LONDON, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3, 1822. TH E intelligence received from Paris since our last, rather tends to increase than to diminish the importance of the plot at Rochelle. The latest Paris Journal is of the 30th inst.; by which we learn that 2 j officers of va- rious ranks had been arrested; a fact of itself quite suf- ficient to demonstrate a conspiracy, at least among the military, of formidable extent. Some unpleasant intelligence has been re- vived from Brest, relative to the temper of the military in that . place, who were said to be in a state of insubordination. Nothing • was known but that the gates of Brest were closed by order, and ' that no individuals were suffered to enter or to go out. Existing • circumstances are indicative of an agitated state of the public mind. Jt is observed, that the debates in the Chambers become more ac- rimonious, and exciting. M. Manuel alleged, that the gend'ar- merie was under the guidance of very different regulations from those prescribed by law ; that the law requires that a civil magis- trate shall be present whenever the armed force is required to put down a seditious assemblage: whereas by a late ordinance that essential principle is completely laid aside. " The gend'armes are not obliged to obey their chiefs, when the orders which the latter give them are illegal." ( This produced a terrible explosion on the right). Gen. Donadieu said " we heed no longer be surprised if rebellions break out in every part of France, when rebellion is preached up day by day from this tribune." On M. Chauvelin getting up to speak, a furious contest arose ; some crying for the close of the discussion— others to hear him speak. The President could scarcely restore order. Such is the violence of party in the Chamber! Sir Benj. Bloomfield dined with the King on Thursday. The Active frigate, Capt. King, is being fitted up to take Mr. Canning to India: Mr. Ellis goes as Secretary to Mr. Canning. Government have, it seems, determined on uniting Up- per and Lower Canada, with a view, as it is given out. to save the expenditure incurred" by the present double administration. The Duke of Devonshire is said to be smitten with the charms of the Lady Elizabeth Conyngham. SHIPWRECK AND VALUABLE CARGO LOST— The schooner Linen Hall, burthen' 88 tons, built in 1817, sailed from this port ( Dublin,) for London, on the 24th inst. has been lost off the coast of Arklow, with'So, 009 guineas on board, shipped by the Batik of Ireland. We op. derstand,. those guineas were insured so low as Is. fid. per cent, to be delivered into the Bank of England ; the re- mainder of the cargo consisted principally of provisions. At Leicester Assizes, five prisoners received sentence of death; among whom was Wm. Barnett, for the murder of his wife, by administering poison to her. 1- 1 e was executed on Satur- day morning. The prisoner is supposed to have been induced to commit the horrid murder in consequence of an attachment to a sister of the deceased ; and it is worthy of remark that, notwith- standing he defeated the ends of justice for 12 months, by avoid- ing the eye of the police, he was, at a moment when he felt him- « elf perfectly secure, recognised by a little bay, who met him at Woodstock, in Oxfordshire.

To remedy this, it is proposed to be enacted, that all warrants of attorney, or a true copy, with attes- tation, the defeasance, indorsements, & e. shall, within days af- ter completion, be filed together with an affidavit of execution, in the Court in which judgment is intended to be entered up ; and any seizure made under a warrant not so filed to be deemed frau- dulent, and the assignees of bankrupts may recover the amount of the proceeds of such seizure. And as the object of this Bill may be defeated by any person giving a cognovit actionem instead of a warrant of attorney to confess judgment, it is further provided that this'instrument shall be filed in like manner : if given on any condition, rthe same also to be filed. The remaining clauses enact, that the officers of each Court keep a book, containing particulars of cach warrant of attorney and cognovit— allowing a fee for filing — copies to be given from the offices— satisfaction may be entered on warraMts'of attorney and cognovits. THE LATE DUEL IN SCOTLAND.— An erroneous account living appeared of the manner in which Mr. Stuart got possession of some papers proving that Sir Alexander Boswell was the author of the numerous attacks in the Glasgow, Sentinel against Mr. Stu- art, we arc desired to state that Mr. Stuart some time ago raised an action Of damages against Messrs. Borthwick and Alexander, the proprietors of the Sentinel. On one of the last days of the ses- sion, a gentleman from Hamilton ( thecouhty agentof Mr. Borth- wick) came to Mr. Stuart, and stated that Mr. Borthwick was ex- tremely desirous of having the action settled, and asked Mr. Stuart if he was inclined to do so. Mr. Stuart answered, that that would depend upon the communications made to him. The gentleman said that Mr. Borthwick Was in gaol in Glasgow for a debt, which he ( the agent) was going to discharge, and that Mr. Borthwick would produce all the papers in his possession. Mr. Stuart did not agree to any settlement of the action, But having been long extremely anxious to discover the authors of the attacks upon him, he went to Glasgow; and Mr. Borthwick, after being liberated from prison, brought a number of papers, and put them into the hantis of his Edinburgh agent, who was then at an hotel along with Mr. Stuart. Among these, the gentleman and Mr. Stuart, to their utter astonishment, found, in the hand- writing of Sir A. Boswell ( who had never been suspected), the papers which led to the fatal rencontre. Mr. Stuart neither paid, nor agreed to pay, any part of the debt for which Mr. Borthwick was imprisoned; he neither paid, nor agreed to pay Borthwick any money ; and be never was in the of- fice Of l\\ e Sentinel, from which he understood the papers were brought. W'C understand that Mr. Stuart has given notice, that he it ready to stand his trial. IRELAND.'— A man named O'Neil, who had given evi- dence against the White- boys, has been murdered by the insur- gents.— The criminal calendar of persons for trial at the Cork As- size amounts to the enormous number of 350 I At the Assize of the county of Limerick, several men were tried before Baron Penncfather, for murder, housebreaking, robbery of armc, and other crimes incidental to the growth of whiteboyism, when 11 were found guilty, and sentenced to death.. At Sligo two were condemned fo die, one for rape, the other for being a. White- boy. Thomas Wilson was executed at Philipstown for the mur- der of a policeman; and three others, for Whiteboyism, sentenced to death. Attack of the Waterford Mail- coach*— The day- coach, 011 the road from Limerick to Waterford, was attacked by a party of armed men, 011 Tuesday morning, within a few miles of Clonmel. The object, of the assailants was to carry off a young female, of the name of Ryan, who was travelling to the Assizes of Tipperary. Miss Wilson, Mr. Welsh, and Mr. Horn ( the vocal performers) . were ill the coach when it was stopped. The coach left Limerick " 1 Tuesday morning,; and was attacked in passing thro'a village - called Mount Katherine, about eight miles from Tipperary, by - seven ruffians, who fired at the coachman three times and compel- . led him to stop. They then called out " Put down the girl— put down the girl, alluding to the young female who was on the coach. • Several persons appeared within view ready to assist them. Tile man who attended, the coach and was called the ' Guard,' was un- armed. The banditti had ho trouble in getting possession of the girl, with whom they ran off very rapidly across the fields, and without offering any c.' her violence or even rudeness. Having secured their prey, they permitted the coach to proceed. Informa- : lion was immediately given to the Serjeant of the Tipperary Po- lice, who, with the men under his orders, commenced a pursuit, and. very soon succeeded in recovering and bringing the girl to Tip- perary in perfect safety. The party who took her off repeatedly fired on the Police, who of course returned the fire, but were un- able to take any of their assailants into custody; they ran witli most extraordinary speed through the country. It appears that the young woman possesses a fortune of 200/. and that all attempt was made some time ago to force her itito a marriage with a man who broke into her father's house for that, purpose, but from whom she escaped— He is at present in gaol for this offence ; his trial was to take . place on Wednesday at Clonmel. She was on the way to prosecutc him, . and his party conceived, of course, they could not better", promote his interest than by removing the principal witness against him. This appears to have been their sole object: they did'not make the least attempt to plunder the coach or passen- gers ; nqr; li4 they offer more violence than they seemed to think ne- cessary'for tilt purpose of obtaining possession of the young woman. DISCOVERY OF THE REMAINS OF JOHN OF GAUNT.— On Tuesday, as two men were digging for liquorice- root^ in the woods jabout a mile from Pontefract, called St. Thomas's Hill, about afoot below the surface of the ground, they came to a cof- fin of hewn stone, measuring inside 6 feet 4 inches, and contain- ing a human skeleton. Having apprized Mr. Mills, the lord of the manor, of the circumstance, that gentleman, with several hun- dreds of persons, examined the site, and found the remains to be , those of the highly renowned John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster. Dr. Hexby arriving first at the spot, took away the skull, which " was very perfect, ar. d contained a full set of sound teeth, perfectly white As s0on as the bones were1 exposed to the air, they crum- bled to pieces, '_ Brecknock and Abergavenny Canal Navigation.

THIS Office was established in Lombard- Street, Lon- A don, in the Year 1797, by a numerous and respectable Proprietary; and the BOARD OF DIRECTORS, with confidence, arising from the increased Prosperity and Permanency of the Establishment, as well as from the Experience of its Usefulness and Benefit to the Public, think. it due to those who may still be unacquainted with the Importance and Advantages of Life Insurance, briefly to suggest some of the leading and peculiar re- commendations to almost every Degree and Rank in Society, Life Insurance is of manifest, consequence to. all those who" hold Estatesfor Life, Situations and Offices, Civil, Ecclesiastical, or Professional; to Officers in the Army and Navy, & c.; as, by pay- ment of an Annual Premium, the Party insured is enabled to provide for Wife, Children, or others, whose future welfare he may wish in vain, by other means, to promote. It affords a permanent ultimate security to those who advance Money upon Annuities or otherwise. It renders Leases, determinable on one or more Lives, nearly equal in value to Freehold Estates, as an Insurance to the amount of the Fine, payable on the demise of a party nominated in such Leases, will produce the. Sum re- quired for renewal. It is a cheering refuge to parties engaged ill extensive and speculative undertakings: itaffords to Persons in Trade the certain means of indemnification against a bad or doubtful debt; in short, Life Insurance, establish, d in policy, sanctioned by Government, and confirmed by the test of expe- rience, is become, to almost every situation of human life, a measure equally important, useful, and beneficial.

