Tuesday were received the Paris Papers of Saturdav : — 1The Election in Paris has termi- nated much more iu favour of Government than from the result of the previous scrutinies could have been anticipated. M. M. Goupy, Bellart, Pasqnier, and Breton old Ministerialists, have been elected. The fifth Deputy returned was M. Casimir Perrier, but there being a doubt whether he has attained the age ( 40) required by law, M. Olivier, a Royalist, who was next iti amount of numbers, is to sit in the room of should lie be found too young for a Deputy. Benjamin de Constant and La Fayette have both been distanced, and the Ministers have five Votes out of the eight Deputies returned. By the Paris Papers of Sunday which have arrived, we learn the death of Duke. Louis of Wurtemburg, uncle to the present King, who died of an apoplexy on the 20th inst. at Kirck- eim, near Stuttgard, in the 61st year of his age. According to the Journal de Marseille, the King of Naples is ill. The Elections in France have nearly termi- nated. There are sixty- three Deputies to be returned to the Chamber, by twenty- four Departments. Of these twenty- four, nineteen have completed their task, and the remaining live it is expected, will immediately finish. It is gratifying to observe the order and tranquil- lity which have prevailed during these trans- actions, unless it may be inferred that the peo- ple of France do not yet feel any very lively in- • erest in the matter. That such, however, was not llie case in the capital, is true, for the two parties there pursued their objects with unusual ardour and activity. But in the departments it does not appear that any strongly contested Elections occurred ; on the contrary, in many places the Electors sent back their former re- presentatives. Nor has the result upon the whole, been such as to afford a triumph to any party. Generally speaking, the ministerialists have been successful ; yet, there are not want- ing instances, both in Paris and in the Provinces, there the liberals have prevailed. This mixed success is preferable, to the absolute ascendancy of either party. It shew s , that no preponde- rating influence exists, which must always nul- lify the beneficial effects of a delegated authority, by transferring it from the people to a faction. The King of Spain has at length, formally ra- tified the Treaties with the Allied Powers, which relate to the future destination of the Duchies of Parma, Placentia and Guastalla, now possessed by the Ex- Empress Maria Louisa. The negociations upon this subject were com- menced by M. Gomez Labrador, the Plenipo- tentiary of Spain, at the Congress of Vienna, and they have been under discussion from that period till last June w hen they were brought to a satisfactory conclusion by the Duke de Casa Fernando nunez, the Spanish Ambassador at Paris. By these Treaties, the reversion of the said Duchies is secured to the Infant Don Charles Louis, son of the Queen of Etruria, sister to the King of Spain, and who is, mean- while, to receive the states of Lucca, with cer- tain stipulated assignments, till the reversion takes place, it is not said whether this re- version depends upon the life of the Ex- Em- press only, or upon that of her son also. The vintage of this year promises to be very successful throughout France The following regulation has been lately adopt- ed in all the ports of France. Another is also enforced at Calais, ofa still more oppressive na- ture. Only the regular Mail Packets are allowed to land their passengers after 8 o'clock at niglit. Any other vessels arriving after that hour are obliged to wait till the next morning, notwith- standing the want of accommodation for the immense numbers which they carry to pass the night on board. Every Traveller or Passenger arriving in France is hereby informed, that amongst the goods which he brings with him, and which are understood to be for his rise, none must be found belonging to any of tbe classes hereafter described ; SUCH AS :— Tissues of every kind, in cotton, wool, hair, or a mix tore of such materials, comprehending all objects belonging to hosiery or the lace trade; All works in polished metals, whether plated or var- nished, without any distinction, such as those which belong to iron- ware, cutlery, or clock and watch- making; All works belonging to the toy. trade; All works in leather; All objects in glass or crystal; All objects in stone ware. All these different classes of merchandise being ab- solutely prohibited by the laws of the kingdom. Tbe Travellers are therefore informed that all objects of such a nature, which they may through error have brought over with them, must be immediately declared to the custom- house, to the end that they may be re- ex- ported ; in default of which, all such goods will be seized and confiscated, and the proprietor prosecuted as the laws direct. They are informed, besides, that no difference will he made betwixt tissues in the piece or cut in parcels, and those which, to elude the prohibition, have been cut out, sewed and shaped into sheets, curtains, petti- coats, shalls, or any other kind of wearing apparel, even should they have been washed or marked : and that the seizure and prosecution will be incurred whenever the custom- house shall clearly perceive that the tissues are new, and only fashioned to evade the absolute prohibi- tion pronounced against them. AMERICAN PAPERS. New York, Sept. 4.— John D. Heath, Esq. lute of Charleston ( S. C.), who was appointed Judge of the Admiralty Court at Amelia Island, by General M'Gregor, has resigned, we are in- formed, his office, and arrived here a few days since, in the schooner Commodore Porter, from St. Mary's. A difference in opinion between him and the Commanding General is said to be the cause of this sudden resignation. ( From the Richmond Enquirer of Sept. 1.) The mortality at Point Petrie, Guadaloupe, is said not to have in the least abated ; great num- bers of the inhabitants die daily, and nearly all the troops in the garrison have been swept off, which rendered a draught of the citizens neces- sary to perform the ordinary duties of the soldiers. Norfolk, Aug. 13.— Arrived the schooner Huntress, Thompson, 16 days from New York, bound to Savannah, in distress. On the 1st inst, off Cape Hatteras, six days out, while lying to under double reefed foresail, in a heavy gale, carried away the fore- topsail yard, sprung the foremast ill the cross- trees, and split the sails, on account of which, and the rudder having been injured, it became necessary to put into some port to refit. On Wednesday last, 12 miles to the E. of Cape Hatteras, spoke tiie schooner Malony, from New York, bound to North Carolina, who kindly supplied the Hun- tress with water and candles. On Saturday night last, at 10 o'clock, saw two flashes and heard the report ofa cannon, and next morning, at 0 a. m. spoke the schooner Milo, from New York bound to Savannah, 6 days ; reported that she had been chased and fired at the preceding evening by a brig, supposed to be the Morgiana, lately fitted out at New York to cruise against the Spaniards— her shot fell short, and the Mih) eluded her by wearing round and standing on another tack. Philadelphia, Aug. 16. Captain Jenkins, ofthe ship General Scott, arrived at New York on Saturday iast from the coast of Chili, informs, that the army of the Patriots, under General Martins, consisting of 12,000 men, took Valpa- raiso about the 17th of February, and that the General had returned to Buenos Ayres for more troops. He had previously taken St. Jago. The American Official Paper, The National Intelligencer, speaks of M'Gregor's intended invasion of East Florida, in the following terms ; —" The situation of the settlements on the Main is represented as peculiarly distressing. The Inhabitants feel neither confidence in, nor attachment for M'Gregor. Their present Gov- ernor has treated them with great lenity, and generally won their esteem. They are opposed to any change, except such a one as shall place them under the jurisdiction of the United States, from which many of them are emigrants; and this event they confidently expect will ere long take place. Those capable of bearing arms have been called from their homes to defend St. Augustine, leaving their families and possessions unprotected. The Indians in the rear, availing themselves of this state of things, have ventu- red to commence depredations upon the settle- ments. It will require a force of 3,000 men, with artillery, to subdue St. Augustine; and of course M'Gregor is wholly incompetent to effect any thing against it" A letter from Trinidad, mentions the arrival of an express from the Independent Admiral Brion, with intelligence, that he had captured 14 of the enemy's large vessels in the Oroonoko; one of which had the Governor, Fitzgerald, General La Torre, and the Bishop on board, with the whole of the Stall and treasure. It is said, that such was the scarcity at Angustura previous to its evacuation, that a cat sold for 30 dollars. It is among the circumstances favour- able to the independence of South America, thai tbe Government of Spain aud i'. s Representatives ELECTION OF LORD MAYOR. On Monday la^ t a Common Hall was held for the purpose of proceeding to the Election of a Lord Mayor for the year ensuing. After the usual ceremonies the Common Serjeant read over the names to them of those Aldermen who were eligible, as follows:— Ald. G. Bridges, W. Heygate, R. A. Cox, and J. J. Thorp. Sir M. Bloxam, Aid. C,. Smith, J. Atkins, S. Goodbehere, C. Magnay, Mr. Hitchins then came forward for tlie purpose of proposing the Lord Mayor and Mr. Alderman Goodhe- liere. He adverted to the proceedings of last year, when the present Lord Mayor was again elected to the Civic Chair. That glorious struggle, he said, ought to be a stimulus to the Livery of London again to exer- cise their undoubted right of electing that man who in their own minds was the most competent to fill the office of Chief Magistrate. The country, be said, had arrived at a state of despotism.