Tlte French Papers of Saturday arrived on Tuesday ; and Wednesday morning were receiv- ed those » f Sunday. The King- and the Royal Family continue to pay the most marked atten- tion to the family ofthe Duke of Orleans. Till very recently, the Duke seemed to be an object of suspicion and jealousy, and kept completely aloof from the Court of the Thuilleries. Now there appears a studied- design of impressing Upon lite people of France ail idea that he stands well with all the members ol the feigning branch of the House of Bourbon.— Charnay, who duped several people about Bourg and Macon, in the pretended character of the Ex- Emperor has been sentenced to five year's im- irisonment, a tine of 50 f., live years surveilance, pr and the deprivation of his civil rights for vears. The trials of tha pelsons concerned in ihe disturbances which took place, some months ago at Savigny, and other communes iu the en- virons of Lyons, are going on before the Prevo- tal Courts of that city. The Duke of Feltre has, at length, been dri- ven out of office, by the complete ascendant, which the Duke of Richlieu and M. Laine are said to have acquired in the French Cabinet. In the official announcement of St. Cyr, as his successor in the War Department, the Duke of Feltre is said to have resigned, by way of soften- ing his disgrace. Count Mole succeeds St. Cyr as Minister of Marine. Orders have been issued for the free exportation of fire arms from France for commercial purposes. There can be no difficulty in conjecturing the ultimate de- stination of the arms so exported. The French merchants and gun- manufacturers have no doubt remonstrated with their Government on the sub- ject ofthe monopoly which those of this coun- try and the United States have so long had ofthe supply of arms to the revolted Spanish Colonies and very reasonably wish to participate in the • advantages of this branch of traffic.— The Paris Papers continue lo be filled with addresses to the Public on the subject of the elections for the Chamber of Deputies. Though the writers are attached to different parties, they appear to unite in recommending strongly to the suffrages of the electors, in general terms, those only who are attached to legitimacy and the charter, a qualification in which, of course, those who are now most hostile to each other affect to coincide. From private letters it appears, that in the list of elegibles for Paris, circulated by the party called the Ultra Liberals, are inserted the names of M. Lafayette, M. Manuel, and Benjamin Constant. AMERICAN PAPERS. [ From the New York Commercial Advertiser of Aug. 20.] Arrived last evening the schooner Hermit, from St. Mary's; sailed Aug. 7. The da\ before the Hermit sailed, a report was circulat- ing at St. Mary's, that a small Patriot privateer had been captured iu St. John's River by a party of Spaniards, and her crew, consisting of about 18 men, nearly all put to death. She was said to be the small clinker- built schooner which was lately picked up in this river by the revenue cutter Gallatin, Captain Ross. [ From the Boston Commercial Advertiser of Aug. 18.] The brig. Sally, Barker, from St. Salvador, arrived here last night; on the 10th of July was chased G hours by 2 schooners, a brig in company was fired at 3 times by one of lliem, under Spanish colours, brought to, and ordered on board; after examining her papers was permitted to proceed, stating that she was hound a different course; said he fired at the Sally. Barker, because he took her to be a Spanish brig, prize to a schooner he had chased early in tiie morning, Capt. Defrees could not find out where the vessels were from, or their names. The schooner which brought the Sally brig to had 12 guns and a long 2- llb. brass piece on a pivot, and full of men. It is said llnit some young Wirtemberg Emigrants in the United States have sent home for wives, and girls from 12 to 18 years of age have been, engaged, and are now on their way to be married to their countrymen. Montreal, Aug. 9 .— Died at Hayti, Prince John, of Hayti Grand Admiral of the Kingdom, aged 31. — His remains were entombed, and sent to St. Lucie ( the place of his birth) to be inter- red with military honours. He was a man of talents and probity ; and iu his transactions with America, as High Admiral, discharged his duty with great urbanity, rectitude, and polite- ness. He was a distant relative to Christophe. The New York Gazette of August 11, contains the following:—" We have given currency to two articles which lately originated in the Even- ing Post, one about a beautiful Lady having had her nose bitten off by her husband; and the other, about this man having taken his own life. The facts are, that the Lady had her nose bitten, but not off. The man lives, and is at large 1 DEATH OF SIR JOHN M'MAHON. It is with great regret we stale the death of th- Rt. Hon. J M'Mahon, at Bath, on Saturday last He had been in a very precarious state of healti for some time, and gone to Bath to endeavour t< recruit his strength— from tin nee he hoped soon to be able to proceed to the milder climate ol Devonshire. That hope, alas, was not to, he realized '. — From ihe moment he arrived at Bath, he grew weaker and weaker, and died, as we would all wish to die, quietly and tranquilly, sinking into the arms of death as into sleep. Few men were fitter to meet that awful change than the man whose death we ; ire now recording. He was a Gentleman of most kind and courteous manners—- steady and constant in his friend- ships ( that illustrious Personage whom he served with such zeal, fidelity, and affection, will be the first to attest the justice of this tribute I) very anxious to do good, and doing it always without ostentation or parade. That he had many friends, we can assert— that he had one enemy, we have never heard. With the best qualities of the heart, we may add that he had a very cultivated understanding and a very sound judgment—" the clearest head with ihe sincerest heart."— The Prince Regent received the account of his death, as those who the warmth of his affections would expect, with feelings and expressions ol the deepest sorrow. Sir John M'Mahon is reported to have died Worth 70,000/. Ihe greater part of which he has bequeathed to his brother the Master of the Rolls in Ireland. The Baronetcy devolves on his brother in India. An Assembly of the States of Saxony and Lusatia is summoned for Ihe 19th of next month. The Lutherans and Calvinists ot the duchy of Berg held their first Provincial Synod, under the new denomination of Evangelical Christians, on the 27th ult at Gumbersbach. The French Protestants, it is said, are dissatis- fied with those passages of the Concordat be tween the Pope and Louis XVIII. which allude to them; and it is supposed, that an application will he made to the two Chambers to give them such an interpretation as. shall guarantee to them the permanent exercise of their civil and religious rights, in terms as precise and ample as they are granted by the Constitutional Charter. Intelligence has been received at Lloyd's, that the Congress insurgent schooner ptivateer of 10 guns aijd 195 men, was spoken on the 30th ultimo, about five leagues from Flores, when the Captain reported that he had taken eight Spa- nish vessels and sent the. m to. different ports-; and that he ' was then on a Cruize among the Western islands. Some curiosity has been exprt ssed to know why the King of Prussia assumed the name of Count Ruppin, during his travels. Ruppin is a town in the middle Mark of Brandenburgh.