To Ihe land of potatoes a visit once making, One Mister O'Donogboe begged I'd be taking At Dublin a Dinuer with him ; " By St. Patrick" he said " and III show your Iwo eyes, A sight Ibatshallstrike yon quite dumb with surprise," So I Ibougbt I would humour bis whim. I no sooner arrived than we sat down to dine. And dinner ouce over we pushed ruiind tbe wine, Till both of us got pretly gay; And my friend who by no means of btitnour was barren, Turn'd Ibe talk to Ihe beautiful Blacking of WAtiRK. N, And tbe richness that black wonld display. " But d p r o p i t " be said " to my chamber be coming, I'll show yon some pictures in loveliness blooming, W'ilb W A R R E N ' S Jet Blacking I drew tbetn ; Bnt these pictures are magical, for you must know Tbe moment you see tbem my visage they'll show, But vanish when you cease to viewthem." When I got to bit chamber no pictures I fount?, Bnt Ihe wainscot was covered with boots that hung round And reflected my face as tbey shone; ThenO'Donoghoe started and suddenly cried, No face but my own In these boots have I spied, But now there is mine and yonr own. The mystery was solved, ' twas the boots were so bright, Tbey rettected onrfa^ es, and I wilh delight, Th' effect » a « o f WARREN'S Jet Blacking ; And when I got borne lo my lodgings, I wrol* Forabamper of W a s a t s ' s Jet Blacking, a nole; Of that varnish no more I'i) be larking. Theabove truly inestimable Blacking is prepared by BILIOUS AND LIFER COMPLAINTS. AS Ja mild and effectual remedy for sll those disorders whicb originate iu a vitiated actional tbe liver and biliary organs, namely, indigestion, loss of appetite, headacbs, heartburn, flatulencies, spasms, costiveness, affections ofthe liver, A c . drc. it may be asserted with Ihe strictest truth, lhat, DIXON'S ANTIBILIOUS PILLS have met with more general approval, and particularly by Ibe medical profession, than any other medicine whatever. This constitutes their recommendation lo Ihe notice of every individual afflicted wilb Ibe above complaints. They unite every recommendation of mild operation witb successful effect ; and require no restraint or confinement whatever during their use. In tropical climates, where the consequences of redundant and vitiated bile are so prevalent and alarming, Ihey are an invaluable and efficient proteclion. Tbey are likewise peculiarly calculated to correct disorders arising from excesses of Ihe table, lo restore the lone of Ihe stomach, aud lo remove every complaint occasioned hy Irregnlarity of the bowels.

By Ihe very last Arrival from India, was received that LIVING WONDER THE BOA- CONSTRICTOR. OR GREAT SERPENT. The BOA CONSTRICTOR is the most conspicuous and formidable of all Serpents, from ils pre- eminent Superiority of Beauty and Colours ; and though it varies Irom Age, Sex, and Climate, tbey may be distinguished from tile rest of these Tribes by ( heir enormous Size, as Ibey are oflen found Sixty Feet iu Length. The extreme difficslty of preserving those stupendous Reptiles in this Climate, has hitherto deterred every other Person from attempting lo exhibit Ibem in ( bis Kingdom ; aod the present may prohabi) be Ihe only opportunity which the Public may ever have, of viewing so curious aud magnliiceut a Spectacle. The HORNED HORSE, Or, NILGHAU, Universally arknowledged Ihe mosl elegant Quadruped of Hindoslau ; about 14 hands high, of a most graceful Shape aud Appearance. He lias T w o Horns growing Immediately over his Eyes, which gave him Ihe appellation of Ihe Horned Horse ; and seems lo partake of the Species or Ihe Horse, Ike Cow, ana Ihe Antelope; being in every respect Ibe most admirable production of Nature-' s wonderful Works. The Finest, most Perfect and Beautiful ZEBRA, Seen in Ihis Kingdom in the memory of Man ; in which K seems as if Ihe mosl exquisite Works of Art had combined Wilb Nature in this wonderful Production. In symmetry of Shape, and beauty of Colour, il i « the most elegant of all Quadrupeds. Il un ( es llie graceful figure or the Horse, with the fleet it ess of a Slag, and is beautifully striped wilh regular Lines, Black aud W bite. The Stupendous and Sagacious MALE ELEPHANT. The wonderful Size, Strength, and Sagacity of Ihe Elephant, have, in ail ages, rendered it the admiraliou of . Mankiud : bet tbe present seems lo be one of the mosl scientific of ils Pace ; and, at Ibe Command of his Keeper, will perform so many wonderful Tricks, as not only to astonish and entertain tbe Audience, but justly prove Hie balf- reasouing Beast. THREE LIONS Of the largest Class in the World, superior to any ever before imported, whicb, on the first glance, convince every Beholder witb that magnificent idea, so generally conceived of tbe King of tbe Brute