Paris, Nov. 29.— Yesterday the King trans- acted business with the Duke of Richelieu. At 2 o'clock his Majesty went to St. Cloud. The Court has gone into mourning for 11 days, on account of the death of the Archduchess Herminoe, wife of the Archduke Joseph. The mourning will'be the lirst six days in black, and the last five days in white-. The obsequies uf the Pere Elysee took place yesterday afternoon at 4 o'clock, in the Church of St. Germain L'Auxerrois, the parish of the Castle. The following is an extract of a letter from Rodez, dated the 20th of November, 1817:— " Since Saturday, the 8th of this mouth, Bastide mid Jausion have been in irons. This rigorous measure had been dispensed with since tbe sentence of death was annulled by the Court of Cassation. The following was the cause of its being resumed : — Madame Jausion, accompanied by a Commissary of Police, obtained permission, on Saturday morning) to see and converse with her husband : their conversation, though re- strained by Ihe presence of a third person, was long and affecting1. When they parted, the public officer having some particular business to attend, left Madame Jausion in a passage. She then said in a tone, of indifference, that she had forgotten something, and requested leave to re- turn lo the cell; the gaoler opened, but he im- immediately perceived that a paper was conveyed into the hands of Jausion. He instantly shut the door, and called for assistance. It was endeavoured to obtain the writing from the pri- soner; he denied having received it. They began to search him, when he put it in his mouth, tore and chewed it, and strove to swallow it.— Only a few fragments, it is said, could be saved. The inhabitants of Rodez are under much ap- prehensions as to the flight of the prisoners; they repeat so often they will escape, that they believe every thing which tends to confirm their opinion. Their fears arise from an inexpressible horror they feel for the crime which has disgraced their town ; they are confounded by it, and in- consolable. Madame Manson is placed in the prison of the Capucins, separated from that of the Cordeliers, where the condemned persons are. You would be astonished yt the particulars I have'received, as lo the impression produced upon the- asseinbly listening to her, by this mys- terious witness. The immense Court of Justice contains above 2000 persons, and a profound silence reigns throughout, the moment she ap- pears. The Judges fear to lose a word, a motion, a sigh, an infection of voice; ' and the dra- matic effect of her manner has left indelible impressions. When interrogated, her agitation is extreme ; and the ambiguous words she utters, are listened to as the oracles of an inspired Prin- cess. The eldest daughter of Bancal has. spo. ken to me a good deal about her father, who poisoned himself in prison, in a way at once horrible and disgusting. The unhappy wretch formed the plan of steeping in urine, in one of his shoes, some penny- pieces which he had, and this pre- paration producing a kind of copperas, he had the resolution to drink it! The mother is now dying.— The woman Ginestel, a witness whose disclosures it was thought would be important, died suddenly. 1 mentioned in my last letter, that additional facts had been obtained, and that a considerable number of fresh witnesses ( amount- ing at present to 80) had made interesting depo- sitions since their first trial. A hat and a seal belonging to M. Fauldes have been brought forward, being found in a garden. Since last night, the rumour is, that Madame Manson has at length spoken without mystery," EAST INDIES. Extract of a Letter from Amboyna, June 17:— On the l7th May, the Commissioners of his Netherland Majesty at Amboyna received a letter from the writer at Saparona, dated the 13th of that month; it was sign- ed by Mrs. Vandenberg, the wife of the Resident This communication, written in great haste, merely stated, that her husband, Mr. Vandenberg, had been seized at the Negree of Haria, or Porto, by the natives, and that, she had in consequence taken refuge in the Fort; the letter finished by requesting that assistance might be . sent from Amboyna without delay. Accordingly, on the morning of the 18th, a party of European soldiers from the garrison, and of European sailors from the line of battle ships, Nasau and Admiral Evers, in all about 150 men, to which were added 50 Javanese troops or upwards, making together a total of 200, or 210 men, including officers," left Fort Victoria, under the com- mand of Major Batjes, for Saparona. The small party went in boats furnished by the Avaugkya of Baroomira, who, with the Rajah Sing Soory, accompanied the expedition ; in the passage when off Hawoko, they fell in with two or three beram prows, and taking the people composing the crew for enemies, they forthwith shot five or six without sem- PROVIDENT BANK FOR SAVING'S. On Monday last, a A'eel tut was held at Air. Robins's Auction Room, in Covent Garden, which was very respectably attended, to consi- der of the propriety of altering the Regulations of the Provident Bank, in conformity with ' In new Act made in favour of Banks for Savings. Mr. Barber Beaumont, the Chairman, i « i an able address, described the progress of the Pro- vident Bank, from its foundation about two- years since, lo the present time. lie said that it had fully answered, and even exceeded the expectations of its promoters; that it had af- forded mutual satisfaction to the Managers and the Depositors; no complaints, no discontents had arisen, but all had gone on in usefulness and harmony. This he attributed to the freedom and sim- plicity of the plan. The depositors, left their money just as they could spare if, and took it away, just as they pleased. The Managers had rejected large sums, which had been offered Hamburgh Papers have arrived to the 22d ult. They contain advices from Algiers to the 5tb of October. The Russians, it appears, who were taken out of the Industry, whose recapture by the Master has been already noticed, are in every respect treated as slaves, except that they are not iu chains; and the Algerines demand 4000 piastres as their ransom. A Hamburgh vessel, named the Reiherstrig, had been released on the application of the English Consul, and sailed with the plague on board, of which two of her crew had died. The piratical squadron which lately appeared in'the Atlantic, intended it was said, to cruise as far as the English Chan- nel. By the last advices, however, from Gib- raltar, it appears that they had passed the Straits again , to the eastward. Two of the ves- sels belonging to it are said to have come as far to tin* northward as the coast of Biscay, and to have captured a Hamburgher. From Stockholm we learn, that tbe enquiry into the affair of the Bank at Malmoe has commenced ; and all per- sons having claims thereon, were directed to present them within two months from the com- mencement of November. Commerce begins to revive in Poland, as in all other quarters, and the present fair at Warsaw is said to be much belter than the last. The King of Wirtemberg has again disappointed the expectations of his subjects. by postponing tbe promulgation of Ihe ne Constitution which has been formed, with- out consulting the States. blance of a trial; subsequent information lias proved! that these men were not foes to the Dutch Government. The party arrived at Saparona on the 20tli of May, and Major Batjes came to the determination of land- ing at that part of Saparona called the Negree Teeauw. The beach of Teeauw is rotten ground, covered with Salaro trees, and amongst them the natives skulked with their muskets ready loaded ; On approaching the shore, they were fired at by the people of Saparona,_ who shewed themselves to be good marksmen, by kill- ing a Lieutenant Munter, and wounding a Lieutenant Schudius, both of the R. N. in the boats : the whole party appeared to have been in great confusion ; the natives permitted them to advance without much re- sistance to- a place called Kayleeo ; they there mads a stand, and firing from behind the trees, killed a number of sailors; and Major Batjes, finding that nothing was fo be done against a hidden enemy, who dealt destruc- tion on every side, retreated precipitately to the beach ; no people having been left, fo look after the boats, they had drifted off to a little distance in deep water, and Major Batjes was shot in endeavouring to get to one of them. A party of European sailors amounting to be- tween 40 and 5o, got into one of oraugkys, which swamped in consequence of its being overladen, and they were all drowned. Of the whole party sent to quell the insurrection, only two officers, a doctor, two midshipmen, and ten or twelve Europeans, reached the Residency of Harookay in safety. One of the officers, Lieutenant Schndrus, is since dead, having been wound- ed in the boat; he did not land. " It appears that the Rajah of Sing Soory landed with a white flag upon his stick, with the hope that the re- bels would listen to him : as he advanced, however, lie was shot through the heart from behind a salaro tree : his slave boy took up the body, and brought it, unmo- lested, to the beach, where a boat belonging to his master was in waiting; the crew expressed the most savage satisfaction when they saw the dead body of the Rajah of Sing Soory, and refused to take it Into the boat, although pressed by the slave boy to do so ; they seized their paddles, and vociferating execrations to the Dutch, made the best of their way to their own Negree. " The causes assigned for this unhappy insurrection are; the paper money, requisitions of men for Java, the President's ordering a woman to be flogged naked in the bazaar, his flogging the Lieutenant Burgher with- out just cause, his making the people furnish fish and sago gratis to the troops, and his trusting too much to Mr. Orneck, his writer. " The names of the officers killed— Major Batjes, of the Engineers ; Captain Stalwan, of the Infantry ; Lieut- Munter, of the R.- N. ; Lieut. De Young, R. N.; Mid- shipmen Anemah, R. N. Lld de Jeud, R. N.; Lieut. Schndrus, wounded, since dead. The heads of the European Officers and men have been stuck upon the end of poles. It has been since ascertained that the natives killed the Resident, his wife and children, to- gether with his writer, Mr. Orneck, And that they were determined neither to give or receive quarter; they hoist the English flag, and have already made two at- tempts against Harwoka, where there are 200 troops. With the exception of the Negree Harooka Proper, the whole of the native of Harooka have joined the people of Saparona ; the whole of the inhabitants at Hila are. likewise understood to he ready for revolt. The soldiers discharged from the English service fire reported to be ringleaders; the Burghers of Saparona likewise take an active part in the insurrection; the re- bels are said lo be greatly in want of ammunition, and have sent for supplies from Ceram; but is does not appear that the people of Ceram have joined the re- bellion." ( Madras Courier, June 3.) The following melancholy particulars of the loss of the Diana, we copy from the Calcutta Government Gazette: " Capt. Lyell left China on the 18th February, and arrived at Malacca on the morning of the 4th of March ; he remained there but a few hours, and made sail in the evening for Madras. Two hours after leaving. Ma- lacca, the ship struck on a rock which is not marked in the charts—- she had then top- gallant sails set, and had been going at the rate of 7 knots. and a half per hour; after Some time she righted and floated again in 10 fathoms. " As it was discovered that she made much water, all sail was set with the view of stranding her, but the laud breeze and the currents opposed this. " Capt. Lyell, who was in a very infirm state of health, remained by the ship to the last, endeavouring to save the people and the property committed to his charge, in the performance of which duty his life fel la sacrifice. About day- break the next morning ( 5th) the Captain and Officers, with a t\ w men, in all 10 persons, were on board when tiie ship filled uncommonly fast, and went down suddenly. At this time the Captain was on the quarter deck with 2 men, and fiom his never rising again, it is supposed he. was forced into the stern windows: the two men who were with him also perished; the re- mainder were saved, some of whom were taken up almost in a lifeless state. " The ship went down in 21 fathoms, about G miles distant from Malacca." June 24.