FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. BRUSSELS, July 20.— Letters from Cambray say, that it is now considered as quite certain that the Duke of Wellington is gone to Paris, entirely on account of the negociation for relieving France from a second fifth of the allied army. It is added, lhatall the Allied Powers do not approve of this measure; but Russia and England have expressed themselves notdisiurlined to it. BRUSSELS, July 29.— The Free and Hanseatic Towns of Germany have been invited by his Majesty Ihe Emperor of all the Russias, to accede to the Treaty of the Holy Alliance. BRUSSELS, July 30.— The Duke of Wellington, when he returned to the chateau of St. Marie, found there his whole family ; his son, the Marquis of Douro, arrived there a few days ago. Ou the 27th the Duke dispatched several couriers to London and Vienna. This active correspondence serves to prove that important subjects are under negocia- tion. All the accounts from the French frontiers agree that the state of those provinces is greatly im- proved. Corn continues to fall at the principal markets, and the crops piotnise to be uncommonly productive. A letter, written by a person whose authority is to be depended on, says, that it is considered as certain, that Ihe Powers have agneed on a further redurtion of the Army of Occupation, and that the reduction may probably take place in the month of September. STOCKHOLM, July 15.— Yesterday his Majesty sent for the Hereditary Prince Oscar, in order to take his seat next his Majesty in the Council of State, and in future to be present at the delibera- tions. The Hereditary Prince was introduced by the Crown Prince, his father, upon which his Ma- jesty addressed him in the following remarkable and excellent speech.:— " My-, Grandson ! It is a solemn and affecting moment for me, when I see you take the place at my side in which you are to witness the delibera- tions upon the welfare of ihe people whose. future ftttes Heaven has destined to be your rare. My age and infirm health do not allow me to say on this occasion all that my tenderness for you, and niy long experience, make me desirous of expressing. I will merely remind you, that you will one day become the chief of two free nations. Show them, by your respect lor their rights, how you would, have them respect yours. It is the constant equi- poise between these rights that in free Stated pro- duces order and strength; and it is the part ot the Sovereign, by justice, humanity, courage, aud judgment, to direct and develop this principle, for the highest qbject, the general welfare. Never forget, my grandson, that 1 this day impose upon you a sacred and cherished duty, namely, that of paying, when I shall be no more, my debt to your father, for all the warm love, the kind atten- tion, and the unwearied tenderness which he has shown me, from the very first hour of his connec- tion with this kingdom. Be to him what he is to me— be his support, as he is mine— press your heart to his as he presses himself to mine— my Country, your father, and you. This, my son, is what, you shall read iu my countenance as long as my heart shall beat; but vyhen my voice, already faint, shall have become for ever silent, may the . Almighty protwt thee, may he guide thy steps according to his laws, and permit thee, in the course of agesr. to behold from higher regions, thy name the honqyratid the delight of the earth." The Cruwn Prince also made on this occasion a solemn address. to the King, and to the Prince his son. . PALEIIMO, June 21.— A frightful event, which makes all sensitive minds tremble with horror, has been for some days the object of public commi- seration. A felucca, belonging to Petro la Camera, having several passengers on board, had set out from Melazzo for this city. Scarcely had it left the harbour, when it was assailed by a hark carry- ing six armed pirates, \\ ho boarded the felucca, massacred the master and part of the sailoirs, and threw their bodies, overboard. In the mean time the other sailors had thrown themselves into the sea, in the hopes of escaping from these robbers. Freed thus from the crew the pirates occupied themselves with the passengers, of whom they spared none; all received severe wounds. fti, Issidore Annet, a merchant, was slaia, and his body flung into the sea. Several others, including many females, died of their wounds. The pirates t, hen cut with their sabres the sails and other ob- jects necessary for navigation, that the felucca should necessarily be sunk. They plundered the passengers of all their effects and money, which amounted to the sum of about 5000 ounces, which, by means of their little bark, they put on shore; and then, in the midst" of this terrific spectacle, sur- rounded by the dead aud the dying, they made u repast, in which they devoured tile provisions that were on boartl the felucca. After this feast they left the felucca, which they abandoned to itself. The same day she foundered on Ihe coast of Piruiuo. Out of twenty- one persons who had embarked, only eight arrived here. Of these, two have since died, and it is feared that the others will not lung sur- vive. It appears that the same assassins who com- mitted - this horrible violence on the felucca of Pkttro la Camera, had perpetrated a second ouU rage not Kss atrocious. The Captain, Don Bran, a Neapolitan, in a little felucca, nanieii La Geperosu, having eiglit sailors on board, suileij from CakK- l- latnare for Lipari, and thence to Tnrfennuzza. After having effected the first part of thisNroyugei he had hardly sailed from Lipari, iu the niirht of the 13th iust. when he was assailed by several armed men on board a row- boat. Alter having fired several musket- shots, the assassins boarded the felucca, murdered with sabres the Captain and sailors, aud seized on all the properly, and two 1000 ducats which the unfortunate Ctiplaiu had brought from a sale at Lipari. ' i hese robbers re- mained all night on board the feiucca. On the following- day they removed from tile coast, car- rying with them several unfortunate passengers, whom they had not massacred, and whom lli^ y destined to frightful torments.

PARIS, July 29.— A disturbance took place last Sunday at the Theatre Varices. The author of the Combat des Montagnes considered the ridicu- lous presumption of certain shopkeepers of Pans, who strut about the Boulevards with long whisker is and spurs, a fair subject of theatrical ridicule. It is difficult to assign a reason why this particular class of people should feel more indignant than physicians, and lawyers, and Marquisses, &<-. who from time immemorial have seen their extrava- gancies the favourite subject of the comic muse. This was the less to be expected last night, as it was the twenty- third time it had been uninter- ruptedly performed. No sooner, however, had the actor, on seeing M. Calicot appear, pronounced these unlucky words— Tiens, c est vous. Monsieur Calicot, avec cos moustaches et vos eperons ! « / e vous preniiis pour un bravr !—" What! is it you, Mr. Calico, with your mustaches and your spurs! I took you for oue of our brave!" than the mi st dire groans and howls proceeded from the t aliens of the pit, who were determined to avenge this sally as a personal insult. From cries ihcy pro- ceeded to blows, and fell manfully on the gendarmes, who were drawn up to oppose them ; while another party leaped 011 the slage to snatch the whiskers from off poor Brunei's cheek. ' I he affair then be- came more serious ; several w ere wounded, and a great number of ihe rioters safely lodged at th « Prefecture. In London, it may be remembered, the united tailors effectually prevented the repre- sentation of a piece at which they had taken an aversion. During the Government ot Bonaparte, a riot took place at the performance of C hristopher Columbus; the Police anticipated it, aud adroitly enough sent agents iu different parts of the pit, who opposed n « resistance to the outrageous, but privately marked the flaps ol their coats with white chalk. At the close of ihe second piece they were distinguished by these marks, like the sheep in a fold, and each offender was conducted, as he was leaving the Theatre, to the hackney- coach which had been prepared for him, and conveyed to pii- son. VIENNA, July 21.— Accounts from Clagenfurt say, that 011 the 5th of July, in the afternoon, a most terrible storm, from the north-. west, led on the town of Bleiburg- Geranth, in the Foggerthal, the barometer, standing at 25 inches, 1 line, 7 points. Not only was the dust, See. from the moun- tains driven about like black clouds, but stones as large as hen's eggs were dashed about through these clouds ; garden fences and wooden stables thrown down, an empty cask, 251b. weight, lilted into the air, and broken to pieces by the fall; houses unroofed, windows beat in, & c. A girl, six years old, was several times lifted off her feet, then thiowu down violently ; the child is wounded all over the body. Several persons were thrown down by the fury of the storm; all are more or less injured. This extreme violence of the storm lasted five mi- nutes, after which came a violent thunder storm and a heavy fall of rain. NUREMBERG, July 22.— The amicable and close connection which subsists between Rttssja aud England is proved by the order for English cloths to clothe the Russian army. The manu- factories at Leeds have taken inio employ many hundreds of workmen who were without work aud food. The order is not, in itself, of any great im- portance, but it has afforded to the English agents an opportunity for introducing other woollen manu- factures and to submit other propositions. FRANKFORT, July 28.— While the extraordi- nary hopes of an abundant harvest are every whero exciting delight, the inhabitants along ihe borders of the Rhine . seem to be excluded from this general joy. It is calculated, that between Constance and Mayence, in descending the river, there aie more than 20,000 acres under water, the vegetatiou of which is nearly destroyed. In a single district of the Grand Duchy of Baden, there are 1100 acres ruined by hailstones or inundations. FRANKFORT, July 25.