A great proportion of the Land is of the finest quality, and adapted to the successful cultivation of every kind of grain and green crop. It abounds witl> c. dcarfeous sand, which, as a stimulant, has been found so highly Valuable and in point of situation, its advantages are very rare, having the Fishing Village of Collieston near the centre of the Eslate, and, immediately at the south west boundary, the Shipping Port of Newburgh, which allbrds a ready outlet for the produce, and an easy supply of Lime, Coal, and other necessaries. The Property is fourteen miles distant from Aberdeen, and ten from Peterhead ; so that it not only possesses, within itself, the convenience of an an excellent Fish- market, and exhaustless manure, but lies also within a single stage of the best grain markets, and most considerable sea- ports upon the east coast. The Houses and Farm Steadings being all the property of ihe Heritor, the new tenants will have to receive them, upon dead inventory, without any payment in the way of melioration ; and, as the outgoing tenants are hound, by the existing conditions of lease, to leave one- third part of the arable land in grass, three years old, and a proportion of the remainder in grass two, and one year old, the entry must be peculiarly favourable. The different Farms, and their present boundaries, will be pointed out by Alexander Fetch at Cothill Ground Officer on the Estate; and the Regulations as to cropping, and other particulars, may be learned by apply- ing to Duncan Davidson, Advocate in Aberdeen, to whom offers may be addressed till the last day of October next, when the new Setting will take place at Collieston. Of- fers not accepted will be concealed, if desired. Kf.

OF MON REPOS, 7 August 29, 1821. 5 BURGII OF INVERURY. lowing Excerpt from the Report of the Select Core- niitte of the House of Commons on Scotch Burghs : " The House having referred to the Committee, in the course of the present Session, a'Petition frotn the Bur- gesses of Inverury, complaining y gross mismanagement of the funds of that Burgh, ami staling, that the Couit of Session in Scotland haddecided t! i itthey had no competent title to maintain an action against the Magistrates for their alleged misconduct, Your Committee have Qousidered ii t,> be their duty to make a particular inquiry into this caje, which affords a strong illustration of the defective state of the law of Scotland, with regard to affording the means of controlling the expenditure of the funds of the Royal Burghs. " It appears from the evidence of tin; several witnesses who were esamined, that the accounts of ibo bi. rgii of {. r, verury were kept in a very irregular and incorrect niani^ r, ftom iiieyear 1804 to the year 181 7, when, in Consequence of the general feeling of discontent that was excited by the improvident expenditure of the property of the Burgh, mi action Was commenced against the Magistrates. This action was brought to a termination teaily in December last, when the complaint was dismissed, and the com- plainers found liable in costs ; the Court having found that the complainers were not entitled to maintain any action of this nature against the Magistrates, however culpable and negligent their management ofthe property of the Burgh might have been. " Your Committee beg leave in particular to refer to the evidence of Mr. George Lyon, who was the chief resident magistrate in Inverury from 1804 to 1817. He has stated that several small sums received by him on account ofthe Burgh during that period, amounting in all to HOI. have never been carried to the credit of the Burgh, and thai ha is still indebted to the Burgh for that snro. He admit- ted that a very considerable expense was annually incurred for entertainments in his house, and that he had never made up any accounts of these exnences till the ac- counts were called for by the Burgesses in 1817. The cost of these entertainments amounted to almost 6001.' being on an average about 501. annually, which is nearly- equal to the whole revenue of the Burgh. . , " There appears in the accounts ofthe Burgh a variety of charges which, in the opinion of the Committee, ought nut t « have been made upon the Burgh funds, particularly a charge of 841. 9s. Sd. to pay the expenses incurred by George Lyon, in an ittion brought against him for having celebrated irregular marriages. " Your Committee, however, are happy to be able to state that since 1817, the accounts have been much more . regular, and that none of these charges to which they- have referred appear in the accounts since that date. They are now audited regularly ; and the improvements which have been introduced, in consequence of the publicity which has beeB given to the accduiit » , afford a strong confirma- tion of the opinions already expressed by the Committee, that. the grievances of which the Petitioners have com plained may be redressed by some legislative measure, calculated to give publicity to the pecuniary transactions ofthe Magistrates, and to afford to tlie Burgesses an effec- tive control over the expenditureof the . Burghs.",- . . OUR readers will recollect that, in the end of last year, we noticed the Decision of the Court of Session in an action raised by the Burgesses of In- verury against the Magistrates of that Burgh, for misa| » p! ication, mismanagement, and waste of the Funds tinder their charge— a decision by which the action was dismissed, and the Burgesses foutul liable in costs to the Magistrates, on the ground of the former having no patrimonial interest in the Funds ofthe Burgh to entitle them to pursue, and of the Court being incompetent. The defec- tive state of the law in this respect, whereby the Burgesses could not be allowed to prove their com- plaint, the truth of their allegations, and the hard- ship of their case, will be beat explained by the fui- CATTLE SHEW.

Custody, and ordered handcuffs lo he put upon bun. — The constable not being very expert at the business, the defendant took the handcuffs and piit them 011 the plain- till'himself; and being fastened to a person of the name of Wheeler, was in that state, dragged to the defendant's rectory at Meesden, about two miles distant. At this time the plaintiff was utterly ignorant of the offence for which he was so treated, lie was however sent, to the rectoiy and there confined until the defendant's arrival, about two hours after. The defendant bad taken the key of the handcuffs with him. and iu the mean time went about the neighbourhood boasting that he had got the plaintiff in handcuffs. In this ignominious state the plaintiff was kept an hour at the defendant's house, before he could be freed. His wristsbehig swollen with pain, arising from the handcuffs being too small, be asked for a little oil at the rectory, but the Servants refused to let him have any, saying, that it was as much as their places were worth to comply. When the defendant arrived he ordered the handcuffs to be taken off", and then, without any inquiry, or information 011 oath, he ordered the plaintiff'to pay a fine of 5s. and 10 find two sureties to be of good behaviour ; and in default thereof, threatened to send him to the county jail. The plaintiff", conscious of his innocence, indignantly refused to pay the money or find the sureties, until he knew w hat offence he had committed. The de- fendant, however, declined informing him with what lie was charged, and at length, after four hours' confinement; and after consulting the constable ( who seemed to be a bet- ter lawyer than the Magistrate himself), what he ought to do, he consented to discharge the plaintiff. This was a mere outline of ihe ea- e. The plaintiff was even yet ig- norant of the supposed offence for which he had been so unjustly and tyranicallv treated. The Learned Counsel supposed it would be said, that the plaintiff had been tip- our licneficc;! dignitaries to lie regarded as usurpers of their possessions ; that, deprives them of all pastoral influence and respect ; that, in Short, has left them no support or prop in the attachment or Veneration of the people.

INQUESTS on the BODIES of the PERSONS SLAIN at the QUEEN'S FUNERAL. On Wednesday afternoon, old Mr. Stilling, the Co- roner. and a Jury of fifteen householders, attended at the General Townshetid, public- house, in Oxford Street, to bold an inquest on the body of Richard Honey, who was shot 011 Tuesday by an officer of the life Guards, near Cumberland- gate, at the time the funeral procession of the late Queen was passing. For the sake of a larger room, the inquest was adjourned to the New Inn, Edg- ware road, where proceedings commenced at three o'clock. Mr. Alderman Waitlunan, the High Sheriff of Middle- sex ( who had been collecting evidence w- ilh the most laud- able activity) was present, and took an active part in The Duke of Bedford and a party are also arrived in the Highlands for the shooting season. The rev. Colin fraser, missionary preacher at Fort Augustus, who has been recently presented by the family of Lovat to the living of the parish cf Kiltarlity, was to have preached in the parish church on Sunday week, lint was obstructed by some of the parishioners, who had' the night before shut up the doors and windows of the church by'holdfasis and additional locks, thereby to prevent the possibility of getting admittance. Mr. Fraser, however, preached in ihe open air, notwithstanding many attempts that were made to interrupt him. LYBSTER, Aug- 14.— The herring fishing on the coast of Caithness ha " not been so productive as last season, but Ihe quality of those caught is very superior; this is particularly remarked on the coast between Clvthness and the Ord. The herrings brought in this morning by the fishermen of Burragill ( a new and promising station, near Forse Castle) are uncommonly rich, and exactly of that description caught 011 the west coast. Some herrings have him. Let Subscriptions be opened in Aberdeen— and I am persuaded, the other Burghs politically annexed to it will join in the- measure, for the purpose of purchasing a Piece of Plate to he presented lo MR.

And, as is usual in England on similar occasions, that all classes might have an opportunity of shewing their. regard for him let the amount of iacb be restricted to a Shilling or Haif- a- Crown. I have no doubt that many of your Correspondents, Sir, will follow in recommending this measure. The design is not original on my part, the same having been propos- ed and approved of by several^, before I bad an oppor- tunity of tieing informed ofit. I am proud, however, in being the first to give putt! icily to it, through the medium of your excellent and widely ciiculated Journal. Z.

I lie had been taken up without a warrant, condemned without a hearing, and igtiomiiuou- ly j unished for no ; crime. Under such circumstances, it was for the Jury to say, what damages a respectable farmer, so treated, was entitled to receive at the h inds even of a Special Jury, composed of some of the Magistracy of the county. In the outset of the case, he should not apply those epithets to the defendant's conduct, which the circumstances of tin. 1 case would seem to warrant; but he would venture to say, that never was there more ignorance or cruelty evinc- ed by a Magistrate in these dominions, in the administra- tion of the King's commission, under the colour of autho- rity. Several witnesses were then examined in support of the statement made by the Learned Counsel; after which. Mr Walford addressed the Jury on behalf of the de- fendant, and opened a case of justification, on the ground — first, that the plaintiff, was a tippler; and second, lllat he bad been guilty of such contemptuous demeanour tow ards the defendant in the discharge of his magisterial du- ties, as would warrant him in the conduct he had pursued. He referred to Burn's Justice, Hawkins' Pleas of the Crown, and Blackstone's Commentaries, in support of the latter proposition. Evidence was then adduced for the defendant, and Mr. Marryatt made an able reply. Mr. Baron Wood then charged the Jury, that the de- fendant had certainly outstepped the limits of his authori- ty. First, there was 110 pretence for handcuffing the plaintiff: second, he had no authority for punishing the plaintiff'in the way complained of as a tippler-; for sup- posing it to be proved tiiat the plaintiff' was a tippler, lie could only have fined him 3s. 4d. ; and, in default of pay- ing that fine, he could have butsethimin thestocks for four hours. Probably the excess of authority arose mere- ly from ignorance, and without any malicious motives.— Tlie plaintiff, however, was entitled to some damages for the injury he had sustained.

