress of Mexican blue reps silk, elegantly ornamented with rich white silk Peruvian trimmings. Leghorn bonnet, tied with a primrose silk handkerchief, with a bow on the right side; treble Spanish ruff. The hair arranged in the Grecian style. White short sash of paduasoy riband tied in front. Mexican blue kid slippers, and Limerick gloves. FRENCH EVENING DRESS— Round dress oftulleovcr pale pink satin; the tulle dress finished round the bor- der by a flounce of blond of a rich and elegant pattern, the flounce surmounted by a corkscrew rouleau of pink satin; the waist confined by a narrow belt of the same material. A falling tucker of blond, and very short sleeves finished with a double quilling of the same, com- plete this simple and elegant costume. Necklace of Oriental pearl, with pear pearls setat equal distances. The hair arranged ti- la- Caroline, interwoven and orna- mented with pearls. Ear- rings, each of one pear pearl. A bouquet of full- blown roses on the right side of the bust. White satin slippers and white kid gloves ; pearl bracelets worn over the gloves.— f La Belle Assemblie.) EVENING DRESS.— A white lace dress over a blush- coloured satin slip. The dress is disposed round the bottom of the skirt in festoons which display a little of the slip ; each festoon is ornamented with a bouquet of blue bells, pinks, and rose- buds. The festoons arc sur- mounted by a rolio of intermingled pink and white satin. The sleeve is very short and full; it is finished at the bottom by quillings of blond. MORNING DRESS.— A round dress composed of cam- bric muslin ; the skirt trimmed with a lemon- coloured satin, a broad fold of which is placed byas round the edge of the skirt, over which there are three narrow bands, also byas. The body is made full, and is orna- mented at the throat with puffings of muslin. A loose robe, which is open in front, and descends from each shoulder, where it is fastened, to the feet, is worn over this dress: it is trimmed round wiili rich pointed work and a double row of satin to correspond with the skirt.—( Ackermann's Repository. It is currently reported, that a dispatch from our Foreign- office to the Ottoman Porte, which was entrusted to a Foreign Messenger to be conveyed, was broken open and read by corrupt means. This is an outrage of so flagrant a nature, that we trust it will not be suffered to pass over without Ihe most rigorous investigation and complaint to the Government, whose agents have committed the insult. Horrid Murder.— On Saturday afternoon, so early as from three to four o'clock, some villains entered the dwelling- house of Mr. T. Littlewood, of Pendleton, near Manchester, by the back door, ( as circumstances seem to prove) which they fastened, and, in all probability, meeting with resistance to their horrid designs from two servant women, inhumanly murdered them both, evidently with an iron cleaver, which was found with the stains of blood upon it. They then effected the robbery and escapcd out of the front door, which they locked, and carried away the key. About eight o'clock in the evening, a person wishing to enter the house found the doors all fastened, and an entrance being forced, the poor women were discovered weltering in blood and both dead. Such a day- light murder, perpetrated in so public a situa- lion, has necessarily created sensations of horror w hich are not easily described. The articles stolen we hope will lead ! o the discovery of the atrocious monsters. Several persons, strongly inspected are already taken up ; upon one of whom, among other articles, was found some Bank of England notes, which being marked in various ways, may probably be recollected by persons who have paid them to Mr. Littlewood. Inquest.— On Tuesday an Inquest was held at Mr. Warburton's Receptacle for Lunatics, on Bethnal- green, on the body of J. Deshayes, a keeper, who was murdered by Owen Anderson, an insane patient. The circumstances attend- ing this fatal affair are as follow :— About half- past one o'clock on Friday last Mr. Anderson ( who had been placed in the Establishment in the year 1815, and had remained there ever since), with several other patients, had just dined: one of the two keepers who attended upon them quitted the room for some domestic purpose ; the knives and forks which had been used at dinner, were placed iu a knife- tray on one of the forms. J. Deshayes, ihe unfortunate deceased, happened to go to a closet near the fire- place, in which coals were kept, and stooping down to fill the coal- scuttle, the unhappy gen- tleman, Mr. Anderson, seized a case knife, and plunged it in the keeper's back. He rose up immediately, and received another desperate stab in the lower part of the belly. No persons were in the room at the time, but the deceased, Mr. Anderson, and the other patients. The keeper lingered until next night, when he ex- pired. The insanity of Anderson was clearly proved by several witnesses ; but several of the Jury having expressed a wish to put some ques- tions to him, he was brought into the Inquest- room. He is a young man of interesting ap- pearance, about 23 years of age. He said " that he could not recollect now why he had so con ducted himself to the keeper; that he was more composed than he had been : and he would not do so any more." The Jury returned their verdict—" That the deceased had died by the violent act of Owen Anderson ; but that at the time of committing such act, the said Owen Anderson was not of sound mind, memory, and. understanding, but lunatic and distressed. APPREHENSION FOR HIGH TREASON. By the exertions of the Home Department, Arthur Thistlewood, for whose apprehension a large reward has been offered, was apprehended on Sunday night, attempting lo leave the country tor America. He was carried before Lord Sid- mouth, Sir N. Conant, & c. on Monday night, at the Office for the Home Department, and, after an examination, which lasted from 9 until 12 o'clock, fully committed for trial, on a charge ol high treason. He was conveyed to Tothil- fields for the- night, but was removed to the Tower in the course of Tuesday. He appeared very much dejected during his examination. With respect to his particular share or concern in proceedings of a treasonable nature, it may be recollected that he is the person who has been represented as having ordered the pikes, and as otherwise being a leading character in the out- rages which disgraced the metropolis. He is understood to be the third man who was with the two Watson's at Highgate, when the elder Watson was apprehended by Miel, the Horse- patrole.— It appears that a passage had been ta- ken for him, his wife, and son, on board the the British ship Perseus, Capt. Richardson.— This vessel had cleared out for St. John's and New Brunswick : but an assurance was given by a Mr. Fitzgerald, the person who chartered her, that the above- mentioned parties should be taken to New York. Mrs. Thistlewood ( said to be a very interesting woman, with her son, 10 years of age), went on board, under the name of Wilkinson; and was required, along with the rest of the passengers, to the number of 153, to appear before the Inspector of Aliens on board tile Flamer brig, off Gravesend ( of which the Inspector is also the Commander), in order, as well as to comply w ith the Alien regulations, as to have it ascertained that the 57th Geo. III. cap. 10, for regulating the conveyance of pas- sengers iu certain cases, was obeyed. The Alien Department had already been led to harbour a suspicion that Thistlewood would attempt to escape by this vessel, and the Chief Clerk, attended by oneof the Messengers of the Department, had for some time been acting up- on this suspicion, and both were in the town ot Gravesend at the time when Thistlewood was taken on board the Flamer by the Commander of that vessel, who had an Officer in readiness with Lord Sidmouth's warrant. The prisoner, it appears, being aware of the examination to which lie would have been subjected along with the other passengers, by the Alien Department, had avoided going on board the Perseus, but went directly on board the Plainer with his three friends, who were detained with him, and still remain iu custody. Old Bailey.