— Hisses.— He would repeat that it wasat a state of despotism. Could it, he would ask, be denied, that within the lust 50 years this Government had extorted more money out ofthe pockets ofthe People than any other nation ?—- Could il be de- nied that it had been most profuse and lavish in its expenditure? Mr. Sheriff Desanges called Mr. Hitchins to order. Mr. Oliver then addressed tbe Livery. He said the Livery had last year a very good reason for re- electing the Lord Mayor, since it was then stated to them that he had plans on foot which he bad not been able to com plete. That reason no longer existed. He had always found their Aldermen honest in the discharge of their duties as Chief Magistrates, whether they were Minis teriatsts or otherwise. The Livery bad already suffi- ciently shewn its strength in punishing Mr. Alderman C. Smith, and " it was excellent to have a giant's strength, but tyrannous to use it like a giant." He trusted a majority would think Alderman Smith a tit and proper person to fill the office of Lord Mayor, Mr. Williams seconded the motion. The Common Sergeant then informed the Livery that Messrs. Hitchins and Vanghan had put the Lord Mayor in nomination OFFFNCES, I- CI Shameful Negligence. — Sunday afternoon a fellow, in the garb of a Gentleman, mounted on grey horse, in the most careless manner rode over a fine child about 5 years of age, near Exe- ter Change, Notwithstanding the calls of those persons who witnessed the transaction, he spur- red on his horse and rode off without waiting to inquire what injury had been done. We trust, from the publicity given to his description, he will not escape tiie ends of justice; and thereby become another lesson to those wanton wretches who regardless of all moral feeling, as remarked by the Judge at the Old Bailey, on a late trial for running over and killing a man at Hyde Park corner, commit those acts of carelessness, amount- ing in his mind to murder. Child Stealing.— It appears that a brute in the shape ofa human being stole a child lately, from its parents in Liverpool. After this ag- gravated offence, calculated more than any other, to harrow up the feelings, and destroy the peace of a family, the wretch we are tcld actually crippled the child in order to make it an object of commisseration, and with the help- less infant in this state, he called to solicit cha- rity at Hooton Hall, in Wirral, the hospitable seat of Sir T, S. M. Stanley. Bt. From thence he proceeded to Chester, where he was chaced by the afflicted father of the little sufferer, and happily apprehended. This species of offence is becoming quite common; but what punish- ment is adequate to it ? Inquest.— An Inquest was on Thursday held at the Sun and Sportsman, High- street, Mary- le- bonne,' on the body of Mr. Michaelworth, a tailor, in Francis- street, Tottenham- court- road. The namesof the several eligible Aldermen were put \ Mr. Farrer of St. James's Market, saw the body, up, when by far the greater number appeared for the Lord Mayor; but the shew was so nearly equal for Mr. Alderman C, Smith, and Mr. Alderman Goodbehere, that the Sheriffs, after a consultation, declared them- selves unable to decidc. The. Common Serjeant then informed the Livery that the opinion of the Sheriffs was, that their choice had fallen on the Lord Mayor; hut they wished ihe names of Aldermen C. Smith and Goodbehere to be put to the shew of hands again. This annunciation was received with much displea- sure ; nevertheless, the names were again put up, when The Common Serjeant acquainted the Livery, that iu the opinion of the Sheriffs, their second choice had fallen on Alderman Goodbehere; which information was received with the greatest applause. The Common Sergeant announced that since the de- claration of the Sheriffs, he had had a requisition pre- sented to hiin, ' signed by several Liverymen, demand- ing a poll on behalf of Mr, Alderman C. Smith; and also a declaration demanding a poll on behalf of Mr. Alderman Atkins. At 3 o'clock the poll books were opened, and the poll continued till four, when the numbers were declared to be as follows:— For the Lord Mayor... 103 j • Mr. Alderman Smith... 100 Mr. Ald. Goodbehere 97 Mr. Ald. Atkins 43 SECOND DAY— STATE OF THE POLL. Mr. Alderman Smith... 690 I The Lord Mayor 371 Mr, Alderman Atkins 394 | Ald. Goodbehere 355 STATE OF THE POLL— THIRD DAY. Mr. Alderman Smith 1348 f The Lord Mayor 553 Letters received on Wednesday morning from Barbadoes mention, that the affair between the crew of the American merchantman and the sailors belonging to a Danish ship of war, is likely to produce serious consequences. A cor- respondence between the Governor at St. Croix and the American Consuls of the adjacent Islands, particularly St. Thomas's, has taken place, in which very intemperate language was made use ot. The consequence is said to be, that the whole transaction will immediately be laid before the American Government. in Venezuela are not on the best terms. Whilst Morillo was in Santa Fe, he blamed the Gover- nor of Caraccas for all the disasters which hap- pened in the Atlantic Provinces during his ab- sence; and the Government at home reproaches hiin for the loss of Margaritta. The Castilian pride being up, the Commander in Chief is ordered, in the most peremptory manner, to punish the Margaritaneans for their rebellion; and to do this,. lie uncovers the rest of the country. It has been already stated, lhat a suspension of hostilities had taken place between the con- tending armies in Peru, which was expected to lead fo a coalition of both against Old Spain. Letters of the 4th of July from Buenos Ayres, mention, that General Belgrano, the Commander ofthe patriotic troops, was, at the date of the last advices, on the point of proceeding toTarita, with a small escort, to have an interview with the Royalist General Serena. In the royalist camp it was given out that the purpose of the intended conference was, to arrange about an ex change of prisoners; in that of their oppo- nents it was expected that Serena would capitu- late, in consequence of the discontents of the Creoles, and the difficulty of effecting his retreat. The letters mentioning that tbe interview had taken place, and terminated iu an armistice, were, we tire given to understand, dated one day later than those just alluded to. Willi re- gard to the state of affairs in Chili, the following particulars are given in one of the letters from Buenos Ayres :—" The unexampled success which crowned the efforts of our army in Chili under San Martin, have not yet placed it in com- plete possession of that country, as the enemy has retired to the strong hold of Talcuhano, the port of Conception, which, from being a penin- sula, he has made an island, and fortified with heavy artillery. Sanchez, the Royalist Comman- der, had previous about 1000 men, and has re- cently received a reinforcement of 400 more from Lima, He has also with him the Venganza fri- gate, of 44 guns ; Sebastiana Schooner; Indaga- dora and Potrillo sloops of war, badly manned, but always capable of doing much mischief; while the Patriots are without any naval force. O'Higgins, the Director, has taken the field against them, with about 2500 men; and we hope soon to learn something decisive. The possession of so small a point' by the enemy would be a matter of little consequence in a po- litical point of view, did it not keep up the spirit of the Spaniards at Lima, and encourage them with hopes, as long as they retain any footing in that Province." Mr. Alderman Atkins 892 1 Mr. Ald. Goodbehere 522 When the poll closed this day, several persons who were in the front of the Hustings, at the striking of the clock, whose voles were tendered iu favour