He was commissioned, it is understood, by the relatives of the deceased to act ' or them. The first six witnesses proved the general facts of the death of Richard Honey, his situation at the time, and and the state of the people and military. From their tes- timony it appeared, that the deceased wasstanding ill Ox- ford Street, between Cumberland and Old Quelle Streets, when he was shot through the heart by a ball; that be was forthwith carried into Mr. Lightfoot the surgeon's, and expired on the counter after breathing four times ; — that the deceased and those idiout him were quite peace- aide ; that the soldiers were galloping about at the time, and that firing was going 011 at. the Park- gates ; but that the main body of the soldiers were at the moment near Tyburn- turnpike, a considerable distance from the deceased. With regard to the question, whe- ther the people threw stones or the soldiers fired fir . t, these witnesses naturally gave different accounts according lo their impressions at the moment of terror and contusion. It appeared sufficiently clear, however, that the gates 1 found their verdict for the plaintiff— Da na ,' s £ 50 ! ! Our readers can form 110 proper idea of the adula- tion with which the Irish Papers are now filled.— The flattery and eulogies which the pensioned acade- micians of Loi'IS XIV. lavished on the object of their venal idolatry, was rational and chaste com- pared with that with which the Irish writers and orators are bespattering a constitutional Monarch. His Majesty's tour is, to all intents and purposes, a pleasure tour. A Monarch travelling under a strict incognito,"^ nd who should associate with all classes of his subjects— who should dine on the butter- milk and potatoes of the peasant, as well as on the turtle- soup of the Peer— might acqu re a knowledge of their real c ndition ; but it would be worse than ab- surd to expect that such knowledge can possibly be obtained 1 v a Monarch travelling with a magnificent equipage, and surrounded exclusively bv the noble and the wealthy. A compromise has been made between the Protestants aad the Catholics, and the question of Emancipation is not to be mooted dur- ing his Majesty's stay in Ireland. So far all is well: But because the one party have agreed to postpone were first forced by a charge of the soldiers, then closed again bv tlie people, and then again forced by the military, who struck with their swords at the hands which held the iron gates. This conduct, ami the riding to and fro. brand siting their sabres, excittd great hootings, shouts of ' shame!" and cries of" They're cutting down ihe peo- ple." Tneri came showers of stones and brickbats ( the Park wall was partly pulled down to furnish the latter) and the firing of pi , tols and carbines. The shots were not in rounds, and on a plan, as if ordered— but here and thereat random by the individual guardsmen. The Life Guards al one fired, the Oxford Blues taking no part.— Hie wi-. nesaes all stated the number of shots at different numbers between 20 to 40.

SIR, HER Majesty the Queen is now at rest, from the many bufferings of a vile faction, against which she so long and honourably struggled. Nothing could more strongly mark the innocency of her Majesty, of the crimes alledged against her, than that hun blebut confident hope, which she evinced during her illness, of being fully ac- quitted before that impartial Judge, at whose tribunal no influence can avail, over which no power can have any controul. What but the consciousness of her Majesty's innocence could have inspired her with such fortitude in her last moments ? What ? but a deep sense of religion in the heart made her Majesty, in the hour of dissolution, " forgive her enemies, and pray for them that had des- pitefully used and persecuted her ?" But ' Tis innocence that streaks our morning bright, ' Tis this that gilds the horrors of our night. When wealth forsakes us, and when friends are few ; When friends are faithless, or when foes pursue ; ' Tis this that, wards the blow, or stills the smart, Disarms affliction or repels his dart ; Within the breast bids purest raptures rise. Bids smiling conscience spread her cloudless skies.. Birse, Aug. 16, 1821. Z. MISCELLAiVEO US. HERTFORD ASSIZES, August 5. MORRIS V. GAUSS EN, Clerk. This was an action against the Rev. Armitage Gaussen, rector of the parish of Meesden, near Buntingford, a Magistrate of the county, for causing the plaintiff a most respectable fanner of Anstey, to be apprehended without any reasonable or probable cause, and conveyed in iron manacles and handcuffs to the defendant's house, and for unlawfully imprisoning him for the space of four hours.—- The defendant pleaded the genera! issue— Not Guilty. LETTER III. JOSEPH HUME, ESQ. M P. For the ABERDEEN DiSTrICT of BURGhS. To the EDITOR of th* ABERDEEN CHRONICLE. SIR, " WHEN I commenced this series of letters, it was mY intention to follow them out with showing how, by a re- moval of the exorbitant duties on salt, sugar, malt, soap. & c\ the sale of these a) tides might be enlarged, and how great tfiebenefits are which would accrueto the community from this extended sale. Several contingent circumstan- ces, however, since that time, have conspired to prevent my bestowing such attention on the subject as it Would ne cessarily require, a'nd I am therefore obliged to close my present* correspondence, without entering into these de- tails. _ I prefaced my first communication, Sir, with some their ciaim to participate in all the privileges of the constitution for a month or six weeks, and the other party to intermit their Processions, and not to boast of their monopoly for the same period, their orators have taken it into their heads to tell us, that their distentions are for ever at rent, and that his Majesty's approach " has already done one great good— It has extinguished those unfortunate and unnatural feuds which have been long the source of national degrada- tion and misery." ' i he good sense of the King wiil not certainly permit him to be deceived by such stupid and absurd adulation Whatever Mr. O'Conncland Alderman Archer may think, it is not bv sending a hundred cooks to Dublin Castle, and by making that citv a scene of exhiliration and expence, that the least of the grievances under which Ireland has long suffered will ever be removed. Will the festivities in Dublin lessen the odious and oppressive burden of tithes ? will they soften the extreme rigour and severity of the revenue laws ? will they diffuse the blessings of education ? will they raise the wages of labour ? or will they generate a taste for the enjoy- ments, the luxuries, and the comforts of civilized life among the impoverished peasantry ofthe country? Every man of sense knows, that the royal visit can do none of these things, and that until they shall have been done, Ireland must remain, what site has ever been— a poor, miserable, and distracted coun- try."—-$< y{> ir- iaih Coroner.— When the soldiers cut against the gates which were clcsed, do you know that they out any body ?— No. Juryman.— Nor do you know that the stones which were thrown hurt any ofthe soldiers?— No. Mr. Waithman.— Might individuals be cut without your perceiving it ?— Yes. Bartholomew Crawley, of Seven Dials, tailor, came with the funeral from Kensington. Sir Robert Baker rode at the head of the procession, which passed Hyde- park corner, and was going down Piccadilly. An officer rode up to Sir Robert B iker, and would have him turn back again with the hearse. Sir Robert was forgoing on straight a. head down Piccadilly, and said he would take it on himself. The officer whispered to his orderly man, who galloped off, and the hearse was turned round to- wards the Park- gate, where it entered. On proceeding through the Park with the procession to Cumborlane- gate, the Piccadilly butchers were there drawn across the road. Coroner.— Who are they ? Witness.— The Life Guards, I can call them nothing else than Piccadilly butchers. The mob hissed. A sol- dier made his horse p'unge. The mob hissed again. An officer then took a pistol out of his holster and let fly. There were no stones thrown at this lime. A man who wore a blue coat and corduroy trowsers fell : not having seen tlie deceased, cannot say whether it was lie who was So far as we have been able to judge from the ac- counts in the public papers, a mark of respect to her late Majesty has been almost universally paid through- out the kingdom, when the painful tidings of her dccease was received, by tolling the bells ofthe ca- thedrals and churches. But there is one exception to this very creditable fact, which demands especial notice. In thisepiscopalcity, containing six churches, independently ofthe Cathedral, not a single bell an- nounced the departure ofthe magnanimous spirit of the most injured of Queens— the most persecuted of' women. Thus the brutal enmity of those who em bittered her moral existence pursues her in hershroud. We know not whether actual orders were issued to nrevent tins customary sign of mourning ; but the shot at the time. When the pistol was fired, the mob launched stones. The officer was a thin man with a Wa- terloo medal, and the shot from his pistol was the first that was fired. When the stones were thrown the soldiers trotted up the road and fired away. I believe I could know the officer, who fired if I saw him. If the whqle troop were brought out, I would pick him out. Coroner.— Waterloo medals are worn probably by one half of Ihe regiment. Witness.— No matter for that. I could put my hand on him. The officer took aim directly before him towards the place where the man fell. I heard no hissing from til a t spot. William Thomson, upholsterer, James Street, Ken- sington, followed the procession from Hammersmith. The witness came up Park lane into Oxford Street He there saw a pistol was fired, and a man fall near some steps. --• After the pistol was fired he saw some stones thrown. It was an officer who fired the pistol at. about the distance of 50 yards from the deceased, who appeared to be killed by the pistol, because no other was fired a' that moment.— Witness remarked the officer as very active when the Life Guards joined the procession al Kensington, ' i he officer This case excited very general interest. Mr. Marrya* t ( with whom were Mr. Andrews and Mr. Abraham) stated the plaintiff's case as one of great hardship and oppression. The plaintiff was a respectable farmer, of established morals and reputation. The de- fendant was a young clergyman of the Church of England, ami had recently been put into the Commission of the Peace. On the 8th of May last the piaiutiff and some of his friends, respectable and wealthy farmers, had been amusing themselves in shooting young rooks on his farm. It was agreed that the next day they should meet at the Bel! public- house, in Anstey, to divide the fruits of their sport. They were perfectly orderly in their conduct and quite sober. About three o'clock in the afternoon the defendant came to the public- house, and ordered the land Thiswasa matter about. The defeud- was very thin, and appeared to be about 16 or 18 years of age. lie stooped a good deal in riding. There were no stones thrown from the place where the man who was shot stood. The inquest was adjourned till Friday. SECOND D AY. F R ID A Y. Samuel Green, of Vineyard- walk Clerkenwell, pain- ter, deposed, that coming up to Cumberland- gate at the time of the obstruction, he s- iw a young officer, about 20, ride through the gate into Oxford St » eet, and fire a pis- tol. The officer then rode about, and presently fired an- other pistol towards the pavement on the north side ofthe street, upon which a man fell, who was standing side- ways, carelessly and quietly. The man was carried off and expired soon after. Witness would know the officer a^ ain, if in his regimentals. The'soldiers rode about and brandished their swords before and after the pistol was omission plainly indicates the kind of spirit which predominates among our Clergy. Yet these men profess to be followers of JESUS CHRIST, to walk ill his footsteps, to teach his precepts, to inculcate his spirit, to promote harmony, charity, and chris- tian love ! Out upon such hypocrisy I It is such conduct which renders the very name of our establish- ed Clergy odious till it stinks in the nostrils ; that makes our churches look like deserted sepulchres, rather than temples of the living GOD ; that raises up conventicles in every corner, and increases the brood of wild fanatics and enthusiasts ; that causes fired. Tifis cdtited rtmeli irritation ara^ ng the prnp! o, who expressed itby hissing and cries of " murder!" The people uniformly behaved quietly except when the soldiers interfered. Mr. John Cook, of Francis Street, Tottenham- Couvt- road, stated that he the first to ride through Cumber- land gate, when the procession was passing through thc Pai k. lie went over the way to Cumberland- street, anil there remained. It was a very advantageous place for seeing what passed. There were some soldiers at the gate, and not many people at first. Alxnit thirty of thc people pitshed to one half of tht? gate, at which moment, there were some soldiers in Oxford street, and soma in the I'ark. The latter cut at the people who held the gate and drove them away. The soldiers then came all out into the street, and appeared very confused, and uncertain what to do. A. great many stone* and brickbats were then thrown ; and an officer, full of daspiiation. rushed with drawn sword upon a foot.- passen- ger who stooped under the wall. Witness did not sea whether the officer's blow took effect. The soldiers then galloped about, and the people dispersed in all directions. Shots were fired, first in the air, afterwards generally Witness rode up to a young officer who appeared dread- fully agitated, and remonstrated with him. The officer seemed so confused, witness thought with terror, that he scarcely seemed to know what witness said. His answer was, ' I could not help it. What was I to do ? I can- not help it now.' Witness answered. ' You might exert your influence to check it.' Had witness known that a man had been shot, he should have supposed that the officer alluded to that circumstance. " Witness should know the officer again ; he had an effeminate voice and boyish coun- tenance. William Spratt, Shoemaker, of Little- fttissell Street, Bloomsbury, was standing near Cumberland- gate, look- ing on, when the slashing and firing took place. A pri- vate of the Guards came up, anil cut at witness. He hel l up his umbrella, which the sword cut, and knocked against his head, so as to bruise it. ( J'he umbrella was ju- oduc- ed ) Witness ran away, and the same soldier drew a pistol, and fired at him. Witness then saw an officer, a out 1= 1 or 20. turn round ( his horse standing s: i! l.) draw a pis'ol from his itolster, and taking deliberate aim, shoot, a man near the kiib- stone. When the man staggered, the officer laughed. Witness would know the officer again in his regimentals. William Alexander, a youth abou' IS, living in Tower Street, Solio, was standing within two yards of the deceas- ed when the officer shot him, exactly as described by la t witness. Mr Sheriff Waithman. who had on Wednesday spoken of the necessity of having the soldiers brought furward, that the witnesses might identify them, now agaia adverted to the subject.

