TH E VEGETABLE TOOTH- POWDER has so long been in general use tbat it is Unnecessary to offer any further re- commendation of it. Composed of Vegetables, without tbe admixture of any Mineral or per- uicioua ingredient wbateve, it ris free from the usual objection aginst tbe use of other Denti- frices. Its detersive power is just sufficient to annihilate those destructive particles which ad- here to tbeGums and the Interstices of iheTeeth; healing injuries in the former, and promoting a new Enamel ( where it has been injured or corrod- ed) on tbe latter. It likewise imparts a firmness and healthy redness to the Gums; and if used regularly will preserve the Teeth in a sound stale lo old age.

The present President of the Roynl Academy thinks the colouring of the plates is as closo an imitation of the originals, as is capable of being produced ; and several distinguished Royal Acade- micians have testified that, they cannot suppose there can he two opinions on ihe merits of the plates, both in regard to the engraving and colouring, and that they are certainly most exquisitely fiuished, aud unique. The Copper Plates of this Work have been de- stroyed, agreeably to a late Act of Parliament ; and as ihere aid very few complete sets existing, the work must become scarce, and increase in value.

JAMES'S POWDER, S acknowledged to be the greatest Dis- ivery in Medicine during the last Century, lu Cases of Fever it will often efiVct a Cure in a few Flours, especially when fieelv given and at r be Outset o'f the Disease. It is administered v ith equal Success in all Attacks of Measles., St. Anthony's Fiie, Sore Throat, Pleurisy and Rheumat ism ; but as Colds and Catarrhs partake more or less of inflammatory Symptoms, this Powder is peculiarly efficacious in cutting short their'Duration ; which, however, harmless they may be thought, often terminate in Pulmonary Affections, the fatal Consequences of which are but too well known. As an Alterative in Chronic Diseases, it is an admirable Remedy. The genuine Dr. James's Powder is sold by Messrs. Newbery, at the Original Warehouse, No. 45, in St. Paul's Church- Yard, with full Directions for its Use; bv W. EDDOWES, Shrewsbury, and by their Agents thronshout the Kingdom ; but Purchasers will p- articulaily observe the Name ". F. Newberyin Mve. Black Stamp on each Bottle and Packet. For Worms, Fits, Pains Stomach, fye. the "^ yORMS are the cause of many in- rnal afflictions, which vavy so much in their effects tbat they may be mistaken by the most eminent physician, and prove equally fatal to the constitutions of adults and r bildien; though the latter more extensively suffer from their de- structive ravages. Their inoie usual symptom* are FITS, PAIN IN THE STOMACH, SIDF, AND HEAD, LOSS OF APPETITE, AND PALE, LAN GU ID, AND EMACIATED APPEARANCE IN THE PATIENT. Tbe extraoi dinai v efficacy nf CH ING's PATENT WORM LOZENGES in all snch com- plaints, as well as in obstructions in the bowels, and every disorder where opening or cleansing physic is required, is so universally known, aud has been publicly acknowledged by so many per- sons of distinction and rank in society, that it is unnecessary here lo enlarge on their peculiar virtues.

D. and Physician Extraordinary to the 1 King. rg^ riESE very justly celebrated PILLS J » L have experienced, through private Recom- mendation nnd Use, during a very long Period, the flattering Commendation of Families of the first Distinction, as a Medicine superior to all others in removing Complaints of the Stomach, arising from Bile, Indigestion, Flatulency, and habitual Costive- j ness.— The beneficial Effects produced in all Cases for Which tlv. ey are here recommended, renders them worthy the Notice ofthe Public, and to Travellers in particular, to who. se Attention they are strongly pointed out as the most portable, safe, and mild Aperient Medicine that can possibly be made use of. These Pills are extremely well calculated for those Habits of Body, that are subject to be Costive, as a continued Use of them does not injure but invigorates the Constitution, and will be found to possess those Qualities that will remove a long Series of Diseases resulting from a confined State of the Bowels, strengthen Digestion, create Appetite, and be of distinguished Excellence in removing Giddiness, Headaches,& c. occasioned by the Bile in ihe Stomach, nr the ill Effects arising from impure or too great a Quantity of Wine, Spirits, or Malt Liquor. Persons of the mo* t delicate Constitution may take them with Safety iu all Seasons of the Year; nd in all Cases of Obstruction arising from Cold or other Causes, where an opening Medicine is wanted, they will be found the best cordial Stimulant iu Use.

At Surinam lately, by languor opprest, A Traveller sought tlie oblivion of rest; While it ehane'd in the room that conspicuously plac'd, Stood his Boots, by the Blacking transcendantly grae'd. ' Twas then that a native attendant withdrew Aghast,— for a form iu the Jet met his view,— " The Vampyre!" in accents of horror he cried4— " The Vampyre!" the terrified Inmates replied ; u The Spectre of Guinea, of dreadful pursuits, 44 Now flits, to and fro, in the Traveller's Boots!" Behold from the Jet then, this gaunt monster go, And fixing its fangs on the stranger's great toe, Suck his blood and disgorge, yet inflicting 110 pain, Suck his blood and disgorge still again and again ; Its wings o'er its victim while fanning they keep, Securing a slumber protracted and deep !—* " Now rouse him from stupor I" a friendly voice cries, 44 The Vampyre his blood else will drain till he dies!" A shout then was rais'd, and deserting its prev j It wing'd thence, the monster, its ominous way ! 1 Now starting from sleep as the Traveller stood, I Pale, ghastly, exhausted, and crimson'd with blood ; j He sought explanation, though speech was denied— " The Vampyre! the Vampyre!" each spectator cried. Unknown, unmolested, the Vampyre had kept Its seat,— and the Traveller eternally slept, Unless like a mirror the bright Boot had serv'd, And timeously thus his existence preserved ! Since then Surinam is most forward in backing The Vampyre detector in WARREN'S Jet Blacking * This monstrous Indian Bat, or Vampyre, or Spectre of Guinea, also called the Flying Dog of New Spain, and by the Spaniards Perrovolador* makes its attack exactly in the manner here described. rjpMIS pay is published in 4to.

OME time since, during the winter season, 1 bad tbe misfortune to have a / all, by which I '• eceived a wound in my right leg; > ha wound did not appear at first to he of much < 011. seqocnee, but finning that its appearance became alarming. I placed myself under the rare of a medical gentleman, of Shrewsbury. His efforts proving ineffectual, I applied to another of tlie Shrewsbury faculty, and subsequently to four others, nil of whom were reputed for their poweia in the healing art; but rather than my wohml being cured, it relipsed into a most frightful ulceration, rendered still more afflictive and dis- tressing by the apparent necessity of my leg being taken off. Having thus obtained all the advue that money could purchase, anil also laken a in<>> t incredible quantity of physic, froth which 1 t'id not derive the smallest portion of benefit, I was about to commit myself into the bands of the Surgeon, when fortonatelv, 1 wax induced to en- quire after Dr. Smith'' S Ploughman s Drops, and before 1 had taken tbe tiaif of one small bottle the wound began to as « uuje the most healthy ajipcarance 1 continued to tike ibe Drops, tt* the amount of five small bottles, and my leg gradually returned Jo its wonted state of sound* ness, aud has'continued so to the present timej It would be an ungrateful feeling on my part were 1 to withhold my heartfelt testimony to the valu- able properties which these Drops contain, and I am Iherefoie called upon lo avow that 1 consider this one of the finest cures that ever came within my knowledge, and fhall be glad at any time to give my personal attestation to the same.

LONDON— SATURDAY. RUSSIA AND TURKEY. Nothing certain is yet known as to the rejection tl'.:: Russian ultimatum.—- The accounts by the German and Flanders mails continue lo repeat the rejection of the Russian proposition by the Divan, on the - 28th of February. On the other hand the Austrian Observer, which is the official paper of the Cabinet of Vienna, is wholly silent on the subject. The Journal des Debats, Paris Paper of Sunday last, in an article dated Nurcmburg, March SI, gives an account of the state of the negociations between Russia and the Porte, anterior to the hostile note, which is said to have been delivered by the Reis Effendi to the Foreign Ministers on the 28th of February. According to this statement, the principal diffi- culty was the evacuation of Moldavia. The Porte appear, eti at last disposed to make the Turkish troops fall back behind the Danube, but only on condition that Russia should withdraw her army from the Russian frontiers, and in general put a Stop to her warlike preparations. The Porte also persisted in the appointment of Caimacans to the Government of Wallachia and Moldavia, who, though Greeks, are mere instruments of the Turk- ish Commanders. But the most difficult point was how to find ways and means for indemnifying . , Russia for the extraordinary expenses which she | Katherine Sophia has incurred by maintaining, during six months, j ' rr""' in her frontier provinces, an army of 150,000 men. j " Such ( says the Nuremburg article) was the | situation of affairs before the - 28th of February. That day Turkey threw down the gauntlet, and it j remains. to be seen whether Russia will take it up. I The non reception of the Turkish Note at Vienna j seems to be a step taken for the purpose of declaring that Russia is unacquainted with it, either because the European Powers wish to make one attempt i more for peace, or because they are desirous of obtaining time to conclude a convention respecting the measures to be adopted in common against Turkey." ' A letter from the banks of the Danube, dated March 25r says—" The Turkish grand army, which has been for a long time past assembled at Adria- nople and Constantinople, is in full march for the Danube. A strong division of Jannisaries forms part of it. It is accompanied by a numerous tra n ef artillery. Many European, and particularly English officers, are serving with it." Letters from the banks of the Dwina announce that the Russian troops are also putting themselves in motion. In the course of a few days five regi- ments of cavalry have arrived at Riga, and large convoys of ammunition are on their way to Odessa. Hostilities will commence as soon as the roads shall be passable.— Conslitutionr. el. F The Prince of Canino ( Lucien Bonaparte), who j was at Brussels on affairs connected with the j marriage of his son, has, at the demand of a neigh- bouring power, been ordered to quit that city. ) The Glasgow Sentinel says, " It is currently ; reported in town this morning, that the Earl of j Rosslyn, one of the seconds in the late duel, has heen apprehended in Edinburgh.""— Another Glas- gow paper says—" We hear that some great . characters in Edinburgh were on Saturday bound j over to keep the peace. The Opposition Leader, and the Bard who tells * the tales of other times,' ! are mentioned as the parties." The papers received this morning from IRELAND | present a more favourable view of the state of that | kingdom. The long list of outrages has disap- peared from their columns, and the peasantry , evince a disposition to resume their former peaceful habits.;— At tbe Clonmel Assizes, twelve prisoners received sentence of death. At the Assizes for Cork, two men were found guilty of the atrocious outrage on the women of the rifle brigade near Kildorrery. THE KING V.