— Wednesday the Sessions con eluded at the Old Bailey when the Recorder passed sentence of death upon 11 prisoners, viz: John Biron, for robbing Mr. M. Garel on the King's highway; John Hawkins, for stealing goods in a barge upon ti e Thames ; George Yates, James Gregory, and Henry Rous, for burglary; James Welch, William Raines, and Ann Davis, for stealing goods in a dwelling- house ; Daniel Kelly and Timothy Geary, for highway robberies; and James Warren, for rob bing his master, Mr. Earnshaw, of Holborn. Seven were transported for life ; nine for 14 years; fifty- three for seven years. Eighty- four were sentenced to be imprisoned — some for two years, and others for a shorter term.— Two were fined Is. each, and discharged.— One was ordered to be. whipped, and discharged. Humorous Trial.— At the Quarter Sessions for Liverpool, Patrick Fitzsimmous was tried on Wednesday se'nnight for stealing a watchman's great coat, when it was proved the prisoner had on the night of the 6th ult. broken open a watch- man's box, and taken away the coat which was found upon him about an hour afterwards.— The prisoner, who, as his name imports, is a native of the sister kingdom, being called upon for his defence, placed himself in an oratorical position, and said, " May it plase your honors, I am ac- cused of breaking into a watchman's box and stealing away his coat, but I am perfectly inno- cent, and I'll tell you just how it happened : I had been out drinking on the night they men- tion, and I had to be sure, got mortally drunk : that I know is very, wrong. About two o'clock in the morning, as I was going staggering home, I asked this here watchman " Can you tell me where I can get a lodging, or where I can get something to drink ?" " No," said he, " all the houses are shut up now, but in an hour and a half there will be a house open, where they sell capital purl, so step into my watch- box, slip on my great coat, and make yourself asy while I go my rounds, and when I come back we'll see what can be done." I did as he bid me, he locked the door, and iu a moment I was asleep. Soon after I waked, and finding myself boxed Ki le 011 the lea in of up iii this narrow cell, I could not dream where I was; so setting my foot against the door, I burst open the box, and walked out, quite for- getting that I had on the watchman's coat. On my way tip ' he street I met two other watchmen, and asked them " Could I get any thing to drink ?" They told me there was a house hard by where they sold rum at 6d. a glass. I said ( saving your honor's presence) that was devilish dear; but I went in, and they went with me. When the reckoning came to be paid, I hap- pened to have no money ; so one of the watch- men said to me, " How came you, Pat, by that great coat ?" I said " Sure, and it is my own ;" not meaning to steal it ; but intending only to keep myself warm with it till il was day- light. My companions, however, hauled me away to bridewell; and this plase your honours, is the whole truth. Is it likely that a man that has been sixteen years in Liverpool, should be so foolish as to break open a watch- box ! Did not I know that there is generally in these places nothing but a broom and a shovel! And how could I tell that the watchman himself was not in his box ?" This defence was delivered w ith great fluency and animation ; and the Recorder in addressing the Jury, said, that though this was the best speech he had heard for the last six months, yet he feared, that if they acquitted the prisoner, it must be rather for his ingenuity than for his innocence. After a short delibera- tion, the Jury returned a verdict of guilty ; and the Court sentenced Fitzsimmons to. 14 days imprisonment. LAW INTELLIGENCE. COURT OF KING'S BENCH, April 28. HIGH TREASON. Mr. Justice Bayley, on entering ihe Court, - pro- ceeded to deliver a charge to the Grand Jury, who were in attendance. The Learned Judge adverted to the bills of indictment which would be laid before the Gland Jury, charging the crime ot high treason against certain individuals therein named. In finding the bill, the different oveit acts which it comprised would re! quire the most serious investigation. There would be many considerations applicable to each charge— in tlie investigation of which they must be satisfied that each allegation was fairly made out, before tliev assented to it. It was not necessary that every overt act in the indictment should be proved; but, if one or more were, proved, that would be sufficient to authorize them to find the bill. They would proceed deliberately through all the overt acts; and if they found all of them sub- stantiated by evidence, they would, of course, return a true bill, with the whole of the overt acts found; but it" it should turn out that some of them were not proved, then it would be proper to strike out from the bill such averments as were not duly supported bv evidence Properly speaking, all the overt acts must amount to" what in law, was denominated levying war against the King. If certain acts were done for the purpose of vying war, it would be their duty to find a true bill I those overt acts. As they were the Grand Jurv for 10 county of Middlesex, it was necessary that one, at ast, of these overt acts should have been committed i that county— and if they were satisfied that any ooe I them was committed in Middlesex, whether the others had been effected in London or in any other county, they would still find the bill. In charges of high treason, it was necessary to have the facts proved by two witnesses— but, if two overtacts were charged in one count, a single witness in support of each cha% e ould be sufficient. If they should be satisfied, from the general nature of the evidence, that the allegation ofthe existence of treasonable practices was made out it would then become their duty to consider the dif- ferent charges, as tliejjapplied to the persons who were the subject of the indictment. In cases of felony there were accessaries before the fact, as well as prin- cipals but with respect to treason, the ease was dif- ferent. In cases of treason, there could, in law, be no accessaries before the fact. Those who, in felonious cases, would be only accessaries, were, in treason, con- sidered principals. If previous concertand conspiracy wete proved, having treasonable objects in view, that was sufficient; for every consultation of a treasonable nature was looked upon, in law, as an overt act. The learned Judge said, he offered these, suggestions to the Grand Jury, because they might be material in direct* ing their judgment, and not with any intention of in- fluencing their passions. He was desirous of instruct- ing them, as to what was their duty in the discharge of their important functions, and not of leading or direct- ing their minds to any decision. It w as most important, if treason bad existed, that it should be developed, and that the persons concerned in it should be brought to trial. At this time the charge was of the highest an J most serious nature; and, therefore, the Grand Jury should proceed with the utmost circumspection. They ought not, and doubtless they would not, return a true bill against those persons, unless the evidence fnllv satisfied them, that they had been guilty of sonie or all of the charges alleged against them. The Learned Judge concluded by stating, that he and his brother Judges wi utd be ready, when called on, to afford everv information to the Grand Jury in the execution of their solemn and important duty.— The Grand Jury then retired. APRIL 29.