Madrid June 24.— A grand Light- house has just been finished at Malaga. It is 155^ Spa- nish feet of Castille from above the leVel of the We copy with great pleasure from a Man- chester Paper, received on Wednesday morning, the following cheering article:— " Manchester, July 8.— Most sincerely do we congratulate-' our readers 0n the every day meliorating situation of this country. The sea- sons are pulling forth the promise if luxuriant and productive crops, and reviving trade is fur- nishing employment for the industrious classes. It is true, in this district, some of them are la- boring for comparatively low wages; but prices will increase as the demand for goods becomes steady from a regular trade ; whilst on the other hand, the money earned will be of more real value, from the fall in the price of the necessa- ries of life, which the hoped for abundant har- vest, will certainly occasion. The very low wages of weavers have occurred, in part, from the circumstances which are attendant on the sudden return from a state of warfare lo one of peace,— for an unpreparetl- for change, from one of these national situations to another, is always productive of great convulsions in the commer- cial world,— and in part, from the humanity of individuals, who, by forcing sales, at great sa- crifices, have been enabled to give employment to thousands, who otherwise would have been left totally destitute, and to whom even inade quate Compensation was of vital consequence for the preservation of present existence, in order to be in readiness to enjoy the future comforts, which we sincerely hope, and earnestly believe, are now nearly ready to bless the patient sufferers under the late privations. We cherish this hope, not only from the generally amended state of all the other manufacturing districts, where iron, wool, etc. are the bases of the articles in which their population is employed, but also from the very generally decreased stocks of manufactured cotton goods in this market, and from the very small quantity of good yarns, both twist and weft, of low numbers ( say up to 50s.) which are now warehoused. From an informant, upon whose correctness we can rely, we venture to state, that there is not one- fourth of the yarn, of the above description, in the market which might have been purchased at one time, three or four years ago. This, we believe, is not a bad criterion of the prosperity of the manufac- turing interest; and we are happy to lay it be- fore such of our readers as may not be acquainted with the fact, though a majority of them are fully aware of the much greater number of opera- tive weavers, & c. employed in fabricating goods from such numbers, than are engaged in manu- facturing from the finer descriptions of yarn, the prices of which are always affected, in a greater or less degree, by the demand for the former."— Manchester Herald. IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT. Gen. Vigodet, a Frenchman by birth, has been nominated Captain- General of New Cas- tille, iu the room of Gen. Eguia, the new Mini- ster of War. Vigodet was sent to bring the Queen from Rio Janeiro. The Marquis of Campo Sangrado, Gen. Eguia's predecessor in the War Ministry has been ordered by the King to retire to Valencia, lie retires on a pension of 6000 francs. Notwithstanding the publication of the new plan of Finance and the severe orders which have been given to secure its execution, the royal vales continue to fall. They have lost 7J per cent, within these few days. M. Garay meets with fresh obstacles everyday. Barcelona, June 25.— The affair of General Lacy draws towards a close. It appears that our Captain General has received fresh instruc- tions from the new Minister of War. The Coun- cil of War will assemble to- day, and will decide before it separates. Gen. Castanos himself pre- sides. If the accused be condemned to death, or any infamous punishment, the sentence must be submitted to the King for his approbation, it is only in case of an acquittal that this cere- mony is unnecessary. In two days, therefore, the fate of Lacy will be decided. The number of persons implicated exceeds fifty, but they are all subaltern Officers. Some persons are still of opinion lliat the intelligence of Lacy's sen- tence may reach Madrid at a most favourable epoch, namely, at the moment of the Queen's giving a son to his Majesty. Official accounts have been received by the Admiralty, from Admiral Sir E. Thornborough, K. C. B. Commander in Chief of his Majesty's ships and vessels at Portsmouth ; whence appears, that Captain Donald, who arrived at Portsmouth on Saturday night in the ship Daw- son, reported to the Admiral, that his Majesty's ship Aleeste, Capt. Maxwell, struck upona rock in the Straits of Caspar, near Sunda, about the end of February, and immediately went doivn scarcely allowing time to save the British Em Death of Mr. Ponsonby.— We feel much re- gret in stating, that the melancholy apprehen- sions respecting this Gentleman were confirmed by his departure on Tuesday morning, at ten minutes past six o'clock. The late Right Hon. George Ponsonby was born on the 5th of March 1775. He was appointed Lord High Chancel- lor of Ireland March 23 180( 5, which office he resigned. He was Member for Tavistock. He was married on the 18th of May 1781 to Lady Mary Butler eldest daughter of Brinsley, the second Earl of Belvedere, by whom be bad se veral offspring. lie was highly esteemed in private life, as well as iu the important office w hich be filled in Ireland". As the leader of opposition he held forth a laudable example of dignified manners, temperate eloquence power- ful reasoning, illustrated by extensive learning, and an exemption from the narrow spirit of Party. Death of the Duke of Northumberland.— This distinguished Nobleman died at Northumberland House on Thursday morning at 5 o'clock. His Grace bad been four years a marlvr to the gout, and for several weeks past had been considerably indisposed, but was recently supposed to be better, and his death at last was rather unex- pected. The Duchess and his sons, Earl Percy and Lord Prudhoe, were, however, with him at the time of bis death. His complaint latterly was supposed to be a species of rheumatic gout. His Grace's Titles and Offices were — Hugh Percy Duke of Northumberland, Earl Percy, Baron Warkworth of Warkworth Castle, Baron Percy, Lucy, Poynings, Fitzpayne, Bryan, and Latimer, a Baronet, a General in the Army, Knight of the Garter, Lord Lieutenant and Vice- Admiral of Northumberland and Newcastle- upon Tyne, and Constable of Launceston Castle, F. R. S. and F. S. A. ; born 25th August, 1742, his Grace was therefore in the 75th year ol' his age. He succeeded his father, Hugh, the late Duke, 6th Jane, 1786 ; married first, 2d July 1764, Lady Ann Stuart, third daughter of John third Earl of Bute, by whom he had no bassy, the Officers and crew: no lives, however jssne> a„ d which marriage was dissolved by Act were lost; although the presents and every other article on board went to the bottom with the vessel. The Clytus, from Bahia, is arrived at Fal- mouth. She sailed on the 4th of May, and on the llth spoke a French vessel from Pernam- buco, which informed her, that the Royalists were in possession of Pernambuco. We have little doubt that the Insurgents will be put down ; but we must observe, upon the information com- municated by the French vessel, that the Mail from the Brazils, which arrived last Thursday, left Rio Janeiro on the 4th of May, and Bahia, on the 17th, at which time no account ofthe capture of Pernambuco by the Royalists had been received. Now, an event that had hap- pened at Pernambuco before the lltli would probably have been known at Bahia by the 17th. Bahia is not more than 400 miles from Per- nambuco. It is now strongly suspected that the Lisbon conspirators had some understanding either with the Government, or a party in Spain, for in the Proclamations