On Wednesday uight were received the Paris Papers of Sunday last. They all give notice that they should not publish on Monday, on account of the solemnity of the Feast of Penti- cost, except any official article required tiie pub- lication of a Mouiteur. The following are ex- tracts : — Paris, May 25.— The Duchess d'Angouleme intends to pass some time at the Waters of Vichy. Letters from Barcelona, of the 10th instant, say nothing respecting Ihe trial of General Lacy, whose fate appears to be still undecided. There was still no intelligence of Milans. It is not true that the Bishop of that City had quitted his diocese, to go to Madrid, to solicit the clemency of the King. Madame Catalani is still at Florence. Indis- position prevented her from singing at a concert where she was expected with much impatience by the Florentines. Madame Catalani quits Florence about the end of this month. Preparations are making at Fontainbleau for the reception of his Majesty, who proposes to pass there a part of the summer, lu the mean time the Thuilleries will undergo reparation. Five per Cenls. 67 f. 40 c. Vienna, May 14.— Yesterday evening at seven o'clock the ceremony of the marriage of the Archduchess Leopoldine took place at Court with the greatest solemnity. Immediately after- wards the Count Eugene de Werbna set out for Rio Janeiro with the intelligence of it. The departure of her Imperial Highness will probably take place about the 9tli or 10th of June, or perhaps some days later. It is fully confirmed that an Austrian Corps has received orders to evacuate the Kingdom of Naples,' and to proceed provisionally into the Austrian provinces of Upper Italy. It is still said that the Kingdom of Naples will be suc- cessively entirely evacuated, but this news is not officially published. Some persons suppose that the Prince de Metternich will finally ar- range this point during his stay in Italy. Stutgard, May 16— The letter of Prince Paul to the Privy Council has excited some sen- sation here. The Prince, who, since the death of the late King, has not had a good understand- ing with his brother, the present Monarch, and who had quitted the kingdom with all his family to reside at Hanau, lias openly pronounced against the system of the Government, and de- clared himself the Chief of the Opposition, who it appears have had frequent communications with his Royal Highness, and have induced him to put himself forward at tins decisive moment. Cassel, May 12.— Several steps have been taken to obtain the convocation of a Hessian Diet, but it appears the Elector will not con- sent to it. REVOLUTION IN CHILL Revolution follows Revolution in quick suc- cession, on the great American Continent. The extensive province of Chili, one of the finest aud most productive which tiie Spanish Monarchy possesses, has now ranged itself on the side of independence. In order to enable our Readers to judge of the importance of the accession thus, gained bv the patriotic cause it may lie necessary to state that Chili has been considered as the most fertile and populous district of the South American hemisphere. It is also rich in mines of gold, silver, and copper, and the inhabitants have been always described by travellers as more averse to the dominion of Spain than those of any other part of the Spanish Trans- Atlantic possessions. Chili is bounded on the West by the Pacific Ocean: on the land side it adjoins Peru, Paraguay, and Ihe country discovered by Buonaparte.— It is again reported, that there is a very deep laid and widely extended plot to effect the escape of Buonaparte. There are said to be enormous deposits in the Banks of every Government iu Europe, belonging to Buonaparte himself, his Brothers, Sisters, Relatives, and Adherents of various descriptions aud under different names, which, it is added, are intended to be employed iu every possible way to deliver I him from his present situation, and to embroil all Europe in the attempt to restore him to all his former power. Gen. Humbert, who landed many years ago in Ireland, is now at the head of a number of French emigrants, and is supposed to have joined the Independents of New Mexico. The Hannah, Capt. Heathorne, arrived from Bombay at Liverpool, brought home eight com- panies of the 56th regiment, under the command of Lieut.- Col. Kingscote. They have been ten yea. rs in India. The men landed in excellent health. Extract of a letter dated Rotterdam, May 19; ' I am just arrived here from Amsterdam, where there are no less than 4000 Swiss and German peasants waiting lo embark for America, and more are arriving daily. The City of Utrecht is crowded with these distressed emigrants; and at Amsterdam there are about 500 encamped in the open fields, waiting for the like purpose. Their appearance is exceedingly novel, and they seem to be orgazized in clans, having Chiefs and a gradation of superiors. At Amsterdam I saw them frequently promenading the Street in little bands, with a leader at their head. Their cos- tume is very simple, and for the most part mean; the men wear short brown jackets, loose dow- sers, and striped worsted caps, or very broad brim hats ; and the women wear their heads bare, except a small band with which Ibey tie their hair, which is long and plaited. Both men and women wear immensely large clogs, which the French call sabots, aud arc entirely one piece of wood. The countenances of these people are of a darkish brown, and there is generally depicted in them an expression of ignorance, as well as a fixed pensivenesss, which informs the spectator of their unhappy situation. A great number of them are begging in the streets, and it is said they are the unfortunate dupes of a miscreant German, who pretended to be an agent appointed to receive their passage money to America, and after having succeeded in this diabolical purpose of ruining these wretched ex Mian. In point ot ottering extended taci- ities tor the introduction of European commerce, it is therefore most advantageously situated. By the Colonel Allan, Capt. M'Lennon, ar- rived from the North West Company's settle- ment, on the river Columbia, and last from Bue- nos Ayres, Letters and Gazettes to the 10th of March have arrived, which inform us that the Buenos Ayres Army, commanded by Gen. San Martin, and destined to free Chili from ils Spa- nish oppressors, has met with most complete suc- cess. On the 12th of Feb. the Patriots met the Royalists near Chabuco, defeated them in a ge- neral action, and the result of this victory was the complete downfal of the Spanish power in this interesting portion of the South American Continent. A new form of Government was in- stantly organized in the capital of Santiago, and the Supreme Directorship confided to Don Bar- nardo O'Higgins, who issued a Proclamation, congratulatory of the event, to the people of Chili. On the 13th of March, three of the ene- my's standards, two taken on the coast of Val- paraiso and the other at Llamparaes, in Upper Peru, reached Buenos Ayres. Tiie former Spa- nish Governor of Chili, Marco del Pont, had been taken by the Patriots. The brave army of the Andes, with Gen. San Martin at its head, had covered itself with glory, and was expected to rccross the Andes mountains before the win- ter closed them, with a large body of Chilenian auxiliaries, to fall 0n the rear of the Royalist army acting in Peru. Such a succession of im- portant events had given fresh life and tone to every thing at Buenos Ayres, from whence all the Portuguese had been banished to Luxan. Extract of another letter from Buenos Ayres, dated March 4:—" You will have heard that Chili has been conquered by the Buenos Ayres Army. The people of this place are exceedingly elated with their success, and the Government has ordered all the Portuguese to be sent into the interior, and kept as hostages, so that, i sup pose, a war with Portugal will be inevitable. 1 fear the trade of Buenos Ayres will soon be com- pletely destroyed, the Government having laid on such enormous duties.— Many articles pay 7i> per cent." Gen. San Martin's Dispatch to the Supreme Director of Buenos Ayres, giving the particulars of the above Revolution, has been received. The action does the greatest credit to the Com- mander- in- Chief, as well as the Officers and men who fought under him, and it may perhaps be considered as a prelude to the conquest of all Peru. A bolder and more interesting enterprise has not been undertaken in the New World, than the attempt to cross the Cordilleras of the Andes, in the face of a numerous enemy. The passes of Mounts St. Gothard and St. Bernard, are not more difficult. The Spaniards, both in Europe and America, laughed at the idea of an army with artillery and baggage crossing such a suc- cession of rugged mountains, elevated ridges, commanded by narrow passes and defiles, ll has nevertheless been done, and in a stile that would do honour to the first military leader in Europe, not only in point of real bravery, but in combination, perseverance, & e. Gen. San Martin lost 110 less than 1200 horses in dragging up his artillery, etc. and after all, he attacked the Spaniards without it, though they were superior in numbers, and held all the keys and passes from which lie successively drove them, till he conquered them in a general action at Chacabuca, one of the divergent ridges of the Andes. Thus did he liberate Chili, which has groaned under Spanish oppression since October 1814; when the people of that country, through the instigations and interference of a British Officer, consented to receive a Chief and troops from Lima, to their sorrow, since banishments confiscations, & c. were the result, notwithstand- ing