Creation. TWO TIGERS, Which for Size and Beauty, were never equalled in ( Li* Kingdom. The SPOTTED or LAUGHING HYENA, From Hie Cape of Good Hope. Also, Two Striped HYENAS, from Abyssinia. SEVERAL PANTHERS, From Ihe River La Plata. The OCELOT, or TIGER in MINIATURE, From the Brazils. One of the Finest LEOPARDS in the World. The JAGUAR, or Tiger Cat, from Amboyna. That Extraordinary Animal The AFRICAN PORCUPINE, By no means to be compared with the insignificant Animals of that Class' hitherto shown in Ibis Counlry, being covered wilh Quills of immense Size, forming a complete Cherat- de- ( rise, capable of repelling the fiercest Beast ol Ihe Desert. The FIERY LYNX, Very seldom sesn in any Menagerie, and Ihe only one in Britain. The Ravenous WOLF, from the Alps— That Extraordinary Animal. Ihe URSINE SLOTH — Male and Female KANGAROOS, from Botany Bay. The POLAR, From the Frozen Ocean, commonly exhibited for Ihe SEA LION.

The Great EMEW, or Southern OSTRICH, From Van Dieman's Land.

SOUND Ships and Captains The Dnke of Wellington appears to be indefatignbly employed al Paris in arranging Ihe differences and determining the rights of almost every people in Fiiirope, for not a day passes wilboiit witnessing his conferences witb some of the Ministers and Ambassadors who al present crowd tbe Court of Tbuilferle". Tbe nature of these various negociations must, tiowever. remain a matter for conjecture ; but the mention of Uaron Monnier'a name— Tbe President of Ibe Commission for regulating Ihe foreign debts of France— and that of the Spanish Ambassador, would intimate that Ihe Prussian Claims, and the points iu dispute between Spain and Portugal, form t he principal ' opies ol consideration. .. Oil Ihe latter subject indeed it is reported, thai ibe differences between these two powers have lately taken a turn far from favourable ; aud Ibis to a degree that there seems to be an apprehension of a . erlons and imminent rupture, unless Ibe difficulties between tbe two Courts are speedily cleared away. It would certainly be a very great misfortune if hostilities should, at a moment like the present, break out between Spaiu and Portugal, either on the banks of Ihe'Tagus, or on those of the Rio lie la Plata.— It is observed, with pain, lhat since the arrival of the Russian squadron at Cadiz, the tone of the Spanish- Ministers has become much more perempt ory. There is every reason to believe, that our Cabinet feels a particular interest in these affairs, and carries ou an active correspondence with the other great Powers, to prevent, if possible, any actual rupture. The report made to Ihe Chamber of Deputies by Baron Du'Oligemia. upou ihe. law for abolishing tlie Slave Trade, proposed Instead of enacting " lhat French Captains, who become violaters of ( he law, shall be punished with interdiction," the words shall be published by deprivation of ait permission to navigate." This was however withdrawn and ihe lawpassed 117 to 19. It is slated, however, in a private l& iter from Paris, that I tie French Government has declined lo adopt the principal recognised by Spain and Portugal, of a reciprocal right of search within certain latitudes, we are at a loss to imagine any good reason for ihe refusal.

The reception of Mr. Charles Tennyson was throughout the most gratifying and Battering lo himself and his friends: never was greater respect shewn to any candidate on his entrance iulo Ihe borough. Not a single instance of dissent or dissatisfaction was observed ; indeed that be should represent ibe borough in Parliament, appears lo be the general wish of the town and neighbourhood. J.

William took possession ol Ibe copyhold estates, in pursuance of bis father's will, which he had kept peaceable possession of from thai time; and the plaintiff took the freehold estates. It was contended on tbe part or Ibe plaintiff, lhat by the custom of the manor of Hadfield, lands held of tbe Lord, descended to alt Ihe sons- pqnally, wbo were always admitted in tenants and common. It was forlher ronlended lhat as the possession of William Broughton was also tfca possession of ihe younger brqjher, it was not therefore ad adverse possession ; aud consequently that the possession of more than twenty years, on the pari of William Broughtou, would not bar the present action of ejectment ! : he object of which was to obtain a maiety of the copyhold premises. His Lordship said that Ibe plaint iff having made an election, in taking Ihe freehold estate under his father's will, heabau doucd any claim he might have had upon the copyhold property, and that therefore the possession of William Broughlou niusi be considered as an adverse possession, and consequently that the actiou of ejectmeui could not be sustained.