found in General Frier's posses- sions, we learn that the Portuguese people were told " not to be alarmed at the approach of Spanish troops towards their frontiers, for tlia" they came as friends." The above General was confined in the Castle of St. Julians, and he had lately requested Don Miguel Forjas to be allow- ed to make some important communications to Marshal Beresford, adding, that whatever might be his own fate, he had that of his country a heart. of Parliament in 1770. He married, secondly, May 25, 1779, Frances Julia Burrell, third daughter of Peter Burrell, Esq. of Beckenham, Kent, sister to the Marchioness of Exeter, the Countess of Beverley, and Lord Gwydir, by whom lie had issue five daughters, three of whom are dead, and one is married to Lord James Murray second son of the Duke of Athol, and two sons Hugh Earl Percy, born April 20, 1785, now Duke of Northumberland, who was some time since called up to the House of Lords to sit for the Barony of Percy, and Algernon, born Dec. 15, 1702, lately created a Peer by the title of Lord Prudhoe. The Duke of Northumberland has been uni- formly distinguished by the mos't munificent liberality, and his loss will no doubt be deeply felt. The present Duke was recently married to a daughter of the Earl of Powis. Nautical Discoveries.— Lieut. John Couch, of the Royal Navy, has invented the following Nautical Instruments:— A Celestial Gyrograph, magnetically constructed, which gives the true bearings, rising, sitting, and cul- minating of forty of the principal fixed stars, tor any hour and minute of the twenty- four. A Gyrontic Gonophore, for more accurately survey- ing, either at sea or on shore, and with more expedition HOUSE OF COMMONS, MONDAY, July 7,1817. Tile following Bills were read a third time and passed: — The Colliery and Cutlery Labourers' Wages Bill, the English Saving Banks' Bill ( after a few Observations from General Thornton), the Irish Saving Banks' Bill, Ihe Exchequer Deputy Remembrancer's Regulation Bill, Ihe Frame- breaking prevention Bill, tlie Militia Pay Bill, the Irish Lunatic Asylum Bill, the Naval Asylum Bill, the Bank Tokens Stoppage Bill, the East India Goods Removal Bill, the Coal and Culm Bill, the Supply Appropriation Bill, Dyott's Divorce Bill, and the Hackney Coach Licence Bill. STEAM PACKETS Mr. Harvey, on presenting the Report of the Com- mittee on this subject, stated that it was their opinion that there ought to be the same regulations to ensure the safety of the vessel as on board ships of war ; that the safety- valve ought to be under particular regu- lations; and that no boat of this kind should be legal till examined by an engineer, to see tlrat their boilers, & c. be made of wrought instead of cast metal. He concluded by moving for leave to bring iVi a Bill foi' the better regulation of Steam Packets.— Leave was given, and the Bill brought up and read a first time. LUNATICS. Mr. Bennett moved for an account of the number of places licensed to received Lunatics in every county in England and Wales, and the number of Lunatics confined therein.— Motion agreed to.— Adj. TUESDAY. Mr. Bennett moved for a Return of the Houses li- censed in England and Wales for the reception of Lunatics, the names of the persons keeping them, and the number of persons confined in each, together with the time each individual has been in confinement. Mr. W. Smith presented a Petition from certain Unitarians of Kent and Sussex, praying to be relieved from particular disabilities and restraints tinder which they at present laboured. Ordered to lie on the table. Lord Binning moved for leave to bring in a Bill for the better providing for the care of Lunatics in Scot- land. Leave was given, the Bill brought in, tead a first time, and ordered to be printed. The Steam Packet Regulation Bill was read a second time, committed, the Report received, and ordered to be taken into further consideration this day three months, and to be printed. Mr. Bennett brought up a Report from the Police Committee; Tlie Hon. Member, in moving that the Report should lie on the table, said, the Committee had thought it right to divide this Report into two classes, one of which particularly related to Parliamentary Re- wards, and the other to the punishment of Juvenile Offenders. The Committee considered that the re- wards at present existing, usually known by the name of blood- money, were inducements to perjury; and minor rewards had frequently the same effect. He could particularly state to the House one instance of perjury committed for the sake of reward, this was ill the conviction of paupers. It appeared in evidence before the Committee, that in one parish a person had been detected giving money to poor persons ill the street, for the very purpose afterwards of taking them to a Police Office, informing against them as paupers, and getting the reward of 10s. upon each conviction. The Hon. Gentleman then adverted to the great in- crease of juvenile crimes within the last four years, and stated, that in 1813 the number of boys committed to prison under 13 years of age was 02; ill 1814, the number amounted to 98; in 1815, it was 88; and in 1810 the number increased to 110. Another subject to which the Committee had paid their particular at- tention ivas, that of Transportation, and the expence which that system entailed on the public. Since 1812 the number of persons transported amounted to no less thon 4059, of this number 220 were transported for 14 years, 1* 10 for 7 years, and the rest for life. The expence attending the Hulks and Botany Bay was most enormous, and had encreascd of late years to a most alarming degree. Taking the average of the last 10 years it would be found to amount to no less a sum than .£' 225,580 annually. This was a sum beyond any former precedent, a burthen upon the Public, from which they derived no adeqiiateadvantage. The Com- mittee considered this as a subject demanding themost serious attention to Parliament, at as early a period as possible. Having made these few observations, he should now content himself with moving, that the Re- port should be laid on the table. Sir S. Romilly hoped with his Hon. Friend that this important Report would receive the early attention of Parliament next Session. Mr. Butterworth strongly condemned the system of giving rewards; he knew an instance of an assault which took place in his neighbourhood, in which the person assaulted had no wish to prosecute, the Police- officers insisted on his doing so, and retained and paid Counsel themselves, in hopes of obtaining a conviction, which would have entitled them to a reward of „£ S0. After a few observations from Mr. Goulburn, the Re- port was ordered to lie on the table. • Mr. Vansittart moved Ihe usual Ad lressto the Prince Regent, praying that his Royal Highness would be pleased to order the usual sums to be paid to the Offi- cers of the HOUSE, which was agreed to.— Adj. WEDNESDAY. Lord Binning brought up the returns of Lunatics in Scotland. Only 030 of 839 parishes made returns.— The number of Lunatics- returned was 3,180. Allowing 814 for the parishes that made ho returns, the total number was 4,300, 800 were in confinement. Not above 291 were in places fit for tfie purpose of confining ( hem. 331 were kept ill places very improper for Hie purpose. 