PRINTED AND PUBLISHED BY D. WALKER AND SONS, VOL. CI.— NO. 5199.] ( SUCCESSORS TO R. RAIRES,) WESTGATE. STREEt. MONDAY, t JANUARY J& 1822. [ Price Seven- pence. THURSDAY'S POST. LONDON. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23. INTELLIGENCE is received at Liverpool, that Spa- nish St. Domingo has declared itself' independent. The Declaration of Independence, and the Articles of the New Constitution, have both come to hand, • and are of considerable length. The former is dated from the " City of St. Domingo in the Spanish part of Hayti, Dec. 1, 1821, first year of Independence.'' It is signed by Jose Nunez de Caceres, President, and Manuel Lopez de Umeres, Secretary, be- sides the names of six other individuals. It commenccs in the following style:— No more submission— no more humiliation— no more obedience, to the caprice and levity of the Cabinet or Madrid. In these few but comprehen- sive words is contained the firm resolution which the peo- ple of St. Domingo this day proclaim and swear to." The Declaration then alludes to the " ignominious bondage of 328 years," which is described as a sufficiently long and painf ul lesson of what was to be hoped from a " fanatical loyalty to the Kings of Spain." The various grievances and oppressions under which the colony groaned during that period are subsequently detailed, in somewhat ener- getic terms; and it concludes with observing, that " if Spain recognises and approves the Declaration, it shall henceforth be considered and treated as a friend ; but, if it attempt to oppose the Independence which h.-. s been proclaimed, they are prepared to defend it with their lives, their fortune, and their honour." . The Constitutional Act, which is also dated on the 1st ult. consists of 39 Articles, the first of which declares the Spanish part of Hayti a Free and Independent State. The form of Government is to be Republican, but established upon the most convenient principles of national represen- tation. ' Meanwhile, a Provisional Junta of Government is established, consisting of the Captain- General, the Po- litical Chief, and Deputies from the five districts into which the Spanish part of the island is divided. This Junta is to arrange the final regulations, and consolidate the con- stitutional system. The fifth article provides, that a De- putation shall be sent, with the least possible delay, to the President of the Columbian Republic, to communicate what has taken place at St. Domingo, and to convey the wishes of the inhabitants to connect themselves in strict union with the States, which actually compose that Re- public!, or those that may hereafter belong to it. The sixth article decrees, that another Deputation should be sent to the President of the Republic of Hayti, in the French part, proposing a treaty of amity, commerce, and alliance for their common defence, in case of any hostile invasion. The remaining articles determine various political, civil, and municipal rights and privileges. Article eighteen secures the liberty of the press, subject to certain regula- tions and penalties. A private letter from Liverpool, dated Jan. 21, says, " By letters received here this day, it appears that the ports of New Spain have been formally opened for the importation and exportation of manufactured goods and , produce of every description." • Similar information had also reached Glasgow, as ap- pears by the following, dated from that city on Saturday fast- " By letters from the Havarinah, dated the 11th ult. received in Glagow this morning, we learn, that a brig of war had just arrived at the former place, which brings the important advices that the following ports of Mexico, viz. Vera Cruz, Tampico, Alvarado, on the East coast, Aca- pulco and St. Bias on the West coast, had been declared open to forjign commerce. The duties on imports by fo- reigners were fixed at 25 per cent, and by Spaniards ( na- tives) 15 per cent. The produce of the country to be ex- ported free of duties, except cochineal and vanilla, gold two per cent, and silver six per cent, export duties. The only prohibited articles for import are flour and tohaeco. We congratulate our merchants upon this intelligence. To this opening, Lima sinks into insignificance." Letters have been received from Madrid, stating that the resignation of the Ministry, which has been so long looked, to for tranquillizing Spain, took place on the 9th inst. and was accepted by the King. Four only of the Ministers go out, the other three remain in office; and the functions of the Ex- Ministers will be performed by their Secretaries until the meeting of the Cortes. Letters have been received from Constantinople, dated from the l lth to the I8th ult. They state, that after a long conference between the Austrian Minister and the Divan, the ultimatum of Russia has been accepted by the Turkish Government. The day on which the conference took place is not mentioned, nor that of the acceptance of the ultimatum.; but the event is spoken of as quite certain. The letters are addressed to Greek merchants in the City, and all agree on the points above stated. The latest news from Greece, in the Brussels papers, an- nounces that there continue to arrive numbers of old sol- diers and of volunteers from all parts of Europe, who come to place themselves under the Banner of the Cross. We have received New York Papers to the 30th ult. The proceedings in Congress are not of much public in- terest. These Papers confirm the intelligence of the com- plete revolution which has, at last, been accomplished in the Brazils, and of the dismissal of the Prince Regent, as well as of the Governor of Pernambuco, for Lisbon. A letter received yesterday morning from Spain com- municates the death of the celebrated ltiego, the champion of Spanish liberty. It is ascribed to poison, and the Priests are charged as the authors of this foul deed. As soon as the melancholy event became generally known, the whole of Catalonia declared itself free. Intelligence of considerable interest has been brought by the Owen GJendower, from South America, and par- ticularly in what relates to the affairs of Peru. Lima still remained in the possession of San Martin, but it does not appear that he had been able to undertake any thing be- yond the occupation of that capital. The fort of Callao had resisted all attempts to reduce it; and the Royalists had succeeded in advancing to its relief, without any effort on the part of San Martin or Lord Cochrane to oppose their progress. This circumstance will certainly tend to protract the war, especially as Lascerna and Ramirez still remain in the neighbourhood of Lima, where they are re- presented to be daily augmenting their forces. . Subsequently to the capture of Lima, it appears that San Martin, by various judicious proclamations, and very moderate behaviour, succeeded, apparently, in reconciling all onlers to their new liberators. He proclaimed himself " Protector of the Independence of Peru, until Peru was free, and a National Congress assembled," when, he de- clared, he would be ready to seek the quiet he had long sighed after, by resigning his authority to a Governor or Director of their own appointment. All slaves born after the 28th of July are free. The " tribute" of the Indians is abolished for ever. The natives of Peru shall be no longer railed " Indians," or " Natives," but " Peruvians." All compulsory labour of " Peruvians" is abolished for ever. The Spanish Constitution is abolished, being de- clared a system to enslave the people under laws calculated to make a small proportion of Europe happy, at the ex- pense of the New World. One of the American Papers contains the following cu- rious paragraph :—" We learn from Washington, that on Monday last a very unpleasant altercation took place at the President's table, between the Ministers of Great Britain and France— the irritation produced was so great, that after retiring from the table, one of tbe parties gave indications of proceeding to make a personal attack, which was prevented by the interference of the Representative of another foreign nation." Letters from Malta state, that the Government of the Island had issued a proclamation, prohibiting the expor- tation of warlike stores or ammunition. A vessel bound for Constantinople, with gunpowder and arms on board, • was put under embargo. H. W. W. Wynn, Esq. is appointed his Majesty's En- voy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary to the Confederated States of the Swiss Cantons. The Hon. W. Lennox Bathurst is appointed a Com- missioner of Bankrupts, in the room of the Hon. W. H. J. Scott, resigned. A superb cloak of the Highland costume is at present feeing prepared in Edinburgh for the King of Persia, by dsreet orders of that Monwso, The accounts of the Irish R-.- vi- niifc for the last year have been made public. They present an increase, as compared with the >* ear 1820, of 427,350/. 19.?. Sfd. The improvement is pretty equally distributed under the three great heads— Customs, Excise, and Assessed Taxes, with a small addition to the Post Office Revenue. Under other circumstances than the present, even this inconsiderable improvement in the Revenue of Ireland would be a sub- ject of just congratulation ; but this accession to the sums, extracted from that unfortunate country, is too notorious- ly unconnected with any improvement in its manufacture ( it has but one), or its agriculture ( external commerce it has none), to be treated as any indication of returning pros- perity. The additional 4- 27,000/. which has found its way to the Exchequer in 1821, must be ascribed to the injudicious and ill- timed transactions of last summer. The Irish Gentry, who rarely require any stimulus to extrava- gance, were invited, by these transactions, to a compe- tition of expensive amusements and indulgences, which of course tended to swell the Revenue, but which ulti- mately fell, as a dreadful visitation, upon their miserable tenantry, from " whose hard hands has been wrung" the increased Revenue, which iu that, view will scarcely be a subject for exultation with any friend of mankind. This, however, is, we imagine, the only good consequence which will now be pretended to have followed the King's visit to Ireland. With respect to " conciliation," of which so much lias been said, where is L - to be found ? The Orange Party have been confirmed and exasperated in their prejudices; and the Catholics have, upon the autho- rity of the Royal Rescript, been led to demand, as rights, privileges which, for that reason, have been refused to tliem; and the general result has been, that more of col- lision, contest, and acrimonious hostility has occurred be- tween the opposing parties within the last four months than during tile ten preceding years. The British sloop of war, Hind, Sir Chas. Burroughs, commander, arrived at New York, on 25th Dec. from Portsmouth. The Hind had jus'i arrived at Portsmouth, with the royal squadron, from Calais, when she received orders to proceed to New York, and was dispatched at three hours' notice, with documents to the British Con- sul at New York, relative to one of the chief Clerks in the Navy Office, London, who h: id absconded with a consi- derable sum of public money,, and sailed for America. An Officer of the Hind landed at New York, delivered the dispatches, and in one hour and a half, the man ( who had only arrived a few days with his wife,) was taken, and nearly all the property stolen, amounting to about 100,000 dollars, was recovered. Marquis Wellcsley has ordered the following splendid uniforms to be worn by the members of his household, on 6tate occasions, viz. sky- blue coat, lined with white silk and richly embroidered with, silver lace; the waistcoat richly embroidered. The undress is to consist of a brown coat, lined with yellow silk, buff' waistcoat and breeches. The buttons are to be gold, ornamented with a shamrock in the centre of a star. A Treasury Minute has been published, regulating the salaries of the clerks in the various Departments, with a view to economy. Hitherto, however, the heads of office remain untouched. The salary of one of our Ministers is equal to the salary of the President of the United States. A single case of this class affords more room for efficient and beneficial retrenchment than the salaries of a whole office of clerks. It seems that great reductions might be made in the Colonies; immense sums are squandered in all of them. Colonies which yielded net revenues before they came into our hands, though now higher taxed than ever, defray a very inconsiderable part of their own expen- diture, and thus become a heavy burden on this country. Preparations are being made for n matrimonial alliance between the Hon. Agar Ellis, the son of Lord Cliffden, and the Hon. Miss Howard, second daughter of Lord and Lady Morpeth. The Duchess of Orleans was delivered of a fifth son on Wednesday, at Paris. An investigation has lately we understand taken place in the Victualling- office, which has led to the discovery of great irregularities, and to some dismissals from high official situations. Near 25,000/. have been raised in Scotland towards erecting a National Monument there, to commemorate the events of the late war; the building is to be a copy of the Parthenon of Athens, and to be erected on Calton- hill, from the resemblance it bears to the Acropolis of Athens. The following is an extract from the will of the Duchess of Bourbon, which seems to have been made the very ' lay before that of her sudden death ! " I wish to be buried without any pomp or ceremony. Let abundant alms be given to the poor of my parish; this is the only magnifi- cence which_ I allow. I requesi in the most positive man- ner to be neither opened nor embalmed, nor exposed with my face uncovered, nor watched; but to be buried as speed- ily and as simply as possible." The King of France has given directions the requests of the will shall, as far as pos- sible, be complied with. Benjamin Hawes, Esq. who died at Worthing on Fri- day, aged 79, has bequeathed to each of the 21 following Institutions 1000/. three and a half per cent. Stock, after the death of a near and dear relation, who had constantly contributed to his health and comfort: POOR- RATE RETURNS. Besides,. the Population Returns another important work is in preparation— namely, Returns of the Sums Assessed, and the Sums' Levied', on account of the Poor in England and Wales."