of Alder- men Smith and Atkins, were compelled to waitfor ano- ther opportunity of publicly delivering their opinions in opposition to a low attempt at dictating to the first commercial city in the world. Mr. Alderman C. Smith and Mr. Alderman Atkins were on the Hustings nearly the whole of the day ; but neither the Lord Mayor nor Mr. Alderman Goodbehere made their appearance. When tbe numbers were announced upon the board, they were accompanied with the usual salutation from the rabble below; for it was clear, that not one in 20 assembled was a Liveryman, or had any right but that of courtesy, to nil admission to the Hall. Mr. Al- derman Smith expressed a desire to address the Meet- ing, This, as may readily be supposed, was out of the question, as the persons whose sole object was to listen to the seditious and intemperate harangues of Messrs. Wooler and Hitchins were not very likely to allow the utterance of sentiments at such perfect variance with the doctrines of their favourites. Mr. Alderman Smith, ( whose private characterand conduct even his enemies admit to be nnimpeachable and meritorious,) seeing lhat all attemps at obtainingaliearing were ineffectual, waved his hat, and exultingly pointing to the poll- board, bowed respectfully to the crowd and retired. He went as usual, through the Hall, accompanied by several friends, wisely leaving his opponents to compensate, if they chose, by empty jargon, for the want of credit aud respectability. STATE OF THE POLL.— FOURTH DAY. The polling finished on Thursday at three o'clock. The number polled were as follow : Mr. Alderman Smith 1793 | Mr. Alderman Alkins 1247 The Lord Mayor... 672 Alder. Goodbehere 632 Mr. Alderman Smith came forward, and bowed very emphatically, at the same time pointing to the state of Ihe poll. He then retired with Alderman Atkins, amidst hisses and partial approbation. Mr. Hitchens and Mr. Wooler, as usual, addressed the Livery. * STATE OF THE POLL.— FIFTH DAY. ' Flic following was on Friday the state of the poll at 3 o'clock, when it closed for the day :— Mr. Alderman Smith 2017 I The Lord Mayor... 735 Air. Alderman Atkins 1412 j Alder. Goodbehere 687 STATE OF THE POLL.— SIXTH DAY. Mr. Alderman Smith 2138 I The Lord Mayor.. 783 Mr. Alderman Atkins 1197 | Alder. Goodbehere 728 Both Mr. Alderman Atkinsand Mr. Alderman Smith bowed in front of the hustings to the concourse of people assembled in the hall, and then retired, proceed- ing directly through the crowd, and accompanied with the usual salutations. A respectable Alderman was introduced to a fashionable party of French lately in Paris, who received him rather coolly, as they considered that he was not the character represented, be- cause he had not " a monstrous large belly and a purple nose." The web footed ladies and gentlemen are re- turning fast from the watering places to enjoy their fire sides, to talk over the delights of their excursion, and to expatiate oti the virtues of salt waterablution and the frolicsof the coast. Many- young ladies, it appears, have lost their hearts, and many old ones have got the rheumatism in their search after health. As Baron Strandman has been sent from Rus- sia by the Emperor Alexander, to see the mode of educating the children of poor parents in this country, it proves at least that Dr. Bell's admi- rable system has made a great noise in the world. A Proclamation was signed at the Forts ofthe Red River , ou the 15th of July, by Lord Sel- kirk, Mr. Bird, and Mr. M'Donnell, on the one hand, and Mr. M'Gillivray and M. de Roche- blanc on the other, in furtherance of the object of the Government Commissioners, and enjoin- ing the respective agents of the two parties to pay implicit obedience to Sir John Sherbrooke's Proclamation of the 3d May last, on Wednesday morning, in the river ill the Re- gency Park. On getting it out, the cloaths, which were nearly new, appeared much torn and disordered, and the pockets were turned in- side out; there were other marks of violence, and strong indications that the deceased had struggled with some person or persons previous to getting into the water.— Mr. J. Walker, of 170, Tottenham- court- road, said the deceased had lived in his house near 12 months. He was a respectable master tailor. On Tuesday even- ing he left his house to go to Homer- street, New road. His wife promised to meet him on his re- turn home in Edgware- road. She accordingly went, and walked in the road two hours, and went then to Homer- street, and was informed that he had not been there, and the next morn- ing he heard of the murder. When the deceased left his house he had a pocket- book, containing cards of his address ; and in his small- cloaths pocket he had some silver, but no notes, as lie or his wife knew of; nor had he a watch. Mr. Wilmer, surgeon, of High- street, Mary- la- bonne, observed on the head marks of a great violence in several places; but the wound which caused his death was on the top of the head, the skull was fractured, and appeared to have been the effect of a blow given by a hammer. The effect of either the blows he received on the head would have caused immediate insensibility. He was of opinion that the deceased had been attacked, treated with great violence, and thrown into the river. The Jury, without hesitation, returned a verdict of— Wilful Murder against some person or persons unknown. About nine o'clock last Wednesday evening se'nnight, a party of eight or nine men, one of them masked, the others undisguised, knocked at the window of Capt. B. Johnson, of the Water- ford Militia, at Springhill, in that county, about three miles below the City of Waterford, near the Passage- road: Capt. Johnson immediately opened the window, when two shots were instantly fired at him, and he was wounded severely in the head and the belly. A Mr. Suttridge, who was in company with Capt. Johnson, got out of the house with intention to alarm the neighbourhood, but was wounded by the villains with a knife, and compelled to return. Murder is supposed to have been the sole object of this outrageous visit, as the fellows left the place immediately after firing, although a gold watch and a quantity of plate were in full view upon the table. A few days since, the dwelling- house of J, Bolton, situate in Newbury Wash, Highclere, Hants, was broken open by three men, who dragged Bolton from his bed, and threatened to murder him if he did not tell where his money was. In the mean time his wife escaped out of a back window, and alarmed the neighbours; a party of whom arrived just as the robbers weie leaving the house. One was taken; and ano- ther, who made a determined resistance, was shot; the third unfortunately escaped with a bundle, containing an old- fashioned gold- ring, some guineas, notes, & c. Bow street.— Monday a man was examined before the sitting Magistrate on the following charge :— Maria Hern, servant to Mr. Jacobs, of Michael- place, Brompton, stated, that she was left in care of the house on Sunday last, the rest of the family having gone tochurch. About .0 minutes before one, she was alarmed by a noise in the drawing- room ; and on going there, she discovered the prisoner in the act of opening her master's portmanteau; she screamed out and said, " You villain how came you in the house ; The prisoner made no reply, but came up to her and caught hold of her arms; she resisted, and called out murder ; Ihe prisoner swore if she made the least noise he would kill her with the knife he had in his hand ; she said, for God's sake spare my life. Prisoner said he would spare her life if she w ould keep quiet, and remain in that room. The prisoner then attempted to fasten the door, and confine witness iu the room, which she resisted ; the prisoner cut her on the back of her hand, to make her let go her hold of the door: she then got from him, and going to the drawing- room w indow, called out murder. In a few minutes Mr. Holliday and others came into the house, and secured the prisoner. Mr. Holliday stated, that on Sunday last, about one o'clock, he was passing . Mr. Jacobs's house, and was alarmed by the sash being thrown hastily up, and the last witness crying out murder, that there was a villain in ti e house robbing it. Mr. Holliday went to the street- door, which was fast, and was obliged to force a window to get into the house. On the stairs he met the pri- soner without his shoes, whom he secured and conveyed to Knightsbridge watch- house. He was fully committed to Newgate for trial. THE ASHCROFTS AND HOLDEN. [ From The Manchester Chronicle.] In continuation of the justice of the verdict in the case ot these men, W » e can add ( from authority), that since the trial the following evidence has been dis- covered, and the facts sworn to before W. D. Evans, Esq. the Sitting Magistrate, at the New Bailey Court- house in this town :— Two boys [ Joseph and Peter Blomiley, sons of John