Stonehaven ; when, afier admitting a num- ber of new Members, quarterly payments were collected j to a very considerable amount, and other necessary busi- ness transacted, the following Office- bearers were then | elected, viz. JOHN ELDER, MASTER; William Kenneth, depute- master ; Robert Duncan, pass- mastar; John Burlry and David Colvin, wardens; | James Craig, treasurer ; William Knight, George Wood, and James Gregory, key- bearers ; George Welsh, William Robertson, Alex. Collison, and Charles Wood, counsellors; Charles M Hardy, and William Gordon, stewards; John Thomson, secretary; John Campbell, re- elected clerk ; and James Melvin, officer. After the business of the day was over, they walked in procession to Dunnottar House, at the particular request of Lady KENNEDY, accompanied by Deputations from the different Societies in this place, with their colours, music, &. C. The whole of the Members were fancifully decorated with beautiful flowers. They then proceeded to the Church of Fetteresso, where an excellent Sermon was delivered on the occasion, by the Rev. GEORGE THOMSON, Minister of that parish. After Divine Ser- vice, they walked through the principal streets of the j town, and then dined together at Mrs. DONALDSON'S. In the evening a Ball took place, in the County Hall and Mason Lodge, which was kept up with great mirth and harmony till the dock struck five next morning. This Society is wholly composed of Youths, in num- ber 380, and the oldest not above 20 years of age. To the EDITOR of the ABERDEEN CHRONICLE. SIR, EVERY trite friend of independence contemplates with anxiety the existing hostilities between the Turks and Greeks, and callous must he be, who can behold un- moved the spirited efforts of that oppressed people to throw off the despotic yoke of the Mussulmans. There is no na- tion to which more interest is attached, both in a moral and physical point of view, than to the Greeks. No country lias', in the course of ages, experienced a greater reverse from a state of the most exalted freedom, to one of the | most abject slavery. To ancient Greece we must look for j the first aspirations of liberty in the world, and they are the descendants of these Patriots who are now asserting their right to be free. Wide, however, is the difference I between the ancient and the modern Greek. We shall find but few points of similarity between them. He breaths the same air— he inhabits the country of his sires — bnt he is a slave, " nay the bondsman of a slave"— and has long endured this with the apathy of despair. Treachery, proverbial treachery, now forms the most prominent fea- ture in bis character. The Greeks are unquestionably a fallen race, but their moral depravity can only be ac- counted for by the causes which they are at present battl- g to remove. It were absurd to suppose, that with a rcsuscitatitfn to a state of independence, their moral reform will not be effected. To speak of their enjoying liberty, | according to their ancestors* acceptation of that word, would be in the highest degree chimerical ; but they may i surely aspire to become a free state instead of depressed j slaves. It appears evident to me. that, without assistance from foreign powers, it is altogether- improbable that the issue of the present contest will be the emancipation of tlve Greeks. Many circumstances combine to confirm this opinion. They can place but little dependence on the re- volted Moslems, and the whole of their own number, scat- tered up and down the Turkish Empire, does not perhaps mud) exceed four millions— a mere handful compared to the Mahometans. Besides, their spirit is greatly de- pressed ; and on recurring to the history of their former revolts, we find their most. transcendent efforts were more meteor- like than permanent. Let it be remembered, what persevering obstinacy is attached to the Turkish character. The Musselman may be defeated on the first onset, but he returns to the charge with unabated courage and re- doubled fury. The Greek commences with the ardour of enthusiasm, but is damped by the first misfortune : he is, from his temper, better suited for desultory warfare, than for regular soldiership. We hear numerous discussions relative to the line of political conduct, which Europe ought to pursue in this crisis ; if Russia gives her assistance to the Greeks, Britain and France are terrified, and would, if possible, prevent Russia from engaging in an enterprize which, if success- ful, would, in their opinion, add so much weight to'what they consider Russia's already exorbitant power. It is a dry task for a laudator temporis acti to debate about the balance of Europe, while the descendants of the heroes of Marathon are struggling for independence. It does not appear that Russia would gain any fearful ascendancy by the success of her arms against the Porte. Her nominal dominion might be extended by it, but her real power would not, in my opinion, be much increased. By ex- tending her strength to the East, it becomes divided, and | hence there is little chance of any danger accruing to the j West of Europe ; and from the immense distance and the habits of intervening nations, still less to the British pos- sessions in India. It will undoubtedly cry shame in the annals of any state, which shall endeavour to thwart this noble enterprise. The former treachery of Russia will render the Greeks cautious : the defeat they then receiv- ed in the Morea. after having been deserted by that power, cannot be yet effaced from their memory. They will be jealous of both friends and foes, and— let them but once taste the sweets of liberty— they will dread a tyrant whe- ther in a llussiarc or an Ottoman. Z. Fort rose. the London market. A similar reduction iu value is ex- perienced in every other article of farm produce, such as butter, cheese, eggs, & c. All this, however, is nothing extraordinary, as it was all anticipated by seeing men.— In one paiish of this county, twenty- six farmers are under legal proceedings for arrears of rents ; and as markets are still sinking, and only just coming to the level of a peace establishment, failures must daily increase. Few farmers in Aberdeenshire will be able to meet their coming term. A kind of mania for land existed in this country of late, but if it is not cured, it is curing; the lost capitals of thousands prove a salutary check on land speculators.— Farms have been offered 50 per cent, under their late rents, and are still unoccupied : so that it is evident, that experience begins to teach the necessity of caution. Ow- ing to this state of the farming interest, it is very evident, that no degree of taxation practicable can save the nation from a speedy failure, which alone can restore matters to a state in which all classes may work and eat.

The cir- cumstances which preceded, and whjpji we are told at- tended, her lamented decease, and those which are likely to follow it, nay, some of which must almost immediately follow it, will conspire to render her memory immortal. The Queen has been persecuted ; she has been long persecuf- ed ; she has been persecuted to the death ; persecuted even by those who ought to have protected her ; who would have gained honour and reputation by protecting her ; but who now have covered themselves vith a shame and an odium, which can never be wiped away. See to it, ye Ministers of the Gospel of peace ! See to it ye, w^ ose office it is to lift up the voice for the oppressed, and to plead for those that are doomed to die— what has been your conduct towards this illustrious Personage now no more, but on whom, while alive, the most powerful fac- tion could fix no guilt? Has it been becoming? Does it now offer you consolation ? Which of you dared to throw the first stone ? The truth is, with a few excep- tions, the British Clergy, from A. B. C. to X. Y. Z. have much to account for to their Flock, to their King, and to HIM by whom King's reign. Ye confidential Servants of the King, ye, who sit around the Throne in Council, in what circumstances do you find yourselves ? How will ye proceed ? Will you approach your widowed King in the language of condolence, or in that of congratulation ? In the language of condolence it cannot be ; and if ye do it in that of congratulation, ye will outrage the feelings of the whole nation. Ye will then consider the death of the Queen of England, the descendant of the illustrious House of Brunswick, as an event of no extraordinary nature. It cannot be: it is an event, be assured, which will attract the attention of Europe, and not of Europe only; it will be attended with more important consequences than have followed the death of any preceding Queen of Eng- land. UNUS DE MINIMIS. To the EDITOR of the ABERDEEN CHRONICLE. SIR, I. am a married man, Mr. Editor, and united to a woman in general well tempered, but who has got into the practice, of late, of purchasing what she conceives to be good bargains. Indeed, she now generally carries her fancies in that respect so high, that I am obliged to in- terfere ; for really it is not an easy thing to keep her in money, as my Leger at title " House Account" can tes- tify. For instance, there is not a public sale takes place, not even excepting the Pawnbrokers, but she attends. I generally ( being what is called a plain man) dine at two o'clock— but, when there is any sale, then my dinner hour is sure to be put off, in order that it may not interfere with her attendance at the sale. She generally comes home on these occasions accompanied with a large lot of useless articles, which she denominates *' great bargains" They may be so, Mr. Editor, to those ' who are in want of them— but to me it is very distressing. My house is well furnished, and we want for no convenience. Of course, these great bargains," as my Spouse terms them, are to us so much useless lumber which we have no earthly use for. She gets in, now and then, the wives of a neighbour or two, who, like herself, are great adepts in the science of making " great bargains"— and it really puts me out of all patience to hear them. They will, some- times, sit for hours together discussing what roups are to take place— what cheap sales are open— and what bar- gains may be expected. They will reckon, on their fingers, the day of Mr. Pawnbroker's Sale, and they will chuckle at the thoughts of it, and the " great bargains" to be ex- pected at it. : I used to reason a litile with my wife on the subject, j and tell her how absurd it was; how it was throwing jj away money to no purpose ; and, even allowing that we j stood in need of the articles, how detrimental it was to the local Shopkeeper, who pays heavy local and public taxes, and who ought always to be supported in preference to any puffing quack ; but it was all in vain, and I have given up the practice in despair. For I hardly began to say one word upon the subject, when she raised herself up, and poured forth such a torrent of admonition, inter- larded with encomiums/ on her great industry and my want of zeal, that I was terrified, and have now given up the practice, glad to purchase quiet even at the loss of a few pounds now and then— although it is very hard. In'short, Mr. Editor, so great is her passion for attending Sales and Roups of all descriptions, that I have often wished that the whole host of Pawnbrokers, Auctioneers, and other travelling Puffers were at the bottom of the sea, great Bargains and all. This is a very sinful and in- human wish no doubt ; but what could I do— torn and harrassed eternally with them and their trumpery as I am. I have now detailed to you, Mr. Editor, the distress- ing situation in which I stand— and I am persuaded I do not stand alone. It would, therefore, be doing the pub- lic in general and me in particular, a great favour, if either you, or any of your female friends, would take up the pen and give these 44 Sale Attenders," ( not forgetting my wife in particular) such a rating about their absurd propensity, that would make them ashamed of their con- duct. and give up their Sale attending in future. Aberdeen, August 16, 1821. W. C. To the EDITOR of the ABERDEEN CHRONICLE. Sir, THE present state of the Agricultural Interest an- nounces the very near approach of very important politi- cal changes— changes, however, which will involve that interest in still greater distress. Landowners have always, in the letting of their lands,. calculated on a return of war and of war prices for the produce of the soil, they seem to forget that the nation has no money, and what is more extraordinary, they forget that their enemy is dead. We must first create an enemy before* we fight, for NA- POLEON is now buried in St. Helena, and his boy is not yet of age. The great farmers, who once had capital, have given it to the landowner ; but. now, that the heritor has got his tenants all, the rent of lands must not exceed the labourer's industry, and the produce of the land.— There is no possibility of obtaining more, for there is no more to give. The price of farm produce is not now above one half what it was three years ago. x In Smith- field Market, meat sold at 3s. 9d. per stone, which is 26s. 3d. per cwi..