—. Inst as the Court was about to rise, the Foreman of the Grand Jury, accompanied by his fel- lows, delivered in their presentment, On which it was stated that they found true bills against Arthur Thistle- wood, James Watson the elder, James Watson the younger, Thomas Preston, and John Hooper, for High. Treason. The bill against John Keens was not found. As soon as the names had been read, the Attorney- General addressed the Court as follows :— In conse- quence of the bills of indictment now returned by the Grand Jury, it becomes mv duty to move jour Lord-' ships that the Sheriff of the county of Westminster lie directed to furnish Mr. Litchfield, as solicitor for the prosecution, with a list of the proper number of per- sons capable of serving on the Jury, that copies of that list maybe delivered to each ofthe persons against whom bills of indictment have been found. The Court then made an order accordingly. The ATTORNEY- GENERAL— I can have NO wish, but in common with your Lordships, that justice shall be satisfactorily administered; and I thought, therefore, that the earliest moment when 1 could communicate with the Court upon the subject was the fittest moment. I should request that your Lordship will have the goodness to fix as early as possible in the next term for commencing proceedings. Before I sit down, it may be fit to intimate that in the course of the term, I shall apply to the Court that the parties accused may- be arraigned, which will be one step gained this term"; but to proceed to the trial, is, I am sure, impossible. Lord ELLENBOROUGH.— From what you state, Mr. Attorney- General, the Court understand that the trial cannot be practicably concluded iu the present term ; the Court w ill therefore consider what day in the next term will be convenient foreatering upon this business. The ATTORNEY- GENERAL.— Of that your Lordship will probably inform us after consideration : at present 1 believe it is not necessary to trouble the Court: for the sake of the prisoners I deemed it my duty to men- tion the subject without delay. Lord ELLENBOROUGH.— The first day of trial would certainly be occupied in the way you have stated, and at what time the business could be terminated must of course be uncertain. Their Lordships then consulted together for a few seconds, after which Lord ELLENBOROUGH added— Without pledging our- selves not to alter our determination, it would do no harm that the Court should intimate that they have it in contemplation to fix the first Monday in the next term. Such motions for new trials as may be to be made may come on on the Friday and Saturday pre- vious, so that the business may be proceeded in 011 the third day of the term.— The Grand Jury then with- drew, and the Court adjourned. THURSDAY, MAY 1.— Mr. Jervis moved for a Writ of Habeas Corpus, to be directed to the Gaoler of Wor- cester, commanding him lo bring up the body of a per- son named Stephen Adam ( who was committed to that Gaol upon a warrant, dated 20th April, for shooting, at and wounding a man named James White), in order to be admitted to bail. The warrant did not charge the offence to have been committed feloniously or malici- ously, The circumstances of the case were these— The prisoner was a traveller to a house in London, carrying 011 the business of silversmiths, and 011 the 12th Aprii the prisoner put up at the Woolpack Inn, Worcester, and the ostler, James White, coming up to take charge ol'his horse, the prisoner took out of his gig a three bar- relled pistol, and addressing him, said " Young man, are you tired of your life." The ostler replied in the negative, when the prisoner presenting the pistol at' him, snapt it, and the weapon being loaded with two balls, it went off, and the. contents lodged in the unfor- tunate man's body. The prisoner apparently horror struck at what had happened, immediately exclaimed, " Good God I what have I done— I did not believe the pistol was loaded." An affidavit was now adduced 011 the part of the prisoner, representing, that, in consequence of having occasion very frequently to carry with him a quantity of valuable articles of plate, he had provided himself with a pistol for protection, with which . lie usually travelled. A friend of his at Hereford, having admired his pistol, had requested lijm to purchase its fellow, which he had accord- ingly done, and placed it with the loaded one in his gig, intending to carry it to its destination. The misfortune which had happened to the ostler, arose from his taking up tilv loaded pistol by mistake instead of the other, and he alleged that the calamity which had hap- pened was purely accidental, and certainly quite unin- tentional: Another affidavit'was put in from a surgeon stating, that the unfortunate man was now quite out of danger. Beside which was an affidavit of the man himself, expressing his belief that the conduct of the . prisoner , was quite unintentional, . The Court, under these circumstances, directed the . writ to issue. LONDON, FRIDAY, MAY 2, 1817. Friday morning Mails from Holland, Ham- burgh, and Brussels arrived. The Crown Prince of Sweden seems to be proceeding in that strange system which, purporting to be for the relief of trade, must inevitably lead to its injury, if not ruin. To the other articles prohibited is to be added the importation of coffee, because it amounts to nearly half the value of the Swedish iron exported. Suppose it did ! Swedish iron paid for it, and its exportation was promoted and encouraged.:— Besides a duty was paid upon the coffee imported, which produced a large revenue to the State. All this, however, is to be given up. .. The State will be a loser, and the importation of coffee will take place as usual, though to the sole profit ot the smuggler. Look at the immense line of Swedish and Norwegian coast, and see if smuggling is likely to be pre- vented. Is the Crown Prince so wholly igno- rant as to think that the export trade of Sweden can be rendered flourishing by tbe discourage- ment of the import trade, if the articles of other countries are forbidden to be imported into Sweden, may not foreign countries, if they do not chuse to prohibit the importation of Swedish articles, subject them to higher duties? Whilst these commercial or anti commercial measures are agitating the minds of Ihe mer- cantile class in Sweden, the late plot, and the steps taken iii consequence of it, are occupying and agitating the minds of all classes. An article from Brussels of the 30th ult. says, " The last accounts from the North announce the arrival of several regiments in the neighbourhood of Stockholm, and the arrest of two officers im- plicated in the plot against the person of the Prince Royal. For the rest, great tranquillity prevails in Sweden; but yet peoples' minds are much agitated." The same article from Brussels says, that '-' according to the last news from Spain, the number of persons arrested in consequence of ihe conspiracy at Barcelona, is more consider- able than is stated by the Gazette of Madrid. Some persons have been arrested also at Va- lencia. It is pretended that the " Liberales, exiled to Fermentara, a little desert island in the Mediterranean, had found means to cor- respond with their partisans on the coasts of the kingdoms of Valencia and Catalonia, and that in consequence of this they have been removed from it, to be Conveyed to another place, the name of which is not vet mentioned." IMPERIAL, PARLIAMENT. A letter from Algiers, dated February 19, says—" The activity of the Dey has now with- in half a year, wholly remedied the consequen- ces of one of the bloodiest battles which the shores of Africa have witnessed for many cen- turies. It is thought that the intention was to destroy Algiers : this, however, did not happen. The loss consisted in the largest part of the pirate fleet; but the arsenals, the magazines and workshops, the stores of ammunition and provisions— in short, all the elements of poli- tical life, were saved. The damaged fortifica- tions are now stronger than before ; and the marine, by means of purchases and new- built • vessels, may be said to be daily increasing. The abolition of slavery seems to have been the chief object of the expedition: but either as slave, or prisoner of war, the Christian who has the misfortune to fall into the hands of these barbarians will be treated exactly in the sainc manner. The Algerines do not trouble them- selves about this difference, if they can only make war upon 1 lie European Nations at their pleasure, and enrich their State with the sums extorted from them, or with the value of the ships captured from them. The whole of the marine of this place is, however, at present dis- mantled, except the schooner which was sent, soon after the bombardment, with an Ambassa- dor, and rich presents, to Constantinople, and is not yet come back ; and, according to all ap- pearance, no new piratical expedition will be undertaken before an answer conies from Con- stantinople. Since the monopoly of the trade and coral fishery at Bona, which was farmed to the English from 1800 for 50,000 hard piastres, has ceased; it has been offered to France and Naples. Frauce, which had possessed the pri- vilege from the beginning of the 17th century, is said to be not disinclined to take it again on the old terms— that is, about 18,000 hard piastres ; but the Dey demands as much as he received from the English, and the affair is still undecid- ed. Meantime, and notwithstanding the last harvest was most excellent, and there is abun- dance of corn in the country, tiie Dey will not allow any to be exported to Europe, though pretty high prices have been offered him, par- ticularly by France. Probably he wishes to see the affair of the Bona Fishery terminated, before lie allows any purchase of corn iu the country." Execution.