GREEN'S SUDORIFIC PILLS, For the Scurvy, King's Evil, Rheumatic Fever and all Impurities of the Blood. THESE most valuable PILLS are the best and most efficacious remedy ever yet discovered for what their Title expresses, and are now brought to the greatest pelfcction by the Inventor, w ho having used them many years in private practice, with most extraordinary success, is induced to publish it in all parts ofthe Universe. They have, by Hie liclpofGon, cured numbers of persons of the following diseases, namely— the KING'S EVIL and SCURVY, which have a near resemblance of each other, and are both radically cured by the use of these PILLS: the SCROFULA ( which breaks out iu running sores in the legs and other parts of the body), which often continue for life, bnt may now have a safe and effectual cure by these Pills. The Scurvy, although less fatal in its effects, is now one of the most prevailing maladies of the present age, and few persons are entirely free from its attacks, in one form or other. It generally breaks out in blotches, boils, or eruptions on the surface of the skin. Pimpled faces, sore eyes, decay of the teeth, internal ulcers of the bowels, fistulas, piles, and a numerous train of other diseases, proceed from a Scor- butic habit, therefore, let those persons who labour under any of the above grievous afflictions, take a few boxes of these invaluable Pills, and- they will receive a safe and efficacious cure. The following persons have allowed their names to be mentioned, who have been perfectly cured, and are willing to testify the same upon a reference to them : Mr. Taylor, Basket- maker, Maidstone, of the Scurvy. Richard Thunnox, Maidstone, of the Evil. The Daughter of Mrs. Elverton, Maidstone, of St. Vitus' Dance. Mrs. Apps, of Debtling, of the Evil. Henry Paradise, Chatham, of the Evil. John Knowles, Chatham, of the Scurvy. Mrs. White, at the Lord Nelson, Maidstone, of the Scurvy in her Eyes. Samuel Seville, Sittingbourn, of the Evil. Mr. Durtnall, of Thurnham, cured of the Scurvy.

HAMBURGH PAPERS. Francfort, Oct. 4.— The English manufac- tured goods • which were squandered away tor a trifle in the last autumnal fair, have now lisen very considerably, since we have received news that they have advanced 20 per cent, in England CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. The followng is an extract of a letter from an Office* at the Cape of Good Hope:—• '' Letters have been received from Graham's Town, from which it is apparent that the good effect from the late regulations for the protec itself. The same may be said of goods, of almost < tion of colonial property on the frontiers begin every kind ; fine wool is in great demand, as well as woollen clothes and coloured goods.— Under these circumstances the Leipzig fair must turn out very well, particularly since, as letters from that place state, a great many Poles and Greeks are arrived there, who are expected to make large purchases. Colonial goods maintain their priccs, and are expected to rise higher.— The same is the ease with all kinds of necessaries of life without exception. Brandy is not to be had at less than 54or 55 florins. Rum, Cognac, and all descriptions of spiritous liquors in pro- portion. Since the fair, discount has fallen from 5b to 4j percent. Berlin, Oct. i!.— In consequence of a circular letter from the Minister of Police, all Police Officers are ordered to take the strictest care that strolling plavers, puppet- show men, and the Dublin Castle, October ® .— Tire Earl Talbot, who em- barked at Holyhead at five o'clock on \\ cdnesday, the 8th hist., on board his Majesty's yacht tUe William and Mary, arrived in this harbour at one o'clock p. M. this ilay. His Lordship, on his arrival in Dublin, was re- ceived by the Lord Mayor, Aldermen, Sheriffs, and Commons of the city of Dublin. His Lordship, attended by a squadron of Dragoons, proceeded to the Castle, and the Council having assembled at four o'clock, was introduced in form to his Excellency Earl Whitworth, who received him sitting under the canopy of state in the Presence Chamber, from whence a procession was made in the usual state to the Council Chamber. The Council sitting, his Lordship's commission was read, and the oaths being administered to him, his Lordship was Invested with the collar of 1 lie most illustrious Order of St. Patrick, and received the Sword of State from the Earl Whitworth. His Excellency afterwards " repaired to the Presence Chamber," and received the compliments of the Nobility and other persons of dis- tinction upon his safe arrival, and taking upon liim the Government of Ireland. Dublin Castle, October 10.— This day, at three o'clock, the Earl Whitworth, late Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, left the Castle, in order to embark on board his Majesty's yacht the William and Mary, on his return to England. His Excellency Earl Talbot, Lord Lieutenant, and the Earl Whitworth went together from the Castle, ill the state coach, preceded by the leading coaches, in which were the Officers of State, to the South Wall, where the vaeht lay. Tlicy were escorted by a squa- dron of dragoons, and attended by a great number of the nobility and persons of ' distinction, the Lord Mayor, Sheriff's, several of the Aldermen and principal citizens in their carriages, followed by a concourse of people to the waterside. The streets were lined by ihe regiments of infautry on Dublin duty. The Earl Whitworth re- ceived every demonstration of respect in passing through the slreets iVoni the people, who testified. their regard iiv repeated wishes for his welfare and safe return to England. BANKRUPTS. T. Burman, Dewsbury, Yorkshire, woollen- manu- facturer— T. Maish, Bristol, cheese- factor— L. Rourke, Rosemary- lane, Minories, victualler. LONDon, WEDNESDAY, OCT. 15, 1817. Wednesday night were received the Paris Papers of Sunday last. These Journals put an end to the speculations respecting the absence of the Duke de Richelieu, by announcing bis return to Paris, and his transacting business as usual with the King. The Court of Assizes, at Rouen, is said ( but upon what ground is not mentioned) to have de- clared itself incompetent with respect to the case of the pretended Dauphin. Respecting another affair which Iras excited considerable interest iu France, the assassina- tion of M. Fualdes, the new trial of the persons charged with the murder is appointed to be had before the Court of Assizes at Alby. The report is revived in these Journals, that the Government of the United States of America is endeavouring to obtain a naval station in the Mediterranean, and it may be true that some propositions to that effect have been made; but if so there is every reason to believe they have been entirely unsuccessful. In the Madrid articles rumours of a war be- tween Spain and Portugal are again brought for- ward, but they seem chiefly, if not entirely, to have arisen from the removal of the Spanish troops which were stationed in Andalusia, and destined for an expedition to South America, into Estramadura. This measure, it has been already explained, arose from the necessity of relieving Andalusia from the burden of their subsistence. Another report is now added, that a considerable body of Spanish Militia arc to be called out into actual service. This, how- ever, is merely a rumour, but if true, it may probably be capable of as easy an explanation as the march of a corps of regular troops to- wards the frontiers of Portugal. From these Madrid accounts we learn that whilst the produce ofthe harvest is so abundant in Castile, that there being no means of export, the price of grain is ruinously low. There has been a very indifferent harvest in Catalonia, where the price has risen considerably. The people of Castile want a market for their Grain, which the people of Catalonia would be glad to buy, but there is no means of conveying it from one to the other. It seems, however, that at length, in consequence of the urgent demands of the people of Castile, the King has ordered the Council of Castile to take the subject into consideration and report upon it. The Portuguese squadron, with the Princess Royal of Portugal on board, passed the Straits of Gibraltar on the 1st ult. New precautions with regard to quarantine have been ordered by the French Minister of the Interior, in consequence of official intelli- gence having been received of the prevalence of the yellow fever at Guadaloupe, the Havannab, and Charlestown. The Baron De Balk, the Russian Minister at the Court of Brazil, who quitted Rio Janeiro in consequence of some differences which he had with the Brazilian Ministry, is about, it is said, • to return there very shortly. The trial of the Conspirators of Lyons was lo commence yesterday before the Prevotal Court of the Rhone. Letters from Stutgard state, that the Princess Augusta, spouse of Prince Eugene, was delivered on the 2d inst. of a Prince. Letters from Malta announce, that the Eng- • lisli Government has given orders for continuing the basin already commenced in that island, not- withstanding the obstacles which oppose the progress of the work. Several corsairs from Tripoli have appeared - off the coast of Tuscany, The engineer Chevalier, in a letter on the sub- ject of the too early cold which is now expe- rienced, states conjectures as to the probability of a very severe winter— conjectures which, we ' hope, the event will contradict. He says,' Whe- ther we adopt the period of the Lunar Nodes of about 19 years, or admit that memorable winters correspond in different ages, according to the periods of 100 years, and 101 years, or their multimes, according to the observations of M. La Salle, in either case a rigorous winter is to be anticipated. In fact, the period of 19 years will make the present year correspondent with the winter of 1798; and if we refer to the pe- riods of 100 or 101 years, then the winter of like, shall not publicly represent any scenes from the Bible or the Passion of our Saviour. Iu England nosubjcct from the Bible can be brpught upon the Stage. His Majesty has for the present assigned the sum of ten thousand dollars to purchase the necessary decorations aud ward- robe for the Berlin Theatre. Copenhagen, Oct. 4.