Blomiley, of Pendleton] state, that they were gathering primroses in a field near the New Eccles- road, and that an old man crossed the hedge between five and six o'clock, carrying a bundle under bis arm, and came towatds them: after which he passed over another hedge, and went into a plantation or clough, where they saw him stoop a little w hile, and then he fetched a grass clod, which he carried with both hands to the place where he had been stooping, and he afterwards cnt two sticks, from one of which lie peeled off the bark, and having done so, he stuck it in the ground, near where he carried the clod to. That he then came back, and proceeded over both hedges into the New Road, and went towards Manchester; but that he had then no bundle, with him. That they afterwards knew the old man again when he appeared at the inquest at Pendle- ton, but they thought nothing of it, until their sister was lately reading the trial of the Ashcrofts and Holden, when the younger of them ( Peter) said, interrupting his s; ster, that lie and his brother had seen old Ash- croft bury a bundle in the clugh; and then related thp. above transaction: upon which the mother states that she thought it her duty to disclose it to the constables at Pendleton, and accordingly did so. [ Upon which she and her daughter attended at the New Bailey on the 24th ult., with the boys, and all of them joined in a deposition of the facts above related.] John Richardson, who is a carter in the service of Messrs. Bateman and Sharrats. and lives iu Potts- street, Manchester, has also stated upon oath, that he saw Holdcn and the Ashcrofts on Saturday the 2fith April last, about 12 o'clock, at the Hare and Hounds, and that a woman came in and called them out, saying, " You are wanted;" and added, " Come Holden, will yon go ?" On which old Ashcroft got up, and said, " Let us go, Holden, or we can't complete our job to- day." Upon which all the four men went out with the woman. The witness drank his gill of ale, and went to his cart in a few minutes afterwards, and as he passed Mr. Little- wood's he saw Holden alone, standing opposite to Mr. Littlewood's front gate, with a stick in his hand ( as if knocking small stones about), and looking about him oc- casionally ; and witness, perceiving Holden look ear- nestly at him, who was riding on his cart, he got oft', lest he should be fined. That witness, when he had got about 200 yards looked back, when he again observed Holden standing in the same situation. That he saw no more jifhimbn that day ; but, on tbe following day, witness went to seek his son, and happened to go to Abraham Hayes's house, near New Islington, aud asked Mrs. Hayes if she had seen his son ; who said she had not; and while he stood at the door, perceiving some linen in two mugs ou the floor, he said, " You are getting for- ward with yonr work:" she answered," It is only some linen for a person that is going into the country." That the mugs were under the window, and close together ; that the neck and sleeves ofa shirt were in oue mug, and the laps in the other; and that witness saw the neck part of the shirt was spotted with blood ; aud that the water appeared to a have a good deal of blood in it; but that the other mug had no blood in it he believes. That witness then saw Holden, whom he had seen the day before at Pendleton, sitting at the fire- side; and is quite sure that he was the same man. OLD BAILEY.— Wednesday morning the Recorder sentenced all the prisoners who have been convicted of different offences during tbe Sessions ou the London side, and for the pnrposeof clearing the gao lot'as many of the prisoners as possible, a^ it is extremely crowded. Thirteen prisoners were sentenced to seven year's trans- portation, seven were sentenced to be transported for the term of their natural lives, all convicted of picking pockets. Two were sentenced to be transported for 14 years, convicted of having forged notes in their pos- session, knowing them to be forged. Ten were sen- tenced to be imprisoned in the House of Correction for various terms. These were all the London convicts. The Court then proceeded to sentence several on the Middlesex side. Mary Chambers, for killing her husband .( convicted of Manslaughter), was sentenced to one month's imprison- ment in Newgate; Wm. Chamberlain, for Manslaughter, was sentenced to a year's imprisonment in the House of Correction. Eighteen prisoners were sentenced to be transported for 7 years ; 8 were sentenced to be. transported for life; 3 for 14 years ; and 45 other con- victs were sentenced to imprisonment for various terms. The hardened character of some of the convicts sen- tenced to transportation for life, is lamentable. No one of them went from the bar without uttering some specie's of insolent remark. One of them, Margaret Hunter, begged two more days to be added to her sen- tence—- for luck. There are yet 200 prisoners to he tried, and Ihe Ses- sions will not be finished before Saturday se'nnight. DREADFUL EFFECT OF JEAI. OUSY.— On Tuesday, the 23d of September, about 9 o'clock in the evening, as Mrs. Jane Prevost, of Richmond, was taking leave of a young man, known by the name of George Mills, w ho was paying his addresses to her, and who had just supped with her at her house, he suddenly drew a dirk, which he had previously taken out of a tuck- stick, and with violence stabbed her under the left breast at the same, time exclaiming with a laugh, " 1 have done for yon." The blade remained in the wound till she pulled it out her self, when she immediately fainted from loss of blood. Her servant, seeing what was done, ran into the street, crying " murder;" and in a moment the house was filled with her neighbours, who secured Mills, and delivered him into the custody of a constable. At first, from the great effusion of blood, the life of Mrs. Prevost was thought to be in imminent danger, but strong hopes are now entertained of her recovery, as it is ascertained that the instrument, which had been sharpened for the purpose, fortunately took an oblique direction, turned, perhaps, by the bones of her stays, and consequently did not enter so deeply as the mark of blood on its blade at first induced all to suppose. On Friday afternoon Mrs, Prevost was able to give her deposition, when the Rev. Dr. Sampson, of Petersham, attended for that purpose; and having taken her information, together with those of some other persons, and having examined Mills, who said that his intention was not to give Mrs. Prevost a mortal wound, but only such a one as might disable her from keeping the appointment which she had made with a gentleman of Chelmsford, Dr. Sampson fully committed Mills to the gaol at Newington, to lake his trial at the next Assizes for the county of Surrey,— It seems that jealousy was tbe cause of this dreadful act. Mills having ihe day preceding intercepted a letter addressed by Mrs. Prevost to a person at Chelmsford. Mills is only 17 or 18 years old, Mrs. Prevost at least 25. She has entered into recognizance to prosecute. On Monday night some villains broke open the granary of Mr. Fausset, a farmer, residing near the Blackbird, at Lowlayton, and robbed it of 12 sacks of wheat; they also broke open his stables, and harnessed tbe horses, which they put to a cart and loaded it with the sacks, anil drove into Epping Forest, where they emptied the sacks, and put the wheat into others brought there for the purpose, and carried it away iu another cart, as Mr. Fausset's cart, horses, and sacks were found in the Forest next morning. Small Pox.— An extraordinary circumstance took place on Wednesday last, at Homerton near Peterborough, in Northamptonshire. Mrs. Old- ham, a lady of 105 years of age, and the nio- llier ofa very large family, expired, after a most violent attack of the small pox. It is worthy of remark, that every member of her family iiad been affected by it in the natural course, and it had visited the place of her residence no less than six times within her own recollection, and though never restrained in her intercourse with the inhabitants anp other neighbours, she did not take the least infection. LONDON, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1817. Thursday morning the PAris Papers of Mon- day were received. The following are extracts : " Paris, Sept. 29.— Deputies elected,— " Dordogne.— M. Barbary Langlade. " Gers.— Lieutenant- General Lagrange, Presi- dent of the Electoral College, M. de Cassagnoles, and M. Delong. " Herault.— The Marquis de Montcalm, Pre- sident of the Electoral College, and M. Durand- Fajon, both re- elected. ' " Lot.