Mr. Samuel, Wbitehouse, late of West Bromwich, currier, was robbed and murdered on the night of Wednesday week, the 3d inst. on the road leading from the Lightvvoods, near the fourth milestone on the Hales Owen road to Old bury and Dudley.— It appears that the deceased had on that day been shooting in the Lightwoods, in company with a brother- in- law, Mr. Joseph Downing, of Rowley, and that after dining with him at the house of a blacksmith named Fox, iu ihe Beech- lanes, they left together on horseback, ou their return home, about nine o'clock iu the. evening; and that within the space of half an hour, and at the dishmce of little more than half a mile from the cottage of Fox, tbe deceased was found by a lad return'ng from West Bromwich, lying across the road quite iilsensib'e. On being taken up he was cmveyedto the Beech- Tree public house, where he lingered in a state of insensibility until Friday'morn- ing, when he died. On examining the body it was discovered that his death was occasioned by a dread- ful blow oil the back of the head from some heavy weapon, by which the skull was shockingly fractur- ed. It was also ascertained that he had been robbed of several bank notes, bis watcli, chain, and seals, a'ul a leather shot- pouch— A Jury assembled on the day frd'Owing his death, under the direction of Mr. HiiicUliife, Cornier for the county of Salop, and the investigation vvas resumed on Wednesday and Satur- day las?, from which latter day it vvas again adjourned uni. il Saturday next.

[ From our Private Correspondent.'| A mail arrived to- day from Constantinople wilh letters to fhe 12th ult. They are not later in date than the advices received by way of Odessa, but, being from better sources, they contain some addi- tional in formation.— Another note vvas presented to the Divan, ou the 10th, by the Austrian, English, nnd French Ambassadors in conjunction, calling on them to order the immediate evacuation of tbe prin- cipalities by the Turkish armies, as the only mode of avoiding hostilities. No answer to this had been returned on the 11 tb, when the letters left Constanti- nople.— What decision might be ultimately taken by the Turkish Cabinet, was held to be matter of consi- derable doubt.

The Letter of CLERICUS, including, as he requests, his two former communications ( now pub- lished with his REAL SIGNATURE attached, and which were first published with reference fo the v Agri cultural Report for Herefordshire by T. A. KNIGHT, Esq.'), i « , from its great length, unavoidably post- poned till uext week. served, he was sure this notification would afford matter of great regret to all who knew, and every one in the habit of attending on the Sessions must know, how ably and impartially Sir Corbet liad fulfilled the important duties of that situation for so many years.— Lord Viscount CLIVE then moved, that THOMAS PEMBERTOX, Esq. be requested to take the Chair, which motion was unanimously agreed to. Mr. Pembeiton accordingly took the Chair, and the Court immediately proceeded with" the appeal.". Yesterday, after dinner, Lord Visccint CLIVE, after passing an eloquent eulogium on the eminent services of Sir Corbet Corbet, proposed that the Clerk of the Peace should be directed to convey the Thanks of the Magistracy fo the worthy Baronet, expressive of their grateful acknowledgments for the assiduity, correctness, and legal discrimination with which he had discharged the arduous duties to which lie had devoted himself, aud their great regret at his resignation. The Hon. RTIIOMAS KKNYON seconded the motion. The CHAIRMAN ( Mr. Pemberton) then rose, and having apologised for intruding himself after the Noble Lord and the Hon. Gentleman, said, he could not, as one who had so often bad an opportunity of appreciating the services of their late Chairman, let the occasion pass by without adding bis ( eompara lively unimportant) meed to that of tbe Noble Lord and ihe Hon. Seconder. It was, he believed, in the year 1800, that Sir Corbet first received from them ihe Chair of the Quarter Sessions for this County ; and after an unwearied and almost uninterrupted service of 22 years, lie now, from declining health, resigns the appointment into the hands of those from whom lie derived it. A constant and unwearied gratuitous labour <> 7 so many years in tlie duties of a public office, comprehending in its nature much and important matter, united to an honest, able, and faithful discharge of those duties, is a well- earned claim to the greatest reward that can be bestowed— the thanks and acknowledgments of the public, and particularly of those with w hom he vvas associated in office; and, applying this observation to their late Chairman, lie was certain there was not a Magistrate present whose sentiments would not accord with his own. He rose, not to utter a studied eulogium, which so often bore the semblance of disguise aud flattery ; but when be said that their friend and late Chairman would carry with bim their sincere regret for his loss, and their warmest acknowledgments for his services— that their most cordial wishes for his health and happiness would accompany bim in his retirement— he was certain that he spoke the real and genuine sentiments of every Magistrate present. The motion vvas then unanimously adopted. Lord Viscount CLIVB then moved, that Thomas Pembertou, Esq. be requested to retain the Chair, and that the Hou. Thomas Kenyon be requested to accept the situation of joint Chairman. This motion wa* seconded bv THOMAS WHITMORE, Esq. arid also unanimously agreed lo. At the General Quarter Sessions for the County of Salop, yesterday, Mary Buckley and Hannah BeSford, for picking the pocket of Benjamin Dawes, at Newport, of a pocket- book, containing 4 one- guinea and 4 one- pound notes, vyere sentenced to be imprisoned 1 year.— John Davies, for an assault, to be imprisoned 6 cal. months.— There were no other prisoners for trial, except for common misdemeanors.

" By Ihe Court, " T. MORGAN, Prolhonotary." CARNARVON ASSIZES. ROBERTS I:. EVANS. This was an action for slander, brought by Mr. William Lloyd Roberts, of Llanrwst, who laid bis damages at £ 2000, against the defendant, a highly respectable solicitor in Carnarvon. It appeared that the plaintiff, in the year 1821, was acting as clerk to Mr. J. Williams, then a solicitor residing at Llanrwst, Denbighshire, but now of Llanfyllin, in tbe county of Montgomery, that he was engaged as a clerk at a certain salary, the five last years at £ 80 per annum, and that at the expiration of that term, Mr. Williams had agreed to take him as an articled clerk, to enable hiin to qualify to act ns an attorney. Mr. Will i: tins was tbe only evidence called by the plaintiff. He stated that at the Spring Assizes held at Bala in 1821, the defendant took him on one side, and expostulated with him on the impropriety ofhis continuing the plaintiff iu his service, that it was disgraceful and would be bis ruin, that it was from a long intimacy and friendship with his family that the defendant thus cautioned him, and that if be persisted, he would wait upon his connexions, as he could prove plaintiff had done things for which he ought to be banged. Witness declared that he did not consider this conversation as uttered in confi- dence, that he divulged it to plaintiff, and further declared that it was solely in consequence of this conversation that be discharged the plaintiff. On cross- examination, witness admitted that this dis- cbarge was not immediate, that plaintiff continued to act for him for nearly three months, in eonsequeuce of witness being in an ill state of health.* Mr. Palmer, counsel for the defendant, denied that any special damage had been proved— that the words spoken by defendant were uttered in confidence, and purely out of friendship to Mr. Williams, and were not uttered in malice. That Mr. Williams, in dis- charging plaintiff, had tacitly acknowledged their truth, and that tbe action for special damages should have been against Mr. Williams, who, though be discharged plaintiff, had just declared he was per- fectly satisfied witb bis conduct whilst in his employ, and after citing some cases, moved the Court to non- suit the plaintiff—( this, after argument, was not acceded to ) Tbe learned counsel then wished to call evidence as to the plaintiff's character, but ns there was no justification entered on the record, this the Court disallowed ; on which a bill of exceptions was tendered, The defence then went to prove, tbat plaintiff had been actingsiibsequently for M r. W. Jones, ofTyddeti Elen, attorney, who was deputed by Mr. Williams to carry on some business in the Courts, and that in a conversation with Mr. Robert Jones, attorney, of Llangollen, plaintiff declared this to be only a trumped- up action to get £ 2000 from defendant, and which conversation he had put down on pnper, but which paper he had subsequently burnt. Chief Justice TRAWERS here summed up tbe evidence with great minuteness. He considered that the evidence of Mr. Williams had not been ma- terially affected either on his cross- examination or by defendant's witnesses.— Tbe Jury would take all the circumstances into tbeir consideration. He thought that plaintiff had proved his claim for special damages, to the amount of salary he would have been entitled to, viz. £ 80 for five years, amounting to £ 400. As to the claim for loss in being deprived through his discharge of serving as an articled clerk, and entering into tbe profession, he did not see clearly, as this was rather a remote contingency, how they could come to any estimate of damage; on tbe other band, if yon think this a trumped- up action, for the purpose of extorting money out of the defend- ant's pockets, you can only sufficiently reprobate it by returning a verdict for defendant. The learned Judge went on to state, that unacquainted as he was with the characters of the parties, this being his first visit to the Principality, he felt satisfied that the gentlemen of the Jury, from their knowledge and acquaintance with the parties, would return that verdict, which, in their enlightened judgment,[ should best meet the justice of the case. The Jury, which was special ( James Wyatt, Esq. foreman), after retiring about half an hour, gave a verdict forthe plaintiff— Damages £ 5. Counsel for the plaintiff', Mr. Wyatt ( Attorney- General), and Mr. Blackburne; for { he defendant, Messrs. Palmer, Williams, and Cochrane. [* It came out in the course of this examination, that persons, not attornies, are in the constant habit of using attornies' names, and practising in tbe County Courts— a practice which we were much pleased to hear both the Judges declare to be highly prejudicial, and contrary to law, and which, if persisted in, tbey were determined to punish . j Jl_ tude for the unprecedented Support which he has been favoured with during Twenty Years be lias been in Business, begs to return sincere Thanks to the Nobility, Gentry, and all his Friends; and an- nounces to them and the Public in general, that be has taken into PARTNERSHIP his late Foreman, WILLIAM WILKES, and that the Business will in future be carried on by them, under the Firm of DRIVER k WILKES, and upon the same Principle which has been honoured by such distinguished Patronage. They most respectfully solicit a Conti- nuance of tbat Support which has hitherto been so liberally bestowed, and assure their Friends that they will use all the Exertions in their Power to give Satisfaction in the Execution of all Orders entrusted to them.