The Ladies in attendance on her late Majesty the Queen feel it incumbent on them to state to Mr. Hobhouse. that having only received intimation this day, at four o'clock in the afternoon, of the necessary preparations to make for the mourning, they find it impossible to complete the dresses requisite before Tuesday night. Unless the time until Wednesday morning is allowed for the removal of her late Majesty's remains, Lady Ann Hamilton and Lady Hood wiij no* have it in their power to attend the funeral. Brandenburgh House, Saturday night, Aug. 11. No. II. MR. IIOBHOUSE TO LADY ANN HAMILTON AND LADY IIOOD. Mr. Hobhouse has to acknowledge the receipt of the note addressed to him last night by Lady Ann Hamilton and Lady Hood, from which he is surprised to learn that the intention of moving the late Queen's remains, as nearly as possible in conformity with the wish expressed in her Majesty's will, should have been so recently communi- cated to their Ladyships ; the anxiety of the King's ser- vants to carry that wish into effect having been expressed to Dr. Lushiugton and Mr. Wylde on Wednesday, and at every subsequent interview, and those Gentlemen hav- ing yesterday stated that there would be no obstacle to the removal of the corps on Tuesday morning. Mr. Hob- house will lose no time in dispatching their Ladyships' note to Lord Liverpool, and will communicate his Lord- ship's answer at the earliest moment. Grosvenor Place, Aug. 12, half- past 8 A. M. To Lady Hood and Lady Ann Hamilton. No. III. MR. IIOBIIOUSE TO LADY ANN HAMILTON AND LADY HOOD. ( SECOND NOTE.) Mr. Hobhouse presents his compliments to Ladv Ann Hamilton and Lady Hood, and is directed by Lord Li- verpool to apprise their Ladyships that the order for the removal of her Majesty's remains on Tuesday is irrevoca- ble. Their Ladyships must be aware, that in cases of this nature, it is extremely frequent for persons who are to at- tend the interment to follow after the procession has pro- ceeded far on its route ; and it is presumed, that if their Ladyships should unfortunately not be entirely prepared on Tuesday morning, there can be no objection to this course being adopted on the present occasion. Whitehall, Aug. 12, 4 P. M. No. IV. LADY IIOOD TO THE EARL OF LIVERPOOL. MY I^ ORD— Though I have not the honour of your Lordship's acquaintance, 1 cannot resist the impulse I feel to address you, not as the Minister of tin's country, but I wish to speak to your heart ; and I am nst without the hope of inspiring you with sympathy on this most in- teresting and awful subject. I have often, my Lord, heard you highly spoken of. Some time ago I was ac- quainted with a Lady who was either nearly allied to you, or the late L^ dy Liverpool, Iler sentiments of your good principles inspire me with hope that you will act up to that excellent monitor within every one's breast—" To do do as they would be done by." Why. my Lord, is her Majesty's funeral thus indecently hurried ? Mr. Hob- house replied to a note written by Lady Ann Hamilton and myself—" Because it was the Queen's request in her will.** This is, I believe, the first and only request e> f her Majesty's that ever has been complied with. And allow me. my Lord, to put another question to you— Why is there to be a guard of honour appointed to attend her fu- neral, which honour was never given her during her life ? If such is persisted in, I foresee much mischief, and I fear bloodshed. The people have ever been her Majesty's only friends; suffer ihemto pay their last tribute of affec- tion to their beloved anel injured Queen, without being interrupted by the military. I have been in the habit of attending her Majesty for the last five months through immense crowds, and not a single accident has ever oc- curred. Why, my Lord, is the corpse to be carried out of the direct road to disappoint the people ? For Heaven's sake revoke this sentence ; the evil of it exceeds all calcu- lation. I have, my Lord, been the companion of the Queen for the last five months ; my previous knowledge of her good and estimable qualities alone induced me to accept this situation, and from seeing her deserted by all her former associates and* friends. And I can with truth assure you. that not even the bitterest enemy could cen- sure her Majesty's conduct; and her death- bed, my Lord — that awful moment to which we are all approaching— is an example to all living. She died in peace, I do be- lieve, with all the world ; and during her illness fre- quently said " Je tie sais si en mourant j'aurai a souffrir des douleurs physiques, ma is je puis vous assurer que je quitterai la vie sans regret ; and she desired her female attendant. Brunette, to assure her sister Demont that she had forgiven her. I have one more appeal to make to your Lordship ; and first I will ask you why the funeral of the Queen of England should he so much more hurried than that for your Lordship's late wife ? That event proves your Lordship's opinion on the subject; the Queen will not have been dead a week till after ten o'clock next Tuesday night ; therefore, I trust your heart will dic- tate the same degree of outward respect, if not love for your Queen. And now, my Lord I have only to say, that I have been surprised at the interruption of the tran- quillity of tliis house by a show of mourning, the having apart of this Itouse with black, which cannot be completed before Monday night, if so soon ; and the pro- ceeding has only been interrupted this day ( Sunday) dur- ing the time her Majesty's elomestic ch- aplain performed the church service*. I trust, my Lord, you will not order her Majesty's funeral before Wednesday or Thursday next. I will only add, my Lord, that every word of this is dictated by myself, and that I have set down nought in malice ; for my late beloved mistress ( the Queen) set me a better example ; but my conscience will not allow ine to continue silent, and I entreat that your Lordship will grant all the requests contained in this letter ; and in so doing, be assured I shall ever feel the highest veneration and esteem, permit me to add affection, for your Lord- ship, and believe me, my Lord, your humble servant, JANE HOOD. Brandenburgh House, Aug. 12, 1821. The Right Hon. the Earl of Liverpool, Coombe Wood. No. V. THE EARL OF LIVERPOOL TO LADY IIOOD. Coombe Wood, Aug. 12. MADAM— I have this moment had the honour of receiv- ing your Ladyship's letter, and I think it right to ob- serve in answer to it, that when her late Majesty's exe- cutors communicated to me copies of her last will, on Wednesday last, by which it appeared that her Majesty desired, that three days after her death Irer body should be sent te> Brunswick for interment, I felt it to be my du'y to give directions, in the King's absence, that her Majesty's intentions in this respect might be carried into effect with as little delay as possible; and I lost no time in laying before the King the directions which had been issued for this purpose. I have since received his Majesty's commands to continue to act in conformity to the orders first given. I had directed that the funeral should proceed from Brandenburgh House to. morrow morning; but upon a representation which I received from Dr. Lushington yesterday-, it was agreed to put off the departure till Tuesday, and I feel that I should be now acting in direct contradiction to the King's com- mands, as well as contrary to the intention of her late Majesty, if I was a party to any further delay. I am sorfv it is not in my power to return a more satisfactory answer to your Lordship's letter ; but I have been ready from tfie beginning to communicate with her Majesty's executors on the arrangements necessary to be made on this melancholy occasion; and it has been the anxious desire of the King and his Government that every thing should be conducted in lite most becoming, orderly, and decent manner. I have the honour to be. Madam, Your Ladyship's obedient humble Servant, LIVERPOOL. No. VI. LADY HOOD TO LORD LIVERPOOL. MY LORD— 1 have to acknowledge the receipt of your Lordship's letter, and though certainly not according with my wishes, yet please to accept my thanks for the promptness of your reply. But, my Lord, there is a material part of my letter which you have not answered ( my question.)— Why is a guard of honour appointed to attend her Majesty's funeral? I can venture to pro- nounce, if there are no soldiers, there will not be any dis- position to tumult, therefore I do most earnestly pray your Lordship to give up the idea of iier Majesty's re- mains having any other guard than that of the people.— They were to her Majesty, during her life, her most wel- come attendants, and surely if your Lordship is so ten- acious in strictly adhering to her Majesty's request in her will, you cannot fail being equally so in complying wi; h what I am sine would be her Majesty's wish, was she living to speak— as it was ever her desire to have no sol- diers, but to be attended and guarded solely by the hearts of her people. In their love she ever confided ; and surely, my Lord, you will not, at this awful moment, of her interment, act so decidedly contrary to her inclina- tion. I omitted to mention, in my last letter to your Lord- ship, that the person sent by Government for providing the mourning for her Majesty's servants, did not arrive at Brandenburgh House till yesterday noon, consequently | neither Lady Ann Hamilton, Lord Hood, or myself, ' and several other gentlemen, could think it requisite to be in such haste to order their mourning; and until Dr. Lushington and Mr. Wilde arrived at Brandenburgh House late yesterday evening, we could not form an idea of the funeral being fixed for so early a dav. I must again repeat that, on no occasion whatever, has the Government ever ordered the troops to attend her Majesty; I trust, therefore, your Lordship will not think e> f such a measure, upon this occasion of her Majesty's funeral; and 1 also conclude, from your Lordship not replying to that part of iwy letter respecting her Majesty's removal, that the procession wi{ 1 be ordered to move in the direct and nearest road through the city of London, as, I am informed, that the Lord Mayor and the Corpo- ration of London intend meeting the funeral procession at Temple Bar; and surely your Lordship will not offer an insult to so ancient and respectable a body, who have ever shown their attachment to the Royal Family* I flatter myself your Lordship will forgive my thus troubl- ing voii, and impute it to my zeal anel attachment to my much- loved and departed Queen; and IJ> eg to subscribe myself Your Lordship's humble Servant, JANE IIOOD. Brandenbnrgh House, Sunday evening, August 12, 1821. ANSWER. Coombe Wood, Sunday night, Aug. 12. MADAM— 1 have had the honour of receiving your Ladyship's second letter, and I must only repeat, that it is my duty to obey the King's commands as to the ar- rangement to be made for her Majesty's funeral ( what- ever these arrangements may be or will be, have been duly communicated from the Secretary of State's Office to her Majesty's Executors); and I am under the neces- sity of adding, that no discussion can take place with any other persons on the subject. I have the honour to be Madam, Your Ladyship's obedient humble Servant, To Viscountess Hood. LIVERPOOL. ihuural ^ rorwfo'fom On Tuesday morning a great part of the population of the metropolis was in motion to pay the last respect to the remains of the Queen, before they are transported forever from a country which has been the scene of her persecu- tions and her triumphs. The people had been studiously kept in the dark, as tothecourse the procession wasto take, perhaps with the view of getting that appearance of desert- ed n ess to the funeral, which her enemies so studiously laboured to give to her Majesty's dwelling during her life. The anxiety of the people, however, to obtain the infor- mation that was withheld from them, was the means of showing the interest which they felt. The state of the weather was such as would have scared mere idle specta- tors. The morning was unusually dark, anel rain fading without intermission added to the gloom which the solemn affair of the day was calculated to create. The only information which the public had obtained, as to the direction which the corpse was to take, was con- tained in the letter from Mr. Hobhouse to the Sheriffs of London, which was. however merely negative, viz.