a solemn amnesty had preceded. The su preme command of Chili was offered first to Gen. San Martin ; but he declined it, as lie had another equally important operation in view. It was then conferred 011 General O'Higgins, who had shared in the glory of the re- conquest, a brave and enlightened man, and educated in England. The liberation of Chili will open the interior of the Buenos Ayres trade. A number of traders had already followed the army with packages of goods, which had been deposited at Mendoza, in order to go over the Andes as soon as the Patriot arms were victorious. By some of the letters from Buenos Ayres up to the 17th of March, it appears that the Portuguese strongly endeavour to conciliate the public opinion, profess their friendly views to commerce with England and other nations, and disclaim all connection with Old Spain, being determined to hold the country as a part of the Chacabuco, in honour of the victory just ob- tained. and a brig of 14 guns had received tin name of San Martin. It has been frequently asked, how it was that information of the Brazil Revolution lias not been received by some of our ships of war in a direct manner'? The fact is, we have not a ship nil the Brazil station; they have all been trans- ferred to the River Plate, and Commodore Bowles only left the latter place about the 10th ot March, lor Rio Janeiro, to be present at the King's coronation, which was to take place on the 1st of April! We further learn, that the revolution was to have broken out simultaneously throughout the whole kingdom, 011 the 17th of March, in conformity to a preconcerted plan, but the accident already related caused the ex- plosion at Pernambuco on the 7th. In order, however, not to accelerate or hurry the event, • I he new Government laid an embargo on all ves sels to continue to the 17th. The Rowena, which brought the accounts to Admiral Harvey, did not escape, but sailed 011 the 13th of March with a regular licence obtained from the Provi- sional Government, as thai vessel was bound to a foreign port, and gave securities he would not touch at any part of the Brazil coast. We may therefore conclude thgt the accounts of the revo- lution having actually broke out at Bahia, & c. on the 13th of March, owing to the great dis- tances, cannot be correct; yet there is little doubt but it would burst forth on the 17th in every part of the Brazils. In the City these events, regarded only in a commercial point of view, have produced a great sensation. Already do the merchants view the immense line of coast from the mouth of the Amazon round by Cape Horn and along the whole coasts of Chili and Peru, open to their enterprise and speculations. Goods to the amount of 600,000 dollars were expected to be sent to Chili in the space of six weeks from the date of the late advices, which are to the 20th March. The success of General San Martin, in the conquest of Chili, has caused such a demand for British goods at Buenos Ayres, towards sup- plying the new markets which the arms of the Insurgents have opened, as the whole of the warehouses in the River Plate are unable to satisfy ; and, in consequence, numerous orders were received 011 Wednesday for the forwarding to Buenos Ayres of fresh goods. One of the correspondents, in giving his orders, observes, " You have reason to rejoice in the success of our arms, since we are only agents for the sale of British manufactures." The following communication, received on Wednesday morning at Lloyd's sets at rest all question as to the authenticity of the report re- ceived of the Revolution in the Brazils: Extract of a letter from Lloyd's Agent at Portsmouth, dated May 27.—" The accounts of an insurrection having broken out in the Brazils was brought by his Majesty's ship Tigris from Barbadoes. We are informed, that a Mr. Brown had arrived at that Island from Bahia in a brig, and reported that the insurrection was general. He had chartered several ships to proceed to Bahia, for the purpose of conveying from thence British property. He was coming to England in the ship Steadfast, bound to Bristol, to solicit Government to send out a frigate and bring home specie, and that sailed from Barbadoes the 8th of April. The Tigris came from St. Kitt's, hut received this account from his Majesty's ship Scamander, which arrived at St. Kitt's the llth of April, from Barbadoes. The Childers sloop of war also arrived at St. Kitt's from Bar- badoes, just before the Tigris sailed, and con- firmed the intelligence. We do not know the day Mr. Brown arrived at Barbadoes, but it was previous to the 8th of April. Brazils. The liberation of Chili had new impulse to the energies of Buenos Ayres.— The conquest of Peru was already in agitation, where the Spanish forces were inadequate. Jose Miguel Carrera, a Chilenian, who formerly had taken au active part in the revolution of his country, had arrived iu the Plate, on board a ship of considerable force from the United States, aud two other vessels had followed him. It was his intention to obtain commissions from the Government of Buenos Ayres, and to proceed to the coast of Chili. The Government, how- ever, knowing him to be very unpopular there, and having favoured the installation of O'Hig- gins as Supreme Director of Chili, detained him, but took the armed vessels into its own service, and in all probability, witli others, they will pro- patriots, he decamped, leaving his victims to cecd to the South Seas as an auxiliary force- mourn over their accumulated miseries 1" | The largest, of 26 guns, had been named the Windsor, May 28.— The young gentlemen of Eton College walked from Salt Hill in grand procession, yesterday afternoon, in their full . Montem dresses, to Frogmore, where they had the honour to be invited by the Queen. Her Majesty, accompanied by Ihe Prince Regent and the Princesses, were in readiness to receive them. They were headed by the Master of Eton College. They were regaled with wine, cakes, tea and other refreshments. The band of the Coldstream regiment attended in the gardens, and played during the entertainment various pieces. Her Majesty had a select party of the Nobility and particular friends lo partake in the juvenile entertainment. The gentlemen and scholars belonging to the College left Frog- more a little before nine o'clock, highly grati- fied with the manner they had been received and entertained by the Royal Family. The Prince Regent left for London soon after eight. Her Majesty and patty remained till eleven, when the Queen and Princesses returned to tile Castle. This morning the Queen and Princess Eliza- beth went to spend the day at Frogmore. The Princesses Augusta rode on horseback. Arundel, May 20.— We are happy to an- nounce the very flattering agricultural report of the crops in the western division of this county ; which is confirmed by the general observations of the farthers residing along the coast, the South Downs and iu the fer tile Weald of Sussex. The genial showers of rain, which have co- piously fell for the last week, have miraculously improved the Lammas sown Wheats beyond all human anticipation, and upon all soils they bear a most luxuriant and fruitful growth. The Lent sown Wheats have sprung up with Ihe most healthy verdure. Owing to the long drought, the oats do not promise well, and the crop ap- pears thin and straggling in many places. The Barley sowing is not completed but the late rains having now penetrated the ground plough depth, that business will be finished this week. The early sown seeds have rooted well, and already show the most gratifying hopes of a plentiful produce. The Clover lands never looked better, and the Grass meadows will bear a rich swath, if the weather should continue warm. We feel great pleasure in stating, that throughout this district a greater breadth of Wheat has been sown this year than was evet remembered by the oldest farmer, notwithstand- ns; the sceptical remarks of agricultural depres- sion, IMPORTANT STATE PAPERS. Differences between Spain and Portugal. " May 8. — The conduct of the Government of Brazil, in invading the Spanish possessions in the River Plate, has occupied the attention of Europe as much 011 account of the act itself, as on account or the period in which it was done. All nations were convinced that the profoundest peace was necessary to heal the deep wounds which had been the consequences of so many years of war and revolution. Yet Ibis was the moment which the Court of Brazil chose to invade the territories of its neighbour. The Spanish Government on this occasion acted with the greatest prudence and mode- ration— and the Allied Powers afford afresh proof of their generous ideas and their pacific intentions. The following Note from the Ministers of Austria, France, Great Britain, Prussia, and Russia, delivered to the Marquis de Aguiar, his Most Faithful Majesty's Mi- nister for Foreign affairs, is a document perfectly well calculated to tranquillize the public mind, and to in- duce a hope that the Court of Brazil, adopting those principles of legitimacy and justice upon which the present system of the world is founded, will avoid coin- promising herself with the- Allied Powers. The good faith and dignified character of his Catholic Majesty- are most apparent upon this occasion.— Hie decisive language of the Ministers from whom the following Note has proceeded, will prove the opinion of their respective Sovereigns in favor.! of Spain— and that their relations with her are as fixed and solid as they can be between Powers the most intimately connected. Note from the Ministers of the Mediating Courts to the Marquis d'Aguiar, Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to his Most Faithful Majesty. " Paris, 16th March, 1817.