MANCHESTER RADICAL MEETING.— The. character and objects of the meeting of professed Reformers at Manchester, in August, 1819, has been again decided in a Court of Justice. On the recent trial at Lancaster ( see 4th pagewas proved by a host of unimpeachable witnesses, that the Riot Act was read on the occasion in question; that the Yeomanry, in tbe lawful'discbnrge of their bounden duty, were resisted and assailed by a tremendous mob, with sticks, stones, and brick- bats; that their horses were cut; and even that pistols were fired by some of the Reformers, who came armed, to deliberate under the presidency of the notorious Hunt. Tbe factious and the seditious portion of the Press at that time laboured hard to promote the designs of the Revolutionary Reformers, hy asserting the innocent intentions of ihe Radical mobs and of their leaders and abettors, - though they must have known the contrary ; but these incendiary attempts were not the onlv endeavours made by such writers to delude the public, and to promote disaffection and dis- turbance in the country. It is impossible now, how- ever, for any one to be so much misled as to doubt, after readiqg the evidence on the trial, that the town of Manchester was in a stale of great alarm and of dreadful agitation on the 16 th of August, 1819; and that it was not without real cause, is pretty well proved by the following extract of a letter from Mr. Richard Carlilc to Mr. Henry Hunt, contained in one of the former worthy's recent Republicans. 44 I know not what the Manchester men are to think when you compliment them with running away ! If you bad been as bold and as honest as one half of them, that massacre would not have taken place, or, at least, it would have been a massacre of a very different kind. If any fight had been offered on the part of the military, it would have been at the risk of a fair battle, a circumstance that, iii riiy opinion, \ VouId have kept the Magistrales and Yeo manry in a different humour.—. There was a general expectation of an attack from the military, and the Reformers were anxious to come to that Meeting armed, but your veto put a stop to it, and brought them to be inassacied unarmed. It icas offered to you that fifteen thousand men should come to that Meeting armed'- with pikes ; and your saying that you would not. meet them upon any such conditions, alone put a stop to the matter, and led to tbe dis- astrous result that followed. Yet you charge fhem with running away ! Tbey did not run avvav. When theYeomanry appeared on the field they were received with long and loud cheering, and when they formed for an ad vance^ to tbe hustings, the brave fellows, at a considerable distance round the hustings, linked themselves as compact as possible to assist you in the best manner they could, unarmed, and you stood and saw thc Yeomanry cut their way through them, which occupied - some minutes to do, to get at you on the husiings." After such a declaration from one of the prime actors in the scene itself, and in those preparatory to if, no man can doubt of f lie dangerous and diabolical designs of such miscreants. We have, in the 4th page, stated our reasons for not again detailing- the evidence given last week at Lancaster; but as the case is one of great interest, shewing-, as it does, what were the real designs of the assembled Reformers and their avowed as well as their secret abettors, the following address to the Jury by Mr. Serjeant HULLOCK, which is a correct outline of what was more fully proved hy the witnesses on the present occasion, will not be ' unacceptable to our readers and the public :— May it please your Lordship, and Gentlemen of the Jury, I have the honour to appear before you as Counsel in this cause for the defendants, and 1 have to request your patient and indulgent attention. I lament unfeignedly that the important office has de- volved on me, instead of a more able Advocate, of vindicating the honour and repntalion of individu- als, who bave been for a length of time subject to tbe falsest calumnies and foulest misrepresenta- tions. You are now, in April, 1822, called upon to give to the plaintiff ( a journeyman hatter) compen- sation for an alleged civil injury, supposed to have been inflicted by the defendants on one in an bumble sphere of life. The poor man has tbe same title to the administration of justice as the riehest and great- est, when lii. s complaints nre well founded. I am proud the opportunity is at last afforded to repel, with scorn and contempt, imputations that have been ma levolently perpetuated. My learnedFriend shews that he is totally ignorant of the plaintiff. But is he the real plaintiff? Whence comes the means for institut- ing this action? How i$ it that he has been enabled to bring down a London attorney, Mr. Haywood, of Cursifor- street, Chancery Lane, and such a number of ni » n<- s » es I J. s he any thing more than a puppet, moved AY persons behind the scenes? whose real object is to revive this painful, mischievous topic? As to the proceedings at Oldham, they disgraced the county of Lancaster. My learned Friend gives no proof of the plaintiff's protracted illness, by any one single witness. Where are his doctor and the nurse- tender ? Where is any neighbour acquainted with the effect of his wounds? Not one. If the plaintiff had suffered this injury as described, would lie not have gone to Captain Birley, and demanded reparation : and if refused, have told him of his intention to prosecute for so barbarous an assault ? No sucb application was made. If the country was in a state of great disiress in 1819, were wicked de- magogues likely to abate it ? But the distress is not proved,. The first witness, a hatter, says be was earning 20 shillings per week ; the next a weaver, was receiving 17to 18 shillings a week ! Do you think that by consuming their nights and their mornings in drilling their families could be maintained ? I aver that any such meeting as the one iu St. Peter's Field, sq assembled, of such a magnitude, a meeting congregated under such circumstances, with inscrip- tions of a. revolutionary chnracter, headed by such men as Henry limit and Richard Carlile, never was considered, at any period of our history, as a legal meeting. If must of necessity have put at hazard tbe respectable, wealthy* and loyal portion of ibe peop! e of Manchester. His Lordship will tell you, that it could not be otherwise than illegal. Is if to be endured, that men like Mr, Hunt and Mr. Carlile should enter a county with which they had uo con- nexion— convene large bodies of people, and stiinu. late them by harangues to a violation of the public peace? Not only Magistrates, but Constables are justified in dispersing sucb a meeting ; and if the Magistrates of Manchester bad not acted at the crisis at. which they did, my honest conviction is, that Man- chester would not bave survived that niglit. For weeks tbe population of Manchester and ils vicinity had been preparing for what they called 44 The great day." My learned Friend himself was compelled to give up all idea that the meeting could deliberate. His own evidence told you, that the only means of communication between the different parts of the meeting was a shout from one parf, answered by a shout from another. We are not indeed at all able to get at the precise objects of the meeting. But I shall, Geiiilemeri, show you the real intention wiih which this meeting was called. It was to follow up the objects which Hunt had declared at a meeting at Sinillifield, of a most treasonable character. Mr. Hunt had in various tours been 44 opening the eyes of the people."—[ The leariiedGenllemnn here produced and descanted upon those abominable Resolutions of the Smitlifield meeting.]— Here, Gentlemen, is one Reso- lution of a conditional allegiance lo ibe Constitution, depending ori the consciences of Henry Hunt, Esq. and Richard Cailite, Esq. the deist and blasphemer. At the meeting called in Manchester for the 9th of August, to elect a representative for the unrepre- sented inhabitants of Manchester, Major Cartwright, Sir Charles Wolseley, Mr. Pearson, ( a London at- torney,) Godfrey Higgins, Esq. and Henry Hunt, Esq. were expected to attend. That, however, did not take placc ; but on the 16th a meeting did take place; and though the purpose vvas disguised, the intention was still the same. And previous to if, there was a general drilling and exercising of the people by military rule. This was a system. For what purpose was this ? None but for a conflict with the regular troops. Much of this drilling was bv night. At Cockey Moor, the very plaintiff, Redford, was no inconsiderable person in them : sometimes he assumed the command, and sometimes he was drilled with others. He vvas ibe very person, too, it is ill evidence, that was chosen to carry the Mid ! leton flag to tbe meeting. Previously to the meeting, Mr. Murray and Mr. Shawcross, of the Police Office, were dreadfully abused whilst viewing the drilling parties at While Moss : they compelled Murray to abjure bis allegiance to the King and the Constitution. On the morning of ihe Kith of August, to manifest their feelings of defiance and confidence, a large partv stopped and raised a tremendous noise when they reached the house, of Murray. Another large column marched by ibe Exchange, where many gentlemen were assembled, and Mr. Hunt, nt ifs bead, scowled on those gentlemen looks of insolence aud defiance. He next moved his column towards the Star Inn, where the Magistrates were assembled, and In Ihe same way insulted them. These respective divisions marched with a measured step, in companies, re- gularly oflieereu : they gave ihe command, were im- plicitly obeyed, and each division or column had its flags, with inscriptions; its bugles, ifs drums and fifes. My learned Friend ( the Counsel for the plain- tiff) says there was nothing in such inscriptions as 44 Liberty or Death ; 7' but, they, thus used, could mean nothing but this— we nre determined to ac- complish that equal representation which we seek, or nor survive the failure. Can any man, wilb all the circumstances of the meeting before him, say these inscriptions were necessary to any other pur- poses but those of disaffection, insurrection, and treason, which the leaders of that meeting had con- templated ? The Cap of Liberty, too, was perfectly harmless in the estimation of my Learned Friend ; but who can doubt the object for which if was intro- duced in the military cavalcade of Henry Hunt, Esq. that it was introduced there as it vvas in France, ns the emblem of revolt and rerolution ? associated as it was with banners, daggers, & seditions inscriptions. The Magistrates of Lancashire and Cheshire were fully apprised of all the proceedings going, on in the disaffected districts. And allow me here to say, that if ever there was a body of men who more fully merited tbe gratitude of fhe other and humbterclasses of society, it is the Magistrates of the county in which I now address yon. They are men of charac- ter, and of education, and can have no object incom- patible with the peace and the happiness of the community amongst whom they reside. You will, Gentlemen, I have no doubt, by your verdict, declare— lhat as faithful conservators of the peace, that first duty of the Magistracy, the}' could not have acted in any other manner than as they did. They went to live at Manchester, to protect tbe vast mass of property which you all know is centered in that town, and to preserve tbe peace of the country. To be close to the meeting, tbey repaired to ihe house of Mr. Buxton at ten o'clock on the morning of the Kith of August, and carefully observed all the preparations for and proceedings of the meeting with their own eyes. What Mr. Stanley's feelings may be as to the existence of danger, I know not; but this I know, that that danger was of a nature to try the nerves and courage of the boldest man. Appli- cation had heen made by many men of property and Character in the town of Manchester, stating their sense of the danger in which that property was placed, and the apprehensions that were entertained from the formidable array of that congregated meet- ing. Two lines of Constables were arranged to keep intercourse between tbe Magistrates and the hustings, to enable the civil power to take up one or two individuals