Mr. Sheriff Waithman,— If a soldier stole a leg , » f mutton, his commanding officer would have the whole re- giment drawn up. ill order that the thief might lie iden- tified ; and I hope that less will not be done where the life of a hitman being is in question. Mr. Green.— As Foreman of tile Jury, 1 request you, Mr- Coroner, to take measures for having the regiment drawn up Th.' Coroner.— All I could do is, to write to the Com- mander- in- Chief, intimating your request to him. Mr. Hanson ( Solicitor to the Regiment.)— Under these circumstances he would not recommend any gentleman f.* come here to give a view of themselves ; but he certain, would report what the Jury wished. The Foreman.— If the request be refused, then the odium will rest where it ought to rest. William Cleaver Grocer, of Church S'reet, Chelsea, was so near the deceased, that he fell against him, when shot. ( Some description of the murdering officer as be- fore.) " About three quarters of an hour afterwards," proceeded the witness, " in returning to Chelsea, I saw the same officer at Cumberland- gate, with 12 or 14 men. I went up to the officer and said, ' You're a pretty feJiotr to shoot a man are you not ?' He looked at me, and said, ' I wish you were shot too.' He then moved his horse down to the farther end of his company. A gentleman came up and spoke to him. He appeared to he a frieml of the offi. e-, and whispered something to hint ; attire conclusion, the gentleman said, • 1 wish you well out of it.' I was a little exasperated, and spoke to the officer in a manner which I am ashamed of; but as I am sworn. I will repeat my words : I slid, ' I shall know your I . re again, you are so d— d ugly.' If he were in uniform, I should know him in 500. The next witness was Mr. George Rogers of Morn- ington i'lace, Hampstead road He spoke merely to the general conduct of the people and soldiers. Among the latter, he said, was a young man, whom, from thc effemi- nacy of his appearance, and Ihe gilding of his cloaths, he judged to be an officer. During this examination, some reference being made to statements in the newspapers, Mr. Stirling, the Coroner, said, he doubted whether any Re- porters ought to be allowed to attend the inquest ! Elizabeth Barker, a widow, was violently struck by the deceased falling, after lie was shot Witness was so con- fused, she did not see who fired. Deceased had done nothing but call out" City, City !" Henry Montngue, a servant, living in Upper Bedford Place, saw an officer fire at a man near Cumberland Street. Oid not see . the man fall, but heard a cry of' Murder !' He saw no stones thrown before that, but afterwards they came in great abundance. The officer was young and thin : rode a brown horse with a short, tail. After the man was shot, a numberof persons pointed out the officer, who. they said, had ' murdered' liiui. The officer heard them. He shook his head, not in sorrow, but is if lie exulted at it. Before adjourning, a conversation took place with re- g ird to the means of procuring the attendance of Ihe sol- diers. The Jury shewed a laudable earnestness to effect that innocent object. One of them significantly asked, " Is it to he supposed that any gentleman in the Life Guard's will be ashamed of the duly which iie was called 011 to perform on that day ?" Mr. Hanson, lire Regi- mental Attorney, wanted them to go through thecounter- • evidence before they had up the soldiers ; but this was t so obviously abiiird and suspicious, that the Jury would not think of it. At length tile Jury unanimously signed the following Resolution : — " We, the undersigned Jurymen, assembled to asccr- , tain the cause of the death of Richard Honey, respect- j fully request Mr. Stirling, the Coroner, to make applica- tion to the proper authorities, that the troop of Life Guards, or such part of them as was on duty in the Park a t the funeral of her late Majesty on Tuesday last, may be drawn up in such dresses, and on uirh horses us they i^ fod on that day, for the inspection of the witnesses, in order to see whether they could identify thc person who shot the above deceased." This was handed to the Coroner, with a request ho would take immediate steps to comply wiih it. The Coroner acceded ; and the Inquest was adjourned to Monday. ( Richard Honey was thirty- five years of age ; he bore a most excellent character. His only relatives here arc a brother and sister from the country, of most respectable character and appearance). The troop of Life Guards was, conformably to the re- quest of the Jury. to lie drawn up on Tuesday for the ins- pection of the witnesses. EXCLUSION OF THE JURV FROM THE BARRACKS. We stated in our report of yesterday, that thc Jury ad- journed to Tuesday at one o'clock, from ihe New Imt Tavern, in the Kdgware- road, to Ihe White Horse, Knight- bridge, with the intention of renewing their in- quiry by proceeding in the first instance, from that bouse, along with the Ci roner, to attend the inspection of the- Life Guards by the witnesses, for the purpose of identify, ing the officer, who is stated to have sli^ t the deceased on the fatal 14th of August. About the appointed hour i! io | whole of the Jury were assembled, but the Coroner did ; not appear until close upon two o'clock. Immediately ; afterwards the Jury adjourned to the Hose and Crown, of which notice was given by a notice fixed up on iho former place, and thence they proceeded towards the Bar. racks, with Ihe Coroner at their head. Previously to this, however, tile gates of the Burraek- vard had been clo- ed, and we understood the troops were about tu be dtawn up on the inside; at which time sonic k. V strictures on the Parliamentary conduct of tlie Gentle- man whose name is prefixed to these letters. I will not attempt any euloginrft on the character of the MOST EFFI- CIENT MEMBER in the House of Commons ; but I cannot refrain from expressing the high admiration I entertain of his unwearied exertions in detecting abuses, and his re- solute firmness in exposing them. Wherever his pene- trating eye can discover the least vestige of corruption, iiis strenuous efforts soon drag it forth to view. Instead of restricting himself to one particular department, his com- prehensive mind grasps the whole system, and unfolds the most extensive and intricate combinations, with a degree of simplicity and dispatch that is truly astonishing. His name has, in fact, become a response to the whole muster- roll of the opposition. Unassisted by any Court or individual interest, unaided save by his own intrinsic worth, Mr. HITME has shed a halo of respect and consequence both around his own cha- racter and this city which he represents ; the merit he ac- quires, is earned by persevering and accurate research. If he is not endowed with that brilliancy of talent which astonishes by its dazzling splendour,' and whose exertions, though momentary, are so transcendent and impo- ing— he possesses a large fund of strong solid sense, which he applies much more effectually to the service of his country. His private character forms the counterpart, of his public conduct, and we therefore listen to his opinion with at- tention and respect, aware that it is dictated by integrity and honour. It is impossible to bestow any adequate reward on Mr. HUME for his independent conduct. It. were an insult to suppose him capable of being recompensed more effectually than by the approbationof his own heart, and the gratefu1 thanks of his Constituents. Some token of our esteem, however. mi< jht with equal justice and delicacy be offered HORACE having once, when tipsev, declared that he would make a voyage to Britain, and even committed himself on paper, as we see, Ode IV. Lib. 3.—" Visam Britannos— hospitilfus ferns ; lie thought himself li'itnul in honour to fulfil his engagement, although he mortally disliked the sea. The ship he sailed in was caifed the Brit- tania, whether because destined for Britain, or be- cause built of British wood, commentators are not agreed. After a verv tedious voyage he arrived at Portsmouth, the ship grievouslv shattered ; and the Captain having put some of his crew in irons, for objecting to his going to sea again immediately in such a condition, the weather also stormy— HORACE addressed the fourteenth Ode of the 1st Book to the ship : 0 No vis ! referent in mare te novi Fluclus? & c. And for writing this Ode, QUINTILI A" JJ assures ns, HORACE was indicted bv the Attornev- General for a libel, as having, under the allegorv of a ship, painted the dangers and distresses of the State. The following translation, by an eminent Pro- fessor, will give the English reader all the meaning and much of the spirit of the original: TO THE GOOD SHIP BRITANNIA. Britannia while fresh storms are brewing, Pray what the devil are you doing? Put back to harbour might and main, Nor venture out to sea again : Your hull's too tender long to last, You're fain to try a jury mast, Your tackles old your timbers crazy, The winds are high the weather hazy ; Your anchors lost, you've sprung a leak, your ropes and cordage how they creak ! A rag of canvas scarce remains; Your pilot idly beats his brains— A cub that knows not stem from stern, Too high t'ubey, too proud to learn — Iu vain you worry Heaven wish prayers, } Think you that Heaven one farthing cares, > Whether a sailor prays or swears ? ) In vain you sport your thread- bare joke, And call yourself old Heart of Oak," No seaman that can box his compass, Trusts to your daubs and titles pompous. Take head lest Boreas play the mocker, And cry " snug birth in Davy's Locker." Though while on board as sick as hell, On shore old girl I wish you well. Beware of shoals, of wind and weather, And try to keep your planks together ; Else, will the ravenous sea engorge, And lodge you with the Royal George. of. the witnesses, being furnished with their tickets, were waiting for the time of admission opposite the gates ; " at the same time, several gentlemen, who have been In the habit of daily attending the Jury, among whom was Mr. Sheriff Waithman; who acts for the relatives of the deceased, and Sir R. Phillips, were on the spot; Jmt they did not seek for admittance. Tt was two o'clock when the Coroner and Jury arrived at the gates, and having knocked for admission, one of the gat^ s was opened, and a short conversation, which we coul 1 not bear, passed between them and the centinel ; immediate- ly after which the gate was shut, and the Coroner and . Jury went towards a small door, which led into the yard of the barracks. There the Coroner knocked, and a dra- goon opened the door and asked their business. The Coroner having informed him of the cause of their com- ing, requested him to convey a message to that effect to the officer in command. The door was then shut, and soon after opened, when an officer appeared, and told the soldier that the Coroner should wait a little ; but at the moment perceiving the Coroner near the door, he said, *' You must wait for a short time, Sir." The door was closed once more, and opened soon again, when the dragoon inquired of the Coroner whether he had a ticket. The The Coroner answered, that it was he who gave the tickets. The door was then closed, and some of the Jury observed, that they ought to take the precaution of get- ting tickets. Some of them were accordingly furnished with tickets, which they presented on requiring to be ad- mitted again. The Coroner" then entered the Barrack- yard, several of the Jury following him. The officer, who was at the side of the door, observing several of the Jury coming ill together, told the dragoon that none should be admitted without tickets, and that such as had should only be admitted one by one. At the instant those Jurymen who were foremost, both with and without tickets, were, in a forcible and violent manner, pushed back by two or three of the soldiers ; their manner of giving way not seeming to the military to be sufficiently precipitate, an Officer cried out in a threatening tone, Soldiers do your duty," upon which the foremost Jury- men were violently driven back by the soldiers, and one of them received a severe blow from a dragoon on the face with his fist, which would have knocked him down, if he bad not been prevented from falling by the persons be- hind him. The door was then shut in the faces of the party ; it was, however, opened again, aud those who « had tiekefs were then allowed to go in. Such of the J crowd as observed the personal violence to the Jurymen, expressed their disgust by cries of14 shame" and hissing. The Coroner, and such Members of the Jury as had gain- ed admittance remained for a short time in the Barrack- yard, but were not aliowed to see any of the witnesses or the soldiers, except those immediately within the door.— We were not admitted, but were informed, that when the Jurors were asked for t'ckets, it was al. so mentioned to them that none could be received, but such as were sign- ed by the names of the bearers. We are informed, that the Coroner then proceeded to add the names of the bear- ers of the tickets ; but this not being considered satisfac- j tory, they were given to understand that none could be » admitted but witnesses. The Jury then were peremp- j torily ordered to withdraw, or that force should be re- t sorted to. and they finally came awav. apparently filled j with indignation at the insolent treatment to which they j liaJ been exposed. It was observed, that the shoulders of some bore marks of the soldiers' white gloves. The witnesses identified some of the officers and pri- vates who fired on the people. ADJOURNED INQUEST ON RICHARD HONEY. The Jury met at half- past two. The first witness called was Blr. Thomas Emans, Lieutenant and Adjutant of the 1st regiment of Life Guards. He produced the Roster and Orderly Book, in which the names of the officers at- tending and assisting Sir Robert Baker, on the 14th August, appeared. The number of men was 56, exclu- sive of an officer, Captain Oakes. and 2 subalterns..— ; They were sent out to assist the civil power at Reusing- j ton, by order of Sir Robert Baker. The subalterns were, ' Lieutenant Storey and Lieutenant Hall. The witness j also produced a letter from Captain Macdonald, the De- ! puty- Adjutant- General, ordering detachments to the ] various gates of the Park. Lieutenants Storey and Gore j were sent out with men accordingly. Witness saw all the j ' witnesses inspect the troops for the purpose of identifica- tion yesterday. He walked with them down the lines, j ( consisting of about 256 men.) and every man's name ; they pointed out was taken down by Mr. Birnie the Ma- j gist rate. Some officers pointed out were those above- mentioned. The witnesses neither all nor gent rally fixed ; vpon one individual. The officers never changed their j places, and all was conducted with the utmost fairness.— j On the 14th inst. two soldiers had their shoulders « broken, one his leg. and one was struck by a brickbat on j the face. In all. 5 were absent in the hospital yesterday, j Thirty- seven men, and seven horses, had sustained vari • j ous injuries. The witnesses were not permitted to in- j spect till about half- past three, according to the best of j his recollection, and it was not over till seven. He did . r> ot know that a Juryman had been struck in the face by a j Life Guardsman, or that others had been pushed and in- ^ suited. All justice wasdouethe witness. Mr. Sheriff Waithman insisted that the witnesses had j been intimidated at the barracks. Mr. Blake), ( the jtfror who had been struck,) with j some warmth explained the circumstances of the assault, as the Jury were attempting to exercise their right. The J introduction of this subject brought on an angry coriver- j cation, one of the Jury maintaining that they had brought upon themselves the insults they had sustained. Mr. Ernans added, that he did not see the men laugh at the witnesses nor were they allowed to turn their faces awav. R. Birnie. E* q. the Magistrate of Bow Street, also fpoke to what occurred at the barracks. He, accom- panied by Rainsford of Queen Square Police Office, had teen detained from two till half- past four at the barracks, * hen the men were turned out, some with, and some without their cloaks, by order of Sir H. Torrens. A few tickets had been refused because the name was not inserted. The troops were in four lines, and the witnesses one by one were led down them. Some wished for a second examination, and it was allowed by Sir H. Tor- rens, though the Commanding Officer, Colonel Caven- dish, said that it was contrary to his instructions. The name of every person identified was taken down; and before every witness he ( Mr. Birnie) asked and was as sured by Colonel Cavendish, that all the officers and men # mt on the 14th were present, but one who was in the hos- pital. Witness had not taken down the names of the arsons identified. Colonel Hill of the Blues, acting as silver stick, had suggested from Mr. II. Torrens, that another day might be more convenient. Lieutenant Storey was pointed out by one witness. Adjutant Emans teok down the names, and probably Mr. Stafford, Clerk of Bow Street, with the words the witnesses used. Two witnesses fixed on the same officer, but only two. The hoy Alexander fixed upon Lieutenant Gore. Some witnesses were in doubt about two men much alike. The witnesses had undergone no examination in the barracks, but were merely asked what they came for. The soldiers were not allowed to speak to them. Some of the officers smiled, but did not look cross. It was ordered that Mr. Stafford should attend, and Mr. Birnie undertook to send him with the minutes he took. Thomas Austin, of Dorset, St. Port man Square, pub- lican, was called by Mr. Waithman, at the request of Mr. Hanson, who disbelieved the fact, to prove that one of the Life Guards out on the l< 5th inst. was not paraded yesterday, but was drinking at his ( the witness's) house. He said, that a man of the 1st regiment of Life Guards, on a furlough for three days, was drinking in his house yesterday afternoon. The man said that he had been at Kensington and Cumberland Gate, but had not fired at ct cut any body. As the man could not be identified, the witness was ordered to withdraw. The examination was continued on Friday, and the Inquest was adjourned to Monday. CORONER'S INQUEST ON THE BODY OF GEORGE FRANCIS. An Inquest was held on Friday before Mr. Higgs, the Deputy Coroner, on the body of George Francis, who died in St. George's Hospital, on Wednesday evening, in consequence of a gun- shot wound received by him the day before, from one of the Life Guards near Tyburn Turn- pike. The Rev. Mr. Hughes, the Chaplain of St. George's.— Had a conversation with the deceased for the first time at two o'clock on Tuesday. He asked him his name, business, and place of residence ; he told him he was a journeyman bricklayer. Deceased & aid he resided at Kinysgate Street, TTolborn, and thai he hail a wife and family. He sale? he wished his wife ro be sent, for, as he considered himself a dying man. Witness, then directed a person to go for the wife. Nothing particular then occurred ; but witness en- deavoured Jo console him as his spirits drooped very much. Returned to him at six o'clock, aii: l found his wife with him ; read pravers t > him, asking whether he had any malice or ill- will against any man ? He answered in the negative, saving, that he bore no ill- will ; for he consi- dered he who shot him had done nothing more than his duty ; for, if. a soldier, he was only acting in his own de- fence. lie considered him dying. Witness asked him, whether he threw any thing at. the soldiers, and he said, no, not at all. But he stated that he had been in the crowd ; he was however a. little retired frorri the crowd at the time he Was shot ; he. was then on the pavement. Wit- ness said he was not aware of having heard any thing fur- ther from the deceased in the way of evidence. He had had much conversation with the deceased ; the wife of the deceased was present at the time ; she was about the bed sobbing; he believed that she heard the greater, part of the conversation ; the deceased did not describe the pcr- sol) bv whom he Was shot to be a Life Guardsman ; but he had no doubt that the deceased thought him to be so as he had heard so much talk about the Life Guards ; when lie spoke of self- defence, he said that brickbats were flung at the soldiery. A Juror asked, whether the deceased said whoever shot him was doing his duty ; did he know who that man was ? The witness replied, that his evidence was, that the de- ceased said to him when he considered himself in a dying state, that whoever shot him was doing his duty ; for. as a soldier, he was evidently actingin his self de fence. The deceased had never said, that he had thrown any stones or brickbats at the soldiery. A Juror observed, that the witness bad said, that the wife of the deceased « as present at the conversation which he had mentioned, in which he deposed that the deceas- ed said any man who shot him was doing his duty, and if a soldier, evidently acting in self- defence. Now if the wife should be brought forward, and that she contradicted the words of the • witness, would the witness say that she was perjured ? Witness replied, that he could not swear to the precise words of the deceased, but only to the subs- tance of what he said. Mr. Philips, the advocate for the prosecution, objected to the acceptation of the dying declaration of the deceas- ed in evidence, unless his precise words were quoted ; and for that objection he quoted the authority of Philips on the Law of Evidence. But after a short observation from Mr. Hanson, who maintained that the objeetion was not applicable in this case, it was over- ruled, and the evi- dence of the Rev. Gentleman, as to the substance of the dying declaration of the deceased, was allowed to stand. Mary Francis, the wife of the deceased, was next exa- mined. She deposed, that her husband left home about ten o'clock on Tuesday morning in excellent health. He was about 4o years of age. The next time she saw her husband afterwards was in St. George's Hospital ; it was about two o'clock in the day ; she was sent for and found him in bed there ; there was some conversation between them at the time, but he did not say that he did not. ex- pect to live ; he said that he saw the mob flinging brick- bats at the soldiers. Here Mr. Hanson interposed, and was called upon by two of Jury to state upon what authority he interfered with the proceedings. Mr. H. produced his authority, which was read by the Coroner and by the Foreman of the Jury. It was an authority, we understood, from Colonel Caven- dish, of the Life Guards, which was deemed satisfactory. Witness resumed— She was with her husband about six o'clock on Tuesday, when the minister was there.