— The occupation of a part of the Spanish possessions on the River Plate by the Portuguese troops of Brazil was no sooner known in Europe, than it was the object of official and simul- taneous steps taken by the Cabinet of Madrid with the Courts of Vienna, Paris, London Berlin, and St. Pe- tersburg^, in order to protest solemnly against this occupation, and to claim their support against such an aggression. " Perhaps the Court of Madrid might have thought herself entitled to recur at once to the means of defence which Providence has placed in her hands, and to repel force by force. But, guided by a spirit of wisdom and moderation, she was desirous first of employing the means of negociation and persuasion, and she preferred, notwithstanding the disadvantages that might result to her possessions beyond sea, addressing herself to the five undermentioned Powers, in order to an amicable adjustment of her differences with the Court of Brazil, and toavoida rupture, the consequence of which might be equally disastrous to the two countries, and might disturb the repose of both hemispheres. " So noble a resolution could not but meet with the entire approbation of the Cabinets to which the Court of Spain has addressed herself; and animated with the desire, of preventing the fatal consequences that might result from the present state of affairs, the Courts of Austria, France, Great Britain, Prussia, and Russia, equally the friends of Portugal and Spain, after having taken into consideration the just claims of the latter power, have charged the Undersigned to make known to the Cabinet of his Most Faithful Majesty. " That they have accepted the mediation demanded of them by Spain. " That they have seen with real pain, and not with- out surprise, that at the very moment when a double marriage seemed to bind more closely the family ties already existing between the Houses of Braganza and Bourbon, and when such an alliance was to render the relations between the two countries more intimate and more friendly, Portugal has invaded the Spanish pos- sessions on the River Plate, and invaded them without any explanation whatever, and without any previous declaration. " That the principles of equity and justice which direct the councils of the five Courts, and the firm resolution they have adopted to preserve as much as is "" in their power the peace of the world, purchased by , such great sacrifices, have determined them to take cognizance and part in this affair, in the intention of * ' terminating it in the most equitable manner, and most " conformable to their desire of maintaining the general tranquillity. ' " That the said Courts do not dissemble that a dif- fcrence between Portugal and Spain might disturb that " peace and occasion a war in Europe, which might be " not only disastrous to the two countries, but incom- patible With the interests and the tranquillity of other Powers. sl' " That in consequence they have, resolved to make 01 known to the Government of his Most Faithful Majesty w their sentiments on this subject, to invite him to furnish sufficient explanations upon his views, to take the most prompt and proper measures to dissipate the just alarms which his invasion of the American possessions of Spain has already caused in Europe, and to satisfy the rights claimed by the latter Power, as well as those principles of justice and impartiality which guide the Mediators. A refusal to yield to such demands would 9 leave no doubt with respect to the real intentions of the Cabinet of Rio Janeiro. The disastrous effects that might result to the two hemispheres would be im- puted entirely to Portugal ; and Spt- ir., after having seen all Europe applaud her wise and moderate con- duct, would find in the justice of her cause, and in the support of her allies, sufficient means of redressing her complaints. " The undersigned, iu acquitting themselves of the orders of their Courts, have the honour to offer to his Excellency the Marquis d'Agniar the assurance ot their high consideration.

" STUART, LUCIEN BUONAPARTE Geneva, April 21.— I send you a Copy of the Docu- ment that contains the determination of the Allied Powers to prevent the escape of Lucien Buonaparte 10 the United States of America, and those ulterior plans which the discontented refugees propose for the purpose of making of America a theatre of revolutionary ideas, and a new field for ambition and intrigue. The princi- ples of justice, order, and legitimacy that govern the Powers of Europe, will always disconcert the machina- tions ( ft the seditious to disturb the peace, and wiil ap- pose a barrier to their spirit of rapine, and their plans of usurpation. The first and most efficacious informa- tion of this business was derived from the zeal and ac- tivity of the Spanish Government, well informed of th" se plots by exact accounts received both in Europe and America. Thin Spain deserves the confidence of all Governments, and tiie approbation of the people. notwithstanding the refusal of passports, find means of deceiving the vigilance of the Roman Government, and of escaping to proceed to America, it would be desirable that another abode be assigned him than Rome and the Roman States, by the High Allied Powers, and that he should be further removed from the coasts, in order to render the plans of escape which he mav meditate more difficult. This opinion being common to all the Members of the Conference, it has been resolved to consign it in the Protocol of the day, in order that it may bo made known to the four Courts, and may produce a determi- nation on their part upon this subject.

An unpleasant rencontre took place at the Clerken- well Sessions on Monday evening, between the above two Learned Counsel, not much dissimilar in its origin at least, from that which, led to the duel between Mr. Adolphus and Mr. Alley. It appears, that on the day above mentioned Mr Andrew- sand Mr. Adolphus were opposed to each other, and differed as to the construc- tion of a clause, of the Police Act respecting rogues and vagabonds. In the course of the pleadings Mr. Adolphus displayed what Mr. Andrews thought was an undue warmth, and used some coarse expressions not applicable to the complexion of the case. Mr. An- drews accordingly interrupted Mr. Adolphus, and in- timated that he thought an apology was due for such language. Mr. Adolphus then observed, that if the Court considered itself insulted, he was bound tc apo- logize, and he did thereby apologize accordingly. Mr. Andrews replied, that there was a party in addition to the Court, to whom an apology was also due. Here- upon Mr. Adolphus retorted with quickness and warmth, that he should make no apology to a person who had received his education in a cobler's stall. Mr. Andrews made no further remark, but sat down. When tbe business of the Court was over, and when Mr. Adolphus was going down stairs on his way heme, after unrobing, he received a violent blow from an um - brella held bv Mr. Andrews. Mr. Adolphus, being similarly armed, tried to return the compliment, and a kind of fencing match or cudgel play took place between them Mr. Adolphns being the " more expert of tS; e two, in a few minutes disarmed his opponent, and as- sumed the attitude of a regular bruizer, and as dame Fortune or Bellona ( we know act which) still con- tinued to smile upon him, he gave Mr. Andrews a black eye on the first onset. Mr. Andrews was preparing to return the compliment wilh interest, when his uplifted arm was arrested by Mr. Girdler the Magistrate.— We need scarcely add, that both parties were immediately bound over to keep the peace. OLD BAILEY.— Wednesday last, the Sessions ended, when sentence of death was passed on Thomas Piper, and Wm.

Young Watson.— In a letter from Plymouth, of Monday se'nnight, it is stated that young Watson instead of escaping to America via Li- verpool, actually sailed from that port. Watson found his way there in the dress of a woman. On the 19th of December he went on board a ship in Ihe harbour, called the Severn, off and for Philadelphia a fair wind springing up, the Severn sailed from hence on the 20th, but was forced back again by unfavourable weather on t he 23d. The Severn was commanded by a Captain Watson ; and it is supposed that young Watson was there nineteen days, during all which period the walls were covered with the proclamation for taking him. Singular Wager.— A farmer at Kirton Linsey, in Lincolnshire, undertook, last week, for a wager, to ride his policy up to the chamber of tiie second floor of the George Inn, in that town, and down again; which ridiculous exploit he performed, to the astonishment of all present. A few days since, R. S. Milbourne, Esq. of Armathwaite Castle, in hunting for the otter, The following Document wiil be read with much interest:- PARIS, - Protocol of the Conference qf the 13th of , March. Present- The MINISTER of AUSTRIA, Duke de RICHELIEU. Duke of WELLINGTON, Sir CHARLES STUART, The PRUSSIAN MINISTER, The MINISTER of RUSSIA. The Conference having been opened this day with their Excellencies tbe Dukes ol Richelieu and Wellington, to take into consideration the demand made by Lucien Buonaparte for passports to conduct one of his sons to the United States, aud the Austrian Minister having again laid down the three Questions proposed at the Protocol of. the 2d instant, relative to the same object, it has been agreed— 1. That North America having received a great num- ber of mal- contents and French refugees, the presence of Lucien Buonaparte in the United States would be still more dangerous than it is in Europe, w here he can be better watched, and that in consequence it is lo be desired that the passports he has asked for should be refused. 