THE contents of the French Papers, received this I morning, are of a most warlike character, and it can « be no longer doubted, we apprehend, that the pacific hopes which were no strongly entertained a week ago, are now, if not at an end, at least considerably diminished. The Duchess of Clarence is again in " that stale in which I. adies wish to be who love their Lords." It has decided by the Commissioners. of the Insolvent Court, that under the present Act a married woman cannot be discharged. Mr. J. Backhouse, of Liverpool, and not Mr. Ellis, is ap- pointed Secretary to the r. ew Governor General of India. Mr. Brown, Keeper of Newgate, has been appointed War- den of the Fleet prison, in the room of Mr. Nixon, deceased. We understand that many of those farmers who were sur. charged with an additional riding- horse, since the repeal of the Agricultural Horse Tax, have been stopped from appeal- ing; the Surveyor at present contenting himself with an af- fidavit from the parties, that thev had not used such horses. Mr. Curwen's note to the Board of Tares is supposed to have nut a stop to surcharging. It is lamentable to observe that the spirit of outrage is yet unsubdued in the south of Ireland. Neither judicial punishments, nor legislative restrictions, seem to have any other effect than to check for a moment the current of in- subordination, which still continues to roll on and to spread devastation in its course. The accounts received this morn- ing bring hideous details offresh murders, fresh barbarities, mia freari acts of violence and rapine. HOUSE OF LORDS- WEDNESDAY. Lord Erskine presented a Petition from certain Land Owners and Occupiers in Kent, praying relief. He commented on the Agricultural Report of the other House, which he characterised as'one that would yield no relief, but make things worse; and he called on tlie House to resist any Bill that might be brought in for opening the ports to foreign corn at J" J » - even with an additional duty imposed on it. ' I he Agricultural Report was brought up from the Commons, and the House adjourned to this day fortnight. HOUSE OF COMMONS— WEDNESDAY. AGRICULTURAL REPORT,— Mr. Benett, of Wilts, presented a Petition from rertairt Owners and Occupiers of iand, complaining of the existing distress. The Hon. Member, in presenting this Petition, entered into a review of the subject, aud contended, that the great source of distress was taxation. The distress was now so great that the landlords could not get their rent at all; on the contrary, in many cases, their tenants desired them to take back their land into their own hands. Our situation was indeed de- plorable ; but still he did not consider it so bad as many persons did. He trusted that some remedy, not merely a palliative, but one striking at the rOot of the evil, would be adopted. Mr. Ellice asked, what the Agricultural Committee had done in their six weeks sittings? All they had done was to consult how they might raise the price of grain so as to enable them to give a remunerating price to the grower. This was not the course which our circulating mfdi tin, or in what other cause it originated. To attempt to keen up the price in the way the Report recommended, was absurd. Corn, to give the farmer what was called a remune- rating price, must be raised 35 per cent, above what it was in other countries; and with • h a burden upon our manufacturer, he would ash.' how was it, possible that we could long remain a great com- mercial and manufacturing nation. For himself, he was clearly of opinion, that distress originated in the change of our currency. He knew of no remedy which could be. adopted, or any relief given during the present Session, cxcept what could be given by reduc- ing taxation to the lowest scale it could be reduced consistent with good faith to the public creditor. This ought to be done imme- diately after the holidays, instead of adopting the fallacious re- commendation of the Report to advance 1,000,0110/. or to attempt to increase the price. He contended that a revolution in the state of property had token place in this country within these few years, as great though not so violent as that which had taken plare in France. Bv the change in our currency, and consequent dis- tress, the land was reduced to 19,000,000, whilst the funded pro- nhad increased in value, anil the proportion exceeded 40 to 10. is state of things, nothing but a measure striking at the root of the evil, instead of the paltry one now recommended, could give relief to the country. Mr. F. Lewis, ( a Member of the Committee,) defended the Re- port, and endeavoured to clear it from the charge of material omis- sions, by contending that the subjects omitted, such, for example, as the alteration in the currency, dirt not come within tile scope of the enquiries presented to the Committee. Mr. Western also defended the Committee against the charge of wishing to raise the price of corn to the consumer; their object to PARENTS and GUARDIANS.

Broad- Street, Worcester. had been to prevent the country being inundated by foreign grain to the ruin of our own agriculturists. He feared, however, the measure proposed by i* vt Committee, would not have that ef- fect ; that, the Report would only rentier the farmers more discon- tented than they were at present, and that the tress was so ge- neral and so oppressive, that some remedy must be found. He had. since last he addressed the House, conversed with several of his constituents, who were decidedly of opinion that be was well founded in the assertion be made on that occasion ; namely, that two- thirds of the farmers of the county of Essex were insolvent. The depreciation of the currency had been so great prior to 1819, that he believed the country would be obliged to retrace its steps. All the distress of the country oi iginatcd in the measure of 1727, and was completed by tiie Act of 1819, which attempted to convert our de- preciated currency, of 22 years accumulation, into the standard of 17S7' It was true, that tite estates of the Landed Proprietors doubled in the course of that 22 years ; but eo did their incum- brances, their debts, their expences, and their taxes; and now comes the conclusion— all their expenccs - end outgoings were con- tinued at a double rate, but their income was at once to be reduced one- half. Under this state of things, the Landed Interest could not exist; but it was not only the Land Owners who thus suf- fered, but oil species of property was alike depressed ; and ulti mately, the labourer himself must suffer an equal reduction. Mr. Ricardo said, the lauded property had been plated at 40,000,000/. of which toe tenantry of the country paid a fourth in taxes, or 10,000,000/. Now, previous to 1819," nothing was said of the excess which the tenantry paid ; and suppetsing the extra- vagant depreciation which tlie lion. Member for Coventry ( Mr. t'. Uice) had contended for, had taken place, this would not impose more than 2,600,000/. on the tenantry ; and could that have occa- sioned all the distress which they now laboured under ? He did not believe the alteration of the currency imposed more than a burthsn of ten per cent, on tlie country ; this did not create the dis- tress. In his opinion the cause wav to be found in the very abun- dant harvests which we have recently had, and the abundant im- portation. He believed the country would » oen recover itself when these causes ceased to exist.— The present distress of the West In- dia Colonies plainly proved that, the distrws was not owing to the alteration in the currency, but to over- production. Mr. G. Bennett said, that in 1792 none heard but of the opu- lence of the country; what, was the cause of tbe difference ttien and now, when prices were nearly the same ? The cause was, that the taxes, which then were 19 millions, amounted now to Mi. After tiie demands of the Crown, the Church, and the; Poor- rates, there was nothing left for the owner of the soil. For the last 20, and, above oil, the last three years, there had been a complete re- volution of property. He knew persons who, from the fali in the price of land, and the alteration in the currency, had sunk from SitOO/. a year to 1000/. The. great relief to the country must arise from tying up the hands of the Tax- gatherer. The first creditor of the country was the plough ; and he was prepared to come to a composition with the public creditor. He was confident he should live to witness a similar arrangement proposed by the Noble Lord and die Right Hon. Gentleman. He could only look at the Report as that of a Committee of Land- owners to raise the price of corn. The Marquis of Londonderry thought that the discussion of to- night might, have better been postponed ; and that it might have been reserved to a time when some practical measure might have been proposed. The last speaker was to sound the country through the medium of its distress, whether it was prepared for a national bankruptcy, that must overwhelm all ranks in one common ruin. It was his usual practice to irr. pute every thin" to the Government of ( he country— the state of the harvests, and the elfect. of former wars. He ( the Marquis) would never believe that injustice would find favour in a British heart. If all the taxes were swept away, they would afford no relief U> agriculture. That was the only por- tion of the community that suffered distress. In cvety other branch trade and industry were in full vigour. With that, exception the country was in a state of prosperity, and on the subject of agricul- ture, other nations were in a worse state than ouis. No nation ever derived relief from a national bankruptcy, ar. d no prosperity could be permanent that was not founded in justice. The Petition was then read, and ordered to be printed. Mr. C. Wynn obtained leave to bring in a Bill transferring to the county of York the franchise of which Grampound has been de- prived, and thereby enabling that county to elect two additional Knights of the Shire. The extent of the county, and theimmense number of the freeholders, had suggested the expediency of dividing the county of York for the purpose of these elections. He stated the object'of the Bill to be, that there should be two Members for the West, and one for the East and North Riding respectively. The Bill was forthwith read a first, and ordered to be read a se- cond time on the 17th lust.; to which day tlie House adjourned for the Holidays. — « uw> i —-—— MAREKET CHRONICLE.

Gloucestershire, MONDAY'S POST. LONDON, SATURDAY, APRIL 6. PARIS Papers of Wednesday arc received. Turkey has absolutely rejected the Russian Ultimatum, and the Reis Effendi has communicated this determination to the Ministers of the mediating Courts, in a Note expressed in not very temperate terms. There lias been great bustle at the Stock Exchange this morning. Consols for the account ( 11th instant) opened at " 9|, and immediately fell to 78|. The market lias since recovered con- siderably. The cause of the depression is entirely ascribed to the reports respecting Russia and Turkey. The statement of the Revenue for the last Quarter, is extremely gratifying. An increase to the amount of 4211,900/. over the corresponding quarter of last year, is a sufficient proof ot the prosperity of the general interests of the country, whatever may be the state of the agricultural; and which cannot fail in the natu- ral operation of things ultimately to relieve the depression under which this latter interest is suffering. The whole increase of the year ending with the last quarter is 1,2( 11,235/. The chief in- crease is in the Customs and Excise, but the stamps have also ad- vanced 114,547/. The Post Office and Assessed ' faxes exhibit some little decline; the former to the amount of 30,000/. An. American Paper says, " if Commodore Stewart, of the Franklin, should range alongside that patriotic Pirate, named Cochrane, his Lordship may chance to get a warm reception, though not much to his liking. It appears that the flag of the United States affords no protection against the long spring- nailed fingers of such piratical depredators." The reported discontinuance of Sir Benjamin Bloomfield : a « Private Secretary to the King, is renewed, and with so many ap- parently corroborating circumstances, and through such various mediums, as to be almost universally credited. No man will deny " to the Sovereign the right which himself would claim, to choose his own confidential servants; but as the gallant General is one of the very few instances ill which a union of integrity, zeal, urbanity, and talent, render the same person alike the favourite of the So- vereign and the People, his retirement from a situation at all times important, and peculiarly so at the present, must be a source of general and animated regret.— Dublin Paper. Sir James Mackintosh is stated to be a candidate for the office o'f Recorder of the City of London. The candidates for the ancient office of Common Serjeant, are Mr. Bolland, Mr. Arabin, Mr. Denman, and Mr. Curwood. The trial of an action for damages for an assault, brought by one of the sufferers in the Manchester affair of 16th August, 1819, against four of the Yeomanry engaged on that memorable day. commenced on Thursday, at Lancaster, before Mr. Justice Holroyd.

