AT a MEETING of the Hammermen incorporation of Penh, held in iheir Hall this evening, for the purpose ol taking under consideration the propriety of pre seining a Memorial to the Magistrates and Towil Council of tbis city against that truel, barbarous, and oppressive system of Jarl fees, now exacted in the Jail of Perth, and which cannot be too much deprecated by every ho nest and humane man, thfc Incorporation came to the following resolutions :— 1st, As the Perth Jail was built by subscription, it is a Free Jail, and consequently the property of the subscribers; and that neither the Town, County, or Crown h « s any lawful right to charge, or cau e to be charged, any Jail fees. 2d ' That it is cruel, oppres- ive, and unjust, when an unfortunate man is thrown into Jail, to make htm pay fourpence each night for lodging there. 3d, That it is absurd and . irrational to expect snch fees from any man when' be cannot pay his law lul debts; and that it is the very height of unfeeling cruelty for the Jaib- r to stop and ktu- p the debtor's bed because he cannot pay his demand. - 4th, That it is the unanimous tense of tbe Incorporation that he must be a monster, and no Christian, that could for a moment support or eucoorage such iniquitous exactions, tending to no public eood, and only filling the pockets of a mercenary individual. 5th, That as the Jailer has a Iree house, with a handsome salary, besides the benefit of keeping a public house without paying any 1- cense, and an extensive consumption, with many other perquisites and advantages, the Incorporation are therefore ol opinion, that his stated salary, and other emoluments connected with that situation, are more than adequate lor any Jailer', and that he bath no right to charge Jail fees from tbe already dia-• rressed ; first, because the J- tiler was elected by the Town Council, during Veir j> lem* re, without any specification or mention of Jail fees; and- secondly; because he is the servant of the Town Council, it is the bounden duty of every Public Body in Penh to come forward and put a stop to this- cruel aud oppressive system. This Incorporation are therefore determined to withhold any of the subscription money that they hive subscribed, which may yet remain unpaid; and they call upon every other Public Body aud subscribers to do- the same, . unless the'Town Council remedies tbis evil, which they have so completely in their power to do. NEIL FERGUSON, Deacon. Perth, Oct. 14, 1817. F 0 l l E I G N I N T E L LI G EN C E. FRANCE, P A H I S , Oct. 3— By a royal ordinance officially published in the Moniteur, the two Chambers are directed to assemble on fhe 5th of November next. Two other ordinances appoint a number of military ijite'ndants, suh- militai y inter, dants and adjuncts. It is understood that the Du! » e d'Angouleme, Admiral ol France, is about to inspect the coasts and^ porta of Britanny, and of the western departments. They write from Dijon th. it General Vatix blew cut his brains aitttr tbe close of the election. • T h e m tive of this rash act is not known. Oct. 4 . — A letter from Rhodes, states, that Madame Manson preserves, in prison, the greatest fortitude : s| ie persists in the system of denial, which she appears to have adopted, either from tear or from other motives that cannot be penetrated. It is remarked, that the convicted persons aie much depressed, though resigned to their fate. They have frequent conversations with their priests, which, it is thought, may lead to important disclosures. Oct. 5— Yesterday, in the Court of Assizes, the trial uf the association ol I'Epingle Noire was resumed. The Advocate General replied on the part of the Crown, and in concluding his speech complained of reprehensible expressions used by the advocates for the prisoners. M. Merilhon, on the part of himself and the othei advocates for the pti- . soners, disavowed any improper expressions, observing, that they had. no intention of attacking the administrative authority, their- object merely being to discredit the declarations of an agent produced as a witness. The President said, that tbey had attacked the administration ot the police, by applying the most contemptuous terms to one of its agents. M. Merillion said, the advocates for the prisoners were ready to beat all the reproaches they had merited. The President summed up, and put six questions to the Jury : lst, Whether the prisoners Contrrmotilin, Fonteneau- Dufresoe, Moutard, Duclos, senior, Bsonrt, and Crouzel, were guilty ot tiie conspiracy char^ eo 3 , 2 d , As lo tbe guilt of Duclos, junior, « ' s an acfo. n j lice ?— 3d, Whether the whole of them were guilty of not revealing the conspiracy to the Government ?— 4th, Whether Coiuremoulin, Fonteneau Dufresne, Motitard, and Duclos, seta- r, had since the commencement of the prosecution betn the means of arresting the authors or accomplices of the conspiracy ?— Sth, Whether Foi'teneau Dufresne, and Duel..*, senior, were guilty of having eai ly in 181G worn a symbol of association without the authority of the King ? — 6th, Whether Bonnet arid Crouzel were gu lty of having at the sailie period worn or distributed a similar symbol, unauthorised by the King ? A t the suggestion of M. Merilhon, a 7* th question was put— Whether Duclos, senior, had before the comn- encement of the prosecutiun given information of the conspiracy ? The jury retired at a quarter past four, and re* m'aihed out till hall- past eleven. On their return, tlie foreman read theii Verdict, tiegativiilg the lst, 2d, 3d, 5th, and 6th question;. The i t h and 7tii tliey found to be determined by the Answers given to the others. The nine prisoners Were introduced. The President forbade all signs ot approbation. The clerk read the verdict of the juty, and the President pronounced the acquittal of all the prisoners, who were in consequence discharged. During the year 1816, ibe French imports amounted to 4 2 , 1 5 1 , S l i t . 58c. and the expoits to 20, lC4-, 92til. 21c. The new military intendants and sub- intendanta ' have proceetled to their respective stations. PARIS, Oct. 7-— An equesttian bronze statue of Henry IV. was east yesterday in Paris. This most difficult and hazardous operation Completely succeded. Wis eXc, llency Count Barbe de Maubois presided ; and M. Lemot, statuary, directed tbe process with admirable coolness and presence of mind. The foundery was crowded with persons of distinction, artists, amateurs, See. Among them weie many elegantly dressed females, who patiently femained in their seats from eleven o'clock in the morning till near six in the afternoon. The DucheSi of Angouletne and the Duchess of Bent were present for a short time, but did not wait till the operation was performed. At the tiioment when the red- hot dob s of the furnace were opened, to give a passage to the liquid tire, a profound silence prevailed. M. Quatremere de Quincy is about to publish an account of this process, so in'etesting to the arts. The statue was produced by a single cast, wiih the exception of some ornaments, which were separately done.

' A F A L S E L O V E U I— In the month of June last, three young men went into a coftee- house in the faubourg ot tl. e temple at Paris. Two of them desired to be accommodated with a billiard table ; the mistress of the house, after complying with their wishes, wen: up to her chamber. While the two were engaged in playing their game, their comrade sat down by the side ot the young woman in the bar ; described to her with transpoit the impression which her charms had made upon his heart j praised the beauty ot her person; and complimented ber on the aumber ot- licr slaves she must haVe made. In short, his discourse and attentions had such an effect, that the simple girl could not venture to raise her eyes for a moment. The billiard players taking advantage of this circumstance, contrived to steal two silver vases, finished their play, paid tor the table, and hastily withdrew, together with their perfidious accomplice. Some days after, two ot these gentlemen offered their booty for sale to a woman who kept a silversmith's shop in the Rue de Caire. She asked them some questions respecting those vases, and desired to know where tliey had got them ? " Madame," said they, " we found them among the stones that surround the Louvie.'' " Gentlemen," she replied, " a dealer, as you well know, will never give you the value of them ; an English Gentleman wants to buv such vases as these, and it you chuse, this boy will go and show them to him, you may, in the meat* time, wait here until" he returns." " We have no objection," said they. The little boy then carried th- m to the Commissary of Police. The thieves were at e wards taken into custody. The Court of Assize 1 as sentenced them to six years imprisonment, and to public exposure, S T A T E OF THE H A R V E S T . — A Ciicular has been issued by the Minister of the Interior to the Pre-- fi cts ot the Depaitments on the result of the harvest, which claims more than O'dinary attention. The crops, both in quantity and quality, are stated to have been in genet al such as to leave nothing to desire ; and the conclusion, is hence very reasonably drawn that a great fall in the price of provisions must immediately take place. GERMANY. BERLIN, Sept. 23. — Reports relative to certain changes in our Ministry have been generally circulated for some time ; but we may venture to affirm, that they are utterly without foundation. Other reports, also, of preten'ed disturbances in the Prussian States of insurrectionary movements, & c. are equ illy groundless. Political pamphlets, and discussions upon questions ot public right, have multiplied among us for some time ; the liberty of the press is often abused, and the Government arraigned, as was the Case in a work entitled, The World and the Times, the second volume of which has been published, and in the fourth number of the Satirical Mirror of M. Friederich ; but the Government despises these attacks. It is therefore without any cause that- it" ia alleged we do not enjoy the liberty ol the press, BERLIN, Sept. 25.-— Alter long . discussions, it* which strong arguments were; equally produced on both sides, it is said, that the importation of English meichandize into the Prussian States, is subject to a duty. It is hoped this measure will revive our manufactuiers, and diminish the number of poor, who are become so numerous, the Police cannot sufficiently attend to them. BERLIN, Sept. 27-— On the 24th his Majesty arrived heie from Potsdam, and reviewed the garrison. The laudable example of the town of Hirschberg, in Silesia, had been followed by Schmudeberg, wheie a society has been formed for the promotion of internal industry, by confining themselves entirely to the use of home manufacta: es ; these patriotic societies become more aod more numerous, and the whole proviftce of Silesia, without the interference cf tbe authority of Government, will t w a exclude eve^ y - hin^ foreign f- om its maikets. B E R L I N * Sept. SO.— The Pi u^ ian Colotid Maslenbach i » now in Cuetrin. According to authentic accounts he has been arrested on account ot repeated tiansgrenions of hts duty as Prussian staff officer, upon the report, and at the request of the v. ho'e Council of State, and proceedings accordingly ordered against him. These wiil be directed by a commission appointed for the purpose. At the particular wish of M. V. Massenbach, Lieutenant General Von Dierice is appointed a member of the commission. The inquiry will be solely confined to his military transgressions ; and it is expressly decided that all political views and opinions shall be entitely excluded f. om it. FliANKFORt, Sept. 27.—' The Russian army of the south, commanded by General Benning6en, the dispersion of which had been ordered, is, according to a new arrangement, to remain in its present state until farther orders. FUANKFOHT, Sept. 29.— It is said that the allied Monarchs will tneet in the ensuing yea', to adopt some resolution relative to the army of occupation in France. The| place of meeting has been Buccessivelyfixed at Frankfort and Aix- la Chapelle ; but it DOW appears that it will be at Manheim. After it is tei minated, the Emperor of Russia will go to Warsaw, and from thence to Petersbuigh. Notice to the Captains of Russian skips. HAMBURWH, Sept. SO.— The Russiin imperial Consul General at Hamburgji communicates to the Captains of Russian ships the following official intelligence, which has been received fiom bt Petersblirgh 1— " That Ms Majesty the Emperor, in concert with the allied powers, has already resolved on the most effectual Treasures to put an end to the piracies of the Barbary potyers but that as these negotiations tannot he completed so speedily, and as the seas along the coast of France, Spain, and Portugal, may V " till then infested by their cruisers, it would be advisable, till the conclusion of the negotiati > ns, Fir the Russian ships sailing to those parts to provide themselves with Turkish passports, such as the Porte gives for ships sailing to the Mediterranean. ( Signature, Russian Consul at Hamburgh.)" Travellers ariived here from Lubeck have brought the melancholy intelligence rhat the town of N- ustadt, in Holstein, was almost destroyed last Sunday by a dreadful fire. ' It is stated that very large magazines of corn wete consumed. According to a report of the Swedish Board of Trade, Sweden had, in the beginning of the yeat 1816, only 1036 ships of 62,84- 0 lasts, manned with 9635 seamen. Since 1800 there bad been built in Sweden^ not including Finland and Pomerania, 919 ships. DANTZIC, Sept.

