With 22 other Capitals, Money and Stock, and by an arrangement made bv the Contractor, 5,7i 0 Tickets have TWO CHANCES FOR THE SAME MONEY! As the first 5,700 Blanks will be re- drawn and it is nit uulikely a Number drawn first a Blank, may afterwards become a > 620,000 Prize, us was the case in the last Lotery Contract, when No 4,367 was drawn a Blank the First Day ; and had that Lottery been drawn iu the sual manner, that Ticket would have been entirely decided, but it was re drawn, and, in the Second Drawing was a Prize of £ 20,000, and sold by me in Sixteen Six teeuth Shares. Should the Holders of any of ihe 5,700 Blanks prefer parting witii the chance before they aie re drawn, ihey may receive £ 12 per Ticket, [ and in proportion for Sh . res) if presented on or before the 3d of December, by which they have the chance for such Capitals as are drawn early, anil cannot at the utmost lose more about one- third of iheir Purchase- Money.

It is said, that the intention of this Pacha is to render himselt an. independent sove. ctgn in E g y p t , and to seize tli'e teriitories of Tunis, A l g i e i s , and Tripoli. In that case there will be an end to the piracies ol the Barbary corsairs. It is iumou< ed, that there have been overtures upon this subject made at London, Stockholm, and other Courts. It is sndrrstood that the individual named Mathui in Brunot who has assumed the name ot Charles o f ' N - i v a r r e ( the pretended Dauphin), will be tried, not by the Court of A s s i z e s at Rouen, but merely by the Tribunal of Correctional P o l i c e.

Respecting navigation there is nothing determined tipon. This convention is considered a good initiative for the demarcation of frontiers, and it alFordi reason to hope that the other negociations will be happily terminated. It is untrue that tlie building of the N e w H o t e l fof the Russian Embassy at Constantinople, has been Countermanded. The death of Czerny G e o r g e will cause no misunderstanding.

FRANKFORT, Oct. 1.5.— There is much talk of the Congress which is to be held next year by the German Princes, and the A l l i e d Sovereigns ; but the place; or the object, of this Congrensj is at present equally unkriown. Various conjectures tire formed as to the objects that will be discusse'd. Some imagine tbat the relative military c o n t i n g e n c i es to be furnished by the German Confederation will be determined ; others, that the question of g i v i ng a Piotector toThe Confederation will be discussed ; while a third party supposes matters entirely ilitfefent from either ol the above; are t o be entertained. Perhaps nothing will be agitated but the completion of the A c t of the Congress of Vienna, by the adoption of measures necessary to confirm- the repose of Europe. The sildden departure of the President of tlie Germanic D i e t for Vienna, also gives rise to conjectures. It appears certain that the Austrian Government has summoned him, to give him instruction's concerning the approaching Session. It is reported IKat the Prince Royal of Prussia will be named Governor ol the Grand D i l c h y forme d by the Prussian Provinces of the L o w e r Rhine. BERLIN, Oct. li—- The people ot Berlin are dissatisfied with the billeting of the troops which are come here for the review, though it has always been so since the time of Frederick II. and they are paid daily four grosches ( sixpence) per man. The Landwehr here t a i l e d together aie dissatisfied, and e x c e s s and breaches of discipline occur. T h e militiaman bears unwillingly the burden of e x e r c i s i n g , of bivouacking, & c. and in these case3 he appeals to his quality of C i t i z e n ; but if the Civil authorities attempt to interfere with him, he says, " I ira a s o i d i e r .

T h e favourable consummation of this event excites the most lively feelings of anticipation, not only at Claremont House, but throughout the neighbouring village*, among whose population the names of Prince Leopold and Piincess Charlotte of Cobourg are held in estimation tor their numerous virtues ol which benevolence appears to be the characteristic standard. ARRANGEMENTS.—' The officers of State, whose presence is required on this great and happy occasion, are the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Lord B n h o p of London, Earls Bathurst and Sidmouth, the Secretaries of State, and Mr Vansittart, as Premier,—- Such oi these noblemen whose seats aie not in the immediate vicinity, are on visits at neighbouring mansions, for the purpose of being near, for the better convenience of attending on the illustrious Piincess.— Messengers are kept under orders to be in readiness, both day and night, to be dispatched for the requisite attendance of the Ministers of State, of the birth o f t h e infant.— The medical attendants or. their Royal and Serene Highnesses are, Sir Richard Croft, physician and accoucheur ; D r Storkman, resident physician ; and W. H. Neville, Esq. of Esher, is appointed surgeon and apothecary.— The wet nurse engaged is the wife of a must respectable and deserving yeoman, residing near Claremont, who has lately been the mother of another hearty infant, in addition to her present healthy family. The other nurses and re quisite attendants are ail arranged, and continue in regular waiting.— The servants o f t h e royal household are also detained at Claremont, in order to be i n immediate readiness to be dispatched with ex presses to her Majeety, the Prince Regent, and several branches of the Royal Family, as soon as the event transpires. We are happy to inform our readers, that her Royal Highness still enjoys a vigorous anduninterjupted state of good health, and has frequently accompanied her Serene consort in his tavourite antusement of shooting, for several hours together, in the park and n e i g h b o r i n g villages, before dinner, T I I E M A H R A T T A W A R . T h e hostile disposition of the Peishwa, and the insurrection in Cuttack, points so distant from each other, the latter being about 2 5 0 miles from Calcutta, and the former so near our Bombay territories, broke out about the same time. And so formidable was the insurrection at Cuttack, that not only was ihe intercourse between Puonah and Cal cutta, but between Madras and Calcutta, cut off for nearly a month. The force, however, dispatched by the Marquis of Hastings, would, it was hoped, put down the insurrection forthwith. About the middle of April, the Resident at Poonah heard that Trimbukjee, a well known and active leader, had escaped from Tannah, and was bloodshed ha3 Universally created* It is not true, as has been stated, that the prisoner " had one hand 6tabbed through, as if by the tines of a fork." The wound which originated the suspicion is inside of the right hand, deeply across the muscles of the thumb. The unfortunate Hall and his housekeeper were interred at TheddelthOrpe on Sa- | turday se'ennight, and their remains were attended to the grave by a vast concourse of sorrowing spectators from tbe neighbourhood and the adjacent villages. After the funeral, the Rev. S. Welfit, vicar of T h e ldlethorpe, took the opportunity of preaching a most ^ excellent and impressive sermon, on the melancholy occasion, io the parish church, which was listened to with becoming attention by a most crowded congregation. The unfortunate sufferer and his housekeeper had lived together for upwards of fifty years, and were highly respected i n ' t he neighboui hood. From the number ot wounds Hall had on his body, it is supposed he had a desperate conflict with his murderer, ere he lost his life ; indeed, he ( H a l l ) was a man of extraordinary mus cular strength of body, and esteemed through life one of the most couragiou9 and intrepid men in the marsh.— B o s t o n Gazzette.

This squadron consists of 5 ships of the line and 3 frigates, and is destined, accoiding to anceunts which are considered as certain, to a Spanish Port." CLAREMONT, Oct. 24, Saturday mornings 9 o'- clock.— The report of the state of the Piincess Charlotte this morning is, that there is on variation from what it ha^ been tor some time past. A vessal from Bengal has arrived, which sailed the 21 st of August. Letters are not yet delivered. I t is currently reported in the City, that a battle, has been fought. No d< ubt important intelligence will transpire when the letters are received. On Sunday evening last, a desperate attempt was made to escape from Newgate, in Newcastle, by Henry Scope, a convict condemned to death at the last assizes, for robbing the house of Mr Hammond, in the close, but whose punishment was changed to transportation. On the gaoler ( Mr G e e ) going with the turnkey to examine the rooms tor the ir> g any man that Wulcl say any thing against fchdrs; \-. c was not afraid, because the man who Went with him ; knew something about thenj; he was alarmed, but never went to any Magistrate. He was found out as a witness, because his master knew he was there. He did not like to put iiis own life in risque, was the reason he did not give information; he thought this was all foolish talk; did not know that many of the people in his neighbourhood were out of employment at that time; he did know thac any were thus situated ; could not say that any of them were drunk ; they had no arms with them.

STATE TRIALS.: Trial qj Jeremiah Brandreth, otherwise John Coke, - T h e following is territories, with ihe secret connivance o f t h e Peish> wa. The Resident was equally well informed an well prepared. He immediately brought a strong military force into the field, and on the 8 th of May it surrounded Poonah, and seized Pardittee, a strong Pagoda. The Peishwa's person was secured, and the military operations were effected without much resistance. A treaty was drawn up, which the P e i i h w a signed, and by which he gave up three of his forts. It was very rationally interred that tbe Pcishwa would scarcely have dared to evince a hostile disposition had he not been sure that the othei Mahratta chiefs were of the same disposition, and were determined to declare war against us. Scindia and Mcer Khan were expected to take the field forthwith, and Holkar would ot course act in concert with them. Meer Khan is at the head of a large army of hoi* e. Holkar's force is not known. T h e force sent into the province of Cuttack is under General Martingale. Sir John Malcolm will command the Madras army. This gentleman, author of the Political History of India, and the History of Persia, and late Ambassadoi to the latter country, is biother to Sir Pulteney Malcolm, and ranks high in the estimation of all competent judges for talent and energy. The Marquis of ' Hastings ia expected to take the field with the Bengal army. Captain Hall of the Lyra heard nothing, we believe, ot the hostile dispositions of the Mahrattas till he arrived at Madras. Besides the events which we have detailed, we hear that disaffection had broken out in the Ganjam district to such an extent, as to render it necessary to send a force of 1 0 , 0 0 0 men to quell it, and to put the country under martial law. It had been quelled, but the troops had not been withdrawn.— C o u r i e r . DISTRESSING N A V A L NEWS. copied from the Dublin Evening Post of the 18th : T h e L y i a ship ot war, homeward bound from Imiia, put into Bantry Bay, yesterday in want of provisions, having been for some time on reduced allowance, and had, when she reached the Bay, only three days' supply. Captain Hall arrived in in this city to day, and communicates the followi n g distressing information : — T h a t to the southwest he had fallen in with upwards of 3 0 0 vessels, all in extreme distress for want o f previsions, owing t o the prevalence of easterly winds for so long a perjod having prevented them from making any poiiit of land on this coast.