— Among the strangers lately arrived here are Madame Lavalette, whose heroism saved her husband from the scaffold; Madame Regpault de St. Jean d'Angely; a greai many English families, and several officers, among whom are General Roberts and Colonel Art hdule ; the F. nglisji Cabinet Messengers, Robinson and Brown, coming from Paris ; M. de Bulowe, Cham- . berljfui to the King of Wirtemberg ; Dr. Herd- uian, of Cambridge, & c. LONDON. The Princess of Wales gave a grand concert of vocaVaiil instrniaierttal music, on the evening- of the ITfh of July, at her magnificent country- house at Scalthies,- near Rome,. The entire road leading to the palace was lighted', and many great person- ages from Rome were present. Paris papers and a Dutch Mail have: arrived, and the most important. part of their contents is the. e- ncoirpsfflgi intelligence they convey of prosperous harvests in every country of Europe,,. This, general blessing will produce commensurate consequences, extending themselves to all nations; for the con- nection which subsists, more or less, between the European States, re. tide. rs it almost impossible that either good or had fortune should he merely local in its operation' . Internal tranquillity Will he pro- moted by ample sources of subsistence, and at the same ' time leisure, and means, and disposition, created for the activity of enterprise in commerce, arts1, science, and literature, It is again stated in the Dutch papers, that ne- gociations are carrying on for the further reduction of the Army of Occupation in France, . and that the Allied Sovereigns are friendly to the proposition. We shall rejoice to find this the Case, because we may. safely presume the . Ministers of those Powers would not consent to such a' measure without a thorough conviction of its expediency. The ac- cessary inference follows, that France is rapidly returning to that state of loyalty and quiet, which it is no less the interest of Europe than of France herself to accomplish. All hope, however,' of re- storing her to this condition would have been fruit- less, but for- the wisdom which dictated the. pre- caution of counteracting the designs of treason, by the" presence' of a military force, always ready to crush them if they became formidable. The Paris papers mention the arrival at Nantes of the miserable Monks of La Trappe, who had found an asylum in this county from the horrors of the. French Revolution, and who now return to their native country to seek their early solitude. They had resided for about twenty- two years at Lulworth, in Devonshire, where their exemplary conduct had obtained for them universal esteem. They return to France deeply impressed with gratitude for English hospitality,: and mention with particular veneration the name of Mr. Weld, who had for so long a time insured them a safe and tranquil re- treat. ,. V! The Ex- King of Sweden, who passes under the name of Gustavus Sohn ( son of Gustavus).,; is at present travelling in the territories on the Rhine, tie proceeds afterwards to Hanan, where, he pro- poses to fix his residence," and where Prince Paul of Wirtemberg still r sides with Ins family. The latest accounts from Canton state,' that much discontent prevails among the people of Cochin China, occasioned by the King nominating for his successor a sou of one of his Concubines. The Emperor of China, who pretends to have a right to • interfere in the appointment of the Kinds of that country, has expressed his displeasure at the no- miuation. - Extract of a letter from Perpignan, July 18.— " On the arrival of General Lacy at Majorca, his sentence was read to him, and he was shot on the morning of the 5th. He died with equal com- posure and ' firmness. ' All that I regret,' said he, ' is to die by the hands of my ancient brethren in ahiis; it was on the field of honour, and while' combating the enemies of Spain, that a warrior litre me ought to finish his career.' After these words, he said to the soldiers, ' Fire!" • According to intelligence from Russia, the 7th corps of the Russian army, cantoned in Volhynia, his been joined by the 6th corps, and will be still further reinforced by the troops which are returning from France. General Beningsen, the Commander in Chief of these corps, who is about to proceed on as journey of inspection, intends, it is said, to visit the fortresses of Choczim, Bender, Ackermann, and Ismael, in order to assure himself that these places are in a proper state of defence, and suf- ficiently provisioned. The Porte is said to be not less active in taking advantage of the present state of peace to fortify all the important points on the frontiers and the defiles. The Danish Government is making extraordinary exertions for the re- establishment of its navy. A new ship of the line has been launched, two new frigates are finished, and two brigs, recently con- structed, are stationed in the Cattegat. It is confidently stated in the German papers, that- through the intervention of England, a Con- vention has been concluded between the Holy See and the Porte, which secures more liberty to the Christians established in Turkey. In consequence of this- Convention, printing presses have been established at Constantinople under the direction of an Italian. Several works in Italian, French and Latin, have already been printed. The New York Daily Advertiser mentions the arrival of a Vessel at Nassau with the important, intelligence " that Bonaparte had been set at liberty by an order from the British Government, and that he had sailed from the island of St. Helena for Maria."—". Risum teneatis— Another rumour is, that Canada is to be exchanged for some French possessions in the Mediterranean. So much for Trams- Atlantic information! The Prevotal Court of Montpelier has condemned to bard labour during life a young peasant, named Andre Audri, for most brutal usage to a child, who incantiously shewed him bis purse, which contained fourteen francs. This hardened wretch decoyed the child a little way out of the town, gave him several dreadful wounds, and deeming him dead, threw him into a ditch ; of course he possessed himself of the little treasure. Providentially the mangled child was discovered, and when able to appear gave evidence against his inhuman robber when he was Sentenced as above. In the Madras Gazette of the 15th of March is the following distressing account:—" We are con- cerned to announce a melancholy accident, which occurred in Colombo harbour on the 27th of January, by the upsetting of one of the boats be- longing to his Majesty's ship Iphigenia. From the accounts received, it appears, that a party of Officers belonging to his Majesty's 73d Regiment had proceeded on board the Iphigenia on that day to dine With the Officers of the ship, and that on their return in the evening, the boat unfortunately upset, by which distressing occurrence no less than seven lives were lost— Ensigns Campbell, Coane, and Hanwell, of his Majesty's 73d Regiment, and Lieutenant Sanders of his Majesty's ship Iphi- THE KING'S HEALTH.— ON Sunday the follow- ing Bulletin was exhibited at, St.' James's Palace, " Windsor Castle Aug 2 .

The part of the foot affected is the same as the Duchess suffered from about fifteen years since. Her Royal Highness has, during this attack, undergone two operations. Mr. Cline, the surgeon, and another medical gentleman, attended, in addition' to the surgeon and medical gentleman in Constant, attend- ance upon the Duchess, . Weymouth has been recommended for the recovery of her strength, and her Royal Highness, accompanied by the Duke, is expected to spend the autumn there. The Duke's house, in that town, has been preparing for their reception lor some time. The Duchess, while at Bagahot, takes the air and exercise in a garden chair drawn by a pony. The Duke is un- remitting in his attentions to his amiable spouse.

By a recent order from the Admiralty, there is now titling at Plymouth dock- yard a machine in all respects similar to a part of the gun- deck of a man of war, having quarters for three pieces of ord- nance, and width, when completed, is intended to be placed in the rear of the Marine Barracks, for the purpose of exercising the whole division of Marines at that port, in the necessary manoeavres of great guns for; sea service; and as the different parties are deemed sufficiently skilled in, this ex- ercise, they are to tire- with shot at a mark from the' battery at Devil's Point. Lieutenant Woorige, of tile Royal Marine Artillery, is appointed to this particular service. A piece of ground to the north- east of the Pa-, vilion, Brighton, offered to the Prince of Wales in 1795 for 10001. has, within the last four years, fetched 50,200l. on building leases. From Jan. 1, 1815, to July 10, 1817, there have been 420 additional houses rated in the parish books fin- poor- rates; independent of innumerable dwellings that have actually been built for 251. each, and afterwards rented to poor people at 4s. per week. The Glasgow Astronomical Society has lately procured a solar microscope, from a celebrated optician, the largest that optician has ever con- structed. It is exhibited to most advantage be- twixt eleven and two o'clock, during which hours the sun is in the best position for showing it. The ret trial of this superb instrument disclosed some wonderful phenomena; hundreds of insects were discovered devouring the body of a gnat, and scores ad lived luxuriously for several months on the leg of a moth. These animalcule Were magnified so as to appear nine inches long, their actual size being - somewhat less than the fourteen hundredth part of an inch. The mineral kingdom afforded another display of brilliant objects; their crys tallizations,- and the splendour of their colouring, exceed any thing the most lively imagination call conceive. At RossWool Fair, on Thursday se'nnight, Here- fordshire wool sold 2s. per stone ( lSUbs.) higher than the same kind of wool was sold at Hereford Fair the beginning of the month. Lambs' wool sold at 27s. per stone. There was scarcely any Spanish or Merino wool at the Fair: what is now called Ryland sold for 20s. per stone, much inte- riorin quality to the wool of that denomination a few years ago. Thetford Fair was numerously attended. But little business was done, the growers demanding for tine fleeces 52s. 6d. and the dealers declining to give more than 48s. The Leicester Journal says, nothing can more strongly exemplify the sound policy of letting the mechanic reap the just fruits of his labour, than the situation of the framework- knitter at the pre- sent moment, compared with what it was a mouth ago. At that period, after the conclusion of many hours' close labour, the stocking- maker could not obtain bread for his family ; the parochial rates were burdened to excess, to the great injury of the agriculturist and the tradesman ; the staple manufactory was in the high road of disgrace by the introduction of articles of the lowest and worst texture ; poverty and discontent clouded the pool- man's brow, and a few were taking advantage of the distressing moment, to the gre. it injury of the many. But thanks to the liberal sentiments of the majority of the hosiers, and the laudable coalition of the different parishes both in town and country, the scene is completely changed; every where the parochial rates are narrowing to their accustomed boundary; trade is reviving; few if any frames being unemployed, and the workmen throughout gratefully acknowledge that they " now earn wages that will enable them, by honest industry; to maintain themselves and families, without having recurrence to the assistance of parochial relief." In the large, parish of Wigston only, where there are many stocking- makers, and three weeks ago had eighty hands on what is termed the " round about," there is not one now unemployed! So great has been the improvement in the silk trade of Spitalfields for some weeks past, that not- withstanding raw silk has advanced full 20 per cent, every good hand is folly employed. PRICE OF BULLION.— Portugal Gold, In coin, was on Friday at 41. Os. ( kl. New Dollars at 5s. 2d. and Silver, in bars, standard, at 5s. 3!, d. An interesting exemplification of the natural affection which all animals- feel towards their young", occurred last week not far from Pettigo, Ennis- killen. In swimming a cow and her calf to an island situated at some distance in the lake Erne, the latter became so much exhausted on the pas- sage, as to be in danger of drowning. The dam, who had nearly reached the ' opposite shore, per- ceiving the peril to which her offspring was ex posed, instantly, turned hark, under strong symp- toms of anxiety, swam to the spot, seized the sinking animal in her mouth, and bore it in safety to the laiwlv. on reaching which tire gratification she felt was evidently expressed. e. extent',' has for the last three years been occupied by the poor of St, saviour's, .