500 were either inadequately provided for, or kept by relations. He moved that a summary ofthe returns he printed. He then uoade a fresh motion for a return from each parish in Scotland of the number of insane persons, specifying how many were in confine- ment, and how many at large ; also the number of them that were furious; and how those in confinement were accommodated. Sir John Cox Hippesley moved for a copy of the con- cordat between the Court of Portugal mid the See of Rome in 1778, which, after some observations by Mr. Allan, on the necessity of upholding the religion of the State conscientiously, religiously, consistently, was ordered. SLAVE TRADE. Mr. Wilberforce stood before an audience, every indi- vidual of whom agreed in sentiment with his own. Yet when lie considered how many veals had rolled away and how many public men had departed since he had introduced the subject ofthe Slave Trade to the House, he could not do it again at present without the most painful feelings. His object was not to complain of what had been done to annihilate a traffic which all joined in condemning, but to strengthen the hands of Government to enable it to domore — For that purpose he meant to propose to Address the Crown, with a view- to the entire termination and condemnation of the African Trade. This commerce was still carried on to an immense extent. It was carried on even under the American flag, and he was sorry to say, that American vessels, property and subjects, were engaged in it. Since the French Settlements had been restored to France, although he did full justice to the intentions of ihe Government of that country, yet the Slave Trade appeared to revive on tlie western coast of Africa, at Gorce and Senegal. Against Sweden, Denmark, and Holland, there was no complaint, except iu one case only against the latter. But the great evil was the trade as it was carried on by Portugal and Spain. Notwith- standing the sacrifices which we had made to Portugal to abolish ihe trade north of the line, it was still carried on there under the Portuguese flag But even this sunk into insignificance, when compared with the devasta- tions of Spain. It was with astonishment and disgust that he saw a nation so high minded and spirited, so jealous of its own independence, lending itself to such a traffic. He should therefore move," That an humble Address be presented to his Royal Highness the Prince Regent, most humbly to represent to ( lis Royal High- ness, that in bringing to a close the other business of this Session, most important duties still remained to be per- formed by Parliament, and amongst the rest, that of again submitting to his Royal Highness the anxious soli citude of the House for the total abolition of the Afri- can Slave Trade ; that the House were grateful for the exertions already made, and the progress attained in the had seen, with unspeakable satisfaction, that many other nations, under whose flag that trade had been carried m, had ceased from it; that their expectations were strengthened by the memorial declaration, so worthy of their gt; eat Sovereigns, made by all the Plenipoten- tiaries assembled at Vienna ; that they must deeply re- eret that practices so contrary to such declarations should, even foran hour, be continued by a Christian country. and that all stipulations being broken and dis- regarded, some should be found to pursue the same ne- farious course as before; that in submitting these cir- cumstances to the humane consideration of his Royal Highness, they hope that lie will take such measures as will tend to" accomplish Ihe total abolition ofa sys- tem which frustrates every endeavour to civilize Africa, and that he will leave no efforts untried to effect that purpose ; that they also hope that his Royal Highness's representations will produce the desired effect; yet that if they should prove unavailing, they trust that the great Powers who joined in the Declaration at Vienna will feel themselves compelled by an overwhelming sense of duty to adopt such a course of policy in their commercial relations as will tend to put an end to the traffic, and duly punish ils peipetrators; and that in enforcing those considerations ou his Royal Highness, they do not do it from mere humanity, but from a sense that it is their duty to endeavour to repair the wrongs which England has inflicted on Africa, by teaching the natives of that country to enjoy the blessing of peaceful industry, and of legitimate commerce." Lord Castlereagh was certain, that whatever might have been the result of theii exertions, Ihe House would not conceive his Majesty's Ministers to have slept on so important a question. Much bad already been done by the solemn declaration of the greatest Sove- reigns ofthe world at Vienna; bin as long as any Power lent its hand to that degraded traffic, and thus enabled othels under its flag, the whole was not done. He should not oppose the address of liis Hon. Friend, but should concur in it; and should be prepared at the be- ginning of the next Session to lay the Whole subject before the House, for the purpose ofgoingin to an enquiry. The address, after some observations by Mr. I'. Moore, Mr. Brougham, Mr. A. Browne, Mr. Coulbourn, Mr. C. Smyth, ( of Cambridge), Mr. Barham, Mr. W, Smith, and Mr. Marryatt, was then agreed to. FINANCE; The Finance Resolutions of Mr. Tierney and Mr. C Grant were discussed. Mr. Tierney commenced his OLD BAILEY, JULY r. CHILD STEALING.— Harriet Molyneux Hamilton was tried on an indictment charging her with feloniously stealing an infant male child, six months old, son of Mr. Porter, butcher, in Quebec- street.— This case has been already detailed at great length. The prisoner, who is a handsome woman, 25 years of age, was ratherelegantlv attired, with a silk shawl negligently thrown over her back. Louisa Wood, servant to the prosecutor, proved that she was nursing the child in company with two other girls, when the prisoner contrived to send the two other girls away, and she then gave witness money to go to No 21, Lower Berkeley- street, on an errand, having undertaken to nurse the child until the girl's return.— Witness could find no such number as directed to in Berkeley street, and on her retnrn the prisoner was gone. The waterman at the coach stand in Oxford- street, and Woodhard, a Hackney coach- master, were next called. The former proved that he put the prisoner and the child into the coach; and Woodhard entered into a detail of driving the prisoner to Croydon, she. having first desired to be driven to Charing- cross, and next to the Elephant and Castle. This witness proved that the prisoner put fresh clothes on the child whilst in the coach, and that she was very humane and atten- tive to him. On witness returning to London he was apprised of the loss of the child, and he communicated what had happeued to Mr. Porter. Woodhard went through the history of driving the father of the child bv way of Brighton to the, Golden Fleece at Chichester, where the prisoner was taken. Mr. Porter corroborated the coachman as to the route, and on his arrival at Chichester he entered the room where the prisoner was attending the child in bed. The father spoke, and the infant knew him. The prisoner was hushing the child and patting him upon the back. He had fresh clothes on which did not belong to him. R. Hewlett, of the Golden Fleece, corroborated the above evidence as to what passed at the inn, and the mother produced the child in Court. The prisoner gave in a long written defence, in which she disclaimed any malice towards the child or his parents. She did not take the boy to keep him for any length of time, neither did she take him for lucre « * gain, although her present situation rendered it impos- sible to disclose her intentions further. The other part of the defence went to state that the act required a malicious intent to be proved, when no such intent existed. Her mind was overwhelmed wilh sorrow at the rash act. The JUDGE, in summing np the evidence, observed, hat the carrying away the child by force, or by fraud1 ir collusion, implied malice, upon the construction of* he statute. There was no occasion for malice against he child or against the parent,?. The Jury, without hesitation, found the prisoner Guilty, which subjects her to transportation, at the dis- cretion of the Court— The Solicitor - General prosecuted md the Court was crowded to excess. And a Marine Gyrograph simplifying navigation. nd facility. A Night Semaphore ot four Lights and one Pointer, f nine hundred thousand millions power.