— But, ill tbe beginning of the Kith century, llie fief having become vacant by the death of Wichmann, Count of Lindau, Joachim I., Elector of Brandenburgh, annexed the fief to the Mark. An Erfurt Paper states, that in a Memorial presented to the German Diet, the following proposal* were made:—' That none of the German j States shall have a more imperfect Constitution than another— that therefore the Diet of the Confederation, shall draw up a plan for one fun- damental Constitution for all ihe German States — that in respect to the Civil and Criminal Le- gislation, uniformity be introduced, and this one system of judicial proceeding prevail in Ger- many— that this proceeding be public, as this nlone can place the people of Germany on a level with neighbouring nations. A survev is now making at the instance of the Horticultural Society in Holland, Flanders, and the North of France. We rejoice to find such an undertaking is in progress; and under its present auspices we expect considerable advan- tages to this country will be the result. Our apple orchards have been long acknowledged to reqitire either remedies to cure their disease, or recruits to renovate their stocks. A wolf has been lately talked of that makes cruel war upon the dogs in the south- east part of the canton of St. Mihiel. Letters from Com- mercy state, that a female wolf as voracious, but perhaps more daring, will extirpate the dogs in the environs of Dun, if she continues her sangui- nary exploits. Within one month she has de- stroyed 40 dogs, and particularly that ofa watch- man at Fontaine, which was sleeping on its mas- ter's bag, at a short distance from him. She ill so had the audacity to seize the dog of a shep- herd almost between the master's legs. Of six cubs that she had with her, five have been al- ready killed by a Notary of Dun, and it is hoped that ' the ferocious animal herself will soon fall by the numerous parties who pursue her. Letters from Halifax ( Nova Scotia) received on Tuesday, mention a circumstance of conside- rable importance to our countrymen who emigrate to America. A Committee was formed for the register of every person arriving, his age, quali- fications, & c.; and it was requested that every person in the colony should transmit what ser- vants, agriculturists, & c. he wanted, that the emigrants might he provided for on their landing; a list was also kept of the grounds which might be occupied for a length of time for the clearing and for commencing the cultivation ; very bene- ficial results were expected from these arrange- ments: il was expected to be followed immedi- ately in Canada and I he adjacent provinces. One ofthe letters says, " The summer has been fa- vourable through the whole of this and the neigh- bouring provinces, and we look forward to more than au average harvest. In the United States the crops are unusually abundant. It is most fortunate for the shoals of emigrants who have poured into the States and British America that it is so. Had it been such a summer as the last, they must have perished in the winter, or suffer- ed as the Newfoundland people did last year. Every thing is, however, dreadfully dear here. In May, a ship arrived from Aberdeen, with hay, which sold for 13/. a ton; at which time Nova Scotia oats, which are, compared in weight to English, as two to three, wereOs. and lis. 5d. the bushel. The undivided attention ofthe inhabitants of Newfoundland has been for some time fixed on a question of importance, which was agitated in Parliament last Session — the legitimacy ofthe marriages solemnized in that Colony. The Me- thodist Ministers had taken upon themselves to solemnize marriages, stating that the Marriage Act of England did not extend to that Colony, and that it was legal not only for them to so- lemnize marriages, but even the Episcopal Mi- misters without licence, or Laymen, had the same privilege. In consequence of this, applications were made direct to theGovernment of England ; the event has been ti e following official commu- nication, which is taken from a Halifax Paper. The fair of Newfoundland and the adjacent Set- tlements, are stated in the private letters to be in a precarious situation. Provincial Secretary Office, Halifax, August in', 1817. The following copy ot a letter from Earl Bathurst to his Excellency tiie Lieutenant- Go- vernor, is published by authority: — " Downing- street, May SI, 1817. " MY Lonii - Herewith I have the honour of inclosing to your Lordship an order of his Royal Highness the Prince Regent in Council, dated the 20th ult. disallow- ing an Art passed by the Legislature ofthe Province of Nova Scotia in 1816, entitled,' An Act. to explain the Acts concerning Marriage and Divorce, passed in the 32d year of his late Majesty's reign, and the first year of his present Majesty's reign.' " I have the honour to be, & c* BATHURST. " To Lieut.- General the Earl of Dalhousie." It having been stated, some time since, that a British General Officer had been arrested in France at the suite of a French Hotel- Keeper, late of Leicester square, for a debt contracted in this Country.— We are happy now to an- nounce, that the case has been ably defended in the Court of Rouen,~ and the decision has been given against Ihe Frenchman, who has been condemned to pay all the costs and expenees besides losing his debt. Tiie General had been confined for several months in prison with the common felons of Ihe district although bail had been offered of double the amount ofthe debt and costs, but refused. Statuary— The Duke of Devonshire, prior to having England, ordered several Vases, of classic form, to he- executed in the finest Amethystine Fluor of Derbyshire, with a view of assisting the manufacture, then declining, from the influx of Italian alabaster. These beautiful vases have so pleased the highest circles of St. Peters- burgh, surpassing any productions of the Em- peror's mines of Siberia, that, several orders have been received from this his Grace's in- troduction. Baron Wood gave a delicate, but severe re- buke to the Gentlemen of the Bar, at the Lan- caster Assizes, when he observed, that if actions for Defamation against Counsel were to be en- couraged, the Court " during one Assize could, do nothing but try actions brought for words used by . Counsel at the former Assize." This was a tolerably broad hint that his Lordship thought Ihe Gentlemen of the Bar somewhat too free in Speech. Repartee.— The son of a Nobleman who has seen much service on the Continent was accosted on Wednesday by a friend in Bond- street, who facetiously observed, " as this was the piping time of peace, his whiskers might be put upon a peace establishment 1" " To that I have no objection," was the answer ; but,! desire at the same lime , that your tongue may be put on the civil list. A modern Irish Gentleman having made a purchase of Gibbon's Rome, 12 volumes, in J boards, wefit to a bookseller's shop to get it most elegantly bound. " Pi. ay, Sir," inquired the bookseller, " what binding would you like best? iWouid you like to have it bound in Russia?" " In Russia," replied the man of fashion, " Oh, no, no, that is too far off ? I'd rather have it bound in Bond- street, where I think it can be equally well done." Legal Anecdote.— My Lord Chancellor Els- merr, says Sir Francis Bacon, when he read a petition which he disliked, would say, " What, you would have my hand to this now !" And the party of course, answering " Yes," he would furl her say—" Well, so you shall; nay, you shall have both my hands to it!" when with both his hands he tore the obnoxious petition into pieces. Turkish Logic.— Dr. Clarke says, the mo- dern laws of Cos do not reward female chastity, but they discountenance, in a very singular manner, any cruelty in females towards their admirers. Au instance occurred while our traveller was in the island, in which the fatal termination ofa love affair occasioned a trial for what Ihe Mohammedan lawyers describe as " homicide by an intermediate cause" The case was as follows:—" A young man, desper- ately in love wilh a girl of Stanchio, eagerly sought to marry her; but his proposals were rejected. In consequence he destroyed himself by poison. The Turkish police arrested the father of the obdurate fair, and tried him for cap- able homicide. " If the accused," argued they, with becoming gravity, " had not had a daugh- ter, the deceased would not have fallen in love, consequently he would not have been disap- pointed, consequently he would not have swallowed poison, consequently he would not have died :— but he ( the accused) had a daugh- ter, and the deceased had fallen in love," etc. Upon all these counts, he w;; s called upon to pay the price of Ihe young man's life; and this, beins fixed at the sum of 80 piastres, was ac- cordingly exacted." A singular circumstance occurred on Ihe Gol- den, Farmer- hill, in Hants on Sunday. A party from Chertsey went on a pleasurable excursion to view