PRINTED AND PUBLISHED BY D. WALKER AND SONS, VOL. CI.— NO. 521 I.] MONDAY, \ I* I ( SUCCESSORS TO R. RAISES,) WESTGATE- STREET. ' APRIL 22, 1822. [ P rice Seven- fence. THURSDAY'S POST. LONDON, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 17. 1822. AMail arrived yesterday from Constantinople with letters to the 12th ult. Another note was pre- sented to the Divan on the 10th by the Austri- an, English, and French Ambassadors in con- is notion, calling on them to order the immediate evaeua- flon of the principalities ( Wallachia and Moldavia) by the Turkish armies, as the only mode of avoiding hostilities. No answer to this had been returned on the 11th.— A tu- mult among the Janissaries, which at one time threatened dangerous consequences, is said to have occurred on the 8th ult. but the Government acted with such promptitude wid vigour, that the tumult was immediately suppressed: sixteen of the ringleaders were punished with death ; and about 150 more were imprisoned, for greater security, on board the ships of war in the harbour, till their punish- ment could be determined.— The Turkish Government was making large purchases of corn for the supply of their armies; rendered necessary, no doubt, by a large force brought into the field to act against the Greeks, and also as a measure of precaution— the Russian ports in the Black Sea being their chief reliance, and those likely to be closed against them if hostilities should break out. His Majesty's frigate, which is to convoy Sir G. Nayler to Denmark, sails in the course of next week. It is com- manded by a son of Earl Spencer, and his Lordship, merely for the pleasure of the voyage, will accompany his son. The letters from Norfolk and Suffolk are far from being satisfactory. Two men were executed at Norwich on Sa- turday, for firing a stack- yard at Diss, a few weeks ago. One of them died very penitent, hut the other was in good spirits, and attempted to justify his conduct. On Friday there was a great riot at Wrentham, close to the property of Sir T. Gooch. An express was sent to Nor- wich for the Lancers, and their interference dispersed the assemblage. Mr. GoOch, the Member for the County, and Chairman of the late Committee of the House of Com- mons on Agricultural Distress, was present, and read the Riot Act himself.— A General Meeting of the County of Norfolk will probably be soon called, to petition for Par- liamentary Reform, as a Requisition to the Sheriff is in the course of signature. The first name on it is Lord Suffield's. Mr. Coke, and almost every Gentleman of any consequence, signed it on Saturday, at Norwich. A respectable Correspondent informs us, that there is a manifest error in attributing - he retirement of Sir B. Bloomfield, from the office of Secretary to liis Majesty, to certain secret influence. The King's Ministers protested against the continuance of an office, in which were vested all the State secrets, without one atom of responsibility. His Majesty very reluctantly yielded to the remonstrances of his Ministers.— Morning Chronicle. In Saturday's Gazette, his Majesty's pardon is offered to « sy one concerned in the robbery of John Godfrey, sur- veyor of the Bristol roads ( as noticed in a former Paper), except those who actually ill- treated the said John God- frey and his wife, who shall discover his accomplices. And a reward of 20/. is offered by tbe Commissioners of the said Roads, and 32/." 10j. by the parishioners of Bitton. Madame Catalani, it is reported, has netted upwards of 7000/. by her recent provincial excursions. The Winter Theatres are in future to close by the end of June, and not to open until the 15th of October. The little Theatre in the Haymarket is to open about the end of May, or beginning of June, end to cease performances by the 15th of October. All the restrictions upon per- formers at Drury- Lane and Covent- Garden, preventing them from playing at the Haymarket Theatre, are to be taken off. All the minor Theatres are to be brought strictly back to their original rules, and their licences confined to the exhibition of spectacle, and to recitative in dialogue. Vauxhall Gardens, bought in by the proprietor at the Auction Mart, have been let to Messrs. Bish and Gye, of the Tea Company, at a rental of 180H/. The Platoff, a brig of 280 tons, on Monday, sailed from Harwich to Iceland for a cargo of ice, the scarcity of which, from the mildness of the season, will cause much incon- venience to the salmon trade. From the annual bill of mortality, for last year, we learn the singular fact, that the population of Liverpool has de- creased during the year 1821— the births decreased 89, while the burials increased 340. In the marriages there is also a decrease of 21. From a Return of tile number of Convicts sent out of the United Kingdom from Jan. 5, 1816, to Jan. 5, 1822, it appears that the number of males has been 15,218; fe- males only 1,155. The stock of a farmer in the neighborhood of Malmes- bury, who entered. upon his farm about four years since, with a property to the amount of 7,000/. was last week dis- trained for rent! Monday so'nnight, a flock of about thirty swans made their appearance, hovering about the river Southesk, be- tween the bridge of Brechin and the Castle- pool, Scotland. One of them, supposed to have been wounded, was unable to wing its way with the rest of its companions, and alighted on the river, where it was shot. This rare and beautiful bird weighed upwards of 24. pounds, and measured seven feet and a half between the tips of the wings, and four feet ten inches from the bill to the point of the tail. It was given to Mr. Ross, of the Swan Inn, who is to have it stuf fed. The rest of the flock returned in about two hours, in search of their wounded ( but by that time dead) com- panion, went away sorrowful, returned again, and then bade a final adieu. This part of the county was visited by a heavy storm, of thunder, lightning, and bail, on Friday afternoon. In the neighbourhood of East Sutton it was particularly se- vere. An oak, standing near the residence of the Rev. Mr. Prosser, at that place, was struck by the electric fluid, which ran from the top to the bottom of the tree, and a ewe and two lambs, which were reclining beneath, were killed on the spot.' The force of the fiery element was so great, that a groove, some inches wide and deep, is formed Sown the body of the tree, and the branches were torn off and carried some distance from the spot. The hail- stones which fell are represented to have been as large as mar- bles.— Maidstone Journal. A gentleman residing in the new Claverton road, near Bath, observed, at about twelve o'clock on Saturday night, the 13th inst. a magnificent meteor, ( the largest seen per- haps since the year 1780,) which emitted a more brilliant light than the Moon at the full, and exploded with the splendour of lightning, and with a report equal to that of n large rocket, though it was at a great height. The me- teor spent itself in a north- east horizontal and silent flight, and terminated its exhausted course by gentle and en- feebled undulations, with little or no tail; Its apparent size was about half that of the Moon. The ignited mass which steered against the breeze, was nearly as luminous as the disk of the sun ; and it graduated in to a rich orange red. At the time this sublime spectacle was seen, the sky was quite clear. The schooner Olive Branch, of Teignmouth, P. Maun, master, fro » i Liverpool, bound to Bristol, with a general cargo, was brought into Ilfracomhe in a sinking state. She was seen near Lundy Island, by a Pill pilot skiff, with her colours in the shrouds, and when boarded, the crew were about to quit her, the boat being hoisted out, and their clothes placed therein. By great exertions at the pumps, and the skiff towing, the vessel was got into har- bour. When the tide ebbed from her, it was discovered that five holes had been bored from within, through her bottom, to sink her : three are in the Captain's state room, and two in the lockers in tile cabin. The vessel is the sole property of the master, and is insured at Lloyd's. The mate ( the Captain's son) has absconded. A circumstance of a very extraordinary nature transpired in Pembrokeshire last week. Daniel Evans, of Llanuw- chan, near Fishguard, impelled by a benevolent wish of providing a coffin for the interment of his wife, ( who was then considered dangerously ill, but is now in a fair way of recovery), went to the above town for that purpose; but, s0 narrow and imperfect is human foresight, and EO liable are we to be imposed upon, that, after having com- pleted the bargain, he became- intoxicated, returned home that evening, and at ten o'clock the following morning, he himself stood in need of the same article, which was untimely intended for his beloved spouse^ At a meeting at Fakenham, Norfolk, on Wednesday, to consider the agricultural distress, and at which a petition and a resolution for reform were agreed to, Mr. Coke observed, he had been long enough in Parliament to see through the tricks which are played oft in that House. Some of the County Members, to throw dust in the eyes of their constituents, would now and then vote against Ministers; but it was only when they knew the ma- jorities would be large on their side, and that therefore they could be spared. But when a division was to take place in which the Administration expected to be close run, then came forward the whipper- in of the House, and informed those Members that they could not now be spared. " What a state of degradation is this to be in, ( continued Mr. C.) and are we to be told that the House . does not want reforming ? I say it does want reforming. When on a former occasion 1 had a petition to present, I was insultingly told by Lord Custlereagh that the names were not respectable. Gentlemen, they were the names of yeomanry ; and if that class of men, such as I have now the pleasure to see round me, be not respectable, who are ? I consider the yeomanry not only a respect- able class of men, but the pride of England, and when I attend with the petitions from the hundreds, I will not forget to throw back the reflection in his teeth. When in the House, at. the time I allude to, Lord Castlereagh made me room on the Treasury Bench, and while sitting beside him, his Lordship said to me, Mr. Coke, you have devoted much of your time to agriculture, and no man is a more competent judge, why do you refuse to be one of the Agricultural Committee ? I replied, because, my Lord, I do not wish to cheat my constituents; and on my shewing him the petition, he said, there are no respectable names to this, i was about to reply., when his Lordship with a great deal of apparent good nature, stopped me short by saying, Mr. Coke, what appear- ance have the crops in Norfolk ? This is the way, gentlemen, that they trifle with your difficulties, and laugh at you." IRELAND.—( from the Limerick Chronicle.)— For months past our columns have presented details of outrages and barbarities, which, on a retrospect, form a frightful mass of ac- cumulated crime ; but, we trust in Cod, this scene of horror is nearly at an end. This day we have a truly pleasing duty to MONEY. ANY Sum from £ 300 to ,-£ 4000, may be had on ap- proved Freehold Security.— Apply to the Printers ; or to Mr. Watkins, Stationer, Cirencester, if by letter, free of postage. IF JOSEPH WATKINS, late a Private in his Ma- jesty's 10th Regiment of Hussars, ( the son of JOHN WAT- KINS, formerly of Trebincon Farm, in the parish of Llantillio Pertholey, in the county of Monmouth, farmer, and only surviving brother and Heir at Law of John Watkins, since of the same Farm, who lately died intestate,) will apply at the office of Messrs. B. and ' 1'. Gabli, Solicitors, Abergavenny, he may obtain information that will tend to his advantage.—— Abergavenny, April 11, 1822. THE - ' perform. , the diabolical acts committed m the county since the commence ment of the disturbances. In addition to this, it is also gratifying to learn, that quantities of arms have been surrendered in various parts of the county, and the peasantry voluntarily come forward to subscribe to the oath of allegiance. Many circumstances have, of course, combined to bring about those desirable objects; and though the awful examples of death that have been made since the Commission and Assizes ought of themselves to have struck ter- ror into the minds of this hapless peasantry, yet it is the general opinion that, the operation of the Insurrection Act has been the more effectual persuasive, as it powerfully pressed down at once upon the offending ranks, with all its dread effects— the father, the mother, the sister, and the brother, have been doomed to exile in a foreign land. The manner alone in which those sentences have been carried into effect, by instantly sending off the unfortunate wretches from the dock, must in itself have been a great auxiliary to the Act. The influence of the Roman Catholic Clergy upon their respec- tive flocks, with whom they have been unremittingly engaged in exhortation and prayers, has also mainly contributed to this pros- pective happy result. The co- operative resident Magistracy, who were not to be influenced by plebeian popularity, have also had their share ill this delighful work. Their own minds tell them they have done their duty, and they seek no other approval. The neuter gender Magisrates were also roused from their lethargy, finding that their silence would not only bring them into contempt with both parties, but render them sufferers in the end, at least such as had property to protect; this class may also seek approval — let them have it, " better late than never." At County Cork Assizes, Timothy Connors, Pierce Nagle, and Patrick Foley, were indicted f'or assaulting and ravishing Anne Tapt and Jane Williams, the soldiers' wives, and, in another, count, f'or aiding and assisting therein. The necessary evidence being given, the Jury, after a short consultation, returned a ver- dict of guilty against Nagle and