— The Population Returns are being digested by R. Phillips, Esq. the Secretary to the Speaker, who has about fifteen Clerks aiding him in the work ; and the digest of the Poor Returns, from 1813 to 1821 inclusive, ( which will prove, at the present time in parti- cular, a nlpst important statistical document,) is being prepared under the direction of R. Chambers, Esq, a Clerk to the House of Commons, and who is also assisted by a strong force of Clerks. Both these works, which are the results of Legislative Acts, and official returns from every parish and. district in England and Wales, it is expected, will be ready for delivery soon after the meeting of Parliament. At the latter end of the Session, all abstract of the intelligence gained by the returns to 1820 inclusive— that to March 1821, could not be prepared— was laid on the table of the House. It has since been printed. We shall give an outline of its curious and valuable contents. The first accounts shows the " amount of monies assessed and levied in England and Wales, at the several periods of which re- turns have been required by Parliament:" and this account in- cludes twelve different periods since 1743. The total sum expend- - VH if - LONDON GENUINE Royal Humane, Refuge for the Destitute, Foreigners in Distress, Philanthropic, St. Luke's Hospital, Magdalen Hospital, Mag- dalen Asylum, Indigent Blind, for the Relief of Prisoners for Small Debts, Jews' Poor, ( Mile- I! nd.) London Truss Soci- ety, General Penitentiary, London Hibernian Society, Lon- don Hospital, ( Whitechapel- road,) The Missionary, British and Foreign Bible, Religious Tract, Quaker's Poor- House, Methodist Preachers, Presbyterian ditto, Baptist ditto, Inde- pendent ditto, Roman Catholic ditto, Quakers' ditto. Mr. Hawes had no children, but numerous relations, a- rnong whom he has distributed the bulk of his property. In the parish of Mayfield, Sussex, there are at this time nineteen farms without tenants. At a public sale last week, in Staffordshire, under a dis- tress for rent, four draught horses were' sold for 5/. 1QJ. in the under- mentioned lots ; first horse, 2/. l'Oi. second, 1/. 7s.; third, 1/. 3s.; and fourth ten sHillings ! Good sound Oats were soldin Bideford market last week, at one shilling per bushel! The destruction of Sir Jacob Astley's splendid mansion in the North, was caused by the following singular cir- cumstance : A fire was lighted in a room that had not been occupied for some time, and in the chimney several jack- daws had built their nests. These took fire, and commu nicated to a beam that supported the roof, and the whole was in a flame before the accident was discovered. The Excise having received information than an illicit distillery was carried on under ground at a private house in Chandler- street, St. George's Market, the officerr re- paired thither on Wednesday j and seized a copper still, capable of containing about forty gallons, with all the ap- paratus requisite for distillation, together with a vast quan- tity of wash, spirits, & c. John Mackeah Collins was on Thursday brought before the presiding Magistrate at Worship- street Office, charged with marrying two women, his first wife being still alive. It appeared that the prisoner had married seven women, all of whom are now living; and that with Elizabeth Ma- son, to whom he was married in December, 1818, at Beth- nal Green church, he received 600/. A gang of coiners have been apprehended at Aldridge, in Staffordshire, who had in their possession a complete apparatus for coining. Saturday night an inquest was held at the Middlesex Hospital, on the body of James Thayer, aged 35, who was thrown from a window in Charles- street, Drury- lane, on the night of the 24th of September last. The evidence corresponded in every respect to that given before the Ma- gistrates, at Marlborough- street Office, and which was so fully detailed at the time. Thomas Burrell, who is now in custody, was seen in the house where the outrage was committed immediately after the fact, as was Haggerty the keeper of the house, who has escaped to Ireland.— The Jury after consulting half an hour, returned a ver- dict of— WilfUl Murder against these two, leaving the woman out. The Coroner issued his warrant for the ap- prehension of Haggerty, and his commitment of Burrell to Newgate. ed for the relief of the poor at that period, the average of " three years, 1748- 19- 59, was 689,971/. ; that for the years 1819- 20 was " 7,329,594/.— including sums expended in law during the latter year, the sum total was 8,672,252/. What an enormous increase in the course of 70 years 1 But some of the intermediate periods are so curious as to merit to be quoted, to show how rapidly the expense advanced when it began to rise:— Therelief of the poor in 1776 cost 1,521,732/. including law expcnces, removals, & c. 1,894,458/.; those law expenses, therefore, being 172,726/. The relief f « r- 1783 was 1,912,241/. including law . expenses, & c., 2,187,148/.; for 1803, the expense of relief was 4,077,391/. with law expcnccs, he. 5,302,070/.; and for 1813- 14, the relief ex- pense was 6,294,584/. with law expenses, & c. 8,511,863/. ; the law expences, removals, & c. being 2,217,279/. considerably more than one- third of the whole of the enormous cost of maintaining the poor thus having been expended in law. charges anil removals. The sums for 1819- 20 are given above. The next account abstracted ( that is, sums total only being given) is of the money expended for the maintenance of the poor in Eng- land and Wales in the several years from 1813 to 1820 inclusive, distinguishing the amount expended in towns from that expended in country parishes, and stating the number of parishes in each county, in which select vestries have been formed, or assistant overseers appointed. The result of this account is, that in Eng- land and Wales the expense of poor- relief ( exclusive of that of law charges, & c.) for the year ending March 25,1813, was 6,656,105/.; expended in towns 1,112,691/.; in other parishes 5,543,414/. For 1819- 20, expended in towns 1,371,4957. 10j.; in other parishes 5,958-, 098/. 10J. ; sum total, 7,329,594/. The sums for theintermedi- ate years need not be quoted ; those already given will tend to show the expensein towns andin " other parishes." Buttocomeatthcexact difference must be impossible, or nearly so, as considerable portions of town poor are not maintained in towns. The remaining portion of the information contained in this abstract states the number of Select Vestries to be 2,006 ; of Assistant Overseers to be 2,257. The next abstract is highly curious ; it is a statement of the mo- nies expended on the poor only in' England and Wales, in the several periods commencing the middle of last century, and reach- ing to March 25, 1820, with a table of the number of people^ ac- cording to the enumeration of 1811, and an account of the property assessed, under schedule ( A), in 1815. It gives all the counties, with the sums total illustrative of the above heads of information for cach county : these, of course, are too numerous to be quoted here. Those for Middlesex and Lancaster, however, will be pe- culiarly interesting, at the same time giving an idea of the ab- stract's plan:— Middlesex, poor relief 1750, 81,030/.; 1820, 030,206/.; population, 953,276 ; property assessed, 5,595,536/ Lancaster ( County), poor relief, 1750, 21,235/.: 1820, 320,441/.; population, 828,309; property assessed, 3,087,774/. Total for England and Wales ; poor relief, 1750, 689,971/.; for 1820 ( aver- age of two years), 7,430,622/.; population ™ 1811 was 10,150,615, exclusive of the army, navy, marines, and seamen navigating re- gistered vessels. Property assessed under schedule ( A), in 1815, 51,898,423/.; total sum assessed on account of the poor, for 1814- 15, was 7,508,853/.; for 1813- 14,8,511,863/. Thus nearly twenty millions went for property, tax and the poor! The abstract next gives an account of the average price of wheat per quarter, in England and Wales, from March 25, 1811, to March 25, 1821, prepared by Wm. Dowding, Receiver of Corn Returns ; it follows:— t. d. Years ending March 25, 1812 97 10 Wheat per quarter. ditto 1813 128 0 ditto 1814 98 0 ditto 1815 70 6 ditto 1816 61 10 ditto 1817 87 4 ditto 1818 90 7 ditto 1819 82 9 ditto 1820 69 5 ditto 1821 62 S Average price of Wheat per quarter for ten years, Ms. llri. The average of 1802- 3 was 63s. ' id. These several documents are curious and valuable, and cannot fail to be interesting to political economists. The following are the amounts expended for the main- tenance of the Poor in each county in England:— ' " ' Year ending 25th COUNTIES. March, 1820. ENGLAND. £. 1.

J" | p HE Medicines advertised for the relief of Bilious and 8 other complaints of the Bowels, are so numerous that the Proprietor of these Pills would not submit them to the notice of the Public, did he not believe them to be essentially different in their composition from those generally sold. Most, if not all tha advertised Aperient Pills have ALOES for their basis, und it has been clearly ascertained that in many instances the use of Aloes ia highly injurious: they almost invaiiably aggravate every case of PILES, and are frequently the principal means of inducing that painful complaint. Other Public Medicines, it is to he tearcd, contain Preparations- of MERCURY or ANTIMONY, which, though invaluable in the hands of the Physician, are altogether inadmissible in a medicine designed for family use. Tbe Pills now recommended to the Public arc entirely fret from those objectionable articles; they arc carefully prepared ivith drugs of the very best quality ; anil although by no means offered as a Specific for llie cure of every disease, they will, it is presumed, be found an excellent APERIENT FAMILY MEDICINE. In HABITUAL COSTIVENESS, OCCASIONAL OBSTRUCTIONS OP THE BOWELS, BILIOUS COMPLAINTS, HEAD- ACBES accom- panied with NAUSEA or SICKNESS, and all disorders arising from an overloaded state of the Stomach and alimentary Canal, they will prove decidedly beneficial. They require no confinement, and possess this peculiar and important advantage, that the BOW- ELS ARE NOT LEFT IN A CONFINED STATE BR THEIR USE.

GERMAN Papers to the 14th instant, received this morning, contain fresh rumours of the probability of war between Russia and Turkey; but we are fcinch inclined to believe they rest upon uo good founda- tion. There aVe several concurring circumstances which t, nd to strengthen our confidence in the intelligence, that the ultimatum of Russia has been accepted by the I ' arte; end it is not among the least of those circumstances, that the Ottoman Government is in no condition to provoke the hostility of so formidable a Power. Advices, we un derstand. have been received from Constantinople, dated ton the 25th Dec. announcing that " on that day the ulti- matum, ss modified by the common consent of the Am- bassadors of all tlse great Powers, was acceded to by the Divan, and immediately dispatched to St. Petersburg!!, for ratification." The fact of the signature of the ultima- tum was certainly believed at Constantinople. Advices from St. Petersburg!) to the 29th of December, fUte, that the Exchange, which has been considered a to- lerable index of political events, had risen from to 0 § and a fraction, which is a considerable advance, ' i bus far. at least, the notion of a war with Turkey, is discoun- teninced. In addition, we may mention that the letters state, that of late no dispatches had been received from Constantinople, and that no answer had been obtained to the ultimatum. They also discountenance totally the con- tent!! of the Paris papers, regarding certain important move- ments in the Russian armies upon the frontiers of Tur- key. In fact, little reliance is to be placed upon these as- sertions, coming- in so questionable a shape. ^ Our letters notice the continuance of farces on the Pruth, but at the same time we are told that they are smaller than they have been. A strong feeling prevailed at St, Petersburg)!, at the date when the last advices came away, that the Divan at Constantinople would acquiesce in the demands of Rus- sia. As to what those demands may be,. not a hint is yet given from any quarter. Madrid Papers to tiie lOtli inst. arrived yesterday. A Cadiz Journal has published a letter from . Monte Video, giving an account of the capture of Lima, but expressing, at the same time, confident hopes that the Royalists will be able ta recovcr possession of it, and to expel the inva- ders from Peru. The Madrid Gazette officially announces that the King had at length accepted the resignation of the following Ministers of State:— Bardaxi, Foreign Affairs; Felici, In- terior; Salvador, War; and Vallgo, Finance. It is only necessary to read the accompanying declaration of his Majesty to be convinced of the thraldrom in which lie is held by the factious. " These resignations," he says, " I have " hitherto declined to accept; but considering the present circumstances, I have now allowed them to retire; declaring, however, that I am satisfied with their good ser- vieas— their attachment to the Constitution— their loyalty to my person— and their zeal for the public good." This eulogy probably enumerates the very qualities which made them hateful to thoss who call for their removal. But to what a deplorable condition must Ferdinand he reduced, when he finds himself constrained to part with such faith- ful servants, and such honourable Ministers, in obedience to the insolent clamour of. rebels.. It was not determined at the date of these papers, who were to be the successors of the retired Ministers; but, ad interim, the respective duties of the Interior, War, and Finance, have been in- trusted to MM. Cavo- Manuel, Escadero, and Imar. The country on the north bank of the river Plate, op- posite Buenos Ayres, & c. has been annexed to the Crown of Portugal, under the title of the Cisplatine State, and a free trade with the whole western coast of that extensive country is anticipated. We have received a few American Papers this morning, but only one day later than those previously received. They contain nothing of particular, importance. A Resolution bad passed the House of Representatives of Kentucky, abolishing imprisonment for debt, except in cases of fraud. The Frankfort Gazette says, there is no doubt but a ma- jority of the Senate is in favour of the Resolution. Letters from Rome state, that the Pope was so danger- ously ill, that his death was expected every moment. The Archduke Rodolph of Austria, who was made a Cardinal two years ago, is certain to succeed to the Chair. We think we can, with the utmost confidence, assure our readers, that it is in contemplation with Ministers to propose ft commutation of five millions of those taxes which art- faund to press most heavily upon agriculture and the foor, for a tax upon income arising out of property.