T o the pa'ticuUrs of these horrid transactions al. read stated, we have now only to add, that after a public and most serious and deliberate investigation, which lasted upwards of eight hours, before W. King, Esq. one of the Coroners for the County of L i n c o l n , aod the Ju'y re assembled at this Court, held by adjournment at Withern on the 16th inst., the inquest being first solemnly charged by him upon the evidence, returned verdicts of wilful murder of both the unfortunate victims against John Raithby, late of Theddlethorpe St Helens, l abourer, who was personally present during the whole of the inqui y, and was thereupon committed by the Coroner to the Castle of Lincoln, to take his trial for these offences at the next A s s i z e s, instead ot leading to the altar a respectable young woman whom he was to have married on the very day when a Jury of his native county pronounced their awful accusations, and consigned him to a prison ; whence, " it is devoutly to be wished," he may emancipate himself by complete proof of his innocence. The immenie concourse of people, not irom the adj icent but from distant parts of the count i y , on this melancholy occasion, fully proved the terrific impressions, - deep anxiety, and active exertions, which these heart- rending sccncs of baibarous EVIDENCE. Anthony Martin, examined by the Solicitor- General, Is in the service of Messrs Qutram and Jessop, iron, founders, at Butttrbury, which is within a mile of Pen • tridge. On Sunday the Sth of June, he went to Pentridge: with John Cope, who is also in the service of ivle^ si> Outram and Jessop. They went into Weightmati's Croft, a little below the White Horse public house, which was kept by Mrs Weightnian. After a little time, a girl came and called them to go into the house. They went accord mgly, and were shown into the parlour. There were a good many persons there, and more came afterwards. The were all talking about this Revolution. The prisoner Brandreth w is there ; he was called " Captain ?" his dress was different to that he now wore : he vvo- e grey trowser& andabrown great coat; he was shaved, and decent. George Weightma » , Ormond Booth, the two Joseph Weighimans, Thomas Weightman, and William Turner, were there. Brandreth had a map in his hand, and was pointing out where they were to assemble : he sau, there was no good to be done except by a complete overthrow of the government. There were particular places marked on the map with crosses. As the people came, in, some of whom knew Brandreth, and others of whom did not; they asked questions respecting the revolution: Shirley Astbery was one of those who came in ; there was a general conference as to what proceedings were to be taken for the overturning of the Government; it was settled that they should assemble the next night at du> k, the Peotridge people were to meet at Pentridge. and the Wingfield people at a stone, quarry about two miles distant. They were all ro proceed to Nottingham f-> rest, to meet a hrge party there, and to take the town. They Were to reach the forest at two o'clock in'the morning oi Tuesday. It was understood that there was to be a general rising through the country, but Pentridge and Wmgfield were to meet at dusk.— Sheffield; Manchester, aud many other places were to rise, as stated by Braridreth. William Turned, when he came to the White Horse, asked where was the estimate of their guns and pikes; th^ y said they had none. Upon which he asked why they had not, and said his parish ( Wingfield) was forwarder than any other ; for they had an estimate of every gun, sword, and pistol which they had. He added, that they had forty in a stone quarry to spare. It was then agreed, that in order to provide themselves with arms, they were to go and demand them, and if they could not get them by fair means, to take them by force. Wimess remained at the White Horse from ten m the morning till three in the afternoon ; during which time a great many persons came in— perhaps forty. Their conversation throughout the day relared to the Revolution. Brandreth was the principal person addressed ; he was always called Captain. Robert Moore was there ; he came from Ripley.. Mackessick was also there, as well as John Bacon., Brandreth recited some verse ; the purport of which was, " Every man his skill must try ; He must turn out, and not deny. No bloody soldier — He could not recollect any more. Weightman was sent off to Nottingham to see how the men got on there ; and money was gathered among the persons in the room to defray his expenses. Brandreth wrote a letter which he took with him. When Mackessick came in, he looked round and said, he thought there were too many there for that business. He asked Brandreth how he did? but Brandreth said he did nor know him. Mackessick, however, said, he met him on tlie road, and Brandreth recognised him. There was something said about drawing the badger with lighted straw, and shooting him. William Turner and Ltidlam talked of this. They said they would draw the badger in their own parish, and skin ir before they left it. Brandreth heard all that passed, and spoke to most of the persons as they came in. • Crass examined by Mr Cross. Was there listening to the discourse. They spoke operJy. Did not know of the meeting till he went; he told them to mind, there were constables in tbe room, and they threatened to put him up the chimney. He was himself a constable, and they knew it. Nobody called him a spy, nor did they object to his company ; they called him in to hear their debates and deliberations : he told them to mind what they said, when he had been there nearly half an hour ; there were pome papers delivered out; when he cautioned them, in the character of a constable, they were talking of a Revolution, and the like of that. George Wakefield it was that threatened to put witness up the chimney, and they actually suf fered him to remain three or four hours to hear their deliberations, knowing he was a constable. It occurred to him that it would be prudent to go immediately to a Magistrate, but he dur » t not; they were talking about shoothorse* kept by Mrs Weightman ; I went into the kitchen ! first, and afterwards went into the parlour, upon bemg. i told fey Mrs Weightman that there were two men from Butterly there that I knew, I and a man named Eisden, who accompanied me, went into the room. We found about twenty persons there, amongst whom were John Coke, Martin and William Turner, John and Robert Moore, Ormond Booth, George Weightman, and two others of the name of Weightman, brothers. There was also another man there named McKessick. Brandreth, the prisoner, was there ; a map was laid out before him, arid he was pointing out the places to wh'uh the party who were with him was to go ; the men were talking together. There was some poetry that Brandreth read, and was to this effect : — 41 Every man his skili must try, He must turn out, and not deny ; No bleody soldier must he dread, He must turn out, and fight for bread ; The time is come you plainly see, When Government opposed most be.'* The men said, u That no good could be done until the time was, that they had overthrown the Government." They said they had no doubt they would succeed in what they were going to do. They said that every village, and every part about there u must kill their own vermin " No explanation was then given as to what was meant by the word * 4 vermin ;" but afterwards they said, the first place they wetft tb go to from there was Wingfield, and they were to set a bundle of straw on fir£ before Colonel Malton's door, a Magistrate of this county ; that when he came out on the straw taking fire, they would shoot him. The Sheffield and Chesteffield people were to meet thtm at Butterley. When they got to the latter place they were to kill Mr Jessopp, the proprietor of the works ; Mr Goodwin, the manager ; and Mr Ragg, also employed in those works. When these persons were put ro death, the insurgents were to take possession of rhe Butterley works. They were to make their own iron at the works, when they were taken. William. Turner then produced a paper, which was delivered to a person who sat by him. It was stated in Br ndreth's presence how many guns every man had in th . parish of Wingfield. Turner said the Wing'field men were the best men, because they had more guns than the Ripley men. He said they had a parcel of pikes to the number of forty, in a stone quarry ; which pikes were for the purpose of protecting them against those who obstructed or attacked them. There was an agreement that all were to meet at ten o'clock the next night at Wingfield, to go, as Brandreth said, to Nottingham. It was said hy the prisoner that they were to go to Nottingham to take rhe place, and that the inhabitants of that town were to join them ; every man was to have plenty of rum, aud 100 guineas each ; they were to go down the river Trent on a journey of pleasure, when they got to Notringham ; George Weightman, sen. was to go to Nottingham to see how matters wen't. on ; the expense of his journey was to be collected in the room. Brandreth said he wanted a barrel of gunpowder to learn the men how to make cartridges; there was a ban el of gunpowder which the prisoner wished to have produced; it was said that there were plenty of churches on the road that they might get lead from.; this was said by the prisoner, vho added, that there would be no good done till Go-; w. rnment was overthrown. I was at the While Horse from twelve to four; during that time Brancreth was the leader there, ana Turner used to fly to him when he wanted any thing. The number of the company present did not exceed twenty ; but some came in aud went out occasionally. The map was often produced, and handed about the room, to shew the places that Brandvcth had I* Mr Booth's, from whos' pricked out with a pin, and marked with crosses on the back of it. Brandreth said, there was rlo doubt they should succeed in what they were going to undertake. Brandrech aud John Moore talked secret!