SANDWELL. This was a case which excited considerable interest, and the Court wa< crowded to excess in consequence. Tne plaintifi's were ihe executors of a Mr. Noakes deceased, and the defendtiut was a shop keeper residing at Deal This was an action o! trover, to recover. certain property from the defendant, under ^ be following pecuiiary circumstances:— About Ihe monlh ot June or July last, a sale look place iff Ibe - property or the plaintiff, at which tbe defendant attended for the purpose of purchasing part of the properly. A chest of antique walnut- tree drawers was piit up by the auctioneer and bought hy the defendant for ibe sum or 4s. 3d. In < he evening of the same day tbe goods were removed, and among them were these otri'drawers ; while ( be person employed by Ihe defendant lo reiinveiiis purchases from the premises was taking the drawers to defendant's house a secret drawer fell ont, remaining a bag lull of guineas. The defendaut was present at the time, and upon seeing Ihe circumstance he asked the porter what be should do; ihe porter advised the defendant lo say nothing about il, but required five guiueas as hush money. This ( he defeudaBI, however, positively refused, aud observed ( hat he would rather go lo law about it than give the hush- money. The man, upon being refused his request immediately niadea disclosure, and the present acliou was tbe consequence. II was proved by the auctioneer, wbo was called on tbe part of the, executors, that the drawers were sold, and lhat the defendant had confessed tbe. guineas were there, ft was also proved by a person al whose house the guineas vrere counted by the defendant, that the number of guineas amounted lo between 109 and 130 in the whole. Mr. Adolphtes, as counsel on the part of the df: fend ant, called no witnesses, hut endeavoured to shew that the plaintiff could not succeed in the action, as it could nol be proved lhat these guineas were actually bis properly ; on the contrary, he contended that the Jury must consider the properly not to have belonged to ibe deceased, but to bis ancestors, or to stunt; one unknown. The guineas might have been placed there by someone whoily unconnected witb the deceased. Air. P iroo Graham, however, held that the property being found in his house, was sufficient lo prove that it was the property ofthe deceased.

STAFFORDSHIRE. PARUAMEKTABY REFORM.— Tbe KiNo. oo^ he prosecuflon of Thomas Dcakin, v. Tliomas Potts, Samuel I Too J, William Taylor, James Hazlehurst and William Heiesoa. This case afforded considerable mirth lo a very crowded Court. II was an indictment which charged Ihe defendants with having riot, ously assembled together iu the parish or Stoke, in ( he Potteries, against the peace of our Sovereign Lord tbe King, and withhaving assaulted Thomas Deakin, by working a quantity of water from an engine on him, while be was obtaining signatures to a Petition lor Parliamentary Reform- Mr. Pearson stated Ibe - circumstances of tbe case to Ibe Jury, iu doing which be observed, Ibat tbe riol anil assault arose out of a proceeding of a political nature, but Ihe Jury were lo divest themselves of every political consideration iu drawing I heir conclusion ortbedefeiidants'gui't or innocence; for if they should be of opinion that the defendants bad violated Ibe law, it was a matter of little consequence whether il was done under circumstances of a political nature or pot. Tbe defendants were inhabitants of Stoke, aud il appeared thai a few days before the assault complained of was committed, a Mr. Johnson, whose name may be familiar with some of the Gentlemen or the Jury, called a Meeting upon the subject of petiiiouiug Parliament for a Reform iu the House of Commons. The prosecutor was employed to gel the signatures of Ibose who were not able to attend the Meeting-, be, in pursuance of Ibis office, went lo Sloke, iu tbe neighbourhood of which was Mr. Spodea'manufactory ; be go! a table, and placed himself before tbe manufactory,, lor the purpose or obtaining signatures to the petition which bad been resolved upon at the Meeting. He bad not been long Ibere before a person came out from Mr. Spadss't aud told biui that be musl remove, as be was on Mr. Spodes' ground. Deakin, not wishing to do any thing wrong, went away, observing, thai it was not bis intention to make any disturbance; he removed to the liigb road, and bid uot long been I here before Mr. Spodes'gates were opened, and an eugiuc brought out of bis premises, Ibe pipe of which was directed towards Ibe prosecutor, aad began lo play upon him with tbe greatest