' able^ diffienlty in saving the lives of several of the poor inmates, particularly those who were sick and lame. The gieatts^ exertion was barely suf- ficient for this purpose: some were brought out on the backs of men; and others who could not . sub- mit even to this motion,; were bronght out . on their beds laid on window- shutters. All were ultimately carried to the - school formerly occupied by Joseph Lancaster, in the B » rough Road, Some accidents ocurred;- one' bey is reported to have been killed, and another to have, had his arm broken, arid a woman has lost her thumb.. . These accidents were occasioned by the falling of a chimney of the building,'; of winch scafeely a vestige remains. A few nights, back a. young woman was brought to St. Giles's watch house on a disorderly charge, and when she was locked up she said to the man, " You never shall have, the: trouble of taking me out alive;" He did not pay- any attention to her words, but in a few' minutes after as he ' was going about . the cells, he observed- her'." hanging. He imme- diately cut her down, and by the exertions of the watchouse- keeper and his wife animation was restored with difficulty. Sire said the dread of going to Bridewell induced her to make the rash attempt;' •_,'.. r. ' : Monday, Lake,- the shoemaker, the particulars of whose case we reported last Week, was brought up for re- examination, at Bow- street Office,, and his brother, whom he had robbed, nor appearing to prosecute,', he,. was set at liberty. Since file prisoner has been in confinement, a- letter has been received by Adkins, the officer, from Kelly, with whose Wife the prisoner absconded, dated Maidstone gaol, stating, . that the day after the prisoner was taken from' the house of Mrs. Kelly s father, she nail, him' taken up by a warrant from a Magistrate at Sitting bourne, charging him with having beaten her, and threatened her life, and that the Magis- trate had . committed him for want of bail to the House of Correction, . Maidstone, and earnestly re- questing That he ( Adkins) Would immediately send him a written account of the whole transaction, from tile time of his wife's first interview with the prisoner on the coach to that of his apprehension, in order that he may produce it when he is brought into Court, to answer the complaint at the Kent Assizes, which have, just begun. CRUELTY TO HORSES.— Monday, Thomas Sut- ton, a hackney coachman. was •• charged, with acts of cruelty to two burses, the property of Mr. Charles Gates, of " Cumberland- mews, Portman- square.— The prosecutor stated, that on Saturday last the prisoner went out with one of his coaches and a pair, of horses, when it was ascertained that he hod gone to Highgate, and left his horses in care of. another man, who made them jump and run, and flogge, d them. three- quarters of an hour, untill their flesh was completely scarified, lie then mounted the box, and drove down Highgate- hill at .1 lurious rate, flogging the horses till they broke the traces and pole- hook, by which the . coach was running over the horses ; but never made the least effort to stop until he perceived himself to be in danger, when he suddenly drove up against," a hillock and the vehicle was upset. The horses were bleeding all the way, and the , off one had- broken his leg short at the fetlock joint, not withstanding which animal kept on, until the coach fell and passed over his body, The brutal wretch jumped up and dragged them on to Kentish Town, where it was found necessary to kill the oft horse.— The horrible conduct of the prisoner was lattly substantiated by the evidence, and he was sentenced to one month's close confinement in the House of Correction, there to be kept Upon bread and water. impartiality in the discharge of his magisterlal duties'; amongst the most tried friends of- what is called the blue interest, who voted for .

Davies, and who, like Colonel Boggis, cleared thorugh the contest in- the borough with out the reproach disapprobation of either- party. third name is that of: Mr. Alderman Smythies, a . gentleman who had been ousted as. Alderman,' but who remains as an Assistant. This gentleman was unani- mausly recommended by the Mayor and- Select Body,! hence the late dissensions could not have produced his - • removal; and the only possible cause that can be ascribed is his success, as Mayer, in having supported Mr Hart Davies to succeed his father when the falter became a candidate for Br- stol, and when such secc* siou from the. representation of Colchester was considered a slight by his most zealous supporters. Brother Burgesses, I have no hesitation in stating! without the fear of refutation, thai Lord Sidmonth, if he had known the character,. siniuljou, aud politics of. these gentlemen, would never have sanctioned so gross a libel on their names ; and I am therefore obliged, in order to do justice to that Nobleman, to seek, some other explana- tion for this extraordinary occurnouce. What is it, or what can it be, but an indecent interference of the pel- son to Whom you delegate your i- fghis, Mr- Hart Davies, your Representative who availing himself of the power which you have given him, has ungratefully used it to destroy the very source whence it was derived. And I would ask you, Gentlemen, what can be the motive:—' That you may be the creatures to perpetuate that power; the tools of his ambition, the shadows only of what you were the mere phantom of lost liberty and Irnrhcd independence. I have not suggested this from anger or disappointment; I am myself no candidate for the « higher honours. von van bestow -, I am contained to be one . if the lowest grades in your Charter— an undignified Barges;; but though un- dignified, I have felt the glow of dignity while that cha- racter was free hud independent-: when it ceases to be such, I will forget the title I most prized. and sigh to Change places with the more successful foreigner. Brother Burgesses, we bate the varse and. chapter of this deception in a letter from Lord Sidmouth. His Lord Ship stales, that" the selection made was under sanctions and circumstances which not only justified but demanded it- — What are these sanctions and circumstances, which could justify such an insult on. three of the most loyal and independent of the Burgesses of Colchester? Who has dared to asperse their loyally : • Who their; private cha- racters? Has my Lord Sidmouth forgotten what is due to the country— that decisions are . not to be', made on ex parte evidence ? — No ! Brother Burgesses ; - but bis Lordship has been told, these are political fire- brands; these, men. will never permit your Lordship to pack the Representation for Colchester ; they are too proud lo be - dependent, and. will not return your Lordship's dearest friend, unless his conduct in Parliament is for the good of the country in general, and the borough of Colchester in particular. If we had been at his Lordship's- elbow, we could have said— If you wish to destroy the qttafb. rueat which the Burgesses of the ancient - borough of Colchester have for the present Administration,' if you wish to force them into the- arm's of an opposition faction, and destroy all the feeble hopes of Mr. Hart. Davies, at the next general election, tell them their unanimous voice has NO avail ; thai the High . Steward sli-, ill not be Lord Colchester.; that the list of Corporators shall he selected from those re- jected; and that three foreigners, Mr. Davies, Mr. John Round, and Mr. Daniel Sutton, shall be the grand arbiters of all their future destinies. Of the Learned . Serjeant Runnington I shall but briefly speak. If he was elected Recorder of the. borough by. the rule which all parties approved, he bad a just, claim to be replaced in that dignity. But, Gentlemen, supposing that " if" answered in the affirmative, his character amongst us is only judicial; a character carefully kept distinct by our Constitution, and does not Warrant him in interfering in the formation of the. Corporation. Brother Burgesses, the die is cast, and we have now either to dispute the stake, never having risked it, or pay the forfeit— our honour, our names, and our independence. If you are courageous enough to dissent, if you are ready rather to be without the feather of a mace, than, to have it as a symbol of your degradation, the path is open to victory Enrol yourselves in so noble a cause; . call for your leaders, . the gentlemen who have been instilled ;' ab- stracted from all political views, unite in defence of your borough rights. Thus you will be the advocates, not of factions opposition, but of true liberty. Demand of. Mr Davies the avowal of the steps he has taken ; and as he replies be- prepared to conduct yourselves at the next election. Be calm, peaceable, and moderate. Temperate remonstrances will prevail. vio!.* nt denntnciiilious expose you.- It is: not the cause of personal entity, but the cai. se of personal justice : aud highly as we respect some of the characters deputed to rule over us., lei not that respect induce us to give them a passport oyer the venerable threshold where repose Our birili- r. ig. hts and those of our children. Treasure in your minds, that the man who would once endeavour to degrade you, is unworthy of your future confidence; and look about your homes for. Some honour- able man, whom you can, with credit to yourselves and without the fear of ruin to him, send as your Repre- sentative to Parliament. be equally absurd to undermine the credit of 6 mail, whose personal debts bore such a premium in the money market, by publishing that fact, as to intimidate the foreigner English stockholder by unmeaning attempts to prove the present value of his properly is a proof that the finances of the nation are in jeopardy, and his capital thereby in eventual danger. A combination of circumstances frequently pro- duce fluctuations in the funds ; and these circum- stances always excite effects beyond their natural tendency. Thus, in rise and fall, they exceed the point at which these circumstances should fix the value; and hence, after an extraordinary rise, they. acquire an unnatural rate, from which, when the first excitement has subsided, they fall back to their real value. The late fail is therefore the common effect of great elevation, and does not in the least impair the happy promise of increasing wealth and restored confidence in the people. I invite your serious attention. Be true to yourselves. Form one indissoluble band, determined to be independent.. Then, and then only, may you laugh at the . net which . lias with so much art and industry been manufactured to en- snare you. . ... Colchester„ Aug. 4,1817. A BURGESS. To THE FREE- BURGESSES OF COLCHESTER. BROTHER BURGESSES, I have remained silent on a subject nearly connected with your interests, because T eiilerlained hopes fit at some one among you, more acquainted With the circumstances of the fraud which has been practiced, - would have ad- dressed you ; but as the time passes without remark, and the day is hastening when you will be called to give or refuse your sanction to the instrument which will enslave you, I should violate rtiy duty as a Burgess, if I did not stand forth, although singly, to expose the arts of your enemies, and invite you to that manly resistance which can alone save you and your posterity from the degrading situation of being Freemen only in name, and dragging, with that once enviable distinction, the disgusting chain of servility. The unhappy differences which have led to the loss of your Charter are not now within my province to trace back to their natural causes. It matters not to whom the error belonged ; unprofitable disputation has ensued, and peace is honourably restored between the combatants. It may be permissible for nip to express my regret that men, who have so nobly buried in forget fulness the schism which has so long divided them, should have been be- trayed into such proceedings; and although I should wish to obliterate for ever the occurrences which are past I cannot resist ( lie desire of doing justice to the candour an liberality of those Gentlemen of the Corporation, who, although defeaed by ( be course of taw, arc now actuated by the spirit of unanimity and friendship As the loss of the Charter arose from mere errors in point of form, without the slightest imputation on the persons removed from their corporate situation, the Prince • ttegent, in the same and in the behalf of bis Majesty, has been graciously pleased to renew it. And in the early stage of solicitation for this favour, it was gratifying to every friend to the King's Administration to leave, that Lord Sidmouth, in his official character, had adopted the equitable determination of restoring to their corporate rank, all those whom proceedings at law had ousted, leav-. ing the vacancies. to be filled by such competent ( let- sons as the, remaiuing" parts of the Corporation should think proper to recommend for that purpose. In execution of this plan, the Mayor and Corporation submiifcd, through Mr. Davies, one of the Members, a list for the Prince's . approbation ;— a list, not the creature of party, but ' one unanimously approved, in which the best interests of the borough were, secured, and its future respectability and consequence . established And what brother Burgesses, has been the very extraordinary re- sult? That a selection has been made in direct variance to the recommendation of the M ay or and Corporation ; some gentlemen of the ' first coiiseqtier. ee in the tow omitted; end others introduced who are not only fo- reigners, in the language of the old Charter, but absolute strangers to the Burgesses, and unacquainted with the! privileges or interests. As I wish to write in term which ail who read my tetter may understand, I shall not hesitate to' give the names of these gentlemen who have been thus insulted by omission, and suggest to your con sideration the probable means by which this shameful traffic has been accomplished. The first was Lieut - Colonel. Boggis, a gentleman whose attachment to the Government has been marked by a Zeabitts discharge of his military duty throughout the last war. who was nearly the senior Alderman, of no party in the late disputes, and the pacificator whenever his inter ference was accepted. This act, too Violent even for fac. tion to support, was no. sooner heard of than it called forth such remonstrances, as to defeat the very mallgnity which recommended it, and Lord Sidmouth was pleased, without denying or confirming the in salt intended that gentleman, to inform Sir W. Burronghs, who had written on the Sub- ject, that Colonel Boggis's name was then in the new ' charter!