the hops at Farnham, and in going up, the horse in the first chaise made a sudden slop, and shook his head, as if jibbing at the hill. Mr. Griffin, of the coffee- house, Chertsey, who was in the next chaise, whipped by the first horse, and he jibbed also, swarms of bees having suddenly put themselves in motion, and filled she horse's head and ears, while others settled upon those in the chaisecart. Griffin's horse jibbed in earnest, turned about, and gallopped down the hill, but, fortunately, without accident. A cart loaded with bee- hives just before the chaise, had dropped three or four of the hives, and the tenants took up fresh quarters. On Saturday last, about one o'clock, as two Gentlemen were walking between Granton and Carolina Park, they perceived a boy on a rock, surrounded by the tide, which was rising rapidly, The poor boy seeing his danger, called loudly for help, and the Gentlemen desired some masons who weVe working near the spot to go to Granton for a horse. Luckily there was a man not far off with a horse and cart, and to him they applied, but the fellow had the inhumanity to refuse. It was not, however, a time for ceremony; the horse was therefore taken from the cart without ihe man's leave, and one of the masons having mounted it, rescued the boy from his perilous situation. By a curious coincidence, he proved to belong to the very man who had refused to give his horse for the purpose of getting him out. Such was the rapidity of the tide that one ofthe Gentlemen, who had bean proceeding towards the rock while the masons were in search of a horse, was also surrounded by the sea, and did not get out without some 1 difficulty .--^ Edinburgh Courant, Sept. 15. MURDER AND ROBBERY. In the middle of last December, a respectable far- mer named Howard, whose age on the day of his death was 90, was murder- d in his own house, within three miles of Uxbridge. The situation of the house is pecu- liarly solitary, being surrounded with trees and fronted Dy a large lake, where now and then a fishing- boat was to be seen. The family, which were almost the only inhabitants within a very extensive circuit, consisted ' f'the venerable farmer, his grandson, and an aged fe- male servant. The fondness of Mr. Howard for his grandson, Bond, received no interruption from the mo- ment of the birth of the lalter, w ho was taught to look upon the property of his grandfather as his inheritance. The old man had stock, rn the Bank of England, and took much pleasure in thejonruey to London to receive his dividends, Which amounted to £ 30. quarterly. A few days before the murder, he had been upon one. of those journies, and on his return, being weary, he re- tired to rest. He never rose again. Upon the return of Bond from some occupation at (> o'clock in the even- ing, he found his grandfather dead. Near him lay a large crab- stick, upon which was a quantity of blood. The body was dreadfully disfigured, and the front of the head was not distinguishable from the back. The old housekeeper was lying senseless on the ground. Bond immediately ran to the labourers employed in the adjacent meadows, and described the murder that had taken place, exhibiting all those symptoms so natural to a relative of the deceased. They all repaired to the hotiseof Mr. Howard. They examined the apartments, but no violence had been done to any part. It seemed to have been the act of some miscreant, who either was influenced solely by revenge, or so horror- struck at the deed which he found necessary to perform before his object of* plunder could be accomplished, as to fly from bis first intention. Tliere, was, however, one remark able circumstance which excited suspicion against the grandson. The old man was in tho habit of carrying the key of his bureau in the left pocket of his waistcoat. The housekeeper was acquainted with his ways, and j that there were private drawers in the bureau which could he know n to no stranger. The old gentleman had received his £ 30, and he must have deposited it in one of those secret drawers. If the nature of the murderer was revenge, the money must be in the drawer, for it was locked. The suggestion was attended to; the bu- reau was broken open, but no money was to be found, every eye was fixed upon the. grandson, who did not show the slightest sign of confusion. On the contrary, he. agreed in the general opinion, that the robber must be the murderer, and that lie could have been no stranger. He invited investigation, for the sake of his own character and for the blood of his grandfather; he called upon a strict inquiry into the dreadful case. He was taken before a Magistrate. The housekeeper was called on to tell what she knew. She knew nothing, but that somebody came behind her in the kitchen, and struck her so violent a blow- that she fell senseless on the ground, and that the fright had never left her since. Some time before this she had been waiting upon her master, who was then in health; upon recovering she saw him a corpse. The person who struck her spoke, but was not seen bv her. A report previously existed that the old man had a long time ago made a will, in which he bequeathed all he was worth in the world to his grandson, but that some circumstances had recently left the house on Sunday evetiing Dec. lst. about six o'clock. The prisoner had gone out befoie to visit a Mr. Wyman, who lived at about a hundred yards dis- tance. Witness went out aloue, and left everything in safety. His master and the housekeeper werositting at ( lie fire, in a room on the ground floor. He left the door closed upon a latch. A flu* I was fixed above, which any stranger might see on entering, if lie looked upwards towards the ceiling.— He saw it insome man's hand when he returned, deeply marked wiili bh. od He met a stranger in his way near a small bridge, in such a situation as that he must have been proceeding to or coming from his master's house ; he addressed tlim, conceiving that he had missed his way, but the stranger passed on withoutan v reply. Witness then went to a public- house, where he temaiced till the prisoner came in, and exclaimed " For G — d's sake come, for somebody has almost killed the old man and Sarah."— lie went immediately to the house, accompanied by the prisoner and several other persons. The old peo- ple were, found sitting iu their chairs, unable to speak, and both very bloody. A great deal of blood lay on the floor. The prisoner got some brandy and rubbed the old. Gentleman's forehead; when the latter seemed to revive, and said, " Don't, John, it is so cold." The prisoner desisted accordingly, the deceased went to bed, and witness never heard him speak intelligibly afterwards. Cross- examined by Mr. Bolland.— The stranger whom he had met on his way to the public- house nlnst have been going to or coming from his master's house. There was a Splash way in the lane throngh which bo advanced, and the stranger passed through it instead ofgoing over the hedge, which would have brought him close to the witness. 