The fa vn is in great consternation and alarm, numbers pouriifg in from ait parts of tiie surrounding country, principally spin. icrs and weavers, both men and women. Ppur creature:! thev are- taught to expect Some wonderful ffii- ct from tlie worth and talents of I Jiiut i It is a new and alarming feature in these mobs that they do not assemble as old English mobs used to do, from motives of individual curiosity, or caprice, or fun, or idleness— they < lo not cume in straggling singly or iu little knots of two or t'. jre< from evcrv different direction ; but literally adwi. ee in marchjng order, with all the form and regularity pf njilitarv bodies- Aliout half an hour ago I met in Oldham- stjreef an immense mass ofnjen, marching in common t ', five abreast, with two white flags, and a very respectable band of music, consisting of not less than 30 performers. I eouutcd these files until about ' i!, 000 i.' icn had passed, when the crowd twaine so great that 1 could no longer pursue my reckoning. Very shortly afterwards a party of perliaps 3,000 passed the Exchange. These also were in military arrav, preceded bv flags, red and black, with the C « / » of Jscoitimam. The former . of the two | xirtias came I be- Sievc from Bury, the latter from Rovtou. Similar parties < « r. ic in from StockjKM* and the otiicr towns in the neighbourhood. I have just been * t she s; x> t appointed for the Meeting. About 15/) 00 persons arc alreadv there, men upd women. ' I'he Chair was not then taken, but the different parties bad already arranged themselves very regularly round two carts, which they Hud brought with them, at - alxmt six vunls distance. A sort of stage was formed on the carts, and around it were planted fire banners ; two red, two white, and one black. Upon one side of tW latter was a hand holding the scales of justicc, with the inscription, "' TemJioif i& tkout Hepresentation is unjust and iyramicsl." On the other side was nt the too " Love," uud beneath, " Untie aud be free."—" Equal Repretcnlatwn, OF. D& a TIS." Oil some of the other Hags were " An Corn Lavs."—" Let, » die like men, and not be sold like slaves, w ith other such violent inscriptions. Whilst the mob were collecting round these standards, and waiting with some impatience for their promised leaders, they were addressed by a shabby- looking fellow, whose name nobody seemed to know. lie exhorted them to be jieaceable and quiet and shew their enemies that thev were not tnad, as they wished to represent them. " Ij'we are uiad," said he, " it is the most pleasant loss of senses I ever experienced, and hope it will never be extinct but with death. At this important crisis it behoves every free- l> om Englishman to abstain from violence. Vi e only desire our fair and just rights : k; t us demand them with steadiness and perseverance,- and victory will be tiie certain result." In the Market-| 4acc and Market- street the shop- windows arc closcd. Jr, the principal streets arc immense juumbers of country people strolling about. ( You are aware, that for many miles round Manchester the manufacturing population is more numerous than in anv other part of Great Britain : it is like walking among ant- hills ; ! K> crowded and so busy are the inhabitants.) The more retired parts of the town are as silent as death. Altogether the impression which the scene creates on the mind of ' an observer is melancholy and awful. The Yeomanry Cavalry musters amazingly well. The Cheshire Ycomanrv are near the town, as well as the First Dragoon Guards. rJhe 1.5th Ilussars are in the barracks, as weH as two companies of Ilorse Artillery; and besides these, the £ 8th and 31st Foot arc also iu towu. In short, here is Military force enough to cjmsh ten such mobs— but what a reflection, that the ( icaee of this great town is so much eudangered as to need military aid— and what a heart must the. wretch have who wantonly exposes his deluded followers to the danger of military attack ! TWO O'CLOCK. ' Die Magistrates have dissolved the Meeting, and ta'- ti If unt and a dozen other Ringleaders into custody! The circumstances have been terrific: I will give you as connected an account of them as I possibly can, but you must make allowances for the general state of confusion and alarm in which we have been the whole of the dav. I will begin where I left off before, with the sort of desul- Sorv harangue which a casual Orator was making, apparently to while away the time till the principal orutjr should arrive. After he had been talking some time in s loose, disjointed manner, he was interrupted by a violent ehoutj which announced the approach of Hunt. It was witljin a few minutes of one o'clock when Hunt reached the hustings. He was said to be accompanied bv Wooler, but I coukl not sae the Black Dwarf, nor do I believe he was there; but Johnson, Moorhouse, Saxton, Swift, and Tyas, were in tire barouche, on the box of which was seated a profligate Amazon, named Mary Waterworth, bearing the standard of the Stockport Female Reformers. Several others of the Stockport gang surrounded the yehicle. After the formality of proposing and seconding Hunt as Chairman, lie rose and spoke to the following effect:— " Gentlemen, I crave your indulgence while I proceed to state the nature and object of this meeting, aud I particularly request that no gentleman will call " silence," as it produces more disorder tiian miv other circumstance, and |> erbaps will give ftur enemies the opportunity they are seeking for to cause a further encroachment on our rights and liberties. Gentlemen, for the honour you have done me in electing me Chairman on this important occasion, I return voii mv sincere and heartfelt thanks. I am happy to see such an immense concourse of jieople assembled, and fearfully regret that I shall not be able to make myself heard by all of you, but those who are able to hear me will I hope do so peaceably and quietly. It is useless to attempt to relate the proceedings that hare occurred in your town for the last ten days, or to state to you the cause of the meeting on Monday being |) ostpoued, you are all acquainted with it. Those wise Magistrates, who were the cause of preventing the meeting on Monday fast, fancied they had achieved a glorious victory, but their pusillanimous conduct since, and the presence of such an immense and respectable assembly as now stands before me, proves quite the contrary. A placard v.' hreh nobody could understand had been posted up all over the town, signed bv Tom Long aud Jack Short, and some such contemptible beings," lie was about to proceed, but the appearance of the cavalry in the distance stopped for a moment the torrent of abuse which he was about to lavish on Jack Short and Tom Long, and with a malicious grin be waved his hat in token of defiance, and exhorted the meeting to cheer them, but when he taw them approaching near to the Hustings the colour fled from his cheeks, the grin forsook his countenance, and lie Stood apparently ready to sink into the earth. The b- oldiers advanced and surrounded the hustings, when Mr. • Nadin, with the utmost resolution,- seized hold of Johnson fir-!, then of Hunt, and afterwards of several- others, whom lie handed to his assy fan is, and the latter carried them all immediately to the New Bailey. The banners were the next objects to which the Police Officers dirceit'd their attention, and with very little resistance they got possession of the whole of them. The scene that now ensued was truly ,- jwful! The shrieks of women and the groans of men were to be heard at some distance. Every person who attended out of curiosity, finding Ills personal safety at risk, immediately fled : and where was then the Iwasted courage of these mad- headed Reformers ? They were seen retreating iu all directions with the utmost spee. l. The crush was so great in one part of the fiekl, that it knocked down some out- buildings ttt the end of a row of houses, ou which there were at least twenty or tliirtv persons, wjth an immense crash. As I was carried along by the crowd, I saw several almost buried in the ruins. Others in their anxiety to escape had fallen down, aud were trampled on by tiie populace, many of them to death. A feeling of stiuve qui peut appeared now to fill the mind of every body ; and the dreadful result is not vet laiowi;. The Yeomanry Cavalry arrived, on the ground at full sjieed. They took up a position under the. wall of " The Cottage," ( a well- known building so called) where they remained in line about five minutes, during which time 1 believe the Riot Act was read, immediately after which they made a dash into tlie crowd and took Hunt and the oti . r desperadoes into custody, in the manner that I have already related. The Yeomanry were supported by the 15th Ilussars. Among the spolia opirna they say arc to be reckoned sixteen banners with seditious inscriptions, and six Co| w of Jacobinism. At the moment when Hunt was seixed, there could not liave been fewer than 50,000 persons on the ground ; but fortunately the Magistrates here have no Alderman Waithman among them to encourage the mob, bv his declamations against superior audio* i- ity. Half- past Two o Clock. I have just ascertained that a dragoon and a woman have fallen victims. A man of the name of Ashworth, a special constable, is also dead. The accompanying is a list of the delinquents already in custody. Warrants have been issued against several others, but thev arc not vet taken ; — HeiirV Hunt Joseph Johnson John Tyas George . Swift John Thicker Savtoq Robert Wild Thomas Taylor iry '' ater Sarah Hargreaves Elizabeth Gaunt Valentine Faulkner James Johnson William Billingc llaif-} Kist Three o'Clock. The military are fwrading the streets, and the jiopulacc have retired. Nearly the whole of the persons who were on the build iug l> efore mentioned that fell iu have been killed,, eleven at the least are named. Four o'Clock. Knight has just been apprehended, and is curried to the Poliee- OIficc. Half- past Four o' Clock. Moorhouse has also this momeut lioen apprehended aud carried to the Police- office.

