Where the tongue, That latic'd its light'ning ou the towering crest Of SCEPTRED INSOLENCE! and o'erthrew Giant Oppression leagued with all her earth- born crew!" ^ Sur a very short time, ago, we predicted that, BONAPARTE would not remain the captive of his enemies beyond a period of seven years; that he would escape by death, or by better fortune. But BONAPARTE, C. ESAR, and CYRUS possessed all the weakness of human structures common to our nature. The orb of NAPOLEON'S splendor has set upon the age; and though the twilight of his fame was obscured by the thick aud dense clouds of prejudice and persecution,— yet his very . name has shed a rich radiance in our skies which shall Ijover like a shining Glory over the semi- barbarous history of his enemies— a race of ignoble beings— deriving an abhorred and pestilent immortality • from their ever- execrable oppression of the greatest Hero in the records ef men. Tiiere have been many CAESARS: but there has been but O N E BONAPARTE. It is his exclusive and particular glory to STAND ALONE! None have ever risen with him from the prostrate fortunes of humble and obscure life, to the Imperial Dignity: or starting with him from the mid- way track of his daring and cometary splendor, when Vassal Kings stood as so many liveried Guards at his Coronation,— have achieved so much or conquered so many. When his fate trembled in the balance; and the Emperor of fifty millions of subjects ( ALEXANDER) held counsel with his Nobles on a proposed flight to remote regions on the outermost verge of human dwelling; when his standard waved over twelve Capitals; and he had Nations for outposts, and Sovereigns for centinels;— THEN he stood on the threshold of a DO- MINION never possessed by mortal man. There was something superhuman in the very audacity of his position. The ^ Eg'is o& sthis power was in his very grasp: MEN he had conquered; and the spoils of the world were rolled at his feet: Thrones lay in glittering ruins around him. It was NATURE only that opposed a barrier to his monstrous fortunes. When Moseow flamed like another Hecla amidst its shows,— the Genius of NAPOLEON shrieked over the double desolation of the works of Nature and the institutions of men. But a few days, and the armies which had strode in one unchecked career of victory over all the strongholds of Europe, were strewed, man and horse, by the vengeance of Nature, in livid corruption over a tract of fifteen hundred miles of hostile, territory, and still more hostile elements. From this moment every step of the Monarch of all minds developed increased difficulty and danger, which no skill could counteract— no valor conquer. It was evident that his reverses were destined to be as uncommon as his success. . The impetus of reaction had already obtained a frightful momentum. In the rally of discomfited nations, every better consideration of moderation, prudence, and generosity were lost in the interested passions of vengeful Princes and furious Priests: and the pretended call of man and God was raised in artful and blasphemous association, to lead all men from one delusion to another: from the- splendid thraldom in the retinue of one elevated tyrant, to the inglorious and soulless slavery of that little- minded club and conspiracy of privileged blockheads— those thorough- paced and thorough- bred outcasts of the " paragon of animals"— Man; yclept Legitimacy I the triple- headed, brainless monster, LEGITIMACY! But it is some glory to have lived cotemporary with BONAPARTE,, even though lie failed in his plan for the regeneration of. Royalty. As H A Z M T T says of Legitimacy, " we have seen the creature humbled!" The cruelty of the Legitimates, in their returned- day of power,— issued as it was from their thrice- forfeited,, thrice- restored Thrones,-— towards the great man, to whom they had rendered homage and, honor as the demir god of this netherworld; and from whom they had received pardon and bounty as men, and their very being as Princes,— as though from another Providence, or King of Kings;.-— their cruclty, we s a y w a s devilish.. Exiled from wife, and child, and home,— and friends except such as offered themselves up on the altar of fidelity,— to a barren rock, around which ocean rolled its widest and wildest desolation of waters;—" where hope never comes, that comes to all;"— we may not wonder that poor afflicted human nature burst its heart strings in such a hopeless hell of thought, although it scorned to complain on this rack of the mind. But he has escaped the fiends of the earth:— peace to his shade as the Catholic- would say,— it is a natural expression.- His spirit has left some tremendous traces of its visit on our world: and to the Historian we leave them. There is one wish left on the subject of BONAPARTE. to which we would give a few words. The manners, general conduct, conversation, amusements, & c. of Bo NAPARTE, as derived from an exalted nature, and affected by such strange circumstances,—." would seem to belong, as a property, to his cotemporaries and to posterity. The world lias this claim upon the friends of a man so elevated among his species— friends whose fidelity is so honorable to our nature. They have it in their power to give to mankind one of the most interesting manuals ever consigned to the Press: and we would too suggest that there is no country which would so well deserve to give the first publicity to such a work as that practieally- free, and great rising Empire— AMERICA the only civilized State whose hands are not stained in the of NAPOLEON. We trust that this wish will. be echoed throughout Europe; the hopes of the magnanimous, the liberal and the generous of all nations, consecrate it. What would the world not give now, for an authenticated history of the private life, manners, & c. of SHAKSPEARE, and other worthies who lived in an age when book- making was not a vice: and how many of SHAKSPEARE'S cotemporaries might have furnished such a desideratum! How strange then were it for such a inan as BONAPAB. TR to. leave that stage, the world, on which he played so leading apart, without any thing being given to the public in the semblance of authenticated private, history: and in a period when an eminent Barber cannot make his exit without leaving a ponderous Quarto or two of Memoirs; and an elongated Epistolary Correspondence! We trust, however, that we shall not long have to lament such a defection. How far those political interests of the world which convolved around NAPOLEON as their natural nucleus, are likely to be transferred to his Son, is very problematical. The younger BONAPARTE is in bad hands. It were a glorious seat for a great mind! His name, a tower of strength!— the world, a chaos ef conflicting elements, and huddled purposes! requiring but a master hand to unroll its unintelligible Hereulaneum, and open a brighter and a purer page of the fortunes of men. These are circumstances which might make an ordinary being GREAT. An er/ terprising mind need not require a better fortune than, in the person of the YOUNGER NAPOLEON, to celebrate the day on which he came of age, by . Drawing his Sword in the Champ de Mars! A tide of Knowledge is rising upon the times; the rush and the roar of Mind are thundering in the distance,— which will as certainly lead to great and important results, as that the accumulation of combustible qualities leads to the explosion of the elements in the physical world. The progress of political knowledge,— the endless publication of books,— the Lancasterian Schools,— are al! but so many silent conductors in. the gathering of the intellectual element. Nothing is wanted to the end of, another Revolution in France, but one in whom men repose a certain confidence. All the Elite of the nation are Liberals. Louis is but tjie Pantaloon of a sorrv Pantomime: and though LWerty may figure and flit before the eyes of tlie people, as the serial Columbine of love and hope,— there is no Harlequin with histuas// to exereise its talismanic influence in the transformations of despotism— to cashier the Ultras— the Tom Eobls and Clowns of the exhibition, and extricate the enamoured Goddess from the fangs of folly and dotage Such is France, literally and metaphorically; spell- bound in the pestilent embrace of superannuated Legitimacy. Her gross errors of caprice and infidelity, merited perhaps this genanee of. the soul. Purified. of, the. crime,. she may yet meet with a chastened ardor the youthful affections of a lawful Prince. We pursue the comparison no further. The Harlequin lives— the wand is in his scabbard: all the Performers are at their post, „ w- l; er » time shall give them the cue for action. STATE OF TURKEY. Intelligence was received last'week from various parts of Turkey. It is contained i: i letters of the 26th » £ June from Smyrna, the 27th from Salonica, and the 2iP of July from Constantinople; and having, been conveyedi by an express from the latter- city to Vienna, is the most recent information that has reached tiiis country. We may also add; knowing the - respectable quarter to which it is addressed, that the utmost reliance may be placed, on its authenticity. Up to the 2d of July, at Constantinople,- the communications between the Porte and " the Russian Ambassador remained suspended; Tlie latter had not received his instructions from Petersburg!!, and jt was'thought that it would be the middle ofitke month, before they could arrive. , The insurrection in Walachia is- now ascertained to ha wholly supp- essed. Advices had been: received announcing that Ypsiianti was wandering as a fugitive among the mountains on the frontier of Transylvania. It is said that in the. last engagement he was able to maintain with the Turks, several, Franks, officers of his staff, were made prisoners, among whom were three Russians. Nothing lias transpired, however, to shew that they had received the sanction of their own government. It maybe mentioned merely as one proof, among-. many others, of the warm interest inspired into the subjects of Russia by the struggle of the Greeks for independence. In naval affairs a great effort seems now to- be. makingby the Turkish Government. Another division of the fleet, the strength of which, however, is not- stated, has passed the Dardanelles with the expectation of immediately commencing hostile operations in the Archipelago. This armament sailed, it is said, immediately on the arrival of intelligence at Constantinople, that the arirted vessels of the Pacha of Egypt had anchored at Rhodes, and were ready to co- Operate with them in an attack on the naval force of tlie Greeks. An Algerine squadroir, destined for the same object, was also expected in the Archipelago, and on the junction of the. three fleets,- great reliance was placed at Constantinople for regaining the ascendancy at sea, on which the issue of the contest so materially depended. In, those narrow seas, which are swarming with Greek vessels, it is not likely that this can be effected without some previous encounter.; In the Morea, which has been considered the stronghold of the Greek insurrection, their affairs appear to languish for want of enterprise; They had not been able to effect the reduction of any of the fortresses-* notby their superiority in numbers and efficient naval force; to starve the Turks into a surrender. At. Patras th « Turks appear more than once to have ventured, out of the castle, but the, arrival of a reinforcement- to the Greeks, and the appearance of. a Greek squadron in the gulf, had again forced them to the - shelter of their fortifications. The town is. now wholly destroyed; . and the English Consul, after remaining; to the latest moment compatible with his safety, has been compelled to quit it. At Smyrna, the period from the 21st to the 26th of June had passed without any new outrages, and the city was tolerably tranquil. The embargo continued, and. a French sloop of war, which arrived off Smvrna, was refused permission to enter the bay by the Pacha. The Greek inhabitants of Smyrna, who, during, tiia- dreadful scenes from the 3d to the I9lh, took refuge on board the vessels, had been induced, b v assurances of protection from the Pacha, to return to their homes. They- wBre far, however from placing implicit confidence in his promises; but their immense numbers, and tiie inconveniences of their crowded situation, with the difficulty of procuring subsistence, placed them in a choice of evils. . Great distrust is said to exist at Smyrna between the Pacha and the Chiefs of the Janissaries,. who regard him with- little respect. The arrival of messengers from Constantinople, though their despatches were not made known, bad rendered it probable that a reinforcement of troops were on their march, who- would confirm, his authority. At Nymphe, a village about five leagues from Smyrna, tbe insurrectionary spirit had appeared,, but the rest of the vicinity was quiet. The most urgent necessity appear.-,- to' exist for a strong naval ' force. in the Archipelago, to protects the, European commerce in that quarter, as the Greeks, according to the statements of ' the foreign coasuls, are carrying on piracy to a most ruinous extent, with little discrimination iu the, objects of . their plunder, or respect for any flag. Salonica on the 27th of June was in a state of the greatest alarm, . and seems to be on the eve ofacafrtstrophe more fatal than that of, Smyrna. An insurrection of the Greek's had broken. Out in tiie week preceding, throughout fhe extensive country of Calamaria, of l. lia population of which they form a very great majority. A contest of the'most ferocious description had arisen therebetween them and the Turkish troops,, the hitt.- r. .242 THE NEWS. of whom were worsted and driven into Salonica. That city was crowded with them, and- under the irritation they felt against the Greeks, which they imparted to the Turkish inhabitants, the greater part of whom were armed, the most frightful excesses against the Christians were contemplated. This dreadful situation was aggravated by the appearance of a Greek fleet in the harbour, who were making demonstrations of an attack on the place. CAPITAL PUNISHMENTS. The following paper was signed by the Members of the London Jury at the Old Bailey, on Wednesday se'nnight:— " The London Jury cannot separate without making an anxious appeal to the Court in behalf of the prisoners who have been capitally convicted. By a conscientious discharge of the duties imposed on them, they have been compelled to commit the lives of individuals into the hands of their fellow men, for offences varying in character and degree; and it behoves them to state their feelings of deep regret that the absence of marked atrocity should not ensure an exemption from the dreadful sentence of death. Notwithstanding the high degree of confidence they would place in the merciful discrimination of those who are invested with" the final disposal of lives forfeited to the law, the painful apprehension caused by the uncertainty of remission deprives them of the satisfaction which should follow their own verdict. Reason and humanity dictate the hope that, the embarrassing difficulties attending the office of juror may be speedily removed; constrained as they now are by their oath to award a punishment so manifestly excessive as to demand the constant interposition of higher authority to prevent its being carried into effect. It is their humble desire, therefore, to communicate to his Majesty's Council, through the humane offices of the Court, that the London Jury respectfully disclaim theextreme penalty which their verdicts would seem to invoke on the criminals they have had in charge, and earnesdy solicit their deliverance from death.