— that the royal corpse should not pass through the city. It was thought, perhaps, that the passage of the remains of her Majesty through the city, attended by the Corporation, might have called to mind another occasion when the per- secuteel Lady, whose remains are now to be borne te> their last resting- place, went, amidst the gratnlations of an un- exampled multitude, to offer thanks ( alas, how premature- ly !) for her success against the malice of her enemies.— It would have been an affecting spectacle to have seen her, the lifeless victim e » f a seconel more slow and more artful attack, borne through the same flood of an affectionate people to her last resting- place. At a late hour last night a meeting of the Committee that had formerly conducted the procession of the Queen to St. Paul's, was convened at the Freemasons' Tavern; Joseph Hume, Esq. M. P. Sir Gerard Noel, Mr. Thel- wall, and several other gentlemen entered the room at ten o'clock, and Mr. II. proceeded to inform the meeting that they had just left Brandenburgh House ; and he was sorry to say that government had thought fit to withhold all information from her Majesty's executors as to the ex- act route they intended to remove the royal body ; but he earnestly requested all those gentlemen who would ac- company the funeral to meet in the front of Branelenburgh House as early as six in the morning. The government, he likewise stared, had refused to permit IMr. Alderman Wood to form any part of the attendance on that melan- choly journey, as lie did not strictlv belong to her late Majesty's household. Mr. Thelwall was requested to in- form the numerous assemblage in front of the Tavern of all that had transpired at the meeting, which that gentle- man die?, and the crowds separated in the most orUi rly manner. Mr. Bailey, of Mount Street, Grosvenor Square, whom his Majesty's government had appointed conductor of her Majesty's funeral procession, left his house at half past four o'clock, preceded hy thirteen mourning coaches and six, a hearse and eight horse, with the various funeral ha- biliments and paraphernalia, and arrived between five and six o'clock at Brandenburgh House. Sir George Nayler, as Clarenceux King of Arms, arrived by six o'clock, at- tended by IMr. Hood, the herald ; they weie ushered into the state apartment, and a scene of a very extraordi- nary nature immediately took place. Dr. Lushington spoke to the following effect : —" Sir George Nayler and Mr. Bailey— You know what basal- ready taken place upon the subject of her late Majesty's interment; you know what has been the expressed wish of her late Majesty's executors upon the necessity of de- la) for the purpose of making preparations for so- long a journey; and also upon the disgraceful conduct that has been persisted in by his Majesty's government ( in such direct opposition to the known will of her late M tjesty), in forcing into the funeral procession a great body of soldiers. 1 enter my solemn protest against the removal of her Majesty's body, in right of the legal power which is vested in me by her late " Majesty, as executor. Proper arrangements for the funeral, and the long journey, and voyage by sea, have root been made; there has not been time for it; and I command that the body be not removed till the arrangements suitable to the rank and dignity of the deceased are made. Mr. BAILKY. — I have orders from Government to re- move the body, which is now in the custody of the Lord Chamberlain; I must do my duty. The body must be removed. Dr. LUSHINGTON.— Touch the body at your peril. You i have no power to act contrary to the will of her Majesty's executors; and they do their duty by protesting against , such an usurpation. Mr. BAILKY.— You do not mean to use violence, and prevent by force the removal of the body. I trust, l> r. Lushington? Dr. LUSHINGTON.— I shall use no violence myself. Mr. BAILEY.— Nor recognise it in others ? l) r. LUSHINTON — I shall neither assist iu, nor recom- mend violence; nor shall I join the procession in my of- ficial character of executor, but merely go as a private in- dividual. to show my respect for her, Majesty. Mr. BAILEY. — Very well, Sir: t shall discharge my duty firmly, and I trust properly. After the above conversation had passed the Procession was arranged. Mr. BAILEY complained that every impediment was thrown in the way of the persons whose duty it was to at- tend the removal of, the body. He took out of his pocket a paper, and read from it the route of the procession.— " The funeral cavalcade to pass from the gate at Branden- burgh house through Hammersmith, to turn round by Kensington Gravel Pits, near the Church, Into the Ux- bridge road, to Bayswater, from thence to Tyburn Turn- pike, down the Edgware road, along the New road to Islington, down the City road, along Old Street, Mile End, to Romford, & c. , A squadron of Oxford Blues from Brandenburgh House to Romford, to attend the procession ; a squadron of the 4th Light Dragoons from Romford to Chelmsford ; another squadron of the same regiment from Chelmsford to Colchester; another escort from Colchester to Harwich, where a Guard of Honour is in waiting." Mr. WII. DE declared that he would not go into the pro- cession in the route mentioned by Mr. Bailey, nor should the body be taken, except by force ; and, when the be> dy stoppeel at the first stage, he probably should be there to exercise his legal right as executor ( which was superior to any usurped power then exercised by the Officers em- ployed by his Majesty's Ministers) to have tire body re- moved according to his own will and that of her late Ma- jesty, without squadrons of soldiers. Mr. BATT'EY said, that his orders were imperative, and that nothing should prevent him doing his duty. He would take upon himself the peril of removing the body, i The Procession moved through crowds of people, in a solemn manner as far as Kensington. It thus appeared j that it was the intention of the conductors, in pursuance ' of the orders of the Government, to turn the procession to tlse left, through the Gravel Pits to the Oxford Road, ! whence they might proceed by Tyburn Turnpike and the Edgware Road to the end of the New Road ; but an un- expected obstacle was found to this arrangement. Two waggons were drawn across the street which led to the Gravel pits, one of them loaded. The other was a mili- tary waggon. By what chance of for what purpose it was placed there, we have not learned. On the representa- tion of some persons in the suite, the military waggon was speedily removed ; but this was no sooner done than another waggon, which was on the other side of the main street, was thrust by the people into the gap. The peo- ' pie seemed determined to resist any attempt to remove these waggons, aud continually cried. u Through the ' City !— through the City f' There was no attempt at this time to remove the waggons by force. The soldiers, who all along acted with temper, sat quietly on their horses in the places which had been assigned to them in the train. A message was sent from Kensington to Lord Liver- pool. Meantime the barrier increased by the constant ac- cumulation of carls from behind. We hear, but we do , not state it from our own knowledge, that there was a trench dug in the upper part of the Gravel pit Road. The conductor of die procession would not take upon himself the responsibility of moving in any other direction than that laid down in the written direction. The procession reached Kensington at half past nine. It was not till eleven that il moved on again, in consequence of a mes- sage, it is said, from the Earl of Liverpool. This, how- ever, iu the crowd and confusion at the time it was im- possible for us to ascertain correctly. The procession then moved on to the gate into Hyde Park, near Ken- sington. The Park now presented the spectacle of an immense | multitude. As far as the eye could reach the space was j covered with umbrellas. Some of the Life Guards re> de I to anel fro, which seemed to excite much displeasure 1 among the crowd, which was testified by hissings and hoot- J ings. It was about twelve o'clock that the procession t entered the Park. TI1E I'EOPLE FIRED UPON BY THE MILITARY. We are sorry to have to communicate the fatal result of J the ill advised steps which his Majesty's Ministers have thought fit to take respecting the procession. The people all along had testified the utmost dissatisfaction at the in- tention signified of not passing through the City. This dissatisfaction was testified in the loudest manner in Hyde ' Park, by the immense multitude which was spread over j the great area. When the head of the Procession reached • Cumberland Gate, about half past 1 2, a stoppage took j place, the people crowded and wedged together at the end of Oxford Street and within the gates were not very able or willing to make way. We saw an officer ride down Park lane for the purpose, as it appeared, of bringing up another body of soldiers. A troop of Horse Guards then appeared and galloped up at full speed towards the gate. As the Horse Guards advanced towards Cumberland- gate, the people crowded forward and manifested an in- tention of preventing the hearse from passing through. • The Guards, who were not only hissed but pelted with mud and stones, attempted to proceed, but the crowd rushed forward and closed one side of the gate. The soldiers then charged upon the people, and the gate was forceil open, but it was again closed for a few moments. The soldiers having at length got through, were again peltecl with mud and stones. Some persons attempted to block up the entrance to the Edgware- road, and posts, stones, &<:. were torn up for that purpose. The Guards now charged a second time, and many severe wounds were inflicted. The Riot Act having ( as we understand) been read by Sir R. Baker, the Horse- Guards fired upon the people and did serious injury. One of the sufferers is Honey, a cabinet maker, Compton Street, Soho ; helie^ at the General Wetherell, . Oxford Street, and has just been recognised by his brother. Another lies dead at Mr. Lightfoot's. surgeon, Oxford Street. All unfortunate man, who had been carried to the Hospital, shortly after died of his wounds. The firing ( single shots) lasted four or five minutes, eluring which period it is impossible to describe the distress and confusion which prevailed ; men aud women were seen running in all directions, endeavour- ing to avoid the attacks of the soldiers, who brandished their swords and pushed forward with most determined boldness and intrepidity. We must here observe, that the Oxford Blues took no part whatever in this attack upon the people — their eon- ekict throughout was highly praiseworthy. The obstruc- tions to the entrance of the Edgware- road having been, at length removed, the proce. vsion moved forward, but not quietly. The people continued throwing mud aud calling out " Piccadilly Butchers P' and " the Blues for ever !" When the procession had got about half- way up the Edgware road the Life Guards were collected together, and galloped off through a street to the light, amidst the hisses and hootings of the multitude. The Oxford Blues who remained were loudly and repeatedly cheered. The procession now moved quietly along until it reached the New- road, when its quiet was disturbed by the Horse Guards again making their Appearance. Their Officer rode up to and conversed for a short time with Sir It. j Baker ; he as well as the men who accompanied him were • receiveel by the crowd with the usual salutation of groans I and hisses ; they at length disappeared, and quiet was j again restored. I The Precession had now nearly reached that part of the i Xew- road which is intersected Uy Tottenham- court- road | and the Ilampstead road, where loud cries were heard of j " To the City, to the City !