Twelve o'clock this day was tiie time fixed u[ ioii for Hunt taking the Chair, to preside at the meeting, which was intended to have taken place last week, but which ( to use Hunt's own words, in his Address to the Reformers,) had been post/ xmed for a week.— It is evident, therefore, that though the language of the Requisition was changed, yet that it was considered merely adjourned for one week, aud that their proceedings would not lie changed. Before twelve o'clock crowds of persons began to assemble, each town or haiftlut having Banner, and some a Cap, with " LIBERTY" upon it: each party, as they came through the streets, kept in military order, with sticks shouldered ; and, to make as much display as | X) ssible, did not go to the ground, where the meeting was to be held, by the nearest tout, but marched through the principal streets to the scene of action. By about one o'clock tdl the persons from the neighbouring Townships of Ashton, Royton, Middleton, Saddlcworth, Oldham, Bolton, Stockjxirt, Failsworth, Bury, & c. & c. had arrived, and arranged themselves in regular order, the flags and ca]> s being placed iu a regular hue, ami extended the whole breadth of the ground. A banner with a black ground and large white letters, was brought by the Saddlewprth and Mosley mob. On one side was painted " Taxatiand no Representation is ' Tyrannical and unjust" and on tho reverse " No Boroughmongering '— " Unite and be FREE"— Equal representation or DE A TH. " On another Banner " Die like tucn and not be sold like staves." On a third, " Major Cart- wright s Bill, and no Corn Lawson a fourth " Unity aud Fraternity"— reverse, " Strength and Libertyon a fifth, " No Corn Laws," and the figure of a bloody dagger, & c & c. There were in the whole 18 flags and 5 Ca| W of Liberty. The Magistrates took their station at a gentleman's house within sight of tiie Meeting, and a chain of Special Constables kept a communication open to the hustings. it was twenty minutes after one o'clock before Hunt ap|> eured on the ground, lie came ( preceded by a band of music,) iu an open carriage; Johnson and some others were with him. A female rode on the box with the driver, bearing a flag with a figure of Justice painted upon it, and the words " Manchester Female Union. A great number of the men had a kind of distinguishing badge in their hats made of white cloth •— They frequently called to each other, " Lad; take care of voqr white rags." On Hunt's arrival at the hustings, he was received with three cheers. Johnson proposed that Hunt should take the Chair, which was carried by loud and continued cheering. Hunt then said " Gentlemen, I must entreat that you will lie peaceable, a great deal depends upon that, and I trust all who hear ine will remain quiet.— And all I ask for is, that no confusion may take place during the proceedings. It is impossible' to make ourselves heurd by ail who arc assembled, but I wish those who do, will tell their fellow- countrymen.— It is useless to call their attention to the reason why the meet ingyas pat off to this dav, only to observe that those who had acted in the degrading mariner t'uev had, taking advantage of , t few words not quite conformable to the 1 established law, instead of having ^ triumphed as thev thought, have f'ytiml the difference, for in consequence of the delay, the Reformists have doubled their numbers, and now they have triumphed," At this moment, several companies of foot soldiers appeared in sight, and presently the Manchester Yeomanry Cavalry galloped down Mosleystreet,, and having immediately formed their line towards the hustings, and after cheers from each party, thev made a charge and surrounded tiie hustings almost in an instant, A kind of battle ensued, but the Yeomanry succeeded in taking Hunt, Johnson, and Saxton into custody. A few troops from the banacks, as well as the Cheshire cavalry, came upon the ground, almost at the same time, and charged in all directions— the space was very soo- i cleared, aud scores of hats, shoes, & c. were left on the ground, almost all the flags and caps of liberty were seized— the rest were destroyed. Hunt, Fitton, Johnson, and Knight, arc no-. v in the New Bailey. One of the Special Constables, ( Mr. Ashwortli, of tlie Bull's Head, in Manchester) is unfortunately killed, having got mixed in the crowd and trampled to death. Several persons are wounded, including two females, who were in the cart ; these two are kept in custody. A brick bat was thrown at Mr. John Hulme, one of the yeomanry, which brought him to the ground, and he is now dangerously ill. A person of tiie name of Tate, in Oldhamstreet, and who is a special constable, having made himself active in the discharge of his duty, the circumstance became known to the Reformers, and this evening his shop was attacked with stones, & c. and every window broken ; so soon as the military could be informed they went up and dispersed the crowd, and then took tlieir station at the New Cross ( tiie disaffected district of the town). The military cleared the streets several times, but the crowd gathering again immediately after the soldiers had quitted the place, and < he night approaching fast, the Magistrates saw the necessity of some decisive measures, and therefore, after the Riot Act had been read, and the streets once more cleared, on the crowd re- assembling the soldiers fired right and left, and some of the mob fell, the numbers of the wounded are not yet asccitaineJ ; from eight to ten will be the extent. ELEVEN O'CLOCK, P.. M. I am this moment informod a soldier has lieen struck by a stone on his horse a short time ago in Deansgate and is now dead. HALF- PAST ELEVEN-. The town is tolerably quiet. Military patroles are sta tioned in almost every street. The two men abused by the Framers at Whita Moss are still confined to their bed. It appears Murray saved his life by going on his knees and taking an unlawful oath which they administered to him. ( EXTRACT OF ANOTHER LETTER.) MANCHESTER, 5 O'CLOCK, P. M. About eleven o'clock immense uurabers came into the town from every direction. The Reformers from Royton Oldham, Ashton, and Stockport, were the most numerous and most completely organised. Some were headed by bands of uiusic, others liad bugles, which they sounded occasionally ; they all bore flags, with different inscrip lions. The pi'incijml part of them were stout men, with sticks or clubs ; but there were a few Female Reformers. They marched in regular order, aud in ranke of three or four each, and the word " I- efl, bj't," was repeated evcrv time the left foot was put down. It became necessary for one of these regiments to halt for some reason, when the van was in Old Mitigate, one of the most crowdeu j> arts of the town. Tiie word " Halt" was shouted, and instantly obeyed through the whole line, which afterwards took about haff art hour to pass. Aijout a quarter past one, Hunt arrived on the field. His procession consisted of many thousands, with flags, dr. and was aliout an hour and a half coining from Smedlcv. It passed by the Exchange. At the corner of Quaystreet, lie waved his hat in a most insolent way to some officers. He was in an ojjen barouche, with many political characters, male aud female, When, he arrived at tiie Hustings, lie took the Chair. The crowd there assembled consisted probably of 60 or 70,000. Numerous caps of liberty, flags, and bands of music were among them. Several flags were particularly remarkakle : one with a blood- red pike at the top of the pole ; another, a black flag, inscribed " No Boroughmongering— Unite' and lie Free— Equuj Representation or Deatli;" reverse, " No Corn Laws— Taxation without Representation is Unjust and Tyrannical — Saddlcwortli, Lees, and Mosley Union." Another red flag was inscribed, " Let us Die like Men, and not be sold like Slaves;" reverse, " Liberty is the Birthright of Man." The Magistrates were placed iu a house near the Hustings, with a line of special constables extending from them iu order to report. After Hunt had spoken about ten minutes, a Company of the Manchester Yeomanry Cavalry rode up to the Hustings, end surrounded it, for the puqiose of protecting the civil jiower in apprehending Hunt und the other s|> eakers. Instantly, the mob assailed them with stones and sticks, and attempted to unhorse them. Mr. John Hulme, son of Mr. Ot'tio Huline, well known to the London merchants, was struck with a bottle, and then unhorsed and so wounded, as to be expected to die before morning. Report says, the man who wounded him was immediately cut down. • *- Whilst thus engaged in assaulting the Yeomanry, tiic mob were almost instantly surrounded by the other military, which came in all directions. They consisted of the 15th Hussars, the 31st poot, 88th Toot, parties of the 6th Dragoons, and Flying Artillery with two cannon, and the whole of the Cheshire Yeomauary. The confusion then became dreadful; numbers were thrown down and trampled upon. The mob rallied at different points, and threw stones at the military. The eavalrv then charged amongst them, aud many