PORTSMOUTH, JULY 31.— His Majesty arrived here this afternoon at half- past five in his travelling carriage, accompanied by Lord Graves and Mr. Watson, his . Majesty's Private Secretary, escorted by a party of the 10th Hussars: every preparation had previously been made to receive his Majesty in this garrison with all the parade possible; the streets were lined with troops, and the naval and military officers in their dress uniforms and regimentals waited his arrival. Onf bis reaching tbe outer barrier a salute was fired from the bastions, and Lieutenant- General Sir George Cooke, K. C. B., attended by all his staff, presented the keys of the garrison, which were graciously accepted and returned. His Majesty rode slowly down the streets, to the water- side, through the lines of soldiers, who presented arms; on his reaching the point of embarkation he alighted, and was received by Admiral Sir J. Hawkins Whitshed, K. C. B. and the Captains of the squadron; the Hon. Sir C. Paget handed his Majesty into the royal barge, and on the standard being hoisted the squadron fired a royal salute as well as the platform ; in a few minutes he reached the Royal George yacht, which had for his better convenience been brought into the harbour. On the yacht's hoisting the standard, a second salute was fired by the squadron, and the Captains commanding ships in the port were severally presented, and his Majesty then retired to dress for dinner. As the wind is westerly, and Mows rather fresh, the yacht will remain in harbour for the night, and will go to Spithead early in the morning. His Majesty looks uncommonly well, and performed the journey in seven hours from London: he appeared highly gratified with the cheers with which he was greeted. Tiie troops in attendance were, the Jtoval Sappers and Miners., the Royal Artillery, the. Royal Marine Artillery, the 10th and 15th regiments, the Royal Marines, and the Portdown Yeomanry Cavalry. Sir Edmtind Nagle, Sir Hilgrove Turner, and Sir Wm. Keppcl, form part of the Royal aquatic party, which will proceed on its voyage to- morrow, if the wind is at all favorable; if not, they will remain between this place anu Cowes. AUGUST 1.— Wednesday, 0 o'clock.— The Royal yacht lefts the harbour for Cowes at half past 8 o'clock, amid a royal salute from the platform battery and Fort Monckton. The iquadron are now firing, as his Majesty is just passing through them. The bells of the town are ringing, and the beach is crowded with spectators. WEST COWES, AUGUST 2.— His Majesty arrived here last night, about half- past six, and dined on board his yacht. A large party dined with his Majesty. This morning, at half- past two, the signal was made, and the royal squadron got under weigh for Ireland. He was accompanied by an immense number of yachts.— Tho whole were soon out of sight. I t is with delight we have to • announce, that his Ms- ) » ' - ' ) ' HAS he « t " I'aekfuMy pleased to signify bis intention of honoring our University with his presence at a dinner. The Examination- hall is to be fitted up with the utmost splendor; it will, on this occasion, present a coup A ceil such as has never been witnessed within the walls of old Trinity. It is to be remarked, that, since his Majesty came to the throne, he did not dine with any public body in the empire. At all events, Dublin will be the first of our Universities honored with bis presence. We hope that the poetic talent of Alma Mater will be put in requisition on this occasion. Tbe Muse of Ireland has now an opportunity to distinguish herself.— Dublin Evening Post. PUBLIC DINNER. A meeting was held at the Royal Exchange yesterday, the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor in tbe chair, to consider tbe best means of promoting a public dinner on a grand and extensive scale, from which all party matters are to be absolutely excluded. Mr. O'Connell, Mr. Le Poer Trench, and Mr. Bethel, delivered their sentiments; and it was resolved that another general meeting, at which all classes of the inhabitants of Dublin are invited to attend, shall be held on Monday next,, at three o'clock, at the Exchange, for the purpose of choosing stewards ( Protestants and Catholics), and making other necessary arrangements preparatory to a dinner, which, it was determined, shall take place at Morrison's, on Wednesday, the Ist of August, in honor of his Majesty's Coronation. Mr. O'Connell moved a vote of thanks to the Lord Mayor, for his conduct in the chair, which was carried by acclamation. The Lord Mayor took occasion in tbe course of the day to state, that no man regretted more sincerely, or disapproved more strongly, the transactions of the 12th of July. He had labored anxiously and zealously to prevent those most distressing occurrences. He bad pledged himself to use his best exertions to prevent them, and he would lav bis hand on his heart, arid conscientiously say, he had redeemed his pledge. ( Hear.) The idinner to be given by the'University of Dublin to the King, will be one of the most splendid entertainments ever given in this kingdom. Dr. Hodgkinson, Dr. Lloyd, and Dr. Wilson, are the Fellows who have the conduct of it. The King will be received on this occasion in the Library, from which a covered way will be erected to the Theatre, or Hall, where the dinner is to be laid. The number of persons which this classic room is capable of accommodating is stated to us at about one hundred and fifty. A number of rooms have been laid out at the Treasury, for such personages in the suite of the King, as these rooms can conveniently accommodate. They are now putting into order, and furnishing in the best style for the purpose. General Sir T. Hammond, and four or five of his Majesty's Equerries, will take up their residence here. Patriot Office, Five o'Clock. Government having been pleased to put the following official documents into our hands, for insertion, we have only time to obey their pleasure, and to exclaim, in the enthusiasm of our hearts, " God save the King." BY THE LORD LIEUTENANT AND COUNCIL OF IRELAND. TALBOT. His Excellency the Lord Lieutenant having laid before his Majesty's Privy Council the following Letter from the Right Hon.