— In the third quarter, 2,( 514 ships passed the Sound from the North Sea, and 2,549 from the Baltic ; among the latter were, 858 English; 382 Swedish; 285 Prussian; 274 Dutch; 170 Norwegian; 124 Danish ; 52 American: 30" Bremen ; 81 Han- overian ; and 10 Hamburgh vessels. Stockholm, Sept. 30.— According to the Royal Ordinance of 30th April, the sale and use of coffee is prohibited, from to- morrow, in public- houses, as well as at fairs and auctions, iu all Sweden, The use of Champaign, Burgundy, Cape, Tokay, foreign liquors, and beer, ceases at the end of this year. From the Russian Frontiers, Sept. 14.— Gen. Count Benningsen, who commands in chief the Russian Army of Observation on the frontiersof Turkey, has received orders not only not to dimi- nish the strength of this army, which was to be partly dissolved when the differences with Turkey seemed to be removed, but also to raise it imme- diately to 80,000 men effective, by uniting several corps, to provision the frontier fortresses, and, in short, to take every necessary measure to be able, in case of need, immediately to act on the offensive against Turkey. How much the Em- peror is in earnest, in prosecuting this affair with vigour, appears from the circumstance, that in his journey to the southern provinces, he intends to inspect in person the army of Benningsen.-— The Grand Vizier is an enemy to Russia, parti- cularly on account of the public reprimand which he received from the Sultan last Spring, on account of the dilatoriness which he had manifested in settling the differences between Russia and the Porte. He will probably, in concert with Aly Pacha, do all in his power to bring on a rupture with Russia, notwithstanding the pacific sentiments of the Sultan. Tuesday we alluded to the Ukase published in this Paper a short time ago, in wliich the Emperor of Russia says that" recruits for the Russian army and navy, are not required this year on account of the peace, which by the blessing of the Almighty, prevails in Europe." We know besides, on undoubted authority that the best possible understanding, and the most amicable relations exist between England and Russia. It gives us pleasure to perceive proofs that the same harmony prevails between England and the United States. The President in his tour in August last, was addressed by the con slituted authorities at Ogdenbnrgh ; and in re- ply said—" He perfectly agreed that a time of *' peace was the best time to prepare for de- " fence ; but had much pleasure in stating that " the best understanding prevailed between our " Government and that of Great Britain, and " was persuaded we had every reason to " look for a permanent peace." As the Opposition Journals endeavour to alarm the public, almost daily, on account ofthe danger ofa war with the United States, or with Russia, it is with much satisfaction we give the above extract from an American Paper.— Courier. A letter received in town on Wednesday morn- ing from Liverpool, mentions, that great exer- tions are making for the Pariots of Venezuela. A vessel, named the Prince, is shortly to sail from this country, by an iudiiect course, for America, with a cargo of requisites necessary for the equipment ofa military force. The num- ber of British Adventurers is said to increase every hour, notwithstanding the threat of the Spanish Government, of having them treated as brigands, if taken in arms in Spanish South America, and the order issued from our War Office, for depriving British Officers of their Half- pay, who shall serve in the army ofthe In- surgents. It is again stated, that the disputes between Spain and Portugal have been subjected to ihe consideration of the allied Powers, with a view to their adjustment. The King of Portugal is said to be willing to give back Monte- Video to Spain provided he has in return guaranteed to him the security of his trans- Atlantic possessi- ons against the inroads of the Independents of South America. This report seems the more probable, as the troubles existing in Monte- Vi- deo, and the hazard resulting from a disturbed frontier, were among the causes assigned by the Portuguese Government for the oceupation of Monte- Video. / The horrible mania of suicide seems to pre- vail in Hanover. A German Journal states, that in the course of seven weeks 12 persons drowned themselves, 3 blew out their brains, and one strangled himself. A violent storm accompanied by hail, on the 1st instant, destroyed the vines in several Com- munes of the Department of Cher. Talma has been attacked by deafness, but bis Physicians give hopes of his cure. Nineteen houses and 11 barns were destroyed to manifest themselves. " It seems that ou the 28th of last month ( April) sOtue of Habana's people penetrated in- to the Colony, and succeeded in surprising 19 head of cattle belonging to some Hottentots. Information was immediately conveyed to Gra- ham's town of the depredation, when Major Frazer without loss of time, dispatched Lieut. Henry Vereker, of the 83d Regiment, with 100 men, in pursuit of the fugitives. They were easily traced, and it appears had returned into the Caffre land by Trumpeter's Drift. Habana is one of the Caffre Chiefs who did not attend the conference with bis Excellency the Governor, on the Kat River. Lieutenant Vereker pursued the stolen Cattle by the traces to his first kraals, and then demanded restitution. The Caffres hesitated in making it ; he therefore seized an equal number of Caffre cattle to that stolen, and acquainted the Chief with the kraal that his ob- ject was only to take back what had been previ- ously purloined ; he would wait there till the next morning, to give lime to consider the necessity and propriety of restitution. Upon day dawning it was found, that, instead of giv- ing up the stolen cattle, the Caffres were pre- paring to assail bis party and to retake the 19 oxen he had possessed himself of. Lieutenant Vereker, in consequence, commenced his march homeward with the herd he had taken, and was not annoyed by the Caffres, until he came to the head of the Little Rat River, when supposing the situation favourable to their object, they marched upon his party from the surrounding hills, in great numbers making horrible shouts, and throwing their assagays at our men. Lieut. Vereker having formed his party, commenced firing with such effect that 15 Caffres were killed, aud many more wounded ; the remainder immediately dispersed, and the party returned to Graham's- town ; when the nineteen head of cattle were distributed among the Hottentots whose cattle had been stolen. The temperate and firm conduct of Lieutenant Vereker on this occasion is intitlcd to great praise." The following Letter has been sent to Lloyd's: Admiralty Office., Oct. 15, 1817. " SIR.— Having laid before my Lords Com- missioners of the Admiralty yoar letter of this day's date, suggesting, by direction ofthe Com mittee for managing the Affairs of Lloyd's, the expediency of sending out some Ships of War with provisions and water, for the assistance of the homeward- bound trade, which has been prevented, by the late contrary winds, from getting into port, I am commanded by their Lordships to acquaint you, for the information of the Committee, that they have directed the Admirals commanding on the Portsmouth and Plymouth stations to send out immediately any of their disposable cruisers with victuals and water for the assistance of the trade ; directing such vessels as they may send to return, after the wind shall have blown fair for 48 hours, for bringing the trade up Channel. I am, & c. ( Signed) ' « J. W. CROKER. . •'. To Mr. JOHN BENNETT, Jun. Lloyd's." DEATH OF MR. CURRAN. We are concerned to announce the death ot this Gentleman, whadied at Brompton on Wed- nesday morning, where he had lingered some days in a state that precluded the hope of his re- covery. It is highly honourable to his private character that numerous friends visited him du. ring his approaching end, and testified the warmest interest in his welfare. It is needless to enter into ativ animadversions on his public character, or to form an estimate of his powers. They are well known to the Public at large. He was always on the side of Opposition, excepl when what was denominated The Talents' Ad- ministration were in office, and then he w as raised to the situation of Master of the Rolls, leaving his rank of the most popular Pleader of the Irish Bar, a stiuatiori much more emolumeutary, on that occasion. Whatever might be thought of him as a Po- litician, he was at least consistent and sincere, for it may easily be supposed that a man of his talents and popularity might have been thought worthy ofthe patronage of Ministers, who arc generally more anxious to bring over their ene- mies than to reward their friends, but he remain- ed staunch to his Partv. A Thanksgiving after a Good Harvest, BY SIMON PATRICK, D. D. FORMERLY LORD BISHOP OF ELY. We praise thee, O God, who hast opened unto us thy good treasure, and given us rain from Hcavnen, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and glnd- ness. Blessed be God for the plenty with which Ho hath loaded the earth, and for the fairweather He hath sent us, that we might gather it into our barns. He maketli grass to grow upon tiie mountains: He givctli lo the beast his food : and He filloth us with tlio finest of the wheat. He watereth the earth, and rnaketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater. To Him, therefore, be the praise for these and all his benefits. Let all the world be glad and rejoice iu Him, who prepares a table for us, and satisfies our mouths' with good things, and makes our cup to run over. O that our hearts may ever overflow with love and thank- fulness to bim. O thatmemay never forget, liorabiise His goodness; but by a sober, charitable, and pious use of these His blessings, we may be made fit for the continual increase of them till they ail conclude in eternal life, which I most humbly crave for the sake of Jesrts Christ, our blessed Lord and Saviour, to whom with the Father and the Holy Ghost beall honour, and praise, and hearty obedience, both now and evermore. Amen. powers were much admired in Ireland, it may be questioned whether they would have beeucqually successful in ihe English Senate. He always dis- played a powerful imagination, but it was too apt to raise him into such, lofty flights, as at times rendered him rather too poetical for a Legislative Assembly. Yet his wildest excursions, flowing from a sanguine mind, and the exuberance of his feelings, were always marked by genius. Irish Oratory, even of the best description, would hardly suit the taste of our House of Commons, and that of Mr. Grattan is often calculated ra- ther to surprise by its fervour and imagination, than to convince by its reasoning. Such was that of Mr. Curran, and which sometimes hurried him into violence against his political Opponents.