This arose from his having entirely omitted the material fact of four millions of Exchequer Bills having been paid off durii^ r the present year. The Right Hon. Gentleman entered into a long and elaborate exposition of his re- solutions, in which he admitted, that even upon hisown statement ( correcting the mistake respecting the Ex- chequer Bills, there was between himSfelfand Mr. Grant " a difference of only about 1,300,000! He. paid a hand- some and becoming compliment to the talent evinced by Mr. Grant in his counter- resolutions, aiid which in. deed the luminous anrd conclusive speech of that Gen- tleman most amply justified. The Chancellor of the Exchequer and Mr. Huskisson also spoke with great ability, ami gave very satisfactory oh positions of the state of the Finances of the country. The resolutions of Mr. Tieiney were negatived anij those of Mr. Grant agreed to without a division. PUNISHMENT OF SLAVES. Sir S. Romilly rose, in pursuance of notice, to move that there be laid before the House, copies of the pre sentments made, and bills of indictment thrown out, by the Grand Jury of Dominica in the month o February last. As he understood that the motion would not be opposed, he should only state that three cases o wanton cruelty to slaves had been laid before the Grand Jury, in one of which a pregnant: female had had her arm broken; and yet those whose duty it was to find the bills had thrown them out, adding a clause to their presentment, that" extremely dangerous consequence might result from the number of indictments for itn merited punishment to slaves brought before them, am supported by no evidence." So untrue was this as sertion, that upon one ofthe cases ten of the Grand Jury had been in favour of the bill; and upon all th Attorney- General of the Island had seen sufficient cause to prepare and present the bills. The Hon Member very briefly pressed upon the House the ne- cessity of interposing in cases like the present, or those laws for the protection of slaves which appeared th best upon paper, would be the worst in practice. Some . measures to amelioiate the condition ofthe slaves, an to afford them better protection, were necessary ; fo , it appeared, on the authority of a Gentleman who ha the most accurate information, that with the exception of Barbadoes, from the old system of cruelty pursue by those who had the management of the slaves, th I numbers had gradually diminished since the abolition He concluded by moving for the papers above stated ' — The question was put and carried.— Adj. : THURSDAY. Lord G. Beresford appeared at the Bar, and state ; that his Royal Highness the Prince Regent had bee • waited on with the Address of the House, reqnestir - that his Royal Highness would Order compensation I the Officers ofthe House, and that his Royal Highne had returned a most gracious answer to the same. 1 Mr. Vansittart then moved the order of the day ft resuming the adjourned debate on the grant for a su I of .£ 10,000 to be appropriated to the repair of Lyn Regis Harbour. Mr. Gordon objected to this order being brought fo n ward at so early an hour. He understood tliearrang jj ments through the Session bail been, that no pub! . business should be- brought forward a! an earlier hoi g than half past four. It was now only five minnt after four; and lie was aware that several of his frieni ' ( especially the Hon. Member for Rochester), who 1 knew intended to deliver their sentiments on thissul ^ ject, trusting implicitly to this arrangement, were n yet come down. He trusted, therefore, the Right Ho Gentleman would not press forward this motion, befo the usual hour for commencing public business arrive Mr. Vansittart agreed that the Hon. Gentleman w perfectly correct in what he had stated respecting t ^ commencement of public business ; tint this arrang lg ment had been adopted only with a view to private h sines*. At present there was no private business befo the House ; and as the Hon. Members were aware . that circumstance, and also of the time at which t House met, he therefore could not see any fairgroun ' for the complaint ofthe Hon. Member. Mr. Gordon said, if the Right Hon. Gentleman pi " sisted in bringing on the order before half- past four, e> would move that the House should be counted. Mr. Vansittart thought proper to persist, notwith- standing this threat, and the Hon. Member proceed ' to carry his threat into execution. The gallery was 3t cleared, and on the House being counted, there being ^ only 31 Members present, an adjournment took place IC t0 A fever rages at this time at Cork ; the number ie of the afflicted is said to amount to between G and 700 persons, and an application has been made to Government for tents to encamp what the two Hospitals cannot contain, The Scotch emigrants, who lately arrived at Pillan, sailed from Leith about 4 weeks ago in the Helen, Charters. They consist chiefly of small farmers and hinds, from the southern counties of Scotland, who have been induced bv the liberal arrangements of Count Poa, a Polish Nobleman, to settle as a colony on his estate of Dovspouda, for the purpose of introducing the improved agriculture of Scotland into the fertile but ill- cultivated plains of Poland. The Count has allotted a tract of his best land for the station of the colony, to which he has given the name of Scotia. They enter upon regular leases of 20 years, at a rent almost nominal, and, besides other peculiar advantages, they are, by an ukase of the Emperor Alexander, freed from the operation of the military conscription. Liberal provision has also been made by the proprietor for a Presby- terian clergyman, who will speedily join them, and who will also act as schoolmaster to Ihe settlement. Tuesday se'nnight, as Miss Heriot, daughter of John Heriot, Esq. of Ladykirk, was bathing in the river Tweed, she got too far into the cur- rent, out of her depth. On her screaming for assistance, the nursery maid, who attended her, having hastily laid upon the grass an infant she had in her arms plunged into the river, fo save, if possible, the young Lady, but both were unfortunately drowned. The following is the verdict ofthe Coroner's Jury on the bodies of the 38 men and boys who lost their lives at the Row Pit, in Harraton Col- liery, near Chester- le- Street.—" The deceased came by their deaths iu consequence ot an ex- plosion of fire- damp, occasioned by the using of candles instead of the safety lamps, contrary to orders given."— Among the sufferers there are tO of the name of Hill, viz. a father, 2 sons, and 7 grandsons ; and we are sorry to add, from tli£ Durham County Advertiser, that on the follow- ing day some pitmen having descended into the pit, in order to ascertain the injury which had been done, eight of them were suffocated, in consequence of the impure state of the air. Singular Circumstance— A man named Jea- kin, residing on the island of Trescaw, in Scilly,' having some damp gunpowder in his possession this week, very incautiously put about 2lbs of it in an iron pot over the fire, in order to dry it. He employed his wife to blow the fire, whilst he stirred the combustible matter with an iron poker ! The pot becoming heated, a dreadful eXplosion took place, attended with lamentable results.— The man was struck blind ; his thumb- and hand were lacerated in a shocking manner; and his clothes, and several parts of his body, were much burnt and injured. His wife like- wise was severely scorched. But what is most remarkable is, that not a vestige of the pot has been found since !—( Cornwall Paper.) Audacious Robbery. — The following audaci- ous robbery was committed on Friday ;— A youth was sent by a Gentleman 111 Lincoln's Inn- fields to the banking- house of Sykes and Co. in Mansion- house- street, with a draft of 170I. lie was desired to take 15 ten pound notes and the rest in small notes. The Bankers said, they happened nol to have so many tens in their drawer, and they gave the boy a note for 10l. and one for 501. with directions to step to the Bank and get them changed for tens, which he accordingly did. On returning home lie was accosted by a man with a pen behind his ear, who said the two notes he had given in were forgeries, and he must return with him to the Bank. The boy was accordingly taken back, and when in the Rotunda, the fellow, who had the appearance of a clerk took the notes under the pretence of carrying them to the Cashier, and in an instant disappeared. The lad, after waiting half an hour, gave an alarm, but in vain. Cruelty.