This gentleman, who, it will be recollected, made his first aeronautic excursion from the Green- park on tbe day of his Majesty's coronation, gratified the public with a second ascent on Wednesday. The place chosen for the departure cf the balloon on this occasion was the Belvedere tea- gardens, Pentonville. These gardens were fitted up in good style for the accommodation of such as wished to see tlie inflation of the balloon, and who chose to pay five shillings for the gratification of their curiosity. The numbers in attendance within the gardens were considerable. The crowd in the adjacent grounds, streets, and avenues, from which a view could be commanded, was one of the greatest which we have witnessed for some time. One o'clock was generally understood as the hour at which the balloon would be let off; and long before that hour every avenue and eminence in the vicinity of the gardens were quite thronged with spectators of all classes and descriptions. The road in front of the gardens was literally choked up with barouches, glass, and hackney- coaches, waggons, and carts of all sorts, whose owners profited very considerably by the anxious desire of hundreds to witness the ascent, without danger of pressure from the crowd. Sums from 6d. to 2s. were paid for seats in and upon these vehicles, according to their proximity to, or distance from, the scene of action. The filling of the balloon began at an early hour, and it was ( as it appeared to us) sufficiently inflated a little after two. The gag. used on this occasion was the common carburetted hydrogen, ( that used in lighting the streets.) Before- the filling was complete, a small pilot balloon was let off; it took a direction east by north, and was soon out of sight. Soon after this, two carrier pigeons were thrown up, cach with a paper fastened to it. They went off in nearly the same direction as the pilot balloon ; but their particular destination, or the object of their mission, we did not learn. About half an hour before Mr. Green got into the car, a second pilot balloon was sent up. It took a direction a little more to the east than the former. At about half- past 3 the car having been fixed, and every thing ready, Mr. Green stepped into it, apparently in excellent spirits, and with the manifest confidence of a man who perfectly understood the management of the precarious vehicle to which it was appended. It was announced in the bills that Mr. Green was to be accompanied in his aerial voyage, by his friend Mr. Handy ; that gentleman, however, did not go up. The cause, as we were informed, was a kind of nervous affection, with which he was seized on Wednesday morning, and which induced him to decline the daring, attempt. As soon as Mr. Green had arranged himself in the car, the cords were cut away, and the balloon rose in a grand and majestic manner, amidst the shouts of the almost countless multitude. The ascent was not so rapid, nor accompanied w ith such a swinging motion of the car, as we noticed on the last occasion. Mr. Green stood in tbe car as it rose, and kept waving his flag for a very considerable time. The direction of the balloon was more easterly ( as it appeared to us) than either of the pilot balloons. The rapidity, of its motion increased considerably as it rose, until it came to a height in which its apparent size was diminished about two thirds. It then appeared quite stationary for some seconds. The intrepid aeronaut, however, soon accelerated its motion by throwing out two bags of sand. The descent of tbe sand was quite visible, and appeared in the rays of the sun like white smoke. The balloon- continued to ascend rapidly for a few seconds longer, when its motion became suddenly altered, and it seemed as if it had got into a current of air, driving from east to west. We were prevented from ascertaining correctly whether this was the fact, bv the entrance of the balloon into a dense cloud, which completely obscured it from our view, nor was it again seen by any who remained in the vicinity from which it ascended. We were told that THE NEWS. .. - it it was the intention of Mr. Green to descend, if circumstances permitted, at some place in Essex ; and that he expected to be able to return to town that night, in sufficient time to join a party of friends at supper. In the early part of the day an accident occurred by the giving way of some iron railings in the neighbourhood of the Belvedere- tavern, to which a great crowd of young persons bad held. Several were severely hurt, and one infant in its mother's arms so badly wounded in the head that it was not expected to live an hour. The balloon descended at Barking, within half an hour after its ascent. No accident happened either to Mr. Green or his aerial vehicle. STEPHENS v. JilWGDEN. TO THE EDIT01? 0F THE NEWS. SIR,— The reliance which is justly placed on the impartiality of the Public Press, sanctions me in the hope that, when, through its means, an injustice may have been done to an individual, the same source will be open to his justification. In the case, entitled as above, a report of which appeared in your Paper on Sunday last, a strong impression has been made to the prejudice of the defendant: it is hardly necessary to remind you, I believe, mainly through the ingenious and eloquent appeal of Counsel, and not from any positive fact which was adduced in evidence before the Jury. It may be said, that the defendant's legal adviser might have rendered nugatbry the powerful effect of that appeal, by calling a witness to disprove its aggravated features: this is true, and the means for so doing were fully in his possession. That he did not do so, must be ascribed to what he conceived to be a proper exercise of discretion : the result, however, has proved that he might have adopted a more eligible course; and with a view to impartial justice, I feel myself called upon, and I am the onlv witness who was present at the assault, to state correctly the facts as they occurred, and to add, that I was then, and am now, prepared to swear to their truth. I am persuaded the value you must attach to the reputation of a fellow- citizen smarting uuder an imputation of brutality which is altogether foreign to his nature, will induce you to insert the following statement of that which 1 could have proved, had I been called: First, Then, Sir, I could have sworn that the assault was not the cold- blooded, premeditated, planned thing which Mr. Phillips described in his opening speech, but that it took place within three- quarters of an hour from the time the defendant was informed of the slander, of which he had been the victim. Secondly, That when the defendant charged plaintiff with having called him an informer at a public meeting, he did not meet it with a direct denial, but began to go into an explanation of the circumstance. Thirdly, That the plaintiff received only three or four blows from the thin part of the whip, which is a common chaise whip, made of lance wood ( and far from a thick one), and which was previously broken and tied with string; and that the cut of the head was only produced bv the stick breaking in a sharp splintered way. " Fourthly, That the butt end of the whip was never used at ali; and this part I consider very important to be made known, to do away the idea of that brutality which existed only iu the brief of Mr. Phillips. Fifthly, That the affray altogether did not last half a minute, and that the blood on Mr. Stephens's face was not seen until after the assault was over, and the instant defendant saw it, he expressed his concern, and offered him water aud towel, with a private room, to wash himself, which the plaintiff accepted. Sixthly, That the plaintiff received no apparent injury, but the cut on his head, and that the coach was procured for him against his own inclination and wish, and it was with a good- deal of persuasion that he agreed to step into it; and also, merely because, as his neckcloth was bloody, he would have appeared particular in the street, and not because he was unable to walk home. Seventhly, that Mr. Stephens was in the defendant's house full an hour and a quarter after the assault took place, talking the business over, and waiting to see if Mr. Taylor and myself could persuade the parties to some arrangement; and when he left, he declared he would go to Mr. Joshua Mayhew, his attorney. Eighthly, That I never interfered with the horsewhipping ; that it was so instantaneous, 1 bad not time to do , so, and, of course, did not wrench away the whip from the defendant, exclaiming, " Good God, Sir, what are you at? do you intend murdering the man?" that no such circumstance ever took place. These facts, Sir, I could have established beyond the power of contradiction ; I Was there for the purpose. As the case had been much misrepresented, Mr. Brogden was more anxious to have all the facts of the case made public than any regard to pecuniary circumstances.. I also wish to state, that there were several persons in Court who knew Mr. Brogden for years, and could have spoken as to his general conduct for benevolence and kindness of heart; who could have spoken both as to his public and private conduct; who could have informed the Jury that the defendant, who had been described as a savage, was the very reverse; that in his own establishment in the counting- house, he has three persons iu his employment who have been in his service, one for eleven years, one sixteen, and the other twentvtwo years; his domestic servants one four, one seven, and " the other fifteen years. In his manufactory, a dozen eould be found that have been in his employment from ten to twenty years each. Why I was not called, it is not my province to explain ; but I am certain that a plain statement of facts, such as I have here mentioned, was better calculated to do the defendant justice than the eloquence of any individual, however imposing. I remain, Sir, your obedient humble servant, J. W. GARLAND. LAIF INTELLIGENCE. COURT OF KING S BENCH, JULY SI. London Adjourned Sittings after Trinity Term,, before the LORD CHIEF JUSTICE and Common Juries. r i P l ' E T V. HEARN. This was an action of assault and false imprisonment, the declaration stating that the defendant maliciously charged the plaintiff with felony, and caused him to be carried before Mr. Alderman Atkins, and detained for the space of four hours. The defendant pleaded— 1. The general issue, Not Guiltv; and 2. That the plaintiff had feloniously taken and carried away a box of lace, wherefore the defendant laid hold of him, and gave him in custody of a constable, to be discharged by due course of law. Replication de injuria, and issue, thereon. M r . SCARLETT, M r . ADOLPHUS, a n d M r . OSEORNR conducted the plaintiff's case; and Mr. GURNEY and Mr. P L A T T the defendant's The plaintiff's case was this:— The plaintiff was described to be a young man residing in Somersetshire, carrying on business in the lace- trade as a factor and commissioner. Being informed by a person named White, that the latter had a quantify of lace, worth 60 or 701., deposited in the hands of the defendant, who keeps the King's Arms Inn, Snowhill, on account of a person named Strange, a lace- manufacturer at Whaddon, in Bucks, it was agreed that tiie plaintiff might have it for 401. The plaintiff not having the immediate command of so much money, lie communicated the circumstance to a Mr. Bridges, a laceinan and hosier, in Woodstreet, Cheapside, and the latter agreed to advance the money to redeem the lace. Having obtained a written order from White upon the defendant to see the article, the plaintiff and Bridges went to the defendant's house and asked to see the lace. It was shewn to them, and Bridges being satisfied that it was worth 401., paid down the money, the defendant agreeing to deliver up the lace for that sum. The defendant took up the money, and said lie must have 7s. more. Upon this there was some altercation, and at length Bridges gave the remaining money. As soon as the defendant got the money, he put the lace aside, and throwing down a sealed letter, said, " that is all you are to have for your 401." ' Mr. Bridges insisted upop having the lace or the money back, but thedefendant refused both. Upon which the former snatched at the money, said he was not going to be robbed, and, after a considerable struggle, got it back. The defendant, in his turn, strug'gled to re- possess himself of it; but Mr. Bridges dashed his hand through a pane of glass, and gave it to a porter who was in waiting to carry the box of lace, and desired him to take it home. The defendant then detained both the plaintiff and Bridges, sent for a constable, and had them taken to the Compter, where they were detained for two hours, and iu about two hours afterwards, upon an investigation of the transaction before Mr. Alderman Atkins, they were discharged. To prove the case, Mr. Bridges, Mr. Thomas White, and Mr. Payne, the magistrates' I clerk, were called, Mr. Bridges did not know where the plaintiff lived, n » r did lie know any body who did. Mr. White described himself to be a general broker, living at No. 6, Market- street, St. GeorgeVmarket.— He had had transactions in flour, hams, Yorkshire cloth, and one or two in lace. At the time of this transaction, he had an office at No. 25, St. Swithin's- lane. About seven years since he returned from Hamburgh, and then had an office at No. 7, Lilliput- lane. He was now a prisoner in the King's Bench. prison, and had lodged within the rules for the last seven years, but had not been a prisoner ali that time. He had never gone by the name of Marmaduke or Bartholomew. To prove the defendant's justification, Richd. Strange, the lace- manufacturer, of Whaddon, Sarah Waldock, a servant of the defendant, and John Short, the defendant's waiter, were called. The first proved that White had purchased 701. worth of Jace, and had given him 301. in cash, and a. bill for the remainder, which had been dishonored. Being desirous of having some more lace, he agreed to let White have the box of lace in question for 401. 7s., and deposited it in the hands of the defendant, but with secret instructions to the. latter to take the money if it came to satisfy the dishonored bill of 401., and not to deliver up the lace. It was in obedience to these instructions that the defendant had acted in endeavouring to keep the money and detain the box. The other witness proved, that after Mr. Bridges had dashed his hand through the window with the .401. in if, the plaintiff seized the box of lace, and was endeavouring to make oif with it. He held the defendant's wife with one arm, and with the box in the hand of the other he held it over his head in a direction towards the passage leading from the bar. This was the only evidence to prove the animus furandi. The LORD C H I E F J U S T I C E said, there was no pretence for calling this a felony. It was no more than a struggle for the possession of the property. If a person having even a color of title to property takes it, that is not felony; but his Lordshship, in charging the Jury, told them, that they ought to award damages to the plaintiff with that temper and moderation which befitted a' calm review of all the circumstances of the case. The Jury found their verdict for the plaintiff— Damages 301. sions for Middlesex,- that lie accordingly attended at the. last sessions; but when the cause was'ealled on for trial, the prosecutor did not attend, and be ( Mr. Parkins) was acquitted. ' He had since applied to'the officers of tbe session court for a certificate of his acquittal, which was necessary, to prevent his recognizances from being estreated; but the officer refused to give it without the production of the constat, and he found he could only compel him by making an application to the Magistrate at the next session; and in the meantime he had reason to apprehend that his recognizances would be estreated, unless the Court should interfere for his protection. The C H I E F BAR ON asked Mr. Parkins if he had made an affidavit of the facts he had stated? Mr. Parkins replied in the negative. Ii; yon GAR no w.—" I thinks Mr. Parkins, your experience in this Court might have taught you' that we can only act by affidavit; but you can make one in a few minutes, and the Court will enlarge the time for producing the certificate of your acquittal." Mr. Parkins.—" Thank you, my Lord ; I will make the affidavit." . C H I E F B A R O N . — " I hope, Mr. Parkins, you will forgive me for offering you one word, of advice, which it may be worth your while to reflect on during the long vacation— that i;, never be your own lawve. r." Mr. Parkins.—" No, my Lord, but I'll be my own counsel." C H I E F BARON.—" Well, Mr. Parkins, you know what sort of a client you have got." Mr. Parkins soon after presented his affidavit, and the time for producing the certificate was enlarged. LONDON GAZETTE.— Saturday, duty 28. PARTNERSHIPS' DISSOLVED. R. Plielan and W. G.