— Friday morning was executed at the front of the Debtors' Door Newgate, the well- known Patrick Ryan, better known by the name of " Paddy Brown," for highway robbery. Brown had attempted an escape from Newgale. He had his irons actually sawed off", a rape had been made fast to the cheveaux- de- frize of the wall of the prison ad joining New gate- street, and nothing was wanting to complete the escape but another rope for the purpose of ascent and de- scent. With this the wife of Brown was entering' the prison some Sundays since, when the plot was discovered, the woman apprehended, and the custody of Brown and his companions made more secure. Brown, since the arrival of his death- warrant, evinced every symptom of peni- tence aud resignation, fully acknowledging the justice of his sentence. A few minutes after eight o'clock he was launched into eternity, iu the presence of fewer spectators than perhaps has been before witnessed on any former occasion. To render this case somewhat more peculiar, the wife of Brown was the same day to take her trial at the Sessions Guildhall, for assisting in the escape which he had lately meditated from New- gate. It was however supposed that the Court would consider her as being influenced in this conduct, and that she would either be acquitted generally, or under the peculiar circumstances of the case, if convicted, be. slightly punished. HOUSE OF COMMONS, MONDAY, April 38,1917. Mr. Grattan. postponed his Motion on the Catholic Question from Tuesday the ( 5th till Friday the 9th of .' May. Mr. Ponsonby moved tho. second reading of the Civil and Military Offices Continuation Hill. The Bill, after some remarks by Lord Castlereagh, was read a second time, and, on the suggestion of Mr. Ponsonby, was ordered to he committed on Thursday se'nnight. The Catholic Petition was brought up by Sir H. Par- nell, and after some observations, read, and ordered to lie on the table. DISTRESSES AT BIRMINGHAM. Mr. Brougham observed, that he had often been a channel for conveying the complaints of large bodies of subjects to that House. He now felt the pressure of this duty more than ever he had done, because he held in his hand a petition, which was signed by nearly the whole population of the great town of Birmingham, and gave a detail of the most shocking distresses. Without any public notice having been given, this petition received ten thousand signatures in the space of a few hours. In a few days after more than 12,000 names wer » put to it. All these were inhabitants of Birmingham only, and care was taken, that none but adults should sign the petition These names might altogether be considered as representing a population of near 70,000 individuals. They described themselves as suffering under a degree of misery almost approach- ing to despair. The average assessment of the Poor- rates for the last twelve months was nine shillings in the pound ; the average for tbe last six months twelve shillings, and the average for the last two or three weeks was fourteen shillings and fourpence. There was an excess of ,£ 400 a- week in poor- rates, above the ability of the people to pay the same. This statement alone would be sufficient to point out the vanity of supposing that the. poor of the country could be relieved by the issue of a million and a half of Exchequer Bills. A sum of near half a million a year would be wanted for the town of Birmingham alone. He w ished therefore to have it explained to him what benefit could the poor of Birmingham derive from the portion of the million and a half thatwas likely to fall to their share. Indeed nothing but some great, permanent and salutary mea- sure could have any effect in relieving the nation from its distresses, ' t he petition was then brought up, read, and ordered to lie on the table. RELIEF OF THE POOR. The House went into a Committee on the issue of Exchequer Bills for the Relief of the Poor. The Chancellor of the Exchequer said, lie had two Re- solutions : oue, that his Majesty be enabled to issue one million and a half of Exchequer Bills, to be vested in Commissioners, and by them issued to corporate bodies and parishes, towards the completion of works of a public nature, on due security being given. Another Resolution was for a similar grant of .£ 250,000. to Ire- land, for the completion of public works, but not to be advanced to parishes in that country. It would be found much better to afford relief by employing the poor in public works, than by grants to the agricul- tural ormercantileinterests.— The Commissioners would have under their special consideration the inllucncc which the work would have in rclievingthoSe who should be employed ill completing it. It wasgenerally known that many canals, improvements of harbours, & c. which had received the sanction of Parliament, were in a state of stagnation for wantuf money to carry themou. The sums to be issued would be vested in Commissioners unconnected with Government, but appointed by Par- liament in the body of the Act, and acting on their own responsibility. It might be thought advisable to con- fine these grants to works which had received the sanc- tion of Parliament, such as the fisheries. He trusted that it would prove on this occasion, that the relief afforded to the poor in this way would be effected with- out any loss to the country ; for the expence of Com- missioners would be defrayed out of the interest of the money advanced. As to Ireland, the only difference would be, that these grants would not be advanced for parochial- works. It would be impossible to make any grant sufficient to relieve the general agricultural dis- tress, without adding a still further temptation to the poor to seek parochial relief. No part of this measure was intended to apply to agricultural relief. It was in- tended that the grants made should amount to only half the sum raised by the pool - rates in the course of the last year. The House must feel the lamentable situa- tion of the manufacturing towns; but lie trusted it was only temporary, and that, if they could be supported for a few months, trade might revive. No one who considered the large porportion of arms which was ma. nufactured for lis and our Allies at Birmingham could be surprised at the sudden loss of their trade on the sudden cessation of the war. Besides what was made for our own fleets and armies, we furnished three mil- lions of stand of arms a- year for the allies. He entered intoacomparativestatementto shew the great decrease of the demand for small arms by Government; from which he inferred, that the distress of Birmingham did not proceed from a general depression of trade; and that a grant of ,£ 40,1100. would assist them till trade should tin u into new channels. He h id thought it bet- ter to frame his Resolution generally, applying to all classes which may require relief, rather than to frame a specific Resolution lor the relief of the manufacturing interests alone. At present he should only submit his Resolutions to the House, and ilien move that they be taken into consideration some day next week, as, no doubt, the subject would require much revision. He then moved tluit his Majesty should be enabled lo issue a million and a half of Exchequer Bills for the relief of the poor of Great