Violence, until all the water which it contained was exhausted. Il was again filled, aud Ihe defendants pursued him, drenching him with water. Tbe result of which was, Ibat Ibe prosecutor tewk cold, and was for some lime attended by a medical gentleman. Whether Ibe Jury were friendly or hostile lo Reform or u. trt, was a mailer which Ibey ought upon the preseut occasion to leave out of their consideration. Tbpir province aloue was conscientiously lo say, whether tbe defendants bad far had Uot violated tbe law; if Ihey had, tbe prosecutor woolil be entitled lo a verdict at their hands ; and if any point of law should arise with respeel to tbe offence being constituted a riot, the Jnry would receive it froui a much higher authority, therefore be should abstain from any observation on that bead : tbe Learned Counsel then called Thomas Deakin, who deposed ( hat he lived at Shelton, near Stoke. About twelve moulhs since, or a Utile belter, he was taking a Petition for Parliamentary Retorui rouud the country, to get signatures to i t ; he went ( o Sloke, lo Mr. Spodes1 manufactory, and a person, uamed t ' l a j , came and ordered hita off, and be went from Ibe premises on to tbe turnpike road, Clay came to witness again and told bim lo go off; witness told bim he was ou the turnpike road, and as he was doing holhing amiss, he should not go ; he then went away. Witness was opposite Mr. Spodes' manufactory. Witness saw Mr. Spodes' gai ess hut, aud in about ten minutes he saw them open, and a water engine was brought out. One or Ibe defendants ( Taylor) bad hold or Ibe e n i o r the pipe ; he was guiding il, aud Ibe engine' began lo play upon witness ; he retreated back to Ibe place where he was al first, Ihe) still followed him, turu wbicb way he would. Potts bad bold of Ihe pipe. Hazlehnrst was there. Mr. Pearson— What is Haziehurat ? AVi » ness— A barber. Mr. Pearson— A political bfcrber, eb ? ( A laugh. J Witness continued— Uew- iun was tber, e ; be bad also hold of Ihe pipe. Part of them Were wheeling Ihe engine about; aud there were from 80 to 100 people there. Prosecutor heard them say, " Curse him, follow bim up, and play in bis pockets.'' They played upon bim until all Ihe water was exhausted. He tried to escape, but Ihey fallowed him, and one of them said, " Ctsrse yeu, slop, stop, and stand your ground." Clay w. es Ihe person who said Ibis. He heard many voices say, " Curse bim, follow him out of Stoke."— After tbe water was exhausted, they pulled off their fcals, and gave Ibree huzzas i and aome voices cried out, " Briug more water, bring more water I" Cross- examined by Mr. Dauncey.— How long had you been in tbe petitioning line ?— Only a day or Iwo. What were you lo be paid ? — Three shillings a day. What other lines have von been in besides tbe petitioning? — I was brought up a boatman ; and last March I was a carter ; after that I took to pot- selling; aud after thai my father told me be could pill some bread iu my fingers for life in another way. W hat line was that ' — T o make paste blacking. Mr. Dauncey.— That was putting bread in your lingers indeed! ( A taugh. J From whom were you fo recelvc three shillings a - i a y ?— From a Mr. Parkinson, at llaudley, a schoolmaster; Vwent lo school to blm a bit. What! to qualify yourseir for the petitioning line?— No, not exactly so ; but he promised me 3s. a- day. Ahl when you weregoihg to set all the world lo rights?— I think it would be a good job i f i l was seta little to rights.— ( Laughter.) Mr. Dauncey— Ab! Mr. Deakiu, but thare is an old adage that said it was better to begin al home.— Prosecutor— Yes, Sir, likely it is. Had you a petition ?— Yes, I bad a petition ; Ibere were some words at the top of it, but 1 cannot purtend to say what it was about, but I know il was for Parliamentary Reform. Mr. D. — What is that?— Prosecutor— Eh? Mr. O.— What is that— Parliamentary Reform?— X don't know justly. Mr. O.— No, you neither know nor care, 1 suppose, so long as you get j- onr 3s, a day. Did you get nothing else ?— Those who chose gave a penny or so, lo send it up; tbjs I gave to Mr. l'arkinsou. Did yon explain tbe petition lo those « vbo signed it;— No, it explaiued itself, I have used the words, but I dou't know what Ihey were. Had you not a few lillle phrases of your own to treat Ihejm with ? Little what ? A few phrases— a few words lo address to them 1— Not to Ihe best or my knowledge. Did you not mention any thing about a new king ?— Nol that I know of. Will yon swear you did nol ?— Yes, I will swear it, Mr. D.— That's a good fellow. ( Laughter.)