LONDON exirrtTSsaMaMWtraaaisinnBW SUNDAY, AUGUST 5. ALARMING INDISPOSITION OF THE QUEEN. — — Her MAJESTY, we lament to inform our readers, is in a most dangerous state. In the early part of the last week she complained of illness, particularly on Monday nijrht. Throughout Wednesday and Thursday she underwent continued fomentations, but without any material alleviation of the inflammation. The physicians have not been able to procure any relief for the bowels; but on Friday she was blooded four times, and she lost on the whole 6' S ounces cf blood. Between five and six o'clock a warm- bath was ordered, i: i which her MAJESTY remained for about a quarter of an hour. This produced some cessation of suffering, but we regret to state that it had not the effect of reducing the general symptoms of her disorder. After coining from the bath, and up to half- past nine, her MAJESTY was unable to retain any thing on her stomach for more than a few minutes ; and on this account the medicines administered failed of producing the desired effect. In the course of the evening', Dr. A I N S L I E was sent for ; and her condition was felt so alarming that Mr. Fox, the Proctor of Doctors' Commons', was brought down to draw up lier will, which was executed by nine o'clock. Messrs. BROUGHAM,' D E M I AN, and Dr. LUSHINGTON remained at Brandenburgh- hottse until eleven o'clock. Her MAJESTY was also attended by Lady HOOD, Lady ANNE HAMILTON, and Mi:. Alderman WOOD and family. The following are copies of the Bulletins which were issued in the course of the week:— " Her MAJESTY has an obstruction of the bowels, attended with inflammation: the symptoms, though mitigated, are sot removed..

" Her MAJESTY has been in a sound sleep since six •'. dock this mcrniog, and stHlremains so. All the- symptopis aie as before," ( Signed as before.) - f ' eiiborgh- honte, Argu.-.! 4, 12 o'clock." The QUEEN was aware of her danger on Friday af ternoon; but ou this, as on every trying occasion, she behaved nobly. With the utmost patience she submitted to every proposed means of relief, at the same time calmly and firmly saying that she believed it was useless. She observed, and spoke in her usual firm manner, that she must, have had a strong constitution to have gone through so many'fatigues and anxieties; but she apprehended this would be the last trial. Her calmness and fortitude made a deep impression on all who were in attendance. When Dr. HOLLAND endeavoured to express a hope: " No, my dear Sir," her MAJESTY exclaimed, " 1 fear your kind hopes will be disappointed." Lord SIDMOUTII, we understand, has left town for Portsmouth: but official notice of the QUEEN'S illness and danger has been sent to tbe Home- office, and was officially acknowledged: but, with the spirit that has marked the conduct of her MAJESTY'S enemies from the beginning, no official MESSAGE was sent to inquire after her MAJESTY'S health. Alderinan WOOD has been unremitting in his attention. He remained up nearly the whole of Thursday night; and Friday night, when be retired for a short time to rest, he did not undress. It is scarcely necessary to add, that the whole of her MAJESTY'S household are deeply afflicted at the situation of their Royal Mistress. During the whole of Friday evening there was a crowd round Cambridge- House, watching with the utmost anxiety for the arrival of some fresh intelligence from Brandenburgh- house. At this latter place many persons of rank left their names in the course of the day. The interest excited in Hammersmith and its vicinity was intense beyond description, and every person who walked in the direction from Brandenbiirgh- house towards the Metropolis was eagerly questioned as to the state of her MAJESTY. The war of the Turks and Greeks is becoming an object of high interest. Who would have thought that the native spirit of old Greece was still inhabiting her own territory— the birth and dwelling- place of heroes and gods— the seat of all that is glorious in achievement, and tho source of all that is peculiarly dear to the imagination. Until the journey made by Lord BYRON and Mr. IIouriousE, Greece was considered as much annihilated as Babylon. Slie was, or nearly so, with respect to her arts, her prowess, her fanes, and even her sepulchre ® . Those discriminating travellers detected the spirit cf liberty still heavily respiring, after a thousand years of thraldom, as it were, among the ashes of her desolation. They weighed the circumstance in their minds— they considered the unsubdued spirit of the scattered Greeks,— their partial retrogression toward barbarism, which made them proud of their derivation, and inveterate in the endurance of what they had to suffer on that account,— while, on the other hand there was only the exhaustion of a coarse though powerful tyranny, now become too diversified to sustain the overreaching grasp with which it had formerly subdued tiie nations. They prophesied upon this that Greece was not dead, though she slept in the grave; and before Europe could be thoroughly convinced of the truth, behold the resurrection! Tile world has never seen a war of desperation ( for such it is on the part of the Greeks) better conducted. Lord BYRON values the. whole Greek population, scattered over the whole of the Turkish dominions, at no more than three millions. Their minds are callous from the unfeeling nature of their past oppressions; and their hab'its are fierce and warlike from the'predatory course of life which they follow in their youth. They are besides the nucleus and core of the Turkish marine. In short, thoy are iu the best condition, morally- speaking, for waging a rebellious war with their masters. Whatever advantage the Turks may regain over them by laud,— whatever cruelties they may practise upon the remnant of Greeks which remains among them,-— will be more than compensated by the terrific growth of the Greek power upon the seas. One might imagine that the shade of THEMISTO. CLES was still busy ia their politics, by the direct tendency of are desperate fellows, without home or character, having to win back their country, and establish their long- lost liberties— and possessing the fierceness necessary for sueli an exploit. Again, we bear from the authorities referred to above, that, they retain much of the fancy and fife of imagination which distinguished their progenitors from the rest of the world. We are aware that imagination is a. trifling affair in reckoning the resources of conflicting powers. But still it is something, or the Persians would never have been beaten at Marathon ; nor could T U E I I I S - TOCLES have triumphed atSalamis. Is it uothing that this scourged and courageous people tread ground, every inch of which is hallowed by the battles recorded in PLUTARC H ? An uncertain account arrived the other day of the investing of Athens, and the establishment of the Areopagus. Athens, to be sure, is now one of the most worthless places in Greece, and the whole narrative respecting this particular action ought to be looked upon, or rather it will be looked upon, by the chilly politicians of Europe as a dream presenting the recurrence of images, the sobstance of which can never return. But then, it is a dream of inspiration to the Greeks, and will go as far with them as " the substance of 10,000 men, armed all in proof, and led by" ancient Turkey. In the meantime, the Greeks will find an auxiliary of no slight importance in the derangement which is taking place among tbe financial and military systems of Europe, and chiefly in those of England. It was currently reported on ' Change yesterday that the Russian Manifesto bad arrived in town. The Duke of Sussex honored Mr. and Mrs. Brail am, by standing, in person, sponsor to their child, a son, in Tavistoek- square, on Thursday last. On Friday, soon after 3 o'clock, bis Royal Highness the Duke of Cambridge left town ou his return to Hanover. His Royal Highness proceeded in his chariot and four, attended by Colonel I'rott, over Vauxliallbridge. His Royal Highness was followed by his suite in a coach and four. On Friday the Duke of Wellington left town for the continent, in order to inspect the whole of the new fortifications, constructed and carrying on throughout the Netherlands. His Grace will visit Paris previous to his return.— Ministerial paper. In addition to the resignation of the Lord Chamberlain, report gives that, of the Lord Steward, and tbe reason assigned is the disappointment in the promise of Dukedoms. We have also heard it whispered that two favorite Marquisses, not Ministerial dependents, were objected to by tbe Cabinet, and therefore no new Dukes have been created. The Royal Academicians have liberally determined to form a collection of the finest works of the old masters, which are to be placed in the painting rrfom of the Royal Academy for the improvement of the students. Her Majesty must have been more than human, could she have remained insensible to tbe gross and slanderous abuse with which shelias been incessantly assailed in the Ministerial Press of this country. We cannot help believing, therefore, that her illness is in a great measure attributable to the mental uneasiness which that abuse must have occasioned. Ail who looked forward to preferment . of every kind, knew well that to slander her Majesty was one of the most infallible means to which they could resort for succeeding in their object; and industry in this disgraceful vocation, could not fail therefore to have at ail times a powerful stimulus. The independent part of the Press rendered essential service to her Majesty during the proceedings against her, but with the close of these proceedings its power of serving her - Majesty, in a great measure, also ceased. The activity of her enemies, however, lias never known any abatement, but has been regular as the calls of appetite.— That her Majesty should at length suffer from the incessant battery of these base and cowardly calumniators, is nut surely to be wondered at.—.!/.