— One of those outrages to that noble animal the Horse, which from their frequency are by too many considered merely as feats of strength and bottom, but which the feeling mind cannot contemplate without horror and detestation, was witnessed at Ipswich a fav days since. A master butcher, named Beard, for a wager of £ 10, undertook to ride the same horse from Ipswich to London, and back again.. a distance of 133 miles, in 10 hours. The animal selected for this cruel exertion was a little hack- ney mare, about 14 hands high ; and what ren- dered her wholly unfit for such a journey, she had only been taken from pasture at 11 o'clock the night previous. The owner, w ho weighs 12. stone started from Ipswich at six o'clock in the evening ; be reached London at two in the morning, rested about two hours, and arrived in sight of the town, and within half a mile of iiis own house, 25 minutes within the time al- lowed, when the poor animal worn out with fatigue and exertion, staggered several paces and broke down. The rider instantly dismounted and the mare fell ' to the ground. She made several ineffectual attempts to rise, and the groans she uttered were of the most agonizing description. It was deemed advisable to bleed her, and a few minutes put an end to her suffer- ings by death.— This surely is an additional claim on the Legislature to pass Lord Erskine's or some similar law. 1 j LONDOX, FRIDAY, JULY 11, 1817, Thursday morning were received the Paris' Papers of" Monday last. The following are Extracts: — " Paris, July 7.— The Journal of Strasburgh of the 2d inst,— « A considerable assemblage of persons was formed yesterday in the Place d'Armes, at the time of mounting guard, who grossly insulted the National Guards whilst proceeding to their posts. The Prevotal Court has taken up the affair, and several individuals have been arrested.' " Yesterday two individuals who refused to take off their hats whilst the King was iu the balcony, and who replied to the repeated calls of the public by indecent expressions, were arrested, and delivered into the hands of authority. " The Russian squadron sailed from Calais on the 3d inst. with the troops of that Nation on board, returning home. " His Majesty has signed the contract of marriage between Mademoiselle Macdonald, daughter of the Marshal Duke de Tarente, and the Mareshal de Camp Raton de Saint Mare. " According to recent intelligence from Al- giers, the Dey has hitherto performed with much punctuality the conditions of the Treaty. He is very far from wishing to make war upon the great Powers, being already at war with the Rev of Tunis and with the revolters of Bona, where a sort of insurrection has broken out. " A letter from the Duke de Richelieu to the Metropolitan Chapters of Toulouse states it to be the intention of Government to re- establish the ancient Metropolitan Sees, and a certain number of the ancient Bishoprics. " Petersburgh, . June 12.— The marriage of the Grand Duke Nicholas with the Princess Charlotte of Prussia will take place about the 3d or 4th of next month. " Vienna, June ' 26.— The Princess Royal of Portugal was still on the 18th at Florence, or rather in the neighbourhood of Florence, at a villa, where her Imperial Highness proposed to wait the arrival of the Portuguese squadron at Leghorn. Their arrival no! being immediately expected, the Prince de Metternich would, it was supposed, proceed in the mean time to Rome to have conferences with Cardinal Gonsalvi, and then return to Leghorn to deliver the Princess to the Portuguese Commissioners. PLAGUE IN ALGIERS. Extract of a Letter from Gibraltar, dated 18th June, received at Lloyd's on Thursday morning. " By a small vessel arrived liere yesterday from Aran, we have received intelligence ( which I believe can lie relied on) through the medium of two private letters dated the 4th inst. written by Jews resident there to their relatives here, of the plague, or some such fatal disorder, having broken out iu Algiers. The following is a translated Extract of the one containing the most particular account: — " Intelligence has been received from Algiers, by " which they state,- that there are many sick in thai place. People who arc all day in their shops in good health, when they retire homo at night, after supper, make a convulsive cry", and remain dead. Moors, walking in their streets, suddenly die. Three or four Jews die every day: of the Moors, their number is not vet ascertained. They say that it is the plague, but nothing positive is known, I have just, received a let- ter from our father, who does not mention any tiling on the subject." " The circumstance of the writer's, father making 110 mention of the matter cannot appear strange, as lie might not wish to alarm his son.— A report is now in circulation, through the Algerine Jews here, that the British Vice- Consul, Neroneze, died at Algiers of the disorder, and that it has prevailed 8 or 10 weeks. It does not appear that any official communication was made from Algiers to Aran of the circumstance. An express may go from one place to the other in 30 hours, the usual travelling is 4 or 5 days. Understand it is in contemplation not, to admit any vessels from that quarter, and I greatly fear it may interrupt our pre- sent free communication with South Barbary, as from the accessibility of one State with the other, apprehen- sions may be entertained of the contageon spreading," TOLLS TO BE LET. ;.

Mails from Hamburgh and Flanders arrived on Friday morning. We should suppose that some of the Opposition were in correspondence with the Brussels Papers ; for we find in them the. Opposition reports of Divisions in the British Ministry. Wo need scarcely say, that there is no more ' foundation for this report than for another which the Brussels Papers tack to it, of an impending war between this country and America. Turkey seems suspicious of some movements of Austrian troops to the Austrian frontiers, Austrian Envoys, who had a commission to pur- chase corn 011 the Turkish territories, have been stopped in consequence of these suspicions. The Mania for Emigration seems at length to have experienced a check, aud many German families which had set out to embark for Ame- rica, are returning home. Our English Proverb says—" Home is home, tho' ever so homely.' " Such is the Patriot's boast, where'er we roam, His first, best Country, ever is at home." " Brussels, July 8.— Private letters front London say, that there are divisions in the Cabinet of St. James's, and that a war between England and America is spoken of. The same accounts say, that Lord Grenville has offered to enter the administration, if this war took place. " Parma, Jan. 23.— The Austrian regiment of the Emperor's Hussars, which has returned from France, is not gone to Gallicia, as was supposed ; it is gone to the Bannat. Another regiment of Hussars has been ordered to the frontjers; these two corps have shewn much facility in procuring forage. The Turkish Go- vernment seems lo have regarded these military movements as a sign of distrust, and it has con- sequently detained for a long time at Belgrade our Envoys, who were going to Wallachia to purchase corn. They have been obliged to wait for permission from Constantinople to con- tinue their route. " Stutgard, June 30.— For some weeks past we see a great number of Wurtemburgers return, who had quitted their country lo go and seek their fortune elsewhere, and who are now in the greatest distress. Some of them return from Holland, or from the frontiers of that country, and ofthe Prussian States, where a passage has been refused them. Others have been only to the environs of Mentz, where the crowds of their fellow- countrymen, who were returning home, induced them to do the same. THE NEW SILVER COINAGE. Although we have, upon different occasions, expressed ouradmiration ofthe unprecedented exertions by which Mr W. Pole, in so short a time, completed the Silver Coinage, and of the judgment with which his arrange meiits for the simultaneous exchange of the New for the Old Silver Coin, in every part of Great Britain, were planned, we are induced, once more, to revert to the subject, by the account of the " Expences incurred in the New Coinage," . Sic. which that Rt. Hon. Gent, laid upon the table of the Honse of Commons on Satur- day. It will be recollected that, when the subject of the New Coinage was last year discussed in Parliament, it was universally admitted, that the loss of withdraw- ing the old deteriorated Coin from circulation, and sub- stituting the new one, ( independent of the expence of the operation,) must be enormous.