Foley, and acquitted Connors. The Learned Judge proceeded to pass sentence of death on them, prefaced by a most solemn and affecting address, which was fre- quently interrupted by the sobs and lamentations of the prisoners, who were much affected. When they were ordered to be removed from the bar, Nagle requested to be heard for a few minutes, and silence being obtained, he declared solemnly, before the Almighty, that he had neither hand, act. Or part in the transaction, and was not present at it. He and the other convict were then removed ; but their cries were heard for a considerable time after, mixed with bitter curses on the Peelers." At ten o'clock on the night of the 5th instant, W. Nash, Esq. chief officer of the police stationed at Roscrea, having heard some shots near that town, proceeded immediately with a'party to the quarter whence they were fired ; at a distance of about a mile from Roscrea, he met two men on one horse, challenged, arrested, and searched them. In the breeches- pocket of one, the son of a very reputable man, was found a manuscript book, emblazoned with various devices, and containing the oath, pass- word, and a com- plete system of insurrectionary organization. It would appear from this document that a general union and consolidation ot the several systems which have for years back distracted various parts of Ireland, have been effected ; but, it is asserted, that this docu- ment, which is entitled " the constitution and catechism of the White Boys," is a fabrication, for the purpose of playing off a hoax upon the barony - constable. DISTRESSES IN IRELAND The South of Ireland is now in the most deplorable state, owing to the system of outrage, which has checked all industrious exertion, and to the occurrence of a calamitous and unproductive season. Thi following description of tile state of tbe poor in the county of Clare, is from a most re- spectable source :—" The extent of the failure of our crops, most particularly the potatoe crop, has exceeded all calculation. Pota- toes, oats, barley, hay, have rotted in such quantities, particularly in the western part of the county ( Clare), that an immense pro- portion of the peasantry are even already reduced to the extremity of want. The cattle arc dying by hundreds. There is one cry of distress from one end of the county to the other. The evil will be, and is, felt in other western counties as well as ours, though not to the same extent— Limerick, Kerry, Cork, Galway, and Mayo; but we are, I believe, by fir the greatest sufferers. Famine, and its certain consequences- pestilence and plunder, will be inevitable, unless some measures are taken to prevent that utter extremity of misery and starvation that must take place in the spring. They have not food ; they will not have seed; the land will be unculti- vated ; credit is annihilated by the operation of the Insolvent Act. Nothing but food will restrain them from acts of violence and des- peration— this is the barrier, as I have before stated to you, and its political importance— and the necessity of preserving it iu tranquillity at such a crisis as this, to prevent the contagion from spreading northward, is evident at a glance. What will it cost Government for the employment of a military force in some time if they allow the people to suffer the extremity of hunger ? As to any effectual relief from the Gentry, the idea is ridiculous ; the evil is of too great magnitude to be met effectually by any such means. The Gentry themselves are distressed beyond measure; there are no rents paying in the country." YOUNG WATSON.— A letter received in Glasgow from Baltimore, dated Feb. 2, says—" You may remember my tell- ing you 1 had seen tile famous Watson, the Spa- fields leader, at Nashville, Tennessee. The subsequent history of this unfortu- nate young man shall fill my sheet, as I have no private business worth communicating. In the fall of 1820, Watson married Miss Mary Poyzer, a most, amiable girl, eldest daughter of an English gentleman of that name, who aided Watson in his escape, paid his passage, and accompanied him to the United States, whither he was then going to take possession of a large property left him by a brother at Nashville. Watson accompanied the family of Poy- zer to Nashville, and got a situation in a druggist's store. Mr. P. discovering in Wat6on. a partiality for his daughter, and this not being agreeable to him, had discharged him from his house at the time I was in that c. nuntry; but the affections of the daughtr.- had been engaged, and she eloped with Watson, and was married to him. The father would not permit either to enter his house. The seeds of dissipation were too deeply rooted ill Watson to permit him to remain steady ; he became an habitual drunkard, ill- treated his wife, and turned her out of doors. The father, moved with compassion at the helpless situation of his daughter, took her home again. In order to procure the means of dissipation, Watson had recourse to stealing, store and house- breaking, & c. At last he was detected, and in December last stood his trial at the Criminal Court ill Nashville. When the Judge inquired if he had any thing to say why sentence should not be passed upon him, Watson rose and made such a powerful appeal to the feelings, as filled the whole Court with tears; even the lawyers wept aloud. Separate sen- tences were pronounced on each offence; for the first, to be hanged on 8th February, ( this present month;) for the second to be branded ami cropt. ( If the first sentence he put in execution, the criminal will be tolerably independent of the second.) Application hassincc been made to the Governor for a reprieve, but it was not granted. The Nashville papers subsequent to the 8th have not yet arrived here; no doubt they will contain an account of the execution. SMUGGLING.— So vigilantly do the Custom- house offi- cers and Preventive Service ' at Brighton watch the smugglers, that the latter complain their trade is not worth following. A large vessel, laden with contraband spirits and dry goods to the value of- 12,000/. which had made several unsuccessful attempts to land her cargo between Rottingdean and Worthing, was Captured in the offing of Brighton on Saturday night.- A celebrated smuggler, in Sussex, has lost by seizures, at sea and on shore, in the course of the last winter, upwards of 30.000/.

MARRIAGE OF UNITARIAN DISSENTERS.— Mr. W. Smith obtained leave to bring in a Bill for altering certain points in the 26th Geo. II. commonly called the Marriage Act,— Adjourned. THURSDAY.— Mr. Calvert presented a Petition from St. John's, Southwark, praying, that London Bridge should not be taken down, but that other means of opening the Bridge might be adopted; particularly the removal of the enormous wheels belonging to the Water Work Company; and that in future the Company should be obliged to work their water by steam— After a few words from Mr. H. Sumner and Sir W. Curtis, the Petition was received. On the Order of the Day for the second reading of the South- ampton Gas- light- Bill; " Mr. K. Moore moved, that instead of now, the Bill should be read a second time- this day six months— Sir J. Yorke said, he hail moved the second reading of the Bill; but had 110 objection to withdraw the Bill. Gas- light was the only light not taxed ; the light of Heaven was taxed in the share of a Win- dow Tax; the fat of rams and of bulls was taxed in the shape of a candle; and the whale was taxed in the shape of oil; and he thought those who speculated in it should be left subject to com- petition, and not protected by Act of Parliament i » charging what- ever price they thought proper.— Mr. Alderman C. Smith could not consent to have the Bill withdrawn ; he would, therefore, move as an amendment, that the Bill be now read a second time. — The Speaker said, Gentlemen were not perhaps aware of the state ill which this Bill stood : if they carried the Amendment they would render the Mover of it answerable for the fees of the second reading.—( A loud laugh on ati sides of the House.)— The Amend- ment was then put and negatived, and the Bill ordered to be read a second time this day six months. PUBLIC ACCOUNTS The Chancellor of the Exchequer rose to move for a Committee to examine into the best means of keeping the public accounts, in pursuance of the notice which he had given. The accounts were at present made up under the provisions of several Acts of Parliament, which might be altered with advan- tage. Ha wished that the accounts should be simplified and brought into a- more mercantile - shape; that a statement should be laid before Parliament, shewing the annual income and ex- penditure, with a view of the debt, in one short abstract. He moved for the appointment of a Select- Committee to consider the best mode of simplifying the annual accounts laid before the Houses of Lords and Commons, relative to the National Expen- diture and National Debt, and lo the Trade and Navigation of the United Kingdom Mr. Maberly did not rise to object to the motion, but to express his happiness at. finding that the Right Hon. Gent was at last alive to the fallacy of the system upon which the public accounts had been hitherto kept. He thought they were indebted to the balance sheet laid before the House last year, for the present motion; and if the accounts were kept upon that principle, the change would be a very advantageous one to the. public. It would enable country Gentlemen to see at once the state of the public income- and expenditure, which they were now prevented from doing by the difficulty and the trouble of investi- gating financial papers.— After a few words from Mr. Grenfell and the Chancellor of the Exchequer, ill explanation, the motion was agreed to, a Committee was appointed, and the several Acts relating to Public Accounts were referred to the Committee— Adj. Mr. Ricardo has just, published a Pamphlet on " Pro- tection to Agriculture, which cannot fail to make a great impres- sion at the present moment. He divides his subject into nine sec- tions; commencing with Observations " On the Remunerating Price," and concluding with " The connection between Distress and Tax- ation." Ill recapitulafing bis opinions, at the close of the Pam- phlet, he attributes the present depression of Agricultural produce to the general prevalence of abundance, arising from good crops, and large importations from Ireland. " The fall has been in- creased by the operation of the present Corn Laws, which have made the price of corn in average years, greatly to exceedtbe price in other countries : and therefore, in proportion as it is raised- liable to greater fall." He proposes that to obviate, as far as it is practica- ble, this evil, all undue protection to agriculture should be gradu- ally withdrawn. A monopoly of the Home Market should be given till corn reaches 70s. when all fixed price and system of ave- rages should be got rid of, and a duty of 20j. the quarter on wheat imposed. We must, however, proceed farther, fhe duty of 20*. should every year be reduced Is. till it reached 10J. This duty is rather too high as a countervailing duly for the peculiar taxes on the corn- grower ; " but," he observes, " 1 would rather err on the side of a liberal allowance than a scanty one." Ashe had fixed the duty rather too high, he proposes that the drawback on exportation should only be 7s. PARIS GENERAL POST Office.— In the sitting ofthe Chamber of Deputies, on the 12th inst. on the proposition of a grant for the Post Office, M. de Girardin rose to denounce the sys- tem of espionage, which, he contended, was exercised in that esta- blishment— Under the ancient system, observed M. Girardin, let- ters were unclosed; and at the epoch of the exile of the Parlia- ments it was done in so scandalous a manner, that the merchants of Rouen took the resolution of simply closing their letters with a pin. It was remembered in the convocation of the States- General and all the Deputies were required to declare against the violation nf the secrecy of letters, ancl to exact that it should be respected. The Constituent Assembly, penetrated with this principle, ren- dered it sacred by the celebrated discussion which took place in the sitting of the I7th July, 1789. It was then supposed that the intercepting of some letters might discover the authors of a plot which had for its object to surrender the port of Brest. Several Deputies proposed that the letters should be opened for this pur- pose. Chapelier exclaimed, that the violation of the secrecy of correspondence was a crime, and that in no case could public safety require such a sacrifice on tha part of virtue. 1 allow that letters were opened under the Government of Napoleon. That was cer- tainly a great evil; but they were only opened at t'ne Paris post- office. The secrecy of correspondence was respected in all the country post- offices. Now, however, letters are opened in the de- partments. The secret bureau is supported at a great expense by the Government. At least 30 clerks are employed in it. I can tell you who pays them the money they receive. I can also tell you that a passage from the cabinet of the Director of the Posts leads into the secret offices ; the entrance of it shut by a con- cealed door. As soon as this is opened, we find ourselves in the offices of persons charged to- discover the keys to the different ci phers employed in the correspondence, or in the work- shops of en- gravers occupied in taking impressions on plates of lead of the im- pressions. of the aims and seals which are employed to secure let- jers. These letters are finally carried to a kind of a laboratory, where there are instruments of a very peculiar construction— close ( ires to melt the wax, and cauldrons of boiling water to loosen wa- fers. In short, all is mystery in this subterraneous asylum ; and men employed tb discover the secrets of every body are themselves a secret to all the world. M. deG. then moved the suppression of the secret bureau. A discusion arose On arose, but it came to no result.