2. That in order to deprive him of all plausible mo tives for soliciting the said passports, it would be equally desirable to refuse lliem to his son Charles, whose journey seems to be only a pretext for the plans of the father. 3. That the news received by different means and from different countries, particularly from Naples, leave no doubt ofthe intrigues and dangerous relations which Lueien Buonoparte keeps up in Italy— and con- sidering that Rome is perhaps of all cities that in which superintendence is the most difficult to be exercised, aud is exercised with less severity, and that he may, started a fox, which the hounds ran to earth IU Baron Wood. To the great surprise of the sportsmen, upon digging, they found a litter of 12 cubs, nine of which are in Mr. Milbourne's possession. As so numerous a family necessa- rily required abundance of sustenauc , ihe hole afforded ample testimony of the depredations that must have been committed in the neigh- bourhood upon lambs, geese, and fowls of a. I descriptions.— Mr. Dixon, steward to Sir P. Musgrave, Bart, also found a litter of seven cubs, a few ( lavs since, in the woods near Eden Hall. In both instances the old ones escaped ; and in the former, the old fox approached within a very few yards of the spot where they were digging, and though frequently chased off by the hounds, still returned. A singular circumstance occurred on Thursday in Salisbury: — As some stone- masons were work- ing in the church- yard of St. Edmund, they ob- served the lop stone of a tomb had been shifted, and 011 examining it, to their surprise found it contained a piece of superfine broad cloth: a farther search was made, and in two others was. found a portmanteau, containing the following articles: — a large quantity of neck- kerchiefs, shirts, stockings, waistcoats, small clothes, and a coat; a quantity of parchment, boots, writings, ribands, silks, & c.; a dark lantern, lot of pick- lock keys, iron wrenches, two pieces of ladies' cloth, and a wrapper, containing a bundle of cloth, bought of Messrs. Wyatt and Richardson, drapers, of that city, with a bill enclosed, amount- ing to about £ 8., has no name on it. LONDON, FRIDAY, MAY 30, 1817. A Mail from Hamburgh arrived on Thursday. The Anti- commercial System appears to be assuming in different countries those features which will at length open the eyes of mankind to its absurdity. A Decree has been published at Stockholm, prohibiting the sale of prepared coffee in inns, hotels, coffee- houses, taverns, & c. under severe penalties. All use and sale of foreign wines, known by ihe names of Cham- paigne, Burgundy, Canary, Malmsey, Sack, Cape, or Tokay, as well as all foreign liquors, spirits, brandy, cyder, and beer, are also entirely prohibited, and to cease from the 1st of January next year, under the severest penalties. A Mail from Flanders arrived on Friday morning: — " Brussels, May 24.— Messieurs Cauchios Le- maire and Guyet, proprietors of the Naine Jaune, and afterwards the Vroi Liberal, set out this morning at six o'clock for Antwerp, the term of eight days granted them to leave the kingdom expiring to- day. L. Lallemant, pro- prietor of the Journal of East and West Flanders, formerly Secretary to Felix Lepelletier, and af- terwards proprietor of the Aristarchus, must also have quitted Ghent. The same is the case with M. Brissot, nephew to ihe too famous Member of the Convention, ofthe same name who was the proprietor of the Constitutional Journal of Antwerp. " Frankfort, May 21.— Between the 1st and 101b of this month, the number of emigrants from Baden, Alsace, Wurtemburg, and the prin- cipality of Goroldseck, which belongs to Aus- tria, who have passed through Mayence, going down the Rhine, is 1739 men, 1235 women, and 2- 543 children— in all 5517." THE INSURRECTION IN THE BRAZILS. The following important intelligence was re- ceived on this subject at Lloyd's on Friday morning:— " Pernambuco, March 18 .— On ihe 8th inst. a Revolution took place be e, occasioned by an order of the late Government to arrest several Brazilian Officers of the regiments of Olinda and Ricife; the former are artillery. Several of c;: ch were apprehended. The Colonel of the first went to the Barracks to execute the order, and was killed by one of his own Captains, who, on being named run him through Ihe body with his sword. An Aide- de- Camp of the Governor's soon after appeared there and met the same fate ; both regiments sided with their Officers. " The Governor, with his personal Staff, and some other Officers, quitted the town and retired to the Fort of Brun, about a quarter of a mile from the town. Ou the following morn ing this fort was delivered up without any resistance, and the Governor and his Officers, & c. made prisoners, and shipped on board a sumaco for Rio Janeiro. A Provisional Go- vernment is now formed of five persons, and the British residents have been informed that their persons and property are under the pro- tection of the Government. By the George, dispatches are sent to his Majesty's Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs. Few lives were lost on the late occasion, and the town was never more quiet." " March 28. — Since writing the above, on the 18th inst. nothing of a political nature has oc- cuired. Advices are daily expected from Bahia of the part that Province will lake." Extract of a letter from the Agents to Lloyd's, at Lisbon, dated the 17th of May :—" The Por- tuguese ship Camoens, arrived from Bengal and Pernambuco, brings accounts of an insurrection having broken out at the latter place on the 6th. or 7th of March, headed by Domiugos Joze Martins, formerly of the bouse of Bernozo Mar- tins, Dourado, and Cavallo, of London. The insurgents have declared the province indepen- dent, and formed a Provisional Government. They have also detained all Portuguese ships in the harbour, and seized all property belonging to the Portuguese as an indemnity, should any hostile measures be adopted towards them. The Camoens did not go in, she only lay off the port 24 hours to obtain water, and left it on the 17th of March, on which day a great firing was heard in the City, supposed between the troops that remained firm to the Government and those that joined the insurgents, as two regiments had not immediately gone over. " The Governor had been sent off unmolested. A Brigadier General and an Adjutant, is is said, were killed in attempting to take up some of the ringleaders, which brought on the insurrec- tion rather prematurely. Such are the reports in circulation ; but 1 cannot vouch for their au- thenticity. Several passengers have arrived in Ihe Camoens; some of them, it is said, sent off by the remaining party" " P. S. Foreign vessels were allowed free in- gress and egress, and the export duties 011 co- lonial produce reduced." CHINA. Private letters respecting the Chinese Embassy, state that the Emperor had issued several Edicts, which can only be considered as apologies and palliations of the rudeness of the dismissal of the Embassy, and as ex- cuses for an act originating in misrepresentations im- posed on the Emperor by some of his Ministers. A curious circumstance occurred at Canton on the first arrival of the Embassy. A Legate was sent from Ihe Emperor to deliver a " letter to Lord Amherst in- viting or permitting the Embassy to proceed to Pekin. A house had been prepared for the Embassy at Canton, and of course it was proposed that the Legate ( an office higher it seems than that of Vice Roy should then de- liver the letter, but this was declared to be inconsistent with tlie decorum due to the reccpt'on of an Imperial letter. A tent, properly decorated, was prepared for this ceremony, and a procession to the tent, was neces- sary. It was arranged that thev should walk two and two— the Legate and Lord Amhurst first, the highest Mandarine and Sir George Staunton, second, etc. & c. The Legate, for the purpose, as it is supposed, of stealing a little importance in the eyes of his countrymen, began to take long steps, and at last almost to run, that he might appear to take precedence of his Lordship, who, however, disappointed him, and kept his station in the race for dignity. When arrived in the tent, and seated with due for mality, a curious dialogue followed. The Legate expa- tiated on the benignity and condescension ofthe Sublime Head of the Celestial Empire, in not only permitting the present visit, but having so long permitted the English, who live wholly by trade, to carry on commerce with the Chinese, who are not traders- who have no need of commerce— and all this, that of his Imperial grace and compassion he might contribute to the happiness of a poor and helpless people I Lord Amherst begged to put the Legate right as to some of his notions, which he. informed him could only have been stated either from ignorance or from a wish to disguise the truth. He pro- ceeded to develop the principles of commercial inter- course and to demonstrate the reciprocal benefits re- sulting therefrom to the nations concerned in il, and proceeded to prove that the Chinese in particular were under many obligations to the British for benefits which they could never have enjoyed, had not tho King of England, in his love to his own people, and from a strong desire to benefit other nations, encouraged them to visit distant countries, and to confer on them, in return for products which they could not wholly consume them selves, the surplus ofthe industry of a great, a happy a free, and a powerful people. The Legate, perceiving the turn