— III private life, Mr. Curran possessed great com- panionable excellence, and many of his lion- mots are strongly marked by humour as well as fancy. He was a scholar, and a gentleman. His manners were easy, unaffected, and well- bred. Those who were once his friends always re- mained so, and his society was eagerly courted by all who knew him, however they might diner in their political sentiments. It should be men- tioned to his honour, that he seemed to be iii fluenced by principles that raised him above the narrow feelings of jealousy as to any competitors at the Bar or in the Senate. He entertained the warmest friendship for Mr. Grattan, and was an enthusiastic admirer of that Gentleman. In the Irish Senate he could fear to be eclipsed by no other competiton. Upon the whole, Mr. Curran was one of those Characters which Nature in- tends for distinction, and he did not neglect her gifts, but improved them by attentive cultivatiou- His health had gradually been declining, and his mental powers suffered under the same general decay. He suffered little pain during his last illness, and lie expired in the " calmest and the stillest " manner. He was born in Cork, and was a Student in Trinity College, Dublin. He was married early in life to Miss O'Dell, a Lady whom he chose for her personal merit and the respectability of her connexions, rather than from interested motives. He is said to have closed a life of celebrity In private and public, in the 70th year of his age. Indisposition of the Queen.— Wednesday af- ternoon, about five o'clock, the Queen, accom- Though his oratorical! panied by the Princess Elizabeth, in her coach From the accounts that have been printed by- Order of the House of Commons, it appears that the gross produce of the Revenue of Great Britain for 20 years ( from the 5th of January, 1797, to the 5th of January, 1817) amounted to the enormous sum of twelve hundred and ninety two millions, one. hundred and eighty thousand | jive hundred and ninety two pounds, five shillings and three halfpence sterling— a sum of money that almost baffles the imagina- tion ! This amount was expended in the pro- secution of the war, besides an additional sum of about six hundred millions sterling added to our funded and floating debts. Upon comparing the produce of the Customs for the whole year, ending the Kith of October, 1810, with that of the twelvemonth just con- cluded, we find an improvement in the latter of above Two Millions Sterling, viz.— 1810. 1817. Permanent Customs. £ 4,789,892 £ 5,718,728 Annual Ditto 2,105,455 3,183,339 £ 0,895,347 8,932,007 0,895,347 Improvement in 1817 £ 2,036,720 Add to this that the War Customs in 1810 pro- duced £ 1,777.310, from the whole of which burden our foreign trade is now relieved ; so that on the one hand the trade has manifestly been increased as four to three ; and on the other hand the burthen imposed on it is lightened as four to five. The necessary consequence of this must be ati improvement in the Revenue of Excise, for the briskness of demand abroad is necessary as a preliminary step to give activity to our domestic industry, and of course lo augment internal consumption and revenue. THE HON. HENRY ERSKINE. This Gentleman, who was an elder brother of Lord Erskine, closed an amiable and honour- able life, on the 8th inst. at Ammondell, his seat in Scotland. He was long distinguished at the Scots Bar, and though we wish to avoid all invidious comparisons, yet we cannot help no- ticing, that in general estimation his talents were held to be of a much more solid, and even brilliant character, than those of his Noble Brother, though he was not destined to occupy so high a station in Society. Mr. Erskine was esteemed for his knowledge, and ready wit and humour in private life, as well as for distin- guished knowledge aud acumen in his professi- onal career. He was induced to retire from the Bar some years ago, partly from being above the necessity of public employment, partly from the elevation of the Gentleman who occupies the Post of Lord President, and who had long been bis rival in his professional pursuits, and partly from the growing infirmities of advanced life. He was universally respected, and his death will be a subject of regret to all who had the pleasure of being acquainted with a cha- racter so deservedly elevated by good conduct, extraordinary talents, and great acquisitions.— ( The Sun.) jiuus v « iuuui ivj jmh, i..*.. by fire in the night between the 28th and 27th this year will correspond withthoseof 1015 and ult. at Schweiz, in the arrondissement of Sargue- 1710. I mines. Weather.— The weather at Aberdeen during the last fortnight has been very boisterous; rain, hail, snow and frost, have each had turns, and with considerable violence; so unusually early a commencement of severe and broken weather is very alarming to the farmers in the higher grounds, much of whose crops are yet green, and have been considerably injured. " At Moffat, the thermometer was, on the evening of Tuesday se'nnight, so low as 27 degrees, and last Wednesday morning at 23, being nine degrees below the freezing point. The oldest inhabi- tant of that place does not recollect the mercury to have been so low thus early in the season as in the present year. At Edinburgh, the weather continues very moderate and favoura- ble to the harvest; the mercury jn the ther- mometer at 10 o'clock in the morning, rang- ing for a week past, from 43 to 47 degrees, In London, in the centre of the city, the thermo- meter has, during the same period, been between 50 and 52 degrees at three o'clock p. m. Pedestrianism,— A female, of the name of Esther Crozier, has undertaken to perform 1000 miles in 20 successive days. She is to start , within a week. Sir John M'Mahon's Will.— This has been lodged in the Prerogative Court. The Probate was extracted on the 11th instant, and granted to the Right. Hon. Sir W. M'Mahon, bai t. Master of the Rolls in Ireland ( the brother of the testa- tor) who is appointed the sole executor; it is dated the 20th of April, 1810. The personal property is sworn to be u. nder 90,000/. Twenty thousand pounds are given to the said Sir. W. M'Mahon, and he is also appointed residuary legatee.— To Colonel T. Mahon, Aid- de- Camp to the Prince Regent, is left the sum of 10,000/.; to Susan Elizabeth Wylde, otherwise Mitford, 5000/. ; to T. Marrable, Esq. " a dear and esteemed friend," 2000/. The testator adds to this bequest, " and, wiih my last prayers for the glory and happiness of the best- hearted man in the world, the Prince Regent, I bequeath him, the said T. Marrable, as an invaluable servant." Another bequest to Sir W. Farquhar, " the pre- server of my life for many years," 600 guineas; and to another Medical Attendant 500/. Servants are left a year's wages each ; and to a Page at Carlton House ( the son of Monsieur De Pasquier) to whom Sir J. was godfather, 500/ Mr. Smith, the veteran actor, who was so long a favourite at Drury- lane. is still in good health, and in full possession of his mental faculties, at the commencement of his 88th year. It is a proof of the flourishing state of the country that the applications for Mediterranean Passes have been greater at the Admiralty than ever was known. Fifty pounds per day have been the average receipts for the last month ; previous to that time, AO/, for the same purpose had not been received in the course of a month, and four escorted by a troop of the 10th hussars, passing through Turnham Green, was sud- denly taken ill. The Queen alighted, and v ent into a cottage with the Princess Elizabeth and attendants. Her Majesty remained there for three quarters of an hour, and having recovered front the attack, was assisted lo iier carriage, and proceeded on her journey to Windsor. We understand her Majesty was seized with violent spasms, with which she has lately been afflicted, but we are happy to say that she soon recovered from their effects. One of her Majesty's Phy- sicians was sent for. The Queen's intended Visit to Bath.— Her Majesty will be accompanied by the Princess Elizabeth and the Duke of Clarence. One of the Royal Chaplains will attend her Majesty, and it is believed that Lady Ilchester will be the Lady in waiting.— Sir Henry Halford, M, D. ( by whose advice this Royal visit has been determined on,) will be the physician in attend- ance. Their Royal Highnesses the Prince Re- gent and the Duke of York intend to visit their illustrious mother, during her residence here ; and it is expected that their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester will honour this city with their presence on their return from Weymouth.— Two troops of the 10th Hussars have received orders to attend her Mnjestv, as a guard of honour ; and it is said, that respect- able corps, the North- Somerset yeomanry, will offer their services. National Medals.— The series of Medals in- tended to record the triumphs of this country, during the late war, in which our heroism and perseverance in a glorious cause, accomplished the deliverance of Europe.