A Special Assembly of the Corporation of Norwich was summoned for Monday last, for the purpose of pre- senting to the Rectory of Carleton St- Mary, Norfolk, anil of nominating to the Curacy of St. Etheldred in Norwich, both vacant by the decease of the Rev. John Deacon. The Rev. Robert John Francis, brother of Aldermen Francis, was presented to the Rectory, anrl the Alderman unani- mously elected the Rev. Joseph Carter to the Curacy ; but the Commons chose the Rev. Mr. Deacon, son of the LoSs OF THE LADY LUSHINGTON INDIAMAN.— ilis Recount of the calamity is from one of the surviving sufferers, and dated Calcutta, Aug. 25 « We sailed from Madras or, the 5th, and having four passengers to land at Coringa, saw the light- house at midnight on the 7th ; tacked about, in hopes of being able to land the four passengers ( above mentioned) in the morning, but owing to the strong currents, we were considerably to leeward ot the port by day - light; we endeavoured two days and a night, to regain tlie windward, but finding we only lost ground, cast anchor on the Northward of Coringa. The surf ran very high for two days, so we could have no communication with shore ; we tried to weigh anchor, and drop down to Pcnticollah, but all endeavours were ineffectual, when the cable parted and night had come on. The Captain gave orders to stand out to - st- a until twelve o clock at night, and then tack in to the land ; tlio chief mate took the command of the deck at midnight, anil thinking we hail sailed so far from the land that we could not possibly reach, it before day- break, the ship tacked— a breeze having sprung up ivfe were alarmed bv the ship striking sliglMy on tlie sand ab'OUt four o'clock in the morning. Nothing can paint the distressing scene ; the high land was just perceptible, . and every wave driving over tile ship added to our horrible situation. In half an hour every mast was over the ship's side ( ta leeward ;) the ship had drifted into a tre- mendous surf, every boat was staved in the attempt to lower them, and the land half a mile on our lee ; we had nothing to trust to but the waves, and to place our confidence in the Almighty- The scene' of horror and distress then became indescribable. The cries of the females and children were heart- rending. It was said that the bottom had parted from the upper works, every person was naked, and up to the middle in water, and the distress was in- creasing every moment. Three spars of wood were got over the side, on which six persons, including myself, providentially reached the shore ; but we were so much exhausted, that had not the na- tives come to our assistance, the return of the surf would have carried us out again. We found on the shore a sailor who had been washed overboard, to whom the safety of so many lives is owing: lie fortunately spoke the language, and succeeded in get- ting four catamarans from the shore to the assistance of the suffer- ers; a large boat was got of!', but could get no nearer than 100 yards, anil with difficulty was kept above water. At eleven the ship parted across the centre, and all the crew and passengers were obliged tuget. on the masts, to have the ship as a. break water, from which masts were washed away, being so fatigued they could not hold on. The catamarans kept at work until two o'clock, when the wind increased so that they could not get near the wreck, and had afterwards to desist, finding it impossible to be of further use. A Frenchman, his wife, and two daughters, with two of the crew were. seen on the wreck ; at four o'clock the stern parted, on which the French lady, with her eldest daughter, reached the shore; the father, with the other daughter, perished, as did the two sailors, one of whom was seen at dark sticking to the remains of the bows, which were held by the anchors. The shore, for six miles, was strewed with the ship and cargo, The number lost was 22, among tvhom, we regret to state, were Capt. Hampton, 7dl Madras Na- tive Infantry, Ensign Wright, Mr. Wilson, formerly purser in the country service, Mr. Rousseau and his daughter, and Mr. Lys- ter, 2il officer of the Lushington. The ship parted in two at 11 A. M. and before evening Scarce a vestige of her was visible. Mrs. Rousseau, who was saved, was on the stern, and her unfortunat- husband was on the stem when she parted. Major Wetherall and his Lady are likewise quite safei and Mr. Carpenter, only son of Col. Carpenter. The situation of the survivors is said to have been truly deplorable; all were nearly without clothes. Tile Com- mander is acquitted of all blame.",— India Gazette. • NOVEL EXHIBITION.— A singular invention was yes- terday submitted, in a private way, to a number of Gentlemen, at Peerless Pool, in the City- road. Mr. Brady, who was lately seen in the Bay of Dublin, and who had the honour of attracting the attention of his Majesty during his late visit to the sister kingdom, exhibited his marine carriage on the large piece of' water at the above place. The experiment was perfectly successful. A small car or chaise, capable of containing one person, is elevated some feet above three buoys filled with compressed air. One of these is in front, beneath the representation of a sea horse, the other two are behind. These sustain the vehicle, which is impelled by pad- dles placed at. the bottom of the car. The paddles are put in mo tion by turning a handle, which rises, in front of. the charioteer, ft moves forward or backward at the- pleasure of the individual, and can be turned by means, of lilies which pass to the horse in front like common reins, and are used in nearly the same way. It can travel at the rate of three miles an hour, and the effort which impels it, is considered a healthful exercise. Tlie present machine was hastily got up in honour of the arrival of the King in Ireland, it may be capable of improvement, but in its pre. pent state it lias much to recommend it to notice. Nothing can be more steady and apparently secure, than the car thus worked ; and the inventor considers it would be found very useful and agreeable on hikes for fishing, or for those xvho court the amuse- ment of shooting water fowl. It is provided with conveniencies for carryinga gun and fishing tackle, and also with a trunk or bin, in which provision for a day or two may be safely stored. The whole afforded considerable gratification to those who inspected it.

Should they not be able to agree, the presentation will lapse to the Bishop of the Diocese. The elder Miss Loveday has published a long and not very dutiful reply to her father's petition. The answer is ^ ust such a production as might be expected from the joint labour of a French lawyer and a Catholic priest, exercised upon facts furnished by the invention of a young lady at a boarding school. Mademoiselle Reboul has also appealed to the public ; but she stands convicted of fraud and falsehood upon evi- dence so clear ( her own profession to Mr. Loveday, that " he need have no fear on the subject of his daughter's religion,") that her appeal will scarcely succeed with any one. A letter from Tralee, dated Jan. 16, states the arrest of a fellow named Dennis Cluvane, alias Captain Rock, one of the Leaders of the White Boys in that district. A dread- ful affray had occurred between 500 of the peasantry, and a party of the Clonakilty Yeomanry, in an attempt to res- cue two prisoners who had been detected in illicit distil- lation. The officer cautioned them, that if they advanced lie would shoot the principal prisoner; but so far was this from deterring them, that they instantly made a despe- rate attack, with stones, & c,; when the officer accordingly ikept his word, and shot one of the prisoners. A general attack then commenced, when the military fired upwards of sixty rounds, killing several of the assailants, driving them entirely off', and securing the other prisoner, ar. d th" still which they had seized. A melancholy accident happened a few days ago be- tween Portreith and Gwithian. Several persons were ac- tively employed in picking up floating boxes of oranges, when Rogers, having ventured too far, was carried out to sea. His brother, who was present, ' rushed to his assistance, and seized him by the arm ; but Rogers find- ing that his strength was nearly exhausted, said, " I know tbr. t I shall be drowned, and if you do not leave me, you will be drowned too— let me go, and save yourself." The brothel' finding there was no possibility of saving both, reluctantly left Rogers to his fate, anil he was drowned.— Cornwall Gazette. OXFORD, Jan. 86.— Tuesday, the Rev. Chas. Taylor, M.

CEREBRAL EXAMINATION.— The bodies of the two un- fortunate men, Peter Heaman and Francois Gautiez, who were executed oil Lcith Sands, on Wednesday week, for piracy and mur- der, having been delivered over to the professor of anatomy, agree- ably to the sentence of the Court of Admiralty, the brain of one of the1 deceased was inspected as early as possible after death. The body of Francois Gautiez had arrivi- d at. the dissecting- room, and the brain was opened at, about two hours arid a quarter from the period of execution. The vertebra.' of the neck had not been dis- located, and the appearances of the brain differed in no, respect from those usually seen on examining that organ in persons who have died from suffocation. There was little or no distension of the blood - vessels of the brain, cerebellum, or medulla oblongata ; no effusion of blood either into the. substance of ( he brain or ventricles, and little iffu - iuii between the membranes. The other subject ( Heaman) has not vet been dissected, but a very fine full length cist hw. b « s taken fioai him by Mr. Joseph— Edinburgh Star. IMPORTANT DISCUSSION TO PARISHES.— At the Sur- rey Sessions, a case of great importance was brought under the consideration of the Court, and was argued at considerable length, by Mr. Heath, for the appellant parish, Ilford, and by Mr. Turton, for the respondent parish, Lingford. ft involved a most import- ant question of settlement which was one on which the Judges of the Court of Knur's Bench were divided in opinion, and the case was referred back to the Sessions for a re- hearing. The question was, whether the luring of a servant, at a month's warning, or a month's wages, was a general hiring," tiiat entitled the pauper to a settlement in the parish where he or she should so serve for upwards of a twelvemonth— The pauper, Mary Webb, stated, that she was hired by a Mrs. Turl, a farmer's wife at llford, on the 10th of January, 1820, for a month, at eight shillings the wages. The mistress, however, it appeared, in the course ol' the case, was fearful that she should lose her servant in the course of the sum- mer, when the latter might make more money by harvesting, and immediately after made a fresh, bargain, agreeing with tiie witness that she should continue with her during the summer, at the rate of 51. per annum, and on the same terms ( i. c.) a month's warning, or a month's wages, in case of dismissal. The witness continued in this service, until the 1st of March in the following year, when it happened that, she had a child, and was turned away. As her month did not expire until the 10 th, her mistress gave her a month's wages— Mr. Heath argued at considerable length, that this was a hiring from month to month, which did not entitle the pauper to any settlement at llford. _ Mr. Turton, with much ability, combatted a variety of cases citei'ijigainst him, and in behalf of the respondent parish contend- ed, that this was a hiring for a general and indefinite period, and which should be considered legally as a yearly hiring that entitled a pauper to a settlement. There was a full bench of Magistrates. The Court consulted for a considerable time, and ultimately decided by a majority of one voice only, that a hiring on a month's warning, or a month's wages, was a good service, which entitled die pauper to a settle- ment at Ilford. SHOCKING SUICIDES.— Yesterday morning, about eight o'clock, Mr. G. Anderson, ropemaker, of White- street and Kent- street, Borough, went to the house of- Mr. Shallard, in Devonshire- street, Newingtpn, where ( on accountof some family dispute) his wife and daughter resided. On going into their apartments he complained of ' mess and went down stairs into the water- closet, where he was soon afterwards found, with his throat cut from ear to ear. The unhappy man was carried up stairs to bed, and se- veral medical gentlemen attending, the wound was sewn up, but he died soon afterwards in the greatest agony. Thirty sovereigns w ere found in his pockets. About the same hour a melancholy event took place at the house of George Glasspool, Esq. No. 9, Lant- street, Borough. Mr. G. who held a situation in the Victualling department, arose at his usual hour, and proceeded down stairs from liis chamber into the kitchen ; shortly after tile bed- room bell rang, and the maid ser- vant went up stairs to attend on Mrs. G. Almost immediately after they had left the kitchen, a loud report of a pistol was heard, followed by a horrid groan. The servants lost no time in going down stairs, when on entering the kitchen, they discovered' their unfortunate master lying on the floor weltering in his blood. A large horse pistol was lying by his side, with which he had shot' himself completely through the heart. Mr. Baylis, a surgeon, was prompt in attendance, but the unfortunate gentleman was quite dead. On the tragical event being communicated to Mrs. G. she swooned, and continues in a very precarious state. Yes- terday an inquest was iiekl on the body, when a gentleman from the Victualling Office attended by desire of the Commissioners, from whose statement it appeared that a number of clerks, were about to be dismissed from the Victualling Office. The examina- tion of the deceased had been taken previous to his dismissal-; when tii • deceased signed the. same, he said, I have now signed my death warrant. He had no doubt the deceased was in a de- ranged state. The Jury consulted for a few moments, and re- turned a verdict— That the deceased had shot himself, ' ociiijj at the tiaie ia a state pf temporary derangement FIVE GUINEAS REWARD. " prHEREAS on Tuesday evening last, a FEMALE ? 7 CHILD, about three months old, was left near the door of the House of Industry, of Tewkesbury, dressed in a white frock, and two lace caps.