COPENHAGEN, Sept. 2 7 . — & y a decision of his Majesty, the exportation and importation of arms and ammunition to and from our West India possessions, is strictly prohibited. WISBADKK, Sept-. 3 0 . — T h e attempts and ex- • crtions ofthe piopiietors of " Our Gentian manufactories to get rid of the troublesome competition with the English manufactures in the German markets still continue, and tieqeently give rise to the most singular assertions. The tendency to ejtclude foreign competitors, and thu3 to be able to prescribe laws to the consumers, and to sell to them interior goods at a high price with less trouble than could be done without the exclusion of foreigners, is, we know, general in all countries where manufactories exist. It animates shoemakers and tailors in the smallest country town, as well as the proprietor of the greatest manufactory; Nobody ever yet ddubtefi but that this exclusion • of foreigners was advantageous and desirable for the manufacturer and artisan ; and that it is the interest of the manufactuier to persuade us that their interest is the general interest of the State. The arguments which are commonly employed by them to producethis conviction, such as the independence of the State upon foreign countries, the keeping at home all the money which goes abroad for foreign productions, the support of the inhabitants, by employing them in the manufactories of the " Countiy, have ! beet) repeated often enough, and ate heard every where ; but that the consumer of the manufactures longs for the exclusion of foreign articles from the market, that he may pay a higher price for what he wants, this assertion is new ! We find it expressed in plain words, in an article from ElberMd-, in No.. 26+ of the Algemeine Zeitung; The writer, endeavouring to controvert the assertion of the English papers, that a prohibition of the English manufactures in Germany cannot be thought of or executed, because it would be inconsistent with the loteiest ol the German peasantry and of the Government, says " twenty- live millions of men ( including Prussia) look up to their Governments for protection and deliverence in this respect," ( namely, the exclusion of English manufactures from the German markets.) According to this, 25,000,000 Germans require of their Governments to be protected against the liberty of buying better goods at a lower price ; or, in other words, present petitions to their Governments to lay a general tax on consumption for the benefit of some German manufacturing towns, and proprietors of manufactories. As far as our knowledge extends, the general voice of 2 5 millions of people in Germany has not yet expressed itself to this effect. We hear, indeed, now and then, complaints of too heavy direct and indirect taxes in Germany, and many persons may look up to their Governments for protection and deliverance in this respect: but the eyes of the people of Germany hsve not yet been turned ti wards their Governments, as the writer of the letter from Elberfeld affirms, with a petition to pay a new indirect tax for the advantage of our manufacturers. Frankfort German Gazttte, Oct. 2, stated to he quotedfrom a Rhenish. Paper. struggle t e reftleVed as'fuvourable as possible to the national interests ot the moment. The society proposes nothing hostile towards any nttion, or any government ; its sole view is to combat the hostile prohibitions of foreign countries by means adapted to this end, which, however, do not go beyond it, and do not themselves participate in the defects of the prohibitory system ; it has in view but to temper the effects which this system may have itself produced in the interior ; to come to the aid of the national industry, as it now exists ; to relieve the manufacturing class, and to second all the measures which the Government or the Constituted Authorities have taken, or shall take in future, with the same views and intention-.

They invite all their countrymen to follow their example ; and recommend the establishment ot local Associations and Committees to correspond with the central Committee ] This act is da'ed Brussels, 30th Sept. 181".

Intelligencer ofMth Aug.— " Two of the Commissioners ot the Navy ( Commodore Rodgers and Commodore Decatui) are now absent at New York, to make anangenients for the construction ot a line of battle ship and two frigates, the frames and other matetials for which are now collecting there. Similar arrangements, it is expected, will be made by them at Portsmouth, Boston and Philadelphia, before their return, at each of which places a line of battle ship arid a frigate is to be constructed : the line of battle ship at tbis navy yard is progressing rapidly ; the materials for a frigite are collecting, and the 74 at Norfolk has been Commenced. It is confidently believed that the new ships ofthe line wiil carty th'ir guns higher than the Independence, Washington, and Franklin. Frames of line ot battle ships and frigates are cutting in Georgia and Louisiana. Liberal encouragement has been given to men ot capital and enterptise to etigage in this business, and when we compare the number and perfect condition of our ships now in existence, with the decayed, state ol the ships of other nations, and recollect the ease and expedition, with which we can build and equip fleets, independently ot other considerations, we may now ju- tly rank ourselves among the first naval Powers.— There ate strong itasons tor believing, that the 9 ships of the line, 12 frigates, and 3 steam batteries, authorised by law, will be completed tot a less sum than the eight millions appropiiated for the gradual inciease ot the navy. Out navy will then consist of 12 ships of the line, 19 frigates, 8 sloops of war, 4 steam batteiies, and a proportionate number of small vessels, independently ot the fleets on the Lakes. We have now in commission 3 ships ot the line, 3 frigates, 7 sloops of war, and a number of small vessels, employed in auiveying our coast and other services." iWonded. The letters received ihife morning | say, that it is teared all trace of him hai been lost. One of the letters mentions a report) that he has gone to join a worthy associate in the United States. The Journal des Debats notices; with much apparent pleasure, a subsctiption which was entered into lately at Hastings for the relief of some Fiench fishermen, whose boat had been stranded on the Sussex coast. Some English seamen had been relieved at Dieppe not many weeks before. The editor remarks* that it is pleasing to see these instances of reciprocal kindness between two generous nations, formed to esteem each other. A landau, drawn by a pair of zebras, made its appearance lately in Hyde Park. PLYMOUTH.— On Thursday the 2d inst. the Duke and Duchess of Glocester took a survey of the diving bell, when his Royal Highness signified a wish to descend in it, which he did about five o'clock same evening, close to the new woiks where the bell vessel is stationed, accompanied by Mr Smith, the clerk of the woiks, Colonel Cotton, and Mr Currie. They remained under water 15 minutes, and on ascending loud acclamations welcomed hiS Royal Highness's return from the bosom of the deep. In the evening the Earl of St Get main's, Mr and Lady Sarah Lyttleton, General Strickland, Capt. Nash, and Major Hughes, had the honour of dining at Mount Edgcumbe witb their Ro) al Highnesses. On Fiiday, after taking some refreshment at Governor Creyke's, and going over the Royal Hospital, their Royal Highnesses proceeded to the Royal Hotel to Plymouth, to meet the Mayor and corporation of that borough, in their full formalities, with an address, which was presented, and to which their Royal Highnesses made a suitable reply- Sir William Elford then came forward to present the patents of freedom to his Royal Highness, on wh. ch he took occasion to state, that the Mayor, R c o i d e i , Aldermen, Common Council, and Ftee men, in Common Hall assembled, having enterta. led hopes that his Royal Highness would beplease to permit his name to be insetted in the list of the f e e hu gesses of the borough, and having ascertained hit Royal Highness's gracious acquiescence in their wishes, had that day unanimously voted that the tiet'dom of the borough should be presented to Ins Royal Highness by patent, knowing that his R y il Highness had seen and approved of the stupendous wo. k now carrying on in this port under the able superiiitendance of a gentleman present, they ci nceived that, instead of receiving the patent in a box made of any precious metal, it might be mure gratifying to his Royal Highness to have it contained in the box he then held, which was composed oi part ot the first stone laid in the foundation ot that great national work. He begged permission on his own behalf, humbly to add, that having for many years past received various tokens of his Royal Highness's gracious favour and attention, he relt a very great personal pleasure in being the cnannel thtough which this tribute of their lespectfui attachment was to pass into his Royal Highness's hands. His Royal Highness, in reply, expressed his satisfaction at 6uch a mark of Iiis attention, and highly admired the kind ot box in which the patent was conveyed. He should always reflect with pleasure on being a burgess of the ancient coiporation of Plymouth, and the more particulaily as it was placed in his hands by a person whom he had known for many years, and highly esteemed. Their Royal Highnesses were most earnest in their expiessions ot pleasurable feeling at the cordial and hospitable reception they had met with, and quitted the hotel about three o'clock, to look at tne Oieston woiks, where the stone is raised tot the Breakwater, whence they returned to Edgcumbe to dinner ; Sir Byam Martin, Mr Stewart, Mr Seppings, Mr Harris, Mr Pering, Capt.