were hurt with sabre cuts. The numbers killed or wounded cannot be ascertained. Mr [ Ashwori!;, a - spgckT cc Many woaaoed lay on the ground. Abo: it 4- 0 or £ 0 were taken to the Infir. nary ; near 20 had slight woun- ls, which were speedily dresse 1, The remainder are very seriously injured ; several not expected to fecover. Serjeant Barnes, of the Manchester Yeomanry, war. ljo seriouilv wounded. The flags and the caps were all seiaed. Hunt, Johnson, Knight, an t many others were taken to the New Bailey on foot. Several of tiie Female Reformers were taken in coaches ; many of whom, I am sorry to say, were much hurt. HALF PAST SHVEN. Parties of military are proceeding in ail directions, escorted by constables. Great apprehensions are entertained for the result of the night. ( ANOTHER LETTER,- SAME DATE.) I st^ ze the opportunity of giving you a hastv, but accurate, account, as far as itgoes, of the proceedings of Huut and his partisans, yesterday und to- day, in this town and neighbourhood; and whilst I lament, in common with every well- wisher to order and good government, that the miscreants who have been the cause of kuch dreadful calamities may escape with impunity, 1 cannot but rejoice that tiie Volunteer Cavalry of our own place should have taught asscmliled thousands, that the Jaws are not to be Jjut down b lawless assemblies, however numerous. The notoriety of the people of the adjacent towns training to arms, & e. induced a Mr. Murray, and two or three of his friends, to proceed to a place in tiie neighbourhood of Manchester, called White Moss, to ascertain their numbers, & c.; and they were on the spot before daylight in tiie morning of Sunday ( yesterdav,) where tli* y found many hundred men assembled, and going through tlieir exercise as regular troops. Unfortunately, JVLr. Murray was recognised, aud known to be a loyal and active man. He was immediately surrounded, abuscj, and beaten by as many as could get at him; aud he iiviid in the greatest agony until this day. He lias left a v. iie and family to lanicnt his loss. His friends that were wilh him were also abused and wounded. This is onK' tl> e preface of to- day's tragedy. Hunt h: i » been actively canvassing all the conn try round, ever since hist Monday, for a full attendance ut his meeting to- day, and about eleven o'clock people from the country began to come into town, generally in large bodies and in marching order ; nearly three thousand came from rliddleton and its neighbourhood, preceded by a woman bearing a flag. In'itiauy instances, the different bodies were accompanied by a female standard bearer. About one o'clock Mr. Hunt and his party proceeded tx> St. Petersfield, down Market- street, past the Exchange, and through Dean's Gate. The mqti was immense ; terror pervaded the whole town, and all the shops v. ere aliut up on his rout.— He was seated in an ojien landau with Johnson, Knight, and two others ; a woman with a flkig was seated on the box beside tlie coachman, and tiie flu ' . . . . ® was surmounted by a red pap. They took their station on the scaffold erected in l> i. Petcrsfield, and Hunt began to harangue the mob in fcrj usual style ; hut before any of tlie other worthies had ti » ie to sjKjechify, the Maiwheater Volunteer Cavulry t'hurg^. 1 up St, Peter's- strest, surrounded the scaffold, tn » l took Hunt, Chapman, Knight, and together with the flags, and the wo nan who bore Hunt's flag, and fodgad them all in the New Bailey Prison, where they stUl ar*. ' I he mob threw stones, at the cavalry, and wounded ui- ariv. Mr. Hutme was cut with some eh. ; p instrument, and is dead, as is also n Mr. As. hwo. rth, a Special CoimtnbU, wlio were all ou du$ y ; others are wounded ; but I cannot ftbtaiu a correct account; but of the uiob there are ra tiie Infirmary patients alreadv, and there have bec- u upwar Js of 50 in all to have their wounds dffcsed. I bay* not time to say more, only thai a riot still continues iii the New Crass and thereabouts. But i trus- i this dttv has given the country people such a lesson as Mr. Hunt will no{ have it in his [ Kiwcr to make them forge*. TEN O CLOCK. The towu is in great confusion. On Friday, the following illustrative Aivewiiotc waj posted in our streets : — '• H U N T ' S G S I f y i S * ; HEEIL " J I u s i ' s first appearance iu public lift was as & puftSc firenn'.

The events of yesterday will bring down upon the name of Hunt, and his accomplices, the deep and lasting execrations of many a sorrowing family, and of the wtil- affected members of society at large. Willi a factions perverseness peculiarly their own, they have set at open defiance the timely warnings of the Magistracy, and having daringly invited the attendance of a mass of people, which, as it respeefs yesterday's muster, may, with much reason, be computed at 100,000 individuals, they proceeded to address them with language and suggestions of tire usual desperate and malevolent character. That such a rtate of things has existed quite long enough must be admitted bv every good man ; and yesterday's proceedings shewed, that the Revolutionary attempts of- this base junto was no longer M be toleratei'. killed ou the spo It was not until near one o'clock that this lellow ai: d his jtnmcnse moo traversed the streets, by an indirect route, towards the place ot' meeting near* St. Peter's Church. The first notable object in the procession was a board exalted above the crowd, bearing the specious inscription " Order;" next came- a miserable bund of musicians ; and in about the centre of the phalanx, the odious instigators of the day's calamity, vi?. Hunt, Johnson, Knight, and another Worthy, carried in an open hackn'cy coach ; upon the box wasdisplayedananiwi/ c specimen ot'thc female branch of these philanthropists, who was very busy buffetting the air as she went along with a white handkerchief; the red cap of liberty held a prominent place in the procession, and several flags with the usual inflammatory sentences were displayed. They halted,' as they have been accustomed, opposite the Exchange, while they astounded all ears with continued shouting and clapping of hands.' " About half- past one, they arrived at the area appointed for their performance^ and the leading characters ascended the hustings. Hunt was proposed ana accepted as Chairman, and some preliminary business had lieen entered upon, altogether occupying about twenty minutes, when the bugle sounded, and the Manchester and Salford Yeomanry Cavalry, who, pursuant to instructions, had been iu attendance about ten minutes, advanced in full charge through t', e multitude, and surrounded the Orators upon their own stage, who were ull taken into custody, and consigned forthwith to the New Bailey prison. Hunt demurred, and said he would surrender to no one but a Magistrate ; a Gentleman in the Commission then appeared, and the whole were given up to the special pro. tcction of Mr. Nadin, The loth Hussars and the Prince Regent's Regiment of Yeomanry Cavalry next approachcd, nnd routed the throng, with the utmost dismay, in all directions. The constituents of the meeting were formed of six divisions, to each of which was attached a red cap of liberty, and no less than fifteen flags, with a variety of inscriptions, were exhibited; Now ensues a most painful and melancholy part of our recital; the neoessary ardour of the troops in the discharge of their duty has led, we lament to say, to some fatal aud many very serious accidents. A respectable innkeeper ( Mr. Ashworth, < if the Bull's ILad,) who wa » officiating as a Special Constable, was rode over and mortally wounded ; another young man, who is at present unknown, experienced the same fate ; Mr. A. Tilford, innkeeper, has been most dangerously hurt; another unfortunate suftprer lies dead in the Infirmary, and several are without hopes cf'recoverv; there are eighteen in- patients there, ( principally FrtJm Oldham, Saddlewdrth, Middleton, & c.) and 3' 2 out- patients ; a Considerable number have been taken wounded to their own homes. A most worthy and respectable young gentlenian, a Member of our Yeomanry, is lingering in the Infirmary— every moment expected to lireathe his last: during the charge, he was assailed by a brick- bat, which brought him off his horse, when he was rode over, and had his skull fractured: the extent of injuries received is truly heart- rending ; we fear what we haVe already stated will prove to be strictly within compass. The Cheshire Yedmariry consist of eight troops, ( 600 ben), who, with the other forces, ( the Manchester and Salford Yeomanry, the Hussars, the 31st and 88th Regiments of Foot), dre indefatigable in the execution of their duty. T; vo pieces of artillery appeared upon the field, but they were hot used. Amongst the captured in tue New Bailey are Hunt, Johnson, Morehouse, ( of Stockport,) Knight, Saxton, a person of the name of Tyre, and three women, amongst ' them the lady who rode through the streets upon the box of the coach. At twelve o'clock, the shops^ nd warehouses were universally shut, and business of every description