The tragedy of Richard the Third was on Monday night represented " by special desire of her Majesty," as the bill's expressed. In " th'olden time." the actors of this Theatre were denominated " their Majesties'" serr^ usts, and royalty did not desire, but commanded their services : but the courtly lessees of the present day have thought proper to designate the performers " his Majesty's servants ;" over no class of whom, as events have proved, has her Majesty the slightest control, and therefore, we suppose, thev were compelled to introduce the naw- faeigled phrase of " by special desire." We recollect too, a period when it was customary to terminate the hills with the words Vivant Rex et Regina. This ejaculation is now wholly omitted ; the managers of " the first theatre in Europe" not deeming it proper, as it should seem, to pray for either the King or the Queen. " In this the antique and well- noted face " Of old form, is much disfigured,'' At seven o'clock her Majesty was ushered into one of the stage boxes, to the right of the audience, by Mr. Eiliston and Mr. Russell, who carried wax lights before her. She \ vas accompanied by Lord and Lady Hood. I I r . Austin was also of the party. Her Majesty was received with enthusiastic applause, by an audience which, even at that early hour, was extremely numerous. She . bowed very graciously in return, and appeared to be much affected and gratified by the spontaneous burst of feeling which greeted her from every quarter of the house. Tiie curtain rose in a few minutes, and a small ntfaibef of the vocal corps appeared on the stage, who proceeded to cliaunt " God save the King.". The au- > dienoe, however, the moment the performers came to the burden of the air, introduced, with . stunning effect, " the Queen." The play proceeded quietly; but at the I end of- the two . first acts, the loud and animated cheering ' which Her Majesty received inrjnaed her to come forward and repeat lies obeisances. We never saw an audience more unanimous in the expression of their feeling. lv. cn after the half- price visiters had come in, the approving shouts of " Queen" were encountered bvscarcely a dozen malcontents. At the end of the tragedy, " God save the King" was- again performed, with an accompaniment similar to that which we have already described ; after which the Queen bowed to the audience and withdrew. A fete simile, as far a3 the limits of the stage would allow it, of the coronation has been got up with great cost and care at this house. Due attention has been paid to the costume of thedifferent classes who march in procession, from the Yeouienof the Guard to the Royal Duke, and every ceremony incidental to the coronation has bee. ii faithfully preserved. So invetcratcly correct has the manager been, that the Marquis of Londonderry . is made to appear as conspicuous on the stage, as lie was ' when proceeding along the platform at the coronation. Tiie representative of his Lordship was received with , great applause; which, we apprehend, was extorted by the costliness of his robes, rather than by any veneration ' in which his lordship's character is hold by the public. HA YMARKET. The spirited Proprietors of this moft delightful ef all • theatres last nigh', produced a new Comedy, from the • pari cf one of tho most popular authors of the dar, called " Rise and Fal!," which was completely successful. The managers, have spared neither pains nor expense in scenery, dresses, and decorations; and the actor-. comprising the whole1 dramatic strength of tho theatre, performed their several characters with discri- . joinat'on and feeling. The lateness of the hour at which / the certain . fell precludes us from entering into any h'. ugti ene. l analysis: nest week, however, we shall return' " o the subject. BONAPARTE S SUITE. The Camel store- ship arrived on Wednesday morning at Portsmouth from St. Helena, which she left on the 27th of May. She has brought to England the suite of the late Napoleon, composed of Count and Countess Bertrand, and four children, Count Montliolon, Professor Antonimarchi, surgeon; Signor Vignoli, priest; Marchand, valet; Novarez, and wife ; St. Denys,. and wife; Archambault, groom; Pierron, 1st Maitre d'Hotel; Courcea, 2d ditto; Eticnne Bronge, servant to Count Bertrand ; Chandelier, a cook; and two Chinese cooks. Colonel Nichol, who set off to town with despatches, and part of the 66th regiment, also came in the Camel. The remainder of the regiment is on its return to England in the Abundance storeship, which was to sail from St. Helena a fortnight after the Camel. The different Officers of the Port, who were on board the Northumberland, Captain Boss, R. Glover, & c. & c. have been on board paying their respects. The whole suite are in deep mourning. Thursday morning they landed from the Admiral's twelve- oared barge, which Sir James Whitshed sent off for them ; and on their landing, a carriage was in waiting to convey them to the GeCrge Hotel. Immediately on Bonaparte's suite landing- at the George Hotel, every possible respect was paid them. Sir J . FI. Whitshed and his Lady, Lady Gordon, Lady Bryce, as also Sir George Cooke, Major Harris, Mr. and Mrs. Glover, & c. & c. paid their respects to Count and Countess Bertrand, Count Montholon, & c. The Countess's are very engaging children, but seemed very tineas}' at the immense multitude of people who were assembled to witness their arrival. Countess Bertrand has brought home some slips of the willow under which Bonaparte was buried— they have taken root in some large pots of the earth that covered his remains. ( P R I V A T E LETTER.)— The Countess Bertrand is much delighted at being once more in England. She is exceedingly anxious to come on shore, and means to sojourn some time in England if she be permitted. I take it for granted that there can be no objection made to her wishes, as the circumstances which so long gave a peculiarity to her situation no longer exist. She has many most respectable connexions in England and Ireland. She is descended from tiie Irish Dillon family, and indeed is scarcely to he considered as an alien. She is a most charming woman.—- She is a little fatigued from the long voyage she lias just made. Her health seems also to hava suffered by so long an absence from her native climate. Yet she is very animated, seeming to derive new life from the circumstance of her return home. Much of her spirit she evidently receives from the youthful and beautiful family that surround her. The daughter, Hortense, has a striking resemblance to her mother. She is an interesting girl, about ten years of age, and very attentive to her brothers. Th? two elder boys, Napoleon and Henry, are remarkably fh'J children, the first about t'. v. ive, .. nd the stcohd eight, or nine years of age. They appear to possess all the quickness and talent of their celebrated father. But the favorite portrait in this lovely family is the youngest boy, Arthur. He has such a face as Guido would give to a princely child. His eyes are dark and large, and his dark brown hair flows in abundance upon his shoulders. He was born at St. Helena. lie speaks English with an accent entirely insular, and there is about him much of that independent little bluster which is seeh in young English children. He understands French, but he will not speak i t ; he does not like it. The children are all glowing with health.—- Msrsh. il Bertrand 1 have reserved for the last. Ha was the presiding intelligence, the mild, dignified, yet melancholy repose of this family picture. He heard that it had been stated in some of the newspapers tiiat he was to be recalled by the King of France. ( I believe lee is, or at least was, iu the list of'proscribed.) He received the intelligence of his reeal with perfect calmness, but at the same time was much interested in ascertaining its authenticity. Like the Countess, he seems to draw his existence from the bosom of his family. PAT. IS, AUG. 1.— It is stated in a letter from Vienna, dated tiie 20th ult. that the Duke of Reichstadt ( young Bonaparte) had that morning appeared, for the first time, in deep mourning, at the Imperial Palace of Schoenhrunn. When he learnt the news by the Empress, who took great care to cpen it to him by degrees, the young Prince, who is very lively and very amiable, was much afflicted, and shed tears. It is said that there will he celebrated a funeral service for Bonaparte, at Schoenbrunn, at which his son will be present. He passes the whole of tiie day with their Majesties, who are exceedingly attached to him. Three natives of the interior of the Brazils, about 800 miles up the country ( a man and woman, and their child), have recently arrived in London: they are canibals, but exceedingly timid. Thev wear ear and mouth ornaments. An article from Nap'es, dated the 14th ultimo, in A French Journal, says—" Last Friday Vesuvius was covered during the whole day, not with volcanic lava, but with snow, which fell in great abundance aud covered the whole summit of the mountain. This is a phenomenon rarely witnessed here, even in winter." WARD or CHEAP.— Thursday a wardmote of the inhabitants of this ward was held at the church of St. Lawrence Jewry, Cateaton- street, for the purpose of electing a proper person to serve the o.' jce of Alderman, iu the room of Richard liothwail, Esq: deceased. The wardmote was most numerously and respectably attended. The i, ord Mayor opened the business of the day, when William Thompson, Esq., citizen aud ironmonger, was cjetted Alderman of the ward without o; positipa. HERTFORD ASSIZES, August 2. C I V I L S I D E . - ^ S E D U C T I O N. DUNHAM V. 1SATCHELOR. This was an action against the . defendant, for seducing the daughter of the plaintiff, whereby he lost) her services. Sir. B R oil RICK ( with whom was Mr. Abraham) stated the plaintiff's ease with considerable ability. Sir. Marryatt was for the defendant. It appeared from the evidence of the daughter of the plaintiff, a young woman of prepossessing appearance, but whose demeanour under examination was perfectly degagee, that her father was a bricklayer in respectable circumstances, residing at Wheathampstead, in this county. She was about 23 years of age. About three years since, the defendant, a young man of the same age, a- journeymau baker in the same village, paid honorable addresses to her, but to whom she had surrendered her chastity, and in the month of April last she was delivered of a child. . Her father had paid the surgeon's hill, and had since maintained the child. She had three brothers and two sisters; the youngest of the latter was IS years ' of age. Oi: her cross- examination she admitted that her eldest sister had had three children by a man to whom she was not married, and all of them were born under her father's roof. She also admitted that the defendant boarded in his master's house, and received 10s. per week wages. Previous to the birth of the child, the defendant offered to pay 31. for the expenses of the lyingin, and 2s. ( it!, a- week for the maintenance of the chi'd. The plaintiff agreed to these terms, but required tj, e defendant to procure the security of his father. To this the latter consented, and appointed a day to meet the plaintiff, but the defendant never came pursuant to his appointment. Mr. MARRYATT, in his address to the Jury, urged the, topics which presented themselves from the circumstances stated by the young woman, who was the only witness to prove the case. The Jury found a verdict for tiie plaintiff— Damages ten pounds. A letter from Smyrna states that the Turkish Captain who fired upon the Europeau Commodore, has been beheaded by order of the Porte. The gunners have h:: u their, right hands cut off. By the oath administered to the King at tbe Coronation, he became bound to defend the Church of England and Ireland, ' but the Kirk of Scotland is entirety forgotten— whether by mistake in administering, or by the reporters and printers, we do not pretend to say"; but certain it is, that in the south of Scotland this omission has caused deep speculations.—( Tyne Mercury.) " A S L A P AT SLOP."