- •'•'-. --•' - -.- i.-!-.. THE COLCHESTER GAZETTE. The same cause produces the very opposite effects, when deduced by persons of contrary prin- ciples. This happy uncertainty, which applies to political discussions alone, enables the speculative and opposing factions to hold up their heads in a contest wherein truth and simple argument have long since, among all the sober and - plain thinking- part of the community, declared the victory. When the noise which the late measures of Par- liament called forth has ceased, or rather worn itself out by the indifference of those to whom it was addressed, when the parliamentary heroes are no longer on the public stage to furnish new' materials for cabal- and misrepresentation, ingenuity takes the lead, and the fruitful press" teems with its harvest in the shape of prophecy and gloomy pre- dictions. The stale of the public funds now attract the attention of the politician ; and although their unnatural depression, at the commencement of peace, was quoted as a proof of the disadvantageous terms under which it was established, the laterise is now adduced as a demonstration of the increase of our distress, and of the general exhaustion of our individual resources. The lessened interest is no proof, as pretended, of our increase of capital, but of our inability to pay its employment; and while America is termed, by the same class of patriots the only happy and flourishing Government in the world, we are told I hat our funds are fast Pouring into the treasury of that State, because they are so blessed as to be able to pay us at a double, if not treble, ratio for its use. • It is a new " mode of proving solvency by the amount of interest paid. We have been so grossly ignorant of. the terms wealth and independence, that we have • applied them where the security, for the capital was the inducement to lend; but we are to learn by the present doctrine the fallacy of such old- fashioned notions. 1 . The rise of the funds, from whatever cause, is' to us declaratory of several great advantages - . it proves that the vile and deadly attempts of th! e wicked have been defeated, and that confidence is restored among the people,; that the, national ob- ligations are valued at 20 per cent, beyond their intrinsic worth; that they are eagerly sought by all countries at that ratio ; and. that it would A private letter from Paris says, " The exiles, under the Ordinance of the 24th July, the old con- ventionalists, and some of ilia volunteer refugees, who were assembled in the Low Countries, have received orders lo evacuate that territory before the 15th'of- this month. It was on the ti7th of August, 1813, that the convention between the Allied Courts- was dated, which permitted an asysum to banished Frenchmen only in the three Moaarchies of Austria, Russia, and Prussia, excepting even from the latter the countries newly aequired along the Rhine. The greater part, consquently , took up their residence either in Silesia or Austria. This tardy execution of one of the political condi- tions of the Treaty of the 20th November has ce- ceived so much the more the hopes of these per- sons, . us many of them rather expected their real at the time when the Duchess de Berri was de- livered. It is said that the Government of the Netherlands has refused to make any exception to this general measure, even towards those whose age or character exempts, them from all suspicion of intrigues. This excessive rigour, on the present occasion, seems as surprising as the excesi. iv. to- lerance was before. Hence it is rumoured, that the late troubles at Brussels, Naur, and Liege, were much mine serious than was mentioned, and that the Government found it necessary to remove the exiled aliens, who, for two years, had been preaching under its protection, revolt, and insur- rection," The order which one of the German papers states has been recently given by the Russian Govern ment to the Woollen manufacturers of Yorkshire, for cloth to clothe the Russian army, however limited, in its mature, affords abiHidani proof of the superiority of British manufactures those of the Continent, and warrants the confident expectation, that in spite of all the efforts which dispolism in '.' the first instance and commercial rivallyyui the last have made to seclude them, they must eventually obtain extensive calculation.

On Tuesday was celebrated the fifth anniversary of the National Schools of this town ; .. displaying, as on former occasions, a scene of the most lively interest to the numerous and crowded groups of Spectators, who, at an early hour, had assembled from various parts of the town and neighbourhood , to witness it.. At half past ten, the Gentlemen and Ladies forming the Superintending Committees, to- gether with the Clergy of the several parishes', and many others, both Clergy and Laity, who had been pleased to take an active part in the support of this excellent institution, met, conformably to a pre- vious arrangement, at the school- house. Having inspected . the apartments dedicated to instruction, and noticed with approbation the decency and order which pervaded them, rendered interesting by the neat apparel and cheerful countenances of the children, they proceeded, about eleven o'clock, to St. Peter's Church, attended by the band of the 21st Regiment. First in the procession ( as it is hoped in every procession Where benevolence and charity preside they will be first) were the Clergy ; and they were followed by a most respectable as- semblage of Ladies and Gentlemen, who evinced by their attendance a marked and highly honourable zeal to support an institution so auspiciously begun, and . so well calculated in its results to promote the best interests of society. The. children of both sexes ( forming an aggregate of upwards of 300; closed the procession. The sermon was preached by the Venerable the Archdeacon of Loudon; who, in a judicious and well- timed discourse, impressed upon his auditors a conviction of the vast privilege of Revealed knowledge, and of the obligation of communicating it; of teaching its great and leading principles " to our sons anil our sons' suns." Nor were the admonitions front the pulpit unavailing : an immediate augmentation of 441. was added to the funds, by a collection iri the church ; and a further sum ol' 41l. 9s. was subsequently contributed in the Castle Bailey, and in Mrs. Round's gardens, which were obligingly opened for the reception of the company. These contributions, added to the Collection previously made for the purpose of pro- viding the children with a dinner, and of enabling them to participate in the festivities of the day funned an aggregate of about 1151. Preparatory sermons having been preached at St. Peter's Church by the Rev. Messrs. Simeon, Cox, and Hawtrey, a general meeting of the friends to the for- mation of an Auxiliary Society for this town and the eastern part of the county, in aid of the London So- ciety tor promoting Christianity among the Jews, was held at the New Room in the Lion Walk, On Wed- nesday, which was most numerously and respectably attended, upwards of thirty Clergymen being • present The chair was taken by John Mills; jun. £ mj. who in it very neat and appropriate speech, opened the business of the day*.— The Rev. C. S. Hawtrey, one of the Secretaries to the Parent Society, having elo- quently explained the object and design of the Parent Institution, the several resolutions were supported by the Rev. Messrs. Bull, of London, Bull, of Tatingstone, Cox, Doveton, Marsh, Nottidge, Simeon, Storry. Trust, Way, and Messrs. Burgess and Mustard A great additional interest was excited in the minds ' of the assembly by the presence of two converted Rabbies ( one of whom has been recently ordained a Deacon of the Church of England) and tile Sultan Kategherry Crimgherry, a Prince of Tartary, also converted to the Christian faith, from the Mahomedan creed, who severally addressed the meeting in a style of truly affecting simplicity.— The donations, collec- tions, and various contributions in support of the in- stitution already amount to upwards Ot' 3001. The Wool Fair of this town, held at the Cups Inn, on Wednesday last, was most respectably attended. The chair was tilled by Mr. Tower, ill consequence of the absence of Mr. Western, who, we understand, is now at Buxton, for the re- establishment of his health. A'long statement, containing nint h information on the present state of our woollen and worsted manu- factures and trade, was made by Mr. Tower, on the opening of the business of the day. One of the most, striking features, was the fact, that the import of foreign woo!, for the year ending the 5th of January last, was 8,117, H64lbs. being litt e more than half the quantity imported in either of the two preceding years, while at the same time the declared value of exported woollens, during the same period, amounted to 8,404,488!. sterling, tie further slated that the comparative difference between the export of cloth and import of wool., fur the subsequent half- year, had been still greater, though the accounts were not yet made lip; and that the demand for our yioth, both fiueaiid coarse, but particularly the former, was hourly increasing. There were pressing orders, in particu- lar from Russia, and many parts of the Continent, and business had again revived extensively for Ame- rica. ile added the curious fact of some small orders being iu execution for the South American Insur- gents After warm congratulations on the very im- proved and improving slate of the country, in its trade, both domestic and foreign, when compared with this time twelve months, and . drawing most favourable conclusions from the promise oft ho approaching har- vest, both at home and abroad, lie finally recom- mended the growers of the best improved South- Down flocks not to sell miller 2s. per lb.; but as the feeding of wethers, purchased when lambs, is a system more prevalent in this county than that of breeding, to such persons he advised that sales might be effected at from Is. 6d. to Is. 9< l. I bis distinction in the re- lative value of Down wool steuied to be acquiesced. in, both by buyers and sellers; but if we are to judge from the unwillingness to purchase oil the terms re commended, the same ' acquiescence i'u ( lie real value did not secui apparent ih Tii'e buyers. A few sales of wool, principally of wethers, were made at l<) d.; and some long wool, mostly of the Kent breed, sold at 1511. per lb. .;.••.,, On Tuesday the return match of - Cricket was played at Dedham, the Manningtree and Mistley Club against Dedham and Ardleigh, whjch was won by the latter. Refreshments were provided on the ground, and after the match about thirty gentlemen retired to the Sun Inn, where they par took of a most excellent dinner, and the day con- cluded with the greatest conviviality. In the evening of yesterday se'nnight, after hav- ing changed horses at the King's Head, and at the instant it was turning the Black Boy corner, in Chelmsford, the Coggeshall coach upset. There were several passengers within and without; John Griggs, Esq. of Messing, sat upon the box with the coachman ; Mr. Argent, Mayor of this town and Mr. Stone, of Kirby, as well as several others were without side; hut those only, whose names we have mentioned, received material injury. Mr Griggs was most severely bruised; we are happy however, to announce, that he was on Thursday so fur recovered, as to be removed from the Black Boy Inn to his own residence. Mr. Stone is so very seriously hurt, that he is likely to be confined for some time at the King's Head; though his wounds are not of a dangerous description. Mr. Argent received a less severe injury, being capable of proceeding homeward the following morning. Thm. coachman received a violent contusion of the knee, and was otlienvards much bruis& d. • We an informs ! that a gentleman has backed Eaton the pedestrian, receiving two to one, that lie accomplishes tile task of walking from this town to Loudon in one day, and returning the next, starting from Whitechapel church, and so on for twenty successive days. The match is ex- pected to excite considerable interest, iiC conse- quence of the number of- miles he will have to proceed on a p'nblic road. He is to commence his laborious, undertaking from this town licit week. Yesterday William Curtis, Francis Squirrel, and Peter Polley., three yearly servants to Mr. A.