Greig, from London to Bombay, was totally lost on Inaccessible Island, one of the group of Tristan D'Acunha, in the South Atlantic Ocean, on the 23d July last. The Commander, Officers, and passengers got safe on shore, but eight of the crew perished. They remained on the island exposed to the cold and rain until tltb Nov. ( four months') on which day the carpenter and three or four of the crew embarked in a small punt made out of the wreck with surgical instruments which were thrown on shore, and reached Tristan D'Acunha, where they procured two whale boats, and brought those that remained on Inaccessible Island away. On 9th January, a brig from Bra- zils put into Tristan D'Acunha for water, and took them all away, and on the 18th January they arrived safe at the Cape. The car- penter and boatswain came home in the Phoenix. Captain G. was waiting for one of the Company's ships, hourly expected, when the Phoenix sailed, on 2il February. During tiie time they were on the island, they had no food but. penguins and their eggs. Out of some bales of cloth, washed on shore, they made tents; an iron buoy, sawed in two, was their only cooking utensil. They were for four days exposed to heavy rains and intense cold, before they could procure fire. The ladies and passengers suffered severely, nothing being saved but the clothes they wore, the ship going to pieces two hours after she struck. Captain G. and son were in perfect health on the 2d of February. Lieut. Pepper, of the F. ast India Company's Marine Service, with his wife, were on board the Blenden Hall; they both belong to Dover, and were married only a day or two before they embarked.

Shack- ell Arrowsmith. and Weaver.-* This was an action brought by Mr. Alderman Waithman against the defendants, who are the pro- prie'ors of the John Bull- Sunday newspaper, to recover a compen- sation for injury sustained by the publication of a malicious libel in their Paper, imputing to him the receiving of stolen goods, and also his having committed wilful and corrupt perjury. Mr. Campbell opened the pleadings, and Mr. Scarlett stated the case tq the Jury. The libel in question appeared in the Paper of September last year, and imputed to the plaintiff the having pur- chased some shawls, in the year 1808, that, had been fraudulently , obtained from a Mr. Cooper, in Bond- street, at a price far below their value; and that in his return of the amount of profits under the'Income Tax Act, he had made a false return, and afterwards swore to such falsehood. Witnesses were called to prove the proprietorship of the defend- ants, and the publication of the libel. The libel was then read by the clerk, and also an affidavit of the defendant Weaver, by which it appeared that in July, 1821, the weekly sale of the Paper was from 8,000 to 1( 1,000. This being the -— '•"*" u." v, „„., ... „ - case for the plaintiff Mr. Sergeant Vaughan addressed tile Jury on behalf of the de- fendants ; after which tile Chief Justice briefly addressed the Jury upon the most prominent parts of the case, and they retired to con- sider their verdict. When they returned they pronounced the de- iiudaiit guilty, and awarded 50o/. damages to the plaintiff. CAPTAIN G. M. GUISE, R. N. [ By the kindness of this gallant Officer's much respected relations, we are enabled this week to present to our Readers an Extract froni a very interesting Letter from a Gentleman of great re- spectability resident at Santiago de Chili, inclosing a copy of Official Letters from General San Martin. These Letters ex- press so strongly tile high sense entertained by the General, of the gallantry of Captain Guise, and the esteem in which that Officer is held, that the perusal of them cannot but be very satisfactory to all the Captain's numerous friends— We under- stand, that Capt. Guise is now appointed to the Chief Command of the Peruvian Squadron, in conformity with the expectation entertained by the writer of the following Letter:] « Sin, Santiago de Chili, 10/ A Aug. 1821. " An opportunity offering by the Owen Glendower, from this direct to London, and Captain Guise being still detained in Peru at the pressing request of his friend General San Martin, I take the liberty of addressing you, in the expectation, that I shall pro- bably anticipate him in informing you of his separation from the Squadron ot Chili, under circumstances which have, if possible, still further raised him in the estimation of his countrymen, and of the Country in which he serves. " Notwithstanding the disappointment of his friends here, to see the devotion and zeal with which his gallant career in South America has been marked, deprived of the gratification of sharing ill the last honours of the final reduction of the Spanish yoke in the Pacific ; yet, on a review of the circumstances under which Cap- tain Guise found himself placed in respect of Lord Cochrane, we must rejoice that he has taken advantage of tlie present moment finally to separate himself from his Lordship's command, and there- by to avoid coupling his name and character with transactions which must eventually end in disappointment. " The manly independence and generosity of the private and public conduct of Capt. Guise, by which he lias been so eminently distinguished, and tile popular opinion and attachment of this country, by which he has been so long supported, seem to have provoked unpleasant feelings in the mind of Lord Cochrane; and to have induced his Lordship to seek to conceal the merits, and destroy the reputation of one equalling himself in bravery and en- terprise, and, in the opinion of the Captain's friends in this coun- try, far surpassing his Lordship in all those relations ot life which claim the applause and esteem of mankind. " Captain Guise, in bis official letter to this Government, hav- ing taken a detailed view ofthe last affair which terminated in his withdrawing himself from Lord Cochrane's command, I take the liberty of enclosing you a copy of it for your information, and also Of the original letters of his friend General San- Martin, by which you will observe the. high place he holds in the estimation of that celebrated Chief, and of the Army which. he Commands. " By a letter which I have received from Capt. Guise since I left him in Peru, he informs me of the offer made to him of the com- mand of the Peruvian Squadron which will be formed on the fall of Lima. This command, he writes to me, it is his intention to accept. It will separate him altogether from Lord Cochrane, and place him in such a station us he is so well known to deserve." The following are the Official Letters to which the foregoing Extract refers: " MY DEAR FRIEND, Ingenio, March 12,1821. " When the sacred cause of Liberty calls loudly for the assis- tance of our brave Naval Officers, and glory is waiting for them off Callao, I know I can rely on my friend Captain Guise, who holds amongst them a very high place. " You will do me the justice to believe, that I am incapable of inciting to a base action, a person deserving my esteem. I only Invite you to shew yourself generous, and to be crowned with the laurels of honour. Lord Cochrane has declared to me that he does esteem you ; that he is fully aware nobody can worthily fill your place; and that he regrets very much what has occurred. Lastly, ' he assures me to be ready to a sincere reconciliation. Should you assent to it, and condescend to sail in the O'Higgins, Lord Coch- rane promises to let you re- assume the command of the Valdivia within ten or twelve days, and to allow your Officers to return to the last ship, after a short time, which is necessary to ensure future subordination. " I am positively informed, that two Spanish men of war are very near arriving off' this coast. Liberty is in danger should they . escape destruction ; and their destruction is quite certain, if Lord Cochrane's arm be supported by the arm of Captain Guise.— Call . you be deaf, my dear friend, to the call of humanity, glory, and fenerosity ? Could you neglect the most ardent wishes of General San Martin and of the whole Chiefs of the Army, interested in your serving again under the banners of Independence ? No, no : I know your character and your feelings too well to doubt a mo- ment, that you will rush forward, ready to forget whatever is past. The Squadron must sail to- day— there is not a moment to be lost, and I am waiting widi great anxiety for your answer, which I beg you to transmit, through Col. Guido, 1 hope it will bo such as to confirm me in tile idea 1 have always entertained, of your being a well- wisher to the South American Cause, and a warm friend of u Your most affectionate and obedient Servant, To G. M. Guise, Esq. § c. " JOSE DE SAN MARTIN." " MY DEAR FRIEND, Ingenio, March 13, 1821. " Your resolution has fully answered my expectation ; and I see with pleasure, that I have not been blinded by my esteem to- wards you, when I flattered myself with your sacrificing all private feelings to the public good, and to the love of glory 1 Please to accept my most warm thanks, for your assenting to my own and ' the Chiefs of the Army's wishes. Such an important service, such a noble act of generosity, shall never be forgotten by the Country, much less by your obliged and sincere friend, « To G. M. Guise, Esq. " JOSE DE SAN MARTIN."