suspended throughout the remaining part of the day. Mercury Office, Seven o'Clock. The Ridt Act has just been read at the New Cross, in consequence of the windows of Mr. Tate, grocer, being entirely demolished by stones from the pave- . ment. The town certainly wears an alarming aspect at the pre3ent moment, but wo are well supplied with military protection, and thsir exertions and resolute conduct are truly praiseworthy, and a theme cf gencfal eulogiunn Eight o'Clock. Our respected fellow townsman in the Infirmary, we are jurt informed, is now haplessly no more. [ From the Manchester Herald ) On Sunday morning an unequivocal svmptoms of Rebellion wa3 manifested. Understanding that a party of Reformers were to exercise in. Military Manoeuvres, on the White MOS3, riear Blakely ( four miles from Manchester), at a very, early hour Mr; Murray, baker in Withy Grove, who is an active special const- Able, and Mr; Shaw- cross, . clerk in the constable's office, with a wish to ascertain the fact of the exercise, by a personal view, they went td-. vards t! ie ground where the Rebels ( for what other name is so correct) were assembled, to the number of from two to three thousand. Messrs. Shawcross and Murray were recognised by the out- sentinels, about half a mils from the body ; these attacked and beat them with clubs in the most unmerciful manner, nor did they cease, till both their victims fainted ; when, thinking they had fully ' accomplished their bloody purpose, they ran off. The sufferers were taken to Middleton, for surgical assistance, and afterwards brought in a post- chaise to Manchester, where they now both lay dangerously ill of their wounds. We now come to the eventful MONDAY, August 16th, to which so many persons resident— and so many at a distance, who have friends in Manchester,— have looked forwaid with considerable anxiety. Early in the morning, the Municipal Authorities caused precausionarv placards,- of which the following is a copy, to be posted throughout the town :—• " The Borouglireevcs and Constables of Manchester snd Sahorii most earnestly rccommcnd the peaceable and well- disposed Inhabitants of those towns, as much as possible to remain in their awn houses, during the whole of THIS DAY, Mondav, August 16, nnd to keep their CHILDREN and SERVANTS within doors." Bv ten o'clock, a great body of Special Constables assembled in readiness, in St. James's- square; and the different militarv corps were resting on their arms, prepared for tlie call of the Magistracy, it' their services should be deemed requisite. Soon after e'evi n o'clock, several columns of Reformera marched in military order, with colours flying, into town. That from Stockport, through Moseley- street to rhe Blanketfmld, where the Meeting was ajipointed,— d one from Rovton, Saddleworth, < Vc. through £ U . - i j g pitch, Old the Market- place, Deansgate, iic. to the same piae?. The body was immense, and though grieved that so many of our fellow subjects should place themselves in such a situation, we were still more sorry to observe that a very considerable number of women and children formed a part , of the procession, to which their leaders, themselves, must have attached an idea of danger, as one of their Banners was a Black Plag, oil which was inscribed " Universal Suffrage or Death," and two of those detestable emblems of Rebellion and Anarchy, Caps of Liberty, were borne in insulting triumph, as marshalling standards, as if in defiance of every feeling and principle of Loyalty, Peace, and Good Order. Soon after twelve o'clock, the Magistrates and a body of Constables repaired to the ground, to which the brigaded Reformers had marched, and in consequence of depositions made befor? several of his Majesty's Justices of the Peace, bv many of the most respectable inhabitants of the towns of Manchester and Salford, in which they stated their apprehension of riot and tumult as the probable consequence of such an assemblage of persons from distant townships, marched thither under banners so explicit of rebellious intentions, the R I O T A C T was read, but it did not appear to be much attended to by the infatuated crowd, who continued to scowl and laugh at the Constables, & c « iu attendance. At one o'clock another procession passed the Exchange, escorting H U N T to the place of Meeting; for the G R E AT M AN, perhaps to enhance his consequence, made the would- be Legislators wait for him, although their Advertisement stated that the Chair would lie taken at Twelve o'clock. The leader of this band bore a large club, and he was followed by some hundreds of men and boys, who marched in columns, with military step, to the music of a regular baud, dressed in grey uniforms. By the colours which were displayed, the van, at least, were from Oldham. After them, was borne a board elevated on a pole, and as if in downright mockery, on both sides was painted " ORDER, ORDER." Almost immediately before the barouche, in which Hunt rode, was borne the same Flag and Cap of Liberty, which were displayed on his first visit to Manchester. Oil the box of the carriage, was seated a woman 1 bearing a Flag,; and in the open carriage stood the main - Pivot of Mischief ; several other persons were seated in it, but we did not learn their names. The carriage was followed bv many hundred men and boys, in the order above described, with colours flying. They marched through Deansgate, in which, and in all other streets through which they passed, all the shops were shut up. Oil arriving at the hustings, Mr. Hunt and his friends ascended it, amidst the shouts of the greatest assemblage of people ever collected at one point in Manchester. \ Ve understand the Travelling Orator had begun to address the Reformers, when au hour having expired, after the reading of the Riot Act, the warrants of the Magistrate's » i* vere carried into effect. The Yeomanry Cavalry, in support of the police officers, armed with warrants from the Magistrates, dashed through the crowd, surrounded the hustings, and arrested Henry Hunt, Jos. Johnson, Joh: Tyas, George Swift, John Thacker Saxton, Robt. Wild, Thomas Taylor, Mary Waterworth, Sarah Hargreaves, and Eliza Grant, who were carried off the field, and sent immediately, under escort, to the New Bailev Prison, whilst Caps of Liberty, and the Banners of Rebellion were destroyed and trampled in the dirt, along with many hundreds of persons, who were thrown down in the consequent confusion. At the moment the seizure was made by the Yeomanry, the 15th Hussars, and the 31st and 88th Regiments of Foot, a Brigade of Artillery, and the Cheshire Yeomanry, made their appearance on the ground, which was soon cleared of the immense body of ]> cop! e who had so lately occupied it with shouts of triumph. In carrying this into effect, we are concerned to state, that several persons were killed, trampled to death upon the spot, and many others wounded, some bv the sabres of the Cavalry, and others by the trampling of the ho; se3. At the moment of surrounding the hustings, a shower of brick- bats and paving- stones were hurled at the Yeomanry, several of whom were struck, one so severely, that he dropped the reins and his horse fell, bv which he was pitched off, and his skull was fractured. He was carried to the lnfimiarv, and at four o clock all hope of his recovery was fled. Besides this gentleman, there were 17 other in- patients brought from the scene of action ( six of who'. n are since dead), and 30 other persons, whose wo. unds being slight, they were dressed and sent home; )' esides the above, we understand six other persons were killed, one of whom was Mr. Ashworth, df the Marketplace, who was bn duty as a Special Constable. In the course of the afternoon, the following persons were taken into custody, in addition to those taken up in the field, viz.