— The Marquis de Rastiginac. PRETENDED DAUPHIN. " The following is a new instance of credulity : ' In the month of October 1815, a man made his appearance in the Department of Maine et Loire, and announced himself under the name of Charles de Navarre, son of Louis XVI. He pretended that Louis XVII did not die in the Temple, but that he escaped from his Tyrants, that instead of him, the body of an unknown child was. presented to the knife of the anato- mists, and that the legitimate heir, restored at length to his people and his country, was now returned to take possession of the imprescriptible rights transmitted to him bv his ancestors. It might be imagined perhaps, that the physical and moral qualities of the pretender were in unison with his pretensions. So far from this, the soi- disant LouisXVII. was utterly destitute of in- struction and education, and the vacancy of his mind harmonized w ith the vulgarity of his man- ners. There was nothing in that style which an- nounces in a young Prince the happiest sallies. One sought in his countenance for that noble ap- pearance the characteristic impress of the traits of a Bourbon. He presented nothing in common with the unfortunate sou of Louis the Six- teenth but the name of which he had robbed him. Extraordinary, however, is the stupid credulity of the vulgar; this impostor shewed himself and made dupes. The great name, of which he had insolently taken possession, ope rated like a talisman on the minds of the igno- rant. Some imbeciles pushed their folly so far as to despoil themselves of their means to support this adventurer; and as all means are good in the eyes of those who only seek to propagate discord, and malevoleuce, seized upon the falsehood ofthe impostor, and attempted to give it to the minds of fools, the appearance of truth. Arrested and sent to prison, the adventurer persisted in his pretensions, his partisans, if we may give that name to a few isolated individuals, whose credu- lity intriguers were desirous of trying— his par- tisans, complained of his misfortunes, and a ridi culous pity was engendered, which soon, 1iow- ever, disappeared, and of which there now re- mains nothing but the shame of having felt it. ' Who is then this man, who from the bottom of his prison is at once tbe hope of the discon- tented, and the idol of tools. His name is Ma- thurin Bruneau, he was born the 10th May, 1784, at Vezins, Canton of Chollet, Arrondissement of Beaupreau, Department of Maine et Loire. His father was a wooden shoemaker in that village. He lost his parents at the age of between seven and eight years, he was received and taken care of by Jeanne Bruneau, bis sister, then married to ~ a man named De Carmay, also a wooden shoe- maker. His bad disposition, and particularly bis aversion to work, induced his brother- in- law to send him away when he was about eleven years of age. Mathurin Bruneau began then to practice impositions with regard to his birth, and passed himself as the son of the Baron de Vezins. He was received by this title at the Chateau of Angrie, near Conde, by the Viscoun- tess de Turpin de Crisse, who paid him all the attention which she thought due to a victim of the war in La Vendee. ' He was for about a year detained as a lunatic in the Bicetre, at Rouen, at which period there was suddenly circulated, under the name of this individual, calling himself Louis XVII, a Letter and a Proclamation, both addressed to the Duchess d'Angouleme. These papers were, it appears, the production of a malefactor, con- demned lo compulsory labour, and confined in the Bicetre until his sentence could be carried iuto execution. The latter, it seems, had only iu view a division of the profits of the imposture. Two or three women were compromised by hav- ing circulated the proclamation. All this, agree- ing with the Rouen Journalist, is nothing but a gossiping intrigue, unworthy of public attention. At Rouen the affair docs not occupy the minds of reasonable people, and only strangers speak ofit with any gravity.' , Friday morning were received a further stip- j ply of German Papers. The most important j piece of intelligence w hich they communicate is, that Russia has assumed a menacing attitude j which is very short ami full, is " composed of with respect to Turkey, at the moment when, j materials: the laee is brought very full in fr through the mediation of England, the previ- arm> * « > d divided by tucks into full compartments, which ouslv existing; differences bet ween the two Powers pearl tasels.

The- sleeve, the same front ofthe were on the point of adjustment. The occasion of this sudden alteration in tbe conduct of the Russian Government is, the barbarous execution of the celebrated Czeruey- George by order of the Turkish Governor of Servia. The Russian Ambassador was directed to demand of the Porte, within 14 days, a public disavowel of the transaction, and the punishment of those con- cerned iu it, and to leave Constantinople at the end of that term, if this demand was not com- plied with. Orders were, at the same time given to suspend the building of the new Russian Palace at Constantinople, and a courier was dis- patched to General Benigsen, who is hovering with a large military force on the Turkish frontier — It is supposed, that the Turks will comply with the proposed terms, and deprive the Russian Government of the advantage of this fresh pre- text for the renewal of hostilities. Swedish literature has, it is said, sunk to a low ebb, in consequence of the restraints imposed on the press by the Ordinance of 1812. Among the other benefits conferred on the Swedish nation on the assumption ofthe reins of Government bv Charles XIII. the liberty of the Press was gua- ranteed to them. It is to be hoped, that the personage who is designated his successor, will feel that his own interest would be equally bene- fited with that of the people over whom he is to rule,' by restoring this invaluable privilege to the full extent in which it is enjoyed in this country. The more completely he identifies himself with the renovated liberties of Sweden, the more firmly will bis right of succession be rooted in the hearts of his future subjects. Intelligence was on the 7th inst. received at Vienna, of the death of her Imperial Highness the Archduchess Hermoine, consort of the Arch- duke Palatine of Hungary. This Princess died in child- bed, after being prematurely delivered of a Prince and a Princess. The young Prince is also dead. Enormous Whales, Stranded,— Early on Sa- turday week, as two fishermen were traversing the Sands of the Solway Frith, opposite to tbe Priestside, about four miles within high water mark, they were alarmed by an extraordinary noise, and having directed their steps towards the spot from w hence it proceeded, discovered a whale floundering in the shallow water, and endeavouring in vain, to extricate itself from its perilous situation. It was groaning so loud as to be heard at the distance of nearly a mile.— The fishermen, astonished and terrified, used no means of securing the monster, and the tide soon afterwards flowing covercd it, without, however, affording it sufficient depth to float, when the sea retired, it was found dead, having been probably suffocated, from its being unable, iu that situation, to raise its head above the water so as to inhale air, which is essential to its existence. Assistance being procured, it was quickly cut to pieces and the blubber was carried to shore in carts. The whale seems to have been of the Narwhal or Monodon genus. Its length from the tip of the snout to the fur- flier extremity of the tail, was 36 feet : its height at the shoulder, about eight feet ; and its great- est horizontal thickness, about 4i feet. On the 21 st ult. there came ashore between Staxico and Wick, near the Boathaveu. a whale, measuring 66 feet ft inches in length: he was first observed by the Buckey fishermen who were at the herring fishery, who immediately went up to him, and after attacking him with a sword and a scythe which made no impression on him, they got an axe which they sunk in his head. After various attempts with boat- hooks oars, & c. they succeeded in killing him. They were engaged in this operation nearly 25 hours The carcase was claimed by Sir Benj. Dunbar, as Lord of the Manor, and by tbe Provost of Wick, on the part of the Crown. Owing to this dispute and the roughness of the weather, the sale could not take place before the Tuesday, and was advertised to take place at two o'clock ; but early on tbe Tuesday morning, owing to a heavy gale of wind and a tremendous sea, which broke him to pieces, no sale could take place. The entrails, blubber, & e. were driven ashore, and great part ofthe carcase was seen floating near the spot where he was killed, and his tail and about 14 foot of the carcase were seen at sea. gantly ornamented with two falls of broad rich blond, laid ou almost, plain , each fall is surmounted by a full rouleau of white satin, the fulness of which is confined by pearls twisted round it. The hair is turned up o in Grecque behind; it is paited in front so as to display the whole of the forehead, and disposed in light loose ringlets.