[ Concluded from our last.] CIVIL SIDE. HEPPER v. FISHER — t his was an action to recover the sum of 9tii ? S. the amount of the plaintiff's charge for sur- veying and measuring certain building.-, the property ol the defendant, and commission on the patches build- ing- liiaterials on his - account— Mr. Marryat an* d Mr Espinasse conducted the case for the plaintiff.— The plain- tilt is a surveyor at Chelmsford, a. id the defendant the proprietor < ti>< t nU'uager of soveral provincial theatres, aiiioiig'St others, those - of Woodbridge, Swanbam, and ' Eye. lie had baill file theatre at Woodbridge and I. at at Eye, aitd'iu thi; course of the work' he had employed the plaintiff to survey ami estimate the bricklayer's and car- penter's worK and charges ami ill one particular instance, ha had directed him to make purchases of some of the - building materials of the late horse and foot barracks at . Matdou, for ihe pi. rpo- e of coiivertioer then) to the use of ttieilew theatre's. ' t'hia latter purchase amounted to : l7() t. and it appeared1 that tho plaimittf had attended three days « t Maldon ttf ilialte the- biddings at the attc- tioo, superintend the pulling down the materials, anil shipping them for tbelr destitution. For his i ervie. es on tiiat occasion there Was an item iu his account of - 2 1.4s beitiff a'charge at the rale *) f sevc « - at) d a halt per cent commission, The othet items of the account consisted of travelling expences and a charge of two and a half per cent, for surveying tile work done at the theatres. . Several surveyors were called to prove the reasonableness of the plaintiff's charges.— Mr. Chalk, the auctioneer who sold the buildios: materials in question, prov'd that he saw the plaintiff attending at the sale, and that he pur- chased the lots in question, but he could not speak to . a. y other part of the plaintiff's services.— On cross- examina-- tion by Mr. Nolan, witness said his commission upon the sales by auction effected at the barracks did not exceed two and a half per cent, and that charge included his trouble of lotting the, materials, making' out catalogues, drawing up advertisements, and his services at the sale, besides the risk of collecting the money — Mr. Nolan, in in animated address to the Jury on behalf of the defen- dant, admitted that the plainiiii must have a verdict for something, but the amount of his damages must be go verned by a rational consideration of the evidence upon which this enormous claim was founded. The Jury ought te be extremely jealous of the testimony of surveyors, who had a very strong interest iu establishing customary Charges. At all times Judges had cautioned Juries against receiving with implicit credit . the testimony of such wit nesses, in a case where they would naturally concur in establishing a rule from which they must derive a com- mon benefit. A custom such as had been attempted to be proved in this case reminded him of the allusion of a very eminent Judge, who exclaimed, in a cause somewhat like the present, " Oh! from survey- surveyors defend us!" Mr. Justice Dallas interposed, and reminded the I. earned Counsel of another pertinent observation of the same Learned Judge upon the same point, that the evidence surveyors to prove a customary charge was Just the same as proving a custom to rob oo Hounslow Heath, because u great number of robberies took place there.—( A Laugh — Mr. Nolan thanked his Lordship for bringing to his recollection a comparison which was certainly applicable to the present cas-. The Learned Counsel contended that very few of the items in the plaintiff's account were proved in evidence upon which the Jury could rely par- ticularly the item for surveying the biitldhlgs, it appearing that the bricklayer's and carpenter's work had not been surveyed at all. But as to the plaintiff's charge for his services at Maldon, it was the most unconscionable he had ever heard of. It was not saying too much when he ven- tured to put Mr Chalk in the same scale of respectability with the plaintiff, and if that gentleman's charges could form any criterion for the Jury to act upon, there must be a very considerable reduction iu this Item of the plaintiff's account. It appeared that Mr Chalk had charged only two and a half per cent. commission for his services, al- though his trouble fi: t. d labour, independent of hi- ris. t. were quite equal to what the plaintiff had bestowed, who charged the enormous commission of seven and a half per cent.- . The Jury taking all the case into their serious con- sideration would give the plaintiff no more than the justice of his case demanded, or an honest man ought to receive —> Mr. Justice Dallas summed up the case with suitable . observations, and the Jury found for the plaintiff— da mages 80l.

The plaintiff is a farmer, living at tirTghtiin^ sen, the dcfemlant is al o afartuer and a cattle salsemau. The plaintiff was iu the habit frequently of gi> iug to Colchester market, which is held on a Saturday, as was the defendant Witness re- membered being nt the. Red Lion Inn, at Colchester, on . Saturday, the 21th of May last. Was iu the bar, and saw the parties there A very strong di'.- pute took plane be- tween them, which appeared to be about some beasts which defendant had sold plaintiff. After much vehemence of language had been used, Mr. Richardson told Mr. Simons he could accuse him of something, and if lit? did not for- bear, he would say it out, which would be very unpleasant to him. They kept upon the subject of the dispute for some time longer, when the defendant said lo the plaiutltf, " that he, ( the piaiutitf.) had attempted to commit an un- natural crime upon hjui at Mr James Harris's, since de- ceased. 1* Every body knew where he oieant the trans- action to have taken place. The defendant did net sav when, but witness understood it to relate to a period five or six years ago, and which witness heard the defeudaul or sorn * body else say W'as about that time. The defendant said they had drank tea together al Harris's: they had boon drinking freely, and they, v. em: j.^ st going home— they therefore went to lied together', and that tin:, attempt took place about six in tiie morning. This was the substance of what was said. Plaintiff seemed v.- ry aogrv, and said lie would take legal proceedings against " d ' feud- ant. There were four or five other persons present, fainmrs. iu ( he neighbourhood, frequenting Colchester market — On beiug cfoss- eXaraUed. he said the dispute, began by the plaintiff attacking ' he- defendant, and accusing him of not dealing honourably, and tt. , rendering fair accounts of sales. Plaintiff charg-- I tb" did'nadaut with having made a large profit by a heif- r pn)- t.- h^ scd of Mr. Crouch, by giv'ing a fntse ieooaat vf the sale. The defeiUIant, how- ever, made - if afjiear satisfactorily to the company that be had not made an untair profit by the sate of the heifer. Iu the course of I he dispute both parties made us. v of suet language as witness never wished to hear again. De- leudaut, oirchargisg the plaintiff with an attompt to com- mit an unnatural crime, particularized the time and cir- ( iaaistances, when pro. vuked by the plaintiff, and persisted iu the charge.— Robert Grimwood, a Waiter at file Red Lion at Colchester; Was so on the 241U of May last. Plaintiff was accustomed to, use the Red Lion for tour ur live years. T'nft defendant aiso . used the same house. • Heard the'defendant lo. the plaintilf, in tlio'bar,"" I'll take my oath- tiiat you ottered lo cusutnil'au uauatural. cfnue upon my, at Mr. Harris's."

John Cowlen state.) tiiat the plaintiff was- a carpenter by trade, and kept a litfletshop at Witham. On the llth of January he saw the defendant break open the plaintiff's shop- door with an iron crow, ft wua about eie. njii o'clock. The door was' locked at the tinve the ire> pa « s was comniitted. Crickmore entered the house after forcing ojwu the hatch- door. A person named Harwood followed the defendant into the house, and t.. ey. iook away a pair of scales, weights, a round table, ami other articles, lo the value of about 31. and upwards, ~ Tne defouoaut was a shopkeeper, and sold butter, iu wiiica ulso the plaintiff dealt. The plaintiff's wife w as at tins time extremely ill, aud appeared very much alkrined. -. She had two young children. The goods were token away by the defendant, who afterwarus told wit- ness tiiat tltts ailair should not cost him a shilling, aud tie > . ped tiiat the case would be brought into Court, bc- ottLnn lie expected to get something by it. The defendant < vas Constable of Witham Parish.— James Fuller lived in , tie plaintiff's neighbourhood. In January last, the de- . eiictaiit borrowed an iron crbw ofthe witness, and he saw him breaking the plaintiff's door open. This witness con- firmed the testimony of Cowlen.— Mrs. Cowlen proved, tha: t on the day of tlie trespass- she saw the plaintiff's wife, who was extremely ill, and had remained so ever since, in consequence of the fright. Mr. Walford, on behalf of the defendant, contended that the action w; ti not maintainable, as the defendant had acted . u the execution of the warrant entrusted to his care. But in al| events, he submitted that it was not a case for any thing more than nominal damages.— Mr. Cunnington, Clerk to the Magistrates of the Witham Division, proved, that the defendant was a Constable, regularly appointed; and that the defendant had received an order to serve upon the plaintiff to pay the church rate 2s.; and likewise that a distress warrant was issued by the Magistrates, in con- sequence of the non- payment of the rate by. the plaintiff, to levy the rate, together with the costs, amounting to 10s. — Mr Thomas Harwood, an appraiser, living at Witham, went with the defendant, ou the 10th of January, to the house ol the plaintiff. Saw the plaintiff's wife; she was then in perfectly good health. The goods were not then seized, and the defendant and himself went away, and re- turned two or three times afterwards, but they found the door locked Saw the plaintiff on one of these occasions, when he said, that the defendant was on the right side of the door to run away, and told his wife to keep the door locked. Next morning the door was forced, and goods were taken away, and sold at the hammer in Witham Market, for one guinea, which he considered more than a quarter of their value. Mr Justice Dallas stated to the Jury, that the action was maintainable, inasmuch as, by law, the defendant had no right to break open the plaintiff's outer- door, unless so authorized by his warrant. The question of damages was purely for the consideration of the Jury.— The Jury found a verdict for the plaintiff— Damages 5s. Grant r. Bennell.— This was an action for the use aud occupation of a messuage, called Baldwins, and lnO acres of laud, at 20 it. per annum, let by the plaintiff, Mr. William Grant, of Braintree, to the defendant — It ap- peared that there was a written agreement between the parties for tbe demise ofthe premises in question, which not being produced it} . evidence, Mr. Justice Dallas di- rected the Jury to fluff a verdict for tlie defendant, which I hey found accordingly.