— Valentine Faulkner, James Johnson, William Billinge, William Bolton, Edward Pcrrins, Thomas Kesugh, James Moorhousc, John Knight, Isaac Murray, Thomas Ashtdn, Thomas Wdrthingtdn, Abraham Whittaker; Win; Ashworth, Moses O'Hara, James Makin, Thomas Johnson; John Wild, Anthony Jefferson, & c; and a great number of rioters, from various parts of the town, were escorted in the evening by the cavalry, to the New Bailey; The peoplfi who had marched into town bv thousands seemed unwilling to depart home for several hours; but with a'view to tho Conservation of the Peace, the Magistrates ordered all the public- houses to be cleared, at a very early hour in the evening; this had a tendency to abate the stbpii of confusion; but at eight o'clock, the mob were so outragedus in the vicinity of the New Cross, that the Ridt Act was read after the Constables had exercised the greatest possible patience, in the endeavdtir to disperse the tumultuous multitude. There is every reason to fear that the military would be obliged to act in a way, which every friend of humanity will deplore; for the forbearance they have shown, has been tried to the extreme. MANCHESTER, Monday Night, Eleven o'Clock. The town is now in peace andquietness forthe moment, but threats of vengeance and predominant in a very great degree. Since my former communication I have visited the Infirmary of this town, and ascertained, precisely, the number of victims who have fallen in this catise. The number of wounded men may be stated, at a moderate calculation, at eighty. One unfortunate victim is a Gentleman of the name of Hulme, who is a resident of the town of Manchester, and an individual of great property, as well as respectability, and has only been a few months married. He was in the charge that surrounded the hustings, and some miscreant aimed a blow at him with a brick, which had effect, and levelled him with the ground, and in the fall he fractured his skull, which will ultimately be his death ; he lingers at present in great agony. Three persons are already dead. After the meeting the populace assembled in great mobs at New Cross, a place which Is inhabited by the Irish, and other persons of desperate character ; their conduct was such as to require the interference again of the militarv, whose presence proving insff. ctunl, they were compelled to haV? ivCiiursi to coercive measures, and fired on the deluded multitude ; the consequence was, that one per » oii was shot throuog h the back ti iart of tli'j skull,' the Wound of wliq- li is mortal; another is this moment undergoing amputation in the leg; and several other persons are Carried to the Infirmary dreadfully wounded. It is really distressing to be witness of this awful necessity ; but the only cu'cumstaWce that can reconcile. our feelings to it - is, that it will ultimately lib attended with beneficial effect; The mob in New Cross proceeded to great length's, ahd actually broke o'pen' a shop in the rieighboiarh. iod, and every respectable person who happened to be passing Was stoned. Had it not been for th'e interference of Mr. Nadiif, tlliii' Deputy Constable, whom these men have, particularly calumniated, it is certain that Hunt would not now have been alive, for tlie military were determined to cut him' to pieces. The loval inhabitants of Manchester, and loyal they certainly arc, felt themselves imperatively called upon to rescue the town from the odium cast o- i it by the toleration of thise meetings. It is solely from' such feeling that they have acted; and, in so doing, they haVe certainly set ari ad nirable example to the community at largd';; for, though irritated to a very high degree, they have conducted themselves on this unhappy occasion with the greatest temperance and moderation. i ' l U C E OK S T O C K S T i l t s D A Y .

It has been our chief eudeavour, this day, to lay before our readers the most ample details we could collcct, from authentic sources, of the proceedings which took place at Manchester on Monday last; and we have been anxious rather to sub nit such facts, as might enable the public, in the first instance, to form its own jud jWent, than to attempt doing it ourselves by any opinions of our owni It is, however, with mingled emotions of pain and pleasure, that we refer to our accounts. We lament as sincerely as any patriot will do, by and bye, the fatal necessity which existed for employing the military in the way they have been employed; but we rejoice, that the main cause of all the mischief is at last in the custody of the laws, and that he will now have to answer to those laws for the long career of daring violation of them which he has pursued. The lives that have been unfortunately sacrificed, the wounds that have been inflict, ed, and the dreadful consternation which has been inspired, will be a melancholy, but uot a useless price, if they purchase the future tranquillity of England ; if they intimidate the daring, and if they undeceive the deluded. We have long feared, that the workings of sedition had become too strong, and had assumed too systematic a character, to be dissipated without a collision ; aud we fervently hope, that the one which has occurred, will be the last, as it is the first. Our intelligence from Manchester is down to twelve o'clock on Monday night. At that time upwards of 520 persons, with the notorious H U N T at their head, were safely lodged in the New Bailey prison. Whether any attempt was made in the course of the night, to rescue these men, we have not heard. We hope not; for the military were abundantly powerful enough to frustrate it, aud if it took place, it cduld only end iu a further effusion of blood. The actual numbers of the killed and wounded could not be known with any accuracy, in the terror and alarm of the moment. Some reports state that fifty persons were carried to the Infirmary to have their wounds dressed, while many others were conveyed to their own homes. Other accdilhts mention the number in the infirmary as amounting to nearly a hundred; The individuals killed w ere not supposed to exceed ten or twelve; Of. these, one was Mr. ASIIWORTII, a special constable, and another, Mr. J O H N HULMK, one of the Yeomanry Cavaly ; both of themmost respectable inhabitantsof the town. The military conducted themselves with the most exemplary firmness and forbearance. Thev were assailed, not only with brickbats and paving- stones, but pistols were fired at them by the mob. What they did was purely in self- defence; We regret to add that Mr; M U R R A Y , one of the persons who were so infamously maltreated by the squad of Reformers at drill, as mentioned in our Paper of yesterday, died of his wounds in the course of Mondavi While writing the above* we received the following letter from Manchester, which we hasten to lay before our readers :— " MANCHESTER, AUG. 16, 7 O'CLOCK, P. M. " Since my last, H U N T has been stationary at J O H N - SON'S house at Smedley, about two miles distant, occasionally visiting some of the neighbouring townships, receiving delegates, and others, most days; On Wednesday evening last, he issued a hand- bill, addressed to the inhabitants of Manchester— a copy of which has already appeared in some of the London PaperSi ( See the Courier of Saturday last.) It was in his usual style of caution, requesting his friends to attend him at the meeting of Monday, the 16th, armed with no other weapon than an approving conscicncci " The peaceable and well- disposed, notwithstanding these canting words, have been greatly alarmed for the issue of the meeting, being well convinced that thousands have been practising the military marching and discipline for some months past, but within the last fortnight with additional effrontery, assembling at least once a day for sever .1 hours, under the superintendence of drillers, " Yesterday a large posse was exercising at a place called • White Moss.'

The whole area of the ground was now literally crammed frill : from well informed jiei'sons at least it is said! to be 100,000. " H U N T with a Lady, mounted the platform, wftli several other well- known Reformers, JOHNSON, KNIGHT, SAXTON, and the cdachman MOOIUIOUSE, Arc. & cv They were immediately enveloped with Caps of Liberty, and other revolutionary emblems. The meeting wis theu addressed by the several Orators, shewing much menacing attitude, and the shouts scetried to rend the very air and shake the very foundation of tlie ground; The Constables were tauntingly insulted wherever tliey were observed to stand j sticks and hats always waving on every acclamation. About half past one the Magistrates dcenied it expedient to read the Riot Act, and instantly after the platform was surrounded in a masterly manner, and the whole [> osse above, with all their emblems, taken into custody. Tlteparties, except MOORHOUSE, who escaped, are uow safely lodged in our New Bailey Prison. " The whole of this grand manoeuvre Would have takeri place without bloodshed, had not the mob assailed the Military and Civil Authorities with every resistance in their power, and particularly with missiles. Consequently, the cavalry charged in their own defence; not without first being witnesses to a pistol- shot from the multitude, against one of the Gentlemen iu our Yeomanry, who now lies in imminent danger; Also AsLIWORTH, U Special Constable, was killed on the spot. And I regret to state that several other Loyal Sjiecial Constables liawi been hurt iii the cdnflicti The soldiers forbore, with great humanity, from firing— but several of those infatuated persons have felt their sabres— as maiiv have been tukcri into tho Infirmary wounded.

Now we are enabled to assure Our readers tlwt this assertion is untrue. We understand thai an application was made to the Earl of LIVERPOOL and the CHANCELLOR ot' the E&- CHEtlUER, to know whether, in their judgment, anything had passed at the time of the negociation for the Loaa, which precluded the Bank from taking in the Omnium. The Earl df LIVERPOOL and the CHANCELLOR O< the EXCHEQUER replied to this application, that in their judgment nothing had occurred on that occasion winch need preclude the Bank from taking in the Omnium if they should think fit; but that this was a point entirely for the decision of the Bank, and that with respect to it they lied no desire of interfering.