1 he prisoner sat up all that night with the old gentleman, aud seemed much con- cerned aud very attentive to him. Bond was Always active in the pursuit of persons suspected of baling committed the. robbery. William Mercer confirmed several parts ofthe last witness's testimony. With regard to the appearance ofthe old man on his entrance, after hearing of what had happened, his eyes were very much swelled, and Iris head lunch bruised and very bloody. On his cross- examination he stated, that the old people sat i; i chairs facing each Other, and the deceased looking towards the door, so that he must haye seen who entered the room and struck the housekeeper. John Curtis, a surgeon, deposed, that when he saw the deceased there were not the slightest hopes of bis recovery. He declared this as soon as he examined him, in the hearing of the whole, company. Some of the - wounds appeared to have been inflicted by a flail, and others bv a window- bar. He was called iu about seven o'clock iu the evening. Joseph Allen said, he was a churchwarden ofthe pa- rish of Hillingdon, and went to search the house ofthe deceased, on the day in question. The prisoner asked him to look at the bureau. He examined it accordingly, It had been broken open, and the padlock aud kev w ere found intermixed with the papers in it. He search- ed the well and found nothing in it; but there was a seciet drawer which he did not observe, nor had any subsequent opportunity of discovering, till the month of August last, after the bureau had beeusold. Here Mr. Baron Graham, after communicating with his brother Judges, addressed the Jury, and remarked, that lie understood tliere was no additional evidence such as would go to trace two particular bank notes, occurred which rendered it probable that an alteration was meditated in the disposal of the property. It is said that the grandson showed mucji impatience upon . . , hearing this suspicion, and an inference unfavourable formerly the property of William Howard, to the pos- was then drawn from his conduct at the idea of suffer- session of the prisoner. As it was impossible to convict r ingany disappointment. The Magistrate discharged him; but those, who were interested believed the ease to be one ofthe vilest in the catalogue of murders. It was a singular fact, that the old man's will was after- wards found open. Upon being read, the inheritance Was found to devolve upon his grandson, who was put in possession immediately after his discharge. Bond returned tfi the house, buried his grandfather, and lived in the same solitary place. Months rolled on, and still no tidings of Hie murderer. The agitation of Oxbridge began to subside, when a few days ago it was revived with the greatest violence. A Gentleman sent to tbe Bank two notes, one for £' 20. and another for <£ 10. The Bank were not idle upon hearing' of the mnrdef. The numbers of the notes which were paid to Mr. Howard when he went to receive hisdividend had been taken, and the necessary order for . stopping them is- sued. Those very notes for 20/. and 10/. were the notes which had been taken out of Mr. Howard's bureau. The Directors of the Bank, with all that alacrity so laudable upon the occasion, traced the notes through about 30 hands, and at last came within three miles of Uxbridge, and found them in the hands of Bond. The grandson was immediately conveyed to town. By the advice of an experienced barrister, the bill for the" rob- bery was on Monday presented to the Grand Jury at Clerkenwell. After the examination of 35 witnesses, it was found a true bill. OLD BAILEY, SEPT. 17. This morning the Sessions at the Old Bailev com- menced before Mr. Baron Graham, Mr. Justice Hol- royd, Mr. Justice Burroughs, the Recorder, and the Lord Mayor. At ten o'clock the Judges took their scats on the Bench, and proceeded with the case of John Bond, who was indicted for stealing in the dwelling- house of W il- liam, Howard, since deceased, two bank notes, one of the value of' 201. and the other of the value of lof. the property ofthe said Wm. Howard. Mr. Arabin opened the indictment, and Mr. Alley stated the case to the Jury, as above ; and after observ- ing that the notes had been taken out of a bureau, the key of which had been' kept in the breeches pocket of the old man, of which the prisoner was perfectly aware, he informed the Jury that the prisoner was co- executor under hisgrandfather's will, and if he had taken the notes after the decease of his grandfather, it might be a fraud, but could nut be a felony. The following Witnesses were then called :— Sarah Randall stated, that she had been housekeeper in the deceased's family for forty years. Thcf'amily then consisted of herself, the deceased, the prisoner, and a man named Ayres. In the evening ofthclst of Decem- ber Ayres went out to milk the cows; while lip was out the witness and the old Gentleman were sitting below stairs; the witness was sitting with one of her sides to- wards the door, so that she could not see any one enter ; Ihe old mart sat nearly opposite to her, facing the door; she lit a candle for the old Gentleman to light his pipe; she heard the doer open while they were so sitting to- gether, and supposing it was Ayres she believed she said," is it you, Tom?" No sooner had she spoken, or meant to speak, than she received a blow on her head, Which stunned her. On her coming to again, she heard the old man groan. She had not the means of knowing from whom she received the blow. On her coining to, the prisoner was in the room withassistance, and spoke tobcr. The prisoner was in the habit of receiving mo- ney and dividends for his grandfather, which he always paid to the old gentleman faithfully. The old gentleman used lo roll his notes up very curiously when lie receiv- ed them, and put them into a private drawer in a bu- reau, the key of which he used to keep in his left hand . breeches pocket. He was always very regular in keep ing the key in that way, Cross- examined by Mr. Holland.— Witness had lived 40 years with Mr. Howard. The prisoner lived in the family partly in the capacity ofa servant, and was the son of her master's daughter. She had known him from his birth. Mr Howard had been extremely good to him, and the prisoners conduct always appeared re- spectful and attentive. The prisonermanaged alltheold gentleman's money concerns. She remembered Air. Howard say ing on one occasion to the prisoner, that he had provided for him in his w ill, and It ft him ^ 209, which was afterwards altered to £ i » 0 stock. The prisoner was careful, iyuh never appeared to want money. The old Gentleman offered iiim his wages on Michaelmas day, and the prisoner declined receiving them. In answer to a question from Mr. Baron Graham, the witness said, she heard the old gentleman utter a deep groan, and that be vvasncver sensible afterwards. Bond took a walk after dinner as was bis custom on the day in question, and had not returned before the blows were indicted by some pe- rson who had entered the house. The conversation respecting the money be- queathed to the prisoner had taken place a few days before. Thomas Ayres, the next witness, stated, that he bad • lived as one of the servants with the deceased, He possible t.- the prisoner on the evidence already received, evidence which affixed on ) iim not only the imputation now in question, which was extremely serious, but that also of murdering his relative and benefactor, lie felt it his duty to Stale, that the mere possession of the notes described in the indictment, although it might amount to proof of a fraud on theresidnaiy legatees of the deceased, was not evidence which oonld make out the charge stated in the indictment. He considered, therefore, thai it would be a waste of their valuable time to enter into any f ur- ther details, and had the satisfaction to understand that his brother Judges concurred in his opinion. Verdict— Not Guilty. The prisoner appeared to be about 40 ; tall, and very stout, with a dark complexion, but of an open rustic countenance; he was dressed in a smock- frock, with a rough great coat over it. His manner was perfectly composed, nor was there any change of look or gesture when he heard his acquittal." He took up his hat, and walked away from, the bar with the air ofa niau who is about his usual business. . Guildhall.— Mary Smith, a wretched old woman, apparently 70, was charged with robbing a gentleman, named Howe, or House, of a valuable watch, chain, and seals At a late hour on Friday night, last, the com- plainant was passing through Shoe- lane, towards his own house, and was embraced by somebody behind. He found that as soon as the amis ofthe person were drawn around him, he was robbed of his watch. He turned round and saw an old woman running along vvilli great velocity. He pursued, and got hold of her shawl and bonnet; but she slipped away, leaving them in the hands of the complainant as a recompenee for what he had lost. A watchman, who was informed ofthe rob- bery, aud the remarkable speed of the thief, waited in an obscure part ofthe lane ; and about an hour after, ob- served a female with all the symptoms of age, except the decrepitude, stealing along, and bending, as if in search of something she had dropped. He had disposed Ihe shawl aud bonnet in such a manner as to detain the person who should look for them, until he could prevent the possibility of a retreat. The prisoner grasped them as if they were old acquaintances, and put them on. The watchman then pounced upon her, and brought her to the watch- house, where he found upon her per- son the complainant's watch.