THE Gazette of this evening contains the following appointments: Wm. Erskine, Esq. Advocate, to be one of the Lords of Session iu Scotland, vice C. J. Boswell, E « q. resigned ; A. Maconochie, Esq. Advocate, to be Sheriff De- pute of tlie shires of Orkney and Zetland, rice Wm. Erskine, Esq.; Robert Hamilton, Esq. Advocate, to be one of the Six Ordinary Clerks of Session in Scotland, and Ilcctor M'Donald Buchanan, K « f. tn he Clerk of the King's Processes in Scotland, which offices were lately- held by David Ilume, Esq,, appointed a Baron of the Court of Exchequer. Arc have received the Paris Papers of Wednesday. Monday, the anniversary of Louis XVI. having been observed as a strict holiday, no Papers were printed for Tuesday. On the lat- ter. day the debate on the project of the law of the press, introduced by M. de Serre, was resumed: in the Chamber of Deputies, and again adjourned. Previously to the debate, a petition was presented from a M. Leaumont, proposing nothing short, of hostilities against the Island of Hayti. for the purpose of recovering possession of its territory. The insanity of such a project was clearly shown by M. Laisne dc Villeveque, who stated, that only an army of 30,001) men, a fleet of 30 ships of the line, and a proportionate num- ber of smaller vessels, with artillery, & c. could, by possibility succeed in so hazardous an enterprise; that the greatest part of this force would perish ; and, if victory remained with the sur- viving French, it would be a barren triumph over ashes and ruins. An article from Petersburgh, in one- of tlic French Pa- pers, confirms the accounts of the movements of the Russian and Turkish Armies. A letter from Nuremberg states, that the King of Wirtemberg is about to form a levy of 4000 men, of the age of twenty or twenty- one years. At Vienna, news is said to have been received that the Pacha of Trebisond had raised the standard of revolt, and secretly declared to the Persians that he was determined to make common cause with them, if they would acknowledge his independence. A letter from Hamburgh mentions, that in consequence of the want of snow, the intercourse or St. Petersburg)! with the in- terior is for the most part impeded, and that ill consequence many of the Provinces of Russia are in want of grain. Accounts from Sweden likewise state, that from want of snow, the bringing up of iron to the seaports is almost altogether impeded. A letter from Havannah', dated Dec. 10, says ; " On the 30th of November we had a terrible deluge. 1 va. i. iii. b. ed, in a room considerably elevated from the ground, and being awakened by the noise of the heavy torrent, found the water had entirely co- vered the floor. I have never before heard of so extraordinary a rain. For two days I could not leave my house, the streets being full of water like rivers. It ii feared much havock has been done on the sugar plantations; anu it is said the, canes are so much in- jured as to ruin the prospect of the next crop. As to the coffee, all that was not gathered from- the trees, hr. s been inundated and ' spread over the ground." OPENING OF PARLIAMENT— As we stated some weeks ago, the King will open the- approaching Session of Parliament in perwm, and the i the due effect of of meeting the I — _. . . The old House of Lords, the Painted Chamber, & c. through which liis Majesty has to pass in his way to the Throne in the House of Lords, are undergoing complete cleansing mid- repair; new mat- ting and carpetliug are being put down ; and hi. the body of the " House, the seats, wool- sacks, & c. are being re- covered. The ar- rangements for the admission of Peeresses, Foreign Ambassadors, and other spectators, to the House of Lords, and to the other grand apartments leading to the House, through which his Majesty will proceed, will be under the sole control of Lord Gwydyr. the acting Lord Great Chamberlain of England, as " to him belongs the Government of the whole Palace of Westminster." FIrE A fire broke out at one o'clock this morning, in the extensive cooperage of Messrs. Rhodes and Co. sugar- bakers, in Rupert- square, at the bottom of Lambeth- street, Whitechapel. Oil its first breaking out it raged with great fury, threatening de- struction to the two sugar- houses between which the cooperage was situate. The engines soon arrived, and having a good sup- ply of water, the firemen were enabled not only to save the houses, but also the new German Church, from which it was separated only by a narrow passage. The whole of the cooperage, with the valuable property, were totally destroyed, as was the communi- cating gallery between the two houses, before the flames were ex- tinguished.

We earnestly recommend the lovers of science, and those enlightened spirits generally, who can feelT. n interest in the* beau- ties and v. onders of Nature, to attend Mr. Rogers's Lecture at the Theatre this evening. His Microscopic Apparatus is, we are as- sured, the most powerful in Europe, and capable of magnifying tiie cubes of minute objects to the astonishing degree of I ' Jo, 000,000 times! It is but justice to add, that the Bath and Bristol Papers speak of this gentleman in the highest terms of panegyric. We are informed, that Mr. it.' s engagements'positively prevent his giving more than one Lecture in Gloucester. At the late Quarter Sessions for the County of Here- ford, the thanks of the Magistrate!" were, oi} the motion of Sir H. Hoskyns, Bart, seconded by Earl Somers ' and Sir G. Cornewall, j Bart, ordered to be presented to the Rev. John Lilly, the Chair- } man, for his highly important services to the county. On Tuesday evening last, about seven o'clock, a female child, about three montli3 old, was left. near the outer gate of the Tewkesbury House of Industry, where it was shortly afterwards discovered by the porter, who was attracted' to the spot by the cries of the poor little outcast. She was instantly conveyed to tile House, where every possible care has been taken of her; and though the most diligent efforts of the parish officers to find out. the unna- tural mother have as yet been unavailing, it is ardently hoped that an act at which humanity shudders, and to which even brutes are strangers, will not long escape detection and punishment Sccadvt. On Monday evening last, about nine o'clock, as Mr. John Townsend, Sheriff's- officer, of Tewkesbury, was returning home or. horseback from Evesham, he was stopped at Hinton by three ruffians, armed with bludgeons, who beat him most cruelly, and robbed him of all the money he had about him, amounting to between four and five pounds, with which they got clear off. A young man of the name of Lane fell from the roof of one of the Cheltenham coaches, a few nights since, j list as it reached the house of his uncle, the Golden Pheasant, on the road to this city, and died instantly. lie vas subject to fits. STEAM BOAT— A well constructed decked pleasure boat, the property, and built under the inspection of Samuel Anthony, rite model, it is expected she will prove a fast sailer. She glided into the water in fine style, and the novelty of the sight attracted a great number of spectators. She has since had her boiler, ( made by Horton,) and other parts of her machinery put on board, and now draws only eleven inches of water. FII'. ES.— At half- past sis o'clock on Wednesday morning, a servant boy having gone with a lighted candle into a stable at per- to a Thursday being the anniversary of the birth of the late illustrious Statesman, the Right Hon. Charles James Fox, the An- nual Meeting of the Gloucestershire Constitutional Whig Club was held in honour of the event, and a most respectable party of fifty gentlemen, comprising many of the first character and con- sequence in the county, assembled on the occasion. Previous to the dinner hour, the usual business of the Club was transacted, and a number of new Members were proposed and elected. Soon after four, the party followed their President, Colonel Berkeley, to the dining- room, where Mr. Dowling had catered for them with his wonted liberality. On the removal of ( he cloth, a round of pa- triotic and constitutional toasts, illustrative of the principles of the Club, engaged the attention of the company, and elicited immense applause. The following were among the most interesting: The King.— The immortal Memory of Chas. James Fox, stand- ing and in solemn silar. ee— The Duke of York. The Chairman, in very handsome terms, proposed the health of The whig Member for the. County, Sir William Guise, Bart. which was received with reiterated applause, and drank with three times three. Sir Wm. Guise made his acknowlegments for the honour done him, and expressed his happiness at meeting so nu- merous and respectable a party as were there assembled. He was about, in a few days, to recommence his parliamentary duties; but was sorry to say, that, as long as the House of Commons was constituted as at present, he was fearful not much good would arise to the country from their labours. A great majority of that House, consisted of placemen, pensioners, or interested indivi- duals, who were absolutely feeding upon the distresses of the peo- ple ; and it was hopeless to look for economy, retrenchment, or reform at their hands, while they had it in their power to exercise such an unlimited controul over the public purse. The Hon. Ba- ronet then made some remarks upon the distress which now bore so hard upon the agricultural part of the community, which he at- tributed solely to excessive taxation. It was easy to foresee, that one immediate consequence of this state of affairs would be an obligation upon the great landed proprietors to reduce their es- tablishments, and in fact an instance had that day been communi- cated to him where such had absolutely been the case. The lion. Baronet's speech was heard throughout with marked attention and applause ; and having sat down, he again rose, and proposed the health of The President, which was drank with great enthusiasm. Colonel Berkeley returned thanks in an energetic speech ; and, d writing at some length, on the admirable principles upon which the Club was founded, and the patriotic and constitutional purposes it was intended, to promote, expressed his firm determination to abide by it to the last- - The gallant President next proposed the health of the staunch and approved Representative of the City of Gloucester, Colonel Webb; which having received due and me- rited honour, Colonel W. briefly returned thanks; and observed, that wlieri he reflected upon the distresses of the country, which were becoming every day more and more apparent, he could not but feci ah additional pang of grief at the loss of that great States- man whose birth they were that day met to celebrate, and whose genius would have been of incalculable service to the nation un- der the existing circumstances. After drinking Prosperity to the Whig Club of the County of Gloucester, the Chairman, with a short eulogium, proposed the health of Mr. Barrett. Member for Richmond, who had that day honoured them with his presence. Mr. Barrett, in returning thanks for the honour which had been conferred upon him, expressed his sense of the distinguished com- pliment, which was the more gratifying as proceeding from so re- spectable and numerous a Meeting. The Hon. Genileman then commenced, in an animated display cf eloquence, to call the at- tention of the assembly to the unparalleled distress which now per- vaded every part of the kingdom, and which was solely attribut- able, lie contended, to the lavish expenditure of the Government, and their pertinacious adherence to the system of oppressive taxa- tion, which had emanated from that " heaven- born Minister, Mr. Pitt." Mr. Barrett was glad to see the worshippers of the Pittite System roaring out their political recantations, condemning taxa- tion, and feelingly lamenting the distresses of the country, as if both were not exclusively chargeable to themselves. He inferred from this, that the system was beginning to pinch, and that their demands upon tile public purse were not so readily met as for- merly. As long as their wants were satisfied, all pity and fellow- feeling with their wretched fellow- creatures were excluded from their breasts, and not a murmur from them was to be heard. Mr. li. here, with a strong vein of ridicule, commented upon the ruinous measures which had been introduced by this Statesman— measures which had overwhelmed the nation with a debt past all hope of redemption, and plunged it into a state of irremediable dif- ficulty and distress. The followers and admirers of this deplorable system and its author, the Ministers of the day and their adhe- rents, had proved themselves worthy scions of their parent stock, and weie so wrapped up in admiration of their divinity, so intent upon seizing every opportunity of celebrating his apotheosis, that they were alike blind to the misery of which they were the cause, and deaf to the just complaints and grievances of the people. He next made some pointed remarks upon the absurd and palpable inconsistency of an individual, who, upon a recent occasion, had in the same sentence extolled the provident wisdom of Mr. Pitt in establishing the Sinking Fund for the reduction of the National Debt, and lauded the present Ministry to the skies for applying this fund to purposes which its projector never intended ! This was indeed a practical specimen of what was commonly called blow- ing hot and cold with the same breath ; but nothing could exceed the glaring contradictions of some of these blind ' devotees, who con- sider every act as perfect which either emanated from Mr. Pitt, or has been adopted by his followers. In conclusion, he observed, that he was about to touch with much diffidence upon a subject, the suggestion of which, in his situation, demanded an apoltigy ; he alluded to the expediency of a measure, which was now in pro- gress in other parts of the kingdom— namely, through the medium of a County Meeting, to adopt the only Constitutional mode which was now left to them, cf laying their complaints at the foot of the Throne, and before both Houses of Parliament, lie intreated them to reflect upon the construction which would be placed upon their silence— that they were neither dissatisfied with taxation, nor suli'eting from its consequent effects, but that they were satis- fied, and approved of the acts of Ministers. They would, besides, lose the only opportunity which might ever present itself, of effec- tually ridding the country of a system which existed independent of King and People, and which must, if persisted in, degrade the Vimtte, FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY.

