And found the Boot boy in his shed asleep— Tom saw ' twas WAMIKN'S Blacking he was using, And fancied he could play some trick amusing ; So out again with Boot and Brush did creep. Tom polish'd hngh't the Boot—( but I'd forgot • To say ' twas night when Tom arrang'd his plot.)— And plac'd the Boot and Candle on the table. Just facinsr the poor Boot- boy ; then he hallo'd " l'ire !" till the whole house him soon follow'd. And " fire !" ccho'd, loud as each was able. The Boy upstarting, " fire!" echo'd too, For the reflected Candle met his view, Reflected from the Boot a thousand fold ; Tie shouted, stamp'd, and cried, and out he run, " While chuckling King exulted at the fun ; And when he'd had enough, the tale he told.

Aberdeen, August 27, 1821. On Stlnday [ as stated in our last,] being the day on wldch it bad been announced t[ list a public funeral should take place, when the bodies of the two unfortunate victims of military violence should lie escorted from Smith field to Hammersmith, the object being, as the placard stated, to shew the world how solemnly, respectfully and peace- ably the people of London, had they not been interrupted, would have conducted the remains of the magnanimous, grossly calumniated and persecuted Caroline, through this great metropolis." . A deep and painful interest appeared > 0 lie extited in tkepublic mind. This feeling was not unmingled With some degtee of alarm. The procession was this day to pass the Itarracks which contained the mur- derer of one of the deceased, as had been recently declared by ( he verdict of a jury— a Circumstance of itself sufficient- ly calculated to rouse the indignation ofthe people; and in addition to this, every effort had been made by the Mi- nisterial journals to impress the publte With a belief that the promoters of this funeral had no other object than that of exciting tumult and disturbance. The scene at Kings- (* MC Street was truly solemn and aSecting. The heprse, containing the body of the murdered Francis, was fol- lowed by four mourning coaches, in which were the widow and her three orphans, with the relatives of the deceased, the procession was drawn up in- the rear; consisting of abodt one hundred and fifty bricklayers, two by two, all most respectably, attired, and most df them in - decent mourning. Tire refusal of the Committee to connect themselves with Dr. Watson, and his party, had given a character of respectability and even of dignity to their proceedings,, which could not have belonged to them, had they been supposed to originate in factious views. There was nothing of ostentation or parade in the procession ; there was no studied appeal to the passions; no elaborate attempt at producing effect; it was simple, solemn, and affecting. It was evidently a sincere and heartfelt tribute of affection ant! grief on the part of those useful mechan ics, of affection for the memory, and of grief at the fate of their comrade, of whose humble services his family and the country bad been deprived by an act of lawless viol- ence and barbarity. When the procession reached Soho- square, it appeared that owing to some misunderstanding as to the. place of meeting, the other procession had already set out and jjroceeded down Oxford Street, with an inten- tion of passing through Grosvenor- square. When it had advanced a little way down Oxford Street, it was joined by a club of well- dressed and orderly . persons, two and two; tlicy foimed in front, preceded by two flags and a band of music; one of the flags was crimson, and the other blue, and were decorated in the usual style of flags borne by friendly societies ; one of thnn bad the inscrip- tion, " Let justice guide the. Scales," the other that, of " The Provident Brothers ;" while this party preceded the funeral, their band played the" Dead March In Saul.* They entered Grosvenor- square by North Audley Street, anil were then joined by the funeral procession of ". Francis, which had come by the way of Oxford Street and Duke Street ; both then proceeded in one line across the square into South Audley Street, and down Park Lane, towards Hyde Park Corner. Nothing could exceed the. gom! order with which the becoming and solemn arrangement of the funeral line was preserved, or the tranquil and dec'orous cdnduct of the vast multitude by whom it was accompanied. About this time tile number of persons- collected was not lefts than 40,000, and the crowd was still swelling like a river fVom its tributary streams, as it pursued its melancho- ly progress. The procession having reached Hammersmith, the body of Honey was taken into the church, and the funeral ser- vice was read over it. The pulpit of the church was hung with black, as were tire galleries in trojtt ( if it. file pew occupied by her late Majesty who also hung with black, and in front were the letters C. R. In this box were de- posited the flags of the Bricklayers and Carpenters' Com- panies during the funeral service. When the body of Francis arrived it was taken into the church, and the usual service read over it. Both coflins were put into the same grave ( a very deep one.) The inscription on Fran- cis's coffin stated, " that he had been killed by a pistol shot while attending the funeral of her late Majestv." The inscription on Honey's coffin, we understood, stated his having been killed by some one of the Life Guards, un- known to the Coroner's Jury, while attending the same , i ... • , 4 Kt,;; t ; , 7. : • I • • r -< of the Life Guards nt Jfiiigbtsbridge yesterday, and of ao- attempt° at assassination upon me personally, Vrhile'in the exercise of my duty as- Sheriff of Middlesex, at tUp head of the- i ivil power of the county. Your Lordship thought" proper to direct ^ he Lord Mayor on Saturday, to take the necessary measures to preserve the peace ofthe City during the intended funeral of Hottey and Francis ; and although' no such caution was addressed to the Sheriff, as Conservator of the public peace ofthe county I felt it toy duty to direct the Deputy Sheriffs of the City and County to order out the constables of the divisions nearest to, and through which the fun- eral was expected to pass ; and also to attend in person with proper officers, to prevent or quell any tumult Jr dis- order. , -- ' '' >> Conceiving, that under the existing irritation of tha people, and the circumstances for which they had assem- bled, some insult mittlvt be offered to the Life Guard, in their barracks, I disposed of the constables chiefly in that vicinity* and actually ranged a body of thorn in front ot" the barracks, with instructions to apprehend every indivi- dual who should attempt to commit any act of outrage or disorder. The funeral, in Consequence of these precautions, parsed the barracks in an orderly and quiet manner, marked by no other peculiar circumstance, than that of a brick being thrown from th? barracks, which fell near my horse, and wounded, as I am informed, a young girl. My admonitions, and the presence of the constables suc- ceeded. however, in repressing the irritation this wantou act was calculated to excite. When the procession hud passed, and while the road continued to be crow- ded with people,- the gates of the' barracks were thrown open; and the avenue* filled with the soldiers. The people, as might have been foreseen, gathered round tlie spot, and expressed their displeasure. A tumult seemed inevitable 1 requested to speak with the Oificer on duty, but without effect, and, at length, by repeated expostulations with the soldiers, I succeeded in prevailing upon them to retire and c! o$ e the gates. - • Some time after, upon returning to the same spot, I saw a number ef soldiers running from St> e wicket - • and pursi. ing the people on the causeway. Finding ail affray actually commenced, I sprung my horse upon the causeway, interposed between the parties and succeeded in separating them. • Wbi'e thus engaged, a soldier, with whom I had before been expostulating, and who was therefore acquainted With my official station, started for- ward at a mail and knocked him down. At the same time, whilst using my utmost endeavours to prevail upnri the fcoldiers to retire into the barracks, and the people to desist and keep the peace, the bridle of my horse was violently seized, on the one side by a young officer in uti- dress, and on the other by the soldier whose violence I had just noticed, who together endeavoured to throw my horse over the causeway : and I only succeeded in extri- ! eating myself by striking the soldier with my stick, and i making my horse plunge. Inrmediately several of the soldiers rushed at me with their swords drawn; and one actually loaded his carbine, and directed it towards me; but was, as I haye- been informed, knocked down by one of the. constables. Further mischief'was prevented by the interposition of some military officers of higher authority, and the soldiers at length retired into their barracks. My Lord, these circumstances require no comment. At a critical conjuncture th* 4 soldiers were left to their ' Own exasperated feeling; and manifested a lawless spirit. The Civil Power under my direction was fully adequate fur the preservation of the peace among the people, but not to encounter an armed soldiery. I had no cominuni-/ cation from his Majesty's Government, nor coukl I obtain an interview with any ofthe officersof the regiment ; and when T directed some of the constables to represent to the officers in the most respectful terms, my desire that the soldiers should be kept within the' barracks;, the message returned was, " that the Sheriff might bed— d, they would not make their- men prisoners for him ;"- and I feel assured, that bud I not interposed with the Ci vil Power, and even risked my own life, a frightful- slaughter must have ensued, Of subordination to civil authority the soldiery appeared to be wholly unconscious, and that authority, io my per- son, was repeatedly insulted and grossly outraged. It would, my Lord, be as needless as presumptuous in me, to attempt to instruct your Lordship and his Ma- jesty's Government in the nature of the Constitutional Authority under which I attended yesterday, or the right I possessed in my official character todiave claimed the aid CHEAP AND EXPEDITIOUS TRAVELLING BETWEEN ABERDEEN AND LEITH.