— The rebellion in Cuttack would appear to have been finally quelled by the judicious arrangements of Gen. Sir G. Martindell. July 13.— The 3 " expected Indiamen, Rose, Streatham and Princess Charlotte, anchored in the Roads on Tues- day evening. Detachments of troops for the several regiments on this establishment were landed from them on Wednesday and Thursday, and marched to the de- pots at Poouamalee and the Mount. It is with much concern we state, that considerable sickness has again made its appearance in Allahabad. The patients in hospital of his Majesty's regiments had suddenly increased from 50 to 170, and the number was daily accumulating, from 15 to 20, going daily. The sickness also prevails, as last year, amongst the natives. A private letter from the Hague gives the following account of the fracas between the King of the Netherlands and his son;—" You are aware that the King and the Prince of Orange are 011 very bad terms. The King had placed on active service 43 Officers who served in the French army at the battle of Waterloo, 011 con- dition that they should be sent to the Colonies. The Prince insisted that four of his friends should be employed in the Netherlands, although his Majesty desired that his order might be carried into effect.— This the Prince opposed, and, it is said, that he refused lo visit the Hague unless his wish was complied with, and was in consequence dismissed from his situation as Commander- in- Chief. It was every day expect ed that the Prince would go to the Hague, and that if he did so, his mother and grand- mother would soon effect a reconciliation; but at pre- sent he says, that the Princess of Orange is un- well. The Prince has given his protection very inconsiderately, and his unbecoming obstinacy is censured by every oue," them, and confined their Bank to the receipt of small savings, their object having been to hus- band the small sums, which otherwise might be wasted, and when a round sum was accumulated, to make the Depositor an independent Stock holder, by investing the stock in bis own name ill the Public Funds. Upwards of four hundred Depositors had been benefited by the Institution. They had paid in small sums upwards of three thousand pounds. Part of this had been in- vested for them in their own names iif the Bank ; another part had been drawn out, and 2150/. remained in the hands of the Treasurers. The whole expence of conducting the Bank for nearly two years, including that of opening it, was under 30/. He described several interesting cases which had arisen under the eye of the Managers of the Bank, exemplifying the good effects of the Institution upon the morals and happiness of the lower orders. Some persons heated with liquor, who were brought to the Bank by their more sober companions, and in- duced to deposit a shilling or so almost as a jest, afterwards abandoned drinking and extravagance, and became regular depositors. They found as much room for emulation and rivalry in trying who could shew the best Bank account, as be- fore they had felt in shewing who could spend the most money in drinking and dress. Happy ( he exclaimed) are those sons of industry whom any circumstances withdrew from the atmosphere of a dram shop to that of a Saving Bank; the former only raises the feverish pleasures of a maniac at the moment, while it poisons the spring of life for ever after ; the other raises a genuine cheerfulnes immediately, and lays an exccllent foundation for permanent independence and happiness. In illustration of the effect of the Bank in raising men's minds, as well as means, above a dependence 011 parish aid, he instanced the conduct of the industrious poor of the parish during the last winter. A large subscription had been raised to assist the poor inhabitants who had not claimed parish relief. Among the claimants on this subscription, amounting to some hundreds, not one had ever been a depo- sitor in the Bank, although many had made between two and three guineas a week during ihe spring and summer. Among those who had been depositors were many poor artisans, who were compelled to draw out lor their support in the winter what they had previously saved. Not one of these would accept of the subscrip- tion although it was offered to them. Mr. Beaumont afterwards pointed out, in a very clear manner, the advantages given by the new Act passed in aid of Provident Institutions, or Banks for Savings, and recommended that the Rules of the Institution should be altered in con- formity therewith. Mr. Few, in proposing such an alteration in the Rules as to render them accordant with the provisions of the new Act, wished it to be clearly understood, that such alterations were not suggested to supply any deficiency that was felt under the existing regulations. T hey an- swered all the very useful objects which they had in view, and had left nothing to desire.— The Legislature, however, had, in ils wisdom and bounty, passed an Act, offering advantages to Banks for Savings, upon the condition of their complying with certain provisions. It was lo enable the depositors to receive the full benefit of these lhat the alterations were proposed. Mr. Croughton, in proposing thanks fo the Chairman, passed.- a handsome eulogium 011 his talents and perseverance in rendering Banks for Savings extensively useful, which was adopted unanimously. The following passage from the conclusion of Ihe Preface to the Rev. R. Warner's Sermons just published, " Old Church of England Prin- ciples, opposed lo the New Light," involves matter of vital importance to ihe unity, integrity, and welfare of the Established Church : " It is a notorious fact that a very large Fund is at this moment applied and applicable, to the purchase of Livings for Clergy of this description; and it is equally certain that a considerable number of the. young Can- didates for Orders, in Ihe present day, are deeply imbued with evangelical principles. The effects pro- duced by these erroneous notions 011 die individuals themselves, and on the congregations to which they preach them are no less manifest and mournful. In the one ease they have been evinced by the Secession of Messrs. Baring, Snow, Evans, Cowan, & c. from tbe Church, of which they were ministers ; and in theother they are seen in family divisions, and interruption" of good neighbourhood in spiritual pride and want of charity ; in austerity and gloom. Oue prescription alone, seems to promise an eventual, at least, if not an immediate cure for the malady; a step which I doubt not tbe wisdom of their Lordships the Bishops, and the discretion of their examining Chaplins, have already suggested, or will hereafter apply. It is this: that the Candidates for Holy Orders bestrictly aud particularly examined 011 these important points— the extent of the corruption of human nature; the degree ofthe operation ofthe Holy Spirit on the human heart; the universality ofthe offer of salvation; regeneration, as connected with baptism, and distinguished from conversion; conversion, its nature and process; election and re- probation, whether or not partial and personal; grace, whether or not it may be finally lost; and good works, whether or not an absolute condition of salvation; and that such Candidates whose unequivocal declara- tions 011 these points did not accord with the scriptural, reasonable, and long acknowledged principles of the Church of England, be refused ordination into her Mini- stry. The 1 emedy may, perhaps, appear to some to be severe; but certain I am, that it is not so bad as the disease. At ail events, I consider myself as having done my dnty, in most humbly hinting at it ; and, iu this point, liiiay have the satisfaction of saying, with the old 1 schoolmen, Liberavi Animam meam." NEWSPAPERS. Ireland.— The following Documents respect- ing tlie Circulation of Newspapers,, which w< have extracted from The Dublin Evening Post. are highly honourable to the Postmasters- Gene ral, and are so important to the Public, that \\< deem it our duty to insert them. We presume that similar regulations have been transmitted to all the Surveyors and Deputy Postmasters in litis Country :-— To all Surveyors and Deputy Postmasters. NEWSPAPERS. " The Postmasters- General find, with, great concern, notwithstanding the repealed orders which have been issued to their Deputies, re- specting Newspapers, and the arrangements which they have from time to time made to se- cure their punctual dispatch from hence, that the Editors of Public Prints have reason to com- plain of the irregular delivery and suppres- sion of them. Whether such failure is attribu- table to the persons entrusted by the Editors to bring their papers to this Office— whether it can be justly brought in charge against Deputy- Postmasters, or ascribed to any persons connect- ed with them, who from unjustifiable curiosity open and mislay Public Prints, or whether with or without permission from their owners, they suffer persons to have access to their Offices, and to open, resd, or take them away, either for their own use, or for the alleged purpose of de- livering the prints to the Subscribers, to whom they may be addressed, the Postmasters General cannot with certainty determine ; but they con- sider it to be their imperative duty to establish j the strictest regulations to guard against the re- j petition of an evil which, from numerous com- plaints, it is evident must exist to a great de- gree. A Newspaper once confided to the Post- Office, is as sacred, in the eyes of the Post- mas- ters- General, as a Letter, and it cannot be pur- loined, tampered with, or abused, without vio- lating Ihe solemn obligation which every person entrusted with the Public Correspondence, is bound by. Although Newspapers do not yield j Postage, their uninterrupted circulation is im- j mediately connected with the Privilege of Par- liament, and while they contribute largely to the Finances of the Country, through another branch of the Revenue, the Stamp Office, the Postmas- ters- General are not umindful that the Property thus contributing to the Slate belongs to indivi- duals, whose interest cannot be infringed upon without lessening The Public Revenue. The Postmasters- General therefore desire, from hence- forth— " 1st.— That where a Postmaster, on opening his Mail, shall find that any Paper which he thinks should have reached his Office has not arrived, he will, by Let- ter, acquaint tiie Secretary with the circumstance, and the name of the Subscriber whose Paper may appear to be. missing. " 2il.— No Paper is to be delivered but to the Sub- scriber, or to his Messenger or Servant, known to be such. " 3d.-— That under. no pretence, either with or with- out the consent of a Subscriber, shall a Deputy open ALARMING FIRE AT THF COLLEGE. Edinburgh, Nor. 29.