— Committed. Attempted Suicide.— Tuesday last as a Gentleman on horseback was passing along the Paddington- road, he observed a middle- aged man going along Harper's fields in the direction of the Canal. The singularity of Ilis manner attracted the Gentleman's attention ; his steps were sometimes hurried, at others slow, and he threw his hands about with an air of distraction. He watch- ed- liim until he came to the edge of the Canal, when he suddenly turned round and threw himself in; the Gen- tleman lost no time in going to his assistance, and with great trouble got him out and laid him on the bank un- til he received assistance; when the unfortunate man was conveyed to the nearest residence.— The account he gave of himself was, that he was an upholsterer in Mary- la- bonne, and that domestic embarrassments had led him to make the rash attempt. J. Thomson, GO years of age, a few days since, at- tempted to discount or pledge a forged bill for » £ 1C. odd, with a merchant in Ayr, but was caught in the at- tempt, and incarcerated. The morning after, with the apparent intention of putting a period to his existence,, he cut his arm with a razor, in a desperate manner be- low the elbow. He bled copiously, but as the wound was made in a part nol very vital, and the affair was dis- covered early, his deadly intention was defeated. Melancholy Catastrophe.— We have tbe painful duty to announce the following lamented intelligence :— Mr. Charles Joseph Hellicar, Demi of Magdalen College, Oxford, eldest son of Mr. Joseph Hellicar, of this City, and Mr. George Gresley Whitchurch, Student of Baliol College, youngest son of the late Mr. S. Whitchurch,, during the present vacation were at Guernsey, and wishing to visit Fiance, sailed on the'afternoon of the 12th August for Cherburgh. Some few hours after- wards the wind changed, and became violent, and it is ' believed the fury of tiie gale, met their vessel whilst passing the Race of Alderney, and that they there pe- rished. No account of the vessel having reached any French port, and more than a month having elapsed without intelligence to any of the parties connected with the sufferers either in Guernsey or England, the melan- choly inference is too obvious.— Mr. Hellicar was in his 22d year; at a very early age he bad received the highest classical honours of the University, and had lately taken his degree of Master of Arts: his friend ( a year younger) felt emulous of his example, and gave marks of the highest promise— but they are no more. United, whilst living, ill friendship and study, they were not divided in death — they have sunk in one common grave, leaving their afflicted friends to mingle with their sorrow the consoling recollection of their worth.— It has thus pleased the Almighty, by a calamity most awful and affecting; to cut off these two much- beloved and valuable young men ; but" His way is in the sea. His path in the great Waters, and His footsteps are, not known,"— ( Bristol Journal, Sept. 13. X LONDON, FRIDAY,. SEPTEMBER 10, 1817 The Paris Papers of Monday arrived on Thurs- day. The following ace extracts :- Paris, Sept. 15.— Yesterday, after Mass, the King received the Ambassadors, Ministers, Mar- shals, &- C. The new Ministers of War and Ma- rine were present. During the storm on Friday, the lightning struck the hospital St. Antoine : it penetrated the sick ward, but without injuring any person. The lightning also struck three times at Arcueil: the first time, a room full of children, the se- cond, iu a court, and the third, in a field; no damage was done. Tire intelligence from the Tyrol is afflicting. After a southerly w ind, which lasted three days, the Inn and the Syll rose on a sudden higher than in 1769. The treats have carried away trees, bridges, and buildings. The amount of the National Guards of Paris was on the Ist inst. 30,111 effective men, 0,710 lion effective, and 208 Cavaliers, mounted and equipped. Total 37,005. During the last month there sailed from Havre 10 5 merchant vessels, viz. 81 French, 15 Ame- rican, 17 English, 3 Belgian, 5 Danish, 4 Dutch, 1 Norwegian, 3 Russian, and - 1 Swedish. On the 7th inst. an affray took place at Bour- deaux amongst several individuals assembled at a public- house. The guards came to quell the disorder, but were assailed by stones and sticks, and were under the necessity of using their arms. Four shots were fired, by which some of the rioters we're slightly wounded. The old Officer of the French army, General Furstembers, has died at Versailles, at the age of 99 years. The King of Prussia is expected at Berlin on th? 25th instant. They write from Lausanne, that the Rhine has devastated the country from Ragatz to the Lake of Constance. This river in the uight between the 27th and 28th ult. rose above all the em- bankments, and after having broken down the greater part of them, it precipitated itself into the plains,' and destroyed tire finest harvest. Haag and Salez, in Werdenberg, Diepoltsan, Schuietter, and Wionau, in the Rhinthal, are under w ater. The vallics to Bernang present to the view an immense Lake; boats are plying in places where water had never before been seen. At Trubbach the Rhine has innundated the salt warehouses. Oberied was the only place where the population, who assembled at the sound of the tocsin, were enabled to rest the torrent. In several places the water has quitted the old bed of the River, which is dry and covered with sand. A Mail arrived on Thursday from Flanders. The Papers by this conveyance state, that the Army of Occupation is not likely to experience the diminution of another fifth until next spring. Bv this delay ail opportunity will be afforded of ascertaining the temper of the new Chamber of Deputies, and the effect of their proceedings upon the dispositions and feelings of the people. Iu the mean time the allied Army will be kept up at an effective establishment of 120,000 men. It is again stated, that the Allies have brought for- ward claims of indemnities upon France, to the amount of 1800,000,000 f. or about 7- 1,000,000/. sterling. , NEW POLICE REPORT. The Second Report of the Police Committee of the House of Commons has been printed. The following is an extract from the. examination of J. Townshend, who has been 34 years a Bow- street Officer:—" I have, with every attention that man could bestow, watched the conduct of various persons who have given evidence against their fellow- creatures for life and death, not only at the Old Bailey, but on the Circuits; I consider Of- ficers as dangerous creatures, who have it - frequently in their power ( no question about it) to turn the scale, when the beam is level, to the other side ; he swears against the wretched man at the bar; aud why? be- cause that thing— Nature says, profit— is in the scale ; and melancholy to relate, but I cannot help being per- fectly satisfied, that has been the means of convicting many and many a man. I have always been of opinion, that an Officer is a dangerous subject to the commu- nity." Penitentiary houses receive the most unquali- fied approbation of tiie Committee, and they strongly recommend the erection of one for juvenile delinquents, who are now encouraged in their vicious practices by being shut up in the same prison with experienced and hardened offenders. It is very consolatory to observe the good effects which have been produced at the House of Refuge for the Destitute, the Philanthropic Institu- tion, the Magdalen Hospital, and flic London Female Penitentiary; all supported by private benevolence; and at the General Penitentiary at Milbank, tbe Chap- lain of which says, " that the general conduct of the pri- soners during their confinement has been most satis- factory; that the repentance and amendment of many of them is visible; and that there is every reason to pre- sume that oil their leaving the prison they will become honest and industrious members of society." This is a most gratifying statement, and is assuredly very much in favour oi' the promotion of similar establishments. County of Kent . Insurance principal Office Maidstone, ->-> nd Sept. 1817.