WAITHMAN. Bridge Street. Aug 27, 1821. The Rt. Hon. Earl Bathurst, & c. & c. procession. As the several persons who returned from the funeral passed Knightsbridge Barracks, they hissed and booted the Life Guards, who were in the windows, laughing at the people, but no injury was attempted, nor was any likely to take place, as the barrack gates were shut, so that neither party could get at the other. In a short time, however, ( between six and seven o'clock.) it was found that some of the Life Guards, unarmed, had got among the people. After a few hissings and hootings a general engagement took place, and the Life Guards, though they fought boldly with their fists, and a few w ith sticks, were severely pressed by the crowd, who not only struck at but pelted them with stones. Bv this time the soldiers in the barracks found that their comrades were attacked, and several of them, some armed with slicks, leaped over the barrack- wall. The engagement now raged more furiously than ever. One Life Guardsman ( in an undress) armed with a stick about three feet long, sallied among the crowd and did wonderful execution. We cannot help saying, that the boldness of this indivi- dual was worthy of a better cause ; be rushed into the midst ofthe throng, ( who were pelting stones), and with his stick laid at least about a dozen of the assailants on the ground. The affray, however, continued, and was likely to end in the defeat of the soldiery, ( who had no arms), when the front gate of Knightsbridge barracks were forced open, and out came 14 or 20 Life Guards- men on foot, with swords ill their hands. Thev rushed upon the people, and the attack now became general There were several thousands of people on the road, among whom were a great number of females. The Life Guardsmen were cutting at all indiscriminately, when Mr. Sheriff Waithman rude ( at considerable risk) upon the footway, amidst some of the armed soldiers, and de- sired them to desist. Mr. Waithman's bridle was im- mediately seized by a gentleman in coloured clothes, w ho was said to be an officer belonging to the regiment, and while be ( Mr. Waithman) was representing to that gentleman tile impropriety of allowing the soldiers to re- main in the streets oil such an occasion, a soldier of the Life Guards seized his bridle on the offside, and said, " d— n him, we will let bun know what is the footway." The soldier was about to press Mr. Waitbman's horse off EARI, BATIIUttST TO MR. SHERIFF WAITHMANV Whitehall,. Aug. 2d, 1821. SIR— I have to acknowledge the receipt of ypur. lctVr of the 27th inst. relative to ri riot which took place at Knightsbridge on Sunday last. I had, before the receipt of your letter, given directions for an inquiry to bo made into the circumstances of this transaction, in consequence of representations made to me, which I am hound to say differ in many essential particu- lars from the statement which I have received from you. I cannot refrain from expressing my regret and surprise that " when the civil power un- dcf your direction was fully adequate ( as you state) for the preservation of the peace among the people," a mob should have beert permitted to remain in a continued state of riot, after the soldiers had been withdrawn within their, barfacks, until the Riot Act was read by Mr. €* nant, and the risers dispersed by the Peace officers under his immediate orders ; and I do not understand that in the execution of this duty he received any assistance from you. I am. Sir, your most obedient bumble Servant Mr. Sheriff Waithman. BATHCJUST the footway into the road, when Mr. W. struck him for- cibly with his cane. A scuffle was about to ensue, when the people interfered, aud the worthy Sheriff was pro- tected. While this scene was passing, a soldier, who had been seen to load his carbine, was about to present it at Mr. Sheriff Waithman, when ire was prevented bv a Sheriff' s Officer, named Levi, who struck his carbine down. We cannot close this account without stating, that very great praise is doe to the exertions of Mr. Sheriff Waith- j man ; that gentleman, by his prompt and decided con- duct, was the means of preventing much bloodshed and confusion ; were it not for his exertions, it is impossible to say to what extent the riots- between the people and the military would have g" ne. The worthy Sheriff was repeatedly cheered by the people as he returned home. AFFRAY AT KNIGIITSBRIDGE. 111 consequence of the circumstances which took jilace at Knightsbridge on Sunday afternoon, Mr. Sheriff Waithman lias addressed the following letter , ' to Lord iiatliurst:— My LOUD— I consider it my duty to apprise his Ma- iesiy's Government, through your Lordship, of a violent uuu a^ e of the I'ttblic peace rummiUed by some individuals MR. SHERIFF WAITHMANT TO EAFTT, BATHUR. 1T. MY LORD— As my object in the representation I had the honour to make to his Majesty's Government tbrouWt your Lhrdship. of the circumstances of the affray which occurred within my own observation at Kuightsbridge on Sunday, was the performance of what appeared lo mo to bean indispensable duty, your Lordship's note acknow- ledging the receipt of the communication wonld seem to require no reply, more especially as your Lordship inti- mates that you have given directions for an inquiry into the circumstances of this transaction , and although bound to acknowledge your Lordship's candour in commuuicat-/ ing the receipt of representations which differ it, many es- sential particulars from nty statement, I should ! iave ed in confidence upon the result of that inquiry, establish- ing the facts I had the honour to represent to yor. r [ jL> rd- sbip. It appears, however, highly important to that inquiry that I should expbin to yum Lord ship, that although t w. ls on ihe spot lor nearly nine hours, and did not retire till I had assured myself, by riding about in different di- rections for about an hour and a half after - the affray with tile military, that tranquillity was perfectly tefcurid, no Uioi Aet was read within my hearing or knowledge at or near Knightsbridge Barracks oh Sunday lost; it. then*, for. e, the Kiel Act was read by Mr. Conant, and the rio- ters dispersed by ihe peace officers under bis orders, your Lordship will perceive that this must have arisen from some new and distinct disturbance, and Was not the con- sequence, of the mob » being permitted to rem. tin in « continued state of riot after the s » ldiers had wish. drawn within their barrncks." Du ring the whole period I was in the vicinity, I neither aaw nor heard of the at- tendance of any Magistrate ; and your Lordship cannot but feel equal surprise with thyself, that the High Sheriff of the County, at the head of the civil power, shoiild have received Neither assistance nor communication from Mr. Conantorany other Magistrate. The representation I had the hondurto forward to your Lordship, stated a gross Violation of- the public peace and Hiring outrage upon the civil power by the Life Guards at six ovclock, the circumstances of which T need not re- pea/, and your Lordship's reply appears to have reference b: iiv" to some unforeseen occurrences two hours afterwards, " and consequently could not have provoked the previous as- sault. by the soldiery, and which therefore neither con- cerns me nor the subject of the complaint, which st'ill re- mains the same, and demands rigorous inquiry and exemp- lary satisfaction. I have the honour to be. my Lord, Your Lordship's humble servant, Bridge- street, Aug 26, 1821. R. W A ITU MAN. The Right Hon. Earl Bathurst, & c. IVQUEST ON RICHARD HONEY, & c. [ An account of the treatment of the witnesses in the barrack has" been published by one of the number, from which the following particulars are extracted : — When the witnesses? got inside the gates they were much ques- tioned by Messrs. Birnie. Rainsford, and Stafford, ( of Bow- street) and much eyed by the crown witnesses who had pencil and paper. They were then conducted to a little wash- house, about 12 feet square, on the ground floor, where, before two o'clock, more than 20 witnesses were assembled, ready to faint with heat. In this dog hole they were kept by the. soldiers; and when some, almost suffocated, attempted to rush out into the bpen air, they were violently forced in again by the guards.— At length, by sending messages to Mr. Birnie, they got permission to w « dk in the riding- school. About five o'clock ( all this time they had nothing but a little water) they returned to the wash- house. " The trumpet sounded, ' and the troops passed by to the barrack- yard. As an officer passed, the door of the witnesses' room was sud- denly closed, and some of the soldiers stood by the win- dow to prevent the witnesses from seeing him ; the cir- cumstance excited great curiosity, and the witness got upon a table to look through the window, and Spratt, one op the witnesses, exclaimed—' By G— d, that is the man ,1 saw fire twice, I can swear!' and several of the wit- nesses recognised the officer." When Spratt afterwards examined the troops, a serjeant- major rushed up the yard, exclaiming, 4 By G—, he has picked out his man at l ist!'| FIFTH DAY, ( WEDNESDAY.) The Jury met at two o'clock. Thomas Etnan, Adjutant of the regiment of Life Guards, attended in pursuance of the Coroner's summons, lie did not bring the muster- roll with him, because the stations of the troops on the 14th were not stated in it.— ( Witness produced the order from Sir II. Baker for the turning out of the squadron in Hyde Park.) The squadron consisted of 50 men, commanded by Captain Oakes, Lieutenants Terry and Gore. Witness saw the inspection yesterday, but saw nothing of any insults offer- ed to the Jury, or any ill treatment of the witnesses.— The whole regiment, and not merely the squadron on duty on the 14th, was drawn out. A Juror— But I understood . that none of the troop were to be drawn out except those on duty on the I4tb. Mr. Hanson— No such thing was understood, and it would have been extremely unfair. Mr. Waithman— Would it be possible to identify a felon, if you. dressed up 100 persons exactly like him. Richard Birnie, E-* q. Police Magistrate, deposed, that he attended at the barrack yesterday, with Mr, Rainsford of Queen- square office, by order of Government, to see . that the witnesses should have free access to examine the soldiers. They waited from two till half- past four, as Colonel Hill and the men were not to be turned out with- out further orders. At that time Sir H. Torrens arrived; and the men were soon after ordered out. Some of the witnesses were refused admission because their names were not marked on their tickets. Mr. Sheriff Waithman— Arc you aware, that some of the witnesses were turned back and refused after their names were inserted, and the beadle sent over with the witnesses to the barracks? Mr. Birnie—" If that be so. it must have been by the commanding officer." Witness did not take down any of the names of the officers pointed out by the witnesses ; he thought the Adjutant would take them down. He sup- posed Mr. Stafford the Clerk had written them. He knew none of the officers except Lieut. Storey. The commanding officer declared it contrary to his instructions to let a witness look twice at the same soldiers, but he ( Mr. Birnie) allowed those to do so who wanted. The witnesses did not all fix upon the same man ; by no nieans so : only two spoke positively to one officer. Francis Cole Humbert, the Royal Military Surveyor, was next called. He swore to the stones and brickbats flying " as thick as hail," of a soldierbeing knocked off' his horse ; but did not see the soldiers brandishing their swords, or cutting, or firing at any persons in par- ticular. Another witness, a porter at a house close to Cumber- land gate, spoke to the violence of the soldiers in riding about, cutting at, and trampling upon the people. His first observation of the afi'ray was, that the soldiers bran- dished their swords, and the people threw stones at the same time. The Jury then adjourned. SIXTH DAY. ( FRIDAY.) Mr. John Stafford, the Clerk of Bow- street, attended the inspection Tuesday last. He had gone with Mr; Birnie, to protect the witnesses, as he thought ; but he did fiot understand, that he was to take down officially what they said. However, he had made some memoranda in pencil to assist his memory, but he could not swear to the exact words, nor could he part with his book. Wit- ness then, in answer to the Jury, briefly described his impression of the manner in which the witnesses pointed rut individuals. Most of the witnesses, he said, either did not speak at all, or spoke very doubtingly of parti- cular soldiers. William Cleaver and William Alexander pointed out Lieutenant Gore. W. Spratt first looked very hard atone officer and then at another, as if in doubt which. M'Gowran pointed out Lieut. Cox. Thomas Eman, Adjutant, was examined as to the identification of the soldiers by the witnesses. Cleaver and Alexander ( the latter very positively) pointed out Lieutenant Gore as having shot Richard Honey. Wm Spratt looked hard at Lieut. Cox. whom M'Gowran also fixed upon. There is some resemblance between Lieuts. 6ox and Gore. Lieutenants Terry and Gore were out on duty on the 14th. Witness believed Lieutenant Gore was at Cumberland gate. Robert Rainer and Edward Scott gave evidence simi- lar to most of the former witnesses respecting the ag- gression of the soldiers in cutting at the people at the Park- gate. The latter witness saw a young officer fire towards Cumberland- gate, whence a cry of murder im- mediately came. The officer was thin, and about one or two and twenty. He had a foolish face, and was thick about the mouth ; his hair was light, and he had rather Jightish whiskers. ^ Thomas Rutherford, " batman." or ( servant) to Lieut. Gore, was examined as to that officer's dress when he left the Knightsbridge barracks on the 14th. He said he dressed his master on that day ; his mast- r wore no cloak, and had no pistols in his holsters. He had no whiskers. Witness had served him 1 8 months. A Juror— What colour is your master's hair, is it light or dark ? I do not know, I never took particular notice. Has he any hair at all ? Yes he has hair, but I cannot say what the Colour of it is. A Juror— I asked him the colour of his master's hair, whether it was light or dark. Witness— No. I beg your pardon, you asked me the colour of my master's hair. It is dark. Juror-^- Do you know your master's age ? No, Sir. Is he 15 or 2.5 ?