— Under this quaint but appropriate title, Mr. Hone has produced one of tiie most amusing little works of the present day. It appears in the form of a newspaper ; three pages of which are devoted lo various parodies of the matter usually contain*! in the " Sbp- pail." The fourth page is taken up with the history of the life of the Doctor. The cuts, wh'jcls are in Cruikshaok's best style, are full of the most ludicrous images: among these stand prominently " The Damnable Associationor, The Infernal Inquisition of Blackfriars : an interior view of the den in iieidge- Street, with the gang at work. This cut, of hi ;!!', is well worth t!. c sum charged for the whole work, which is only . ot; e . " idling. The residence of Cowper,, the poet, at Olnev, in Buckinghamshire, has long been uninhabited, and is now in a state of considerable dilapidation. Some of the neigh hours, however, on the day of the coronation, procured boughs and flowers from Cow pet's favorite walk, at VReyton- under- Wowl, and decorated theJ> ut? ide of the house with oak, laurel, and wreaths of flowers, to his memory. The general trade of the west of Scotland is going favorably on. The Cotton mills are brisker just now than they have been for a considerable time. The manufactures carried on in the country towns are doing well; the Wool . manufacturers. in Stewarton and Kilmarnock are in good spirits, and the work people are at present more comfortable in their circumstances than thev have been siuce 1812.—( Glasgow Chronicle.) . Melancholy Accident from the Overturning of a Stage Coach.— A Coroner's Inquest was held at the sign of the Boar, in Chipping- Nortoh, Oxfordshire, on the 11 th ult. on the body of Mr. John Cooper, late of Southampton- row, BlOoinsbury, a pianoforte- maker, who met with his death in consequence of the overturning of the Old Fly Worcester coach. The Jury, after taking a view of the body, adjourned to the 19th, when they met again to hear the evidence; from which it r. npeared, that about twelve o'clock on the night of July 13, as the Old Fly Worcester coach was entering Chipping- Nortgn, having nine outside and one inside passenger*-, the deceased, Mr. Cooper, being seated on the box with the coachman, the coachman, although warned by the guard, who called to him to keep from the bank, negligently drove it upon the raised footway, within a few inches of the wall, and the coach was immediately overturned, and five of the passengers so much injured that they arc not yet able to pursue their journey ; and the deceased, who has left a disconsolate widow and seven small children to lament his loss, died of the injury he received, the next day at one o'clock. It also appeared, that previous to the accident, the coachman run the coach against the toll- gate post, and broke one of the traces, which he treated as a matter of no consequence, and drove on without mending it, till the fatal accident took place-— The Jury, after hearing and examining the different witnesses, returned the following verdict:— " That the deceased came to his death by the overturning of the coach, occasioned in purt by the careless and negligent conduct of thecoachn an;" an. 1 laid udecdand ol i 1- 6u the c< aclu 246 THE N EW S. ORDNANCE. We think it worth while to call the attention of the public to the following statement sent to us from Sheerness, which we give implicit confidence to, as an instance of what is to be expected in the way of retrenchment. All the officers, even those of'bnt a few years' service, are to be put on half- pay, whilst the greater part of the men, after a whole life spent in the service, are turned off without- consideration: and it has been particularly observed, that every man who gave evidence in the late inquiry on the- conduct of the storekeeper and other officers respecting the peculation of public coals, wood, & c., have been selected and punished in that way, - perhaps, for telling the truth:— '.' SHEERNESS, AUGUST 1, 1821.— The Ordnance Department at Sheerness is broken up ; the officers and clerks ( all freemen of Queenborough,) are put on halfpay, and the foreman and workmen, some of whom have been between 20 and 30 years in that Service, discharged without a shilling, or an hour's notice, to obtain employ. " It is not three years since Mr. William Akid, the storekeeper at this, station, was superannuated at 500!. per annum, and a general promotion in consequence took place in this office, as als- o the appointment, for the - first time, ( in any office under Government), of one of tlie clerks, Mr. James Batehelor, now put on half- pay. Query.— Could not this establishment have been broken up at that time as well as at present? The amount of the superannuation to the store- keeper alluded to above, and the half- pay to the others, is from 12001. to 1,3001. per annum. MONTHLY AGRICULTURAL REPORT. There is little of novelty to. present to the public, at this time, as an Agricultural Report. The different craps upon the ground have " improved since our last, from a favorable change in the weather, whilst yet there has been a considerable want of solar heat, [. ate high winds, also, may have bad some degree of ill effect on the wheats under the flowering process. Nevertheless, all the crops appear in a prosperous and thriving state, and very probable at harvest, to afford a considerable augmentation of the national stock of corn, pulse, and roots collectively. The stock of roots was great, and the late raiAs will draw up a large aftermath. I'he hops are much mended, and will probably be a far greater crop than was expected. The growth of seeds this year has not been so successful. Tares will be a good crop. Fruit is in far greater abundance than the early season promised, apples being the chief exception. The fate rains have drawn up the turnip plants to a size and substance to defy the fly.— Live stock, both fat and lean, ha3 declined in price still farther since our last, with a chance to encounter the usual autumnal fall. Wool has experienced a trilling amendment in price. The crops generally, in Ireland and upon the Continent, are reported to be of good promise.— Middlesex July 25, 1621. ILCHESTER GAOL. TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS. '•' IIChester, July 29, 1821. " SIR,— On Friday the adjourned Quarter Sessions was held in this town, agreeably to advertisement, for the purpose of receiving and deciding upon the Report of thff Committee of Magistrates who attended the investigation of the charges which - 1 preferred against Bridle, the Gaoler of this place, previous to the arrival of ths Commissioners appointed by the Crown, ' i'he Sheriff and Magistrates assembled in unprecedented large numbers, and, after mature deliberation, thev came to this conclusion—" That tlie Gaoler had, by his conduct, rendered himself unworthy to hold that situation ; and he is discharged accordingly."— He is to continue the nominal Gaoler till he has made up his accounts at the Michaelmas Sessions; a new Gaoler is fo lie immediately advertised for; and i n tlie meantime the management of the gaol will be conducted under the superintendence of the Magistrates, by the Taskmaster and the principal Turnkey. Tlie decision of the Magistrates was officially communicated to me by the High Sheriff, and it was- delivered to the Gaoler in writing by the Clerk of the Peace. Mr. Dickinson, who so strenuously defended the Gaoler, and vouched for his humanity in the Honorable House, when Alderman Wootl presented the petition of poor Hilliar, was in the Chair on Friday, and was, however reluctantly, obliged to admit that he had been one of Mr. Gaoler's greatest dupes. I am, Sir, your obedient servant, II. HUNT." < 5ne of the Preach papers calls the poet, Thomas Moore, Sir Thomas Moore. We tire ready to allow that Sir. Moore, both on the score ol' talents' arid, high character, has a better claim to such a tiile than many a name in the catalogue of knights; but we believe there is a staunch inflexibility about his principles which has no very natural tendency to such an honor, unless Apollo were to institute an order of knighthood, and then he woukl. be a Grand Cross. We understand that the reduction in the Army is now settled, and will amount to about thirteen thousand jnen ( notwithstanding Ministers opposed every motion for reduction last Session), and we believe it has now received the King's approbation. We have not yet heard what that- of the Navy is to be, but we presume consider ible, as well as reductions in tho Ordnance : some of the latter h ive already been proceeded on. The English Ambassador at Constantinople has instructed all the British Consuls in the Levant not to permit any Turkish subjects to embark in English ships, unless protided with permission from the Authorities of ti. ejr nation, NAPOLEON BONAPARTE. The following is an extract of a letter, from a tradesman of respectability at St. Helena, employed upon the funeral of Bonaparte. It is dated " St. Helena, May 20, 1821. " You will of course have heard of Bonaparte's dissolution, but perhaps a few facts from an eye- witness respecting that important event may not be deemed tedious. Bonaparte had been sick at intervals ever since I have been on the island, but never considered dangerously so by the faculty, until about two months back, when he evidently began to decline, and of course every possible attention was paid to him, but without effect. " The same morning I received orders for the coffins for the illustrious deceased, which were of course executed wrth all possible despatch. The shell was made of one- inch mahogany, lined with tin, and covered with lead outside. The tin was afterwards covered with white satin; pillow and mattress of the same. The outside coffin was made of Spanish mahogany. Wednesday morning I rode up to Longwood, and inclosed the body in the coffins, with silver- head screws. Inclosed with him in the coffin were a silver urn containing his heart, and another containing his stomach, and all the coins that were issued during'his reign; together with a knife and fork, a spoon, and one [ late, ail of silver. " The pall at the funeral was of purple velvet, on which was placed the cloak, or mantle, and sword, which Bonaparte w- ore at the battle of Waterloo, and on the head of the coffin a cushion and crucifix. The coffin was placed on a hearse drawn by four of his own carriage horses, and the procession ( which the writer describes in nearly the same manner as stated in former accounts) moved towards the place of interment, which was his own choice. '•' Soon after he went to Longwood to reside, hecomplained of the badness of the water. At that time Madame Bertrand lived at Hult's- gate, about one mile from Longwood, at the topcf a very pretty fertile valley, known here by the name of Sempler Vale. Bonaparte frequently visited Madame Bertrand, and observed how very superior the water which he drank there was to that which he got at Lougwood. On being informed that it was procured from a spring down the vale, he expressed a wish to walk and see the well. lie went there with Madame Bertrand, and after examining the water, he noticed a willow tree growing about 10 yards from the well. Viewing it is silence for a few seconds, he said,' Should I die on this island, I should wish to be buried under that tree; audi will drink no water but from this spring.' When he returned home, be furnished one of his servants, a Chinese, with two silver bottles, holding about a gallon each, and sent him immediately to the spring for water. The same Chinese has had no other employment than fetching water in these bottles twice a day for the last five years. The find where the corpse of this extraordinary man is deposited, belongs to Mr. Torbet, a very respectable shopkeeper in Ja^ nesT own. It is now called ' Napoleon's Vale,' and is very much frequented by tiie inhabitants. The grave was lined with, stone, and covered with a plain slab of the same material." BONAPARTE. [ From The Journal du Commerce It is not always death that terminates the lives of great men : for a long time previous to the 5th of May, 1821, the destiny of Napoleon was closed in the plains of Waterloo; posterity, however, has not yet arrived for him, and we doubt whether up to this moment the hour of justice has struck. Too much hatred, too much friendship, too much admiration still surround his shade, to authorize the hope that the language of inexorable but impassable truth can yet be heard. These passions will cool with his ashes, but his ashes arc still warm. We must therefore wait the time for that impartial judgment which futurity will accept and ratify. It is, perhaps, possible to succeed in some points in sketching what posterity ivill pronounce upon Napoleon. Who can fear to deceive himself, for instance, in affirming that he will be placed, without contradiction, in the ranks of the greatest warriors, the recollection of whom the annals of all times has preserved, whether we consider the wonderful results of his warlike exploits, or look to the fertile variety of invention bv which they were effected. Undoubtedly we must rerognize a man of " superior genius in the brave soldier who threw himself, covered . alone by his standards, in front of the thunders of Lodi; in the young European, who, without cavalry, dispersed, at tbe foot of the Pyramids, the most formidable cavalry iii the universe; in that ardent Captain, who overthrew, in a few hours, Brunswick, the old Prussian bands, and the Monarchy of Frederick ; in tbe consummate General, who, with a handful of heroes, defended, foot by foot, the territory of the country which was only torn from him by shreds.