— She heard a conversation between them, but her mind was so agitated that she could not say what the whole of it was. The minister asked her husband whether he had been at the gate making any riot before he was shot ; to which her husband replied, that he was as- innocent as the boy who then stood before them. The minister enjoining him to speak the truth, asked him whether he bore ill will or malice to any one, and her husband answered in the negative. She could not say that her husband said any thing else ; but he did not say that the soldiers were doing their duty when they shot him ; she must have heard him if he did say so to the Minister ; her husband said that he did not know who shot him. She was asked whether her husband had used these words, that " whoever shot him was doing his duty ; for if a soldier, he was evi- dently acting in his own defence," she declared that he did not ; but she remembered that the Minister said her husband made no answer ; he did not assent to. what the Minister so said, or mention the name of the soldiers at all. Here the poor woman manifested such emotions as affected the whole Court ; throughout her examination, indeed, she was suffused in tears. A Juryman, expressing his reluctance to prolong the examination of Mrs. Francis, especially in her present state of a ffj clion. begged to ask whether the Jury were not to understand that, after the deceased disclaimed to the Minister ill- will or malice against any one, the de- claration, that whoever shot him was doing hisduty, for if a soldier he was acting in his own defence," were words which he never used. The witness replied in the affir- | mative, and was then about to withdraw, when Mr Hanson was observed to put a paper into her hand. This paper, which contained Mr. II's address, being handed to Mr. Philips, that gentleman asked for what purpose it was given. Mr. Hanson exclaimed, that be felt indignant at the question, as he did not put his address into the hand of the witness until her evidence was gone through ; and as. his only object was, as he mentioned to her, that if a subscription were set on foot for her, he should be ready, when called upon, to contribute his mite. This he did because he understood from a gentleman below stairs, that it was intended to institute a subscription for the poor woman. One of the Jury observed, that the Learned Gentle- man needed no communication with Mrs. Francis, at his own house, in order to indulge his benefice, as he might easily send his subscription to her by the Two- penny Post. SECOND DAY.— On Monday the Coroner's In- quest on George Francis, one of the men shot near Cumberland- gate, was resumed, at the Goat public- house, Arabella- row, Pimlico. Mr. Higgs, the Deputy Coroner for Westminster, at- tended at three o'clock, and after the Jury had been all called, he addressed them, stating, that since the Inquest was adjourned, he) khad received a communication from the Secretary of State, which he should read for their in- formation. [ The communication was in all respects similar to that made to Mr. Stirling, on the body of Honey. | Several witnesses were then examined, whose evidence was of a similar nature to that given on the Inquest preceding. At a quarter past six o'clock Mr. Harmer, the Solici- tor, who attended on behalf of the friends of the d eceas- ed, suggested the expediency of farther adjournment, as th"& Jury could not hear the whole of the witnesses that night. He had many witnesses to examine, and a deal to go into. The Jury perhaps, under all the circum- stances, might wish to give the witnesses an opportunity of seeing the Guards drawn out, before they proceeded farther. The Jury approved of the suggestion of Mr. Harmer, and after some farther conversation, the Coro- ner adjourned the investigation till Wednesday, at three o'clock. The examination of witnesses were continued until Friday, when the Jury retired, and were absent for twenty minutes, and on their return, and their names being called over, the Foreman returned the verdict— " Wilful Murder against a Life Guardsman, to us un- known as Jurors." The Coroner—" Is the verdict unanimous ?" The Foreman—" It is the unanimous verdict of the Jury." After the Jury had signed their verdict, the Foreman moved a vote of thanks to the Coroner for his patient and impartial conduct in this most laborious and painful in- vestigation ; and also to Mr. Harmer and Mr. Hanson, the Solicitors on both sides, for their gentlemanly con- duct, and for the assistance which the Jury had received from them throughout the inquiry. The Coroner and the Learned Gentlemen shot tly re- turned thanks. The proclamation was then made at ten o'clock, dissolving the Inquest. On the verdict beingmade known to the persons in the street, there was a shout of approbation. thers Laltemantl, and same ot. ier French, officcfor the purpose of offering his services to the Greeks Baron StafroW, on his way to Npvavra, left, on passing through out' city, the gef. jn of a piece of news which has spread into all circles, and" has excited AS much surprise as jov. It appears that after a decision come to by the Courts of $ t. Petersburgh and Vienna, and to which all the atighst Sovereigns composing the Holy Alliance have ad- hered, overtures were to- be made at Novarra to Prince de Comnene, descendant of the ancient Emperors o£ the East. It is no longer doubted that ail the Princes, of the Christian world are resolved to employ this only sure means of conciliating the rights or humanity with the cause of legitimacy. - In support of this important news, the Journal de Lyon et die, Midi adds the following details, premising at the same time, that they have come to it in a round about way, and that it . cannot warrant their correctness : — . " A personage of distinction, attached to the Russian Diplomacy, went to Novarra, to see Prince Alexis de Comnene, the most direct descendant of the Emperors of the East, and delivered to him an autograph letter from the Emperor Alexander. " After a long interview, the Northern Envoy set . out in the night time, without any thing transpiring as to the motives of his journey ; but it was remarked that, at his de- parture, an Austrian guard of' honour was placed at the door of the house occupied by Prince Comnene. with a white and rose- coloured flag, bearing the monogrammeof Christ, the armorial sign of the ancient Emperors of Con- stantinople." . It is stated in several letters which we have received from Italy, that the garrisons of the towns in Lower Italy being though insufficient, the Austrian army will receive a further reinforcement. These troops observe the strict- est discipline. The garrison of Naples always encamps, at night, outside the city ; the cavalry has orders to be constantly in readiness to mount, and the artillerymen are equally on the alert. Numerous patrols constantly traverse the streets and the surrounding country, ready to move wherever their presence is required. • . MA DIM D. At? g. 6.— Their . Majesties- have returned from the baths of S- icedon, and made their entry into this capital on the 3d instant. The day following, his Majesty catised an Order of the Day to be posted, in which he states, that no acclamation that greeted him was more agreeable than that of" Long live our Constitutional King!" and adds, that they who thought to please. him by. other exclamations, had on the contrary acted in a manner very unwelcome to his feelings. On this occasion, an incident had nearly changed the general joy to mourning. As his Majesty's carriage was passing la Puerta del Sol, amidst a vast assemblage of persons, aloud explosion was heard, which proceeded from the Convent St, Augustin, on the terrace St. Philippe. On search being made, a metal box was found which had been charged with a quantity of powder, and was much torn by the explosion. This sort of" infernal machine" was so awkwardly arranged, that it did not do the least mischief. Alarm, however, was general, and a some- what violent movement took place amongst the assembled multitude. Several of the National Guaids threw down their arms, ran off, and shut themselves up in their dwel- lings. Two individuals have been arrested, as accused of being implicated in this criminal attempt. FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. FROM FRENCH PAPERS. PARIS, Aug. 18.— Joseph Napoleon has quitted America, accompanied by Lefebre Desnouettes, the bro- FROM GERMAN PAPERS. HANOVER, Aug. 10.— The Police Office Has in- vited all the inhabitants of the City and Suburbs to give a statement of the houses or lodgings which they intend to let during the visit of his Majesty the King, in order that strangers who arrive may be immediately informed of those which are still to be disposed of. j^ s it is known that the arrival of his Majesty in this City is not to be expected before the 26th September, the exercise of the troops, which was fixed for the 20th Sep- tember, is now put off till the 26th. From that day for- ward all the regiments in the chief garrisons are to be com- plete in every respect, that they may be ready to march hither on the first, notice. ST. PETERSBURGH, July 24 Whether the Emperor Alexander entertained or not, since the last treaty of Paris, previously to, during, or after the Con- gress of Aix- la- Cbapelle, and those of Carlsbad and Lay- bach, views of future aggrandizement, or whether he was only desirous of insuring the maintenance of peace by the display of an immense military force ; it is at least certain, that he has been continually augmenting the number of his regular troops, and that by his system of colonization, he has evinced that he had in view to instill a martial spirit into the entire population of Russia. Russia contains. about thirty- eight millions of inhabi- tants; that is to say, nineteen millions males. The ob- ject of colonization is, that there may be always two in a hundred capable of bearing arms, which, if all the Rus- sian empire were colonized, would give .580,000 men exclusive of the regular troops. At present, the Empe- ror can only draw at the utmost, 250.000 men ; besides the Russian Nobles, who are proprietors of immense do- mains, and numerous inhabitants, are opposed to his sys- tem, and do not introduce it in their possessions, but think it sufficient to furnish the men, whom they are bound to to do for the contingent of the Imperial troops. These troops at this moment amount to the alarming number of 912,000 men. exclusively of the colonization forces, the permanent army of Siberia ( the number of which is not very accurately known) and the Polish army, which, in truth, amounts only to twenty- five or thirty thousand men, and which the Russians hold in sovereign contempt. BERLIN. Aug. 4.— An order has been issued by our Government to send away from the Universities all the Students who are suspected to be Members of Secret So- cieties. Whether or not there still exist such Societies is unknown to us; but we know this much, that they could not possibly more injure the Government than such an order does, which renders it unworthy of any moral esteem. No where punishment is. inflicted on the mere ground of suspicion, except in despotic States ; and after this speci- men of Prussian legislation, we trust nobody can be doubt- ful as to the nature and character of our Government.— Mr. V. Michelsfelt has made his escape. The manner in which this distinguished young man has been treated is another striking instance of that flagrant injustice by which our Government, disgraces itself, in open defiance to pub- lic opinion, and to the first principles of law. AUG. 12.— Letters from Dantzic, . which arrived this day, announce that some scenes of tumult, and even of bloodshed, have taken place between the populace pro- fessing Christianity and the Jews, which required the in- terference of an armed force. A recent order of the Ca- binet enjoins the police to arrest any student travelling without a regular passport. ULM, August 15— Letters from Naples, which ar- rived by the last courier from Italy, state, that it has been resolved to banish a certain number of persons who took a more or less active part in the late revolution. The list of exiles, it is said, includes about 90 persons, but the names are not as yet known. They may fix their resi- dence in Austria, Prussia, or Russia. They are all to be transferred to Trieste, from which place they will; re- pair to their future destination. The Austrian troops, whose duty it is to maintain good order in the kingdom of Naples, are not distributed into garrisons. The formation of moveable col urns has been adopted in preference, which can easily traverse the pro- vinces, and advance rapidly to any quarter where their presence maybe required. Their excessive heat has been very fatal to the Austrian soldiers, numbers of whom are sick, or have already fal- len victims to contagious diseases. AMERICA, NEW YORK, July 26.— General Jackson issued a Proclamation at Pensacola, dated June 25, officially an- nouncing that the Government heretofore exercised over Florida by Spain has ceased, and that of the United States is established over the same ; thus is happily and peace- fully terminated our dispute with Spain. MAJOR ANDRE.— The Duke of York, in com- pl'ance with the suggestion of the British Consul of this city, has ordered him to cause the remains of the late Major Andre to be disinterred, and sent in a ship of war to England, to bo buried in Westminster Abbey. day, fbe Lord Lieutenant proceeded fo the foot of the Thrope, and taking the sword of state from his Grace the Duke of Leinster, who bore it in the Procession pre- sented it to his Majesty,, Who,, in the most gracious man- ner returned it. and commanded, that during his stay in his Irish Capital, the. sword, upon all state occasions should be borne by his Excellency. Shortly after the conclusion of the ceremony liis Majesty appeared at the window, and saw with astonishment that the assemblage of Householders, and the different trades which followed his carriage in the Procession,- had not yet passed through the Castle- yard ; although they continued during the Ce remony to proceed at the pace in which the Procession moved. His Majesty with great condescension, and, with evident feeling, addressed a few words to the crowd which filled the Ca>, tle- yanl ; but the shouts which rent the air did hot enable us to collect their substance. The bodies in attendance, for the purpose of presenting Addresses which his . Majesty was to receive on the Throne, were then introduced. IIis Majesty was seated, surroun- ded by all his Great Officers of State, and delivered the Answers in the most gracious and impressive manner. They all breathe the purest regard and most anxious soli- citude for his Irish people. The first Address was that from the Archbishops, Bishops, aud Clergy ; it was read by the I. ord Primate. The Recorder read the Address, from the Lord Mayor and Corporation, to the King. The Lord Mayor on presenting it bad the honour of k'ssing his Majesty's hand ; and when in. the act of rising, bis Majesty, in the most gracious manner, presented his hand a second . time, addressing him by the title of Sir Abraham Bradley King, a Iiaronet of his United Empire, at the'saine time con- descending . to inform him that directions for his Patent had been given. The Provost and Deputation from tlie University then brought up their Address, which. was read by the Provost- After the Addresses were presented on the Throne, aud bis Majesty had delivered his answers, he retired to bis closet, where he received the Deputation and Addresses from the Roman Catholics, Dissenters, and Quakers,— To each of the Addresses his Majesty delivered the most gracious Answers. On Wednesday evening he honoured the Theatre with bis presence, and was received with the most enthusiastic applause ; the bouse was crowded to excess, He has also visited the Linen Hall and the Bank. On Thursday a grand civic dinner was given by the Cor •. oration of Dub. 1 ill to his Majesty, at which most of the distinguished per- sons now in the Irish capital were present. The enter- tainment was of the most splendid description, and excited his Majesty's warmest approbation, which he personally expressed to the Lord Mayor. The following are the answers of his Majesty to, the Addresses from the Catholics, Presbyterians, and Quakers of Ireland : ANSWER TO THE ROMAN CATHOLIC ADDRESS. I am highly gratified by your Congratulations 011 my arrival in this Country, and by the sentiments of cordial and dutiful attachment which you have, expressed to my. Person and Throne. It was my earnest wish, in visiting this part of my United Kingdom, that art equal degree of satisfaction might be diffused amongst all descriptions of my faithful Subjects in Ireland. That wish is happily I and fully accomplished ; and 1 am persuaded that 110 en- deavours will be wanting, on your part, to cherish and preserve that spirit of loyal union which now pervades and animates the whole Community, and which is not less conducive to individual and social happiness, than to the strength and prosperity of the State. ANSWER TO THE PRESBYTERIAN DISSENTERS' ADDRESS. The sentiments which you have expressed on my ar- rival in this part of my dominions, are highly gratifying to me, and are entitled to my warmest thanks. I have, the fullest confidence in your faithful and, firm attachment to my Person and Throne ; and you ivviy be assured of my constant protection of those civil and religious liber- ties, which are the birthright of my people. ANSWER TO THE SOCIETY OF FRIENDS' ADDRESS. It is highly satisfactory to me to receive your Congra- tulations 011 my arrival in this part of my kingdom, and your assurances of attachment to my Person and Go- vernment. The loyalty of your principles and your re- gular aud peaceable conduct, entitle you to my good opi- nion and esteem. You may rely upon mv constant pro- tection, and on the continuance of those privileges which you now so justly possess. At his Majesty's levee, which was held at Dublin on Tuesday last, the Earl of Fingal was creatcd a Knight of St. Patrick; and the Catholic Prelates were received at Court for the first time as Bishops. It is expected that on the winding up of the late Queen's affairs there will be a surplus of about £ 10,000 for . Mr. Austin. General Pepe, who commanded the Patriot army of Naples against the Austrian", is arrived at Falmouth froth Lisbon , the object ofhis visit is not known. The Neapolitan General Pepe passed through Exeter on Tuesday morning ( the 14th inst.) for London.— l^ xe- ler Gazette. Seventeen of the bodies of those who perished by the loss of the Dublin packet, Earl Moira. have been washed ashore. The total number now picked up is thirty- one. Amongst these are the bodies of the Captain and mate, Miss Yates of London, and Captain Bagnall, of the 66th Regiment of Foot; the latter was interred on Sunday morning, at St. Mary's church, Edge- hill, The others were the bodies of persons Unknown. Many of them were much disfigured bv lying in the water; but they appeared, by their dress, to have been labouring men. A Dublin paper states as follows :—•* From a passenger who arriv- in the Waterloo steam- packet yesterday, we are sorry to find that a Mr. Raymond, and a sister of aii eminent phy- sician of this city, with her two children, are amongst the sufferers on board the Earl Moira. Jkarly on Sunday morning last, the funeral squadron, consisting of his Majesty's ship Glasgow, with the remains of the late Queen on board, accompanied by the Tyne, the Rosario. the Wye, and the Gannett, appeared off Cuxbaven. They had not been brought to an anchor when the mail left Cuxhaven ; but as the wind was then blowing from the eastward, it was supposed ft would be necessary to moor the vessels, and that some days might elapse, before the fleet, on account of the prevalence of easterly winds, could proceed tip the Elbe as far as Stadt, the place fixed upon for the disembarkation.