A considerable quantity of corfi has been consumed, and the out- offices nearly destroyed ; but by the prompt and active as- sistance of the neighbourhood, the dwelling house and other va- luable property have been saved from the flames. About seven o'clock in thr morning cf Friday se'nnight, a ser- vant girl at Cwm- Mawr, in the parish of Llanarthney, Carmar- thenshire, having taken a candle without a lantern to tile cow- house to feed the cattle, and finding not enough of straw, went a- cross the yard for some more, leaving the caudle in a hole in the wall.. After remaining in the barn a few minutes, flames were seen issuing out through the door, and although the workmen and servants were almost immediately on the spot, the fire raged with such fury, that tile house was in a very snort time burnt to the ground, and, shocking. to relate, four cows, two heifers in calf, two oxen, and a sucking calf perished in the flames. Fifteen head of cattle, and the kitchen and store- house adjoining, were saved thro' the exertions of the workmen and neighbours, from the devouring element. DARING ATTEMPT AT Robbery !— On Saturelav se'n- night, about seven o'clock in the evening, as Mr. Edmund Rudge, the opulent pedestrian tanner, of Tewkesbury, was returning home from our market, he was knocked down at the top of the pitch at Southwick, by a fellow who came suddenly behind him aimed with a large bludgeon, having a quantity of lead or other heavy metal at one end thereof; and before Mr. Itudge could recover himself, lie again felt the weight of the deadly weapon, and at the same time was peremptorily ordered to deliver his money. Not- withstanding bis head was badly fractured, he contrived to get upon his legs, and declared he would not part with his money but with his life: being a ve' v athletic man, and the anxiety to save a considerable sum of money which lie had about him, perhaps gave him additional vigour, he grappled hard with the villain for the possession of the bludgeon, and in the struggle both fell to the ground, in which position they remained a considerable time, some- times one being tippet most and sometimes the other. At length the sound of hones' feet was heard at a distance, and the fellow escaped without accomplishing his object, but not until he had in- flicted no less than live severe contusions on the head of his cou- rageous opponent. Ill the contest, Mr. Itudge lost his liat, which was picked up the same evening by a person travelling along the road ; and though the fractured head lie received would have been sufficient to have given some more timid souls a fever at the least, and exposed them to the lancet of the phlebotomist, arid the nau- seous cirtrgs of the apothecary, for weeks or months, yet he took no further notice of it than deliberately to pursue his walk bare- beaded home, " His ringlets all clotted with gore," where he applied a little common turpentine to the wounds, and tied Iii= head up in a handkerchief— ithe mingled streaks of blood and turpentine, till of which were suffered to remain undisturbed on his face, giving him a most grotesque appearance; and before daylight on the Monday morning, he was pursuing liis daily occupation up to his middle in one of his own tan- pits, as if nothing had happened. Were we even to hint at the amount of the wealth which it is presumed this extraordinary individual pos- sesses, we t: ould hardly expect our readers would believe us when we asserted, that he, who could so well afford to indulge himself in every luxury of which this life is susceptible,— who has neither wife, child, nor even domestic, on whom he can hereafter bestow his great riches,— should continue to walk to our market and home again every Saturday, which he has now regularly done for up- wards of thirty years, regardless alike of the seasons, and of the state of the roads. Nor is this all, for independent of those walks, and of the laborious duties in which he may be found weekly en- gaged at market, he has probably done half a day's labour in the tail- yard befe> re he left home, and allotted himself perhaps the other half to accomplish alter his return.

Phillimore Hicks, Esq. here rose, and, after passing a well merited eologium upon the public conduct and indefatigable re- searches of Mr. Hume, proposed that gentleman's health, which was tli ank with great enthusiasm. In the course of this address, Mr. Hicks, in alluding to the distresses of the times, made some ingenious and apposite remarks upon the impolicy and injustice of all restrictive enactments upon trade, commerce, and agricul- tural produce; and demonstrated the fallacy of the idea, that any relief could be eventually afforded by having recourse to prohibi- tory measures. This was followed by, The Clothing Interest— The Clergy of the Diocese.^— The Mayor and Corporation of Gloucester— Lord Howard— Col. Berkeley, and the box Hounds— General Guise.— Mr. Wintour Harris, and the Whigs of Bristol— The Cause for which Hampden bled in the field, and Sydney on the scaffold.— The Agricultural Interest,— § c. ife. < fc. & c. The evening Was further enlivened by songs from various gen- tlemen, and the day was crowned with that enjoyment and good humour which must ever accompany unanimity of opinion, and the social interchange of reciprocal sentiment. The party did not finally separate till a late hour. THE BERKELEY HOUNDS— On Monday last threw off at Queen Wood ; found, and after running in cover broke, went away over Cleeve and Nottingham Hills to Gotherington Grove, from thence nearly to Wincbcomb, which they left on the right, making a turn round- through Greet Grovf, through the covers, round Stanley Hill, to Gotherington Grove again, and thence across the vale to Queen Wood ; from thence through the cop- pices on Mr. Agg's plantations, then turned to the left across the hills to Puckham Serubbs, from thence " through West Wood, Humble Bee, Low Willis's coppice, through Bisbeach and Hal- ling Scrubbs, and when within a field of the Great Woods at Guiting, whipped off at about half- past four o'clock, after a run of five hours and a half.— On Tuesday, the hounds met at Chat- comb Wood, where they found, and and ran through Illcot Wood over the hills to Colesborne, turned through Cowley Wood to Side- bottom; doubled, ar. d ran back to Cowley Wood to earth, after very hard running for one hour and a half. DISCOVERY or A GANG OF HOUSEBREAKERS— We hava much pleasure in stating that three of the notorious gang of house- breakers, who have lately infested Bristol and its neighbourhood, are in custody ; and there is little doubt of their being committed upon three at least of the charges which have been preferred a gainst them. Two of these are Londoners, and the other is a Bristolian. Information was obtained, that a woman of the town, with whom one of the Londoners had cohabited in Bristol, had re- ceived a request that she would reply by return of post, whether she would join her paramour in the metropolis or not; and that her answer was to be directed to the rogue at the Post- office in Lom- bard- street. The Magistrates, who iieard of the information at the moment the mail was starting for town, sent one of their offi- cers in it, anil at ten o'clock the following morning the gentleman called for his letter, and was immediately secured. The lodgings of the other wera discovered, and oil all officer paying him a morn- ing call, he answered the knock at the door in propria persona, and he was also secured. The person of a fourth offender is so well known. —- •— REPORT of the COMMITTEE of MANAGERS of the ABERGAVENNY SAVINGS BANK, with a gene- GLOUCESTER. INFIRMARY, January 24, 1B22.

An account of all tlie Weekly Newspapers published in Lon- on on Saturdays and Sundays, and also of those Sunday prints of which there is a Monday edition, laid before Parliament, has suggested to us the idea, that a general view of the Newspaper press, as it exists at the present time, might not be an unaccept- able paper to lay before our renders. In many cases it is impos- « ib e to do more than approximate facts; but, from oar inquiries into the_ subject, we will venture to say, that the result of our in- vestigation will be found to coincide, very nearly, with the true rtate of the ease. When this is looked at, the prodigious extent of this spccics of periodical circulation, and its consequently pro- digious effects upon the minds of the people, will strike every thinking person with wonder; and the influence upon manners, as well as the political and moral influence of these slight hut ever acting engines, will merit, perhaps obtain, a graver consideration than lias ever yet been given to them in a comprehensive form. We shall begin with the Parliamentary Return. Even in its limited scale, the document contains the names of forty- two jour- nals; of these, however, several had perished between 1817 and 1820, the years embraced in the record ; the remaining number consequently stands at thirty- two ; but, several have originated in the year 1821, not comprised in this list, which would carry the number to within four or five of the first total. Of these, tveiity- two have taken from the stamp- office within the year, above three millions and p. quarter of stamps, the lowest number being 1125, the highest 992,500. The other journals enumerated, probably purchase their stamps from their stationers, and therefore the Stamp- office could furnish no clue to their demand. The num- ber of advertisements on which duties were paid by these journals in 1( 120 ist in round numbers, about 23,2501: and the total amount of the tax they paid to the Treasury, about 40,000/.* It is not within our limits to name all the journals to which the foregoing epit. ime applies ; suffice it to mention those of the largest sale:— Bell's Weekly Dispatch, the Englishman ( the highest Sun- day), the Examiner, the Guardian, and the Literary and London Literary Gazette ( the highest Saturday), are at between yearly 130,000, and 200,000 ; t) ie County Herald above 200,000 ; Bell's Weekly Messenger, and the News above 600,000 ; and the Ob- server, above 900,000. The three latter,. as well as the Examiner, publish on two days, the Sunday and Monday, ( which makes the distinction in the Englishman and Literary Gazette above paren- thetically noticed), as do many others of what are called Sunday Newspapers. It is observable, from the return, that, in several instances, there has been considerable fluctuation in the sale of certain journals. The best established do not vary much; others exhibit a certain end rapid decline: one, the Observer, nearly doubled in 11120. The most violent of the Opposition Press, stand higher in 11119 than in 11120; and, in general, it appears, that the papers less de- cidedly of a party character, have increased ; while those of a con- trary cast have diminished. We do not, however, pretend to be acquainted with all these; but the Champion, which, in 1817, consumed of stamps 64,000, in 1820, takes only 36,934. Cobbett's Register disappears from the list; Duckett's Dispatch drops from a duty of 31) 0/. to 21. 5s. ( ir/.; the Englishman decreases from 1119,525 to 173,800; the Examiner differs from 205,000 to 194,500; the independent Whig, from 50,405 to 4694 ; and Wooller's Ga- zette, from 101,415 in' 1819, to 77,850 in the following year. On the other hand, more neutral journals seem to have risen :— Bell's Dispatch,' in four years, from 73,350, to 122,000; Bell's Mes- senger, from 5/ 3, OilO to 607,650 ; the Observer, what we have al- ready noticed; and the minor papers in like ratios. All the periodicals above mentioned are produced on the Satur- day, Sunday, and Monday ; but there is another class of consider- able importance published in the Metropolis, which does not come under the designation of the daily press. There are at least five papers ( British Mercury, Christian Reporter, Philanthrophic Ga- zette, Military Gazette, and Moderator,) peculiar to Wednesday ; one, the Farmer's Journal, claims Monday; another, the Law Chronicle, belongs to Thursday; the Hue and Cry, or Police Ga- zette, is seen every third week; and the Literary Advertiser on the 10th of every month. On the evenings of Monday, Wednes- day, and Friday, the Evening Mail, London Packet, and London Chronicle; and on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, the Gene- ral Evening Post, Commercial Chronicle, English Chronicle, and St. James's Chronicle, which are all called " thrice- a- wcek pa- pers" are promulgated, and, though not much read in London, have most of them, we believe, a respectable country circulation. In town, the population wants its food of news daily ( almost hour- ly) ; ill the provinces many- are contented to he infracted on al- ternate days. Then there is the Courier de Londres every Tues- day and Friday ; and, though last, not least of this class, tile Lon- don Gazette, by authority, every Tuesday and Saturday. Taking the average of the sale of these papers at 1,000, their thirty- four impressions will amount to 34,000 weekly, to be added to the first order, or about l 1/ 4[ million in the course of the year. The third and best known class of London Newspapers, con- sists of the o. aily Morning and Evening publications: the former comprehending eight— tile British Press, Morning Advertiser, Morning Chronicle, Morning Herald, Morning Post, New Times, Public Ledger, and Times. The latter, seven— namely the Cou- rier, Globe, Star, Sun, Statesman, Traveller, and True Briton. The eight morning papers have a daily sale ( we speak very near ( the mark) of from 18,000 to 20,000 ; tile seven evening papers amount probably to from 12,000 to 14,000. We will take the two united at a li'. tle more than 30,000 per diem, which makes an ad- dition to the preceding weekly sale of newspapers of 200,000, and to the yearly total of about ten millions an d a half. The consumption of newspapers published in London alone, therefore, will oil these data amount annually to— Of Saturday, and Sunday, ( with Monday editions) papers 3,250,000 Ot other weekly, twice and thrice a week papers. ... 