— On Tuesday illuming, a little i 0 o clock, fire was observed issuing from the roof of the College, on the north- west quarter, which sud- denly assumed an alarming and threatening appearance. The tire engines were speedily brought to, the spot, and ( he supply of water, though at first limited, was, by the unremitted exertions of many respectable gentlemen and otheis, procured in sufficient quantities, adequate to the demand of all the engines. By the strenuous exer - tions of the firemen, aided by the direction of several of the professors, the flames were rapidly got under, and the fire completely subdued in the space of two hours. The interior of the apartment, however, in which it was confined, is entirely destroyed. The Magistrates, Pro. lessors, students, and gentlemen in the neighbourhood, rendered everv assistance; and the attention of the High Constables and the Superintendent, of Police, to- gether with a detachment of the 88th regiment front the garrison, which was directed in keeping the communi- cation open from the College to the several fire- cocks, was of the first importance, and tended greatly to faci. litMe the extinction of the destructive element. The roof was under repair, but from what cause the tire ori- ginated we believe has not yet been ascertained. The engine belonging to the Royal Exchange Assurance, which now stands at Leith, was on the first alarm ire- ' mediately dispatched from thence, with its firemen, bv the Agents. Messrs. Thomsons and Pollock. _ During the fire, Mr. Playfair, the engineer, was diS1- tinguislied by his anxiety and intrepidity on the occa- sion. Hurrying from some distance, on the first alarm. he was soon on the roof, directing the Operations of tie firemen; and, when part of it was broken in, he de- scended into the part. on f. te, with a rope fastened his body, and the pipe of one of the engines in his hand and this intrepid example being followed by several of the firemen and others. the water was soon made play with more powerful effect upon the part of the building which was in flames. Accident.— A shocking accident occurred on Blackfriars- bridge on Tnusdav to a boy appa- rently about 14 years of < ige, who was endeavour- ing to draw a loaded truck up the bridge. The poor boy had made several ineffectual attempts to perform his task, but the burden exceeded his strength. A coal- waggon passing at the time, he endeavoured to cast a piece of line, which was attached to the handle of the truck, over : hook in the hind part of the waggon; unfor- unately, however, he failed in bis attempt, ami lie hook caught his Wrist, and penetrated brought it; be was dragged several yards bc- ' ore his situation was discovered; when he was released, his arm was lacerated in a shocking manner, and bled profusely ; he was taken to a surgeon in the neighbourhood, who applied something to stop the blood, and advised that he poor boy should be conveyed to the hospi- tal, which was done accordingly. Shocking Accident. - Sunday evening, as Mr. Smether, of Iver- place, Chelsea, was returning home in a single horse chaise, accompanied bv Mr. Tolley, bis friend, the vehicle was rt( n against a turnip- waggon placed on the off- side of the road, and it was overturned and literally dashed in pieces. The accident happened within a few hundred yards of Hammersmith- turnpike. We regret to state that Mr. Tolley was not expected to live on Tuesday morning, and Mr. Smether had his ancle- bone broken.— They had dined together at a friend's house at and read a Newspaper, previous to its being delivered to the Owner, and, of course, from under his official care. If Subscribers are willing that Postmasters should have the benefit of reading their Papers, it must be after, not while they have official custody of them. " 4th.— That no Deputy will, under any authority, either written or verbal, permit any Paper to be opened, and read by any Person but the Subscriber t>> whom it is addressed. If Subscribers are willing to permit Per- sons to read their Paper, it must be after the Post- Office has discharged ils duty in delivering it tothemselvesor their Messenger, known to be such. Post Offices must not be converted into Reading Rooms. Such a prac- tice, while it must add to, if not create, the very evil complained of, affords the same advantages with Sub- scribers to Persons who thereby contribute nothing either to the Post Office, the Stamp- Office-, or the Edi- tor. Deputy Postmasters must not be agents iu acts which have a direct tendency to injure one branch of the public Revenue, aud by curtailing the circulation of Newspapers, interfere with the interest of tbe Press.

Easter.— The Act of ihe 24th George II, which is the authority respecting the time of Easter, provides, that " Easter shall be the first Sunday after the full moon, which happens upon or next after the 21st day of March ; " but, in- stead of referring the nation toanv other method of calculation, it also provides, that " Easter shall be observed according to the new kalendar tables and rules annexed" to the Act. These tables, 1S. C. are such as have been inserted at the beginning of our Common Prayer Books, printed since the year 1752. Two of the tables contain rules. for finding Easter: according to both of which the paschal full moon for 1818 happens 011 t lie 21 st March, which is a Saturday, and of course Easter is the following day, name- ly, the 22d- But il is noted in the Almanacks, that the full moon will happen on the 22d. hi explanation ot which verbal inconsistency il should be understood, that there is a difference between the ecclesiastical full moons and the real full moons: the former are computed bv the golden number, according lo the rule laid down in the tables, and authoiised by the Act of Parliament, as before stated ; the latter are calculated 011 different principles, and the astronomical result is in fact more correct. A Slip of the Tongue.— The late Dr. Hunter used to relate the following anecdote. - A Lady in advanced age and declining state of health, went , by the advice of her physician' to take lodgings in a village nearly adjoining to the me tropolis. She agreed for a suite of rooms, and coming down stairs, observed that, the balus- trades were much out of repair; " these" said the Lady, must be mended, before I can think of coming to live here." •' Oh, no Madam," re plied the landlady, that would answer NO pur pose, as the undertaker's men, in bringing down the coffins, would break them again immediately." Heston, Middlesex, and the horse was trotting at the rate of twelve miles an hour when the accident happened. On Thursday se'nnight, Ihe Rev. Mr. M. and his lady ( the daughter of the late Sir B.— W.—) intended lo make a visit a few miles off for the day. On the morning, however, Mrs. M- was unwilling to go, observing, that having had a restless night, she wished not to come down stairs till three o'clock. They parted in kind- ness, and Mr. M. went his journey. At that time, when the maid knocked at her lady's door, she received 110 answer; the door was forced open. A - dreadful spectacle now pre- sented itself-— the lady suspended from the head of the bedstead, lifeless. On the table was a letter for Mr. M.— It was written with kindness, its chief purpose was to suggest to him a me- thod of concealing the tragical event, by saying that she died in the night of an apoplectic fit. Mr. M. did not return- till the following morning; all ihe horrors of his situation we attempt not to depict.— The lady was interred in the neighbour-, ing church, last week, the Coroner's jury having found a verdict of insanity ; and our worthy Bishop officiated the following Sunday, for the afflicted husband,— Cheltenham Paper. Our readers probably remember an account • which we gave some time since, of three bees being found alive in a solid stone, at Liverpool. The following explanation ofthe circumstance we now copy from the same Paper as contained the original statement: — " The following statement will probably elu- cidate this strange phenomenon:— As soon as we heard of the above circumstance, which oc- curred 011 Saturday, the 1st ult. we went on the Tuesday morning following to inspect the stone iu which ihe bees, as they are called, had been lodged, but it had, about an hour before, been put into the barge, for the purpose of being taken to another part of the dock. In our in- quiries of Mr. Dowell, the master mason, the person who had the bees in his possession, whe- ther any crevice had been observed 011 the out- side of the stone, by which they could have gained access to the abode in which they were found, he could give us N0 certain information on this point, neither negatively nor affirmatively. But lie showed us a stone of the exact descrip- tion of the one in question, in which there was what he called a ' sand- hole,' filled with loamy sand, which extended from the surface to ti e depth often inches into the stone. This loamy road, il is conjectured, would after being ex- posed to Ihe air, became sufficiently dry to be1 capable of removing itself on the least change of situation in the stone, and thereby excavating a hole such as had been found in the stone where the bees were discovered. As soon as we hud ascertained this fact, our wonder in the preced- ing statement ceased, as we think that of our readers will also, after they have read this ar- ticle; this will also account for our not baring before noticed the circumstance. The stone from which the bees were taken had been some weeks lying at the quarry for transmission to this place. In the early part of September we had some sharp frosts, and it is not improbable the bees had sheltered themselves in the cavern in which the masons had found them, from the inclemency of the weather at that time. When they were first discovered, we understand, they ere in a state of torpor, b„ t the warmth of Mr. Lowell's pocket, in which they had been placed,' completely reanimated them."— Liverpool Paper T LONDON, FRIDAY, DECEMBER •"> 1017. Charleston Papers arrived on Thursday to the • 29th of October. They contain several articles relative to the state of affairs in Amelia Island. The Patriots, it appears, had split into factious; Commodore Aury, with the French Adventurers, being on one side, and Sheriff Hubbard and the American seamen on the other. A Proclamation of Anry's on the 14th ascribes this dissension to Spanish perfidy, and alludes to a horrid plot, the particulars of which are not stated. On the 15th an arrangement was formed, which exclud ed the military from civil power; but it was ap- prehended that the latter would again obtain the ascendant, unless their opponents received a reinforcement. The quarrel between the par- ties, it was supposed, would not terminate with- out bloodshed. The Christopher, Row, of Liverpool, which arrived at Charleston on the 11th of October, was seized for a breach of the American Navigation Act, in having 12 pipes of Madeira wine on board. The Act„ it will be recollected, was passed on the 1st of March, hut with the view of giving ample notice to foreign countries of the new system, was not to take effect until the Ist of October. Some American seamen, who had belonged to an Insurgent privateer, and were captured on board one ofl iier prizes, are said to be treated with great in- humanity by the Governor of the Havannah. Commodore Taylor, when off that place, on his voyage to St. Domingo, had in vain solicited their release. Some of their companions, who were British subjects, had been delivered up to one of our frigates. At Savannah, from the 1st to the 30th of Oc- tober, 50 persons, died of fever, of whom 32 were . seamen. A Mail arrived on Thursday from Holland. The contents ofthe Papers bv it are not very important. The Duke of Wellington still con- tinues at his head- quarters. Numerous fetes are given at Mont St. Marie, of which the Duchess < hres the honours, and to which many considera- ble personages from the neighbourhood are in- vited. A new, Bishop is soon expected to be nominated bv the Pope, on the recommendation of the King, to the Bishoprick of Ghent. The nomination of one for Liege is also soon expect- ed. The Ex- Arch- Chancellor Cambaceres still resides at Brussels, where he supports several of bis fellow- countrymen who are in less affluent circumstances. On the 13th ult. a new frigate, the