Borougbmong « rs! do you tbiujf, yon said a liitle about Ibem?— I did express eprne such word as that; now yo. u use it, I ftink I did say sum met about JBorougbmongering factions, but that is almost out of my be^ d. What are Boroughinongering feci, ions?— I don't rightly kpow what it means, but I bave beard Mr. Johnson speak about il, VVhere did you bear bim speak, gopd Mr. Blacking- maker? At Handle)-, I Ibink. What time was that ?— I think about a week before I went about with the petition. You went lo bear him speak, did you ?— Yes, I did. Where did Johnson come from ?— 1 don't kuow— be might have slopped a day or iwo there. Was be acquainted witb the schoolmaster ?— Yes ; I have jeeu Iheui together. Where?— when Mr. Johnion got up to speak, bespoke from a waggon. J was in tbe crowd. I don't recollect seeing bim before that. How long was it after that, that he agreed to give you 3s. a day?— J was ( hred about Iwo or three days before. I was to go from house to bouse to ax people lo be pleased to sign tbe Petition for Parliamentary Reform.. Did you know it was opposite Mr. Spodes' manufactory you had pitched your . lent 1— Yes, Idid. W ere you not iold ypu were not wanted there?— No, I WM uot. Were you going to his men?— No;— I . only went there lo get signatures. I bad a table, which I put dowu in Ihe place. What bad you ?— A table. Where did you get it?— 1 got it from a neighbour ; hut I don't know who brought it to me, but I carried it lo Mr. Spodes', opposite his manufactory. Mr. J. burrough- Did you go for l i e purpose of getting the signatures of Mr. Spod. es' manufactnrers ? — Yes, I did. Mr. Duuncey-- l should like to have the speech you made on tba, lx) ccasiou, because it in likely I shall never have an op. portuuity to hear such another?—/ l. auyliter.)-- l can't recoiled what I said. It was upon Ibe petition. It is gone up, and was received by Parliament. Tbe petition bad two leaves, which were pinned together. Mr, D.— Well, now that you have got yaur table, yourself, and your petiiiou before the manufactory— now fire a w a y— tell lis what you said?— I don't know. Did you tell ( be people to go lo church?— I did not mention church or cbapei; I forgot the words I said. Mr. D.— Give ns ( he substance— I dop't know bow ; all I recollect was, that I axed them lo sign the petition, Mr. D.— Did you see a Mr- Martin?— 1 might have seen Martiq on the road j I know not whether f saw him op ijiaf day or not. Mr../. Burrougb.— Did you not go to Ihe manufactory purposely lo catch tbe men as tht) came out from work ?— Prosecutor— Yes; I went to get them lo siga 1 » , because I had not got any signatures from any of the houses where I h id called, Mr. J. Barrough— llow' ir-' ny signaiures did you get from Ihe bouses?— I tbink uol mote than ftve or six ; but 1 got a good many from Ibe people at the table, Mr, J. Burrough— Wliat did you say to IndOce Ihemlo sign il ?— I forget what the words were I said to tbem ; they were uot those used in the petition. Cross- examination continued, — l ie had been desired to go away during the time bit was accosted. When be was getting signatures. Clay told bim to stand his ground, but be was much confosed by ibe water being played vpon bim. He recollected saying, " I will make yon repent ot i t ; you have done just what I wanted," They laughed and shouted at bim, and that was the reason wby be Used those words, and by usiug tbem be thought Ihey would give over. Mr. Dauncey.— You thought that after a shower would come a sunshine. Did tbe squib go through the petition thus ? ( taking up a sheet of his brief aud pushing bis fiuger through II)— l. oud laughter. I don'l know thai it w#> l through It; it was very wet, but I think I put it under my coat. As soon as tbe water was all gone I went away, a person look me up and bad me shifted. Mr. Dauncey.— I shall not follow you through Ibat part or your story, as it might be dangerous. What did you dp atler you had shifted yourself? I dried the papers and went petitioning again. 1 went as far as Ihe Vine Ina, » t Sloke. Mr. Dauncey.— You exposed ypurself and the petition again, did you?— Yes, but not in tbe same way ; I know 1 should uot iike lo be exposed again in tbe same way. ( Laughter.)— 1 Iben went to Mr. Parkinson and got paid, Mr, Dauncey.— How much did ypu get in pence?— It might be about a shilling. Several hundreds signed it tbat did nut pay. Mr. Dauncey.— And you have never been petitioning since ? — No, I had a enough of it. ( A laugh.) I carry on my blacking trade now. Mr. Dauncey.— You mean lo say yon are a shilling cbarac ler ?