— Three more of the series have been executed. The first represents our venerable Monarch, in the earlier days of his reign, when his countenance was animated by youth and beauty. The likeness is admitted to be exact. On the reverse there is an allego^ rical representation of Religion, Faith, and con- stancy, so well exemplified by this Country. The second exhibits a head of Britannia, and on the reverse is a figure of Hercules at rest, in- dicating the repose of Europe, by the restora- tion of Peace. The third displays a portrait of Lord Exmouth, and on the reverse appears Neptune subduing a sea Monster, as typical of the naval ascendancy of Great Britain. The triumph over Algiers, though after the war, was so glorious an achievement, that the gallant Hero, by whom it was accomplished, well me- rits a conspicuous place among the records of British Worthies. The whole is executed in the best style of art, and is fully equal in de- sign and workmanship to the famous Napoleon medals, which were only intended to celebrate the Usurper and his Army, but the British Se- ries is to include a Howe, a Duncan, and a St. Vincent, the great props of our national bul- wark The Navy. Elopement and Duel.— On Wednesday morn- ing, Miss S—— R, a young Lady, highly ac- complished, the daughter of a merchant, de- ceased, and whoisentitled, underher father's will, to a considerable fortune when she comes of age, quitted her brother's house, with Whom she re- sided, in the neighbourhood of Kennington, ac- companied by a confidential female servant, and at a few yards distant from her house was met by a gallant son of Mars, Captain C—— N, of the Guards, by whom she was safely seated in a post chaise and four, when they set off full speed on a matrimonial expedition, flattering themselves that all their difficulties were at an end, and that the high road to happiness was open before them. Unfortunately for them, however, thp news of their flight was quickly communicated to the brother, who, being well aware of the attachment, and having obtained information of the road they had taken, lost no time in com- mencing a pursuit, and succeeded in overtaking them at an inn, 25 miles from town, where they were resting in imaginary security. The bro- ther succeeded iu separating the lovers and bringing the Lady back, but not till a warm altercation and a defiance had passed between him and the disappointed hero, who, with the discarded Abigal, returned to London together. Thursday morning a meeting took place be- tween the - Gentlemen, in the fields at the back of Kennington Common, when they exchanged shots, and Mr. S— R received his adversary's ball iu his right shoulder. We are happy to add, the wound is not considered dangerous, and here the matter rests for the present. A curious instance of somnambulism occurred iu Stamford early on Sunday morning. About one o'clock, Mr. John Harwood, glazier, of Paul street, after having retired to rest in good health as usual, found himself in his shirt in the street, a height of about 14 feet; but he has no re- membrance of any dream which preceded this strange adventure, and only once before in his life, that he is aware of, had walked in bis sleep and. then ( about two years ago) he had precipi- tated himself from the same window into the street, luckily without doing himself any serious injury. He lies at present under surgical care, with, it is feared, a badly fractured ancle.— { Leeds Intelligencer, Oct. 13.)' LONDON, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1817 The Paris Papers of Monday last arrived on Thursday, The following are extracts.- " Paris, Oct. 13.— Lieutenant- General Ca- nuel has arrived from Lyons at Paris. " The last accounts from Algiers state, that a Revolution had taken place there, the Dey had been strangled, and succeeded by one of his Mi- nisters. " They write from Avignon, that the produce of the olives will be but scanty. " Private letters from Rhodez state, that Ma- dame Manson still continues inexplicable, though remarkable words frequently escape her, which were more expressive than her confessions. Ma- delaine Bancal, aged between 10 and 11 years, has recognized Madame Manson as the female who was shut up in the Cabinet during the murder. " Berlin, Oct. 1.— It was currently reported here yesterday, that the King has appointed his eldest son, the Prince Royal, Governor- General of the Prussian Grand Duchy of the Rhone, and that this interesting Province will be henceforth administered upon a different system to that of the other Prussian Provinces, that is to say, in a similar manner to the Principality of Neufchatel. " The Count de Tuyll, the New Russian Mini- ster Plenipotentiary to the United States of Ame- rica, has arrived here from Petersburg'), on his way to Philadelphia. " Hague, Oct. 7.— There has been a reference made to the respective Governments regarding the negociations of the Hague, between the Ple- nipotentiaries of the King of the Netherlands and the United States of America, for the con BUENOS AYRES. . hih/ 2. - The surrendry of the enemy's divi- sion that occupied Tarija, and the occupation of that town by our army commanded by the Lieut.- Colonel of Hussars, Don Gregorio Arioz de la Madrid, took place on the 18th of last April, as appears from the official report of the Com- manding Officer, dated on the same day, and inserted in the Buenos Ayres Extraordinary Gazette of the 22d of May. The whole of the Royalist garrison gave themselves up as prisoners of war. The following statement ( already pub- lished) exhibits the force, inns, and warlike stores taken from the Royalist Army in the above town. In order duly to appreciate the fall of Tarija, it is necessary to consider, that it took place at a time when the enemy had ad- vanced more than 40 leagues towards the lower provinces, at which distance Salla is situated and where his principal force was then posted. This proves how insecure his rear must be, and also justifies what has been so repeatedly said, that his difficulties and dangers are imminent in proportion to his distance from the centre of his esources, leaving intermediate districts of im mense extent, on the fidelity and obedience of which he cannot rely, but when he occupies them in a military manner. The dislodgment of the enemy, first from the city of Salta, and soon afterwards from the whole of the province of that name, took place between the 5th and 21st of May, as is proved by the official reports of the General commanding the vanguard, Don Martin Guemes, of the 5th and 21st of the said month. The province of Cinta, also, will very soon be freed from the enemy, as may be deduced from the military expositions and calculations contained in the 22d bulletin HORRIBLE MURDERS. To tiie almost daily and truly alarming perpetration of these dreadful crimes, iu all their dark and detestable varieties, there is now to be added an instance of atro- city never exceeded, and hardly to he equalled. In the night of Tuesday last, ihe 7th of October inst. Thomas Hall, aged about 70 years, and Mary Grant, his Housekeeper, of about the same age, who had many years resided by themselves, in a very lonely cottage, in Theddlethorpe, about 12 miles from Louth, in Lin- colnshire, were most inhumanly murdered by some dia- bolical Monster, or Monsters, in human shape, who en- tered the back wall of the house, by a breach made therein, for the bloody purpose,—- The dead bodies of these unfortunate victims were first discovered about 3 o'clock in the afternoon of Wednesday the 8th instant, by some labourers who expected Hall to meet them, at a previous hour, to assist in some work at a drain, near his house, and who, after waiting beyond the time ap pointed for his attendance, proceeded lo ascertain llie cause of his absence by calling upon him, when, after elusion of a Treaty of Commerce. The negoci-' the army, inserted in the Gazette of 31st May. ations are in consequcnce for the present sus- pended. Antwerp, Oct. 8.— An explosion of five hundred cartridges took place yesterday evening in the citadel here, by which an officer and a soldier were wounded, the former dangerously. " Frankfort, Oct. 8.— We learn from Munich, that on the 4th the Princess Augusta, consort of Prince Eugene, was safely delivered ofa Prince. " Stuttgard, Oct. 7.— A Commission is to be appointed to deliberate upon the arrangements necessary for the execution of the projet of Con- stitution, except what relates to the representa- tive system of the States. " Constantinople, Sept. 8.—' The Sultana Va- lida, mother ofthe Grand Seignior, is dead, after a lingering illness. According to the Mahometan custom, she was interred on the day of her death." The Paris Papers of Tuesday last have also come to hand. They contain no further intelli- gence respecting the death of the Dey of Algiers. An article frotn Vienna states, that the Servian Commandant, who caused the decapitation of Czerney George, is to be surrendered to Russia, in compliance with her demand. The Porte, notwithstanding what we have heard of its armies being disciplined upon the European system, and commanded by foreign officers, may natu- rally be apprehensive as to the issue of a contest with Russia, and therefore has deemed it more expedient to yield than resist. Our opinion re- mains unaltered, as to the right which Russia can have to resent the death of Czerney George, un- less there be circumstances connected with the transaction not yet disclosed. In the relative political situations of Russia and Turkey, con- ciliation is the most prudent course for the lat- ter, especially as it can lose no honor, according to the logic Touchstone, when he proves that the Knight who swore by his honor the pancakes were good was not forsworn, though the pancakes " were naught." With respect to the Commandant of Semlin, however, it. may be observed that a very significant hint is given of his probable escape into the interior of Turkey, instead of a journey fo Siberia. It now appears, according to recent letters from Rhodez, that some important additional testimony will be produced at the next trial of the assassins of M. Fualdes. A MURDER, equal in atrocity to that of the Marrs, was committed near Basington, in Essex, on Saturday se'n night. A poor labouring man of the name of Lowe, had for a number ot years inhabited a cottage near the above- named place; by his industry he was enabled to support his wife and two children, with his aged mo- ther, In a comfortable manner. On Monday fast two of Lowe's fellow workmen called to get a pick- axe they had left there on Saturday night; they knocked at the door, and not receiving any answer, they forced it open, and found an old mastiff in the passage with his head beat to pieces. On entering the room Lowe was on ihe floor with his brains knocked out, and a large wound on his side: in bed lay Mrs. Lowe, with her throat cut from ear to ear, and an infant at her bosom butchered in the same brutal manner! To complete this j horrible scene, the aged mother, who slept in another) bed in the same apartment, with a child two years ol age, shared the same fate; her head, was beat lo pieces so dread fully that not a feature could be discerned. We are happy to state that the murderers are discovered: ROCHESTER, TO BE LET, On Lease for 21 Years, with Immediate Possession. 