THOMAS WICKHAM, Secretary. The Murders at Pendleton.— Much diversity of opinion exists respecting [ lie innocence of Holden and the three Ashcrofts. By letters and arrivals from Manchester we are informtd that about nine other persons have been taken up there and at other places, charged with being concerned in the above murder and robbery; and that part ofthe stolen property has been found in the possession of some of them. It is said that the clergy- men, Messrs. Rowley, Morley. and Housman, are much distressed, and that they believe them innocent. On the day previous to the execution, they requested to be alone in the Chapel of the Castle, which was pretended to be acceded to, but the gaoler overheard them there request each other to confess if they knew any thing of the murder; they severally denied it, and prayed to God to make manifest their innocence at a future day. In a case of this kind ought not the Sheriff to have power to respite the execution until the matteris more fully investigated by the Secretary of State and the Privy Council?— Lancaster Gazette.

R. WHITE, Clerk to the said Trustees. Goudhurst, 5th Septembn, 1817. Letters received 011 Friday morning from Barbadoes state, that Porto Rico is so completely blockaded with Independent privateers, that no vessel can approach it with any degree of safety. Doii Salvadar Maso, the late Governor of Vene- zuela, with his Staff, had been sent to Porto Rico by Morillo. Advices of some interest have been received from Portugal. Orders having been given by the Regency for the embarkation of 3000 men for Rio Janeiro, the utmost dis- satisfaction mani- fested itself among the troops marked out for the voyage. One regiment fled wholly into the interior, iu parties amounting to from 50 fo 100 men, carrying with them their arms, clothing, and accoutrements; another is said to have de- clared to their Officers on parade, that they would not be transported without having com mitted any offence, and threatened to repel by force. The influence of Marshal Beresford was called in to appease the disorder, and he at length succeeded in gaining obedience to the will of the Government; but, as it is said, upon a solemn promise given by himself, that such as desired it should be at liberty to return to Por- tugal in three years ; and the men were allowed to take their wives and children. The latest letters from Gibraltar mention, that the garrison and town were perfectly healthy. The intercourse with the Barbary shore was strictly prohibited, and much inconvenience had been in consequence experienced, as the supplies of provisions and live stock were almost entirely from the opposite coast. No farther intelligence, respecting the Plague raging at Algiers, had been received since the arrival of the Satellite brig of war; the officers of which reported the deaths were about 70 daily. One of the letters was written by a person who had been formerly in Barbary during the Plague. He states that the horrors attending it were indescribable. The religion of the natives forbidding them to take any remedy to prevent infection or stop its pro- gress, the miserable wretches were seen expiring 111 the hovels and in the streets, eaten up with disease and vermin. The original diamond ring of Mary Queen of Scots, upon which are engraved the Arms of England, Scotland and Ireland, quartered, and which was produced in evidence at the trial of the unfortunate Mary, as a proof of her pre- tensions to the Crown of England, was in the possession of the late Mr. Blachford, one of the Lords of the Admiralty, at the time of his death. — TI10 history of this fatal ring is curious. It descended from Mary to her grandson Charles I., who gave it, on the scaffold, to Archbishop Jnxorj, for bis son Charles II., who, in liis troubles, pawned it in Holland for 300l., where it was bought by Governor Yale, and sold at his sale for 320/., supposed for the Pretender. Afterwards it came into possession of the Earl of Illa, Duke of Atgyle, and probably from him to the family of Mr. Blachford. At the late sale of his effects, it was said to have been purchas- ed for the Prince Regent. It is still our pleasing task to communicate the continued increase of our Commerce and Manu- factures. The followingstatementsfrom Glasgow and Bristol, arc such as every honest Englishman must rejoice to read. Whatever may be our po- litical feuds or our party prejudices, none but the most base and worthless can view with in- difference the symptoms of returning prosperity, after such an ordeal as we havegone through : " Bristol, Sept. 13.— With the exception ol the Corn trade, our markets this week have pre sented'a scene of bustle and activity, to w hich we had long been unaccustomed. A considera- ble advance has again taken place in iron, and immense quantities are daily sold: but such has been the demand,' that orders which now arrive have to wait at least a month before their execu- tion can be promised. The branch of our com- merce in which the greatest rise has taken place, and in which the greatest returns have been made, is British Plantation Sugar. It is com- puted that less than 7000 hogsheads only, now remain in the importers' hands; and although it is true that we are yet to expect some arrivals, we fear their cargoes will be found inadequate to supply the deficiency, occasioned by the in- creased consumption. The other articles, which chiefly constitute the foreign trade of Bristol, meet a regular demand; and w e believe we should find a difficulty in naming a single manufactory in our neighbourhood, which can at present complain either of w ant of business, or of inade- quate returns. The corn- factors, it is true, se- verely feel the continuance of fine weather, but then it should be recollected, they had their day this time twelvemonth." " Glasgow. Sept.. 13.— A progressive improve- ment has taken place iti our Sugar Market since this day w eek, and our sales amount to 800 hlids. the total advance of the week may be consider- ed 3s. per cwt. In Cottons we continue very gradually to advauce, and the opinion of the holders is sanguine with regard to higher prices. It may be observed, that most of the recent large sales have been to manufacturers, who continue to experience the best demand possible for their goods." THREE VALUABLE FARMS, NEAR TONBRIDGE, KENT. TO BE LET UPON LEASES, By Messrs.