— I don'l now much about that. Mary Atkins was next called. She stated that she was i married woinau ; she was present wheo they where playing tbe engiue ujiou tbe prosecutor ; they were as violent as Ihey could be. He walked off, but they slill pursued him, pour ing tbe water on bim. Hazelhursf, Taylor, and Wood were there; Deakiu conducted himself peaceably and quietly,— This closed tbe case for tbe prosecution. Mr. Dauncey uow rose to address Ibe Jury en bebair oT ( be defendants. He was not a little surprised that his Learned Friend should have first recommended the Jury to divest themselves of all political feeling ou the occasion, and immediately afterwards adopt tbat very feeling by calling one of the derendauts a pelitical barber.—( Laughter.)— There was an old saying, aud a very correct ons, tbat persous who lived iu glass houses sbonld not Ibrow stones. In the course of bis life he had beard it admitted on all sides that there were conversations to be found far more pleasing than subjects which partook of a political character; and he believed there were very few persons who had engaged in It, who bad not felt Ihat it generally produced discord. His Learned Friend had fell a little al a loss to know how he ( Mr. D.) intended lo treat this subject— whether be should treat it with levity, as ir it were uonsensical and foolish, or with gravity and a long dissertation upon Parliament Reform— or new Kings, new Constitutions, or tbe Borougbicongering faction. It was but of little consequence; but it WM highly necessary that Ihe Jury should look lo Ihe parties to see who they were; who the prosecutor and who tbe pendants were, lie ( Mr. Dauncey) had heard that the petition was not of so disinterested a nature as some might think; or Ibis, however, be could not speak with much confidence, as he bad never seeu oue carried about. It was not a lit tie . extraordinary, that after passing through a variety of employments, and after having got into one wbicb he had described as capable of bringing bread lo his fingers, tbe prosecutor should bire himself lo carry about a petition, of which i(| was quite evident be either knew no thing, or appeared to know nothing; thai be should have quitted bis valuable business to— Mr. Pearson.— He did uot say beliad left the lassiness, Mr. Dauncey. Mr. Dauncey continued.— He thongbt tbis was a new way of interfering on twe part of bis Learued Friend : il was either for the purpose of diverting bis attention, or what was perhaps equally well undersloodg. of putting him o u t ; bnt at his , time of life, he was not easily put off bis guard by sucb interruptions, He was afraid that tbe prosecutor's blacking business and his Pelitioniog business were united ; be l ad been blacking an old Constitution, to make Way for a new oue— ( a laugh); aud if be bad succeeded in the latter, be never would have returned lo bis old blacking trade. Were we really and seriously in a Court of Justice, and could tbink for a moment, or suppose, while upon English ground— could we be imposed upon to believe, tbat sucb a man as the prosecutor could be useful in Ibe country in which we, live ? Let as look at ourselves, and tee bow we bave existed for a Jung titne under Ihe Constitution. P. ulesof Government, in every Slate, may be perhaps capable of improvement; bnt, he was sure, lo set it right, in any stale or in any country, was not to employ a man, such as the prosecutor, at three shillings a day, lo carry about a petition— a man who admitted that he knew nol it » contents. Even supposing it to be a Peiition, and he had said that it consisted of two sheets of paper pin ned together, and nobody knew whether it was a Petition or not, or whether there was a word in it of that which was presented to the House Of Commons, could the Jury believe that be was a man so ignorant as lie pretended to be ? If he was, be was deceived ; aud if he Was not, be was employed lo do a thing that must bave Ibe most niiscliieVous tendency. What had been ihe result ol those Meetings for Parliamentary Reform? Tbe country bad tottered upon a precipice; we bad seeu the commencement or treason and rebellion: and then it was said it had originated with igndraht people : it might be so ; and be would fearlessly say, tbat sucb men as the prosecutor were formidable instruments lit the hands or those delegated to wield Ibe sceptre ol rebellion. These were the ignorant people who were lo substitute remedies, without cause or meaning : " Felix qui potuit rerum cognoscere causas." What, bnt mischief, could arise from conduct such as that which bad been described? And, after all, wbat had been done?