4 Very good substantial FAMILY HOUSE, L9.. with Garden and Appurtenances, in a quiet and retired part of the Town, out oi'lhe High- street, and at the back of the Market- place ; now or lately in the oc- enpation of Mr. AMbROSE SPONG. Further particulars may be known from Messrs. TWOPENY, HuSSEY, aud LEWIS, Solicitors, Rochester. S'r- All Letters must liuee the postage- paid. News, from a variety of other sources, respecting the Upper Provinces, gives us to understand, that the enemy's situation in lhat quarter is by no means better. Continually harrassed and attacked by our brave patriots on every point, and in every direction, without being able to move out and obtain forage, the several detach- ments of the Royalist army experience the great- est losses and privations. Our parties pene- trate even to the very neighbourhood of Potosi. Near the mines of Siporo, our people lately de- stroyed a party of the enemy, in consequence of which ihe Spanish Commander in Chief, La Serna, dismissed the sanguinary Tacon from the service, and he has already proceeded on to Arequipa, covered with opprobrium. Every thing announces that the whole tpace of country which constituted the former Vice- royalty of Buenos Ayres, will soon be evacuated, and it is more than probable that two- thirds of tiie Royalist army will be destroyed before they can reach the Desaguadero, the limits of the Vice- royalty of Lima. The enormous distance at which that point is situated, the absolute want of every kind of means, the constant at- tacks he experiences in his retreat from our advanced parties, as well as the intermediate provinces, now armed en masse, and the desertion and dispersion to which he is liable, render the situation of the enemy extremely critical. It is not possible to foresee, with any cer- tainty what plans the Spanish General La Serna will adopt, after the defeat of the King's arms in Chili, and the loss of that State to his Master. If was impossible for that Chief not to be sensible of the fatal consequences such an event would bring on the army under his own command, nevertheless, after learning the operation, he came down as far as the province of Salta, which he occupied for a few days. If his ob- ject was fo forage, or provide himself with horses to Undertake his retreat, his success has by no means answered his hopes. If it was to attempt some military operation with a view to counteract the alarm spread by the misfortunes of his countrymen in Chili, and practise delusion on his own army, no one thing has turned out as he expected, and certainly tlie precipitate re- treat lie was since compelled to make, can have inspired no confidence in the Royalist cause, or made its defenders more strenuous in their exertions. through the floors of the upper rooms upon the floors and furniture of those below, they advanced up stairs, into the two bed chambers, in one of which they be- held the appaling spectacle of the mangled corpse of the housekeeper, placed in a sitting posture upon the floor, with her back against the wall, havingon her stays and under petticoat, and, in the other, the still more terrific object of her dead master, lying with his face upon the floor, and having on no apparel but his shirt. Upon the arrival of the Coroner and Jury to view this shocking scene of carnage, on the 9th instant, the bodies, but more particularly that of Mr. Hall, exhi- bited almost every conceivable mark of the most san- guinary barbarity. Many savage blows had been in- flicted upon his head and face; an attempt had been made to cut his throat, in defending which he was deeply stabbed in various parts of both arms, and one of his fingers was nearly severed by a cut; in his shoulders, legs, anil thighs, he had also many deep stabs; but the most furious attack appears to have been upon the trunk of his body, where four deep wounds were dis- covered, one large enough to admit three or four fingers quite through into the stomach, another on tbe left side of the navel, and two more ( the fatal wounds) which penetrated between the ribs, on the left side, through the left lobe of the lungs into the left ventricle of the heart. Dreadful blows had been indicted upon the head and face of the housekeeper, who was also stab- bed quite through one of her arms, and terribly stabbed in various other parts of her body, the fatal stab having been directed through her left nostril into the brain. They have At a late hour en Thursday night, Brussels Papers were received. They are filled with exultation at the proposed '.' annihilation" of our manufactures, not by the Continental sys- tem, nor the " Genius of Napoleon," but by a very important discovery which they have lately- made, that if they can but persuade the people not to use our goods, they will not buy them. Letters arrived on Friday morning from Balti- more, by way of France, dated the 10th ult. They state that the cotton crops had been so much injured in Georgia and South Carolina, by land floods, that they were not expected to yield a quarter of an average crop. The planters of the little that remained 011 hand of las^ year's crop, rofus. a qs o. nu. por pnmid.- The wheat har- vest was most abundant, and wheat was selling at 8| dollars per barrel. A very important communication was made by the Russian Consul to the merchants interested iu the trade to the Baltic. He states, that official intelligence has been transmitted to him from Ihe Swedish Consul General at Algiers, that the Industry, a Russian vessel, taken into that port, had been released by orders of the Dey, who expressed his great displeasure at the capture the pirate had made. The Dey also gave it as a reason for the release, that the vessel was taken for a Swede, The Russian fleet, which, by the accounts frotn Revel of the 11th ult. had been ordered to get to sea, has probably passed the Sound ; for, by accounts just received, pilots were prepared iii the Belt for a Russian squadron of five sail of the line, which was immediately expected to pass on its way to Spain. It is said that Spain has bought the ships, as measures are taken for bringing back the Russian seamen from Cadiz, after they shall have handed over the ships to the Spaniards. Their eventual destination is believed to be to convey troops from Cadiz to South America. An order has lately been made by the Lords of the Treasury, that all persons employed un- der the Board of Works are in future to give in with their estimates an attested account of the prime cost of all the materials to be used in building and in repairs, on which they are to be allowed fifteen per cent, which includes nil f charges whatever. Thursday the Anniversary Dinner of the Sons of Commerce was held at the Old City of Lon- don Tavern; Alderman Atkins, M. P. in the chair. The object of the Institution originally, was to afford relief to those of our brethreu, " The Sons of Commerce," who, by the chance of war, fell into the hands of our former enemy, from whom it is well known they derived nothing but the most grievous privations, added to the suffici- ently poignant evils of captivity. The Society, at the same time, extended its benevolence to tbe families of those in captivity; and it has since still farther enlarged its benevolent and pa- triotic views. We rejoice to receive almost daily proofs of the improving state of the country. Among these the following is not the least striking; — At a meeting of the General Court of Guardians at Norwich on the 7th inst. it appeared, that since Midsummer the number of poor in the workhouse had decreased upwards of 200 ; that tbe applications for out- door allowances were also much decreased ; and that the mulct for the present quarter will be 1500/. less then the last quarter, by which a reduction of Is. ( id. in the pound will take place in the poor- rates. By an Act passed in the last Session of Par- liament, farmers are allowed the liberty to have salt duty free for manuring land ; but this salt is to be sold to them only in a state of brine mixed with ashes, or any other compost they may prefer. Caution to Gate Keepers..