1,750,000 And of daily papers 16,500,000 wetting for printing, and submitting them to the press, in pages or forms ( i. e. two pages together), it would prolong this article too much to detail: we shall only mention that, for expedition sake, it is often necessary to print the latest made- up paps two or three times over 1 so that, though only one sheet is produced, it is frequently set up, in feu: similes, twice or thrice. To conclude the whole, the publishing of a large impression is, in itself, remark- able. The speed with which reams of moist paper are counted, and disposed of in quires, dozens, and single papers, to the various news- men— the clamour of their boys, and the impatience of the devils, constitute a spectacle of no common kind. The Evening Papers, which take their reports from those of the Morning, are, of course, spared a very considerable expense. Some of the leading morning journals disburse, for literary assistance and printing, above 200/. weekly ; none of the Evening, we pre- sume, expend one- half of that amount, however liberal they are ill providing for the public entertainment and information. In the Weekly prints, the system is nearly the same; only they proceed more leisurely, in consequence of their work being spread over six days. Few of them employ reporters, or look much after original matter; except, perhaps, that some of the leading Sun- day newspapers obtain an account from the law courts on Satur- day, and of any late news on that day. Their expenses are thus comparatively inconsiderable, and their emoluments great. It is not easy to speak with certainty, nor would it be right in us to do so, of the profits of any particular journals; we shall therefore, conclude by stating the common rumour, that, at least, one morn- ing paper is worth from fifteen to eighteen ; two from eiijht to ten ; one evening, more than ten; and one, or perhaps two weekly, from three to live thousand pounds per annum. MONMOUTHSHIRE SESSIONS. At the Quarter Sessions liolden for the county of Monmouth, at Usk, on the 14th inst. there was very little of that sort of business arising out of disputes respecting settlements and other parochial litigation which usually occupy by far the greatest share of the time and attention of the county ; but we are sorry to add the amount of crime, from the testimony of the calendar of criminal prisoners in the Bridewell and House of Correction, had fearfully increased, notwithstanding the attention and additional expendi- ture of late devoted in this county to the increase and improve- ment of its prison- establishments. But the subject which at these Sessions surpassed all others in interest, and that on which the at- tention of the whole county was fixed, was relating to the County Stock and Expenditure at Monmouth Gaol. After sentence had been pronounced on the prisoners, Mr. Moggridge rose, and said he should preface the motion he then had to make with but a few words, its obvious utility being such as, if it did not ensure unanimity, would at least silence op- position. Its object, he said, was to discover and prevent frauds in the collection of the county rates before they got into the hands of the Treasurer. He then read and handed to the Chairman ( Mr. Serjeant Bosanquet,) the following motion, viz : " That the Clerk of the Peace be directed to apply to the Overseers of the Poor of the different parishes in the county to make a return to him, before the 1st of March next, of all monies entered into the parish- books as paid to the Chief Constable or other persons under the denomination of County Stock, since the 1st of January, 1817-" Mr. Blakemore said he should object to the motion, as throw- ing a slur on the county, and exciting suspicion of personal mis- conduct, unless the Worthy Magistrate would refer to some indi- vidual facts, as rendering such a measure necessary, lie admit- ted, however, he had himself been told various abuses of the kiud the motion was intended to remedy were in existence. Mr. Moggridge, in reply, said, that the personality which Mr. Blakemore at once required and condemned, was what he was de- termined to avoid. He did not mean, nor would he make any charge of individual criminality till the same had been publicly proved. There was a pretty general suspicion excited on this subject that abuses did. exist; it was very clear, from the manner in which the business was transacted, that such might exist; there was at present no sufficient, perhaps he might say, no check in a certain quarter. His object at present, Mr. M. said, was to as- certain whether the suspicions, of which he partook, were with or without foundation; most happy should he be to have njlisfactory proof afforded him that they were groundless ; but he could not reconcile it to his sense of public duty to let reputed abuses go un- " quired into, nor unremedied, if unfortunately such should exist. Lord Granville Somerset said he should not object to the mea- sure, and Mr. Blakemore withdrawing his, Mr. Moggridge's mo- tion, being seconded by James Thomas, Esq. was carried without division. Mr. Moggtidgc then begged to inquire of the Learned Chair- man if the orders of the last Court ( or the production of papers, books, and accounts, relative to the late expenditure of the county- gaol, had been complied with; and if so, that they be now pro- duced and read. Which having been done accordingly, Mr. M. again rose, and said, that whatever doubt had ex- isted before on the subject must now be removed, particularly when he should refer to other public documents then in Court, and to the Act of 24 Geo. III. r. 54, which curiously enough was relied on for a justification of the misapplication of the county money, which lie contended had taken place. Mr. M. Iheii went into a narrative of the objectionable circumstances which he said he had opposed from the beginning, and showed how the Court had been prevailed upon to come to a decision in opposition to his opinion, stating expressly, that, in making this detail, though he must necessarily bring forward facts that might appear to have reference to individuals, and which call for individual explana- Grand yearly total 15,500,000 • or about - 300,000 every week, or about 50,000 every day ! Whan wo look at the great price of this article, which, from its demand, may well be reckoned among the necessaries of life, at the revenue it produces, without the trouble even of collection, at the multitude of persons to whom it affords employment, at the quan- tity it uses of manufactures and mechanism, paper, type, presses, • See. ISLC. at its various ramifications as a source of industry and property in rents, insurances, buildings, newsvenders, postages, conveyances, and above all, at its commercial, scientific, social, political, and moral influence, it will stand forward to the con- templation as one of the most extraordinary objects even of this extraordinary age. But what we have yet considered is only a part of the whoiie; there are still an infinitely greater number of provincial newspa- pers to be added to the list. There is hardly a town of any size m the kingdom which has not its journal. Glancing at . the news- man's list, ( published by Newton, of Warwick- square) we observe that Bristol has five, Bath four, Birmingham four, Brighton three, Cambridge two, Canterbury three, Carlisle two, Chelmsford two, Chester three, Coventry two, Durham two, Exeter four, Glouces- ter two, Hull three, Ipswich two, Leeds three, Liverpool six, Leicester two, Manchester seven, Maidstone two, Newcastle three, Norwich two, Nottingham two, Oxford two, Preston two, Ply- mouth three, Sherborne two, Stamford two, Whitehaven two, Worcester two, and York three. And this list ( we have not mi- nuted places where papers arc published only once a week) by no means includes all the country journals published. In England and Wales, however, it extends its enumeration to one hundred and thirty three, all of which are weekly, except the two belonging to Canterbury, which appear twice a week. The Isle of Man, Jersey, and Guernsey, produce each two week- ly journals. Scotland lias 31 in the list, to which Aberdeen contributes two, Air two, Dumfries two, Dundee two, Edinburgh nine, Glasgow four, Inverness two, Kelso two, and Montrose two. Of these, three Edinburgh's are published thrice a week, and three twice ; two Glasgow's thrice a week, and one twice; Greenock twice a week, and one of the Kelso's twice a week ; raising the whole to forty- seven within that period. Ireland is enumerated up to fifty- six, whereof Belfast has four, Cork four, Clonmcll two, Dublin sixteen, Ennis two, Galway three, Kilkenny two, Limerick four, Tralee two, and Waterford two. Among these, four of the Dublin are daily, and there are others thrice and twice a week, to make the total weekly, one hun- dred and twenty- six publications The sum is— weekly. English Provincials 135' The British Isles 6 Scotland 47 Ireland 126 Total ! 314 And to the honour of these be it stated, that not one of them is published on the Sabbath day, which practice is confined to Lon- don alone. Many of the conntry newspapers have a very great Sale, so that we should not probably far exceed the truth if we averaged them at 2,000. The result would be above 520,000 weekiv, or 36 millions and a half annually, to be added to tile mass of the Metropolis, and augmenting the grand total to above fifty millions of sheets within the year," or a " weekly million dis- tributed over the country, and dispatched abroad ! We shall pass the Weekly, and just sketch a Morning News- paper ; the contents of which would make a three guinea volume, as books are now fashionably got up. In the first place, the advertisements are continually printing.. During the sitting of Parliament, each journal has from six to tee or more gentlemen of literarv acquirements, engaged in re- porting the debates. These succeed each other in rotation, in the gallery of the House of Commons, or space for strangers ill tile Upper House; and remain, as may be requisite, half an hour, an hour, or two hours respectively, to take notes of what passes ; as one retires, another occupies ( lis- place; and the succession lasts till the business is done. Ill the same way, the matter is delivered to the printers: the first reporter goes to his office and writes out his part of the debate, while the second is carrying on the system of note- taking; and so the whole proceeds through three, four, five, six, seven, or ten individuals. This division of labour ren- ders tliat practicable which we daily see, and which would other- wise be thought impossible. The same principle is seen in the printing- office, or chapel as it is called. The principal printer re- ceives the debates written on slips of paper, ami distributes them to his ten or fourteen compositors, to be put ill type. When fi- nished, the matter is put regularly together, and impressions are taken us the work goes on, which are submitted to . mother officer, called tbe Reader, for correction. A lad reads the MS to this per- son, while he cons the proof, and jots m tbe margin the needful alterations. Again handed to the compositors, these alterations are made 111 the type; arid the proof is read twice more before it is filially made up into columns fur the editor, and for putting into the shape in which it is published. The news, and politics, and all other branches of the paper, undergo a similar process; and it is altogether curious to see the busy and active scene in which perhaps, ten able writers, u great number of clever printers, superintending readers, correctors, printers, and editors, are all fo- operating to the same end— the publication on the morning of the morrow, of, that well- filled sheet, of which the very com- mencement was witnessed some twelve hours before. The cir- cumstances of getting the sheets stamped at the Stamp- office, " The » e calculations are made Oil the face of the sheet laid before the House of Commons, but it must 1 » observed, that it is extremely- incorrect.