Elizabeth relating to. bankruptcy — Plaintin replied that the trespass was corn- milted without justification.— Mr. Marryatt, Mr. Gurney, aud . Mr. Comyn appeared for the plaintiff, aud the case opened was tins:— the plaintiff formerly carried on the business of an insurance broker, io partnership with a persou named White, in Broad- streef, London, and be had a country- house at Chingford, iu this county, '^ he firm had the misfortune to become bankrupts, and iu conse- quence of their misfoi tune, which anise entirely from the dithcuhics of the times, a Considerable majority of. their cr ditors, at a meeling- for that purpose, liberally Con- sent!*) . to, give them up their, heuseitold furniture. Esti- maiit- were drawn of the value of that part of their pro- perly respectively, and it appearing that the value of the plaintiit's furniture exceeded that of his partner by 10( 11. and the creditors being desirous that no greater advantage - tiould be given one partner over the other, said, that if ' he plaintitf could get a friend to advance him the 1001. he should have all tbe furniture delivered up to his controul and possession- Accordingly, a friend of . the plaintiu' camc forward with the money, w hich being paid to the creditors, tiie plaintiff was immediately re possessed of his household property,- and a roeeipt was given for 1001 One ofthe assignees, however, being adverse to Ibis pro ceeding, determined lo counterwork it, and prevailed upon the landlord of the house at Chingford to distrain for the rent then due, which amounted only to one quarter. The landlord afterwards finding that lwt had be, en de- ceived, withdrew the men in possession,' iqwni being paid tlie" rent. In two days afterwards, tiie defendants ( the first of whom was an auctioneer) forcibly entered the house, at the instance of llie adverse assignee, and carried away all the goods, which had been previously sold to the . plaintilf,. by the ' majority of the creditors. For thistrt's- pass tt're'presetit action was brought; and the question was, whether it was maintainable by tile plaintitf, who, it appeared, had not . obtained his certificate.— Upon tiie opening of t'. ie Case, Mr Justice Dallas was of opinion, that the action could not lie, upon the general principle of the bankrupt laws -, ttiat' property acquired by a bankrupt before his certificate is obtained, was the property of his as Ijjucss, and therefore, notwithstanding tlie hardship of tlie case, the plaintiff Was nonsuited.

MONODY ON THE DEATH OF - MADAME DE STAEL HOLSTEIN. • Methought her soul Faded in light, even as a glorious - star Is hid amid the splendors of the morn." CITY OF THE PLAGUE. Could virtue, genius, stay the Heetlng breath, Or in Us Hight arrest the mounting soul, De Stael thy form would not have slept in death, Nor we be call'd our sorrows to coutroul. Ami is that form inanimate become ? From it withdrawn the bright etherial ray, Whites lustre, to the shadows of the tomb, Radiant still beam't^ and gently pass'd aw& y? » Has thy eventful tale at length been told * Thy hopes, thy fears, now gain'd their final rest! And is the scroll of time to thee unrolPd ? And art thou now companion of the blest ? Yes! not beyond the precincts of the e; rave, Shall thy pure spirit Death's dominion own ( That which to life its richest blessings gave,+ in heav'n shall shine with splendour here unknown. That fire etherial, Whence the glowing flame Hlum'd thy mind, and ( III'd thy heart below, Continual rising, did its source proclaim. But with thy mouldering form no part can know. Imprison'd in the tomb indeed must be The clay- Cold form,— be clos'd the speaking eyes; The voice be mute that once with ecstasy In notes of praise aspir'd to yonder skies! But to the spirit who shall hounds prescribe? Its future destination who unveil? Who its immortal glory may describe? For ev'n a seraph's eloquence must fail. Yet nature prompts the sigh, the flowing tear, * For those belov'd, who in the grave repose; Affection lingers round the funeral bier, Nor duty's painful offices forgoes. J Ah, y'j !|| whose memory traces those blest hours In which a mother led the infant thought, And smil'd exulting as she mark'd the powers That quiet perceiv'd whate'er her genius taught: Nor rested there— implanted virtuous zeal, And bade the heart expansive seek its joy In the bland power the wounds of grief to heal, And soothe that anguish it would fain destroy. Ah ! when remembrance hurries down the tear That SIIJ the eye with grief's sad vigils dim, And bending o'er a mother's hallow'd bier. With bursting heart ye chaunt the funeral hymn! Children of grief, praise then Jehovah's name, Whose breath, inspiring, form'd the living soul Eternal in its essence to remain, Though countless ages shall successive roll. And ye, whose breasts her sentiments have warm'd, And oft, responsive to her magic hand, Have felt the heart improv'd, the mind inform'd, Exalt thy view to yon angelic baud : And while imagination paints her there, All consecrae to Gad her soul's bright flame ; Stil to her volumes may ye oft repair, And there, with virtuous feeling, kindred claim. Those feelings still undying in the breast, Are they not pledges of eternity ? They were not given to rob the soul of rest, Call forth the tear, or wake the aaguish'd sigh J Creative goodness gave litem as the ties To bind this life to that which is above; And guide the soul, aspiring, still to rise To realms of light, of knowledge, and of love! M. * She died in her sleep. f The mental faculties | She had expressed a wish that ler corpse should b attended three days before being forever enclosed; and lor three days Augustus de Stael did not quit the chamber of his departed mother, nor yielded to any one the last sad , duty of attending her remains to the grave. | j To ner children. Cotchener, Aug. 1, 1817. To the EDITOR. of the COLCHESTER GAZETTE. SIR— IN the present dearth of political subjects of discussion, you may not object to give the following observations a place in your paper; for, as they art1 connected with a character so eminent as Madame tie Staer, they may not be uninteresting to some of join readers. They were suggested by observing you had copied the remarks upon her genius and character from the Times paper of Juny 19- h, whichr probably, owe their quick circulation to the decided and im posing tone they assume; but permit me, with dim- deuce, to say, they are calculated to give a very false impression of those writings, the tendency of which they profess to ananize, and are certainly destitute 01 • that candour which ought ever to guide the pen of criticism. The writer appears to have had a very va, ue and imperfect iea of the feeling heart and virtuous enthusiasm of Madame de . Stael, when he says " he is not sure if her moral system will always bear the light," and perhaps with propriety might b appled to him the observation of De Staer herself— " These are the persons who conceive nothing, who excuse nothing that is involuntary ; they have made a human heart according to their own will, in order to judge it at their leisure." But the person who now addresses you thinks the may safely appeal to every individual possessed of taste, feeling, and judgment, to pronounce, if the writings IN question have not a powerful tendency to purify that taste, to ele ate those feelings, to invigorate that judgment; nor can be envy the apathy of those who can rise from the mental feast unsatisfied. Prejudice itself must allow that She traces with a masterly and accurate pencil the springs of human action, that she follows up the source of sentiment, that she discloses each movement of the heart to our view, and that by her luminous page we may find our intellect enlightened, and be- led to a ku wiedge of oursi ves. Any thing that as- sists us in this important inquiry, which even dis- poses us to it, must sirengthen the mental powers, must be favourable to virtue, const quently must be useful, " for we must learn to think justly before we Can act virtuously." That " when she counsels the reader to virtue lie dots not feci more virtuously disposed," ought not surely to be imputed to her, but rather attributed to thai want of sns. eptibility to what is fair and good in those upon whom they fail to produce that effect ; for whit ethical writer urges stronger motives lo virtue, or places her in a fairer light to. win our love and excite our imitation? Dues she not tell us the practice of it is inseparably connected With happiness; that It consists in obtaining ah empire over ourselves, in renouncing our own will, and in that regulation of the selfish principle which urges to exalted deeds, to benevolence and expansive good- will ? Surely it was not candid to name Hie ulluring, author of " Delphine" and " Corrine," and pass over in sbeme the energetic il ustrator of the essential qualities of " Happiness,"— the literary and moral historian, the filial biographer and memorialist of a. parent's virtue and talent. It is granted that in her Works of . imagination we observe too much of that morbid sensibility which frequently accompanies genius, and throws a shade over souls of uncommon elevation; and that by sub- stituting an internal consciousness of right( for the respect due to, and the observance of the institutions of society, she has left the actions of men to be guided by a feeling too indefinite to be certain, or consistently virluous; and I am far from being a defender of a system so fruitful of error and misery. I am perfectly, aware that those who derive protection and support from society, are justly required to sacrifice and re- strain those affections and passions which militate against its laws; and surely Madame de Stael, by shewing the misery which the infringement of general order produces to the violators, has virtually con- demned those who depart from the obligations of duty, and, led by the illusions of the imagination, dis- regard those exterior circumstances which ought to guide the conduct of a social being. She is accused of concealing her moral system under the folds of a voluptuous sensibility. How far that epithet is justly applied, it is not the present purpose to inquire; perhaps luxuriant would have more clearly defined that affection which glowed Willi such bright- ness in the heart, and communicated such animation to the character and writings of this eminent woman. It cannot be denied thai she studied her fellow- beings closely, and an attentive reader of her works will admit, accurately. She well knew that the he art of man is seldom led to virtue by the calculations of the understanding, but must be won through the medium of the feelings; that by tracing in thee heart of another those sensibilities which g ow in his own, he may be instructed to detect its weaknesses, and to oppose their insidious encroachments. And do we not often see the higher faculties of the heart and understanding united, and all. that is elevated in morals associated with all that is energetic in passion? They live but in each oilier, and the attempt to se- parate is to destroy; from the same altar the different flames arise, but, uniting as they ascend, glow with • inextinguishable ray. This etherial fire lived in the soul, and shed its lucid beams over the writings of De Stael. She was a bright s: ar that irradiated our hemisphere, and which, to use her own expressive words," will leave behind it a deep trace and a path of light," which lime itself shall not obscure. I am aware thai I may be called an enthusiast, and cannot but admit the charge ; but " there is no duty, there is no pleasure, there is no sentiment, which does not borrow from enthusiasm a charm, which is still in perfect unison with the simple beauty of truth." That I have not now exceeded the bounds of that divine principle, a reference to the ethical and histori- cal writings of Madame de Stael is alone sufficient to prove; of course it is to those especially my observa- tions app. y.