Such sport does not often happen to the lovers of angling. GENERAI, QUARTER SESSIONS. Our Quarter Sessions for the County commenced on Tuesday Ia~ t, before the Rev. Dr. Cooke, Chairman, and a full Bench of Magistrates. The public business was brought to a close on Fri- day, and the prisoners, 21 in number, were- disposed of as follows : SEVEN YEARS TRANSPORTATION— Anne Hillings alias Prince, for stealing a dressing glass, tea- tray, and other articles, from the shop of J. Boucher, of Cheltenham ; and Nicholas Clark, for stealing an end of superfine cloth from the workshop of Messrs. Long, of Wotton- Underedge. IMPRISONMENT— Two years, at Horsley, Robt. Pouting, for uttering counterfeit coin at Cheltenham,— Six months, and to be whipped, Henry Gormond, for stealing a couple of fowls, the pro- perty of S. Warren, of Clifton.-— Three months, Thos. Baldwin, an accomplice with H. Gormond, above- mentioned ; and Jas. Al- len, for an assault on I. Woodfield, constable of Bisley, ill the exe- cution of his duty; ( the former to be once whipped.)— Two months, at Northleach, Joseph Rose, for repeatedly leaving his wife and fa- mily chargeable to the parish of Longborough— One month, Sa- rah Phillips, for stealing a quantity of woollen yarn, the property of W. Walker, of Randwick.— One week, at Lawford's Gate, Wm. Barrel, for an assault on T. Bowbar, of St. George's. Wm. Lane and Wm. Hare, for want of sureties, were remanded; John Rowland, John Fletcher, Jas. Osborne, . Wm. Pick, Hester Wood, John Low, Wm. Gimore, Geo. Garlish, Thos. Hunt, and Richard Jones, were discharged by proclamation. The attention of the Court was taken up nearly the whole of Thursday by an appeal, in which Rowland Davis, of Ross, was appellant against a Conviction by the Rev. C. Sandiford and. others, under the Act 52 Geo. III. cap. 92, ( being a revenue act,) for using a dog for the destruction of game, without having obtained a cer- tificate. The following brief statement' appears to comprise the circumstances of the case. Mr. Cooke, attorney, of Ross, a quali- fied gentleman, and agent to some estates in that neighbourhood, had desired the appellant, to borrow of Mr. Haines, also a quali- fied man, his greyhounds for the purpose of sporting. Davis procured the dogs and accompanied Mr. C. to Clearwell, where lie assisted in beating, and was told to do nothing without the di- rection of Mr. Cooke. It seemed, however, that having coursed a hare across some land of Capt. Haffenden, Mr. Cooke rode after one of the dogs which had not returned, and whilst he was so ab- sent, Davis was proved by Capt. Haff'enden to have beaten two fields, which was deemed, by the majority of the Bench, a sporting by Davis, without the protection of Cooke. The Court, however, were divided in their judgment, fifteen Magistrates voting that the conviction should be affirmed, and five for its being quashed, Mr. Cross, however, appealed to the Court that the question of " Presence and Protection" ought to be set at rest, and that this was a proper case for the Court to raise the question how far the actual eye and constant presence of the qualified master was neces- sary for the protection of the unqualified temporary servant. The Court granted a case for the Court above, At our City Sessions, 011 Monday, the only prisoners for trial were John Joy and Wm. Terrett, for assaults on J. Pil- ling and W. Davis- They were both found guilty, and sentenced to three months' imprisonment; and we trust that this conviction and punishment will have the effect of breaking up the gang of dis- orderly persons, of whom the prisoners were the ringleaders, who have for a longtime past infested our streets at the close of the evening, insulting and annoying the peaceable and well- disposed part of the community. We are assured, that it is the determina- tion of the Magistrates to visit, all future offenders of this descrip- tion with the utmost severity of the law. At Wilts County Session, held at Salisbury on Tuesday, ( Lord Folkstone in the. chair,) 19 candidates presented themselves for the office of Governor of the House of Correction, Devizes; among whom were decayed gentlemen, officers of the army, far- mers, & c. & c. Mr. Cocks, the late acting Governor, was elected by a large majority. There were also twelve candidates for the oilioe of Keeper of the Old Bridewell, Devizes; of whom, R. Gre- gory was elected. At the Groat Sessions for Glamorganshire, Chas. Ed- wards, labourer, for stealing ten sheep at l. langafelach, received sentence of death ; the Judge, however, held out hopes of mercy to the unfortunate man. Three prisoners were sentenced to im- prisonment ; Wm. Thomas, charged with manslaughter, was ac- quitted ; and John David, farmer, of Pantscawen, charged with stabbing and maiming his wife, was proved to be insane at the time he committed the act. CARMARTHEN ASSIZES— Commenced on Monday last, before Chief Justice Heywood and Mr. Justice Balguy— John Davies, indicted for the wilful murder of Wm. Thomas, in the borough of Carmarthen, in January last, ( as mentioned at the time,) was acquitted, on the ground of the medical men being unable to swear that the blow given by the prison- ir produced death Jas. Morgan, a blind harper I tried for the wilful murder of Jacob Wil- liams, at Llangaddock, was found guilty of manslaughter, and sen- tenced to twelve months' imprisonipent,—- Michael O'Connor and John Phillips, for breaking into the shop off. E. Parry, of Car- marthen, and stealing a quantity of goods; and John Jones, for stealing eight sheep from the park at Middleton. Hall, the property of Sir Wm. Paxton, were found guilty, and received sentence of death, The two former were strongly recommended to mercy by the prosecutor ; and the Judge said it should be attended to— David Daniel, for stealing tallow from his master, at Carmarthen ; Thos. Quin and Daniel Davies, for receiving the same, knowing it to be stolen; and David Rees, for stealing wearing apparel at Glanbrydan, were ordered to be imprisoned six months, and kept to hard labour— Elizabeth Richards, for stealing linen, the pro- perty of Lord Dynevor, one month's imprisonment— On the civil side, eight causes were tried, three of which by special juries, but none possessing public interest, except that of Evans v. Griffiths, for defamation, in imputing to the plaintiff the commission of a horrible offense. Verdict for the plaintiff^ damages S0t On the 30th ult. the brig Lovely Emily, Capt. Daniel Sydal, was lost with all the crew, on her passage from Swansea to Hayle. ... COUNTY OF. MONMOUTH.-— At the Quarter Sessions, held at Usk on Monday last, a ground plan of some proposed ad- ditions to the Gaol at Monmouth was submitted to the Bench, in consequence of a presentation of the Grand Jury. The adoption of this measure, however, was strongly and successfully resisted by Mr. Moggridge and. other Magistrates ; the former expressing his unalterable determination, to prevent., to the utmost of his power, any further expenditure oil the Gaol of Monmouth, ex- cepting only in. necessary repairs; which latter, he sair, had been shame! fully neglected, whilst the County money had been expend, ed in additions, unnecessary, unauthorized, and illegal! Hecon- cluded by moving, tliat the expenditure on the Gaol at Mon. mout. li be strictly limited to substantial repair ; and that a Committee be appointed to consider whnt further repairs are necessary, and to order the same to be executed. Jas. Thomas, Esq. seconded the motion, which was carried by a considerable majority. A Com- mittee was then appointed ( the first meeting on 8th May, at Mon- mouth,) and notfee of receiving proposals for replacing by con- tract the decayed defences of the yards was ordered to be given. A requisition to the High Sheriff, to convene a Meeting of the Owners and Occupiers of Land as speedily as possible, for the pur- pose of taking into consideration the present distressed and dis- turbed state of the county, was signed on the bench by a large number of Magistrates, and is now in the course of signature. In the western part of the county of Monmouth, we regret to state, the refractory workmen have been increased in number by some thousands from the Rock, Tredegar, Sirhowey, and Pont- y- pool works. The Scotch Greys have remained at Abergavenny ; and the knowledge that the County Cavalry are on the alert, and that application has been made for some infantry, deters from ac- tual violence ; but this state of things, it is feared, cannot last. In the daytime, the men spread themselves through the county, and solicit charity, with which they support their families; in the even- ings they blacken their faces, assemble on the hills, and use the most horrible threats to deter those, who think half a loaf better than no bread, from working Under the regular prices.