Britain. Mr. Ponsonby, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Mr. Blake, Mr. Phillips, Mr. Greenfel, Lord A. Ha- milton, Mr. Lambe, Lord Cochrane, Lord Milton, Sir E, Brydges, Sir J. Newport, severally spoke in ex- planation, some further remarks then ensued by Mr. Babington, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Mr. Hall, Mr. Lyttelton, Mr. C. Grant, Sir M. W. Ridley, and Mr. Brougham, when, after a few words from Mr. But- terwortli, the first Resolution was agreed to. On the reading of the Second, for granting It250,000. for the elief of Ireland. Sir F. Flood expressed his surprise at the short mea- sure afforded to Ireland, whose merits wvre almost su- perior to those of any other part of his Majesty's domi- nions. He hoped the Right Hon. Gentleman would re- consider that part of his Resolution, and add a few thousands to the sum which it contained. The Resolution was then agreed to: the House re sumed, aud the Report was ordered to be received to- morrow. The Report ofthe Committee of \ lays and Means was received and agreed to, and Bills, ordered accordingly — Adjourned. TUESDAY. Mr. H. Addington brought up an account of the num- ber of persons confined in the jails of England and Wales for offences under the Game Laws.— Ordered to be laid on tbe table. On the motion of Sir E. Knatchbull, the Report of the Game Preservation Bill was taken into considera- tion. The amendments were agreed to, and the Bill ordered to be read a third time on Monday. Mr. Lushington moved the second readiug of the Salt Duty Bill. Sir C. Pole said, that from every consideration he had ive the subject, he was still farther con Some further discussion then took place, when the Chancellor of the Exclwq. hoped the Bill would be- allowed to go through the second reading; and then it could be submitted to a Committee up- stairs, If it were not approved, the Government had nothing to do with it except as it considered it necessary for the advantage of the country. The Amendment was then withdrawn by Sir C. Pole, and the Bill read a second time, and ordered to be com- mitted on Monday se'nnight. THIRD SECRETARY OF STATE. Mr. Tierney, after a long speech, moved " That a Committee be appointed to inquire, how far the busi- ness of the Third Secretary of State could be trans- ferred to the Office of the Home Secretary. Mr. Goulburn opposed the motion. A short debate then followed, which terminated in the following division:— For the Motion 87— Against it 190 — Majority against the Motion. 103. Sir M. W. Ridley moved for a copy of the Petition presented to the Magistrates of London, in Sessions, by the London Academic Society, on the 18th of April, to- gether with any order made thereon.— Agreed to. The Report of the Committee of Supply was brought iip ; the Resolution for granting £\, 500,000. in Exche- quer Bills, for the relief of the industrious poor, was agreed to, and a Bill ordered accordingly.— Adjourned. WEDNESDAY Col Wood gave notice that he should move, on Wed- nesday next, the second readiug df the Bill to legalize the sale of game. Mr. Shaw Lefevre presented a Petition from Reading, in favour of some measure for the better regulation of stage- coaches, and securing the lives of his Majesty's subjects.— Ordered to lie on the table. Mr. Lambton presented a Petition from the Parish Officers of Sunderland, praying for some alteration in the Poor Laws, and stating, that ofa population not ex- ceeding 10,000 in that parish, 8000 were paupers, and that the rates amounted in many instances to 20s. and in some to ;> 0s. in the pound. The Petition .. was read, and ordered to lie upon the table. Lord Milton presented a Petition from several Parishes in the West Riding ofthe County of York in favour of a Reform in Parliament; and another from the town of ^ etteridge, on the subject of the Poor Laws, which were severally received. RESIDENCE OF THE CLERGY. Mr. Manners Sutton, in rising to ask leave to bring in a Bill to regulate a subject of very considerable impor- tance to the Clergy, took a view of the different Acts which had existed respecting them, since Hcniy VIII. and of one which had been passed thirteen. years ago ( the 43d of his Majesty), with the best intentions. Its powers, however, had been so abused, that Parliament had found it necessary some years since, bv an extraor- dinary interposition, to suspend the prosecutions which had been undertaken by a common informer for the non- residence of beneficed Clergymen on their benefices. For that purpose, the 54th of the King had been brought The 54th of the King was now going to expire BRITISH PAINT MANUFACTORY, Queen- Street, Cheapside, London.

After a few observations from Lord Lascelles, Mr. Lushington, Mr. Curwen, and Dr. Phillimore, the mo- tion was agreed to, and the Committee appointed. RELIEF OF THE POOR. The .£ 1,500,000.

THURSDAY. The Sheriffs of London presented a Petition from the Lord Mayor, Aldermen, and Common Council, praying that the. House would take some steps towards putting down the immense number of Brothels which are known to exist in the Metropolis. Sir J. Shaw moved, that the Petition be referred to the Police Committee. Ordered. Mr. Burrell presented a Petition from the Wool- growers in the vicinity of Brighton and Shoreham, com- plaining of the diminution of the price of Wool, in con- sequence of the large importation of Foreign Wool, lie stated that Wool, within the last 8 years, had fallen SOpercent. The Petition was ordered to He on the table. Mr. Western presented a Petition on the samesubject from the County of Essex, stating the same causes of complaint. The Hon. Gent, contended, that the im- portation had increased within the lastfew years se veral millions above the quantity usually imported, and there, fore they had reason to complain. He hoped a Com- mittee would be appointed to enquire into the subject, and should on some future day move for one. The Petition was laid on the table: as was the one from Essex presented by Mr. Western Mr. Grattan prepensed a Petition from the Corpora- tion of the City of Dublin, against the claims of the Roman Catholics. He must at the same time say, that he- differed from them totally and entirely iu respect to the prayer of their Petition ; and though he did not agree with his worthy constituents, and iliongh lie would not canvass their motives, still he hoped he might be allowed to lament, in their conduct on this occasion, what lie could not presume to blame. The Petition was laid on the table. Mr. Ponsonby moved for a Select Committee to in- quire into, and report on Ihe Laws respecting the ad ministration of justice in Wales.— Agreed to. Mr, Serjeant Onslow moved for leave to bring iu a Bill to repeal the laws which regulate or restrain the rate of interest.— Leave was given to bring in the Bill. The Lottery Bill was read a second time. Mr. l. yttleton proposed that the Bill should be printed. Mr. Vansittart said, the Bill was substantially tin- same as that of last year, and therefore he saw no rea- son for its being printed. On the motion tor the Bill beine committed to- morrow, Mr. l. yttleton moved that tbe - House should adjourn; and there not being 40 Members present, au adjourn- ment took place accordingly.

PLOUGHMAN'S DROPS. A Wonderful Cure of a Scald Head. To DR. SMITH, UI'TO. N MAGNA. DEAR. SIR, WE think ourselves bound in gratitude to yon, for the cure of a child ofotir's, who was sent to a Boarding School in this County ; she. had not been there six weeks before she catched a disorder in hel- ipad, ( 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 five children in that condition, before this child ; who were attended by the Shrewsbury Doctors, and no doubt they put plenty of quicksilver, and other poisonous prescriptions, 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 pectacle of horror; this child is completely cured, and the head entirely free from blemishes, by taking only- two small bottles of Ploughman's Drops, and using the salve. The child is now in perfect health, and the hair iu a beautiful and flourishing condition, and 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 wist to mention the child's name public. D. S. Upton Magna, Dec. 4,1816.