—- I canlt say. Is he 16 ? I can't say. Js he 16 or 60 ? I can't say. Do you recollect whether your master has any whiskers © mot? 1 don't recollect. Christopher Forge, a corporal, was on duty at Cum- j berland- gate, on the 14th, with a party of 12, com- j wanded by Lieutenant Gore. When the funeral was ap- proaching, the soldiers attempted to open the gates, and ; iu ridii g through, witness's hort- e was so much cut in the neck, witness guessed with a knife, that be was obliged to ride away, and saw nothing more of the affray. Mr. Gore had no pistols with him : and no arms but his sword. His servant neglected to put the pistols in. Foreman— How do you know the servant, neglected the pistols? Because I heard him ( Mr. Gore) say, on raising the shavrague, to loolc for his cloak, he found that there was neither cloak nor pistols. It was I observ- ed that he had got no pistols, when he said he had no cloak. He had a ruddy complexion and a light one.— He is a healthy looking young man. The colour of his hair is light. I don't know whether he has whiskers or not ; he may, but I have not noticed. The moment that the soldiers attempted to open the gates, the stones were thrown. The soldiers'swords and stones were about all going together. SEVENTH DAY. At two o'clock yesterday the business of this Inquest was resumed. In addition to the persons present on the former days, Mr. Adolphus attended. The Coroner observed that Sir R. B. iker was in attend- ance. and it would be convenient for him to be called first. Sir R. Baker was then called in.— I joined the proces- sion on the day of Queen's funeral at Kensington ; it was proposed that it should go up Church- lane, the Gravel- pits, TybUrn- turupike, the Edgware- road, and the New- road. It did not pursue that Jine, on account of obstruc- tions which had been placed at the end of Church Street, Kensington. I proceeded on to the Park- gate at Ken- sington ; considering myself at liberty to take the nearest route to that which had been prescribed, in case of any of the turnings which were intended to have been taken being obstructed. When we got to the Park- gate, at Kensing- ton, a party of the Life Guards came out through the Park iu aid of the Civil Power. I rode into the Park with the intention that the procession should follow me, and the gates were immediately closed by the mob. A few constables were there endeavouring to open them, but they were immediately overpowered by the mob, and the gates were again shut. Some of the Life Guards then endeavoured to force the gates, when the mob imme- diately began to pelt them with stones and mud. and after a conflict fpr a considerable time, I succeeded in getting through the gate with my horse. Considering that it would be very dangerous to the attendants in the proces- s on in the carriages, to pass through the gates while that conflict was going on. I consented that the procession should move forward through Knightsbridge, and ac- cordingly it did so to Hyde Park- corner. When we got there I found the Park gate obstructed by carriages, and also the end of Park- lane to which I advanced ; I stopped there whilst the commanding officer of the Life Guards sent down to the Horse Guards for further orders ; after I had been there some time I was informed that the gate of Hyde Park had been opened, and that the hearse and the carriages which followed it had been turned into the Park ; I therefore turned up Downing Street, with two or three of the carriages which had preceded the hearse ; I got into the Perk at Chesterfield gate, and overtook the other part of the procession ; I rode up the Park, and heard the report of pistols towards Tyburn Turnpike ; before I got to Cumberland gate those reports had ceased, and the procession was moving on the Edgware road ; I saw some pieces of limber and an iron post lying in the road, as if they had been placed there to cause an impe- diment ; I passed on, but perhaps it is of no use to go 4' urther. Coroner.-— No ; we need not trouble you to go further. By a Juror.— He did not read the Riot Act, nor any other Magistrate that he knew of ; nor did the soldiers fire by his orders. By a Juror— I was sent for to Kensington, in conse- quence of the obstruction which had taken place there ; the military by my orders went out to aid the civil power. A Juror asked what were Sir R. Baker's instructions, and from whom he received them ? Sir R. Baker.—. The Commander of the Escort had the orders as to the route. You have told us you did not read the Riot Act; did you see no necessity for reading it ? Witness. I will tell you the reason why I did not read it. Because the effect of reading the Riot Act would have been to make it a capital felony for any person to remain upon the spot after one hour had elapsed from the time of reading it, and I had no intention of sitting for an hour in any given place for that purpose; it being my object to get the proces- sion on as quickly and as quietly as I could. The con- ducting of the escort belonged to the military, and not to me, and I had no orders originally about it, except that when I tame to Kensington, I was to go as near to tjie original route as I could. Part of Croney's evidence was read over, and the exa- mination of witness was resumed.--* » • Witness. I said I will take upon myself the responsibility of deviating from the route, if it should be necessary, but I did not use the ex- pressions if any thing was done or happened. I do not know Mr. Greig ; there was a person on horseback who was particularly anxious about the procession going on to the city, and who frequently came up and addressed me ; I did tell him that I thought we should be obliged to go through the city, and that if we did so we must pass down St. James's Street and Pall- mall, as it was market day in the Hay market, and the streets would be blocked up with carts. I do not recollect his saying any thing about Mr. Waithman or Mr. Hume, or Lord Hood, or giving him any authority to go and tell them. I wish further to explain, that I may not recollect the precise words I used, as at the time he addressed me there were generally five or six other persons talking to me on all sides. I did desire this person to use his influence to prevent any dis- turbance taking place at Carlton House. The intended line of the procession was never altered by the free will of the persons conducting it, but in obedience to a force, which, in my opinion, I could not resist without serious mischief to the soldiers, to the crowd, and to the persons attending in the pr. cession, many of whom were females, who had been shut up for hours in the carriages in a state of alarm. The witness's evidence was read over, and Sir R. Baker observed, in explanation, that he did not know originally whether the commanding officer had received any orders, but that he was subsequently informed that the officer had received peremptory orders to adhere strictly to the pres- cribed route ; he did not know whether it was the soldiers or the people that turned the hearse into the Park. A Juror. — Did you consider yourself at liberty to send for more soldiers if necessary ? I did. Henry Frederick Compton Cavendish, Lieut.- Colonel of the 1st Life Guards, sworn. He knew of the death of R. Iloney by report, not of his own knowledge ; Capt. Oakes commanded the chief detachmentof the Life Guards on duty on the Hth of August. Lieut Storey and Sub- Lieut. Hall were under his command ; there were five de- tachments besides; one under Lieut. Terry, that was sta- tioned at Kensington Park- gate; all the detachments went out about the same time ; a corporal commanded at Hyde Park Corner- gate ; time was a detachment at Cumberland- gate, commanded by Lieut, Gore ; it con- sisted of twelve or thirteen men, corporal and trumpeter included ; a corporal commanded at Stanhope Sireet ; another corporal at Grosvenor- gate ; there was no officer assisting Lieut. Terry at Kensington- gate to my know- ledge ; there was no officer to assist Lieut. Gore at Cum- berland- gate to my knowledge; Lieut. Terry came in from Kensington- gate, and I sent him on a message down to Captain Oakes, and Captain O. was then in Piccadilly, near Hyde Park Corner, at least that was the place where I sent him to find him ; I am not certain of the name of the trumpeter attached to the II troop who was with Lieut. Gore's detachment ; he did not know whether Hyde Park Corner gate was shut. Were there special orders given to the officers, on their leaving the barracks on that day, that they were to act under the civil power ? Yes. Lieut. Gore is a young man, tall, dark rather than otherwise, his hair about the colour of the Juryman who asked the question, ( a rather dark brown.) Lieut. Gore is qualified to carry pistols. I do not know how long he hasbeen dismissed by the riding master ; it was before I joined the regiment. I do not know that we have a trum- ! peter of the name of Farmer. I have only been in the re- ' giment three weeks or a month, and am not acquainted j with their names. I joined the regiment on the day of the ; Coronation. Examined by Mr. Adolphus— I saw most of the troops | go out on the morning of the 14tb. They were apparent- j ly well and free from hurts ; clean and properly accout- J red; their horses in good condition. When they came i back, 56 went to the hospital for different injuries, and j seven or eight remained in the hospital under cure.— | Their clothing was all over mud and dirt. It was report- I ed to me by the surgeon of the regiment; eight were \ absent from the next parade. I saw some of the horses; ; one I saw was cut under the nut. k, apparently with some ? sharp instrument Mr. Adolphus— fs Lieutenant Gore, in your opinion, a young officer perfectly competent? AH far as I have the means of forming an opinion perfectly so. Several of the Jurymen expressed themselves in very warm terms of the obstructions, thrown in the way of justice, by the concealment of the names of the soldiers present. Some of the Jurors declared their determina- tion to continue the investigation for a twelvemonth if it were necessary till they got at the names. Mr. Brown— Now, Colonel Cavendish, we ask you as a witness and an officer, who is the proper person to get at the names? 4 The Adjutant is the person, if any, but he cannot give you a correct list. Mr. Brq\ yn— We have had him already; The Foreman— It is of no use their attempting to con- ceal the offender, or to throw obstacles in enr way, for we are determined to probe the transaction to the bot- tom. A Juror— The officers have attempted to ridicule us, and to throw every impediment in our way, and to ob- struct the course of justice. If ignorant soldiers had done this, their ignorance might have been some pallia- tion of their conduct; their superior officers might have known better. A Juror— Do you know the name of the man whose horse was wounded ? Yes ; Ford. As soon as the witness's evidence was read over, a Juror ( Mr. Blaikie) addressed him to the following effect: " Colonel Cavendish, I cannot refrain from taking this opportunity of adverting to the conduct of a part of your regiment, which we, the Jury, attended at the gate of your barracks for the purpose of being admitted to be present at the inspection of your troop. We were on that occasion assailed and assaulted in a most outrageous man- ner, and against that outrage I now protest in the name of the Jury. You will have the kindness to make known to your officers and men how sensible we all are of that outrageous conduct, and that the reception we that day met with will long remain in our memories." The Foreman*—! am persuaded that the language of my brother Juryman conveys the unanimous sentiments of the Jury. The Jury, una voce— It is our unanimous opinion. A Juror— Colonel Cavendish was present at the time, and was the officer who ordered the soldiers to do their duty. Another Juror— That duty was, I suppose, to sabre us, if we did not obey. Colonel Cavendish wished to know whether the Jury would require his further attendance, as he had particular business in Derbyshire, and had only remained in town for the purposeof attending the inquest. A Juror— If we require your further attendance, we will let you know. Colonel Cavendish stated, that he was under the ne- cessity of leaving town, but that he should return on Saturday. He was allowed to withdraw. Some other witnesses were then called. A Juror observed, there were the four officers, who, it had been suggested by the Foreman, should have been summoned. The summons had not yet been issued, as there was a pause, the summons had better be directed to them now. There were witnesses who would identify them. Summonses were then made out for Captain Oakes, Lieutenants Hall, Storey, Gore, and Terry. The Inquest was then adjourned. EIGHTH DAY, ( WEDNESDAY.) Business began at half- past two. Mr. Adolphus did not attend, heitig elsewhere professionally engaged. Mr. Sheriff' Waithman was also absent. All the witnesses were in waiting for the purpose of identifying the officers summoned, should they arrive. Corporal John Heywood was the first witness. He said that the Life Guards were obliged to use great vio- lence against the people. The stones came in great cur- rents at the second shutting of the gates, the procession having then come up. He heard firing but did not see it. There was none where he was ; b J did not see a man fall. He remained for about twenty minutes after the proces- sion left. He heard no cry from the crowd of there go the two butchers together," alluding to the officer and trumpeter. He did not think that the horse could have been cut accidentally by a sabre. The name of the trum peter he believed was Bishop, aged from 16 to 20. He could not tell the names of the ten privates. The orderly corporal of the week might know. Lieut. Gore ordered the gates to be cleared when first shut.