In consequence of the detention of the expedition at Mttrgaretta, and the determination of Bolivar not to hazard a general action with a part of his troops, scarcely'any thing but skirmishes took place in the A pure and Arapca, until the season was too far advanced to admit of further operations there. Meanwhile despatches received from Brigadier- General Santander, in Cassinare, gave interesting views of events in that r. e- arter. The prospect was flattering, especially after news ar- • rived of M'Gregor's capture o f Porto Bello. ( They had not yet - beard of his supir. encss and destruction.) Determined not to be ton far anticipated by M'Gregor, or for other reasons, General Bolivar now formed the design of joining St. Ander with his infantry and the principal part of Paez's cavalry. He has left Generaf Torres to command tbe Apure, where a small division of inter try, some cavalry, and artillery, remain.

Let" lis hope for the best. If thp Patriots are as piousor grateful as. they ought to tie under ' such disjointed measures, they will give special thanks that fate has assigned them only Spaniards, degenerate Spaniards, for enemies! General Bolivar is expected to return to Venezuela by the- month of December, after having i t e r a t e d Santa Fe. He will bring* with him 10,000 infantry, if necessary,- and then enter Caraccas. There is certainly the strongest probability that he will hare complete success in New t.' t; t; iada, as some important advantages have been gained already, . and Santandc:- has an army of 2,500 ' men in Cassinare, and arms and ammunition to supply the Patriots who join his standard. Jt is' said there was trroch disaffection among the lioyalist forces iii that quarter, hthny o f tVhom slescrted to the Independents. inr. ny persons at Angostura admired this movement of Bolivar as ; t ( het' d'a n-. ne ( tl military policy and enterprise, from which the happiest fruits arc to bejgftfaered. We learn w ith deep regret the death of Dr Mantlet IVlacio, a tr nnber of the Congress of Venezuela. He died on the 8th bf LAW REPORT. . ' • a f t e r a fever of three days duration, but of ail aneurism of ten aorta. This distinguished, worthy man, was r. zealous friend of freedom, end one of the f ew who understood something of the principles of liberty. He ivas a native of Barillas, but liad graduated in the University of Santa F6, as Doctor of the Civil Law, & e.; he possessed much physical knowledge, wasa thorough chymist and a physician, and in his visits to North America, Paris, and London, had greatly increased his stock of information, lie is the author of the " Outline of the Revolution" published in London, antl republished in Now York. Since his return he had been chosen a Deputy in the Congress of Margarctta, and was nnnointed Secretary of State and o f the Treasury. When we recollect that half a dozen of firm intelligent Patriots might have saved; Venezuela in the mast critical times from all the evils of dictatorship, by strenuously maintaining the representative system, we feel inexpressiblecyncern at the loss of a Palacio, whilst the constituent Congress were engaged in, framing a constitution of civil government. Possibly his death is the principal cause of the absurd or wicked resolution of a majority of that Congress to, sanction the provision of a Senate for life. It was but a'short time previously that a decided majority was against it. Messrs. Zed, Meitdcz, B'ricens, f. nd Peualve- r, had vindicated an hereditary senate, as well as the duration of the senatorial oflice for life ;' Messrs. Alzuru and Alarcano opposed i t ; the former protesting against the admission of a senate fyr life. Was Roscio absent? or could he be silent onJhe occasion ? As the Congress of Venezuela scarcely represent 30,000 souls, though Its formation is justifiable from necessity. We trust it will not urge the adoption of a principle so fatal to freedom. P. S. Letters of late date received by this same conveyance inform us, that the front of St. Juan de Griess, m Margaretta, was blockaded by a Spanish squadron, and that the expedition ( former accounts notwithstandidg) had not sailed. If the blockading squadron be equal to Brion's, as is probable, the enterprise meditated on the part of the Independents may be frustrated. THE CUSTOM HOUSE. ( FROM A MORNING PAPER.) The Commission of Inquiry into the Department of the Customs, as. regarding. the Port of London, is drawing fast to a close. Some more voluminous Reports have boen transmitted for the consideration of the Lords of the Treasury,- and for their approbation, to be acted on forth-, with by the Commissioners of the Customs. The Bonrd have already done much in detail towards the correctness of conduct in their officers; returns are now to be u> ade, J by the heads of departments, of all persons employed' tmJer them, who have been absent more than three days i n each quarter ( without special permission), whether arising from sickness., or other causes; formerly ten days were allowed to pass without further notice than the writing of " unwell''' as the occasion of absence. An Annual Report Is also to be made of the age, capacities, and good behaviour, of the persons employed in each department; merit and services will not linger in the same obscurity as le idle and inattentive cannot escape from said that the Reports from the Oominis- C O U R T OF C H A N C E R Y , Auc. 17. GORDON V. GORDON. The LORD CHANCELLOR asked Mr. Rose whether he had any further observations to make in the case of Gordon v. Gordon, after what had passed yesterday? Mr, Rose said, that he had given the subject the fullest consideration in his power, and saw nothing more which lie could state. The LORD CHANCELLOR— Then let the Judgment stand which I gave vesterday. Mr. WILSON then requested that his Lordship would allow him to make a motion for confirming the Master s Report. Jt was necessary to havethis motion madebefore two o'clock, as the office of the Accountant- General would be shut then.' The LORD CHANCELLOR— I will not hear i t ; I waut to know what reason prevented the Master's Report from being procured sooner ? Mr. WILSON said he believed it was owingto the great number of papers in the case. The LORD CHANCELLOR— I know it is owing to ilo such thing I t is occasioned solely by the nou- attendance of the Solicitors. The Masters are obliged almost alw ays to complain, that they cannot get the business of the Court done, solely because Solicitors will not attend. Applications of this sort arc made generally at the termination of the Sittings before the long vacation, and I know they are made solely for the purpose of getting payment of the costs. I will not hear one of them, unless the strongest grounds are shewn for my doing so, and these grounds must be statod on affidavits.— Motion refused. In the case of the Bedford Charity, the LORD CHANCELLOR said he should give his judgment on Thursday. SURREY ASSIZES. Sarah O- smant was indicted for assaulting Tier infant child, witfc intent to murder it, by means of strangulation. There were three other counts, charging that site deserted the child, and intended to do it great bodily harm. The prosecution was conducted at the instance of the parish of Lambeth. Mary Anne Osborne said, the prisoner c a m c t o l o d g o at her house in Carlisle- place, and in a mouth after was " delivered of a male child. On the 24th of July, she said she was going to leave the infant at nurse, packed up her things, and went off in tbe afternoon. She returned about 10 o'clock, without the child. Witness frequently dressed the child ; the clothes and cap which she had put on it the day its mother took it away, were those found upon it when it wasdiscovered in a heap'of filth, and with a piece of tape round its neck. Cross- examined.— The prisoner seemed to possess a humane disposition, and was exceedingly fond of children. She had been deceived by a map, far her superior in life, who promised her marriage; but, having succeeded in her seduction, then abandoned her - she had discovered that he was married: when witness had seen the" child again, she ' interrogated file prisoner respecting it 1 she • tasked where it was. The prisoner replied, " Why, vvitb the woman to be sure." She rejoined, " What woman ? takejeare what you say." The prisoner became greatlyagitated. Witness jiaid. to her, " How could you hav » acted as you have done? I have seen your child." " Seen i t ! " said the prisoner, with anxiety, " Where?" Witness repeated that she had seen it, and it was well. - The. prisoner instantly fell upon her knees, and with agonized" joy exclaimed, " Thank God.! thank - G o d ! " /".