Scheldt, of 44 guns, was launched from the Royal Dock at Rotterdam. Two of the first houses at Copenhagen have stopped payment. One has been established ever since the year Id tfi: the fall of one of these houses is caused by the unfortunate results of ihe West India trade, and. the second by occurrences in Nor- way. Tile Court of Wirtemberg went into mourning on the 18th ult. for a month on ac- count of the death of the Princess Charlotte. Bath, Wednesday Morning, Dec. 3. — The over- earnest curiosity of the company, on Mon- day, was very unpleasant to the Queen. She particularly noticed one person, who continued staring in Iter face through an eye- glass, all the time she was in the room, and in consequence the Masters of the Ceremonies were in the room at art early hour yesterday morning, endeavour- ing to impress upon every peison who entered, t he propriety of avoiding such open manifesta- tions of mere curiosity . Their remonstrances pro- duced the desired effect, for on thearrival ofthe Duke of Clarence, the company remained in groupes at each end < rf the room, leaving the middle of it entirely clear. The Princess Eliza- beth, attended by tiie Countesses of Ilchester and Melville, entered the room about her accus- tomed hour, and the Queen arrived in her state chair almost immediately afterwards. There were present to meet her Majesty the Hon. Mrs. Poulett, the Hon. Miss Broderick, the Earl of Winchelsea, Sir Henry Campbell, Gene- ral Johnson, Captain Poulett, & c. & c. Her Ma- jesty appeared pleased with the restrained curi- osity of tiie company, and, after drinking the wa- ter, and conversing a few minutes with the two ladies she retired to lieT chair, and returned to her house. At about two o'clock the Royal parly- took a carriage airing, in a landau and four, through the principal streets in the upper part of the town, but they were not out more than an hour. Afterwards, the Princess Elizabeth repair- ed to the Hot Bath, attended by Lady Ilchester. In the course of the morning, the Marchioness of Bath anil one of the Ladies Thynne arrived at Ihe Queen's house; and at half- past four o'clock, Sir Henry Halford arrived from Windsor. He will return to Windsor Castle on Friday, to be present at the Queen's Council on Saturday next, and the Earl of Winchelsea will leave the Queen's house for the same purpose on Thursday. After the breaking up of the Council, he will return lo Bath to lay their report before her Majesty. At six o'clock, yesterday evening, her Majesty had a dinner party. There were present, besides those persons immediately in attendance, the Marchioness of Bath and Lady Thynne, Lord Winchelsea, Sir Henry Campbell, Sir H. Halford, Captain Poulett, and the Honourable Mrs. Poulett. L The Calcutta Government Gazette of the 29th May contains some very curious and interesting information from Persia. It seems that Russia has of late exerted herself to conciliate the Per- sian Nobility. The Embassy to Terhaun is spoken of as conspicuously splendid. His Ex- cellency General Germaloff had reached Erwan on his route to the Persian capital. Tiie best informed men, however, conceived that the ne- gotiations and conferences would terminate in war. The Wahabees let slip no opportunity of dis- tinguishing- themselves by acts of cruelty and piracy. Their Chief continues to be sorely pressed by the Turkish troops of the Pasha of Egypt, at no great distance from the capital of the former. He however defends himself to the last extremity. Daood Pasha has lately ascended the Musnud of Bagdad, by the ordinary expedient of mur- dering his predecessor. The most important feature in the intelligence from Persia is - the expected arrival in that country of a number of French officers front Paris. A Colonel Morcier, of the cavalry, and Capt. Hubert, had made their way already; but Ihe new employment cut out for them by their Government at home may supersede their enterprises in the eastern as well as in the western hemisphere. The two officers above- mentioned presented them selves to the Prince Heir Apparent, attired, in rich uniform. In a short conversation they entirely won the heart of his Royal Highness, and obtained his permission for their brethren at Paris to make part of the army of Persia.— The Prince, however, at the same time declares, that he would not have given encouragement to Frenchmen, had British subjects been allowed to serve under Persian colours. His Persian Majesty was at the capital in April last, waiting the arrival of the Russian Embassy, for whose reception he had made the most splendid pre- parations. Recent accounts from Malta state, that the ' Weymouth store- ship, Mr. Turner, had sailed from that island for Tripoli, to receive on board the curiosities collected at Lebida ( the site of the ancient Carthage), and destined for the Prince Regent by the Bey. They are represented as highly valuable and curious, consisting of massy columns of porphyry, statuary, and other fragments of ancient art. This collection has been made under direction of Capt. Smyth of the Royal navy, who has been some time em ployed in surveying that, part of the African coast, and is frequently with the Bey, by whom he is allowed a guard of janissaries in his several journies through the country. At one of his audiences the Bey of Fezzan was present; and he related to Captain Smyth, that about 17 years since, an Englishman travelled wilh him lo the southward of Fezzan, and was taken ill on the road of a fever, which caused his death, and he afterwards saw him buried. This person, there can be no doubt was Mr. F. Horneman, the son ofa German clergyman, employed by the Society for making discoveries in the interior of Africa As in the case of Park, no intelligence of this traveller had been received during the period before mentioned ; and as he was known, to have been in the direction stated by the Bey of Fezzan, no doubt of his death exists, especially as the period of his disappearance exactly corresponds with the alledged time of his decease-. Earl Poulett, Lord Lieutenant of the County of Somerset, who was expected here on Monday, to pay his respects to her Majesty, is confined to his room by indisposition, at his seat near Ilchester. The first ball of the season, at the Kingston, or Lower Rooms, took place last night, and it was much more numerously attended than it has been upon any occasion, for the last ten years. It was expected that the Countess Poulett would have done Mr. Marshall the. honour of investing him with the insignia of his office, as Master of the Ceremonies, but this was prevented by the indisposition of the Noble Earl ; and the cere- mony was performed by Lady Tuite. Mr. Mar- shall entered the Assembly Room, supported by General Johnson and Captain Cockburn, prece- ded by Mr. Mills, the Renter of the Rooms, bearing ( lie insignia upon a rich velvet cushion, and followed by ihe Committee, Sir W. Wynne, General Sir W. Cockburn, Captains Conolly and Flinn, R. N. Captain Johnson, Messrs. De Burgh, Leir, Gardner, and Browne, the officers of the 15th Hussars, and of the 38th Regiment. The procession having reached Lady Tuite, she very gracefully took the insignia from the cushion, and placing it round the neck of Mr. Marshall, wished he might long retain Ihe honour. Mr. Marshall thanked her Ladyship, and added, that he hoped his exertions would prove him worthy of- it. The dancing then commenced, when many a " bevy of fair dames" were seen " lo skim along and swell the mazy dance, disclosing mo- tion in its every charm."— The fine Band ofthe 38th Regiment attended, and occasionally re- lieved the harmony of the Orchestra by Ihe ex- hilarating clish of martial music. Precisely at twelve o'clock the music ceased, and the com - pany gradually retired. The medallion, tirade use of upon this occasi- on, is the identical one which, at these original rooms, was presented to Capt. Wade, and for which six hundred pounds were subscribed. It is worn suspended bya broad garter blue ribbon. It is of gold and blue enamel, enriched with brilliants.— In the centre is a raised figure of Venus, bearing in one hand the apple awarded her on Mount Ida, and in the other a rudder, with the inscription of " Venus decons." The reverse, a broad wreath of laurel, and inscribed, " Arbiter Elegantiarum." COURT OF KING'S BENCH, DEC. !. VIOLENT ASSAUI. T.— The King v. Clark. Mr. Scarlett, for the prosecution, stated that this wasaease of considerable importance. it was an in- dictment preferred by Mary Ann, the. wife of Joseph Webb, against the defendant Clark, for an assault upon her, with an intent to violate her person. The prosecu- tor was a gold and silver chaser, residing in Clerkenwell; the defendant was a hair- dresser, keeping a shop on Clerkenwell- green ; and the alleged offence was Com- mitted on the 21st January last. The Learned Counsel then proceeded to state the case at length, arid called the following evidence. W. Dewing saw Mrs. Webb on the 21st of January last, iu the early part of the day) before twelveo'elock ; witness saw her again in the overling, when she was in strong fits; in the morning she was in good health. In the evening, when witness saw her at her own house, a young woman, named Mary Smith, the prosecutor, Mr. Shipman, an apothecary, and defendant, wcje pre- sent. The defendant was accused of treating Mrs. Webb in a. Most improper and indecent manner. He denied the charge ; and said, " Upon nit honour, Gen- tlemen, I only put my arm round her thus." He then put his arm round the waist of Mary Smith, but did it in so indecent a manner, that witness observed, " If you had served a sister of mine so, I would have knock- ed you down." The defendant said several limes over, that he was sorry for what he had done. Mary Ann Webb, the prosecutrix, a young woman of decent and interesting appearance, was then culled, who stated that she residedat No. 10, St. James's- walk,' within a few yards of the defendant. On the 21st of January last she called at defendant's shop in the mora, iug and left some false hair to be dressed ; , she did not see the defendant, but saw his man and left it with him; it was to be done by five o'oloek in the afternoon. About a quarter before five she went for it, the defendant was then, at hqme and entered into conversation with her, telling her she had ( letter have her own hair dressed. The witnesssaiil it would occupy too long a time ; the defendantsaid it would not'take'long, and lve would do It in the best manner be could, and desired witness would go into the back shop to have it done. She ac- cordingly went into the back shop, when defendant im- mediately shut the door upon her and seizing her round the waist kissed tier, and attempted to put his hand down her bosom ; she had a pelisse buttoned tight down the front, which prevented him; she told him he ought to be ashamed of himself, and desired him to desist; he however threw her down on the floor, and proceeded to take the most indecent liberties with her person ; she resisted with all her force till she fainted, and know- nothing more till she recovered, in consequence of de- fendant's throwing water on her face. She begged of him to let her go, when he opened the door and told her she might go. She went home immediately, and her husband being at home, she told him how she had been used. Her husband went immediately, accompanied by Mr. Price, their landlord, to the defendant's, and whilst he was gone the witness fainted again, and con- tinued in fits for several hours. At this time she had been married about three months and was pregnant; she miscarried two days after. Witness was about 18 years of age ; the defendant was 50. Cross- examined by Mr. Gurney— Witness acknow- ledged, that when about 13 she was sent by her father to the Refuge for the Destitute, in consequence of hav ing taken a paper of halfpence from her master. She had been once