^ ; but I did not know what they said. Cross- examined hy Mr Denman. I was there four hours. I was a constable at that time. Twenty was the greatest number of persons assembled there at one time. Martin, the last witness, went away half an hour before me. The prisoner did not leave the room more than once or twice. He left the room twice ; but he did nor. stay longer than to get a drop of gomething. Turner on these occasions asked where the prisoner was; but I don't know whether Martin answered the question. The prisoner was present when it W3S said that there were forty spikes in a stone- quarry. I did not inform a magistrate of these proceedings. Martin and I told them that there constables in the room, and they had better mind what they said. They seemed to say that they would put Martin and I up the chimney. The prisoner threatened to kill any one that made any disclosure of them. I was afraid to divulge any thing because I was badly frightened. The place was populous: this was of a Sunday. The house was by the road side, and much frequented, but the men said that they did not keep any thing secret that they said there. It was George Weightman that went to Nottingham. During the time Martin staid, I had an opportunity of hearing all he heard. Re examined by Mr Vaughnn. The room would not hold more than " twenty people. The reason that induced Brandreth to say that any one wh<£. divulged any thing about that meeting was, because I . and. Brandreth were strangers I had only been made a special constable two days. The reason Brandreth said that he did not make any thing secret was, because every body would be obliged to rise and join them. James Shipman, examined by Mr Clarice, Kings Counsel, Lived at South Wingfield in June last; lodged with Joseph Booth ; was at his door on Monday night the 9ch of J ine, at about half- past eight; saw Brandreth there; George Weightman was with him ; asked them - where they were going ? Brandreth said, to an old barn up in the fields, and added, that there was a meeting there of Crich, Pentridge, Wingfield and Alfre.- ton Parishes. There were arms and ammunition, « nd more would be taken on the way as they went to Nottingham. A band of music was to meet them, as well as thousands more who were on Nottingham Forest. Witness askecl them what they must do for provisions when so many thousands were gathered together ? He said there would be bread and beef, and half a pint of rum for each man. Witness then asked what would become of the women and children ? He said there would be a Provisional Government sent down to relieve the wives and children of those who were gone away. An old woman clapped him on the shoulder » nd said, my lad, we have got a Magistrate here; he said you will have a different one that will allow you plenty. On further conversation, Brandreth siid that England, Ireland, and Scotland were to rise u i that night, and that clouds of men would come from the north and sweep all before them, and every man that would not go would be shot upon the place. Witness said, if they did all rise, the shippingwould come and beat them all. G. Weightman then said 44 come along, T am already half an hour too late." — Brandreth said to witness 44 come along with us, and you shall have a good gun,"— he did not go with them, and they went away towards the barn. Cross examined by Mr Cross. Never knew the prisoner belorej and yet he answered all the questions that were put to him. Witness did not think of going with1 him, he thought he must be drunk or mad to tlnnk of such tilings; he saw no more of him till he was in custody. Thomas Turner, examined by Mr Gurney, Was apprehended on this business, and remained in custody ever since. Previous to his being apprehended, he lived at South wingfield with his father, he was a frame work knitter. He wag at Southwingfield ou the 9th of June. He left his father's house a little before nine, he was accompanied by Samuel Ludiam and John Walk r. They went to the Meeting- house, close to Colonel Halton's gates, saw William Turner, George Weightman and a strange man two or three hundred yards from the village. This strange man he afterward*- found to be the Nottingham daptain « *~ t » ie prisoner was th* man. They were ail three armed with guns. When witness joined them, they all went together to Hunt's barn, in a field of Colonel Halton'p. Before they went there, William Turner Was loading his gun with a bullet. George Weightman said, tome along, I expect an engagement very soon, with Jessop's men at. Butterley furnace. Witness asked I who the stranger was, and Turner said 44 that's our Captain from Nottingham." On getting near Hunt's barn, about a score joined them : they were armed with pikes and guns, and one sword or two. Geo, Weightman said, we must go to a field of MrTopham's, and the Pentridge people would meet them there. Before they set off, Wm. Turner and the prisoner formed them into ranks. Witness received a bag of bullets to carry ; he carried them in preference to a pike. [ Two pikes, with spearheads of rough workmanship, were here produced.] These were what he meant by pikes. The prisoner then gave them the word " to march/' They went to Mr Hardwick's house, and from thence to Henry Tomlinson's, Witness did not go with them, but went the nearest way to meet them at Topham's close. The three Ludlsms met them there : they had pikes in their hands. It was then arranged that George Weightman should go in search of others o f t h e party, and if he met them, to bring them to Pentridge- lane ; and George Weight man canied the bag of bullets with him. Witness and the rest of the party then went to Eiii^ n Hale's. Turner and the prisoner were the Commanders all the way. When they got there, Elijah Hale was outside the house, and the door was fastened against him. The prisoner asked him for his gun, but Mr Hall was unwilling to give it. After some dispute, the gun was handed out of the window, and the prisoner received it.-— The prisoner added, that he un- derstoou he had more arms— Hali said he had not ; on which the prisoner said, he knew he h.' d, and if he did not give them the door should be broke open. At last the door was opened, and the prisoner, witness, and several more followed Mr Hall in. The prisoner struck Mr Hall, and presenting his gun at him, said, if he did not give op his other arms he w< ul i shoot him. Witness lam hold of hits arm, told him not to use the man ill, for he aid not think he had any more arms. The prisoner then took & candle, and went up stairs to j search for some— he found none, but brought young j Hail down with him, and forced him to accompany them. He went very unwillingly. The three Ludlams and Joseph Turner, Swaine, and Bromley, were with them. Bocker was there also, and said he had longed for that day to come often ; and it had come at last. They next went to Isaac Walker's, and got a pistol, which the pri soner put in his apron, which was wrapped round his body like a belt. Their next visit was to Henry Bedwick ; he heard a window broke, but did not see the mischief done. They afterwards went on to Samuel Hunt's, who brought out bread and cheese and cold them to eat what they liked, and he would drees and go along with them. He die dress, and with Daniel Hunt, his man, went with them. Joseph Turner had a sword, and the others were armed with guns and pikes From Hunt's they went to Mr Epworth's.— Witness heard the prisoner rattling at the door; but it was not opened. The prisoner called for some one to come and break it open ; upon his calling, Samuel Hunt took up a stone, and flung it. at the door twice. The prisoner went from that door to a . little window, which was broke out. The prisoner was asking those within to give them arms out, and open the door. They did neither, but somebody denied the arms, upon which the prisoner fired in at the window. Witness could not- say whether he fired his gun or his pistol. Witness ran to the window, and saw a man lying on the floor, whom witness understood to be Robert Walker.' Witness- said ? o the prisoner he should not have shot that poor innocent m;; n, upon which he said it was his duty to do i t ; and if he said any more about it, he would blow his brains out.— After that, some arms were given out. They now proceeded to Pentridge Lane End, where they met several others, who were all armed.— Witness heard the party calling rhe men up, and ge ting arms where they could find them. When they were collected together again, the prisoner marshalled them, and said, if there Were any military men among them, they must turn out, and ke « p the men in order. Chas. Swaine then turned out— he had been in the Militia ; and he, with the prisoner and Turner, put them into ranks, two deep. Those with guns were put in ftont, and those with pikes were put m the rear. When arranged they were ordered to march, and they went to Pentridge, where more hotases were attacked ; among others they went to premises a poney was taken. They subsequently went to Butterley iron works. Geo. Weightman took the poney. The puty about this time might be.. three score, or more, strong. Heard that Weightman went to Nottingham on the poney ; he afterwards saw him return. From the iron works they marched away under the command of the prisoner to Riplev Town End : on their arrival there the prisoner ordered them to halt, and ^ ive three huzzas ; they did so, and they marched to Codner. They stopped at a public- house, where the prisoner ordered out. some ale : the ale was brought; and they were here joined by Samuel Hunt, Joseph Turner, and Edward Turner, and some other men. The prisoner and William Turner ordered the landlord to make out the bill, which amounted to 28s. The prisoner then said he need not be afraid of being paid, foj-. he would see him paid. They then marched on towards Nottingham. When they came to Langiey Mill, George Weightman rode up : the prisoner and many surrounded him, and asked him how they got on at Nottingham: he said they were going on very well— the town was taken— the soldiers would not march out to attack them, and they were to m « irch forward. Witness went with them beyond Eastwood: by this time several of the party dropped off; witness also quitted them, and left William Turner and the prisoner inarching on. Before witness left the parry some of them tried to get away, when the prisoner said if ihey did not turn again he would stop them ; he levelled his gun at the same time. A gun went off by accident, and a man was wounded. Witness, when he left them, threw away his pike. In his way back he was taken by the cavalry, and afterwards shewed where some of the pikes were thrown. Cross examined by Mr Denman. Booth's house is four miles from Laugley Mill. The men began ro drop off on the return of George Weightman. The men were all dispersed between nine and ten next morning. I was taken that night by the cavalry ; 1 pointed out to one of the cavalry tlie place where I and Turner threw away our pikes. Henry Tomlinson, examined by Mr Serjeant Copley, I am a farmer residing at South Wingfield 1 remember about half past nine on the night of the. 9th of June, a person came to my house from Hardwicke's, and gave me some information which induced me to lock my house and go with my wife into the yard. In about a quarter of an hour a body of men came to my house— there might j be about 30 or 40 ; they were armed with spikes aud guns. When they came they began ro rattle at my door, and asked for arms 1 don't know the prisoner. They said they wanted me or my gun. I said I had a gun, but that it was gone to be mended. It was a man they call ed their captain who said they wanted me or my gun. They said if I did not open the door directly they would break it open. This was said by the Captain. They then said they would search the house. I then went up to the door, and I saw a man named Wm. Turner, and I asked him 44 are you one, William;" and he said he was. I asked the same question of a man named