- Mr. Carter and Mrs., Knell, residing in W inter's- place Lambeth- walk, deposed to.' tlie finding uf the child. They beard the cry of an infant, soon after ten at night, vitnd going to the rear of the house, in a field, tlis& pyered, close to the ditch, a child, sunk nearly up to its neck in a quantity Of filth. The filth did not appear to be heaped upon it. A piece of tape was found tied round its neck, but Mrs. Kiiell, who took it home and washed it, stated, that the knot was not . of a nature to produce strangulation. The unhappy prisoner made no defence, but remained during the whole of the trial ill a state of agony and tears, never once holding up her head. Several witnessesgave her a most excellent character for humanity. Mr. Baron GARSOW ( with feelings which evidently affbeted himself and tiie whole Court most deeply) left it to the Jury to determine, whether the unfortunate prisoner had not, in the abandonment of her infant, however wicked, rather placed it where she did,' with a view that it might be dinjovered than with the intention of completely destroying it? The Jury acquitted this prisoner uf the capital charge, butfeund her guilty of deserting the child. Mr. Raron GARHO'W recalled Mrs. Qsborne, and asked her whether, in case he passed upon the prisoner a mild sentence, she would undertake to assist her in some way of life? Mrs. Osborne replied, ( scarcely able to speak, and her tears flowing), " Most willingly! Nothing would, make me more happy!" Mr. Baron GARROW—( almost overvvelmed with feeling),— " Y o u are the best of women; more exemplary conduct was never displayed in that box; and though I can say no more, I should feel wanting in my duty if 1 did not say thus much." His Lordship, in the inost feeling manner, sentenced the prisoner to six weeks' imprisonment, and she was carried from the bar in a State of dreadful agitation. slate of his family, one child having died since his wife left her home, and two lying at present in a state of imminent danger. His residence was in Yorkshire, and he had no acquaintance with any housekeeper in London whom he could request to become bail. The Magistrate saidTie most sincerely commiserated his unfortunate situation, but he could not depart from the regular course of his duty; whenever he and his bail were ready, the unfortunate woman might be discharged, bi^ t till then she must remain iu her, former custody. UNION- HALL.— CONFESSIO N OF M U R D E R . — A b o u t seven o'clock oil Monday evening, a man went into the watchhouse near the toll- gate at the Surrey Theatre, and inquired for the night constable, to whom he said he had somefhing very important to communicate. Mr. Ascott, the w- atch- house keeper, was the only person there, and he informed him thnt the constable had not yet arrived, but was every moment expected; the stranger ( apparently somewhat disappointed) again pressed the importance of his communication, which Induced Ascott to question him. At first he seomed much affected, but laboured vainly to conceal his emotion, and after a few minutes pause, he suddenly exclaimed " T am a murderer— I have committed a great crime, and deserve to suffer ! " and then he sunk motionless into a chair.— Ascott endeavoured to compose him, and when he had revived a little, desired him to state explicitly the business that had brought him thither ; when the stranger said his name was Wood, that he was a native of Leicestershire, and had in his youth formed a very strong attachment towards a young woman of his own age, named , but for many reasons they broke off the courtship, and he was soon after married to another woman. He did not sec the first object of his love during the time of his marriage, nor till after tbe death of his wife, which happened near two years ago, and then he was induced to inquire after her, and found she was still living and single. His first flame returned with increased force; be visited her, a reconciliation was easily effected, and he intended to marry her when a decent time had elapsed. This intention he communicated to her friends, who had no objection to the match, and, with the consent of all parties, a day was fixed for the celebration of their nuptials, when a circumstance unexpected and dreadful, at once ended the negociations, rendering him an object of horror and reproach to himself, and of execration to society. A soldier, who was quartered in the town, had, it seemed, succeeded in gaining the affections of the young woman; he took her to public places,' walked with her, and seemed professedly her admirer. These attentions of the soldier roused his jealousy, and inspired him with an utter contempt of the woman, whom in the first ebullitions of his passion he determined to sacrifice! With this dreadful intention he repaired to the shop of a shoemaker, and borrowed a large working knife, which he sharpened to a very keen edge, and then placed himself in ambush, near the residence of his destined victim, whom he soon saw, and after upbraiding her with her ingratitude, plunged the knife into hor body, just under the left breast, and gave her several other wounds in the r. eck and arms till she was quite dead ; he then threw the body into the river, near the Stone- quarry. After the perpetration of the deed be fled to Hodminster, but could obtain no rest; his imagination perpetually brought the murder before his eyes, and even in sleep the bleeding figure of his victitn stood before him. Having wandered about a year through different parts of the country, during which he experienced the greatest tortures, he arrived in town for the very purpose of giving himself up to the Ministers of Justice. The unfortunate man was pot in elbse custody by Ascott, who took care that he should not have any means bv which he could make any attempt o n bis life, and yesterday iu<* uing he was brought to this office and examined before the presiding Magistrate, B. Allen, Esq. He appeared perfectly firm aud resigned, and his confession was taken down in writing. Mr. Allen asked him if the body of the young woman was ever found? to which he replied, that ho had heard it was, but was afraid to be inquisitive, as it might betray him. He was committed to the custody of the Keeper of the House of Correction, Horsemonger- lane, till a messenger can be sent to Leicester to make inquiries. The prisoner is about 30 years old ; the deceased was at the time of her death 28. heretofore-, and the cansuce. It is said that the Keports sibnersof Inquiry embrace some official changes in thtvLong Room, the several duties performed at the West and East India Docks,' and a new modcHingof tlie East India Department of the. Customs. In tlii Long Room, if the tonnage duty should be paid before a ship- is appointed, a saving of trouble and eJtperiso Will be effected, and a jsiinor, office at once abolished. In the receipts of different duties a consolidation as to one or two offices arc likely to take place, * md which will occasion a reduction of the officers n the Long Room, The improvements and advantages derivab-. ' from a Board of Inquiry have been sO manifest, that it is- domed advisable, to form a Commission of Inquiry for Jiie. Customs of Ireland; the Members named are, n'lr. .

M A R L B O R O U O H - S T R E E T Yesterday John Taylor, who keeps a coal- shed in Monmouth- street, and a journeyman tailor, holding a small house in Vinegar- place, Clerkenwell, of the name of Hill, were admitted as bail for' Wedderburn, who has been charged with seditious preaching, to appear at the next Middlesex' Sessions. ROW- STREET ROBBING THE M A I L . — Y e s t e r d ay John Goodman, alias Bond, was brought to the Oflice by Bishop, the officer, and underwent an examination before RICHARD BIRNIE, Esq. charged on suspicion of robbing the Edinburgh Mail, in the month of May last, of Bank notes to the amount of 1100/. It appeared that on the 15th of May last, a parcel was put into the Edinburgh Mail, at Edinburgh, directed to London, containing the halves of Bank of England Notes, cut in a straight line through the middle, to the amount of 1100/., principally in 1/. notes, there being but five of 2i. and five of HI. each. On its arrival at Newcastle it was examined to ascertain if the parcels were correct, when the above described parcel was missing. The Agents of the Edinburgh Bank were so incautious as not to Wait the acknovvledgment of the receipt of the first parcel, but sent a parcel with the other halves of the Bank- notes on the followingday, which was also missed, op the arrival of the mail- coach at Newcastle, Every possible exertion was made to discover the robber, but in vain. A great many of the notes had been in circulation for a number of years, in the North of England, so that thev had become so extremely ragged and unintelligible, from the length of Jivnethey had been in circulation, as to be scarcely negociabIe,_ an,[ I therefore recourse was had to taking them to the Bank of England to get them exchanged for new notes. Yesterday four of the stolen one pound notes of the above description were paid into the Bank& f England for new ones, in the name of Bond, and on the Clerk at the Batik issuing four new one pound notes in exchange for the four mutilated ones, and calling for the name of Bond, the prisoner answered to it. He was afterwards stopped, taken into custody, and brought to the office. Or. his person were found two 20,'. and one 10L Bank notes. One of the 201. notes proves to have been issued last Saturday in exchange for the old notes, part of those stolen, and it is expected that the other 20/. and 10/. notes will prove to be the same. Oil Mr. BIRNIF. calling upon the prisoner to give an account of himself, he said be was an independent man, which Bishop, the officer, admitted, that he believed him to be worth several thousand pounds, but known well as John Goodman.