— 1 remain, Sir, respectfully, July 3o', 1817. HENRY. To the EDITOR of THE. COECHESTER. GAZETTE. SIR— I did not expect to have seen in your Paper any notice taken of a letter which I addressed to you on public men and public measures and although ii is evident your still believe that coereive measures were necessary to put down the spirit of jacobinism, ( as your party please to call it.) yet I was pleased lo find You wished to be understood you class Yourself ! with the true independents, though I must confess I cannot see it in that light. You stiil believe the re- ports were true, that a number of people, at Man- chester, were to collect for the purpose of destroying that town by fire— then march to London and bring about a revolution. Was there any thing more all surd or unlikely > What was 10,000 unarmed men to do with 1000 armed under the controul of Parliament, or at least Ministers? Was not all this alarm created by them themselves to stifle the voice of reform, which no serious man will deny is absolutely necessary for the preservation of our favoured island. The House of Commons and the Ministers are corrupt beyond what they ever were; and is it likely the latter will ever lift one finger to effect this much desired purpose without the voice of the people? Let Ministers bring immediately the prisoners now immured in different prisons to open trial, and let them not refuse the Lord Mayor of London and the Gentlemen of Norwich coming forward to swearon oath many of the charges which have been put into that abominable green bag, nest of villany and untruth, void of truth. Were the , disposed without hesitation to try these victims of their perfidy, it would at once convince the world that they were actuated by pure and justifiable prin- ciples, and that there was sufficient ground to secure their persons. Bill these poor deiuded people have been led on by the very men who Ministers employed to cover their proceedings. I firmly believe no shot or stone was ever thrown at the Regent's carriage; it is now believed it was the act of one of his com- panions in the carriage, purposely to get the liberties of the subjects placed in the hands of a corrupt Mi- nister. The eyes of the people must be a little more open than they were at the opening of Parliament, by the exposure of some of the vilest of practices I happened to be at Manchester soon after the terrible explosion was to take place, and I was informed by a particular friend of mine, that had it from the in- dividual himself, of an occurrence which look place at that time. A worthy Quaker, who lives on Ard- wick Green, about one mile from Manchester, went, with three or four more of his neighbours, o a very active Magistrate near him, who is also a Parson, to solicit his subscription for the purpose of establishing a night- watch round the Green, to preserve their ducks and chickens. They were introduced to his Lordship, who was reclining on his sofa; when the worthy Quaker informed him what thev came for. He, misunderstanding them, said—' Gentlemen, if you think there is any danger, I will immediately call out the soldiers, for I can do that at any time. But our friend soon corrected him, and told him they had nothing to do with that business, they only wanted a little money to establish a private watch. This al- tered his countenance, and his apparent activity, and he told them, that really he bad been so much fatigued of late by heading the soldiers, and that he must request them to call another day, rolling himself again on his sofa, If it had been necessary to call out the military, this friend of the people and King and Con- stitution would have been glad to have had the op- lortuinty of driving, at the sword's point, a few poor half- starred weavers into I he New Bailey of I hat place. — I still insist, notwithstanding your friend would make you believe otherwise, that there never was, nor is, reason to apprehend any alarm, because it's been the invention of malicious and ill- designing men, sent down on purpose. A FRIEND TO TRUTH AND TO OLD ENGLAND. cram down the throats of the people the measures it has adopted. Bin it appears that the quiet Quaker within a mile of Manchester was alarmed, and that the neighbour- hood wished, al their own expence, to have a night- watch for their protection. Yes, replies our Correspondent, but not to guard their houses and their lives, but only to take care ofthe hen roost. May we not echo his terms— How absurd and unlikely" that the prudent Quaker,& c. should wish to preserve their chickens by a nightly charge, which would render them too expensive for any but the Regent's table Bat here the murder is out. There were no plots nor consp racies— all was honesty and propriety ; but, ju order to get a rap at that audacious patriot the Ma- gistrate, a little truth was obliged to be submitted to, for the purpose of rendering the invidious poison palatable Of the green bag we know nothing ; of the spies and in- formers" we are contented to believe but half; and thai half is, that such men, if employed, were used for the detection, not eneburagement, of crimes ; and that, akin with their profession, their evil passions have made them abuse the vile err And, as applicable to themselves, of their employers. Let our " friend," be thankful that the gracious power of the law deters his deluded colleagues from a nearer ap- proach to its tribunal. Let him be grateful that the mercy of his Governors extends to prevent crimes rather thai, to exert its justice to punish them ; and let him learn, that' all his rhetoric cannot divert us from the holiest £ ath of being the advocate of preserving, by temporary sacri- fices, the glory a nd independence . of the Monarchy. We take leave; of our Yorkshire Commentator, by so- liciting him, when in future lie wishes to be our accuser, that he will no t, together with the pain of his reproach, make us liable.- to the expence of his postage. Our itinerant friend, who addressed us from Thirsk two or three weeks ago, has favoured us with a new edition of his zeal, with the post- mark of York, lie shall not accuse us of being such bigots to our opinion, as to suppress his notable atten pts to make us converts. We therefore pre- sent his last dispatch. We assure him, that, however we err in putting our intentions i. 10 practice, we are the friends to truth and to Old I' gland;" and we wish no fairer claim to those pretensions I! an results front the refutation of his do. • tries He adheres to the assertion of all the disaffected, viz that there were no riots at Manchester; that there were no f MI S among the honest inhabitants ; and that the whole of" the danger was the stratagem of Government, to Field Culture of Beans as a Preparation for Wheat.—.' Sir John Sinclair has lately proposed, as a general practice, the well known method of top- ping beans, in order to accelerate their podding, and obtain an earlier harvest, by which the proper sued season of wheat may besaved, which is often retarded, perhaps to the loss of three or four pounds, per acre, in the wheat crop. John Low- ther, Esq. M. P. for Cumberland, has practised ibis method over a great extent of laud, during some: years, at the expence of about - is. per acic. ' I he proper time to top the beans, which may be done will) any sharp knife or reaping- hook, is when the first blossoms begin to drop. 1 he timely removal of these parts, where the insects chiefly lodge, materially contributes to the health and vigour of the plant, increasing the weight of the crop, and the harvest is thus advanced at least a fortnight. ' The crop is also sooner dried and ready to carry ; the tops, when left, retaining much mois- ture. Beans should be cut as soon as the eye has attained a deep colour, and if the weather be dry, instantly put into small sheaves, not exceeding six. or eight inches diameter, and conveyed to another held to dry, that the bean- et h may be immediately ready for wheat sowing. The beans, if cut in a good slate, will be fit to carry in seven or eight days, if to he staked on pillars. Wheat has often been thus successfully put in, without the plough, i, y m rely searifying the land. ANTIQUITIES.— Two miles from the gate of. St. Sebasman, on the dechvity of a little hill, there lias lately been discovered an antique villa. This habitation evidently appears to have been burnt and plundered. A large court, surrounded by a biazza, lights the ground ° story on three sides only; the tourth side tonus an open portico, with a uouble range of columns, which laces a tilth valley: beantiful mosaics in good preservation, adorn almost all the apartment- : one represents a vessel surrounded by tritons and sea monsters: the others have several compartments. The walls' are for the most pari covered with marble in the lower parts. The portico or piazza round the court is coverea with paintings in pannels and borders, which are not well executed. A stair- case leads to a hither story, where some beaulitui iragments of a female statue have been found. The excavations here are still going on.— Opposite this villa, on th, other sid of the valley, an ancient house has been discovered, of which only one apartment is visible, with mosaic in figures. It is hoped thai something interesting will be found, because several v ses have b^ en discovered entire, in a kind of subterraneous gallery. A letter from Napl s says— ' A very beautiful bronze statue, about six Neapolitan palms in height, has just been discovered at Pompeji. It is naked, except that a very small piece of drapery covers part of the back, and lulls over the arms. The beauty of die, figure, and the sweet expression of the face, authorize the conjecture that it is an Apollo or. a Bacchus, the two most beautiful gods of the ancients. The elegance and correctness of the design place litis statue among the finest antique bronzes. It was immediately conveyed to the bourbon Museum. this is the first bronze> statue found at Pompeji since the commencement of the researches, as the bust found last mouth is the first of that metal yet discovered there. There is every reason to believe that the treasures of flu Bourbon Museum will soon be considerably aug- mented. ' A Philadelphia Paper of the 5th ult. says— " from a gentleman « ho arrived in town last evening, we learn thai the steam- boat intended to ply between Norwich and New Loudon, having proceeded a few miles on her way from the former place, the boiler burst, and several persons were dangerously scalded. It seems some alarm was given, when all the passengers ran on deck, where they had scarcely arrived, when the explosion took place, and nearly destioyed the cabin and furniture, ( lad ( hey remained in the cabin many of them pro- bably would have lost their lives.'' BARNET, THE PEDESTRIAN.— Saturday morn- ing, precisely at eight o'clock, this veteran com- menced his extraordinary undertaking, to walk 5i) 0 miles in 250 successive hours. He did the first two miles in fourteen minutes and a quarter, and if he continues in the flow of spirits with which he has commenced, there can be little doubt of his completing his arduous task. MKLANCHOLY CASE.— On Saturday an inquest was held at the Coach and Horses, opposite Somer- set House, Strand, on view of the boay of Ann Tull, a girl about six years of age>. It appeared that the girl was the daughter of a first floor lodger at Mr. Paggetts, grocer, and that Mr. Paggett, who was very fond of her, having requested Iter to pronounce the word " picture," which she did not do readily, gave her a shake, on which she fell on the floor in convulsions, and died a lew hours after- wards. Every medical assistance was afforded by Mr. Stanton, who deposed that tile body bore no marks of violence. A lodger deposed, thai Mr. Paggett, oil her coming in, was greatly affected, and exclaimed, " Oh, 1 am afraid i have shook the child's neck out." It was deposed that he paid her every attention.— The foreman of the Jury thought the verdict ought to be manslaughter, but a majority being against it, a verdict of— Died by the visitation of God— was received. A Mr. Edward Ball advertises in The Dublin Evening Post of Tuesday se nnight, that he'' will ex- hibit, utter six days' notice, for the sum ol' 300,0t) 0l. ( hat long- wished for perpetual motion, now going on its rapid velocity, without tile aid or assistance of man or beast, springs, weights, or balances, steam, wind, Or Water, or any other visible assist- ance, and will Continue, in its rapid velocity, as long as a body of any substance lasts."