Patriotic Association for the Support of the National Industry. Principles oj the Association. Liberty is the soul of commerce, and the first want of industry, and the Society has no wishes but for this. A nation which had been Wise or well governed enough to have enjoyed at all times the advantage of the most extensive liberty of commerce, would have profited by the eirors of all others, and its capitals being engaged only in the most favourable manner, it could behold with indifference all its neighbours fetter themselves by prohibitions. But when the prohibitary system has infected for ages universal and national commerce, and has tau » ed immense capitals to be employed in branches of industry whence they cannot be withdrawn w i t h o u t destroying them, the return to liberty can expected to take place within ten or eleven days ; that is, about Saturday or Sunday se'ennight. Letters teceived from St Peteisburgh this morning state, that immense quantities of hemp, fltx, and tallow, cannot be shipped on account of the scaicity of vessels. The Sound List, which is just arrived, mentions the bailing ot from two to three hOndied ships, mostly Btitish, tor the higher ports of the Baltic. They will, no doubt, be immediate ly loaded. The letters mention two or three failures to a considerable amount; they are all Russian houses. The Court of Aldermen have this morning returned Alderman Smith to be Lord Mayor for the ensuing year.— The attempt to set aside the election of Lord Mayor by rotation has effected rather more than the patty who made it could have wished. It must st3nd as an undoubted fact in all time to come, that the tumult ot a Common Hall is no indication ot the sentiments of the Livery of London This has been often suspected, but never 60 completely proved as on the late occasion. A requisition having been presented to the High Sheriff ot the City of Dublin, signed by 34 noblemen and gentlemen of all denominations and political patties, lequesting him to conveuc a meeting of the county to take into consideration an address to his Excellency Earl Whitworth, on his retiring from the Government of Ireland, the High Sheriff appointed a general meeting for that purpose, to be held at Kilmainham on Friday last. The Norwegian brig Bergetta, Capt. Peterson, was on Friday se'ennight wtecked on Cefu Sidan Sands, in Carmarthen bay. She was bound fiom Barcelona tor Stettin, with a cargo of wine, spirits, & c. when the master, losing his reckoning owing to a thick fog, fell into the fatal erior of taking the coast of Devon for that of France, and acted undtr that persuasion. So circumstanced, a violent gale, together with the tide, drove the vessel into the Biistol Channel, and she struck upon the above sands, and in the space of two or three hours went to pieces. The master and crew with great dilliculty got into the boat, and were all happily saved. Notwithstanding tbe greatest exertions on the part of the Officers ot the Customs, supported by several gentlemen and others, acts of plunder were committed to a considerable extent. Ot 166 pipe6 and casks of wine, & c. not above a hundred have been saved 1 Hundreds of men and women were reduced to nearly a state of insensibility through intoxication. The public character at Liverpool, who is implicated in the late nefatious transactions at that Capt. Douglas, weie of the paity DERBYSHIRE RIOTERS. The bill of indictment against the Derbyshire rioteis contains three counts, founded upon two riirteient statutes. The first count, which is for a substantive act of treason, in directly levying war against the King, is upon the statute of 25th Edward III. The second count, which is for conspiiing to depose the King, is to be proved by a tries ot overt acts, five in number, and is founded upon the 36th of George III. ; and the third count, tor conspinng to levy war against the King, in order to compel him by torce to change his measures, is made out by the same overt acts, and is founded upon the same statute as the preceding. 1st Count— Charges that the prisoners, on divers days, between the 9th and 15th June, at the parish of South wingiicld, iu the couuty oi Derby, with a great multitude of false traitors, whose names are unknown, to the number of 500 and more, arrayed, and armed in a warlike manner ( Court), with swoids, pistols, clubs, bludgeons, and ottier weapons, being assembled and gathered together, wickedly, maliciously, and traitorously, did levy — lid make war against our Lord tils King, within thin realm, and being so assembled together, arrayed, and armed against our said Lord the King, did, with great force and violence, parade and inarch in an hostile manner in and through divers villages, places, and public highways, and maliciously and traitorously attempt and endeavour, by force of arms, to subvert and destroy tbe Government and Constitution of this realm as by law established, 2d Count— Charges that the prisoners, with divers other false traitors, did compass, imagine, invent, devise, and intend to deprive and depose our said Lord the King, of and from the style j honour, and kingly name of the Imperial Crown of this realm. Ist Overt Act.-— Maliciously and traitorously assembling, meeting, conspiri ng- and consulting to devise, arrange, and matute plans and means to subvert and destroy the Constitution and Government of this realm as by law established. 2d Overt Act— Maliciously and traitorotislyassembling, meeting, conspiring, consulting, and agreeing to stir up, raise, make, and levy insurrection, rebellion and war against our said Lord the King, within this realm, and to subvert and destroy the constitution, & c. 3d Overt Act.— Maliciously and traitorously purchasing, procuring, prosiding, and having large quantities ol swords, pikes, guns, and pistols, and of gunpowder, leaden bullets, and slugs, with intent thereby to arm and array themselves and others, in order to attack, fight with, kill and destroy the soldiers, troops and forces, of our l. ord the King, and other of his faithful subjects; and to raise, make, and levy insurrection, rebellion, and against the King, and lo subvert and destroy the be only slow and gradual ; the means to promote is to turn the arms of the foreign prohibitory system port, and who is stated to have planned and carried against itself, and wisdom prescribes that this' into execution the extensive frauds in question, has war, constitution, tkc. 4th Overt Act.— Maliciously and traitorously assembling with 500 others, with swords, gnns, pisrols, .