— we have got no Piccadilly j Butchers here now." The New- road appeared open and j unobstructed ; but in a few minutes, before the Blues tame up, it was completely blocked up by waggons, carts, hackney coaches, & c. Here the Procession was halted, and all was again confusion and noise. Sir Robert Baker spoke to the Officer who commanded the Blues, and the men were formed two deep in front of the barricade. The people, however, were resolute, and positively refused to stir an inch ; they insisted that her Majesty's body should he convoyed through the City. Sir Robert Baker seemed undecided how to act ; but after a long consultation will* ( we believe) another Magistrate, and the Officer of the party, it was determined that the party should proceed down Tottenham court- road. This decision of the Ma- gistrates was received with loud and repeated cheers and » Y clapping of hands hy the thousands who attended the pro- cession ; indeed the people seemed delighted to find that tlie Royal liody should pass through tho City. Their joy was not, however, of loqg duration, for the procession had not proceeded more than one hundred yards down Tottenham- court- road, when a party ofthe Foot Guards, headed by an officer on horseback, was seen advancing in the opposite direction. The crowd manifested strong symptoms of dissatisfaction at perceiving this renewed attempt to oppose their wishes. Nothing was to he heard but loud cries of " shame," and 11 to the City, to the City !" The soldiers were drawn up across the road immediately in front, of the procession, which of course halted. The officer rode up to Sir R. Baker, and after a short conversa- tion. the Infantry filed off and went down Francis Street. The Magistrates and the troops who were iu front took * be same direction, evidently with a view of taking the procession clear of the City, but the crowd again objected, and insisted on going through the City. Ilere again all was riot and confusion. The Oxford I3lues were brought forward ; they rode iu among the people, but did not attempt to injure any one. Sir R. Baker, after some con- versation with the officer who commanded the Blues, and the gentleman to whom we have already alluded, again gave up the contest, and the joyous multitude rushed for- ward, as if conscious of having gained a second victory. The procession now moved on with the greatest tranquillity, and tfie crowds who lined the sides of the streets manifest- ed their satisfaction hy shouting the Blues for ever !" The whole of the windows, both here and in the other streets, were filled with respectable dressed females, who testified their respect for the metnoty of her late Majesty hy waving of handkerchiefs, clapping of hands, & c. We observed th. it many Ladies, both in the windows and in the carriages and other vehicles with which the streets were lined, shed tears on viewing the hearse in which the t . retrains of her Majesty were contained, ; It was at first matter of surprise to see with what skill and dexterity the people had blockaded one end of the New- road, but on passing along, it wasobserved that every ^ uher avenue by which the procession could be turned out of the direct course w as equally well blocked up. The Magistrate had consented to allow the procession to pass through Holhttrn, and it proceeded through Broad Street, until it approached the end of Drury- lane. In Holhorn the blockade system was again resorted to. A large eight horse waggon, just then coming up. was drawn across the road, and upon this the people placed themselves as if to prevent its removal. Indeed the people, grown bold with success, seemed to feel that they would, and ought to have every thing their own way. No further resistance was made by the Magistrates, and the cortege proceeded down Drury . lane, through Newcastle Street ( Wych Street having been also blocked up), into the Strand. Here, however, an obstruction of a more formidable nature pre- sented itself— an obstruction both placed and calculated to prevent the party from going westward, had they been so inclined. It consisted of a double file of the Foot Guards drawn aiross tire Strand, close to the New Church. ' Hie people expressed some dissatisfaction on seeing this, but the Procession passed on without any interruption. When it passed through Temple- bar. the cheers and . shouting were tumultuous. Repeated cries were heard of " Here we are in the City at last, in spite of them !" The office of The yew Times was. as usual, saluted with groans and hisses while the people cheered on passing the house of Mr. Waithtnan. It was expected that the Lord Mayor anil Corporation would meet the procession at Temple Bar, but the determination of Government to prevent the funeral from passing through the City pre- vented their doing so. Ilis Lordship, however, accom- panied by Mr. Sheriff Williams, the Sword Bearer, & c. § met it at the fool of Ludgate- hill, and accompanied it to Whitechapel. The number of carriages increased greatly as the funeral proceeded, and the number of persons in the streets was so great that the horsemen found it difficult, even in the widest streets, to move along two abreast.— The crowd was much increased below Whitechapel by a number of decently dressed sailors, who locked arms, anil walked along iu a most orderly and respectful manner. Never on any former occasion, did we witness so large an assemblage of persons, and never were sympathy and sorrow for the sufferings of an injured Lady more generally, or more sincerely expressed than on this, c-? After the departure ofthe body from London nothing farther occurred to disturb the procession, which many bf tile papers state, was hurried on in a very indecent manner. In the church at Colchester, however, an alter- cation took place between t^ e Queen's executors and 85 those appointed by Government to conduct the funeral, fe Her Majesty had expressed a wish to have a plate on the coffin, with an inscription iu which she is styled the in- jured Queen of England, and Dr. Lushiugton. while the body was lying in the church at Colchester, bad this plate screwed on the coffin. Sir George Nayler. how- S ever, insisted that this plate should be taken off, which, by the aitl of the civil authorities, was effected, Dr. Lushington protesting against the illegality of the pro- ceeding HARWICH— This town, during the day ( Thurs- day) was a scene of unusual bustle. A great number of persons was collected together in the town, from several of the neighbouring places, hut particularly from Ipswich, which is only ten miles distance. The cavalcade arrived on the brow of the hill, above the circular redoubt, at twelve o'clock, and there it halt- ed whilst one of tile escort rode forward into the town, to make seme communication with the commander of the troops. Shortly after a strong detachment of the 86th Irish regiment of foot marched out of the town, and, after halting a few minutes, formed four a- breast, and advanced towards the procession in slow march, with their arms reversed. As they approached it, the advanc- ed guard of the escort attending the procession opened to the right and left, and the detachment of foot faced in front. The cavalcade immediately moved forward down the hill into the town, in slow and solemn pace, the band of the 86th playing the " Dead March in Saul." On entering the town it did not proceed through the princi- pal streets, but took the nearest way to the jetty, where arrangements had been made for the embarkation of the Roy. iT coffin, through lanes and narrow streets but ill suited for such a pageant. Arrived at the avenue leading down to the jetty, the cavalry drew off, and the infantry lined the sides of the avenue. The mourners and mem- bers of her Majesty's household then alighted from the carriages, and the coffin having been taken from the hearse, the whole moved down the platform of the jetty. The Captains of the different vessels of the squadron appointed to convey the body to the continent were in waiting at ilie extremity of the platform to receive it. It was immediately placed under the crane, to which new ropes had been attached, and was immediately lowered into the barge ofthe Glasgow frigate ; the other boats of the squadron all suriounding. the crews manning their oars, the band ofthe 86th still playing the Dead March, and Languard Fort firing minute guns as it descended. The roval standard was then hoisted in the prow ofthe Glasgow's barge; and she was towed with the melancholy burden alongside the Pioneer schooner through a multi- tude of vessels and boats, all ciowded with company, who all took off their hats as it passed. The Pioneer instantly got under weigh, and proceeded down the har- bour round the point at Languard Fort, where the royal coffin was taken on board the Glasgow. After the body was placed in the boat, Lord Hood, who stood with tile other mourners on the jetty, address- ed himself to Captain White, and asked him what ar- rangements had been made, by order of his Majesty's Government, for conveying him and his friends back from the Continent to England ? and stated that he should not embark till he knew what orders had been issued upon the subject hy the Admiralty. Capt. White replied, that the squadron that conveyed them to Stade would remain in the harbour, at anchor, till the funeral procession re- turned from Brunswick, and there they would re- embark for England. His Lordship expressed his entire satis- faction, and after taking refreshment with his friends, he and Lady Hood, Dr. and Mrs. Lushington. Mr. and Mrs. Wilde, Lady Hamilton, Mr. Austin, J. P. Wood ( the son of Alderman Wood), her Majesty's late chap- lain. Mr. Ilieronymus, her late steward. Count Vassali. Mademoiselle de Ilrune ( Demont's sister) her late Ma- jesty's . file de chtmbre. Mademoiselle Carlton ( Lady Hood's maid), and Miss Filz ( Lady Hamilton's maid), were rowed in a boat from the pier to the Glasgow frigate, and went on board. Mr. Brougham, accompanied by Sir R. Wilson, almost immediatelv left Harwich for Loudon. Alderman Wood is not amongst the persons going with the remains of the Queen ; it is said he was refused, on the ground of his holding no official situation in the Queen s household.— He was permitted to attend in the funeral procession merely by courtesy. Jt is stated that he is gone by a packet to Calais, and goes from thence to the Elbe to at- tend the procession to Brunswick. It is rather a singular circumstance, that Capt. Doyle, who has orders to take the body of her Majesty in charge, was the officer who, on the 28th of March. 1735, hand- ed to her Majesty the hand- rope to assist her in coming up the side of his Majesty's ship Jupiter, when she em- barked at Cuxliaven for England to be married. A body guard of honour ( of the Royal marines) embarked on board the Glasgow. Stade, the place for which the ship sailed from Har- wich with her Majesty's body, is upon the river Elbe, distant by sea from Harwich a, bout 400 English miles.— Stade is within the kingdom of Hanover, and the distance thence to Brunswick is about 110 miles, over roads of the worst description.