which the conversa- tion was taking, and that in the ears of the audience some truths were divulged which could not fail to lessen the self- importance ofthe Celestial Empire, made haste to terminate the ceremony. FROM THE MADRAS COURIER, JAN 23. Advices from Kohistan of the 5th Dec. state that Rungeet Sing left Nadoen on that day, on his return to Juwalamukhee- Moote Ram with a strong detach- ment, and Moondae had at length persuaded the Rajah of that place to adjust the claims against them. The payments also from the Rajah of Culoo were to be made immediately, and the army to recross the Noorpoor hills, and proceed to the Southward. According to the Ukbars, the mission of the Rajah of Jypore to Delhi has not yet been successful. Sunkur Das and Chuttur Das, the Vakeels entrusted with the negociations, after a discussion which lasted five days, had returned to Muttra on'the 2d December, to wait there a reference to the Supreme Government— the writer of the Ukbar has entered into a long exposition ( if the stipulations likely to be agreed upon by the two functionaries, chietly consisting of annual payments to the English Government, for expelling the invader, and restoring the Jypere State to tranquillity, but they are so loose and vague, that it would be useless to enume- rate them— the arrangements are said to be in a fair way. The Rajah of Joudpore had actually sent hoondees to the mount of two lacks of rupees to Meer Khan, on the condition that he would forthwith evacuate his country— tliev are, however, not payable till the enemy shall have passed the boundaries of the Joudpore terri- tory; in consequence Meer Khan had retired to a greater distance from the capital; it is further said, that Dowlut Rao Scindeah, and the two oppressed Rajahs, are closely connected by the lies of friendship, and have resolved on a simultaneous movement to crush the op- pressor. The troops of Rajah Bahander and Mahtate Khan had not, however, in any degree remitted the course of exaction and depredation they had been so long accustomed to pursue. Misr Gunesh Narrain, terrified by Ihe approaches of Mahtate Khan, had abandoned his Jagheer of Khoos. halghur, and transferred it to Dowlnt Rao Seindeah for some other possession in a different quarter. Dovvlnt Rao consequently sent a new Killedar to that place, and had thus cheated Mahtate Khan of the plunder he expected. EXTRAORDINARY PHENOMENON. Rheims, May 21.— Sunday had been rather stormy, the temperature hot to suffocation ; the weather, how- ever, cleared up towards evening and became calm, and about half past eleven there were observed in the sky circles of a purple red, which appeared the more striking from their being intersected by others of a deep dark colour. The red light reflected upon the tops of the houses, made the town look as if it was all in flames. This phenomenon ceased about mid- night, but re- appeared a little before day, in even a more ex- traordinary manner. The fiery circles discharged so vivid a light, that the persons in the street were terror struck ; some claps of thunder were heard, and imme- diately followed by an extraordinary fall of rain during two hours. ManyshowekS followed each other during the morning; when the sun appeared at intervals the heat was consuming. About half- past two au extremely dark cloud appeared upon our mountains; it moved with inconceivable rapidity from south to west; its noise is best compared to the rattling of a park of artillery driving at a quick trot over pavement. Just above the town the cloud burst with a horrible Crash ; there fell during five minutes a mass of hail the like of which was never seen. In an instant all the glass ofthe windows facing the south were, reduced to powder; several trees were torn from their roots, and ihe roofs of houses greatly damaged. Great fears were entertained that the country might have suffered from the liurricaue, and that its ravages might destroy the harvest, w hich is so much wanted ; but by a prodigious instance of good fortune, it passed a little- beyond the limits of the town. The vegetable gardens round tiie town are Vvholly destroyed, and the tumbling down of bells upon hot- beds has done some injury. We have to thank Providence for the escape of our vineyards. PRINCE REGENT'S LEVEE. Thursday the Prince Regent, held a Levee at Carleton House, which was numerously attend- ed. His Royal Highness received the compli- ments of the Foreign Ambassadors and Ministers, the Cabinet Ministers, the Great Officers of State, and those who have the privilege of the entree, including the Branches of the Royal Fa- mily, who were present.— Mr. J. Smith, Charge d'Affaires ofthe United States of America, was presented to the Regent by Earl Bathurst. The Russian Ambassador, and Prince Casteleicala, the Sicilian Minister, had audiences of the Prince Regent. Birth- Day of Mr. Pitt.— The Triennial Celebration of tiie birth- day of this Illustrious Statesman on Wednesday took place at Merchant Tailors' Hall, and il was in the highest degree gratifying to see that it was attended by a large assemblage of" the most distinguished characters that adorn this country and support its dignity. The following were among the most distin- guished visitors:— The Right Hon. ROBERT PEEL in the Chair ; The Lord Chancellor, Earls Westmoreland, Mul- grave, Lonsdale, Harewood, of St. Germain, Bathurst, of Bridgewater, of Dartmouth, Mountmorris, of Liver- pool— Lords Rolle, Castlecoote, Viscount Valentia, Apsley, William Beresford, Lascelles, Viscount Fitz- harris — Right Hons. George Rose, Wm. Dundas, C. Long, C. M. Sutton, Sir Wm. Scott, V. Fitzgerald, Sir G. F. Hill, J. M. Barry, D. Brown, Sir H. Russell, lit. Sir Christopher Robinson, Sir J. G. Cotterell, bart. Sir H. Ibbetson, bart. William Peel, esq. E. Peel, esq. G. Dawson, esq. S. R. Lushington, esq. the Rev. Dr. Hook, and many other Characters distinguished for learning, talents, and public merits. Norwich, May 20.- - The commemoration of the Birth- day of that great and much to be la- mented Statesman, the Right Hon. W. Pitt, was celebrated here yesterday, at the Assembly Rooms— 253 or 254 persons dined, and applica- tions were made for about 50 more tickets, which could not be admitted for want of room. Mr Edmond Wodehouse, our new Member, Col. Wodehouse, and many of the leading persons of the County attended, and it was proposed that the Norwich Pitt Clnb should be extended, and in future beconsidered as the Norwich and Norfolk Pitt Club—- in order to admit greater numbers ; the dinner, iu future, will take place at the Guildhall. Colonel Wodehouse is to be Chairman next year. ACCIDENTS, OFFENCES, > vc, Tuesday night, al Tothill fields Fair, a young woman, named Ellen M'Donnell, was thrown out of a swing, and struck by another adjoining, which cut her head and dreadfully bruised hei about the body. She was carried to the Wesl minster Infirmary in a senseless stale. No less than five others were brought in there under similar circumstanccs, with broken limbs and otherwise bruised. Bite of an Adder. a liov, about 12 or 14 Thursday was a day of considerable bustle in the City. Large orders were given for goods to South America, and several vessels were taken up for voyages to that part of the New World. It was also reported in the City on the same day, that there was a generalinsurrection throughout Spain ; but this report is not true.— In the mean time orders have been issued from the Admiralty for the equipment of six sail of the line and 12 frigates for a six months' cruize, which is under stood to be intended for South America. By the Correspondence between the Supreme Director of Buenos Avres and the Portuguese General Lecor, it would appear that the Portu- guese intended to avail themselves of the disseu- tions between Buenos Ayres and Artigas, in order to extend their dominion as far as Paraguay, and thus add a large and valuable territory to the Brazilian kingdom. This project, however, has been frustrated in a manner not altogether anti- cipated by the Brazilian Government. The Underwriters at Lloyd's have refused to insure all vessels from the Hanse Towns and Holland, in consequence of the Tunisian pri- vateers now infesting ihe Channel. The Lords ofthe Admiralty have given no opinion openlv as to the part they mean to take respecting these vessels. Earthquake in Sicily.—' The Notizie del Gi- orno, a Journal printed at Rome, has the fol- lowing article :—" They write from Palermo, that in consequence of a shock of an earth quake, the sea has retired frfim the shore— that the cold is excessive— that they heard in the air frightful bowlings, and that large murky spots were seen almost to blot the. face of the Sun. These phenomena have excited much terror among the inhabitants ; and in truth, the vari- ations of the seasons, which have been remarked this year all over Europe seem to announce some revolutions in the Planetary system, which want a natural and satisfactory explanation. Private letters from Naples confirm the news oi an extraordinary eruption of Mount Etna, and announce, in a positive manner that the little town of Nicosi has been covered with lava, and fears were entertained even for the town ot Catano." The following is an extract ofa letter from Halifax, dated April 20;—" We believe we are correct in saying, that for 20 years we have not bad in this province so severe a winter; and never, in the recollection of the oldest settlers, has there been such serious distress, as we are sorry to s< jy, is the case now; and that very great apprehensions are entertained on the subject." The late Mrs. Jordan.