Under a warrant. Tbe parties on the hustings soon checked this design, by causing a pressure of the multitude. I will shew yon, by unquestionable evidence, that there was an impe- netrable barrier opposed to that access; that there was a linking of arms of seven or eight rows deep, round ihe hustings. Was there ever a meeting, Gentlemen, in tbe history of the country, which, though it might have been assembled without any arrangement for disorder, could not be stimulated to violence and outrage by one or two active incen- diaries? Some of you must know of fhe dreadful riots in the metropolis in 1780. There a mob assembled, not one- third in numbers equal to the acknowledged mass at Manchester, under a man of family— of integrity— but even he was unable to repress a violent fermentation. The Lord Mayor of London refused to call out the military— Newgale was fired — Roman Catholics were destroyed, and their houses assailed. In the course of one night it became necessary to call in regiment after regiment, until af length a warfare took place which terminated in a lamentable effusion of blood. What were the effects of the recent meetings at Spa Fields ? A wild expression used by young Watson excited plunder and effusion of blood. And was there ever a public meeting such as that of the 16th of August, convened, too, hyon itinerant demagogue, always on the alert in work of mischief? The Magistrates were bound to disperse such a meeting: they were bound to preserve tbe peace of the country from the machinations of men of desper- ate habits, of desperate fortunes, and of desperate principles Information being legally given when Hunt and others were on the hustings, ten of the Magistrates signed a warrant for his arrest. It is idle to say lhat the civil poorer should have first tried to execute the warrant. The civil power was not blindly to expose themselves to massacre and death. The civil power will tell you what their decided impression vvas. Both Constables and Magistrates agreed in the same impression, and of these Magis- trates I will call seven before you. They expressed that opinion through their Chairman, Mr. Ilnlton, upon whose character and conduct the most shameful and unmerited misrepresentation has been cast; for there does not exist in this great and opulent county a man of higher honour, or more unblemished cha- racter, or indisputable veracity, than Mr. Ilulton— a man who, if he had not displayed the courage which lie did on that day, well knew that the properties &: lives of the inhabitants would have been the probable sacrifice, and general insurrection tbe result. But he shall have, this day, ample justice done him at your hands. It was agreed by the Magistrates, without one dissentient voice, that the warrant could not be executed without a military force. And I will shew, Gentlemen, with evidence so numerous as almost to saturate you, that not a blow was struck by tbe Yeomanry before ihey reached the husiings ; that not a blow vvas struck until they had experi- enced, by the throwing of stones and brickbats at them, almost an insurmountable resistance. They were entitled to repel force by force, and every thing that subsequently occurred was legal. It was a single troop of yeomanry cavalry : they had scarely entered the crowd when the mob closed upon theni, and it was the impression of the Magistrates, and of men well capable of judging, that if prompt assist ance had not been afforded by the other military, that troop of yeomanry would have been annihilated. It was so considered, and orders were sent to Colonel L'Estrange accordingly. As to what has been said by Mr. Shnttleworth and Mr. Greg ( witnesses called by the plaintiff) as to their impressions of alarm, I care nothing for them. Tbere were 50,01) 0 persons on that ground who would stale that they felt no alarm. It is to that sense of danger which those felt who had there a duty to perform, and who, as con- servators of the public peace, were responsible for its preservation, that you must direct your attention. Finally, Gentlemen, it will be proved to you that the yeomanry acted under a warrant from the Magis- tra'es, and in obedience'to that warrant; and his Lordship will tell you, that under such circumstances, the plaintiff should have brought his nction within six months after the infliction of the injury. You are called upon this day, Gentlemen, to per- form a great and weighty task : it is most important that the principles of justice should never be sacri- ficed lo tbe pleasure of any class ; and therefore, in anticipating that verdict which I feel the defendants will receive at your hands, I am anticipating- what I know will he most satisfactory to the virtuous, the reflecting, and ihe impartial portion of the commu- nity. It is a question whether the laws and conslitu tion of this realm are to exist; for co- exist they cannot with meetings of assembled multitudes, whose arrangements and array indicate nothing but excite- ment to insurrection and to blood. Under these impressions, Gentlemen, I leave the case with con- fidence in your hands.

Tbe colliers have ( as we term it) struck for wages, and parries. of* them are ranging the country as beggars & vagrants, which it may be feared may end in plunder and violence ; it therefore behoves every one to be on b; « guard against them, ond as there is at present suffi- cient employment for colliers and ironstone miners at reduced prices, by which tbey may earn from 2s. 6d. to 3s. 6d. per day, according tn theiremploy- ment, it is a wrong and ui'siaken duty to relieve them, however distressing tbeir tale may be. The workmen know that the iron trade and manufactures in general cannot be carried on without coal, and their object is to force their masters to raise their wages by stopping their work ® , in which they pro- ceed so daringly as to go from work to work, and oblige those who are peaceable and inclined to work, to come dill of the pits and leave their employment. We have no laws to oblige men to work against their will, if tbey can live without, but our laws are strict and imperious lo protect the property and the labour of the well inclined, and what property bas a poor man but his labour ? 44 Magistrates and country gentlemen are apt to consider tbe situation of miners as unfortunate and compassionate, but for 25 years there have been no men more comfortable, or better fed and clothed, nnd they have no real sufferings at this time, ns they can now afford to live as well for 18s. per week as they could a few years back at 30s. per week ; it is there- fore strongly necessary for the Magistrates to keep a strict eye upon the colliers' conduct, and to have ihe country cleared of them as dangerous to society Should not the same means be. used with them a* with common beggars? Why should strolling colliers be permitted to alarm the country, when their work is not only badly wanted, but many furnaces, iron mills, and iron manufactories, are in danger of stop- ping their works through their obstinacy, which if not speedily remedied, will create confusion, and adit other evils to our already unfortunate situation ? If 1 have written strong, it is because I have been a collier's master 40 years. I know them well, and if tbey are suffering a little, and cannot enjoy their ale two or three days a week, their makers are in ft much worse state, for if they cannot reduce their labour to a moderate state, they must throw up their affairs or submit to ruin." p " COMBINATION AMONGST WORKMEN.— OII Saturday last, Thomas Turner, Wm. Rea, George Hancox, and Hugh Dryhurst the younger, journey- men braziers, were committed by Isaac Spppner, Esq. and the Rev. J. H. Spry, two of his Majesty's Justices of the Peace for the county of Warwick, to the house of correction for six weeks, there f « > be kept to hard labour, for combining to prevent their masters, J. Kendall and Co. of Birmingham, from employing whomsoever they thought proper in their manufactory.— And on the same day, Samuel Green, another journeyman brazier, was committed by the same Justices also to six weeks* hard labour in the house of correction^ for attempt- ing- to prevail upon some journeymen working for the said J. Kendall and Co. to leave their service because they employed a particular woikman. REDUCTION OF POOR RATES.— The Poor Rates of Birmingham for the year just ended, were' one third less than those of the year preceding. This reduction has been as much caused by care- fully attending to the expenditure and to the im- partial collection of the rates^ as by the improved state of business. During the last year there was a reduction of4 £ 3780 in the expenditure of the parish of VValcot ( Bath). Since Sunday, the 31st ult. Upwards of five hun- dred and sixty vessels are supposed to have sailed from the port of Liverpool.— The Custora- housC books, on the 30th ult. presented a list of one huni dred and fifty vessels loading for foreign countries; a circumstance unprecedented in fhe history of that place.

R OF FORGED NOTES.—* On Friday last, Ann Layshaw alias Sarah IVardle, a woman about 40 years of age, underwent a second examination at the Lanibeih- street Police Office, London, and was further remanded for another week, upon four distinct charges of uttering forged Bank of England £ 5 notes.— This i « the notorious female who, under the name of Mrs. Wardle, was committed on a similar charge to Stafford Gaol, in 1817, and convicted, but from which prison she contrived to make her escape on the 4th of January, 1818, the gang wifh which she was connected having bribed one of the turnkeys to connive at her escape. f., r Which be was himself transported.— When examined on Friday last, the Sitting Magistrate told her l e was aware of her exploits aud infamous character • that she stood in a frightful situation; and, if si e had twenty lives, they were all forfeited to Bank prosecutions, to say nothing of her being already a convict.— This woman had beeu for some time un- heard of; but her old occupation at length betrayed her. It appears that a few months ago she obtained lodgings at a small public house at Tewkesbury^ pretending to be a lady's maid in a family then at Cheltenham, who were about fo visit iu the neigh- bourhood of Tewkesbury. Under the pretences this statement afforded her, she occasionally left ibe house for a few days, and frequently received and forwarded parcels containing what were believed to be genuine cash notes : she contrived by fabricated tales to get the servant of tbe bouse dismissed, and theu conde- scended to assist the old landlord and his wife by doing most of the work which ihe girl had done. At this juncture the landlady died, and the landlord, smitten by tbe arts and address of bis lodger, to whom he now made proposals, was about to marry her, when a casual kitchen customer recognized her as an old acquaintance, and broached the tale of her conviction nt Stafford, &, e.; this Unfortunate business obliged her to decamp, and the poor land- lord, vexed at the affair, and conscious of bis im- propriety in thus harbouring and proposing to an unknown female, in a few days put a period to his existence! and there is no doifbt a short time will put a period to the life of his deceiver. THE OXFORD CIRCUIT terminated at Gloit* cester on Tuesday last; at which place 11 prisoner^ received sentence of death* but they have all been reprieved.— Reprieves have also been received for George Preece condemned at Hereford ; and for Guest and Brittle at Worcester. The Assizes for the county of Warwick term- inated at six o'clock on ( he evening of Saturday week. Ail the prisoners capitally convicted, with the exception of William . Judd, for uttering forged bank notes, were reprieved the same night. LATE DUEL IN SCOTLAND. In our Journal of the 3d inst. we stated the fact of a duel having taken place between Sir Alexander Eoswell, Bart, of Auchinlcek, and James Stuart, Esq. jun. of Dunearn, Writer to the Signet. John Douglas, E?<|. brother to the Marquis of Queens- berry, was second to Sir A. Boswell, and the Earl < f Rosslyn to Mr. Stuart. In this duel Sir Alexander fust his life.— The following is said to be a correct copy of the song, which occasioned the duel, omit- ting only the name of a gentleman who has had no share in this much to be lamented transaction:— mire S^ NO.