STEWART, A. M.. Percy- Chapel, London— Divine service to begin at half- past eleven o'clock Newland- Vicarage, April 1, 1822. Good Friday was observed in this city with all due de- corum and solemnity. The Judges, who are now here, and the Body Corporate, attended the Cathedral, in the forenoon, in form. It will scarcely be believed, that, during the performance Of divine service, a respectable tradesman of this city, who was standing near the pulpit, was robbed of his pocket- book, containing up- wards of 40/. with which the thief got clear oft! We hear like wise, that on Saturday morning, a spectator in the gallery of the" Crown Court had his pocket picked of 20/. 1 We understand that, in consequence of what passed in the House of Commons on the presentation of the Monmouth Pe- tition for Reform, as stated in our last, a Meeting of the Mayor, Bailiffs, and Burgesses of Monmouth has been held ; at which, strong resolutions, declaratory of surprise and indignation felt on account of the part reported to have been taken therein by Lord Granville Somerset, were unanimously agreed to; and a spirited and manly remonstrance, signed by a great majority of the resident Burgesses, was, we believe, presented to that Noble Lord, at Monmouth, where his Lordship was officiating as Foreman of tile Grand Jury during the Assizes. We feel sincere regret in stating, that great uneasiness prevails among the work- people at the Iron- works, in Monmouth- shire and South Wales, on account of the low rate of wages, and want of employ. A reduction from 2s. 4ii. to I s. 3< i. per ton has taken place, and several hundred people are out of work ill' con- sequence. These reductions, however, we understand, are abso- lutely necessary to enable the Proprietors to carry on the works at all. Yesterday se'nnight, ( Assize Sunday,) considerable sensa- tion was caused at Monmouth, by the arrival of Mr. Lewis, of Llandilo, the Commander Of the West Monmouthshire Yeomanry Cavalry, in order to get his attendance dispensed with, his troop having been suddenly called out to preserve the peace at some of the Iron- works on the hills. Two active Magistrates ( tie Rev. Wm. Powell, Vicar of Abergavenny, and J. H. Moggridge, Esq.) likewise left Monmouth, with the sanction of the Judge, before the Grand Jury was discharged ; and Government having been applied to for troops, a detachment of the Scotch Greys is arrived in tilts city, where they expect to remain, to be in readiness should their assistance be called for. But up to the latest accounts no commotion had taken place to. render foreign aid necessary. The Lords of his Majesty's Treasury have granted fur- ther extension of the warehousing system to the port of Swansea, by the privilege of bonding West India Rum. A strata of coal has been found on Tidenham Chase, bordering on the Forest of Dean, in. this county, which is likely to afford an abundant supply to that district. A lead mine is also discovered on Gallows Hill, about a quarter of a mile S. W. of Chepstow. The miners are now work- ing in the coal and lead works. It is calculated that the Silver Lead Mines now at work in Cornwall, and others about to commence, will, in a few years, raise sufficient silver for the use of the kingdom. At Sir Christopher Hawkins's mine in that county, a plate of silver has been extracted which weighed nearly 4001hs. This mine produces two and some- times three such pieces a month. A man was found murdered in a field at Corsley, near Warminster, last week; and no discovery has yet been made of the perpetrator of the horrid deed. FAIRS.— At our Lady- day Fair, on Saturday last, there was a remarkably large shew of cattle of all sorts, particularly fat and fleshy beasts, which former, however, met with very little or no sale, and the latter sort, although rather more in demand, went off heavily and at very reduced prices ; store cattle, on account of the favourableness of the season for keep, were more sought after, and mostly sold as well as could be expected. The sheep fair was numerously supplied, but little " business done, and the prices very low for all descriptions. In the horse market, good useful cart horses sold more readily than of late, and at better prices. As to good nag horses very few made their appearance. Pigs were un- precedentedly plentiful, of all descriptions, but especially Irish, and prices, for the breeders, ruinously low. Worcester first Spring Fair, on Saturday se'nnight, exhibited a good supply of fat cattle, which averaged 4iZ. to 5d. per lb. Sheep fetched id. to M. per lb. Prime were rather on the advance ana obtained better prices. At Ledbury fair, on Monday, there was a large and remarka- bly fine shew of cattle, but the " sale was very dull, at the usual re- duced prices. At Pontypool fair, on Monday last, a vast quantity of live stock was brought for sale, and a great proportion thereof disposed of, to meet the urgent and increasing necessities of the farmers; but at prices ruinously low : it being an absolute fact, that worse oxen than were sold for 11. have been known to sell for 20/. MONMOUTH ASSIZES— The business at Nisi Prius, where there were ten causes on the paper, was brought to a close on Mon- day evening by Mr. Justice Richardson ; and that of the Crown Bar, where . Mr. Baron Garrow presided, finished about six o'clock on Tuesday evening. There were 20 prisoners for trial, of whom five received sentence of death, viz. Geo. and Jas. Walters, ( bro- thers,) for stealing five sheep, the property of Rd. Mills; Thos. Waters, for stealing ten sheep, the prope. ty of C. H. Leigh, Esq. of Pontypool Park ; Thos. Davies, for stealing in a cottage in the day time; and Saml. Ashton, for burglary. Wm. Vincent, for stealing a clock, was sentenced to transportation for seven years. Thos. Rudge and Thos. Fowler, two soldiers in the Herefordshire Militia, for enlisting into the Royal Marines, to be imprisoned twelve months ; Wm. Phillips, for manslaughter, and Jos. Wil- lis, for uttering counterfeit money, six months' imprisonment; and Wm. Jones, for stealing hay, three months' hard labour— Wm. Nichols alias Bampfield and Wm. Parker, ch urged with arson, were acquitted; as were Thos. Jones, Chas. anil Danl. Vincent, ac- cused of stealing cash- notes, and Wm. Price, charged with stealing carpenters' tools. The others, were discharged by proclamation— In the case of William Phillips, the Grand Jury ignored a bill for murder, ( the charge being against the father for the murder of his own child,) and found one for manslaughter. At Hereford, the whole of the capital convicts were re- prieved except Geo. Preece, for burglary, who li- as left for execu- tion. Ann Hannams, for the murder of her child, was amongst those acquitted, and great praise is due to Mr. Pearson, who find- ing the prisoner had no counsel, humanely tendered his services, and displayed consummate judgment and ability in conducting her defence— At Nisi Pi ius, an action brought by J. Garrett, Esq. v. J. Harris, Esq. for defamation, which had been entered fur trial, did not come before the Court, as the plaintiff withdrew the record at a late hour on Friday night. The Grand Jury had previously found a true bill fur perjury against Mr. Garrett. On Thursday night, a respite till further orders was re- ceived for seven of the condemned prisoners at. Shrewsbury W. Griffiths, for burglary at Cotton, and F. Farmer, for cutting and maiming at Stretton, were expected to suffer on Saturday. Wm. Jones, his son Edward, and Geo. Ford, are, after several examinations, fully committed to Shrewsbury gaol, on suspicion of having set fire to some stacks of hay, near that town, tiie property of Mr. Craig, as mentioned in former papers. Gloucester Assises. . On Wednesday afternoon,- the Commission- was opened at, the Shire- Hall, in this city, before Mr. Baron Garrow. and in the course of the evening, Mr. Justice Richardson also arrived. On Thurs- day morning, their I . ordships, attended by the High Sheriff, S. J. W. Fletcher Welch, Esquire, went ill procession to the Cathedral, where an excellent and appropriate Sermon was preached by the Rev. T. B. Newell, tho Sheriff's Chaplain, from 1 Peter ii. 17: " Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the King."— Their Lordships afterwards proceeded to the Shire- Hall, when the busi- ness of the Assize commenced, Mr. Justice Richardson presiding in the Crown Court, and Mr. Baron Garrow at Nisi Prists. The Grand Juries for the county and city having been sworn in, Mr. Justice Richardson addressed them nearly as follows: u Gentlemen of the Grand Jury for the County of Gloucester— I have great satisfaction at, meeting so full an attendance of Magis- trates, evincing as it does, on this as on every other occasion, the attention constantly paid to your public duties. This county, I believe, had the honour to take the lead in the internal adminis- tration and construction, as well as discipline, of Gaols ; and I am happy to observe the public attention still engaged in this interest- ing subject, that enlarged improvements arc now going on, and others under consideration. One most important point has been effected in nearly all the prisons in the kingdom, by rendering tbem free from infection ; so that instead of being subject to the propagation of disease, our gaols arc now, perhaps, the most healthy of all our numerous populous establishments. Though much has been done in the system of classification, more still re- mains to be done in populous counties, where the offenders are numerous. You have also adopted in your Penitentiary, a prin- ciple, with respect to persons confined after conviction, which, I believe, lias not been imitated in any other institution of the kind— I allude to solitary confinement. By this, the law does not mean that a person should be excluded from all communication with his friends, but merely that he should be left to himself during a con- siderable portion of the time for which he shall be so sentenced. On the subject of hard labour. 