before committed for pilfering; she was two two years at the Refuge for the Destitute, and when she was discharged, had a box of clothes and a guinea given her, as a reward for her good conduct; a place was also procured for Iter, and she continued at service till she married. Joseph HoskinS Superintendant of the female depart- ment of the Refuge for the Destitute, proved, that the prosecutrix was there for two years; during which time she was instructed in all her moral and religions duties. He bore ample testimony to her good conduct whilst in the Institution, and that at her discharge she was re- warded with the fullest marks of good condilct, and provided with a service. Joseph Webb, the husband, stated, that he was at home when his wife went out oil the day in question, and on her return ; she was absent about an hour, namely, from a quarter before five till a quarter before six; when she came home, she was in a fainting state, and fell almost lifeless into his arms. She told trim what had passed, and he immediately went to the defendant's house. Defendant came to the prosecutor's house about half an hour after. Mrs. Webb was at this time again in strong frs. He their said he, was sorry for what he had done, and described how lie had put his arms round lie! waist. The prosecutrix's fits were so violent, that she bit her tongue through, and her face was covered with blood. Mr. G, Shipman, surgeon and apothecary, in Ayles- bury- street, deposed, that he was sent for to attend the prosecutrix ; he found her in strong hysterics, lying on Ihe floor; he attended her for some days, during which time she miscarried. The agitation of mind under which she was when he was sent for, from whatever cause it might arise, was sufficient to cause a miscar- riage. He had attended her ever since at intervals, her nerves having been extremely out of order. He attended her not more than a week ago. This ended the prosecutor's case. Mr. Gurney addressed the Jury on the part of the defendant, arid called several witnesses to prove the prosecutrix to he a young woman of light character. Mr. Scarlett replied, and the Learned Judge, Mr. Justice Holroyd, summed up, when the Jury, without hesitation, found the defendant Guilty.— The trial oc- cupied the Court from one o'clock till six in the evening. ABUSE IN THE POLICE, Mansion- House.— Mr. Sheriff Alderson, attended by Mr. Brown, keeper of Newgate, appeared oil Monday to state a complaint of a very serious nature against a city officer. The Sheriff said, he felt much- pain at being obliged to prefer a charge against one of tin; city police of a most nefarious description. If there appeared to the Lord Mayor no ground for the accusation, of course the character of the officer could not at all be affected; a! the same time that the acknowledged frequency oi the practice to which lie alluded would justify tiie she- riff'bringing forward a case, which, if proved, would, exhibit a most disgraceful custom. The only authority he had to go upon in the present charge was the mere declaration of a convict under sentence of transporta- tion in Newgate, who stated, that the officer who ap- prehended her had deprived her of every thing she was worth in the world, it » conformity with the custom of stripping prisoners, which had existed a long time, and been abused most shamefully. The Sheriff added, that ever since he had come into office his mind had been directed to this subject, having learned from a source, the correctness of which he had no reason to question, that there were nearly an hundred cases of a similar kind, in which policc-' officers of almost every district were accused of being concerned. The Lord Mayor would see the necessity of opposing a check to the A letter from Bath, of the 3d instant, says.— ' I heard that our Rector went last Sunday to read prayers and preach before the Queen; but lo! lie had forgotten his sermon, and was oblig- ed to dispatch a messenger for it, which caused a delay of half an hour; this was after he had finished prayers." Prince Leopold leaves Claremont in a few days for Weymouth. He will resident Gloucester Lodge, in which apartments are preparing for his reception. His Serene Highness will after- wards return to Saxony, for two or three months, on a visit to his family. We extract the following article from a Morn- ing Paper:—" On an early day after the meeting of Parliament, Addresses will be moved for in both Houses, entreating the Prince Regent to take into his consideration ihe prospect of the Throne of these kingdoms. We understand that no specific proceeding will be suggested to his Royal Highness; the general subject will be merely recommended to his serious attention. It is obvious, that there are several measures which may arise out of this; the unbiassed choice of his Royal Highness will direct what they shall be." Expeditious Criticism.— The Morning Chro- nicle of Wednesday qqotes the sentiments of a Scots Critic upon Mr. Godwin's novel of Man- deville. The work was published on Monday | ast.— Query ; How was it conveyed to Scot- land, read by the said Scots Critic, reviewed by him, and his review transmitted to the Morning Chronicle, in eight and forty hours ] Perhaps, the Scots Critic is only a Scotsman in London; but even then if he really read the book, he would be a troublesome ' subscriber to a circu- lating library. LUCIEN BUONAPARTE. Rome, Nov. 8.— Lucien Buonaparte and his family suddenly returned this morning to Rome from their seat Rufinella, near Frascati. The following was the occssion of it:— Yesterday afternoon; about four o'clock, Monseigneur Cnnes, Editore di Nicola, a relation of the Buonaparte family, who paid a visit to Lucien at Rufinella, went to take a walk to Tusculem, to view the excavations making there, when he was suddenly stopped lry several men, and beaten and wounded. They consulted together whe- ther Ihey should kill him or carry him off, but kept him in their power about half an hour after sunset. As Lucien's family were sitting down to table, Monsieur Cunes was missed, and servants with torches sent out in search of him. They went to Tusculem, and loudly called his name; meantime, however, the robbers pro- ceeded against the house, and seized Lucien's Secretary, M. Chatilien, and two servants ( pro- bably they took the Secretary for his master) and carried him off. M. Cunes had the good fortune to escape during the tumult. This morning it was reported that the notorious robber Barbone, of Villetri, had made this at- tempt with 27 of his gang ; but according to Ihe testimony of some of Lucien's people, there were only six men dressed as peasants, without shoes, and with soles tied on ( Cioccie), such as the very poorest class usually wear. The Papal Government congratulates itself that Lucien escaped- What a mass of suspicion would have been raised against il, and what political con- jectures would have been , excited among the half, or ill- informed, by Lucien's disappearance, and till he was found again. We just learn, that the robbers, perceiving their mistake in the person, have sent word that they will be con- tented wilh 3,000 Roman crowns for the ransom of their prisoners. The Cardinal, Secretary of State, does every thing in his power to remedy this want of public security, but he is not duly supported, and it is to be apprehended, that the Gens d'Armes ( or Carabiniers), who are still young,' and the many raw soldiers, do not pro- 1' ieed with sufficient activity. by law, that in eases of conviction, such property as he hail described short! J be handed over to the Sheriff's as a forfeiture, and that lo the acquitted a restoration of their goods should be made upon the establishment of their innocence. There was ground for supposing that a system of illegal appropriation existed with re- spect to the property of persons in both situations; and as the best way to commence an effectual check, would be to selecta case for investigation, hr had accordingly done so from the very large list with which he had been furnished. The Lord Mayor approved highly of the zeal of the Sheriff in circumstances of such deep interest to the public, and ordered that the. officer accused should at- tend and answer to the charge. Mr. Brown read from the above- named list filenames of the prisoner aud the officer. We suppress the name of the officer until a general investigation shall have taken place. That of the. convict is Sarah Margaret Austen. She is now in Newgate, and has returned an account of duplicates, of clothes, & c. to a small amount, comprising however, almost the whole of her covering, and4s,( id in silver, which shedeclared were taken from her by the officer, and of w hich it was found, upon in- quiry, no return had been made at the Old Bailey. The officer, on being called upon by the Lord Mayor said, the prisoner who had thus complained of him had robbed a sergeant of £ 50. or .£" 60. and had not so much . silver in her pocket, upon being apprehended, as that sum, there b " ing actually no more than 2s. 6d. with the duplicates. He had " redeemed the articles for 17s. but not being able lo dispose of them to advantage any where else, he returned them to the pawnbroker, who gave him a guinea in exchange,. The Lord Mayor asked what be had done with the money, to which lie was not entitled by law. He replied that he had been at the expe « ce of prose- cuting the owner, the poor sergeant not having had it in his power to do so, and that he was authorised, bv one who was qualified to issue Ojders in such a case, to keep the profits of the search as a recompence for his. trouble. The Lord Mayor said it was impossible that such conduct, upon the part of the officer, could have been I anthorized or countenanced by the person alluded to, ( who, instead cf advising so nefarious a practice, had uniformly acted with the greatest humanity. The Sheriff desired to be informed by " the officer, whether his expenses had not been defrayed by the Court as soon as the prosecution ended I This was instantly admitted. How, then, said the Lord Mayor, could you think of committing a robbery upon a poor wretch, who, crimi- nal as she was, would receive sufficient punishment from the law? Did you suppose her so vicious that in addition to her transportation she should be stripped naked. The officer again stated that he had acted upon au- thority. The Lord Mayor.— Even if you had acted according to directions, you acted without authority, for no man, however exalted his situation may be, can authorize such an act of barbarity. I shall write to the person you have named, and my future proceeding against you shall, in a great measure, be influenced by his an - swer, which, I assure j on, I can very well anticipate ; for, whatever difference of opinion may exist between him and me upon other subjects, on that of humanity we perfectly agree. I now suspend you, and shall communicate the circumstances to the Court of Al- dermen. The officer expressed much regret at having done any thing improper. It arose, he said, from error; and he hoped it would be forgiven. The only answer the Lord Mayor gave was one ex- pressive of indignation. The Sheriff returned thanks to his Lordship for the readiness with which he had investigated the case, and said lie was now confirmed in the opinion which he en- tertained of the necessity of inquiry. The Lord Mayor said the enquiry would produce the very best consequences. The credit of the city had suffered materially from the conduct of the police- officers. And what did the House of Commons say upon the subject? Why, that the Magistrates of the city should look to them. He had, when he was she- riff, seen that the officers received sometimes 20s. a man per day during the trials, and he now rejoiced that the unworthy practices, from which such payment did not exempt them, would soon be at end. Mr. Brown said, he had established a book in New- gate in which the property taken from persons lodged in Ihe prison should be registered, and another in the. Sessions- house, which should be revised and corrected daily, so that the Sheriff'and acquitted prisoners would find no difficulty in obtaining what they were entitled to. The adoption of books of the same, kind at the Police- offices, would he suggested, be expedient, and in that opinion several of the Magistrates had ordered them. There are several cases now under investigation, in which the property of some prisoners, to the amount of several hundreds, is declared to be wholly unaccount- ed for. THE FEVER.