— This art, he observes, had hitherto defeated every attempt, but he achieved it at the first trial, with a few minutes study, and three hours labour. A curious shoe, which appears to be one piece of leather, dressed in some manner, but not tanned, as the hair of the animal is still visible, was dug up last week by a man getting peat, from the depth of five feet below the surface, on the moss belonging to T. Lowther, Esq. near Dornoch, in Scotland. It is open before from the toe upwards, but laced with a thick leathern throng. In the immediate neighbourhood of Bath, a farmer last week took down a rick of very old wheat, for the purpose of having it thrashed out ; when what he had estimated at fifteen sacks, barely produced five, the remainder having been devoured by mice. There were- upwards of a bushel and a half of these destructive vermin caught, besides a numerous tribe that escaped. The wife of a vine- dresser of the department of the Meuse, digging lately around a vine, found a pot tilled with pieces of gold, the greater number dated 1005, and struck with the impression of Adalberg and Elizabeth of Austria, & c. A letter, dated Dover, July ' 2!>, says.-—" Being at Flushing lately, I was not a little entertained by occasionally meeting many of our English free traders at the public- houses, and at the table d'hotes; and as these gentry are communicative to each other over the bottle and pipe, I overheard many curious observations ; but I was much edified one day by listening to a conversation between a decent looking Englishman and one of the smug- glers, who appeared to know him. The smug- gler boldly demanded how he dared shew him- self in a privileged place, On enquiry, this person « as Captain of an English revenue vessel, than in the roads. He said to tile Captain, he could, by making a signal, have him killed in a moment. I lie other declared he did not come to look alter him in disguise, but with is colours flying, anil under orders; and, as far as I could hear, displayed no tear whatever, but defied the smuggler's threats. At this place I saw the master of the lugger, and some of the crew, which had the action in Robin Hood's Bay, with the revenue culler last winter, and several of the people concerned in the murder of the Fox's crew. One party of sturdy fellows, nine in number, invariably walk about, each armed with a large stick, and always in company; and they publicly boast that next winter they will til out several Urge cutters, which will cany too many guns lor the revenue. Their vessels at present are laid up in the harbour. I am only astonished that our Government do not secure the accused persons, which might easily be done by application to the constituted authorities. You may rely upon the correctness of this statement." At the late Manchester Sessions one of the Jury- not being Satisfied with the guilt of the. prisoner under trial, resisted the opinion of the eleven, and they were all locked up together. ' I hey remained there trout Friday noon, till seven o clock on Sa- turday morning, when the eloquence or perseverance of the one, it appeared, had triumphed over the eleven, by their returning a verdict of Not Guilty on a person charged with a robbery.— This cir- cumstance reminds us of a story often referred to by the late Lord Alvanley. A Juror stood in a similar position of obstinacy with the individual alluded to, and after a fisting contest, obtained his point. In this person, the Judge recognized a man whom he had repeatedly seen upon the same duly at different assizes in the same court, and who had uniformly battled his stomach against those of his fellow jurors, in support of his opinion. His Lord- ship took occasion therefore to ask the man how it happen, d that when lie was on the Jury, there had always been such a delay in returning the Verdict? " Why, please your Lordship," said the Juror, it has always been my misfortune to have to serve with eleven most obstinate fellows." SINGULAR PROPOSAL.— In a company in which the difficulty of fixing the attention even lor a lew moments on on any one subject was discussed, a gentle- man offered to give his horse to any person who could repeat the Lord's Prayer without allowing Ins mind to wander. One of the party, gladly ac cepting the proposal, immediately began—" Our Father, which art in Heaven but mind, I'm to have the hi idle and saddle too!" by which di- gression he of course lost his anticipated reward. COCOA- NUT OIL.— At the suggestion of M Hoblyn, of Sloaue- slreet, a quantity of cocoa- nut oil lias been introduced into this country from the Island of Ceylon. It has been ascertained that this oil may be very advantageously employed as a substitute for spermaceti oil, as it is considerably cheaper, burns with a clear blight flame, and : s free fro in smell or smoke, it will be found useful also in the manufacture of soap, caudles, and the finer articles of perfumery, and is likely to become a source of great revenue in Ceylon, and of im- portance to this country. Soap made with it costs about leu per cent, more than tallow soap. NAVAL BISHOP.— Dr. Wrlliam Lyons, Bishop of Cork, in the latter end of the reign of Queen Elizabeth, was originally a Captain in the Navy who greatly distinguished himself It in several actions against the Spaniards. On being introduced after- . wards at Court, her Majesty told him that h should have the very first vacancy that offered. The See of Cork soon after became vacant, and the honest seaman, who understood the Queen lite- rally, immediately claimed The Hoy a I promise Eliza be h was astonished at the request; but after some delay, finding him a strictly sober, mora man, as well as an intrepid Commander, she gave him the Bishopric, saying, at the same time, " She hoped In- would take as good care of the Church as he had done of the Stale." ' The date of his appoint merit ( 1583) is on record iu the Consistorial Court of Cork. He enjoyed the See above twenty years with great reputation, but never attempted ti preach except once, and that was to pay the las honours to his Royal Mistress. ' This Prelate'' picture, in his Captain's uniform, the left hand wanting a finger, is still to be seen in the Bishop' Palace, at Cork. The new shilldgs are already counterfeited, but on examination the Counterfeits will be found to be more bulky and clumsy than the real coin. On comparing the milling, thai of the counterteit wilt appear much less regular. Where the inside rim is rubbed, the copper is very distinctly seen. ' I be head is rather larger, and there is an evident dif- ference in the chin. The sound will detect the counterfeit immediately, it being like that of a piece of lead. On Saturday, Thomas Baker, a jobbing porter, was taken to Hatton- garden Office, charged with privately stealing a pocket- book, containing 4171. iu Bank of England notes, Out of the; dwelling- house of Mr. Roberts, stock- broker, them residing on Field- terrace, near Battle- bridge. ' The cireum* stances attending this robbery were as follow Mr. Roberts, being removing from Field- terrace to Highgate, had occasion to employ several porters^ ml amongst the number was the prisoner. Mr* Roberts, on getting up that morning, in changing his clothes, put his pocket- book under the head of his bed, his desk and other articles of furniture being tied up ready for removal. In his hurry to expedite the porters he forgot his pocket- book. The porters packed up the bed, bed- clothes, & tc. but the pocket- book and its contents were not missed until the next day.— Who to suspect among the number employed Mr. Roberts did not know* ; however, the prisoner was the person he least sus- pected; he informed the prisoner of his loss, who promised to get him the names and addresses of the other porters employed. Mr. Roberts, in the mean lime, gave information of the robbery at the office, and Reid, jun. was deputed to make the necessary inquiries. Thus the mutter seemed to rest, The officer, in the meanwhile, was on the alert, and through his vigilance, he learned that the prisoner s wife, who was before very poor, had purchased* since this robbery, several articles of furniture, la consequence of which he unexpectedly suiprised the prisoner and took him into custody; and with the greatest difficulty succeeded in searching his person, when he found the identical pocket- book concealed between his shirt and his skin, at the small of his back ; and on examining the peeket book, he found it contained a Bank- note lor U)(> 1. On searching further, he found 301 more in notes, concealed in the seat of Ins lagged small- clothes. He proceeded further in bis Search, and in the crown of his old hat, which was slutted with paper and rags, he found 451. more, being within 421. of the sum stolen, The officer then took the wile into custody, and, on enquiry, he found she had bought til. of goods, and on searching he recovered the remainder to within H. 10s. including the money paid for the goods. Part of the money contained in the book was a 1( 101. Bank- note, When the prisoner must have changed. The prisoner was committed for further examination, in order to afford the officer an opportunity to trace where the 1001. Bank- note was changed, or if it was re- turned to the Bank. At York Assizes, Robert Wid, of Troutsdale, in the North hiding, farmer, was indicted tor having, on the Kith of June, between the hours of eight and nine in the evening, felloniously unven away and stolen fourteen sheep and two lambs ( the properly of T. Sawdon, ot the township of Hawsker- cum- Stainacre, in the palish of Whitby) from the open moor or ground where they usually grazed.— The singularity of this case was, thai the prisoner, at the time of the theft, was. a respectable farmer, fanning laud to the extent of 500 acres, and paying rent to the amount ot 3101. year; that he'had previously maintained a good character for honesty, among his neighbours; that it did not appear lie had formed any premeditated design to column the theft till accident threw the objects of ii into his way; and that the attempt was made iucii< uui- slauces where there could be little or no probabi- lity of success.—' The prosecutor deposed, that having received information that a stranger was driving away his sheep from the common, lie took his man and two horses to go in pursuit of the thicf. Witness overtook him about five miles trom lite common, driving the sheep towards his own home. Witness said to him, on coming up, " Halloo, friend, you are rather latish in driving sheep to- night ;" asking Him, at the same time, where he got them. Prisoner said, he had bought thein from a man over the moor. Witness informed him they were his sheep; upon which the other replied, he might have them then. Witness said he must not only have the sheep, but the driver too, seizing hill! by the collar. When secured, prisoner said it was a bad job, ottered back the sheep, and wished to make the matter up. The prosecutor and his servant carried the prisoner to a farmer's house in the neighbourhood, where they kept hint till five o'clock next morning. During the time he was there he offered again to make up the matter, expressed great sorrow lor the offence, said it was the first i rime of the kind lie had ever been guilty of, that he had no need of the sheep, that he had more of his own than he had meat for, and that he thought the devil had entered into him, for, seeing the sheep run.. ing backwards and forwards along the road side, he could not pass them by without attempting to steal them. Other witnesses confirmed this account, and deposed to the nature of the conversations before the pri- soner was taken before the Magistrates.—> evt ral witnesses gave the prisoner a good character tor honesty and sobriety.— Guilty. ANECDOTE.— A young woman meeting the leorned Dr. Pomposo, in the square of a certain town, asked him where she might find a shop- keeper whom she wanted. ' The Doctor gave the following direction : Move your pedestrian digits along The diagonal of this rectangle, in a line per- pendicular to the earth's equator, till you arrive at The junction of the two sides. Diverge then to the left, at right angles ; perge for about Fifty paces in that quadrangle, and you will have ocular de- monstration of him, standing in an orifice, made in an edifice, for the purpose of illumination. A BENEVOLENT ECONOMIST.— A letter from Berg, in Germany, says — " Mr. B. a man of a very humane disposition, lived for a time in the strictest retirement, so that people thought his head was . affected; but last winter, when the distresses of the inhabitants of this place was at the highest pitch, he called his book- keeper, and bade him calculate how much lie had saved by his retired way of life, and then immediately ordered 200,000lbs. of'potatoes to be purchased with his savings, and distributed gratis to those who were in need of such assistance."