Returns to the amount of ,£ 14,500. have been paid within the last three years to those who have been in- sured Seven Years. In mentioning the above fact, the Directors do not mean to add to the representations by which the mind of the Public is drawn off' from the main object of Insurance, i. e. SECURITY. They declare that in comparison with the CERTAINTY of being exone- rated from the losses of others, and of having tfieir own losses settled liberally, promptly, and under the guaran- tee of ample funds, the CHANCE of a return at the end of Seven Years ofa fifth, a fourth, or a half of the premium, out of the premium and duty paid for Insurance, ought not to have any weight. They rest their claims to pub- lic confidence upon the solidity of the security which they offer, and upon the liberality with which it has been bestowed in the adjustment of losses. This liberality they are enabled atrial! times to exercise from the am- pleuess and permanence of their funds, and from their not beingdriven by their plan of business to the annual making up of a fixed return. The payment of all just claims is their fixed rule; the return varies with the amount of such claims. Ilence claimants upon the County Office liuve never been turned round upon mere legal objections, nor have they had occasion to resort to legal aid in a single instance. To render the protection of the County Fire Office still further useful, the Directors offer their assistance in disco- vering and bringing to justice all persons engaged in the cri- minal acts of firing buildings and stacks insured in the County Office. For this purpose they are willing, either separately or jointly, with parishes or individuals, to offer large rewards upon the commission of such crimes; and. in like manner, to supply the funds necessary for carrying on prosecutions, where such funds are wanting. The Directors 011 their part expect that sufferers from incendiaries will, as required by the 27 Elizabeth, c. 13, give the earliest intelligence of the fact in the nearest town or village, so as by 110 means to exceed two days; and that they will, by themselves or servants having charge ofthe property, within four days at the furthest, from the commission of the crime, make a statement thereof, and of their knowledge, if any, of the incendiary upon oath, before a neighbouring ma- gistrate; and the Directors give notice, that unless such preliminary means be furnished to bring criminals to justice, they will not hold themselves accountable for the loss occasioned.

On tiie examination of ihe bill? of entry, pub- lished ditirnallv, we find that the import of corn from the Baltic alone, including wheat, barley, and oats, has amounted lo from 4,000 to 15,000 daily.

So superabundant is the supply, that application has been made to the Directors Ofthe London Dock Company, to admit into their spacious receptacles, the cargoes of such ships is cannot, for want of room be discharged else- where.

This will be most fully proved by the amount of Premium received during the last three years, which is as follows ;— 1814 - .£' 38,667 18 7 1815 - ,£ 49,157 10 0 1816 - 60 135 IS 0 A surplus capital of upwards of <£ 100,000 has been accumulated, which is retained in aid of the Premiums, ( amounting to .£ 60,000 per annum), and the members have the further security of a reserve capital now form- ing by an annual appropriation of per cent, upon the receipts of premium, which will continue till the amount reaches £ 500,000. LIFE OFFICE.— The Rates are nearly £ 10 per Cent, lower than those demanded by other Offices, and the savings are returned to the Insurers by additions to the'snms secured by their Policies. The Capital ofthe Office exceeds ,£ 190,0011. A - Bonus of 20 per cent, has been declared upon all policies effected prior to June, 1815, by which the sums secured to the insured are considerably increased. Agents for both Institutions are established in every principal town in the kingdom. Further Particulars may be had, GRATIS, of Mr. G. HAWKINS, Maidstone; Mr. S. READER, Cranbrook : or of any ofthe. Agents who arc appointed in the prin- cipal Towns in this County. Nervous Complaints and Debility.

The body was removed to the Bull Inn to he owned, and also for the purpose of a coroner's inquest.

Capper and his servant fell out on the foot- path, but escaped with only some slight contusions. The horse got up and galloped off with the broken chaise, but he was soon stopped. The mare which came in contact was cut in. a most shocking manner, and is not likely ever to he rendered again serviceable; the person riding her received a very severe cut on the leg, hut otherwise appeared to escape unhurt.

Incendiarism-- There is an advertisement from the County Fire Office in our paper of this day which merits great praise. The Directors Noticing the alarming en- crease of the diabolical crime of firing buildings and stacks, declare their readiness to offer large rewards for the discovery of the perpetiators, and to be at the ex- pence of prosecuting them to punishment. If this ex- ample befoHowed by the other Fire Offices, it will go further toward suppressing this mode of vengeance than any thing that has yet been done, a. s it will shew to the criminally disposed, that it is not the individual object of their malice, but the fire Offices whose interest they attack, and that the exertions and funds of associated opulent bodies will be employed to detect aud punish MARRIED.