Mr. William Rentoul, preacher of the gospel, K'm- i cardine, having been unanimously called to the pastoral charge of the Presbyterian congregation, Maryport, Cum- berland, about to be vacant by the Rev. Mr. Can ' s accept- ance of the presentation to the church and parish of Luss, Dumbartonshire, was ordained to the said congregation by the Presbytery of Dunblane, at their meeting 011 the 11th instant. His Majesty has been graciously pleased to present Mr. John Burns to be assistant and successor to the Rev. Mr, Chalmers, Auchtergaven, in the room of Mr. M• Lagan, late'y translated to Kin fauns. Yesterday morning a considerable number of shearers were hired at the West Port. The wages given were from lOd. to Is. with two diets. In the course of last week se- veral fields of oats and barley were cut down in the neigh- bourhood of this city. On Saturday la- t, off Bervie, a boat belonging to that place, after putting a Gentleman passenger on board an Aberdeen steam- vessel, on her passage to Leitb, from one of the regular traders between Wick and Leith, was in the act of pushing off, when, by some mismanagement of the seamen, in the boat, she got entangled with the ropes or machinery of the steam- packet, and was in ail instant upset. A poor family, consisting of the husband, who had come from the Wick sloop, were in the boat at the time of the accident. The Captain of the steam- vessel. and the seamen on board of her, made everv ex- ertion in getting out their boats and backing the vessel, and although it was a quarter of an hour ere they could return to the spot where the' accident happened, yet they fortunately succeeded in saving all the persons, except the man, who had sunk before they had reached the place. EXECUTION. — Wednesday morning, at half- past eight o'clock, John Rennieaud William Sutherland, con- victed on the 16th of July last of housebreaking and rob- bery, and condemned to death, were brought out for exe^ cution, attended by the Rev. Henry Grey, the Rev. Mr. PorteoUN, chaplain of the jail, and by Bailies Child ancl Mackenzie. The devotional exercises on the scaffold occu- pied about a quarter of an hour. After these were gone through, Sutherland addressed the assembled multitude ; he entreated them to take warning by his own and his com- panion's fate ; he was condemned for crimes of which he ' confessed himself gu: hy. lie said he freely forgave his enemies, aud especially one, placed in a situation of trust and responsibility, who, he solemnly declared, had been the cause of his ruiu, ( Here a gentleman tapped him | 1 r gently, and seemed t>- ay something to liirrt, Gnd lie pro- ceeded no farther.) Fie then knelt and prayed audibly a few miiiut s. Rennie eyed the whole proceeding, from the moment of li; s first ascending the scaffold to the period when the night- cap was drawn over his face, with callous indifference ; he appeared to take no share in the psalin which was sirng, and to lend an inattentive ear to the eloquent praver of Mr. Grey : he did tint attempt to speak. On ascending the drop. Sutherland with great coolness put the rope around his own neck, gave it a poll to ascer- tain if it was fast to the beam and examined its length, SLC. Every thing being adjusted, he appeared, from the supplicatory motion of his ham's, to he for a moment en- gaged in' prayer : after which he gave the signal, when the drop instantly fell, and they were launched into eter- nity. The? were both young men, each about 26 years of age. before leaving the lock- up- house, Sutherland observed, that it was well for hitn he bad to die now ; he must die some time, and were he to live ever so long, he could not give up his vicious practices. He wrote a few lines to his wife, who is at present in confinement in Bridewell, ( a place she is no stranger to), for passing counterfeit coin. rennie read nor write. Sutherland was a native of this city. BIRTHS. Tiv Hope Street, on the24ih inst. the Hon. Mrs. peter Ramsay of a son. At Parkhouse, on the 2- lth inst. mrs. Gordon, of a daughter. Oil the 22d inst.