LONDON, August 18. THE KING'S ARRIVAL IN IRELAND. We announced in our last, the departure of the King for Ireland from Holyhead, in the Lightning steam packet. We have now the pleasure to announce the safe arrival of his Majesty in Dublin. Down to Sunday morn- ing the wind continued unfavourable. The period of a change was uncertain, and it was the opinion of the naval officers in the royal squadron that if his Majesty were to proceed to sea in the royal yacht, with the wind continuing in the point in which it then was. the voyage to Dublin probably could not be effected in less than two days. In this extremity his Majesty resolved to attempt a passage in a steam boat, having obsetved the regularity with which vessels of that description performed their voyages, in defiance of wind and tide. Sunday morning, at a quarter before eleven o'clock, his Majesty, attended by the Mar- quis of Londonderry and a numerous Suite, accordingly went on board the Lightning steam packet, which im- mediately proceeded for Dublin, and arrived at Hovvth in the afternoon. Ilis Majesty and suite landed at that place a little after five o'clock. Sir Benjamin Bloomfield was there in waiting to receive him, and his Majesty, accompanied by him, proceeded in a private carriage to the Castle of Dublin, where he alighted about six o'clock. All public demonstrations of joy were dispensed with, in consequence of the death of the Queen, and it was his Majesty's intention to continue in privacy until after the day ( yesterday) fixed for the removal of her Majesty's re- mains for Harwich, on their way to Brunswick. His Majesty was so much pleased with his voyage, and with the advantage derived from the mode of conveyance, he was graciously pleased to command that the Lightning should be in future called The Royal George the Fourth. Shortly after the landing of his Majesty, the Marquis of Londonderry wrote a dispatch to the Earl of Liverpool in London, with which he sent off Mr. Salter, one of the Treasury messengers, by The Royal George the Fourth, who arrived at Holyhead between three and four o'clock on Monday morning. Mr. Salter arrived in London yesterday about half- past four o'clock, with the account ofthe safe arrival of the King. His Majesty, we are assured, has made Captain Skin- ner, who commanded the Lightning Packet, a Master and Commander in the Royal Navy. This promotion has given universal satisfaction. His Majesty also made Capt. Skinner a present of a valuable snulf- box. On the King's landing in Ireland, on Sunday, the first personage he recognized on the pier, was the Earl of Kingston—" Kingston, Kingston," said his Majesty, " I am heartily rejoiced to see you, you good- natured black whiskered fellow, in this friendly country. IIow do you do ?"— Dublin Evening Post. DUBLIN, Aug. 13.— I have been enabled during the course of this day, to collect more ample particulars res- pecting the reception of his Majesty in this country, which I am gratified in being able to say was warm in the ex- treme. There is not on the face of the earth, a more loyal country than Ireland— a people more ardently devoted to the Sovereign can no where be found. As the Lightning Steam Packet. approached the shores of Howth, his Ma- jesty was recognised, he was dressed in blue, with a seal skin travelling cap, and waving it over his head. On its being ascertained that his Majesty was on board, ( he cheers of the people rent the air; his Majesty returned those grateful salutations by taking off his cap, and waving it over his head ; he ascended from the vessel by means of a small ship ladder, and on getting to the top, he was much inconvenienced by the pressure ofthe people, all anxious to get a sight of his Majesty— til anxious to pay marks of homage and affection to their Sovereign. Ilis Majesty bore the inconvenience with good humour, he saw the cause of it, which must have been gratifying to the best feelings of his heart. The King was now completely sur- rounded, public enthusiasm soon bore down the cold forms of outward respect, his Majesty himself forgot his state while he retained his dignity. Ilis welcome was hearty, warm, and sincere, without state or form of any kind ; he witnessed in their most natural state the feelings of a people grateful to their King ; devoted notwithstand- ing tire bitterness of disappointment, to him. who in early- life, was the Prince of their hopes and their affections.— Numbers who were strangers to his Majesty pressed for- ward and shook him heartily by the hand'; with difficulty his Majesty made his way to the carriage, around which the people thronged, extending their hands and giving ut- terance to every expression of regard ; his Majesty seemed much affected, he bent forward towards the crowd, and stretching forth his hands exclaimed, " I thank you from my heart, God bless you all." The carriage now drove off, followed, as I stated in my last letter, hy a number of horsemen, carriages, and cars. A number of Gentle- men who accompanied his Majesty, halted outside the gate ofthe Lodge, which the King perceiving, waved his hand in an encouraging manner, and said, " Come on my friends, come on." On alighting from his carriage, he was again cheered in a vehement manner ; he bowed repeatedly, and addres ^ d the persons present as follows : " My Lords and Gentlemen, and my good Yeomanry, " I cannot express to yon the gratification I feel at the warm and kind reception I have met with on this day of my landing among my Irish subjects— I am obliged to you all. I am particularly obliged by your escorting me to my very door. " I may not be able to express my feelings as I wish.— I have travelled far. I have made a long sea voyage— : besides which particular circumstances have occurred, known to you all— of which it is better at present not to speak. Upon those subjects I leave it to delicate and ge- nerous hearts to appreciate my feelings. " This is one of the happiest days of my life. I have long'wished to visit you— my heart has always been Irish. From the day it first, beat I have loved Ireland. This day has shewn me that 1 am beloved by my Irish subjects.— Rank, station, honours, are nothing ; but, to feel that I live in the hearts of my Irish subjects, is to me the most exalted happiness. " I must now once more thank you for your kindness, and bid you farewell. Go and do by me as a- I shall do by you—. drink my health in a bumper ; I shall drink all your's— in a bumper of good Irish whisky." The following characteristic anecdote is worth relat- ing :— Several persons having walked on the grass in the lawn, a Gentlemen called out to them not to tread on the grass. His Majesty turned round in an animated man- ner arid said—" Don't mind the grass— d— n the grass— let them walk where they please." After liis Majesty re tired the crowd in the Park continued to increase from all parts of the town, nor did the people leave the spot till the evening far advanced. The news of his Majesty's arrival spread the utmost joy through .- ill parts of Dublin. No- thing can exceed the lively and splendid appearance of the town this day— beauty and fashion graced the streets — joy beamed from every countenance. It certainly is truly gratifyingtosee hope aud confidence give place to those bit- ter feelingsof discontent and animosity which have been so long cherished in Ireland, which law and Government promoted, and which have done so much to retard the ad- vance of a country which, under a wise system, is capable of great things. It is not yet settled what day his Majesty is to make his grand entry into Dublin. Thursday has been named, and I have reason to believe fixed upon in the. early part of the day ; but it was subsequently consi- dered too early. The whole ofthe programme must, he alter- ed ; Monday I think, will be the day. The Castle- yard — the Parks— the streets— every part of Dublin was crowded this day. About one o'clock the Marquis of Londonderry, accompanied by a single gentleman and servant, rode from the Park down the Quays. He was not recognized. I saw the Noble Marquis approach the town. He looked remarkably well ; he rode on with con- fidence, yet I thought I saw something, like anxiety on his countenance. I believe, he has not been here since the Union— the Union which was promoted by him, and which has done more injury to Ireland than any act of any Parliament, or of any conqueror. The Theatre, which was open on the day that the intelligence of the Queen's death arrived, has been closed this evening by order from the Castle. After the departure of his Majesty, the Marquis of Londonderry, as he was preparing to enter his carriage, was recognised by the people, who immediately bailed him with loud huzzas. The Noble Marquis took off his hat, and returned the shouts of the, people, b\ repeatedly bow- ing to them. Before he had time to enter his carriage, a Gentleman, Mr.' 15. Norwood,. of Townshend Street., step- ped from the crowd, and .% ddressin£ his Lordship, said, " My Lord, you have been well rt « -(. ved to- day after an absence of upwards of 20 years from the capital of your native country, and we have one favour to ask of you." " Ask it," said his Lordship. " A Repeal ofthe Window Tax," replied Mr. Norwood. His Lordship, laying his hand upon his heart, said, emphatically, " On my ho- nour. if it is in my power, it shall be granted." This de- claration was received by the people with reiterated shouts of applause. AUGUST 14.— The Castle- yard has this day been crowded with persons of distinction, leaving thejr names as inquirers after his Majesty's health. The Marquis of Londonderry was conspicuous in the throng. lie was followed by a vast number of persons, and on one occasion was cheered by some of the Castle- yard placemen and ex- pectants— I have little doubt, men whose servility would carry them to any lengths, however degrading to their country and themselves. 