— Mr. Teague, of the Compter, stated to the Lord Mayor, that 3 or - 1 persons were now in that prison in a very alarming state of fever-. He had admitted them to pre vent their perishing in the streets, two men for that purpose, and instructed them ib be vigilant in their duty; still the ground was robbed; scarcely a night passed without a body being stolen, and yet the offenders were not discovered. Mr. Seager at last determined to watch iu person, attended by his - son and a young man named John Sharp. On Sunday night they concealed themselves in a convenient part of the burial ground, am! about ten o'clock observed two men passing over the graves. The first proceeded to that part of the ground where there were two mau tiifpi set, which the let off; they then proceeded to the bone house, broke it open, and provided themselves with spade-, and immediately afterwards commenced their operation-- upon a grave wherein a body had been de- posited the preceding day Mr. Seager continued to watch their proceedings; they dug till the spades struck a coffin. Mr. Seager then came, fiom his concealment: and called out to these men to desist and surrender themselves ; he then discovered, to his great astonish- ment, that they were the identical persons whom lie had hired and paid to protect the ground. Marshal sprung from the grave, and with dreadful imprecations swore that he would murder [ Mr-. Seager, aud at the same time made a desperate blow at him with a spade, and knocked him down; lie was, about repeating the blow, when Mr. Seager's son flew to the protection at his father, fired a pistol at Marshall, and wounded him iu the left arm ; he then thought proper to . surrender, In the mean time, the prisoner Duffin attacked John Sharp With a drawn sabre, and cut him dangerously in the forehead. Sharp had armed himself with a poker, with which he maintained a conflict of several minutes and at last brought his adversary lo the ground; they conveyed their prisoners to the watch- house, when they discovered they were both very much wounded : a sur- geon dressed their: wounds. ' They continued iii the watch- house all night, and in the morning were con- ducted before the Magistrate. The Magistrate ordered the prisoners to be brought up for further examination on Monday next, when the solicitor for the parish will attend to conduct the pro- secution. James Elphe, and Daniel Dix, two lads under thirteen years of age, were charged, by Painter, the constable of Rotherhithe, with robbing an uninhabited house at Rotherhithe on Monday night last, in connexion with five other lads not yet in custody. The prisoners appeared as hardened as old offenders. They admitted that themselves and five other boys, about the same age, had formed themselves into a gaiia; they entirely subsisted by depredations at the stall's booksellers, and by stealing lead and panes r. t s| 1)<$ from uninhabited houses. On Monday they ag'eot'. IO rob a house at Rotherhithe ; they entered'the house through a back room window; and took 14 brass knobs from he locks, and several iron bolts from the doors aud windows; the whole of which they sold to a dealer in marine stores, who lives in Bermondsey, for J. s. They then returned to the house for the purpose of stripping some lead from the roof, after which it was agreed r. pon to set the house on fire to prevent the discovery of the robbery, and for which purpose they had p. ov ded themselves with tinder, flint, and matches. A woman who lived on the opposite side of the way informed Painter that she had Observed the glimmering of a light iu the house, which she knew to be uninhabited. He immediately forced an entrance into the premises, and succeeded in capturing the prisoners; the other five boys made their escape. The prisoners were committed for re- examination ore Monday next, when others of the gang will be in custody. WORSHIP- STREET.— Extraordinary Robbery - - Mr . Brown, a master silk- weaver, in Wheeler- street, Spital- fields, was brought tip custody of Armstrong, charg. ed with stealing 50 pieces of satin gauze, of conside- rable value, the property of Mr. Felthum and Co. silk- manuf icturers ; and Mr. Wm. Sherwin, silk dyer, was also charged with receiving the stolen property. Mr. Buckland attended to conduct toe prosecution. Jervis, a man applied by Messrs. Dubois and Co. stated, that on the 6th November, he went to the Fountain aud Star, Castle- lane, where he received the 50 pieces of silk, by the direction of Mr. Felthum The silk was put into a cart, and he was to take i. t to his employer's dye- house ; but on- going along Fore- street, he discovered that it had been stolen out of the cart. Francis Peaton said, she worked at a loom, at the prisoner Brown's house, he gave her a bag, which he said contained worsted, to carry to Mr. Walker's, a dyer, to be dyed. She left the bag at her mother's, in- tending to call again for it, but the circumstance of the robbery being known, the mother was apprehended, because the bag instead of worsted contained silk. She told Mrs. Brown of the circumstance in prisoner's pre- sence, when he expressed his sorrow, and said, he w ould render her whatever service he could. Charlotte Peaton, sister to the last witness, said, on discovering the bag contained silk, she informed her neighbours, who were of opinion it had been stolen. On the foregoing testimony the mother was liberated, and admitted evidence. Joseph Peaton, last witness's son. on hearing his mo- ther was in custody, waited on Mr Brown, who told him not to be alarmed, he could account how the silk came into his possession. Mr. Dubois, of the firm of Dubois and Co. silk- dyers, stated, that he received information from Mr. Robert- son, a silk- dresser, that silk answering the description of the stolen property had been sent to him, and was dyed black. Mr. Dubois in consequence took Mr. Felthum the manufacturer to inspect it, and he was sa- tisfied it was the same which had been delivered to Mr. Dubois' servant. On inquiring at the prisoner Sher- win's house, who had sent the silk to he dressed, they were informed a stranger had sent it there to tie dyecf, and he was to call for it next morning. A plan was then concerted to apprehend him, but he did not come, and Mr. Sherwin produced a letter, purporting to be from the person who sent him the silk to be dyed, informing him, that urgency of business caused him to leave town, and directing him to s - nd Ihe silk to the Craven Arms, Coventry, directed to X. Y. Z., and the amount of his bill w ould be discharged. With Sherwin's consent, au answer was sent to this letter m his name, saying the silk would not be delivered to any one but the person who had left it. To this no answer was received, and the prisoner Sherwin was apprehended Mr. Felthum now produced a sample of the silk, and finding it to correspond, he swore it was the property of himself and co- partners. The prisoners being men of property, and hitherto of unquestionable reputation, the case excited conside- rable interest in the neighbourhood.— Fullyconiniitted. Desperate Outrage.— About 7 o'clock one morning last week, a hackney- coach drove to the door of a Mrs. Price, of East- lane, Walworth, and on Mrs. Price going to the door, ten or a dozen fellows rushed into the passage, seized hold of her, and in a most barbarous but their continuance where infection would be so ter- rible, was, he apprehended, highly dangerous. The Lord Mayor ordered that the diseased persons should be immediately sent to the Fever Hospital, where a letter of recommendation was, he obseived,, unnecessary, although the finances were so scanty. He here took occasion to express his surprise at the very impolitic refusal of the Court of Common' Council to subscribe the paltry Sum of £ 150. towards the sup- port of an Institution, which was unfortunately be- coming more and more necessary every day ; and inti- mated that he expected the next application upon the same subject would be received with less regard to form, and more to the consequences likely lo arise from staying a contagious fever. Daring Assault, and Attempt lo Steal Dead Bodies. UNION- HALL .— Monday, Mr. Watmore, the vestry- clerk of Lambeth, and several of the parish- officers, at- tended before the Magistrate, Mr. Chambers, to prefer a charge against two men, named Thomas Duffin aud John Marshall, under the. following circumstances:— I appeared that the burial- ground of Lambeth has for a: considerable time past been the scene of transactions • •! the most daring and horrid description. The deposito- ries of the dead have been nightly invaded, and the feelings of surviving relatives exceedingly harrowed by Ihe depredations upon their deceased friends of that callous gang of wretches known by the name of Body Snatchers, whose industry iu their disgusting trade has been particularly exercised in the new burial- ground al Lambeth. The parish- officers have been frequently called upon by the inhabitants to ado, it some effectua- arrangements for the discontinuance of those nefarious practices. lu compliance with the general wish, ihey ordered Mr, John Seager, the sexton, to procure some persons to keep a nightly watch; he accordingly hired and brutal manner forced her into the coach, and bore her away, pretending that they were acting under { e- gal authority. A party of the same gang- soon returned to her house, and stripped it of every article of value* The peculiarity of the circumstance prevented many persons from taking that interest in the affair which the nature of it deserves, and all who beheld it fancied they were acting under some substantial authority, and allowed them to pass in the commission of then sup- posed duty, without attempting to interrupt them. Robbery of a Soldier.— On Tuesday evening, as a young man, named John Swindles, who was discharged on Monday from the Royal Artillery, was going along Newington- eauseway, with a knapsack on his back, lie was accosted by a tall man of respectable appearance, who inquired where he was going; the soldier told his tale in a few words, and gave the stranger to under- stand that be had been recently discharged from his Majesty's service, that be had just got money enough to carry him home to his native place, a village near Man- e, hc iter; ami that lie was proceeding ther e on foot with all possible expedition. After complimenting the can- dour of the soldier, the man said that he felt disposed I to render him some assistance, and requested that he would accompany him to the Bricklayers' Arms, and he would be enabled to induce some of the stage- coach- iiren, with whom he was acquainted, to give him a lift on the poor soldier gladly accepted. They went into the tap- room of the Bricklayers' Arms, where they sat to- gether for about half an hour. The stranger made an excuse to leave the room, saving that lie would go and look after some of the coachmen; he afterwards went in and out several times, and at last contrived to carry away the knapsack without being observed- The poor fellow's distress was extreme when lie discovered the robbery. The knapsack, he, said, contained 28s. and that it was all the property he possessed in the world." M JL RICH WHEEL. Four Prizes of .£' 20,000 / And Only ONE DAY more to draw. C.