WE cannot help considering the events that have lately taken place in the Metropolis as ofthe most alarming nature, evidently widening the breach be- tween the English people and the Government, and as certainly threatening interruption of the public peace. The blood wantonly and unnecessarily shed at the funeral of her Majesty, bad excited e re at in- dignation, and the conduct of the Life Guards had called forth expressions of abhorrence from all ranks ; but had every facility been afforded for bringing the guiltv to condign punishment, a fair investigation proceeding without interruption, according to the usages and laws of England— had the conduct of the military met with due censure in general orders, the public would 110 doubt have been satisfied. \\ c are sorrv to sav, however, that our high authorities adopted a course of proceeding widely different, and theinquest beldiipon the body of R ICHARD HONEY, shot bv one ofthe officers upon the occasion men- tioned, has been attended by circumstances altoge- ther without example in our times. We have always believed, that in England, when an inquest is held upon the body of one who has died a violent death, the Coroner has full power to call for the co- operation of all authorities, that may be neces- sary in order to investigate the facts, and identify the persons of those accused of murder. But there appeared in the case under consideration, no great " degree of alacrity on the part of the Coroner to pro- ceed decisively against the accused. He, indeed', upon the requisition of the Jurv, made application to the proper authority, ihat the Life Guards, or- dered out at her Majesty's funeral, should be drawn 1 1 2 2 ford. 4 y. o. ... .. ... ...