— j Doubtless, iu this great military career, commenced at 25, faults may he pointed out; but how many laurels are there to conceal a few cypresses; how many triumphs are there to compensate for a few reverses ? Less great tKan tbe warrior, the legislator will still be great; if the Penal Code, scourging with a rigor sometimes barbarous, does not sufficiently protect innocence or misfortune; if the code of criminal proceedings unceasingly reveals the precautions of a jealous tyranny, how much the admirable body of our civil laws, to I which, in adopting them, enlightened nations h: re rcn- l dered a just homage, will still leave, in spite of some blemishes, a high idea of the man, who in the interval of his victories caused to be discussed in his psesence, and himself discussed, the most important arrangements. The administration which Napoleon created in the bosom Of a country which he found in the greatest disorder, may be admired by the partisans of absolute power, which in fact was deliberately combined in the system of Government that he sought to establish, and under this view it is a new proof of the varied resources of his genius: it is that also for which we cannot award him any praise. But in condemning the principle on which that administration was founded, it would be uniust to pass over its benefits— what public monuments, markets, streets, quays, canals, and ports, attest the prodigious activity of a mind, which did not waste itself in sumptuous festivities, but which always embraced with ardor useful undertakings. Tlie sciences and the arts flourished under Napoleon ; he was desirous of patronising them, because he loved them, and also because lie knew that his personal glory would be augmented by the glory of the age. Interna! commerce and manufacturing industry, which, since the Revolution, have taken so vast a stride, owe their development generally to causes anterior to the Government of Napoleon ; it must be confessed, however, that he did much for then- prosperity. The continental blockade, considered in all the generality of its principle, and in all the rigor of its consequences, w'as, perhaps, an error, otherwise that gigantic measure, which Napoleon alone could have conceived, has not been without useful results; and those who give an opinion upon it will doubtless not forget the maritime blockade which had preceded it— the active rivality of the industry of a neighbouring power— the obstinacy of its jealousy— and the implacable enmity which it had avowed towards Napoleon. Grave political charges are made against Napoleon.— History will judge them with its rigorous equity. At present, we are better acquainted with the melancholy results than the causes of his errors. There are doubtless those who will find some excuse for them, and at least a little intoxication may be pardoned in him upon whom fortune had chosen to heap the most enervating favors. One of the greatest faults of Napoleon, and that which was alone sufficient to his destruction, was his not estimating men at their proper value; in having imagined that he could induce the greater part of them to prostrate themselves before au idol, instead of inspiring them with a just pride in themselves, and with t; ie noble enthusiasm of liberty; in having forgotten that a free people always know how to defend their rights, but that tin enslaved people have nothing to defend. That singular destiny which accompanied . Napoleon in his youth, followed him iuto the prison where fortune bad thrown him. There every thing still bore testimony to the profound impression which had been left by the remembrance of his renown. Relegated to a burning rock, a squadron was employed to guard him, and tlie Powers of Europe deputed Representatives to this great Power, who were to witness his captivity and his death. His death— the deliverer has come at last— and the tomb of St. Helena will remain in the midst of the ocean to give an eternal lesson to the masters of the earth, that he, who had received from nature all the gifts of genius, who had displayed the standard of the victor from the Tagus to the Boristhenes, who gave laws to twenty nations, and reigned over twenty Kings, yet fell when he was not defended by the love of nations, and by the institutions of their choice. Europe conspired against Napoleon— and despotism has overthrown both. Europe would have fled before Napoleon and liberty. %.* So eager and universal was the demand in Paris for the Journal in which the above article appeared-, dial many copies of it sold at 30 francs each.

Three individuals, who had severally been apprehended upon warrants on the complaint of their respective wives, for various breaches of the matrimonial contract, were on Wednesday brought up before Mr. Alderman SCHOLGY for examination. The first placed at the bar was a jolly- looking, rubyfaced fellow, a fireman at one of the insurance offices: the appearance of his wife, a middle- aged woman, the very picture of neatness and cleanliness, quickly shewed the nature of the complaint against him. It vvas evident the poor woman had a drunken fellow of a husband, whom neither her economy, attentions, or scoldings could keep either clean, quiet, or sober. She fold a sad tale of his disorderly conduct, enumerated the many times he had come home with his head full of liquor and his pockets empty, and even descended to the minuteness of narrating the difficulty she had had to get him up stairs occasionally, and the consequences of his inebriety to her clean floors and carpet. In short, she complained that he neglected his work, seemed to think that his only business in life was to drink, and acted as if it was her duty to keep him, instead of his keeping her ; he had not brought her home a single shilling for some time, and she was therefore determined not to submit to it any longer, and bad brought him up there that he might be compelled to allow her a maintenance. Amidst all this torrent of complaint, it was however pretty evident that her object was rather to reform her husband than to be parted from him ; and the Alderman having ascertained that the maintenance she- sOught was not a separate one, reproved the husband very severely for his conduct, and recommended him to take his wife by the hand, and promise not to get drunk and behave ill to her again. The fireman, who, having been all night in the Compter, was perfectly sober, seemed to have feeling enough to he ashamed of this public exposure of his family quarrels, and expressed much indignation at his wife as the cause, and replied rather surlily—" She has exposed us enough already." " No, Sir, t can't do that here." The Alderman, however, was peremptory, and tendered, as the only alternative in case of refusal, a committal to the sessions. The fireman still hesitating to give this sign of amity, Hawkins, . the marshahnan, who had him in custody, and stood near them, said, " Come, let me give you awav," and taking the woman's hand, put it into that of her husband; Jhis movement constrained him to shake hands with her. " Do you do that from your heart?" said the wife. " To be sure I do," replie'd the fireman, in a growling, half- Consenting tone of voice. Upon this reconciliation, such as it was, the warrant was discharged, and the parties withdrew amidst the laughter of the surrounding spectators. The second prisoner was a personage of a very different description. The straitness of his features, tbe pale, cadaverous hue of his countenance, together with the solemnity of his tone and manner, seemed to mark him out as the personification of gravity itself. He and his wife had been separated some time, upon an agreement on his part to allow her four shillings per week; latterly, however, he had refused to pay her more than two shillings per week, and for this refusal was brought up to this office by the churchwardens of Christ- church parish on a former day. On that occasion much recrimination took place between him ani his wife, a little sharp- faced woman, who seemed at least a match for him : in the course of her harangue she accused him of having an illegitimate child, which he allowed; and with living at that time with another woman, which he denied, or rather— which seemed to him to amount to the same thing— defied her to prove; and in return accused her of pawning his clothes and robbing his lodgings. Summoning, however, all his gravity, he addressed the Magistrate, and after expatiating at'some length upon the respectability of Ms brother, a Baptist minister, the excellency of his own character, and the uprightness of bis conscience, said it was best in all cases to be candid, and speak openly one's mind. He had therefore to assure tiie magistrate that it would be useless for him to make any other order; two shillings a- week he had allowed the woman, and he would allow her no more ; and if his Worship ordered him to pay 2s. and a penny, he would go to all the prisons in the world before he would pay it. The Magistrate ordered him, however, to allow jiia wife 4s. a- wcek, and on his refusal he was committed. His confinement altered his determination, and when brought up before Mr. Alderman Scholey he was willing to allow 3s., which tlie churchwardens consenting to, he was discharged. The third case was that of a j- oung couple, . the husband a journeyman painter, capable of earning from 21. to 31. a week." His wife, through his ill treatment, had been forced to leave him, and had procured a situation iu a family, taking with her the youngest child, which her parents assisted her to support. Two children, a bov and a girl, were left in the care of the father, who had so entirely neglected them, that the attention of the persons in the house where lie lodged was drawn towards their situation; and, npon their representation with thein the salutation of " good night." About twenty yards farther on he met a third man, to whom he also spoke. He had not got more than a hundred paces, when he felt himself suddenly seized from behind, and a handkerchief was drawn over his face, and held so as to blindfold him. He was then knocked down, his pockets turned inside out, and lie was cut and stabbed in his face, arms, and several parts of his body, with a sharp instrument. There were, as he supposed, three men ; one of them exclaimed " cut his throat." The unfortunate man fainted from the loss of blood, and when he recovered, the ruffians had left him. He was unable to rise; but his groans in a short time brought three of the horse patrol, who happened to ride near the spot, to his assistance. They immediately rode off in different directions, and overtook three men, whom they brought back. These, by their own acknowledgment, proved to be the men who had been spoken to " by Boseley, and they were searched, but nothing- was found that tended to criminate them. The patrol, however, detained them, and they on Thursday underwent an examination before Mr. Birnie, at Bow- street ; but Boseley was unable to swear that either of them was concerned in the attack upon him. The patrols stated, that they saw no other men on the road, and from the manner in which thev were stationed on the Common, it was impossible for any man to have got away after committing the offence, without their seeing them. The prisoners gave very consistent accounts of themselves, and declared their innocence. After a long examination, two of the three men were remanded till Monday next, to give time for further inquiry. Their names are Tucker and Carpenter. Boseley had a cut of more than four inches in length on each arm, and his face was covered with gashes. H A T T O T F - G A R D E N . Twenty- six pickpockets, apprehended bv the constables of Pentonville, at the Belvedere, on Wednesday afternoon, the time of the ascent of the balloon, were brought up for examination; on some of them two or three watches were- found, on others from two to six and more pocket- handkerchiefs. Some of the gentlemen who had their pockets picked attended, and identified some of the prisoners: ten, against whom there was no positive proof, were discharged, and 16 were remanded for further examination. MARLBOROUGH- STREET. Thursday Mr. Goukton, a Jew merchant, of Highstreet, Shadwel), and Mr. Wm. Newman, master printer, of Westcott- street, Bishopsgate, were brought to this office in the custody of Foy and Clements, charged, at the instance of the Prussian Government, with being concerned in a forgery to a great amount. The Prussian Consul, together with several persons connected with the Police of that country, attended, and the office was excessively