— to wbom, and under wbat circumstances, to a man who was evidently hawking about a Peiition, for the purpose of entrapping Ibe unwary tosign it? He had been to school, and he ( Mr. Dauncey) should not be6itate in saying, Ihat it was for tbe purpose of qualifying himself l o g o about in Ihe manner described ; and if discontent bad existed, either in that part or at Mr. Spodes' manufactory, he was the person to ferment Jt; fortunately, however, discontent did not exist either in Ihe one or the other, and fortunately he was not Ihe person that could create il. The fact was, he got totbe bouse, talked or dethroning Kings, and raising new Constitutions: he got to Mr. Spodes' manufactory, aud lay in wait lo catch the men as they came Crom their work, aud Ibey applied tbe engine lo- him, and he ( Mr. D,) bad almost said legitimately, for he went lo set bis inflammatory mailer to work amongst Mr, Spodes'men, and ' hey took the readiest means lo extinguish bis flame—( laughter): he excited a Same, and they put a little water on him and extinguished it. He would . appeal to the Jpry, and ask tbem if they, as schppl- boyt, bad done • such a Ihi'ng at school, Ihey . would afterwards bave thought ot an indictment ? One of the Jvrots ( vociferously): No, no: certainly n o t .— ( Loud ( ind continued laughter.) Under Ihese circumstances, he appealed to Ibe Jury, in full confidence tbat they would, without hesitation, find the de. frudants not guilty. Mr. Justice Burroughs, in recapitulatiugtbe evidence lo Ihe Jury, begged that il might be understood that he did not mean lo say, Ibat Ihe people bad not a right to petition for tbe reform of any grievances Ihey considered themselves labouring under : however hiaroeable tbe conduct of the prosecutor might have been, in placing . himself before the manufactory, for Ihe purpose or catching Ibe meu as they came out, his object must have heeu tbis, as be had staled, that be could not get sufficient signatures at tbe houses where be bad called. With respect, however, to tbe defendants, he bad no difficulty in pronouncing that what law called a riot had been committed, and if tbe Jury believed tbe two witnesses, tbe riot and assault upon bis person were made out. If tbey believed this, they were acts highly illegal, and the defendants must be fouud guilty, however improperly Ibe prosecutor might have behaved. Tbe Jury merely turned round lo each other, and to the evident astonishment of tbe Court, pronounced the defendants — Not Guilty. Tilt Learned Judge Immediately belJ, Ihat Ibis vroalit no! do, as the crime consisted in Ibe intent, aud IbaL he nrnst actually be charged for firing at Ibe person be intended lo fire at On tbis ground be directed the Jury to find him— Not Guilty.

Arquinbcu, two young midshipmen, were charged on two indictments, for shooting at two of Ibe inhabitants of Deal, with intent to murder, Ac. As the transaction was detailed in the last case most folly, we shall state that first, Ibe case having been much misrepresented by the country papers: that indictment charged Robillard and Arquiubau, Ihe first with shooting at, and the other with aiding bim ia shooting at J. Williams, at eight o'clock in Ibe eveping or tbe 27th Dec. in King- street, near the Fishmarket, Deal. The prosecutor described himself asa mariner, and slated that he was returning home on the evening ot Ibe 27( b Dec. having been for a walk; when he got into Ihe Fishmarkel he heard the noiseor quarrelling, and saw Mr. Arquinbau disputing with a man of the name or Robinson J be cried out, " Hallo! v » hat' » tbe matter ?" when Robillard stepped up to bim, and said, " you are Ihe fellow that just now insulted me." He replied, ihat he was not, and was ready l o g o before tbe Mayor. Rohillard bad a pistol in his band, and after a few words fired it at bim, and then drew bis cutlass. Tbe prosecutor closed wilb him, and in doing so received a wound across his face, but he succeeded in throwing Robillard down, aud escaped. In cross- examination he denied that he had ever seeu Roblllard to his knowledge before tbat night, or thai be had been smuggling that evening. J. Barnes, a grocer, at Deal, near whose house the affray happened, said, be beard the noise of the dispute between Arquinbau and Robinson, and he went to bis door. He interposed, and thought be bad succeeded in restoring peace, aod bad returned lo bis shop, when be heard Ibe report of a pistol, The ball struck his windo v- sbutler. He came out and found ( be prosecutor and tbe prisoner Robillard struggling on Ibe ground, Barnes, jnn. ibe son of Ihe last witness, said he saw