Thc Glasgow Courier states, that the manner in which Mr. Stuart obtained the information that Sir Alexander was the author of the above song, v. as as follows :— " A person, named Borlhwick, was concerned in the Sentinel at the time an article appeared in that paper reflecting upon Mr. Stuart, and for which the paper is under prosecution for a libel. Some mouths ago Borthwick went out of the concern, and an ad- vertisement was published in different newspapers, stating the dissolution of the co- partnership, and that he ceased to have any concern or interest in the Sentinel. Borthwick relinquished his share aud claim under an agreement for a sum of money, which, he alleges, has not heen fulfilled, and is, in consequence, at this moment, carrying on a prose- cution against the other proprietor or proprietors of the Sentinel, either to receive ihe sum in question, or to he admitted again as a partner in the concern. Borthwick was subsequently incarcerated in our gaol for a debt amounting to £ 50. On Sunday, the 10th rent, a legal gentleman from llanilton came and ten- dered the £ 50 for payment of Borthwick's debt, und got him liberated from prison the same day ' .. VI.... L- P.., rl ing of Sunday, the 9th of March; lhat about sev<, 1V o'clock uext morning he went to the office, and took from one of thc desks which was open, and from another of which he still retained the key, the manu- scripts iu question ; that he conceived himself en- titled to do this ; « ll| d lhat he had a strong induce- ment lo it, namely, to save himself from the conse- quence of prosecutions brought against him through the acts of his partner. A young man, who had been a compositor in The Sentinel Office, and who, it is said, was employed by Borthwick to carry the papers to the Tontine, has also been committed on a Justi- ciary warrant, as his master's accomplice."— Dundee Advertizer. In the event of the trials of the surviving prin- cipal and seconds, that of the Earl of Uosslyn, being a Peer of the Realm, will take place at thc bar of the House of Lords. It is stated, that when a duel takes place upon a challenge, and is followed by the death of one of the parties, it is, by the laws of Scotland, murder on the survivor, how fair and equal soever the manner of conducting the coinhat; and that the bare act of engaging in a duel is also a capital crime; though neither of the parties may have suffered in the encounter. Another statute also made it punishable, with banishment and escheat of moveables, to be concerned in fhe giving, send- ing, or accepting ofa challenge, even though uo combat should ensue.— It is a singular circum- stance, lhat Sir Alexander Boswell himself should, in 1819, have been the author of a bill in parlia- ment, which afterwards passed into a law, to repeal tlic latter statute ; and thus the punishment applicable t « > all those concerned in the affair in which he fell, is, through his instrumentality, very different from what it otherwise would have beeu. CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. Next fnorninf, about eight o'clock, Borthwick went to the Sentinel- office, arid bv force broke open the desks, and carried oft' the whole of the papers arid manu- scripts. These he carried directly to the TonUne Inn, where Mr. Stuart, of Duncaro, and another gentleman of the law from Edinburgh, were, and who had come there on the preceding Saturday evening. The papers were all delivered into the hands of these gentlemen, who selected what pleased them, but delivered the remainder to Borthwick or his agent ; and departing to Edinburgh that evening, carried those they had selected with them. From these papers, the discovery of the author of the article mentioned, as well as that of others, was made. Mr. Stuart, we hear, was never out of the inn during the time Ire was in this city. Where ihe £ 50 came from that was paid for the liberation of Borthwick, no one concerned knows. Alt affect ignorance. A legal investigation is, we understand, going on re- garding these extraordinary proceedings, about which the public will, we presume, soon receive more information. It is asserted that no regular dis- solution of the Sentinel Co- pnrtnery eter took place, and that Borthwick never ad vertised out of that con- cern. To ascertain this we turned over the follow- ing files:— The Sentinel, where we find the adver- tisement in that paper of the 28th November last— our own, where we find it in the Courier of Decem- ber 18th, and in the ' Edinburgh Gazette of the same date: in each, regularly witnessed and with the signatures of both partners attached. What right Borthwick had, without, legal authority, to go to tbe office of that Paper and carry away any papers, but more especially papers that had beeu received there after he had relinquished all share in the concern, we cannot divine. The song which led to this fatal duel, was inserted in the Sentinel of the 26th De- cember, a month after the dissolution We nmst live under strange laws, if such proceedings can he tolerated, or held as legal and just. After this we hope we shall hear no more from certain quarters about the infamy of employing spies and informers." The Ayr Courier, of a recent date, says—" VVe understand that, when Sir Alexander Boswell fell, Mr. Stuart immediately left the ground, without con- descending lo make any inquiries respecting the fate of his antagonist; and such was his confusion and perturbation of mind, lhat he was iu the act of leaping into Sir Alexander's carriage, when he was informed of his mistake, lie then hastily entered his own, and ordered the postillion to drive off' with all speed. Sir Alexander was placed upon a board, and carried to Balmuto House. He appeared quite sensible. On arriving at a stone dike, part of w hich had to he pulled down to allow them to pass, with a characteristic feeling, he said to those who were supposing him, that he feared they would find him too heavy, and requested them to lay him down until the impediment was removed. If is said, lhat he submitted the consideration of the whole affair, along with Mr. S.' s challenge, to six Gentlemen, of known respectability, professing to be guided by their own decision ; and that these gentlemen having been equally divided in their opinions, for and against a meeting with Mr. Slnart, Sir Alexander said, that since this was the case, he would give the casting vote, which was reserved to himself, on that side, from w hich the laws of honour admitted of no alter- native." The following is a Copy of a Letter from Hope, near Bathurst, Cape of Good Hope, dated Dec. 3: —" The opening for commerce is now belter than ever for our part of the country. The problem of the anchorage off the Kowie river, and the entrance over the bar, were solved by the Elizabeth schooner. S! ie left Algoa Day with a freight principally for Government, anchored off the Kowie on the evening of the 8th of November, rode safe and easy through the night, although' it blew fresh, and the next day weighed anchor at half tide, and came over the bar with even her foretbp- gallant- sail set, without ship- ping a single spray. She discharged her cargo, and careened alongside the shore as at a wharf. There is a vessel of 50 tons register, which has been built at Cape Town, for the purpose of coasting from thence into the Kowie and back. Whenever it may please the Almighty to cause us to have good crops, we shall be sure of sending our surplus, particularly of butter, cheese, bacon, ham?, salt beef, and leather, to Cape Town and to the Mauritius. Pigs, that were very scarce indeed amongst its when we first arrived, begin now to be pretty plentiful. "" The change effected in the appearance of the country, Since the arrival of the first settlers in I April, 1820, is wonderful. Algoa Bay, the town of Port Elizabeth, where there were only two houses, boasts now of 30 and upwards. Graham's Town consisted then of 22 houses, now of 60 aud upwards; 50 more building lots are granted and measured out, and must be built upon within thc twelvemonth, or foifeited. Bathurst has sprung from the w ilderness completely, and contains, built or building, between 40 and 50 houses, besides handsome barracks. Upwards of 70 building lots, in all, have been granted or sold, and must conse- quently be shortly built upon. Another town is now forming on the right bank of the Kowie, not far from the mouth, which will increase in ratio with the navigation of that river, and the trade carried on. " Fredericksburg, across the Fish River, was only founded in June, 1821, and contains already 26 houses built, besides the barracks, and nearly as many more building. All the towns which I have now mentioned have been founded under the authority of Government. Besides these, there are a number of very decent villages, built by the different parties of settlers. One in particular I shall mention, which is important from its size, and the order with which their affairs are con- ducted, both spiritual and temporal, i mean Salem, founded by the party which came from England under the direction of Hezekiah Sephton. The town consists of 75 houses ; the remainder of the party are in three neighbouring valhes. I hey have a market every Thursday. Their temporal concerns, as a body, are under the direction of a Committee of II ; their Minister is a Mr. Shaw They have an every- day school, and a Sunday school. They are Dissenters ( Methodists), lieli gion is the tie that binds this numerous party together. The Court of Circuit sat at Bathurst in October, and the Dutch Code of Laws, aiid manner of adminstering justice, so much deprecated by the settlers, and for which they so much wished to substitute Trial hy Jury, and God knows what, was universally pronounced to be strictly in equity, and devoid of all quibble; and if it had a fauit, it was too lenient. 1 am sorry to say rice and flour are at a most ruinous price ; retail, rice 6d per lb.; coarse flour ( that is, with all the bran in it) 6d.; fine flour, 9d. and lOd. j potatoes ( what few are ever brought lo market) arc 10 to 12 and 14 rix- dullars the sack." FOREIGN NEWS. The news from Paris is to the 7th inst. The proofs of a plot of deep and serious extent having existed, are still from time to time elicited by the activity of the Police. On Thursday last a number of cases containing" arms were seized in Paris ;— there were between 5 and 600 muskets with bayonets; many pistols aud swords. France, however, is in apparent tranquility. The funds have decl'med something more, arising doubtless from the probability of war in Turkey. I Madrid Papers to the 28th of March have been received. They are chiefly filled with details of revolutionary outrages committed, or attempted, in various part of that distracted country, and tend to induce a conviction that a terrible crisis must be the result. There is no stability in any of the great component parts of civil society. Laws are made and unmade; Ministers are appointed and. dismissed ; Magistrates are in office to- dav, and in exile to- morrow; all other public functionaries share similar vicissitudes; while the people, tossed to and fro on this agitaled sea of revolution, know not how soon they may be engulphed beneath its waves. Letters from Lisbon, dated the 19th ult. state that in the Sitting of the Cortes of lhat day, the Committee of 12, appointed to take into consider- ation Ihe state of the relations between Portugal and Brazil, made their Report, which was unani- mously agreed to. It recommends, among other moderate conciliatory arrangements, that orders be dispatched directing the Piince Royal not to leave Rio Janeiro, and to remain there until the general organization of the kingdom of Brazil be completed. Letters from Hamburgh say, accounts have been received at Copenhagen from Iceland. While the winter in the east of Europe has been remark- ably mild,,, it set in early in Iceland* with great rigour. Vast quantities of » now fell, and the northern and eastern coasts were wholly blocked up with floating ice. In the night of the 20th of December, the mountain Oefields Jokel, to the south- east of Hecla, which has been at rest ever since 1612, began to emit fire, so that the ice with which it was covered suddenly burst with a dreadful crash, the earth trembled, and immense masses of snow rolled