1 must observe, that the law is not carried into execution unless the prisoners have hard labour pro- vided for them in the gaol, which is intended to be more an object of punishment and example to other offenders, than of profit, to the proprietors— The Calendar, I am sorry to say, is as numerous as usual at this season ; but I am not aware that there are many cases which require any observations from nie. There are, however, two serious cases, against two unfortunate females for the murder of their offspring. Painful as they are, similar cases have engaged your attention before. As the law now stands, ( and it is as hu- mane in this case as in any other,) it is necessary that you should be satisfied that the infant did live for a period, and that its death was inflicted by violent means. Though the evidence should not be sufficient on this point, the same Act has provided a punish- ment for concealing the birth ; but I do not apprehend that any person would be put on trial for the murder, unless likely to be convicted. There are, also, two cases of arson : this is a tremen- dous offence ; it is extremely difficult for persons so charged to be brought to conviction, and it will, therefore, naturally receive your most anxious enquiry. It is an offence, however, which, 1 am glad to observe, seems to be unknown in this county. There is, likewise, another very serious case, that of a man shooting at a game- keeper with intent to wound ; but as I have not been fur- nished with the depositions, which I very much regret, I am un- able to make any observations on the case.— Gentlemen, I have nothing further to remark ; and will not at present detain you any longer from your duties." u Gentlemen' of the City Grand Jury— I am happy to observe, that the cases which will engage your attention are neither nume- rous or difficult; Nor do they require any observations from me. At. A former period, I have had to congratulate the Grand Jury of this City upon there not being a single criminal to bring before the Court; that, however, is not the case at present. I have also before had occasion to notice the great attention paid by the Ma- gistrates to the internal police of the city; and I hope they will persevere in their laudable endeavours, by the activity of their of- ficers, to prevent the commission of crimes, which is at. all times more beneficial to the community at large than the punishment of offenders— Gentlemen, you will meet at your own convenience ; as the business of the county will naturally engage my attention for three or four days." There were 92 prisoners for trial, of whom the following were disposed of when the Court broke up on Saturday evening : CONDEMNED— Joseph Holder, who pleaded guilty to an in- dictment for housebreaking at Rodborough;. and John Stone, for stealing seven sheep at Wick. SEVEN YEARS'TRANSPORTATION John Newman Hold- man, ( pleaded guilty) for stealing cloth ; WM. Corbett alias Ire. land, for stealing two cheeses and a coat, from E. Matthews, at Hailing; and Jonathan Taylor and Henry King, for stealing lead at Cheltenham. IMPRISONMENT - EIGHTEEN MONTHS : William Wilton alias Wilson, for stealing wearing apparel at Poulton, Somerset; and Wm. Davis alias Bumford, for stealing FLour, & C. in the house of B. Smith, of Flaxley— ONE YEAR : John Paginton, for steal- ing five handkerchief's at Tormarton EIGHT MONTHS, and twice privately whipped : Saml. Thomas and Robt. Williams, for stealing four books, tiie property of E. Jefferies, of ST, Philip and Jacob,— Six MONTHS : Benj. Porter, for stealing bacon at Tod- dington ; and Geo. Haines, for stealing two counterpanes, & c. at ' Cheltenham— FOUR MONTHS: George Shershaw, for stealing eggs, & c. at Quinton—- THREE MONTHS: John Truss, an ac- complice with G. Shershaw Two MONTHS: Wm. Lloyd, for stealing boots, & R. at Aylburton, ( the three latter to be each twice piirately whipped;) and Robt. Anstee, jun. for stealing potatoes, the property of E. Matthews, of Dirharn and Hinton. Wm. Sumpsion, for stealing a pair of shoes, belonging to G. Wise, of St. Philip and Jacob, was fined Is. and discharged. Robert and William French, ( millers,) against whom five bills of indictment were found true, were convicted of a fraud, in con- verting their master's property to their own use, under the pretence of perquisites, and entered into recognizance in 100/. each, and two sureties in 20,'. each, for their good behaviour for two years, and for . their, appearance when called upon to receive judgment. The following have also been found guilty, but have not re- ceived sentence; Joseph Surrage and John Wilmer alias Smith, for stealing in a dwelling- house ; Benj. Burlow, for sheep- steal- ing ; Thos. Coomb, I'- tr stealing money ; Sarah Jordan, for having in her possession articles stolen from the parish, church of Bamp- ton, Oxon ; Mary Milsom, for stealing cotton print at Tetbury; Sarah Yorke, for bigamy; and Rd. Poynter, ( pleaded guilty,) for stealing a pair of breeches at Clifton. ACQUITTED.— George Gardiner, Henry Brinkworth, Wm. Hawkins, Saml. Hughes, Chas. Brimble and Christopher Williams. No BILLS were found against Isaac Terrett, John Terrett, Hannah Pegler, Thos. Hopkins, John Pulley, Thos. Pasmore, Edw. Milsom, Sand. Mackensey, Jas. Palmer, Jos. Phillips, and Thomas Fox. There were 28 causes entered on the paper, for trial in the Nisi Prius Court, most of which have been disposed of; but the only one of any interest, was the following : BREACH OF PROMISE OF MARRIAGE. King versus Chance— This was a Special Jury case, which came on before a crowded Court, on Saturday, about one o'clock. Mr. Ludlow opened the pleadings; after which, Mr. Jervis stated the case for the plaintiff, which was one, he observed, that called upon the jury to compensate, as far as pecuniary damages could com- pensate, for one of the most cruel injuries which could be inflicted on the female sex. The plaintiff in this case, Miss Mary King, was the only child of the manager of a very extensive and respect- able manufactory, at Dursley, in this county, and was now about 32 years of age ; but at the commencement of the courtship whence the present action originated, was only 26; and tiie defendant, Mr. Daniel Gardiner Chance, was a gentleman of considerable fortune, of accomplished manners, and had served some time as a Lieute- nant in the South Gloucester Militia. Before the year 1815, he had met with the plaintiff, a young lady of great personal charms, and, attracted by her beauty, was induced to visit her at the house of her father. She was certainly inferior to him in point of situ- ation, and followed the business of a fancy- dress maker, her fa- ther's salary amounting to only 80/. a year. In the month of April 1815, the defendant, after visiting at the house of th£ plain- tiff's father, invited him to the Old Bell, at Dursley, to take some refreshment. After some conversation, Mr, King, with a lauda- ble and natural anxiety for the welfare and credit of his daughter, asked the defendant what was the object of his visits ? The de- fendant, with the open honesty and candour of a soldier, re- plied, " what more can I say, or what can I do more to con- vince you of the honour of my intentions ? May my right arm drop off, and may my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth, if I ever deceive you or your daughter: there is no one shall ever call me husband but she, and I'll make her my wife." Mr. King then remonstrated with him, observing, that as he was a gentleman of fortune, he supposed he expected some fortune; to which defendant replied, that he wished for no fortune, but the person of his daughter. After some farther conversation, the de- fendant observed, that he was old enough to be his own master, and to chuse for himself. THe Learned Counsel would not enter into A minute detail of the circumstances, as they would be eluci- dated by many letters which he had to read. Mr. Jervis here read extracts from a number of letters addressed by the defendant to the plaintiff, commencing in the year 1815, couched in terms of the warmest and most honourable attachment, and breathing sen- timents of the most tender description. The Learned Counsel dwelt at some length upon the contents of these letters, which, in several instances, alluded most explicitly to his intention of mar- rying the plaintiff. On the 4th of February 1819, however, a letter was addressed to the plaintiff', in which it was evident that his affections had begun to cool; but, to the honour of the defendant, Mr. J. observed, it bore testimony, in the most precise terms, to the exemplary virtue and propriety of conduct of the plaintiff. In the month of May 1820, the defendant vi- sited the plaintiff at her father's house ; and, without any previ- ous announcement of a change of sentiment, abruptly stated his attachment to another lady, and asked the plaintiff's consent to his marrying her, at the same time demanding that all letters which had passed between plaintiff and himself might be destroyed. At this unexpected communication she fainted away, and whilst in this state her father entered the room. Oil demanding of the defendant what was the matter, he referred him to his daughter, who, when she was a little recovered, exclaimed, " Oh ! God, this will be the death of me!" and again fainted. On recovering a second tiine, she explained to her father, as well as she was able, the cause of her distress ; when Mr. King reminded the defend- ant of their conversation at. the Old Bell, and upbraided him for his conduct. After some further conversation, the defendant re- ferred Mr. King to his. mother, at Uley, whither he went; but during his absence, the defendant renewed his demand for the let- ters, and threatened to break open the doors and locks of the house to procure them 1 On MR. King's return he found the defendant still at. his house, and informed him that he had seen his mother, who had declared to him, that he ( her son,) had been engaged to Miss Maria Evans for the last twelve months, which, the defendant flatly contradicted. A few days afterwards, the defendant wrote to the plaintiff, pressing her to give up or destroy the letters, IN die month of March 1821, the defendant's mother, upon whom lie was wholly dependant, and who. had' uniformly opposed the connection, died, AND He in con'sequence.