— Monday, at Uni- on- Hall, Daniel Dines, Toll Collector, at the Kings Arms, Turnpike- gate, in the parish of St. George, Southwark, was brought out to answer the complaint of James Farquharson, Esq. M. P. for demanding and receiving two shillings for the toll of a carriage and four horses, 011 the morning of tin 27'. h of September, which was one shilling more than his legal demand. Mr. Farquharson, and his servant proved that two shillings were paid to a man at the turnpike gate, acting under the orders of Dines. This person, whose name was Lee, had been discharged from his situation in consequence of the above com- plaint; and Dines was uow ordered to pay the I costs of the prosecution, and return the over- I charge, Thus terminated the existence of those aged, harm- less, and inoffensive people, whose struggles to save their lives against this murderous attack must have been very great; and there is hardly a doubt but the person, or persons, who committed these bloody deeds, mint have been WOUNDED in tbe conflict, particularly as the prongs of a hay- fork, which Hall used to keep ill his bed- room, were found near him newly broken from tbe shaft and covered with blood; but neither tbe shaft nor any other instrument which had been used in the murder, could be discovered. The various stabs in the bodies, seemed to have '" been inflicted by such a knife as butchers generally use in slaughtering cattle; and, from some circumstances, it is supposed tint, when the murders had been completed, tbe delinquents proceeded to rummage the bouse, in search of money and other valuables, as there were found, upon the bed where Hall had slept, a tea- pot containing two ten pound notes, and just by the tea- pot, one other ten pound note, and, scattered upon the floor near the body, seven guineas in gold, and several silver table and tea- spoons; but that, suddenly alarmed by the songs and shouts of some person.', who were returning by Hall's house, from a harvest supper, between 11 and 12 o'clock in the night of tbe minders, tbe barbarians instantly extinguished their light and decamped without their plunder. At present no clue has been found, to trace the per- petrators of this 1111 paralleled outrage upon domestic se- curity, in the silent hour of sleep. The Coroner's In- quest is therefore adjourned; and it is to be hoped that such means will be immediately used as may lead to a speedy detection of the offenders. Every person who regards his ow n life and safety, and who resides at, or in the vicinity of Theddlethorpe, should exert himself in order to discover any one who may have been recently wounded, or whose clothes may have been mark- ed with blood, under suspicions circumstances, aud make particular enquiries as to the cause of such wound or mark. A dog which Mr. Hall kept in his house in the night time, ofa ferocious temper, was found when the disco- verers of Ihe murder entered, licking up the blood from the floor below, and what is remarkable, the dog was not hurt, which induces a suspicion that he either knew the murderers, or by some artifice was quieted by them, otherwise, in all probability, he would have attacked, and either have repelled, or been killed by them. Louth, Oct. 9, 1817. Attrocious Murder and Robbery .— The. Lord Wellington packet, Capt. Cheeseman, which came in, with 25 passengers from Dieppe, on Wednesday, at Brighton, brings an account ofa most horrible assassination, which was perpetrated two miles from Abbeville, a few days ago:— A Mr. and Mrs. Phillips arrived in this town from London about 3 months since, having previously en- gaged a house on lease, near the bottom of Ship- street, which they have since occupied. Mr. Phillips not long ago, departed for France, leaving his wife and children here. At Dieppe, he engaged'a person called Frederick, a Prussian, who had married a French wo- man, and resided at Dieppe, as his interpreter.— Mr. Phillips left Dieppe on Thursday, for Abbeville, where Frederick was to join him, and he did so, bringing with him a small cabriolet or one- horse cart, or chaise, to convey tlicm on their journey. They left Abbeville in the cabriolet together, taking the route for Paris. The next day, the Paris mail coach, which puts up at the hotel at Abbeville, where Mr. Phillips and Frederick stopped, brought a man's hat in which had been picked up on the road, the inside of which was bloody. This excited suspicions on the road; the Police was applied to, and several persons were sent to examine the place where the hat was found, which was not more than two miles from the town. The suspicions in the end were verified. Mr. Phillips's body was found cold and stiff"; the head literally crushed flat, apparently between two stones which lay near him, the surfaces of which were bloody, and contained a portion of his brain. The body was borne to Abbeville; and Frederick appearing again there 011 the following day, he was seized and sent to prison. The subsequent investigation has dis- closed that Frederick returned the cabriolet to Dieppe, where it had been hired, the day- after he had left Ab- beville, the seat of which, and the bottom, were stained with blood. It has also been ascertained, that in his progress to Dieppe, after the assassination, he left several articles of wearing apparel in a bloody con- dition, together with a great coat that belonged to Mr. Phillips, at his father- in law's, between Abbe- ville and Dieppe.— When Mr. Phillips left Dieppe 011 Thursday se'nnight, it is known that he had 100 Louis d'ors and 50 gold Napoleons, & c. in his pockets. Upon searching Frederick, 25 Louis d'ors, two double and one single Napoleons were found upon him. which were believed to have belonged to tlie de- ceased. A violent struggle is supposed to have taken place; for, on the apprehension of Frederick, it was found that the fingers of his left hand were bruised and wounded, and other marks, as of violence, were also seen upon him. Frederick is not unknown at this place; lie is said to he the same person who was ^ lie Steward of the Union packet, but which vessel has not been on this station now for about three years. The remains of the unfortunate Mr. Phillips were interred at Dieppe on Friday last. Mrs. Phillips is confined to her house here by indisposition, and the shocking ca- tastrophe has not yet been revealed to her. Wednesday evening, Mr. Ayton, of the sign of the Dog, at Falkenham, left Woodbridge, on horseback, on his way home. He was discovered a short time after- wards, lying in the road, with a deep wound in the back of his head, in a state of insensibility, and his horse feeding by him. The person who discovered him was passed by a man running, who is suspected to have murdered Ayton.— He was taken to a farm- house, and died next morning. ceased has, we understand, been found been committed for trial. INQUEST.—. On Tuesday last an inquest was taken by Mr. Thomas Shepley, of Selby, one of the Coroners for' the County , before a respectable Jury of Freeholders, over the body of Thomas Riley, a prisoner in the Castle of York, charged with High Treason, who destroyed himself about four o'clock in the morning of the same day, ( when in bed, along with another prisoner, and in company with three persons), by cutting his throat with • in old razor, which he had unfortunately purloined from a fellow prisoner. Upon a full and minute inves- tigation, it was fully proved to the said Coroner and Jury, that at the time of his having committed the fatal deed, he was not of sound mind and understanding, but lunatic and distracted; tbr it appeared, that previ- ous to his being committed to the Castle, on the 4th of July last, he attempted, whilst in confinement at Hnd- dersfield, to hang himself; and that about two months ago he made a second attempt to do t he same in the Castle, when iu bed with another prisoner, but was prevented. And it also further appeared before the said Jury, and under the certificate of the said Coroner, that no blame whatever, in any respect, can be im- puted to any person for neglect or inattention ; but that every necessary precaution had been taken for tbe safe security of the deceased. On Saturday last a most shocking circumstance oc- curred in the village of Wentfield, in Somersetshire. A young man, tbe son of a farmer, had professed an ardent affection for the daughter of a neighbour, whose cir- cumstances were too low to gain the sanction of the youth's parents to an union. The poor girl was pos- sessed of a greater share of discretion than her lover, and refused her consent to a private marriage, con- vinced that it would only be a source of unhappiness ultimately to both. It was in vain that he used every persuasion his passion could devise, she remained reso- lute, and he came to the horrid determination of put- ting an end to the existence of the girl and himself. He succeeded but too well. He possessed himself of :. double- barrelled pistol, and after more fruitless endea- vours to make her swerve from her sense of duty, he hastily took from his pocket tbe pistol and fired, but from what cause is not known it burst, and dreadfully wound- ed the girl as well as shattering his right hand all to pieces. She fell, and, as he thought, probably lifeless: lie then took from Ins pocket a knife, which he con- stantly wore about him, and stabbed himself in many parts of his neck and body. The bodies were found very shortly after the horrible catastrophe, but neither was dead. The girl is expected to recover, but no hopes are cherished of his recovery. Thursday morning a great number of male convicts were conveyed from Newgate to Ringsend Dock, escort- ed bv tke Sheriffs and a squadron of the 4th dragoon guards, and put on board the Atlas, which immediately left the Dock for Cork. Several of the convicts were very refractory, and it was not without force being re- sorted to, that they were compelled to quit the cars, or go down into the hold of the vessel. Four of them have been long known on our quays for their depredations among the shipping. Mr. White, sen. who was con- victed a few months since for forging stamps, was the only one allowed on deck when the ship warped through the Dock- gates. It is scarcely a year since be was seen taking an affectionate farewell of his son, who was con- victed ofa similar offence. On or about the 28th of last month, a young man named Henry Bounaparte Orger, who was in tbe service of Mr. Kidgell, of West Smithfield, absconded with 028i. the property of his employer. Information was given of tlie robbery to Goff, the officer, of Union Hall, who immediately commenced a search and pursuit, from which he returned on Thursday. The officer suc- ceeded in tracing him to Paris, where, at the house of the British Ambassador, Goff found a letter written by Orger to the French Minister of Police, stating that he had been robbed by an Irishman, w ho had lodged in the same house with him, and who had broke open his trunk, and plundered him of 550f. and calling for the aid of the Police to recover his property. Aided by this letter, Goff discovered Orger's lodging, and found that the thief had been plundered as he stated, but previous to Goff's visit he had again absconded. Goff traced him to Havre de Grace, and there learned that only a few hours before Orger had embarked for America. Tuesday night, about twelve o'clock, as a Gentleman residing in Greenfield- street, was walking along High- street, Whitechapel, 011 his way home, 011 his passing by a very dark passage a gang of desperadoes, consist- ing of eight or nine fellows, rushed out upon him; some of them held his arms behind him, whilst the others rifled his pockets of every thing of value they contained, amougst which were a valuable watch and seals. They got clear off.