LONDON, December 9. The King's Health.— Saturday the Queen's Council assembled at Wiudsor, to receive ihe Monthly Report of the five Doctors appointed to attend his Majesty. After the breaking up of tiie Council, Lord Ardeu dispached a Mes- senger to the Queen, at Bath, with the Doclois' Report of the state of the King: and, on Sun- day, the following Bulletin was shewn at St. James's Palace:— " Windsor Castle, Dec. 7.— His Majesty has been uniformly composed through the last month, and has enjoyed good general health, though his Majesty's dis- order continued unchanged. Signed as usual by the five Physicians. Paris Papers of four days, up lo Thursday last, arrived on Saturday. In the sitting of the Chamber of Deputies last Saturday Gouvion St. Cyr, Minister of War, commuuicafed his projet of law concerning the recruiting of the army : the object of which, he stated, was not to arm the population, but to provide for garrisons and the corps of the army. Peace, he observed' remained on painful terms, but they would be terminated by negociations. ' The present projet arose from no fear or alarm; for there was no apprehension of foreign war; but only from the intention to place France in a proper station among the European Powers, and not with a view of her attacking or defending other states. Two kinds of service are contemplated ; the voluntary and tlie compulsory. The former of them was not sufficient for the completion of the departmental legions. Obligatory means should therefore be resorted to. The royal guards, the cavalry, artillery, and engineers, are to be re- cruited by voluntary enlistment; but the de partmental legions are to be aided by similar enlistments; yet, if not so filled up, ballot is to be recurred to. Voluntary enlistment is to be for six years in the legions, and for eight in other corps: 110 bounty money to be allowed. The peace complement of the departmental le- gions is to be fixed at 150,000 men; the annual ballots not to exceed 40,000. Re- enlistments are to be for Ihe same time as first engagements, but to confer increase of pay, and admission into the gendarmerie or veterans of the liHe. The new plan is to pay all regard to justice and humanity, and its character to partake of nothing of the old conscription. 1 < A Dutch Mail arrived on Saturday. An arti- cle from Cobourg states, that the Court and City had been plunged into the deepest affliction by the news of the death of the Princess Charlotte, which arrived their oil the 15th ult. A solemn funeral service has been performed at Warsaw for the death of Kosciuska, at which the Grand Duke and all the Public Authorities attended.— The King of Wirtemberg has issued several Ordi- nances respecting the new organization of his kingdom. Among them is one abolishing vas- salage throughout his territories, from the 1st of January next. The object of this boon is to de- tach them from the cause of the States, and to bribe them into a compliance with his illegal projects of taxation. The King of Bavaria has, by an Ordinance, conferred upon Eugene Beau harnois, Prince of Eichstadt, the title of Royal Highness, aud given him aud his decendants rank next after the Princes of the Royal Family.

A Wonderful Cure of a Scald Head. To l) ii. SMITH. UPTON MAGMA. lEAR SIR,— We think ourselves bound iu gratitude to you, for the cure ofa child of our's, who was sent to a Boarding School in this County ; she had not been there six w eeks before she catched a disorder iu her head, ( called the Scald Head). The people belonging to the place did every thing in their power to cure the child, with outward applica- tions; there were five children in that condition, be- fore this child ; who were attended by the Shrewsbury Doctors, and no doubt they put plenty of quicksilver, and other poisonous prescriptions, to dry the outside, while the disorder continued underneath. At length ten holes appeared upon the head, and the top of the skull displayed a spectacle of horror: this child iscom- pletely cured, and the head entirely free from blemishes, by taking only two small bottles of Ploughman's Drops, and using the salve. The child is now in perfect health, and the hair in a beautiful and flourishing condition, and may be seen at Shrewsbury any day. N. B. Dr. Smith'recommends good living for the above- named disorder, and no physic. For delicacy they dont wish to mention the child's name publicly. D. S. Upton Magna, Dec. 4, 1816.

The condition of our too romantic Country- men, says a correspondent, who have, like Knights- Errant, gone to South America, at their ow n expcnce, with their swords, for the relief of distressed Patriots or Insurgents, is much to be deplored. They deserved a better fate. An Officer is returned from Venezuela, who re- latcs that he has seen many British Officers serving iu Russia duck jackets and trousers, with cloth straps, instead ot epaulettes— they not having been able to equip themselves, on account of the deception practised on them, and not receiving the 200 dollars promised them, to reimburse them the expence of their voyage. They were also promised immediate promotion lo the next grade. Lieutenants were to be Captains, Captains to be Majors, Sec. with in- stant ample pay and allowances, agreeably to Ihc rank each held. But they have been de- ceived and disappointed. We are glad to find that the wishes of the in- habitants of the Ionian Islands are likely to be gratified by the preservation of Parga from the dominion of the Turks. An Address of Condolence was voted to the Prince Regent at a County Meeting held at Reading, on the 3d inst. A scene of much con- fusion and uproar took place inconsequence of Mr. Hallet and Mr. C F. Palmer objecting lo ' lie requisition and the address, as containing no allusion to the Princess of Wales. The' former asked why the hopes ol the nation had centered in Ihe Princess Charlotte alone. When they called lo mind, that upon the prospect of heirs being pro- vided to the House of Brunswick by his Royal Highness the Prince Regent, his debts, to, the amount of £ 1,430,000 were paid ofl'bv ( he nation. — The Princess ol Wales was as unstained as any lady in England. If she was not— if she was guilty, let her suffer for high treason ; if she was innocent, let her accusers suffer the penal- ties of perjury. She bore the Princess whom they professed to deplore; she suffered the pains of childbirth surely like other women.— What would the gentlemen on the other side say if she were now Queen of England, and bestow- ing bishoprics, deaneries, and lucrative honours ? How would they oppress her with virtues which no woman being ever possessed 1 For the information of those who feel them- selves aggrieved by the recent assements on houses, & c. we think it proper to state, that the surveyors who dare to make unjust, vexatious, and oppressive surcharges, are liable, for every offence, to a penalty of 501.

R. LUSHINGTON. " To D. J. Parker, esq. Chairman, of the General Meeting of Hop- planters." Several of the principal brewers have also had an in- terview w ith Lord Liverpool and the Chancellor of the Exchequer, for the purpose of learning their final de- termination on the same subject, when a similar answer was given. tn consequence, of a Requisition of several of the inhabitants, a meeting was yesterday convened at the Town Hall, by J. Day, Esq. Mayor, to take into con- sideration the best mode of establishing a Nightly Watch during the winter, when it was agreed that it should be done by a subscription from the inhabitants- A Committee was then formed to carry this desirable object into execution, and a handsome sum immediately subscribed by the gentlemen present for this purpose. The practice of stealing Hop- Sets from the grounds in this, and adjoining parishes, lias been carried on this season to an alarming extent, even the young planted grounds have not escaped the pillage of these nightly plunderers ; it is to be hoped for the future that planters will be more particular of w hom they purchase their Sets, as by so doing many of these thieves might pro- bably be detected ; it will be seen that there is an ad- vertisement in our front page cautioning persons to the same effect. A few days since the oast- house of Mr. Thos. Baker, situate at West Malling, was broke open and a bag of hops stolen therefrom, a reward of twenty guineas isof- fered for the apprehension of the offender or offenders. —( See Advertisement.) Last Sunday night a horse was stolen from out of the stable of Mr. Wm. Posse, of Marden, which was seen with the thief passing through Stilebridge Turnpike Gate that night about 12 o'clock, but no further trace of them can be found ; a reward is offered for the ap- prehension of the offender.—( See Advertisement.) On the evening of Friday last, John Dann, game- keeper to Thomas Rider, Esq. had been passing some hours at the public- house, at Stilebridge, and about 11 o'clock proceeded on his journey home, on his arriving at the bridge, it is supposed, from the darkness of the evening, that instead of his crossing, he went by the side and fell into the river; his body was found on Sa. turday morning, and in tlie evening an inquest was held on the same, before James Ottaway, Esq. Coroner.— Verdict— Accidental Death. A melancholy accident happened on the evening of Sunday se'nnight at Harrietsham, to a Mrs. Honey, of that place, she was left sitting by the side of a candle, a spark from which is supposed to have fallen on her clothes, which were shortly in a blaze, and she being in a very infirm state was unable to extinguish the same; her daughter had not left her but a few minutes, and on her return found her mother then in flames which she immediately extinguished, but she was burnt in so dreadful a manner that she lingered in the greatest agony till Tuesday when she expired. She was 83 years of age, aud has left 15 sons and daughters, 55 grand children, and 59 great grand children, to lament her loss. The death ofthe late truly respected and pious Vicar of Sittingbourne has excited amongst the inhabitants strong feelings of regret, and the most anxious solici- tude now prevails lest this much lamented event should occasion another circumstance, that would in a very great degree aggravate those feelings, namely, the re- moval of the present Curate, Mr. PEARCE. His con- stant attention to the duties of his profession; the zeal which has always characterized his efforts in promoting the different philanthropic institutions, and the lively interest manifested on every occasion for the welfare of the parish during a residence of nine years, com- bined with those qualities which in private life tend to exalt the nature of man, have so far endeared him to all classes ofhis parishioners that they lost no time ill sending a petition, most respectably aud numerously signed, to the Archbishop, entreating his Grace to pie- sent him w ith the Living as a reward well merited by his services; but w e understand that his Grarc had con- ferred the Living on the Rev. Mr. LOUGH, of Milton, a very short time previous to receiving the petition from Sittingbourne, the inhabitants whereof still console themselves with the hope that the Archbishop will not long suffer such pretensions as MR. PEARCE'S to pass umioticcd. At a Court of Burghmote of the Corporation of the City of Canterbury, held on Tuesday last, Addresses of Condolence weie unanimously voted to his Royal Highness the Prince Regent, anil his Serene Highness the Prince of Saxe Cobourg, on Ihe late melancholy event of the death of the Princess Charlotte of Wales, with a request to the Representatives of the City, that they would present the same:— at the same time a simi- lar Address to the Princess of Wales was proposed, and carried on a division; but the mode or channel through which it should be presented to her Royal Highness, was postponed for further consideration. A sheep, two years old, fatted on grass only, by Mr Goord, was exhibited at Rochester market on Tuesday last, which weighed 22 stone, and was one of the finest and best formed sheep that was ever seen. On Sunday evening se nnight, a man of the name of Richards applied for a bed at tlie Horn public- house, Chatham, and slept there on that night. In the morn- ing he came downstairs with his box, which was co- vered with green baize, and, leaving it in the bar, re- quested it might be taken care of, and that he would call for it in a short time. Before he called, Mr. Hurlstone, the master of tlie public- house, had an intimation that the fellow had been in the habit of stealing feathers from beds, and, on examining the one he had slept in, it was discovered that a large quantity had been taken from it, by unripping the bed ticking, which had been afterwards very neatly sewed up. His box was imme- diately opened, when a bag was found in it stuffed full of feathers, with a flat iron, a pocket- book containing scissars, needles, thread, and every necessary apparatus for carrying on his nefarious business.— Shortly after tile examination had taken place, lie called for his box, but being taxed with Ihe robbery, he said he would bring the person from whom lie had purchased the fea- thers; and, leaving the house with the greatest pre- cipitation, made his escape, and has not since been heard of. Commitments to the County Gaol, since our last.— Jane Wilson, charged with stealing at St. Nicholas Deptford, one cotton shawl, and one sarcenet spencer, the property of John Davies.— John James Farrell, and Adam Artes, charged with stealing at St. Nicholas Deptford, one piece of timber, the property of Thomas Brochelbank.— William Piercey, charged with stealing] at Deptford, sundry articles of wearing apparel, the property of Richard Smith.— William West, charged with' stealing at Chatham, three rabbits, the property of William Clifford.— John Sanfoine, and John Jen- nings, charged with stealing at West Wickham, 5 quar- ters of unclean wheat, sacks and other things, the pro- perty of Phillip Eaton.— John Needhan, and William Jordan, charged with stealing at Woolwich, boots and shoes, the properly of Edw.