^ AM'e into possession of- a '• landed estate to the amount. of 500/, a'- YEAR: " and,, oii tire 21st of Jan. 1822, die defendant was married to THE lady above alluded to Upon this statement of FACTS, Mt. Jervis observed, the jury had now to decide. The defendant had made promises, ami he had broken them; and the only question no » > ta be, considered was, the amount of the damages, for in rendering to the plaintiff such justice as was now attainable by the law of the land, pecuniary damages constituted the only balm which could. be poured into the wounds she had sustained. He would venture to assert that no evidence would be adduced on the part of the defendant, no Ut- ters would be read, or, if they were, there was nothing which re- quired concealment. There was no disparity of ages ; the court- ship had been continued six years, and the defendant was quite old enough to judge for himself. To the plaintiff, the loss Of six years was not to be retrieved ; her beauty faded, And her eyes, White, and azure' lac'd " With blue of heaven's own tinct"— were dimmed under the pangs of disappointment! Let it not be forgotten, likewise, that although the. defendant Himself had borne testimony to the virtuous propriety of the conduct Of the plaintiff, the censorious were ever ready to throw out insinuations; and her present peculiar situation might render her, in spite of her unim- peachable correctness, an object of illiberal- reproach. The same circumstances would operate against her forming another connec- tion. It was for the jury, therefore, to estimate the loss which the plaintiff had sustained. That the defendant was her superior in rank, was a great aggravation. To be allied to a man of honour, was the great object of female ambition ; and he was not ashamed to say, in the presence of the ladies who surrounded him, that that was one reason why tiie sex were generally so partial to gen- tlemen of tlie army, as they were equally'distinguished for their hon- our and gallantry. He did not know what his Learned Friend's elo- quence might adduce ill mitigation of damages : but the only topic he could conceive was, that the defendant's affections having ex- perienced a change, he was no longer worthy of the plaintiff S re- gards 1 In answer to this he would say, that even supposing his affections not to be within his own controul, the very moment the change commenced, and that the passion of love departed from his breast, humanity ought to have stepped in. The life of the plaintiff had nearly been the sacrifice of the cruel treatment she had experienced; and the only remuneration the law could now afford lrer was in the shape of pecuniary damages. He therefore concluded by calling upon the jury to give a very large and liberal compensation for the injury inflicted. Mr. Jervis having concluded an animated and impressive ad- dress, to which we lament that our limited space will not allow us to do justice, theCounsel for the plaintiff proceeded to the examination of witnesses, the first of whom was Mr. John King, the plaintiff's father, who distinctly proved the conversation between tlie defen- dant and himself, at the Old Bell, in April 1815, as recited by Mr. Jervis; and also confirmed the statement of the circumstances which took place in 1820, when the defendant first announced the change which had taken place in his sentiments and intentions. The defendant had frequently repeated his promise to marry his daughter, but could not say when. IF is daughter was in a large way of business, as she worked for inost of the ladies in the neigh- bourhood. After the interview in May 1820, the plaintiff continued io fits all that evening and nearly the whole of the following day ; and, since that period, her health had suffered so materially in consequence of the disappointment, that she could not attend to her business, which had therefore fallen off. The plaintiff's mo- ther died a short time before May 1820. Jane Woodward, an apprentice to the plaintiff, and Eliz. Har- ris, likewise in her employ, deposed to the frequent visits of the defendant, and the bad state of health of the plaintiff since the in- terview in May 1820. Hester King, cousin to the plaintiff, proved the defendant's hand- writing in the letters. Documents were then adduced, proving the date of the death of the mother of the defendant, his age, ana lastly hismarriage with Miss Maria Evans, on the 21st of Jan. 1822. The letters commented on by Mr. Jervis, were then put in and read; after which, John Morgan, Esq. was sworn, who proved that he rents mills of the defendant " to'tlic amount of 400/. U- year. Be- ing cross- examined by Mr. Campbell, this gentleman stated that the defendant, after tlie disbanding of the Militia, went to live with, and was entirely dependant upon, his mother. The defen- dant was certainly not a man of affluence. To the Right Worshipful the MAYOR of GLOUCESTER.

On the Motion of the Rev. JOHN KEMPTHORNE, seconded by JAMES HELPS, Esq. 3.— THAT the following Gentlemen be Members Of THE Com- mittee for the year ensuing t The evidence on the part of the plaintiff having been brought to A close, Mr. Puller, for the defendant, proceeded to address thejury in mitigation of damages. He commenced by stating that he should confine himself to that plain and simple language which had been promised by his learned friend, but which he had, somehow or other, totally forgotten in the course of his addres*; for whether he had become inflamed by his subject, or excited by his powers of ora- tory, he bad indulged them with both pathos and poetry. A prin- cipal point which thejury had'to consider, was, who are the par- ties and what are their situations in life ? The defendant undoubt- edly moved in a higher sphere and had superior connections to the plaintiff'; and the latter, in a comparatively humble situation, endeavoured to gain a livelihood by honest and virtuous industry. His client would be the last to say a word either against her ho- nour or her virtue; and if,. as his learned friend had set forth in aggravation, the censorious would render her situation the subject of unmerited reproach, it was the greatest satisfaction to him, in the name and as the representative of the defendant, to offer, in. the most public manner, his testimony to the unimpeachable pro- priety and stricdy virtuous conduct of the plaintiff. In review- ing the whole circumstances of this case, the disparity in point of situation of the parties could not fail to strike the minds of the jury. They were both young, and, under the influence of a mutual attachment, it was not much to be wondered at if they should be blind to the course which prudence would point out. But it should be borne in mind, that, from the commencement, the friends of Mr. Chance, upon whom he was entirely dependent, were to- tally averse to the connection. Of this fact, the plaintiff's father was perfectly aware, as appeared by the first conversation between him and the defendant; and yet they had heard of no interview between the former and the connections of the latter. Here the Learned Counsel argued at some length, that, in such a. state of affairs, it was the duty of Mr. King, as a parent, not to encourage the visits of the defendant to his daughter, knowing them to be unsanctioned by his relatives; and, had HE placed himself for a moment in their situation, his conduct, would have been very dif- ferent He, ( Mr. Puller), thought that it was the relatives of the plaintiff, rather than she herself, who were now seeking for redress in a Court of Justice. His Learned Friend had contended that the only balm which could now be administered to tlie plaintiff, would be by awarding her heavy damages; but if she feels as she was represented to do, damages would afford no consolation ; and, in his opinion, the best balm would be what had been that day voluntarily offered— the most public acknowledgment of her virtue and propriety of conduct. After some remarks upon what the plaintiff might be supposed to have lost, Mr. Puller proceeded to argue, that if the lady's father had acted a prudent part he would, instead of encouraging an intimacy, have represented to her that she was endeavouring to place herself in a situation where her af- fections would be continually wounded, by the neglect and want of countenance of the defendant's friends. That a real regard had existed between the parties, could not be doubted. This was not the case of a person lightly and frivolously securing the affections of a female ; for the whole tenour of the letters shewed that he had felt a strong and sincere attachment, but which was eventually borne down by the continued difficulties he had to encounter, and the unceasing opposition of his friends, whose relative situation gave thern a paramount claim upon him. In conclusion, Mr. Puller said, that he knew a Verdict must be given for the plain- tiff; but he entreated the jury not to be led away by their feelings, or by the impassioned eloquence of his Learned Friend, but coolly to weigh the circumstances of the case; and as it was proved that his client was not in the affluent circumstances which had been re- presented, he conjured tbem not to be instrumental I, J his ruin by awarding excessive damages. No witnesses being called for the defendant, Mr. Baron Garrow proceeded to sum up the evidence, and addressed the Jury in a re- markably forcible and perspicuous manner. In recapitulating die circumstances of the case, his Lordship animadverted in strong language upon the abrupt communication of the defendant, at the interview in May 1820; which his Lordship characterized as un- feeling and inhuman. By the law of the land, the plaintiff had certainly a right to be recompensed for the outrage her affections had sustained : her fortune broken, her health materially impair- ed, and her future prospects blighted, she asked for such compen- sation as the law could give.; but in making the estimate of that compensation, the jury were to consider the circumstances of the defendant, and not by giving vindictive damages, to bear too heavily upon the innocent partner of his fortunes, but to return such an amount as the justice and merits of the case under all its various bearings, seemed to them to demand. The jury, after a few minutes' consultation, relumed a verdict for the plaintiff, EIGHT HUNDRED POUNDS damages. The trial occupied the attention of the Court till nearly six o'clock.