Barker. I unlocked the door, and two persons followed me. I brought my gun into the house, which had been upon the bed tester. The Captain having demanded the gun, 1 gave it to them. The gun was taken away, and I went to the door, but did not go our. ; upon which the Captain said 44 you must go along with us.? They threatened me. I said I would not go. They said 1 must go; that I had better that mght, and not stay until the morning, for in the morning there was a great gang from Sheffield, and a great cloud out of the north, who would sweep ali before them. 1 replied, that I would not go that night, that if I must go, 1 would go in the morning. Upon which the Captain cocked his gun, and swore he would shoot me. He presented the gun at me. Some cried 4' d— n his eyes, smite his head off." Others said 41 let him go;" and others said 41 never mind," This was before riie Captain said he would shoot me. I then locked the door and went into the ford, where George Weightman stood. When the Captain cocked his gun j he said " niy, nay, I won't stand th? t- I'll go a little \ way, but it shan't be iar." The Captain said they were going to Nottingham, for they must be there by half- past eight it) the morning ; that it would not be necessary to j go further than that town, for London would be taken before they got there. I said to George Weightman, when I saw him in the fold yard, 44 are you one ?" He said 44 rest." I then said, it i3 a hard thing to ' take me away* and kave my wife in this lonely phce. He sa'd f t you had better £ e a little way, arid it shan't Jklong." ' They gave me a pike to carry. I said I wished to carry my own gun. 1 went with them some wa), when George Weightman gave me a bit of a nudge, ai d told me to turn again. I then left him and ieturne< i home again. Cross- examined.— I can't swear to the prisoners at all* Nobody spoke to me but those i have named. Elijah Hall, Sen., examined by Mr Reads*, I live at South Wingfield farm. I got home from n^ j* mill about eleven o'clock. I am a milter and farmer. MY null is a quarter of a mile from my farm. When I god home I fastened my door and windows. I was alarmed soon alter eleven by the foptsteps of two men coming up to my door. They asked me if any men had been there: that night to ar- k me for my gun. I said there had. I made that answer to get shut of them. They asked me if they had taken any away. I said 44 yes." In about minutes after they went, a number of armed men cam © into my yatd. There were about 20 or 30. rl hey were armed with guns and pikes. One had a sword, t asked them what they were doing at that time « f night. The answer was, they should not trust me, but they wanted fire arms. 1 told them I had no fire arms for them. They said they wfere positive I had, and insisted! upon having them. They said that I had better deliver them up quietly to prevent my house being fired, and tn my own life. I had gone on the outside of my house after the first party had come. They then said I had better open the door, which some of my family had fastened after I had gone out. I told them it was not in my power to do it, being outside ; upon whicli they proceeded to force it open with pikes. They at first failed in their attempts to © pen it, when they cried out, 44 Captain, how must it be ?" Somebody then gave a gun out of ihe Window.— When they goc the gun they then said, I mast go with them. I don't recollect who said that, 1 told them i should not go. Some one of the party said, he has sons. The Captain said, 44 if he has sons we will have them." After the gun had been put out of the houtfe, the Captain said, 4- then if they wont open the door we wili fire." Upon which the door was opened. Before they entered the house, they said they wanted a bigger lo. if, and times altered. They got into the house, there was about a dozen in number, of which the Captain was one, whos © name he afterwards found was Jeremiah Brandreth. T he witness then confirmed the testimony of Turner the accomplice. The interest excited by the case of this unfortunate man, seemed this day to have arrived at its utmost height, a circumstance which may be attributed to the fact of its being generally known that the only thing whiih remained to be done in order to decide his fate, was the delivery of the charge to the Jury by the Lord Chief Baron, and the deliberation of the Jury themselves. This case w.'. s in fact brought be fire the Court in a fair and intelligent manner, stripped of all matters of form, and presented only in that shape which the evidence, and the law as ic applied to that evidence, would fully warrant. The applications " to the High Sheriff for tickets of admission were more numerous than on any former day, and long before the sitting of rhe Court, the seats reserved for the accommodation of the more respectable inhabitant, of the town were completely filled. On opening the public door of the Hall, the crowd rushed in, and « oon filled every vacant space. The confusion resulting from this, however, having once abated, the most perfect decorum prevailed. Shortly before eight the prisoner wa « conducted from the gaol in the same torin as on the two preceding mornings linked to Mr Eaton, the gaoler's brother. On quitting the caravan he appeared perfectly collected, and j t o . ceeded to the Court with a firm step. I. ady Scarsdale, and most of the. Grand Jury, whose names have already been stated, were present in Court, together with some of the most respectable Magistrates and Land owners in the county. The Judges having at eight o'clodt, in pursuance of adjournment, entered the Court, the prisoner was | uc to the bar. He seemed perfectly unmoved ; but throi: gh » out ihe proceedings of ihe day, paid the most intense attention. Tlie Jury having be: ft conducted into Court by the bailiffs under whose supervision they had been placed, and their names been called over, The Lord Chief Baron addressed them to this effert —" I must now requesc your attention while 1 stare the evident:.: in this case, and suggest the observation, ihat occur to me ; and in order to remove from your mind, any apprehension that may have been elicited of th* Court interfering with your province, I have to say, that it is as far from the intention of any ol us to encroach on your province, as it can have been from the intention of any ot the Couusei vvh j have addressed you. You are ta judge irom the evidence applied to the case, according to the law of the case, as laid down by the best author" ties. Impartiality is your duty, and it, is a duty which 1 am c. tifidet. t you will exeicise. Si you think the evide . ee affords proof of the crime charged, you will find the prisoner guilty; if, on the other hand, you find the evidence insufficient, you will acquit the prisoner ; and if that should be the result, none can rejoice more than I, assured as 1 am that you will judge according to the evidence. The first count iu the indictment charges the prisoner with levying war against the King It is very important for you to understand what is meant by levying war; the expression is clear, yet it applies to diver, meanings. I will now state, to you the law, as tlearly established, in reference to the case before you. The words of the statute 25 h Edward III. are, • If a man ievywar against our i. ord the K: ng in hi. realm' The explanation of this law, which 1 h- ive h? re ( Foster's), is short and ciear : I therefore read it to you, rather than give an explanation in any words » f my own : ' If there be an insurrection, a large rising of the people, in order by lorce and violence to accomplish or revenge, not any private object or private quarrel of their own, but an object ol a general na. ure, that is a levying of war against the King.'— From my experience of the administration of justice, trom ihe decisions o( Courts, and from the authority of Sir Matthew Hale, Judge Foster, and Lord Coke 1 can affirm that this is a dear, a correct explanation of the terms of the statute. Private tumults are not a levying of war. If the object be only a private one, whatever may be its character otherwise, it is not a levyinr ot war. To destroy a private enclosure is not levying war against the King. To destroy all enclosures is a levying oi war. If the object be to pull down a chapel, or an offensive building, it is not a levying of war ; if it be to Octroy all chapeis, or all offensive buildings, is alevving ot war. There must then be an insurrection or large rising ; force and violence must be used ; it must be it r a general object. That there was ail insurrection is clear it is also clear that force and violence were used. It ; j jour province to . ay whether the object was general or private ; whether the insurrection was only the effect cf private quarrtls, of wild, violent, and riotous tumult - or whether trie obj. ct was to alter the measures of Goverment, and to destroy the laws of the country. If I have made myself intelligible to you, you can have no difficulty in understanding the nature of your duty. The otl. ee cnunts oi the indictment areiounded upon the 3Gch ct the King. The question lor yuu to determine is, whether any o f t h e three charges is proved by the evidence which. I now detail to you. ' ihe evidence is ail on one side, and most ol the witnesses were not even cross- examined, ed, yet attempts were made, very properly, ) n ihe speeches ot the Counsel to tix imputations on rhe credit ol the evidence. It is lor yuu to judge whether such attempts were successlul."— l'he learned Judge then read the evidence very iuily. He remarked jiiat the atrocious murder which took place w as not treason, but it was lor them to say what was the object of such attrocious conduct. He at last concluded a charge ol two hours thus : This, gentlemen, is the evidence That there was an insurrection is ciear ; that there v, as a large rising, and that moie were to jo II ill Nottingham Forest, is quite clear. It is equally clear thit the persons assembled the.. v. ere armed. 