With this dress is worn the Charlotte- spencer, composed of cerulean blue satin; it is tight to the sbepe, the back a moderate breadth, and the waist short. The sleeve is rather wide. The trimming is very elegant. The sleeve is ornamented at the wrist, and on the shoulder, to correspond, bonnet, a la Ninon, composed of French willow. The crown is fancifully ornamented with the same material, cut in small squares, edged with white satin, and turned a little over at the ends. The front is very large; it displays the front hair, which is sim ply- braided across the forehead: it is edged with puffed gauze, disposed in points, and confined by a narrow fold of white satin. A sprig of acacia ornaments it on the left side, and it is finished by white satin strings. French ruff and ruffles of rich lace. Blue or white kid shoes aud gloves, AGRICULTURE, & e. MONTHLY REPORT FOR SEPTEMBER. The lingering harvest occasioned in a great measure by the unequal ripening of the Wheat and soft Corn ci ops is nearly closed in the Home and Midland Coun- ties, except the Beans, a great breadth of which remains abroad. In the Northern Districts most of these crops are still uncut for want of ripening weather. The new Wheat too, hastily got up, and threshed out, have from their cold damp state found an unprofitable market. Many stacks thus run tip in bad condition, having heat- ed, have been taken down. The Barleys that did not plant regularly shew an unequal sample, which is too generally the ease. Oats are a large crop, and in most parts fine in quality: the Fens of Lincoln, Huntingdon and Cambridgeshire have never experienced a larger produce. The Bean, are in most parts found defec- tive, particularly in Kent, where the horse hoeing sys- tem rarely fails: the Bean Reddishes being unusually foul from the wetness ofthe Summer will considerably retard their being sown with Wheat. On the Hills in Gloucestershire and adjoining parts where they sow early the lands, new sown Wheats appear to plant well. Clover seed is not likely to prove a full crop. Potatoes every where rise well." Hops will not average a tenth part of a crop. The Cider Countries of Devon and Herefordshire, & c. are without fruit, except in a few warm garden grounds. The Grass Lands are generally short of feed, but the Turnip and Coleseeds are every where abundant; and Lean Stock of most kinds are in consequence got up in price. Sheep and Lambs at the late Lewes and other Southdown Fairs have advanced full l."> per cent. Cart Horses and Colts are much dearer. The Wool Market has experienced a sudden rise since our last report of ( id. per pound in fine clothing fleeces. Sinithfield having had a short supply or two, has occa- sioned- a brisk demand for prime Beef and Mutton at more money.

A Hamburgh Mail arrived oh Thursday night with Papers to a late date. Their Prussian and Dutch Majesties are stated to have returned to their respective capitals. Prince Oscar of Sweden will, it is said, be declared Viceroy of Norway, on the 7th of next month, at Christiana. The Austrian Consul General in Denmark has notified, that arms and military stores may be freely exported from all parts of the Austrian empire, with the exception, however, of direct consignments to countries in open rebellion against their lawful Sovereigns. This limitation vva6 unnecessary, as we apprehend the Indepen- dents of Spanish America are not silly enough to order direct consignments of such articles for their use from any ofthe European ports. Gibraltar Papers to the 7th ult. arrived on Thursday. The accounts which they bring of the progress of the plague is alarming. The Lieutenant- Governor has received information, that in the Regency of Algiers the pestilence is increasing, the number of deaths between the 12th and 19th of September, having been, in tbe city alone, 150 a day. Every precaution has been taken at Gibraltarto prevent the introduc- tion of the contagion, for which purpose a cen- sus of the population is taking, as necessary to the adoption of a more complete system of arrangemeut, to ward oft' the danger to which the inhabitants are exposed, not only by the appearance of the plague at Algiers, but the prevalence of a disease little less fatal in Italy. We do not hear of any of the Barbary corsairs being at sea. To prevent them from dissemi- nating contagion the Maritime Powers of Eu- rope should have squadrons cruizingin the Me- diterranean, to blockade the Barbarians' ports, and not lo suffer a single vessel of theirs to put to sea during the continuance of the pestilence". Vaccination it appears has made such pro gress at Amsterdam, that out of a population of 200,000 , iu the first quarter of 1817, not one individual was attacked with the small pox. We are sorry to relate a dreadful accident which happened near Kirby- parsonage, Bungay, the residence of the Rev. Mr. Wilson. Two very fine young men, both under 20 years, the Hon Mrs. Keppel, sons of the Earl of Albe- marle went out with their guns, and iu getting through a hedge the coat of the one caught tbe other's trigger, and the whole contents of flu gun lodged in his brother's leg. The youth not wounded rendered his brother every assistance possible, but finding be could not remove him or do him any permanent good fled with the greatest speed for medical aid, which happened most unfortunately to be at a great distance, and, sad to relate, 011 his return with a surgeon he found his brother had bled to death. Thursday morning, about 9 o'clock, as Mr. Castell, an Italian, was walking with his dog in the Green Park, his attention was arrested by a child screaming aud pointing to the water; what the child said he could not understand ; when at length he descried a woman's leg floating, and he immediately plunged in and got hold of her ; but such were the efforts which the woman made to effect her purpose, that be had nearly, perish- ed, when his faithful dog caught him by tbe collar, and gave him sufficient assistance to escape her grasp, and he succeeded in saving her. She proved to be a young woman deranged, who had escaped from her uncle near Drury- lane, and the child, her cousin, followed her in hopes of getting her home. The poor woman was taken to a public- house in Clarges- street, where she now lies, recovering. REDUCTION OF RENTS. The following is an extract of a letter wc have re- ceived fiom a respected Correspondent ( Mr. Folliott), with whose sentiments we perfectly coincide:— " I shall not conclude this letter ( he says) without en- tering 011 a subject, which I do not think irrelevant to it,— I mean the Reduction of Rents. It is one ofthe first consequence to society. Now that the produce of the earth is lowered 00 per cent, how are the farmers to pay their rents, if the landlords do not make them an abatement? I am of opinion that 20 per cent, should be taken off the farms, at tbe least; and surely it is bet- ter to receive the rent with the reduction, than for the landlords to have merely a nominal rent, which they are so frequently disappointed in. I recommend it to the Gentlemenof consequence and property ineachcounty in this kingdom, to sign a Requisition to the respective High Sheriffs, to call a meeting to take this measure into consideration, and at which to pass resolutions to the above effect. It is of vital importance; for lam firmly persuaded that there is not any thing so likely to make men dissatisfied with the existingorder of things as to keep up the present enormous price of land. I consider the farmer a most useful and respectable mem- ber of society, and surely " the labourer is worthy of his hire.— 20th Sept. 1817."—( Chester Courant, Sept/ M.) THE NAVAL ACADEMY AT PORTSMOUTH. Our readers are perhaps aware that this excellent Institution, which has been now established for more than ."> 0 years, and in the bosom of which many a gallant spirit lias imbibed those lessons which have afterwards reflected lustre on the British name, has of late been en- tirely new modelled. Formerly all the students were educated free of expence; this in practice came to be very inconvenient, from the great interest and solici- tation which such an excellent system of professional education naturally called into competition; added to which was the circumstance of its being less necessary, as the candidates were generally the sons of persons of rank and fortune. It is now determined that fifty scholarships only shall be reserved for thesons of Naval Officers gratis, and that the rest of tbe students ( the number of whom is also iimited) shall only be admitted on their parents paying at the rate of 701. per annum for each lad so received. Foreigners have at all times been excluded ; but we understand that a young gen- tleman, a native of Russia, who has had the good fortune tobe patronized by tier Majesty, the Empress of Russia, has very lately, at the high intercession of that illns- tiious personage, been nevertheless, admitted a student ofthe academy, her Majesty having condescended to interest heiself very particularly in his behalf.