— By M'. Hanson. Violence was absolutely necessary. The firing did not begin till the witness got to Edgware road, but he was stunned and dizzy for two or three minutes. Three other officers came up with the procession to Cumberland- gate. The Coroner here mentioned the receipt of a letter from Colonel Lvgon, acknowledging that certain summonses had been given to various Life Guards. Those to the five officers had " been forwarded to them. Mr. Hanson said, that the summonses had been sent into the country to Captain Oakes, Lieut. Gore, and Lieutenants Hall, Storey, and Terry ; and though they could not be present to- day, on account of the distance, they would be here at the next meeting of the Jury. [ This communication gave evident satisfaction.] R. Farmer, a trumpeter was called to state if he knew ivhat trumpeter was at Cumberland- gate on the Hth of August. He was questioned very closely, butcould give no precise information. Bishop was not a trumpeter, though there was a boy of that name who was learning. Robert Aldus was next called. He was a wood- turner, living in Hart Street, Grosvenor- square, and stated that he assisted in picking up Honey. He saw the man fall, but he did not think he was shot at first. Witness saw him reel, and observed, " You are drunk enough." He afterwards saw the wound. He did hear a shot fired, but be did not know who fired it ; whether it was an officer or a private who fired it he could not tell. Every thing was quiet as he heard at the time. By Mr. Spicer ( one of the jury;. The deceased stood in the road before him, and witness on the kirb- stone.— Witness saw and heard the firing. Thought the soldiers were firing ball- cartridges, and did not consider it safe to stop. Witness immediately ran off. By the Foreman. He did not seethe deceased menac- ing the soldiers at all. There were no symptoms of dis- turbance where he stood. There were a great number of persons at Cumberland- gate when he first arrived there. When he was in the Pari; he saw bricks and stones thrown by the people. Witness had a friend with him, Mr. Ritchie, a Dyer, of Duke Street. William King, a very important witness, was then called and examined, He lived at No. 18, Weld Street. Lin- coln's Inn Fields. He first saw the procession in Picca- dilly, and accompan. ed it as far as Park- lane. There it was stopped. He saw the procession move through the Park, headed by some Life Guards. He perceived a number of stones thrown with great rapidity towards the soldiers. This was opposite Grosvenor gate. The stones were thrown by some hundreds of the mob. The wit- ness then entered into a description of the situation of the soldiers at Cumberland gate. He stood close to a man whom he afterwards understood to be . Richary Ilouey.— The people had ceased throwing stones at this time. He saw a yo'unjj officer, whose horse's head was turned tow wards Cumberland gate. The officer " quite wantonly, ( there being no stones thrown at the time), turned round to the people, presented his pistol over his bridle arm.— When he saw the pistol presented, he changed his posi- tion one pace, and the deceased fell. The officer took an aim for about a second. Witness was so close to the man that he did not know whether the contents of the pistol were meant for him or the deceased. ( To be continued. J FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. FBOM FRENCH PAPERS. PARIS, Aug 25—" The Court will go into mourning on Sunday next, for twenty- one days, on account of the death of the Queen of England ; the mourning is to tie black for the first eleven days, and white for the last ten days. " The Tuillerres, Aug. 21, 1821." It is affirmed that the King of England will visit Paris about the end of next month. His Majesty will travel tinder the title of'the Count de Lunebourg. The Duke of Wellington arrived yesterday at Paris ; to- day, at noon, his Grace was received by the King, in private audience ; after which he visit- ed their Royal Highnesses Madame, Monsieur, and the Duke d'Angoulemcv Several persons of the suite of Napoleon Lave ar- rived at Paris ; one of them M. Marchand, his head valet de chamhre. M. de Montholon, who is still at London, has received his passports to return to France. It seems that General Bertrand means to stay at London. Letters from Barcelona, of the 12th of August, sav, " As we do not doubt that yon will be much alarmed bv the intelligence of the epidemic or yellow fever, which is stated to have manifested itself here five or six davs since, we think it necessary to state, that the physicians have not yet characterised the malady. It is certain that our city has had none sick ; those who were taken to the Lazaretto, were brought from a Neapolitan vessel, ten individuals have died, but it is not certain tfiat their disorder is epidemic. In consequence of the measures adopt- ed by the Government, we hope to be rescued from all contagion." LISBON, Aug. 11.— In the sitting of the Cortes on the 17th, the Government sent to the Cortes a variety of dispatches from the Provisional Junta at Bahia, giving an account of the late occurrences at Brazil. The first dispatch states, that the brig Treze de Maio, which left Rio Janeiro on the lOth of June, had just anchored at Bahia, having on board the Count d'Areos as a prisoner, in conse- quence of the glorious and memorable events which had taken place at Rio on the 5th, when the cause of reason and justice triumphed for the second time over the machinations of a hideous disposition, winch sought to disunite the Portuguese of the Two He- mispheres. Manv members of the Junta having received letters from persons of the highest probity, they send the substance to the Cortes, recommend- ing the strictest vigilance over the pcrsbp of the Count, who is considered as the head of the most execrable conspiracy against the common interest of the natiori and the King. Another dispatch contains the notification made to the Junta of Bahia by the Secretary of State at Rio Janeiro, announcing, the installation of the Go- vernment of the Prince Regent, and the answer of the Junta declining to be under any Government whatever except directly under that of the King him- self. The Junta thought that the reasons assigned ... . in their answer will fully justify them for refusing anv political subordination to the province of Rio de Janeiro. The Cortes highly approved the sentence of the Junta of Bahia. In the sitting of the 9th, the Seeratrv Telguei- ros stated the receipt of a letter from the Minister of the Marine, announcing the arrival of the TrcZe de Maid. He asked, whether the brig might be un- loaded, and presented among several papers arrived from Rio, an original letter from the Prince Royal to the King, which his Majesty sent to the Cortes desiring to have it returned ; a petition from J. Jac Sauza Lobato, on which his Majesty thought the Cortes should decide ; and lastly, he asked, what was to be done with the Conde d'Arcos, who was not mentioned in the, letter to the King? His Royal Highness's letter was then read, giving an account of the revolution of the 5th, which was attributed to the insubordination of some officers, who were named on the occasion, of swearing to the bases of the Constitution. The letter states, that the bases were sworn to, and a Provisional Junta chosen by the people. His Royal Highness said, that it was always his wish to maintain the constitu- tional system of the Cortes of Portugal, as was evi- dent by the measures he iiad taken before the 5th. Ho concluded by desiring the letter to be presented to the Cortes. All the papers being read were delivered to the Committee of tf) e Constitution to be reported the next dav- it was resolved that the brig should be placed in free communication ( Time practica), the Govern- ment keeping the Count d' Arcos safe till the deci- sion of the Cortes. In the sitting of the Cortes of the 10th, it was resolved that the Count d'Arcos should be confined in the Tower of Belem for the present. FROM GERMAN PAPERS. FRANKFORT, Aug. 19 The Imperial Rus- sian guards, cantoned on the banks of the Dwina, as well as the corps in Luthuania, and the first corps of the first array, have received orders to make one march in advance. These troops receive their ra- tions of provisions and forage every five days.— They are to quit their cantonments to approach the southern frontiers, where the army of the south, commanded by Gen. Count Wittgenstein, is al- ready assembled. Private accounts say, that the army which the Porte has assembled 011 the shores of the Bosplio- rus, amounts to 100,000 men, the greater paft con- sisting of the hordes that have come from Asia.— The inhabitants of the countries through which such an army shall pass are to be pitied, for it is well known that the Asiatic soldiers, who are under no kind of discipline, pillage and lay waste every thing in their way. The Duke of Wellington, who arrived on the 17th at Coblentz, having inspected the immense works at Ehreiibreitstcin, set out 011 the 18th for Ems. AUGUST 2- 2.— An aid- de- camp of the Duke of Cambridge arrived here yesterday, and brought word that the Duke of Wellington would not come here, as we- expected, but Ins Grace having arrived at Mavence at eleven o'clock at night on the 19th, set out again at six o'clock next morning for Paris. We learn that it was in consequence of receiving an express from England that his Grace set out sud- denly for Paris, instead of paying a visit to 1 lain; burgh, and then going to Rumpelheim, where the Duke of Cambridge has been for some days. TURKEY AND R US$ 1 A. The Turkey Mail arrived on Tuesday, and brings letters from Constantinople to the 25th, and from Smyrna to the 19th ult. Their contents are of great importance, and a verv short time can elapse before the question of peace or war between Tur- key and Russia is known. The ultimatum of the Russian Government was delivered to the Porto on the 18th, and ten days were allowed tor a definitive answer. It is stated from a quarter of considerable authority, that the terms are not so much to be objected to, as the manner in which they were dictated. The Turks are very indignant at the short period allowed them for determining, but are particularly so at the ultima- tum being accompanied with an intimation that if they do not conduct themselves better in future, the Allied Powers would not allow them to remain any longer in Europe It remains to be seen what Governments have authorised Russia to make such an intimation. The terms of the ultimatum are stated to be as fol- lows : 1. The evacuation of the provinces of Wallachia and Moldavia by the Turkish troops. 1. That no Greek shall be punished for rebellion unless proved to be guilty. 3. The property of Greeks who have beconic Russian subjects to be preserved to them. 4. The re- establishment of all the Greek Churches; and, An ample apology for the insults ofTcrcd to Baron StrogonoflT. The Divan had had several meetings since the re- ceipt of this ultimatum, and were to have another on the 25th, at which Lord titrangford was request- ed to attend. Oh the 2d of July, the Porte sent off dispatchcs to Count Ncsselrode, detailing the whole of Strogo- nolF's proceedings, and shewing his conduct to have heen most outrageous and improper. Datiesi, the Banker, was alive, but exiled.— Morn. Chron. Aug. 28. We have, to announce the arrival yesterday of dis- patches from Constantinople, bringing intelligence to the 30th tilt. ' 1 he Porte had acceded to the terms proposed by the Russians, but they are men- tioned to be less severe than those stated in our Paper of the 2Sth inst. though we believe the latter to be substantially correct; but a curious circum- stance had occurred to prevent the answer ol the Porte being officially received by Baron Strogo- nofif, and he lias actually taken his departure from Constantinople without l « ing the bearer of it.— The facts are these : the ultimatum was delivered by Strogonoff on the 18th, and it appears, that in- stead of ten only eight days were allowed for the Porte to decide. On the 26th, StrogonofT sent his Dragoman for the answer— the latter was informal bv the Dragoman of the Porte, that" as the docu- ments would require some tirn^ to prepare and tran- slate, it was wished that a few hours more should be allowed," at the same time it was iut mated that the whole of the terms proposed had been agreed to. On the following dav it was notified that the official answer was ready, when Strogonoff refused to re- ceive it, alleging tllat it was too tardy ; lie theu de- manded passports for himself and suite; these the Porte refused, but offered at the same time to give the vessel he intended embarking onboard of, a firman, and said that they should not oppose his departure. Although this proceeding would seem to indicate a strong inclination to pith- a quarrel at any rate, we do not think that such is StrogonofFs view. It is said ( and we have the information from an undoubted source), he intimated to the other Ambassadors, that as the time had expired, he could not accept the answer without disobeying the orders of his master, but that he should wait at Odessa ami be ready to receive any communications the Porte might think proper to send him. We may, therefore, confidently anticipate that there will be no war between these two Powers. At Smyrna, it appears, that considerable anxiety was felt respecting the result of an expected engage- ment between the Turkish and Greek fleets ; the former was at Sainos.— Mom. Chron. Aug. 31. The progress of the funds towards improvement, in consequence of the favourable news from Turkey, has been checked this morning ( Aug. 31,1 by some doubts with regard to its authenticity. The chief point out of which these doubts arise is the mys- terious conduct of Baron Strogonoff, which, it is contended, can only be explained by a disposition on the part of Russia, at all events, to force on a war with Turkey SPAIN. EXTRAORDINARY CORTES. MADRID,, Aug. 13.— The permanent Depu- tation of the Cortes, informs all the Deputiis of the Cortes, that the follow ing Oilici d Letter w a* re- ceived by it yesterday from the Secretary of State for the Peninsula :— EXCELLENT SIB— From the urgent necessity of placing in harmony with the Constitution varioi s of the most im- portant branches of the State, niul in - order to decide on some other general affairs oil which the public prosperity in a great measure depends, the delay of which cannot he seen by the paternal heart of the King with indifference ; his Majesty, wishing to accelerate such beneficial means, considers it proper that the Exraordinary Cortes should assemble, and has commanded mo to make thi$ com- munication to the permanent Deputation of Cortes, ac- cording to the tenor of paragraph Jd, art. 162, of the Constitution.