1 here was then force and violence. Was this violent and forcible rising calculated to accompli5: i any private object, or to revenge any private quarrel ? or was it calculated and imended to alter tile government and to bring about a revolution.' The low situation ill life of ihe persons engaged in this insurrection i » no excuse. A ciime is not less a crime because the criminal is pour. If there could be no prospect oc" success, that is no excu; e, because the crime consists in the intention and not in'tne adequacy oi ti e means. The question lor you is, Was the rising calculated to aher ths government, to overturn the laws, and to cause a revolution ? Yeu li rve the evidence before you, and it says th. it It was declared from time to time that there could be no good wi'hout an overturn of the Government, th » c the Parliament must be pulled down, and similar expret. Itona. If y^ Q this evidence, rou are bound by ' hm) ecuIJ fiot te compressed within such nan the oath you have taken to find the prisoner guilty. If, I limits, and he was advised to carry them in his hand, on tht other hand, you can iay your hands on your hearts, [ Upon this he wrapped them in an old black handkerchief , and believe, and ate satisfied, that the object was private 6r personal then you will nor. find him guilty. I persuaded you will gi ve every attention, and exercise the most perfect integrity. Ail consequences that fnay result The word 4 ready' was now given from without, to announce the caravan ro be waiting for him. He hastily drunk up what remained of his negus, and, carrying the sandwiches with him*, was conveyed out of the Hall by to leave entirely out of view, and to regard only the back way. He walked with a firm step, and with an atrict justice, a just verdict according to the Jaw, in the face of God - nid- your country." The Jury then retired to consider of their verdict. Duri g their absence the prisoner sat down, and appeared perfectly calm. Several persons who had been summoned as Jurors • were now called up, and were excused, on the account ol their not being freeholders of 10/. a- year value. After the lapse of half an hour, the Jury returned to Court, and on. their being called over, were asked, in the usual form, by the Cierk of the Assize,—" Gentlemen of the Jury, are you agreed in your verdict ?— How say you, is the prisoner at the bar guilty of the treason whereof he stands indicted, or not guilty ?" The Foreman answered " Guilty." The Clerk of the Assise then asked what lands, goods, and tenements, the prisoner at the bar was possussed of at the time of the committing of the treason, or sinc. e ? The Foreman answered u None." The verdict was then recorded. Before the verdict b? ing returned, there was a visible alterariwn in the countenance of the prisoner. At eight o'clock the Court adjourned to Monday morning, when ont:, or perhaps more, of the other prisoners will be placed on their trial. air of gloomy res; gnatioo, escorted by a few javelin- men to the caravan, which he ascended,, being still handcuffed to Mr Eaton,, and was carried back to the prison at eleven o'clock, amidst a greater crowd than had accompanied him on any previous occasion. There was no cheering as he parsed, nor was there any expression of an opposite nature ; but the verdict of the Jury seemed to have made him an object of greater public interest than he had been at any time anterior to the trial, or during its progress. October 19. The unfortunate Pandreth, when he was conducted from the Court- house yesterday, after his conviction, to the prison, although he exhibited a manly firmness, was nevertheless evidently much affected. Throughout the the wretched man's confinement, he seemed to have en tercained a confident expectation of has acquittal,. both upon the charge of high treason and upon that of murder ; *< nd this expectation appears mainly to have rested on the Supposed impossibility of his being identified as the man who assumed the title of " the Nottingham Captain," having suffered his beard to grow, so as almost completely to cover hi;; visige— Indeed, when it is considered that he wa- i in point of fact a stranger to Southwingfieid— having gone thither from Nottingham, for the express purpose of taking the command of the insurgents in that division, it is not surprising that such an idea should have crept into his mind. The singlar cast of his features, aided by a peculiar and determined expression of rha eye, rendered his identity unquestionable— and almost every witness who spoke to his person swore to him most positively. He is a man well known too in the neighbourhood of Nottingham, and is said to have possessed much of the respect or confidence of those who knew him. On his return to the gaol he was put into the yard with the other prisoners who stand charged with high treason. All that reserve which he had before studiously observed, was now thrown off, his former companion* flocked around him, and enquired most anxiously the result of his trial. He uttered the single word " Guilty," and in a moment a perfect change was visible in the countenances of those whose fate yet remains undecided. They, however, endeavoured to cheer each other, and were this day in tolerable spirits. They were visited by Mr Bond and Mr Wragg, their Solicitors, who through* out have paid them most assiduous and humane attention, and some consultations took place as to the course intended to be taken with regard to challenges to- morrow. The result of this conference has, of course, not transpired ; but it is generally believed seven or eight of those against who n the Crown possesses the strongest evidence will be put on their triai together. The wretched men have regular intercourse at particular hours with the r friends and relatives, in the presence of the gaoler or his assistants, and in fact every pains taken, consistent with the nature of their situation, to lessen the horrors of their confinement. It is not expected thit the whole of the prisoners will be rri ' d; but that, after a certain number shall have passed the ordeal of a Jury of their countrymen, the rem inder, after a suitable admonition upon the imminent haza d in which their lives hid beeu placed, by the folly and imprudence of their conduct, will be discharged. The sensation produced on the town aud county of Derby by he verdict of the Jury, has been considerable. The Jury were men in ordinary situations in life— small farmers, and men of competent understanding; they heard the case throughout with the utmost patience and auen . i in, and in pronouncing their verdict, we hate not the slightest doubt, were iully convinced of its justice; for, while the foreman was pronouncing the fatal decision, there was scarce a man among them whose humanity and pity did not seem to be in conflict with his sacred duty. This conviction, as was stated by Mr Cross, in his speech on behalf of the prisoner, is the first which has taken place for levying war against the King since the rebellion 1745, and we sincerely trust the fate of the poor deluded Brandreth will deter others from following li s course, and at the same time produce a proper sense of shame and remorse in the breasts of those who, by their insidious and inflammatory speeches and publications, have led to the outrages which hav te. irs, and has ever since appeared to be beyond the reach of consolation. William was by order of the Sheriff double ironed. He was this morning attended by the Chaplin, the Rev. James Pickering, and, together with his companion Brandreth, paid the utmost attention to that Gentleman's pious exhortations. Brandreth expressed a desire to be attended by a Methodisticai Clergyman; but this wish, it is at present believed, will not be complied with. The trial of Isaac Ludlam stands next in order ; but in © bedie. ice to the suggestions of • - the Attorney General, It will, perhaps, be most correct to abstain from making any allusion to the proceedings in Court upon the case of each prisoner until the peiiod shall arrive when the pro hib lion of the Judges snail cease to be in force. When this period may arrive is extremely uncertain. If the Counsel for the prisoners persevere in making separate challenges for each, it is not likely that the business of the Commission can be brought to a close before the ensuing Term ; and in that event it is rumoured that an adjournment will take place, and the trials be resumed on a future day. Some recent discoveries which have been made, and to which at this sea- on it would be imprudent to advert, render it imperative on the Officers of the Crow - o persevere in their present painful duties with , ndiminis ed zeal. Oct, " 2 — i he Court met this morning at 8 o'clock.— Isaac Ludlan* the elder, was brought in and placed at the bar. At twenty minutes after nine the trial commenced. Mr Balguy opened the case. The Attorney- General i , llowed. The case for the prosecution closed, and the Court adjourned till to- morrow. The difficulty which the Crown Lawyers have of bringing any material number of the prisoners to trial at once, proceeds from the nature- of the law and the extent of ( he pannel. According to the statute of William 111. any prisoner accused ot high treason is entitled to challenge 35 of those summoned lor his Jury ; and there being altogether only 300 names on the pannel, the exercise of this privilege by each of the prisoners ( and their intention to sever their challenges was declared a^ th* e outset), would render it difficult, if not impossible for the Crown Lawyers to find a Jury, even supposing they challeng - d none themselves. Isaac Ludlam, the third prisoner put on his trial at Derby, is a man between 50 and 60 years of age. He appears perfectly collected, and shews neither the dejection of Turner nor the indifference of Brandreth. In the prison he has distinguished himself by assisting his fellows in their devotions. He is in the habit of giving out the hymns when they are disposed to sing, and occasionally prays with them. On being taken from the County Hall on Wednesday he- was much depressed, and in his intercourse with the other prisoners did not acquit himself with his usual ability. Bratidreth seems perfectly resigned ro his fate. Curiosity has attracted a number of persons of distinction to visit him, whose benevolence have relieved all his immediate wants. Though he retains many of his former habits, he appears anxious to avail himself of the assistance of the Minister of the prison, and devotes a considerable portion of his time to preparation for that awful change which he is well aware must be near at hand. Wm. Turner is less thought of than Brandreth. His dejection is very great. George Weightman and Manchester Turner are severally mentioned as the persons who will next be brought to triul. by pubhc sale, at an average ot 901. 2s. 6d. ; the last having gone off at 921. \ and the remaining 34* shares have since been sold by private bargain at 901. payable at Martinmas. We feel great pleasure in obseiving, that those unfortunate people, the deaf, dumb, and blind, are now no longer to be left in that helpless and melancholy state, in winch a seeming neglect has top long placed them, nor to be deprived of that most important and essential object to rational creatines, a knowledge of religion, and instruction in various branches of education. A benevolent institution of this nature is now to be attempted here lot the benefit of this benighted class of society : and certainly so laudable an undertaking cannot fail to interest the public at large, by its receiving that patronage and support it so fully merited, and is in every point of view calculated to pioduce. We are authorised to state, that it is proposed a public examination shall take place in December ensuing, in order to show the progress of the pupils in the naBcin oociety baviug requeued several gei. tiemeo to obtain facts respecting this piodigy, on oath, one of the persons, Mr Story, gave a deposition of having seen it, before the H o n .