This Bill would throw into distress at least 20,000 fishermen iu that part of the country to which he belonged; and the consequence would be, that if they could not carry on the fisheries, they would have recourse to smuggling— He moved that the Bill be read a second time tins day six months. Sir W. Leman seconded the motion. If it were pos- sible for the House to know the distress this Bill would bring on the fisheriesof Cornwall, he was sure it would never agree to this Bill. Mr. Lushington sai l, this Bill was not intended to op- press the fishers, but to give them tbe benefit of trying the experiment of Rock Salt in the cure of fish, which is much cheaper than refined Salt, and had been found by the Isle of Man fishers to be much better for the cure offish. Instead of being intended to throw 20,000 fishermen out of employment, it was intended to benefit them, by allowing thein to make use of a cheaper arti- cle in the preservation of their fish. He hoped the Hon. Baronet would withdraw his motion, and assist in the Committee to make this Bill as perfect as possible books. After the ceremony, Ihe happy pair set off for Sion House, Middlesex, the seat of the Duke of Northumberland, there to spend the honeymoon.

" His MAJESTY continues in a very tranquil state, and in good bodily health; but his MAJESTY'S disorder is undiminished. The QUEEN is so much recovered from her indisposition, that on Wednesday she took an airing in her carriage aud four, and honoured Lady Cremorne with a visit at her house at Chelsea Farm. French papers have arrived to the 2d instant. The proceedings, in two cases, against• those concerned in the writing and publication of cer- tain seditious works, occupy a considerable space in these papers, and have engaged for and Cottages for labourers; a capital Coal Wharf, Windmill, Public- house, and extensive liiuldings on the Banks ofthe Thames, to which there is a frontage of 1,100 feet. Also, the. Great and Small Tytlies of the entire Parish of Denton. Several valuable FREEHOLD ESTATES, consisting of upwards of One Hundred and Fifteen Acres of rich Marsh uiul Arable Laud, Garden Ground and Orchard, situate. in the several Parishes of Denton, Gravesend, Milton, and Chalk, and part bounded by the high road from London, with several Buildings thereon. The ABSOLUTE REVERSION, on the death ofa Gentleman AGED 70 YEARS, to Forty Acres of Arable Land, iu the Parish of Denton, and now tenanted by Mr. HUBBAI. L. Also, a Range of Stabling, Cow- bouses, Sheds, and enclosed Yard, situate opposite Gravesend Terrace, and held under the Crown for a term of years free from rent. The Estate, may he viewed by applying to Mr. MUM- FOrD, at Denton Court, of whom particulars may be had one month prior to the sale ; particulars also at the King's Head, Rochester; Mitre, Chatham ; Bell, Maid- stone; of Mr. ABBOTT, Solicitor, Mark Lane; at Gar- raway's ; and of Mr. FAREBROTHER, Beaufort House, Beaufort Buildings, Strand some time the public attention at Paris. The Sieur Chevalier has been sentenced to four months" imprisonment for writing, and M. Dentu to three months for printing, a pamphlet, entitled " A Letter M. Le Cointe Decazes;" besides which, they are both condemned to a year's surveillance of the high police— they are re- strained, during five years, from exercising the full rights of French subjects— are fined 1,000 francs and costs, and obliged to give bail to the amount of 000 francs each. The second abuse of the liberty of the press, detailed in the French journals,' is that of M. Rioust., who had been condemned by the Tribunal of ihe First Instance, for having composed and published the work entitled Carnot, to two years'imprisonment, aud a fine of ten thousand francs. It is asserted by Private Correspondence, that the arrest of Doumere, the contractor, has frigh- tened some other gentry of the same profession. Two of great celebrity have quitted Paris. The suspicions against Doumere go to his having availed himself of forged vouchers in making up his public accouuts. It is said that upwards of 100 individuals, French subjects, have been stopt on their way. as is supposed, to South America, where they were to join the insurgents. ANNIVERSARY OF THE PRINCESS CHAR. LOTTE'S MARRIAGE. Clermont May 2.— This day being the first Anniversary of the marriage of the Princess Charlotte of Wales and his Serene Highness Prince Leopold of Cobourg, it was commemo- rated with every expression of joyous congratu- lation by the truly happy couple, and partici- pated in by the Nobility, Gentry, the neighbour- ing population, and Royal Household. The Royal Partners have resided at this mansion nine months, in a slate of comparative retirement from the fashionable world, but not from the active pursuits of life. If they have contracted the sphere of splendid movements, they have been busy in extending their munificence to the em- ployment of the labourer and the mechanic, to relieving the infirm and the aged, and lo alle- viate the sufferings of the afflicted. The daily benevolent proceedings of these illustrious per- sonages well deserve a public record, and even confining ourselves to the recent improvements carrying on at these Royal domains, some esti- mation may be formed of the great advantages the poor have enjoyed. Really we are not sur- prised that this day has been devoted to convi- vial mirth among the village parlies ; that not only have two hundred men been weekly em- ployed in the erection of a line fence railing around the park, in cutting a new road through the domain into the Portsmouth road, forming new walks, laying out new enclosures, gardens, and building out- officcs, but that the private hand of charitv and benevolence has been doubly disseminating its blessings among their families and the sick.— Every day her Royal Highness and his Serene Highness devote the early part of their time to the inspection of these varied im- provements, whilst a liberal scale of economy in their household enables the Steward to distri- bute succour to the numerous applications of distress and misery.— Although the extreme of splendour is not to be discovered in this lloyal establishment, yet the silent gratitude of hun- dreds of people pervades the vicinity of the residence of the Royal Pair. At seven o'clock the dinner rooms were throw n open, and the tables were served up with suitable magnificence and luxury. The Royal Party received the addition of the— Duke and Duchess of York, Prince and Princess Esterhazy, the Bavarian Minister, Lady Castlereagh, Marquis of Anglesea, Earl of Lauderdale, Lord Ash- brook, Countand Countess of Lieven, Lady Harrowby, Lord Burghersh, Lady Susan Ryder, Sir Robert arid Lady Gardiner, Baron de Just, Baron Pfeiffel, Madame de Lochan, Miss Mercer, Dr. Short, & c. & c. Philadelphia papers to the 24th, Boston to the 26th, and Halifax to the 27th of March, have reached us. M. Dashkoff, the Russian Minister, is stated to have been recalled, with rks of BUTLER'S PECTORAL ELIXIR, OR COUGH DROPS I.^ Xl'ERtENCE in almost innumerable cases has proved this Medicine to be the most efficacious rentedv for COLDS, COUGHS, CATARRHS, and ASTHMATIC AFFECTIONS. By promoting gentle expectoration, it almost instantly removes slight and recent Colds, and a very few doses are generally suffi- cient to overcome those which, from neglect, have as- sumed a more serious character, and are also accompa- nied with Cough. Being peculiarly adapted to give freedom to respiration, it is the best medicine in Asthmatic Complaints, Shortness of Breath, Wheezing, ' and Obstructions ofthe Breast and Lungs. In Bottles at. Is. l| d and 2s. 9d. ( the larger containing three small bottles.)