* . ' tion, he meant not to impute improper motives to any Magistrate, nor in fact to refer at all to the motives of any person, though he confessed, as related to the Magistrate principally concerned ( Mr. Price, as we understood him to mean,) the course adopted ill his defence, aird the violence with which another Magistrate had been induced to come forward in his defence, had excited in his mind a feeling on the subject which had naturally led to inquiries into local circumstances; frmn the result of which it appeared to liiin that the workmen usually employed about the county gaol had been discharged on this occasion, and another introduced by Mr. Price to execute the whole work without previous conditions, con- tract, or competition. Mr. Moggridge, after explaining at large how casually and accidentally he had become acquainted with the subject, and how unnecessary he considered to be that part of the expenditure which had been devoted to making additions to the county gaol, went on to state that in his apprehension the legality of tile expenditure for this purpose of the county money could not be maintained under an Act of Parliament which authorised no expenditure whatever of such additions, but for REPAIRS only, without a previous presentation by the Grand Jury, which it was notorious, and had been acknowledged by all parties, had hot in this case taken place. He contended, therefore, the order for the payment of the last 200/. to Mr. Burton, on tile motion of Mr. Price, must be rescinded, and so much at least as that sum added to what Mr. Burton had been before paid 011 the same account must be refuuded to the county. Mr. Moggridgc also said there could be now no difference of opinion on the' following facts which had been proved in Court, from the testimony of the Keeper of the prison, atul by reference to his journal, the Visiting Magistrate's book brought from the county gaol, Mr. Burton's accounts, and other documents produced in Court; and which were, that, 011 or about the 27th of June, 1820, certain new buildings, termed day- wards or rooms, had been begun to be built at the gaol of Mon- mouth ; that the same were ill the course of building from the said 27th of June until tbe beginning of Juno following, and that during that time it appears from his own signature in the Magis- trate's visiting- book now produced in Court, and the entries of which have been read by the Chairman, Mr. Blakemore visited the gaol three different times, and reported on the state thereof. " It will, Sir," added Mr. Moggridge emphatically, " be in your recollection, and in that of every Magistrate oil the Bench who was present at the last Sessions, that 011 luy then stating that ad- ditions had been made to the county gaol under the orders of Mr. Price, Mr. Biakemorc interrupted me, not in the most decorous manner, asserting that there had been no addition to the county gaol since the 5th of October, 1819; it will also be remembered, I doubt not, that on my twice cautioning that gentleman on the point, he twiceagain repeated this declaration, which I then took down, read to him, received his assent to its correctness, and now repeat from the record then made." Mr. Moggridge then moved two resolutions in conformity with, these statements, and concluded by expressing bis belief that tharc could be no diversity of opi- nion therecr,. The Chairman having put thequestion on one of the resolutions, Mr. Blakemore moved that a written statement, signed by ltd. Lewis and Joseph Price, Esqrs. be then read, which being done, Mr. Price proceeded to read from a paper in his hand, which con- tained his reasons for acting as he had done, stating in justifica- tion that he was authorised to do so by various entries in the Ma- gistrates' books, and sanctioned by the opinion expressed by the Grand Jury on two visits to. tile gaol and by sundry Magistrates; but in answer to a question put to him by the Chairman, at the request of Mr. Moggridge, he admitted there was no record what- ever of these opinions of the Juries or Magistrates, and that the entry justifying his making the objectionable buildings was that of the 26th of May, 1820, in the Visiting Magistrate's book. Mr. Price then alluded to the charge brought forward by Mr. Moggridge, and an anonymous one, equally libellous and un- founded, as we understood him to say, in the Bristol Mercury. Mr. Price here, on an explanation of the nature of the calumny being required by Mr. Moggridge, replied, that what he meant was the charge of having been the cause of the dismissal of the workmen heretofore employed by the county, and substituting a Mr. Burton in their stead, the truth of which he denied. Mr. Moggridge said he had received the information from sevc. ral persons of high respectability, and believed it from their repre- sentation ; but, if it were unfounded, he had not the least objec- tion to retract that in which he had been misled. Mr. Price fully admitted the fact of there having been two new day- rooms, a wash- house, and a solitary cell, built since the 5th of October, 1819, but seemed to wish to have it understood these were no additions. Mr. Blakemore entered into a long defence of his friend Mr. Price, and spoke of the hardship of his being called to account for his public services, rendered, he said, in consequence of authority derived from his Brother Magistrates; but the Worthy Magis- trate specified more particularly the entry of the 26th of May, so relied upon by Mr. Price himself. He contended that the expen- diture was justified by the 26th Geo. III. because the whole mo- ney was not advanced in one year, part being paid ill 1820, and part in 1821. He also contended that the two new day- rooms, the wash- house, and the new solitary cell, all of which lie admit- ted had been built since the 5th of April, 1819, were no additions to the county gaol, for that the gaol would not contain a single prisoner more now than it would before ; and that he did not say at the last Sessions that there had been no additions to the county gaol, but that there had been 110 enlargement. Mr. B. then quoted a passage from Mr. Moggridge's work 011 Prison Disci- pline, expressive of the importance Mr. M. attached to the moral instruction, classification, and the other modern improvements of prison discipline; and yet, this same gentleman, after having ex- posed the defects of the county prison, objected to. those additions which were necessary to carry his own plans into execution. Mr. B. again strenuously contended, that the two new day- rooms, the new wash- house, and the new solitary cell, were no enlargement of. the gaol; and concluded by hoping that/ hc Bench would not suffer its former decision to br reversed. Mr. Serjeant Bosanquet then rose, and, in a speech replete with good sense and legal information, said, that at first he had no oubt of the legality of the order, though lie. had been no party to the making it; but, he said, the question so properly brought for- ward by the Worthy Magistrate, Mr. M. had induced him to take a more enlarged view of the subject than he had before done, and he confessed that he did now see much reason to doubt at least the legality of the order, Yet he foresaw so much inconvenience and injustice in rescinding it, that he should find some difficulty in voting for the motion. He hoped, however, the Worthy Magis- trate would not press it to a division. He rejoiced, he said, that the question had been brought forward, for he was convinced all must be impressed with the necessity of in future adhering to the precise terms of the Acts of Parliament in the appropriation of the county money; and he believed it would do much good. The Learned Chairman said, 110 one could doubt that the motives which influenced the Mover in the whole business were of a public na- ture, most honourable to himself, and he had no doubt the result would be beneficial to the county. Lord Granville Somerset concurred with the Learned Chairman in imputing none but honourable motives to the Worthy Magis- trate who opposed the grant, and now desired it should be re- scinded ; ana lie was particularly glad to hear that gentleman state, that any facts which he brought forward were so brought forward as a necessary part of the case, and not as meaning to in- culpate any individual, or to impute improper motives. He thought with the Chairman, that a more particular attention would in future be directed to tbe expenditure of the co » n%' money, and that good would result from the legality of the order having been questioned, though 011 the legality, or otherwise, he did not mean to pronounce any opinion ; but he hoped the motion would be withdrawn, that the Bench might not be driven to stultify itself, and that the very awkward predicament in which it and other par- ties would be placed might be avoided. Mr. Moggridge, at a late hour, and after the Hall had been lighted up, rose to reply, which, he said, was rendered quite indis- pensable on his part, though he should be enabled to curtail what lie deemed it necessary to'say, particularly in conscquencs of what had fallen from the Learned Chairman and the Noble 1.01 d on his right. Mr. M. said, the order for the repairs of the county gaol Oil the 5th October, 1819, had been quoted to show that what had since been done there was quite necessary and in conformity there- to ; but all the rest of the resolutions and proceedings of that day on which there had been a meeting of tbe Magistrates, convened for the special purpose of taking into consideration the state of the prison- establishments of the county, had been kept back ; and it never ought to be forgotten, that by the decision of that day it had been solemnly determined, instead of enlarging the County Gaol at Monmouth, a new House of Correction Bhould be built at Usk, which had been done at a large expence to the county: this fact also, Mr. M. said, Mr. Blakemore had not very candidly or fairly concealed, when he charged Mr. Moggridge with incon- sistency, in first pointing out defects, and then objecting to the re- medy; for said Mr. M. the very reverse of this has happened. He had, he said, first drawn the attention of the Magistrates to the inadequacy of their then prison- establishment, and in conse- quence lie had had the pleasure of finding them as anxious as him- self to provide remedies ; and, as far as his humble abilities went, he had exerted himself in concurrence with them to enlarge the prison- establishment of the county, and the new prison at Usk had been built at a considerable expence to the county, doubling die accommodation afforded to the prisoners. Mr. Moggridge said, that no man felt more deeply than himself the renponsibility of Magistrates, incurred in the management of prisoners and prisons. He had long felt it his duty, and lie believed the Bench felt it to be theirs, to provide such accommodation for the unfortunate in- mates of gaols as befitted their deplorable case to receive, and jus- tice and humanity to bestow; and that classification and moral instruction were indispensable to that duty being discharged ; but how he could be justly charged with inconsistency, under the cir- cumstances detailed, he left the Worthy Magistrate to explain, whose speech implied such a charge. Mr. M. said, that the ques- tion of the legality of the order lie objected to seemed to him not to have been fully understood. He said the assertion that the mo- ney had not been advanced in one year, appeared to him to be a mere nullity, for tbe fact was, that the whole had been paid within one twelve- months, ( hough part of those months were in the year 1820, and part in 1821. But Mr. M. said he did not rely altoge- ther or even chiefly upon this; he contended that the authority to expend any money, without previous presentment by a Grand Jury, was limited by the Act of 24th George III. to the repairs SOLE 1. Y; and it was to the expenditure of by far the greatest por- tion of the money in additions that he objected, namely, in build- ing two new day- wards, a new wash- house, and a new solitary cell. He also declared, that under this Act he understood it to be illegal to expend any part of the County Stock Money, with- out advertising for tenders and letting by contract to such persons as could do the business cheapest and best, without reference to party bias or individual preferences, neither of which had been at- tended to in the present instance. These, Mr. M. contended, were fatal objections to the legality of the vote. The justification, too, in the present case, was like all the rest of the proceeding. Mr. Price himself, and Mr. Blakemore, both relied upon the or- der of the 26th May, whereon to acquit Mr. Price for ordering the building of two new wards, a wash- house, and a solitary cell; but it would be seen, by reference to the entry of that order, that the order was for proceeding forthwith with the REPAIRS of the county gaol; not a word was said in it, of any additions, enlarge- ment, or any thing of the sort, merely REPAIRS. But, Sir, said Mr. Moggridge, Mr. Price insinuates that these new buildings are no enlargement, and Mri Blakemore positively contends that these things are 110 enlargement; and both, in order to establish this curious statement in the way of justification, assert that which must be most consolatory indeed to the payers of County Stock, that, notwithstanding the money which has been expended in building two new day- wards, one wash- house, and one solitary cell, the gaol is not capable of containing one prisoner more now than it was before these buildings were crectcd ; and that tlie dif- ference in our statements is a difference of technicality. But, Sir, the time which the debate has taken renders it unnecessary for me to say much more on this subject. I meant to have gone most thoroughly into and through the subject; but I refrain, because, Sir, my objects will, I sec, be attained without, and attained also without pressing my motion to a division. I am well aware of the dilemma in which the Bench— the Magistrates who were particu- larly concerned, the Treasurer of the County, and the builder who has been employed by . Mr. Price— would be placed, were my mo- tion to be carried. 1 would be the last person ill the world to wish to place the Magistracy of the county in such awkward circum- stances. I have too great a regard for my brother Magistrates personally, and for their dignity collectively, to do any thing like this, unless the interests of the county itself would otherwise be compromised. My object will be attained by the admission of the vote being dubious ( to use the softest term,) by a careful adhe- rence in future to the letter of the law, and by tlie adoption, as a matter of course and indispensable rule, that no county money be expended but under contract by such person, be he who he may, . as wL! execute the work at the least charge and to the greatest ad- The average amount of all promissory not j- s an- J bills of the Bank of Ireland, which have been in circulation during the quarter ending the 5th day of January, 1822, is 5,301,177/. 14s. 1< 1. Irish currency. In the year 1815 the taxation of the British Empire amounted to about 70 millions sterling per annum; in the year 1821 it amounted to about 54- millions. The taxation, therefore, for 1831, in comparison with the year 1815, is reduced in the pro- portion of about one fourth. The average price of wheat for the year 1815 was 70.?. 