The overt acts in this count are the same as in the Second count. Brussels is now almost tctiicly tJejerledi bf the English, who; aftei raising tlie prices df hcuse- rsnt and almost every article ol consumption to the maximum of England, now find it convenient to rtiove to cheaper quarters, which they find in the towns on the Rhine, in Switzerland, and in Normandy. Caen is tull of English families, and in Boulogne they outnumber the native inhabitants. It is our melancholy duty to record ahdther of those fatal catastrophes that too often occur in the composit on of that destructive agent, gunpowder. About twenty minutes before seven in the morning ot Friday last, the corning house of the gunpowder works, belonging to John Hall, Esq. at Ore, near Faversham, containing about twelve barrels ot powder, blew up with a tremendous explosion, levelling instantly every part of the building to its foundation, and spreading the massy timbers in every direction. At the moment ot the explosion there were three men employed therein, whose bodies were literally blown to pieces, and the scattered fragments of their limbs found at considerable distances from the spot, in a state so mutilated as to defy the power ot description. Their names were, Thomas Wanstall, aged 18 years ; John Robinson, 4- 5, and James Philpot, 24, the latter has left a wite and child to bewail his fate. In this, as in all former instances ot a like nature, no cause can be assigned for the lamentable event, other than the natute ot the process in the corning house, certainly the most dangerous of the manufactoiy ; but in this instance it is the more remarkable, from the machinery having been put in motion by water flowing with a regular current. Had the accident happened ten or twelve minutes sooner, its consequences would have been more fatal, as Mi Johnson, the overseer of the works, and five other persons, were in attendance at the building, removing 10 barrels of powder. The house and mill ot Mr Ashenden, at Oie, received a severe shock from the concussion ot the explosion, and had most of the windows broken ; the windows of several other houses at Ore, we. e also partially fractured ; and the effect was also extended to Faversham ( although a mile distant), where the windows of several houses were similatly injured. The sound o! the explosion was heard in the direction of the wind, which was easterly, for nearly 10 miles. The last accident of this natuie in the vicinity of Faversham, was, on the 16th January, 1810, when the coining house, No. 4, ot the Royal Powder Woiks exploded killing seven men and four horses. On Sunday evening, a boy, about twelve years of age, fell asleep during divine service in St Mary's Church, in Carlisle, and when the congregation retired he was uncor. sciously left theie the whole night! When found next morning he was senseless fiom fright, and he still continues in a state of extreme danger. Should his health be restored, he is not likely to recover his intellects. THE PRINCE REGENT'S COURT. On Fliday at 3 o'clock the Prince Regent held a Court at Carlton House, when the Duke De San Carlos, the 8panish Ambassador, was introduced to his Royal Highness by Lord Viscount Castlereagh, as Principal Secretary for Foreign Affairs, and conducted by Robert Chester, Esq. the Assistant Master of the Ceremonies. His Excellency had a closet audience of the Regent, delivered his credentials, and was most graciously received. Afterwards Chevalier de CumpiiZuno, Molls, A. Corner, MODS, A. Caballero, and Mr J. Salhador, of his Excellency the Duke's Suite, were introduced to the Prince Regent, upon their different appointments to the Embassy. They came to Court in the French Ambassador's carriages, with the servants in the State liveries. The Bai on Humboldt, the Prussian Ambassador, was then introduced by Lord Viscount Castlereagh, and conducted by lloben Chester, E q the Assistant Master of the Ceremonies. Hts Excellency had a closet audience of the Prince Regent, delivered his credentials, aod was most graciously received. M. . louffray, the Baron Bulew, and Count Lusi, were severally introduced to his Royal Highness the Prince Regent, upon their various appointments on the Prussian Embassy. His Excellency and suit came to Court in the carriages I of Prince Esterhazy, the Russian Ambassador, attenaed by the servants in their State liveries. A Geneial Officer in the Pottuguese service, whose name we understood to be Macteagh, was introduced to the Prince Regent by Lord Viscount Sidmouth, upon his return to England, when his Royal Highness was graciously pleased to confer the honour of Knighthood upon hitfo. His Royal Highness held a Pavy Council, which was attended bv— The First I. ord of the Treasury, the Secretaries of State for the Home and Foreign Departments, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the President of the Board of Control, the Treasurer oi the Household, and the Judge Advocate- General. Mr Buller attended as Clerk of the Council. The Judge Advocate- General laid before the Prince the proceedings of some Courts- Mat tial, and took his Royal Highness's commands upon them. Viscount Sidmouth and Viscount Castlereagh had audiences of the Regent. Lord Boston and Sir Wm. Keppel was the Lord and Groom in Waiting. By letters which have reached town to day from Staffordshire, we learn, that the men belonging to the iron foundery of Messrs Jeffrey and Co. had struck work for an advance ot wages. As it is agreed on all hands that the men's wages are too low, and as it is equally manifest that the iron trade is considerably improved of late, we tiust that the fair claims of the workmen will meet due attention from their employe! s. Thefe is a geneial buz to- day throughout the city, that it is in the contemplation ot Government to cause an immediate dissolution of Parliament, In corroboration of this statement, we can affirm, that within these few days, some ot tbe members of the city have been unusually courteous to the Liverymen who happen to come in their way. As far as our inquiries have gone, we ate not enabled to pronounce any thing certain on the subject. A few evenings since, footsteps of persons wete heard in the shrubbery and close adjoining the house of Mrs Marchant, of Tuinham green terrace. M Marchant, jun. went out, armed with a fowlingpiece charged with small shot, to look round the premises, when he observed a man walking towards him in the middle of the garden at the back of the house, in a stooping attitude. He called out several times " Stop, or I fue ?" but without effect, or receiving a reply. He accordingly tired, when he heard the exclamation of " Oh !" which induced him to go into " the house for a light ; he attempted twice with a candle, but the wind being so high he could not keep light. He at length procured a Ianthorn, and returned tothe garden ; but, on searching it, he found the man was gone ; he therefore concluded he merely fancied that he had shot him. However on entering the garden in tbe morning, a • large spot of blood was perceptible in the centre walk, which Was connected by drops of blood with of the itiin have yet been discoveied, » nd no doubt he effected his escape while a light v. as bt ing obtained ; and it is strou^ y suspected he was accompanied by others. Letters from Gibraltar, dated the 18th ulr. have been received in London. They express the greatest conhdence, that from the strict measures enforced by the governor, all contagion will be prevented. The garrison and town continued healthy; A vessel had ai lived from Tunis, which ha'! saiicd the 4th September ; after going through the mlea enforced as to quarantine, tbe letters by her had been delivered ; they mention, that the fever had not appeared in the Tunisian states ; but the reports they brirlg from Algiers and the neiiihbouting towns were truly dieadtul ; the fever, so far from having been impeded, was spreading in every direction, greatly promoted by the filth of the inhabitants, and their infatuation, their religion foibid. ding them from adopting any measures of relief or precaution. The Aarau Journal, in a letter front France, says :—" Notwithstanding all the accounts in the journals, that the army of occupation is not to be dismissed, we know from a good source, that the whale of the Courts interested in this reduction have consented. The particulars we are assured will soon be made known." Letters fiom Cadiz, of ihe 19th ultimo, make r. o allusion whatever to the expedition said, by the Madrid papeis, to be fitting out there. They mention the assemblage of a large body of troops in Es » tremadura and on the frontiers of Portugal, but the writeis expiess themselves perfectly ignorant ot the object.

We have great pleasure in submitting to our readers, who will all shaie it with us, the following statement ot the produce of the revenue for the quarter which ended yesterday, together with a statement of the ptoduce of the corresponding quarter last year.

No traces The above gratifying statement exhibits an improvement beyond the corresponding quarter last year ot nearly one hundred thousand pounds. For we think it scarcely necessary to remind our readers, that though the total receipt of the quarter in I S IS was greater, yet that excess was owiog, as the above account shews, to the operation of taxes which aie now no longer in existence— the War Malt Duty, and the Property. Their produce in the quarter last year was 3,477,516I. which must therefoie, ia the comparative statement of the two quarters, by deducted from the quarter in 1816, and which would leave the total produce at 11,024,710/. being 498,838/. less than the produce of the quarter this year. But then in fairness some arrears of these taxes which have been received in tbis quarter must be deducted ( whicb we have done) from its gtoss produce, and as they amount to 419,072/., they leave the total increase as compared with 1816, at 99,766/. And tbis we repeat is a statement which will afford the highest satisfaction to every man in the countiy. There is indeed a deficiency in the produce of the Excise taxes, and this was to be expected, though w e may add it is a deficiency which will only be temporary— tor last yen the deficiency of the; bailey crop, both in quantity and quality, has materially diminished the malting and brewing of this year, and the more sr, as the present haivest approached, and gave promise of greater abundance and improved quality. In fact, the quarter just closed has given signs of considerable improvement for the last two or three weeks, having been at one time between 8 and 900,000/. behind the correspondent quaiter of last year. Now that the tide is turned, we may expect a much moie marked rise. But with the exception of the Excise, in which a deficiency was, we repeat, to be expected, there is a manifest improvement in alfthe other taxes— a very large increaseindtedin the customs, a decisive proof of the improvement in our commeicial relations. In the stampa there is an increase of 200,000/. In the Assessed Taxes, which aie expected LO fall off, en account of the number of persons gone abroad, theie is an increase of nearly 70,000/. In the Land Tax and Miscellanous Taxes there is also an inciease. A small deficiency there is in the Post- Office revenue for the quarter ; but it is scarcely wotth noticing about 10,000/. Is not this, we will ask, a cheering statement? And it is the moie cheering, because the improvement which has thus began is likely to be progressive. We now proceed to another statement, whick will be found to be equally gratifying— the statement of the receipt of, and charges upon the quarter's revenue under tbe head of Consolidated Fun' 1. The income or leceipt ot the taxes ; o be classed under that head amount this quarter, as the subsequent statement will shew, to 275,311/, beyond the quarter of last year. The surplus revenue, after defraying the charges upon the Consolidated Fund, was io the quarter last year 6 8 7 , 0 2 7 / . ; and in the quarter just expired, 800,000/- ; being an excess beyond the quarter of last year, of 113,267/.

The Commander in Chief is pleased to approve ef General Otficers commanding districts in Great Britain granting leave of absence to officers, and furloughs to non- commissioned officers and soldiers, under the following limitations and restrictions: — The leaves of absence granted under this order, to officers, may commence as soon as the half yearly inspec tions shall have been made. The furloughs granted to non- commissioned officers and soldiers are to commence fronythe 25th of the present month. / h e indigencies granted under this order are to terminate on the 10th of March 1818, when in conformity t6 his Majesty's regulations, all officers and men are to be present with their respective regiments. lo the event of regiments or battalions being in stations not comprised in military districts, the officers commanding are at liberty to use their discretion in granting the indulgence of leave of absence, under the same restrictions, to the officers and men under their command. One field officer, one half of the captains, and one half of the subaltern officers, are always to be present with their regiments. No i fficer ( except in the performance of duty, or for the put pose ol joining his regiment) is to quit the United Kingdom, without having first received the Prince Regent's special permission. The officers employed on the recruiting service, or upon the staff of : he army, are not to be included in the number hereby lued for the constant duty of tile regiment or b . ttalion. The applications for leave, for regimental paymasters and medical officere, are to continue to be made in the mode prescribed in pages 52 and J3 of the General Regulations of the Army. In cast of short leaves of absence being requested by Bdjutauts, riding- masters, quarter- masters, or veterinary cu'gcotis of regiments, it will be necessary, that a special report should be made, as to the mode in which, their duties are to be performed during their absence. The proportion of non- commissioned officers, trumpeters, drummers, and private men, to whom furloughs may be granted, are not to exceed ten per troop or compart v. This order does not apply to the officers and fnen doing duty at the depots of regiments on foreign service.