from the summit of the mountain, a height of 5500 feet. Ever since a large column of tire has been rising from the mountain, which threw out vast quantities of ashes aycl stones, some of the latter weighing from 50 to 80 pounds, being cast to the distance ofa German mile ( five English miles). The mountain continued to burn till the lst of February, and smoked till the 23d, hut at that time the ice had again collected round the crater. The weather was very unsettled and stormy during the eruption. Advices received from the United States bring the important intelligence that the President had sent a Message to Congress, recommending them to recognise the Independence of the Son lb Amc- icau Provinces. " Mr. Borthwick, of The Glasgow Sentinel, was apprehended at Dundee on Wednesday, and carried to Edinburgh early on Thursday morning, by Mr. Patrick MiTrrav, messenger at arms, on a Justiciary warrant, charging him with having abstracted several letters and other manuscripts from the Printing office of lhat paper. The legality of Mr. Borthwick's con- duct. we understand, is involved in a question still pending, as to whether, at the time of his taking the papers, he was or was uot a proprietor ? His state- ment is, lhat he was so : that he had agreed, no dmibf, to sell his interest in the concern to his part- ner Alexander; but that the latter not having ful- filled ihe conditions of the bargain, Borlhwick had obtained a judgment of the Magistrates at Glasgow, reinstating him in thc possession ; that he accord- ingly resumed possession before witnesses ; but was immediately thrown into prison, on an old caption for debt; fhal he was liberated by hiiageut on the eveu- A gentleman in Suffolk ( Mr. Rouse) has pub- lished an essay, in which he has shewn that farmers were formerly allowed the value of 96 quartern loaves for every quarter of wheat, for a period of 500 years of our written laws; that is to say, the average value of a quarter of wheat fixed the price of the quartern loaf, which was the 96th part of that average; the rest of the produce of the quarter of wheat, valued at eight quartern loaves ( making one hundred and four in the whole), was allowed for grinding, baking, and selling ; leaving also the offal ( as bran, & c.) to ihe trade. By comparing the average price of wheat ( taking Mark- lane as the standard) with thc price of bread, farmers now only get the amount of about fifty- five quartern loaves, leaving the value of fifty- four, or nearly half, to the traders and corn dealers. FZARLY POTATOES.— Mr. Knight, thc distin- guished President of the Horticultural Society, has supplied the long desideratum with regard to the seeding of early potatoes. The potatoe con- tinues 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 follow- ing 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 thc soil: these art; totally different from Ihe 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. The Devizes Gazette says :—" On Sunday week two women, who represented themselves as soldiers' wives, proceeding from Jersey to Ireland, applied at the Office of the Sherborne Mendicity Society for relief. They had beeu recommended to adopt this course by a man whom they met at the lodgin: house, who, having received similar assistance offered to conduct the strangers to the Office. Before he left them however, he stated that they would in all probability be searched, and that if they had any money in their possession they had better intrust it to him until they had undergone the expected ordeal. Their joint stock consisted of I ls. Od. which they readily placcd in the hands of their friendly guide, and then entered the Office, Tbeir story was heard, and tickets of relief given them; but on looking for the fellow who held their secret hoard, he was now here to be found, he had , hastily decamped, leaving his dupes to lament and anaiheiuatigc such " tricks upon travellers." Account of an Old Man of the Aye of King William; by Dr. Silli. man. Two miles from Whitehall, on the Salem- road, to Albany, in ihe state of New York, lives Henry Francisco, a native of France, and of a place which he pronounced Essax. He believes himself to be one hundred nnd thirty- four years old, and the country around believe him to be of this great age. When we arrived at his residence ( a plain farmer's house, not painted, rather out of repair, and much open to the wind), he was up stairs, at his daily work, of spooling and winding yarn. This occupa- | tiou is auxiliary to that of his wife, who is a weaver, and ahho' more than 80 years old, she weaves 6 yards a day, and the old man can supply her with more yarn than she can weave. Supposing he must be very feeble, we offered to go up stairs to him, hut he £ oo » came down, walking somewhat stooping, and supported by a staff, but with less apparent incon- venience than most persons exhibit at eighty- five and ninety. His stature is of the middle size. He still retains the front teeth of his upper jaw ; his mouth is uot fallen in, like that of old people, gener- ally, and his lips, particularly, are like those of middle life ; his voice is strong ^ nd sweet toned, although a little tremulous ; his hefyiug very little impaired, so lhat a voice of usual strength, with dis- tinct articulation, enables him to understand; his eye- sight is sufficient for his work, and he dis- tinguishes large print, such as the title- page of the Bible, without glasses; his health is good, and has always been so, except that he has now a cough and expectoration. His father was driven out of France hy religious persecution, aud fled to Amsterdam ; by his account it mnst have been on account of the persecutions of the French protestants, or Huguenots, in the latter part of the reign of Louis XIV. From these dates we are enabled to fix the time of his birth, provided he is correct in the main fact, for he says he was present at Queen Anne's coronation, and was sixteen years old, the 31st day of May, old style. He said he fought in all Queen Anne's wars, nnd | was at many battles, und under many commanders, hut his memory fails, and he cannot remember their names, except the Duke of Marlborough, who was one of them. He has been much cut up by wounds which he showed us, hut cannot always give a very distinct account of his warfare. He has had two wives, and twenty- one children ; the youngest child is the daughter, iu whose house he now lives, and she is fifty- two years old ; of course he was eighty- two when she was born ; they suppose several of the older children are still living, at a very advanced age, beyond the Ohio, but they have not heard of them in several years. Henry Francisco has been, all his life, a very active and energetic, although not a stout- framed man. He was formerly fond of spirits, and did, for a certain period, drink more than was proper, hut that habit appears to have been long abandoned. In other respects he has been remarkably abstemi- ous, eating but little, and particularly abstaining almost entirely from animal food; his fovonrile articles being tea, bread and butter, and baked apples. His wife said, lhat afler such a breakfast, he would go out and work till noon; then dine upon the same, if he conld get if, and then take the same at night, and particularly, that he always drank tea when he could obtain it, ihree cups at a time, ihree limes a day. Little could I have expected to converse and shake bauds wilh a man who has been a soldier in most of the wars of this country for one hundred" years— who, more than a century ago, fought under Marl- borough, in the wars of Queen Anne, and who, ( already grown up to manhood), saw her crowned oue bunded and seventeen years since; who, one hundred & twenty- eight years ago, and in the century before the last, was driven from France by the proud, magnificent, and intolerant Louis XIV, and w ho has ved a forty- fourth part of all the time that the human race have occupied this globt! RUSSIA AND TURKEY. The recent warlike demonstrations of the Turks are stated to have mainly arisen from their exult- ation at the death of Ali Pacha, who had been taken prisoner by thc force sent against him ; Ali's head had since been exhibited at Constantinople. The following is an extract of a letter, dated Odessa, March 12:—" The new accounts which we receive from Constantinople, of the date of the 7th, confirm the previous statements of the enthu- siasm excited in the Turks by the fall of Ali Pacha. This intoxication of success has already cost the lives of many Greeks ; scenes of barbarity and ferocity have been renewed in the capital, and the people are eager for war. The Reis Effendi, in the Conference of the 16th of February, held pretty temperate language to the British Ambas- sador, but the Note which he had delivered to the Foreign Ministers proves that he only sought to deceive the Noble Lord; we know from good authority, that it is expressly said in it, that if the Porte has not at the same time demanded tbe restoration of the fortresses which it has lost in Asia, it is pure moderation on its part. The Ottoman Cabinet also accuses the Austrian Cabi- net of partiality to Russia in the exertions of its Minister to maintain peace. These two points may enable us to guess at the rest of this Turkish Note; and we may be eaasily persuaded that the measure of the iniquity of that Power is full. Some persons affirm here that the first news of the rejection of our ultimatum was known on the 5th iust. and that it was immediately sent to St. Petersburg!!." Dutch and Flanders Papers to the 9th instant, contain the following details of a conflagration at Jassy, and of the ensuing deplorable consequences : " Frontiers of Moldavia, March 14. " On the 9th, in the evening, a fire broke out at Jassy, and destroyed before the morning 580 houses. The others had already been so devastated by the Turks, that this city, which contained many elegant buildings in the most modern European taste, re- sembled a heap of ruins. The Janissaries in Jassy were accused of having been the cause of the fire, and got into a quarrel on account of this accusation wiih the other troops ( Tilemes), so that a sharp con- flict ensued between them, which was not over when the post departed at 10 o'clock P. M. of the 11th.— The Janissaries fought with great fury in the streets of the unfortunate town; the Tilemes defended themselves from the houses, by which 100 of the inhabitants were killed or wounded, on the first day. Of the Janissaries, 190 killed and 80 wounded w ere brought into the yard ofthe Prince's Court. The loss of the other party could not he conjectured.— Some Germans who have arrived froin Jassy cannot find terms to describe the misery that reigns in Mol- davia. The land is no where tilled ; all the mer- chandise, especially cloths, have been seized by the Turks, In the streets, which are never remarkably clean, dead horses, half pot rifled, lie about, and only a few half- naked Gvpseys are to be seen. Were not the peasants in Moldavia and Wallachia already ac- customed to live under the severest oppression, they certainly would not endure the tyranny of the Turks; hut as there is very little difference between the treatment they experienced from the Boyars and their Agents, and that they receive from the Turks, and the peasants are so simple, that they have no notion of tbeir melancholy situation, but approach every superior, consequently the Turks, with the most abject humility— they find all this quite natural. As well the peasants as the gypseys have been partly relieved by the Turks from the burden of bringing f up their children, almost every Janissary having ! appropriated to himself some boys and girls, and sent them to his own home. It may be imagined what influence this state of things has on the dull- minded, lazy, covetous Boyar.