— W. Pole proposed that ,£ 500,000. should he granted for that purpose, but of course not limiting himself to that sum; for those who were the most moderate in their calculations did not think that so important an operation could be effect- ed at a less expence to the country than one million sterling. From the document, however, to which we have alluded, it appears that the loss arising from the substitution of the New for the Old deteriorated Coin of the Realm : the expence of coiningabove 70 millions of pieces ofsilver ; of recoiningall the old silver brought in; of providing 524 stations rn England,( besides those in London) and 90 in Scotland, for the exchange of ( he Coin ; the salaries of all the. Commissaries, Examiners of Money, Clerks, etc. together with all incidental charges of every kind whatever, only amount to ^ 500,992. 8d.: a sum so incredibly small, that if the statement were not official, we should doubt its accu- racy. The applauses which were given to Mr. Pole in the House of Commons on Wednesday night, by Mr. J. Smith, the Chairman of the Committee of Bankers, Mr. Hammersley, and Mr. Grenfell, and which were so loudly cheered by the House, were a just tribute to that Right Hon. Gentleman for the abi- lity, energy, and promptitude with which he carried this great national measure into execution; but when it is known that it was accomplished at so small an ex- pence, his claims to the admiration and gratitude ofthe country will be still stronger. We cannot close our observations upon this subject belter than by quoting the words of a contemporary:—" No operation of such importance and necessity was ever performed with more complete success, or at less expcnce. Let otir Readers conceive the vastness and extent of this ope- ration. A total change of Coinage was to take place throughout the kingdom— millions were to be with- drawn— millions were to be substituted for them ; and this was doue by a simultaneous operation: it was effected almost with the quickness of magic; and, as if Ihe Master ofthe Mint had the wand of the enchanter, the bad Coinage disappeared, and the good appeared in all parts in a moment. The most sanguine. expecta- tions could nothave conceived such success to be within the scope of probability; and hence the eagerness with which all men are ready t praise to the Master of the Mint."— SUN H.

Letters received on Thursday morning from New York give the most distressing accounts respecting business ; failures have taken place to an immense amount, and a general alarm prevails. English goods are purchased in Ame- rica full 20 per cent, under the manufacturing price, aud scarcely a market to be had upon those terms. A Boston Paper of June 17, contains the fol- lowing intelligence from Pernambuco of the 17th of the month preceding, which is ten. days later than any intelligence before received from the seat of the Brazilian Insurrection : — ( From the Boston Daily Advertiser, of June 17.) " Boston. June 17.— By a Gentleman who ar- rived'at Holmes Hole, and passed through town on Thursday, for Salem, we have received infor- mation from Pernambuco of the 17lh of May. It represents the state of the new Republic as much less prosperous than the previous accounts, and entirely contradicts the information lately received by way of Charleston, of the joining ofthe other provinces of Brazil in the Revolu- tion ; on the contrary, the City and Province of Bahia were engaged with great zeal in support of the Royal cause, and the people were volun- teering to aid in the reduction of Pernambuco to their allegiance; and from Rio Janeiro, the ca- pital of the kingdom, no information had been received. The people of Pernambuco appeared to be much less satisfied with their prospects than they had been for some weeks. The King of Prussia is expected at the Prus- sian head- quarters at Sedan about the end Of this month, or the beginning of August, " when there is to be a brilliant review on the Banks of the Meuse, at which the Duke of Wellington and several General and superior Officers of the allied troops are to be present. It is supposed the Prussian Monarch will then proceed to Caiti- bray, to be present at a grand review of the greater part of the troops, forming the right wing of the Army of Occupation. Destructive Water- Spout.— The following are the particulars of a Water- spout which fell 011 the Canton of Tilbourg, in the Netherlands :— " About 7 in the evening, a hurricane, accom- panied by thunder, suddenly arose to the west- ward. At 8 all was silent, but the air was vio- lently agitated ; clouds accumulated in all di- rections, and at so little distance from the earth that they seemed almost to touch the tops of trees. Soon after, there was formed in the S. W. a water spout very large in the upper part, but apparently not more than 3 or 4 feet diameter at the lower. It raised clouds of sand. A dreadful sound was heard in the air, resembling that of a great number of carriages rolling upon a pavement. At Oosterhuit, about a league from Dougen, the court- yards were inundated in a moment; at Dougen not a drop fell. This water- spout directed itself from south- west to north- west. After having beaten down an in- calculable number ot firs, near Oosterhuit, it demolished a small house so completely, that nothing remained of it but some scattered stones. A cart, which was passing, was thrown bottom upwards, and one of the shafts broken to pieces. The horse, although still yoked, was turned a different way, his head being under the cart. The driver was thrown upon the road. This water- spout caused at Dougen considerable havoc. It broke in pieces a row of lit' trees— destroyed a house and all the corn which was stored in it, three sheep- folds and bee- hives. A female servant was also dreadfully wounded. It carried away the entire roof of a house, for the distance of 500 paces. It overturned a barn— broke down the chimney of a house, and split the beams by which it had been propped. It then destroyed the back part of another house and a sheep fold. The loss is very great, and the ruin of habitations and trees indescribable." Prolific Family.— July 4, Mrs. Claridge, wife of Mr. Claridge, who keeps the sign of the Red Lion at Paddington, was brought to bed of three children: about the same hour his cow calved two calves; and his sow littered 14 pigs ( one of which had two heads. The whole are well and likely to thrive— this is Mrs. C's first accouch ment, although they have been married 20 years!

IT is a fact established by the annual Bills of Mortality that one half of the Children born are cut off before attaining Seven Years of Age, and the fruitful source of this mortality is found to exist iii that foul state of the Stomach and Bowels which pioduc. es- the generation of Worms. As the safe restorer ot Infantine Health, in this critical state," Ching's Worm Lozenges," have long held a distinguished reputation : Mild and safe in their operation, suited to every stage oi' this pe. riod of Life, and infallible in their effect, their character has been sustained by the highest names in rank, re- spectability, and science, from a personal Knowledge of their utility in their own families. Many fond and anxious Mothers, who have watched with inexpressible solicitude the dawning days of their Young { Offsprings know ing tpo well the dangers and vicissitudes of that tender age, have successfully bad recourse to these Lozenges, andean gratefully testify to their excellence. As an opening Medicine in Spring and SOmmer, anil for foulness ofthe Stomach and Bowels and Convulsions although Worms may not exist, it is allowed to be supe- rior to every other.

To Dr. Smith of Upton Magna, near Shrewsbury. DEAR SIR,— I. R.