PARLIAMENTARY PAPER. The SELECT COMMITTEE appointed to inquire into the Allega- tions of the several Petitions whieh- have been presented to the House in the last and present Sessions of Parliament, com- plaining of the distressed state of the Agriculture of the United Kingdom, and to report their Observations thereon to the House; Considered that among all tha important objects referred to them, none could be more deserving of their earliest attention than an in- quiry into any measures that could he suggested for affording some temporary relief to the distressesof which the numerous Petitioners with so much reason complain, and which appear, from the re- tarns of the average prices of. corn during the late weeks", to be progressively increasing rather than diminishing. Your Committee do net venture to determine, whether the pre- sent state of the corn market be owing to an excess of production, or to what extent that exccss may reach, beyond the usual and re- quisite supply; or whether the necessities of the occupiers of land cause an unprecedented eagerness to dispose cf their produce at al- most any price; but it appears from an official Return, that the quantity of British wheat and oats ( hut not of barley) sold in Marlf- lane, between the lst November and 1st March last, has very con- siderably exceeded the quantity sold in the corresponding months of the twenty preceding years. Such an cxcess of supply beyond demand can have no other ef- fect than to continue the depression of price, and increase the ac- cumulation of the stock upon hand ; while it is evident, from the present very low rate of price on the Continent of Europe, as com- pared with prices in this country, that there is no chance of resort- ing to the natural expedient of relieving the market by exporting any portion of our own corn, even with the aid of any bounty which would not be excessive. Two other modes have therefore been under the consideration of your Committee; by the first of which it was proposed, that one million of Exchequer Billsshouldbe applied topurchasing, through the agency of Government, and laying up in store, a certain por- tion of wheat grown in the United Kingdom; and by the second, that facility and encouragement should be offered to individuals to deposit a part of their stock in warehouses, so that they might not be forced to come into the market simultaneously, and under the disadvantage of excessive competition, but might be enabled to wait until the supply, having approached nearer to the wants of the consumers, might afford, if not a remunerating, at least a price somewhat less ruinous for their produce. With regard to the first of these' proposals, the general objec- tions against making the public through the executive Govern- ment, a dealer and speculator in corn, the suspicions to which it might give rise, and the uneasiness in the public feeling which it might eventually excite,' the danger of its being drawn into prece- dent, the claims which it might be supposed to give to other im- portant articles of domestic produce, whenever they might be ex- posed to similar depression, and the universal rule of allowing all articles as much as possible, to find their own natural level, by leaving the supply to adjust itself to the demand, discourage your Committee from recommending it, even under this extraordinary emergency, and with all the guards and qualifications of a tempo- rary expedient. But with regard to the second, although much less efficacious in its operation, the objection of Government be- coming a purchaser does not apply, as individuals would in this case act for themselves, and according to their own discretion, the Government interfering no otherwise than by making advances upon the commodity deposited, which would be repaid, with a low- rate of interest, as soon as the article should be brought to market. For effecting this object, two different modes have been suggest- ed, by one of which it was proposed, that when the weekly Ave- rage price is under 58s. ( tile import scale remaining as at present) wheat should be stored, subject to a monthly allowance of six- pence per quarter, until the average price should reach 65s. The whole quantity not to exceed 600,000 quarters, and the time for which the allowance should be payable not to exceed 12 or 18 months. Not more than a certain number of quarters, nor less than ano- ther specified number of quarters, to be stored on the part of any individual or firm. The owner of the corn so deposited to be at liberty to withdraw it at any time, waiving his claim to allowance, or refunding it. The other proposition was, that for the purpose of relieving the glut which at, present presses upon the grain market, the Govern- ment, whenever the average price of wheat shall be under 60s. should grant advances of money upon such corn of the growth of the United Kingdom, as should be deposited in fit and proper warehouses upon the River Thames, and in the ports to be here- after specified, to an extent not exceeding two- thirds of the mar- ket value of such corn ; the quality of the corn and the fitness of the warehouses to be approved of by officers to be appointed by the Government. The loan to be at the rate of 3 per cent, and , the period of de- posit not to exceed twelve months. The corn to be withdrawn at die will of the depositor, upon payment of the interest, warehouse rent, and other charges. The sum of one million so applied, would probably be fully adequate to give a temporary check to the excess which is con- tinually poured into the already overstocked market. If the House should be inclined to agree with your Committee in countenancing the latter of these propositions, it is evident that it ought to lead to some immediate proceeding ; and although no very great effect can be contemplated from adopting it, its opera- tion, as far as it may extend, can hardly fail to afford some tem- porary relief. There is another measure also to which it is fit to call the early attention of the House. The foreign grain and Hour of all 6orts in different warehouses under the King s lock, appears to have amounted, on 5th- January last, to 897,130 quarters ; with regard to which, although there is little probability that it can soon come into competition with our home produce, yet it still hangs over the market in a formidable mass, ready to be poured in at once, creating no small degree of panic as to its future operation, and invested with a sort of claim < which is of the utmost importance) to be brought out free from duty, whenever the ports shall be opened under the existing law, even supposing any duty shall be imposed by Parliament, under an alteration of that law, upon all corn hereafter to be imported from foreign parts. To relieve the market from both these inconveniences, itroay be proper to permit the holders of such corn now in warehouses un- der certain adequate regulations and restrictions, to have the same ground into flour for the purpose of exportation ; and also to pro- vide, by legislative enactment, that in future any foreign corn warehoused in this kingdom shall' be considered as corn coming from abroad, and subject to all such duties and regulations as are or may from time to time be imposed upon corn coming directly from a foreign part. A proposition, which was submitted to your Committee, for ad- vancing loans to parishes on the credit of the rates, appeared to be attended with so many difficulties, and to be so littie applicable to the purpose of alleviating the distresses which are complained of, that they do not deem it necessary to enter into any examination of it, nor to lay it before the House. Much as your Committee lament, that so little prospect of im- mediate relief can be held out to the urgent distresses which have been submitted to their anxious consideration, , they think it ma- terial to obviate and counteract any unfounded alarm which may have been, either casually or industriously, circulatcd, that there was ever the leastintention entertained by your Committee of ren- dering the present condition of the British cultivators worse that! it is under the existing law; and they therefore submit, with great confidence, to the House, that the Act of the 55th of the late King, c. 26, which regulates the importation of foreign corn, ought to continue in force until the average price for wdieat shall be 80s. per quarter, and other kinds of grain in proportion. It is impossible to carry protection further than monopoly; and it cannot be denied that tins monopoly the British grower has pos- sessed for more than three years,. that is, ever since February 1819, with the exception of the ill- timed and unnecessary importation of somewhat more than 700,000 quarters of oats, which took place dur- ing the summer of 182,0. It must be considered further, that this protection, in consequence of the increased value of bur currency, and tbe present state of. the supply of corn, combined with the pro- spect of an early, harvest, may, in all probability, remain uninter- rupted for a very considerable time to come- But for the purpose of obviating the dangers' in which this law can hardly fail, sooner or later, to iuvolve the cultivators of the soil, and in conformity to the reasoning contained in the Report of the Committee of the last Session upon the same subject, some material change must be contemplated; your Committee; therefore, cannot avoid suggesting, whether, finder a full view of all the circumstan- ces, it may not be the duty of Parliament to turn its immediate at- tention to the ruinous consequences which must follow an unli- mited importation and free sale qf tfje surplus produce of the whole agricultural world, which is known at this time to be in a state of glut, at least equal to what prevlilswithin this kingdom, no less impatient for, and unprovided with a market, with a commodity raised at much; less- change than our- own, which the proprietors would be ready- to sell even at'a considerable loss,, rather that not dispose of it at all, The excessive inconvenience and impolicy of our present sys- tem have been so fully treated, and so satisfactorily exposed in the Report already alluided- to ( p. 10 and 12), that it is unnecessary todo more than refer to it; adding only, that every thing which has hap- pened subsequent to the presentation of that Report, as well as all our experience since 1815, has more and more tended to demon- etrate how. little reliance can be placed upon a regulation which contains an absolute prohibition up to a certain price, and an un- limited competition beyond that price; which, , so far from afford- ing steadiness to our market, may at one time reduce prices already too low stHHoWot than they might have been even under a free trade, and, at another, unnecessarily enhance prices already too high ; which tends to aggravate the evils of scarcity, and render more severe the depression of prices from abundance. The mode in which these excessive inconveniences may receive some modification ( laying for the present out of the question what permanent basis mny be ultimately the fittest lor our corn trade) appears to'consist in tbe imposition of a duty upon all foreign com, whenever upon opening our jiorts it should be admissible tor home consumption. Tile occupier " of the land would thus obtain, in pro- portion to the amount of such duty, a protection which is withheld irosn him under the existing law : but in return for such protec- tion, it is- n6 more than reasonable towardsthe consumer, that the import price should be fixed at a rate somewhat lower than 80s. because tile- new duty would otherwise not only check the sudden and overwhelming amount of import, but also enhance the price beyond that which it might reach under the present system; nor must it be lost sight of in any future regulation, that owing to fne groat alteration in our currency, CO.!. rnay, and do now represent a different and considerably higher value than in 1815, as mea- sured by the price of all articles of consumption. Should'" Parliament decide to legislate during the present Ses- sion, your Committee would recommend, that, after our wheat shall have reached 80*'. whenever circumstances, not now to be foreseen", rttay ha ve effected so great a chiinge, a lower price may be assumed for the future import, subject to a duty. When the importers know that their grain can in no case come • V. ' . . '.'