FRIDAY, MAY 2. Petitions were presented against the London Tythes Bill.— Mr. Bcnnet brought up the Report of the Com- mittee on the City Police; and in moving that it be printed, observed, that the attention of the Committee bud been particularly drawn to the present system of licensing public- houses, with regard to which, in many respects, the law had become a dead letter; to supply the deficiences of which, it was his intention shortly to submit a measure to the House. Mr. Bennet then com- plained of a breach of privilege committed by the Rev. J. Thirlwall, in a book vindicating the character of the Tower division Magistrates, containing some passages reflecting on the Police Committee, in conse- quence of which he had summoned the author before the Committee, when he avowed himself the author. The book was handed to the Clerk, and he read the passages complained of. One accused the Chairman of hearing evidence alone; and concluded with saying that he could have wished that his friend, Mr. Mer- ceron, had been tried before Lord Ellenborongh and a Jury, rather than by a Parliamentary Committee. He had no partiality for Committees, whether they were tin- Committees of Cromwell, or the Committees of the French Revolution, Inquisitions, or Star Chambers. Mr. Bennet said, the author had been called on to ex - plain the inuendoes contained in the last passage, and lie had denied that he had accused the Committee of want of candour or impartiality; and that he meant nothing disrespectful to the Committee. Being again pressed to explain that part, he objected to answering that which might criminate himself. He said, he only meant that part of the inuendo ending Inquisition and Star Chamber, merely to fill up a period. It was the desire of the Committee to have accepted any rea- sonable apology ; but none was then offered them by the Emperor Alexander'^ displeasure, for his interference in the affair of the Consul Kosloff. The Spanish Consul in America has given offi- cial notice, that all cotton goods arc prohibited in Spain from the 10th October, 1810. The Legislature of New York is engaged in the re- duction of the emoluments in the gift of the Government of that State. A bill to reduce the salaries about 2. j per cent, below their present amount, has passed the popular branch of the Legislature by a large majority. The Purser of one of the ludiamen arrived in the Channel reached the East India House on Friday evening with dispatches, including, it is understood, the official account to the Direc- tors of the affair between the Alceste and the Chinese forts. The latest intelligence from Canton is of the 22d December, up to which period the local authorities at Canton had suf- fered nothing to transpire as to the progress made by Lord Amherst in his journey from Pekin lo that port. But from the preparations mak- ing by the Viceroy aud Mandarins for his re- ception, it was conjectured that lie would ar- rive in the course of a few days from the above date. All differences with regard to the ship- ping had been settled, and the Chinese and Bri- tish were on better terms than they had been for several years previous to the affair of the Alceste. The same Viceroy who had se, nt Captain Maxwell a message, to say that he must continue outside the river, and that the Ambas- sador would be sent down to him in a Chinese boat, as soon as the Alceste had forced a pas- sage up the river, issued a proclamation autho- rizing that vessel to come up to Whampoo, and allowing the Chinese to supply her with what- ever provisions and water they might require. The latest accounts from St. Helena are of the 0th of March, at which date Buonaparte was in good health. LONDON SESSIONS, FRIDAY, MAY 2. Melancholy Case.— Mary Brown alias Ryan, ( the un fortunate wife of the man who had been executed in the morning), was put to the bar, charged with endea- vouring to procure, and to aid and abet the escape of her husband, and two other persons named Hallard and Handley, from his Majesty's gaol of Newgate, on the I3th of April last. The prisoner, as might well be sup- posed, exhibited the most wretched appearance ; she was convulsed in agony, and had an infant at her breast. The particulars of this case have already appeared. The Recorder having summed up the evidence, the Jury, after some minutes' consultation, pronounced a verdict of Guilty, but, through their foreman, thus addressed the Court :— " My Lord, and Gentlemen— We most earnestly re- commend this almost helpless and wretched woman to your mercy. The whole Court, we feel, has, with our- selves, been agonized at the circumstance, that she who this morning, but a few hours since, was a wife, is now a widow, cast upon society under circumstances of the most heart- rending nature, to seek protection for her- self and orphans. We beg that, in mercy, yon will visit her with the most lenient punishment possible." The Court having consulted a few moments together, the Recorder proceeded to pass sentence upon the prisoner, and having highly complimented the Jury for their very humane recommendation, in which he said the Bench heartily concurred, ordered her to he con- fined in Newgate for one calendar month. The pri- soner, in a flood of tears, begged the Court would suffer her" to go to the wake of her husband ( he being an Irish- man aud a Roman Catholic), and see the last of him." The Court said, it was not in their power to grant such a request. She was then conveyed in custody from the Court; the Jury, however, and almost every indi- vidual in Court, previously bestowing upon her sums of money. YORK STAMP- Office. Robbery.— On Sunday se'n- night, the church- yard of Fulford, near York, was exa- mined, and on opening a tomb- stone, some saddles and bridles stolen from Mr. Jones, of Fulword, were dis- covered ; and under an adjoining tomb- stone was found a large quantity of cloth, of the value of £' 100. the propertv of a hawker, stolen from the Fleece inn, in York, in Feb. last In consequence of these discove- ries, the whole of . Monday and Tuesday was employed in searching various church yards in York, aud within 2 miles around; and en the latter day, the whole of the stamps, tied up in parcels with handkerchiefs, were dis- covered tinder a tomb stone in the church- yard of St. Cuthbert, Peaseholm- green. The value of the stamps stolen from the office proves to be - f- 5980. The stamps found are not capableof being identified as those stoTOi, except so far as they may agree in denomination and amount; but one of the wrappers inclosing a parcel of stamps belonged to the office, and a bundle of papers belonging to Mr. Newstead, and some depositions iu Blackburn's trial for transposition of stamps, which had been packed up by the thieves along with the stamps in the hurry of their removal, and were found undei the same tomb- stone, will prevent any possibility of doubt on this head. Three men are fully committed, who arrived from Hull by the coach on the evening of Thursday the 17th, and soon after committed the rob- bery. They were all taken at Hull. Wilson, one of the men, is known thereby the name of Colonel's Jack, or King's Jack, from his having been servant to Colonel King. He is just returned from a seven years' confine- ment at the hulks under a sentence of transportation. ' Richmond, March 17.— MELANCHOLY EVENT.— We have to state a melancholy event which happened on board the steam- boat Powhatan, Captain Sinister, on Saturday last, about 10 or 11 o'clock. The fuel failing, the boat stopped near Wilton, about six miles below this city, to take in a fresh supply of wood. Oil these occasions it was the custom for the engineer to open the safety valve to let the steam escape, and prevent its accumulation. But unfortunately the valve was not opened in time on this occasion ; one of the engineers being engaged about the fuel, and the other failing to lift the valve in time. The consequence was, that the steam rose to 11 or 12 inches, instead of its usual height of 9 inches; and the condensation of it became too great for the strength of the boiler, on the right side of the boat. This boiler burst with a sudden and loud noise, towards the top, and one of the firemen who was below, almost immediately expired ; whether scalded to death, or struck by some fragments, seems not to have been ascertained. One of the engineers had his face slightly grazed, and one of his feet slightly scalded. No other accident happened to any other ofthe crew, or any of the passengers. The boat was towed up to Rocketts on the same day." MAIDSTONE, May 6. —• V — HOP INTELLIGENCE.