1 was in the Castle- yard when this disgusting exhibition took place. I am far from enter- taining towards the object of this most unnatural adulation any feelingof personal hostility— far from it - I know and respect the brilliant parts of his character— his manly courage— his fascinating polished manners in public, and I have often heard, that in private there is no better man- but he is the man that turned a parricidal hand upon his country— he was the instrument of her degradation— he broke down her spirit, and prostrated, I fear for ever, her independence— every one knew that the Union gave a death blow to Ireland, and that the odious measure was carried at a moment of national weakness by the most scandalous and profligate means. To see the author of that measure cheered near the very spot which, through his means, the independence of Ireland was laid low, ex- ceeds any thing we can read of in the vilest days of Roman debasement. Brutus was obliged to fly from Rome after striking down the tyrant. Socrates was sacrificed and Themistocles was banished by the ungrateful Athenians; but where is there an instance of a people following and fawning upon the author of their own misery ? It is not so here ; the voice of a servile and abject set of place hun- ters will not be taken, I trust, for the voice ofthe country at large. Should any improper use be made of the cir cumstance, you certainly may with great, safety say that the cheers which the Noble Marquis received were very partial. DUBLIN, Aug. 17.— His Majesty this day entered the City bythe route formerly described. lie was ac • companied by the personages, and received with the cere- monials which had been previously arranged, but it is im- possible to convey, in language, an idea of the feelingsof veneration, of love, of enthusiasm, with which this Patriot Monarch was greeted by his loyal and truly attached Irish subjects. The page of history presents no parallel— the fiction of poetry affords no passage sufficiently strong to represent the scene exhibited this day. The sensation ex- perienced by the thousands who took a part in the pro- ceedings, was joy, unmixed, and ofthe purest character — felt by all, but impossible to be described. A Privy Council has been held upon the subject ofthe proceedings on Tuesday, when the procession of her Ma- jesty's body, & c. was obstructed. The offence of obstruct- ing the body of royalty amount* to little less than treison. Dispatches were sent to his Majesty at Dublin, inform- ing him of the circumstance. An express was also sent off* to Lord Sidmouth, informing him of the proceedings which took ploce in Colchester Church, when Dr. Lush- ington, Mr. Wilde, and others, placed an improper ins- cription on the coffin of her Majesty.— Courier. Rumours have been afloat this morning, that the Blues refused to relieve the Horse Guards, and that a serious misunderstanding prevailed upon tire subject. We have made inquries at the proper Source, and are happy in being enabled to assert, that there? is not so MUCH AS A SHADOW OF FOUNDATION for them. They must have arisen from the accidental circumstance ofthe Life Guards having omitted to relieve the guard at the Horse Guards at the usual hour, under an erroneous supposition that it was to be relieved by the Blues, which last mentioned Regi- ment, owing to its having so many detachments out at the present moment, could not conveniently afford the necessary relief. We have no doubt attempts will be made to pervert this simple circumstance to factious pur- poses ; and we arc, therefore, the more happy in being able to' give this official contradiction to the rumours in question.— Ibid. A hatchment was on Thursday placed in tlie front of the late Queen's house, in South Audley Street. Wednesday the dispatches for Cihna, by the Ship Sca- Jeby Castle, Captain I). R. Newall, were closed at tlie East India House, and delivered to the purser of that ship. Quebec papers have been received to the 6th ult. Ilis Excellency Lord Dalhousie had issued a proclamation, dated Quebec, 28th June, proroguing the meeting ofthe Colonial Parliament from 16th July to the 25th August. THE A RM Y.— The following, we understand, is the new scale of prices of Commissions iu the Army: with a message from - Mr. W. Brittlebank, demanding, that Cuddie should fight him, or make an apology.— Cuddie replied, he'had no apology to make, and would not meet Mr. W. Brittlebank. Spencer carried back this answer, and returned afterwards to Cuddie with a new message, and on the deceased repeating the determina- tion which he had previously announced, he told him that Mr. W. Brittlebank was then in the garden, and remark- ed he might see and speak to him, if he would not fight. Cuddie went into the garden, where he found William Brittlebank, with his brothers Andrew and Francis, who had been seen to go from their house to that of Mr. Cuddie. Here Andrew Brittlebank appeared anxious to prevent the duel, by calling upon Mr. Cuddie to make an apology. This he declined, and pistols were then pro- duced, and Mr. William Brittlebank having walked fif- teen or sixteen yards from the deceased, both turned and fired, as he believed. Mr. Cuddie received the ball fired from the pistol of William Brittlebank ; he was then carried into the kitchen, he believed, by Spencer and Andrew Brittlebank. What followed would be proved by witnesses, and he expected it would be proved that A. Brittlebank had at first denied having been present, but when the deceased stated him to be there, he then said, " Well, since you say so, did I not try to prevent the duel, by pressing you to offer something in the shape of an apology.?" W. Brittlebank had said that the deceased must consider Spencer as his friend, and it would be shewn, that when Cuddie. in a dying state, had been pressed to jjeclare the duel had been a fair one, he de- clined doing so, though awaVe of his situation,- sometimes by expressions, and at others by actions of dissent, such as shaking his head, and certainly died without any such admission. Should the evidence fail to make out the charge, those concerned lor the prosecution would be most happy to hear of a verdict of acquittal. Should the facts be proved, their righteous verdict must be giren, and painful as it might be to themselves, and all who heard it, they would have but one duty to perform. A variety of witnesses were called, who proved the cir- cumstances under which Cuddie lost his life. It appear- ed, that he had received much provocation ; but it ap- f peared that the prisoners had endeavoured to give him every assistance after he. received the wound. The prisoners read written defences, in which they de- clared it to have been their object to prevent the duel, and procure an apology from the deceased. A number of persons of the. highest con side ration, gave them most . excellent characters; and the Judge having summed up with much impartiality and feeling, the Jury retired. After an absence of an hour and twenty minutes, at half- past six they returned a verdict of Not Guilty in favour of'each of the prisoners. Mr. Cuddie was a native of Aberdeen ; and his pre- mature and melancholy end is deeply deplored by his re- latives, and all who knew him. On Sunday ( 12th inst.). three companies of the 66th regiment, under the command of Major Baird, disem- barked at Chatham, from the Camel store ship, from St. Helena : the remainder ofthe regiment is hourly expected ofi board the Abundance store- ship. The Coroner for Middlesex and his Deputy have com- menced two several Inquests upon the bodies of two. un- fortunate persons, who were killed at Cumberland Gate on Tuesday last, which is not yet finished. The foreign mews of the week are not, interesting. The intelligence respecting Russia and Turkey maintains its usual character of a mixture of the warlike and pacific.— The only news of any importance in the Paris papers of Tuesday and Wednesday iscontairied in the followipgarticle from Vienna, dated the 4th inst. : " The Insurgent Chief Jordali still threatens the road to Bessarabia. Near Bucharest two Turkish corps fell to blows about the di- vision of their plunder.' The troops in Wallachia receive daily reinforecements, arid a great army is forming at Bu- charest.

Extract of a Letter from the Agent to Lloyd's at Rot- terdam, dated Aug. 11. • £ rom a declaration of the four men saved from the wre.,;. of the Arinus M. uinus, it appear* that they sailed from Batavia Roads on< tbe29th of January, of this pre sent year; that owing to head winds and tides they had not got through the Straits *> » ' SUnda on the SJd of Febru ary ; and that on that day the ship got on ground in 17 or 18 feet of water, soft ground. After having been on ground for two hours, she floated, and continued tight; on the 4th they anchored oil' the island Cracatoms. and 011 the 5th proceeded again 011 the voyage. On the 7th they had squally weather and strong breezes, running before the wind under double- reefed topsails ; the wind increas- ing to a gale, they handed the fore- top sail and tnizen topsail, and close reefed the main- top sail. They scud- ded under the close reefed main- topsail, fare- sail, and storm- sail, till between nine and 10 o'clock in the even- ing, when it blew so violent as'to blow the sails from the calt- ropes, the sea running tremendously high. About eleven o'clock they shipped a very heavysea, which hove the 2 long- boat and yawl out of the'chocks, and forced them tp leeward, together with a case containing an alli- gator, the ship at that time lying 011 her beam ends, with the leeward shrouds about six feet under water ; the main- top mast went aver the side, and the ship not rising, they cut away the masts about a man's length above the | deck, but 10 110 purpose, she remaining intbesame situa- * lion. Of consequence, a . great deal of water forced its way to the hold, when all the soldiers, and such of the crew as could be spared from the deck, were ordered to attend the pumps, but this- measure proved in vain also; about midnight the ship went down suddenly head fore- most. •' It is. supposed that there were about 170 persons on board the Arinus Marin us, viz. 80 of the crew, 40 pas- sengers, and 50 soldiers, who were returning to Holland, ,() n Thursday the Eden, 26, Capt.