GLOUCESTERSHIRE MAGDALEN ASYLUM. FIRST ANNUAL REPORT. The first Annual Report of this Asylum, which has commenced active operations only six months, cannot be expected to contain much matter of general interest. At all times, charities of this na- ture have but few details to present to the public calculated to com- mand attention, their proceedings being necessarily conducted with ft more than ordinary regard to privacy, for the most obvious rea- sons. Their friends and benefactors, however, may justly demand such a general statement of proceedings, as shall shew that their liberality has'been faithfully and carefully applied; and your Committee cheerfully rise to meet this call, animated by the hope that their Report will not only prove satisfactory in this respect, but serve further as an encouragement to prosecute this work and " labour of love" with fresh energy, and enlarged munificence. Our infant Institution has begun its career of mercy. Tbe doors of this bouse are open to the repentant daughters of woe. Within the protection of this tranquil Asylum, and far from tbe din of abandoned companions in vice, a small family of returning peni- tents, alarmed at the prospect of misery before them-, and tired of the ways of iniquity, have already been admitted, and are con- stantly taught, to find in the exercises cf repentance and prayer that peace of mind, and that gladness of spirit, which not all the intoxi- cating pleasures of sin nor " even tbe world itself call give." Your Committee deem it a matter of sincere congratulation, and they desire to acknowledge it with praise to Almighty God, that the Magdalen Asylum has commenced its labours under circum- stances far more favourable than its warmest friends ventured at first to anticipate; and they hope they shall not appear presump- tuous in attributing its origination to tbe gracious disposals of that Divine Providence, which ordereth all things, both in heaven and in earth, and to whose glory all good counsels, and all just and truly charitable works, ought to be ascribed. The Magdalen So- ciety has begun well. It has been established in a manner highly honourable to your city. It is in possession of a house and pre- mises, particularly eligible and commodious. The house is sub- stantially built, its rooms lofty and of large dimensions, and con- sidered of sufficient capacity, without additional buildings, to re- ceive at least twelve women. The whole expence of the purchase of the house and premises, furniture, and necessary repairs, has been defrayed from the donations. To this auspicious commence- ment of our Society, the important sanction and vigilant superin- tendance of our revered Diocesan, together with the unremitted personal exertions of our Chief Magistrate for the past year ( Sa- muel Jones, Esq.) have mainly contributed. At an early period of tbe year, aCpde of Laws and Regulations for the direction of the public and domestic affairs of tbe Magda- len, were drawn up, rc » i » cd, and afterwards received the sanction of a Special General- Meeting, held at the Tolsey. Much time and attend ™ was given to this important subject: and every plea- sure has been adopted which thesforesight of your Committee, aided by tiie experience of several long established Eemale Peni- tentiaries, could suggest, in order to secure success, as far as suc- cess lies within their reach, and to preclude, according to their power, disappointments, from which no human institution can ex- pect to be exempt. The first female penitent was admitted on probation in October last. She has conducted herself with great propriety, expresses deep sorrow for her past life, and thankfulness fbr tbe protection and kindness she has experienced at your bands. A t her first ad- mission she was quite unable to read ; but now, by her diligence, makes progress in reading, attends to her appointed work, and is submissive to all the rules and regulations of the house. May the God of Mercy shew her the evil of the ways of sin, and make her a true penitent, and ft humble disciple of tbe Saviour of silvers ! Seven women in all have been admitted. Two have been dismis- sed ; one of whom, by her resoluteness to avoid her former vicious companions and habits, affords reason to your Committee to hope that she derived benefit in this Asylum. The remaining five, now in the house, continue to conduct themselves in a becoming man ner, and arc well reported of by the Ladies' Committee, and by tiie Matron, for their diligence and improvement in needle work. A small sum has been received already, as the first fruits of their labour; and altho' it cannot be appealed to as affording, by itself, a proof of their diligence, yet, considered in connection with their small number, and tbe generally uninslructed state of that descrip- tion of persons who fall a prey to the arts of seduction, and that slccjjlr- iouted indisposition to labour, which is one of the most al- arming precursors of evil amongst the younger females of the poor, it will shew that industry and good discipline have already been resorted to as means of reformation. Industry and discipline are the grand instruments, subordinate to religious ii* truction, of pro- moting mora! renovation, audof effecting permanent good. Cha- rity, indiscriminately administered, and unaccompanied by perse- vering efforts to lecover the mind to a love of employment, habits of temperance, and purity, must fail. But it has generally been found, that the real objects of pity are not averse to employment, because they have - begun to know the misery of idleness, nor do they quickly conceive disgust at discipline when it is tempered with kindness. The friends of this Institution may render it an important ser- vice, by sending a supply of plain needle- work to the care of the Matron, under whose inspection it will be done, and charged at the usual urices. Respecting the funds, the Committee are happy to state, they' have been adequate to the beginning of our work. The benefac- tions and donations already received amount to 1230/. 17. » . Id. The annual subscriptions amount to 234/. Mr. OA The Socio- ty's warmest acknowledgements are due to several distant, and, ill 60mc cases, unknown friends, for very liberal benefactions. The amour. tof the congregational collections from rKolt-.- nhrun. TowV*'!. bury, Do. rs'ey, Wotton- Underedge, Northlesch, Thornbury, Stroud, and from several churches of this city, is considerable. These collections, it is hoped, will in most cases florr annually into your treasury, the Institution being open to the whole county ; and by a union of all our county towns in the same plan, enable you to take full advantage of thiseommodioui house and excellent premises. Nothing is wanting but funds to empower your Com- mittee to increase the number of admissions. At present they are insufficient to support tlie. number which the bouse in its present state will admit. The Committee wish particularly to direct the attention of the friends of tbe most wretched of their race, to this statement, and, at the same time, earnestly renew their appeal to thoscwho have not hitherto contributed, respectfully soliciting them to step forward in this eause of general philanthropy, and, by con- secrating a small portion " f their gold and silver to this Christian undertaking, obtain the " blessing of her who is ready to perish." The haunts of v; ca are crowded with degraded females. Many frequent by night the most public places of resort, spreading, wherever they go, an infection the most corrupt and ruinous; and not. a few unwary youths, on whom parental affection is wont to concentre its fondest earthly hopes, fall victims to this " pestilence that walketh in darkness."— It will be unnecessary to extend these remarks, a\ Iressed to the friendsof virtue and religion, the lovers of peacc, order, and purity, tbe parents of tender youth, about to enter on the slippery p » th3 of life. A city distinguished as this is by its Public Charities-— by its stately Infirmary— by its Asyluni for those who labour under mental infirmities or derangement— by its Societies for preserving tiie sacred rest of the Sabbath, for circulating the Scriptures, and conveying to the most distant ha bitations of the world the blessings of our National Faith, will never suffer this Institution to appeal in vain, nor cramp its ener- gies by an insufficient supply of means. The prevalence of this class cf depraved women, in most populous towns, is too mani- fest ; but it is, at the came time, cheering to find, that the neces- sity of adopting speedy measures for their reformation and instruc- tion, is more generally acknowledged. In the immense town of Leeds, where of late years this evil has grown up to a fearful mag- nitude, the most vigorous efforts have of late been made to repel its overwhelming and pernicious consequences; and withiu'a few months, and stimulated, it is believed, by your example, a Guar- dian Asylum, similar to our Magdalen Asylum, has been esta- blished : and your Committee rejoice to be informed, that well- directed means are now in operation in a neighbouring city, for tbe attainment of the 6aroe object. The necessity of applying an effectual remedy is proportionate to tne extent of tiie malady. The evil is great by general acknowledgement; the labour of removing it must be arduous also. All attempts of this kind may be consi- dered as fruitless, by unreflecting persons; but your Committee pledge themselves not to desert their task, so long as their services be required. Be it ever remembered, that man is an immortal being. The sole object of this Institution, is not to restore repen- tant females to the comforts of respectable society, and to their friends: this is an important part of our plan, but not the whole. Tbe great seopc of our labours, and prayers ought to be their " re- pentance towards God." Tlie everlasting happiness of some puoi outcasts of society, who now frequent our streets, as they pass on with rapid step to that eternal state where no acts of pardon are past, where is 110 work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor repen- tance, nor any thing for the impure and impenitent, but darkness, despair, and everlasting woe, may be connected with your efforts. The work is a work of difficulty. This is generally tbe case V'here extensive good is aimed at. Rut. tbe reward is great too: for he that " turneth a sinner from tbe error of his ways saveth a soul from death." It is not hopeless; formally instances art known where the most ignorant of these female penitents have become, by tho Divine blessing, wise, in tbe highest sense— the most dis- solute, pure— and the most abandoned, lovers of peace, order, and godliness. We must leave it to another period to record what, portion of success shall be granted to ail ordinary share of prudence, firmness, and kindness, in the conduct of this Institution, when exercised in dependence on the power anil grace- of God. But were exam- ples much more rare than they really are, the duty. of Christians would remain unaltered, and tbe obligations to seek out tbe wretched and to saMe tbe lost from entire ruin of body and soul, could not be dissolved- Very happily for us and for them, it is not impos. stole to do good to such out- casts. To suppose sucii ail impossi- bility, is surely an evidence of- inacquaintance with the force of Scriptural motives, and the mighty power of God. What mortal man shall presume to draw that black line of reprobation, beyond which, the arm of infinite nltrcy cannot rcach and deliver. " That which is impossible with men, is possible with God." " The same Almighty band,"*— says an excellent writer, referring to this sub- ject, that can unwiud, Jbose close and clinging wreatlis with which the love of gold twines itself around the " heart of man, that can make that heart of man, in which the image of Mammon was once the sole object of worship, a temple of the living God, can also break tbe strongest bands of sens:; il indulgence ; can purify tlie unclean, and tuna those lips, once conversant only witli blas- phemy and ribaldry, to prayer and praise." - » Marriott's Sermon in behalf of the Devon and Exeter Female Penitentiary, MATCH TO COVENTRY.— Mr. Courtenay, a farmer, un- ' ' ilertook on Tuesday, to start to Coventry, from Mile- end, New- Town, near Bow, end. return in three days.