On the preceding day, being the anniversary of the King's return to the capital, his Majesty reviewed the 13 legions of the Pa- risian National Guard upon the Boulevarde Chumartin. The streets through which he pas- sed were lined with military, and the white flag and other appropriate emblems were displayed from the windows. The number of men under arms is estimated at 30,000. The city was illu- minated at night, and popular pieces were play- ed at the several theatres. All Paris is on the tiptoe of expectation of a present of a royal in- fant from the Duchess of Berry. Should it be a boy, its birth will be announced by the dis- charge of 21 cannon ; if a girl, of ten. Nine more individuals, charged with being implicated in the late insurrection near Lyons were tried at that city on the 4th inst. one of them was con- demned to death, two to deportation, one to public exposure, and hard labour for five vears. The one condemned to death, a young man of 23 years of age, exclaimed with great boldness, ou retiring from the bar, " I hope that he for whom I die will avenge my death."

July 12th, 1817. JOHN WOOD, Clerk. ariety of Topics, concluded by moving an Address to the Prince Regent, pledging the House toan enquiry next Session into the mannerin which the powers placed in the band of Government may have been exercised during the recess. Lord Castlereagh, in opposing the Address, said, that if Mr. Brongham's view of the con- duct of Ministers was correct, lie ought, in the. course of the. Session, to have moved impeachments against them, instead of coming down'at the close of it to libel the conduct of Parliament. Never was there a Session in which the House bad been more successfully anxious to relieve the distresses of the country. As to the system of Government, his wish was to preserve the constitution entire; whilst the reform proposed by the Hon. Gentleman, both in and out of doors, would in his opinion, tend to its subversion. He then concluded with complaining of the ungenerous conduct of Mr. B. in ransacking the transactions of 20 years ago in Ireland. Mr. Canning vindicated tbe conduct of Lord Castle- reagh, and, after a reply from Mr. Brougham, the motion was negatived without a division. A desultory conver- sation then took place relative to the petition of the Evanses, which occupied some considerable time, and the House adjourned at three o'clock in the morning. SATURDAY. The Speaker took the chair at two o'clock, and soon after the Usher of tbe Black Rod appeared and sum- moned the House to the House of Peers, to bear the speech from tbe Throne. On their return the Speaker took his scat at tbe table, nd, as usual, read a copy of the Speech delivered by ihe Prince Regent, as follows:— " My Lords and Gentlemen, " I cannot close this Session of Parliament without re- uewing my expressions of deep regret at the continuance of his Majesty's lamented indisposition. " The diligence with which you have applied your- selvs to the consideration of the different objects which I recommended to your attention at the commence- ment of the Session, demands my warmest acknow- ledgments; and I have no doubt that the favourable change which is happily taking place in our internal situation, is td be mainly ascribed to the salutary mea- sures which yon have adopted for preserving the public tranquillity," and to your steady adherence to those principles by which the Constitution, resources, and credit of the country, have been hitherto preserved and maintained. " Notwithstanding the arts and industry which have been too successfully exerted in some parts of the country to alienate the affections of his Majesty's sub- jects, and to stimulate them to acts of violence and in- surrection, I have had the satisfaction of receiving the nost decisive proofs ofthe loyalty and public spirit of ( lie great body of the people; and tbe patience with which they have sustained the most severe temporary distress cannot be too highly commended. " I am fully sensible of the confidence which yon have manifested towards me by the extraordinary powers which you have placed in my hands; the ne- cessity which lias called for them is to me matter of deep regret; and yon may relv on my making a temperate but effectual use of them, for the protection and security of his Majesty's loyal subjects. " Gentlemen of the House of Commons, " I thank yon for the supplies which yon have giautcd to me; and for the laborious investigation which, at my recommendation, you have made into the state of the income and expenditure of the country. " It has given me sincere pleasure to find that you have been enabled to provide tor every branch of the public service without any addition to the burdens of the people. " The state of public credit, affords a decisive proof of the wisdom and expediency, under all the present circumstances, of those financial arrangements which you have adopted. " I have every reason to believe that tbe deficiency in tbe revenue is, in a great degree, to be ascribed to the unfavourable state of the last season, and I look forward with sanguine expectations to its grudual improvement. " My Lords and Gentlemen, The measures which were in progress at the com- mencement ofthe Session for the issue of a new silver coinage have been carried into execution in a manner which lias given universal satisfaction ; and to com- plete the system which has been sanctioned by Par- liament, a gold coinage ofa new denomination has been provided for the convenience ofthe public. " I continue to receive from foreign powers the strongest assurances of their friendly disposition to- wards this country, and of their desire, lo preserve the general tranquillity. The prospect of an abundant harvest throughout a considerable part of the Continent is in the highest degree satisfactory. This happy dispensation of Pro- vidence cannot fail to mitigate, if not wholly to remove that pressure under which so many of the nations of Europe have been suffering in the course of the last year ; and I trust that we may look forward, in conse- quence to nn improvement in the commercial relations of this and of all other countries. " I cannot allow you to separate without recom- mending to you, lliat upon your return to your several counties, yon should use yonr utmost endeavours to defeat all attempts to corrupt and mislead the lower classes of the community, and that you should lose no opportunity of inculcating amongst them that spirit of concord and obedience to the laws, which is not less essential to their happiness as individuals, than it is in- dispensable to the geueral welfare and prosperity of the kingdom." Tbe Lord Chancellor then, by hli Royal Highness's command, declared the Parliament to be prorogued until Tuesday the 25th of August next. A notice has been stuck up at tbe Post Office, that letters for Pernambuco will not be deliv- ered at that port unless it is ascertained thai the royal authority is restored there ; but in case it is not, the letters for that settlement will be for warded from Bahia the first convenient oppor- tunity. The remains of Mr, Ponsonby were interred at six o'clock oil Saturday morning, in a private manner, in the vault at Kensington, beside those of his brother, the late Lord Ponsonby. Mr. Ponsonby's head was opened by Mr. Lynn the surgeon, and in it were found six ounces of ex- travasated blood, in a coagulated stale. It is matter of surprise that life continued so long with so great a pressure upon the brain. Races at Wormwood Scrubbs.— It appears it is in contemplation to establish races annually on the above spot, commencing 12th August. The ground has been already measured for a mile course. Several noblemen and gentlemen have entered into subscriptions for three 50l. plates; and it is said that the above proposition Iras the concurrence ofa royal Duke, and who has also promised that two of his horses shall be entered to run for the above plates. Pedestrianism al Wormwood Scrubs— Stevens rested at nine o'clock on Saturday uight, having that day walked backwards 25 miles and a quarter. He started again on Sunday morning at four o'clock, and after resting four hours for breakfast, church hours, and dinner time, he had completed 17 miles at four o'clock in the after- noon. Bets have taken a turn, and are now about two to one against him. At the hour above- mentioned he had, since his commence- ment, gone 250miles oue quarter, being a quarter of a mile above half the distance he undertook to perform. Short Reasons for Short Petticoats.— 1st Absolutely necessary for petticoat government. 2d. Essential to the fashionable military walking step. 3d. Patriotic encouragement to silk stock ing manufactories. 4th. The life and soul of quadrilles, waltzing, and movements enfigurante. 5th. Safety, celerity, and facility, iu ascending aud descending carriage- steps and stair- cases. (> th. Annihilate all awkward tricks of hanging the heels upon the chair rail, 7th. Teach the proper use of the leg and foot, and keep up the laudable practice of the five positions. 8th Indispensible to the unity, proportion, and har nwny of modern dress. 9th. Greatly conducive to health at this season ofthe year. Messrs Rundle and Bridge.— It has been already mentioned that the wife of one of the parlies suspected of defrauding these gentlemen of jewels to the amount of 25,00ol. was in cus tody. This woman has undergone several pri vate examinations, and although for a length of time she persisted in her ignorance, she has at length given such information as has been the means of recovering part of ihe property to the value of 10,() aul, and from the discovery of some papers, hopes are entertained that the re- mainder or the greater part thereof, will speedily follow.