E D I N B U R G H , OCT. 11, The next sittings of the Jury Court commence on the ' 20th of November, and end upon the 19th of December. Yesterday above 40 recruits, belonging to the 75th regiment, marched from the Castle to Leith, to embark to join the regiment in tbe Ionian islands. Oil Wednesday night, between the hours of 7 and 8 o'clock, as a decent looking woman was passing along the Giassmarket, with a young child ir. her arms, she unfortunately had gone too near a horse which was disposed to bite, consequently the animal got hold of the child's hand, and severed the first joint of the ring finger from its body. The little sufferer must have run a risk, even ot life itsell, had the whole of the hand been included in the ho. se's grasp, more particularly as the bones during childhood are in a state of cartilage. This ought to be a caution to parents and those who take ch.- irge ot youth, and also to point out the propiiety of muzzling such horses as seem disposed to bite. JUVENILE DEPRAVITY.— Last week, the shop oi Mr George Eisdale, baker in Dalkeith, was enteied about 8 o'clock in the evening by a boy not exceeding 12 years of age, who robbed the till of 31. in silver; and although ( by his own confession) he saw the shopkeeper in on adjoining room, had the audacity to creep softly round the counter, and carry eff its contents to an adjoining entry, where it was divided amongst four other accomplices and himself, ai! of whom under hia own age. After examination before the Sheriff, all the boys were dismissed except the actual thief, John Torrance, who was sent to Bridewell for 6 months. Hts Majesty's ship Florida was driven into Cuxhaven the 3d inst. after having parted a cable at Heligoland. The harvest IB mating rapid progress in the neighbourhood of Paisley. Shearer*' wages foi 2 days last week were as high as 3s. per day ; they are now generally 2s. 6d. At the examination of Mr R. Scott's pupils, St Andrew's Square, which took place in August, two gold medals tor the best specimens of writing, were presented j one to Miss Isabella Bruce, and the cither to Mr George Sinclair; also, at a subsequent examination of arithmetic, a gold medal was adjudged to each of the two most expert accountants, namely Miss Georgina Elouis and Master Thomas Paik. We understand that Mr Scott is about to publish some very excellent specimens of penmanship. On the 4- th inst. the University of St Andrew's were pleased to confer the degree of Doctor in Divinity upon the Rev. Peter Barclay, minister of Kettle, File. The thermometer at Moffat on Tuesday evening was as, low as 27°, and on Wednesday morning at 23°, being nine degrees below the freezing point. The oldest inhabitant does not recollect it so low eo early in the season. William Hamilton, who was convicted last Circuit at Ayr, and received sentence of death, for stealing watchei from Mr Wallace's shop ia that t< wri, hat received a respite from the Prince Regent during pleasure. Several copies of the different parts of the Scriptures in the Hindostunee, Sansciit, Bengalee, Mdliratta, Orissa, and Chinese languages, a copy of Colloquies in Bengalee, and a tew of the citcular letters which are primed and circulated in India, have been presented by the reverend Dr Ryland ol Bristol, Secretary to the Baptist Missionary Society, to the libraty belonging to the Students in Divinity, under the reverend Dr Lawson, Selkirk. A vety elegant copy of the Atabtc bible has also been presented to the same libraiy by the reverend Thomas Brown, Dalkeith. There was lately killed at Lauder, by Thomas Frame, butcher there, a year- old lamb, fed in the Castle Paik, by Lord Laudeidale's factor, which weighed, when alive 16 stones, English. The tallow weighed 221b. 8oz.; the lour quarters weighed 23ib. each, Dutch. EXECUTIONS AT GREENOCK. At precisely 20 minutes past two o'clock yesterday af'ernoon, the three wretched men, Bemand and Hugh M'llvogue, and Patrick M'Crystal, condemned at the High Court of Justiciary, for rape and robbery, weie brought from tne Jail to the scaffold, which was erected in front ot the New Church. The procession moved in the tollowing order: A gu. ud of the 4- 0th regiment of foot; the thiee prisoners, with guards, and tht'ee Catholic Clergymen ; the Magistrates and the Sheriff. The square had been previously staked in, and surrounded with a double row ol chains, inside of which was a guard of foot soldiers, and nea er the scaffold a great number of special constables, with their batons. The cavalry ( a| party of the 1st Royal Diagoon Guards) lined the road from the jail to the church. The procession went under the piazzas of the church, and stopped about five minutes, after which the pusoners, with a guard of soldiers and some of the town officers, went out on the scaffold, which was taised as high as the railing in front of the chutch- One of the prisoners made a false step in ascending; but immediately recoverered himself, and wiped, in gieat composure, the dust from his small clothes. One ot the Catholic Clergymen, went from under the pidzzau, and shook hands with them before the drop tell. They behaved with seeming fortituJe and gieat composuie. They weie turned oft at half past two o'clock, and hung till half past three ; when the bodies being taken down and coffined, were carried into the jail. The Glasgow Execu tioner officiated. The elder M'llvogue denied that he was concerned in the tape. The greatest order prevailed duiing the execution. An umber of the inhabitants at Greenock had previously left the town ; and the shops were shut. On Tuesday evening, about nine o'clock, a man lost his life by falling over the quay of Leith harbour, near the entrance of the Wet Dock. It was very dark and low water at the time ; although assistance was immediately given, he was found quite dad. On Tuesday, a fine boy, 18 months old, was drowned in Goibals, Glasgow, The child was left alone by a servant, and, in her absence fell into a tub among some water. Every means was employed to restore animation, but ineffectually. At a late hour on Monday night, three men and a boy, who seem to have been wandering through the streets of Glasgow, with no other object than stealing whatever fell in their way, seeing a chest of tea lying near the shop door ot a merchant, and observing that he w is employed in the back shop, and only a giil attending the fore shop, went in and while one or two of them diverted the attention of the girl by purchasing some trilling articles, the other earned off the chest ot tea unobserved, a strict search was immediately ordered by the magistrates, and the tea was recovered, and the persons, all itinerants, have been apprehended, and committed to prison, charged with the crime. Some days ago, at Aphroine of Skene, Aberdeenshire, a boy about 12 years ot age was sent, with a horse and cart, to bring fiom a neighbouring field a tew remaining sheaves of barley ; but on his not returning, a person went to learn the cause, when the boy was found dead, under one of the cart wheels, which rested on his neck, while the horse remained stationary. Extract of a letter from Montrose, dated October 10:— " There is nothing talked of here ayiresent but our approaching poll election ol Magistates. The Sheriff arrived here on Friday last and sat in the Town Hall on Saturday and Monday, to receive the Burgess tickets of those claiming to vote, who were intered on separate rolls, as voters for the Guild Councillors, or for delegates from the incorporations, to elect the Trades Counsellors. " We have three classes of Guildry here :— 1st, Those who paid the full amount, and taken the regular Burgess oath, consider themselves the only legal Guildry. 2d, The volunteers, who get their tickets as an inducement to them to enlist, are consiuered by the first class as honorary members, and only entitled to the privilege of carrying on trade, without the benefit of extending to their children, or their Having any participation in the fund, or liberty to give a legal vote at the poll. Sd, Naval and military officers, and individuals who have there established new manufactures, or who have in any way contributed what has been considered serviceable to the community, lor which they were remunerated with the Burgess and Guildry ticket. Those having paid are determined to mike a stand, and, if possible estabishthemselves as the only legal Guildry, and have memorialised the Sheriff, pointing out those they deem honorary, to the amount cf 100 ; this memorial is signed by 98 or thereby of the legal Ouildry. The election takes place ou Monday first, in the parish church ; the Sheriffs are to be in the pulpit and precentor's desk j a platform is to be raised equal with it for the clerks. & c. The voters, by twelve or twenty at a time, are to be called up and sworn, and then give in signed* lists. The body of the church to be reserved for the voters, aud the galleries for tile spectators; all are, in the meantime, to be allowed to vote ; but the legality of the votes is not to be decided till the conclusion, and the whole election is not expected to be over till Friday. A few days ago, as a numerous band of reapers, principally inhabiting a parish in the centre of Fifeshire, were returning from labout rather earlier than usual, they observed a field of ripe corn, belonging to the minister of thepaiish, an excellent man, far from affluent, but endeared to the lower ranks by the benevolence of his character. Thinking it quite fit for the sickle they immediately and simultaneously proceeded to work, and actually cut down the whole ofthe grain, and put it in sheafs, without any instructions or expectations of reward. This little trait of unlooked- for attention and kindness from his parishioneis and neighbours, must have been highly gratifying to the feelings of the worthy parson. This accident affords a striking proof too of the fact, thatcven the peasantiy in many paits of Scotland are attentive observers ot the conduct ot the clergy, and that they are not slow to embrace oppoitunities of testifying their respect and gratitude to those who are solicitous about the present and future welfare of their flock. charge Coffeehouse* Edinburgh, 30th curt, at anc r. m. !, theii biutal curiosity, f « such it rrtsy be called, as they seemed to regard us rather as wild beasts than mere strangers ot the same species witb themselves. to decide on it. ,.,, .