Murray, Sir John Sewell, Longueville Clarke, and Joseph Budworth Sharpe. The indictment alleged that the defendants, being evil- disposed persons, and designing to usurp several of the prerogatives of the King, and to bring them into contempt, to subvert public justice and the liberties of the realm, and to oppress certain individuals, and to extort from them money, goods, and chattels, did conspire to threaten to indict, and to indict, divers of his Majesty's sub- jects for the publication of pretended seditious and treasonable li- bels, they ( the defendants) not. being personally aggrieved by the pretended libels, nor being required to give evidence respecting them, nor holding any office under the Crown ; and also, that they conspired to extort money, goods, and chattels from certoin per- sons, under colour and p'retence of abstaining from further pro ceedings against them, and- for so abstaining to proceed. There were various overt acts of the conspiracy laid iu several counts. There was also a count lor administering an unlawful oath ; counts for extortion without laying the conspiracy ; and a count for com- pounding prosecutions to tbe prejudice of public justice. Mr. Scarlett opened tbe case in an eloquent speech. He stated that the accusation was made by no one concerned in tbe publica- tion of libels, or desirous to support them ; but it was appre- hended that the conduct of those who were tbe defendants on this record— conduct far different from their professions— brought tbern within the lash of the criminal law of the realm. The defendants were members of a body calling itself the Constitutional Associ- ation, which, considering the Officers of the Crown inadequate to the discharge of their high and momentous duties, had associated for tile purpose of quickening the course of tbe criminal jurispru- dence of the realm. Regarded in this light, the institution was pregnant with danger, not because it was a crime to entertain an opinion of tbe inefficiency of any public officers, but because it was fearful to think of a voluntary association usurping to itself func- tions of this delicate and awful kind. Crimes were divided into two • classes— those immediately affecting individuals, and those which, like treason and sedition, affected tbe public generally i the latter it was the ancient practice of the Constitution to regard as peculiarly under the controul of the officer of tbe Crown. And this course was eminently just and wise; for if functions requir- ing the utmost coolness, delicacy, and discretion in their exercise, were rashly wielded, society may be torn up by tbe roots._ The Learned Gentleman then referred to former periods of our history, when a commission 10 enforce penal laws was given to two men, of whom all had heard— Empson and Dudley, whose proceedings created the most extensive disgust, and who were at last culled on 10 for the mischief they had done. . Empson made a speech before the. Privy Council ill his defence, in which he urged that he only put the existing laws in force; yet he and bis colleague were convicted and beheaded. The offence of which the present defendants were accused— that of using the law oppressively for corrupt purposes— was a crime both by common law and statute ; and he would now state the particular instances on which it was founded. Tile first was that of a man named Atkinson, who ne ver was indicted at all, but was arrested ON an affidavit made by Mr. Sharpe that he had been guilty of libel. After passing the residue of the day and tbe night in custody, he was brought be- fore a Judge, and offered sufficient bail; but Mr. Murray insisted on his forty- eight hours of notice, and be was committed to Horse- monger- lane gaol, where he remained five days. While he was in prison, a friend interfered and procured his liberation on con- dition of his giving up his stock of what the Society thought sedi- tious, and taking an oath to sell N0 more. No less a sum than 18/. 18s. Sd. was demanded afterwards by Mr. Murray, for the expences of a prosecution ill which no indictment had been found ! but he afterwards consented to take 51. This was not all; seve- rities, such as the public functionaries would disdain to employ, were used agah. st defendants. . Mr. Thelwall, for example, learned by accident that, he was indicted : his solicitor on the Friday sent a letter to Mr. Murray, couched in the most gentlemanly terms, stating that his client was ready with sufficient bail, and request- ing that he might not be harassed unnecessarily by an arrest. Mr. Murray sending no answer, a formal notice of bail was given ,- yet, on the Monday, Murray, resolving not to waive a drop of blood or an ounce of flesh, sent a bailiff that very night to Brix- ton, where Mr. Thelwall resided, and arrested him m the midst of his family and pupils. Mr. Dolby was near accepting tbe So- ciety's terms. They required him, among other concessions, to stipulate not to publish any work that they should deem impro- per. To this most extraordinary stipulation Dolby objected, and Mr. Murray wisely drew back. Of a man named Turner it would be shewn, that 24/. was demanded for costs, and that the prosecution was carried on upou his refusal to pay. Mr. Scar- lett concluded by observing, that if the defendants were suffered thus to proceed, they would soon become the virtual licensers of the press, and when they strove to displace that leniency which was a Government's truest safeguard— when they strove to awaken animosities by prosecuting all that the wisdom of Ministers had passed over, and which their prurient imaginations deemed sedi- tious— they were attempting to destroy the most sacred bond be- tween the Government and the people. James Atkinson, William Bradshaw, James Batson, Thomas Dolby, John Thelwall, and other witnesses, were then called, who described the transactions stated is Mr. Scarlett's speech. Mr. Gurney then addressed the Jury for the defendants. It was, he said, admitted, by Mr. Scarlett, that any one might le- gally prosecute ; it, was therefore equally legal for individuals to associate for such a purpose, and such Associations were not, new. In our own times there were many founded on the same princi- ples ; one of the most beneficial of which was the Society for the Supprestion of Vice. The Association had not prosecuted the in- nocent, but for such a mass of sedition as bail never before met their eyes, and ill every case the proposition to negociate came from the defendants. Money had been received only for the costs which it, was usual for the defendant lo pay. whenever a prosecu- tion was stayed by his desire. Mr. Gurney complained that Mr. Scarlett had called the defendant Sharpe a libeller, and a bankrupt commission- agent, and Murray an attorney in no great practice. In stopping the prosecutions Mr. Murray acted against his inte- rest ; because his profits must have been larger had they proceed- ed. The question was not whether the Association was expedient or not, but whether these most respectable individuals had abused the laws of their country for purposes of oppression and of gain : the charge was not only not proved, but disproved by the prosecu- tor's own evidence. The Lord Chief Justice shortly summed up tbe case to the Jury; and having stated the nature of tbe indictment said, that as there was no evidence against Mr. Clarke, one of the defendants, he might be altogether left out of their consideration. The first count alledged a conspiracy to indict for the publication of certain pre- tended blasphemous and seditious libels ; they ( the defendants) not being affected by the libels, nor legally authorised to prose- cute for the publication of them. By the law of England, every person had the privilege of bringing an offender to the bar, to ans- wer for the crimes he might have committed That was the prin- ciple and the practice. In the present instance it was done, not by an individual, but by a number of persons associated together for the purpose of bearing the expences of prosecution themselves. Though the legality or illegality of the Constitutional Association formed no part of the case or) which they were to decide, still, knowing that the present trial was to be brought forward, he had looked into the authorities on the subject. he had no hesitation in saying, that. be saw no dictum in any of the books which af- forded the least ground for pronouncing such an Association an unlawful one. It was therefore his duty to tell the Jury that he considered it not to be illegal. If, however, instead of carrying on prosecutions for the suppression of crime, of blasphsmous and seditious publications, they instituted them for the purposes of lucre and gain to themselves, or for tbe oppression of individuals, they who so acted were criminal. But it was to be observed, that in every case mentioned, the proposal for an arrangement pro- ceeded first from the parties themselves, against whom proceed- ings were commenced, or who had been threatened with prosecu- tion, and that one of the conditions invariably required by the de- fendants was, that the. obnoxious publications should be given up. They would judge whether this mode of proceeding was consis- tent. with tbe motive alleged in the indictment, that of extorting money. It was not material by whom tbe present charge was in- stituted against the defendants." It had been acknowledged that he, or they who instituted it, was unconnected with the parties immediately concerned as plaintiff's. The third count charged the defendants with instituting prosecutions for tile purpose of extort- ing goods, chattels, and money. If the Jury were satisfied from the evidence, that such had been, tbe ease, tbev ought to convict tl\ am. The fourth count charged thera with threatening to insti- tute prosecutions for the same purpose. With respect to the fifth count, that of administering unlawful oaths, there was no evidence. His Lordship, having attended to the other counts of the indict- ment, and gone through the evidence, said, that tho' the Associ- ation was not illegal, there might be doubts as to its expediency. With the expediency or inexpediency of it, however, they had no- thing to do. That, he thought, depended on the manner in which the objfet of it. was carried into effect. If, however, the professed object, was not the real one, if the object, in truth, was to extort money by instituting, or threatening prosecutions, it, was crimi- nal. > This, he thought, was the point to which the Jury were to apply their minds. The Jury retired for about a quarter of an hour, and pronounced the defendants Not Guilty. The foreman said, at the same time, that they considered the conduct of Mr. Murray somewhat harsh, in refusing the bail of Mr. Thelwall. The trial lasted from nine till near six o'clock. COURT or CHANCERY, MONDAY.— The Lord Chan- cellor sat for the first time after the holidays, for the special pur- pose of hearing the cause of Cocks v. Somers Cocks. It came on be- fore his Lordship for further directions on a question arising out of the construction of a will. It appeared that Doctor Nash, the father of Lady Somers, bequeathed certain estates, called the Strensham ana Eckington estates, Worcestershire, to trustees, to pay her Ladyship a certain annuity, with the remainder to her se- cond son by her marriage with Lord Somers. A bill had been filed qn the defendant, who was the second son of the marriage, coming of age, his elder brother being then living, for the direc- tion of the Court, and the Com! decreed that the defendant was entitled to come into possession, preserving the annuity of his mo- ther, Lady Somers. Since that period the elder brother of the de- fendant had died, so that he bccame the heir apparent of Lord So- mers. The present application was made on the part of the chil- dren of the defendant for the further directions of the Court. The only question is, whether the defendant has a life interest in the estates, or that his children take without his having that interest. It is a family suit, and of no interest except to the parties eon- earned. Mr. Home was heard at considerable length for the plain- tiff, and Mr. Wetherell for the defendant— Judgment postponed. THE CHESTER MAIL COACH stopped BY A. BULL- DOG.— As the Chester Mail was passing along Bird- street in Litch- field, on ' Monday last, one of the leaders was attacked by a bull, dogv and literally pinioned to the ground, by the savage animal. The horse plunged considerably, and it was with difficulty extri. cated from the dog; but had not got awav many yards before^ ie dog having obtained his liberty pursued the object of his ferocity, hut was very fortunately stopped in its career by some person 111 the street. No damage, however, occurred, except the poor horse being slightly injured in the mouth. LATE DUEL IN. SCOTLAND— The following is said to be a correct copy of the song, which occasioned the duel, omitting only the name of a gentleman who has had no share in this much to be lamented transaction : WHIG SONG Supposed to be written by one of the James's— cer- tainly not by King- James the First, or King James the Fifth, but probably by one of the House of Stuart. Tune—" Sheriff Muir."