Thai slow and suffering pace, Chimney- Sweeper.— Climbing a chimney some few years- ago, In which the fire had been but late extinguished,- A scorching heat the fervid bricks retained, Which wither'd thus, and drew my limbs awry. Traveller But why thus venture, when you found the heat, Greater than yon could bear : why not desist From your employ, and wait ' till it abated. Sweep.— Ah! Sir, you know not what it is to have An hard task- master, one whose sordid soul The gentle touch of pity never felt :— I was a ' prentis, Sir, with many more. And my stern master ruled his little tribe With iron- hand : my services were wanted On that same morning for another job, Which I alone could do : be forced me up. Spite of my shrieks and cries; and when he saw My withered limbs on coming down again, He damned my soul for not informing him, The heat was so intense. Traveller.— And was there none to stay tbe barbarous Or after to avenge it ? Had you no one [ deed I In all the world, that you could call a friend ! Thy parents ; where were they ? Sweep.— Dead, Sir ! two long and weary years before; They married young, and an encreasing family Imposed an heavy burthen on their shoulders ; Nine little children looked to them for bread, Of whom I was the eldest: and full often, We've all of us gone supperless to bed :— Hard labor and bad food, and little of it, Brought down our father to a bed of sickness, From whence he never rose: My mother followed ;— I saw the earth close over the remains Of all I loved and valued : then the Parish Disposed of us, in many various ways: Brother or sister have I never seen, From that time forward, and know not their fate : Mine has been sad indeed : deprived in youth Of tbe full use and freedom of my limbs, And doomed for ever thus to crawl along, An object of disgust to all the world, Of mirth to the unfeeling; and unfit For any work but that which thus I follow !

Farewell, my friend. Cranbrook, July 4th, 1817. ELECTION OF CORONER. Wednesday the election for Coroner, in tbe room of tbe late Mr. Simmons, of Rochester, took place. The business was opened at the Court House upon Penenden Heath, by the Under Sheriff; when Mr. Morson, ot Rochester, was proposed by Mr. Dudlow, of Malling, and seconded by Mr. Fookes, of Dartford; after which, Mr. Ottaway, of Staplehurst, was proposed by T. L. Hodges, esq. and seconded by P. Monypenny, esq of Rolvenden. Each candidate having addressed tbe Freeholders, the Under- Sheriff proceeded to take the shew of hands, which he pronounced decidedly in favor of Mr. Ottaway. A poll being then demanded, tbe business was adjourned to the Town Hall, in Maid- stone, when at the close, at eight o'clock on Wednesday evcuing, the numbers stood as follows :— Mr. Ottaway 930 Mr. Morson 433 Majority 497 Mr. Ottaway then came forward and returned thanks, as did T. Hulkes, esq. in the name of Mr. Morson, who thanked the freeholders for their support, and assured them it was the intention to keep the poll open till they bad not a leg to stand upon, and he had no doubt of the issue of tbe contest being in favour of Mr. Morson. The polling re- commeneed on Thursday morning, and at the close, in the evening, the numbers were— Mr. Ottaway 1215 Mr. Morson 706 Majority 449 When both parties expressed their determination to continue the contest, which was persisted in till about 11 o'clock on Friday morning, at which time tbe num- bers were, for Mr. Ottaway 1251 Mr. Morson 772 Majority - 479 The poll was then finally closed upon the resignation of Mr. Morson, who in addressing the freeholders, stated that he had been induced lo decline the contest ill consequence of an interview with a distinguished Nobleman, who had with much kindness promised his influence in procuring the establishment of a sixth Coroner, and in that case supporting the views and interests of Mr. Morson. At I he election for a Coroner on the 1st and 2d of December, 1813, Mr. Carttar polled 906, and Mr. Fookes 727. in the Court of Common Pleas, a few days ago. Mr Bramwell, a wine. merchant, of Pimlico, obtained a verdict for an assault upon him by Mr. Hart, an auc- tioneer, of Tonbridge Wells, who came to pay some rent. It is a curious circumstance, that Boniface, another tenant of Mr. Bramwell, was executed on Penenden- beath, for firing at him with a pistol. The assault complained of above was committed on next quarter- day after Boniface had committed the rash act tor which he suffered. On Tuesday evening, Mr. John Collard, undertook, fora trilling wager, to drive a man in a wheelbarrow, from the lower bridge in Wingham, to the Ship Inn, at Ash, a distance of nearly three miles, and a hilly road, in the short space of half an hour, which difficult under- taking he accomplished three seconds within tbe time, but was so fatigued that he. was carried home and put to bed: surgical assistance being obtained be was copiously bled, and is now considerably better. On Tuesday last, Thomas Spillett, a youth about 15 years of age, attempting to jump upon the military bridge, at Chatham, from a boat, as she was sailing by, unfortunately did not spring far enough, and falling into the river, was overwhelmed by the rapidity of the tide, and drowned before any assistance could be given him. A few nights since, as a poor woman named Draw- bridge, was on her journey from Northiam to Rye, with two children, whom she was drawing in a small carriage, she dropped down in ascending a hill in the parish of Playden, and instantly expired, having a husband and three children to lament their sudden loss. A few nights ago, a furze stack, belonging to Mr. E. Fielder, of Eastbourne, was consumed by fire, com- municated by the hand of an incendiary who lias hitherto escaped justice ; but a reward of fifty pounds is off- red by the Directors of the Phoenix Fire Office, for his apprehension and conviction.

HOP INTELLIGENCE. Southwark, July 14,1817.— We continue to have a verv dull trade, and though the stock ou hand is small, it furnishes us with a much greater supply than ottr pre- sent demand requires.— The Duty was at -£ 100,000 to £ 110,000 on Saturday, butthe accounts from tbe plan- tations are more unfavourable to- day, consequently do not suppose any one would exceod .£ 100,000. Canterbury, July 10— The accounts ofthe consequence of the verrain in this vicinity arc various, as respects situation, generally, however, the plant, within the last four or five days, has shewn symptoms of the honey- dew, and mould, and has also, in many grounds, began to turn black: it is moreover said, that a new flight of the fly lias fixed on those shoots of the bine which have hitherto outgrown the former infection.