HOLMAN.— This Gentleman, whose death was announced in the New York Papers that arrived oh Tuesday, was a nativeof England, and a descendant of Sir John Holman, Bart, of Warkeworth Castle, Ban- bury. He received the early part of his education at Ihe academy, Soho- sqnare, London. In 1780, he cu tered Queen's College, Oxford, and such was the estimation iu which he was held, that he received the honors of the University after he became attached to the theatrical corps. While at school he distinguished himself by his scenic exhibitions, and Garrick, who there witnessed his representation of Hamlet, pro- nounced most favourably of his performance. His first appearance 011 a public stage was in the character of Romeo, at Covent Garden Theatre, in 1781. His re- ception is said to have been in the highest degree flattering, and fully justified the. expectations of his friends. He went to America in 1812, since which time he has uninterruptedly pursued his histrionic career in that country. The abilities of Mr. Holman as an actor are sufficiently declared by his maintaining a powerful rivalship with Kemble ; and his Lord Townley will long be remembered with admiration by thelovers of the. drama. He was distinguished as a Gentleman and a scholar: and by the urbanity of his manuers, and the force of his talents, greatly contributed to enhance the character of his profession. The virtuesof his heart are known to all w ith whom he was in habits of inter- course. The principal of Mr. Holman's writings were — Abroad and at Home ; The Votary of Wealth; What a Blunder; Love Gives the Alarm ; and the Gazette Extra- ordinary. Sevenoaks .. Mereworth..

IT is a fact established by the annual Bills of Mortality that one half of tbe Children born are cut off before attaining Seven Years of Age, and the fruitful source of this mortality is found to exist in that foul state of the Stomach and Bowels which produces the generation of Worms. As the safe restorer of Infantine Health, in this critical state, " Ching's Worm Lozenges," have long held a distinguished reputation: Mild and safe in their operation, suited to every stage of this pe. riod of Life, and infallible in their effect, their character has been sustained by the highest names in rank, re* spectabilitv, and science, from a personal knowledge of their utility in their own families. Many fond and anxious Mothers, who have watched with inexpressible solicitude the dawning days of their Young Offspring, knowing too well the dangers and vicissitudes of that tender age, have successfully had recourse to these Lozenges, andean gratefully testify to their excellence.

They contain farther details ofthe trial ofthe Black Pin conspirators. Monnier, who had been convicted, has made a confession, iu which he states, that just as he was going to execution, lie was told that Contremoulin had disclosed the poject ; upon w hich Monnier con- fessed that Contremoulin had informed him of a plan to change the Government. After other examinations the Sitting was adjourned. Lords Holland and Ellenborough, Serjeant Copley, and Mr. Brougham were present in the Court of Assize. The papers respecting the process at Rhodez were immediately expected. A near relative of Madame Manson is said to have been arrested at Paris, to be produced in Court. Bastille's counsel is coming to Paris. The Prefect of the Gard ( a'Argent) has bad ano- ther Royal audience previous to his departure. The tranquillity of that department we therefore hope is an object of his Majesty's solicitude. The termination of the election of the Deputies was very near, as the number was completed, except for La Creuse, la Lozere, and Herault. The influence of the Presidents and Vice Pre- sidents of the Colleges seems considerable, since there are 34 of them amonc the 59 already re- turned. The spirit of disaffection in the French soldiery still continues. It has lately shewn it- self in the 2d colonial battalion, in garrison at Oleron. The first Council of War of the Ro- chelle Military Division has condemned to death Dandeleux, a serjeant, and Balleydier, a fuzileer, for a conspiracy to revolt by force of arms, and for plotting the overthrow of the State. Eight others of the s& me corps, who wcre implicated - in- these treasonous practices, have been sen- tenced to imprisonments of different durations. An instance has occurred of a dreadful crime in the Indie : One Joseph Sadran has been sen- tenced capitally for poisoning five persons.— This wretch had previously committed four for- geries. His daughter, who was his accomplice, is condemned to compulsory hard labour for life. ELECTION OF LORD MAYOR.

It affords us unaffected pleasure to find that the re- spectable part ofthe Livery of London have at length shewn to the kingdom at. large, how much they despise the paltry attempts which have been made to subvert their rights and privileges, and to entangle their re- spectability with the mixture of rabble and sedition, which has so vainly made an uproar in the support of weakness and imbecility, but which Iras now been most deservedly punished by the decision we Imve this day the pleasure to record in favor of Messrs. Alderman C. Smith, and Alderman Atkins, whose characters casta lustre upon the first commercial City in the World. POLICE INTELLIGENCE. UNION- HALL.— The re- examination of David Owen, charged with cutting and maiming John Jones, Mary Jones, and Mary Barry, having been appointed for Saturday, Mr. Evance, the sitting magistrate dispatched an officer to St. Thomas's Hospital, to make enquires respecting the state of health of the injured parties.— The surgeons reported that Mary Barry, the servant, was rather worse than she had been for several days past; that Mr. Johes was considerably better, but neither wcre yet in a state so give evidence. It was also ascertained tliat Mrs. Jones ( who remains at the lic use in Gibraltar- row) was still in a state too dange- rous to be questioned respecting the melancholy trans- action. It was also reported from the prison in Horse- monger- lane, that Owen was extremely ill, from hurts on his loins and an attack of fever. Under these cir- cumstances the further examination was postponed to 11 future day. Owen asserts that he had no knife in his hand when lie went to Jones's house, as has been stated; that he went with no other intention than to demand papers which belonged to him; that, unfortunately, Jones and his wife were at dinner, and consequently knives were used; and that the assault was begun by Mr. Jones, who inflictcd a wound on his ( Owen's) hand.