M I L A N , Sept. 15,— The Abbe A n g e l o Mai, one of the Librarians of the Ambrosian Library, here, has discoveied, that two voluminous m. mur pts contain a second writing, under the lirst ( he linding of one work written over, oi between the lines of another, in order to save parchment, is an occurrence well known to." intiquaiian c r i t i c s ) . — T h is is a copy of the Mseso- Gothic translation of the thirteen. Epistles of Saint Paul, made in the fourth century by Bishop Ulphilas, the loss of which has been regretted to this day. Ulphilas translated all the Bible into the M s s o - Gothic language, that is to say, the language of the Gpths of Msesia. There remain of this translation only the Codex Argenteus of Upsal, containing a Considerable part of the four Gospels, published in 1665 by Francis Junius, and a manuscript of Wolfenbuttel, containing several verses of five chapters of the Ulphilanim translation of the E; istle of Paul to the Romans, on which Francis Knittel commented in 1702. By him they were discovered. T h e present Manuscripts contain eight Epistles, at least in part. Ti ey may furnish a great opportunity for Biblical Criticism, and for the students of German antiquities. They are w. iitten in a handwriting, which is different from that of the other, and which appears to be of the 5th or 6; h century. A Personage at Milan, estimable for his knowledge and his liberality, and tilled with zeal for the publication d Ulphilas, has had a complete set of Maeso- Gothic characters cast by a Micso- Gothic founder j and the Abbe will publish a preliminary dissertation upon the Manuscripts.

On Saturday moroiog he conlidtnt from the spiiit played, and the perfection ot their apparatus, that their enterprise wanted nothing to ensure complete success, but their tailing in contact with the serpent. ( From the Boston Sentinel of Saturday.) ' i'he serpent was seen yesterday morning ofF Kettle Island, between Manchestei Cape Ann : he was following and feasting on a large show of ale- wives. The arrangement made in Cape A na to take him were ready tbr operation yesteiday moi ning ; and if skill, courage, and strong apparatus can eifect the desired object, then success is ceitain. We conveised yesterday with Captaitl Beach, jun. who has seen ihis apimal from ten to twenty times, and has taken an accurate drawing ot him for exhibition, f i e desctibes him as being, in his most contracted sta'e, about seventy feet in length, and of the size of a floui barrel. A number ot our enterprising citizens have been at Capi Ann some days to encourage and assist in the destruction ot the monster. A committee of the Linnsem Society, we learn, wiil repair to Caps Ann this day to collect inloriiiatton so interesting to natural history, Latest of the Serpent.— Capt. Doyle* who arlived here yesterday morning in three, days from Cape Ann, informs us, that the day before he sailed, a number ot boats went in pursuit of the serpent; that the serpent soon turned upon his pursuers; and that they with great difficulty succeeded in reaching the shore. Two thousand dollars have been ottered for his skin. T h e late Sultana Valide, mother of the Grand Segr. ior, who recently died at Constantinople, was, it is stated in a French papei, a Creole, born au Martinique, the daughter ot respectable parents. On her voyage to France, for the purposes of education, the merchant vessel, on board of which she was a passenger, was captured by an A l g e r i ne Corsair, and she became a slave at Algiers. The Fiench Consul offered to ransom her, but she refused her consent in Consequence ot an o ld Negiesa having predicted to her that she would become one of the greatest Pi incesses in the world, and notwithstanding all the ihtieaties of her telations she persisted ii: abandoning herself ro hei fate.

A m o n g the many disagieeable circumstances to which Englishmen aie e x p o s e d , i n travelling through Fiance, is the rude behaviour of the military, which, is not. confined to the common soldier, but characterises a great portion of the subordinate officers ; ami it requires great forbearance to avoid the unpieasant, and even dangerous, copsequences which might ensue f i om resenting their unprovoked and gratuitous insolence. As an instance of the t. u h ot this remark, and of the brutal conduct of the soldiery, we are d e s i i e d by some of our countrymen just returned from that countiy to state the foiluwi o g fact ; — A s th ree English gentlemen were walking on Sunday last under the Piazza at Dieppe, which leads to Taylor's hotel, a sentinel on duty, before the Colonel de Jouilli's bouse, was observed to be in a violent dispute with two English females, having the appearance of servants, who complained of being struck by the sentinel with the butt- end of his musket, as they were passing peaceably by the front et the Colonel's house. As the gentlemen walked past them to the hotel, the females were appealing to Mr Taylor, the hotel- keeper, for protection, who was heaid to advise them to walk on and not notice the assault, there being no redress for theni in France. About an hour alter this affair, thi te gentlemen were returning to the quay, when the sentinel on duty rushed suddenly towards them, and giving them no notice of his intention, and in ihe most menacing manner, with his fixed bayonet drove them from the piazzi into the street, ej. iculat! ng the foulest oaths and insults unon the English. The width of this piazza, which fronts the E x c h a n g e , is nearly 2 0 feet. When these gentlemen observed that all except Englishmen were allowed to pass and repass without any kind of molestation, they ventured to ask the sentinel if he had orders to make this distinction J " roint dc reflexion," and a thrust at them with the bayonet, ' was the answer t the consequences of which they narrowly escaped by a precipitate retreat into the street. A gens d'armee passing by at the time, trie gentlemen applied to him for protection. He directed them to apply to Colonel de Jouilli, before whose h j u s e the soldier stood sentinel. E thin time a considerable crowd had collected to vindicate the Conduct ot the soldier, but ourcoHntryr-. cn weie not thus to be deterred from seeking redress ; they again presented themselves before the Colonel's house, as the gens- d'aimee had instructed them, and, h. df concealed in the crowd, had reached the gate, and were on the point of entering the courtyard of the house, when the soldier i- ercmin'w theui, they were again driven back into the street a thiid time at the point of the bayonet, A natn of the regiment was next obseived by the • o have mixed with the crowd witnessing the atratr ; to him they immediately represented tht- conduct of the sentinel, in a l o u d and peremptory " tone, ih;. t the people might hear ; he replied, that the soldi r was justified in his conduct t o y ^ ' d s th- English, he having been insulted by t w ^ E n g l i s h females whilst on duty } and that unlesa'the gentlemen immediately discovered who the ' females were, he would instantly order the afrest of ill three. Irs vain did they urge that they V e t e total s - rn . e ., in Dieppe ; that they had arrived by t- e diligence but a tew hours before, and Were w h . ' : . Luoi.- ot . V \} J Ti > 5: e affair. No matter, they were EngUbhmen, and tins ot useit seems au offence in Fi ance which admits of no extenuation. The Commissaire of Police was sent for, and the gentlemen retired to Taylor's hotel, there to await rhe result of those proceedings which were meditated against them. On representing their situation to the English, who h i d arrived there that morning from Brighton, it tppeared that all of them had been similarly insulted on theii wry to the hotel ; and amongst those whose lives had been exposed to the brutal violence of the sentinel, were a lady and two American gentlemen, who had been mistaken foi English. Upon which it was immediately resolved to make comfnon cause with each other, and to address a letter to the Colonel. We have much pleasure in adding, that the reception they met with from Colonel de Jouilli was highly satisfactory. He gave repeated assurrances that the soldier should be punished for his conduct in the most exemplary manner. SINGULAR INCIDENT.— One of the most extraordinary instances ot good fortune that perhaps ever occurred to any human being, has fallen to the lot of a young gentleman, now about eighteen years of age, the son of a respectable farmer in the vicinity tif Newmarket:— In travelling, more than eighteen months since, from his father's house, in the county of Cambridge, towards Shrewsbury ( where he went to school under the Rev. Dr Butler) he accidentally met with an elderly gentleman in the stage coach, to whom he was entirely unknown, but who • was so much pleased with his company, that before they parted at Shrewsbury ( where the gentleman resided) he told the youth that he had long been looking for a person to whom he might leave his fortune, and that he was the object of his election. The gentleman then gave him a general invitation to his house, whe; e he was always treated with the greatest respect, and introduced to the best society of the place for more than a year, and had a horse and servant kept for him whilst he remained at the school, which he continued to do till very recently. The gentleman being taken extiemely ill within these few weeks, sent for the youth, and repeated his former intimation of giving him all his property. Accoidingly he caused a f e e gift of his immense • wealth to be legally made out, only stipulating, that in case he survived, the youth should handsomely provide for him during the continuance of his life. He, however, died a short time after he had signed the deed, in which it had been discoveiTd tbat be possessed more than 500,000/. sterling ! What is very remarkable, the youth { as we are told) nev « " r conmunicated any of the circumstances to his family, uutil after ihe decease ol the gentleman ( who is said to have been a West Indian) fearing, probably, to taise expectations that might never be realized. Since the event, however, we have great pleasure in relating, that the youth's filial and fraternal affection has been most honourably evinced, by his having voluntaiily given 50,000I. each to his father and elder brother 1 COPPER TREE.— At the beautiful and magnificent palace of the Duke ot Devonshire, Chatitsworth, Oi the banks of a fine piece of water, is a tree of copper, representing a willow, from every leaf of which water is made to issue by the turning of a cock, so as to form an artificial flower. FADDY IN DINGWALL. A few days ago as two tiavellers were passing through the town of Dingwall, in Ross- shire, they stopped at an innkeeper's whose sign bore the testimony to " good Stabling by ."