The Northiam Oak.— On a bank near the church, in the centre of tlie village of Northiam, Sussex, stands a fine old oak, in deep decay, which lias often been a subject for the pencil of the artist, and lias acquired a sort of patriarchal distinction in that place. Amongst the memorabilia ofthe parish, there is written evidence ot iis being termed " the great old oak," abov: two hundred and thirty years ago ; consequently it may be fairly considered, from that denomination, and its present state of decay, as having attained the age of five hundred years. MARRIED. A few days since, in London, Mr. Grosvenor, chief Clerk of the Maidstone Bank, to Miss Susan Tyrrell, daughter of Mr. John Tyrrell, ironmonger, of this town. By the. Rev.

Garrow to the Exchequer Bench, the office of Chief Justice of Chester becomes vacant, and also his seat for the Borough of Eye, in the House of Commons. Mr. Leach will probably be appointed Chief Justice of Chester. Hone and Wooler, the first author of the Reformist's Register, and the latter the pub- lisher of the Black Dwarf, are reported to have been arrested under the new law of libel. Detonating Balls.— On Easter Sunday, a youth from Leeds who had been on a visit to his friends at South Kirby having a few detonating balls in a tin case iu his pocket, accidentally struck his coat against a door, when the Balls exploded, and about two inches of the case per forated the back part of bis thigh. A consider- able hemorrhage ensued, which, although re- strained for some time, caused the death of the patient, after lingering about three weeks. Friday evening as a boy, about ten years old was attempting to get a hoop, with which he had been playing out of the water, near the Pa- goda Bridge, in the Park, he overbalanced him- self, and fell in. Another boy, who viewed the transaction, gave the alarm; and although im- mediate ' assistance'- was rendered, he was' not got out for nearly half an hour, when the vital spark was quite extinct. Horrible Deed.— At Wigton, on Sunday se'nnight ; Anne, wife of William Graham, blacksmith, murdered two of her children by strangulation, left another for dead, and after- wards cut her own throat ! ! As soon as her husband was gone to church, she Called the children into the house and locked the door. After washing them, she gave the oldest ( a boy about nine years of age) an infant to hold, which was sucking at her breast, and then took three other children into an adjoining room, one by one, and put them to death by strangling them With her hands. When she came for the third, the boy before- mentioned became alarmed, laid the infant on the floor, and got into the black- smith's'shop, where lie concealed himself under the large bellows. His mother followed him into the shop but could not find him. After she returned into the dwelling- house, the boy esca- ped from the shop, met his father returning from church, and told him the dreadful tale; when the unhappy woman was found with her throat dreadfully cut, without any signs of life — the infant was lying on the floor unhurt, and the other three children were found in bed : two of them quite dead ; the other shewed symp- toms of life, and by proper care has been much recovered. The Coroner's Jury returned a ver- dict of—" Insanity," Mr. John Cutbush, sen. is appointed Postmaster of this town, in the room of the late Thomas Poole, Esq. A Meeting of the Hop Planters is to be held on Thursday next, at the Star Inn, in this town, to take into consideration Mr. Calvert's Bill for regulating the package of Hops.—{ See Advertisement.) We are informed that Dr. Smith, of London, has commenced practice in this town, in place of tiie late Francis Smith, M. D. By a statement of the Sevenoaks Provident Bank ( inserted in the first page), it appears that upwards of £ 2000 has already been deposited therein, chiefly by the industrious poor, who, by their little savings may thus come te be relieved from their own funds, instead of having recourse to poor rates or private charity. The extraordinary splendour of the planet Venus during the month of April, which she will likewise exhibit in the month of June, lias fixed the attention of those who study the appearance ofthe heavenly bodies. This planet displays the same brightness every nine- teen months ; but she will this year present a phe- nomenon much more rare and curious ; for, from the 18th to the 2' 2d of this month, both days inclusive, she will appear both as the morning and evening star, rising a few minutes before the sun, and setting about the same time after him. The last month proved the dryest April in the re- membrance of the oldest person living : at the close of it scarcely one hundredth part of an inch of rain could be measured. The grand pedestrian match between Eaton and Baker is fixed to commence on Wednesday afternoon, at Wormwood Scrubs. At the last Quarter Sessions for the City of Ro- chester, the Recorder, in the name of the Mayor and Corporation, communicated their thanks to the Rev. Mr. Browne, Curate of St. Nicholas, and a Minor Canon, for his humane attendance on the prisoners, and the beneficial effects they bad already received from his instruction and ministry. In consequence ef the Excise Warehouse, at New Romney, having been lately broken open, and robbed of 20 tubs of Hollands and other property to a consi- derable amount, Bishop, belonging to Bow- street Office, was sent for to discover the robbers ; and after various enquiries, and a considerable pursuit, he appre- hended Robert Stacie, John Colt, and Wm. Brown, on suspicion of' being concerned in that robbery. They were taken before the Mayor and Magistrates, anil committed for further examination. On the 28th ult. a daring attempt was made to rob the shop of Mrs. Tunbridge, grocer, of Canterbury. Between the hours of eight and nine, while the family was at supper, some villian opened the door, delibe- rately walked round the counter and stole the till with its contents, being a quantity of half- pence. Mrs. Tun- bridge hearing a noise, supposed it was a customer, and on opening the door to enter the shop, observed a person walk hastily from behind the counter with the till in bis hand. She immediately gave an alarm, when the villain dropped the till with its contents in the road, and made iiis escape, through Love- lane. At a General Sessions of the Peace for the Town of Folkestone, held oil Saturday, the 28th ult. before Henry Butcher, esq. Mayor, and C. J. Lawrence, esq. Recorder— William Brand was tried upon an indict- ment for maliciously and wilfully shooting at Cornelius Wright, and Acquitted. He was then indicted for an assault upon the same person, and being found Guilty. CORN- EXCHANGE, MONDAY, MAY 5, 1817.