Bryant, Greenwich, Kent, stage coach- master. staled that lie lately belonged to a ship, the Duchess of Richmond, of Dublin, bound from Gottenburgh to LONDON, Octobcr 7. Dublin. She sailed from Gottenburgh about a fortnight ago with a cargo of timber aud tar, Three days after they sailed they were heating about in the Baltic in tremendous weather, till at last they got into Wengo Sound, where they remained three days more. The Weather having abated, they set sail again; but they had not been out more than 7 or 8 hours, when it came on to blow from the southward more dreadfully than be- fore. They cut away the foremast and bowsprit, and continued beating about till last Wednesday at three o'clock iu the . morning, when the vessel went on shore 011 the Kentish Knock; between Harwich and Orford- ness. One man and the cabin boy were drowned; but the rest ofthe crew got ashore, though with great diffi- culty. He walked to town, and slept that night on board a smack. He had endeavoured, without success, to get a ship ; and being afraid of falling into bad com- pany, lie now applied for a pass to get home to his friends, who would rig him out again. The Lord Mayor said it would be disgracing the poor fellow to send him home as a vagrant. 1I « therefore gave him some money ( which example was followed by several in the Court), and ordered the keeper of the Compter to furnish the lad with a pair of trowsers, and a pair of shoes, to ena- ble him to walk home. About 0 weeks ago, an unfortunate young girl, of the name of Jones, was brought on a charge of having at- tempted lo drown herself in the Thames. At that time she stated herself to be of respectable parents in Den- bighshire, but having been seduced and deserted, she was reduced to common prostitution, and became dreadfully diseased. She applied to her friends to save her from destruction, but they refused again to countenance her; and being reduced to utter despair, she determined on self- destruction. She was, however, prevented, and the Lord Mayor humanely sent her to the hospital. A day or two ago she was discharged, perfectly cured, and endeavoured to get into the Mag- dalen, but without effect. She had, for a night or two, been obliged lo sleep in the streets, exposed to the in- sults of her former unhappy associates, who called her a Methodist, because she would not return to her former wretched course of life. Under these circumstances she again applied to the Lord Mayor forassistance and relief. His Lordship ordered her to be taken care of in the Compter for the night, and notice given to the ladies of the Guardian Society to visit her next morning. in MAIDSTONE, Oct. 7. HOP INTELLIGENCE.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20. At the Auxiliary Meeting of this Association, Lord Clifton took Ihe Chair. This young Nobleman, who has but just come of age, was received by a numerous assemblage of ladies and gentlemen with repeated de- monstrations of applause. In his address, which was delivered with becoming grace and modesty, he appo- logizcd, for the absence of their illustrious patron the Duke of Sussex, who in consequence, had solicited him to take his place. He looked forward with inexpres- sible satisfaction- to that period now almost arrived, when by the vigour and energy with which this bene- volent object had been pursued by the Society, the Bible would be distributed in a pure and uncontamina- ted state, over the w hole surface of the Globe. That no person who could learn to read, might remain igno- rant or uninlightened upon tbe subject of salvation, as promised them therein, by God's own word and letter of promise so delivered, and that all persons, what soever, and wheresoever, might partake in the Divine blessing of being enabled thus to worship their Creator, from the East to the West, and from the North to the South, as therein revealed to ns in the exemplary Merits and patient suffering of our blessed Redeemer Jesus Christ! Mr. Pearce, the Secretary, read an address most eloquently composed and most appropriate to the oc- casion, which was received with great approbation.— The gentlemen present were, Charles Grant, Esq. East Indian Director, M. P.; Learned Divines and Rev. Gentlemen, as follows: — Dr. Collier, Rev Mr. Althorp, John Dyer, Esq. Rev. Gerard Noel, Rev. Mr. Symonds, Rev. Mr. Kelp, Rev. Mr. Slattery, and the Rev. Mr. Horsham. Each of these gentlemen made long and eloquent speeches, which were received with reiterated bursts of applause. Lord Clifton was unanimously elected Treasurer and President of the Institution ; the Rev. Gerard Noel and Mr. Charles Grant, Vice Presidents. Each returned suitable acknowledgments for the compliments thus passed upon them, and the honour conferred on the occasion.— Thanks were then voted to the. several parties, and particularly to Mr. Hall, millwright, Dart- ford, for the liberal manner in which lie had come for- ward to lend his aid by the gratuitously fitting up in an elegant manner his extensive wheel manufactory. The table was besides amply supplied by Mr. Hall with choice fruits, Se. c. of the season. A subscription was immediately opened, and liberally supported.— The meeting then adjourned at four o'clock each person enjoying. the consolation that he or she had contributed ( in the language of these divines) towards feeding the hungry and clothing the naked, and towards saving their perishing souls. Thursday a board was held at the Admiralty for the admission of disabled and worn out seamen into Green- wich Hospital. On Friday morning one ofthe powder mills, situated at Ore, near Feversham, blew up with a dreadful ex plosion, which was heard and felt many miles round ; three men were unfortunately in the mill at the time, who were blown to pieces in a most melancholy man ner. A few minutes before it happened five men most providentially left the mill, with five barrels of powder, who would otherwise have shared the shocking fate of their companions. A melancholy scene was witnessed a few mornings since, at one of the Bathing Rooms, ai Margate. A gentleman, of a spare form, who regularly went into the sea every morning, was found in the machine in a state of total insensibility; The boy who drove him into deep water, waited until his patience was exhausted, without receiving any reply to the usual inquiry—" May I drive on, Sir?" On reaching the land, the gentleman was found lying naked under the seat. The machine was driven to St. John's- place, and medical assistance was sent for; he was bled, and revived a little, but without effect, for the vital spark was then nearly extinct. What adds to this distressing catastrophe, is the state of his family. The wife has been in frenzy, bordering oil mental distraction, ever since. At the moment the un- fortunate gentleman was brought into the house, a car- riage was waiting at the door to take the family on an excursion round the Island. The deceased was only in his 40th year. On Friday se'nnight, four men and a corporal belong ing to the 67th infantry, at present stationed in Dover Castle, Were escorting three deserters belonging to another regiment, from thence to Canterbury, when one of the three bv his frequent stopping under frivo lous pretences, created a suspicion in the minds of those with whom he was in custody that he wished to effect his escape, which caused him to be more rigidly watch ed; at length, having nearly reached the half- way house, he suddenly stopped opposite a gate on the side ofthe road, which he approached, under pretence of drinking out of a small pond occasioned by the rain, when after leaning over the pond for a minute or two, he suddenly arose leaped over the gate into a field, and ran into an adjoining wood, and would in all probabi- lity have effected his escape had not one ofthe soldiers instantly fired his piece, the ball from which broke his thigh. He was carried to the half- way- house, from whence he was conveyed back to Dover iu a post- chaise. Ships continue to be equipped in the river for the purpose of conveying officers, non- commissioned officers and privates, to aid the Patriots in South America. At present one vessel is quite ready to sail, having on board officers fully equipped, and 200 privates, to form a rifle corps. Another is in a forward state, of prepara- tion, and has appointments for a cavalry regiment COO strong; a third is freighted with the equipments ofa lancers' corps. The officers arc all' men who have scon active service, and arc of every rank, from lieutenant colonels to ensigns.