Of course lie made a snatch at her, but she eluded his grasp, and dashed through the grate into the street, between a man's legs. She then made her way up the lane, hut was turned by a man driving a cart, who was joined by three others in the put suit. Against sjch a host of enemies poor puss had no chance to escape, and being assailed on all sides, she took int. i the mill- yard, and quietly surrendered herself. She weighed 71b. EXTRAORDINARY S U B J E C T . — A most singular circumstance accurred at Mr Brooks's, the suigeon, in Blenheim- street, yesterday evening :— A coacli stopped t the door, where subjects are received, aod a body in a sack was deposited on the top of the stairs leading to the dissecting- room. The cpachman and. assistants made their bow as usual upon such occasions, and left the subject. Mi Brooks happened, to be present, and he asked one ot his men why he did not tumble the body down istaiis. The man, in compliance with his master's mandate, began to pejform his woik, by fastening hold of the end of the sack, and having got it down two steps, a living subject threw his naked a. ms and shoulders out, and begged far his life, not relishing being tumbled down about 20 stone steps. A scene ot confusion followed, easier conceived than described— Mr Brooks armed himself with a brace of loaded pistols, Whilst his attendants flew for an officer. Prompt assistance was had, and the fellow, in a complete state ot nudity, was imploring mercy, with the engines of destruction at his head, when that assistance arrived. The account he gave of himself was, that he had come from Teddlington, Middlesex, that day ; that he had got BO drunk he did not know how he came there. He said he had no recollection of the person or persons who brought him there, or wheie he had been. He was convoyed away by Needham, a constable, to the watch house in a coach. EVENTFUL HISTORY OF A C O N V I C T . — T h e following extraordinary account is given of a convict who was lately sentenced to death for forgery ; — He served as a marine under Admiial Duncan in tlie memorable battle ot Camperdown; and was one of the chosen band who carried the trophies taken in this engagement to St Paul's. He afterwards became a soldier in the 4th regiment, and was with the Duke of York in Holland, where he formed one of the 4- 2 that weie sent to relieve his Royal Highness at the time his horse was unable to pass a certain dyke. He was the whole of the campaign with General Moore, and with him when he fell at Corunna. He was at Copenhagen and Walcheren ; a id a„' ain through the Peninsula with Wellington, b.- ing at the battles of Barossa and Salamanca, and at the sieges of Badajos, Bayonne, and many others, No authentic intelligence has yet been received with regard to the destination of the Russian squa dron. It is generally beli.- ved, however, that it is bound in the fiist . instance to Cadiz, where it is lo be delivered over to Spain, and whence the crews are to be sent back to Russia. The latter part of this report is not very probable ; and, indeed, the whole Of the expedition is exceedingly mysterious. As the fleet is expected to touch at Portsmouth on its way to Cadiz, some information may theB be obtained respecting its object and destination. The war in India, the commencement of which was announced in the Postscript of our last number, is not likely, according to the opinion of the bes. informed, to prove either hazardous or of long continuance. Such an event has been for some time anticipitated ; and at none of our settlements can it have taken the British Authorities by surprise. We trust, therefore, that this war, excited by the turbulence of the Mahratta Chiefs wiil terminate in the abiidgement ot their influence in India, and n. giving to our possessions in that quarter a greatei degree ot consolidation and security than they have yet possessed. Some account will be found in a subjoined let terof Sir Gregor M'Gregor's expedition against Amelia Island. We are sorry to be under the necessity of altering our opinion with respect to theprobable motives by which this Chief has all along been actuated, in the cause of the Patiiots : it ap pears too evident that his sole object in the enter, prize, which he now seems to have entirely aban doned, was the acquisition of plunder, and tha; he is scaicely entitled to be reg. aded in a more honourable point of view than as the unsuccessful leader of a banditti. It will be seen by the lettei ot our intelligent correspondent, that the fever at Charleston continues to rage with undiminished malignity. A considerable portion of our preceding columns is this day occupied with the proceedings against the unfortunate and deluded men, who were lately brought to trial at Derby, on a charge of High Treason. Four of the pusoners have been convicted capitally ; but one of them, having been less deeply implicated in the criminal excesses fur which he was arraigned, has been strongly recommended to mercy, and will probably experience the Royal clemency. I'he Solicitor for the Crown has intimated to the Counsel tor the other prisoners who have not been brought to trial, that if they withdraw their plea of " Not Guilty," the prosecution against them would be abandoned, and in that case hopes might be entertained of their receiving the mercy of the Ciown. In stating ! he case of these unhappy men, it was asserted, with all the authority which can be derived from" the highest lega knowledge that " the lotf situation in life of tli persons engaged in the insurrection is no excuse. A crime is not less a crime, because the criminal Is poor. If there could be no prospect of success, that i » no excuse ; because the crime consists ir the intention, and not in the adequacy of the means." These remarks, which aie only to a certain extent true, when applied to moral offences, must, in th. case of political misdemeanours, be received with still greater limitation. An attempt to excite in suirection on the part of a poor deluded man, ignorant of the nature of civil institutions, and goaded on by the urgent solicitations of hunger, must u ely be viewed either morally or political, as a less heinous- offence, than the same act committed by a man in affluent circumstances, who has no temptation to disturb the peace of society, except the lust of power, or the love of popularity, and no evils to complain of, unless those which are conjured up by a restless and turbulent spirit. We regret, therefore, that the instigators of political crimes, your Hunts and your Cobbets, escape untouched, while the deluded victims of their dai k designs are doomed to suffer the highest punish. m « nt wbich the laws of their country can award against them. Small, Presentees to the Church of Stirling, and laid before the Synod an instrument of notoiial protest to them by the said Dr Wtight and Mr Small, against cettain proceedings of the Presbytery of Stirling, in the settlement ot a third minister in the church) to which Dr Wiight and Mr Small, are Presentees ; in which protest it is stated, that the right arid inteVest ot the Presentees are materially affected by these proceedings of the Presbytery ; and in particular, complaining that the Presbytery ot Stirling refused to hear them for their interest, or sustain or discuss their reasons ot complaint. Alter a long debate on the merits of the case, in which the conduct of the Presbytery was severely animadverted upon, particularly tbeir absenting themselves from the Court after the strong steps taken to ensure then appearance in it, to answer the serious allegation brought against them, it was moyed and sec uided, that the Synod Considering from the representation laid upon the table, that something Very irregular appears on the face ot the proceedings, enjoin the Piesbytery of Stirling to appear in the Meeting uf Synod in April'next, to produce their records in as far as connected with the business, and to afford them an opportunny ot answering the allegations which are new made against tbem. To this motion an amendment was moved and seconded, that the- words be expunged which reflect on the Presbytery's irregularity of conduct. Alter considerable discussion in which it was urged on the one side that the Presbytery were not present to explain their procedure, end on the other that their absence in such a case was a most reprehensible dereliction ot duty, and that the motion was framed in as temperate and lenient language as the affair impartially considered, would admit ot, the a- • . endmentwas negatived by a considerable majority. An elegant ball ' and supper was given in the Hammermen's Tavern, on Monday 27th inst. in cclebiation of King Crispin's Day, by his worthy subjects, The ball commenced at seven o'clock in the evening, and continued till a late hour in the morning. The gieatest harmony and good humour prevailed throughout the whole ot the festival. ghtahh stbk feoil".— After ihe cloth was removed, many suitable toasts were given which our limits will not permit us to inreit ; several gentlemen sung some songs both in Gaelic and English. In the eastmost window in front of the Star Inn there was a beautiful transpaiency of the Glenorchy Aims, at full lengthi In the centre window a view of Caolchuirn Castle, his Lordship's seat in Glenoicliy with the surrounding lake of Lochawe and nei; libouiing hills, with the words " Glenorckyfor ever" on a hanging scroll above ; and on another scroll below, " Caistcal Chaol chuirn.'' And in the westmost window, the Perth Aims. These transparencies attracted gteat ctowds ot the people, and were very much admired. While all this went on within, the Crowd on the streets, particularly before the three piincipnl Inns, were not idle : large bonefites made ot coal, tarbarrels, and wood, were in different places ; and, to heighten the diversion, the company at the Star Inn oidered a quantity oi whisky; gin, and porter, to be distributed among tbe crowd, which was, as might be expected, well received ; and soon brought forth " Lord Breadalbane ; Glenorchy forever'' and long life to him. We conclude the description of the festivities ot this joyiul day by stating, lhat there never has been, in Perth, so gieat a number of gentlemen dining on one occasion ; nor could there be any meeting mote humourous and convivial ; thus affording the most unequivocal proof how much the Noble Family of Breadalbane,- are beloved and retpected in this- city. Extract oj n letter from a Gentleman in Sulli van's Island to his jneud in. Perth, dated loth. September, ,1817 :— " Sir Gregor M'Gregnr has given up the command ol the army " destined fur the emancipation of the Flori das!" The fortress of St rtugustiue, tile capital of East Florida, is, with the exception of the Moi ro Castle it; Cuba, the strongest on this side ot the Atlantic. Its situation and works render it almost impregnible by land, and the water access to it is uf the most difficult nature. Colonel Coppeuger is a man ol the first military talent-, and of a veiy vigorous and enterprising character— educated iu New York, lie lias imbibed the persevering spirit of the Americans, and aciively engaged during the whole of the war in Spain, he has studied tactics in the best school, and he is now, what a Castiiian Chevalier was, when Castile was in its glory. The garrison ul Augustine consisted of about 300 men, bearing some resemblance, it must be owned to Falstaffe's tattered troops. However, by Coppenger's exertions, they were prevail ed upon to brush the rust, venerable from its antiquity, off their musquets, and set their caps a la militaire On the first news of the projected enterprise, ( the mountain travailed long ete it brought forth), the active Governor strained every nerve to put himself in a situation to receive them ; and urged by necessity, by knowing that the critical situation of Spanish affairs in South America would prevent the Governor of Cuba from lending him material aid, he in'a short time put the fort and garrison on a looting so formidable, as to require some thousands of disciplined troops to make any impression upon it. At last the far famed invader came, and Fernandina surrendered to hini without a shot being fired.