— Letters of Admini stration of the effects of this celebrated Actress passed the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, in Doctors Commons, on Saturday last, the 24th instant. The property was sworn under 3001. The following is a correct statement of the will ofthe late Right Hon. Sir A. Thomson Knt. Lord Chief Baron of his Majesty's Court of Exchequer, & c. & c. which was registered in the Prerogative Office, Doctor's Commons, on the 14th inst. To his Clerk. Mr. Bellamy, he bequeaths the sum of £ 300 his gold stock buckle and sleeve buttons, to be worn in remem- brance of him; to his servants five guineas each ; and all other effects whatsoever to his sister Mary Thomson, spinster, whom he ap pointed sole executrix. She died during the testator's life- time, and in consequence, admini- stration, with the will annexed, was granted to Isabella Reid Thomson and Elizabeth Reid Thomson, spinsters, his nieces, and only next of kin. The will is in his own hand- writing, dated at Bath, the 22d of May 1790, and with- out witnesses. The Society of St. Peter's College, Cambridge, have just received an unexpected and magnifi- cent present of £ 20,000. from an unknown bene- factor. The Master and Fellows lately received letters requesting their attendance in London to receive the satne. At the time and place ap- pointed, they met the agent of the donor, who, after regaling them with a handsome dinner, transferred the above sum for the use of the Society for ever, saying it came from a gentle man; aged 94, but w hose name would not be known till after his decease. The reason assigned forlhe gift is the legacy duty being thus avoided. The College, it is said, intend to apply the in- terest ofthe money towards founding some new Scholarships, and augmenting the income of some of their Fellowships. A list of all the publications entered at Stationers' Ilall since the 9th of June, 1815, the date of the last return, has been printed by order of the House of Commons. It fills 20 folio pages closely printed. Of these publica- tions there are, at least, three- fourths of which copies have been demanded for the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Sion College, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, St. Andrew's, and Trinity College, Dublin; ami for the Libraries of the Faculty of Advocates, Edinburgh, and the King's Inns, Dublin The Advocates' Library and Trinity College alone decline claiming copies of music and novels. The above are the only learned bodies entitled to demand copies of all publications entered at Stationers' Hall. M. Biot, a learned member of the " French Institute ofthe Academy of Sciences," and well known bv bis curious researches relative to the polarization of light, has come to this country for the purpose of accompanying Col. Mudge, I he conductor ot ihe Trigonometrical Survey, on a philosophical expedition to the Orkneys. M. Biot is now making experiments on the length of the seconds'pendulum, al Edinburgh ; while Col. Mudge, and his able assistant, Capt. Colby, are measuring a base of versification near Aberdeen. The several operations at Edinburgh and Aber- deen are expected to be terminated about the middle of June ; when, it is said, the party will be joined by Dr. Gregory, ofthe Royal Military Academy, Woolwich, and the whole proceed to the Orkneys, for the purpose of carrying on sim- ultaneously the requisite astronomical observa- tions connected with the Trigonometrical Sur- vey, anil the experiments that relate to the vi- brations of pendulums. The joint processes, conducted at so high a latitude, may be expected to throw considerable light upon that curious class of of problems which regard the figure of the earth. It is reported that a bargeman of the name of Franckland, residing at Wallingford, has con- fessed himself the murderer of Mr. Longuet, of Reading, and that he afterwards destroyed the notes; he says that he took off his clothes to do the bloody deed, and hid them. On Wednesday mornin" years of age, who said tl'. at his name was Ryan, son of Mr. Ryan, Iron Founder, of Iron Foundry lane, Edgware- road, went to Wormwood Scrubbs, to witness the Pedestrians in the performance of the extra- ordinary match; and having roved from bis friends lo the Common, where some soldiers were exercising, he unfortunately trod upon an adder, which sprung at him, and fastened him by the small of bis leg; lie was in extreme pain, and in a short time his leg was swelled and inflamed to a shocking degree. He was taken, by the first conveyance, to the Middlesex Hospital, where be has undergone surgical operation, but continues in a most dangerous situation. Daring Highway Rubbery. — Between 11 and 12 o'clock, on Friday night as John Bowers Willoughby, servant to Morelon Barrett, Esq. 73, Baker- street, Portman- squarc, was returning from Hyde Park, he was accosted nearly opposite Grosvenor- gate by two fellows, who asked him if he had a watch'? he answered in the affirmative, upon which they knocked him down and began to rifle his pockets; he called murder," and " watch " and one of them grasped him violently bv the throat, and attempt- ed to strangle him ; be made a desperate Strug gle, iu which he partly disengaged himself; they then took his gold watch from his pocket, value 40Z. and walked away ; he was too weak to make any pursuit, but being informed that a man had been taken up for disorderly con duct about the same time and place, he went to see him in the watch- house, and identified him as one of those that robbed him ; he was taken before the magistrates, and gave his name John Croxford ( better known as Crockey, the boxer); the constable went to the house of ano- ther man, supposed to be his accomplice and observed blood on the collar and lappets of his jacket, but in consequence of the prosecutor's inability to swear to his person, he was not ap prehended. The other is fully committed for trial. The Manchester Herald says—" Monday three Jews concerned in an attempt to swindle several tradesmen out of goods to a very con- siderable amount ( one house as much as £ 6000), were committed for trial at the next Quarter Sessions. Two of them, resident at Manchester, were bailed out for appearance ; but the third ( the principal), who passed himself off for a Russian Jew, remains in the New Bailey prison." The four men who stand charged with the murder at Pendleton, near Manchester were last Friday morning sent off ( strongly ironed) from theNew Bailey Prison to Lancaster Castle, iri pursuance of the warrant of the Coroner. The crowds who assembled on the road to see the miserable beings are described to have been very great, particularly in the towns of Bolton and Preston ; and at Lancaster, such was the indignation of the populace that it was only with very considerable exertion, and by threats, that Mr. Nadin, who conducted them to prison, preserved the wretched criminals from the sum- mary vengeance of the People. The whole of the gang which committed the robberies in the houses of Mr. Hanson of Rost- rick, and Mr. Shaw of Lingards near Hudders field have been taken. Two of them ( Mickle- thwaite and Garside) were hanged at the York Assizes, and three of them ( Millington, Taylor and Smithies) were transported. On the 27th ult. Mr. Nadin took up John Howarth, alias Jack o'th' Hole) and last Monday night be took James Shaw the last ofthe gang in the old Turnpike- house, near Eccles; and on Tuesday conveyed him to Huddersfield, when he was directly com- mitted to York. This last prisoner is descri- bed to be an astonishingly powerful man, whose strength and appearance were sufficient to affright any common Police Officer from the discharge of his duty. Murder.— Early yesterday morning( Tuesday) the body ofa respectable young female of the name of Mary Ashford, residing at Erdington Slade, was found in a pit ot water near Penn's Mills, in the parish of Sulton Coldfield, in this county, having several marks of violence upon her person, which it is supposed were the cause of her death. A young man of respectable connexions, who had been in company with her the evening before, is in custody on suspicion of having committed the above horrid deed. The unfortunate female w as in Ihe habit of attending our market, and, we believe, so late as Monday last, llie day previous lo the murder, stood near the Castle- Inn, in High- street. — Birmingham Paper, May 28. Police- Offlce, Dublin.— On Sunday, the 11th instant, a cow, belonging to Mr. W. Ryder, of Manor- street, was stolen off his lands at Cabra; on its being reported to him, he diligently ex- erted himself to discover her and the thieves, but without effect. On Thursday, however, a dog belonging to Mr. Ryder brought a horn home, to a house belouging to one ol his labour- ers, oil the land, which Mr. R. on seeing, in- stantly knew to be one of the horns of the cow stolen from him. On Friday he went with two dogs and searched the ad joining fields ; after a considerable time beating about, the dog who brought home the horn the evening before, made a set at an old Quarry hole, which Mr. Ryder observing, repaired to ihe spot, and feeling sa- tisfied the beef must be there, had the brick bats and rubbish cleared away, and after some la- bour, discovered a barrel at a very considerable depth under the rubbish, covered with a barrel head and a large sod over it. On opening it the beef, tongue, and heart were found regu- larly salted. The barrel was fully identified by Mr. Harris, a respectable gardener, living in that neighbourhood, and had been stolen from him two or three nights previous.— There was a large heap of sand in the centre of the same field, and oil examining it they found the hiden feet and entrails.