Ilis Majesty left Dublin for Slane Castle, the scat of the Marquis Conyngham, on Friday. His journey, about 22 Irish, or 28 English rr; les. was one continued scene of rejoicing, the roads being lined the whole way by the inhabitants of the county of Meath and the ad- joining counties. His Majesty arrived at Slane Castle between four and five o'clock, and in the evening the whole surrounding country, as far as the eye could reach, was covered with bonfires and all the various forms of il- lumination. Tlis Majesty returned to Dublin on Monday, when he honoured the University there with his presence at din- ner. On Tuesday there was a grand Installation of the Knights of St. Patrick. On Friday the King visited the Curragh. It is expected he will take his departure from Ireland, between the I st and 6th of this month. Ir appears some difference took place at the Civic Dinner— on this, a Correspondent in the Morning Chronicle remarks as follows: " The boasted reconciliation of the Orangemen with their enslaved neighbours the Catholics, which was so de- cidedly broken at the Lord Mayor's Feast, on Thursday last, was accompanied in the breach with circumstances which are somewhat ludicrous. After the Lord Mayor had retired from the chair, the victim of the conviviality of the evening, Mr. Alderman John Claudius Beresford was called thereto. Immediately afterwards some Orange- men urged Mr. Beresford to propose * The glorious and immortal memory of King William.' which, a* you are aware, is the prominent signal of the party. Notwith- standing the promised suspension of hostilities ( for I never regarded the reconciliation with the Catholics as any thing more), the Orangemen promised, upon the King's ex- pected arrival, they still determined to hold out this sig- nal. Beresford. who combines the dexterity of a politi- cian with the spirit of an Orangeman, replied to the re- quest, * I cannot for particnlar reasons comply with your request, but I will propose the health of Alderman Dar- ley. let him know your wish, and I have no doubt that he will propose the toast.' Alderman Darley's health was accordingly proposed, and in vino Veritas the obnoxious toast, that occasioned the riot, immediately followed." } t ( Rttecn'gs funeral. STADE, AUG. 12.— The inhabitants for many miles round this town left their houses, and came here to wit- ness the arrival ofthe Queen's lemains yesterday, and stayed to see to see the procession set out to- day for Brunswick. The sight, which was truly affecting, made a deep impression on the spectators : I have seldom had an opportunity of observing sudi heartfelt sympathy as the people universally manifested. Each person seemed to feel for the Queen as if her Majesty had been a near and dear relative, mixed with a sort of awe, inspired by the exalted rank of this unfortunate Princess. shame all the elaborate preparations of a College of Heralds. Ten o'Clock Friday night, August 24. At this hour Loril and Lady Flood, L^ dy Atine Ha- milton, Dr. and Mrs. Lushington. and Mr. and Mrs. Wilde, and the other mourners who had previously arrived at Brunswick, were informed that the hearse with the mortal remains of ( he Queen had arrived at the outer bar- rier, about a mile distant from the inner barrier, or en- i trance into the town. They immediately ordered their carriages, and proceeded to the place provided for their reception, which " was a large room on the ground floor of an inn. In the middle of the road opposite the door of the inn stood the hearse, guarded by an escort of the black regiment of Brunswickers, at the head of whom the late Duke, the brother of the Queen, feJJ gallantly fighting at the battle of Waterloo. It was now eleven o'clock, and Sir G. Nayler was preparing to marshal the procession, when the Grand Chamberlain and the Commandant of the town presented themselves, and desired a few minutes conversation with Sir George and Mr. Calvert before the procession should begin to move. They stated that they had an urgent request to make on .- behalf of the people of Brunswick : it was, that a deputation of respectable citi- zens might be permitted to draw the funeral car. Mr. Calvert, who from the beginning of the voyage had behav- ed in a manlier at once characteristic of good sense and gentlemanly feeling, immediately assented to what he considered a most reasonable request; but Sir George Nayler began to express his, disapprobation, though with- out assigning any reason. Captain Hesse here interposed, and with an apology for his intrusion, a> ked, w hether the request of the citizens of Brunswick was to be considered as a mark of respect or otherwise. To this it was instant- ly answered, that it was certainly intended as a mark of the profoundest respect for the illustrious deceased. Sir G. Nayler still maintained the appearance of opposition, but as he offered no remark, he was supposed to assent, especially when it was added, by the Chamberlain and Commandant, that they could not be answerable for the peace of the city unless this reasonable request was com- plied with. The horses were then removed from the hearse, and the coffin was deposited in a magnificent open car, while about a hundred Brunswickers, well dressed, and having all the appearance of the respectable classes of so- ciety, placed themselves in front in the most regular and tranquil order. Sir G. Nayler, with an embarrassed look, uttered something which sounded like vexation ; and for the purpose apparently of expressing his displeasure more strongl- y, threw aside his gorgeous coat of heraldry, assert- ing that he would not wear it. In a few seconds, how- ever, he seemed visited by a sudden thought that a herald without a coat might in the eyes of a stranger lose his im- portance : he therefore magnanimously decided to sup- press his disapprobation, and put on his coat : which hav- ing done, he slowly entered his coach. The various mourners now ascended their carriages, and an order was given for the procession to move. The scene that now presented itself, at once solemn and magnificent, baffles all description : no painting could do justice to its striking effect on the eye, no poetry could express the pathos and sublimity of its moral effect on the heart. ^ The whole way from the outer to the inner barrier, a space of little less than a mile in length and about the breadth of Black- ment. As the corpse passed along the aisleinto the place of sepulture, a hundred young ladies of the first families in Brunswick, dressed in white, stood on eafch side and scattered flowers before it. In a few seconds the coffin and the mourners had all arrived in the family vault of the illustrious House of Brunswick. The entire space is very large, and already contains 57 coffins of different branches of that ancient family. A portion, about sev^ n yards square, was separated from the rest by hangings of black cloth, and was illuminated with wax lights. In the middle of this section stood a platform, raised- about two feet from the ground : on one side stood the coffin of the gallant father of the Queen, at the foot was the coffin of her gallant brother, both heroes slain in battle when fight- ing against the tyranny of Bonaparte ; and here in this ap- propriate spot was now deposited one as brave as the bravest of her race, and who fell in a great and courageous struggle . with a persecution more unjust. more unrelenting, than ever scourged mankind. ; When the mourners were all arranged in the tomb, the Minister, whose name was J. W. J. Wolff, preacher of the Cathedral Church, a mild and sen ible- looking man, about sixty years of age, stood at the head oft the coffin, and, in a voice tremulous will) emotion, utter. ed a prayer in the German language, of which the following is a trans- lation :— THE PRAYER. " Transient is our life, perishable all fortune and glory of the earth ! Thus, All wise God, thou hast ordained it! But in death are terminated all the hardships, troubles, gnd sufferings that attend the life of man in this state of imperfection. Not in this world, where we are strangers, where we live in a constant struggle with adversities and pur own infirmities ; no ! only in that to come, . for which thou hast created our immortal spirit, do we find. Jbe de- sired felicity, and purer, untroubled, imperishable joys. Penetrated even in. the inmost recesses of our hearts, by ; this solemn and consoling truth, we elevate with pious de- v votion our hearts to thee, the Infinite One ! in this sacred ' place, and at the coffin of a deceased, whom thy All- wise ] will once destined for a terrestrial throne, and now, after < a rare change of destiny, hast called into the ( and of eternal peace. With hearts deeply affected do we view the burying- place of this descendant of a beloved and ij princely family. Thou, her benign Creator, didst adorn her with high advantages of mind and body, and didst bestow upon her a heart full of clemency and benignity. - Thy providence placed her where she could and was re- I solved to do much good, to the honour of her high family, and for the weal of the country whose Princess she was. Unsearcheable, O Eternal, are thy ways ! After a tran- sient and troublesome life, she has now finished her earthly career, and her inanimate body returns to the vault where her ever- memorable father, her brother, her relations are resting. " Almighty God ! with elevated hearts we glorify thy grace for all the benefits thou has given to the deceased during her life, and we infinitely revere thy wisdom in the present termination of her severe trials ; whereby, after thy most benign intention, she should be purified of human infirmities, and be prepared for a better life.— Thanks to thee for the comfort thou hast richly granted her in her last hours ! thanks for the great strength thou Lady Cochrane is a passenger on board the Andro- mache frigate. We learn she has come to this country for the recovery of her health. She has been on l> oard the Squadron under Lord Cochrane ever since he had assum- ed the corhmand in the Pacific. His Lordship, it appears, had nude several unsuccessful applications to the autho- rities at Callao to allow her Ladyship to lam), in order to recover her health, and owing to this circumstance she sail. ed for Europe with Captain Sheriff. With regard to the naval and military operations, the advices communicate no news of importance. It is under- stood that the arrny undpr General San Martin was very sickly up to the latest dates.

The unsettled and very unfavourable state of the weather, together with short supplies of Wheat, caused a brisk demand for that article this morning, and prime samples sold from 4s. to 5s. per quarter higher than on Monday; and the inferior qualities obtained 3s. per quar- ter more than on that day— Barley, Beans, and Pease are 2s, Oats f om 2s., to 3s. per quarter dearer, and sales of each of those articles were brisk at the advances.