(_.. The highest price of any one . iriMk Ui 18112, was fiu « . hi. into the market without paying a certain; tan as duty, b* » , kit's the charges of importation, warehousing, and other incidental ex- pences, they will be less ready to adventure rashly than under an entirely free trade; they will also withdraw their. com, which may be lodged in warehouses gradually, and with more circumspection, than they do at present, and will naturally, endeavour to feed the market rather than inundate it. It is now their interest to take their whole stock, immen se as it may be, at once from under the King's lock; but when they must pay duty for every quarter which is re- moved, they will prudently calculate the time that any large stock may remain on hand before they can dispose of it to advantage. The foundation of any future Bill should be the principle of so far modifying the operation of the existing law as to obviate, as far as may be, by tile imposition of reasonable duties upon the ad- mission of foreign grain for home consumption, the sudden and irregular manner in which such foreign grain may now be intro- duced upon the opening of the ports under circumstances incon- sistent with the spirit and intentions of the law. For carrying this purpose into effect, it would be expedient, after the ports shall have opened at 80s. ( subject to a scale of duty hereafter to be fixed) to preserve the principle of an import price at a rate somewhat lower than the existing import price of 80s. and your Committee are of opinion that 70s. would not be an im- proper limit to assign to that price. That a duty of from 12s. to 15s. should be imposed upon foreign wheat for home consumption, when the price is from 70s. to 80s. Also, that a duty of 5s. should be imposed upon such wheat, when the price is from 80t. to 85j.; after which the duty should be reduced to Is. And that a further additional duty of 5s. should be imposed upon wheat imported or taken out of warehouse for home consumption, for the first three months after the ports open, and when the price is from 70s. to 85s. And for the purpose of rectifying the scale which governs the import, the general proportion which the price of oats bears to the price of wheat, appearing to exceed the proportion which was as- sumed to exist, when 27s. was fixed as the import price of oats, your Committee suggest, that it would be expedient to increase that price, so as to bear a moTe accurate proportion to the price of wheat. The scale at which barley is estimated appearing to be more cor- rect than that ef oats, the same proportion which it now bears to wheat, appears fit to continue, under any future alteration of the import prices. The 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th clauses of the Act, which regulates the importation of corn, make provision for admitting corn, meal, or flour, being the growth, produce, or manufacture of any British colony or plantation in North America, for home consumption, when British wheat is at a lower price than 80s.; with regard to which colonies, it will be consistent with good faith and sound po- licy to preserve the same relative preference above foreign corn, in the event of any future alteration being applied to the scale of prices or of duties. In compliance with an application made to them by several of tile owners of the foreign grain now stored in warehouses, your Committee have already recommended, that permission may be granted, under sufficient and adequate regulations, to convert it into flour, and export it in that shape, by which means some por- tion of this large stock will be carried out of the kingdom, and remove all apprehension that the quantities so ground down can ever enter into competition with our home produce: but in the event of a large portion not being thus disposed of, and still re- maining in store, it appears practicable to adopt a method which may render this remainder also advantageous, rather than detri- mental, in its effect upon the value of British corn, whenever the average price of our wheat shall have risen to 70s. and fluctuate between 70s. and 80s.; for if it be then allowed to be taken out for home consumption, subject to a duty of 17s. per quarter, for the first three months, and afterwards to a duty of 12s. the inte- rest of the proprietors of this grain will be brought strictly into unison with that of the British agriculturist, and into direct hos- tility to that of all other importers of foreign grain ;. so that every endeavour will be resorted to, on their part, to advance the price to 70-'. that they may liberate their own stock; but to keep it be- low 80s. that they may exclude all foreign competitors. The equi- table claim which the holders of the grain, already deposited un- der the act of the 55th of the late King, appear to possess, will thus be beneficially preserved to them, and the danger of an im- mense influx of foreign produce will be mitigated and deferred, if not wholly prevented. It must of course be left optional to the proprietors in ques- tion, to avail themselves of this permission, or to abide by the conditions of the existing law, under which they imported ; but in the first case, the payment of a moderate duty will enable them, at an earlier period, to enter a market over which they may exer- cise some controul, conjointly with all the dealers in British corn ; while in the other, they can hardly expect to stem the torrent of foreign produce poured in upon our existing supply, and the imme- diate depression of value which must unavoidably accompany it. If the circumstances of this country should hereafter allow the trade in corn to be permanently settled upon a footing constantly open to all the world, but subject to such a fixed and uniform duty as might compensate to the British grower the difference of expence at which his corn can be raised and brought to market, together with the fair rate of profit upon the capital employed, compared with the expence of production, and other charges at- tending corn grown and imported from abroad, such a system would in many respects be preferable to any modification of regu- lations depending upon average prices, with an ascending and de- scending scale of duties ; because it would prevent the effects of combination and speculation, in endeavouring to raise or depress those averages, and render immaterial those inaccuracies which, from management or negligence, have occasionally produced, and may again produce, such mischievous effects upon our market: but your Committee rather look forward to such a system as fit to be kept in. view for the ultimate tendency of our law, than as practicable within any short or definite period. A protecting duty which might at this day be hardly sufficient to guard our home market from the most overwhelming competition, might, when the excessive abundance on tlie Continent shall have been absorb- ed, operate against the real wants of this kingdom, and subject the growers, as well as the consumers, to the greatest inconveni- ences. Years of dearth may again make it indispensable to have recourse to foreign produce for a part of our supply, although in seasons of ordinary plenty it may be hoped that our own agricul- ture lias been so improved and extended, as to secure this king- dom from a state of dependence upon other, and eventually hos- tile, territories for the subsistence of its population. Your Committee have felt it their duty, for obvious reasons, to lay without further delay before the House, the result of their de- liberations ; but they would consider that they had omitted a most material part of the task imposed upon them, if they neglected to inquire into the present System upon which foreign corn is ware- housed. Your Committee are now engaged in carefully investi- gating this important subject, and they will not fail to report the result to the House as early as the nature of their inquiry will permit April 1, 1822. HOUSE OF COMMONS— MONDAY. AGRICULTURAL COMMITTEE Mr. Gooch, the Chairman, brought up the Report of the result of their deliberations; but, on the suggestion of the Marquis of Londonderry, the Report was not read, as is customary on such occasions. The Noble Marquis adverted to the probability there was, if that course was how adopted of misrepresentations going out to the world, which might be at- tended with mischievous consequences. He gave notice of his in- tention to submit a motion for the House resolving itself into a Committee of Cie whole Rouse, on Monday, the 22d inst. when he would state a practical proposition to the House, arising out of the contents of the Report; and the Noble Marquis expressed a hope that Gentlemen would come down to the House coolly and dispassionately to argiie this important question with no party feel- ing, and influenced only by the desire of alleviating, as far as pos- sible, the existing distress of the community. Mr. S. Wortley, in presenting a petition from some intelligent farmers in the county of Linlithgow, who complained of the dis- « Prices— IOth MaTch, - 10s. l yd. * a — 4&• Foil. 47 It il. C . ? 4.) tress they felt, expressed his surprise and regret. that the Bank of England still persisted to take 5 per cent, upon its discounts, and observed that by lowering them to 4 per cent, a very great relief would be afforded to the former— Mr. Manning defended the con- duct of the Bank, and mentioned as a proof of its liberality, that it had lent the whole of its capital of fifteen millions to Govern- ment, at 3 per ccnt— In reply to this, however, it was urged by Mr. Huskisson, that in return for so lending its capital, the Bank had received from Government great and exclusive advantages. Why the Bank should refuse to discount good commercial bills, at less than 6 per cent, when they were lending to the State at 3 per cent, was a thing which he could not understand even in re- ference to its own interests. Mr. Robinson obtained leave to bring in two Bills affecting Co- lonial commerce; the first designed to simplify and extend the in- tercourse between his Majesty's possessions in America and the West- Indies, and other places in the same hemisphere; the second to operate in like manner upon the trade from these possessions to the Old World. These measures arc fairly proposed to the House as a permanent and systematic abandonment of the ancient policy with respect to Navigation. In a Committee of Supply, several sums were voted ; upon the vote of 40,000/. for Foreign and other Secret Service Money, some laughter was excited by Mr. Hume saying, if the money was pro- perly disposed of, Ministers would not be afraid of saying how it was applied. Lord Londonderry called this an Irish proposition. — Mr. G. Bennett moved to reduce the estimate for Messengers' Bills &. c. from 78,00.01, to 68,000/. The motion was negatived by 0? to 19. The other Resolutiens were agreed to without a division. TUESDAY.'— Sir F. Burdett said he held in his hand several Petitions in favour of Mr. Hunt: he must take this oppor- tunity of stating that Mr. Hunt was still subjected to the petty vexations and restraints of which he had formerly had to complain. Mr. Hunt had, in fact, already suffered a punishment owing to the interference of the local authorities, even more severe than that passed by the King's Bench, severe as that sentence was; he was glad, under all the circumstances, that he had not yet brought forward his motion oil the subject of this gentleman's unmerited suffering; for he hoped that his Majesty's Ministers would, on reading over the evidence now in their possession, and giving it due consideration, adopt such a course as would render it unne- cessary for him to interfere. If, however, they should neglect to adopt this course, he would, on the 24th April, bring forward his motion. The Petitions, which were from Warwick, Bath, and Aylesbury, were then read, and ordered to be printed. The Petition of the Livery of London, adopted at the Common Hall on Thursday, was presented by Alderman Wood. Mr. S. Wortley moved to refer the Petition of Mr. Burgess for remuneration to a Select Committee— Mr. J. Palmer thought, under all circumstances of the case, Mr. Burgess was not intided to any remuneration from the public— The Chancellor of the Ex- chequer said, had Mr. Burgess been allowed to carry his plan into execution he would not have had any claim for remuneration, and would have taken his chance of profit; but as he had been stopt short in his experiment, lie was liltitled to some remuneration, not perhaps as a matter of strict justice, but as one of public libera- lity— Mr. P. Moore saw no grounds for appointing any Commit- tee— Air-. Hume . was also against giving any remuneration to Mr. Burgess— After some further discussion, the motion was nega- tived, by 3fi against 28. Mr. W. Smith gave notice, that ou 17th April he should move for leave to bring in a Bill to repeal part of the Liturgy that re- lated to the Marriage of Unitarian Dissenters Adjourned. DEATH OP ALI PACHA.—' THE following particulars respecting this circumstance, and the operations of the Greeks, are said to be derived from a most respectable source; Ali Pacha came by his fate in this way. In consequence of repeated offers made to him by Chourschid Pacha, of the Sultan's pardon, on con- dition of his surrender, Ali was at length induced to negotiate. The result of the negociation was, that an instrument was drawn up and signed by himself, and all the seven Pachas opposed to him, by which he engaged to surrender himself, his fortress, and treasures, on the condition of receiving the Sultan's pardon. Dur- ing the interval, while measures were understood to be in progress for obtaining the promised pardon, both parties remained inactive. At length the arrival of his pardon was announced to Ali, but he received notice at the same time, that it was necessary for him to give up his fortress, & c. before the pardon could be delivered to him. Ali saw now that he was lost, but he had already gone too far to allow of his receding. Arrangements were made for giv- ing up the fortress; when possession had been taken, one of the Pachas, with other officers, went to read to Ali the supposed par- don. Having entered his chambers, they found him surrounded by a few faithful followers, and they announced to him that the Firman of the Sultan contained his death warrant, and recom- mended to him, as his fate was inevitable, to make no resistance. Ali on this drew his pistol, and declaring that he would not allow himself to be taken alive, fired and wounded the Pacha. A bloody scuffle now ensued between Ali's followers and the Turks, in which Ali received a wound in his breast and fell. His followers, who amounted to about 150, were overpowered, and most of them shared his fate. His treasure was secured in the place where he himself had deposited it, to wait the pleasure of the Sultan respect- ing it. The news of this event had scarcely been made known, when most of the Turkish troops dispersed, and proceeded imme- diately to their homes. FREE TRADE.