*, who have a natural aversion from all industry nnd mental occupation, though iu general they are used merely to kill time, aud to live in luxury on the revenues of their lands, and the contributions exacted with great rigour from their inferiors. These Boyars ( or petty governors), who are now almost all fugitives, trouble ^ themselves about political events, and even read the newspapers, which is an extraordinary exertion for them; their entire hope is in the Russians, whom they have not forgotten since 1812 : time will shew how far these hopes are well founded. At this time there are hardly ten thousand Russian troops in Bessarabia, including the garrison of Chotym ; as the resl have settled behind the Dniester, probably from want of forage, and perhaps also to get iuto more convenient quarters." MANCHESTER RADICAL MEETING, We stated in our last Journal, that an action was brought at the Lancaster Assizes, by certain persons who had attended the Manchester illegal meeting held on the 16th August, 1819, against Capt. Birley and other members of the Manchester Yeomanry Cavalry, by which the plaintiffs sought to recover a compensation in damages for injuries they sustained on the dispersion of that meeting by the military force employed by the Magistrates. The trial commenced on Thursday, the 4th inst. and the evidence and addresses of Counsel on both sides occupied the Court the whole of that day, together with Friday, Saturday, Monday, and Tuesday. We have, at former periods, had so much occasion to refer to the history of the 16th of August, 1819, that we shall not repeat the details again brought forward. The case on both sides closed on Tuesday afternoon, the 9th inst. Mr. Justice HOLROYD rose at 20 minutes before 4 o'clock to charge the Jury, and stated that the time had then arrived, when it became his duty to direct their attention to the mass of evidence which had been given iu this case, and to the law as applicable to its several parts. This was an action brought by the plaintiff* Redford, against four per- sons, one of whom, Birley, was captain of a troop of the Manchester yeomanry ; another was an officer of a different troop of the same corps; a third was a private named Oliver; and the fourth was Meagher, a trumpeter; and the action was brought by the plaintiff to recover compensation for an injury which Redford alleged he had sustained hy an assault of its circumstances rendered it clearly illegal, or wlie- it was an exception to them, and only meant for the lawful exercise of the right of petition, the jury must detevniine for themselves by au attentive consi- deration of the voluminous evidence before them in this case. The Learned Judge then enumerated the different heads of the evidence, and commented upon the pre- , vious drilling of parties whe had been at this meeting — their assaults on persons who had observed them drilling— their carrying black and Other flags, caps of liberty,& c.— their hootingat persons in Manchester whom they supposed to be opposed to their views— and their hooting at the Military and Yeomanry stationed near the meeting. His Lordship also re- ferred to the connection which had appeared iri evidence between this and other Meetings, at whiefs Hunt presided— the various associations of the Re^ formers at the period in question, and the evidence which had been given tending to shew their dis- organizing projects— the depositions of witnesses' as to large numbers who attended the meeting carrying sticks, stones, and other offensive weapons," anil their wounding various persons with these weapons, previous to the cavalry acting against them; and having applied some further observations to the case, he left it to the Jury. At six o'clock, the Jury retired for about six minutes, and then returned with a verdict^/ or the Defendants. This memorable trial lasted five days, and it took just six minutes to enable twelve intelligent men to declare, by their verdict, that it ought not to | have been commenced. The hour of delusion has j evidently passed away, and every sober- minded man must feel grateful to those Magistrates and those the said defendants on the 16th of August, 1819, at 1 Manchester. The jury had heard that the defend- Yeomanry by whose firmness a daring enterprise of ants were yeomanry, nnd the law made this distine- j sedition was crushed at once. tion in cases like this— that if they ( the yeomanry) | — mutm went among the people on that day, hy command of I the civil magistracy, and to execute a lawful pur- I pose, and that one of them, while so engaged, j committed an unlawful act, then the others being lawfully employed, and not participating in tbe WARWICK LENT ASSIZES.— The only causes exciting any interest were the two following : Doe ou Dem. of Payne v. Grundy— Tlua action was to recover possession of a close of land, near . ,-„ • . - - . . | i Austrey, devised by Mrs. Dorothy Toone lo the unlawfuljact of one of their party, were not answ- erable defendant, who had formerly been her servant and for his conduct. If others went in a body to do, not . for manv yefUo nf.„. <• • . eir original intent ueing qi! eathed bim £ 200, and by a codicil in 1811, she nthe latter case, if one of , flirther | ieq„ eathed him the land in question and le rest, and does an act not 8ome olhor property. Tlie tWo attPstin^ witliei; ei t<> non design, then they who tlie codici| vve,. e men of t|) e nmn of Robinson'd a lawful, but an unlawful act, then all were by the ! adviser' law held responsible, their beinr alike illegal. But even in the party separate from th in pursuance of the common were so separated from him are not involved in his particular guilt. If the military were called in for a lawful purpose, they were bound to execute the commands of the civil magistrate, and only those who shall act unlawfully in obeying those commands can be held responsible; for ihe law said, a man might act unlawfully in executing a legal purpose— for instance, in the forcible removal of a public nuisance. The learned Judge here recited the pleadings in detail, and commented upon their technical import. In the defence, upon some of these pleas, it was contended that the meeting of the 16th of August, after her confidential friend and By her will, executed in 1802, she be- Robinson and Ryley ; and the only persons present at its execution by Mrs. Tooue were those persons and Mr. Danco ( at that time clerk to Mr. Willington, a solicitor) by whom it was drawn up, and who deposed that Im received instructions from the testatrix to prepare the codicil, and lhat it was executed by her in his presence, with the utmost witlingucss, and with full knowledge of its purpose.— On the part of the plaintiff' it was attempted to be proved, by the testimony of Robinson and Ryley, the one formerly a farming- servant to Mrs. Toone, and the other a blacksmith, that improper and most unjustifiable 1S19, was, if not actually riotous according to law,] influence luld been uu* de use of, both by the defendant at least what was denonunatfd a j and Mr. Dance, to obtain Mrs. Toone's signature to Letters from Calcutta represent the general state of our Oriental Empire as being most pro- sperous. The prejudices of the natives against British manufactures are rapidly receding, and it is confidently expected by the best- informed civil- ians, that the trade from this country will greatly increase, and most beneficially, for our mercantile and manufacturing interests. The Marquis of Hastings ( under whose administration India has attained a degree of prosperity and general tran- quillity, beyond precedent) is indefatigable in his efforts to extend our commerce. He hael dis- patched Mr. Moorcroft, a Gentleman of distin- guished mercantile knowledge and experience, on a mission of a elelicate aud hazardous . nature, which has, however, been happily crowded with unequivocal success. A great market for the manufactures and commodities of Europe is open to commercial communication. Mr. Moorcroft, proceeding through Cachemire, penetrated to the residence of the Khan, by whom he was received w ith great hospitality. Having obtained the sanc- tion of thc Khan for opening a trade with his dominions, Mr. Moorcroft proceeded still further into the country, protected by the powe^ of this Chief, who had also most liberally furnished him with recommendatory letters to other Chieftains, so that no doubt was entertained of the success of I the enterprise. Description of a Turkish Imperial Army of Contingents, required from the Viziers, Pachas, or other Governors of Provinces ; rvritten by an Eye- Witness.-*! The most accurate notion which can be formed of a Turkish Imperial army of provincial contingent troops ( if troops they deserve to be called), must he obtained by comparing them with those bands of armed pilgrims, who, in days of yore, traversed Europe from various countries to St. Jago of Compostelln, or Our Lady of the Pillar in Sara- gossa, to the Holy House of Loretto, & c. See. regu- lating and animating their march by hymns and litanies, their devotions uninterrupted, excepting wlien some traveller was to be stript, or some village to he plundered and burnt. But instead of long trains of peregrinators adorned with crosses and cockle- shells, the Ottoman army exhibits Mahometan monks in party- coloured caps and garments, mounted, as a mark of humility, on asses, marching at the bend of tumultuary columns, flourishing the flags of the prophet, and vociferating prayers and impreca- tions with all their might. Behind these appear the Delis, or select horsemen, who scour and plunder the country on every side. Then follow the Timari- otes, or national cavalry, mounted on horses or mules, which they are bound to provide : but rarely indeed in any other way than at the expense of the lawful owners, who fall iri their route; furnished with pack- saddles aud ropes for stirrups. Last advance the infantry, once the glory of au Ottoman army, but now held as the meanest body in tbeir service. Armed with guns without bayonets, with enormous horse pistols and massy daggers, they press forward in confused crowds, raising clouds of dust, ns numerous flocks of sheep hurried on hy the shepherds. Behind this infantry come the lopgis, or artillery, their guns dragged along by buffaloes, or by Christian slaves equally under the lash. The rear of ihis strange association of barbarians of various countries, languages, and habits of life — some shouting and singing aloud, others firing off' their pistols loaded with ball into the air— is closed by the commanders of different ranks superbly apparelled, and surrounded by multitudes of insolent attendants and servants, liberally exercising their i cudgels on all who do not keep a duly respectful dig'ance from their haughty masters. Notwithstand- ing their brutality, yet it is under the protection of these attendants that the Greek sutlers and can- teeners, the Jew furnishers of clothing ( old or new), the gypsey blacksmiths, conjurors and fortune- tellers, poultry- stealers, and ( when requisite) exe- cutioners, place themselves. No Turkish army ever takes the field without Jewish contractors and furnishers; for they supply the Spa his and Timariotes with harley for their horses, and bread- corn for the men ; unless the army be to remain for some time in one position; when the surrounding country, friend or foe, is equally laid uuder contribution. When on a march, the army halt for the night, and the attendants are employed to set up tents for the commanders ; the bazaars, or markets, are opened in various parts of the camp. The scouring parties produce the sheep. See. they have stolen ; I he gypseys open their bags of poult ry, often suffo- cated by the sulphur burnt under the trees or roosts to bring them down; tbe sutlers and coffee- men display their stores and stoves ; the Jews their scales for exchange of money; the soldiers sing to the sound of their lute; the seraskier or commander holds his court; the great men give and receive visits of ceremony :— but all this time no outposts, not even a sentinel, is appointed ; every one lays him down to rest under the protection of that fatality in which the essence of Mahometanism consists. and one which might become riotous if permitted to carry its object into effect; and that they ( the Yeomanry) were called in to disperse such meeting by tiie order of the magistracy. There were other parts of the pleas which led to a great deal of evidence— namely, that there existed a previous seditions conspiracy to excite discontent in the minds of the King's subjects, and that divers persons were at that meeting engaged in the designs of the con- spirators. Now upon the subject of the drilling, it was right he should tell the jury that whether the j drilling was clandestine or not, if it was intended for the purpose of overturning or overawing the civil government, then it was unlawful. A great deal of evidence had been adduced for the purpose of showing that the magistrates' warrant could not he executed without the aid of the military. 