We understand that she brought in with her a French | lugger* Captured on she coast of Orkney on Sunday the 19th inst. The lugger being a remarkably quick sailer, was chased for some time by Captain Stuart;' without success, when a dead calm ensuing, she was abandoned by all her crew, who succeeded in effecting their escape. When taken possession of by the boats of the revenue cuttcr, she was found to be laden with gin, silks, snuff, Sec. to a very considerable extent and value. On Friday morning last a fire took place oil board of the Britannia, Trammere Steam- packet, owing to the lx> iler being without wafer when the fire was laid on.— The fire was soon extinguished, yet not before ' consider-, able injury was done to the boat. It is said that the boiler had been filled with water on the preceding even- ing. and that some ill- disposed persons had let it cut during the night. LIVERPOOL, Aug. 29.— The Robert Bruce steam I packet, from hence to Dublin, caught fire yesterday j morning, between Point Linses and Holyhead, and I utl- [ derstand is burnt to the water's edge. She was run on j shore and the passengers all saved ; but I believe the luggage is all gone. In addition to the above, we have received the follow- ing particulars connected with this lamentable event: " The Captain writes; that, when a little past the Great Ormshead, the packet took fire, owing to a want < f> f attention to the boilers; with much difficulty we got her into the creek of Cemmies, near Amlwch, and scuttled her; the cabin and deck are much burnt; she may be ® got off again and repaired; the passengers, consisting of gg? 16 cabin, and 8 steerage, and the crew of 14 bands, with ! the luggage, & c. are all safe." ... I This day there were 393 bolls of. Oatmeal in Edin- burgh Market— Retail price per peck of best oatmeal. Is. 3d. second Is. 2d. Dr. and Mrs. Lushington were the only persons of con- sequence who attended the royal corpse yesterday on its passage up the canal, and landing here. Lord and Lady Hood, and Lady Ann Hamilton. & c. & c. who left the j| ships at Cuxhaven, for the purpose of coming hither over ti; land, were not in time to join the imposing ceremony. At g four o'clock this afternoon, as you are already aware, the & procession began to move forward. All the horses in this ig part of the country are put in requisition, upwards of ||| seventy being necessary for the hearse, carriages, and " vehicles, of one description or another, which made up the cavalcade. To an Englishman, the appearance of the procession, as it left this place, was, in the extreme, gro- tesque. A great part of it was made up of German wag- § *• gons, into which several of the attendants and other per- sons were stowed. These waggons are the national vehicles here, and almost the only machine used by all classes of people for travelling. CELLE, AUG. 2J.— An affecting incident has occurr- ed upon the passage from Soltau to this town. Halting in the middle of the day at the town of Bergen, the mourners entered a house for the purpose of reposing themselves.— The commandant of the place, Colonel Friegen, waited upon them, to bid them welcome; but was for some time absolutely unable to speak from emotion. At length in a few words, which sufficiently, however, expressed the na- ture of his feelings, he told them that, in the very room which they then occupied, he had, in the same month seven years before, received the Queen of England when she came to meet her brother, the late Duke of Bruns- wick. A vast number of persons who were collected in- side the house remembered the . fact as well as the worthy commandant, and bore testimony to it with their tears.— Some of the most respectable inhabitants of the place re- quested, as a favour to the multitude, that the hearse might be opened for a moment: their desire was com- plied with. At Bergen the hussars who accompanied the funeral were relieved by a guard of cuirassiers; and the entrance of the cavalcade into Celle was marked by demonstrations of the highest regard and attention. The bells were toll- ed ; the streets were lined with soldiers, girls strewed flowers before the hearse; and the coffin being carried into the great church of the city, was placed ( by a singular coincidence) upen the tomb of the unfortunate sister of Geo. III. Matilda, Queen of Denmark. OFFAU. AUG. 24.— About noon this day the proces- sion on its way to Brunswick, was met at Offau by the Count Aldenslaben, Grand Chamberlain of the Court. That officer intimated to Lord Hood and Dr. Lushing- ton, that he wished to make arrangements for the inter- ment, which was to take place upon the same evening Lord Hood and Dr. Lushington resisted a proposal which appeared to them inconsistent with the respect due to the illustrious remains placed under their charge. They wish- ed that the body should at least lie in state during the ensuing day. The Grand Chamberlain, who evidently wished to show all possible respect to the memory of the Queen, and who spoke of her with the deepest regret and affection, declared, that under the arrangements made ( upon which he was bound to act), the interment was to take place without any previous ceremonial in the way of lying in state : he further stated, that it had been the in- variable custom in the family of the Dukes of Brunswick to bury at midnight. Dr. Lushington still refused to acquiesce, on the ground that the mourners attending the funeral, many of whom were ladies, could not prepare themselves so early for the ceremony; it would be impos- sible that they could enter Brunswick with the procession, and proceed at once to the place of interment. Count Aldenslahen stated, that an immense concourse of persons, who were collected in Brunswick to witness the funeral, would be disappointed if it did not take place on that night; and that, by the regulation laid down, the body, if not buried that night, could not be permitted to enter the walls of the city. It was then agreed that Lord Hood, Lady A. Hamilton, Mrs.- Lushington, and the remain- der of the mourners should at once go forward to Bruns- wick; that the funeral procession should follow so as to arrive at ten at night at the gates of the city ; and that, at that time, the personages attending and officiating should go out to meet it. This arrangement was decided upon. The mourners went forward; and the hearse, with the mourning coaches, continuing its slow and solemn course, arrived about ten o'clock at the outer barrier. BRUNSWICK— The people of Brunswick had re- ceived no intimation that her Majesty was to be buried in the tomb of her ancestors till the Thursday evening, when it was announced that on the very next night the funeral was to take place. The authorities, and the general po- pulation. equally expressed disgust at this precipitated interment of their illustrious and beloved Princess; but it was understood that the order was peremptory, and could : not be disputed. Much mystery seemed to exist as to the [ source whence the order emanated ; but when it was con- [ sidered that the evident disposition of the authorities at Brunswick was to pay every mark of respect in their power to the memory of their royal countrywoman, and j that the King of England, as guardian to the infant Duke ! of Brunswick, now in Switzerland, is in fact the present j Sovereign of the principality, little doubt remained that ! Count Munster was the person who had issued the man- date to conduct the funeral obsequies of the Queen of • England. But the enthusiastic regard of the Bruns- ; wickers for their Sovereign's family, and their particular j affection for the deceased Queen, were too deeply rooted and genuine to require any formal notice of preparation; f In an instant a population of 40,000 souls, though with- 1 out the possibility of concert, seemed actuated by one re- ; solution to show how much sincere respect exceeds the official sorrow demanded by a Government Gazette ; and determined by 44 their swift unbespoken pomp," to put to friars- road, was lined with a dense mass of people, not merely from Brunswick, but from the neighbouring towns and villages : some families had followed the funeral cortege from Celle, and others even from Hamburgh. The front lines of this immense assemblage carried torches; and from the double rows of willows on each side of the road were suspended lamps of various colours, green, red, and yellow. In the distance were seen the illuminated houses of Brunswick, adding by the fantastic variety of their architecture to the picturesque beauty of the scene, and by their undecayed antiquity reminding man of the nothingness of his existence, in comparison even with the durability of the commonest works of his own hands.— The solemn tolling of the bells, the suppressed sobs of the women, and the deep silence of the men, added an awful and almost painful interest ; there was room, however, for one pleasureable sensation, and that of the purest kind, and that was, that this homage paid to the deceased and persecuted Queen of England was no mere state ceremony, but the unbidden worship of manly and generous hearts, who revered her virtues, and sympathized with her afflic- tions. The procession moved slowly towards the town, and as the clock struck twelve reached the inner barrier. Here the mourners descended from the carriages, and the whole cortege now proceeded on foot, with the exception of Sir George ISayJer, who kept his state in the first car- riage.' From the entrance of the town to the cathedral church the distance is about a mile, and the slow pace at which the procession moved, together with the various streets through which it passed, gave the whole population an opportunity of witnessing the grand spectacle without much inconvenience, and with scarcely any danger. To the people, however, was due the praise of the good order that prevailed. The only arrangement made by the au- thorities— so great and so just was their confidence in the good disposition of the people— was an escort of about twenty constables. The Brunswick cavalry, that, to the amount of about 200, accompanied the procession, march- ed slowly by the sides, as state attendants, but took no part in directing the movements of the immense multitude about them, and guided their well- managed chargers through a countless crowd, in narrow streets, without alarming, much less hurting, a single individual. One admirable arrangement here struck us. as contributing equally to the decorum and the safety of the scene ; and this was the total absence of women from the crowd. Out- side the barriers, where the space was very extensive, women as well as men were seen in all parts of the as- | able remembrance be a moving and beneficial lesson, thus j to believe, thus to hope, thus to live, that we may once i courageously pass over to the life of just requital. And I now, most gracious God, preserve likewise to us gra- . ciously the remaining most beloved members of our ! princely family, for our joy and for the welfare of our ' countiy, and attend their days with thy richest blessing ! Grant our most pious wishes ! Amen." While the Minister was uttering this beautiful and pa thetic prayer, all were deeply affected : the military did not disdain to express their emotions in an audible man- ner, and several times we saw the Great Chamberlain wipe away the tears from his fine manly countenance. As to the immediate mourners, including the servants of the Queen's household, we never saw more unequivocal and unaffected sorrow. When the prayer was finished, and before the mourners left the tomb, the hundred young ladies were admitted, and formed a large circle round the platform : they strewed flowers on the floor ; and then having prepared some wrea'hs arranged them in different forms on the coffin ; they then knelt down, uttered a short prayer, and retired amidst the tears and sobs of the company. Even Sir. G. Nayler was visibly affected by this beautiful and pathetic incident. The funeral was over about two, and in less than half an hour the streets were completely empty, and all was as silent as the tomb to which the Queen had just been solemnly consigned. Thus ended the funeral of the amiable and persecuted Queen of England ! Among the English present were. I, otd and Lady Hood. Lady Ann Hamilton, Dr. and Mrs. Lushington, Mr. and Mrs. Wilde, Alderman Wood, and his son, the Rev. T. Wood, Mr. Hownam, and Mr. Wilson ( son of Sir Robert) : among the foreigners. Count Vassali and Captain Hesse ; Mr. Austin and the house- hold were all there also. It is right to mention, that the executors applied at Brunswick, before the funeral, to Mr. Calvert to restore the plate which had been taken off the Queen's coffin at MORPETH, Aug. 29.— At our ma. kct this day there was a good supply of Cattle, Sheep, and Lambs, and although a great demand, prices continue lower, and many were left unsold— Beef from 5s. to 5s. 6d.— Mut- ton from 4s. 6d. to 5s. 6d.— Lamb from 4s. 3d. to 5s. 3d. per stone, sinking offals. There were 160 black., cattle in Glasgow market on Monday, and large as the supply was, they. were mostly all sold off at former prices. Animals in prime condition were first bought up, and brought from 9s. to 10s. a stone. Inferior beasts sold for 8s. and 9s. a stone- The supply of sheep was rather less than it has been for several mar- ket days, there were about 3800 in whole. Black faced lambs sold from 2% to and a few good ones of the . white faced breed sold from 9s, to 14s. each. Black faced, ewes sold at 17s.; and three years old black faced wedders sold at from 15s. to 20s.