L O N D O N , M O N D A Y , 2 7 . OCT. LORD GLENOltCIlY. Sunday last being the day on which Lord Glen- ,> rchy attained his' 21st year, it was ptoposed by several gentlemen ot this city, in compliment to to his Lordship, and in acknowledgement of the polite attention which the Nobie. Family of Breadalbane have long shewn to thejinhabitants of Perth, to celebrate the event by a dinner at the George Inn, on the day following. It was soon found, how ever, that the number of persons, who wished to participate in the rejoicings ot the day, was much greater than could be accommodated in one apartment; and accoroingly two other parties wete speedily foimed, who agreed to dirie, ohe ot them at . he Salutation, and . lie other at the Star Ion. The patties whoassembledon thishappy occasion amount- ... altogether to about 850, and included many of the most respectable inhabitants of Feith.

These wtetched men, though they manifest the utmost penitence and contrition, on account of the crime for which they are to suffer, appear to be under great horror at the prospect of the their approaching fate. On Tuesday the 21st ult. the Synod of Perth and Stilling met in the West Church of this City After sermon by the Hev. W. A. Thomson one of the ministers of the City, in the absence of the Rev. Mr Gray of Kincardine, last Moderator, the Synod made choice of the Rev. Dr Alexander Irvine, minister of Little Dunkeld, to be Moderator for the current half year. The only business of any consequence before the wines weie of the best quality. After the " King," " the Prince Regent," " the Queen and the . est of the Royal family." Piovost Robertson brieflly mentioned the occasion ot the meeting, and toe ciicumstances which led to it ; and concluded with proposing the health of the day " L O R D GLKNOitCHY," which was rapturously drank with thi. ee lilies three, the Band ot the Royal Perthshire Militia, who attended, striking up with admirable effect, " The Campbells are Loming." " His Gtace the Lord Lieutenant ot the County" was next given with equal honours and applause. The other noblenun ot. the County, the E. irl of Kinnoul, the Earl ot Breadalbane, Lord Grey and Lord Lynedoch,- were successively diank, with every demonstration of respect and regard. A s^ teat variety of suitable toasts followed, among which we must not omit to mention, Lady Breadalbane," which was given with some pointed ' woul not ha and well chosen umaiks by Provost Ross. In the course of the eve ing the company were entertained with a vaiiety ot excellent songs by Messrs Taylor and Elder, as well as by the deiightiul and appropriate aiis with which the Band of the Perthshire Militia garnished off the different toasts. The Meeting was conducted with ail the festivity and Harmony which the happy event that had given nee to it naturally inspired. The SAI. UTATIOM being the Inn made use of and patronised by. the Family, Mr Stewait the landlord . ladly availed himself ot so happy an opportunity of estitying his genuine gratitude and respect to his Noble Patron, and evincing by every demonstration , f j iy, how sincerely he wished to promote the festivities ot the day. A temporary rampart was reCted above the loof ot the Great Hall, over which Waved a beau1 it. il flag of immense » ize, exhibiting the Arms of Glenoichy and Bteadalbane, emoiazoned on both sides, in a very ni. steily stik, with the proper motto, and family devices. Upon the rampart were planted several pieces of artilleiy, trom which 21 rounds at noon, announced to the city and countiy aiound the happy event. At the interval ot every seven rounds, a military band from the 78tll and 88th regiments ( detachments ol which are now quaru- ied in this city), as well as H o l l - and pipers, diessed in the national garb, pl ived a salute. When finished, the health ot L O R D GLENORCHY was d a n k - o n the rampart, with " t h ee tunes three.;" and in the true Highland fashion ' he Can and the Cup were dashed on the street, trom on high,: that they might never aftetwards be profaned by vulgar use. At four o'clock a numerous and respectable, party of gentlemen sat down to a most elegant and sumptuous dinner, and the wines were ot rtietvery best quality and flavour. Bailie Alexander M'Farlane in the chair, and Mr Halket, of the customs, croupier. After the cloth was temoved, a number of loyal and appropriate toasts suited to the occasion, were drank with enthusiasm, the music at intervals playing some of our sweetest national airs. In the evening, the whole front of the Salutation was splendidly illuminated, which had a veiy fine effect, and the filing from the cannon was kept up eveiy half hour till midnight, when the company parted, highly giatiiied with the proceedings of the day. At the STAR INN, kept by Mrs M'Dougall ( whose Husband was a Bieadalbane- man,) the scene was equally agreeable and interesting. About 4 o'clock, nearly one hundred and thiity Gentlemen sat down to an elegant and sumptuous Dinner. Besides every other raiity which the Season could yield, there was on the table the venison of a full grown Deer, from the Earl of Breadalbane's Park, withaud concentrated his force and means at Augustine. As the inhabitants i f the t loridas were strongly attached to the Spanish Government, both by the equitable and impartial contiuct of their present governor, and by the remembrance of favours conferred, which strict justice couid have dispensed with, an invading force ought to have made arrangements for obtaining regular supplies,— yet M'Gregor trusted to the hearty assistance of the natives, and of the Indians and slaves, whom the Spaniards have niformiy - reatedwith the greatest justice and humanity. The uriny which he le. d on in the cause ot freedom, to attack a strong fortress, commanded by ail able officer, did not exceed 130 men ! undisciplined and unprovided, and with no artillery, and at a season of the year too w hen the elements would have been more fatal than the Spanish arms. Such were his laud forces,— and the lornudable navy, led by the redoubted Commodore Taylor, con isted of two armed brigs, and a small schooner or two. M'Gregor, with tins contemptible force, had the impudence to declare the extensive coasts of the Florida* in a state of strict blockade— credul Judtcus Apelles ! One would naturally have expected that a man like Coppenger luokea ou quietly at the performance of this farce. But, astonished at these proceedings, and suspecting sliaie, he kept on the detensive, until he was satisfied ol the extent of rhe emancipating force. He is now preparing to attack them ; and M'Gregor has thought it prudent, pretending, no doubt, a higher destination, to give up the command. A successor has been appointed, who will have the pleasure ol being driven '. from Amelia Island, after fighting against " fearful odds," and performing " prodigies ot valour," as the supporting newspaper editors will of course tell us. After laughing at the bursting uf the bubble, now that the green curtain is about to drop, and condoling with those who, upon examining the depth of their purses, find that they have been cumpletely duped, we can only say that it is " a tale told hy an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing," After thus weeping over the unsuccessful attempt of our gallant countryman, 1 may turn to other matteis, and among These to one which tonches the feelings more deeply, the present state of Charlestown. You, living where contagion is unknown, can lorni no idea of the havoc committed in Charlestown by the. yellow fevei. Those who hive lived all their lives ill warm climates, and undergone a thorough seasoning, are as obnoxious to danger at Europeans newly arrived. People in the highest state ol health have been asleep on the second day and whole families hava been cut off ere they c. uld enquire who were suffering besides themselves. There is no business doing, and every tiling preseuts the most doleful appearance'. ' I'he thick vapours which hover o'er the place, seem to be so maiiy shrouds which death is really to spreatl over his victims. This small island is of inestimable value, surrounded by salt water and enjoying the sea breeze', and where sickness is scarcely known, it is the resort, of the Charlesrown people during the tickly season, and hag saved the lives of thousands who would otherwise have been mouldering iu the dust. The Savannah ftveris, with proper attention f- r froul being dangerous; but it certainly hurts ihe constitution. However, by keeping within doors before 10 in the morning, and after 6 at night, and keeping in the shade during the day, it can be avoided." The State Trials at Derby closed on Saturday last. Brandreth, Turner, Ludlam, and Weightman have received sentence of death. The prosecutions of the other prisoners has been abandoned ; and after a situabie admonition they were dismissed from the bar. We received this morning some Madras Papers to the end of April, & Calcutta to the end of March — But they do not, of course, contain such late news as that which has been brought by the dispatches and letters by the Lyra. And from some further letters, which we have seen, we teel ourselves able to state, that the apprehensions at first entertained respecting theMaharatas confedeiacy, have been infinitely too great. Neiher at Madras nor at Bombay were any such alarms entertained. The Peishwa being disposed of, and security . given fo- his futuie conduct, the power of the confederacy will be weakened byperhaps afouith. — The other Mahratta powers ate those of Scindia and Meerkhan, the Berar Rajah and Holkar.— Now, so far from its being ceitain that Scindia and Meerkhan, will join in a war against us, theie is some teason to believe, that they will decline adopting any policy that may render him obnoxious to us.— Will Holkar and tire Berar Rajah alone enter into hostilities against us ? To this question.\ ve aie not yet able to give an answer : but the Pendarees, of course, cannot be suffered to carry oft their predatory excursions. They must be put d€ iwn.— Cow rier.

Courier, to commmunicate ari idea which I have long entertained, and although in the view of some people it may be deemed chimerical, I am nevertheless fully satisfied that were it carried into execution, the advantages tbat would result from it would be almost incalculable. The system of education now generally adopted in the schools of this country is very much improved, and very different from that which was in use about twenty five or thirty years ago ; and this is evidently owing in part to the improvement of school- books, of which there is now so great variety. One school- bonk, however, so so far as 1 know, is still wanting, and that is a Compilation of the Laws of the Country, selected in such a manner and done up in such a way, as to answer the purpose of a common collection, or other book to be read occasionally. Now, Mr Editor, I am sensible tbat this suggestion will be reprobated by some people, but I insist tbat such | a book is imperiously called for.