MR EDITOR,— The lowei classes of the community, in many districts of the country, lay an unnecessary and oppressive tax on themselves, by the costly and unsuitable style in which they conduct funerals. On these occasions, large crowds are collected, and are lavishlyentertained with bread and spirits. The company teast sometimes for hours together, and often every thing appears in their behaviour but sobiiety and sorrow. I have known a family reduced to distress by one funeral, and the survivors kept in gieat pecuniary embarrassment for a long period. There can be no question, in every view of the case, that this absurd and pernicious fashion should be abolished. In attempting this, however, there may be some difficulty, for it is confirmed by long and very general practice ; and no individual is willing to be the first in departing fiom it, In thesecircumstances, 1 beg to recommend to the attentionoftheclergyand landed proprietors who take an interest in the conduct and comfort of the lower classes, the following scheme, which has been successfully adopted in one countty parish in Perthshire, and which, being highly approved in th'e reighbourhood, is about to be introduced ( mutatis mutandis) into adjoining parishes. The minister and session, with the approbation of the piincipal heiitor, circulated a paper, which they earnestly recommended for geneial signature by the parishioner". In this paper they bind themselves to the following conditions : " 1. That the hour of assembling shall, when convenient, be twelve o'clock, and the hour of /• fling the corpse never later, in that case, than 1 o'clock ; but in all cases, never later than one hour alter the fixed time for assembling. " 2. That no meat nor diink shall be given to the persons assembled, except the offer of a single glass of whisky, either at the door of the house, oris the house where they assemble. " 3. That if any shall break through, or contravene these rules, they bind themselves and their heirs to pay on demand to the kirk- session one guinea, for the use of the pooi ; and that for every instance of the breach of either of the foresail rales." This paper has been generally and most willingly subscribed by the great body of those concerned, and a most desirable tefoim, as to this particular, is now in progress. Permit nie, Mr Editor, to add futther, that while this is a reform most useful to the lower classes, it is one in which I am satisfied, from much in quit y, they ai e predisposed to Concui J but, for obvious reasons it is expedient and essential for persons of a higher class to give any plan for the purpose, the authoiity and influence of their recommendation. I am convinced myself, that much good would follow from such plans becoming general ; and, therefore, I anxiously wish that this ephemeral suggestion may be noticed and acted upon by those whose station and office enable them to attempt its practical adoption. I am, Mr Editor, your obedient servant, PAUPERIS AMICUS. Edinburgh Magazine, Sept. 1817. EMBASSY TO CHINA. ( From Mr Ellis's Narrative.) On the 29th of August, day light found us at the village of Hai teen, near which the house of Sung- ta- jin, one of the principal ministers, intended to be our quarters, is situated ( here, howeve , we did not remain, but were carried directly to Yuenmin- yuen, where the Emperor is at present. The carriage stopped under some trees, and we ourselves were conducted to a small apartment belonging to a range of buildings in a squate ; Mandarins of all buttons were in wailing ; several princes of the blood, distinguished by clear luby buttons and round flowered badges, among them ; the silence, and a certain air of regularity, marked the immediate presence ot the Sovereign. The small apartment, much out of repair, into wbich we were huddled, now witnessed a scene I believe unparalleled in the history of diplomacy. Lord Amherst had scarcely taken his seat, when Chang delivered a message from I'lo ( Koong- yay), informing him that the Emperor wished to see the ambassa dor, his son, and the commissioners immediately. Much surprise was naturally expressed ; the previous arrangement for the 8th of the Chinese month, a period certainly much too eatly for comfort was adverted to, and the utter impossibility of his excellency appearing in his present state of fatigue, inanition and deficiency ot every necessary equipment, was 6trongly urged. Chang was very unwilling to be the bearer of this pnswer, but was finally obliged to consent. During this time the room had filled with spectatois of all ages and ranks, who rudely pressed upon us to gratify Some other messages were inteichanged between . spike, or capstan bar, and will produce a very ex the Koong- yay ami Lord Amherst, who, in addi, j tended and interesting revolution in mechanics. It is tion to the ieaso^ already given, . stated the inde- ' ,° ne of the most impoitaot discovi ties ever made by corutn and irregularity of his appearing without hia | Englishman ; forming a new organ or power credentials. In his reply to tins it was said, that' " ' ' . .. in the proposed audience the Emperpi merely wished to see the ambassador, and had no intention of entering upon business. Lord Aniherst having persisted in expressing the inadmissibility of the proposition, and of ttansmitting through the Koongyay, an humble request to his Imperial Majesty, that he would be giaciously pleased to wait nil tomorrow, Chang and another Mandaiin finally proposed that his Excellency should go over to the' Koong- yay's apartments, from whence a leference might be made to the Empeior. Lord Amherst having alleged bodily illness as one of the reasons for declining the audience, leadily saw. lhat if he went to the Koong- yay, this plea, which, to the Chinese ( though now scarcely admitted), was in general tlie most forcible, would cease to avail him, positively declined compliance: this produced a visit from the Koong- yay, who, too much interested and agitated to heed ceremony, stood by Lord Amherst, and used every argument to induce him to obey the Empeior's commands. Among other topics he used that ot being received with our owp ceremony, using the Chinese woids " ne muntilliee," your own ceremony. All ptoving ineffectual,. with some roughness, but under pretext of frie. idlyrviolence, he laid hands upon Lord Amitei st to take him from the room ; another Mandarin followed his example. His Lordship, with great fiimness and dignity ot manner, shook them off, declaring that nothing but the extremist violence should induce him to quit that room for any other place but the residence assigned to him ; adding, that hp was so overcome by fatigue and bodily illness, as absolutely to require tepose. Lord Amherst further pointed out the gioss insult he had already received in having been exposed to the intrusion and indecent cuuosity of ciowd6, who appealed to view him rather as a wild beast than the representative of a powerful sovereign ; at all events he entreated the Koong- yay to submit his request to his Imperial Majesty, who, he felt confident, would, in consideration pf his illness and fatigue, dispense with his immediate appearance. The Koong yay then pressed Lord Amherst to con. e to his apartments, alleging that they were cooler, more convenient, and more private ; this Lord Amherst declined, saying that he was totally unfit for any place but his own residence. The Koong- yay ha ving failed in his attempt to persuade him, left the room for the purpose ot taking the Empeioi's pleasure upon the subject. Du ing his absence, an elderly man, whose dress and ornaments bespoke him a piince, was particularly inquisitive in his inspection of our persons and mquiiies ; his chief object seemed to be to communicate with Sir George Staunton, as the person who had been with the former embassy ; but Sir George Very prudently avoided any inteicourse with him. It is not easy to describe the feelings of annoyance produced by the conduct of the Chinese, both public and individual ; of the former I shall speak hereafter, of the lattet I can only say, that nothing cwuld be mote disagreeable and indecorous. CAVERN UNDER THE SEA.— In the life of Finow, a Chief in the South Sea Islands* we have the following curious episode :— There is a cavern id the island ol Honga, which can only be entered by diving into the se?., and has no other light than what is reflected from the bottom of the water. A young chief discovered if accidentally while diving after a turtle, and the use which he made of his discovery will probably be sung in more than one European language, so beautifully is it adapted for a tale in verse. There was a trynnnical governor at Vavaoo, against whom one of the chiefs formed a plan ot insunectioftit was betiayed, and the chief, with all his family and kin, was ordered to be destroyed. He had, a beautiful daughter betrothed to a chief of high tank, and she was also included in the sentence. The youth, who had found the Cavern, and had kept the seciet to himself, loved this dansei ; told her the danger in time, and persuaded her to trust herself to him.

The following account is given by a person frors Philadelphia, who states, that most of the particulars he derived from conversation with the Junior Watson', who, fi'oni his notoriety had attracted tlie attention bf se'v'etal of the Democrates and low people of the town. After the disgtaceFul scenes of the 2d Decemberi he remained concealed by his associates for two months, during Which time every means were ttied to alter his appearance ; incisions were made in hia face to give him the look of a person troubled with the scurvy, and cloaths were made, padded with cotton, to give him the appearance cf a corpulent man, his habit was that of a quaker ; his disgui e being considered complete, he took his passage in a vessel named the Venus, bound for Philadelphia; oh their reaching the Downs, she was stopt by a look- out boat, a telegraph message being received that the Venus must be stcpt, information being received that Young Watson was absolutely on board the vessel. Two Bow street officers shortly afteiwards appeared, and strictly investigated every particular respecting the passengers and crew ; the young culprit, on being examined, appeared a middle aged tat man, and behaved rathei rudely to the officers, refusing to give an account of himself; on being questioned his tiame, his answer was, what is that to thee, get thee away ; he was passed : the vessel was then thoroughly searched, but without effect. On the arrival of the vessel at Philadelphia, the Captain was gteatly surprised when he learned that, the old quakei was a young man, and the Very person the search was made for, having assumed his own name on landing.