The Scheme contains the following Capitals: 3 PK ZUS of £; fAt, im ! up ill the same habiliments they wore upon that oc- casion, that the witnesses might have an opportu- i illty of identifying the officer who deliberately fired ; at RICHARD HONEY; and they also requested, j that the Jurv might be permitted to accompany the j witnesses The Jury, from the evidence already before them, evidently had come to the conclusion that the deceased was murdered, or that highly cul - pable manslaughter had been committed ; for, had they believed that HONEY came bv his death in consequence of the discharge of a necessary duty on the part ofthe military, they could have no reason for wishing to identify tbc accused, as by their ver- dict he would not come upon his trial. With this impression upon their minds nothing could be more reasonable, than that the accused should be iden- tified, and that the Jury should see the deportment of the witnesses, and other parties concerned. Our readers will from the details, which are as ample as our limits will permit, see what obstacles were thrown in the way, to render the identification ofthe accused extremely difficult, if not impracticable.— Tiiey will see that the witnesses were kept prisoners by the military during a long time, and such of the Jurors as had entered the Barrack Yard were as- saulted by the soldiers, maltreated and turned out, while Magistrates from Bow Street, who had not the least right to be present, or to interfere in the investigation, were upon the spot putting questions to the witnesses, upon whose evidence the Coroner's Jurv was to decide. The whole circumstances at- tending this investigation at the Barrack— the putt- ing off the inspection till the light began to fail— the muffling up the soldiers in cloaks— and the gross in- solence of both officers and soldiers to the Jurv— are of a character not to be mistaken. i he laws have been openly insulted, and the guilty appear to be very little apprehensive of deserved punishment. In such cases, if the boasted Constitution of Eng- land aflbrd Englishmen no remedv, the conclusion is evident, that either it has its defects, or may be acted upon or not, just as it may please the partv in power. The act of the soldiers has been charac- terized by the verdict of the Coroner's Jury, of wilful murder by a Life Guardsman unknown, in the case of FRANCIS ; and from the evidence already given, the murder was deliberate in the case of HONEY ; but whether the guilty shall be identified seems very doubtful indeed. That the soldiers know the individuals who fired the fatal shots is not to be doubted, but as partlcipes crimiiiis they may refuse to answer interrogatories ; but iit any rate, the orders given to the soldiers may be ascertained, and that is a point of very great importance. It is much to be regretted, that the funerals of HONEY and FRANCIS were made public ; but we rejoice to find, that the people were not the aggres sors in the tumult that took place. Mr Sheriff WAITIIMAN'S conduct upon the occasion was ad- mirable, and he carried conciliation perhaps farther than was altogether consistent with the authority and dignity, of his office, although insulted and threatened in the most brutal manner by the su- ldiers. It is a common rule with the public journals, to abstain from publishing any comments upon legal proceedings until these proceedings are terminated ; and the rule is unquestionably right, while legal pro- ceedings are unobstructed ; but when a Coroner's Jury is insulted in the discharge of their duty, and even assaulted by the military, and a military officer dares to resist the authority of the High Sheriff of London and Middlesex in the conservation of the public peace, it is the duty of the public press to give publicity to the facts, that the people may know under what government they live. As vet, we believe, no notice has been taken in General Orders of the conduct ofthe Life Guards upon the 14th or 26t! i of August; we shall see whether his Majesty's counsellors will advise him to return thanks to these officers and soldiers, for the proper dis- charge of their duty. she swears positively is WILLIAM AUSTIN, now ( ISOfi) living under the protection of the Princess." We trust Dr. Lushington, upon his return, will | bring this fabricator of base slanders before ail Eng- lish Jurv ; and if possible, find out under what pa- tronage he acls. The details of the proceedings in Ireland are much of the same nature with those our readers have already seen. His Majesty seems to be much more comfortable in associating with the Irish, than the English. In London, he seldom appears in the streets ; but when he does, always surrounded by troops. In Dublin, troops tire not at all necessary, and he declares his heart to have been always Irish. What inferences the English may draw from this we cannot tell ; but we presume, the)' will not give up thetr claim to as thorough a knowledge of his Majesty's character and conduct as the Irish can possibly possess.