crowded. Mr. MAIN- WARING, the Magistrate, was occupied nearly the whole of the office hours in hearing the case; Several persons nearly connected with the Bank of England also attended to hear the evidence, which was of the following nature:— It appeared that, for a considerable time past, the Police at Berlin had discovered that numbers of spurious notes were iu circulation in Prussia, and at length a Foreigner, who was in league with two other persons, one of whom was a Prussian bank6r, was apprehended and carried to prison for uttering several thousands of the forged notes. Tiie parties were examined by the proper Authorities at Berlin, aud, after being confined in prison six weeks, one of the parties, the foreigner, expressed a desire to confess the whole of the plot, on condition that he might be saved. This was consented to, and he informed the Government that the most extensive arrangements were made in London for the pur pose of forgeries: he divulged the whole system, and the manner in which he procured the forged notes from the prisoner Goulston. Arrangements were accordingly made, and several of the Police accompanied the Foreigner to London, for the purpose of apprehending the parties. The evidence of the Foreigner went to prove, that he and a person named Ludd, who is at present confined in prison at Berlin, were for a length of time connected together as traffickers in these forged notes, before thev were apprehended. A short time ago they received 5000 from the prisoner Goulston, with which they went over, and they were circulated through the instrumentality of an eminent Prussian banker. Witness paid the prisoner 101. a- thousand for them. The witness on his arrival in London went to Goulston, as an agent from Ludd, to procure 12,000 of the notes. Prisoner said lie had not got them; and he could not furnish the witness with them, in consequence of owing the maker 101. Witness gave him 51., and it was arranged that he should cull for them on the Monday evening following. He went on that evening by appointment, and received 12,000, and afterwards 21,000, which he delivered to Mr. Foy, of the Bank. Mr. Foy, an Inspector to the Bank of England, deposed that on receiving information of the forgery, and it being suspected that notes of the Bank of England two plates; one man was printing one side whilst the other was finishing. Here the plates were produced, and excited much curiosity. Witness found various papers for the purpose of making the no* es, a great quantity were made ready for issuing, and others were cut ready for printing,—.' all of which he seized. On a minute search being made, nothing was found to sanction a belief that Bank of England notes were executes:! there. August William Ecort, Inspector of tbe Prussian Police, who was assisted bv Mr. Lewis,. as- Interpreter, stated that the notes produced, which amounted to several thousands,- were drawn on the Prussian Bank. They were all forgeries. Mr. Goulston, in his defence, said he did not think there was any crime in serving them, especially as they Were- made in England, out of the jurisdiction of the Prussian Government. On Mr. MAIN WARING asking Mr. Newman what LIE had to say, he replied, that he was not - aware of having committed an offence; he printed, them in the course of his business, without inquiring what they were intended for; he did not understand tbe Prussian iangu* ge on the note. He was a respectable man, and was employed by various Public Offices, and not being in want of " business, it was unlikely that he should accept of. the printing ofthe notes, if be knew it would be a crime.— The Magistrate thought it l- atber extraordinary that he bad not made inquiry. He answered, that he thought they were admissions to some place. The Magistrate said that was unlikely, from the great quantity that were printed, and he felt bound to commit him. Mr. Newman requested bail to be taken ; he could bring forward the most respectable persons. ' I'he Magistrate said he had but one course to pursue. He regretted it much if Mr. Newman was led into i t ; be would order every accommodation for him, but he shoul/ i remand him, when tbe Solicitor of tbe Bank would attend. It is said that the King twice during the Queen's process in the House of Lords, solicited the accession of ~ the Whigs to office, anil offered to turn out his present Ministers, both at the beginning and in the middle of those proceedings, provided their opponents would exert themselves to bring the affair to a favorable conclusion. Wednesday last commenced at Manchester the seventyeighth annual conference of the Wesleyan Methodists. The Rev. G. Marsden was chosen president; and the Rev. R. Newton secretary. Above 300 preachers are said to be present. There has been an increase of mem-. - bers during- the past year; exclusive of Ireland, to the amount of 10,329: 9,029 in Great Britain, and the rethe churchwardens of St. Sepulchre's had caused him to I might be issued from the same quarter, every effort, was be brought up in order to compel him to maintain j n'""-, n tn' tn bottom: for this them. The fellow seemed wholly devoid of the com- . mon feelings of humanity, and making neither offer nor j promise to the satisfaction of the Magistrate, was com- I mitted to the House of Correction as a rogue and vagabond. B O W - S T R E E T . ROBBERY, AND ATTEMPT TO M U R D E R . — W e d n e s - day uljjht, about eleven- o'clock, as John Boseley, an elderly man, who travels with hardware, was coining from Ciiertsey to London; by way of Wimbledon Common, he met two men near the roads that branch off from the t'o: hmon to Wimbledon and Putney, aud exchanged Trauslaput in force to tvace the affair to the bottom: for this j tions are very numerous, particularly of dramas, novels maining 1,300 on their missionary stations.— Rockingham paper.

A Farmer in Merionethshire died at 105 years of age ; by his first wife he had 20 children ; 10 by his second ; 4 by his third; and seven by two concubines. His youngest son was 81 years younger than his eldest, and 800 persons descended from his body attended his funeral.— Westmorland Gazette. The following tragic- comic paragraph appears in a Paris paper of Sunday ;—" On Thursday some boatmen took a man out of the Seine, who had thrown himself in from the Pont- au- Change. On conveying. biiri to the Corps de Garde, they succeeded in recovering him. He was no sooner restored, than be assured the Commissary of Police very seriously, that as soon as be was free he should take tbe first opportunity of drowning himself. The Commissary proposed to him to sign a declaration of his intention to destroy himself, and to which the man readily agreed. At this juncture a female arrived, loudly screaming My husband, I will see my husband. When, however, she found him alive, she was immediately silent. The boatmen approached her, to ask for some reward for having saved her husband, when she angrily repulsed them, saying, Why did you not let him drown himself? ichat business had you lo meddle with him These words had the effect of curing the husband of his folly, and lie swore that he would nut ' again attempt to drown himself." RUSSIA.— According to the latest estimation, there are 350 living authors in this country, about one- eighth part of whom are ecclesiastics, but the far greater proportion consists of persons of rank. Backfneister, in itis Russian Library, computed that, previous to 1817, there existed about 4,000 different works in that language. In the fcxtensiye collection of national literat ure belonging to the Academy of Sciences of St. Petersburg}], there were, ill 1800, 3000 works printed in tbe Russian tongue; among which only 105 belonged to the class of novels and romances. Since this period authorship has increased so much, that last year no fewer than 8,000 volumes were printed in this language. purpose, lie, in company with Clements, the officer belonging to this office, watched the prisoner Goulston, after last witness called on him, to Mr. Newman's, the printer: on their arrival at his house in Westcott- street, Bishopsgate, they entered and saw Mr. Newman and his son ; they asked whether he was not printing something for a man named Goulston? Mr. Newman said he was, and desired to see the plates of one of the note,-, which witness produced. He was conducted up stairs to the printing room, where be found two men at- work at the printing presses, making the notes with a'l possible speed. E. ich side of the note is different, and there- were works of imagination, and the Belles Lettres. There are newspapers and journals; both Geilnan and Russian, published at St. Pe'cersburgh, Moscow, Riga, Re> el, Abo, and other principal cities. At the first of these places there are fifteen printing- houses, aud ten at Moscow.

WASHINGTON'S MONUMENT.— The United States' sloop Peacock sailed from Civita Vecchia April 13, whither she was sent by Commodore Bainbridge, to receive from Rome the monument to Washington, for the State of North Carolina. It was brought in the Peacock to Algesiras, where Commodore Bainbridge received it on board the Co/ ambus, it being so large that it could not " be got down the hatches of the Peacock, but was • lashed on deck: in this situation it was not deemed safe to trust it across the Atlantic: it is put up on two packages, each weighing nearly four tons. The people of this country are heavily taxed for the support of a large standing army, intended to coerce them into submission to ministerial misrule. This naturally increases the discontent it is meant to subdue, and men view even our veteran soldiery with suspicion and displeasure; while the deepest indignation is felt against the yeomanry for their base subserviency to arbitrary power. Apprehensive of tbe effects of this general feeling, the Newcastle mounted and dismounted yeomanry dared not to approach their fellow- citizens in their uniforms o'n Thursday se'nnight. On the following evening, the angry temper of the public mind was displayed on the race- course. A strong party of dragoons, under the- command of an officer, came to search for some of their men ,- but their entrance into the tents v. as most determinedly opposed by a large crowd as an offensive intrusion. The soldiers were drawn up into line, when having drawn and flourished their swords, they began to retreat towards the barracks, followed by the hootings and hissings o f t h e crowd, wdio also pelted them with turf, and whatever else they could procure. When at some distance from the tents, the people dispersed, and- the soldiers, who behaved with great propriety, retired to their quarters.— Durham Chronicle. At the S'alford Sessions, on the 23d of July, Samuel Waller, a lay preacher among the Methodists, was indicted for obstructing the King's highway at Ashtonliiider- Lyne, on the 17th of June, by assembling together two or three hundred persons in the street, to hear liiin preach.— The Counsel, iu stating the case to the Jury, said, the defendant ( who was what was callcd a Ranter), and persops of his class, had been in the habit f n - some time past of visiting Ashton, and there holding forth in the public streets, to the great annoyance ( Tithe inhabitants of the town. On the day mentioned in the indictment, a constable of the town, finding Waller roaring and malting a great noise within twenty yards of the. church door, approached him, cautioned him of the illegality of his proceedings, and ordered him to desist. I l i i s he refused, saying Christ and his disciples did so, and he had a right " to do i t ; that he was a licensed • preacher, and considered it his duty to continue the service.— Mr. Courtney, Counsel for defendant, said, the common law ( upon • which the indictment was founded) was the unwritten law of sense. It combined the ppuuir - est reason with the, purest justice. He had the authority of Chief Justice Hale, one of the first lawyers and best judges that ever adorned the bench, for saying, that Christianity was part and parcel of the common law. He called upon the Jury, therefore, to pause, and investigate how that which our Saviour did, and instructed liis apostles to do, could De a nuisance. The Rev. Mr. ' Kav, the Chairman, observed, that a law had recently passed, according to which, by the simple registration of a place, persons might be admitted to preach there, ' provided it were done with decency and propriety. But h e ' p u t it to the Jury to say, whether two or three hundred persons standing in the public street, was or Was- not " a nuisance. The J u r y , having deliberated about fifty minutes, returned a'verdict of Guilty of obstructing the King's highway, in the parish of Ashton- under- Lyhe.— Tile defendant was then sentenced to three months' imprisonment, and. to find sureties to keep the pctcc.