— The same night, about the same hour, a most desperate assault aud robbery was committed on Mr. George Curtis, residing at the Strong Man public- house, East Smithfield, as he was returning to his lodgings, at the end of Nightingale- lane, a gang of fel- lows surrounded him for the purpose of robbing liini, lint he resisted, they beat him in a most unmerciful man- ner, and robbed him of his pocket book, which contain- ed Bank of England notes to the amount of 15(. A few days back at the house of Mr. Smith, in Bun- hill- row, a fellow had the audacity to pick the street door lock and go up stairs into one of the rooms, where he packed up two bundles of the most valuable proper- ty, consisting chiefly of wearing apparel, with which he was departing, when Mrs. Smith, the only person in the house, hearing him coming down stairs, and knowing it could not be any person residing in the house, as iliey were all out, she ran to the door, and seeing him deli- berately walking away, she hastened up stairs, and on seeing the door of one ofthe rooms, which had previ- ously been locked, open, she followed the fellow, cry- ing out " stop thief," till he was stopped, but on her coining up, lie exclaimed to the mob who collected, " this woman cannot live with me or without me." This had the intended effect upon the persons present, and he was permitted again to go away with the property. Mrs. Smith followed up the pursuit, till he was stopped a second time, and then he flung away the bundles. The gentleman who stopped him, notwithstanding his confederates devised every means to convince him that the fellow was a well known cobbler, who was perse- cuted by his wife, insisted upon taking him before the Magistrate, when he underwent an examination, and he was fully committed for trial. EXECUTION.— Friday, B. and H. M'Ilvogue, and P. M'Cristal, tried at the High Court of Justiciary, at Edinburgh, for the crimes of stouthrief, rape, and rob- bery, and sentenced to be executed at Greenock, were accordingly brought forth from the Gaol there to the front of the New Church, at half- past two o'clock, where a platform and gallows were previously erected. They were attended to the scaffold by three Roman Catholic Clergymen, who kindly assisted them in their devotional exercise. The unfortunate men appeared deeply impressed with their unhappy situation, and have left a confession and exhortation behind them to their fellow men. Although strongly affected, they advanced to the front of the platform with a bold and firm step, and after the executioner had adjusted the ropes round their'necks, tliey cordially shook hands with each other, and were immediately afterwards launch- ed into eternity. After being suspended about an hour, the bodies were lowered down into coffins and taken back to the gaol, for tbe purpose of being given to their friends tor interment.

We have received some important communi- cations respecting the state of the dispute be- tween Spain and Portugal, occasioned by the Brazilian Government having seized on Monte Video. A packet arrived on Saturday express from Lisbon, with dispatches for the British Government; she set sail from Lisbon on the ry next day after her arrival from England. Though we do not learn that any information on the business has transpired through the channel of the British Government. We subjoin an ex- tract from one letter on the subject, w hich is as as follows :—" I trust I shall not mislead you when I tell you that the Spaniards have invaded us in three divisions, and are rapidly advancing. They have with some policy waited until our troops have been reduced in numbers, and our people out of humour. The Regency, we learn, in a bustle, but the public, of course, are gnorant of what is going on." Another letter goes even so far as to say," That the three divi- sions of the Spaniards consist of 15,000 men each, and that 9000 of the troops were pushing on for Elvas." The latter communication was received by the house of a great importer of wines and spirits in the vicinity of St. Mary's Hill. We must confess we have some doubts of the Spanish Government being able to em- ploy so large a disposable force.— Englishman.

Monday last the whole of the British troops forming the right wing of the Army of Occupa- tion in France, consisting of six complete regi- ments, with a detachment of artillery belonging to the guards, and a Congreve rocket brigade, were reviewed by tie Duke of Wellington, on the plains near St. Omer's The fine condition of the men, and the beauty of the horses, exciteil general admiration. After the review, bis Grace returned to bis head- quarters at Monte St. Marie, and the troops returned to their cantonments Accounts from Lisbon of the 2d inst. slate that all vessels from England and Scotland are compelled to perform a quarantine of ten days and those from Ireland a quarantine of 20 davs. Letters arrived on Friday from Baltimore by- way of France, dated the 11th tilt. They state that the cotton crops had been so much injured in Georgia aud South Carolina by land floods, that they were not expected lo yield a quarter of an average crop. The holders of the little that remained on hand of'last year's crop refused 33 cents per pound. The w heat harvest was most abundant, and wheat was selling at 8A dollars per barrel. All kinds of British manu- factures, and particularly cottons were in brisk demand. The following is an extract from a letter writ- ten by Colonel Ouseley, dated Peruambuco, 29th July, 1017 :—" The brig Calliope, from Messina, for Pernambuco, R. Goodwin, master, ran aground yesterday evening near the bar, and was lost. Fortunately, however, the crew and greater part of the cargo were saved by the in- defatigable exertions of the Governor, who in- stantly put the troops under arms, and repaired in person to the spot, where he assisted from five o'clock in the evening till twelve'at night often up to his chin in water, and in danger of being dashed to pieces by the surf. When pressed to quit his most fatiguing and perilous situation, ' No,' said the Captain General, ' Britons never failed their friends in the breach; and there is some difference between wading in blood and salt water. Can I forget Salamanca, Roderigo, Badajoz, Vittoria, St. Sebastian? No; I shall never leave an Englishman in his distress.' This reply redoubled every exertion, and had the happiest effects request your attention while I state the evidence in this case, and suggest tho observations that occur to me; and, in Ariler to remove from your minds any appre- hension that may have been excited ofthe Court inter- fering with your province, I have to say that it is as far from the intention of any of us to encroach on your province, as it can have beeufrotn the intention of any ofthe Counsel who have addressed you. You are to judge from the evidence applied to tlie case, according to the law of the case, as laid down by the best autho- rities. Impartiality is yourduty, and it is a duty which I am confident you will exercise. If you think the evi- dence affords proof of the crime charged, you will find the prisoner gnilty ; if, on the other hand, you find tiie evidence insufficient, yon will acquit the prisoner; and if that should be the result, none can rejoice more than I, assured as I am that you will judge according to the evidence. The Learned Judge afterstating the differ, cnt charges in the indictment, then read the evidence very fully. He remarked that the atrocious murder which took place was not treason, but it was for them to say what was the objectof such atrocious conduct. He. at last concluded a charge of twohours thus: This, gentlemen, is the evidence. That there was an insur- rection is clear; that there was a large rising, and that more were to join in Nottingham Forest is quite clear. It is equally clear that the persons assembled thus were armed. There was then force and violence. Was this violent and forcible rising calculated to accomplish any private object, or to revenge any private quarrel; or was it calculated and intended to alter the government and to bring about a revolution ? The low situation in life of the persons engaged in this insurrection is no excuse. A crime is not less a crime because the cri minal is poor. If there could be no prospect of suc- cess, that is no excuse, because the crime consists in the intention and not in the adequacy ofthe means. The question for you is, was the rising calculated to'alter the government, to overturn the laws, and to cause a revolution ? You have the evidence before you, and it says that it Was declared from time to time that there could be no good w ithout an overturn of the Govern- ment, that the Parliament must be pulled down, and similar expressions. If you believe this evidence, you are bound by the oath yon have taken to find the pri- soner gnilty. If, ou the other hand, you can lay your hands on your hearts, and believe, and are satisfied, that the object was private or personal, then you will nOt find him guilty. I am persuaded you will give every attention, and exercise the most perfect integrity. All consequences that may result you are to leave out of view, and to regard only strict justice, and a just verdict according to the law in the face of God and your country. The Jury retired, atid in 20 minutes returned with a verdict, . finding Jeremiah Brandreth Guilty of High ' Treason, and that he had no funds or tenements, goods or chattels, when the crime was committed. The Court was excessively crowded, and the most profound silence prevailed while the verdict was given in and recorded. The prisoner seemed quite unmoved, and even indif- ferent. The Chief Baron asked the Attorney- Gcneaal whe- ther he could say it was probable that any other trial could be gone through to- day, as otherwise it would be a hardship for the Jury to be, confined during the Sunday. The Attorney General conceived that it was even impossible to finish any other trial this day, and pro- posed, with Mr. Cross's consent, lo adjourn till Monday. Mr. Cross assented.