— Mr. Wallace, Vice- President of the Board of Trade, is bringing in a bill for the purpose of making London an emporium for the introduction of Foreign Manufac- tures of all descriptions; so that foreigners may have the advan- tage of making up their cargoes witli foreign goods as well as with British goods. The plan will be, to build large warehouses in London for the purpose of receiving and vending the manufac- tures of all other countries free of duty, both upon their ingress and their egress ; and this is for the purpose of giving foreigners an opportunity of supplying themselves with assorted cargoes, the produce of every part of the world, in England; at the same time it is expected that they will take an equal proportion, or a due pro- portion, of British manufactured goods along with these foreign manufactured goods. On a general principle, we certainly ap- prove of the principle of a free trade, which means nothing more than receiving all goods from all nations, and sending all sorts of goods to any nation that thinks proper to take them. This looks well enough in theory, and certainly the idea is good generally ; but we hardly think that it will bear investigation, when examined by the principle of simplicity. In all trades and among all na- tions there is much locality : England makes particular goods cheaper than India makes them ; and India, on the contrary, makes other goods cheaper than England can— and probably ow- ing to local circumstances, which cannot be accounted for on any principle whatever. England, therefore, is going to build ware- houses for the purpose of placing on the same counter a piece of dear English silk handkerchiefs, and a piece of cheap India silk handkerchiefs;— which will the foreigner take ?—' The cheap In- dia silk handkerchiefs, to be sure. Would a Birmingham man build a warehouse in Birmingham, for the purpose of giving the advantage to a Sheffield man of exposing his hardware goods on the same counter to a purchaser of any country ? Would a Stroud- water man erect a warehouse for the philanthropic purpose of ex- posing, at the same time, the Leeds man's goods in the same ware- house, and in the same town ? Or would the Leeds man be so ac- commodating to the Stroudwater man ? It appears to us, that that which will not hold good on the prin- ciple of individuality will not be good on that of generality. Why should England go to the expence of building warehouses for ex- hibiting to foreign merchants the manufactures of foreign coun- tries at the same time she exhibits her own to him ? Even admit- ting them both to be equally excellent and cheap, why should we give the foreign merchant so uncalled- for an opportunity of, even by possibility, taking the foreign article and leaving the English article? But as many goods in England arc inevitably dearer than foreign goods of the same sort, wily should we be at the ex- pense of placing both articles upon the same counter, when the foreigner is sure to take the foreign in preference , to our own ? Though we are the advocates for as free a trade as possible, yet we cannot see the policy of this new plan of trade. Our plan with regard to all foreign goods, would be to tax them upon their entry into this country, whether they were brought into the country for the purpose of being sent out again or not. If an article comes into a country, it ought, to leave a profit, however trifling, to the country receiving it. Of what possible use is it to receive any thing, except it leave something ? It is as bad as the notion of dig- ging a hole one day, and filling it up again the next. Wre would not receive any goods whatever duty- free ; a proper duty should be attached to every thing entering the country, and particularly when imported in foreign ships. On the contrary, we would suf- fer every thing to be exported free of duty, the profit arising from the production to the country being, in our opinion, sufficient, without a farthing profit in the shape of duty. We wish, how- ever, in expressing our opinion on these subjects, to be understood generally, and not particularly. What would be thought of a man who fed poultry for sale in London, who should fit up a shop, so that the Exeter man might have an opportunity of displaying his cheap goose on the counter of the London poulterer's shop, ill comparison with the probably necessarily dear London goose ? Would not the Exeter man have good reason to call the London man a goose for doing such a foolish thing ? For our own part, we should be inclined to take to the Exeter goose, at 4s. in pre- ference to the London goose of 8s. We think the experiment very dangerous, so far as the particular prosperity of the English ma- nufacturers is concerned. EARlY POTATOES.— Mr. Knight, the distinguished Pre- sident of the Horticultural Society, has supplied the long deside- ratum with regard to the seeding of early potatoes. The potatoe continues in perfection about 14 years, it should then be again raised from seed; but those of the early sort rarely bloom. The seed is procured in the common way from chance seeds from plants of the latter variety. The preternatural formation of the tuberose roots is the cause, according to Mr. Knight, of their not seeding. He gives the following as a mode to obtain a certain supply of seed: The potatoe sets must be planted in little heaps of soil, with a stake in the middle ; when the plants are about four inches high, the earth is to be washed away by a strong current of water, so that the fibrous roots alone enter the soil.: these are totally different from the fibres furnishing the potatoe. When this plan is followed, numerous blossoms appear, which furnish abundance of seed; and thus new and improved varieties may easily be obtained. FIRES IN SUFFOLK.— On Thursday night, a few mi- nutes after seven, a barn, about 80 feet in length, and tiled, con- taining 20 or 30 coombs of unthrashed barley, at Mr. Byles's ( the Upper Hill House), St. Clement's, was in an instant enveloped in a tremendous blaze. A wheat stack of 70 or 80 coombs, an old waggon, and some pigs, were also destroyed. Providentially, ano- ther wheat stack and the stable, & c. contiguous, were preserved. The thrasher, who had been employed all the day in the barn, left it at half- past six ; 20 minutes afterwards, the farming bailiff was there after a ladder, and again left it secure ; and within another quarter of an hour it was covered on every side with flames. This instantaneous bursting forth of the flames in all parts of the build- ing, strengthens the conjecture, that some phosphoric, or inflam- mable composition, is made use of by the incendiaries for these purposes. The premises, but not the stock, were insured ; and a reward of 200/. is offered. We understand, also, that a society of gentlemen, in and near this town, have agreed to subscribe from 500/. to 1,000/. to be paid on conviction, as a reward to the disco- verer of any such perpetrator in this neighbourhood. On Tues- day night, at eight o'clock, another fire at Mendlesham terrified that neighbourhood. A barn, containing 40 bush faggots, and a new waggon, loaded with straw, were destroyed, on the premises of Mr. Wright. Yesterday se'nnight, about seven o'clock in the evening, a fire broke out at the back of the Lion Inn, Lavenham, adjoining to Mr. East's garden, which providentially was extin- guished before the damage exceeded 50/. This is also supposed to be the malicious act of some inhuman incendiary. In that town patrols are appointed every night. On Tuesday, Mr. Owen Roe, of Ipswich, discovered a fire- brand ( a burnt piece of wood, about two feet iong), with a bunch of matches under it, placed in a straw- stack, standing in the centre of his stack- yard, and surrounded by many others of corn and clover. He has consequently had his pre- mises well watched and guarded ever since. IMPORTANT TO SERVANTS.— Lady Mary Lindsay Craw- ford having, in the month of February, dismissed her head gar- dener for being absent three or four days from his duty without leave asked or given, he brought an action against her in the Court of Session, claiming wages and board wages down to the Martinmas. The Court having, by a majority, found that her ladyship was not warranted in dismissing the man, and that he was entitled to the wages which he claimed, with expences, she appealed to the House of Lords. The Chancellor on Wednesday week delivered his opi- nion, that Lady Mary was fully justified, and therefore moved that, the interlocutor complained of be reversed, which was accord- ingly ordered. His Lordship added, that he doubted much whe- ther the man had not forfeited his claim to any wages due to him, for the term prior to his dismissal, by his having absented himself without permission. Savings BankS.— Convinced that these benevolent in- stitutions must materially promote the welfare of the labouring classes, we regret to hear it reported that many depositors, in va- rious places, have withdrawn their money, from a false apprehen- sion that the interest will be lowered : we therefore think it our duty to state that the Act of Parliament, which established the u Fund for Banks for Savings,*' gives no power to pay it off at any time, and fixes such an interest as enables the Savings Banks to allow^ wr cent, to the Depositors, after paying all the expences of management. DRIVING.— The great Match made by Mr. Boulton Hawker, of Littleford, Suffolk, to drive five horses 74 miles in five hours, was undertaken early yesterday morning on tile Bury St. Edmund's road, over 12 miles of ground. The stake was for 200 guineas, to make the best of his way. He started in as light a sulky as could be placed upon wheels, arid did each 12 miles as follows :— The first in 47 min. 10 sec— Second, 48 min. 50 sec.— Third, 49 min Fourth, 54 min. 20 sec— Fifth, 47 min. 22 sec. — Sixth, 50 min. 18 sec.— The race was won easily, with four mi- nutes and fifty- seven seconds to spare. EXECUTION.— Yesterday morning a considerable num- ber of persons assembled in the Old Bailey, to witness the execu- tion of Edw. Cochran, convicted at the last Sessions of a burglary in the house of a lady at Harrow, with whom he had formerly lived servant. Considerable interest had been excited by the schemes resorted to by this malefactor, as well- as Wm. Osborn, convicted of the same offence ( but who was respited on Saturday), for the purpose of effecting their escape. It appeared, that during the time they were in Tothill- fields prison, Osborn contrived to get some of his associates outside to provide a large meat pie, which, being conveyed into the prison, was, from circumstances of sus- picion, examined, and found to contain, besides the customary in- gredients, a pair of pistols, with powder, ball, & c. They were in- tended to have been used in shooting the turnkey, and by that means they were to have effected an escape. Osborn, subsequently, by the assistance of a female, escaped from the strong room at Bow- street- His respite is stated to have been granted in conse- quence of his having been a domestic in the service of a deceased illustrious personage.

ILLICIT DISTILLERY.— For some time past the Excise have had information, that a private distillery of considerable magnitude was in existence in the neighbourhood of Upper Thames- street, but so secretly was it conducted, that the exact place could not be ascertained fill within the last few days, when an: anonymous communication was sent to the Excise, that it was carrying on at the extensive premises, No. 24, Upper Thames- street, and the proprietors were understood to be sugar- refiners. In consequence of this information, Allanson and several active officers, repaired thither on Wednesday afternoon, and on getting fo the premises they found painted on the door post, " Gwilt and Co.;" and on the door was written " No persons admitted except on business." The officers first endeavoured to enter without being perceived; but finding the door fastened inside, they were induced to ring a bell at the side of the door, when down came a gentleman dressed very respectably, who, on seeing the officers, opened the door and rushed by them, into the street, without saying a word. Allanson proceeded with the other officers gently up stairs; when, on get- ting to the first floor, three men rushed out of the front room, ran up stairs, and effected their escape at the top of the house. The officers, on entering the room, were nearly suffocated with steam, two stills of considerable dimensions' being then at work The room was extremely well fitted up as a distillery, with water pumps erected therein, and the water laid on with leaden pipes, commu- nicating with the yard; the front windows were blocked up, to prevent the operations being discovered. The officers then com- menced a vigilant search, when they found upwards of 2200 gal- lons of molass- wash, 200 gallons of low wines, 100 gallons of strong spirits, altogether making about 441 gallons of spirits; twenty- two wash- backs, vats, still- worms and heads. The whole of this extensive apparatus was immediately conveyed to the great store- room at the Excise office- This illicit trade lias, it is said, been carrying oti for ( T'otasiderable period.