CUPAR FIFE, Aug. 8.— Our fair yesterday was very ill supplied with all kinds of cattle, but what were in the market had a remarkably dull sale, and at prices greatly reduced. There were few horses of any descrip- tion, and even these were wholly unsaleable. Indeed we have never seen a duller market at this place. At St. James's Fair, 011 Montlay last, there wasa mid- dling show of cattle, which met with dull sale. A11 in- different show of horses, and little demand. There were a great number of shearers in the fair, many of whom went away unhired ; wages from 3s. to 3s. 6d. per week lower than last year.—- There was a tolerable show of linen cloth; fine linen sold at much the same prices as at St. Boswell's Fair, but there was little demand for it ; the pri- ces of coarse cloth were rather better, and it was almost all sold off. DERBY ASSIZES. FATAL DUEL. DERBY, Aug. 14.— The important trial of the Brittlebanks caine 011 this morning. The Court as- sembled at eight o'clock. The case having been opened, Mr. Denman said, it was his painful duty to state, as shortly and as simply as he could, the circumstances of the case : — ' The prisoners were to be tried for a crime that was considered one of the heaviest of which human na- ture was capable. A murder was charged to have been committed by Mr. W. Brittlebank, and the prisoners stood on their trial for aiding, abetting, and assisting in the said murder. The deceased, Mr. Cuddie. had been a surgeon in the navy; he had retired on half- pay. and re ided at Winster, in that county, where Mr. Brittlebank, the father of two of the prisoners, resided. Mr. Cuddie had been on intimate terms with the Brittlebanks, but their friendship had fallen off in consequence of the atten- tions of the deceased to Miss Brittlehauk, which certain- ly had been disapproved by the members of her family.— On the 21 st of May, the day before the death of Mr. Cuddie, a letter was brought to him by the servant of Air. W. Brittlebank, complaining of an insult which he said he had received, and calling 011 the deceased to light him, in order to expiate that insult. Mr. Cuddie refused to give any answer to the letter. In consequence of this, 011 the following day, the prisoner Spencer, who had been sent for from Bakewell, arrived at Winster, and agreed to go Muchals, Tryst, 1st Tuesday.

EDINBURGH, Aug. 21. On Tuesday last, a small field of ripe barley was cut down at Hopetoun House. A good crop. A field of barley, in good condition, was rut down on Monday last, on a farm 011 the Raploch road, belonging to the estate of Colonel Callander, of Craigforth. Oifthe following day, a field was cut down on the farm of Burn- bank, occupied by Mr. Ord, on the estate of Blairdrum- inond. The barley was perfectly ripe, and proved to be a very good crop. ' The Brilliant steam yacht, intended, for the trade be- twixt Leiih and Invernss, arrived at Leith on Tuesday from Grenock, which she teflon the preceding Thursday, having proved herself during the severe gale on that and following day. to be admirably adapted for the most expos- ed tracks of navigation, and is, perhaps, the first vessel that ever got through the Pentium) Frith, and round Dungsby Head, against the full force of a stream tiJea'nrf strong contrary wind. The Brilliant performed the dis- tance betwext Kyleak in Skye and Cape Wrath in 11 hours, and betwixt Aberdeen and Leith in 10 hours. On Thursday 6th inst. the Rev. Mr. John Anderson was ordained to the church and parish ofDunbarney, pres- bytery of Perth. The Rev. Mr. iM'Lagan of Kinfauns preached and presided on the occasion. On Saturday morning the 4th inst. the mate, alomr with a boat's crew of the Earl Moira Revenue Cutter' when proceeding to search a smuggling lugger, then lying off Whalsey Island, on the coa*. t of Shetland, were violently deforced and resisted by the smugglers, who kept up a heavy fire of musketry upon them, by which one seaman was killed, and two severely wounded. ' The Commissioners of Excise, for the purpose of discovering the perpetrators of this outrage and murder, have offered a reward of a hundred pounds to any person who shall give such information. The activity of the authorities in Dundee in the course of last week, made an old woman speak after sixteen years silence. She told •• dumb fortunes" ( a commodity not within the jurisdiction of the guildrv, it should seem eith er for price of freedom," or for booth upset,) and in this way picked up a living by pleasing female credulity \ She was committed on a Justice of Peace warrant j'and after twenty four hours fasting and obstinacy, she was fain to exclaim—' Oh.

AS the details we had received concerning the occurrences that took place, upon the removal of her Majesty's remains from Brandeiibnrgh House on their vvav to Harwich, were incomplete at the date of otir last publication, and it was still uncertain, whether the procession had been allowed to pass peaceably through the city, we took no notice of the procession, until we could give a complete ac- count of particulars. Such tin account our readers will find in our preceding columns, and will form their own opinions of the conduct of men in power, who, to prevent the people from paying the last tribute ofrepect to the remains of our lamented anil much injured Queen, endangered the peace of the Metro- polis, and occasioned that wanton and nnnecessarv bloodshed, which has since been tile subject of judi- cial investigation. It was the intention of the Lord Mayor and Corporation to meet the funeral proces- sion at Temple Bar, and form part of it through the city— but Lord LIVERPOOL had resolved, that no opportunity should be afforded the metropolis of ma- nifesting attachment to the memory of the Queen— and, contrary to the will of her executors, the body was hurried otff'rcm Brandenburgh House, and par- ticular orders issued, that bv a circuitous rout the city should be altogether avoided. The rout in- tended to be taken our readers wi'l see was stu- diously concealed, so t!.; it even when the procession i move'd the people were kept in uncertainty, although | it. subsequently became known, that it was Ordered ' to proceed bv the New Road. This insult, 0 tie fed to the Magistracy and People of the ( ifst Citv of the Empire, naturally produced rcsentrnent, and such opposition was made by the people that, although the troops were frequently reinforced, it became ne- cessary for those who commanded them to concede the point, and allow the procession to proceed to- wards Temple Bar. Whether the troops ( with the exception of the guard of honour, the Oxford Blues) were denied admission by the Lord Mavor at Temple Bar, or were previously drawn off, we do not find exactly stated ; but the conduct of the Life Guards is Said to have excited much indignation, while that of the Oxford Blues was highly approv- ed. It is perhaps needless to inquire, by what right Lord LIVERPOOL issued his despotical order* to hurry away her Majesty's remains, against the will of her executors and household, or prescribe the rout which svas intentionally to disappoint the city of London, and - endanger the public peace? It would appear that Government in this most extra- ordinary case, assumed the power of treating her Majesty as Queen of England or a private person, not according to any known law or principle ot equi- • tv, but just according to pleasure. She was arraign- ed as Queen, and her accusers expressly declared, ? that, unless she should be found guilty, she should i be forthwith restored to all the rights, dignities, and privileges of a Queen Consort of these realms.-—• W hen she could not be fonml guilty, when her ac- cusers, after having the meanness to canvass for votes against her, had to eat up their own filth and abandon their proceedings, she was not restored to her rights— her name was not restored to the Li- turgy— and an infamous and venal press was employ- ed to stigmatize and calumniate such of the Nobili- ty ; uid Gentry as visited her. Upon the meeting of of Parliament she was again recognized, in the Speech from the Throne, as her Majesty the Queen, and it was proposed to Parliament to make a suit- able provision for her. It is true, that this provi- sion was limited to one- half of what was allowed to the late Queen CHARLOTTE,, in direct opposition to reason and justice, for Queen CHARLOTTE had merely a nominal separate establishment toinaititain ; but still, the provision was expressly made for the Queen of Great Britain, in which character she had just as good a right to he recognized as his Majesty lias to be acknowledged as Sovereign In the mean time the slanderers of her Majesty were sure of high Patronage ; and as, according to the funda- mental principle upon which all laws proceed, that interest will induce men to utter falsehood and con- ceal the truth, that Patronage could not fail to pro- duce its natural effects. The defeat of her Majes- ty's accusers— the infamy of the witnesses produc- ed against her— and the palpable fact, that they had been suliorned to swear falsely— these facts, sufficient to produce indefeasible conviction in the minds of the candid and unprejudiced, were allowed no weight by the determined defamers of her Majesty's character. Wlien, in answer to : their assertions, that the witnesses against her • Majesty had not been guilty, of perjury, the evidence was appealed to, and the grossest contradictions and inconsistencies pointed out — when the alledged facts were pointedly disproved and believed to lie aban- doned— yetno conviction followed, but a sweeping assumption was resorted to—" Ah I w here so much had been said something must be true ;" and their logic seemed to lead to this conclusion, that because for more than twenty years Court influence had been at work, and bv means not the most reputable, to injure the character of this nobles minded woman, and every succeeding effort had failed, sinking her accusers deeper and deeper in infamy— therefore, she must necessarily be guilty. Such, however, has not been the reasoning of the British people, upon conclusive evidence they are satisfied of her inno- cence ; satisfied also, that she was in mind, in ac- complishments, and every estimable trait of cha- racter, far superior to the females w ho have for many years been in favour at the British Court. Never, in our times, did the noble spirit of Englishmen appear to such advantage as in the ease of this illustrious victim of malignant persecution. The fact is now ascertained, that last vcar Earl GREY was offered a carte blanche to make up an Administration accord • ing to his own wishes, with the sole proviso, that lie should go on with the proceedings then in con- templation against the Queen— a condition which, much to bis honour, he promptly rejected. The Premier Nobles of the three kingdoms were her attached friends ; and although a majority of Peers, as Lord HOLLAND expressed it, allowed themselves to be dragged through the dirt in support of false and infamous charges, the character of the British Nobility was nobly snpjiorted by others, who judged for themselves, uninfluenced bv fear, favour, or affection. The details of the funeral procession, and embarkation of the Royal n mains at Harwich, shew the feelings of Englishmen upon this occasion ; and the mourning in London, although not ordered in the usual manner, has been as general as it was for the Princess CHARLOTTE. The grief of the public is. however, mingled with bitter and loudly expressed indignation at the proceedings which occasioned or accelerated the death