At 12 o'clock this day the other two Judges, Mr. Justice Dallas and Mr. Justice Holroyd, arrived. The High Sheriff, in a state carriage and four, attended by a great number of javelin- men on foot, and accompanied by the Mayor and a large body ofthe county gentlemen on horseback, left the town about 11 o'clock, for the purpose of meeting the Judges. As soon as they met, the Judges alighted from their travelling carriages, and entered the Sheriff's coach; aod the whole procession then inarched into the town, preceded by the usual sound of trumpets. The pro- cession stopped at the Judges' lodgings, where their Lordships remained an hour together; and at one o'clock precisely went to hear divine service at the parish church of All Saints. The Sheriff's Chaplain preached a sermon on the text, " Woe to them that think evil good, and good evil."

Reverend Divine re- plied, that it was to be attributed to the moral and re- ligious improvement of the people, as well as their being frequently visited and relieved by the district commit- tees of the soup and other charitable societies, who were actively engaged on the very day of the disturb- ance in their walks of christian love and benevolence, and not only found most of these poor distressed per- sons at home, but many of them reading that. Book of consolation and support which had been put into their bands by the Bible Associations. Mr. White added, that HE knew this to be the fact, having heard the Rev. Gentleman mention thecircuuistanceat a meeting where he was present. We the more readily give place to this correction in order to prevent any charge of falsehood being made by the opposers of the Bible Society, to the represen- tations of those gentlemen who come forward to address the public at the aiinualmeetings. On Sunday last, at 0 o'clock in the evening, the first anniversary of the Banning Branch Bible Association was held at the Bull Inn. The Chair was taken by James Ellis, esq. whoopened the meeting by observing, " Providence had so abundantly blessed him in Ins crops this year, that he had nothing to regret, but his own inability to fill the chair:" lie then made some very appropriate remarks oil the value of the Bible. The Report w as then presented, upwards of £ 13. had been collected, and near 20 Books had been circulated, leav- ing £ 7. in hand. The Chairman, as an encouragement, to indigent subscribers, promised to every poor family resident in Banning, subscribing within five shillings of what was sufficient to purchase a Bible, he would make good the deficiency. At our Fair on Friday last, there was a good supply of Horses and Cattle, wliich were sold in general at very tolerable prices; and altho' the weather was unfavou- rable, there was a considerable assemblage of visitors, and PICKPOCKETS, the latter of whom were disap- pointed in their expectations by the vigilance of the MAYOR, who occasioned notices to be distributed throughout the town, to warn all strangers to be careful ofthe expected innovations 011 their property. Hops experienced an uncommon variation of price in the course of the day, and met with veiy ready sale from £ 18 to £ 22 10s. before dinner; and after that time, up- wards ot 200 Bags were sold ut £ 25 per cwt. and Pockets at a proportionate price. On Wednesday night last or early on Thursday morn- ing, a grey gelding was stolen from out of a lay- field, in the Parish of Boxley, belonging to Mr. Thos. Kemsley. — See Advertisement. The public feeling has been much excited in this neighbourhood during the last week, in consequence of hand- bills stating, that an old man by the name of Wil- liam Brown, a farmer, at Headcorn, had been missing for several days, and that he was last seen in Stone- street, in this town, 011 the evening of Thursday the 9th instant, and was known to have a considerable sum of money in his pocket. The most diligent search was made after him by his friends, but without effect, and who at length concluded that he was way- laid, robbed and murdered ; nor were these doubts removed till Thursday last, when a gentleman reading the hand- bill stated that lie saw the person mentioned therein on the Tuesday preceding in the Borough, and conversed with him. No cause can be assigned for his journeying thither, which has occasioned so much anxiety both to his family and friends. On Tuesday last, some farmer's servants cruelly beat and over- drove a cow from our market towards Far- leigh, and the poor animal being irritated to madness ran at and threw down four boys at Tovil, and also darted at a young ladv who was riding on a donkey but who was rescued from the impending danger by a gentleman striking the cow over the head with a small stick, thus diverting its attention from the lady to him- self, whilst he in endeavouring to escape, was thrown upon his face by the animal striking her horns against the small of his back, penetrating his coat and tearing the same up to the top, and then running forward with- out doing him any farther injury than severe bruises. Had not the gentleman fortunately fallen upon his face, the horns of the animal would no doubt have entered his body and probably have occasioned his death. Surely persons, who send beasts to market, ought to be very careful to select such drivers as know how to manage them without cruelty or danger to passengers. Thursday a Greenwich Hospital Board was held at the Admiralty, for the purpose of receiving disabled seamen into that institution. Indigestion and Bilious Irregularities are not only very common complaints, but are also in many cases productive of most distressing symptoms, such as fre- quent nausea, flatulence, defective appetite, costive- liess, a sense of oppression, sometimes of pain in the chest, a weight or pressure over the eyes, and a general listlessness or depression of spirits. Mr. TOWERS'S Tonic Pills ( without acting as a direct purgative), gently relax the bowels, remove obstructions, and cor- rect redundant acidity. They decidedly strengthen the stomacli, assist the digestive powers, and promote a due and regular secretion of the bile.

On Saturday evening se'nnight as Mr. Robert Cur- teis was returning from Tenterden to Ashenden, he was stopped by a man armed with a large bludgeon, who demanded his money and pocket- book, which latter Mr. Curteis delivered to him, containing notes to the amount of £ 7, with which the robber made off.

Deal, Oct. 17.— A vessel's stem, marked " Hannah of Weymouth, has been picked up bv a Deal boat; suppos ed to be part of a vessel cast away on the Dutch coast. Five o'Clock.-- A Deal boat has just come 011 shore from the Goodwin Sand. The boatmen state, that a vessel is lost on the off part of the Sand, supposed to be a large cutter or sloop, from the appearance of her gaff and wayside boom, which they endeavoured to extri- cate from the wreck, but were prevented by the tide flowing so rapidly, which run it under water. CORN- EXCHANGE, MONDAY, OCT. 20,1817. We had but a moderate arrival of Wheat this morn- ing, chiefly from Essex and Kent. The trade, which had declined towards the close of last week, was in consequence brisker to- day, and last Monday's prices were readily obtained".— New Barleys, fit for malting, are much in demand, aud sell on better terms; and fine Malt commands better prices. Old Beans are about Is. per qr. dearer, but new Ticks, of wliich there is some quantity at market, are ratlier lower.— Boiling Pease arc about 3s. per qr. cheaper, but Grey Pease, are from ls. to 2s. per qr. higher.— Fine Oats obtain a ready sale at last week's cnuency. In other articles we have no alteration to notice. RETURN PRICE OF GRAIN, on Board of Ship.