A Scotch Paper called The Thistle says, " We regret to observe, that party spirit should run so high 011 the subject of this unfortunate transaction, as to be still busy in deliberately polluting the source of justice. At first, it was broadly insinuated that Mr. Stuart had taken deadly aim at a man who had intimated to him that he would not fire in return! which in the eye of theLaw and of Reason would have been murder'. ) and now that he has had its day, we are as audaciously as- sured that Mr. Stuart, when on the ground, gave Sir Alex. Bos- well no opportunity of offering an apology, but fired his pistol, and 011 seeing his antagonist fall, walked hastily off, without making those inquiries which humanity should have dictated in such a case. For what other purpose can such statements be ventured in the pre- sent stage of the business, but to excite a prejudice in the public mind, which may possibly interfere with that fair trial to which Mr. Stuart and his second are entitled ? With respect to what actually passed 011 the occasion, it is clear that the public can ne- ver be sure of being rightly informed till they have the statements of the surviving parties themselves; and for that the public must, of course, wait till the parties are upon their trial. One thing, however, we may now state, as coming to our own knowledge from a sourcc of unquestionable authenticity, that Sir Alexander, when spoken to by his friends 011 the subject of making an apology, said, ' That apology was out of the question ; that, after what he had written, he had no alternative but to fight.'" FUNERAL OF SIR ALEXANDER BOSWELL.— The re- mains of Sir Alexander Boswell have been consigned to the tomb; for which purpose the body had been brought from Fifeshire to Auchinleck House. The procession formed and proceeded in this order:— Tlie 1st Regiment of Ayrshire Yeomanry mounted, and under the command of Captain William Campbell, of Fairfield, in reverse or- der, followed by the bugles belonging to the corps. The Tenantry and other Gentlemen of the neighbourhood, to the number of nearly five hundred. The Undertaker and his Assistants. The Body in a hearse drawn by six horses— the whole In deep mourning. The departed Baronet's coach, empty, and in deep mourning. His Groom, and other servants and dependants. His only son, a youth of fifteen, accompanied by Lord Glenlee, Lord ftalniuto, and Sir James Montsomerie Cunningham, in a eoaell and four, In mourning. The Right Hon. Lord Glasgow, the Lord Lieutenant of the county, the Hon. John Douglas, and General Leslie, in a coach and four. In deep mourning. Then followed betwecn twenty and thirty carriages, containing the principal friends of the dec. ea. ied and the chief Gentry of the county, f n this order the funeral proceeded to Auchinleck church- yard, before which the cavalry filed off, and the rest of the attendants proceeded on towards tbe church, the Yeomanry meanwhile rest- ing on their swords. The body was then removed from the hearse and deposited in the family vault under the aisle of the church. This vault is cut out of the rock on which the church stands, and was cleared and enlarged some time since by the order of the de- ceased. RECIPE FOR GRAVEL.— By means of the following im- portant specific, the late S. Rudge, Esq. of Watlington, Oxford- shire, who lived to the advanced age of 90 years, was released from a quantity of gravel, according to his own calculation, equal to half a pint measure. He was a great sufferer from calculous com- plaints, and was accustomed, during forty years of his life, to recur constantly to a decoction, for the formation of which the following receipt, by himself, conveys the most minute and particular direc- tions :—" Boil thirty- six raw coffee berries for one hour, in n quart of soft spring or river water; then bruise the berries, and boil them again another hour in the same water; add thereto a quarter of a tea- spoonful of the dulcified spirit of nitre, and take daily half a pint cup of it, at any hour that is convenient. Its efficacy will be experienced after taking it two months." COMBINATION AMONGST WORKMEN.-— On Saturday five journeymen braziers of Birmingham were committed to prison for six weeks for combining to prevent their masters, J. Kendal and Co.- from employing whomsover they thought proper in their manufactory; and fbr attempting to prevail upon some journey- men working for tbe said J. Kendal and Co. to leave their service because they employed a particular workman. CAUTION.— We are sorry to learn, that this neighbour- hood has, during thelastfortnight, been much annoyed by great num- bers of colliers and ironstone- getters calling at houses and begging, and in some instances demanding relief, under pretence of their not being able to obtain employment; and many of them have even left their homes, gone to considerable distances in tbe adjoining coun- ties, and are living in idleness upon the money which they collect under similar representations, whilst their families have in many instances become chargeable to the parish. We therefore think it our duty to state, that there is full employment offered to them by their masters at a trifling reduction of wages, which is imperi- ously called for by the depressed state of the iron trade, and which will leave them quite as well off, considering the low price of pro- visions, as they ever were. It is therefore earnestly to be hoped that relief will be withheld from them— Wolverhampton Chron. Ten of these colliers, from Oldbury, have been committed to Shrewsbury House of Correction, for two months, for unlawfully leaving their work unfinished. We regret to state that, in consequence of an attempt on the part of tbe masters to make what they deem a necessary reduction in the wages of the Colliers, the great body of that class of work- men have quitted their employment; and, leaving their wives and families chargeable to the different parishes, are wandering in par- tics through the country, raising contributions on the public, under pretence of being thrown out of work by some recent failures. This town and its environs particularly, have for the last week or two been greatly annoyed by their pressing and almost threatening im- portunities. It is to be hoped all persons will refrain from the ex- ercise of such misplaced charity,- and by this means compel them to return to their duty.— Birm. Chron. FOSSIL BONES.— The following is Professor Buckland's Account of a Cave containing Fossil Bones, found at Kirkby Lons- dale, in Yorkshire: " This cave is in the compact coral rag more than 300 feet long, seldom 3 feet high or broad, and its bottom is strewed over with splinters and chewed fragments of bones, and teeth of the following animals:— Hyena, elephant, rhinoceros, hippopotamus, ( all extinct species, and identical with those in the diiuvian gravel, and in th « German caves.) It also contains the bones of tiie horse, ox, three or four kinds of deer, fox, bears, ti- ger, wolf, and water- rat. The bones of bear, tiger, and wolf, are very few ; those of the rats most abundant. The teeth lie loose, the jaws having been gnawed to pieces, and ore in proportion ' twenty times as numerous as the bones, with the exception of as- tragalus, and other solid bones of the corpus and tarsus joints. Tbe hyena bones are gnawed equally with the rest, and not an entire bone, and still less a skeleton, is to be found.— All this was going on in tbe period immediately preceding tbe flood", which extirpated the animals, made the gravel, and filled the bottom of the cave with mud to the depth of a foot, stopping its mouth with gravel; and so it has remained till last summer, when it was broken into by working a quarry, as at Plymouth. Above the mud the stalactite has formed a crust sometimes wholly covering it, and at others only partially ; but not a bone is above tbe mud, or in any other than tlic lower region of it. The postdiluvian sta- lactite, moreover, is in quantity double that of the antediluvian ; and this confirms our best chronologies. The chain of circum- stances is one of tbe most convincing and harmonious cases of evi- dence I have ever known. Even the excrement of the hyenas still remains' in round balls of phosphate of lime, which Dr. Wool- astbn lias analysed, and the Keeper of Exeter Change instantly recognized as that of the hyena. It proves beyond a question that the diiuvian elephants, & c. inhabited England, and were not drifted from tropica! regions, as used to be said. It does not prove that the antediluvian climate was warmer than the present; for these species being identical with those of the Lena ice rock, in Siberia, with shaggy. coats, very like musk oxen, have been Arc- tic species, extending over the nortbern hemisphere, and appa- rently extirpated at, the deluge." . Shrewsbury monthly fair, on Tuesday and Wednesday, displayed a number of excellent cattle, and altho' there were many buyers from Liverpool, & c. yet, their accustomed eagerness to pur- chase is all pone by. Many sheep went off at 4d. to 4J< f. per lb. unshorn ; fat cattle id. to 4J< i.: stores similar to last fair; fat pigs averaged the same prices as lately ; biit stores were brisker. A very large supply of cheese, but little demand, mid a great quantity remains unsold ; skim 2ns. to' 30s. middling dairies 35A-. to 42. J.; best 45, r. to 50s.; of butter, the supply was not larger than usual, but. there were few purchasers, lumps Sd. to " i. tub* 74( 1. to 84.; bacon 4{ d. to 5\ d. hams 5d. to OJri- SINGITLAR AND AWFUL PHENOMENON.— On Saturday afternoon, the 30th ult. as Mr. Hughes, chemist, if Mealcheapen- street, Worcester, was sitting by his parlour fire, in company with liis wife, and a young female acquaintance, Mrs. H. having an in- fant in her lap, they were somewhat startled at hearing a rumbling or rather a bubbling noise, as of water in the chimney; when, almost at the moment, a vivid mass of flame burst into the room, and, rush- ing by them, came in contact with a window directly opposite the fire- place, which it shivered to atoms, and immediately upon gain- ing the open air exploded with a tremendons report. Upon Mr. Hughes's recovery from the consternation, he discovered Mrs. H. upon the floor with the child, and the young lady standing near him, happily all, as well as himself, free from personal injury, but, as will naturally be conceived, in a state of extreme terror and dis- may, and which was succeeded by powerful feelings of gratitude to that Providence who " rules the whirlwind and directs the storm," for his merciful interposition in protecting them from harm during this so solemn and terrific a manifestation of his Omnipotence. No part of the apparel of Mrs. Hughes or the child was touched, but the work upon which the young lady was employed was burnt in her hand; Mr. Hughes's hair was singed, and his clothes ill front so much seared as to be entirely spoilt ! At the time this occurrence took place the wind was exceedingly high. DREADFUL ACCIDENT.— As Mr. Briggs, a hatter, of Brighton, and Mr. Knowles, a farmer at Cowfolk, were returning in a gig from Rottendean to Brighton, at about two o'clock in the morning of the 10th instant, at Black Rock the horse missed his way, and precipitated himself, gig, and riders, from the top of the cliff to the shore, where they were discovered by the officers of the Preventive Service, all dead, and in a dreadfully mangled condition 1 DEPLORABLE OCCURRENCE.— On Wednesday morn- ing the body of' Master Edward Paget Bradford was discovered quite dead, in the front area of his father's house, No. 12, Bryan- stone- street, Manchester- square. It appears that the unfortunate yoang gentleman ( who was spending tbe holidays with his pa- rents) must have arisen from his sleep, ill which state he made his way out on the ledges, and was precipitated into the area, and killed " on the spot. He was only 15 years of age. SUMMARY JUSTICE.— On the 2d inst. Alex. Hill was apprehended at Taunton, in the act of picking the pocket of a far- mer. As tlie Assize was then being holden, a bill was preferred and found against him on the following morning, and he was tried next day, and sentenced to be transported for 14 years. WARWICK ASSIZES.— These Assizes terminated on Sa- turday week. All the prisoners capitally convicted, with the ex- ception of Wm. Judd, for uttering forged bank- notes, have been reprieved. Upon passing sentence on Judd, Mr. Justice Best ob- served, that in consequence of the strong recommendation of the jury, and the excellent character the prisoner had received, he bad given his case the most calm and deliberate consideration ; but his offence was marked by so many features of aggravation, as to ren- der it impossible for him, consistent with the duty he owed to the public, to recommend him as a fit object for the royal clemency. This unfortunate criminal will suffer on Friday next, the 19th of April— Riley and Robinson, the two witnesses committed by Mr. Justice Best for perjury in the cause of " Doe 011 the demise of Payne v. Grundy," have been liberated, the parties concerned having declined prosecuting. At the Lancaster Assizes the Grand Jury found a true bill against Thos. Haigh Midwood, of London, merchant, a bank- rupt, for not surrendering to his commission ; upon which a bench warrant was issued for his apprehension. It is stated that he is now farming in Van Dieman's Land, and that Government have undertaken to fetch him back. At tbe Norfolk Assize, Messrs. Hardy and Co. brought an action against Messrs. Boyce and Co. proprietors of the Yar- mouth Star coach, which, from the carelessness of the driver, was overturned in February last year, and a traveller of the plaintiffs was killed; and they now sought to recover the expences incurred on account of the melancholy event, and also for loss of service. The object of the plaintiffs was stated to be, to obtain some com- pensation for the widow and six children of their traveller, who were left unprovided for. The Jury gave a verdict for the ex- pences. 