of her Majesty; and there is 110 doubt of die tact, although it is denied by the Courier, that a serious difference has taken place between the Life Guards and the Blues, who so conducted themselves upon the removal of the Roval Body from Brandenburgh House, as to re- ceive every mark of kindness and unqualified'applause from the assembled people. The following extract is from the ' Traveller of the 20th : The following statement of the origin of the reports, ill relation to the Life Guards and Blues, appeared in our Second Edition of Saturday. The Courier denies that, there was any foundation for such reports, and people of the due proportion of faith will, of course, believe the Courier. We have no feeling in these cases, but to state facts ; and we believe that it will soon be found that one of these regiments will be quartered at a due distance from the other : — In consequence of the extraordinary rumour at the Horse Guards, we immediately dispatched a person to the Barracks in the Regent's Park, where the regiment of Blues are quartered. On his arrival there, Sir Robert Hjll ( the brother of Lord Ilili). the Colonel Command- ing the Detachment, left 011 horseback for town. The following is the result of our inquiries. The Life Guards and the ISIues received orders to do three days duly each. The Blues did the first day's duty at the Horse Guards on Wednesday ; the Life Guards did duty ou Thursday and Friday. The Blues received orders to at- tend the Queen's funeral procession, which was reckoned as t vodays duty, making in the whole their three days. The Guards having had heavy duty to perform lately, expected to have been relieved this morning by the Blues. A11 order had been issued for a detachment of the Blues to relieve the Life Guards this day ; but they were so fati- gued that the") could not do the duty ; atid. we understand that the order was issued by mistake, and that the Blues did not refuse to do duty with the Life Guards. The Blues are, however, much incensed at the Life Guards for their improper conduct towards them, and might have relieved them as an act of courtesy, if iheyjiad.. not coin-, mitred such an outrage upon the feelings of the- Regiment of Blues. After the Blues were relieved by the- Life Guards on Wednesday, at the Horse Guards, the latter Wrote against the walls of the guard rooms a variety of matter offensive to the feelings of the Blues, in consequence of their not drawing a sword or firing upon the jiopnlace on the day of the Queen's Funeral Procession. The words were — Cowardly Blues— The Blues iViust go to Windsor — Country Quarters and Fire- side for Blues— Bloodless Blues, & e— The Colonel of the Blues, Sir Robert Hill, hearing of the attack upon his Regiment, opened a communication with the Officer of tlie Life Guards on the subject, and it was found that the obnoxious master was suffered to remain on the walls for'soine time after it was seen by the Non- commissioned Officers. Sir Robert Hill went to the Horse Guards, and compelled the Non- com- missioned Officers to get water and a mop. and' wipe out the attack upon the Regiment which he had the honour to command. So then these rivals of the Manchester Yeomanry dare to insult the Blues, because they would not charge and tire upon Englishmen assembled to mani- fest respect and attachment to their departed Queen. This is a serious affair indeed, and no person can fie surprized, that the Life Guards have excited the greatest indignation by their conduct. ROYAL VISIT TO IRELAND. The accounts of this visit, which we have seen in the Irish papers, arc so marvellous, exhibiting traits of the Irish character so unlike what it oncc bore, that we could wish to doubt, whether the countrymen of C- UR ft AN and MOORE have really conducted themselves in the manner described.— That his Majesty would lie received with every mark of respect and loyalty bv the Irish people none could doubt ; but after the multiplied wrongs, in- sults, and oppressions, they have experienced, we did not anticipate their silence upon these subjects, nor an exultation approaching to downright insanity, merely because his Majesty had arrived among them. Had his Majesty declared the object of his journey to be a fair inquiry into the state of his subjects in Ireland, for the purpose of affording them what re- lief might he in his power ; s. nd had these subjects, while tliev expressed their loyalty and joy, at the same time respectfully, but firmly, stated their grievances, many of which are attributable to his Majesty's advisers the conduct of parties would have been consistent. The Corporation of Dublin is known to lie as servile as any Rotten Borough of Scotland : but the conduct of the Catholics, loyal and good subjects as they are, and excluded from tlie rights of free citizens, is surely inconsistent.— The grievances they have complained of are real, or the) r are not. If real, why abstain from stating them to nis Majesty in person ? If they are not, let us hear no more of their cause. It was said last year, that the Catholics, and indeed the Irish people, were advised to stand aloof and take no interest in the proceedings against her Majesty, in hopes of receiving some important favours for their good be- haviour, and succeeding events render the report not improbable. The policy will no doubt meet with all the success it deserves. It appears certain, that in Ireland his Majesty can appear without being sur- rounded by military force, and that he has declared none is wanted. A guard of honour is proposed to be formed of the citizens of Dublin, who assure the world in rather aukward terms, but that is nothing, that he has as many defenders as Irish subjects. His Majesty fortunately wants no defenders in the com- mon acceptation of the word, lie has it seems at IcnjTth faund c-'. it that people under l is rule, - ho can duly appreciate the nleyits of a Prince ; v\ ho make an inquiries, sav nothing that possibly can give offence, and offer' adulation as pure and miinixed as any one of the Caisars could desire. These Irishmen take it for granted, that the English nation has al- together misunderstood the character of its Sove- reign, and has not the slightest reason for remon- strance or dissatisfaction. In such a state of public feeling, who shall wonder, thatthe Lord CASTLE- REAGH of 1798 has again ventured to appear publicly in the streets of Dublin, and been received with acclamations and loud applause ? Our limits do not admit of any lengthened com- ments on the foreign news of the day. At Vienna, we understand, that hostilities between Russia and Turkey are deemed inevitable ; but that, in the mean time, Russia has offered an ultimatum, in which the passage of the Dardanelles is expresslv stipulated for as a sine qua 71011. It is supposed, that in preparation for hostilities the Courts of Petersburg!! and Vienna act in concert— that it is proposed to introduce a strong armament into the Mediterranean, and the patriotic. Spaniards can no longer doubt ofits object. They have FERDINAND upon their throne, and MORILLO in chief command of the armies, the influence of the priesthood is st- li allowed to be very considerable ; and knowing these tacts, the Patriots must be aware of their danger. time having elapsed before he could lie brought up from the bottom. A medical Gentleman, who promptly attended on hearing of the accident, found his endeavours to restore animation unavailing, life being extinct. THE FIRST ABERDEEN EXHIBITION Opens on Monday, and having had an opportunity of seeing a considerable number of Pictures and Drawings, both of living Artists, and Ancient Masters, we may ton, fideotly say, that the Public are not likely to ho disap- pointed. Several Artists at a distau. e have sent Picture* and Drawings, and none have . manifested more zeal and industry 011 the occasion, than our ingenious Townsman, Mr. ROBEHTSON of London. Of his. own original produc- tions there are many beautiful specimens, as well as ori- ginals and copies by his pupils. His original Gip ey, Mother and Child, ( and of which we are pleated ( 0 UNI that a Print is to be published) is a fine representa'j. n) of simple nature, expressed in the most appropriate manner. Indeed, the various production* sent fram different quar- ters, by Artists and Amateurs, are much more ample than we could have had any reason to expect— and the Pictures and Drawings of Artists of Aberdeen, shew an ardour to forward this commendable undertaking very creditable to themselves. The infirm state of Mr. EWEN'S health, it seems, obliged him to decline the honour intended hitn as ao ostensible Member of the Committee— but Lis contri- bution of Pictures, from bis own collection, manifestly shew, that lie can neither be indifferent, or totally inac- tive, in an undertaking calculated ( o promote and diffuse a tas'e for the Arts. To render the delightful ait of Drawing an essemial branch of education, is to commu- nicate a most important benefit to the youth of the present generation— and to provide for them a sourcy of what cannot fail to unite constant pleasure, attended with in- calculable advantage. An opportunity will be afforded to the generous and benevolent part of this City, upon S. ibbath first, at 6 o'clock in the Evening, at which time a SERMON wiil be preached, in ihe West Church, bythe Rev. ANDREW TAWSE. when a Collection will be then made for Behoof of the SICK MAN'S FRIEND, whose Funds, we are sorry to say, were found to be entirely expended, and the Treasurer in advance, tile 61I1 of Juiy t since which, the Objects have received no supply. We therefore trust, that as this Institution depends entirely tipou the liberalit .- of charitable individuals, and a generous public, it wd , upon Sabbath evening fust, meet with its usual count. n- ance and support. We understand, that the New Chape! in Bl. ickfiiars Street, which has been built and fitted up in a neat and comfortable manner, for the nrcommodetion of the in- creased population of this city, will be Opened flir divine worshiped Sabbath first, when ColleclioiiswiU bemadednr- ing the whole day, for the liquidation of the debt on the Building.

Rona, The William, I. aird, sailed from Pictou before these vessels ; and the Latona. Morison. was expected to be ready for sea at Shediach in a few days after the Good ntent. The Dee, Craig, with 4 fi h ; and the Jane, Bruce, with G fish. 110 tuns, have arrived from Greenland, but bring 110 fresh accounts of the fishing. Oil the 17th of July, a large whale, which had been immediately before harpooned, struck one of the loats of the Jane, and in consequence, we are so- rv to relate, that of the crew two were killed, and one drowned. ' Hie John, Jackson, of Greenock, is arrived there with 12 fish ; left Greenland on the 8t! i ii. st. with ilie Henrietta, of this place, having 9 fi h.

The Paris Papers of Friday arrived this m. ruing. The question of peace or war between Turkey and " Russia appears to be approaching a crisis. The intelligence. howeVer. 011 the subject in the Paris Papers is of the same indecisive character as that io the German Journals.

We are in daily expectation of iiearhi" uf the march of the Russian army. New York Papers have arrived to the I Sib ult. Thev State that die wh. de of Mexico, with the exception of Vera Cruz, had deflated in favour of the Patriots. A packet from the Leeward Islands l. a, arrived with letters of ihe 8th of July from St. Thomas's. They state that Carraceas has again fallen into the bands of the Pa. triois who entered the city on 1 be 20th of June.