Mr. Dyson, the Clerk, said lie bad to inform the House that he had received a letter from the Speaker, which, with the leave ofthe House, he would read. " Palace- yard, May 30. " Sir— It is with the sincerest concern and regret that I feel myself obliged to request that you will inform the House of Commons, at their meeting this day, ofmy in- ability, from continued illness, to attend any longer upon their service. " After holding the high office to which I have been raised by their favour, in five successive. Parliaments, it is impossible that I should resign so honourable and distinguished a situation, without feeling the deepest gtatitude forthe constant kindness with which they have been pleased to accept an « jassist my humbleendeavours to discharge its various and arduous duties. " It was my earnest wish and hope to have continued longer in the service of the House, if such were their pleasure; but the interruption of public business which lias been already occasioned by my state of health, and the apprehension of the same cause recurring, which might again expose the House to the like inconvenience, have made ine deem it necessary that I should retire at this time, and have left me now no farther duty to per- form than to return my heartfelt acknowledgments to the House forall the favours they have bestowed upon me, and to express my fervent wishes for the perpetual maintenance and preservation of its rights, its privi- leges, and its independence— I am. Sir, always most truly yonrs, " CHARLES ABBOT." " To Jeremiah Dyson, Esq. Deputy Clerk of the House of Commons." Lord Castlereagh made a few observations in a tone of voice scarcely audi hie. The Noble Lord was understood to sa'v, that from the communication now read, the House, as well as he, inii3t have felt the loss which they sustained by the resignation of their Speaker. On this subject he was sure'here could be no difference of opinion, and lie felt it to be quite unnecessary to dwell on the merits ot the Speaker, which were so long and so well known. He would merely propose that the House adjourn till Monday next, when it was piobablc lie should have a communication from the Prince Regent, marking ' he estimation in which the Speaker was held by that illustrious person; aud when the House could proceed to the election ofa new Speaker. — Adjourned till Monday. SATURDAY'S LONDON GAZETTE. Whitehall, May 31, 1817.

Bonald on Madame Krudner, the German prophetess, had given offence. These are the words : " 1 cannot think, therefore, thai " religion approves the zeal of Madame Krudner ; "' but policy ( la politique) suffers it; ar. d it has, " 110 doubt, good reasons,— it wishes, perhaps, *' to make a last experiment upon the reason and '* the virtue of the people, at the expense of to " whomsoever it may appertain." There is much obscurity in this passage certainly; and therefore the mischief Contained in it, if there is any, would be the less likely to be mischiev- ous: or, if the other passage be the obnoxious one, the suspension of a journal, for calling the press enslaved, is the inverse method, we sup- pose, of proving it free. The French Papers announce the death of the once famous, but since notorious, Cardinal de Maury, who expired at Rome in the night be- tween the 10th and 11th of May, ofthe conse- quences of a scrofulous disorder, in his 7lst year. Tiie business before Parliament has suffered another interruption by the continuance or re- lapse of the indisposition of the Speaker, who, as will be seen in our report of parliamentary proceedings, addressed a letter to the Deputy Clerk of the House of Commons on Friday, to be read to the Members, containing his resigna- tion of his office, on account ot his ill health.— During tlie long time that he has sitten in the chair, in the rank which Mr. Burke called of the first gentleman of England," he has dis- placed not only his own great native talents, but a peculiar and appropriate description of mannerand talents precisely adapted to the bene ficial and honourable execution of his important duties. His regularity, his> accuracy, his pro- found knowledge of the practice of Parliament, his impartiality manifested on all occasions, whether the forms of the House imposed on him the duties of its Speaker, or gave him the pri- vilege of voting as an individual Member; his general courteous behaviour; the firmness which he always manifested in arduous circumstances; in fine, his unremitting attention to the due dis- charge of his functions, made an equally favour- able impression, and excited an equal esteem among members of all political parties. Nobody has complained of the titles and money granted to the heroic Duke of Wellington. None can justlv find fault with any honourable or pecu- niary reward that may be given to Mr. Abbot. In point of rank and honour, it will be 6cen that, after his laborious season ofactiver service, his more advanced years will be crowned with autumnal glories. In last night's Gazette it ap pears he is called up to the House of Peers, with the title of Lord Colchester. Mr. Manners Sutton ( Judge Advocate), it is generally supposed, will be the new Speaker. He is a man of under- standing and acquirements, and of polished man- ners. He will, we believe, be the first instance of an existing Archbishop of Canterbury's son obtaining such an honour. Some say that Mr. C. Wynne will also be proposed; and, it is ad ded, that a similar proposition will be made in favour of Mr. Jonathan Raine. AGRICULTURAL REPORT FOR MAY. The continuance of the dry weather through the. early part of last month, in addition to tliatof the month pre ceding, lias brought forward the winter crops into tin appearance of good promise upon most of the tenacioii- soils. The wheat plants have tillowed well, and art filling np the void spaces caused bv the injured and imperfect state ofthe seed, in consequence ofthe last wet harvest. Great breadths promise much more than they did one month back ; they are not only improved in quantity of stem, but the colour of the flag is more promising of a fruitful produce. Some small pieces have been ploughed up and sown with spring corn, which the dry weather has prevented from coming up so kindly as might have been expected. The barley crop upon all knotty and friable soils has a very indifferent appearance, not more than one third of the seed having- vegetated, having 110 April showers, aud the rain not cOmingtill about the twentieth of May The barley crop must therefore be a very irregular one of two growths. Oats from the same cause, the extreme dry weather, and the indifferent quality of the seed, have not so good an appearance as to promise a full crop. Beans and peas have very much improved, but the crop will have plenty of room from plant to plant to corn well. The young clover is a forward and full crop. The soiling species are yielding plenty of green food, and the turnip fallows are in a more forward state of good culture, than can be recollected in any preceding year. Apples and hops promise well. FASHIONS FOR JUNE. Walking Dress.— The Gloucester Spencer, made in a very novel style, with rose coloured satin, the sleeves are open all down the front, with scolloped work, which is trimmed with blond, small buttons embellish the sleeve, the Cliffs are also scollop worked. An Indian muslin petticoat, richly flounced, and trimmed with English lace .— The Gloucester gipsey bat, made ofrose- coloured satin, decorated wilha bunch of roses. General Observations on Fashion and Dress.— Morning dresses are made of cambric, ornamented with a rich embroidery of Vandyke open work. Dresses for morning visits of ceremony, or friendly dinner parties, are made of the new patriotic Spitalfields silk; the favourite colour of which is violet. A white satin slip for evening parties is highly ad- mired; it is elegantly bordered in festoons of figured gauze and ribband; the gauze white, the ribband the colour of the purple evening primrose, with an elegant body formed from ribband the cross way ; this is of purple evening primrose. Spencers are becoming very general, and are chiefly made of slight figured satin, or brocaded silk; the trimming round the throat is of a peculiar kind, formed of the same material as the spencer, relieved by spring green satin, in the form of cockleshells: pelisses do not loose their pre- eminent station at this time of the year; they are all of a most beautiful violet colour, triped with white, and trimmed with spotted shag silk of correspondent colours. The head- dresses consist much of turbans and French caps ; the latter are made chiefly of white or blue satin, ornamented with either beads or tulle, and have a full group of flowers placed directly in front. Striped ribbands of eveiy colonr on white. are much in favour ; but the colours most in requisition are violet, Mexican blue, spring green, rose colour, and evening primrose. Tonbridge Benefit Societies..— The Members of the above excellent institutions, according to annual cus- tom, assembled on Whit- Monday, at their respective " lub- houses, one from the Angel, established in 1772, was escorted to church by the Edenbridge choir, ami instrumental performers; the, other from the Chequers hy another band, when a most excellent discourse, very impressive, aud suitable 10 the occasion, was de- livered by the Rev. M. Benson, of Tonbridge Wells, to an excessive crowded audience, from Hebrews, chap. 13, ver. 1, " Let Brotherly Love continue." - After the service, each society partook ofa good dinner; neat ly 200 sat down at the Angel, aud were joined bv about I0(> of the principal inhabitants of Ihe town and neigh- bourhood, spending the day with the utmost decorum, order and enjoyment. Lord CLIFTON, son of the Ear1 of DARNLEY, will, i is said, offer himself for the county of Meath, at the next general election. On Saturday se'nnight, the 2d battalion of the 67th regiment were disbanded in Canterbury, and a propor- tion of the most serviceable men transferred to the 1st battalion. On this occasion, a complimentary ad- dress, in the shape of a regimental order, bv Lieut | Col. Davison, was read to the battalion previous to its dissolution. Upwards of 600 men and officers embarked on Mon- day, at Gravesend, for Ceylon. Monday, 120 men, of the 18th regiment, disembarked from the Cockburn transport, lying in the Medway, from Jamaica, and joined their regiment, stationed at Chatham. Talma, the celebrated French Actor, and his wife, landed at Dover, on Monday night, and immediately set off for London. A Court of Common Council was held on Thursday, for the purpose of taking into consi- deration the propriety of presenting petitions to Parliament against the Renewal of the Habeas Corpus Suspension Act, and to adopt such other measures as might be deemed expedient A se ries of Resolutions were proposed ami carried bv a large majority, and a Committee was ap- pointed to prepare the Petitions. A Common Hall was also held 011 Friday for the same purpose, when several Resolutions were proposed and adopted, and a Petition unani mously agreed to. A letter from Lexington ( Kentucky), says, the river rose above its usual level upwards of BO feet perpendicular, in the beginning of April, inconsequence of an incessant torrent of rain for four days and nights.