380/. 3s. 6rZ. and 100/. for loss of service. EXECUTIONS.— On Saturday, Chas. Tayler, convicted of coining, was executed at Stafford. From tbe time of his com- mitment, he never entertained any expectation of escaping the punishment awarded by the law for a crime so injurious to society. Before trial, he avoided the company of the other prisoners, and passed his time in reading and praying, in which he was assisted by the County Chaplain with unwearied assiduity. After condem- nation he was calm, and resigned to his fate, though at times he wept on account of his family, consisting of a wife and eight chil- dren, the youngest only a month old. His wife visited him on Thursday morning, having the infant, in her arms. The meeting was of the most heart- rending description— he was 90 much af- fected that he fainted, and was strongly convulsed. The poor woman saw him again on Friday, for the last time ; and in this trying scene, his fortitude did not forsake him—- The night pre- vious to his execution, he slept from ten to twelve o'clock, and employed the remainder of his time in fervent prayer ; he avowed that lie felt strong confidence in the mercy of God, and had hopes that his many transgressions would be pardoned. Soon after se- ven or, Saturday morning the Sacrament was administered to him; after which he was permitted to take leave of his brother John, for whose fate he had shewn a natural anxiety, by declaring on the trial his brother's innocence, though he did not deny his own guilt. About eight o'clock tbe drop fell; being a stout muscular man he seemed to suffer much, but in seven minutes life appeared to be extinct. The unfortunate man was 36 years of age, a native of Bromsgrove, and had resided at Aldridge about five years; he was ostensibly a small farmer, nailer, and carrier. On Saturday, Thos. Farmer, convicted of stabbing T. Williams, at Stretton; and Wm. Griffiths, for a daring burglary ( with three others) at Cotton, were executed at Shrewsbury. An incredible number of persons arrived from Wenlock, Broseley, Ketley, Ac. to witness these executions, hundreds of women and children were conveyed in carts and waggons; and the scenes of levity, riot, and debauchery which were witnessed on tbeir return in the evening, excited pain and disgust in the mind of every observer. On Monday se'nnight, Thos. Price and John Evans were exe- cuted at Cardigan, for the wilful murder of Thos. Evans. The circumstances attending this murder are truly horrid; having first beaten him with bludgeons, they afterwards returned and brutally ham- strung the unfortunate man, who was, at the same time, begging for mercy ; not satisfied with this, John Evans, who wore sharp pointed shoes plated with iron, kicked him in the forehead, by which he fractured the skull; and, with the assis- tance of Price, threw him over a hedge. They made a full con- fession, in which they stated their reason for so doing arose from an old quarrel, and an apprehension lest he should expose some of their tricks. Price declared it never would have happened, had it not been for his father- in- law ( Evan Evans), who, lie stated, was the promoter of the whole. Price appeared perfectly resigned to his fate, and walked with a firm and steady step ; he ascended the ladder with seeming alacrity, and was anxious for the moment to arrive which would put a period to his sufferings in this world, scarcely allowing the executioner sufficient time to fasten the rope, before he stepped from the ladder; thus launching himself into eternity! Evans was less firm than Price, and appeared in an agony of despair, and with a trembling step ascended the fatal ladder; his groans, until he was turned off, were truly distressing. He wa » a fine young man, and had just attained his 18th year, with a very prepossessing countenance. Price was a strong athletic man, about 8 feet high, and was about 30 years of age. MONSTROUS REVENGE.— Saturday, a master- chimney- sweep, named Richard Smith, was committed from Hatton Garden, charged with desperately wounding Elias Duke, another sweep, on 2/ th March, whilst playing at skittles at the Brewer's Arms, Mutton- hill, owins; to a dispute as lo paying for some porter. He afterwards came behind the prosecutor, made a lunge at bis throat, and falling on the ground in order to avid lighting, while rising, took occasion to plunge a knife ( the blade whereof was four inches and a half long) into the prosecutor's left thigh, and also his side, It was stated by the officer, that the prisoner had been some time ago in custody for a similar offence; and that since be had been in prison on the present charge he was heard to declare, that when at liberty he would do for the prosecutor. PARRICIDE.— Some days ago, a barbarous murder was committed at Kilsyth, 12 miles from Glasgow. A quarrel took place between 11 father and son, under the following circumstances : The father, coming into the house found his son lying drunk, and was angry with him. Some words ensued, hut tiie father, aware of the vindictive temper of his son when 111 that state, left him and went out a little distance from the house. The son soon after got up, and seizing a large knife, which he was accustomed in his drunken fits to wield, rushed out, and going straight- forward to the place where bis father stood, seized him by the throat with one hand, while he made three deep stabs into his parent's bowels with tbe knife, which he held in the other hand. The poor man, who had some distance to walk, reached his house with difficulty, literally carrying in his hands part of his bowels which had ob- truded through the wound. The cruel monster fled, but had the savage hardihood to return on Sunday last, go into the house, and survey the dead body of his murdered father! The murderer has for the. moment escaped ; but the officers of justice are in search of him. It is a lamentable fact, ar. d one which affords another instance of the barbarous and brutalizing effects of illicit distilla- tion, that the unfortunate young man had, for some time previ- ous, been deeply engaged io the system of smuggling, of late be- come so prevalent in this country. ROBBERY AND MURDER.— Mr. Samuel Whitehouse, late of West Bromwich, currier, was robbed and murdered on the night of the 3d instant, on the road leaiUng from the Light- woods to Oldbury and Dudley. The deceased had on that day been shooting in the Lightwoods, in company with a brother- in- law, Mr. Joseph Downing, of Rowley, and after dining with him at the house of a blacksmith named Fox, in the Beech- lanes, tliey left together on. horseback, on their return home, about nine o'clock in the evening; and within the space of half an hour, and at the distance of little more than half a mile from the. cottage of Fox, the deceased was found by a lad returning from West Brom- wich, lying across the road quite insensible ! On being taken up he was conveyed to- the Beech Tree public- house, where he lin- fered in a state of insensibility until Friday morning, when he led. - On examining the body it was discovered that his death Was occasioned by a dreadful blow on the back of the head from some heavy weapon, by which the skull was shockingly fractured. It . was also ascertained that he had been robbed of several bank- notes, his watch, chain, and seals, and a leather shot- pouch. A Jury assembled on'the day'l'ollowing bis death, and was again ad- journed.

It ap- peared, this heroine had braved the hardships of the camp, and dangers of tbe field, with her husband, who was a soldier of the revolution, and the Bill in her favour passed without a dissenting voice.— American Paper. THEATRICAL CHIT- CHAT.— The legitimate stage, if there be any such thing, yields little profit now, either to'audl- cnces or proprietors— one of the minor theatres, tbe Adelphi, being the only thriving concern ; and even their success is owing simply to the famous burletta, " Tom and Jerry, or Life in London which is represented with amazing truth of slang and blackguard- ism. Ir. has run upwards of one hundred nights, and it is yet an affair of peril to squeeze your way into file pit. This Life in Lon- don has been a golden mine to more parties than one. First of all, the publishers of the book, Messrs. Sherwood, Neely, and Co. netted some thousands by it; then, in the early part of its drama- tic career, Mr. Watkin Burroughs performed Jerry with such spirit, and appeared so manly in Ilia street encounters at night, that a lady of large property fell in love with and married him, and he left his part to Mr. John Reeve, who deserves to be equally lucky. The proprietors of the Adelphi Theatre have alTendv re- alized 12,000/. by its representation, and. are likely to get a great deal more. Mr. Pierce Egan, and the Messrs. Cruickshanks have 110 doubt had their share of this good lock, tlio' much of the merit of the thing rests indisputably with the latter. The burletta is worthy of the plates, or rather it is the plates set in motion. Every character is capitally done, with the exception of the Cham- pion of England, who is one of the " persons represented," and - who is made by tlie actor to speak in a Yorkshire, instead of a Somersetshire accent, which is on every account a gross mistake. ' The scene of All Max in the East," is well worth seeing by any OHC who does not mind contemplating filth, and profligacy, and vagabond merriment. The man who performs " Dusty LW makes a wonderful fac. simile of a squalid " coster- monger,'" a being made np of gin, rags, occasional starvation, and perpetual knavery. Tiie drama has fired all the young men about town wiUt ' an ambition for nocturnal " sprees," and for " milling the Char.- lies." The best, however, of the whole business, are the two beau- ' titul women who perform the parts of Jane mid Sue, ( Miss H- im- mcrsley and Mrs. Waylett.) If any man is in doubt about the respective merits of our country- women, and those from foreign nations, let him go to the Opera- Hou. se, ami after looking at the narrow Signioras and Mademoiselles, come to the . Vlelpiii and see those glorious creatures, Jane and Sue, of liberal height and shape, enter the stage from a door of a Somersetshire cottage at dav- brsak, to the tune of » WHEN the rosy morn appearine: " Mrs. Waylett is, alas ! already married, anil therefore cannot c- id in the wife ot a lord or a rich banker, to which her personal me- rits abundantly entitle her;' but then, there is Misn Hammersley f In the " At Home" of Mr. Matthews, he gives tho fol- lowing anecdote;.—" Being put on shore in Ireland, on his wav to seek en engagement at Dublin, he gave a small trunk to a man to carry, who, on their arrival at the hotel, waa not satisfied with the shilling that Mr. M. gave him. " And is this ,-. 11 you're iro- mg tog, me, Mr. Matthews, for bringing that murdering load ?" Mr. M. not a little astonished at the fellow's knowing his name inquired how it could be. " Och I don't I know you well enough Mr. Matthews! and don't I know that your honour' ' ll gi'me another sixpence I"— M. ' Well, if you'll tell me how you came to know me, I wilt give you another sixpence.' " Will yoti though— honour bright ? — At. ' Yes, I will.' " Why then didn't I read your good- looking name on the little brass plate at the top of your honour's trunk '— Blessings on the Sunday- schools fo it!"~ rM'-' Wel1' '' ere's a shilling, give me sixpence back." ,,, , b> t 01 a s, xPence i've K< « ; but I'll run and fetch oae and be back 111— M. • Not got one ! why I saw one in you. f mouth this moment.' " And is it that voii nunc? Would I think ye, be giving your honour a sixpence out of my dirty mouth." — M. Well, keep the shilling.' - Ah 1 good lack anil success to your honour 1— has your mother any more of ye." . We understand that many of tho most eminent Physi- cians and Surgeons, have of late recommended the 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 medi- cine possesses virtues, greatly superior to any ever before offered to the public notice ; and as 11 exerts a peculiarly specific action m the liver, it removes a » once every predisposition to disease. » f arc assured by a most respectable chemist, who has subjected this medicine to the strictest analysis, that ho has not. been able to dis- cover in its composition, the least trace of mercury, or of anti mony, but that he finds it composed entirely of vegetable matter.