Suddenly, on Thursday last, at Coom Hill, Meopham, after eating a hearty dinner, aged 83, Mr. Nicholas Reeve, farmer, of that place, universally respected by his numerous relatives aud friends. 14 14s. to 10 5 ditto 1015. 19.-- At this Fair there ihrce Pockets oi'Ncw Hops produced, which old for £ 18 per cwt. and 011 Saturday four more Pockets were sold at X20 per cwt; and notwithstanding tire rumoured improvement, it is pretty clearly ascer- tained that the Duty fortius year will not be more than 3001 altho' the Duty amounted to upwards of 18,000/. in 1815.— The Farnham Planters have finished picking, and they will obtain about one third more than last year, their Duty being estimated at about 800L - Old j Duty.— The Rochester Collection must produce as much ns'it did in 1815, ( which was38,000i. Old Duty), to enable the. kingdom fo pay 70,000/.; but the most experienced persons do not expect ihe whole ofthcDuty for the present year will exceed 60,000/. The following is a literal copy of a lettter from an un- known correspondent respecting Hops:— HOP INTILLIGENCE at West Malling where they have Commenced picking they get one third Less than they Expected in fact that is the Echo from all parts where they Have Commenced picking but and old Observer as long been A where that nine out often wonld begin before Hops where Ripe never was A saying more verified that A burnt Child dreads The fire more than iu the planters dreading the Winds to Avoid which they may lie properly said to have Jumped out of the fry pan in to the fire there will be A tenth will tell A different Tale who" have Adhered to the maxim of not picking untill Their Hops are Ripe and never did The Interest of Planters more demand them To pay Attention to obtaining all they Possiblely Could it is to be feard Brewers must use A substitute if So the planters will Long feel the Thorn to Chastise Their Impatiance THE PRINTER OF THIS PAPER is appointed Agent to the house ol Messrs. RICHARDSON, GOODLUCK & Co- lor the sale of LOTTERY SHARES, and having himself bccnt so fortunate to sell TWO PRIZES OF TWENTY THOUSAND POUNDS, he has considerable reason to hope for similar success in his present engagement; and par- ticularly as Richardson & Co. have been remarkably fortunate iu the late Lotteries. It is a little unfortunate for the inhabitants of this town and neighbourhood ( says a correspondent) that at a time, when we are blessed with an abundance of wheat, there should be a scarcity of flour— thus affording the millers a pretext for keeping the price of that article at seventy- five shillings per sack, whilst good samples of new wheat were offered for sale in our maiket, 011 Thursday last, at the same price per quarter, 75s. with- out being sold. Surely this cannot be called fair dealing with the public I them. The man who was shot 011 Friday nighf, the 5th inst. at Mystole, the seat of Sir John Fagg, hart, was wound- ed in the posteriors, and taken into custody after he was shot, and detained at Mystole until the following morn- ing, from whence lie was conveyed to Canterbury, and then told to go about his business. He stated to the Mayor on Tuesday, that from the wounds he received, he was unable to provide for himself, and applied for relief, but as it appeared that he belonged to a distant parish, ( Croydon, Surrey,) the Mayor directed him to call again at his house in order that he might give di- rections for his wounds to be examined, and proper re- lief to be extended to him ; but the man has not since made liis appearance there, anil it is strongly conjec- tured that after leaving the Mayor's house on Tuesday, he committed a depredation in St. Peter's- street, by stealing a watch , and has made his escape from that city. Indigestion and Bilious Irregularities are not only very common complaints', but are also in many cases productive of most distressing symptoms, such as fre- quent nausea, flatulence, defective appetite, costive- uess, a sense of oppression, sometimes of pain ill the chest, a weightor pressure over the eyes, and a general listlessness or depression of spirits.

Extensive Robbery.-. Two men, the 011c having ihe appearance of a jew of diminutive stature, the other that ofa military officer, out of unifoim, both dressed in great coats, and not of very respectable appearance, arrived at one " of the principal Inns, at Ramsgate, on Tuesday last, in a post- chaise, from Deal,- and after taking some refreshment made various purchases of trifling articles of several shopkeepers ill the town, in payment for which, they passed forged five guinea notes, of the Canterbury Bank ; from Ramsgate they proceeded hy a similar conveyance to Canterbury, where they also put off three five guinea notes, of a like nature, and set off by the Union coach on the same night, for London. I11 the. mean time it was ascertained that both at Dover and Deal, two persons answering their description, had passed many forged five pound notes, of the Margate Bank, and Mr. Cobb, one of the partners in the firm, having traced them to Canterbury, imme- diately followed the coach in a chaise and four, and fortunately succeeded in taking them into custody, at a watering house 011 the Greenwich road from whence they were carried to Bow street, and Thursday con- veyed to Dover, for final examination. The prisoners, it is conjectured, landed from the op- posite coast, as their persons are not known to the police officers at Bow- street. The forged notes were without stamps, those of the Canterbury Bank were inimitably well executed, but those of the Margate Bank, were much inferior in appearance, being generally dirty and soiled, as if hy wear, for the better purpose of deception. On the facility with which forgeries are effected, a correspondent observes that he cannot refrain 110111 con- demning Ihe new invention of Transparent Slates, by the use of which, a person may make himself master of any one's signature with a little practice. This inven- tion must certainly afford great facility in the art of forgery, for by placing writing, or even drawing under the slato, a facsimile thereof is readily obtained, and it is only by some such method, - That the Canterbury notes alluded to, can have been executed with so much precision. OLD BAILEY, SEPT. 20.— JohnVartie was indicted for forging and uttering a check for 4001. with intent to defraud John Brenchley, C. Becket, and George Rich; and Williams, Moffat, and Co. Mr. Rich deposed, that he is a partner in the Graves- end bank, in which the prisoner was a clerk. On the 5th of August, witness directed him to write a letter, to Williams's house, which, when he had done, witness signed it, and then delivered it back to liini. At that time there was not in the letter as now—" also R. Mace, Lient. 4001. whose signature yon have above." That part of the letter was iu the prisoner's hand writing. On the 8th Aug. tlie prisoner was missing from the house and never returned till lie was brought back in custody. Edward H. Smeetham is clerk in tho. count) y de- partment of Williams's banking- house, in Birchin- lane. The letter produced came from the Gravesend bank. O11 the 8th of August a person came to the office, and enquired whether they had an order from the Gravesend bank to pay 4001. to Lieut. Mace. He believed the pri- soner to be the. man, but he. would not positively swear to him. Witness said there was such an order; and turning to the letter, he asked the prisoner if his name was Lieut. Mace, to which he answered, yes. Witness then filled up the body of a check, aud the prisoner signed it. Witness compai ed it with ihe signature " It. Mace" in the letter, and the cheek was paid George Bishop, cashier 111 Williams's house, paid the check in a 3001. and a 1001. note. He had 110 recollec- tion of the person to whom he paid it. Daniel Bishop, a Bow- street officer, went in conse- quence to Abbeville, in France, where he apprehended the prisoner 0: 1 the 23d of August, and told him what he took him for. He admitted thai he had received the 4001 in a 3001. and 1001. note. Witness asked where the notes were; he said he had changed the 3001 one at the Bank of England, for small notes, and gave up ihe 1001. note to witness. In his trunk witness found 2101. in small notes, and a gold watch, chain, andseals, which he said he had purchased with part of Ihe money. The number of the 1001. note which the prisonei gave up to witnesseorresponded w ith that paid to him at Williams's. Mr. Alley, for the prisoner, contended that this amounted only to a fraud, in personating a fictions in, dividual; qot to a forgery, according to the statute. Mr. Justice Holroyd said, his brother Judges and himself had no doubtof this being a forgery, supposing the facts proved. Mr. Rich and a number of witnesses, gave the pri- soner a most excellent character. The Jury almost instantly found the prisoner Guilty — Death; but strongly recommended him to mercy, 011 account of his yonth ( he being only 19 years of age), and his former good character; in which recommend, 1- tion they were joined by Mr. Rich, who manifested the deepest emotion at the unfortunate situation in vthi^ h the prisoner stood.