IMPROVEMENT IN MECHANICS.— Some important experiments have lately been made in Staffordshiie, with a new Machine Power, for the conversion of the motion of two parallel lines into a rotative, called the ConiXrtor-.— The apparatus Was applied to a Crane, in lieu of a winch, the men wotking in a towing posture instead of turning round tlie handles, as in the common way. The advantages deiived from this ingenious ehartge ot the application of man's force became wonderfully obvious and interesting ; the hands of the wotkers passing to and fto in strait lines through the s. tnie extent bf space, in the same time, to perform one revolution of the winch axis, as with the old motion ; so that, mechanically speaking, no time was lost or power gained, as far as regarded the nature o f t h e machine.— But, as to the application of ma>' s foice, the following results fully establish the very gieut importance of this invention.— The men working the crane, sat upon benches opposite to each other, and app ied more force, with much less labour, than with the winch, and thereby heaving a greater weight with more facility ( with this further advantage, the weight was always, through every part of its ascent, te cured from falling by a mtrograde motion, as a part of the apparaius was always pauled, or locked, • while, the other pan Was in moiion ; and when thrown out of gear, by the simple elevation of a lever, tbe weight was lowered with the greatest security aaa dispatch. This apparatus is jjestirg tip In looking around us, we perceive on eve; y hand a material improvement in the condition of society in the manufacturing parts ot the kingdom. The merchant, the manufacturer, and the labouring classes, all partake of the revival of trade, and all the letail dealers, particularly those who vend the secondary necessaries of hie, that is, clothing, alieady feel the improvi tn - nt in a considerabie degree. The dealera in luxuries, who are the first to feel any pubiic depression, are the last to experience the revival of tiade, and with them the alteration for the better has hitherto been rather in anticipation than in any actual augmentation of their returns. In some branches of the cotton trade the waiges ofthe workmen have been very little advanced, while in others, the prices paid tor weaving at the present moment, arehigherby 33 per cent, than they virete six months ago. In thejWio leni, the demands for the generality of goods is still heavy, but in light cloths, andatti. cles of ladies' dress in particular, the sales have been uncommonly animated. In the stuff trade generally, the markets, even in the best of times, have set. dom been better than at present, and if there were not leason to apprehend that the rapid advance in the price of long wools might operate to check the demand for stuffs, the prospect duiing the winter would be highly cheering to all persons engaged in that flourishing branch of our manufacture.

This result, though mainly ascribed to the extraordinary zeal and eloquence o'f their Coonsel, affords, it must be admitted, a satisfactory proof that, even under the Bourbons, Trial by Jury is not a mere nominal privilege which the power and influence ofthe Crown may, at pleasure, render unavailing, but a substantial safeguard to the subject against unjust persecution and oppression. How different was the treatment experienced by State Prisoners who enjoyed the benefit of the Code of Napoteon! By that system of jurisprudence the'tedious and formal procedure of a trial was altogether dispensed with ; and the accused was scarcely charged with his offence, when he was consigned to the hands of the executioner. An article from Berlin, inserted in the Paris Papers, informs us, that after much discussion, the Council of State had Come to the determination of imposing a duty on all British goods imported into the Piussian dominions. In the Netherlands, measures hive been resorted to which indicate a still mote decided hostility t o the Commercial Interests of this country : there, associations have been farmed on the same illiberal principles, as in Sweden, thij object of which isj by means of sumptuary regulations, t) exclude British Manufactures entiiely from the Continent. It woutd seem, however, that thise measures are not ad- opted without a good deal of opp- asitioti, as some of the German Journals endeavour to shew, that they are not only contrary to the interests, but also to the wishes of the great body ot. the people. Indeed it is not to be supposed, that any patriotic resolution, of a commercial tiature, which promises to promote the national wealth, only at the expense of individuil comfort, will have any permanent or extensive influence on tiie taste and habits of the people. A tew of those more particularly concerned may comply with them, and pietend all the while that they are actuated by the puiest patriotism, but the community at large will soon perceive, that their interest is not always identified with that of their own manufacturers, and that these prohibitory regulations will only subject them to unnecessary privations for the benefit of a few individuals. In short, a good and a cheap article will always find a market tor itself, in spite of all the artificial barriers which can be created by a selfish and narrow- minded policy. We need, therefore, b? under no apprehension, that these Fie juish associations will have' any tendency to check the consumption pf the manufactures of this country, while their quality and price combine to recommend them so powerfully to the consumer. The Emperor ALEXANDER has issued an Ukase, declaring that recruits for the Russian Army are not required this season, " on account of the peace, which, by the blessing of the Almighty, pievails in Europe." This document would afford good evidence ofthe pacific intentions of the Czar, were it not known that Rustia hus still on foot au army more than adequate t" o the Peace Establishment, and fully sufficient for any enterprize against Turkey. The Russian Consul General at Hamburgh, has issued an official notice, in that city, announcing that the Emperor has, in concert with the Allied Powers, already resolved on the mosteffectu. il means nf entiiely suppressing the piracies of the Barbary Slates. The scheme, of which His Imperial Majesty is said to be the mover or promoter, has given great satisfaction at Hamburgh. It will piobably tuin out, however, that the execution of the plan ( certainly not the least important part of it,) will devolve upon Great Biitain. On Saturday last, Elizabeth Rutherford, wife of John M'Laggan, Wheel- Wright, Aberfeldy, a very poor man, was delivered of a boy and two girls. One of the girls d ed a lew seconds after birth; the others, with the •" other, are doing well. Died at Crieff, on the 2.1 ' nstant, JOHN MURRAY, Esq. of Ardbennie, Lieutenant til the Royal Navy. A few days ago, James Gardiner, a boy about 5 years of age, and the only son of bis widowed mother, who resides near Murrays- hall, had gone into a shed where several carts were placed with their sh ifts pointing obliquely upwards. The boy, in following his amusement, had climbed to the point ot one ot the shafts ; the balance being thus destieyed, the cart fell suddenly to the ground, and in its tall struck the boy on the head, and fractured his skull in two different places, so that he was killed on the spot. A poor unfortunate woman, residing in the High Street, a little above St Paul's Street, named Jtslinston Scott, who, it seems, had been subject to apoplexy, having been incautiously left alone on the aftei nonn of Sunday last, was found after divine service so dreadfully scorched, that she died in a few minutes afterwards. It is conjectured that, after rising from bed, she had been seized with a fit, and fallen into the fire. On Saturday last, Mr Thomson received by the penny- post, a letter without signature, inclosing a one- pound note, for the Missionary Society. The piotis intentions of the benevolent correspondent shall1 be faithfully complied with. We are happy to understand that the present mode ot assessment for the poor of the city of Perth is about to be abandoned, and some other substituted in its place, mote consonant to law and equity. Indeed, it is astonishing that it should have been tolerated so long, as its operation is obviously arbitrary and oppressive. True,— assessors are appointed by the Magistrates, ol unexceptionable character ; and tbey are bound, by a solemn oath, to fulfil the duties of the office committed to them, with fidelity. But then they, at the same time receive instructions, which, under the same oath, they are requited to observe : the substance of which instructions is, that they shall, on no account, demand from any citizen, however affluent, more than 36s. But they are appointed to raise a sum, which, if theu observe this provision in favour of the rich, they cannot raise, without imposing an unequitable burden on those who are less able to bear it. They accordingly do not pretend to raise it in proportion al rates, regulated by the relative abilities of the citizens,— making 36s. a maximum, and conscientiously observing a descending scale. No ; for it they were thus to act, iri the true spirit and intent ot the oath, the assessment would be deficient by the one half. They therefore demand from every one, whose purse they think can afford it, the said 36s. whether he have 300/. or 30,000/. per aim. As so many respectable inhabitants have for many years acted as sworn assessors, we may presume lhat they have a mode of vindicating the justice and equity ofthe system, which fully satisfies the surmises of conscience. As we are unable to divine what it may be, we take the liberty to say, that the whole is bad, both in principle and in administration. The only objection which we have heard made to the abandonment of it is, that the number of the poor will be increased, and the English poor rates introduced. But the objection is just of that kind, which a person can scarcely attempt to make a serious ieply to, without appearing as profoundly silly as lie who seriously proposes it. Its refutation, therefore, we decline, trusting that the measures which are now going forward to mature a suitable and equitable system, will meet with universal approbation, and quiet the tumultuous fears of those who have no other objection to produce than the increase of poor, and the introduction of English DOOI rates. We fet I peculiar pleasure in noticing tbe formation of another benevolent and highly useful Institution in this City, under the denomination of t h P e r t h s h i r e Religions Trat Society, ( See Advertisement.) the design of which is the circulation of such small, religious and moral tracts, among the lower classes of the community, as may have a tendency to prooiote their improvement in ihe principles and conduct ol the Christian life. By the dissemination of such treatises, a reasonable expectation is entertain ed of counteracting the baleful influence of the vile and often blasphemous trash of tracts and ballads, which the enemies of religion and good morals are studiously hawking through the country, whereby the minds of the thoughtless and flagitious are so lamentably corrupted. Such an Institution, acting with such vivvs, is certain of the approbation and encouragement of all well- wishers of their country ;— as its exertions must eventually prove of the greatest advantage to those who become the objects nf its benevolent attention. This expectation is founded on the consideration of the great benefit which has been derived Ironi the establishment of similar institutions in other places, particularly in the metropolis of our own country. But whilst tbe beneficial consequences arising from the exertions o'f such associations depend in a great measure on the zealous efforts of the members of w hich tlaev are composed, yet their ultimate success must be looked lor, trom the encouragement and fostering care of a benevolent and liberal public, in rendering such efforts most extensively useful. We hope, therefore, to enjoy the satisfaction of observing this infant institution patronized hy the pious and liberal of every denomination of Christians within the city and county ;— especially by parents, heads of families, and promoters of Sabbath • Schools, who feel interested in the religious improvement of their children, servants and scholars, in the pleasing expectation of many of each of these classes deriving much mental benefit from the perusal of the tracts, which it is the inteniibn ef the members of the Perthshire Religious Tract Society to put into circulation! BOROUGH POLITICS. Tbe cause of Borough Reform is advancing apace, and already has made greater progress than could have been anticipated by the most sanguine abettors of municipal freedom, and g- ood government. Resting on Montrose as a centre, it is gradually extending itself to the nort'b, and to the south, without producing, in a single instance, any of those violent revulsions which sometimes attend the removal of old abuses, and never fail to excite prejudices agaihst every species of reform, however pioper or necessary. Every where this measure is discussed with an ardour becoming the object in view, but at the same time with all the sobriety and moderation, by which measures intended to remove abuses and promote the good order ot the community, ought ever to be regulated. The ' only wish, indeed, of those who take an active part in this matter, is to devise some system of borough government, which without derogating from the authority ol " the Magistrate, may duly secure the rights and previlegeu of the citizens. The Borough of Montrose is: already in possession of such a system ; and it will appear, by the following communications, that Dundee has made considerable advances towards the attainment of the same object, which, though it has not been gained without a struggle, was certainly worth contending for. D U N D E E , Oct. 10.— After the long and severe conflicts which have torn and agitated this town, our readers will rejoice with us, at the prospect ot a speedy return of peace, order, and harmony. Provost Riddoch, in the following letter, has expressed Ills readiness to concur with the Burgesses . of Dundee in applying to the King in Council for an alteration in the present set of the burgh, and his wish that the constitution which has just been obtained for Montrose should form the ground work for tl at of Dundee :— Dundee, Oct. 9, 1817. Gentlemen— In consequeilce of a conversation which I had with you and several of my friends to- day, 1 beg to acquaint you, that I have resolved upou calling a Council, to be held on Monday first, for the purpose of submitting to them a proposal for appointing a Committee to meet with the principal inhabitants of Dundee to concert measures for making an application to the King, in Council, to grant a constitution for this borough, similar to ihe constitution lately given to Montrose, it it shall be approved of by the Burgesses of Dundee. I have the honour to be, Gentlemen. Your very obedient servant, ALEX RIDDOCH, P. To David Blair, jun. and David Milne, Etqrs. Dundee. D U N D E E , Oct. 14.— The Town Council met yesterday, when Provost Riddoch, after making a long address in vindication of his conduct, concluded with the following motion :— " That the Council shall call a Meeting of the Burgesses of Dundee, resident within the royalty, or actually carrying on trade there, though resident in the suburbs, to be held in the Steeple Church, on Wednesday the 29th curt, at l l o ' c l o c k forenoon, for appointing a Committee of their number to meet wirh a Committee of the Council, for the purpose of framing a New Set, or Constitution for Dundee, similar to the one lately given to Montrose ; to be afterwards submitted to the Council and Burgesses for their approbation ; and when approved of, that a petition hy the Council, and all parties concerned, shall be forrhwith presented to the King in Council, praying his Majesty to sanction and confirm the alteration so agreed upon." This motion was carried unanimously ; and, as the whole of the Council signed the minutes, every objection and drawing back on their part is precluded. Deacon Ivory moved a vote ot thanks to Provost Riddoch, which was seconded by Deacon Mudie,' and carried unanimously. The Guildry are to meet with the Dean to- morrow, when the books, papers, and funds ate to be delivered ovei to them. POLL ELECT ION AT MONTROSE. By the obliging attention of ;. n intelligent friend we are enabled thus early, to lav before our reader an a c c u r a t e sketch ot the Poll Election which took place on Monday last, and the two following days, at Montrose :— MONTROSE, Oct. 13, 1 8 1 7 . — T h i s day, i n c o n - sequence of previous intimation, the Guildry and Burgesses of this place met in the town hall, for the purpose of electing 15 guild Councillors, in conformity with the new set of the Borough, where the Sheriff* of Forfar, Perth, and Kincardine.- hires, attended, for the purpose of conducting tbe poll ; but, in consequence of the meeting being numerously attended, it was found nccessary to adjouin to the church, where the warrant ot election being read, and other formalities gone through, the Sheriffs then proceeded to call up the electors by thirties, according to picvious arrangement : who, after being duly qualified, each individual pietented a list of 15 persons, proposed by him as members of the guild council, for enrollment, in which the whole of this day was occupied ; and intimation was given that the Sheriffs would be in attendance next morning at nine o'olock, to receive the Convener, Deacon , and a deligate from each of the ieven incorporated tiades ; and to appoint the time when they should return tour representatives in Council ; I'l o'clock the same day was appointed to receive the votes otsuch of the guildry who had not attended the preceding day. Oct. 14.— The business having been dispatched according to the above arrangement, the commissioners proceeded to take into consideration objections which had been before lodged against the votes of several members ot the Guild, called honorary, but. as their tickets of admission ( although not paid for) conferred all the privileges of the Botough, tiieir votes were sustained, if resident, and the objectors being satisfied with the explanation given by tbe commissioners, withdrew their memorial ot opposition. Oct. 15.— At 10 o'clock this forenoon the seven Incorporated Trades attended by appointment, and returned their four representatives in Council '; and at 3 o'clock the poll of the Guild y and Burgesses ( who had not voted tor the Tiades Counselors,) was declared, which stood as lollows :— • Chas.