There is every appearance of abundance, and the prices of grain continue to fall. In this part of the country, the grain crop is ripening rather slowly, but that of potatoes is abundant, and of good quality— The sales of cattle have been considerable during the last fortnight ; but prices remain unimproved.

INVERNESS, Aug. 22— THE BRTIUANT STEAM YACHT arrived here about half- past eight o'clock on Wed- nesday evening. The beach was lined with spectators, who were highly gtatified hi t! w majestic appearance of this fine vessel gliding along tiie glassy surface of the water. She performed the distance between Fort George and this placc, against the ebb tide, in an hour ; andl- rossed from. Nairn tt, Cromarty in less time. She remai- ed at Peter- head on Tuesday night ; and. including calls at the in- termediate ports, took only 29 hours to the voyage t": Y! M Newhaven. She lay at anchor in Kesscck roads yeste.-^ av, and the public curiosity was so intense, that her deci. were crowded by all tanks and ages from an early hour in the morning, and were whh difficulty cleared v.- hcl surrounding objects were enveloped in darkness. The cabins are elegantly fitted up, and every part of the vessel well suited to its purpose. LONGEVITY. The following extraordinary in- stances of longevity have occurred in three contiguous parishes in this county, where the following persons have lately died : Parish of Logie Buchail. Widow Hutcheon, aged 92 ; Parish of Ellon, Jean Brown, aged 100; and in Cruden, John Tawse. at the very advanced age of 106'; both the last, in particular, retaining their faculties tj tlics last nearly unimpaired. At Matytnass Market of Ellon, held on Wednesday hist, there was a very fine shew of Black Cattle, and a great number of dealers present, from all quarters; the tSale was very extensive in consequence, and continued for some time with brisknesfe almost unprecedented, bu< prices were very littleadvanced. On Wednesday last, the body of the young man, Mori- son, who was unfortunately drowned by the upsetting of a boat in this Bay. on the i'Sth July, as then stated, was found near Stonehaven, and next day brought to this place for interment.

Present Subscribers, We imagined that the infamous Journal which has been so extensively patronised by Courtiers and Tories fur its disgusting calumnies against the QUEEN, would have cause to regret her death. We naturally supposed that the wretches who prostituted their pens, to gratify the in- clinations of their patrons, would see the propriety of pay- ing so much deference to the common feeling of mankind, as to allow her MAJESTY'S ashes to remain undisturbed, and that their trade would, thei- efuie, be iu a great mca- The Treasurer of the Sick Man's Friend has received E. 21 IS-.. 44d. sterling, as the amount of a collection made at a Sermon preached by the Rev.

Tuesday, the United Meeting of tile Nobilily and Gentry of the Counties of Aberdeen, Forfar. Kincardine, and Banff, commenced here, and continued, as usual, on the three . days following. The Company, although not numerous, was highly respectable, and the absence of some ofthe Noblemen and Gentlemen, whom we have been accustomed to see on this occasion, was perhaps partly owing to the Shooting Season in some measure interfering, from the earlier period at which the Meeting had been fixed. The Ordinaries anil Balls at ANDERSON'S and DEMPSTER'S were graced by* brilliant and fashionable assemblage, and went off in excellent style. The sports ot tile Turf, for which the weather was highly favourable, were on ' he whole very gratifying to the vast concourse of all ranks assembled : and the week's amusement alto- gether. proved a scene of gaiety and enjoyment to the Company present, to which the affability and polite at- tention of the Noble President and Stewards present, as- sisted bv the admirable arrangements of the Hon. Colonel RAMSAY, mainly contributed. The following are the particulars, of the Races, some of which were excellent and well contested.

Many on their first visit have said—" this is very satisfactory indeed, but to have all the advantage " and pleasure which such a collection is capable of afford- " ing, we must repeat our visits, to examine more par. " ticularly, and in many instances to admire." The col- lection exhibited, fully " warrants this observation, for the Pictures and Drawings far exceed in number, and qualify, what was at first expected, and, of course, evinces a degree of ardour in the Contributors, highly commend- able. Several additional Pictures, we observe, have been recently sent in, mil others expected— so that the lov-. rs of the Art are likely to be gratified w ith a continued- ex- tension of the Collection, as long as the Exhibition is kept open-- tind as long as there is room. In a Provincial Exhibi- tion, and on its first opening, this is exactly what should be wished for. The primary object being to excite a taste for the delightful study of Drawing, applicable to so many purposes in common life— and to point out the advantages to be derived from it, followed as a necessary branch of education.

Mr. Sheriff WVlihman used every exertion, and adopted every means to prevent it. The injury done, we are happy however to find, has been greatly exaggerated. In this state of mutual irritation, would it not be advis- able to remove the soldiers to other quarters ? [ Particu- lars in our next.] THE QUEEN'S REMAINS. HARWICH, Aug 2j.__. Xhe C^ s'ler- ea^ h packet hi* just arrived from Cuxhaven. I have in consequence learnt that tbe Glasgow frigate, containing the body of the late Queen, together with the other ships of war which formed the convoy, reached Cuxhaven on Sunday last. Her Majesty's remains were immediately taken from on board the Glasgow, and placed in the Wye The latter vessel shortly after sailed for Stadt with the Royal corpse, ac- companied by the Gannett sloop of war, having on board her late Majesty's carriage, and such of her servants as have been permitted to attend the funeral. It was sup- posed that these ships would reach Sradt on Monday. Lord and Lady Hood and Lady Ann Hamilton landed-' from the Glasgow, at Cuxhaven, on Sunday, and set off by land to meet the Royal corpse at Sfadt. The Earl of Leicester packet, with Mr. Alderman Wood, and a num- ber of other passengers on board, was seen at no great distance from Cuxhaven, which place it was expected to reach on Monday. 8FADE, Aug. 20.— All preparations are made here to receive in a becoming manner the body of the Queen.

A battalion of the 6th regiment is ordered here from Stade to Brun$ hausen, to escort thq Royal remains. A very handsome Monument is to be immediately erect- ed in Hammersmith Church to the rnenory of her Ma- iVsiy. The subscription proceeds rapidly, and does hon- our lo the grateful feelings of the inhabitants. ' HIT at an end. It seems, ttowover. vo entertained a more favourable opinion of John Bull. and the patruiis of John Bull, than they deserve. In no former number, is so much rancorous abuse heaped on this deeply injured Lady, as in that of yesterday. One calumny of a most atrocious nature is several times repeated with a confidence, which might deceive persons not acquainted with the audacity with which this journal lends itself to the grossest falsehoods. It is alleged til it the QUEEN disclosed to Dr. I. USHINGTON. in the presence of four other j etsons. that WL ML AM AUSTIN was her own son, and that this disclosure was communicated bv Or. LusutNGToN to the Earl of LIVERPOOL. In an affidavit lately made before Mr. Alderman VENABLES by a person of the name of WHITAKER, respecting the manner in which he had heen treated by some Life Guard soldiers, it was stated that a scrjeaut " made use of the most filthy and beastly language respecting the late QUEEN and Alderman WOOD, and said the Utter was a disappointed Radical, in consequence of the QUEIN leaving him nothing in her will ; and that the QUEEN on her death- bed had admitted that WII. UAM AUSTIN was her son. I replied flatly that it was a downright falsehood." " Flatly enough," says this calumnious Journal, " for how should WIIITAKER know? Yfc will swear that WOOD is a disappointed Ra- dical; and we do not believe, that ( although) l) r. Lt s- HINGTON and four other persons who were in the room at ihe time with him, will deny either roundly or flatly, as Mr. WNITAKEIT did, the QUEEN'S admission about HIM. V." In another paragraph the falsehood is stated even more circumstantially. That Dr. LUSHINGTON, if a disclosure of this kind had been made to him. would exert himself as he has done, to affix on her Majesty's coffin the inscription in w hich she is termed an injured QUEEN, will be believed by none w ho know any thing of his character. But Dr. I. CSHINCTON is at ibis time out ofthe country— and the vile calumniator has availed himself of his absence, in the hope that before the lie can be contradicted by him, it may obtain ail ex- tensive circulation. ' I hus far wc copy from the Morning Chro? iic! e, but we think" it our duty shortly to state the filets, as they stand upon record, concerning WILLIAM AUSTIN. The Lords Commissioners appointed by his lats Majesty, to inquire into the truth of the allegations of the DOUGLASSES and others, report— " That her Majesty could not possibly have been pregnant at Ihe time, when Lady DOUGLAS posi- tively swore thai she was, and that every part of her allegations had been most satisfactorily disproved.— They affix to their Report the depositions of the superintendents of Brownlow Street Lving- in Hospi- tal, that the Princess of Wales sent to that establish- ment, wishing to know whether any of the women lately delivered would consent to part with a child, as she wished to rear one, promising that every care should be taken of it, and the parents from time to time permitted to see it." Then follows the affidavit of SOPHIA AUSTIN—•' that she was delivered of a Boy in that Hospital, which she agreed to resign to the care of the Princess ; that the child had a na- tural mark when born upon its right hand ; that she called frequently at Blackheath and saw hersOn, who B.