1 As to what constitutes, in the eye of the law, an illegal assembly, he could not explain the point more clearly than it was laid down hy his learned coad- jutor ( Mr. Justice Bayley) at a former trial in York. In the first place, a riot consisteel of three or more persons unlawfully meeting together, wiih or without cause of quarrel, so as to endanger ihe King's peace. A riolous ussembly was where the parties met for a common purpose, intending to do something in a riotous manner, but yet not remaining long enough to • accomplish it. An unlawful assembly was any meeting convened under such circumstances as the law could not with safety to the public allow: he would state to the jury some of the circumstances which brought a meeting1 within the scope of the law, and constituted an unlawful assembly: nnd here, again, be begged to be. undeistood as speaking in the language of tiis excellent coadjutor, who had favoured him with some notes of his charge on the trial at York. According to the opinion of that Learned Judge,-— an opinion since confirmed by all the Judges of the Court of King's Bench, and adopted by that Court, any meeting was unlawful which assembled to sow sedition and bring into hatred and contempt the constitution of the country. Then to ascertain how far this meeting of the 16th of August came within any of these descriptions, lliey must look at the mode and manner of its assetnhlin — what were all attending its organ who brought the divisions to the meeting were the banners, and how the bearers of Ihem eon- ducted themselves on that occasion,— who had been drilled, and what was the apparent object of that drilling. The learned counsel for the plaintiff had truly said that drilling might be innocent; hut was it so here: Drilling was a part of military discipline, and regulated under the prerogative of the King— a prerogative, it was true, regulated in modern times under the controul of Parliament. Formerly the King's military tenants, uncontrolled by the authority of Parliament, and holding their estates in fee, were hound, by their tenure, to give the Kiug their mili- tary service when required; and they were even bound in many instances to assist the civil power of tlie country in the performance of its civil duties; and be found to his surprise, when he had occasion in the former case of Sir F. Burdett, in which he was i counsel, to refer to ancient records upon the species of servicc required by the military tenures, that in several statutes of the Henrys and Edwards, Officers were appointed expressly to go about the country, I aud see that the military tenants of the Crown had j their armour, arms, horses, kc. ready and in fit condition; and for what purpose?— to assist the j sheriff', who was the King' civil officer, to raise the j posse comitatus. l! e stated this to shew how early the military authorities had been called in aid of the , civil, for tbe purpose of executing the law. Indeed, 1 he hardly knew how the posse comitatus • could he j uow called out; he knew not how the sheriff was to ! raise them. Referring back to the question of drilling, he must say, that if the object of it were so to arrange the the codicil. The evidence of these two witnesses was, however, so contradictory to that of every other witness called, as well as to that of each other, that Mr. Juslice Best desired, at the close of the examina- tion, they should not be allowed to leave the court. — Upon ihe Jury returning a verdict for the defend- ant, the Judge inquired if the Counsel of the latter would prosecute them for perjury, and on receiving* a reply in the affirmative, they were forthwith com- mitted to gaol on his Lordship's warrant. [ It is stated, that at the moment these men wera committed, a person informed the Court that the plaintiff', who was apparently in good health in the morning, had died suddenly at one o'clock that day,] FARRINGTON V. LILLY and ANOTHER.— This was an action against the defendants, Mr. Charles Lilly and John Cave, of Coventry, for enticing tyid seducing tbe plaintiff's servants from his employment.— Mr. Serjeant Vaughan, in stating the facts of the case for the plaintiff, as afterwards proved in evidence, said that he did not seek exorbitant d amages ; the prin- cipal object of his client was lo suppress the com- bination of the ribbon weavers iu Coventry, by whom a society had beeu formed for the support of those who refused to work at prices less than those fixed for the various kinds of woik, bv a list agreed to between the masters and men in 1819.— The defend- ants were described as the treasurer and secretary of this society ; the former, Mr. Lilly, had at one lima heen a master ribbon- manufacturer in Coventry, hut was now retired from business, and lived upon his fortune. The plaintiff was a manufacturer, princi- pally, of what are termed doubles and galloons; ho had not, however, agreed to the list prices. In con- sequence of this, his men were enticed, or induced by intimidation, to quit his employment one after another, until at length he was unable to meet the demands of his customers and London agent, who were therefore compelled to make their purchase* elsewhere. By this means the plaintiff had sustained very serious injury, and this injury was laid in the declaration as the ground of special damage.— No evidence was offered hy their Counsel, Mr. Denman, ou the part of the defendants. In charging the Jury, loue arm ot us assemming Mr. Justice Best thanked the plaintiff that he had the circumstances preceding and | mtj t|, e „ erve t0 resjst jbe combination of which the animation— who were the leaders defendant Lilly had become the tool; adding, that i divisions to the meeting— what jle deserved the thanks of his fellow- townsmen for bringing the action— The Jury, which was special, after consulting a few minutes, returned a verdict for the plaintiff— damages £ 50, costs 40s. The first prisoner put to the bar at these Assizes was Richard Richardson Burgess, charged with uttering a forged £ 5 Bank of England note at Leam- ington, he knowing the same to be forged, of which he was found guilty.— William ./ uddr charged with a similar offence at Biinklow, was placed at the bar on Thursday. The case for the prosecution having closed, several very respectable persons appeared to the character of the prisoner, who was however eleclared guilty by the Jury, though recommended to mercy on account of the excellent character he had received.— The Judge, when about to pass sentence, i said, after a short pause, that iu consequence of the good character he had previously borne, he would | give ihe case his most serious consideration before he did so. Jndd was then removed from the bar. He I had, throughout the trial, displayed no visible emotion, and heard the evidence adduced with the 1 utmost composure.— This trial excited great interest, i as the prisoner was well known in the surrounding neighbourhood, and the Court was crowded to excess. Judd was formerly a respectable farmer at Radford, hut has latterly been a butcher at Leam- ington. WARRANTS OF ATTORNEY.— A very import- ant Bill is now before the Legislature, for preventing the injustice which is frequently done to creditors by secret Warrants of Attorney, whereby persons in a nartiei Vt tiie meeting us to secure, by a confidence i ^ of insolvency are em. ble. 1 to keep up the HI t! eir own number,, an attention to the speed, e, to appearance of he. njf ... Rood cue,. instances, and he be then mad.'! and ' having tbe uhi. nate object „ f j person, hol. l. nff sueb Warrant, of Attorney have the they had in view by u Puwer ot taKing tne property ot sucn insolvents m • execution at any time, to the exclusion of the rest of the creditors. To remedy this, it is proposed to be enacted, that all Warrants of Attorney, or a true copy, with attestation, the defeasance, indorsements, & e. shall, within days after completion, be filed, together with an affidavit of execution, in the Court in which ' judgement is intended to be entered up; tion to co- operate in the attainment of its object were I and any seizure made under a warrant not so 61- d, equally criminal. The appearance of the » . rcli„? | « » . b?. d! ® ™ e_ d fm" d" 1fnt- a" d tl » c of bi, nk- attaining the complete purpose demonstration of their strength, then such a meeting so got; together was clearly illegal. If from the general appearance and all the accompanying circumstances of that meeting, it excited reasonable grounds of alarm and apprehension, then it was generally criminal and unlawful, and all persons at- tending it in such a manner as to evince a determina VVe understand, that many of the most eminent Physicians and Surgeons have of late recommended thc use of COCKLE'S COMPOUND ANTIBILIOUS PILLS, in such cases of Diseased Liver and obstinate Bilious Affections, as have hitherto resisted the usual means of cure; there can be no doubt, therefore, that this medicine possesses vir- tues, greatly superior toiisy ever before offered to the public notice; and as it exerts a peculiarly specific action On the liver, it removes at once every predisposition to disease. We are assured by a most respectable chemist, who has subjected this medicine to the strictest analysis, that he has not been able to discover, in its composition, the least trace of mercury, or of antimony, but that he finds it composed entirely of vegetable matter. aud the intentions of fhe parties could only he col- lected from evidence. If these were of such a nature as, when taken together, to excite alarm, then it was for the jury to say w hether it did not become the bounden duty of those who were sworn to keep the peace, to take such steps as were calculated to avert from the peaceable inhabitants theflpprehended mischief. It might be, that had they refrained from doing so, they would have incurred ( as Kennett, Lord Mayor of London had, in the year 1780) a criminal prosecution. At that period Lord George Gordon, the brother or sou of the then Duke of Gordon, had collected together an immense body of people, ostensibly for a lawful purpose : it was to petition Parliament not to repeal certain acts on the score of religion in favour of Catholics. After accompanying Lord George Gordon with that pelition to Westmins- ter, they committed several acts of violence, burned houses, broke open and fired one of the prisons, and , did immense injury for three days to public and pri- vate property, until at length the military were ordered into the city, where they acted, and by doing military execution upon the rioters, nt length sup- pressed the tumults. A prompt and timely interpo- sition of the civil power might have prevented these consequences; and for not acting with firmness and due precaution the Lord Mayor was fined £ 1,000. Now, Lord George Gordon's first meeting in St. George's fields was for'a purpose ostensibly legal, but in its conduct it had subsequently incurred the penal- ties of the law. The Spa- fields meeting was also convened for a legal purpose, and yet they saw how a party of those who were concerned in that meeting broke out from the spot, and carried riot and tumult into the city. With reference to the chaiacter of the Manchester meeting, and whether, like the other?, rupts 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 ac- tionem, instead of a Warrant of Attorney, to CQIIT fess judgment, ii is further provided that this in- strument shall be filed in like manner: if given oa any condition, the same also lo be filed. The re- maining clauses enact, that ltie officers of each Cour% keep a hook, containing particulars of each Warrant of Attorney and cognovit— allowing a fee for filing—* copies to be given from the offices— satisfaction may be entered on Warrants of Attorney and cognovits* On Wednesday last, the Lord Mayor of London held a Special Court of Aldermen, at Guildhall, for the purpose of electing a Recorder, in ihe room of* the late Sir John Silvester, Baronet; when New man Know lys, Esq. Common Sergeant) was unanimously elected Recorder, and took the usual oath.