Sheep and Timber Markets, Thursday and Friday before New Pi t si I go, Thursday after ditto Tarland, Friday after Sheep semblage ; but in the streets of Brunswick not a woman was to be seen. The men alone were in the streets, the women were at the windows of the houses ; and there was not a house in any street through which the proces- sion passed which had not every window crowded with spectators of the female sex, all dressed in black, and all expressing by their anxious attention the deep interest which they took in the solemn ceremony passing before them. In this manner the procession moved on to the church, the glare of a thousand torches making every part of it visible to everyone of the multitude. At the door of the church a short scene ofconfusion took place, but no injury ensued. When the hearse reached the church door, the multitude, with a very natural desire to see as much as they could of the funeral rites, endeavoured to enter the church ; but as there was no room for them, it was neces- sary to put them back. Remonstrance, however, was fruitless, for the pressure from behind had now become so great, that it prevented the first line from stepping back : in this dilemma, and in order to afford a passage into the church for the mourners, the cavalry were ordered to clear the way; this they did with equal dexterity, promptitude, and care : at the same instant three bodies of them moved forward as from two sides of a triangle to anoint, and completely cut ofTtlie multitude from the door. This movement was effected with so much care, that not a single person received the slightest hurt; and in a minute a clear space was left for the mourners to enter the church.— Here at the porch the Minister and the Municipality stood ready to receive the body ; the coffin was lifted from the car, and carried by sixteen serjeants of the Brunswick cavalry, while sixteen Majors bore the pall. The appear- ance of the church was solemn and imposing. Though a building of no striking beauty when seen by day- light, its lofty columns and long aisles hung with black, had by night an appearance of melancholy grandeur, especially as, to increase the sombre effect, the illumination was but scanty. Owing to the positive orders received from the same mysterious quarter to which we have before alluded, no service not even a funeral chant, was to be performed in the church ; and this, for some absurd pretence that, as the Queen had died abroad, it was to be considered that these rites had been almady performed, and that the cere- mony at Brunswick was merely depositing the body in the family vault— a ceremony which was always performed without funeral service, as in the case of the Duke of Brunswick, the father of the late Queen. But this was a mere idle pretence : the late Duke was absolutely interred and with all funeral ceremonies and services, out of his dominions, during tlietyranny of Bonaparte, after whose defeat he was disinterred, and . removed to Brunswick.— The Queen of England had not been so interred: tio re- ligious rite had been performed on her ; and decency, as well as religion, required that a Qneen should not be cur- tailed of those rites which belong to the funeral of the meanest subject. The love of the people here again made ample compensation for the curtailments of power. Even the officers of state expressed their regret that they were forced to comply with orders manifes jy unreasonable and . disgusting; and the worthy Minister of the Cathedra 1, who loved and venerated the virtues of the late Queen, showed by his manner that he was no party to the official arrange- Colchester ; and that Mr. Calvert answered, that he con- ceived himself to l> e without authority to comply with their request. After the funeral the executors made a se- cond application, but we believe without success : it was, however, clearly understood, that if the plate should be restored, the actual authorities at Brunswick would offer no opposition to its being placed on the coffin. On Sun- day a funeral sermon was preached by Mr. Wolff, at which all the mourners attended. COLONIAL TIMBER DUTY. 44 Treasury Chambers, July 2.

At the meeting of the Presbytery of Hamilton, on the 29th ult. Counsel attended on the part of his Grace the Duke of Hamilton, and also on that of Dr. Meek, to rebut the objections that had been offered at last meeting of Presbytery, to the formality of the presentation to L) r. Meek, which was. " to the charge of the first minister of Hamilton,"- instead of being to be minister of the first charge of that parish. But after Counsel and several agents had come to the bar, the moderator produced a letter from Sir . Tdhn Connel,- wherein Ire gives it as his opinion that the objection'was not well founded, ahd that the presentation was valid. The Presbytery therefore unanimously sustained the presentation, and resolved to proceed to the settlement of Dr. Meek, with all convenient speed. . MEETING of the MERCHANT COMPANY. A General Meeting of the Merchant Company was | held in their hall on Monday. The Minutes ofthe last meeting, containing the resolutions introduced by Mr. Waugli, censuring the conduct of those who brought for- ward a petition to Parliament for a reform in the set of the burgh having been read, • Mr. Black said, that, as, he had not before had an op- portunity of answrring the charges made or implied in those resolutions, he hoped he should now, not only be able to vindicate himself, but convince every unprejudiced mind that what was done on the occasion alluded to in the a^ i resolutions, was not only proper and advisable in itself, but strictly in accordance with the rules of the Company. ||| He maintained that there could be no question as to the object of the petition as the Company had agreed, about ^ three years ago, at the fullest meeting he had ever witness- ed, by a majority of two to one, that they ought to endea-' vour to attain a more liberal system of town polity, and appointed a Committee for this purpose. No man had ever yet stood up in defence of the system of self- election ; a system, the absurdity of which was obvious to the mean- est capacity ; but its adherents, though they had not the hardihood openly to defend this absurdity, took every tor- tuous method to defeat the endeavours of those who sought the reform of this glaring abuse. He argued far- | tlier, from the rules and practice of the Company, that he was perfectly in order in bringing forward, as he did, the report ofthe Burgh Reform Committee and the peti- tion consequent upon it ; and concluded by moving ihat the resolutions proposed by Mr. Waugb, and carried by a majority of one, at last meeting, should be rescinded from the journals. Mr. Alexander Craig seconded the motion. Mr. Waugh said, that at present they had only to con-. $ sider whether or not the minutes gave a fair account of the proceedings of the former meeting, and suggested,. that if the motion was persisted in, that the term to be used was that the resolutions be expunged. Mr. Archibald Anderson, Mr. Spittal, and Mr. R. B. Blyth, supported Mr. Black's motion. Mr. Hill moved that Mr. Waugb's resolutions should stand. The vore being called the numbers Expunge Approve » were—— 154 98 Majority in favour of Mr. Black's motion... 26 Mr. Waugb's motion for an alteration in the bye laws was then read, and after some discussion it was agreed that IS it should lie over.

The illustrious party took a survey of many parts ofthe city incognito, including Holyrood Mouse, and in the even- ing dined at their Hotel without company. A consider- able crowd assembled in front of the Hotel, occasioned by the carriages being at the door at seven o'clock, which raised the expectation that a private visit to the Theatre was intended, but the public were disappointed.

Broad Street, Sept. 1821. CORRESPONDENCE RELATIVE TO THE LAST ILLNESS OF BONAPARTE. [ From a Paris Paper] TVincess Borghese, sister of Napoleon, had made repeated applications to the English Government for permission to join her brother in St. Helena. Her request was eventually granted, and she was making the necessary preparations for the voyage, when intelligence of the death of Bonaparte arrived, and altered her intention. M. Bonavita, the ec- clesiastic. who left St. Helena in March last, trans- mitted to the Princess, on his arrival at Rome, the following letter, which w ill furnish a new proof that the death of Napoleon was the consequence of a long anil painful malady, for the removal of which the aid of medicine was of no use. LETTER PROM COUNT DE MONTHOLON TO THE PRINCESS BOUGH E^ E, AT ROME. Longwood, March 27, 1821. MA DAM— Napoleon charges ine to give you information ncerning bis health. The liver complaint with which be has Urn afflicted for several years, and which be- comes mortal in this climate, lias made in the last six months an alarming progress. The improvement ex- peeled from the skill and assiduity of Doctor Antomarehi lias not taken place. Several relapses occurred in the course of the latter part of last year and every day the ma- lacly ga'ns an accession of strength. Napoleon is become extremely weak ; scarcely can be support the fatigue of lialf an hour's exercise in a carriage, or on horseback at a slow pace. He cannot walk in hischambcr without the assistance of a fiiend or attendant. To bis hepatical com- plaint is superadded another disease incideht to the climate in which we live; his bowels are severely affected, bis di- gestive organs no longer perform their functions, and his stomach rejects every sort of food : For some time. Na- poleon has not been able to eat either meat, bread, or ve getables ! he lives entirely on jellies and ices. Count Bertiand wrote in September last to the Earl of Liverpool, requesting the removal of the Emperor to a more tempe- rate climate, and to show the necessity of his residing in the vicinity of mineral springs. I have given to M. Bona- vita a copy of his ( Beitrand's) letter. Governor Lowe lias refused to forward it to his Government, under the foolish pretext that he had given in it to Napoleon the title of Emperor. M. Bonavita embarks to- day for Rome,; lie has experienced the cruel influence of the climate of St. lleleua; one year's residence in this i land would cost him ftix years of his life. The letter with which M. Antomar- Cbl has intrusted him to Cardinal Fescll will futnish to your Highness circumstantial details relative to the state of the malady < f the Emperor. The London papers are in the constant habit of publishing lette sunder the date j of St. Helena, doling out lies for the purpose of imposing i upon Europe.