To the EDITOR of the PERTH COURIER. SIR,— As you h ive given a place in your paper to some eulogiums on the Wet Dock Bill, purposed to be brought before the next Session of Parliament, I hope you will grant tbe same indulgence to the following remarks on its defects : — I highly approve of the object of the bill ; for, by improving our harbour, and deepening the river, we might be made in a great degree independent of Dundee, which has now become a greater object than ever since the additional charges were laid oil for the improvement of tbeir harbour. My objections to the proposed bill are, tbat it does nor go far enough. Why confine it merely to the Wet Duck and Canal leading to it ? Why not make the bill to embrace the navigation of the whole river, and to the confining of its bed within these bounds which are necessary to contain its waters, making a proper allowance for tbe high floods to which it is subject ? Tbe expense of carrying a bill through Parliament is well known to be considerable ;— why not embrace all the objects to be desired at once, though it should nut be practicable to carry them all into immediate execution, in order to save the expense at a future period ?• I beg leave to suggest that the bill should be divided into three heads: 1st, For making the Wet Dock and Canal leading to it. 2d, For deepening and narrowing certain parts of the channel down to Newburgh. 3d, For deepening and narrowing its bed from Newburgh to Dundee— The two first heads are more immediately for the interest of Perth and its neighbourhood; and the latter would vastly benefit the country at large -, for it is manifest, on the slightest inspection, that many thousand acres ol land might be gained from its bed hy embankment ; and one proprietor, more intelligent than the rest, has already shown the example, who will, in a few years, have gained a large addition ta his estate by embaoKing. If the other proprietors, bordering on the river betwixt Perth and Dundee, were to follow the example, they would not only enlarge their estates, but a large and valuable tract of land would be gained, which would considerably augment the annual land produce of the country. It must be admitted that extensive embankment can only be the work of time ; and, therefore, a liberal allowance on that head should be granted : but if, after a certain period of years, any of the proprietors should refuse to co- operate, there is no reason why the country should be deprived of any of its natural advantages, and the navigation of so fine a river impeded either by their inability or contentiousness. A clause should, therefore, be inserted in the hill, that on application to the Sheriff ot the county, any other adventurers, either as individuals or as a body, should be empowered to carry it into effect; and that the land so gained should be secured to them and their heirs for ever. , Some persons have supposed that the proprietors of the fishings would object to any alterations being made in the bed of the river; but as the deepening and narrowing the channel could not hinder the fish from coming up as before, it is not possible that the operation could be injurious to the fishings in general, but, on the contrary, might lessen the expense in particular cases ; aud, if superior advantages were found to- be given to some individuals over others, this might be adjusted by arbiters appointed for the purpose. But in this case, as in all others, public interest should predominate over private ; and what is for the general good would certainly determine the Legislature to embrace the measure. It the second head proposed was to be carried into effect, ihe town of Perth, and the country around, would be highly benefited, although the third should be found to he artended with greater difficulties, and consequently delayed. When the heads os this bill, and that for altering the paving and lighting bill, are prepared, 1 hope Magistrates will have the good sense to publish them through the channel of your newspaper, or by other means of advertisement, that the public ar large may have the opportunity of examining them.—— 1 am yours, & c. M. W. it been Suffered to go foith without any exiLnattoo or contradiction, we have the power to declare, ia the most ample, positiv and authentic manner, that there has not been received by Government any intelligence from Russia which is calculated to produce tiie . slightest uneasiness or alarm. Nay, that so tar from our relations with that Power affording anv degree of apprehension, tLey are as amicable, and as cordial aa the waimest friend to the continuance of peace with her and with all the tebt of the world could desire. Some official accounts have'arrived of the progress of the Insurgents in Upper Peiu and Chili. They are dated as far back as last April and May. The first relates to an attack upon the town of Tarija, the capital of one of the six districts corresponding to the Intendancy ot Potosi. After a severe conflict, in which no quarter was given by the rebels, tt. ey succeeded in obtaining possession ot the place, the royalists being compelled to lay down their aims, and surrender themselves as prisoners of war.' The other action relates to Chili, where the Commandant Heias was also successful against the loyalists, and captured, according to his own account, a considerable quantity of stores, ammunition, & c.— Courier.