6d. per quarter; but for tbe year 1821 it wastiSs. Sd. per quarter. The pricc of wheat, therefore, for 1821, in comparison with the year 1815, is reduced in the proportion of about one- eighth, or 12^ per cent. These two rather extraordinary facte prove that the present distress among the farmers, arising from the low price of the produce of the soil, is not in consequence of the present excessive taxation, inasmuch as we have shown that the taxation for 1815 was one fourth higher than it is at present, and yet wheat then was 12^ per cent, higher in price than it is now. Query— Does the cause for the present low price of provisions of all descriptions arise from the wonderful improvements which have been made in the capabilities of production for this last thirty years, not only in England, but also in Ireland, and from the pro- digious quantity of waste land which has been incloscd in that space of time ? It would give us great pleasure if some of our Agricultural Correspondents would turn their attention to this subject, and favour us with their thoughts upon it. A society, called the " British Union Society," is now being formed at Doncaster, by n number of religious fa- milies, for the purpose of establishing an agricultural co- lony in the territory of Illinois, in the United States. A general fund is to be raised by subscription for the purchase of land, stock, & c. and a common store is to be kept, from which the colonists will be supplied with goods at whole- sale prices. Religious teachers will be appointed, and the children will be taught useful learning. An ingenious nautical mechanic has invented and com- pleted the model of an 80- gun ship of war, of which the keel, floor- timbers, lower futtocks, and bottom planks, are made of copper! A patent, it is said, is taking out for this curious new mode of ship- building, which it is added is well thought of by some well- qualifled naval men. Lord John Russell has addressed a second letter to the Yeomanry and Farmers of Huntingdonshire, in which he observes, " There are persons who advise a large reduc- tion of intercut on the whole debt. But this is a measure to be resorted to in a case of extreme necessity. Tlie na- tion thereby declares itself bankrupt. Consider what it is for a country, whose greatness is mainly founded upon commerce, to proclaim itself insolvent. Reflect upon the national dishonour; the extensive ruin; the embarrassment of' all dealings between man and man; the difficulty of re- storing credit; the danger to thepeace of society that a bank- ruptcy implies ; and I think that you will then agree with me, that every other resource ought to be tried." His Lordship afterwards says, " The only safe remedies that are at hand seem to consist in a retrenchment of the pub- he expences, the abolition of the sinking fund, and the repeal of some of the most obnoxious taxes." The taxes he specifics are tc the taxes on salt, candles, leather, Boap, and part of the malt- tax, which press upon ( lie farmer and agricultural labourer." Ilis Lordship treats all ap- plications for an alteration in the Corn Bill as absurd. The editor of the Farmers' Journal makes some strong animadversions on the present mode of returning the ave- rage priees of Corn. " Adverting to the Gazette averages of wheat ( says he), we find that about twenty towns, chiefly in Norfolk, the Isle of Ely, and Lincolnshire, fornj an aggregate average considerably under 40s. per quarter, while about ten towns on the western side of the kingdom form an aggregate average of about 60s. per qr. As, for instance, Thetford ( Norfolk) returns 18 qrs. at 37/. just 30s. per qr.; Frome ( Somerset) returns 18 qrs. at 6 U. which is about 70s.; Watton ( Norfolk) returns 33 qrs. at ml. or 32s. Sd.; Tavistock ( Devon) returns 34 qrs. at 103/. or more than 60s.; Ulverstone, a large manufactur- ing town in Lancashire, returns only 31 qrs. and the mo- ney is 951. ( more than 60s. per qr.) as if such a quantity bore any proportion to the supply of such a population, or that the true average of that market were anything like such a price ! Froine is also a populous and manufacturing town. Thus the system of discretionary averages is to- tally opposite to the public interests : the manufacturers at Ulverstone and Frome buy their bread by the above scales, and the people are every where imposed upon by this fallacious system." MELANCHOLY ACCIDENT.— On Thursday afternoon aa Mrs. Goodbehere, wife of J. Goodbehere, Esq." of Hackney, was stirring the fire, a large shawl she had over her shoulders, caught fire, and communicating to her other appar- 1 ( which was of light texture) she was to dreadfully burnt, that she died on Friday morning. EXECUTION.— This morning, Henry Thompson, for forging checks on Jones, Loyd, and Company, bankers, and ltd. Jago, for a burglary in Mr. Ord's house, Berkeley- square, under- went their awful sentence. They seemed perfectly resigned to their fate, and acknowledged its justice. Their sufferings, when the drop fell, were very brief. During the whole period since the order for execution, they acknowledged they deserved their punish- ment Thompson was 38 yeaas of age, and had formerly been in a respectable mercantile situation, but for some time past has been known as getting his living in an equivocal manner, having been before in Newgate, and also tried at the Clerkenwell Sessions. of the principal manufacturers in this town, last week advanced tlie price of w cav- ing 3d. and 6d. per cut or piece ; and we feel pleasure in stating, that the trade is, at present,- in an improving condition, and that all hands are in full employ. We trust the present revival iscnly a prelude of that desirable period, when the sun of prosperity shau again shine upon our land, and when all murmuring and wretch- edness will happily be banished from our streets.— Blackbum Mail.

His Lordship shot brace before sunset— The Duke of Rutland, in one day, in October, 1815, when shooting in Cheveley Park, killed, in the course of five hours, 41 partridges, 19 pheasants, 43 hares, and 2* 2 rabbits. FROME.— This town was again thrown into & state of confusion on Friday, by the assemblage of a very considerable body of weavers from the neighbourhood, who proceeded to the houses of two or three of the town weavers that took work at » h-> reduced prices ,- and although several of the respectable inhabi- tants interfered, they succeeded in taking tint iiicces off the . looiii- i. The Messrs. Sheppard, and other respectable clothiers, were" on tiw spot; and, to prevent further confusion, with their usual : liben>- lity agreed to give the full price for what work w » » than in t! x> hands of the weavers, leaving it open to future arrangement. PRESERVATIVE AGAINST SCARLET FEVER.— It is an- nounced in the Journal de Medicine Pratique of Berlin, that th. 1 Belladonna i* a preservative against this fever. The fact was first discovered at Leipsig, and it has lately been confirmed by severe experiments. IMPORTANT DECISION.— X decision of considerable importance to coach- mastcra, and indeed to tbe public at large, it the principal upon which it is grounded proves to be correct in larc. took place at Guildhall on Saturday, upon th* healing, o£ a sum- mons obtained by Baskerville, the porter belonging to tho Golden- cross Inn, Charing cross, ( under the statute 19th Geo. Ill, c- 58) against a respaetable gentleman of the uan> o of Wilson, re- niuing in Milk- street, for refusing payment for the carriage ar. ti porterage of a basket brought by the Fakenham. coach to London. The charges, both of which wore disputed 011 behalf of the defen- dant, were, for the carriage 3j. 2d. and for porterage lOrf. The question as to the latter charge was soon disposed of. Thi ques- tion as to the charge for carriage, however, took much longer tima to determine. The defendant's objection was, that the basket, with, its contents, which were admitted to be game,' weighed only 111b. 6oz. and ought 10 have been charged in the customary manner, viz. by weight at 2 [ Theremainder of this sentence we hold to be wholly unfit for publication.] On this, Sheriff Smyth stood up, and loudly called the Alderman to order, which was not attended to by the Alderman, and which was also disregarded by some of his party. Sheriff' Smyth then stood oil his chair, declaring most emphatically he would stand there for a month until the Alder- man was put down. It was then that the Sheriff Whelan rose, joining his brother Sheriff in the cry of ' Order!' which was at length complied with. No PAV, NO PLAY.— The manager of the Olympic Theatre was on Saturday night obliged to dismiss the audience, all the company having refused to perform, in consequence of the non- payment of their salaries, which the manager could not dis- cbarge, from want of patronage. BOXING CHALLENGES.—" Shelton's compliments to Mr. Crawley, a « d as he has been attempting to act the part of Mr. Neat on the stage, T. Slielton, will, if he thinks proper, shew him some little play in the prize ring, after the manner of Gas, for 100/. a- side."— Harry Sutton has informed the sporting world, that he is open to any man in the kingdom for 100/.

Crawley trusts ( as Mr. Shelton remarks) ( hat he shall be able to accommodate him in as Neat a manner as Mr, Shelton can possibly vis!-' 1 A DISTRESSED FATHER.— On Saturday, Henry New- berry, a lad of 13 years, and Edw. Chidley, aged 19, were fully committed for trial, from Bow- street, charged with Bsealing a sil- ver tea- pet from tlie house of R. H. Cocks, Esq. Grosvcnor- place. There was nothing extraordinary in this case— the younger lad was observed to go down into the area of the house whilst his com- panion kept watch, and they were caught endeavouring to conceal the tea- pot under some rubbish 111 the Five Fields; but it was made peculiarly interesting by the unsophisticated distress ofNew- berry's father. The poor old man, who, it seems, has been a soldier, and Is now a journeyman paviour, refused at first to believe that his son had committed the crime imputed to him ; and was very clamor- ous against the witnesses; but as their evidence proceeded, he him- self appeared to become gradually convinced. He listened with intense anxiety to the various details; but when they were finished, he fixed his eyes in silence, for a second or two, upon his son, arid turning to the Magistrate, with his eyes swimming in tears, he exclaimed—" I have carriad him many a score miles 011 my knap- sack, your honour !" There was something so extremely pathetic in the tone with which this fond reminiscence was uttered by the old soldier, that every person present, even to the very gaoler himself, was affected by it. " I have carried him many a score miles on my knapsack, your honour," repeated the poor fellow, whilst he brushed away the tears from his check with his rough unwashed hand, and then continued—" but it's all over now!— He has done— and— so have I!" The Magistrate asked him something of his story. He said he had formerly driven a stage- coach, in the north of Ireland, and that he had a small share in the proprietorship of the coach. A- bout that time he married a young woman with a little property, but he failed in business, and, after enduring many troubles, he enlisted as a soldier in the 18th, or Royal Irish Regiment- of Foot, and went on service with his wife and four children. Henry ( the prisoner) was his second son, and his " darling pride." At the end of nine years he was discharged, in this country, without a pension, or a friend in the world; and, coming to London, lie, with some trouble, got- employed as a paviour by the gentlemen who manage the streets at Mary- la- bonne."—" Two years ago, your honour," he continued,' u my poor wife was wearied out with the world, and she deceased from me, and I was left alone with the children; and every night I came home I washed their faces, and put them to bed, and washed their little bits o'things, and hanged them o' the line to dry myself— for I'd no money, your honour, and so I could not have an housekeeper to do for them, you know. Well, your honour, I was as happy as I well could be, considering my wife was deceased from me; but some bad people came to live at the back of us, and they were always striving to get Henry amongst them, and I was terribly afraid something bad would come of it, as it was but poorly I could do for ' em ; and so I made up my mind to take all my children to Ireland. If he had only held up another week, your honour, we should have gone, and he would have been saved. But now 1"— Here the poor man looked at bis boy again, and wept; and when the Magistrate tried to console him by observing that his son would sail for Botany Bay, and probably do well there, he replied, some- what impatiently—" Aye, it's fine talking, your Worship; I pray to the great God he may never sail any where 1 unless he sails with me to Ireland!" and then, after a moment's thought, he asked, in the humblest tone imaginable, " Does'nt your Honour think a little bit of a petition might help him ?". Tbe Magistrate replied, it possibly might, and added, " If you attend his trial at the Old Bailey, and plead for him at eloquently in word and action as you have done here I think it would help him still more." " Aye, but then you won't be there, I suppose, will you ?" asked the poor fellow, with that familiarity which is in some degree sanctioned by extreme distress; and when his worship replied that he certainly should not be present, he impatiently rejoined, " Then — what's the use of it ? There will be nobody there who knows me, and what stranger will listen to a poor old broken- hearted fellow, who can't speak for crying ?" The prisoners were now removed from the bar to be conducted to prison, and his son, who had wept incessantly all the time, called to him, " Father, father I" repeatedly, as though he wished him to follow ; but the old man stood rivetted, as it were, to the spot on which he stood, with his eyes fixed on tbe lad ; and when the door closed upon him, he put on his hat, as if unconscious where he was; and, crushing it down over his eyes, he began wandering round thc# room in a state of stupor. The officers in waiting re- minded him that he should not wear his hat in tlie presence of the Magistrate, and he instantly 5- emoVed it; but he still seemed lost to every thing around him, and, tho' one or two gentlemen present put money into his hands, he scarcely noticed it.