the scuffle ; and he said Ihe prisoner fired the pistol when be was standing about five feel from the prosecutor. The prisoners being called upon for their defence, Robillard read a long paper, wbicb was well composed as lo style aud matter. He lamented Ibe hardship of standing as a culprit at tbat bar, for doiug no more lhau was necessary for his selfdefence aod In tbe performance or a duty which had been imposed upon him by bis superiors, aud not or bis own choice, that or watching the contrabaud traders— a duly he declared much more unpleasant than facing Ihe enemy in open btutle. He lamented also the manner in which they had been treated by Ibe Mayor or Deal, who committed 111 - in lo close custody aud when their Captaip, under whose orders tbey had acted, and whose advice Ibey immediately sought, was refused admission to tbem, ha was told by the Alayor that ibey were hp( b drunk. Thus, not only denying them the consolation and advice of Iheir Commanding Officer, but at Ibe same lime calumniating their character. Tbe County Jonrnals had no less vilified them, by staling their conduct as little short of tbat of assassins or madmen— representing Ibem as wantonly parading Ihe streets, and firing at the passengers at random. He then alluded to Uie state of the town of Deal, fa wbicb he said tbat the habit of illicit trading was so inveterate, thai no reward would induce any iubabilMU lo give information and be held in his band advertisements lo tbe amount of many thousand pounds reward, all of which bad been unavailing. Tbis was tbe place where bis duty and Ill- fortune compelled him lo serve. His vessel was specially appointed lo walcb Ibe smugglers, so that every soul on hoard was obnoxious to ibe whole town. He then detailed a variety or instances in which tbeir Officers and parts of Iheir crew bad been beaten, gagged, thrown overboard, and every insult used against them; and in the case of two seizures which be bad made, he noticed the present prosecutor active amongst those who resetted Ibe goods. Oa tbe eight in question, Ibey had seutries along tbe shore on tbe watcb, and it was his duly to go from post to post. It happened Ibat as he and his brother Officer were passing tbe High- street, be saw three or four men loaded with baskets, such as Ibey carry tubs in. He pursued, but they escaped, except oue, whom he overlook. Tbe prosecutor tben came, and by a blow on the breast knocked him down, wbicb enabled tbe smugglers to escape. As soon as he got up and recovered . himself, be made bis way through Ihe Fisb- markel, aud tben the prosecutor again came up. He immediately said, " You are tbe fellow who insulted me: I will now take you prisoner." Tbeprpsecutpr said, " I will give it ypu again," and immediately put himself in a boxing attitude. Tbe Jury would see that there was no equality of personal strength between them, and therefore he drew his sword, but tbe proseculor rushed in and bore him down ; when tbey were down lie fold tbe prosecutor to desist or he would shoot bim ; to which bisauswer was ". Fire away and be cursed," and kept kueeling on bis breast. He ( ben 4rew his pistol aod fired, not Intending lo kill him, but to a{ armhim; for be could easily bave shot bim through the bead or body, but he fired close to bis head so as lo pass him. Tbe prosecutor then got up and ran away. Now, although there were many witnesses to tbis transaction, and could, of cour>: e, speak to Ihe truth at hi ® statement, yet there was no one who dared give evidence against a smuggler at Deal, and it was with Ihe greatest difficulty be could . procure one to come forward, and he must no more dare return to that place. He delivered tbis address in a very impressive manner, and it evidently bad great effect with the court and jury. Mr. Arquinbau merely said, tbat what bis brother olflcer affirmed was strictly true. Some witnesses were then called, who had examined Ihe mark of Ihe ball in Ibe window- sbulter, and they said from its direction it must have been fired by a person lying on ibe ground. Tbis was confirmed by one witness who saw Ibe transaction. Tbe jury foand hirn— Not Guilty. Tbe first indictment was againit Mr. Arquinban alone. It appeared, Ihat after Robinson ran away, he pursued, and inlending to fire at Robinson, his ball unfortunately hit another parson, and lie was Indicted for firing at tbe person wbom be bit. 20 30 40 50 60 TO 80 00 100 110 120 130 140 150 . . . . 45 . . . . 1 1 9 . . . . 2 48 314 314 . . . . 3 0 1 278 . . . . 8 5 1 . . . . 5 94 250 219 254 217 . . . . 2 19 3,50 » 2T 38 5,995 Total number of Benefices uol exceeding 150/.