May 2fi, suddenly, Mr. Kendall, of Wingham, aged 71, The deceased, in company with his wife, had been to Chillenden to spend the day with some friends, and was returning home in the evening in perfect health, when Mrs. K. who was walking before, finding her husband did not follow her, returned hack, and found that he had dropped down in a fit, when he almost in- stantly expired. The deceased was a most affectionate father and good husband, and his loss will be severely felt by his numerous relatives and friends.

Cosby, and eldest sister of Lady Le Despencer Lately, at Northiam, Mr. Willison Childs, aged 38, much respected by all who knew him. He retained his memory, and could walk several miles a dav until the last year of his. life. Paris Papers to Friday last have been received in town. The publication of the Journal des Debris of tiie 2yth was suspended by the Mini- ster of Police; it is a matter of debate Tor what cause : some think that it is on account of the expression, " enslaved press" ( presse esclave), used in the journal of Tuesday, the 27th : others, Attempt to Break out of Newgate. On Friday a woman who was in the habit of going to visit a prisoner in Newgate who had been sentenced to death, hilt who was respited at the time ofthe last re- port, and ordered to be transported for life, was stop- ped to be searched at the outer door. Upon her per- son was found a small bottle containing either spirits of salts or aquafortis. In consequence of this detection which of course created a suspicion that an attempt to break prison was meditated, arrangements were made to defeat the plan. The confidential persons were or- dered to be on the alert, and they succeeded in prevent- ing the object of 25 ofthe most desperate villains in Newgate. At about 8 o'clock in the eveningthe watch men at the top of the prison heard a noise, which tliey thought proceeded from the ward on the north side. Tliey reported their suspicions to Mr. Brown, keeper of Newgate, who immediately went to the north ward, which contained the most desperate characters, who, upon bis entrance, appeared to be asleep. He called out to them, but no answer was returned, except a loud snoring. Upon examining the wall, however, he found that they must have been very busy in their sleep A number of bricks bad been removed, and the stone- work, which it would indeed have required great labour and perseverance to penetrate, was almost reached, Still the 25 convicts shammed sleep, and Mr. Brown, upon searching the ward, found under the head of one of the ringleaders three long pieces of iron, which appeared to have been the instruments used in breaking the prison. The instruments were shaped exactly like those which ladies usually wear in their stays, and must have been brought into prison by some female, who perhaps, for the first time in her life, was anxious to be in the fashion. Having removed all means of attack or defence from the ward. Mr. Brown ordered the 25 convicts to be locked in, obtained several watchmen from St. Sepulchre's watch- house, put additional guards onevery part of the prison, and surrounded it with men, who received- particular direction upon any appear- ance of external violence. All was quiet during the night. At 8 in the morning the 25 convicts began to make a tremendous row. They cried out for their pri- vilege of visiting the yard, and it was thought- advisable to open the ward. They rushed down and broke all fhe windows they could reach; but the exertions of the officers soon quelled the riot. Five of the ringleaders, named Abrahams, Hiet, Hallard, Clarke, and Tree, were seized, double- ironed, and placed in separate cells. By this time the Lord Mayo rand Sheriffs, to whom Mr. Brown had sent messengers, arrived. All the convicts who were supposed to be concerned in the attempt to break prison were examined before his Lordship. They admitted that it was their intention to escape if they could ; that they knew if they did not work themselves out they would go over the water for life, and that they would, upon any future opportunity, make an effort. of the same kind. They were tben disposed of, according to their several merits, in the cells, and it was expected that an order w ould come down for their removal to ttft ship iu which they will take their departure. Entertainment to Talma the Tragedian.— The principal actors of Covent- gardeu theatre propose to give a dinner to this celebrated French actor as a testimony of the high opinion- they entertain of his talenls. It is to be held al the Caledonian- hotel in Bond- street, on Sunday next, and is restricted to the number of twenty. On Friday eveniug, when Mr. Kemble appear- ed in the character of Posthumus, Talma, the French tragedian, sat in one of the side boxes near the stage, in company with three French ladies. He paid the utmost attention to the whole performance. lie had a book ofthe play in his hand, wl. ich he generally read while the performers spoke; but when Mr. Kemble came on the stage, he viewed him very attentively with an opera glass, and seemed to take great interest in his acting. When the play was over he left the box with his friends, and proceeded through one of the private passages to the Green- room. M. Talma has a very expressive and interesting countenance; his eyes abound with animation and intelligence. His face is rather of a brown- ish colour, having none of the florid fairness of an Englishman, and has something of that rough- ness to which the epithet weather beaten is ge- nerally applied. His hair, which is quite black does not lie flat upon his head, but is rather bushy. He appears to be about 50 years of age, ofthe middle size, and has a slight stoop in his shoulders. There is much sedateness and gravity in his manner; he was plainly dressed in black ; anil, except iu the complexion of his face, appears in every respect like an English gentleman.— Guardian. ——— Quarter Sessions are generally occupied in trials fori sault, the offspring of vulgar passions and drinking", lit it has lately appeared that this tendency to assault s become so infectious, that it is in contemplation to ion the Court in fiitm e with the preventive ceremony binding over the Barristers to their good behaviour! Saturday se'nnight, an extensive seizure was made a soap house at Deptford; some resistance was ap- prehended, and a file of soldiers was ordered lo pro- tect the officers. A short time since, the committee- room in the work- house of the parish of St. John, Margate, was broken into, and the account books stolen therefrom : altho' a reward of <£ 20 has been offered by the new church- warden and overseers, the perpetrators remain undis- covered. Some of the books have been found in a mutilated state near the house. Robbing Gardens.— A few days since a man convicted of robbing a garden near Birmingham, was ordered by the Magistrates to lie whipped. We mention this punish- ment in the hope that it may prove a salutary warning to depredators of asimilar description in our own neigh- bourhood. Commitments to the County Gaol, since our last.

Bags continue very dull sale. To the Editor of the MAIDSTONE JOURNAL SIR, As the rage for Building Houses seems to be one order of the day here, and the rage for calling upon the Inhabitants to pay for the same another, permit me through the Channel of yonr Newspaper, to ask one single question": perhaps amongst the number of Limbs of the Law, now residing in this town, some one may be good enough to give an answer, for which 1 am sure be will have the thanks of all his neighbours: if it fortunately should be favourable, I think it will prove a salutary check to the present ruinous ar. d extravagant system, which carries desolation and destruction into every Tradesman's shop who wishes to pay his debts. Your's, & c. Maidstone, May 31, 1817. A. B. Is a Magistrate justified in granting a warrant to seize goods and sell them for the payment of the POOR'S RATES, when he knows that a great part of the money, collected for that purpose, is expended in unnecessary Buildings ? We have the pleasureto announce, as we anticipated in 0111- Journal of the 22d of April, that Mrs. QUICK'S Concert, of Thursday week last, under the patronage of H. R. H. the Princess Charlotte of Wales, at the Hanover- Square Rooms, was allowed to be the most diversified and pleasing of any that has taken place during the season. Mrs. Q. resumes giving Inst ructions on the Piano Forte to her highly distinguished Pupils in this neighbourhood, sooner than was expected, ill consequence of the families leaving town earlier than usual. Wednesday evening, as the dairy maid of the Earl of Romney was returning from Maidstone to the Mote, she was assaulted near Pole Mill, by a footpad, who, after using horrid threats, rifled her pockets of 18s. and afterwards decamped with bis booty. Friday night or early on Saturday morning, the house of Mr. Hartnup, near Banning Heath, was forcibly- entered by some person or persons unknown, who stole therefrom several tilvei tea spoons, and divers other articles.

Smugglers.— Early on Saturday morning three smug- gling boats ran their cargoes in safety at three distinct parts of the const between Brighton and Lancing, not- withstanding the increased numbers and vigilance of the Officers and military. No less than 21 Officers are stationed between Brighton and Shoreham, besides the soldiers; and yet, with all their unceasing watchfulness by night and day along the coast, these daring smug- glers contrive to fix the appointed time and place to run their cargoes ashore, where a foreman of the com- pany plants 40 or 50 men in ambush to convey the tubs of spirits to hiding places.— It has been known that 300 tubs are safely removed in less than 20 minutes.