THE details of the Funeral Procession of our lamented QUEEN, from the place of landing to Brunswick, where her remains now rest, will be found in our preceding columns. Our readers will see, that the low malignity which persecuted her through life, followed her remains to the family vault of her ancestors ; no funeral service being permitted — no Stile and Pities declared bv the Herald— no solemn music, nor any of those distinctions to which her rank was entitled. Had she been told while living, thatsitch indignities would be offered to her dead body, she would have treated the intimation with con- tempt ; but upon the people of England and the Brunswickers, devoted as thev were to her high character and cause, they have produced a great and it will prove a lasting impression. The Prayer of the German Pastor, delivered before the bodv was deposited in the vault, is one of the finest specimens [ of eloquence we have seen, and isso much distinguish- ed bv a noble and elevated strain of pietv, that few, we are persuaded, can read it unmoved. The affec- tionate respect manifested by all ranks, to the memorv of their favourite Princess, was universal, as it evi- dently was sincere; and a hundred voting ladies of the first families of Brunswick, clothed in white, pre- ceded the hearse, strewing flowers in the The population of Brunswick were well acquainted with the slanders raised up against her Majesty, but they knew the polluted source from which they pro- ceeded, as well as the characters of those engaged in their propagation, and held them in deserved eon- tempt. Unlike the sycophants of our Court, they formed their opinions upon facts, uninfluenced by the frowns or favours of any, and manifested their indignation at malignant persecution, and their ad- miration of exalted worth and heroic fortitude, with- out reserve. The sufferings of this illustrious and excellent Lady are terminated ; but long will she li ve in the affections of the just and the liberal: and England owes her an incalculable debt of gratitude, j for the manly spirit she has roused throughout the country , by the example of fortitude, and confidence in the all subduing power of truth which she set.— Let none believe that CAROLINE qf BRUNSYVICK, The inquest upon the bod)' of RICHARD HONEY lias brought to light many extraordinary facts ; and none more so, than that stated by Captain OAKES, who commanded the detachment of Life Guards up- on the memorable 14th of August, that he had upon that occasion private orders from high Authority, which lie did not think himself bound to disclose to the Jury, and persisted in keeping his secret. He and Sir ROBERT BAKER concur in statement, that no authority was given by the civil power upon that occasion for firing upon the people, whatever orders were given were military orders, for which no ma- gistrate can be held responsible ; and although Cap- tain OAKES was not pressed bv the Jury to disclose his secret orders, we trust a Parliamentary inquiry may elicit the facts, and inform the people of ling- land what that authority is, which, at its pleasure, substitutes the Government of the Sword for that of the Law. According to the principles of the Constitution of England, the Sheriff, who has the right to call out the posse ecmiilatvs, is the proper conservator of the public peace ; and Sir WILLIAM JONES has proved to demonstration, that no soldier ought to be employed in the suppres- sion of riots. What is callcd the lliot Act was passed at a time when sudden danger might have arisen from the adherents of a Pretender to the Throne; and when passed, was never intended to continue a permanent law: but strange change ! even the warning and observance of the Regulations of the Act are dispensed with, and it is argued, that soldiers not called out by the civil power, nor acting under its orders, inav fire and take awav the lives of his Majesty's subjects upon what they may deem sufficient provocation. The time has beeu, Eng- lishmen would not have tamely listened to such doctrines : and from- 1 he spirited conduct of the Jury on this inquest, there is yet reason to hope, that thev will not be long tolerated. It has been usual, in former times, upon the commission of mur der, the guilty being unknown, for Government to oiler in the most public manner, a reward to nnv person who may be able to identify the murder- er, so that he may be brought to justice ; but in the case of FRANCIS, after the Coroner's Jnrv have returned a verdict of " wilful murdei against a Life Guardsman, to them unknown," Government take no notice of the fact; and although the whole num- ber of the Life Guards present upon the occasion merely amounted to a Captain's command, we have heard of no attempt made to ascertain the individual who committed the crime. In answer to a commu- nication from Mr. Sheriff WAITHMAN, stating that, upon the day that the l> odies of HONEY and FRANCIS were interred, the civil power was resist- ed by the Life Guards in Knightsbridge Barracks, Lord BATIIURST has replied, that he has ordered an inquiry into the circumstances. Of what nature that inquiry may be, we are not yet informed ; but if it amount to nothing more than an examination of parties accused, and acting under the command of an officer, who, upon a respectful request from the Sheriff, that he would order his men to keep with- in the barracks while the populace were passing, re- turned the brutal answer mentioned in Mr. WAITH • MA N'S letter, it will be justly held as a mockery of justice. His Lordship however knows, that there are Magistrates not so intractable as Mr. Sheriff WAITHMAN ; and it has been said, that some of these are to express their entire appprobation of the conduct of the soldiers— but as vet this amounts merely to a rumour. A question of great consequence has not yet been disposed of, and that is, whether the people, in assisting to carry into effect the intentions of her Majesty's executors, were engaged in an illegal act, w hen the military inter- fered ? No legal authority for interference with the rights of these executors was shewn, although Lord LIVERPOOL, in his correspondence with Lady HOOD, talked of the imperative anil irrevocable orders he had received. Is it to be supposed, that his Majesty could possibly have given such orders ? If he could, he might, for aught ihepcoplcknov/, have given positive orders that the body should be buried at cross roads, and a stake driven through it; for unlimited prerogative knows no restraint. But in this, as in many other cases, expediency is pled in justification of the conduct of Ministers: they or- dered the body to be conveyed by bye- roads to pre- serve the peace of the city, which would have been endangered,, had the procession passed through it. This would have been said, had the people allowed the funeral to pass according to the route prescrib- ed by Ministers: but the funeral did pass through the city— there wSs no riot— nor the least disturb- ance, after the' Life Guards received the Lord Mayor's orders not to enter the city. In short, the public peace would not have been disturbed, had the executors been permitted to do what according to the law of the country they had a right to do— to j conduct the funeral according to their discretion, BIRTHS.— At Chaplain ftoad ttice, or. the 2Iih ult, the Lady of NORMAN MACLEOD, Esq. of the Hon.

His Majesty litis signified bis interitinn of re- embark- itig for England on Thursday next from the Howib har- bour, to sail direct, so a. to reach Brighton, if possible, otherwise to fetch Portsmouth, and proceed thence iiu- mediinely to Carlton Palace. The King is expected to embark for his German do- minions about the middle of the present month. Magni- ficent preparations are making for his Coronation as King of Hanover. The King proposed to take bis departure yesterday from- Dublin for England. The doubts which we have all along entertained of the accuracy of the accounts, stating the implicit acceptance of the Russian Ultimatum hy the Porte, proved to be well founded. There is no certain intelligence that it has been accepted, whilst the embarkation of Baron Strogonoff' i » undeniable and even his departure mote than probable.—- It may be no very wrong conclusion, that all the Foreign Journals continue to countenance the inevitability of war. but their uniform tone at least shows the exaggeration of the news received so opportunely for the settling dav.— In fact, the great question is still at issue, but appears likely to be completely decided by the next letters from Constantinople. No doubt the most energetic efforts have been made by the other European Ministers to prevent the sailing of Strogonofl', and if the contrariness of the wiod be only an excuse, they may siill produce effect ; but if he has really sailed, it is unlikely that Alexander will allow himself to be amused hy dispatches, and lurlitXack large and efficient armies from the action which they so much desire. The Russian Minister's arrival at Odessa is expected to be followed hy immediate consequences.—. Traveller. and take the direct road from Brandenburgh House to Harwich, which isdirectly through the Metropolis. Whether Dr. LUSHINGTON and Mr. WILDE can obtain redress from courts of law we do not know ; for who can tell what impediments may, in extraor- dinary times, be thrown in the way of justice, but that the interference will become the subject of dis- cussion in Parliament we cannot doubt— and what- ever may be the state of the vote, much valuable information will in conscqtiencecome before the pub- lic. Indeed, the next Session of Parliament must, under the present circumstances of the country, prove interesting beyonjj any precedent in our times. The finances t) f the. country are rapidly approach- ing that crisis which was long ago pointed out as inevitable, and the country gentlemen, who so long persisted in laughing at the prediction as chi- merical, find to their dismay that it was in every re- spect true, and that they are the parties most im- mediately concerned. The resumption of cash pay- ments at the Bank, and the declaration of the Direc- tois, that they will no longer prosecute for forgeries of one pound notes, have occasioned the ruin of thousands of respectably farmers ; anil the landlords elearlv perceive that, as in a rising deluge the tops of the highest hills are at length covered, the weal- thiest among them must, under the present system, be. reduced to penury at no distant period, if no re- medy be provided to avert the evil. It is reported, that Ministers have received official notice from the Bank Directors, that they will no longer make ad- vauces for the payment of dividends, and have made a demand of payment of all former advances, as they find themselves under the necessity of can- celling as many of their notes as possible. Without professing to vouch for the truth of this report, we may observe, that it appears very probable, under present circumstances ; but iiow Mr. VANSITTART shall be enabled to comply with the demand of the Bank is a question of difficult solution. We sincerely hope the Religious and Benevolent Community will, on the present occasion, cheer- fully and liberally assist by their countenance and pecuniary contributions, an INSTITUTION, whose grand aim is to communicate Scriptural knowledge, and virtuous principles, to the youth of both sexes in this city and its vicinity— particularly those who have few other means of instruction. Divine Service to continence at half- past six o'clock. We likewise understand, that the next Annual Public Meeting of the friends of the above Society is to be held, in the Gaelic Chapel, on Tuesday- evening the - 1 1th inst. at half- past six o'clock ; when we trust there yvill be a numerous attendance of the friends and promoters of Sabbath Evening Schools, ana of all who feel interested in advancing the religi- ous and moral condition of the younger ranks of Society. ' On Friday last, a hoy, amusing himself in a salmon coble 011 the river Dor,, near Fintray, unfortunately fell into the river, and was drowned. We understand that the Parishioners of Lochell and Cushnie have, in testimony of their gratitude, attachment, and esteem, for their Pastor, the Rev. William Malcolm, presented him with an elegant Eight- day Clock, and service of Silver Plate. The Annual General Meetingtif Sir Archibald Grant's Moni/ musk Lodge of Gardeners ivas held upon the 3d ult. After settling the ordinary business of the day, ihe follow- ing Members were duly elected Office- bearers for the ensuing year, viz. - PETER MOIR, MASTER; ALEX. CRI'IOKSHANX.

Last week, as some farmers were taking sand from a bank on the Estate of Ar. bff'ry, parish of Crudett, they discovered a rude Stone Coffin, about two feet deep, formed of four tones., containing a human skull, and several of the larger bones, two jar* or urns of red earth, The Preston Chronicle, of ' Saturday last, contains ad vertisements of no less than one hundred and twenty- nine farms to let, all in the county of Lancaster ! Instructions have been given to the collectors of Assess- ed Taxes, that the duties in respect of Husbandry Horses are to be collected for only one quarter of the present year ; and after payment of one- fourth part of the dotie* assessed, the Commissioners of the District will discharge , f the remainder oftlie said duties. Persons who have com- pounded for the said duties are also to be. relieved in the same manner for three quarters of this year, being the third year of their contract, after paymen t oif one- fourth part of their duties ; but no part'of 5 per cent. duty is to be discharged, which will remain on the charge to be collect- ed w-! ieti it becomes due. DUBLIN, Aug. 28.— The utmost degree of indigna- tion prevails he: e in consequence of the shameful conduct of Alderman Darley and the Corporation faction. Ther. s t have bicn some private meetings of the leading public men, but they have for the present declined to do any thin r, trusting that his Majesty will, of his own accord, dismi. s this genilemau from the office he holds, that of first or chief police magistrate. Some of the newspapers state erroneously that the Earl of Fingal was speciallv invited to Slane Castle.. He was not invited at all. Mr. Pluilkett had that honour, and attended on his Majesty accordingly. The incident has given rise to various political specula- tions. Some will have it that Mr. Pluokett went Cabinet- making; others that the Catholic question, which basso often agitated Parliament and Councils, is to receive its. final arrangement within the sumptuous shades of Slane. An article from Corfu, on the 21st July, in t'na French Papers, contains a Proclamation from the ) resident and Senate of the Ionian Islands, recalling all the Ionian sub- jects'- who have dared to declare themselves Chiefs ani^ Leaders of the Cephalouians and % acythians," and at tho head of an armed force, consisting of Iotiians, to takeari active part in the war ctf the Peleponnessus, contrary to the rights of nations, and in violation of the neutrality which the Ionian Government has engaged to maintain. They are commanded to desist from their enterprise in tl.^ space of SI days, and thicatened, in case of disobedienci, with perpetual banishment from t|\ e Ionian territory, the.' sequestration of tneir property, and per- una! prosecution as criminals, if they should ever loll into the hands of the Government. As to tile other Ionian subjects who have been seduced from their duty by these Chiefs, aud have acted under their orders, they are ordered to return im- mediately, if thejt do not wish to suffer thy utmost severity, of the law. On Saturday nijrht there was a surplus in this quarter';) revenue of 250,0001. more than the coiH- spomling quarter of last year. — Sti. r.