At tin Arsenal at Woolwich reduction has already commenced The department for barracks for the artillery is to be abolished, while its business, which must now be trifling, merges into the general routine of the Ordnance Office, iu Pall- mall. The principal, Col. Neville, of course retires on some allowance: and probably his assistant. Of the Clerks, who will thus be removed some have, it is said, been employed live or six years, and it is report- ed that there is a possibility of no allowance being granted them. Reductions at the Tower are also inten- ded ; as likewise at the stations round the coast, but to consist merely of inferior officers, & c. Mr. R. Ward's journey to Ireland was for the purpose of inspecting the several depots for ordnance stores in that country, where reductions to as great an extent as possible will also be carried into effect. The individuals have re- ceived notice that their services will not be requited after the termination of the present year. The Ord- nance department, it is stated, is now under the control Treasury, the same as all other of- recomntcnded by theCoinmit tee on Finance ill their Report. These measures of economy of course reduce the estimates for this extensive department for the ensuing year. Ail apple was lately gathered in the garden of Leeds Castle, the circumference of w hich was thirteen inches and three quarters, & weight one pound half an ounce. Every one who is subject to indigestion, or irregula- rities in the billiary secretion, must be aware ofthe dis- tressing symptoms they produce, such as frequent sick- ness, to 5s of appetite, distension or pain in the stomach after meals, costiveness, head- ache, listlessncss, or a general depression ofthe spirits. - Unerring experience has proved the great utility of Mr. TOWERS'S TONIC PILLS in these complaints. Mild, but effectual in their operation, they cleanse and yet strengthen the stomach, aud gently relax the bowels without by any means acting as a purgative: they also restore the appetite, assist digestion, and promote a due and regular secre- tion of the bile. They do not contain mercury in any form, and hence require no particular caution or re- straint. The Tonic Pills are sold at 2s. 9d. 4s. 6d. and lis. per box, hy Messrs.

There are now travelling through different parts of the kingdom numbers of vagrants, who assume the dress and character of sailors, and, pretending they have been discharged at different ports, say, " they have no set- tlement." Many felonies have been committed by them; ami we mention it, that the public may be upon their guard, and that the constables of the respective villages may he attentive to their duty. On Friday the Recorder made a Report to the Prince Regent of the convicts under sentence of death in New- gate, when J. Vartie and G. Pearson, for forgery ; and T. Daltry, for highway robbery, were ordered for execution 0n Thursday next, the 11th of December. SHEEP STEALING.— On Tuesday William Stanley and William Slade were re- examined at Union- Hall on a charge of sheep stealing. The prisoners were kept apart by direction of the Magistrate; and 011 their ap prehension on Saturday, the prisoner Stanley stated, that he would make confessions of considerable impor- tance, relative to the crimes in which he had been con- cerned, if the Magistrate would admit him as evidence for the Crown. The Magistrate expressed his willing- ness to hear the confessions of the prisoner, but could give no assurance that he would be admitted as King's evidence. The prisoner made the following confession : . " The name of the other prisoner is not Slade, but Chambers; he and I stole three lambs on Friday night, about twelve o'clock, from a field in Kent, about eight miles off. I can shew the place ; we took the lambs out of one field into another, about one hundred yards oil, to kill them; we left the heads and skins in a ditch. About a month ago, we stole a sheep from a field near the same place ; we killed it, took it to London to a lodging- house for beggars, kept by a woman named Horton, in White's- yard, Rosemary- lane, where we re- tailed it to the beggars, at Id. per pound, and let the landlady have some for 3 jd. The skin and head w e left under a hedge, where we killed the sheep. About a fortnight ago, we stole, a sheep out of a field near Cam- berwell, and disposed » f it at the same house, and in the same manner. When I w as hopping iu Kent, w ith Chambers and another man, we stole three sheep, at different times, and eat them. About a month ag< i. Chambers and I stole a donkey from a farm yard on the Maidstone- road, and sold it for ten shillings." In consequence of the information thus given by Stanley, the officers, May, Goff, and Hall, proceeded to the various places mentioned by him. They took the prisoner with them and the discoveries they made corroborated his confession In the places mentioned by Stanley, they found skins, heads, and plucks of sheep, and by means of the marks ou the skins, they were en- abled to discover the owners. It appeared that Mr. Joseph Carter, of Mottingham, Kent, was robbed of three lambs, and John Fort, his servant, swore to the skins which had been found by the officers, and pro- duced in Court. Mr. Richard Staines, of Eltham, in Kent, was robbed of a sheep on the 29th of October, and he identified one of the skins found by the officers to have belonged to his sheep. The parties were bound over to prosecute ill the cases of Mr. Carter and Mr. Starnes. Mr Starnes stated, that the depredations 011 sheep- owners had been so extensive in Kent and . Surry, that Associations had been formed amongst the farmers and gentry, and large sums ot money subscribed for the sole purpose Of apprehending and prosecuting offenders iu that particular crime. THE SPANISH PATRIOTS.— At the Mansion House on Friday a fine able fellow, 28 years of age, named Smith, stated to the Lord Mayor, that he had been advised by a Magistrate in the county of Kent to apply to his Lord ship as the only person qualified to instruct him how to act in a case of much hardship. The complainant said that he, and about 40 others, had gone on board the Britannia, now lying at Graves- end, destination, South America, at the request of a Colonel, who promised them 80 dollars a man upon their joining the cause of the Spanish Patriots. The pay was to commence from the day they went on board. The offer of such a reward, in such bad times, was not to be refused, and accordingly he, and his companions in ad- venture, submitted to all the regulations for the voyage, having complied with the direction to put away their warm clothing, and substitute that which was adapted to a warmer climate, and to have tiieir hair cut iu the military style, as close as possible to their heads. The complainant had been in his Majesty's sea service 13 years and nine months, and had n0 objection 10 tin n from that service to the. field, where he was given 10 understand he might fight for the Patriots without any impeachment of his duty lo the British Government, and had such a reliance upon the gentleman who hired him as prevented all suspicion of a disappointment. The Lord Mayor asked whether the Colonel had en- tered into any written agreement with him and his companions, upon the subject of pay, and upon what authority he had been employed to fight against the Spaniards. The complainant said they had 110 other security for the payment of the money than the word of he Colonel, who, he believed, took all the responsibility ol the. matter upon himself; but whether Government had authorized him or not to go to South America to fight the seaman did not know. The other day he and his 40 comrades j were surprised with an order to go ashore, compliment- | ed with a shilling a piece from the Colonel, who said they were not to sail, and here they were in town with- out a halfpenny in their pockets and dressed in jackets and trowsers through which the winds made sad work with their limbs. The Lord Mayor mentioned that, in all probability, the proclamation had broken the contract, having ren- dered their dismissal unavoidable. His Lordship con- cluded with mentioning, that he should write to the Co- lonel upon the subject, and on receiving Ins answ r, make some arrangements for the disposing of the con plainant and his companions. The seaman thanked his Lordship, and said they were all able to work, and if they had covering would look for employment. BANK TOKENS.—' A public notice has been given, that Bank Tokens will not be allowed 10 be received in payment after the 25lh of March next, under a pe- nally of Five- Pounds. There are at present two rooks' nests in the planta-. tion near the Hon.