— lie was committed for further examination. H A T T O N - G A R D F . N . — I n our paper of Thursday last we gave an account of a young woman applying for, and obtaining, a lodging in George court, Aylesbury- street. Clerkenwcll, where soon after she was delivered of an infant. We also detailed her subsequent extraordinary conduct up to her being placed iu the work- house. Having - sufficiently recovered her health, she was ou Saturday last examined at this office. Several witnesses were examined, amongst whom were the landlady of the house where she lodged, her fellow lodger who followed and stopped her, and the man who took up the bag. These persons covroboratijd the principal facta of our former statement. The husband, a man of respectable aopearanc- e, who seemed inin.- b affected, also attended; from his statement it appeared that his wife, in consequence of a severe hurt she had formerly received in her head, was at times deranged, and he could no otherwise actvunt for her leaving a comfortable home, and acting in the extraordinary manner she had done, than by supposing she acted under the influence of the disorder to which she was subject.- The Magistrate, under all the circumstances, said he would admit the unfortunate Woman to bail, on her husband's entering into a recognizance for M. and finding, two housekeepers to j o in him in 25/. each, for her future appearance. The husband earnestly solicited him to take his security for the whole sum, urging, as a'reason, the deplorable TUESDAY, AUG. 17. C O T T O N The demand for Cotton in the early part of It ; week was brisk and extensive, the prices gradually improving; 011 Thursday, however, the request was checked by a declaration of the East India Company, 2200 bales for sale 1st October, and the general opinion entertained that the quantity would b(^ materially increased. The purchases of Cotton since our hist exceed 2600 packages; 1080 i'ernambuco fair quality, in bond, chiefly at 18jd. a few.- good 18JtL and 19d. ; 30 flue Sea Islands, duty paid, 2s. 8d. ISOfair Bowedsl4Jd. and H i d . ; 40fairCarricou 16d. and lti^ d.; a few Grenada 15Jd. and t6d.", Berbice 15jd.; nearly 1200 Bengals 65d, to 7£ d. very ordinary to good common quality, sold in bond. In consequence of the East India declaration the Bengals offer £ d. to a Jd. per lb. lower than thepriccs previously obtained. LIVERPOOL, AUG. 14.— The demand for Cottons has continued very lively throughout the whole of the week, and prices of most descriptions have advanced to £ d. per lb. C O F F E E The public sales of Coffee brought forward last week were very extensive, 9- 19 casks and 1484 bags; the whole went off with great briskness, and 011 Friday an advance of 2s. to 3s. per cvvt. took place generally, anil in some instances a greater improvement was realized; very extensive parcels of ordinary St. Domingo sold at 120s., good ordinary Jamaica 110s. to 113s.; a large parcel of fine ordinary Havannah sold low iu proportion, lealizing only 120s. ; since Friday the demand by private contract has rather subsided; the prices were, however, fully maintained. The accounts received- from Holland, the Hanse Towns, & c- yesterday, were very favourable ; the demand for Coffee had been brisk and extensive, and generally the prices were improving. The favourable accounts from the Continent have, however, little effect upon the market at present; very few purchases ' were reported by private contract: the public sales this forenoon consisted of 550 casks 124 bags of CoSfee ; the prices were fully maintained, yet there was apparently s » n e heaviness 111 the market, and a considerable proportion taken in ; the quantity sold, however, supported the advance o f last week, and in several instances prices Is. higher were obtained ; fine ordinary Jamaica in extensive parcels lids, and 116s. 61!.. ordinary middling USs. to 121s., good middling 134s. The Dutch Coffee found fv- w purchasers ; good middling taken in at. 188s. to 130s., good mitldling Dominica in extensive parcels 133s. 6d. and 134s. ; generally, the Coffee market may be stated steady, and the advance fully maintained, yet without the briskness of last week. S U G A R The demand for Muscovades towards the close of last week considerably revived ; there was more business doing on Thursday and Friday than for some weeks preceding ; the prices were little varied; a' few good Sugars realized prices a shade higher, but no general advance could be stated. A public sale of Barbadoes Sugar went off with some briskness at higher prices than couldbe obtained by private contract. The market this forenoon has been steady, the purchases considerable, but 110 variation in the prices can be stated ; a general opinion had been entertained that from the briskness towards the close of the market last week, there would be an extensive and animated demand this forenoon ; the anticipation has not been realized, but the market is steady, and f u l ly supports the former currency. Thepublic sale of Barbadoes Sugars, 150 hhds. 10 tierces, went off much about the previous prices, good white 87s. 6 d . ; 20 hhds good Antigua Sugar sold Is. higher than the prices by private contract. The demand for Refined goods was steady. during the early part of last w e e k ; on Fridav and Saturday the request became brisk and rather extensive, particularly for Lumps; the prices advanced 2s. to 3s., and goods rather difficult to be obtained; the demand is not confined to the home trade as formerly; the enquiries were directed to parcels for immediate shipment. There were few- sales of Foreign Sugars; 127 hhds Havannah Muscovados, by Public Sale,, went off heavily; good white, but no strength 39s., inferior 34s. to 36s. C O R N The ports will undoubtedly shut on Saturday next against the importation of all kinds of Foreign Grain and Flour. The weather since our last'has been vyry fine and warm ; the harvest generally in the southern Counties is far advanced ; the delay in clearing the fields o f t b o luxuriant crop is universally stated t o be the watot of labourers: in several places double wages are given, vet sufficient hands cannot be procured. The samples of new Wheat exhibited in Mark- lane yesterday were not handsome, but, being much wanted, they sold from 72s. to 76s., which was generally admitted to be above their relative vSue : the fine runs of the old Wheats obtained a small advance, but the middling samples and Foreign were without variation, and rather heavy.— There were few sales of . Barley.— The fine fresh Oats were " in good demand, and the Russian samples realized an advance of Is., owing to the calculation that a very considerable proportion of the expected supplies from the Baltic will arrive after the shutting of the ports.— Beans were Is., New Grey Peas 2s. higher.— Rapsseed declined 1/. per last. F R U I T . ' — T h e market continues exceedingly depressed, owing to the large Public Sales brought forward. O I L S . — T h e accounts respecting the Greenland Fisheries continue favourable. On Saturday, tiie first intelligence respecting the success of the Davies' Straits ships reached London; the first accounts appear rather favourable, the vessels averaging from four to five fish each; the prices of Whale Oil are in consequence still heavy and declining; no great depression is, however, now anticipated, as it is understood there are extensive lo: orders. TO) BACC. O — T h e demand for Virginia cargoes, 37s. to 40s., has rather subsided ; very considerable parcels of Virgiaia Tobacco have, however, been taken at 5d. to 5Jd. H E M P , F L A X , and T A L L O W There are more enquiries IRISH PROVISIONS.— The usual Government contract at this seatKin of the year has produced no alteration in the Prt>- vision market.— Butters are without variation— Bacon continues in request.

The following is an extract of a letter received from tlie Countv Tyrone, respecting the awful visitation at Lisanelly House, near Omagh, the seat of the late A R T H U R G A L B R A I T I I , Esq.:— " I must endeavour to give you some idea of the shock we received on Monday evening, by hearing of the awful death of poor Arthur Galbraith: but, indeed, language can hardly paint the horrors of the scene! From his infancy Mr. Galbraith had the most dreadful fear of thunder and lightning; aud when this fatal storm began to grow very violent, lie had the window shutters closed, got candles, and sat down lo his bible. The servant came in to lay the cloth for dinner, and he instantly dismissed him, charging him to take the knives and forks out of the room, and entreated every person in the house would go to their devotion, until ( as he emphatically said) this awful visitation passed.— He was sitting on a sofa, at a small table, his lady opposite to him; his two daughters and their governess at their work, when he got up, after reading foe some time, and unfortunately sat down in a corner, and leaned his head back against the wall— lie had not been there two minutes when he was struck dead instantaneously.. Mrs. Galbraith was thrown on the floor, where she lay quite insensible— one of the children's faces severely scorched, the other burned in the neck, as if three barsof red hot iron had been laid on the place— the window curtains burned to cinders, and scattered all over the room—' he marble chimney- pieces in three rooms shattered in a lb - nd pieces — the locks'twisted off'the doors, and 7C0 panes of gi. i-. s broken— a dog in the kitchen killed, and every being in tiie Uousc ( except the governess) either more or less injured. You may judge of the size of the house by the number of panes of glass 1 have mentioned to be broken ; and every room, except one, is left almost in ruins." B I R T H S .
